open/close all folders
The younger half-brother of Masaki Tenchi, he has spent his entire life being "educated" in the Masaki household.
- Accidental Pervert
- The Ace
- Almighty Janitor: Before Kenshi reveals that he's a Sacred Mechamaster, he manages to earn this kind of reputation as Lashara's servant.
- Animal Motifs: Kenshi is constantly compared to the Koros.
- Anti-Hero: Begins as a very mild Disney Anti-Hero; he does willing takes part in an attack on Lashara hoping to be returned home, but ultimately refuses to actually kill her when ordered. One Mook-Face Turn later, and he's fully on the side of the angels for the rest of the series.
- Artificial Human: It is revealed by Naua that he is descended from one of the three artificial humans created by the Ancient Civilization to defeat Gaia, which was sent to another world as a last-ditch measure if the other two failed.
- It is hinted that the artificial human in question may be his mother Rea, as a silhouette of her can be seen in episode 11.
- The Tenchi Ban 13.8 doujinshi formally revealed that Kenshi's mother was that artificial human. She was found by Tenchi's mother and adopted into the Masaki clan before becoming Nobuyuki's second wife, explaining the previous revelations that confused the issue.
- Badass Family: Although none of his more familiar relatives really appear, it's clear that he's learned a lot from them (even while he'd been overshadowed by them).
- Beware the Nice Ones
- BFS: The Tenchi-ken, a sword made from a compressed mountain!
- Big "NO!": Has said it four times during the series' run: one involving all the girls stripping him, two involving Mexiah and one involving Flora.
- Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: The boke to Chiaia's tsukkomi.
- Catch Phrase: "I'm sorry!" (Usually when he's being scolded by Chiaia.)
- Chaste Hero: He shows some signs of it, but we can't blame him; he just wants to go home.
- Chekhov's Gun: Prior to him being sent to Geminar, Kenshi was hypnotized by Washu to ensure no one knows they have a spaceship (or any of their outer-space Magitek in that matter). This becomes important in the last episode when Chiaia promises to let him dig all the crystals he wants if he beats Gaia, causing him to form a Light-Hawk BFS and break through Gaia's impregnable armor.
- Chick Magnet
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass
- Embarrassing Nickname: Lithia calls him "wild beast", which later becomes justified following her Noodle Incident with him.
- Even the Guys Want Him: Ulyte seems a bit too friendly with Kenshi.
- Subverted, since Ulyte had been turned as a child into one of the three ancient female dolls.
- Fish out of Temporal Water: In the beginning. He gets better as the series progresses.
- Happy Ending Massage: Turns out his massages give the girls this feeling as an aftereffect.
- Kid Hero: Kenshi is 15, but looks and acts young enough to qualify.
- Magnetic Hero: It's shown and discussed several times in the series that his influence catalyzes those around him into becoming better people and True Companions.
- Meaningful Name: His given name means "Swordsman", referring to his Weapon of Choice.
- Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: In the first episode, he starts out serving the "Masked Knight" (Dagmyer) while trying to assassinate Lashara, in the hopes of getting home. Dagmyer tries to force Kenshi to do the dirty work he failed at, insults him at every opportunity, tries to have him killed when he outlived his usefulness, and adds insult to injury by admitting that he'd never intended to help Kenshi return home in the first place. A few minutes later, Dagmyer's offended that Kenshi decided to betray his "benefactor" and fight his way out of danger.
- Mook Horror Show: Both in and out of his Sacred Mechanoid, Kenshi is a fearsome opponent...and that's before you piss him off.
- Mundane Made Awesome: Kenishi uses his Super Strength, speed, and Badassness to do chores around the school. A lot faster than the staff can handle (ex. by the time it took a maid to finish half her room cleanings, he finished the same number and came to help her). And that mosaic on the arc. While the three artisans are discussing how to replicate the original mosaic on one tower, Kenshi was already done.
- My Master, Right or Wrong: When he's first captured by Lashara, Kenshi plays dumb about his bosses out of honor. Fortunately, he figures out that his loyalty wasn't reciprocated.
- Nature Hero: Even the elves are impressed by how well he knows his way in the forest.
- Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: One-quarter human and one-quarter Jurian on his father's side, and half Artificial Human on his mother's side.
- Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: Back home, he was the runt of the Masaki family. On Geminar, he's practically invincible.
- One-Man Army
- Real Men Wear Pink: Kenshi can cook, clean and kick your ass 12 ways to Sunday.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to Chiaia's blue.
- Short Hair with Tail: Like his half-brother, he also sports this.
- Tyke Bomb: A doujinshi released by series creator Masaki Kajishima revealed that Tenchi's family had deliberately raised Kenshi to prepare him to be sent to Geminar. Since he was never given any information about Geminar, he was ultimately The Unchosen One anyway.
- Unlucky Everydude
- Unwitting Pawn: He was only used by Dagmyer to assassinate Lashara. Even Chiaia points it out during his brief imprisonment.
Lashara Earth XXVIII
Madoka Yonezawa (Japanese), Jad Saxton
The twelve year old queen of Shtrayu, she is a member of the Student Council and Kenshi's prime benefactor during the series.
- A Child Shall Lead Them: She's crowned as the ruler of Shtrayu in the first episode, but Babalun effectively controls the country while she's attending school in the Holy Land.
- Cool Ship: The Swan.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold
- Money Fetish: See below.
- Ms. Vice Girl: She eagerly takes advantage of all the money and status she can get (especially what she can get because of Kenshi), but from the moment she spares Kenshi she shows a deep compassion for both him and Chiaia.

- Phenotype Stereotype: Averted since she's a native of Geminar.
- Please Don't Leave Me: Tells Kenshi this in episode 10 upon realizing that he is a free agent.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to Chiaia's blue.
- Royal "We": The Funimation English translations use this to translate her use of Keigo and the first-person pronoun "ware".
- Shout-Out: Her name is a reference to Lashara Moon and Photon Earth from Photon, another work from Kajishima.
- The Woman Wearing the Queenly Mask: She's not the most regal personality in the world, but it's made clear that a lot of how she acts is because of the weight of responsibility she's had to bear.
Personal bodyguard to Queen Lashara, she is a Sacred Mechamaster and a childhood friend of Dagmyer.
The elder sister of Chiaia, she is an instructor at the Holy Land Academy who appears to specialize in Sacred Mechamaster training, physical fitness and combat techniques.
Lashara's cousin and Princess of Havoniwa. She and Lashara have a rather strong rivalry.
Maria's personal attendant and bodyguard. Yukine is also a Sacred Mechamaster and is shyly in love with Kenshi.
- Action Girl: Maria's bodyguard.
- Animal Motifs: Her Sacred Mechamaster outfit features a butterfly on her back. Her Sacred Mechanoid also has a moth motif.
- Big Damn Heroes: Shows up in the nick of time to prevent the Meteor Fall (which was hijacked by Cordyline and the bandits) from destroying the Swan in episode 10, giving Kenshi a chance to take out one of the reactors that was keeping it afloat.
- Crush Blush: Practically every time she looks at Kenshi.
- Cry Cute: In episode 6 after finding out that her bare breasts are pressing against Kenshi's chest (after being disrobed and pushed by Flora, no less), requiring both Lashara and Maria to comfort her afterwards. D'aww...
- Foil: To Chiaia, as Maria's bodyguard.
- Miko: She may not look it, but she comes from a long line of them back in her homeland who were able to communicate with the Goddess, just like Real Life mikos with the kami.
- Rei Ayanami Expy: White-haired, stoic and dutiful, except for when she acts shy in the presence of the guy she's in love with.
- Shrinking Violet: When it comes to Kenshi.
- The Stoic
- Super Speed: Her Sacred Mechanoid has two jets on its back that allow her to travel at supersonic speeds, which played a key element in her Big Damn Heroes moment.
- Tsurime Eyes
Daughter of Lord Naua and a member of the Barrier Workshop. Although also a Sacred Mechamaster, Wahanly is often seen piloting her steam-power Spider Tank
Lithia Po Cheena
Daughter of the reigning Pope and Student Council President. Although she is a qualified Sacred Mechamaster, she is rarely depicted in the cockpit of one.
A dark elf and Princess of Shurifon. A Sacred Mechamaster who sometimes serves with the security detail surrounding the Holy Land.
Holy Land Academy
Voiced by: Yumiko Akaike (Japanese)
The perpetually smiling head of the Holy Land Academy. She was a teacher there when Queen Flora was still a student. The Principal also serves as the head of the student dorms.
Voiced by: Erika Sudo (Japanese), Karen Bright (English)
One of the main supervisors for the maintenance work crews, she has great influence over the backroom staff.
One of supervisors for maintaining the cleanliness of the student dorms. Kenshi was first assigned to her work crew.
Yeliss, Bwoole, Gryno, and Wreda
Yeliss voiced by:
Aki Unone (Japanese), Lindsay Seidel

Yukiko Akaike (Japanese), Allison Sumrall (English) Gryno voiced by:
Ayano Ishikawa (Japanese), Ryan Reynolds (English) Wreda voiced by:
Eri Taruta (Japanese), Michelle Rojas (English)
Four upperclassmen often encountered by Kenshi and company. They are not quite as nice to their underclassmen as they to Kenshi.
Lithia's aide, she was introduced as a victim of bullying by her upperclassmen.
Takayuki Sasada (Japanese), Josh Grelle
A male Sacred Mechamaster from a humble background, he is the only male seikishi who is not part of the male seikishi clique in Kenshi's class and treats Kenshi well.
- Beta Couple: With Hazuki.
- Morality Pet: Episode 6 establishes its characters' moral bona-fides by their reaction to him trying to meet with Hazuki. Kenshi agrees to keep quiet as soon as he hears, tries to arrange for the pair to escape together, and asks his harem to do the same. The haremettes agree, with various degrees of reluctance, because of Kenshi. Dagmyer, who overheard Ceres explaining to Kenshi, dismisses him as a wuss for not taking what he wants, but keeps quiet. On the other hand, Cordyline is introduced helping smuggle Ceres to his rendezvous, but reveals that she's planning to kidnap and sell him.
- Star-Crossed Lovers: Again, with Hazuki, because of his status as a Sacred Mechamaster. This later becomes defied upon joining the Swan (now under Kwnshi's leadership).
- Unwitting Pawn: To Cliff's plan.
Prime minister of Shtrayu who is openly suspected of attempting to assassinate Lashara.
Voiced by: Takuya Sato (Japanese), Duncan Brannan (English)
Son of Babalun, he is an arrogant male Sacred Mechamaster who is often shown to be a lot less capable than he thinks he is.
- Blondes Are Evil
- Char Clone
- Even Evil Has Standards: In episode 11 where he accepted Cliff's heinous plan to lure in (and eventually kill) Kenshi using Ceres as bait with a dangerous reactor strapped to the back of his Sacred Mechanoid. He showed some disgust in the plan, but hesitantly accepted in hopes of it succeeding, even if it means having to kill another Sacred Mechamaster.
- Likes Older Women: Apparently he has a thing going on with Cordyline. It didn't last long.
- Manipulative Bastard
- Overlord Jr.
- The Resenter: He becomes more fearful and resentful of Kenshi as time passes, and it shows.
- Unlucky Childhood Friend: To Chiaia — although she's attracted to him, the rules forbidding male and female Sacred Mechamasters dating freely kept them apart (Ultimately, the problem was Dagmyer's inferiority complex).
- Villain Decay
- Villainous Breakdown: Dagmyer has one spanning most of the series due to growing fear and resentment of Kenshi. It culminates in a Freak Out and complete mental collapse in episode 11 after Kenshi goes berserk in his Sacred Mechanoid, brutally kills one of his comrades, and nearly does the same to Dagmyer, scaring him shitless.
- Villainous Valour: His duel with Kenshi in the final episode is made of this trope. He's still hopelessly outmatched, but he faces his fears head-on and meets defeat with honor.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Dagmyer wants to change the status quo because he's sick of being treated like a stud horse. Too bad he's doing this by following Babalun's orders.
Brother of Babalun and an instructor in the Holy Land Academy. He has a weak constitution and often has to rest after exerting himself.
- Affably Evil
- Best Served Cold: He has devoted the remainder of his life left before Neizai takes over permanently to destroying Gaia — by serving as his right-hand man until an opportunity presents itself.
- Big Brother Mentor: For both Kenshi and Dagmyer.
- The Consigliere: Right-hand man to Babalun.
- Dragon with an Agenda: Although he's one of the top people in Babalun's conspiracy, it's clear that he has plans of his own.
- Good All Along: While made to look like one of the villains, both Ulyte and Neizai turn out to have always been on Kenshi's side. Both simply had to play along with Babalun in order to stop him.
- Sharing a Body: With Neizai/Rea Second ever since her Heart Drive crystal was implanted in him.
- Soap Opera Disease: Collapsed from weakness in the second episode. Another character to feel the benefits of Kenshi's special health drinks.
A mysterious Sacred Mechamaster working for Babalun.
A masked woman who appears to serve as one of Babalun's agents and as one of his Sacred Mechamasters.
- Action Girl
- Cool Mask, White Mask of Doom: She even has a mask on her Sacred Mechanoid.
- Enigmatic Minion: She's part of Babalun's faction, but seems to answer only to Ulyte.
- Good All Along: much like Ulyte.
- Ninja: She obeys several of the tropes, especially when she talks to Ulyte from an unseen location.
- Pet the Dog: She seems to have a soft spot for both Kenshi and Emera, and will reward those that help them with useful-if-cryptic information or well-timed assistance from the shadows.
- Spy Catsuit

A Sacred Mechamaster who serves as Dagmyer's faithful attendant. She often provides a voice of conscience but it usually ignored.
- Bodyguard Crush: On Dagmyer.
- Foil: To Chiaia — another basically good, highly skilled Sacred Mechamaster in love with Dagmyer; the main difference between them may ultimately have been who they served.
- Love Martyr: She gets more and more disgusted at the whole hoopla as the series progressed, but stays out of her love to Dagmyer.
- My Master, Right or Wrong
- Subordinate Excuse
The strongest Sacred Mechalord created by the Ancient Civilization and the being responsible for its downfall.
