CENTINELAfter an alien invasion 40 years prior to the events of the game, the United Nations created, in secret, a planetary defense force to protect the Earth from further incursion. The CENTINELS utilize powerful technology and powerful combat agents to keep the planet safe.
The Wonderful 100The main force of the CENTINELS, the Wonderful 100 (read as "one-double-oh") are a team of 100 special combat agents recruited from 100 cities across the globe. After going through intense training and being certified as physically and mentally able, an agent is given a Wonder Pendant and designated as a Wonderful One, able to don a powerful CENTINEL Suit and make use of pseudo-digital particle manipulation in order to properly fight against alien invaders. Each member of the team hides their heroism, with their identities considered highly classified.Their faces are forever masked. Their tombs are forever unknown. They are the 100 most wonderful defenders of our world. They are... the Wonderful 100.
tropes common to all Wonderful Ones
- Badass Army: Sentai taken to this level.
- By the Power of Grayskull!: The Wonderful Ones transform into their CENTINEL Suits with the command, "Wonder-eyes, <code name>!"
- Cast of Snowflakes: Every Wonderful One, including the ones not speaking in cutscenes, each come from a different city, have a different hero outfit, use a different signature weapon, a different style-appearance for their "titles," and have a different stat block.
- Clark Kenting: One function of the CENTINEL Suit, according to an in-game Wonder File, is to emit a vaguely-defined electronic signal that inhibits facial recognition in bystanders, and scrambles photographs, in order to protect the identities of Wonderful Ones, despite them only wearing fancy suits and domino masks.
- Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Unlimited Form, an emergency operations mode in which each Wonderful One's CENTINEL Suit has the energy inhibitors on the Shirogane Drive released, greatly improving Unite Energy capacity. Use must be approved, as extended use of Unlimited Form can cause severe damage, or even overheat the drive, causing it to explode with teratons of force.
- Domino Mask: A feature in every Wonderful One's costume, including temporarily recruited civilians. The civilian version consists only of a (smaller than usual) "Tiny Wonder-Mask."
- Drunk with Power: 1,500 years into a Bad Future humanity becomes the corrupt military superpower known as The Greater Galactic Coalition, with entire worlds being destroyed and conquered by the future Wonderful 100.
- Grievous Harm with a Body: Unite Morphs are formed from the heroes combining their bodies together, electronically, to create massive constructs.
- Meaningful Rename: Despite the name of the game, the group are referred to as the Wonderful 100 in-series. The 101 is generally taken to include the player. ("I knew we forgot someone... you!") They however change their name to the Wonderful 101 after Luka joins their ranks.
- Power Armor: The CENTINEL suit a Wonderful One wears amplifies their muscles and physical defenses, transforming ordinary people into superhuman soldiers.
- Scarf of Asskicking: Whichever Wonderful One is currently the active leader of the group will sport a red scarf/trailing sash on their suit.
- Secret Identity: Each Wonderful One maintains a civilian identity. The Wonderful 100 is considered a secret service, and the identities of Wonderful Ones are considered highly classified information. Though there are some exceptions, like Wonder-Santa and Wonder-Death.
- Theme Naming: Each Wonderful One uses a name starting with "Wonder". Wonder-Red, Wonder-Blue, Wonder-Ribbon, Wonder-Beer, Wonder-Wonderland, etc.
- Transformation Is a Free Action: Justified in that, despite the lengthy sequence shown to the player, the actual transformation takes place in far less than a single second.
- Transformation Trinket: The Wonder Pendant a Wonderful One wears can be used to don a CENTINEL suit within 3 billionths of a second.
Tropes common to the Wonderful Color Heroes
- Color-Coded Characters: In true Sentai fashion. Their colors are their superhero identities much like the Power Rangers, for the exception Wonder-Black, (who fulfills both black and purple) and Wonder-Goggles (who fulfills the otherwise absent orange).
- Debut Queue: After Red, Blue (both Prologue), and Green (001-B), the color members are all introduced one operation apart from eachother. Gameplay-wise this is presumably to help the player get eased into the mechanics of each new morph and when to use that in what situation.
- Multinational Team: Each is stationed in a different country with a stereotype to match.
- Wonder-Red: stationed in Blossom City USA, and is a neutral Every Man as the main character.
- Wonder-Blue: Los Angeles, has more traditional Eagle Land flair.
- Wonder-Green: A foodie stationed in Paris, France
- Wonder-Pink: A vampy Valley Girl from Transylvania.
- Wonder-Yellow: A strong man from Russia.
- Wonder-White: A ninja stationed in Japan, because All Asians Know Martial Arts.
- Wonder-Black: His cornrows and breakdancing make him seem like a Jive Turkey, as a quiet techie he's either Black and Nerdy or a Bollywood Nerd since he's stationed in India, potentially making Black Siddi, an ethnically African group who reside in India.
- The Team:
- The Hero: Wonder Red
- The Lancer: Wonder Blue
- Fat Comic Relief: Wonder Green
- The Chick: Wonder Pink
- The Big Guy: Wonder Yellow
- The Smart Guy: Wonder Black
- The Stoic: Wonder White
- Tagalong Kid: Luka
- The Sixth Ranger: Immorta
- Eleventh Hour Ranger: Chewgi and the Guyzoch forces briefly in Operation 007, then again near the end of 009 along with Vorkken himself.
The Crimson Fist: Wonder-Red
"I'm Wonder-Red! And you've got only one choice, invader: Lay down your arms, or lay down your life to the Wonderful 100!"
Assignment: Blossom City
Real name: Will Wedgewood
Civilian occupation: Elementary school teacher
Voice Actor: Charlie Schlatter (English), Ryohei Kimura (Japanese)Will Wedgewood, also known as Wonder-Red, is the newest member of the Wonderful 100. Despite having joined the team only a month ago, Wonder-Red has been placed into the role of the leader, due to the GEATHJERK attacking his assigned city. Wonder-Red is serious and focused almost to a fault, and has a lot of respect (and trivia knowledge) for every Wonderful One he comes across.Wonder-Red's weapon of choice is the pair of Vulcan Knuckles on his arms, which amplify his punches with machinelike speed and accuracy. He is the member of the team most proficient with the Unite Hand morph.
- Accidental Misnaming: Prince Vorkken continually calls him "Blunder-Red".
- Alliterative Name: His civilian name.
- Badass: Despite the fact that he's a Rookie Red Ranger, he defeats several powerful GEATHJERK officers, takes down a feared space pirate, gained the respect of his more-experienced colleagues, and eventually took down the leader of GEATHJERK once and for all. Red himself would say it's all thanks to his team, of course.
- Catch Phrase: "Team, Unite up!" as well as "Diplomacy has failed!" And of course, the many introductions starting with "If it isn't..."
- Clark Kent Outfit: Will Wedgewood appears to be anything but a hero. He panics, he stutters, and he's got really thick Nerd Glasses. However, as soon as the children are out of sight, The Glasses Come Off, and Mr. Wedgewood is suddenly acting far more heroic and confident, even before donning his CENTINEL suit.
- Disappeared Dad: A flashback at the start of the game shows that a young Will Wedgewood's father was killed during the GEATHJERK invasion 20 years ago.
- The Hero: The most straight-laced hero in the bunch. His utter dedication to acting like a straight-up hero confuses people on occasion.
- The Leader: Brought in to lead the Wonder 100 to victory. Leveled type primarily, but seems to overlap all four a little.
- Rookie Red Ranger/Ensign Newbie: Only been on the force for a month prior to the game but...
- Standardized Leader: Tropes Are Not Bad: he's charming, funny and has easily the most involved and interesting backstory among the main characters, making him an outstanding example of this trope done well.
- Jack-of-All-Trades: Got near perfect marks in both field and written portions of CENTINEL training, so he's pretty well rounded. Unite Hand fits this role among the Unite Morphs as well.
- The Chains of Commanding: Has to mature into a leader and bring the volatile eccentric ragtag group together.
- Legacy Character: He is actually the holder of the title Wonder Red after Nelson retired.
- Luminescent Blush: Gains one of these in the ending while talking to Immorta. The others (except Black) don't miss the chance to tease him about it.
- Mr. Exposition: Has a habit of giving rather enthusiastic introductions to each of the main Wonderful Ones (and some villains), several of them multiple times. Blue lampshades this. Watch for yourself."If it isn't the heir to the throne of the roaming Rhullo, leader of the Space Pirate band known across the universe as the Guyzoch... Prince Vorkken!" - Wonder-Red, many a time throughout the game
- Photographic Memory: Can perfectly recall the titles of every Wonderful One, remembers exactly where Vorkken's story left off, and can recall Immorta's rank and title down to the galactic code.
- Power Fist: His Vulcan Knuckles and Unite Hand power.
- Jack-of-All-Stats: The Hand is well-balanced in terms of range, power, and speed.
- Mundane Utility: In addition to beating robots into scrap, the Unite Hand can also be used to turn giant gears and pull boxes.
- Playing with Fire: The Unite Hand can block flames, and deals more damage and throws bouncing fireballs with every punch after catching fire.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Color inverted, the blue to Blue's red.
- Ship Tease: With Immorta.
- Stutter Stop: in his Wonder-Red persona, but it comes back in few moments when he was flustered.
- The Straight Man: The most serious and straight laced member of the crew. That being said, he has a few quirks of his own: his attempts to come up with attack names are rather... awkward, to say the least. Not to mention his insistence on long-winded introductions.Wonder-Red: "Final Ultimate Legendary Earth Power Super Max Justice Future Miracle Dream Beautiful Galaxy Big Bang Little Bang..."Wonder-Blue: "...AAAAAAARGH!"Wonder-Red: "Sunrise Starlight Infinite Fabulous..." *actually pauses for breath*Wonder-Blue: "Red?"Wonder-Red: "Totally Final Wonderful Arrow..."Wonder-Blue (Grabs Red and starts shaking him): "RED?!"Wonder-Red (Pushes Blue off): "FIRE!"
- You Killed My Father: Averted. Even during their confronation with Laambo, he chooses to let him escape to defuse a weapon. In fact, Nelson states Red blamed himself for not being able to save his father rather than want vengeance. The fact that this even happened isn't even acknowledged until five chapters after Laambo is killed, and Red himself never directly acknowledges it. He does land the final blow on Laambo, however.
The Supersonic Blade: Wonder-Blue
"Dude! Feel the sting of my Valiantium blade!
Assignment: Los Angeles
Real Name: Elliot Hooker
Civilian occupation: LAPD detective
Voice Actor: Roger Craig Smith (English), Daisuke Egawa (Japanese)A master of the sword, Wonder Blue is one of the Wonderful 100's most powerful combat agents. A bit of a show-off, albeit not very good at showing off. He takes issue with Red being appointed the leader of the current operation, despite his novice status.
- Badass Beard: Though perhaps more accurately characterized as a goatee.
- Badass Longcoat: Wears what is basically a blue version of Dante's coat.
- Bishōnen: Emphasized, and Played for Laughs, in his transformation sequence.
- Berserk Button: Don't ever talk smack about his brother.
- Big Brother Worship: Blue admits this himself. From childhood, his parents were gone and his brother raised him alone. It's telling that the guy who dresses up with a mask and sword and fights aliens on a regular basis says that, from his perspective, his normal-cop brother is a real superhero.
- Brick Joke: His transformation sequence at the beginning involves tossing a rose into the air and failing to catch it. The rose comes up again out of nowhere near the end of the final battle, and he finally caught it.
- Butt Monkey: Frequently the target of Green and Pink's verbal jabs.
- Captain Obvious: "I've been waitin' all my life for the chance to make those alien scum feel the sting of my Valiantium Blade. 'Course, they won't feel it for long. They'll be dead. From the blade."
- Catch Phrase: "Feel the sting of my Valiantium Blade!"
- Character Development: He goes from being a somewhat loose cannon who is out for vengeance on the people who killed his brother to being more willing to work with the team and actually caring about their goals.
- Compensating for Something: Vijounne asks, word for word, if his sword is this.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: His Valiantium Blade and Unite Sword power.
- Absurdly Sharp Blade: His Valiantium Blade is made out of a metal said to get sharper with every swing, and the Unite Sword can cleave robots in two in a single strike.
- Attack Reflector: The broad edge of the blade can reflect lasers back to their source.
- BFS: Unite Sword is, by definition, as big as up to 100 people.
- Shoe Phone: While it's hard to notice ingame, his sword actually has a rotary phone dial on it for whatever reason. It's easiest to see in his Smash 4 trophy. It's probably a play on popular "dial-a-combo" criticism against hack'n'slash games.
- Unobtainium: Blue's sword is made out of "Valiantium" (combining the words "Valiant" and "Adamantium").
- Ineffectual Loner: Doesn't like working in groups, especially playing Number Two to a Rookie Red Ranger. In cutscenes when Red gives orders and the team gives a group "Roger!" with a gesture, Blue doesn't. He gets over these tendencies eventually, joining the group gesture once he does.
- Jerkass: He's loud and abrasive to everyone on the team, especially Green and Red. Though he grows out of it.
- Jerkass Woobie: The reveal of his backstory, and why he became a Wonderful One in the first place, go a long way toward explaining his initial attitude.
- I Take Offense to That Last One: Twice.Wonder-Pink: Stay out of this, you D-List wannabe, first year fencing school drop-out!Wonder-Blue: D-List?!
Wonder-Pink: Seriously, you pig-headed, arrogant, selfish, narcissistic, rampaging, sweaty oaf!Wonder-Blue: Who are you calling sweaty?!
- Sometime later...
- The Lancer: To Red, though he's not very happy about it. He eventually develops from the combative type of Lancer to the more easygoing kind.
- Pride: His ultimate Fatal Flaw. He doesn't take kindly to being led by Wonder-Red, a comparatively new member of the Wonderful Ones, and in the first battle against Vijounne (His brother's murderer), he flies at her head-on, but gets batted aside effortlessly, allowing her to get away. This sequence repeats a couple of levels later, but this time, he instead pins Vijounne's mech down with his sword, allowing Immorta to deal the killing blow, representing his overcoming of this flaw.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Color inverted, the red to Red's blue.
- Skunk Stripe: A blue one.
- Something About a Rose: Tosses a rose into the air when he begins his transformation sequence... and fails to catch it.
- Surfer Dude: Justified, as he is Californian.
- Tritagonist: He's Wonder-Red's Lancer, he's playable almost as long as Red himself, and he goes though nearly as much Character Development as Wonder-Red and Luka.
- Would Hit a Girl: Doesn't hesitate at all to charge after Vijounne repeatedly, takes Wonder-Pink on a fight (which eventually devolves into the entire team in a Big Ball of Violence), and threatens Immorta more than once. Justified for the former as she killed, or at least was heavily involved in the death of, his brother.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Silver with a streak of blue, and a blue beard.
- You Killed My Father: He had an older brother who was led into a trap by Vijounne.
Le Sniper Superieur: Wonder-Green
"Hands behind your back! Teeth clenched!"
Assignment: Bordeaux, France
Real Name: Jean-Sébastien Reneault
Civilian occupation: Middle-school student
Voice Actor: Kari Wahlgren (English), Orine Fukushima (Japanese)An extremely young member of the Wonderful 100, Wonder-Green was recruited for his amazing skill with a gun, despite his youth. Wonder-Green is the wielder of the Unite Gun power, which uses heroes as ammunition.Wonder-Green comes from a rather strict family, and takes advantage of the anonymity of his hero identity to indulge in everything his parents normally forbid him. In addition to being able to insult his foes, he indulges in junk food, and can be found munching on something new every operation.
- Abnormal Ammo: The Unite Gun fires out other heroes. During his introduction, there's even a slow-motion closeup of Blue being incased in one of his bullets.
- Acrofatic: Despite being quite heavyset, Wonder-Green is as quick as any other member of the Wonderful 100. Gameplay and Story Segregation, however, as he's noted to be pretty clumsy when not handling a gun.
- Big Eater: He has some different food item in every operation he's in, and can even be seen snacking in the middle of cutscenes. Fitting with his backstory, it is never French food, but often the junkiest of junk food, like hamburgers or fish and chips.
- Catch Phrase: "Sacré vert!"
- French Jerk: Though his jerkiness probably can be chalked up to his age more than his nationality. His file mentions he tends to let loose from the strict upbringing his parents enforce on him.
- Rich Bastard: His age and his upbringing, though he never actually brings up his fortune.
- The Gunslinger: Wonder-Green's weapon of choice is a proton rifle, which is used for the basis of the Unite Gun.
- BFG: By definition, the Unite Gun is many times the size of a hero. In fact, it uses heroes as ammunition.
- Friendly Sniper: Right there in his title, though friendly might be a stretch at times.
- I Call It "Vera": Green's proton rifle, which he names "Christine Daaé" and affectionately calls "Christie.""Do not listen to him, Christie! My belle. He knows not what he says!"
- Long-Range Fighter: Not as strong as the other Unites, but has decent speed and can attack at any distance.
- Weapons That Suck: Unite Gun can vacuum up enemies that are stunned, and various blunt objects, and launch them elsewhere.
- I Always Wanted to Say That:"Red! We will be fine! Go on without us! Hehe...I always wanted to say that!"
- Improbable Age: A member of an elite fighting force, and he's still in middle school. Impressively, he's still far from the youngest Wonderful One.
- Kidanova: Towards an unamused Wonder-Pink.
- Pop-Cultural Osmosis Failure: With a little bit of Genre Blind. The idea that a machine came back through time to terminate the saviors of the planet is utterly laughable in his eyes.
- Troll: Loves to purposefully infuriate Wonder-Blue.
- You Gotta Have Green Hair
The Queen of Rage: Wonder-Pink
"Do not tell me that is all you've got! Where is the bada-boom?!"
Assignment: Transylvania, Romania
Real Name: Mariana Kretzulesco
Occupation: High school student, Olympic gymnast
Voice Actor: Tara Strong (English), Yuki Uchiyama (Japanese)A teenage member of the Wonderful 100. Wonder Pink is a high school student and talented gymnast who is the master of the Unite Whip power, which can tear away spiked armor and throw enemies.Wonder Pink seems to value appearances above the actual mission, which has a tendency to distract her focus from the matter at hand. Despite that, her actual abilities have led the team to countless victories.
- Berserk Button:
- Anything Wonder-Green says, honestly, especially when it happens to be him fawning over her, as tends to happen often.
- She's not fond of White's long-winded philosophizing, either.
- Camera Abuse: What she does if you fail her first QTE. See for yourself.
- Dangerously Short Skirt: Parodied. Her skirt barely covers the underwear section of her leotard when she's standing still, and fails to in almost every other situation. Several of the minor female members of the team suffer from this as well.
- Demon Head: When she gets really angry, her eyes turn red (which show up as pink under the mask) and she bares a mouth of fangs.
- Expy: Of Bayonetta. Her hairstyle and even the poses she does when she transforms are reminiscent of the latter. Most likely intentional, considering both this game and Bayonetta's are made by the same team. However, her character is very different from Bayonetta.
- The Fashionista: Very particular about her looks and being trendy.
- Improbable Age: A high school student on the frontlines of a war. Again, not even close to being the youngest.
- The Heart: Takes a big sister/motherly role at times, particularly toward Luka. It's suggested her own missing brother engendered these habits.
- Male Gaze: Her introduction has close-ups on her rear and chest.
- Motor Mouth: One of her QTE fails has her call a certain friend of hers before falling to her doom. You have to fail the quicktime event ten times to the full version.
- Ms. Fanservice: Out of the major playable characters.
- Pink Means Feminine: Oh yes. Her dress, her hair, her weapon, and she's very feminine.
- Sensual Slavs: Purposefully invokes this with her hometown (Transylvania), whip, resemblance to Bayonetta, and Romanian accent.
- Smitten Teenage Girl: Not with anyone in particular, but she's a bit boy crazy. And then she sees Vorkken...
- The Smurfette Principle: Not the only female Wonderful 100 member, but she's the only female of the main seven.
- Tsundere: Both the Queen of Rage and The Heart depending on the situation.
- Unstoppable Rage: It's right there in her title.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Calls out Blue for taking on Vijounne solo, as it put the entire team at risk.
- What the Hell, Player?: Fail her first QTE, and she apparantly gets angry at the player for not being able to pull it off on time, taking her anger out on the camera.
- Whip It Good: Her Beautiful Whip, which forms the basis of the Unite Whip power.
- Building Swing: The Unite Whip can grapple swinging points to traverse obstacles.
- Lightning Bruiser: The Whip is very strong, fast, and has good range, but it's balanced by it having very limited ability to attack multiple enemies, making it best suited to fights with a few, large enemies.
- Spikes of Doom: The Whip is covered in spikes, which makes it perfect for dealing with enemies covered in spiked armor.
- Unobtainium Her Beautiful Whip is woven together out of a material known as Belmont Alloy.
- You Gotta Have Pink Hair
The Hammering Russkie: Wonder-Yellow
"Oh... so embarassed."
Assignment: Siberia, Russia
Real Name: Ivan Istochnikov
Voice Actor: JB Blanc (English), Hiroyuki Honda (Japanese)A powerful Wonderful One from Russia. Wonder Yellow is the master of the heavy-hitting Unite Hammer.Wonder Yellow is extremely shy, and has a tendency to blush and fumble his words.
- Beware the Nice Ones: While he's quiet and unassuming most of the time, he's one of the strongest Wonderful Ones. Take a look at the boss fight with Wanna to see just what he's capable of.
- The Big Guy: Though Green is bigger (despite being just a child), Yellow's Mighty Glacier weapon puts him firmly in this position.
- Catch Phrase: After delivering the final blow to Wanna, Blue encourages him to let loose with a snappy one. Yellow proceeds to fumble, insisting his country does not have catchphrases, and Wanna dies before he ever gets one out.
- Drop the Hammer: His Peta-Peta Hammer, which forms the basis for the Unite Hammer power.
- Four-Star Badass: A member of the Russian Army, exact ranking unknown.
- Good Parents: Makes time with his kids when he's not on the job for CENTINEL or Mother Russia.
- Husky Russkie: Right there in his title, but he's a bit different in that he's almost cripplingly shy.
- Luminescent Blush: He can blush through his metal mask, somehow.
- Nice Guy: Very polite and friendly to the other Wonderful Ones. While the others tend to snipe at and insult each other, the worst Yellow does is some gentle, good-natured teasing.
- Shout-Out: His Peta-Peta Hammer is a likely reference to Amy Rose's Piko-Piko Hammer. The difference being that "Peta" is a unit prefix denoting multiplication by one quadrillion, whereas "Piko" (or "Pico") refers to one trillionth.
- Shrinking Violet: He's very shy; the only one less outspoken than him is Black.
The Claws of Calamity: Wonder-White
"The way of the ninja is the way of achievement."
Assignment: Shinshu, Japan
Real Name: Momoe Byakkoin
Occupation: Wonderful-Ryu Leader
Voice Actor: Yuri Lowenthal (English), Yoichi Nishijima (Japanese)A Wonderful One from Japan, and master of ninjutsu. Wonder-White wields a pair of deadly claws, which are the basis of the chilling Unite Claw power.Wonder White is a serious man, prone to proverbs.
- Brought to You by the Letter "S": His forehead bears the kanji "百", meaning "hundred". When his outfit is damaged, the top of it breaks off, giving us "白", meaning "white".
- Koan: Tends to say these a lot, whether they apply or not. Wonder-Green mentions that he has 100 of these sayings. He goes through a few of them during his introduction scene:Wonder-White: "Ichi: Do unto others. Ni: Home is where the heart is. San: Reach for your dreams. Shi: Drink in moderation. Go: Honesty is the best policy. Roku: The good old days are over. Shichi: Perhaps I have met my match. Hachi: Yes, I have met my match. Kyu: Let us have a match—"
Wonder-Pink: "Combat! Get to the combat!"
- Meaningful Name/Steven Ulysses Perhero: His civilian last name includes Byakko the white tiger.
- Highly Visible Ninja: Justified, since he's a superhero.
- Wolverine Claws: One on each hand, known as the Dantenmaru and Zanjimaru, and they can be used to create Unite Claw.
- Ancestral Weapon: The Dantenmaru and Zanjimaru have been in his family for generations. His profile notes they're the only weapons used by a Wonderful One not developed by CENTINELS.
- An Ice Person: Unite Claw appears to have ice-based abilities. It's the only morph that has an element to it by default.
- Throwing Your Claws Always Works: His version of the Wonderful Stinger has him throw his pair of claws Round Trip style.
- Wall Crawl: The Unite Claw can be used to climb walls.
- The Stoic: One of the least comedic characters in the main cast, White doesn't crack jokes or get in verbal sparring with the others. He does, however, share the others' exhausted reactions to Pink fangirling over Vorkken.
The 8-Bit Enchanter: Wonder-Black
Assignment: New Delhi, India
Real Name: Krishna Ramanujan
Occupation: College Student
Voice Actor: Kris Zimmerman (English), Orine Fukushima (Japanese)A Wonderful One assigned to India, with a great amount of technological prowess. He is the user of the mysterious Unite Bomb ability.Wonder-Black is very introverted, always seen with headphones and a game system. Almost never speaking, he seems to prefer actions to words.
- Black and Nerdy: Despite being stationed in India and having an Indian name, his cornrows and breakdancing suggest he's more codified as black.
- Brown Eyes: His eyes are always obscured normally (by his hat or his mask), but pressing ZR when he talks during a cutscene (which makes the Wonderfuls' eyes visible through their masks) shows he has these.
- Child Prodigy: He's 11 years old (younger than Green, who's 14), yet he's in college.
- Console Cameo: He brought his 3DS along on the mission, and is almost always playing it when something else is going on.
- Covert Pervert: When dealing with a GEATHJERK armada, Black makes a bet with Green that whoever takes down the most ships gets a pair of Pink's underwear. Green agrees and Black high-fives him (one of the few times when he isn't using Unite Bomb that he takes his hands off his 3DS).
- Gadgeteer Genius: According to his Wonderful File, he built the Time Bomb, the weapon that serves as the basis for the Unite Bomb, by himself. He also hotwires and pilots a GEATHJERK mech during part of Operation 005's boss battle.
- Headphones Equal Isolation: Though it doesn't stop him from being a team player.
- Kid Hero: More so than Green, even: He's only 11 compared to Green's 14.
- Purple Is the New Black: The Wonder Liner when drawing Unite Bomb, the quicktime text splashes that call for it, Wonder-Black's icon by the health bar, his "Leader" ring when he's in control, and the energy lines on the Unite Bomb itself are a deep purple color instead of black.
- The Quiet One: Even when he does speak, it is scarcely above a whisper.
- The Smart Guy: See Gadgeteer Genius above.
- Throw Down the Bomblet: Unite Bomb is a giant bomb thrown at the enemy.
- Time Stands Still: The area of Unite Bomb's explosion also happens to slow time to a crawl, which brings high-speed enemies to a halt and allows for puzzle-solving. He apparently built the time-slow mechanism himself, according to his Wonderful File.
- The Unintelligible: It's pretty hard to understand exactly what he's saying when he whispers, which is often, not helped by how his word balloons only write it out as "..." The only times he speaks clearly are when he's calling a Unite Bomb prompt, on his first transformation where he says "Wonder-Eyes Black.", and when he figures out how to control the enemy robot the team recently hijacked.
Other Wonderful Ones
The color-named heroes may be the main focus characters, but there are one hundred unique heroes among the Wonderful 100, each with their own names, assignments, and weapons of choice.

- Afro Asskicker: Wonder-Mop, who has a mop-themed afro.

- Annoying Arrows: Wonder-Samurai retains the many arrows that killed him all over his body, except when he's knocked out.
- Art Attacker: Wonder-Painter and Wonder-Art, though neither of them have unique abilities to express this.
- Badass Adorable: Young Will Wedgewood AKA Wonder-Future's hobby?, weapons. Any of the child Wonderful Ones count, really.

- Cane Fu: Wonder-Magician uses his cane, The Fantastick, like a sword.
- Canon Immigrant: Word of God states that Wonder-Cheerleader is Silvia from Viewtiful Joe.
- Captain Ethnic: Many of the Wonderful Ones are based on either things their country of origin is known for (Wonder-Clockwork from Germany, Wonder-Matador from Spain, Wonder-Kabuki from Japan, Wonder-Cellphone from Finland) or things their stationed city is known for (Wonder-Automobile from Detroit, Wonder-Movie from Hollywood, Wonder-Money from Wall Street, Wonder-Beer from Munich).
- The Cheerleader: Wonder-Cheerleader.

- Combat Medic: Wonder-Medicine.
- Creator Cameo: Wonder-Director, who is actually Hideki Kamiya.
- Drunken Master: Wonder-Kung Fu, and probably Wonder-Beer as well. Unfortunately for Wonder-Kung Fu, while his Drunken Kung Pao Chicken Fu fighting style requires him to booze up, he's a lightweight who gets weaker as he drinks.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Wonder-Samurai (an undead samurai), Wonder-Zombie, Wonder-Ghost, Wonder-Tombstone, Wonder-Witch, Wonder-Voodoo, and Wonder-Death.
- Don't Fear the Reaper: While his profile raises the question of how CENTINELS even managed to recruit the Grim Reaper, Wonder-Death is said to be a focused and dedicated member of the team.
- Experienced Protagonist: Wonder-Cheerleader, when under the player's control (considering the previous time she was a Henshin Hero).
- Expy: Wonder-Cheerleader is one to Sylvia of Viewtiful Joe, right down to the pom pom guns, light blue dress, and name. Official word takes it a step further and confirms they're the same person.
- Everything's Better with Monkeys: Wonder-Astronaut is actually a monkey in a space suit.
- Fanservice Extra: Parodied. Several of the female members share Wonder-Pink's Dangerously Short Skirt issue, including some gathered before Pink herself, and as a result the team has the occasional member that leaves an overdose of leg exposed.
- Father Neptune: Wonder-Sailor.
- Friend to All Living Things: Wonder-Jungle, to the point where his whip is actually just a snake that he's very good friends with.
- Fortune Teller: Wonder-Oracle.
- Gender Bender: Wonder-Makeup can change anyone's appearance, even to the point of looking like the opposite gender.
- Goo Goo Godlike: Wonder-Babe and Wonder-Ghost. Wonder-Babe's stats are all low except for Wisdom, which is at maximum.
- Green Thumb: Wonder-Flower.
- The Grim Reaper: Wonder-Death.
- Hello, Nurse!: Wonder-Nurse, and how.
- Hot Librarian: Wonder-Witch's civilian occupation. It seems to be an in-joke about people on forums originally referring to Bayonetta as a librarian.
- Hot Witch:
- Again, Wonder-Witch.
- Also Bayonetta herself, a secret unlockable character. Jeanne is one, too.
- Japanese Delinquents: Wonder-Socho, though he's described as a really nice dude whose 'gang' is all about treating people with respect.
- Joke Character:
- Wonder-Future, whose only weapon is a very small Unite Hand.
- Wonder-Director. Despite having a maxed-out stat block in all six classes, he dies in one hit regardless of how much health he appears to have. And he has a bored-sounding voice when attacking to emphasize how un-serious the character is.
- Kid Hero: Wonder-Beetle, Wonder-Rex, Wonder-Gamer, Wonder-Toy, Wonder-Prince, Wonder-Pixie, Wonder-Ghost, Wonder-Voodoo, and Wonder-Future, Wonder Red's younger self.
- Knight in Shining Armor: Wonder-Armor.
- Masked Luchador: Wonder-Fighter.
- Moveset Clone: The Other Wonderful Ones can be set to be played instead of the color heroes via the Leader Select menu or when the color heroes are temporarily knocked out in battle. The game will even save these settings until entering and leaving a Kahkoo-regah, likely since Kahkoo-regahs usually reduce the team to just the members deemed necessary for the challenge. Regardless, though, they still play the same way as the color heroes, such as (for example) Wonder-Ribbon playing the same as Wonder-Pink. They still all have individual leveling to get through in order to upgrade their respective weapons, though.
- Mr. Fixit: Wonder-Fixit, whose real name is even Felix, a Shout-Out to Wreck-It Ralph.
- Musical Assassin: Wonder-Music, whose personal weapon is a trumpet modified into a firearm.

- No Sense of Direction: This is said to be Wonder-Automobile's dark secret.
- Nun Too Holy: Wonder-Sister.
- One-Hit-Point Wonder: Wonder-Director.
- Our Zombies Are Different: Wonder-Samurai's a Revenant Zombie while Wonder-Zombie's a Plague Zombie (in appearance, at least; his profile suggests he retained his human personality, including a good sense of humor about being undead).
- Pirate: Wonder-Pirate.
- Playboy Bunny: Wonder-Rabbit, who is Wonder-Magician's long-suffering assistant.
- Polar Opposite Twins: Wonder-Pierrot the Sad Clown, and Wonder-Clown the Happy Clown.
- Real Men Wear Pink: All male whip users, considering the whip defaults to pink.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Wonder-Prince.
- Santa Claus: Wonder-Santa. And he's not a Mall Santa or something like that; his real name and occupation are both listed as "Santa Claus."
- Science Hero: Wonder-Science.
- Thirteen Is Unlucky: Wonder-Death's "name" is listed as 0013.
- Token Evil Teammate: Averted with all the Dark Is Not Evil examples listed above, but also on a more mundane level with Wonder-Prisoner, whose profile explains that he was merely falsely accused of a crime.
- Undead Child: Wonder-Ghost who is actually 3 year old Jasper Brown Jr.
Other members of CENTINEL
The Wonderful 100 may be CENTINEL's stongest fighting force, but there are plenty of other agents of CENTINEL out to support the Wonderful 100 in their quest to repel alien invasion.
Laurence Nelson/Pompadour Paragon: Wonder-Red (Emeritus)/Wonder-Captain
Voice Actor: Gideon Emery (English), Yasuhiro Mamiya (Japanese)Commander of CENTINEL, pilot of the Virgin Victory, and dispatcher of the Wonderful 100.
- Improbable Hairstyle: As the former Wonder-Red, his hair was shaped into a drill pompadour.
- Me's a Crowd: If you have both Wonder-Captain and Wonder-Red (Emeritus) unlocked for normal gameplay, they'll both be on your team at once despite being the same person (albeit from two separate decades). They also won't vanish from your team during cutscenes when Nelson talks to you from the Virgin Victory.
- Quintessential British Gentleman: His official listed occupation 20 years ago was "British Gentleman."
- Retired Badass: 20 years ago, he fought on the front lines as a Wonderful One. In fact, he was the original Wonder-Red. Today, he's retired from front line battle, but acts as the Wonderful 100's commander instead.
- He's Back: Current-age Nelson can be brought back into the game as the unlockable Wonder-Captain, still swinging his Unite Drill.
- Secret Character: As both Wonder-Red (Emeritus) AND Wonder-Captain, the latter of which is Nelson at his current age.
- Spit Take: Failing certain Quicktime Events will result in one from watching the Wonderful Ones failing.
- Spot of Tea: Said to always be with a cup, whatever the situation.
- This Is a Drill: His Unite Morph specialty as the previous Wonder-Red, and Weapon of Choice. In fact, even his hair and chest hair are drill-like! He retains this weapon and Morph as Wonder-Captain.
- Playing with Fire: As Wonder-Captain, his Unite Drill is fire-element.
Voice Actor: Laura Bailey (English), Tomo Nakamura (Japanese)Operator of the Virgin Victory; the Wonderful 100's spaceship.
- Ace Pilot

- Secret Character: As Wonder Scarf.
- Spot of Tea: She has a hobby of collecting different blends and flavors from around the world.

P-StarA flying robot buddy that gives information to the Wonderful 100 in the field.
- Badass Adorable: Gets his chance to shine in the battle against the nanoweapon Vaaiki, where his onboard weapon systems finally prove useful.
- Exposition Fairy: Often gives useless advice, which is Lampshaded quite a bit.
- Intelligible Unintelligible: P-Star's "voice" clips is R2-D2 style electronic noises, though none of the characters have trouble interpreting. Neither does the audience, thanks to the speech bubbles.
- Legacy Character: In the invasion twenty years ago, Nelson was accompanied by a more primitive version of P-Star. It's unclear whether this is the same AI in a different shell or an entirely different character.
- My Sensors Indicate You Want to Tap That: Joins the others in teasing Red about Immorta in this fashion during the ending.P-Star: *P-ping!* Red's heart rate is accelerating rapidly! *Bzzt!*
- Badass Grandpa: As Wonder-Gramps.
- Expressive Hair: Stays in a question mark style, but can also become an exclamation point for instance.
- Meaningful Name: "Shirogane" can be translated as "Platinum", giving Platinum Games a self Shout-Out to themselves.
- Secret Character: As Wonder-Gramps.
- Throw Down the Bomblet: He uses Unite Bomb as Wonder-Gramps.
- Time Stands Still: Literally. Wonder-Gramps's Unite Bomb will actually STOP enemies and objects in time rather than just slow them down.
Professor Margarita/Mother Platinum/Platinum RoboA former CENTINEL scientist who worked on the Hyper Plasma Shield protecting Earth. She was killed during an accident in the shield's production, prompting CENTINEL to code-name it after her in her honor. It is later revealed that she didn't actually die, instead she directly uploaded her consciousness into CENTINEL's neural network. She is also Luka's mother.
- Badass: as Platinum Robo
- Expy: Of Yui Ikari/Eva-01. A much more positive version than the character she's expy of, thankfully.
- Humongous Mecha: As Platinum Robo, a giant robot made out of buildings.
- Readings Are Off the Scale: Compare with Jergingha, whose character stats are at the upper limit with values like "999" or "9999". Platinum-Robo's stats are past that limit, having such values as "1001" or "10100".
- The Voiceless: Platinum Robo speaks, but only Luka can hear her.
GEATHJERKA mysterious alien race who has invaded the Earth twice in the past. They take advantage of a spacial event that happens every 20 years to mount invasions of increasing size. They have been repelled twice, but have now invaded Earth with the largest force they've ever sent, with the Wonderful 100 as their only major obstacle. They actually come from 1500 years in the future, where their civilization has been all but destroyed by an empire originating from Earth and seek to change the course of history in their favor.
Common tropes among GEATHJERK forces:
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Many of the GEATHJERK forces are this.
- The Empire: The invading force is known as the GEATHJERK Federation Supreme Armada, leading to the thought that the army is under command of a vast empire/federation spanning various planets.
- Evil Is Bigger: A number of the GEATHJERK forces are huge compared to the Wonderful 100. Among its top leaders, a number of them are Large and in Charge.
- Expy: As Green lampshades, by complete Pop-Cultural Osmosis Failure, of Skynet, but being heroic(initially) instead of villainous.
- Fun with Acronyms: Guild of Evil Aliens Terrorising Humans with Jiggawatt bombs, Energy beams, Ray guns, and Killer lasers
- Considering what GEATHJERK's real goal is and their homeworld located in the "GEATHJERK cluster", this is likely a lie to hide their true motives.
- He Who Fights Monsters: Their efforts to stop the Greater Galactic Coalition from being founded has resulted in them becoming just as tyrannical and monstrous as the empire they sought to overthrow.
- Jerkass: Aside from being called Jerks as per their name, a majority of them are literal jerks, most notably their higher-ups.
- La Résistance: They were originally formed as this to an empire originating from Earth.
- Large Hams: All of the officers. Laambo, Walltha, and Wanna basically scream all of their lines, Vijounne greatly enjoys laughing and gloating, and even the subdued Gimme gets in on the deal as his boss battle continues. Jergingha's pretty hammy too, though more because of his passionate speeches against the Wonderful 101 than committing gleeful destruction like the rest.
- Macross Missile Massacre: The GEATHJERK use missiles. A lot.
- Motive Decay: Originally was a benevolent organization that accumulated a lot of NOT-benevolent members, ultimately to the point only their leader seems to remember its original purpose.
- Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Their ultimate goal.
- Sociopathic Hero: Despite their original good intentions, all of them are a little too gleeful at mass murdering all of humanity or with fighting.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: GEATHJERK's goal is to save the galaxy from the future threat of humanity and The Greater Galactic Coalition... though they do end up becoming a tyrannical empire of their own in the process.
- You Already Changed the Past: Their goal to travel back in time to wipe out humanity and their allied races before they formed The Greater Galactic Coalition could have possibly resulted in the formation of the GGC. They apparently have no inkling of this possibility.
Laambo, Officer Sixth Class
Voice Actor: Bob Joles (English), Yasuhiko Kawazu (Japanese)A huge, gorilla-like member of GEATHJERK's invading force, and ranked sixth in its hierarchy of officers. He has tamed the three-headed dragon Ohrowchee, which he rides into battle with.
- Abnormal Ammo: In the second GEATHJERK invasion, he toted a one-shot pistol that fired sword blades. Given that Laambo is the size of a house, said blades were as long as school buses. This is the weapon that killed Wonder-Red's father.
- An Arm and a Leg: Lost a pair of his eyes and one of his legs, and in the present he's seen with two eyepatches and a metal leg over those respective injuries. It's implied that he got them from his battle against Nelson back when Nelson was the previous Wonder-Red.
- Badass Boast: "This time, the mighty Laambo will wipe their simpering smiles from the face of the planet!"
- BFS: His Weapon of Choice. He calls it a "Dechno-Bo", and it can form a new blade when broken.
- Cyborg: Parts of his body are cybernetic due to injuries he recieved in battle against Laurence Nelson in the previous war 20 yars ago.
- Degraded Boss: In a sense, as the Ankho enemies that appear later in the game are essentially just reskinned Laambos. Their danger rating, a mere 85% to Laambo's 100%, even reflects this.
- Dragon Rider: Tamed the Diekuu Ohrowchee and rides it into battle.
- Eyepatch of Power: Wears red eyepatches over both his right eyes.
- Foreshadowing: He scoffs when Red introduces himself, saying there's no way the human before him can be Wonder-Red. This is a hint toward either the fact that the two share history, or more likely that Laambo still remembers his defeat at the hands of Nelson, the previous Red, and is unimpressed by his successor.
- Actually even more blatant at the end of his boss fight, after being directly contacted by Commander Nelson, Laambo outright calls Nelson by his previous title of Wonder-Red.
- Half the Man He Used to Be: Bisected by his own blade, courtesy of Wonder-Red. He manages to pull himself together, in a literal sense, long enough to get his last words out.
- Small Role, Big Impact: The first boss of the game, but his murder of Arthur Wedgewood in the previous war inspired young Will to become a hero, setting the future Wonder-Red on the path to taking GEATHJERK down once and for all.
- Starter Villain: As the first encountered GEATHJERK officer, he is taken a lot less seriously and has a lot more silly moments than the later officers.
- Take Me to Your Leader: "I have no time to waste on pathetic underlings! You will produce your leader!"
- This Cannot Be!: Calls shenanigans when getting defeated by Wonderful Ones.
- Worthy Opponent: It's hinted that he considered Commander Nelson/the old Wonder-Red to be a worthy foe, and thus upon meeting his successor, he is unimpressed. When he demands to see their leader, he's probably referring to Nelson.
Wanna, Officer Fifth Class
Voice Actor: Steve Blum (English), Shinya Hamazoe (Japanese)A tiny, fly-like member of GEATHJERK's forces, who flies around in a pitcher-shaped vehicle.
- The Evil Genius: Highly intelligent, leads his own military unit and is a prominent figure in weapons development.
- Heroic Sacrifice: He attempts one during the climax of his boss fight, attempting to plough his vehicle into the Strato Port Super Reactor in order to take it out for the Geathjerk Federation. It fails spectacularly.
- Mad Scientist: He lost his own home planet through sheer extensive weapon testing and his urge for experimentation still remained unsated. It was his primary motivation for joining GEATHJERK.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Subverted. He's multi-armed, but he doesn't like to get his hands dirty and isn't dangerous by himself, moreso the traps and robots he uses against his enemies.
Vijounne, Officer Fourth Class
Voice Actor: Paula Tiso (English), Marika Hayashi (Japanese)A tall, blue humanoid member of GEATHJERK's forces, who rides on a star-shaped flying platform. She specializes in underwater operations.
- Back for the Dead: Survives the initial operation she's fought in, just to get killed for real when she re-appears in Operation 006.
- Berserk Button: Don't call her a cougar. It riled her enough to resort to a bleeped swear word.
- Demon Head: Has a very frightening alien one during her argument with Wonder-Pink.
- Duel Boss: During the first fight against her, only Wonder-Blue is playable against her.
- Ms. Fanservice: If the outfit and dialogue isn't enough, the fact that she pole-dances for one of her attacks should clue you in.
- The Mole: Infiltrated earth's forces as the partner of Wonder Blue's brother.
- Shapeshifting: Most likely due to having disguised herself as a human that is way smaller than her alien form and looks nothing like it. She can also inflict this on Blue during their duel, temporarily turning him into a puppy.
- Statuesque Stunner: Even when compared to The Wonderful 100's small size, she's really tall.
- Vapor Wear: The design of her outfit makes it very evident that she isn't wearing a bra.
- Villainous Breakdown: She becomes audibly enraged when the Virgin Victory snatches the Goddess statue away from right in front of her.
- Villainesses Want Heroes: No one will blame you for interpreting her interactions with Red as flirting.
Walltha, Officer Third Class
Voice Actor: Bob Joles (English), Yasuhiko Kawazu (Japanese)Laambo's brother. Even more brutal and dangerous, he pilots a specially customized version of the Gah-Goojin mech.
- Aloof Big Brother: Well, twin brother. Doesn't even care that his own brother fell in battle with the Wonderful 100.
- BFS: Wields a Dechno-Bo just like his brother, though his piloting of the Wallgah-Goojin implies high proficiency with hand-to-hand combat as well.
- Blood Knight: Even more so than his brother.
- Cool Shades: Wears blue sunglasses. Which, given he has four eyes and they're on opposite sides of his head, either looks incredibly silly or incredibly badass.
- Good Old Fisticuffs: Albeit performed while piloting a giant robot.
- Not So Different: In his introduction, he insists that he's more focused on the larger GEATHJERK goal than his brother ever was, but his last tirade is almost exactly the same as Laambo's. Blue calls him on this just before Walltha bites it.
Heyourgah, Officer Second ClassGEATHJERK's second-ranked officer, a skilled assassin and wielder of ice powers. Killed by Vorkken before the heroes ever see him.
- An Ice Person: He is able to freeze an opponent in an instant.
- Bishōnen: Supposedly. We never see what he looks like, so there's no way to confirm it.
- Breaking the Fourth Wall: His GEATHJERK File references Vorkken killing him before we get to see him in the game twice.
- Collector of the Strange: He collects planets, by freezing them.
- The Ghost: Unseen, as mentioned below. Even his data file only shows his grave.
- Horned Humanoid: Based on his partially obscured silhouette in Immorta's flashback.
- The Unfought: Vorkken's already dealt with him off-screen by the time you reach the Super Reactor. Dug a grave for him, too.
- You Killed My Father: According to his file, he is the one who killed Vorkken's family.
Gimme, Officer First Class
Voice Actor: Bob Joles (English), Toshitsugu Takashina (Japanese)A being that closely resembles eyewitness accounts of the Flatwoods Monster. He pilots a ship called the Giga-Goonkhan, which can change into a large robot called the Giga-Goojin.
- Badass Bookworm: Though most of his screentime is spent overseeing the invasion, his intellect and physical prowess allows him to pilot the Giga-Goojin at its full potential.
- Faux Affably Evil: He acts laid-back and casual, and pretends to care about Luka's well-being, but is obviously only interested in what GEATHJERK can get to further their invasion.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Winds up being incinerated by the GEATHJERK's own microwave lasers.
- Knight of Cerebus: The tone gets far darker whenever he is present, especially when during his first appearance Luka undergoes a Face–Heel Turn by giving him the master control pendant for Margarita. There are still a couple humorous scenes with him, however.
- Shout-Out: Resembles the Flatwoods Monster.
- The Dragon: A given, due to the fact that he's the highest ranked officer.
- Unfortunate Name: Let's be honest, "Gimme" isn't a very intimidating name.
Supreme Overlord JerginghaHe is also the control reactor for their ultimate weapon, the floating fortress GEATH-Waksay.
- Anti-Villain: Despite GETHJERK being mainly comprised of homicidal maniacs, Jergingha actually seems to care about their overall goal of "stop the formation of the Greater Galactic Coalition" and bears no ill will towards Earth, only who the Wonderful 100 will allegedly become.
- Badass: To put things into perspective, it took the combined power of three ships, a giant robot, every Wonderful One, and even Earth itself to destroy him. Even then, it was a very close call.
- Even more tellingly, he's so determined that he manages to knock the team out of a seemingly finishing Unite Hand twice in quick succession, even halting the Theme Music Power-Up at the same time.
- Badass Arm-Fold: In his Planet Destruction Form.
- Brain in a Jar: His first form, anyway.
- Big Bad: as the Supreme Commander of GEATHJERK.
- Domino Mask: Dons a gigantic Wonder Mask to become Wonder Jergingha in order to battle the Wonderful 100.
- Even Evil Has Standards: When he pulls out his Chi-Q Marble Buster, he expresses regret at the thought of destroying such a beautiful planet, and claims he wishes he could have avoided it.
- Evil Knockoff: His third form, the Planet Destruction Form, bears resemblance to the Wonderful Ones even moreso than "Wonder-Jergingha". This is deliberate, as a form of irony and possibly psychological warfare.
- Evil Sounds Deep: But of course, just see his voice actor.
- Expy: His first form resembles Mother Brain. His second form resembles Tiki Tong, or going further back (and given Kamiya's love for the franchise) Andross. His third and final just screams Unicron.
- Fighting the heroes with their own technology, and taking a similar form to their own in the final battle has a slight Anti-Spiral ring to it.
- Genius Loci: He IS the GEATH-Wahksay, in its entirety. The brain you first encounter him as is just a small part of it.
- Giant Hands of Doom: In his second form.
- Hypocrite: Wants to bring justice to those responsible for destroying his homeworld, but is killing off innocent people, who probably aren't even the direct ancestors of those who became the Greater Galactic Coalition, to do it. Luka calls him out on it. Also, his own underlings are every bit as evil and psychotic as he makes the GGC out to be.
- Mirror Boss: His second form wears a giant Wonder Mask, and he uses his own version of the Unite Morphs.
- Rasputinian Death: His health meter gets empty four times before he's finally defeated. Half his head and his right forearm get knocked off his final form with no signs of him slowing down.
- Tactical Suicide Boss: He'd be unstoppable in Planet Destruction Form if he didn't keep sending Gah-Goojin mechs at you, which you could then hijack to form bigger Unite Morphs and smash through his barriers.
- Taking You with Me: He has no problems with sacrificing himself as long as he takes down The Wonderful 100 and Earth with him to prevent the Bad Future.
- That's No Moon!: The planet sized fortress you see? That's actually his body.
- Walking Spoiler: As the leader of GEATHJERK, he's a massive walking spoiler.
- Wave Motion Gun: His ultimate attack, the CHI-Q Marble Buster.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: "Now I finish my task, and end our nightmare FOREVER!"
- Body Horror: A Dough-Goo's suit is filled with "GEATH-Solution". A soldier put into a Dough-Goo exoskeleton is melted and merged seamlessly into the solution during a process known as the "Melt-In Cockpit". This increases reaction time and reduces damage by removing vital organs to hit. It's unknown if a melted soldier can be restored.
- The Goomba: The first, and easiest, enemy in the game. Often are summoned in swarms by other enemies.
- Heel–Face Turn: A dying Dough-Goo can be turned into a temporary member of the Wonderful 100 by surrounding them with a Wonder-Liner.
- Stealth Pun: It's name sounds like dogu, a type of doll in Japan.
- Body Horror: Same as a Dough-Goo, except a Chew Dough-Goo's suit has two soldiers operating inside of it.
- Grievous Harm with a Body: They can launch their Dough-Goo subordinates at high speeds.
- Mook Maker: They can summon Dough-Goos to fight with them.
- Power Fist: If you kill a Chew Dough-Goo with a certain attack, they'll drop a single-use version of their fists that can be thrown at other enemies.
- Heel–Face Turn: A dying Chew Dough-Goo can be recruited as a temporary member of the Wonderful 100.
- Frickin' Laser Beams: Raydowns have these. You can use Unite Sword to reflect the beam and damage the Raydown's armor.
- No Sell: Blocks all Unite Morphs until its armor is removed or it's flipped over.
- Spikes of Doom: Gehdowns have these. Unite Whip is required to remove them.
Diedough-Goo / Gediedough-Goo
- Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: in the description: "Diedough-Goo likes puppies, long walks on the beach and wanton destruction".
- Spikes of Doom: Like Gehdowns, Gediedough-Goos have to be attacked with Unite Whip to remove their spiked armor and be rendered vulnerable.
- Turns Red: When the exoskeleton has been mostly stripped away, a Diedough-Goo will often launch into a berserker-rage combo attack. Your Unite Morph will shatter if you hit a berserk Diedough-Goo.
- Perfect Poison: Their poison is lethal to almost anything that isn't wearing a CENTINEL-Suit.
- Whip It Good: Uses their tail as a whip.
- Flying Saucer: A saucer piloted by a Dough-Goo.
- Goddamned Bats: You-Houghs are sometimes grouped with tougher adversaries and serve primarily as a distraction.
- Combining Mecha: The Gah-Goojin from Operations 001 and 002 that loses its right arm uses a Cough-Foon as a replacement arm.
- Degraded Boss: The first Gah-Goojin mech that appears is fled from several times, fought twice before it goes down, and is the boss of Operation 002. The second one they find is still a dangerous foe, but is only the first half of the boss stage. That, and just about every Gah-Goojin mech after the first is stolen by the Wonderful 100 for their use. The ones encountered in the final sections of the game can even be defeated in one hit!.
- Grand Theft Prototype In Operation 005, a Gah-Goojin mech is stolen by the team, and later handed off to Immorta. In the final operation, the team steals Gah-Goojins en masse; one per hero.
- Humongous Mecha: Each of them is larger than several houses and are as powerful and threatening as their size would imply.
- Lowered Monster Difficulty: The first time you encounter one in Operation 002, it puts up a decent fight and later turns out to be the boss of the whole operation and is relatively tough. Another one is found later attacking in almost all of Operation 005. In C, another one is fought in a similar manner to the first one, but it's somewhat easier to beat. Justified, given that it's not the actual boss of the operation. It later turns downright silly in Operation 009 when they are knocked out and stolen en masse by the heroes in one blow each! Although given that Platinum Robo has a hand in it, the Wonderful 100 can fight them on more even footing.
- Macross Missile Massacre: Like most GEATHJERK giant mechas, Gah-Goojins can fire missiles from their head in massive quantities.
- Motion Capture Mecha: The Gah-Goojin is piloted by a single GEATHJERK soldier (usually a Chew Dough-Goo) in this manner. In Operation 009, the Wonderful 100 use the robots' autopilot function to control them in the same way.
- Spikes of Doom: After removing a Gah-Goojin's head armor, it reveals another layer of spiked armor.
- Taking You with Me: The Gah-Goojin from Operation 002 tries to catch the Virgin Victory in its self-destruct sequence. It gets tickled off by Wonder-Red.
- Combat Tentacles: The first two "phases" of the fight involve destroying these.
- Degraded Boss: Goes from being the boss of Operation 004 to an enemy at the end of 006-B's shooting segment to an assist of the boss of Operation 008.
- Frickin' Laser Beams: Both on its tentacles and on its head.
- Gatling Good: Has a gatling gun tentacle. Its bullets can be blocked with Unite Hammer.
- Giant Robot Squid: Piloted by Vijounne.
- Palette Swap: Comes in red and blue varieties, encountered in Operations 004 and 006 respectively.
- Shock and Awe: One of Ohdarko's tentacles is a lightning gun. Its lightning can be absorbed by Unite Sword.
- Whip It Good: One tentacle is a giant spiked whip.
- Everything's Better with Spinning: You can't attack a Tumeeky/Koh-Tumeeky while it's spinning.
- King Mook: Tumeekys are this to Koh-Tumeekys.
- Mirror Boss: Like the Guyzoch, both variations copy the primary seven Unite Morphs used by the Wonderful Ones.
- Playing with Fire: Tumeekys and Koh-Tumeekys can create fire pillars, usually following up with a spin attack.
- Pulling Themselves Together: If a Tumeeky/Koh-Tumeeky gets seperated (by blocking one of its blunt attacks with Unite Guts or by damaging it enough while it's stunned from a team attack), it pulls its individual blocks together if its health is high enough.
- Airborne Mook: A Dough-Goo piloting a machine shaped like Wanna's hover-craft.
- EMP: Of a sort. Kuzzlers can project a temporary bubble that disables the use of Unite Morphs.
VaaikiA nano-bioweapon developed by Wanna. Much larger versions of it were made as by-products.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: By the time the fight is near its end, the Nano-Accel completely wears off of the team, returning them to a normal size while Vaaiki is still tiny. Wonder-Red repeatedly stomps on it seconds later.
- Degraded Boss: Near the end of the game, the team fights against by-products of it in the form of enormous versions the size of battleships. Because they are in mechas at the time, fighting said by-products just plays out like the final part of the Operation 007 boss fight. Another type of by-product can be found in certain late-game Kahkoo-regahs, again conveniently scaled to the team's current size.
- Frickin' Laser Beams: Fires beams out of their tails. Like most lasers in the game, the Unite Sword can deflect them.
- This Is a Drill: Able to fire several drill-like bullets. It even uses this to blow up the nano Wonder-Mart.
Guyzoch Space Pirates
A galaxy-roaming band of space pirates. They have a similar power to Unite Morph, known as "Unify Morph".
- Anti-Villain: It seems that none of them are actually evil, as Vorkken was brainwashed and the rest of the crew were forced into service. The second time they show up to help the team, Chewgi implies the former pirates unanimously decided to help the Wonderful 100 a second time before returning to their home planets.
- Meaningful Name: Guyzoch is a corruption of kaizoku, meaning "pirate".
- Mirror Boss: They use much of the same techniques as you can, though uses some Unify Morphs that you cannot, as well, such as ones based on enemies.
- Psycho Rangers: Their whole purpose is to be the evil version of the Wonderful 100.
- Tron Lines: Everything associated with the Guyzoch has them, usually in the form of their insignia. Immorta's story implies they symbolize Rhullo's destruction.
- "I will allow you to refer to me as Prince Vorkken."
Voice Actor: Quinton Flynn (English), Sho Sudo (Japanese)The heir to the throne of the roaming comet Rhullo, and leader of the Guyzoch space pirates.
- Accidental Misnaming: He always refers to Wonder-Red as "Blunder-Red" and Earth as "Dearth". He finally gets Wonder Red's name right in the ending, but never manages to get Earth's name right.
- Battle Boomerang: He uses one called the Victor Boomerang in battle, which serves as the basis for the Unify Boomerang power.
- Bishōnen: He's a very pretty alien.
- Blood Knight: In their last fight right before activating his Teio-Form.
- Brick Joke: In his first encounter, he says that his backstory will take about ten to fifteen minutes to explain. In the second encounter, this comes up again, only his estimate bumps up to about thirty.
- Captain Obvious: When fighting him, he'll occasionally shout "Dying is a terrible thing!"
- Department of Redundancy Department: "Chewgi? Remember that proposal I proposed we propose?" and that he'll begin his story at the beginning.
- Evil Counterpart: To Wonder-Red. He is the leader of the Guyzoch, leads his crew in the use of Unify Morph, and even has an answer to Unlimited Form, with the exact opposite activation gesture (a thumbs-up becoming a thumbs-down). He can use any morph, but in the cutscenes he often uses his counterpart to Unite Hand (on his introduction and in a Pummel Duel in his final battle). However, he is a ruler rather than a team leader. "Tyrant" would actually be a more accurate term. As such, his entire crew deserts him once he loses his grip on them.
- Extra Eyes: He has an additional eye on his forehead.
- Fallen Hero: Was once a benevolent and beloved ruler on Rhullo.
- Going Commando: Vorkken's model after the Clothing Damage that signifies the darker parts of the story shows he doesn't wear undergarments. Bizarrely, he and the rest of the Guyzoch actually have full-body pajamaesque bodysuits for their "knocked out" models.
- Grievous Harm with a Body: He has his own variant of Unite Morph; Unify Morph. Functionally, it seems to be quite similar to Unite Morph.
- Heel–Face Turn: Decides to aid the Wonderful 100 after they rid him of Vaaiki, a nano-bioweapon GEATHJERK implanted in him.
- Hidden Heart of Gold: Under all that pomp and ego is an exceptionally kind and gentle man, but due to the brainwashing of GEATHJERK, this side of him is buried deep within him. Seeing the dedication of the Wonderful 100 to protect Earth, this sense of justice reawakens in him.
- Hold Your Hippogriffs: Played for laughs in one scene, when he's asked why he would kill Heyourgah, despite him being an ally."Allies? Does the nyurkfzat ally with the dizzbong?"
- Kneel Before Zod: "They will bow before me. Like all the rest.''
- More Than Mind Control: Immorta states that GEATHJERK brainwashed him, but it's clear that Vorkken is nobody's puppet.
- My Rules Are Not Your Rules: For the sake of making him a challenging foe, Vorkken has some skills the player can only wish they had.
- His Unite Guts bounces everything back, even edged weapons like Unite Sword and Claw.
- While using a morph, Vorkken is invincible.
- He doesn't require a Wonder-Liner, and in later fights he's capable of pulling out 100-man morphs instantaneously.
- And of course, he can morph his crew into various GEATHJERK enemies or their weapons.
- Number of the Beast: The majority of his stats such as his Danger Quotient is filled with consecutive 6's.
- Purple Is Powerful: His Unify Morphs are purple with yellow edges.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: He has villainous red eyes. They turn blue after the Wonderful 100 rid him of Vaaiki.
- Really 700 Years Old: When delivering his backstory, he implies that he's over 200 years old. However, his profile lists his age as being in Rhulloian years, suggesting that he isn't nearly as old as initially suggested.
- The Rival: To Wonder-Red.
- Shipper on Deck: Of Wonder-Red and Immorta at the end.
- Super Mode: He has a counterpart to the Wonderful 100's Unlimited Form called Teio-Form, which he uses in the pirates' last duel with the Wonderful Ones.
- We Can Rule Together: After his first encounter with the Wonderful 101, he offers Wonder Red the chance to join his crew, and claims that the only reason he left the Wonders get away was because he wanted to give Red the chance to reconsider after having rejected the offer. He also apparently makes a habit of having the stronger people he runs into on the various planets he visits join him.
- You Killed My Father: His original intent was to gather enough power to take down GEATHJERK for destroying Rhullo, but GEATHJERK got to him first and brainwashed him. He does manage to take vengeance on the GEATHJERK 2nd class officer Heyourgah, who is stated to be the one who led the destruction of Rhullo.
- :Anti-Villain: Isn't evil at all, he's just been press-ganged into the Guyzoch after Vorkken defeated him. The second he's free, he and the rest of the crew join the Wonderful 100 inside Vorkken - not to save their former leader, but to repay their debt to the ones who freed them. Then shows up again to help out in the final assault on Geath-Wahksay.
- Badass Baritone
- Big Damn Heroes: Bails the Wonderful 100 out twice, jumping in naginata-first to deflect some projectiles.
- Blade on a Stick: Chewgi's dual-bladed naginata, which can also be used as the basis for the Unify Naginata power.
- But Now I Must Go: He and the rest of the Guyzoch Space Pirates leave in order to reclaim their homeworlds after helping the Wonderful 100 save Vorkken.
- Back for the Finale: However, he comes back just in time to help the 100 storm the GEATH-Whaksay.
- Heel–Face Turn: He and the rest of the Guyzoch Space Pirates decide to help the Wonderful 100 after Vorkken is defeated.
- Let's Fight Like Gentlemen: Chewgi believes that the battlefield is a place for proper manners and respect.
- Plot Irrelevant Villain: In the same vein as Vorkken above, Chewgi could've been replaced or outright deleted and the story wouldn't have changed much.
- Proud Warrior Race Guy: From the planet "Boosheedo".
- Samurai Ponytail: Manifested in the form of an antenna-like protrusion from his helmet, but what little we see of his unarmored self included an actual one.
- 5* Space Pirate
- Super Mode: Like Vorkken, Chewgi has his own version of Unlimited Form, referred to as Ganjo-Form.
V-StarA robot that is always by Vorkken's side. V-star provides Vorkken with information, and stores in his memory the data for the constructs created by the Unify Morph power.
Luka Alan Smithee Hero In Progress: Wonder-Goggles
Voice Actor: Debi Derryberry (English), Tomomi Yamakawa (Japanese)A student at Blossom Elementary school. Luka is a problem child; a bully, among other things. Luka's parents were both killed in a previous alien attack. Since then, Luka has harbored a deep hatred for alien invaders, but also hates the Wonderful 100, who were unable to save his parents. He is the son of Professor Margarita, who he believes died in an accident that CENTINELS allowed to happen; as an act of revenge, he betrays the Wonderful Ones and temporarily allies himself with GEATHJERK, only to repent after learning the truth about his mother's death.
- Badass Adorable: as Wonder-Goggles.
- Be Careful What You Wish For: He wanted to pay back the Wonderful 100 for allegedly abandoning his mother to die. When he gets the chance, he finds out that Evil Is Not a Toy, and is horrified by the full scope of what he set in motion.
- Deuteragonist: His character arc is extremely similar to Wonder-Red's backstory, his mom is the posthumous Big Good, and he's the protagonist of the epilogue.
- Evil Is Not a Toy: He quickly discovers that the GEATHJERK aren't going to just stop at wiping out the Wonderful 100.
- Face Heel Revolving Door: He goes from hating the Wonderful 100 to begrudingly needing their help several times throughout the game. He eventually settles on "face" after learning the truth of his mother's Heroic Sacrifice.
- Goggles Do Nothing: Except as Wonder-Goggles, where they shoot lasers.
- Kid Hero: As Wonder-Goggles.
- Mythology Gag: Has the same first name, and even a similar backstory and motivations as another Luka. If he were a little older, he may have even had the same actor.
- My God, What Have I Done?: His reaction upon seeing the full extent of Geathjerk's attack after he lowers Earth's orbital shield.
- Parental Abandonment: Both of his parents were killed. Althrough one of them turns out to be not quite dead.
- Powered by a Forsaken Child: A rare and non-destructive heroic example; when Platinum Robo emerges, Luka's teleported into its core matrix to draw out its full potential. He's even able to enter and leave as he wishes.
- Shadow Archetype: Like Wonder-Red, he lost a parent to the war between Centinel and GEATHJERK. Unlike Wonder-Red, who decided to protect Earth, he wanted vengeance upon Earth.
- Ungrateful Bastard: The team save him during the first boss fight, and all he spouts about is how much he hates them. It's because he believes that CENTINELS left his mother to die. He eventually gets over it after learning the truth.
- Why Couldn't You Save Them?: Despises the Wonderful 100, as they couldn't save his parents."How can they save the world if they can't even save one person on it? We're better off without 'em!"
Voice Actor: Stephanie Lemelin (English), Miho Shinada (Japanese)She appears in front of the Wonderful One-Double-Oh from time to time, only to taunt them when she does. She doesn’t seem to belong to the GEATHJERK army, but she can hardly be called an ally either. Despite possessing high combat capabilities, she never engages in combat of her own accord and she tends to disappear as soon as she arrives. Her objectives are as shrouded in mystery as her identity. She is actually a member of the Galactic Federation Police, and Vorkken's sister. However, she is the last surviving member, as well as being one of the few survivors of the destruction of Rhullo along with Vorkken. She currently chases both the GEATHJERK and the Guyzoch. She can use Unite Bowgun, which has the ability to charm enemies.
- Automatic Crossbow: Her Weapon of Choice, the Sakuran Bowgun. When she joins with the Wonderful 100, it becomes the basis of the Unite Bowgun.
- Dark Action Girl: Subverted. She looks like a Dark Action Girl but she isn't as evil as looks like.
- Extra Eyes: She has an additional eye on her forehead that can be seen when her visor is partially destroyed.
- Green-Skinned Space Babe: Pink-skinned, but she looks human aside from the pink skin and three large blue eyes.
- Guest Star Party Member: She temporarily joins the group in certain stages, which lets them use her Bowgun. You can permanantly unlock her after getting certain bottlecaps.
- Meaningful Name: Besides her being a presumably long-lived alien, it's also a play on imouto, "little sister", hinting at her relation to Vorkken.
- Ship Tease: With Wonder Red.
- Spy Catsuit: With a giant Heart Symbol as a breast plate, a lot like Rouge The Bat.
- Stab the Scorpion: Her introduction, where she shoots down three enemies hiding on the ceiling before they can attack a solo Wonder-Red.
- Voice Actor: Charlie Schlatter (English)
- Badass: And this guy wasn't even a member of the Wonderful 100. He ended up sacrificing himself so he could steer his jet, carrying a huge missile that couldn't be fired due to GEATHJERK interference, into the Geathjerk mothership, ending the 2nd war with the aliens. And that's after taking a direct blow from Laambo's massive sword. He even evacuated his crew and son beforehand.
- He also rushed and tossed Wonder Red (Emeritus) his Wonder=Pendant when he was briefly separated from it, despite getting hit fatally.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Was the blue to Nelson's red back in the day.
- Secret Character: As Wonder-Daddy. He even has a halo!
- Taking the Bullet: Jumped in the line of fire to get Nelson his Wonder-Pendant back when Laambo was about to finish him.
- Wolverine Claws: The Daddy's Claw, his weapon as Wonder-Daddy, and as such, he uses Unite Claw.
- Playing with Fire: His Unite Claw is a fire-element version.
The Greater Galactic CoalitionThe mysterious force who is acknowledged by GEATHJERK during their invasion of Earth. They are The Wonderful 100 of the future, having conquered the homeworlds of GEATHJERK's members and making them travel back in time to prevent their existence by wiping out humanity.
- Bad Future: Of the Wonderful 100.
- Dramatic Irony: The Greater Galactic Coalition and their destruction of the GEATHJERK Cluster might have happened because Jergingha attacked Earth. He doesn't even have an inkling of an idea of that possiblity.
- More optimistically, the invasion spurned Luka into joining the W100 and turning it into the W101, which prevented their emergence, see Ret Gone.
- Future Me Scares Me: The W100 are shocked beyond all belief at the possibility of giving way to a group of power-hungry conquerors.
- Greater Scope Villain: They attacked the GEATHJERK cluster, which caused the GEATHJERK federation to be formed for the sole purpose of rewriting them out of existence.
- Ret Gone: Jergingha calling them the 100 Demons implies they still have only 100 members 1500 years in the future, so Luka becoming a 101st in the present (Along with the other members gaining knowledge of the possibility of becoming Drunk with Power) may have resulted in a new timeline where they don't exist.
- The Unfought: Since they existed in the future.
- The Unseen: They never appear in the game proper. Jergingha's story shows a brief, shortened image of what appears to be armored soldiers wearing Wonder-Masks, though those could just be mechs since Jergingha had one of his size.
- Walking Spoiler: It's impossible to talk about them without giving away who they are.
