Characters: The Wonderful 101
A character sheet for the heroes and villains of The Wonderful 101


    open/close all folders 

CENTINEL

After 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 alien invasion. The CENTINELS utilize powerful technology and powerful combat agents to keep the planet safe.

The Wonderful 100

The main force of the CENTINELS, the Wonderful 100 (pronounced "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, 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.
  • Drunk with Power: 1,500 years into the future humanity becomes the corrupt military superpower known as The Greater Galactic Coalition, with entire worlds being destroyed and conquered by The 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 (more like a 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.
  • 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

    Wonder Red 

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: School teacher
Voice Actor: Charlie Schlatter (English), Ryōhei 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 machine speed and accuracy. He is the member of the team most proficient with the Unite Hand morph.

Tropes

  • Accidental Misnaming: Prince Vorkken continually calls him "Blunder Red".
  • Badass: The Video Games Awesome! crew consider this game a kid-friendly God of War. That said, his awesome moments are why.
    • Badass Bookworm: On his tactical exams, he got a 100 on the written part & a 98 on the field exam.
    • Badass Teacher: He's an elementary school teacher in his civilian identity.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 move 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 Is Heroic
  • 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.
    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..."
    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.

    Wonder Blue 

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.

Tropes

  • Badass Beard: ...Which doesn't match his normal hair for some reason.
  • Badass Longcoat
  • Bishōnen: Emphasized, and Played for Laughs, in his henshin.
  • 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.
  • Compensatingfor Something: Vijourne 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.
    • Fragile Speedster: Longer-ranged and faster than the Unite Hand, but weaker, making it best-suited to clearing swarms of tiny enemies like Dough-Goos.
    • Unobtainium: Blue's sword is made out of "Valiantium" (combining the words "Valiant" and "Adamantium").
  • Hot-Blooded
  • 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.
  • I Take Offense to That Last One:
    Wonder Pink: Seriously, you pig-headed, arrogant, selfish, narcissistic, rampaging, sweaty oaf!
    Wonder Blue: Who are you calling sweaty?!
  • The Lancer: To Red, though he's not very happy about it.
  • 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
  • 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. A lot.

Tropes

  • 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 conversation event he's in.
  • French Jerk: Though his jerkiness probably can be chalked up to his age more than his nationality.
  • 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. It, in fact, uses heroes as ammunition.
    • Friendly Sniper: Right there in his title.
    • 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.
  • Improbable Age: A member of the elite fighting force, and he's still in middle school.
  • Kidanova: Towards Wonder Pink.
  • Troll: Loves to purposefully infuriate Wonder-Blue.
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair

    Wonder Pink 

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)

Another younger member of the Wonderful 100. Wonder Pink is a high school student who is the master of the Unite Whip power, which can tear away armor and throw enemies.

Wonder Pink seems to value appearances above the actual mission, which has a tendency to interfere with the mission. Despite that, her actual abilities have led the team to countless victories.

Tropes

  • Berserk Button: Anything Wonder Green says, honestly, especially when it happens to be him fawning over her, as tends to happen often.
  • Camera Abuse: What she does if you fail her first QTE. See for yourself.
  • The Chick
  • Demon Head: When she gets really angry, her eyes turn red 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.
  • The Fashionista: Very particular about her looks and being trendy.
  • Improbable Age: A high school student on the frontlines of a war.
  • The Heart: Has a big sister/motherly role at times.
    • What the Hell, Hero?: Calls out Blue for taking on Vjounne solo, as it put the entire team at risk.
  • Male Gaze: Her introduction has close-ups on her rear and chest.
  • Pink Means Feminine
  • Sensual Slav: 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.
    • Eventually, to Vorkken.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Not the only female Wonderful 100 member, but she's the only female of the main 7.
  • Tsundere: Both the Queen of Rage and The Heart depending on the situation.
  • Unstoppable Rage: It's right there in her title.
  • 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 some material known as Belmont Alloy.
  • You Gotta Have Pink Hair

    Wonder Yellow 

The Hammering Russkie: Wonder Yellow

"Oh... so embarassed."

Assignment: Siberia, Russia
Real Name: Ivan Istochnikov
Occupation: Soldier
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.

Tropes

  • Adorkable
  • The Big Guy
  • Catch Phrase: Subverted. Blue asks him to say one when he wrecks a GEATHJERK ship, but he doesn't have one in mind, and stammers until the explosion happens without any cool catch phrase to go with it.
  • 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.
  • Gentle Giant
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Wonder White 

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.

Tropes

    Wonder Black 

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. He says little, but can do much.

Tropes

  • Black and Nerdy: Despite being stationed in India, his cornrows and breakdancing suggest he's more codified as black. All of his promotional material shows him preoccupied with his 3DS.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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 QTE 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, allowing for puzzle solving. He apparently built the time-slow mechanism himself, according to his Wonderful File.

  • The Cheerleader: Wonder Cheerleader.

  • Creator Cameo: Wonder Director, who is actually Hideki Kamiya.
  • Drunken Master: Wonder Kungfu, and probably Wonder Beer as well.

  • Mr. Fixit: Wonder Fixit, whose real name is even Felix, a Shout-Out to Wreck-It Ralph.

  • 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.
  • Badass Mustache
  • Commanding Coolness
  • 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.
  • Nice Hat
  • Retired Badass: 20 years ago, he fought on the front lines as a Wonderful One. In fact, he was the original Wonder Red, even. 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.

Alice MacGregor/Wonder-Scarf

Voice Actor: Laura Bailey (English), Tomo Nakamura (Japanese)

Operator of the Virgin Victory; the Wonderful 100's spaceship.

P-Star

A flying robot buddy that gives information to the Wonderful 100 in the field.

James Shirogane/Wonder-Gramps

Voice Actor: Fred Tatasciore (English), Kenichi Ogata (Japanese)

Research professor for the CENTINELS.

Professor Margarita/Mother Platinum/Platinum Robo

A 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.

Enemies

GEATHJERK

A 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:

  • Alien Invasion
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Many of the GEATHJERK forces are this.
    • Humongous Mecha: Part of the GEATHJERK forces consists of giant robots. Even their already huge leaders pilot even larger robots.
    • Kaiju: Another part of the GEATHJERK forces consists of gigantic Space Beasts.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Their ultimate goal.
  • Sociopathic Hero: Despite their 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.

    GEATHJERK officers 

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.
  • Badass Boast: "This time, the mighty Laambo will wipe their simpering smiles from the face of the planet!"
  • Blood Knight
  • 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.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Bisected by his own blade, courtesy of Wonder Red.
  • 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.

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.

  • Gadgeteer Genius
  • 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)

  • Berserk Button: Don't call her a cougar. It riled her enough to resort to a bleeped swear word.
  • Dark Action Girl
  • Dark Chick
  • 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.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Even when compared to The Wonderful 100's small size, she's really tall.
  • The Vamp
  • Villainous Breakdown: She becomes audibly enraged when the Virgin Victory snatches the Goddess statue away from right in front of her.

Walltha, Officer Third Class

Laambo's brother. Even more brutal and dangerous, he pilots a specially customized version of the Gah-Goojin mech.

Heyourgah, Officer Second Class

GEATHJERK'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.

  • 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)

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Shout-Out: Resembles the Flatwoods Monster
  • The Dragon

Supreme Overlord Jergingha

Voice Actor: Steve Blum (English), Kiyoyuki Yanada (Japanese)

  • Brain in a Jar: His first form, anyway.
  • Big Bad
  • Domino Mask: Dons a gigantic Wonder Mask to become Wonder Jergingha in order to battle the Wonderful 100.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Calls Earth a beautiful world, saying he wanted to avoid the planet's destruction if possible, but his hand had been forced into using the Chi-Q Marble Buster which can only end in the planets annihilation.
  • Evil Knockoff: His third form, the Planet Destruction Form, bears a resemblance to Wonder Red himself.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: But of course, just see his voice actor.
  • Expy: His first form resembles Mother Brain. His second form resembles Tiki Tong. 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.
  • 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 ancestors of the those who became The Greater Galactic Coalition, to do it. Luka calls him out on it.
  • Mirror Boss: His second form wears a giant Wonder Mask, and he uses his own version of the Unite Morphs.
  • 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.

    GEATHJERK mooks 

Dough-Goo


  • Body Horror: A Dough-Goo's suit is filled with something resembling an amniotic fluid. A soldier put into a Dough-Goo exoskeleton is melted into the fluid. 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/Heel-Face Brainwashing: A dying Dough-Goo can be turned into a temporary member of the Wonderful 100 by surrounding them with a Wonder Circle.
  • Stealth Pun: It's name sounds like dogu, a type of doll in Japan.

Chew Dough-Goo


Diedough-Goo / Gediedough-Goo


  • Spikes Of Doom: The Gediedough-Goo model is covered in spiked armor that requires the use of Unite Whip to strip away.
  • Turns Red: When the exoskeleton has been mostly stripped away, a Diedough-Goo will often launch into a berserker-rage combo attack.

GAH-GOOJIN


  • 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-GOOJIN mechs en masse; one per hero.
  • Humongous Mecha
  • 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.
  • Motion Capture Mecha: The GAH-GOOJIN is piloted by a single GEATHJERK soldier in this manner. In Operation 009, the Wonderful 100 use the robots' autopilot function to control them in the same way.

    Guyzoch Space Pirates 

A galaxy-roaming band of space pirates. They have a similar power to Unite Morph, known as "Unify Morph".
  • 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.

Vorkken Ohgee

"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.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: "Chewgi? Remember that proposal I proposed we propose?"
  • 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). 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.
  • The Evil Prince
  • 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.
  • 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 the bioweapon implanted in him.
  • Hold Your Hippogriffs: Played for laughs in one scene, when he's asked why he would kill Heyourgh, 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."
  • Last of His Kind
  • Number of the Beast: The majority of his stats such as his Danger Quotient is filled with consecutive 6's.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: He has villainous red eyes. They turn blue after the Wonderful 100 rid him of the bioweapon implanted in him.
  • The Rival: To Wonder-Red.
  • Shipper on Deck: Of Wonder Red and Immorta at the end.
  • Space Pirate
  • 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.
  • 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.

Chewgi

Voice Actor: Fred Tatasciore (English), Kiyoyuki Yanada (Japanese)

A stalwart soldier of Prince Vorkken’s Guyzoch Space Pirates. As commanding first officer, Chewgi is always beside Vorkken as his right hand. He is the most powerful member of the pirates in terms of brute force, but is of a quiet nature and rarely speaks. Chewgi firmly believes that even the battlefield is a place for proper manners, respecting the power of opponents and always fighting fairly. Chewgi is the master of a unique Unify Morph attack; the Unify Naginata.

V-Star

A 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.
  • 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.

  • 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.

    "How can they save the world if they can't even save one person on it? We're better off without 'em!"

    Others 

Immorta Ohgee

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.

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. He even evacuated his crew and son beforehand.
    • He also rushed and tossed Wonder Red (Emeritus) his Wonder Pendant when he was briefly seperated from it, despite getting hit fatally.
