Series/UltramanNexus character sheet


[[folder:Night Raiders]]

An elite defense team under TLT command, they are responsible for the elimination of Space Beasts.

!!Kazuki Komon
!!! Portrayed by: Takuji Kawakubo
-->''"The reality one sees...if it were all a deception..."''

The main character of the series. Komon is a kind-hearted, straightforward person who is always willing to help others. Throughout the series he bonds with the Dunamists and grows alongside them. [[spoiler: This culminates in him becoming the fifth and final Dunamist, host to the true form of Nexus: Ultraman Noa.]]
* NewMeat: Night Raiders' newest member. The start of the series highlights his unfamiliarity with the ways of the Night Raiders and TLT.
* NiceGuy: Easily the best example in the show. He's straightforward, always willing to help others, bears no ill will towards anyone and is also quite empathetic.
* SupportingProtagonist: Played straight, making Nexus the first show in the Franchise/UltraSeries to use this trope. The story is told mainly from Komon's point of view, even though he is not a Dunamist (in other words, he does not transform into the titular hero).
** [[spoiler:He loses his role as this when he eventually becomes the fifth Dunamist in the final episode.]]
* [[spoiler: TheLostLenore: His girlfriend, Riko. The fact that she was {{Dead All Along}} and was actually Dark Faust shook Komon considerably. Took him quite a while to get over that.]]
* TheWatson: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], as he is new to the Night Raiders and TLT.

* ActionGirl: As the deputy leader of a Space Beast destroying team, this is a given.
* BrokenBird: Her parents were killed and she was betrayed by her lover. Who can blame her for her cynical and harsh outlook on life?
* ThePowerOfHate: Her immense hatred of Space Beasts is what drives her to take her job as a Night Raider very seriously.

The captain of the Night Raiders. He is a good leader and takes action effectively in any situation. He cares for his teammates and is well trusted by them.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
