     The Go-ongers 

Sosuke Esumi/Go-on Red | Actor: Yasuhisa Furuhara

Renn Kosaka/Go-on Blue | Actor: Shinwa Kataoka

  • Team Mom: His teammates even call him "Mother".
  • Verbal Tic: Adds "-su" to the end of sentences - except when at home

Saki Royama/Go-on Yellow | Actor: Rina Aizawa

  • Idol Singer: GP 11 shows that this is a secret dream of hers. In GP 31, she forms an idol group (G3 Princesses) with Miu and Kegareshia in order to defeat a MOTW that functions on sound waves.
  • Image Song: "Smile Smile"
  • Improbable Weapon User: Racing Bullet
  • Ki Attacks: V V Dan, during the events of Go-onger vs. Gekiranger.
  • Meaningful Name: "Saki" means "blooming" in Japanese, which relates to her title, "Smile Blooming."
  • One Note Chef: She's good at making sweets and cakes, but not much else...

Hant Jo/Go-on Green | Actor: Masahiro Usui

  • Keet: Like Saki, he has a joyful mood.
  • Ki Attacks: Baru Baru Dan, during the events of Go-onger vs. Gekiranger.
  • New Job as the Plot Demands: Frequently seen taking various part-time jobs, with his commitment to being a Go-Onger affects his job security.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to Gunpei's Manly Man.
  • Ship Tease: It's occasionally hinted that Hant has a crush on Kegareshia (in GP 14 he falls for her while she is disguised as "Rena", and in other episodes he seems to find her attractive even in her usual form).
  • Signature Move: Axe Touring
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: In at least two episodes. Later, in GP 47 Gunpei wants Hant to dress as a girl and pose for fake wedding photos to deceive Gunpei's mother, despite the presence of two actual women on the team.

Gunpei Ishihara/Go-on Black | Actor: Kenji Ebisawa

  • Badass Longcoat: Subverted For Laughs. Donning a trenchcoat led him to be mistaken for a drug dealer.
  • Butt-Monkey: Eventually took the role from out of Hant's hands.
  • By-the-Book Cop
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Somewhere down the road, a few brain cells dropped dead. By Shinkenger vs. Go-onger, any sanity he might have had left was apparently on vacation.
  • Cool Gun: Cowl Laser
  • Dub Name Change: "Alex" in the Korean dub.
  • Jumped at the Call: Desperate to become a Go-onger to the point of stealing the Engine Casts. It's only when he agrees to hand them back that Bomper decides Gunpei has a strong sense of justice, and allows him and Hant to become Go-on Black and Green.
  • Ki Attacks: Ganga Ganga Dan, during the events of Go-onger vs. Gekiranger.
  • Real Men Hate Sugar: Subverted; after having a taste of a cake that Saki made (after Sosuke declared it to be delicious), he eagerly took a piece, saying, "I don't like sweets, but I'll have this."
    • In the finale, he tells Saki that he looks forward to the day when she opens her own cake shop. YMMV whether he has developed an appreciation for Saki's cakes and sweets, or if he is merely being a supportive friend.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Manly Man to Hant's Sensitive Guy.
  • Serious Business: When he starts interrogating the employees at Ren's inn to learn about his past with the petrified Banki shrine, you know a line is being crossed.
  • Terrible Artist: He is terrible at drawing. In GP 16, we see his drawing of a penguin, which looks like anything but.

Hiroto Suto/Go-on Gold | Actor: Hidenori Tokuyama

  • The Ace: One episode has a bunch of Hiroto's groupies saying he could master anything if he wasn't devoting his time to fighting Gaiark.
  • The Comically Serious: Even when fully joining the rest of the team, he still tries to distance himself from their sillier antics.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Incredibly Lame Pun aside, his attitude doesn't prevent him from aiding his sister and friends.
  • Knife Nut: Rocket Dagger
  • Meaningful Name: "Hiroto" uses the characters for "big wings", relating to his theme as a Go-on Wing.
  • Mistaken for Terrorist: In the 10 Years Grand Prix movie, the remaining Go-ongers believe he attempted to assassinate Noizumi in a suicide bombing and was killed. He was actually trying to publicly talk Noizumi out of raising the Isolation Barrier, only to be caught up in an explosion when BearRV crash-landed to earth, and ended up on Junk World; then couldn't get back, due to the barrier having been raised.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Sosuke's red.
  • The Rival: To Sosuke.
  • Signature Move: Burning Dagger
  • Sixth Ranger: Along with Miu.
  • The Stoic: but Not So Stoic if Miu is in danger and if ghost are present.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: He and Miu got a lot of screentime for just two people. Justified because the Wings function as a separate unit from the Go-ongers.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Ghosts are what he is scared of. This was foreshadowed in the Urameshimedes episode, and confirmed as canon down the line.
  • Team Dad: An incident with a monster from the Sound World has him being labeled as the "Father" of the team, much to his chargin.
  • I Work Alone: Initially. He later warms up to the rest of the team, but he and Miu live separately from the Go-ongers.

Miu Suto/Go-on Silver | Actor: Yumi Sugimoto

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: While Sosuke is brainwashed in the Straw Banki episode, he begins acting like a gangster/Yakuza and offers Miu a stolen ring, which makes her happy. Later, after he has returned to normal, she admits that she preferred him brainwashed.
  • Aloof Ally: At first like her brother, but she warms up to the Go-ongers much faster than Hiroto does.

     The Engines 

In General

The partners of the Go-Ongers, hailing from the Engine World. In order to survive on Earth they need to separate into Engine Casts, miniature versions of their true Engine forms, and Engine Souls, which are cartridge-shaped objects that store the soul of an Engine. When the Engine Casts are reunited with the Engine Souls, the Engines are brought back to full size for ten minutes, after which they risk rusting.

Earth Pollution Minister Yogostein | Voice actor: Kiyoyuki Yanada

Earth Pollution Vice-Minister Hiramechimedes | Voice actor: Kazuya Nakai

  • Accidental Misnaming: Ren is the only Go-onger able to remember Hiramechimedes' name correctly.
  • Beat Them at Their Own Game: Hiramechimedes concluded that intelligence is not enough to defeat the Go-Ongers, so he snuck back to Hellgailes Palace and filled a large amount of Bikkurium (which is enough for 100 Barbaric Machine Beasts) onto himself to gain more power at the cost of what's left of his sanity.

  • Insufferable Genius: Feels disrespected whenever people don't acknowledge his brilliance.
  • Meaningful Name: A combination of "Hirameki" = "Flash" ie. an idea, and Archimedes, tying him to his mathematics and strategy themes.
    • Urameshimedes is "Urameshiya" = literally an expression of envy, but the connotations are essentially the same as shouting "Boo!" + Archimedes.
  • One-Winged Angel: Overloads himself with Psycho Serum to overpower the Go-Ongers in GP 23
  • Only Mostly Dead: His grudge against the Go-ongers enables him to return as a yureinote , the undead Urameshimedes
  • Overly Long Name: Hilariously, it’s even difficult to pronounce.
  • The Starscream: Originally plotted to assassinate Yogostein and take his position, but later swore loyalty to him after he offered him a position as his second-in-command.
  • Undying Loyalty: Pledged complete loyalty to Yogostein after he named him his Vice-Minister.

  • Back from the Dead: She was later rebuilt by the Zontark as part of Noizoon's plan to build Grayzky.
  • Dark Chick: Of the three Pollution Ministers.
  • Enemy Mine: To the Go-onger girls during GP 31, though she makes it clear they will be enemies again next time.
    • Happens again in 10 Years Grand Prix when she agreed to become "Kega Yellow" (her own version of Go-on Yellow) as part of the Go-onger's plan to drag Saki out of 001.
  • Image Song: Taoyuan aka "Utopia"
  • High-Pressure Emotion: When she feels frustration she literally leaks steam
  • Meaningful Name: "Kegare" = "Impurity"
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Is somehow able to successfully pass as a human despite the giant tap on her head.
  • Robot Girl: She resembles a human, but is artificial like the rest of the Gaiark.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Zigzagged. A handful of episodes feature other female Bankis.
  • Stripperiffic: Although hardly the same level as Shelinda.
  • Super Powers for a Day: When Saki is taken hostage by the Zontark in 10 Years Grand Prix, the Go-Ongers are forced to enlist Kegalesia as her temporary replacement.
  • Verbal Tic: "(De) ojaru"

Air Pollution Minister Kitaneidas | Voice actor: Mitsuaki Madono

  • Back from the Dead: He was later rebuilt by the Zontark as part of Noizoon's plan to build Grayzky.
  • Meaningful Name: "Kitanai" = "Foul"
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Of particular note during GP 31, where he (along with his Gaiark colleagues) attempts to stop the MOTW. He gets special mention for explaining that they only want to dirty the world, not destroy it.
  • Out of Focus: In later episodes.
  • Verbal Tic: "-zoyo"

Cleaning Minister Kireizky | Voice Actor: Eiji Takemoto

  • Big Bad: He comes in to lead the Pollution Ministers following Yogostein's demise. He holds onto this role for all of two episodes and later turns out to be a subordinate to Yogoshimacritein.
  • Chekhov's Gun: The Infinite Wastebin, which Yogoshimacritein uses to arrive in Human World.
  • Disc Two Final Boss:
  • Filler Villain: His only important impacts on the plot are being revealed to have the ability to "clean" Braneworlds and having the Infinite Wastebin.
  • Knight of Cerebus: His arrival signals the start of when the show gets serious. Less so than Yogoshimacritein, but still much darker and formidable than the main three ministers.

Prime Minister Yogoshimacritein | Voice actor: Kiyoyuki Yanada

  • Abusive Parents: Denounced his son as a useless failure following his death.
  • Always a Bigger Fish: Overshadows Yogostein and Kireizky as the highest-ranked Gaiark member seen in the series, though its revealed in the final episode that even he has a boss.
  • Bad Boss: In contrast to his son, Yogoshimacritein showed no care towards his minions and even fired the two remaining Pollution Ministers to hit the Go-ongers.
  • Big Bad: Following the deaths of his son and Kireizky, Yogoshimacritein steps in and becomes the ultimate foe of the Go-ongers.
  • Evil Chancellor: His title is "Prime Minister", implying he fills this role within the overall Gaiark hierarchy.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Despite being the ultimate foe of the series, he remains distant from the main plot until after Kireizky's death..
  • Knight of Cerebus: He is significantly more serious and dangerous than the other often goofy villains in a rather lighthearted show.
  • The Man Behind the Man: Yogostein and Kireizky were working for him all along.
  • The Sociopath: He admonishes his son as a failure after his death and treats his followers as dispensable. He truly cares for no one but himself and is highly cruel even using the last two remaining pollution ministers as human shields to defend himself.
  • Verbal Tic: "-Narina"
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Well this show is noticeably Lighter and Softer than the rest of the franchise, this isn't true of Yogoshimacritein who stands as a dark villain willing to level the human world.

Pollution President Batcheed | Voice actor: Banjo Ginga

  • Big Bad: Of Shinkenger vs. Go-onger
  • Greater-Scope Villain: The true leader of the Gaiark, above even Yogoshimacritein. He only gets mentioned in the final episode as the missing President of Gaiark who was hidden in Cowboy World.
