Dragowizard, Qinus Axia

Voiced by: Tetsuharu Oota (JP), Joseph Girgis (EN)

A Dragowizard from Magic World. Originally a prize for a tournament, he ran off due to fearing that the winner would treat him poorly.

  • Affectionate Nickname: He calls Drum and Gao "Drumkins" and "Gaowow" respectively.
  • Ambiguously Gay: He's rather effeminate and extremely clingy and friendly with Drum. His card's flavor text also mentions him looking for "his prince." As well, his appearance in the Japanese Buddyfight Card of the Day on the official website refers to him as a "her".

He is the first of eight Omni Lords responsible for protecting Earth and uses a Katana World deck.

  • Amnesiac God: He doesn't remember Tenbu at all.
  • Badass Baritone: He is a very skilled Buddyfighter and has a very deep voice.
  • Beast Man: Looks like a humanoid lion dog. He's not called the First Omni Beast Lord for nothing, after all.

Ban Enma/Fourth Omni Fire Lord, Burn Nova

Ancient World

Voiced by: Toru Nara (JP), Brendan Hunter (EN, Season 2), Fraser Tuff (EN, Season 4)

A mysterious man with handle bars growing out of his head who is currently hunting for the Hundard Demons. He plays an Ancient World deck that focuses on the Raging Spirit subset of monsters and his Buddy is Dragon Kid, Ricky. He also hangs out with three other Raging Spirit Monsters and actually is one himself. His core gadget is a scooter for which his buddy skill forms the tire.

He is actually the fourth Omni Lord, Burn Nova, whose memory was wiped Gratos after his arrival on Earth. He gave his Omni Lord emblem to Ricky for safekeeping. Burn Nova is an Ancient World monster.

  • Amnesiac Hero: He can't remember anything about his past, including his actual name. Ban Enma is just a name he came up with.
    • Amnesiac God: He's actually the fourth Omni Lord, but his memory was wiped in a confrontation with Gratos after his arrival on Earth.
    • Amnesiac Dissonance: Subverted he initially pretends to have this upon regaining his memories... only to reveal he was just messing with them and he's still very much himself.
  • Beam Spam: Does this when sent into a berserk rage by Gratos. This reveals that the Buddy Skill he uses isn't Ricky's, but his own.
  • Berserk Button: Anyone else besides Ricky touching the handles on his head.
  • Detect Evil: His hair lets him detect Hundred Demons.
  • Elemental Punch: Capable of doing this despite his human appearance as part of his Omni Lord powers.
  • Fiery Redhead: He's a redhead and probably the most Hot-Blooded character after Genma. Fittingly, Genma is his Evil Counterpart after being brainwashed by Gratos and they trade punches while inside Yamigedo.
  • Fire Purifies: His fiery punches can also purify the Hundred Demons.
  • Greaser Delinquents: Styles himself as one.
  • Hot-Blooded: More so than any of the other characters. In fact, his Onmi Lord Form has the Raging Spirit attribute.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Wants to fill a kind of brotherly role for Gao after hearing about the latter's late brother.
    • Also, despite his hunting interfering with Buddy Police business, he has been purifying Hundred Demons monsters that he has captured.
  • Memory Gambit: Intentionally suppresses his own memories in order to prevent Gratos from altering them.
  • No-Sell: Hundred Demons can't possess him.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: His Raging Spirit monsters are all dragons. He himself is also one.
  • Playing with Fire: Can cover his fist in fire to achieve a Elemental Punch due to his fire powers carrying over from his Omni Lord form.
  • Power at a Price: He can summon Fourth Omni Fire Lord, Burn Nova at the cost of all the card in his hand an on his side of the field.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: He can do this as Burn Nova.

  • True Companions: Him and his Raging Spirit monsters.
    • Taking the Bullet: All Raging Spirit monsters can redirect damage from the player to themselves.
  • Vigilante Man: He hunts down Hundred Demons without the consent of the Buddy Police.
    • He also tends to be overzealous, automatically assuming that any illegal monster is one of the Hundred Demons.
  • Would Not Hit a Girl: He's willing to fake it, though.

Dragon Kid Ricky/Underling of the Fire Lord, Ricky

Voiced by: Matt Edworthy (EN)

Ban Enma's Buddy. Ricky is a young dragon from Ancient World who helps Ban in his vigilante activities.

He is in possession of one of the omni lord emblem, which he has been holding onto for Ban after the latter's memory was erased.

  • Barrier Maiden: Very weak by himself, his power is the ability to negate the life links of the other Raging Spirits.
  • Head Pet: To Ban Enma, who wears motorcycle handles on his head for that purpose.
  • Kid Sidekick: To Ban Enma.
  • Hot-Blooded: Like the other Raging Spirits, though all of them are more level-headed than Ban Enma himself.
  • Mistaken for Special Guest: Gets mistaken for an Omni Lord when it's discovered he has an emblem. It's really Ban's, Ricky was just holding onto it for him.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Has a fiery ring in place of wings.
  • Secret Keeper: For most of Hundred, he was the only one who knew that Ban Enma is actually an Omni Lord. He also carries Burn Nova's Omni Lord Emblem.
  • Sleep-Mode Size: An aversion. That is his real size.
  • Super Empowering: Can do this to Burn Nova while in his Super Mode.

Suzaku Kenran/Sixth Omni Storm Lord, Variable Cord

Star Dragon World

Voiced by: Kiuchi Hidenobu (JP), Ryan Luhning (EN), Roger Rhodes (EN, as Variable Cord)

The leader of the Buddyfight Club, an underground organization serving as a venue for various illegal activities. He uses a Star Dragon World deck with the Sixth Omni Storm Lord, Variable Cord acting as his buddy.

In truth, he is Variable Cord himself.

  • Affably Evil: He's the head of an illegal Buddyfight club where losers' Buddies are stolen, but he's never rude.
  • Actually, I Am Him: Initially deflects suspicion from himself by pretending to just be the guy who hands out invitations to Buddyfight Club. In the dub, he also affects a Deep South accent and mannerisms.
    • Also, Variable Cord isn't his buddy, but his true identity.
  • Amnesiac Hero: Variable Cord fought Yamigedo alone and then had Dynamis recruit the Omni Lords, but suffered memory loss due to being damaged. Before he went back to the future to heal, he asked Dynamis to re-recruit him as if they'd never met.
  • Awesome, but Impractical: Variable Cord's ability can put a large number of cards in its soul but doing so can deplete the player's hand.
  • Big Good: To Dynamis. Recruiting the Omni Lords was actually his idea.
  • Eyes Always Shut
  • The Four Gods: His three deus monsters resemble the other three gods. He, himself, is named after the Vermillion Bird.
  • Get Back to the Future: His objective is to return to Star Dragon World.
  • Irony: Never wanted to fight in the first place and wanted to go home. He was the first to fight Yamigedo and asked Dynamis to recruit the Omnilords.
  • I Lied: As it turns out, he never had any intention of helping seal Yamigedo and lied to Tasuku about him being tested. He just want to use Jack's power to return to Star Dragon World.
  • Jerkass: Well, he does run an illegal Buddyfight club that has "The winner takes the loser's most precious thing and can do whatever they want with it" as a rule. And then, there's him being willing to abandon his role as an Omni Lord to go back to his own world using Jacknife's powers which could have caused the latter to lose his life.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Once he regains his memories.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Abandoning his post as Omni-Lord to go back home to Star Dragon World caused a doomed timeline where Yamigeddo conquered the world causing Star Dragon World to no longer exist.
    • Stealing the Inverse Omni Lords to help Kyoya stop Yamigedo backfired spectacularly, getting all of the heroes Taken for Granite.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Variable Cord has retractable wings instead of arms as well as multiple tails. He's also from the future and has the ability to assume human form.
  • Perpetual Smiler: The times he's not smiling could be counted on one hand. He even constantly sounds amused as variable cord.
  • Refusal of the Call: He's already saved the world from Yamigedo once, now all he wants is to go home. Ironic since he was the one who put out the call in the first place.
  • Secret Test of Character: His offer to save Jack if Tasuku threw the fight turned out to be this... or not.
  • Time Travel: Due to being from Dragon World's future. He is trapped in the present due to having been recruited to defeat Yamigedo and uses a severely injured Jack to go back.
  • Trapped in Another World: Ever since Yamigedo was sealed, he and the three deus monsters were left unable to return to Star Dragon World and had to remain on Earth. At least, until Star Guardian, Jacknife came.
    • He's still trapped due to his future no longer existing. When he finds this out, he agrees to help bring Jack back to the present and help fight Yamigedo again.

Hero World

Voiced by: Yuuichi Ishigami (JP), Chris Austmen (EN)

A traveler from Hero World who wants to defeat Yamigedo. He is human despite not being from Earth. His Buddy is Shadow Hero, Schwartz and his Core Gadget is a spinning top.

He becomes the ninth Omni Lord during a tag match with Kazane after realizing what it means to be a hero.

  • Anti-Hero: His Darkhero monsters. He's also one himself, as he genuinely wants to help save the Earth but for his own selfish reasons and he isn't above resorting to underhanded methods to achieve that goal.

  • 11th-Hour Ranger: He gets Captain Answer's Omni Lord emblem after realizing what it means to be a hero.

  • Nice Hat: Wears a bamboo hat.
  • Oral Fixation: He can usually be seen with a toothpick in his mouth.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Becomes an Omni Lord after realizing that a real hero is defined by protecting others, not seeking glory.

Each of them has an ability that somehow helps their leader.

Doctor Gara/Kakeru Futaboshi

Star Dragon World (as Doctor Gara), Legend World (as Kakeru)

Voiced by: Hoshi Soichiro

A genius scientist who specializes in Monster Engineering. He attempted to kidnap Bal for the latter's ability to create new Impact Monster cards. He uses a Star Dragon World deck with Star Deity Dragon, Zodiac as his buddy. He enters the WBC regional qualifiers under the name Kakeru Futaboshi. As Kakeru, he pretends to be an aspiring monster doctor and gets close to Bal and Gao in hopes of kidnapping Bal. As Kakeru, he uses a Legend World deck, with Zodiac still as his buddy.

  • Blackmail: Threatens to have Kyoya's own research into Monster Engineering exposed if the latter tries to evict him from the facility he took over.
  • Empty Shell: According to Jack, his monsters are this. He also apparently created them.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Tasuku. Both have Star Dragon World decks and Neodragon buddies. Tasuku wants to protect Bal while Gara wants to kidnap him.
  • Forced into Evil: Tries playing this card when he, as Kakeru, appears infront of Tasuku, Jack, Gao, and Bal. Gao and Bal believed it, but Tasuku and Jack didn't buy it.
  • Labcoat of Science and Medicine: Wears one as Kakeru to enforce his cover story.
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: Wants to kidnap Bal to study the latter's ability to make new Impact Monsters and was disgraced for his previous work. His Ultimate goal was to turn Bal into a mindless beast then feed him to Zodiac to grant it Dragon World properties.
  • Nice Guy: Purposely appears as this while pretending to be Kakeru. His real personality is pretty rotten.
  • Put on a Bus: He is arrested by the Buddy Police after losing to Gao. The Buddy Police appearently got a tip about him from an anonymous source that was totally not from Kyoya.
    • The Bus Came Back: Briefly reappears to give testimony against J Genesis. Then he returns near the end to challenge Tasuku, now working for Kyoya instead of against...
  • Sadistic Choice: After giving Bal a drug that would erase his memory and turn him into a mindless beast, he gave Gao two options. Either let Zodiac eat Bal, or allow Bal to rampage and hurt his friends. Unfortunately for Gara, he didn't count on The Dragon Force.
  • Sweet Tooth: Can be seen constantly sucking on Green Lollipops. He appearently designed them to alter his metabolic structure so as to change his scent, so that he and Kakeru could not be connected via their scent.
  • Would Hurt a Child: After capturing Bal, when Bal wouldn't come out of his egg, Doctor Gara tried breaking the egg open with a drill and a chainsaw. Luckily, that egg shell is Made of Iron.
    • He then tricks Bal into taking a drug that would wipe his mind and turn him into a feral beast so he could feed Bal to Zodiac.
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair: Two shades of it, even.

Star Deity Dragon, Zodiac

An artifical monster created by Gara. Zodiac is also a Dual Card, a monster belonging to two different worlds: Legend World and Star Dragon World in its case. Zodiac is the buddy monster of both Gara and Kakeru Futaboshi. Makes sense since they're the same person.

  • Artificial Dragon: Created by Gara.
  • Empty Shell: According to Jack, it has no life force. J Genesis implies that he gave it to Gara in this state.
  • Gravity Master: Zodiac possesses an ability called Gravity Rest which allows it to prevent a monster from moving.
  • No-Sell: Its Gravity Rest ability is called an "Impact Monster Block".
  • Our Dragons Are Different: An artificial dragon with the ability to manipulate gravity. It also doesn't have a life force.
  • Physical God: If the name Star Deity Dragon wasn't enough, Kakeru outright calls it a deity of guidance.
  • Tron Lines: Its underbelly is covered in them.

Season 4 (X)

Guru Bunbuku

Divine Guardians/Searing Executioners

An old man who appeared in front of Gao and his friends after the latter had fallen unconscious due to his use of his Tempest Buster card. He is later revealed to be a Hall of Famer Buddyfighter who ends mentoring Gao and his friends. His buddy is Giant Tanuki and he uses both a Divine Guardians deck and a Searing Executioners deck, both named "Heaven or Hell."

  • Bowdlerize: His decks' name is "Heaven or Hell" in the Japanese dub. The English dub changed it to "Nirvana or Gehenna" to keep the theme while still toning the name down.
  • Cast from Hit Points: Uses his own life energy to create a second Mirage Card for Gao.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: He's... a bit eccentric.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He's almost always up to some kind of silly antics, but he's a skilled Buddyfighter. He's even able to hold his own against Wisdom.
  • Duality Motif: Not himself but the monsters he uses have this, which represents them having both the Guardians and the Executioners attributes. Fittingly, he uses both the flags associated with those attributes.
  • Hidden Eyes: Most of the time, his eyes are hidden by the Opaque Lenses of his shades. They're only shown when he's being serious.
  • Inexplicably Awesome: A Hall of Famer Buddyfighter who has demonstrated the ability to open and close portals with his own hands and is on friendly terms with at least two of the Omni Lords without any explanation being given thus far.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: He uses Searing Executioners deck when he needs to get serious.
  • The Mentor: For Gao and his friends.
