The King of Braves GaoGaiGar

    Earth Defense Force: Gutsy Geoid Guard note  
Also known as "GGG" (and pronounced "Three-G"). GGG is a classified military defense program founded after the appearance of alien EI-01, secretly backed by the Japanese government, and the global powerhouses in space technology courtesy of incorporating Japan's Space Development Corporation into its structure, which also serves as the group's public face. Based undersea beneath a man-made island near Tokyo called G Island, they defend Japan from the predations of the Zonders. After G Island is trashed in episode 30, the full international scope of GGG is revealed, they reveal themselves to the public, their operations go global, and they move into their new Orbit Base in low Earth orbit.

Guy Shishioh

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/01_02.png

Codenamed as "Cyborg Guy," Guy is the main protagonist of the series. Guy was originally a New Meat astronaut working for the Space Development Corporation, but was fatally injured by El-01 during one of his space missions, though he was lucky enough to be saved by Galeon and was found in a coma holding a G-Stone. In order to preserve his life, his father turned him into a cyborg, and used the G-stone Guy was holding as his main life support. Because of his new cyborg body, he is stronger, faster and more durable than any human, which is why he considers it his responsibility to use his enhanced body to protect humanity with the rest of the GGG. In battle, he can do a fusion with Galeon to form the Super Robot GaiGar, which in turn can do another fusion with other "Gao Machines" called the Final Fusion, forming the titular mecha GaoGaiGar. When on foot, Guy has several abilities which he can use to fight enemies hand-to-hand, including his Will Knife and Hyper Mode, the latter which can be activated for two minutes at a time to make Guy even stronger and faster.


  • Ace Pilot: What he was training to be before the accident that led to his becoming a cyborg. He gets plenty of opportunities to prove he's still got chops, too.
  • Animal Motifs: Lions. He has the character for lion in his name, his long red hair is similar to a Lion's mane, and Galeon, the mech he pilots, is modeled after a lion. Also, the series recurring theme of the power of courage means the choice of a lion as his motif is 100% deliberate, considering that Lions are often used as a symbol of courage.
  • Anti-Regeneration: As Genesic GaoGaiGar, he beats Palparepa so badly the latter struggles to regenerate.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: His name translates into "triumphant lion king."
  • Big Brother Instinct: Hurting or threatening Mamoru is a wonderful way to get some super-cyborg fist rammed down your throat.
  • Big Eater: There's an occasion where, when he and Mikoto are on their lunch break, you can see a half-dozen or so empty gyuudon bowls on his side. Apparently, it all gets incinerated inside his body and serves him no nutritional benefit, being entirely for his sanity.
  • Bishōnen: He's pretty much one of only two young adult men within the base to be good-looking.
  • Broken Bird: Zig-zagged. He was an enthusiastic new astronaut, proud to be "The World's Youngest Astronaut" at the age of 18, performing his first ever space mission. Then outer space sent an alien crushing his spaceship, making him Legally Dead (see below), and became one of the new experiments of classified military technology. He's careful not to really show this to most folks (especially Mamoru, who's usually our point-of-view character) but there are some moments where the mask slips and it's clear he's a lot more conflicted about his circumstances than he shows outwardly.
  • Celibate Hero: When you're nothing but a head attached to a walking weapon, it's not like you have much of a choice. We do get subtle hints throughout the series that this is a bit of a problem for Guy and Mikoto.
    • Subverted after the main run of the series, both Guy and Mikoto become the same species, so it's pretty likely they made up for lost time.
  • Costume Tropes: His outer armor can be taken off for him to dress down like your normal young man. Like his eating habits, this too is also for his sanity.
    • Adventurer Outfit: Wears a brown linen shirt with white pants for one of his dating hours with Mikoto.
  • Cyborg: If it wasn't obvious from his name.
  • Drop the Hammer: Goldion Hammer, and in FINAL, Goldion Crusher
  • Experienced Protagonist: The series began with Guy a few years in of being GGG's pilot, albeit painstakingly unstable and in constant need of repair. He was also already an experienced astronaut, only to become a cyborg due to a fatal injury from a space mission.
  • Fiery Redhead: As Cyborg Guy. Evoluder Guy has auburn-ish hair.
  • Gentle Giant: Guy's height towers at 6'7" (201cm), making him the second tallest person on the team note  and is by default, a man who's nice as a cuddly bear as long as he doesn't get the call to take out Zonders.
  • Happily Married High-School Sweethearts: With Mikoto starting from FINAL.
  • The Hero: Doy.
  • Hot-Blooded: To the core. Many would say that Guy is the pinnacle of Nobuyuki Hiyama's Hot-Blooded typecasting.
  • Large Ham: Zigzagged — in battle he is the pinnacle of the Screaming Warrior; outside, he's quite a calm man. The best point to see the difference is in FINAL (right at the start of this video).
  • Legally Dead: When he was found after the EI-01 incident, in order to save his life using the newly found G-Stone, his father Leo Shishioh was forced to submit Guy's death certificate and even hold his son's public burial, so that Leo could proceed in preserving his son's life at the cost of turning him into an experimental weapon. Even Mikoto was unaware of Guy being alive until Leo found Mikoto sobbing at Guy's grave, and secretly told her about this classified project. This is why Guy is codenamed as "Cyborg Guy" rather than using his real name, and is also why Mikoto is so high-strung about Guy being put in danger - she has already experienced the pain of his death once, and what she's living right now is a dream that she's afraid could end at any moment. note 
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: He was a short-haired Bishōnen to begin with, but once he became a cyborg, his hair was lengthened to be designed as his supermode battery pack. Once he evolved into an Evoluder, his long hair turned back to average mid-length, but he end up growing his hair back to long length by the time of FINAL.
  • Ma'am Shock: Male version. Guy wasn't keen on Mamoru calling him "oji-san" ("Mister") in the first episode, citing that he's only 20. note  Mamoru settles on "Guy-nii-chan" ("Big brother Guy", lit.).
  • Mad Scientist's Hot Son: Both biologically and literally. He's the biological son of inventor, and GGG's lead mechanical engineer, Leo Shishioh, and got his good looking genes from his mom. Then when he got fatally injured into near death, his dad kept his life via turning practically more than 95% of his flesh into a walking weapon.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: His first act of business after obtaining Genesic GaoGaiGar.
    Guy: You 11 Sol Masters. I...Will...Destroy...ALL OF YOU!!!
  • Technopath: After becoming an Evoluder. To be blunt, his newly gained superpowers are boiled down to computer programming, hacking, and breathing in space.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Given to Palparepa during the climax of their last battle in FINAL.
    Guy: The reason you tried to seal off GGG...! The reason you couldn't come close to the G-Crystal...! The reason you isolated GaoFighGar...! The reason you didn't come to directly attack our Earth...! It's all because you feared us! The G-Stone's power can only grow and surpass the power of the Loud G-Stone! This is the energy BORN FROM COURAGE!!
  • Spell My Name with an "S":
    • An interesting example - in Japanese, Guy's name is usually given entirely in kanji, as 獅子王凱, or "Shishioh Gai" when transliterated into anglo-roman letters in standard Hepburn romanization, and you'll sometimes see fans or external publications print his given name as "Gai" as a result (that being how you spell 凱 when romanized). However, the show itself is actually extremely consistent in spelling his name as "Guy", even when discussing him before his accident (when he became "Cyborg Guy"). While "Guy" is a perfect homophone of "Gai" in English, so it's phonetically correct, there's still no romanization system that would naturally produce "Guy" from 凱, so you'll still find examples (occasionally on this very wiki!) of his name being spelled "Gai".
      • The fact that the official Media Blasters DVD release spells his name as "Gai" doesn't help matters either.
    • Not helping this is are the robot names. The whole conceit of the titular robot is, of course, that it's a combination of its components - the Gao Machines, Guy (or Gai) Shishioh, and "long ga" from Galeon (which of course runs into its own issue). And of course, the robot's name is consistently spelled, in romanji, GaoGaiGar. Ditto the base form GaiGar.
  • Teen Genius: Do you know how long and hard it takes to become a professional astronaut? Guy earned his qualification at age 18, which means he sacrificed all of his childhood to get this job.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Goes into this after fighting EI-03, and would have crushed the core he'd just ripped out (killing the Zonderized human), if Mamoru hadn't gotten there in time. Also towards the end of his fight with the Zonuda, though that's more 'frenzied' than 'rage'.
  • We Can Rebuild Him: Primarily by his father. He takes pride in being the "Strongest Cyborg in History".

Mamoru Amami / Latio

A young elementary school boy who after the emergence of El-02 and the following Zonder attacks finds himself discovering hidden powers, involving purification of Zonder cores. Unknown to him, he was found aboard Galeon several years before by his adoptive parents, and got taken in as their child.


  • Badass Adorable: He's able to battle Primevals and Zonuda.
  • But Now I Must Go: At the end of the series, he leaves Earth in Galleon.
  • Catchphrase: "Wah-Ha~!" He caught the influence from his dad.
  • Expy: He's pretty much the happy kid version of Takeru Myoujin.
  • Hair Colors: He is usually brown-haired, but his hair turns green when his powers activate.
  • Happily Adopted: He's not initially aware of this.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: Although his purification abilities are mainly used to revert Zonderised humans to normal, they can be used as a weapon, as seen in FINAL when he vaporized Pei Le Cain.
  • Human Alien: It's never entirely explained why the people of the Trinary Solar System look just like humans. He's also apparently sufficiently similar to a real human to pass as one even under significant scrutiny, as episode 3 shows.
  • Kid Hero: He's nine years old when the series start.
  • Moses in the Bulrushes: How his parents find him, give or take one giant robot lion.
  • Puppy Love: All throughout the series, it's really clear that he and Hana have this relationship and they're both a little embarrassed - but still happy - about it.
    • Hana wears a wedding dress at the end of episode 49 and gets a smooch on the forehead from Mamoru before he left Earth showing how official it is.
  • Shounen Hair: Up to Eleven. His hair is a big ball of fluff with its length as long as he is, yet it can stay up-straight all by itself as if it has no gravity problems.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In spades. Starts out by flying towards the giant Shinjuku-crushing robot in the first episode, and eventually works his way up to fighting Zonuda alongside Galeon.

Mikoto Utsugi / Zonuda

Guy's High School Sweetheart. As if nearly losing Guy in the EI-01 incident wasn't bad enough, it also landed on her house, killing both her parents. Nonetheless, she has remained loyally at Guy's side through his reconstruction and rehabilitation, and continues to work by his side in the GGG Main Order Room.


  • Brainwashed and Crazy: When she turns into Zonuda, this is what happens.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Throughout the course of the television series, even though Mikoto and Guy have technically been dating since high school, Mikoto never had guts to actually confess her feelings towards Guy in any form; as Mikoto was shown holding onto her unsent Love Letter to Guy stuffed in one of her photo albums. It isn't until the Z-Master was defeated that she gives her letter to Guy. And then after being beaten as Zonda that the two admit their love for each other.
  • Godiva Hair: Towards the end of Final, where the Fanservice gets cranked Up to Eleven.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She calls her hairstyle, "The Bunny".
  • Happily Married High-School Sweethearts: With Guy starting from FINAL.
  • Power Floats: As Zonda, her feet never touch the ground.
  • Tender Tears: She cries a lot for her man, Guy better be paying her with lots of apologies after each battle.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In Final. Not only does she smash the G-Crystal to enable the Genesic Drive, but she also works with Mamoru to telepathically free Guy from the Chemical Bolts, and she's strapped into the Goldion Crusher at the end.

Koutaro Taiga

Voiced by: Kouji Ishii (JP), Dan Green (EN)

The leader of GutsyGeoidGuard which is later renamed as, Gutsy Galaxy Guard, Taiga is an idealistic individual who authorizes all of the organization's operations, including deployment of the robots of the organization and the approvals for the use of Final Fusion and Goldion Hammer, amongst several other weapons used by GaoGaiGar.


  • Badass Normal: Especially after an episode in which he fought off possessed employees with a golf club. We find out in a Drama CD that he used to lead a Sentai-esque commando team. Yes, he used a golf club as his primary weapon then.
  • Benevolent Boss: He cares deeply for every member of his organization, either them be humans, cyborgs, or A.I robots.
  • Hot-Blooded: Even for a guy who mostly hangs out in the Main Order Room, he manages to pull this off well.
  • Large Ham: Almost every single order is done in the most epic way possible.

Leo Shishioh

Voiced by: Kenichi Ogata (JP), Marc Diraison (EN)

GGG Japan's lead mechanical engineer and Guy's Father. Rather spry for his old age, and regularly wears rocket skates.


  • Cool Old Guy: What else could a old guy who creates giant robots to defend the earth and wears rocket skates be?
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He designs gadgets ranging from epic super robots for combat, to the wacky little things for his convenience. Like his "hair powder applier", and "Nail-Clipper Robot".
    • Do you know how Mikoto's radical Girlish Pigtails were formed? It was done by a type of static-controlling hairband to make her hair "stick" evenly onto those bands and form whatever hairstyle she can dream of. That very hairband was invented by Leo Shishioh, and was sold like hotcakes in public. note 
  • Killed Off for Real: Especially jarring for an anime example. It only had a muddled Foreshadowing, happened within seconds, and he was stuck in such a situation, with such a short time frame, that the only thing a genius like him could was to scream "NOOO!" He appears alongside his wife as a Spirit Advisor to Guy shortly after.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: While he and Liger are different age, they look like identical twins. Despite their vastly different fashion choices,note  the only other way to tell them apart seems to be that Leo has thin eyebrows and large mustache, Liger's are other way around.
  • May–December Romance: It's implied via Leo's flashback that he and his wife, Kizuna are this.
  • Mission Control: In Main Order Room, of course, but prior to the events of the TV show he gave orders to the special commando team ID5, which Taiga and Hyuuma were once part of.
  • Sibling Rivalry: His relationships with his brother Liger could be a bit less of an insult war at times.

Liger Shishioh

GGG America's lead mechanical engineer. He's the elder brother of Leo Shishioh, uncle of Guy Shishioh, and Father to Renais Cardiff Shishioh.


  • Cool Old Guy: He's technically older than Leo, but he still dresses like a teenage rockstar. And is actually one given his relation to Sakura.
  • Rocket Punch: The hand doesn't come off, but he still uses a rocket booster to give his brother a TigerLiger Uppercut.
  • Sibling Rivalry: As mentioned above with Leo.

Voiced by: Hisao Egawa (JP), Marc Thompson (EN)


  • The Big Guy: Barring Guy and perhaps Mamoru, he is the only major human(oid) member of GGG that does any form of direct fighting (and trained Hyoryu and Enryu as well). Justified, in that he has a a military background and GGG seems to consist of mostly civilians.
  • Genius Bruiser: He's a very muscular guy, but he's the mission strategist in the GGG.
  • A Glass in the Hand: A Running Gag involves him crushing his communicators. (He actually carries several in his vest.)
  • Macho Camp: Looks the part, but his sexual orientation is never even remotely hinted at.
  • Hot-Blooded: Perhaps even rivaling Guy's. However, he's also GGG's mission planner and keeps a cool analytical mind in this capacity.
  • The Strategist: Hyuuma's official position in GGG is "mission strategist", not "Muscles McMuscles".

Kousuke Entouji

Voiced by: Tsutomu Kashiwakura (JP), Wayne Grayson (EN)

GGG Intelligence Operator and computer programmer. Slovenly but kind-hearted.


  • Genius Slob: His only really negative character trait. The guy's lack of hygiene is pretty noticeable.
  • Heroic BSoD: Papillion's death in FINAL hit him pretty hard.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Tends to act this way towards Volfogg. It's believed that he was friends with the dead agent Volfogg's Super AI was based on - this explains why Volfogg's death against Penchinon hits him so hard.
  • Improbably High I.Q.: Officially 300. Although it seems his father programmed Bay Tower Base's main systems, Kousuke did everything else. Alone.
  • Mission Control: Although he generally only communicates directly with Volfogg (who belongs to GGG Intel and is, at least technically, a subordinate).
  • Tragic Keepsake: The large bow Papillon places in his hair.
  • Ugly Guy Hot Girl: Just how did he get Papillon?
  • Workaholic: To the point that he sleeps better in the base than at home.

Voiced by: Hiroaki Ishikawa (JP), Marc Thompson (EN)

GGG's Mechanic Operator, and is in charge of repairs and maintenance. Tends to be more of a background character than the other main GGG characters.


  • The Caretaker: Seems to be taking care of his three younger brothers, in the absence of any parents, and they are luckily never the source of angst for him. Otherwise, this is his basic job description towards the Yuusha Corps as well, and at one point we see him watering the plants in the background of Main Order Room.
  • Mission Control: To the point where if he leaves the base, it's because he's not working, or someone dragged him.
    • And then he goes and drives Drill Gao into battle.
  • Stout Strength: Aversion — he's big and a bit wide, but is of average strength and health. (Hyuuma frequently tells him to work out more, in fact.)

Voiced by: Hiroshi Naka (JP)

Chief of GGG China, and lead developer of Twin A.Is Fuuryu and Rairyu.


  • Asian and Nerdy: Even though GGG Japan's Leo and Liger are as Asian and nerdy as Long-Li, but Long-Li's mindset is less flexible compare to them when it comes to socialization.
  • Expy: Of Gendo Ikari from Neon Genesis Evangelion.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He may be very prideful and demeaning of others, but he's willing to soften himself up to adapt new philosophies, and has the heart to do the right things for the right people.

    GGG Mecha 

Galeon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eca19859c241aeb6259d01fa3b2d8562.png

An extraterrestrial robotic lion who saved Guy's life following his encounter with EI-01 and brought Mamoru to his foster parents.

Galeon is able to fuse with Guy to form the mechanoid GaiGar, and form the titular GaoGaiGar through Final Fusion with the Gao Machines.


  • Black Box: On Galeon's back, containing information about G-Stone based technology, used as the basis for most of the robots in the cast.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: The Amamis refer to Galeon as the "North Pole Lion", due to the circumstances under which they first met him (it wouldn't be surprising if the rest of the world did until GGG went public).
  • Papa Wolf: If Galeon senses that Mamoru is in trouble, he'll go help him. And actually hurting him will result in general rage. Kill him, and no god can help you.

Hyoryuu & Enryuu / Chouryuujin

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/98d8df05e7a4aea450e8b634b37f5146.png
Voiced by: Shinichi Yamada (JP) , Christopher Kromer (EN, Hyoryuu), David Wills (EN, Enryuu)

Hyoryuu (Ice Dragon) and Enryuu (Fire Dragon) are a pair of highly-advanced AI's developed by GGG, and installed in a pair of Transforming bodies; a crane and firetruck respectively. When the two brothers' sympa-rates reach 100%, they are both able to combine their bodies via Symmetrical Docking and merge into Chouryuujin (Super Dragon God).

Hyoryu's the elder twin using a high tender voice, while Enryu's the younger twin using a coarser voice.


  • An Ice Person: Hyoryuu's weapons.
  • Attack Reflector: Enryu's Mirror Shield.
  • Awesome McCoolname: Choryujin's name literally means Super Dragon God!
  • Chest Blaster: Chest Thriller/Warmer, cold and hot respectively.
    • Also, SUPERNOVA!!
  • Combining Mecha: "Symmetrical Docking!" Note that Chouryuujin's personality seems to be Hyoryuu's expression (relatively polite) with Enryuu thinking ("I'm gonna stop that meteorite WITH MA CHEST!").
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Choryuujin gets cut straight down the middle by P-Vater, but given the nature of the combination, this does absolutely nothing to Horyuu and Enryuu themselves.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Chouryuujin primary objective is saving lives - if his life is all it takes to save a few lives, he'll deflect meteorites with his body.
  • Historical In-Joke: Chouryuujin killed the dinosaurs!
  • Hot-Blooded: Enryuu is, but Hyoryuu's closer to The Stoic. (They have a scene where they, twin robots that literally grew up together, argue about this in regard to which one of them is better suited to protecting Mamoru. note )
  • Playing with Fire: Enryuu's weapons.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Hyoryuu being the blue one and Enryu being the red one.
  • Running Gag: Enryuu never seems to be able to land properly. Eventually he just rolls with it, ultimately getting so good at it that he can catch a falling Eiffel Tower lift while landing.
  • The Slow Path: How they come back from one Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Taking You with Me: SUPERNOVA's very powerful, but it requires the brothers to turn their ChestBlasters to "infinite" at point-blank range, forcing a win through temperature shock. But they don't walk away from it...

Fuuryuu & Rairyuu / Gekiryuujin

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/c8268a4764b3ae2c65cfa70ae0eae361.png
Voiced by: Shinichi Yamada (JP)

Fuuryuu (Wind Dragon) and Rairyuu (Thunder Dragon) are brother machines to Hyoryuu and Enryuu developed by GGG China. Their vehicle forms are a cement mixer and dump truck respectively, and by default, they would perform the symmetrical dock with each other forming Gekiryuujin (Assault Dragon God). When enhanced by THE POWER, they would be able to perform cross-symmetrical docks with their Japanese brothers to form Genryuujin (Mystical Dragon God) note , and Gouryuujin (Strong Dragon God). note 

Fuuryuu's the elder twin using a proper high pitch voice, while Rairyuu's the younger twin using lower coarse voice. Both of them have a prideful yet obedient personality, but they softened up and became very polite once they got the hang of their Japanese brothers' way of socialization.


  • Arm Cannon: Fuuryuu's mixer barrel cover's Gekiryuujin (and Gouryujinu)'s arm.
  • Blow You Away: Fuuryuu.
  • Combining Mecha: Although unlike Choryuujin, Gekiryuujin seems to have Fuuryuu's thinking with Rairyuu's expression - he has a cool head, but is a little rude.
  • Hot Wings: Shan Tou Long / Maximum Tou Long
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Fuuryuu's the blue oni, Rairyuu's the red oni.
  • Running Gag: Enryuu's problem carries over to Rairyu.
  • Shock and Awe: Rairyuu's element.
  • Sky Surfing: Rairyuu rides his dumper to fly.
    • Which is ironic considering he's shown to be just as incompetent as Enryuu at landing.
  • Taking You with Me: Apparently, Gekiryuujin's been carrying around a powerful self-destruct device in his left shoulder. He uses this, in a Shout-Out to Getter Robo, to destroy Ptulone in FINAL.

Volfogg

Voiced by: Katsuyuki Konishi (JP), Marc Thompson (EN)

An AI Robot developed for GGG intelligence and assigned to protect Mamoru in battle. Can combine with the vehicles GunGrue and GunDober to form Big Volfogg.


  • Back from the Dead: Volfogg's AI is based off of an intelligence agent who was killed before the start of the series.
  • Badass Arm-Fold: Probably his signature stance, even his transformation sequences tend to end with it!
  • Combining Mecha: With the Gun Machines into Big Volfogg, who is much more suited to direct combat. (Unlike the other Yuusha Corps, they are the same person and not a gestalt personality.)
  • Helicopter Blender: Big Volfogg's Murasame Sword. Justified, as it's purpose-made and he's coating them with Mirror Particles during use - enough that it can double as a shield in a pinch.
  • Ninja: Justified, as he actually belongs to GGG's intelligence department and was designed around intelligence gathering and recon. In practice, Volfogg is closer to Real Life ninja, while Big Volfogg resembles a fictional one.
    • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Almost literally even, since he is a ninja police robot and comes back from the dead a couple of times.

Mic Sounders the 13th

Click here to see him in Boom Form 
Voiced by: Mitsuo Iwata (JP)

A robot developed by GGG America. His default form has the appearance of a gigantic toy robot, gleefully serving as a transportation ship for GGG members to fly around town. But when things get serious, he would be able to transform into a badass rocker robot shooting out sound waves to distraught or destroy his enemies depending on what "music disc" he's playing. His AI was based on Stallion White.


  • Bishōnen Line: He goes from a silly, cutesy, and cartoony-looking robot shaped vaguely like a jukebox to a cool looking mecha in his Boom Form.
  • Gratuitous English: A huge part of his gimmick - he sprinkles his speech with English terminology that the kids at home will probably be able to parse and talks like Japanese isn't his first language.
  • Keet: At keet-ish as a robot can be, anyway.
  • Lethal Joke Character: Contrary to show tradition, he is introduced as pretty goofy and completely harmless in his miniature Cosmo Robo form. However, after System Changing to his Boom Robo form, he reveals the ability to use sound waves to destroy anything on a cellular level. He would be a complete game-breaker if he didn't need to have special music discs created and tuned precisely to his specific target in advance, lest he accidentally destroy the Earth.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: His moveset. Without using special disks (stored in his flying platform "Studio 7" and inserted into the disk player in his chest), he can manipulate sound to have physical effects. With disks, he can do things like shatter objects by manipulating their specific frequencies - up to and including the Earth.
  • The Power of Rock / Musical Assassin - Plenty of both, since he can both use his music to empower the heroes or weaken the enemy.
    • There's a scene, just before GGG leaves for Jupiter, where he's playing in a concert for the Orbit Base staff.
  • Primary-Color Champion: There's no better way to show the world that he's "Made In USA".
  • Spell My Name with an "S":
    • Mic himself isn't a problem... but his transport is. The eye-catches title it the "Baribarien", and it's spelled in kana as バリバリーン ("baribariin", essentially). Mic's pronunciation of it, however, often led fansubbers and others to call it things like "Barbarian" or "Barbareen", since the onomatopoeic connection it has is way less clear than some of Mic's other equipment ("baribari" is onomatopoeia for the ripping sound teeth can make... and what does the front of the vehicle look like?) "Baribarien" also doesn't lend itself terribly well to the phonetics actually used by バリバリーン.
    • Also, when it flips over and becomes Mic's stage, it's pretty clearly meant to be the "Studio 7"... but the eyecatch accidentally calls it the "Stadio 7". Whoops!
  • Theme Naming: Mic's equipment is largely named after the Japanese onomatopoeia which it invokes. The "Baribarien" is explained above; the "Giragirahn VV" keytar is related to the "kira-kira" sound effect, of sparkling or being dazzling; his Dokadokahn V microphone is a twofer, both an onomatopoeia for making noise and "dokaan" being the sound effect for an explosion (thus his title of "Boom Robo").
  • Unseen Prototype: Averted. Later on in the series we get to see the other 12 Mic Sounders robots.
  • Verbal Tic: "DA-MON-NE~!" "NE~!" when he's in his Cosmo mode, then "DA-ZEE!" "ZE!" for his Boom mode.
  • Wingding Eyes: From wacky text to slot machine, his Cosmo Form has this huge screen for his eyes to let him play with all kinds of fun emotions.

Goldy Marg

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/11d0e4bf3bb26b922505f601bc3c8423.png
Voiced by: Hisao Egawa (JP), Greg Abbey (EN)
Part of a system designed to protect GaoGaiGar from the effects of the Goldion Hammer. Goldy Marg was built to carry the Hammer, which is incorporated into his construction, into battle. As he's built specifically to withstand the power of the Goldion Hammer, Goldymarg is the toughest and strongest of the GGG robots. Given the short time of his creation, his AI was based on Geki Hyuuma rather than being developed from scratch like the others.
  • The Big Guy: He has a lazer cannon, but prefers to use his fists and his nigh-indestructible body in mechanoid form to fight. He knows how to use them, too; only King J-Der is physically stronger than he is.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: His whole personality.
  • Drop the Hammer: Hell, he is the Hammer!
  • Genius Bruiser: It doesn't come up much (Goldy's very much aware that he's the Finishing Move), but he IS based on GGG's mission planner. He does exactly the right thing when the 31 Primevals attack Orbit Base, for example.
  • Go Out with a Smile: Even though he doesn't have a mouth, in the last episode of FINAL, after Pisa Sol is destroyed, one could tell he was smiling before the screen faded to white.
  • Hot-Blooded: Well, his personality IS based on Geki Hyuuma, so...
  • Swiss Army Weapon: The handle of the Goldion Hammer is the barrel of his tank form's gun. The tires of his tank form 'nails' in hand form.
  • Tank Goodness: His vehicle form is that of a tank.

    Other Characters 

Isamu and Ai Amami

Voiced by: Kōzō Shioya (Isamu, JP), Ed Paul (Isamu, EN), Sayuri Yamauchi (Ai, JP), Eileen Stevens (Ai, EN)

Mamoru's adoptive parents. Isamu works at the Space Development Corporation note  while Ai is a stay-at-home mother. They tend to fret a bit when Mamoru might be in trouble.


  • Catchphrase: "Wah-Ha~!" It runs in the family.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Daddy Isamu would flip in happiness to welcome his son back home albeit by drifting and destroying their mail post.
  • Good Parents: Basically, they're the Japanese Kents: they lovingly raised a boy from another world as their own, who'd later become the savior of mankind. Hell, they even named him Mamoru, which means "to protect"; it's obvious they were raising him to be a good boy.
  • Muggle Foster Parents: And, as far as Mamoru is concerned, they are his parents.

Hana Hatsuno

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dd738ef64cae9c50dd4111a81e02212f.png
Voiced by: Konami Yoshida (JP), Eileen Stevens (EN)

Mamoru's classmate who has a long-standing (mutual!) crush on him. Tends to get caught up in Zonder attacks throughout the show.


  • Catchphrase: "Kowakunai, Kowakunai..." ("I'm not scared, I'm not scared...") Mamoru taught it to her, back in Hokkaido. Given the dangers she often faces, it's more of a Survival Mantra.
    • Badass Creed: Hits a climax when she attacks the Zonderized Assistant Principal on her own.
  • Cry Cute: Several times.
  • Distressed Damsel: Poor girl.
  • Dog Walks You: Played as a Running Gag. Justified by Yosef being at least twice Hana's size. She has better luck with Yosef's puppies in FINAL - but there's a whole pack of them!
  • Nice Girl: She's a very kind child.
  • Puppy Love: Hana and Mamoru have a Childhood Marriage Promise dating back to when they lived in Hokkaido (4 years before the series started). They make good on it in the last episode.
  • Weirdness Magnet: At times, it's like the Zonders have their eye on her rather than Mamoru. (Luckily, at no point do they seem to be aware of her connection to Mamoru.)
  • You Gotta Have Pink Hair: Her parents have normal hair colors, too.

Sueo "Ushii" Ushiyama

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/76ec5cd159b6242da8c2f00ac425da2e.png
Voiced by: Hiroaki Ishikawa (JP)

Another classmate of Mamoru and the youngest brother of Kazuo.


  • Animal Theme Naming: His family holds the surname of "Ox Mountain," and his friends uses the Affectionate Nickname of "Ushii" on him.
  • The Big Guy: Subversion - while he's definitely the largest of Mamoru's friends, his defining trait is his interest in military mechanics (some of which are leaked from his older brother) ...and he's probably not as strong as Reiko.
  • Expy: Of Takeshi Goda from Doraemon. But his personality and actions are no way near like a bully, and instead is a rather competent big brother figure towards his friends.

Takayasu Sunou

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/62676bf62a9a8c33b09b8f83c8fd9b50.png
Voiced by: Tsutomu Kashiwakura (JP)
Another of Mamoru's classmates. Comes from a fairly rich family, and has a habit of trying to impress his friends with trendy techs and tales of family trips.
  • Expy: Of Suneo Honekawa from Doraemon.
  • Hair Flip: Does this a lot.
  • Idle Rich: Another big part of his personality.
  • Ocular Gushers: Resorts to these when either A) Reiko cuts him down a few notches or B) when he's caught up in a Zonder attack.
  • Rich Bastard: Shows signs of growing into this. That is, if Reiko hasn't humbled him out of it by then.

Reiko Komori

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9160188b81e73dc42b6ca5575b15b722.png
Voiced by: Miki Narahashi (JP), Annice Moriarty (EN)

Somewhat stuck-up classmate of Mamoru and Hana. Her family is even richer than the Sunous, and she takes great delight in one-upping Sunou or otherwise deflating him whenever he starts bragging.


  • Catchphrase: She loves to use the mixed-language phrase "chou very" (or "super very", fully translated) as an adjective for things.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: We find out in a CD Drama that her father is dead and her family, while once rich, is actually broke — we get a peek at this during episode 26 (when the gang thinks the rest of their class is dead, and Reiko simultaneously is a bit calmer and also a bit more morose about the idea), and that may be her cheap apartment that she's in front of in her first FINAL appearance. She hides this from her friends but acts 'rich' for seemingly this trope.
  • Hidden Depths: They don't get explored much — she's a very tertiary character after all — but they are there. One of the Drama CDs gives us a peek at it, and we also get a glimpse of it in episode 26 of the show itself. As noted, her father died before the start of the show, and it's clearly had an effect on the poor nine-year-old Reiko. In episode 26, in particular, she's a lot more philosophical about the idea of most of her classmates dying than a grade schooler has any right to be, and it's clear that a lot of her attitude is a front to avoid showing her friends her pain.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: She may detest the weaklings around her and have her own subordinates in school, but she's generally good to those she recognize as her friends from the bottom of her heart, and in particular she's a genuine friend to Hana.
  • The Nicknamer / Fun with Acronyms: Comes up with acronyms for just about anybody. Especially attractive males.
  • Precocious Crush: She's fallen pretty hard for her "long haired hunk", AKA Guy Shishioh. She is also highly annoyed to discover he's already taken.
  • Super-Strong Child: Hoists up Mamoru, Hana, Takayasu, and Usshii all at once as they attempt to save Hana dropping into the ocean when they were stuck on EI-02.
    • She picked up a teacher's desk and hurled it at a window trying to escape from a Zonderized vice principal.

Ikumi Kaidou / Arma

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/c053870380483b466f2cfc229061bb25.png
Voiced by: Sayuri Yamauchi (JP)

A classmate of Mamoru's who is silent and always seems distant. He does not play a significant role for most of the series but seems to recognize Pizza whenever he appears.


  • Artificial Human: Not especially played up, though.
  • Bloody Horror: Only shown as silhouette, but during his first confrontation with Palus Abel in episode 3 of FINAL, his body is completely twisted and mangled by her attack. However, when he is seen later attached to Pia Decem Pit's computer, he seems to be fine.
  • It's Not You, It's My Enemies: A more familial version. Arma avoided becoming too attached to his human classmates and family in order to avoid hurting any of them when he was gone, and to avoid leaving any openings that enemies could exploit. It didn't work - not the first time, anyway.
  • Meaningful Name: Arma is Italian for "weapon".
  • Override Command: Palus Abel used him to shut down Soldato J's J-Jewel.
  • Psychic Powers: The first hint that there's something not quite right about Kaidou is when he starts throwing telekinetic blasts around.

Ayame Hatsuno

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/db2c5bcf5c4ee008d9d5853ddc99fdd5.png
Voiced by: Miki Narahashi (JP)

Hana's older middle school female cousin who's into masculine hobbies such as military mechanics, motorbike racing, and professional wrestling.


Kizuna Shishioh

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3e370474fcae7699c75116cc977bcdb5.png

The wife of Leo Shishioh and Mother of Guy. She was an astronaut presume dead from her crew's fatal space mission to explore Jupiter.


  • Death by Origin Story: Her presumed failed space mission is what inspired her son, Guy to follow her footsteps in becoming an astronaut, so that he would be able to have the chance to one day travel to Jupiter to investigate her cause of death. note 
  • Posthumous Character: When she died at Jupiter, her spirit somehow survived thanks to THE POWER. She attempted to communicate with her son, but even with THE POWER, all she could do was project visions of her younger self silently expressing one of three emotions (the "Three Sisters") into Gai's optic processor, and only when Gai was in space. This was more than enough to save her son's life several times. During the battle at Jupiter near the end of the original series, she is reunited with Leo after his death, and the two of them are able to bestow THE POWER upon Gai and the other GGG Brave Robots.

Cain

Voiced by: Koichi Chiba (JP)

The leader of the Green Planet and father of Latio/Mamoru.


  • Big Good: He is the one who created the G-Stones and Galeon and hid his data within him to allow the heroes to create the technology they need to fight the Zonders.
  • Posthumous Character: Long since dead but an AI copy of him is stored within Galeon.
  • Moses in the Bulrushes: Sent his son away on Galeon to the Blue Planet (Earth) to escape the mechanicalization of their home planet.

Cain's Wife

The wife of Cain and mother of Latio/Mamoru.
  • Ambiguous Situation: She seems to possess some sort of connection to Mikoto but exactly what is unclear. Mikoto is the only one who can hear her voice and she appears in place of Mikoto when she bids farewell to Mamoru and Kaidou at the end of FINAL.

    Zonders 

In general

Mysterious beings made of mysterious metal, known as Zonder Metal.

  • The Assimilator: Zonder Metal can absorb machines, often replicating their functions. Strangely, it does not seem to absorb humans, even when they are inside the converted machines.
  • Bishōnen Line: Their life cycle goes shaggy, mechanical humanoid Blob Monster -> Robeast after fusing with a human -> Robeast seeding more Zonder Spores to make other Zonders -> Intelligent humanoid Zonderian with the capacity to become a Robeast if need be.
  • Gone Horribly Right: They were created to absorb stressful emotions and convert them into energy to relieve stress. They're still acting on that goal, they simply believe that they need to assimilate all life in the universe to do that.
  • Mechanical Abomination: Pasder and all of the Primevals are this. They're sapient pieces of the Z-Crystal, the object that controls everything that's been corrupted by Zonder Metal. They can create Zonder Metal within their bodies to create new minions, and they assimilate almost any material - including moons!
  • Our Monsters Are Weird: While many Zonders look like garden variety Humongous Mecha, there are some that become incredibly strange objects that barely look mechanical.
  • Robeast: Most of them are this, and all Zonders have the potential to grow into one.
  • Theme Naming: Every named Zonderian's name starts with P, except the Zonuda and Z-Master.
  • The Virus: New independent Zonder creatures seemingly can only be created through infecting sapient species.

Pasder (EI-01)

Voiced by: Kenichi Ogata (JP)
The original Extraterrestrial Intelligence that landed on Earth at the beginning of the show, hence its designation. Pasder spends the next two years regaining his strength before finally reawakening and summoning four Machine Kings to begin the process of slowly Zonderising the entire planet. As soon as he finds out that Galeon is awake, he orders all four to hunt down and destroy the "Legacy of Cain" (No, not that one) but is ultimately defeated by our heroes with a liberal application of hammer to the face.

  • Big Bad: Of the first half of the series.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Doesn't personally take direct action against the GGG, until episode 30.
  • Tokyo Tower: After absorbing a large amount of machines, Pasder disappears to hide under Tokyo Tower for 2 years.

EI-02 AKA Garbage Amalgam Robo

The second EI, and the first Zonder faced in the show. He was formed from a homeless man from Garbage Island named Kinzou Kodakarayama's desire for revenge against City Hall, and created from all of the garbage found on it, and also has a horse's head.

EI-03 AKA Iron Ball Machine Robo

A Zonder formed from the aggressive reigning champion of the SMW Pro Wrestling League, Bomber Death, merged with both the wrestling ring he was on and a nearby demolition crane.

EI-04 AKA Triple Locomotive Robo

A Zonder formed from Youichi Yamanoguchi, a troubled boy who envied the power of steam locomotives, merging with a near-by steam locomotive.

EI-05 AKA Space Shuttle Robo

A Zonder formed from Youichi Yamanoguchi, who escaped due to Mamoru not being there to purify him. He merges with a Space Development Corporation space shuttle mounted to a new type of engine.

    The Four Machine Kings 

Pizza / Soldato-J No. 002

Voiced by: Mitsuaki Madono (JP)

The most aggressive and warlike of the four Machine Kings. His martial pride causes him to clash with Guy at several points throughout the series and eventually causes him to remember details of his past.

  • Big Damn Heroes: Just when GaoGaiGar is on its knees and about to be torn limb from limb by three of the Primevals, the J-Ark shows up out of nowhere and blasts two of them to smithereens in the space of about a minute.
  • Cool Plane: His victims usually employ a sky motif while he himself uses one in the final clash between GGG and the zonderians in Tokyo city.
  • Cool Starship: J-Bird and J-Ark
  • That Man Is Dead
    Mamoru: You're Pizza of the Four Machine Kings!
    Soldato-J: That was a false name! The man named Pizza is dead! I am J. Reborn by the J-Jewel as Soldato-J!

Pinchernone (pronounced Penchinon) / Tomoro-117

Voiced by: Tsutomu Kashiwakura (JP)
The insidious and calculating member of the Machine Kings, Pinchernone is best known for his sailor uniform/Monster Clown outfit and his downright creepy laugh. He serves as another foil for Pizza, whom he works most often with, and the two could almost be considered friends, if machine lifeforms can have friends. Pinchernone also develops a rivalry of sorts with Volfogg.

  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: He IS a Zonderized computer, after all. He gets better after purification, though.
  • The Brute: When the Zondarians take direct action and turn themselves into Zonder Robos, he's just about had it with Volfogg...
  • Cool Boat: His victims usually have some kind of naval motif, and his Zonderian form is that of a huge ship. Same goes for the J-Ark too, since his purified form is it's main computer.
  • Cool Starship: He becomes the main computer for one after his purification.
  • Evil Laugh: BRRREEEEEEEEE!
  • Heel–Face Turn: Like Soldato J, he gets purified by Arma.
  • Humanoid Abomination: His human form barely looks human. His teeth are so massive, he's stuck with a permanent Slasher Smile. He's always sitting, even while falling. Also: BRRRREEEEEEEE~!note 

Primada

Voiced by: Sayuri Yamauchi (JP)
The most outgoing and playful of the four Machine Kings. Primada usually appears as a ballerina with clothes made of car parts, and is almost always dancing in her on-screen appearance

  • Cool Car/Cool Bike: She employs a road motif with her Zonderised victims, who usually take the form of such vehicles.

Polonaise

Voiced by: Kōzō Shioya (JP)
Often taking the human form of a silent old train conductor, Polonaise is the most unassuming of the four Machine Kings.

  • Cool Train: Polonaise has a steam train for a head and favours a train motif in a majority of his victims.
  • Death Equals Redemption: He dies right after his purification, with a delighted smile on his face. Apparently both he and Primarda were Zondarians for too long...

     31 Primevals 

Pagliaccio

Voiced by: Konami Yoshida (JP)
A seemingly robotic clown who gives orders to the 31 Primevals. Oddly, neither GGG nor the J warriors take note of its presence.

Arm Primeval

Voiced by: Chafurin (JP)
One of the 31 Primevals, and the one that gets the most screentime.

  • The Dragon: To Pagliaccio and Heart Primeval. May also qualify as The Heavy, since he is the most active of the Primevals.
  • Gravity Master: He can create and control gravity shockwaves with surprising precision, to the point that he claims that they're "undodgeable".
  • Morphic Resonance: All of the forms he takes has a huge arm.
  • Red Right Hand: Almost literally: his right arm is huge.
  • Tin Tyrant: Briefly appears as one during a flashback to a fight between him and Soldato J.

    Spoilers 

The Z-Master

Voiced by: Kenichi Ogata, Konami Yoshida (JP)
The combined form of the 31 Primevals and the master program controlling every Zonder Metal and Zonder lifeform in the universe. It was originally created by the Purple Planet to eliminate stress and negativity. However, it decided that the best way to do so would be to absorb all life into itself. Not only does it have full knowledge of GGG's tactics and capabilities thanks to the efforts of the Primevals, but it is able to attach itself to Jupiter and drain THE POWER, making it all but invincible.

The King of Braves GaoGaiGar FINAL

     Debut GGG Members 

Renais Cardiff Shishioh

Voiced by: Yumi Kakazu (JP)

The daughter of Liger Shishioh and Guy's first cousin, she's a rogue agent of the high-tech criminal organizatin BioNet. When she was young, her mother was murdered by BioNet agents, and Renais was forcibly turned into a cyborg and made into one of their agents. She didn't take it so well, and turned on her captors. She was restrained and left in a BioNet facility to die until she was discovered and rescued by her Father. Liger was able to repair her though the use of a GS Ride added to her systems, but could not solve a critical flaw in her construction: a severe overheating that requires her to wear a cooling jacket. In order to get revenge for the death of her mother, Renais joined GGG France (Chasseur).

Kouryuu & Anryuu / Tenryuujin

Voiced by: Yukari Tamura (JP)

Kouryuu (Light Dragon) and Anryuu (Dark Dragon) are twin sister machines developed by GGG France with the same lineup as their four Dragon Brothers. Their alt-forms are a MASER truck and MLRS Launcher truck respectively. When the two sister' ympa-rates reach 100%, they are both able to combine their bodies via Symmetrical Docking and merge into Tenryuujin (Heavenly Dragon God).


  • Call-Back: Tenryuujin's "Dance of Light and Dark" is based on an attack Pasder used in Part 1, and she uses an attack called "Projectile/Bullet X Lite" to take out Puranus.
  • Combining Mecha: A more feminine example, although couldn't combine with the others because of their designs.
  • Guile Heroine: During Tenryuujin's "Dance of Light And Dark", she essentually waits in the shadows, taunting the opponent and misdirecting them until she can move in for the Finishing Move.
  • Half The Fembot She Used To Be: Puranus splits Tenryuujin straight down the center.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: By Puranus. Doesn't take, as Puranus stabs them straight down the center—naturally, Kouryuu and Anryuu are barely damaged as individuals, and Fusion Out in order to escape.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Tenryuujin acknowledges the massive amount of computational power that would be required to make her strongest attacks work.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: In a similar notion to their brothers, Kouryuu and Anryuu have rather polarising personalities, with Kouryuu being more of The Cutie Genki Girl whereas Anryuu is the more like a Dark Action Girl minus the bad personality mixed with a hint of tomboyishness.
  • Macross Missile Massacre: Anryuu carries an impressive 210 missiles.
  • Mega Manning: Guess where they got the data necessary to make her strongest attacks work properly. Come on, just guess.
  • Reflecting Laser: Tenryuujin's Dance of Light and Dark. Justified in that she provides the reflective surfaces.
  • Running Gag: Kouryuu is just like her brothers, Enryuu and Rairyuu. She's actually shown also having problems with a flight pack.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Anryuu's tomboy and Kouryuu's girly girl.

Papillion Noir

Voiced by: Ayako Kawasumi

A bioengineer who has been assigned to the Main Order Room in-between the events of GGG and FINAL. She's the Love Interest of Kousuke Entouji.

  • The Aloner: Her replicant is the only human one left when GGG arrives. The rest dissolved early on.
  • Back from the Dead: Subverted in that the Papillon encountered on repli-Earth is actually a replicant of the real Papillon. After the destruction of Pisa Sol, she fades away with the rest of its creations.
  • Cloning Blues: Her replicant suffers from this when meeting GGG for the first time on Repli-Earth. They snap her out of it almost immediately
  • Dark Skinned Cyan Head Has the appearance, but the not personality.
  • Hot-Blooded: Averted/Inverted like the rest of the new GGG members. In her case, she always speaks in a gentle, level tone.
  • Hot Scientist: She's a bioengineer.

Professor Ryosuke Takanohashi

One of the world's top 10 scientists, he has been assigned to the Main Order Room in-between the events of GGG and FINAL. He takes up the late Professor Leo Shishio's place

  • Wholesome Crossdresser: In one part of his introduction montage, He appears in an stereotypical hawaiian-girl Coconut-shell and grass-skirt outfit.

  • Canon Immigrant: She first appeared in episode 43.2 of GaoGaiGar Blockade Numbers.

Gimlet

Voiced by: Takeshi Aono

A member of Bionet.

    The 11 Planetary Masters of Sol 
A group of programs given material form, tasked with restoring the Trinary System upon the destruction of the Z-Master. However, they too exceeded their original programming and set about creating a new universe by draining this one's dark matter, causing it to begin to collapse. They are the main antagonists in FINAL.

In General

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/00_sol.jpg
  • Attack Its Weak Point: Their Loud G-Stone. While Pisa Sol can regenerate them after this, it seems that if it weren't for her, destroying this would destroy them for good. Pisa Sol can be considered one for the whole group, as destroying her took all the replica Sol Lords with her.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: They fail to take the power of courage into account when facing GGG, which ultimately leads to their downfall. In fact, it's implied they fear it because it allows the G-Stone to surpass the power of their Loud G-Stones.
  • In the Hood: With the exception of three members, all of them wear hooded cloaks.
  • Knight of Cerebus: By far the most powerful and efficient enemies of the entire series. To put it simply, every little victory GGG manages to get during FINAL is quickly followed by a huge defeat at their hands.
  • Theme Naming: Their names all begin with P. Most of them also have names based off planets.
  • Toyless Toyline Character: Despite most of them having a mecha form, none of them have ever had toys made of them, not even Palparepa who's got a ton of screen time.

Palparepa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/0117.jpg
Voiced by: Kiyoyuki Yanada (JP)

  • All There in the Manual: The full name of Palparepa's first mech is Palparepa PLUS according to an Eye Catch.
  • Caped Mecha: Palparepa PLUS has one. He loses it after becoming Palparepa Prajna with the cape turning into wings.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Guy. He performs "Chemical Fusion" with a giant ball-and-stick molecule to form his own mecha, Palparepa PLUS, which has its own Yin-Yang Bomb attack and can deploy various tools from its back. He's also the main attacking force of the Masters, and gets the most screentime.
  • Evil Knockoff: Well this is sorta subverted seeing as how GaoGaiGar wasn't even thought up when he and the other Sol Masters were made, making GaoGaiGar and GGG the Evil Knockoff to them! He also has an attack called God And Devil which functions the same as Hell and Heaven.
  • Eye Scream: Guy finishes him by ripping the Loud G-Stone out of his eye socket.
  • Famous Last Words: See below.
  • Graceful Loser: He truly believes that only the strongest is allowed to exist, so, when Pisa Sol is destroyed and they start to vanish, he peacefully remarks that as "the law of the material world", accepting the fact that they lost.
  • The Heavy: Especially early on in Final where he is responsible for moving the plot along while Palus Abel dictates things from the shadows.
  • Light Is Not Good: Has a white mecha and in confrontations with GaoGaiGar is represented by God. His mech is also named for the Sanskrit word for Wisdom or Insight, with Buddhist connotations.
    • Palparepa Prajna subverts this at first, being a dark green color but played straight after being affected by his own nano machine virus.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: He is fond of giving these to Guy. He later finds himself on the receiving end of one from Guy in the last episode.
  • This Cannot Be!: His reaction to Guy breaking free of his Chemical Bolts and GGG of his Paras Particles.
  • Villainous Breakdown: He has a huge one when battling Guy in Japan, even when Guy starts to overcome his power, he gets over it.

Palus Abel

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/0216.jpg
Voiced by: Sayuri Yamauchi (JP)

  • Big Bad: Of Final, while Palparepa does most of the heavy lifting among the Masters of Sol, Abel is the one leading them all.
  • The Chess Master: Abel fancies herself this, commanding the rest of the Sol Masters, despite having no mech form of her own and was able to trash Kaidou easily.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Kaidou.
  • Evil Knockoff: She's a younger clone of the real Abel.
  • Out-Gambitted: Thought she had things won when Pisa Sol replicated the Sol Masters several dozen times each...playing right into the heroes' hands by draining so much of Pisa Sol's energy she had to recharge, leaving her vulnerable to the Goldion Crusher.
    Abel: It appears you've lost, doesn't it?
    Soldato-J: You think so?
    Renais: I knew she wouldn't notice.
    (cue Oh, Crap! from Abel)
  • Smug Snake: Treats the battle with GGG as a game.
  • Theme Naming: Well, not really—'Paulus' is just 'little' in Latin, but her status as Big Bad and representative of the Red Planet suggests that her planet is Mars.

Pei La Cain

Voiced by: Koichi Chiba [Ep.04]note , Tamio Oouki [Ep.06 & 08] (JP)

  • Evil Counterpart: To Mamoru.
  • Evil Knockoff: Of the real Cain. Lampshaded by Mamoru.
    Mamoru: Just a mindless program based on Cain!
  • Mind Rape: Does this to Guy when Guy and Palparepa were clashing Hell and Heaven against God and Devil, causing Guy, who was matched with Palparepa at that moment, to lose concentration just long enough for him to lose the fight.
  • Theme Naming: The Wiki believes his name is meant to evoke 'Gaia' or 'Terra', making him the master representing Earth.

Pia Decem

  • Co Dragon: With Pillnus.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Soldato J. He pilots a massive flying ship, and can perform Giga Fusion to merge with it into a truly enormous mechanoid. He is also very fast.
  • Grim Reaper
  • Sinister Scythe
  • Vader Breath: Has no dialogue, except for this. (In fact, when you play his dialogue in SRW Alpha 3, this is all you get.)
  • Theme Naming: Probably named for "Planet X"/the hypothetical tenth planet, but his death theme is more reminiscent of Pluto.

Pillnus

Pisa Sol

  • Evil Counterpart: To Mikoto. Although very passive, she enables her entire team to fight. Also to Goldymarg—or rather, her Fusion with the Regeneration Machine is the Evil Counterpart to the Goldion Crusher, which is connected to both Goldymarg and Mikoto; of course, Pisa Sol's sun makes light become matter, rather than the other way around.
  • Healing Hands
  • Light Is Not Good: Is the Sol Master representing the sun.
  • Load-Bearing Boss: What else would you call someone who, when defeated, causes the UNIVERSE to implode?!
  • Theme Naming: Named for the sun, Sol.

Percurio, P-Vater, Polturn, Puranus & Ptulone

  • Blow You Away: Ptulone.
  • Chainsaw Evil: P-Vater.
  • Designated Fembot Fight: Puranus (against TenRyuJin).
  • Dual Wielding: Polturn.
  • Evil Counterparts:
    • P-Vater: ChoRyuJin, presumably; while their abilities aren't really mirrors, ChoRyuJin was the first to be powered up by the power of The Power, which of course comes from Jupiter. P-Vater's shockwave missile and chainsaw arms might be Evil Counterparts to the Eraserhead and ChoRyuJin's extendable arms/tonfas, respectively.
    • Polturn: Volfogg, both stealthy, purple ninjas with Wolf themes that Dual Wield blades; both capable of interfacing with computer systems (Volfogg for his information-gathering role, Polturn as The Cracker.)
    • Ptulone: GekiRyuJin, both wield air and electromagnetism. If Ptulone is meant to evoke Neptune, it's an appropriate counterpart since Neptune is so closely associated with storms.
    • Puranus: TenRyuJin, both wield lasers and missiles; also, Uranus was the god of the sky, and TenRyuJin is the heavenly dragon god(dess).
    • Percurio: Mic Sounders. He's the Swing musician to Mic's rocker, and flies around on his own stage, the "BluBalloon". His horn-like head and tapered tip also bring to mind a gramophone to Mic's CD player.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Polturn.
  • Macross Missile Massacre: Puranus.
  • Musical Assassin: Percurio.
  • Ninja: Polturn.
  • Shields Are Useless: Puranus finds this out the hard way.
  • The Brute: P-Vater, before turning into a mech is visibly larger than the rest of the Sol Masters are. While his mecha form isn't very large compared to the others', its design suggests a certain amount of heft and a strong 'construction vehicle' theme.
  • The Cracker: Polturn.
  • Theme Naming:
    • Percurio: Mercury.
    • P-Vater: Jupiter (IVPITER).
    • Polturn: Saturn.
    • Puranus: Uranus.
    • Ptulone: Neptune, for all that he sounds like he should be Pluto, at least according to The Wiki.


Hakaiou: GaoGaiGar VS. Betterman

     New Generation GGG Members 

Mamoru Amami / Latio [Time Skip]

Voiced by: Maiko Itou (JP, Drama CD)

  • Older Than They Look: As Mamoru enters his twenties, he noticed his Ma'am Shock greeting towards Guy back when he was a kid is coming back to haunt him in an ironic manner—people kept mistaking him as a kid (or at most, a teenager); and Mamoru's voice not changing only makes it worse.

Ikumi Kaidou / Arma [Time Skip]

Hana Hatsuno [Time Skip]

Voiced by: Konami Yoshida (JP, Drama CD)

Sueo "Ushii" Ushiyama [Time Skip]

Alouette

A Teen Genius who was once kidnapped by Bionet in her childhood. She joins GGG as their programmer and operator.
  • Brought Down to Normal: She lost her memories and her intelligence during the battle with Bionet allowing her to live as a normal girl, at least until she regain her memories by Hakaiou.
  • The Cameo: She has three in FINAL:
    • In episode 2, she can seen from the back when the coup d'etat of 3G is announced.
    • In the beginning of episode 5, she is seen with Mikoto riding Gundober.
    • In episode 8, she appears in the upper-left corner with her mom when Mamoru's parents are shown.
  • Child Prodigy: She is the one who created the Final Fusion program for GaoFighGar; and was only 5 years old when she achieved it. She aged on to Teen Genius by the time she’s recruited to the new generation GGG.
  • Easy Amnesia: A blow to the head was all it takes to erase her memories.
  • Rescue Romance: Falls for Kaidou after he saves her from a Bionet agent.

     New Generation GGG Mecha 

Porc-Auto / Big Porc-Auto

A robot designed to help Renais on her missions as a part of Chasseur. His Ai was based on Eric "Gentleman" Fowler, Renais's partner who was killed in battle.
  • Back from the Dead: Porc-Auto was destroyed in a mission prior to the events of FINAL but a back up of his AI was saved by Professor Liger.
  • Expy: He is one to Volfogg. He can even combine with two robots similar to the Gunmachines to become Big Porc-Auto.
  • The Cameo: He or a car that looks like him shows up in the second episode of FINAL being driven by Renais.

Getsuryuu and Nichiryuu

Getsuryuu (Moon Dragon) and Nichiryuu (Sun Dragon) are twin sister robots made by GGG Germany. Unlike their older siblings they don't seem to get along very well. Their combined form is Seiryuujin.
  • Berserk Button: For the love of all that is good, do not hurt Shouryuu!
  • Fusion Dance: They can merge together to become Seiryuujin. Later on they can also merge with Shouryuu becoming ShoSeiryuujin. This gets Turned Up to Eleven later still when, after freeing Kouryuu and Anryuu from the control of Triple Zero, the four Brave Machines' SympaRate exceeds 200 percent, and they perform the same Miraculous Symmetrical Docking used by their brother Braves, becoming Kiryuujin (Kouryuu and Nichiryuu) and Shinryuujin (Anryuu and Getsuryuu). In the same chapter, the insanity gets cranked up even further still when the Bettermen fuse to ShinRyuuJin's armor and create Musou Shinryuujin.
  • Running Gag: Just like Enryuu, Rairyuu and Anryuu before her, Nichiryuu inherits their inability to land properly.
  • Sibling Rivalry: The two have one due to being sent on separate missions from each other. This prevents them from developing a complete SympaRate needed to perform Symmetrical Docking.

Shouryuu

     Bettermen (Somniums) 

In General:

  • Early-Bird Cameo: They first appeared in the Project Z trailer.
  • Face Framed in Shadow: All of them except for Lamia.
  • Fusion Dance: During the battle against Hakaiou, the seven Betterman combined themselves into one form called Amalgam Betterman and what Akamatsu dubs Bettermen.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: They all share the same type of eyes: Red sclera and white pupils.

Lamia

Rice

Sara

Gajumaru

Yewya

Rakan

     Hakaiou Apostles 
The beings that will turn all living things into light. They are the main antagonists of Hakaiou: GaoGaiGar vs. Betterman.
  • The Assimilator: Corrupted the entirety of GGG (and Soldato J) with the exception of Guy.
  • And I Must Scream: They are completely aware of their actions but are being forced to obey the cosmic laws and destroy humanity.
  • Big Bad: Of Hakaiou: GaoGaiGar vs. Betterman.
  • Demonic Possession: Takes over Genesic GaoGaiGar to use as its body.
  • Expy: An in-universe example as noted by the main cast. The Hakaiou Apostles and the Zero Robos are similar to the Zonderians and Zonder robos.
  • I Have Many Names: Originally it was known as Oath Over Omega, then dubbed Triple Zero by GGG and finally was called Hakaiou by everyone when it appears over Jupiter.
    • It doesn't help that Hakaiou has multiple meanings due to the kanji used. 覇界王 mean supreme, world, and king respectively. The English translation for the novel and manga uses Overlord before it was changed to King of Ruin. And then there's the completely untranslatable spoken-language element to it all: 覇界王 is, in spoken language, a perfect homonym for 破壊王, or "King of Destruction", which is basically their true goal and calls back to FINAL and the various reveals about Genesic GaoGaiGar's intended role (and all the talk of "creation vs. destruction" from the Sol Masters).
  • The Man Behind the Man: Leo speculates that it influenced the Z-Master into attacking Earth.
  • The Reveal: It is the source of The POWER and the origin of the universe.
  • Wham Shot: It's the being seen at the end of the Project Z trailer.
    • Done at the end of the third manga chapter of Hakaiou: GaoGaiGar vs. Betterman.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: They wish to save the universe by destroying humanity who they view as a threat.
