    Ganba Team 

Kotaro Kirigakure

Voiced by: Ai Orikasa

The defacto-leader of the Ganba Team, taking on the identity of "Yellow Ganba." He pilots the Go Tiger and is the main pilot of Ganbaruger, and pilots it alone once Rikiya and Yosuke get new robots.

  • Bratty Half-Pint: To say he is an obnoxious little bugger would be an understatement.
  • Super Speed: His Yellow Ganba suit gives him the ability to move with blinding quickness.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: He tends to be this with Chinatsu.

Rikiya Ryuzaki

Voiced by: Bin Shimada

An aspiring baseball player taking on the mantle of "Red Ganba." He pilots the King Elephant and later Revolger.

  • Big Brother Instinct: He is very protective of his little brother Tetsuya, who ends up being the main force to get him out of his Dai-Makai-induced brainwashing.
  • The Big Guy: He is the guy with super strength, after all.
  • Ship Tease: With Katsura.

Yosuke Kazamatsuri

Voiced by: Omi Minami

A somewhat nerdy young boy taking on the role of "Blue Ganba." He pilots the Mach Eagle and later Gekiryuger.

  • Everyone Can See It: His crush on Yurika is known to everybody but her.
  • My Beloved Smother: His mother pushes a lot of studying on him, and that's not even going to into forcing him to take violin lessons.
  • The Power of Love: If it weren't for Yurika, he would not have been of any help when against the mochizuki Makaijuu.
  • The Smart Guy: He's usually the first one to figure out how any of the mechanics work. He also has to study a lot thanks to his mother.


Toubei Kirigakure

Voiced by: Kenichi Ogata

Kotaro's father who teaches ninjutsu. He gets turned into a dog in the first episode, forcing him pretend to be his own family's new pet, "Gonzales."

Chinatsu Yuuki

Voiced by: Yuri Shiratori

Kotaro's Childhood Friend who's always looking for a scoop.

  • Loves My Alter Ego: Kind of; she fights with Kotaro, but shamelessly fangirls over Yellow Ganba (and the Ganba Team in general).
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: With Kotaro, with whom she argues with a lot.

Katsura Takeda

Voiced by: Rika Fukami

The daughter of the defense force's general and member of the class committee alongside Rikiya.

  • Daddy's Girl: She is very close to her "papa", which probably influenced her mostly negative opinion of the Ganba Team.
  • Depending on the Writer: Her relationship with Chinatsu (and by extention Yurika) can vary between the episodes; sometimes, they're all friends, other times, Katsura is all stuck up and mocking towards Chinatsu, to the latter's anger.
  • Loves My Alter Ego: She's the only one of the three designated love interests that doesn't have this; she likely has a higher opinion of Rikiya than she does for any member of the Ganba Team.
  • Ship Tease: With Rikiya. Her status as a love interest is probably the least obvious of the 3 (contrasting Yurika, who is the most obvious), but nonetheless, she and Rikiya are shown to be quite close during the ending.

Yurika Komaki

Voiced by: Ikue Otani

Chinatsu's friend and the object of Yosuke's affection.

  • Loves My Alter Ego: She fell for Blue Ganba after he rescued her, unaware that he and Yosuke are the same. This being Yosuke, hearing this causes him to hastily decided it doesn't matter if he becomes a dog, much to Kotaro and Rikiya's dismay.
  • Oblivious to Love: She just thinks of Yosuke as a friend, without the slightest hint of noticing that he might feel differently.
  • Official Couple: Hinted at in the ending, after she finds out that Yosuke and Blue Ganba are one and the same.

General Takeda

The head of the defense force and Katsura's father. He previous appeared in Zettai Muteki Raijin-Oh.

  • Doting Parent: Towards Katsura.
  • Recurring Character: As noted above, he's the only character other than Eldoran to appear in all entries of the franchise. We actually see him more here than in Raijin-Oh, likely because this town is where he lives.


Voiced by: Bin Shimada

The same guardian of Earth who created the Earth Defense Class. He charges the battle with the Dai-Makai to the Ganba Team whilst he holds by Gokuark from returning.



Yaminorius III

Voiced by: Kazuyuki Sogabe, Eiji Sekiguchi (Sunrise Eiyuutan series)

A servant of Gokuark who works to wreak havoc on the human world until his master can be freed.

  • The Dragon: He is Gokuark's top servant.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Gokuark probably would've ended up winning at the halfway point in the series if Yaminorius wasn't so overeager to help, that he ended up distracting his master long enough for the Ganba Team to finish him.


Voiced by: Masaharu Sato

A king of the Dai-Makai who was released for short time before being resealed by Eldoran, but he sends out his servant in hopes of being free once again.

  • Back from the Dead: He is defeated halfway through the series through a combination of the Revoluger's Last Fire and Gekiryuger's Dragon Thunder Flash, but is brought back near the end.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: With his brothers. He seems to be primary Big Bad of the series, though, as he is more active.


Voiced by: Ken Yamaguchi

Another king of the Dai-Makai sealed away.


Voiced by: Bin Shimada

The third king of the Dai-Makai sealed away.
