Also Featured: Everywhere else.

Pilot of Getter-2, more intelligent and calm than Ryoma, but in many continuities also even crazier than him.

  • Adaptational Heroism: He's kind of a dick in the original anime, but is mostly a moody loner. This is in sharp contrast to the manga, where he's a homicidal psychopath and terrorist.
  • Anti-Hero: Type V. Eventually, he softens up slightly to a Type IV.
    • Type II in the 70s anime version.
    • Type III in Armageddon.
  • Axe-Crazy: Manages to pull out this and The Stoic at the same time.
  • Badass Longcoat: In Ah and Hien.
  • Bad Boss: In his first appearance of the manga, he brutally kills his minions, sometimes for no reason at all. He does get better but still has some tendencies that make others fear him.
  • Character Development: Grows significantly over the course of the series. In Getter Robo Go he even gets engaged.
  • Deadpan Snarker: on occasion, he tends to be the most prone of this among the three pilots. Such as this gem from Armageddon:
    Ryoma: Hayato! What was that!?
    Hayato: (calmly reloading gun) It had big claws and a long tail, so I'd say it was a monster.
  • For the Evulz: In original manga he starts a revolution in his school, takes control of one of it's buildings and plots to kill Japan's prime minister out of boredom. In New he leads terrorists to satisfy his sadistic thirst of killing.
  • Femme Fatalons: In his first appearance.
  • Freudian Trio: Ego to Ryoma’s Id.
  • Gorn: In the original manga and New he cuts out a guy’s eyes, ears and tongue with his fingernails.
  • Hot Blooded Sideburns: however he doesn't have them in the 70s anime adaption, the crossovers, or Getter Robo Devolution.
  • Japanese Delinquents: In the original manga, he's the leader of a gang of them.
  • The Lancer: For Ryoma
  • Older and Wiser: In Armageddon, Shin vs Neo and manga continuity starting from Go.
  • Omniscient Morality License: Pulls it out few times to justify more amoral actions against the enemies. Suprisingly doesn’t use it in Go manga, when Go calls him on sacrificing people’s lives to find out how neutralize Rando’s nuclear devices.
    Hayato: Don’t worry. I’ll ask them to forgive me when I see them in hell.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: He's a strong believer in this philosophy.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: In the showdown with Shin Dragon in Armageddon, he's kicking ass in a giant robot while wearing a pink work shirt. And it works.
  • Sink-or-Swim Mentor: To Go during the start of, well, Go, sending powerful assassins after him to see if he's worth recruiting. It's even implied he has done this to others, who failed the test.
  • The Smart Guy: Smartest of Getter Power Trio.
  • The Stoic: Probably one person who managed to be stoic and Axe-Crazy at the same time.
    • Not So Stoic: In original manga he starts panicking at the first encounter with dinosaurs, to the point of peeing himself and pass out after piloting Getter for the first time. In New, after helping defeats Oni in Getter for the first time he drops his stoic persona and tries to destroy Satome Research Lab, while grinning like a maniac.
  • Slasher Smile: Oh so very often, but Go manga version really takes the cake, probably outclassing even New incarnation.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky
  • Tear Off Your Face: His introduction in the original manga, Hayato punishes a would-be deserter with this. A second guy just loses his eyes, ears, and nose.
  • Terrorists Without a Cause: In New he leads a terrorist cell. At one point of his henchmen calls him on the fact he don’t give a damn about their cause and uses them as his personal tool to kill people.
    • This is actually a Setting Update of the original manga, wherein he was the leader of one of 1970s Japan's notoriously violent campus radical groups.
  • Yakuza: In the 90s he became a gangster instead of a terrorist as the only terrorists making the news in Japan at the time were the Aum Shinrikyo cultists, which wouldn't suit his personality very well.

Musashi Tomoe

First Apperance: Getter Robo anime
Also Featured: Getter Robo manga, Shin Vs Neo, Armageddon
Voiced By: Toku Nishio (classic anime), Shinpachi Tsuji (Armageddon), Yasuhiko Kawazu (Daikessen), Kiyoyuki Yanada (Shin Vs Neo), Steve Sanders (Armageddon dub)

Young and idealistic judo fighter with a big heart, pilots Getter-3.

  • Gonk: Not that cartoonishly ugly, just... plainer compared to others.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In every continuity.
  • They Killed Kenny: Humorously, there's a bit of a running gag involving him dying in some way, due to the his Heroic Sacrifice in the original manga, to the point where virtually all reboot continuities and games featuring him will kill him off. The only time it's possible to save him will involve secrets (and these routes are non-Canon as far as story goes).
  • Took a Level in Badass: From plucky comic relief, to taking on the dinosaur empire solo in the original Getter Robo, to leading the Getter Crusaders in Ark.
  • Parental Substitute: In Armageddon. After Michiru and Saotome's deaths and Ryoma's imprisonment, Musashi takes Genki in. Too bad he also dies soon afterwards, so Benkei (who's his old friend in this Alternate Universe) raises Genki... as Kei.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: In manga.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Early in the classic anime he was terrified of reptiles, making more difficult for the Getter team to fight the Mechasaurus. Then he learned to overcome his fear after Hayato locked him up in a room filled with snakes and frogs.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Manga version clearly thinks he is in Lighter and Softer classic anime world, and not Darker and Edgier world of manga, much to annoyance of his teammates.

  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: Invoked In the end he wants to die a warrior's death in a fight with Getter Robo, but is denied that chance by Demons, who shoots him in the back. Even Ryoma is pissed about it.
  • Evil Overlord: More misguided than "Evil", since he does care about his own people and wants revenge on humanity for stealing the dinosaur's land. But he still counts as this, since he wants to kill all of humankind.
  • Large Ham: Most of times he doesn't speak, he yells.
  • Obviously Evil: Zigzagged. Despite his menacing appearance, he's just fighting for his own race's survival.

Yura the Great

The true leader of the dinosaur empire in the anime.

Emperor Burai

Earth doesn't belong to dinosaurs. It belongs to demons!
Getter Robo manga.

First Apperance: Getter Robo manga
Also Featured: Getter Robo anime, Getter Robo G anime and manga.
Voiced By: Joji Yanami (classic anime), Hisao Egawa (Daikessen)

Leader Of Hundred Demons Empire, an empire of horned demonic cyborgs.

  • Asshole Victim: When he gets killed, both at the end of Getter Robo G, and at the end of Shin Getter Robo after he's brought back from the dead, Burai was such a despicable character that he really deserved what was coming to him and nobody mourns for him.
  • Big Bad: Of Getter Robo G.
  • Back from the Dead: in the Shin Getter manga, time-travelling Insects from the Getter Emperor's time found the drifting hulk of the Hundred Demon Empire vessel and restored Burai to life, in hopes that he would destroy Getter and prevent the Getter Emperor from ever existing.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Takes pride in all the evil things he does.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Unlike Emperor Gore, who was a misguided Well-Intentioned Extremist simply looking out for his people, Burai is just a power-hungry, sadistic tyrant with zero noble intentions.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Towards Gore.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Burai was initially just a student coming along on an arctic exploration, who was sent into the crashed remains of an Alien ship specifically because he was expendable. The core of the ship was still active and modified him into the demonic creature we all know, and he used the repaired ship and the Arctic team to found the Hundred Demon Empire.
  • Hate Sink: Arguably one of the most evil villains in the series, second only to Professor Lando.
  • Playing Both Sides: Starting all out war between Demon Empire, Dinosaur Empire and Getter Team to force Gore into making final, desperate attack - either Getter or Dinosaur Empire would be defeated, leaving him with only one enemy or the two would weaken each other.
  • The Sociopath: While Gore at-least cared about his people, Burai only sees those around him as pawns to benefit him.
  • Time Travel: As confirmed in the Shin Getter Robo manga, the crashed ship that transformed Burai was part of a fleet fighting a losing battle against the Getter Emperor, something that was implied in the original chapter but not confirmed as the exact details had likely not been conceptualized.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Has no problem enslaving children.

The Japanese team managed to escape, thanks to Hayato, who then, together with Doctor Tachibana, created a secret organization to thwart his plans.

Mr. Cohen and Mr. Stinger

First Appearances: Getter Robo Armageddon
Voiced By: Daisuke Gori (Cohen, Armageddon anime), Kenta Miyake (Cohen, Armageddon in Super Robot Wars), Banjo Ginga (Stinger, in Majuu Sensen), Masashi Hirose (Stinger)
  • Adaptational Dye Job: Cohen originally had white hair in Majuu Sensen, before it was changed to blonde in Armageddon. Also Stinger originally had normal Beige skin in Majuu Sensen, before being changed to blue in Armageddon.
  • Adaptational Name Change: In Majuu Sensen, Cohen was originally named Dr. Shaft, and Stinger was called Dr. Baruvia.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Stinger has blue skin for some reason.
    • In Majuu Sensen, it's implied Stinger's body is made of rock.
  • Body Horror: Because Cohen and Stinger are controlled by the Invaders, they have the ability to puke out alien slime, and then there is their giant monster form in the final episode.
  • Breath Weapon: The third episode has Cohen puking Invader slime.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate : Of Armageddon.
  • Canon Foreigner: Neither of them appear in the Getter Robo manga.
  • Canon Immigrant: Cohen and Stinger both originally appeared in another series by Ken Ishikawa called Majuu Sensen, where they also went by different names (see above).
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: Stinger, who is always seen with a creepy grin.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Their final form.
  • Evil Counterparts: When piloting Metal Beast Getter G, Cohen is opposite Benkei and Stinger is opposite to Hayato.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Cohen has a very deep voice.
  • Faux Affably Evil: They are both well-mannered and polite, however that doesn't change the fact that they are genocidal monsters.
  • Gonk: Both of them have a very inhuman like design.
  • Mook Maker: The third episode has Cohen puking Invader slime and in the finale a whole armada of Elite Mooks come from him.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Being The Man Behind the Man aside, they play second fiddle to Saotome most of the time in Armageddon...Then they begin hurling moons, planets, black holes and eventually an Invader Dimension at Earth and all in the final two episodes!
  • Not So Stoic: Cohen.
  • Obviously Evil: Seriously, who in their right mind would trust two guys whom both have such an unusual appearance?
  • One-Winged Angel: Their King of Invaders form.
  • The Other Darrin: Cohen is voiced by Kenta Miyake for his appearance in Saisei-Hen since Gouri died before the game was made.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Both of then rarely make any other expreson other then a Psychotic Smirk.
  • Scary Black Man: It isn't being angry that makes Cohen scary. Aside from hosting Invaders it is his entire mannerisms that make him scary.
    • Even more-so in Majuu Sensen, where he has the ability to reproduce kids from his own body.
  • The Man Behind the Man: The ones that most likely infected Saotome and Michiru.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: Their role for much of the series.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: No one ever takes any notice of Stinger's blue skin and polygonal face.
  • Villain Team-Up: In Super Robot Wars Z2: Saisei-Hen, the Anti-Spirals cooperate with the Invaders because the Invaders use Getter Rays incorrectly. Rather than simply inundating themselves in the Getter and allowing evolution to take its course, they forcibly "evolve" themselves. To the Anti-Spirals, the Invaders are not "evolving" so much as they are simply growing bigger and more primal. After all, Stinger and Cohen are the only examples of sapient Invaders after Saotome kicked the bucket.\\ "Correct" evolution is meant to be a slow process that increases not power and size (like in the case of Invaders), but all the attributes of a living thing. The Invaders do not contribute to Spiral Nemesis because they have no souls and therefore their rapid evolution does not increase entropy as much as a Spiral's would.
    Anti-Spiral himself states that regardless of how much the Invaders evolve, they are mindless beasts and therefore can be easily dealt with at the moment of his choosing.

     Other Characters 

Michiru Saotome

Voiced by: Rihoko Yoshida (original series), Miki Nagasawa (Armageddon), Yukiko Minnaka (Daikessen), Takako Honda (New), Jessica Hedrick (Armageddon dub), Wendee Lee (New dub)

  • Took a Level in Badass:
    • The 70's anime version did actually join in battles, to the point she flew the Liger machine in Getter G!
    • The New version is a deadpan snarker hot scientist. Awesome!

Lady Raikou Minamoto

Voiced by: Romi Park (Japanese), Mona Marshall (English)

First Apperance: 'New Getter Robo
  • Expy: A stretch, but she would be one to Kei Kuruma from Armageddon, since both are gender flips of male characters (Genki Saotome for Kei, and Raikou herself to Raikou... himself?).

Genki Saotome

  • Creepy Child: Only in Armageddon. But the kid's creepiness in that continuity is enough for the whole franchise.
  • Hollywood Autism: In the first episode of Armageddom Benkei makes a offhaned referans to Genki having autism. which was seemingly brought on by Michiru's death. Which falls head first into this trope.
  • Raised as the Opposite Gender: Again, only in Armageddon.
  • She Is All Grown Up: In Armageddon... because Genki not only is a girl there, but she is Kei.

Professor Saotome

Voiced by: Kousei Tomita (original series, Shin vs Neo), Mugihito (Armageddon), Masaharu Sato (Daikessen), Kinryuu Arimoto (New), John Paul Shephard (Armageddon dub), Abe Lasser (New dub)

  • Back from the Dead: He is killed by Hayato at the beginning of Armageddon, but is resurrected by the invaders.
  • Disappears into Light: His fate in the manga, when the Saotome lab is enveloped in a massive wave of Getter Rays from the Shin Dragon.
  • Dying as Yourself: One way to interpret his death in Armageddon.
  • Face–Heel Turn: He becomes one of the main antagonists in Armageddon after being turned into one of the invaders.
  • Good All Along: The Armageddon version. It seems he pulled a monster of a plan that went wrong in the third episode and it got delayed.
  • Jerk With Aheart Of Gold: He's a stern, grumpy, and at times, ruthless, old man, but he still ultimately has the best interests of Earth in mind, and he genuinely cares about his kids.
  • Made of Iron: In most continuities but in the first three episodes of Armageddon he just keeps seemingly dying but still lives. Unless Inagawa had him intentionally infected himself with Invaders, like Cohen and Stinger, and he was faking pain.
  • Mad Scientist: In Armageddon. Then again, it's Armageddon.
    • Not that he doesn't have his moments in manga and New, but there he is on good guy's side.
    • He goes off the deep end in the Shin Getter Robo manga, where he spends several weeks exposing himself to high levels of Getter Rays while trying to excavate the metamorphosing remains of the Getter G.
  • Taking You with Me: In Armageddon, to the Invader Parasite that's trying to flee from his body when he gets hit with the Stoner Sunshine.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: In Saisei-Hen, which was given to him by Apollo
    Apollo(nius): "Ba'al... you really are beasts. You who cannot fathom the love and compassion of Man do not deserve to exist beneath the Sun. Ba'al, the Mechanical Angel Aquarion hereby refutes your existence! Behold! The power of mankind... and the power of life!"

Akira

Appears in: Getter Robo Daikessen

A playable protagonist who exclusively appears in Getter Robo Daikessen.

The Getter

Appears in: Entire series

The Getter Rays themselves are all but outright stated to collectively be an enormous, reality-spanning Eldritch Abomination seeking either a race that can properly master its use, or a race that it can eventually overtake to create universe-devouring death knights such as its ultimate embodiment seen in Armageddon, the Getter Emperor. For this reason it can be seen as the -true- Big Bad of the entire franchise, even if it's not evil so much as it has a severe case of Blue and Orange Morality.

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: More like Robotic Personification, but each Getter Machine acts as this to the Getter in one way or another. It's most obvious with the Shin Getter and the Getter Emperor. The Getter Rays themselves are the very incarnation of life and evolution, though it's decidedly not an anthropomorphic entity in any way.
  • Ax-Crazy: Judging by how it acts through the Shin Getter and ESPECIALLY when it takes over Ryoma, it is most certainly this.
  • Big Bad: Pretty much the whole reason most of the other villains are doing what they're doing is to stop the Getter from growing too strong and destroying them.
    • Greater-Scope Villain: Though it itself doesn't usually take the villain reins directly in most series, with the other villainous factions acting to move the plot against the Getter Team.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Owing to it being a very good example of an Eldritch Abomination, despite all the terrible things it does it can't really be considered 'evil' by our definiton. It simply does what's natural to it, evolving and devouring whatever doesn't make the cut. Really, it makes sense considering that it's the embodiment of evolution and life; that's much like how it goes in real life.
  • Demonic Possession: To the Shin Getter, as it contains so much Getter Rays that it's practically alive itself, hence its crazy eyes and mannerisms when piloted. It does this to pilots as well, most notably Ryoma in New Getter Robo at the end of the series.
  • Eldritch Abomination: The biggest and baddest one in the franchise, responsible for the creation of all other abominations such as the Invaders, the initial form of the Shin Dragon in Armageddon and the Emperor.
  • Emerald Power
  • Evil Versus Oblivion: Most of the other villains in the franchise are the evil versus the Getter's oblivion.
  • Mysterious Backer: The reason Dr. Saotome and the heroes are able to do much of anything.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Ironically enough given that it's life itself, if allowed to progress uncontrolled it will devour the entire universe as the Getter Emperor and likely go on to destroy other universes in the Getter multiverse as well.
  • One-Winged Angel: The Getter Emperor is the ultimate form of this to all the other Getter Machines, and the closest the Getter entity itself gets to a 'true form', physically speaking. The Emperor itself does this through its own evolution, going from the size of a planet to an abomination the size of a galaxy that can kill the God of the universe in a single punch.
  • Sentient Cosmic Force
  • Walking Spoiler: For a certain value of "walking", but even discussing the Getter's potential character attributes without spoiling nearly everything about the central conflict of the franchise's meta-narrative is the next thing to impossible.
