The Characters of God Mars!
Takeru Myoujin aka Mars
- Voiced by: Yuu Mizushima
- Ace Pilot: Notably not only is he an ace in Gaia/Godmars, he's also a great Cosmo Crusher fighter pilot as well.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: In the original Mars manga, Takeru/Mars was a red head. In the anime, He has dark hair.
- Adaptation Name Change: Subverted. While he's still refered to as Mars by the Gishin forces. Mars was given the earth name Takeru.
- But Now I Must Go: Final episode, with Roze.
- Chew Toy: Poor Takeru is a terrific example. In each episode Emperor Zuul sends out assassin after assassin to kill him and he's beaten, burned, frozen, zapped, electrocuted, asphyxiated to within a centimeter of his life, at which point the title robot arrives to save him. In the third and final arc of the 64 episode series, he's even stuck with a psionic device which drains part of his Life Force if he attempts to use his powers. It doesn't get much worse than that. Oh and, he knows that, if he does die, the super-bomb in his guardian robot will blow up the planet. YEOWCH.
- Combined Energy Attack: Godmars's final attack on Zul in the final episode (referred to in Super Robot Wars Z2: Saisei-hen as Super Final Godmars).Takeru: Zuul! I'll show you everyone's anger! This is the final fight! I'll put everything on the line!
(God Mars turns golden while church bells ring in the background.)
(God Mars summons the Mars Flash.)
Takeru: FINAL GODMARS!
- Finishing Move: FINAL GODMARS! Can pretty much be summed up as a powerful slash with the Mars Flash. A lot of the time, though, it is preceeded with Godmars using God Fire to internally damage the enemy mech (usually immobilizing them), which is how it is presented in Super Robot Wars Z2.
- Human Alien
- Moses in the Bulrushes
- Nice Guy
- Psychic Powers
- Spider-Sense: Due to his Psychic Powers, Takeru can detect incoming danger and identify any assassins disguised as humans.

- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: When squaring off against Takeru and Godmars in the climactic fights within the series.
- Back from the Dead: In the final episode, the Gestalts combine to form another Emperor Zuul. Or something.
- Big Bad
- Boss Rush: His general strategy in both Z2 games.
- In Hakai-hen, when you fight him in Stage 46, he brings along several bosses you've beaten already, including Regulus Alphas, Knight-Class Vajra, Heterodynes and Rhino-DAMONS as well as two clones of himself. Then you have to fight the real one. There a reason that Stage is That One Level of Hakai-hen.
- Stage 56 of the IF route in Saisei-hen takes this Up to Eleven. First you have to fight a Crap-load of Invader, Zeravire, Heterodyne, Mechanical Beast and Mobile Doll bosses. Then you have to take on Emperor Zul and Emperor Muge along with a bunch of their lackeys, including TWO MOON-WILLS, plus the Cathedral Terra Lazengann (which you just spent half of the last stage beating already). THEN, once all that is over, you go inside the Catheral Terra where you have to fight Anti-Spiral Gurren Lagann.
- Everyone Hates Hades: Turns out the real Zuul is the ruler of the afterlife and he causes the dead to suffer.
- Galactic Conqueror
- God of Evil
- Physical God
- Puppeteer Parasite: The true form of Emperor Zuul according to Episode #25.(Zuul is defeated by God Mars.)
Emperor Zuul: Mars! I can't die! I won't!
Emperor Zuul: My cells are all over the universe! Somewhere out there, I will be reborn!
Empreor Zuul: Bwahahahaha! Emperor Zuul of Gishin is only a shell occupied by one of my cells!
- Spell My Name with an "S": Emperor Zuul/Zul/Zule/Zure, depending on the source.
- Voiced by: Yūji Mitsuya
- Brainwashed and Crazy: By Emperor Zuul
- Cain and Abel: The Cain to Takeru's Abel.
- Fate Worse than Death: Marg's soul is tortured by Zul after his death.
- Human Alien
- Redemption Equals Death
- Stupid Sacrifice: In the TV series. No matter how much you wanna protect your brother, the attempt that you made to block a beam cannon coming out from a super mecha using just your physical body was just a really bad, bad, idea. And by the way... your brother's sitting inside a mecha.

- Composite Character: In Super Robot Wars Z2: Saisei-hen, Metal of the Gestalt takes the roles of the other five from the TV series (Kicker, Snapper, Needle, Knuckle & Odin).
- Stating the Simple Solution: In the Saint-ism Saisei-Hen LPDr. Hell: You can come out now.
Gestalt: Your obsession with Photon Power is amusing.
Dr. Hell: This King of Hell isnt enough to fight the Baal with only with Photon Power can we survive!
Sayuri: Do you think those three clowns will even succeed?
Dr. Hell: They will live up to my expectations! I have high hopes for Baron Ashura.
Gestalt: And why the elaborate call for a showdown? If you wanted the Photon Power so badly, you couldve taken the Photon Labs while ZEXIS were dealing with Insalaum!
Dr. Hell: You fools could never hope to understand my plans!
Sayuri: Perhaps. In any case good luck (not!) for the battle.
Gestalt: You might need it more than you think! Mwahaha!
