This is the list of characters from Gundam: Reconguista in G. Warning, unmarked spoilers below.
- Ace Pilot: The things that he does with the G-Self are often seen as physically impossible by others.
- Barrier Warrior: The primary gimmick that differentiates the G-Self from standard mobile suits is its 'photon armor', essentially a sculptable, short-duration, full-body beam shield. It's a highly versatile weapon - it can block attacks, expand to disintegrate enemy mobile suits that get too close, or even be fired like a Gundam-shaped beam blast - and Bellri makes quite a bit of use of it.
- Blue Blood: He's the son of a high-ranking Capital official and one of the heirs to the Rayhunton family.
- Cute and Psycho: Not him, but his machine. The G-Self was deliberately engineered in-universe to look cute and child-friendly, but is a high-performance death-machine with a brutal Superpowered Evil Side.
- The Dulcinea Effect: For Aida. Shown in episode two, when the pilots are raiding the Capital, where his first plan of action after the initial confusion has settled is to rush where she's being held to ensure her safety.
- Possibly justified by the fact that Aida turns out to be his sister and Bell seems to have emerging newtype capabilities.
- Genki Guy: He remains remarkably upbeat until the final stage of the series, when things get too frantic and confusing.
- Flawed Prototype: Several of the experimental backpacks the Megafauna's engineering team cook up for the G-Self have a couple of kinks that need to be ironed out, and don't last for more than one episode as a result:
- The Reflector Pack's Energy Absorption gimmick requires it to get shot, damaging and eventually overloading it. It does its job, but it's not even remotely reusable.
- The Tricky Pack's overhanging I-field projectors wreck the pilot's peripheral vision, and the additional thrusters are... well... tricky to handle.
- The High Torque Pack, as the name suggests, has almost literally murderous acceleration, making it a nightmare to control and putting enormous strain on the pilot.
- Grade Skipper: Is probably the youngest in the current batch of cadets, due to skipping two grades in the Capital Academy. Mask uses this as a taunt.
- Grand Theft Prototype: After subduing Aida's G-Self, he then gets in and moves it.
- Guile Hero: He tends to use tricky moves in battle, as seen when he jacks the G-Self and later when he fights a very powerful prototype by dropping what is basically a big water balloon from the Core Fighter. He also considers himself to be spying for the Guard and wants to bring the G-Self back to them.
- Happily Adopted: At first it was only a rumor. He later learns it to be true and seems to be somewhat shocked by the news well, not actually by the fact itself, but rather by his real lineage.
- I Did What I Had to Do: In regards to killing Captain Cahill.
- In-Series Nickname:
- His friends call him "Bell".
- Mask Luin Lee calls him "Grade Skipper".
- Instant Expert: Is able to pilot the G-Self almost perfectly from the moment he gets into the cockpit. Keep in mind that the number of times he's piloted a mecha before that point can be counted on one hand.
- Invincible Hero: Spends pretty much most of the series being nigh untouchable with some fights having him winning by simply just flying through the battlefield. It isn't until the final battle that he receives more than a scratch by losing one of his mobile suits legs, but that's about it.
- Keet: Being too young and cute for Boisterous Bruiser.
- Long-Range Fighter: The Assault Pack is optimised for long-ranged suppressive fire, and is uselessly cumbersome in close quarters. Doesn't count as a Flawed Prototype, though, because Bellri and his commanders make the very sensible decision to only use it in long-ranged combat like they're supposed to.
- Love at First Sight: Towards Aida. Though he denies it out of nowhere in the episode 3 preview. And then she turns out to be his sister.
- Mecha Expansion Pack: The G-Self's primary gimmick is a range of Strike Gundam-style backpacks with their own built-in weapons and gadgets. To list them all:
- The Atmosphere Pack, a set of wings and thrusters to aid manoeuvrability in Earth's atmosphere.
- The Space Pack, a simple set of extra thrusters for (naturally) space combat.
- The Reflector Pack, a set of mirrors designed to absorb enemy beams and convert them into additional power for the Gundam.
- The Tricky Pack, a high-manoeuvrability design with I-fields to deflect attacks and holographic projectors to confuse enemies.
- The High Torque Pack, a full suit of Powered Armour designed to boost the G-Self's speed, power, and durability in ground combat.
- The Assault Pack, a massive lump of guns and missiles optimised for long-ranged suppressive fire.
- The Perfect Pack, an immensely powerful Venusian design which combines the technologies of the Assault, Reflector, and High Torque packs and throws in some extra hypertech for good measure.
- Must Make Amends: Claims that his desire to fight for the pirates is his way of making up for causing Captain Cahill's death.
- My God, What Have I Done?: He's trying to convince himself that he didn't kill Dellensen at the end of Episode 5, but it's not much good.
- Never My Fault: He's got a bad habit of blaming others when things go wrong, which starts to stray into more disturbing territory as the series progresses - witness how he justifies picking a fight with a Towasangan suit patrol to blow off steam after finding out Aida is his sister, or making ever-more-extravagant use of Human Shield tactics.
- Stepford Smiler: Although he always appears to be his usual cheerful self, laughing off any troubles and acting like nothing fazes him, which is first seen in episode 2 when Bellri, after being tripped by a bully, tries to break up the fight between the bully and Luin, who's trying to defend him, by quickly changing the topic — more darkly, it becomes more and more clear that the constant tolls of battle and shock after shock is wearing Bellri's smile pretty thin late into the series, as he becomes more irritable and prone to freaking out as the series continues.
- Superpowered Evil Side: A downplayed example. The 'Rayhunton Code' installed in the G-Self's operating system is designed to protect the pilot at all costs, enabling the Photon Armor and channeling more power to the weapons when Bellri's in a pinch. The catch is that it also overrides Bellri's control of his machine, meaning that his response to a life-threatening attack is often more brutal and devastating than he intends it to be.
- Technical Pacifist: Most fights he goes out of his way to not try to kill the opponent no matter which side they are on.
- What Measure Is a Mook?: He doesn't generally have a problem with fighting except when he actually sees the other pilot—then he can't shoot, at least initially. Later he kind of gets used to it, though he still tries to avoid killing as much as possible.
- Why Did You Make Me Hit You?: A heartbreaking example after Bellri screams out reasons why its the enemy pilot's fault that he was killed when he realized was probably Dellensen.
- It becomes a pretty consistent character trait as the show goes on, with Bell blaming his opponents for making him fight back in order to survive.
- Accidental Truth: Aida initially introduces herself as Aida Rayhunton when she and the G-Self are captured in the first episode, getting the name from the G-Self. It isn't revealed until halfway through the series that that really is her name.
- Beam Spam: The eight lasers on the Full Dress Mecha Expansion Pack let the G-Arcane pull this off, but unusually, it's not for attacking other suits - it's the sci-fi equivalent of a CIWS, intended for protecting the Arcane and its squadmates by shooting down or disrupting incoming beams and missiles.
- BFG: Deconstructed - the G-Arcane's primary weapon is an enormous, cumbersome anti-ship rifle that she can barely aim, and which is thus far less useful than smaller and less powerful suit weapons.
- BFS: The G-Arcane's anti-ship rifle can form a beam blade around its barrel, turning it into a huge, clumsy greatsword. Since Aida prefers ranged combat, she doesn't use this function much.
- Character Development: Goes from somewhat hot headed and over-eager to prove herself to calm and collected de-facto leader of the Megafauna crew. Especially noticeable after she finds out about her past and who she is, which seems to give her a stronger sense of self. Her recently revealed brother seems to be kinda confused on the other hand.
- Compressed Hair: Aida has really long, loose hair. Somehow she stuffed all of it neatly into her helmet; it comes flying out everywhere after she's captured. (Later episodes avert this by showing her hair in a bun when she suits up.)
- Damsel in Distress: For the first couple of episodes.
- Faux Action Girl: She's introduced as a dangerous opponent who did considerable damage to the Capital Guard units in the first episode, but once Bellri takes the G-Self she has to settle for the lousy G-Arcane. It takes her quite a few episodes to realize that its anti-ship weaponry is no good when trying to fight mobile suits, and she keeps trying to fight in close combat when a better use of the unit would be as a sniper in a stationary fighting position. Trying to aim the thing and move at the same time routinely leads to her getting knocked over and bailed out by the G-Self. (She eventually sorts out her fighting style and puts up a decent show during later battles, with the help of the Arcane's Mid-Season Upgrade.)
- Flawed Prototype: The G-Arcane, Ameria's attempt to create a Gundam from severely incomplete Rose of Hermes blueprints without the adequate technical knowhow, is an ugly, near-useless hunk of junk. It becomes even more obvious when it fights side-by-side with the proper version, the sleek, deadly Gundam G-Lucifer.
- Irony: Gives her last name as "Rayhunton" during the first episode to disguise who she is, based on something she heard the G-Self's computer say. It turns out that this is her real last name and that her parents were the leaders of the Rayhunton faction of the Moon.
- The Leader: After the Megafauna and the Amerian Army begin moving independently, she effectively becomes in command of the Megafauna, directing their next actions.
- Long-Range Fighter: Her combat skills are unimpressive and she's flying a decidedly unwieldy suit. Hanging back and blasting in the vague direction of the enemy is the safest option, so that's what she generally does.
- Pink Girl, Blue Boy: The pink to Bell's blue.
- Space Pirates: Claims to be one. Intelligence indicates she's really working for the Amerian forces.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Is her surname Surgan or Surugan?
- Stay in the Kitchen: Some of the space pirates outright beg her to do this. It's probably due to the fact that A) she's the only daughter of their main backer and B) her previous sortie in the G-Self ended with her getting captured.
- Stepford Smiler: She thanks Bell for helping the Megafauna with all apparent sincerity and a smile, but once she's on her own she breaks down over having to do it since she has not forgiven him for Cahill's death.
- Tender Tears: She cries after being captured and when Cahill is killed in the second episode.
- Transforming Mecha: The G-Arcane model kit can transform into a Mobile Armor. Goodness knows why it never did in the series proper.
- Whip It Good: Like a number of other Amerian suits, the G-Arcane is fitted with beam whips for close combat (in its case, they're stored in its wrists). Since they're melee weapons, Aida doesn't use them much.
- Worf Had the Flu: For a supposed Ace Pilot she's defeated rather easily by a kid in a training unit, but then, the G-Self kept fouling up because it was reacting to Bellri himself. The G-Arcane is a severely flawed unit that was constructed from incomplete blueprints, and equipped with weapons that are totally unsuitable for suit-to-suit combat.
- Ace Pilot: After she recovers from her oxygen deprivation, she reveals herself to be the second-best pilot on the Megafauna, holding her own alongside powerful combat suits in a Towasangan construction machine, the Neodu.
- Cloudcuckoolander: When she's not repeating things, she's playing with HAROBE... or getting in Klim's way and pulling his hair. She seems like she has some kind of actual brain damage or mental disability. However, later she recovers and regains her memories, and is recast into one of the most mature and professional members of the cast.
- Easy Amnesia: She gets amnesia fairly realistically when she falls out of her mobile suit in the upper atmosphere and seems to be suffering from brain damage that reduces her to a childlike state. But once she's brought to a familiar place, not only does she regain her memory almost immediately, her mental capacity is completely restored.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Her final machine (which she co-pilots with Noredo) is a sinister mono-eyed design called the 'G-Lucifer' that's modelled after one of the most iconic villain suits of the Universal Century, Haman Khan's Qubeley. She's still firmly on the side of our heroes, though.
- Dark-Skinned Blonde: Or pale green hair, in her case.
- Iconic Item: Her fishtank.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Presumably caused by oxygen deprivation.
- Line-of-Sight Name: The soldiers dub her "Monday" because that's the day she was found on.
- The Mole: Was sent in as the pilot of the YG-111 recon unit by the Rayhunton foundation for the Dorette fleet's reconquista. Unknown to her the YG-111's real mission however, was to find the Rayhunton's children.
- Mysterious Waif: She clearly has major connections to the plot, not that she remembers what they are. But she calls the G-Self "Papa", repeats mysterious phrases like "G", and certain things like space and the G-Self trigger panic attacks. Things became much more clear by the time she completely recovers.
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast: She becomes the pilot of the "Gundam Lucifer".
- Oblivious to Love: Either that, or consciously decided to ignore Kerbes' and Ringo's advances.
- Smash Sisters: With her friend and former minder, Noredo, after the Megafauna crew get their hands on the multi-seater G-Lucifer.
- Unwanted Harem: Thanks to Ringo and Kerbes at times even in battle she comes off as a Clueless Dude Magnet.
A member of the cheerleading squad that takes a shining for Bellri Zenam and later follows him around the Earth Sphere.
- Big Brother Instinct: Sister, rather. She and the rest of the cheerleaders basically adopt Raraiya, and after Noredo ends up with the pirates, she continues looking out for her.
- The Cheerleader
- Childhood Friends: To Bellri.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: Does NOT like Aida being around Bellri (some of her behavior is downright nasty) and she takes note when Bellri is hanging around other girls. This seems to cool down by the time they find out that Bellri and Aida are siblings but the signs still show up even afterward.
- Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: Babysitting Raraiya is her main role on the Megafauna. Once Raraiya recovers, she finds herself at a loose end until they start piloting together.
- Only Sane Man: Well, girl. She definitely has the most common sense among the show's young'uns and some of the adults as well.
- Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Similarly to Aida, she's the pink girl to Bell's blue boy.
- Those Two Guys: Well, gals with Manny. Not only they pretty much resumed being BFFs, but both are actually sharing the post of the Megafauna's assistant quartermaster.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Although it's not played dramatically, she is pretty disgruntled at how chummy Bellri is with the pirates and several times asks, pointedly, when they're going to escape already.
- Dirty Old Man: He regularly sexually harasses Steer and once tried to enter the same bath as the female crew of the Megafauna aboard the Crescent Ship.
- Male Gaze: To Steer at one point. (She does not take it well and makes it known.)
- Reasonable Authority Figure: As long as he's not pushed around by his upppers, he's one of the most levelheaded characters in the series.
Gisela and Steer
Two female crew members of the Megafauna. Gisela is the bridge officer, and Steer is the helmsman.
- Ambiguously Brown: Steer.
- Gratuitous English: Nearly all of Steer's lines are barking directions or repeating orders in English.
Luan and Oliver
Two Grimoire pilots for the ship.
- Heterosexual Lifepartners: Each other. Luan also has a brief fling with Kerbes while they're on Sankt Port.
- Hopeless Suitor: Luan has a huge, obvious crush on Aida.
Bellri's former instructor and subordinate to Dellensen at the Capital Guard. He joined the Megafauna crew under Wilmit's request.
- Heterosexual Lifepartners: He switches partners a lot, first being seen in a pair with Dellensen, then with Luan, and finally Ringo.
- Mauve Shirt: He's a skilled pilot and acts as important backup to the main characters in almost every battle, but doesn't get a whole lot of character development himself.
Ringo Lon Giamanotta
Member of the Dorette Fleet who was captured by Bellri. He eventually defects to the Megafauna crew to pursue a romance with Raraiya.
- Expy: Visually, he resembles Dorel Ronah from Gundam F91.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Kerbes, despite often bickering with each other over Raraiya's attention.
- Hopeless Suitor: His huge crush on Raraiya pretty much goes nowhere, as she seems to happily ignore both him and Kerbes.
- Knight in Shining Armor: He sees himself as Raraiya's, in spite of the fact that she's one of the show's better pilots.
- Mauve Shirt: Like Kerebes, he has a distinct personality and relationship, but his role is to back them up and we don't find out much about him personally.
- Nice Guy: A pleasant enough of a guy even after being captured.
- Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Trailer: A variant - he's the only recurring character of any significance not to appear in the ED. There does not appear to be a narrative reason for this, especially since he makes it to the end of the show alive and well.
One of Megafauna's mechanics.
- Butt-Monkey: He generally gets tossed around by the very upgrades he's installing on the G-Self. At one point he's hanging onto the core fighter cockpit with his face plastered against the transparency.
- Gadgeteer Genius: He is responsible for the G-Self's weapon upgrades.
The deckchief of Megafauna. Known for distinctive hairstyle and hat.
- Mr. Fixit: She's usually seen patching up and repairing the crew's Normal Suits.
Luin Lee/Captain Mask
- Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: The Kabakali has double-jointed wrists, letting it put its beam tonfas to better use.
- Ace Custom: His Mack Knife and Elf Bullock are special officer-use versions with enhanced sensor suites in the head, and both are painted with his signature red highlights. The Kabakali is a commander-type version of the Regit grunt mobile suits used by the G-IT Corps.
- Ace Pilot: Despite getting repeatedly humiliated by Bellri, he is one of the best pilots in the show. Unfortunately, his biggest weaknesses are that he's constantly held back by his own sentimentality and a marked bad habit of relying on his suit's gimmicks to carry him through battles despite having clear openings to take out enemy MS without them. taken to it's heights with his final battle using the Kabakali against the G-Self perfect pack. While he does far better than anyone else against Bellri, part of it is because the G-Self was running very low on power, and Mask was aware of the clear advantage. Despite this he never presses his advantage and hesitates to actually kill Bellri, even though it's all but implied that he would have won if he hadn't kept holding back to avoid killing his old classmate. His Tenure in the G-Phenix (A "modern" version on the Unicorn unit 3) isn't any better, as Aida runs circles around him when he tries to use the machine's various gimmicks in Unicorn mode over actually trying to just take her out, only gets the better of her by blindsiding her with Destroy mode, and gets his G-Phenix disabled in short order by Bellri when he strictly treats the form as a power boost and has his own psychoframe turned against him.
- Beam Spam: His first two suits, the Elf Bullock and Mack Knife, are literally covered with beam guns. The Kabakali, his final machine, swaps out quantity for quality.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: As Luin, he acts righteous and friendly towards Bellri, but under his new identity as Mask, he is short-tempered, highly excitable, ambitious, and most of all, sneaky. He manipulates people left and right — in a sense, his identity as Mask is closer to his true face than Luin.
- Blade Below the Shoulder: The Kabakali's 'beam tonfas' are essentially beam sabers mounted on the back of its hands.
- Char Clone: An archetypal example. He's a mask-wearing Ace Pilot flying suits with red highlights whose revolutionary vision for the Earth Sphere keeps getting derailed by his obsessive mad-on for the Gundam and its pilot.
- Dance Battler: The Mack Knife, an incredibly agile suit designed for zero-G combat, is optimised for this fighting style, and he soon gets into the swing of it nicely.
- Even Evil Has Standards: He wants to defeat Bellri, sure, but for all his talk, he can't bring himself to kill him. It and ultimately the G-Self's sheer power is why he loses his final fight.
- False Friend: In episode two, Luin's classmate suggests that he's only being nice to Bellri in order to ingratiate himself to Wilmet, the Operation Director. Later, Luin rants about Bellri's privileged birth, and only getting angrier when he learns that Bellri is at an even higher position in society than he previously believed. It's clear that Luin never liked Bellri in the first place.
- Fantastic Racism: Everyone who meets him makes sure to point out that he's a Kuntala.
- Finger Firearms: The Elf Bullock and Mack Knife's primary ranged weapons are the beam guns built into their fingers. The latter takes it up a notch by having toe-guns as well.
- Hidden Depths: At first, he seems to be just an ace pilot with hot blooded tendencies, out to fulfill his mission for the Capital Army. Later on, it turns out he's trying his best to succeed as a way to prove that Kuntala aren't inferior and fight for a better place for them in society.
- Hot-Blooded: He's really intense while fighting the pirates, eager to fight to his fullest ability.
- Killer Yo Yo: The Kabakali's beam rings, an apparent evolution of Zanscare 'beam string' technology, which can either slice apart enemies (up to and including warships) with a single swing or hoop around a mobile suit like quoits and immobilise it.
- Large Ham: Once he's behind the comforting anonymity of his mask, he really lets rip. It's actually kind of amazing that both the mild-mannered Luin and the bombastic Mask are voiced by the same guy.
- Mask of Power: The mask is a (very stylish) monitor that aids his piloting.
- Motive Decay: As the series progresses, his dreams of Kuntala supremacy slowly get swallowed up by his enormous grudge against Bellri and the G-Self, much to the concern of his fellow soldiers.
- Nose Art: The colour schemes of his suits vary considerably, but all of them have red highlights.
- Not So Different: Despite his dislike of Bellri, the two share many parallels. Both are cadets who end up joining forces with groups they initially opposed and later become the Ace Pilot of those factions, they both struggle with their heritage (Lee's Kuntala background and Bellri's Towasangan nobility) and in the epilogue both leave their respective groups to go travelling around the world, though for different reasons. Also, if you consider the OVA as canon then both have dormant Newtype potential.
- Pintsized Powerhouse: His second machine, the short, delicate Mack Knife, is an enhanced version of his first machine, the hulking Elf Bullock, with improved agility and a more versatile suite of weaponry.
- Revenge Before Reason: By the time his third or fourth defeat rolls round, Bellri and the G-Self basically trigger a Pavlovian rage response in him, which Cumpa exploits for all it's worth.
- Sempai/Kohai: Luin is older than Bellri.
- Shotguns Are Just Better: The Kabakali's primary ranged armament is a beam shotgun, and it does its job superbly.
- Simple, yet Awesome: Apart from its beam rings, the Kabakali doesn't really have any special tricks or gimmicks, and it's positively plain compared to most endgame suits in the show. It's just a versatile, superbly-engineered general-purpose machine that can fight on even terms with the ludicrously deadly G-Self Perfect Pack.
- Transforming Mecha: The Elf Bullock. The Mack Knife is a fairly half-hearted example - it just does the splits and lets its thruster placement and naturally aerodynamic shape do the rest.
- Unusual Weapon Mounting: The Elf Bullock and Mack Knife are literally covered with beam guns, grende launchers, and missile tubes, but the grand prize for this trope probably goes to the Mack's pair of long-ranged 'photon eye' missiles, which are stored in downward-facing tubes in the crotch armour. Firing them basically involves mooning the enemy.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Cue some people dubbing him the second coming of Harry Ord.
- Expository Hairstyle: A minor one. She changes her hairstyle to a much more practical bob haircut when she joins the Capital Army reserve.
- Fantastic Racism: She's also a Kuntala.
- Grand Theft Prototype: Steals the G-Rach from Venus Globe, and later sneaks away from the Megafauna to rejoin the Mask Corps with it.
- I Will Find You: Joins the Capital Army reserves in an attempt to track down the whereabouts of Bell, Norendo and Luin.
- The Reliable One: Is able to pilot the bipedal transportation Mini-Mecha as well as Luin and Bellri and seems to be more level headed one between herself and Noredo.
- Subordinate Excuse: She's in love with Luin (in part because he's fighting for Kuntala pride) and will do anything for him, and to be worthy of him, including turning on her old school friends.
- Took A Level In Jerk Ass: In episode 25, she helps Luin try to kill Bellri, though he's her friend, and even attempted to talk to Luin to drop his grudge an episode before.
A Capital Army pilot and a subordinate of Mask.
- Ace Custom: Just like Mask, she pilots an officer-spec Mack Knife (with two eyes rather than the mass-produced version's one) with a unique paintjob.
- Ax-Crazy: While piloting the Yggdrasil in episode 24, she lets loose and revels in the chaos and destruction.
- Blood Knight: Even while piloting regular mobile suits, she finds a little too much enjoyment in battle.
- Expy: Borrows a lot of traits from Haman Khan's fourteen-year-old self, a gifted pilot in a relationship with a Char Clone hung up on another woman, although she has the older version's appearance and cynical attitude.
- Flawed Prototype: The Bifron was put together so quickly and shoddily that much of her time in it involves wrestling bits of the instrument panel back into place as it falls apart. Her enthusiasm at using it as a target when test-firing the Yggdrasil speaks volumes.
- Green-Eyed Monster: She's jealous of the attention that Mask shows to Manny and wants to prove herself as the more worthy partner. She's a good enough soldier to take it out on the enemy, not her own side, but it does result in her taking big risks that eventually get her killed.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: The Bifron has four arms, which carry some combination of punch daggers and double-barrelled rifles.
- Nose Art: She favours pink and purple - both her Mack Knife and Bifron are painted in it.
- Pink Means Feminine: The Bifron is a pink mobile suit and is piloted by a female pilot.
- Rocket Punch: The Bifron may be a Towasangan design, but it demonstrates its compatibility with the Capital Army's Armed Legs design aesthetic by attacking Klim with a rocket kick.
- Ace Pilot: He got his job as a teacher because he is, in fact, a highly skilled pilot. It doesn't take him long to give cocky Klim Nick serious trouble in the Catsith, and the genius pilot is little more than a roadblock to him in the incredibly powerful Elf Bull.
- A Father to His Men:
- He's really upset when his mission to retrieve Bell and friends ends with the deaths of his men.
- He also slaps Aida in anger because she fired a beam rifle at one of his precious students.
- Mentor Occupational Hazard: He winds up joining the Capital Army to save Bellri and instead gets killed by him in a mistake where the two realize too late who the other pilot they were fighting was.
- Stern Teacher: In his first scene he cracks a whip at his class for letting their minds wander.
- Transforming Mecha: His Elf Bull.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has purple hair.
Director Wilmit Zenam
- Gender-Blender Name: Not that any of these names are regular, but "Wilmit" makes one picture a man before seeing her.
- Guile Hero: She puts on a ruse so she can get to Bell without raising suspicion, and later plays the Capital Guard off the Capital Army so she can arrange a meeting between Inspector-General Surugan and the Holy Minister.
- Locked Out of the Loop: Regarding the militarization of the Capital.
- Mama Bear: She personally goes to the Amerian pirates to rescue Bell once she sees that he's there.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: She panics loudly when she "accidentally" activates and launches an antiquated shuttle so that she can rescue her son, not trusting the Capital Army. (She does have some genuine panic about entering the atmosphere properly, but she manages it.)
- When You Coming Home, Dad?: Downplayed. Bell makes a cheerful remark that she's too busy with her job to spend more time with him (for which he's chided), but she clearly cares about him.
Colonel Cumpa Rusita
- Ambiguously Evil: He hasn't kicked any dogs, but he is pretty sinister and seems to be behind the rise of 'taboo' technology among the Earth nations. It's eventually revealed that he's a rogue Venusian who, disgusted with the decay and decadence on his home station, decided to kick the human race out of its rut by escalating tensions and provoking war on Earth.
- Fantastic Racism: He views Earthnoids as dimwitted primitives. It's why he doesn't care much about the fact that his plan to kick the human race out of its stagnation will cause so much human misery.
- Gone Horribly Right: He wanted a war in order to invigorate humanity, but he's visibly disgusted by how messy and enthusiastic everyone is about it, and alarmed by the escalating collateral damage.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: He is ultimately killed as mere collateral damage in the war he instigated.
- The Man Behind the Man: Manipulates Capital government into creation of a standing army, as well as procuring a spaceship for it, which is a clear breach of the existing rules, but the only resistance he gets is some passive-aggressive complaints (and, as of Episode 8, some outright sabotage).
- Meaningful Name: "Cumpa" is a slang for the Italian compare and Spanish compadre, both of which are from the Latin compaternote and used to refer to a male friend. How much he lived up to it is debatable, especially considering the lives of those supposedly on his side that he endangered with his scheming.
- The Mole: From some of his lines early on (that he manages well to keep to himself) it's clearly evident and later confirmed that he's actually a spacenoid, probably a Moon Race one from Towasanga, sent to spy on Earth. Ultimately averted, as his actions are clearly his own.
- Smug Snake: Cumpa is pretty obviously full of himself, though he refrains from Chewing the Scenery.
- Visionary Villain: Like many Gundam villains before him, he thinks that extended peacetime causes humanity to stagnate.
- Walking Spoiler: As a consequence of being one of the most enigmatic and plot-important characters in the show.
The Holy MinisterThe ruler of the Capital, addressed as "His Holiness."
Captain Becker Shadam
- Arm Cannon: Wuxias, his machine of choice, have gatling guns built into their forearms as Emergency Weapons, much like the earlier Elf series's beam guns.
- Ax-Crazy: He's twitchy, impulsive, and way too enthusiastic in suit combat. Even Mask isn't as bloodthirsty.
- Bare-Fisted Monk: His signature machine, the Wuxia, is only equipped with ranged weapons (two forearm gatlings and a beam rifle), but its strength, speed, and dexterity make it admirably suited for unarmed combat, and that's how Becker prefers to fight.
- Character Death: Killed by Rockpie.
- Gangsta Style: A justified example - the Wuxia's beam rifle is actually designed to be held sideways. It gives the forearm gatlings a clear field of fire, and computer-assisted aiming plus the lack of recoil and moving parts on a beam weapon negate most of the usual disadvantages. Despite this, it also serves as a nice piece of visual shorthand for him and his men's showboating and lack of professionalism.
- Jerkass: Cocky, arrogant, and likes to say hello with violence. Combined with his Ax-Crazy attitude in battle, he tends to come across as a sillier and less threatening (but still dangerous) Yazan Gable.
- Laughably Evil: While he's a fairly skilled pilot, his enthusiasm tends to severely outstrip his talent, making his single-minded aggression less scary and more ridiculous.
- Wrestler in All of Us: Memorably performs a suplex on the G-Arcane in his Wuxia.
Klim Nick (Klimton Nicchini)
- Ace Pilot: He may be the series posterboy for The Worf Effect, but he fights with enough skill and precision that it's very obviously technological inferiority rather than ability holding him back - he holds his own excellently against hyper-advanced Towasangan and Capital Army machines in a glorified Zaku, the Space Jahannam, and when he gets a top-of-the-line Venusian suit, the Dahack, the results are extraordinary.
- Ace Custom: His Montero, and later his Space Jahannam. Both decked out in his personal blue paintjob.
- An Axe to Grind: Being a Zaku-expy, his Space Jahannam has a large folding beam axe as its primary melee weapon.
- Bifurcated Weapon: The Montero carries two short clubs in its shoulder binders that can combine and telescope outward to become a double-ended javelin.
- Bishōnen: He has very pretty features and long hair... and he's well-aware of the fact.
- Close-Range Combatant: His final suit, the Dahack, has no ranged weapons, instead relying on its 'beam plunder' shields to keep it safe as it closes the distance to slice its foes up with its four beam sabers.
- Combat Pragmatist: He deliberately positions the Amerians in front of Sankt Port so that they can fire without being hit back, since nobody in the other factions are willing to aim at a holy site.
- Insufferable Genius: He's known as Genius Klim. Though he's not a jerk and cares about his troops, he quite enthusiastically boasts about his tactical brilliance and uses the nickname himself.
- Manipulative Bastard: Plays Raraiya like a fiddle when persuading her to pilot the G-Self (though he comes to her defense when it goes south) and initially implies that Raraiya and Noredo are hostages to make Bellri defend the Megafauna with the G-Self.
- Meta Mecha: The Dahack is normally stowed inside the Dharma, a large, loosely humanoid mobile armour that serves as a re-entry capsule.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: His borrowed Venusian suit, the Dahack, has four folding arms fitted with beam sabers on its back that serve as its primary offensive weapons - its hands are occupied with the 'beam plunder' system, a pair of energy-absorbing shields.
- Mundane Utility: Prior to being modified for combat, the Dahack was actually built to mine resources, using its beam guns to break apart rocks and protecting itself from the debris using its beam barriers.
- Nose Art: His Ace Custom Amerian suits are distinguished from the mass-produced versions by their signature blue paintjob.
- Patricide: Attempted in the finale by having the Crescent ship ram into his father during a speech as punishment for sending him his expected death so he could be used as a martyr. It's left unclear whether he succeeded or not, as Zucchini is shown rolling out of the way only to have a tarp and some rubble fall over him.
- Short Hair with Tail: Most of his hair is chin-length except for a long braid in back.
- Super Prototype: The experimental Venusian suit he pilots in the final battle, the Dahack, is extremely powerful, and he makes excellent use of it.
- Sword and Gun: Standard for the franchise, but he deserves special mention - one of his favourite stunts in combat is killing two enemies at once with his beam rifle and melee weapon.
- What Beautiful Eyes!: Raraiya says he has pretty eyes while he's in the middle of ranting. His response is an offhand "Yes, I get that all the time."
- Whip It Good: Appropriately for an expy of the Gouf, his Montero can project beam whips from either end of its javelin for that little bit of extra reach.
- The Worf Effect: He's a skilled pilot, but early on his fights end badly through a combination of technical inferiority and his own overconfidence. It goes away when he gets the Dahack.
- Token Evil Teammate: He's always on the same side as our heroes (or, at least, never comes into direct conflict with them), but is a gleefully amoral warmonger with zero regard for The Laws and Customs of War.
- Beam Spam: How she fights with the Armorzagan.
- Big Damn Heroes: Her intervention with the Armorzagan helps drive away Mask's squad long enough for the Bell and the Space Pirates to regroup.
- Flawed Prototype: As a test pilot for the Amerian army, she's frequently burdened with these. The Armorzagan, Ameria's answer to the Big Zam, is powerful, but so shoddily-constructed that it literally starts falling apart mid-battle, while her final machine, the Trinity, is a crude, undergunned prototype of the much more dangerous Gundam G-Lucifer. Her primary suit throughout the series, the Hecate, would probably count as a Super Prototype (agile, tough, reliable, well-armed, and generally a cut above ordinary Amerian machines) if it wasn't so severely obsolete compared to Towasanga and the Capital Army's suits.
- Gatling Good: Hecate has a huge gatling gun.
- Gender-Blender Name: Mick is a man's name, at least in English.
- Cool Big Sis: To the Megafauna crew in general, and Klim in particular, who she tries to be a moderating influence on.
- Pink Means Feminine: The Hecate is a pink mobile suit piloted by a female pilot.
- Rapunzel Hair: Goes all the way down past her waist. She wears it up while piloting.
Guison SuruganAida's father, and the Inspector General of the Amerian Army. He boards the Megafauna when it meets up with the Amerian mobile armor Armorzagan.
- Character Death: Is killed by being sucked out into space when a stray beam shot from the exploding Yggdrasil blasts a hole through his ship. Made even more tragic by that he was moments away from putting on his spacesuit and was talking to Aida when it happened.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Is perfectly willing to work with Bellri and his mother, give them the information they ask for, and listen to their requests, including attempting a meeting with the Capital Guard.
A captain of the Space Pirates, he led an assault on the Capital to get back Aida and the G-Self.
- Gonk: For a show where even the aged male characters tend to be plain at worst, Dorette is uncharacteristically old, short and ugly.
- Small Name, Big Ego: As it turns out, Towasanga is actually nothing special, and similar to Earth consists of numerous feuding factions that consider the capture or alliance with just a single warship a serious advantage over its rivals. Dorette Fleet is just one of these factions, if large and influential, though you'd find it difficult to see that from his behavior alone.
- Smug Snake: Pretty full of himself for a bit warlord.
- Ambiguously Brown
- A Mother to Her Men: Seems to be genuinely concerned for Rockpie's safety and in episode 23 is shown hugging some of her men (not just Rockpie) before they head out into battle.
- Death Seeker: Her final words imply that she fully intended to get the ship destroyed so she could join Rockpie.
- Everyone Can See It: It's all but stated early on that her and Rockpie are in a relationship, and ultimately confirmed later on.
- Ms. Fanservice: From what Klim discovers from the pictures from Rockpie's room.
- Sanity Slippage: To say Rockpie's death hit her hard would be an understatement. By episode 25, she's completely lost it, thinking she hears him giving commander advice and following them until it gets her and her crew killed
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has green hair.
- Blood Knight: He is very aggressive in MS combat.
- Character Death: Killed by Bellri after he kills one of the Venus Globe pilots that Bellri and others took near the battle to show them what war is like only to get drawn into battle by chasing the lights..
- Hypocrite: Despite his continual insistence that Earthnoids are war-loving barbarians, he himself is very obviously eager to fight in MS combat and to demonstrate Towasanga's technological superiority by slaughtering Earthnoids using superweapons.
- Katanas Are Just Better: He and his Moran squadron use beam-edged katanas rather than ordinary beam sabers, befitting their image as an aristocratic praetorian guard rather than a proper military.
- Likes Older Women: In a relationship with Mashner, the captain of the Knossos.
- The Lost Lenore: Becomes this for Mashner, who seeks to avenge his death.
- Psychopathic Manchild: The glee with which he kills people using Towasanga's incredible weapons is no different from the joy of a child playing with his new toys.
- Super Prototype: His Gaitrash, designed to test out Towasanga's experimental beam curtain technology, works spectacularly, and is a strong candidate for the most dangerous suit in the Earth Sphere until the raw insanity from the Venus Globe shows up.
- The Mole: Turned out to be a mole for the Venus Globe and not even for its central government, but for the G-IT Labs faction.
- Beam Spam: In addition to its hand-held rifle, the twelve beam sabers on the Gaeon's wings can also serve as guns, allowing it to put on a very impressive lightshow.
- Big Bad Wannabe: Assumes that the Venus Globe's cultural and technology (plus him and his friends' research of the Universal Century) will ensure the G-IT Labs' supremacy in the solar system without any pesky details like experience or military training. Bellri's demonstration of how wrong he is is swift, brutal, and humiliating, and he's dead within three episodes of his first appearance thanks to his own screw-up.
- Blood Knight: He gets so engrossed in fighting that he basically fails to see his surroundings.
- Dual Wielding: The Gaeon has no less than twelve beam sabers built into its wings, and typically uses eight at once, setting a new record for the franchise.
- Face of a Thug: His harsh features and wild eyes make him look like an Ax-Crazy Sociopathic Soldier, not a naive, idealistic scientist playing at war who's badly out of his depth.
- Fantastic Racism: Fears and despises Earthnoids, seeing them as murderous, uncontrollable children. At one point, he tries to convince the crew of the Megafauna to surrender themselves by offering them some tasty fish from the Venus Globe's oceans after earlier threatening to turn them into food for him and his men.
- Heroic Sacrifice: At the end of epiosde 21 which leads him to become Inspirational Martyr for the Reconguista.
- Hidden Depths: Despite early on appearing very much a Blood Knight and villain he is shown to be a lot more of a Benevolent Boss well loved by his subordinates later on including to lying about putting bombs on the heads of the Captain and First officer of the Crescent Ship and after seeing no other option with the damage he did to the Ocean Frame getting out of hand, sacrificing himself by wedging his mobile armor into the hole he made while fighting Bellry.
- I'm a Humanitarian: Threatens to turn the Megafauna's crew into Kuntala, although it soon becomes clear that this was likely a bluff.
- My God, What Have I Done?: After inadvertently damaging the bottom of the Ocean Frame during his duel with Bellri.
- BFS: The Gastima's signature weapons, a pair of oversized, overpowered beam sabers.
- Blood Knight: She's always very eager to fight. In the standoff between the Venus Globe poligits and the G-IT Corps, Chickara is the first to engage in hostilities by ramming and attempting to disable a Poligit, though she doesn't use her beam sabers until the Poligits start firing at her and the G-IT Corps.
- Defiant to the End: Ultimately the cause of her death; even with the Gastima delimbed save for one arm, she still tries to get in one last strike at Klim's Dahack, provoking him into finishing her off.
- Meaningful Name: 'Chikara' is Japanese for 'power' - entirely appropriate for a Brawn Hilda piloting a suit with a pair of giant swords.
- Pet the Dog: In the G-IT Labs team's introductory episode, she catches a free-falling Bellri and Noredo in the Gastima's hand before they can float off into space and punts them into the Megafauna's hangar. It's the first indicator that the rogue Venusians' bark is worse than their bite.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: With her squadmate, Khun. Nicely summarised in their introductory shots, where she's working out in her cockpit while Khun's fixing her makeup.
- Vasquez Always Dies: In the finale, she and the considerably girlier Khun go up against Klim and Mick. Guess which one of the two makes it out alive.
- Attack Drone: The Grod is equipped with a prototype 'anti-Minovsky field' that negates communication interference in a small area around it, letting it control remote weapons without a telepathic pilot.
- Dragon Ascendant: After Kia's death, she becomes the de facto leader of the G-IT Labs faction.
- Girlish Pigtails: She wears her hair in three spiky ponytails.
- Girl with Psycho Weapon: In grand old Gundam tradition, she's an unimposing young girl piloting one of the biggest, scariest Mobile Armors in the show.
- Mad Eye: The Mazraster, her second machine, has one eye bigger than the other, giving it a much more sinister appearance.
- Someone to Remember Him By: She is shown to be pregnant with a child in the epilogue, who she decides to name Kia Mbeki Jr.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: See Chikkara's entry.
- Whip It Good: The Mazraster's primary weapons are its pair of beam chains. It's hinted that they're where the Amerian beam whip technology came from.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has purple hair.
- Agent Peacock: He's a campy fop, but also one of the G-IT Labs faction's better pilots, and his suit, the Z'Gocky, is a nasty piece of work.
- Camp Gay: Wears eyeshadow and uses the feminine pronoun 'atashi'.
- Improbable Hairstyle: Just look at his pompadour.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: His Z'Gocky has a pair of folding manipulators hidden in its armour, much like the ones on Paptimus Scirocco's The O. They're used to grab enemy suits and let him bring his claws and drills to bear on them.
- This Is a Drill: The Z'Gocky has retractable, cylindrical drills built into the palms of its claw-hands, letting it do very unpleasant things to anything it catches in its manipulators.
- Body Horror: Beyond his relatively youthful face, in reality he is currently suffering from Age Without Youth, with the majority of his body muscles already atrophied, forcing him to wear a metal "body suit" just to be able to move. You don't see it normally because it is hidden by his clothing, and he's only exposed it to Aida, to her discomfort.
- Really 700 Years Old: The citizens of Venus Globe, particularly the higher-ups like him, are this due to genetic mutation.
