Baba Lamune

Voiced by: Takeshi Kusao
  • Bittersweet 17: Fire revealed that the legendary Hero could only be the Hero until they were 18, when Lamunade, the third of the Lamuness line, asks Parfait and Cacao why they couldn't ask the second Hero for help. On the bright side, he and Milk became Happily Married, and he was badass enough to become his son's Mysterious Protector. (Although the anime has a twist where 'Akakaze' and 'Momokaze' were summoned by Organ Symphony literally seconds before Lamune turned 18, in order to protect their Kid from the Future)
  • Catch Phrase: "Ore wa mouretsu ni nekketsu shiteru!" ("Right now, my blood is totally blazing!" in the Discotek official translation.)

    • Mad Libs Catch Phrase: More generally, he'll say variations along the lines of "Ore wa mouretsu ni [X] shiteru!" ("Right now, {I'm/My [Y]} is totally [X]!"
  • Large Ham: Both him & Milk are even hammier in VS Knight than they were in the original series. And considering he almost always takes the chance to Fist Pump when saying his catchphrase, that's nothing to take lightly.
  • Legacy Character: VS Knight and the Fresh OVA both have past and future heroes in the same lineage as major plot points. Well, really, this trope can apply to the entire main cast.
  • Hot-Blooded: He's very excitable. He even has a meter on his hero costume to measure how hot-blooded he is right now In-Universe — and he can't use some of King Squasher's special attacks like the Samulion mode until it reaches the redline.
  • Idiot Hero: For example — in the first episode, he panics when he can't fit his hand on the console locking the way to the "secret weapon" (Tama-Q) - until Milk points out that he was supposed to put his left hand there instead of his right.

  • I Know Mortal Kombat: Milk took him to Harahara World because he beat the "King Squasher" game she was trying to sell; sure enough, he knew how to use the real King Squasher almost immediately.
  • Kid-anova: Like the first opening theme promises, he's a sucker for a pretty face. Thanks to The Dulcinea Effect, he's able to channel this toward solving the problems of the Girl of the Week in the Adventure Towns he visits. Unfortunately, Lesqua has been able to exploit this more than once.
  • Most Gamers Are Male: Though he was 10 in the first series.
  • Mysterious Protector: VS Knight has Lamune and Milk assume the guises of "Akakaze (Red Wind)" and "Momokaze (Pink Wind)" to protect their son, Lamunade.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: He and Milk have turned into these in VS Knight.
  • Taken for Granite: This happens to him, Milk, and her sisters in the anime version of VS Knight after using a Combined Energy Attack to imprison the revived Abram (Black Lamuness). Thankfully, he didn't stay that way.

  • Talking to Himself: In VS Knight, he, his son Lamunade, and the first of the Lamuness Heroic Lineage — all voiced by Takeshi Kusao — have several conversations with each other.

Arara Milk

Voiced by: Chisa Yokoyama
  • Big Eater: Eating is really the only thing she has on her mind.
  • Catch Phrase: "Gratzie, Gratzie" after she's had a good meal.
  • Expressive Hair: Whenever she gets pissed, her hair spontaneously rises up on its own to illustrate her fury. It's more noticeable in the earlier episodes though.
  • Fiery Redhead: Oh so very much; especially when she's frustrated with Lamune or Cocoa.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: She and Lamune have turned into these in VS Knight after being happily married for years.
  • Taken for Granite: This happens to Milk and her sisters, along with Lamune, in the anime version of VS Knight after using a Combined Energy Attack to imprison the revived Abram (Black Lamuness). Thankfully, she didn't stay that way.
  • Tsundere: She never lets her admiration for Lamune stop her from expressing her righteous fury, especially in the EX and DX OVA's.

Arara Cocoa

Voiced by: Sakiko Tamagawa
  • Absent-Minded Professor: She has a very... unique way of viewing the world at times, and frequently causes problems by forgetting a minor, but important task.
  • Blind Without 'Em: Is show to have spectacularly poor vision without her glasses.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In VS Knight, Don Genosai brainwashes Cocoa and Lesqua into ambushing Lamunade and Da Cider and trying to kill them. In a case of Evil Costume Switch, the two of them are Dressed Like a Dominatrix, though wielding lightsabers instead of whips, and Cocoa is somehow able to see just fine without her glasses.
  • Damsel in Distress: Kidnapped along with Leska at the start of Fire; she spends captivity in Go-Go Enslavement.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: She has a talent for building Cool Ships or Cool Tanks; in the EX OVA, she's able to finish building a formidable battlewagon in the real world with random parts she's able to buy around town.
  • The Glasses Gotta Go: It's a Running Gag that everyone in the area when she takes her Opaque Nerd Glasses off is stunned by her beauty. She just goes "Huh?" as she puts the glasses back on.
  • Hollywood Homely: With her Opaque Nerd Glasses on, everyone around her, particularly her sister, treats her as homely. (Part of her establishing character moment is Milk snarking that falling off a dragon would only improve her looks.) However, Lamune, and practically anyone else who sees her when she takes off her glasses, is shocked by her beauty.
  • Shy Blue-Haired Girl: The more quiet and soft spoken of the princesses of Arara.
  • The Smart Guy: Carries a calculator to give ludicrously precise odds on demand, and is the most likely one to know about MacGuffins or Plot Coupons. (One Clip Show episode lampshades this by showing her room littered with all of the ancient scrolls she'd referred to in the past.)
  • Taken for Granite: She gets turned to stone along with Lamune and her sisters in the anime version of VS Knight after using a Combined Energy Attack to imprison the revived Abram (Black Lamuness). Thankfully she didn't stay that way.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: The name she chose for the Cool Airship she created in the first part of the original series, the "Stan Han-sen" (translated as "Stan Hanship" in the Discotek subs), implies some Hidden Depths. Naming the Cool Starship in the later episodes the "Hulk Ho-kan" ("Hulk Hogunship") strenghtens the case.

Da Cider

Voiced by: Kazuki Yao
  • Legacy Character: The first revelation that started him on the way to a Heel–Face Turn was that his ancestor was one of the original Lamuness' True Companions.
  • Older and Wiser: In Fire, he returns to serve as Lamunade's Big Brother Mentor, and the copilot for the Kaiser Fire mecha. Older, definitely (Vague Age aside). Wiser... well, undeniably more experienced, at least.
  • Pungeon Master: Continuously makes bad and untranslatable puns, that only he and Hebi Metako laugh at. His Punny Name ("Dasai da" - "That's lame/classless") is usually taken as a reference to his jokes.

Lesqua a.k.a. Arara Cafe Au Lait

Voiced by: Naoko Matsui

Baba Lamunade

Voiced by: Takeshi Kusao
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: Lamunade inherited his dad's catchphrase.
  • Generation Xerox: One of his catchphrases is "My DNA is telling me to [X]", for when he gets the urge to follow in his father's footsteps.
  • Legacy Character: The premise of VS Knight is that Lamunade is following in his father's footsteps as a successor to the legendary original hero Lamuness.

Parfait

Voiced by: Yuko Miyamura
  • A Day in the Limelight: She was actually the main character of the Fresh OVA, forced to lead the fight against the villainous new Lamuness she and Cacao were sent to serve. Lemon, the actual Lamuness descendant she was looking for, only acts as a Tagalong Kid until the end of the series.
  • Catchphrase: "Gimon", which translates as "(I have) doubts/questions" — usually about the antics of the legendary Heroes she and Cacao are depending on.
  • Generation Xerox: Like Milk, a petite, fiery redheaded companion of The Hero.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: At the end of Fire, both she and Cacao wistfully wish Lamunade and the reborn Drum from the real world well before leaving forever.
  • Only Sane Man: Parfait is generally the voice of reason for Lamunade, Da Cider, and even Cacao, although she's not immune to being stupid in her own ways.
