Go To

Baba Lamune

Voiced by: Takeshi Kusao
  • Bittersweet 17: Fire revealed that the legendary Hero could only be the Hero until they were 17, when Lamunade, the third of the Lamuness line, asks 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.
  • Catchphrase: "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 and Milk in the anime version of VS Knight, 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.
  • Catchphrase: "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.
  • 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.
  • Damsel in Distress: Kidnapped along with Leska at the start of Fire; she spends captivity in Go-Go Enslavement.
  • 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, 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

Cacao

Voiced by: Kyoko Hikami

Mito, Suke, and Kaku

Mito voiced by: Showtaro Morikubo
Suke voiced by: Yuji Ueda
Kaku voiced by: Kousuke Okano

Drum, Trumpet, and Cello

Drum voiced by: Yuka Imai
Trumpet voiced by: Tomoko Kawakami
Cello voiced by: Naoko Takano
  • And You Were There: Lamunade was already friends of a trio of real-world girls who he eventually realizes were Identical Strangers to Drum, Trumpet, and Cello. The three counterparts even make Early Bird Cameos in the first episode of Fire.
  • Fling a Light into the Future: The trio were created by Organ Symphony, the first Lamuness' love interest, in order to help his successor when they were awakened.
  • Last Girl Wins: Lamunade and Drum become the Official Couple of Fire.
  • Reincarnation Romance: Lamunade and Drum pick up where the first Lamuness and Organ Symphony left off, becoming the Official Couple of VS Fire.
  • Robot Girls: The trio are androids created to fall in love with, and fight alongside, the current successor to Lamuness (in this case, Lamunade). Any similarities to the Saber Marionette J franchise are intentional.
  • Sixth Ranger: The trio were created to pilot the Humongous Mecha Water Baron, the last of the Power Trio of heroic Super Robots in Fire.
  • Sudden Sequel Heel Syndrome: Major spoiler for the Fresh OVA — Electone was an Evil Knockoff of a half-destroyed Drum found floating in space, created to support and give legitimacy to the fake Lamuness the invading fleet's leaders used to hold their people together. Years of abuse and neglect by the fake as he grew corrupt eventually broke her, to the point she tried to prove her love was the true successor to Lamuness by using his corpse to try to start a Humongous Mecha that would trigger an Earth-Shattering Kaboom if used by an impostor.

Narcissus Dandy and Pheromone Lip

Dandy voiced by: Yasunori Matsumoto
