    Pacifist Faction 

Souya Kuroi

Voiced by: Atsushi Abe

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/souya_kuroi_2.jpg
Protagonist of the story. A boy taken from the destroyed planet Sirius, being raised on Earth now by Sensei and Ginko. He wants to avenge the death of the people from his home planet.

  • Amnesiac Hero: He starts out with no memory of his past. Once gets his memories back, he suddenly becomes a lot less heroic.
  • Alien Among Us: Keeps his identity a secret from his fellow classmates. He later reveals his identity to Takamagahara.
  • Character Development: From a loudmouth kid obsessed with revenge to a calm grown up who forgives his worst enemy.
  • Clark Kenting: Is able to avoid being identified despite having no real disguise (Justified as Sensei having the ability to alter a person's memory during battle.)
  • Doomed Hometown: His planet, Sirius, was destroyed by the Dragon pior to the start of the story.
  • Hot-Blooded: Very much so when he fights, he keeps shouting and trying to pull the same moves on enemies, going straight to attack before the others have any time to react.
  • Human Alien: He appears human, but is actually a Siriusian.
  • Oh, Crap!: Moment when he realizes using Sensei's "Cat-Doping" will leave him in a hangover the next day, making him unable to attend school (Right after he promises Takamagahara he'll start coming to school regularly).
  • Revenge: His main motivation is to exact revenge against the Dragon that laid waste to his home planet, and it's why he fights Grand Paladin. Once the Dragon is defeated, he loses all motivation to fight, even when other threats manifest.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: After the five-year Time Skip, he strongly resembles his brother.
  • Survivor Guilt: Fuels most of his vendetta against Grand Paladin as well as his constant hallucinations of his deceased brother.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Meat. Played with due to Souya constantly being denied the chance to eat any, or is constantly given meat replacements.
  • Transhuman Aliens: Sirusians and Humans all descend from a common ancestor, allowing Souya to blend in perfectly.
  • Villain Protagonist: At first. He's fighting Grand Paladin to avenge the destruction of his world and doesn't really care about Nebula's agenda or what will become of humanity. This wears out over time after he exacts his revenge and spends some time entirely listless, and eventually he decides he cares for humanity and fights for a new cause.

Ginko Kuroi

Voiced by: Shiori Izawa

A girl in a maid outfit that assists and translates for Sensei.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ginko_kuroi.jpg

  • Actual Pacifist: Never fights. At most, she supports Souya with her energy. She is even a vegetarian who opposes killing animals for food when there are other options available, like all the people from her planet. She even calls Souya a "monster" when she feels like he is attacking Takashi too aggressively.
    • By the end of the series, its revealed she wanted to thank the Dragon, because his actions, evil as she considers them, saved both her planet and her people. Doing this is extremely difficult for her and she breaks down crying after it.
  • Animal Motifs: Cats. While not a Cat Girl, she has a Cat Smile, has cat paw symbols on her clothes, and often includes "nya" in her translations. This is likely due to Sensei's influence on her.
  • Bring My Brown Pants: When Takashi fires his laser attack and it just barely avoids her, she later admits on this.
  • Cat Smile: Her default facial expression.
  • Cool Big Sis: For Souya, of the adopted kind.
  • Cool Crown: Her headwear includes a very tiny crown. It would be easy to assume that it's just a fashion statement to go with her gothic lolita dress, but actually foreshadows her status as the princess of Riel.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Her choice of attire.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She loves everyone and everything to the point of refusing to include meat in the meals she makes, much to Souya's dismay. When she hears that the planet Sirius is getting attacked, she immediately requests to join Sensei on his mission to stop the massacre. This is despite the fact that her own planet was getting attacked by Sirius' forces not even minutes ago. The girl just doesn't like to see people suffer, no matter what side they are on. Considering that she is a telepath, this is completely justified, since she can feel the pain of others as if it were her own.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Never seen without those. She drops them after the Time Skip.
  • Nice Girl: Comes with being a pacifist after all.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Episode 7 reveals she's the princess of Riel, and joined Sensei to prepare herself for leading her people with the Nebula forces.
  • Support Party Member: She has psychic abilities, but never uses them offensively, instead generating barriers, jamming signals, or at most acting as a living power battery for Sensei.
  • Team Chef: She cooks for Sensei and Souya every day. Because she is a complete pacifist, she never includes meat.
  • Telepathy: She has the ability to listen to the psychic voices of other people, which she uses to translate Sensei and aid others. People with strong telepathic abilities like the Sirusians can be heard even if she doesn't want to, because their psychic voices are too strong.
  • Voice for the Voiceless: She translates Sensei's catlike speech for him.

"Sensei" Real name - Rashaverak

Voiced by: Rikiya Koyama

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sensei_5.jpg
A catlike alien who raised Souya alongside Ginko, and leader of the Pacifist Faction. He has the ability to transform into a mecha which Souya pilots, and through this form he fights the Grand Paladin.

  • Absurdly Sharp Claws: Claws made of energy, when in Cat Doping mode.
  • Badass Pacifist: He has saved numerous people already and is overall against fighting, unless necessary.
  • Big Good: His role in the series.
  • Cat Folk: A high-ranking member of an intergalactic alien federation that just so happens to look like a human-sized cat.
  • Covert Pervert: Despite his normally dignified attitude, he is secretly very interested in checking the underskirt of the Samidare and Anima figures they keep at their home.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: According to Generalissimo, Sensei has a habit of helping anyone and everyone in need, and this led to him saving Souya out of his own volition. Generalissimo admires this idealism, but feels that it cannot work out.
  • Deadly Upgrade: A downplayed variation — Cat Doping enhances his mecha mode, enabling flight among other things. The drawback is that it induces a hangover in both him and his pilot the day after its use. Sensei is often reluctant whenever Souya tries to use it.
  • Drop the Hammer: Giga Cat Hammer, one of his signature attacks, transforms his arms into massive mauls.
  • Laser Blade: His claws become long laser blades when under the effects of Cat Doping.
  • One-Winged Angel: Two tiers of it - one by consuming Cat Doping, the other by fusing with his spaceship.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: He is known only as Sensei (or, one time, Pacifist of Chaotic Black) until episode 10 reveals his real name.
  • Power Gives You Wings: Gains energy wings under the effects of Cat Doping.
  • Translation: "Yes": His meows can be translated into sentences of variable length.
  • The Voiceless: He only says "Nya" in varying tones, and Ginko translates accordingly. However, there are scenes where he is speaking in complete sentences.

    Grand Paladin 

General

  • Animal Motif: The Paladins' mechs are modeled after animals, and they are named accordingly.
    • Tiger: Hideo Torai
    • Rabbit: Miu Inaba
    • Bear: Harumi Kumashiro
    • Sheep: Yousuke Hitsujitani
    • Mouse: Seigi Nezuya
    • Bird: Benika Takatori
    • Dragon: Takashi Ryuuzouji

Takashi Ryūzōji

Voiced by: Kenji Nomura

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/takashi_3.jpg

The leader and founder of Grand Paladin. He wants to defend humanity for invaders, and use his newfound power to impose his idea of justice.

  • Alien Among Us: Takezō tells Yousuke that Takashi actually fell from space as a baby and they took care of him since. He then immediately backs up on his words and tries to pretend it was a joke. It's not.
  • Badass Armfold: Adopts this position all the time while in control of the fight.
  • The Comically Serious: More than a few times. Benika recalls him using steel rods to find psychic users, he is completely deadpan in telling Souya he doesn't understand the words his own father left him before dead, and in general he faces the quirkiness of his dad without changing expression.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: His first fight against Souya has him beating the kid and defeating him easily.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Anime version. Beating him is supposedly Souya's final goal at the start of the series. He gets defeated on episode six after a lengthy battle, giving room for the war against the sealing faction.
  • Evil Redhead: Though calling him evil might be a stretch; he is definitely ruthless.
  • Flaming Hair: Both his hair and eyebrows are shaped like this.
  • For Great Justice: His main goal is to use his power to unify the world's concept of justice, thus imposing his ideals on humanity and ending strife (or better said, effectively punishing it).
  • Happily Adopted: Implied to be the case with his family. Both his father and mother love him much.
  • Hellish Pupils: He has dragon-looking eyes. Appropriate since he seems to be some sort of figment of the Dragon himself.
  • Les Collaborateurs: An inverted trope. Instead of being a human who chooses to side with the alien invaders, he is really a member of an alien race who opted to protect humanity against them. Of course, he only does this so he can subjugate humanity his way rather than Nebula's way.
  • Knight Templar: His goals and attitude are certainly this.
  • One-Winged Angel: Much like Kumashiro, the dragon power starts turning him into a miniature version of the dragon during his fight against the Generalissimo and Souya... but unlike the former, who becomes a mindless, voiceless beast, he remains in full control of his dragon form. This foreshadows his close connection to the original Dragon.
  • Reincarnation: Implied to be something of the sort for the Dragon, most likely a fragment of him that landed on Earth as a human.
    • Later confirmed as the Dragon wakes up and reminisces about his life as a human.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Towards Nebula. He calls out on them acting like a parent guiding their child when in truth they are just forcing their beliefs on humanity. Of course, he plans to do exactly the same, but at least he is completely sincere about it.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He admits that once Nebula is dealt with, he intends to take over the world to bring peace and prosperity.

Hideo Torai

Voiced by: Yuichiro Umehara

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/torai.jpg

A idealistic, noble firefighter that defends Earth as a member of Grand Paladin.

  • Facial Markings: Three spots under his eye.
  • Ideal Hero: An idealistic, well rounded, good natured young man who always tries to help others. He gives an impression that he'd be the protagonist should the story focus on Grand Paladin.
  • The Leader: Becomes the leader of the remaining Paladins that defend Earth after Takashi dies, after Benika tips him off to humanity's latent psychic potential.
  • Megaton Punch: His Signature Move post-timeskip is to form an energy aura around his Armor's fist before unleashing a tremendous punch.
  • Missing Mom: He lost his mother in a fire.
  • Nice Guy: Torai's a very upstanding guy. He offers a bun for Souya when he was training and even volunteered to defend the city against Benika when Souya had lost all motivation.
  • The Worf Effect: Torai is the first of the Grand Paladin defeated, and later revealed to be the strongest individual fighter. The rest of the Grand Paladin ends up working in pairs so that Souya cannot ambush them alone.

Miu Inaba

Voiced by: Hitomi Ohwada

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/miu_9.jpg

A young little girl who is obsessed with strength.

  • Badass Adorable: A cute little girl who practices Judo and pilots a mecha.
  • Break the Haughty: She is obsessed with strength and mocks Torai for losing. Of course then, she is the second Paladin Souya defeats.
  • Cute Bruiser: She's a Judo practitioner despite being the shortest of the Grand Paladin pilots.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Her haircut.
  • Rolling Attack: Her Signature Move, Psychic Spiral Break, sends her Photon Armor rolling towards the enemy at breakneck speeds.
  • The Social Darwinist: At the start, but she does get better after being defeated by Souya and overcoming her sealing.
  • Tempting Fate: She mocks Torai for losing against Souya and calls him the weakest of the bunch. Naturally, Souya makes quick work of her in the same episode.

Harumi Kumashiro

Voiced by: Mai Fuchigami

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/harumi_4.jpg

Miu's best friend. A tall girl with a meek personality.

Takezō Ryūzōji

Voiced by: Motomu Kiyokawa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/takezou.jpg

Takashi's father. An easygoing old man who enjoys eating, and napping.

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: His true power involves a katana that even poses a serious threat to a doped-up Sensei. When he's really giving his all, he can even cleave through the Generalissimo's starship mecha!
  • Badass Grandpa: The oldest member of Grand Paladin and quite possibly the strongest as it turns out he was suppressing his true power all along. He is even able to harm the Generalissimo's starship-sized mecha!
  • Big Damn Heroes: Jumps in and cuts off Generalissimo's arm during the dogs battle against Souya, effectively giving the Pacifist faction the opportunity they need to win the war.
  • Big Eater: To the point that several steak houses are out of stock after he pays them a visit.
  • Bumbling Dad: Averted. He might look like this, but he has been supporting Takashi since the very beginning and he knows very well what he is doing. He is also one of the strongest fighters of the group.
  • Cool Old Guy: A relaxed old man who hides his true strength.
  • Cool Sword: His Psychokinetic Armor can generate one capable of cutting through anything.
  • Dirty Old Man: His (first) sealing fantasy involves lots of young, beautiful women serving him food. However, his devotion to his late wife is much greater, as when the second sealing fantasy shows her to him, he comments that this one was much harder to break out of.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: He might well be the actual strongest member of Grand Paladin aside from the Director, but he didn't use his true power until his clash with Souya. For context, Souya takes out Torai - supposedly the strongest non-Director member of Grand Paladin - in his very first fight. He fights Takezō much later, in Sensei's Doping Mode no less, and while he defeats him in a Single-Stroke Battle he was very visibly worried that it could just as easily have gone the other way.
  • Iaijutsu Practitioner: It's later revealed that he was a good swordsman, specializing in iaido. In hindsight, it's reflected in his fighting style.
  • Interspecies Adoption: Implied to be the case with Takashi, who might have not been completely human.
  • Killed Offscreen: After the Time Skip, he's passed away from choking on mochi.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: The first Paladin to actually do this. He effortlessly defeats the Sealing Device after indulging in his fantasies for a while and then gives Souya a considerable battle.
  • The Lost Lenore: His wife, Eiko. He supports Takashi's actions partly in memory of her.
  • Power-Strain Blackout: His Big Damn Heroes moment above involves him channeling most of his power into a BFS for his psychokinetic armor, and he passes out after the attack. The rest of Grand Paladin fear that he gave his life in the process, only to find out he's simply exhausted and asleep.
  • Single-Stroke Battle: How his fight against Souya ends, with him losing.
  • Tragic Keepsake: A picture of Eiko, a baby Takashi and him, which he keeps in his living room.

Seigi "Judgment" Nezuya

Voiced by: Shinsuke Sugawara

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nezuya.jpg

A member of Tamakagahara's Occult Club who befriends Souya, and has a knack for dramatic poses.

  • Cloud Cuckoolander: His entire personality, up to always carrying a book upside down, and posing constantly during battles.
  • Death of Personality: After being sealed, he completely changes into a blank, relaxed demeanor.
  • He’s Back: After Souya unseals everyone on Earth, he decides to abandon his fantasy and returns as himself to see the final battle between the Pacifist and the Sealing factions.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: If his sealing fantasy is anything to go by, Judgement just really wants to be like the protagonist of an isekai harem manga.
  • The Unfought: Souya never gets to fight him, something he himself points out.
  • Shock and Awe: During the final battle, he shows the ability to release electricity from his psychokinetic armor. Not unlike a certain other mouse-like entity.

Benika Takatori

Voiced by: Shizuka Ishigami

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/c454359a_copy.jpg
An ex-policewoman who wants to save the Earth from danger.

  • Badass in a Nice Suit: A superpowered woman in a suit.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Joins the Sealing Faction because she fears that humanity could get Drunk with Power should they realize their psychic potential.
  • Freudian Excuse: The man she loved (Yousuke's brother) was shot to death by a normal teenager who felt addicted to the power of having a gun. Because of this she fears humanity's potential when they awake their psychic powers.
  • Kick Chick: She is a girl and one of her favorite moves is dropkicking the enemy with her Photon Armor's bird-like legs.
  • Love Triangle: With Yousuke and his older brother.
  • Loving a Shadow: She is in love with Yousuke's older brother who died on a mission several years ago.
  • Red Is Heroic: Prior to her face heel turn.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: She resigns from Grand Paladin in disgust after learning of Takashi's ultimate goal and the dangerous effects of pushing one's psychic power excessively.
  • Sour Outside, Sad Inside: She is stern and rash, but clearly feels a lot of guilt and fear over what happened in her life and what's happening between the Earth and Nebula.
  • The Stoic: She is normally always calm and composed, be a front or not.
  • Strike Me Down with All of Your Hatred: Sort of. Her assault on Earth is very similar to what Yousuke's brother did against the kid with a weapon in her flashback; advancing slowly with her arms crossed, waiting to see how Earthlings react, whether they abuse their power or not. As Torai soon notices, she was actually hoping someone would come and stop her, which he gladly does.
  • You Remind Me of X: Torai reminds her of Yousuke's brother.

Yōsuke Hitsujitani

Voiced by: Kazuyuki Okitsu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yousuke.jpg

A somewhat indecisive man who is always following behind Benika.

  • All Love Is Unrequited: Clearly has feelings for Benika but it's one-sided. However, she slightly warms up to him later in the series.
  • Animal Stereotypes: A meek, gentle person who pretty much does whatever Benika tells him to do, it's unsurprising that his Photon Armor is modeled after a sheep. However, back him into a corner and you'll see his horns.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: After losing Benika, he decides to fight himself for the Sealing Faction. He easily defeats Torai, Miu and Kumashiro, then manages to Seal the entire planet in mere minutes by hugging it with his psychokinetic armor, fusing it with the sealing device. After Souya manages the wake them up, he defeats them again, and actually gives Souya a good fight before being punched into the sky.
  • Counting Sheep: His Animal Motif is the sheep, and he succeeds at sealing the human race, effectively putting the entire world asleep as he himself states.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Easily defeats Torai, Miu and Kumashiro once he fuses his Psychokinetic armor with the last Sealing Device.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Benika getting sealed during her fight is what tips him to fight to seal the Earth. His despair is so strong it translates into incredible strength for his psychokinetic armor.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Joins the sealing faction.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: He accomplishes in one chapter what Nebula couldn't do during the whole story. He can also understand what Kegurumians, like Generalissimo, say, which can mean that his psychic abilities are higher than it seems.
  • Love Triangle: With Benika and Yousuke's brother.
  • Nice Guy: Polite and worried about everyone. After most are defeated or leave the group, he still decides to stay simply to save Takezou in case he gets defeated by Souya.
  • One-Winged Angel: He fuses his psychokinetic armor with the last sealing device, turning it into a gigantic version of itself that easily defeats the other Paladins.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: The anime ending has him doing this gesture, highlighting his unfettered nature.
  • Shock and Awe: Gains the power of electricity when he fuses with his Sealing Device. You could call him an electric sheep.
  • Use Your Head: His last desperate attack against Souya is to ram at him, appropriately enough, given his Animal Motifs.
  • Undying Loyalty: For him Benika means more than the entire world, and he will follow her even if it means to become a villain.
  • Yes-Man: He appears to be this to Benika. The truth is however more complicated, and he is mostly acting for himself out of grief due to the loss of his older brother.
  • Villainous Breakdown: As much as you can call him a villain and not a broken man. The pacifist faction unsealing humanity and then declaring war against Nebula completely makes him snap.

    Nebula/Sealing Faction 

"Generalissimo" Real name - Karellen

Voiced by: Norio Wakamoto

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/generalissimo.jpg

The leader of Nebula. A dog-looking alien who commands the Sealing Devices that go to attack humanity.

  • Always Someone Better: He would have succeeded in defeating Sensei and Souya in a straight duel had Takezo not intervened. This is justified, as despite his impressive psychic power, Souya has effectively no combat training and has to rely on superior brute power and force of will to win battles, against an opponent evenly matched in terms of power and possessing the edge in actual combat experience, he fell short. It's only ironic, or perhaps fitting, that this warrior completely obsessed with fighting fairly would ultimately succumb to a cheap trick.
  • Anti-Villain: He is one of the show's major antagonists and his goal is effectively to seal Earth in a Lotus-Eater Machine. But he's only doing it to prevent humanity from becoming dangerous to other races, is unwilling to actually kill anyone, always fights fairly and is a Graceful Loser.
  • Beast Man: Just like Sensei, he is an animalistic alien that commands a faction of Nebula.
  • Big NO: An impressive one when he believes Sensei has been lost forever in hyperspace.
  • The Cape: Deconstructed. In his own mind, he is a hero saving humanity from themselves and the rest of the universe from humanity... even though he must take away free will to do it. His sense of honor emphasizes this mindset, as does the fact that in Doping Mode, instead of energy wings like Sensei's, he gains a literal energy cape.
  • Foil: To Sensei. Two mysterious talking animals with similar powers, but completely different ideals. The Dog-Cat Motif only cements this further.
  • Four-Star Badass: Holds the rank of Generalissimo and is more than willing to take to the battlefield personally when needed.
  • Friendly Rivalry: With Sensei. At least on his side.
  • The Leader: Of Nebula. On the final episodes, he commands the entire operation to defeat the Dragon.
  • Let's Fight Like Gentlemen: For someone who makes a big deal out of being a pragmatist, he makes an even bigger deal of fighting fairly, even at the expense of tactical soundness. He goes so far as to order his right-hand woman to warn Takashi about Nebula's invasion instead of taking the planet by surprise, because it didn't sit right with him to take a planet that is unable to resist (although it may also have been at least partially to investigate Takashi's nature as the Dragon's possible reincarnation). This implies that he is far from being as cynical as he makes himself out to be, but still feels that sealing humanity in a ceaseless dream is the only way of preventing them from ending up like the people of Sirius.
  • Motivated by Fear: He wants to seal Earth because he fears a catastrophe like Sirius happening again. He is far less idealistic than Sensei and wants to do what must be done.
  • Noble Demon: Despite being an antagonist, he has an extremely strong sense of honor and, unlike the Dragon, is not willing to massacre populations for the sake of his ideals.
  • One-Winged Angel: He has pretty much the exact same moveset than Sensei, except dog-themed and focused on shooting energy rather than in melee hammer combat. This includes then of course a doping move that gives him wings, and fusing with his own spaceship to become an enormous robot.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: He is known only as The Generalissimo (or, one time, Sealer of Fastidious White) until episode 10 reveals his real name.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Best shown when Souya comes back from his BSOD and defies Nebula. He acts with indignation but Shiraishi soon notices his tail is waggling with happiness.
    • Happens again in the finale, where Generalissimo outwardly furious that Sensei defied death and returned from subspace, only to show his tail wagging intensely.
  • The World Is Not Ready: His excuse for sealing the Earth is that humans cannot be trusted with the Psychic Powers they will soon start developing and will inevitably become a warmongering planet, like Sirius. He likens it to "taking a loaded gun away from a child". Takashi, however, calls him out on this, believing that the Generalissimo is simply arrogant and disdainful of humans.
  • Translation: "Yes": Like with Sensei, he speaks in single barks that can be translated into sentences of varying length. Although he is perfectly capable of speaking normally, as shown when he bursts into anger/excitement that Souya is challenging the Sealing Faction.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: As leader of Nebula's sealing faction, he wishes to enforce peace in the galaxy by robbing humanity of their fighting spirit. Those sealed lose their aggression, but also their ability to feel passion.
  • Worthy Opponent: To Sensei, who he admits he admires.

Kogane Shiraishi

Voiced by:Saori Goto

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shiraishi_4.jpg

Generalissimo's personal secretary. She is introduced in the story as Takashi's secretary, having infiltrated Grand Paladin in order to give information to both sides as to make the battle more fair.

  • Animal Motifs: Dogs. Her skintight battlesuit even includes a dog tail.
  • Comically Missing the Point: At one point she stops caring about spying Souya and seems more interested in interrupting his relationship with Takamagahara.
  • The Dragon: The Generalissimo's closest personal assistant, who also lends him her strength in battle and "pilots" him.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Played with. She assumes Souya is fighting for selfless heroism and is flabbergasted when he reveals it's for revenge. The second she tries to tell him to keep "personal problems" out of world saving, he's quick to remind her that he's getting revenge for the millions of innocent people her side let die. She can understand the abstract, selfless love Nebula preaches, but the personal love slips her mind.
  • Foil: Being the cute animal-themed assistant that translates for her alien partner, she is one to Ginko. She is also one to Souya to some extent, as she is the one to "pilot" the Generalissimo, something Ginko does not do.
  • Glamour: She is able to disguise her appearance and look younger, which she uses to seduce Souya in order to study him. This apparently can trick the eyes, but not the touch, as Souya could feel she was taller than she appeared to be in her middle-schooler form.
  • Hypnotic Eyes: She has powers of hypnosis to allow her to effortlessly infiltrate any environment.
  • Mission Control: Serves as one to Grand Paladin, coordinating them in their missions against the Nebula Weapons.
  • The Mole: She's a Nebula agent posing as a secretary in Grand Paladin, and in the perfect position to fight Ryuzoji once the rest of Grand Paladin is disarmed. Due to the Generalissimo's obsession with fairness, she is also intentionally a mole on Nebula's side as she assists Grand Paladin.
  • Not So Stoic: Her calm secretary attitude is just a facade that she loses once she returns to Nebula´s side.
  • Voice for the Voiceless: She translates for Generalissimo.
  • Sexy Secretary: For Generalissimo, while also being her pilot when he goes mecha, much like Souya is for Sensei.

    Other characters 

Nozomi Takamagahara

Voiced by: Sayaka Harada

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nozomi_86.jpg

Souya´s class president, and a friend of his. Very interested in aliens.

  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She is barely able to keep her composure when Shiraishi attempts to hypnotize Souya and nearly loses it when he admits he found Shiraishi to be cute.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Implied when she is not affected by Shiraishi's Hypnosis, something Souya falls victim to. Post-Timeskip, her psychic powers develop at a level that surpasses Souya himself.
  • Immune to Mind Control: Shiraishi's hypnosis powers have zero effect on her. This foreshadows Nozomi's greater psychic potential. After the Time Skip, her powers are gauged to be stronger than Souya's.
  • Meganekko: Fits this trope so well, that Souya calls her "Megane-Sama" before fully remembering her name.
  • Morality Pet: To Souya. Despite his morally ambiguous goals, he cares deeply for her well-being and she informs him that his actions have actually saved many lives (Which surprises him greatly as his actions are selfish in nature)
  • Nice Girl: Always kind and gentle towards Souya.
  • Psychic Link: With Souya. They can find each others locations just with their psychic powers, which really helps once he is left stranded in his home planet by the end of the series.
  • Satellite Love Interest: To Souya. Her character early in the series helps Souya be accustomed to living a normal life on earth and is essentially his only confidant aside from Sensei and Ginko.
  • Secret Keeper: Souya confides the truth about his identity when she corners him. He attempts to write this off as a joke, but she sees through it and vows to keep it a secret regardless.

Dragon Real name - Azrabarakura

An ex member of Nebula who laid waste to Souya's homeplanet in order to punish them for their attacks on other planets. He was defeated by the entire Nebula and banished from time and space. The fragments of his body are being used by the members of Grand Paladin in order to activate Psychic Powers.

He is later revealed to be the last of the People of Paradise who still retains a corporeal form, and his enormous dragon-like form is due to having manifested many layers of psychokinetic armor. Beneath all that is thought to be a humanoid.

  • Ascend To A Higher Place Of Existence: After he is defeated and talked to inside the storm, he ascends and joins his brother with the other People of Paradise too.
  • Big Bad: Ultimately the final villain to defeat and the main source of conflict in the series.
  • Breath Weapon: Of course a dragon would breath fire. Or lasers.
  • Deader Than Dead: Supposedly, Generalissimo and the rest of Nebula banished him out of space and time. In reality however, he managed to land behind the Moon and hibernated there, recovering his power.
  • Defector from Decadence: In his eyes, his life as Takashi is this, as he had rejected already Nebula´s ideal of Love since it obstructed his justice, and wanted to defend the Earth from Sealing.
  • Determinator: He fights the Sirusians and the entire Nebula organization until his last breath, proclaiming his goals are righteous.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: As he is about to die, he remembers Takezō and Eiko and seems grateful to them for taking care of his human avatar.
  • Flunky Boss: He is able to summon hundreds of smaller copies of him to attack Nebula during the final battle.
  • I Choose to Stay: He is revealed to be a member of the People Of Paradise before they achieved their immaterial bodies, who decided to stay in physical form to dispense his justice on other races. By defeating him, the People of Paradise want to integrate him with them again.
  • Kaiju: The Dragon is massive, able to dwarf almost every other character easily. His size is described in-series as being eight kilometers long (close to the height of the Himalayan Mountains).
  • Knight Templar: He sought to end the Siriusians' invasion of Riel... by exterminating the Siriusians, including the civilians. He justifies this by labeling the entire race as "evil".
  • Load-Bearing Boss: Of sorts. He has his entire city built inside of his psychokinetic armor/dragon body. Killing him would of course mean the city would crumble in pieces. This however doesn't happen in the series: the city is destroyed before he himself dies, as it cannot withstand the time-space storm he is engulfed in.
  • Lightning Bruiser: As expected, the Dragon can tank pretty much absurd levels of damage, and lay waste to entire planets; but more impressive than that its probably the fact that it can outmaneuver the Paladins in space, to the point that they cannot reach him if he uses full speed, despite his size.
  • Nested Mouths: Close examination of the Dragon's mouth reveals several rows of teeth, showing how it's comprised of multiple layers of psychokinetic armor.
  • One-Man Army: He alone can lay waste to an entire planet's colonies and space fleets. It takes all of Nebula's might to seal him away.
  • Plant Person: His true form is finally revealed in the final episode. It seems to be made out of vines or at least vine-like hair.
  • Posthumous Character: Subverted — he's thought to have died between his siege on Sirius and the start of the story, but later found to be hibernating on the dark side of the moon.
  • Powered Armor: His entire body is actually this. He is revealed to be way more smaller and human-like inside of it.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: With the People of Paradise. They are calm, collected, kind and merciful, while the Dragon is a knight templar bent on dispensing punishment to evildoers who easily goes into rage.
  • Shock and Awe: His primary power, both as Takashi and in his true form.
  • Stealth Pun: He is a dragon and he is willing to destroy an entire planet, including its civilians, for the inhumane acts of its military. You could say his sense of justice is quite draconian! (Yes, yes, the expression is derived from the name Dracon and not the word dragon, but still!)
  • Strike Me Down with All of Your Hatred: The Dragon attempts this on Souya, in the hopes that Souya gives in to his hatred for injustice and becomes just like him.
  • Super Empowering: The vials of gray sand used by Grand Paladin are actually from parts of his body (or rather his psychokinetic armor).
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Much like Takashi, his goals are, at least, not evil aligned. Is just that he has lost any consideration for anything that isn't dispensing justice.

Person of Paradise

The Person of Paradise, as he appears to Souya
An individual of the oldest race in the universe, who guides Souya towards a new goal after the defeat of Grand Paladin.

  • Ascended to a Higher Plane of Existence: His entire race cast aside their material bodies a million years ago, and they can only be perceived by select individuals.
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: When manifesting to Souya, it takes the form of his brother.
  • Invisible to Normals: His entire race has no corporeal form, and only visible to people of their choosing; Souya, in this one's case. Nozomi can later see him through Souya due to her strong psychic abilities.
  • Sufficiently Advanced Alien: The Nebula aliens' technology borders on reality-warping, but even Sensei is shocked when Souya says he met one of the "people of paradise." They're the oldest race in the Universe, and capable of supposedly impossible feats such as un-sealing the Earth.
