The characters of Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs.
Saber Rider (Richard Lancelot)
- Ascended Extra: To some degree. In the original he was a rather important character but not The Protagonist, whereas here he is The Hero.
- Celibate Hero: He's a mix of this and Chaste Hero. He did have three Girls Of The Week, but OTOH he was oblivious to April's crush on him — and when he once saved her and she tried to kiss him, he was totally baffled.
- Chick Magnet: More than one girl (including his teammate April) crushed on him. He was generally Married to the Job and Oblivious to Love, but the very few times he did give in, the girl ended up in danger ( and at least once she turned out to be a Honey Trap, but he saw through her easily)...
- Heroes Prefer Swords: His saber was his Weapon of Choice, whether it was a beam one or not.
- The Leader: He's the unquestioned "top sword" of the Star Sheriffs—in contrast to Sei Juushi Bismarck, where Shinji/Fireball led the team. World Events Productions had to rewrite and re-edit some episodes to beef up his role.
- Steven Ulysses Perhero: Whether it's a Code Name or his real name, Saber Rider is about as blatant a hero moniker as Speed Racer.
Colt (Bill Willcox)
- Voiced by: Kazuhiko Inoue (original), Townsend Coleman (English), Martín Soto (Latin American Spanish)
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: His attraction to the Hot Teacher Tsundere Robin. They get hitched.
- Bounty Hunter: What he was before being recruited.
- Chivalrous Pervert: Though he does become more loyal when he's paired up with the strongwilled Hot Teacher Robin.
- The Gunslinger: Complete with Improbable Aiming Skills.
- Jumped at the Call: He became a Star Sheriff rather eagerly—and with good reason. The Outriders murdered his parents while he watched helplessly.
- The Tease: He's quite the flirt. However, Robin finally managed to tame him.
Fireball (Shinji Hikari)
- Ace Pilot: Was a popular one before being recruited, and his driving skills get him out of tight situations more than once.
- Demoted to Extra: Again, to some degree. He "loses" his post of The Hero to Saber here, but still remains one of the most important characters.
- Disappeared Dad: In the original, his dad died in an Heroic Sacrifice. In this one, he might be alive but trapped in the Vapor Zone, which would be a Fate Worse than Death.
- Gatling Good: On top of his racing car, there's hidden mini-gun that fire streams of energy bursts.
- Hot-Blooded: Very much so.
- Just a Kid: He's younger than his teammates—and they never let him forget it.
- Macross Missile Massacre: His racing car has two hidden launchers and all missiles can be fired simultaneously.
- Red Is Heroic: He's one of the good guys, he drives a red car, and both his casual outfit and Star Sheriff uniform have a red and white color scheme.
- Second Love: April's.
April Eagle (Marianne Louvre)
- Voiced by: Chie Koujirou (original), Pat Musick (English), Marina Huerta (Latin American Spanish)
- Badass Adorable: A cute young woman with a knack for electronics and quite the fighting skills.
- The Chick: Quite an odd case. Though more independent than a Distressed Damsel, she is too young to be Team Mom or Cool Big Sis, and aside from building Ramrod (and Nova), she is also less active than the standard smart guy.
- Daddy's Girl: She's quite close to her father, Commander Eagle. So when he's kidnapped, she's not happy.
- Hopeless Suitor: To Saber, who was even hilariously confused when she tried to kiss him once. Her feelings switch from him to Fireball later.
- Pink Means Feminine: April is the only girl in the team and happen to wear a pink spacesuit.
- Smurfette Principle: The only female member of the Star Sheriffs and the only major female character of the series.
- Teen Genius: She designed Ramrod before turning 18.note She also was a very talented tennis player; according to Saber, she's pro-level and would've become a tennis star if she hadn't joined the Star Sheriffs.
- Tragic Bromance: She and a Broken Bird girl named Trista become a genderflipped version.
Commander Eagle (Commander Charles Louvre)
- Voiced by: Hiroshi Itou (original), Peter Cullen (English), Carlos Magaña (Latin American Spanish)
- Big Good: The sponsor and mentor of the team, as well as April's dad.
- Parents in Distress: His capture at the hands of the Vapor Beings drives a good part of the plot.
Jesse Blue (Perios)
- Attempted Rape: He tries this on April. For all the Macekre performed on the series, this one was an addition of the American adaptation.
- Love Makes You Evil: His Unrequited Love for April, plus his ambition, kick off his FaceHeel Turn.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: His dub voice is an imitation of Jack Nicholson.
- Stalker with a Crush: For April.
- Tall, Dark, and Snarky: He's quite tall, with dark blue hair, and very dry wit.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has blue hair.
- Voiced by: ???? (original), Peter Cullen (English), Emilio Guerrero (Latin American Spanish)
- By the Power of Grayskull!: Sort of. Ramrod chants this Battle Cry whenever transforming into robot mode:Head 'em up, move 'em out! Power stride... and ready to ride!
- Chest Blaster: Ramrod has many cannons that can be fired from its chest.
- Meaningful Name: The Americanized name possibly originates from a cowboy slang referring to the person-in-charge of an outfit, the leader of the pack, or the person who gets the job done.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Ramrod's dub voice is an imitation of John Wayne.
- Transformation Sequence: One that makes it go from a Cool Spaceship to an Humongous Mecha.
- Voiced by: Seizo Kato (original), Peter Cullen (English), Eduardo Borja (Latin American Spanish)
- Big Bad: Indeed.
- Evil Sounds Deep: Nemesis' voice is deep, courtesy of Peter Cullen.
- Malevolent Masked Men: He wears a mask all the time but, his true form isn't humanoid.
