    Dr. Hell's Army 

Dr. Hell

Voiced by: Kazuhiko Kishino (JPN), Gerardo Alonso (Latin-American Spanish)

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: And no, it is never explained why he turns blue between the expedition and the present.
  • Bad Boss: For a super robot big bad this is pretty much averted. When a subordinate admits to failing or making a mistake he seems to be pretty patient for a while. Unlike the original, though, he manages to get through an entire series without berating Ashura.
  • Big Bad
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast
  • Obviously Evil: To the point that Tsubasa picked up on his plans for world domination early on in the Bardos Expedition.
  • Statingthe Simple Solution: In the Saint-ism LP of Super Robot Wars Z2: Saisei-Hen Scenario 47
    Dr. Hell: …You can come out now.
    Gestalt: Your obsession with Photon Power is…amusing.
    Dr. Hell: This King of Hell isn’t enough to fight the Ba’al with…only with Photon Power can we survive!
    Sayuri: Do you think those three clowns will even succeed?
    Dr. Hell: They will live up to my expectations! I have high hopes for Baron Ashura.
    Gestalt: And why the elaborate call for a showdown? If you wanted the Photon Power so badly, you could’ve taken the Photon Labs while ZEXIS were dealing with Insalaum!
    Dr. Hell: You fools could never hope to understand my plans!
    Sayuri: Perhaps. In any case good luck (not!) for the battle.
    Gestalt: You might need it more than you think! Mwahaha!
  • Villain Team-Up: Works with the Gishin Empire in Super Robot Wars Z2.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Subverted, His idea of saving the world from the Mycenae Empire is to conquer it first and rule it with an iron fist.
    • However, Dr. Hell's acquisition of the Knowledge in Saisei-Hen allowed him to discover the location of the sunken Bardos Island begin plumbing its depths for the secrets of the Mycenae Empire. His goal is ultimately to conquer the world and unite it under his rule, in order to utilize all of mankind's means together to fight the enemy.

Baron Ashura

Voiced by: Koya Ishitobi (male) and Kaori Yamagata (female) (JPN); Adriana Casas (both, Latin-American Spanish)

  • The Dragon
  • Dragon with an Agenda: After The Reveal that Dr. Hell dissolved the other halves of Tristan and Isoulde. After Dr. Hell is dead in Saisei-Hen, Ashura meets Gaiou again. They call him by his former name ("Dimensional General") and says that they are now Ashura and not Triston/Isolde. They then go off to prepare for the coming fight with Baal, which they think Gaiou will be taking part of. Gaiou has other ideas.
  • Driven to Suicide: With a twist.
  • I Cannot Self-Terminate: Dr Hell took some precautions to ensure that Ashura wouldn't kill themselves. Specifically to prevent them from freeing the Mycenae Empire.
  • Thanatos Gambit: In the final episode, they kills themselves to free the Mycenae Empire.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Between being constantly tortured for their failures, having to watch their mechanical beasts (actually Mycenae Soldiers) die, watching their whole civilization being destroyed, finding out that they were betrayed by the man they pledged loyalty to and seeing that their current freakish appearance was due to the doctor having a weird diabolical moment, and being verbally abused by both sides, you'd feel sorry for them too after a while. Still doesn't excuse them being an evil mass-murdering henchmen and possibly instigating the Mycenae Empire Invasion at the end though (and their past lives are nothing to sing about either, considering which side they were on).

Count Brocken

Voiced by: Minoru Inaba (JPN), José Alfredo Camacho and Salvador Reyes (Latin-American Spanish)

  • Action Bomb: His doppelgangers can self destruct.
  • Dirty Old Man: There's a very funny scene in Scenario 47 of Saisei-Hen. If you attack Count Brocken with a woman, he'll make a comment about opening their (the mecha's) cockpits to see the beauties inside, and suddenly, a lot of ZEXIS girls will start calling him names, like Womanizer, Pervert, Weirdo. Kallen even wanted to treat Brocken's head like a soccer ball. Brocken was surprised at these reactions to his statement.
    Brocken: Geh-heh-heh, that one's piloted by a girl, huh?
    Brocken: Punishing you is gonna be SO MUCH FUN. First I'll peel off the cockpit armor, and then...
    Lunamaria: Enemy of womankind!
    Marguerite: Lewd men such as you deserve little mercy!
    Aoi: You're the one who's gonna be punished!
    Sylvia: Prepare yourself, Count Pervert!
    Kallen: I'm gonna play soccer with your head!
    Sara: No, no, I'm going to turn it upside down and use it as a flowerpot!
    Yoko: I could use it for target practice...
    Noin: No, I'll feed it to my dog.
    Sumeragi: I hereby authorize all of you to carry out those actions.
    Brocken: Wha-WHAT?! I haven't even done anything yet!
  • Doppelgänger Attack
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: He is an undead decapitated cyborg Nazi... and a soccer ball.
  • Those Wacky Nazis
