Guard Team

Voiced by: Naoki Bando (Guard Star/Guardion), Naoki Makishima (Guard Fire), Kouji Tsujitani (Guard Rescue), Kōji Totani (Guard Wing/Super Guardion)

Fighbird's compatriots in the Space Police. They all disguise themselves as vehicles so as to better acclimate with humanity. Guard Star is a police car, Guard Fire is a firetruck, Guard Rescue is an ambulance, and Guard Wing is a plane.

  • Aloof Ally: Guard Wing tends to go off on his own most of the time.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Guard Wing has the gumption to proclaim himself as the strongest member of the Space Police when he's introduced... and then gets his ass handed to him in the next episode.
  • Berserk Button: Having his hard work insulted is one for Guard Fire. When Akira, a friend of Kenta's, gets unfairly upset with Guard Fire for not saving his toy cars in time, the firetruck is so insulted that he goes so far as to scold the kid by sticking the front end of his vehicle mode into Akira's third story hospital room. Guard Wing's arrogance is another one.
  • Cool Car: Guard Star, Guard Fire and Guard Rescue.
  • Cool Jet: Guard Wing, natch.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Super Guardion gives all of his life force to Fighbird so he can beat Draias.
  • Hot-Blooded: Guard Fire.
  • Jerkass: Guard Wing, to the point that both Kenta and Guard Fire wonder why he's even on the team.

Baron Team

Voiced by: Kōzō Shioya (Ace Baron/Thunder Baron)

Another group of Fighbird's friends in the force, they also disguise themselves with vehicle modes; Ace Baron as a tank, Road Baron as a trailer, Drill Baron as drill (duh), Aqua Baron as a submarine, and Sky Baron as a jet.


    Amano Family 

Kenta Amano

Voiced by: Kazue Ikura

A boy in fourth grade who frequently accompanies Katori on his Space Police missions.

  • Cheerful Child: It's rare to see this kid in low spirits.
  • Does Not Like Spam: It's revealed in episode 12 that he hates fish, though he changes his mind when he tries fried sardines.
  • Invisible Parents: His mom appears in a couple of episodes, but his dad is neither seen nor mentioned.
  • Tag Along Kid: He often goes with Katori on his heroic escapades, though he doesn't get involved in actual fights. Instead he usually helps evacuate civilians or runs interference.

Haruka Amano

Voiced by: Rie Iwatsubo

Kenta's cousin.

  • Adorably Precocious Child: She's quite mature and responsible for her age, which isn't all that surprising considering who she lives with.
  • Team Mom: She cooks, she cleans, and she apparently looks after her grandfather's finances.
  • Invisible Parents: Her parents are working in Germany and appear for all of one episode.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years
  • Women Are Wiser: She's much more sensible than her cousin and grandfather, and the most likely to call out grown men when they're being foolish.

Professor Hiroshi Amano

Voiced by: Ichirō Nagai

Kenta and Haruka's grandfather who serves as their guardian. He is the scientist who created Katori's android body.

Draias & Allies

    Draias & Allies 


Voiced by: Daisuke Gōri

The main antagonist. He works with Dr. Jango for nefarious purposes.

Dr. Jango

Voiced by: Junpei Takiguchi

An evil scientist who allies himself with Draias.

  • Card-Carrying Villain: He takes pride in being an evil bastard and when called out if he has no shame in trampling on his own kin, other humans, he said that he doesn't care.
  • It's All About Me: All Jango cares is that he stands on the top of everyone, ruling them and making them suffer for his own amusement while others worship him. He hijacked a Nobel Prize so he could hog all the titles for himself, and that was just the beginning. And if he found a safe way to replace Draias and make him on the top of the evil chain, he'll do so.
  • Evil Genius: He's the provider of most of the devices for Draias to use and gives him his headquarters. Additionally, he wants everyone in the world to acknowledge that he's the most (evil) genius of all.
  • Evil Old Folks: Notable that he's the only evil human being in a setting where Humans Are Good.
  • Mad Scientist: For a major part, his science devolve into stealing some of Prof. Amano's works, give it an evil spin and claim it to be his, while harming humans while he's at it.
  • Smug Snake: He has a tendency to smugly tell humans or his other victims to suffer his wrath and his evil plans, and liked to talk big in front of Fighbird. But Fighbird always thwarts his plan, sending him packing and if Draias, Zol or Shura caught wind of it, they tend to mock him.
  • The Starscream: He decides to work against Draias halfway in one episode, mostly because he doesn't like how the galactic overlord has decided to be a more active participant.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Jango is extremely evil and he has no problem with harming children if it means accomplishing his goals, anything is fair game.

Zol and Shura

Voiced by: Yu Shimaka (Zol), Kiyoyuki Yanada (Shura)
