Main Characters

     Common Tropes 
  • Animal Theme Naming: Elephantus, Voltkatze, and Leopard. And after Episode 3, Alouette (skylark) and Galina (hen) join the crew.
  • Beauty, Brains, and Brawn: Leopard, Voltkatze and Elephantus, respectively. It's also possible to replace Alouette with Leopard for Beauty and Galina with Voltkatze for Brains.
  • Becoming the Mask: If only ever slowly. At first they didn't really act like their counterparts, and even in Episode 6 when they weren't making any confrontations with the Yattermen, they were more concerned about the consequences of their journey than acting like the Gang. But even so, they start to show multiple characteristics of them. It could be due to studying Leopard's Yatterman kids book, but over the course of the series they aren't even shown using it anymore. Ultimately played with in the end, as Galina and Alouette become the new Yattermen, but the Doronbo disband and live a peaceful life in the countryside.
  • Chromatic Arrangement: Like their ancestors, Leopard, Voltkatze and Elephantus wear red, green, and blue respectively.
  • Death Seeker: The brief series recap in Episode 10 reveal that both Voltkatze and Elephantus were this when they first got to Yatter Kingdom. They didn't care whether or not they died getting Leopard over there, so long as Leopard was happy with the whole ordeal. Their attitudes quickly changed after some point.
  • Defiant to the End: All of them aren't willing to back down from their statements against Lord Yattterman/ Lord Dokurobei, even when they're facing execution.
  • Generation Xerox: Where to start... The Terrible Trio still consists of a cute bossy girl and her older but sillier companions, they're still fighting against the Yattermen (although they're on the wrong side of the law), and most of all, they're still good people deep down. Going into specifics, our Doronjo has a crush on the Gan Takada stand in, she smokes from a (bubble) pipe, and she still doesn't do much fighting, if any at all; the other two are 25 and 29 years old, and are fiercely loyal to their beautiful leader no matter how old she may be.
    • Galina and Alouette on the other hand are still as good as their counterparts in the past, with Galina taking charge as the leader of the two and taking up a knack for toys while Alouette is really in tune with wildlife and is motivated by love and determination.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Galina, Allouette, and Leopard all share this trait.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: Three generations here! The 25 and 29-year olds Voltkatze and Elephantus ally themselves with the 17-year olds Galina and Alouette, who in turn make friends with 9 year old Leopard. Voltkatze and Elephantus were also family friends of Leopard through Dorothy, her mother, before being Promoted to Parent.
  • Legacy Character: All of them serve as one for their ancestors.
  • Mentors: The entire team functions as this to Galina. Elephantus works at making him stronger, Voltkatze inspires him to start building and planning machines of his own, and Leopard inspires him to become more proactive.
  • Parental Abandonment: Leopard's parents are dead, Alouette's father and Galina's parents were killed in labor camp, and Voltkatze and Elephantus' parents were never mentioned.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Galina and Alouette.
  • Redeeming Replacement: This Doronbo Gang is firmly on the side of good, unlike the legendary thieves their ancestors were. And after the huge blow that Dokurobei gave to Gan and Ai's reputations, Galina and Alouette are becoming this in the eyes of the Yatter Kingdom.
  • Terrible Trio: Invoked by Leopard, Voltkatze, and Elephantus, as they take on the roles of their ancestors to rebel against the Yatter Kingdom.
  • Three Plus Two: From episode 3 on, the Doronbos are joined by Galina and Alouette.

     The Doronbo Gang 

Leopard / Doronjo
"We need to give Yatterman a good forehead flicking- no, we need to take Yatterman down!"
Voiced By: Eri Kitamura

A little girl who originally lives on a farm with her mother Dorothy, and her mother's helpers Voltkatze and Elephantus. She grows up hearing stories about the heroic Yattermen, as well as the Yatter Kingdom that lies on the other side of the sea. After walking inside an abandoned building, Leopard learns that she is a descendent of Doronjo, the leader of the Doronbo gang who fought against the Yatterman. Initially she resolves not to follow her ancestor's example, but this changes when Leopard, Voltkatze and Elephantus try to go to the Yatter Kingdom to ask for help in curing Dorothy's illness. They are driven away by the Yattermen and without aid Dorothy dies, causing Leopard to decide that the Yattermen were never truly heroes to begin with. In order to punish them, she restores the Doronbo gang as the new Doronjo.

  • Age-Inappropriate Dress: Her Doronjo costume has her in nothing but a tight-fitting leotard with thigh-high boots and heart garters.
  • Animal Motifs: Cats. Her name comes from a type of wildcat, and episode 7 even has her adding "nya" to the ends of her sentences when she's delusional from hunger. Later episodes have her continuing to say "nya" when she's flustered or upset.
  • Broken Pedestal: All over the place. First, she loses faith in the Yattermen after two soldiers shoot at her for asking for help from beyond the border. Then she loses faith in Yatter Kingdom as a sanctuary after it becomes clear to her that the people are suffering in there as they are beyond the border. The only person she has faith in now is Dokurobei, as she believes that he actually had noble intentions while the Yattermen were out for themselves. ... Until that became compromised when she actually meets Dokurobei, who also tries to kill her when she refuses to come to his side.
  • Bubble Pipe: Her most treasured item.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: She can't resist helping people she sees are in danger, usually at her own risk.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Red, like her ancestor Doronjo.
  • Dare to Be Badass: Uses this on Galina in Episode 2.
  • Determinator: Even when the odds are stacked against her, she only considers the day lost if they give up.
    Nothing is impossible! Where there's a will, there's a way!
  • Disappeared Dad: Her father died long before she was born.
  • Domino Mask: Unlike Elephantus and Voltkatze's masks, Leopard's Doronjo mask gives off this effect.
  • Expressive Mask: The mask behaves more as if she painted her face red than an actual mask.
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: A G-rated version of this, as she uses a bubble pipe. She's a girl with a good heart, putting this in the "Good Smoking" territory, but she also is invoking her villain ancestor, who was on the "Evil Smoking" side of this trope.
  • The Hero's Birthday: The plot kicks off when she and her guardians try to get to Yatter Kingdom on her ninth birthday.
  • Idiot Hair: A very long, curly one.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Of the Heroic and Idealist variety.
  • In the Name of the Moon: Lifted from the original Yattermen's version, no less.
    "As long as the beautiful, noble, and righteous Doronbo exists, Yattermen have no place in this world!"
  • I Will Wait for You: Before the Gang separates to fight Lord Yatterman, Leopard tries to squeeze out this to Galina, but catches herself before she can get the whole message out.
  • Kid Hero: Only 9 years old. If one counts this as an official part of the Time Bokan franchise, this makes her the youngest protagonist so far.
  • Large Ham: She's prone to big hamtastic declarations. Part of this is Leopard trying to emulate her ancestor, but part of this also seems to stem from Leopard being a nine-year old girl with big dreams.
  • Leotard of Power: In her Doronjo getup.
  • Little Miss Badass: Goes hand in hand with being Badass Adorable.
  • Meaningful Name: Or ironic, at all events, considering the phrase "A leopard can't change its spots." By ignoring her mother's kindly-meant (but propaganda-based) advice to revile her ancestor and humbly obey the Yattermen, and by taking on the identity of Doronjo, this is a phrase that Leopard is out to disprove.
  • Messianic Archetype: Discussed by Voltkatze and Elephantus in episode 6. They believe that Leopard's empathy for others is what makes her like an angel, and is what may change the world.
  • Memetic Hand Gesture: Raises her arm, putting her hand in finger-flicking position with her Bubble Pipe in-between her fingers.
  • Men Don't Cry: Gender Flipped. At the end of episode 4, Alouette asks Leopard if she is crying. Leopard is crying, but she responds by saying "A cool woman always laughs no matter what situation she's in!"
    • She does it again in the last episode, when she's forced to separate from Galina and Alouette in order for them to fight both fronts of Yatter Metropolis enemies.
  • Precocious Crush: By episode 7, she's seen crushing hard on the 17-year old Galina. Discussed in the following episode by Voltkatze and Elephantus; they note the fact that she hasn't bonded with another boy around her age, let alone met one.
  • Primary-Color Champion: Her outfit is a stylized black (dark blue) leotard with red accents, and in combination with her blond hair, she's this. Even when she was wearing civilian clothes she had this trope going for her, since she was most seen wearing blue overalls with a pink long sleeved shirt underneath, and pink can sometimes be substituted for a stylized red.
  • Shipper on Deck: She already thinks of Alouette as her mother, but when Voltkatze and Elephantus offered to be her parents, she mentally pairs off Voltkatze in the role of her father.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Her long hair, big blue eyes, and youthful face are awfully similar to both her mother and Doronjo.
  • Team Dad: She always plays the headstrong leader, and refuses to let her comrades give up on their goals. Despite this, she considers Voltkatze the Team Dad more.
  • Token Mini-Moe: An odd mix of this as she's combined with this and The Leader due to her trying to emulate her ancestor Doronjo.
  • Tragic Keepsake: Her Yatterman kids book, which she uses as reference for the personalities of the Doronbo.
  • The Unfought: Despite being the headstrong leader of the Doronbo Gang, she doesn't actually get into many fights. Justified because of her role as Doronjo, and the fact that she has little to no experience in combat.
  • Rapunzel Hair

Voltkatze / Boyacky
"That's right. We'll protect Miss Doronjo all the way without fail."
Voiced By: Hiroaki Hirata

The descendent of Boyacky, he has inherited his ancestor's mecahnical skill. Voltkatze's family has served Dorothy's family for generations, and he acted as one of Leopard's caretakers. When the attempt to save Dorothy fails, he joins the reformed Doronbo gang as the new Boyacky.

  • Affectionate Nickname: Since the name "Boyacky" is quite hard on the tongue for Elephantus, Elephantus thus made an easier, and cuter alternative, "Boyayan" for Voltkatze's codename. This is one of many other things that was lifted from their ancestors.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Whether by lust or by genuine attraction, he has this bad towards Alouette. However, it's unlikely that she'll ever reciprocate.
  • Bishie Sparkle: Tends to do this along with a Twinkle Smile whenever he acts like Boyacky.
  • Bishounen
  • Catchphrase: "Pucchito na."note  He took it from his ancestor.
  • Cat Smile: fitting, given his name.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Green, just like his ancestor Boyacky.
  • Demoted to Extra: Slowly but surely as Galina steps up to the forefront.
  • Gadgeteer Genius
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Elephantus.
  • Horny Scientist: Mostly acts like this to emulate like his ancestor, but his true personality has shades of this.
    Voltkatze: (After making a Double Entendre to Alouette) My ancestor was a character like that, so I'm just taking on his role. It's definitely because I don't have an ulterior motive.
  • Irony: His name contains the word "katze". His ancestor had rats as an Animal Motif.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Played with. Voltkatze is well aware of his ancestor's tendencies to preach to open air, and as such he does it constantly. As he talks to the audience, it does show he's looking directly at the fourth wall, but it's unclear if he's really aware of it or not since he's just mimicking Boyacky.
  • Meaningful Name: Voltkatze, the man who deals with electronics and machinery.
  • MacGyvering: Usually the one to resort to this. Whatever metal and parts he can find on the ground, he can make into a mech. Taken to ridiculous extremes in episode 3 where he was given only a couple of boxes and scraps of metal, but somehow was able to craft a giant stick of dynamite.
  • Not So Similar: Applies to the whole team, though very markedly to Voltkatze, as in spite of having inherited Boyacky's uncanny knack of crafting battle-ready mechas on a meagre budget, his suave and good-humoured nature (and principles, of course) differentiate him markedly from his sleazy, insecure, and ill-tempered forbear. Lampshaded in Episode 2, when Lord Oda climbs the tree and delivers a witty one-liner, just like the mini pig-robots in Boyacky's mechas used to do (poking fun at him, and to his annoyance). Voltkatze thinks it is awesome, compliments Lord Oda on his wit, and gets stared at incredulously by his companions (who perhaps realise, from their reference storybook, that this is terribly out of character for their would-be Boyacky).
  • Promoted to Parent: With Elephantus ever since Dorothy's death.
  • Redhead In Green: His hair's a bit more subdued than most examples (it's more brownish), but this trope still applies.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: High school girls be damned- he's got a full blown crush on Alouette and he's not hiding it anytime soon.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Averted big time. Voltkatze is basically what Boyacky wants to look like.
  • The Smart Guy
  • Tragic Keepsake: His screwdriver, which Dorothy gave to him one day.

Elephantus / Tonzura
Voiced By: Kenta Miyake

The descendent of Tonzura, he has inherited his ancestor's prodigious strength. Like Voltkatze, his family has served Dorothy's family for generations, and he acted as one of Leopard's caretakers. When the attempt to save Dorothy fails, he joins the reformed Doronbo gang as the new Tonzura.

  • Animal Motifs: His association with Sir Oda puts him with a pig motif, but he also makes very monkey-like faces when he feels like being goofy.

Sir Oda
Voiced by: Chiaki Takahashi

A pig at Leopard's farm that travels with the Doronbo gang. The counterpart of Odate Buta, the robotic pig that appeared in the original series.

  • Amplified Animal Aptitude: For a small pig, he's pretty smart. He understands his owners completely, knows how to solve problems (Ex: finding the book on the Yatter Kingdom tunnel), and adapts to situations quickly.
  • Appeal to Tradition: The trio have grown up with the custom, passed down from previous generations, that all pigs be respected, something they invoke regularly when others speak ill of Sir Oda. Neither the trio nor Dorothy quite understand how the custom came to be, but they follow it nonetheless.
  • Eat the Dog: The prospect of eating him has been brought up more than once. The Doronbo Gang refuse to do so, although Elephantus doesn't hide his desire to eat Oda very well. Their justification is that they should respect pigs and while they don't understand why, it is a custom that was passed down from their original ancestors.
  • Expy: Of Boota.
  • Fantastically Indifferent: Young Leopard was surprised to discover Oda could talk. Her mother and her companions simply accepted this and shrugged it off as being natural for a pig.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Fits in the palm of most character's hands, yet capable of busting through walls like a stampeding bull.
  • Punny Name: Takes his name from Odate Buta.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter
  • Talking Animal: On occasion. It's not clear how this is possible, since the original Odate Buta was a robot.
  • Team Pet
  • Toilet Humor: Usually the one to supply this.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Talking pig? Only talking biological animal in the series? Bah, it's nothing! This gets especially weird when we take a look at other biological non-talking animals.
  • Verbal Tic: Adds "-bu" to the ends of his sentences.

     Alouette and Galina 

Alouette Gorozo / Yatterman-2
Voiced By: Shizuka Ito

A girl living on the outskirts of Yatter Kingdom. She has a cheery disposition, but she is rather sensitive. After Yattermen took away her parents and dog to Yatter Metropolis, she had a stong hope that they would return. When she was told they had died, the trauma of the news affected her so much she went blind as a result. She refuses to believe her parents were killed, and prays for an angel to lead her to them, no matter how impossible it might be.

  • A Girl and Her X: Used to have this dynamic with her dog Wan-chan before he was taken to Yatter Metropolis. She still has this dynamic with the new and improved version of Yatterwan.
  • Animal Motifs: Seems to have a bird motif, as birds are usually shown flying whenever a scene focuses on her. Her name is even the French word for "Skylark". Goro also starts remembering a younger Alouette when he sees a skylark in his prison cell.
  • Childhood Friends: With Galina.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Downplayed. She's an average girl with a good heart, but she's kind of spacey.
    • The Cuckoolander Was Right: By the second half of the show, her delusional idea that her parents (and maybe her dog) might still be alive gains some weight with the fact that General Goro and his robot hound recognize both her and Galina.
  • Expy / Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Of Ai Kaminari, in both appearance and romantic tendencies. She uses this to her advantage and disguises as her in order to rouse the citizens of Yatter Metropolis.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook
  • Friend to All Living Things: Monkeys, pigs, and even lake monsters have been friendly towards Alouette.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold
  • Heroic BSoD: Suffered one long before the series began when she was told her parents died. The trauma was too much for her, causing her to go blind in the process.
  • Hidden Buxom: When Alouette wears her shroud, she looks rather average. Without the shroud, she looks much more mature than she lets on.
  • Identical Stranger: To Dorothy, which gives the Doronbo shivers when they first interact with her.
  • In-Series Nickname: "Ally" or "Allo", by Galina.
  • Meaningful Name: Her nickname "Ally" resembles "Ai", which was the name of the original Yatterman-2.
    • There's also some meaning in-series for her name: Her father considered skylarks to be the "angels" of spring, so in-context, her name essentially means "Angel".
  • Memento MacGuffin: General Goro's Shock and Awe cane becomes her weapon when she becomes Yatterman-2.
  • Missing Mom: Oddly enough, her mother didn't seem to be present when she was a baby. Knowing that both of her parents died though, this could just be a case of Death by Childbirth.
  • The Nicknamer: Calls the trio "angels" sometimes, Leopard "Little Angel"/ "Angel-chan", and Galina "Gatchan".
  • Out-of-Character Moment: Episode 3. Despite being one of the most cheerful people in the entire series, she's seen bursting into tears and running without any real direction after Leopard and crew leave.
  • Phrase Catcher: Borrows Dorothy's "My angel" on multiple occasions. She actually got it from her father, Mr. Gorozo.
  • The Pollyanna: She hasn't given up on finding her parents, even though it's more than likely they're dead. She also tends to be the one who looks at the bright side of things a lot more.
  • Rule of Symbolism: Alouette started going blind around the same time she couldn't accept the reality of her parents' death. In other words, she can't see her situation for what it is.
  • Significant Double Casting: She has the same voice actor as Dorothy; see Identical Stranger.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: Apparently, she seems to understand the various animal critters the characters run into.
  • Stepford Smiler: It's not too noticeable at first, but over the course of the series we can see that she's this. Most, if not all of the time, she's been perfectly fine with most of the events happening around her and keeps an almost permanent smile on her face the entire time. However, she constantly mutters about wanting to see her parents and dog again even though both she and Galina know that it's just not possible. note  The absolute best example of this behavior is in episode 3 when Leopard and the Doronbo leave Ally's house, and she goes rushing into the forest after them, fully expectant that they're going to be the ones to help her reunite with her family. Galina even says as much as early as Episode 3, mentioning that she's always been sad and depressed until the Doronbo came into their lives.
  • Tareme Eyes
  • Team Mom: Plays the calming presence to Leopard's encouraging personality.
  • Tears of Joy: Once she gets her sight back.
  • Took a Level in Badass: After accepting the deaths of her parents and dog, she finally steps up to the plate and fights alongside Galina as Yatterman-2. She's still hesitant about it and there's still a lot to take in, but for the most part she has the will to fight.
  • Womanchild: She has a very childish look on life, and her mental state causes her to speak in children's terms. Because of this (and partly because of her blindness), she has to be taken care of by Galina. She gets better.

Galina / Yatterman-1
Click here to see him with his mask 
"If it's odd, I'll stay. If it's even... no! This is something I've got to decide for myself!"
Voiced By: Hiroyuki Yoshino

A boy living on the outskirts of the Yatter Kingdom with Alouette. He is indecisive, and tends to rely on dice to decide whatever he wants to do. He is an expert seamster, and was the one responsible for creating the Doronbo's outfits. After losing his parents to the Yattermen, Galina vowed to protect Alouette from suffering the same fate. Due to this resolve, he decides to join the Doronbo.

  • A Day in the Limelight: Episode 7 served as this for him. Since the Doronbo and Alouette were knocked out by the Yatterman, it was up to him and Ryu to bust them out of there and create a plan for escape.
  • Celibate Hero: He cares for both Alouette and Leopard, but he's only interested in protecting Ally and he hasn't even noticed that Leopard has a crush on him.
  • Character Development: He starts out as an unsure young man, but as he spends time with the Doronbo gang he becomes more proactive, eventually being able to think for himself, make complicated plans, and create robots on his own.
  • Childhood Friends: With Alouette.
  • Crucified Hero Shot: When he gets captured and threatened in episode 6, he's strung up this way.
  • Declaration of Protection: To Alouette, after their parents' deaths. Alouette's father specifically entrusted him to protect her before being shipped off to Yatter Metropolis.
  • Deuteragonist: Being the stand-in for the original series' protagonist will do that. He's the most proactive plot element other than Leopard.
  • Distressed Dude: In episode 6.
  • Expy / Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Of Gan Takada, in both looks and devotion to his dearest friend. He uses these similarities to his advantage when he decides to disguise as Gan to rouse the citizens of Yatter Metropolis.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: As he spends more time around Voltkatze, he's becoming this.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Galina is a common girl's name in Europe.
  • Heads or Tails?: Uses an "Odds or Evens" variation with dice.
  • Honor Before Reason: Once he finds out that Dokurobei was the mastermind behind Yatterman's corruption, ruining and using their names and reputations for his regime, including killing his, Alouette, and Leopard's parents, Galina decides to fight alongside the Doronbo and become a beacon of hope for the citizens of Yatter Kingdom. It should be noted that though he does have some combat experience, he doesn't have much, and he's planning on going against an entire army.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes
  • Improbable Weapon User: He later uses a wooden kendama to fight. Unlike his predecessor, he doesn't know how to wield it properly.
  • In-Series Nickname: "Gatchan" by Alouette.
  • Meaningful Name: His name resembles "Gan", the name of the original Yatterman-1. His nickname even mimics Gan's own In-Series Nickname, "Gan-chan".
    • Galina means "Calmness" in Greek. Of he and Alouette, he acts as the more levelheaded one.
    • With only one letter off, his name looks similar to Gallina, the Spanish word for hen. As Alouette's caretaker, he certainly seems like a mother hen to her. He even mentions as much to Ally during the finale.
  • Nice Hat: His baggy blue cap.
  • Not So Above It All: He may be the sanest out of the five, but he still has his moments. Let's not forget that he also joined in the Doronbo's delusions of an undersea palace in Episode 7.
  • Oblivious to Love: He doesn't even consider the fact that Leopard might be crushing on him when he's taking care of her.
  • One Head Taller: Has this dynamic with Alouette. Exaggerated with Leopard, since he's the object of her budding affections.
  • Only Sane Man: He doesn't have a strange quirk like the Doronbo, and out of himself and Alouette, he's the one that actually sees their situation for what it is. He's also the guy who keeps reminding Leopard what and what not to do in Yatter Kingdom.
  • Primary-Color Champion: His blue jacket has red and yellow accents.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: In addition to keeping Alouette safe, he makes and mends all of her clothes. He's also able to re-construct the original Doronbo's outfits for the new trio in less than a night.
  • Robot Buddy: He builds himself one by Episode 7. It turns out to be a smaller version of Omochama.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Plays the Sensitive Guy to Elephantus' Manly Man during episode 5.
  • Shock and Awe: Around the time of the climactic fight, he receives an improved kendama weapon with an added electrical shock feature, closely resembling the original Yatterman-1's Kendamagic.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Not physically as noted below, but has since grown more confident and competent, such ad when he made a plan for escape for Ryu in Episode 7.
    • He takes several hundred more levels during the fight with Lord Dokurobei and the Guardian Gods, even resorting to blowing up one of them with his new and improved Kendamagic.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Galina is not a strong person (far from it), but he can use his opponent's strengths against them in combat.

Yatter Metropolis

     Yatterman Army 

Yattermen/Yatter Soldiers
Voiced By:
Male Soldiers: Yasuaki Takumi (ep.1-4), Atsushi Kousaka (ep.5, 10), Kozo Mito (ep.6, 11), Riki Kitazawa (ep.6, 7, 9, 11), Kenji Takahashi (ep.7), Youhei Oobayashi (ep.7), Hiro Nakajima (ep.7), Masahito Yabe (ep.10-11)
Female Soldiers: Noriko Shitaya (ep.1-4), Ryoka Yuzuki (ep.5), Mika Teratani (ep.9), Asami Yano (ep.11)

The protectors of the Yatter Kingdom, modeled after Dekkaido's previous saviors. Serving as the nation's police, they monitor every inch of the kingdom on the lookout for disturbances of the peace. They are ruthless, merciless, and swift in punishment... except when they're not. As the episodes go by, they're also shown to be just as Hot-Blooded and filled with pork as the main characters, not to mention absolutely silly where it counts. Despite this, they're still willing to serve Lord and Lady Yatterman to the death if need be.

  • Badass Baritone/Contralto of Danger
  • The Bad Guys Are Cops: Yatter Kingdom is essentially a police state filled to the brim with Yatter Army Soldiers watching for any dissension.
  • Battle Cry: Usually shout "Yatterman!", coupled with their Strange Salute.
  • Creepy Monotone: Displayed this during their Robotic Reveal to chilling effect.
    Yatter! Yatter! Yatter! Yatter! Yatter! Yatter! Yatter!...
  • Combining Mecha: They can stack themselves upon one another to create different weapons. This is a reference to the Mini-Mecha from the original Yatterman series, who could also combine in this way.
  • Covert Pervert: At least one of them is. A Male-type Yatter Soldier took great shame in accidentally showing off a video cassette of an old interview of high school girls.
  • Dull Surprise: They hardly even tried to present themselves as actual human beings in episode 7.
  • Evil Is Hammy: They're not usually the ones to sport this type of behavior, but a couple of Female Yattermen get in on this when they fight Takeshi and the Gang in Episode 5.
  • Evil Knockoff: Since the true ruler of the Yatter Kingdom is Dokurobei, they're all really this.
  • Family-Friendly Firearms: Averted. They may wield Ray Guns and utilize odd-looking mechs, but their weaponry is far from non-lethal. Their first appearance alone had them almost kill a little girl with their weapons.
  • Gendered Outfit: Male Yattermen wear Gan's outfit, while Female Yattermen wear Ai's.
  • Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy
  • Malevolent Masked Men: Emphasized all the more, as the masks are the only defined part of their faces.
  • Mecha-Mooks
  • Mook Chivalry: Averted to a high degree. They tend to show up in very large groups, and usually just resort to shooting the Doronbo (or anyone in cahoots with them) every chance they get.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: In order to trap the Doronbo, Galina, and Alouette, the Yattermen pose as a giant turtle and some kids and fake beating it up. Throughout all of this exchange, they make absolutely no effort to sound convincing, and they covered up their faces with a piece of paper with a smiley face on it. The turtle didn't look much better, as its colors look exactly like the color schemes of the Yatter Kingdom's mechs. And when they go to the underwater base, we see exactly the same kind of turtle mechs where they land.
  • Primary-Color Champion: In Name Only this time around, since they're all based off of actual heroes and basically keep the "peace" in Yatter Kingdom. The male Yatter Soldiers wear a light blue jumpsuit and a red bandana, while the female soldiers have a red hat and some blue accents. Both sets have blond hair.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Their default eye color.
  • Redshirt Army
  • Sketchy Successor: They are a far cry from the goofy, Saturday morning Sentai that the original Yattermen were.
  • Strange Salute: Push their forearms together and kick out one leg. It was originally part of a Happy Dance that the original Yattermen did upon victory.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Even after defeating the Doronbo in battle, they will not rest until they're either captured or dead. They shot a house to splinters, then proceeded to burn it down during one search.
  • Would Hurt a Child: The first Yatter Soldiers we're introduced to are more than perfectly willing to shoot at 9-year old Leopard after figuring out she's trying to cross the border.

Yatter Army Captain
Voiced By: Kenji Takahashi

Like his name implies, this particular Yatterman serves as captain and commander of the Yatter Army.

  • Green and Mean: Wears a green bandana to differentiate himself from the other Yattermen.

    General Goro and his dog Wan 

General Goro
Voiced By: Nobuyuki Hiyama

A ruthless general working under Lord and Lady Yatterman, accompanied by Yatterpug. After his initial meeting with the Doronbo, he decides to hunt them all down. In actuality, he's the long-absent parent of Alouette, the kind and caring Mr. Gorozo. Before being sent away to Yatter Metropolis, he entrusted Galina to take care of his daughter and dies in a factory explosion not long afterwards. However, he was brought back to life by Lord Yatterman and given new life as General Goro.

  • Four-Star Badass: General of the Yatter Soldiers, and can easily kick all sorts of ass with his Shock Stick.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Ends up like this when the Yatter Guardians become fed up with his incompetence. He's still alive thanks to his robotics.
  • Handicapped Badass: Even after losing his legs for failing to stop the Doronbo, he still manages to put up a pretty impressive fight.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: After being arrested and tortured, his memories start acting up and he remembers his role as Alouette's father. However, in the last few moments of Episode 11, we see him blowing himself up to allow his daughter some time to escape Lord Yatterman's castle.
  • Heroic Sacrifice
  • Heroic Second Wind: After being captured and arrested by the other Yatter Guardian Gods, he starts becoming catatonic and solemn. All of a sudden, he starts having visions of his previous life as Mr. Gorozo, fully remembering who he is and who he's related to. When he hears that the Doronbo are trying to escape the castle, he immediately jumps to action and helps them as best as he can.
  • Humongous Mecha: Yatterpug, his personal version of Yatterwan.
  • I Owe You My Life: Ever since Lord and Lady Yatterman saved his life, he devotes himself to preserving their order.
  • Kick the Dog: Agrees to let off a civilian from going to Yatter Metropolis in exchange for snuffing the Doronbo out. By the end of the episode, he sends the poor guy there anyway, completely devastating his wife.
  • Meaningful Name: Goro's name contains , the Japanese word for five. See You Are Number Five below.
    • In his previous life, he was also called Mr. Gorozo.
  • Phrase Catcher: Dorothy and Alouette's "My little angel". In actuality, Alouette got it from him, back when he was still human and living as Mr. Gorozo.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over
  • The Reveal: He knows Galina from somewhere, and his dog does too. He also hesitates to go for the killing blow once he sees Alouette, and the scene then cuts to Ally's family picture with her father's face cropped out-showing the audience that Goro is her long absent father.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: When the Doronbo arrive at a beach in episode 7 , they mention that they wanted to go to an "undersea palace". Goro assumes that they're actually looking for the Yatter Kingdom's underwater base, which just so happens to be under the beach they're on. They were delusional from hunger at the time, and they were rambling on and on about actually going to an underwater sea palace like in the folktales of Taro.
  • Shock and Awe: Fights using a cane with a built-in tazer. It's almost completely similar in structure to Ai's Shock Stick.
  • Tsurime Eyes
  • Verbal Tic: He tends to end his sentences with "-daze".
  • Walking Spoiler: Gee, you think so?!
  • Was Once a Man
  • We Can Rebuild Him: In Yatter Metropolis, he and his dog were caught in a factory explosion. For whatever reason, Lord Yatterman took him in and rebuilt him with cybernetic parts, but also erasing his memory in the process.
  • You Are Number Five: Goro is the 5th Yatter Guardian God, as seen through the tattoo under his right eye, a trait shared with all the other Yatter Guardian Gods.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: He pulls this on a large swarm of Yatter Soldiers to allow the Doronbo some time to escape.

Wan the Robotic Dog / Yatterwan
Voiced by: Atsushi Kousaka

  • Canine Companion: In addition to Yatterpug, Wan is seen tagging along with General Goro.
  • Cyborg: Like General Goro, he too was originally a real dog. And not only that, he's Alouette's family dog, which is crucial for his role after his reincarnation.
  • A Dog Named "Dog": Goro's dog's name is "Wan," which is the Japanese phonetic term for a dog's barking sound. Japan also commonly uses the slang "Wan-chan" to define the word, "puppy."
  • Reincarnation: Through the few pieces Galina collected of him, Wan was able to be engineered as the true Yatterwan, serving his Undying Loyalty and protective instincts onto Yatterman-2 (Alouette) in the same matter as it's Yatterman predecessor.
  • Undying Loyalty: To General Goro. Also to Yatterman-2, to the point that, in his first fight as Yatterwan, he didn't even need the Mecanomoto to unlock his real powers, but Alouette praying him to fight by her side.

     Lord Yatterman *SPOILERS* 

Lord Dokurobei
"In other words. there is no Yatterman. In a manner of speaking, I am the Yatterman. So greetings, Doronbo! I'm Lord Yatterman."
Voiced By: Hori

During the series, its said that the Yatter Kingdom is ruled by Lord and Lady Yatterman. When the new Doronbo gang is finally captured, Lord Yatterman has them brought to his throne room and reveals his true identity as Dokurobei.

After leaving Earth in the original Yatterman series, Dokurobei was still really annoyed that the Yattermen had tried to stop him. He then returned to Earth many times in order to get revenge on the Yattermen, but they still kept beating him. He gets so fed up that he exiled the Doronbos' ancestors and then launched a full-scale Colony Drop war on Earth. After he finally defeated the Yattermen, he decided to complete his revenge by ruling over humanity as "Lord Yatterman".

  • Adaptational Villainy: He's far more evil and destructive than the original series Dokurobei (who merely wanted to leave Earth) and the 2008-reboot version (who tried to steal the dreams of humanity). He's more like his film counterpart Skullobey. This is especially weird, since the former two and the Dokurobei you see now are actually one in the same.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: For the final battle, he grows to a gigantic height.
  • Beard of Evil
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: Borrows Voltkatze's "And click" catchphrase when he turns on the video detailing his rise to power.
  • Big Bad: Not only is he the true ruler of the Yatter Kingdom, he's the one who exiled the Doronbo's ancestors in the first place!
  • The Caligula: Juuuuust a bit. He clearly seems to do things because it amuses him, and he has an odd way of speaking to the point where sometimes the tone of his voice changes. He also starts crying when he talks about how the Yattermen kept him from leaving Earth.
  • Catchphrase: It's Punishment time, beh!
  • Cool Mask: A skull mask covering the top half of his face.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: For failing him multiple times, he sent the Doronbo to the outskirts of Yatter Kingdom, barely able to survive for an untold number of years.
  • Evil Old Folks: He looks like an old man, at any rate.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Oh boy. Guy knows how to make an entrance.
  • For the Evulz: Seems to motivate what he does.
  • High-Class Glass: Wears a monocle.
  • Human Aliens: Looks like a human but is actually an alien.
  • Japanese Dialects: He speaks like he has a Hokkaido accent. This is most present in his Verbal Tic, "-dabe".
  • Jerkass: Jesus christ. He got so pissed off after losing to Gan and Ai twice that he exiled the Doronbo himself and destroyed the world. Then he took on Gan and Ai's role, defiled their legacy, and made the people of Yatter Kingdom work for him to make energy to keep himself alive.
  • Lean and Mean: Built like a bean-pole and an utter bastard of a person.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: After multiple failed attempts at defeating the Yattermen through the Doronbo Gang, Dokurobei finally decides to say "screw it" and opens fire on all of humanity.
  • Masquerading As the Unseen: There's a good reason why Lord and Lady Yatterman are never seen by the public... That's because there isno Lady Yatterman. Oh, and Dokurobei's using their names for slander.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Eventually growing sick over constantly losing, he eventually came back to Earth with as much firepower as possible and actually succeeded in defeating Gan and Ai. Then he proceeded to create a dystopia in their name so that he can both slander their image and take his anger out on humanity.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He's outlived two generations of Yattermen, and possibly many more.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: The reason he attacked Earth, and part of the reason he makes it such a Crapsack World.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Is it Dokurobei? Dokurobee? Dokorobey? And What's with his honorific (Lord, Great)?!
    • Meaningful Name: Some have pointed out that one of the alternate spellings of Dokurobei (Dokorobey) is more than fitting for the kind of obedience-heavy world that he's ruling over.
  • Sore Loser: Apparently, even after getting what he wanted in the first series Dokurobei couldn't stand the fact that the Yattermen got in his way.
  • Tohoku Regional Accent: He apparently speaks in a weird Hokikadoian accent that makes him sound like a drunken hick.
  • Verbal Tic: "-beh", as in the original series.
  • Walking Spoiler
  • We Can Rule Together: Brings the Doronbos to him in order to offer them this, but even before he makes the offer it's pretty clear Leopard is having none of it.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: Finally, finally subverted.
  • You Don't Look Like You: The original series's Dokurobei was a short, fat man. This one is a tall thin man.

Voiced by: Mamiko Noto (Micchan), Yasunori Matsumoto (Beane)

Voiced by: Yuu Kobayashi

  • Charles Atlas Superpower/Super Strength: No one's quite clear where he got it from, but he's gained the ability to handle loads way more than could be humanly possible.
  • Heroic Build: He may not be one of the main characters, but he's firmly on the side of good. Not to mention that the kid's jacked due to his sumo wrestling training.
  • Hot Blood: Lives and breathes this trope.
  • Manly Tears: Cries when he receives the snow bunny from Elephantus and Voltkatze.
  • No Indoor Voice
  • Shout-Out: He's named after Takeshi Yoroi of Hurricane Polymar, and the episode he appears in calls him "The Hurricane Dedicated to his Mother".

Persimmon Seller
Voiced by: Taiten Kusunoki

  • Badass Baritone
  • Defrosting Ice King: Gradually warms up to Leopard during the course of episode 6.
  • Disney Death: He's shown to survive the shot he collapsed from when he appears in Episode 12 along with the other residents the Doronbo helped.
  • Face of a Thug: He's not that bad a guy underneath his gruff exterior.
  • Foreshadowing: Brings up the meaning of lavenders, which continues to be a motif for Alouette and Goro's relationship.
  • Flower Motifs: Associated with Lavenders, since he has a garden full of them.
  • Go Out with a Smile: When he gets back to his garden after getting shot, he notices a "thank you" note that Leopard left for him the night before. Knowing he had helped a good person, he smiles at the note as he collapses. Subverted, in that he's not actually dead.
  • Nemean Skinning: Wears a bear skin on his shoulders.
  • No Name Given

Voiced by: Satoshi Hino
  • Animal Motifs: Turtles, referencing the Japanese folktale of Tarou and the undersea palace. He gets taken into the Yatterman undersea prison through a Yatter Kingdom turtle mech, and when he escapes said prison, a group of turtles help pull him to safety. During the last few moments of Episode 12, we see him surrounded by tutrles, himself standing on the shell of one of them.
  • Back for the Finale
  • Bestiality Is Depraved: The harem he wants to create is made entirely out of aquatic life.
  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": There's an "M" etched into his hairstyle, letting the audience know exactly the type of things he's into.
  • Erotic Asphyxiation: He takes up skin diving precisely because of this trope.
  • Everyone Has Standards: He might be one of the biggest perverts in the series, and he may be a bit exotic with his fetishes, but even he doesn't want get worked like a dog by the Yatter Kingdom.
  • Harem Seeker: Says he wants to get out to the "true sea" beyond the Kingdom walls in order to get one.
  • Hypocritical Humor: He comments on how weird everyone is acting during one point in Episode 7. Uh, buddy, you might want to take a look in the mirror.
  • I Didn't Mean to Turn You On: When the gang's first introduced to him, they find him getting beat up by Yatter Soldiers for seemingly no reason at all. As it turns out, he was doing just fine.
  • Masochism: And he's pretty loud about it, too.
  • Mythology Gag: His diving outfit is actually a huge one to fellow Time Bokan series Gyakuten! Ippatsuman, as the main character has a similarly styled battle outfit.
  • Shout-Out: His back story is reminiscent to another Tatsunoko series, Urashiman.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: He's noticeably turned on when he's being kicked around by the Yattermen, and doesn't mind being a slave to someone. Due to his skin diving habit, he can also hold his breath for long periods of time (which really helped him when he tried to escape the base), which normally wouldn't be so bad if he didn't say that he's turned on by the feeling of breathlessness too.
  • Verbal Tic: "-dabesa."
