Gutsy Geoid Guard/Gutsy Galaxy Guard[edit]

Guy Shishioh[edit]

Guy Shishioh (獅子王凱 shishiō gai)
Relations Father: Leo Shishioh
Mother: Kizuna Shishioh
Uncle: Liger Shishioh
Cousin: Renais Kerdif-Shishioh
Japanese voice actor Nobuyuki Hiyama
English voice actor Mike Sinterniklaas

A brave man with tremendous courage and enthusiasm, and the strength to never give up for the sake of life—even at the possible cost of his own.

Former astronaut and test pilot for the Space Development Corporation. In 2003, he had been in orbit testing an experimental space shuttle when an extraterrestrial object (later classified as EI-01) suddenly appeared in his flight path, smashing his shuttle out of the way. This left the shuttle disabled and Guy himself in a near-death state.

The alien mechanical lion, Galeon, would then appear and deal a crushing blow to EI-01, sending it out of orbit to land on Earth. Thereafter, Galeon would find the critically wounded Guy and return him to the Space Development Corporation. Adapting Galeon's technologies, his father Leo Shishioh would create a cyborg body for his son (with a G-Stone-powered mechanical heart), saving his life and giving him superhuman strength.

Cyborg Guy[edit]

Though legally declared dead, Guy would join the Gutsy Geoid Guard and become the commander of its Mobile Unit. Serving alongside his old high school sweetheart Mikoto Utsugi, he would boldly stand against signs of the coming alien threat. This would bear fruit when the Zonder Robo EI-02 emerged from Garbage Island in 2005. GGG's grand counterattack prepared, he would perform Fusion with Galeon and Final Fusion with the GaoMachines to become the Super Mechanoid GaoGaiGar and destroy EI-02, beginning a long-running battle against the Zonder threat.

While operating in the field, Cyborg Guy was equipped with "Ultimate Armor", derived from the ID Armor previously worn by the disbanded secret organization ID5. When in battle, he entered Equip mode, readying himself and placing a data-gathering lens over his right eye (the data being displayed with the shout of "Library"). On his left hand, he wore a GaoBrace that served to protect the G-Stone that provided him energy, as well as incorporating a signaling mechanism that utilized that power for calling Galeon with the "projection beam". The rear of the GaoBrace contained a sheath for Guy's Will Knife, a G-Stone-based bladed weapon with variable sharpness (determined through the will of the user; hence the name).

In emergency situations, Guy could tap into the energy batteries (the orange canisters linked in series that fall on either side of Guy's face) to enter a golden-colored Hyper Mode—raising his fighting power to its absolute limit, though the effect could only last three minutes.

Cyborg Guy had the additional ability to operate in the vacuum of space for limited periods of time.

In this form, Guy often called himself "mankind's strongest Cyborg" (jinrui saikyō no Cyborg). Despite the bold claim, Guy's cyborg body is still somewhat less than invincible. In fact, until Mamoru's restorative powers came to light, it would take time for Guy to recover from battles, and successive uses of Hell and Heaven would send him to the emergency room.

Evoluder Guy[edit]

Following the battle with Zonuda (Mikoto Utsugi, transformed into a new type of Zonder) at the end of the television series, Guy's cybernetic body would be thoroughly "infected" through the Zonuda Matter Sublimation ability. With the aid of an unconscious Mamoru, Guy performed Purification for the first time, saving her and returning them both to human form. Guy's body, having absorbed the G-Stone previously on the GaoBrace, surpassed that of a normal human; "Evoluder Guy" was born.

As an Evoluder, Guy retains much of his superhuman strength, in addition to the ability to interface directly with computers and other machinery (this method of manipulation enables Guy to pilot the Phantom Gao and GaoFighGar, both of which use "Evolual Ul-Tech power"). He also had the ability to enter a green-glowing state wherein he (like Latio) was able to fly and survive in space for an indefinite period of time. (Unlike Latio, it can be noted that Guy did not gain wings when in this form.) When operating in the field, he uses ID Armor with properties similar to that of the Ultimate Armor used as a Cyborg. Notably, Guy used his Evoluder abilities to pilot GaoFighGar even when the latter had been destroyed far beyond any hope of repair by Palparepa. This effect was accompanied by cables from GaoFighGar's cockpit wrapping around the injured Guy so that GaoFighGar continued to mirror his movements.

When Evoluder Guy draws power for one of his Evoluder abilities, the distinctive "G" symbol appears on the back of his (left) hand. This occurs when he is GaoFar and GaoFighGar (on both hands) as well as GaiGar.

In this form, Guy calls himself "the superhuman Evoluder" (chōjin Evoluder). Both the narrator and Palparepa refer to Guy (or Genesic GaoGaiGar) as the God of Destruction.

Mamoru Amami (Latio)[edit]

Mamoru Amami (天海護 amami mamoru)
Latio (ラティオ ratio)
Relations Adopted Father: Isamu Amami

Adopted Mother: Ai Amami
Classmates: Hana Hatsuno, Reiko Komori,
Sueo Ushiyama, Sunou Takayasu
Father: Cain
Mother: (unnamed)

Japanese voice actor Maiko Itou
English voice actor Veronica Taylor

A light-hearted boy of alien origin, born with the name "Latio" on the Green Planet of the Tri-Star Solar System. When his father—the Green Planet's "Protector", Cain— discovered his natural ability to purify the out-of-control Zonder Metal which threatened to invade his world, he set to work duplicating the effect. The result of this work was the G-Stone, a power source he had hoped to utilize against the Zonders and the 31 Machine Primevals. However, even though the G-Stone was reverse engineered (and Mamoru himself genetically replicated) and mass-produced by the Red Planet, the Z-Master ultimately defeated their forces, and the rest of the Tri-Star Solar System was mechanized and dispersed. Cain's final creation Galeon was tasked with carrying his son, the last survivor, through the Galeorea Comet to the "Blue Planet"—Earth.

Galeon landed on Earth in 1997 near the North Pole to deliver Latio to the married couple who would become his two foster parents—Isamu and Ai—who gave him the name Mamoru ("to protect") and raised him as their own son. As the child's memories were sealed in a pendant also left by Galeon (and stored away by his parents, not knowing its purpose), he was unaware of his origins or abilities as he grew.

In 2005, Mamoru at age eight "sensed" a Zonder while on Garbage Island, his hair standing on end and glowing green while doing so. Thereafter, he encountered EI-02 with his classmates. When Guy destroyed it and retrieved its core with Hell and Heaven, he began to unthinkingly crush it. This caused Mamoru's latent abilities to awaken. He glowed green, grew wings of energy and flew over to the Zonder Core, performing Purification on it for the first time. The incantation Mamoru uses to purify is "Curatio! Teneritas, sectio, salus... coctura! (Healing! Tenderness, dissection, salvation... smelting!)".

The Gutsy Geoid Guard, having seen this occur, began to look for "the boy with green hair." Shortly before EI-04 appeared, GGG managed to "capture" Mamoru for further study, not knowing whether he represented friend or foe. Once GGG grew to understand his nature, it would lead to him working with them on friendly terms, becoming a "special agent" (he does not have a rank, and specifically mentions it). In doing so, he began to leave his normal life and used his powers to help others, knowing that the Zonders would threaten them.

Upon the 31 Machine Primevals' arrival on Earth, Mamoru learned that he was incapable of purifying a Primeval Core. When Kohtaroh Taiga visited his parents and retrieved the pendant that Galeon had given them, GGG attempted to access Galeon's databanks with Mamoru wearing the pendant in order to learn if it had any effect on him. This caused him to regain partial memory of his powers—enough to sense and purify the Primevals.

In the climactic final battle against the 31 Primevals at Jupiter, Guy and Mamoru saw Cain through Galeon's program, which had been temporarily restored through intervention of "THE POWER." During this time, Cain restored all of Mamoru's memories of infanthood.

When the 31 Primevals and Zonuda were defeated, Mamoru left Earth with Galeon to return to the former site of the Tri-Star Solar System, in order to use the large G-Crystal Cain had left there to restore Galeon's original program. There, they met the 11 Planetary Masters of Soul, whose purpose was to restore the Tri-Star Solar System. However, they took their orders to an extreme, and were using their regeneration machine to fix their home system by gathering dark matter from the current universe—destroying it in the process.

Taking desperate action, Mamoru used their regeneration machine to create duplicates of himself and Galeon, and stole the machine's backbone circuit: the Pas-Q Machine. With it, he fled to Earth through the Galeorea Comet, leaving Galeon behind in the G-Crystal. Having fallen exhausted near Jupiter, Mamoru was encountered by Ikumi Kaidou and the J-Ark, whom he begged to take the Pas-Q Machine to GGG; they were interrupted by the Master of Sol Pia Decem, who began to launch an attack against the J-Ark to retrieve it. Kaidou took the Pas-Q Machine to Earth while Soldato J returned to the Tri-Star Solar System with Mamoru. There in the Tri-Star System, the J-Ark was captured and Soldato J imprisoned, leaving Mamoru with no choice but to retreat to the G-Crystal.

In GaoGaiGar FINAL, GGG learned of what had occurred and followed Kaidou to the Tri-Star Solar System, where they faced the 11 Soul Masters. Mamoru also reappeared, rejoining GGG in the battle—where he fought against Pei La Cain, the Master of Soul made in the image of his father.

Following the defeat of the 11 Masters of Soul, Mamoru and Kaidou were returned to Earth's solar system, where they live normal lives.

In addition to the abilities of Purification and "Two Powers Into One" (the latter of which he used to destroy the Zonder Master Program at the end of the TV series), Mamoru has the ability to "adjust" damaged GS-Ride using machines and robots, restoring their powers and repairing damaged functionality. He has also "adjusted" Cyborg Guy so that the living part of him will accept the mechanical parts, removing any threat of rejection (this process normally takes a week - Mamoru reduced it to seconds). While glowing green, he is also shielded—preventing intrusion of surrounding forces—and can extend that shielding to others if he so desires. This shielding allows him (and others) to survive in space for an indeterminate period of time.

Raised and otherwise acts as an average child, despite his powers. On occasion, he has his adopted father's tendency to exclaim "Wah-ha!" in delight. Is very serious about his responsibilities, however—almost to an adult level. Very much in love with classmate Hana Hatsuno (whom he refers to familiarly as "Hana-chan"), and apparently fairly good at the robot fighting toy game "Raji-Robo".

Mamoru Amami was going to be one of the main characters of the now cancelled GaoGaiGar project, The King of Braves GaoGaiGar Project Z, where he appears to be one of the two "Head Divers" (term for a Neuronoid pilot in Betterman) controlling the Neuromechanoid Awakener GaiGo.

Mikoto Utsugi[edit]

Mikoto Utsugi
Japanese voice actor Tomoe Hanba
English voice actor Rebecca Soler

Guy's girlfriend and a GGG computer operator. Mikoto is responsible for launching the Gao Machines, activating the Final Fusion program and sending out equipment like the Dividing Driver.

Mikoto is a crucial part of the activation process of the Goldion Hammer, doing the final "relieving" of its safety device.

Mikoto's parents died when EI-01 hit Tokyo. After passing out in the aftermath, the Zonderian Pasder implanted into her the spore of a new Zonder type, which slowly developed in her unbeknownst to her and everyone throughout the series. Following the defeat of the Primevals, the spore awoke, turning her into the "new machine species", or Zonuda. She drained all of the power out of the 3G Space Base, before landing in Tokyo in a fragment of one of the base ships. As a core part of Zonuda, Mikoto was alert but unable to do anything. After being reduced to a core in a final battle with GaoGaiGar, Zonuda turned back into its human-sized robot form, with Mikoto still contained within. Guy managed to use Mamoru to purify her, however, transforming the two into Evoluders.

Mikoto's Evoluder abilities are less clear than Guy's. She demonstrates that her nerve cells, at least, are capable of regeneration, and later shows high telepathic abilities (communicating with both Guy and Papillon Noir in spirit form numerous times throughout episode 8 of FINAL). Papillon at one point says that Mikoto became "an invincible life-form like the new machine species", which could be taken to mean that Mikoto is in fact incapable of being killed permanently, possessing a Zonuda-like regenerative ability.

Koutaro Taiga[edit]

Koutaro Taiga (大河幸太郎 Taiga Kôtarô)
Japanese voice actor Kouji Ishii
English voice actor Dan Green

Koutaro Taiga is the loud, proud, and quite energetic president of the Space Development Corporation and chief of the Gutsy Geoid (later Galaxy) Guard. It is Taiga's job to oversee GGG's mission, and to approve the use of necessary procedures (Final Fusion, Symmetrical Docking) as well as more crucial and untested equipment (Goldion Hammer, Goldion Crusher, Projectile X and so on).

As Chief, his job is also to report to the GGG's overseeing body (the Japanese Diet, then later the U.N) and also request more budget allocations as well as argue GGG's case and purpose on occasion.

While GGG was based in Japan, his approval essentially represented the Prime Minister's approval, and in space, it represented the approval of the U.N. Secretary General (according to the box containing the Gold Key).

He is apparently married and has two daughters (though it is not mentioned in the series or FINAL), and enjoys playing golf when not on duty as President or Chief. As such, he is handy with a golf club (the "Titanium-Head Driver" and later the "Taiga Wood").

Leo Shishioh[edit]

Dr. Leo Shishioh
Japanese voice actor Kenichi Ogata
English voice actor Marc Diraison

The former Chief Scientist of the Gutsy Geoid Guard, responsible for all of its G-Stone technologies. Also Guy's father, he appeared on the surface to be somewhat flippant about his son's involvement in GGG (though as a father, the only reason he let Guy fight was his request to do so).

Although he was 70 years old, he did not act it, and regularly flew around the Main Order Room in "Jet-Roller" roller skates (which also provided him with the "Leo Lariat" attack, in which he sped toward a target—that is, his older brother Liger—and smashed his elbow into him). He was not beyond going into the field, either, and in Episode 15 piloted LinerGao through a manual Final Fusion sequence (and continued to ride it through GaoGaiGar's subsequent fight with EI-15).

Leo met his final fate piloting the Assault Reconnaissance Cutter Murakumo, in Jupiter orbit during GGG's final battle with the 31 Machine Primevals; Murakumo was destroyed in the process and fell into Jupiter's gravity well, where the spirit of Leo himself was saved by (and became one with) "THE POWER" generated by the planet. There, he was also reunited with his wife Kizuna (who had herself met a similar fate). As GGG's final battle continued, Leo and Kizuna managed to release a vast amount of "THE POWER" from Jupiter, allowing the Strongest Brave Robot Corps to absorb it and destroy the remaining Primevals.

During the opening of the seventh episode of GaoGaiGar FINAL, a photograph of Leo and Kizuna is seen, with Jupiter in its background; this alludes to the viewer that Leo remains "alive"—albeit in spirit form—within Jupiter.

Swan White[edit]

Swan White
Japanese voice actor Miki Narahashi
English voice actor Erica Schroeder

The American GGG operator with a southern accent (in the original version, Swan does speak Japanese, but in more "amateur" and awkward manner than the Japanese spoken by the other characters). Generally serves as Dr. Leo Shishio's assistant. Speaks several languages and has some skill in martial arts. Sister of Stallion White.

Transferred to GGG America between the series and FINAL, but quickly returns to GGG. In the last episode of FINAL, it is revealed that her red pendant is "The Key to Victory" (literally - it activates a plate lock that, when combined with Taiga's pendant key and plate lock, forms the characters for Victory and unseals the Goldion Crusher).

Geki Hyuuma[edit]

Geki Hyuuma
Japanese voice actor Hisao Egawa
English voice actor Marc Thompson

3G's operations advisor. The walking epitome of the word "Macho", he sports a green mohawk and tanned muscles, as well as a distinct lack of shirt sleeves. Has a tendency to regularly break transceivers under any level of duress, so he apparently just carries several in his vest. Has no qualms about going to the field or fighting the enemy on foot. His personality was used as the basis for Goldymarg's super-AI.

Kosuke Entouji[edit]

Kosuke Entouji
Japanese voice actor Tsutomu Kashiwakura
English voice actor Wayne Grayson

The GGG Intelligence division operator. In charge of, among other things, maintaining GGG Baytower Base's computer network (apparently originally programmed by his father). Volfogg, as part of GGG Intelligence, reports to him rather than to Mikoto.

Is shown to have a deep connection to Volfogg (to the point of crying during the Contra Fall incident over his apparent death) and is not above sending a GGG Area on a kamikaze run to his aid.

In the intermission between the original series and GaoGaiGar Final, he meets, and starts a relationship with, Papillon Noir.

Kazuo Ushiyama[edit]

Kazuo Ushiyama
Japanese voice actor Hiroaki Ishikawa
English voice actor Marc Thompson

Tohru Nozaki[edit]

Minoru Inobuzaki[edit]

A man that was jealous because Kosuke Entouji got the job at GGG. He was turned into EI-15. Later, after the Tokyo Invasion works for the GGG Orbital Base.

Akiko Hirata[edit]

Akiko Hirata
Japanese voice actor Miki Inoue

Noriyuki Yaginuma[edit]

An older man, assigned as chief at the GGG Orbit Base while Taiga was serving solely as president of SDC (at the very beginning of FINAL). His personality is almost totally the opposite of Taiga's - he never seems to get excited, and moves slowly and reservedly. However, he still trusts in the staff, and therefore tends to end up in similar courses of action anyway.

Ryōsuke Takanohashi[edit]

One of the world's top ten scientists and apparent winner of the Nobel Prize. First introduced in the audio drama "Strongest Brave Beauty Corps" as a professor and director of the Gotenyama Science Center, where GGG entrusts him with a mysterious monolith they had discovered on the Moon.

Prior to the events of FINAL—when Raiga Shishioh is transferred back to GGG Space Center in America with Swan and Stallion White—Takanohashi is named as GGG's new Chief Scientist, replacing Leo Shishioh and taking his and Raiga's place in the Orbit Base's Main Order Room.

Apparently owns a Boxer dog, whom he takes for frequent walks.

He is named for and designed after GaoGaiGar 's producer at Sunrise, Ryosuke Takahashi.

HyoRyu[edit]

Hyoryu
Japanese voice actor Shinichi Yamada
English voice actor Christopher Kromer

GGG Super-AI Vehicle Machine, model number GBR-2. His vehicle form is a mobile crane, and he attacks with a rifle and a freezing ray, and a Chest Thriller that blows our freezing winds (which he often uses to put out flames). After the initial Primeval attack, HyoRyu is retrofitted with the ability to fire Ul-Tech beams in place of cold from his rifle and gun if he wishes. When first charged with "THE POWER", HyoRyu fires bolts of the mysterious energy from his weapons.

His name means "Ice Dragon".

Has a calm, collected, calculating (all compared to EnRyu) personality.

EnRyu[edit]

Enryu
Japanese voice actor Shinichi Yamada
English voice actor David Wills

GGG Super-AI Vehicle Machine, model number GBR-3. His vehicle form is a fire truck, and he attacks with a handgun and an infrequently used chest-mounted flamethrower, the "Chest Warmer." EnRyu also carries a Mirror Coating-equipped shield on his left arm, which is capable of returning attacks if it can fully absorb them. After the initial Primeval attack, EnRyu is retrofitted with the ability to fire Ul-Tech beams in place of heat from his handgun. When first charged with "THE POWER", EnRyu instead fires bolts of the mysterious energy from his handgun. There is a running gag focusing on EnRyu's inability to land correctly after aerial deployment - although he actually lands properly in vehicle mode once and later as the pilot of Liner Gao, suggesting it is his construction (or the weight of his Mirror Shield) that throws him off. He eventually gets used to it, and in FINAL he manages to save a falling elevator car while crashing.

His name means "Fire Dragon".

Has a hot, headstrong, brash personality. Even though they are twins with the same AI and the same training, the brothers have opposing personalities and sometimes argue. HyoRyu suggests in a passing remark at one point that EnRyu's hotness is a result of his overloading heater (to which EnRyu retorts that HyoRyu's cooling systems have cooled his heart as well).

ChoRyuJin[edit]

The Symmetrical-Docked form of HyoRyu and EnRyu, formed when their "SympaRate", a measure of their synchronization and unity of purpose, reaches 100%. ChoRyuJin is a defensive specialist with his Mirror-Coating Chestplate (which he uses at the risk of his life) and ability to use the Eraser Head tool. He also possesses HyoRyu and EnRyu's Gun, Rifle, and Tonfa attacks, usually used in "Double" form (firing from both sides at once). He can also fire all of his projectile weapons at once for a full-burst-style attack. After the initial Primeval attack, ChoRyuJin is retrofitted with the ability to fire Ul-Tech beams in place of heat or cold, which appear similar to most beam weapons in anime.

In technical specifications (and finally shown in FINAL), he also has the desperate final attack "Super Nova" - in which HyoRyu and EnRyu turn their respective dials to "Infinite" and simultaneously blast the enemy with their Chest attacks. Due to the placement of the chest plates on ChoRyuJin, he could not actually use this attack while Symmetrical-Docked, but it may imply that HyoRyu and EnRyu must have a similarly high SympaRate.

Volfogg[edit]

Volfogg
Japanese voice actor Katsuyuki Konishi
English voice actor Marc Thompson

GGG Intelligence Division Super-AI robot, model number GBR-4. Volfogg is a stealth-oriented robot whose human form is patterned on a ninja. His primary mission, from episode 9 or so, is to protect Special Agent Mamoru Amami. His construction date is unknown. He rides in the Multi-Dimensional Intelligence Submarine and Division III Susanoh, in which he appears to act as the Captain. He can combine with the non-intelligent vehicle robots GunDober and GunGlue to become Big Volfogg, a much stronger and better-defended combat model with long-range attacks. Volfogg's vehicle form is a police car.

Volfogg can cloak himself and disappear from view (a function of his built-in Mirror Coating ability). His "Melting Siren" is based on Galeon's roar, and has the ability to disrupt Zondar protective fields. Offensively, Volfogg has an oversized Mirror Coat shuriken ("Silver Cross"), which can be broken down into twin Mirror Coat throwing blades ("Silver Moon"). Big Volfogg has additional weapons from both GunDober ("4000 Magnum", a four-barrel machine gun) and GunGlue ("Murasame Sword", the rotating helicopter blades used as a melee weapon).

Volfogg is the only one of the Robo Corps whose entire transformation sequence was redone for GaoGaiGar FINAL - the rest use a mixture of stock footage from the original series with at least one new piece, resulting in noticeable color differences. Due to the addition of Volfogg's Mirror Coating to his Sanmi-Ittai (lit. unity of three) sequence and the alteration of the head designs of the GunMachines, all of the sequence is remastered and heavily altered.

Goldymarg[edit]

GGG Super-AI Multi-Robo, model number GMX-GH101. Constructed specifically to carry the Goldion Hammer and transform into a form, the Marg Hand, that allows GaoGaiGar to use it properly and without damage, Goldymarg is the largest of the Vehicle Machines, being the size of the Symmetrical-Docked units in his normal mode. He also has a Vehicle Mode called GoldyTank, which has a powerful Fusion Beam Cannon called Marg Cannon (in the Goldion Hammer's handle), and is capable of incredible feats, such as driving up the side of a building. In all modes, he is extremely tough and strong. His AI is patterned on Geki Hyuuma, giving him a hotheaded personality; he and Hyuuma bicker frequently, often on the subject of Goldymarg's duties.

Destroyed in Osaka during combat with Repli-Star GaoGaiGar, when Repli-Mamoru used Hell and Heaven against the Goldion Hammer. Goldymarg's Super-AI (along with a copy of the Goldion Hammer) was later embedded into the Gravity Shockwave Generating Division Tool "Goldion Crusher", which he was originally meant to simply combine with. Goldymarg was damaged by the backlash of using the Crusher to destroy Pisa Sol.

GenRyuJin[edit]

Result of Symmetrical Docking between HyoRyu and RaiRyu when their SympaRate exceeded 200%. This level was made possible when one or both of the robots were charged by "THE POWER", a mysterious energy taken from the planet Jupiter. His abilities include "Aurora Illusion" (which makes illusory ice copies as decoys) and "Thunder Blizzard" (which functions like Xiang Tou Long).

When GenRyuJin uses "Thunder Blizzard" in tandem with GouRyuJin's "Burning Hurricane", the result is called "Maximum Tou Long".

GouRyuJin[edit]

Result of Symmetrical Docking between EnRyu and FuuRyu when their SympaRate exceeded 200%. This level was made possible when one or both of the robots were charged by "THE POWER", a mysterious energy taken from the planet Jupiter. His main attack is "Burning Hurricane" (which works like Xiang Tou Long).

When GouRyuJin uses "Burning Hurricane" in tandem with GenRyuJin's "Thunder Blizzard", the result is called "Maximum Tou Long".

Piggy[edit]

A (relatively) small robot with a fundamental AI, built for serving "Robo Juice" to various members of the Strongest Brave Robot Corps. Its styling is feminine, like a maid or a waitress. Does not speak often, and in machine sounds when she does. She can be understood by the robots, and her AI is apparently developed enough to carry on a conversation. (This is extrapolated from her reply when Mic 13 first introduced himself to her. He flushed and blew steam in reaction, causing question as to just what she said.)

Appears to have a relationship of some sort with Volfogg - in addition to appearing with him in several scenes, she is seen holding his hand in their last scene in GaoGaiGar FINAL.

Space Development Corporation[edit]

Isamu Amami[edit]

Isamu Amami
Japanese voice actor Kouzou Shioya
English voice actor Ed Paul

Mamoru's (adoptive) father. Rather excitable. Often seen in the living room on the couch typing on a laptop.

Sakura Isogai[edit]

Kohtaroh Taiga's assistant and secretary (in his capacity as president of the Space Development Corporation).

She is secretly in love with Taiga—though as he is a married man, she would never directly admit it to him.

Civilians[edit]

Hana Hatsuno[edit]

Hana Hatsuno
Japanese voice actor Konami Yoshida
English voice actor Eileen Stevens

Childhood friend of Mamoru Amami, and closet love interest. Remains unaware of Mamoru's involvement in the events surrounding the Zonder invasion until Intestine Primeval captures her and several of the other children on board the ship that the Primeval had used as robo material. At this point she sees Mamoru in his Latio form on their return to StealthGao II - Mamoru is unaware of this, and it is not until near the last battle with the Z-Master that she reveals this information to him. Was under the impression that the real Mamoru was replaced by an alien - is relieved to know that Mamoru is the same one she has known all along, and becomes a steadfast supporter of Mamoru in the events to come. The other children soon thereafter declare that Mamoru and Hana should get married. She later reveals Mamoru's identity to the other children during the battle with the New Machine Species. In the epilogue, Hana comes to say goodbye to Mamoru wearing a wedding dress - the two share a kiss before Mamoru leaves with Galeon.

In FINAL, Hana is the one with whom the introduction begins, taking a litter of her dog's puppies on a walk when she finds the wounded Ikumi Kaidou (Arma) engaged in combat with Repli-Mamoru. After the battle concludes (leading to the destruction of a harbor but leaving Hana and her dogs unscathed), Hana takes the unconscious Kaidou back to her home and questions him as to Mamoru's actions and whereabouts. As the actions in the Trinary Solar System continue, Hana is often looked in upon to show the degradation of the situation on Earth. Despite the destruction being wrought upon the Earth, Hana remains determined that she will see Mamoru again. In the finale, she gets her wish, and is seen standing side-by-side with Mamoru and Kaidou before the memorial erected in honor of the GGG members who went missing in the crisis. She is also one of the singers for the first verse of Someday in the Sea of Stars: Character Version, which plays during said finale.

For much of the television series, Hana has an unfortunate tendency to be knocked unconscious. She almost compulsively repeats the phrase "I'm not scared" in times of mental stress - this was first taught to her by Mamoru as a coping mechanism.

Ai Amami[edit]

Ai Amami
Japanese voice actor Sayuri
English voice actor Eileen Stevens

Mamoru's adoptive mother.

Reiko Komori[edit]

Reiko Komori
Japanese voice actor Miki Narahashi
English voice actor Annice Moriarty

A somewhat stuck-up girl in Mamoru's class.

Displays superhuman strength (for her size) on occasion; namely, she can pull her friends up to her level when they are dangling below her.

For much of the television series, has an unfortunate tendency to be knocked unconscious.

Sueo "Ushi" Ushiyama[edit]

Sueo Ushiyama
Japanese voice actor Hiroaki Ishikawa

The youngest brother of GGG's Kazuo, a member of Mamoru's class. Knowledgeable about military machines.

Looks up to his eldest brother, as he's aware that he's a member of GGG; aspires to be like him when he grows up and boasts about his exploits often to his classmates, making no attempt to keep them a secret.

His name, Sueo, literally means "last-born."

For much of the television series, has an unfortunate tendency to be knocked unconscious.

Takayasu Sunou[edit]

A member of Mamoru's class. On the nerdy side, and relatively well-off. Enjoys impressing others with his ownership and knowledge of technical gadgets, but is usually one-upped by Reiko Komori soon afterwards.

For much of the television series, has an unfortunate tendency to be knocked unconscious.

Ayame[edit]

Cousin of Hana Hatsuno. An otaku specializing in knowledge of military hardware, pro wrestling and motorcycles, among other subjects. As revealed in the audiodrama "Strongest Brave Beauty Corps", Ayame learned this information to gain the attentions of her crush, a high school alumnus who ended up falling in love with a ladylike woman instead.

She is the owner of Ayame's PHS (also known as the "Ayame Eye").

It is unknown as to whether her last name is actually "Hatsuno."

Kaidou's foster mother (unnamed)[edit]

Often seen on the beach or harbour looking up at the sky. Aware that Kaidou is of alien origin, she was for a time used by Intestine Primeval as a host, who took this form for the specific purpose of psychological warfare against Kaidou. Remained hospitalized during the events of FINAL, and is seen being embraced by Kaidou during the epilogue.

Kizuna Shishioh[edit]

Mother of Guy Shishioh and wife of Leo. One of the astronauts on board the manned Jupiros-5 mission to Jupiter. Though she and her fellow astronauts were thought to be killed in the expedition, her spirit was saved by "THE POWER" emanating from Jupiter, where she is currently held in suspension between life and death.

In order to make an attempt to communicate with her son, she projected images of the "Three Sisters" onto his cybernetic eyes. However, these "sisters" could only appear to Cyborg Guy when he was in space.

Yosef[edit]

Hana's Dog. A large breed, usually seen literally dragging Hana along on walks. Although Yosef has a male name, the dog is possibly female, as Hana is seen caring for a litter of puppies in the first episode of GaoGaiGar FINAL.

Teacher of Mamoru's class (unnamed)[edit]

A young woman, easily flustered.

Tamayo Tezato[edit]

One of Reiko's friends/hangers-on.

Wakaba Suzuki[edit]

One of Reiko's friends/hangers-on.

Tsugio and Mitsuo Ushiyama[edit]

The elder brothers of Sueo and younger brothers of Kazuo. Tsugio is the second-born, Mitsuo the third-born. (As with their siblings, their names are literal translations of the order in which they were born; Keep in mind that this is not a naming scheme exclusive to this work. In Japan, this type of naming scheme for children is not uncommon.) Tsugio is also a good friend and classmate of Keita Aono from Betterman, as seen throughout the series and Ayame's middle school senior. Like their younger brother, they admire their older brother Kazuo.

Alouette[edit]

A young girl, altered to genius-level intelligence by BioNet.

She programmed the "Program Drive" section of GaoFighGar's Final Fusion sequence.

Alouette eventually suffered amnesia, allowing her to live a normal life but making reconstruction of GaoFighGar for Mamoru Amami's use impossible - as a result, the Super Neuromechanoid GaoGaiGo was made to replace it.

Sumire Kazamatsuri[edit]

High school friend of Mikoto Utsugi.

Appears in the PlayStation videogame The King of Braves GaoGaiGar: Blockaded Numbers, and very briefly near the end of GaoGaiGar FINAL.

NASA/GGG American Space Center[edit]

Liger Shishioh[edit]

Leo's Elder brother, Guy's Uncle and father of Renais-Kardif Shishio. Inventor of the Dimension Pliers, as well as the Solitary Wave Riser "Disc X", which was inspired by the being Nebula from Betterman. He is also the one who upgraded and altered Renais's cyborg components using a portable GS-Generator, saving her life (at the cost of needing a cooling coat to go out among normal people).

Unlike his brother, Liger dresses in a ridiculously gaudy outfit, including a yellow jumpsuit, green cape and stylized sunglasses. He rides a rocket-propelled skateboard (the counterpart to Leo's rocket skates) and displays another rocket hidden in his right glove during a comical battle with Leo.

After Leo's death, Liger becomes the chief science officer of the Gutsy Galaxy Guard.

Stallion White[edit]

Swan's brother. Mic Sounders 13th's Boom Robo Mode AI is based on his personality. Seen on an episode after the Tokyo Invasion on the BariBarien playing an electric guitar. Gave his sister Swan the pendant which becomes the key to victory.

Dimension Pliers[edit]

A trio of simple-AI robots designed by NASA for use with GaoGaiGar. Individually, the Pliers seem to possess no real abilities, but together they take the form of either a long-handled pair of pliers or a two-handed version that connects over each of GaoGaiGar's arms. The Pliers are able to erase dimensional spaces, which takes the appearance of literally grabbing the space in question with the Pliers and throwing it away. One of the Pliers appears to have a somewhat clumsy AI, and acts as comic relief by falling over, etc., on route to GaoGaiGar. The Pliers communicate in bleeps, and have little more than basic Three Laws programming installed (though they are seen waving GGG off in episode 3 of FINAL).

The three Pliers were later mass-produced as part of the Carpenters.

Mic Sounders the 13th[edit]

NASA-built Super-AI robot, model number XCR-13 ("XCR" standing for "Experimental Cosmo Robo"). Mic Sounders the 13th typically appears as a small red and blue robot riding around in an almost cartoonish yellow flying vehicle (Baribarien).When he was first introduced in the series, he escaped his containment unit and appeared to Mamoru during a Radi-robo (radio-controlled robot) competition. However, he can perform 'SYSTEM CHANGE' and take on his full form: a tall, blue and red mecha seemingly designed after a rock-and-roll singer. In the beginning, the only reason he was able to system change was because Swan was in danger. The yellow vehicle he rides in transforms into a mobile stage (Studio 7), and produces various gear for him, including a flying V keytar (GiraGiran VV, [pronounced "double-vee"]) and a series of microphones (DokaDokan V). Mic Sounders's abilities are based on sound from the various Discs stored in his Studio 7 (though Mic uses Disc M without the disc in FINAL).

  • Disc M: Using hypersonic frequency manipulation, shuts down specific mechanical processes of an enemy. In FINAL, Mic uses a riff of Disc M to knock Liger Shishio, Swan White and Stallion White unconscious. He later uses the suspension wires of Tower Bridge to play Disc M and shatter Percurio's Loud G-Stone. The song associated with Disc M is titled Power of Desire.
  • Disc P: Restores and increases the power of GS-Ride robots. The least-used of the Discs. It was first used after the Tokyo Invasion with the song:Power of Desire. The song associated with Disc P is titled Strongest Brave Robo Corps, the collective image song for the Mobile Unit.
  • Disc X: Direct annihilation, using a Solitary Wave Riser. This Disc was inspired by Liger Shishio's observations of the being Nebula from Betterman. Requires previous information on the target's atomic structure to precisely create the exact frequency that will destroy it. At times, the entire Mic Sounders Force uses Disc X simultaneously in a circular formation - the result takes the form of a huge blast of dark blue energy that destroys whatever it comes in contact with. This form of Disc X is only used in space. Disc X is the only Disc to have no vocals - it takes the form of dramatic organ music mixed with heavy guitar.
  • Disc F: Requires two Sounders working in concert to simultaneously duplicate the effects of Disc X and the Molecular Planar into a singular, super-destructive force. In FINAL, Mic plays it solo and is able to duplicate a Goldion Hammer effect with it, accompanied by a golden image of GaoFighGar that bull rushes the Soul Master Percurio and explodes. Disc F has two vocalists, and is titled Let's Final Fusion, GaoFighGar's image song.

Mic Sounders 1st-12th (Mic Force)[edit]

NASA-built Super-AI robots, model numbers XCR-1 through XCR-12. Their only cosmetic difference is that many areas that are red on the 13th (CosmoRobo Mode: Head, Feet, and Hands, BoomRobo Mode: Hips, Forearms, and miniature Back Arms) are the same light blue as the rest of the body on the first twelve.

The Mic Sounders Force, while occasionally quite powerful, is often less effective than the 13th acting alone. The 1st through 12th also have a tendency to be destroyed in any serious combat with surprising regularity. All twelve perish at Jupiter in the battle with the Z-Master.

Carpenters[edit]

Hundreds of fundamentally simple Super-AI robots, constructed by NASA and partially based on the design of the original Dimension Pliers. Stationed within Division II: Kanayago. Capable of rebuilding or disassembling mechanical or inorganic objects at a very rapid pace.

They are incapable of allowing humans to come to harm, as they obey Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics.

Six types of Carpenters are known to exist. The first three types are cosmetically (but perhaps not internally) identical to the three Pliers robots; the latter three are new designs, called Welding Worker (or Gensan), Flying Adhesive, and Senju-Kannon.

Chinese Scientific Aeronautics Division[edit]

Yán Lóng-Lǐ[edit]

Yán Měi-Líng[edit]

FuRyu[edit]

GGG Super-AI Vehicle Machine, model number GBR-6. FuRyu's vehicle form is a cement mixer; In humanoid form, the mixing drum is back-mounted, but can be angled up over the shoulders. He attacks with Fēng Dào Dàn (風道彈) missiles and wind blasts fired from the mixer. Capable of flying with the mixer Jao Dan Ji (攪拌槽). When in Symmetrical Docking form, the mixing drum takes the place of the forearm used by the other three Ryu brothers. Carries a powerful (self-destruct?) bomb in the compartment in his leg that, in the other Ryu brothers, would house the "hand part" - though it is not revealed until FINAL. FuRyu uses his chest dial far more often than any of the others (with RaiRyu a close second) - each level of power appears to have a totally different effect.

Has a similar personality to HyoRyu, and is considered the older brother.

RaiRyu[edit]

GGG Super-AI Vehicle Machine, model number GBR-7. RaiRyu's vehicle form is a dumptruck, and he attacks with lightning. In robot form, he uses the dumptruck's scoop as a shield. RaiRyu can also use the scoop as a hoverboard for flight. Unfortunately, he has the same unfortunate habit as EnRyu does: the inability to land correctly after aerial deployment. Unlike EnRyu, RaiRyu does not overcome this difficulty.

Has a similar personality to EnRyu, and is considered the younger brother.

GekiRyuJin[edit]

The Symmetrical-Docked form of FuRyu and RaiRyu. More offensive in nature than ChoRyuJin. Its trademark attack is "Shuāng Tóu Lóng" (雙頭龍 Two-Headed Dragon), which fires two mobile beams of energy in the shape of dragons. This attack is powerful enough to penetrate Zonder defense fields with nearly no effort, but gentle enough to retrieve Zonder cores without damaging them. Can also use FuRyu's powerful self-destruct bomb as an attack, as in FINAL. The only member of the Mobile Unit whose desperation attack (namely, the bomb) is usable in Symmetrical-Docked form, and the only one to remain Symmetrical-Docked during his last scene in FINAL.

Considered the "younger brother" to ChoRyuJin, and is overall closer to RaiRyu than FuRyu in personality.

United Nations[edit]

Rose Approval[edit]

Stern, aged Secretary General of the United Nations. First appeared in the PlayStation video game The King of Braves GaoGaiGar: Blockaded Numbers, and later in GaoGaiGar FINAL. She seems to have a long-standing relationship with Kohtaroh Taiga and Geki Hyuuma, possibly going back to when the men were children (she thinks of them as "Kohtaroh-Bouya" and "Geki-Bouzu", distinctly childish modes of referral), and goes out of her way to protect their and GGG's actions if necessary.

Her direct authorization is required to use GaoGaiGar's NASA-developed Grand Pressure tool. Following the formation of the Gutsy Galaxy Guard, her approval is technically also required for use of the Goldion Hammer (and Goldion Crusher) before they are deployed, though the keys given to Taiga (and later, Noriyuki Yaginuma and Swan White) represent her approval by proxy to the GGG personnel in the field.

Green Planet[edit]

Galeon[edit]

A gigantic, sentient mechanical lion, created by "the Green Planet's Protector", Cain, and powered by the G-Stone derived from the powers of his then-infant son, Latio. He was originally built by Cain as an "anti-program", a check-and-balance against the 11 Planetary Masters of Soul, though Cain would never get the opportunity to use it himself once the Z-Master began to expand its influence outward from the Purple Planet. Prior to the Green Planet's mechanization, Cain managed to send Galeon out with new programming: to take Cain's infant son to Earth, to protect him, and to ensure the destruction of the Z-Master.

Galeon arrived on Earth in 1998, leaving Latio with foster parents Ai and Isamu Amami during their trip to the North Pole, vanishing as quickly as he arrived. He would not appear again until EI-01's arrival in Earth orbit in 2003, where he would break through EI-01's Barrier System and strike a crippling blow to it, though not destroying it completely. Shortly afterward, he would find and retrieve the dying astronaut Guy Shishioh—him and his shuttle a victim of EI-01's sudden appearance in orbit—and return him to the Space Development Corporation in Japan, thereafter placing himself in a dormant state until he was needed again. During this time, Galeon's technology was analyzed by the Japanese government, and the Gutsy Geoid Guard was founded for the purpose of implementing Galeon's technology against any future alien attack. Galeon would awaken again in 2005 following the emergence of EI-02.

Galeon is powered by the first GS-Ride system known to humankind, and possesses one of the first known Super-AI systems, granting him self-awareness (though he can only communicate through lion-like roars). A panel behind his head conceals a G-Stone-activated holographic information device containing much of the collected technology and knowledge of the Green Planet, including (but not limited to) G-Stone and GS-Ride manufacture and the scope of the Zonder threat. This data is adapted and put to good use by GGG in completing their own GaoMachines and Super-AI robots. The information device also contains a partial, damaged personality imprint of Cain, whose purpose was to restore Latio's memories of infanthood; it was only partially successful until Galeon's program was temporarily restored through use of "THE POWER".

A humanoid entity with the ability to use G-Stone energy (such as Cain, Latio, Cyborg Guy or Evoluder Guy) can perform "Fusion" with Galeon, synchronizing their G-Stone energy with his to form the humanoid-shaped mechanoid GaiGar. In this mode, the humanoid gains control of Galeon's body, though Galeon himself is still active as the "head" and is capable of communicating.

While alone, Galeon is outfitted with a pair of thrusters on either side of his midriff that allow for long-distance atmospheric and orbital flight. He can also employ a special subsonic roar (as first used against EI-01) to temporarily nullify Zonderian Barrier Systems. The Melting Siren used by the GGG combined Super-AI robot Big Volfogg would later be based on this same ability.

Following the defeat of the Z-Master, Latio (known on Earth as Mamoru Amami) returned to the gigantic G-Crystal located at the former site of the Tri-Star Solar System in order to fully restore Galeon's original program. He eventually succeeded in doing so in time for Evoluder Guy to use Galeon's true form against the 11 Planetary Masters of Soul. This original version of Galeon is capable of releasing the full power of the "Genesic Aura", which neutralizes the powers of the Loud G-Stone in its wake.

Cain[edit]

The father of Latio (Mamoru) and presumed leader of the Green Planet. Cain constructed the G-Stones and transcribed a portion of his awareness into his creation, the mechanoid lion Galeon, and sent his son to the Blue Planet (Earth) to avoid mechanization by the 31 Primevals. He originally intended for himself to conduct Fusion with Galeon, but was forced by circumstances to instead become embedded in its Super-AI. This AI was copied at least once - the resulting backup was stored in the G-Crystal in the event of damage to Galeon. Cain's personality fragment, designed to restore Mamoru's memories of childhood, was damaged during Galeon's descent to Earth, and would not be repaired permanently until Galeon returned to the G-Crystal. Before that, it was temporarily restored by GaoGaiGar's immersion in "THE POWER".

Cain, as one of the Green Planet, possessed flight and numerous abilities, including "Two Powers into One". However, unlike Mamoru, he does not appear to have been able to detect or purify Zonders.

Cain's wife (unnamed)[edit]

A mysterious woman with long (blond?) hair who appears numerous times in the final three episodes of FINAL, in addition to one speaking line in Episode 5. Only shown in a frequently repeated image with Cain, soothing a baby Latio (Mamoru Amami). Appears to also be the Super-AI for the G-Crystal, due to the nature of her speaking lines. In particular, the one in Episode 5 is (unknown to the viewer) a progress report on the restoration of Genesic Galeon, and the one in Episode 6 is clearly shown to be coming from the Genesic Drive crystal that Mikoto smashes her hand into. Mentions that destruction is the start for a new hope from zero, the challenge that infinite possibility brings. Likely would have served a similar role to Mikoto had Cain been the one to pilot Galeon as he originally intended. Age, identity, history unknown.

Cain's wife has a deep connection to Mikoto for reasons not yet explained. In addition to the fact that Mikoto seems to be the only one who can hear her words, Mikoto's last scene shows Cain's wife fading in place of her for the last few frames. Whether this will be elaborated on further in future GaoGaiGar works is unknown.

Red Planet[edit]

Ikumi Kaidou (Arma)[edit]

The last survivor of the Arma units built to support the Soldato Division. As with all other Arma, Kaidou is a genetically altered clone of Latio (Mamoru Amami) possessing enhanced telekinetic powers. The Armas were meant to serve the same role for the Soldato Division as Mamoru serves for GaoGaiGar - that is, the purification of Zonder Cores and eventually the destruction of the complete Z-Master program. After the Red Planet was mechanized, the baby Arma was taken to Earth on the J-Ark, where he was later adopted by an elderly woman only referred to as "Mother" (actual name unknown). Ikumi Kaidou was thus raised as a normal human on Earth, only revealing his telekinetic powers to the viewers when he engaged in ranged combat with the Machine King Pizza. Due to the method in which Kaidou did so, nothing strange was noticed by the rest of the cast at this time.

When EI-01 absorbed much of Tokyo in a bid to destroy GGG and Zonderize Earth, Kaidou was blown out of a window of the exploding Tokyo Tower. He did this in order to fake his own death so that he could go to Purify Pizza and Pinchernone (reverting them to being Soldato J-002 and Tomoro 0117, respectively). At this point, Arma began the fight against the 31 Primevals, assisting Soldato J as necessary. He remained on the exploding King J-Der, having fulfilled his duty as a Warrior of Abel, without knowing that the influx of "THE POWER" would result in their being blown far outside of the known universe.

From their unique perspective, Arma and J determined that the universe was shrinking as a result of the actions of the 11 Soul Masters. Returning to the solar system, Arma assisted Mamoru Amami in escaping the clutches of the Soul Masters, and traveled to Earth in order to stop Repli-Mamoru from reclaiming the Pas-Q Machine. This resulted in a telekinetic battle which led to Arma's defeat - he was subsequently rescued and cared for by Hana Hatsuno. Upon returning to consciousness, Arma went to GGG just in time to stop Repli-Mamoru from betraying Guy Shishio.

Arma then assisted GGG in their efforts to reach the Trinary Solar System, accompanying them through the Galloreia Comet. On Repli-Earth, Arma was captured by the 11 Soul Masters and placed in the computer core of Pia Decem Pit - in the second battle with King J-Der, this connection was reconfigured such that damage to Pia Decem's Generating Armor was instead inflicted on Arma. Arma escaped this imprisonment when Pia Decem was destroyed, and helped to distract Palus Abel from the use of the Goldion Crusher.

Arma's telekinetic abilities are as powerful as those of Stomach Primeval, and he also possesses the ability to use a variant of Purification. Palus Abel refers to him as a "bio-computer", and Pasder speaks of Arma as a "destruction machine". Arma is also capable of sending a freeze command to a J-Jewel, which can utterly neutralize its ability to output power - this command loses its effectiveness in proximity to a G-Stone.

Ikumi Kaidou's personality is very low-key and taciturn. He doesn't dare make friends because he thinks that if no one knows him, no one will mourn for him when he leaves. Mamoru firmly disagrees with him on this point due to his adoptive mother. As a result, Kaidou spends most of his time prior to revealing his true identity with his hands in his pockets, utterly silent.

  • Note: Arma means "Weapon" in Italian and Spanish.

Soldato J (#002)[edit]

Soldato J
Japanese voice actor Mitsuaki Madono
English voice actor Kevin T. Collins

Only known surviving member of the Soldato Battalion, a series of combat cyborgs developed by the Red Planet's leader, Abel. They would function as commanders of the J-Ark fleet, and perform Fusion with them to fight the Z-Master. Abel's extensive preparations would not be enough, however, as the failure to unite Soldato, Alma bioweapon, living computer, and J-Ark battleship into a cohesive team would lead to the failure of the world's defenses and, eventually, the planet's mechanization. As a Cyborg, Soldato J has impressive strength and speed. The green scarf attached to his armor can extend and harden into a pair of wings for flight, and the left gauntlet contains a Radiant Ripper, an energy sword. While normally used with both hands, the Radiant Ripper can be used while still attached to the gauntlet, as seen in FINAL.

As one of the two surviving members of the Battalion, Soldato J 002 fought alone (his J-Ark's main computer—Tomoro 0117—had been lost to Zonder infection and his J-Ark was sent into space to protect its infant Alma on board), going so far as to confront Arm Primeval, one of the leaders behind the offensive on his world. J would confront Arm alone, and barely lost their confrontation, forced to flee into the wasteland that was now his planet. He was subsequently captured by his own living computer—transformed into the Zonderian Pinchernone—and converted into the Zonderian Pizza, the memory of his proud past sealed away.

As Pizza, he and Pinchernone would accompany the Zonderian "terminal" program Pasder to the "Blue Planet"—Earth—with the order to infect all of humanity with Zonder Metal. Even as a Zonderian, however, Pizza would have brief flashes of the time before he was mechanized. He became a great rival of the GGG Mobile Unit commander Guy Shishioh; through his duels with Guy, his old pride began to recover, along with his a sense of his old purpose. In a burst of defiance, he protected his rival from a direct attack from Pasder, leaving him critically wounded. He would be saved by his Arma, who had landed on Earth and had adopted the identity of Ikumi Kaidou. Kaidou performed Purification on Pizza and Pinchernone, restoring to them their true forms and memories.

Following his restoration, Soldato J would dedicate himself to his original mission once again: to destroy the Z-Master. To this end he would re-unite with his team in his J-Ark (crashed within Mt. Aso in Kyūshū, Japan) and wait for the arrival of the 31 Machine Primevals. Upon the Primevals' arrival on Earth, he showed just how powerful the original Red Planet fleet could have been had it been properly organized. They began an independent mission to destroy the Primevals—ignoring the battles of the Gutsy Galaxy Guard, going over their heads and even clashing with them head-on. As J and GGG realized they had a common goal, however, they began to grudgingly help each other to defeat the 31 Primevals.

During this time, J would also confront and destroy the other surviving member of the Soldato Battalion: Soldato J #019, who had since pledged his loyalty to the Z-Master and had his J-Jewel replaced with a Zonder Crystal (this story was told in the manga serial "Wings of Light and Darkness").

In the final battle with the Z-Master, J and Kaidou entered Heart Primeval and set "THE POWER" in the J-Ark to overload, creating a cascade reaction that would destroy the Z-Master from within (also critically damaging King J-Der in the process). Judging this to be a fair trade, J and his team were fully willing to sacrifice themselves in order to end the Zonder threat once and for all. It was revealed that the J-Ark survived the final fight, falling into a wormhole generated by "THE POWER" and emerging at a point 90 million light-years outside of the universe. There, the J-Ark began its slow restoration process. From their unique perspective, Tomoro 0117 determined that the universe was contracting in size; tracking down the source of the contraction, the J-Ark reappeared within Earth's solar system in orbit of Jupiter, where they found an exhausted Mamoru Amami and a mysterious device called the Pas-Q Machine. As Mamoru asked Kaidou to take this device to Earth, Pia Decem of the 11 Planetary Masters of Soul attacked; Kaidou returned to Earth with the Machine, but J retreated to the Tri-Star System with Mamoru.

Soldato-J and his J-Ark covered Mamoru's retreat to the G-Crystal but were themselves captured by the other Masters of Sol and imprisoned on the repli-Earth created by the Pas-Q Machine (at the island of Mont Saint-Michel). They would thereafter be freed by Renais-Kerdif Shishioh and Mikoto Utsugi, only to face Palus Abel—the 11 Masters' leader whose program was based on Abel herself. She would soon after reveal that she had captured Ikumi Kaidou and was using him as the living computer core of Pia Decem Pit; unable to attack Pia Decem directly because of this, King J-Der was soon forced into a fight with a mind-controlled Guy Shishioh. The resulting clash between J-Quath and Goldion Hammer left both weapons destroyed. Palus Abel routed remote commands through Kaidou to shut down the J-Ark and Soldato J's own J-Jewel; Pia Decem and Pillnus captured him and Renais Kerdif-Shishioh soon after, though they would escape through sheer accident—bringing Renais' G-Stone into proximity with Soldato-J's J-Jewel restored them both, activating their Hyper Modes. It is at this point that J's helmet is partially broken, allowing the only view of his eyes in the series. With the subsequently rectivated J-Ark, they proceeded to confront Palus Abel aboard the Pia Decem Pit.

Despite many fans using the translation "Soldat", the correct (and official) translation is Soldato. Soldato is an Italian word (like Arma and Pizza) and means "Soldier". Soldat, though, does mean "Soldier" in several languages as well, including Swedish

Soldato J appears to be a homage to Cyborg 002 of Cyborg 009, who together share a similar design, common number, personality, and fondness for flying. Sunrise and Toei Animation collaborated on a Cyborg 009 adaption in the late 1970s, the era of which GaoGaiGar attempts to thematically honor.

Tomoro 0117[edit]

Tomoro 0117
Japanese voice actor Tsutomu Kashiwakura
English voice actor Jamie McGonnigal

The main computer of the J-Ark, he was Zonderized and turned into the Machine King Pinchernone. He was rescued from death and purified by Arma following the Great Tokyo Upheaval and took his place as the computer of the J-Ark. He handles most, if not all of the J-Ark's basic functions, including movement, generating armour, and repair.

Tomoro is able to generate enough power from the J-Jewel on his own to sustain his functionality, as well as to fire ES Missiles or even the J-Quath.

Soldato J (#019)[edit]

See also: "Black" Soldato J (#019)

One of the J warriors who, like J-002 fell to wandering in the desert after the Red Planet's defeat, having lost his Arma somewhere along the way. Deciding to take power instead of dying, he smashed his own J-Jewel and replaced it with Zonder metal, becoming a Zondarian. In this form he mechanized many planets and killed anyone who recognized him until he found his missing Arma. He tried to kill her, but with the last of her strength she restored his memories of being a warrior against mechanization, but failed to purify him. J-019 went partially mad with grief, having killed his Arma and having memories of being a soldier but having no way to oppose the Primevals with his Zonderized body. He somehow obtained a doll-like version of his deceased Arma, a thing that would look and act somewhat like her but was unable to use any telekinetic or purifying powers. With her he managed to travel to Earth to confront GGG and J-002.

At earth he challenged J002, manipulated by the Primevals into attacking. The pair fought and J-002 was wounded, but was rescued by Arma, much to the surprise of J-019, who didn't believe there was still a living Arma left in the world. After that fight ended in a draw, J-019 attacked the GGG Orbital Base, only to be stopped by J-002 for a continuation of their battle while Arm Primeval fought GGG. J-002 won the fight, but when Arma came to purify the Zonderized 019 pieces of the wreckage flew in to kill him. The Primevals plan had been to use J-019 to distract Arma with the Purification, allowing them to kill him. However, J-019 threw himself in the path of the wreckage, sacrificing himself in the process. After having made his peace with himself and J002 before dying, his J-Ark drifted off to wander in the stars, presumably forever.

Arma (#019)[edit]

A female Arma originally paired with Soldato-J 019, she was killed by him as a Zonder. However, she managed to restore his memories with the last of her strength, but was unable to purify him. After she died J-019 took along a 'doll' version of her that couldn't use any sort of powers. After the battle with J-002 the doll stayed with her dying J as their J-Ark drifted off.

Abel[edit]

The leader of the Red Planet, never actually seen in the series or in FINAL. The program Palus Abel is said to have equal abilities to her. She was the creator of the J-Ark fleet, along with the Soldato-J division and Arma series. Presumably died with the Red Planet. Along with "Cain", her name is a Biblical reference to Cain and Abel, the children of Adam and Eve.

Japanese Government[edit]

Momoko Kuuga[edit]

Better known as ID5 agent Pink Cougar. She was found by BioNet's Professor Mozuma, who modified her body into that of a cyborg to save her life; she later joined their ranks as a double agent. Deceased.

Kouichi Entouji[edit]

Also known as ID5 Agent Blue Monkey. Deceased. Father of GGG's Kousuke Entouji.

Kah-suke[edit]

Better known as ID5 Agent Black Crow. Actually an intelligent, talking(?), crow-like bird. Deceased.

Kirio Inugami[edit]

Intelligence agent who was said to have a pivotal part in the GGG's groundwork. Deceased; killed in action on November 2, 2004. He was apparently friends with Kosuke Entouji, judging from the latter's interactions with Volfogg.

Supposedly, he was going to permanently transfer to the GGG Intelligence Department once the organization had been established.

Volfogg's Super AI is based on his personality.

Misao Toba[edit]

Chasseur[edit]

Renais Kerdif-Shishioh[edit]

Raiga Shishioh's daughter by Freres Kerdif. She was abducted by the criminal organization BioNet in 2002 shortly following their murder of her mother (a BioNet agent herself gone rogue) and turned into a cyborg. Over the course of two years, she was trained as a killing machine, and ordered to swear loyalty to her captors; she chose to defy them instead, attacking them with the weapons they had equipped her with. For this outrage, she was chained up in a BioNet facility to die in 2004, where she was discovered in time and rescued by the French intelligence agency (and GGG partner organization) Chasseur.

Dr. Raiga—who was visiting France at the time—volunteered to help save Renais's life, managing to do so with the addition of a portable GS-Generator to her cybernetics. Renais would eventually join Chasseur in an ongoing effort to destroy the organization that modified her, showing no mercy against its members.

Far less of her body was altered than Cyborg Guy's. Her modifications, however, have a problem with generating extreme heat—a flaw in BioNet's design that even Raiga wasn't able to properly remedy. As a result of this, Renais must always wear a cooling coat over her body or risk overheating. Any normal human being that touches her without proper protection risks suffering severe burns. However, Soldato J is perfectly able to touch her without injury, thanks to the fact that the Red Planet was a world aflame. For this reason, as well as the mutual respect they gained from their fights with their counterparts Pillnus and Pia Decem, Renais and J began to develop a relationship at the very end of FINAL, where she piloted King J-Der in conjunction with J. The results of this incident may have been the reason for the usage of Ikumi Kaidou as one of the Head Divers of the Super Neuromechanoid GaoGaiGo.

Like Cyborg Guy, she is able to enter an Equip form, and access Hyper Mode in certain conditions. In both situations, her cooling coat expands and stiffens into lateral "vanes" to handle the additional heat exchange required.

The spelling of her name is not always consistent; her first name in various sources has been rendered as "Lune", "Rune", "Renat" and "Renée;" her mother's maiden name is frequently rendered as "Cardiff" and occasionally as "Cirdef." This Wiki uses the most commonly used spelling, which is consistently used in GaoGaiGar FINAL material and the second half of the novel "The King of Braves GaoGaiGar: Queen of Leo <Leon Reine>."

Papillon Noir[edit]

A woman from the Amazon jungles who joined GGG shortly after Mamoru left Earth. Was first introduced in a Betterman audio drama. Papillon performed many experiments with hallucinogenic compounds while studying as a graduate student, in a successful attempt to gain the mysterious "Sensing Mind" ability. This power is not clearly explained, but it seems to provide her with instinctual knowledge of events happening elsewhere (even across universes) and even the future. She developed a relationship with Kosuke Entouji during her time at GGG, and is often seen brushing his hair. She claims that if she does not do this, it could end up like Geki Hyuuma's (though this was likely just a jab at the latter's bizarre haircut).

Papillon died while confronting Repli-Mamoru, merely an instant after the Pas-Q Machine underwent a misfire that duplicated herself and everything else in the Tri-Solar System. Her death affected Entouji greatly - he grieved nonstop until meeting the Repli-Jin of her formed by the misfire.

Papillon Noir (Repli-jin)[edit]

A clone of Papillon Noir created by an accidental misfire of the Pas-Q Machine that duplicated the entirety of the Earth and everything on it, along with the Orbit Base and the Moon, an instant before the death of the original Papillon. Papillon was the only Repli-Jin of a human that survived for more than a few seconds, and escaped to Earth in Kushinada as the Orbit Base fell out of its orbit (to be retrieved and its residents reprogrammed by the Soul Masters). The Sensing Mind, which she retained, made her aware that the real Papillon was dead, and she awaited GGG's arrival in the Space Development Corporation's headquarters. Upon their arrival, Papillon joined them for the remainder of FINAL. She was unaffected by, and creates an antidote for, Palparepa's nerve relaxing Paras Particles thanks to the experiments she performed to gain the Sensing Mind.

At the end of FINAL, Papillon disappears with the destruction of Pisa Sol. She says to Entouji not to grieve, that she will be returning to his heart forever, and vanishes. This seems to bring Entouji to peace with her death. She has additional speaking lines afterwards, where she explains that every one of us has the same power as the G-Stone - to overcome any difficulties that lie ahead of us as long as we have courage.

KouRyu[edit]

Chausseur Super-AI robot, model number GBR-9. Her name means "Light Dragon." Her vehicle mode is a MASER truck, the type of truck often seen fighting Godzilla. Unlike those trucks, KouRyu's MASER is a highly effective weapon. She has a cheerful, bubbly personality that belies her highly advanced processing speed. HyoRyu calls her a tomboy in episode 1 of FINAL. Her primary attack is "Primrose no Tsuki", or "Primrose Moon", which is simply a blast from her shoulder-mounted MASER. KouRyu also possesses an internal Projectile-X in place of the regular chest attack, which is designed to overload a target with G-Stone energy.

Though KouRyu's ability to land properly after aerial deployment is never shown, she has similarly comical difficulty maneuvering in space using an SP Pack, particularly when it comes to stopping.

AnRyu[edit]

Chauseur Super-AI robot, model number GBR-8. Her name means "Dark Dragon." Her vehicle mode is a combat truck carrying two rows of missiles (with an impressive total of 210 missiles per shot). AnRyu is the more serious of the two siblings, as with HyoRyu and FuuRyu. Her main attack is "Cherbourg no Ame", or "Cherbourg Rain" (a reference to the city of Cherbourg-Octeville), which fires a full salvo of her missiles. She also possesses an internal Projectile-X in place of the normal chest attack, which is designed to overload a target with G-Stone energy.

TenRyuJin[edit]

The Symmetrical-Docked form of KouRyu and AnRyu, formed when their SympaRate reaches 100%. The most offensively oriented of the three normal Symmetrical-Dock Robots. Capable of emulating EI-01's multi-directional laser attack by firing chaff(?) and sensor-blocking missiles, then reflecting MASER beams off of the resulting junked matter on and around the enemy - this is the Dance of Light and Dark, Hikari to Yami no Mai. (She notes that the calculations to pull off this attack are very tedious.) Also possesses a technique called Double Nail Fire, which is basically identical to J-Der's Double Plasma Swords.

KouRyu and AnRyu also display a desperation attack in FINAL called Projectile X Lite - this appears to overload the enemy with raw GS-Ride energy, which they use to destroy a Loud G-Stone.

Porc-Auto[edit]

GGG Super-AI robot, model number GBR-10. Intelligence robot similar in basic design to Volfogg, though is incapable of Sanmiitai and has a more limited range of abilities. His base vehicle (a Mini Cooper) also differs greatly from that of Volfogg's.

Built to assist Renais Kerdif-Shishioh in her operations as a member of Chasseur. Though Renais herself wasn't aware of it until it was too late, his personality was modeled on that of Erik Fowler (A.K.A. "Gentleman"), Renais' murdered partner.

Destroyed in action in 2005, though Raiga managed to save his personality in backup form. Whether or not Porc-Auto was later rebuilt using this backup is not known, but a red Mini Cooper with the license plate "I(heart)3G" shows up briefly in the prologue to the second episode of FINAL.

Erik "Gentleman" Fowler[edit]

Chasseur agent; former partner of Renais Kerdif-Shishioh. Killed during a mission with Renais involving retrieval of a BioNet agent from the Great Wall of China following the destruction of Spine Primeval (ZX-05).

Porc-Auto's Super-AI was based on his personality.

"Fictional" characters[edit]

GaGaGatchi[edit]

(Titlular) main character of the fictional children's animated television series GaGaGatchi airing on the Japanese BNB television network. Small, gnome-like creature wearing armor bearing a vague resemblance to GaoGaiGar. Holds a shield emblazoned with the letter "G" in his left hand and wields a large hammer (also called "GaGaGatchi") in his right.

Sueo Uchiyama also mentions that he can wield a "Blade of Justice." His brothers mention the existence of another one of his weapons, the "GaGaGa Cutter."

One of GaGaGatchi's attacks with the "GaGaGatchi" hammer is "Final GaGaGatchi", in which he swings it above his head with both hands and brings it down onto his opponent.

GaGaGatchi's name is derived from "GaGaGaZi", Studio 7's original name for GaoGaiGar at the start of production.

King Snow[edit]

Rival character of GaGaGatchi in the fictional children's animated television series GaGaGatchi. Small, gnome-like creature clad in a suit of armor bearing a vague resemblance to King J-Der. Holds a shield emblazoned with the letter "S" in his left hand and wields a large, double-edged pole in his right.

Sunou Takayasu mentions that he has an advantage in speed over GaGaGatchi.

Other[edit]

"Three Sisters"[edit]

Three identical, illusory young women with fixed expressions. They appear only to Cyborg Guy while he is in space. They are, in fact, semi-telepathic projections from Kizuna Shishioh within Jupiter, fed by "THE POWER" to her son's cybernetic eyes. Each is emotional aspect of Kizuna, one of them usually appearing with a message for Guy.

  • MesoMeso: Girl in green with a sad, tearful expression. Appears when Guy is about to encounter danger.
  • MukaMuka: Girl in red with an angry expression. Appears when Guy is discouraged or is being misled.
  • NikoNiko: Girl in yellow with a happy expression. Appears when Guy is safe, or has escaped from danger.

Zonder Robos[edit]

When a living humanoid being (human or alien) is infected with Zonder Metal, it becomes a "Zonder." Zonders will almost invariably fuse with mechanical objects and inorganic matter to form a biomechanical "Zonder Robo." These Zonder Robos immediately seek out and eliminate the source of their stress, at which point they begin to produce Zonder Spores and mature into Zonder Metal Plants. Nearly all of them possess fast regeneration, can fuse with machines that are not protected by a G-Stone or GS Drive, and a force field that is referred to in Super Robot Wars Alpha 3 as a zondar barrier.

A Zonderian can fuse with similar types of material to form a "Zonderian Robo," bearing similar properties to that of a Zonder Robo (though several orders stronger).

All Zonder Robos and Zonderian Robos are collectively identified by GGG using the code "EI" (standing for "Extraterrestrial Intelligence").

EI-02[edit]

"Garbage Amalgam Robo." Created by the Four Machine Kings' infusion of Zonder Metal into Kinzo Kodakarayama. The Zonder uses a pair of beam weapons attached to its arms; a freezing beam (generated by many freezers and air conditioners) and a heat ray (made up of many microwaves) to attack. It is capable of low-altitude flight using thousands of electric fans deployed from its back. The Zonder can also morph into a high-speed train. EI-02 resembles a Pegasus due to psychological influence from Kinzo, a homeless man who had lost all his money gambling on horse races.

EI-03[edit]

"Iron Ball Machine Robo." Created by Pinchernone's infusion of Zonder Metal into Bomber Death (bomba shinigami), reigning champion of the SMW pro wrestling league. Fused with the wrestling ring he was in and a nearby demolition crane to create a Zonder Robo with tethered hands that detach and combine to form a wrecking ball. Other abilities include using its hands like giant saws and surging red electricity from its body.

EI-04[edit]

"Triple Locomotive Robo." Created through Polonaise's infusion of Zonder Metal into Yuichi Yamanoguchi, a troubled boy who envied the power of steam locomotives. Fused with a nearby steam locomotive to create a Zonder Robo with firebox arms that launch a rapid barrage of coal-shaped fireballs. This Zonder Robo's core reverted to Zonder form and escaped before Purification could be performed.

EI-05[edit]

"Space Shuttle Robo." When the Zonder-infected Yuichi Yamanoguchi escaped from GaoGaiGar, he was instructed by Pizza to fuse with a Space Development Corporation space shuttle mounted to a new type of engine which can also be used to attack opponents. Cyborg Guy managed to prevent this Zonder Robo from reaching orbit by removing the shuttle's secondary boosters and puncturing its main propellant tank with GaiGar's claw hand. EI-05 also possesses a large talon-like claw in its appearances in the Super Robot Wars series.

EI-06[edit]

"Trailer Robo." Created through Primarda's infusion of Zonder Metal into Isao Takayama, a truck driver infuriated with bumper-to-bumper traffic. Fused with his tank truck to create a constantly rolling Zonder Robo with a gigantic steamroller for a lower body, crushing and absorbing into itself anything on the road ahead of it. It is also armed with a large claw and energy draining waves.

EI-07[edit]

"Tanker Robo." Created by Pinchernone's infusion of Zonder Metal into a depressed ship's captain who was fired after his ship ran aground. This Zondar was over 500 meters in height, and absorbed approximately 100,000 gallons of gasoline, which allowed it to detonate with incredible force when defeated. It also squirted explosive fuel from its mouth. GaoGaiGar managed to trap it using the Dividing Driver, and was saved from the explosion by ChoRyuJin's Eraser Head.

EI-08[edit]

"300-series Shinkansen Robo." The result of a man who was apparently afflicted by the Shinkansen and went missing one night. This Zonder's first form was a Shinkansen-style bullet train, similar to LinerGao, and then a tall robot form. This Zonder generated an immensely powerful electromagnetic pulse as it moved, and could fire powerful beams of energy from its eye. GaoGaiGar and ChoRyuJin worked together to defeat this Zonder: ChoRyuJin nullified the Zonder's EMP using the Eraser Head, allowing GaoGaiGar to execute Hell and Heaven to remove the core.

It is interesting to note that the episode EI-08 appeared in aired around a month before the 300 Series Shinkansen went active.

EI-09[edit]

"Airship Robo." Created through Pizza's infusion of Zonder Metal into a troubled businessman, fused with a blimp. EI-09 created a giant flammable cloud that covered the sun for several days. Formed a complete Zonder Metal Plant, but was destroyed by GaoGaiGar and the Eraser Head before it could fire its Zonder Spores across the world.

EI-10[edit]

"Bike Robo." Created by using Zonder Metal on a pizza girl who was always late. Defeated by the Pencil Launcher holding it in place long enough for GaoGaiGar to use Hell and Heaven. EI-10 could turn its fingers into tentacles and separate into dozens of motorcycles.

EI-11[edit]

"Submarine Robo." Created through Pinchernone's infusion of Zonder Metal into a sailor who was disqualified from captaining the newly christened Ryuuguu 9000 submarine. It proceeded to fuse into said submarine, accidentally taking Mamoru and Hana, then descending into the deep sea, again merging with a Navy submarine. It was defeated with Broken Magnum (though the final blow isn't shown) by GaoGaiGar in the Mariana Trench through a complex plan using the Dividing Driver to protect from deep sea pressure, rescuing Mamoru and Hana. EI-11 possesses large pincer claws and can launch homing torpedoes from its body.

EI-12[edit]

"Particle Accelerator Robo." Created through the infection of the work-absorbed Head Professor Tohru Nozaki, who covertly established a complete Zonder Metal plant in the Isolde particle accelerator in Hokkaido. This time, "Nozaki" reported straight to Pasder, and all four Machine Kings were present, so this could be considered one of the first major fights. They had successfully lured HyoRyu, EnRyu and GaiGar deep within the facility into an electromagnetic field until Volfogg, a factor unforeseen by the Zonderians, infiltrated the south wing and the hostages and the mobile team from their respective traps. With the Dividing Field set, EI-12 was defeated by GaoGaiGar's Hell and Heaven, destroying the Zonder Metal plant in effect.

Tohru Nozaki went on to work for the GGG Orbit Base.

EI-13[edit]

"Mascot Machine Robo." Created through Polonaise's Zonder Metal infusion of a part-time worker at the Waterpolis Amusement Park in Okinawa, dressed as the park mascot Uppo. Desiring to ride the new Shooting Coaster, he proceed to merge with the said coaster while Mamoru and Hana rode it, able to bend the tracks to his will. Trapped and unconscious by the speed and g-force of EI-13, Mamoru was set as a means to lure Galeon out of GGG base according to Polonaise's plan. After Volfogg's intervention, it merged with the tracks itself to become a long sea serpent-like Zonder capable of coiling and emitting electric surges. After Volfogg and Galeon freed Mamoru and defeated this form, EI-13 finally morphed into a giant version of Uppo armed with energy whips from the finger tips. It was soon defeated after Guy's arrival by GaoGaiGar's Hell and Heaven.

EI-14[edit]

"Military Transport Robo." Originally took the form of a large, military-transport aircraft (as the name implies). On board, the Zonderized human acting as its core was giving orders to remote-controlled tanks and helicopters who fought with Volfogg in order to capture Mamoru (finally recognized as a threat to the Zonder mission). After the jig was up, the plane seemingly crash-landed itself into the area where Volfogg had destroyed the remote-controlled vehicles, but had actually combined with their strewn pieces to take its true form, a military soldier-like robot much resembling the MS-06 Zaku II of the Mobile Suit Gundam series. It had various military-based armaments such as a tank-cannon, a steel knife, grenades, a helicopter blade, and a rapid-fire, six barrel gatling gun. It was defeated rather shamefully by GaoGaiGar, who put its various armaments to shame before dealing the final blow and ripping out its core.

Zonder Valner[edit]

A Zonder formed from the dolphin Valner at G-City Park in the video game The King of Braves GaoGaiGar: Blockaded Numbers. Was originally designated EI-15. Erased from records due to the circumstances at the end of the incident by Geki Hyuuma under orders from Kohtaroh Taiga.

EI-15[edit]

"GGG Mecha Parts Robo." Created by Pinchernone's infusion of Zonder Metal into Minoru Inobuzaki, a man who was overlooked for the GGG project in favor of Kosuke Entouji. EI-15 infiltrated the Bay Tower Base and took over the operating system, replacing it with a Zonder-based one, as well as deleting the GaoMachine start-up programs. Attempted to trap Volfogg within the Multidimensional Intelligence Submarine, but was quickly repelled by the intruder destruction program installed into it by Entouji. Weakened, EI-15 escaped to the armory and fused to the GGG mecha parts, taking on an appearance that was very similar to GaoGaiGar, inheriting the ability to use both Broken Magnum as well as Hell and Heaven (and presumably Protect Shade, as its left arm had a similar design, though Protect Shade was never used). EI-15 could also stretch its arms long distances and had a large drill on its chest. It is the first Zonder to successfully block Hell and Heaven, by using the technique against it, but GaoGaiGar was ultimately able to break through the attack and retrieve the core. The core was promptly Purified, and Inobuzaki went on to become an operator in the GGG Orbit Base.

EI-16[edit]

"Long-range Cannon Robo." Created through Polonaise's infusion of Zonder Metal into a man cramming for the examinations to enter Tokyo University, fused with the lost German Schwerer Gustav rail cannon Dora. (This is a fictional situation, as Dora was found in post-war Germany.) Fired 80 cm shells at supersonic speed, and controlled parts of the track it sat on as well that could be used like tentacles. Targeted several of Japan's major universities, but was stopped from destroying Tokyo University by ChoRyuJin. Fired at GaoGaiGar, but was blocked by the Dividing Driver at the cost of GaoGaiGar's left arm. EI-16 was destroyed by a Broken Magnum and the backfire of its own shell, the core was protected by Big Volfogg's Mirror Coating.

EI-17[edit]

"Tire Robo." Created through Primarda's infusion of Zonder Metal into an incredibly obese man, fused with a junk yard filled with thousands of tires it could control mentally. Attacks would simply bounce off of its rubber surface, but despite this, it was easily defeated by usage of Hell and Heaven. However, the remnants of its body, when it exploded, created a super-folded space trap within the Dividing Field, which was eventually dissipated by the usage of the Dimension Pliers, foiling the trap to destroy GaoGaiGar within the Dividing Field. Prior to the springing of the trap, the Zonder core was purified, removing the man's stress as well as the source of it: his excess weight. The man was removed from the Dividing Field before the super-folded space trapped GaoGaiGar.

EI-18[edit]

"Micro-machine Amalgam." Created by Pizza's infusion of Zonder Metal into a man working in the Space Development Corporation, who also had a hobby for harmless magic tricks. EI-18's core was not a part of the main body of the Zonder Robo, which consisted of millions of nanomachines. The Zonder used these nanomachines to control of most of the Corporation's employees, including Mikoto Utsugi and Mamoru's surrogate father, Isamu Amami. The controlled employees wreaked havoc on the center, but it was discovered that those who carried the special GGG pager were protected due to the frequency it emits disabled the nanomachines. Volfogg was able to broadcast this frequency from the Space Development Corporation to free the employees from EI-18's control. Pizza urged EI-18 to become a Zonder Robo in response, which soon engaged GaoGaiGar in combat. The main body held a false core: GaoGaiGar's usage of Hell and Heaven on this false core caused a chain reaction that created the Grand Nova from EI-18, which both trapped and damaged GaoGaiGar while simultaneously creating a Zonder Metal Plant. Grand Nova was repeatedly thwarted ChoRyuJin's attempts to dissipate it through the use of the Eraser Head, but was able to lower it enough for Guy, powered up with Hyper Mode, to escape with GaoGaiGar from the Grand Nova.

Big Volfogg and Mamoru infiltrated the sewers, where Big Volfogg engaged both Pizza and Pinchernone in combat to distract both of them while Mamoru snuck around to Purify the core. The Grand Nova, Zonder Metal Plant, and EI-18 were soon destroyed by the first use of the Goldion Hammer, just as Pizza, who saw through the distraction, attempted and failed to kill Mamoru. The core was Purified shortly after.

EI-19[edit]

"Science Lab Robo." Created through Pinchernone's infusion of Zonder Metal unto the strict Vice Principal at Mamoru's school. With literal control over everything in the school, it had enforced the students on a tight "schedule", able to bar off any signals of distress from Mamoru or his friends (It was able to project holograms of the kids playing safely that was able to distract Volfogg for a while.) Volfogg soon saw the deception and took action. It was an uphill battle until GaoGaiGar used the Goldion Hammer; Mamoru and his friends, held hostage before the Zonder Core, were rescued right before by the Mobile Team. EI-19s other capabilities included levitation, acidic gas, missiles, electric tentacles, and energy beams.

EI-20[edit]

"Gravity Manipulator Robo." Polonaise and Primarda's infusion of Zonder Metal onto Professor Akiko Hirata, who had faced unforeseen technical difficulties when demonstrating the world's first gravity manipulation chamber at the Science Center. Absorbing the chamber, it was able to inflict all of G-Island with enough force that the Island would eventually sink, slowly leveling the area and leaving everyone helpless to even move. Goldymarg - however - was able to withstand the gravity enough to move. Breaking from his station, he confronted EI-20. It was able to pummel Goldymarg through manipulation of gravity and anti-gravity, until the support unit fired a tank beam into the sky. Using an arched trajectory through effect of the increased gravity, he was able to hit the space center's observatory, sending a chunk into the Zonder, disabling the gravity manipulator to buy enough time for the rest of the GGG to be able to act. This is the first formal use of the Goldion Hammer through Goldymarg and GaoGaiGar's Hammer Hell and Heaven technique.

Akiko Hirata would become one of the three chief scientists of the GGG Orbital Base, alongside Inobuzaki and Nozaki.

EI-21[edit]

"B-52 Bomber Robo." Pizza's infusion of Zonder Metal onto a man who desired to fly at the Air Show, fusing with a B-52 Stratofortress that Hana and her cousin Ayame happened to be in. After raiding the Defense Force base, it headed for G-Island dropping its payload in bombs along its path. After Hana and Ayame were freed, Goldymarg had taken it down and both were sent falling toward the city, until GaoGaiGar used the Dividing Driver. Goldymarg was seemingly disabled from the crash, thus disabling the Goldion Hammer. The Zonder then destroyed GaoGaiGar's right arm with seeker missiles after he tried Broken Magnum, thus disabling Hell and Heaven. However, Goldymarg endured without damage and shot EI-21 back down. It was then destroyed by GaoGaiGar's Hammer Hell and Heaven.

EI-22[edit]

"Weather Star Robo." Created by Pinchernone. The infected human was a weathergirl constantly criticized for inaccurate reports. As a typhoon swept over G-Island City, the Zonder was deduced as residing within a series of five tornadic waterspouts off the coast. The storm pinned down most of the support team elsewhere as it trapped GaoGaiGar between the waterspouts, until Goldymarg helped free him, with the Dividing Driver in tow. With the Dividing Field activated, the Zonder's true form was revealed as a large star-shaped robot that could manipulate weather, mainly for spawning storms. Nonetheless, it was quickly bested by Broken Magnum and then Hammer Hell and Heaven.

EI-23[edit]

"Sound Robo Alpha." Primarda's infusion of Zonder Metal unto a loud ice-cream vendor who wasn't getting customers. Part of a pincer strike on the GGG. The result was one of two building like Zonders that emitted hypersonic waves that crippled all of the Mobile Units, by overloading their capacity of GS-Liquid, as well as the GGG tower. It was bested by Mic Sounders the 13th's Dazzling Double V (Disc M) attack before fusing with EI-24.

EI-24[edit]

"Sound Robo Beta." Polonaise's infusion of Zonder Metal unto a subway employee with a rough daily life. Part of a pincer strike on the GGG. The result was one of two building like Zonders that emitted hypersonic waves that crippled all of the Mobile Units, by overloading their capacity of GS-Liquid, as well as the GGG tower. It was bested by Mic Sounders the 13th's Dazzling Double V (Disc M) attack before fusing with EI-23. Unlike EI-23, EI-24 could also launch missiles from its body.

EI-23/EI-24 Combination[edit]

A combination of EIs 23 and 24 that bears resemblance to a Zonder Metal Plant. Its hypersonic waves were stifled by Mic Sounders while the revived Mobile Team launched a collective strike, accumulating into GaoGaiGar's Hammer Hell and Heaven, to which it retrieved both Zonder cores. This combination is sometimes referred to as the Hypersonic Zondar.

EI-25[edit]

"SeaDart Robo." Result of Pinchernone and Pizza's infusion of the last of Pasder's Zonder Metal into a young boy named Tohru, whose father had died in a storm at sea. Fused with his toy "SeaDart" hovercraft to create a Zonder Robo that fires missiles which shift all matter within the blast area to another dimensional space, as well as being able to traverse dimensions itself. This Zonder reverted to human form naturally without Purification being necessary, as a child host is apparently unable to sustain sufficient energy to power Zonder Metal.

EI-30 through EI-71[edit]

Zonder Robos created by Spine Primeval (ZX-05) from visitors to the Primeval-fused section of the Great Wall of China. All of them had basic EI abilities and were armed with an energy cannon on one of their arms. Initially emerged as independent entities to protect the Primeval from GaoGaiGar's Goldion Hammer, all 42 Zonders later combined into a laser defense system. This system was destroyed with GekiRyuJin's Xiang Tou Long, safely retrieving all Zonder Cores. It is later learned in the novel "The King of Braves GaoGaiGar: Queen of Leo" that a BioNet agent—one that Chasseur agent Renais Kerdif-Shishioh—was pursuing was among those Zonderized.

EI-72[edit]

Appears in the PlayStation videogame The King of Braves GaoGaiGar: Blockaded Numbers. Its core is Kohtaroh Taiga.

EI-73[edit]

Appears in the PlayStation videogame The King of Braves GaoGaiGar: Blockaded Numbers. Its core is Geki Hyuuma. Combines with EI-72.

EI-72/EI-73 Combination[edit]

Appears in the PlayStation videogame The King of Braves GaoGaiGar: Blockaded Numbers. Absorbs the counter gravity shockwave generating Goldion Motor tool developed at NASA; is thus able to generate a field with which to counter the Goldion Hammer's attack. Also held two decoy Zonder Cores in addition to its own (which GaoGaiGar was lured into retrieving during use of Hammer Hell and Heaven.)

The method in which it is destroyed varies, depending on path taken in the game:

  • By GaoGaiGar, using a special dual-core retrieval version of Hell and Heaven (whose motion is guided by the dolphin Valner from the previous scenario);
  • By King J-Der, wielding a Jewel Generator-enhanced Goldymarg as the "Silverion Hammer", whose combined energies are able to break through the counter shockwave;
  • By GaoGaiGar, using the NASA-developed Grand Pressure tool;
  • By King J-Der, using the J-Quath twice in succession, only interrupted by a brief kick to EI-72/EI-73 before the second use of the J-Quath.

EI-74[edit]

Zonder Robo created through Arm Primeval's (ZX-07) infusion of Zonder Metal into the producer of an animated television series. Fused with the Japanese BNB television station to broadcast his anime (GaGaGatchi) on all wavelengths around the world. This Zonder was created for the purpose of causing sensor interference in order to cover the escape of the surviving Primevals (ZX-07 and ZX-16 through ZX-31) to Jupiter. It lacked significant offensive and defensive capabilities as it was only armed with a pair of machine guns on its body. Despite these shortcomings, its sensor disruption ability was so great that not even Mamoru was able to detect its appearance. It also kept the GGG mechanoids at bay by keeping hostages, including Hana Hatsuno. Most of the hostages were freed by the GGG mecha, except for Hana. GaiGar spotted Hana, further preventing him from defeating the Zonder Robo until Mamoru came to assist. Hana was freed shortly after by Mamoru as GaiGar initiated Final Fusion. EI-74 was destroyed by the use of Hammer Hell and Heaven, and Mamoru Purified the core in front of Hana to demonstrate his abilities and to converse with her about how he is an alien.

Zonderians[edit]

Pasder (EI-01)[edit]

Pasder (パスダー Pasudā?) was the "Terminal" program of Heart Primeval (ZX-31), sent to invade Earth in 2003 as what the GGG identified as "EI-01". Struck down from a preemptive orbital attack by Galeon, he crashed on the city of Yokohama, Japan. The initial impact on Mikoto Utsugi's residence would cause a fire within which her parents were killed, the Utsugi residence was destroyed, and Utsugi herself fell unconscious—during which time Pasder introduced a dormant, experimental Zonder organism into her biology.

Pasder would then travel underground to the East—absorbing many types of machinery in the process—and evade detection to situate itself beneath Tokyo Tower. There he would create a small Zonder Metal Plant within his body, commanding the Four Machine Kings to implant this metal into human subjects exhibiting stressful emotion—the most ideal condition in which the metal could mature and fulfill the Zonderian goal of total Earth mechanization. Pasdar appears on flat surfaces of the EI-01 vessel beneath Tokyo Tower as a gruesome-seeming, ever-contorting face made of wires and circuitry, with lights for eyes.

Upon defeat of the Four Machine Kings by GGG in 2005, Pasdar fully re-emerged from beneath Tokyo. This form bore a strong resemblance to Satan, as commented by GGG during the battle. As EI-01, Pasdar could fire reflecting beams of energy that were later used to create TenRyuJin's "Hikari to Yami no Mai", using all of the computers in Tokyo to calculate the angles, and had a Barrier System whose strength was only matched by the New Machine Species Zonuda. He drew in all of the city's electrical power in an attempt to return to space, but was destroyed by GaoGaiGar and the Strongest Brave Robot Corps under the influence of Projectile-X. Only a fragment carrying his program survived to reach orbit, absorbed by Pagliaccio to provide the 31 Primevals with intelligence on GGG's combat capacity. Pasder would ultimately return as part of the Z-Master itself when Pagliaccio was "retrieved" by Heart Primeval.

Polonaise[edit]

Polonaise (ポロネズ Poronezu?) is one of the Four Machine Kings, assuming the form of a man dressed in old-fashioned clothing with a caterpillar-like engine of a locomotive for a head. In human form he resembled a train conductor. He was always smoking a pipe, which made the sound of a train whistle when blown. His Zonders tended to be train or subway-themed. He, along with Primada, helped power the growing Zonder metal plant during the Great Tokyo Upheaval by combining with Capital Circle Railway to make himself Zonderian Robo EI-28. Sped clockwise around the rail route to generate the energy used to create the Contra Fall and the Tokyo Zonder Metal Plant, in cooperation with EI-29. Their run was initially disrupted by GaoGaiGar's use of the Goldion Hammer, which severely damaged both of them. However, EI-26 intervened, allowing the two Zonderian Robos to regenerate and continue their run. EI-28 was ultimately destroyed by ChoRyuJin, who used EI-29 to slam the two Zonderian Robos together to destroy them both, severely injuring both Zonderians and preventing them from returning to their perfect forms as Polonaise flees to Tokyo Tower after Primada's death. However, he was found and Purified by Mamoru, killed as a result. After Purification he resembled his human form but in Grecian clothing like that of the people of the Green Planet, but quickly dissolved into the air. His dialogue after Primada's death suggests they were married before becoming Zondarians.

Primada[edit]

Primada (プリマーダ Purimāda?) Is the only female member of the Four Machine Kings, wearing as attire resembling traffic vehicle parts, with tires acting as skirt and shoulder decorations, annetna on her head, and headlights. Her human form resembles a ballerina, and she is often seen dancing around Pasder's cave and her human victims. Her Zonders usually had something to do with motorized vehicles. During the Great Tokyo Upheaval she helped power the growing Zonder metal plant with Polonaise by fusing with Capital Circle Expressway to turn herself into Zonderian Robo EI-29. Sped counterclockwise around the length of the road to generate the energy used to create the Contra Fall and the Tokyo Zonder Metal Plant, in cooperation with Polonaise. Their run was initially disrupted by GaoGaiGar's use of the Goldion Hammer, which severely damaged both of them. However, EI-26 intervened, allowing the two Zonderian Robos to regenerate and continue their run. EI-29 was ultimately destroyed by ChoRyuJin, who used his Power Crane and Ladder to slam her into EI-28 to destroy them both, severely injuring both Zonderians and preventing them from returning to their perfect forms as Primarda attempts to finish off the damaged ChoRyuJin, only to come into contact with the robot's open GS Ride and be destroyed by the sudden contact with G-Stone energies. Her last words to Polonaise suggest that they were married before becoming Zonderized.

Pizza[edit]

Pizza (ピッツァ Pittsa?) was originally Red Planet cyborg Soldato J (#002). After his stalemate with Arm Primeval, Soldato was forced to retreat into the newly created wastelands of his planet where he was found by the Zonderian Pinchernone, and converted into a Zonderian himself. Most of his memories as a Soldato Battalion cyborg were sealed in the process. As one of the Four Machine Kings, Pizza acts out plans that were aerial or airborne in nature, as well as personally involved in the missions, fighting Cyborg Guy.

Prior to the final battle between the Four Machine Kings and GGG in Tokyo, Pizza fused with a supersonic transport called the "HST" as it landed at Haneda Airport, becoming the Zonderian Robo EI-26 to deter GGG and GaoGaiGar long enough for the Tokyo Zonder Metal Plant to complete. In this form, EI-26 had unmatched speed, which it used to great effect. Despite this advantage, however, GaoGaiGar was able to grapple it by surprise using thermals, allowing GaoGaiGar to attack with Broken Magnum at point blank range. This damage gave GaoGaiGar time to destroy the Zonderian Robo using the Goldion Hammer with Pizza narrowly escaping yet severely weakened. His final fight with Cyborg Guy prior to the re-emergence of EI-01 caused him to fully remember certain details of his past and purpose; this drove him to rebel against Pasder, saving Guy, Mamoru and Galeon while getting him critically wounded and in a near-death state.

When the Arma assigned to him (who had since been found on Earth and adopted, having been given the name Ikumi Kaidou) had his memory restored prior to the re-emergence of EI-01, he sought out and performed Purification on Pizza, restoring Soldato J's own memory and true form.

Pizza/Soldato J's character design is an obvious homage to Cyborg 002 from Shotaro Ishinomori's Cyborg 009 series.

Pinchernone[edit]

Pinchernone (ペンチノン Penchinon?) is Zonder-infected form of Tomoro 0117, the main computer of the J-Ark assigned to Soldato J #002. During the battle for the Red Planet, he was infected with Zonder Metal and turned into a Zonderian (though the J-Ark he had controlled remained somehow intact). Pinchernone would later hunt down Soldato J to ensure his own Zonderian conversion. Following the Red Planet's mechanization, he served the Zonderian Pasder as one of the Four Machine Kings, acting in plans that are seaborne or maritime-themed, though several were also themed in childish and immature ways.

He took the form of a small boat-shaped creature with a single yellow eye (this "eye" actually being Tomoro 0117's original form). His "disguised" "human" form was that of a short, purple-faced sailor with one yellow eye, who was always grinning and sitting on something. (He resembles Fukuzou Moguro of Warau Salesman to an extent.) He maintained Tomoro's original crisp, high-pitched monotone as a voice, but his transformation to Zonderian form gained him a screeching, chattering laugh.

Pinchernone was possessed of a childish personality, and harbored a vicious grudge against Volfogg following repeated defeats at his hand. During the final battle between the Four Machine Kings and GGG in Tokyo, Pinchernone drew Volfogg into the city's sewer system in an effort to attack him directly when he fused with a frigate to become Zonderian Robo EI-27. Despite the power of Big Volfogg, EI-27 was able to destroy the two GunMachines and severely injure Volfogg by ripping off his arm. Volfogg however retaliates by remote controlling the Multidimensional Intelligence Submarine, with Entouji's help. The vehicle crashed into EI-27, prompting Pinchernone to absorb it, stating he could absorb any mechanoid that does not carry a G-Stone. However, this was a trap, and Entouji caused the Multidimensional Intelligence Submarine's fusion core to go critical. Volfogg pinned the escaping Pinchernone using a boomerang before the vehicle ultimately self-destructed.

Both Volfogg and Pinchernone were seemingly destroyed in the explosion; however it was revealed both survived the blast. However, Pinchernone's damage was so great that he did not have enough energy left over to regenerate when he was found by Arma, who purified Tomoro 0117 and restored his original program.

Pagliaccio[edit]

Pagliaccio (パリアッチョ Pariaccho?) is a "Terminal" program of the Heart Primeval, deployed to act as the Primevals' intelligence-gathering program and "field commander." She assumes the form of hovering, doll-like pierrot, standing cruciform atop a balancing ball which can open and hold her collapsed humanoid form for high-speed travel. Speaks in a cold, droning monotone with barely noticeable traces of emotion. She appears after Pasder is destroyed, absorbing the remaining fragment him into herself when she arrives in Earth orbit, making her the recipient of his dormant program and all of his knowledge.

She is "retrieved" by the core of Heart Primeval upon GGG's arrival at Jupiter, in preparation for Z-Master Fusion as she ultimately becomes part of the Z-Master itself. She is never directly identified (or even noticed) by any entity other than the Primevals themselves (who pay little attention to her outside of her orders).

"Black" Soldato J (#019)[edit]

One of the J warriors who, like J-002 fell to wandering in the desert after the Red Planet's defeat, having lost his Arma somewhere along the way. Deciding to take power instead of dying, he smashed his own J-Jewel and replaced it with Zonder metal, becoming a Zondarian. In this form he mechanized many planets and killed anyone who recognized him until he found his missing Arma. He tried to kill her, but with the last of her strength she restored his memories of being a warrior against mechanization, but failed to purify him. J-019 went partially mad with grief, having killed his Arma and having memories of being a soldier but having no way to oppose the Primevals with his Zonderized body. He somehow obtained a doll-like version of his deceased Arma, a thing that would look and act somewhat like her but was unable to use any telekinetic or purifying powers. With her he managed to travel to Earth to confront GGG and J-002.

At earth he challenged J002, manipulated by the Primevals into attacking. The pair fought and J-002 was wounded, but was rescued by Arma, much to the surprise of J-019, who didn't believe there was still a living Arma left in the world. After that fight ended in a draw, J-019 attacked the GGG Orbital Base, only to be stopped by J-002 for a continuation of their battle while Arm Primeval fought GGG. J-002 won the fight, but when Arma came to purify the Zonderized 019 pieces of the wreckage flew in to kill him. The Primevals plan had been to use J-019 to distract Arma with the Purification, allowing them to kill him. However, J-019 threw himself in the path of the wreckage, sacrificing himself in the process. After having made his peace with himself and J002 before dying, his J-Ark drifted off to wander in the stars, presumably forever.

Z-Master[edit]

The Zonder Master Program, it appears as a giant with a (relatively) small discus embedded in the Z-Master's right palm featured a depiction of Pasder's face on the left half and Pagliaccio's on the right - the Z-Master appears to have spoken through this in an amalgamation of Pasder's and Pagliaccio's voices.

Originally created by the denizens of the Purple Planet to relieve stress, Z-Master instead became the progenitor of the Zonderians. To carried out its goal across the cosmos after finishing Zonderizing the planet, the Z-Master splintered itself into the 31 Machine Primevals (機界31原種 Kikai Sanjūichi Genshū?), each with a fragment of power that exceeding those of all converted Zonderians, able to develop Zonder Metal or Zondar Spores at will, and aside from basic zondar abilities can also perform "Primeval Fusion" with one another to increase their powers even further. The Primevals later arrive to Earth following the destruction of Pasdar, with most of those who invaded the Earth purified into a "Zonder Crystal": a dormant component of the Master Program, appearing as an interlocking piece of a sphere-shaped object.

The J Team gather the Zonder Crystals in hopes to that once all 31 are united, the Master Program can be destroyed while inactive. However, once only he and Heart remained, Arm's interference brought about the rebirth of Z-Master, employing "THE POWER" from Jupiter to boost its abilities even further. The Braves manage to get into Z-Master, to overload "THE POWER" within Heart Primeval to destroy Z-Master from the inside-out.

All Primevals are identified by GGG using the code "ZX" (Pronounced "Zex" and standing for "Zonder Exceptional"). Each Primeval is formally named for one body part as below, though most Primevals were not formally named in the television series; a complete list of names would appear later in official sources.

Fist Primeval (ZX-01)[edit]

First of a trio of Primevals to arrive on Earth, sent in advance of the main Primeval group to neutralize GGG. Took the shape of a large, red, circle with five claw-tipped fingers coming out of the sides and could emit red electricity from its body. Destroyed with King J-Der's J-Quath.

Hair Primeval (ZX-02)[edit]

Second of a trio of Primevals sent in advance of the main Primeval group. Took the form of a mane of blue hair extending from a red cloak. Demonstrated the ability to reshape its hair into a drill, and shoot bits of hair like needles. Destroyed with the J-Quath. Hair Primeval, as part of the complete Z-Master, was extended into Jupiter in order to draw in vast amounts of "THE POWER".

Jaws Primeval (ZX-03)[edit]

Third of the trio of Primevals to initially arrive on Earth. Very much resembled a golden set of dentures with sharp, gator-like teeth. It also had a tongue (on which the Zonder-crystal was located). It could bite through anything and was able to fire its teeth at targets like missiles. Damaged by the J-Quath, though a small section managed to escape. This portion was later sent to damage the Mic Force in an attempt to buy time for the other Primevals to arrive on Earth through an ES Window. The remainder of Jaws Primeval was pursued by the J-Ark and destroyed using J-Der's Plasma Sword.

Legs Primeval (ZX-04)[edit]

Fused with the American mining and research platform Explorer Seven, located in the Arctic Ocean. Attempted to reach the North Pole in order to force a catastrophic inversion of the Earth's magnetic field using massive electromagnetic manipulation. Defended itself using electromagnetism to generate Absolute Zero temperatures, creating massive mountains of ice. Its progress was halted by the revived Strongest Brave Robot Corps and was destroyed with GaoGaiGar's Goldion Hammer.

Spine Primeval (ZX-05)[edit]

Fused with a large section of the Great Wall of China, transforming all 41 humans on the section into Zonders. Acting like a pump, it burrowed one end of itself 50 km into the earth, extending the other end out into space where it pumped magma in an attempt to attack the Orbital GGG Base. Its upper section was disintegrated with GaoGaiGar's Goldion Hammer; its core then shifted to the section still within the Earth's Mantle. This section was destroyed with a point-blank Maser Cannon shot fired by King J-Der.

Brain Primeval (ZX-06)[edit]

Fused with a Kazakhstan satellite rocket bound for orbit; once there, opened an ES Window onto the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter in an attempt to manipulate large asteroids through the ES window onto Earth with powerful telekinesis. Was also able to telepathically project strong psychic illusions into the mind of a subject and fire psychic energy from its body. Its psychic abilities were blocked by Mamoru Amami long enough for Star GaoGaiGar to use the Gatling Driver to bind its movement and destroy the Primeval with Hammer Hell and Heaven.

Arm Primeval (ZX-07)[edit]

One of the most known figures among the Primeval invaders, he plays the part of a "noble" warrior. Known in most forms for his gigantic right arm, capable of generating powerful gravity shockwaves from its biceps.

He was first seen in armored humanoid form on the Red Planet to assist in its mechanization, where he was fought to a standstill by Soldato J (#002). This duel left an unresolved grudge between the two of them. Arm would later face Soldato J again, in a different time and place; the GGG Orbit Base, during his assault on it as leader of the Magnificent 7 Primevals. (To assist him with this task, he also fused with the US battleship BB-62 New Jersey as needs warranted.) As a last stand in that encounter, he would escape to Earth's Moon and perform Primeval Fusion with five of the remaining six Primevals in his group; this gambit would fail, although he managed to secure his own escape from Purification afterward.

He soon reappeared in Egypt, having fused with an Egyptian pyramid (capable of scattering energy-absorbing micromachines) to form a Zonder Metal Plant, bringing Stomach Primeval (ZX-14) to assist him and performing Primeval Fusion with him when defeat seemed inevitable. This did not prevent a second defeat (through GouRyuJin's Burning Hurricane and GaoGaiGar's Goldion Hammer), though he managed to escape Purification a second time.

Arm's last stand would be in Jupiter's orbit with the remaining active Primevals, having fused with Jupiter's moon Europa. After being defeated yet again (by King J-Der's Ten-Linked Maser Cannons and J-Quath), he escaped yet again to fuse with Heart Primeval taking his place as part of the complete Z-Master and would ultimately be destroyed along with it. Strangely enough, Arm Primeval no longer demonstrated his gravity shockwave ability while fused to the Z-Master, though he is seen (in human form) emerging from the Z-Master with hundreds of Zonder Spores, which were thus launched through an ES Window to Earth.

Nail Primeval (ZX-08)[edit]

Took human form as one of the Magnificent 7 Primevals. Used his gigantic nails to slash through most types of material. Occasionally fused with the British attack submarine S107 Trafalgar. Destroyed by GaoGaiGar, the Mic Force, and King J-Der while in Primeval Fusion on the Moon.

Ear Primeval (ZX-09)[edit]

Took human form as one of the Magnificent 7 Primevals. He demonstrated the ability to control minds through special pins he could fire from his ears. He used this ability when attacking the Main Order Room to take control of the GGG Staff, but was thwarted by a sudden appearance of Mamoru and Galeon. Occasionally fused with the US aircraft carrier CV-62 Independence, he was destroyed by GaoGaiGar, the Mic Force, and King J-Der while in Primeval Fusion on the Moon.

Eye Primeval (ZX-10)[edit]

Took human form as one of the Magnificent 7 Primevals. Had an ability to predict enemy movement with an incredible degree of speed and accuracy; never actively participated in combat. Usually worked in conjunction with Arm Primeval. Occasionally fused with the Japan Self Defense Forces' Kongo class destroyer DDG-174 Kirishima. Destroyed by GaoGaiGar, the Mic Force, and King J-Der while in Primeval Fusion on the Moon.

Intestine Primeval (ZX-11)[edit]

Demonstrated the ability to create a portable black hole at the end of its extended intestinal tube. Took human form as one of the Magnificent 7 Primevals, using Kaidou's foster mother as a host body (in addition to the US amphibious assault ship LHA-3 Belleau Wood). Her choice of host body caused Kaidou to hesitate in attacking her in their first encounter, where she held Mamoru Amami's unconscious friends hostage in an attempt to draw him out. As a last stand in that encounter, she would escape to the Moon and perform Primeval Fusion with five of the remaining six Primevals in her group; this gambit would fail, although she managed to secure her own escape from Purification afterward.

She would next appear in Mexico (still possessing the body of Kaidou's foster mother) in an attempt to form a Zonder Metal Plant. She was assisted by Nose Primeval (ZX-15) in this task, performing Primeval Fusion with him to increase her own strength against HyoRyu and RaiRyu. This would fail when GenRyuJin extracted Nose Primeval's core, invalidating her Fusion; King J-Der would appear soon after and destroy her with a Kaidou-directed J-Quath.

Rib Primeval (ZX-12)[edit]

Took human form as one of the Magnificent 7 Primevals. Had the power of Atomic Disassembly, capable of controlled disintegration and displacement of any mass or energy. Occasionally fused with the Russian nuclear-powered icebreaker Arktika. Destroyed by GaoGaiGar, the Mic Force, and King J-Der while in Primeval Fusion on the Moon.

Primeval Fusion[edit]

Fusion of six of the Magnificent 7 Primevals (ZX-07 through ZX-12). Possessed all six of their abilities. Determined to be far greater in power than even that of EI-01. Primeval Fusion 1 was destroyed with a combined Mic Force assault focused through GaoGaiGar's Gatling Driver Gravity Lens, followed by King J-Der's use of a simultaneous barrage of Anti-Meson and Maser Cannon.

Liver Primeval (ZX-13)[edit]

Took human form as one of the Magnificent 7 Primevals. Had the power of "Reversal," capable of regeneration and reversion from Rib Primeval's Atomic Disassembly ability. Occasionally fused with a military supply ship removed from a position off the coast of the Philippines. Destroyed in orbit by J-Der's Double Plasma Sword.

Stomach Primeval (ZX-14)[edit]

Fused with the Giza Sphinx to assist Arm Primeval (ZX-07) while he was in the process of generating a Zonder Metal Plant. Its only noteworthy ability was that it could spew exceedingly corrosive stomach acid. Arm later performed Primeval Fusion with it to defend himself against EnRyu and FuRyu. Its core would be extracted in this form with GouRyuJin's Burning Hurricane.

Nose Primeval (ZX-15)[edit]

Fused with a Moai to assist Intestine Primeval (ZX-11) in Mexico while she was in the process of generating a Zonder Metal Plant. Intestine later performed Primeval Fusion with it to defend herself against HyoRyu and RaiRyu. Its core would be extracted in this form with GenRyuJin's Thunder Blizzard.

Wings Primeval (ZX-16)[edit]

We only see Wings Primeval fused with one of Jupiter's moons, resembling a closed pinecone. It demonstrated a similar ability to the Hair Primeval in that it fired needle-like projections to attack enemies. It was destroyed with GaoGaiGar's "Goldion Hammer", but later became part of (and died with) the Z-Master.

Lungs Primeval (ZX-17)[edit]

Fused with Jupiter's satellite Ganymede. Created a "Klein Space" within itself (a parallel dimension whose internal structure is shaped similar to that of a klein bottle), used to seal away J-Der and GGG upon their arrival at Jupiter. Destroyed with King J-Der's J-Quath.

Elbow Primeval (ZX-18)[edit]

Knee Primeval (ZX-19)[edit]

Destroyed with Broken Phantom.

Foot Primeval (ZX-20)[edit]

Destroyed with the Goldion Hammer.

Neck Primeval (ZX-21)[edit]

Breast Primeval (ZX-22)[edit]

Torso Primeval (ZX-23)[edit]

Hip Primeval (ZX-24)[edit]

Genital Primeval (ZX-25)[edit]

Destroyed by GenRyuJin and GouRyuJin.

Kidneys Primeval (ZX-26)[edit]

Shoulders Primeval (ZX-27)[edit]

Bladder Primeval (ZX-28)[edit]

Nerves Primeval (ZX-29)[edit]

Muscles Primeval (ZX-30)[edit]

Heart Primeval (ZX-31)[edit]

The all-powerful leader of the 31 Primevals, the Z-Master's core. Created Pasder and Paglaccio to act as independent "Terminal Programs" - it appears that these two are actually the two halves of Heart itself. Spoke in an almost psychotically calm adult male's voice. Possessed the ability to attack using waves of psychokinetic force (which could be blocked by The Power-enhanced Solitary Waves). Also used "blood vessels" which fired blasts of energy from their tips as an attack means - these were its weak point, as it was possible to enter one and thus attack Heart from within.

Destroyed by an explosive release of "THE POWER" within the Primeval by King J-Der.

New Machine Species[edit]

Zonuda[edit]

When EI-01 first crashed on Earth, it planted the seed of a New Machine Species within the nervous system of Mikoto Utsugi. Three years or so later—one month after the defeat of the 31 Primevals—this seed matured, transforming Mikoto into a new species of Zonder machine (Kikai Shinshishu). In this form, she absorbed all energy from and the GGG Orbit Base and escaped to Earth using one separated half of Division IV: Amaterasu. Upon landing, the New Machine Species converted it into a golden "Zonuda Robot" form that instantly mechanized any matter within a large radius through "Matter Sublimation." It was defeated by Guy Shishioh and GaoGaiGar (having landed on Earth using the other half of Amaterasu, with the assistance of GGG and the Strongest Brave Robot Corps). Through a combination of Mamoru's and Guy's power, Mikoto was purified and she and Guy became Evoluders.

Zonuda was able to revert to its standard form from Zonder Core form in a matter of seconds, and absorbed all energy and matter in range. Only G-Stones were not mechanized by its Matter Sublimation, and it displayed the ability to absorb even GS-Ride energy. In Zonuda Robo form, the radius of Matter Sublimation increased dramatically, and it possessed a nearly impenetrable Barrier System, invulnerable to the Goldion Hammer (which was mechanized upon GaoGaiGar's attempt to use it). This was only beatable once Mikoto managed to weaken the barrier from within Zonuda (shown as a scream on the show). Zonuda was also able to counter Hell and Heaven using its palms, and could fire massive blasts of energy from the spike on its head. Even GaoGaiGar was not immune to the effects of Matter Sublimation, resulting in the destruction of the entire Space Booster over the course of the fight and the mechanization of GaoGaiGar and Guy himself in the aftermath.

BioNet[edit]

Professor Laplace[edit]

Professor Moebius[edit]

Professor Mozuma[edit]

Shou[edit]

Gimlet[edit]

A general in the army of chaos, he has a metal cyborg body and is one of Bionet's most obedient members. Gimlet is a very skeletal cyborg, and consists entirely of metallic parts. To hide his appearance, he sometimes wears a long cloak and a mask similar to that of a jester. Uses the phrase "that won't do" incessantly. Clashed with Guy in Hong Kong prior to FINAL, and steals one of the Q-Parts during Episode 1 of FINAL. This leads to combat with GaoFighGar, where Gimlet fuses with the Q-Parts and dozens of identical reconfiguring machines to form the Gimlet Empereur. This shapeshifting mechanoid is supposedly capable of using twenty-three special abilities, but only three are shown.

  • Explosion Rayon: Special ability number 1. A laser fired from the Empereur's right arm after shifting into a cannon. Easily blocked and returned by Protect Wall.
  • Colossal Combustible: Special ability number 2. Gimlet Empereur forms a spire on each shoulder with electricity crackling between them - what this does is unknown, as Guy interrupts the attack (and, albeit temporarily, obliterates Gimlet Empereur) with Broken Phantom.
  • Substance Excusez-Moi: Special ability number 19. Gimlet Empereur shifts into a tank and fires two large missiles. These are each destroyed by a swift swing of the Goldion Hammer.

Gimlet is summarily defeated by GaoFighGar and the Goldion Hammer, and soon thereafter killed, quite coldly, by Renais.

Reprogrammed Repli-jin[edit]

Repli-Mamoru[edit]

A clone created by the real Mamoru using the regeneration machine of the 11 Planetary Masters of Sol, he fought the Masters while the real Mamoru stole the PasQ Machine and escaped with it back to the Earth solar system. The clone was captured and reprogrammed by Palpalapa, then sent to retrieve the pieces of the PasQ Machine, which broke and fell to Earth during Pia Decem's attack on Mamoru and Kaidou (Arma).

During his mission, Repli-Mamoru used the friendship of the GGG members and Braves to his advantage at every turn, confusing Kaidou in their fight upon returning to Earth, tricking Mic Sounders into helping him steal the Q-Part possessed by GGG American Space Center, as well as manipulating the GGG crew to gain access to the Orbit Base to steal the last two Q-Parts. This continued during his escape attempt in Repli-GaiGar, making the GGG Braves drop their guard so he could escape capture. He was undone by Renais, who had no friendship with him, forcing him to Earth where Repli-Mamoru formed GaoGaiGar to battle Guy in GaoFighGar. Repli-Mamoru used Hell and Heaven to destroy the Goldion Hammer and badly damaged ChoRyuJin before being beaten by Guy's Hell and Heaven. Even after losing, Repli-Mamoru's friendship manipulating nearly let him kill Guy, but he himself was killed by Kaidou before he could succeed.

Repli-Mamoru is physically identical to Mamoru, the only visible difference is the blue glow he casts in Latio form instead of the real Mamoru's green, as well as his much paler appearance in human form. He possesses the same memories and desire to save the universe as the real Mamoru, but his purpose was twisted when changed by the 11 Planetary Masters of Sol. Even then his personality was similar, but Repli-Mamoru was willing to destroy and kill to accomplish his mission, blowing up the Chinese Scientific Aeronautics lab for one Q-Part and killing Papillon while gaining the final two. He also has the same powers as Mamoru, but using the restored PasQ Machine he could also perform Fusion with Repli-Galeon, forming GaiGar and GaoGaiGar with full use of their abilities.

Repli-Galeon[edit]

A clone created by the real Mamoru using the regeneration machine of the 11 Planetary Masters of Sol, he fought the Masters while the real Galeon was within the G-Crystal, awaiting his true programming to be restored by Mamoru. Like Repli-Mamoru, Repli-Galeon was captured by the Masters and reprogrammed by Failure Cain to accomplish their goal of retrieving the PasQ Machine on Earth.

Repli-Galeon was summoned during Repli-Mamoru's escape attempt from GGG Orbit Base, and with the aide of the PasQ Machine, performed Fusion with Repli-Mamoru to form GaiGar and linked with StealthGao II in attempt to escape. After evading HyoRyu, EnRyu, and Volfogg, he was shot down to Earth by Renais. After a short battle with GaoFar, he merged with the Q-GaoMachines to form GaoGaiGar, and demonstrated all of the abilities the original possessed while fighting GaoFighGar. Repli-Galeon was killed when GaoFighGar's Hell and Heaven broke through GaoGaiGar's attempt at the same attack.

While physically similar, Repli-Galeon is easily identified by his lack of colors, as he is almost completely white, especially in lion mode. He possesses the same abilities as the real Galeon and GaiGar and is even able to apply the GaoMachines the same way as the original.

Repli-Mobile Unit[edit]

Clones of HyoRyu, EnRyu, FuuRyu, RaiRyu, KouRyu, AnRyu, Volfogg and Mic Sounders the 13th created by Repli-Mamoru's accidental use of the Pas-Q Machine to duplicate Earth, then reprogrammed by the Sol Masters. Sent along with a mind-controlled Guy Shishio to fight King J-Der in orbit - however, they resisted the reprogramming and instead blocked the Goldion Hammer attack used by Guy at the cost of their own lives.

The Repli-Jins looked identical to their counterparts, but with washed-out color schemes.

Repli-Goldymarg[edit]

A clone of Goldymarg created by Repli-Mamoru's accidental use of the Pas-Q Machine to duplicate Earth, then reprogrammed by the Sol Masters. Equipped to Repli-GaoFighGar as the Goldion Hammer - however, he resisted the reprogramming and self-detonated, releasing a massive custom wave that destroyed all of the Repli-Carpenters as well as the entire replicate Orbit Base. Oddly, Repli-GaoFighGar (which was next to the source) was not harmed by this.

Repli-Goldymarg looked identical to the original Goldymarg, but with a washed-out color scheme.

11 Planetary Masters of Sol[edit]

The 11 Planetary Masters of Sol (ソール11遊星主 Sol Jūichi Yūseishu) were the primary antagonists of the OVA sequel series The King of Braves GaoGaiGar FINAL. They were a series of programs given material form—each powered by a Loud G-Stone—whose sole purpose was to restore the Tri-Star Solar System upon the destruction of the Zonder Master Program. However, much like the Z-Master, they had gone out of control and exceeded their original programming, using their dark matter-absorbing "Pas-Q Machine" to produce an entirely new universe that threatened to destroy the existing one in the process. Each of the Sol Masters is a direct counterpart to one of the protagonists, some more obviously than others.

Palparepa[edit]

The first of the 11 Masters to appear before GGG, and Guy's counterpart in the Sol Masters. He is the only one of the Sol Masters that does not appear to represent a planet. He takes the form of a medical doctor with a large syringe mounted over his right forearm (which serves as a bladed weapon, long-distance retrieval apparatus, and a neural manipulation tool) and a cylindrical apparatus mounted in place of his right eye that contains his Loud G-Stone. He can also sprout wings resembling those of a butterfly.

He is knowledgeable in the art of neurochemical manipulation: he personally reprogrammed the Repli-jin version of Mamoru Anami and at one point implanted "Chemical Bolts" into Evoluder Guy to manipulate his behavior. He also created "Paras Particles", particles which greatly relax nerve cells, and saturated Repli-Earth with them in order to isolate and destroy GaoFighGar.

Palparepa can perform "Chemical Fusion" with a gigantic object resembling a molecule to form the mechanoid Palparepa Plus (though only "Palparepa" is said, the tech specs in Episode 7 of FINAL list the full name as Plus). As opposed to the loud, fast-paced Final Fusion music, Chemical Fusion is accompanied by a soft, slow violin piece that is barely audible over the noise of the transformation. Palparepa appears to control the mechanoid in an identical manner to that by which Guy controls GaoGaiGar, from a chamber of light within the Loud G-Stone on the right side of the mechanoid's head. This form is equipped with reconfigurable arms and six gigantic syringes ("Doping Cylinders") mounted along its back, capable of detaching for independent attack. They can also connect in sequence to form "God and Devil," Palparepa's main weapon, or directly inject their "contents" into the mechanoid itself—evolving it into Palparepa Prajna. This is a stronger version of Palparepa, which takes on a much more angular form than Palparepa's former smooth design. The cape previously worn is transformed into wings, which appears to grant Palparepa flight equal to that of Genesic GaoGaiGar's Gadget Feathers. While in this state Palparepa himself becomes more muscular, with thick veins spread across his body. It also gains the ability to inject weakening Chemical Nanomachines into its target using snakelike tendrils from its back. These are used to attack Evoluder Guy directly before he rewrites them and sends them back into Palparepa using his Evoluder abilities.

After having his virus turned against them, Palparepa undergoes yet another transformation, gaining a pale green, nearly white glow and reverting to his former appearance within the mechanoid. The cause of this change is unclear - however, Evoluder Guy demonstrated a similar color change when he was infected with the Chemical Nanomachines, suggesting that the effect of infecting Palparepa with them was similar to the Doping Cylinders. This form (unnamed in any GaoGaiGar work to date) bears an even higher rate of regeneration than Prajna, and is capable of using stronger versions of all of Palparepa Prajna's abilities. This form manages to overwhelm Genesic GaoGaiGar (breaking Guy's Straight Drill and Protect Shade) until Guy becomes enraged, at which point he easily dominates Palparepa.

Palparepa is arrogant, self-assurred, and suffers from an extreme god complex; he sees GaoFighGar (and, by extension, Genesic GaoGaiGar) as The Devil, and is the only person besides the narrator to indicate that Guy is the God of Destruction. Scenes with Palparepa winning against Guy often include an image of God impaling the Devil on a golden sword. In his Palparepa Prajna form, he becomes much less self-controlled, while his final form pushes his god complex to new heights. In his final form, he is prone to claiming that absolute victory is something that only a god can achieve.

Palparepa is destroyed in Shinjuku, Repli-Japan, when Prajna is destroyed in a fight scene that pays homage to both the first and last fights of the TV series. He makes a final attempt to destroy Guy by ejecting from his mecha, flying into Galeon's mouth, and impaling Guy with his syringe, only for Evoluder Guy to crush the villain's personal Loud G-Stone in his left hand. Palparepa, along with all the Sol Masters save Pisa Sol and False Abel, is then replicated several dozen times by Pisa Sol. Several of these are destroyed by one shot from Genesic GaoGaiGar's Bolting Driver, and the rest are disintegrated by the Goldion Crusher. Any remaining Palparepas faded away with the destruction of Pisa Sol.

Palparepa's Chemical Fusion sequence was different in each of its appearances - the first had very different sound effects, which had a more alien tone to them, and the Loud G-Stone symbol on the head attachment was not made visible in this version (so as to add additional shock value near the end of Episode 4 of FINAL). Palparepa himself also sounds more agitated when speaking his own name during the second rendition.

Pillnus[edit]

Named for the planet Venus. Renais's counterpart in the Sol Masters. Program taking the form of a masked humanoid dominatrix with a wasp-like stinger positioned on her lower back, four insectoid wings, and a large, cylindrical shaft bearing a needle in place of her left arm. She bears a vague resemblance to the Zonderian Primarda and is often seen in the company of False Abel (some sources[citation needed] claim her to be False Abel's bodyguard). When not with False Abel, Pillnus is usually engaged in combat with Renais and J - during these fights she is usually accompanied by Pia Decem, whom she refers to as "Shinigami-chan" ("Mr. Death" in the dub).

Pillnus can shoot numerous metal chains out of her body at will, which are used to bind her targets and render them helpless. Pillnus can also fire a torrent of flame from her arm stinger, and can use her main stinger as an impaling weapon. Any specific function included with the main stinger is unknown.

She exhibits sadistic cruelty, taking extreme amusement in the pain of others; she especially enjoys torturing Renais Kerdif-Shishioh and Soldato J, taunting them about their apparent inability to completely defeat her. Pillnus also likes to create pet names, calling Pia Decem "Mister Death" and Renais "my kitty".

She was destroyed through a direct attack to her Loud G-Stone by Renais and Soldato J in Hyper Mode. Pillnus was then replicated several dozen times by Pisa Sol; all of these faded away with its destruction.

Pia Decem[edit]

Possibly represents the dwarf planet Pluto (ninth planet back then), as a Death Figure, or the Tenth Planet (theoretical at the time of the series' release) due to the name "Decem," which is Latin for "Ten." Soldato J's counterpart in the Sol Masters. This program takes a thin, black form vaguely resembling a scythe-wielding Grim Reaper, and does not speak. He is typically under False Abel's direct command and is often seen within his ship, Pia Decem Pit, which is the counterpart to J-Ark. Pit is based on an aircraft carrier; it attacks by launching a fleet of independent kamikaze fighter craft of three separate types. In action, these craft exhibit the same properties as weapons used by the J-Ark and King J-Der. Pillnus refers to Pia Decem as "Shinigami-chan", or "Mister Death", and tends to appear alongside her when clashing with Soldato J and Renais.

Arma (Ikumi Kaidou) is later installed as Pia Decem Pit's computer core by False Abel, connected in such a way that all damage sustained by the ship is routed directly to Arma's body. This was done to deter any attack from Soldato J.

On False Abel's orders, Pia Decem is capable of performing "Giga Fusion" with Pia Decem Pit to form the gigantic mechanoid Pia Decem Peak. Pia Decem controls Peak from a kneeling position atop Pit's Loud G-Stone. The Giga Fusion sequence involves a detachment and reattachment of a portion of Pia Decem Pit that appears similar to the J-Bird. Judging by its appearance and Giga Fusion's numerous parallels to Mega Fusion, this section might be capable of transforming into a form similar to J-Der, but this is otherwise unsubstantiated. This form was destroyed in Los Glaciares, Repli-Argentina with a point-blank attack to its Loud G-Stone using King J-Der's Ten-Linked Maser Cannons. Pia Decem Peak was then replicated several dozen times by Pisa Sol - all of these faded away with its destruction.

False Abel[edit]

Also spelled as Palus Abel, this program is made in the image of the Red Planet's leader, Abel; possibly named for the Solar System's own Red Planet, Mars. She is Ikumi Kaidou's counterpart in the Sol Masters and assumes an active command and leadership role with regard to the other Masters of Sol. Usually seen aboard Pia Decem Pit, accompanied by Pillnus and Pia Decem.

False Abel has telekinetic powers of flight and shielding similar to that of Failure Cain, Arma and Latio. She also bears a number of expanding energy firearms within her chest, revealed only when her cloak is spread.

She is immature, bearing a child's cruelty, and seems to treat the Sol Masters' fight against GGG as a game. Frequently taunts GGG over their inferiority and inability to match the Sol Masters, but is visibly shocked whenever the heroes manage to fight back - this culminates in the realization that she has been outmaneuvered at last when Genesic GaoGaiGar attacks Pisa Sol directly.

False Abel is the only one of the Sol Masters to not be killed directly by GGG at any point (although J and Renais almost destroy her as they eliminate Pillnus and Pia Decem Peak), and becomes the only one not replicated multiple times by Pisa Sol. She faded away with the destruction of Pisa Sol.

Failure Cain[edit]

Also spelled as Pei La Cain, this villain is possibly named for the Earth, Terra/Gaia. He is Mamoru's counterpart in the Sol Masters, made in the image of Cain, "the Green Planet's Protector" and Mamoru's father. He has telekinetic abilities similar in strength to Latio/Mamoru, and displays the ability to perform the same Hell and Heaven technique that Mamoru used in the series. Failure Cain is only differentiable from the true Cain by the inversion of the G-Stone symbol on his forehead, which also appears in the background when he performs Hell and Heaven.

He possesses at least as much knowledge as the man he was based upon, as he oversaw the successful reprogramming of Repli-Galeon. However, much unlike Cain, his personality seems bereft of any sincere kindness. He also uses his appearance to his advantage, instilling doubt and fear in GGG by making it seem that the one who originally built the Gao Machines has joined the Sol Masters.

Similar to Cain, he is capable of performing Fusion with Galeon, and attempted to do so at one point; this attempt failed when it was revealed that Galeon knew to recognize Evoluder Guy as the "true hero."

Failure Cain was destroyed in Repli-Earth's orbit when Mamoru Anami used Purification on him. Several dozen replicas of Failure Cain attempted to stop Genesic GaoGaiGar using the Goldion Crusher from reaching Pisa Sol with J-Ark's ES Missiles, but failed. All of said replicas faded away with the destruction of Pisa Sol.

Pisa Sol[edit]

The most powerful of the Sol Masters, and the only one who does not confront GGG in battle (False Abel observes the battle from the bridge of Pia Decem Peak). She is named for Sol (the Sun), but her counterpart in GaoGaiGar is unclear. Either Mikoto Utsugi or Goldymarg are the likely candidates for Pisa Sol's counterpart, but the former's regeneration and role as a supporter for the GGG heroes makes her more likely.

Pisa Sol performs Fusion with the Sol Masters' Regeneration Machine (disguised as Repli-Earth's sun, and using the Pas-Q Machine as its backbone circuit) in order to assume direct control of it during their fight against Genesic GaoGaiGar. She does not actively participate in combat, but uses her incredible regeneration abilities to repair her allies in their battles against GGG. After the bulk of the Sol Masters are defeated, she uses her full power to create hundreds of duplicate Sol Masters, seemingly securing their victory against the weakened GGG mecha.

However, the heroes reveal that this moment is what they have been waiting for; the exertion of replicating so many units in such a short time has left Pisa Sol's systems drained and defenseless. Using J-Ark's ES Missiles to rapidly transport itself to the enemy, Genesic GaoGaiGar destroyed the vulnerable core of Pisa Sol with the Goldion Crusher, supercharged by every G-Stone in GGG. This causes everything created as a result of the Pas-Q Machine to fade away, and returns the dark matter it stole to the universe.

Percurio[edit]

Named for the planet Mercury, Percurio is Mic Sounders the 13th's counterpart in the Sol Masters. It is fought in London, Repli-England, taking the form of a thin, oblong creature with a musical horn for a head in a white tuxedo, accompanied by a hovering metronome constantly in motion (which is also used as a secondary weapon). It stands atop "BluBalloon," a large, hovering, whale-like object seemingly made from parts of musical instruments and attacks using extreme sound manipulation (produced from many hovering "PoshuPoshu" speaker pods and played as swing music) capable of ravaging and shattering matter on a gigantic scale.

It was first destroyed by Mic's Disc F, but rapidly regenerated. It was destroyed again through Solitary Wave manipulation (via the suspension wires on London's Tower Bridge) by Mic Sounders the 13th. Percurio was then replicated several dozen times by Pisa Sol; all of these faded away with its destruction.

P-Vater[edit]

Named for the planet Jupiter. ChoRyuJin's counterpart in the Sol Masters, and the only one for whom the dualism is not obvious (although its slight heavy machinery theme makes it similar to the Zonder that was first battled by ChoRyuJin). Fought at the Taj Mahal in Repli-India, it takes the form of a humanoid combat mecha with a second pair of long, multi-segmented arms (equipped with rotating chainsaw blades) mounted on its back, agile enough to deflect energy blasts as well as strike an enemy. Also holds a weapon in its right hand capable of a forward-projecting, localized shockwave.

It was first destroyed by a full-barrage of ChoRyuJin's Ul-tech beams; after regenerating, it was scrapped again by HyoRyu and EnRyu's combined "Supernova" attack. P-Vater was subsequently duplicated several times by Pisa Sol; all of these faded away with its destruction.

Polturn[edit]

Named for the planet Saturn, this Sol Master was fought in Vladivostok, Repli-Russia. Volfogg's counterpart in the Sol Masters, Polturn resembled a tall, dark-armored samurai. It used two swords that it could control remotely or use for a spinning attack similar to Big Volfogg's Daikaiten Daimadan. It also displayed the ability to take control of GunDober and GunGlue.

Polturn was overpowered by Big Volfogg until the gunmachines were manipulated, allowing it to badly damage the enemy. However, Volfogg had actually used Kit Number 08 (a holographic image producer) to trick the Sol Master long enough for him to destroy Polturn's Loud G-Stone with one of his boomerangs and a Melting Siren attack. Polturn was then replicated several dozen times by Pisa Sol; all of these faded away with its destruction.

Puranus[edit]

Named for the planet Uranus. TenRyuJin's counterpart in the Sol Masters. Fought in Athens, Repli-Greece. Capable of flight. Carried a clear shield and a lance-like weapon containing missiles and beam weapons (Given that its beams were reflected and refracted by TenRyuJin's Hikari to Yami no Mai, they might be the same as Primerose Moon.) Also possessed a pair of chest-mounted lasers that were capable of slicing through TenRyuJin's armor instantaneously and could be fired in sweeps - these were used to slice off TenRyuJin's arms and weapons.

First destroyed by TenRyuJin's Double Nail Fire and again, after regenerating, through KoRyu and AnRyu's combined Internal Projectile-X. Puranus was then duplicated several dozen times by Pisa Sol; all of these faded away with its destruction.

Ptulone[edit]

Named for the planet Neptune. GekiRyuJin's counterpart in the Sol Masters, the most blatantly so. Resembled a cross between a mechanical jellyfish and a pair of lungs. One tentacle was equipped with a large fan, the other a massive electromagnet. Fought in Sankyuu, Repli-China. Controlled wind and electromagnetism, as well as the weather.

First destroyed by GekiRyuJin's "Shuāng Tóu Lóng" and again, after regenerating, with a compact and robust self-destruct device. Ptulone was then replicated several dozen times by Pisa Sol; these faded away with its destruction.

GGG Members[edit]

  • Mamoru Amami: An adopted alien child who was left with foster parents by Galeon; he possesses the mysterious power of Purification/ the powers of the Green Planet, and is able to cleanse an individual of Zonder Metal.
  • Guy Shishioh: An astronaut whose life was saved by Galeon and his technology when EI-01 first attacked Earth; he is able to combine with Galeon and the GGG-built GaoMachines to become GaoGaiGar.
  • Mikoto Utsugi: Guy's love interest and GGG support operator.
  • Taiga Kohtaroh: The charismatic chief of GGG and president of the Space Development Corporation that runs G-Island City .
  • Leo Shishioh: Guy's father, and GGG's chief scientist and inventor.
  • Swan White: An American GGG operator and Leo's assistant.
  • Geki Hyuuma: The hot-headed, musclebound tactical advisor.
  • Kosuke Entouji: GGG's disheveled, dandruff-ridden computer expert with an IQ of 300.
  • Hana Hatsuno: Mamoru's childhood friend.
  • Ikumi Kaidou: Mamoru's enigmatic classmate, like Mamoru, Kaidou is also from an alien planet and has the power of purification, the only difference is that Kaidou's power comes from the Red Planet.

As with most of the Brave series, there are also intelligent transforming robots who complement the human characters. In this show, they are constructed by GGG and their affiliated organizations with personalities based on highly advanced "Super-AI" Artificial Intelligence technology obtained from Galeon's databanks. They include HyoRyu and EnRyu, a pair of 'twin brother' robots with vastly different personalities; their military-trained Chinese counterparts FuuRyu and RaiRyu; the intrepid ninja police car Volfogg; the stubborn Goldymarg, whose AI is based on Geki Hyuuma's personality; and the American-made Mic Sounders the 13th, a rock music-playing robot who can use several types of special waves to restore the energy of allies or destroy the enemy.

Zonderians[edit]

Alien beings tasked with the goal of infecting all of Earth with their Zonder Metal. The Machine World Four Heavenly Kings are notably more intelligent than the Zonder created by the humans fused with Zonder Metal.

  • Pizza: Pizza's eyes are always hidden behind his baseball cap and long, upswept hair, making his beaklike nose his most prominent feature; his Zonderian form is quite birdlike, complete with beak helmet/facemask and clawed feet. Obsessed with speed, Pizza is faster than his "rival" Guy by far; only when Guy activates his Hyper Mode does he come close to matching Pizza's velocity. After the first Arc Pizza becomes purified and returns to his normal form Soldato-J, a warrior of the Red Planet.
  • Penchinon: An odd-looking man with one huge yellow eye and another similarly oversized bug-eye with the picture of an anchor, and oversized chattering teeth. Dressed in a simple sailor's outfit, he always has a huge grin on his face. His Zonderian form is a large boat, with feet, hands and a paddle wheel. His yellow eye takes prominent place in the fore of the boat. After the first Arc Penchinon is also purified and takes on the form of J-Ark, the robot which Soldato-J fuses with to become King J-der.
  • Polonaise: Polonaise appears as a heavyset gentleman, dressed in a conductor's uniform but with his hair growing down all the way to the floor. His eyes remain perpetually covered in sunglasses and his pipe stays ever-present in hand. In Zonderian form, his head and hair are replaced by a hybrid locomotive engine & caterpillar. Otherwise, he looks much the same.
  • Primada: Primada appears to be a pale ballerina-type woman with flowing orange hair; her Zonderian form is reminiscent of a motorcycle, complete with tires, rear-view mirrors and headlights.

These four Zonderians are headquartered beneath Tokyo Tower and take their orders from the enigmatic Pasder, who appears as just a giant purple head, formed of metal tubes and piping.

Following the Zonderian's defeat, their superiors, the 31 Machine Primevals, appear to finish the job their servants could not complete. In their first appearance, three Primevals easily defeat GaoGaiGar and even destroy GGG's underwater base. Each Primeval represents a particular body part, and has some special ability linked to that organ.

Other antagonists in succeeding GaoGaiGar works include the criminal terrorist organization BioNet, and the 11 Planetary Masters of Sol.

GGG Mecha[edit]

GaoGaiGar[edit]

  • GaoGaiGar: GaoGaiGar itself is a powerfully-built machine formed from GaiGar (Guy fused with Galeon) and the GaoMachines
  • StarGaoGaiGar: GaiGar fused with the GaoMachines, but replaces Stealth Gao with Stealth Gao 2
    • GaiGar: The fused robot of Guy and Galeon.
      • Guy Shishioh: An astronaut whose life was saved by Galeon and his technology when EI-01 first attacked Earth; he is able to combine with Galeon and the GGG-built GaoMachines to become GaoGaiGar.
      • Galeon: The mecha lion that saved Guy from EI-01's attack and responsible for bringing Mamoru to earth.
    • Stealth Gao: modeled after a Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit stealth bomber.
    • Liner Gao: modeled after a shinkansen-type high-speed train
    • Drill Gao: a drill tank
    • Stealth Gao 2: an upgraded version of Stealth Gao, with engines capable of space travel and combat

Goldion Hammer[edit]

  • Goldymarg: The stubborn Goldymarg, whose AI is based on Geki Hyuuma's personality. He transforms into the Marg Hand and combines with GaoGaiGar, becoming his final attack the Goldion Hammer.

Kyodai (Twin) Mecha[edit]

  • ChoRyuJin: The fused robot of the twin-robots. He uses both the powers of ice and fire. His final attack is the Eraser Head 99.
    • HyoRyu: The blue twin-brother robot. He turns into a truck crane and uses the power of ice.
    • EnRyu: The red twin-brother robot. He turns into a fire engine and uses the power of fire.
  • GekiRyuJin: The fused robot of the twin-robots. He uses both the powers of wind and electricity
    • FuRyu: The green twin-brother robot developed in China. He turns into a concrete mixer and uses the power of wind. (Resembles the personality of HyoRyu).
    • RaiRyu: The yellow twin-brother robot developed in China. He turns into a dump truck and uses the power of electricity. (Resembles the personality of EnRyu).
  • GenRyuJin: The combined form of HyoRyu and RaiRyu through the use of "The Power". He uses the power of electricity and ice.
  • GouRyuJin: The combined form of EnRyu and FuRyu through the use of "The Power". He uses the power of wind and fire.

Intelligence Unit Mecha[edit]

  • Big Volfogg: The combined robot of Volfogg and the two Gun Machines
    • Volfogg: The intrepid ninja police car robot. His main goal is to protect Mamaru Amami at all costs.
    • Gun Glue: A helicopter robot that is remotely controlled by Volfogg. He combines to become Big Volfogg's left arm.
    • Gun Dober: A motorcycle robot that is remotely controlled by Volfogg. He combines to become Big Volfogg's right arm.

Sound-wave Mecha[edit]

  • Mic Sounders the 13th: The American-made Mic Sounders the 13th, a rock music-playing robot who can use several types of special waves to restore the energy of allies or destroy the enemy.

Other Mecha[edit]

  • King J-Der: Combined form of J-Ark and Soldat-J, although King J-Der isn't a part of the GGG force he still helps the crew defeat the Z-Master.
    • J-Ark: The purified form of Penchinon.
    • J-Bird/J-Der
    • J-Carrier
    • J-Rider
    • Soldat-J: The purified form of Pizza, although he still has a rivalry with Guy he manages to put it aside until the Z-Master is defeated.

The mecha themselves, as with much seen in the Brave series, were created by prolific mechanical designer Kunio Okawara. GaoGaiGar's final attack, Hell and Heaven, combines all its powers to rip the core out of a Zonder Robo, destroying it without harming the Zonder core itself. GaoGaiGar later obtains auxiliary "tools" built by GGG, not the least of which is an even more powerful finishing blow in the form of the Goldion Hammer, a gravity shockwave-generating tool larger than GaoGaiGar itself.

GaoGaiGar is succeeded in later works by GaoFighGar, Genesic GaoGaiGar and GaoGaiGo.
