Tropes associated with Suzuka:

Gilliam II

Voiced by: Takaya Hashi (JP), Peter Spellos (EN)

Tropes associated with Gilliam II (as well as the Outlaw Star)

  • Catch Phrase: Gilliam would like to remind you that the Outlaw Star is the most advanced ship in the galaxy.
  • Cool Ship: One of several in the series.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Makes valid complaints, not that the crew listens.
  • Do Androids Dream?: Parodied. Gilliam is programmed with a mental block that prevents him from questioning or meditating on his existence or purpose -- so instead of contemplating his navel, he contemplates his inability to contemplate his navel. Meta.
  • Only Sane Man: Constantly points out the recklessness of the crew.

The Villains

The MacDougal Brothers

File:RonMacDougal 1031.jpg

Ron is voiced by: Kazuhiro Nakata (JP), John Snyder (EN)

Harry is voiced by: Tsutomu Kashiwakura (JP), Steve Staley (EN)

  • Artificial Human: Harry.
  • Artificial Limbs: Harry gains a prosthetic arm, which seems to give him super-hacking abilities. Later on, most of his body is replaced.
  • Ax Crazy: Harry.
  • But for Me It Was Tuesday: When Gene confronts Ronald about the death of his father, he casually mentions that he doesn't recall, as he can't be bothered to remember every single person he's killed.
  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: Inverted. If anything, Harry becomes more stable the more cybernetics his body takes on.
  • Evil Counterpart: Both of them could qualify for different aspects of Gene. Ron is a cool, calculating fighter who plans ahead, whereas Gene is hotheaded and prone to making stuff up as he goes along. Harry, his romantic rival, is disturbingly open with his feelings for Melfina and pursues her aggressively, while Gene keeps his feelings for her hidden to the point of seeming uncaring.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Ronald has a scar across the left side of his lip. Makes it look like he's always smirking. Probably is.
  • Pet the Dog: The two brothers do genuinely love each other and Ron is particularly upset when it looks like Harry's been killed. We also find out that while his obsession with her was pretty far from healthy, Harry's feelings for Melfina were purer than they first seemed.
  • Psycho for Hire: Ronald is the calmer, more businesslike of the two, but Harry definitely counts.
  • Sanity Strengthening. Harry starts off as an Ax Crazy Stalker with a Crush to Melfina but as the series goes on he becomes more loving and gentle towards her and even makes peace with Gene before his death.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang
  • Villainous Crush: Harry toward Melfina.
  • Wetware CPU: Much like Melfina, Harry can connect to the MacDougal's ship. It's part of the reason for his obsession with her.
  • Wild Card: They're willing to take jobs from any of the three factions, as long as it pays well. The Wild Card aspect REALLY comes into play when they finish a job for the Kei Pirates...only to start on a job they got from the Space Forces that involves killing said pirates.
  • Yandere: Again, Harry towards Melfina.

The Kei Pirates

File:Keipiratesstart 3680.jpg
  • Badass: Although they appear less often then most villains, the group is undeniably powerful and up to the job.
  • Badass Normal: Shimi appears to be the only member of the pirates lacking either sorcery or supernatural powers, but is arguably the one who comes closest to killing Gene and the rest of the crew.
  • Bigger Bad: We know practically nothing about Hazanko's superiors, the Tendo King and the Tempa Emperor. However, considering that Hazanko, who is no slouch himself, felt he needed something like the Galactic Leyline to take on either of them it seems reasonable to assume that they are bugnuts terrifying.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Hanmyo being a master of "Space combat with cats" certainly invokes this trope. Ultimately, it means she pilots a grappler ship with two detachable arms, each piloted by a super-intelligent cat.
  • Informed Ability: Tobigera's a member of the Anten Seven, Hazanko's elite group of assassins, but his first attempt on the heroes was pure comic relief during the Hot Springs Episode, and after that he never gets a chance to prove himself.
    • He's also supposed to be a master of disguise, but never gets a chance to prove it. You'd think wearing an evil-looking mask all the time wouldn't do much to disguise you, though.
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad: The Anten Seven fit the bill for the Kei Pirates as a whole.
  • Space Pirates: Well, yeah.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Hanmyo.
  • Villainous Crush: Hanmyo and Jim. Neither of them knows who the other is.
  • Walking Armory: Shimi a.k.a. Leilong has a lot of weapons.
