This page describes the characters appearing in Yoshiyuki Tomino's Overman King Gainer and the tropes associated to them. Please help out with the blurbs.

Also, MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD! Proceed with caution.

Yapan Exodus

Gainer Sanga

Sara Kodama

Gain Bijou

Ana Medaiyu

Bello Korissha

Hughes Gauli

  Gainer: An orange suit? Doesn't it kind of stand out?

Siberian Railroad / St. Reagan / London IMA

Asuham Boone

Zakki Bronco

Jin Yassaba

  • Adult Child: Weird example; he seems to bounce between acting like an immature kid and an extremely stern and capable pilot and leader.
  • Cool Old Guy: Not that old (see below), but he does fit.
    • Apparently this was why he was dropped as a character - he's too cool in a world without many cool adults and was threatening to overshadow the others. (The director even apologized to Hisao Egawa for this.)
  • Disney Death
  • Freudian Excuse: The reason why he's so dedicated to stopping Exodi from taking place? His parents went into one, and he was discriminated and bullied by other children for that.
  • Heel Face Turn: You can actually recruit him in Super Robot Wars games.
  • Hot-Blooded
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Kill It with Fire: One of his Overman's weapons.
  • Manly Tears: When Adette defends him from his ungrateful underlings, he melts into water works...
  • Michael McConnohie
  • Parental Abandonment: Quite literally, as the manga reveals.
  • Pet the Dog: During his forced stay in a city unit, he saves an impoverished little girl from being bullied and begins to act as a surrogate father figure to her. He later travels with her to her homeland (if this troper recalls correctly, the country was basically India)
  • Time Stands Still: His Rushrod's Overskill. Sort of; anything that crosses paths with the attack will stop dead in its tracks.
  • Younger Than They Look: He's 32, but looks much older than that.

Adette Kirstler

Kashmir Valle

  "If I don't fight, I can't lose!"

Kejinan, Enge and Jaboli

  • Anguished Declaration of Love: Kejinan to Adette while holding her captive with his Overman. He was utterly shot down.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Jaboli.
  • Bishonen: Kejinan tried to be one with his Overman's illusionary powers in the Anguished Declaration of Love above. It just makes him look ridiculous.
  • Bodyguard Crush: Jaboli had one for Asuham.
  • Country Mouse: Jaboli again, as Word of God says. Personality-wise, though, she's not quite as naive. Kejinan and Enge are also hinted to have been born in the boonies.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: Jaboli is the sanest of the bunch, and tries her hardest to point out what not to do in combat. Sadly, Kejinan and Enge don't listen to her...
  • Dave Wittenberg: Kejinan's English dub voice actor
  • Despair Event Horizon: Played for laughs when Kashmir tested his new Overman whose overskill is to lower morale and cause doubt in people's minds. They forgot their helmet.
  • Elite Mooks: They pilot a trio of low-level Overmen who still manage to give some trouble to Gainer...
  • Eyepatch of Power: Enge...though the power part is debatable...
  • Gonk: Kejinan
  • Jerkass: Kejinan again. He's not evil, mind you, but good luck getting along with such a self-centered cad!
  • Lolicon: Both Kejinan and Enge. They found Cynthia to be hot, for crying out loud!
  • Meganekko: Jaboli
  • Only Sane Man: Jaboli again. Poor girl, being forced to put up with Kejinan and Enge...
  • Punch Clock Villain: They work for the paycheck and for the chance of getting a promotion. That's it. They even considered quitting the job at various points in the show.
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad
  • Richard Epcar: Enge's English dub voice actor
  • Terrible Trio: Not so terrible, really...
  • What Do You Mean Its Not Symbolic: Their Overmen are often compared to a trio of flying Buddhas...
