Alien Metron Marluru
A wandering alien from Planet Metron came to Earth shortly after the establishment of the Terrestrial Peaceable Union (TPU). Marluru has a wealth of knowledge on intergalactic monsters and is assigned as an operator for Expert Team GUTS-Select. Despite the cute and cuddly appearance, has a razor-sharp tongue.
He is voiced by M・A・O (Mao Ichimichi) who had previously played Luka Milfy (Gokai Yellow) in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, Raptor 283 (Washi Pink) in Uchu Sentai Kyuranger, Chibigaru in Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger and Ai-chan in Kamen Rider Zero-One.
Carmeara, the Captivating Warrior
Height: 49 meters
Weight: 39,000 tons
Leader of the Dark Giants, in the Ultra-Ancient times this formidable female warrior threatened to plunge the world into eternal darkness. Breaking the seal that locked her away for 30 million years, she once again appears on our planet with Darrgon and Hudram. She uses dark monsters as henchmen to wreak havoc on Earth as she relentlessly pursues Trigger with her weapons of terrible power: the Carmeara Whip, a whip made from deadly beams, and the fearsome Carmeara Baton. What twisted goal have they come here to accomplish? What sinister plan lies in store?
She is voiced by Sumire Uesaka whom many fans call “Sumepi”
Darrgon, the Herculean Fighter
Weight: 68,000 tons
One of the Dark Giants that appear on Earth with Carmeara. Darrgon, a brutish fighter cut from military cloth, values raw strength above all else and lives only for the thrill of the fight. His special move, the “Fire Beat Crusher”, sends shockwaves of flame driving through the earth with tremendous destructive power.
Shunichi Maki who had recently voiced one of the Warudo in Zenkaiger and voiced Gapiya Seijin Abel in Ultraman Taiga will be voicing Darrgon.
Hudram, the Agile Tactician
Height: 57 meters
Weight: 52,000 tons
One of the Dark Giants that appears on Earth with Carmeara. He is comparatively weak, but what he lacks in strength, he makes up for with his nimble maneuvering and brutal cunning on the battlefield. His specialty is psychological warfare, provoking his opponent’s emotions and using their own mind against them. The Hudrast, a slashing, vacuumous wave released from the blade on his arm, overwhelms his enemies with a powerful wind.
