Baba Lamunade (Voiced by Takeshi Kusao): Lamunade bears a good resemblance to his father, since he is his son and the hero of the series. He is different from Ramune as he is less interested in video games than his father, but nevertheless amazed by them. He falls in love with more than one girl, apart from Parfait he develops sentimental feelings for Drum. He has the same catch phrase that his father uses ("I'm feeling incredibly hot blooded!!! RIGHT NOW!!!) and sometimes states a fact, and say that its written in his DNA.
Parfait The Shrine Maiden (Voiced by Yuko Miyamura): She one of the two "Shrine Maidens" who brings Lamunade into the Doki Doki space. She is rather bossy and seems to have an assertive attitude towards Lamunade, whom she calls "Lamuness", like Milk in the first series. She acts no different, but does get jealous and angry when she sees her man with another girl. She has long magenta colored hair, and magenta eyes and her color scheme is magenta colored. In the OVA, Parfait is a holy virgin in training. Beyond the third episode of the OVA, she pilots an experimental mecha naked, as the cockpit is filled with water as a shock absorber.
Cacao (Voiced by Kyoko Hikami): She is the other "Shrine Maiden" along with Parfait. She is timid and kind of oblivious to what is going on around her. Cacao is not fearless and she can fight which surprises many due to her small frame. She has a pendant that helps their team find each and every "Otamagate". In the OVA, she is a full-fledged holy virgin and she has strong magical powers. The dark-skinned girl explains that this magic works best when the body is unconstricted, and is thus naked at various points throughout the OVA.
Da Cider(Voiced by Kazuki Yao): The same character from the previous series. He meets up with the new Lamuness in the second episode after attempting to save him from Pheromone Lip and Narcist Dandy and is Lamuness' partner to pilot Kaiser Fire. He eventually follows the footsteps of the first generation Cider, that is fighting with Lamuness and at the end watching him fight Abraham.
Heavy Metal Ko (Voiced by TARAKO): Cider's snake-like companion, also from the previous series.
PQ (voiced by Koorogi Satomi): He's the one who summon Kaiser Fire for Lamunade (Much like Tama Q did for King Scassher in the original series) and he is often pinched by him.
Akakaze & Momokaze (Voiced by Takeshi Kusao & Chisa Yokoyama) – A.K.A. Ramune & Milk. They are now married and very in-love. They both hide under costumes which is a parody of Gatchaman since they do not want too many questions to be asked. They have become stupid and lazy and their costumes were their wedding clothing which Milk designed.
Narcist Dandy & Pheromone Lip(Voiced by Yasunori Matsumoto & Michiko Neya): A grossly muscular man with a busty woman. These two are the new comic relief duo villains of the series. They try to stop Lamunade from reaching Don Genosai, but like Don Genosai they are priests of the Kira Kira temple.
Mito Natto(voiced by Showtaro Morikubo): He is a young dog ruler of Gao-Gao zone. Lamunade saves him from hunger and since then he became friends with him and is the owner of the second guardian knight Graf Thunder.
Drum, Trumpet, Cello, and Organ Symphony (Voiced by Yuka Imai (does Symphony as well as Drum), Tomoko Kawakami (Trumpet) & Naoko Takano (Cello)): They are three cyborgs created to protect the Hero Lamuness, but for the first Lamuness. Lamune never awakened them in the series because he was not the one to find them, it was Lamunade. Drum Loves the 1st hero through Lamunade because they look alike, Cello is sweet and cute, and Trumpet is gentle and pretty. Organ Symphony is the creator of the female cyborgs, in which Drum is modeled after her. They can pilot the 3rd guardian knight "Water Barron". Drum gives Lamuness a bell to call them if he ever needs help.
Don Genosai(Voiced by Kôzô Shioya): The main villain mastermind in charge of resurrecting Abraham, but is the head priest of the Kira Kira temple. It is later revealed he was under Abraham's control.
BQ (voiced by Satomi Koroogi): After when Abraham awakens within the body of first Lamuness, BQ appeared to command Narcissist Dandy and Pheromone Lip.
