Trowa Barton in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing

The third member of the G Team, Trowa Barton, is the most experienced soldier and a skilled infiltrator; he’s often shown wearing enemy uniforms. He’s the only member of the group that was born on Earth. Personality-wise, Trowa is exceedingly calm and patient, with a determination that can only be described as inhuman.

Heero Yuy from Mobile Suit Gundam Wing

The man we know as Heero Yuy is the main protagonist in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, despite not being the leader of the G Team. Having been disciplined since childhood, and with a little genetic manipulation, Heero is the most skilled of the five Gundam pilots. In combat he has no compassion for his enemies and is often described as the perfect soldier, although he normally has no trouble displaying emotion outside of a battle.

Himura Kenshin from Rurouni Kenshin

We find Kenshin roaming the Japanese countryside, carrying his reverse-blade sword (sakabatō), in search of redemption for the lives he has taken. He has made a vow to never kill again. Kenshin is known throughout Japan as the legendary swordsman and assassin, Hitokiri Battōsai. However, we see that he is really a soft spoken and humble person – quite the opposite of what would be expected.

Professor Juniper

Professor Juniper in Pokémon

Professor Juniper is the first female professor in the Pokémon series. Her specialisation is Pokémon origin and she is an old friend of Professor Oak, because who isn’t, right? Her clothes are pretty plain, especially when compared to the other Pokémon Profs.

Professor Elm in Pokémon

Professor Elm was Professor Oak’s top student. He studies Pokémon abilities and specialises in Pokémon breeding (and is credited with the discovery of Pokémon eggs). Elm is a known scatterbrain who, when working, forgets to eat. He often gets so focused on his studies that he becomes completely oblivious to his surroundings.

Professor Birch

Professor Birch in Pokémon

Professor Birch is the stoutly Pokémon professor for the Hoenn Region. He is more outgoing than the other professors and often takes his research with him outdoors, hence those really cool sandals. Birch’s research specialisation is Pokémon behaviour in the wild.

Quatre Raberba Winner in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing

Quatre is the pilot of Sandrock and leader of “G Team.” Along with the four other members: Heero Yuy (Wing Gundam), Duo Maxwell (Deathscythe), Trowa Barton (Heavyarms) and Chang Wufei (Shenlong), he is sent to Earth as part of a plan to take revenge on the OZ military corporation. Quatre believes in the idea of pacifism and is often reluctant to kill an enemy. He is kind and humble, as well as being the best dressed of the group.

Giovanni from Pokémon

As the head of Team Rocket and the former gym leader for the Viridian City gym in the Kanto Region, Giovanni chooses Persian as his Pokémon. He normally has a very calm demeanour, trusting Jessie and James despite their nearly uncountable number of failures, but he is really a ruthless and evil leader. Let’s just say his fashion style is… unique.

Professor Oak in Pokémon

Are you a boy? Or are you a girl? Professor Oak is the very first Pokémon Professor you meet in the wonderful world of Pokémon. He’s forgetful, unable to remember the name of his nephew in games and he’s always around to remind you that you can’t use a bike in the ocean. However, he is an indispensable companion to Ash (and, really, all trainers).

Malcolm Tucker from In The Loop

Malcolm Tucker (Peter Capaldi) is the foul-mouthed and hilarious protagonist of the British series The Thick of It and the 2009 film In the Loop. His clothing style is the basic business look: suit and tie, button up dress shirt, black shoes, black belt. The rest of the character is about getting overly creative with your insults.
