An idol singer who made her debut inside the Macross and is tremendously popular. She was attracted to Hikaru Ichijō when she was rescued by him. After that, she was taken captive by the Zentrādi Forces and separated from Hikaru. When they met again, Misa Hayase was at his side. Even though she was filled with grief, Minmei—having been admonished by Hikaru—returned to herself as a singer, and sang to the Zentrādi and Meltrandi. That song moved the hearts of the giants, and helped end the war.*
Translators note: originally was "The song..." ("A" song is probably closer).
A 2-hour special TV drama that was produced in the Macross 7 Fleet. It scored an audience rating of 94%.
A communication officer working at the New Edwards Base on planet Eden, and is a member of the YF-19 development team in the "Super Nova Project". She had an intimate relationship with test pilot Isamu Dyson.
The son of the distinguished L.A.I. Co. Even though he is a student of the Aerospace Department's Pilot Course at Mihoshi Academy High School, he enlisted in the Private Military Provider S.M.S. On top of that, Luca also holds the title of Special Advisor in the L.A.I. Technology Research Division. Although he is a charming and pure boy, he tries to be ruthless because he cannot protect his upper classmate Nanase Matsūra—whom he has fallen in love with—and makes every effort to protect the Macross Frontier Fleet.
The leader of Fire Bomber, in charge of keyboards and song arrangements. Rei was an ace pilot in the Unified Forces Pink Pecker squad, but he lost his best friend due to an error in judgment and was discharged from the military. During his subsequent wanderings, he met Basara Nekki and formed a band with hope of living in Basara's songs. In addition, from the standpoint of his former Unified Forces, Rei played a part in Project M and gave the Fire Valkyrie to Basara—which also served as the combat testing of the VF-19.

* Translator's note: was only "Unified Forces" in the original ed.
The leader of Team Rex, a group of woman-only bikers. She's a stalwart woman who is idolized by her friends. Even though she was repulsed by Fire Bomber when they first met, together with the other team members she became a fan when she saw Nekki Basara risking his life and singing.
An ace pilot renown as the ace-of-aces in the Unified Forces. Roy served as a test pilot for the Variable Fighter, and at the end of the Unification War he led a VF-0 squad and went to war in the "Bird Man Incident"—he lost his former lover Aries Turner at that time. Roy headed Skull Squadron in the Macross, but was injured in a battle on the Earth and lost his life as he didn't tend to his injuries. In addition, before he became a soldier, Roy belonged to the stunt flight team that was presided over by Hikaru Ichijō's father, and he loved Hikaru like he was his real younger brother.
The ace pilot who is the leader of Skull Flight*. Roy went to rescue Hikaru and the others that were attacked by the enemy in the Saturn Sector. Even though Roy stormed into the Zentrādi ship, enemy soldiers surrounded him, and he was taken prisoner. When he escaped, Roy was unexpectedly hit by Kamujin 03350 and sustained a serious injury—they both perished as they mutually struck each other.
* Translator's note: unclear if is a typo or not, but the kanji for "Flight" is used, not the one for "Squadron" (which is used in the preceding definition for the Zero/M incarnation).
The first man in the Mayan Island folklore. Its said that he was created when the "Bird Man" cut off the Fish Man's tail fin and legs sprung out from that opening in the Fish Man's body.
The wife of Rōikanu in the Mayan Island folklore. Its said that the "Bird Man" decapitated himself for Rōikanu, who had lamented that he lived alone, and the blood that flowed out became the female Rōiwaka.
One of the Battle 7 bridge operators. She was terrified to see how the Varōta Forces absorbed Spiritia during her first battle.
A scholar who belongs to the planet Zola Patrol Corps and studies the Galactic Whales. As the natural vibration frequency of the Galactic Whales changed with Basara Nekki's songs, Lawrence hypothesized that the Galactic Whales are intelligent beings with intentions. However, his hypothesis was verified by the response of the White Whale to Basara's songs.*
* Translator's note: originally was "(And) his hypothesis was verified... ."
Traffickers—led by Rothscha—who sell a wealth of weapon procurements through dark connections.
The captain of the Unified Forces aircraft carrier Asuka. He received orders to obtain the AFOS—a Protoculture relic—and was dispatched to the seas near Mayan Island.
A member of the 8th Reconnaissance-in-force Squadron under the command of Buritai. He couldn't forget the culture of the Macross that he had witnessed during reconnaissance, and he defected to the ship. After the First Interstellar War, he worked and lived [on the Earth], and later married [Macross] operator Vanessa Laird.
One of the troops that invaded the Macross in a Nūjaderu-Gā. He was astonished by the songs of the Minmei Doll that he had recovered, and backed away from it.
A VF-25 optional armament for long-range support attacks that Michael Blanc's Valkyrie was equipped with. In addition to the Sniper Rifle, a dedicated FCS is added to the VF-25G's avionics bay, and a Gunner Kit is built into the EX-Gear of the pilot—who is a sniper—to accurately transmit the shot timing of the learned pilot to the FCS fire control booster.
A Destroid for work operated by the Macross Frontier Fleet. As it is based on the Cheyenne II, the Works has plenty of output and been roped into all sorts of heavy work.
The prototype presented by Shinsei Industry in the "Super Nova Project", which determined the next all-regime fighter. Clearly different from conventional VFs, such technologies as a Pinpoint Barrier System and Active Stealth were installed in the YF-19, and it was able to make Space Folds by itself with an optional Fold Booster. Even though the YF-19 is a high-end model that one could say is the culmination of reliable existing technologies, its performance was too high and that resulted in a lack of pilots who could handle the fighter. However, its intrinsic performance was fully teased out due to Isamu Dyson taking up the role of test pilot, and eventually the YF-19 beat the rival YF-21 fighter and won the next main fighter position. Conformal-type FAST Packs that have little effect on the YF-19's aerodynamic performance were developed as supplemental armaments.
The General Galaxy prototype that voraciously incorporated new Zentrādi technologies and competed with the YF-19 in the "Super Nova Project". Like the YF-19, a Pinpoint Barrier System and Active Stealth were installed in the YF-21, and it has a Fold Booster and FAST Packs as supplemental armaments. Also, due to such things as releasing the limiter so that the Valkyrie's full performance could be pulled out and lightening the airframe by purging the dead weight, the YF-21 achieves astonishing high-manoeuvrability. However, that is a double-edged sword that puts g-forces on the pilot that exceed the limits of the human body. Even though the YF-21 lost the next main fighter position, the usefulness and potential performance of its innovative systems were recognized, and the redesigned VF-22S Sturmvogel II was officially adopted as a special forces Valkyrie.
The YF-24 is a prototype Valkyrie from the development project jointly set up by Shinsei Industry and General Galaxy in the search for the next-generation Variable Fighters. The YF-24 is a Valkyrie that incorporated the new technologies of the next generation, such as ISC, EX-Gear, linear actuators, and versatility from optional equipment. However, in addition to the difficulty in the development of ISC—which has been attracting attention as the trump card for exceeding the limits of manned Variable Fighters—the YF-24's development was suspended as the urgent need for a next generation VF disappeared as a result of the excellent VF-171 as a substitute Valkyrie. After that, Shinsei Industry continued to independently improve ISC, and named the Valkyrie that they completed the YF-24 Evolution.*
* Translator's note: originally was: "After that, Shinsei Industry continued to independently improve and miniaturize ISC, and the Valkyrie that completely attained it is the YF-24 Evolution."
The first habitable planet discovered after the inauguration of the Humankind Dissemination Plan. Eden is in the Groombridge System, which is a dozen light years from the Solar System. Eden is also a popular tourist destination.
A remote planet inhabited by the Zolans in the 67th Planetary District. It is a planet that the Galactic Whales seasonally migrate to—there is a lot of bacteria on the planet due to that migration.
