- Rei (レイ?): A mysterious man with amnesia who joined as a member of ZAP SPACY. He is hostile to monsters and uses his Battle Nizer to fight them. He is haunted by the image of the giant buried in the rock. So far, he has only summoned Gomora (ゴモラ?), Litra (リトラ Ritora?), and Eleking (エレキング Erekingu?).
- Hyuga (ヒュウガ Hyūga?): The captain of the Space Pendragon. He is hot-blooded man who is excellent in martial arts and has overcome many hardships all over the universe. Members have to call him "Boss." His full name is Hiroshi Hyuga (日向 浩 Hyūga Hiroshi?).
- Haruna (ハルナ?): The subcaptain of the Space Pendragon. She is a strict ace pilot and is Hyuga's right-hand man. Although she was skeptical of Rei, she was rescued from Neronga by him and reconciled with him. Her full name is Jun Haruna (榛名 ジュン Haruna Jun?).
- Oki (オキ?): The rookie crew member of the Space Pendragon. He is a monster maniac who was majoring in monsterology at university. He reasoned that the giant in Rei's memory is Ultraman. His full name is Koichi Oki (隠岐 恒一 Oki Kōichi?).
- Kumano (クマノ?): The engineer of the Space Pendragon. His full name is Masahiko Kumano (熊野 雅彦 Kumano Masahiko?).
- Hiroki (ヒロキ?): The leader of Vincent Island which was the officer of the resources transportation base in Belargo City, and Jun's elder brother. He has once served as the subcaptain of the Space Pendragon under Hyuga. His full name is Hiroki Haruna (榛名 ヒロキ Haruna Hiroki?).
- Ato (アトウ Atō?): The subleader of Vincent Island who was a scientist of Belargo city.
- Karen Mikura (御蔵 カレン Mikura Karen?): A girl who is one of the survivors in Belargo City. She had taken care of a mysterious baby temporarily. She discovered the mysterious giant and heard the mysterious giant's voice.
- Kate (ケイト Keito?): A mysterious woman who interferes with Rei using every possible means and has a Battle Nizer like Ray's. She uses the appearance of a bio-plant researcher named Maki Azusa (アズサ マキ Azusa Maki?). While she appears to be evil in her first appearance, it is revealed that she is Rei's older sister and her goal is to reawaken Rei as Reimon and like him is an Alien Reiblood. So far, she has only summoned Fire Golza (ファイヤーゴルザ Faiyā Goruza?), Gan-Q (ガンQ Gankyū?), and Zetton (ゼットン?). In the finale, she uses Zetton to battle Rei's Gomora and wins, only to be attacked by King Joe Black (キングジョーブラック Kingu Jō Burakku?) who fights Zetton to a standstill. In the end, she succeeds in her goal and Reimon is awakened but Gomora becomes EX Gomora and kills Zetton, seemingly killing Kate in the process. However, in Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle Neo, it was revealed she'd survived.
On Vincent Island is a mysterious giant buried in the rocks that appears in Rei's visions. It had created a spiritual barrier on Vincent Island to protect it, sacrificing its life in the process. It is eventually revealed to be Ultraman, and is a key in Rei's reawakening as Reimon.
