Characters

;nihongo|Shishimaru|獅子丸: Shishimaru is the reincarnation of the original nihongo|Lion-Maru|ライオン丸|Raionmaru and the third human to use the power of Lion-Maru. This version of Shishimaru is very different from the original, he is not as serious as his predecessors. More of a "happy-go-lucky" person, he acts wild and crazy, hits on girls and generally leads a very different lifestyle. He is a bit of a coward, as seen in episode one, he only unsheathes the nihongo|Kinsachi|キンサチ (the sword that allows him to transform into Lion-Maru) as a final act of desperation. He owns a modified Suzuki Burgman that he calls "Hikarimaru," the name of the Pegasus ridden by Lion-Maru in "Kaiketsu Lion-Maru".;nihongo|Jonosuke Tora|虎 錠之介|Tora Jōnosuke: Jonosuke is the reincarnation of the original nihongo|Tiger Joe|タイガージョー|Taigā Jō. Like his predecessor, he is still very much the "rival" type character of the series and acts cold towards other people, due to the fact that his family members were murdered when he was at a young age. He transforms with the mysterious sword nihongo|Ginsachi|ギンサチ. He remains very loyal to only Gousan, who took him in after the loss of his family, until Kashinkoji reveals the truth behind his tragic encounter.;nihongo|Saori|サオリ: Saori is a mizu shobai girl who works in Neo-Kabukichō. She is very similar to the original Saori. She helps the new Lion-Maru.;nihongo|Kosu K|コスK|Kosu Kei: Kosu K is a 14 year old girl, and Saori's younger sister. Her real name is Kaori. She is the counterpart to nihongo|Kosuke|小助 from the original series. In the original series, Kosuke was the 8 year old brother of Saori.;nihongo|Kashinkoji|果心居士: Kashinkoji is an old homeless man who gives Shishimaru the Kinsachi, the sword that allows him to transform into Lion-Maru. He is very knowledgeable about how the Lion-Maru powers work. He and Gousan seem to have known each other from long ago.;nihongo|Junior|ジュニア|Junia: Junior is the Junior CEO of the Gousan Enterprises, to which Shishimaru owes money. His real name is never known. He is the son of Gousan and calls him "Papa". He is also a hardcore cosplayer who makes his costumes by hand himself, in a bid to focus his father's attention on him instead of on the Kinsachi and Ginsachi users.;nihongo|Gousan|豪山|Gōsan: Gousan is the boss of Gousan Enterprises. He creates the Skull Eyes, red contact lenses with strange powers. He seems to know a lot about Kinsachi and Ginsachi, and desires to gain possession of the mysterious swords.;nihongo|Master|マスター|Masutā: He is a master of Snack Z.;nihongo|Yuri|ユリ|Yuri: She was Jonosuke's coworker.;nihongo|Makage (Kagemaru)/Shishitora|真影(影丸)/シシトラ: He is hired by Gousan Enterprises to attack Shishimaru and Jonosuke, and steal both Kinsachi and Ginsachi. During the process, when the other two attempt to retrieve the swords, Makage transforms into nihongo|Lion-Tiger|ライオンタイガー|Raiontaigā by unsheathing both Kinsachi and Ginsachi at the same time.
