Tetsuya Tsurugi is a character from Great Mazinger (1974) and is a major reoccurring character in The Knights of the Multiverse. The pilot of the Great Mazinger, later Mazin Emperor G, he still fights among the EDC to protect people from the forces of evil, unlike his other Super Robot pilots who act independently.
Tetsuya is an extremely skilled pilot with a strong ethic code, and is very confident in Great's abilities. Unlike his adoptive brother Koji, he's more calm and collected on the battlefield, and listens to instructions fully from his teammates before charging straight into a fight, though as much as he hates to admit it, he can be as cocky and hot-headed as he is in some instances. He also have lots of self-doubt, and will blame often himself for a failed mission. While he can act rather cold sometimes, he still cares greatly about his teammates' safety, especially Jun, mostly stemming from how he never knew his real family, and strives to protect them no matter the cost.
After defeating the Myceane Empire, Tetsuya spent the next several years fighting alongside the Mazinger Team defend their earth against new threats, even teaming up with the Getter Team on numerous occasions. He would also frequently aid Earth Defense Command in operations against invading forces or terrorist groups, but would always prefer to keep his business focused on his family at the Photon Labs.

Being Tetsuya's childhood friend, having met when both were orphaned at a young age, he and Jun share a strong bond. Though in the past he's been... less than supportive towards her feelings, the two have grown much closer over time, although he does still has some difficulty understanding her humor. She'll also be the one to pull Tetsuya out of his slums whenever he gets too in over his head or if he's just feeling down, and though he's not perfect at it, he's willing to do the same for her.
Tetsuya is Koji's adoptive brother. Though the two butt heads frequently due to each other's stubbornness, they still always have each other's backs in the toughest spots.
As fellow super robot pilots, Tetsuya respects Ryoma, Hayato and Michiru as brothers/sisters-in-arms, especially with Ryoma, who Tetsuya shares a friendly rivalry with.
