Ryoma Nagare (流竜馬 Nagare Ryōma) refers to one of several major characters across the continuity of Getter Robo, all of who play a key role as a founding member of the Getter Team, more often than not acting as de facto field leader, or as an aloof mentor to new generation members and teams.
Most incarnations of Ryoma depict him as the primary pilot of the Getter Machine Eagle, and head pilot of Getter 1. Brash, hot-blooded, and possessing a fierce disposition, Ryoma often draws the attention of Dr. Saotome due to his resilience and strength, and as a result is brought on board with the crew of the Saotome Institute to help pilot Getter Robo.
While at first maintaining a begrudging unwillingness to help, he eventually comes to terms with his new mission, and bonds with his new team mates, seeing them as a second family of sorts. Yet as he goes deeper and deeper, he discovers and comes to understand the will of the Getter itself.
As a well trained master of martial arts, Ryoma displays an almost superhuman level of strength and resistance, capable of taking hard blows from machines, deep scratches from Reptiloids, and removing knives impaled in his body by simply flexing his muscles. Complementing this durability is a monstrous level of strength and stamina, only further bolstered by his style of karate, a brutish and pragmatic style known as Nagare-ryu taught to him by his father in most continuities.
