    What are the Super-God Masterforce human characters’ ethnicity or nationality and the Autobot Pretenders’ appearances? Here is a list. Correct me if I am wrong. Thanks

    Humans

    Shuta- Japanese

    Cab- Pacific Islander/ Philippines ( fictional Karin Island)

    Minerva- half French ( Her father is from Monte Porte and the ambassador to Japan. Is he Japanese? Where is Monte Porte located?)

    Ginrai- Japanese (living in America)

    Light Foot- English Canadian

    Road King- British

    Ranger- Canadian

    Cancer- Chinese

    Wilder- ? American

    Bullhorn- Mexican

    Mega- ?

    Clouder - ? American


    Autobot Pretenders in human form appearances


    Diver- Caucasian

    Lander- Caucasian

    Not sure about Mega and Giga, although my guess is that they might have been conceived of as East Euro/Russian. Masterforce came out right at the end of the Cold War, so it wouldn't surprise me if Japan took a page from U.S. fiction at the time.
