|Infant Demon Drop|
Infant Demon Drop (童鬼 ドロップ Dōki Doroppu?, 2-22) / Dragon Dark King Salamandes (龍冥王 サラマンデス Ryūmeiō Saramandesu?, 26-43, 49-50): The youngest, formerly an infant named Drop at the start of the series. Demon of Fire Calamity. Dragon blood runs through his veins. Being just an infant, he had to be cared for by Spell-Master Pierre, and would only say "Drop", not being able to speak. Despite this, his high sorcery and fire abilities let him participate among his older siblings.
Upon Dark King Zylpheeza's death, he received the Dark King Star and used energy that was transferred from Zylpheeza. Drop underwent a maturation inside a cocoon. During that time, his soul took on the form of a human boy with pyrokinetic powers, who Matsuri Tatsumi befriended. After the period of maturation, Drop had become Dragon Prince Salamandes. Using the Dark King Star on his chest, Salamandes can create the "Saima Zone" in which the solar light is completely cut-off, allowing the Saima beasts to boost ten times their power. Later on, after the GoGo-V used the Victory Mars to stop the minus-energy asteroid that Grand Witch Grandiene sent, he started to fall out of favor with her. But after the destruction of the Infinity Card, Salamandes completely fell out of favor because he allowed a valuable weapon to be destroyed. He attempted to lure the GoGo-V to Hell in order to regain favor with his mother, but Grandiene trapped all of them there.
Ghost King Salamandes
With some help from Pierre, Salamandes killed all the hell-bound monsters and absorbed them to become Ghost King Salamandes (Yūmaō Saramandesu?, 43). The GoGo-V had a difficult time against him, since Salamandes was now able to transform human souls into energy powering him up through the "Saima Tree", which Pierre had grown at an orphanage. When the long lost mother of one of the orphaned children that the GoGo-V had befriended arrived, her tears had weakened the Saima Tree's power. Without the soul energy, the GoGoV were able to use the Max Victory Robo and the Victory Mars to kill him and only his Dark King Star remained.
Destruction God Salamandes Dragon
In the finale, Pierre is able to convince Grandiene to use Salamandes's Star to resurrect him, which she did. He was revived, alongside Zylpheeza, who was now under Grandiene's control. Luckily, Shou Tatsumi and Nagare Tatsumi were able to convince Zylpheeza that Salamandes was his younger brother Drop, forcing Salamandes to kill him, only to be killed by Shou and Nagare. But in the end Grandiene revived him as a complete puppet under her control in a dragon-like form, Destruction God Salamandes Dragon (Hakaishin Saramandesu Doragon?, 49-50), but was destroyed for good by the Max Victory Robo Sigma Project.
