I love Japanese games, but I can't read it very well!
I usually use translations provided by Kirameki online and follow along,
and I have been fascinated by Captain Rainbow for quite a while, the artwork is very beautiful.

But one part that was never translated were the character bios, and I have always been curious what they said.
If anybody could assist, it would be most appreciated!

Here's the easiest one for you.

Little Mac
He's a world champion. Champion of what we don't know.
Maybe it's boxing. He wears gloves...

Thank you mdchachi.

Here are my attempts:

Birdo
Autonomous and sexy
Dynamite monster.
As a criminal confined to a police box,
Being detained put her in a Terrible mood
So, the body is a pink color but
The heart is a super iridescent color.

Tao

Medium-sized hybrid dog who Put on a collar
Looking at where you are, before whom She seems to have been hers With personality soon to anyone
Good as a dog or bad
Or, it is a place suffering from judgment.

Drake Redcrest

I cannot distinguish between justice and evil. I'm An outdated hero.
After purchasing a spaceship with a loan,
I came to Mimin Island,
But before I could make payment on my spaceship, It crashed.

Hikari

A shrine who shares a shrine.
Looking forward into the future with divination, a mysterious power.
Mimins are the spirit of the island,
I am well within her.

Notice that mdchachi-sam meant "He was a world champion", since it's written "He's a former world champion".

Birdo
Autonomous and sexy
Dynamite monster.
As a criminal confined to a police box,
Being detained put her in a Terrible mood
So, the body is a pink color but
The heart is a super iridescent color.
自称 means "self‐styled", not "autonomous".
ひどい is adjective to express the degree. She is a terribly moody person.

Tao

Medium-sized hybrid dog who Put on a collar
Looking at where you are, before whom She seems to have been hers With personality soon to anyone
Good as a dog or bad
Or, it is a place suffering from judgment.
見ると means "judging (from)".
以前は is an adverbial phrase "formerly".
You seem to misunderstand 誰か.
You missed なつく.
所 doesn't mean a place/location.
判断に苦しむ means "hard to judge".
犬としては良いのか悪いのか is the point of the judgement.

Drake Redcrest

I cannot distinguish between justice and evil. I'm An outdated hero.
After purchasing a spaceship with a loan,
I came to Mimin Island,
But before I could make payment on my spaceship, It crashed.
The sunbject is Drake Redcrest, i.e., "he".
正義と悪の区別がつかない modifies ヒーロー.

Hikari

A shrine who shares a shrine.
Looking forward into the future with divination, a mysterious power.
Mimins are the spirit of the island,
I am well within her.
みこ(=巫女) means "shrine maiden", not just "shrine".
あずかる means "to take care of~/be in charge of~/manage".
You missed 持っている.
など shows that 占いで未来を見通す is an example of ふしぎな力.
島の精霊である modifies ミミン.
The subject of なついている is ミミン.


You don't seem to understand a very basic fact that a line is not always a sentence, or rather, a sentence is written over two or three lines in most cases there.

You're right. I was translating each line as a sentance, and not where the sentence really ended. Noob error I guess. I will try again.
However, Tao's Bio still makes no sence when I translate it.

Birdo
A self‐styled and sexy Dynamite monster.
An accused criminal confined to a police box,
and being detained made her a terribly moody person.
The body is a pink color but the heart is a super iridescent color.

Drake Redcrest
An outdated hero that can not distinguish between justice and evil.
After purchasing a spaceship with a loan, he came to Mimin Island, but before he could make payment on his spaceship, it crashed.

Hikari
A shrine maiden who takes care of the shrine.
She has a mysterious power such as forecasting the future with fortune telling.
Mimin, the spirit of the island, is well known to her.

Mappo
A policeman who carries the order of Mimin Island all the while.
He Dreams of Private Eye clothes and he aims to be a detective,
he is struggling day by day on the island.
He has already purchased a trench coat!

Old Man

A middle-aged professional golfer with high fat / low moral appearance.
He intended on competing in the championship tournament, but fell into a slump just before.
He swears that he'll reclaim himself on Mimin Island.

Takamaru

A Masami samurai.
He came to Mimin island in order to gain swordsmanship popularity,
but there are rumors that swordsmanship is already extremely popular.

Tracy

A mysterious and beautiful woman with outstanding medicine preparation.
She came to Mimin Island to fulfill her dream of making tricks for men all over the world.
Chocolate snacks are her favorite.

Famicom Soldier

Soldiers who lived in war came to Mimin Island with the wish of winning the gold medal of the world volleyball tournament.
There are six soldiers in all on the island.

Lip

She is a flower fairy girl.
She came to Mimin Island to become a wonderful wizard.
She's trying to learn special magical training while suffering from hay fever!

Devil

He came from the depths of Hell!
A self-indulgent, great and wicked man of the future who feels no wrong!
Game Boy, Pizza and Metal are his primary sources of life.

Little Mac

He's a former world champion. Champion of what we don't know.
Maybe it's boxing. He does wear gloves...

Here is my attempt of Tao the dog;

A medium-sized, hybrid dog.
Judging by the collar she's wearing,
it seems to have been someone's dog before.
It is good or bad that a dog with personality has nobody,
or is it a place of suffering and judgment....

I have added my translations and the transcoded japanese to the comments in Google Photos for easier comparison.

You'd better not to ask too many things at once.

Birdo
A self‐styled and sexy Dynamite monster.
An accused criminal confined to a police box,
and being detained made her a terribly moody person.
The body is a pink color but the heart is a super iridescent color.
You missed 正体不明の.
It's not "and". 自称 "self‐styled" means that she calls herself "sexy dynamite monster".
You need to pay more attention to the periods. The period after 拘留される shows that 犯罪者として交番の独房に拘留される is a single sentence, and
it has nothing to do with the next sentence ひどい気分屋で~.
The subject of 拘留される is her, or more likely, all the subjects of the whole paragraph is her since it's explanations about her.

Without any knowledge of japanese, I transcoded the characters, somewhat translated the bios enough that they make sence to the game, all in 1 week.

For a ridiculously outdated videogame, I am satisfied.

Thank you for your help.
