* JapanesePronouns: 'Boku.'



* JapanesePronouns: 'Ore.'

* JapanesePronouns: 'Watashi.'



* JapanesePronouns: 'Ore,' and 'ore-sama' on occasion (usually in his CatchPhrase, "ore-sama ride!").

* JapanesePronouns: Uses 'ore-sama', which ought to tell you [[SmugSnake what he's like.]]



* JapanesePronouns: Usually refers to himself using the coarse and informal "ore" but accidentally uses the boyish "boku" when he first copies Aichi's CatchPhrase.

!!Katsumi Morikawa
!!!Random Clans (but plenty of Grade 3s)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Morikawa_2662.jpg

--> [[MaliciousMisnaming MY NAME IS KATSUMI!]]

Aichi's classmate. He was introduced as a bully, but quickly became Aichi's friend over their shared love of Vanguard. Although he boasts of his incredible skills at Vanguard, he is completely obsessed with Grade 3 units and has no sense of deck balance, resulting in a very poor win-loss record. [[spoiler:When given a correctly-balanced deck, he is revealed to be an outstanding player]].

A childhood friend over of Kai. Miwa is far more personable and social than Kai, but tolerates his friend's standoffish nature due to their shared love bond of Vanguard. Although he boasts friendship. Because Kai is so antisocial, it often falls to Miwa to act as the first point of his incredible skills at Vanguard, he social contact or to explain Kai's true feelings. He is completely obsessed also a skilled Vanguard player, having sparred regularly with Grade 3 units Kai.

From the second season onwards, he gets a part-time job at Card Capital to fill in for Misaki

* ButtMonkey
* CripplingOverspecialization: Morikawa's obsession with Grade 3s means he constantly overloads his deck with them, causing him to lose every single time. To put this in context, the recommended number of Grade 3s in a deck is 7-9; Morikawa has ''over 25''.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Episode 51 proves that [[spoiler:with a well-balanced deck, he really IS a strong player!]]
** Episode 112 goes a step farther: [[spoiler:he is able to instantly master Kai's Kagero deck despite having ''never seen it before'', and uses an ingenious combination of Break Ride and Persona Blast to attack with his Vanguard ''three times'' in one turn]].
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Despite losing many times, he blames it on bad luck (alignment of the stars, bad omens, etc.). And he still gets Grade 3s for his deck.
* HotBlooded
* InstantExpert: Yes, really. While he's a terrible deck builder, Season 3 shows that[[spoiler: after being given Kai's deck, he is able to use it perfectly ''despite having never seen it before the match''.]]
* LimitedWardrobe: Summer outfit aside, Morikawa is always in his [[SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack school uniform]].
* MaliciousMisnaming: It's KATSUMI! Not Lose-umi!
* NonIndicativeName: "Katsu" means victory. Katsumi has never won a single fight.
** [[spoiler: But in Episode 51, he wins every fight he's in.]]
* PluckyComicRelief
* StalkerWithACrush: Towards Korrin.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Gives this off during Q4's first match at the Regionals when their opponents use snake-like Kagero units.
** Ironically he has one of those units in his deck.

!!Yuta Izaki

Morikawa's best friend. He acts as the straight man to Morikawa's antics, but comes off as TheGenericGuy in most other respects.

* CantCatchUp: [[spoiler:A flashback in the Link Joker arc shows that this has been bothering him with regards to Aichi. However, thanks to his fellow teammates, he was able to subvert this and [[TookALevelInBadass take a level in badass]].]]
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: His clan of choice, Tachikaze, is a group of android dinosaurs.
* TheGenericGuy
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Morikawa.
** It's to the point where at one point Kamui actually combines both Morikawa and Izaki's names to call Izaki: Morizaki.
