Martian Kingdom special forces officer (and Queen Limeira's personal bodyguard at that) who crossed the ways with Alita several times in the past, until finally becoming her ally in the Z.O.T.T. finals. While no slouch in unarmed combat, she's not nearly close to the insane feats of the likes of Alita and Zekka, and really shines with [[TheGunslinger everything that shoots]].

* BadassTransplant: He lost his right arm after fighting Elf and Zwölf's mono-molecular wire. It was replaced with a [[{{BFG}} Solenoid Quench gun]], which was improved on when he obtained his first Fizziroy body.

* TheNapoleon: It is implied that he didn't like being a "shorty" in his TUNED body, the Doll body as temporary replacement didn't made that better.
** Which is ironic given that Sechs backup body is even smaller.

* ARealManIsAKiller: Sechs seem to think that a true warrior must be male, hence the body switch, though the real reason Sechs switched bodies was just because the Fizziroy body was a lot more powerful than the TUNED body. He says later in the ZOTT finals that he wants to be recognized as a true warrior not just because of the new body.



* ScarsAreForever: Despite being a robot, averted, since he keeps his eyepatch in all his bodies.

* ShoutOut: Whether or not its intentional, there are quite a few similarities between [[OnePiece Monkey D. Luffy]] and Sechs in terms of fighting style after Sechs obtains the Fizziroy body, notable examples: his body "feels like rubber" when hit, and he's able to use a long-range attack (that replaces his gun) that looks a lot like Luffy's Gomu Gomu no Rifle.

** Though Sechs already differed highly from the others, mostly in terms of mimic. This became now evident in chapter 113 in which Sechs already display her different mimic.



** Actually there is a difference. His original name "GR-6" has two components, the "GR" and the "6", which is likely pronounced "sechs" instead of "six" because of the use of German in series. When he created his name, Sechs eliminated the "GR" element, which labeled him as nothing but a mere replica.
* GenderBender: And a rarest of them. Remember, he started as a Alita's copy -- that is, female. But then he basically decided that he wants to be a man -- and couple of bodies down finally did.

A young girl appearing in the very first volume as newborn kid who lost her parents. Koyomi serves as a quasi timer for the series since her age represents the time that has passed since the series started. Growing up in the scrapyard and with her father losing his beloved bar with the Zapan incident, she developed a rather opportunistic and sarcastic personality. However she still has a honest heart and believes in a better future.

* DarkAndTroubledPast / FreudianExcuse: Right at birth, his mother abandoned him by flushing him through the toilets, and he lived in the Sewers for years feeding on rats and garbage. [[spoiler:People then partially burnt him, and he started decaying. He was found and saved by Desty Nova, who rebuild him with a customized body shaped after his deepest desires, resulting in what he looks like now.]]

* CameBackWrong: As in the only remained of his humanity being his rage, and with an ungodly powerful body.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: Zapan becomes [[spoiler: a horribly destructive monster pretty much entirely because of Alita. Zapan told Ido that he and the other hunter-warriors wanted no part in the hunt for Makaku for entirely understandable reasons: Makaku has already killed at least ten hunter-warriors thus far. He even delivers a ShutUpKirk speech to Ido for trying to convince them they're morally obligated to commit suicide-by-cannibal-robot-monster. Alita's response? [[WhatTheHellHero Dump Zapan's drink on him, insult everyone in the bar, and then brutally dispatch them all. It was nonlethal, sure...but after she beat them all into submission, she hurled them out of the bar and ''right at Makaku's feet'']].]] What's worse is that Alita is riding high with the Berserker body by this point. She can go toe-to-toe with Makaku even while the latter is sporting the arena champion's unbelievably powerful chassis. Zapan and company? Makaku kills three of them by stepping on their bodies, reaching down, and ''casually ripping their heads off between the fingers of one hand.''

* MesACrowd: Nova developed specialized airborne "stereotomy" nanomachines that, should he be incapacitated or killed, would create a clone of himself, complete with two brain chips and a face in his abdomen. He then modified those nanomachines to create a second decoy clone so that the primary clone could fully mature. This results in several copies of him existing: the original Nova, who was seemingly killed by Alita several times and fully killed by Jim Roscoe, Nova II, who was killed by Mibadi; Nova Pod, who was created with one of the original Nova's brain chips and a display screen; Super Nova, who was given Nova II's brain chips; and Nova X, who was cloned using stereotomy nanobots. [[spoiler:And that's not including the dozens of defective clones Nova X was using as test subjects.]]
