!! The killer7
A group of multinational, multi-ethnic individuals who work together to combat the Heaven Smile threat. They are the SplitPersonality of their leader, Harman Smith, an old man in a wheelchair. You play as them throughout the game, each of them wielding a different kind of weapon to combat the Heaven Smile forces. Each of them are borderline unstable, and it's evident right from the first mission that they have some supernatural tinge to them that isn't explained until the end of the game.



* CarnivalOfKillers: One of the best examples of this trope, though while they are psychotic they seem to be able to get along with people well enough. [[spoiler: As well as the fact that they're technically one person.]]
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: The game seems to imply that Harman is physically projecting the persona when they take control- this is evidenced by the fact that Curtis Blackburn, who has a history with Dan, recognizes him, when he should be seeing an old man in a wheelchair. This is backed up by an AllThereInTheManual source calling this Multifae Personae Phenomenon. There's also the fact that even Dan, the most normal of the bunch, can shoot huge balls of energy out from his gun like it's nothing. Despite this, the game constantly calls them "persona" in the menus, and the manual says that Harman is in control, so it's ambiguous.
** [[spoiler: The ending of SMILE shows that Garcian is the lead persona and is the host body for the rest, and that it's more like the souls of the original killer7 are taking control of Garcian and substituting his body for theirs. His briefcase has all of the killer7 weaponry inside of it, showing that Garcian may have been imagining himself ''as'' the killer7.]]
* ProfessionalKiller: They fight back against both the Heaven Smiles and threats to national security. While the first mission is a routine extermination of Heaven Smile forces, the second is an assassination of a politician.



* DecoyProtagonist: [[spoiler:Garcian is the true protagonist, not Harman. Symbolically, his Handsome Man counterpart, Handsome Red, is one to Handsome Pink. [[{{Foreshadowing}} Guess who her killer7 counterpart is?]]]]

* UnorthodoxReload: The only killer7 member to avert this. Unfortunately, this also means that she has the slowest reload time (and if you reload while zoomed in, she fumbles with the clip, making it take even longer.)

* DeadPersonImpersonation: It's complicated but according to what is in his briefcase [[spoiler: He posed as all the other personas using their weapons.]]



* UseYourHead: He can smash rocks and bullets with his head.



* BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame: He sometimes decided to beat his opponent using the same skill said opponent was renowed for - for example, [[spoiler:Kevin, Kon, Coyote and Dan]]. Apparently this earned him the nickname "Ace of Aces".

* InformedAttribute: He is actually really cold in the game and has no problem with assassination. He even admits he feels no repulse at a dead body who is just cold roasted flesh in his eyes.

** NotSoStoic: [[spoiler:After the reveal that he's an amnesiac Emir, he begins visibly panicking and refuses to believe it's the truth. He's stunned into silence when he sees what's really in his briefcase: the weapons of his "teammates."]]

* SupportingProtagonist: For most of the game, he takes a back seat to the other personas, mostly only appearing in cutscenes or if you need to recover a dead Smith. [[spoiler:This changes in Chapter 5, specifically after the Black Smiles kill the other Smiths.]]
