to:

* MultiArmedAndDangerous
MultiArmedAndDangerous: Her "ASURA-6" is a back-mounted device that gives her ''six'' limbs with beam katana extensions, one of which is long enough to act as a tail to lift her off the ground.
* RedEyesTakeWarningRedEyesTakeWarning: Is dangerous enough to be the Rank 2 assassin, and has red eyes.



* SymbolMotifClothing: The most interesting thing about Alice is rather her weapon, which is named the Asura-6. While considered cool and mystifying in video games and popular culture, Ashuras in reality, and to the Hindu and Buddhist culture they belong to, are semi divine beings that rank above humans in power, but whose lives and rankings in life are considered even worse than man's own world itself, as they are engulfed in wrath and anger, indulge in materialistic pleasures and vices, and never see any resolution or peace within their own world. Because of this, they desire and seek enlightenment to transcend to become Devas or even remove themselves from Samsara altogether. Considering her path she took in life, the rankings to ascend upon, her own weathered and weary perspectives in the world she dived into, the quest for death, and how Silvia even mentions how the contestants in Santa Destroy are nothing more than demons in the visages of men, Alice appears to be a beautiful ashura who wants out of the world of glorified bloodshed and killing which she once saw as a means to use to ascend to higher calling.

* AffectionateParody: He seems to be an amalgam of various ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' protagonists (oversized sword that looks like Cloud's Buster Sword, ridiculously spiky hair, tattoos, etc).
