[[caption-width-right:219:The Just]]

Through constant battles with their Hebijo rivals, the girls of Hanzō National Academy forged lifelong friendships - not only with each other as a team, but with their rivals as competitors and equals. Six months ago, the Hanzō girls scored a decisive victory, defeating the Hebijo Elites and driving them into hiding. Since then, peace has reigned at Hanzō National Academy, and the girls have devoted themselves to their training. But the times of peace have changed, as new threats and old are about to converge in a battle royale the likes of which the shinobi world has never seen.

* BadassCrew
* BerserkButton: Since they formed a bond with the Crimson Squad, they'll get really pissed if you insult any one of them.
* BigDamnHeroes: There have been some instances of this. The first one was there rescue and retrieval of Hibari from Hebijo. Another was Ikaruga and the others saving Asuka from Murakumo when she was about to kill her.
* CatchPhrase: "Let's dance!" and "I'll show you a dance cloaked in shadows!"

* PervertRevengeMode: Subverted. They throw wash bins at Hanzo for perving on them at the hot springs, but being the legendary ninja he is, he dodges every last one. He does back off when Asuka threatens to "tell grandma". This has happened three times already.
* TheProtagonist: They are the main characters of the series and generally get the most focus.

A second year student at Hanzo National Academy. Her grandfather Hanzō is renowned as a legendary shinobi, and is the academy’s namesake. Given her remarkable pedigree, she has a lot of hidden potential within her and bears a strong sense of justice.

No matter how hard she may try, though, she can never quite bring herself to look as intimidating as she wants to, likely due to her overall bright and positive personality. Over time, she’s become a source of immense moral support for her friends and fellow shinobi.

Her primary weapons are two wakizashis, and her Ninpo are based on toads, as well as having an affinity for Earth.

-> Measurements: B90, W57, H85 (35-22-33)
-> Hobby: Training
-> Favorite Food: Futomaki Rolls
-> Ninja Animal: Toad
-> Weapon: Dual Wakizashi "Green Willow, Red Blossom"/Enchanted Dual Wakizashi "Twin Swords - Universe"
-->[-VA: Creator/HitomiHarada (Japanese), Creator/FeleciaAngelle (English)-]
----
* AdaptationalWimp: In the games, Asuka is portrayed as a hot-blooded warrior with a constant drive to improve herself. In comparison to the anime, Asuka is a [[TheKlutz klutz]]. She also has a fear of frogs in the anime, which she doesn't have in the games (but she does get over it with a little help from Ikaruga).
* AnimalMotifs: Frogs (note that the rival school consists of ''[[AnimalJingoism Snake Girls]]''). Her ultimate ninpo in ''Shinovi Versus'' is to summon a giant frog that she can ride around on briefly.
* BadassAdorable
** ScarfOfAsskicking: Wears a red one on her default outfit.
* BrownEyes
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Not ''nearly'' as bad as the other girls, to the point where it's nearly nonexistent, but the intro of the anime shows she wasn't always happy with being forced to be a shinobi from a [[ChildSoldier VERY young age.]] And, while she loves her Grandpa, [[ParentalAbandonment her parents aren't anywhere to be seen either.]]
* DCupDistress: Worries that her breasts might be growing too big.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: The only ninja who runs on this more than the [[Manga/{{Naruto}} orange-clothed blondie himself]], Asuka will happily befriend literally anyone, good shinobi or bad shinobi. It's gotten to the point where Homura has realized Asuka doesn't care ''who'' she is friends with. Homura herself is a shining example of Asuka's methods, as she (whether she admits it or not) is Asuka's best friend and this friendship was forged through combat.
** Heck, Asuka herself doesn't need to win in order to apply this trope. Yumi in the Gessen route of ''Shinovi Versus'', who beat Asuka before the latter challenged to a quick rematch, straight out asks if they can be friends after the battle is over.
* DishingOutDirt: Asuka specializes in earth attacks in some of her ninja arts. This is especially evident in SK 2.
* DualWielding: Uses two wakizashis.
* FamilyHonor: Asuka's main struggle in the anime is [[WellDoneSonGuy living up to her family name]] (and more specifically, her grandfather's legacy). One interesting symptom is how the pressure caused her [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes to develop a fear of frogs]], which she hadn't really had any experience with until ninja school proper.
* FingerlessGloves
* ForGreatJustice: Being the only character without a DarkAndTroubledPast, Asuka's main reason for following the way of shinobi is to protect her friends, her family... basically everyone from the shadows. For her, there is nothing more noble than protecting this world without expecting any thanks in return.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Ikaruga utilizes this trait of hers to get her to overcome her fear of frogs in the anime.
* FriendlyEnemies: With Homura.
* GoodIsNotDumb: She seems to be GoodIsDumb at the start but shows herself to be fairly smart towards Homura.
* TheHero: Some adaptations assign her this role. In Burst she has the most overall missions aimed at her this playing this somewhat straight.
* HeroicResolve: toward her rivals.
* HideYourLesbians: given her strong feelings toward her rivals, her propension to rub herself on her female friends on official artworks, and the whole Yumi/Homura/Asuka affair in SV, it has been speculated that Asuka is a lesbian who haven't realized it yet (with training taking up the major part of her social life and all that).
** According to one mini story released to promote 'Burst' release, Asuka gave Katsuragi permission to grope her because she thought Katsuragi didn't find her attractive. This of course, was Katsuragi's plan all along.
* HotBlooded
* TheIdealist: Initially; it doesn't prevent her from taking fights very seriously, though.
* [[IdenticalGrandson Identical Granddaughter]]: [[spoiler: Asuna looks like a younger version of Jasmine, her grandmother.]]
* IfItsYouItsOkay: [[spoiler: [[ShipperOnDeck Yumi]]]] told her that Homura was in love with her, (Something that [[spoiler: Yumi]] concluded on her own) and Asuka [[ShipTease didn't seem to mind one bit.]]
* InnocentInnuendo: This little quote from ''Shinovi Versus''.
** ''I've learned a new trick! I can bite two sushi rolls at the same time! They're a little too big for my mouth, though. I can't swallow them both at once...''
* InkSuitActor: She looks like a younger and more bustier version of her voice actress.
* InSeriesNickname: Homura calls her "Jugs" in the English version of ''Burst''. HypocriticalHumor at its finest, since Homura is only about an inch smaller.
* ImageSong: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCIxBNKgJ44 Futomaki Ninja]] in ''Bon Appétit''.
* KiteRiding: Briefly demonstrated it in the anime. The "Hipster" DLC for ''Deep Crimson'' has her using one as her way of transportation.
* LaserBlade: As [[SuperMode Ultimate Asuka]], her Dual Wakizashi emits a green aura around the blades that increases their range and power.
* TheLeader
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-66HUnt51Oc&list=UUZe8fFTOngzT1odz5lLEumg In the Name of Grandfather]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBtCsieRCmM&list=UUZe8fFTOngzT1odz5lLEumg Successor of Hanzo]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-s3_EUh-AI&list=UUZe8fFTOngzT1odz5lLEumg For the Sake of Justice]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyskqW4jPEY The Duty of Good]]
* LightningBruiser / JackOfAllTrades: She's a balanced fighter but also boosts good attack and speed and is probably the best overall character to use in combat.
** The Jack Of All Trades part is actually a significant part of her character -- she realizes that everyone else at Hanzo is better than her at ''something'', and constantly trains to try to bridge the gap.
* LimitBreak:
** Dual Slash
** Hanzō Style: Full Boom
** Hanzō Style: Blooming Dance (''Deep Crimson'')
** Toad Summon (''Shinovi Versus'')
** Deep Shadow (''Estival Versus'')
** Hanzō Style: Storm Kick (Aerial, ''Burst'')
** Hanzō Style: Blooming Slash (Aerial, ''Deep Crimson'')
** Flying Wild Dance (With Homura, ''Deep Crimson'')
** Yell Gun (With Daidōji, ''Deep Crimson'')
** Deep Crimson (With Crimson Homura, ''Deep Crimson'')
* NotSoDifferent: Homura and her both have similar upbringings, but the key difference is that [[spoiler:Homura was kicked out of her home for defending herself. Had Asuka been in a similar situation, she likely could of ended up like Homura.]]
* NotAfraidToDie: Asuka explicitely state during Hebi's arc that ever since she has receveid her name as a ninja (''Asuka'' and all the other girls' names are code-names), she doesn't fear death anymore. Life and death are two sides of one coin, to live is to be prepared to die.
* SecondYearProtagonist
* ScarfOfAsskicking
* ShipTease: As mentioned above in IfItsYouItsOkay, Asuka has this with [[LesYay Homura]].
* SuperMode: She becomes "Ultimate Asuka"; it replaces her frog summon in '"Estival Versus'' as her ultimate ninpo while being own character like Crimson Homura in ''Deep Crimson''.
** As of EV, it's been subject to some mild UniquenessDecay. With Yumi and Miyabi also getting Super Modes, Asuka's SlipknotPonytail is starting to look less impressive in the face of three different examples of PowerDyesYourHair.
* TomboyishPonytail
* WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Frogs]]: In the anime she is ''deathly'' afraid of frogs. Unfortunately for her, her family's summon animal is the frog. Fortunately for her, Ikaruga devises a way for her to overcome it.
* ZettaiRyouiki

!Ikaruga

-->''If I can't pass the real test, my walk along the Path of the Shinobi ends. Everything I have established will have been wasted.''

[[caption-width-right:262: Rest assured. You ''will'' be disciplined.]]

A third-year student at Hanzo National Academy, she is the class president and the successor to the Houou family organisation’s shinobi line. However, she is not their biological heir, which has led to numerous feuds with her adoptive brother over who should rightfully bear the family’s legacy.

She was given special classes from a very young age and can perform tea ceremonies and cook fine Japanese cuisine, but when creating new recipes on the fly, her meals are… interesting, to say the least. Though typically gentle, thoughtful and kind, she is also a very proud person; when her emotions flare, no one can lay a hand on her.

Ikaruga's primary weapon is the ''Hien''[[note]]Flying/Rising Swallow[[/note]], a family heirloom passed down to her by her father. Her Ninpo is centered around phoenixes, and has an affinity for the Fire element because of this.

-> Date of Birth: 7th of July
-> Age: 18
-> Blood Type: A
-> Height: 168 cm (5'6")
-> Measurements: B93, W59, H90 (36-22-33)
-> Hobby: Reading
-> Favorite Food: ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaiseki Kaiseki]]''; Japanese tea.
-> Ninja Animal: Phoenix
-> Weapon: Nodachi "Hien"
-->[-VA: Creator/AsamiImai (Japanese), Creator/AlexisTipton (English)-]
----
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: She is tall, has very long black hair and is the most composed member of the class.
* AncestralWeapon: Her sword, "Hien".
* AnimalMotifs: ThePhoenix.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She's one for maintaining decency, even to her enemies. However, ''never'' insult her honor or her effort to maintain it.
* {{BFS}}: Her Nodachi, which gives her a good long range on her attacks.
* BizarreTasteInFood: Ikaruga enjoys eating ''hornet larvae boiled in soy sauce''. Apparently her father enjoyed them, so she had them many times in her childhood.
* ClassRepresentative: She's a stickler for the rules. This puts her into some clash with Yagyū
* TheComicallySerious: Her song?
* CoolBigSis: Fills this role in age and the responsible emotional-maturity that Katsuragi ''completely'' lacks.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:She was originally from a no-name, poor ninja family. She was adopted in a heritaged family to fill the role of the heir instead of the family's good-for-nothing son, and she's currently in dispute with her [[AxCrazy (completely insane)]] big brother over the inheritance of the clan.]]
* DashAttack / VideogameDashing
* DeathOfAThousandCuts
* {{Expy}}: Her fighting style resembles like the one used by [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Jin Kisaragi]]. Also overlaps with ActorAllusion, as Jin is nicknamed "The Hero of ''Ikaruga''" and he has a cousin (Tsubaki Yayoi) who is voiced by AsamiImai. Even she use an attack that resembles Jin's [[SpamAttack Reito]] and his ice attacks, except she use fire instead here (which is the opposite element of Jin's ice powers).
** Take note as well that she also shares her backstory with Jin (though Jin has it much worse), being adopted by a prestigious family (also becoming heir/inheritor to these families later on) and being class presidents/representatives in their respective schools. However, both of them have issues with jealous siblings from these families over the inheritance - with Jin being despised by his many siblings and Ikaruga being despised by her brother. Not to mention both of their [[AncestralWeapon Ancestral Weapons]] negate each other's elements.
* FamilyHonor: Ikaruga was specifically adopted into a family that would not abide its AncestralWeapon ''Hien'' being inherited by its talentless son, Murasame. According to the anime, there's no love in this arrangement; Ikaruga is simply there to protect the family from shame.
* FlamingSword: Ikaruga absorbs her phoenix into ''Hien'' using the Superb Phoenix Flash.
* FragileSpeedster: She has low defense, but is extremely damaging with attacks that cover a wide area and can do some damage quickly... ''very quickly''.
* GlassCannon: She has low defense, but is extremely damaging with attacks that cover a wide area
* HimeCut: Sports the traditional hairstyle befitting of a YamatoNadeshiko, an {{Ojou}} and a LadyOfWar with {{samurai}} tendencies.
* IaijutsuPractitioner
* ImplausibleFencingPowers: While using the Hien Phoenix Dance, Ikaruga leaps into the air, grips Hien between her feet and descends down upon her target, drilling her blade into them as she slides along the ground, causing massive damage. How this is even ''possible'' is a wonder in itself.
* InnocentInnuendo: From ''Shinovi Versus''.
** ''Length is a factor, of course, but what matters most is durability. One round is never enough. It takes ten times in a row to satisfy me. Of course, they usually break long before then, and the worst ones give you splinters. Good training swords are really hard to come by.''
* {{Keigo}}
* KillItWithFire: Outright uses the Phoenix Blaze Flash to send a literally flaming phoenix towards her opponent.
* LadyOfWar
* {{Leitmotif}}:
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVF97smNxg0&list=UUZe8fFTOngzT1odz5lLEumg Hien Awakens]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTqA5K9RtvY&list=UUZe8fFTOngzT1odz5lLEumg Hien's Caliber]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiogxteGgS4&list=UUZe8fFTOngzT1odz5lLEumg Like A Beautiful Flower]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTtmrF1LQ3k To Be the Wielder of Hien]]
* LethalChef: [[CordonBleughChef Averted.]] While the food Ikaruga makes is so hideous one of the manga has to ''pixelate it'', it actually tastes pretty good.
* LimitBreak:
** Hien Housen: Mode One
** Oukaensen
** Zekka Hoosen (''Shinovi Versus'')
** Ouka Ryoudan (''Deep Crimson'', ''Estival Versus'')
** Phoenix Kick (Aerial, ''Burst'')
** Hien Housen: Mode Air (Aerial, ''Deep Crimson'')
** Flying Guillotine (With Yomi, ''Deep Crimson'')
** Cool Your Head (With Katsuragi, ''Deep Crimson'')
** The Best Combination (With Murasame, ''Deep Crimson'')
* MinidressOfPower
* {{Ojou}}: Ikaruga is the descendant of a prestigious Ninja clan. [[spoiler:Just not directly, however, Ikaruga does appear to be a distant cousin of her adoptive father.]]
* PlayingWithFire: Ikaruga incorporates the element of Fire into her ninpo.
* PrinciplesZealot: She's really big on rules and discipline.
* ProperTightsWithASkirt: In her ninja outfit.
* RapunzelHair: She has long, straight, black hair flowing down to her lower thighs.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Katsuragi and Yomi's red oni.
* {{Samurai}}: She's closer to this than ninja.
* SidekickExMachina: Plays this to Murasame if you pair them up. She allows him to take the lead to feel better about himself while doing almost all of the work for him from the shadows.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Cool, composed and mature, but still a really kind and gentle girl.
* TeamMom: Doubly so as she's the only girl of adult age in her ''gumi'' (obviously, Katsuragi in SV doesn't count)
* {{Toku}}: Ikaruga performs entertainment like these under the name of ''KP Kamen'' (KP standing for "Kami no ke", hair, and "Pattsun", uniformly straight cut bangs). In the localizations, it's "BC Mask", standing for "Black hair with cut straight bangs".
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Her more refined and feminine nature makes her the girly girl to Katsuragi's tomboy.
* WeaponOfChoice: She single-handedly uses a ''Nōdachi''.
* YamatoNadeshiko: After reading this far down the list you should know why: a formal and polite lady who wields a nodachi styles her hair in a HimeCut.

A third-year student at Hanzo National Academy. She’s over-the-top and easily moved to tears, yet she has an older sister-like demeanour that’s thoroughly endeared her to the other members of her class.

There are some ways she might be too over-the-top to her classmates, however, as she tends to be very hands-on in an inappropriate manner. And while these "dirty old man" tendencies of hers can be a little embarrassing for her and anyone else around her, she also constantly strives to become stronger than her peers and spares no effort to that end. Sometimes, she becomes so dedicated to this cause that it even makes her come across as a bit stoic…

Katsuragi is particularly skilled in acrobatic and weaponless combat, particularly specialising in kicks augmented by her metal boots. Her Ninpo centers around the Chinese Dragon, and she has an affinity for Wind-element techniques.

** TornadoMove: The Tornado Spindle.
** ThisIsADrill: Dead Screw Dragon.
* BoobsOfSteel: Has the largest bosoms of the Hanzō girls, and her fighting style focuses the most on raw physical strength.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Her perverted behavior can hide the fact that she's actually a very powerful shinobi.
* DanceBattler: Some her moves incorporate break dancing.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:She is fighting to [[ToBeAMaster prove herself the strongest]] and re-establish the lost honor of her family, after her parents refused to kill Kurokage. The catch is that [[LastOfHerKind she hasn't seen them for years and they could perfectly have been dead for all this time]].]]
** [[spoiler:It turns out that her parents are alive, but must fight to save them in the Battle Royale.]]
** [[spoiler:It gets even worse as Katsuragi either has to kill Yozakura to free her parents or they will die if she doesn't. She makes the decision of sacrificing her parents to keep Yozakura alive because she knows that her parents wouldn't want her to make that choice.]]
* DifficultButAwesome: Being the [[MightyGlacier type of character she is]], she controls rather stiffly compared to the other Hanzō girls. Not only that, it's trickier to pull a long chain of combos most of the time. However, if one were to get the hang of Kat's FoeTossingCharge and timing to keep a steady combo, she can be very deadly.
* DontThinkFeel: This is her ''excuse'' for entering the cooking tournament in ''Bon Appetit''.
* DragonsUpTheYinYang: Her ninja animal is the dragon after all.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Well, it's not as if Asuka put up a lot of resistance toward Katsu-nee's attentions.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning[=/=]SpinAttack: Several of Katsuragi's attacks incorporating spinning or drilling motions into them. While the most notable is the Tornado Spindle, one of the most impressive is the Dead Screw Dragon , which involves channeling an energy dragon around her body and spinning while drilling into her target.
* {{Expy}}: A blonde-haired, hotblooded shinobi who loves ramen, is rather perverted, ''rarely thinks about her actions before she does it'', [[spoiler:lost both of her parents at an early age]], and utilises the Wind element in their techniques? Sounds quite a lot like [[Manga/{{Naruto}} another hot-blooded, blonde ninja from another series]].
* ExtremityExtremist: Almost all of her attacks are kick based.
* FingerPokeOfDoom: Katsuragi's Strike Cannon flicks her middle fingers with enough force to create ''RazorWind''.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: In the anime, she slaps Ikaruga when she starts to panic about how she can't undo the Shinobi Kekkai barrier.
* GoldenSuperMode: While everyone has this in ''Burst'', as the use of Life or Death mode (Frantic in localizations) gives the girls a surging golden aura, Katsuragi, with her hotblooded nature and love of fighting, as well as golden hair and green eyes, deserves her own personal mention. Why? ''She looks and fights like a Super Saiyan.''
* HairDecorations
* HypocriticalHumor: Doesn't like being groped. She also doesn't like seeing people sexually harass others, despite doing it ''all the time''.
-->'''Katsuragi:''' I'm always up for copping a good feel, but I can't stand seeing sexual harassment. I think you need an ass-kicking, self-defense style!
* HotBlooded: She brings skinship to a whole new level: if someone won't open their heart to her the social way, then it's duel time.
* IdiotHero: Subtlety is not her forte.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons
* InSeriesNickname: Katsu-nee (Kat in the English localization), but only by Asuka.
* JapanesePronouns: Uses "atai", of all things. It typically indicates straightforwardness (re: [[{{VideoGame/Touhou}} Cirno]]).
* KickChick: Equips greaves by her feet.

** Dead Screw Dragon
** Strike Cannon (Aerial, ''Burst'')
** Bloody Dragon (Aerial, ''Deep Crimson'')
** Hikage Strike (With Hikage, ''Deep Crimson'')
** Cool Your Head (With Ikaruga, ''Deep Crimson'')
* MagicSkirt: Obviously not seen anywhere, but here's a variation; try a Magic ''Shirt''. Despite it just being a normal unbuttoned shirt, [[NippleAndDimed it never reveals her nipples]]. You could swear the damn thing's glued on.
** When it's destroyed, she has a bizarre breast-harness under it that shouldn't be able to stay on without the aid of either magic or lots of body tape. To make things even more magic, the thing's very existence contradicts her insistence that she doesn't wear anything under her uniform.
* MightyGlacier: High attack but a bit slow.
* NotQuiteFlight: In ''Shinovi Versus'', Katsuragi is one of the few characters capable of limited gliding. While unexplained in anyone else, for Katsuragi, her gliding may actually stem from her Wind abilities.
* PantyShot: The source of almost all of them in the anime. [[SchoolgirlLesbians She doesn't mind.]]
* RapunzelHair: She has blond hair that flows all the way down to her waist.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Ikaruga and Hikage's blue oni.
* {{Schoolgirl Lesbian|s}}: When someone transfers to the ninja class, the first thing she looks up is the size of the newbie's boobs.
** She outright says that she prefers flirting with girls to romance with guys.
* SignatureLaugh: ''EEE SHI SHI SHI SHI''
* SkinshipGrope: Accepted as a [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight daily occurence]] in Hanzo. The only one who minds is Yagyū, and [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlFriend only when]] [[BigSisterInstinct she does it to Hibari]].
* {{Stripperiffic}}: For some reason, she rarely buttons her shirt. [[spoiler:This has to do with the fact that Ikaruga slashed open those buttons when she first opened to her. Being unbuttoned is a symbol of relationship.]]
* ThouShaltNotKill: in ''Shinovi Versus'', she is is really torn when Yozakura refuses to yield after their fight, claiming she will continue fighting till Katsuragi kills her; the catch is Katsuragi has to win her fight to save her parents. She regains her composure when Hikage tell her she much prefers the Katsuragi who have mindless fun when fighting.
* {{Tomboy}}: She's described as this, but it's more like she's a perverted boy born into a feminine-looking girl's body.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Her hotblooded and brash attitude makes her the tomboy to Ikaruga's girly girl.
* TrickedOutShoes: Not only are her greaves razor-sharp, they can also pull out what are essentially wind spurs.
* {{Underboobs}}: featured gloriously in episode 4 of the anime adaptation.
* VocalDissonance: Her voice is fairly deep for a girl whose supposed to be 18.
** It actually tends to vary, her deeper voice only seems to come out when she's feeling particularly hot-blooded or shocked
* WeaponOfChoice: Metal boots.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Her moves are either kickboxing, or this. Her [[PhantomZone Shinobi Barrier]] is a ''wrestling ring''.

A first-year student at Hanzo National Academy. She’s only just begun her training this year, yet she knows that the shinobi world is ruthless and is fully prepared to accept that way of life. This resolution is born from the considerable power she wields, but it’s approval she seeks above all else; she exists to be acknowledged by her fellow shinobi class members.

Although she’s rather taciturn most days, her need for acceptance occasionally causes her to come across as lonely. Being the same age as Hibari, the two of them have formed something of a sisterly bond, making Hibari one of the few people to whom she’ll willingly open up to.

Her primary weapon is the bladed oilpaper umbrella she always carries on her. Her Ninpo is centered around squids, and she has an affinity for the Rain-element.

* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: Yagyū will ''always'' save Hibari, no matter how much hell she has to go through to do it.
-->'''Yagyū:''' I don't mind you leaning on me. Anytime you call... I-I'll come running...
* BerserkButton: Do '''NOT''', in any way, harm Hibari. Doing so is a certified death wish. Even jokingly, as Katsuragi found out in an early scene in SV. Apparently, Yagyū is the only one who can stop Katsu-nee's "friendly" gropings.
* TheBerserker: Especially if Hibari is in danger.
* BigSisterInstinct: The reason she's so protective of Hibari. [[spoiler:Yagyu had a little sister who died in a car accident. Hibari happens to look identical to her so Yagyu became extremely attached to her and swore to protect her.]]
* CatchPhrase: ''Anshin shiro: Hibari wa Ore ga mamoru. ("Fear not: I will protect you, Hibari.")''
* ChildProdigy: She's very young and her shinobi potential is massive. And she has the attitude to match.
* CombatTentacles: Some of her normal attacks has her using a squid tentacle, and she can summon one to do the same.
* CovertPervert: Where she is usually really stoic, she can have some perverted fantasies about Hibari, usually accompanying with her nose bleeding.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:She used to have a little sister named Nozomi, who died in a car accident years ago. The deceased sister [[ReplacementGoldfish looked exactly like Hibari]].]]
* DeclarationOfProtection: Frequently, toward Hibari.
* EvilEye: Yagyu's eyepatch conceals her right eye. Shiki refers to this as the 'Devil's Eye', a ninja art that seals a Secret Ninja Art into the user's eye, and is repressed with an eyepatch. When the eyepatch is removed, it activates Yagyu's Ultimate Secret Ninja art, causing her eyes to glow a deep crimson an expel cuttlefish tentacles.
* EyepatchOfPower: [[spoiler:She wears it to remind her of her dead sister.]]
* FlyingSeafoodSpecial: In the [[ShootEmUp Hipster DLC]] for ''Deep Crimson'', her form of transportation is to fly on top of her squid summon.
* GirlishPigtails
* GlassCannon: Her defense is very low but her overall attack power is pretty good and her secret arts do a lot of damage and are perfect for fighting multiple enemies. As compared to Ikaruga, she's a bit tougher, but also a bit less damaging -- but has useful projectile attacks that Ikaruga lacks.
* HatesBeingAlone: [[spoiler:After Hibari transferred to Hebijo to get back the Super Secret Ninja Scroll, Yagyū vowed to get her back, stating she absolutely cannot be without Hibari. Yagyū is not only afraid of losing Hibari, in whom she sees her younger sister who died, but afraid of winding up alone again.]]

* LovingAShadow: [[spoiler:She became attached to Hibari because she looks exactly like her deceased little sister.]]
* MysticalWhiteHair: Her white hair hints at her mysterious personality.
* NoSenseOfHumor: She is probably the most serious about what it means to be a ninja among the Hanzō students.
* OreOnna: Uses ''exclusively'' masculine Japanese vocabulary in her normal speech, up to and including the aggressive-masculine "Ore" to refer to herself; this is considered even LESS normal and acceptable than girls using the gentle-masculine form "boku" in Japanese society.
* ParasolOfPain: Which also [[SwordCane hides a sword]], at least in anime. In the games, the ribs of the umbrella sprout out blades instead.
* TheQuietOne: Rarely say anything to anyone, except Hibari.
* RapunzelHair: Even with her GirlishPigtails, her hair still reaches way below her knees.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: With her Ultimate Secret Ninja Art; the eye that is concealed by the eyepatch, specifically.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Hibari and Mirai's red.
* ReiAyanamiExpy: White hair? Check. Red eye(s)? Check. Pale skin? Check. Wears an eyepatch? Check. Stoic and quiet demeanor? Check.
* SeriousBusiness: Even ''card games'' are serious business to Yagyū if Hibari is involved.
-->'''Yagyū:''' -directed at the Joker card which caused her to lose- Unforgivable. This is your fault, you damned jester...
* TheStoic: She's naturally very calm -- sometimes too calm, as she never revealed getting badly injured at one point.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Stoic and reserved, but very caring and protective toward Hibari.
* TragicKeepsake: A variant. Where her eyepatch didn't belong to any one, she uses [[spoiler:one of her dead sister's hair ribbons]] to tie it.
* WeaponOfChoice: [[ParasolOfPain Her umbrella]]. The trailer shows her performing ''Daikaruga''[[note]]Traditional Japanese "juggling" involving keeping a ball balanced on a spinning umbrella without letting it get thrown away by the spin.[[/note]] with a ''delivery truck''.

A first-year student at Hanzo National Academy. Although she was born into a long line of prestigious shinobi, she feels as if her skills are somewhat lacking. Espionage is her strongest suit, but she’s still a bit immature (like most blooming adults are wont to be) and tends to be the troublemaker in her shinobi class.

Still, she works hard in everything she does and is beloved by her entire class due to her single-minded attitude and entirely genuine nature.

With a deceptive fighting style, ever shifting in appearance, her Ninpo centers around rabbits, including Ninto. Hibari's elemental affinity is that of Lightning.

----
* AssKicksYou: A few of her attacks utilize her butt. She even has a combination attack [[spoiler:with Haruka that basically involves both of them smashing their asses together.]]
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Several of her techniques.
* BadassAdorable: She's surprisingly powerful compared to her looks.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Completely subverted in ''Bon appetit'' when she ends up with so many sweets that she and Yomi can literally swim around in them and her ending concludes with the two of them still happily eating long after Hanzo had eaten himself into a coma.[[note]]Whether or not she actually made that many herself or she accidentally wished for that many as the prize for winning the contest isn't elbaorated on but the end result is the same.[[/note]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Sure Hibari is your average CuteClumsyGirl but if there's one thing to take into consideration, '''DO NOT SAY''' in front of her that "you own her"! Otherwise you'd be on the receiving end of her rage fit and will fight very seriously, as Yagyū and Haruka learned the hard way.
* BigEater: A bit of a glutton despite her small frame.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:By the BigBad in the Hebijo story]].
* BreakTheCutie: In spades in the second and third chapter of the Hanzo story. [[spoiler: She actually ends up asking Haruka to turn her into a doll with her final screw up.]] She gets better, though.

* CutenessProximity: She loves cute things. It probably influenced her Ninpo as well.
* TheChick
* CuteClumsyGirl
* CuteLittleFangs: In the manga.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: ''Shinovi Versus'' reveals that not even her life was as peachy as you may think: [[spoiler:She never wanted to become a shinobi. However, because she was the only one of her brothers and sisters to receive [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique "Kagan"]], she was made to pursue the shinobi path, not helped by the fact that no one got ever got mad at her and kept on helping her with a smile, no matter how much she screwed up]].
* DifficultButAwesome: She's extremely weird to play as and a bit silly, as well as a bit hard to get used to at first, but over time she'll become extremely powerful.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: She has a pretty peculiar iris, shaped like a pink flowery cross. Her eyes pattern is the sign of a [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique family technique]] which allow her to manipulate people's minds; she has yet to master it, though.
* {{Expy}}: She's basically [[Anime/QueensBlade Cute]] from the ''Spiral Chaos'' games, except having a bigger rack, compared with the [[ACupAngst original]].
* FlyingOnACloud: She rides on [[KillerRabbit Ninto's]] storm cloud in some of her Ninpos.
* GeniusDitz: Her skills need improvement combat wise, but when it comes to espionage, she has this area down pat.
* GenkiGirl: Despite constantly doing badly, she rarely feels down for long.
* GirlishPigtails
* GirlyBruiser
* GoombaStomp: One of her weak aerial attacks in Burst. Requires precision, but it's well worth it.

* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Subverted.]] See ReverseMole below.]]
* HairDecorations: Her black ribbons.
* TheHeart: Pleaded to her teammates to not defeat the Hebi girls [[spoiler:because they have a killswitch in them]].
* HypnoticEyes: The Kagan's primary ability is the ability to control both people and objects, allowing Hibari to perform a kind of ninja puppetry.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Hibari never wanted to be a ninja, and never asked for her eyes to manifest as the Kagan. If she could, she'd give everything away if she tried, and desperately just wants to be someone who ''isn't'' special.
* {{Irony}}: Hibari's Kagan grants her puppeteer like abilities...meanwhile, Haruka, for quite awhile, wanted Hibari to be nothing more than her puppet.
* KillerRabbit: If she is competent enough. Being a playable character, she probably will be.

A third year at Hanzo Academy, Daidōji is a senior student who is well-respected by the other students. She possesses immense strength and agility and prefers to run into battle head-on rather than hiding in the shadows.

Daidōji typically fights weaponless, instead harnessing the power of her fists.

-> Favorite Food: Meat
-> Ninja Animal: Tiger
-> Weapon: [[BareFistedMonk Fists]]
-->[-VA: YuuAsakawa (Japanese), Martha Harms (English)-]
----
* AmazonianBeauty: She's extremely muscular. While her outfit does cover most of her body it leaves her torso exposed, which shows off her very large breasts, barely supported by a {{sarashi}}, and her well-defined abs.
* {{Badass}}: She showcases her skills by effortlessly pushing back the five girls of Hanzo in the anime.
** She takes on a pack of Youmas by herself on ''Deep Crimson''
** BadassLongcoat: One that bears the kanji of her name on the back.
* BareFistedMonk: She is one of few characters who lacks a weapon of sort. She only fights with the raw power of her fists with occasional kick here and there.
* BareYourMidriff
* BoobsOfSteel: She's incredibly strong (perhaps even the strongest) in pure hand-to-hand combat, and has the second-largest bust of all the girls: 100 cm. (Just 1 cm bigger than Haruka!)
* ContraltoOfDanger: Very much so!
* DigitalBikini: Wears a Japanese Fundoshi as her bikini if she receives enough clothing damage or if she's in frantic mode. While normally a thong, in ''Burst'' her fundoshi has extra wrappings that cover her cheeks. Likely due to a glitch of some sort, these wrappings often appear as large patches of completely untextured white.
* TheDreaded: Ikaruga and Katsuragi had every right to be afraid of this woman during their first year at Hanzo.
* {{Expy}}: She's basically a [[GenderFlip female]] [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Kujo Jotaro]].
* HeldBackInSchool: To be more specific, she is holding herself back from graduating before she can defeat Rin, and has been doing this for ten years.
* HeroicBuild: She's much more muscular than any of the other girls.
** Amusingly, her muscles vanish when her clothes are damaged or discarded on Frantic Mode.
* HonorBeforeReason: Daidouji refuses to graduate until she's had a proper match with Rin. Rin died several years ago on a mission. [[spoiler:Has no idea that Rin [[FaceHeelTurn is currently the sensei of Hebijo Academy]].]]
** [[spoiler:She learns of Rin's fate during ''Burst's'' events and actually team ups with her during ''Deep Crimson'']]
* HugeSchoolgirl: She's technically this due to her refusing to graduate. The anime portrays her as being practically the same size when she was a proper student as she is now, though it's unclear if this was the case in canon.
* ImageSong: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1AZTFdqcHc The Path Of The Raging Demon]] in ''Bon Appétit''.
* TheJuggernaut: This woman's monstrous strength also makes her nearly impossible to take down. This was also evident in past New Wave events where she's was an event boss [[HopelessBossFight whose only purpose was to help players climb up the damage rankings]]. As you could expect, absolutely nothing would work.

** Heaven and Earth Falling Hundred Million Violent Echo Fist (Aerial, ''Burst'')
** Yell Gun (With Asuka, ''Deep Crimson'')
* KiManipulation: From Versus onwards she's able to launch {{Energy Ball}}s
* MegatonPunch: Her signature move on ''Burst''. If she catches you on the ground when her HP is in the red, she ''will'' use an unavoidable, OneHitKill dragon punch. From Versus onwards has been demoted to a regular ninja art.
* MightyGlacier: She hits likes a tank, but she is also the slowest character out of the whole cast, so keeping a high hit count with her during a mission is harder to do.
* NiceHat: The one that looks like [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Kujo Jotaro's]]. Wearing it changes her normally-blonde hair to black, thus creating her signature look. [[spoiler: She started wearing it sometime after Rin went missing, since when they meet years later, Rin didn't recognize Daidouji at first due in part to the difference in hair color]].
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Her model in ''Burst'' has a dark layer of CelShading applied to it, something that everyone else lacks. This makes her more intimidating, but it vanishes after she takes ClothingDamage.
** The dark layer vanishing is fitting, as upon suffering clothing damage Daidouji loses her wild, menacing black wig, revealing her much more feminine golden locks of hair, making her look overall less intimidating.
* NoShirtLongJacket: Helped by wearing a sarashi around her chest.
* OralFixation: Carries a twig in her mouth on ''Deep Crimson''
* RapidFireFisticuffs: Her Aerial Ninpo has her unleash one of these, with almost full screen range.
** On ''Deep Crimson'' she gains the ability to spam these during her combos.
* RapunzelHair
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Suzune's blue oni.
* TheRival: To the extreme, with Rin [[spoiler: a.k.a. Suzune]]. She refuses to graduate until she has a proper match with Rin. Keep in mind that Rin is declared KIA.
* {{Sarashi}}: She wears the wraps under her jacket; she's also got a set of Sarashi ''panties''.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Her gravure scenes in ''Bon Appétit''.
* SheCleansUpNicely: Several CG images in ''Bon Appétit'' show her without her wig and in several regular outfits, and she is ''gorgeous''!
* StatuesqueStunner
* SuperToughness: On ''Deep Crimson'' she can spend a shinobi scroll to gain this, while active she can't be stunned by enemy attacks nor get her attacks interrupted.
* UnflinchingWalk: Daidōji is the only character who has this as her default speed. The only time she ever runs is when dashing.

[[quoteright:287:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/p_kiriya_1938.jpg]]

Kiriya is the Shinobi class instructor at Hanzō Academy. Born to a long line if shinobi, it was decided at an early age that Kiriya would follow suit. Despite having immense aptitude for the way of the Shinobi, Kiriya grew disgusted with the [[HonorBeforeReason way that shinobi had to risk their lives with each mission]], and turned to the teaching department instead. He strives to build his students into full-fledged shinobi. Due to tragic circumstances involving a former student, he tries not to interfere too much with his current shinobi-in-training. Kiriya believes in teaching his students everything he knows, while giving them the independence to be strong on their own.

He is a taciturn and strict teacher, but this is because of his high expectations for his students.

----
* {{Badass}}: [[InformedAbility Allegedly]], he was an elite shinobi in the past, and the "best of the best". Whatever skills he had besides explosive teleportation are never really shown.
* CoolTeacher: A shinobi sensei dressed in a black suit, with white hair, whose primary method of coming and going is body flickering, Kiriya definitely qualifies.
* {{Expy}}: He seems to be quite similar to Kakashi. A white-haired ninja master, who is now a stern teacher, raised from his youth to be a ninja, his parents were even ninja as well. [[spoiler:He even lost someone important to him on a mission in the past, and it pretty much has affected him throughout the rest of his life. And the lost one turns out to be alive and became a member of the [[FaceHeelTurn Enemies' Team]].]]
* InnocentInnuendo: From ''Shinovi Versus''.
** ''That softness, the white, beautiful shape... That hypnotizing jiggle... That silky texture, the delicate sweetness filling your mouth... It is astounding! ...Tofu. I have a secret passion for tofu. ...Excuse me.''
* InformedAbility: Despite being described as an elite, he's rarely seen doing anything in the games or the anime. And, despite being a shinobi, he seems to be rather easy to trick, having been duped by the Hebijo girls ''at least'' twice, and just one clash with Suzune from Hebi left him injured in the anime. Perhaps being retired dulled his skills?
* [[spoiler: MyGreatestFailure: He considers saving Rin during her Shinobi test (he saved her from getting shot by a doll before anyone could notice, thus allowing her to pass her test), allowing her to become a full-fledged Shinobi and leading to her dying on a mission a few months later, as the greatest failure of his life.]]
* {{Ninja}}: He has been doing this for a long time.
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: He has the tendency to ignore the sheer presence of the fanservice.
* OnlySaneMan: When faced by his students' antics. He even glosses over [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight Katsuragi's grope-happy tendency!]]
* RetiredBadass: According to [[spoiler:Rin]], Kiriya used to be an elite ninja, the best of the best. He's currently working as a shinobi sensei now, because, while missions pose the risk of death, teaching doesn't.
* SharpDressedMan: Always wears a pretty nice suit.
* SmokeOut: At least in anime, he really likes to use smoke bombs to either enter or exit places.

[[caption-width-right:347: The legendary ninja himself. Also a huge pervert.]]

The legendary shinobi and Asuka's grandfather. He is a master that is very well known throughout the shinobi realm. Maikaku Special Duty Intel Department's Special Secret Intel Agent. In other words, he's also considered the founder of the shinobi squad.

With the prodigy shinobi's name as the foundation, Hanzo Academy was built for the sole purpose of conditioning future talents in this ancent art.

He is a generally friendly person and is very found of his granddaughter Asuka. He is also the provider of the futomaki that Asuka and friends are often seen eating which he prepares in his shop.

Like his grand-daughter, he has the ability to summon Tree Frogs.

-->[-VA: Kanehira Yamamoto (Japanese), Bill Brooks (English)-]
----
* BadassGrandpa: He may be retired, but he still is a legendary shinobi.
* TheBet: Incite Yumi to defy Hanzo academy. He has to be awfully confident in his grand-daughter's abilities so that nobody will die.
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler:He purposely instigated Yumi into wanting to declare Shinobi Battle Royale on Hanzo, and confirmed it as Wang Pai, just to help open their eyes to seeing a different viewpoint of good and evil, and was gambling his granddaughter's abilities and safety.]]
* BigGood: Being the head of the Hanzo school, he's the closest the series has to one.
* DirtyOldMan: Originally he didn't really shows shades of these, but [[CharacterizationMarchesOn later on it started to be become clear]] that he admires the boobs of young ladies. Though he doesn't go much farther than just groping some of the girls.
* FlashStep: And Hanzo uses it to grope girls.
* ExceptionallyTolerant: There must be darkness for light to exist. Take a fondness on Homura (for more than just seeing her in the hot springs even).
* KickTheDog: He spends his first encounter with the Gessen girls groping them and stealing the food they were bringing Kurokage. He even mocks Yumi for not being "pure" anymore before leaving. [[spoiler: He was deliberately picking a fight, which makes him a Troll]].
* PowerPerversionPotential: He knows about it.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Has no problem with Hanzo school students starting to sympathize with Evil Shinobi, and encourages the girls to come to their own conclusions.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Blue to Kurokage's Red.
* RetiredBadass: He used to be a powerful Ninja, but now runs a Sushi shop instead.
* SecretIdentity: [[spoiler: Of Wang Pai, the Gessen Elite's teacher.]]
* StealthMentor: [[spoiler:To the girls at Gessen Academy, as Wang Pai.]]
* SupremeChef: Runs a sushi restaurant in his retirement. A damn good one, at that.
* TheTrickster: With a side of OpportunisticBastard. He tends to take advantage of the girls (especially Asuka) for his own perverse amusement. A good example is an anime special in which he tricks Asuka and Homura into "settling their rivalry" with a series of contests along the lines of "[[{{Fanservice}} who can fit into their too-small shirt the faster?]]"
* TheWonka: Flipping between legendary ninja and raging pervert.

!!Homura Crimson Squad

[[quoteright:190:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/senrankagura_team_crimson_728.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:190:The Disgraced]]

For reasons of their own, the five former Hebijo Elites chose to let their school burn rather than defend it to the death. Six months later, they continue to pay for that decision. Together on the run, they live as renegades, eking out a menial living by day, keeping one eye open every night. With their school rebuilt and out for blood, it's only a matter of time before they face their final reckoning.

!!Related to all Past Hebijo/Crimson Squad shinobi:
* AntiHeroTeam: In Versus games, they become this.
* BadassCrew
* CatchPhrase: "I sacrifice myself to the will of evil/our dance!"
* DarkActionGirl
* DressingAsTheEnemy: In the anime, they wear Hanzo academy uniforms to infiltrate the school under all the normal students noses.

** DarkChick / TheChick: Mirai
* HighlyVisibleNinja: Collectively, they finally provide an aversion in ''Shinovi Versus''. Instead of school uniforms, they wear street clothes that, while very flattering, do blend in just fine. [[spoiler: They're even actually using them to blend in, what with being exiles.]]
* NobleDemon: The Hebijo/Crimson girls are far from being as evil as they seem; in fact, the game goes to lengths to show that they are in fact really close to the Hanzō girls while being much more aware than them that they chose to live in a dark and violent world. Hell, "evil shinobi" means little more than being a mercenary rather than an actual villain.
** Homura: [[spoiler:She fights to feel alive and to protect her Hebijo comrades.]]
** Yomi: [[spoiler:Apart from her fixation on rich ojou-sama, she's probably one of the sweetest and most friendly of the Hebijo girls. But you have to be a good listener with an affinity for bean sprouts.]]
** Hikage: [[spoiler:She has multiple opportunities to eliminate Katsuragi, but she never follows through.]]

A [[spoiler:former]] second-year student at Hebijo Academy. She aims to be the very best shinobi, and will do whatever it takes to achieve that goal. As an elite Hebijo member, she has immense ability as well as strong leadership skills.

While her voice may sound slightly masculine, her good manners show her true femininity. She is grateful to her friends and relentless toward her rivals, but respects and admires the strong regardless of their affiliation.

She fights by wielding six katanas at the same time. She also carries around a Nōdachi named "Engetsuka" which she can draw out to unleash [[SuperMode Crimson Homura]]. Homura's elemental affinity is fire.

----
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Subverted. In-game art and dialogue reveal that she's tanned.
* AnimalMotifs: Snakes, of course ([[AnimalJingoism bonus points for Asuka the Frog, above]]). More specifically the Japanese Rat Snake.
** Also crabs, judging by her comedy routines.
* {{Badass}}: One of, if not the strongest among the shinobi girls. Even more so in Crimson form.
* BerserkButton: She ''really'' doesn't take betrayal very well.
** Harming Asuka is another one.
*** Although it should be noted that she doesn't like anyone hurting Asuka because [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou Asuka is hers to defeat.]] [[spoiler: [[TsunDere NOT because she cares about Asuka,]] [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial or anything like that.]]]]
* BloodKnight: Homura has stated in the first game that she fights to feel alive. [[spoiler:After she got disowned by her parents]], she felt she lacked a purpose in life. Fighting allows her to truly feel alive.
-->'''Homura:''' [[spoiler:When the people I loved most cast me aside, my heart stopped beating.]] But when I am in the middle of a fight, I realize that I can still feel alive. Yes. If I'm not fighting as a shinobi, I'm no better than a corpse.
** She considers the fact that Hanzō and Hejibo both exist is reason enough for them to fight. When you consider what "evil/dark shinobi" actually means, this is the equivalent of [[PrivateMilitaryContractor Blackwater Worldwide]] declaring war on the United States ForTheEvulz.
* CrimeOfSelfDefense: See Dark and Troubled Past.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:She was banished from her family due to her killing an evil ninja who attacked her when she was still a middle-school student. She did it as a self-defense, but they cast her out anyway.]]
* EtTuBrute: Like the BerserkButton entry states, she does '''not''' take betrayal very well.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: ''Everybody'' can tell she cares about Asuka more than she lets on. Now, whether this is platonic or not is much more ambiguous, but [[spoiler: [[ShipperOnDeck Yumi]]]] seems to ship them. Not to mention her frequent use of SuspiciouslySpecificDenial when it comes to helping Asuka.
* {{Expy}}: Of ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' version of UsefulNotes/DateMasamune. In fact, there's a pin-up of Homura dressed almost like SB's Masamune, complete with his eyepatch, albeit Homura uses Mirai's one.
* {{Foil}}: To Asuka.
* FriendlyEnemy: She loves to fight Asuka at any given chance, and holds nothing back as Shinobi tradition and respect demand, but after the first day it's obvious her intent isn't lethal anymore.
* GuestFighter: Appears as a guest character in ''Nitro+Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel''.
* GratuitousFrench: Only in the localization, Homura uses the term "joie de vivre", literally "exhilaration".
* HotBlooded
* IdiotHair
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Rather brutally {{Deconstructed}}. [[spoiler: Her defending herself and killing the man who was going to kill her results in her being thrown out and loses the chance to become a good Shinobi and while she defended herself, it's shown she herself does not exactly justify it.]]
* ImageSong: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsUvTd-ZGKI Break Out Of Your Shell]] in ''Bon Appétit''.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Why yes, they are so good that she wields ''six'' of them. She carries a nōdachi, which she doesn't normally use unless she becomes Crimson Homura, in which case she primary uses it.
* LightningBruiser: Quite fast, durable, and and can cause a lot of damage with her 6 katanas.
* TheLeader: It seems that the Hebi girls naturally respect her.

* PetTheDog: Homura reveals she wears frilly pink pajamas, so that Mirai will feel less insecure about her bear-print panties, in addition to telling her that, at Hebijo, seniority doesn't matter, they are all comrades.
* RapunzelHair: Especially in her Crimson form.
* TheRival: To Asuka. A bit (or a ''lot'', depending on who you [[spoiler: i.e Yumi]] ask) of FoeYay[=/=]HoYay is there.
* SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack: Back at Hebijo, she didn't have a special outfit after doing a Shinobi transformation; her combat outfit was the same exact school uniform, but now with wrist guards.

* TakingYouWithMe: In the anime, she vowed to do this to Dōgen. Luckily, Asuka stopped her from going through with it.

A [[spoiler:former]] second-year student at Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy. She grew up in the slums, and so grew both her longing to live in an affluent house and hatred of those privileged enough to be born into wealth in the first place. She has a special hatred for Ikagura for those exact reasons.

She adopts an exaggerated fighting style by brandishing a sword longer than her entire body and also shooting a cannon. Yomi's elemental affinity is wind. It's also worth mentioning that she LOVES bean sprouts!

* AffablyEvil: She's rather polite when you first meet her. Even in combat.
* AnimalMotifs: Her ninja animal is the burrowing rat snake.
* ArmCannon: Her ''other'' weapon is an arm-mounted cannon.
* AutomaticCrossbow: The other {{Arm Cannon}}s she has is essentially a shuriken-firing crossbow.
* AxCrazy: Her obsession of bean sprouts and actions against anyone who's wealthy, or comes off as wealthy, gets pretty scary sometimes.
-->'''Ikaruga:''' Wait! You said you had to kill me to complete your mission! What is the meaning of this?
-->'''Yomi:''' Those who sneer at bean sprouts will someday die by bean sprouts. That is the meaning of this.
* BadassAdorable: Despite her cute appearance, she does wield a BFS and heavy artillery.
* BalloonBelly: In her ''Bon Appetit'' ending after resolving her "Lovers quarrel" with bean sprouts throughout the story.
* BerserkButton: Are you a rich princess? Do you find any other delicacy of food other than bean sprouts to be quite delicious? Then congratulations! Yomi will now take your head off!
* {{BFS}}: Has a gigantic broadsword, which is both thick AND long, and she can extend it even further in one of her ninpos.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: She's very polite, sweet and always sports a pleasant smile. But, it masks her aggressive and sadistic side.
* BizarreTasteInFood: Due to having grown up in poverty, Yomi has bizarre tastes in foods that she's had to eat to make ends meet, such as cabbage cores, ''hornet larvae boiled in soy sauce'', but even ''she'' turns her nose up at earthworms.
* BlondesAreEvil
* ChainsawGood: Her sword has a chainsaw-like function built into it ''Deep Crimson'' onwards.
* [[spoiler: ChildhoodFriend: It's revealed in the Death Cram story that her & Murakumo were friends back in the slums]].
* CordonBleughChef: She seems to be able to cook just fine, even if her ingredients can be bit shady (like wild grass).
* CuteAndPsycho
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:She grew up in the slums and her parents died of malnutrition while still caring for her. This caused her bitterness and hatred towards prosperous people like Ikaruga.]]
* DropTheHammer: One of her alternate weapons in Senran Kagura 2 is a giant mallet.
* {{Expy}}: [[{{BFS}} A giant sword]], arm-mounted AutomaticCrossbow, an ArmCannon, bombs... she essentially has [[Manga/{{Berserk}} Guts']] arsenal in her disposal.
* GigglingVillain: When she does, it's either darn cute or just plain creepy.
* InsaneTrollLogic: Yomi believes people with money shouldn't be allowed to have good hearts, purely because, as a child, she never met anyone with money who cared about helping the poor like her and her family. She flies into a rage at Ikaruga, who is rather rich, but also takes time out of her day to help the poor after her last encounter with Yomi, which causes her to rethink herself.

* MusclesAreMeaningless: In the Hebijo intro for Burst, she's seen lifting weights ''stacked upon dozens of other weights''. This part of her training might be why she's able to carry around her [[{{BFS}} huge sword]].
* MightyGlacier: Like Ikaruga, but slower. She compensates with her powerful projectiles and explosives.
%%* NiceHat
* OneeSama: Yomi convinces Mirai to call her "Onee-sama" (Sis in the localizations) because she's always wanted to be one.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In her Bon Appétit story, the sheer mentioning of Yomi's separation from bean sprouts alone is enough to shock anyone she comes across. It gets to the point where the situation gets treated like some sort of serious breakup.
* PetTheDog: To Mirai, when Yomi reveals she wears a stomach band to sleep, to help her over her insecurity with her bear panties.
* PimpedOutDress: It's a gown, and it doesn't look like a combat gear or for that matter ''practical''. When you've been stuck in poverty and you suddenly have the power to make clothing out of thin air, you would pimp that out too.
* RapunzelHair
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Hikage and Ikaruga's blue.

* ThemeNaming: Her Ninja Arts are named after terms in Norse Mythology.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Everyone in the series has one, but hers is worth mentioning: if something doesn't have bean sprouts in it, she simply doesn't like it. She always talks about bean sprouts, even in battle!
* {{Tsundere}}: Type-B. It comes out especially often during her interactions with Ikaruga in ''Deep Crimson''.
* WeaponOfChoice: A {{BFS}}. Between that and her Western clothing, she'd feel right at home in either a (deranged) European FairyTale or a {{JRPG}}.

A [[spoiler:former]] third-year student at Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy. She’s expressionless and largely wordless, to the point that nobody can ever quite tell what she’s thinking.

She claims to have no emotions, but she’s surrounded by friends who are frank and upfront with their feelings, giving her an almost scientific curiosity about the very concept of human emotion. Her weapon of choice is the knife, which she wields with grace and aplomb. Hikage's affinity is poison.

--> [-VA: Creator/RyokoShiraishi (Japanese), Creator/KaraEdwards (English)-]
----
* AdaptationalVillainy: The anime paints her in a worse light than in the games, where she is more prone of sporting a SlasherSmile and being bit more sadistic. In Haruka's brief explanation of the rest of her team, she claims she is a ChildSoldier, where as in games, she was an emotionless orphan who grew with a street gang.
* AmbiguousDisorder: Hikage is rather.....Odd.
* AnimalMotifs: Snakes, and she even has a Cobra as her ninja animal.
* BareYourMidriff
* BrilliantButLazy: She has everything it takes to be a shinobi, especially the drive to kill. She just don't feel like going the whole nine yards.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Shinovi Versus loved doing this with her more than Burst.
* DashAttack / VideogameDashing
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:She grew up on the streets, and was adopted by a female gang leader named Hinata who was killed in a fight some times afterward. Her signature knife is a TragicKeepsake of her mentor.]]
* DefrostingIceQueen: In ''Shinovi Versus''. Katsuragi is astonished when Hikage jokes about groping Katsuragi as a reward for helping with her training.
* DualWielding
* EmotionlessGirl: Hikage is a very strange example of the trope. She claims to have no emotions, and is unable to feel anything. Yet numerous points in the series show that she is very much capable of emotion, she just appears to be unaware of it. As a child, when her mentor Hinata, the closest thing she'd had to a parent, was killed, and Hikage found her body, she broke down crying. A similar situation happened in ''Burst'', when she thought Mirai had been killed, Hikage began to cry as well. She describes the sensation as "a rainstorm in her heart", and doesn't actually realize that she's crying until Mirai points it out.
* {{Expy}}: She looks a lot like [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Yuuka Kazami]], even sharing some aspects of her personality. In fact, there's a lot of fan-art of both Yuuka and Hikage sharing their clothes or being together.
** Her [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair green hair]], [[HellishPupils yellow eyes]], [[SnakesAreSexy snake motifs]], and [[KnifeNut love of knives]] make her appearance-wise a [[GenderBender gender-bent]] one to [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Hazama/Yuuki Terumi]]. In terms of [[AvertedTrope personality though]], [[EmotionlessGirl they couldn't]] [[ReiAyanamiExpy be any]] [[FauxAffablyEvil more]] [[LaughingMad different]].
* FaceOfAThug: Has HellishPupils, dresses in a street-gang manner, is a KnifeNut... but not all that bad.

A [[spoiler:former]] first-year student at Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy. While her graciousness in defeat may suggest a certain level of maturity, in truth she can be immature and disobedient. Her lack of maturity is best displayed in her hatred of being ignored.

While it can sometimes be hard for her being surrounded by more mature shinobi, overall she is very happy to be a member of the Hebijo Academy. Her umbrella is a concealed firearm, and she hides other heavy weapons under her skirt.

* ACupAngst: {{Downplayed}}, but it's there. The fans often joke that it's the #1 reason that she's constantly bullied.
* {{Adorkable}}: One can't help but admit how adorable she gets when she goes full otaku on people sometimes. Add the fact that she's a diehard [[ShowWithinAShow Sengoku Super Wars]] fangirl and she definitely comes off as this.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: She went through constant bullying in the past which made a serious dent in her self-esteem.
* AxCrazy: Mostly evident in the Hanzo side where she's shown to react violently towards Yagyū any time she doesn't pay attention to her. She'd even go as far as torturing Hibari if it meant Yagyū wouldn't ignore her. Thankfully she's gotten a whole lot better since then thanks to character development.
* [[EvilCounterpart Antagonistic Counterpart]]: A mirror-match in a number of ways to Yagyū: same schoolyear in different schools, eyepatches of different designs and materials[[note]]Hers is more mechanical and modern, while Yagyū's is more traditional.[[/note]] in opposite positions, different types of umbrellas, hair color, etc.
* AttentionWhore: Not to an extreme, but doesn't like being ignored.
* BerserkButton: Mirai will not react well to anyone who ignores her.
* {{BFG}}: Valkyrie sure counts. It's bigger than she is!
* ButtMonkey: She's about as weak as Hibari when it comes to being a ninja, but she acts big and considers Yagyū her rival. Yagyū is a ''ChildProdigy''. Yagyū also tends to ignore Mirai when she appears, being more focused on something else, much of her annoyance.
** LethalJokeCharacter: In-game only, a pure ranged fighter with the ability to counter attacks just when you think it is safe to attack her at melee range? She is this in spades.
* CatGirl: Her second animal motif, strangely.
* CuteLittleFangs: To match cat ears and tail on her costume.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:She used to be bullied in her old school, causing her to have a sort of inferiority complex.]]
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Her eyepatch looks like [[MetalGearSolid4 the Solid Eye]] with a Mitsudomoe symbol.

* GatlingGood: One of her default weapons in Senran Kagura 2 is a ''portable gatling gun''.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: Mirai wears very cute, bear-print panties. Haruka finds this hilarious.
* GrenadeLauncher: One of her weapon stances in Senran Kagura 2 is a grenade launcher.
* {{Hammerspace}}: Where DOES she store her anti-tank rifle Valkyrie, anyway?
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: She takes the bullet for Homura when Yagyū tries to shoot her in the first game.]]
* HimeCut: Long black hair. Due to being petite, it reaches beyond her hips.

* MoreDakka: Her umbrella has machine-gun in it.
** Her Ninja Arts bring more and more dakka as they come. Her first Ninja art is always an anti-tank rifle, followed up with a belt made out of gatling guns. Her final Ninja Art changes, was it firing her anti-tank rifle in combination of using her umbrella as a flamethrower (''Burst''), using a KillSat (''Deep Crimson'') or summoning ''giant cannon on wheels with multiple rifles and gatling guns on its side'' (''Shinovi Versus'').
* [[OlderThanTheyLook Older Than She Looks]]: This ElegantGothicLolita looks 12 years old, but actually is the same age as Yagyū.
* ParasolOfPain: With a machine-gun attachment no less.
* PenName: For her online novelist identity, she uses "Futsure", which is her name in English [[GratuitousEnglish pronounced like it was written in Japanese]].
* PetitePride: Where she does sometimes show the desire to gain larger breasts, she is at least fine with her being flat, saying that people do like them small.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: She's the shortest of the Crimson Girls and manages to pack some serious power.
* RealTimeWeaponChange: She has the ability to switch between her umbrella, a gatling gun, and a grenade launcher in Senran Kagura 2.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Haruka and Yagyū's blue
* RedEyesTakeWarning

* SchoolSwimsuit: Her default swimsuit.
* SmallGirlBigGun: Whatever gun comes from her skirt, its probably at very least her size.
* StealthPun: Instead of the actual Vaio laptop, Mirai uses a ''[[BlandNameProduct Paio]]'' laptop to write her stories on.
* StockShoujoBullyingTactics: She was mostly the victim of being ignored by others.
* StoneWall: In Burst, while her HP, Attack and Defense are low, she has a move that can negate the damage of enemies' attacks as well as counter-attack said enemies as a response. This move, if timed well, can help her survive many attacks without a scratch.
* TeamMom: Becomes this after proving her reliability in ''Bon Appetit''. Also a case of BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor.
* ThemeNaming: Her Ninja Arts are named after stuff from German war history, most notably from World War II.

A [[spoiler:former]] third-year student at Hebijo Acadeny . She’s a sadistic character who acts like the queen of the castle, and her favourite thing in the world is to tease the weak. Yet despite this, she cradles her juniors’ feelings and acts almost like a mother figure to them. This maternal instinct is probably the reason why she is fond of Hibari from Hanzo Academy.

She uses chemical weapons and puppetry, concealing the inner workings of her strategies under her white coat.

----
* AnimalMotifs: The Japanese keelback.
* AffablyEvil: Unlike Yomi, her polite nature comes off as intimidating.
* BadassLongcoat: While not especially long, she often uses what she stores in it, or even the coat itself, as her weapon.
* TheBaroness: The Sexpot type.
* BodySurf: When she's about to fight Hibari she'll usually Body Surf into a lifelike doll of herself (at least, that's how ''Burst'''s English translation handles it).
* BoobsOfSteel: She is a top-tier ninja possessing rare skill, and her boobs are significantly greater than the rest of the cast[[note]]Excluding Murasaki and Daidōji.[[/note]] ([[UpToEleven which is saying something]]).
* CatSmile: She's make a rather goofy one in Bon Appétit.
* ChainsawGood: Her robot puppet possesses one.
* CoatCape: She wears her {{labcoat|ofscienceandmedicine}} this way.
* CombatSadoMasochist: Implied. Just read the names of her leitmotifs below...
* CoolBigSis: She acts more in the lines of big sister mentor to the other girls. Hibari even reminds her of such after she starts having doubts.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:Is mentally twisted due to her having been [[MyBelovedSmother nothing more than her mother's doll]].]]
* DifficultButAwesome: Like Hibari she's sort of strange to get the hang of at first, but eventually becomes very strong.
* {{Dominatrix}}: She just lacks the whip.
* GeniusBruiser: Highly intelligent? Check. Capable of beating foes within an inch of their life? Check. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Very sexy?]] Double check.
* GradualGrinder: She's the only shinobi who's capable of inflicting multiple status effects on her opponents.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: She genuinely wants to be friends with Hibari. Although in her case, it's not clear whether she means it in the traditional sense, looking for a lesbian pet rabbit or even both.
** If ''Shinovi Versus'' is anything to go by, it's the former. The two are mutually happy to see each other, Haruka asks Hibari for advice, Hibari shows off how strong she's become, and all of Haruka's sexual lust for her is pretty much gone. In the main story anyway. The character stories show that Haruka ''does'' still find Hibari adorable, but [[PlayedForLaughs considering the way the character stories go]] it's not ''nearly'' as unsettling as it was in ''Burst.''

%%* MightyGlacier: Though her normal attacks are very short ranged, they do a lot of damage. Her Ninpos are also very strong, [[UselessUsefulSpell aside from the basic Ground one]].
* {{Ojou}}: You certainly wouldn't have guessed from looking at her. On the other hand, she doesn't like being an Ojou, she craves independence.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: Seems to be an expert in both chemicals and robotics. Perhaps genetic engineering too, taking the... ''things'' in the test tubes in the opening of ''Burst'' into account.
** ''Guren no Hebi'' confirms that Haruka is indeed a genius in genetic engineering as well, having created a carnivorous plant/snake chimera part as a new weapon for Hebijo and part for her own amusement.
* PetTheDog: In her own... ''strange'' way, after laughing at Mirai's bear-print panties, Haruka gives her a negligee to help her over her insecurities.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Mirai's and Hibari's red.
* RobotBuddy: Ever since ''Versus'', Haruka has a small battle robot hidden in her lab coat. It has piston punches, claws, chainsaws, flamethrowers and a notable AI, considering it's capable of fawning over Haruka. (As though she'd build a robot that wouldn't).
* SexySadist: She's a total sadist and enjoys making sexy-fun of Hibari. One can suspect that there is a rape scene missing in episode 9.
* TheSouthpaw: Surprisingly, she's lefthanded.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Again, her outfit (along with Shiki) is the most scanty one out of all 79 girls. No, Katsuragi doesn't count; that girl wasn't trying to ''wear'' much to begin with.
* TeamMom: Sadism aside (somehow), she's (somehow) the one who works hard to keep her friends' spirits up (somehow).
* TheTease: Likes to use innuendos and double entendres sometimes just to get a reaction out of people.
* TooKinkyToTorture: Haruka very blatantly enjoys being beaten to the point of having her clothing shredded. [[spoiler:[[BodySurf It helps that it's usually not her real body]].]]
* WeaponOfChoice: Chemicals, carried around in glass tubes, and a [[RobotBuddy robot buddy]].
* YouAreWhatYouHate: [[spoiler:Haruka's Freudian Excuse is that her mother reduced her to a dress-up doll in response to her father practically abandoning their family. Now, think back on all that effort Haruka put in to making Hibari a doll of her own]].

[[caption-width-right:219:The Vile]]

Hebijo Clandestine Girls' Academy was renowned throughout the criminal underworld for its ruthless spies and vicious assassins - until the school burned down in a terrible battle six months ago. Now, from the old school's smoke and ashes, a new leader emerges. Her followers hail from all corners of the shinobi world, each one proud in her own way to call herself "evil." Their first mission: Hunt down the school's former Elites, punish their failure and betrayal, and restore the name of Hebijo to its former glory.

!!Related to all Hebijo Clandestine shinobi
* AutobotsRockOut: In ''Shinovi Versus'', all of the girls' themes are done in hard rock and heavy metal. While rock music has always been a staple in the ''Senran Kagura'' series, the Hebijo girls stand out the most in that their themes are purely done in rock music.
* BadassCrew
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler: By Dōgen. The Crimson Squad frees them though]].
* CatchPhrase: "I dance for the honor of evil!"
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Often on the receiving end of this from the Crimson Squad, especially from Homura, who calls them out on being a bunch of violent lunatics who only claim superiority because of their school.
* FiveBadBand:
** BigBad: Miyabi
** TheDragon: Imu
** TheBrute: Ryōna
** EvilGenius: Ryōbi
** DarkChick: Murasaki
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler: They kill off the other factions as an act of vengeance]].
* NotSoDifferent: They claim the way of Evil Shinobi is entirely different and superior to Good Shinobi, and the world would be better off without Good Shinobis' weakness. [[GenreBlind They're totally unaware]] this is a perfect mirror of Gessen's philosophy.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Good god. They're pretty much hell-bent on reforming Hebijo that they [[spoiler: disposed of the other three factions to do so]].
* [[ShortRangeGuyLongRangeGuy Short-Range Girl, Long-Range Girl]]: Ryōbi and Ryōna respectively. Ryōbi's playstyle focuses more on long-range combat, while Ryōna specializes in fighting at close quarters.
* StupidEvil: Invoked [[spoiler:thanks to the brainwashing]]. Their utter dismissiveness of the merits of flexible thinking and ThePowerOfFriendship look more and more destructively narrow-minded as the plot goes on.
* SympatheticPOV: An interesting example. While their story explains why they come off as cruel and ruthless to the other teams, [[spoiler: it ends with them killing all their opposition]]. It's only in the other stories, where they're universally antagonistic agents of the BigBad, that [[spoiler:the brainwashing is broken and they reach an understanding with the other schools.]]
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Despite a network of familial relationships and childhood friendships, the group don't have any particular sense of unity and some aren't even that loyal to Hebijo itself, leading to more internal bickering than the other teams. [[spoiler: Depending on the story being played, this can lead to the group completely imploding.]]

* {{Bifauxnen}}: She has BoyishShortHair and is stated to be fairly masculine to the point that she's mistaken for a boy (in spite of her chest) .

* DeadpanSnarker: Miyabi won't hold back on insults. Although, this probably comes from her cold nature.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: To the point where she tries to find a way to be more feminine to get them off her back.
* HellishPupils: Strangely similar to Hikage's design.
* HiddenHeartOfGold: Well, "gold" might be pushing it, but she's not the emotionaless bitch the other teams take her for. She's just extremely loyal to Hibejo, the Shinobi code, and [[spoiler:her father, the last of which is being leveraged against the other two to blackmail her.]]

* OverratedAndUnderleveled: She's a graduate of Hebijo, which in theory should put her on the level of [[BonusBoss Daidoji and Suzune]]. Yet starts at level one and loses fights to actual students. Justified, as she spent a few years catatonic and wheelchair-bound, which did a number on her fitness and skills.
* PowerGivesYouWings: Her Ultimate Secret Ninja Art and SuperMode gives her six black angel wings during them.
* RedRightHand: Post-transformation, her left arm is coated in heavy gauze. The only part you can see are her fingers, which are a dark and ugly ''purple''. (It can be hard to notice in the general CostumePorn of her outfit).
* SuperMode: She gains one in ''Estival Versus'', which appears to be a more advanced version of her ultimate ''ninpo'' from ''Shinovi Versus''.
* ThemeNaming: Her Ninja Arts are named after the three canticles of ''Literature/DivineComedy'', of all things (Delightful ''Inferno'', ''Purgatorio'' of Good and Evil, ''Paradiso'' of The Abyss and ''Divine'' Judgement).
* VillainousBSOD: Played for laughs in Bon Appétit. Murakumo proceeds to call her by her secret ninja arts and takes her naming sense to her dismay. It aggravates her so much that she, somehow, manages to collapse into a [[HeroicRROD VillainousRROD]] of all things!

A Second year student and Imu's younger sister. She is very anti social and spends most of her time in her room playing with her stuffed bear plushy, Bebeby. She is known as the first truant in Hebijo's history because of her introverted nature. Due to an incident in the past, her relationship with her sister had been strained.

----
* AbusiveParents: As a child her father pulled her hair when she refused to start her training.
* BadassUnintentional: Her goal is to be left alone, at her room, with her plush. Still, she will stop anyone standing in her way to achieve said goal.
* BearsAreBadNews: Her ninja animal is the Bear.
* BerserkButton: Don't insinuate that Bebeby is just a toy. [[spoiler:Minori]] learns this the hard way.
** When Imu and Murasaki were younger, Imu snatched Bebeby away from Murasaki so she would stop being so dependent her. The end result was [[spoiler: her waking up to see Imu [[CurbStompBattle out cold by her feet]] followed by her father informing her of the [[CursedWithAwesome Root of Calamity power]] she possesses. Stating that by detonating her mental strength, the ninja art increases the power of the body ten times]].
** Another instance [[spoiler: was when a Hebijo examiner came to her room. When he was about to grab Bebeby, her cursed spirit power activated again. When Murasaki came to, her feet were covered by the examiner's blood. It was then revealed to be an [[SecretTest entrance exam]] for Hebijo, which, [[TheseHandsHaveKilled much to her shock]], she passes]].
** Another thing to also take note is that Murasaki thinks of Bebeby as a ''very close'' [[CompanionCube surrogate sister]]. Should anyone, and we mean ''ANYONE'', try to take, steal, or rip Bebeby apart; she will not have ''any'' mercy.
** Long story short, '''[[DoNotTauntCthulhu DON'T DO ANYTHING HARMFUL TO BEBEBY]]'''.
*** Murasaki ''seriously'' does not like hackers. If you just so happen to be one, '''run'''.
* BoobsOfSteel: [[UpToEleven She boasts the largest breasts of all the senrans]], but this is Played with as while she can call forth massive raw strength, she's not exactly a physical powerhouse.
* BrilliantButLazy: She's very capable of being an excellent ninja. However, she would rather play with Bebeby all day and browse the web than actually train.
* CastingAShadow: Her Root of Calamity power allows her to execute darkness based ninja arts.
* CompanionCube[=/=] SecurityBlanket: Bebeby
* CreepyChild
* CursedWithAwesome: The Root of Calamity power she possesses. Sure it gives her a lot of power, but her sister resented her for it.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler: She originally didn't want to become a shinobi, but was forced to by her father under the suspicion that she was using her cursed spirit power for her own gain. Soon after, Imu tries to take Bebeby away from Murasaki because she thought it was weighing her down. Because of her cursed power, this resulted in her hurting Imu, killing a Hebijo scout, receiving more attention than Imu, and threatened her own family for trying to exploit her power. She's felt that Imu was resentful of her ever since and would rather be around Miyabi.]]
* ElegantGothicLolita
* {{Expy}}: Bebeby bares a lot of resemblance to the Kumamoto Prefecture mascot, Kumamon.
* GlassCannon: Probably ''the'' glassiest of cannons. She hits hard, but her defense is rather terrible.
* {{Hikikomori}}: Spends most of her time secluded in her room. Her online username is even "cute_shutin"
* HomingProjectile: In ''Estival Versus'', she gains a new Strong Attack which allows her to fire purple energy orbs that home in on her locked target.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ep_56Dtf7l4 For Your Scar]]
* LimitBreak:

* PrehensileHair: Uses spinning blades attached to her hair for her attacks.
* PurpleEyes
* RapunzelHair
* ShrinkingViolet: Very soft-spoken and shy.
* SphereOfDestruction: How her Root of Calamity works. It comes in two forms, her Strong Attack/Breach Art and her [[LimitBreak Mid-Level Hidden Ninpo]].
* [[spoiler: TakingTheBullet: She does this for Imu when Ryōbi tries to shoot her. Fortunately, the shot didn't able to hit anything vital, and was able to survive it.]]
* UnskilledButStrong: As described above in brilliant but lazy; she has power but due to her lack of training, it's unrefined.
* VocalDissonance: She's usually soft spoken....right until she gets angry.
* WhenSheSmiles: Usually seen with a [[PerpetualFrowner depressed expression]] on her face. On rare occasions where she does smile, it's adorable.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]

* TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening: [[spoiler: Imu awakens the Root of Calamity when Murasaki is killed by Ryōbi.]]

-->[-VA: MAKO, (Japanese)-]
----
* AnimalMotif: The pig
* AxCrazy: She has absolutely no problem with killing you if you don't hurt her in any way. Not only that, she also has a tendency to unnerve people because of her hardcore masochism. This even makes her sadist sister, Ryōbi, want to avoid her sometimes!
-->'''Ryōna:''' Of course, if you won't hit me OR rub me...then I guess you can die. Yep. I'll need you to die.
* BerserkButton: Ryōna ''will'' finish you if you know anything about Ryōki.
** When her & Ryōbi were witnessing Sayuri send off one of the spirits and saw that she was about to do the same to Ryōki, she mowed down the shinobi Kekkai barrior just to get to her.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Her bizarre behavior may be hard to take seriously, but one should never forget that Ryōna is ''deadly''. If she wants to, she can and will kill you without a second thought.
* BigBreastPride: Loves to show off her breasts, which are an impressive 98 cm, making her one of the more bustier girls.

* DarkAndTroubledPast: Shared with Ryoubi. [[spoiler:They transferred to Hebijo to exact revenge on Miyabi, who they think was responsible for the death of their big sister, a Gessen teacher, during her mission to kill Miyabi in order stop her from using her power which was feeding yōmas. It was the mission which left Miyabi comatose for years, and during which Rin/Suzune was presumably killed (she was recruited by Miyabi's father).]]
* DissonantSerenity: She somehow finds a way to put on a smile in the most unsettling moments.
* DontTryThisAtHome: Advises the player not to engage in the same act of becoming a tempura like her. Yes. You read that right.
-->'''Ryōna:''' But don't you ever, EVER, try this at home. Even for a trained professional like me, becoming a piece of tempura is highly risky.

* GenkiGirl: A rather unsettling version of this trope.

* MeaningfulName: It's possible she was named after the [[{{Ryona}} infamous practice of the same name]] in videogames of exacting violence on female characters on very brutal ways. This is made more likely by her being a notorious masochist.
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: Wanting to see how it feels to be [[TakeOurWordForIt cooked alive, unremorsefully crushes two random mooks as a giant in the OVA]], and her masochistic antics in general make her a likely candidate as one.

* PimpedOutDress: Her dress is inspired by SwanLake.
* SeriousBusiness: She ''will'' go from a kinky attitude to a serious tone if anyone knows anything about her and Ryōbi's deceased sister, Ryōki. [[spoiler: She disposes of Yozakura when she was on the verge of finding out why they transferred to Hebijo]].

* TooKinkyToTorture: Well she is a masochist after all. During Katsuragi's substory Katsuragi humors Ryōna and agrees to "bully" her by groping her breasts, but soon regrets it when Ryōna ends up enjoying it instead of resisting like she expected.

* BadassInANiceSuit: He's actually a veteran shinobi and dressed up pretty nicely.
* BigBad: [[spoiler:For Crimson Girls and possibly Skirting Shadows. In the Hebijo storyline he is explicitly the one responsible for summoning Orochi and assimilating the Hebijo girls to do so, and can be chalked up to being responsible behind Orochi's appearance in the Hanzo storyline as well.]]
* BlondGuysAreEvil: He is probably the only genuinely evil character in the whole series and just happens to be blond. He even gains yellow fur when HulkingOut.
* ChekhovsGunman: He appears very briefly in the Hanzo storyline, without even being named, but every aspect of this scene heavily implies that he's a lot more important than his minor role here is letting on.
* CutsceneBoss: [[spoiler:In the Hebijo storyline he is effortlessly [[HalftheManHeUsedtoBe cut in half]] by Homura during the visual novel section.]]

She outright admits that if he applied that determination to [[YouCouldHaveUsedYourPowersForGood less selfish goals, he could have made the world a better place]].
* HateSink: Let's see, he [[spoiler: uses the Crimson Squad to revive Orochi resulting in them going rogue, killed Tsumuji when she was trying to save Homura, had Rin thrown in a holding cell for going against his orders, put the Crimson Girls on a dead man's switch, brainwashed the current ''and'' new Hebijo squad to do his bidding, captures Master Hanzo, and revives the other yoma as well. Luckily, Homura manages to kill the bastard for all the atrocities he committed]].
* HeroicBuild: His appearance in the first few games is never shown, but according to game text he's apparently a tall man with a sculpted physique. He does, however, get an appearance in the anime and eventually Senran Kagura 2. (As shown above)
* HulkingOut: Before his boss battle in SK 2, he does this by eating a Yoma fetus when confronted by Rin and Homura.
* ImplacableMan: No matter how many times Homura allegedly kills him, he manages come back every single time. You'd swear he has a whole bunch {{BodyDouble}}s stored away just for the occasion.
* TheManBehindTheMonsters: He is behind all of the ''yoma'' appearance in ''Deep Crimson''.
* MindManipulation: He has mastered the art of puppetry what allows him to take control of practically anyone he can. [[spoiler:He even uses it on ''himself'' to make himself unlock the true potential of his ''yoma'' form]].
* KilledMidSentence: [[spoiler:Is quickly killed by Homura in the Hebijo storyline as he was raving on about how he was going to use Orochi for his own intentions]].
* MonochromaticEyes: Well, just a single eye and based on the scar on his left eye implies that he is blind on the left eye due of some sort of battle.
* MysteriousBacker: His motives are a mystery even to the Hebijo school officials.
* TakeOverTheWorld: Where his plans with ''yoma'' first imply he is aiming for WarForFunAndProfit, ''Deep Crimson'' drop this as his true motive.

!!Gessen Girls School

[[quoteright:173:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/senrankagura_death_cram_5036.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:170:The Immaculate]]

The shinobi students of the Gessen Girls’ Academy pride themselves on strict discipline and purity of spirit. Their five Elites are all adopted children of the infamous shinobi Kurokage, who fought to purge all evil from the world. Devoted to his dream, these five noble souls wield their light to burn away darkness – by any means necessary.

!!Related to all Gessen School shinobi:
* BadassCrew
* CatchPhrase: "Sink into the dreams of sleeping souls!"
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:All of them were adopted by Kurokage after their shinobi parents were killed by evil shinobi; hence their unforgiving attitude toward the bad faction, and their initial Knight Templar hostility toward Hanzo for their friendship with Homura's group.]]
* DramaticallyMissingThePoint: Though he tried to raise them well, the girls never seemed to understand that he was trying to explain that his past worldview was wrong, and decided to take it upon themselves to fulfill his abandoned dream.
* [[FiveManBand Five Girl Band]]:
** TheHero: Yumi
** TheLancer: Yozakura
** BigGal: Murakumo
** SmartGirl: Shiki
** TheChick: Minori
* HappilyAdopted: Everyone who isn't Yumi, his biological granddaughter. Kurokage really cares about his adopted daughters, and they love him back.
* HeroAntagonist
* KnightTemplar: [[spoiler:Due to their Dark And Troubled Pasts, they believe all evil shinobi must be destroyed and that any good shinobi who get along with them lose their right to be called "good". This leads to them wanting to have a world with no evil shinobi, their adopted parent's, Kurokage, dream. At least until they actually see in their storyline that not all evil shinobi are downright evil causing them to rethink themselves.]]
* OrchestralBombing: In ''Shinovi Versus'', all of the girls' themes are this. Which makes sense because each of the girls' themes are [[Main/PublicDomainSoundtrack arrangements of famous classical music]].
** Yumi: Requiem Mass in D minor, by Mozart, and Piano Sonata No. 8 (Sonata Pathétique), by Beethoven
** Murakumo: Scythian Suite Op. 20, by Sergei Prokofiev
** Yozakura: Piano Sonata No. 14 (Moonlight Sonata), by Beethoven
** Shiki: The Four Seasons, by Vivaldi
** Minori: The Nutcracker, by Tchaikovsky
* ZettaiRyouiki: In their school uniforms in ''Shinovi Versus'', all girls are Grade A but the socks are so high up into their skirts that you would easily mistake them for wearing ProperTightsWithASkirt unless you view them from a bottom-up angle in the Dressing Room or when they are knocked down and/or have their skirts ripped. However this gets averted in ''Estival Versus'' as the girls really are wearing ProperTightsWithASkirt instead.

-->''Snow conceals everything. Anger, sorrow, pleasure, joy...''

A third year and the leader at Death Cram School. She's the granddaughter of Kurokage, the rival of the legendary ninja Hanzo. As the "snow" in her name would suggest, she has a cool personality.

Her parents encountered a ninja and were quickly disposed of, along with the other girls at Death Cram School she was raised by Kurokage.

For the purpose of challenging Asuka, the granddaughter of Hanzo who is her grandfather's rival, she takes part in Hanzo's "school festival".

Utilizing the movements of her skill in Japanese dancing, she attacks using ice techniques.

** [[spoiler: She also loses her KnightTemplar attitude after seeing how Imu was ready to risk her life to save an injured Miyabi after Yumi defeated her and then trading blows with Homura who said that she views Asuka as a rival and how they push each other.

* TheRival: Yumi believes Asuka is no longer fit to become a good ninja for allowing Homura to live.
* ShipperOnDeck: [[spoiler: Seeing how determined Homura is to help Asuka, she asks if the two are lovers. Homura [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend (very loudly)]] says they aren't, but it doesn't stop her from teasing Asuka about it [[ShipTease (who doesn't seem to mind so much).]]]]
* SillyReasonForWar: By the end of the game, she knows the reasons behind her personal vendetta against Asuka are shallows, but as a shinobi she has to fight to the end.

-->''Don't worry. You...You don't have to be nice. I kn-kn-know how I look, all right? I get it!''

A third year at Gessen Girls Academy & daughter of the Tairo Corporation CEO. Due to her shy personality, she wears a mask to hide her face. With the mask on, however, she becomes ''very'' bloodthirsty. In the event where she isn't wearing her mask, because of her introverted personality and shy nature, she gets very nervous and speaks extremely fast. She will use anything to hide her face (even garbage bags).

Her weapons are a large cleaver and spear. Swinging the cleaver downwards very quickly results in an extremely heavy blow. She also has the ability to summon her pet wolf, Daigoro, along with other wolves, in her ninja arts.

-> Date of Birth: 8th of October
-> Age: 18
-> Blood Type: B
-> Height: 172 cm (5'7")
-> Measurements: B96, W58, H85 (38-23-33)
-> Hobby: Drawing manga.
-> Favorite Food: Rice cake.
-> Ninja Animal: Wolf
-> Weapon: Spear and giant cleaver
-->[-VA: Creator/HisakoKanemoto, (Japanese)-]
----
* {{Adorkable}}: Not only does she love drawing manga, but she also happens to be a huge Sengoku Super Wars fangirl.
* AttackAnimal: She uses a pair of wolf summons in combat. Whether they count as NobleWolves or SavageWolves probably depends on where you stand with relation to Murakumo herself.
* {{Badass}}: Possibly the deadliest shinobi girl, as long as she keeps her mask on.
* BeneathTheMask: Pun ''very much'' intended. The rude, abusive girl who wears the mask is actually a ridiculously shy moeblob underneath.
* BerserkButton: If you manage unmask her but she then re-masks herself, she will take revenge on you for doing that.
* {{BFS}}: Her gigantic blood-stained cleaver.
* CharacterDevelopment: In ''New Wave'', Murakumo's newer card art has been showing her going without her mask more and more frequently without panicking or getting nervous. In the ''Versus'' series, however, [[StatusQuoIsGod you can probably expect her to stay cagey]].
* CoolPet: Daigoro and Kotaro are not just her attack animals, they're also her pet wolves too.
* DashAttack / VideogameDashing
* DefeatByModesty: Overlaps with DontLookAtMe. Defeating her always results in her mask being knocked off. At which point, she then lacks any willpower to continue fighting and instead proceeds to hide her face and run away. The most prominent example is when she was about to finish off Asuka in the Hanzo Story in ''Shinovi Versus'', only for Ikaruga to [[BigDamnHeroes come to her rescue]] by swiping her mask off. The resulting reaction was expected.
* DontLookAtMe: She'll usually tell people to do this if her mask is off.
* FamilyHonor: The reason why she was adopted second time was because the head of Tairo Corporation did not have worthy heirs (Murakumo is just a distant relative) and adopted her because he saw Houo Organization do the same with Ikaruga. She didn't take it that well and hated Ikaruga for this.
* FatalFlaw: Taking off her mask in general. She would've killed Asuka if it hadn't been for [[BigDamnHeroes Ikaruga swiping her mask off]]. Without it, she pretty much covered her face and left herself defenseless for Katsuragi to scare her off.
* ForSCIENCE: She tries to get Shiki's support to practice and get some inspiration for the romance bits of her newest manga. Shiki flees for her life.
* GlassCannon / FragileSpeedster
* HugeSchoolgirl: At 172 cm (5'07") tall she is the tallest female playable character so far (not counting New Wave). Slightly taller than even Daidouji, though she happens to look larger as a dramatic effect.
* IconicItem: Her Hannya mask[[note]]A Hannya mask is used in Noh theater and Shinto and Buddhist ceremonial dances. They portray the spirits of jealous women and are used to represent the complexity of emotions[[/note]], which serves as something of an emotional crutch (see Split Personality below). In the New Wave card game, she has an alternate tiger mask that she sometimes carries.
* KnifeNut: Carries a large butcher's cleaver into battle, which she treats as though it were AnAxeToGrind.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WP-pzUZsjak&list=UUZe8fFTOngzT1odz5lLEumg Masked Princess]]
* LimitBreak:
** Kotarou
** Kagerou
** Daigorou Cut
* MotorMouth: A symptom of anxiety that arises when she doesn't have her mask.
* PowerupMount: How her [[LimitBreak Ultimate Hidden Ninpo]] works. She rides on the back of a giant white wolf who then proceeds to bulldoze over her enemies.
* RecurringBoss: Is fought a total of ''four'' times in the Hanzo Story in ''Shinovi Versus''. Three times by Ikaruga and once by Asuka.
* ShrinkingViolet: So absolutely, desperately shy that, if she can't have her mask, she'll hide her head with a ''trash bag''.
* ShortRangeLongRangeWeapon: By Ryobi, in the New Hebijo storyline.
* ShoutOut: Two of her mangas she has written are named [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar "Mask of the South"]] and [[Literature/DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep "Do 2D Girls Dream of Electric Toasters?"]].
* SplitPersonality: Rude and bloodthirsty when she has her mask on; puts Hibari to shame on the moeblob race without it.
* TheUnSmile: Pulls one off after the end of her story mode.
* VocalDissonance: With her mask off, she speaks in high-pitched and [[MotorMouth rapid]] tone. With her mask on, she speaks with an affected ContraltoOfDanger.

-->''Kicking is for men and girls with no shame. A real lady knows how to use her fists, and look good doing it.''

A second year at Gessen Girls Academy. She has a very serious demeanor and isn't very good at understanding jokes. She doesn't approve of twisted things, nor things that get out of hand. When she comes across either of these two things her home dialect/accent unintentionally comes out. On both hands she wields special gauntlets that change size and cover her hands and wrist. Heavy blows are her specialty.

She's the oldest of 12 brothers and sisters. With her mother killed during a mission as a shinobi, she had to raise her young siblings by herself. After her father's death a year later, however, Yozakura was separated from her relatives. After escaping, she met with the master Kurokage and he told her, "I'll give you the strength to protect what is important to you." She accepted with the condition that she gets to reunite with her brothers and sisters again.

-> Date of Birth: 5th of April

-> Ninja Animal: Wild Boar
-> Weapon: Giant Gauntlets
-->[-VA: Creator/KaoriIshihara, (Japanese)-]
----
* AnimalMotifs: Her ninja animal is the wild boar.
* BareYourMidriff: Her ninja outfit is a kimono-like two-piece ensemble that shows off her belly.
* BoomHeadShot: [[spoiler:How she goes out in Hebijo's story mode, courtesy of Ryona.]]
* CherryBlossomGirl: An interesting, somewhat darker play on the trope. [[MeaningfulName Her name means]] "Cherry Trees in the Evening".
* CloseRangeCombatant
* TheComicallySerious: Couldn't understand a joke if you dangled it in front of her face.
* DontSplitUsUp: The oldest of twelve siblings, who was PromotedToParent after their mother and father were killed in battle. Her desperation to keep her family together led her to become a Shinobi herself.
* DuelToTheDeath[=/=]ICanStillFight[=/=]DeathSeeker: While fighting Katsuragi.
* {{Expy}}: To Kanna Tanigawa from ''Anime/WaitingInTheSummer''.
* ExtremityExtremist: She uses only punch-based attacks, which are in direct contrast to Katsuragi's kick-based attacks.
* GroundPunch: One of her attacks.
* HandBlast: At higher levels of activity, Yozakura's gauntlets start releasing concussive shockwaves. Two of her [[LimitBreak Ninpo]] fire large blasts of energy.
* HiddenDepths: Yozakura is very good at being a caretaker for others. This is evident in her flashback where she's able to take care of her 12 younger siblings all by herself and her role as a mother figure toward the rest of her team. She also ask the Instructor, in New Wave, if he/she has any siblings of their own.
* HumongousMecha: Her new [[LimitBreak Ultimate Hidden Ninpo]] in ''Estival Versus'' has her gauntlets transform into a giant gold-coated robot whom Yozakura pilots inside a glass cockpit, proceeding to punch the living hell out of her enemies with its oversized fists.
* InsaneTrollLogic: Yozakura has very ''weird'' standards; she isn't against groping, so long its done right. The two times she says you can grope someone are behind closed doors with the one you love... or on a mission with unsuspecting guard. Because doing it all the time 'cheapens the whole thing'.
** Also, she states kicking is only for men or uncouth girls; feminine women punch things instead.
* KamehameHadoken: Hell Paradise Ten Thousand Hand Fist
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNPwikdL4TM Floral Freedom]]
* LimitBreak:
** 1,000 Palm Fists of Paradise

** Namu Amida (''Shinovi Versus'')
** Shin Namu Amida (''Estival Versus'')
* MassiveNumberedSiblings: She has about eleven other siblings, with her saying that she and the rest of her siblings were born in a span of nine years.
* MightyGlacier: Very good offense, but very slow movement and attack speed.
* PromotionToParent: After her mother died, Yozakura was forced to act as a parent to all of her younger siblings. She was demoted when her father died.
* PowerFist: While already devastating, her gauntlets can double in size to fire blasts of energy.
* RapidfireFisticuffs: Enhanced by a pair of PowerFist gauntlets.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Minori's red oni.
* ShapingYourAttacks: The last of her Ninpo releases a giant pair of energy fists that will swing around and smash anything in range.
* TeamMom: In the earliest part of ''Shinovi Versus''' Gessen storyline, there's some friendly dispute between her and Yumi over who the team leader actually is, since Yozakura is clearly this.
* TelescopingRobot: Notice how large her gloves are already? They can grow even larger.
* TrickedOutGloves: She uses giant iron gauntlets to fight (imagine PowerFist meets ArmCannon or PileBunker, minus the spike). [[ImpossiblyCoolWeapon She likes her weapons so much]] than she go to great lengths to prove their effectiveness to a skeptical Yumi.
** Not only that, but she also reveals that the weapons were made with a pair of greaves, but she has no idea where they ended up. Go ahead and ''guess'' who's using them.
** Apparently, her previous weapon was the spear.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
* YouKilledMyFather: She shares a more complex variation on this trope with Katsuragi.

A first year at Death Cram School. She speaks like a gal girl and gets into things easily, as well as her ninja friends. She has a lot of friends that she likes to hang out with and won't pass up the opportunity to go shopping. Despite her appearance, she is very studious & IT savvy. Wielding a disc-shaped scythe larger than her body, her flashy attack style involves hacking foes and summoning bats. Shiki also specializes in poisoning her adversaries.

----
* BadassBookworm: Shiki has an obsession towards the Heart Sutra. She also insists on reading Mirai's novel after defeating her, and spares her life so she can finish writing it.
* BeautyMark: On the bottom right side of her lips.
* ButNotTooForeign: [[AllThereInTheManual Official Design Works]] reveal that her mother was Japanese but her father was Romanian.
* CuteWitch[=/=]HotWitch: One half of her Shinobi outfit's theme.
* DumbBlonde: [[DefiedTrope Defied]]. She tells Yagyu that "just 'cause I'm blonde doesn't mean I don't notice things, you know?"
* GeniusBruiser[=/=]WarriorTherapist: Shiki has extensive knowledge of many ninja arts and techniques. With that knowledge, she's able to deduce what kind of techniques her opponents possess and how they can use them. Additionally, Shiki's very good at giving her team advice whenever they need it.
* GlassCannon: While she does possess a good damage game, Shiki suffers from having average health and defense.
* GrimReaper: The other half of her outfit's theme.
* HiddenDepths: While some of the girls are definitely this, Shiki runs with this trope. Externally, she appears to be just a very dumb valley girl who loves fashion more than being a Shinobi. As her story is revealed, however, we find out that Shiki is not only very intelligent, she embraces her grandfather's philosophy as much as the other girls, and recites the Heart Sutra as it gives her comfort.

* SexyWhateverOutfit: Her outfit is basically a {{Stripperific}} version of a Witch Outfit mixed in with Grim Reaper themes.
* SinisterScythe
* SmarterThanYouLook: More serious than what her looks (a fashion-obsessed girl who loves to play with her friends) may suggest.
* TheSocialExpert
* ThemeNaming: Her Ninja Arts are puns based on different Buddhism sayings.
* ValleyGirl: Of the Kogal kind. She is an outgoing and casual girl who is fashionable, wears more makeup than most of the other girls and can be seen chatting on her cellphone quite a bit, so she qualifies. Unlike most examples however she is not dumb. Look at SmarterThanYouLook.
* VaporWear: Her turnover outfit seems to be made of her bats, completely going nude to summon them all to attack for her in her Ultimate Ninpo. [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Just like Morrigan Aensland]].
* VocalDissonance: Look at Shiki's face. Those sharp eyes, the Beauty Mark, even her transformation showcasing a Grim Reaper theme, her ninja costume which seems to be made of garterbelts only, none of this would prepare you for the voice she has - it sounds like that of a small child.

** Strawberry Rainbow Slide
* OneOfTheKids
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Yozakura's blue

[[quoteright:152:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kagura_thousand_year_festival_executives_emblem.png]]
[[caption-width-right:152:The Shamans]]

A group of shaman shinobi formed by Asuka's grandmother and the Mikagura sisters.

!!Related to all Kagura Festival shinobi:
* DragonWithAnAgenda: [[spoiler:The Mikagura Sisters are essentially this to Sayuri. While Sayuri's original plan was to force the shinobi girls into the Shinobi Bon Dance so she can teach them her own beliefs of being a Kagura, the sisters only want to meet a certain shinobi girl they've met in their childhood who died fighting a Youma, and even then, they only participate just to stall time so they can search for her. Keeping it a secret from Sayuri over fears that she may find out about it. Once they do make contact with the girl (sort of), her voice convinces the sisters to pursue their own path to becoming a Kagura, prompting them to participate in the Shinobi Bon Dance more seriously.]]
* UnexpectedCharacter: They managed to pull this off twice. The first time was their reveal in Famitsu magazine during Estival Versus' development period, while the second time comes from their addition to ''New Wave''.

[[caption-width-right:350: She's still got it.]]

-->''Welcome to the Kagura Thousand-Year Festival, young Shinobi.''

The wife of the eponymous Hanzo Academy’s founder and Asuka’s grandmother. Strong enough to put even Hanzo in his place, Sayuri is a tremendously powerful woman who still has a soft spot for her granddaughter. Lately, she’s been traveling around the country alongside the Mikagura sisters as a priestess for the festival. She was also once the target of Kurokage’s affections, over which Hanzo routinely fought him over years and years ago.

-> Age: 81
-> Blood Type: B
-> Height: 155cm
-> Measurements: B75, W60, H69.
-> Hobbies: Travel and fashion
-> Favorite Food: Rice cake stuffed with bean jam
-> Ninja Animal: African Elephant
-> Weapon: Giant pipe
-->[-VA: Reiko Suzuki (Japanese)-]
----
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: She asks each of the girls if they could readily put aside their emotions in order to [[ColdEquation make the best choice]] when in life-or-death situations.
* AscendedExtra: In Burst, Asuka used her name as a threat against Hanzo when he was being perverted at the hot springs. In Estival Versus, she makes a full appearance as a boss character of all things.
* BerserkButton: Do not threat her like she was some old hag unless you want to be blown away by her.
* BlowYouAway: She mainly fights by generating gusts of wind and tornadoes.
* CastFromLifespan: She uses a special Shinobi Transformation which has the unfortunate side-effect of shaving off the user's overall lifespan.
* ClothingDamage: Averted, you cannot tear away her clothes. [[FanDisservice Probably for the best]].
* DualAgeModes: Can transfrom from her old woman self to back to her prime as a young adult.
* FountainOfYouth: She's able to make her appear younger. [[spoiler: Which is contrast to Kagura]].
* FreudianExcuse: She's pretty pushy about the girls learning to suppress their emotions in order to better fight Yoma. [[spoiler: It's thanks to her teammates getting killed by a Yoma when she hesitated while trying to decide whether she should prioritize saving them or killing the Yoma. The Yoma managed to both kill her teammates and escape thanks to her hesitation.]]
* IconicItem: Her pipes; in her old age, she'll ride her giant pipe like a witch's broomstick (side-saddle, even).
%%* MightyGlacier
* NeverMessWithGranny: Keep in mind that this is the same woman who can make even ''Hanzo'' submit to her just by the mentioning of her name alone. Asuka's threatening to tell Sayuri about Hanzo's DirtyOldMan antics [[KnowWhenToFoldEm is more than enough to stop him cold]].
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: She calls the girls naive idiots when they argue against her ArmorPiercingQuestion, but urges them to find their own path nonetheless.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: It pretty much runs in the family.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Downplayed. Notice how Sayuri's clothes echo the color scheme of Asuka's shinobi uniform (yellow shirt, green dress, red ScarfOfAsskicking).
* TeleportSpam: Boy, does she love to disappear in and out of the battlefield using her wind techniques.

!Jasmine

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5894bae4150943c36b4d392fa944b3d3.jpg]]

-->''All right, now I’m serious. When you see me like this, call me Jasmine!''

Sayuri’s Shinobi Transformation form. Unlike other characters, her transformation affects not just her clothing, but also the age of her body so as to maintain optimal control over her power. Her weapon of choice is her pipe, with which she blows smoke into enemies.

* ScarfOfAsskicking
* SmokingIsCool
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Stronger now than in her old age; on top of a similar color scheme, Jasmine's got the same black hair that Asuka does. Jasmine more or less answers the question of 'What would Asuka look like an adult?'

[[caption-width-right:302: Cuteness does not compute.]]

-->''It's summer! Festival! Fighting Time!''

The eldest daughter of the three Mikagura sisters. She has the spirit of a true Tokyoite. While sometimes strong-minded, her sex appeal remains prominent. She dislikes effeminate and cutesy things. If there’s a commotion somewhere, she’s prone to butting in and raising her own brand of hell. No matter how tense a situation gets, though, she has a sense of humor about her and uses her laughter to break across to the other side.

-->[-VA: Creator/MinamiTsuda (Japanese)-]
----
* BloodKnight
* {{Expy}}: In terms of fighting style, she shares a few similarities to Tachibana. Both fight by using drums and drumsticks of somesort, and both have electricity as their elemental affinity. The key difference between the two is that Tachibana is more quiet and reserved, while Renka is more of a rowdy tomboy.

[[caption-width-right:308: DOKAN!!]]

-->''Well, that's one. Let's head on over with a BANG!''

The middle child among the Mikagura sisters, Hanabi acts and speaks just how she thinks. An energetic and athletic girl, she’s not one for subtlety in her thinking, only able to think in a straightforward manner. Asking her any tough questions just might end up making her literally blow up. When it’s all said and done, while she’s not the sharpest tool in the shed, she’s nonetheless self-aware of her actions and feels bad when she does something wrong. She also happens to be well versed in all things pertaining to gunpowder. As for her weapon, she uses a gigantic hammer.

----
* BookDumb: Hanabi doesn't really possess the Intelligence to think critically when it counts, especially when she's asked a simple math question.
* BigBulkyBomb: She also fights with this.
* DropTheHammer: Her weapon of choice is a huge mallot.
* DumbMuscle: She packs a powerful punch with her hammer and bombs, yet has trouble thinking logically at all. In fact, she even has trouble keeping secrets for her sisters' benefits which almost lands them some close calls from Sayuri. If she tries to think though, ...well, let's just say... "[[StuffBlowingUp DOKAN!]]"
* FatalFireworks: She uses fireworks in her fighting style alongside her massive hammer.
* MeaningfulName: Her name means "fireworks", which comes from the fact that she specializes in creating them.

[[caption-width-right:296: The half-pint princess of snark herself.]]

-->''Lame excuses are for babies and if you can’t concentrate well enough, that’s just a sign of how good you really are. I think we know who wins this argument.''

Kafuru is the youngest of the Mikagura sisters. A girl with a selfish and calculating streak, she often speaks to others in a condescending manner, riling them up. Whether it’s through her fluent use of Internet slang or clever use of baby talk, her mockery knows no bounds. That being said, she knows better than to try and adopt those same mannerisms with her sisters, though she is known to tease Hanabi from time to time. She has a chest that’s neither big nor particularly small.

With her ability to use water to her advantage, Kafuru can annihilate a wide area foes. She can even summon her dolphin in some of her ninja arts.

But it also works the other way around. Whether or not she had this trait before she was killed is a mystery.

[[folder:Murasame]]

!Murasame

[[quoteright:278:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/murasame_2_4372.jpg]]

Murasame is the son of the Houou family and Ikaruga is his adopted sister. He failed to become the heir of his family's legacy due to a perceived lack of shinobi skills - something his sister has in abundance, which he used to resent her something ''fierce'' for. He wishes that the two of them could put their differences aside, but every time they are together they seem to argue. He's a fourth year at a prestigious economic university where he proves himself to be an excellent businessman.

His weapon of choice is a chain-sickle - and since he won 6th place in a weapon proficiency championship it has not left his side.

-> Date of Birth: 6th of June
-> Age: 22
-> Blood Type: O
-> Height: 180 cm
-> Measurements: B?, W?, H?.
-> Hobbies: Outdoing Ikaruga
-> Favorite Food: Curry
-> Ninja Animal: Unknown
-> Weapon: Handmade Kusarigama
-->[-VA: Creator/HirokiYasumoto (Japanese, Anime), Kanehira Yamamoto (Japanese, Game), Creator/ScottFreeman (English)-]
-----

* AxCrazy: Well, he did break into his adopted sister's bedroom, and tried to hurt her just to take back their family heirloom by force... ''twice''. He can also fly off the handle sometimes. (He's gotten much better, though).
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: He was first seen on the anime where, in line with his status as antagonist, he had a positively deranged [[http://i.imgur.com/TG60sGh.jpg aspect]]. Contrast it with his official render for [[http://i.imgur.com/b4QyDVs.png Deep Crimson]] (some time after his Heel-Face Turn) where he's a player character and looks really handsome.
* {{Bishonen}}: Say what you will about Murasame, but he's definitely a looker.
* BrotherSisterTeam: Gradually becoming more of one with Ikaruga. Notably, his only combination attack can be done with her.
* CharacterDevelopment: In Shinovi Versus [[spoiler: he starts making an active effort to get along with Ikaruga more, to the point where he attended a seminar intended to strengthen sibling bonds.]]
** On ''Deep Crimson'' [[spoiler: He follows Ikaruga to Kyoto and he puts a theatre to get Yomi and Ikaruga closer]]
* {{Fiction 500}}: While the family is prominent in the world of ninja, they are equally prominent in the world of finance. While he sucks at being a shinobi, he excels at business, which his father recognizes.
* GenderSwap: In ''Estival Versus'' there will be a ''female'' version of Murasame available, identical in almost every way to standard Murasame except with visible cleavage. [[spoiler:April Fool's!]]
* GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger: Gives a Phoenix Wright style one to Ikaruga and Yomi.
* GreenEyedMonster: He was an excellent example back in the day, burning over the resentment of being a no-talent that had to be replaced. He successfully managed to convince himself that Ikaruga ''stole'' Hien from him. (He just as notably worked himself ''out'' of this).
* HarmlessVillain: Back when he was still consumed with his grudge over Ikaruga displacing him as heir to the family's AncestralWeapon ''Hien'', he once broke into Ikaruga's room and foolishly challenged her for Hien. She dropped him through a trapdoor.
* HiddenDepths: Despite his incompetence as a ninja, he is actually a phenomenal student and businessman.
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: He's quite insecure about how he pales as a shinobi to Ikaruga, and constantly tries to prove himself to be better than she is. He does end up taking comfort with the fact that he can say he's smarter than she is with him graduating a business course in college.
* JapaneseSiblingTerminology: Despite his grudge against her, Ikaruga still feels conflicted about the situation as she simply just wants to get along with him. She even refers to him as Onii-sama.
* JerkAss: Despite character development, he's still full of himself.
* JokeCharacter: Very much so in ''Senran Kagura 2''. He's got a massive case of WhatTheFuAreYouDoing, suffers the exact same ClothingDamage mechanics as the girls (down to a single pair of white bikini briefs), has only one special and one CombinationAttack (in which Ikaruga does most of the work), no Shinobi Transformation to speak of, and still manages to be a pompous twit nonetheless. In a world with competent and lethal shinobi, he can somehow manage to hold his own.
** LethalJokeCharacter: Surprisingly though, Murasame is actually quite useful as a support character. A lot of his attacks have MercyInvincibility (which normally occurs for the rest of the cast only during their specials); one example is his heavy aerial attack (head-diving straight down and getting stuck up to his neck), which has so much MI, it can be used to avoid multiple attacks. And his heavy attack (swinging his sickle around multiple times) has range what only some Secret Ninja Arts can match, allowing him to shred mooks into pieces all around himself.
* TheKlutz: He's considered a failure for a reason. Most of his moves involve some combination of hitting himself or tripping.
* LateArrivalSpoiler: ''Deep Crimson'' naturally assumes you know about his HeelFaceTurn in ''Shinovi Versus''.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0rRI0xVD6k Power of 6th Place]]
* LimitBreak:
** Hien Housen: Mode Zero
** The Best Combination (With Ikaruga, ''Deep Crimson'')
* LimpAndLivid: The fact that Murasame is almost ''always'' in this position says a lot about his personality.
* MilesGloriosus: Talks a big game and is ''incredibly'' confident in himself, but is thoroughly outclassed by almost everyone.
* MrFanservice: WordOfGod [[http://www.siliconera.com/2014/06/27/senran-kagura-producer-fan-service-male-character-senran-kagura-2/ stated]] that Murasame gets the same sexy treatment that the girls get. He even mentions perusing certain material in order to get the form right for Murasame's {{fanservice}} scenes.
* OldSaveBonus: You can unlock him in ''Deep Crimson'' with data from a ''Burst'' save. Otherwise, he's DLC.
* TheOneGuy: While not the only male character, he ''is'' the only playable one currently.
* PaperTiger: Just from a glance you could be forgiven for mistaking him for cool and competent, when in reality he's a pompous loser with next to no skill.
* ProgressivelyPrettier: He has two major phases of design, (1) deranged BeadyEyedLoser and (2) MrFanservice.
* PromotedToPlayable: ''Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson'' marks his first playable appearance, as well as the first male to be playable in the series.
* SatelliteCharacter: More or less defined solely by his relationship with Ikaruga.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: In ''Shinovi Versus'' he mentions that the family is a major donor to the school and so he can practically waltz his way in to the secret ninja school by simply name-dropping ''himself''. This is presumably how he snuck into Ikaruga's room earlier in the series.
* StockNinjaWeaponry: He uses a Kusarigama with (perhaps) some skill.
* TallDarkAndHandsome: Following his character development, he's become quite good looking.
* {{Tsundere}}: He ''does'' care about his sister, he's just very hesitant to show it.
* TheUnfavorite: [[spoiler:His family thinks he's good for nothing and not capable of inheriting their heirloom katana Hien. Which was why they adopted Ikaruga, who was far more talented, meaning her to inherit the blade and succeed the family as a strong shinobi. He was ''not pleased'' with this, and tried to take Hien from Ikaruga, believing himself to be the rightful inheritor. His efforts were always futile.]]
* UpperClassTwit: Even after his Heel-Face Turn, he's still a pompous twit. If he doesn't know who you are (even if you happen to be ''Master Hanzo himself''), he'll assume your name wasn't worth knowing in the first place.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: He wears an open coat, which is his only outfit.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Desperately seeks his father's approval, to the point of madness. Proving himself as an outstanding businessman gained him some respect, which in turn made him a nicer guy, but he's still clearly got a chip on his shoulder.
* WhatTheFuAreYouDoing: Playable or no, his parents weren't exactly wrong when they decided he was [[TheKlutz lacking in talent]]. In ''Deep Crimson'', a lot of his combos involve him attacking wildly, kicking dirt, tripping over his chains or getting wrapped up in them. Heck, he'll whack himself in the head ''during his IdleAnimation''.

A young girl whose name happens to have great significance in the shinobi world. While on a school trip, Asuka and her friends found her being chased by yōma and saved her. At first glance, she speaks like a child, but she says things that no child would. Lacking almost any ability to defend herself, she relies on her guardian Naraku for protection.

* DemonSlaying: [[spoiler: Kagura's entire existence is devoted to the eradication of Yoma. It's implied that the highest shinobi rank, Kagura (given to shinobi who specialize in Yoma Hunting), is named after her.]]
** [[spoiler: Though it's worth noting the Kagura rank has only been brought up in the ''Versus'' games, and it's unclear if it exists in ''Deep Crimson'''s timeline. Although the evidence so far points towards the Kagura rank not existing. On ''Deep Crimson'' Hinin is the highest rank "on the record books", while Hanzo states during his fight with Dougen that the resurrection orb would grant him power comparable to a Hinin without all the effort and training required for it]]
* DualAgeModes: Has the ability switch between a little girl, a teenager, and an adult.
* EmotionalMaturityIsPhysicalMaturity: [[spoiler:Even though she is over 900 years old (overall age) or less than year old (current reincarnation), her mental state is tied to the state of her physical form. Notable in the Waistdeep DLC where when she reverts from her adult form to her child form, her mentality is reverted back to that of a child.]]

* PhlebotinumOverdose: [[spoiler:If she keeps on consuming Red Orbs even after she is fully awakened, she will cause a massive explosion before turning back into the Reincarnation Orb]].
* PromotedToPlayable: She and Naraku were confirmed to be upcoming DLC characters in Estival Versus.
* PsychoticSmirk: [[spoiler:Her third and final forms both have this as her expression in their artwork, but it's not really seen in-game until Estival Versus.]]
* SpaceMaster: [[spoiler:Her powers is described as her being able to manipulate space, which she uses to create portals to fire black-red blades, teleport and even "[[InterfaceScrew flip the world upside down]]".]]

* WalkingSpoiler: Hoo, boy.

The FinalBoss of Skirting Shadows, and the final [[WombLevel stage]] of Crimson Girls. In Shinovi Versus, Orochi is revealed to be a Yoma summoned by Dōgen to be used as a weapon of war.
----
* BossRush: In Crimson Girls, you must fight each of the possessed Hebijo students after defeating Asuka.
* CameBackStrong:In a fashion, the creature you face on ''Burst'' and ''Deep Crimson'' first chapter is an incomplete version. The second time you face it, is its true form.
* DemonicPossession: Does this to the Hebijo students in Crimson Girls, requiring Homura to defeat her comrades in order to set them free. Implied to also be the case in Skirting Shadows.
* DemotedToExtra: The closest thing it gets to an appearance in the anime is a three-minute cameo as Dōgen's Ninpo, "Giant Serpent".
* EldritchAbomination: Where to start? It seems to be one-third humanoid giant, one-third dragon, and one-third Humongous Mecha. Four of its five necks have no heads on them, instead ending in great masses of bloodstained katanas. It has two bizarre mechanical appendages that can only be described as giant tennis rackets covered in bloodstained katanas. On its central neck is the head of a mecha-dragon, covered in bloodstained katanas, and in the head's mouth is a human face, contorted with rage. Oh, and the sound of its roar is mixed with a baby crying.
** EldritchLocation: Its insides, see WombLevel below. It's a weird red version of the normal world with odd features like floating interfaces in the background and rotating gears on the floor. It also has inexplicable grassy meadows and you can hear Orochi's heartbeat wherever you go.
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: In Crimson Girls, regardless of which character you select the mission with, you will always control Homura during the brief "meadow sequences" leading to the fight against each possessed Hebijo student.
* GiantSpaceFleaOutOfNowhere: You thought that Crimson Homura was the final boss of ''Skirting Shadows''? Nope! Have a EldritchAbomination instead.
* {{Orochi}}: Probably one of the more horrifying renditions of the good old eight-headed serpent.
* TailSlap: A really powerful one at that. In ''Burst'', it can shred through half of your clothing bar in one strike.
* TookALevelInBadass: A curious example since it happens both in-universe and from a gameplay design.
** Its first appearance on ''Burst'' has it like an static boss with a limited range of attacks. ''Deep Crimson'' retelling of that battle overhauls its moveset completely, giving it mobility and a whole new set of attacks.
** Plot-wise, the creature you face is an incomplete form, with its complete form making an appearance on the final chapter of ''Deep Crimson'' as one of the hardest bosses on the franchise.
* WalkingSpoiler: There is a lot what can be said about her(?) and one of them isn't expected.
* WarmUpBoss: Oddly enough, the tutorial for Crimson Girls pits it against Homura in a nightmare sequence.
* WaveMotionGun: One of its attacks is a massive laser beam that can only be avoided by remaining airborne or hiding in a specific spot.
* WombLevel: In Crimson Girls, the final mission takes place inside its body.
* YouDontLookLikeYou: Orochi's brief appearance in the anime looks like five gigantic white worms with {{Lamprey Mouth}}s, four eyes and claws growing around the mouth and its body being covered in flames.

A second year student at Hanzo National Academy. Her grandfather Hanzō is renowned as a legendary shinobi, and is the academy’s namesake. Given her remarkable pedigree, she has a lot of hidden potential within her and bears a strong sense of justice.

No matter how hard she may try, though, she can never quite bring herself to look as intimidating as she wants to, likely due to her overall bright and positive personality. Over time, she’s become a source of immense moral support for her friends and fellow shinobi.

Her primary weapons are two wakizashis, and her Ninpo are based on toads, as well as having an affinity for Earth.

----
* AdaptationalWimp: In the games, Asuka is portrayed as a hot-blooded warrior with a constant drive to improve herself. In comparison to the anime, Asuka is a [[TheKlutz klutz]]. She also has a fear of frogs in the anime, which she doesn't have in the games (but she does get over it with a little help from Ikaruga).
* AnimalMotifs: Frogs (note that the rival school consists of ''[[AnimalJingoism Snake Girls]]''). Her ultimate ninpo
''Deep Crimson'']]

[[Characters/SenranKaguraVersus Debuted
in ''Shinovi Versus'' is to summon a giant frog that she can ride around on briefly.
* BadassAdorable
** ScarfOfAsskicking: Wears a red one on her default outfit.
* BrownEyes
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Not ''nearly'' as bad as the other girls, to the point where it's nearly nonexistent, but the intro of the anime shows she wasn't always happy with being forced to be a shinobi from a [[ChildSoldier VERY young age.]] And, while she loves her Grandpa, [[ParentalAbandonment her parents aren't anywhere to be seen either.]]
* DCupDistress: Worries that her breasts might be growing too big.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: The only ninja who runs on this more than the [[Manga/{{Naruto}} orange-clothed blondie himself]], Asuka will happily befriend literally anyone, good shinobi or bad shinobi. It's gotten to the point where Homura has realized Asuka doesn't care ''who'' she is friends with. Homura herself is a shining example of Asuka's methods, as she (whether she admits it or not) is Asuka's best friend and this friendship was forged through combat.
** Heck, Asuka herself doesn't need to win in order to apply this trope. Yumi in the Gessen route of ''Shinovi Versus'', who beat Asuka before the latter challenged to a quick rematch, straight out asks if they can be friends after the battle is over.
* DishingOutDirt: Asuka specializes in earth attacks in some of her ninja arts. This is especially evident in SK 2.
* DualWielding: Uses two wakizashis.
* FamilyHonor: Asuka's main struggle in the anime is [[WellDoneSonGuy living up to her family name]] (and more specifically, her grandfather's legacy). One interesting symptom is how the pressure caused her [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes to develop a fear of frogs]], which she hadn't really had any experience with until ninja school proper.
* FingerlessGloves
* ForGreatJustice: Being the only character without a DarkAndTroubledPast, Asuka's main reason for following the way of shinobi is to protect her friends, her family... basically everyone from the shadows. For her, there is nothing more noble than protecting this world without expecting any thanks in return.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Ikaruga utilizes this trait of hers to get her to overcome her fear of frogs in the anime.
* FriendlyEnemies: With Homura.
* GoodIsNotDumb: She seems to be GoodIsDumb at the start but shows herself to be fairly smart towards Homura.
* TheHero: Some adaptations assign her this role. In Burst she has the most overall missions aimed at her this playing this somewhat straight.
* HeroicResolve: toward her rivals.
* HideYourLesbians: given her strong feelings toward her rivals, her propension to rub herself on her female friends on official artworks, and the whole Yumi/Homura/Asuka affair in SV, it has been speculated that Asuka is a lesbian who haven't realized it yet (with training taking up the major part of her social life and all that).
** According to one mini story released to promote 'Burst' release, Asuka gave Katsuragi permission to grope her because she thought Katsuragi didn't find her attractive. This of course, was Katsuragi's plan all along.
* HotBlooded
* TheIdealist: Initially; it doesn't prevent her from taking fights very seriously, though.
* [[IdenticalGrandson Identical Granddaughter]]: [[spoiler: Asuna looks like a younger version of Jasmine, her grandmother.]]
* IfItsYouItsOkay: [[spoiler: [[ShipperOnDeck Yumi]]]] told her that Homura was in love with her, (Something that [[spoiler: Yumi]] concluded on her own) and Asuka [[ShipTease didn't seem to mind one bit.]]
* InnocentInnuendo: This little quote from ''Shinovi Versus''.
** ''I've learned a new trick! I can bite two sushi rolls at the same time! They're a little too big for my mouth, though. I can't swallow them both at once...''
* InkSuitActor: She looks like a younger and more bustier version of her voice actress.
* InSeriesNickname: Homura calls her "Jugs" in the English version of ''Burst''. HypocriticalHumor at its finest, since Homura is only about an inch smaller.
* ImageSong: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCIxBNKgJ44 Futomaki Ninja]] in ''Bon Appétit''.
* KiteRiding: Briefly demonstrated it in the anime. The "Hipster" DLC for ''Deep Crimson'' has her using one as her way of transportation.
* LaserBlade: As [[SuperMode Ultimate Asuka]], her Dual Wakizashi emits a green aura around the blades that increases their range and power.
* TheLeader

* LightningBruiser / JackOfAllTrades: She's a balanced fighter but also boosts good attack and speed and is probably the best overall character to use in combat.
** The Jack Of All Trades part is actually a significant part of her character -- she realizes that everyone else at Hanzo is better than her at ''something'', and constantly trains to try to bridge the gap.

** Dual Slash
** Hanzō Style: Full Boom

** Flying Wild Dance (With Homura, ''Deep Crimson'')
** Yell Gun (With Daidōji, ''Deep Crimson'')

* NotSoDifferent: Homura and her both have similar upbringings, but the key difference is that [[spoiler:Homura was kicked out of her home for defending herself. Had Asuka been in a similar situation, she likely could of ended up like Homura.]]
* NotAfraidToDie: Asuka explicitely state during Hebi's arc that ever since she has receveid her name as a ninja (''Asuka'' and all the other girls' names are code-names), she doesn't fear death anymore. Life and death are two sides of one coin, to live is to be prepared to die.
* SecondYearProtagonist
* ScarfOfAsskicking
* ShipTease: As mentioned above in IfItsYouItsOkay, Asuka has this with [[LesYay Homura]].
* SuperMode: She becomes "Ultimate Asuka"; it replaces her frog summon in '"Estival Versus'' as her ultimate ninpo while being own character like Crimson Homura in ''Deep Crimson''.
** As of EV, it's been subject to some mild UniquenessDecay. With Yumi and Miyabi also getting Super Modes, Asuka's SlipknotPonytail is starting to look less impressive in the face of three different examples of PowerDyesYourHair.

A third-year student at Hanzo National Academy, she is the class president and the successor to the Houou family organisation’s shinobi line. However, she is not their biological heir, which has led to numerous feuds with her adoptive brother over who should rightfully bear the family’s legacy.

She was given special classes from a very young age and can perform tea ceremonies and cook fine Japanese cuisine, but when creating new recipes on the fly, her meals are… interesting, to say the least. Though typically gentle, thoughtful and kind, she is also a very proud person; when her emotions flare, no one can lay a hand on her.

Ikaruga's primary weapon is the ''Hien''[[note]]Flying/Rising Swallow[[/note]], a family heirloom passed down to her by her father. Her Ninpo is centered around phoenixes, and has an affinity for the Fire element because of this.

----
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: She is tall, has very long black hair and is the most composed member of the class.
* AncestralWeapon: Her sword, "Hien".
* AnimalMotifs: ThePhoenix.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She's one for maintaining decency, even to her enemies. However, ''never'' insult her honor or her effort to maintain it.
* {{BFS}}: Her Nodachi, which gives her a good long range on her attacks.
* BizarreTasteInFood: Ikaruga enjoys eating ''hornet larvae boiled in soy sauce''. Apparently her father enjoyed them, so she had them many times in her childhood.
* ClassRepresentative: She's a stickler for the rules. This puts her into some clash with Yagyū
* TheComicallySerious: Her song?
* CoolBigSis: Fills this role in age and the responsible emotional-maturity that Katsuragi ''completely'' lacks.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:She was originally from a no-name, poor ninja family. She was adopted in a heritaged family to fill the role of the heir instead of the family's good-for-nothing son, and she's currently in dispute with her [[AxCrazy (completely insane)]] big brother over the inheritance of the clan.]]
* DashAttack / VideogameDashing
* DeathOfAThousandCuts
* {{Expy}}: Her fighting style resembles like the one used by [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Jin Kisaragi]]. Also overlaps with ActorAllusion, as Jin is nicknamed "The Hero of ''Ikaruga''" and he has a cousin (Tsubaki Yayoi) who is voiced by AsamiImai. Even she use an attack that resembles Jin's [[SpamAttack Reito]] and his ice attacks, except she use fire instead here (which is the opposite element of Jin's ice powers).
** Take note as well that she also shares her backstory with Jin (though Jin has it much worse), being adopted by a prestigious family (also becoming heir/inheritor to these families later on) and being class presidents/representatives in their respective schools. However, both of them have issues with jealous siblings from these families over the inheritance - with Jin being despised by his many siblings and Ikaruga being despised by her brother. Not to mention both of their [[AncestralWeapon Ancestral Weapons]] negate each other's elements.
* FamilyHonor: Ikaruga was specifically adopted into a family that would not abide its AncestralWeapon ''Hien'' being inherited by its talentless son, Murasame. According to the anime, there's no love in this arrangement; Ikaruga is simply there to protect the family from shame.
* FlamingSword: Ikaruga absorbs her phoenix into ''Hien'' using the Superb Phoenix Flash.
* FragileSpeedster: She has low defense, but is extremely damaging with attacks that cover a wide area and can do some damage quickly... ''very quickly''.
* GlassCannon: She has low defense, but is extremely damaging with attacks that cover a wide area
* HimeCut: Sports the traditional hairstyle befitting of a YamatoNadeshiko, an {{Ojou}} and a LadyOfWar with {{samurai}} tendencies.
* IaijutsuPractitioner
* ImplausibleFencingPowers: While using the Hien Phoenix Dance, Ikaruga leaps into the air, grips Hien between her feet and descends down upon her target, drilling her blade into them as she slides along the ground, causing massive damage. How this is even ''possible'' is a wonder in itself.
* InnocentInnuendo: From ''Shinovi Versus''.
** ''Length is a factor, of course, but what matters most is durability. One round is never enough. It takes ten times in a row to satisfy me. Of course, they usually break long before then, and the worst ones give you splinters. Good training swords are really hard to come by.''

* MinidressOfPower
* {{Ojou}}: Ikaruga is the descendant of a prestigious Ninja clan. [[spoiler:Just not directly, however, Ikaruga does appear to be a distant cousin of her adoptive father.]]
* PlayingWithFire: Ikaruga incorporates the element of Fire into her ninpo.
* PrinciplesZealot: She's really big on rules and discipline.
* ProperTightsWithASkirt: In her ninja outfit.
* RapunzelHair: She has long, straight, black hair flowing down to her lower thighs.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Katsuragi and Yomi's red oni.
* {{Samurai}}: She's closer to this than ninja.
* SidekickExMachina: Plays this to Murasame if you pair them up. She allows him to take the lead to feel better about himself while doing almost all of the work for him from the shadows.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Cool, composed and mature, but still a really kind and gentle girl.
* TeamMom: Doubly so as she's the only girl of adult age in her ''gumi'' (obviously, Katsuragi in SV doesn't count)
* {{Toku}}: Ikaruga performs entertainment like these under the name of ''KP Kamen'' (KP standing for "Kami no ke", hair, and "Pattsun", uniformly straight cut bangs). In the localizations, it's "BC Mask", standing for "Black hair with cut straight bangs".
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Her more refined and feminine nature makes her the girly girl to Katsuragi's tomboy.
* WeaponOfChoice: She single-handedly uses a ''Nōdachi''.
* YamatoNadeshiko: After reading this far down the list you should know why: a formal and polite lady who wields a nodachi styles her hair in a HimeCut.

A third-year student at Hanzo National Academy. She’s over-the-top and easily moved to tears, yet she has an older sister-like demeanour that’s thoroughly endeared her to the other members of her class.

There are some ways she might be too over-the-top to her classmates, however, as she tends to be very hands-on in an inappropriate manner. And while these "dirty old man" tendencies of hers can be a little embarrassing for her and anyone else around her, she also constantly strives to become stronger than her peers and spares no effort to that end. Sometimes, she becomes so dedicated to this cause that it even makes her come across as a bit stoic…

Katsuragi is particularly skilled in acrobatic and weaponless combat, particularly specialising in kicks augmented by her metal boots. Her Ninpo centers around the Chinese Dragon, and she has an affinity for Wind-element techniques.

----
* AbsoluteCleavage: Her ninja outfit.
** DigitalBikini: After ClothingDamage is applied.
* ArmedLegs: In Senran Kagura 2, her boots have retractable blades at the heel which she can use to float.
* BloodKnight: Out of all the Hanzō girls, Katsu pretty much enjoys fighting the most.
* BlowYouAway: Katsuragi incorporates the element of Wind into her techniques.
** RazorWind: The Strike Cannon.
** TornadoMove: The Tornado Spindle.
** ThisIsADrill: Dead Screw Dragon.
* BoobsOfSteel: Has the largest bosoms of the Hanzō girls, and her fighting style focuses the most on raw physical strength.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Her perverted behavior can hide the fact that she's actually a very powerful shinobi.
* DanceBattler: Some her moves incorporate break dancing.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:She is fighting to [[ToBeAMaster prove herself the strongest]] and re-establish the lost honor of her family, after her parents refused to kill Kurokage. The catch is that [[LastOfHerKind she hasn't seen them for years and they could perfectly have been dead for all this time]].]]
** [[spoiler:It turns out that her parents are alive, but must fight to save them in the Battle Royale.]]
** [[spoiler:It gets even worse as Katsuragi either has to kill Yozakura to free her parents or they will die if she doesn't. She makes the decision of sacrificing her parents to keep Yozakura alive because she knows that her parents wouldn't want her to make that choice.]]
* DifficultButAwesome: Being the [[MightyGlacier type of character she is]], she controls rather stiffly compared to the other Hanzō girls. Not only that, it's trickier to pull a long chain of combos most of the time. However, if one were to get the hang of Kat's FoeTossingCharge and timing to keep a steady combo, she can be very deadly.
* DontThinkFeel: This is her ''excuse'' for entering the cooking tournament in ''Bon Appetit''.
* DragonsUpTheYinYang: Her ninja animal is the dragon after all.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Well, it's not as if Asuka put up a lot of resistance toward Katsu-nee's attentions.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning[=/=]SpinAttack: Several of Katsuragi's attacks incorporating spinning or drilling motions into them. While the most notable is the Tornado Spindle, one of the most impressive is the Dead Screw Dragon , which involves channeling an energy dragon around her body and spinning while drilling into her target.
* {{Expy}}: A blonde-haired, hotblooded shinobi who loves ramen, is rather perverted, ''rarely thinks about her actions before she does it'', [[spoiler:lost both of her parents at an early age]], and utilises the Wind element in their techniques? Sounds quite a lot like [[Manga/{{Naruto}} another hot-blooded, blonde ninja from another series]].
* ExtremityExtremist: Almost all of her attacks are kick based.
* FingerPokeOfDoom: Katsuragi's Strike Cannon flicks her middle fingers with enough force to create ''RazorWind''.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: In the anime, she slaps Ikaruga when she starts to panic about how she can't undo the Shinobi Kekkai barrier.
* GoldenSuperMode: While everyone has this in ''Burst'', as the use of Life or Death mode (Frantic in localizations) gives the girls a surging golden aura, Katsuragi, with her hotblooded nature and love of fighting, as well as golden hair and green eyes, deserves her own personal mention. Why? ''She looks and fights like a Super Saiyan.''
* HairDecorations
* HypocriticalHumor: Doesn't like being groped. She also doesn't like seeing people sexually harass others, despite doing it ''all the time''.
-->'''Katsuragi:''' I'm always up for copping a good feel, but I can't stand seeing sexual harassment. I think you need an ass-kicking, self-defense style!
* HotBlooded: She brings skinship to a whole new level: if someone won't open their heart to her the social way, then it's duel time.
* IdiotHero: Subtlety is not her forte.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons
* InSeriesNickname: Katsu-nee (Kat in the English localization), but only by Asuka.
* JapanesePronouns: Uses "atai", of all things. It typically indicates straightforwardness (re: [[{{VideoGame/Touhou}} Cirno]]).
* KickChick: Equips greaves by her feet.

* LimitBreak:
** Cross Panzer
** Tornado Spindle
** Dead Screw Dragon
** Strike Cannon (Aerial, ''Burst'')
** Bloody Dragon (Aerial, ''Deep Crimson'')
** Hikage Strike (With Hikage, ''Deep Crimson'')
** Cool Your Head (With Ikaruga, ''Deep Crimson'')
* MagicSkirt: Obviously not seen anywhere, but here's a variation; try a Magic ''Shirt''. Despite it just being a normal unbuttoned shirt, [[NippleAndDimed it never reveals her nipples]]. You could swear the damn thing's glued on.
** When it's destroyed, she has a bizarre breast-harness under it that shouldn't be able to stay on without the aid of either magic or lots of body tape. To make things even more magic, the thing's very existence contradicts her insistence that she doesn't wear anything under her uniform.
* MightyGlacier: High attack but a bit slow.
* NotQuiteFlight: In ''Shinovi Versus'', Katsuragi is one of the few characters capable of limited gliding. While unexplained in anyone else, for Katsuragi, her gliding may actually stem from her Wind abilities.
* PantyShot: The source of almost all of them in the anime. [[SchoolgirlLesbians She doesn't mind.]]
* RapunzelHair: She has blond hair that flows all the way down to her waist.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Ikaruga and Hikage's blue oni.
* {{Schoolgirl Lesbian|s}}: When someone transfers to the ninja class, the first thing she looks up is the size of the newbie's boobs.
** She outright says that she prefers flirting with girls to romance with guys.
* SignatureLaugh: ''EEE SHI SHI SHI SHI''
* SkinshipGrope: Accepted as a [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight daily occurence]] in Hanzo. The only one who minds is Yagyū, and [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlFriend only when]] [[BigSisterInstinct she does it to Hibari]].
* {{Stripperiffic}}: For some reason, she rarely buttons her shirt. [[spoiler:This has to do with the fact that Ikaruga slashed open those buttons when she first opened to her. Being unbuttoned is a symbol of relationship.]]
* ThouShaltNotKill: in ''Shinovi Versus'', she is is really torn when Yozakura refuses to yield after their fight, claiming she will continue fighting till Katsuragi kills her; the catch is Katsuragi has to win her fight to save her parents. She regains her composure when Hikage tell her she much prefers the Katsuragi who have mindless fun when fighting.
* {{Tomboy}}: She's described as this, but it's more like she's a perverted boy born into a feminine-looking girl's body.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Her hotblooded and brash attitude makes her the tomboy to Ikaruga's girly girl.
* TrickedOutShoes: Not only are her greaves razor-sharp, they can also pull out what are essentially wind spurs.
* {{Underboobs}}: featured gloriously in episode 4 of the anime adaptation.
* VocalDissonance: Her voice is fairly deep for a girl whose supposed to be 18.
** It actually tends to vary, her deeper voice only seems to come out when she's feeling particularly hot-blooded or shocked
* WeaponOfChoice: Metal boots.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Her moves are either kickboxing, or this. Her [[PhantomZone Shinobi Barrier]] is a ''wrestling ring''.

A first-year student at Hanzo National Academy. She’s only just begun her training this year, yet she knows that the shinobi world is ruthless and is fully prepared to accept that way of life. This resolution is born from the considerable power she wields, but it’s approval she seeks above all else; she exists to be acknowledged by her fellow shinobi class members.

Although she’s rather taciturn most days, her need for acceptance occasionally causes her to come across as lonely. Being the same age as Hibari, the two of them have formed something of a sisterly bond, making Hibari one of the few people to whom she’ll willingly open up to.

Her primary weapon is the bladed oilpaper umbrella she always carries on her. Her Ninpo is centered around squids, and she has an affinity for the Rain-element.

* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: Yagyū will ''always'' save Hibari, no matter how much hell she has to go through to do it.
-->'''Yagyū:''' I don't mind you leaning on me. Anytime you call... I-I'll come running...
* BerserkButton: Do '''NOT''', in any way, harm Hibari. Doing so is a certified death wish. Even jokingly, as Katsuragi found out in an early scene in SV. Apparently, Yagyū is the only one who can stop Katsu-nee's "friendly" gropings.
* TheBerserker: Especially if Hibari is in danger.
* BigSisterInstinct: The reason she's so protective of Hibari. [[spoiler:Yagyu had a little sister who died in a car accident. Hibari happens to look identical to her so Yagyu became extremely attached to her and swore to protect her.]]
* CatchPhrase: ''Anshin shiro: Hibari wa Ore ga mamoru. ("Fear not: I will protect you, Hibari.")''
* ChildProdigy: She's very young and her shinobi potential is massive. And she has the attitude to match.
* CombatTentacles: Some of her normal attacks has her using a squid tentacle, and she can summon one to do the same.
* CovertPervert: Where she is usually really stoic, she can have some perverted fantasies about Hibari, usually accompanying with her nose bleeding.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:She used to have a little sister named Nozomi, who died in a car accident years ago. The deceased sister [[ReplacementGoldfish looked exactly like Hibari]].]]
* DeclarationOfProtection: Frequently, toward Hibari.
* EvilEye: Yagyu's eyepatch conceals her right eye. Shiki refers to this as the 'Devil's Eye', a ninja art that seals a Secret Ninja Art into the user's eye, and is repressed with an eyepatch. When the eyepatch is removed, it activates Yagyu's Ultimate Secret Ninja art, causing her eyes to glow a deep crimson an expel cuttlefish tentacles.
* EyepatchOfPower: [[spoiler:She wears it to remind her of her dead sister.]]
* FlyingSeafoodSpecial: In the [[ShootEmUp Hipster DLC]] for ''Deep Crimson'', her form of transportation is to fly on top of her squid summon.
* GirlishPigtails
* GlassCannon: Her defense is very low but her overall attack power is pretty good and her secret arts do a lot of damage and are perfect for fighting multiple enemies. As compared to Ikaruga, she's a bit tougher, but also a bit less damaging -- but has useful projectile attacks that Ikaruga lacks.
* HatesBeingAlone: [[spoiler:After Hibari transferred to Hebijo to get back the Super Secret Ninja Scroll, Yagyū vowed to get her back, stating she absolutely cannot be without Hibari. Yagyū is not only afraid of losing Hibari, in whom she sees her younger sister who died, but afraid of winding up alone again.]]

* LovingAShadow: [[spoiler:She became attached to Hibari because she looks exactly like her deceased little sister.]]
* MysticalWhiteHair: Her white hair hints at her mysterious personality.
* NoSenseOfHumor: She is probably the most serious about what it means to be a ninja among the Hanzō students.
* OreOnna: Uses ''exclusively'' masculine Japanese vocabulary in her normal speech, up to and including the aggressive-masculine "Ore" to refer to herself; this is considered even LESS normal and acceptable than girls using the gentle-masculine form "boku" in Japanese society.
* ParasolOfPain: Which also [[SwordCane hides a sword]], at least in anime. In the games, the ribs of the umbrella sprout out blades instead.
* TheQuietOne: Rarely say anything to anyone, except Hibari.
* RapunzelHair: Even with her GirlishPigtails, her hair still reaches way below her knees.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: With her Ultimate Secret Ninja Art; the eye that is concealed by the eyepatch, specifically.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Hibari and Mirai's red.
* ReiAyanamiExpy: White hair? Check. Red eye(s)? Check. Pale skin? Check. Wears an eyepatch? Check. Stoic and quiet demeanor? Check.
* SeriousBusiness: Even ''card games'' are serious business to Yagyū if Hibari is involved.
-->'''Yagyū:''' -directed at the Joker card which caused her to lose- Unforgivable. This is your fault, you damned jester...
* TheStoic: She's naturally very calm -- sometimes too calm, as she never revealed getting badly injured at one point.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Stoic and reserved, but very caring and protective toward Hibari.
* TragicKeepsake: A variant. Where her eyepatch didn't belong to any one, she uses [[spoiler:one of her dead sister's hair ribbons]] to tie it.
* WeaponOfChoice: [[ParasolOfPain Her umbrella]]. The trailer shows her performing ''Daikaruga''[[note]]Traditional Japanese "juggling" involving keeping a ball balanced on a spinning umbrella without letting it get thrown away by the spin.[[/note]] with a ''delivery truck''.

A first-year student at Hanzo National Academy. Although she was born into a long line of prestigious shinobi, she feels as if her skills are somewhat lacking. Espionage is her strongest suit, but she’s still a bit immature (like most blooming adults are wont to be) and tends to be the troublemaker in her shinobi class.

Still, she works hard in everything she does and is beloved by her entire class due to her single-minded attitude and entirely genuine nature.

With a deceptive fighting style, ever shifting in appearance, her Ninpo centers around rabbits, including Ninto. Hibari's elemental affinity is that of Lightning.

* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Several of her techniques.
* BadassAdorable: She's surprisingly powerful compared to her looks.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Completely subverted in ''Bon appetit'' when she ends up with so many sweets that she and Yomi can literally swim around in them and her ending concludes with the two of them still happily eating long after Hanzo had eaten himself into a coma.[[note]]Whether or not she actually made that many herself or she accidentally wished for that many as the prize for winning the contest isn't elbaorated on but the end result is the same.[[/note]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Sure Hibari is your average CuteClumsyGirl but if there's one thing to take into consideration, '''DO NOT SAY''' in front of her that "you own her"! Otherwise you'd be on the receiving end of her rage fit and will fight very seriously, as Yagyū and Haruka learned the hard way.
* BigEater: A bit of a glutton despite her small frame.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:By the BigBad in the Hebijo story]].
* BreakTheCutie: In spades in the second and third chapter of the Hanzo story. [[spoiler: She actually ends up asking Haruka to turn her into a doll with her final screw up.]] She gets better, though.

* CutenessProximity: She loves cute things. It probably influenced her Ninpo as well.
* TheChick
* CuteClumsyGirl
* CuteLittleFangs: In the manga.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: ''Shinovi Versus'' reveals that not even her life was as peachy as you may think: [[spoiler:She never wanted to become a shinobi. However, because she was the only one of her brothers and sisters to receive [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique "Kagan"]], she was made to pursue the shinobi path, not helped by the fact that no one got ever got mad at her and kept on helping her with a smile, no matter how much she screwed up]].
* DifficultButAwesome: She's extremely weird to play as and a bit silly, as well as a bit hard to get used to at first, but over time she'll become extremely powerful.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: She has a pretty peculiar iris, shaped like a pink flowery cross. Her eyes pattern is the sign of a [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique family technique]] which allow her to manipulate people's minds; she has yet to master it, though.
* {{Expy}}: She's basically [[Anime/QueensBlade Cute]] from the ''Spiral Chaos'' games, except having a bigger rack, compared with the [[ACupAngst original]].
* FlyingOnACloud: She rides on [[KillerRabbit Ninto's]] storm cloud in some of her Ninpos.

* GenkiGirl: Despite constantly doing badly, she rarely feels down for long.
* GirlishPigtails
* GirlyBruiser
* GoombaStomp: One of her weak aerial attacks in Burst. Requires precision, but it's well worth it.

* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Subverted.]] See ReverseMole below.]]
* HairDecorations: Her black ribbons.
* TheHeart: Pleaded to her teammates to not defeat the Hebi girls [[spoiler:because they have a killswitch in them]].
* HypnoticEyes: The Kagan's primary ability is the ability to control both people and objects, allowing Hibari to perform a kind of ninja puppetry.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Hibari never wanted to be a ninja, and never asked for her eyes to manifest as the Kagan. If she could, she'd give everything away if she tried, and desperately just wants to be someone who ''isn't'' special.
* {{Irony}}: Hibari's Kagan grants her puppeteer like abilities...meanwhile, Haruka, for quite awhile, wanted Hibari to be nothing more than her puppet.
* KillerRabbit: If she is competent enough. Being a playable character, she probably will be.

A third year at Hanzo Academy, Daidōji is a senior student who is well-respected by the other students. She possesses immense strength and agility and prefers to run into battle head-on rather than hiding in the shadows.

Daidōji typically fights weaponless, instead harnessing the power of her fists.

----
* AmazonianBeauty: She's extremely muscular. While her outfit does cover most of her body it leaves her torso exposed, which shows off her very large breasts, barely supported by a {{sarashi}}, and her well-defined abs.
* {{Badass}}: She showcases her skills by effortlessly pushing back the five girls of Hanzo in the anime.
** She takes on a pack of Youmas by herself on ''Deep Crimson''
** BadassLongcoat: One that bears the kanji of her name on the back.
* BareFistedMonk: She is one of few characters who lacks a weapon of sort. She only fights with the raw power of her fists with occasional kick here and there.
* BareYourMidriff
* BoobsOfSteel: She's incredibly strong (perhaps even the strongest) in pure hand-to-hand combat, and has the second-largest bust of all the girls: 100 cm. (Just 1 cm bigger than Haruka!)
* ContraltoOfDanger: Very much so!
* DigitalBikini: Wears a Japanese Fundoshi as her bikini if she receives enough clothing damage or if she's in frantic mode. While normally a thong, in ''Burst'' her fundoshi has extra wrappings that cover her cheeks. Likely due to a glitch of some sort, these wrappings often appear as large patches of completely untextured white.
* TheDreaded: Ikaruga and Katsuragi had every right to be afraid of this woman during their first year at Hanzo.
* {{Expy}}: She's basically a [[GenderFlip female]] [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Kujo Jotaro]].
* HeldBackInSchool: To be more specific, she is holding herself back from graduating before she can defeat Rin, and has been doing this for ten years.
* HeroicBuild: She's much more muscular than any of the other girls.
** Amusingly, her muscles vanish when her clothes are damaged or discarded on Frantic Mode.
* HonorBeforeReason: Daidouji refuses to graduate until she's had a proper match with Rin. Rin died several years ago on a mission. [[spoiler:Has no idea that Rin [[FaceHeelTurn is currently the sensei of Hebijo Academy]].]]
** [[spoiler:She learns of Rin's fate during ''Burst's'' events and actually team ups with her during ''Deep Crimson'']]
* HugeSchoolgirl: She's technically this due to her refusing to graduate. The anime portrays her as being practically the same size when she was a proper student as she is now, though it's unclear if this was the case in canon.
* ImageSong: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1AZTFdqcHc The Path Of The Raging Demon]] in ''Bon Appétit''.
* TheJuggernaut: This woman's monstrous strength also makes her nearly impossible to take down. This was also evident in past New Wave events where she's was an event boss [[HopelessBossFight whose only purpose was to help players climb up the damage rankings]]. As you could expect, absolutely nothing would work.

* MegatonPunch: Her signature move on ''Burst''. If she catches you on the ground when her HP is in the red, she ''will'' use an unavoidable, OneHitKill dragon punch. From Versus onwards has been demoted to a regular ninja art.
* MightyGlacier: She hits likes a tank, but she is also the slowest character out of the whole cast, so keeping a high hit count with her during a mission is harder to do.
* NiceHat: The one that looks like [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Kujo Jotaro's]]. Wearing it changes her normally-blonde hair to black, thus creating her signature look. [[spoiler: She started wearing it sometime after Rin went missing, since when they meet years later, Rin didn't recognize Daidouji at first due in part to the difference in hair color]].
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Her model in ''Burst'' has a dark layer of CelShading applied to it, something that everyone else lacks. This makes her more intimidating, but it vanishes after she takes ClothingDamage.
** The dark layer vanishing is fitting, as upon suffering clothing damage Daidouji loses her wild, menacing black wig, revealing her much more feminine golden locks of hair, making her look overall less intimidating.
* NoShirtLongJacket: Helped by wearing a sarashi around her chest.
* OralFixation: Carries a twig in her mouth on ''Deep Crimson''

** On ''Deep Crimson'' she gains the ability to spam these during her combos.
* RapunzelHair
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Suzune's blue oni.
* TheRival: To the extreme, with Rin [[spoiler: a.k.a. Suzune]]. She refuses to graduate until she has a proper match with Rin. Keep in mind that Rin is declared KIA.
* {{Sarashi}}: She wears the wraps under her jacket; she's also got a set of Sarashi ''panties''.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Her gravure scenes in ''Bon Appétit''.
* SheCleansUpNicely: Several CG images in ''Bon Appétit'' show her without her wig and in several regular outfits, and she is ''gorgeous''!
* StatuesqueStunner
* SuperToughness: On ''Deep Crimson'' she can spend a shinobi scroll to gain this, while active she can't be stunned by enemy attacks nor get her attacks interrupted.
* UnflinchingWalk: Daidōji is the only character who has this as her default speed. The only time she ever runs is when dashing.

!Kiriya sensei

[[quoteright:287:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/p_kiriya_1938.jpg]]

Kiriya is the Shinobi class instructor at Hanzō Academy. Born to a long line if shinobi, it was decided at an early age that Kiriya would follow suit. Despite having immense aptitude for the way of the Shinobi, Kiriya grew disgusted with the [[HonorBeforeReason way that shinobi had to risk their lives with each mission]], and turned to the teaching department instead. He strives to build his students into full-fledged shinobi. Due to tragic circumstances involving a former student, he tries not to interfere too much with his current shinobi-in-training. Kiriya believes in teaching his students everything he knows, while giving them the independence to be strong on their own.

He is a taciturn and strict teacher, but this is because of his high expectations for his students.

----
* {{Badass}}: [[InformedAbility Allegedly]], he was an elite shinobi in the past, and the "best of the best". Whatever skills he had besides explosive teleportation are never really shown.
* CoolTeacher: A shinobi sensei dressed in a black suit, with white hair, whose primary method of coming and going is body flickering, Kiriya definitely qualifies.
* {{Expy}}: He seems to be quite similar to Kakashi. A white-haired ninja master, who is now a stern teacher, raised from his youth to be a ninja, his parents were even ninja as well. [[spoiler:He even lost someone important to him on a mission in the past, and it pretty much has affected him throughout the rest of his life. And the lost one turns out to be alive and became a member of the [[FaceHeelTurn Enemies' Team]].]]
* InnocentInnuendo: From ''Shinovi Versus''.
** ''That softness, the white, beautiful shape... That hypnotizing jiggle... That silky texture, the delicate sweetness filling your mouth... It is astounding! ...Tofu. I have a secret passion for tofu. ...Excuse me.''
* InformedAbility: Despite being described as an elite, he's rarely seen doing anything in the games or the anime. And, despite being a shinobi, he seems to be rather easy to trick, having been duped by the Hebijo girls ''at least'' twice, and just one clash with Suzune from Hebi left him injured in the anime. Perhaps being retired dulled his skills?
* [[spoiler: MyGreatestFailure: He considers saving Rin during her Shinobi test (he saved her from getting shot by a doll before anyone could notice, thus allowing her to pass her test), allowing her to become a full-fledged Shinobi and leading to her dying on a mission a few months later, as the greatest failure of his life.]]
* {{Ninja}}: He has been doing this for a long time.
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: He has the tendency to ignore the sheer presence of the fanservice.
* OnlySaneMan: When faced by his students' antics. He even glosses over [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight Katsuragi's grope-happy tendency!]]
* RetiredBadass: According to [[spoiler:Rin]], Kiriya used to be an elite ninja, the best of the best. He's currently working as a shinobi sensei now, because, while missions pose the risk of death, teaching doesn't.
* SharpDressedMan: Always wears a pretty nice suit.
* SmokeOut: At least in anime, he really likes to use smoke bombs to either enter or exit places.

With the prodigy shinobi's name as the foundation, Hanzo Academy was built for the sole purpose of conditioning future talents in this ancent art.

He is a generally friendly person and is very found of his granddaughter Asuka. He is also the provider of the futomaki that Asuka and friends are often seen eating which he prepares in his shop.

* BadassGrandpa: He may be retired, but he still is a legendary shinobi.
* TheBet: Incite Yumi to defy Hanzo academy. He has to be awfully confident in his grand-daughter's abilities so that nobody will die.
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler:He purposely instigated Yumi into wanting to declare Shinobi Battle Royale on Hanzo, and confirmed it as Wang Pai, just to help open their eyes to seeing a different viewpoint of good and evil, and was gambling his granddaughter's abilities and safety.]]
* BigGood: Being the head of the Hanzo school, he's the closest the series has to one.
* DirtyOldMan: Originally he didn't really shows shades of these, but [[CharacterizationMarchesOn later on it started to be become clear]] that he admires the boobs of young ladies. Though he doesn't go much farther than just groping some of the girls.
* FlashStep: And Hanzo uses it to grope girls.
* ExceptionallyTolerant: There must be darkness for light to exist. Take a fondness on Homura (for more than just seeing her in the hot springs even).
* KickTheDog: He spends his first encounter with the Gessen girls groping them and stealing the food they were bringing Kurokage. He even mocks Yumi for not being "pure" anymore before leaving. [[spoiler: He was deliberately picking a fight, which makes him a Troll]].
* PowerPerversionPotential: He knows about it.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Has no problem with Hanzo school students starting to sympathize with Evil Shinobi, and encourages the girls to come to their own conclusions.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Blue to Kurokage's Red.
* RetiredBadass: He used to be a powerful Ninja, but now runs a Sushi shop instead.
* SecretIdentity: [[spoiler: Of Wang Pai, the Gessen Elite's teacher.]]
* StealthMentor: [[spoiler:To the girls at Gessen Academy, as Wang Pai.]]
* SupremeChef: Runs a sushi restaurant in his retirement. A damn good one, at that.
* TheTrickster: With a side of OpportunisticBastard. He tends to take advantage of the girls (especially Asuka) for his own perverse amusement. A good example is an anime special in which he tricks Asuka and Homura into "settling their rivalry" with a series of contests along the lines of "[[{{Fanservice}} who can fit into their too-small shirt the faster?]]"

[[caption-width-right:190:The Disgraced]]

For reasons of their own, the five former Hebijo Elites chose to let their school burn rather than defend it to the death. Six months later, they continue to pay for that decision. Together on the run, they live as renegades, eking out a menial living by day, keeping one eye open every night. With their school rebuilt and out for blood, it's only a matter of time before they face their final reckoning.

!!Related to all Past Hebijo/Crimson Squad shinobi:
* AntiHeroTeam: In Versus games, they become this.
* BadassCrew
* CatchPhrase: "I sacrifice myself to the will of evil/our dance!"

* NobleDemon: The Hebijo/Crimson girls are far from being as evil as they seem; in fact, the game goes to lengths to show that they are in fact really close to the Hanzō girls while being much more aware than them that they chose to live in a dark and violent world. Hell, "evil shinobi" means little more than being a mercenary rather than an actual villain.
** Homura: [[spoiler:She fights to feel alive and to protect her Hebijo comrades.]]

A [[spoiler:former]] second-year student at Hebijo Academy. She aims to be the very best shinobi, and will do whatever it takes to achieve that goal. As an elite Hebijo member, she has immense ability as well as strong leadership skills.

While her voice may sound slightly masculine, her good manners show her true femininity. She is grateful to her friends and relentless toward her rivals, but respects and admires the strong regardless of their affiliation.

She fights by wielding six katanas at the same time. She also carries around a Nōdachi named "Engetsuka" which she can draw out to unleash [[SuperMode Crimson Homura]]. Homura's elemental affinity is fire.

----
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Subverted. In-game art and dialogue reveal that she's tanned.
* AnimalMotifs: Snakes, of course ([[AnimalJingoism bonus points for Asuka the Frog, above]]). More specifically the Japanese Rat Snake.
** Also crabs, judging by her comedy routines.
* {{Badass}}: One of, if not the strongest among the shinobi girls. Even more so in Crimson form.
* BerserkButton: She ''really'' doesn't take betrayal very well.
** Harming Asuka is another one.
*** Although it should be noted that she doesn't like anyone hurting Asuka because [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou Asuka is hers to defeat.]] [[spoiler: [[TsunDere NOT because she cares about Asuka,]] [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial or anything like that.]]]]
* BloodKnight: Homura has stated in the first game that she fights to feel alive. [[spoiler:After she got disowned by her parents]], she felt she lacked a purpose in life. Fighting allows her to truly feel alive.
-->'''Homura:''' [[spoiler:When the people I loved most cast me aside, my heart stopped beating.]] But when I am in the middle of a fight, I realize that I can still feel alive. Yes. If I'm not fighting as a shinobi, I'm no better than a corpse.
** She considers the fact that Hanzō and Hejibo both exist is reason enough for them to fight. When you consider what "evil/dark shinobi" actually means, this is the equivalent of [[PrivateMilitaryContractor Blackwater Worldwide]] declaring war on the United States ForTheEvulz.
* CrimeOfSelfDefense: See Dark and Troubled Past.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:She was banished from her family due to her killing an evil ninja who attacked her when she was still a middle-school student. She did it as a self-defense, but they cast her out anyway.]]
* EtTuBrute: Like the BerserkButton entry states, she does '''not''' take betrayal very well.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: ''Everybody'' can tell she cares about Asuka more than she lets on. Now, whether this is platonic or not is much more ambiguous, but [[spoiler: [[ShipperOnDeck Yumi]]]] seems to ship them. Not to mention her frequent use of SuspiciouslySpecificDenial when it comes to helping Asuka.
* {{Expy}}: Of ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' version of UsefulNotes/DateMasamune. In fact, there's a pin-up of Homura dressed almost like SB's Masamune, complete with his eyepatch, albeit Homura uses Mirai's one.
* {{Foil}}: To Asuka.
* FriendlyEnemy: She loves to fight Asuka at any given chance, and holds nothing back as Shinobi tradition and respect demand, but after the first day it's obvious her intent isn't lethal anymore.
* GuestFighter: Appears as a guest character in ''Nitro+Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel''.
* GratuitousFrench: Only in the localization, Homura uses the term "joie de vivre", literally "exhilaration".
* HotBlooded
* IdiotHair
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Rather brutally {{Deconstructed}}. [[spoiler: Her defending herself and killing the man who was going to kill her results in her being thrown out and loses the chance to become a good Shinobi and while she defended herself, it's shown she herself does not exactly justify it.]]
* ImageSong: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsUvTd-ZGKI Break Out Of Your Shell]] in ''Bon Appétit''.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Why yes, they are so good that she wields ''six'' of them. She carries a nōdachi, which she doesn't normally use unless she becomes Crimson Homura, in which case she primary uses it.
* LightningBruiser: Quite fast, durable, and and can cause a lot of damage with her 6 katanas.

* {{BFS}}: Has a gigantic broadsword, which is both thick AND long, and she can extend it even further in one of her ninpos.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: She's very polite, sweet and always sports a pleasant smile. But, it masks her aggressive and sadistic side.
* BizarreTasteInFood: Due to having grown up in poverty, Yomi has bizarre tastes in foods that she's had to eat to make ends meet, such as cabbage cores, ''hornet larvae boiled in soy sauce'', but even ''she'' turns her nose up at earthworms.

* GigglingVillain: When she does, it's either darn cute or just plain creepy.
* InsaneTrollLogic: Yomi believes people with money shouldn't be allowed to have good hearts, purely because, as a child, she never met anyone with money who cared about helping the poor like her and her family. She flies into a rage at Ikaruga, who is rather rich, but also takes time out of her day to help the poor after her last encounter with Yomi, which causes her to rethink herself.

%%* NiceHat
* OneeSama: Yomi convinces Mirai to call her "Onee-sama" (Sis in the localizations) because she's always wanted to be one.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In her Bon Appétit story, the sheer mentioning of Yomi's separation from bean sprouts alone is enough to shock anyone she comes across. It gets to the point where the situation gets treated like some sort of serious breakup.
* PetTheDog: To Mirai, when Yomi reveals she wears a stomach band to sleep, to help her over her insecurity with her bear panties.
* PimpedOutDress: It's a gown, and it doesn't look like a combat gear or for that matter ''practical''. When you've been stuck in poverty and you suddenly have the power to make clothing out of thin air, you would pimp that out too.

* DefrostingIceQueen: In ''Shinovi Versus''. Katsuragi is astonished when Hikage jokes about groping Katsuragi as a reward for helping with her training.
* DualWielding
* EmotionlessGirl: Hikage is a very strange example of the trope. She claims to have no emotions, and is unable to feel anything. Yet numerous points in the series show that she is very much capable of emotion, she just appears to be unaware of it. As a child, when her mentor Hinata, the closest thing she'd had to a parent, was killed, and Hikage found her body, she broke down crying. A similar situation happened in ''Burst'', when she thought Mirai had been killed, Hikage began to cry as well. She describes the sensation as "a rainstorm in her heart", and doesn't actually realize that she's crying until Mirai points it out.
* {{Expy}}: She looks a lot like [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Yuuka Kazami]], even sharing some aspects of her personality. In fact, there's a lot of fan-art of both Yuuka and Hikage sharing their clothes or being together.
** Her [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair green hair]], [[HellishPupils yellow eyes]], [[SnakesAreSexy snake motifs]], and [[KnifeNut love of knives]] make her appearance-wise a [[GenderBender gender-bent]] one to [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Hazama/Yuuki Terumi]].

* FlechetteStorm: Her Aerial Ninpo has her summon a snake-like construct made of knives that she flings at the target.
* FragileSpeedster: To contrast with Katsuragi, she is very fast. However her Health is average.
* HellishPupils: Snake-like, and they are either disturbing to look at or [[NightmareFetishist cute to some]].
* InnocentInnuendo: Hikage refers to the couch the player uses to change characters as the "casting couch"...before realizing that means something totally different.
* KansaiRegionalDialect: Courtesy of her [[Creator/RyokoShiraishi voice actress]].

A [[spoiler:former]] first-year student at Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy. While her graciousness in defeat may suggest a certain level of maturity, in truth she can be immature and disobedient. Her lack of maturity is best displayed in her hatred of being ignored.

While it can sometimes be hard for her being surrounded by more mature shinobi, overall she is very happy to be a member of the Hebijo Academy. Her umbrella is a concealed firearm, and she hides other heavy weapons under her skirt.

* ACupAngst: {{Downplayed}}, but it's there. The fans often joke that it's the #1 reason that she's constantly bullied.
* {{Adorkable}}: One can't help but admit how adorable she gets when she goes full otaku on people sometimes. Add the fact that she's a diehard [[ShowWithinAShow Sengoku Super Wars]] fangirl and she definitely comes off as this.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: She went through constant bullying in the past which made a serious dent in her self-esteem.
* AxCrazy: Mostly evident in the Hanzo side where she's shown to react violently towards Yagyū any time she doesn't pay attention to her. She'd even go as far as torturing Hibari if it meant Yagyū wouldn't ignore her. Thankfully she's gotten a whole lot better since then thanks to character development.
* [[EvilCounterpart Antagonistic Counterpart]]: A mirror-match in a number of ways to Yagyū: same schoolyear in different schools, eyepatches of different designs and materials[[note]]Hers is more mechanical and modern, while Yagyū's is more traditional.[[/note]] in opposite positions, different types of umbrellas, hair color, etc.
* AttentionWhore: Not to an extreme, but doesn't like being ignored.
* BerserkButton: Mirai will not react well to anyone who ignores her.
* {{BFG}}: Valkyrie sure counts. It's bigger than she is!
* ButtMonkey: She's about as weak as Hibari when it comes to being a ninja, but she acts big and considers Yagyū her rival. Yagyū is a ''ChildProdigy''. Yagyū also tends to ignore Mirai when she appears, being more focused on something else, much of her annoyance.
** LethalJokeCharacter: In-game only, a pure ranged fighter with the ability to counter attacks just when you think it is safe to attack her at melee range? She is this in spades.
* CatGirl: Her second animal motif, strangely.
* CuteLittleFangs: To match cat ears and tail on her costume.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:She used to be bullied in her old school, causing her to have a sort of inferiority complex.]]
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Her eyepatch looks like [[MetalGearSolid4 the Solid Eye]] with a Mitsudomoe symbol.

*** Pulling the gun on frantic mode reveals than is set on a base which goes under her crotch though.

* {{Expy}}: She's basically a ninja version of Kuro Kagami from ''Kodomo no Jikan'', complete with her cat motifs.
* EyepatchOfPower: The opposite eye from Yagyū's. [[spoiler:She wears it to block her vision from the world due of the constant bullying she suffered.]]
* GatlingGood: One of her default weapons in Senran Kagura 2 is a ''portable gatling gun''.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: Mirai wears very cute, bear-print panties. Haruka finds this hilarious.
* GrenadeLauncher: One of her weapon stances in Senran Kagura 2 is a grenade launcher.
* {{Hammerspace}}: Where DOES she store her anti-tank rifle Valkyrie, anyway?
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: She takes the bullet for Homura when Yagyū tries to shoot her in the first game.]]
* HimeCut: Long black hair. Due to being petite, it reaches beyond her hips.

** Zeppelin (Aerial, ''Burst'')
** Wilde-Sauer (Aerial, ''Deep Crimson'')
* MoreDakka: Her umbrella has machine-gun in it.
** Her Ninja Arts bring more and more dakka as they come. Her first Ninja art is always an anti-tank rifle, followed up with a belt made out of gatling guns. Her final Ninja Art changes, was it firing her anti-tank rifle in combination of using her umbrella as a flamethrower (''Burst''), using a KillSat (''Deep Crimson'') or summoning ''giant cannon on wheels with multiple rifles and gatling guns on its side'' (''Shinovi Versus'').
* [[OlderThanTheyLook Older Than She Looks]]: This ElegantGothicLolita looks 12 years old, but actually is the same age as Yagyū.
* ParasolOfPain: With a machine-gun attachment no less.
* PenName: For her online novelist identity, she uses "Futsure", which is her name in English [[GratuitousEnglish pronounced like it was written in Japanese]].
* PetitePride: Where she does sometimes show the desire to gain larger breasts, she is at least fine with her being flat, saying that people do like them small.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: She's the shortest of the Crimson Girls and manages to pack some serious power.
* RealTimeWeaponChange: She has the ability to switch between her umbrella, a gatling gun, and a grenade launcher in Senran Kagura 2.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Haruka and Yagyū's blue
* RedEyesTakeWarning

* SchoolSwimsuit: Her default swimsuit.
* SmallGirlBigGun: Whatever gun comes from her skirt, its probably at very least her size.
* StealthPun: Instead of the actual Vaio laptop, Mirai uses a ''[[BlandNameProduct Paio]]'' laptop to write her stories on.
* StockShoujoBullyingTactics: She was mostly the victim of being ignored by others.
* StoneWall: In Burst, while her HP, Attack and Defense are low, she has a move that can negate the damage of enemies' attacks as well as counter-attack said enemies as a response. This move, if timed well, can help her survive many attacks without a scratch.
* TeamMom: Becomes this after proving her reliability in ''Bon Appetit''. Also a case of BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor.
* ThemeNaming: Her Ninja Arts are named after stuff from German war history, most notably from World War II.

A [[spoiler:former]] third-year student at Hebijo Acadeny . She’s a sadistic character who acts like the queen of the castle, and her favourite thing in the world is to tease the weak. Yet despite this, she cradles her juniors’ feelings and acts almost like a mother figure to them. This maternal instinct is probably the reason why she is fond of Hibari from Hanzo Academy.

She uses chemical weapons and puppetry, concealing the inner workings of her strategies under her white coat.

----
* AnimalMotifs: The Japanese keelback.
* AffablyEvil: Unlike Yomi, her polite nature comes off as intimidating.
* BadassLongcoat: While not especially long, she often uses what she stores in it, or even the coat itself, as her weapon.
* TheBaroness: The Sexpot type.
* BodySurf: When she's about to fight Hibari she'll usually Body Surf into a lifelike doll of herself (at least, that's how ''Burst'''s English translation handles it).
* BoobsOfSteel: She is a top-tier ninja possessing rare skill, and her boobs are significantly greater than the rest of the cast[[note]]Excluding Murasaki and Daidōji.[[/note]] ([[UpToEleven which is saying something]]).
* CatSmile: She's make a rather goofy one in Bon Appétit.
* ChainsawGood: Her robot puppet possesses one.
* CoatCape: She wears her {{labcoat|ofscienceandmedicine}} this way.
* CombatSadoMasochist: Implied. Just read the names of her leitmotifs below...
* CoolBigSis: She acts more in the lines of big sister mentor to the other girls. Hibari even reminds her of such after she starts having doubts.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:Is mentally twisted due to her having been [[MyBelovedSmother nothing more than her mother's doll]].]]
* DifficultButAwesome: Like Hibari she's sort of strange to get the hang of at first, but eventually becomes very strong.
* {{Dominatrix}}: She just lacks the whip.
* GeniusBruiser: Highly intelligent? Check. Capable of beating foes within an inch of their life? Check. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Very sexy?]] Double check.
* GradualGrinder: She's the only shinobi who's capable of inflicting multiple status effects on her opponents.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: She genuinely wants to be friends with Hibari. Although in her case, it's not clear whether she means it in the traditional sense, looking for a lesbian pet rabbit or even both.
** If ''Shinovi Versus'' is anything to go by, it's the former. The two are mutually happy to see each other, Haruka asks Hibari for advice, Hibari shows off how strong she's become, and all of Haruka's sexual lust for her is pretty much gone. In the main story anyway. The character stories show that Haruka ''does'' still find Hibari adorable, but [[PlayedForLaughs considering the way the character stories go]] it's not ''nearly'' as unsettling as it was in ''Burst.''

%%* MightyGlacier: Though her normal attacks are very short ranged, they do a lot of damage. Her Ninpos are also very strong, [[UselessUsefulSpell aside from the basic Ground one]].
* {{Ojou}}: You certainly wouldn't have guessed from looking at her. On the other hand, she doesn't like being an Ojou, she craves independence.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: Seems to be an expert in both chemicals and robotics. Perhaps genetic engineering too, taking the... ''things'' in the test tubes in the opening of ''Burst'' into account.
** ''Guren no Hebi'' confirms that Haruka is indeed a genius in genetic engineering as well, having created a carnivorous plant/snake chimera part as a new weapon for Hebijo and part for her own amusement.
* PetTheDog: In her own... ''strange'' way, after laughing at Mirai's bear-print panties, Haruka gives her a negligee to help her over her insecurities.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Mirai's and Hibari's red.
* RobotBuddy: Ever since ''Versus'', Haruka has a small battle robot hidden in her lab coat. It has piston punches, claws, chainsaws, flamethrowers and a notable AI, considering it's capable of fawning over Haruka. (As though she'd build a robot that wouldn't).
* SexySadist: She's a total sadist and enjoys making sexy-fun of Hibari. One can suspect that there is a rape scene missing in episode 9.
* TheSouthpaw: Surprisingly, she's lefthanded.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Again, her outfit (along with Shiki) is the most scanty one out of all 79 girls. No, Katsuragi doesn't count; that girl wasn't trying to ''wear'' much to begin with.
* TeamMom: Sadism aside (somehow), she's (somehow) the one who works hard to keep her friends' spirits up (somehow).
* TheTease: Likes to use innuendos and double entendres sometimes just to get a reaction out of people.
* TooKinkyToTorture: Haruka very blatantly enjoys being beaten to the point of having her clothing shredded. [[spoiler:[[BodySurf It helps that it's usually not her real body]].]]
* WeaponOfChoice: Chemicals, carried around in glass tubes, and a [[RobotBuddy robot buddy]].
* YouAreWhatYouHate: [[spoiler:Haruka's Freudian Excuse is that her mother reduced her to a dress-up doll in response to her father practically abandoning their family. Now, think back on all that effort Haruka put in to making Hibari a doll of her own]].

[[caption-width-right:219:The Vile]]

Hebijo Clandestine Girls' Academy was renowned throughout the criminal underworld for its ruthless spies and vicious assassins - until the school burned down in a terrible battle six months ago. Now, from the old school's smoke and ashes, a new leader emerges. Her followers hail from all corners of the shinobi world, each one proud in her own way to call herself "evil." Their first mission: Hunt down the school's former Elites, punish their failure and betrayal, and restore the name of Hebijo to its former glory.

!!Related to all Hebijo Clandestine shinobi
* AutobotsRockOut: In ''Shinovi Versus'', all of the girls' themes are done in hard rock and heavy metal. While rock music has always been a staple in the ''Senran Kagura'' series, the Hebijo girls stand out the most in that their themes are purely done in rock music.
* BadassCrew
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler: By Dōgen. The Crimson Squad frees them though]].
* CatchPhrase: "I dance for the honor of evil!"
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Often on the receiving end of this from the Crimson Squad, especially from Homura, who calls them out on being a bunch of violent lunatics who only claim superiority because of their school.

** TheDragon: Imu
** TheBrute: Ryōna
** EvilGenius: Ryōbi
** DarkChick: Murasaki
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler: They kill off the other factions as an act of vengeance]].
* NotSoDifferent: They claim the way of Evil Shinobi is entirely different and superior to Good Shinobi, and the world would be better off without Good Shinobis' weakness. [[GenreBlind They're totally unaware]] this is a perfect mirror of Gessen's philosophy.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Good god. They're pretty much hell-bent on reforming Hebijo that they [[spoiler: disposed of the other three factions to do so]].
* [[ShortRangeGuyLongRangeGuy Short-Range Girl, Long-Range Girl]]: Ryōbi and Ryōna respectively. Ryōbi's playstyle focuses more on long-range combat, while Ryōna specializes in fighting at close quarters.
* StupidEvil: Invoked [[spoiler:thanks to the brainwashing]]. Their utter dismissiveness of the merits of flexible thinking and ThePowerOfFriendship look more and more destructively narrow-minded as the plot goes on.
* SympatheticPOV: An interesting example. While their story explains why they come off as cruel and ruthless to the other teams, [[spoiler: it ends with them killing all their opposition]]. It's only in the other stories, where they're universally antagonistic agents of the BigBad, that [[spoiler:the brainwashing is broken and they reach an understanding with the other schools.]]
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Despite a network of familial relationships and childhood friendships, the group don't have any particular sense of unity and some aren't even that loyal to Hebijo itself, leading to more internal bickering than the other teams. [[spoiler: Depending on the story being played, this can lead to the group completely imploding.]]

* {{Bifauxnen}}: She has BoyishShortHair and is stated to be fairly masculine to the point that she's mistaken for a boy (in spite of her chest) .

* DaddysGirl: [[spoiler:She is the only one not under Dōgen's brainwashing as her father is the principal of Hebijo Academy and she does not want him to get fired.]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:Her mother was brutally killed by a yōma in front of her when she was a child, motivating her desire to become a kagura.]]
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: [[spoiler:She invoked Blood Riot while her & Imu were on a mission. However, she lost control of her body and soul. This lead to Imu using Blood Reverse.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Miyabi won't hold back on insults. Although, this probably comes from her cold nature.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: To the point where she tries to find a way to be more feminine to get them off her back.
* HellishPupils: Strangely similar to Hikage's design.
* HiddenHeartOfGold: Well, "gold" might be pushing it, but she's not the emotionaless bitch the other teams take her for. She's just extremely loyal to Hibejo, the Shinobi code, and [[spoiler:her father, the last of which is being leveraged against the other two to blackmail her.]]

She can also perform very fast launchers capable of sending opponents in the air very quick. Her defense is also very impressive for when she takes a hit.

* OverratedAndUnderleveled: She's a graduate of Hebijo, which in theory should put her on the level of [[BonusBoss Daidoji and Suzune]]. Yet starts at level one and loses fights to actual students. Justified, as she spent a few years catatonic and wheelchair-bound, which did a number on her fitness and skills.

-->''Someone. Someone please help.''

A Second year student and Imu's younger sister. She is very anti social and spends most of her time in her room playing with her stuffed bear plushy, Bebeby. She is known as the first truant in Hebijo's history because of her introverted nature. Due to an incident in the past, her relationship with her sister had been strained. Despite her timid nature, she possesses a dark power called ''Root of Calamity'' that gives her a frightening amount of energy. She also has the ability to sense someone's intentions by smelling them. She also happens to have the largest breast out of all the girls in the series.

Murasaki focuses on close-ranged attacks by manipulating the giant shurikens attached to her hair. With her Root of Calamity power, she can also perform darkness based ninja arts. Murasaki's affinity is darkness.

----
* AbusiveParents: As a child her father pulled her hair when she refused to start her training.
* BadassUnintentional: Her goal is to be left alone, at her room, with her plush. Still, she will stop anyone standing in her way to achieve said goal.
* BearsAreBadNews: Her ninja animal is the Bear.
* BerserkButton: Don't insinuate that Bebeby is just a toy. [[spoiler:Minori]] learns this the hard way.
** When Imu and Murasaki were younger, Imu snatched Bebeby away from Murasaki so she would stop being so dependent her. The end result was [[spoiler: her waking up to see Imu [[CurbStompBattle out cold by her feet]] followed by her father informing her of the [[CursedWithAwesome Root of Calamity power]] she possesses. Stating that by detonating her mental strength, the ninja art increases the power of the body ten times]].
** Another instance [[spoiler: was when a Hebijo examiner came to her room. When he was about to grab Bebeby, her cursed spirit power activated again. When Murasaki came to, her feet were covered by the examiner's blood. It was then revealed to be an [[SecretTest entrance exam]] for Hebijo, which, [[TheseHandsHaveKilled much to her shock]], she passes]].
** Another thing to also take note is that Murasaki thinks of Bebeby as a ''very close'' [[CompanionCube surrogate sister]]. Should anyone, and we mean ''ANYONE'', try to take, steal, or rip Bebeby apart; she will not have ''any'' mercy.
** Long story short, '''[[DoNotTauntCthulhu DON'T DO ANYTHING HARMFUL TO BEBEBY]]'''.
*** Murasaki ''seriously'' does not like hackers. If you just so happen to be one, '''run'''.
* BoobsOfSteel: [[UpToEleven She boasts the largest breasts of all the senrans]], but this is Played with as while she can call forth massive raw strength, she's not exactly a physical powerhouse.
* BrilliantButLazy: She's very capable of being an excellent ninja. However, she would rather play with Bebeby all day and browse the web than actually train.
* CastingAShadow: Her Root of Calamity power allows her to execute darkness based ninja arts.
* CompanionCube[=/=] SecurityBlanket: Bebeby
* CreepyChild
* CursedWithAwesome: The Root of Calamity power she possesses. Sure it gives her a lot of power, but her sister resented her for it.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler: She originally didn't want to become a shinobi, but was forced to by her father under the suspicion that she was using her cursed spirit power for her own gain. Soon after, Imu tries to take Bebeby away from Murasaki because she thought it was weighing her down. Because of her cursed power, this resulted in her hurting Imu, killing a Hebijo scout, receiving more attention than Imu, and threatened her own family for trying to exploit her power. She's felt that Imu was resentful of her ever since and would rather be around Miyabi.]]
* ElegantGothicLolita
* {{Expy}}: Bebeby bares a lot of resemblance to the Kumamoto Prefecture mascot, Kumamon.
* GlassCannon: Probably ''the'' glassiest of cannons. She hits hard, but her defense is rather terrible.
* {{Hikikomori}}: Spends most of her time secluded in her room. Her online username is even "cute_shutin"
* HomingProjectile: In ''Estival Versus'', she gains a new Strong Attack which allows her to fire purple energy orbs that home in on her locked target.

* PrehensileHair: Uses spinning blades attached to her hair for her attacks.
* PurpleEyes
* RapunzelHair
* ShrinkingViolet: Very soft-spoken and shy.
* SphereOfDestruction: How her Root of Calamity works. It comes in two forms, her Strong Attack/Breach Art and her [[LimitBreak Mid-Level Hidden Ninpo]].
* [[spoiler: TakingTheBullet: She does this for Imu when Ryōbi tries to shoot her. Fortunately, the shot didn't able to hit anything vital, and was able to survive it.]]
* UnskilledButStrong: As described above in brilliant but lazy; she has power but due to her lack of training, it's unrefined.
* VocalDissonance: She's usually soft spoken....right until she gets angry.
* WhenSheSmiles: Usually seen with a [[PerpetualFrowner depressed expression]] on her face. On rare occasions where she does smile, it's adorable.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]

* TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening: [[spoiler: Imu awakens the Root of Calamity when Murasaki is killed by Ryōbi.]]

-->[-VA: MAKO, (Japanese)-]
----
* AnimalMotif: The pig
* AxCrazy: She has absolutely no problem with killing you if you don't hurt her in any way. Not only that, she also has a tendency to unnerve people because of her hardcore masochism. This even makes her sadist sister, Ryōbi, want to avoid her sometimes!
-->'''Ryōna:''' Of course, if you won't hit me OR rub me...then I guess you can die. Yep. I'll need you to die.
* BerserkButton: Ryōna ''will'' finish you if you know anything about Ryōki.
** When her & Ryōbi were witnessing Sayuri send off one of the spirits and saw that she was about to do the same to Ryōki, she mowed down the shinobi Kekkai barrior just to get to her.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Her bizarre behavior may be hard to take seriously, but one should never forget that Ryōna is ''deadly''. If she wants to, she can and will kill you without a second thought.
* BigBreastPride: Loves to show off her breasts, which are an impressive 98 cm, making her one of the more bustier girls.

* DanceBattler: Her fighting style incorporates elements of figure skating.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Shared with Ryoubi. [[spoiler:They transferred to Hebijo to exact revenge on Miyabi, who they think was responsible for the death of their big sister, a Gessen teacher, during her mission to kill Miyabi in order stop her from using her power which was feeding yōmas. It was the mission which left Miyabi comatose for years, and during which Rin/Suzune was presumably killed (she was recruited by Miyabi's father).]]
* DissonantSerenity: She somehow finds a way to put on a smile in the most unsettling moments.
* DontTryThisAtHome: Advises the player not to engage in the same act of becoming a tempura like her. Yes. You read that right.
-->'''Ryōna:''' But don't you ever, EVER, try this at home. Even for a trained professional like me, becoming a piece of tempura is highly risky.

* GangstaStyle: She tends to do this often.
* GenkiGirl: A rather unsettling version of this trope.

* GunFu: Her fighting style also revolves around this.

* MeaningfulName: It's possible she was named after the [[{{Ryona}} infamous practice of the same name]] in videogames of exacting violence on female characters on very brutal ways. This is made more likely by her being a notorious masochist.
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: Wanting to see how it feels to be [[TakeOurWordForIt cooked alive, unremorsefully crushes two random mooks as a giant in the OVA]], and her masochistic antics in general make her a likely candidate as one.
* OrgasmicCombat: Ryōna can be a little too vocal about her lust for pain in fighting.
* PimpedOutDress: Her dress is inspired by SwanLake.
* SeriousBusiness: She ''will'' go from a kinky attitude to a serious tone if anyone knows anything about her and Ryōbi's deceased sister, Ryōki. [[spoiler: She disposes of Yozakura when she was on the verge of finding out why they transferred to Hebijo]].

* StealthPun: Her ninja animal is the Pig, which is frequently symbolic of gluttony. She's also a hardcore masochist. [[spoiler: She's a glutton for punishment.]]
* TooKinkyToTorture: Well she is a masochist after all. During Katsuragi's substory Katsuragi humors Ryōna and agrees to "bully" her by groping her breasts, but soon regrets it when Ryōna ends up enjoying it instead of resisting like she expected.
* TriggerHappy
* VillainsOutShopping: It may be a hobby of hers, but being Ryōna she's more likely to buy ''certain items''.

* {{Determinator}}: [[HateSink Utterly despicable]] he may be, but even Homura admits his utter dedication to his [[TakeOverTheWorld goal]] is very impressive. She outright admits that if he applied that determination to [[YouCouldHaveUsedYourPowersForGood less selfish goals, he could have made the world a better place]].
* HateSink: Let's see, he [[spoiler: uses the Crimson Squad to revive Orochi resulting in them going rogue, killed Tsumuji when she was trying to save Homura, had Rin thrown in a holding cell for going against his orders, put the Crimson Girls on a dead man's switch, brainwashed the current ''and'' new Hebijo squad to do his bidding, captures Master Hanzo, and revives the other yoma as well. Luckily, Homura manages to kill the bastard for all the atrocities he committed]].
* HeroicBuild: His appearance in the first few games is never shown, but according to game text he's apparently a tall man with a sculpted physique. He does, however, get an appearance in the anime and eventually Senran Kagura 2. (As shown above)
* HulkingOut: Before his boss battle in SK 2, he does this by eating a Yoma fetus when confronted by Rin and Homura.
* ImplacableMan: No matter how many times Homura allegedly kills him, he manages come back every single time. You'd swear he has a whole bunch {{BodyDouble}}s stored away just for the occasion.
* TheManBehindTheMonsters: He is behind all of the ''yoma'' appearance in ''Deep Crimson''.
* MindManipulation: He has mastered the art of puppetry what allows him to take control of practically anyone he can. [[spoiler:He even uses it on ''himself'' to make himself unlock the true potential of his ''yoma'' form]].
* KilledMidSentence: [[spoiler:Is quickly killed by Homura in the Hebijo storyline as he was raving on about how he was going to use Orochi for his own intentions]].
* MonochromaticEyes: Well, just a single eye and based on the scar on his left eye implies that he is blind on the left eye due of some sort of battle.
* MysteriousBacker: His motives are a mystery even to the Hebijo school officials.
* TakeOverTheWorld: Where his plans with ''yoma'' first imply he is aiming for WarForFunAndProfit, ''Deep Crimson'' drop this as his true motive.

!!Gessen Girls School

[[quoteright:173:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/senrankagura_death_cram_5036.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:170:The Immaculate]]

The shinobi students of the Gessen Girls’ Academy pride themselves on strict discipline and purity of spirit. Their five Elites are all adopted children of the infamous shinobi Kurokage, who fought to purge all evil from the world. Devoted to his dream, these five noble souls wield their light to burn away darkness – by any means necessary.

!!Related to all Gessen School shinobi:
* BadassCrew
* CatchPhrase: "Sink into the dreams of sleeping souls!"
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:All of them were adopted by Kurokage after their shinobi parents were killed by evil shinobi; hence their unforgiving attitude toward the bad faction, and their initial Knight Templar hostility toward Hanzo for their friendship with Homura's group.]]
* DramaticallyMissingThePoint: Though he tried to raise them well, the girls never seemed to understand that he was trying to explain that his past worldview was wrong, and decided to take it upon themselves to fulfill his abandoned dream.
* [[FiveManBand Five Girl Band]]:
** TheHero: Yumi
** TheLancer: Yozakura
** BigGal: Murakumo
** SmartGirl: Shiki
** TheChick: Minori
* HappilyAdopted: Everyone who isn't Yumi, his biological granddaughter. Kurokage really cares about his adopted daughters, and they love him back.
* HeroAntagonist
* KnightTemplar: [[spoiler:Due to their Dark And Troubled Pasts, they believe all evil shinobi must be destroyed and that any good shinobi who get along with them lose their right to be called "good". This leads to them wanting to have a world with no evil shinobi, their adopted parent's, Kurokage, dream. At least until they actually see in their storyline that not all evil shinobi are downright evil causing them to rethink themselves.]]
* OrchestralBombing: In ''Shinovi Versus'', all of the girls' themes are this. Which makes sense because each of the girls' themes are [[Main/PublicDomainSoundtrack arrangements of famous classical music]].
** Yumi: Requiem Mass in D minor, by Mozart, and Piano Sonata No. 8 (Sonata Pathétique), by Beethoven
** Murakumo: Scythian Suite Op. 20, by Sergei Prokofiev
** Yozakura: Piano Sonata No. 14 (Moonlight Sonata), by Beethoven
** Shiki: The Four Seasons, by Vivaldi
** Minori: The Nutcracker, by Tchaikovsky
* ZettaiRyouiki: In their school uniforms in ''Shinovi Versus'', all girls are Grade A but the socks are so high up into their skirts that you would easily mistake them for wearing ProperTightsWithASkirt unless you view them from a bottom-up angle in the Dressing Room or when they are knocked down and/or have their skirts ripped. However this gets averted in ''Estival Versus'' as the girls really are wearing ProperTightsWithASkirt instead.

-->''Snow conceals everything. Anger, sorrow, pleasure, joy...''

A third year and the leader at Death Cram School. She's the granddaughter of Kurokage, the rival of the legendary ninja Hanzo. As the "snow" in her name would suggest, she has a cool personality.

Her parents encountered a ninja and were quickly disposed of, along with the other girls at Death Cram School she was raised by Kurokage.

For the purpose of challenging Asuka, the granddaughter of Hanzo who is her grandfather's rival, she takes part in Hanzo's "school festival".

** [[spoiler: She also loses her KnightTemplar attitude after seeing how Imu was ready to risk her life to save an injured Miyabi after Yumi defeated her and then trading blows with Homura who said that she views Asuka as a rival and how they push each other.

* TheRival: Yumi believes Asuka is no longer fit to become a good ninja for allowing Homura to live.
* ShipperOnDeck: [[spoiler: Seeing how determined Homura is to help Asuka, she asks if the two are lovers. Homura [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend (very loudly)]] says they aren't, but it doesn't stop her from teasing Asuka about it [[ShipTease (who doesn't seem to mind so much).]]]]
* SillyReasonForWar: By the end of the game, she knows the reasons behind her personal vendetta against Asuka are shallows, but as a shinobi she has to fight to the end.

-->''Don't worry. You...You don't have to be nice. I kn-kn-know how I look, all right? I get it!''

A third year at Gessen Girls Academy & daughter of the Tairo Corporation CEO. Due to her shy personality, she wears a mask to hide her face. With the mask on, however, she becomes ''very'' bloodthirsty. In the event where she isn't wearing her mask, because of her introverted personality and shy nature, she gets very nervous and speaks extremely fast. She will use anything to hide her face (even garbage bags).

Her weapons are a large cleaver and spear. Swinging the cleaver downwards very quickly results in an extremely heavy blow. She also has the ability to summon her pet wolf, Daigoro, along with other wolves, in her ninja arts.

-> Date of Birth: 8th of October
-> Age: 18
-> Blood Type: B
-> Height: 172 cm (5'7")
-> Measurements: B96, W58, H85 (38-23-33)
-> Hobby: Drawing manga.
-> Favorite Food: Rice cake.
-> Ninja Animal: Wolf
-> Weapon: Spear and giant cleaver
-->[-VA: Creator/HisakoKanemoto, (Japanese)-]
----
* {{Adorkable}}: Not only does she love drawing manga, but she also happens to be a huge Sengoku Super Wars fangirl.
* AttackAnimal: She uses a pair of wolf summons in combat. Whether they count as NobleWolves or SavageWolves probably depends on where you stand with relation to Murakumo herself.
* {{Badass}}: Possibly the deadliest shinobi girl, as long as she keeps her mask on.
* BeneathTheMask: Pun ''very much'' intended. The rude, abusive girl who wears the mask is actually a ridiculously shy moeblob underneath.
* BerserkButton: If you manage unmask her but she then re-masks herself, she will take revenge on you for doing that.
* {{BFS}}: Her gigantic blood-stained cleaver.
* CharacterDevelopment: In ''New Wave'', Murakumo's newer card art has been showing her going without her mask more and more frequently without panicking or getting nervous. In the ''Versus'' series, however, [[StatusQuoIsGod you can probably expect her to stay cagey]].
* CoolPet: Daigoro and Kotaro are not just her attack animals, they're also her pet wolves too.
* DashAttack / VideogameDashing
* DefeatByModesty: Overlaps with DontLookAtMe. Defeating her always results in her mask being knocked off. At which point, she then lacks any willpower to continue fighting and instead proceeds to hide her face and run away. The most prominent example is when she was about to finish off Asuka in the Hanzo Story in ''Shinovi Versus'', only for Ikaruga to [[BigDamnHeroes come to her rescue]] by swiping her mask off. The resulting reaction was expected.
* DontLookAtMe: She'll usually tell people to do this if her mask is off.
* FamilyHonor: The reason why she was adopted second time was because the head of Tairo Corporation did not have worthy heirs (Murakumo is just a distant relative) and adopted her because he saw Houo Organization do the same with Ikaruga. She didn't take it that well and hated Ikaruga for this.
* FatalFlaw: Taking off her mask in general. She would've killed Asuka if it hadn't been for [[BigDamnHeroes Ikaruga swiping her mask off]]. Without it, she pretty much covered her face and left herself defenseless for Katsuragi to scare her off.
* ForSCIENCE: She tries to get Shiki's support to practice and get some inspiration for the romance bits of her newest manga. Shiki flees for her life.
* GlassCannon / FragileSpeedster
* HugeSchoolgirl: At 172 cm (5'07") tall she is the tallest female playable character so far (not counting New Wave). Slightly taller than even Daidouji, though she happens to look larger as a dramatic effect.
* IconicItem: Her Hannya mask[[note]]A Hannya mask is used in Noh theater and Shinto and Buddhist ceremonial dances. They portray the spirits of jealous women and are used to represent the complexity of emotions[[/note]], which serves as something of an emotional crutch (see Split Personality below). In the New Wave card game, she has an alternate tiger mask that she sometimes carries.
* KnifeNut: Carries a large butcher's cleaver into battle, which she treats as though it were AnAxeToGrind.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WP-pzUZsjak&list=UUZe8fFTOngzT1odz5lLEumg Masked Princess]]
* LimitBreak:
** Kotarou
** Kagerou
** Daigorou Cut
* MotorMouth: A symptom of anxiety that arises when she doesn't have her mask.
* PowerupMount: How her [[LimitBreak Ultimate Hidden Ninpo]] works. She rides on the back of a giant white wolf who then proceeds to bulldoze over her enemies.
* RecurringBoss: Is fought a total of ''four'' times in the Hanzo Story in ''Shinovi Versus''. Three times by Ikaruga and once by Asuka.
* ShrinkingViolet: So absolutely, desperately shy that, if she can't have her mask, she'll hide her head with a ''trash bag''.
* ShortRangeLongRangeWeapon: By Ryobi, in the New Hebijo storyline.
* ShoutOut: Two of her mangas she has written are named [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar "Mask of the South"]] and [[Literature/DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep "Do 2D Girls Dream of Electric Toasters?"]].
* SplitPersonality: Rude and bloodthirsty when she has her mask on; puts Hibari to shame on the moeblob race without it.
* TheUnSmile: Pulls one off after the end of her story mode.
* VocalDissonance: With her mask off, she speaks in high-pitched and [[MotorMouth rapid]] tone. With her mask on, she speaks with an affected ContraltoOfDanger.

-->''Kicking is for men and girls with no shame. A real lady knows how to use her fists, and look good doing it.''

A second year at Gessen Girls Academy. She has a very serious demeanor and isn't very good at understanding jokes. She doesn't approve of twisted things, nor things that get out of hand. When she comes across either of these two things her home dialect/accent unintentionally comes out. On both hands she wields special gauntlets that change size and cover her hands and wrist. Heavy blows are her specialty.

She's the oldest of 12 brothers and sisters. With her mother killed during a mission as a shinobi, she had to raise her young siblings by herself. After her father's death a year later, however, Yozakura was separated from her relatives. After escaping, she met with the master Kurokage and he told her, "I'll give you the strength to protect what is important to you." She accepted with the condition that she gets to reunite with her brothers and sisters again.

-> Ninja Animal: Wild Boar
-> Weapon: Giant Gauntlets
-->[-VA: Creator/KaoriIshihara, (Japanese)-]
----
* AnimalMotifs: Her ninja animal is the wild boar.
* BareYourMidriff: Her ninja outfit is a kimono-like two-piece ensemble that shows off her belly.
* BoomHeadShot: [[spoiler:How she goes out in Hebijo's story mode, courtesy of Ryona.]]
* CherryBlossomGirl: An interesting, somewhat darker play on the trope. [[MeaningfulName Her name means]] "Cherry Trees in the Evening".
* CloseRangeCombatant
* TheComicallySerious: Couldn't understand a joke if you dangled it in front of her face.
* DontSplitUsUp: The oldest of twelve siblings, who was PromotedToParent after their mother and father were killed in battle. Her desperation to keep her family together led her to become a Shinobi herself.
* DuelToTheDeath[=/=]ICanStillFight[=/=]DeathSeeker: While fighting Katsuragi.
* {{Expy}}: To Kanna Tanigawa from ''Anime/WaitingInTheSummer''.
* ExtremityExtremist: She uses only punch-based attacks, which are in direct contrast to Katsuragi's kick-based attacks.
* GroundPunch: One of her attacks.
* HandBlast: At higher levels of activity, Yozakura's gauntlets start releasing concussive shockwaves. Two of her [[LimitBreak Ninpo]] fire large blasts of energy.
* HiddenDepths: Yozakura is very good at being a caretaker for others. This is evident in her flashback where she's able to take care of her 12 younger siblings all by herself and her role as a mother figure toward the rest of her team. She also ask the Instructor, in New Wave, if he/she has any siblings of their own.
* HumongousMecha: Her new [[LimitBreak Ultimate Hidden Ninpo]] in ''Estival Versus'' has her gauntlets transform into a giant gold-coated robot whom Yozakura pilots inside a glass cockpit, proceeding to punch the living hell out of her enemies with its oversized fists.
* InsaneTrollLogic: Yozakura has very ''weird'' standards; she isn't against groping, so long its done right. The two times she says you can grope someone are behind closed doors with the one you love... or on a mission with unsuspecting guard. Because doing it all the time 'cheapens the whole thing'.
** Also, she states kicking is only for men or uncouth girls; feminine women punch things instead.
* KamehameHadoken: Hell Paradise Ten Thousand Hand Fist
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNPwikdL4TM Floral Freedom]]
* LimitBreak:
** 1,000 Palm Fists of Paradise
** 10,000 Palm Fists of Paradise Hell
** Namu Amida (''Shinovi Versus'')
** Shin Namu Amida (''Estival Versus'')
* MassiveNumberedSiblings: She has about eleven other siblings, with her saying that she and the rest of her siblings were born in a span of nine years.
* MightyGlacier: Very good offense, but very slow movement and attack speed.
* PromotionToParent: After her mother died, Yozakura was forced to act as a parent to all of her younger siblings. She was demoted when her father died.
* PowerFist: While already devastating, her gauntlets can double in size to fire blasts of energy.
* RapidfireFisticuffs: Enhanced by a pair of PowerFist gauntlets.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Minori's red oni.
* ShapingYourAttacks: The last of her Ninpo releases a giant pair of energy fists that will swing around and smash anything in range.
* TeamMom: In the earliest part of ''Shinovi Versus''' Gessen storyline, there's some friendly dispute between her and Yumi over who the team leader actually is, since Yozakura is clearly this.
* TelescopingRobot: Notice how large her gloves are already? They can grow even larger.
* TrickedOutGloves: She uses giant iron gauntlets to fight (imagine PowerFist meets ArmCannon or PileBunker, minus the spike). [[ImpossiblyCoolWeapon She likes her weapons so much]] than she go to great lengths to prove their effectiveness to a skeptical Yumi.
** Not only that, but she also reveals that the weapons were made with a pair of greaves, but she has no idea where they ended up. Go ahead and ''guess'' who's using them.
** Apparently, her previous weapon was the spear.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
* YouKilledMyFather: She shares a more complex variation on this trope with Katsuragi.

She has a lot of friends that she likes to hang out with and won't pass up the opportunity to go shopping. Despite her appearance, she is very studious & IT savvy. Wielding a disc-shaped scythe larger than her body, her flashy attack style involves hacking foes and summoning bats. Shiki also specializes in poisoning her adversaries.

* BadassBookworm: Shiki has an obsession towards the Heart Sutra. She also insists on reading Mirai's novel after defeating her, and spares her life so she can finish writing it.
* BeautyMark: On the bottom right side of her lips.
* ButNotTooForeign: [[AllThereInTheManual Official Design Works]] reveal that her mother was Japanese but her father was Romanian.
* CuteWitch[=/=]HotWitch: One half of her Shinobi outfit's theme.
* DumbBlonde: [[DefiedTrope Defied]]. She tells Yagyu that "just 'cause I'm blonde doesn't mean I don't notice things, you know?"
* GeniusBruiser[=/=]WarriorTherapist: Shiki has extensive knowledge of many ninja arts and techniques. With that knowledge, she's able to deduce what kind of techniques her opponents possess and how they can use them. Additionally, Shiki's very good at giving her team advice whenever they need it.
* GlassCannon: While she does possess a good damage game, Shiki suffers from having average health and defense.
* GrimReaper: The other half of her outfit's theme.
* HiddenDepths: While some of the girls are definitely this, Shiki runs with this trope. Externally, she appears to be just a very dumb valley girl who loves fashion more than being a Shinobi. As her story is revealed, however, we find out that Shiki is not only very intelligent, she embraces her grandfather's philosophy as much as the other girls, and recites the Heart Sutra as it gives her comfort.

* SinisterScythe
* SmarterThanYouLook: More serious than what her looks (a fashion-obsessed girl who loves to play with her friends) may suggest.
* TheSocialExpert
* ThemeNaming: Her Ninja Arts are puns based on different Buddhism sayings.
* ValleyGirl: Of the Kogal kind. She is an outgoing and casual girl who is fashionable, wears more makeup than most of the other girls and can be seen chatting on her cellphone quite a bit, so she qualifies. Unlike most examples however she is not dumb. Look at SmarterThanYouLook.
* VaporWear: Her turnover outfit seems to be made of her bats, completely going nude to summon them all to attack for her in her Ultimate Ninpo. [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Just like Morrigan Aensland]].
* VocalDissonance: Look at Shiki's face. Those sharp eyes, the Beauty Mark, even her transformation showcasing a Grim Reaper theme, her ninja costume which seems to be made of garterbelts only, none of this would prepare you for the voice she has - it sounds like that of a small child.

!!Kagura Thousand-Year Festival Executives

[[quoteright:152:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kagura_thousand_year_festival_executives_emblem.png]]
[[caption-width-right:152:The Shamans]]

A group of shaman shinobi formed by Asuka's grandmother and the Mikagura sisters.

!!Related to all Kagura Festival shinobi:
* DragonWithAnAgenda: [[spoiler:The Mikagura Sisters are essentially this to Sayuri. While Sayuri's original plan was to force the shinobi girls into the Shinobi Bon Dance so she can teach them her own beliefs of being a Kagura, the sisters only want to meet a certain shinobi girl they've met in their childhood who died fighting a Youma, and even then, they only participate just to stall time so they can search for her. Keeping it a secret from Sayuri over fears that she may find out about it. Once they do make contact with the girl (sort of), her voice convinces the sisters to pursue their own path to becoming a Kagura, prompting them to participate in the Shinobi Bon Dance more seriously.]]
* UnexpectedCharacter: They managed to pull this off twice. The first time was their reveal in Famitsu magazine during Estival Versus' development period, while the second time comes from their addition to ''New Wave''.

[[caption-width-right:350: She's still got it.]]

-->''Welcome to the Kagura Thousand-Year Festival, young Shinobi.''

The wife of the eponymous Hanzo Academy’s founder and Asuka’s grandmother. Strong enough to put even Hanzo in his place, Sayuri is a tremendously powerful woman who still has a soft spot for her granddaughter. Lately, she’s been traveling around the country alongside the Mikagura sisters as a priestess for the festival. She was also once the target of Kurokage’s affections, over which Hanzo routinely fought him over years and years ago.

----
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: She asks each of the girls if they could readily put aside their emotions in order to [[ColdEquation make the best choice]] when in life-or-death situations.
* AscendedExtra: In Burst, Asuka used her name as a threat against Hanzo when he was being perverted at the hot springs. In Estival Versus, she makes a full appearance as a boss character of all things.
* BerserkButton: Do not threat her like she was some old hag unless you want to be blown away by her.
* BlowYouAway: She mainly fights by generating gusts of wind and tornadoes.
* CastFromLifespan: She uses a special Shinobi Transformation which has the unfortunate side-effect of shaving off the user's overall lifespan.
* ClothingDamage: Averted, you cannot tear away her clothes. [[FanDisservice Probably for the best]].
* DualAgeModes: Can transfrom from her old woman self to back to her prime as a young adult.
* FountainOfYouth: She's able to make her appear younger. [[spoiler: Which is contrast to Kagura]].
* FreudianExcuse: She's pretty pushy about the girls learning to suppress their emotions in order to better fight Yoma. [[spoiler: It's thanks to her teammates getting killed by a Yoma when she hesitated while trying to decide whether she should prioritize saving them or killing the Yoma. The Yoma managed to both kill her teammates and escape thanks to her hesitation.]]
* IconicItem: Her pipes; in her old age, she'll ride her giant pipe like a witch's broomstick (side-saddle, even).
%%* MightyGlacier
* NeverMessWithGranny: Keep in mind that this is the same woman who can make even ''Hanzo'' submit to her just by the mentioning of her name alone. Asuka's threatening to tell Sayuri about Hanzo's DirtyOldMan antics [[KnowWhenToFoldEm is more than enough to stop him cold]].
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: She calls the girls naive idiots when they argue against her ArmorPiercingQuestion, but urges them to find their own path nonetheless.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: It pretty much runs in the family.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Downplayed. Notice how Sayuri's clothes echo the color scheme of Asuka's shinobi uniform (yellow shirt, green dress, red ScarfOfAsskicking).

[[caption-width-right:302: Cuteness does not compute.]]

-->''It's summer! Festival! Fighting Time!''

The eldest daughter of the three Mikagura sisters. She has the spirit of a true Tokyoite. While sometimes strong-minded, her sex appeal remains prominent. She dislikes effeminate and cutesy things.

The middle child among the Mikagura sisters, Hanabi acts and speaks just how she thinks. An energetic and athletic girl, she’s not one for subtlety in her thinking, only able to think in a straightforward manner. Asking her any tough questions just might end up making her literally blow up. When it’s all said and done, while she’s not the sharpest tool in the shed, she’s nonetheless self-aware of her actions and feels bad when she does something wrong. She also happens to be well versed in all things pertaining to gunpowder. As for her weapon, she uses a gigantic hammer.

"[[StuffBlowingUp DOKAN!]]"

Kafuru is the youngest of the Mikagura sisters. A girl with a selfish and calculating streak, she often speaks to others in a condescending manner, riling them up. Whether it’s through her fluent use of Internet slang or clever use of baby talk, her mockery knows no bounds. That being said, she knows better than to try and adopt those same mannerisms with her sisters, though she is known to tease Hanabi from time to time. She has a chest that’s neither big nor particularly small.

With her ability to use water to her advantage, Kafuru can annihilate a wide area foes. She can even summon her dolphin in some of her ninja arts.

[[folder:Murasame]]

!Murasame

[[quoteright:278:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/murasame_2_4372.jpg]]

Murasame is the son of the Houou family and Ikaruga is his adopted sister. He failed to become the heir of his family's legacy due to a perceived lack of shinobi skills - something his sister has in abundance, which he used to resent her something ''fierce'' for. He wishes that the two of them could put their differences aside, but every time they are together they seem to argue. He's a fourth year at a prestigious economic university where he proves himself to be an excellent businessman.

His weapon of choice is a chain-sickle - and since he won 6th place in a weapon proficiency championship it has not left his side.

-> Date of Birth: 6th of June
-> Age: 22
-> Blood Type: O
-> Height: 180 cm

-> Favorite Food: Curry
-> Ninja Animal: Unknown
-> Weapon: Handmade Kusarigama
-->[-VA: Creator/HirokiYasumoto (Japanese, Anime), Kanehira Yamamoto (Japanese, Game), Creator/ScottFreeman (English)-]
-----

* AxCrazy: Well, he did break into his adopted sister's bedroom, and tried to hurt her just to take back their family heirloom by force... ''twice''. He can also fly off the handle sometimes. (He's gotten much better, though).
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: He was first seen on the anime where, in line with his status as antagonist, he had a positively deranged [[http://i.imgur.com/TG60sGh.jpg aspect]]. Contrast it with his official render for [[http://i.imgur.com/b4QyDVs.png Deep Crimson]] (some time after his Heel-Face Turn) where he's a player character and looks really handsome.
* {{Bishonen}}: Say what you will about Murasame, but he's definitely a looker.
* BrotherSisterTeam: Gradually becoming more of one with Ikaruga. Notably, his only combination attack can be done with her.
* CharacterDevelopment: In Shinovi Versus [[spoiler: he starts making an active effort to get along with Ikaruga more, to the point where he attended a seminar intended to strengthen sibling bonds.]]
** On ''Deep Crimson'' [[spoiler: He follows Ikaruga to Kyoto and he puts a theatre to get Yomi and Ikaruga closer]]
* {{Fiction 500}}: While the family is prominent in the world of ninja, they are equally prominent in the world of finance. While he sucks at being a shinobi, he excels at business, which his father recognizes.
* GenderSwap: In ''Estival Versus'' there will be a ''female'' version of Murasame available, identical in almost every way to standard Murasame except with visible cleavage. [[spoiler:April Fool's!]]
* GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger: Gives a Phoenix Wright style one to Ikaruga and Yomi.
* GreenEyedMonster: He was an excellent example back in the day, burning over the resentment of being a no-talent that had to be replaced. He successfully managed to convince himself that Ikaruga ''stole'' Hien from him. (He just as notably worked himself ''out'' of this).
* HarmlessVillain: Back when he was still consumed with his grudge over Ikaruga displacing him as heir to the family's AncestralWeapon ''Hien'', he once broke into Ikaruga's room and foolishly challenged her for Hien. She dropped him through a trapdoor.
* HiddenDepths: Despite his incompetence as a ninja, he is actually a phenomenal student and businessman.
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: He's quite insecure about how he pales as a shinobi to Ikaruga, and constantly tries to prove himself to be better than she is. He does end up taking comfort with the fact that he can say he's smarter than she is with him graduating a business course in college.
* JapaneseSiblingTerminology: Despite his grudge against her, Ikaruga still feels conflicted about the situation as she simply just wants to get along with him. She even refers to him as Onii-sama.
* JerkAss: Despite character development, he's still full of himself.
* JokeCharacter: Very much so in ''Senran Kagura 2''. He's got a massive case of WhatTheFuAreYouDoing, suffers the exact same ClothingDamage mechanics as the girls (down to a single pair of white bikini briefs), has only one special and one CombinationAttack (in which Ikaruga does most of the work), no Shinobi Transformation to speak of, and still manages to be a pompous twit nonetheless. In a world with competent and lethal shinobi, he can somehow manage to hold his own.
** LethalJokeCharacter: Surprisingly though, Murasame is actually quite useful as a support character. A lot of his attacks have MercyInvincibility (which normally occurs for the rest of the cast only during their specials); one example is his heavy aerial attack (head-diving straight down and getting stuck up to his neck), which has so much MI, it can be used to avoid multiple attacks. And his heavy attack (swinging his sickle around multiple times) has range what only some Secret Ninja Arts can match, allowing him to shred mooks into pieces all around himself.
* TheKlutz: He's considered a failure for a reason. Most of his moves involve some combination of hitting himself or tripping.
* LateArrivalSpoiler: ''Deep Crimson'' naturally assumes you know about his HeelFaceTurn in ''Shinovi Versus''.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0rRI0xVD6k Power of 6th Place]]
* LimitBreak:
** Hien Housen: Mode Zero
** The Best Combination (With Ikaruga, ''Deep Crimson'')
* LimpAndLivid: The fact that Murasame is almost ''always'' in this position says a lot about his personality.
* MilesGloriosus: Talks a big game and is ''incredibly'' confident in himself, but is thoroughly outclassed by almost everyone.
* MrFanservice: WordOfGod [[http://www.siliconera.com/2014/06/27/senran-kagura-producer-fan-service-male-character-senran-kagura-2/ stated]] that Murasame gets the same sexy treatment that the girls get. He even mentions perusing certain material in order to get the form right for Murasame's {{fanservice}} scenes.
* OldSaveBonus: You can unlock him in ''Deep Crimson'' with data from a ''Burst'' save. Otherwise, he's DLC.
* TheOneGuy: While not the only male character, he ''is'' the only playable one currently.
* PaperTiger: Just from a glance you could be forgiven for mistaking him for cool and competent, when in reality he's a pompous loser with next to no skill.
* ProgressivelyPrettier: He has two major phases of design, (1) deranged BeadyEyedLoser and (2) MrFanservice.
* PromotedToPlayable: ''Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson'' marks his first playable appearance, as well as the first male to be playable in the series.
* SatelliteCharacter: More or less defined solely by his relationship with Ikaruga.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: In ''Shinovi Versus'' he mentions that the family is a major donor to the school and so he can practically waltz his way in to the secret ninja school by simply name-dropping ''himself''. This is presumably how he snuck into Ikaruga's room earlier in the series.
* StockNinjaWeaponry: He uses a Kusarigama with (perhaps) some skill.
* TallDarkAndHandsome: Following his character development, he's become quite good looking.
* {{Tsundere}}: He ''does'' care about his sister, he's just very hesitant to show it.
* TheUnfavorite: [[spoiler:His family thinks he's good for nothing and not capable of inheriting their heirloom katana Hien. Which was why they adopted Ikaruga, who was far more talented, meaning her to inherit the blade and succeed the family as a strong shinobi. He was ''not pleased'' with this, and tried to take Hien from Ikaruga, believing himself to be the rightful inheritor. His efforts were always futile.]]
* UpperClassTwit: Even after his Heel-Face Turn, he's still a pompous twit. If he doesn't know who you are (even if you happen to be ''Master Hanzo himself''), he'll assume your name wasn't worth knowing in the first place.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: He wears an open coat, which is his only outfit.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Desperately seeks his father's approval, to the point of madness. Proving himself as an outstanding businessman gained him some respect, which in turn made him a nicer guy, but he's still clearly got a chip on his shoulder.
* WhatTheFuAreYouDoing: Playable or no, his parents weren't exactly wrong when they decided he was [[TheKlutz lacking in talent]]. In ''Deep Crimson'', a lot of his combos involve him attacking wildly, kicking dirt, tripping over his chains or getting wrapped up in them. Heck, he'll whack himself in the head ''during his IdleAnimation''.

A young girl whose name happens to have great significance in the shinobi world. While on a school trip, Asuka and her friends found her being chased by yōma and saved her. At first glance, she speaks like a child, but she says things that no child would. Lacking almost any ability to defend herself, she relies on her guardian Naraku for protection.

* DemonSlaying: [[spoiler: Kagura's entire existence is devoted to the eradication of Yoma. It's implied that the highest shinobi rank, Kagura (given to shinobi who specialize in Yoma Hunting), is named after her.]]
** [[spoiler: Though it's worth noting the Kagura rank has only been brought up in the ''Versus'' games, and it's unclear if it exists in ''Deep Crimson'''s timeline. Although the evidence so far points towards the Kagura rank not existing. On ''Deep Crimson'' Hinin is the highest rank "on the record books", while Hanzo states during his fight with Dougen that the resurrection orb would grant him power comparable to a Hinin without all the effort and training required for it]]
* DualAgeModes: Has the ability switch between a little girl, a teenager, and an adult.
* EmotionalMaturityIsPhysicalMaturity: [[spoiler:Even though she is over 900 years old (overall age) or less than year old (current reincarnation), her mental state is tied to the state of her physical form. Notable in the Waistdeep DLC where when she reverts from her adult form to her child form, her mentality is reverted back to that of a child.]]
* ExoticEyeDesigns: Her irises look like seven-petalled flower inside two rings.

* LivingMacGuffin: Is not only being hunted by the yoma, but [[spoiler:by the Hanzo girls who are send to capture, if not outright kill her. Though her true identity is actually that of a MacGuffinTurnedHuman or MacGuffinSuperPerson.]]
* PhlebotinumOverdose: [[spoiler:If she keeps on consuming Red Orbs even after she is fully awakened, she will cause a massive explosion before turning back into the Reincarnation Orb]].
* PromotedToPlayable: She and Naraku were confirmed to be upcoming DLC characters in Estival Versus.
* PsychoticSmirk: [[spoiler:Her third and final forms both have this as her expression in their artwork, but it's not really seen in-game until Estival Versus.]]
* SpaceMaster: [[spoiler:Her powers is described as her being able to manipulate space, which she uses to create portals to fire black-red blades, teleport and even "[[InterfaceScrew flip the world upside down]]".]]
* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: In ''Deep Crimson'', she's seen gleefully crushing a fallen Youma underfoot.
* WalkingSpoiler: Hoo, boy.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: She's surprisingly literate for a girl who's very young.
* WomanInWhite: [[spoiler: In her first two forms. After that, her clothes turn black.]]

!Tsumuji

[[quoteright:243:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tmp_29861_fimg011_11483198922.jpg]]

A first year at Hebijo Academy. She is the younger sister of Komichi, the evil shinobi who tried to kill Homura and who was almost killed by the result. Because of that, she wants revenge on Homura for the sake of her brother.
----
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:Saves Homura from Dōgen's attack when she is about to get brainwashed.]]
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Ends up dying in the hands of Dōgen in the Crimson Squad's story in ''Shinovi Versus''.]]
* NoNameGiven: She was originally not given a name when she is brought up in ''Skirting Shadow''. Even in ''Crimson Girls'' where there is a mission from her, she is addressed as [[MyNameIsQuestionMarks "????"]]. Only in ''Shinovi Versus'' does she have a name.
* {{Revenge}}: Wants to avenge her brother for what Homura did to him. Unfortunately, Homura constantly outsmarts her.
* {{Tsundere}}: Hikage outright thinks that she's a tsundere, being confused by the fact that even though Tsumuji hates Homura, she seems to still hang around with her.

!Orochi

[[quoteright:347:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sk_ghosts_5265.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:261:[[labelnote:Click here]][[quoteright:261:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ahhhhhhh.jpg]][[/labelnote]] for spoilers.]]

The FinalBoss of Skirting Shadows, and the final [[WombLevel stage]] of Crimson Girls. In Shinovi Versus, Orochi is revealed to be a Yoma summoned by Dōgen to be used as a weapon of war.
----
* BossRush: In Crimson Girls, you must fight each of the possessed Hebijo students after defeating Asuka.
* CameBackStrong:In a fashion, the creature you face on ''Burst'' and ''Deep Crimson'' first chapter is an incomplete version. The second time you face it, is its true form.
* DemonicPossession: Does this to the Hebijo students in Crimson Girls, requiring Homura to defeat her comrades in order to set them free. Implied to also be the case in Skirting Shadows.
* DemotedToExtra: The closest thing it gets to an appearance in the anime is a three-minute cameo as Dōgen's Ninpo, "Giant Serpent".
* EldritchAbomination: Where to start? It seems to be one-third humanoid giant, one-third dragon, and one-third Humongous Mecha. Four of its five necks have no heads on them, instead ending in great masses of bloodstained katanas. It has two bizarre mechanical appendages that can only be described as giant tennis rackets covered in bloodstained katanas. On its central neck is the head of a mecha-dragon, covered in bloodstained katanas, and in the head's mouth is a human face, contorted with rage. Oh, and the sound of its roar is mixed with a baby crying.
** EldritchLocation: Its insides, see WombLevel below. It's a weird red version of the normal world with odd features like floating interfaces in the background and rotating gears on the floor. It also has inexplicable grassy meadows and you can hear Orochi's heartbeat wherever you go.
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: In Crimson Girls, regardless of which character you select the mission with, you will always control Homura during the brief "meadow sequences" leading to the fight against each possessed Hebijo student.
* GiantSpaceFleaOutOfNowhere: You thought that Crimson Homura was the final boss of ''Skirting Shadows''? Nope! Have a EldritchAbomination instead.
* {{Orochi}}: Probably one of the more horrifying renditions of the good old eight-headed serpent.
* TailSlap: A really powerful one at that. In ''Burst'', it can shred through half of your clothing bar in one strike.
* TookALevelInBadass: A curious example since it happens both in-universe and from a gameplay design.
** Its first appearance on ''Burst'' has it like an static boss with a limited range of attacks. ''Deep Crimson'' retelling of that battle overhauls its moveset completely, giving it mobility and a whole new set of attacks.
** Plot-wise, the creature you face is an incomplete form, with its complete form making an appearance on the final chapter of ''Deep Crimson'' as one of the hardest bosses on the franchise.
* WalkingSpoiler: There is a lot what can be said about her(?) and one of them isn't expected.
* WarmUpBoss: Oddly enough, the tutorial for Crimson Girls pits it against Homura in a nightmare sequence.
* WaveMotionGun: One of its attacks is a massive laser beam that can only be avoided by remaining airborne or hiding in a specific spot.
* WombLevel: In Crimson Girls, the final mission takes place inside its body.
* YouDontLookLikeYou: Orochi's brief appearance in the anime looks like five gigantic white worms with {{Lamprey Mouth}}s, four eyes and claws growing around the mouth and its body being covered in flames.
