''Under Night In-Birth'' is a UsefulNotes/{{H|ighDefinition}}D 2D FightingGame made by French Bread, the makers of ''Videogame/MeltyBlood'', originally released on September 20, 2012 in arcades. It later received an update under the title ''Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late'' on September 9th 2013, which rebalanced the roster, updated graphics, and added several new characters such as Chaos and [[VideoGame/AkatsukiBlitzkampf Akatsuki]]. A UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 port was released on July 24, 2014, and [[http://shoryuken.com/2014/07/04/aksys-games-bringing-under-night-in-birth-exelate-to-north-america-in-2015/ would eventually be localized in 2015]] in North Amercia, with Europe getting the game a few days later. It was later released, in it's Exe:Late form, on Steam on June 12, 2016.

''Under Night'' is shaping up to be the SpiritualSuccessor of the ''Melty Blood'' series, in the same vein of ''Franchise/BlazBlue'' to ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'', and features Sion Eltnam Atlasia as a guest character under the name "Eltnum".

The roster includes:
* Hyde: TheHero of the series. Wields a long sword with the power to end the existence of whatever it cuts.
* Linne: CuteBruiser who wields a knife and a long sword and seeks to end her [[BodyBackupDrive immortality]].
* Waldstein: Hulking white [[AnimeHair Anime Haired]] giant who wields giant [[SpiderMan Dr. Octopus-like]] tentacles as glove extensions, [[WrestlerInAllOfUs he is the resident grappler]]. While he looks evil, in truth he's one of the good guys.
* Carmine: AxCrazy dude who fights by [[BloodyMurder manipulating his own blood]].
* Orie: Blue-haired LadyOfWar fighting with a rapier and a [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Stand]]-like entity.
* Gordeau: A stylish man in dark purple coat, able to summon a huge [[SinisterScythe scythe]] out of whim.
* Merkava: An... alien-like creature bearing resemblance to [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion the Angels of Evangelion]]. While he retains his human consciousness, his inability to generate EXS means he [[ImAHumanitarian has to eat people]] to restore it.
* Vatista: TokenMiniMoe, floats and fights people with magic
* Seth: Cold, brooding young assassin who fights like a ninja and wields two daggers with abilities opposite to Hyde's sword.
* Yuzuriha: Busty, boisterous oriental lady who fights with a long-ass katana.
* Hilda: WingedHumanoid who wields the PowerOfTheVoid, and is possibly the BigBad.
* Eltnum: GuestFighter from "[[VideoGame/MeltyBlood a certain town]]".
* Chaos: An unknown [[TheBeastmaster Beast Master]], happens to have a relation to both Hilda and Gordeau.
* Akatsuki: GuestFighter, who is also [[VideoGame/AkatsukiBlitzkampf a long way from home]].

The console version boasts a few new exclusive characters:
* Nanase: A young schoolgirl who is pursuing Hyde for unknown reasons, wielding a {{BFS}} and [[BlowYouAway the power of wind]]. Brought to arcades for the EXE: Late update.
* Byakuya: An enigmatic young man that really is [[SpiderPeople a spider-esque being]], whom hunts down and slaughters people. Brought to arcades for the EXE: Late update.
* Phonon: Based off of and brought back from a discarded character concept. A girl with headphones who wields [[WhipItGood a snake-headed whip]]. Added in the EXE: Late[st] update.
* Mika: A PintSizedPowerhouse, who wields massive gauntlets. Is part of Orie's "Execution Team", and seeks to help out with her current mission. Added in the second EXE: Late[st] update.
* Enkidu: A BareFistedMonk, and one of Hilda's accomplices in Amnesia. After finding no further challenge in human opponents, he entered the Hollow Night to seek out supernatural ones instead. Added in the third EXE: Late[st] update.

''Under Night In-Birth'' is a UsefulNotes/{{H|ighDefinition}}D 2D FightingGame made by French Bread, the makers of ''Videogame/MeltyBlood'', ''Videogame/MeltyBlood''. ''Under Night'' appears to be the SpiritualSuccessor of the ''Melty Blood'' series, as the game was originally developed as an HD port of the latter. The game even features Sion Eltnam Atlasia as a guest character under the name "Eltnum".

Under Night In-Birth takes place in a fictional modern-day setting some time in the 21st century. A phenomenon called the Hollow Night (虚ろの夜 utsuro no yoru) has been enveloping particular regions of Japan once a month for several centuries. Each area engulfed in the Hollow Night is beset by shadow-like creatures called Voids (虚無 kyomu) that utilize and feed upon a power known as "Existence", or EXS (イグジス igujisu). Normal humans cannot see or come into contact with Voids, but certain people have the potential to perceive them. Those who acquire this perception are targeted by Voids and risk either being consumed by them or losing their sanity. Under special circumstances, a person who maintains their sanity after being attacked by a Void can become a being known as an In-Birth (インヴァース invāsu). While this status places a person into a sort of limbo where they are neither living nor dead, they also gain the ability to control Existence. [[TheHero Hyde]], is one character who survived a Void attack and became an In-Birth.

Many characters are involved with the Hollow Night phenomenon, and several of them are affiliated with particular organizations. Two rival groups, the Yatō (夜刀) and Licht Kreis, both serve to maintain order in areas affected by the Hollow Night but differ in their methods. The tarnished Yatō primarily hunt Voids, while Licht Kreis uses its lawful order and hierarchy to protect civilians. A third organization, Amnesia, is more chaotically structured and seeks to stop the influence of both the Yatō and Licht Kreis.

** Because of her existence, there are a few things from Eltnum that pay Homage to her ten years as a combatant in ''Melty Blood'', with her theme being the biggest one, [[BootstrappedTheme which is a remix of Blood Drain, Melty Blood Actress Again's title theme]]. [[spoiler: There is also the small fact that Eltnum [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall lives on the Forth Wall]] in story mode, having fought for ten years... she sees herself as viewing how the "next generation" stacks to herself. As such, she views her relationships with other characters as something of a SempaiKohai relationship, especially with Hyde. [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Just about everyone brushes her off as insane]]]]. And [[spoiler: She is finally free of that Goddamn [[{{Nasuverse}} Shroom]] (read one: Kinoko Nasu) in her ending.]]
