[[folder:Debuting in ''Arcana Heart'']]
!!Heart Aino
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arcana_heart_heart_2712.png
->'''Default Arcana:''' Partinias (Love)
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MikakoTakahashi
The mascot of the series, a complete ditz and a loyal worshipper of ThePowerOfLove. Her purpose is... to be just there to help her friends when they're down, but in the process, she makes herself fair game to people who seem to desire her power (or her pureness) for something.
----
* AnimeHair
* BadassAdorable: Sweet, friendly, and able to kick ass.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* CrossOver: In an official April Fools' Flash Game by Arc Systems Works and Examu, Heart is on a date with [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Ragna The Bloodedge]]. She also makes a guest appearance in ''Bururaji'', complete with chibi [=BlazBlue=]-style sprite. Come ''3'' she also starts learning moves seemingly ripped straight off Ragna. It pretty much helps that [[Creator/MikakoTakahashi her]] and [[Creator/TomokazuSugita Ragna's]] voice actors had [[RelationshipVoiceActor a history of voicing roles together]].
* {{Determinator}}: Once she makes up her mind on doing something, nothing seems to be able to stop the kid.
* GoodIsDumb: As her name would imply, Heart is a very kind, loving and righteous girl, but she's also as sharp as a bag of hammers.
* TheHeart: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Why of course.]] Among other things, she's the only reason Saki hasn't [[DespairEventHorizon went off the deep end]] [[BreakTheCutie after all that's happened to her]].
* {{The Hero}}ine: Of her FiveManBand with Saki, Maori, Yoriko and Lilica.
* {{Idiot Hero}}ine
* JackOfAllStats
* IdiotHair: Heart shaped, even.
* LoveFreak
* MartialPacifist
* MeaningfulName: Her name in Japanese order has a meaning akin to "heart of love".
* MovesetClone: Or more like [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Ragna and Jin]] would be more appropriate -- Heart is the Ragna to Saki's Jin.
* NiceGirl
* TheNicknamer
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Saki and Weiß' blue.
* ThePowerOfLove: Literally -- most of her moves have "love" and "heart" in the name. Partinias is also [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower Heart-elemental]].
* [[RedHeadedHero Red Headed Heroine]]
* ShoutOut: Some of her palettes make her resemble [[LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex Mikoto Misaka, Accelerator]], [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Yukiko Amagi]], [[Manga/ShinryakuIkaMusume Sanae Nagatsuki]], [[LightNovel/ToraDora Minori Kushieda]] and [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Madoka Kaname]].
* {{Shotoclone}}: An unusual variation in that she technically has no projectiles of her own, but relies on an Arcana for them. Most (but not all) Arcanas have projectiles, however, including her default one, so she still qualifies.
** Especially since her default arcana has Ryu's projectiles. The serial numbers are barely even filed off.
* ZettaiRyouiki
----

!!Saki Tsuzura
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arcana_heart_saki_2931.png
->'''Default Arcana:''' Bhanri (Lightning)

Heart's aloof best friend (though she won't admit) who has gone studying in England, where she befriended Fiona, whom she unfortunately lost during the separation of the Elemental World.

----

* BrokenBird
* DarkAndTroubledPast
* DeadpanSnarker
* CaptainErsatz: She really looked a bit like [[KannazukiNoMiko Chikane Himemiya]] with lighter tint of hair and the same protective instinct.
* ChargedAttack: Every of her specials. Even the 'Hold Up' and 'Hold Forward' ones. Excepting her special sidestep.
* ClothingDamage: If she's defeated by a super move, her tights get ripped in a few places.
* CryCute: At the end of her story in ''3'', she broke down in tears upon realizing that all her efforts to gain the sacred stones to turn Fiona back to human was a complete failure, and the rumors behind it could be lies. Thank God there's Heart to cheer her up.
* ExtremityExtremist: Prefers to fight with her feet.
* TheLancer: Of Heart's FiveManBand, along with Maori, Yoriko and Lilica.
* LittleMissSnarker
* MovesetClone: Or more like [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Ragna and Jin]] would be more appropriate -- Saki is the Jin to Heart's Ragna.
* MyGreatestFailure: The loss of Fiona into the spirit world.
* ProperTightsWithASkirt
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Heart's red.
* ShockAndAwe
* ShoutOut: Some of her palettes resemble [[VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}} Akiha Tohno]], [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Homura Akemi]], [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Millia Rage or Ky Kiske]] and [[Manga/KannazukiNoMiko Chikane Himemiya]].
* SugarAndIcePersonality
* TallDarkAndSnarky
* TheStoic: Usually.
** NotSoStoic: More often than not, when around Heart. Or regarding Fiona.
* ThemeNaming: Most of her attacks are named after legendary western weapons like "Brionac", "Claimh Solais", etc.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type A -- very heavy on the tsuntsun (AKA giving the cold shoulder), but very prone to going deredere around Heart.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have to be Heights?]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

->'''Default Arcana:''' Tempestas (Wind)

A girl who got her [=PhD=] at the ImprobableAge of ''eleven'', Kira has large intentions... as in WorldDomination. She fights Mildred with her trusty blob for getting in the way with that.
----

* BattleButler
* {{BFS}}: Wields one that's larger than she is.
* CuteBruiser
* DifficultButAwesome: Her level 3 is a rekka that not only has two types of complicated inputs (in the first and last parts of the chain), but the last part of the chain requires strict timing. That said, it hits for 75% damage when done properly.

* FragileFlower: Almost always ends up crying after losing to your fighter.
* GlacierWaif
* {{Meido}}
* ShoutOut: Two of her palette swaps resemble [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Alice Margatroid (as she appears in the PC-98 games)]] and [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear May]].
----

!!Mildred Avallone
->'''Voiced by:''' Yukiko Kikuchi
A woman with an ambition of merging the human and elemental worlds and gain god-like powers. She is fought at the end of any route, and, unsurprisingly, is the [[SNKBoss hardest character]] [[NintendoHard to beat]] in the whole game, given that she has many unblockable attacks.
----

* DarkIsNotEvil
* FireForgedFriends: See Elsa's entry.
* EyesAlwaysShut
** RedEyesTakeWarning: If those eyes open, beware. The ground even shakes when her eyes open for added effect.
* FragileSpeedster: The most frail character this side of Scharlachrot, but she also has one of the fastest attacks in the game.
* NunTooHoly: Besides the fact that she's a ''demon'' (or perhaps ''because'' of that fact), she tends to act immoral at times (though she usually means well).
* PsychoticSmirk: On the extremely rare occasion that she [[EyesAlwaysShut opens]] [[RedEyesTakeWarning her eyes]], her benevolent looking smile evolves into one. Simply put, you don't want this.
* SayItWithHearts: Or... musical tones, if her text is any indication.
* ShoutOut: Some of her alternate colors make her look like [[Manga/ChronoCrusade Rosette Christopher (herself another combat nun)]], [[Anime/CodeGeass CC]], [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Bridget]] and [[LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex Index Librorum Prohibitorum]].

* ChildProdigy

* {{Eagleland}}
* HumongousMecha
* ImprobableAge
* KansaiRegionalAccent: Which is pretty impressive when you consider that she's actually an American (though of Japanese descent). And yes, her decidedly non-American accent gets [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] occasionally.

* TheRival: To Kira.
* ShoutOut: Her design and color scheme pretty much screams of a loli, non-pudgy [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog Dr. Eggman]].

* SexySpectacles: In her human form.
* SNKBoss: Tops even Mildred herself in the cheapness department, and when reappearing in ''3's'' score attack mode, has earned the title as being one of the most ridiculous examples of this in recent memory, possibly even putting most of {{SNK}} ''[[UpToEleven themeselves to shame]]''.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Let's face it, she only wears a cape, and one square piece of cloth protecting her modesty. Now ''that's'' Stripperiffic.
* TrueFinalBoss

[[folder:Debuting in ''Arcana Heart 3'']]
!!Weiß
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arcana_heart_weiss_1156.png
->'''Default Arcana:''' Gottfried (Sword)
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MiyukiSawashiro
An agent of "Valkyria", a branch of the Drexler Institute. She is fortunately saved by Petra and now works as her agent. She's out to save her fellow "Valkyria" agent Scharlachrot.
----
* AnimalMecha: Gottfried. [[spoiler:It was actually a construct.]]
* [[spoiler:[[ArtificialHuman Artificial Arcana]]: Gottfried turns out to be a construct based on Tyr, Norse god of war.]]
* BadassAdorable: Outside battle, she's a complete, adorable klutz who knows ''nothing'' about social life.
* BowtiesAreCool: She even keeps it on if she gets turned into a blob by [[{{CastingAShadow}} Gier's]] [[{{Limit Break}} Arcana Blaze]].
* GratuitousGerman: It's [[NoPronunciationGuide pronounced Vice]], and means White.
* IJustWantToBeNormal
* IJustWantToHaveFriends
* NotGoodWithPeople: Knows next to nothing about society, having grown up in Drexler where she has barely any contact of the outside world. She is currently working to adjust.
* ShoutOut[=/=]{{Homage}}
** One of her supers lets her ride one of her expanded-sized swords to attack her opponent, reminding many of [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Jin Kisaragi]] "surfing" on sword-shaped ice blocks. Her own theme, "White Valkyria", also sounds like Jin's "Lust SIN".
** Her design is also similar to [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Dark Saber]], specializes in summoning blades out of thin air, and "[[StormOfBlades Extend Force Critical Heart]]" brings to mind the legendary "Unlimited Blade Works".
* [[RideTheLightning Ride The Swordning]]
* RapunzelHair: White-ish, as befits her name.
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue oni to Heart and Scharlachrot's red oni.
* TheStoic: Most of the time.
** NotSoStoic: Has her own share of moments. Particularly, if it involves her friends.
* ThoseWackyNazis: Gottfried's moves are named after infamous Nazi officers.

!!Eko and Kazu
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arcana_heart_eko_9224.png
->'''Default Arcana:''' Saligrama (Luck)
->'''Voiced by:''' Ayumi Tsuji (Eko) and YoshimasaHosoya (Kazu)
A girl with the power to bring life to any immaterial object, her favorite use of which is on drawings, creating in the process her fighting twin Kazu.
----
* [[ABoyAndHisX A Girl and Her Drawing]].
* ArtInitiatesLife: Eko's power. Kazu is a giant child's drawing.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl
* MakeMyMonsterGrow: Eko's [[LimitBreak Critical Heart]].
* ShoutOut: Eko's Critical Heart resembles a Spell Card from the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fighting games. Also, one of her alternate costumes make her resemble [[Videogame/MegaManClassic Roll]].
* TokenMiniMoe

!!Scharlachrot
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arcana_heart_scharlachrot_7187.png
->'''Default Arcana:''' Baldur (Fang)
->'''Voiced by:''' YukiMatsuoka
A girl raised by Drexler Institute alongside Weiß. Unlike the latter, however, she remains under Drexler's thrall, and has been released in order to hunt down Weiß.
----
* AnimalMecha: Her Arcana Baldur. [[spoiler:Also artificially created.]]
* AxCrazy: [[spoiler:Breaks out of it in her ending.]]
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:Drexler forced her to gather enough Celestial Stones to activate Ragnarok. In her story, once you defeat Weiß and Ragnarok powers up, she snaps out of it.]]
* EvilRedhead
* {{Expy}}: She's an AxCrazy lady with a PsychoticSmirk who uses chains, occasionally LaughingMad, is one of the most evil characters in the series ([[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds as much as its standards go]]) who hates the world, and wants to use an AppliedPhlebotinum for that purpose. Pretty much a less FauxAffablyEvil [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Hazama]].
* MeaningfulName: ''Scharlachrot'' means "scarlet red", in reference to her [[CurtainsMatchTheWindow hair/eye color]] as well as her bloodlust.
* NoPronunciationGuide: ''What is her name supposed to be?'' [[note]]German. It's pronounced /ʃarlaxrot/.[[/note]]
* NorseMythology: Her Arcana is named Baldur, and it is apparently in-story based off Fenrir.
* PsychoticSmirk: She frequently has this on.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Weiß's blue.
* ShoutOut: One of her alternate costumes make her resemble Franchise/BlackRockShooter.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Official spelling: Scharlachrot. Because it's too complicated, often spelled as "Schar''harlot''".
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Yeah, really, just look at that getup she's wearing.
* ThoseWackyNazis: Like Weiß, she takes her Arcana move names from prominent Nazi officers. Baldur is not a reference to the [[LightIsGood benevolent Norse god of light]], but to Baldur von Schirach, head of the Hitler Youth. It even has a move called Agosai Schirach (Jawbreaking Schirach).
* {{Yandere}}: For Weiß. [[spoiler:Probably a result of Drexler's brainwashing.]]
----

!!Ragnarok
----
* FinalBoss
* HumongousMecha: [[spoiler:But just like Gottfried and Baldur, it too is but a construct.]]
* TheOneGuy: [[spoiler:Although being an artificial Arcana, he may not count.]]
* TimeLimitBoss: No matter what the game timer is set to, you have 60 seconds to destroy it. If you "win" via timeout, you get the bad ending -- at least losing either by timeout or KO still allows you to continue.
