!!Introduced in Arcade Version

[[folder:Amane Nishiki]]
[[caption-width-right:280:[[DoubleEntendre He'll drill you.]]]]

-->''Let this reach the heavens and earth! And those close by... fall victim to the ultimate embrace!''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/AkiraIshida / Creator/YuriLowenthal

-> Amane is a member of a traveling acting troupe seeking new members. Hearing about a young vigilante, he (yes, '''HE''') sets out in search of Carl to try and recruit him. He is noted to be incredibly vain and obsessed with youth, and fights with a strange plumage than can metamorphose into weapons.

-> His Drive, '''Spiral''', involves morphing his shawl into a drill shape to attack the enemy, utilizing a leveling system to power up his attacks. His Overdrive is '''Cyclone''', which increases the level of his attacks to their maximum amount.

-> His Astral, '''Jakutoku Meika: Gōhahōyō''', traps the opponent inside of a giant flower, which transforms them into their younger selves, which is then revealed momentarily as the flower bursts open. A green, orange and black curtain then slides out, obscuring the view completely.
* {{Bishonen}}: As expected of a character voiced by Creator/AkiraIshida.
* CampGay: If his design doesn't already scream this, his profile is outright confirmation, listing his "Likes" section as "beautiful things (mainly handsome men)." You all have [[Creator/TomokazuSugita Sugita]] to thank for his existence, by the way.
* DetachedSleeves
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Kinda like a traditional-Japanese [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Testament]]...
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:In Story Mode Rachel calls him Uzume[[note]] The Shinto goddess of dawn who danced naked to lure out Amaterasu from her hiding place [[/note]] and is hinted to be an immortal meaning that Amane will become important in the next game.]]
* FountainOfYouth[=/=]BalefulPolymorph: His Astral seems to work this way. [[note]]Ragna turns into his younger self from Story Mode, Jin and Tsubaki turn into their childhood selves from the latter's flashback in her ''CS'' Story Mode, Noel turns into her childhood self from her flashback in ''CS'' Story Mode, Rachel becomes her younger self from ''Phase Shift 1'', Taokaka regresses to a Kaka kitten, Bang becomes a younger version of himself, Carl becomes his younger self from Story Mode but wearing a different outfit seen in a piece of CG artwork and tossing a Nirvana doll, Hakumen becomes "Pakumen", Hazama turns into Kazuma from ''Phase Shift 1'', Makoto turns into her presumed childhood self with a (much) looser top and bike shorts, Valkenhayn becomes his younger self from ''Phase Shift 1'', Platinum is a strange inversion -- she returns to being Trinity, Relius becomes his younger self wearing a classy gentleman's outfit and covering his face, Bullet turns into her childhood self wearing boys' clothing and completely flat, Azrael also reverts to his childhood self who crosses his arm and pretty much not giving a damn, Litchi reverts to a child version with more assertive clothing and still with a boob window showing a big rack for her age, carrying a basket of meat buns, Tager becomes a... wind-up doll of himself, Arakune becomes... the wounded tartar befriended by Lambda-11 in her Gag Reel, Nu-13 becomes a hyperactive little girl passionately hugging a big, two-dimensional Ragna paper doll, Mu-12 becomes similar to Noel, but with the rags she was found in during the ''Calamity Trigger'' story mode opening, Izayoi's transformation is the same as Tsubaki's but with a different colored yukata, Kagura turns into a younger version of himself wearing an NOL Academy uniform and carrying a shinai, Terumi turns into a babified version of his ghost form carrying a stick with a snake on its tip, and Kokonoe becomes her younger self as seen in an ending illustration from ''Phase Shift 4'', wearing the robes of the Kaka clan. When used on Amane himself, the victim!Amane becomes a younger, teenager Amane, posing and [[BishieSparkle sparkling]].[[/note]]
* GirlyRun: His running animation.
* GlassCannon: He shares last place in the HP-pool-size category with Carl. He can also take off ''huge'' chunks of HP, even on block. ''Especially'' on block.
* HairDecorations: Fitting in with his geisha-inspired looks, Amane wears golden [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanzashi hairpins.]]
* IdenticalStranger: Looks suspiciously like [[spoiler:a male version of]] the Imperator as seen in ''Bururaji W''.
* [[spoiler:{{Immortality}}: Sort of. Hinted.]]
* ImprobableWeaponUser: He'll {{whip|ItGood}} you with [[MorphWeapon his]] [[ClothingCombat sleeves]] and [[ThisIsADrill drill]] you with his... shawl.
* {{Kimono}}
** KimonoIsTraditional
* {{Narcissist}}: Keeping in line with the below VainSorceress qualities, leave him {{idle|Animation}} for too long and Amane will admiringly examine himself in a hand mirror.
--> '''Amane''': [[DistractedByMyOwnSexy "Damn I look good."]]
* NoodleIncident: 10 years ago, he mistook Bullet's mercenary squadron for a dance troupe and forced them to dance for three days straight. She's never forgiven him for that.
* {{Overheating}}: Part of the way Amane's drill moves balance out. Use them too much and you'll overheat your meter, causing it to drop all the way back down to one.
* ParasolOfPrettiness
* PurpleIsPowerful
* ScratchDamage: The purpose of his Drive is to inflict damage on block. With his Drive on Level 1 the attacks are only slightly more damaging than any other attack. On Level 2 you're definitely going to feel the sting of the drills, but there's no need for panic just yet... Well, unless you consider the fact that from Level 2 it's just a matter of time before Amane reaches '''[[OhCrap Level 3]]''' which drills straight through your defenses into your HP pool ForMassiveDamage. Seriously, you're better off ''getting hit'' by a Level 3 Spiral than actually blocking it.
* {{Shotacon}}: Has an interest in the "pretty, young vigilante" Carl.
** And with his Astral making people younger that can lead to some UnfortunateImplications.
* ThemeNaming: Surprisingly, his moveset is named after... ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' titles?
* ThisIsADrill: As if the name of Amane's Drive, "Spiral", didn't give it away.
* VainSorceress: Male example. [[spoiler:Hints say that he may be immortal and is trying to keep that state to create his greatest stage.]]
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]


[[caption-width-right:280:[[OhCrap Get ready to be devoured.]]]]

-->''You're in luck, because I'm going to show you...NONE CAN RIVAL MY STRENGTH!''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/HirokiYasumoto / [[Creator/DCDouglas D.C. Douglas]]

-> A feared member of Sector Seven nicknamed ''The Mad Dog'' who was locked away because of his violent personality, the cause of incidents where he attacked everything in sight - friend and foe alike. Azrael lives for fighting, and has an insatiable lust for power. Because his abilities are superhuman, he limits himself to make battles more entertaining. He has recently been released by his superiors and has a new objective: [[spoiler:Kill Kokonoe and Tager and take Ragna's Azure Grimiore. Of course, he doesn't care about his superiors' wishes, and only agreed just so he could fight strong opponents, like Ragna or the Six Heroes. It is revealed in his ending that the limiters he imposes on himself are the various tattoos across his body. They are actually a seal known as "Enchant Dragunov" that suppresses his great strength and allows him to control it better so as to not instantly kill his opponents.]]

-> His Drive is '''The Terror''', which lets him reveal weak points on the opponent. There are two different types of weak points - yellow and red, and depending on the color there will be different effects for the next Drive attack that hits the weak point. His Overdrive is '''Mind Colosseo''', which makes all of his Drives inflict weak points even when blocked.

-> His Astral, '''Patriot Apocalypse''', involves punching the opponent into a slab of ground, which he promptly tosses high into the sky. He then releases his limiters and as the opponent falls to the ground, he raises his fist to the sky, the resulting collision causing a massive volcanic eruption which completely disintegrates the slab of ground with the opponent on it. Azrael then exposes his bare back to the screen and laughs maniacally as the dust settles.

* AffablyEvil[=/=]FauxAffablyEvil: A strange mix of the two. For a blatant CardCarryingVillain, he's surprisingly polite to everyone he meets, maintains an impersonal, friendly tone with people even when he threatens to kill them, and is even a good sport in battle. It's only when his BerserkButton is pressed does the monster come out.
* TheAlcoholic: Can be seen chugging a bottle of beer in seconds in one of his match intros.
* AttackItsWeakpoint: His drive is pretty much this.
* AwesomeButImpractical: There is really no reason why Azrael would put his [[ClothingCombat his coat]] on his '''foot''' during one of his attacks other than RuleOfCool.
* AxCrazy BloodKnight: Views the battlefield as a feeding ground and enjoys the act of fighting people to the death.
--> ''Ah, the mayhem... Magnificent!''
* {{Badass}}: Nearly rivals Hakumen in sheer badassery. In his debut, almost everyone who encounters him doesn't want to fight him, and the ones that do find out exactly why he was sealed away in the first place. Notably, [[spoiler: he has not had a clean loss period and had to be sealed away again to be dealt with.]]
* BadassBack: The end of his Astral, which is a blatant homage to [[Franchise/StreetFighter Akuma]]. One of his winposes has him take off his jacket and turn his back to the screen, as well.
* BadassBaritone: Comes with being voiced by [[VideoGame/AsurasWrath Asura]] and [[Franchise/ResidentEvil Wesker]] in Japanese and English respectively.
* BadassBeard: Rocks a sweet goatee.
* BadassGay: Implied by Creator/YuuichiNakamura, Hazama's seiyuu, although Azrael's seiyuu Creator/HirokiYasumoto tried his best to deny.
* [[BadassLongcoat Badass Long]][[CoatCape coat Cape]]: Unlike most CoatCape examples, this one is held by a strap. It's also regularly removed so he can [[ClothingCombat smack you with it]].
* BarbarianLonghair
* BareFistedMonk
* BattleAura: Appears quite a lot, as seen on his Distortion Drives and one of his victory poses. He even ''weaponizes'' it in one of his attacks, where it acts as a minor Barrier Burst with damage attached, complete with Super Armor.
* BerserkButton: If you don't put up the fight he craves, he'll be disappointed. But if you put up a good fight and ''stop'' fighting, he'll be pissed. [[spoiler: Kagura manages to turn this against him to imprison him.]]
* TheBerserker: Word of advice: If you're working with this guy and he starts fighting, it's best to just hide because there's no guarentee he won't turn his fists on you.
* BigEater: When snared by Amane's Astral, his response?
-->'''Azrael:''' Where's my food?
* BlownAcrossTheRoom: A staple of his game mechanics. A good chunk of his movelist wall-splats the opponent, with one move in particular being capable of carrying the opponent from Azrael in the corner to the opponent in the other corner.
* BoisterousBruiser: He's practically an evil version of this. When his opponent is particularly strong, he gets REALLY excited, with loud [[LargeHam hammy]] [[LaughingMad laughs]] aplenty... and the sign that you ''really should run away''.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: When confronted by Bullet, he remarks that he has fought memebers of her squad before, but claims he doesn't remember those he "devoured".
* CardCarryingVillain: Much like Terumi, Azrael makes absolutely no pretense about who and what he is and even revels in the villainy he does.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: As far as the audience knows, he has no type of enhancements whatsoever, he's just ''really'' freaking strong.
* ClothingCombat: Uses his coat during certain attacks.
* DishingOutDirt: Though it's less controlling earth and more [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower manipulating the earth with shockwaves through punching it.]]
* TheDreaded: It's not much of a stretch to say that ''nearly every character in the game is afraid of him''. And the ones who aren't afraid or just don't know him find out the hard way why they should be afraid.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Azrael doesn't take a liking to people bullying others weaker than them, as shown in episode 4 of "Teach Me More, Ms. Litchi!" Where he makes the accusation of Litchi hurting Platinum.
* EvilLaugh[=/=]LaughingMad: Once he's done with his Astral and anytime he's in a fight.
* FashionableAsymmetry
* FlashStep: A very liberal use of these, not unlike [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Slayer]].
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: Debatable. While Azrael does have a personality, he's mostly defined by the threat he poses and is treated more like an unstoppable force of nature than an actual character.
* GutturalGrowler: When he gets excited during battle. One of the ''many'' signs that you should run away.
* HeavySleeper: It says a lot when his introduction has him sleeping in a chamber at absolute zero, and then waking up no worse for wear. In fact, some of his appearances just have him sleeping through some pretty ridiculous scenarios.
* HeroicBuild: Even more ripped than Bang or Kagura, which is only emphasized more by his tattoos.
* IAmAHumanitarian: Heavily, heavily, heavily implied. What with his constant references to his battles as feeding on his opponents or eating their flesh. It doesn't help that one of his monkiers he goes by (see below) is Cannibal.
* IHaveManyNames: The Mad Dog, Massacre King, The Genocider, The [=DeathBringer=], The King of Atrocity, Destroyer, Cannibal, Murderer. We can go all day with this guy.
* InvincibleVillain: Even moreso than Terumi and Relius combined. Story mode and his arcade mode has him steamrolling over nearly every member of the cast. And unlike the former two, he's never been defeated in battle. [[spoiler: It took sealing him away in the space between dimensions to finally put him down.]]
* TheJuggernaut: Probably the scariest thing about Azrael isn't his strength, fearsome as it is, but his ability to shrug pretty much ''everything'' thrown at him. In their fight in Chapter 13 of the "Chronophatasma" route of the third game, Kagura notes that despite their skills being relatively on par, Azrael has a hell of a lot more endurance. Even Hakumen notes that fleeing would be a more suitable option than trying to take him down.
* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: One of his intros has him stepping on an unconscious person before kicking them offscreen. [[NothingIsScarier Lord only knows what else he did to him]].
* LargeHam: The more excited he is during battle, the hammier he gets.
* LightningBruiser: Despite his extremely heavy build and MegatonPunch spam, he is extremely fast and flies around just [[BlownAcrossTheRoom as much as his opponent]].
* ManlyGay: He gives off this vibe, or so Creator/YuuichiNakamura says. Furthermore, a good portion of ''[=BlazBlue=] Radio Wide''[='s=] "Riot" special for ''Chronophantasma'' consisted of most of the other seiyuu assembled (mainly the aforementioned Nakamura, as well as Creator/AoiYuuki) teasing Yasumoto about this, [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday much to his dismay and disapproval.]] (Although Yasumoto himself ''did'' indulge in some jokes with Nakamura from time to time...)
* MegatonPunch: His Astral and half of his movelist. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-YcZCdlFfg The animated version is even more awesome.]]
* MrFanservice: He's picking some stuff from Bang, evidently.
* MysteriousPast: There is not one scrap of backstory for Azrael. Beyond his participation in the Ikaruga Civil War, we have no information on how Azrael got to his current [[NighInvulnerability nigh-invulnerable]] status.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: His name is taken from '''[[NamesToRunAwayFrom/DemonsOrAngels The Angel of Death]]'''.
** Not only that, his Drive is also called The Terror.
** Other names he goes by are [[OmnicidalManiac Genocider]], [[AxCrazy The Mad Dog]], and King of Atrocity, in case you didn't get the hint that you do NOT mess with this guy.
** Thirdly, the name of his Astral Heat? Patriot Apocalypse, yeah all pretty strong indicators to really run away from this guy.
** Fourth, his theme song is called "The Tyrant," and is another moniker of his. They ''really'' want you to know that you should '''never''' encounter or even look at this man in your lifetime.
* NighInvulnerability: If it's not a trap set up by Kokonoe, then absolutely nothing that's been thrown at Azrael has been shown to hurt or impede him in the slightest. He's even slept inside a near absolute zero prison and woke up no worse for wear apart from oversleeping.
** This gets PlayedForLaughs in the Gag Reels he appears in where he pretty much sleeps through everything throw at him; extreme heat, cold, meat, kittens, you name it. [[spoiler: except digestion by Arakune however]]
* NoSell: Growler Field does this to projectiles, with each hit absorbed giving him a Phalanx Cannon charge(caps at three but it can absorb projectiles as long as it is held). this actually makes him incredibly viable against [[spoiler:Take-Makizuchi and Izanami]] as it will negate pretty much three-quarters of its moveset including [[spoiler:[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTZx50TlUBU#t=118 Take-Mikazuchi's laser beam Distortion Drive]].]]
* ObviouslyEvil: Just look at all the evil tropes on his entry. Hell, just look at all the things under NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast alone. The game is telling, nay, practically '''''begging''''' you to stay as far away from him as possible. Don't even spare a glance at him.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Oh yes. Need proof? Look at his Astral--it completely turns the surrounding area into a wasteland!
* PowerLimiter: "Enchant Dragunov" serves this purpose, and Azrael only uses the Level 1 setting to keep from killing his opponents too quickly - mostly to draw out his thirst for battle, per his BloodKnight nature. [[spoiler:He unleashes Level 2 after facing off against Ragna in Arcade Mode, daring him to follow suit with his Azure Grimoire. Ragna obliges.]]
* PowerTattoo: [[spoiler:The tattoos all over his body are revealed to be said limiters, and he removes them during his Astral as well as his ending, where he fights Ragna after he unleashes his Azure Grimoire.]]
* PsychoForHire: Psycho is the operative word.
* RatedMForManly: Compared with the other newcomers, at least to Western players. In Japan, on the other hand...
* RestrainingBolt: Sector 7 made sure to take precautions in releasing him. They placed an Ars Magus that prevented him from attacking anyone who doesn't have a "will to fight" aside from Tager and Kokonoe. [[spoiler: This is ultimately his undoing as it is exploited by Kagura in their fight at the Colosseum when he notices that Azrael didn't continue to attack him when he momentarily lost consciousness. Kagura proceeds to "give up" which prevented Azrael from fighting any further and gave Kokonoe the chance to seal him away again.]]
* {{Revenge}}: Against Kokonoe and Tager for imprisoning him.
* SarcasmMode: This line after "accidently" breaking a soilder's arm in a friendly gesture when released.
-->'''Azrael:''' Oops. My apologies. That was supposed to be a gentle pat on the back.
* SealedEvilInACan[=/=]TailorMadePrison: Prior to the game, he was sealed by Kokonoe in "The Dog House", a special ice prison so cold that atoms cannot move. He gets out of the can thanks to Sector Seven, [[spoiler: but he gets sealed in another prison by Kagura and Kokonoe. This time in the space between dimensions.]]
* SheatheYourSword: [[spoiler: Sector Seven placed a second seal on Azrael prior to releasing him: If one does not have the will to fight Azrael, he can't actually attack them, at least directly (Kokonoe and Tager are the only exceptions to this). After a heated fight, Kagura defeats Azrael by ceasing his own offense, stalling the Mad Dog out enough for Kokonoe to imprison him again.]]
* SickeningCrunch: Azrael will do this to anyone he nails twice with his Drive. Even the ones who have no bones to break (Arakune, Hakumen).
* SoftSpokenSadist: Most of the time his voice is barely raised above a polite impersonal tone even when he threatens someone's life.
* SuperStrength
* TheSocialDarwinist: With his constant espousing of how only the fittest can survive, to his mindset of being a predator looking for adequate prey to consume while believing weak prey deserve only death, he's most definitely this.
* ThemeNaming: All of Azrael's specials are named for various missile models. (Gustaf, Phalanx, Hornet, Scud...)
* TokenEvilTeammate: A berserker who may attack friend or foe without provocation, yet he is sent out to aid Sector Seven. In fact, in his Arcade Mode, when he encounters Tager, the latter [[WithFriendsLikeThese opts to "put him back in prison."]] [[spoiler: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] when it turns out that Sector Seven has turned on Kokonoe and has sent him in to take her and Tager out of the picture, which he is more than happy to do considering that she was the one that put him away in the first place.]]
** If current translations are correct, [[spoiler:one of the crimes Azrael was imprisoned for was genocide]].
* TooKinkyToTorture: When subjected to Relius' Astral, his final quote is along the lines of "That all you have...?" Compared to everyone else...
** He continues laughing off practically everything thrown at him in Bang's gag reel, all the way up to '''Arakune'''. [[spoiler:This ultimately gets him killed by digestion.]]
* TooPowerfulToLive: By his own admission, he's barely using an eighth of his true power; even then, he easily either decimates strong characters like Valkenhayn or forces incredibly powerful characters like Hakumen to flee. Were it not for [[spoiler:Kokonoe trapping him into the space between dimensions,]] there wouldn't be much of a plot to salvage after he's had his "fill".
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Similarly to Terumi, much of the enjoyment of playing Azrael is seeing him send characters flying through the air like ragdolls.
* VillainHasAPoint: It's really difficult to disagree with Azrael when he calls out Sector Seven's motives for releasing him.
-->'''Azrael:''' So, let me get this straight: First you guys get Kokonoe to capture me and put me on ice, and now you're releasing me so I can [[spoiler:kill her?]] That's the joke of the century right there. You're a bunch of selfish assholes by any standard.
* WalkingShirtlessScene
* WorldsStrongestMan: In terms of raw physical strength, he's easily the strongest member in the entire cast, especially since his powers aren't the result of magic or technology. To put it simply: even ''Hakumen'' found fleeing to be a preferable alternative than continuing his battle with Azrael.
* WorthyOpponent: Hopes to find one out all of the crazy powerful individuals gathering in Ikaruga, which range from the Six Heroes, the Grim Reaper, and the Black Knight. [[spoiler: When the latter two don't give him the fight that he sought, he wasn't happy to say the least.]] If he's selected as a voice announcer option, whenever any of the Six Heroes(barring Platinum), Ragna, or Kagura are selected, his tone ranges from amused to loud and excited.
* WouldHitAGirl[=/=]WouldHurtAChild: Put simply, there's no one he won't beat up. Gender or age, it's all fair game to him. If you can put up a fight, you've earned a beatdown. And when sufficently enraged, this will even extend to those who can't fight. [[spoiler: When Ragna refuses to use his Azure Grimore, he tried to kill Celica in an attempt to enrage him into using it. And had Rachel not thrown Gii in his path, he would've succeeded.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
* YourMindMakesItReal: The implications of his Overdrive, Mind Colosseo, is that the threat of being hit by this guy alone is enough to put a weak point on the opponent by sheer intimidation factor.


[[caption-width-right:280:[[RedBaron Singular,]] [[IThoughtItMeant not]] [[BoobsOfSteel plural.]]]]

-->''Stand in my way... I'll break your back.''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Toa Yukinari / Creator/ErinFitzgerald

->Bullet is a member of a mercenary group that ended up massacred in a certain incident involving Sector Seven. Seeking answers, Bullet now has a bone to pick with Kokonoe.

->Her Drive, '''Lockon''', shows a target reticule on the opponent and allows her to enter a state called "Heat-Up Mode." Her Overdrive is '''Heat the Beat''', which places her in a constant state of Heat-Up.

->Her Astral, '''Hard Kill Bringer''', involves her grabbing the opponent and repeatedly slugging them with fire-enhanced punches. She then slams the opponent to the ground and mounts them before revealing a pile bunker in her gauntlets and firing a huge blast of flames at point blank range, torching the opponent and cratering the ground, similar to Tager's Astral.
* BadassNormal: She doesn't possess a Nox Nyctores, is not a Beastkin, and seemingly has no magical abilities, yet can still kick ass with the best of them with nothing but her gauntlets and her mercenary skill.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: Her gauntlets are an Ars Armagus.
* BareYourMidriff
* BattleAura: A blurring, red one in Heat-Up.
* BattleStrip: {{Inverted|Trope}}. She takes off her shirt after the match is over (as one of her victory poses).
* BerserkButton: If you know where Kokonoe is you have three options: Tell her what you know, run away, or get roasted.
** She also has issues with Tsubaki due to Zero Squadron's involvement in the ill-fated mission.
** Relius Clover is on her list as well due to his hand in setting up the mission and his association with Kokonoe.
** Also, due to a NoodleIncident involving Amane (See below), his very existence is one for her.
* BoobsOfSteel: Another contender, since she's very similar to Makoto.
** Point in case, her chest is the ''first'' thing Tochimichi Mori decides to point out in an interview with Famitsu.
--> '''Interviewer''': "Okay, lastly, what can you say about Bullet?" \\
'''Mori''': "Well, [[BuxomIsBetter she's quite big-breasted, isn't she?]]" (''[[LampshadeHanging laughs]]'')
* CrosshairAware: The visual representation of her Drive hitting the opponent.
* TheComicallySerious: This is even PlayedForLaughs in Story Mode. Bang in an attempt to get her to loosen up, tries his best to make her laugh, even resorting to drawing a face on his chest and doing a bellydance. She does chuckle at the display... [[RightForTheWrongReasons only to reveal that she was laughing at how hard he was trying.]]
** This gets taken to its logical extremes in her Gag Reel.
* DarkSkinnedBlonde
* DefrostingIceQueen: Slightly towards Bang.
* DisproportionateRetribution: In both Story Mode and her arcade mode, she attempts to ''kill'' Amane. The reason? He mistook her mercenary group for a dance troupe and forced them to dance for three days straight. Considering that this all happened ''10 years ago'', she's apparently never forgiven him for that.
* DontYouDarePityMe: Her response to Ragna saving her from Azrael.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Tao calls her "Butt Lady." She reacts poorly.
** She takes Ragna's nickname of "Butt Floss" even worse.
* FantasticRacism[=/=]InsaneTrollLogic: Her Arcade mode plays with the two tropes. As her winquote against Makoto shows, she doesn't seem to harbor any real racistic tendencies towards beastkin, unlike Hazama. But as her fight with Valkenhyen shows, if you happen to be a beastkin, she'll antagonize you because since she's looking for Kokonoe, who is part beastkin herself, then that means you know where she is. [[SarcasmMode Makes sense, I guess.]]
* FingerlessGloves
* FishOutOfWater: When she's not fighting. Leading her to apply battle knowledge to all things... [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 just like the Soldier.]]
* FlungClothing: One of her win poses involves releasing her jacket and has her topless (except with a bra), in the same vein as [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear I-No]].
* ForgottenFriendNewFoe: [[spoiler: For Tager, it seems. Specifically, it's heavily implied that she and Tager were in the same mercenary unit, and the "incident" that left him in his current condition is the same one she seeking answers for. Since most of Tager's memories are [[LaserGuidedAmnesia sealed/erased]] and he's also bound to Kokonoe's will...]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has one across the bridge of her nose.
* HandBlast: Thanks to her gauntlets.
* HotBlooded: What else would you expect from an Overdrive called "Heat the Beat"?
* HypocriticalHumor: Her line after defeating Makoto in her arcade run. This coming from someone who wears hotpants.
-->'''Bullet''': Doesn't it bother you that people can see... ''everything?''
** And then there's this line from her Gag Reel, again coming from someone wearing hotpants. Apparently no one's ever told her the saying "Practice what you preach". It's even lampshaded by Noel and Tsubaki.
-->'''Bullet''': For the record, I ''hate'' skirts...and this open area around my chest. What the hell is that? I can't be caught wearing this!
-->'''Tsubaki''': Uhh, I think your own clothes were just as extreme...
-->'''Noel''': Exactly! For someone who wears those extreme low-rise pants so well day-to-day, this should be nothing!
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's abrasive, antisoical, ill-tempered, and tends to hold grudges, but she's ''far'' from a villain. Sadly, only Bang gets to see the "Heart of Gold" part.
* MsFanservice: Inevitable, considering her breast size outstrips that of the already well-endowed Makoto, compounded with the fact that she walks around wearing [[MemeticMutation hotpants]]...
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Her Astral, which involves picking the enemy up and slugging them repeatedly, then slamming them into the ground and hitting them so hard they crater the planet.
* NoSocialSkills: Due to being raised by male mercenaries, she doesn't know much outside of fighting. This is even lampshaded by Bang when her methods of getting information out of someone results in her nearly killing the person.
--> '''Bullet''': What? I can't do that? That's how I always get information.
--> (''Beat'')
--> '''Bang''': How are you ''not'' already in prison?
--> '''Bullet''': Shut up.
* NotSoDifferent: With Bang in Story Mode, once the two get to know each other. Both have no magical abilities to speak of, both are skilled warriors driven by the deaths of their mentors, and both have scars from previous fights.
* OneOfTheBoys: She was raised by male mercenaries.
* PlayingWithFire
* {{Power Fist}}s
* RaisedByDudes
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Her motivation. She lost her mercenary squad to an ill-fated mission to Naobi ([[spoiler:the same mission that caused Tager to lose his memory]]) and she holds several parties responsible. Kokonoe and Relius being her main target.
* SacrificedBasicSkillForAwesomeTraining: Due to being RaisedByDudes and growing up on the battlefield, she doesn't really know much outside of fighting.
* StatuesqueStunner: She's almost 5'9" [[labelnote:*]]a good 175cm to be exact[[/labelnote]] and just... look at her design.
* SuperMode: Heat-Up Mode.
* {{Tomboy}}
* [[WhoWearsShortShorts Who Wears Hotpants?]]: Even when fashionably ripped, they look uncomfortably tight.
* WouldHurtAChild: Her Arcade mode puts an interesting take on this. If pitted against Carl or Platinum, she'll fight them without hesitation, but as her winquotes against them show, she's actually adverse to the idea of hurting children. Justified considering her backstory.
-->'''Bullet''': {''After defeating Carl'') I can't bear to see children on the battlefield. Go home before this gets out of hand.
-->'''Bullet''': {''After defeating Platnium'') A battlefield is no place for a child. Surely you have someone important to you... Go to their side. It will be for the best.


[[caption-width-right:280:The manifestation of Armagus Izayoi. [[AntiVillain Still morally confused.]]]]

-->''The end has come. Zero-Type Izayoi, please give me strength. Say your prayers, for the arrows of calamity shall rain from the heavens! I serve the hand of justice!''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/AsamiImai / Creator/JulieAnnTaylor

-> This is the true form of Tsubaki Yayoi's Armagus, the Sealed Weapon: Izayoi.

-> Through the Imperator's mind control spell, Tsubaki is forced into unleashing the full powers of Izayoi in order to accomplish her idol's goal of upholding the law of the NOL. Her profile, however, indicates that she will be freed from the effects of Mind Eater, and will seek the meaning of "true justice."

-> Her Drive, '''Scarlet Justice''', lets her switch between her normal mode and '''[[JetPack Gain Art Mode]]''', used for offensive attacks, much like Aigis in ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena''. Her Overdrive is '''Freedom Justice''', which continually builds up the Zero Weave gauge.

-> Her Astral, '''Judge of Destiny''', is very similar to her old one, but with a new animation: she transforms into a valkyrie with a shield and lance, as well as a different outfit than her original Astral. She then combines the shield and lance into a giant energy sword with angelic wings and feathers, before sending it rocketing towards her foe, impaling and disintegrating them.
* BattleBallgown: Looks pretty similar to [[FateStayNight Saber's]], which is fitting considering she has her palette as an option.
* {{BFS}}: Of the LaserBlade kind, no less.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Red hair and eyes.
* ChekhovsGun: A single line in Tager's Story Mode for ''Continuum Shift'' revealed that [[spoiler:Izayoi was a prototype for the Murakumo Units.]] And look at what that line has become...
** Ragna says the same thing to her in his Arcade Mode and rather bluntly states she can't beat him with it. Considering he's dealt with [[spoiler:Nu-13 and Mu-12]], everyone knows that he's not lying either.
* DetachedSleeves
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: [[spoiler:Izayoi's primary function is to ''kill Observers''. It's the only weapon explicitly stated to be capable of doing so (Hakumen's Okami is only implied). Doesn't work so well on those, like Jin and Hakumen, who possess the Power of Order; she attempted to use Immortal Breaker on Jin, and he willingly tanked it. Rachel has asked, if things go FromBadToWorse, that Tsubaki be the one to put her out of her misery.]]
* EvilRedhead[=/=]RedHeadedHeroine: Both Pre and Post-HeelFaceTurn.
* FinalBoss: In Arcade Mode for certain characters. Characters known to fight Izayoi include Jin, Rachel, and Makoto.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: [[spoiler: In her Arcade Mode, once freed from the Imperator's control, Tsubaki heads off to find the true meaning of her ideals. While doing so, she discards all personal biases regarding her judgments for those she deems wicked. While remaining impartial, this translates to her means for achieving true justice being rather... harsh, to say the least. It takes a battle with the man she worships and bases her ideals on (Hakumen) for her to realize that she wants to fight for her TrueCompanions (Noel and Makoto).]] This isn't really present in the main story, where she makes a true HeelFaceTurn.
* LargeHam: Two times better than when she was still Tsubaki.
--> '''Izayoi''': "My right hand is for the blade of judgment... My left hand is for the celestial being of beginning! Sacrifice is justice... I am the jury! Zero-Weave... execute!"
* LightIsGood[=/=]LightIsNotGood: When she first appears as the Imperator's thrall, its the latter. After her HeelFaceTurn, its the former.
* OneWingedAngel[=/=]SuperMode: For Tsubaki.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Mixed with SupernaturalGoldEyes. [[spoiler: After regaining control of herself and powering down, they go back to their natural blue.]]
* SuperPrototype: [[spoiler:Of the Murakumo series. She's Number Zero to be precise.]]
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: When Tsubaki is overwhelmed by [[spoiler: Makoto, Jin, and Noel]], she calls upon the Izayoi's power to aid her...[[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor and she got it.]]
* TeleportSpam: She'd make [[DevilMayCry Vergil]] proud.
* ThemeNaming: All of her attacks are references to machines or concepts from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Gundam SEED]]'', ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny SEED Destiny]]'', and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 00]]''.
* TokenHuman: To the Murakumo series, which are ArtificialHumans compared to Izayoi being human.
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: The trailer for Nu and Mu shows off a scene of Izayoi fighting Noel, and they chat casually as though they are still best friends. [[labelnote:*]]They both say to each other "Honki desu yo!", [[ThisMeansWar meaning that they're reaffirming that this next fight is serious]].[[/labelnote]] That, and her profile gives away the fact that she will eventually be freed from the Imperator's control and her Arcade story is apparently her asking people like Hakumen what she should do and eventually vowing to protect the ones she loves.
* TouchedByVorlons
* UnexpectedCharacter: She first appeared in the debut trailer of Chrono Phantasma in a split second shot, a lot of people assumed it was simply a relative of Tsubaki and not the manifestation of her weapon itself.

!!Introduced in Console Version

[[folder:Kagura Mutsuki]]
[[caption-width-right:280: [[ChivalrousPervert Please, just one grope!]]]]

--> "I don't have time to entertain men."

-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/KeijiFujiwara / Creator/GrantGeorge

-> The current head of the Mutsuki family, the highest-ranked of the Duodecim, but also being more empathic towards the people rather than the government. [[GenderBlenderName Despite the feminine name, Kagura is a man.]] He is currently planning a coup of the NOL after his family had a falling-out with them.

-> [[spoiler:He is a disciple of Lord Tenjou Amanohokosaka (Bang's master), and entrusted to care for his young son Homura. Kagura plans that once his coup succeeds, he'll be able install Homura as the new Imperator of NOL.]]

-> He is a combination between [[ChargedAttack a charge character]] and [[StanceSystem a stance character]] who can switch styles using his Drive, called '''Black Gale'''. His Overdrive, '''Vehemence Edge''', allows him to switch between stances quicker. So quick, in fact, that it becomes possible to chain together several attacks from each stance, similar to Noel's Drive.

-> His Astral, '''Black Dragon's Sky-Rending Blade''', involves swinging his Zweihander in an upwards motion. If it connects, the opponent is engulfed by dark energy as Kagura lifts his sword up and slams it into them while imbued in the same dark energy, obliterating the opponent completely in the same manner as Ragna's Astral.
* AnimalMotifs: Dragons. Big, scary, shadowy black dragons.
* AnimeHair: Reminiscent of [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Sasuke Uchiha]]'s.
* AscendedExtra: The Mutsuki house was first mentioned in an episode of ''Teach Me, Miss Litchi Reloaded'', and expanded upon in Makoto's ''CS'' Story, ''Slight Hope'' where Makoto mentioned their planned coup (although their name was [[SpellMyNameWithAnS misspelled as "Mutsugi"]]). Later in various Arcade runs in ''CP'', Kagura's name is mentioned a few times. Then he becomes a console exclusive character.
* {{Badass}}: To put it into perspective, it was said that if he took Jin's place on the battlefield in the Ikaruga War, ''he'' would be known as the "Hero of Ikaruga" and his skills are said to be par with the likes of [[BloodKnight Azrael]]
** AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: He's also the head of the highest ranking family in the Duodecim.
** BadassBiker: His Unlimited version has a move where he runs over his opponent with a motorcycle. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dX_7NW-i-iM It's as awesome as it sounds.]]
** BadassCape: Seems to be a recurring thing among the Duodecim.
** ColonelBadass: He has the fourth highest rank in the NOL.
* BerserkButton: He's normally pretty laid-back and easy going, but when [[spoiler: Arakune attempts to consume Noel while she was sleeping,]] he ''flips'', declaring that he's going to kill him in the angriest tone we've heard. Even Ragna was pretty overwhelmed by such a reaction.
** Ironically despite being a total pervert and flirt, he does not like seeing woman physically abused or hurt. He attacked Ragna when it looked like he was hurting Noel(In truth he was just trying to talk to her) and he nearly lept down to fight Azreal before he was suppose to when he saw him wailing on Bullet.
* {{BFS}}: His weapon of choice is a rectangular sword very similar to the [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Fireseal]].
** OneHandedZweihander
* BigBrotherMentor: ''Remix Heart'' shows Kagura to be this to his relative Taro Zazagae, even going as far as to tease Taro over an AccidentalKiss with Mai and entrust Jin's safety and well-being to him. In turn, [[TheNicknamer Taro]] refers to Kagura as "Big Bro", but is also quick to imply him as a Casanova-type, snidely insinuating that Kagura dial back in his interest in the ladies a notch or two.
** He's also this to most of the cast in Chrono Phantasma, particularly Ragna, who he gives advice on what and how he should use his Azure Grimoire instead of just throwing its power around.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Despite his perverted tendencies, he's every bit as competent as you'd expect the head of the top family in the Duodecim to be. [[spoiler:He successfully comes up with a plan to lure out both Azrael and Tsubaki, and is able to hold his own in a fight with the former before Kokonoe intervened.]]
* CarFu: Unlimited Kagura has a Distortion Drive involving ramming the opponent into the opposite wall with a motorcycle [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYDks8OKL4o but Carl and Relius]] manage to make it a InfinityPlusOneSword-type Distortion.
* CastingAShadow: His attacks are imbued with a shadowy element, though this sometimes crosses over with PlayingWithFire and ShockAndAwe, as seen by his ''Ryuuha Gokuenjin'' Distortion Drive and his Astral.
* ChivalrousPervert[=/=]HandsomeLech: His brief interaction with Taro in ''Remix Heart'' promptly establishes Kagura as a ladies' man; with no more than ''four'' pages of screentime in Chapter 12, he calls Mai cute and [[MaleGaze points out]] [[BuxomIsBetter her bustline]] before stating he should ask her out for some tea, is told by Taro that he can't resist girls (to which Kagura groans at Taro's good memory and attempts to curb his habits), then is all but outright described as a potential sex offender if left unchecked, and finally, upon declaring that he's [[UnusualEuphemism going to take a good look around Torifune]], shows his admiration of the female form by appreciating the beauty and [[BuxomIsBetter ample curves]] of one [[HotTeacher Estella "Emma" McKenzie]]. An alarmed Taro immediately voices his disapproval of that last point, deeming it a suicide mission in the making.
** During most match intros, Kagura may toss a woman into the air like Makoto tosses her coat. After such a match, the girl drops down into his arms and hugs him. If he loses, said woman will fall top of him angry and fuming. He even has multiple girls he may toss from two different types of Chinese girls to [[InterspeciesRomance a fox beastkin]].
** Speaking of Makoto, his match intro with her has him parried for trying to cop a feel. Winning such a match has him moving in for the "kill."
** Kagura's bio lists his two likes as alcohol and women.
** That said, he will ''not'' hit on [[OlderThanTheyLook Kokonoe, Rachel]] or [[SingleTargetSexuality Tsubaki]]. He also shows some reservation about interacting with [[TokenMiniMoe Platinum]] and [[RobotGirl Nirvana]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWX5ncUvc7o This trope taken to its logical conclusion.]]
* CrosshairAware: When surveying the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bust/waist/hip_measurements BWH measurements]] of the various ladies he encounters, Kagura's keen eyes operate as such.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Let's see, dark features, a flowing black cloak and large black & red zweihander, and dark-based attacks mixed with either fire or lightning, and being the so-called "Black Knight", he's the current head of the Mutsuki family, the highest ranked of the Duodecim families, and also the only member of the N.O.L who isn't a rigid templar for the Imperator's words or a {{Jerkass}} UpperClassTwit. He's actually a cool, affable guy who actually cares about the people, and to this end is plotting a coup to remove the current Imperator and install [[spoiler:Lord Tenjo's young son Homura]] into power. The only problem is [[HandsomeLech he's a bit of a skirt-chaser]].
* DifficultButAwesome: Despite his playstyle being a combination between two of the hardest types of characters in fighting games, [[WordOfGod Mori]] expects that he will be an easy character to be pick up.
** In the vein of [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Guile]], he only possesses ''two'' specials in his default stance, [[EnergyBall a projectile]] and [[{{Shoryuken}} an anti-air]]. The rest are various modified normal attacks that change depending on the stance he's in.
* EarlyBirdCameo: His first real appearance was in a chapter of ''Remix Heart'', months before his official debut in the console version of ''Chronophantasma''.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: The player's first encounter with Kagura in the ''Chronophantasma'' story involves a woman running out of his office, which Noel points out reeks of alcohol. Not long after, he tries to hit on Noel and Makoto, much to the latter's ire. His "commander" role only starts to show after Kokonoe arrives on the scene.
* GenderBlenderName: "Kagura" is a woman's name.
* HandwrapsOfAwesome: His "round winpose" has him rewrapping his wrists. [[FridgeBrilliance Considering his choice of weapon, wearing them makes perfect sense.]]
* HeroicBuild: Giving Bang's "manly chest" a run for its money with his ''mancleavage''.
* TheJailBaitWait: His commentary with Platinum.
--> ''"Yeah, you're just a little too... young... for me. In more ways than one. Come see me in another 10 years."''
* MadeOfIron: Notably, he tanks [[SuperStrength Azrael's]] [[MemeticMutation Falcon Punch]] with ease.
* OddlyShapedSword: His sword looks like a mix of a cricket bat, a gravestone and [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear the Fireseal.]]
* PurpleEyes
* PurpleIsPowerful: Being the current head of the Mutsuki family, the highest ranked of the Duodecim families.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Biggest {{Badass}} of NOL who cares more about the people than the government. ''This is a good thing''.
* RedBaron: The "BlackKnight." Contrary to the title, he's not clad in black armor, but he does have a lot of black motif in his clothes.
* ReverseGrip
* {{Robo|sexual}}-Curious: One of the girls he can [[MaleGaze scan]] is [[RobotGirl Nirvana]]. He asks himself if such an action is legal.
* SecretCharacter: Like Mu in the previous game, Kagura is hidden from the start, but unlockable by finishing the True Story. You can however just ignore that and buy him for a few dollars as DLC.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: While Ragna is still the main character of the series, Kagura takes up a good portion of Chronophantasma's story. A good portion of the Chronophantasma and Sector Seven storyline deal with him and his [[spoiler:coup against the Imperator.]]
** Kagura himself even lampshades this in his first encounter with Ragna, calling himself the protagonist when he "saves" Noel from Ragna when the latter was getting a little rough with her.(He was asking her for a favor, but was kind of a bad mood) The creators themselves have even caught onto this and have added a scenario where Kagura and Ragna have a volleyball match for the tile of the protagonist in the Vita port of Chronophantasma.
* StabTheSky: His Astral. Insert [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Blasting Zone]]/[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Shining Finger Sword]] (or would that be [[CastingAShadow Darkness]] Finger Sword?) jokes here.
* StanceSystem: Integral to his playstyle, Kagura has ''lots'' of them.
* TheStarscream: Ever since ''CS'', Kagura's been voicing opposition to NOL and is planning a coup. Unknown whether it's for good or for bad. [[spoiler:Considering recent events it is starting to be completely benevolent, as he's trying to install the heir of the previous NOL Imperator to his rightful place.]]
* ThemeNaming: His moveset has techniques predominantly named after dragons.
* [[JustForPun Three]] [[TooManyBelts Many Belts]]
* TokenGoodTeammate: Probably the only Duodecim member that's not a rigid [[KnightTemplar templar]] for the Imperator's words or a [[{{Jerkass}} jackass]]. He's shown conversing casually with Noel and Makoto after the two betrayed NOL and gave tips to Bullet about entering Ikaruga and is described to be "more empathic to the people than the government." This is coming from the biggest badass of Duodecim families.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: On the receiving end in match intros with Amane Nishiki.
--> '''Kagura''': "Not another dude..."
* XMeetsY: His playstyle, with a forward projectile and a rising strike on quick charges, the ability to eliminate charges with his Overdrive, and his constant stance switching, makes Kagura a combination of Ash Crimson from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' and Siegfried from ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soulcalibur]]''.

[[caption-width-right:280:[[Franchise/MetalGear Kept you waiting, huh?]]]]

-->''Ars Magus? Hmph. Science is TRUE power!''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Chie Matsura / Creator/JulieAnnTaylor

-> Tager's and formerly Litchi's superior. She's one of the top scientists at Sector Seven who sends Tager to retrieve Hakumen.

-> She's Jubei and Nine's daughter, but for some reason she doesn't get along very well with Jubei. Despite her seemingly constant bitchy nature, she tends to act very [[MamaBear motherly]] towards her creations, and she sometimes goes a little... over-the-top with the upgrades she does to them if she's in a good mood, which is somewhat rare. She wants revenge on Terumi for what he did to her family.

-> On September 11, 2013, Famitsu confirmed that Kokonoe, at long last, will finally become playable in the series proper as a DLC character. She fights using a wrench and hammer as her main weapons, but also uses an assortment of scientific tools such as freeze guns as well as her latent magic abilities. She is the first character in the game to have not one, but ''two'' Drives, activated in sequence. The first, '''Graviton''', places a graviton field generator on the battlefield. The second, '''Activate''', as its name implies, activates the generator. Her Overdrive is '''Graviton Rage''', which reduces the amount of Graviton gauge consumed from her drive attacks. Like several other characters, her Drive uses up energy from a special gauge above her super meter.

-> Her Astral, '''Final Apocalypse: Ultimate Impact''', has her grab the opponent and perform [[RapidFireFisticuffs a flurry of martial arts moves]], sending them flying into a summoning device which allows Kokonoe to bring down [[ColonyDrop a giant, flaming meteor]] [[DeathFromAbove from the sky to crush them]]. The entire area is destroyed, having become a field of cracked earth and boiling lava similar to the result of Azrael's Astral, while Kokonoe stands [[BadassArmFold with her arms crossed]] and [[DramaticWind her coat blowing in the wind]].

* ActingForTwo: Julie Ann Taylor voices Kokonoe and Tsubaki (and, as of ''Chronophantasma'', Izayoi) in the English dub.
* ACupAngst: As revealed in Noel's ''Help Me! Prof. Kokonoe!'' short, Kokonoe doesn't exactly react well to being pointed out as flat-chested.
-->'''Noel:''' Whenever I'm around Tsubaki or Makoto, or especially Miss Litchi, I always feel like I'm... the odd one out...\\
'''Kokonoe:''' ... What?\\
''(an arrow pops up, pointing at Kokonoe's chest)''\\
'''Noel:''' But when I'm with you, I feel like I belong!... It's like we're comrades-in-arms or something... It's... um... I feel like we share a special bond...\\
'''Kokonoe:''' GET OUT OF HERE! ''(headbutts Noel off-stage)''
** Makoto's ''Help Me!'' session trips this again. You don't need to understand Japanese to figure that Kokonoe's throwing a tantrum over her breast size.
* AdjustingYourGlasses: By the rims, all the while striking a BadassArmFold pose.
* AllPowerfulBystander: Nowhere near to the extent that Rachel is, however.
** [[spoiler:Or maybe so. Relius hints that she may even be just as powerful as Nine in terms of combat prowess, but she simply prefers to sit back and let Tager do all the fighting. ''Extend''[='s=] [=EX2=] story mode reveals she did in fact inherit her mother's powers, and was forced to use them to seal away a monster similar to the Black Beast when Relius forced her hand.]]
** Completely averted as of ''Chronophantasma'', since she will become a playable character. Naturally, Ragna and Rachel find the need to lampshade how long Kokonoe's been sitting on the sidelines, Ragna asking if she can even fight and Rachel snarking about how Kokonoe finally came outside to play. [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall Ouch, guys.]]
--> '''Rachel:''' "Oh! The little shut-in girl comes to play outside? Should I expect a meteor to fall?"
** {{Irony}}: Then her Astral DOES make a meteor fall.
* AscendedExtra: And ''about frickin' time too!'' In a subversion, however, Kokonoe has been very integral to the story despite her "unplayable" status. It's just that it took about two sequels and many "iterations" for her to become playable on top of being integral to the story.
* TheAtoner: She's made a lot of mistakes, and if nothing else, she intends to do right by their many victims.
* {{Badass}}: Especially shown in her Arcade Mode where she manages to [[spoiler: ''beat [[InvincibleVillain Terumi]] in a fight!'']] Note that this was done with no magic powers or no Nox Nyctores. She did it with nothing but her gadgets and smarts.
** BadassBookworm: She ''is'' a scientist after all.
** [[BadassLongcoat Badass Labcoat]]: Which resembles the garb of the Kaka clan, complete with HandHidingSleeves.
* BatterUp: Her Crush Trigger is a ''rocket-powered baseball bat.''
* BareYourMidriff: So much that you can see her thong.
* BerserkButton: She's got several, but a particularly big one seems to be Jubei. Tager notes that he mentioned him once, and Kokonoe was in a bad mood for a week.
** Likewise, she was irate when she found that [[spoiler:Relius had her evoke a larval ''Black Beast'' and sacrifice several of her own colleagues just so he could make a soul for Ignis]], and took matters into her own hands despite extreme fatigue.
--> "Don't... underestimate me... ''human''."
* {{BFG}}: Pulls out a cannon for one of her air normals.
* BigEater: Another common trait she shares with Tao...
** One of her win poses sees Kokonoe pulling out a bag of chips, like in her ''Help Me, Professor Kokonoe!'' segments, and munching away.
* BrilliantButLazy: She's a gifted scientist [[spoiler: and has some skill in magic that she inherited from her mother.]] but prefers to sit on the sidelines and play MissionControl, leaving the field work to her subordinates like Tager. This trope even extends into gameplay. One of her battle intros has her playing on a handheld video game and one of her win poses has her pulling out a scooter and riding away while nonchalantly listening.
* CatGirl
* CatsAreMean: She acts this way towards Hazama in his gag ending, especially when he starts sneezing due to his allergies to cats.
-->'''Kokonoe''': Hmmm. I have to say, I kind of like the way your voice sounds right now... Are you crying? Is this the result of a suppressed fight-or-flight response constricting your airway?\\
'''Hazama''': No, this is *sneeze* *sneeze* I'm just allergic to--*sneeze*\\
'''Kokonoe''': Allergic to cats? Oh, an antigen-antibody reaction. You're experiencing anaphylactic shock, huh?\\
'''Hazama''': Just stay right where you are, all right?! You're freaking me out!\\
'''Kokonoe''': Oh, you look so damn scared... Your face looks like a balloon, and you've got some sort of liquid oozing out of just about every hole in it... Ahaha! This is wonderful! Suffer some more! He he he...
* CatSmile: For obvious reasons.
* CombatStilettos
* DeadpanSnarker: ''Constantly.'' She's almost on par with Rachel here.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: She wears them, but she's constantly seen in official art with at least one off.
* DropTheHammer: One of her main weapons is a giant one with a [[ThisIsADrill drill]] on one end and [[RocketPoweredWeapon a rocket on the other]]. For bonus points, she summons it out of a literal {{Hammerspace}} portal and then throws it back in there when she's done with it.
* EmotionSuppression: At the end of her arcade mode, [[spoiler: she claims she rewired her brain so she doesn't feel hatred towards Terumi. It's not known wether she actually has done that or she's just messing with him.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: She's disgusted by Relius Clover's treatment of Carl. Justified because [[NotSoDifferent she apparently has parental issues of her own.]]
-->''What you're doing...is no longer science.''
* EvilLaugh: Played for laughs in Tager's joke ending. She also has a variety of them in-game, especially during her Astral. Sometimes overlaps with NoblewomansLaugh in the Japanese dub.
* [[FieryRedhead Fiery Pinkhead]]: Inherited her mother's volatile temper. Like Nine, she ''does'' have a softer side, but good luck getting Kokonoe to show it.
* FightingClown: In an interesting twist, she's a fairly important character plot-wise who you'd ''expect'' to be a hardcore badass in combat, but she turns out to be plenty cartoony as a fighter: her dash has Kokonoe riding on a motorized scooter, she makes use of ACME rockets and a giant Golden Tager X, and her giant wrench has a CatSmile scribbled on each head. That said, given her preference for MoreDakka, she's not quite on par with Tao.
* FireIceLightning: Her specials include a gun which shoots {{Fireball}}s, a FreezeRay and a KillSat which shoots out electric lasers.
* FourthWallMailSlot: She gets ''Help Me! Prof. Kokonoe!'' in the console version of ''Continuum Shift''.
* FrickinLaserBeams: One of her supers summons a '''[[Memes/BlazBlue GIGANTIC TAGER]]''' that fires an XBOX HUEG laser out of its chest. The Overdrive version turns it into '''[[GoldenSuperMode SUPER GOLDEN TAGER X]]'''.
** WaveMotionGun
* GadgeteerGenius: Her fighting style incorporates several scientific devices, including a hammer, a wrench, gravity generators, and even [[FreezeRay freeze guns]].
* GatlingGood: [[GunsAkimbo Double gatlings]] even better.
* GeniusSweetTooth: [[OralFixation She's often seen with a lollipop or other kind of sweet candy]] (even in the middle of battle, as ''CP'' will attest). Her lab is actually ''filled'' with them.
** The side material also states that one of her hobbies is collecting candy.
** She also has a weakness for Ferero Roche chocolates.
* GodzillaThreshold: [[spoiler: She has an entire bunker full of nukes she aims to use to blow Terumi skyhigh. She repurposes them for use against Take-Mikazuchi near the end of ''Chronophantasma''.]]
* HairDecorations: Ties up her hair in the back with a yellow ribbon.
* HotScientist
* InsufferableGenius: She ''loves'' bragging about her intelligence.
* JerkassFacade: She may be a hard-ass, but she genuinely cares for her subordinates. Even if she has to be dragged kicking and screaming to show it.
* KidWithTheRemoteControl: She is in possession of Tager's controls, making her a KidWithTheLeash as well.
** Lampshaded by Tager in one of his alternate endings, where she upgrades him to take on Bang Shishigami by turning him into '''[[Anime/GaoGaiGar SUPER GOLDEN TAGER!]]'''
** If Kokonoe defeats Tager, she uses her remote to open a portal beneath him, stating that "[[WeCanRebuildHim it's time for more upgrades]]".
*** That same remote also teleports Azrael away if she defeats him, too.
---> "Time to put you back into your cage. Aaaand click."
%%Note: a Lethal Joke Character is a Joke Character (i.e. a purposely terrible character) with a few utilities that make them surprisingly lethal in the right hands. From what we've seen of her so far and all of the talk over her infamous unblockable setups (to the point that she's apparently been already banned in Japanese play), Kokonoe better fits the Fighting Clown trope, a character with clear strengths that fights in an absurd manner. Unless further examination of Kokonoe proves otherwise or she eats a Tager-sized nerf hammer, do not add Lethal Joke Character back to this section.
* MadScientist: [[spoiler:She did build Tager as he is, plus any "enhancements" she puts on him are simply outrageous (and if she did put them on him, he never knew, which scares or embarrasses him when he finds out). She even has "designs" in mind for Hakumen, which seem to terrify him (and then there's her personality when she thinks loudly about it).]]
* MissionControl: To Tager and Lambda.
-->'''Kokonoe''' (''in Teach Me, Miss Litchi!''): C'mon, Tager. We have shit to do...\\
'''Kokonoe''': Lambda, retreat now.
* MotherlyScientist: She fusses over Lambda quite a bit, and tries to take the best care of her that she can. It's mostly the result of guilt about bringing her back as a weapon [[spoiler:and helping create the Murakumo Units]] in the first place. However, sometimes, it comes off making her look even worse.
* NominalHero: She's highly unethical, extremely questionable in morality (especially the nukes she had, not to mention her disregards for the welfare of many others, ask Bullet), and pretty insufferable. The only thing that makes her qualify as a "hero" is because the opposition is someone as evil as Terumi. Even then, at best she'd be the TokenEvilTeammate.
* NotSoAboveItAll: In Tager's joke ending, she manages to match up with Bang in terms of hamminess.
* NotSoDifferent: In ''Teach Me, Ms. Litchi!'', Litchi notes that "[Kokonoe and Taokaka] are more alike than they seem. There's only a thin line between genius and... [[TheDitz Tao]]."
** In ''CS'', [[spoiler:Kokonoe herself wonders if she's that different from Arakune.]]
* NotWorthKilling: [[spoiler: After defeating Terumi in her arcade mode, he dares her to finish him off, but Kokonoe refuses, stating she won't kill him until she's sure she can destroy him completely.]]
* PetTheDog: In Litchi's bad ending, [[spoiler:she runs her old colleague's clinic when Litchi's afflicted with a terminal disease, and aids in attempting to find a cure for her affliction.]] It's ambiguous just how much time has passed, so looked at in the right way, it may also mean that [[spoiler:she put her own desires for vengeance away to help one of the few friends she has in the world.]] Although, [[spoiler:it's probably too late to make any difference...]]
** Also has a few of these in her treatment of Lambda, perhaps the only character in the game who she ''never'' rants at and belittles. This seems to be a recurrent theme whenever someone gets hurt because her actions [[KickTheDog genuinely cross the line]].
** In the Continuum Shift extra story about Relius Clover, Kokone's interactions with Roy can give off this feeling. Though we already know how her treatment of the guy [[SanitySlippage turns out]] her insults seem to be mostly teasing, and it was really heartwarming when she thanked him for "not dying on her".
* PileBunker: Her throw sees Kokonoe ramming one of these ([[NothingUpMySleeve taken from out of her sleeve]]) into her opponent with enough force to make them rebound off of the far wall.
* PowerFist: Shows off some boxing chops with her mechanical gauntlets, even being able to perform her own version of the [[VideoGame/FatalFury Buster]] [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Wolf]].
** Her match intro against Tager has her working on one before he arrives.
* RetiredMonster: Kokonoe has a ''very'' shady past. [[spoiler:This lady was partially responsible for the creation of Arakune (through neglect) and even had a part in building up Relius' Ignis (that's his WIFE). But as of today, she's against Relius and Terumi, although she makes it clear that she's cranky and not very nice, nor having regrets of what she's done in the past. Tager eventually knew this, [[MyMasterRightOrWrong but placed his faith in her nonetheless]].]]
* RocketRide: Her air dash.
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud: If her defeated opponent is one she has to haul back to Sector Seven (Tager for more upgrades, Azrael to place him back in jail), Kokonoe pulls out a remote teleporter and sends them back while letting out a somewhat bored-sounding "Aaand click." Also, during one of her arieals, she'll yell out "pow pow pow" in an equally uninterested tone.
* SexyWalk: For some reason, despite looking incredibly bored by the entire prospect of actually fighting (see also: [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters K']]), Kokonoe's walking animation is this, complete with {{hair flip}}ping.
* [[spoiler:[[HeWhoFightsMonsters She Who Fights Monsters]]: If her plan of using Lambda-11 to fight Terumi or the protagonists fighting Take-Mikazuchi fails, she has a backup... [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill many, MANY nuclear missiles]].]]
* SirSwearsALot: She is surprisingly foul-mouthed, to the point of being the only character who gets [[CensoredForComedy bleeped]]. Even Ragna and Terumi, who between them have said just about every swear word in the book, have yet to manage that.
** The most notable time she gets bleeped is in Rachel's Gag Reel, when she talks about what she intended to do to Ragna after putting him to sleep with the sleeping pill in the candy she offered him. Interestingly, the bleeps that are put in are the names of Ragna's techniques.
--->'''Kokonoe''': Well, no reason not to tell you. First I intended to take his XXX ("Inferno Divider!") and put it in a XXX ("Carnage Scissors!"). Maybe a little XXX ("Gauntlet Hades!") too? My goodness, I can only imagine what his XXX ("Hell's Fang!") will XXX ("Dead Spike!")!\\
'''Noel''': Wh-wh-WHAT?! How could you stoop so low? That's totally unfair!
** Interestingly averted with her dialogue as a playable character, she's relatively clean mouthed.
* [[SquishyWizard Squishy Scientist]]: Teleportation, elemental attacks, and powerful weapons at her disposal, but all that time in the lab hasn't done her endurance any wonders. Like Terumi, ironically enough, she only has 10500 HP.
* [[spoiler:SugarAndIcePersonality]]
* SweetTooth: She loves her catnip lollipops.
* TeleportersAndTransporters: Uses a portable teleporter similar to the device she used for Lambda to warp around the battlefield.
* ThisCannotBe: Her shocked reaction when she sees Relius again in his Gag Reel:
-->'''Relius''': Kokonoe, my dear, how long has it been?\\
'''Kokonoe''': ...?! Relius Clover?! Impossible! You're... you're supposed to be dead...!
* TheReveal: Bit of a minor one considering everything else going on in the story, but in Chronophantasma she reveals that [[spoiler:one of the reasons Arakune is still around is because she is his Observer.]]
* ThisIsUnforgivable: She says this to Hazama in his ''Continuum Shift'' arcade run before he fights Lambda-11.
-->'''Kokonoe''': I've just got one question to ask you. Why did you betray my mother? \\
'''Hazama''': "Betray?" C'mon, don't give me that. It's not like the Six Heroes were buddies... then the other day, I told the old man, "We're buddies, right?!" Hahahahaha!\\
'''Kokonoe''': You... you bastard! I'll never forgive you! Lambda! Kick the shit out of him!
* TokenEvilTeammate: A {{Foil}} for Litchi in the NOL, Kokonoe is mostly self-serving and highly destructive, but on the good guy team, while Litchi, trying to help others and pacifistic unless necessary, is on the bad guy team. Unfortunately, Kokonoe's in a ''worse'' scale than Jin in this trope; at least Jin is making efforts to get rid of the "Token Evil" part, Kokonoe doesn't even bother to clean her questionable past and keeps adding more and more dirty laundries.[[spoiler:As of the ending of Chronophantasma she finally learns that Phantom is in fact her mother Nine. Whether this may cause her to change her ways is something only time will tell of.]]
* UsedToBeASweetKid: From but [[http://static1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130327161722/blazblue/images/9/92/Ps410.png one picture of a young Kokonoe and her father]] from ''Phase Shift 4'' (and an offhand comment from Jubei about how great marriage and parenthood was before Kokonoe hit puberty) does one get the feeling that, while naturally sour, Kokonoe would've been far less rough around the edges if not for Terumi murdering her mother.
* TheUnfettered: As she puts it.
-->'''Kokonoe''': I'd do anything to kill you, Terumi, no matter how underhanded.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Played straight and {{subverted|Trope}}. While she is extreme in her methods (nukes, anyone?), her end goal is Terumi's destruction... and yet the lion's share of her motivation is revenge for her mother's death, and she doesn't take well to the possibility of kill theft. On the other hand, if Sector Seven at large thinks releasing [[BloodKnight Az]][[AxCrazy ra]][[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast el]] is a good idea...
* WrenchWhack: Her other main weapon is a big wrench. She [[WeaponTwirling twirls it around]] in one of her win poses.
** WrenchWench
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Pink Hair]]

[[folder:Yuuki Terumi]]
[[caption-width-right:280: [[LaughingMad EHIHYIIHIIHIHI, HYAHYAHYAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!]]]]
-->''Now, suffer... Struggle, and kill each other to your heart's content! Let me see you dance to that wretched shriek! The "Nemesis Horizon" is about to open...''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/YuuichiNakamura / Creator/DougErholtz

-> Hazama's true identity, now made into a separate character [[spoiler: due to Rachel and Trinity materializing his true form from within his Hazama body.]] He is a DLC character who will be available at a later date after the game launches. Those who pre-order the game, however, will receive a code to unlock him as a bonus.

-> Terumi no longer has Ouroboros as his Drive, even though he still uses the twin knives as his weapons. His new Drive is called '''Force Eater''', and all of his Drive attacks have heavy meter gain, while the opponent gains none from being hit by them. His Overdrive is '''Nightmare Reaper''', which strengthens his Distortion Drives while allowing his Drive to actively steal meter from his opponent. He is described as "a character with more Distortion Drives than specials", which was later proven true upon the reveal that he has no less than '''SIX''' supers at his disposal.

-> His Astral, '''Unholy Wrath of the Basilisk''', has him throw two Ouroboros hooks into the ground, targeting the opponent's current location. If they connects, the opponent is ensnared by chains as Terumi opens a portal behind him, laughing maniacally as a stream of snake-shaped green and black energy orbs bombard the opponent. He then transforms into "Dark Susano'o", a shadow version of Hakumen with TronLines on certain areas of his armor, and slashes the opponent.

* AnimalMotifs: Much like his "other" self, the snake. Even without a great reliance on Ouroboros, Terumi gets around this by using various moves that create snakes out of his signature green-and-black ghostly energy.
* AttackAttackAttack: His playstyle.
* AxCrazy: Extreme emphasis on '''crazy'''.
* {{Badass}}: To the extreme, as he's implied to be ''even stronger'' than [[spoiler: Hazama with the Azure Grimore activated]], which is made evident by him [[spoiler: fighting [[WorldsStrongestMan Hakumen]] to a complete standstill]].
** BadassBack: If you're lucky enough to not be on the receiving end of a stomping upon losing to him, he'll just juggle his knife a bit and swing his arm around to show off the incredibly stylish designs on his incredibly cool longcoat.
** BadassLongcoat: Trades in Hazama's trademark coat and fedora for the stylish jacket he wore during the Dark War.
** BadassBoast: During his Astral.
-->'''Terumi:''' ''I'' am the one, '''true''' Susano'o! '''''Die!'''''
* BeatingADeadPlayer: One of his victory animations has him curbstomping the defeated opponent once in the head. Sometimes he stomps the opponent's head twice and kicks them off-screen. Ragna gets ''ten'' extra stomps which ends with Terumi grinding his foot on Ragna's head.
* BerserkButton: Rachel, even more so than usual.
--> '''Terumi:''' "Stop meddling in my '''shit'''!"
* BlatantLies: Even if one takes into account the fact that he might be going full-throttle at SarcasmMode, his taunt, "I really hate bullying", really cannot be considered anything but the statement furthest from the truth he has ever made.
* BloodKnight: He makes no attempt at hiding how much he ''loves'' beating the shit out of his opponents.
--> "Stand up! I'm not satisfied yet!"
* BouncingBattler[=/=]SpeedBlitz: His ''Screeches of the Condemned'' Distortion Drive in a nutshell, finishing the job with a MeteorMove where he covers himself in his SicklyGreenGlow and ''dunks'' the opponent into the floor, dragon roar including and everything.
* BreakTheHaughty: See VillainousBreakdown. Some arcade endings have karma biting Terumi back, [[spoiler: with Story Mode ultimately killing him outright.]]
* CardCarryingVillain: While Hazama may have had a perpetual sense of condescending faux-innocence and two-timing, Terumi makes no bones about what an awful, sickening piece of work he is. In fact, he'll tell you himself. He LOVES making people miserable.
* CastingAShadow
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler:Founded the Librarium ''and'' Sector Seven, and has been playing the two against each other all along.]]
* CleavageWindow: Male example, what with his unbuttoned shirt.
* CombatPragmatist: While Hazama's style was graceful and somewhat martial arts inspired, Terumi's is far more barbaric and cruel, forgoing the flashy dance moves for roughneck brawling and savage knife techniques.
* CounterAttack: His ''Venomous Bite'' is this. It's also very hard to see coming because the "counter pose" looks startlingly much like his regular walking animation [[note]]You can tell if it's the counter animation if he's spinning Ouroboros in one hand[[/note]] and doesn't have the super flash before opponent hits Terumi.
* [[spoiler:CriticalExistenceFailure: Hakumen finally slays Terumi using [[OneHitKill Time Killer]], erasing Terumi from all traces of time to ensure he's never coming back.]]
* DarkIsEvil: Even more blatant than Hazama.
* DownloadableContent: Of the PreOrderBonus variety, although he'll be made available for those who didn't at a later date.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler:Well, you fight Terumi fair and square during Story Mode, but the issue is the death itself. There's no BigNO, no villainous rant, no SkywardScream, not even an animated cutscene. It's just... poof, he's dead. It's been fun. Don't come back.]]
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: [[spoiler: In Kokonoe's arcade mode,. Due to his ability to feed on hatred, he genuinely shocked that Kokonoe refuses to kill him, even moreso when she tells him she doesn't feel any hate towards him despite him murdering her mother.]]
-->'''Terumi:''' [[spoiler:You look your mother's killer in the face and don't feel anything?! Geez, and people call ''me'' crazy!]]
* EvilCounterpart: See [[Characters/BlazBlueContinuumShift Hazama's entry]] for more info.
** As already alluded to by his backstory and Mu-12's title for him in ''CS'' (the Black Susano'o), his Astral makes him one, if only in aesthetics, to Hakumen, the White Susano'o and current user of the Susano'o Unit.
** Can also be seen as one to Ragna. They are both extremely efficient rushdown characters who can refill their own gauges from hitting the opponent with their drives.
* EvilGloating: Why of course!
--> "Damn I'm strong!"
* EvilLaugh: Bar none the most glorious example in the game.
* TheFightingNarcissist: Though he doesn't seem to particularly care about his own looks, one still cannot ignore the fact that about half of his battles quotes revolve around beating into his opponent's head his own self-aggrandized opinion of how absolutely awesome he is.
* FingerlessGloves
* GigglingVillain
* GlassCannon: There is plenty of offensive potential for his attacks and Force Eater, but at 10500 HP he can't take much punishment. He actually has ''less'' health than Hazama. Justified in that if he had normal defenses with his Drive mechanics and huge amounts of offensive potential, he would be very, very broken.
** Furthermore, Terumi lacks many reliable reversals and defensive options, meaning the only way to play him [[AttackAttackAttack is to be as reckless as possible]].
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: His already creepy snake eyes shine out from under his hood.
* HellishPupils
* TheHyena: UpToEleven, he laughs or giggles every two or three moves.
* IllKillYou: Whenever he activates his Overdrive.
* InsaneEqualsViolent: As mentioned above; though Hazama's fighting style has a certain dance-like grace about it befitting his faux-gentlemanly behavior, Terumi simply thrashes his opponents and doesn't let such minor things as their untimely deaths stop him from continuing his fun.
* InTheHood: Has ditched his much-beloved fedora and longcoat ensemble for his [[BadassLongcoat badass cloak]] from the Dark War.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Furthering this from Hazama, one of his winposes is [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown kicking the downed opponent]] and then punting them off screen so that he's the only one in the limelight.
* UsefulNotes/JapanesePronouns: Refers to himself with the ''extremely'' arrogant "Ore-sama."
* {{Jerkass}}: Imagine the most horrible person in human history, whoever you may think that is. Now multiply that by eleven and you have an inkling of how horrible Terumi is. He will admit, nay, blatantly ''flaunt'' the fact that he does not have a single redeemable trait. And he ''loves'' it.
* KickTheDog: It's just what he does. Played with mockingly whenever he wins against Ragna, who he has referred to before as "Puppy", where he proceeds to kick his corpse '''ten''' times before tell him how he sucks.
* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: He both has one special attack with which he violently stomps on a downed opponent as well as his own version of Hazama's ''The Serpents Unholy Wrath''. For added bonus points, Terumi's is actually meant to be used on downed opponents.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:After all the atrocities he's commited throughout the series, Terumi finally earns his long overdue commeuppance at the hands of Hakumen during ''Chronophantasma''.]]
** IronicDeath[=/=]KarmicDeath: [[spoiler: Pseudo-meta example; Terumi always saw himself as the most interesting and awesome person in the world. His death at the hands of Hakumen was seen by many of his fans as an extreme anticlimax, something that Terumi himself would have hated.]]
* [[SwordDrag Knife Drag]]: Drags his knife across the ground while running.
* KnifeNut: Alongside his butterfly knives, Terumi can [[ShapingYourAttacks construct a short blade out of dark energy]] during ''Serpent's Cursed Sting'', wherein he carves up his opponents a couple times, ensnares them with snake arms, and then seals the deal with a final attack (dependent upon how long Terumi traps his foe, which in turn drains the remainder of his Heat Gauge).
* KryptoniteFactor: As powerful as Terumi is, he's just as helpless as Ragna in [[spoiler: Celica's]] presence due to their Azure Grimoires being shut down. [[spoiler: When Kokonoe lures him into a trap by using Ragna as bait and shows off Celica, he's practically begging Phantom to get him away from her.]]
* LargeHam: Hazama was already absurdly hammy when he got going. Terumi is in a perpetual state of [[NoIndoorVoice screaming at the top of his lungs]], giggling like a madman and shouting about how awesome he is and how much his opponent sucks. Special mention goes to his MotiveRant at the end of Episode 13.
--> ''How many years... [[TimeAbyss How many years?]] Oh, how many years I've waited. [[GroundhogDayLoop How many times has this been repeated?]] How many ''hundreds'' of times?! How many ''THOUSANDS''?! '''''[[SerialEscalation ONE HUNDRED THOUSANDS?! MILLIONS?!]]''''' '''[[UpToEleven TRILLIONS?!]]''' I've repeated this worthless comedy show more times than I can '''count'''! Hmhmhmhm... Yes... Just a little bit more... Just a bit more, and it will be within reach[[spoiler: - the lost [[XblazeCodeEmbryo "Embryo"]]]]. Once that's done, this shitty, worthless comedy show will end. Hatred will beget more hatred. War will beget more war. [[spoiler: The party will turn to heavenly disaster, and all of the dead souls will be invited to the Doomsday! And then...a new "BlazBlue" will be born.]]''
* LaughablyEvil: Due to his extreme ham, constant cackling and hilarious lines, it's kinda hard not to at least smile whenever Terumi is played.
* LaughingMad: Now that he's decided to come out and play, Terumi takes this trope [[UpToEleven Up To Eleven Million]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ccP2ITompu8#t=7 Jesus Christ...]]
* LiteralSplitPersonality: Terumi is actually a separate entity from "Hazama", they just inhabit the same body(Hence why they both have two different sets of story portraits). [[spoiler: In the Six Heroes route of CP, the remaining heroes along with Rachel drove him out of his Hazama body so that they can kill him directly, hence why the two are seperate playable characters now.]]
* LovesTheSoundOfScreaming: Fitting his sadistic nature, he ''loves'' to hear his enemies scream in pain.
-->'''Terumi:''' Make sure you do your part, and ''scream'' for me!
* ManaDrain: This is his Drive ability in a nutshell. It doesn't actually drain the opponent's Heat, though (but the opponent doesn't gain any Heat from blocking or getting hit by it, either), and good thing that is, considering the rate at which Terumi can gain Heat with Force Eater.
** As noted above, in Overdrive mode it actually DOES drain Heat, though... Be afraid, be ''very'' afraid.
* TheMirrorShowsYourTrueSelf: If snared by Relius' Astral, a mirror placed behind Terumi shows his ghost form in its reflection, complete with the perpetually required SlasherSmile.
* TheNicknamer: Rachel is "Shitty Vampire", Valkenhayn is "Old Fart", Trinity Glassfille is "Four-Eyes", Ragna is "Little Puppy", Noel is "Little Doll", and so forth.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: His fighting style in a nutshell.
* NoSocialSkills: Played darkly. Unlike Hazama, who has a perpetual sense of condensendingly faux-gentlemanly behavior. Terumi curses constantly, insults and threatens everyone around him, has NoIndoorVoice, and doesn't utter a single line of dialouge that doesn't relate to hurting someone.
* NotWorthKilling: One of his winposes is to stomp on his defeated opponent before walking away.
* ObviouslyEvil: Let's see: [[CastingAShadow Powers of darkness]] [[ThePowerOfHate that are fuled by hate?]] Check. [[SnakesAreEvil Snake motifs?]] Check. SlasherSmile? Check. [[ForTheEvulz Commits acts of evil for fun?]] Check. [[LaughingMad Tendencies to laugh maniacally?]] Check. [[AxCrazy Dangerously psychopathic?]] Check. Yep, definitely a villain.
* OneHitKill: Possible with Overdrive and 100% Meter. A [[http://youtu.be/t-UcmFjhUZs?t=1m49s 22C->Overdrive->22C->6232146D combo]] can do up towards of '''10800 damage''', effectively insta-gibbing a majority of the cast. Of course having 100% Meter while your opponent is at full health is completely implausible, but he deserves mention for being possibly the only non-Unlimited character capable of this in a game almost completely devoid of [[InstantDeathRadius touch of death combos]].
* OneWingedAngel: While not a transformation in the vein of Mu-12 and Izayoi, Terumi ditching his Hazama identity shows that he's done playing games. [[spoiler:Subverted when it's revealed this is actually the representation of Terumi within his own mind, separate from Hazama (who's body the duo share). The remaining Six Heroes drew him out with BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind. He himself ''never'' intended to manifest.]]
** Gets a more literal one with has Astral, which has him take the form of an evil, shadow version of Hakumen, referencing the period of time he wore the Susano'o Unit.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: A psychopathic ghost that feeds on hatred and commits attrocites for his own [[ForTheEvulz twisted amusement]]. Sounds about right.
* PowerEchoes: When assuming the form of the Black Susano'o for the finishing blow of his Astral. The English voice acting combines it with PowerMakesYourVoiceDeep.
--> "I am the ''true'' Susano'o! '''DIE!'''"
* PowerGlows: His end-of-match winpose has [[BattleAura an aura of Ouroboros energy surrounding him]] as he goes LaughingMad in a way that would make [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Iori Yagami]] go cry in a corner.
* ThePowerOfHate: He feeds off the hatred of others. [[spoiler: Kokonoe's Arcade Mode slightly [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructs]] this. The reason he's so strong in battle is beacuse he feeds off his opponent's hatred. The more his opponent hates him, the stronger he gets. But Kokonoe counters this by rewiring her mind to not feel any emotions towards him. This ends up depriving him of the hatred to fuel his strength and thus, he's soundly beaten as a result.]]
* {{Sadist}}: Having tagged out Hazama so that he can do things ''his'' way, most of Terumi's attacks revolve around treating his opponents like trash by stepping on them, pushing them away from [[ItsAllAboutMe his radiant self]] and relentlessly taunting them. Heck, it could be argued that the reason his moveset primarily consists of low damage multi-hit attacks is simply because he wants to see his enemy suffer as much as possible before he kills them..
* SicklyGreenGlow: Roughly 90% of his attacks have it.
* SirSwearsALot: Wouldn't be Terumi if he wasn't being as vulgar as possible!
--> '''Rachel''' (''during match intros''): [[LampshadeHanging "You are as vulgar as ever, Terumi."]]
* SlasherSmile[=/=]PsychoticSmirk: His face is permanently locked into one or the other, or a mix of the two.
* SmugSuper: There is nothing in all of existence Terumi loves more than himself. And he has the power to back up his TrashTalk.
* SnakesAreEvil: Duh.
* TheSociopath: People are just his stress toys, and he likes beating and humiliating those stress toys a lot.
* [[spoiler:{{Synchronization}}: Despite being separate beings, when Hakumen uses Time Killer on Terumi, ''something'' happens to Hazama as well, though he doesn't disappear as Terumi did.]]
* SupernaturalGoldEyes
* ThemeNaming: Like Hazama, all of his attacks except ''Screeches of the Condemmed'' and ''Divine Twin Blades'' are named after snakes.
* ThisCannotBe: [[spoiler: In Kokonoe's Arcade Mode, he's genuinely shocked when she manages to defeat him.]]
* TooManyBelts: Or rather, [[{{Pun}} Two Many Belts]].
* TrashTalk: Whenever he's not talking about how amazing he is, he talks about how pathetic his opponent is instead. He even says "IDIOT!" on every back dash.
--> "I'm waiting for you to ''suck less''!"
--> "How many minutes would you last? Or should I say seconds?"
--> "You scared?"
--> "Sucks to be you!"
* TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty: Uses a lot of really sneaky, underhanded tactics and brutal moves.
* ToCreateAPlaygroundForEvil: Terumi's ultimate goal, as stated above in the LargeHam entry, is to create a world where people will kill each other for his own amusement.
* UnexpectedCharacter: In the same vein as Izayoi, nobody ever suspected that ''Hazama'', of all people, would get a second form.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Part of what makes Terumi so rewarding (aside from his very fast paced rushdown style) is the sheer CatharsisFactor of playing the most evil son of a bitch in the whole game and beating opponents into submission with his brutal fighting style. [[EvilFeelsGood There's no feeling quite like winning a hard fought match, and then seeing Terumi kick the ever loving]] '''[[EvilFeelsGood SHIT]]''' [[EvilFeelsGood out of his battered victim as they lie helpless to do anything about it.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: Happens ''three'' times over the course of ''Chronophantasma''.
** [[spoiler: After hearing Trinity's confessional in his own Arcade epilogue, he realizes that Trinity materialized him into the real world and into Ikaruga. Then Hazama pipes in and tells them that they have switched places. Realizing that Jubei can kill him after these arrangements, he curses out Trinity and Rachel over what transpired.]]
*** [[spoiler:Similarly, in Story Mode, Terumi freaks out when he realized that Trinity had materialized him into the real world which is only further exacerbated when he's cornered by [[WorldsStrongestMan Hakumen]], [[BadassGrandpa Jubei]], and [[PowerNullifier Celica]]. Had Phantom not arrived to rescue him, he would have been killed right then and there.]]
** [[spoiler:In Kokonoe's Arcade epilogue, After being soundly beaten by Kokonoe due to her rewiring her brain to not feel emotions toward him ([[ThePowerOfHate depriving him of the hatred to fuel his strength]]), he swears at her to finish him off, but she won't hear any of it until she knows for a fact that she can destroy him completely.]]
** [[spoiler:In Hazama's Arcade epilogue and in Story Mode, he is reduced to panicking and practically begs Phantom to teleport him away when Kokonoe reveals Celica, who's natural ability to nullify seithr causes his Azure Grimiore to shut down, rendering him powerless.]]
