If you were to say something about Literature/{{KIKEN}}, surely you'd go for something along the lines of Franchise/DotHack [[JustForFun/XMeetsY meets]] {{X1999}} [[XMeetsY meets]] [=BaSTOF Lemon=] [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs on even more]] AxCrazy {{Yandere}}s, seasoned with [[ClusterFBomb heavy and frequent swearing]], and garnished with [[BoysLove yaoi]] [[HoYay and]] [[GirlsLove yuri]]. Here are the characters that go for it.

!The Crystal Dogs
The mission of the Crystal Dogs is to erase the ongoing war between the reformists and revolutionaries, called The Conflict of Tin and Brass. There are three members to this group, with a supporting band called The Sleepy Hollow.

!!Kakeru Kouen
-->''"So we're putting ourselves through hell!?"''

Kakeru Kouen is a boy who is tall for his age, as he is a basketball player who likes drinking milk. But Kakeru doesn't just like sports, he likes reading up on various subjects that can be informative or fictional.

* AccidentalPervert: Kakeru actually stared at one of the teachers due to her cans one time.
* {{Bishonen}}: Mind you, Kakeru is pretty androgynous for a 15-year old.
* TheBeautifulElite: Subverted, Kakeru attends Hikariyama on scholarship, but his cousin is a notorious journalist.
* DarkSkinnedRedhead: Kakeru is one, and he's a pretty good jock. Subverted--he isn't really ''that'' energetic. Double Subverted when you find out that he's just very eager.
* Determinator: He stopped at nothing to get Kinji and Ginrou into the Org!
* DumbIsGood: Averted, Kakeru knows a lot of things for his age.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Along with [[TokenMiniMoe Kogawa]] and [[HoYay Derani]], no less.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Pops up due to Hubspace's hypnosis, granting him the power to involuntary erase recent memories. GoneHorriblyRight, even!
* MaleGaze: Kakeru suffers from it, especially whenever sleepy. His work is centered around Hubspace, and he can only do so much in 4 hours.
* WideEyedIdealist: Kakeru is, by default, the new leader of the Tin Herons after [[spoiler:Kinji's murder-suicide.]] He's actually quite Humanist, you know.
----

!!Derani Terasuma
-->''"So anyway, do you think these groups question reality?"''

Derani is considerably more bookish than Kakeru, as he is generally a better notemaker than Kakeru. Derani doesn't really engage in sports, and is more cynical than his idealistic counterpart, yet he often remains optmistic.

* {{Bishonen}}: Derani's also just as half-and-half as Kakeru in terms of looks, and he wants [[{{Fangirl}} fangirls]] that bad!
* ButNotTooForeign: Derani's part-Australian and runs an English-language net radio show that's SonicTheHedgehog remix-centric. His English name is also supposed to be Delaney Terrence, but his dad was a bit of a Weeaboo.
* CloningBlues: Averted! Derani's quite happy he [[spoiler:has a little brother in the form of Dylan.]] He always wanted one!
* DeadpanSnarker: He's the type who actually even ''insults'' you for implausibility!
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Kakeru and Kogawa, but neither of them knows why Derani founded the Brotherhood of the Crystal Dogs.
* JadeColoredGlasses: Derani is a cynic. A '''''heavy''''' cynic. But subverted when you find out he's really starting to get a good grasp on true love.
** KnightInSourArmor: This is what he became.
* PhenotypeStereotype: Subverted! Derani IS blonde and blue-eyed, yet his facial structure resembles that of a Japanese teen, as well as his VERY pale skin.
* TVTropesWillEnhanceYourLife: Derani knew the word gambit.As in GambitIndex. Before that, he thought it was just a slang word!
** TVTropesWillRuinYourLife: [[FreudWasRight And]] [[DoubleEntendre it]] [[UnfortunateImplications certanily]] [[{{Fanservice}} has]] [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything been]] ruined!
----

!!Kogawa Nagari
-->"Clearly you need a few changes here and there, perhaps?"

Kogawa is a lot more worldly than Derani and Kakeru, resulting in her being a little more learned. She is also a new student in Hikariyama, which results in becoming a little more enigmatic, if not oh-so-mysterious to her 4th Grade classmates.

* ButNotTooForeign: Kogawa's actually part-Canadian, and her dad moved back to Yokohama due to the recession.
* CharacterBlog: The only way she can get those accurate memories off her chest.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Actually, Kogawa suffers from heterochromia: one blue eye, one hazel eye.
* LittleMissSnarker: Kogawa is no [[SuzumiyaHaruhi Kyonko]], but can she be snarky? And so can you!
** She's also a Troper. EVERY Troper is a DeadpanSnarker no matter what age!
* PhotographicMemory: Hubspace granted her this on the side, when she became a near-{{Hikikomori}}, but its limited to Hubspace-related stuffz.
* TokenMiniMoe: At least for the Crystal Dogs.
* TVTropesWillEnhanceYourLife: She picks apart certain things, but she doesn't snark the implausible that much. Wanna know what words she lives by?
** [[MST3KMantra She knows that's just a kid thing, she really should relax.]]
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: Kogawa enjoys fun much more that way, and uses her knowledge to her benefit. Justified in that Hikariyama actually makes you become wiser. Even at age 10!
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Cobalt hair. Like [[{{Higurashi}} Rika's]], but much darker.
----

!The Tin Herons[[spoiler:/The Gold Division of the Org]]
The mission of this group is to successfully reform the world to accomodate humans a little better. Composed of five schooling idealists, this group seeks out the good in all humans, even if they all are such [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Jerks With Hearts Of Gold.]]

!!Shouhei Tomogawa
-->"They can be pretty believable if you look at the details."

Shouhei is a basketball ace in Hikariyama, and ever since the Conflict began, he's become a lot more quiet and less rambunctious. He actually leads the Tin Herons, and naturally, the most powerful of them all. But if anything, he watches from the sidelines.

* TheHero: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that Shouhei knows how to lead various people of any age--as long as they're younger than him.
** TheBigGuy: Takes up Kinji's mantle after Kakeru [[spoiler: becomes the new leader of the Herons, and Kinji's suicide.]]
** StudentCouncilPresident: Shouhei's really good with knowing how to rule a group of people, especially if they're the same age. He's using the Conflict to learn how to gain the trust of people older than him.
* GeniusBruiser: Shouhei loves ''basketball'' AND Math more than anything.
* HumongousMecha: His Hubspace equipment takes up certain aspects of Franchise/{{Gundam}} and GurrenLagann.
* OutOfFocus: According to Dylan, that's why him and Hichou had been clamming up, in turn due to [[spoiler: ThePlan they were trying to seperate themselves from..]]
* ThoseTwoGuys: [[SubvertedTrope SUBVERTED!]] Yes, really. Even though they seem to be background characters, him and Shouhei really are significant to the plot. They created the whole '''[[spoiler:goddamn Conflict in the first place!]]'''
* WarriorPoet: Shouhei is not only a jock--he's quite a planner for his age, as well as a learned guy.
* XanatosGambit: There's another article for that.
----

!!Rukao Minami
-->“’Kay, seriously! Is PK’ing gonna be the next leading cause of comas?”

A former {{hikikomori}} who chooses to go back to reality with the use of the Conflict. Takes up a literature course in Hikariyama University, and wants to use the Conflict as inspiration. He knows a lot more about Hubspace and how it works than Shouhei.

* AuthorAvatar: One of ''two.'' Rukao, like [[Tropers/{{EPIC}} the author]] is a troper and can even [[LampshadeHanging Lampshade Hang]]... '''''[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything certain things.]]'''''
* BadassLongcoat: Coupled with no shirt and jeans only, no less. He's armed with a [[IncendiaryExponent burning]] morning star!
* DeadpanSnarker: He is slightly snarky, due to him being a Troper.
* EstrogenBrigadeBait: He's trying to avoid this, but even when he was a hikikomori, he actually had some gym equipment.
* {{Hikikomori}}: Rukao joining the Conflict will help him get his life back in shape, and since Nanako's helping him bring himself back to reality...
* TheLancer: As said, he knows a lot about Hubspace's rules and systems more than anyone else. But he's in good competition with Mila.
** TheSmartGuy: Can double as this. But Rukao deviates more from it.
* PermaStubble: Rukao got this when he was a hikikomori, and chose to keep it.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Of the BleachedUnderpants vareity. But when he feels more {{Badass}}, he starts to move into a Kamina-like look.
----

!!Mila Jonessy
-->'''''[[color:pink:DEN'NOU TEIJOU, LINEAR MOTOR GIRL EXECUTED!]]'''''

A fun-loving, Caucasian anti-[[GratuitousJapanese Wapanese]], Mila has a knack for learning and can learn all about freshman high-level IT in just 2 months. She loves being a slight Gothic Lolita. Tsugumu senses something with her and Dylan, both of them his batchmates.

* [[AscendedFanboy Ascended Fangirl]]: Thanks to Hubspace, Mila has become her very own magical girl.
* CosplayOtakuGirl: Her Hubspace avatar comprises of steampunk influences, Manga/CardcaptorSakura-like wands and a Gothic Lolita feel.
* [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Everything's Better With Empresses]]: Mila knows that empresses have more authority than princesses, so she becomes one in her alter-ego.
* GenreSavvy: About the MagicalGirl genre? Of course! She even becomes one.
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:Upon knowing that Dylan has traveled back in time to re-commit a massacre he did 15 minutes after.]]
** Due to in one AlternateContinuity sequel, Dylan travels to another dimension and this drives the Conflict's gap much further. Therfore, [[spoiler: this is why there's a series called [[MobileSuitGundamAVNA Gundam AVNA]] in the first place.]]
* MagicalGirl: When those of Hubspace are in trouble, who do they turn to!? Why, the Den'nou Teijou Linear Motor Girl, of course!
* MagicFromTechnology: Mila's alter-ego manifests as an upgrade to Hubspace encased in a heart-shaped thumbdrive.
* {{Meganekko}}: She says she looks more [[MoeMoe moe]] that way.
* TheSmartGuy: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed!]] Mila will inevitably learn anything--she's a kid. She ''loves'' learning in anyway. The sad part is, she's not good with physical activity and analysis--Mila can ''only'' know things.

!!Kinji Choutobi

!!Aria Tsubasajima
----

!The Sleepy Hollow
The mission of the Sleepy Hollow is to act as a reconnaissance unit for the Dogs, or whoever wants to erase Hubspace from the modern world as we know it. These kids double as the Hikariyama school band and are composed of four [[spoiler:(later five)]] members.

!!Yuuichi Minagawa
-->''"Oh my God, did I just gang-rape my own MoralityPet?"''

Yuuichi is the leader of the Hollows, and is a big brother to god-knows-how-many siblings. He is currently in a relationship with Fujiko, but she seems to be hiding something from him. Hopefully you all know your soap opera clichs by now!

* AuthorAvatar: More like Editor Avatar, due to the author's uncle editing his fanfics and OC fics.
* BigBrotherMentor: He is naturally a mentor to his siblings, and in the process, they get attached. Especially Tsugumu.
** BrightSlap: This time, it ''didn't'' work! [[spoiler:Tsugumu eventually [[CrossesTheLineTwice crossed the line twice]]]]. Besides, the author goes with the latter.
*** WhatHaveIDone: Upon realizing what happened to Tsuu-kun, ignoring the fact that [[spoiler:his twin sister ''[[IHaveNoSon rejected]]'' him.]] To be fair, [[spoiler:Tsugumu has already crossed the MoralEventHorizon]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: The NiceGuy persona ''only'' pops up around close friends and family.
* {{Bishounen}}: Long hair matched with that beanie hat, and a bit of a tan.
* TheHero: Yuuichi ''is'' the Hollow bandleader after all!
* MostFanficWritersAreGirls: Well, he averts this too. He wrote some KR fanfic back-in-the-day. Luckily, no Sues!
* ThePowerOfRock: He's good at GuitarHero, and is taking up actual guitar lessons.
----

!Amaki Kuranashi
-->''"Yuuichi, what the hell happened with you and Tou-pon?"''

Amaki is the second-in-command for the Hollows, and a keyboardist. Originally from 2112, Amaki joined the Hollows [[spoiler: so as to alter their dimension in the first place by preventing Hubspace from going very kookoo]]. And he's snarky.

* AfterTheEnd: This is where he's from, along with Dylan. At least an AU scenario where humankind has learned how to seperate dimensions, merge them to hell and back!
* DeadpanSnarker: Amaki became more of this after becoming a Troper.
* FishOutOfWater: Actually, not so much like the other examples: Amaki is already familiar with Earth due to being educated about life during our decade. But he was so immersed in it it became too much for him to handle!
* TheLancer: He and Yuuichi actually form a pair of BashBrothers!
* NiceGuy: Amaki may come across as slightly cynical, though.
* ThePowerOfRock: He's the bassist of the Hollows.
----

!Fujiko Motonomiya
-->[[spoiler:''"Well, Yuuichi Minagawa, I just had an abortion and I know you're pro-life."'']]

Fujiko is the main vocalist for the Sleepy Hollow, and Yuuichi's girlfriend. She's the one who gets the most info for the Hollows, thanks to a blog that she subscribes to. The blog is on Hubspace and divulges all info. Fujiko really loves it.

* BitchInSheepsClothing: You wanna know why her tropes are all so Spoileriffic?
* BrightSlap: Tsugumu slapped her and it ''worked.'' If not, she would've become the AlphaBitch who left the band.
* TheChick: Fujiko's supposed to be the moral compass of the group. But something says otherwise...
** DarkChick: Guess what part-time job she applied for? [[spoiler:Takeo's new assisstant.]]
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:She defected as soon as she left the Hollows.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: As soon as she [[spoiler:leaves the Hollows, she veers into this.]]
----

!Mika Kenzawa
-->''"Okay, that's ridiculous! Now she's [[spoiler:applying for a job in Yumegorosu?"]]''

* ActionGirl: Mika's a jock in Hikariyama, and note the two below tropes.
** TheBigGuy: Mika has a high attack and defense rate in Hubspace.
*** CuteBruiser: Mika's only 15 and slightly {{Moe}} for her age, yet can lift heavy cars and parts of buildings!
*** BadassAdorable: Actually, Badass Beautiful. Catch up with fashion trends and be strong, and this is the trope's poster child!
* GenkiGirl: Mika's also supposed to be a lot like [[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou Shiki]], due to the fact that they both love fashion, and are very hyper.
* TheLadette: She's quite boyish though, but to [[Series/HowIMetYourMother Lily levels]].
* ThePowerOfRock: Mika's the keyboardist for the Hollows. She's pretty good too, and also wants to DJ.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Actually, that guy and a girl. AKA Amaki and Mika.
** OutOfFocus: Well, she doesn't appear much in chapters.
*** Hopefully, she gains much more significance whenever the Hollows are all around.
----

!Tsugumu Minagawa
-->''"Whoever the fuck you are, whatever the hell you do,'' '''''[[IllKillYou I WILL KILL YOU!]]'''''

A happy-go-lucky 12-year old kid, Yuuichi's brother and Tsukiyo's twin. The twins are really attached to each other, and if ever you touch Tsukiyo, or try to flirt with the girl [[spoiler: let's hope you just get majorly injured.]]

* AuthorAvatar: One of ''three.'' Tsugumu is documenting the Conflict and owning a TV Tropes account much like this one.
* BigBrotherMentor: Practically the son of Yuuichi, even though they're literal brothers!
** BrightSlap: Subverted/Deconstructed. [[spoiler:After Yuuichi tries talking some sense into him, the results were conflicting with the fictional product of what happens after a BrightSlap.]]
* AdorablyPrecociousChild: The only one for the Hollows. Deconstructed in the fact that he's so curious to the point of asking personal questions, works hard because he's told to, and absolutely hates the workload he recieves thanks to school. He then uses Hubspace as a time to become a kid again, but this doesn't last long.
** BreakTheCutie: Look at the next 3 tropes, will you?
** DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Tsukiyo then hates him, Aniki slapped him, and Tsugumu's self-esteem has been lowered! YOU tell me how it feels for a kid to go through that.]]
*** [[CrossesTheLineTwice CrossesTheLine]] ''[[CrossesTheLineTwice i]]'' [[CrossesTheLineTwice Times]]: PlayedForDrama. [[spoiler: Tsugumu ends up causing a ''4th'' massacre and his in-game-suicide after what his siblings did to him.]]
* GenreSavvy: Tsugumu is a Troper who owns an account named Tropers/{{EPIC}}. So much for self-advertising, huh?
* {{Keet}}: TSUGUMU IS 'FUCKING GENKI! :D :D :D Yes, that's the normal amount of smileys he types in a Y!M sentence.

!Tsukiyo Minagawa
-->''"Okay, that's IT! I hate you now. I may as well reject you for the asshole you are.
