[[folder:Sion Eltnam Atlasia]]

!!Sion Eltnam Atlasia

!!!Voiced by: Creator/RioNatsuki (JP - ''Melty Blood'', ''Anime/CarnivalPhantasm''), Creator/SatomiAkesaka (JP - UnderNightInBirth, as "[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Eltnum]]")

--> ''"[[MemeticMutation All according to my calculations]]."''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sion_mbaa_5811.png

Sion is an Alchemist of Atlas, a magic organization in Egypt independent of the Mage's Association. According to her calculations, Tatari is going to manifest in Misaki. Bearing a grudge against the mysterious vampire, she came in an attempt to kill him. She quickly meets up with Shiki and commences the first battle of the story. Following that, she and Shiki track down the mysterious Tatari, but she eventually lies and says they have defeated him before they really have managed to do so. Shiki catches on and they eventually face Tatari in battle where, with the assistance of Arcueid, they finally manage to destroy him for real.

The reason for her grudge against the Tatari is rooted in a failed attempt by the Church to kill him at an earlier time. However, the rest of the group was killed, including her friend Riesbyfe Stridberg. Sion was only spared because Tatari realized she was a descendant of his, so he merely drank her blood. Due to the nature of the Tatari, she has yet to fully vampirize and intends to kill him before this can happen.

Vampire Sion/Sion TATARI is story-wise an AlternateContinuity where Sion has succumbed to her vampiric impulses and is on the verge of succeeding Wallachia as the new TATARI. Despite this [[GameplayAndStorySegregation she can still fight her normal self]].

----

* AlchemyIsMagic: "Mental" Alchemy, where the lineage is constantly upgrading their bloodline to have higher cognitive abilities. Traditional alchemists also exist.
* AlternateContinuity: Within MeltyBlood itself, one can play as "V. Sion/Sion Tatari" and "Normal Sion." Unlike other {{Evil Counterpart}}s who are just Tatari Nightmares, Vampire Sion is an Alternate Continuity where she succumbs to the bloodlust. Compare "Evil Ryu" from ''StreetFighter''.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Alchemists of Atlas are even capable of predicting the future because of this. It's basically a form of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laplace%27s_demon Laplace's Demon]].
* AxCrazy: Kinda. Since [=Re-Act=], Vampire Sion picks up her parent vampire's habit of shouting Katto during battle. It's not as extreme as his case, but hey, she still has to grow into the role...
* BerserkButton: Implying that she has been careless annoys her.
* TheChessmaster: Her forte.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DefeatMeansFriendship: With Akiha.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Courtesy of [[ChickMagnet Shiki]]. she goes from TheStoic to ShrinkingViolet in his presence.
* DirtyMindReading: At one point in manga Shiki politely, with friendly smile [[SchmuckBait asks her what he is thinking right now]]. After few seconds she blushes red as tomato, and angrily lashes out and hits him. Sadly, readers weren't told what was he thinking, or was Sion in it.
* GuestFighter: In UnderNightInBirth under the name [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Elthum]]. She appears as a hidden boss character.
* {{Handguns}}: Sion is the only Melty Blood character to carry a ballistic gun. She will run out of bullets and need to reload if you use it too much.
* HiddenBuxom: Shes actually an E cup, although its not very visible.
* HyperAwareness: Sion can "overclock her brain" through her techniques and predict probable future outcomes using math and magic.
* MagiBabble
* MagicAIsMagicA
* MeaningfulName: In Japanese, her name is pronounced ''shion''. That's the name of a flower associated with memories. Sion can read and manipulate memories using her Etherlite.
* OddFriendship: With Satsuki and Len -- the "Back Alley Alliance!" Also with Akiha, once she reveals that she has a method to control Shiki.
** Sion tends to have a lot of these. She was also good friends with Riesbyfe Stridberg. Ordinarily, mages and the Church aren't on good terms.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Girl]]: At times. Just... watch Satsuki's ending in ''Actress Again''!
* TheOtherDarrin: Creator/SatomiAkesaka voices her in UnderNightInBirth.
* PeoplePuppets: A use of Etherlite.
* PinballProjectile: Half-Moon-Sion can do this. While it's acceptable that the bullets may ricochet when shooting at the ground if one stretches their suspension of disbelief for a bit, one can only wonder how the bullets ricochet on the top of the screen.
* PurpleEyes
* PsychicLink: Etherlite is also capable of doing this. Sion's family are literally nicknamed "spiritual hackers" because of this.
* RapunzelHair: Although it's braided up most of the time, its quite obvious her hair is really, really long if her winpose is any indication.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: In Vampire Mode.
* ResistTheBeast: Several of V. Sion's pre-fight quotes are pained pleas for the opponent to run away.
* SignificantAnagram: Her family name of 'Eltnam' can be rearranged to form the word 'Mental', which is the school of Alchemy she practices.
* SplitPersonality: A really unique twist on this. She has multiple "rooms of thought" while most people have one, so she thinks of up to at least seven subjects at a time. It's the same personality, but it's thinking about seven different things at once with the same focus.
* SpockSpeak: Goes into this on occasion.
* TheStoic
** NotSoStoic: Shiki you womanizer...
* SuperOCD: The notion that something might be "random" irritates her incredibly.
* TeenGenius
* {{Transplant}}: Bordering on {{expy}}, "Eltnum" appears in ''{{Under Night In Birth}}'' with the same background as Sion.
* {{Tsundere}}: A more subdued example of a Type A, but she shows the associated traits, ''especially'' in her ending for Re-ACT.
* VampireRefugee
* WhipItGood: Her Etherlite in ''MeltyBlood'''s gameplay.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Light Purple Hair]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: Yes! Really! It rivals [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Rin's]].

[[folder:Miyako Arima]]

!!Miyako Arima

!!!Voiced by: Miwa Kouzuki (JP)

--> ''"I don't care for whatever plans you have for humanity, just give Onii-chan back!"''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Miyako_mbaa_5538.png

Miyako is Shiki's much younger sister from the Arima family. She rarely talked with Shiki, so he assumed she didn't like him. In fact, the opposite was true: she loved him very much, but was shy so she couldn't approach him. Instead, she would get embarrassed, tackle him, and then run away. She views the Tohno family as having 'kidnapped' Shiki and goes to 'rescue' him. She has a fascination with Chinese martial arts, and Wallachia increased her fighting ability. She was mentioned briefly in the original Tsukihime and Len was mistaken for her in Kagetsu Tohya, but she did not receive a proper introduction until Melty Blood.

----

* AnimeChineseGirl: She has the clothes and knows martial arts, but she's not actually Chinese.
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: In one of the stranger original arcs in ''MeltyBlood'', the Tatari tried to focus on Miyako's fears. But something was radically different about her "pure heart" and instead of a temporary materialization, the "Influence of the Tatari" gave her [[IKnowMortalKombat Arcade-style KungFu]]. Her first impression of Kohaku was "Mad Scientist/Witch."
* CuteBruiser
* GenkiGirl
* GreenEyes
* HairDecorations
* LittleMissBadass
* SheatheYourSword: Expels Tatari in the ''MeltyBlood'' Act 2 {{Manga}} by getting more upset that Shiki starts to fight back (and hits her lightly) and runs away crying instead of escalating the fight.
* ShoutOut: The style of Kung Fu that she uses is from the ''KingOfFighters'' games which is another indicator of the "fictional" origin of them. Fans have run with this, drawing pictures of her posing with the ''KingOfFighters'' cast.
* TokenMiniMoe: While Len is ReallySevenHundredYearsOld and has significance to the plot, Miyako seems to exist to provide a genuine young girl to the cast.
* UhOhEyes: Averted. Possibly the ''only'' person who doesn't have GlowingEyesOfDoom, except possibly Hisui and Kohaku. Interestingly, she also avoids the Blue/Red paradigm, her eyes are green.
* UnexpectedCharacter: Shiki mentions maybe once in Tsukihime that the Arima family had a little girl, but gave zero details. Then Miyako appears as a full-fledged character with [[IKnowKarate insane fighting abilities]].

[[folder:Red Arcueid]]

!!Red Arcueid (Warcueid)

!!!Voiced by: Creator/RyokaYuzuki (JP)

--> ''"[[EvilLaugh Fufufufufu... AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!]]"''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/RedArchetype_7734.png

Red Arcueid is a hypothetical Arceuid that has given into her blood lust created by Wallachia. However, because Arcueid is such a powerful being, she is limited to one third of her normal power. Red Arcueid is completely bloodthirsty and insane with absolutely no value for life.

----

* AxCrazy
* ColonyDrop: Her Arc Drive drops ''the friggin Moon'' onto her opponent.
* EnemyWithout
* EvilLaugh: Pull off her Last Arc and treat yourself to a magnificent example of this.
* EvilerThanThou: Averted. Red Arc claims Arc is worse than she is.
-->'''Red Arcueid''': You're quite the monster, Arcueid. Compared to you, I'm just a small fry!
* FauxAffablyEvil: When she first runs into other characters, she can seem down right charismatic. Her lack of Aruceid's [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass air-headed qualities]] can be a [[ObviouslyEvil dead-giveaway]] to characters like [[TheHunter Ciel]] who are just ''looking'' for a reason to attack Arcueid.
** And it doesn't take much to get Red Arcueid to snap straight into her [[EvilLaugh crazy]] [[PutTheLaughterInSlaughter laughter]] anyway. Usually the others don't even get to point out that the jig is up after [[TrashTalk she makes fun of them]] and she just starts [[LaughingMad laughing at things she said herself and at them]].
* ForTheEvulz: Rather than go straight to killing Arcueid and cementing her existence, Red Arcueid decides to take her time and mosey across the city, [[DeadlyEuphemism having fun]] and [[{{Troll}} messing with]] whomever she happens across on the way.
* IShallTauntYou: Definitely has some fun with pointing out how lame [[NotSoDifferent she and Arcueid]] think those they don't like are, such as [[KnightTemplar Ciel]].
-->'''Red Arcueid''': [[ImmortalLifeIsCheap Even if I made mincemeat out of your arms and legs, you'd still try to bite my head off!]]
* LargeHam
* [[RedEyesTakeWarning Gold Eyes, Red Schlera, Run For Your Life]]
* [[VillainTeleportation Villain]] FlashStep [[TeleportationSpam Spam]]: She can keep up with someone [[RunOrDie running for their life]] by simply [[SexyWalk walking]] after them like Arcueid, or even running, [[ForTheEvulz if she's so inclined]], but she's extremely fond of this.
** The in-game move itself, when mastered, is extremely impressive to behold. [[MirrorMatch Two skilled Red Arcueids fighting each other]] resembles a fight from DragonballZ.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Neko-Arc]]

!!Cat-Arcueid (Neco-Arc, or just Neco)

!!!Voiced by: Creator/RyokaYuzuki (JP)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Neco-arc_MBAA_1137.png

Neko-Arc was originally nothing more than a chibified Arcueid that would appear to harass Ciel in the Tsukihime hint corner [[HaveANiceDeath Teach Me Ciel-Sensei.]] This trend continued into Kagetsu Tohya, but in Melty Blood she became a fully fledged character. As you can probably guess from her appearance and origins, she is not the most serious character around. In ''Anime/CarnivalPhantasm'', she is the owner and main bartender of the Ahnenerbe Cafe.

----

* BeamSpam: Entirely possible for a player who's got fast-ass thumbs.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Her Last Arc summons ''Nasu himself'' and crushes her opponent with his giant mushroom avatar.
** This is pretty much the entire reason she exists. As mentioned below, she started as Ciel's foil in the "[[HaveANiceDeath Teach Me Ciel-Sensei]]" scenes, which directly addressed the player and had characters commenting on events happening in the game.
* GuestFighter: In [[FateStayNight Fate/tiger colosseum]].
* JokeCharacter
** LethalJokeCharacter: Seriously, you will '''hate''' fighting her.
*** SNKBoss: See above.
* RuleOfCute
* SuperDeformed: Sort of jarring next to the rest of the cast, but hey, it's cute.
* VerbalTic: Occasionyaally combined with IncrediblyLamePun, nyaa.

Similar to Neco-Arc, he is a parody of Nrvnqsr "Nero" Chaos, and possibly Joji Nakata for that matter. He wants to be an actor, but never seems to be able to make it.

----

* CloningBlues: In his secret Story Mode in ''Act Cadenza Ver. B'', he must fight 4 clones of himself as the mid-boss.

[[folder:Mecha Hisui]]

!!Mecha-Hisui

!!!Voiced by: MiyuMatsuki (JP)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mech-hisui_mbaa_7588.png

Mecha Hisui is a robotic version of Hisui created by Kohaku, most likely while under the influence of Wallachia. Her duty seems to be to guard the Tohno Mansion from intruders, of which there are a large amount. It's revealed that Kohaku had built an entire factory that mass produces these units.

----

* {{BFS}}: Big Effing ''Chainsaw'', therefore...
* ChainsawGood
* {{Expy}}: A robotic version of one of the main characters of a fighting game originally released in 2002, that has since recieved [[CapcomSequelStagnation a truckload of updates]]. Now who are we talking about, Mecha-Hisui or [[GuiltyGear Robo-Ky]]?
* InsistentTerminology: Kohaku is addressed by Mecha-Hisui as either 'Doctor' or 'Doctor Kohaku'. (And 'Nee-san'.)
* MagicPoweredPseudoscience: ''What'' exactly Mecha-Hisui is made of isn't quite known but she was created "under the Tatari's Influence." It is highly unlikely that Kohaku, no matter how twistedly smart she is, knows traditional electronics, programming, and robotics to the degree necessary.
** In the pre-battle dialogue with Aoko, Aoko refers to Mecha-Hisui as a magic doll.
* MidBoss
* OverlyLongName: Pleasant Type Latent City Subjugation Weapon Hisui.
* RoboSpeak: Used in general for CallingYourAttacks. Also, will call out: "Nee-san... Nee-san..." if beaten by Kohaku.
* ShoutOut: Mecha Hisui's chainsaw is the Chainsawd weapon from Phantasy Star Online along with her aerial laser bazooka.
* SuperPoweredRobotMeterMaids: Seriously, are missiles, lasers, and a chainsaw really necessary for a "Pleasant Type" robot? Of course, she was designed by Kohaku...
** Don't forget the jetpack.
* TakeOverTheWorld: She (and the other mass produced Mech-Hisuis) try to do this at the end of her arcade mode in ''Act Cadenza''. Whether or not they succeed no one knows.

[[folder:Riesbyfe Stridberg]]

!!Riesbyfe Stridberg

!!!Voiced by: Creator/AkenoWatanabe (JP)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Ries_MBAA_select_9358.png

Riesbyfe was a Church Executor and a close friend of Sion before dying at the hands of the Night of Wallachia in the incident that infected Sion with vampirism. However, Wallachia absorbed her information, also known as her memories and personality. Sion was able to steal this from Wallachia and save the information in 2 of the partitions of her brain and then destroy him using a bullet she created from both Riesbyfe's and her own EmpathicWeapon. Later in the alternate future, Dust of Osiris used her timeline's version of that same information to recreate or copy her as a "Defense System Physical Spirit", which she brought with her back in time. Riesbyfe's playable story arc takes place in the Vampire Sion timeline; although she is present in the "main" Sion timeline as well.

----
* BackFromTheDead: Sort of. In ''Actress Again'' The Dust Of Osiris animated her existence and in Sion's good ending and Satsuki's ending, Sion sets it up so Ries's continued existence is fed by Sion's {{mana}} instead. What TimeParadox?
** Sion had already captured her data from Wallachia. She used a combination of the program Dust of Osiris made and her own.
* {{Bifauxnen}}
* ChurchMilitant
* [[spoiler: DownerEnding: Her playable story ends in one. Having taken place during the Sion TATARI continuity, Riesbyfe is forced to take her down. In the end, Riesbyfe defeats Dust of Osiris, the person who resurrected her. Osiris tells her how she instigated the new TATARI in order to save her. After a heartfelt talk between the two of them, the two die together as TATARI collapses.]]
* {{Expy}}: Her existence is very similar to the Servants of ''FateStayNight''. She's a Defense System Physical Spirit created from the previous Tatari's perfect information of her after Oberon ate her.
** In the manga, she even boasts that she is Sion's Shield; a similar oath to the one that [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Saber]] made.
* FanNickname: Roast Beef Stroganoff/Strudelburger/Stringburger.
* KnightInShiningArmor
* [[spoiler: MindlinkMates: Once Sion downloads her into two partitions of her mind to maintain her existence; they both can hear each other's thoughts and there's even some information bleed, like Riesbyfe using software terms.]]
* NoSell: Riesbyfe doesn't have to obey Dust of Osirus because her special weapon True Apocrypha/"Gamaliel" nullified her commands.
** This also prevented her consciousness from being absorbed by Tatari.
* PhlebotinumRebel: She was animated to protect Dust of Osiris.
* PosthumousCharacter: She was member of the Church and mentioned as a companion of Sion's in the group that was sent to try to stop Tatari, and died trying to buy her time to escape. Sion was extremely close to her, and kept a memento of her at all times. Then she appears in ''Actress Again'', reanimated by the Dust of Osiris.
* PileBunker: ''True Apocrypha'', as befitting a [[WhatCouldHaveBeen planned]] rival of Ciel.
* ShoutOut: In sixth chapter of ''Literature/KaraNoKyoukai'', the headmaster of Reien Girl's Academy is stated to be "Mother Riesbyfe" and mentioned to have a large string instrument case in her office.
* [[spoiler:StakingTheLovedOne: Playing as her in ''Actress Again'' takes place in the Sion Tatari continuity, and she has to put down both V. Sion and The Dust Of Osiris; also Sion.]]
** [[spoiler: TogetherInDeath: "I hope to be able to see you again, friend, after the darkness."]]
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Up until TYPE-MOON created Sion, Riesbyfe was supposedly the main heroine of Melty Blood and would've appeared as Ciel's rival.

!!Shiki Ryougi

!!!Voiced by: Creator/MaayaSakamoto (JP)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Ryogi_Shiki_MBAA_3968.png

--> ''"I see... you're definitely some kind of imitation."'' [said to Shiki Tohno]

Shiki Ryougi from ''Literature/KaraNoKyoukai'' makes a [[GuestFighter special]] [[CrossOver appearance]] in Melty Blood: Actress Again. For a proper writeup, please consult the ''Literature/KaraNoKyoukai'' [[Characters/KaraNoKyoukai characters page]]. Shiki is explicitly stated in Melty Blood to have come from [[AlternateUniverse another universe]], most likely because she and Tohno Shiki do not exist in the same universes. She was apparently brought there by Archetype:Earth, and her story mode ends with the two of them starting to fight.

----

* AlternateUniverse
* CrossOver
* DidNotGetTheGirl: Ryougi Shiki proves to be maybe the only female character to ''not'' be immediately charmed by [[ChickMagnet Tohno Shiki]]. [[spoiler: In fact, she kills a TATARI-made copy of him in a knife fight at the end of her story route. Cue [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend Arcueid's appearance as Archetype:Earth, and she's uncharacteristically out for blood...]]]]
* GuestFighter

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Archetype Earth]]

!!Archetype:Earth

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_archetype_6571.png

Archetype Earth is the original form of Arcueid and the template for the vampires for planet Earth (thus an Archetype, rather than Type like Brunestud and ORT). However, in ''Current Code'', she doesn't actually exist as a separate character despite being playable, merely as Arcueid's personality.

----

* [[spoiler:BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind: Climax of her and Arcueid's plot in Current Code is this; with the winner coexisting with humanity or destroying it.]]
* BlowYouAway: Tornadoes.
* BossInMookClothing: More like BonusBoss in mook clothing. In Current Code, sometimes performing too well during an arcade run (such as scoring a lot of Arc Drive Finishes) causes her to challenge you while [[SNKBoss totting her infamous Eclipse style]], which gives her insane Magic Meter boost and ''0-cost supers''. Losing to her here doesn't end your run, though.
* DishingOutDirt: Including her EX move which can send you right to the other side of the screen if it connects.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: She certainly dresses like a princess. Not to mention that Arcueid herself was called the Princess of True Ancestors.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: In ''Current Code''.
* [[DyingAsYourself KOed As Yourself]]: If she loses a PvP match, she'll revert into Arcueid.
* {{Kuudere}}: see LivingWeapon.
* LightEmUp
* LivingWeapon: Claims to be, but has soft spot for [[OfficialCouple Shiki]] and [[FoeYay Ciel]].
* PillarOfLight: One of her attacks, including her Arc Drive.
* PimpedOutDress: Complete with:
** BattleBallgown
** CombatStilettos
** DetachedSleeves
** ImpossiblyLowNeckline
* RapunzelHair
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Unlike Arcueid, she has no qualm on being destructive.
* ShockAndAwe: One of her energy orb attacks gives of electrocuted animation if it connects, thus hinting this.

!!The Night of Wallachia (Tatari/[[SpellMyNameWithAnS TATARI]]) / [[spoiler:Zepia Eltnam Oberon]]

!!!Voiced by: Creator/YasunoriMasutani (JP)

--> ''"Spin the vermin, reverse the guilt.\\
Reverse the birth, reverse the world.\\
Spin spin spinspinspinSPIN~~~!"''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Wallachia_MBAA_7075.png

The Tatari is one of the more bizarre Dead Apostles out there and the thirteenth Dead Apostle Ancestor. While not particularly powerful on his own, the nature of his existence makes him almost impossible to track down and completely impossible to destroy through normal means. The reason is that in one sense there is no Tatari at all, only a recurring phenomenon on par with a hurricane. It merely appears for a single night every few decades. The name Night of Wallachia comes from one of its earlier manifestations not long after the death of Vlad the Impaler, who was already falsely being thought of as a vampire. Due to the Tatari's nature of manifesting itself as the fears of the populace, it appeared as what Vlad would be if he really were Dracula and slaughtered the village.

Due to her grudge against him for both killing her friend Riesbyfe and partially vampirizing her, Sion has managed to track down where he is next to appear, thus setting in motion the events of Melty Blood. It is said that Tatari will not die until the crimson moon once again appears in the sky, which will not occur for another thousand years.

Although he has a number of fates in the original Melty Blood, canonically the Night of Wallachia ends abruptly when Arcueid channels Crimson Moon Brunestud, announces that even in a thousand years Zepia will not succeed in making his miracle, and pulls the crimson moon from the future to turn him back into his vulnerable vampire form. He is then killed by Sion and Shiki. Despite this, due to the meddling of Aoko and White Len he appears as an avatar of his former self in later Melty Blood games, though he is still dead.
----

* AxeCrazy: ''[[GratuitousEnglish "Katto! katto katto katto kattokattokattokattokatto]]''[[GratuitousEnglish katto]] '''[[GratuitousEnglish KATTO~~~!!!]]'''"
* [[spoiler: BackFromTheDead:]] Subverted, like [[spoiler: the other Tsukihime villains in Melty Blood; it's not really them but an exact copy created by Tatari.]]
* BigBad: In ''Melty Blood''.
* CrypticBackgroundReference: So what the heck is Program No. Six anyway?
* CurseEscapeClause: Only when the Red Moon shines on him will he be mortal. The next Red Moon is in about... 1000 years.
* [[spoiler:DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu:]] [[spoiler: It still took SummonBiggerFish.]]
* {{Dracula}}: The game does in fact point out that Vlad Tepes was a mortal; but one of the first massacres that the Tatari did in the past was a town in the Romanian province of Wallachia that feared the legend of the Son of the Dragon.
** Amusingly the real Vlad Tepes appears as a Servant in ''VideoGame/FateEXTRA'' and another interpretation in ''LightNovel/FateApocrypha''; one wonders what would happen if the they encountered each other.
* EnemyWithout: He does not have a true form, he simply takes form according to the dominant fears and rumors in his "hunting grounds".
** The fact that he does this is the reason for [[spoiler:Red (Bousou/Berserk) Arcueid, stabby-mode Nanaya Shiki, Mecha Hisui, Magical Amber Kohaku, and possibly also Vermillion (Kurenai Seki Shuu) Akiha]] existing.
* EvilLaugh: Both evil and maniacal.
** Don't forget the demented giggling.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: AND HOW! "Mawase mawase mawase mawase mawasemawasemawase''mawasemawasemawase'' '''MAWASE'''~~~!"
* EyesAlwaysShut: Because he drinks so much blood it [[TearsOfBlood leaks from his blood filled eyes]] when he opens them.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Played by Creator/YasunoriMasutani, who also plays Raphael in the SoulSeries.
** And hilariously ''Trevor Belmont'' in ''Castlevania: Curse of Darkness''.
* JackassGenie: Hey, he just materializes as people's wishes. If people want a bumper crop, dead bodies for fertilizer. People want to be friends? Running in terror from him before they die is a great way to connect. People want the favor of their god? He'll become their god and favor them when they die for him. Really, he interprets every single wish as demand for a bloodthirsty rampage.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily
* NotSoDifferent: According to his warped logic, this is why he [[spoiler: made Sion into a vampire]].
* NighInvulnerable: It takes something really special that Shiki can't just hit his Death Spot and kill him.
** That may be a technical point. [[spoiler:Shiki's power doesn't work on imaginary/weirdly-existing beings, hence Nasu's clarification that he wouldn't be able to kill a Servant (therefore proving that the famous crossover doujin is on crack and then some... sigh). He's literally described as a phenomenon, so killing him would be like killing a storm, or an earthquake... Maybe. ...Goddamn it Nasu!]]
** To clarify, Shiki cannot kill beings outside of the Gaian cycle of life, as he himself is one of those beings. It's the reason why he can see death spots on living beings but lines on inorganic beings. It's easiest for him to comprehend death in beings most similar to himself, although he can still see death for anything under Gaian reality. [=TYPEs=] (the ultimate beings of each planet), beings like TATARI, and assumedly Servants, have a different concept of absolute death (Servants can die, but since they're stored in the Throne of Heroes, unless he can kill the record itself, Shiki can't "kill" them).
* PassingTheTorch: Villainous version. [[spoiler: He wants Sion to be his successor.]]
* RealityWarper: Through his Reality Marble, he can manifest people's fears in the physical world.
* [[spoiler:StartOfDarkness]]: [[spoiler:See WellIntentionedExtremist below.]]
* TearsOfBlood: Mixed with SlasherSmile, both dripping blood.
** You get a full screen of this when you pull off his super damn magnum epic attack in MeltyBlood. You will fail to not scream. TRUST ME.
* [[spoiler:WellIntentionedExtremist]]: His final speech to Sion reveals that, [[spoiler:after tracing out countless hopeless scenarios of humanity's self-destruction, he became the Tatari in hopes of eventually creating a variable that could alter the future.]]

* SiblingYinYang: Not exactly siblings. But, White Len literally is the yang to Len's yin.
* SNKBoss: The reason she was unplayable before Ver. B of ''Act Cadenza''.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: Sort of, see {{Expy}} above.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Much like Len, she's very fond of sweets. Especially cakes.
* {{Tsundere}}: Fans joke that she's the ''tsun'' to Len's ''dere''. She is {{Tsundere}} for Nanaya in her story mode in ''Actress Again''. The ''All-Around TYPE-MOON'' Drama CD has her being called as such by the Nekos.

!!The Dust of Osiris

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/180px-DustOfOsirisMBAA_2221.png

The Dust of Osiris is the BigBad and FinalBoss of ''Actress Again''. She is the TATARI of a possible future created from Sion's blood that was sucked by Wallachia. [[ForWantOfANail It is effectively Sion as she would have been had she never been bitten by Wallachia or met Shiki]] and is a WellIntentionedExtremist. When Arcueid pulled the Crimson Moon from a thousand years in the future to defeat Wallachia, the Dust of Osiris was able to follow it. Having decided that humanity could not be saved, she hoped to utilize the Philsopher's Stone, as well as a distorted space caused by the Crimson Moon's TimeTravel to KillAllHumans and [[FlingALightIntoTheFuture leave behind a record of their existence]], at least giving the lives of humanity significance. In all endings where she is fought she is defeated and vanishes, except V. Sion's where V. Sion absorbs her power.

* BeamSpam: One of her strongest attacks.
* BigBad: in ''Melty Blood: Actress Again''
* EnemyWithout
* [[spoiler: FlingALightIntoTheFuture:]] [[spoiler: [[KillAllHumans After killing everyone first.]]]]
* ForWantOfANail: See FutureBadass below.
* FutureBadass: [[spoiler: She's a future version of Sion. Sort of. When Night of Wallachia drank Sion's blood, it hadn't fully "converted" it yet because it only existed for a few hours of a few days at a time every 30 years, plus he had stopped being a physical vampire. When Oberon's personality was destroyed, the non-vampiric blood took over the Tatari's magic. [[ForWantOfANail It essentially acts as Sion would have acted had she not been attacked by Wallachia, not met Shiki, and stayed with Atlas.]]]]
* [[spoiler: KillAllHumans:]] [[spoiler: Since she finds humanity will destroy itself anyway, the Dust of Osiris decides the [[MurderIsTheBestSolution best solution]] is to speed it up and [[FlingALightIntoTheFuture leave behind an eternal record of their existence and history]]]].
* HumongousMecha: Well, it sure does seem she's riding one...
* [[spoiler: MurderIsTheBestSolution:]] [[spoiler: More like since humanity is going to die anyway, might as well make something constructive from it]].
* SNKBoss: Picture a faster, more unpredictable [[VideoGame/XMenVsStreetFighter Apocalypse]] and you've probably got it...
* TimeTravel: She's from the alternate? future that [[spoiler: Arceuid pulled the Red Moon from to make the first Tatari mortal.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist
