Characters from ''VideoGame/PhantomBrave''.
! Marona
-> Voiced by: Creator/KaoriMizuhashi (JP), Creator/SandyFox (EN)

Primary main character. Marona is a young girl who lives on an island by herself in Ivoire. She is a Chroma, a character with strange magical powers (hers allow her to talk to spirits, and bring them to life by possessing inanimate objects). Because of this, she is feared (and very often discriminated against) [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer by everyone on the mainland]].

* AllLovingHero: Marona is unfailingly kind and compassionate to the people she meets, [[TheWoobie her kindness is not repaid]].
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer
* ApologeticAttacker: as evident in Another Marona side-story, which really fits her NiceGirl and TechnicalPacifist personality.
-->'''Ash''' (after Sulphur's phantoms appearing over the possessed humans): I've seen them before!
-->'''Marona''': Do you know them? [[ComicallyMissingthePoint I'm so sorry I hurt your friends]].
-->'''Ash''': [[DeadpanSnarker Marona, do they look like they're my friends?]]
* ArmyOfTheDead
* ACupAngst: [[spoiler:A more subtle example, she does get pissed off when Myao states that she's flat-chested. Cue OutOfCharacterMoment]].
* BadPowersGoodPeople
* BrokenBird / BreakTheCutie: she did almost have signs of this, but her [[{{Pollyanna}} cheerful optimism still puts her together]].
* ChronicHeroSyndrome
* ColorfulThemeNaming: Her name in the Japanese version, ''Marrone'', is Italian for "Maroon". It also doubles as a MeaningfulName as Maroon can refer to being left alone.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* [[spoiler:DeadAllAlong: In "Another Marona".]]
* EasilyForgiven: InvertedTrope. She is one of the most forgiving characters, even after dealing with [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer everyone treating her as shit]].
* {{Expy}}: Of [[VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness Flonne]] in some sense. NiceGirl and [[{{ThePollyanna}} cheerful optimistic personality]]? Checked. [[{{Moe}} Cuteness appeal]] [[TastesLikeDiabetes that put people into squeegasms]]? Checked. [[TheMedic Magic-based healing character]]? Checked. [[spoiler:{{Out Of Character Moment}}s when being called flat-chested? Checked.]] [[Creator/SandyFox Having the same English voice actor who is typecast into these kinds of characters]]? Checkmate.
* HandBehindHead: When embarrassed.
* HeroWithBadPublicity: Her phantom powers have caused people to label her as "The Possessed" and either avoid her at best or outright demean at worst. It takes the forging of several friendships along the way for this to eventually erode.
* KidHero
* TheHeart
* IdiotHair: two of them to be exact, fitting into her [[{{ThePollyanna}} cheerful personality]].
* ISeeDeadPeople: Also, she can temporarily give them corporeal form.
* InsaneForgiveness: Marona will ''always'' forgive people, [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer even if everyone is treating her as trash]].
* InstantFanclub: Marona gains one after [[spoiler: winning Cauldron's respect]].
* MoralityPet: served this role with Carona in the Another Marona storyline.
* {{Necromancer}}
* NiceGirl: Sweet, selfless, and kindhearted loli who treats everyone with kindness. This trope played with in {{Tearjerker}}ing levels because of [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer the way people treated her]].
* ThePollyanna: She's a strong optimistic point of view that one day, people will treat her with kindness in return.
* PowersViaPossession
** FridgeBrilliance here; in later games she has Psycho Burgundy and Meteo Helianthus. She can get the ability herself ingame via absorbing Sienna's Soul Saber and Raphael's Heliotrope.
* RedBaron: [[spoiler: After defeating Sulfur, people start calling her [[TitleDrop the Phantom Brave]].]]
* [[RedOniBlueOni Red Oni]]: to Ash's and Carona's blue.
* SquishyWizard: statistically wise, she's have good magic ability, her physical attacks and health growth is very terrible. Subverted that it is possible to make her a powerhouse with proper item customization.
* SurvivalMantra: "One day...everyone will come to like you," if you treat them with kindness. [[spoiler:Apparently, she's right]].
* {{Tareme Eyes}}
* TechnicalPacifist: she ''really'' hates violence, but is willing to summon phantoms to kick your ass if she needs to protect the people she cares about [[spoiler: or if you call her flat-chested]].
* TenderTears: Prone to breaking down crying easily.
* TokenMiniMoe
* WhiteMagicianGirl: Her [[MagicStaff weapon of choice]] and stats make her an excellent healer, and her personality fits, but you can make her a BlackMage, instead.
* WideEyedIdealist: [[spoiler:the idealism favored her at the end]].
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Green hair.
* ZettaiRyouiki

! Ash
-> Voiced by: Creator/HiroShimono (JP), Creator/LexLang (EN)

Secondary main character. Ash is Marona's spiritual guardian and one of her closest friends. Before his death, he used to fight alongside Marona's parents as a Chroma. He can occasionally move in and out of his intangible state whenever he needs to talk to someone.

* BigBrotherInstinct
* CatchPhrase / InTheNameOfTheMoon: "You'll go no further! For her sake, I will not fail!" The original Japanese version is roughly translated as "Give me the strength to vanquish evil! The power of the Water Dragon, Eccarlate!"
* DeadpanSnarker: Usually when Marona is being a little silly or naive.
* DeadToBeginWith
* {{Expy}}: To Laharl in some degree. Their trademark weapon is a sword (which is subverted [[ImprobableWeaponUser judging by the gameplay mechanics]]), they wear a badass scarf, both [[DeadpanSnarker make certain snarky and sarcastic comments at times]], and similar hair styles. Series artist Takehito Harada is well aware of this as one of the promotional illustrations shows Ash with his arms folded with antenna hair and a perpetual frown.
* FacePalm
* HeroesPreferSwords: He can use any weapon, but swords are weapons he can level up fastest with.
* IdiotHair
* IntangibleMan
* LightningBruiser: Ash's special ability allows him to take action right after being summoned, and on his last turn (and ''only'' his last turn), his attack power is doubled.
* MakingASplash: In his Disgaea appearences, his exclusive attacks are water based.
* NiceGuy
* RedIsHeroic: His scarf.
* ScarfOfAsskicking
* TooManyBelts: One in each arm and foot.
* YouShallNotPass: His declaration before battle.

! Walnut[[spoiler:/Faded]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/KosukeToriumi (JP), SteveBlum (EN; VicMignogna in the remake's "Another Marona" bonus story)

Walnut is a bounty hunter. He possesses the powers of a Chroma, but is employed as a Chroma Oxide, one who steals the bounties of other Chromas by either defeating the monster assigned to them, or defeating the Chroma outright. [[spoiler:He appears again in ''VideoGame/SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'' under the name Endorph.]]

* TheAlcoholic: If he's not out on a job, expect him to be taking shots at the local bar.
* BountyHunter
* EnemyMine: [[spoiler:Teamed up with Ash and Marona against Sulphur's minions briefly to save his little sister, Castile]].
* JerkAss[[spoiler:[=/=]JerkWithAHeartOfGold]]
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice: At the end of the game to stop Sulphur]]
* KillSteal: Part of his job description.
* IneffectualLoner: He never had any friends as a child and that hadn't changed as he got older. The only friend he had is Persimmon, who gives him the latest news along with job offers. Also, [[spoiler: pissing off Cauldron didn't made things any better for him]].
* [[spoiler:NotQuiteDead: See ''VideoGame/SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'']]
* OneManArmy[=/=]LightningBruiser: The gameplay style of Walnut (due to his high strength and HP growth). To elaborate, when you first meet him, he is capable of taking out most of Sulphur's minions ''all by himself.'' You also meet him again [[EnemyMine as an ally]] fighting against Sulphur's minions [[spoiler:when saving Castile]]. Though being said, it's more appropriate to [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential kill him off during battle and take all the kills by yourself]]. It also fits his loner personality as well.
* ParentalAbandonment [[spoiler:Originally an orphan named Faded, but left his adoptive family so that he wouldn't burden them.]]
* PlayingWithFire: His Psycho Burgundy attack lights his ''soul'' on fire.
* TheRival: To Marona and Ash
* TheSocialDarwinist: Believes wholeheartedly in this and even gloats about it when Marona is turned away by her client.
* TooManyBelts

! Castile
-> Voiced by: Creator/LaraJillMiller (EN)

Castile is a young girl who lives on the mainland. She is very ill and unable to walk, but she helps ease her pain by writing letters. Through this, she becomes Marona's first human friend. [[spoiler:She is also Walnut's younger sister, and the money he makes from his work is mainly being funded to find a cure for her illness.]]

* [[spoiler: BadassAdorable: Her ''VideoGame/MakaiKingdom'' appearance]]
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: Her room is filled with them.
* HiddenBuxom: Not so apparent because of her nightgown. Her outfit in ''VideoGame/MakaiKingdom'' brings it out a little more.
* IllGirl : For most of the story. By the ending she's up and able to walk again. [[spoiler: This leads into her cameo in ''VideoGame/MakaiKingdom'' and may possibly show her training with Marona in We Meet Again.]]
* LittlestCancerPatient
* [[spoiler: PlayingWithFire: like her brother, she has the Psycho Burgundy ability.]]
* RapunzelHair
* WhoWearsShortShorts: In her cameo in ''VideoGame/{{Makai Kingdom}}'' and PSP version of ''VideoGame/{{Phantom Brave}}''.

! Sprout
-> Voiced By: David Lodge (EN)
An 85 year old man whose family was slain by Sulphur's hand many years before the game's main storyline. He has sworn to kill Sulphur and avenge his family, and has turned to the use of dark powers in order to achieve his revenge, despite once being the wielder of a holy sword. He is the former mentor of Raphael, and one of the warriors known as the 9 Swords of Ivoire, and is considered by most in the world to be the strongest. His signature technique is the power Dark Eboreus.

* AntiHero (Type IV)
** UnscrupulousHero
* {{BFS}}
* BadassGrandpa: Literally, he was a grandfather before Sulphur killed his family.
** BadassBeard
* [[spoiler: BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu: Defeats Sulphur when he's manifesting, but the amount of hate he has leads to Sulphur surviving by possessing him. He kills himself in attempt to stop him, but Sulphur still survives.]]
* CrusadingWidower
* DarkIsNotEvil
* DumbMuscle: When he's not seeking revenge on Sulphur, he shows signs of this. Especially apparent in ''Another Marona''.
* [[spoiler: DemonicPossession]]
* FallenHero
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice/ DeathEqualsRedemption]]: [[spoiler:...I am Sprout, master of the Sacred Sword. In death, I have reclaimed my honor.]]
* HeWhoFightsMonsters
* MightyGlacier
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* {{Revenge}}: His goal in his life is revenge against Sulphur for the death of his family. So much so that [[spoiler:Sulphur manages ''[[DemonicPossession to take control of his body]]'' and feeding on his hatred before Sprout performs his HeroicSacrifice]].
* WorldsStrongestMan: Is recognized as the strongest of the 9 Swords of Ivoire [[spoiler: and next to Sulphur, he's the strongest enemy in the story mode.]]

-> Voiced By: Creator/CrispinFreeman (EN; Creator/PatrickSeitz in "Another Marona" story)
One of the Nine Swords and leader of the White Wolf Army and the wielder of the Heliotrope blade. [[spoiler:He was impersonated by Bijou, one of the local [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolves]] in Ivoire through Sulphur's DemonicPossession, terrorizing the local islands. Luckily, Marona and Ash has dealt with the impersonater, ''twice'' (second time with Raphael's help.]]

* {{Badass}}
* {{Bishonen}}
* [[spoiler: DemonicPossession: briefly]]
* GradualRegeneration/ LightningBruiser: gameplay wise, he's basically an improved version of the Knight class, which has the ability to regenerate health overtime.
* HeroesPreferSwords: Heliotrope
* HopelessBossFight: when you first battle him at Island of Evil, you're not suppose to win in the fight against him. However, with "failure" dungeons, it is possible to beat him when you first meet as well as getting is his sword up to ''three'' times.
* InstantFanclub: It is revealed in "Another Marona" story that he has a large dedicated fanclub to him. Luckily, the Raphael in Carona's world wasn't aware of this is well.
* KnightInShiningArmor
* LightIsGood
* LongHairedPrettyboy
* TheOtherDarrin: Like Walnut, Raphael is voiced by a different person in "Another Marona" story due to [[UsefulNotes/UnionsinHollywood union issues]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: He was around the time of Sulphur's chaotic destruction 30 years ago, yet he doesn't any older than 50 years old. This is [[LampshadeHanging mentioned]] by Marona during the "Another Story" arch.

!Sienna [[spoiler:Scarlet the Brave]]
-> Voiced by: MaryElizabethMcGlynn (EN)
Owner of the Bottlemail Industry in Clutter Haven along with her scrabbit colleague, Murasaki. Marona pays her rent on Phantom Isle [[spoiler: before she decided to give Marona full ownership of the island]]. [[spoiler: She's actually the legendary Scarlet the Brave, a Brave who have defeated Sulphur 30 years ago, but injured her leg then. Because of this, she established a new identity as Sienna and ran the Bottlemail Industry to get information across Ivoire.]]

* [[spoiler:{{Badass}}[=/=]HandicappedBadass]]
* [[spoiler: CassandraTruth: She tried to rally some of the island elders to fight against Sulphur and with Marona's plan, but they scoff it off because they are expecting Scarlet the Brave to be a strong man and not a woman with a broken leg]].
* [[spoiler:HiddenPurposeTest/ SecretTestOfCharacter: Highly implied. When Marona accumulated enough bordeaux to buy Phantom Isle from Sienna, she declined the money offer and instead sent her to the Isle of Evil to retrieve the Rainbow Bird (along with the Fighting Ravens). At the end of the episode, it was revealed that Sienna actually owned the Rainbow Bird ''from the beginning'' and she intentionally set it free so she can learn more about Marona as a person (the Rainbow Bird escaping was most likely the reason for Sienna to give Marona full ownership of Phantom Isle, as she expected her to release the Rainbow Bird or give it to someone else rather than giving the bird directly to her. And besides, the bird escaped from its cage because Marona, being the [[NiceGirl nicest girl in Ivoire]], decided to give up the ownership of the Rainbow Bird to Walnut after beating his ass along with reviving him, feeling that Walnut deserves the bird for a certain reason).]]
* [[spoiler: InterspeciesRomance: With an Owlman, who was killed by Sulphur. His death caused Sienna to (nearly) [[StartofDarkness seek the path of darkness]] similar to Sprout. Fortunately enough, Marona and Ash was sent back to time and prevent her from doing that, thus creating StableTimeLoop. Oh yeah, the owlman's spirit thanked Marona and Ash for getting her out of the path to darkness]].
* [[spoiler: LadyOfWar]]: With an [[PigeonholedVoiceActor English]] [[MaryElizabethMcGlynn voice actor]] to fit appropriately here.
* [[NiceGirl Nice Woman]]: In fact, she is one of the few adults in the game that didn't discriminate Marona for [[ISeeDeadPeople her ability]].
* [[spoiler: PlayingWithFire: She has the Psycho Burgundy ability]]
* ProperLady
* PimpedOutDress
* [[spoiler:[[SamusIsaGirl Scarlet The Brave is a girl]]!]]
* {{Tomboy}}: [[spoiler:"I'm used to be quite the tomboy, but I'm hardly a man"]].

The Lord of Terror. An evil entity that appeared from another world that rampaged across Ivior before he was defeated by Scarlet the Brave, but he survived and his returning. The closer he comes, the more monsters appear, before he finally returns.

* BigBad
* DarkIsEvil
* DiablosExNihilo: Nobody in the game seems to have any idea where he came from or exactly what he is.
* TheDreaded: Everybody is terrified of him, and most assume his arrival means the end of everything.
* EldritchAbomination
* [[spoiler: EmotionEater: Survives a defeat from Sprout by possessing him through his hate.]]
* FinalBoss
* FlatCharacter
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: He's an EldritchAbomination that wrecks havoc, has no characterization, and doesn't even talk save for one moment where he *barely* utters Scarlet's name. There, his voice echoes and has a sound tinged with metal.
* TheVoiceless: Mostly, anyway. Only thing he ever says is the name of the person who defeated him.

[[caption-width-right:171:Carona without her cape]]
Introduced in "Another Marona", Carona is Marona from another dimension [[spoiler: where Ash was never revived as a phantom. As a result, she was exposed to the full hatred of Ivoire and was forced to take care of herself as a Chroma Oxide. She was sent by God Eryngi to help Marona and the other heroes to fight against Sulphur within 10 days. In reality, she was trying free her world from the clutches of God Eryngi, who is really the Merchant of Death.]]

* [[AlternateUniverseReedRichardsIsAwesome Alternative Dimension Marona is Awesome]]: Marona is a [[ThePollyanna cheerful]], [[{{Moe}} adorable]], [[NiceGirl kind-hearted]], [[WideEyedIdealist idealistic]] SquishyWizard [[TheMedic healer]] [[TokenMiniMoe loli]]. Carona is a DeadpanSnarker, [[GrumpyBear cynical]], BadassAdorable CombatMedic loli who is capable of [[OneManArmy wiping every foe around her]], ''including the Nine Swords''. In addition, once you get her phantom after beating the Another Marona storyline, she is statistically a better version of Marona. Not only that, you can summon Carona's phantom into battle and then use ''her'' to confine other phantoms. This is useful in many Dungeon runs where Marona starts off in a level where she cannot physically reach the area.
* AgeInappropriateDress[=/=]{{Stripperiffic}}
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: [[spoiler: Her situation is '''''much worse''''' than Marona.]]
* ApologeticAttacker: In the ([[GameplayandStorySegregation supposedly]]) HopelessBossFight when you first meet her.
* {{Antihero}}: Type III with some degree of Type IV.
** PragmaticHero-UnscrupulousHero
* BadassAdorable
* [[RedOniBlueOni Blue Oni]]: To Marona's red
* BreakTheCutie[=/=]CorruptTheCutie: [[spoiler: due to her not having the miracles that Marona had. But more importantly, Ash's revival as a phantom]].
* CombatMedic
* TheCynic
* DarkerAndEdgier: Of Marona
* [[spoiler:DarkIsNotEvil]]
* DarkMagicalGirl
* [[DoNotCallMePaul Don't Call Me Marona]]: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], to avoid confusion between herself and the other Marona.
* [[DeadpanSnarker Deadpan Loli]]
* DubNameChange: Her name in Japan is Kurone[[note]]''Kuro'' is ''black'' in Japanese, further placing her as the "Dark" Marona.[[/note]]. Because Marrone became Marona in the U.S., Kurone had to go through a similar name change.
* DullEyesOfUnhappiness
* TheEeyore
* GoodIsNotNice
* [[GrumpyBear Grumpy Loli]]
* HadesShaded
* HatesEveryoneEqually
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn: Subverted, she was actually ''trying to save her world from the start'', just was forced to be a slave of God Eryngi to prevent him from killing everyone in her world]].
* [[spoiler: IneffectualLoner]]
* ISeeDeadPeople
* KillSteal: She is a Chroma Oxide, but according to [[WordOfGod Carona]], she only steal Chroma rewards from "bad people" like Walnut.
* LittleMissBadass
* LittleMissSnarker
* [[spoiler:[[LoveRedeems The Power of Friendship Redeems]]]]
* [[spoiler:MoralityChain: Not a straightforward example, but taking Ash away from her makes her exposed to the full raw hatred towards her and made her a ''very'' bitter girl]].
* {{Necromancer}}
* NotSoDifferent: She is often compared to Marona (well they are both Maronas, [[spoiler:except she doesn't have Ash around,]] and faced discrimination from everyone in their worlds) and Walnut (both Chroma Oxides [[spoiler: and [[IneffectualLoner IneffectualLoners]])]].
* NotSoStoic: She has a cynical, sullen, and bitter personality and is often calm most of the time, [[spoiler:but she did broke down when Eryngi threatened to summon Sulphur into her world and kill everyone there with the Magenta Core. While Eryngi tried to reason with her on saving the world [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer where everyone hated her]]. She decided to turn against Eryngi because she finally realizes that [[YouAreNotAlone she isn't alone]]]].
* OneManArmy: [[spoiler:Since she was raised in a world without Ash around,]] it is safe to assume something like that. Though an interesting subversion is on maps where you actually fight her, you also have to fight other groups of monsters along with her.
* PayEvilUntoEvil: The reason why [[spoiler: she made Raphael, Sprout, Walnut, and the Raven Captains fight against their own bodies confined with Sulphur's minions]].
* [[spoiler:[[SaveThisPersonSaveTheWorld Save Marona, Save Your World]]]]
* ShortHairWithTail
* {{Stripperific}}: Plays this very straight without the cape as seen above.
* TechnicalPacifist: Like Marona, she is "not a big fan into violence."
* TrainingFromHell: Forced Marona and the heroes into this.
* WillfullyWeak: [[spoiler:She was using her advanced Confine on Marona the whole time]].
* WiseBeyondTheirYears
* YouAreNotAlone: The reason why Carona [[spoiler:turned against God Eryngi at the end]].
