[[quoteright:283:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vyse01_9063.jpg]]
::'''Vyse'''

->''"One day, I shall see what lies beyond the clouds, the so-called limits of the world."''

TheProtagonist of ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'', Vyse is a young, idealistic air pirate who dreams of sailing beyond the sunset. He fights with a pair of cutlasses. [[spoiler:In the epilogue, he, Aika, and Fina continue to sail the skies.]]

* AccidentalPervert: If you examine the SchmuckBait yellow hankie on Aika's wall right when you get to Pirate Isle. Ouch.
* BoldExplorer: Much of the game centers on his quest to explore all the lands of Arcadia, which is recorded in his [[CaptainsLog journal entries.]] There's even a {{sidequest}} to find all 88 hidden discoveries. Vyse lampshades it, near the beginning of the game, while he [[ChildhoodFriend Aika]], and [[MysteriousWaif Fina]] are watching the sunset on Pirate Isle:
-->'''Vyse: (wistfully)''' "I want to see what's out there... to see what lies beyond the sunset."
* TheCaptain: Of the [[CoolAirship Delphinus]], the coolest CoolAirship in the game.
* CaptainsLog: Vyse's journal, which can be accessed through the menu.
* ChickMagnet
** EvenTheGuysWantHim: Daikokuya becomes smitten with his 'strength' and asks Vyse to 'warm him up'. Vyse's response is to promptly declare an emergency evacuation.
* DetachedSleeves
* {{Determinator}}: He's not an IdiotHero. He knows that there's a fine line between "daring" and plain foolishness, and he never undertakes a challenge without putting a plan together first.
** Evil empire holding friends and family hostage? "It won't be easy, but it's not impossible!... We'll get them back, somehow."
** Impenetrable fortress that no one has ever been able to escape from? "[[BadassBoast Ha! No one's ever escaped before because]] ''[[BadassBoast I've]]'' [[BadassBoast never tried!]] I love a challenge!"
** Rampaging 4-headed giant with death beams? "Maybe we can do something about that thing with the [[CoolShip Little Jack]]!"
** Stranded on a deserted island? "Might as well think of this as some sort of vacation. Meanwhile, time to start fixing my busted lifeboat."
** Home base burned to the ground? "Hey, we were always talking about how we wanted to redecorate."
* DualWielding: Though outside of S-Moves, he only actually uses one sword to attack. He uses the smaller, secondary one for blocking.
* EyepatchOfPower: His goggles are actually in the form of this.
* {{Expy}}: Of CaptainHarlock.
* GogglesDoSomethingUnusual: It's a zoom lens. And it detects moonfish.
** GogglesDoNothing: Except in battle. There is a code to remove them. [[spoiler: Right, right, left, left, up, down, up, down, right, left.]]
* GondorCallsForAid: [[spoiler:Although he didn't so much call for it as everybody showed up and said "hey, we heard you were gonna take on Galcian's flagship, need help? We wanna join the fun."]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Under his left eye [[spoiler:Courtesy of Piastol]]; Vyse barely remembers how he got it.
** [[spoiler: DivingSave: The thrown knife had been aimed at Aika. Vyse shoved her out of the way at the last second and the knife grazed his face, giving him the scar.]]
* TheHero: Naturally.
* [[spoiler:HeroicBSOD: A ''very'' minor one near the end of the story. Galcian is set to take over the world, with an entire armada at his beck and call, an Atlantis-like continent as his fortress, said fortress protected by an shild (which the heroes have already tried, and failed, to breach), and an ancient superweapon that he has already used to wipe out Valua (and could easily do so to the rest of the world). While Vyse isn't keen on giving up, he's also realistic enough to know that he and his crew don't stand a chance aginst odds like that (at least without help, see GondorCallsForAid). It's the only time in the game that we see him at a loss for a course of action.]]
* HeroesLoveDogs: If you recruit Pow, he continues to sail with Vyse long after the story's over.
* JumpedAtTheCall
* JustLikeRobinHood
* TheKirk
* LovableRogue
* TheParagon: Should be the poster boy for this trope since he convinces the entire world to stand against Valua.
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Averted at the beginning where he and his father's crew attack Alfonso and steal his goods. He's busy with Fina's quest for the rest of the game but the player can still attack black pirate or military ships.
* PlayingWithFire: He learns red (fire) spells faster than the other 5 elements.
** ShockAndAwe: His specials are mostly electricity-based, though.
* RedBaron: Swashbuckler ranks, culminating in Vyse the Legend.
* ReverseGrip: Kind of a variant, he holds his blocking sword by the cross-guard with the blade "covering" his forearm. With his main weapon he tends to switch back and forth between regular and reverse grip for different attacks.
* RummageSaleReject: [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by the Yafutomans.
* ShroudedInMyth: At higher Swashbuckler ratings, the rumors of Vyse's exploits get pretty wild.
* SmallStepsHero: He will never sacrifice a life. Either he saves everyone or he dies trying.
* SwordBeam: When attacking from a distance.
** RazorWind
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: He was considered for [[SEGASuperstars SEGA-All Stars Racing]] but didn't end up making the final cut. He made the cut for the sequel, causing many fans to start throwing wallets at SEGA.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: An NPC lampshades this if you keep picking the right Swashbuckler options.

::''The Delphinus''

A SuperPrototype of a new class of airship designed by Admiral De Loco and the Valuan Armada, equipped with the most powerful cannons, armor plating, and a Moonstone Cannon. [[spoiler:It was created to be the personal ship of Prince Enrique, as well as the new Flagship of the Armada. He gives the ship to Vyse when he joins TheTeam.]]

* CoolAirship: How awesome is this ship? [[spoiler: It's the only ship that manages to ''kill'' a Gigas; not once, but '''Three''' times!!]]
* GrandTheftPrototype: Vyse gained possession of the ship in a rather ''[[Awesome/SkiesOfArcadia Spectacular]]'' act of piracy.
* GlobalAirship: Once fully upgraded, it's the only fully global GlobalAirship.
* LightningBruiser: Tough, fast, and surprisingly nimble for it's size.
* SuperPrototype: The first of the planned Delphinus-class battleships. Not only is it a "proof-of-concept" model that incorporates the latest advances in Valuan tech, it's also an ''AceCustom'' [[spoiler: that was intended to be the flagship of the armada]]. Valua spared no expense to ensure that it was the most powerful ship in their fleet, and boy did they succeed. To bad for them that it wound up in Vyse's hands.
* UnfinishedUntestedUsedAnyway: Kinda. Construction wasn't ''quite'' finished when Vyse takes off with it, and requires some fine-tunning by Brabham.
* WaveMotionGun: "Moonstone Cannon... '''FIRE'''!"
* [[spoiler: WhatHappenedToTheMouse: At the end of the game, the main trio are seen sailing off on a ship that resembles the Albatross, without an explanation as to what became of the Delphinus. The leading fan theory is that Vyse simply leaves it docked at Crescent Island for safekeeping).]]
** If you speak to Enrique while on board the ''Delphinus'', he mentions that he's going to take the ship back after everything is over. As Vyse earlier mentions that he prefers old-school sailing, he likely gave it gladly.

[[quoteright:299:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/art-02aika_7040.jpg]]
::'''Aika'''

->''"Friends and treasures, which shall I take? Why both, of course!"''

Vyse's childhood friend, who lost her parents when she was little. A tomboyish air pirate who loves treasure almost as much as she loves her friends, but she can't swim and is terrified of ghosts. She moves quickly and fights with a large boomerang. [[spoiler:In the epilogue, she, Vyse, and Fina continue to sail the skies.]]

* ActionGirl
* CombatMedic: She's a good offensive character, and learns green magic, which is primarily healing spells, the fastest.
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan
* CrutchCharacter: Big time. In the early stages of the game "Alpha Storm" will be your go-to attack for dealing with multiple enemies at once. Then, once she has "Lambda Burst", she'll clear out entire screens on her own (or leave the enemy severely weakened). But it's ultimately Aika's "Delta Shield"[[note]]which blocks all enemy magic and automatically allows Aika to take her turn first, regardless of the enemy's speed stat[[/note]] that'll save your party during boss battles; particularly during [[SNKBoss bounty missions.]]
* FashionableAsymmetry: Her single glove, though it arguably makes sense considering her weapon.
* FieryRedhead
* FragileSpeedster
* GenkiGirl
* GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger: On the American Dreamcast box art.
* GogglesDoNothing
* ImagineSpot: Has, shall we say, a ''vivid'' imagination when it comes to foreign cultures. In summary, she predicts the desert heat will immolate Vyse instantly; that she will be eaten by monsters in the jungle; that she will be eaten by ''fish-people'' in Yafutoma; and that the arctic cold [[BookEnds will cause Vyse to freeze instantly]].
** Well, the jungle one actually had the three happily stuffing their faces with fruit. Vyse, just to be cheeky, added to bit about the hungry monsters.
* ItsAllMyFault: She hasn't forgotten the incident 10 years ago, when [[spoiler: she boarded a ship without her weapons, since it was suppose to have been a rescue mission. Aika was caught off-guard by [[BonusBoss Piastol]], who assumed the Blue Rogues were the ones who attacked her father's ship. She responded by attempting to kill Aika with one one of her daggers, but Vyse threw himself in between them, resulting in the scar under his left eye]]. Though Vyse doesn't hold her responsible, Aika has never forgiven herself for it.
* TheLancer: Vyse's partner. Unlike most Lancers, her personality doesn't differ significantly from Vyse's other than the fact that she's rather hyper.
* LettingHerHairDown: Undoes her hair stalks when she goes to bed. Notably, men aren't allowed to glimpse her in this state (and if Vyse does, he takes a pounding for his trouble).
* LadyLegionnaireWear: The non-armor variant.
* LovableRogue
* TheMcCoy
* MegaTwintails
* MiniDressOfPower
* NumberTwo: To [[TheCaptain Vyse]]
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Vyse. While the game is vague on the whole Romance thing, it's clear that the two have an incredibly strong bond of trust with each other.
* PlayingWithFire: Alpha Storm, Lambda Burst, and Omega Psyclone are all fire attacks. She learns green (healing) magic the fastest, though.
* PirateGirl
* PluckyComicRelief
* PrecisionGuidedBoomerang
* RedheadedHero
* RummageSaleReject
* TheSouthpaw
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Fina's GirlyGirl.
* WingdingEyes: When stunned.
* XMeetsY:
** Her character design has often been described as "Literature/PippiLongstocking TookALevelInBadass" (the girl in question was already a LittleMissBadass)
** Given her dress and general Genkiness, ''Y'' is also often attributed to [[FinalFantasyVIII Selphie Tilmitt]].

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Fina__SOA__01_7758.jpg]]
::'''Fina'''

->''"I'm sorry... But I just cannot tell that to anyone."''

A mysterious girl from the Silver Civilization on a mission to recover the 6 moon crystals before [[EvilEmpire the Valuan Empire]] does. She knows very little about the world outside her homeland. She is adept at magic and fights with her pet, [[NonHumanSidekick Cupil]]. [[spoiler:In the epilogue, she decides to stay on Arcadia and continue to sail the skies with Vyse and Aika.]]

* CallingTheOldManOut: [[spoiler:She calls out Elder Prime for wishing to reset the world, having learned that there are good people in Arcadia.]]
* CleavageWindow: A {{Downplayed|Trope}} variation. [[spoiler:And it's there so her shard of the Silver Moon Crystal has a place to show itself.]]
* CoolAirship: [[spoiler:The only one that can exit the atmosphere.]]
* DetachedSleeves
* DistressedDamsel: Twice early on and then once more later.
* GodGuise: She's mistaken for a god by the people of Ixa'taka.
* [[spoiler:IChooseToStay: She becomes full on pirate girl in the epilogue.]]
* TheIngenue
* [[LastOfHisKind Last Of Her Kind]]: [[spoiler: At the end of the game, she's the sole surviving member of the silver civilization.]]
* LightIsGood
* LiteralMinded
* MacGuffinGirl: Even moreso after [[spoiler: Ramirez reveals that Silvites have a silver moon crystal within their bodies.]]
* MagikarpPower: Cupil, her "weapon", is relatively weak unless you max it out, at which point it becomes the strongest weapon in the game.
* MorphWeapon: Doubles as her NonHumanSidekick.
* MysteriousWaif
* NonHumanSidekick: Cupil
* PimpedOutDress: The gold colored trimmings on her dress.
* PirateGirl: [[spoiler: She doesn't dress like one until the epilogue cutscene.]]
* ProperLady
* ShrinkingViolet: Before she opens up to the Blue Rogues. Justified by the fact that she has lived most of her life in the isolation of the Silver Civilization and has been warned that people in Arcadia are selfish and primitive.
* SilkHidingSteel: She's has a soft, feminine and strong-willed personality. She tells off the '''Empress of Valua''' IN HER OWN COURT for her misuse of the crystals. [[spoiler: This is likely the reason why the elders originally sent Ramirez instead of her to scout for the Moon Crystals; also the reason why she was never fully briefed on their true intentions.]]
** Shown off even earlier when she is being interrogated by [[{{Badass}} Dyne]] after being rescued. ''She'' stares ''him'' down.
-->'''Dyne''': "Is it because we are Air Pirates? Don't you trust us?"
-->'''Fina''': "No, that has nothing to do with it. I thank you with all my heart for saving my life but I cannot tell any living soul about the purpose of my quest. Even if it means sacrificing my own life. I have no intention of endangering any of your lives. If you believe anything that I say, please believe this."
-->'''Dyne''': *{{beat}}* "Alright then. Heh. Looks like I lost this one."
* TheSpock
* SquishyWizard
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Aika's Tomboy.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Now and then somebody makes a big deal over how they've never seen clothes like hers before, but it's not particularly often.
* TheWatson: As a Silvite, Fina is totally in the dark with regard to Arcadia and its rules.
* WomanInWhite
* YinYangBomb: [[SquishyWizard Although she learns all magic quickly]], she learns Silver (light/darkness or "Void") magic the fastest.

[[quoteright:180:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/art-drachma_2687.jpg]]
::'''Drachma'''

->''"My sole purpose is to capture Rhaknam."''

An old fisherman who lost his arm, eye, and son to a giant arcwhale named Rhaknam; his life's goal is to hunt down Rhaknam to avenge his loss. He saves Vyse and Aika when they have a run-in with the arcwhale, and reluctantly becomes wraped up in their quest. He fights with his giant metal arm. [[spoiler:He gives up hunting Rhaknam when the arcwhale saves his life and his ship. In the epilogue, spends his last days as a fisherman in honor of Jack and Rhaknam.]]

* AnimalNemesis: He's Captain Ahab to Rhaknam's Moby Dick.
** Rhaknam is called Mobys in Japan.
* [[spoiler:AntagonistInMourning]]
* ArtificialLimbs: His arm.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBeard: Look out, it's Robot Ernest Hemingway! And he'll kick your ass.
** BadassGrandpa
* TheBigGuy:
* TheCaptain: Of his own certified CoolBoat, the Little Jack. Called this by Vyse, Aika, and Fina.
* ConscienceMakesYouGoBack: Sourly ditches Vyse and co. in Maramba, stranding them. Fortunately, he turns his ship around when he learns Belleza's in the area.
* CoolAirship: The Little Jack, [[spoiler: named after the son he lost along with his arm and eye]].
* CoolOldGuy
* CrashIntoHello: Vyse and Aika do the crashing, the Little Jack does the being crashed into.
* DopeSlap: Frequently conks Vyse across the head with his metal hand.
** Keep your hands on the wheel! ''CLANG''
* EyepatchOfPower: He got a spiffy mechanical arm out of the incident where he lost his eye, too...
* {{Expy}}: He's [[Literature/MobyDick Captain Ahab]], chasing after his version of Moby Dick.
* TheFerryman
* [[spoiler:GoingDownWithTheShip]]: The Little Jack is seemingly [[spoiler:destroyed when Ramirez opens fire on it]]. Drachma, unwilling to lose his quarry a second time, forces Vyse, Aika, and Fina onto lifeboats and [[spoiler:remains behind on the flaming ship]].
* GoodIsNotNice: Not above threatening people with death [[PerpSweating unless they tell him what he needs to know]]. He even does this with ''[[WouldHurtAChild Marco]]''.
* GoodScarsEvilScars
* GrumpyBear: Put it this way: his ''one'' entry in the Captain's Log is titled "Harumph!"
* GutturalGrowler
* HookHand: One of his early upgrades.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* JoinedYourParty: He falls in and out of the party early on, and when he finally rejoins for good this is noted as "Drachma joined your party... [[LampshadeHanging again]]."
* LikeASonToMe: Secretly views Vyse in this way, though it takes him an age to admit it.
* MakingASplash: He learns all types of magic very slowly, but he learns blue (water) magic faster than the other types.
* MightyGlacier
* [[spoiler:NeverFoundTheBody]]: The Captain seemingly [[spoiler:perishes in his final duel with Rhaknam]]. In truth, [[spoiler:Rhaknam]] [[{{Irony}} towed him safely]] all the way to [[spoiler:the polar ice cap]].
* NotInThisForYourRevolution: Drachma's only along for the ride until he gets another shot at Rhaknam. This ain't no RV. [[spoiler:He rejoins the party for the attack on Galcian's fleet]].
* [[spoiler:ObiWanMoment]]: Gives Vyse a quick smile (his only one in the game) before [[spoiler:being dragged away by Rhaknam]].
* PerpetualFrowner
* RedBaron: Valua lists him as "One-Armed Drachma."
* TeamDad: Though he resents it.
* ThisIsADrill: One of his weapon attachments. With a random chance of [[OneHitKill instakill]], too.
* [[StabTheSky Uppercut The Sky]]

::''The Little Jack''

Drachma's airship. A fishing boat that has been with Drachma for a very long time. [[spoiler:It was named after Drachma's son, who died when the ship was attacked by Rhaknam. It was almost destroyed by Ramirez, but was towed away by the giant arcwhale while it was still mostly in one piece.]]

* AnOddPlaceToSleep: The girls get their own cabin (converted from a storeroom), which leaves Vyse stuck with an engine room hammock. He doesn't mind it too much, aside from a few gripes about the noise.
* CoolAirship: While it gets overshadowed by the Delphinus, it's still an enduring little ship.
* ChekhovsGun: There are some lifeboats aboard...
* GrapplingHookPistol: But rarely used for grappling. [[spoiler:This function does save the ship and Drachma's life, though.]]
* HarpoonGun: "Harpoon Cannon... '''FIRE'''!"
* WhatAPieceOfJunk: An old fishing ship that Drachma outfitted for combat. However it's a ''very'' nimble little boat that packs a surprising wallop, and the ship manages to hold it's own against Valuan Cruisers several times throughout the story. It even manages to incapacitate a Gigas at one point.

[[quoteright:180:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/art-gilder_8372.jpg]]
::'''Gilder'''

->''"Only four of us against 100 of them, huh... Sounds fun. Count me in!"''

An easygoing air pirate captain who lives in pursuit of excitement (and pretty women). He's one of the most famous Blue Rogues in the skies, and is on the run from a girl from back home who is determined to marry him. He rescues Vyse from a deserted island, and fights with a pistol. [[spoiler:In the epilogue, he continues his search for "The Good Life."]]

* AdjustingYourGlasses: One of his victory poses.
* AnIcePerson: He learns purple (ice) magic faster than the other types.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBeard
** BadassInCharge: Kind of a given for a pirate captain...
** BadassLongcoat
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Doesn't look like much, but he forms a plan to escape the Valuan Grand Fortress quickly.
* TheCaptain: Of his CoolBoat, the Claudia.
* TheCasanova: Normally, he's portrayed as more of a ChivalrousPervert, but he does have some choice lines, including his infamous motto...
-->"Women are like sunsets. Each one is beautiful, but there'll be a new one tomorrow."
* ChekhovsGunman: If one checks the wanted list on Sailor's Island (a pretty early destination in the game), they'll find Gilder's name on there. Around the halfway point, he finally shows up.
* ChivalrousPervert: As evidenced by his mancave. ...er, the bridge of his ship.
* CoolAirship: The Claudia.
* CoolShades
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: He has a pet parrot named Willy. And he's a ChivalrousPervert.
* FunPersonified
* GangstaStyle: At close-range, though at close-range his gun is essentially right in the enemy's face. At long-range (his preferred range), he uses a much more practical two-handed grip.
* GunsAkimbo: One of Gilder's special moves.
* TheGunslinger
* LovableRogue
* PirateParrot
* MoreDakka: "Come on... Dance for me." "You mess with me, you mess with Claudia!"
* NoGuyWantsToBeChased: Jumped shore and became a pirate just to get as far away from Clara as humanely possible. This just made Clara want to find him more. He's actually fond of her but not ready to settle down yet.
* NoKillLikeOverkill: See MoreDakka.
* NorioWakamoto: Provided his voice in the Japanese version.
* RebelRelaxation
* SenseiForScoundrels:
** "Women are like sunsets: they're beautiful, but they will be a different one tomorrow." Are you getting this down, kid?
** Advises Vyse on the importance of finding a crew and a base, as well as never giving up; but he's considerably more hands-off than most mentors.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: It was supposed to be "Guilder."
* TheUnfettered: It's his epithet.
** RedBaron
* [[VitriolicBestBuds Vitriolic Lovers (?)]]: He has an odd relationship with Clara.

[[folder:The Valuan Empire]]
[[quoteright:210:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/art-teodora_268.jpg]]
::'''Empress Teodora'''

->''"All the countries shall kneel before me!"''

The ruler of the Valuan Empire and Enrique's mother, Teodora is a ruthless woman who will stop at nothing to unite the world under Valuan rule, as she believes is her destiny. She wants the moon crystals to aid in her goal, and to threaten anyone who would dare resist her by unleashing a Gigas. [[spoiler:She is killed when Galcian calls down the Rains of Destruction.]]

* AristocratsAreEvil
* BigBad: Directly responsible for all of the Valuan invasions that take place over the course of the game.
** [[spoiler:BigBadWannabe: Is eventually revealed to be this once Galcian proves himself to be [[EvilerThanThou Eviler Than Her]].]]
** NonActionBigBad
** TheHeavy
* TheCaligula: Not outright insane but self-absorbed, short-tempered, petty, and drunk with power.
* [[spoiler:CutsceneBoss: You never actually fight her and she's killed in a cutscene. It's less surprising than you'd think when you consider that, honestly, she looks too old to be any good in a scrap and we never see her using any magic, either.]]
* [[spoiler:DeathByIrony: Crushed beneath the columns of her own throne dais]].
* ElderlyBlueHairedLady
* EvilMatriarch: To Enrique.
* EvilOldFolks
* ExcessiveEvilEyeshadow
* FluffyFashionFeathers
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen
* HairTriggerTemper: Nearly ordering the beheading of Fina, the key agent to Valua's ''entire quest for global dominance'', because the girl spoke out of turn.
* HighCollarOfDoom
* IWasQuiteALooker: According to some of her subjects.
* LoveMakesYouCrazy and [[LoveMakesYouEvil Evil]]: See "Widow Woman".
* MoralityChain: Her late husband appears to have been one for her.
* OrcusOnHisThrone
* ParentalNeglect: Well, Enrique is already a grown man by the time the game begins, but it's pretty clear she's too self absorbed to pay much attention to him.
* PimpedOutDress
* PurpleIsPowerful
* RequisiteRoyalRegalia
* WidowWoman: Implied that her husband's death is what spurred her StartOfDarkness.

-----

[[quoteright:136:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/art-enrique_9032.jpg]]
::'''Enrique'''

->''"Mother, the course of this country is wrong!"''

The idealistic prince of Valua. Unlike the rest of the Valuan leadership, he advocates prosperity through more peaceful methods (such as Diplomacy), and strongly believes that his country's current path will lead to ruin. However, his mother dismisses his concerns as being foolish and naive. He fights with rapiers and sabers. [[spoiler: The Delphinus was meant to be his flagship but he gives it to Vyse when he joins him. In the epilogue, he marries Princess Moegi of Yafutoma and becomes emperor of Valua.]]

* AntagonisticOffspring:
* {{Bathos}}: It's clear that he's desperately trying to come off as cool at times, especially in his Special Moves, but a lot of the time it doesn't quite work... [[TheyPlottedAPerfectlyGoodWaste this is entirely in-keeping with his awkward mannerisms]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Enrique honestly thought he could convince his mother ''not'' to harness the Gigas after returning to Valua? [[spoiler:[[GenreSavvy Although he considered failure a possibility and was ready to kill her]] if she didn't agree.]]
* DefectorFromDecadence
* JackOfAllStats: Capable of using both offensive magic and physical attacks fairly effectively, but he's a bit slower than average to compensate, and his defense is often on par with [[FragileSpeedster Aika's]].
* [[FatherIDontWantToFight Mother, I Don't Want To Rule With An Iron Fist]]: He doesn't want world domination, either.
* NiceHat
* RoyalRapier
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething
* ShelteredAristocrat: Enrique lives a very sheltered life until his defection from Valua, but he shows a great deal of understanding and respect for most commoners. He is not a [[TheWisePrince wise prince]] either, though, as he does not share that archetype's traditional level of melancholia.
** Humorously, he also has a problem with airsickness when he first joins.
* ShockAndAwe: He learns yellow (electric) magic the fastest.
* SixthRanger / TheSmartGuy: Fulfills this for most of the game once Gilder is gone.
* StabTheSky
* SwordBeam: When attacking from a distance.
* TokenEnemyMinority
-----

[[quoteright:180:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/art-galcian_4428.jpg]]
::'''Galcian'''

->''"I am not tolerant enough to give you a second chance."''

Grand Admiral of the Valuan Armada, Lord Galcian is loyal to one thing and one thing only: power. Cold, calculating, and utterly ruthless, he intends to bring the entire world under the control of the Armada and is pursuing the moon crystals towards that end. His flagships are the ''Serpent'' and the ''Hydra'' which, like all Valuan ships, are named for constellations. [[spoiler:He dies when Belleza rams into his escape pod.]]

* AllEncompassingMantle: Galcian always travels in style while wearing a gold-embroided cloak with [[HighCollarOfDoom a giant red collar]]. [[spoiler: He ditches it after committing treason against Valua.]]
* [[spoiler:AGodAmI: Once he gets his hands on the Silver Moon Crystal.]]
* ArmiesAreEvil: The Armada essentially goes rogue in Disc 2, with the entire fleet emigrating to Soltis with Galcian. [[spoiler:Valua is disposed of]] like so much used kleenex.
* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking
* BeardOfEvil
* {{BFS}}: Particularly stands out since almost every other hand-to-hand combat weapon is a realistic size.
** OneHandedZweihander: "Vyse, I don't think we can take him." You should listen to Aika.
* [[TheBrute The Brutal]] [[TheDragon Dragon]]: For Empress Teodora.
** [[spoiler:DragonWithAnAgenda: He's been building up his power base for some time now to embark on his own plans for World Domination. He eventually becomes the true BigBad late in the game after he and the majority of the Armada go rogue.]]
* BigWhat / OhCrap: Upon realizing that [[spoiler:Belleza's NotQuiteDead]].
* BlondesAreEvil
* TheCoatsAreOff: Right before a battle.
* DarkMessiah: Belleza and Ramirez consider him one.
* DragonInChief: He's subordinate to Teodora, but is more of a direct threat to the protagonists.
* [[spoiler:DrunkOnTheDarkSide: His face while calling down the Rains of Destruction screams '''"UNLIMITTEEEDDD POOWWWAARGHHHHH!!!"''' And [[ChewingTheScenery then there's his dialogue]].]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards:
** After Alfonso cowardly kills his own Vice-Captain and abandons ship, Galcian relieves Alfonso's command of the Mid-Ocean fleet and dumps him in Ixa'taka.
** He shows genuine respect for Gregorio after their duel and orders [[spoiler:Gregorio's body]] shipped back to Valua, telling his men to take the utmost care with it, because it was "worth more than their lives."
** The flashbacks in ''Legends'' show Galcian as a up-and-coming Admiral. When Ramirez defends the honor of his benefactor and friend, Admiral Mendosa, Galcian snorts that Mendosa is a thief and a liar. This later turns out to be true when Mendosa is exposed as a slave-trader.
* EvilIsHammy: For the most part, he's a ''very'' [[TheStoic cold, calculating, and emotionless baddie]]... [[spoiler:then he gets his hands on Zelos' power to create the Rains of Destruction, and begins devouring entire sets]].
* EvilLaugh
* EvilMentor: Victorious in the case of Ramirez.
* GoodHairEvilHair: ''Definitely'' evil hair.
* HitlerCam: As Ramirez glowingly describes the virtues of his boss, we see a cutscene of Galcian in this pose.
* HopelessBossFight: It's possible to fight him early in the game. Just not advisable.
* InsaneAdmiral: While not demonstrably insane, he is weirdly indifferent to the country he supposedly defends.
* LaserGuidedKarma: His ruthlessness ultimately got the better of him. Or, at the very least, if you're [[spoiler:sending someone to their death]], make sure they STAY dead.
* MakeAnExampleOfThem: Mused over killing the Blue Rogues and leaving their carcasses "rotting in the sun" -- but admitted that they probably aren't dumb enough to resist capture.
** UpToEleven in the case of [[spoiler:the entire Valuan continent]]. They could use a little rain....
* MightyGlacier: You'll more-than-likely outspeed him during the battle, but he'll hit like a tonne of bricks unless you're careful.
* ObviouslyEvil: You mean the pantomime moustache, high collar, and theme tune that sounds like a funeral march on evil pills didn't tip you off? His appearance in the ''intro'' makes him do a theatrical flourish towards the camera as ''the set turns into a flaming background around him''.
* TheRival: To a degree, since the BigBad keeps shifting over the course of the game. On the matter, Galcian fully considers Vyse as his main antagonist and recognizes him as a person. Compare to Ramirez who just consider the Blue Rogues as a nuisance and never adresses anyone on personal terms, Fina excepted.
* ShockAndAwe [=/=] YinYangBomb: Uses mostly Electric and Void magic in the battle against him.
* TheStarscream: To Empress Teodora. Played with in that [[SelectiveObliviousness she is the only one who doesn't seem to realise]].
* TakeOverTheWorld: He couldn't have done it without a Silvite's help. Perversely, ''this'' is the guy Ramirez held up as the pinnacle of humanity.
* ThisIsUnforgivable: When word reaches Crescent Isle of Valua being [[spoiler:destroyed by the Rains of Destruction]], Vyse loudly declares that the armada has gone too far.
* UnflinchingWalk: His Terminator stride while atop a fast-moving Valuan bullet train.

::'''Ramirez'''

->''"...Slay the enemy. That is all."''

Galcian's former vice captain, who was promoted to Admiral of the newly-formed sixth fleet of the Valuan Armada. He would follow Galcian to his own death. His flagship is the ''Monoceros'', meaning "unicorn" in Greek. [[spoiler: He is also from the Silver Civilization, and was the one originally sent to gather the Moon Crystals, but some bad experiences with the Valuan Armada turned him cold and cynical. He is killed by Vyse and his friends after fusing with Zelos. His only remnant, his Silver Moon Crystal, is given a burial at sky.]]

* AerithAndBob: At least when compared with the Silvite Elders, whose names all sound like [[{{Transformers}} Autobots]].
* AmbiguouslyGay: [[WhiteHairBlackHeart Villainous white haired]] {{Bishonen}}? Check. Strictly platonic relationships with every woman he meets in the game? Check. Name of his ship is "unicorn" in Greek? Check. [[spoiler:Undergoes a HeroicBSOD and FaceHeelTurn when his first (male) mentor betrays him? Check. Undergoes a VillainousBreakdown, ''cries'' and attempts to [[TakingYouWithMe take all of Arcadia down with him]] after Galcian's death? .....'''''Check.''''']]
* [[spoiler:AvengingTheVillain]]
* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking
* BreakTheCutie: His BackStory reveals this was the case with him. Before his FaceHeelTurn, Ramirez was shown to be gentle and sensitive - not terribly different from Fina's own personality. [[spoiler:He's then recruited into the Valuan Armada and sent to work in what amounts to a death camp. When he attempts to better the lives of the Ixa'Takans by requesting it be brought up with the Empress and later discovers that the man he trusted above anyone else was also exploiting them for his own gain? He's nearly murdered for it.]]
* BrokenPedestal: Galcian warned him not to place others too high. When his estimation of [[spoiler:Medosa]] is shattered, Ramirez shifts his admiration to Galcian.
* BullyingADragon: [[spoiler:Admiral Mendosa]] actually thought he and his men could take Ramirez in a fight. Bad idea.
* BurialAtSea: Even with all that's happened, Vyse recognizes Ramirez as a fellow sailor and [[spoiler:returns his Moon Crystal to the sky]].
* TheDragon: To another Dragon.
** [[spoiler:DragonAscendant]]
* EnigmaticMinion: No one knows where this pasty, creepy swordsman came from, but he's an excellent officer and pals with the Grand Admiral so nobody questions it. Queen Teodora was kept out of the loop about Ramirez's connections with the Silvites.
* EvilCostumeSwitch: The additional scenes in ''Legends'' show Ramirez wearing all-white Silvite clothes (similar to Fina) when he's retrieved by the Valuans. He dons a suit of chrome armor upon joining Mendosa's fleet, and finally the black uniform after [[spoiler:slaughtering Mendosa and his crew]].
* EvilCounterpart: To Fina. Had Ramirez been the Silvite who was found by Vyse's crew, and Fina fallen into the hands of Valua, their fates might have been reversed.
** He is also the complete opposite of main character Vyse.
* EvilIsDeathlyCold: His S-moves have a bit of an ice-themed spin.
* FaceHeelTurn: Although it happened ''long'' before the story began.
* FallenHero: According to Fina (and optional flashbacks), he used to be a lot like Vyse. The main difference was that he was (still is?) much more susceptible to other's wills.
* FinalBoss
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:[[EtTuBrute Betrayal]] by the Valuan [[BrokenPedestal Admiral Mendosa]], a man whom he greatly respected.]]
* HeKnowsTooMuch: Forced to kill his [[spoiler:mentor and superior officer]] after discovering his side venture in Ixa T'aka: a forced labor camp.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter
* HopelessBossFight: It's possible to fight him a total of 3 times, though only one of those fights, [[spoiler: the one at the end of the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon,]] is possible to win. In the other two, he has infinite HP.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: His StartOfDarkness begins when [[spoiler: he murders Admiral Mendosa, a man who was forcing the already abused Ixa'Takan natives to work extra hours for his own personal profit]].
* KnightTemplar
* ManlyTears: His eyes are still glistening when Vyse confronts him at last. Ramirez has finally lost his mind.
** TearsOfBlood: During the animation for his "Silver Tundra" attack, Ramirez raises his head, allowing a single tear of blood to roll down his cheek. ''Shudder''...
* MasterSwordsman: The guy can cut ''light'' with his sword. He can also call up icy spires and impale people on them. [[{{Bishonen}} Pretty boy]] though he may be, he is ''not'' one to be crossed, and you'd do very well to listen to Fina's advice the first time he gives you the choice of surrendering or dying.
* MisanthropeSupreme
* NotSoDifferent: His old living quarters in the Great Silver Shrine is eerily similar to Vyse's loft on Pirate Isle. A model ship and cartography map are on display, and Fina confirms that Ramirez once dreamed of exploring the world. Eerily, Ramirez ended up doing just that... as Admiral of a airborne destroyer.
* [[spoiler:OmnicidalManiac: After Galcian dies, he kind of... loses it... And decides that all of the world deserves to die if Galcian can't rule it.]]
* [[spoiler:OneWingedAngel: Twice. Following his defeat, he merges with Zelos, and later [[NotQuiteDead crash-lands on the Delphinus]] to start the fight anew.]]
* OutOfTheInferno: Twice.
* [[spoiler:PersonOfMassDestruction: When he fuses with Zelos, they become this.]]
* PlatonicLifePartners: [[spoiler:With Fina, before his FaceHeelTurn.]]
* RecurringBoss: Though only 2 fights are actually necessary, the others are optional ([[HopelessBossFight and impossible to win]]).
* SinkTheLifeBoats
* StartOfDarkness: Learned through the Moonfish and Piastol sidequest.
* SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum: Deciding the world must burn for not accepting Galcian as its ruler. He becomes the ''embodiment'' of [[spoiler:Zelos]] in order to see the destruction through.
* TheStoic: [[spoiler: ... At least until Galcian is killed.]]
* ThatManIsDead: He quotes this verbatim when Fina attempts to appeal to his gentler side.
* TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty: A full-scale attack on Nasr's capital. From [[FailsafeFailure behind the defensive wall]].
* UsedToBeASweetKid: According to Fina and the Moonfish sidequest.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Ramirez is not a nice man. But at the end of the day, he genuinely does think that putting Galcian in charge will save the world and make it a better place, and he's willing to do ''anything'' to make it a reality.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart
* WickedCultured: Examining the objects in his room reveals that he is a fan of building models, geography, and literature.
* [[WideEyedIdealist Wide-Eyed Idealist]]: [[spoiler:When he first arrives in Arcadia and meets the Valuans; learning that Mendosa has betrayed him causes him to FaceHeelTurn.]] He still remains a fanatical idealist, however, believing that only Galcian has what is necessary to lead the world.

[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/art-alfonso_8234.jpg]]
::'''Alfonso'''

->''"Consider yourself honored to be able to meet me."''

Admiral of the first fleet of the Valuan Armada, he got his position through connections and family ties. His ego is larger than his flagship, the ''Cygnus'' meaning "swan." [[spoiler:He is killed when Galcian calls down the Rains of Destruction.]]

* [[spoiler: AntiMutiny: Surprisingly, he joins Gregorio in refusing to go along with Galcian's coup d'état. (He's probably still resentful of being assigned to Ixa'taka.) Alfonso immediately reports on Galcian's treason to the Queen, and is promoted to Grand Admiral for his efforts. Then he's killed by the rains soon after.]]
* AristocratsAreEvil:
* BigBadWannabe
* {{Bishounen}}
* BlingOfWar
* BlondGuysAreEvil
* CutsceneBoss / TheUnfought: He sends his war beasts to fight for him, and you never get to fight his flagship. [[spoiler: He dies in a cutscene by being crushed by a pillar.]]
** Given how much of a flop he is, it probably wouldn't be much of a fight anyways.
* DirtyCoward: [[EstablishingCharacterMoment Established at the beginning of the game]]: he flees for the escape pods after the Blue Rogues attack his ship; leaving his crew high and dry so he can run back home and claim credit for capturing Fina. He also kills his Vice-captain so he can have a {{Scapegoat}}. [[spoiler: After Galcian unleashes the rains on Valua, he ditches the Empress and tries to save his own skin. Doesn't do him much good.]]
* FluffyTamer: He has two pet war beasts, [[ReplacementGoldfish both named Antonio]].
* GloryHound
* HighCollarOfDoom
* ManInWhite
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Spoils [=DeLoco=]'s plan to lock Vyse in an [[TheWallsAreClosingIn inescapable death trap]]. [=DeLoco=] is so furious, he eventually decides to just squash them both; but by then, Vyse has gotten away.
* PointyHairedBoss: Alfonso commands respect for precisely no one. It's common knowledge that he only became Admiral thanks to his family pulling some strings.
* SelfishEvil: Discussed in-universe. After his first horrible failure, Galcian points out that Alfonso is a liar, a cheat, and an ''utter'' coward who is only out for his own personal gain who doesn't deserve to command the Mid-Ocean fleet. [[spoiler:His refusal to go along with Galcian's coup was probably motivated by this as well, seeing as he had a lot of wealth and privilege back in Valua.]]
* SissyVillain
* SmallNameBigEgo
* SmugSnake
* StarterVillain: The game's prologue suggests that Alfonso and Vyse will become arch-enemies. This isn't exactly the case.
* SixthRanger: For the Valuan Admirals. He's the only one who is, quite simply, an utter failure in everything he does and is implied to have only earned his rank through his status rather than actual merit.
* VillainExitStageLeft: He talks a good game, but he always winds up shoving his men aside in a race for the exit.
* WrongGenreSavvy: As mentioned above, Alfonso doesn't seem to understand that ''Skies'' isn't the sort of story where bad guys don't punish other bad guys.

::'''Gregorio'''

->''"I, Gregorio, shall not let you through!"''

Admiral of the second fleet of the Valuan Armada, renowned for his incredible defensive tactics. He raised Prince Enrique, and has a very close bond with him. He has no interest in conquest, but is loyal to his country. His flagship, the ''Auriga'' or "charioteer," has a spiked hull used as a shield and a battering ram. [[spoiler:He is killed in a HeroicSacrifice battle against Galcian.]]

* BadassBeard
* BadassGrandpa
* BladeOnAStick
* TheDarkChick: One of the only two Valuan admirals who are decent people at heart.
** TheBigGuy: A lot of the time he tends to come off as a ''heroic'' FiveManBand member; which makes one wonder just what Valua was like before the empress went loco.
* [[spoiler:DefectorFromDecadence]]
* FriendlyEnemy
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn]]
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice [=/=] YouShallNotPass: He gives his life holding off Galcian so Vyse, Aika, Fina, and Enrique could escape from Dangral Island. Galcian respects this.]]
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: True to form, he carries a large ballistic shield into his duel with [[spoiler:Galcian]].
* MightyGlacier [=/=] StoneWall: He's known for his excellent defensive tactics, but he still hits like a truck.
* MyCountryRightOrWrong: He doesn't believe that what Teodora and Galcian are trying to do is right, but he loves Valua. He fights for his country rather than its rulers.
* NobleTopEnforcer
* OfficerAndAGentleman: Nice enough to send Enrique a dispatch announcing his intention to shell the town he's in.
* RammingAlwaysWorks: His fleet isn't so much composed of ships as airborne ''battering rams''.
* [[spoiler:RedemptionEqualsDeath]]
* ShonenHair
* WorthyOpponent: To both the Blue Rogues [[spoiler:and even Galcian, who shows genuine respect for Gregorio's body after their duel and orders that his men ship his body back to Valua, saying it was more valuable than their lives. Since Galcian respects nobody, this should tell you ''a lot''.]]

::'''Vigoro'''

->''"Should I fire my big cannon, baby?"''

Admiral of the third fleet of the Valuan Armada. He's a huge flirt who believes that a powerful offense is the best defense, and has a huge cannon mounted on the bow of his flagship, the ''Draco'' which has a HUGE CANNON, BABY! [[spoiler:He becomes an Air Pirate and is the only surviving Valuan Admiral.]]

* AnimeHair: Sculpts his hair into a right triangle. [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries Attention, duelists!]]
* {{BFG}}
* BloodKnight: He's unconcerned with what Valua is plotting. He's just in it for the thrill of battle. [[spoiler: He outright states this when Galcian takes control of the Valuan Armada, pointing out that as long as he gets to fight he doesn't care who's in charge.]]
* [[spoiler:BonusBoss: As an air pirate.]]
* TheBrute: His ship has the strongest firepower of all the Valuan flagships.
* CarpetOfVirility: Has no shortage of body hair, which Aika is ''not'' turned-on by.
* TheCasanova: According to him, at least.
** CasanovaWannabe
* CompensatingForSomething: "Hey Vyse! My cannon's bigger than yours!"
-->'''Aika:''' [[LampshadeHanging Talk about compensating for something... That guy's got a complex.]]
* DoubleEntendre: "Hey Red, you should come over to my ship, we can rock the boat!"
* DumbMuscle: Although it's more down to the fact that he doesn't really think about the consequences of his actions rather than an actual lack of intelligence on his part.
* GlassCannon
* HandsomeLech
* HeelFaceTurn
* HeyItsThatVoice: [[SuperMarioBros It's-a me, baby!]]
* KavorkaMan: Claims "no woman in Valua" can resist him. Doesn't say much for their hygiene over there.

::'''Belleza'''

->''"You're already playing my game, handsome."''

Admiral of the fourth fleet of the Valuan Armada, and the Armada's covert operations specialist and a master tactician. She lost her parents in the Valua-Nasr war, and wants to put an end to wars so nobody else would have to go through what her family did. Her flagship is the ''Lynx''. [[spoiler:She dies when she rams the Lynx into Galcian's escape pod, killing both of them.]]

* [[AffablyEvil Affably Morally Ambiguous]]
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: [[spoiler:She was in love with Galcian, but knew that the only thing he could ever love was power.]]
* BadSamaritan
* TheBaroness
* [[spoiler:BellyDancer: "Bellena." Don't ask how she can hide her modest military uniform under belly dancer veils and a fake tan...]]
* BuxomIsBetter: [[spoiler: Even [[ChasteHero Vyse]] seems to think so, considering he couldn't take his eyes off her when she was belly dancing.]]
* TheDarkChick: The only other Valuan Admiral who is in some way legitimately good. She's a much more traditional example than Gregorio.
* TheDogBitesBack: [[spoiler:Flies her battleship straight into Galcian's tiny escape pod]]. Ouch.
* EarlyBirdBoss
* EvilRedhead
* FemmeFatale
* FreudianExcuse: Her father perished during the last great war, leaving his wife and daughter in abject poverty.
* FriendlyEnemy: She isn't on your side ([[spoiler:for most of the game]]), but she doesn't want to fight and is trying to achieve the same goal as you; she just thinks the way to do it is to unite the world under a single ruler.
* HalfTruth: Everything she told Vyse about her family history [[spoiler:while in her Bellena disguise]] was true. She just neglected to mention that [[spoiler:her father was fighting on the ''Valuan'' side of the Valua-Nasr War]].
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: She gives her life to destroy Galcian's escape pod, killing him as he tries to get away from his burning fortress.]]
* [[spoiler:HighHeelFaceTurn]]

** TakeThatKiss: Enjoys blowing a kiss at Vyse whenever she outsmarts him.
* LadyOfWar
* MobileMenace: Vyse will forever go down in history for proving the world was spherical, but Belleza [[UpToEleven beat him there]]!
* NotQuiteDead
* OfCorsetsSexy
* [[spoiler:PaperThinDisguise: She poses as a BellyDancer named Bellena working in Maramba. Although it's justified in that Vyse, Aika, and Fina had never seen Belleza before.]]

::'''De Loco'''

->''"Hee hee... I'll kill you with my ship!"''

Admiral of the fifth fleet of the Valuan Armada. He wears a space suit and is the Armada's head of research and development. He loves his creations more than people, and gets extremely angry at anyone who damages his precious flagship, the ''Chameleon''. [[spoiler:His lust for revenge gets the better of him as he ignores the damage his Chameleon took and continues to fight Vyse. Vyse kills him by destroying the Chameleon at Deep Sky. Interestingly, this makes him the only one of the five admirals to die at the hands of Vyse.]]

* AceCustom
* AerosolFlamethrower
* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler:[[AvertedTrope Nope.]] Probably the only antagonist in the game who's death garners no sympathy. Vyse says something along the lines of "Finally rid of that Psycho!"]]
* AxCrazy: By far the most mentally unhinged of all the admirals.
* CoolAirship: The Chameleon, gaining a [[SwissArmyWeapon flamethrower, revolver cannon, moonstone cannon, and harpoon cannon]] at different points in the game.
* DisproportionateRetribution: "YOU SCRATCHED MY SHIP!!!!!!!"
* TheEvilGenius: Maybe not so much "evil" as "obsessive and [[ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder mentally unstable]]."
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: [[spoiler:His ship explodes in Deep Sky. If there were survivors, the pressure crushed their bodies.]]
* FauxAffablyEvil
* ForScience: He's only interested in plundering the technology of the Silvites so that he can learn their secrets.
* GadgeteerGenius
* GigglingVillain
* GrapplingHookPistol: Played straight, unlike Drachma.
* HarpoonGun: Not used as such, ironically.

* PropheticName
* PutTheLaughterInSlaughter: "Hee hee... now I will '''kill''' you!"

[[folder:The Gigas]]

The Gigas are six [[LivingWeapon living]] [[LostSuperWeapon weapons]] (red, green, blue, purple, yellow, and silver) created by the Old Civilizations of Arcadia to go to war with each other. They are controlled by activating their respective Moon Crystals.

::'''Recumen'''

The first Gigas, made by the red civilization and residing in [[{{Qurac}} Nasr]], is activated by Belleza. It attacks with a supercharged heat beam known as the "Red Ray" from one of its four heads. It is put to rest by Belleza to avoid it rampaging and killing her crew.

* HopelessBossFight: You can't win, but you run away to attack Belleza instead.
* HeWasRightThereAllAlong: Camouflaged as [[spoiler:the four "statues" at the base of Pyrynn Temple]]. Their empty gaze is turned in on the Gigas' activation console.
* PlayingWithFire
* TakenForGranite
* WaveMotionGun: Red Ray

-----

::'''Grendel'''

The second Gigas, made by the green civilization, is found in [[{{Mayincatec}} Ixa'taka]]. It is awakened by Ixa'taka's king and goes on a rampage when he is knocked unconscious. It has no real long range weapon, so it hurls boulders, and its punch can destroy small islands. Oddly, its attacks have little to do with healing or poison. It is defeated by [[EpicFail falling into a river and being unable to pick itself up out of the ditch.]] It is then deactivated.

* CyberCyclops
* HopelessBossFight: You win the fight not by reducing its HP to zero, but by knocking it off-balance so it falls into a canyon and gets stuck. If you're patient and determined enough, you can reduce its HP to zero but this doesn't change the resulting cutscene.
* {{Literary Allusion|Title}}: To the antagonist of ''Literature/{{Beowulf}}''
* OurGiantsAreBigger
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* SuperStrength: It has no special attacks outside of hitting you REALLY hard... and throwing rocks REALLY HARD... and stomping your ship [[RuleOfThree REALLY FREAKING HARD]].
-----

::'''Bluheim'''

The third is [[{{Wutai}} Yafutoma's]] Gigas, made by the blue civilization. It is a [[ThePhoenix phoenix]] or [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragon-like]] Gigas. It is the first Gigas with the capability of flight, as well as the first to be outright destroyed in ship-to-ship combat.

* BeamSpam: The WaveMotionGun attack Phoenix Ray.
* BlowYouAway: Uses wind and wave attacks.
* FeatheredFiend: Though its wings appear to be split skin rather than feathers.
* GiantFlyer
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: It's part dragon, part bird.
* RuleOfCool: Once defeated, it lands in a heap at the foot of Mt. Kazai. ...As opposed to the vast kilometers of empty clouds it could have fallen into.
* TakenForGranite: When you first see it, it's encased in hardened lava.

-----

::'''Plergoth'''

The fourth Gigas, made by the purple civilization, is formally known as Plergoth, but is actually [[spoiler:Drachma's arch-enemy, the arcwhale Rhaknam. The purple civilization decided to turn a living creature into a gigas rather than make one. He has an unnaturally low body heat and causes fog wherever he goes. He is mortally wounded by Ramirez and flees home to Glacia, but dies as a result of the encounter, leaving the Purple Moon Crystal for Vyse.]]

* [[AnIcePerson An Ice Gigas]]
* DeathEqualsRedemption: Only in its last moments does [[spoiler:Drachma]] realize the folly of his vendetta, as [[spoiler:Rhaknam]] is a man-made monstrosity and didn't mean to hurt anyone.
* FlyingSeafoodSpecial
* ImDyingPleaseTakeMyMacguffin: Unlike with the other gigases, a Moon Crystal was embedded into its skin. It clinks to the floor once Plergoth take its last breath.
* PurpleIsPowerful
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* RoarBeforeBeating
* TragicVillain
* [[spoiler: TheUnfought]]

-----

::'''Yeligar'''

The [[TheEmpire Yellow Civilization's]] Gigas is sealed under the Maw of Tartas in Valua and, as such, cannot be reached until you can fly to low altitudes. It breaks its seal, is sent back down, and never comes up again.

* BewareMyStingerTail: Basically a giant rail gun.
* GiantFlyer
* GiantSpider: Resembles one.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Also kind of resembles one.
* ShockAndAwe

-----

::'''Zelos'''

The Silver Gigas, Zelos, [[spoiler:is activated by using all six Moon Crystals. It was created to end the Old Civilization by the Silver Civilization's Elders. Once they decomissioned the other Gigas and took the other Moon Crystals, they used Zelos to kill millions with the Rains of Destruction. Unleashes the Rains of Destruction again on Valua when reawakened by Galcian, and fuses with Ramirez after Galcian's death. It's eventually destroyed by Vyse.]]

* ApocalypseHow: Capable of causing anything from a Class 0 to a Class 5. It only ever achieves Class 2 under the [[spoiler:Silver Civilization.]]
** ApocalypseWow: You can just smell the fear in [[spoiler:Valua, can't you?]]
* TheBlank: The only Gigas with no semblance of a face, or even a head, until it [[spoiler: fuses with Ramirez]]. Then, it fits the definition of this trope in a much more conventional way.
* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: [[spoiler:It already did it once....]]
* EvilCounterpart: According to Fina, Zelos was based on the same nanotech as Cupil. Yep, its Cupil's ''big'' cousin.
* FantasticNuke
* FixedForwardFacingWeapon: Its 'eye', which is a facsimile of Soltis' cannon room.
* KillSat: [[spoiler:The Arcadian equivalent.]]
* PunnyName
* SlasherSmile: Once [[spoiler:Ramirez]] gives it a face, it does this during their joint super move.
* TransformationSequence: The whole of its battle is preventing it from transforming to its invincible ultimate form.

[[folder:Black Pirates]]

The Black Pirates are the opposite of the Blue Rogues. Where Blue Rogues are JustLikeRobinHood, Black Pirates are... well... [[ShapedLikeItself Pirates]]. They attack merchant vessels for their goods and it's implied that many rape women. In Legends, you can take on some of these pirates in [[BonusBoss optional]] [[BountyHunter Bounty Missions]].

-----

A Black Pirate feared around Mid Ocean. He attacks ships for their cargo in his ship, ''The Blackbeard''. Vyse encounters him while escorting a Nasrian merchant home and is the game's first ship battle. He swears revenge and returns near the end only to be hopelessly outmatched by the Delphinus's power.

::'''Rupee'''

Rupee is the newest leader of the infamous Larso Clan of Nasrian Black Pirates. Though the wanted poster seems imposing, the figure on the poster is actually his bodyguard, Barta.

* BillyElliotPlot
* DualBoss
* [[FatherIDontWantToFight Barta I Don't Want To Fight]]
* GoodOldFisticuffs: Barta's style.
* ManBehindTheMan: Played with. Barta is the one influencing Rupee, but does care for him. And if you get Rupee's health down, he will go berserk and kick Barta into you ForMassiveDamage.
* MoralDissonance: Did Vyse just beat up a child?
* ShootTheMedicFirst: [[TemptingFate Uh, no.]] [[SchmuckBait You really shouldn't.]] It's not a good idea.
* SquishyWizard: Rupee, made useless by Delta Shield.
* WakeUpCallBoss: Players lulled into a false sense of security by Baltor are in for a rude awakening. Rupee and Barta are far from the hardest bounty fight, especially once one figures out the gimmicks for [[ChargedAttack Legendary Punch]] and [[ShootTheMedicFirst Berserk Rupee]], but they can be quite difficult.

-----

::'''Gordo'''

He decides to become an engineer and hopes to surpass his father.

* BlondGuysAreEvil
* CallingTheOldManOut
* FlunkyBoss
* FreudianExcuse: Centime let his life pass him by without showing off his brilliant mind. Lapen doesn't want the same to happen to him.
* GadgeteerGenius: Like father like adopted son.
* HappilyAdopted: Despite his anger at Centime, he does cite Centime's brilliance as an engineer and doesn't seem to hate him personally.
* ItRunsInTheFamily: Subverted, Centime is not his biological father.

* [[CostumeCopycat Costume Copycats]] ''and'' [[CriminalDoppelganger Criminal Doppelganger]]
* FlunkyBoss
* IdenticalStranger: The resemblance is uncanny...
** PaperThinDisguise: ...but their features are totally different. Vize has blue eyes and freckles. Faina is an EvilAlbino with red eyes. Anita has [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair purple hair]].
* KillAndReplace: Vize is bored with petty robbery. He aims to kill Vyse and take his ship.
* MirrorBoss: Cutlass Wrath! Anita Burst!
* ScareEmStraight

::'''Daikokuya'''

An elderly Yafutoman Black Pirate who sails in a needlessly extravagent ship over Glacia. He challenges Vyse to battle hoping to show him that money can buy power [[spoiler:and hoping he'll be able to [[HoYay woo Vyse]] with the promise of money.]] After his defeat he decides to continue traveling the world.

-----

::'''Lord Zivilyn Bane'''

The leader of the Zivilyn Bane Clan of thieves that Vyse has fought in every dungeon. He is found in Soltis and escapes after his defeat.

* BigBulkyBomb: That he keeps under his cloak...
* ChestMonster: All of the lesser Zivilyn Banes pop out of chests in the other dungeons, and he comes from a chest in the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon.
* CoolShades
** GogglesDoNothing: In Soltis, at least. Since the Zivilyn Bane are based in Nasr, they're probably useful there.
* TheFaceless
* FlunkyBoss: Comes with two Zivilyn Bane in tow, and can summon more.
* ShootTheMedicFirst: He and his clan tend to target Fina frequently. Perhaps they hate Silvites?
** Alternatively, they're DangerouslyGenreSavvy.
** He's fought in Soltis, so hating Silvites would make sense somewhat, as he had to go through a lot of annoying Silvite robots to get as deep as he is.
* WolverineClaws: Supersized.

A Legends-exclusive BountyHunter known as the "[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Angel of Death]]" who kills wanted air pirates (and is wanted by the Armada herself, ironically) and has a vendetta against Vyse and Aika.

* BestServedCold
* BlackSpot: Her calling card. Whenever she starts hunting a new mark, she delivers one of these to the Sailor's Guild, who then hands it to the poor bastard when he or she walks in. It's a black piece of paper with a threatening message signed by the "[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Angel of Death]]". Written in '''red ink.'''
* BonusBoss
* BountyHunter
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Inverted. Piastol remembers Vyse from a tragic event from her past but Vyse has no idea what she's talking about. Of course, she refuses to listen to anything they say, which doesn't help things. [[spoiler: Aika, however, remembers the incident because Vyse got hurt protecting her.]]
* ChainmailBikini: A leather dominatrix outfit.
* TheDreaded: Her reputation as a BountyHunter, as well as [[DeadManWalking what the Sailor's Guild clerk says]] as he hands you your BlackSpot, indicates that she is this to Air Pirates.

* ItsPersonal: [[spoiler:She thinks Vyse killed her father, and swore to get revenge on him.]]

* RecurringBoss
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: She becomes one of the most feared [[BountyHunter Bounty Hunters]] in Arcadia because [[spoiler:she believes pirates - specifically, ''Vyse'' - killed her father and younger sister.]]

* [[spoiler:YouKilledMyFather:]] Too bad for her, [[spoiler:Vyse ''didn't''. It was actually Ramirez.]]

* BrokenPedestal: [[spoiler:To Ramirez.]]
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler:For Ramirez. His death also served as one to Piastol, though her rage was directed at the wrong man.]]

::'''Clara'''

An air pirate who saves Aika and Fina when they get separated from Vyse. She's determined to marry Gilder, whether he wants it or not (he doesn't).

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: She may seem like she [[TheDitz has her head in the clouds]] and is utterly [[MadLove obsessed with Gilder]], but she doesn't think twice about getting her crew and ship to attack ''[[TheAlcatraz The Grand Fortress]]'' to help break Vyse and friends out. And she puts up one hell of a fight!
** Don't forget Gilder was one of those held captive inside. You really don't want to mess with Clara where he's concerned.
* ImpracticallyFancyOutfit: A slightly PimpedOutDress is nice, but a tad impractical for a pirate.
* LastSecondWordSwap: "He's so [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal strong, smart, and]]... yummy!"
* MadLove: Poor Gilder.
** Despite what he says, it is implied that he is actually quite fond of her. Heck, both of them may even enjoy the chase.
* PimpedOutDress
* PinkMeansFeminine
* PirateGirl: One of the friendliest characters in the game. Don't let the pink fool you though, there's a ''[[{{Badass}} reason]]'' she's able to sail the skies so freely.
* StalkerWithACrush: Though she's probably the nicest stalker ever. She'll even make you pie. Lampshaded by Aika.
-->'''Aika:''' That was the nicest stalker I've ever met. But at least it explains why her entire ship looks like a honeymoon suite.
* {{Yandere}}: In the most benign, PlayedForLaughs manner possible.

-----

A Blue Rogue well known for his engineering feats. He spends most of the game working on his downed ship, the ''Ironclad'', in Horteka.

:: '''"Doc"'''

A doctor sailing around the Mid Ocean area near Sailor's Island. Formerly served as a medical officer in the Valuan armada. He looks after a young girl named Maria, and enlists Vyse's help in collecting Moonfish for her pet bird.

* TheAtoner: He feels responsible for what happened to [[spoiler:Piastol, Ramirez, and Maria.]] Taking care of Maria is his way of trying to atone for that.
* BackStory: Gives one for [[spoiler:Ramirez]].
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: It's implied that "Doc" is just a nickname, given as he introduces himself by saying that's just what everyone called him and his name is in quotations on his character page in the manual. Even so, we never learn his real name.
* EpiphanyTherapy: Somewhat subverted, as it takes pretty much the entire game for him to come to terms with his past.
* GuiltComplex: A mild example, as he does blame [[spoiler:Ramirez's mistakes on himself.]]
* HiddenDepths: Was previously a member of the Valuan Armada, and, even more surprisingly, was once a good friend of [[spoiler:Ramirez. He's later shown to feel a large amount of guilt for the way Ramirez, Maria, and Piastol's lives have ended up.]]
* MyGreatestFailure: He blames [[spoiler:Ramirez's HeroicBSOD and subsequent FaceHeelTurn over the fact that he wasn't able to stop him from taking his argument to Galcian, which spurred on the events that led to Mendosa's death and Ramirez's siding with Galcian]].
