!The Ardygun Family
A family of "Trailers", a catch-all term in ''Super Robot Wars W'' referring to people who are hired to perform any duty in space other than salvage and combat (but that won't stop them from doing either if the job calls for it), the Ardyguns operate aboard their spaceship ''[[CoolShip Valstork]]''. They are close associates and friends of [[Manga/MobileSuitGundamSEEDAstray Lowe Gear and the "Junk Guild"]].

Main protagonist of ''W'', 16 year-old Kazuma is the only son of Blessfield Ardygun. An extremely HotBlooded boy, Kazuma is determined to get rid of the common stereotype that Trailers are no different than SpacePirates, alongside making a name for himself as a Trailer, like his father has in his youth. On Blessfield's request, Kazuma writes in a journal daily, recording all of the events that have transpired. [[TheWorldIsAlwaysDoomed When the Earth Sphere is threatened by multiple extraterrestrial prescenes]], Kazuma and his family are recruited by the "[[Anime/GaoGaiGar Gutsy Geoid Guard]]", the "[[Anime/TekkamanBlade Space Knights]]" and the "[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Preventers]]", with assistance from the "[[Anime/MazingerZ Photon Reasearch Institute]]", "[[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Mithril]]" and the "[[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Negal Heavy Industries]]", to form "Wärter". Unfortunately, the group is disbanded when the ''Nadesico'' battleship is crippled [[spoiler:and Blessfield is declared "missing-in-action"]] following an encounter with Inference and the mysterious Database. [[spoiler:[[HeroicBSOD The loss of his father was enough for Kazuma to leave his family]] and join with the mercenary "[[Manga/MobileSuitGundamSEEDAstray Serpent Tail]]", going by the alias "Kite"]].

[[TimeSkip Six months later]], "Neue Wärter" is reorganized from the remnants of Wärter, as a response to multiple events, such as the "[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Bloody Valentine Incident]]", the invasion of hte [[Anime/TekkamanBlade Radam]] and the threat of the [[Anime/DetonatorOrgun Evoluders]]. Kazuma rejoins his former allies with Serpent Tail and newcomers Junk Guild and the ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Archangel]]'' battleship, alongside [[spoiler:[[DefectorFromDecadence defectors]] "Regulate" and Aria Advance of the Database]].

Kazuma begins using the "Valhawk", a TransformingMecha [[BrotherSisterTeam with his younger sister Mihiro serving as his co-pilot]]. The machine is powered by a "Proton Drive" and is capable of combining with the ''Valstork'' to form the "Valguard". When [[spoiler:"Applicant" of the Database defects to Neue Wärter]], the Valguard can combine with [[spoiler:Aria's "Arm Arcus" and Applicant's "Arm Stoma"]] to become the "Valzacard". The following tropes apply to Kazuma and his HumongousMecha:
* TheAce: Post-TimeSkip Kazuma
* AlphaStrike: Valhawk's "Jade Flowsion".
* Main/AncestralWeapon: The ''Valstork'' and Valhawk were handed down generation after generation in the Ardygun family, with no one knowing where it really comes from. [[spoiler:It was Blessfield who built them, with some help from extraterrestrials after being sent back in time ''15 billion years ago'' into the '''previous universe''']].
* ArmedLegs: The Valhawk has a pair of "Heat Edge" spikes on top of its feet that form the tip of its nose when it transforms into its "Air Force" mode. It uses them in its "Beam Shot Launcher" and "[[LaserBlade Ray Blade]]" attacks, and in the latter, [[IncendiaryExponent the Heat Edge is ignited]].
* BerserkButton: Pirates, but also implying that Trailers are a form of pirates. [[ParentalAbandonment This is due to his mother Yumi Ardygun being killed during a pirate attack]].
* {{BFS}}: Valzacard's "Dimension Breaker", where it wields the [[spoiler:Arm Arcus]] in its "Sword Mode" as a sword hilt to generate a blade of crystal energy. The power of the attack is amplified by [[spoiler:Regulate]], which allows it to break apart the walls of dimensions.
* BigBrotherMentor: To [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Kira Yamato]]
* {{Bishounen}}: Post-TimeSkip, to the point of being YoungerThanHeLooks
* BrotherSisterTeam
* ButtMonkey: The ''W'' {{Yonkoma}}s don't treat him kindly
* ChefOfIron: Post-TimeSkip, the first thing he's asked to do after his return to the ''Valstork'' is to cook for the crew, because he was the most experienced chef of the crew.
* ChickMagnet: Ironically, despite not being in a relationship throughout ''W'', he's really good at talking with the girls of Neue Wärter, especially post-TimeSkip. Something of a subversion though because not many of them really fall in love with him.
* CombinationAttack: "Proton Cannon Focus", where the Valhawk uses the "Dual Proton Cannons" of the ''Valstork'' to unleash a WaveMotionGun. In essence, three of the four attacks of the Valzacard are also this, since they use the [[spoiler:Arm Arcus and Arm Stoma]].
* CombinedEnergyAttack: Valzacard's "EXA Nova Shoot Over"
* CombiningMecha: Valguard and Valzacard
* EleventhHourSuperpower, StoryBreakerPower: [[spoiler:The Valzacard is only usable near the end of part two of ''W''. Even if the player doesn't bother to upgrade the Valhawk, whose upgrades carryover to the Valzacard, it's still one of the strongest units towards the end of the game]].
* {{Expy}}: The Valhawk seems to be an expy of the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha R-1]] and by extension, to the [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]. Similar weapons, especially to the latter (Beam Rifle, Vulcans, [[LaserBlade Ley Sabers]]), aesthetics and[[TransformingMecha the ability to transform into a plane]] show obvious inspiration, but the addition of [[ArmedLegs the Heat Edges]] and [[BadassNormal having no specialized super-pilot systems]] and [[WeakButSkilled relying on the pilot's skill alone]] make it different.
** Compare the Valzacard to the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Super Robot Type-X Altered "Banpreios"]]; bonus points for the fact that at the end of each unit's respective game, neither one [[spoiler:has unlocked its true capabilities yet]].
* ForkliftFu: In one early mission, Kazuma fights a [[LightningBruiser Tekkaman]] with an industrial power loader, and somehow doesn't die instantly.
* GenerationXerox: Post-TimeSkip Kazuma looks like a younger, non-PermaStubble version of Blessfield. {{Lampshaded}} by the multiple members of Neue Wärter.
* [[spoiler:HeroicBSOD]]
* HotBlooded: Actually, Kazuma ''learns'' to be this over the course of ''W''. Near the beginning, he's overwhelmed by the attitudes of other characters like [[Anime/GaoGaiGar Guy Shishioh]], [[Anime/MazingerZ Kouji Kabuto]], and [[strike:[[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Jiro Yamada]]]] [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Gai Daigoji]]; by the end, he's on par with the best of them.
* HotWings: Valhawk's "Heat Edge Exploder"
* HumongousMecha: The Valhawk is roughly a 30-meter tall, medium-sized machine, but the Valzacard towers at over 212 meters, making it one of the largest original mecha in [=SRW=] history. By contrast, the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsDestiny Geant Chevalier]] is 110 meters ''long'', and more than half of its length is its lance-like {{BFS}}.
* InstantRunes: Part of the Valzacard's EXA Nova Shoot Over's "[[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Dynamic Kill]]" animation
* JackOfAllStats: The Valhawk is fairly mobile, but not extraordinarily powerful (though on par with other {{Real Robot}}s), but strong enough to be effective at all ranges, has all three basic defensive abilities and has the transformable Air Force mode for added movement. While not great in any aspect, unlike most units in ''W'', it has no real weaknesses.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Bullet Striker" (pre-TimeSkip), "Sail On Future" (post-TimeSkip) and "Just One Chance" (during Valzacard's EXA Nova Shoot Over)
* PlotRelevantAgeUp
* ThePowerOfLove: In this case, ''familial'' love, which leads to...
** AloneAmongTheCouples, UnluckyEverydude: Kazuma has the dubious honor of being the first original to have the "Love" Spirit Command, yet ''not'' be in a relationship. He spends a good portion of ''W'' bemoaning this.
* RealityWarper: Valzacard
* ShipTease: Has some with [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Ryoko Subaru]] and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Flay Alster]], to the point where Kira asks him for tips to deal with the latter.
* SwordsAkimbo: In the Valhawk's Ray Blade attack, it uses one of this weapon, but follows up with an additional Ray Blade stored in its knee for DualWielding.
* TenMinuteRetirement
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Deliveres one to [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Natarle Badigruel]] after she reappears as captain of the ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Dominion]]'' battleship
* ThereWillBeToiletPaper: Judging by the bandage on his face, Kazuma consistently cuts himself while shaving in the exact same spot throughout the entire 21-month span of ''W''.
* TookALevelInBadass: As Horis Horion points out after Kazuma rejoins the ''Valstork'', he "left as a child, but returned as a man".
* TrainingFromHell: At the hands of [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Melissa Mao]] and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Lucrezia Noin]]
* WeakButSkilled: Kazuma's stats are slightly above average for a real robot pilot; unfortunately, he has no stat-increasing abilities nor does the Valhawk have an unique ability to cover them. However, he makes up for it by having the best native skill set of any series protagonist in the game ("Sword Cut" [[note]]Unit can negate melee attacks; activates based on skill stat[[/note]], "Gun Down" [[note]]Unit can shoot down missile-based attacks; activates based on skill stat[[/note]], "Shield" [[note]]Unit automatically reduces damage without selecting the "defend" option if counterattacking; activates based on skill stat[[/note]], "Support Attack" [[note]]Pilot can provide offensive support to an adjacent ally[[/note]], "Support Defend" [[note]]Pilot can provided defensive support to an adjacent ally[[/note]] and "Combo Attack" [[note]]Pilot can attack multiple enemy units placed adjacent to one another[[/note]]). You can invoke this by pumping up his "Skill" stat to make him even more of a defensive powerhouse, being untouchable due solely to outclassing basically anything in the game.
** MagikarpPower: The Valhawk quickly gets outclassed by numerous {{Game Breaker}}s, with its saving grace its upgrades being able to carryover to the Valguard, which receives a boost in power and is matched up with many units, until the later parts of the TimeSkip. [[spoiler:Once the Valzacard is available, it's one of the best units in the game]].

!! Blessfield Ardygun

A former SpacePirate, who had many run-ins with law enforcement agents such as [[Anime/TekkamanBlade Heinrich Freeman]] and [[Anime/GaoGaiGar Kotaro Taiga]], 45 year-old Blessfield at one point clashed with Taiga over the same woman named Yumi, who would become Blessfield's wife. After some unspecified time, he gave up the life of a pirate, and they became Trailers. Since then, Blessfield has fathered four children: Shihomi, Akane, Kazuma and Mihiro. Known as "the legendary Trailer", his reputation has garnered him the nickname "Hawkeye".

[[spoiler:Blessfield is from Mars, and like all Martians, he has the ability to initiate "[[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Boson Jump]]", which allows instantaneously travel through space and time with the help of "Chulip Crystals". In many cases, the "Jumper" may even wind up going backwards through time. During a major battle with Inference and the Database, Blessfield instinctively protects Kazuma from an explosion by using a Boson Jump, but accidentally sends himself back 15 billion years into the past (shortly before the Big Crunch that proceeded the Big Bang that created the ''W'' universe). Stranded, Blessfield nearly loses all hope until a chance meeting with [[{{Precursors}} an ancient civilization called the "E's"]], teaching him the importance of memories. Working alongside them, Blessfield creates the "Knowledge Records" and the "Record Plant", inevitably bringing the Database to life. The ''Valstork'' would be his final legacy, intended to be handed down to his ancestors in the future, 15 billion years later]].
* BigGood: Shares this with Taiga; [[spoiler:this traits is carried on well after his apparent death in the form of Applicant]].
* BrickJoke: According to Kazuma, his mother Yumi was a famous masked Trailer woman. In addition, Blessfield's description of his wife practically screams CharClone. [[spoiler:When he created Applicant and Regulate, he inverted the position with Applicant wearing a mask, thereby making a CharClone based on himself, while the mask-less Regulate is based entirely on Yumi]].
* TheCaptain
* [[spoiler:CrazyPrepared]]: [[spoiler:Blessfield knew that sooner or later the Database will become a threat to other civilizations and cultures in the new universe, thus created two failsafes - the first was to copy his personality and a part of his mind into Applicant, making him the "overseer" of the Database in secret, while the second was to create the ''Valstork'' with the ability to combine with the Arm units, provided that two Database personalities "break down" from the rest of them]].
* CrutchCharacter: Blessfield helms the ''Valstork'' with three other characters, meaning an exceptionally large list of Spirit Commands to use, a MAP weapon for the ''Valstork'', good stats and Blessfield's own superb set of Spirit Commands surprisingly filled with a lot of them that are usually earned late-game. He's likely one of the best battleship commanders in [=SRW=] and for good reason: [[spoiler:he's only playable in the first part of ''W''; by the second part, the ''Valstork'' by itself is useless when it can combine with the Valhawk to form the more powerful Valguard, and he's replaced by Kazuma, who gets the best list of Spirit Commands to use with '''six pilots''' when the Valzacard is available]].
* FakeSpecialAttack: Supposedly, Blessfield has 2000 special techniques, but they're all mundane and basic. Some examples include "[[StealthHiBye Hiding in the Clouds]]", "Kidnapping", "[[ChangeTheUncomfortableSubject Reversed Grudge]]" and "[[spoiler:[[PlayingPossum Playing Dead]]]]".
* GoodParents
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Departure ~ To the Endless Sea of Stars"
* [[spoiler:PosthumousCharacter]]: A complicated version of this post-TimeSkip
* RedBaron: "Hawkeye"

!!Mihiro Ardygun
[[caption-width-right:250:[[labelnote:Click here]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/62e3ae4c16c43dc6c5858a1b7e5e801e.jpg[[/labelnote]]Click to see her post-TimeSkip]]

The youngest daughter of the Ardygun family, 10 year-old Mihiro is the co-pilot of the Valhawk, who assists with aiming and evasive programs. After the death of their mother Yumi, Kazuma was the one to take care of her, as the rest of the family was too busy with their Trailer duties. She's very attached to her older brother.
* BrotherSisterTeam
* [[spoiler:BootstrappedLeitmotif]]: [[spoiler:When she pilots the Valhawk by herself, she uses her sister Shihomi's {{Leitmotif}}]].
* IdiotHair: She is actually pretty smart though.
* LittleMissBadass: [[spoiler:Since Kazuma wasn't with them, Mihiro had to use the Valhawk alone to defend the ''Valstork'' against the Radam. She eventually gets herself into a mess when fighting a group of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Moebius mobile armors]] because she [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman didn't want to kill fellow human beings]]]].
* PlotRelevantAgeUp
* TokenMiniMoe

!!Shihomi Ardygun
The eldest Ardygun child, 22 year-old Shihomi serves as the main operator of the ''Valstork''. [[spoiler:After Blessfield's disappearance, she becomes the captain of the battleship and head of the family]].
* BridgeBunny
** [[spoiler:TheCaptain]]: Post-TimeSkip
* EyesAlwaysShut: Though according to one {{Yonkoma}}, she opens them when deep in thought.
* [[spoiler:{{Leitmotif}}]]: [[spoiler:"Determination ~ Pride and Memory in the Heart", once she takes over the ''Valstork'']]
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Slapped Kazuma when he was confused after realizing that [[spoiler:Applicant might be their father]].
* TeamMom

!!Akane Ardygun

The second oldest daughter of the Ardygun family, 20 year-old Akane is a rather cheerful, but stern woman. Aboard the ''Valstork'', she is the weapons operator. According to Akane, she prefers a tough man, and her gullible personality makes her an easy target for Horis' teasing. She's also troubled about her lack of a sizeable chest, something Horis constantly jokes about.
* ACupAngst: Why she hadn't joined [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Ibis Douglas]] in the related MemeticMutation is anyone's guess.
* BridgeBunny
* {{Fangirl}}: Of [[Anime/GaoGaiGar Uppo-kun]]; she even has a ''hug pillow'' (or at least, a large stuffed animal version) of it. This gets played with as [[spoiler:Akane's nearly retcons the appearance of [[Anime/GaoGaiGar EI-13, the Zonder]] based off of Uppo-kun. Then Sōsuke Sagara shows up as "Bonta-kun" and [[NiceJobBreakingItHero ruins the moment]]]].
* LethalChef: So much that the first thing Horis asks of Kazuma post-TimeSkip is to replace her as chef of the ''Valstork''.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: She drowns every kind of food in mayonnaise
* {{Tsundere}}: Type B

!!Horis Horian

24 year-old Horis is currently employed by the Ardygun family as a freelancer. Knowledgeable about many things, he is the navigational operator of the ''Valstork'' and has excellent controls with the battleship. [[spoiler:Horis is actually an intelligence operative from the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Organization of Zodiac]], who infiltrated the ''Valstork'' to investigate its capabilities and technology, but decided to stay behind rather than report to his superiors after growing too attached and fond of the Ardygun family and how well they treated him]].
* [[spoiler:BecomingTheMask]]
* [[spoiler:TheMole]]
* [[spoiler:OfficialCouple]]: [[spoiler:In the ending, he proposes to Akane; she accepts]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is it "Horian", "Horion" or "Horaian"? While the latter is closest to the katakana spelling of his name, it sounds phonetically odd. Most players stick with either "Horian" or "Horion".


A general-purpose robot on the ''Valstork'', Carret acts as the communications and signal analysis officer.
* BlackBox: [[spoiler:Carret contains data on the origins of the ''Valstork'']]
* CaptainErsatz: Of the [[Franchise/{{Gundam}} Haro]] and [[Anime/CombattlerV Ropet]]
* RobotBuddy


The "Scribes of Knowledge", more commonly referred to as the Database, they are the main antagonists of ''Super Robot Wars W''. Originally created to seek out and preserve all knowledge in the universe [[spoiler: by a civilization called the E's of the previous universe, who were at that point waiting for the Big Crunch to occur, the Database were inspired to do so by Blessfield Ardygun, teaching them the importance of memories, after he was [[StableTimeLoop thrown back in time 15 billion years into the past during a battle with the Database, the very same group he helped create]]]]. Led by "Inference", with "Critic", Applicant and Regulate as his advisers, and Aria Advance as their field commander, the Database seek to go from civilization to civilization, assimilating all the knowledge each possess, then eliminate them to make that knowledge rarer and more valuable.

Tropes associated with multiple characters of the Database:
* AIIsACrapshoot: Beings created [[spoiler:by the {{Precursors}} of the previous universe to store all knowledge and let their civilizations survive in some fashion? [[SarcasmMode Well, of course they won't turn evil]]]]!
** [[spoiler:Critic is moreso than other members of the Database: it was ''he'' who suggested they destroy the recorded civilizations. Secondly, Critic is the only Database individual created ''without'' emotions or a personality]].
* CaptainErsatz: An artificial intelligence that wishes to control all known information in the universe, and kill billions to keep that knowledge secret. Are we talking about the Database or ComicBook/{{Brainiac}}?
* TheDreaded: Despite the EvilVsEvil nature of enemy factions in ''W'', all are deathly fearful of the Database, with good reason.
* [[spoiler:EleventhHourRanger]]: [[spoiler:Inference and Applicant in the second half of the final scenario of a NewGamePlus]]
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn]]: [[spoiler:Applicant, Regulate and Aria]]
* MusicalSpoiler: If you listen closely, the Database {{Leitmotif}} "Eternal Memory" is a rearrangement of Kazuma's "Bullet Striker". [[spoiler:Now consider what Inference is to Kazuma]].
* PlanetLooters
* [[spoiler:UncannyFamilyResemblance]]: [[spoiler:With the exception of Aria and Critic, the Database characters are modeled after the Ardygun family - Inference to Kazuma, Applicant to Blessfield and Regulate to Yumi]].
* WeWait: They lie in wait for eight months before commencing their plan.


The commander of the Record Plant, Inference is the leader of the Database, piloting the "Scentia". Calm and collected, he has an unusual tendency to act irrationally whenever angered.
* BigBad
* ItAmusedMe: Hearing that [[Anime/GoLion Sinclyne]] would sell out his father to save his own skin lets him look the other way about executing him, perhaps the only non-EvilLaugh he had in 10,000 years.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Knowledge Recorder" [[spoiler:and "Eternal Memory", if he is the FinalBoss]].
* NotSoStoic: His original personality may have been TheStoic, but once he [[spoiler: changed his name to Inference]], [[AxCrazy the slightest thing can set him off]]. [[OmnicidalManiac He also takes a liking to exterminating civilizations after their data is recorded]], and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking he gains a pretty foul mouth to boot]].
* PutTheLaughterInSlaughter
--> "Hahahahahahahahahahahahaa!! Vanish, bitches!!"
* WaveMotionGun: Scientia's "Salus Lumen"

!!Aria Advance

With a physical appearance 16 year-old, Aria is one of the frontline commanders of the Database, piloting a custom Arm Arcus. She sees Applicant as a paternal figure, even addressing him as "papa". Due to the mechanical nature of the Database, [[NoSocialSkills Aria is socially inept at establishing relationships]], though during her encounters with Mihiro, she grows oddly attached and fond of her, yet cold and callous towards Kazuma.
* BeamSpam: Arm Arcus' "Totoum Schlopetum", combined with a WaveMotionGun at the end. The attack features both over-the-shoulder and hip-mounted cannons, which bears more than a passing resemblance to the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Freedom's "Hi-MAT Full Burst" attack]].
* [[spoiler:CloningBlues]]: [[spoiler:Unlike the other Database characters, Aria is an OppositeSexClone of Kazuma, more specifically a "personality clone" of him. This explains why she feels more affectionate for Mihiro and depises Kazuma, because she wishes to be rid of him so she can replace him in the Ardygun family]].
* DeadlyDisc: Arm Arcus' "Lumen Circulus"
* DoppelgangerAttack: Arm Arcus' "Luna Gladius", with a GoryDiscretionShot.
* EvilLaugh: [[spoiler: Pre-HeelFaceTurn]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: It's hard to notice, but during one scenario where Aria is forced to fight alongside Neue Wärter, notice how Aria's stats and Spirit Commands are idential to Kazuma. This is long before [[spoiler:TheReveal she is his opposite sex personality clone]].
* {{Gainaxing}}: During her SuperMovePortraitAttack
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Soul Stranger"
* MesACrowd: The Arm Arcus can split itself into five solid copies for short durations during its attacks. [[spoiler:Presumably, this ability is integral to how it transforms into the Valzacard's sword and bow, considering the tremendous difference in size between the two]].
* NoSocialSkills
* SendInTheClones: Male clones of Aria called "Deceiver" are made to pilot mass-produced versions of the Arm Arcus and Arm Stora [[spoiler:after Aria and Regulate defect]].
* WaveMotionTuningFork: A literal examples, as the blades of the Arm Arcus look like tuning forks which double for melee use.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair


The one in charge of managing the Database, Applicant uses the "Valarm" first before replacing it with the Arm Stoma.
* CharClone
* [[spoiler:LukeIAmYourFather]]: [[spoiler:He is an android based on the mind and memories of Blessfield Ardygun]]
* MaskPower
* PlayingPossum: How he defeats the Valguard. [[spoiler:Taken straight from Blessfield's playbook of 2000 special techniques]].
* RammingAlwaysWorks: Arm Stoma's "Linear Lector" involves it creating two [[HardLight copies of the Arm Arcus]] which hold down the enemy while it charges the prongs on the bow of the Arm Stoma and rams all three of them.
* RocketPunch: Valarm's "Remote Drill Burst" combined with ThisIsADrill
* TheEngineer: Considered to be the Database's mechanic
* WaveMotionGun: Arm Stoma's "Latum Ladius"


Acting as an enforcer for the Database, Regulate heads to fight in the frontlines to support Applicant.
* BuxomIsBetter: At least in the {{fanart}}, Regulate is considered well-endowed.
* {{Foil}}: To Applicant, as they always fight alongside one another. [[spoiler:More or less a BattleCouple, since she's based on Blessfield's wife Yumi]].
* OnlySaneMan: Her designated role, hence [[MeaningfulName a regulator]]. [[spoiler:When she was aware there was something wrong with the Database's methodology, she defects along with Aria]].
* [[spoiler:TeamMom]]: [[spoiler:Post-HeelFaceTurn, Regulate develops a deep maternal personality]].
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Purple hair


An advisor for Inference, Critic endorses his actions and the Database's. However, his personality often clashes for playing second fiddle to Inference, thus is often suspected by other members of the Database to have ulterior motives.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[spoiler:"Eternal Memory", if he is the FinalBoss]]
* [[spoiler:TheStarscream]]
* [[spoiler:TakingYouWithMe]]
* TreacherousAdvisor: Played with, [[spoiler:until it goes straight during NewGamePlus]]
* [[spoiler:TrueFinalBoss]]: [[spoiler:Only on NewGamePlus]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:In the final scenario of NewGamePlus, Critic reveals he was only keeping Inference around because he didn't know how to control the Sapientia]].
