[[folder: Heroines]]
!!!Yuka Takeuichi
[[TheHero The heroine]] and [[TheProtagonist protagonist]] of ''Variable Geo''. She's 17 and a practitioner of Kyokushin Karate, since childhood. She currently works as a combat waitress at Hanna Miller's and enters the VG Tournament, not for the prize money and real estate, but in [[SpiritedCompetitor the spirit of competition]] and learning more about herself as a martial artist. She is voiced by Creator/KotonoMitsuishi (Japanese) and Edi Patterson (English).
* [[AllLovingHero All Loving Heroine]]: Yuka is a compassionate young woman, who firmly believes people can form unshakable bonds with their hearts [[FireForgedFriends and their fists.]]
* BestFriend: Satomi has been her bff since childhood. They don't get to see each other often these days, due to Satomi's hectic work schedule, but their bond remains as strong as ever.
* BirdsOfAFeather: She and Satomi, share a lot in common: they're both [[OneOfTheBoys tomboys]], each has a strong interest in martial arts (see the FriendlyRivalry entry), they both work as combat waitresses, and they each strive to compete in the VG tournament.
* {{Bokukko}}: Yuko often refers to herself by using the male pronoun, "boku", in the Japanese subs.
* BoobsOfSteel: She has the largest bust of the cast and the fighting ability you'd expect, as per the trope. But not without consequence:
** DCupDistress: They're already big to begin with and they're still growing, which she realizes when another of her uniforms becomes too tight in the chest again; much to her dismay.
** GagBoobs: Manami refers to Yuka's boobs as "airbags" and enjoys groping them, because of their size and [[{{Gainaxing}} how bouncy they are]], or simply bouncing the back of her head against them while they're riding with Jun.
* ChildhoodFriends: With her bff, Satomi.
* CombinedEnergyAttack: After freeing Satomi from [[spoiler: Miranda]]'s control, they unleash both their ultimate attacks at once to destroy the cyber drive; taking [[spoiler: Miranda]] along with it.
* CurbstompBattle: Yuka gets utterly thrashed, along with Jun and Manami, when she returns to her dojo and finds all her students [[EverybodysDeadDave beaten to death]], by [[spoiler: Damian]]'s SuperpoweredEvilSide. The girls survive thanks to the mysterious [[BadassGrandpa old master's]] [[BigDamnHeroes timely arrival.]]
* [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength Doesn't Know Her Own Strength]]: Literally, which [[spoiler: Damian]] lampshades during their second fight. He tells Yuka that she's stronger than she realizes and was determined to see her true power. In the end, he forced her to use [[spoiler: [[{{Shoryuken}} Soryu Gekki]]]], which kills him, though it hadn't been her intention.
* EnlightenmentSuperpowers: Yuka achieves this state near the end of the final episode, when she faces [[spoiler: Damian's SuperpoweredEvilSide again]]. She lets go with her feelings and enters a zen-like calm, which allows her to instinctively evade his attack and counter with a [[OffhandBackhand pirouetting backhand]] that sends him flying.
* TheEmpath: Yuka forms a spiritual connection with her opponents by absorbing their ki while taking their attacks, which allows her to sense whatever's troubling them.
** HeartIsAnAwesomePower[=/=]WarriorTherapist: Once she establishes that, she cleanses them of those negative emotions, by blastig them with her own ki while also returning theirs; essentially reliveing them of those feelings.
* FightingYourFriend[=/=]IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: The series culminates in the eventual showdown between her and Satomi, when she's briefly forced to fight Satomi to free her from [[spoiler: Miranda's]] control.
-->'''Yuka: (determinedly, while untying hair ribbon)''' "Satomi whines a lot and she's stingy. She also says [[SpiritedCompetitor I like fighting too much.]] But she's a good cook, she has a warm smile, and she loves her little brother."
-->'''Yuka: (angrily, at Miranda, after trying her ribbon around her fist)''' "THAT's the Satomi I know... and I'm ''going to'' bring her back! With '''THIS FIST''' [[ThePowerOfFriendship and my feelings!!"]]
* TheForceIsStrongWithThisOne: When she and Jun [[SlowMotionPassBy pass Reimi on the highway]], Yuka feels a cold chill, causing her ki to flare up in response to the malignant energy she senses from her. This prompts Yuka to leap from the back of the bike and attack her, but Reimi counters by [[PowerNullifier nullifying it easily.]]
* FriendlyRivalry: She and Satomi have known each other since childhood and have competed against each other for just as long. They even [[ThePromise made a promise]] to not allow themselves to lose to anyone until they faced each other at the VG tournament.
* [[TheHero The Heroine]][[TheProtagonist /The Protagonist]]: The plot centers around her and her efforts to save Satomi, once she becomes aware that Satomi is being manipulated by [[NebulousEvilOrganization The Jahana Group.]]
* KameHameHadoken: Her signature finisher: "Kikou Dan".
* LetsFightLikeGentlemen: She's all for friendly competition, but despises senseless violence and abuse of one's power.
* OneHitKill: Her [[spoiler: Soryu Gekki]] kills [[spoiler: Damian]]'s [[SuperpoweredEvilSide alter ego]] outright [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67LaGzsjK5k (at: 4:28-4:59).]]
* PowerGlows: Seen just before she unleashes her [[spoiler: Soryu Gekki]], when her body becomes enveloped in a pure white aura.
* PowerLimiter: In the final episode, Yuka reveals that her hair ribbon inhibits her power. But, once she [[PowerLevels removes it...]]
* RapunzelHair: It's long enough that it almost reaches her feet when she unfastens her hair ribbon. Which is why she usually keeps it in a ponytail and, ''even then'', it's still long enough to extend past her waist.
* RyuAndKen: She's essentially "Ryu" to Satomi's "Ken". See the SpiritedCompetitor entry below.
* ShesGotLegs: Seen in the anime's cover art and at multiple points throughout the series, along with plenty of FootFocus thanks to the ankle guards she wears.
* {{Shoryuken}}: Yuka's Soryu Gekki (lit "Shooting Star"), which is so powerful that [[spoiler: it results in a OneHitKill]].
* SpiritedCompetitor: Yuka would make [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Ryu]] proud. The tournament's cash prize and recognition mean little to her. Instead, she lives for the fight and the strives to learn more about herself and others through combat.
* {{Tomboy}}: Yuka [[OneOfTheBoys lives and breathes martial arts]] and [[SpiritedCompetitor loves to compete.]] In her own words, [[WarriorTherapist "it's how she connects with others".]]
* WaveMotionGun: Screw fireballs. Yuka responds to Erina's ultimate attack by unleashing her Kyuukyo Kikou Dan, which is her Kikou Dan on steroids! The blast sends Erina flying, [[ClothingDamage shreds her clothing]], and K.O's her (seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z31t-S6SGwU at 2:04-2:23).]]

!!!Satomi Yajima
The {{Deuteragonist}} and Yuka's childhood friend. Satomi grew up studying Kyokushin Karate under Yuka's grandfather, which is how they became sparring partners. But she's [[PerpetualPoverty fallen on hard times]], since her parents' deaths, leaving her to care for her ill brother, Daisuke, on her own. Once the Jahana Group becomes aware of her hidden power, they manipulate her into entering [[NotJustATournament the VG Tournament.]] She is voiced by Creator/YukoMiyamura (Japanese) and Amber Quinn (English).
* AdaptationalBadass: While a formidable fighter, ''Advanced V.G's'' canon portrayed Satomi's skill level as secondary compared to Yuka's and Reimi's. In the OVA, her fighting capacity is considerably higher, being near equal to Yuka's own and she gains an all new [[LimitBreak ultimate attack]] not seen in any of the games.
* AlwaysSecondBest: Damian's background check on her reveals that Satomi had been undefeated... until she met Yuka. After her first loss to her, Satomi contiuned to lose to her, each time they competed against each other, with each loss chipping away at her confidence until she finally stopped competing altogether, [[CantCatchUp out of fear that she'd never be able to defeat Yuka.]]
* AscendedExtra: In the ''Advanced V.G.'' series, Satomi was [[MinorMajorCharacter a minor character]], having no significance to the plot. The OVA changes this, by exploring her rivalry with Yuka and making her [[LivingMacGuffin a key figure]] in The Jahana Group's plans.
* BeautyMark: Hers is just beneath the corner of her left eye, accentuating [[UnkemptBeauty her natural beauty.]]
* BestFriend: Yuka is the best she's ever had and is always there when Satomi needs her.
* BirdsOfAFeather: See the related entry in Yuka's section.
* BoyishShortHair: She can't afford to properly care for her hair, so it's always short and mussy.
* BodyHorror: After seeing she wasn't powerful enough to defeat [[spoiler: Reimi]], despite the cyber drive's enhancements, [[spoiler: Miranda]] threatens to kill Satomi from within, [[GrandTheftMe unless Yuka surrendered her body to her.]] Then shows she means business by [[spoiler: splitting Satomi's fingernail and making her bleed from the wound]].
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Satomi curbstomps Chiho and Kaori, at separate times, while she's under the cyber drive's influence.
* ChildhoodFriends: With her bff, Yuka.
* CombinedEnergyAttack: As noted in Yuka's section, once Satomi is free of [[spoiler: Miranda]]'s control, she combines her ultimate attack with Yuka's to destroy the cyber drive.
* CoolBigSis: A literal example to her kid brother, Daisuke.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: The othef half of the plot covers Satomi's [[PerpetualPoverty struggles to care for her brother]], her inner conflict regarding her past losses to Yuka, and how she's eventually manipulated by The Jahana Group.
* FashionableAsymmetry: She wears a different skirt as part of her combat uniform. Unlike the one she wears on her job, this one is fashioned into a sarong, with the split seam reaching her left hip.
* FightingYourFriend[=/=]IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: See the related entry in Yuka's section.
* FriendlyRivalry: With Yuka, which is covered in her example section.
* GirlNextDoor: She's [[UnkemptBeauty the 'plainest' looking]] of all the waitresses, having short hair and boyish features, but has a beauty mark on he left cheek along with a naturally athletic figure.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: Whenever she's being influenced by the cyber drive, her eye color changes from grey to [[http://www.bladeandepsilon.com/vgoavcap245.jpg day-glow blue.]]
** MindControlEyes: Once the process is complete, her irises fade completely; leaving her eyes [[http://www.bladeandepsilon.com/vgoavcap305.jpg blank white]], ala [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII M. Bison's.]]
* HealthcareMotivation: Just as Daisuke's condition begins to show signs of improving, The Jahana Group secretly causes it to relapse. Then has Damian offer to cover the costs of the procedure needed to treat it... [[AnOfferYouCantRefuse in exchange for Satomi's cooperation.]]
* KillItWithFire: This is what her ultimate attack [[OneHitKill amounts too]], as Yuuki nearly learned firsthand.
** ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Satomi's final attack is essentially her rendition of [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Kyo Kusanagi's]] "Ura 121 Shiki Ama no Murakumo" HDM; resulting in giant waves of flame racing along the ground at high speed, incinerating everything in their wake (seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbdWdf_WoeU at 22:37-23:03 here).]]
* MacGuffinSuperPerson: She becomes the target of The Jahana Group, once Damian senses [[AlmightyJanitor the enormity of her latent fighting potential]], during Yuka's match with Jun. Which convinced him that she'd make the ideal vessel for [[spoiler: Miranda]].
* MinorLivingAlone: See the PromotionToParent entry.
* OreOnna: In the Japanese subtitled version, she refers to herself using the "ore" pronoun, which is partially [[ShoutOut a nod]] to the fact that her character draws influence from [[Characters/TheKingOfFightersTheRugalSaga Kyo Kusanagi.]]
* PerpetualPoverty: This is the reason she originally wanted to compete in the VG tournament, as the prize money and real estate would easily solve her and her brother's financial problems and give them a better home.
* PlayingWithFire: Whereas Yuka's ki manifests as pure energy, Satomi's ki manifests in the form of flames.
* PromotionToParent[=/=]ParentalSubstitute: At age 16, she's had to look after herself and her kid brother, Daisuke, ever since their parents died in a car accident, years ago.
* ThePromise: She and Yuka swore they'd never allow themselves to lose to anyone until they had the chance to face each other in the VG tournament.
* RyuAndKen: Her friendship with Yuka is portrayed this way, with Satomi filling the "Ken" role, since she has family matters to attend that consume most of her time. Likewise, she's been [[FriendlyRivalry competing with Yuka]] since childhood and they made a vow to face each other someday in the VG tournament - [[http://www.bladeandepsilon.com/vgoavcap034.jpg complete with a fist bump gesture.]]
* ShesGotLegs: Though hers are more athletic in tone. Likewise, she gets plenty of FootFocus since she's the only one, besides Yuka, who fights barefoot.
* SympatheticSentientWeapon: She's left with no choice but to submit herself to Damian's project, which greatly enhances her fighting ability, at the cost of her free will... and [[GrandTheftMe her own body.]]
* {{Tomboy}}: Another trait she shares in common with her friend, though [[BoyishShortHair Satomi's appearance]] makes her a straighter example. Plus, her figure is slightly more athletic than Yuka's.
* UnkemptBeauty: Noted in the GirlNextDoor entry.
* UnwittingPawn: To The Jahana Group, who uses her kid brother and her insecurities, regarding her past losses to Yuka, to manipulate her into joining the tournament. Then subjects her to the "Black Goddess" project with the intent to use her as [[spoiler: Miranda's new vessel]].

!!!Jun Kubota
A former Olympic wrestler, who was disgraced after being [[OldShame banned from competition]] for unnecessarily injuring her opponent, which earned her the nickname:[[NeverLiveItDown "Bone Crusher".]] She's looking to restore her honor and integrity by competiting in the VG ring. She is voiced by Creator/AiOrikasa (Japanese) and Kathryn Feller (English).
* AmazonianBeauty: Jun has [[http://www.animevice.com/jun-kubota/18-28546/all-images/84-197565/kubota_jun/83-719139/ the type of physique]] one would expect of an Olympian class athlete, being tall and semi-muscular. At the same time, she's a dark skinned raven-haired beauty with [[StatuesqueStunner a stunning figure.]]
* AmbiguouslyBrown: It's unknown whether [[http://www.animevice.com/jun-kubota/18-28546/all-images/84-197565/_large_animepaper_scans_variable_geo_sayonala009_0/83-258353/ her complexion]] is her natural skin color, or the result of a really deep tan. Yet, no one makes note of her appearance even though she looks like a foreigner; including having GreenEyes.
* [[TheBigGuy The Big Girl]]: She's the most athletic member of the cast and has the muscle power and stamina you'd expect from a former Olympic wrestling champion.
* BikerBabe: It's how she gets around and how she helps get Yuka from place-to-place during the series.
* BoisterousBruiser: Jun uses a combination of pro wrestling and kubojutsu, making her the most physical combatant competing in the tournament and she's HotBlooded to boot.
* BoobsOfSteel: While not as big as Yuka's, or Erina's, hers are still pretty impressive and she's got the muscle to back 'em.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: She's strong enough to leap over 10ft. into the air, while carrying someone across her shoulders, as seen during her "Kubota Buster". And when she fought [[spoiler: Chiho]] outside the Jahana research facility, she sent her flying across the courtyard with her "Kubota Shuttle"; instantly knocking her unconscious!
* DefeatMeansFriendship: After her defeat, not only does she buddy up with Yuka, she develops a deep respect for her and acknowledges Yuka as being stronger than herself. From then on, she spends the remainder of the series getting to know her and helping her to save Satomi and [[spoiler: Chiho]].
* GreenEyes: Which, in addition to her skin tone, gives her the appearance of a foreigner.
* GroundPunch: Jun's Earth Grazer is near identical to [[VideoGame/FatalFury Terry Bogard's]] [[GratuitousEnglish "POWAH GEEZAH!!"]] The animation sequence is even similar to the scene where Terry uses it against Wolfgang Krauser.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: She enjoys knockin' back brewskies and seems capable of holding her liquor, as she was able to drive perfectly after downing several large mugs of beer.
* HonorBeforeReason: According to the rules, Jun didn't have to strip after her loss to Yuka, since the match was only set at level-4. Meaning, it was a preliminary bout. The penalty only applies at level-3 and above. When Yuka tries to point this out, Jun dismisses it as a weak excuse and said [[AllOrNothing there was no place in VG for mediocrity.]]
* HotBlooded: ...and it shows, especially when she's in the ring. Or if anyone's foolish enough to punch her BerserkButton.
* TheLadette: She likes booze, prides herself on her bikeriding skills, and loves a good scrap.
* [[LeaveHimToMe Leave Her To Me]]: Jun invokes this in the final episode, when she elects to fight [[spoiler: [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Chiho]]]] (though Manami stays behind to help her) so Yuka could move on to to try to save Satomi.
* MartialArtsHeadband: She wears a red one, as part of her waitress uniform.
* MeteorMove: Her "Kubota Buster" is a high-flying backbreaker, which she uses on Yuka during their match.
* ModestyShorts: Her waitress uniform includes [[http://www.animevice.com/jun-kubota/18-28546/all-images/84-197565/kubota_jun/83-719139/ a black pair of biker shorts]] under her skirt, so you [[AvertedTrope don't get to see her undies.]]
* MusclesAreMeaningless: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] (see the CharlesAtlasSuperpower entry).
* StatuesqueStunner: She ties with Erina Goldsmith as one of the tallest women competing in the tournament and has the muscle to back it; [[AmazonianBeauty which compliments her figure.]]
* SuperToughness: Jun can withstand amazing amounts of punishment and continue to fight, which is how [[TheWorfEffect you know she's in trouble]] when [[spoiler: she gets dropped by a single backhand from Damian's SuperpoweredEvilSide, then curbstomps her along with Yuka and Manami]].
* ThisCannotBe: Plainly written on her face, right at the moment Yuka's [[KameHameHadoken Kikou Dan]] overpowers her Earth Grazer attack and floors her.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: As a former Olympic wrestling champion, her fighting style encompasses lariats, bearhugs, and flying backbreakers (i.e. her [[FinishingMove "Kubota Buster"]]).

!!!Erina Goldsmith
As the tournament's lone American entrant, she's also the only foreigner competing in VG. She leads a team [[PlayboyBunny of bunnies]], who not only look up to her, they even carry her around on a throne. But, despite what her seemingly carefree nature would lead you to believe, she's got a DarkAndTroubledPast and a major chip on her shoulder. She is voiced by Creator/YukoNagashima (Japanese).
* ButNotTooForeign: She's actually American of Japanese descent, and has spent most of her life in Japan. She was often bullied because of her naturally blonde hair color, when she was younger (see the DarkAndTroubledPast entry below).
* CombatPragmatist: Erina keeps a lighter with her, which she uses as a makeshift flamethrower, and wears a pair of brass knuckles which helps her manipulate her ki, as well as augmenting her striking power.
* CoolBigSis: To her team of bunnies, who all look up to her and act as her cheering section. They even strip along with her, after Yuka defeats her.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Her mixed heritage and hair color [[http://www.bladeandepsilon.com/vgoavcap203.jpg caused her to be bullied]], when she was younger. Erina eventually became bitter and retaliated by [[spoiler: brutally beating her tormentors within an inch of their lives, and went on to become [[http://www.bladeandepsilon.com/vgoavcap205.jpg a juvenile deliquent]]]]. She eventually grew out of it, but still harbored lingering resentment along with anxiety over [[spoiler: her grandmother, who'd she had left back in America]].
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Her loss to Yuka relieved her of her anxiety and anger, for which she expresses her gratitude to Yuka.
* FantasticNuke: Her ultimate attack is a massive column of flame that strikes the opponent from directly above, which strikes with explosive power.
* ForeignFanservice: As the lone American entrant, [[PhenotypeStereotype she's blonde and busty]], keeps a lighter tucked between her boobs, and parades around in a PlayboyBunny costume. So does her team.
* GagBoobs: She's got a pair of melons that rival Yuka's and [[http://www.animevice.com/erina-goldsmith/18-28545/all-images/84-19756/elena0p/83-460728/ always keeps a lighter tucked snuggly in her cleavage]]... which is more than a little suggestive.
** BreastExpansion: it's implied (outright stated actually) she has implants. The first time the other heroines lay eyes on Erina, one exclaims [[FakeBoobs "Those CAN NOT be real!"]] Manami, specifically. [[ACupAngst You can practically taste the jealousy...]]
* {{Gainaxing}}: With melons like hers, it'd be impossible not to, which is seen throughout her match with Yuka. Especially when she blasts Erina with [[spoiler: her Kyuukyo Kikou Dan]]; causing Erina's boobs to jiggle before it sends her flying across the ring.
* GracefulLoser[=/=]FunPersonified: She doesn't get upset when she realizes Manami tricked her into fighting Yuka. Instead, she treats it like a good joke. Then she and her team happily [[FlungClothing shed their costumes en masse.]]
* NoNudityTaboo: Unlike the other entrants, Erina had no problem with stripping in public. After her loss to Yuka, she and her team [[FunPersonified happily]] [[FlungClothing flung their spandex]] into the air.
* NoSell: Erina was resilient enough to casually deflect Yuka's Kikou Dan, by blocking it with her forearm.
* PhenotypeStereotype: She's American, so ''[[SarcasmMode naturally]]'' she's tall, blonde and busty.
* PlayboyBunny: Obviously, look at [[http://www.animevice.com/erina-goldsmith/18-28545/all-images/84-19756/elena0p/83-460732/ what she's wearing.]]
* PlayingWithFire: Which is what the lighter she keeps between her boobs is for. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z31t-S6SGwU As seen during her match with Yuka]], she can create a flamethrower effect and, once the flame is released, she can separate it into fireballs that she can control at will. Or unleash her power all at once, in a massive pillar of fire from above.
* StatuesqueStunner: At 5'8", she's one of the tallest women competing in the tournament. She's also got a dynamite bod that's accentuated with hints of feminine muscle, a nice rack, and a great pair of legs.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Before moving to Japan, that is. But she gets better, [[WarriorTherapist thanks to Yuka.]]

!!!Kaori Yanase
An 18 year old computer technician and practicioner of Tae Kwon Do, she's one of the top competitors participating in the VG tournament. She has a personal score to settle with Reimi Jahana, the two-time defending and current champion. She is voiced by Creator/YukaImai (Japanese) and Katherine Catmull (English).
* AwesomeByAnalysis: Kaori uses her personal computer and analytical skills to guage her opponents, based on their past performances and latent aura readout. Her assessments are usually accurate, with little margin for error.
** [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]]: For the aforementioned reason, which she likely gained from her experience as both a computer technician and a martial artist.
* [[CuriosityKilledTheCast Curiosity Killed the Cat]]: Damian tricks her into participating in an unsanctioned match against Satomi by using [[FatalFlaw her interest in gathering data on the other fighters]] to his advantage. He tells her the match would be strictly off the record [[BlatantLies for the sake of their mutual interest in sharing information.]] Kaori had been hoping to gauge Satomi, before their official bout, so she accepts. It was a mistake that nearly gets her killed.
* DivingSave: Kaori pulls one just as [[spoiler: Yuka was about to surrender her body [[BigBad to Miranda]]]].
* GlassesPull[=/=]DontLookBack: After winning her first match, Kaori solemnly removes her glasses and averts her gaze so she wouldn't have to see what was taking place behind her. See the IWarnedYou entry.
* ItsPersonal: See the 'Never Live it Down'/'Old Shame' entry on the [[YMMV/VariableGeo YMMV page.]]
* KickChick: She's got long legs and practices Tae Kwon Do in skin-tight leggings and a miniskirt. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Bj_k9WLc-I Need we say more?]]
* {{Meganekko}}: As seen [[http://www.bladeandepsilon.com/vgcvc016.jpg here.]]
* NerdsAreSexy: She's a looker [[HelloNurse with a body to match.]]
* OneHitKO[=/=]SingleStrokeBattle: Invoked in her opening match versus her unnamed opponent, during the first episode. After dodging her attack, Kaori responds with a single attack that ends the fight.
** IWarnedYou: Once it's over, Kaori reminds her opponent that the match was at level-1 and how she tried to warn her about [[ADateWithRosiePalms the penalty for losing.]] She [[DontLookBack averts her eyes]] when the other girl tries to flee and gets caught by members of the tournament committee who [[spoiler: enforce the penalty by drugging her with an aphrodisiac]].
* ProperLady: In the modern sense, rather than the traditional Victorian manner.
** Kaori's manner of speech is somewhat prim and her style of dress is decidedly feminine, outside of combat. She's one of the few characters to not have any underlying motives, nor does she harbor any ill-intent towards anyone: even where Reimi is concerned[[note]]while Kaori ''was'' humiliated by her defeat, she has no animosity towards Reimi and merely sees defeating her as milestone on her path to self-discovery and enters VG to prove herself[[/note]].
* RapunzelHair: Hers isn't as long as Yuka's and Reimi's, but it's still past her waist.
* RazorWind: Delivered with a ki powered kick that shears the apron off of her opponent and sends her flying across the ring.
* ShesGotLegs: [[http://www.animevice.com/kaori-yanase/18-32723/ Check 'em out]], 'cuz you'll see plenty of them thanks to her fighting style.
** StockingFiller: She wears a pair of dark skin-tight leggings and ankle guards, like Yuka and Satomi.
* TheWorfEffect: Kaori winds up on the receiving end when she accepts Damian's proposal to participate in an unsanctioned spar against Satomi[[note]]who's fighting abilities had been enhanced by the cyber drive project[[/note]]. Kaori was completely outclassed and lasts little more than a few seconds, before Satomi flattens her with a single spin kick that leaves her in a crumpled heap on the floor.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Hers is purple, making her the only other character besides Manami (pink) and Reimi (silvery white) to have an unusual hair color.

!!!Manami Kusunoki
She ties with Satomi as being the youngest entrant in the tournament, at age 16. Though she looks, acts, and dresses more like she's 12. However, she's well aware that she's outmatched by the competition, which is why she has absolutely no intention of fighting to begin with. Instead, she plans to cheat her way to the top by tricking others into fighting her matches for her. She is voiced by Creator/IkueOtani (Japanese) and Larissa Wolcott (English).
* ACupAngst: Despite her antics, she's both envious of and impressed by Yuka and Jun's endowments, which makes her self-conscious about her own [[UsefulNotes/{{Pettanko}} which have hardly begun to develop.]]
** Made all the more disheartening for her when she meets Erina...and her two silicone buddies...for the first time.
* AllThereInTheManual: Her character bio in the ''"Complete Visual Collection"'' artbook mentions she's an IdolSinger. You'd never know it, since it isn't seen in the OVA.
* CheerfulChild[=/=]GenkiGirl: Manami's older than she looks, acts, sounds, or dresses, but the trope still applies. She's almost always upbeat and energetic, and rarely loses her smile.
* LetsGetDangerous: She's [[PluckyComicRelief a goofball]] and a cheat, but she has a moment of brilliance during the fight with [[spoiler: Chiho]].
* LeeroyJenkins: She deliberately invokes this, as a diversion tactic, by appearing to charge [[spoiler: Chiho]] head-on, then [[spoiler: [[NinjaLog sheds her dress]] to avoid being skewered.]] Jun capitalizes on the opening and clotheslines [[spoiler: Chiho]], ending the fight.
* [[ManipulativeBitch Manipulative Runt]]: She mooches a free dessert off of Jun and weasels out of her match with Erina, by getting them to stop at the site of her designated fight, then allowing Erina to think Yuka was her. See directly below for details.
** LoopholeAbuse: Erina knew Manami was supposed to be her next opponent, but hadn't bothered to do an ID check before the match. So when Jun tells her to fight Yuka, Erina accepts under the assumption that Yuka must've been Manami, since she was at the designated place for the fight. Which was exactly what Manami intended, so she could advance on a technicality.[[note]]As Manami pointed out, it was Erina's fault for not doing an ID check, and Jun's for suggesting that Erina fight Yuka. By tournament rules, Manami was exonerated of any wrongdoing and was allowed to advance[[/note]].
* MegaTwinTails: Picture [[Anime/TenchiMuyo Sasami Jurai]] with pink hair and you basically have [[http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/427537 Manami.]]
** RapunzelHair: Because of her pint-sized stature, her pigtails nearly touch the floor.
* MythologyGag: True to the game series, when Manami uses her Nekko Punch to take out Erina's bunny team, the line snaps taut, causing it to [[FunnyMoments come back and hit her too.]]
* NinjaLog: She [[LeeroyJenkins pretends to charge]] [[spoiler: Chiho]], then sheds her dress at the last second to decoy her fire. It works, giving Jun the opening she needs to end the fight.
* OlderThanTheyLook: She's supposed to be 16, but you'd never know it by looking at her. She looks and acts like she's 12-13 instead. Moreso, since her wardrobe consists of a frilly dress and a bow, and a sailor suit style school uniform.
** TokenMiniMoe: ...and she's a runt.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: When Jun calls her out on the mix-up with Erina, [[RefugeInAudacity Manami shamelessly replies that she has no intentions of fighting in the tournament and plans to cheat her way to the top]] to get the prize money.
* RocketPunch: Her rocket-powered gloves [[FoeTossingCharge in action.]]
* RosehairedGirl: Hers is strawberry pink.
* SkinshipGrope: She gets a kick out of groping Yuka's boobs and using them as pillows to rest her head on, which usually annoys Yuka. Manami subjects Jun to it too, right before their fight with [[spoiler: Chiho]], but said hers weren't as nice.
* SweetTooth: All you'll ever see her eat are sweets, whether it's octopus pops, poki sticks, or parfaits.

!!!Chiho Masuda
A {{ninja}} of the Masuda Clan, who's acting on orders from her grandfather, by entering the VG tournament to investigate The Jahana Group's activities. She's also friends with Takikage, a fellow ninja who's infiltrated the group, by disguising himself as one of their operatives. She is voiced by Creator/JunkoIwao (Japanese) and Jessica Robertson (English).
* AdaptationalHeroism: As noted in her character summary, whereas in the ''[[VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo Advanced V.G.]]'' series, Chiho fled the Masuda clan [[IJustWantToBeNormal because she wanted to live a normal life.]]
* [[spoiler: BrainwashedAndCrazy]]: Due to the serum Siritahi injects her with.
** EmptyEyes: Her eyes are blank the entire time she's under Siritahi's control. They return to normal once [[spoiler: Jun]] snaps her out of it, by knocking her unconscious.
* CurbstompBattle: This happens to her twice, back-to-back.
** First, she makes the mistake of crossing paths with [[LadyOfWar Reimi]] and attempts to fight her way past her. Reimi reads each of her attacks and defeats her effortlessly, causing Chiho to flee the battle.
** Except [[OutOfTheFryingPan she crash lands in the arena Damian created to field-test Satomi's enhanced fighting abilities]] and finds Satomi waiting for her; forcing Chiho to fight for her life. She never had a chance. The match ends in seconds.
* [[BadassInDistress Jane Bondage]]: By the time she regains consciousness, she finds herself bound and stripped down to her panties, at [[TortureTechnician Siritahi's]] mercy. She gives Chiho ATasteOfTheLash, but doesn't allow her to pass out. Not before giving her an injection to make her their slave.
* KameHameHadoken:
* {{Ninja}}: She comes from an unnamed ninja clan that apparently has ties with the Japanese government.
** FlashStep: Seen when she slips past a pair of guards, during her escape attempt. Chiho is shown [[NinjaRun running down the hall]] towards them, then vanishes and suddenly reappears in the elevator, directly ''behind them''.
** FlechetteStorm: Used during both her fights with Reimi and [[spoiler: Satomi]] respectively.
** NinjaMaid: Make that "ninja waitress". Literally.
** NinjaRun: Also seen during her escape attempt.
* OhCrap: Covered in the next entry directly below.
* [[HeKnowsTooMuch She Knows too Much]]: Damian catches her spying on him and decides to use her field-test the cyber drive's enhancements. After Chiho's defeat, he leaves her [[TortureTechnician to Siritahi]], who [[ATasteOfTheLash tortures her]] before injecting her with mind control serum.

!!!Ayako Yuuki
[[DemotedToExtra A minor character]], who works as a dancer at the [=SoTO=] techno/rave dance club. In the anime, she serves as Satomi's first opponent. She is voiced by Creator/MichikoNeya (Japanese) and Sascha Biesi (English).
* [[AdaptationalVillainy Adaptational Jerkassery]]: In her video game portrayal, she uses her body to lure out stalkers and rapists to bring them to justice. The anime, however, makes her out to be [[DepravedHomosexual a lesbian who sexually harasses other women]] - as seen in the example entry below:
** BullyingADragon: She repeatedly comes onto Satomi, during their match, until she makes the mistake of pushing her ''[[RageBreakingPoint too far]]''. Seen and hilariously [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DD6fLDR9xSg at 18:01-18:43, here.]]
-->'''reviewer: ([[DeadpanSnarker snarking]])''' "Wait... did Satomi just ''kill'' Yuuki? [[WhatTheHellHero What the hell?]] What happened to the penalties being humiliation and nudity? What did Yuuki do to deserve death? She was so kind, and charming, and charitable and-"
-->'''*shows replay of Yuuki stripping and groping Satomi*'''
-->'''reviewer''': ''(resumes)'' "Oh, wait. Despite the fact that she aims to protect women from rapists, [[DepravedHomosexual she practically tried to rape Satomi]], during the fight. So Yuuki's [[{{Hypocrite}} a bloody hypocrite.]] Nevermind."
* BareYourMidriff: Her haltertop's short enough that it leaves her navel on full display.
* BlowYouAway: Yuuki's Rave Twister creates a whirlwind and looks similar to ''[[Anime/StreetFighterIITheAnimatedMovie Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie's]]'' rendition of [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Chun Li's]] "Spinning Bird Kick".
* CombatStilettos: She fights in high-heels as part of her 'rave girl' image.
* CombatHandFan: Hers is a showgirl fan lined with feathers which conceals a set of blades. She uses it to [[ClothingDamage shred Satomi's uniform]], during their match.
* DanceBattler: It's her profession after all, which she incorporates into her fighting style.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: It's skintight and short enough that you ''should'' be able to see her panties, though it [[MagicSkirt somehow manages to prevent that.]]
* DemotedToExtra: While the rest of the cast gets a fair amount of screentime and character focus, Yuki is only seen briefly during her match with Satomi. Which serves as little more than a means for Damian to assess Satomi's inherent fighting ability.
* {{Ephebophile}}: Yuuki's 20 and has the hots [[LustObject for Satomi]], who's only 16[[note]][[ValuesDissonance The age of consent, in Japan, is 14]], so Satomi would be legal aged[[/note]].
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: She twirls while shredding Satomi's uniform, then finishes with a flourish by spinning rapidly like figure skater, before striking a pose. Moments later, she follows that up with her [[HurricaneKick "Mach]] [[BlowYouAway Spin".]] It's a wonder she didn't make herself dizzy.
* EyesAlwaysShut: Even when [[OhCrap she knew she was screwed.]]
* ForcefulKiss: After deflecting one of Satomi's punches, Yuuki pulls her close and steals a kiss on her cheek. It was a mistake she almost didn't live to regret.
* {{Gainaxing}}: Like you wouldn't believe! You'd almost think her boobs were spring-loaded.
* IncompatibleOrientation: Her crush on Satomi is unrequited in both the OVA and the games themselves, since Satomi isn't into other women, [[CelibateHero nor is she interested in romance.]]
* LipstickLesbian: [[AllThereInTheManual According to her bio]], she entered the tournament as an excuse to see as many naked women's bodies as possible.
** [[DepravedHomosexual Depraved Lesbian]]: In [[AdaptationalVillainy her anime portrayal]], Yuki gropes Satomi, then spends half the match flirting with her, while shredding her uniform. Going so far as to steal a kiss on her cheek.
* MythologyGag: Yuuki's interest in Satomi carried over to ''Advanced V.G. II'', where she tries hitting on her before their fight, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KhvfmrWWbg but gets turned down.]]
* NoblewomansLaugh: She taunts Satomi by laughing from behind her fan, after shredding several parts of her uniform.
* OhCrap: Yuki's reaction right as Satomi prepares to let her have it.
* TemptingFate: Sexually harassing an opponent, who happens to have one of the highest latent fighting potentials on record[[note]]though Yuuki wasn't aware of that[[/note]] was already pushing her luck. Going so far as to kiss her, was what finally caused Satomi's patience to run out.
* ThanksForTheMammary: At the start of the match, she puts Satomi in an arm lock, then slips her hand down her blouse and gropes her.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Hers is violet purple.

[[folder: Villains]]
!!!Miranda Jahana
[[BigBad The driving force behind The Jahana Group's actions]] [[NotJustATournament and the plot, in general.]] She's also the mother of Reimi, though she has no love for her daughter and sees her as little more than a diversion to her ambitions. Which is to take over a suitably powerful body and reclaim [[EntitledBitch her rightful place as head]] of [[NebulousEvilOrganization The Jahana Corporation.]] She is voiced by Creator/AtsukoTanaka (Japanese) and Cyndi Williams (English).
* [[AbusiveParents Abusive Parent]]: A flashback reveals she used to [[spoiler: beat Reimi and subjected her to hellish training and experiments to condition her for use as her new host body]]. When she failed to meet Miranda's expectations, she considered her trash and lost her only interest in her daughter.
* ArchEnemy: To Yuka. In the final episode, [[TheEmpath she senses]] the "Satomi" in front of her was someone else and asks who they are. Miranda replies that there was no need to answer that, [[ContinuityNod since they'd already met.]] Yuka recognizes the voice immediately.
* BackFromTheDead: Albeit, temporarily, once she gains full control over Satomi's body.
* BigBad: The VG tournament is the means by which she intends to find the ideal specimen, whose body will become her new vessel, and designed the cyber drive to enhance one's natural fighting ability through neurological augmentation. It also allows her to take possession of them [[GrandTheftMe by superimposing her consciousness over theirs]].
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: If her character summation and the preceding entries don't make it clear enough, '''keep. Reading.'''
* DefeatMeansRespect: When Yuka asks Miranda why she suddenly [[GrandTheftMe wanted]] ''[[AlmightyJanitor her body]]'', Miranda openly acknowledged the fact that Yuka's fighting ability [[KiManipulation and overall power]] may even surpass her own, during Miranda's prime. Making her body the ideal specimen for her designs.
* TheDisembodied: It's never said how she died. All that's known is she wants another lease on life and is looking for the perfect specimen to use as her new vessel - even it means creating one, herself.
* EntitledBitch: She planned to take over some unsuspecting girl's body and steal their power, by superimposing ''her'' consciousness over theirs, so she could come back to life as the world's strongest ''and'' reclaim her position as head of the Jahana Corporation. [[SarcasmMode That's reasonable, isn't it?]]
* EvilForeigner: Miranda was from the good 'ol U.S. of A. Now she's D.O.A. (no, not ''[[VideoGame/DeadOrAlive that one]]'').
* EvilMatriarch: Noted in the AbusiveParent entry.
* [[spoiler: [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist by Her Own Petard]]]]: Ironically, this happens to her twice:
** Her first mistake was [[AbusiveParents pushing Reimi]] to such insane levels of perfection at an early age, which comes back to bite Miranda in the ass when [[ThePerfectionist Reimi's]] [[AwesomeByAnalysis fighting skills]] prove too much for Satomi to overcome ''even with'' the cyber drive's enhancements.
** Miranda's second mistake was using Satomi for the "Black Goddess" project, which naturally lead [[TheHero Yuka]] to search for [[ChildhoodFriend her missing friend.]] Once she frees Satomi from Miranda's control, [[spoiler: the very power she coveted gets turned against her when they unleash their combined fury on her and destroy tbe cyber drive]].
* ItsAllAboutMe: Which is pretty much the entire point of the tournament and the plot. [[EntitledBitch The lady's got entitlement issues.]]
* KickTheDog: Miranda loves doing this to Reimi, as seen in the [[AbusiveParents Abusive Parent]] and MeaningfulName entries.
* MeaningfulName: The name "Jahana" means "evil flower" in Japanese, which explains the white rose motiff she uses. This also become a plot point when [[spoiler: she cheats Reimi out of her victory against Satomi, by activating the seed she had implanted in Reimi's body when she was a child. It sprouts into a vine covered in white roses that sap all of Reimi's strength, leaving her unable to fight]].
* MonochromeApparition: The only time her spirit is shown, she appears as a greyish-white apparition.
* RichBitch: She's ridiculously wealthy, or ''was'' when she was alive, and is an evil, manipulative, contemptible woman with no redeeming qualities to speak of.
* SadisticChoice: After seeing that Satomi wasn't powerful enough to defeat Reimi, despite the cyber drive's enhancements, she decides to use Yuka's body instead. Miranda threatens to kill Satomi from within unless Yuka agreed to surrender her body to her. [[spoiler: [[DivingSave Kaori prevents it from happening]]]].
* [[spoiler: TheUnfought: After all the hell her schemes puts Satomi through, she and Yuka don't actually get to fight her. Instead, [[SoulJar her spirit remains trapped]] [[HauntedTechnology in the cyber drive.]] So they destroy it, presumably taking Miranda along with it]].

!!!Reimi Jahana
The heiress of the Jahana Family and the two-time defending champion of the VG tournament. Reimi possesses tremendous power and fighting ability, such that few can hope to stand against her, and enters the competition to prove her dominance once again. She is voiced by Creator/YurikoYamaguchi (Japanese), Lane West (English) and Lauren Worsham (English, young Reimi).
* ActionGirlfriend: To her personal assistant (and paramour), Washio.
* [[WildCard Ambiguous Alignment]]: Reimi straddles the line between being an AntiHero and an AntiVillain, making it difficult to tell what her true alignment is. At first, [[SlowMotionPassby it appears that she's meant to be]] an antagonist towards Yuka, but her other actions, such as adamantly refusing to bend the tournament's rules, and directly confronting [[TheDragon Damian]] once she learns about his hidden testing facility, clearly shows she has [[NobleDemon a strong sense of integrity.]]
* ArmorPiercingSlap: When Damian tries to get her to bend the rules to allow Satomi to enter the competition after the deadline, she asks whether it was Satomi's decision, or his. When he evades the question, by implying Satomi could possibly be a match for ''even her'', she bitchslaps him and tells him the answer to both, is "no".
* [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Arrogant Kung-Fu Chick]]: With her fighting skills and considering she's the two-time defending champion of the VG tournament (primed for a three-peat), it's {{justified}}.
* AwesomeByAnalysis: She can accurately read her opponents and readily exploit any flaws or weaknesses she finds in their technique (see the: FlawExploitation and PowerNullifier enteries).
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: She's the CEO of the Jahana Corporation and the two-time defending champion of the VG tournament. Not impressed? Then consider this: Yuka and Satomi[[note]]Satomi's power was augmented by the cyber drive[[/note]] each took a stab at her with one of their strongest attacks. She [[PowerNullifier stopped both of them cold]] without breaking a sweat.
* BadassArmfold: Usually seen whenever she's lecturing someone, though she'll sometimes do so with a hand on her hip to the same effect.
* BadassInANiceSuit: Her standard attire is a black tuxedo with a white vest and bowtie (minus a jacket), along with [[CombatStilettos a pair high-heels.]] But she's also seen in secretarial garb, which includes a form-fitting miniskirt, when she's alone with her personal aide.
* CulturedBadass: In addition to her style of dress, she rides around in a red Ferrari and is also seen having rooftop trysts (which includes fine wine) with her personal aide in her private rose garden.
* ButNotTooForeign: Reimi is of mixed heritage, with her father being Japanese, while her mother was an American.
* [[spoiler: DiscOneFinalBoss]]: The encounter between her and Yuka on the highway, along with the fact she's the two-time defending champion, makes it seem that she'll be the one Yuka has to face in the finals. Except it isn't allowed to happen, due to [[spoiler: Miranda cheating Reimi out of her victory over Satomi, which eliminates Reimi from the competition]].
* EnemyWithin: A flashback to Reimi's childhood reveals she was subjected to hellish experiments by her mother, during which, [[spoiler: [[ChekhovsGun a seed was implanted in her body]]]]. Which comes into play during her match with Satomi when [[spoiler: Miranda triggers it to sap Reimi's strength, leaving her unable to fight]]. Making Satomi the winner by default.
* FlawExploitation: This is one of the cornerstones in her counteroffensive arsenal, which she demonstrates during her encounter with Satomi. When Satomi launches into [[FullContactMagic a ki-powered aerial strike]], Reimi catches it effortlessly with one hand and cancels it, while giving her a brief lecture on ki manipulation[[note]]Reimi used her own ki as a buffer to first diminish the power of Satomi's strike, then redirected Satomi's own ki back at her. Thereby cancelling the attack altogether[[/note]].
-->'''Reimi: ([[SmugSuper smirking]])''' "You have amazing power. However, power alone is not enough. You must temper power with control, and temper control with technique. Like so."
-->'''redirects Satomi's own power back at her, [[PowerNullifier cancelling the attack]]'''
* GiveGeeksAChance: Judging from the scene between her and Washio in her private rose garden, [[SleepingWithTheBoss they've secretly got a thing going on.]]
* HerBoyfriendsJacket: Invoked [[BadassBystander when Washio saves her]] from the research facility's collapse in the final episode. Since she was naked, he removes his jacket to cover her with it; preserving Reimi's modesty.
* IronLady: She's all business and adamantly enforces and adheres to the rules of the VG tournament. She's also the CEO of The Jahana Corporation, which sponsors the tournament, and runs both like well-oiled machines to ensure their profitability.
* LadyOfWar: The women of VG are collectively referred to as "goddesses", but Reimi exemplifies it because you'd swear she was some sort of nobility. She conducts herself with presence, poise, and authority - even in the midst of battle.
* LightningBruiser: Speed, power, defense, precision, technique. There is no discernible flaw in her style. So much so, that [[spoiler: Miranda had to cheat to get rid of her]].
* TheOjou: She's held in high esteem as both the heiress of the Jahana Family and the CEO of her family's corporation.
* ThePerfectionist: This was [[AbusiveParents beaten into her]] at an early age, by her mother, who relentlessly pushed her to perfect her fighting skills and analytical abilities. As a result, her skills have been honed to a razor's edge to where she can accurately read her opponents and readily exploit any flaws or weaknesses in their attacks.
* PowerNullifier: She has the ability to counter energy based attacks by nullifying her opponent's ki by first offsetting it with her own, then redirecting their own energy back at them to cancel their attack. Seen when she casually counters [[MovesetClone the same attack from both Yuka and Satomi]] respectively.
* RapunzelHair: Her hair's actually longer than Yuka's and has greater volume to boot. Not that it slows her down any.
** PrincessCurls: Of the [[MegaTwinTails mega twin-tailed]] variety.
** WhiteHairedPrettyGirl: It's closer to silvery grey, but still applies.
* SecretRelationship: With her personal aide, Washio, whom she's heavily implied to be sleeping with.
* ShockAndAwe: Her ki has an electrical effect, as Chiho learns firsthand when Reimi tags her with it.
* SomethingAboutARose: Just like her mother, though hers are red to distinguish her from Miranda's white ones. She flicks one at [[{{Ninja}} Chiho]], using the thorns on the stem to strip the mask from her face. And, at the start of her match against Satomi, she shields herself from one of Satomi's attacks by enveloping her body in a giant red rose.

Miranda's [[TheDragon most loyal follower and the one she entrusts to carry out her agenda]], who undermines Reimi's authority to do so. After scouting Satomi and sensing her latent power, Damian becomes convinced that she would make the perfect specimen to serve as Miranda's new vessel and manipulates her to that end. He is voiced by Creator/MasashiEbara (Japanese), David Frank Jones (English, Damian) [[spoiler:and David Stokey (English, Katoon)]].
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: See the [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections Screw the Rules]] entry.
* DeathSeeker: See the RedemptionEqualsDeath entry further down.
* TheDragon: To Miranda Jahana.
* DyingAsYourself[=/=] GoOutWithASmile: As he's dying, Siritahi tearfully calls him by his real name for the first time in years: [[spoiler: Katoon]]. He smiles and thanks her for it before passing away.
* {{Expy}}: Possibly of [[Anime/MacrossPlus Guld Goa Boman]]. Not only do they look similar (minus the difference in hair color), he has a similar condition where he has to take meds to suppress [[spoiler: his SuperpoweredEvilSide]] - just as Guld had to take medication to suppress his Zentradi impulses - and each takes an injection shot along with it.
* [[BeingWatched I Know You're There]]: Chiho eavesdrops on a secret meeting between Damian one of the lab technicians, who tells Damian they'd get better results if they could pit Satomi against live opponents, rather than simulations. Damian smirks, without turning around, and suggests they [[OhCrap "start with that girl spying on us in the doorway over there".]]
* KickTheDog: Noted in the complete monster entry on the [[YMMV/VariableGeo YMMV page.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: Already covered in the DealWithTheDevil entry in Satomi's section and the [[CuriosityKilledTheCast Curiosity Killed the Cat]] entry in Kaori's section.
* OnlyOneName: Damian's last name is never given. In fact, it isn't even his real name, it's an alias. And, even when ''that's'' finally revealed, he's still only referred to by one name: [[spoiler: Katoon]].
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: During the scene where he attacks Yuka, he repeatedly demands that she, "use it"[[note]]her Soryu Gekki[[/note]]. Damian deflects it easily which causes him to become further enraged and beats her savagely for it. He finally finds peace in the final episode, when Yuka blasts him with her Soryu Gekki which purges him of all his hostility. Thereby, eliminating his [[SuperpoweredEvilSide alter-ego]] for good, which is what he'd been waiting for. It kills him in the process, but [[GoOutWithASmile he dies without regret]].
* [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections Screw the Rules]]: Damian flagrantly disregards the tournament's rules in order to carry out his plan to resurrect his deceased employer. Including manipulating Satomi into joining the competition past the entry deadline, despite Reimi outright forbidding it. As well as secretly conducting unsanctioned matches to ensure her body would be a suitable and compatible host for Miranda's spirit to inhabit.
* SecretRelationship: It's subtly implied that he and [[spoiler: Siritahi]] were an item.
* SeeksAnothersResurrection: Noted in both his character summary and the [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections Screw the Rules]] entry.
* SharpDressedMan: Always seen in a suit and tie. With shades.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: He takes two sets of medication to control it: one helps him suppress it, while the other allows him to trigger it.
** AxeCrazy: In his feral state, Damian will attack friend or foe indiscriminately. In the final episode, he becomes so forgone that he kills the lab technicians when they try to sedate him and even turns on Siritahi. Yuka saves her by striking him with Soryu Gekki, which purges him of all his hostility... [[spoiler: but kills him in the process]].
* SunglassesAtNight: He rarely takes them off, 'til he reveals that he was the one who killed Yuka's students by [[spoiler: triggering his transformation right in front of her]], before fighting her one last time.

A scientist, who works at the Jahana Research Facility and is responsible for providing Damian's medication to help suppress [[SuperpoweredEvilSide his violent impulses.]] She's also in charge of [[TortureTechnician dealing with]] [[HeKnowsTooMuch anyone caught poking around the facility.]] However, it's subtly implied that her real reason for working there, is to find a cure for Damian's condition [[spoiler: so [[SecretRelationship they can be together again]]]].
* EeriePaleskinnedBrunette: Siritahi's complexion is [[http://www.bladeandepsilon.com/vgoavcap159.jpg nearly ivory white]], which sharply contrasts with her jet black hair.
* HotScientist: She's drop-dead gorgeous, though you don't get to see much of her figure because of her labcoat. Still, if [[ShesGotLegs her legs]] are any indication... '''[[HelloNurse hel~lo NURSE!]]'''
* ImpliedLoveInterest: She shows a great deal of concern for [[spoiler: Damian's]] well being both times she has to sedate him to. In addition, it's implied she was working at the Jahana Research Facility in hopes of finding a cure for his condition, so they could be together again. When he eventually subcumbs to it [[spoiler: and dies, she loses the will to live, herself, and [[TogetherInDeath choses to die with him]]]], during the lab's destruction.
* ItsUpToYou: She doesn't try to stop Yuka after Damian's death. Instead, she tearfully tells Yuka that Miranda was waiting for he just up ahead and asks Yuka to "finish it".
* OnlyOneName: It isn't known whether it's her first or last name. It's possible that it may not even be her real name, but an alias instead, like Damian's.
* SecretRelationship: Implied to have been in one with [[spoiler: Damian]].
* TogetherInDeath: Once she loses Damian, Siritahi loses her will to live. She's last seen cradling his lifeless body as the research facility implodes around her, 'til the ceiling finally crumbles and falls directly on top of them.
* TortureTechnician: This is her secondary duty at the facility, which is how they deal with spies and intruders.
** IHaveYouNowMyPretty: Siritahi takes a moment to [[HomoeroticSubtext admire Chiho's exposed skin]], before proceeding with the torture.
** ATasteOfTheLash: After binding Chiho's hands to the ceiling and stripping her down to her panties, she waits for her to regain consciousness. Once Chiho realizes her predicament, Siritahi lashes her with a whip; keeping her conscious throughout the ordeal.
** {{Sadist}}: Suffice to say, she enjoys her work. After whipping Chiho relentlessly, she pauses to [[LecherousLicking lick a fleck of blood from one of the welts on her cheek.]] Then puts the whip away and withdraws a syringe from the inner beastpocket of her labcoat.
** YouWontFeelAThing: Said right before she injects her with mind control serum.

[[folder: Other Characters]]
!!!Daisuke Yajima
Satomi's kid brother and only living relative. He suffers from an unspecified medical condition which keeps him bedridden and in need of expensive medical care.
* [[IllGirl Ill Boy]]: In the OVA, he's shown to be in frail condition and remains bedridden at a local hospital.
* ItsUpToYou: Daisuke may be young, but he knows his sister well enough to realize something was off about her last visit before her departure. He relays the message she left for Yuka and asks Yuka to save her.
* {{Muggle}}: He doesn't have any martial arts training, nor does he have to ability to use Ki, unlike his sister.
* SoapOperaDisease: It's never said what he's suffering from, but the symptoms include: coughing, shortness of breath, and occasional seizures. The costs of his treatments are also shown to be more than his sister can manage, despite working two jobs[[note]]she only part-times as a waitress, it's never said what her other job is[[/note]].
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Minus the differences in age and gender, he looks near identical to Satomi. Including the mole beneath his left eye, the same as hers.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: It's unknown whether he recovers, since it hinges on whether or not Satomi wins the prize money to cover the cost of the procedure that can cure him. But the OVA ends without showing the outcome of the final bout.

Reimi's personal aide. Little else is known about him, besides the fact that he's apparently her paramour. He is voiced by Creator/KazuyaIchijo (Japanese) and Gary Dehan (English).
* BadassBystander: It isn't known how he did it, but he somehow made it past the security at the Jahana research facility without being seen, and saves Reimi before the facility goes up in flames.
* HollywoodNerd: Suffice to say, he's pretty easy on the eyes, NerdGlasses and all. Reimi certainly thinks so, since she can't keep her hands off him.
* {{Megane}}: He wears a simple pair a wire-rimmed specs.
* NiceGuy: Washio is shown to be studious, mild-mannered, and loyal to Reimi, outside of his personal feelings for her.
* NonActionGuy: He's [[{{muggle}} an everyman]], so he leaves the fighting [[ActionGirlfriend to Reimi.]]
* RightHandHottie: As previously noted, he's Reimi's personal aide/boytoy.
* {{Salaryman}}: At the Jahana Corporation, where he serves as the Chairwoman's personal assistant and adjutant.
* SecretRelationship: With his boss, Reimi Jahana.
** SleepingWithTheBoss: Heavily implied in the scene where Chiho ends up stumbling across Reimi's private rose garden, during her escape attempt, and finds her straddling Washio, while they were making out.
* YouMustBeCold: After saving Reimi from the research facility's collapse, he gives her his jacket to cover herself with, to preserve her modesty.

!!!The Old Master
An old man, who's accompanied by a young mute girl. They only make occasional appearances, either so the old man can aid Yuka, or simply impart words of wisdom to her. Though their final scene makes it clear that they have their own agenda. She is voiced by Takko Ishimori (Japanese) and Robert Rudie (English).
* BadassGrandpa: Like most examples of the trope, he may not look it, but he's not one to trifle with. He was skilled enough to read one of Yuka's punches and casually evaded it in close quarters. Also see the BigDamnHeroes entry.
** BadassAndChildDuo: He's always accompanied by a young mute girl, who [[AmbiguouslyBrown appears to be]] from India, judging by her hairstyle and her attire. Their final scene reveals she's anything but helpless.
* BigDamnHeroes: In the second episode, he saves Yuka, Jun, and Manami, by briefly fighting [[spoiler: Damian]]'s SuperpoweredEvilSide. It was clear he had the advantage, given [[spoiler: Damian]] was forced to withdraw, after being sedated by Siritahi.
* DirtyOldMan: ...and not ashamed to admit it, while watching Jun strip after her loss to Yuka. When Yuka [[PervertRevengeMode tries to deck him for it]], he casually dodges her punch and responds [[ThanksForTheMammary by nuzzling]] [[http://anime-fanservice.org/coppermine/displayimage.php?album=740&pid=23248#top_display_media her chest.]] Then walks away laughing that she wasn't half bad. Whether he was referring to her punch, or her breasts, is left unclear.
* MentorOccupationalHazard: {{Subverted}} in the sense that he doesn't die. The next morning, after the attack on her dojo, he tells Yuka that a human hand can nurture life, but just as easily take it (as [[spoiler: Damian]] had done to her students). Then tells her to search within herself and find what her own fists were for.
* NoNameGiven: We never find out who he is (or the girl), since no one thought to ask him.

!!!The Mute
A silent young girl, (presumably) from India, who accompanies the old man. Like him, we never learn her name.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: She has the complexion and appearance of someone from India, though it's never said were she hails from.
* BadassAndChildDuo: Noted in the related entry in The Old Master's section.
* BewareTheQuietOnes: Seriously (look at the next entry).
* BreathWeapon: Easily the biggest wtf moment in the series occurs in the final episode, when she kills one of [[spoiler: Miranda]]'s henchmen, by plucking her tuning fork and firing [[spoiler: what appears to be a laser beam]] from her mouth!
* CuteMute[=/=]SilentBob: She never says a word the entire time.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: She's first seen practicing with her tuning fork, then smiles as she raises her hand to allow a bird to perch on her index finger.
* NoNameGiven: Same as the Old Master.
