Characters: All You Need Is Kill
Characters appearing in All You Need Is Kill. Beware of spoilers.

Keiji "Killer Cage" Kiriya

Rita "Valkyrie" Vrataski

  • The Ace: How she's viewed by the world in general.
    • Broken Ace: She's just a lonely girl, fighting against a truly horrifying enemy while knowing what they are actually capable of without the ability to share the burden with anyone. Until she meets Keiji.
  • An Axe to Grind: She is the first user of the Battle Axe on the battlefield and the one who inadvertently passes the skill to Keiji.
  • Bad Ass: Holy SHIT.
    • Badass Adorable: She's still just a lonely 16/17 year old girl underneath it all.
  • Blood Knight: And sadly, not by choice.
  • Cry Cute: When she finally realized she's not alone, that Keiji is having the same experiences as her before.
  • Genki Girl: She used to be one before all this.
  • Parental Abandonment: She has both a caring dad (who is a Retired Badass of the EDF) and loving mom. They were both killed during one of the first Mimic attacks in the US.
  • Red Baron: Alternatively known as The Valkyrie and the Full Metal Bitch.
  • Shout-Out: Being dubbed the Full Metal Bitch. Pick a work on the disambiguation page; whichever one you pick, she's a shout out to it.
