Heart Aino

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arcana_heart_heart_2712.png
Default Arcana: Partinias (Love)
Voiced by: Mikako Takahashi
The mascot of the series, Heart is a complete ditz and a loyal worshiper of The Power of Love. Her purpose is to be there to help her friends when they're down. In the process, however, she makes herself fair game to people who seem to desire her power (or her pureness) for something.

Saki Tsuzura

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arcana_heart_saki_2931.png
Default Arcana: Bhanri (Lightning)
Voiced by: Yumi Shimura
Heart's aloof best friend who has gone studying in England, where she befriended Fiona, whom she unfortunately lost during the separation of the Elemental World. In the process, her Arcana would wake in time to save her life, and ever since made a vow to protect her remaining friends, even if from afar.
  • Aloof Ally: She is this for Heart.
  • Broken Bird: She is affected by Fiona's disappearance.
  • Charged Attack: Every one of her specials.
  • Childhood Friends: She has been best friends with Heart since childhood.
  • Clothing Damage: If she's defeated by a super move, her tights get ripped in a few places.
  • Cry Cute: At the end of her story in 3, she broke down in tears upon realizing that all her efforts to gain the sacred stones to turn Fiona back to human was a complete failure, and the rumors behind it could be lies. Thank God there's Heart to cheer her up.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Two years before the events of the original Arcana Heart, Saki's father had to relocate to Great Britain for work, and she attended school there. One day, Saki and her friend Fiona visited a mysterious mountainside and were sucked into the Elemental world. Saki was rescued by the Arcana Bhanri, but Fiona was trapped in the other dimension. Saki has felt guilty ever since.

Default Arcana: Anutpada (Time)
Voiced by: Hiromi Hirata
The "Millennium Guardian" who has awakened due to a crisis brought upon by Mildred. She investigates this matter with the help of the ninja girl Konoha by posing as Heart and Saki's sempai, only with ponytail and still carrying her katana Tamayorihime... as if that's not going to attract the gaze of many an inquisitive eye.

Konoha

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arcana_heart_konoha_4716.png
Default Arcana: Moriomoto (Nature)
Voiced by: Mayumi Yoshida
A dog girl who comes from the legendary Koinumaru ninja clan. She is often very happy, going into battles happily and settling them in a well-intentioned manner. Her route is more joking, however, and it's largely all Played for Laughs.

Maori Kasuga

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arcana_heart_maori_8283.png
Default Arcana: Ohtsuchi (Earth)
Voiced by: Maki Tsuchiya

Default Arcana: Lang-Gong (Fire)
Voiced by: Juri Takita
A Robot Girl in search of her master who was captured by Mildred. She is apparently friends with Kira, however insufferable she may be, and they often work together.

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arcana_heart_lilica_1066.png
Default Arcana: Tempestas (Wind)
Voiced by: Mayako Nigo
A half-demon who lives with her father. She usually goes about searching for fun, and shrugs off work. She was apparently offered some kind of 'deal' from Mildred, which she (obviously) rejects.

Lieselotte Achenbach

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arcana_heart_lieselotte_6292.png
Default Arcana: Gier (Shadow)
Voiced by: Yoko Honda
A girl who lost her family (unknowingly, by her own hands), and whose older sister Elfriede's body was placed on a puppet she carries around. She was hired by Mildred to capture Heart.
  • Aloof Ally: She becomes this later on in the series.
  • Blob Monster: Gier manifests as this.
  • Broken Bird: After losing her family, Lieselotte was emotionally scarred and she became a cold-hearted assassin.
  • Casting a Shadow: Gier has the power of darkness.
  • Creepy Child: She's unsettlingly emotionless and quiet, wanted criminal in another dimension, and carries around a legless puppet with her sister's spirit trapped inside. And she's only ten years old. Yeah, pretty creepy.
  • Difficult, but Awesome: One of the trickier characters to use, but gets deadly once well played.
  • Easily Forgiven: Heart is surprisingly cool with the fact that Lieselotte tried to kidnap her in the first game. Then again, it is Heart.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: She dresses in gothic lolita fashion.
  • Emotionless Girl: As she is an assassin.
  • Enfante Terrible: Don't underestimate her for being a 10-year-old girl, she's cold-blooded assassin.
  • Evil Albino: A dangerous assassin with the typical appearance of an albino.
  • Hair Decorations: She wears a head dress, with a red ribbon on both sides of it.
  • Heel–Face Turn: She's still the "creepy" member of the cast, but over time, she's mellowed out from cold-blooded assassin to Aloof Ally.
  • Improbable Age: She's a ten-year-old assassin.
  • Parasol of Pain: She uses her umbrella as a Magic Wand to cast the spells of her Arcana.
  • Parasol Parachute: She enters matches by floating down with her parasol.
  • Puppet Fighter: She can throw out a legless marionette out of the briefcase to intiate this type of gameplay. The doll normally moves by the directional inputs and attacks by button inputs, though Lieselotte can set up markers to make the doll do different actions on her own. The doll can only take three hits unless recalled, after which she becomes unable to move, requiring you to use a super to revive her. Her Arcana of Shadow, Gier, also behaves likes this. If you hold down the button as you are doing one of its special attacks, you can control Gier to make it move as a shadow around the field to go into a position to attack.

Yoriko Yasuzumi

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arcana_heart_yoriko_2775.png
Default Arcana: Dieu Mort (Evil)
Voiced by: Yui Itsuki
A young occult fangirl who summoned her staff, Mike, from a spell. Unfortunately, she cannot control him that well, and as a result, she often gets into fights due to his manners.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Even though she is interested in occultism and her main Arcana is the Arcana of Evil, Yoriko is a really nice girl. And while Mike can be insufferable, if people acknowledge his true greatness, he isn't that bad of a guy.
  • Dog Walks You: One of the biggest problems with Mike, aside from just about everything, is that he has a bad habit of literally dragging poor Yoriko around on what amounts to demonic joyrides. It's so bad that virtually every pre-fight quote made by Yoriko is screaming at her opponent to get out of the way, because she can't stop Mike's current rampage.
  • Empathic Weapon: Mike usually takes a form of a staff which Yoriko has to carry around.
  • Meganekko: She's a cute, smart, shy girl with glasses.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her braid is as long as she's tall.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Lilica's and Mike's red.
  • Shout-Out: Three of her alternate colors make her look like Chitose Akiyama, Lambda-11 and Tomoko Hoshina. Another makes her resemble Louise!
  • Shrinking Violet: Yoriko is very shy and awkward. This puts her at a huge contrast with Mike.

Kira Daidouji

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arcana_heart_kira_2948.png
Default Arcana: Niptra (Water)
Voiced by: Hiromi Tsunakake
A girl who got her PhD at the Improbable Age of eleven, Kira has large intentions... as in World Domination. She fights Mildred with her trusty blob for getting in the way with that.

Fiona Mayfield

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arcana_heart_fiona_3995.png
Default Arcana: Orichalcos (Metal)
Voiced by: Maria Yamamoto
A British girl whom Saki befriend and was captured by Mildred in what was termed the "Mayfield Incident". She serves her mistress loyally, largely thinking of her as a friend. In any other route in 1, she is the penultimate opponent.
  • Apologetic Attacker: Her down-forward strong attack is accompanied by a heartfelt "I'm sorry!" as she smacks her opponent up into the air with her BFS:
    "Excalibur! GOMENASAI!"
  • Ass Kicks You: If you charge her neutral E move, Fiona launches herself butt-first at the enemy.
  • BFS: Wields a sword that's larger than she is.
  • Cute Bruiser: She's a cute girl who also wields a massive sword.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: She's quite clumsy.
  • Difficult, but Awesome: Her level 3 is a rekka that not only has two types of complicated inputs (in the first and last parts of the chain), but the last part of the chain requires strict timing. That said, it hits for 75% damage when done properly.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: Orichalcos has the power of Metal.
  • Fragile Flower: Almost always ends up crying after losing.

Mildred Avallone

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/44fec776847c4caf454807f87f71d70b.png
Voiced by: Yukiko Kikuchi
A woman with an ambition of merging the human and elemental worlds and gain god-like powers. She is fought at the end of any route, and, unsurprisingly, is the hardest character to beat in the whole game, given that she has many unblockable attacks.
  • Absolute Cleavage: Her outfit shows a lot of cleavage.
  • Affably Evil: Always polite when she meets the other girls. Her treatment of Fiona, however, seems more than just politeness.
  • A God Am I: Not quite a God, but when she gets the powers of an Archangel, she starts saying things pretty much along this line:
    What is this feeling? Is this… Is this what it’s like to become an Archangel? The power of the Elementals is within me!! I am eternal!!!
  • All Your Powers Combined: She has a selection of all the best moves from all of the game's Arcana. Including regular special moves that are supers if used by a playable character.
  • The Atoner: Around the events of 3, she feels bad of everything she has done and wishes to use her immortality to undo her mistakes, first thing being fulfilling Fiona's wish properly.
  • Beam Spam: A given due to her being the final boss of the first game.
  • Big Bad: She's the main antagonist of the first game.
  • Big Little Sister: You see Angelia down on the page? Yeah, that is her big sister. Justified as where Angelia stopped aging and growing due of becoming ethereal, Mildred had chance to grow about seven years.
  • Drunk on the Dark Side: More like drunk on the light side, but after becoming an Archangel, she quickly loses all pretense of wanting anything but to destroy mankind:
    Ha-ha-ha-ha! I’ve never felt so alive! The world seems so vivid! I see now what it's like to evolve! All other life is inferior! You're dirt- no, LESS than dirt! No one can stop the worlds from merging now!! Soon, my plans will be complete. I’ll be the creator of a new world, and all will know my name!!
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Mildred is the Responsible sibling to Angelia's Foolish.
  • Light Is Not Good: She becomes an Archangel yet she want to destroy mankind.
  • Not Quite the Right Thing: Her way of helping Fiona to reunite with everyone else was to turn everyone else into ethereal like Fiona, mainly because she never considered the possibility that someone might not want to be one.
  • Pet the Dog: Her treatment of Fiona. She genuinely cares for the latter. As a result, Mildred is not happy whenever Angelia abuses Fiona for her own amusement.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: As part of her transformation into an Archangel, she gains blood red eyes, in contrast to her initial blue eyes.
  • SNK Boss: She has access to all the moves of the Arcana, she can do a lot damage if one her moves connects, and she has a screen filling super.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Avallone/Avalon.
  • Straight Man: In 3, Mildred is occasionally quite beleaguered when it comes to Angelia's actions.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: Thinks that merging the human and Elemental Worlds would give mankind salvation - nevermind the fact millions would outright die during the merge.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: It's revealed in 3 that her actions were her means of trying to reunite with her sister.
  • Winged Humanoid: She has angelic wings.

Default Arcana: Almacia (Ice)
Voiced by: Kaori Shimizu
Amnesiac, no-nonsense Russian Special Forces agent sent to investigate Angelia's rampage in Kanto, and ends up clashing with Kamui. Beneath her tough exterior is a Friend to All Children who is somewhat fond of plushies.
  • Aloof Big Sister: For Lieselotte, but neither of them knew until recently.
  • An Ice Person: Her default Arcana, Almacia, uses the power of ice.
  • Badass Longcoat: Sports a kickass black longcoat, supporting her appearance as a very powerful fighter.
  • Charged Attack: A couple of her specials can be charged up with the Edinorog gauge, and the damage varies depending on where you stop the charge. Landing on green deals the minimum damage, landing on orange deals higher damage, and landing on the thin blue area deals the maximum damage. One of her supers also makes it so that her next charged special is always at maximum power.
  • Everything's Better with Penguins: Her main Arcana, Almacia, is a penguin, and seems to like them as much as Kamui.
  • Extremity Extremist: She uses very few kicks and mostly relies on punches and her pilebunker.
  • I Call It "Vera": Her pilebunker is named "Edinorog" (Russian for "unicorn"), and even Zenia sometimes remarks that its blood is boiling.
  • Long-Lost Relative: She is actually Elfriede Achenbach, Lieselotte's older sister, separated at birth and given a complete memory wash. She learned this from Petra at the end of 3 and returned to Lieselotte for a short time.
  • Mystical White Hair: She kinda fits this trope in that she has silver hair and her origin is completely shrouded in mystery.

  • Rei Ayanami Expy: She has silver hair, red eyes, pale skin, a mysterious past, and is very stoic.
  • Shout-Out: Some of her alternate colors resemble Iori Yagami, Vanessa, Nina Antalk and Riza Hawkeye.
  • Slipknot Ponytail: She removes it during one of her winposes, which reveals her long hair. This also happens if she loses via a super move.
  • Statuesque Stunner: At 174 cm, she's the tallest character in the series.
  • The Stoic: She doesn't say much unless it's necessary. Just like her little sister Lieselotte.

  • Too Many Belts: Has three belts in each of her boots and one hanging from her longcoat.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Cookies.

Elsa La Conti

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arcana_heart_elsa_6925.png
Default Arcana: Koshmar (Punishment)
Voiced by: Kaya Miyake
A nun who assists Petra during the second Elemental World incident. She joined the Western Europe Spirit Sector after losing her family to a demon attack. She is very straight forward and sometimes too strict on herself.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: It's not exactly harped upon in the story, but the reason Elsa joined the Western Europe Spirit Branch was because demons murdered her family.
  • Demon Slaying: She used to be an undiscriminating demon slayer when she was still mortal to the point where even her allies were afraid of her. Not that she minded. It wasn't until she met Clarice that she mellowed down greatly.
  • Depleted Phlebotinum Shells: Pulls out a magical gun for her Critical Heart.
  • Expy: The gun and cross aside, her other physical weapons? Holy Water, a whip, a stake, and a bible. Sounds like we have a lost Belmont.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: First met Clarice after being ordered to kill her by her employers. The battle ended badly for both, and their lives were saved by their respective Arcanas.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: She views herself in a really bad light, constantly saying that she is worthless and trying to make up for it by working way harder than she should. Usually many of her friends have to tell her that she shouldn't be so strict on herself.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: She can Consecrate a certain area with few of her move sand the release holy energy from them.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: She practically eats nothing but red bean pastries.
  • Van Helsing Hate Crimes: In the past, she used to detest demons for what they did to her family. Even after mellowing down, she still has to manually control herself when interacting with them.

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arcana_heart_clarice_4965.png
Default Arcana: Sorwat (Sin)
Voiced by: Sayaka Ohara

Catherine Kyoubashi

Default Arcana: Median (Magnetism)
Voiced by: Ai Matayoshi
A Japanese-American who fights with a huge robot of her own design named Terry Yodogawa. Despite her comical appearance, she is a genius prodigy who enrolled in MIT's College of Spirit Research at the age of ten. Arcana is Median, the Arcana of Magnetism.
  • Improbable Age: Enrolled at MIT when she was ten.
  • Kansai Regional Accent: Which is pretty impressive when you consider that she's actually Japanese-American. And yes, her decidedly non-American accent gets lampshaded occasionally. Apparently, she picked up said accent from living with her grandmother.
  • Mini-Mecha: It is called "Terry Yodogawa". Not quite large enough to be Humongous Mecha, but large enough to make her the tallest character in the cast.
  • Morality Pet: Of sorts, to Kira. Catherine is one of the few people who actually like the arrogant genius girl. And while Kira seems to find her annoying, she does ocassionally refer to her as her friend.
  • Shout-Out: Her design and color scheme pretty much screams of a loli, non-pudgy Dr. Eggman.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: All of her supers has something blowing up, be it a Cartoon Bomb, a miniature drone of Yodogawa called Minigawa, multiple firework missiles, or the Yodogawa itself creating the explosion.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Okonomiyaki and takoyaki, rooting back to her family roots in Osaka.

  • Black Magician Girl
  • Boyish Short Hair
  • Cane Fu: Her attacks aside of cards are consist of attacking with her cane. Her down air B is even a pogo cane!
  • Death Dealer: Her specials involves using giant playing cards to attack, and they even have a special mechanism where having five cards on the screen has her "dealing them out", with the attack base on what hand you got.
  • Gratuitous English: She is from North America, but still:
    Shall we go?!
    One, two, three!
    It's showtime!
  • Improbable Age: Was the youngest fighter in the series until Eko appeared, and at the age of nine, she's a popular stage magician in Las Vegas.
  • In the Blood: Her mother was magician and worked for Celestial Union and her father was acrobat and a thief, paving her way to being a magician and a thief herself, while also helping the Celestial Union.
  • Irony: Despite being a thief, some of her motivations in the story is to get something that was stolen from her. It's a Celestial Stone that was stolen by Lieselotte.
  • Lady Looks Like a Dude: By just looking at her, it is hard to tell right away that she's a girl.
  • Lovable Rogue: Even though she's a thief, she steals for the sake of justice, and is really friendly outside of that.
  • Magicians Are Wizards: Don't let her Stage Magician role fool you, her Arcana Magic is quite real.

She refers to herself as the "Millennium Keeper", similar to how Kamui is called the "Millennium Guardian", and in fact has battled with Kamui several times in the past.
  • Glass Cannon: Can deal ridiculous amounts of damage in even faster time, but a little bit of damage can knock her out. Now the problem is actually hitting her before her health regenerates...

  • True Final Boss: Of Suggoi! Arcana Heart 2.

  • Blade Below the Shoulder: She can summon blades onto her wrists as her main combat method.
  • Heroic Albino: One of the good guys, coming with nearly white platinum-blonde hair and red eyes. Ironically, she is supposed to not have albinism and yet appears more pale than both Lieselotte and Zenia, who are indirectly confirmed to have albinism due of them being second generation of Valkyries.
  • Human Weapon: She is one of third generation of Valkyries, people who were artificially given the powers of the Angels.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is pronounced Vice, and means White.
  • Mystical White Hair: She has nearly white platinum-blonde hair, as befits her name. She's also a liberated experimental subject of a project trying to grant ordinary girls the power to channel Celestial Energy.
  • No Social Skills: Knows next to nothing about society, having grown up in Drexler where she has barely any contact of the outside world. She is currently working to adjust.
  • Not So Stoic: Has her own share of moments. Particularly, if it involves her friends.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Weiß is actually her codename, and everyone else other than Scharlachrot call her that. Scharlachrot is the only one to call her by her real name, which is Sophie.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: She wears black tights with her outfit.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair is as long as her body.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Subverted. Despite her intimidating appearance, she's one of the more heroic characters in the game.

Ragnarok


  • Attack Drone: Has two robots what will attack to make it hard to attack Ragnarok.
  • Attac Kits Weakpoint: Has five slots where its Celestial Stones are, and you have to attack all of them to stop it.
  • Final Boss: Is the final opponent of every character in 3's story mode and any of its Updated Rereleases.
  • Humongous Mecha: It's an absolutely humongous mecha-like being, to the point that it overshadows some of the Arcanas.
  • The One Guy: Although being an artificial Arcana, he may not count.
  • Our Centaurs Are Different: It seems to strike for a eight-legged centaur imagery, with its legs being shaped like horse legs.
  • Time-Limit Boss: No matter what the game timer is set to, you have 60 seconds to destroy it. If you "win" via timeout, you get the bad ending — at least losing either by timeout or KO still allows you to continue.

Minori Amanohara

Default Arcana: Ichor (Blood)

Introduced in Arcana Heart 3: LOVE MAX SIX STARS!!!!!!, Minori is a wannabe hero. After feelings of frustration arose in herself as the Misono Academy girls are off protecting the world in secret, she decided to take up the mantle for herself. In her mind if she has power of her own, there isn't any reason why she can't enter the fray.
  • Absolute Cleavage: She wears a "top" composed only by a shawl that leaves exposed the entirety of her cleavage and her belly.
  • Bloody Murder: Hers is the Arcana of Blood, Ichor. Its attacks include splashing the opponent with blood.

  • Human Weapon: Like Weiß and Scharlachrot, she was part of the Valkyrie project. However, she is a special Valkyrie called "Hybride", who has the power to use both Arcanas and Geists.
  • Magic Skirt: Just how does that top not flap upwards or to the side, given the game's focus on airdashing?
  • Power Fist: Infused with her Geist, Fabnir.
  • Theme Naming: Her weapon was made by the Drexler Institute, and thus three of its move names reference prominent Nazi officers.
  • Vapor Wear: Her skimpy top makes clear she's not wearing a bra.
