    Other Recurring Characters 


Beginning in Lincle, the player is given an in-game avatar, otherwise known as a "Q-pro". In Lincle, it appears in Standard Mode during songs, fighting Random Encounters and bosses. In tricoro and SPADA, it only shows up in-song during select boss songs, but now on the results screen, each of the player rivals' Q-pros appears alongside him or her.

Additionally, in tricoro onwards, the player's Q-pro is the protagonist of a series of event arcs.

  • Batter Up: One of the weapon options is a nail bat.
  • Cute and Psycho: One of the face options, "rapika2", gives the Q-pro a shadowy smile.
  • High School A.U.: Step Up mode in tricoro puts your Q-pro in the role of a Japanese high school student.
  • It's a Wonderful Failure:
    • In Lincle, if the player fails the song on a Easy or Normal gauge, the Q-pro is knocked out of the screen.
    • In tricoro, it does its crying animation when its corresponding player is bested by a rival, or if the player fails a Dani'nintei course.
  • Japanese Honorifics: The Professor always addresses the Q-pro with "-kun", regardless of what gender it is.
  • Late for School: One of the possible Q-pro accessories is a piece of toast in its mouth.
  • Player Character
  • Super-Deformed
  • Virtual Paper Doll: The player can dress the Q-pro in all kinds of different outfits, from original combinations to parts based on boss characters, to looking like a jubeat machine.

The Final Boss of the Lincle Kingdom extra stage system. Based on Cybele, a goddess of fertility, Cuvelia represents Rebirth. Cuvelia is an angelic goddess-like being who resides within the mech Cuvele.

  • The Cameo: The head of Cuvele looks exactly like the head of the robot dog DJ from SIRIUS.

tricoro continues the tradition of unlock systems with Excuse Plots. This time, the player's Q-pro is involved in three different events: Legend Cross, Omega Attack, and Bokura no Uchuu Sensou ("Our War of the Worlds").

Legend Cross bosses provide examples of:

  • Lost Forever: The event closed on December 5, 2012.
  • No Name Given: So far, Konami has not named any of the Legend Cross bosses.
  • Recurring Boss: Each boss was listed twice. You had to defeat it on one listing without using any chart-altering modifiers, and on the other listing with the Random modifier activatednote .

Omega Attack

Lupika and Repika

The Final Bosses of Omega Attack. You encounter them in Omega Attack's final unlockable song, "Proof of the existence", as well as in a cutscene after unlocking the song's Another chart.
