    Wolf Fang Brigade 

A group started by Rouga Zanma to liberate Seijou Academy from the tyranny of Agito of the Dark.

Rouga Zanma

Playable in: Both games

Kunagi Tenrou

Rouga's childhood friend and fiance. As a child she was extremely ill, and her brother Kamui attempted to cure her. In the process, he accidentally unsealed the Demonic Boundary Hole, turning Kunagi into a half-demon and giving her powers she could barely control.
Playable in: Both games

Senna Kyoudou

An amnesiac girl that Rouga fights one night and quickly makes a part of the Wolf Fang Brigade. Polite and kindhearted off the battlefield, but dangerous and cold on it.
Playable in: Both games

Heita Zinnai

One of the first members of the Wolf Fang Brigade, a young man determined to prove his manliness to class rep Sanae Hibiki. He has a Super Mode known as Super Heita.
Playable in: Both games

  • Calling Your Attacks: HEITA KICK! HEITA SHOOT! SUPER RISING DRAGON!
  • Cast from Lifespan: His Decade Knuckle. One use = 10 years. In 'BBB' and 'BBBR', this is reflected by reducing his HP to 1 whenever he uses it. BBBs version of Super Heita takes this a step further and loses health with every attack he makes.
  • De Terminator: No matter how many times he's beaten up or knocked down, he will *not* stay that way.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Heita's Big Bang Break, the Decade Knuckle, though he's not aware of it. True to its name, it shaves 10 years off his life every time he uses it. In Big Bang Age, using it seven times causes him to die, which is actually needed for his last star.
  • Hot-Blooded: Everything Heita does, he does by shouting at the top of his voice.
  • Megaton Punch: Decade Knuckle.
  • Power Dyes Your Hair: As Super Heita, he's blond instead of brunet.
  • Rated M for Manly: Tries to invoke this. Fails.

Burai Yamamoto

Head of Seijou Academy's Boxing Club and a former enforcer for Agito. He only took up the position to earn money for his sick sister. Joins with Rouga's Wolf Fang Brigade after Agito is defeated.
Playable in: Both games

Kendou and Kyuudou Nakanashi

Twin sisters that attend Seijou Academy, and join with Rouga to overthrow Agito.
Playable in: Both games

  • Dual Wielding: Kendou uses two shinai in combat.
  • Hot-Blooded: Kendou. Also fits under the Spirited Competitor archetype.
  • Meaningful Name: Kendou and Kyuudou are named after the fighting styles that they use in battle, swordplay and archery respectively.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Kendou is brash and hotblooded, while Kyuudou is shy and retiring. Their styles of combat also fit their personalities—Kendou is a close-ranged fighter while Kyuudou prefers archery.
  • Shrinking Violet: Kyuudou.
  • Twincest: In Big Bang Age, they were a little... too close.

Miyazato Corps (Erika Miyazato and her friends Saki and Shouko)

Playable in: BBBR

Erika is one of the students that objected to Agito's rule over Seijou Academy. She got jealous of the support Rouga was getting and challenged him to a fight to see who would fight Agito. Rouga defeated her, and all three girls (unwillingly) joined up with the Wolf Fang Brigade.

Kinako Tsukuyomi

Playable in: BBBR

The president of Seijou Academy's Occult Research Society. She joins Rouga when approached during the events of Big Bang Age.

     Rivals/Antagonists 

Agito of the Dark (Agito Yamazaki)

The former gang leader of Seijou Academy. A deviant, sadist, and general nutcase who was defeated and overthrown through the efforts of Rouga and the Wolf Fang Brigade.
Playable in: Both games

Daigo Hotta

An ambitious, fiery gang leader from the Steel School. He has a crush on Sanzou Kongoumaru's younger sister Aya and will go to any lengths to impress her.
Playable in: Both games

Sanzou Kongoumaru

The leader of Sensouji Academy, known as "The Iron Wall of Kongoumaru". Has a soft spot for his younger sister Aya, and does not approve of Daigo's crush on her.
Playable in: Both games

  • Eyes Always Shut: Much in the same vein as Burai.
  • Japanese Delinquents: One of the more honorable types.
  • Mighty Glacier: In BBA, he had zero evasion, but the most HP of any character. Combined with an 80% counter rating, no matter what you hit him with, he was guaranteed to take it and keep going.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Completely topless except for his belt....which has a TELEPHONE as the centerpiece.
    • Reality Ensues: That massive size of his means he can't use any regular phone. His sister built him the telephone belt as a result.

Ren Idagawa

The leader of 750 School, and the head of the largest biker gang in Kanto, the Gokuren. He is Rouga's primary rival, since he shares Rouga's interest of conquering the nation.
Playable in: Both games

  • Badass Biker: In Age, there was a sidequest built around him challenging Japan's other big-name bikers to drag races.
  • Badass Longcoat: In a bright red color.
  • Cool Shades
  • Japanese Delinquents: Of the rougher, biker kind.
  • Please Kill Me If It Satisfies You: A former member of the Gokuren, Kyouko Senpuuji, hates Ren for being involved in, or causing, her husband's death. Ren feels so guilty about this that he is willing to let her kill him without even fighting back. In Big Bang Age, this meant that having Senpuuji made recruiting Ren impossible, as she would kill him on sight.
  • Trying to Catch Me Fighting Dirty: Utilizes concrete blocks, molotovs and even soda cans into his moveset.
  • Use Your Head: Has a headbutt as a regular throw and a close-range super move. The latter can be charged up for extra oomph.
  • Wooden Katanas Are Even Better: Uses a hardwood bokutou to attack with and to hit his projectiles farther.

Devil Daigo

Playable in: Both games

Kamui Tenrou

The Final Boss of BBBR. He is Kunagi's older brother, who was corrupted and driven insane by the powers within the Demonic Boundary Hole that he accidentally unsealed when he attempted to find a cure for Kunagi's sickness.
Playable in: BBBR

  • Badass Longcoat
  • Big Bad: Of both BBBR and Big Bang Age.
  • Cain and Abel: The unwilling Cain to Kunagi's Abel.
  • Demonic Possession: As a result of trying to cure Kunagi.
  • Literal Split Personality: It is not observed in BBB and BBBR, but the possession mentioned above forcibly splits Kamui into two people. The "good" Kamui made sure that Senna made it to the Wolf Fang Brigade and sealed her memories, while the "evil" Kamui is the one that distributed the Mac Guffins that created the "Special Students", and is faced as the final boss.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Opening the Demonic Boundary Hole turned him into a demon hybrid.
  • Evil Former Friend: To Rouga.
  • Shock and Awe: His attacks are lightning themed.
  • Shout-Out: Several of his attack animations are taken frame for frame from Setsuna.
  • SNK Boss: He moves incredibly fast, hits very hard, and doesn't have a crouch animation. He can be extremely frustrating to face off against.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: He is the Big Bad after all.

    Other 

Hanny

Alicesoft's Mascot character, encountered as an enemy in many Alicesoft games. The race as a whole is called Haniwa, based off of Japanese clay dolls, and Kunagi finds them cute.
Playable in: Both games

  • The Cameo: From other Alicesoft games.
  • Lethal Joke Character: At first glance, Hanny isn't that great a character, and physically speaking he is still miles behind the rest of the cast. However, he can do a significant amount of damage with proper use of specials and his weapon switching style. Additionally, unlike Manbou, Hanny's hitbox is rather small, making him difficult to hit.
  • One-Gender Race: Averted. Female Haniwa are visible on the Haniwa Island stage.
  • Path of Inspiration: Age has a cult built around the Haniwa. If you made the mistake of joining them, although you could freely recruit powerful Haniwa units, you would have to attend their ceremonies regularly - or they would kill you.
  • Stance System: Can switch between a short-ranged sword style and a long-ranged wand style.

Manbou (Sunfish)

A generic enemy encountered in Big Bang Age.
Playable in: Both games

  • The Cameo: From Big Bang Age.
  • Joke Character: Manbou is weak and generally powerless, and doesn't have as many tricks as Hanny does.
