"Taiyooooooooooh!"

The main character and player character of the first three games, and the eponymous character of Boktai 2. Django is the last of the Solar Children, and current wielder of the Gun Del Sol, which he inherited from his father, Red Ringo, the greatest vampire hunter. Django tries to follow his father's footsteps as a vampire hunter. Django is usually accompanied by his friend and mentor, Master Otenko, and he drags around a coffin, used to transport vampires after he has defeated them.

He is named after Django from the film of the same name.

  • Anime Hair
  • Cross-Dressing Voices
  • Badass: He's a vampire hunter by trade.
  • Dhampyr: Becomes a genuine half-vampire after being bitten by his father in 2 and promptly Piledrived. He switches between both human and vampire forms at will.
    • It's also possible he may have been this at birth as well, but as it's never stated whether his mother was a vampire or not, it's left ambiguous.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: The Gun Del Sol. Although most of the time, they're more like laser bullets.
  • The Gunslinger
  • Heroic Mime: Seems like this at first, but actually averted, as he usually has a few things to say at the end of 1 and 2. He also speaks regularly in 3, and in the crossover scenarios of Mega Man Battle Network 4 and 6.
  • Heroic Willpower: Firm believer in this. Sabata even thinks it's his strongest trait. It's implied that this is how he got his solar power back after being vampirized.
  • Light Is Good/The Power of the Sun: Django's power, whether he channels it into his weapons or magic, comes from sunlight.
  • Mix-and-Match Weapon: One of the main combat gimmicks in 1 and 3 is the ability to customize the Gun Del Sol, giving it different attack types and elemental attributes. It isn't present in 2 because the gun was stolen and broken.
    • Multi-Melee Master: Gets several types of melee weapons in 2 because of said theft. He retains both ranged- and melee-based fighting styles in 3.
  • Not Quite Dead: In the beginning of Boktai 3. He was presumed dead, but his vampire blood helped to save him. He was still stuck underground though, only broken out by Trinity falling from the sky.
  • Scarf of Asskicking: Inherited from his father. Otenko uses this connection to his father to encourage him when he's down.
  • Super Mode: Has two. One light, one dark.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: For the most part, averted; the only exception is in 2 as a screen-cleaning Desperation Attack if Django takes too much consecutive damage in vampire form. Save for this, Django is still very much himself.
  • You Killed My Father: Django's mission in the very beginning of the game is to defeat the Count, who killed his father. Subverted in that the Count actually turned his father into a Vampire, rather than killing him completely.
  • Young Gun: The Solar Boy, who has inherited his late father's weapon and must defeat the Immortals in his place.

Count of Groundsoaking Blood

Voiced by:
  • Akio Ōtsuka (JP)
  • Guy Perryman (ENG)

A powerful Immortal and the one who killed Django's father, or so Django thinks. No matter how many times he is beaten, he always seems to find a way to return.

  • Anime Hair: His hair looks like a pair of horns.
  • Badass Armfold: Constantly.
  • Blood Magic: He pulls this off in the third game to great effect, making it literally rain blood to deal constant damage to Django.
  • Blood Knight: He seems to really enjoy fighting Django.
  • Classical Movie Vampire: Well, he certainly looks the part.
  • Clothing Damage: He loses his cape once he takes enough damage in the first game.
  • Co-Dragons: With Sabata.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: He is the Immortal of Earth, after all.
  • The Dragon: To Hel.
  • Dragon Their Feet: Subverted and played straight. The Count does die before Hel- twice! But he returns afterward anyway to fight Django.
  • Evil Laugh: He lets one out whenever he appears.
  • From a Single Cell: Of a sort- as long as any of his bats survive, he can regenerate. Presumably he's pretty careful about leaving extra lives for himself.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: You can blast his floating swords back at him, and his charge attack can be used to burn him with the skylights.
  • Horror Hunger: As a vampire, he does suck blood, and will be glad to demonstrate the fact when you fight him, because...
  • Life Drain: If he manages to grab Django he will bite him, healing himself.
  • Monster Progenitor: He can turn other people into Immortals, such as Carmilla and Ringo.
  • No Name Given: We only ever know him as "The Count", which is more a title than anything.
  • Power Floats: How he moves around in battle.
  • Summon Magic: Can summon levitating swords and spiders in the first game.
  • Starter Villain: He's the first boss in the series, though don't think that's the last you'll see of him.
  • Taught by Experience: He'll run into skylights in the first battle, but he never repeats this mistake later on.
  • The Mole: He was orginally supposed to spy on Hel, but he developed a crush on her instead.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: He can turn into a swarm of bats at will, which is actually how he avoids death.
  • Weakened by the Light: It burns him, as you may expect.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: If the dairy Django finds in the first game is any indication, the Count finds his daily grind very boring. Fighting hunters, on the other hand...
  • Worthy Opponent: In their first battle, The Count dismisses Django as a child, but the second time he takes him seriously and refers to him by name.

Carmilla

Voiced by:
  • Bianca Allen (ENG)

  • All the Other Reindeer: Carmilla was hated when she was human due to her powers. Being turned into an Immortal by the Count probably didn't help.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: Her head and tail.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: She uses it both to whip Django and to try and smash him into the wall.
  • Blow You Away: She is the Immortal of wind, though this isn't really shown.
  • Boss Arena Idiocy: Yes, the mirrors can reflect her blasts into you, but they also let Django reflect her attacks back at her. Of course, given she can rotate the mirrors and break them at will, this is definitely a lesser example.
  • Breath Weapon: Fires petrifying blasts from her mouth.
  • Forced into Evil: She really has no choice but to fight Django- the only way that could be avoided is if Django doesn't attack her, as she points out.
  • Flunky Boss: Can call in cockatrices to help her.
  • Gorgeous Gorgon: She fits the description to a T, but the game refers to her as a banshee.
  • Hero Killer: Kills Otenko, though it doesn't stick.
  • Not Quite Dead: She returns in the third game as an ally.
  • Power Floats: Does this briefly before her battle.
  • Taken for Granite: Her attacks can petrify Django. She turns to stone herself when you slay her.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Can appear in her normal humanoid form or the monster form for battle.

Dainn

Duneyrr

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Duneyrr_2941.jpg
  • Apologetic Attacker: Duneyrr apologizes for having no choice but to kill Django before initiating battle with him.
    Duneyrr: Please don't let this shock you, but... I'm afraid you must die now. My brother told me not to fight you. But I'm so hungry. I've been asleep for such a long time. Waking up and having a Solar Child for breakfast is just what I need... So you see, I've really got no choice. So sorry."
  • Basement-Dweller: She may not be living in her mother's basement, but she does reside in the basement of San Miguel's cathedral.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Duneyrr's larvae crawl around the ground, ramming into her foes while she attacks aerially.
  • Chromatic Arrangement: Her yellow hair goes perfectly with Durathror's red hair and Dvalinn's blue outfit.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Duneyrr's moth form is a snowy white, which makes perfect sense since she is known as the White Duneyrr.
  • Friend to Bugs
  • Horror Hunger: Mmmm... There's nothing like the taste of a Solar Boy to brighten up your morning.
  • Pretty in Mink: Duneyrr wears a green coat decorated in white fur.
  • Spell My Name with a "The":
    Duneyrr: I am the White Duneyrr, the Sky-ruling Immortal..."
  • Wake-Up Fighting: Duneyrr is finally awakened from her deep sleep, and what is the first thing she does? Why, she chooses to attack Django!
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Obviously, she doesn't appear for long- woken up, beaten, Piledrived. She even laments that she was slain right after she had finally been awoken.

Hresvelgr

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Hresvelgr_8787.jpg
He will eat your face!

A member of the group of Immortals, working for Ratatosk. He appears in Boktai 3, at the top of the Ancient Solar Tree. He kidnaps Trinity, forcing Django to rescue him, where he is then defeated and purified. His standard non-combat appearance is that pictured to the side, however, it's actually just a disguise, formed by his folded wings. During battle, he unfolds his wings to reveal a far more frightening bird Immortal.

Ratatosk

Yes, people, this is a guy.

A member of the Demon Clan of Immortals and the main antagonist of Boktai 3. His plan is to conquer the earth using the Eternal Vanargand, who resides on the moon. Unlike most Immortals, he chooses not to follow the Will of the Galaxy, instead working for his own goals. He appears in the timelines of both Boktai 3 and Lunar Knights. In Boktai 3, he is defeated by Django and Otenko in the Dark Castle. However in the Lunar Knights timeline, Django is already dead at that point, and so his plan is successful. He gains the title "Lord of Destruction" and conquers the earth. Later on, he is greatly wounded in a battle against Trinity, and is eventually killed with Trinity by Dumas.
