The main character of the story. Aoba lives a peaceful life in the East part of Midorijima, working part-time at a junk shop called Heibon and living with his Granny. He possesses a mysterious power that allows him to convince others to do what he wants with his voice. One day, he receives a message on his Coil with the subject title “Please save me”. After accidentally downloading the file attached to the message, he discovers that the file is a game called 'Silent Oath', where he has to rescue a princess. The game ends abruptly, but leaves Aoba with an ominous feeling. His Allmate is Ren.

  • A Date with Rosie Palms: In Virus/Trip's ending, Aoba is regularly forced to "make a show" for them.
  • Aroused by Their Voice: Invoked in-universe. Aoba can get people to do what he wants by dropping his voice to a certain tenor.
  • Artificial Human
  • Badass: Can be this in some routes.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: Aoba's Scrap can permanently destroy other people's minds if abused (and he does unintentionally do this to Mizuki in the first part of the game) or reduce them to mindless puppets, but he in no way wants to destroy or hurt anyone and ends up using his power to destroy only the mental demons harming his love interest in most routes. Further confirmed in Ren's route, where Aoba is specifically referred to as a "child of destruction" who can destroy the world and then rebuild a better world in its place.
    • However, his alternate, Sly Blue, wasn't nice at all.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: One of the nicest guys in the cast, but holds a dangerous power that can break minds and an alternate personality who won't hesitate to use it for cruel reasons, particularly in the bad endings.
  • Big Damn Heroes: In Ren's route, Aoba is about to pass out from being beaten up by Virus and Trip, and his friends all burst into the scene to rescue him. Unless you are aiming for the bad ending, that is.
  • Bishounen
  • Broken Bird: In Clear's and Virus/Trip bad ending. In the first one, it is because Aoba was being experimented on by Toue and then had his limbs, eyes and vocal chords removed) and in the second he is abducted and used as a Sex Slave for Trip and Virus whenever they please.
  • Compelling Voice: Has this due to his 'Scrap' ability. Overusing this causes Aoba's alternate personality to take over.
  • Designer Babies: Aoba and Sei were genetically engineered by Toue.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Can act as this very often, mostly when exasperated by the antics of the other characters.
  • Duality Motif: While both of Aoba's eyes are the same, he has noticeable central heterochromia; his eyes are sage green around the outside and brown closer to the pupil. Nine spells out the meaning of it upon meeting Aoba for the first time.
    Nine: "How mysterious... there are two colors mixed in your eyes. You don't know which is the right one, so you won't pick. You're at a standstill, locked away in your own shell... or something like that."
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Koujaku thought Aoba was a girl when they were younger. Other characters don't mistake Aoba for a girl, but his fair skin and long hair are commented on several times.
  • Downer Ending: For Aoba that is every bad ending. And they are called Bad endings for a reason.
  • Fate Worse Than Death: Oh boy, where to start? In Noiz and Ren's endings Aoba is left stuck in their broken mind, where he is either subjected to being eaten alive or to be left in a void where mere touch causes lacerations and intense bleeding. In Clear's and Virus/Trip ending, Aoba is abducted, imprisoned and turned into Sex Slave. To make matters worse, Clear removes Aoba limbs, eyes and vocal chords while Virus and Trip love to use their allmates to torment Aoba.
  • Hair Decorations: Gets a pair of feather hair ornaments as a present from Mink at the end of Mink's route in Re:connect.
  • Happily Adopted: By Nine and Haruka.
  • Heroic BSOD: After failing scrap in Koujaku bad end, which cause "The other Aoba" to surface and permanently take control.
  • Hates Being Touched: Feels pain whenever people touch his hair, not to mention when it's cut. This is why Aoba keeps his hair long. It vanishes after Toue is defeated and Aoba even lets Koujaku cut his hair.
  • I Have You Now, My Pretty: In Clear and Virus/Trip bad end.
  • It's All My Fault: Every time he fails scrap or put people in trouble.
  • I Will Wait for You: In Aoba's scenario of RE:connect, he, along with Tae, are still waiting for his adopted parents to return home.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Due to an accident in his teenage years when he was playing Rhyme, he was knocked unconscious and lost his memories.
  • Locked into Strangeness: His hair turns permanently white in Koujaku's bad ending (although he already had an odd hair colour in the first place).
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Though his long hair is justified since having it cut causes him physical pain. In Koujaku's good end, Aoba allowed Koujaku to cut his hair since the pain in his hair completely disappearded after Toue is defeated.
  • Love Martyr
  • Luminescent Blush: Gets this when Noiz kisses him in episode 3 of the anime.
  • Mr. Fanservice
  • Not a Morning Person: Koujaku relentlessly teases him about how difficult it is to wake him up in the morning.
  • Only Sane Man: At times, aside from Ren, Aoba is the only voice of reason in his little group.
  • Phlebotinum Rebel: Aoba was genetically engineered by Toue and this is why he has his power in the first place. Despite that fact, he does all he can to stop Toue's plans.
  • Power of Love: Uses this to help his love interests overcome their problems in their routes.
    • His love interests also help him fend off a hostile takeover from his Super-Powered Evil Side with their support near the end of each route.
  • Rape as Drama: In some of the bad endings and twice during Mink's route.
  • Robosexual: If Aoba pursues Clear.
  • Self Cest: Aoba has sex with Ren in his mind. After Sei gives Ren his body, this is upgraded to Twin Cest.
  • Sex Slave: Made into one by Clear and Virus/Trip in their bad end.
  • Split Personality: Aoba has two. There's his Super-Powered Evil Side, who comes out whenever Aoba is in danger, and Ren, who is supposed to act as a mediator between Aoba and his evil side.
  • Split-Personality Merge: Accomplished in Ren's route, when Aoba accepts his other self.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: The 'other Aoba' nags at Aoba whether he faces a trigger, the main one being when he uses Scrap.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: His eyes turn into this whenever he uses Scrap.
  • The Heart
  • Trauma-Induced Amnesia
  • Uke: He's the bottom one in every single relationship, much to his annoyance.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Becomes this in Koujaku's bad ending.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

Click here  to see Koujaku as he appears in Scrap
Aoba's childhood friend and errant hairdresser. He doesn't actually own a shop; rather, he sets up and cuts hair in random places. He's quite popular with the ladies and tends to have one or two hanging off of him at any given time. Despite this, he tends to put Aoba's needs first, rushing to aid Aoba whenever he needs help. He also leads a gang in the Benishigure district, who do their best to help the residents out. His Allmate is Beni.


Voiced by: Satoshi Hino
Click here  to see Noiz as he appears in his good ending
A heavily-pierced young man obsessed with the virtual reality game Rhyme. Aoba first meets Noiz when the latter drags him into an impromptu Rhyme match, although Aoba is unaware of Noiz's identity at first. Noiz and Aoba properly meet after Noiz breaks into Aoba's room and hacks his computers. His Allmate is Pseudo Rabbit.

  • Abusive Parents: Instead of helping Noiz deal with his inability to feel pain, his parents locked Noiz away in a section of his house and ignored him. Noiz's parents complained about the shame Noiz had brought on them, with Noiz's dad wishing that Noiz had never been born. Within earshot of their kid.
    • In his good ending, he goes back to them and they all make amends. Noiz even agrees to take on the family business.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking
  • Badass: A more reserved one, given his The Smart Guy status.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: When he comes back after the time skip.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Due to the abuse that Noiz's parents heaped on him, his lack of social skills, and now everyone else in his life used him for money or sex, Aoba is perhaps the only person who genuinely wanted to help and protect Noiz. This is one reason why Noiz starts ever-so-slowly opening up to Aoba, and eventually comes to care for him.
  • Big Eater: Buys a ton of food when exploring the Green Playground.
  • Bishōnen
  • Bookends: Noiz leans across the counter and kisses Aoba suddenly at the beginning of the game, then does the same again after he reunites with him in his good ending.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Late in his route via Toue. Aoba has to use Scrap on him to snap him out of it.
  • But Not Too Foreign: His family lives in Germany, but there are no comments made during the game to suggest he's completely foreign, if at all. While the game doesn't give much information on Noiz's heritage, fandom seems to lean towards him being half-German. At the end of his route, he asks Aoba to move to Germany with him when he goes back.
    • There's a hint early on when Noiz buys food and he has no knowledge of the names of the food he bought. He ends up asking Aoba for their names and Aoba comments that it's strange he would ask about such a thing.
    • Drama CD Vol. 4 reveals that Noiz is 1/4th Japanese and that his family as well as many of their servants are fluent in the language.
  • But Now I Must Go: Though he comes back, and the reason he left is eventually revealed.
  • Casual Kink: Aoba is pretty certain he has a pain kink. Justified, once his Feel No Pain back story comes to light. He actively sought out anything that might cause him some kind of sensation. However, at the end of his route, with his ability to feel unlocked, he's definitely not put off by the idea.
  • The Cynic: Noiz does not understand why anyone would want to help him without getting something in return. He believes people are innately selfish, and that he's perfectly capable of living on his own without the love and trust of other people. This is the notion that Aoba tries to destroy in Noiz's Scrap sequence, which ends either in success or in failure.
  • Disability Superpower: Kinda. With an inability to feel pain. he's a very competent fighter.
  • Embarrassing First Name: In Drama CD Vol. 4 after much prodding from Aoba, Noiz confesses that his birth name is Wim (which can be short for Wilhelm), but would prefer Aoba to continue calling him "Noiz".
  • Feel No Pain: Noiz is incapable of feeling pain except on his tongue. He can feel sensation on his skin, but not very well. For most of his life, he was unable to sympathize with others due to his inability to feel pain. As a consequence, he couldn't regulate his behaviour properly, leading to trouble for his parents. His parents found him annoying and left him.
  • Genius Bruiser: He packs a mean punch and mean computer hacker skills.
  • Hates Being Touched: He's quick to pull away and snap at Aoba whenever he gets injured.
  • He Cleans Up Nicely: In his good ending, he takes out his piercings and puts on a suit, and he looks very nice indeed.
  • Knowledge Broker: Noiz makes a living off of sharing information, usually about Rhyme.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: He came from a wealthy family, although his parents found him a nuisance and essentially abandoned him.
  • No Social Skills: Painfully justified. His inability to feel pain, and parental neglect meant Noiz grew up with no basic understanding of sympathy, empathy or human interaction. When he made it to Midorijima, his social skills were only developed through Rhyme and people who were only interested in his body or money, so he developed a rather cold 'give and take' attitude towards people and social relations. When Aoba likens him to a kid, he's not far off the mark; he really is like a kid learning how to interact nicely with people for the first time.
  • Not So Stoic: He shows confusion and surprise a few times during his route.
  • Now Let Me Carry You: So appreciative of all that Aoba did for him, Noiz went back home, attempted to patch things up with his neglectful family, and took responsibility in his family's company all to ensure a happy life for Aoba. The trope is made literal when Noiz picks Aoba up and carries him out of Heibon, which is parallel to the way Aoba carried Noiz out of the collapsing Oval Tower.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Koujaku's Red
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: In his good ending.
  • Sugar and Ice Personality: Though the sugar is buried so deep beneath the ice that Aoba has to use Scrap to reach it, there is a good guy under all the reserved cynicism.
  • The Stoic: Largely due to Feel No Pain
  • Techno Wizard: Boy, can he hack. He hacks Aoba's computer to find out more about Ren; he tracks down where Tae is being held and plays the role of support when it comes to rescuing her; hacks the security system at Oval Tower in his route, wiping all trace of him and Aoba on the floor they were on; and in the true route he hacks himself, Koujaku, Clear and Mink into locked a Rhyme field to rescue Aoba and Ren.
  • What Is This Thing You Call Love?: Has never experienced a relationship where the other person isn't using him for his wealth or body. To say Aoba's no-strings-attached care and worry for him confuses the hell out of him is putting it lightly.
  • When He Smiles: Aoba notices that Noiz almost looks like a different person when he finally smiles in the end. This also serves as a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming‎.
  • Younger Than They Look: Is actually 19 years old, despite looking older. Aoba is shocked.
  • Your Door Was Open: His first non-costumed scene in the game. Aoba is not impressed.


Voiced by: Rinta Hayakawa aka Kenichirou Matsuda
Click here  to see Mink as he appears in his good ending
A mysterious, stoic ex-con who is determined to take down Toue. His Allmate is Tori, later renamed Lulakan in re:connect.

  • A Dog Named Dog: His cockatiel All-Mate is called Tori, which translates to bird. This trope is subverted in that Mink didn't choose the name; he actually didn't bother naming his All-Mate at all. Aoba uses 'Tori' to refer to the All-Mate for lack of a better name.
    • Though in re:connect, he finally gives Tori a proper name. He's now called Lulakan.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking
  • Badass
  • Bishōnen
  • Bastard Boyfriend: Throughout his route he does next-to-nothing but abuse Aoba, physically or otherwise. Not to mention it was his fault Aoba was nearly gang-raped in the Common Route.
    • He also rapes Aoba three times (Aoba is too intoxicated to consent the first time) during his route and beats the living crap out of Aoba when he protests.
    • However, he is much more gentle and genuine with Aoba in re:connect. Their relationship develops into a much healthier one, as seen in the Summer Side Story and other post-re:connect material, and Mink never assaults or abuses Aoba again.
  • The Big Guy
  • Brutal Honesty: He definitely doesn't sugarcoat anything in his route, and he's quick to call Aoba out on what he considers to be a self-centered attitude with a guilt complex. He's nicer about things in re:connect, though.
  • Death Seeker: Mink has no intention of surviving his confrontation with Toue. He was only hanging on long enough to avenge his family. This explains why he treats everyone, including Aoba, as tools; since he was planning to commit suicide, any emotional attachments were useless.
    • Though he changes this outlook after Aoba uses Scrap on him.
  • Determinator
  • Dreadlock Warrior
  • Easily Forgiven: By Aoba.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Mink switches from the dreadlocks to a more natural, relaxed hairstyle in his good ending.
  • Eye Color Change: The final shot of Mink in his good end from the first game shows his once cold, dark blue eyes are now a much warmer and striking gold color. Aoba thinks they're very pretty.
  • Freudian Excuse: His entire clan was wiped out by Toue due to refusing to give him their tribal secret. Mink felt such deep despair over this, he focused on solely nothing but revenge on Toue, and committing suicide once he's done.
  • Hair Decorations: Wears pink feathers in his ponytail and at the ends of his braids. Later the feathers are replaced with a small dream catcher.
  • Hey, You!: When Aoba tries to find out Tori's name, Tori states that Mink refers to him by 'Hey' or 'You'.
  • Jerkass: Oh yes. Though he's undergone some Character Development by the time re:connect rolls around.
  • Karma Houdini: Rapes and beats Aoba, is Easily Forgiven, and shows no regret for his actions in the first game.
    • He feels deep guilt towards Aoba in re:connect, however.
  • Kuudere: Type 1, but shows shades of Type 2. Though Aoba has to struggle through a lot in his route before he gets to see the warmer side of Mink.
  • Last Guy Wins: If he's the love interest.
  • Magical Native American: Mink's aesthetic and people seem to be heavily influenced by Native Americans... and ants. Apparently only they produce magical pheromones which force people to do their biding.
  • Off with His Head!: Does this to Aoba in his bad end.
  • One Head Taller: Mink easily towers over Aoba's 175 cm (5'9") with his 189 cm (6'2").
  • Rape as Drama: Rapes Aoba twice in his route.
    • By re:connect, he deeply regrets it and is surprised Aoba doesn't hate him for it.
  • Real Men Wear Pink
  • Religious Bruiser: Mink can be seen both pummeling people until their faces cave in with his bare hands and offering prayers to his people's gods.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Against Toue, who murdered his whole clan.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Smokes a pipe.
  • The Team Benefactor: Mink is the main reason why Aoba and the rest of the main cast can even begin to look for Tae and Morphine near the end of the Common Route.
  • The Unfettered: His defining trait.

Click here  to see Clear without his gas mask
A very strange young man that seemingly falls out of the sky. Clear constantly wears a gas mask for no apparent reason and insists on calling Aoba his 'master'. Strangely, he does not have an Allmate.

  • Adorkable
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Inverted. Clear was originally designed to subjugate the residents of Midorijima using his Magic Music by Toue. When he was declared defective, the researcher in charge of Clear's disposal took Clear, reprogrammed him and changed his serial number. This granted Clear free will, allowing him to develop his own good-natured personality and to choose his own master, Aoba.
  • Artificial Human: Clear is actually an android created by Toue. He, along with the Alphas, were created as part of Toue's scheme to brainwash and control the people of Midorijima. Clear was deemed defective, however, and was slated for disposal. Clear's 'grandpa' was the person in charge of disposal, found and adopted Clear as his own.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: After destroying his key lock, he beats down the Alphas mercilessly; according to Aoba, he completely foregoes defense.
  • Back from the Dead
  • Beauty Mark: Clear has two on his chin.
  • Berserk Button: Hurting Aoba.
  • Bishōnen: Underneath his mask.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Manages to beat the crap out of the hypnotized Dry Juice members while shouting 'Stop the violence!' He also manages to single-handedly take out a group of Yakuza thugs in the Platinum Jail.
  • Came from the Sky: How Aoba and Clear first meet. Clear lands in front of Aoba, having seemingly fallen from the sky, nearly giving Aoba a heart-attack.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Aoba has to tell him that umbrellas can be used when it is raining. He breaks into Aoba's house by cutting the lock off of the veranda door and doesn't see a problem with entering through odd places.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass
  • Determinator: Throughout his route, Clear goes through extreme physical trauma, including (but not limited to) acid being thrown on him, being viciously beaten, and feeling the pain of his mechanical body literally breaking from the inside out. And through all of this, the most he says about it is "I'm fine", and he often fights back in spite of it.
  • Disney Death: His body completely breaks down after the fight with the Alphas. Granny manages to repair him.
  • Don't Look at Me!: Is absolutely terrified that Aoba will hate him if he sees Clear's face, since he was told that his face was unlike other people's. Aoba has to reassure him multiple times that he won't hate Clear no matter what he looks like before Clear will take his mask off.
  • Evil Albino: Toue intended for Clear to be this.
  • Gas Mask, Longcoat: Constantly wears a gas mask for no apparent reason initially and sports a long white coat.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal: Clear suffers more physical abuse than any other character. He falls off a roof at least once; gets beaten up by yakuza members; has sulfuric acid poured onto his (masked) face, which sets his hair on fire. He isn't permanently damaged from any of these events due to his regenerating abilities. It's only when he fights the Alphas that his self-healing properties break down.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Stabs himself in the head to break Toue's control over him. Later, he breaks down completely after having sex with Aoba.
  • Keigo
  • Let's Get Dangerous: Starting from when yakuza try to attack Aoba in front of him, he practically adopts this as a dogma.
  • Made of Iron: Almost literally. As a super-advanced Ridiculously Human Robot, Clear is likely made of some other kind of metal, but he's definitely durable. He falls/jumps off roofs at least twice, gets the crap beaten out of him by yakuza members and gets sulfuric acid poured onto his face, with no lasting damage done to Clear.
  • Magic Music: His 'jellyfish song'. It has a calming effect on Aoba and is used to counteract the Alpha's incapacitating songs in the Oval Tower.
  • Mayfly-December Romance: The main topic of his Good Re Connect route. Both Aoba and Clear are painfully aware that Clear will live on much, much longer than Aoba. In the end, they both choose to make the most of the time they have together, day by day and not dwell on what will happen after Aoba dies.
  • Naked Apron: But with his mask still on! Aoba is not pleased.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: After he takes off his gas mask, the further his story is uncovered, the more he turns serious, and all the pity to you if you decide to mess with Aoba in any way while he's anywhere near.
  • Pinocchio Syndrome: It's heavily implied that Clear wants to be human, but he comes to terms with never being able to be very gracefully even as he's dying, during which Aoba will tell him that he's the most human person he's ever known.
  • Ridiculously Human Robots: Clear and the Alphas. Clear can cry, eat, love and appears to have a fully-functional set of sexual organs. You've gotta hand it to Toue; when they want to build an android, they do a great job of it.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: His feelings towards Aoba fall under this, as, during his re:connect, he shoots down even the slightest possibility of ever loving anyone but Aoba in his lifetime.
  • Super Senses: His hearing is highly advanced. It's the first hint that he's not a real human.
  • There Was a Door: He breaks the lock on Aoba's veranda to get into his room. A little later, Aoba even tells him to come in through the door next time because breaking in through the window and falling from the sky are not normal methods of entry.
  • Tranquil Fury: When facing down Yakuza thugs in Platinum Jail.
  • Undying Loyalty: Aoba-san is Clear's Master!
  • White Hair, Black Heart: He was originally supposed to be this, but his "grandfather" fixed him up so he would function differently from his brothers. Played straighter in his bad ending.
  • Younger Than They Look: Sort of. He was created a few years before the story began.

Aoba's cute dog All-Mate with a very deep voice.



Voiced by: Suga Kiya aka Junji Majima
Virus and Trip are long-time acquaintances of Aoba, having met during Aoba's adolescence. The pair look nearly identical, causing people to assume that they are twins. Virus is more polite than Trip and appears to be the more chatty of the two.

  • Always Identical Twins: Totally subverted. He and Trip explicitly state that they are not twins. Their similar appearances are pointed out by Aoba and Koujaku.
  • Affably Evil: After he reveals himself to be one of the leaders of Morphine.
  • Bishōnen
  • Blonde Guys Are Evil: He's one of the leaders of Morphine, a gang that kidnaps other gangs and brainwashes them. In one of Ren bad endings, they kidnap Aoba and abuse him (psychically, mentally and sexually) every day just because they think it's fun.
  • For the Evulz: Their primary motivation seems to be interest in Aoba.
  • It Is Pronounced Tro PAY: His name is actually pronounced as "Weerus"
  • It Amused Me: His motivation for everything he do.
  • Keigo
  • Megane
  • Punishment Box : Left Aoba in very small one for three days, because Aoba didn't want to "make a show" for him. Aoba is so traumatized by it that he's obeying every command, in fear that Virus will put him there again.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Wears a dark-blue suit and tie.
  • Shonen Hair: Although not identical to Trip's hairstyle.
  • The Sociopath: Virus (and Trip) fit this trope to a T. Completely amoral, superfically charming, only seeking "fun and interesting things", and doing most anything they wish purely on impulse, all while being completely incapable of experiencing any sort of depth of emotion. It's all but stated within the game that they fall directly under this spectrum.
  • Sociopathic Hero : In Ren's good end, he and Trip save Ren from the collapsing Oval Tower and drive him to the Midorijima hospital. Partially because they thought he was Sei, partially because "they were curious" and partially because "they just felt like it". Aoba is understandably confused.
  • Snakes Are Sexy: His Allmate is a black snake. He's often using it to abuse Aoba.
  • Stepford Smiler: Type B, Both Virus and Trip act and look friendly at first, but in Re:Connect, Aoba describes them as empty shells who manipulate people for fun
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist : Very friendly and polite, which makes him all the more terryfying.
  • Stoic Spectacles: While Virus isn't stoic, exactly, he is always calm and composed.
  • Yakuza

Virus and Trip are long-time acquaintances of Aoba, having met during Aoba's adolescence. They are very similar in appearance, despite not actually being twins. Trip is much more casual in his speech than Virus. He calls himself and Virus 'fans' of Aoba; they kidnap and enslave Aoba instead of handing him over to Toue in Ren's bad ending.

  • Always Identical Twins: Subverted. Virus and Trip aren't actually twins: they have different birthdays in their intros.
  • Affably Evil: After he reveals himself to be the other leader of Morphine.
  • Bishōnen
  • Blonde Guys Are Evil: He's one of the leaders of Morphine, a gang that kidnaps other gangs and brainwashes them.
  • For the Evulz: Their primary motivation seems to be interest in Aoba.
  • It Amused Me: His motivation for everything they do to Aoba.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: In Re:Connect, Aoba notes that his childlike curiosity and innocence is utterly terrifying, as it drives Trip to do things such as suffocate Aoba with sweets and call his lion Allmate over to bully and abuse him.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist : Very friendly and polite, which makes him all the more terryfying.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Wears a Waistcoat of Style, a tie and suspenders.
  • Shonen Hair
  • The Sociopath: Trip (and Virus) fit this trope to a T. Completely amoral, superfically charming, only seeking "fun and interesting things", and doing most anything they wish purely on impulse, all while being completely incapable of experiencing any sort of depth of emotion.

  • Yakuza

Aoba's 'Granny', a tough, no-nonsense woman.

  • Almighty Grandma: Considering she can make Aoba's group (which consists of three gang leaders and Clear) behave with a few stern words and some cuffs to the head, she definitely qualifies.
  • Apron Matron: She doesn't take crap from anybody, but she's still a caring grandmother towards Aoba.
  • The Atoner: Tae was a researcher whose findings were used to give Aoba and Sei their mind-control powers. However, she didn't know that her research would be used by Toue for his Designer Babies. She felt guilty about her research being used for this purpose and took an apparently still-born Aoba away so that he could have a proper funeral.
  • Cool Old Lady: Granny can make Aoba's group of misfits behave with only a stern lecture and cuffs to the head. She also invites them to eat her delicious cooking.
  • Good Grandma: Tae is shown to be a caring (if gruff) guardian to Aoba.
  • I Will Wait for You: In Aoba's scenario of RE:connect, she, along with Aoba, are still waiting for Nine and Haruka to return home.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Alongside Yoshie and Haga, she's one of the few adults encountered on Midorijima who isn't corrupt, evil, under mind control, or some combination therein.
  • Supreme Chef: According to Aoba and his friends, just about everything she makes is absolutely delicious.
  • You Gotta Have Pink Hair


Voiced by: Nanbu Tetsuyoshi


Aoba's boss at Heibon. He's a fairly mild-mannered and easy-going person... most of the time.

  • Beauty Mark: Has a fairly prominent mole on the left side of his face, right between his nose and mouth.
  • Benevolent Boss: Is genuinely kind to Aoba and appreciative of the latter's help.
  • Berserk Button: He doesn't like being called baldy. At all. Nao, Kio and Mio learn this the hard way.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Along with Tae and Yoshie, Haga is one of the few trustworthy older adults in Aoba's life. The three stay behind to distract the police when Akushima shows up at Aoba's house, allowing Aoba and co. to escape.

Click here  to see Mizuki as he appears in Morphine
Aoba's old friend and leader of the gang, Dry Juice. Mizuki runs a tattoo/bar called Black Needle.

  • Adorkable: He's completely flustered and embarrassed when Sly Blue kisses him in RE:Code.
  • Amicable Exes: Not that Aoba remembers it, but RE:Code shows there was something going on between Sly Blue and Mizuki.
  • Ascended Extra: He gets his own route in RE:Code, with his sprite joining the rest of the guys on the main menu upon completion.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: By Morphine.
  • Bishōnen
  • Gratuitous English: Dry Juice.
  • Mind Rape: Has his mind twisted by Morphine, causing him to threaten Granny in an attempt to get Aoba to join him in Morphine. Aoba also subjects Mizuki to this, albeit accidentally.
  • Parental Abandonment: As a baby, he was abandoned by his birth parents in front of a hospital and was later adopted by a nice couple.
  • Sanity Slippage: The poor guy's mind breaks after Aoba accidentally uses Scrap incorrectly on Mizuki. He ends up spending the rest of the game in the hospital.
    • RE:connect shows that Mizuki was (miraculously) able to regain his sanity, much to this troper's relief.
  • Stepford Smiler: Type A. Whenever he talks to Aoba, Mizuki is usually fairly cheerful. He is actually hiding his worries about the growing popularity of Rhyme and the amount of people leaving Dry Juice and Rib.


The main antagonist. Calm, collected, and charismatic, Toue is the head of his own self-titled corporation and the owner of Platinum Jail.

Click here  to see Sei

  • Artificial Human
  • Bishōnen
  • Death Seeker: After having been experimented on for years by Toue, Sei reaches out to Aoba so that the latter can "release" him.
  • Designer Babies: He and Aoba were genetically engineered by Toue.
  • Determinator: Is this when it comes to his wish to be "destroyed" by Aoba - Sei is very persistent in trying to reach out to his brother and make him come to Oval Tower.
  • Fingerless Gloves
  • Friend to All Living Things: Implied in the ending image as the Allmates seem to love him.
  • Hypnotic Eyes: Being Aoba's twin, Sei seems to have pretty much the same mind-controlling abilities, but uses his eyes instead of voice.
  • Ill Boy: Because of Toue's experiments Sei is very weak, can hardly move and has a serious heart condition.
  • Long-Lost Relative: Sei is Aoba's twin brother, who was Separated at Birth and raised by Toue.
  • Meaningful Name: "Sei" is a homophone of the word that mean "life" which reflects his power. It's also homophone with the kanji of "blue" as in "Ao".
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Usui, who was created with a part of Sei's consciousness, has ten arms and is extremely powerful in Rhyme.
  • Nice Hat: He wears a black fedora with a Morphine pin on it.
  • Phlebotinum Rebel: Toue probably didn't expect Sei to destroy the entire damn tower with the help of his ability - which he holds because of being genetically engineered that way for Toue's own needs.
  • Transsexual: Possibly. Sei's mind in the form of Usui is female, and Toue dressed Sei in women's clothing.
  • Troubled Fetal Position: Is in this pose when Aoba first encounters him, although it was later revealed that it was not Sei in the flesh but one of his consciousnesses.
  • Virtual Ghost: In Ren's good ending, it seems that Sei or a part of his consciousness still exists in the network even a year after his death.
  • Walking Spoiler: He only shows up in the Secret Character Route. Just about every trope associated with him is a spoiler.

Nine and Haruka Seragaki

Aoba's parents. They adopted little Aoba after Nine saw him on the beach.
