!Haken Browning (Voiced by Creator/NobuyukiHiyama)
The protagonist of ''Endless Frontier'', 23-year old Haken Browning is captain of the dimension-traveling vehicle ''Zeit Krokodil'' (German for "Time Crocodile") and a BountyHunter through the "Endless Frontier", a set of small, multiple worlds inter-dimensionally connected via "Cross Gates". He is faithfully followed by his {{Sidekick}} Aschen Brodel. Haken fancies himself as a ladies' man, complimenting everyone of the fairer sex, with a very easy-going personality. Despite having a color scheme akin to [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlphaGaiden Sanger Zonvolt]] and the surname to [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Excellen Browning]], Haken is an {{Expy}} of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Kyosuke Nanbu]], taking on the role of the calm, cool leader with a [[TheGambler gambling habit]], even [[ThemeNaming naming most of his attacks after gambling stints]] ("Texas Hold'em", "High Low Draw", etc.).

Following the events of ''Endless Frontier EXCEED'', Haken has a run-in with Sanger, who winds up in the Endless Frontier from the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'' universe during the events of ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone''. Along with Kaguya Nanbu, they reunite with their old allies Reiji Arisu and Xiaomu since their adventures in the Endless Frontier, resolving to help the latter and their crisis.

Sometime after ''Project X Zone'', Haken and Aschen show Sanger the way home, using the same transporter he appeared from in the Endless Frontier, but a malfunction accidentally send him and Aschen into the Original Generation universe with Sanger, just as the world of the New A.D. finds itself in conflict with the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsJudgment Fury]], [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGC Gadisword]], and the remnants forces of [[Characters/CompatiHeroSeries Dark Brain]]. Without a functional Cross Gate around to return to the Endless Frontier, Haken relegates staying with the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationSteelDragonBattleGroup Steel Dragon Battle Group]]" temporarily. Fortunately, he is put to good use as [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationOthersAndWalkingSpoilers Doctor Marion Radom]] [[ContrivedCoincidence by chance]] had already completed a custom Gespenst using salvaged blueprints from the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Shadow-Mirror]]", giving it to Haken for use.

In his ''Endless Frontier'' and ''Project X Zone'' appearances, [[GunsAkimbo Haken carries two weapons with him at all times]]: the "Night Fowl" assault rifle and the "[[HandCannon Longtomb Special]]" revolver. In ''The Moon Dwellers'', he becomes the primary pilot of the "[[AceCustom Gespenst Haken]]", complete with weapons similar to the Night Fowl. He embodies these tropes:
* TheAtoner: Played with - while he doesn't act like the usual example, it's made clear Haken's primary motivation in ''Endless Frontier EXCEED'' is to find his lost friends and help avert the current attempt at world destruction, both of which he's indirectly responsible for.
* AscendedFanboy: Vice Chief Lee Ly of the ''Zeit Krokodil'' often mocks his [[BadassLongcoat cowboy]] [[TooManyBelts costume]].
* {{BFG}}: The Longtomb Special can disassemble itself into this; in ''EXCEED'', it doubles as a portable WaveMotionGun.
* BerserkButton: Messing with his friends and his [[spoiler:W-Numbers family]]; {{Irony}} ensues when the people who've really pushed the button are [[spoiler:Pete Pain and Gagun Laos, who are also W-Numbers]].
-->'''Haken''': "[[spoiler:W03, Pete Pain]]...The price for messing with my family is very high. I'll make sure you pay until the last dime."
* BodyguardCrush: For Kaguya Nanbu; [[spoiler:it takes the end of ''Endless Frontier'' to make it {{official|Couple}} between them]].
* CasanovaWannabe: Subverted at first, as he flirts with every girl and gets turned down, [[spoiler:but eventually wins Kaguya's heart]].
* ChivalrousPervert: Justified; it's hard to blame him considering how ''ridiculous'' the boobage in the games are. In ''The Moon Dwellers'', Haken points out that [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsMX Aqua Centrum]] wouldn't be out of place in the Endless Frontier upon [[{{Stripperific}} seeing what she wears]] when piloting, even nicknaming her "[[ShesGotLegs High Leg Celeb]]".
** GameplayAndStoryIntegration: Turns into a game-play mechanic in ''The Moon Dwellers'' - acquiring Haken's "Ace Bonus" and he deals 5% more damage per female member paired in a "Twin Unit" with him.
* CombinationAttack: "Phantom Hold 'Em" with the Gespenst Phantom and "Rampage Specter", although the latter plays with this since it's simply Haken summoning the Alt Eisen Nacht and Weiss Ritter Abend to do it.
* CriticalHit: His character specialty - Haken carries a "Spirit Command" that increases critical hit rate for the whole team and his personal weapon increases his critical hit chance, while in ''EXCEED'', pairing him with the Gespenst Phantom increases critical hit rate. In the first game, it's possible for Haken to achieve a [[GameBreaker 100% critical hit rate set up]].
* DeathDealer: Uses explosive cards in some of his attacks in ''Endless Frontier'' and ''Project X Zone''.
* DiscOneNuke: In ''EXCEED'', Haken acquires the Gespenst Phantom at the end of his introductory chapter, learns the "Co-Op" [[note]]Personal support can be activated twice and "Support Attack "is granted an additional use[[/note]] and "Morale" [[note]]Gain an additional 15% chance of achieving critical hits for the party[[/note]] Spirit Commands early and learns the attack "Seven Stud", an S+ ranked attack at a point in the game where an A+ ranked attack is still rare. Unlike most instances of this trope, Haken averts it by being much better statistically later in the game thanks to new attack "Quad Solitaire".
* {{Deuteragonist}}: Despite not being the protagonist of ''EXCEED'', much of the plot still revolves around Haken's atonement [[spoiler:and the W-Numbers]], thereby making this an (un)intended case of SpotlightStealingSquad.
* {{Expy}}:
** Haken [[ActorAllusion gives a lot of nods]] to his [[Creator/NobuyukiHiyama voice actor's]] [[Anime/TheBraveExpressMightGaine first hero]], including his [[TheCharmer charming personality]], [[Main/{{Cowboy}} love of cowboy themes]], [[TheGunslinger and using guns as their primary weapon]]. Bonus points for his ShoutOut line in ''Moon Dwellers'':
--> '''Haken:''' "So [[Anime/TheBraveExpressMightGaine this is the nice guy who brings out the whirlwind]], right?"
** Aside from TheGambler traits to Kyosuke, his background as [[spoiler:the first of the W-Numbers]] is radically similar to [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth]]. Coincidentally, Kyosuke and Sephiroth [[HeterosexualLifePartners share]] [[Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa the same voice actor]]. [[spoiler: Considering who created him, [[WildMassGuess this may be]] [[CastingGag intentional.]]]]
** A LovableSexManiac who grows stronger the more women are beside him, a robot assistant that the protagonist won't hit on, and has an unusual high skill in a mech; are we talking about Haken or [[Anime/SuperDimensionCenturyOrguss Kei Katsuragi]]?
* EyeObscuringHat: Oddly enough, this is how his hat is when his character portrait displays him as melancholic and sad.
** Notably, his hat has a notch cut out that, as shown in his SuperMovePortraitAttack, allow him to do this and still aim.
* GenerationXerox: Hilariously played with - [[spoiler:although Haken isn't John Moses's biological son, John mistakes Kaguya for a call-in escort the first time they meet]]. No wonder Haken's such a LovableSexManiac; a less notable one involves his nicknaming habit being derived from Aschen, who is his ParentalSubstitute.
* GratuitousEnglish: A lot, such as ''"OK!"'', ''"Jackpot"'' ''"Bingo!"'' and ''"Last showdown!"''. As of ''The Moon Dwellers'', he could give [[VideoGame/FatalFury Terry Bogard]] a run for his money.
** GratuitousSpanish: Sort of - he does say ''"Adios!"'' often.
* TheGunslinger: Combines Types C and D
* HeroicBSOD: Averted; Haken's upset when he learns he's [[spoiler:W-00]], but he knows screaming about it won't help.
* ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne: {{Lampshaded}}
-->'''Henne Valkyria''': "Looks like her report was right on. 'Dumbass poser wearing a black trenchcoat, black hat, red bandana, and fingerless gloves'."\\
'''Haken''': "What...!? What's wrong with my gloves!?"
* LateArrivalSpoiler: The fact he is [[spoiler:W-00]] is surprising for newcomers in ''EXCEED'', to which it's revealed extremely late in the {{Sequel}}; the same can't be said for players who have gone through the first game. In ''The Moon Dwellers'', Haken's true identity is never revealed, yet a few characters instantly connect the dots and determine his origins are linked to [[spoiler:the Shadow-Mirror]]. Those who have never played ''Endless Frontier'' are unlikely to catch the reference.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Haken's second introduction in ''EXCEED''
--> "My name's Haken Browning. They call me..."
--> "[[LeaningOnTheFourthWall ...just like that]]."
* {{Leitmotif}}: "All Right!"
* LikeBrotherAndSister: Him and Aschen, which is funny considering the latter is practically a mother to him. [[spoiler:At one point, he calls her "Sister 07" after he finds out he's W-00. Similarly, when he meets [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Lamia Loveless]] in ''The Moon Dwellers'', he address her as "Sister 17"]].
* {{Nerf}}: Of the returning cast in ''EXCEED'', Haken gets hit the most by lowering the effectiveness of the 100% critical setup and the attack "Jackpot". He also loses having the highest support count from the first game, his "Canfield" Special Skill [[note]]Gain the effects of "Alert" (all enemy attacks will miss for one turn) for the whole party[[/note]] uses up the "Frontier Gauge" instead of Spirit Points and Rampage Specter is decreased in power. Averted as a whole, considering his DiscOneNuke status, since he averts ''that'', too.
* TheNicknamer: ''Every'' single person he meets; he even nicknames plenty of the Vysaga's Japanese-named attacks into English for ''The Moon Dwellers'' (e.g: ''Fuujinsen'' -> "Wind Blade Slash"; ''Koujinsen'' -> "Light Blade Slash")
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: Haken lives for these
--> "Welcome to 'Lost Herencia'. Let me run the welcome wagon right over your ugly ass!"
* RedBaron: Inherited John's "Wandering Bounty Hunter" title. This become a small PlotPoint in ''EXCEED'' when Neige Hausen suspects him to be a fake.
* ShoutOut: Haken means "hook" in German [[spoiler:and he arrived in the Endless Frontier on a ship called the "Neverland" with a navigational computer called "Tinkerbell"]]. The ''Zeit Krokodil'' refers to a certain crocodile that ate, amongst other things, a clock and a ship captain's hand. [[Literature/PeterPan Do you get it]]?
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:Haken is "[[MyHeroZero W-00]]", the SuperPrototype of the ArtificialHuman "W-Numbers" created by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Lemon Browning]]. The majority of the W-Numbers are {{Android}}s and mostly-machine {{Cyborg}}s rather than the [[SuperSoldier extremely enhanced human]] like Haken is because the Shadow-Mirror decided it took too long to wait for him to grow up. Furthermore, it's implied because Lemon used her blood to create Haken, he's her OppositeSexClone]].
* SwissArmyGun: The Night Fowl's a custom assault rifle that fires normal, solid rounds with an underslung PileBunker below the rifle's barrel and [[BayonetYa a fold-out bayonet in the stock]].
* ThemeNaming: All of his attacks in ''Endless Frontier'' are related in some way to TabletopGame/{{Poker}} - Texas Hold 'Em, High Low Draw, "Best Flush", "Five Card Stud", Jackpot, "Last Showdown"
* TrappedInAnotherWorld: [[spoiler:Due to the climax of ''The Moon Dwellers'' regarding the destruction of the only Cross Gate available, Haken is effectively stranded in the Original Generation universe]].
* WaveMotionGun
** His Longtomb Special's most powerful mode is this, seen during Phantom Hold'em, Last Showdown and Quad Solitaire. Played straight in ''EXCEED'' when Haken can use it to hit multiple enemies as part of the "Phantom Hold'em Frontier MAX".
** In ''The Moon Dwellers'' the Gespenst Haken with its "[[ChestBlaster Neutron Cannon]]" functions as this.

!Kaguya Nanbu (Voiced by Creator/{{Yukana}})
The young princess of the Nanbu Clan in the world of Kagura Amahara, Kaguya's the {{heir|ToTheDojo}}ess of the sword-fighting style ''Jinraku Tengen''. In her first meeting with Haken, she unknowingly hires him and Aschen to escort her on her pilgrimage. Throughout her travels in the Endless Frontier, her relationship with Haken grows more forward. Although she carries Kyosuke's surname, Kaguya is more of a loose {{Expy}} of Excellen, since her personality is similar to her: [[TheDitz innocent]], [[TheTease playful]] and the one to provide the most {{Fanservice}} ([[InnocentFanserviceGirl not that she tries to invoke it]], unlike Excellen). She also has more Sanger references than Haken, starting from her sword ''[[{{BFS}} Goushiki Zankantou]]'' ("Type-5 Colossal Blade") to her styling herself as "[[RedBaron The Sword That Cleaves Evil]]", including Sanger's trademark '''[[{{Kiai}} CHEESTOOOOOO!!!]]'''.

Kaguya reappears in ''Project X Zone'' as Haken's partner for the game.

Some of the tropes that represent Kaguya are:
* CombatMedic: In the first game, Kaguya's attack stat is the lowest in the party and her attacks are weak, in general, but she carries the Special Skill ''Nanbu Reijutsu Tukimi Zake'', a party-wide heal, and she has the "Love" Spirit Command[[note]]Restore the party's HP to full[[/note]]. However, another Special Skill ''Nanbu Ittoryuu Teppou'' hits all enemies and with the right equipment, can shred them to pieces. Of note is her "Miracle" Spirit Command [[note]]Gain the effects of "Accelerate" (increase speed stat by 15% for 3 turns), "Strike" (for one turn, all attacks will hit without triggering guard or miss), "Alert" (all enemy attacks will miss for one turn), "Soul" (deal twice the amount of damage for one turn; critical hits do not activate) and "Luck" (earn 50% more credits after battle)[[/note]].
* DanceBattler: Her attacks look like a dance and it resembles Princess Suzuka's movements, which make sense since Suzuka is teaching her how to dance.
* DiscOneNuke: In ''EXCEED'', Kaguya's the strongest character in the early parts of the game thanks to her attack ''Hinezumi no Koromo''. By late-game, her damage output tapers off, unless players use her "Miracle" Spirit Command[[note]]In ''EXCEED'', casting "Miracle" grants "Abandon" (gain the effects of "Strike" and "Alert"), "Soul", "Luck", "Effort" (earn 20% more experience after battle), "Accelerate", "Drive" (recover 50% of COM) and "Guts" (recover HP to full)[[/note]].
* InSeriesNickname: A boatload of them; take "Dairy Cow Princess", for example - dresses in black and white, has large [[GagBoobs "milk-producing" body parts]].
* GenkiGirl: Her signature smiling pose makes it obvious.
* GratuitousJapanese: Creator/{{Atlus}} decided to keep her entire movelist in Japanese for the localization.
* ImpossiblyCoolWeapon: A {{BFS}} that doubles as a WhipSword with [[RingsOfDeath detachable chakram rings on the back of the blade she can fling around]] like {{Precision Guided Boomerang}}s.
* InnocentInnuendo: From the first game after hiring Haken.
--> '''Kaguya''': "Yeah, take me now!"
--> '''Haken''': "Err...I'll ''escort'' you."
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: That skimpy, tight, semi-transparent mini-dress with a ZettaiRyouiki to boot? It's ''formal wear''; to Kaguya, it's no more than wearing her Sunday best. Every so often she has a fit of modesty and turns away from the screen to cover her bosom with her arms, all while screeching in an outraged manner and glaring at the player over her shoulder. However, this gives players [[SexyBack a great view of her very well-drawn backside]].
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Flawless Full Moon"
* MsFanservice
** Ooh, boy: not only is her outfit ''too'' revealing, but her cleavage is definitely bigger than Aschen's, who is the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Lamia Loveless]] {{Expy}}, to which Lamia has the largest ones in the main installments. Kaguya probably beats her in that department, too.
** {{Lampshaded}} in ''Project X Zone'': when [[VideoGame/DeadRising Frank West]] snaps a photograph of her, the resulting score is a "Perfect: Erotica". To truly emphasize this, any time Frank meets a {{Fanservice}}-inducing character, he takes a photo of them; when Kaguya appears? He takes ''multiple shots of her in various gravure-like poses''.
** {{Gainaxing}}: Often when a SuperMovePortraitAttack is seen.
* MulticoloredHair: Black and red
* NiceGirl: One of the friendliest characters in the team.
* RunningGag: Almost every character, even villains, after their introduction mistake her as a "cow" or "werecow". Judging by [[{{Stripperiffic}} how she dresses up]] and her huge "[[IncrediblyLamePun tracts of land]]", this is justified. There's also the thing where Saya's cow henchman [[Characters/NamcoXCapcom Dokugozu]] proposes marriage to her everytime they meet, ''even in the middle of being {{Brainwashed}}''. The kicker? Kaguya's ''flattered'' by the proposal.
* RapunzelHair: A ponytail as long as she is tall.
* ShoutOut: Lots of them, especially to Sanger. Her name, however, is a direct call to the same-named Princess Kaguya of the Japanese folklore tale "The Tale Of the Bamboo Cutter", which is referenced InUniverse.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Her clothes are just ''way too tight'' and it reveals her ample bosom and shoulders.
* WhipSword: ''Goushiki Zankantou'' can extend like one

!Aschen Brodel (Voiced by Creator/KaoriShimizu)
Haken's loyal and devoted RobotGirl {{Sidekick}}, Aschen Brodel's [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair a green-haired]] combat {{Cyborg}} capable of emitting human-like emotions. At first, one would think she's a blatant {{Expy}} of Lamia Loveless, but it's {{justified|Trope}}: Aschen's, in fact, her predecessor (to a lesser extent, "older sister") codenamed "W-07". She and Lemon's other W-Numbers 01 through 10 were the first to be sent to the Original Generation universe during an attack by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Beowulf]], but they were put in the first batch of the teleportation device the Shadow-Mirror had built, namely the unstable ones. Aschen stumbled into the Endless Frontier and have been there for the past twenty-three years.

Unlike Lamia who's mostly TheStoic by default, [[DeadpanSnarker Aschen has a sharp tongue and at times flings insults]], especially regarding Haken's womanizing attitude, and [[TheNicknamer invents other derisive]] {{In Series Nickname}}s like "Dairy Cow Princess" or "Princess Flat" (for Suzuka). Aschen's also installed with "Code: DTD" (Dust-to-Dust), but instead of it being a ChekhovsGun with regards to Lamia, she uses it for full advantage as a SuperMode, but with a side-effect of turning her personality into a total GenkiGirl.

Being a combat {{Cyborg}}, she doesn't need a weapon: she fights with bare hands and feet (although the rest of her body carries an assortment of weapons like disk cutters, missiles and shotguns mounted to her heels). Aschen doesn't appear anywhere else except her home series; however, she and Haken are pulled into Sanger's dimension following a transporter malfunction. Although she doesn't get her own HumongousMecha like Haken does, Aschen provides combat support as the designated co-pilot of the Gespenst Haken.

Tropes associated with Aschen are:
* ArmedLegs: Shotgun boots and [[MurderousThighs rocket batteries in her thighs]].
* [[BashBrothers Bash Sisters]], SiblingTeam: Invoked for ''The Moon Dwellers'' - it's possible to have Lamia as the primary pilot of the Gespenst Haken; in fact, doing so and a trophy is unlocked for it.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:In ''EXCEED'' by Pete Pain, then averted thanks to some quick thinking via his recovering memory from [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Axel Almer]]]].
* BrutalHonesty: By default, Aschen is blunt, never hesitates to say whatever comes to her mind and sarcastic.
* CallingYourAttacks: "[[RocketPunch ASCHEN PUNCH]]!"
* DeadpanSnarker: "I will write something insulting on that billboard you call a chest."
* {{Foil}}: To Lamia - Aschen is made for direct melee-combat with an in-your-face, rambunctious style, whereas Lamia is tailored for piloting HumongousMecha through [[LadyOfWar careful calculations and graceful movements who prefers ranged-combat]].
* TheFourGods: Her moveset incorporates attacks called "Tigress Bite", "Genbu Spike" and "[[MacrossMissileMassacre Dragon Scale]]", while her "[[LimitBreak Overdrive]]" is aptly named "Phantasm Phoenix".
* GenkiGirl: During Code: DTD
* GratuitousEnglish: Similar to Haken, there's a lot, like "Fire!", "Striking!" and ''"Yes, I do!"''
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Ash to Ash (ver. EF)"
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Aschen is responsible for sending herself and Haken into the Original Generation universe because she entered Code: DTD to kick-start the inter-dimensional transporter to bring Sanger home, overloading it and sending all them into his world.
* TheNicknamer: In ''The Moon Dwellers'', she has a nickname for everyone who pilots the Gespenst Haken - many of them [[BrutalHonesty insulting]], many of them InUniverse {{reference|Overdosed}}s.
* {{Oneesama}}: How Lamia addresses her in ''The Moon Dwellers''
* ParentalSubstitute: Aschen is the one who acts as the maternal figure to Haken.
* PerpetualFrowner: Her normal appearance; turns into [[GenkiGirl the exact opposite]] via Code: DTD.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: In ''The Moon Dwellers'', she'll leap out of the Gespenst Haken during its strongest attack to [[RapidFireFisticuffs beat down]] enemy targets ''five times her size'' straight into the sky. Justified since she's a {{Cyborg}}.
* RocketPunch: She uses a wired variant for RapidFireFisticuffs in many of her attacks.
* ServileSnarker: Aschen counts towards Haken - it helps she's been with him for the past 23 years; even one of her character portraits in-game has her bowing servilely.
* ShoutOut
** Aside from Lamia, try translating her name into German: as per the usual fairy tale ThemeNaming of ''Endless Frontier'', "Aschen" translates into "Literature/{{Cinderella}}"; likewise, if she attacks with her feet, she sometimes yells out "Glass Heel!", a signature item from the story.
** Phantasm Phoenix is an obvious reference to the "Phantom Phoenix" attack for the mecha "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Angelg]]"; in ''EXCEED'', her multi-target Overdrive "Gravity Howling" is a reference to "Bloody Howling", the ultimate attack of the "[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars64 Simurgh Splendid]]", an {{Expy}} of the Angelg.
** One of Aschen's Special Skills in ''EXCEED'' is called "Code: Amphisbaena" based on a Greek mythological monster like the lamia. One of the meanings for "amphisbaena" is "both ways" and its appearance is that of a serpentine monster with a head at each end. The attack involves grabbing one enemy and a random object off-screen with her {{Rocket Punch}}es and slamming them together.
** The first part of the animation for her Phantasm Phoenix is likely a reference to the [[VideoGame/FatalFury Kim]] [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Kaphwan]] "Desperation Move" ''Hou'ou Kyaku'': both attacks are named after ThePhoenix, they start by sliding at the enemy knee-first while trailing with shadows, followed up with an extended kick combo, and finally ending in a somersault kick. Aschen, however, continues her attackwith a series of RapidFireFisticuffs and finishes off with an upward heel shotgun blast.
* SplitPersonality: Whenever she activates Code: DTD or if she overheats.
* {{Stripperific}}: Her Overdrive "sheds" the green parts of her body, revealing an ample bosom like Kaguya's and thighs.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: She's the tomboy to Lamia's girly-girl, given Aschen prefers close-combat and, due to Code: DTD, will act foul-mouthed and hyperactive.
* TrappedInAnotherWorld: [[spoiler:Like Haken, at the end of ''The Moon Dwellers'', Aschen is stuck in the Original Generation universe until they can find a way back to the Endless Frontier]].
* UnknownRival
** Seems to think of KOS-MOS as her rival, even challenging her to a fight during their first meeting, but KOS-MOS ignores this completely.
** In ''EXCEED'', during her introduction, Aschen claims to be more beautiful, smarter, and funnier than KOS-MOS.

!Princess Suzuka (Voiced by Creator/MamikoNoto)
A "Shiki-Oni" princess from Kagura Amahara, Princess Suzuka is Kaguya's ChildhoodFriend and is betrothed to another Oni named Shuten, bumping into Haken and his party and joining them in their endeavors throughout the Endless Frontier. Suzuka uses an unusual style of [[DanceBattler dance for combat]] that lets her command a mecha (just about as tall as the other mecha found in the game) called the "Jyaki-GUN-Oh" (Devil Gun King). As far as beauty goes, Haken calls her a "[[BareYourMidriff Midriff Beauty]]", but Aschen dubs her "Princess Flat" (with good reason). Some of the tropes Suzuka adheres to include:
* ACupAngst: Subverted; while she ''does'' get teased by Aschen constantly, Suzuka doesn't seem to mind. The subversion comes when [[BuxomIsBetter Kaguya]] reveals she drinks lots of milk, and Suzuka decides to buy some, suggesting she ''does'' want larger breasts.
* BetaCouple: [[HugeGuyTinyGirl With Shuten]] in the first game, then joined by Haken/Kaguya in ''EXCEED''.
* BoringButPractical: In the first game, by repeatedly {{cancel}}ling one of her attacks, players can exchange her turn doing damage for an 80% increase to the Frontier Gauge, which more than makes up for it. By timing it right, it's possible to deal enough damage and charge the gauge to activate Suzuka's Overdrive immediately.
* DeadpanSnarker: More often than not, Suzuka has SnarkToSnarkCombat with Aschen.
* FragileSpeedster: The fastest party member, allowing her to take her turn first, and has a high hit count alongside her attack list being able to fill the Frontier Gauge more easily, yet has the weakest defensive stat of the party.
* GratuitousDiscoSequence: Her Overdrive and Special Skills, complete with disco ball.
* HandPuppet: According to the localized website for ''Endless Frontier'', the Jyaki-GUN-Oh's actually a puppet on strings, made to resemble a mecha.
* HealingShiv: In ''EXCEED'', one of Suzuka's Special Skills is healing the entire party [[MoreDakka with bullets]], but subverted when closer inspection reveals they're really confetti and party poppers
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Dance It Out!" and "Dance It Out! (Hyper Remix)"
* MagikarpPower: Low damage output and relatively fragile, but she can fill the Frontier Gauge to maximum by herself through move-canceling in the first game. In ''EXCEED'', once she learns "Ghost Dance", she becomes a juggernaut.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: She can make the Jyaki-GUN-Oh wail on an enemy with '''DISCO''' complete with disco ball and multicolored lights.
* OnlySaneMan: Compared to the the rest of the party, Suzuka fits this trope nicely.
* PaperFanOfDoom: {{Dual Wield|ing}}s both, to which she can control the Jyaki-GUN-Oh via strings from the fans.
* TheOjou: Portrays this slightly better than Kaguya; exemplified by having a NoblewomansLaugh, instead.
* TheTease: While she doesn't actively do this, she does act like this toward Shuten in the ending.
%%* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue oni (both literally and metaphorically) to Kaguya's red
%%* RunawayFiance
* ShoutOut: When using the Jyaki-GUN-Oh, there's a chance she might yell out "[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Jyaki-GUN Finger]]!"
* {{Youkai}}: Obviously themed after the traditional, blue, one-horned oni, but she's a subversion of the typical oni character tropes - rather than a brute physical fighter, she's a dance puppeteer.

!Aledy Naash (voiced by Creator/TomokazuSeki)
Protagonist for the sequel ''Endless Frontier EXCEED'', Aledy Naash's a warrior of the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Shura]]" sent by his mentor Cindy Bird to investigate the new emergence of "Mild Kiel" crystals in the newly reformed Endless Frontier, as well as the missing machine "Ark-On". He's assisted by the lost princess of Elfetale Neige Hausen.

Despite being a Shura and a practioner of ''Kishin Ken'', there is no establishing link between Aledy and the Shura who appear in ''Original Generation Gaiden''. Coupled with the surname "Naash", neither is there any indication he's related to [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Alkaid Nassh]]. Tropes associated with Aledy are:
* AwesomeButImpractical: One of Aledy's Special Skills is a ''Haki'' sealing technique that is a OneHitKO if successfully cast, except it has little to no chance of working against humanoid enemies.
** CripplingOverspecialization: However, InUniverse, the technique is developed as a means to defeat ''Rasetsu-Ki'' like the Ark-On. On the other hand, [[spoiler:the technique is useful against the [[GrandTheftMe body-stealing]] BigBad]].
* ButtMonkey: His tendency to miss the point in a lot of situations makes him a perfect target of ridicule.
* CombinationAttack: ''Haou Maretsu Ken'' with the Ark-On
* DiscOneNuke: Most of Aledy's attacks early in the game can cause guard break and potentially stun enemies, rendering them immobile for one turn. He also learns the "Training" Spirit Command[[note]]Gain the effects of "Luck" and "Effort"[[/note]], allowing him to level early in ''EXCEED''.
* {{Expy}}: A rare fourth-generation expy of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Folka Albark]], the {{Expy}} of [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Kenshiro]], the {{Expy}} of Creator/BruceLee. Noted InUniverse by [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationSteelDragonBattleGroup Kouta Azuma]]]].
* FishOutOfWater: A bit worse than Folka from ''Original Generation Gaiden'' since Aledy's more [[ChasteHero clueless about the opposite sex]]. In fact, he doesn't even know what "handsome" means. PlayedForLaughs with [[CampGay Katze Kotolnos]].
* GuysSmashGirlsShoot: His fighting style relies on his [[RapidFireFisticuffs fists]] and martial arts while Neige carries a {{BFG}}.
%%* HotBlooded: [[PigeonholedVoiceActor Just look at his voice actor]].
* KiAttacks: Shoots dragon-shaped ki projectiles at the enemy in his regular moves and LimitBreak.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Crimson Ashura" and "Roar, O One Who Breaks Supremacy"
* LightningBruiser: Fast, hits hard and pretty sturdy, Aledy later comes packing with the "Soul" Spirit Command.
* MaleGaze: Neige notices where Aledy's looking at upon meeting Kaguya and proceeds to berate him.
* RapidFireFisticuffs: A staple of Kishin-Ken practitioners. Also includes rapid-fire kicks.
* TheRival: Hamelin and Aledy consider one another this.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is it "Aledy" or "Alady"?
* ShoutOut: Of all things, his name is reference to "Literature/{{Aladdin}}".
* TheStoic: Unless he's yelling his {{Kiai}}, Aledy's a pretty reserved guy.
* TakeAThirdOption: Shura ideaology states there are only two paths in life - win and crush the enemy or lose and die; [[spoiler:Aledy chooses neither]].
** SpannerInTheWorks: The BigBad would've succeeded had Aledy followed the rule to a T, had Aledy not [[spoiler:have the ability to seal ''Haki'' access from a ''Rasetsu-Ki'']].
* TeenGenius: One of the most skilled Shura with an outrageous amount of ''Haki'' (according to Hamelin Silbato) at the age of 14. By the time ''EXCEED'' occurs, Aledy's more skilled, making Hamelin wonder whether Cindy is that good of a mentor or if Aledy's just that good himself.
* WorthyOpponent: For a lot of his opponents.

!Neige Hausen (voiced by Creator/NanaMizuki)
Female protagonist of ''EXCEED'', Neige Hausen's a [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld 117-year old]] princess of the fairies in the Elfetale Kingdom, which was destroyed sometime before the first ''Endless Frontier'', now accompanying Aledy in his quest. Tropes associated with Neige are:
* AttackReflector: Parts of Neige's techniques involve conjuring mirrors which deflects the solid rounds fired from her weapon with exceptional accuracy. May double as ImprobableAimingSkills as none of the rounds manages to hit her.
* {{BFG}}: Her primary weapon.
* TheBigDamnKiss: [[spoiler: Gives one to Aledy in the ending.]]
* CombinationAttack: "Royal Heart Blaster" with the "Fee-Kleid"
* DoItYourselfThemeTune: Her seiyuu performs the opening theme.
* EasilyForgiven: Neige is quick to forgive Agrado Heim's shortcomings, although the latter explains the situation first. To be fair, she is quite sceptic to the situations.
* GuysSmashGirlsShoot: Carries a {{BFG}} while Aledy's fighting style relies on [[RapidFireFisticuffs fists]] and martial arts.
* {{Hammerspace}}: Aside from the mirrors, she pulls apple grenades via VictoriasSecretCompartment.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Fairy ROM-Antic" and "Fairy ROM-Antic Go!"
* NoblewomansLaugh: Complete with hand-next-to-mouth pose.
* SexyBacklessOutfit: Her {{Meido}} outfit gets a backless variant
* ShoutOut
** Her surname is an obvious reference to [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationSteelDragonBattleGroup another princess named Hausen]] from the main {{Continuity}}.
** Neige means "snow" in French, and she's a princess who throws around exploding apples and encases enemies in glass coffins she blasts through and reflects lasers off mirrors in battle. [[Literature/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Get the reference yet]]? To make it even more blatant, every single one of her moves except her Overdrive is named after elements of the original story, and her [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld age]] can be taken as Snow White's age when she reawakens.
* SwissArmyGun: Like Haken's Night Fowl, her BladeOnAStick doubles as a {{BFG}} that fires solid-based ammo and FrickinLaserBeams ''[[MundaneMadeAwesome and also functions as a guitar]]''.
* {{Tsundere}}: Neige ''instantly'' gets pegged as one during her introduction to one of the other characters. It turns out to be spot on.
* WellExcuseMePrincess: As part of her {{Tsundere}} tendencies, she'll often criticize Aledy's shortcomings, even if it's like him lamenting that he lacks training, to which she responds that she'll be the first to [[NoblewomansLaugh laugh at him]].
* VerbalTic: Has a tendency to add "do-" before words (making it "do-(noun/verb)"); it approximately means "super" (noun/verb).

[[caption-width-right:275:From left to right: Katze, Ezel, Kyon and Henne]]
The elite unit of "Formido Heim", the world that invaded Elfetale and caused the "Ten Year War" which ended once they offered a ceasefire, members of the Orchestral Army include TokenMiniMoe[=/=]TagalongKid BlackMagicianGirl [[CuteWitch Kyon Feulion]], black-winged {{valk|yrie}} [[LadyofWar yrie]] Henne Valkyria and skull-headed leader Ezel Granada . Utilizing various hi-tech equipment like {{Light Saber}}s and combat robots, they roam around Elfetale and cause the Cross Gates that connects between worlds to be unstable.

In ''EXCEED'', they aid the main party as support members. Aschen, having been given an offer to join by Henne at the end of the first game, is one of its members.
* AFatherToHisMen: Ezel; [[spoiler:in ''EXCEED'', when Girda Miroir's magic mirror creates a reflection of the most important person in his heart, it produces the remaining members of the Orchestral Army]].
* AttackDrone: Kyon's Overdrive, complete with ShootEmUp style.
* CampGay
** [[spoiler:Katze Kotolnos]]; to hammer the point home, he uses the [[UsefulNotes/JapanesePronouns feminine-only "atashi"]].
** He still keeps making passes at the guys in ''EXCEED'', prompting Haken to tell him to "not fall for him" when he praises him excessively. Made funnier by the fact Haken uses the same phrase a lot during combat when he's busy beating down {{Mooks}}, although with a more mocking intent.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: As camp as [[spoiler: Katze]] is, he holds off the entire party by himself at one point in ''Endless Frontier''.
* CuteClumsyGirl: The first two encounters with Kyon in the first game has her trapped and "helped" by the party. Bonus points for the fact that she, as Henne points out, carries a teleporter.
* {{Emoticon}}: Kyon frequently uses this.
--> '''Henne''' (reading from a report): "Bad-tempered robot (I hate this one the most >XD)."
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Henne and [[spoiler: Katze]]
* ExtremityExtremist: All of [[spoiler:Katze's]] techniques are used only by his legs, including his Overdrive.
* HeroicBSOD: Ezel's been emotionally down since the end of the Ten Year War; it isn't until the end of the first game he finally lets go of his past.
* IllNeverTellYouWhatImTellingYou: Kyon's prone to doing this
* LateArrivalSpoiler: The fact they are supporting characters in ''EXCEED'' spoils the fact [[spoiler:they are not the main antagonists of the first game]]. Furthermore, ''EXCEED'' also spoils [[spoiler:that Formido Heim was manipulated by the Einst who possessed their king, which triggered the Ten Year War, and the cause of the ceasefire]].
* {{Leitmotif}}: "[[ShapedLikeItself Orchestral Army]]"
* LetsGetDangerous: When the party fights [[spoiler:Katze]]
* MaskPower: Ezel always wears a horned skull helmet
* NiceGuy: In spite of his BigGuy credentials, Ezel is [[GentleGiant the nicest character]] in the first game.
* NobleDemon: Ezel, figuratively and literally; [[spoiler:subverted because he might be the most outright ''heroic'' character in the series who personally put an end to the Ten Year War. [[HeroicSelfDeprecation He still thinks he deserves to be called a villain, though]]]].
* OddNameOut: While all of its members [[ThemeNaming reference animals from]] ''Literature/TheBremenTownMusicians'', Kyon's name is Greek while the others are German.
* OnlySaneMan: Ezel (and to an extent, [[spoiler:Katze]]) is the most normal character on the team.
* RapunzelHair: Kyon has ankle length
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Whenever Ezel uses his Overdrive
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:[[DarkIsNotEvil Formido Heim's been trying to prevent a full-blown Einst invasion]], who created an imposter of their deceased king, which pushed Formido Heim into the Ten Year War. Katze, who held the rank of Vice-Captain, leaves the group to become TheAtoner]].
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: [[spoiler:Crowned the king of Formido Heim at the end of the first game, Ezel is the only character of royalty (sans the princesses) who supports the party. Bonus points for being the BigGood of ''EXCEED'']]. PlayedForLaughs when he's criticized by John Moses and Rubor Cucullus [[HypocriticalHumor who envy the fact he can enjoy the fight]].
* RunningGag: Henne and Kyon's report details the party's appearance. Both of them are finished with the description of Aschen, complete with "I hate this one the most >XD".
* SecretKeeper: When you fight Ezel for the last time in Endless Frontier, [[spoiler: his battles quotes implies he knows already who Haken is, as well as Aschen.]]
* ShoutOut
** Their former frontline fortress "Poker Castle" is under the command of "[[Literature/AliceInWonderland Hum Dum]]", and the location carries random {{Mook}} encounters of [[Literature/AliceInWonderland card soldiers, a chest in the castle holds the "Cheshire" armor]] and Reiji [[AliceAllusion Arisu]] joins the party here.
** In another call to "Literature/TheBremenTownMusicians", Henne, Ezel and [[spoiler:Katze]] are "hen", "donkey" and "cat" in German, respectively, while Kyon, or "[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Kuon]]", is "dog" in Greek.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is it "Orchestral" or "Orchestre"?
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: Being a [[spoiler:former member of the Army, Katze]] and Ezel are radically different from the rest of the team, the latter plays up more of TheStoic.
* UnknownRival: A minor version where Kyon feels her TokenMiniMoe status is threatened when M.O.M.O appears in ''EXCEED''; M.O.M.O isn't aware of this.


The denizens of the world of "Elfetale" are largely comprised of talking animals, elves and fairies. They were the primary targets during the Ten Year War with Formido Heim and thus, were hit the hardest. A majority of the elves fled the onslaught, taking refuge with the Shura.
!Dorothy Mistral (Voiced by Creator/NatsukoKuwatani)

* BlowYouAway: Although her main repetoire is explosives, one technique is randomly summoning a small tornado out from nowhere.
* HyperspaceArsenal: How does she ''fit'' all those bombs under that dress of hers? May double as VictoriasSecretCompartment
* MeaningfulName: "Mistral" refers to a strong, cold and usually dry regional wind in France.
%%* OfCorsetsSexy
* OnlySmartPeopleMayPass: In Dorothy's fortress; justified since she's an InsufferableGenius.
* OurElvesAreBetter: Following a certain point in the first game, Dorothy sells some of the best accessories available for purchase.
* ShoutOut: When fighting her for the first time, [[FlunkyBoss she comes along with minions]] named [[Film/TheWizardOfOz "Cerebrumless", "Heartless", and "Valorless". The road to her "Esmeralda Castle" is paved with yellow bricks, and in the sequel, she'll occasionally call out her attack as "Return To Home!"]] Another one of her attacks is called "[[Film/MaryPoppins Poppin Typhoon]]!"

!Rubor Cucullus (Voiced by Creator/RyotaroOkiayu)

* BashBrothers: Used to be quite the team with Lee Ly before the Ten Year War.
* {{BFS}}: Doubles as a SwissArmyWeapon - the tip of his sword hides a gun barrel that fires solid rounds.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: He takes a ''very'' hands-on approach to solve what he sees as problems.
* ShoutOut: His castle is named "Abuelita", the Spanish word for "[[Literature/LittleRedRidingHood grandmother]]".
* UnknownRival: To Ezel in the first game, [[spoiler:but Ezel doesn't care because of his HeroicBSOD]].

!Cleo Gretel

An Egyptian-themed lamia, Cleo operates a bakery called "Fatty Hansel" with a noticeable sweet tooth who bakes delicious sweets. Although she makes her debut in ''EXCEED'', she was in the background of the first game: apparently, Cleo resides ''under'' the Cross Gate lying deep within the "Dulces Tomb".
* BandageBabe: Wears bandage wrappings around her chest and arms as a fashion choice and to go with her Egyptian motif.
* BellyDancer: Does a bellydance before using her Overdrive.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy
* BrilliantButLazy: She's really strong and makes wonderful items, but despite being the "guardian" of the Dulces Tomb, Cleo prefers not doing her job at all and lounges in a dungeon under the Cross Gate instead.
* CuteMonsterGirl: She's a lamia -- no, not ''that'' [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Lamia]] -- with a well-pronounced Egyptian motif, BareYourMidriff, CuteLittleFangs and {{Underboobs}}.
* NiceHat
* SweetTooth: Consistently seen chewing on a lollipop and her [[LimitBreak Overdrive]] involves [[EdibleAmmunition bombarding the party with loads of sweets]].
* ShoutOut: "Cleo" for "[[UsefulNotes/CleopatraVII Cleopatra]]", while her surname, her obsession with sweets and her store named "Fatty Hansel" is from another familiar [[Literature/HanselAndGretel fairytale]] by "Creator/TheBrothersGrimm".

!Katze Kotolnos (Voiced by Creator/RyotaroOkiayu)
--> See: [[spoiler:Orchestral Army]]


[[folder:Varna Kanai]]
!The Sirena Pirates

* BloodKnight: {{Pirate|Girl}} captain Anne Sirena's solution to a confusing situation? A fight or blow everything away.
* CoolBigSis: Anne to the rest of the girls in the party in ''EXCEED''; may double as the TeamMom.
* DualWielding: Anne uses a pair of cannons in combat and holds them like DualTonfas.
* NonMammalMammaries: Dodged in the case of Anne who is part-Orca.
* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: Anne's a half-Orca mermaid, while her {{Sidekick}} Bonny Maxmad is at best a fish-type [[PettingZooPeople kemono]].
* ShoutOut: Their names are derived from "UsefulNotes/AnneBonny", a RealLife 18th Century Irish PirateGirl.
* TeamMom: Anne in ''EXCEED'' acts like this on occasion around the younger girls in the party such as M.O.M.O. and [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Einst Alfimi]]]].


[[folder:Kagura Amahara]]

The people of the world of "Kagura Amahara" live primarily in three places: under the WorldTree "Fujisakura", in the frontier town of "Ryugu Island" and in the {{Oni}}-occupied "Megi Castle". During the Ten Year War, they secluded themselves from Elfetale by closing the Cross Gates that allow access to their world.

!Sanuki Nanbu
* BigGood: In the first game; he is the king of Kagura Amahara, after all.
* GoodHairEvilHair: Has an exceptionally neat, full beard
* MulticoloredHair: Black and red
* PervertDad: Implied after an incident regarding a [[spoiler:fake Kaguya running around and {{Brainwashing}} people]].
--> '''Sanuki''' : "Ah, but those curves...There's no mistaking them! You're my daughter!"\\
'''Kaguya''': "Father, can't you think of a better way to recognize me?"


%%* FlashStep
* {{Ninja}}: Of the RazorFloss and flame explosion-type
%%* PeekABangs

!Koma (Voiced by Creator/NatsukoKuwatani)

* CatGirl: Variation; since her tail splits in two, she's more akin to a "[[{{Youkai}} nekomata]]".
* CatsAreMean: Koma will fight against the party if the price is right only to [[HeelFaceTurn turn face post-battle]] and sell the party items the next time they meet.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Starts off fighting the party to stop them from continuing into the dungeon, as she is being paid to do so ([[BrokenBridge players cannot truly continue due to Mild Kiel crystals]], something that is {{Lampshaded}}). After that, she sells items and apologizes, then turns around and [[HereWeGoAgain fights the party again at another dungeon, having a new employer who is paying her a ridiculous amount of money]]. Following her second defeat, she gets [[TooKinkyToTorture spanked off-screen]] and goes back to selling items again.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Everybody Do The Koma!"
* [[ProudMerchantRace Proud Merchant Family]]: Played with - her "father" Shirou sees her as a disgrace to their line of work.
* MeaningfulName: Koma comes from ne''koma''ta, the Japanese twin-tailed cat demon.
* MoneyToThrowAway: Uses money as part of her Overdrive.
* NotSoDifferent: In ''EXCEED'', Mark Hunter plays the same role as Koma in the first game - hired by a third-party to stop the protagonists from proceeding with their objectives.
* VerbalTic: "Nya!"


* BerserkButton: Any mention that Koma is his "daughter" and outright insulting his shop.
%%* {{Kemonomimi}}
* [[ProudMerchantRace Proud Merchant Family]]: He represents the "honorable" side.
* VerbalTic: Tends to end his sentences with "Wan!" or "Woof!"

!Shuten, King of the Shiki-Oni (Voiced by Creator/TetsuInada)

%%* BladeOnAStick
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: In the first game, which is easy thanks to his {{Pride}} as an Oni.
* HeelRealization: Defeating for a second time in the first game and Shuten realizes he can't overcome [[spoiler:the Einst's]] MindControl like he believes since he's already being played by them, thus there was never a need for them to control him.
%%* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Him and Suzuka
%%* ShockAndAwe
* MeaningfulName: His name's derived from "Shutendouji", the giant ruler of Oni in Japanese folklore.


[[folder: Shura]]

The Shura are a [[BloodKnight fight happy]] ProudWarriorRace who originated from a world they called "Hakoku", nicknamed "The Land of Waves". They were in the middle of a war with another race until their sudden transfer to the Endless Frontier. Shura politics are one of the three guiding forces moving the story in ''Endless Frontier EXCEED''.

!Cindy Bird

%%* AsskickingEqualsAuthority
* OldMaster: Fulfills this trope, yet subverted for not being old at all.
* ShoutOut: If Aledy's name is farfetched already, Cindy is, likewise, a pun on "[[Series/TheAdventuresOfSinbad Sinbad]]".

!Hamelin Sibalto (Voiced by Creator/TomokazuSugita)

* ExtremityExtremist: Aside from a musical pipe, Hamelin will perform a few kick-based techniques.
%%* FacialMarkings
* MeaningfulName: "Silbato" is Spanish for "whistle"; [[MusicalAssassin most of Hamelin's attacks are done through a musical pipe]].
* PeoplePuppets: Is the main source of the {{Brainwashing}} in ''EXCEED''.
* ShoutOut: To "Literature/ThePiedPiperOfHamelin"; in fact, one of his attacks is [[ZergRush summoning a stampede of mice people]].

!Gerda Miroir

* TheAlcatraz: Her base of operations
%%* AsskickingEqualsAuthority
* BlingOfWar: Just look at her dress!
* MeaningfulName: "Miroir" is French for "mirror"; some of Gerda's attacks involve conjuring a duplicate image of herself.
* NiceHat: Wears a unique Russian Ushanka
%%* TheRival: To Cindy - both women are among the highest ranking warriors among the Shura.
* ShoutOut: To "Literature/TheSnowQueen" - she's named after the female protagonist of the story, [[AnIcePerson her attacks are ice-themed]] and her duplicating attacks and surname invoke the magic mirror from the fairy tale.


[[folder: Agrado Heim]]
One of the driving forces behind the events of ''EXCEED'' and the main antagonists of the game, the world of "Agrado Heim" were at war with the Shura of Hakoku, with several of their members being familiar with Aledy or one of the other Shura generals. Though they share similarities with the denizens of Formido Heim, Agrado Heim itself looks like a giant SpaceStation.

!Gagun Laos/[[spoiler:Gymnos Basileus]] (Voiced by Creator/KenichiOno)
%%* BigBad
* {{Expy}}: Of [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists W-15 Wodan Ymir]], but only in appearance. He is nothing like Wodan as W-05 has no emotions and Gymnos simply [[GrandTheftMe stole the android's body for its use]]]].
** CloningBlues: [[spoiler:W-05 is, accordingly, a spare body for Wodan]].
* ForTheEvulz: [[spoiler:The entire plot of ''EXCEED'', as well as the motivation of Agrado Heim, revolves around trying to gather enough restless souls to power their own WorldTree to cross to another dimension. This is the reason why they made war with the Shura, but also the reason why they seek the surviving Einst, bringing chaoas across the Endless Frontier and attempt to corrupt the Fujisakura. Were they to succeed, they plan to start the process all over again]].
** ThanatosGambit: [[spoiler:Members of Agrado Heim include themselves among the restless souls to harvest in their plan should they fail to win]].
* MeaningfulName: [[spoiler:"Gymnos Basileus" means "naked king" in Greek; having no body of it own, Gymnos hijacks Gagun's body to use]].
* NotQuiteDead [[spoiler:His soul's currently possessing W-05's body]].
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:When Gymnos gathers enough souls, he transforms into the "Svaiser"]].

!Lok Eye

%%* OurDemonsAreDifferent
* SummonMagic: When confronted by the party, he attempts to summon something across the dimensions. [[spoiler:Out pops Xiaomu, instead]].

!Hild Brun
* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking: "[[RedBaron The Queen of the Valkyries]]"
%%* EvilCounterpart: To Henne
* ShoutOut: To the {{Valkyrie}} [[Theatre/DerRingDesNibelungen "Brunhilde"/"Brünnhilde"]]

!Rig The Guard

* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Almost killed Aledy and Neige in the past until Cindy arrived to help.
* TheRival: Another one for Cindy; after his fight with her, he began to incorporate many Shura techniques into his style.

!The Gand Siblings
Its members include Vanar Gand, Hela Gand, Jolm Gand. How they classify as "siblings" despite being entirely different species is a mystery.
%%* StandardStatusEffects: Jolm's BreathWeapon
* TheRival: Vanar fought Aledy during the Agrado Heim-Shura war when the latter was still a child. Apparently, the young Aledy left quite an impression on him.
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler:All three sacrifice their souls to empower Gymnos, who transforms into the Svaiser]].
%%* SphereOfDestruction: Hela's Overdrive
* ThemeNaming: The siblings are named after entities from Myth/NorseMythology - "[[CanisMajor Vanargandr]]"[[note]]Another name for "Fenrir"[[/note]], "[[TheGrimReaper Hel]]" and "[[SeaMonster Jormungandr]]"[[note]]More popularly known as the "Midgard Serpent"[[/note]].


[[folder: Shadow-Mirror]]
One of the driving forces behind both games, they are the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance same-named faction]] from the main series. One of the Shadow-Mirror's ''Neverland''-class battleships broke in two during a dimensional jump, with the front and rear parts landing in Formido Heim and Lost Herencia, respectively. Their commander androids, [[ArtificialHuman the W-Numbers]], are key characters in all games.

Of the eleven W-Numbers that are known in ''Endless Frontier'', five are still unaccounted for.

--> See: [[spoiler:Haken Browning]].

!W-03 "Pete Pain" (Voiced by Creator/YuuichiNakamura)
Pete Pain is a W-Number designed to eliminate other W-Numbers, tasked with "clean up" and ensure any sensitive information does not fall into enemy hands. He uses a unique command "Code: PTP" (Play The Puppet) that overrides the programming of other W-Numbers. Throughout ''EXCEED'', Pete rebuilds various mecha destroyed from the first game to help him with his mission.
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:Knowing he has failed to kill the party for the last time in ''EXCEED'', Pete activates his SelfDestuctMechanism to allow them access into Agrado Heim]].
* CasanovaWannabe: Invokes this trope unintentionally at one point when he has Aschen and [[spoiler:Cardia Basirissa]] flanking him due to Code: PTP.
* MarionetteMaster: What the affects of Code: PTP does to fellow W-Numbers. At one point in ''EXCEED'', Pete manages to gain control of Aschen and [[spoiler: Cardia]]. He orders the latter to self-destruct at a specific point, and intends to kill Haken by ordering Aschen to do the same. A timely intervention and quick-thinking by [[spoiler:Axel]] activates Aschen's Code: DTD, which overrides Code: PTP.
* StandardStatusEffects: Appropriately, as he's not really a "fighting" android and more of a "command"-type.
* ShoutOut: [[Literature/PeterPan Well, duh....]]

--> See: [[spoiler:Agrado Heim]]

!W-06 "Cardia Basirissa" (Voiced by Mariko Suzuki)

%%* BladeBelowTheShoulder
%%* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning
* EvilTwin[=/=]TheRival: To Aschen; naturally, this is a CallBack to the similar rivalry between Lamia and Cardia's {{Expy}} [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Echidna "W-16" Iisaki]].

[[folder: Lost Herencia]]

!John Moses
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: After retiring, the people made him the mayor of Lost Herencia.
* BigGood: In the first game alongside Sanuki, and [[spoiler:Ezel in ''EXCEED'']].
* DirtyOldMan
** To hit this home, this is John's initial greeting to Kaguya:
--> "Eh? Who's this? I don't think I asked for one today, but I won't say no..."
** In ''EXCEED'', the first thing he does when the party meets him is to ask Kaguya and Neige to stand next to him. The girls oblige but aren't aware of the implications. [[spoiler:Axel]] stands in awe at the sight of two girls flanking the old man, while Aledy's blushing for some reason he can't define.
*** Neige actually catches on to the implications: one of her lines after being called to stand by John's side is:
---> "Daddy, can I have a new handbag?"
%%* TheRival: To Dorothy
* ShoutOut: Named after "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Browning John Moses Browning]]", the RealLife firearms manufacturer who designed the "Browning Automatic Rifle" (the BAR), "Colt M1911" and "FN Hi-Power".

!Crew of the ''Zeit Krokodil''
* {{Expy}}: [[HotScientist Professor Marion Sumii]] to [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationOthersAndWalkingSpoilers Doctor Marion Radom]]
* IAmAHumanitarian: It's hard to tell if Vice Chief Lee Ly's comments about how "scrumptious" people he meets should be taken seriously.
* ShoutOut: Marion's surname "[[Literature/PeterPan Sumii]]" and the man-[[Literature/PeterPan tiger Lee Ly]]


[[folder:Endless Frontier Mecha]]

The party's prescence throughout the Endless Frontier has attracted a number of beings similar to "[[HumongousMecha Personal]] [[AMechByAnyOtherName Troopers]]", only double a human's size. These turn out to be Gespensts of the Shadow-Mirror organization, modified in the Endless Frontier by the Orchestral Army to resemble the blueprints of the much larger Shadow-Mirror mecha.

!Alt Eisen Nacht

* CombinationAttack: "Rampage Specter" with the Weiss Ritter Abend, triggered only by Haken
* {{Expy}}: Of both the "[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Alt Eisen Riese]]" and his homonymous Shadow-Mirror counterpart.
* KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter: Like its namesake, the Nacht uses no energy-based weapons and is armed with solid-based weaponry
* MoreDakka: While the Nacht carries the exact loadout of the Riese, its PileBunker features an ''additional'' mini-claymore launcher that fires the same kind of titanium ball bearings as its normal variant on its ShouldersOfDoom.
* PileBunker: This version of the Nacht's primary weapon is called the "Revolving Breaker"
* TurnsRed: By default, the Nacht is blue, but once it enters into "rage mode", the blue coloring throughout its chassis turns to red.


* CombinationAttack: ''Haou Maretsu Ken'' with Aledy
%%* DemonicPossession
* EvilTwin: In the form of the ice-based ''Rasetsu-Ki'' and the stronger ''Arc-Ontes'', both of which are mass-produced versions created by Gerda for her army.
* {{Expy}}: Of the "[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Ialdabaoth]]"; essentially, the Ark-On's a PaletteSwap of Folka's Ialdabaoth, painted black in place of crimson.
%%* RapidFireFisticuffs
%%* SecretTestOfCharacter: To Aledy


One of the four robots created by Formido Heim, the Arkgain has been wandering throughout the Endless Frontier. Since its construction is more similar to an android than other mecha, Haken believes it is W-00.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:The Arkgain reappears in ''EXCEED'', having been rebuilt and reprogrammed by Pete Pain]].
%%* BladeBelowTheShoulder
%%* DemonicPossession
* {{Expy}}: Of the "[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Soulgain]]"
%%* RapidFireFisticuffs
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:The Arkgain is W-10; the one the party encounters in the first game is a mere replica. Upon [[GrandTheftPrototype stealing]] the Soulgain from the "Tesla-Leicht Institute" in her home dimension, Lemon realized the Soulgain's artificial exoskeleton and musculature can be used and mass-produced for {{Android}}s. The W-10 was based on the Soulgain, but unlike the rest of the W-Numbers, it had neither a human-like appearance or personality, made purely for combat, without its ability to blend in with humanoids]].


* AMechByAnyOtherName: Commonly known as a ''Yousei-Ki'' among its creators.
%%* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Fee-Kleid's Refined Swayer
* CombinationAttack: "Royal Heart Blaster" with Neige
%%* DanceBattler
* {{Expy}}: Of the "[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Fairlion]]"
%%* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning
%%* MagiTek
%%* ShoulderCannon: Fee-Kleid's Twisted Laser

!Gespenst Phantom

Usually just called "Phantom", this is another of the four robots created by Formido Heim. Using data found in the "Tinkerbell" supercomputer of the ''Neverland'' battleship, Cardia restores the Phantom's original programming after encountering it, assigning it to work alongside her. After being defeated by Haken (whom the Phantom designates as its primary user), it forcibly shuts itself down, allowing the party to capture it. When the Nacht and Abend malfunction following an encounter with Haken's party in Varna Kanai, the Phantom automatically inserts its programming into them, converting both machines to serve Haken and his allies. The Phantom follows Haken faithfully and by start of ''EXCEED'', is the only robot that still accompanies him (whereas the Nacht and Abend have mysteriously disappeared).
%%* {{BFS}}: Phantom's Grand Plasma Cutter
* CompositeCharacter: Phantom uses the black-color scheme of the original Gespenst used by [[Characters/CompatiHeroSeries Gilliam Yeager]], has larger versions of the Gespenst MK II Type-R's "Slash Ripper" called "[[FuumaShuriken Grand Slash Ripper]]", the same ChestBlaster as the Gespenst Type-S ("[[WaveMotionGun Neutron Blaster]]") and the "Gespenst Kick" from the Gespenst MK II Type-S.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: The fact the Phantom recognizes Haken as its "master" is the first indication of who Haken really is.
* GivenNameReveal: The machine is based on the [[spoiler:"Gespenst Haken", the personal unit of W-00]].
* OlderThanYouThink: InUniverse, the Phantom was built by Formido Heim ''after'' the Ten Year War, created to hunt down the Nacht, Abend and Arkgain.
* RobotBuddy: Once the Phantom joins the group, it is totally loyal to Haken. While it cannot talk back to him, Haken repeatedly shows gratitude towards it.


A ''karakuri'' used by Suzuka as a weapon. Unlike the other robots listed here, it is more or less a puppet controlled by strings attached to Suzuka's PaperFanOfDoom, thus not a ''true'' robot, despite its SuperRobot design.

[[folder:The Walking Spoilers]]

Due to the nature of the following character(s), spoilers are unmarked to avoid redundancy.


The true BigBad of the first game, [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 the Einst]] are the same [[EldritchAbomination entities]] from the main series, the source of all conflict that occurred in the Endless Frontier. When the overambitious king of Formido Heim attempted to explore a recently opened Cross Gate, he returned possessed by the Einst; this impostor started the Ten Year War of genocide with Elfetale. The Einst also possessed three machines that accompanied him: the Nacht, the Abend and the Arkgain.
* AGodAmI: The "Wahrschein Lichkeit" compares itself to "a Creator" with its last words in sharp constrast to their "father" the "Neue Regisseur". {{Irony}} abounds when it ''did'', in fact, create the Endless Frontier.
* BonusBoss: Ezel was unable to vanquish the Einst who impersonated the Formido Heim king, but the best he could do was seal it. It is considered the strongest boss in the first game if players decide to fight it.
* ContinuityNod: Look carefully at the environment the party is walking on when entering the Einst's dimension in ''Endless Frontier''. They're actually ''climbing on the [[GiantCorpseWorld corpse]]'' of the defeated "Stern Regisseur" from ''Original Generation 2''.

* MeaningfulName: Wahrschein Lichkeit means "probability" while "Wesent Lichkeit" means "materiality"/"essentiality"
* NotQuiteDead: Think that's the last of the Wahrschein Lichkeit? Hah!
* TheresNoPlaceLikeHome: Their desire to return home is their reason for committing their acts in the series. They opened a large number of Cross Gates when they landed in the Endless Frontier, eventually separating them, leading to the state they are during the first game.
