Weapon Type: [Highly-Customizable]

The first New-Type God Eater of the Fenrir Far East Branch. He or she is a member of the 1st Unit and later became leader after Lindow was declared MIA. While a Silent Protagonist for most of the main game, dialogue makes it clear the protagonist is a caring, good person with exceptional combat abilities. While nameless in the games, the protagonist has been named in other works: Yuu Kannagi for the male protagonist and Aki Tamashiro for the female protagonist.

Yuu and Aki are canonically a separate charactersnote . Character entry and tropes for Aki goes here.

  • Canon Name: If the old savedata from God Eater Burst wasn't transferred to God Eater 2, Yuu Kannagi will be a default name in NORN Database.
    • In the Japanese version of God Eater 2 Rage Burst, it's still possible to overwrite Yuu Kannagi with your own character. It only works if your old GE2 savedata was previously transferred from GEB (PSP) to GE2 (PSVita).
  • Celibate Hero: Despite the below the protagonist didn't particularly show any interest in romance do to being the silent protagonist but the anime gives a tragic reason. Averted with the manga.
  • Chick Magnet: All girls from Alisa to Hibari to even Tsubaki seem to warm up to the burst protagonist and the bond events in Resurrection increases this to Erina. It even happens when playing as a female. However, only Alisa, Licca, Hibari, Annette, Kanon and Erina seem to actually see the protagonist as much more than just a friend, judging by various lines and cutscenes. The infamous "Harem Beach Paradise" chapter in God Eater Offshot put this trope Up to Eleven.
  • Field Promotion: After Lindow goes MIA, Johannes appoints him/her as the new leader of the 1st Division, Lindow's previous post. Obviously, this surprised some at the Far East Branch, considering the protagonist is just a newcomer.
  • The Ghost: The protagonist is mentioned a few times in God Eater 2, but never makes a direct appearance him/herself.
  • Hair Colors: Customizable at character select and can be changed at any point throughout the game.
  • The Hero
  • Heroic B.S.O.D.: Suffers a massive one upon discovering that Lindow had become Corrosive Hannibal, especially since they know what the "cure" entails.
  • Heroic Mime: Played with. They talk while out in the field, but they are silent during cutscenes. There are two exceptions. The first is the beginning of the Burst storyline, where the protagonist serves as the narrator for the first cutscene. However, some may not immediately realize this on their first playthrough, especially if their chosen voice is not particularly distinct, and especially since the protagonist isn't shown speaking. More famously, the protagonist speaks in a scene near the end of the Burst storyline, telling Lindow not to give up on his life before ripping Corrosive Hannibal through the mouth with both their own and Lindow's God Arcs and punching through Corrosive Hannibal's Core. It's as awesome as it sounds.
    Protagonist: "Don't run away! Don't run away from living! That's an order!"
    • A third time happens in God Eater Resurrection, where the protagonist once more speaks in the cutscene following the fight against Arius Nova by way of issuing commands, as well as thanking Shio as her memory fragment leaves.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: To the First Unit, after Lindow seemingly dies. Especially seen with poor Alisa, who Took a Level in Badass because he/she was there.
  • Morph Weapon: Their New-Type God Arc (in contrast to Old-Types, which are one of the three gun or blade classes), can transform between a BFS and a BFG, as well as a Shield. Also, unlike other New-Type NPCs like Alisa, Annette and Federico, the Gun, Blade and Shield parts are also changeable — while New-Type NPCs have distinct gun, blade, and shield equips (short blade over long, assault gun over sniper, etc.), the protagonist can use all nine equipment types. Come Resurrection, the protagonist is the only one in the entire Far East branch to even be capable of using polearm-style melee weapons, as in Hammers, Spears and Scythes.
  • No Name Given: Except in the various light novel/manga adaptations, the protagonist is canonically male and most often known as "Yuu Kannagi".
    • In The Spiral Fate, the protagonist is known as "Ryo Kagami".
    • The anime has a unique and original protagonist, "Lenka Utsugi".
    • The Western version of Resurrection, "Shinji Kagura".
    • Thanks to Pachi-Slot God Eater, the female protagonist finally has a canon name: "Aki Tamashiro".
  • Not So Stoic: The protagonist is pretty stone faced throughout most of the main storyline, but come Burst they start to be put through the ringer and as such start having more emotional outbursts. The first notable occurence is when Lindow is confirmed to be alive, but Ren tells them that a God Eater that's been violently separated from his God Arc is going to have to be put down like a rabid dog. The normally gentle protagonist slams Ren into a vending machine for even suggesting that.
  • O.C. Stand-in: Yuu Kannagi, is this in the manga and Resurrection's opening, for the game's Protagonist.
  • Official Couple: In the manga Yuu Kannagi ends up with Alisa to a more-or-less confirmed state in the manga. There is a fair amount of Ship Tease between Alisa and the protagonist in-game due to Purely Aesthetic Gender they are a Celibate Hero. Lenka, however is oblivious to her crush do to his own issues.
  • Protagonist Without a Past: You can answer a couple questions in conversation to fill in small details, but how you answer makes no difference.
  • Purely Aesthetic Gender: Due in no small part to your status as a Silent Protagonist.
  • The Silent Bob: Despite lacking dialogue in most cutscenes, the protagonist manages to be fairly emotive through various facial expressions and different looks/nods.
  • Supporting Protagonist: Played with a bit. While the protagonist is definitely The Hero regardless, in the original game's story, most of the focus is on Soma, with the protagonist taking on something of a Deuteragonist role. In the Burst storyline, however, the protagonist firmly takes the role of... well, the protagonist, with Lindow taking over as Deuteragonist.
  • Telepathy: According to Dr. Sakaki, this, together with the ability to change the God Arc's mode at will, is apparently one of the abilities of a New-Type God Eater. This may also explain why they were able to instantly revive Alisa after a trauma-induced coma from unintentionally (seemingly) killing Lindow, detect the presence of Ren, and discover that Lindow had been turned into Corrosive Hannibal. Comes into play as a plot point in two of the manga adaptations, where Alisa learns or passes on sensitive information to the protagonist by using this skill.
  • Took a Level in Badass: By the end of the game. Some of the later missions aren't easy on a first attempt and/or if you haven't adequately prepared, and you'll be forced to to clear them solo — which gives you some idea of just how strong the protagonist is considered to be.
  • Virtual Paper Doll: The outfits and accessories that the player can wear come in all sorts of varieties, however none of them affect the player's abilities. Want to fight a murdering Eldritch Abomination in your underwear? Have at it.
  • World's Best Warrior: By the end of the first game they are the best God Eater of their branch and well revered in the sequel.

Yuu Kannagi

God Arc: 2nd Generation
Weapon Type: Long Blade/Assault Gun

The first game's canonical protagonist and poster boy of the entire God Eater franchise. Yuu primary serves as a Deuteragonist in other media. He was originally a shounen protagonist in his early appearances, he eventually turned into a stereotypical harem protagonist starting from God Eater: The Summer Wars and onwards.

  • Accidental Pervert: Part of his harem protagonist status, notably seen in The Summer Wars.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job/Hair Color Dissonance: The most notorious example due to various artists. He has light brown for the official artworks and light novels, brown for in-game appearance, dirty blonde for The Summer Wars manga, blonde for the other mangas, and lastly a mix of light brown and blonde for Pachi-Slot version.
  • Adaptational Wimp: While Yuu is Purposely Overpowered in all of his light novel and manga appearances for no reason. God Eater 2: Undercover on the other hand...
  • Bishōnen: Depending on the Artist. Yuu is rather attractive in his The Summer Wars, The 2nd Break and Pachi-Slot appearance.
  • Chick Magnet: A minor example in Burst and The Summer Wars, until he become a full-fledged chick magnet in Resurrection. See the Protagonist's same trope above for more details.
  • Close-Range Combatant: His original and preferred fighting style as shown in light novel/manga adaptations. This is the reason the protagonist is always in blade-form in the game's cutscenes.
    • A DLC NPC known as "Alisa/Alternate 2" from Resurrection serves as an exact copy of Yuu's original fighting style and God Arc.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes: Male example.
  • Fragile Speedster/Glass Cannon: Yuu is a powerful being and very skilled in dodging. However, Yuu got one weakness; he can't take a hit, and he can be also One-Hit-Point Wonder occasionally. This was proven true in the game's cutscenes and manga.
  • Gatling Good: The gun form of his God Arc, but he only use it on very rare occasions. See Close-Range Combatant above.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Clemencor God Arc.
  • Ideal Hero: How the light novel/manga adaptations portray him.
  • Morph Weapon
  • Mysterious Past: Being a Supporting Protagonist and Static Character both in the game and light novel/manga adaptations prevent Yuu from revealing his own backstory. No one knows who really he is and his past.
  • Nice Guy: Yuu's depicted personality in the light novel/manga adaptations. It also differ depending on the author.
  • Shirtless Scene: Yuu in a few chapters of The Summer Wars when at the beach. Also possible to pull off in-game as well with the swimwear for the male protagonist.
  • Shonen Hair
  • Sixth Ranger: His apparent role for the 1st Unit in Western version of Resurrection after Shinji left the Far East. This makes "Green Purebreeds" his first story mission where he accompanied Lindow and Alisa.
  • Unwanted Harem: Despite his Official Couple status with Alisa, he gains a number of admirers.

Lenka Utsugi

Voiced by: Ryuichi Kijima (Japanese) and Robbie Daymond (English)note 
Age: 15
Joined Far East Branch: 2071
God Arc: 2nd Generation
Weapon Type: Long Blade/Blast Gun

Original character and main protagonist in anime series. Unlike the other protagonists, Lenka is more traditional and realistic one.

  • Anime Hair: The most unrealistic hairstyle than everyone else. He almost makes the other characters with anime hairstyles including Silva Orcride look normal in comparison.
  • Anti-Hero: He's an idealist in a crumbling world, he wants the best for humanity, and his gift is stated to be his Heroic Resolve. What muddies up his status as a straight-up hero is that he's fueled by his hatred for all Aragamis.
  • Bad Dreams: Suffers from these.
  • The Cameo/Canon Foreigner: Can be recreated as a Player Character in Resurrection. Also with Adaptational Badass.
  • Character Development
  • Custom Uniform: Lenka's uniform is slightly modified especially the pants and boots. He is also wearing his signature blue cape instead of regular Fenrir formal jacket.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: How his backstory was revealed in Episode 10.
  • Determinator: The very core of his character.
  • Expy: Lenka is a God Eater version of Eren Yeager.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: The good one. Lenka's entire upper body is full of scars but his face is clean.
  • Green Eyes: His eye color before it turned gold in final episode.
  • Happily Adopted: With the Utsugi Family before their death.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Lenka is this after the deaths of his adoptive family, more specifically after his sister Iroha dies. To the point of pursuing vengeance against the Aragami even at the cost of his own life.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Rebellion God Arc.
    • BFS: Has a big freaking God Arc in Episode 12 and 13.
  • Hot-Blooded: In fairly stark contrast to Yuu Kannagi and even the different personalities of the in-game voices are relatively tame.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: Lenka has to be taught by Sakuya how to shoot his gun and in addition, didn't know how to switch between gun and blade mode of his God Arc.
  • Idiot Hero: Not precisely stupid, but lets his emotions get the better of him. The show [[Deconstruction deconstructs]] the typical shounen examples by showing the realistic consequence of rushing blindly on willpower alone, and thereby ignoring the plan that his superiors have set up.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: At least in starting episodes. Lenka have tendencies to charge at the Aragami without thinking.
  • Let's You and Him Fight: When Lenka and Alisa first meet in Episode 3.
  • Mega Manning: How Lenka gets the hang of his New-Type God Arc in Episode 3. Alisa seems perturbed at this.
  • Morph Weapon
  • Nice Guy: Lenka used to be this one, until a death of his adoptive family turned him into a vengeful being.
  • No One Gets Left Behind: In Episode 1, Lenka refuses to leave Eric who tells him to get away so he can live.
  • Not Blood Siblings: Lenka and Iroha are this due in part to Lenka being an adopted child.
  • Power Dyes Your Hair: In final episode, his hair turned gold while performing his final blow against Dyaus Pita. It revert back to normal after his recovery from injuries.
  • The Power of Hate: What really motivates him is his desire to eradicate every Aragami on the planet.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: It's very easy to say that Lenka's entire life is one. But after the Aragamis killed his entire adoptive family, he promised to kill them all.
  • Say Your Prayers: Despite Lenka saying in Episode 2 that he no longer believes in prayers, in Episode 5, before the land bridge collapses with Lenka, Alisa, and the Dyaus Pita, the last thing Lenka does before they fall into the river is pray to God.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: In Episode 1, as soon as Lenka realizes there's no one to send to defend the Aragami invasion, he run out of the room, steals his God Arc, and runs out to battle.
  • Shirtless Scene: During his aptitude test in Episode 1.
  • Sole Survivor: Of the small village where he grew up.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: He lacks combat experience and skills, but his hard-hitting, durability and agility makes up for it.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: It is revealed that Lenka's God Arc's Oracle cells are consuming his body, and should he continue to use his God Arc, he will die.

Shinji Kagura

Voiced by: None[note ]
Joined Far East Branch: 2071
Transferred to Russia Branch: 2071
God Arc: 2nd Generation
Weapon Type: [Highly-Customizable] (default is Long Blade/Assault Gun)

The canon protagonist of God Eater Resurrection, replacing Yuu Kannagi for said game's localized Western version. Story about him can be found in God Eater official English website, starting his diary from Log 1 to Log 26.

  • Cultural Translation: The main canon protagonist for the Western version of Resurrection.
  • Decoy Protagonist: Turns out to be this. Shinji is the main protagonist only in Rank 1 and 2, he left the Far East Branch and transferred to Russia Branch after he cleared a mission exclusively for him called "Revenge on the Vajra". Yuu takes the spotlight after Shinji's departure.
  • The Hero
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Subverted. Shinji is impatient and always eager to go on a mission, but he is very cautious, always prepared and thinks twice before he acts.
    • The only time he went straight to this trope is he tried to take on a wandering Vajra all by himself, putting him to a temporary coma.
  • Morph Weapon
  • Nice Guy: The only drawback of Shinji's kind-hearted personality is he doesn't get along to those who have high-and-mighty attitude, notably Alisa. His diary's "Log 24" confirmed this.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: With his sister, Reika.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Shinji's backstory shares a remarkable similarity with that of Lenka Utsugi. A major difference being that Shinji was not adopted and his family was blood-related to him.
  • Reassigned to Antarctica: Non-punishment example. Shinji transferred to Fenrir Russia Branch after he slay a specific Vajra that put him to a temporary coma.
  • Younger Than They Look: He look like in 20's, but he is only underage teenage boy.

God Arc: 1st Generation (later 2nd Generation)
Weapon Type: Long Blade (later Long Blade/Assault Gun)

Team Captain of the 1st Unit, which the Protagonist belongs to. May joke around a bit much, but he's serious about his job and a well-respected member of the Far East Branch.

  • The Ace: Well revered as one of the best God Eaters that the Far East Branch has produced. He's even rumored to have taken down an Ouroboros by himself, which is revealed to have actually happened during the Burst storyline.
  • And I Must Scream: He's aware of his actions as the Corrosive Hannibal, however he lacks full control. He can't stop himself from attacking his fellow God Eaters or warn them to get away from him.
  • Badass Longcoat: A unique and awesome one fitting the badass that he is. After you beat the main storyline you can even make it for yourself.
    • His Cradle uniform also this in the sequel, combined with a gold gauntlet.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Mutates into the Corrosive Hannibal.
  • Battle in the Center of the Mind: The Protagonist goes through this in order to save him from the Corrosive Hannibal infection.
  • Beware the Nice Ones/Beware the Silly Ones: Lindow sounds very audibly pissed when he goes into Burst Mode through the effects of the 'Beloved' and 'Friendship' Skills.
    Lindow: That bastard!
  • BFS: Corroded Lindow uses a Buster Blade produced from his body in the same manner as Shio's God Arc.
  • Came Back Strong: After returning due to the Protagonist's miraculous rescue, he becomes a New-Type God Eater, with not only the perks that come with it, but also the added benefits of becoming immune to most dangerous status effects, including Stun.
  • The Casanova: He occasionally blows off a mission because he has a "hot date" lined up. They're excuses to cover for both his special jobs as a Unit leader and his investigations into the Ark Project.
  • Chainsaw Good: Uses the chainsaw blade type for his God Arc.
  • Chekhov M.I.A.: For the duration of the main storyline.
  • Custom Uniform: Most of Fenrir uniforms are too rookie-ish for him, Lindow is wearing a Commando uniform, perfectly fit for his leader position.
  • Dead Guy Junior: In the sequel, he and Sakuya have a child named Ren.
  • Draconic Humanoid: A "Corroded" version of Lindow who has begun but not yet fully completed his transformation into the Corrosive Hannibal is an unlockable character in 2.
  • Empathic Weapon: Lindow's God Arc personified itself as Ren during the Burst story.
  • A Father to His Men: His number one priority is to get every man home.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: At the end of the Burst storyline.
  • Happily Married: With Sakuya at the end of the Burst story. The marriage is still strong in the sequel and they have a child together.
  • He Knows Too Much: Seemingly offed by Johannes, with Alisa as the Unwitting Pawn, for delving too much into Johannes's involvement in the insane Ark Project.
  • Heroic Build
  • Heroic Sacrifice: While he didn't have much choice in the manner, he singlehandedly holds off a Prithvi Mata to buy everyone else time to escape. However, the opening movie seems to suggest that he's Not Quite Dead.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Soma.
  • Hunk: Tall and athletic build.
  • The Leader: Of the 1st Unit.
  • The Men First: He has one standing order: "Don't die."
  • Mentor Archetype
  • The Mole: He was tasked by the higher-ups at Fenrir to investigate Johannes's Ark Project.
  • Not Quite Dead: Managed to hold off a Prithvi Mata, only to have his Armlet badly damaged and subsequently devoured by a Dyaus Pita, causing Oracle Cell contamination in his body. He was saved by Shio at the last minute.
    • Number Two: Lindow becomes a Second in Command due to his absence, and The Protagonist is now a Lieutenant.
  • One-Man Army: Took an Ouroboros down by himself.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: They cover his left eye, while Tsubaki (his sister) has bangs that cover her right eye.
  • Red Right Hand: Gains one after winning the Battle in the Center of the Mind against Corrosive Hannibal at the end of the Burst story.
  • Shirtless Scene: Seen as the Aragami cells begin to mutate his body.
  • Shock and Awe: His God Arc's element is Spark and you can make it for yourself after beating the main storyline. Ironically this is also an element that he's weak to as the Corrosive Hannibal in Burst.
  • Smoking Is Cool
  • Spell My Name with an "S": In the Japanese version, his code name reads "Rindou" (in English). This was changed to Lindow for the English version.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: 182cm (6'0").
  • Walking Spoiler: Especially his entire existence in God Eater 2.

God Arc: 1st Generation
Weapon Type: Sniper Gun

Vice Captain of the 1st Unit and also a Sniper Ace Medic. A reliable senior who gets along well with just about everyone, as well as a long-time acquaintance of Lindow and Tsubaki. She takes on missions at the Field Leader level occasionally and oversees an early training mission. She is also a former mission counter girl before Hibari took her place.

  • Action Girl: Like all female God Eaters. She's one of the more experienced God Eaters in the Far East Branch though.
  • Boobs of Steel: Sakuya's an Action Girl in a Crapsack World and she's also got the biggest rack on the cast.
  • Combat Medic
  • Cool Big Sis: Most obvious with Alisa, though she's essentially this to everyone at the Far East Branch.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Over the course of the story she has to deal with losing her boyfriend, taking care of the team he left behind and help stop the Apocalypse by killing her former boss. It doesn't get much better by the time Burst rolls around and her boyfriend turns out to be alive but has now turned into a bloodthirsty monster. Thankfully the team gets him back, and in the end Sakuya and Lindow get married and start a family.
  • Friendly Sniper: She has one of the lowest rates of friendly fire, apologizes if she hits you, and is one of the best healers in the game.
  • The Ghost: Mentioned several times by Lindow in the sequel but she doesn't made an appearance herself.
  • Happily Married: With Lindow at the end of the Burst story.
  • Jiggle Physics: And extremely noticeable, to the point where it's almost distracting in otherwise serious conversations. Everytime Sakuya so much as walks, her boobs visibly shake.
  • Number Two: Vice Captain of the 1st Unit.
  • Ms. Fanservice
  • This is Something She's Got to Do Herself: After Lindow's "death", Sakuya discovers a disc containing his report on Aegis Island, and decides to continue what he left behind. She tried to keep this secret from the Protagonist and Alisa, but after retrieving Lindow's Armlet from a Dyaus Pita (the missing link required to fully unlock the disc's secrets) she finally tells them the truth.
  • Sexy Backless Outfit
  • Show Girl Skirt
  • Stripperific: She wears a piece of cloth for a top and some hotpants underneath her sarong.
  • She's Got Legs: Her right leg.
  • Sideboob
  • Vapor Wear: She's obviously not wearing a bra.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: Though this isn't quite as obvious due to her Show Girl Skirt.

God Arc: 1st Generation
Weapon Type: Buster Blade

A member of the 1st Unit, Soma has served since he was twelve. He's not fond of teamwork and prefers working alone. Since he was injected with the Bias Factor while his mother was pregnant, he was used as the base for future God Eaters.

  • Ambiguously Brown: His father's fair skin and his mother's dark skin average out to a nice tan shade.
  • Character Development: Soma starts off as being emotionally distant from his fellow teammates and not really caring about anything or anyone, simply filling his life with the act of killing Aragami. This changes over the course of the story, specifically the moments when he meets Shio and bonds with her. By the sequel Soma is practically a different person, albeit for the better.
  • Child Soldiers: He's been a God Eater since he was 12 years of old.
  • Defrosting Ice King
  • Embarrassing Nickname: According to Shun, most God Eaters who accompanied Soma are often killed on a mission. The latest and probably the last victim is Eric. This is how Soma earn his nickname, "Shinigami" ("Death God" in English version).
  • Establishing Character Moment: Kills an Aragami that just murdered a teammate without batting an eyelash and then is the only one who isn't shook up by his death or mourns him. Soma is a cold, calculating professional that has been hardened by growing up in a Crapsack World and being The Jinx with so many other teammates having died on him before. Thankfully he goes through Character Development to change this.
  • Fingerless Gloves
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Since he was injected with the Bias Factor while his mother was still pregnant, he is technically half-Aragami.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Lindow.
  • I Work Alone: He grows out of this. Gameplay-wise however, his AI doesn't — if an Aragami is winding up for an attack, Soma takes defensive action ridiculously early, giving the player clues about enemy attack patterns.
  • Ineffectual Loner
  • In the Hood: The only time he takes off his hood is in the epilogue of the God Eater story.
    • In God Eater 2, he discards it outright for a white coat.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's aloof and abrasive, but he cares about his fellow God Eaters much more than he'd like to admit.
  • The Jinx: He is viewed as one by some God Eaters, considering how many have died when in the field with him. This ends eventually: in his final profile sheet, it's noted that the teams he joins up with for missions have the lowest death rates, and in the one before that, he's even slated for a promotion to Field Leader, though he insists on staying with the First Unit.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Though Soma already knew, the protagonist learns (through a video dropped by Dr. Sakaki) that Johannes and another scientist, Aisha Gauche, are Soma's parents.
  • Man in White: His new look in God Eater 2 includes a solid white long coat.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Manly Man to Eric's Sensitive Guy.
  • The Smart Guy: In 2 he takes over as the Den's head of Aragami research, as Dr. Sakaki is busy acting as director. He clearly inherited his parents' scientific acumen.
  • The Stoic
  • Stone Wall: His survival rate is very high, but he has low strength. Contrast Brendan's Glass Cannon.
    • Mighty Glacier: His unlockable Personal Ability can make him both hard-hitting and durable.
  • Super Prototype: Due to the experiment performed on Soma before he was born, he is actually half-Aragami and is the original God Eater.
  • When He Smiles: Can only be seen smiling around Shio. At least only to her, initially...

God Arc: 1st Generation
Weapon Type: Assault Gun

A new team member of the 1st Unit along with the Protagonist. While he performs fine in combat, he doesn't hold well with drills and lectures.

  • Animal Motif: Has a spider on the back of his shirt and a web pattern on the front, though he doesn't act like a spider in any way.
  • Bare Your Midriff: With both of his available outfits in the first game!
  • Book Dumb: He regularly falls asleep during Dr. Sakaki's lectures.
  • Bratty Half-Pint
  • Bromantic Foil: Can come off as this for the male Protagonist, though YMMV on how much of a foil one can be to a Silent Protagonist.
  • Combat Medic: In 2, he'll fire recovery bullets if the protagonist runs out of health. Good positioning will ensure his bullets hit you before you're incapacitated.
  • Fingerless Gloves
  • Friendly Sniper: He's one of the friendliest guys in the game and he sticks to using guns.
  • Heroic B.S.O.D.: Dealt with one when he was forced to choose between staying behind and be killed in the Devouring Apocalypse or move with his family away to Aegis. He ultimately decides to stay and stop Johannes' Ark Project, after realizing that the Ark Project will only evacuate select God Eaters and their families up to the first degree (around a mere 1,000 survivors, not counting Johannes himself) when his younger sister Nozomi asked him if he could bring her friends.
  • Keet: Loud, energetic and raring to go at all times.
  • The Leader: Of Far East Branch's 1st Unit in 2.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Some shades of this, and Alisa berates him for being careless. He's less so in actual combat.
  • Older and Wiser: Come 2, he becomes less reckless and more responsible, though he hasn't lost his energetic streak. He even takes Erina and Emil as proteges.
  • Sadistic Choice: Betray his fugitive comrades and support the Director's insane Ark project to guarantee the safety of his family? Or keep his family at risk in the Outer Ghetto while sparing the remnants of humanity from obliteration? He ultimately decides to stay for his friends.

Voiced by: Maaya Sakamoto (Japanese) and Kate Higgins [Games], Cherami Leigh [Anime] (English)
Age: 15 (1) / 18 (2)
Joined Russia Branch: 2070
Transferred to Far East Branch: 2071
Joined Cradle: 2074
God Arc: 2nd Generation
Weapon Type: Long Blade/Assault Gun

She is the second New-Type God Eater of the 1st Unit, transferring from Fenrir's Russian branch. She is subject to special therapy sessions on a regular basis.

  • Action Girl: Like all female God Eaters, she can, and does, kick plenty of Aragami ass.
  • The Atoner: Not that she needs to, but she feels the burden of having apparently killed Lindow weighing heavily on her. She spends the latter half of the Burst arc trying to bring back Lindow, to absolve herself of that "sin", and at the end she mails the Protagonist, thanking him/her for helping her lift the burden away.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her outfits in God Eater Burst and God Eater 2.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Odin, dva, tri...
  • Character Development: Upon her arrival she initially passes off as an insufferable Alpha Bitch, but as time passed (especially after her Freak-Out which apparently killed Lindow), she gradually developed into a considerate, caring God Eater, as well as a big-sister figure for Shio. Her AI even changes to reflect her altered outlook, gaining recovery bullets and learning to share Aragami Bullets with others.
  • Combat Medic: Many consider her to be one of the most useful AI teammates. She heals you often, and being the only New-Type companion in the original game, was the only way single players could make use of Link Burst and Condensed Bullets.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Both her parents were killed right before her eyes during a game of hide-and-seek as a child, leaving her an emotional wreck. As if that wasn't bad enough she was later conscripted into the New-Type God Eater program and brainwashed into assassinating Lindow under the impression that he was the Aragami that killed her parents.
  • Demoted to Extra: Though she still appears in the sequel, Alisa's importance has diminished to the overall plot though she and the former 1st Unit members of the first game still lend a hand to the Blood Unit every now and then.
  • Dude Magnet: She attracts a lot of guys attention and has more than one fan club among them.
  • Expy: Foreign? Check. Alpha Bitch? Check. One or more dead parents? Check. Hello, Asuka!
  • Fingerless Gloves: Only her right hand.
  • Freak-Out: You've been warned by Dr. Oguruma before you even meet her that she's mentally unstable and requires therapy every day, so this was inevitable.
  • Gameplay and Story Integration: After her Heroic B.S.O.D., Alisa will literally be useless in any mission until you complete her training quests. She then becomes one of the best AI teammates, still showing this trope. Due to your value to her, she prioritizes supporting you with healing bullets and Condensed Bullets, while not firing if you're in her line of fire.
  • Gatling Good: The gun form of her God Arc.
  • Heroic B.S.O.D.: She has a massive one after she realizes that her actions under the influence of brainwashing (supposedly) led Lindow to his death.
  • Lethal Chef: The manga adaptation portrays her as one. It's hinted at in 2 as well.
  • Manchurian Agent: She's been brainwashed by Johannes and his cronies before she joins the Far East Branch to turn into their personal executioner after feeding her a few code words. The first major use of this is when they try to make her assassinate Lindow on a mission and then later turn on Sakuya when she discovers the truth about Aegis.
  • Morph Weapon: Like all New-Type God Eaters, her God Arc can shift between BFS and BFG modes.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Promoted to the position as of The 2nd Break manga set 3 years after the first game. Most notably her new coat zips down instead of up, but her breasts are too big to let the zipper pass, resulting in even more blatant underboob. A small crowd of admirers express their "relief" at the sight after worrying that her new uniform would actually cover her up.
  • Nice Girl: After her character development. On rare occasions, Alisa revert back to her former self, especially when Kota does something stupid.
  • Nice Hat: She initially lacks one in The 2nd Break but is given a new one by Yuu.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: Wears sheer tights along with her skirt, though it's not so obvious because of her thigh high boots. Loses the tights by the time of God Eater 2.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Takes both roles.
    • She's the Blue Kota's Red, as she's sensible and tactical while he's impulsive and reckless.
    • On the other hand, she's the Red to the Protagonist's Blue, as she's incredibly emotional and s/he's her Living Emotional Crutch. Even shown ingame: She has her own personal God Arc set of gun, blade and shield, all of which are Red and specialize in Fire. Midway through the game, she gives you a blue version of the shield as a thank you present, and you can get blue versions of the gun and blade as well, all of which specialize in Ice.
  • Ship Tease: With the protagonist. Being a Silent Protagonist, this can go normally or not.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: In the media-based universe, Alisa is in love with the kind and gentle Yuu Kannagi. Which is the canon name for the Protagonist of the first game and its remakes.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Her surname is Омела (Mistletoe). The correct romanization of this word is Omela but it's localized as Amiella instead (this is likely due to the Japanese habit to romanize foreign names by how they sound).
  • Underboobs: Not as noticeable as most. In the anime however...
  • Vapor Wear: She doesn't appear to be wearing a bra under that revealing "shirt".
  • Zettai Ryouki: Grade-A. With her boots, anyway. More prominent in her new uniform in God Eater 2.

Shio

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/06_shio.jpg
Voiced by: Yukari Fukui (Japanese) and Mona Marshall (English)
Age: (Unknown)
Joined Far East Branch: 2071
God Arc: 2nd Generation
Weapon Type: Short Blade/Assault Gun

A humanoid Aragami with a Bias Factor which makes her averse to devouring humans. She was discovered by Dr. Sakaki and was since taken under his wing. She possesses the Singularity, a Core that is the key to causing the Devouring Apocalypse, and is therefore a target of Johannes. He eventually got his hands on her and embedded her core into Nova, beginning the Devouring Apocalypse. After Johannes's defeat, she thanks everyone for what they've done for her and asks Soma to devour her body so she may carry Nova away to save everyone.

  • Anti Anti Christ: As a Singularity she is destined to be a vital part of triggering the Devouring Apocalypse, but after her experiences with Fenrir she develops empathy and in the ending of the original game, just as the Devouring Apocalypse is about to trigger, she takes the Nova to the moon so that humanity will be spared.
  • Apocalypse Maiden: Shio is the key to triggering the Devouring Apocalypse, which would spell doom for everyone on Earth if taken advantage of. Thankfully Shio's experiences with her human friends keeps her from letting that happen.
  • Badass Adorable: Cute, friendly and just as capable of kicking ass against the Aragami alonside her God Eater friends.
  • Big Damn Heroes: In the Burst storyline, it is revealed that she saved Lindow by intervening in his fight with a Dyaus Pita and "telling" it to leave them. She then tended to his Red Right Hand and chained it lest it may overtake him. While this couldn't keep the transformation at bay forever, without her intervention there would likely have never been the chance for the protagonist to bring Lindow back from the brink.
  • Big Eater: Well, she is an Aragami; this is inevitable. Dr. Sakaki gathered a large number of cores in preparation for taking her in, and she chewed through the lot in a fraction of the time he expected.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: The God Arc she wields in battle is generated for her own arm and is a part of her.
  • Catch-Phrase: "I'm ready to eat!"
  • Cheerful Child: Very inquisitive and friendly.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Given that she wasn't raised by humans, Shio's a bit...odd when you first find her. She starts to become more coherent after spending some time with Fenrir, but her cuckooness is still present.
  • Cute Monster Girl: She looks just like a cute little human girl except for her golden eyes and chalk-white skin.
  • Eater of Her Own Kind: The Aragamis are her food.
  • Extreme Omnivore: As an Aragami she'll eat most anything. Thankfully, her Bias is such that she won't devour humans.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Asks Soma to devour her body so she can lift Nova away to the Moon and save everyone.
  • Not Quite Dead: She's last seen prancing about on the terraformed Moon, gazing upon Earth.
  • Shout-Out: Upon receiving an Aragami Bullet from a teammate, she will sometimes shout, "THE STRONGEST!" Possibly in reference to a certain pink-clad martial artist.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Her name is Shio in both English and Japanese versions, but her codename in the Japanese version is "Chiot" (so it's pronounced the French way.)
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?

One of the three Burst exclusive characters and a New-Type God Eater, together with Annette and Federico. His introduction claim he was assigned to the Medical Unit. He turns out to be a personification of Lindow's God Arc after Lindow became Hannibal.

  • By the Eyes of the Blind: Ren can only be seen and heard by the protagonist and Lindow, as no one else is shown to ever take notice of his/her presence. This also carries over into combat — your allies will not heal or revive Ren, since they aren't aware of him.
  • Combat Medic: A good substitute for Sakuya. He has anti-aggro skills and, as a New-Type, can also enter Burst mode by devouring, as well as boost the protagonist with Aragami bullets.
  • Friendly Sniper: Ren focuses a lot on his Gun and rarely uses his Blade.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Saves Lindow from Corrosive Hannibal by taking a hit for him.
  • Living Weapon: He is the personification of Lindow's God arc.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Just like Shio. And fittingly so, since he too is, at least in a sense, a human-form Aragami.

  • I Work Alone: Tries to invoke this, but given this is a team game he fails in the attempt.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Likes to charge enemies on his own when The Leader is not with him. Doubles with Suicidal Overconfidence as his profile states that he lacks the skills necessary to handle such antics.
