Joined Far East Branch: 2071 (present)
God Arc: New-Type [Highly-Customizable]
The first New-Type God Eater of the Fenrir Far East Branch. S/He is a member of the 1st Unit and later became leader after Lindow was declared MIA.
  • Badass: You can solo every mission, but it's extremely difficult in some cases.
    • Took a Level in Badass: By the end of the game. Though "Thor's Banquet" isn't an easy mission if you don't know what you are doing or if it's your first time.
  • Canon Name: Yuu Kannagi.
  • 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, considering s/he is just a newcomer.
  • The Ghost: He is mentioned a few times in God Eater 2, but never makes direct appearance.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: The canon appearance of Yuu is blond and definitely a nice guy.
  • Heroic BSOD: Suffers a massive one upon discovering that Lindow had become Corrosive Hannibal.
  • 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 s/he serves as the narrator for the first cutscene. However, some may not realize this on their first playthrough until after the fact, especially if their chosen voice is not particularly distinct. More remembered is the scene near the end of the said storyline, when s/he tells Lindow not to give up on his life before ripping Corrosive Hannibal through the mouth with both his/her and Lindow's God Arcs and punching through its Core.
    Protagonist: "Don't run away! Don't run away from living! That's an order!"
  • Morph Weapon: His/Her New-Type God Arc (in contrast to Old-Types, which are fixed), can transform between a BFS and a BFG, as well as a Shield. Also, unlike other New-Type NPCs like Alisa, Anette and Federico, the Gun, Blade and Shield parts are also changeable.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: To the First Unit, after Lindow seemingly dies. Especially seen with poor Alisa, who Took a Level in Badass because he was there.
  • Nice Guy: His personality in the novel/manga adaptations.
  • No Name Given: Except in the various novel/manga adaptations, the Protagonist is apparently male and most often known as "Yuu Kannagi", except in The Spiral Fate, where he is known as "Ryo Kagami".
  • 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 Silent Protagonist.
  • 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 s/he was 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 him.
  • The Cameo: The female protagonist in The Spiral Fate and The 2nd Break manga.
  • The Hero

Lindow Amamiya

Voiced by: Hiroaki Hirata (Japanese) and Kyle Hebert (English)
Age: 26 (1) / 29 (2)
Joined Far East Branch: 2061
God Arc: Old-Type Long Blade -> New-Type Long Blade/Assault Gun
Leader of the 1st Unit, which the Protagonist belongs to. May joke around a bit too much, but he's serious about his job.

Sakuya Tachibana

Voiced by: Sayaka Ohara (Japanese) and Michelle Ruff (English)
Age: 21 (1) / 24 (2)
Joined Far East Branch: 2065
God Arc: Old-Type Sniper Gun
Second in Command of the 1st Unit and also a Sniper Ace Medic. A reliable senior who gets along with just about everyone, as well as a long-time acquaintance of Lindow and Tsubaki. She is also a former mission counter girl before Hibari took her place.

Soma Schicksal

Voiced by: Kazuya Nakai (Japanese) and Yuri Lowenthal (English)
Age: 18 (1) / 21 (2)
Joined Far East Branch: 2064
God Arc: Old-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.

Kota Fujiki

Voiced by: Daisuke Sakaguchi (Japanese) and Johnny Yong Bosch (English)
Age: 15 (1) / 18 (2)
Joined Far East Branch: 2071 (present)
God Arc: Old-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
  • Book Dumb
  • Bratty Half-Pint
  • Bromantic Foil: Can come off as this for 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 bullet if the protagonist runs out of health.
  • Fingerless Gloves
  • Heroic BSOD: 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.
  • Friendly Sniper
  • Keet
  • The Leader: Of Far East Branch's 1st Unit in 2.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Some shades of this, as 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.

Alisa Ilinichina Amiella

Voiced by: Maaya Sakamoto (Japanese) and Kate Higgins (English)
Age: 15 (1) / 18 (2)
Joined Russia Branch: 2070
Transferred to Far East Branch: 2071 (present)
God Arc: New-Type Long Blade/Assault Gun
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
  • All Training No Experience: Alisa comes in decked with the highest scores in the simulations. This changes after her Heroic BSOD, which leads to you and her alone killing several powerful Aragami.
  • 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.
  • Badass: Considering she has little to no combat experience and the fact that she has just recovered from being Brainwashed and Crazy, not to mention hospitalized, she starts a chain of missions involving just you and her, taking down rather tough enemies. Mind, she considers these simple training missions to get back into shape.
  • Bare Your Midriff
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Ajin, douva, touri...
  • 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: In the upcoming sequel, God Eater 2, Alisa will not appear in the story missions, but can be recruited in the challenge missions.
  • 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.
  • Gatling Good
  • Gameplay and Story Integration: After her Heroic BSOD, Alisa will literally be useless in any mission until you complete her training quests. She then becomes one of the best AI teammates and 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.
  • Heroic BSOD: 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.
  • Morph Weapon
  • 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 Hat
  • Underboobs: Not as noticeable as most.
  • 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 (the canon name for the Burst protagonist).
  • Thigh-High Boots
  • Vapor Wear: She doesn't appear to be wearing a bra under that revealing "shirt".
  • Zettai Ryouki: With her boots anyway. More prominent in her new uniform in God Eater 2.

    God Eater 2 Characters 

The Protagonist (God Eater 2)

Joined Blood: 2074 (present)
God Arc: New-Type [Highly-Customizable]
A new member of Blood, an affiliate Aragami control force of Fenrir which runs a mobile base.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: How s/he gets to be the Number Two of Blood.
  • Badass: Wouldn't be a God Eater protagonist without being one. To name a few of his/her feats, s/he is the first to awaken his/her Blood Power and successfully injures Marduk's left eye.
  • Boobs of Steel: The female protagonist is rather well-endowed, and yes, she's a bad-ass.
  • The Comically Serious: To some extent. Some of the Character Episodes, such as Kigurumi and Haru, are downright bizarre, yet the protagonist responds to the whole situation with such straight face.
  • The Gadfly: Can be played as this in Erina's Character Episode and also another of her episodes' instances when she asks if you saw her growing Blood Art in battle (one choice which references her panty's white color).
  • The Hero
  • Heroic Mime: Just like his/her predecessor, although he/she occasionally speaks during mission banter. This makes it very surprising when he/she finally speaks one line of dialogue before the final battle.
    • Silent Bob: Surprisingly, he/she is quite expressive in Character Episodes. Especially when you put him/her together with someone like Emil.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: Much like the first protagonist, s/he eventually becomes this for Blood members. Especially Ciel, who regards him/her as her first friend. In Ciel and Gilbert's cases, his/her involvement is also practically the reason behind their Blood Power's awakening.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Come on, go to youtube and see the different haircuts for him. Yeah, that's a nice bishonen hero.
  • Megaton Punch: Played for Laughs in one of Emil's Character Episodes.
  • Morph Weapon: Just like the previous protagonist.
  • Nice Guy: Regardless of the personality choice during character creation, the hero(ine) is generally portrayed as this in Character Episodes.
    • Big Brother Mentor: For Kanon (who then calls him/her as sensei) and Erina.
    • Sempai/Kohai: Erina eventually regards him/her as her sempai as a form of respect.
  • No Name Given: In the manga the male protagonist is given the name Hiro Kamui, but there's no confirmation yet if it's canon.
  • Number Two: Immediately becomes the second-in-command of Blood for being the first one to awaken his/her Blood Power.
  • Purely Aesthetic Gender
  • Ship Tease: Has quite a few with both Ciel and Gilbert.
  • Super Empowering: His/her Blood Power amplifies powers and allows other people, non-Blood members included, to use Blood Arts/Blood Bullets.

Joined Blood: 2074

Julius' bodyguard and member of Blood. She has a calm demeanor, but can hold a gun in times of crisis.

  • Bodyguard Crush: To Julius, it would seem at first glance- in reality, she feels nothing more to him than a close childhood acquaintance and person to guard.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Loves the Far East Branch's Lounge Pet Karby, and is responsible for making it so huge by feeding it regularly.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: She even has light pink panties to go with her casual frilled clothes outfit.
  • Fingerless Gloves
  • Friendless Background: Due to her strict upbringing, she doesn't have friends at all. The protagonist is her first friend.

  • Friendly Sniper: Rarely hits the player.
  • Girlish Pigtails

  • The Medic: Shoots out Heal Lasers when player is at low health, but due to slow speed of the bullet, it usually never saves a near-incapacitated player.
  • Morph Weapon
  • Sensor Character: She has "Enemy HP Vision" and "Sensitive" skills, allowing the player to know the enemies' battle status and remaining health.
  • She's Got Legs: With a combat knife strapped to her thigh.
  • Ship Tease: Quite a few with the protagonist, with him/her being her first friend and all.
  • The Stoic: Most of the time. She often smiles around the protagonist, however.

God Arc: New-Type Charge Spear / Assault Gun (previously Old-Type Charge Spear)
A veteran God Eater and transferred into Blood with five years worth of combat experience.
  • The Comically Serious: Possibly, if the way he responds to Emil's over-the-top introduction in such bored manner says anything.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: A pretty serious one. He's nicknamed Flagging Gil after being forced to kill a superior officer during a mission (the Aragami they were battling damaged her armlet, and he had to kill her to prevent her from transforming into an Aragami herself).
  • Fur and Loathing: Wears it and acts it to strangers.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: The good one.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Seems to be this, as during the Flagging Gil incident it is rumored that he killed his superior.
  • In-Series Nickname: Gil.
  • It's Personal: The battle against Rufus Caligula is this for him, being the very same Aragami that forced him to kill his superior.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: With an emphasis on the latter. Despite his rude first appearance and constantly not getting along well with Romeo, he is concerned for his teammates well-being and is shown to be on good terms with the protagonist. His former superior even noted that Gilbert is a kind person.
  • Jousting Lance
  • Just in Time: Soon after the protagonist awakens his/her Blood Power, he and the others arrive just when a Marduk is about to attack the exhausted him/her and successfully drive it away.

  • Nice Hat: Does not don it with his New Year's Free DLC outfit.

  • Abusive Parental Substitute: Doesn't show it until very late in the game, but the entire reason of her adopting Julius is so that she can have a puppet to play with.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Used to be a quiet doll obsessive sister for Leah, which promptly caused her to push Rachel down the stairs as a child and disable her spine down.
  • Big Bad
  • Blondes are Evil
  • Creepy Good: Comes across as this due to her manner of speaking and her appearance. And she's later revealed to be not on the side of humans in the slightest.
  • Enfante Terrible: She already had the idea of causing Devouring Apocalypse ever since she was saved as a child with the P73 Bias Factor of great regeneration power. It remains unknown whether she is driven by her own desire or the Aragami spirit inside her, however.
  • Evil Genius and Evil Cripple : YMMV. Only completely evil by the non-analyzing eye, however. Whether or not she feels hatred or anything negative towards humanity is unknown as she may be driven by a more primitive "devouring sense" from within.
  • Genius Cripple: Wheelchair confined due to a spine accident.
  • Giggling Villain: With a innocent-sounding girlish adult voice.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: After suffering near-fatal injuries when her sister pushed her down some stairs as a child, her father had her injected with Bias Factor (much like Soma's case) to save her life.
  • Mad Scientist: Unlike Dr. Sakaki, this is very much played straight.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Orchestrated Romeo's death by shutting down God Arc Soldiers to drive Julius across the Despair Event Horizon and convince him to support her research plans (in disguise of her ulterior motive.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Like Johannes, she plans to create the new singularity to devour the entire planet after Shio left Earth for the moon. Unlike Johannes, her plan doesn't involve humanity surviving.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: She is obsessed with dolls since she was a child, and this carries over into adulthood. Only this time, that includes considering everyone around her as dolls.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Killed her own father using the prototype God Arc Soldier No.0 when he becomes a threat for stopping her human experiments.
  • Walking Spoiler
  • Woman in Black: She dresses in clothes of a Victorian era funeral with a veil.

    The Aragami 

The monsters of the God Eater universe.

A species of monsters that first appeared around 20 years ago and quickly laid waste to most life on Earth. Nobody knows their origin, though various hypotheses abound. They first appeared as single-celled organisms that rapidly consumed and imitated much of Earth's single-cellular life, until they began aggregating and working up to more complex life forms.
  • Animal Motifs: Most lines resemble an animal from the place they devoured, especially the bigger ones.
    • The Kongou line each look like monkeys.
    • The Vajra line look like Tigers.
    • The Chi-You line each look like a Winged Humanoid, a bird each.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Some boss-level Aragami count, but especially the Ouroboros line.
  • Badass Armfold: The Chi-You line of Aragami are always in this pose, preferring to let their arm-like wings do the fighting. The pose doesn't break even when they're stunned. Only when they die do their arms finally part.
  • Beam Spam: The Sariel Aragami series float around the battlefield and do this.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: The Aragami are technically collections of semi-independent "Oracle" cells. Each one has a core cluster of Oracle cells that controls the others through chemical signals, keeping the aggregate together and allowing the cells to differentiate into other roles. Genetically every Oracle cell ever sampled is identical to any other, but they can absorb and reuse any material they consume, allowing the Aragami to vary wildly in phenotype.
  • Cowardly Boss: Every Boss. If the map allows it they will run.
    • Even if the spot they run to is only two yards away, taking them out of rage without you having to run so much would be a pain in the butt.
  • Degraded Boss: Not so much degraded as a bunch of weaker versions in the form of Golden Gboro-Gboros. They don't provide much challenge and can be easily killed with a few slashes/shots. Their only purpose is, when devoured, to yield materials usually retrieved on the field. Other difficult Aragami can become much easier to deal with as you (and your equipment) progress, though sometimes they get upgraded abilities or movesets to compensate for higher difficulties.
  • Eldritch Abomination: The Ouroboros line.
  • Enemy Summoner: Yen-Tzi in 2 will often summon Ogretail-like Aragami to assist it in combat.
  • Everything's Better with Monkeys: The Kongou line, and their name would fool no one.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Can even devour chunks of buildings, and in extreme cases may even turn on each other.
  • Gag Boobs: Amaterasu of the Ouroboros line has a pair that are probably larger then the main characters themselves and they generally just... bounce around when the main body moves.
  • Hero Killer: The Susano'o, a Borg Camlann-type Deusphage, is said to have grown stronger by devouring God Arcs (and presumably their wielders, too). Rumor also has it that they are manifestations of God Eaters-turned-Aragami.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Only Oracle Cells can kill other Oracle Cells, so by that adage Aragami can only be killed by other Aragami. That means you and your God Arc.
  • Horde of Alien Locusts: Though their exact origins are unknown.
  • Humanoid Abomination: The Arda Nova line.
  • I Just Want to Be Beautiful: Venus, a DLC Aragami, qualifies. "She" ended up as a fusion of several different Aragami, with the only human feature being a beautiful red-haired woman atop the mishmash.
  • It Can Think: A minor example, but the Chi-You line of Aragami have a tendency to use the "bring it" pose (popularized by The Matrix) when they spot you.
  • Kamehamehadoken: The Chi-you's energy-based projectile attacks, especially the charged-up final blast of the combo.
  • Lightning Bruiser: The Vajra Line stands out the most in regards to this, but the big winner is the Dyaus Pita. It has incredible power, equally incredible defense, and in Rage Mode it could give The Flash a tough time in a race.
    • And then came the Hannibal line. Fast, flashy and hits with the force and fury of the fires they wield, there are reasons they're called Nargacuga 2.0.
  • Living Weapon: The Quadriga line is like a cross between an enraged elephant, a bull, and a living, walking tank/missile silo.
  • Macross Missile Massacre: The Quadriga Aragami fights with this tactic, and you can (more or less) send these same Missiles right back at it via Devouring it and using its Aragami bullet.
  • The Medic: Nyx-Alpha in 2 will recover its fellow Aragami.
  • Mighty Glacier: God Eater 2 has Demiurgos, which is slow, but hard-hitting and can only damaged effectively by attacking its head or when its legs are exposed.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Every Aragami incorporates various animal (and some human) features - and in some cases the features of vehicles.
  • Mook: The Ogretail, Zygote and Cocoon Maiden lines. Ogretails are your standard bipedal tailed beasts, Zygotes are floating eyes, and Cocoon Maidens are stationary, missile-firing Iron Maiden-lookalikes.
  • Never Smile at a Crocodile: The Gboro-Gboro line is like a crocodile-thing with no hind legs and with fins where forelegs should be, a bigger, spiked tail, and a huge horn on its head. Also, Ukonvasara in 2.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Nyx-Alpha in 2 is completely immune to blade attacks.
  • Olympus Mons: The Deusphages, Aragami named after real-world deities and considered god-level monsters. Susano'o (Borg Camlann), Tsukuyomi (Arda Nova), Poseidon (Quadriga), Zeus (Sariel), Hera (Chi-You), and Amaterasu (Ouroboros). Though not explicitly stated, the Hannibal line may also count, being a species introduced only in the Burst storyline.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: The Hannibal line, as well as the DLC-exclusive Caligula.
  • Panthera Awesome: The Vajra line. Vajra, Prithvi Mata and Dyaus Pita are essentially leonine monstrosities (except the latter two had humanoid faces).
  • Pillar of Light: Either this or Killer Sat but the Chi-You will make you remember of certain SNK Boss which happens to use this as a desesperation move
  • Pretty Butterflies: The Sariel line. Also Yen-Tzi in 2, despite being derived from Chi-You line.
  • Scary Scorpions: The Borg Camlann line is a cross of this and the standard medieval knight.
  • Turns Red: All Aragami (except Ogretails, Zygotes and Cocoon Maidens) tend to become "enraged" after several hits or after a body part has been "unbound" (when you destroy its armor plating).
  • Walking Tank: The Quadriga takes the form of a tank, complete with treads going up its four legs (that it never uses).
  • Wave Motion Gun: The Ouroboros and Arda Nova type Aragami will use these often. And so can you when you devour them.
  • Winged Humanoid: The Chi-You line.
  • Zerg Rush: Some later missions feature swarms of Mook-level Aragami, though the Protagonist is only required to defeat a certain number (usually thirty).
