God Arc: New-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 MC and Aki Tamashiro for the female MC. The anime characterises him as Lenka Utsugi.
  • Brother-Sister Incest: In the anime Lenka and his adopted sister Iroha were in love with each other.
  • The Cameo: Aki in The Spiral Fate and The 2nd Break manga.
  • Canon Name: Yuu Kannagi.
  • 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.
  • Deuteragonist: Yuu's primary role in light novel/manga adaptations, except God Eater 2: Undercover, the only title where he is the protagonist.
  • 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 Burst, although:
  • Heartbroken Badass: In the anime Lenka is this after the deaths of his Iroha and his adoptive parents. To the point of pursuing vengeance against the Aragami even at the cost of his own life.
  • 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.
  • Hot-Blooded: Lenka, in fairly stark contrast to Yuu Kannagi and even the different personalities of the in-game voices are relatively tame.
  • 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.
  • Not Blood Siblings: In the anime, Lenka and Iroha are this due in part to Lenka being an adopted child.
  • 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.
  • Nice Guy: Yuu's personality in the light novel/manga adaptations and generally how the protagonist acts in cutscenes. The various in-game lines tend to have him/her as generally pretty worried about the others' well-being, too, regardless of what the rest of your chosen voice makes your character come across as, personality-wise.
  • 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".
    • Thanks to Pachi-Slot God Eater, the female protagonist finally has a canon name: "Aki Tamashiro".
  • 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.
  • Shirtless Scene: Yuu in a few chapters of God Eater - The Summer Wars when at the beach. Also possible to pull off in-game as well with the swimwear for the male 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.
  • 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.

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 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 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.
  • The Leader: Of the 1st Unit.
  • The Men First: He has one standing order: "Don't die."
  • The Mentor
  • 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.
  • 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.

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.
  • Ambiguously Brown: His father's fair skin and his mother's dark skin average out to a nice tan shade.
  • Child Soldiers: He's been a God Eater since he was 12 years of old.
  • Defrosting Ice King
  • Fingerless Gloves
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Since he was injected with the Bias Factor while his mother was still pregnant, he is technically half-Aragami.
  • I Work Alone: He grows out of this. 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.
  • 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: 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: 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
  • 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
  • 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.

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
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 Arc: New-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.
  • 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.

God Arc: New-Type Short Blade/Sniper Gun
One of the three Burst exclusive characters and a New-Type God Eater, together with Annette and Federico. 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
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Just like Shio. And fittingly so, since he too is, at least in a sense, a human-form Aragami.

He greatly improved overtime however, and it shows when, after the Defense Unit Character Episodes where the other Defense Unit members sans Kanon are promoted to Captain, Sakaki promotes him to Commander of the Far East Branches entire defense force.
