The Dulcinea Effect: Hopelessly devoted towards "his" Sayaka. To the point that when Marushina disguised herself as Sayaka to shoot him, he fell for it three times in a row. He was drunk that time though. During S1#9, it actually helps motivate him to transform IN THE REAL WORLD.
In season 2, since Sayaka has moved away he seems to have transferred more of his affection toward Aoi-tan, to the point that it's the source of his Super Mode.
Face Death with Dignity: After realizing that he's doomed at the end of 2-12, he tells everyone to keep watching Sentai as he is killed mid-sentence.
Finishing Move: Akiba Underground Culture Attacknote (While using the Bouken Scooper)
Munya Slashnote (As Super Akiba Red while using MMZ-02: Munya Munya Zubaan)
MunyuMoe Crushernote (A Pistol Whip with the MunyuMoe ZubaKyuun)
Genre Savvy: He's such a huge Sentai buff that he can relate event flags from various series to what's actually happening to the Akibarangers, and predict what happens next. Turns out this wasn't mere coincidence.
For the first 5 minutes of S1#7 she retains her Gothic Loli cosplay, then she dresses as Satomi from Z-Cune Aoi. At the end of S1#7, she's dressed as a Samurai (in particular with Date Masamune's crescent helm, but none of his eyepatch)
S1#9 has her dressed up as a bee girl and later a bunny girl.
Of special note, we see her as herself briefly in season 1's #7, #9 and #11 and in season 2's #2 and #4.
Deceased Parents Are the Best: In S1#5, we meet her mother, who taught her everything about cosplay. She even gets to transform into Akiba Yellow herself! When the fight is over, however, she is no where to be found. Yumeria then reveals to the team that she had been dead for several years.
Happily Married: Gotten married while she was away before she returned in S2#2. Nobuo didn't find out until S2#4.
Verbal Tic: Depending on the costume - adding "nya"s to her dialogue as a catgirl, ending all her sentences with a combination of "pi", "pe", and "po" as an alien in S1#5, and so on.
In S1#7, as a part of her Satomi cosplay, she usually starts sentences with "[insert adverb here] speaking" (ex. Tactically, Philosophically, Unofficially etc. speaking). Then they are all dropped when we see her as herself in S1#9.
Vocal Dissonance: She dropped her Animal-Eared Headband in S1#2. Her voice changed. Drastically. Though apparently, that isn't her "real" voice, as when we see her as herself she talks normally.
Yaoi Fangirl: As demonstrated in S1#3 when she sees Akiba Red and the Monster of the Week being a tad too close. This actually caused them trouble as her Yaoi Fangirl delusions conflicted with Akiba Red's heroic delusions.
Takuma Tsuzuki/Akiba Red II | Live Actor: Shinpei Takagi
A half-Japanese Interpol agent who replaces Nobuo as the latter is called to serve in the Pentagon. He's also Hiroyo's half brother.
Luna Iwashimizu/Akiba Blue II | Live Actress: Shione Sawada
A teen who wants to be an idol.
Aloof Ally: Was this after #3, she wanted to focus on being an idol and the team being unofficial means she won't get discovered. She was this way until #5.
Becoming the Mask: At first only joining the Akibaranger to boost her idol career, but after 2-11, when the only boost available was to be a villain due to Malshina's screwing, she finally grew to value the friendship she had with the Akibarangers and decided to embrace being a 'heroine' instead of furthering her career.
Ripple-Effect-Proof Memory: The only main character who doesn't have it. Whenever the villains alter history, she remembers the new version of events. As of episode 6, however, she has gained it and is now immune.
Retcon: She's still Aoi's voice (or at least involved) as she mentioned that she was frustrated after "they wrapped up production" and can't wait for the "surprises" in the new movie. However, due to the Alternate Universe and Doctor Z not being there, her status as Aoi's voice actress is not yet revealed to the Akibarangers.
The Pollyanna: When Marushina invades the cafe, Kozukozu takes up arms against her and gets beat down for all her troubles... yet some time later, she's right back to dancing for her customers with a smile on her face as if nothing happened.
Blatantly Evil Guerrilla Marketing Firm B /Delusion Empire
The enemy organization from the Delusional World the Akibarangers fight whose goal is to change Akihabara.
Doctor Z Real Name: Takehiro Tsuzuki | Live Actor: Kazuki Yao
Hiroyo's biological father, scientist, the original designer of Z-cune Aoi, and true leader of the organization.
Abusive Parent: Part of his revenge plan involves causing his daughter to lose her voice and career simply because she voices a character he hates. He also does not treat Maruseena or the Chief Clerks, many of which are his own creations, well at all.
Freudian Excuse: His turn to villainy was because he disliked Moe and Yuri Genre that he made sure none of that is in his Aoi designs, attempting a Darker and Edgier feel. This got him fired and his insistence to keep that mindset despite the demographics that prefer Moe made him hard to keep a job as an animator and had to return to being a scientist and once he discovers the delusion world, he decided to use that as a vengeance for those are not of his mindset.
Knight of Cerebus: While Maruseena was no lightweight, this guy is a total monster who tries to ruin his own daughter's career and destroy a community solely for a petty grudge. At least Maruseena was designed to be a villain, this guy is human.
Evil Plan: After breaking into the real world, she realized that her forces could follow her with help of the Akibarangers' delusion power, so she began to help them grow stronger and even set up fights with the sole purpose of weakening the barrier between the real world and the delusion world, going as far as retrieving their transformation devices for the heroes. When they realized they had been Unwitting Pawns, the damage was already done.
Rule of Three: Invoked by having Delu-Knight trigger three flags of defeat, but that's to show how they no longer work that way.
Spell My Name with an S: There seems to be some confusion about how to spell her name. Malsina, Malshiina, Maruseena, ŠNa? Not even this page is sure.
Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: In Season 2, she's usually less pleased and more annoyed with General 2's 'Sentai Villain Fanboying' antics, and occasionally her attempts to destroy Otaku culture would clash with General 2's modus operandi of 'having his villainous delusions'
She is now more powerful than Saburo Hatte. Oh, boy.
Villainous Friendship: General Pain has a one-sided Type II with her. He goes out of his way to get her into the spirit of things, and is relatively upbeat around her. However, Malshina is completely indifferent to (If not outright uncomfortable around) him, more comfortable to abuse the luxurious freedoms he grants her instead of caring about whether or not he succeeds.
Episodes 2-10 and 2-11 reverse the Trope. There never was a Friendship at all. Malshina was simply waiting for the chance to lower Pain's guard so she could steal his secrets for herself. After taking the secrets, she conquered every Sentai, warping the Akibas' world so that the Sentai series focused on her killing off the teams; effectively taking their place.
Voice Changeling: She also has the ability to disguise her voice, which she usually uses to pretend to be a producer from Toei calling the Akibarangers.
Xanatos Gambit: All of season 2 is a gambit on her part, starting when she entered Saburo Hatte's world in order to manipulate him into allowing a second season. After that, every time the Akibarangers used their Penultimate Powers, it gave her an opening to enter the world of past official sentai, allowing her to defeat the official teams until "reality" was re-written into one where every sentai series is about her killing off the heroes.
Yaoi Fangirl: She enjoys the fight between the Chief Clerk in S1#3 and Akiba Red perhaps a bit too much.
Otaku: Until Malshina takes that quality away from him. Unfortunately, the backlash greatly harms Saburo Hatte.
Retcon: Most of his monsters cause these, altering how certain things (Like animes and Sentai) are seen from the real world. The only ones immune to these effects are the characters from Season 1.
It Makes Sense in Context: Episode #2-10 reveals that Pain Isn't an actual character, but an avatar created from Hatte Saburo's subconcious. Being a "portion" of Hatte, (for lack of a better term) it can be presumed he had some of his Author power, thus the Retcons.
Sailor Earth: Creates his monsters deliberately in the style of past Sentai villain teams.
Took a Level in Badass: As of Episode 7, while he is still as much of a loser as Nobuo, he now knows he can rewrite reality, knows the Akibarangers' identities, and can enter the delusion world.
Villainous Friendship: One-sided Type II. Early in the season, he kept going out of his way to get Malshina into the spirit of things, expressing sadness when she inevitably ignored him.
As of episode 2-9, however, this seems to have devolved into a Type IV, as he has no qualms about trading up Dragons once he saw how capable the MoTW was against the Akibas; going so far as to trap Malshina in an acryllic box, so he could "admire her aesthetic qualities." Of course, the new Dragon was defeated, so one can only wonder how she and Pain will interact from here on out.
A manifestation of the creators of the show and true villain behind all the series's past events. For some reason, he's hospitalized inbetween seasons and was manipulated by Malshina into creating Season 2 so she could get revenge on what he did.
Author Powers: Naturally, since they run the show, they can alter details at will, including characters' personalities. Becoming aware of the fourth wall seems to allow the characters to reverse changes made to their personalities, though.
Even Bigger Bad: In Season 1. Surprisingly subverted in Season 2, where Malshina is the villain.
Creator In-Joke: "Saburo Hatte" is actually the collective pen name for the Toei anime and tokusatsu writers.
Your Mind Makes It Real: Episodes #2-10 and #2-11 reveal that General Pain was never really a meant-to-be-established character, but instead a byproduct of Saburo's subconcious created as a defense mechanism against Malshina. (Thereby connecting him somewhat to the Akiba-verse, making Pain an extension of Hatte. Yes, it's a Mind Screw.) Now that Malshina has all but lobotimized Pain, Hatte is feeling the effects in the "Real" world, and is implied at the end of #2-10 to be on the verge of death. Malshina does not take it well.
