Nepgear/Purple Sister

Voiced by: Yui Horie (Japanese), Christine Marie Cabanos (English)

  • Badass Armfold: This is how Keiji Inafune appears to Nepgear.
  • Badass Bookworm
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her Lilac mkII Processor does this.
  • Beehive Barrier: Her Panzer Blade attack causes her enemies to generate one for every swing, just so she can shatter them all in the process of beating them to death.
  • Big Word Shout: During her Slash Wave attack.
  • Bishie Sparkle: Gets these a few times, notably when Uni asks to join the party.
  • Catch Phrase: Her oddly-constructed "What the goodness?!"
  • Clueless Chick Magnet: Pretty much every other girl on the team aside from Neptune express or generally indicate interest in her, either to be their little sister or romantically. She usually doesn't even notice, or assumes they're joking.
  • Combination Attack: The only one who is a required party member for a majority of the combination attacks, the total number (including the DLC power up) being at 10'.
  • Duel Boss: With a few characters.
  • Evil Feels Good: A borderline example, when she runs Linda through with the Demon Sword.
    Nepgear: "I should have done this a long time ago."
  • Expy: Of Neptune
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: Anything happens, she'll almost always say "What the goodness!"
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When you summon Keiji Inafune, his eyes glow before Nepgear delivers the final blow.
  • Hair Decorations
  • Intimate Healing: IF decides to go this route to snap her out of it and get her to go HDD. Compa voices disappointment that she wasn't the one who got to get "Lovey-Dovey" with Nepgear.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Tries to take on a dragon at the behest of "Chika" and almost gets owned by it before being rescued by Cave.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Both she and Nisa think she's a Jack of All Stats when she's really this. If you play her right, she's a good tank, dishes out damage harder than the rest, is a required character to all of the Combination Attacks,mand yet the Irony? She's a Game Breaker if you place her as a support role because she's the only one who can get rid of the Damage Cap allowing other characters to damage enemies beyond 9999.
  • Lonely at the Top: In the Conquest Ending. By the end, she has killed all the other goddesses and united the world under her rule, and those of her friends who are still alive leave her after Arfoire is defeated.
    Nepgear: "This is the dark path that I've chosen to walk alone."
  • Mix-and-Match Weapon: As Purple Sister, she wields a rifle with a sword attached to it.
  • Nice Girl: Nepgear is a relatively friendly and kind-hearted girl at heart, and willing to help others in need.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: In the Conquest End, she thinks of using the demonic sword to vanquish Arfoire, and ends up becoming the only goddess left in the entire world. Unfortunately, the world is then headed towards destruction, for if there is no competition, there can be no progress. CFW Arfoire even outright tells that to Nepgear.
  • Purple Is Powerful
  • Shout-Out: Most of her skill is based on Temjin's weapons.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: While Purple Heart has a black-dominant costume, Purple Sister has a white dominant costume.
  • Stripperific: Her powered-up costume.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Starts off as meek, shy, and timid, unlike her older sister. By the end of the game, she becomes the next goddess of Planeptune.
  • Villain Protagonist: Becomes one in the Conquest End. She's not happy about it.
  • Wave Motion Gun: Her Beam Rifle as Nepgear and the Inafune Beam.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Gets called out by other people on her actions in the Conquest End.
  • Wrench Wench
  • Younger Than They Look: She happens to be the younger sister of Neptune, yet she appears older than Neptune.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Same as her sister.

Uni/Black Sister

Voiced by: Eri Kitamura (Japanese), Sarah Williams (English)

  • A-Cup Angst: Brought up after Nepgear suggests that Uni pads outside of HDD.
  • BFG: Her weapon of choice.
    • Small Girl, Big Gun
    • Some of her guns imply that she's actually just making them look larger than they really are.
  • Bare Your Midriff: In her power-up Black Sister version.
  • Boring but Practical: Charley Horse! does no damage nor does it help guard break, but it will lower even a boss's avoidance so someone else can actually start doing damage.
  • Breast Expansion: Inverted. Turning into Black Sister causes her to flatten, and this actually gets brought up by Nepgear at one point.
  • Camera Abuse: One of her skills kicks the camera and shuts it off. It's used to lower the accuracy of enemies.
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Hair Decorations
  • Love Confession: In her character info quotes, and surprisingly short and simple.
    "I love you Nepgear."
  • Mega Twintails
  • Named Weapons: After you kill Brave The Hard for the final time (that is, in the True Ending), Brave powers up her Black Sister weapon and gives her the Brave Cannon.
  • Stripperific: As Black Sister.
  • Tsundere: Towards Nepgear.

General Maker Tropes

  • Moe Anthropomorphism: Of video game producers.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: In most settings, these characters would be considered fairly powerful. Only problem is, they're working with a bunch of Physical Gods. IF is the only one who seems bothered by this though, so she takes to training alone to keep up with Nepgear. After Nepgear catches her doing this, IF bans her from any personal training until she's a Super Soldier.

Kei Jinguji

Voiced by: Yuko Sanpei (Japanese)

  • Ambiguous Gender: Among fans as they thought she was a boy but considering how males are notorious in this series this brought a lot of confusion. She is confirmed female.
  • Berserk Button: Breaking promises.
  • Bifauxnen
  • Boyish Short Hair: It really adds to her boyish look.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Very snarky and actual rivals IF in this department, much to her annoyance.
  • The Spock:
    Kei: I'd rather not waste our precious time discussing the mythical creations known as emotions.
    Mina: That's not a good answer. If you want her to open up to you, you need to open up to her.
    Kei: Adult conversations consist entirely of valid logic and efficient syntax.
  • Lady Looks Likea Dude: Everyone thought she was the first male to ever be introduced in the series but surprisingly, shes all woman.
  • Olderthan They Look: Despite looking like a child, she is said to be older than her appearance. Her actual age has not yet been disclosed.
  • Promotedto Playable: In rebirth 2 along with the other oracles.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Notice a pattern yet?
  • Royal Rapier: Not royalty but shares this fighting style with Noire in Rebirth 2.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: A lot of people that she was a he for understandable reasons.
  • Workaholic

    Exclusive to Re;Birth2 


Voiced by: Kanae Ito (Japanese)
In an ironic twist, RED was a character that appeared in the first game but was absent until Re;Birth 2. This Lesbian Harem Seeker takes NISA's place in the plot. And helps the party battle Underling in the depths of the Virtua Forest

  • Anime Chinese Girl: dresses the part at least, and the company she represents is a subsidiary to a Chinese firm.
  • Killer Yo-Yo: Her weapon of choice is a YoYo
  • Harem Seeker: This time focusing on the CPU Candidates.
  • Irony: mk2 was the start of her long absence from the franchise. A steak that was only ended in...the remake of that game.
  • Meaningful Name: And Meaningful Acronym as well. R: Her Color Motif specifically her R-shaped red hair. E: Her Cup size and D: her pet Dragon
  • Red-Headed Hero: Well she ain't called RED for nothing.
