    CPUs and CPU Candidates 
The Goddesses of Gamindustri. The CPUs and Nepgear were sent to battle Arfoire 3 years ago, only to lose to her and wind up trapped for the next few years. Nepgear being the only one that was freed from this must get the help of the other CPU Candidates to free the CPUs still trapped in the Gameindustri Graveyard.

General CPU & CPU Candidate Tropes

Nepgear/Purple Sister

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

The Protagonist of the Game. Three years ago, she along with her sister and the other CP Us were trapped in the Gameindustri Graveyard. She was only able to escape with Compa and IF's aid, after which they set out on a journey to find the other CPU Candidates and released the CPUs. She can also choose to sacrifice the other Goddesses to gain an Unholy Holy Sword or in Re;Birth 2, instead get a more powerful weapon for less (read: no) sacrifices. She represents the Game Gear, an old SEGA platform which had two Sonic the Hedgehog games.

  • 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, and 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)

Noire's Sister. She initially comes to the Guild look for something to do when they meet the party, who are unaware of her identity as Lastation's CPU candidate, nor knowing of Nepgear's identity as Planeptune's Candidate. She represents the Playstation Portable.

Ram/White Sister

Voiced by: Kaori Ishihara (Japanese), Shelby Lindley (English)

One of Blanc's twin sisters, and thus one of Lowee's CPU Candidates. She is more blunt and outgoing than her twin, Rom. She meets the party after they rescue Rom from Underling, however she is initially untrusting of Nepgear. Together, they both represent the Nintendo DS.

Rom/White Sister

Voiced by: Yui Ogura (Japanese) , Carrie Keranen (English)

Ram's older twin, and Blanc's yonger sister. She is rather shy around others. She meets the party in Lowee after getting Kidnapped by Underling, like her sister. However like (and because of) her sister, she didn't trust Nepgear at first until she helped her find her missing pen. Together, Ram and Rom are the Nintendo DS incarnate.

These adventurers are the personifications of various Game companies. They are willing to help Nepgear in her quest to resue the CPUs and stop Arfoire.

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.


Voiced by: Mayuko Takahashi (Japanese), Lauren Landa (English)

A Cool, Calm and Collected girl that rescues the party from a Uriah Gambit set off by Underling, who disguised herself as Leanbox's oracle. She is a member of Leanbox's SMD organization.

Magic the Hard / CFW Magic

Voiced by: Chiaki Takahashi (Japanese), Laura Post (English)

Arfoire's most loyal follower, and one to match the CPUs head on. Like Arfoire, she taps intot he power of Shres and used them to defeat and trap them, cementing the cult as the dominant religion. She the personification of Fanboyism

Judge the Hard / CFW Judge

Voiced by: Kenjiro Tsuda (Japanese), Kyle Hebert (English)

After Magic defeated the CPUs, she sent Judge to watch over them. He is ruthless in battle and proved to be a difficult obstacle for Nepgear, IF and Compa, cutting their plans to free the other CPUs short...for now. He is the personifation of people who gave up after their games flopped.

Trick the Hard / CFW Trick

Voiced by: Yoji Ueda (Japanese), Derek Stephen Prince (English), Josh Grelle (English Anime)

Voiced by: Junko Minagawa (Japanese) , Morgan-Berry (English)

Not much there is to say about her, other than she is an Underling. She confronts the party at every turn hoping to destroy the mascots before they empower Nepgear. Like Arfoire and Magic, she also uses ASIC's shares to her advantage.

     Exclusive to Re;Birth 2 


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.

  • 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 streak that was only ended in...the remake of that game.
