Main Teams

    Team Luffy 

Monkey D. Luffy

Series: One Piece
Voiced by: Mayumi Tanaka

With the stretchy powers of the Gum-Gum Fruit, Luffy tries to reach his dream of becoming King of the Pirates!
  • Big Eater: Much of his drive comes from wanting to eat.
  • Cursed with Awesome: The Devil Fruit powers, which take away their user's ability to be able to act while submerged in water.
  • Ki Attacks: Uses the Haki to power up his attacks. He'll instantly transition into this form for more damage when he further powers up his attacks during his Gear Second state.
  • Lightning Bruiser: His attacks come out pretty fast, and he also hits like a truck.
    • Difficult but Awesome: However, in Luffy's case, while he has lots of damage, his stamina usage is on an extreme level (can gain it up to fully instantly but not past 100%, and can use up quite a bit of it for his specials). Thus, learning to manage his resources is key to unleashing his maximum potential.
  • Man Child: He's quite simple in his mindset outside of a serious fight.
  • Nice Hat: His greatest treasure is his straw hat, given to him by his father-figure, the Red-Haired Pirate Shanks.
    • Said hat also used to belong to Shanks' former captain, Gold Roger.
  • Playing with Fire: His Gum-Gum Red Hawk (actually having its kanji read literally as "Fire Pistol"), where he uses his Haki to cause an ignition on his fist for a fiery-stretch punch. This is done by charging up his Gum-Gum Rifle while he's already boosted up by his Haki.
  • Power Palms: His direction+circle special, Gum-Gum Bazooka (done with both palms horizontal of each other). He also gets a running start beforehand.
    • Also done during the finisher of his Gum-Gum Gatling, as mentioned above in the same manner.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: His signature Gum-Gum Gatling (the kanji being literally read as "Gun Battering"), done with neutral circle. Should one button mash it more, he'll instantly transition into Gear Second's Jet Gatling, and end it with a pseudo-Jet Bazooka (he actually yells "CANNON!"). Doing this again while already in Gear Second will make the final Gum-Gum Cannon get laced in Haki instead.
    • In the air, it turns into Gum-Gum Stamp Gatling instead, done with his feet diagonally to the ground for a bit with the same effects as the ground version.
  • Rubber Man: Luffy's Gum-Gum Devil Fruit ability allows him to stretch himself, which he incorporates into his fighting style.
  • Super Mode: Actually has this in layers:
    • Whenever he charges up his stamina gauge, he never enters a stamina charge animation. He always activates Gear Second and instantly fills it up fully to 100% (but at a cost, it can't be used in close succession and his gauge CANNOT exceed that said 100% stamina). Gear Second also automatically activates whenever he adds more button taps to his Gatling (to turn it into Gum-Gum Jet Gatling) or charges up his Gum-Gum Rifle (turning it into Gum-Gum Jet Rifle).
      • After that, if he does the same thing with his Gum-Gum Gatling Gun and Rifle while in Gear Second before it wears off, he can gain another boost in power by covering himself in Haki. He does so by changing his Gatling Gun into a Haki-laced Gum-Gum Cannon, or charging up his Gum-Gum Jet Rifle into a Gum-Gum Elephant Gun. This state will also eventually wear off as well overtime, as well as whenever he does Gum-Gum Red Hawk.
  • This Is a Drill: His Gum-Gum Rifle (literally read as "Rotating Bullet" with its kanji), where he screws his fist as he stretches it back for a powerful drilling punch. This is his R1+Circle, which can be charged up to make him enter Gear Second for Jet Rifle, then Haki mode for Elephant Gun or Red Hawk in that respective order of continuous usage.
  • Worthy Opponent: In the game, he's Toriko's.

Portgas D. Ace

Series: One Piece
Voiced by: Toshio Furukawa

Luffy's older blood brother with the powers of the Flare Flare Fruit, and the commander of Captain Whitebeard's 2nd squad!

He is also the son of Gol D. Roger AKA Gold Roger.
  • Cursed with Awesome: The Devil Fruit powers, which take away their user's ability to be able to act while submerged in water.
  • Elemental Punch: His signature Hiken (Fire Fist), which also makes up his epithet of "Fire-Fist Ace". This is direction+circle special, and it can home in on opponents quite well (but doesn't have a range that one expects to be good as a trade-off).
  • Finger Gun: His Higan (Fire Gun) neutral circle special.
  • Nice Hat: A common trait for many from the Family of D. in One Piece.
  • Pillar of Fire: His Hibashira (Fire Pillar), first prepped up by his Enkai (Flame Commandment).
  • Playing with Fire: He ate a Logia type Devil Fruit, the Mera Mera Fruit (Flare Flare Fruit).
  • Sphere of Destruction: His Limit Break, Dai Enkai: Entei (Great Flame Commandment: Flame Emperor).

Tatsumi Oga (with Baby Beel)

Series: Beelzebub
Voiced by: Katsuyuki Konishi (Oga) and Miyuki Sawashiro (Beel)

A violent and selfish delinquent, now tasked with caring for the Demon Lord's infant son!

Hiei

Series: YuYu Hakusho
Voiced by: Nobuyuki Hiyama

A demon of the Makai who's mastery of sword and fist alike earned him a violent reputation, but he's now one of the Spirit Detective's trusting allies with a solid hidden resolve!
  • Death of a Thousand Cuts: His Kousoku Giri (High-Speed Cutter) special (direction + circle), where he dashes forward in iconic fashion, to cut his opponent up with 16 slashes as he did with Seiryuu in his home series. However, he's not invincible during this, meaning he can easily dive into attacks on accident while also being easy to punish if it's blocked and/or it misses.
  • Flash Step: A ton of his moves and his main specialty (his jumping strong attack and his aforementioned direction + circle). His Just/Perfect Guard is also this, and he outright states that it's an afterimage in his quote.
    • Also has one for his midair strong attack, and is one of the few characters with one of those types of attacks.
  • Flaming Sword: His Jaou Ensatsu Ken (Wicked King Immolation Sword) AKA Sword of Darkness Flame has quite a bit of reach with said flame on it.
    • A majority of his stronger sword-based moves, despite not being as visible on the sword itself (such as his R1+Square ranged/area attack and his R1+Triangle Guard Break attack) involves his connecting target to be set on fire, only the fire is pure black. Slight traces of darkness can be slightly seen on Hiei's katana amongst the visible air-cuts, but some moves like his aforementioned Kousoku Giri don't actually produce the effect (but it will have a Technicolor Fire effect explained below).
      • This also works as a mechanic. By using his special stamina action that reveals his Jagan (R1 + X), performing his Jaou Ensatsu Ken (neutral circle) or absorbing the dragon from his Limit Break, only then he is able to stamina charge normally for a while. But of course not only that, he is able to have an overall damage boost with more range on all of his sword-based moves by powering them up with his demonic fire. Not to mention he can also lower his opponents' stamina bars on blocked-hit by a larger amount than usual. Needless to say, it will soon wear off in all of those cases.
  • Fragile Speedster/Glass Cannon: He's pretty fast and has ton of agile moves with solid offense, but he's not that strong unless you're able to make good use of his power up states and/or his extended combos. He also often has trouble with stamina since he charges it quite slowly, even though regenerating it up to 100% by revealing his Jagan Eye is simple enough.
  • Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons: His Jaou Ensatsu Kokuryuuha (Wicked King Immolation Black Dragon Wave) AKA Dragon of Darkness Flame, where he undoes his arm belts to unleash a black dragon of pure demon fire that storms around the area in front of him, juggling enemies and causing havoc.
  • Master Swordsman: Despite being mostly a hand-to-hand-based fighter and a very solid one in his home series, Hiei's liking for swordsmanship is no slouch at all, as he occasionally draws it out in several of his moves.
  • Mercy Invincibility: Hiei actually has a personal one whenever he's knocked down without being able to recover/tech on time. Just like in his home series, his state where he is powered up from the absorbed fire dragon from his ultimate will eventually leave Hiei too tired to be able to stand up and will force him to hibernate for a while (but ONLY if there's enough time for the Victory Burst left if Hiei managed to absorb the dragon prior). During this, Hiei while being a sitting duck, CANNOT be hit by anything until he manages to get back up.
    • However, he'll also enter this hibernation state for his K.O. animation if he's of course, K.O.ed during this power up state before his Victory Burst ends.
  • Noble Demon: Literally. He despite his brutality still has his own rules and his more soft side deep down.
  • Playing with Fire: Hiei's a fire demon. He can use both normal and demon fire, but the former isn't used in this game.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He's a bit short for his size in comparison to others. But boy, ever since being on Yusuke's side, can he smack someone around as well as slice them up with style. Should we also mention his control over fire?
    • His size is apparent in that during Hiei's basic weak attack string, he mostly for the first two inputs, leaps at his opponent somewhat just to wail at them (this pseudo-airborne state is what causes him to move VERY far forward when attacking like so).
  • Rapid Fire Elemental Fisticuffs: His Jaou Ensatsu Rengoku Shou (Wicked King Immolation Purgatory Scorch) AKA Fists of Mortal Flame. Done as his R1 + Circle.
    • Button Mashing: Unlike most examples, this move heavily averts this trope; the full series of hits automatically occur when any of the initial hits connect.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: This is barring his Jagan however, which is a blue eye instead.
  • Spin Attack: His R1+Square ranged/area attack.
  • Sugar and Ice Personality: Quite the cold and brutal guy on the outside, but has his intentions and a soft spot for others on the inside.
  • Super Mode: When Hiei can absorb the black dragon from his Kokuryuuha, he can enter a stronger version of his usual powered up state as mentioned above. Like most Super Modes, this can only be done during his Victory Burst (since all Limit Breaks can only be done from there anyways).
    • The slight deviation from the rest of the examples here is that Hiei's Super Mode can only be accessed during his Limit Break, and is not usually the other way around.
  • Technicolor Fire: His Jaou Ensatsu Ken by default and the rest of his katana-based moves when powered-up by his special stamina action and his neutral circle are greenish black.
    • However, his aforementioned Rengoku Shou is a bit more purple-black, while Kokuryuuha instead is pure black with some small shades of purple when he absorbs it.
  • Third Eye: His Jagan (Evil Eye). He can even remove the bandage covering it to power himself up briefly via his stamina charge action as mentioned above (and it gives him a small stamina boost). Also revealed when he absorbs his Kokuryuuha.
  • Trash Talk: With Sasuke.
    Hiei: Can you see that? Way different from your little sparks. These are the flames of a demon. Don't underestimate the power of the Jagan Eye!
    Sasuke: Compared to my Sharingan, your Jagan Eye is useless.

    Team Toriko 

Toriko

Series: Toriko
Voiced by: Ryotaro Okiayu


Zebra

Series: Toriko
Voiced by: Kenji Matsuda


  • Big Eater: He ate twenty-six species into extinction. His stamina charge also works just like Toriko's.
  • Blood Knight: Just like Toriko, only he's a lot more sinister.
  • Cracking Up: Cracks his neck in his battle intro.
  • Death from Above: His Limit Break, Meteor Noise.
  • Deflector Shields: His Oto no Kabe (Wall of Sound).
  • Long-Range Fighter/Trap Master: Despite being a typical Mighty Glacier, Zebra's playstyle mainly revolves around keeping his foes out rather than closing in on them. A ton of his projectiles and his Oto no Kabe are excellent for zoning tools. However, one needs to also properly manage his stamina.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: A majority of his attacks are sound-based, as well as having a literal mouth cannon to top it off.
  • Nightmare Face: The left side of his cheek has been torn off, showing his teeth.
  • Rated M for Manly: Along with Toriko, he's quite ripped.
  • Sociopathic Hero: A lot of his quotes are quite violent and have some dark undertones.

Son Gokuu

Series: Dragon Ball
Voiced by: Masako Nozawa

A Saiyan that was sent to destroy Earth, and has been raised on it and now its greatest savior!
  • Anime Hair: He was born with it, and it even was the codifier for non-elite Saiyans.
  • Blood Knight: Of the rare heroic variety. He's glad to pick a good fight and fight for justice and Earth's safety all at once.
  • Combined Energy Attack: The Genki Dama (Spirit Bomb). Can also accidentally hit allies with no damage.
  • Dash Attack: His version like Vegeta's and Frieza's is more unique. His has two extra inputs by default, and if done during the Triangle finisher to his weak combo, he can dash after them and pummel them with his dash attack (which instead turns into a six-input rush during this).
    • Also has an akin version with his direction + circle special, Meteor Smash: a blazing teleporting rush of attacks ending in a slamming axe handle.
  • Golden Super Mode: Super Saiyan. Like Vegeta, he can access it when he fully charges up his stamina gauge to 200%. But anything that empties it completely it will cause him to revert back, and said mode can be accessed outside of Victory Burst unlike others (as well as lasting only until he has his stamina drained).
    • Also transforms into the state when his Spirit Bomb connects on a target, just to put more extra energy through it.
  • Human Alien: One of the Saiyans.
  • Kamehame Hadouken: Duh! Well, the first part at least. Done as his neutral circle.

Secondary Teams

    Team Momotaro 

Momotarou Tsurugi

Voiced by: Hideyuki Hori


  • Alternate Character Reading: Some of his moves are spoken out in a reading more akin to Chinese than Japanese (kun'yomi and/or on'yomi).
  • Badass Longcoat: He tosses it away upon reaching 200% stamina however.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: His eyebrows do stand out a bit due to how thick they are.
  • Blow You Away: He can swing his sword hard enough to create tornadoes. A notable example is his Hishou Kakusuiken Ougi: Rin Senpuu (Concealed Hearing Crane Spindle Sword Secret Skill: Threshold Whirlwind) direction+circle special making him spin on his sword via a handstanding sword-plant.
  • The Coats Are Off: Can ditch his longcoat mid-battle, when he reaches 200% stamina.
  • Dual Wielding: Uses an extra katana out of nowhere in reverse grip for his R1+Square area attack.
  • Hachimaki: A signature of his. Supposedly can even use it for his neutral circle, Kikou Touhou: Koufu Kensaikou (Qigong Fighting Law: Stiff Cloth Fist Smashing Merit).
  • Iaijutsu Practitioner: His R1+Circle special, Mugen Ittou-Ryuu: Shingan Ken (Infinity One Blade-Style: Heart's Eye Sword). Circle has to be pressed once again at anytime while Momotarou has his sword sheathed so he can perform the slash, since he has his eyes closed during the stance.
  • Japanese Delinquents: His series is the Trope Codifier for a reason, but he's more honorable/disciplined than thuggish compared to what most would expect.
  • Meaningful Name: His surname literally means "sword/saber" in Japanese.
  • Megaton Punch: Uses a few punches in some of his moves, like for his weak attack string ender and his Guard Break.
  • Mighty Glacier: He's a bit slow on his moves, but he hits pretty damn hard on several of his moves, even with his basic weak attack combos.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Wields one as his main weapon, and even uses the pommel of it in his basic weak combo to demonstrate his mastery over it (most likely a nod to his Shishi Tourouken, lit. Four Limbs Flatiron Clarity Sword).
  • Rated M for Manly: One of the more muscular characters in the cast.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": The long vowel on the ending part of his name. Most forms of media ignore it, but the "ro" part can be written with an extra "u" however.
  • Sword Beam: A large majority of his moves. The aforementioned Shingan Ken is the standard example.
    • His Limit Break, Wanfuuji Chouhiougi: Shinkifuukon (King Tiger Temple Super Concealed Secret Skill: Sunrise Qi/Ki Tiger Soul) fires a tiger-shaped blast forward.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Doesn't wear a shirt under his chest-baring longcoat, and is shown in full when he reaches 200% stamina on charge.

Kenshin Himura

Voiced by Mayo Suzukaze

Known as one of the legendary Hitokiri of the Meiji Revolution, but has since reformed into a solid fighter with a new vow to protect with no bloodshed!
  • Animal Motifs: The Hiten Mitsurugi-Ryuu has heavy emphasis on the dragon.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: His Kuzuryuusen (Nine-Headed Dragon Flash), which does a quick-yet-powerful nine strikes at once at the opponent's nine-vital spots. It also, just like its source of origin, cannot be blocked or dodged head-on, but it can at least be logically sidestepped only if you dash around it far and quick enough.
  • The Atoner
  • Badass Normal: While he is a Master Swordsman, Kenshin stands out amongst the playable cast, most of whom either has supernatural abilities or run on Rule of Funny.
  • Bishōnen
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass/Comically Serious: Much more of a notable badass, but even he has his foolish moments. His signature "oro" verbal tic in his usual goofy tone is used whenever the player using him gets a game over screen.
  • Death from Above: His Ryuutsuisen (Dragon Hammer Flash), either done from the air, or from the rise of his Ryuushousen.
  • Diagonal Cut: His fighting style's ougi, the Amakakeru Ryuu no Hirameki (Flash of the Heavenly Soaring Dragon), and an impossibly fast one at that due to the unique requirements compared all battoujutsu-based moves. The R1+Circle version can allow him to counter any attack that comes his way or be guaranteed to slash any opponent that comes near after his delay in the stance.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: His Douryuusen (Earth/Land Dragon Flash) as his R1+Square ranged attack, which makes Kenshin strike his sword along the ground to send ground-based debris at his opponent's direction.
  • Good Is Not Nice
  • The Fettered: As per usual. Kenshin will never kill anyone at all hence he wields a sakabatou and still can pack a nasty punch with such a limitation and vow alike. The sound effects whenever he hits someone with it aren't even typical slicing sounds.
  • Iaijutsu Practitioner: The Trope Codifier, being known as the "Battousai" in the past. His main fighting style, the Hiten Mitsurugi-Ryuu (Flying Heaven Govern Sword-Style) also focuses heavily on battoujutsu.
  • Implausible Fencing Powers: Capable of slicing a building-sized Getsuga Tenshou in the opening.
  • Japanese Pronouns: "Sessha". Or "ore" if he happens to revert to his original self, which thankfully doesn't happen in this game.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Wields a sakabatou (inverted edge blade) styled like a katana. As mentioned above, all the sound effects with the sword are typical battering sounds as opposed to slicing sounds.
  • Master Swordsman: He wasn't known as Battousai the Manslayer for nothing, and he still packs a punch even with a blade on the wrong side of his sword.
  • Red Baron: Battousai the Manslayer. Previously of course.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran
  • Slashes That Suck: His Limit Break, Nidangamae Amakakeru Ryuu no Hirameki (Two-Stage Stance Flash of the Heavenly Soaring Dragon). This version causes the very first slash made from the sheer speed of his sword-draw to cut the air into a void, which can cause opponents to stand still while Kenshin throws out the second slash.
  • Shoryuken: The two variations of his Ryuushousen (Dragon Soaring Flash), done either from an upward chin slash, or from his Ryuutsuisen.
  • Spin Attack: His Ryuukansen (Dragon Coiling Flash) series, done mainly as his neutral circle special. With the standard variation of course (which isn't seen often); as well as the Kogarashi (Wintry Wind; a more singular turning slash, and isn't seen in this game), Tsumuji (Whirl; Kenshin spirals like a torpedo forward and is also done as his dash attack) and Arashi (Storm/Tempest; forward somersaulting slash), with all three of those done much like his five-hit combo against Shishio.
  • Stance System: By using R1+Triangle, Kenshin can transition into his battoujutsu stance (which sadly doesn't allow him to have a Guard Break in his movelist) where he can dash all around at a much faster speed and is able to use certain battoujutsu moves unique to said stance. During it however, he can't block, use his Kuzuryuusen or move around with mechanics such as dashes like his in his normal stance (and he also moves mainly in 4 directions, so his dashing is a lot harder to control). Also, getting hit will cause him to exit the stance either way.
  • Warrior Therapist
  • Verbal Tic: "Oro" and "de gozaru".

Kenshirou

Voiced by: Katsuyuki Konishi


    Team Sasuke 

Sasuke Uchiha

Series: Naruto
Voiced by: Noriaki Sugiyama

A former ninja of the Hidden Leaf Village and the last of the Uchiha clan, Sasuke sets out to achieve his goals for vengeance and almost nothing can stop him!
  • Bow and Sword, in Accord: His Susano'o (Ought-Skill Helper).
  • Breath Weapon: His classic Katon: Goukakyuu no Jutsu (Fire Release: Great Fireball Jutsu). Can also be done in midair and homes in slowly on opponents (and he also has a backward direction+circle version that acts as a non-homing anti-air).
  • Fighting Spirit: Again, his Susano'o. Its ribs appear whenever Sasuke's blocking attacks and also appears during some of his basic attacks.
  • Flechette Storm: His midair strong attack involves tossing a double storm of kunai with a surprising amount of stun and accuracy (only if he's in range and facing towards them properly though).
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: Was good, then evil, then turned out to be good, then super evil, now good again. Still evil in the game, though.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Wields a chokutou (straight blade) ever since his alliance with Orochimaru.
  • Megaton Punch: Done with his Susano'o skeleton fist during some of his combo finishers, his jumping weak attack and for his Guard Break.
  • Playing with Fire: As per Uchiha clan tradition, Sasuke is well-versed in fire-based techniques.
  • Power Palm Dash Attack: His signature Chidori for one of his specials (direction+circle), which also stuns the opponent.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His Sharingan (Copy Ring Eye) and its evolved form Mangekyou Sharingan (Kaleidoscope Copy Ring Eye).
  • Shock and Awe: Thanks to Kakashi's training years ago. Sasuke has honed his Chidori (Thousand Birds) technique to various levels, such as being able to project it into an area-of-effect storm via Chidori Nagashi (Thousand Birds Stream; his R1+Square ranged/area attack).
  • Technicolor Fire: His usage of Amaterasu (Heavenly Shine) and later on Entou: Kagutsuchi (Flame Release: Added Tool Land Life) grants him very hot pure-black fires. The fire on his Susano'o is a shade of purple. The former enables him to continuously drain his target's stamina for as long as its held down, but he'll flinch in pain whenever he cancels it.
  • The Rival: To Naruto.

    Team Frieza 

Frieza

Series: Dragon Ball
Voiced by: Ryusei Nakao

The mighty emperor of space, Frieza controls the battle field with his overwhelming power!

Raoh

Voiced by: Tessho Genda


  • Dying Moment of Awesome: If Raoh would be the last K.O. in a match, he'll recreate his famous death scene, Famous Last Words and all.
    • However, via a cheap-shot it prolongs the time the K.O. sign pops up, so if his partner is quick enough depending on the situation, they may be able to score a K.O. (especially if it's the winning one) quickly enough to turn it around and/or claim victory.

    Team Akainu 

Akainu

Series: One Piece
Voiced by: Fumihiko Tachiki

Admiral Sakazuki, AKA Akainu, the strongest member of the Navy, joins the battle in the name of justice against pirates!
  • Animal Motifs: His epithet. Also visually apparent in his Inugami Guren (Dog Biting Crimson Lotus) special (input circle again during his Dai Funka).
    • And again, during his Meigou (Dark Hound) direction+circle special.
  • Anti-Villain: He's a marine, who fights pirates and other criminals. But still ruthless and merciless.
  • Coat Cape: He's not a One Piece character without it.
  • Cursed with Awesome: The Devil Fruit powers, which take away their user's ability to be able to act while submerged in water.
  • Death from Above: His Limit Break, Ryuusei Kazan (Meteor Volcano).
  • Ground Pound: His Bakuretsu Kazan (Exploding Volcano) R1+Circle special, which sends an explosion from underneath his target from nearly any distance. Interesting of note is that this is an attack that's only seen in his video game appearances.
  • Kill It with Fire: Most of his move set is based on firey magma attacks.
  • Knight Templar: The most extreme example from his home series.
  • Magma Man: Literally. His Devil Fruit allows him to turn himself into lava.
  • Megaton Elemental Punch: Forms elongated-magna-fists with his Dai Funka (Big Eruption) technique during his normal attacks, which can also be done mainly as his neutral circle special.
  • Villain Team-Up : With Makoto Shishio.

Makoto Shishio

Voiced by: Masanori Ikeda

The burning samurai who slashes his enemies with his crimson blade of flame, the vile Makoto Shishio is here to make his world from dream to reality!
  • Badass Normal: Much like Kenshin, he's not above having implausible abilities, but whereas other fighters can summon flames due to their own supernatural abilities, Shishio's flames come from his sword, which is soaked in the fat and oils of those he's killed, and requires some kind of friction to ignite.
  • Bandage Mummy: He's nearly completely covered in bandages.
  • Blade Spam: His signature Homura Dama (Blazing Soul), where he does a simple barrage of wide-covering flame slashes that have quite an area-of-effect.
  • Having a Blast: His Guren Kaina (Crimson Lotus Arm), where he grabs his opponent and uses his signature ability to light his gloved hand on fire.
  • Hot-Blooded: Quite literally. He lacks sweat glands to regulate his body after being burned alive, so his body is always burning hot. He actually dies of overheating in the manga.
  • Limit Break: His final attack never seen fully in the manga or anime, Kaguzuchi (Fire Bearing Spirit God). In this game, it's portrayed as a flaming cyclone on his sword that Shishio smashes the ground with.
  • Playing with Fire: Via his blade, the Mugenjin (Infinity Blade) absorbing human fats from his slain enemies.
  • Shoryuken: His Mugenjin Senkuu (Infinity Blade Whirling Air) is a Dash Attack example of this.
  • The Social Darwinist: For him, the strong are destined to live and the weak are destined to die. It is referenced in his battle-intro.
  • Villain Team-Up: With Akainu.

Sousuke Aizen

Series: Bleach
Voiced by: Shou Hayami


  • A God Am I: He aims to dethrone the Soul King and take his place.
  • Deflector Shields: Uses the Bakudo Spell Dankuu to hold off attacks, and functions the same as Zebra's Oto no Kabe only colored blue.
  • Evil Sorceror: Uses a wide variety of kidou, including Dankuu (Severing Air), Rikujoukourou (Six Bars Light Prison) and his iconic Kurohitsugi (Black Coffin).
    • Charged Attack: In his home series, kidou all have incantations which further increase their potency, while those skilled enough with the art can skip those said incantations. In Aizen's case in this game, charging up his special moves (which are all kidou) causes him to recite their incantations, though it leaves him pretty open when doing so.
  • Master of Illusion: His Zanpakutou, Kyouka Suigetsu (Mirror Flower Water Moon), can completely control the senses of those affected by it.
  • Pillar of Light: His Limit Break, where he uses the Hougyoku (Crumbling Orb) to power himself up via causing a purple dark pillar of energy to rise up and cause a shockwave around him. The effects seem to last throughout the rest of his Victory Burst.
  • Power Crystal: He has the Hougyoku, although he doesn't merge with it completely. He does use it to power himself up in his Limit Break though.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His given name is written as either "Sosuke", "Sousoke or "Sōsuke".
  • Villain Team-Up: With Madara Uchiha.

Medaka Kurokami

Series: Medaka Box
Voiced by: Aki Toyosaki

A powerful student council president, Medaka is better than everyone, a literal Ace. In addition of naturally being above average, Medaka also harbors a special ability that allows her copy a person's special power and personality, allowing her to master and use it at will. Her prodigious capabilities are the reason why the Mysterious Voice chose her to be one of the Examiners for J Stars Vs's Tournamanent.
  • Action Girl: Alongside Hancock and Arale in this game, at least as far as playable characters are concerned.
  • Boobs of Steel: Medaka sports a generously-sized chest and mostly fights using physical attacks.
  • Cleavage Window: Thanks to her attire, although Medaka's 3D character model also really emphasizes her breasts.
  • Gainaxing: Well of course; one of her attacks even has her jumping in place in preparation for a dash attack. Oddly enough, even the model of Absolute Cleavage that is Hancock jiggles less than Medaka does.

Gintoki Sakata

Gintoki voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita
Shinpachi Shimura voiced by: Daisuke Sakaguchi

He may be a lazy guy with a sweet tooth, but his wooden bokuto and his personal-yet-honest way of bushido isn't just for show!
  • Badass Normal: Unlike most of the other characters, Gin is pretty much just a normal, if talented, samurai. The more surreal moves he has are mostly references to how "meta" his show is.
  • Battle Aura: Does so just like how Seiya does it. "Burn! Whatever it is!" he says.
  • Combat Commentator: Shinpachi comments on whatever Gintoki does during the fight with speech bubbles. Fortunately, it doesn't obscure the player's view.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Uses a variety of bombs, rides on his scooter and even has a dirty trick with his Guard Break where he kicks his target in the thigh.
  • Dual Wielding: In his Limit Break, where he actually wields a real katana in tandem with his wooden one.
  • Heroic Albino
  • Interface Screw: For his R1 + circle special, if he hits you with the Lake Toya's soy sauce, your screen will be filled with soy sauce, blinding players for a few seconds. Of course, this doesn't work against A.I. opponents. It's also unblockable.
  • Kamehame Hadouken: A parody to Goku's Kamehameha as a nod to one of his actions in a certain episode.
    • Epic Fail: Sometimes the move will fail, but will still fire some sort of black wind.
  • No Fourth Wall: Fourth walls do not exist in Gintoki's vocabulary.
  • Shounen Hair: His perm in his home series was often mocked.
  • Sword Pointing: His intro.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: Whenever he throws the Justaway bombs, either at long-range distance (for one of his specials) or all around him via area-of-effect as he covers his ears (for his ranged/area attack with R1+Square).
  • Wooden Katanas Are Even Better: His mail-order bokuto.

Jonathan Joestar

Voiced by: Kazuyuki Okitsu

An English aristocrat and gentleman who's life was changed forever when he met the evil Dio Brando.

Joseph Joestar

Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita

The hot-headed but clever grandson of Jonathan Joestar who fought against the Pillar Men in 1939.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Often has very zany ways of combat in tandem with his Hamon, ranging from using a tommy gun for his neutral circle, clackers for his shield special, and a few other tools.
  • More Dakka: His neutral circle where he uses a tommy gun.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Seems to be a fool, but a lot of his tactics are often carefully planned despite being bizarre.

Kankichi Ryoutsu

Series: Kochikame
Voiced by La Salle Ishii

A quirky cop that protects the town on his bike Chidori!

Killua Zoldyck

Voiced by: Mariya Ise

A trained son from a family of professional killers, Killua as one of Gon's best friends seeks a newfound path!
  • Absurdly Sharp Claws: A majority of his moves. And it's his nails more likely.
  • Badass Adorable: He's badass and has an adorable side.
  • Death from Above: His Narukami/Rakurai (Thunderbolt), done as his neutral circle special or during his Limit Break.
  • Elemental Punch Across The Room: His Shippuu Jinrai (Hurricane Swift Thunder) is more of an elemental elbow-strike, and it can only be done if his opponent draws near him during his direction+circle or if circle is released before charging it up fully to perform Denkou Sekka (Voltaic-Flint Speed).
    • Super Mode: The Kanmuru/Shinsoku (Godspeed). Activating it by fully charging up direction+circle to Denkou Sekka, fully executing a Tag-Team Melee or using his Limit Break (hit or miss) allows him to enter a mode that gives him more damage and lowers his stamina costs on his area attack, guard break, sidesteps and specials. His dash also uses up no stamina in this mode, but like all super modes it wears off soon via set duration.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: They're a shade of purple however.
  • Killer Yo-Yo: His weapon of choice in this game. Primary done as his ranged attack (R1+Square), and is one of the only ranged attacks in the game that has extra inputs.
  • Power Palms: His Izutsushi/Raishou (Thunder Palm), which in this game is one of his combo finishers as opposed to a special.
  • Shock and Awe: His Hatsu (Emission) allows him to transform his aura into electricity, thanks to being constantly tortured since childhood.
  • Speed Blitz: His Limit Break, Hiraishin (Flying Thunder Quake). He then finishes with a super-powered Narukami for good measure. This puts him into his Kanmuru mode if used, hit or miss.
  • Stealth Expert: His Nen Control: Zetsu (Suppress) special is able to conceal him from sight for a short time or before he starts to attack. He can still dash or stamina charge of course.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Is the youngest playable character alongside Gon.
  • White Sheep: Bonus point for having white hair among his brothers.

Kusuo Saiki

Voiced by: Shintaro Asanuma

A guy who has amazing ESP superpowers that annoy him to no end!
  • Blessed with Suck: He has so many powers, but isn't that good at using most of them.
  • Comically Invincible Hero: In his series, he's invincible to the point where his everyday life is no longer challenging. The manga revolves around the hilarious problems that arise from this.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: His R1 + circle special, where he causes rocks to orbit around him; he can either throw them forward, or hold on to them so they can flinch his foe upon contact, making it very difficult to assault Saiki without projectiles.
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: His psychic powers make it hard for him to control his physical strength.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Throughout the story mode, he laments being unable to return to his peaceful, ordinary life.
  • Psychic Powers: Has almost every psychic power you can imagine.
  • The Stoic: A straitlaced teen who's constantly snarking at the other characters' antics.
  • Stoic Spectacles: Wears tinted glasses that go along with his stoic demeanor.

Series: Tottemo! Luckyman
Voiced by: Mayumi Tanaka

Meisuke "Nube" Nueno

Voiced by: Ryotaro Okiayu


  • Badass Teacher: His main job is teaching students and he cares deeply for them. So deeply in fact, he is more than willing to give his life to protect his students from demons.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: His eyebrows are rather pronounced.
  • Guest Star Party Member: When the main character's companions are possessed by demons in story mode, Nube joins the main character to help exorcise them. He leaves once the issue's resolved.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: His ultimate.
  • Paper Master: Can surround himself in a scroll to act as a barrier, or can wrap an opponent in one to trap them in place for a while for his neutral circle. Also uses it to smack at someone for his area attack.
  • Red Left Hand: He has a demonic left hand, the Oni no Te (Hand of the Oni), which he utilizes in combat. Uses it in name for his direction + circle to snatch a portion of his foe(s)'s soul, forcing them into a crumple state and snatching away a portion of their stamina.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His nickname is either "Nube", "Nuubee" or "Nūbē" via the kana; the localized version goes for the very latter somehow.

Taro Yamada

Voiced by: Motoko Kumai


  • Assist Character: Summons an oni and an old woman to attack nearby opponents.
  • Gasshole: Can fart as a double jump.
  • Gonk: Even his "cute" face is affect by this. He's very nearly always drooling and having snot coming out of his nose.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": "Taro", "Tarou" or "Tarō" in kana/romaji.
  • Unexpected Character: Let's be honest, can you name 5 people overseas who've heard of him?
  • Use Your Head: He can use a charging headbutt as an attack, or as the final part of his Limit Break.

Vegeta

Series: Dragon Ball
Voiced by: Ryo Horikawa

The prince of Saiyans. He first appeared as an enemy of Goku, but has since then become his greatest ally and rival alike!
  • Anime Hair: An iconic example out of many, but not as bad as Goku's.
  • Beam Spam: His neutral circle special, the signature Renzoku Enerugii Dan (Continuous Energy Bullets). Never lost his touch for that kind of move for a second.
    • He has a slower variation with his R1+Square (which is not an invincible area attack) and his midair strong attack, where he can fire two successive small blasts per input. Pressing Triangle for the former and Square for the latter causes him to fire a stronger blast with awkward tracking that acts as his Tag-Team Launcher Move.
  • Blood Knight: More of the anti-hero variety.
  • Charged Attack: His normal Strong Attack is a Megaton Punch variation, where if charged up fully, he'll warp to his target before unleashing it. Unlike other Strong Attacks it has no combos that branch off of it.
    • However, that changes in Super Saiyan mode, where he can press Triangle a few more times to beat them around upon landing the charged version of it.
  • Dash Attack: His version like Goku and Frieza's is more unique. His has two extra inputs by default, and if done during the Triangle finisher to his weak combo (as the third and fourth input only), he can dash after them and pummel them with his dash attack (which instead turns into a six-input rush during this).
  • Diving Kick: More of a diving knee though; Vegeta's midair weak attack acts as this.
  • Forehead of Doom: It's almost memetic.
  • Golden Super Mode: Super Saiyan. Like Goku, he can access it when he fully charges up his stamina gauge to 200%. But anything that empties it completely it will cause him to revert back, and said mode can be accessed outside of Victory Burst unlike others (as well as lasting only until he has his stamina drained).
  • Having a Blast: His direction+circle special, the Big Bang Attack.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: Was bad, then turned good, then bad, then good onwards. He's good in the game, though, as per usual.
  • Hereditary Hairstyle: His hair style is the same as his father's.
  • Human Alien: As one of the Saiyans.
  • Limit Break: His signature Final Flash. Vegeta always turns into Super Saiyan for this move, either from turning into one if he's in base form, or if he's already in the mode. Either version has the same start-up time before the cinematic.
  • Long-Range Fighter: While Vegeta has decent close-combat capabilities, his real strengths lie in being able to have a strong far-ranged game with his beam spams and being a powerful back-line fighter. However, he needs to manage his stamina and his projectiles don't have the best tracking at certain angles.
  • Noble Demon: More or less.
  • The Rival: To Goku.
  • Smug Super: He does indeed have his pride. It wouldn't be Vegeta if not so.
  • Sphere of Power: His R1+Circle special, Bakuhatsuha (Explosion Wave). Also acts as a launcher for a Tag-Team Melee.
