Characters: Kiwiblitz

The Heroes

Steffi Frohlich/Blitz

The main character of Kiwi Blitz, a 14 year old girl who decides to become a superhero out of boredom, at least at first. She pilots the Kiwibot, a mecha designed for robot arena combat, and she is also trained in taekwondo (though not to the extent as her friend Ben). She is very enthusiastic and excitable, and has a habit of rushing into danger, but actually thinks things through better than her allies give her credit for.

Tropes

Benzene Contracter/Donner

Steffi's childhood friend and unofficial sidekick. A pretty serious boy and fan of all things military. Pretty skilled at taekwondo and good with computers. He is pretty regularly exasperated by Steffi's actions and seems to have taken it upon himself to keep her out of trouble. Up to actually joining her as the costumed superhero, Donner, in Track 16.

Tropes

  • Badass Normal: Took down Gear on his own with nothing but his martial arts skills, and did it with one move.
    • Badass in a Nice Suit: What he was wearing when he fought Gear, due to having just come from his birthday party. He took the jacket off though.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: Ben is the one who feeds Steffi tactical info, is generally portrayed as smarter, and is a better fighter than her hand to hand. But he sticks to the sidelines for the most part since he doesn't entirely approve of Steffi's actions.
  • Mission Control: He takes this role for Steffi for the first few Tracks, but later moves takes to the field himself.
  • Multicolored Hair: Ben's bangs are lighter than the rest of his hair.
  • Only Sane Man: It typically falls to him to keep Steffi's antics in check.
  • Relationship Upgrade: At the end of Track 14, he becomes Steffi's boyfriend.
  • Secret Identity: As Donner.

42

A Japanese robot sent piece-by-piece to Steffi's father from his roboticist friend in order to avoid anti-robot laws. Since she was just sitting around the house Steffi press-ganged her into helping out with the super heroics.

Tropes

Heinrich Frohlich

Steffi's father and owner of the Mecha Machen design and manufacturing company. Kickstarts the plot by giving Steffi the Kiwibot on her 14th birthday. Fully supports his daughter's decision to become a superhero, until she gets herself into actual danger that is. Not a particularly responsible father.

Tropes

The Cops

Reed Bahia

A policeman in the NYPD, the son of the current Police Chief. Out of all the police shown he is the only one who seems to really want to stand up to the various supercriminals running around causing trouble, and he is always quick to point out that while Steffi is a vigilante, it's the people she's ''fighting against'' who are the real villains. Serves as Steffi's one and only ally in the police. He loses his arm in a fight with Gear, and has it replaced with a robotic prosthetic bristling with weaponry.

Tropes

Chief Bahia

A seasoned NYPD veteran, the chief of police and father of Reed. He does not approve of Blitz's antics.

Tropes

Cho

Reed's sarcastic partner.

Tropes

Celesta Jones/Cebus

A spunky young recruit. Becomes Reed's girlfriend. In reality, she is an Alter mole codenamed Cebus.

Tropes

Flores and Barnes

Two cops who are rarely seen apart. Flores is the girl, and Barnes the guy.

Tropes

  • Badass Beard: Barnes sports a badass-looking goatee.
  • Good Cop/Bad Cop: When interrogating Natrix, Flores plays the bad cop to Barnes' good cop. Jones wonders if Flores is relieving stress.
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: Barnes.
  • Ship Tease: During a break-in to reclaim the impounded Kiwi-Bot, Blitz and Raccoon knock them out and put them into a cute pose next to each other. 42 later suggests that Barnes has romantic feelings for Flores.
  • Sleep Cute: After being knocked out by Blitz and Raccoon, they are put into such a pose for giggles.
  • Those Two Guys

The Villains

The Raccoon/Chandra Makisig

A costumed thief who steals on the behalf of a mysterious organization. Definitely a criminal, but seems to be a decent kid for the most part. After Steffi's Kiwibot was captured by the police, she blackmailed The Raccoon into helping her steal it back.

Tropes

Gear

A Cyborg supervillain who seems motivated purely by boredom and sadism. Robs a bank specifically so that she lure out Blitz for a fight. Half of her body is cybernetic.

Tropes

Natrix

A snake-like criminal who is a member of The Raccoon's organization.

Tropes

Private Barkley

A mentally unstable soldier who stole a mecha and went on a bit of a rampage. Steffi's first challenge as Blitz.
