Lightning Legend: Daigo no Daibouken is a Fighting Game with quite a number of characters, both playable and NPC ones. Here's a list of those characters, and their related tropes.
Voiced by: Mariko KoudaThe main hero of the story, a 14-years old Human hailing from Tyoda Village, in Azumakyou Province.He's the descendant of the legendary Hero who sealed away the Demon King Dragless. He practices martial arts ever since he's very young, under the tough training of his father Taiki, both in preparation against Dragless's eventual resurrection and for becoming stronger. When one day, his father sensed that Dragless's resurrection was close, he set out on the quest to destroy the evil monster once and for all.He likes boasting from time to time, but he's a gentle boy by nature. Due to his effeminate looks, people often mistake him for a girl, flustering him to no end. Loves soccer.
Tropes associated with Daigo Raioh:
Voiced by: Yuri ShiratoriA 12-years old Snow Girl (a branch of the Fairy race) from Zehgo Village, in Niikata Province.The daughter of Hiroo Shirogane, the current champion of the national fighting tournament "King Of Japone". She's a girl with magic powers enabling her to give life to snowmen she creates, and to feel the aura of monsters. When her father falls ill due to the poisonous aura of a great demon (actually Dragless, but she doesn't know about him at that time), she sets out in order to restore peace and save her father.A cheerful and extremely kind little girl, she's actually afraid of monsters and feels her strength may not be sufficient to destroy them, but she takes upon herself and gives her very best. She doesn't like being treated like a child. Also a big fan of the Hero of Justice Adolf, she'd love to get an autograph from him.
Tropes associated with Yuki Shirogane:
Voiced by: Junko IwaoA 16-years old Human girl from Tohda Village, in Sakitama Province.She was abandoned as a baby, and taken in and raised by the kind old mayor of the village. She loves him like a father, and it's him who, at the young age of 5, gave her the love of feudal plays (a thing he loves himself) and hero shows, as well as her desire of becoming an Ally of Justice, by taking her to a feudal theatrical play.Years later, she became an accomplished martial artist, and now she sets out on the search of the town's Sakidama (= Luck Soul) Jewel, a magical gem powering an energy-made bridge vital to crossing the town's large river, that has been stolen by someone (later revealed as one of Dragless' Mooks).A cute tomboy, she has a strong sense of justice and will go to anyone needing help. She's a bit clumsy though and tends to jump to conclusions, taking some people as evildoers and leading to misunderstandings. She means well though and makes excuses when the misunderstanding is cleared.
Tropes associated with Mayu Uzaka:
Voiced by: Yuri ShiratoriA 8-years old creature belonging to the legendary Mukumuku race (a race of creatures looking like a furball rabbit), born and living in Syosetu Mountain, located in Dekkaidō.The eldest child of a family of 4 Mukumuku (father, mother, and little sister), they live underground. One day, Mokomoko decides to go on an excursion. Little does it knows its simple excursion would ultimately lead it to fight against the Demon King Dragless...A playful creature curious of its surroundings, but very emotional. Hit it or offend it, and you'll be in for a world of hurt, as it's very strong, and unusually fast for a creature of its size and built. It gets along very well with Yuki.

Voiced by: Ryōtarō OkiayuA 19-years old male of the Seima (= Holy-Monster) race, half-breed beings born from a Human, and a Monster with great powers, coming from Izumon Village, in Shimanen Province.Since there are very few individuals in existence of that powerful race that's the Holy-Monster, Jigokuryuu, the boss of the village's big crime syndicate, upon discovering Rankerk's ancestry and powers, kills Rankerk's Human mother and raises him all while hiding the truth about it, making him the syndicate's top assassin and protector.When Rankerk discovers his mother didn't abandon him, but was murdered by the person he held in high esteem, he patiently waited for the right moment for his revenge. One day, he sets his plan in motion, announces to the syndicate he quits, and kills every one of them on the spot. In his dying breath, Jigokuryuu ominously gives Rankerk mysterious words about his mother and his ancestry. Puzzled, Rankerk sets out on a trip for the search of his origins, hoping to find an answer in battling everyone on his way...The lone wolf Anti-Hero by excellence, he's a man of few words and very severe in both appearance and personality. Speaks with a rude speech pattern to anyone, and craves for battle, seeking strong opponents to test his own limits.
