Characters: Namco × Capcom
    open/close all folders 

    Agents of Shinra 

Tropes shared between the two are:

Reiji Arisu (Voiced by Kazuhiko Inoue)

Protagonist of Namco X Capcom, Reiji Arisu is an agent of Shinra (no, not that Shinra), an organization that investigates paranormal activities. A specialist on Fluxes, portals that open from one world to another, Reiji's a skilled fighter using multiple swords, a shotgun and a revolver simultaneously. Ten years before Namco × Capcom, his father, another Shinra agent, was killed while fighting Saya; the scar on his forehead was from that battle. Since then, Reiji has harbored a strong grudge against Saya. In contrast to his partner Xiamou, he's very serious-minded and never hot-headed.

Xiaomu (Voiced by Omi Minami)

A 765 year-old "sagefox", Xiaomu is another Shinra agent, who previously worked alongside Reiji's father. Energetic, silly and an all-around nice person, Xiaomu raised the young Reiji after his father was killed ten years ago.

    Agents of Ouma 

Saya (Voiced by Ai Orikasa)

Main antagonist of Namco X Capcom, Saya is an agent of Ouma, a rival organization of Shinra seeking to bring chaos to the world. Like Xiaomu, Saya is a "werefox". She has a history with the Arisu family.

Dokugozu & Dokumezu

Two previously unnamed minions of Saya, Dokumezu and Dokugozu are based on "Gozu" and "Mezu", the Japanese mythological guardians of hell with an ox and horse's head, respectively.
  • Ascended Extra: Neither of them had any characterization, let alone voices, in Namco X Capcom and were simply no different than the mooks of the game. They reappear in Endless Frontier with distinct personalities.
  • The Brute
  • Those Two Bad Guys
  • The Voiceless: Only in Namco X Capcom; averted in Endless Frontier and Project X Zone


    From Xenosaga 


Shion and M.O.M.O.

    From Tekken 

Kazuya Mishima

Heihachi Mishima

  • Anime Hair: The only hair he has left is just as farcical as that of his son and grandson. This must be part of Mishima genetics, not the Devil Gene.
  • Archnemesis Dad: Is this to Kazuya.
  • Badass: There's a reason he's the only Mishima who's been in every game of his series.
  • Black Sheep: The most overtly evil member of his entire clan, with Kazuya at a very close second.
  • Cool Old Guy: Okay, he's a dick, but he can be pretty funny and definitely Bad Ass.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive
  • Determinator: Is absolutely fearless against any opposition
  • Evil Laugh: He also does this the most out of all the Mishimas.
  • Evil Old Folks
  • Faux Affably Evil
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has an X-shaped scar across his chest, but a hero he is not.
  • Greed
  • Horned Hairdo
  • It Is Pronounced Tro PAY: His name is pronounced "Hey"-hachi, not "High"-hachi.
  • Jerkass: Ultimately everything the Tekken series is and has been is a result of Heihachi's heartlessness and zeal. He sealed his father away under the Hon-Maru compound to seize the Zaibatsu, he threw his son off a cliff to "make him stronger" and later in his life (upon learning of his survival), held the first King of Iron Fist Tournament to draw him close. Then 22 years later he brings his grandson into the third tournament (also one he hosted) to use as living bait for Ogre and then shoots him when things don't go the way he wants. Despite the fact that Kazuya and Jin are bitter enemies too, Heihachi has definitely earned every bit of contempt from both.
  • Psycho Electro
  • Rated M for Manly
  • Smug Snake: Despite his plans once again not going the way he wants them to.
  • Token Evil Teammate

Jin Kazama

  • Anime Hair: Basically, Kazuya with bangs.
  • Badass: Oh, yes!
    • Badass Family: Although the entirety of Jin's bloodline is all messed up, you gotta admit that they are still pretty awesome.
  • Bishōnen
  • Blessed with Suck: A "child of destiny"? A more accurate descriptor would be a "child of suck". He seems to have inherited no spiritual powers from Jun, instead being plagued with the cursed blood of the Mishimas. At the very least, Jun's influence tempers his demonic tendencies to a certain degree.
  • Big Screwed-Up Family: The fourth generation of a family that just doesn't quite see eye-to-eye... to say the least.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Calls out both father and grandpa.
  • The Corruption: The Devil Gene is slowly eating away at Jin.
  • Heroic Bastard
  • He Who Fights Monsters
  • Humble Hero: Where most other characters meet the party with introductions that at the very least indicate what they do and what they're capable of, he simply tells them his name and country of origin.
  • I Hate You, Devil Dad: Has an intense hatred of Kazuya, from whom he inherited the Devil Gene he so desperately fights to get rid of. In this game, he's pretty much out to beat the hell out of Kazuya.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Jin isn't regarded as Tekken's most attractive male for nothing.
  • Perpetual Frowner
  • The Stoic
  • Sugar and Ice Personality: Only a handful of characters see Jin's deredere side, and they are not in this game.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Devil Jin.
  • Tall, Dark and Handsome

    From Klonoa 



  • Anti-Hero / Good Is Not Nice / Nominal Hero
  • Bash Brothers: With Klonoa.
  • Berserk Button: Janga's face, for understandable reasons.
  • Bounty Hunter
  • Delinquent: Complete with Cluster F-Bomb, assuming the fan translators have it correct.
  • Disappeared Dad
    • You Killed My Father: "You" being Janga. Naturally, Guntz DESPISES Janga because of this and is still hunting him down for revenge. He eventually gets it.
  • Fanboy: Of guns, though he seems to be cooler about it here than in his game.
  • Goggles Do Nothing
  • Hair-Trigger Temper
  • Jerkass Façade / Loner-Turned-Friend: Has already formed his True Companions bond with Klonoa here, but generally acts aloof and rude towards the others, with bounty and adventure being his primary motivations. However, once he slowly comes to see the gravity of the situation he contemplates turning tail in order to stay alive. However, with his father's killer among the main plot's recurring bad guys and with the good guys' propensity to have his back, common enemies and unpaid debts become his reason for sticking around. He initially has complete tunnel vision about revenge on Janga for killing Butz, flying into a rage anytime the cat shows up, but gradually becomes more patient about his goal, loyal to the party, and immersed in the actual quest to stop the Ouma plot. Ultimately Guntz develops into a Knight in Sour Armor, and even after accomplishing his revenge to the applause of the Unknown Soldiers he earnestly stays with the crew and helps them sees the real mission through to the end.
  • Punny Name: Guntz. Guess what his weapons are.
  • Roaring Rampageof Revenge: Wants to hunt down Janga at all costs, but the story's main plot and Janga's knack for escape are both constantly in his way. Ironically, it's after he mellows out, gains perspective, and becomes a true hero over time that he's able to finally kill the bastard.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Manly Man to Klonoa's Sensitive Guy.
  • Shipper on Deck: In a rude way, for Stan and Rutee, as he accuses them of being on a date within seconds of meeting them.
  • Spell My Name with an S: Guntz/Gantz.
  • True Companions: Is this with Klonoa. Arguably becomes this to the others as well.




    From Shadow Land 


    From Soul Series 

Mitsurugi Heishirö

  • Arrogant Samurai: In appearance.
    • Ronin: He actually refused to take a Samurai position when offered, preferring a mercenary lifestyle so he could find a Worthy Opponent.
  • Badass
    • Badass Beard
    • Badass Longrobe: Some incarnations of him sport them.
    • Badass Normal: Mitsurugi, so far as we can tell, has no special powers and no connection to either spirit sword. The katana he uses is perfectly ordinary metal. He's made up for this by being so skilled entire armies of normal men, including ones with guns can't beat him, and he's considered a worthy adversary and ally to the cast of his game, which is mostly filled with blatantly supernatural or otherwise fantastical characters both good and bad.
  • Blood Knight
  • Cluster F-Bomb: If a certain GameFAQs fan translation is to be believed, he's the patron saint of this next to Guntz and Janga. At the very least, they use an extremely crass and rude way of speaking.
  • Duel to the Death: All challenges are this for both Mitsurugi and those he challenges.
  • Expy: Modeled on Toshiro Mifune, who played iconic Samurai roles in the Akira Kurosawa films Rashomon, Throne of Blood, and Seven Samurai. Also could be considered based on Miyamoto Musashi, who was played by Toshiro Mifune, so...
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Played straight enough, but also subverted with his desire to capture the Soul Edge for its power.note 
  • Meaningful Name: "Mitsurugi" literally means "divine sword."
  • One-Man Army: He goes as far as to purposefully side with outnumbered sides so he has more people to fight.
  • Samurai Ponytail: Mitsurugi has the second, scruffier type of hair.
  • The Rival / Worthy Opponent: Taki.

Sakura Kasugano

    From Darkstalkers 


  • Absolute Cleavage: Very easy when her fur stripes barely even qualifies as coverage.
  • Action Dress Strip
  • Animal Motifs: Take a wild guess...
  • Bare Your Midriff: Felicia bares this and a LOT more.
  • Beauty Equals Goodness: A beautiful catwoman, and is possibly the kindest of the cast (though she does have more competition here than in her canon series).
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Just because she chose a pacifistic lifestyle, and just because her motto is always turning the other cheek, it doesn't means that she cannot punch your head off or cut you into ribbons if you piss her off enough.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: She has a bit of it. She is also fond of tossing horrible puns here and there.
  • Boobs of Steel
  • Cat Girl: She is the living embodiment.
  • Cat Folk
  • Cat Smile: Naturally.
  • Cute Little Fangs
  • Dance Battler: Felicia's both a fighter and an exotic dancer. She even has a show/routing called the "Battle Musical" with Wonder Momo.
  • Dumb Is Good: Constantly mistakes King for a fellow Darkstalker, specifically a werejaguar, despite King explaining to her repeatedly that he's a human Luchador wearing a jaguar mask.
  • Everything Is Better With Spinning: Many of her attacks are this.
  • Exposed to the Elements: Felicia can fight anywhere in her Fur Bikini, be it in the hot depths of the Makai, or the arctic regions of Canada/Japan.
  • Foreign Fanservice: She's an American and has the largest bust and hips of the Darkstalkers ladies.
  • For Happiness: Her outlook on life in a nutshell.
  • Friend to All Children: Felicia loves children and wishes to take care of those who cannot defend themselves.
  • Genki Girl: Her eccentricities sometimes approach Cloudcuckoolander levels.
  • Gratuitous English: When it's her turn: "Let's dance!"
  • Idol Singer: Has become this in the game's mixed universe, to the point Karin Kanzuki's family had a lot of money banking on her Battle Musical performance with Wonder Momo.
  • Kind Hearted Cat Lover
  • Meaningful Name: Felicia (and male name counterpart Felix) means happiness. Fits well for Felicia since she wishes to coexist with humans in peace. There's also the obvious similarity with "feline" too.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Competes with Morrigan on this.
  • Natural Weapon: Those claws of hers aren't just for show.
  • Nice Girl: Felicia is definitely the kindest of the Darkstalkers cast, and still seems to stand out in this game despite its giant ensemble cast containing plenty of real good folks.
  • Prehensile Tail
  • Rapunzel Hair: Long enough to reach past her waist and cover her bare butt. Its general shape is also reminiscent of a lion's mane, which adds to her feline image.
  • Running Gag: The real nature of her fur bikini.
    • Also, Felicia constantly calling King a fellow Darkstalker despite King explaining to her over and over that he isn't a Darkstalker, he's just a human Luchador wearing a jaguar mask. This long running gag also serves a a setup for another joke, as King (after complaining endless times about how dumb and dense Felicia can be) suddenly realizes that Felicia is a Darkstalker instead of a woman cosplaying as a cat as he believed all along.
  • Sexy Backless Outfit: Like with the rest of her body, Felicia bares her back wholly, then again, she's technically naked.
  • She-Fu: Combines fighting with her natural cat-grace and flexibility. Some of her moves even flash her butt.
  • She's Got Legs
  • Token Good Teammate: The most unambiguously good character from the Darkstalkers series and possibly overall in the game.
  • True Blue Femininity: Technically this as the only blue is in her hair.
  • Walking Swimsuit Scene: She walks about everywhere in her Fur Bikini.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Is tag team partners with Tekken's King. One of their tag supers is a double Shining Wizard.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She's got so much you could lose yourself in it.

Shturm Jr.

  • The Comically Serious: As evidenced by his response to Janga calling him a pain in the ass.
    "A pain in the ass? Such things are irrelevant in battle."
  • Verbal Tic: "-de gozaru".

Mike Haggar

    From Lost Worlds 

Unknown Soldiers 1P & 2P

  • Assist Character: The Mobilsuits from Side Arms: Hyper Dyne serve them as support characters.
  • Continuity Nod: There are a few references to Bios, the Big Bad from their origin game, in the game. They were in the middle of fighting him just when they were yanked into the Namco x Capcom plot, actually.
  • Cool Shades: Both sports some nice shades.
  • The Gunslinger: Both use fierarms as their main weaponry.
  • Humongous Mecha: Both Mobilsuits combine into one during their Multiple Assault with Sylphie.
  • The Nameless: Both have never been given any names, and have went on without one their whole life. They don't really mind or care, and tell the others to call them whenever they want. Sylphie is the one to christen them "Unknown Super Soldiers" after Felicia's failed attempt.
  • More Dakka: They use submachine guns to attack.
  • Salt and Pepper: 1P is white, 2P is black.
  • Super Soldiers


  • Accidental Pervert: She comes out as this in her inner mologue following MOMO making use of her skills:
    "High-level surveillance abilities... Ahhh... I don't care if it's wrong... I so desperately want her... abilities..."
  • Arms Dealer
  • Cosplay: Aside from possessing an arsenal consisting of various weapons and items from Capcom arcade games, she also can dress up as (and copy the techniques of) four other Capcom females: Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike's Makoto, Michelle Heart from Legendary Wings, Linn Kurosawa from Alien Vs Predator Capcom, and Mai-Ling from Red Earth. She also gets to sell two Magical Girl costumes to MOMO (one for a Rare Hunter skill, the other for a Limit Break).
  • Dungeon Shop: Just like in her original game, one has to wonder just how Sylphie was able to set up a shop that magically raises from beneath the ground just as the party arrives…
  • Greed: She's ultimately good, but her "bussiness side" tends to slip up plenty of time when she talks.
  • Humongous Mecha: "Borrowed" Jin's Blodia for this game.
  • Infinity+1 Equipment: The dress she makes available for 9999 G before starting the final chapter is this, as it raises all stats by 25.
  • Lethal Joke Character: Nothing about her is openly badass. She's not even an active party character. Yet the nature of her shop and everything in it indicates that she in some ways may be among the most powerful characters in the game.
  • Shout-Out: As stated above, her movelist harkens back to several Capcom games of past, such as Magic Sword: Heroic Fantasy, Bionic Commando and Black Tiger.
  • True Blue Femininity

    From Ghosts 'n Goblins 




  • Belly Mouth: Much like Astaroth.
  • One-Winged Angel: He's much stronger than Astaroth.
  • Split Personality Takeover: Nebiroth was created when Astaroth's soul was split into two, a punishment he suffered after losing to Arthur in the past. When he's killed, Nebiroth takes over his body entirely.

Red Arremer Joker

  • Continuity Nod: Plenty of hints are thrown throughout the game about Joker being the Red Arremer from the Gargoyles Quest series, more specifically the protagonist of the third game, Demon's Crest.
  • Defector from Decadence: Seeing the chaotic state of the Demon Village and the bad guy's side, which reminded him of the chaos back during the "War of the Crest", Joker decides to abandon his duties, even if it meant "living in disgrace", and die fighting Arthur and the good guys in order to test their strenght and see if they could restore balance to all worlds.
  • The Dragon: To Astaroth, to the point he refuses to assist Nebiroth once he takes over.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: Anyone want to question the badassery of the big red dragon?
  • The Leader: He's the leader of all Red Arremers forming the Makai Village's army.
  • Name's the Same: As Druaga's treacherous clown.
  • Noble Demon
  • Playing with Fire
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: A long time ago, he fought in the "War of the Crest" (a reference to Demon's Crest) for the sake of the Makai Village.
  • Winged Humanoid: Gargoyle-style wings.
  • Worthy Opponent: Seems to regard Arthur as this.

    From Mega Man Legends 

    From Resident Evil: Dead Aim 

Bruce McGivern

Fong Ling

  • Chinese Girl
  • Expy: Of Ada Wong, though it's less clear here — she and Bruce vaguely hint at the storyline events of their original game's story, in which she pretty much plays this straight.
  • Irony: The Resident Evil protagonist forms a tag team with a Chinese Zombie.
