Power Stone

    Edward Falcon
The Red Whirlwind

The Cherry Blossom Dancer

  • Age Lift: In the tie-in anime, she's 14 years old— which is two years younger than she is in the games and manga, where she's 16.
  • Animal Motifs: Her Power Change form resembles both a rabbit and a butterfly.
  • Apologetic Attacker: Apologises to her opponent/partner when performing a combination attack.
    Ayame: Gomen ne! [I'm sorry!]
  • Badass Adorable: One of the youngest fighters and certainly among the cutest, but definitely capable of laying a beating. She even lampshades it with one of her potential lines as she transforms into Power Change mode—
    Ayame: Kawaii, no? [Cute, no?]
  • Blade Spam: Her main form of attack in her Power Change (Cherry Blossom Dancer) mode, from giant-sized Kunai and Shuriken.
  • Blush Sticker: Has an ever-present blush to her cheeks.
  • Double Jump: Capable of performing these, as can be expected of her speed, agility and skills as a kunoichi.
  • Flechette Storm: She can summon and throw a series of Kunai throwing knives as one of her special attacks in her Power Change form.
  • Floral Theme Naming: Her name means Iris in Japanese, and true to her Japanese(ish) heritage and her profession as a Ninja, she's also associated a lot with Cherry Blossoms.
  • Fragile Speedster: Ayame is the fastest character in the original Power Stone and is roughly tied with Accel in Power Stone 2, but she's a bit lacking in defence and has trouble throwing heavy objects.
  • Friend to All Living Things: One of her introductions in both games involves her kneeling down with, talking to, and feeding a small group of songbirds from the palm of her hand.
  • Fuuma Shuriken: As if the Kunai weren't enough, she can also summon and throw volleys of these in her Cherry Blossom Dancer form, and wears one on her back.
  • Genki Girl: Fittingly for her profession as an entertainer, she's a very energetic, excitable and upbeat young girl who goes into her battles with a smile, and enjoys using her agility to toy with her opponents.
  • Hair Decorations: Her hairdo is held together by a gold-coloured headband and traditional Japanese hairpins.
  • Killer Rabbit: Both figuratively and literally. Easy to underestimate due to her young age and fragility, but still very much capable of pummelling foes much larger than her. Literally becomes one in her Cherry Blossom Dancer form.
  • Kid Hero: At 16 years old, she's the youngest character in the original game. Whilst not the youngest in the entire series (Pete from Power Stone 2 is even younger), she remains the youngest human.
  • Kimono: Wears one that's tied up around her waist and shoulders with a Giant Waist Ribbon and candy-striped ropes respectively to prevent it from restricting her movement.
  • Magical Flutist: She plays a flute as her taunt, in fitting with both her ninja and street performer identities.
  • Ninja: Kunoichi, to be precise.
    • Highly Visible Ninja: Debatable if she's this or actually a more accurate version of a ninja. Less debatable is her Power Charge, which involves her transforming into a brightly-colored (Pink by default) rabbit-like form that can summon giant shuriken from thin air.
  • Ninja Run: It's more subtle than most examples since she doesn't do it by default, but Ayame does this when she picks up a long weapon like a staff or a sword.
  • Parasol of Prettiness: Her other introduction involves her holding a traditional Japanese oil-paper umbrella, which she spins off to one side with her hands as she adapts a fighting stance.
  • Panty Shot: She's the only character in the series with visible underwear— and although it can't be seen on her model, the suspiciously-detailed textures on her lower body show that her belly was meant to be visible underneath her dress as well. Her panties vary in color depending on which player she is, but just for — they're a dark red in her default green costume in the first game, and dark blue in the sequel.
  • The Red Baron: The Cherry Blossom Dancer.
  • She-Fu: Naturally for a Kunoichi and acrobat, Ayame's fighting style involves a lot of flips, somersaults, and other such gymnastic manoeuvres. They include a cartwheel as her dash attack, rolling through an opponent's legs and onto her hands to horse-kick them, and her Cherry Blossom Dance Power Fusion— in which she quickly flips and swings all around her opponent to land several acrobatic throws, punches and kicks, before throwing them upward with a somersaulting kick and tossing several kunai at them in mid-air.
  • Stock Ninja Weaponry: Especially in her Power Change mode, where she predominantly attacks by throwing volleys of giant shuriken and kunai, as well as teleporting short distances to set up or dodge attacks.
  • Street Performer: Masquerades as one with a travelling troupe in order to keep her ninja identity a secret.
  • Teens Are Short: At only 5'2" (157cm) tall and weighing in at only 93lbs (42kg), she qualifies as this.
  • Third-Person Person: One of her possible lines in her introductions—
    Ayame: Ayame sanjo! [Ayame's here!]
  • Trademark Favorite Food: In the tie-in manga, she's shown to be very fond of lollipops.
  • V-Sign: Gives a playful one as part of one her win poses.
  • Waif-Fu / Muscles Are Meaningless: See Killer Rabbit.
  • Weapon of Choice: As a ninja, Ayame is often seen wielding Kunai and Shuriken. She hosts a VMU-exclusive mini-game in the original version that's based on it, where she has to throw them at as many attacking evil ninja as possible.
  • Winged Humanoid: Although not literally like Mel or Galuda, the giant shuriken she carries on her back and the long ear-like things on her head in her Power Charge form give her a passing resemblance to a butterfly.

The Agile Dragon

  • Animal Motifs: In fitting with his background in Chinese-style martial arts, he's associated a lot with dragons.
  • Big Eater: As shown in his transformed Victory Pose in Power Stone 2, where instead of taunting, he sits down and eats Chinese steamed buns- one in each hand, no less. It's also evident in some of his dialogue—
    Wang-Tang: Hara ni chikara ga haite ne zo! (Your strength doesn't come from your stomach!)
    Wang-Tang: Haraheppa! (I'm starving!)
    Wang-Tang: U~me! (I'm hungry!)
  • Blow You Away: Wang-Tang's Ryuu Taifuu (Dragon Typhoon) Power Fusion from the first game works like this— allowing him to perform a powerful Tatsumaki-esque spinning kick on the spot that generates a large whirlwind where he is, sucking opponents in and dealing multiple hits if they get too close.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Comes with the territory when your Power Change is based on a Super Saiyan!
  • Chef of Iron: His usual profession besides being a martial-artist is a chef. Although it does not show up so much in the games (especially when compared to Gourmand), it's much more evident in the anime and magna adaptations.
  • Expy: His Power Change form looks like a Super Saiyan from Dragon Ball. He even has similar attacks.
    • Character-wise, he's a lot like Son Goku in particular— a dedicated and very powerful but somewhat-naïve martial artist with a massive appetite and a preference for ki-based abilities. He even shares the trait of having Cross-Dressing Voices!
  • Fragile Speedster: Not quite as fast as say, Ayame, but has stronger defence to make up for it.
  • Gratuitous English: Unlike the other characters, Wang-Tang tends to use more English words in his dialogue. Examples include "Lucky!"/"Okay!" when he gets an item, "YAHOO!" in one of his introductions, "Thank you!" when he's revived, and "Immortal!" when he wins.
  • Hot-Blooded: He's especially shown to be this when he transforms, calling out to his opponents to fight and yelling the names of his attacks at the top of his lungs.
    Wang-Tang: Oya wa tsuyoi! (I'M STRONGER!)
    Wang-Tang: "Makenai ze! (I WON'T LOSE!)
    Wang-Tang: Shobu da! (LET'S FIGHT!)
  • Hurricane Kick: Wang-Tang's Ryuu Taifuu (Dragon Typhoon) Power Fusion is a literal example.
  • Idiot Hero: While it's not to the point that by all rights he shouldn't be breathing, he does still think that the legendary treasure his master wanted was a pair of golden dentures.
  • Kamehame Hadouken: Uses Kamehameha-like bursts of ki as his standard projectile move in his Power Change, can use a Spirit Bomb-like orb of the stuff for his Dairyuudama (Big Dragon Ball) Power Fusion, and uses a dragon-shaped vertical burst to finish off his Butenryuubu (Warrior Heaven's Dragon Dance).
  • Ki Attacks: In his Power Change mode.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Male example, as his ponytail goes right down his back.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: He loves Chinese steamed buns.
  • The Red Baron: The Agile Dragon.
  • Secret Test of Character: Unbeknownst to him, the legendary treasure that his master has sent him out to find is his own power as martial-arts master.

The Scorching Beauty

  • Bare Your Midriff: Besides Ayame's Dummied Out textures, Rouge is the only female character in the series to have a midriff-baring outfit.
  • Belly Dancer: She's even the trope picture.
  • Boobs of Steel: She has the largest and most evident bust out of all the females in the series, and is undoubtedly one of its toughest fighters.
  • Crystal Ball: According to her backstory, she uses one of these to see into the future- in fact, it getting damaged from the dark power coming from the Floating Castle is one of her motivations to fight in Power Stone 2, leading her to warp up to the power's source to put a stop to it herself.
  • Dance Battler: Given that she's a Belly Dancer, her fighting style revolves predominantly around using various dance-like moves to attack with.
  • Dub Name Change: In the European versions of the games, she's known as the Searing Beauty.
  • Foreign Fanservice: Hails from the evidently very Middle Eastern-inspired land of Mahdad.
  • Fortune Teller: According to her backstory, she's quite an accomplished one.
  • Fragile Speedster: Much like Wang Tang, she's one of these- albeit slightly slower and more powerful than the likes of Ayame and Accel.
  • Magic Carpet: She sits on and drops down to the arena from one in one of her intros.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name means Red in French, a colour often associated with fire and heat.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Definitely! Slender frame, large breasts, Middle Eastern-style heritage and appearance, sensual voice and dance-based fighting style, a midriff-baring outfit that leaves little to the imagination- she's got it going on in all the right places. It even tells you right in her alias- "the Scorching Beauty".
    • This is Played for Laughs in her ending. When she's telling fortunes at her World's Fair exhibition in Paris, some of her customers make a wish to see her naked. The Power Stone proceeds to do just that, forcing Rouge to jump in front of the illusion in sheer embarrassment to cover it.
    Rouge: Ahh! How could you make such a wish?! Shame on you!
  • Opera Gloves: Her gloves extend right up to her elbows.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: One of her eyes is covered by her hair.
  • Playing with Fire: She's often associated with fire in both her forms, so of course her Power Charge predominantly involves using it to scorch opponents senseless- including breathing fire, adding it to her punches and kicks, and even summoning a giant stone head to launch fireballs at opponents with.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her long ponytail extends well down to the backs of her knees.
  • The Red Baron: The Scorching Beauty.
  • Underboobs: Her transformed appearance has concentric gold pasties covering her breasts, and nothing else.
  • Waistcoat of Style: Wears an Arabian-style sleeveless jacket as part of her belly-dancing attire.

The Master Swordsman

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: According to his Power Stone 2 bio, his sword is said to be strong and sharp enough to "cut iron like tofu".
  • And the Adventure Continues: He comes across a Power Stone in his ending, but since he was actually looking for strong opponents to fight on his journey rather than actively searching for it, he decides to destroy it to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands. With that, he reflects on his journey, stating that "the World is vast and infinite", and proceeds to embark on a new adventure.
  • Animal Motifs: In his Power Change form, his armour takes a lot of cues from the Japanese Rhinoceros Beetle.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: If his original bio and ending are anything to go by, he's apparently capable of single-handedly rowing across entire oceans in his wooden rowing boat.
  • Detect Evil: The sword he wields in Power Stone 2 has this ability- given that it senses the presence of the Floating Castle, and guides Ryoma to the evil lurking within for the purpose of destroying it.
  • Expy: His Power Change form looks like the Silver Samurai.
  • Glass Cannon: His sword attacks are powerful and have good range, but leave him open if they miss. He's also one of the weaker characters when it comes to throwing and using heavy items.
  • Japanese Beetle Brothers: His Master Swordsman form's helmet has a long horn on it that gives him a passing resemblance to a Japanese Rhinoceros Beetle.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: He constantly wields a classic samurai katana, making him one of only two characters in the original game (And one of six in Power Stone 2, along with Jack, Mel, Accel, Julia and Gourmand) to constantly wield a weapon. Interestingly, it appears to function like a Bastard Sword, given that he can swing it effectively with both one or two hands.
  • Master Swordsman: It's even his official title.
  • The Red Baron: The Master Swordsman.
  • Samurai: The classic "wandering swordsman" take on the archetype. Taken Up to Eleven with his Power Change mode, where he becomes fully clad in gleaming silver samurai armour with a colour scheme similar to that of the Japanese flag.
  • Samurai Ponytail: In fitting with his profession, his hair is done up this way.
  • Shock and Awe: In his Power Change form, Ryoma is capable of projecting powerful bursts of lightning from his sword.
  • Wandering the Earth: Originally, he was a warrior from an island nation who soon ran out of worthy opponents who could compete with his skill, so he sets out on a journey in his trusty rowing boat, touring the world and seeking out tougher opponents to fight.

The Heavy Tank

The Proud Eagle

The Mad Clown

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: As seen in the anime, his Mad Clown form's arm blades are strong and sharp enough to cleanly slice through boulders.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: He has a particular fascination with shiny objects such as jewels, and enjoys stealing them. In fact, his entire motivation for fighting is given to be because Power Stones are shiny, he enjoys cutting things with his knives, and that's good enough for him.
  • Ax-Crazy: Very much insane, and his only other loves aside from stealing? Murder, madness, and mutiliation.
  • Bandaged Face: Taken Up to Eleven with his whole body being bandaged, giving him a similar appearance to an Egyptian Mummy.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Despite committing evil acts such as murder and robbery, he makes no distinction between good and evil.
  • Companion Cube: Jack has a habit of referring to his Power Stone as "my lovely" in the anime, and often talks to it like it's a living being.
  • Confusion Fu: Not only he is fast and quick to attack but he crawls around like an insect.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Not the sanest individual around, to say the least.
  • Evil Laugh: Has a creepy distorted one as part of one of his introductions, and again as part of his victory dialogue.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: His Killer Dance Power Drive, which involves him summoning two large blades and a circular glowing seal beneath him, before spinning upward like a helicopter to deal multiple hits.
  • Flechette Storm: His Misery Rain Power Drive, which involves him summoning a barrage of energy knives to impale his enemies with.
  • Giggling Villain: See Evil Laugh.
  • Jack the Ripper: Is named after and is an expy of the infamous serial killer.
  • Knife Nut: Jack dual-wields a pair of scimitar-like daggers in combat.
  • Monster Clown: His Power Change form, the Mad Clown, is a bizarre hybrid of a mummy and one of these— complete with a giant single eyeball in the middle of his head that resembles a red nose.
  • Not Quite Flight: Can spin his upper torso around in mid-air to hover briefly and float slowly to the ground.
  • The Red Baron: The Mad Clown.
  • Really 700 Years Old: In the Anime, his age is given as at least 100 years old— as well as being the last descendent of the noble Winslow family.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Or rather, one red eye.
  • Serial Killer: Although in source material, he seems to vary between being this and a thief— accosting strangers so he can steal their shiny jewellery.
  • Xanatos Gambit: His ending has him get caught right after getting the Power Stone. So everything's good, right? Except it's a fake created by the Power Stone, and the real Jack is free to continue his crime spree whilst nobody suspects a thing.

The Ghost Pirate

  • Bedsheet Ghost: Can summon several of these to attack opponents with his Skull Soul Power Fusion.
  • Dem Bones: Becomes a skeleton in his Power Change form, the Ghost Pirate.
  • The Dragon: Well, he is always the one you face before facing off against Valgas.
  • Eye Scream: His left eye is missing entirely.
  • Facial Horror: Half his face (Including his left eye) appears to be missing and replaced with a construct that resembles a metallic skull.
  • Floating Limbs: Gains these in his Ghost Pirate form, along with a powerful Flintlock Pistol that shoots bombs.
  • Gag Nose: Has a massive, bright red one.
  • Gonk: Definitely. Giant red nose, bulging eye, Perma-Stubble, missing teeth, half his face and an eye missing and reconstructed to look like a metal skull...he's got it going on in all the wrong places.
  • Grappling-Hook Pistol: Kraken's mechanical claw functions as this for his Ghost Pirate form's default attack. It launches out to attack from a distance, but if it hits a wall or other obstacle at its full length, it pulls him over there very quickly.
  • Having a Blast: Can launch explosive cannonballs from his Flintlock gun in Power Change mode.
  • Mechanical Claw Hand: Which he can extend in his Power Change mode to pull opponents toward him from a distance.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Show of hands. Does a guy named after a legendary beast such as kraken sound even vaguely friendly?
  • Nice Hat: Wears a classic piratical Tricorn in both his regular and Power Change forms.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Ghost Pirate Highwayman in his Power Change mode, to be precise.
  • Perma-Stubble: Has this going on in his regular form, adding to his piratical look.
  • Pirate: Was once a feared leader of a group of brigands known as King Octopus, and wants to use the Power Stone to resurrect his old crewmates and continue his reign of terror on the high seas.
  • Scary Teeth: Most of his are missing.
  • Swiss Army Weapon: His claw can transform into different weapons for different purposes- including a drill when he attacks from a wall or pole.
  • The Red Baron: The Ghost Pirate.
  • Vacuum Mouth: His Phantom Feast Power Fusion involves his skull head turning huge and sucking opponents towards him with vacuum breath. It has a short range, but if he catches an opponent with it, he'll chew down on them multiple times and spit them out to deal massive damage.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: He prioritizes collecting the Power Stones— much like Vargas immediately after him— so expect to see him in Power Change mode often if you don't grab them as soon as possible before he does.

The Hell's Army Leader

  • Almighty Idiot: In his Final Valgas form, Valgas gains a lot of power, but loses his usual intelligence and ability to control said power— as described in his ending.
  • Badass Boast: In fitting with his stasis as both a wrestler and a Large Ham, Valgas is quite fond of doling these out—
    Valgas: Kowapa ga, hyakunen hayaiyu wa! (Weakling, you came a hundred years too soon!)
    Valgas: Shin no chikara o murugaii! (NOW YOU'LL SEE MY TRUE POWER!)
    Valgas: Ware fumetsu nari! (I'll live forever!)
  • Big Bad: Of the original Power Stone and the accompanying anime and manga based on it. He is nowhere to be seen in the sequel, so Doctor Erode takes over his role there.
  • Eldritch Abomination: His Final Valgas form is a hideous slug-like creature with a glowing mouth and eyes that appears to be made half of melted flesh and half of broken rock and crystal. It's also shown to be dosed up on so much energy from the Power Stone that Valgas can no longer control himself in this form.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: This becomes evident for Valgas in his ending. In it, he finds the final piece of a broken Power Stone that he had been seeking, and uses its magic to gain more power— but he ends up being consumed by his greed and gets transformed into an all-powerful but uncontrollable monster.
  • Evil Orphan: In the anime, he is mentioned to have grown up as an orphan.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: Both of Valgas' transformations have this element. His Hell's Army Leader form is a demon composed of dark, jagged rock with crystalline horns and the Power Stone set inside its chest like a heart, and his Final Valgas form is half-made of cragged rock and crystal, and can attack by firing explosive stalagmites out of its back.
  • Final Boss: Of the original Power Stone.
  • Guns Are Worthless: He has a handgun on his belt, but is never seen using it. Zig-Zagged if he picks up another gun.
  • Jerkass: Very condescending and dismissive of those he considers weaker than himself—
  • Large Ham: To the point where just about everything he says can be finished with an exclamation mark—
    Valgas: (as he shows off his Power Stone) Watasan zo! (I WON'T GIVE THIS TO YOU!)
  • Kamehame Hadoken: His PS (Power Stone) Energy Power Drive and his PS Energy Maximum Power Fusion involves using massive beams of energy to attack with, which are difficult to avoid and do huge damage. The energy for them is generated from the Power Stone fused into his chest.
  • One-Winged Angel: Turns into Final Valgas for his second battle.
  • Power Crystal: He usually wears the broken piece of the Power Stone that he has on a chain around his neck, and it fuses into his chest and acts as an energy source for his Kamehame Hadoken and Shock and Awe attacks in his Hell's Army Leader form.
  • The Red Baron: The Hell's Army Leader.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Just in case you forget he's evil and all.
  • Scary Teeth: His are all notably very pointed and shark-like.
  • Shock and Awe: His Meteor Chain Power Fusion involves him blasting the opponent with a huge spreading burst of lightning that is very difficult to avoid under most circumstances.
  • Shout-Out: His name is a slight corruption of the word Vulgus— a reference to the first video game that Capcom produced, back in 1984.
  • Slasher Smile: Has an unnerving shark-like one.
  • SNK Boss: In his default form, and how. Ironically, he actually becomes considerably easier to defeat when he turns into Final Valgas, due to losing a lot of speed and being a much bigger target to hit, making him easy to tear through with projectile-based Power Fusions.
  • Sociopathic Soldier: He's a former soldier who later became a wrestler, and is a noticeably smug and callous jerkass.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: In fitting with his basis as a wrestler, he wears no shirt. However, he does sometimes wear a red vest or robe in the Anime, so it's zig-zagged.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: In the game itself, Valgas is seen using a wrestling-style body slam as his mid-air attack, and a double powerbomb as his throw. In the anime and manga, he's actually known as a wrestling face and a very popular fighter in general— and Edward Falcon is described as being a big fan of him before his true colours are revealed.

Power Stone 2

The Vagabond Gunman

  • Airplane Arms: In fitting with a guy whose fighting style revolves around his speed, he has these whenever he runs.
  • Arm Cannon: Wields a pair of revolver-like submachine guns on his hands in his Power Change mode that can either fire standard rapid-fire shots ("YOU GOT HIT!") for his Beat Assault attack, but also more powerful homing bullets for his Crazy Revolver Power Drive.
  • Badass Biker: Especially in his Power Change mode, where he can not only skate around with the wheels on his feet, but also transform into an enormous Wheel Bike-like Buzzsaw to mow down opponents with.
  • Badass Boast: Being confident in his skills, he has a few-
    (Intro) Shobu ni naranai na! [This fight's too easy to win!]
    (Intro against Doctor Erode) Ore to harigaoto yuno ka? [You sure you want to fight me?]
    (Taunt) Koko narai na! [Aim right here!]
  • Bond One-Liner: And again-
    Ma, konna tokoro da... [Well, this is the end of the road...]
    Shikaku nashi da. [You shouldn't have done that.]
    Atari maii daga na. [Everyone knew what the outcome would be.]
  • Cool Mask: A red Domino Mask, to be precise.
  • Cowboy: He's the classic depiction of an Old-West gunslinger- a Stetson-clad, dual pistol-wielding wanderer who's cool and collected, yet highly confident in his skills.
  • Dual Wielding / Guns Akimbo: Although he carries a pair of revolvers with him in his human form, he rarely uses them- only in his 2P/4P intros and win poses, and when jumping off a wall or a pole. However, he does gain a cool-looking pair of submachine guns for hands as part of his Power Change, the Vagabond Gunman, which he uses much more extensively.
  • Giving Someone the Pointer Finger: In his Power Stone 2 artwork, he's seen giving a smug finger wag.
  • Grudging "Thank You": When revived after being knocked out-
    Accel: Yoke na kotto wa... [I don't need your help...]
  • Meaningful Name- The shortened form of "acceleration", in reference to his quick speed.
  • Nice Hat: Because Stetsons are cool, after all.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: In his Power Change mode, he turns into a Cowboy-Biker-Automobile-Robot with submachine guns for hands.
  • The Gunslinger / Walking the Earth: As he mentions in his bio- "Have gun, will travel".
  • The Red Baron: The Vagabond Gunman.
  • Revenge: This is shown to be his main motivation in his bio- he gets ambushed by a gang of heavies and tied to a hot air balloon, ending up in the Floating Castle as a result. Interestingly, it's the only backstory told entirely in First Person.
    "When I regained consciousness... I found myself here. They call me Accel- have gun, will travel. I got ambushed by a rough 'n' tough bunch of guys in town. Actually, they tied me to a hot air balloon and let me loose in the skies. Boy, did they get the best of me. My blood is boiling, and my soul thirsts for justice. I have to get out of here. It's time they had a healthy helping of justice pie."
  • Rugged Scar: Has a rather noticeable one that takes up most of the left side of his face.
  • Scarf of Asskicking: In both forms, it almost takes on the appearance of a Badass Cape.

    Julia Whitepearl
The Serene Grace

  • Amusement Park of Doom: Her Merry-Go-Round Power Fusion is based around this— in which she summons up a giant fairground carousel that can trap multiple opponents at once and knock them around constantly.
  • Apologetic Attacker: She apologises politely when she uses another character as part of a combination attack—
    Julia: Gomen nasai! [I'm really sorry about this!]
  • Contralto of Danger: Her Serene Grace form speaks with a much deeper and more sultry voice, and is prone to making innuendoes—
    Julia: Oshioki yo! [Your punishment!]
    Julia: Sa, tanoshi masettangeru... [This is going to be entertaining...]
    Julia: Otanoshimi wa...korakorai yo! [The fun's going to start...right now!]
  • Crucified Hero Shot: Can inflict this on her opponents using her Slave of Love attack in her Power Change form— she fires off a projectile that, if it hits an opponent, can temporarily tie them onto an X-shaped cross, leaving them open for her to attack.
  • Dominatrix: Her Power Change mode, the Serene Grace, gives her a resemblance to one— complete with fishnet tights, a leotard, tall boots, a Domino Mask, and a deeper, more mischievous tone to her voice.
  • Girly Run: Unlike the other women in the series, she runs in this manner— which actually fits, considering she's evidently had the most formal upbringing of any of them.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's one of the more amicable and polite characters in the series, and has the classic blonde hair to match. Unlike most examples though, her alternate colours allow her to change it to different colours, including brown and red.
  • High Class Gloves: Wears a long pair of white opera gloves that go almost all the way up her arms.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Working hand-in-hand with her blonde hair, her big blue eyes give a real sense of innocence and gentleness— yet at the same time, masking the other, wilder side to who she is.
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: As seen above, her waist is tiny compared to her upper body. This could be explained as being part of her Pimped-Out Dress though, since her Power Change mode has somewhat more realistic proportions.
  • Kicking Ass in All Her Finery/Lady of War: Her refined, formal appearance doesn't do a thing to stop her from throwing down with the rest of them.
  • Parasol of Pain: Her parasol functions well not only as a nice accessory, keeping the rain/sun off and gliding through the air, it's also pretty good for whacking people with.
  • Parasol of Prettiness: She always carries around her parasol with her, making her one of the few characters in the series to constantly wield a weapon— and it gives her surprising versatility for how frail she initially looks in combat.
  • Parasol Parachute: The parasol allows her to jump up to two more times in mid-air, and hover/glide to increase her jumping distance and precision.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: And how!
  • Proper Lady: She's the sole daughter of the prestigious Whitepearl family, and is definitely one of the most polite fighters in the franchise— clapping politely for one of her victory animations, and apologising to and thanking opponents even in the middle of fights—
    Julia: [after being revived] Tasuikari mashita! [I'm very grateful!]
    Julia: Onegai shimasu! [I am pleased to meet you!]
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: She wears a pair of white leggings underneath her dress, which helps with preventing any unnecessary wardrobe-malfunctions whilst fighting in an enormous dress.
  • The Red Baron: The Serene Grace.
  • Magic Skirt: Her dress works like this to avoid any accidental exposure— on top of wearing white tights already, her feet and legs are visible underneath it, but nothing else.
  • Rummage Sale Reject: Man, look at her Power Change mode. They weren't kidding when they said that Julia had a wild personality.
  • Split Personality: Most of the time, she's a very gentle and graceful lady. However, she also has a wild personality that even she is unaware of— which is reflected in her Power Change mode.
    • In fact, this is the main reason she's involved in the events of the game. Her family owned a Power Stone and hoped to use it to be able to calm Julia's wild side down. This led to her, in an extended bout of her wild personality, stealing the Stone and running away from home— and eventually, when she comes to, finds herself inside the Floating Castle.
    "I don't know what happened...but I must get out of here and go home!"
  • Trap Master: Her moveset in her Power Change Mode specializes in this— among her abilities, she's capable of temporarily tying opponents onto X-shaped crosses, and summoning a giant Merry-Go-Round to trap multiple opponents inside and smash them around.

The Invention Boy

  • Children Are Innocent: Rather than using the Power Stone to wish for power or something for himself as with the other fighters, his wish is to "create wonderful things that surprise and delight people everywhere!"
  • Kid-Appeal Character: A Pinocchio-like wooden doll with a cheerful personality who uses toys to defeat opponents with in his Power Change form? He's definitely this, to say the least.
  • Kid Hero: Is the youngest character in the series due to being a child-like wooden doll who has only recently come to life.
  • Living Toys: In his Power Change AND normal form. In his regular form, he's a Pinocchio-like wooden doll, and becomes a powerful clockwork robot in his Power Change form.
  • Magikarp Power: Pete is pretty sub-par all-around in his base form (Asides from his small size and agility making it easy for him to avoid attacks), but his Super Mode is arguably one of the strongest in the franchise.
  • Mega Ne: Wears a big pair of glasses to further emphasise his theme of technology and invention.
  • My Little Panzer: Fights with toys in his Power Change form, including summoning a squadron of Toy Soldiers or Model Airplanes to swarm them and/or fill his opponents with bullets.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a rather snazzy flat-cap.
  • Power Crystal: He's able to move about on his own due to having a Power Stone inside his chest.
  • The Red Baron: The Invention Boy.
  • Shock and Awe: In his Power Change form, he's capable of summoning enormous pillars of lightning to attack from the air, or when on the ground, can fire off gigantic spheres of electricity.

The Evil Chef

    Pride Falcon
Pride Falcon

  • Adventurer Archaeologist: Pride was quite an established one of these in his youth, and his son Edward follows in his footsteps accordingly.
  • Awesome McCoolname: We repeat, Pride Falcon.
  • Badass Grandpa: He's the oldest playable character in the series, but can still throw down with the rest of them.
  • Badass Moustache: A rather dapper grey one to complete the classic "middle-aged British gentleman" look.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: First appeared in the original Power Stone in Falcon's ending, when he and his flying skills accidentally cause Falcon to drop the Power Stone they'd found earlier out of their biplane.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Like Edward, he never puts his goggles on when fighting. Downplayed though, in that he does wear them whilst flying his son's Hockenheim biplane.
  • Palette Swap: Of Edward. He even uses altered versions of his son's attacks, and a couple carried over from his appearance in the original Power Stone.
  • Red Baron: Averted. Along with Mel, he's one of only two characters whose Power Change forms do not have names.
  • Scarf of Asskicking: Pride wears a long green flying scarf that he, unlike his son Edward, wears loose.
  • Quintessential British Gentleman: He's one of these, much like his son. Although he doesn't wear the Union Flag patches like Falcon does, he's still evidently very formal and polite towards his opponents, even when he's beating them up.

The Shopkeeper

  • Adorkable: Her great big smile and excited "hands-together" gesture whenever she wins or you give her a present is definitely this.
  • Apron Matron: She wears a big pink frilly apron, complete with "POWER STONE ITEM SHOP" written across it multiple times.
  • Catch-Phrase: "Thank you very much!"
  • Hartman Hips: Although nothing too outlandish, she's got some pretty evident hips compared to the other women in the series.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Her eyes are a bright blue colour- and in fitting with her role as a shopkeeper, she's definitely one of the more amicable characters you'll find in the series.
  • Joke Character: Has the lowest defense in the game by far and her overall attack power is quite weak as well while her Power Change mode design is uninspired. However...
    • Lethal Joke Character: She is the only character that can use FOUR Power Fusions in her Power Change mode, while everyone else can only do two.
  • Magic Skirt: Her dress works a lot like Julia's in that her feet and legs are visible underneath it, but nothing else.
  • Magikarp Power: Downplayed compared to Pete, but still present. Her super mode is very strong, if a little spoony, and her base form does have some advantages - mostly cause of the umbrella she carries, which gives her good attacking range and the ability to glide and triple-jump.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: As shown by her happy reaction when you give her the Horror Book in Power Stone 2, Mel's a big fan of horror stories.
  • Palette Swap: Of Julia.
  • Parasol of Pain: Much like Julia, she can use the umbrella she carries to increase her attacking range, triple-jump, and glide through the air for great airborne manoeuvrability. And of course, for whacking people with.
  • Power Gives You Wings: To the point that ALL that she gets in her Power Change mode is wings. Appropriately enough, they're the "Angel Wings" item she sells in the shop.
  • Red Baron: Averted. Along with Pride Falcon, she's one of only two characters in the series whose Power Change forms do not have names.
  • She's Got Legs: Going hand-in-hand with her Hartman Hips, she actually has some nice slender legs under her dress- emphasised by her short boots and the fact that unlike Julia, she doesn't wear tights.
  • Sigil Spam: Besides the aforementioned "POWER STONE ITEM SHOP" logos she has on her apron, her skirt also has a dollar-sign pattern to it to further complement her theme of being the shopkeeper.
  • You Gotta Have Pink Hair: Unusually for this game, her hair is a vivid shade of pink whilst everyone else's are relatively normal colours.
  • Youthful Freckles: They're quite hard to see, but she has these going on around her nose.
