Power Stone

    Edward Falcon
The Red Whirlwind

The Cherry Blossom Dancer

  • Apologetic Attacker: Apologises to her opponent/partner when performing a combination attack.
    Ayame: Gomen ne! [I'm sorry!]
  • Badass Adorable/Cute Bruiser: One of the youngest fighters and certainly among the cutest, but definitely capable of laying a beating — with nothing but her bare hands in her default form, no less. 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.
  • Double Jump: Capable of performing these, as can be expected of her speed and ninja skills.
  • 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 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 involves her kneeling down with and feeding a small group of songbirds from 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: Very energetic, excitable and upbeat.
  • 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 with a Giant Waist Ribbon 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.
  • 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 reference- they're a dark red in her default green costume in the first game, and dark blue in the sequel.
  • Teens Are Short: At only 5'2" (157cm) tall and weighing in at only 93lbs (42kg), she qualifies as this.
  • The Red Baron: The Cherry Blossom Dancer.
  • Third-Person Person: One of her possible lines in her introductions-
    Ayame: Ayame sanjo! [Ayame's here!]
  • Stock Ninja Weaponry: Especially in her Power Change mode, where she can throw volleys of giant shuriken and kunai.
  • Street Performer: Masquerades as one with a travelling troupe in order to keep her ninja identity a secret.
  • V Sign: Gives a playful one as part of one her win poses.
  • Waif-Fu / Muscles Are Meaningless: See Killer Rabbit.
  • Weapon of Choice: She's often seen wielding Kunai knives and Shuriken when not exclusively relying on her bare hands.
  • 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

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Fragile Speedster: Not quite as fast as Ayame, but has stronger defence to make up for it.
  • Gratuitous English: "Lucky!"
  • Idiot Hero: While 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 gold dentures.
  • Kamehame Hadouken: Uses Kamehameha-like bursts of ki as his standard projectile move in his Power Change, and can use a Spirit Bomb-like orb of the stuff for one of his Power Fusions.
  • Ki Attacks: In his Power Change mode.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Male example, as his ponytail goes right down his back.
  • The Red Baron: The Agile Dragon.
  • Secret Test of Character: Unbeknownst to him, the legendary treasure 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.
  • Blinding Bangs: One of her eyes is covered by her hair.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Bad Ass: A wandering samurai who constantly wields an Absurdly Sharp Blade and travels the World searching for strong opponents to battle? Somehow, you know he's going to be this.
  • 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 sword, 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.
  • 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.
  • Shock and Awe: In his Power Change form.
  • 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

  • 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: 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.
  • 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 into the air 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: Wields a pair of daggers in combat.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 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.
  • Raymanian Limbs: Gains these in his Ghost Pirate form, along with a powerful Flintlock Pistol that shoots bombs.
  • 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 (and Valgas after him) prioritizes collecting the Power Stones, so expect to see him in Power Charge mode often if you don't grab them as soon as possible before he does.

The Hell's Army Leader

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.
  • 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."
  • Scarf of Asskicking: In both forms, it almost takes on the appearance of a Badass Cape.

    Julia Whitepearl
The Serene Grace

The Invention Boy

  • Bowties Are Cool: Wears one with his glasses and flat-cap to complete the nerdy look.
  • 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 only recently having 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

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: Complete with "POWER STONE ITEM SHOP" written across it multiple times.
  • 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.
  • Palette Swap: Of Julia.
  • Parasol of Pain: Much like Julia's, she can use hers to increase her attacking range, triple-jump, and glide through the air for great airborne manoeuvrability.
  • Power Gives You Wings: To the point that ALL that she got 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, she's one of only two characters 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: Has these going on around her nose.
