Justice Unlimited Nocturne-Kinetic Elimination Riders
Genius, badass, sex on legs, Sirknight Fangire
(hence "sex on legs"
)...and suffering from deep-seated acceptance issues
- Canon Immigrant: From KRV proper.
- Doing In the Wizard: A holdover from KRV, wherein the Fangire condition was explained via something known as "Fangire Nucleus/Neo-Mitochondrion Theory". Then tossed aside for the sake of Sanae and the Inoues getting to do what they please at the FangOreo's expense, and finally revived once more here. She's even got a graph for the cohesion of the theory.
- Genius Bruiser: "Some psychology here, a little pharmacology there..." ...naturally she Minored In Ass Kicking.
- Good Is Not Nice: Slips into this in Kenoko's Prelude, going so far as to Fated Circle her after one turn-down of recuperative assistance too many.
- Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: At current count, we're at Polymorphic Gunblade-swinging Paramilitary-commanding Warrior Therapist Slutbat.
- No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: No doubt Haruka's worst insecurity (born primarily of the presence of Maya and Sanae in KRV), to the point where it takes (in no particular order) Akebara, Kenoko, Wyll and Aelita, and Kivaara (using a semi-intravenous AI of Aya Brea) to Bright Slap her into shape this time around.
- Power Trio: Fulfills multiple positions within the FangOreo:
- As the Id: An incorrigible fetishist, and more recently revealed to be vengeful enough about Fangire affairs that she's more apt to just have a Rider War already and be done with it.
- As the Superego: Conflates her and her family's peace and prosperity with that of Tokyo, and strives to preserve it via JUNKER accordingly.
- As the Ego: Knows when to put a damper on her vices, and takes work and play only as seriously as they ought to be.
- Red Baron (with hints of The Butcher): Occasionally dispatches under the callsign "Grievous Whore".
- Causes some confusion if abbreviated to "GW" - Aelita tries this, and Ake's first thought is of Yukari instead.
The oreo in FangOreo (well, she's at the center, anyway), and Development & Pioneer's president.
- Canon Immigrant: From KRV proper.
- Mama Bear: Her apparent first reaction to Haru being endangered is to barrel through a shopping plaza on a perma-Buroon-mounted Machine Kivaa. As Kiva Emperor.
- Power Limiter: Kiva Emperor's "Mezzo Forte" regulators, ostensibly meant to prevent its sheer power from going all over the place.
- Power Trio: Fulfills multiple roles within the FangOreo:
- As the Id: Always appreciates a good cuddle.
- As the Ego: Keeps a cool head about in most situations. Counter to Haruka's Id.
- The Tease: Quite subtle about it compared to, say, Haruka. (Of course, having Kaoru on hand to proxy things might help a bit.)
JUNKER's R&D Department Head and general disco fiend and ass woman.
JUNKER's Trooper Commander and our resident Navy Joker. Delivers chocolates personally to her troopers.
- Apocalypse Maiden: Being a Joker is kinda supposed to mean Kaoru is liable to scrub the planet clean of life with kaijin should she be the last Undead standing (Class 3a to Class 4 on the Apocalypse How scale). Luckily JUNKER is apparently working on a facsimile to alleviate that...
- Canon Immigrant: From KRV proper.
- Most Common Super Power: Described off the bat as having "breasts that should be illegal."
- Power Trio: Fulfills multiple roles within the FangOreo:
- As the Ego: Counter to Haruka's Id, and reasonable enough about matters of the heart to co-opt her Superego.
- As the Superego: Knows her place as the Navy Joker and does her damnedest to stay above it.
Freshly de-aged and with a craving for gachapon-filled chocolate eggs, Aelita is JUNKER's Chief Instructor.
Smokes like a chimney, drinks like a fish. Runs the Lion's Pride Junkyard, and wants nothing to do with JUNKER. Unfortunately...
- Animal Motifs: The lion, obviously; it's used in most of the "episode names" she's been in so far.
- Badass Biker and Biker Babe
- Berserk Button: Go ahead. Imply that Tomoe might have shacked up with Asuka and Aoki.
- Or imply that she's a liability to the team.
- Break the Badass: On the other hand, if you want to terrify her... threaten to send her back to THI, who made her like this in the first place.
- Broken Bird: The lambasting that life gave her during the Void Hour Incident is shown to have left Kenoko emotionally wrecked. She's improving rapidly with exposure to a Rider team who aren't complete morons/hate her, but the Jade-Colored Glasses resurface around the legacy characters or when the Void Hour Incident is brought up, often as a bitter, sarcastic rant about how crappy it was.
- But Not Too Foreign: Being half-Irish.
- The Call Knows Where You Live: Well, Haruka does, at least.
- Canon Immigrant: From KRV proper, with the original player reinstated.
- Cursed with Awesome: Yes, Rider-2 is absurdly powerful... if you feel like risking the re-emergence of Super-Powered Evil Side "Nigo". Also, due to her Artificial Human nature, Kenoko is quite unaging... but her body will slowly shut down if she doesn't transform. Hilarity Ensues.
- Expansion Pack Past: Largely due to Kenoko getting virtually no screentime in KRV, and nobody wanting to talk to her anyway, her backstory is virtually nonexistent.
- Fridge Horror: Kenoko's image song is Rideback, by good old MELL. Which is all well and good, unless you look at the song as being from her perspective and in past tense.
- He Who Fights Monsters: Kenoko deals lethal damage at all times.
- Incurable Cough of Death and Blood from the Mouth: Due to refusing to transform into Rider-2. Expected to double as a Game-Breaking Injury if her sheet is anything to go by.
- Made of Iron: Almost literally, and this is essentially Kenoko's gimmick now, sharing it with Michelle.
- More Than Mind Control and Evil Feels Good: Nigo is strongly implied to be this, of the "Live out your repressed desires" kind of mind control. Kenoko's Motive Rant about her thoughts while she was Nigo and how it felt are almost Nightmare Fuel.
- DM'S NOTE: All that more chilling given all that wound up getting repressed in KRV core.
- It gets worse once Kenoko admits that it was Tomoe's voice she heard giving her orders, and she just wanted her lover to be happy... and worse still, given her new reveal that it felt "better than anything", and she's not sure what she'd do if that was taken away from her again. And then worse again when it turns out that Nigo's programming was, in fact, erased in the Void Incident, and that the version we see coming out is Kenoko slipping back into the role because she's that scared of it happening. In other words, Your Mind Makes It Real coupled with a pseudo-voluntary Face-Heel Turn.
- Most Common Super Power: Interesting version. Kenoko is actually relatively well-stacked, but she's also six feet tall, making her breasts look smaller than, say, Kaoru's. This is a holdover from KRV, where Kenoko was initially designed to be party face (which never happened due to the way that game was run), and thus had high Charisma and ranks of the Attractive and Bishoujou feats, though it rarely came up due to Axel feeling that oversexualising her would ruin the point. Kenoko also started RAC without this due to her body degrading from Phlebotinum Breakdown, but reverted to it after Yukari forced her into a henshin, causing her body to self-repair.
- Not a Morning Person: Apparently snapped back in sixty-odd years without Tomoe's "guiding influence". It's made worse by the fact that she can't have coffee anymore (see Weaksauce Weakness below).
- Retired Badass: Well, she tries her best, still gets in trouble from time to time, so you get things like...
- Red Baron: "The Lion", shortened from her older "The Lion of Gekkoukan".
- Smoking Is Cool: ... her Establishing Character Moment, which has her telling a robot to get off her junkyard because it's presence is against the rules, hitting it with a lead pipe almost as long as she is, tanking an explosion, punching it in half, and ignoring being set on fire long enough to chain her cigarette off it's burning corpse.
- Shell-Shocked Veteran: The longer the game runs, the more it shows just how wrecked Kenoko was by the Void Incident. The question is whether it manifests as depression or terrible bitterness.
- Weaksauce Weakness: To caffeine, which is potentially fatal. Used to be to alcohol, but some good Samaritan picked her up out of the gutter and altered her body to metabolize alcohol efficiently, ruining the suicide attempt, to her disgust.
- A cup of lemonade (well, Sprite) is sufficient to give her jitters on par with what a normal person expects out of espresso. We have yet to see if this results in Caffeine Bullet Time.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Repeatedly, due to her not giving a damn what she fights. Word of God - everyone else sees people in rubber suits; Kenoko sees targets trying to hurt her friends.
- Who Wants to Live Forever?: Kenoko was aiming for a Redemption Equals Death scenario via Phlebotinum Breakdown to make up for her turning on SEES.
with confidence issues.
- Asskicking Equals Authority: In her intro, she managed to take out a giant Yummy with a Mauve Shirt tier belt (Osu Trooper).
- Badass Normal: During the first two weeks in-game, she was the only vanilla human in the bunch. Everyone else was a Showaborg, an Orphenoch, a Fangire, a Worm, and in Kaoru's case an Undead.
- By the time week 3 rolled around, Kuuga and KB Den-O both had human users.
- Broken Pedestal: While at first glance Becca has proven she's quite skilled, Rebecca has outright admitted she only joined D&P because she needed a job and the only other place that would take her was a bakery.
- Competence Zone: She's outright stated she's scared she's outside it.
- Face-Heel Turn: When Rebecca is kidnapped by Tenpai, Tenpai managed to unintentionally convince Rebecca to join him.
- Fatal Flaw: A one-two-three punch of a missing sense of self-confidence, not getting any attention to the point of non-projecting, and an inferiority complex, all of which were exacerbated to the nth degree thanks to Rio training.
- Informed Flaw: Anger issues. Stated to be a problem for her before joining D&P, though it hasn't come up during the actual course of play.
- At least until we started to see her as Violent Emotion Decade. The name sounds like it's made of and for anger issues.
- Luminescent Blush
- Mauve Shirt: Started play as one and got promoted quickly.
- Not a Morning Person: Noted, but nowhere near Kenoko's tier of morning laziness. Case in point: Becca can get up under her own steam in the morning.
- The Spartan Way: D&P Los Angeles compensated for not having any available Rider-tier belts by putting their Riotroopers into Training from Hell.
Apparently FangOreo's (primarily Yukari and Kaoru's)
daughter, and Fangire Princess.
... a ninja or something?
BEST MUM EVER, having undergone a Showaborg conversion to get back at the monsters who took her husband away.
Half-Fangire daughter of now-deceased Baraen Yuriko, and surrogate daughter to Wyll Ascher... and professional gambler.
- Adrenaline Makeover: After she goes Cheetah Fangire for the first time, Ake reverts to her still-bloodstained (and other things not worth mentioning-stained) pit-fighting outfit and a JUNKER hoody.
- Broken Bird: Massive Foreshadowing of it, but it's decisive when she admits to Haru that she's not used to being treated as a person.
- Canon Immigrant: From Super Robot Wars G, with her original player at the helm.
- Fetish Fuel Station Attendant: Being Wyll's protege, Ake attempts (and thusfar succeeds) to invoke this trope.
- Fun T-Shirt: "I taught your girlfriend that thing you like."
- The Gambler: Complete with lucky coin she makes her decisions with.
- Headphones Equal Isolation: Averted; Akebara is quite outgoing. Of course, it's entirely possible that she's only wearing her headphones clipped to her breast pocket to draw attention to her, well, breasts.
- And then revealed to be a subversion when it turns out she's more isolated than anyone else in the cast.
- Legacy Character: Sort of - she's Wyll's adopted daughter and is carrying on with his Proto-Decade Driver, but she wants to avoid his legacy. His methods, on the other hand, she's somewhat liberal with.
- Little Miss Badass: Being Yuriko's daughter, it's probably genetic.
- One of Us: Get her started on Romance of the Three Kingdoms or Kamen Rider. Now try and shut her up.
- Self-Made Orphan: Sorta. Her mother died in childbirth, but her father was an abusive dick, and when he beats her bloody she wishes he was dead just as Wyll walks by...
- Take That: Appears to be one against KRV proper, via very dark twist on the rampant sex (or, as some of the fandom calls it, "whore lolis") that dominated that game.
- Confirmed for one with recent reveals.
- Un-Person: A sorta-kinda example. Akebara has so many layers of "mask" that she's completely unused to people referring to her as a person. Which is why Haru's treatment of her as "Ake" (instead of "breasts" like most of the rest of the cast) draws out such a strong emotional response.
- Weaksauce Weakness: Like Wyll before her, Ake is hypoglycemic.
- What Have I Become?: Played with. It initially looks like Ake bypasses two out of four Stages of Monster Grief, moving right to "Acceptance", but it's more that she went through Denial and Defiance simultaneously during the first few weeks (and her backstory), and Haruka really knows how to give someone a talking to.
- Half-Fangire Needs FN-TAU Badly: Akebara is hypermetabolic. Most Fangires can go for about two months without a shot of TAU (or life-force if you're still a bad not!vampire). Ake? Ten-ish minutes.
A mecha otaku dancing the fine line between Super Robot and Real Man.
Kenoko's best friend, and the resident Meta Guy
The cold, calculating Treasure Sniper.
A girl friend of Haru's, and a speedily repurposed medical intern.
Korin's slightly snarky bike, with an artistic eye for his "father's" craft.
A boy friend of Haru's and Mauve Shirt
A hair-triggered gent who CLEARLY doesn't know his own strength.
...Wait, when did Motoko Kusanagi
get a Rider Gear?
Youngest member of the Lukles clan... And nowhere near as lucky as his father or grandmother before him.
Holy crap a Kuuga who didn't learn his trade from being shot by Faiz.
- The Apprentice: Kouta is one of the only cast members with no battle experience, though it's been implied he's not unused to hand-to-hand combat. Recently apprenticed himself to Kenoko for learning about how to use his weapons.
- Black Eyes Take Warning: When the threat of Black-Eyes Ultimate is referenced, Kouta's eyes have a tendency to appear black, though it's supposedly just a trick of the light.
- For Happiness: Variation - much of Kouta's sense of justice comes from not doing things you realize you'll regret looking back on it.
- Heroic Bystander / Right Man Inthe Wrong Place: This is how Kouta ended up getting the Kuuga belt in the first place.
- Noodle Incident: Count the Noodles! Implements leading to his pre-JUNKER unemployment apparently include a slushie machine, a pack of microwaveable fried chicken, a rubber-band ball, and all of Aisle 6.
- Rookie Red Rider: Because the events of Hour of the Void took place nearly forty years before he was born, Kouta is one of the only cast members not jaded about it. He also doesn't know much about how JUNKER operates as a result.
Lemony-fresh proprietor of the resident Good Guy Bar
, Irish Mist, and now R&D lackey (confined to such due to causing a mess as Mahjong Rider Tenpai
). Seems significantly less of a Jerk Ass
than his KRV incarnation.
- Addiction Displacement and Smoking Is Cool: Still with the lemongrass habit, but now with a pipe.
- It's cigarettes again in the flashbacks.
- Blessed with Suck: How'd you like to never be able to forget anything in your whole life? (Type 5)
- Broken Ace: A type-2, referred to as such in his backstory. It's intentionally up in the air as to whether he's a Byronic Hero, Alex's Big Bad Friend or Broken Pedestal, a Fallen Hero, or just a dick, though he's definitely a lot nicer now than he was in KRV.
- Canon Immigrant: From KRV proper.
- Character Development: From Brilliant but Lazy Manipulative Bastard Knight in Sour Armor in KRV to Tall, Dark and Snarky, Badass Bookworm Genius Bruiser. Assumably this is due to his extended contact with Aelita.
- Cool Old Guy: Or so it appeared, though he doesn't seem to be old anymore...
- Even the Girls Want Her: Normally not worth noting in an Everyone Is Bi-slash-Cast Full of Gay setting, but even Kenoko is rapidly smit with "her" pretty face. Why? 34 Charisma, 5 ranks of the Bishoujo feat, and 3 ranks of the Distracting Looks feat.
- Failure Knight: Towards Aelita, in an interesting example where his initial failure was her death.
- Fun T-Shirt: In the flashbacks, to go with Aelita's - Wyll's reads "We Are The Writing On Your Wall", a reference to the London Street Commune movement and the graffiti on the wall of the building, 144 Piccadilly, that they were evicted from.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Alex, natch.
- Karma Houdini: An arguable example, given his Jerk Ass attitude in KRV and the fact that he somehow ended up being a Retired Badass Cool Old Guy on adequate terms with JUNKER's leadership (well, Haruka at least)... but then you have to remember his near-constant state of Be All My Sins Remembered. He might have houdini'd out of the setting's karma, but not his own.
- Oral Fixation: Always seems to have something in his mouth - usually sucking the juice out of skinned lemons.
- Retired Badass: Having given away his first Driver to Alex in KRV, retired from Riders Sans Frontieres due to age, and passed on his second Driver to Akebara. See Aelita's entry for badass credentials.
- And then un-retired in the guise of Tenpai, and apparently T2 Xtreme.
- ‹bermensch: With the non-holdovers from KRV as his Last Man. Ake refers to him as this in-character.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: Type 2 with Alex.
- Waif-Fu: Despite being his fighting style for all of KRV, Wyll actually averts it with Proto-DCD and Tenpai.
As Mahjong Rider Tenpai:
A ten-year-old seemingly-Emotionless Girl
wearing Elegant Gothic Lolita
picked up by Xander in an early mini-arc. Actually far younger and far more important to Wyll's seemingly eternal youth, being a recently-constructed Artificial (but not Trial) Undead.
- Child Prodigy: Shows shades of it - such as absorbing virtually all the Shinkenger-related information in a matter of minutes. All while demanding fortune cookies. Which she doesn't know how to eat properly.
- Elegant Gothic Lolita
- Innocent Prodigy: On the one hand, Lexi's guardian trusts her enough to wander about on her own and make her own decisions. On the other hand, she tends to lock people into an Infinite Why Loop and doesn't seem to have a solid concept of friendship, and still acts childish (she drinks her soda with a sippy-straw and attaches herself to Korin like a little sister).
- Opposite-Sex Clone: Of Vincent, genetic modification into an Undead notwithstanding. This explains why they share hair and eye colour.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Except apparently not, since she's relaxed and kinda shy.
- Red Herring: Initially spelled "Leksi" to divert players' attention from her via the phonetic spelling. But then Lexi was never mentioned by name when operating as Tenpai's informant, so...
- Translation Convention: According to Word of Player, Lexi speaks entirely in Keigo.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She does.
- Zettai Ryouiki: At Grade A, having two of the components needed for Grade S (socks and skirt, well, dress, and hair) but lacking the Tsundere personality to go with it.
An amnesiac (and half-scrambled, as originally found) Showaborg, and the newest addition to Lion Squadron.
Tachibana Heavy Industries / Strike Against Uncooperative Lifeform
THI's CEO. Doesn't do cake.
THI's Chairwoman of the Board.
Is apparently FABULOUS.
THI's Orphenoch security chief, looking to break free from her family legacy.
SAUL R&D head, sewer of body pillows, and probably a couple other creepy things.
An apparent subordinate of Henne's, and a rush-job Showaborg.
Gard Kreuger/Meteor Dopant
Unseen so far, but apparently NOT a Char Clone
Zeru Jupit and Juno Hera/Kamen Rider Blitz
Unseen so far, but apparently NOT Double.
Zeru and Juno's Tropes
Athle Arcadia/Kamen Rider Trinity
Apparently NOT Accel.
Blood Keel/Kamen Rider Hydra
Apparently NOT Eternal. Definitely NOT Robo-Jesus.
Apparently looking to make it big with her Prince, even if it means toying with his plans.
International Characters (America)
One of the two arrivals from America for All Riders. Not actually a Kamen Rider, but has powers like one all the same.
Lydia's partner and fellow Cure. She's energetic, bouncy, and barring Aelita the best hacker in game.
- American Accents: Averted, both she and Lydia speak perfect Japanese.
- Canon Immigrant: From /m/quest, just like Lydia.
- Ethical Slut: Tricia's basically a younger Haruka in this regard. She was in game for about three hours by the time she'd snared both Lydia and Pacifica.
- Master of Illusion: Tricia's fighting style is almost entirely support-driven and based around this.
- Most Common Superpower: Not quite as much as Lydia, but she's still one of the most attractive cast members, totally by design.
- Odd Couple: As referenced above, it's unclear exactly how two girls of such exceedingly different personalities and tastes became such fast friends.
- Omniscient Database: Both averted and played straight - while Tricia can't simply look up where someone like the villain is hiding out without extensive time and effort, her enormous Gather Information is such that she can effectively read people's wiki pages upon meeting them.
- Playboy Bunny: According to Leo, in fact, it was her idea.
- Swiss Army Appendage: The explanation for her Improvised Tools feat.
- Sword and Sorceress: The sorcerer half, with Lydia as the sword.
- Techno Wizard / Technopath: Thanks to Leo's many alterations and upgrades to her mind, she's capable of tracking down nearly any information and breaking into nearly any database. She seems to prefer an Unusual User Interface not unlike the Gaia Library.
Layered Electronic Organism "Leo"
The nanite colony responsible for giving Lydia and Tricia their powers.
- Canon Immigrant: from Viewtiful Joe. Hardly the first to come straight out of a work, but definitely the first wholesale lifting of a non-RP character.
- Genius Bruiser: He knew the toku genre well enough to know that scrawny wimpy kids would be at a disadvantage, even with super-powered bug suits. Time will tell whether this equates with him Taking A Level In Badass.
- Hot-Blooded: Not the biggest example of one you'll ever meet, especially with Silvia being who-knows-where, but one nonetheless.
- Mr. Fixit: At least in the sense that he applied his knowledge to his love of the toku genre (see Otaku trope below), and ended up doing a whole lot of good with it.
- Otaku: of the toku genre. In fact, so much so, that when he found some schematics at Silvia's house, he Jumped At The Non-Existent Call and built a functional henshin device with them.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: One of the few things that didn't entirely carry over from canon Joe, at the writer's request.
- The only place where the two of them might be on the same intellectual footing is business sense, as seen in his introduction.
International Characters (East Asia)
Thailand's Super Sentai
pastiche, and would-be victims of corporate sabotage at All-Riders.
The Sport Rangers' Tropes:
China's half-Rider, half-Sentai corps, seemingly with a bone to pick with the Sport Rangers.
The Armor Heroes' Tropes:
Adriel Deleron / RayDragonButt Monkey
of Korea's "Special Effect Trooper Rayforce". Befriended by JUNKER and promptly promoted to Hibiki.
Independents, Grunts & Bystanders
One of Rebecca's ZECTroopers (and later BirthTrooper 7
). Made queasy by Lucky Clover busts
- Power Trio: Part of Jackpot Squadron, along with Gary and Xander.
Zu-Gara-Da "Gary" Oku
Another of Rebecca's subordinates (and later GetterTrooper 7
). Set the "Grongi = Bad Cockney" precedent the campaign is following.
- Fake Brit: Bad Cockney when Haken is playing him, and better Cockney (complete with Rhyming Slang) when Axel is playing him (though Axel is Australian, so he's closer to Real Brit than anyone except Raven, who is actually British).
- Power Trio: Part of Jackpot Squadron, along with Xander and Akemi.
Squad leader and wheelman of 10th ZECT. His childishness is matched only by his competence.
Backup barman (now owner) at the Irish Mist. Takes the payments Wyll won't.
A vigilante Wolf Orphenoch with a brutal streak. Is actually Alex on the off-chance that he gets sufficiently pissed off.
Just some limey fellow. Who's sometimes possessed by ex-Ryuga Arisato Miki.
Just some hyperactive spirit with a Rider Gear. Considering the Gear, this is probably bad news.
Stuart Seacreep / Rider-1
Kenoko's beleaguered next-in-command from the Crystal Fire days.
Fugitives from a dark future, who apparently think Becca is royalty.
Ace and Sieg's Tropes:
Currently operating just
outside of JUNKER jurisdiction as one of Riderdom's most reviled belts.
- Jumped at the Call: Given some of the other personality traits that he has, no one should be surprised by his reaction to being offered the Masked Rider belt for no reason that's apparent to him.
- Hot-Blooded: Given that he's based off of Anime Tenchou, a.k.a. the hat-wearing fellow seen here, does this really come as a surprise?
- Large Ham: Once again, he has enough energy in his thoughts, words, and actions for at least two other people, thanks to his personality template. See the above link.
- For example, he has transformed or almost transformed when JUNKER higher-ups haven't wanted him to do so on two separate occasions. One of those times was almost immediately after being granted his belt.
- Ake will never be amused by him. Ever.
- Lethal Joke Character: There's a slight possibility of things panning out this way. Haruka seems to think it will.
- Otaku: Specifically, towards Rider-tech. It's hard to tell whether he's more or less of one than Joe.
- Shout-Out: To Anime Tenchou, the man who works behind the counter of a Japanese equivalent to a bookstore, and always tries to make Konata buy stuff.
A macabre mix of Gedoushuu
, Void Hour-facsimile Hoppers
with Gaia Memory AI cores, and goodness knows what else.
The SNATCHERs' Tropes:
- Make Wrong What Once Went Right: This new breed of SHOCKER goons hails from the KRV timeline as it was "supposed" to progress (so far as Ace and Sieg know), but couldn't invade Void Hour to ensure their own existence due to a TSPD lockdown.
Traditionalist Neo-Fangires with a bone to pick against The Unmasqued World
that the Void Hour vets have brought about between their prior service and DevPio's circulation of FN-TAU. Especially pissed off at Yukari for anything from weaning Fangires off other sentients to not rolling over and being some noodle rapist's doll-bride
Pro-humanity terrorists wielding the Z-series Gaia Memories pioneered by the Ikaruga Trust. Pegged as all but one and the same, given recent events.
Terra Geist's Tropes:
Hardboiled Pink Lemonade
The Lemon half of the Counterfeit Riders.
The Pink half of the Counterfeit Riders.
Kenoko Ni'Chulainn / Rider-2
SHOCKER's ace enforcer, and one of the few things that can stymie the Counterfeit Riders in singular combat.
