Sands of Destruction characters; some tropes will either apply to the anime , manga or video game, so read at your own risk.
World Destruction Committee
The main character of Sands of Destruction. Kyrie believes he is a normal human being and lives life in an isolated area where both humans and Ferals are treated equally. However, there is more than meets the eye as he has the power to destroy the world. Because of this he is forced to leave his hometown and journey with Morte, who wants to use him to destroy the world.
All Men are Perverts: Subverted as the one episode where he had the chance to look up Morteí skirt because it had a huge tear in it and was getting bigger for every movement she made. Instead, he tried the entire episode trying to sew it back together instead of commenting on the rip. It does not go well...
Apologizes a Lot: All versions of him have him apologizing whether it's to his friends or enemies. However, in the video game, it becomes a quip that he apologizes even if it isn't his fault.
Agan: Apologizing to your own murderer. That's a first.
Angst? What Angst?: In the video game, destroying a village doesnít seem to bother him. However this becomes subverted as time goes on in the game.
The Atoner: In the manga, his powers went out of control and he ended up killing everyone in a village as a result. He leaves Morte in order to find a way to control his powers.
Beware the Nice OnesandI Feel Angry: No matter how the Ferals treat him or what they do, Kyrie generally has the inability to get angry. However, this is subverted in the manga as when he finally does snap at Morte, it shocks everyone.
Bishounen: More in the video game as in the anime, he's fits the moe category.
Cuteness Proximity: In the manga, he squeals at seeing Toppi for the first time. In the video game, he has a similar experience as he continues to call Toppi a teddy bear every now and then. Subverted in the anime where he's freaked out over Toppi's appearance.
Death Seeker: In the video game, after destroying the Sky Gaol, he asks Naja to kill him.
Distress Ball: Anime counterpart tends to get himself in situations that could get him killed.
Distressed Dude: No matter if itís the anime, manga or video game, Kyrie will always get captured. Up to eleven in the anime where every other episode he gets captured and has to wait for his teammates to think of a plan to escape the Ferals.
Doomed Hometown: In the manga and the video game. It doesnít say what his hometown is in the anime though but judging from the memory lane episode, it was obvious that he was searching for work because something happened to it.
Fragile Speedster: In the video game, which is odd because heís the main character. All of his support moves are healing and his offensive special moves are all statue moves. Also, he does the least damage but makes up with incredible accuracy.
Go-Go Enslavement: Kind of a subversion but in one episode in the anime where he, Morte and Toppi were captured, he was the only one that changed who had an outfit change when he was working in the kitchen.
In the game, he was also perfectly willing to accept the Beastmen as humanity's rightful rulers. This says as much about his personality as it says about the fact that Ursa Rex was a kind and benevolent ruler to the humans under his command.
His video game counterpart is a combination of the two and while he really is a happy person, the idea of destroying the world does get to him eventually and then when he kills more people because of his powers, he falls into a state of despair and asks Naja to kill him.
I Just Want to be Normal: He complains about this in the anime but isnít taken seriously (since he has control over his power) but played straight in the manga.
The Messiah: Many of the characters state that because of him, they have hope for humans and Ferals. He is also the only hope in convincing Morte to change her mind.
Dark Messiah: Can also be seen as this too because Morte wants him to destroy the world instead of saving it. However, Kyrie's too nice to actually be one.
Moe: More so in the anime and manga than the video game.
Morality Pet/Morality Chain: Mainly to Morte but applies to the whole group. In the manga, after he gets into a fight with Morte, the group splits up.
Names to Run Away From Really Fast: In the video game, he's given the name "Destruct" when he "joins" the World Destruction Committee. Naturally, whenever someone sees Kyrie, they're not convinced that his title doesn't match him at all.
Stepford Smiler: In the manga, after killing an entire village with his powers, he is forced to put on a smile while in the video game, the longer it takes to control his power, the sadder he gets, so he ends up being Type A. This is also true in the video game as time goes on but subverted in the anime.
Supreme Chef: In the anime and is often the one that cooks for the group, and even impresses the prisoners in the jail where the Committee was being held with his skill. In the game, his special moves are all based around cooking. Even his knife is considered a cooking utensil for battle.
Wide-Eyed Idealist: Although in the anime he starts out fairly world-weary. Their journey across the world changes this. Played straight in the video game where he thinks that everyone has a chance to get along from the start but it slowly dies away as the game goes on.
Woobie Destroyer of Worlds: Played with as he does have the power to destroy it. Then again, in the anime when he was at the very end, he did become the very thing that the Salvation Committee tried to prevent.
Wrong Genre Savvy: In the video game, heís the only person that believes that humans and Ferals can live together. Boy is he wrong. This is subverted in the anime where Kyrie proves that the world can live with humans and Ferals and in this case, Morte is in the wrong.
A sixteen year old girl with a troubled past and wants to destroy the world because of it. She was originally the only member of the World Destruction Committee (anime wise) until she encountered Kyrie and found out he had the power to destroy the world. With him by her side, she sets her sight of destroying the discrimination in the world.
Broken Bird: In the anime. Subverted in the video game.
Crutch Character: In the video game, she starts out at higher level than Kyrie and is your primary damage dealer after Taupy. Halfway through the game, you probably will rely on Flurry attacks more, and since hers can only do 7 hits in total, she arguably becomes the least useful character in combat.
Defrosting Ice Queen: In the anime where she opens up to Kyrie and Toppi. In the video game, it takes longer to open up to the group. Subverted in the manga.
Flat Character: In the video game where her actions arenít explained. Lampshaded when she complains nothing happens to her in the Depths of Memory.
Ironically, this is subverted to hell and back in the anime because she's the first one to be affected by the Depths of Memories and is the only character that wanted to remain there because she would rather live in a time of happiness instead of knowing the future.
Hair-Trigger Temper: In all versions. Played for laughs in the anime and in the video game, its played for laughs most of the time. However, in the manga, it's considered a deconstruction as by snapping at Kyrie of all people, this prompts him to leave the group with Toppi and Naja following him.
Kick the Morality Pet: In the manga she snaps at Kyrie after he snaps at her and then announcing that he's going to turn himself into the World Salvation Committee. She attacks him in a fit of rage but Toppi and Naja stop her thus Kyrie proves his point.
Wrong Genre Savvy: In the anime because despite her insistence that beastmen and humans cannot live together, Kyrie keeps seeing multiple moments where beast men are trying to change the world for the better and humans falling in love with beastmen. Subverted in the video game where she proves to be right on most occasions.
Berserk Button: Don't call him a teddy bear. The only person that has been able to live up to this day who called him one is Kyrie. However, in the anime, everyone calls him one and it pisses him off, but never does anything about it.
Bodyguard Crush: While not a crush, he acts as Kyrieís royal bodyguard. His relationship with Kyrie can be questioned in the manga.
Declaration of Protection: Toward Kyrie. It is a "It's Just that Simple" case in the anime and video game. However, both of these later become the "complicated" type because of Kyrie's status of being able to destroy the world.
Ensemble Darkhorse: He's so popular in Japan that he appears as a summon in Phantasy Star Zero.
Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: With his wife. He barely reaches three-feet height, while his wife is around two stories tall.
Verbal Tic: Kuma in the Japanese version or Bear-o in some translations of the English version.
In the game and manga, Agan is a close friend to Morte, having been in the Golden Lions with her. In the anime, Agan is just a smuggler unaffiliated with the Golden Lions, simply running into Morte, Kyrie, and Toppy through chance. Either way, he often assists the heroes, either for free or a price.
Does This Remind You of Anything?: When Agan is captured, you can hear Rajiv beating him with a whip trying to get him to "submit". Naja leaves the area because he's disgusted. Rajiv then tries to break him by telling him that members of the Golden Lions betrayed him and got him captured because they're all selfish bastards. When Agan refuses to submit though, Rajiv then threatens him to use something that would hurt him beyond imagination. Umm,that sounds like something else...
Houseboat Hero: In the anime. Heíll get off it every now and then but every time Kyrieís group meets him, heís always on a boat.
La Rťsistance: In the video game, he has his own team called the Golden Lions until he got captured and was forced to join the World Destruction committee. In the anime, he helps the Golden Lions but doesn't get involved with the actual battles like in the game.
Momma's Boy: Is hinted to be one in the video game to the point that he really doesn't want his mother involved with what he's doing.
My Name Is Inigo Montoya: One of his early lines (and his first Quip) in the video game is arguably a parody of this trope.
Unlucky Childhood Friend: In the video game. In the anime though, itís even worse as Morte and him arenít even childhood friends.
Whip It Good: Video game only as he does not carry a weapon at all in the anime or manga.
X Marks the Hero: A cross shaped mark on the left side of his face. Subverted in the anime.
A dragon Feral who has lived for over 300 years. Being the last of her kind, Rhi'a desires to see the end of the world per to dragon tradition. Despite being calm in the game, in the anime she's prone to becoming trigger happy.
A half-human, half-beastman born to the previous Lupus Rex and a human woman, which earns him a large amount of scorn and racism; how racist changes in all three formats. Very analytical and competent, Naja is the main pursuer to the World Destruction Committee.
Batman-Gambit: In the anime, he does this to find the main characters.
Friendly Enemy: In the anime, where he intends to win the Destruct Code from Morte via gambling and is always trying to find a compromise compared to Rhia who just wants to shoot Morte dead.
Half-Human Hybrid: Stated in the game that he's the son of the previous Lupus Rex and a human woman.
Half-Breed Discrimination: No one lets him forget he's a half-breed because of this. Many of his peers at work insult him due to the standing of humans as slaves, mocking that his blood or Naja himself smells of human and even treating him terribly despite his possibly high rank. Rajiv, who Naja works under, insults Naja almost immediately after the game starts and calls him out for his half-breed species in the manga. In the anime, it doesn't even seem like the boss of the entire World Salvation Committee likes Naja.
Who Would Be Stupid Enough: In the anime, he tends to fall for the stupidest things. One episode comes to mind where he talks to this robot over again telling it that he and Rhia are part of the World Salvation Committee (which the robot messes up because Alligator Lord did not want them interfering with his plans.) Naturally, Rhia is seen as the smarter one of the two in this situation where using violence actually got her somewhere.
