    Selectors 

Selectors are chosen female card players who compete with each other through the card game called WIXOSS. Along with them are their respective LRIGs, talking cards who can grant them their wishes by winning battles and fulfilling other requirements. By fulfilling all of these, they become Eternal Girls.

Ruko Kominato

Voiced by: Ai Kakuma

  • Blood Knight: Starts to realize that she really enjoys Selector battles. She feels terrible about it, as she doesn't want to get in the way of other Selectors' wishes since she doesn't have a wish herself. She starts to enjoy it again in her match with Iona in Episode 7.
  • Curbstomp Battle: She completely takes down Akira.
  • Friendless Background: Prior to meeting Yuzuki, Kazuki, and Hitoe, she never made any friends nor did she ever care to.
  • Hair Decorations: A red diamond-shaped scrunchie which she uses to tie a side ponytail. This is substituted by a light blue scrunchie later in the series.
  • Heroic BSOD: After learning the dark nature of the card game and the pain of other Selectors, she can't help but think and cry about them. Not to mention that she has lost two of her friends because of the game.
  • Parental Abandonment: Her mother was scared of Ruko's behavior.
  • Third-Person Person
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: According to her mother.
  • Worthy Opponent: For Iona.

Yuzuki Kurebayashi

Voiced by: Ayane Sakura

General Tropes

  • Brother-Sister Incest / Twincest: Her wish. This has apparently been something going on since elementary school.
  • Expy: Of Sayaka Miki. Like Sayaka, Yuzuki is the perky best friend of the rather meek lead, has to struggle with unreciprocated romantic feelings, and is the first example shown of what eventually will happen to the girls.
  • Grand Theft Me: Her grand prize for becoming an Eternal Girl? Becoming a LRIG while Hanayo takes over her body.
  • Hime Cut
  • Hot-Blooded
  • Irony: She battled green Selectors and beat them to become an Eternal Girl. She ends up being a LRIG for Hitoe, who is a former green Selector.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Her usual strategy.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: She's obsessed with her brother so much that she hunts down other Selectors and severes her ties with Ruko.
  • Meaningful Name: The first character of her last name can be read as "deep red."
  • Polar Opposite Twins: She's more emotional than her brother, Kazuki.

Tropes related to her as a LRIG

Hitoe Uemura

Voiced by: Ai Kayano

  • Cute Bookworm: Very adorable and one of her favorite places was the library.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: She has a green card deck. Following her loss to Iona, she loses this along with Midoriko. A few episodes later, her mother buys her a new red deck that contains Yuzuki as her new LRIG.
  • Expy: Of Yomi Takanashi, especially the part where they lost all of their friends mid-season. They get better in the end.
  • Friendless Background: Before meeting Ruko and Yuzuki, she had great difficulty making friends since she had recently moved to Tokyo and was a Shrinking Violet.
    • After losing her third game, her wish to make friends becomes tainted in the form of painful shocks whenever someone with any kind of positive affections touches her, meaning she will never make any friends forever, but this gets reversed after episode 12.
      • Interestingly, she was able to be touched multiple times by Ruko without any negative effects after Yuzuki became her LRIG, meaning that her wish being tainted was likely undone.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Her wish. After meeting Ruko and Yuzuki, her wish was fulfilled.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: After she loses her rights as a selector, she loses all her memories of her time playing WIXOSS. She gets better in the end of first season.
  • Meganekko
  • Mind Rape: After losing three games, she loses all her memories of her friendship with Ruko and Yuzuki, and becomes more timid and socially anxious than ever, to the extent that she finds just walking in a crowded area mind-numbingly terrifying.
  • Mini-Boss: She's the last opponent Ruko fights before Iona.
  • She's Back: After receiving a new red deck with Yuzuki as her LRIG, she becomes a Selector again. She also regains her memories after battling Ruko again.
  • Shrinking Violet
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: In a sense, to Midoriko's (and later Ruko's) Tomboy.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Manages to reach the finals of Iona's tournament before losing to Ruko again.

Akira Aoi

Voiced by: Chinatsu Akasaki

  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing
  • Broken Pedestal: She has gone from a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing idol girl to a would-be Cute and Psycho murderer.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Her strategy to have her wish fulfilled and become an Eternal Girl more quickly. She seeks less experienced Selectors like Yuzuki and Ruko and mind rapes them with her LRIG to gain cheap victories. Inverted in the case of the latter as Ruko beats her easily.
  • Cute and Psycho
  • Driven by Envy: She hates Iona so much that it costs her idol career and and puts her into a downward spiral.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She's very jealous of Iona to the point that her innermost wish is to take Iona down.
  • In-Series Nickname: Aki-Lucky, which doubles as her Catch Phrase.
  • Irony: After Ruko is brought by her classmates to her studio, she tells them to go home and calls them "uglies". She turned herself into one later on.
  • Knife Nut: And would really like to use it to carve up Ruko, Yuzuki, and Iona's faces to match hers.
  • Manipulative Bitch: To the point where she goes to Ruko's school and "requests" her classmates to take Ruko to her studio.
  • Meaningful Name: Her surname means blue.
  • No Sympathy: Aki is not bothered by the fact that Hitoe is forever unable to feel any love or Iona's near murder of a Selector.
    • Lack of Empathy: She's not even bothered that she was the one who caused that murder.
  • Mind Rape: How she gets easy wins. She commands Piriluk to read her opponents' wish and taunts them about it.
  • Unreliable Expositor: Before her battle with Ruko, Akira tells her that Iona gave an ill Selector her third loss, tainting her wish and possibly killing her in the process. It is revealed by Iona's LRIG Urisu that Akira was the one who did all that, with Iona giving that girl her second loss beforehand.
  • Scars Are Forever: She deliberately cuts herself in the face with a knife after losing to Iona.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Being a very popular idol means people will rarely think she's actually a jerk.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Starts in episode 6 and doesn't really stop.
  • White Mask of Doom: Following her third loss from Iona, she starts wearing one to hide the horrible glowing scar on her face.

Iona Urazoe

Voiced by: Asami Seto

  • Affably Evil: Not as villainous as Akira or her own LRIG Ulith. Averted in S1's final episode.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Before their rematch, she calls Ruko "Ru", the same nickname Tama calls her.
  • Blood Knight: And apparently, her being a popular idol matters nothing to her at all.
  • Double Entendre: Lashes out some of this on Ruko in their battles.
  • Eternal Recurrence: She is implied to have been a Selector and a LRIG a number of times.
  • Final Boss: In the first season.
  • Kick the Dog: Iona essentially killed a girl who was on her last legs by beating her in a WIXOSS battle and tainting the girl's wish. If Akira's testimony is any indication, it wasn't that hard to tell the girl was terribly sick, but Iona let her die anyway without regrets. In reality, she gave that girl her second loss before Akira put her out of her misery.
    • She is also responsible for giving Hitoe's third loss and subsequently tainting her wish of making friends.
  • Only the Chosen May Wield: Her wish. In a twist, she is looking for a Selector who is worthy enough to wield her. As in, when she becomes a LRIG, that Selector will own her. She has chosen Ruko and she gets her wish in the the first season's finale.
  • Only Sane Woman: At first, she seems to be only one who doesn't have any psychological problems other than being a Blood Knight.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: Her school uniform has this.
  • Psychotic Smirk: She pulls quite a few during her battle with Ruko in episode 12.
  • The Stoic
  • Tall, Dark and Bishoujo
  • Victorious Loser: She loses her battle against Ruko, but since Tama refuses to fulfill Ruko's wish, her wish to be Ruko's LRIG is granted instead.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Same with Akira.

Chiyori

Voiced by: Mako Morino

    LRIGs 

LRIGs are talking cards and the Selectors' main companions. Only the Selectors can hear them and like them, they are all females. They have the ability to grant them their wishes but first, they must complete certain conditions.

However, they are not allowed to tell their Selectors the full details of the card game, especially the Eternal Girl part. In fact, they are the Eternal Girls. Eternal Girls are former Selectors who managed to win their battles and fulfill all the the requirements of becoming one. Once they ascend to the Eternal Girl ritual, their LRIGs takes over their bodies and their wishes. Later, they themselves become LRIGs and they are sent to would-be Selectors. This cycle continues in order for the world of WIXOSS to exist.
