    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. Should they lose three times, their wishes get reversed and their LRIGs are taken away from them.
  • Adults Are Useless/Adult Fear: The parents (particularly mothers) of the main Selectors are either one to a degree, such as Ruuko's mom abandoning her, Hitoe's mom becoming worried about her daughter's well-being during the period when Hitoe's wish was tainted, and Akira being an ungrateful child to her own mom.
  • Becoming the Genie: The ultimate fate of the winning Selectors. Her LRIG will take over her body and she herself will become a LRIG. Basically, it's Fate Worse Than Death.
  • Blood Knight: Inevitable to some.
  • The Chosen One: Once a girl meets her LRIG for the first time, she becomes a Selector.
  • Dangerous Workplace: Most of the Selector battles take place in unusual and unsafe areas, such as dark alleys and nearby construction sites. This is mainly because their game will not count when people not aware of the game interrupt it, which is very easy to do in more public areas. Not that it isn't impossible to be interrupted in construction sites, though.
  • Driven to Madness: Apparently, the card game can lead the Selectors to their obsession of having to seek and battle others just so they can fulfill their innermost wishes. Of course, this has cost them everyone and everything around them, which later would be their downfall. Akira and Yuzuki are the most notable ones.
  • Estrogen Brigade: An In-Universe example. While the card game is targeted towards females, there are male players. However, only the females can become Selectors.
  • Foil: Some of the relationships between Selectors and LRIGs have this.
  • A Girl And Her X: To LRIG's X.
  • Heads I Win, Tails You Lose: When a Selector loses her three battles, she loses her LRIG and her right as a Selector, as well as her wish getting reversed. When a Selector fulfills all conditions to become an Eternal Girl, she becomes a LRIG and her now-former LRIG owns her wish and her body.
  • Power Trio: Ruuko, Yuzuki, and Hitoe in Infected. Chiyori takes Yuzuki's place in Spread.
  • There Are No Therapists: The main selectors (sans Chiyori, for now) have certain disorders that they want to be solved by the card game:

A Na´ve Newcomer to the card game with no wish to desire at first. She has a white card deck with Tama as her LRIG.
  • 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 Infected episode 7.
  • Curbstomp Battle: She completely takes down Akira in their first battle.

  • Didn't See That Coming: Her reaction when she enters Mayu's white room just after her Eternal Girl ritual.
  • Does Not Like Men: Subverted. The reason she avoids boys who try to date her is because of her love for her brother.
  • Dude Magnet: Used to be this but rejects her suitors due to th reason above.
  • 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.

  • Bare Your Midriff
  • Despair Event Horizon: Almost crosses this. After becoming Hitoe's LRIG, she attempts to motivate her to win her battles so she can hijack her body and reunite with Kazuki.

Hitoe Uemura

Voiced by: Ai Kayano (Japanese), Tia Ballard (English)

A shy girl who has transferred to Tokyo and her wish is to have friends. She befriends Ruuko and Yuzuki. She has a green card deck with Midoriko as her LRIG.
  • Bound and Gagged: By Akira near the end of Spread's Episode 6.
  • 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.
  • Determinator: After her wish is tainted, she is emotionally crippled and amnesiac, and simply being touched by her friend caused her intense pain. However, becoming a Selector again with Yuzuki as her LRIG helped her to move forward. Despite her curse, she pushed herself harder and harder, and her determination finally paid off, allowing her to undo her reversed wish by the sheer power of her will.
  • Emotionless Girl: Strangely becomes this for a bit after she regains her Selector rights.
  • Expy: Of Yomi Takanashi, especially the part where they lost all of their friends mid-season. They get better in the end.
    • Also of Mami Tomoe, as she's a lonely girl who becomes the first casualty. Well, for a given value of casualty.
  • Friendless Background: Before meeting Ruuko 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 Infected's episode 12.
    • Interestingly, she was able to be touched multiple times by Ruuko without any negative effects after Yuzuki became her LRIG, meaning that her wish being tainted was likely undone.
    • Turns out that she is not exactly friendless from the start. She has two friends before moving to Tokyo but she has difficulties getting one in her new location.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Her wish. After meeting Ruuko and Yuzuki, her wish was fulfilled.

  • Mini-Boss: She's the last opponent Ruuko fights before Iona.
  • Not Afraid of You Anymore: Stands up for herself against Akira while declaring that she will protect Ruuko in Spread. It doesn't end well as Akira kidnaps her.
  • Pet the Dog: In Spread, she and Yuzuki are this for Ruuko.
  • 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 Ruuko again.
  • Shrinking Violet
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: In a sense, to Midoriko's (and later Ruuko's) Tomboy.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Manages to reach the finals of Iona's tournament before losing to Ruuko again.

Akira Aoi

Voiced by: Chinatsu Akasaki (Japanese), Jamie Marchi (English)

A cute but conniving girl who wants to be the center of attention until Iona arrives. Her wish is to ruin Iona's life. She has a blue card deck with Piriluk as her LRIG.
  • 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.
    • And again in Spread when Ulith appears to be done with her.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: She abruptly disappears from the plot late in Spread. In the last episode, only a few magazine pictures of her are seen.
  • Combat Pragmatist: She is not above destabilizing psychologically her opponents if it helps her to win, and is remorseless in doing so.
  • The Corruptible: She wasn't very sane from the get-go, but after getting her scar, she became extremely psychotic and fragile. It is then that Ulith began to corrupt her, plunging her even deeper into madness.
  • 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 Ruuko and mind rapes them with her LRIG to gain cheap victories. Inverted in the case of the latter as Ruuko beats her easily.
  • Cute and Psycho: Beneath her angelic face is hidden a disgusting demon. It only gets worse in Spread.
  • The Dog Bites Back: After realizing that she was a mere tool for Ulith and not her lover, Akira stabs her with a pen.
  • The Dragon: For Ulith in Spread.
  • Driven by Envy: She hates Iona so much that it costs her idol career and and puts her into a downward spiral.
  • Evil Is Petty: Her sickening jealousy of Iona notwithstanding, she is also very demanding, manipulative, treats her own mother like she owns the house, and seems to be lacking any human quality whatsoever behind her mask. And she only gets worse when her wish is reversed. In Spread, her violent tendencies skyrocket, and she went as far as kidnapping and harming Hitoe.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Averted. She talks to her mom as if she is "an old hag".
  • Faux Affably Evil: She usually acts all friendly and cheery towards the protagonists, even maintaining the act while she's tormenting them with her knowledge of their wishes. Needless to say it doesn't take very long until everyone realizes how twisted she is.
  • From Bad to Worse: Starts from the second half of Infected after her third Selector battle at the hands of Iona and gets a scar as her punishment. Gets really worse in Spread as she falls in love with Ulith only to realize that she is being used by her as a tool to cause suffering to the Selectors.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She's very jealous of Iona to the point that her innermost wish is to take Iona down.
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: Heavily hinted at, considering how quickly Ulith managed to turn her into a devoted lackey with just a few sweet words.
  • In-Series Nickname: Her self nickname, Aki-Lucky, which triples as her Catch Phrase and Gratuitous English. In Spread, she gives herself a new one, Aki-Lovely, as her attempt to become a better person before Ulith sends her back to her old self.
  • Irony: After Ruuko is brought by her classmates to her studio, she tells them to go home and calls them "uglies". She becomes one later on.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: She angrily points out that Ruuko fighting other Selectors even though she doesn't have a wish herself is horrible. And while she completely deserved the trashing she received, Ruuko's reaction afterwards shows that the words hit home.
  • Knife Nut: And would really like to use it to carve up Ruuko, Yuzuki, and Iona's faces to match hers.
    • In Spread, she stabs Ulith with a pen.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Driven to this by Ulith.
  • Love Redeems: She invokes this herself to Ulith, saying her love changed her into a better person. Then subverted when Ulith pretty much tells Akira that her horribleness was the reason she showered her with love in the first place.
  • Madness Mantra: Says every word said to her by Ulith after the former has disappointed the latter.
  • Manipulative Bitch: To the point where she goes to Ruuko's school and "requests" her classmates to take Ruuko to her studio.
  • Meaningful Name: Her surname means blue.
  • Mind Rape: How she gets easy wins. She commands Piriluk to read her opponents' wish and taunts them about it.
    • Is subjected to one herself by Ulith when she becomes Iona.
  • Mock Millionaire: While she may be a good-looking idol girl, she is not that smart and she lives in an apartment.
  • The Nicknamer: She loves giving nicknames on herself.
  • 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.
  • Psycho Lesbian: For Ulith.
  • Scars Are Forever: Got cut in the face with a knife by someone after losing to Iona.
  • She's Back: Thanks to Ulith, she is once again a Selector (with Milulun as her new LRIG) and has no problem doing favors for her.
  • Undying Loyalty: Towards Ulith in Spread, to the point that she gets a short panic attack when it seems like she can't come through with a favor Ulith asked of her.
  • Unreliable Expositor: Before her battle with Ruuko, 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 Ulith that Akira was the one who did all that, with Iona giving that girl her second loss beforehand.
  • Unwitting Pawn: For Ulith who is just playing with her emotions.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Being a very popular idol means people will rarely think she's actually a jerk.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Starts in Infected 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.
  • "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue: In the end, she is healed of her scar and returns to be a succesful idol again. She is also not so psychotic anymore and seems to be getting along with the real Iona.
  • Woman Scorned: See The Dog Bites Back above.
  • Yandere: For Ulith and she has no qualms of killing Ruuko for her.

Iona Urazoe (Kuro) (Yuki)

Click here to see Iona as a LRIG 
Click here to see Iona as Kuro 
Voiced by: Asami Seto (Japanese), Anastasia Munoz (English)

A quiet idol girl who is the bane of Akira's existence. She has a black card deck with Ulith as her LRIG. In reality, she only cares about fighting other Selectors and her wish is to keep on battling, whether as a LRIG or as a Selector.

She is one of the first two LRIGs created by Mayu, the other being Tama. Her original name is Kuro and she is known as the "Girl of Black". After spending enough time with Ruko and Hitoe, she decides to change her name, and calls herself Yuki now.
  • The Ace
  • 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 Ruuko "Ruu", 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 Ruuko 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.
  • Grand Theft Me: With Ulith in the Infected finale. Unlike the others though, she has no problem with it.
  • Heads I Win, Tails You Lose: She loses to Ruuko in their rematch but with Tama refusing to fulfill the latter's wish, she and Ulith take advantage to fulfill hers and becomes Ruuko's new LRIG.
  • 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.
  • Lack of Empathy: See her Kick the Dog moments. She is aware of the consequences of a Selector battle, and she doesn't care what happens to those who lose one.
    • After becoming a LRIG, she shows confusion over human emotions, such as friendship. This is justified since she is not a human.
  • 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 Ruuko 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 Ruuko in Episode 12 of Infected.
  • The Stoic
    • Not So Stoic: During her battle with Ruuko in the Infected finale.
  • Tall, Dark and Bishoujo
  • Victorious Loser: She loses her battle against Ruuko, but since Tama refuses to fulfill Ruuko's wish, her wish to be Ruuko's LRIG is granted instead.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Same with Akira.

As a LRIG

  • Absolute Cleavage
  • Bob Haircut: Used to have this when she was the real Iona's LRIG.
  • Boobs of Steel: She is the bustiest girl of the anime series both as a Selector and a LRIG and is the first LRIG seen to reach Level 5.
  • Break the Cutie: During in her dream by Mayu.
  • Can't Believe I Said That: During her and Ruuko's battle with Anne and Fumio, she motivates Ruuko to come back to her old Blood Knight self if she wants to save Tama and others from their torment. After their victory, she ponders why she has said that.
  • The Corrupter: Even since becoming Ruuko's LRIG, she is doing everything she can to push her to battle, completly disregarding her feelings and withholding information about Tama. She is also displaying several times that she downright doesn't ''understand'' her feelings, focusing only on her suppressed Blood Knight persona.
  • The Corruptible: Ironically, she is also this by Mayu who wants her to keep her Blood Knight persona.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: At the start of the anime series, she is a silent idol girl who only cares about battling without any remorse. In Spread, she keeps this but as she is Ruuko's LRIG and deals with her and her friends, she starts to show compassion and care for others.
  • Expy: And guess whose character design hers is based on? In an ironic twist and In-Universe speaking, Ulith's LRIG body is based on Iona's original LRIG body. Additionally, her current LRIG design is a combination of her former LRIG Ulith and her former Selector the real Iona.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Has a black wing on the left side of her chest.
  • Eleventh Hour Superpower/Fusion Dance: In the final episode, Ruuko merges a dying Yuki with Tama to turn them into a new LRIG. Ruuko names her Mayu.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Grows increasingly jealous of Hitoe and Yuzuki's closeness to her Selector Ruuko.
  • Heel-Face Turn: She eventually realizes Ruuko's power basically comes from friendship, which causes her to become Ruuko's friend. This is important because it turns out Iona was created to be a Heel.
  • Imaginary Friend/Literal Split Personality: Is this to Mayu, with Tama as her other half.
  • Long-Lost Relative: She is Tama's sister.
  • Male Gaze/Ms. Fanservice: Ones up this more than the other LRIGs.
  • Mid-Season Upgrade: Level 5 form.
  • Meaningful Rename: Her new name "Yuki" means "snow". Ruuko and Hitoe give her that name right after seeing the snow falls.
  • No Body Left Behind: In the final battle against Mayu, she begins fading away. This is due to the wish of the original Iona going unfulfilled, causing the LRIG who granted it to disappear.
  • Our Genies Are Different: According to Fumio, she senses something different her, who is the "Girl of Black", with Tama being the "Girl of White".
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: With Tama.
  • Worthy Opponent: Now that she's a LRIG, the other part of her wish is to find skilled Selectors to fight against.

Chiyori

Voiced by: Mako Morino (Japanese), Lara Woodhull (English)

An energetic Na´ve Newcomer. Her wish is to be a LRIG.
  • Ascended Extra/Chekhov's Gunman: While she is seen in the first season's opening credits and some promotional artworks, she only appears in an episode where she is defeated by Yuzuki. She is promoted to main character status in Spread.
  • Bowties Are Cool: Wears a big white one that also acts as her scarf.
  • Break the Cutie: Eldora has planned on letting the team of Hitoe and Yuzuki beat them (they already have lost two battles) so Chiyori's wish of becoming a LRIG doesn't come true. Chiyori is broken down in tears as she doesn't want to get separated from her LRIG.
  • Broken Pedestal: Meeting the author behind her favorite novels wasn't as sugary as she had hoped...
  • Cheerful Child: Being filled in on the dark side of WIXOSS makes her even more excited! Her wish is to be a LRIG, and was even making plans for when she becomes one in Spread's second episode.
  • Comic Relief: Her existence appears to be out of place in an otherwise psychological anime.
  • Crocodile Tears: Whenever someone tells her something shocking about the card game's Hidden Depths, she shuts herself down for a few seconds and appears that she is going to cry, only to get even more cheerful and enthusiastic. This gets averted in Episode 6 of Spread moments after she gets berated by Fumio. She is genuinely upset by it and runs off.
  • Cute Bookworm: A big fan of novels.
  • The Fashionista: She based her outfit on her LRIG Eldora, mostly the pink color and the skull motif. In comparison to the majority of Selectors who wear school uniforms and casual clothes, hers is more colorful and less formal.
  • Fearless Fool: Losing two battles should make her more cautious, right? Nope! She energetically volunteered to have another battle, this time against Fumio Futase. Ruuko fought in her place, much to her dismay.
  • Fun Personified: At the beginning of season 2 she learns about all the horrible things that happen from winning or losing Selector battles. Her reaction is to get excited. It turns out she was vaguely aware of the whole thing by reading some light novels written by a former LRIG. Also, Chiyori's wish was to become an LRIG in the first place.
  • Genki Girl
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Goggles Do Nothing: A part of her outfit.
  • Good Is Dumb
  • Jobber: She has already lost her two battles to Yuzuki and Ulith and six normal card battles to Ruuko's grandmother.
  • Meganekko: In her flashback.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: After losing three bottles, her memories of her friends and WIXOSS are completely wiped out. She keeps her Genki Girl personality, though.
  • Meta Girl: Loves pointing out how things play like those in the novels.
  • Na´ve Newcomer: In the first season, she's a Selector who didn't really know the dark side of WIXOSS, only getting her information through a novel about the game. As of Spread's second episode, she fully knows the truth of WIXOSS, but is still as enthusiastic as ever.
  • No Sense of Direction: As revealed in Spread's first episode, this is the reason why she was a no-show at Iona's Selector tournament that was held at the end of Infected.
  • Shoo Out the Clowns: Near the end of Spread she loses three times, causing her to forget about Wixoss. She then disappears from the plot until the ending.
  • Skeletons in the Coat Closet: Cartoonish skulls as her motif (a pair of magenta ones that hold her pigtails and another as a white bag that she carries around). Conveniently enough, her LRIG Eldora wears a big Nice Hat version.
  • Spirited Competitor: She is always cheerfully asking for a battle.
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: The Wise Guy to Eldora's Straight Man.
  • "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue: In the end, she is shown writting a letter in an attempt to befriend Ruuko, and runs into Eldora.

Fumio Futase

Click here to see Futase as a LRIG 

The author behind the novels that are based on the WIXOSS card game. She first appears at the end of Spread's fourth episode, getting more focus in the next. In actuality, she is a LRIG who took over the original Fumio's body after she achieved the requirements for becoming an Eternal Girl.
  • Badass Bookworm: Fumio is an aspiring novelist, and she read a lot of fantasy novels. Futase said she never lost a single battle against another Selector. Futase herself seems to have continued the winning streak until her loss against Ruuko.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Used to have this as a LRIG.
  • Bifauxnen: Just look at the pic above.
  • Bokukko
  • Broken Pedestal
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Futase was a blue LRIG.
  • Didn't See That Coming: According to the novels she wrote, all LRIGs could only reach Level 4. Cue her surprise when Iona grew to Level 5.
    • The original Fumio, like Yuzuki, was shocked when she found out what being an Eternal Girl meant.
  • Friendless Background: The original Fumio had no interest in making friends, with Futase being her first and only one.
  • Grand Theft Me: Currently, Futase is inhabiting Fumio's body after the latter achieved the requirements for becoming an Eternal Girl.
  • Identity Amnesia: As a LRIG, she did not remember her name. The original Fumio named her Futase.
  • Madness Mantra: "White room. Window. Mayu." She says and types this repeatedly when not interacting with others.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Her hair covers her left eye.
  • Pen Name: It's a combination of her given name (Fumio) and the name she gave her LRIG (Futase).
  • Refusal of the Call: LRIGs only appear before girls who have a strong desire to have their wishes granted. Yet the original Fumio did not partake in Selector battles, preferring to make her wish come true with her own hands. And Futase was content with that. However, due to increasing stress, from her family life to her rejected works, she entered the fray.
  • "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue: In the end, Fumio and Futase return to their original human bodies and briefly pass each other.
  • Writer's Block: As a novelist, Fumio has experienced this. Futase has also hit this wall, and she's not as well-versed in literature as Fumio was. As a result, she desperately wants to see Mayu again in order to get more ideas for her novel so that she can continue fulfilling Fumio's wish.

    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 manage 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. Selectors who have lost three times will have their wishes reversed and their LRIGs lost. Those LRIGs will be transferred to another Selectors.
  • Can Not Spit It Out: The LRIGs are not allowed to disclose certain details about the card game's Hidden Depths such as being an Eternal Girl and the consequence of losing three battles. This has caused friction between them and their Selectors.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience
  • Eternal Recurrence: How the Eternal Girl thing plays out. Once a Selector becomes an Eternal Girl, her LRIG takes over her body and her wish and she herself takes over the role of her LRIG. The new LRIG will then be sent to another Selector to be hers and the process continues.
  • Foil: Some of the relationships between Selectors and LRIGs have this.
  • Foreshadowing: The "LRIG" term. See Sdrawkcab Name below.
    • When the LRIGs meet their Selectors for the first time, they will say "I will make your wish come true". Turns out they will do it exactly how they said it. As in the LRIGs will make their wishes come true for their Selectors.
  • Fate Worse Than Death: Once a LRIG takes over their Selector's body, she must fulfill the Selector's wish, no matter how long it takes. During the process, she may start having self-identity issues. For example, in episode 6, Futase worries that the longer she is Fumio, the more she will forget her own identity. Also, the LRIG may not be able to fufill the wish...which causes them to become Selectors.
  • A Girl And Her X: To Selector's Girl.
  • Grand Theft Me: The LRIG will take over the winning Selector's body and wish. The Selector is then turned into a LRIG and she is sent to another Selector.
  • Hotter and Sexier: Any LRIG that reaches Level 5, namely Tama, Iona, and Ulith.
  • Hyper Awareness: The LRIGs can detect other LRIGs.
  • Informed Ability: Some of them have certain abilities. For instance, Piriluk and Ulith have Telepathy.
  • Jackass Genie: Though it's not entirely their fault. The wish-granting turns out to be deceptive advertising. No wishes are actually granted; instead the LRIG is compelled to fulfill the Selector's wish when they take over the Selector's body. They may not actually be able to fulfill the wish, which causes them to become Selectors. And onward the cycle goes...
  • Male Gaze/Ms. Fanservice: Most of the LRIGs are either one to varying degrees (Tama and Milulun are underwear-less while Hanayo and Midoriko are near topless). Piriluk and Anne avert this, though.
  • Miss Exposition: Averted by Tama and Futase at first.
  • Only One Name
  • Sdrawkcab Name: LRIG is backwards for GIRL, which is a Foreshadowing to to the whole Eternal Girl bit and "Eternal Girl" is just an alternate term for "LRIG" used to deceive their Selectors. The majority of them are former Selectors, as in former human girls.
  • The Trickster: As mentioned above, "Eternal Girl" is just another term for "LRIG". This basically means that the winning Selectors will unknowingly become LRIGs themselves while their LRIGs will take over their body and fulfill their wishes. And then there is the punishment of losing three battles. Some of the LRIGs do however try their best to prevent their Selectors from either one to happen, (such as Hanayo, Midoriko, and Piriluk), even if it means of being stuck in their cards forever.

Ulith

Click here to see Ulith as her original self 
Voiced by: Rie Kugimiya (Japanese), Bryn Apprill (English)

Iona's black LRIG. After fulfilling Iona's wish, she takes over her body and owns Tama as her LRIG.

She used to be a human girl with her wish was to spread pain and suffering to her victims. Her LRIG design is based on one of the first LRIGs' from Kuro, who is currently known as Iona.
  • All Your Powers Combined: Her level 5 form can use all colors.
  • Blood Knight
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Her color is black.
  • Expy: In-Universe. Her LRIG design is based on Kuro, who is currently known as Iona.
  • Grand Theft Me: She takes over Iona's body once Iona becomes an Eternal Girl. Iona doesn't mind much, however, since her desire was to be the LRIG of someone worthy of her (In this case, Ruuko).
  • Killed Off for Real: When Ruuko wins Mayu's final challenge, Ulith is taken by a black shadow and is killed.
  • Light Is Not Good: Though her appearance is closer to light gray.
  • Mind Rape: Her raison d'ŕtre. She lives to hurt other people, and her final goal is to drive them to suicide. And we have a frightening example of what she can do in the show, driving Akira deeper and deeper into madness.
  • Mystical White Hair
  • Sadist: Enjoys torturing her opponents mentally. Ironically, she shares this with Akira. It is revealed that she became a Selector for the sole reason of spreading pain and despair, enjoying breaking the mind of others and pushing them to kill themselves. She is that twisted.
  • Straw Nihilist: Show some shades of this. Her vision of the world is depressing, to say the least.
  • Telepathy
  • The Sociopath: She is a textbook example. Complete lack of empathy? Check. Horribly skilled manipulator? Check. Need for stimulation through hurting people? Dear God, check. A grandiose sense of self-Worth. Oh boy, check. Shallow affect? Check, check and check.
  • The Trickster
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: When she was young, she was able to deceive her elders.
  • Villain Forgot to Level Grind: Inverted as Mayu has given her a Level 5 form.

As a Selector

  • The Corrupter: She becomes this to an insanely disturbing level to Akira, initially making her feeling better, only to push her back into a psychotic mess, and urging her to do things which further her own agenda. She is playing her like a fiddle, and her victim is slowly but surely degenerating more and more under her influence.
  • Double Entendre: Like Iona, she can lash out some of this.
  • The Dragon: For Iona in Infected. Implied to be one for Mayu in Spread.
  • I Have You Now, My Pretty: Sort of. While she doesn't intend Akira to capture Hitoe to lure Ruuko, she spends some time playing with the tied-up victim in front of Ruuko while speaking about her sadistic motivation.
  • Kick the Dog: Gives this, with a knee to the gut, to Akira for kidnapping Hitoe.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch / Kick the Dog: Her treatment of Akira could be seen as both at first. While Akira is absolutely a terrible person, Ulith carelessly playing with her feelings becomes increasingly cruel and twisted.
  • Only a Flesh Wound: A non-lethal example. She gets stabbed in the hip by Akira with a pen for using her as a pawn. She later recovers in a private hospital room.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Much more so than Akira and Iona.
  • Perpetual Smiler: She is pretty much Iona making smiling faces.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: She doesn't seem to care that Akira kidnapped Hitoe from a moral point of view, but that someone could have seen them.
  • Psychotic Smirk
  • "Reason You Suck" Speech: She gives one to Akira in their final meeting before beating her to return to Mayu's white room.
  • Unexpected Inheritance: She owns the body of the original Iona who came from a wealthy and powerful family and takes advantage of this to cause more suffering between the Selectors. The very same body that Kuro took over before her. When gets hospitalized by Akira, she lampshades about the Urazoe family's wealth.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Not surprising since she owns Iona's body.
