Pril is a 12-year-oldnote (13 in Trouble Witches NEO!) witch-in-training as she is going through her apprenticeship of becoming a witch. She lives alone by the Hillvicott Forest and she sees her master everyday to study on her magic. She is easygoing, polite, and a hardworker, although is also somewhat dull and clumsy.
Pril's story starts off one day where she sees her master to continue her studies. However, her master wasn't home and she only found a talking cat named Al at her master's doorsteps with a message from her master. Pril's master stating he was too busy taking care of other things and wants Pril to stop Amalgam and her children from wrecking havoc at Eihemland as a final test of her apprenticeship in his absence. At the ending of their adventure, Pril's master never returned home, thus was never able to graduate from her apprenticeship, although Pril hinted that Al may be her master taking form a black cat.
Pril serves as the game's all-around character with a four-way spread shot while Al shoots a fireball in front of him.
Aqua Seep Seal is a 17-year-oldnote (18 in the original Trouble Witches) genius and a famous pop-star idol of Tio Ferris, a magical land under the sea. She does have family relatives, but she lives alone with the family butler, Spurnote and probably for good reason. She has a modest personality, although it is said that she has a darker side...
Lately her Idol Singer career has been in a rut and she needs to find a way to bring pop-idol status back to super-stardom. It was then she received one of the King of Eihemland's flyers, she seeks the opportunity to get back on top of the charts. With that, Aqua and Spur set out to stop Amalgam's children from causing trouble throughout the land... and make them a part of her new band.
Aqua can fires a five-way spread shot and excels in defense but lacks mobility and her MP Recovery is slower than others, while Spur shoots a penetrating shot.
Tropes relating to Aqua:
An Ice Person: Aqua has some uses of ice magic, according to her Tomboyish Witches profile.
Servile Snarker: He spends most of the game snarking about Aqua, and even narrates her adventures in a bored semi-British voice, like an ocean documentary. She eventually confronts him about it, but given it's Aqua, Spur just denies saying anything.
Yuki Longate & Minutes the Pig
Yuki voiced by Yutaka Sakai
Minutes voiced by Kanan
Yuki is a 12-year-old girlnote (13 in the original Trouble Witches) and a member of the Longate clan that guards a gateway to a mysterious castle up top of a floating island. She unfortunately grew up without her parents there to raise her. Her mother Angela passed on while she was little, and her father Sowah was a total workaholic to even pay any attention to Yuki. Because of this, she has become quite spoiled and selfish. She is also known to often take her frustration out on her "pig", Minutes, yet he doesn't mind being her personal chew toy.
After her father forgotten her birthday, she runs away from home and finds one of the King's flyers. She decides to use the opportunity to mock Amalgam's daughters.
Yuki shoots a triple-directional shot with quick movement but in weak defense while Minsk fires a spread shot.
Sies and The Beast are a mid-stage boss for Stages 1, 3, and 5 of Trouble Witches Episode 1 who's also playable in the original PC game and the NESiCAxLive version of Trouble Witches AC. Sies can use her umbrella to fire in a straight line while The Beast throws missiles that explodes on contact.
Demoted to Extra: She was playable in the original game, but never made so in Trouble Witches NEO!. This was averted for the original PC game given that Windows-based computers can play Japanese games.
A new character introduced in Trouble Witches AC, Symphony is cat fairy princess of fairies. Normally a kind, and down-to-earn girl, although she's also a scatter-brain and she's often sleepy.
One day after one of her naps, she wakes up to find her crown missing. She was convinced that Amalgam's daughters may have stolen it, knowing they are already causing trouble in Eihemland, and summons her servant Ponta to explain the situation. While preparing for pursue Amalgam's daughters, she pulls her crown — the very one she believed to be stolen — and sets off to reclaim it from them. Ponta, tries to tell her crown wasn't stolen, but it was no use for this scatter-brained princess.
Symphony fairly slow but has good defense. She fires linear shot while Ponta creates ultra-sonic waves around him.
A poor 18-year-old Vegabound Witch who's down on her luck, as she suffers from being the current loan shark to her parent's hefty debt with her debt-collector Toras to follow her everywhere she goes. She has walked for days without end, and collapsed one the beach floor to Eihemland. It was then that she found one of the flyers being spread throughout the country and uses the opportunity to use the her wish to pay off her parent's debt. At the end of journey of getting her wish to pay off her parents' debt, she decided not to pay for it after forming a bond with Toras.
Louis is fairly quick with strong defense, but her damage output and MP Recovery are weak. She fires a linear shot while Toras can fire a stream of energy from his beak. They were also introduced into Episode 1 with Trouble Witches AC.
A young cleric from Tundora, she works for a congregation that no one ever visits while starving and freezing in the cold hollowed walls. It was then that she runs into a floating eyeball: One claiming to be her father turned into a monster. He wants to help his own daughter by restoring order by stopping Amalgam's daughters if she promises him to return him back to normal form with her magic afterwards. While Conon means well in doing good deeds, they way she goes about them more of a jerk than being helpful.
She excels in defense and offense while suffers from slow MP Recovery. Conon shots spiked maces in front of her that falls down to the bottom of the screen after hitting it's target while her father shoots bolts from his eye. They first debuted as unlockable characters in Trouble Witches AC.
Lyla is a princess of the dessert kingdom of Arctauras with an impeccable sixth sense. However, she has low self-esteem issues and doubts herself and her abilities to no end. She awakes one day to find out that the ring of the Draupnir has been stolen despite seeing it happen in her dream, and to make things worse for her, the ring was supposed to be delivered to the King under a warranty. Together with her servant Sasha, they both look throughout Eihemland for a hero a save the kingdom.
Lyla excels in speed, offense, defense, but has the worst MP Recovery. Lyla fires seven-way spread shot while Sasha spits bombs in front of her. Like Conon and her father, they are also introduced as unlockable characters in Trouble Witches AC.
Genre Blindness: She spends the whole game seeking a hero to defeat Amalgam right to when they meet face to face. It turns out her cynicism stems from some self-esteem issues, and it's played for laughs.
Sakurako is an astrologist from an Eastern Kingdom who has seen one too many of her fair share of Magical Girl anime series. She grew up so many of them to the point of wanting to becoming a Cute Witch like her favorite animes. Uruchi still insists that she works on being an astrologist like her family before her, but when a flyer from the Kingdom of Eihemland shows up, she takes the opportunity to stop Amalgam's daughter's like a magical girl from her favorite anime series and use her wish to become one.
Sakurako Kujo and Uruchi are two of four characters introduced into Trouble Witches NEO!. Sakurako excels in offense and has good defense though average everywhere else. She shoots beams from her sword while Uruchi breathes an arching stream of fire.
Tropes relating to Sakurako:
Butt Monkey: Most of the opponents she face have never seen a miko before, thinking she's a clown or ridiculing the way she looks or talks.
Engrish: She's easily the game's biggest offender of this with her English voice-over.
Fanservice: During her ending, Chime made a magical staff for Sakurako that would transform her clothes à la Magical Girl fashion. She immediately tested it out before Chime can warn her about the "going nude" part of the clothing transform, which evidently happens as the small bits of clothing manages to cover any indecent exposure from the player's eyes.
Unexplained Accent: Noticing a pattern here? Like Al, she has a Japanese accent. However, since she is a miko (which means she's obviously meant to be Japanese), and is heavily into anime, the assumption could be made that she is speaking In-UniverseGratuitous English by a generous enough player.
Wrong Genre Savvy: She is an "astrologist" who wants to be a magical girl like in her favorite anime series, and spouts a lot of anime, Magical Girl nonsense to every enemy she faces. She learns that her differences in upbringing and training means she will be loved and needed by the world just the way she is: An anime-esque Miko.
Tropes relating to Uruchi:
Expy: Of the Amaterasu, although he's clearly a male.
Luca is a devil princess and the heir to Hell's throne. She possesses incredible powers and an insatiable desire to marry the Draupnir. She was convinced that being killed off by him, he was showing signs of affection to her. Her grandfather, Victor, helps his granddaughter find her fiance so they can be happily wed. Afterwards, she plans on getting revenge on humans for imprisoning her. Unfortunately for Luca, it turns that the Draupnir's "signs of affection" were meant to keep her away from the throne so that he may claim it as his own. While things turned out horrible for her, she found a much kinder fiance: Amalgam's only son, Malcem.
Luca and Victor are the other characters introduced in Trouble Witches NEO! as downloadable content. Luca outmatches all others before her with nearly maxed out stats in all areas and double MP compared to the other characters. She can fire a wide spread shot or a linear shot when using her grandfather to create a Magic Barrier. Victor on the other hand hurls bricks at random arcs.
Captain Oblivious: She spends the entire game chasing her betrothed fiance, oblivious to the fact that he does not like her. He even killed her, and she shrugs it off after recovering as a show of affection.
Draupnir: "I THOUGHT YOU'D GET THE MESSAGE WHEN I KILLED YOU." Luca: "But a knife through the heart is the most sincere declaration of love amongst demons~!"
Chime Brown is the boss of Stage 1 and Amalgam's third daughter. She's a 14-year-old girl who's an is an energetic and strong-willed, although she's short-tempered and not very bright, despite her mechanical skills. She hi-hacks a train heading into the capital of Eihemland and cause trouble for the people on board. To fool the on-lookers outside of the train, she puts on a disguise to fool them, although it doesn't work for our heroines...
Meil voiced by Junca Amaoto(in Trouble Witches NEO!)
Wrinkle and Meil Mail are the bosses of Stage 2 and are respectively Amalgam's fourth and fifth daughters. Both of these girls are identical twins around 8-years-old, and both of them have the ability of manipulating plants, and they don't have much of a sense of right-and-wrong. They use their powers to mess around in a forest for fun.
Unexplained Accent: Wrinkle seems to have something of a French accent in Trouble Witches NEO!'s English dub. Meil's accent is... it's anyone's guess, really.
Snowberry voiced by Sachika Souno
The boss of Stage 3 and Amalgam's second daughter. A 16-year-old girl who hates the cold and doesn't like to take action but she tries to meet her mother's expectations. She personally enjoys tangerines, her kotatsu, and whale stew. She even offers whale stew to her guests, if she gets any.
Tropes relating to Snowberry:
An Ice Person: Averted example as it turns out, she hates the cold.
A fiery witch serving as Stage 4's boss and Amalgam's first daughter. She's 18-years old, known to have a hot-temper (pun not intended), high in sex appeal, and can be a sore loser. Lili also does have a sense of responsibility and protecting her family. She acts as the guard to the gateway to Necrophantasm.
Amalgam's only son and the boss of Stage 5. He's a 13-year-old boy currently suffering form a curse that has made him weak and frail since birth due to his mother bearing the curse. Malcem has a kind, caring personality, largely due to his siblings being girls and he can understands the pain of others. However, with the shard of the Draupnir's ring, he becomes a much sinister person. The reason why he has a shard of the ring in the first place was to help fight off his curse.
Amalgam Kallous is game's titular villian who let's her daughters, each bearing a shard of the Draupnir's ring, and start all sorts of mayhem all throughout Eihemland. By using the Draupnir's power, her family will bring chaos to the entire country. Although her intentions of using the ring were never outright malicious from the get-go. When Amalgam was inflicted with a curse, it was passed on to her son Malcem since birth, and it has made him weak and frail. She did all she could as she waited for Arlia, Pril's mother and a close friend of hers, to come back with a cure to break the curse. She eventually lost hope and fell into despair as she waited for Arlia, which led to her use the Draupnir's power to save her sickly son.
A much-feared and powerful demon who was sealed away in a ring by Arlia, Pril's mother. However, said ring was stolen by Amalgam, and he uses her and her family to spread chaos all throughout Eihemland. Amalgam only intended to use the ring's power to save her son from her curse until Arlia returned with a cure; she never wanted this happen.
The Pumpkin Sisters Pleu and Ptheni are pumpkin elves that fly through the skies of Eihemland to supply the player with various power-ups in their house. Ptheni is the youngest of the two, being 10-years-old (in human years), and mostly minds the shop while Pleu is away. A rather nervous girl around strangers, but she's friendly when she gets to known somebody.
Pleu on the other hand is the oldest being 16-years-old (in human years) and the one in charge of the store. Somewhat selfish, but open-minded and she's always there for her little sister, especially if she ends up attracts the wrong crowd.
Getting Crap Past the Radar: In the original PC game, players can used their wands to "poke" whoever is at the counter in the Pumpkin Girls' Shop, that includes touching them on their chest. Although if players poke them too much, they will be personally kicked out of the store by Pleu and the shop won't arrive next time in the stage.
Despite disabling the players from touching the girls on their chest area in Trouble Witches NEO!, they can always molest them on their "Pumpkin" or their ears.
The mother of Pril Patowle, who once defeated the Draupnir prior to the game's story. So far is no where to be seen and her whereabouts are unknown. All there known about her is that she is looking for a cure to break a curse to save Amalgam's son, Malcem; Arlia and Amalgam are close-friends but they've haven't seen each other since they parted ways.
Tropes relating to Arlia:
Badass Family: Arlia vanquished the Draupnir once before by herself, and so did her daughter later.
