     The Main Players 
The entire group shares these traits:
  • Gang of Hats: Unknowingly to them, they all share the interesting trait of not being who their names suggest. Sakura and Syaoran are actually clones of the original ones, Fai is the twin brother of the original Fai, Mokona Modoki is a copy of the original Mokona, and Kurogane's name is not his real name.
  • Heroic Safe Mode: R!Syaoran, Kurogane and Fai have one when C!Syaoran is destroyed.
  • It's Personal: Even Mokona kind of gets this.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: All their actions only help the Big Bad accelerate his plans even further.
  • True Companions: The group members all care about each other, even the aloof Kurogane.
  • Two Girls to a Team: Since the White Mokona is confirmed to be female, therefore the group is composed of three guys and two girls.
  • Unwitting Pawn: They are all part of a big scheme. Some of them know more than others, though.

Syaoran is a young archeologist who is in love with Sakura, his childhood friend and the princess from the Kingdom of Clow. When Sakura's memories are scattered throughout parallel dimensions, Syaoran goes on a quest to recover them, giving all of Sakura's memories involving him as a payment to travel. Revealed to be a clone of Syaoran created by Fei Won Reed, and becomes obsessed with regaining the feathers. Killed by Fei Wong Reed, but reincarnated by Yuuko and Clow Reed in the past as the real Syaoran's father.

Crossover character from Cardcaptor Sakura.
  • Action Hero: At he looks like quite normal kid, but he is soon revealed to be a Bad Ass.
  • Adventurer Archaeologist: In addition to his skills as a fighter, he is also an archaeologist, having took up his father's dreams to become one.
  • Always Save the Girl: His entire journey is about collecting the feathers in order to bring back her princesses's memories
  • Artificial Human: He's actually a clone. See below for more elaboration.
  • Bad Ass
    • Badass Adorable
    • Badass Normal: At first he is the most normal fighter of the group as does not possess magic or sword arts like Fai and Kurogane and employs a hand-to-hand style instead.
    • Handicapped Badass: Having one blind eye doesn't hamper his fighting ability one bit.
  • Back from the Dead: Except not really, since he was a clone so he couldn't die, he only disappeared, or in this case, reincarnated before disappearing completely, and then disappeared for real from the entire space-time continuum of the multiverse.
  • Battle Couple: With reincarnated C!Sakura.
  • Big Damn Heroes: With reincarnated C!Sakura.
  • Bishōnen: It's CLAMP, what do you expect?
  • Cannibalism Superpower: He obtains Fai's magic gouging out the latter's eye and consuming it.
  • Character Development: At first he is willing to sacrifice everything he has to save Sakura even though he sees himself unfit for her. As time goes on, he realizes that being hurt also hurts Sakura so he tells Ashura he will not lose his life. After being stabbed by Fei Wang, Syaoran accepts to stay with Sakura regardless of how unfit he is.
  • Chastity Couple: With C!Sakura.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With C!Sakura.
  • Curtains Match the Window
  • Declaration of Protection: He always says he will protect Sakura.
  • Decoy Protagonist: During the Tokyo Revelations arc, the real Syaoran takes up the mantle.
  • Determinator: Is he ever. There is nothing that is going to stop him from saving Sakura and returning her feathers.
  • Dynamic Entry: Early in the series his ambush is so surprising that maybe Might Guy was his trainer.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: He first disappears in R!Syaoran's arms.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: After his Face–Heel Turn, he adopts an attire similar to R!Syaoran when he was locked up in the tube, which doesn't include any footwear.
  • Empty Shell: There was something weird about him as a kid. It is later revealed at that time he had a small heart which R!Syaoran gave him.
  • Elemental Powers: Only fire from the sword Hien.
  • Evil Twin: He's the Evil Twin! Or at least a heartless copy, though it's eventually averted.
  • Extremity Extremist: Fights extensively with kicks; later revealed that this is to compensate for his poor depth perception due to being blind in one eye.
  • Expy: Of Syaoran Li of course. Also, not only he shares Sora's physical traits but also the same voice actor.
  • Face–Heel Turn: In Tokyo.
  • Forced into Evil: The removal of R!Syaoran's soul returns him back into Fei Wang's control.
  • Freak Out: When he accidentally kills the clone Sakura, just as she tells him that she loves him.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When taking Fai's eye.
  • Happily Adopted: By Fujitaka Kinomoto.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In the original Clow Country, when he gave up his life to kill Fei Wang.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Took a stab from Fei Wang in what would have killed the Real Syaoran.
  • How Much More Can He Take: Lampshaded. Since he lost his heart, Syaoran doesn't feel wounds and will fight even with a broken arm.
  • Ideal Hero: During the first half Syaoran makes friends everywhere and becomes stronger However, on the second half...
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Subverted when Seishiro just impales Syaoran's PC. He is then impaled for real in Clow by Fei Wang.
  • Invincible Villain: When he became into a soulless automaton of Fei Wang, C!Syaoran won all three of his fights against R!Syaoran. If he had not gained a heart before his victory in the original Clow Country, the Tsubasa gang would have lost.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Especially if they come with magic.
  • Kick Chick: He specialize in using his legs to fight against his opponents.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Averted. At first Syaoran claims not remembering what happened to him before being adopted but we later learn he had no past.
  • Magical Eye / Mismatched Eyes: After obtaining Fai's eye. As a result, his right eye turns blue.
  • Magic Knight: Become this once he gained Fai's magical powers.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: His face really yells that when he destroys Sakura's soul.
  • My Own Grampa: Reincarnated as the real Syaoran's father.
  • Leitmotif: A Song of Storm and Fire
  • Nice Guy: He is polite, selfless, and is willing to help others in time of need.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: When losing his heart, he has no problems in beating up enemies to the point he first takes down a lion guardian and then takes one of Kamui's arms.
  • No Ontological Inertia: Disappears after Fei Wong Reed's death; Yuuko and Clow paid the price to get him and C!Sakura into the cycle of reincarnation.
  • Papa Wolf: When he is reincarnated. He along with his wife is willing to spend 14 years in a time capsule just to help his real son.
  • Passing the Torch: He gives R!Syaoran his jian and name in the time paradox in which he has become his father.
  • Recurring Dreams: He often dreams about somebody who looks like him...
  • Redemption Equals Death: Averted. After being reconstructed by Yuko, he still feels remorse for all the pain he has caused.
  • Reincarnation Romance: After he and C!Sakura die, Yuuko allows them to reincarnate in the past of the ×××HOLiC universe. There they are reunited and give birth to the original Syaoran.
  • Shirtless Scene: More of a Fan Disservice considering he is all covered in blood when he betrays his friends and later in a chapter cover and one of Fuma's flashbacks.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": The issue is should we follow the furigana (Syaoran), apply the pinyin pronunciation of the kanji (Xiaolang), or use Cantonese (Siulong) due to his heritage?
  • Spam Attack: He can freely use Fai's magic
  • Spin Attack: His kicks. It's not as over the top as the one from another of Clamp's characters, Suzaku.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With C!Sakura. It took them one reincarnation to finally get together, and even then, to save their son/his original version, they have to de-age themselves and spend years in a tube, one glass wall apart from each other. And in the end, they both disappear as Fei Wong's creations cannot exist after his death.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: When losing his Heart.
  • Taking the Bullet: When protecting the other Syaoran from Fei Wong.
  • The Stoic: As a kid he was this until meeting Sakura. Then in Tokyo he becomes stoic once again when being controlled by Fei-Wong.
  • Tragic Hero: In the end, no matter how much feathers he will have successfully gathered for Sakura's memories, he will always be burdened by the fact that she will never remember him before the start of their journey.
  • Undying Loyalty: Even if he is not remembered by Sakura, he will fight for her sake.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: His fighting style is too straigth forward to compensate for his poor defense brought by his low vision.
  • Younger Than They Look: He was created as a seven year old kid.

Sakura is a princess from the Kingdom of Clow who has her memories separated from her body to parallel dimensions in the form of feathers. All of her memories of Syaoran are completely erased to enable him to travel across the worlds to find her feathers. Revealed to be a clone created by Fei Wong Reed. Killed by the clone Syaoran, but reincarnated as the original Syaoran's mother.

Crossover character from Cardcaptor Sakura.
  • Action Girl: During the second half of the Tokyo Arc.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: She has red-tinted hair in the manga, but is something between a brunette and a bleached blonde in the anime.
  • Amnesiac Lover: As a payment to travel throughout dimensions, Sakura will never be able to remember Syaoran as her beloved childhood friend.
  • Artificial Human: Revealed to be a clone just as much as Syaoran
  • Back from the Dead: Just like Syaoran above.
  • Battle Couple: With reincarnated C!Syaoran.
  • Big Damn Heroes: With reincarnated C!Syaoran.
  • Born Lucky: Played straight and lampshaded when Fai uses her luck to ensure they have money by entering Sakura in gambling games in Spirit. Sakura's luck is later used as part of a price paid to Yuuko for a wish.
  • Break the Cutie: Imagine that every time you regain your memories, there is always that one person that is missing from your memories. And no matter how much you try to remember this person, some sort of deal will negate any attempts to remember this person. It's not just Syaoran who is in pain of being unable to make the person remember you but even the amnesiac girl is just as, or even more in pain than him. Or try the Cerebus Syndrome version when the person who protected you, and the person you were in love with, ended up being a clone and ruthlessly wounds your loved ones after he lost his heart. No wonder she lost all of her genki traits that her orignal version had; its because fate seems always to be against her.
    • Kill the Cutie: In the end, she dies when she took the stab C!Syaoran and never managed to say the words before her death.
  • Broken Bird: Becomes one around the Infinity Arc.
  • Can Not Spit It Out: A unique take on an older trope. The Dimension Witch's price for helping Sakura and Syaoran was their past relationship. Any time Sakura realizes her past feelings for Syaoran and tries to tell him, her memory of that is instantly removed, resulting in several Un Confessions.
  • Chastity Couple: With C!Syaoran.
  • Cherry Blossom Girl: But besides her name which correlates to her original counterpart, she bears no references to cherry blossoms whatsoever.
  • The Chick
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With C!Syaoran.
  • Damsel in Distress: A few times, and it peters out about the Infinity Arc... though someone will usually make an attempt on capturing her at some point.
  • Determinator: She might be cute and painfully sweet, but Sakura's got spunk- and she proves it once things go down in Acid Tokyo.
  • Deuteragonist: Swaps with Syaoran as her role in Tsubasa.
  • Dreaming of Things to Come: We never see her prediction dreams but this is how she managed to create a gambit that surprises even Fei Wang.
  • Don't Call Me "Sir": She has been trying to talk Syaoran out of calling her "Your Highness" (and using Keigo in general) ever since they were little kids - to no avail.
  • Dying Declaration of Love: Subverted. Before disappearing she tries to confess to C!Syaoran, but vanishes before saying it. She manages to say it before they get reincarnated, though.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Tomoyo does, at least.
  • Fan Nickname: Little Kitty, even in-universe.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Or even to not-living things.
  • Genki Girl: Initially before she loses her memories, she seems to be as cheerful and happy as her original counterpart as shown in the beginning when she glomps Syaoran immediately after he came back from work, asking multitudes of question along the way. But following her memory loss, she becomes reserved and quiet, lacking any of her personality that she has when she was younger. It all culminates in the second half when she becomes a Broken Bird, becoming even more reserved and quiet and rarely smile at anyone who is not Mokona.
  • Hair Intakes: Her hair has two intakes that look like cat ears.
  • Heroic Sacrifice/Taking the Bullet: She disappears for the first time after shielding the original Syaoran from an attack of C!Syaoran.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: She tries to make Syaoran recover his will from Fei-Wong but barely makes him hesitates in the Tokyo OVA. In the Dream World, she succeeds at the cost of her soul.
  • I See Dead People: Is able to see spirits who are suffering.
  • It's All My Fault: Blames herself for C!Syaoran's massacre as he is searching for the feathers.
  • Mama Bear: Abandons her entire life and spends 14 years in a capsule all to protect her own son.
  • Neutral Female: Almost always at first.
  • Nice Girl: If her original self is a nice girl, then she also definitely qualifies as one
  • No Ontological Inertia: Disappears because of Fei Wong Reed's death; Yuuko and Clow pay the price to get her and C!Syaoran into the cycle of reincarnation.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Despite literally being a royal class of Clow Country, she shows absolutely no signs of acting like an obnoxious brat at all.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With C!Syaoran. It took them one reincarnation to finally get together, and even then, to save their son/her husband's original version, they have to de-age themselves and spend years in a tube, one glass wall apart from each other. And in the end, they both disappear as Fei Wong's creations cannot exist after his death.
  • Took a Level in Badass: After the latter parts of the Tokyo arc, but the result is that while she is more capable, it has rather heartbreaking Broken Bird connotations.
  • Uptown Girl: Sakura is princess and Syaoran is middle class.
  • Younger Than They Look: The original version of this Sakura was created as a seven year old kid when R!Syaoran rewinded time. This Sakura herself is a clone created in the plot-triggering feather-scattering incident by Fei Wong.

Kurogane /Yōō
Voiced by: Tetsu Inada (JP), Christopher Sabat (EN), Yumiko Kobayashi (JP, young), Luci Christian (EN, young), Alfredo Martínez (Spain, series), Óscar Muñoz (Spain, movie)

Kurogane is a rough-mannered ninja from the world of Japan, who is sent away from his world by Princess Tomoyo in order to have him discover his true strength. He gives up his sword Ginryū as payment to Yuuko in exchange for traveling through dimensions and get back home.
  • Adaptation Name Change: In the anime, is true name is not Yōō, but Haganemaru.
  • Artificial Limbs Ends up getting one after sacrificing his left arm to save Fai in Celes. In a subversion of the usual pattern, it is NOT a perfect replacement and causes him pain.
  • Badass: As a fanfiction puts it, anyone who hacks off his own arm without batting an eye is fucking hardcore.
    • Badass Cape: Wears one of these in his default ninja outfit.
    • Handicapped Badass: Cuts off his own arm to save Fai's life, and drags the mage out of a collapsing dimension one-handed while blood pours down his side. Loss of a limb in no way diminishes the badassedness of the moment.
  • Berserk Button: Several, Fai's cutesy nicknames being the most obvious.
    • He reacts extremely badly to anyone who chooses to give up on life, particularly when it's Fai.
    • He also has a thing about people being eaten alive by monsters, since that was how his father died.
    • Touch his family. Really, any of them. Just try. Kurogane kills some pretty powerful major. antagonists who dared to.
  • Berserker Rage: There's a reason Tomoyo-hime worried about Kurogane becoming an unstoppable murdering machine. It's happened before, when his mother was killed before his eyes and his father eaten by demons, due to FWR's machinations. The Imperial Army was sent to stop one grieving boy. They died too.
  • Berserker Tears: Happens during the flashback of his childhood in Recourt, when his parents were murdered and Suwa burned.
  • Blood Knight: Has shades of this early on, due to his obsession with strength, but is more balanced by the end of the series.
  • Break the Cutie: He was a sweet, happy child when he was younger... until his mother got sick and was murdered by Fei Wang Reed, his father was eaten by demons, and his home was razed to the ground, causing an breakdown of epic proportions.
  • Childhood Friends: With Tomoyo.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Not quite on the same level as Fai's, but pretty damn horrible all the same.
  • Determinator: Once Kurogane makes up his mind about something, nothing and no one will stop him from going through with it. Fai learns this the hard way, in Tokyo, with Kurogane's decision to save his life against his will. And again in Celes when Kurogane willingly cuts off his own arm to get Fai out alive. Now that's determination at its finest.
  • Dope Slap/Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: He will punch out anyone that does something he thinks is stupid, usually being too self-sacrificing. Given the nature of this group, it happens often. So often, actually, that Fai picks up on the habit.
  • Expy: With his fighting style, his background and unfriendly personality he has shades of Zoro from One Piece. Complete with the same English VA.
  • Hair Contrast Duo: Fay and Kurogane's dynamic initially plays off like this; he is the moody, cynical brunet to Fay's ditzy light-hearted blond. Subverted when Fay's personality is actually much darker than it initially seems.
  • Hey, You!: Other than Tomoyo, Kurogane never calls anyone by name, usually 'kid' for Syaoran, 'princess' for Sakura, 'mage' for Fai, and 'white meat bun' for Mokona.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Non-fatally, though it could have easily killed him.
  • Highly Visible Ninja: Probably too Badass to be anything else.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Tomoyo is barely half his height.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Implied to have this when he knocks a crossbow bolt aimed at Syaoran out of the air with a small stone and acts as if it was nothing out of the ordinary. Probably comes with being a Badass Puppy Ninja.
  • In-Series Nickname: Mostly by Fai and sometimes Mokona: Kuro-tan, Kuro-pin, Kuro-run, Kuro-rin, Kuro-pu, Kuro-chi, Kuro-wanwan, Kuro-daddy or just Daddy, Big Puppy and many, ''many'' more. Interestingly enough, most of the suffix based nicknames that Fai gives him are cutesy, girly nicknames that Japanese schoolgirls give one another in an effort to appear cute- hence his aggravation.
    • In the English dub, we get Kurgyburger.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Would probably like to believe he's not a Nice Guy at heart.
  • Lady and Knight: Knight to Tomoyo's Lady, in an arrogant sorta way.
  • Leitmotif: Break the Sword of Justice. One should probably note that this and Fai's "Strange Names" are probably the only themes of the series that are completely separated from the normal style the soundtrack has going on.
  • Life-or-Limb Decision: He sacrifices his arm to save Fay.
  • Mr. Fanservice: He's Tall, Dark and Handsome and cool as a cucumber.
  • Near-Death Experience: A conveniently-timed one allows Tomoyo-hime to tell him how to get Fai out of Celes.
  • Ninja: Interestingly, he resembles more a samurai, as he favours frontal attack, uses certainly more strength than stealth, and specializes in swordfighting and little more. However, he is sometimes seen on the roofs at night as every good ninja has to be seen, and some of his fighting poses evokes the classic ninja stances.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Spends most of his time scowling. Not so much when he's fighting, though...
  • Power Limiter: The "curse" Tomoyo places on Kurogane which will decrease his strength if he kills anyone. This is subverted because we find out after Celes that it's really a protection charm and the stuff about his strength diminishing was a prophecy about the consequences of killing Ashura.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Certainly appears to be the most morally ambiguous of the heroes at first glance, but inverted as you started to realize he's the most grounded among them.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: For the first few chapters he seems to be playing this straight, but it's ultimately subverted. He's actually the only member of the team who isn't a spy
  • Sarcastic Devotee: Oh so much.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Manly Man to Fay's Sensitive Guy.
  • Ship Tease: With Fay... all the time and everywhere.
  • Slasher Smile: Sports one from time to time, especially when he's fighting.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Really resembles his father and the Fandom on Tumblr recently discovered that he has his mother's smile.
  • Team Dad: Has this title applied by Fai unwillingly, but it fits surprisingly well, especially by the end of the Infinity Arc.
  • Traumatic Superpower Awakening:With the death of both parents in one night, he picks up his family's sword, wipes out ALL the demons in sheer rage before Amaterasu and co. arrives to deal with them (who he mostly trashes as well). And ever since then he's super capable of handling multiple enemies at once.
    • His inability to keep it in check is why Tomoyo sends him away in the first place.
  • Tsundere: Even with his Grumpy Bear persona, he shows himself to be capable of surprising gentleness. His tsundere tendencies are mostly reserved for Fay.
  • Undying Loyalty: He may sometimes go against her orders, but Kurogane is utterly devoted to Tomoyo.
    • Also, to the Travellers themselves. He would do anything to keep them safe, even leave his princess again. Though, given his personality and actions, he wouldn't die for them if there was another way because then he would have to leave them unprotected.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: As a child he was adorably idealistic and innocent.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: He'll deny it to his dying breath but for all his yelling, cursing and chasing he cares deeply about Fai.
  • Yaoi Guys: With Fay. Like most CLAMP pairings it's not made explicit, but their body language around each other in their crossover appearance in xxxHolic after the end of the series is pretty telling, and Word of God has confirmed it.

Fay D. Flourite/Yuui
Voiced by: Daisuke Namikawa (JP), Vic Mignogna (EN), Emilio García (Spain, series), Dani Albiac (Spain, movie)

Fay is a powerful magician from the country of Seresu. He travels to Yuuko on his own accord after making his king Ashura-ō fall asleep. He wishes never to return to his country, so he gives up a tattoo on his back in exchange for Mokona to travel through dimensions.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Shows attraction to women a few times earlier on in the series but his focus seems to be on Kurogane.
  • Angsty Surviving Twin: For the real Fay.
  • Beneath the Mask: His cheery, laughing mask is dropped altogether for his inner personality following the events of Acid Tokyo. Also has shades of Becoming the Mask, where Fai himself mentions that acting the way he did around the children became natural and instinctual.
  • Berserk Button: For someone so easy going, he has quite a few of them. Don't hurt his surrogate daughter Sakura if you want to live. He's extremely protective of everyone in the main group, including R!Syaoran and Kurogane, as the Celes arc proved. Ashura-ou deliberately endangered first C!Sakura, then R!Syaoran, and finally Kurogane so as to send Fai into a murderous rage that would have resulted in a beat down of epic proportions if Fai hadn't been magically-crippled by the loss of one of his eyes and half his magic.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Always laughing? Check. Always joking? Check. Takes nothing serious? Check. Provides most of the Comic Relief? Check. Extremely powerful magic and extensive close combat and weapon training? Double Check. Conclusion: Do not, I repeat, ''do not'' threaten the people he loves or he'll make you regret it.
  • Bishōnen: Probably the best example in the whole series and one of the best in the entire multi-verse.
  • Born Unlucky: The Curse of the Twins. He's probably not actually, the people of Valeria just thought he was.
  • Break the Cutie: His backstory.
  • Broken Bird
  • Can't Live Without You: After his transformation into a vampire he can't live without Kurogane's blood.
  • Cat Smile
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Holy crap this guy has had it bad!
  • Death Seeker: Some of his earliest childhood memories are his imprisonment in the tower and having a Madness Mantra of "I want to die, I want to die" over and over again. He doesn't defend himself properly in battle which leads to Fai having injuries that could've been avoided, much to Kurogane's chagrin. And when C!Syaoran rips out his eye he actually begs Kurogane not to save him, and he holds a deep grudge against the other man for a long time when he does.
  • Deus Angst Machina: Check the entry over there for more details.
  • Emergency Transformation: Gets turned into a vampire in the Tokyo-Arc
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Grows his hair out after the events in Tokyo, signifying the darker turn in his personality. Subverted at the end of the series where he keeps the longer hair but is much happier mentally.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Subverted. He actually lost half of his power along with the eye he lost.
  • Eye Scream: When Syaoran's seal breaks, the newly soul-less clone rips out Fai's eye to gain half his magic power.
  • Genre Savvy: Has shades of this. He uses Sakura's luck to make sure they have everything they need in Spirit.
  • Girl in the Tower: Gender Flipped Fai (Yuui) and his twin were imprisoned at the bottom and top of a tower, respectively, surrounded by unclimable walls, where the dead bodies of prisoners were discarded.
  • Heroic B.S.O.D.: Happens a few times over the course of the series, such as when Sakura is "killed" in Infinity, and when Ashura is killed in Ceres.
  • Hair Contrast Duo: Initially plays the flighty cheerful ditzy blonde to Kurogane's angry brunette, but it's later subverted when Fay's true colors begin to shine through.
  • Handicapped Badass: Not as much as Kurogane and Syaoran but he kicks serious ass in the final battle before he gets his magic and eye back.
  • I Hate You, Vampire Dad: To Kurogane.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: His physical skills are high enough to fight around comfortably without using his magic. He is very gracile to leap and dodge, and has an affinity for kicks, very much like Syaoran. Most especially after becoming a vampire, as seen in the final battle.
  • Lady and Knight: Eventually becomes the knight to Sakura's lady.
  • Leitmotif: Strange Names One should probably note that this and Kurogane's "Break the Sword of Justice" are probably the only themes of the series that are completely separated from the normal style the soundtrack has going on.
  • Like A Daughter To Me: How he feels about Sakura. He later reveals that it's partially because he already knows she's a created being - this only makes him want to be kinder to her.
    • Playfully at first, but then we get to Acid Tokyo, aka the shit hits the fan world. Just look at him cradle Sakura in his arms after she comes back alive from her mission. Then in Infinity, where he practically devotes himself to serving her .
    • Even after he stabs her the look on his face just shows scared he's become by growing close to her. He refused to get closer to Kurogane because he was afraid of things like this happening, but ended up getting close to Sakura anyway. He not just goes back to Celes, the exact place he made a wish to Yuuko not to return to, but he made another wish to go back to Celes, sacrificing something yet again. So he could save Sakura. Don't. Touch. His. Daughter.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: He grows his hair out after Acid Tokyo. See Expository Hairstyle Change. In the sequel he lets it down once and fangirls worldwide had a collective freakout.
  • Magic Knight
  • Mama Bear: Eventually. If we go by Tsubasa Family rules with Kurogane as the Papa Wolf. Skyrockets Up to Eleven by the end of the Acid Tokyo arc.
  • Martyr Without a Cause
  • The Mole: Was planted by FWR in order to ensure c!Syaoran succeeded in finding the feathers.
  • Mr. Fanservice
  • The Nicknamer: To everyone in the group to some extent, but especially Kurogane. So much so he never uses the ninja's real name. At least, not until his post-vampire-transformation personality switch, where a simple statement of "Good morning, Kurogane" is used to great effect.
  • Occult Blue Eyes: His magical powers are explicitly tied to the blue color in his eyes.
  • Older Than He Looks: As Yuuko told Kurogane, [Fai] has already lived many times Kurogane's age. Given that Kurogane looks to be in his early 20's at the youngest, this probably makes Fai at least 80 years old, despite also appearing to be in his early 20's.
  • Our Vampires Are Different
  • Phenotype Stereotype
  • Power Limiter: His full-back phoenix tattoo is supposed to restrict his huge innate powers to keep him safe. Thus, when he gives it up to Yuuko as his traveling price, he also swears off the use of magic. Later subverted when we find out he's more dangerous with it than without it, because he is cursed to kill the first person he meets who is MORE powerful. With his magic restricted, it's more likely that he'll find someone who outstrips him.
  • Pretty in Mink: A giant floofy white fur overcoat. He loses it for good in Celes, which is probably symbolic on some level.
  • Protagonist Journey to Villain: Honestly? The only reason he's not gone of the deep end and turned into an all out villain is probably that Kurogane kept dragging him back. Going by his backstory this isn't surprising.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to Kurogane's Manly Man, fitting the CLAMP stereotype.
  • Ship Tease: With Kurogane at all times, everywhere and no matter who's watching. Check the Yaoi Guys entry below.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Officially, it's "Fay", but Del Rey had already settled on "Fai" for their translation, and fans tend to just spell it however the hell they want. There's also Flowright vs. Fluorite.
  • The Stateless: With his home country gone, he has no place to officially call home. Syaoran lacks a nationality, as well. Thankfully, they both have loved ones in welcoming countries, and perhaps someday they will become citizens of one of them. Fans have pretty much agreed that he'll settle down in Nihon one day, which is likely considering his relationship with Kurogane.
  • Stepford Smiler: Though it does begin to crack and ultimately appears to fall away completely.
  • Superpower Meltdown: In Celes country, when the second curse on Fay activates, he literally shuts down a dimension with his magic. This also highlights his Power Degeneration.
  • Team Mom: Is essentially the self-proclaimed mother of the group. His actions towards R!Syaoran during his It's All My Fault-episode cements that.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Fai has it hard throughout the series, starting with the death of his twin (which he believes himself responsible for); Ashura's mental breakdown and murderous rampage; losing an eye and completely dropping his Stepford Smiler act during Infinity, followed by Sakura's "dying" because of his triggered curse; and finally the entire Ceres Arc, especially Kurogane nearly dying and Ashura's eventual death.
  • Twin Switch: Fai is actually Yuui (although the switch occurred after the real Fai, whose name Yuui uses, was already dead).
  • When He Smiles: When he's really, truly happy, and not just putting on an act.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: The vitriol is only on Kurogane's part and they really care deeply about each other.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: It's not exactly willingly, but Fai shuts down a whole dimension with a magic-powered freak out once his curse activates in Ceres, and he nearly did so earlier in Infinity when Sakura's soul was split from her body.
  • Wolverine Claws: When becoming a vampire.
  • Yaoi Guys: With Kurogane. Like most CLAMP pairings it's not made explicit, but their body language around each other in their crossover appearance in xxxHolic after the end of the series is pretty telling, and Word of God has confirmed it.

Fei Wong Reed
Voiced by: Kazuhiro Nakata (JP), Randy Tallman (EN, first season), R Bruce Elliott (EN, second season), Luis Vicente Ivars (Spain)

Fei Wong Reed is a powerful magician who is after Sakura's inner powers. Therefore, he scatters her soul into multiple feathers throughout various worlds to make it get stronger as Syaoran is able to return them to her. He is either a follower or a descendant of Clow Reed

Almost everything that happens in the series is according to his plan. He wants to make Yuuko come back to life, something not even Clow Reed was able to fully do, so he can be superior to Clow.
  • A Glass of Chianti: He is often seen holding a cup of wine in a worldly fashion.
  • Artificial Human: He breaks into pieces rather than dying. According to the last volume's new pages, he was a created being just like the Syaoran clone.
  • Bat out of Hell: His symbol is a bat.
  • Big Bad
  • The Chessmaster
  • Dying Curse: On R! Syaoran and Watanuki once they find a way out of the void. The two manage to escape from it a cost big prices.

  • Evil Sorcerer
  • Famous Last Words: "Pay the price."
  • Final Boss
  • Foil: To R!Syaoran. He is also motivated to save a person facing death but his actions to reach his goals are all Moral Event Horizon.
  • High-Class Glass: His signature monocle, with appears to float over his face at times and gets broken in the final battle.
  • Gambit Roulette: Alernate worlds, alternate timelines and he's steering his plan through it all.
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: Villainous (though still impressive) example.
  • Large and in Charge: A pretty big dude, he towers over Xing Huo, who is not precisely short, and is more broad of shoulders than any other character in the series.
  • Love Makes You Evil: Left ambiguous. His motivation to keep Yuuko alive is repeteadly told to be not out of love, but of intelectual desire of surpassing Clow Reed in magic greatness. However, his lines at the climax of the series sound increasingly broken and teary towards Yuuko's inevitable fate, and his last words claim that he would resurrect her "so he could tell her something." With the revelation of him being possibly an Artificial Human, his motivations become even more muddled.
  • Magic Knight: He owns a rather huge sword, and Kurogane believes that he must have been a skilled swordfighter.
  • Royal Harem: In the manga, he's often shown surrounded by a crowd of sexy-looking Bridge Bunnies on his coach, as opposed to the anime, where they are notably absent.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name is written both as "Fei Wang Reed" and "Fei Wong Reed".
  • Manipulative Bastard
  • Not So Different: With R!Syaoran since both possess similar wishes and have performed similar actions with Fei Wong's crossing the moral event horizon several times.
  • Taking You with Me: Attempts this with the two Syaorans and Watanuki.
  • Tangled Family Tree
  • Trap Master: He has left traps all over Clow Country, Celes and the other dimension of Clow and that's not even mentioning the Syaoran clone and Fai.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: [[spoiler:All he wanted to do was to prevent Yuuko Ichihara from losing her life, but Wwhat he did only caused Yuuko Ichihara to sacrifice her life.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Fei Wong despairs upon realising all his executed plans to become superior to Clow Reed were still not enough to keep Yuuko on the verge of life and death.
  • You Have Failed Me: He kills Xing Huo for helping the real Syaoran escape.

    Tomoyo If you want to go together, if you wish for it with all your heart [...]
  • Silk Hiding Steel
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Almost very single version of Tomoyo who appears in the series instantly latches herself onto Sakura.
  • Waif Prophet
  • Wise Beyond Her Years: A trait she shares with her CCS counterpart; psychic powers and ability to see the future notwithstanding, she is still very mature for her age of fourteen.

Although their countries are fighting, it turns out that Ashura is in love with Yasha, and has enlisted Syaoran in his fight in the hopes of fulfilling an impossible wish, to revive the deceased Yasha.
  • All Deaths Final: Ashura's wish to resurrect Yasha is so impossible it causes the moon castle to self-destruct

  • Love Across Battlelines/Star-Crossed Lovers/Kill the Ones You Love/The Mourning After/Together in Death: The unholy pentangle of tragic romance. Their kingdoms war eternally against each other every night for ownership of the moon castle that grants wishes. They fall in love but Ashura accidently kills Yasha one night because he is suffering from illness. Ashura can't accept it and tries to bring him back via a wish that is so impossible, it destroys the moon castle, and chooses to die and reunite with Yasha that way.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted. The Ashura of Shura Country has the same name as Ashura-ou in Celes. This does not go unnoticed by Fai, and is a minor plot point.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: Played tragically when Ashura, who fights with Yasha because it's the only time they can be together, wounds him one day leading to Yasha's death.

As a descendant from the sorcerer Clow Reed, Syaoran was able to seal part of his "heart" within his clone, meant to be manipulated by Fei-Wang, allowing the clone to grow a personality. Once Syaoran escapes from the prison and his clone betrays his friends, he joins the group of Kurogane, Fai, Mokona and Sakura as he wishes to recover something he lost, later revealing he wished to find the original Sakura. In the series' ending he becomes the son of C!Syaoran and C!Sakura due to a stable time loop but loses his bonds with them after the loop is broken, thus becoming a paradox himself.
  • Adorably Precocious Child: When being only seven he was already one of the most mature characters in the entire series.
  • Always Save the Girl: For Sakura's sake, he has purposely damned an entire town, watching them melt before his eyes, chosen staying with her over his own world and family at the age of seven, and then made a Deal with the Devil to radically alter, and not for better, the life of her entire family, herself, and his own parents, along with, potentially, all of space and time.
  • Ambiguously Evil: Carrying Fei Wang's symbol, being with him and appearing in a dream trying to kill the other Syaoran made many believe this Syaoran was evil.

The princess of Clow Country in the original timeline. She befriended and fell in love with the original Syaoran when he was transported by Yuuko to her world. Fei Wong placed a "Black Seal" on Sakura, with only her parents and Syaoran knowing it. By the time the black wings grow it will devour her and she will die. After seven years, when the seal was about to kill Sakura, Nadeshiko stopped time and Syaoran wished Yuuko to turn back time to save her.
