- Anti-Villain: Not really evil at all.

- They Would Cut You Up: Part of the issue of capturing him was his fear of being dissected by scientists.

- Ascended Glitch: Inspired by the Glitch Hybrids of both the Gen I and IV games.
- Capture and Replicate: Commanded his underlings to find another piece of ▶▒ A▒ in order to study and experiment with it.

PiesA trainer that used to follow the J-Team around and do all sorts of evil plots.
- Filler Villain: Tended to pretty much randomly show up to bother the J-Team.

- Butt Monkey: Ghetsis is made everyone's joke IRP.
- Driven to Madness: By the J-Team as a result of his numerous failures, and while BW2 show that he managed to temporarily recover, his defeat there made it permanent.

Galactic Commander NeptuneA Galactic Commander who Tagg curb-stomped years ago who decided to go for revenge.

- Just a Kid: Thought this of Tagg when they first met, which proved to be a huge mistake.
- Threatening Shark: His Sharpedo.
- Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: Discussed. Wonders why Cyrus chose to try using Primal Dialga to kill DS instead of a far more mundane method such as merely slitting her throat. It overlaps with Irony because he never tried doing that with Tagg.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: As with most Team Galactic members.
[FutureOS (PEFeDOS / XANADOS)]]An evil AI that was used by Pokefutures, until Tangent and Basket seemingly completely destroyed her in the OU.

- Greater Scope Villain: For the Re: Glitch arc, as the Flickering Thing was a creation of hers.
- Staying Alive: Due to her numerous backups the PEFE Founders find themselves incapable of truly killing her.
- Xanatos Gambit: Her attempt to recreate Missingno; if she had defeated the J-Team, she would have had plenty of time to create and materialize it, even if she couldn't manage to control it. However, even though she lost, she managed to protect a piece of Missingno from resetting by trapping it mid materialization, which was released when the J-Team themselves materialized.
Ferno the CharizardδA Fire/Dragon Delta Charizard who led the Delta Pokémon who tried to kidnap Pleo to get the legendaries to pay attention to their plight. In reality he considers Deltas superior to regular mons and merely wants to take over.

- Wicked Cultured: Is very cultured despite being a total bastard.

- Sealed Evil in a Can: Was one for 1,000 years after being defeated by the Aura Guardians until Tagg released him.
- Visionary Villain: Wished to bring a new dawn to Sinnoh using the Twilight, though his methods leave much to be desired.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Despite his methods, Annoski truly did have Sinnoh and his people's best interests at heart.
- Worf Had the Flu: Tagg managing to seriously injure Annoski left him unable to actually deal with the J-Team directly for most of the arc.
EspritA rogue priest of Lugia who often attempts possessing people and Pokémon, with a particular interest in Straw's body.
- Demonic Possession: Can do it to both humans and mons, and has a particular interest in Straw due to his ability to cheat death. Eventually he uses Elise to collect Straw's DNA in order to make himself a body.

- Pragmatic Villainy:
- Speaks against smuggling in Black City in her public persona... Because she doesn't want competition.
- She also keeps the mons under her care healthy (physically at least), since they make better prospects to her clients that way.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Melinda's childhood flashbacks appear to suggest this, though we still don't know what exactly led to her becoming a smuggler and far more cynical.

He died from getting stabbed in the chest by Lucius, but came back as a Yamask and later a Delta Cofagrigus currently travelling with Ivy.For tropes applying to his past life Celzvet, see the Ancestors page.
- A Father to His Men: Treats the Pawniard under his command well.
- Alas, Poor Villain: Edge may be arrogant and merciless, with no apparent reason to assault the J-Team other than petty greed, but his death, when it finally comes, is surprisingly poignant. This is doubled by the revelations later in the story regarding his true identity.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: He's the commander of the Pawniard Army, and probably more of a threat than the rest of his army put together.
- Due to the Dead: Subverted, Tagg actually lets Rotor eat the corpse upon his expiring, though he tells him to wait until everyone else has left.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: How he died.
- Large Ham: Oh so very much.Edge: <IDIOTS! NOTHING YOU CAN DO I HAVEN'T SEEN BEFORE! A MILLION BATTLES! A TRILLION! EVERY COMBINATION! EVERY LEVEL OF SKILL! YOU CANNOT CATCH ME OFF GUARD!>

- The Reveal: Is actually Jacob and Crow's ancestor Celzvet Kaeqiri.
- Sins of Our Fathers: Due to Lucanus assisting the Ghost Lord in turning him into a Bisharp and ruining his life, Edge decided to take revenge on all of his descendants, having killed plenty of them over the centuries.
- Soul Power: Surprisingly for a Bisharp, he's a Ghost Obscura user, and a powerful one at that. This is due to Edge actually being Celzvet.

- Death by Adaptation: Got the life energy he stole sucked out of him to the point he was turned into dust.
- Make My Monster Grow: The machine containing the Gold Star allowed him to grow huge from the life energy absorbed from the competitors.
- Time Abyss: He's as old as the Crystal Stars in this version, having used the Gold Star to keep him alive through the millennia via draining the life energy of competitors at the Glitz Pit.
- Time-Limit Boss: Implied, since he was sucking the life force of everyone fighting and he probably did a similar thing to Maggie.
MuninnAn evil Latios with a grudge against Ever and his team for defeating him and crippling his flying abilities, and a desire to have the Latii take over the planet again.
- Arch-Enemy: Apart from All prior to his semi-Heel–Face Turn, he's the closest thing Ever and his team have to one.
- Badass: It took Ever's whole team to defeat him last time they tangled, and they needed help from Waka to actually finish him off.
- Due to the Dead: Subverted, Ever's mons ended up eating his corpse, and Tagg upon hearing what happened to him only laments that them doing that prevented specimen acquisition.
- Handicapped Badass: Even though he can't fly as well as other Latios, he's still pretty powerful.
- Hannibal Lecture: Tells Marmalade just as he's about to rip her wings off in revenge for the crippling of his own that no one will stop him because no one cares about her. Salamence proves him wrong on that one.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Turns out Zen Headbutting Ever was not a good idea, as it killed him.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Ever goads him into ramming him out of the Hoenn Champion chamber with Zen Heabutt, which has Muninn impale himself on Every's Skarmory feathers.
- Jerkass: He's a massive asshole who's even willing to join Cipher of his own free will in order to further his horrible ends.
- Kick the Dog: Used Ever as his toy for most of the Orre arc, and manipulated Pleth under his guise as Must.
- Master Race: As far as he's concerned the "lesser species" should just grovel at his kind's non-existent feet.
- Meaningful Name: Muninn is named after one of the messenger ravens from Norse Mythology, whose name translates into "memory" or "mind," and used to work under former Cipher Admin Odin.
- Morphic Resonance: As Must he has one missing wing, representing the one that got crippled at the climax of the Orre arc.

- And Your Little Dog, Too!: Orders her mons to kill Ever and company's mons in order to force them into compliance when they refuse to help her with her revival scheme.
- Badass Crew: Her mons are powerful enough to take on more two or more Champion level opponents at once without breaking a sweat.
- Lack of Empathy: Thought little of placing Cornelia inside a suit that ramped up her anger and paranoia to the point of compliance because she wasn't into reviving Revy or forcing Ever and co into doing it.

- Practical Taunt: In his first appearance, uses Rage Powder to keep Ever and All from working together.
Kusaru AmenoAn aura wielding spirit, brother of Hikaru and thus an ancient relative of Jason's. Bears a grudge against Hikaru's bloodline for defeating and sealing him away when they were both still alive.

- The Empath: A side effect of his Auric powers. Has a habit of attempting emotional manipulation in order to get what he wants.

Napoleon had a personal hand in the deaths of Mezzo's Black Guard (Though they weren't exactly heroes at the time), beat the crap out of MGMT, killed Mira, managed to seriously injure Lake, and is one of the very few beings to more or less escape the full wrath of the J-Team unharmed.
- The Juggernaut: Nothing seems to truly stop him for very long short of Scolipede's giant Hydreigon.

- Knight of Cerebus: Is generally considered one for the AU arc.
- Large and in Charge: Is at least seven feet tall at the shoulder.

RommelA Serperior general under Scolemis who was in charge of the Johto invasion during the AU.

- Captain Ersatz: Of Erwin Rommel.

- Pride: Is very arrogant.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Flees Hoenn after AU!Marmalade reveals his geass to his forces.
- Squishy Wizard: Much like his namesake, Lelouch is pretty weak physically, and a solid hit is all it takes to put him down in a straight fight.

- Faux Affably Evil: Unlike the Master, he's a bit of a sadist and rather condescending while being technically polite.
- Genius Bruiser: Both very strong and very smart.
- Shut Up, Kirk!: Tagg tries to talk him down like the Master, but he just figures the sterility problem will be fixed eventually and attacks.
MorpheusThe Head Priest of the Children of the Cathedral.
- Karmic Death: Xatu leaves him to get blown up in the Cathedral after defeating his men and giving a "Reason You Suck" Speech to him.
- Sinister Minister: Like his game counterpart he's a sham priest who preys on others.
- Small Name, Big Ego: Thinks he's a lot more powerful than he really is. Tagg's Xatu points out to him that to his teammates, some of whom have actually fought godlike beings, he's little more than a footnote.

- Big Bad: Of the Orre arc, and in some ways the entire RP.
- Compensating for Something: Tracer accuses them of this due to the large amount of firearms they carry.

- Greater Scope Villain: 'M was originally a Cipher experiment.
- Interservice Rivalry: The various branches of Cipher do not get along, to the point that their effectiveness was hampered though branches letting the J-Team destroy others.
- Just a Kid: Subverted. Probably due to their defeat at the hands of Micheal, Cipher for the most part actually takes the J-Team seriously as a threat.
- Knight of Cerebus: Every time they show up IRP, bad things follow soon after and the RP takes on a darker tone.
- The Man Behind the Man: They helped Ghetsis shadow Kyurem, and had remnants of the Pokémon Pinchers, Go-Rock Squad, and Team Dim Sun on their payroll.
- Mind Rape: What they do to mons to turn them into Shadow Pokémon.

Cipher Grandmaster ArdosCipher's Grandmaster following the capture of Greevil and Eldes.
- Bad Boss: Implied, since the Orre Admins did not want him getting directly involved in Orre's events, and in his backstory he was going to blow up Citadark Isle and everyone on it after Greevil lost to Micheal. It's also worth noting that following the fall of the Orre branch most if not all of the Cipher personnel that escaped the J-Team didn't try coming back to him.
- Dragon Ascendant: Took the job of Cipher Grandmaster after Greevil was jailed.
- Greater Scope Villain: Despite being responsible for most of the proto-J-Team's early foes, and the man everyone in Cipher answers to, he has yet to be directly opposed by the J-Team, with only Gamer, Silent, and Ever having met him directly, and only the latter getting a chance to battle him, however briefly.

- Captain Ersatz: Of Vladimir Makarov, according to Word of God.
- Chekhov's Gunman: Was the Cipher Peon from Tagg's backstory.
- Combat Pragmatist: Has his men arm themselves with firearms as well as mons, and dropped flashbangs on the J-Team rather than face them with a numerical disadvantage.

- Eye Scream: Loses an eye thanks to Tagg's Aura blade in a fit of rage.

- Knight of Cerebus: Things got a lot darker once he showed up to collect the last Cipher scientist in Holon.

- Would Hit a Girl: Tokarev pistol whipped Shadow!Crewe about twice for insubordination.
- Would Hurt a Child: Tried to kill Tagg for being a witness when he was 13.

- Good Scars, Evil Scars: After fighting Tagg and Pi, he gets acid-scarred due to a well aimed Toxic from Habitus.

- The Mole: Becomes one for Tagg in the Illusion Project.
- Reformed, but Rejected: A lot of the J-Team only tolerates his presence at best due to him nearly killing several of them. Lucius for instance absolutely despises him and beat him down unprovoked, and his own purified Shadows stick with him mainly due to the Vow rather than any true love for him. Tagg is surprisingly one of the only J-Team members who doesn't despise him despite having tried to kill him in their last fight, though he doesn't trust him fully.

The group as a whole
- Anti-Villain: To varying degrees.
- Affably Evil: Most of the members. Wound and Thief are all-around Jerkasses, and in Choice and Effigy's case, this is a facade.
- Mad Scientist: Many of them to an extent. Wound in particular stands out.
- Malevolent Masked Men: They all wear masks, both in their meetings and in public.

- Doppelgänger Attack: Uses her Ditto to pull these off.

- Undying Loyalty: Ironically, given her name, she is probably the most loyal member of the Octet. She's the only one by Iulianus' side when the Large Underground Room is attacked. That loyalty is the cause of her death.

Given a Commander position and his own lab so as to not come into inevitable conflict with other scientists due to his terrible interpersonal skills.
- Black Box: The Feng Shui engine he created seems to enhance the Auric capabilities of the user... It might also have other side effects, especially on the user's psyche.
- Evil Old Folks: He's an evil old Cipher scientist.
- For Science!: He cares little for the suffering his research entails, just so long as his experiments are fruitful.
- Four Eyes, Zero Soul: His moral compass was sent askew a long time ago, and his gaunt, pale features put his reflective glasses in stark contrast.

- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Echo herself is, though her underlings range from this to mere sadists.

- An Ice Person: Is an Ice monotyper.
- Casting a Shadow: As a Dark Obscuric, it comes with the territory.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Despite her intimidating appearance and weird mannerisms, she's probably the most approachable and least psychotic of the Illusion Admins.
- Malevolent Masked Man: Well, woman, but she wears a face-concealing gas mask, though whether or not she counts as "malevolent" depends on who you're talking to.
- Strange-Syntax Speaker: Never uses first-person pronouns, except when she loses her temper.
Cipher Commander Kyrie (Full name: Valkyrie Elaine Jacobs)Formerly a Peon working under Verax, Kyrie was recently promoted to Commander.
- Ambiguous Disorder: She has some sort of mental illness, but it's unclear what.

- Norse by Norsewest: Her maternal grandmother was from the Pokeworld equivalent of Norway.

- Politically Incorrect Villain: Calls Joseph a faggot on two different occasions, though she might just be saying it to get a rise out of Pi/Munn.
- Psychopathic Manchild: Well, womanchild, and it's zig-zagged somewhat. Kyrie can switch from childlike insults to a Cluster F-Bomb at the drop of a hat.
- Sadist: Somewhat different from other Cipher members such as Paula, however: while Paula is terribly fond of emotional suffering, Kyrie would much rather bash people's heads in.
- Softspoken Sadist: Her Froslass, Bathory.
- Shout-Out: All of her mons are named after things.. We have Emilie the Kricketune, Jimi the Bouffalant, and Ophelia the Lilligant. Her Froslass, Bathory, is named after a famous murderess, Elizabeth Bathory.

- Dual Wielding: Dual wields Auric kali sticks.

- Heel Realization: Has one after Lucius and Psyche work together in order to have the former give him a "Reason You Suck" Speech, though it's not quite enough to fully make him stop his plans right until the Ranger-2 arc.
- Kick the Dog: Despite not being completely evil, Titan has shown himself to be capable of doing some really dickish acts such as:
- Having Regina Shadowed mainly to prove a point to Jacob about how unmatched he was, sending him into a Heroic B.S.O.D..
- He abandoned his own niece Psyche to a life on the streets in an attempt at grooming her for life as a career criminal and demonstrated no signs of repentance whatsoever upon being confronted about it.
- Manipulative Bastard: Hardly a master at his game, but still has enough skill at manipulating emotions to keep Shadow!Crewe under his thumb during the Orre arc.
- Morality Pet: Shadow!Crewe, of all people, starts to become one to him during the Orre arc, and he has shown that he still cares about his son.
- Noble Bigot: Titan proves to have his good qualities, but even after his Heel–Face Turn still hasn't completely excised his views on Pokémon being generally inferior to humans.

- Papa Wolf: Never try to hurt Lucius in front of him.

- The Unfettered: Attempts to maintain this image, with varying degrees of success.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Much like Cyrus he seeks to create a better world.
- Wicked Cultured: He's very well-spoken, his Pokemon are named after the letters of the Greek alphabet, and he often quotes Shakespeare in conversation. However, he is incapable of speaking the Pokéverse equivalent of Latin.
- You Are a Credit to Your Race: Tells Crow that he did well "for a Murkrow" after a successful mission in the Haruba Desert, and thinks of Omega as different from other mons.

Cipher Peon Aelia Morgan / Neo-Galactic Commander IoA Peon working under Titan, as well as one of Cipher's scientists. She is also a descendant of Fukurou.

- She is however a closer one to Maggie since they're both cousins and she snagged Tide from her.
- Ascended Extra: Started off as a nameless Shady Scientist in Holon before becoming a major antagonist in Orre.
- For the Evulz: Her having Shadow!Crewe attack Straw on his birthday basically breaks down to this.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a set of disfiguring scars running across her face, courtesy of Crewe.
- Hot Scientist: At least according to her she was pretty attractive prior to her scarring.
- Kick the Dog:
- The aforementioned having Shadow!Crewe attack Straw on his birthday solely to make him suffer.
- When Maggie and Tide confront her on Shadowing the latter, especially given the fact that Tide was her original starter, she replies that Tide is "far more useful when she can actually work up the guts to hurt something instead of cowering in the corner."

- Unholy Matrimony: Was in a relationship with Deimos, until he died.
Cipher Admin Alexiel/Allen AvadoniaHead of Cipher's Resources department and also a very capable thief.
- Arch-Enemy: Lucius's, though the feeling isn't mutual as Alexiel considers him to be be merely an annoyance.
- Bait-and-Switch Boss: Appeared to be ready to face Lucius, Crow and Tagg alongside Titan, but he instead makes an excuse to run away and leave Titan to fight alone.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Acts extremely silly, but is actually quite competent.
- Crazy-Prepared: He knew exactly what to do to keep Lyuri under his command and no matter what they tried, Crow, Duke, Lucius and Lyuri could do nothing to stop him from escaping, he successfully knocked out Ghostus to prevent a Mean Look and bluffed about a hostage and once that plan failed against Lucius, who blocked all exits through Gamma, he simply teleported out with a Gallade's help.
- Double Agent: Serves as one for Titan in the Illusion Project.
- Faux Affably Evil: He's silly and keeps a very casual attitude, which only makes his sadism even more noticeable.
- Enigmatic Minion: Nothing is known about him other than his name and even then it's hard to tell if it's his real one or not. As we learn later, it isn't.
- Everyone Has Standards: Just about everyone, hero and villain alike, dislikes Alexiel, with Titan only letting him stay around in Neo-Galactic because he's useful and makes it very clear that he'll kill him if he tries to betray him.

- Master of Illusion: His Zoroark makes a lot of use of his Illusion ability.
- The Mole: Managed to infiltrate the PEFE as Hikari's assistant.
- Morality Pet: His sister, Alexia, and his Zoroark seem to be the only things he cares about, at least he cares enough about the latter enough to not turn it into a Shadow Pokémon. In Alexia's case, it's subverted when it's revealed that she was Lyuri and that she was blackmailed by him into working for Cipher.
- Ninja: Part of his motif, he even carries kunais with him.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: He may act silly, but he's very smart and does his job very well.
- Offscreen Teleportation: Literally pops up from the ground in front of two random peons when being talked about.
- Paranoia Fuel: Invoked. Tries to invoke this on Lucius with relative success and is indirectly responsible for Sakura's paranoia. This is also how he managed to get Lyuri completely under his control.
- Phantom Thief: The other part of his motif.
- The Reveal: He turns out to be Hikari's assistant, Allen.
- Rule of Cool: He invokes this, preferring to make things in flashy ways instead of just doing them in a more sensible way.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Decides to run from the Resources HQ instead of trying to defend it via secret exit.
- Signature Move: Zoroark is his signature mon.
- Villainous Breakdown: A mild one after the warehouse incident. It doesn't take too long before he's back to causing trouble.

- Just Between You and Me: Mammor does this to Ren regarding how he ruined his leg.
- Mind Rape: Gets subjected to this by his own fears and is left a shell of a man after making one last attempt on Ren.
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Mammor would have gotten his promotion is he hadn't started to gloat about how his previous plans with Ren failed but succeeded this time, thus pressing Ren's Berserk Button and sending Ren into a Tranquil Fury state allowing him to escape.
- Revenge Before Reason: His main flaw, pursuing revenge on those who have wronged or managed to best him somehow no matter what.
- Somebody Set Up Us the Bomb:
- Mammor does this with an Electrode to Pent, Sam, and Tesse via Teleport during the Resources raid.
- Then he pulls it again on the same three during the R+D raid.
- Attempted twice during the finale. The first time the the bomb turned out to be a dud. The second time Mammor ordered his Shadow Golem to use Explosion, but this was stopped due to the timely arrival of a Delta Psyduck with the Damp ability.
- Whip It Good: Mammor has a glowing red energy whip as his personal weapon.

- Evil Is Petty: Zrone doesn't take losses well, and has Tagg and others on his hit list for their part in disrupting his plans.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Has built robot guardians, robots with functioning Protean abilities, performed his own cyborg enhancement surgeries, invented an indestructible defense system, a staff that manipulates time-space, and a massive bipedal artillery robot that could sustain attacks from three full teams at once while giving as good as it got. Required, since he knows he's so awful at working with his own Pokémon, he has to make up for it.
- Half the Man He Used to Be: Gets torn in half during the Boyleland Heatran's rampage, but survives due to being a cyborg and puts himself back together by the time of the Avalon battle, though it still leaves Tagg, Blitz, and Jacob wondering how he managed to survive that.
- Lack of Empathy: His reaction when Tagg cites his crimes of unethical experimentation, attempted murder, and tendency to backstab as reasons he and the others refuse to form a partnership with him to fight Glitches during Re: Glitch is to simply remark that he sees all lives as expendable, including his own.
- The Paranoiac: Zrone is an extremely paranoid person who trusts next to no one.
- Pragmatic Villainy: When trying to form an alliance with the J-Team he argues that he'll continue his experiments but leave them alone because fighting them hasn't turned out well for him.
- Smug Snake: The only thing bigger than Zrone's paranoia is perhaps his sense of arrogance, especially when he thinks he's won.

- Visionary Villain: Dreams of an independent humanity without Pokémon.
- We Will Meet Again: Says this verbatim almost every time he manages to escape.

- Only in It for the Money: Hunts Tagg, Crow, Jacob, and Verax mainly because Zrone is paying him to.
- Politically Incorrect Villain: Like his namesake, he's bigoted against human/mon relationships according to Word of God, though he's yet to properly exercise this.
- Signature Move: Tsubame Gaeshi, a sword technique using an odachi construct that tends to kill pretty much anything that isn't properly armored.
- Soul Power: Is a Ghost Obscuric.
- Captain Ersatz: Of the same group from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.

- Abusive Parents: Mentions that his father treated him badly due to his powers, and his mother was neglectful.
- All Love Is Unrequited:
- Has a crush on Sol, but she only sees him as a friend. The "friend" part evaporates once she figures out Constantin's true nature.
- Though it's revealed later by Lars that she possibly had feelings for him as well caused by nearly a year of separation from Tagg.
- Ambiguous Disorder: He has something off with him, showing signs of sociopathy/APD, bi-polarism and schizophrenia in particular, but the exact disorder remains unknown due to his refusal to see a psychologist.
- Aristocrats Are Evil: From a formerly aristocratic family, grew up in an aristocratic environment, and nasty as hell.
- Axe Crazy: He's murderously insane beneath his mask.

- Bastard Bastard: Shaka confesses to Tagg that Constantin was the result of an affair his mother had with another man.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Can be quite polite and nice-seeming, but if his veneer gets chipped off his true nasty personality comes forth.

- Bloody Murder: Can manipulate his own exposed blood using telekinesis.
- Born Unlucky: Nothing ever goes in his favor, even when it seems to. Maybe being born on January 13th, 1989 has something to do with it.

- Brains and Brawn: The Brawn to Odin's Brain.
- Chick Magnet: Is actually pretty smooth with the ladies.
- Depraved Bisexual: Revealed during the third major fight. Word of God states that part of the reason Constantin hates Tagg so much apart from his obsession with Sol is that he can't process his attraction to him.
- Desperately Craves Affection: Due to being neglected and abused as a child, he desperately craves the love and affection of others in an incredibly unhealthy manner.
- Eye Scream: In his third fight involving Tagg, Sol manages to crush his left eye with one of her Obscura tentacles in a surprise attack.

- Hero Killer: Managed to kill both Tagg and Sol in Salvador's native timeline.
- Hindu Mythology: According to Word of God, Constantin's habits in combat are based on that of the Hindu goddess Kali, though he is not even close to a good force like she is.

- In Love with the Mark: Was originally Fool's guide because Team Flare wanted info on the J-Team, but ended up falling in love with her.
- Internalized Categorism: Despite the fact that he is quite racist, he himself is half Romani from his father's side. He's aware of this and hates himself for it, but feels that it traps him to be nothing more than a thief.
- Lean and Mean: Is about 6'3", thin, and very mean.
- Love Hungry: Before it was revealed how much of an ass he was, he attempted to deceive and manipulate Solana into loving him over Tagg. Even going as far as attempted sabotage and outright attempted murder.
- Mama's Baby, Papa's Maybe:
- Both Snowman and Remy's grandmother infer that Constantin could possibly be the result of an affair his mother had with another man since the Perilloux's disliked Aurics.
- Confirmed to be the case during a conversation with Shaka. As his "father" was sterile.
- Man of Wealth and Taste / Sharp-Dressed Man: Dresses in a sophisticated manner, but it only seems to highlight his slimy nature. Though it seems like sometimes it looks like he just came out of the Kalosian Enlightenment Age with that justaucorps he always wears.
- Manipulative Bastard: Is quite skilled at playing people's emotions against them and twisting words to suit his ends.
- Mind Rape: Manages to do this to Tagg, though he manages to recover the day after thanks to the help of Ever and PEFE!Every.
- Mixed Ancestry: Romani on his biological father's side, PokéEnglish on his mother's.
- Morality Pet:
- Despite mostly being a horrible person, he does truly care about Fool, who he refers to as mon piaf.
- This gets thrown out of the window come the first Neo-Flare base raid. Now he wants her head too, literally.
- My Master, Right or Wrong: His mons are mostly aware that he's not right in the head, but the Vow keeps them by his side.
- Noble Male, Roguish Male: Appears to be the Noble to Tagg's Roguish on the surface, but under actual inspection it's inverted.
- Overly Long Name: His full name is Constantin Minucius Rufus Perilloux.
- Pet the Dog:
- Despite being racist and kind of a bully he's friendly towards children.
- He also seems to genuinely care about his Pokémon. Specifically Shaka and Kahina.
- Politically Incorrect Villain: As a former Flare member, he still shares their philosophy on what should be done with "deadwood" and is quite racist, having referred to Tagg as a "filthy negré" on two separate occasions.
- Power at a Price: Can use the Gates, but his overuse of them over the years has shortened his lifespan by decades and ruined his health. According to both Salvador and Word of God, he has roughly 11 years left before dying. He's only about 26.

- Psychic-Assisted Suicide: How he killed his parents.

- The Red Oni to Tagg's Blue.
- As well as the Red Oni to Odin's Blue.
- And the Red to his son Salvador's Blue.

- Self-Made Orphan: Shaka reveals to Tagg that Constantin ended up killing his parents at 15 for their abuse.
- Start of Darkness: His Alakazam Brutus dying had a major effect on his psyche.
- Sympathy for the Devil: Upon learning his backstory Tagg feels a little pity for him despite all the trouble Constantin has caused him, though he still tries to stop him at every opportunity.
- Tall, Dark and Snarky: Certainly doesn't suffer from a shortage of sarcastic opinions (even if he's blond rather than dark haired).
- Too Kinky to Torture: As evident by the attempted interrogation of Constantin, it seems that torture pleases him more than pains him (not to mention he seems to be quite fond of the anthologies of the Marquis de Sade and Leopold Sacher-Masoch.)
- Torture Technician: His original job back when he was in Team Flare was the torture using interrogator.
- The Unfettered: Constantin has no issue using whatever means necessary to achieve his goals.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Was very sweet natured as a child until Brutus died.
- Whip It Good: Can use his telekinesis to make a whip out of his blood.
- Wicked Cultured: Certainly has a taste for the fine arts.
- With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Is far more powerful when his limiters are off or are slacked, but it comes at the cost of his mental stability.
- Worthy Opponent: Admits during his confrontation with Tagg and Sol that he's gained a grudging respect for them due to their being such massive thorns in his side, though it just makes him want to take their heads as trophies upon killing them.
- Yank the Dog's Chain: Every time things seem to be going his way, his gains get taken away with him. Though It can be hard to feel sorry for him.
Shaka the GalladeOne of Constantin's first mons, and one of his most loyal.
- Battle Butler: Takes on this role for Constantin.
- Foil: To Muddy, as the two mons have been with their trainers for roughly similar amounts of time, but their interpretations of the Vow differ. This also stretches to their fighting styles, as like the rest of Tagg's mons he tends to be a Barrier Warrior while Shaka's style is mostly offensive.
- Hero Killer: Killed Muddy in Salvador's native timeline with a Leaf Blade right through the throat, which his future self regrets to this day.
- Honor Before Reason: Is honor bound to The Vow despite knowing the awful actions of his trainer.
- The Jeeves: He's very polite, quite devoted to his trainer and much more level headed than him too.
- My Master, Right or Wrong: He loyally obeys Constantin's orders despite knowing how cruel and morally bankrupt most of them are and hating it.
- Punch Clock Villain: Despite being loyal to Constantin and willing to do his dirty work due to his interpretation of the Vow, Shaka isn't evil at all.
- Servile Snarker: Is quite sarcastic most of the time.
- Undying Loyalty: A Deconstructed version of this trope.
- Worthy Opponent: Considers Muddy this, and the feeling's mutual.
Kahina the MedichamAn elderly Medicham who is another one of Constantin's oldest and most loyal Pokemon.

- Undying Loyalty: Towards her trainer, despite him being destructive.
Neo-Flare Admin Maria von BoehmA feisty, vain and beautiful PokeGerman weapons enthusiast who heads the Espionage & Interrogation department of Neo-Flare, as well as managing the Armory and recruit training. She is quite the flirt, and constantly peruses Constantin.
- All Girls Want Bad Boys: Has a preference for the none-too-nice guys who give her the cold shoulder. Though it's understandable, as she isn't a paragon of purity herself.

- Aristocrats Are Evil: She's actually is a member of an established PokeGerman noble family, complete with a Family Bramble befitting of European nobility (including some Habsburg heritage!).

- Ax-Crazy: She's violently mentally unstable and her weapon of choice is even a halberd.
- Bad Boss: Is this towards her assistant Marcus.
- The Baroness: Sexpot variety. The German accent helps.

- Love Freak: Was a Shipper on Deck for a while, though this is more muted now that she is an admin.
- Mad Love: Is like this towards Constantin and Marcus.

- Out with a Bang: According to Word of God some of her past suitors were killed when her attempts at erotic asphyxiation just turned into asphyxiation.

- Yandere: Will violently murder any and all threats to her getting with a romantic interest if given the chance.

- Artificial Limbs: Cut off his own arm to replace it with a state of the art cybernetic limb that can be used for pretty much anything.

- Fan Boy: Goes on hours long gushes of Stefan Galaxy and Brigoo when hosting for Brie and Pianis.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Is an absolutely brilliant robotics inventor.

- Just Following Orders: Most of his actions in Neo-Flare by this point are more of Constantin's commands than any actual real malice on Lex's part.
- Kid from the Future: Cleo and Leonard's child from the same Bad Future Salvador and Lillianna come from.
- Lovable Coward: He's not the bravest of individuals, but still pretty likable.
- Nervous Wreck: Most of the time he's pretty nervous due to the less than moral people he's around.

- Reluctant Mad Scientist: Is more interested in inventing itself than actually assisting with Neo-Flares' mad plans.

Neo-Flare Secretary Marcus C. RothschildMaria's suave and stoic PokeBritish Hypercompetent Sidekick. Incredibly formal and business minded, he manages Finance and Stocktake in Neo-Flare.

- Informed Judaism: Was mentioned to have celebrated Rosh Hashanah. Justified in that his current environment wouldn't be too welcoming to the fact, and thus he keeps quiet about it.

- Surrounded by Idiots: Frequently picks up the slack of the other employees.
- Tall, Dark and Snarky: Quite the looker and the snarker.
Neo-Flare Admin LiúThe recently hired Manager of the Armory and "Public Relations." A serene and calm [Shanghainese] man, he was already an established arms and drug dealer in the underground world before being hired by Neo-Flare.
- Bile Fascination: The only reason he joined Neo Flare in the first place is because he was curious about Lex's inventions and Constantin's knowledge of the Gates. He otherwise has no true loyalty towards Neo Flare.
- Captain Ersatz: Of Lau.
- Erudite Stoner: His chilled out attitude might be due to the fact that he's often — at the very least perceived — to be on some sort of drug.

- Perpetual Smiler: Has a smile that never falters.

Cipher Admin/Illusion Member/Neo-Flare Admin Odin/Maxwell RubeloffThe utterly amoral head of Cipher's R&D department who seems to have a grudge against Lina. He also happens to be Constantin's cousin.

- Hoist by His Own Petard: His capture and corruption of Ilya is exactly what got him in the end.
- Just Desserts: Gets Eaten Alive by Ilya after the final battle with him.

- Mismatched Eyes: Has one red eye and one blue eye. Again, because his appearance is based on Vincent Nightray (Merely having a blue eye instead of a yellow one.)

- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Has a massive phobia of the Beldum line in general and Metagross in particular, which Tokarev mocks him about at one point. This ends up being because his father was killed by Chrome during his rescue of Lina. He manages to get over it by the Orre climax though, unfortunately for Chrome.
- Would Hit a Girl: Gave Shadow!Crewe a nasty mark by striking her.
- You Killed My Father: The main reason he wants revenge on Lina and Chrome, as the latter killed his father rescuing the former.
