Darth Wiki: Operation G
A fictional Fighting Game by Wax.
In a futuristic world, a well-known fighting tournament organizer named Ringoto Teisou is working on a secret but undoubtedly sinister project. He is rumored to be in the first stage, collectively called "Operation G". Its content and goals are unknown to all but his four head executives and Ringoto himself. In front of that persistent veil, several parties and private groups side against the project.
Several tournaments are organized, and teams form to either protect or cancel Operation G before it concludes.
It is divided in 10 story arcs, after the introduction:
  • Ground Zero Tour: Niki organizes a tournament in Ground Zero, a huge tower. He's in fact aiming to bring down the enemies to Operation G in one shot.
  • Mystery East Tour: A solo female-only tournament. It's organized by Miki who orchestrated a trap for Houka to fall in so she could kidnap her off of the rest of her team.
  • Vector 41-009 Arc: Touma is on a mission to bait the anti-Operation G teams using a fighting tournament. It's Team Konryuu and Team Ranken's introduction arc. A former Operation G study lab was repurposed for that tournament.
  • High Point Tour: Tatsuya organizes a solo tournament with very selected contestants. It's Team Kokujin and Team Jundou's introductory arc. In fact, they make up most of the contestants in the tournament.
  • Red Leaf Tour: Akina and the Reitou ninja clan organize this tournament under an official guise. It's Team Kouei's introductory arc.
  • Nameless Tournament: Natsuki uses this suspicious tournament to bait anti-Operation G teams and run some unknown measurement tests.
  • True Ground Zero Tour: Hakkou organizes a tournament aboard a dropped colony.
  • Silverwing Tour: Ginshi organizes a tournament aboard her huge flying aircraft. It's Team Magou's introductory arc.
  • Operation O: Eiko is alive, Operation G is a success. The anti-Operation G teams grow desperate, as Ringoto immediately cuts ties with everyone of his coworkers. Everyone starts searching for him.
  • Stream Arc: Ringoto heads for the Stream
  • The sequel, Operation G Reloaded. BEWARE: Spoilers to the ending of Operation G are on the other end of this link! Browse carefully.


Operation G contains examples of:

  • Action Girl: One per team, and they have to be.
  • An Aesop: If you're too bent on making things go your way, that will bring nothing good.
  • Badass Family / Big Screwed-Up Family: And there's many of them.
    • The Teisou family, despite originating in Japan, has now extended to the whole world. In fact, the main characters belonging to this family all are European: Ringoto is German, Setsuna is French, Torou and Kintou are Spanish.
    • The Kokuu brothers count as being entirely screwed up, but the three are badass.
    • The Seichi count too, aside from Hakkou's isolation from his family's lifestyle. Of course, his nephews being on the Operation G side make them a screwed-up family.
    • Not really family, but the orphanage Akina works in has gathered many characters together. Houka, Tenko, Izumi and Haruka all live (or lived just before Operation G started) there; not to mention the visits of Touma, Niki and Miki (who in fact is the one funding it).
    • The two Yoshimoto brothers subvert this by not really knowing each other.
    • The Zanjima are definitely screwed up, by virtue of Tatsuya being married to Natsuki.
  • Bishōnen: All over the damn place.
  • Blessed with Suck: Three examples running running rampant.
    • The first is a magical genetic alteration that makes one naturally strong, but also gives a One-Winged Angel Superpowered Evil Side that can be triggered consciously, but usually is used unconsciously due to excess of negative emotion; it also tends to automatically trigger when darkness magic is used. It also gives a Healing Factor, though it is mitigated by the Painful Transformation coming beforehand. Fuushi and Kiyoshi, but also Natsuki have this one.
    • The second is In the Blood, and gives the mindset of a machine of destruction, making them ignore everything. This is done by reacting to a magic trigger. Setsuna, Kiyoshi and Akemi have it. The three members of Team Kokujin, Ringoto and Mashin can trigger this. This power is also held by Kuuki, Aoshi and Haruka, but only they can trigger it, and they are unaffected by any other trigger. Ginshi is like those three, but much weaker and without any mentality alteration. This affliction was created by Mashin in the first place, using portions of his soul to taint people, and then regain back even more power at the expense of the lives of the triggers.
    • The third is a magical gift (or rather, an innate dark magical energy type) that enhances power at the expense of almost everything else, making everyone affected a severe Blood Knight. It also make them able to sense other lifeforms with that same energy. Seino and Tsuyoshi possess it, with Tsuyoshi fully accepting it and Seino struggling against it. It has a counteracting opposite which Karyu and Hakkou have (unwittingly so for Karyu until the later parts).
    • Irony: Kiyoshi is affected by the first two above afflictions simultaneously, which makes his status as the leader of Team Jundou (and it means "pure path") all the harder to not make seem a sick joke.
  • Boss Rush: The ending to the Silverwing Tour Arc. All the anti-Operation G teams have to fight, in order, Team Magou (voluntarily not putting up a fight), the four head executives, and then Mashin whips out Houka-2.
    • Not counting the Stream Arc, since all bosses have been met and fought before except Ringoto and Mashin.
  • Good Is Not Soft: A good chunk of the anti-Operation G cast, if not everyone of them.
  • Grey and Gray Morality: Evil characters have some good traits and good characters do nasty things. Only a few characters are exempted.
  • Kill 'em All: The ending is almost this, with very few survivors to speak of it.
  • Light Is Not Good: Ringoto, the Big Bad, dresses mostly in light colors. And Mashin is a very evil man in white.
  • Mega Corp.: Number Zero. Over half the characters can somehow relate to it.
  • National Stereotypes: Loads of them are exposed, and the fighting fields each have their own reputation.
    • Britain is too focused on elegance.
    • China is rumored to shoo out people who don't practice some kind of kung-fu out of their competitive fields.
    • France's competitive fighters are still at best Cowardly Lion.
    • Germany is rumored to be very linear and straightforward.
    • Italy is said to be way too flashy to realize how much the competitive scene is impotent in contrast to the others.
    • Mexico is all about lucha libre, and everyone there has a quick style.
    • Spain doesn't have much of a reputation for fighting, because they're all "matadors" apparently.
    • Thailand is Muay Thai. Seriously, that's their reputation.
    • The USA are Boring, but Practical. They're regarded often as more boring, though.
  • Not Just a Tournament: Every damn time, for obvious reasons.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: To its parent fiction A-Ko Project. Certain aspects are inverted: Operation G is portrayed in a much more negative light, and only four characters (Koukyu, Tsuyoshi, Keiko and Akina) survive.
    • Shout-Out / Recycled Script: In A-Ko Project, Chiaki gets kidnapped and brainwashed. In Operation G, Houka gets a brainwashed and crazy clone. In Reloaded, she ends up being kidnapped and brainwashed the same as Chiaki.
  • Title Drop: Operation G can refer to the work, or Ringoto's plan.
  • Two Guys and a Girl: The teams.
  • Villains Act, Heroes React: More exactly, Villain Protagonists Act Hero Antagonists React: The Operation G staff is the acting faction.
    • Inverted Trope: Team Ougoku itself doesn't act, except by protecting Niki from the teams intent on stopping the project.

Characters:

Operation G has Loads and Loads of Characters, so they are sorted by teams.

    open/close all folders 

Anti-Operation G teams:

    Team Mugen 
Supervised by: Miki Yagawa
Captain: Shiro Kokuu
Other members: Karyu Nantogan, Tenko Sanjou

Tropes associated with the team:

  • Child Prodigy: All three members were examples, to an extent. Shiro having a power-nullifying natural gift, Karyu for being so proficient at Taek Won Do, and Tenko being just a self-taught fighting prodigy who wins many fights with no actual fighting training.
  • Hero Antagonist: In contrast to Team Ougoku, they look and act the part of a hero, except that they are against Operation G.
    • Their attack on Team Magou drops the hero part: it was only justified by Team Magou's treachery, even though Team Magou's gambit basically helped them, despite failing.
  • The Rival: Shiro is Kuuki's, Karyu is Koukyu's and Tenko is Houka's; and so for a good chunk of the plot.

Tropes associated with Shiro:

Tropes associated with Karyu:

  • Bring It: He loves taunting and being flashy, and overuses this trope.
  • But Not Too Foreign: Averted. He's born 100% American, but eventually came to live in Japan.
  • Composite Character: He had a lot of different educations. By now he has traits of his own childish bratty persona, his parents' American fighter mentality, and his rival Seino's rigorousness.
  • The Four Gods: Notices a vibe when he sees Seino and Akira.
    "Okay, did you guys bring a Genbu too?"
  • Handsome Lech: Sort of since he's still young, but definitely heading into this.
  • Hot-Blooded: Karyu is a name he made up. Fittingly enough.
  • Hurricane Kick: No, he doesn't fly.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Not really assholish, but his taunting and braggish attitude can tick off more than one person.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: The start of everything that happened in his life. He felt lonely, so he decided to annoy other people to get noticed. This got him sent in Korea for reeducation, where he grew his heart of gold and his fighting skills.
  • Mr. Fanservice: In-universe, he has a lot of fangirls, including Keiko.
  • Mr. Vice Guy: In a way. He likes money, women, and getting in a good brawl.
  • The Rival: He has a bunch of them of them. Koukyu, Seino, name your choice.
  • Shoryuken: Has one, evidently.

Tropes associated with Tenko:

  • Badass Bookworm / Cute Bookworm: Mid-Heroic BSOD, she started reading because she thought about not being able to fight at high levels anymore. Even after it, she still tries to be this, but just fails to understand books, because she has been skipping lessons all her childhood. Her failings are Played for Laughs.
  • Berserk Button: If you ever try to undermine her Smug Super boasting. Yes, even post-Heroic BSOD.
  • Bokukko
  • Born Winner: She almost never trains and wins at least half her fights even at elite levels.
  • Dishing Out Dirt
  • Doppelgänger Attack: Her Mahouken Geneizan.
  • Dumb Blonde: Part of her hair is blonde.
  • For the Lulz: Her life with her secluded family felt so boring that she felt the need to drop out of her house.
  • Jerkass: Of sorts. Since she has been labeled a prodigy by her master, she's arrogant when it comes to fighting. Even Karyu says it's exaggerated, and of course she won't listen to anyone who can't beat her, unless Shiro and Karyu both tell her to shut up. Until her Heroic BSOD, that is.
  • Just a Kid: She behaves like a child despite being 16, for the sole reason that her parents neglected her education and left her upbringing to others. Also, she did drop out of her house several times and she has a penchant for skipping her home lessons.
  • One-Winged Angel: Has one such form, but usually refuses to use it because it's ugly.
    • She still goes with it for the last arc.
  • Playing with Fire: Kintou has a sword of Hard Light. She has sword motifs too, but her magic sword is made of magical densified fire.
  • Smug Super: She rarely ever lost a match for a good portion of the plot (she even wins the Mystery East Tour on her own), which made her Insufferable Genius attitude worse and worse with the passage of time. From the Nameless Tournament Arc and for a good time after it, she gets given several attitude adjustments that greatly diminish her ego.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: On One-Winged Angel form.

Tropes associated with Miki:

  • Action Girl: And she's positively big: 184 cm, 74 kg; that's 6' and 163 lbs. She has the frame of a man. (Coincidentally the same as Sol Badguy)
  • An Ice Person
  • Attack Reflector: Her Night Sky Cutter.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: She is skilled at Power Copying too. Demonstrated by showing off her Tornado Slicer she copied off Touma's Rinshuu - Rekkai. Torou and Akira know her Death Force is a technique from a training camp in China where they both studied.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Usually playing fair, but in the face of cheating, she will do what she has to do.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Even though Operation G staff respects her, Ginshi gets to see what she's ready to do for a good reputation. And she doesn't take kindly to Satome being trapped forever in a dimensional breach.
  • Christmas Cake: She's 29, and unmarried.
  • Clear My Name: A variant: she wants her brother Niki to avoid doing evil things because it is detrimental to her reputation.
  • Dance Battler: She mixes ballerina and other dances into her attacks. One of her moves is named Ballerina.
  • Finger Poke of Doom: Her Ultimate ends with this.
  • Happily Adopted: She's not born Japanese but Indonesian. The fact that an adopted child became the favorite of the family is the source of her problems with Niki.
  • Not in This for Your Revolution: She's against Operation G partially just to grab more influence and good PR, which angers Ginshi a great deal especially given what she's done for it.
  • Power Limiter: Her bracelets are one. Even though she takes them off against Ginshi, both die in the ensuing battle.
  • The Stoic: She has her moments.
  • Sweet Tooth: It's even this common point with Houka that causes Miki to see her outside a fight before anyone else after Houka's defection.
  • Worthy Opponent: Considered this by many of the Operation G staff. Except Niki. Ginshi replaces him on the hate-train when she gets a hold of Miki's intention and what she's ready to do for it (read:trap Satome in a Pocket Dimension for as long as she's alive).
    Team Ranken 
Supervised by: Hakkou Seichi
Captain: Kim Tae-yeong
Other members: Torou Teisou, Keiko Seichi

Tropes associated with the team:

  • The Big Guy: Except Tae-yeong - who's no slouch in this domain either - the team is composed of the heaviest hitters in their side. Also, they are the Mighty Glacier type, except Tae-yeong.
  • Not So Harmless Hero Antagonist: While Torou and Keiko look serious, Tae-yeong's gests and attitude caused Team Ougoku to dismiss them as a real threat. And then, Tae-yeong pops up backstage and - unhindered by anything - attacks Touma directly.

Tropes associated with Tae-yeong:

Tropes associated with Torou:

Tropes associated with Keiko:

  • Angst: She asks herself why her brothers work for the Operation G staff, because this makes them her enemies. And of course she angsts some more after Seino dies.
  • Badass Normal: Her level in magic is abysmally low, yet she's as capable as the other girls, perhaps moreso, despite being a rookie.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Has taken this approach in order to be as strong as her brothers.
  • Cute Bruiser: This is a total opposite of her brothers. While Seino and Tsuyoshi are known for their gifts in using magic (namely fireballs), she's at her best up close and personal.
  • Determinator: She can receive far more punishment than other girls. As well, she's absurdly insistent in looking for Seino, and comes back like a boomerang when Akira and Setsuna send her buzzing off. Another note? After she and Tae-yeong attack Eiko after she killed Tatsuya, she actually survives the injuries she sustains, while the same injuries kill Tae-yeong.
  • Flash Step: She aids herself with her mild earth magic. That's actually the only magic stuff she can do.
  • Hot-Blooded
  • Not so Above It All: While her attacks are usually named traditionally, she goofily named one of her self-created moves Keiko-geri.
  • Perpetual Frowner: She's definitely angsty about her brothers leaving and herself never being aided in leaving her family house. She has her few smiling moments, but that's for her teammates only.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs
  • Super Strength: She trained hard to have this.
  • This Is Unforgivable: When she hears about Ringoto having killed Seino. And then Torou. And some more when Tae-yeong dies, though at that point she faints due to injuries.
  • Tomboy
  • You Are What You Hate: To a degree: she hates the fact that her brothers ran away from home to learn other fighting styles, but she wound up doing the same by learning Muay Thai.

Tropes associated with Hakkou:

    Team Kokujin 
Supervised by: Tatsuya Zanjima
Captain: Fuushi Zanjima
Other members: Shakurou Kokuu, Izumi Umigiri

Tropes associated with the team:

Tropes associated with Fuushi:

Tropes associated with Shakurou:

Tropes associated with Izumi:

  • An Ice Person: Not that much in terms of behaviour, she's in fact Hot-Blooded and nicer than her teammates - if you don't make her angry.
  • Berserk Button: The word Baka. She tends to take it for herself and feel slighted.
  • Cell Phone: Makes extensive usage of hers since she's the only one on the team to go alone sometimes. Besides, she frequently contacts Akina and Miki.
  • The Ditz
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: Being lightweight even among girls, she uses this to get some momentum and power. Actually, since she did it so much, she's much more physically potent than she looks.
  • Fingerless Gloves
  • Foil: To both of her teammates, providing some "good" image with her idiotic and carefree attitude.
  • Multicolored Hair: Has strands of blue hair.
  • My Greatest Failure: Letting Haruka go while trying to retrieve Houka — and the fact that she got fooled by Niki into leaving Houka with him as well.
  • Not So Harmless: She looks like a lightweight idiot, which would make her a bottom-feeder, but she's actually stronger than the standards for girls.
  • Small Name, Big Ego
  • Tomboy: In attitude at least.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Ice cream.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Uses the Diamond Dust move often used by joshi (female Japanese wrestlers).

Tropes associated with Tatsuya:

  • Anime Hair
  • Badass
    • Badass Grandpa: 55 years old, but not technically a grandpa. And he never gets to be, since not only him but his two sons and his adoptive daughter all die.
    • Badass Normal: Uses magic sparingly, yet he is renowned for being nearly unbeatable head-on; and tough as crack.
    • Lamarck Was Right: Most definitely, his sons' strength and skill make him proud (and they definitely got some after him despite his notable lack of presence as a father). Them constantly fighting each other, not so much.
  • Clothes Make the Legend: Averted, he's renowned, but the outfit he wore while he was a fearsome fighter has gone unremembered.
  • Cool Old Guy
  • Determinator: Along with his body's natural toughness, this attribute explains why it's so hard for him to go down. He endures twice as big a beatdown as Eiko did to Hakkou, but he stil finally succumbs.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He had a fighting career, and many scars due to having fought so much.
  • Jerkass: Of sorts: he's infamous in the community for his reluctance with technological progress and its impact on fighting.
  • Living Legend: To a degree, but he was as hated as loved. Even while not fighting, he has mixed reception. His unlikely survivals made some people think he orchestrated fake attempts at taking his life.
  • Made of Iron: He's insanely tough, probably being the one who can take the most devilish beating out of the whole cast. He doesn't survive Eiko though.
  • May-December Romance: With Natsuki. She's 17 years younger than him.
    Ginshi: "How does it feel to live with someone who is younger than your adoptive daughter?"
  • Oh, Crap: When he sees Hakkou die to Eiko. He still fights her immediately, and gets killed too.
  • Pet the Dog: When he is told that Natsuki has used the tournament she organized for research, he expresses concern for Kiyoshi, and realizes getting married to Natsuki was a mistake. Though, he's 19 years too late.
  • Rated M for Manly: He was. And he shows obvious preferences towards manly men rather than bishies.
  • Refuge in Audacity: He thinks rather flamboyantly, and reacts just as audaciously about the slightest debate.
  • Spirited Competitor
  • Stone Wall
    Team Kouei 
Supervised by: Akina Chinai
Captain: Rigan Yoshimoto
Other members: Yuuji Uramichi, Akemi Reitou

Tropes associated with the team:

Tropes associated with Rigan:

  • Bash Brothers: Averted with Tae-yeong, who left him alone. He is looking for him when not in business, without success. He dies before meeting up with him properly.
  • Disappeared Dad: His father was killed. He doesn't seem to have as much Revenge as Tae-yeong inside him. Mostly because the man responsible is already dead.
  • Dynamic Entry
  • Fragile Speedster
  • Hair of Gold
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: Rigan's on par with Tae-yeong. Even though Rigan trained much harder.
  • Highly-Visible Ninja: He invokes this.
    "Ninja should be invisible by their own discretion, not that of their clothing."
  • Light 'em Up
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy
  • Masked Luchador: He trained several years in Mexico and has several lucha moves, even though he has no mask. He wrestled with Torou some times before the story.
  • The Stoic: Emotionally withdrawn is more appropriate.
    • Not So Stoic: When he hears rumors about a battle between his brother Tae-yeong and Touma (partially responsible for his father's death), he is hot-bloodedly disappointed.
  • Street Urchin: Was this after the murder of his father. He ran from the States to Mexico, and then to Japan where he became the ninja he is.
  • Technician Versus Performer: When you compare him to Tae-yeong, he's the technician. But if you compare him to Yuuji, he's the performer.

Tropes associated with Yuuji:

  • Badass Normal: Next to no magic talent, but still manages to be a contender.
  • Big Guy Fatality Syndrome: Regarding the team only is Yuuji the big guy, but he's the first character to die out of the entire cast.
  • Blow You Away
  • Boring, but Practical
  • But Not Too Foreign: Averted. He's fully American-blooded, but raised in Japan.
  • Fragile Speedster: Defied Trope. Even though he's a ninja, he will not fall prey to the stereotypes and adopt this lineup. Yuuji is noticeably stronger physically than Rigan.
    • Fridge Logic: He's born in the States, and his usual philosophy and fighting style are just Americanized versions of what he was taught.
  • He Knows Too Much: Why he died: he spotted Niki posing as Chouji killing the Reitou Clan's leader.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: His attitude in general.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Except his ridiculously bad level in magic, he isn't weak, moves fast, and hits fast.
  • Nice Shoes: He modernized the Reitou clan notably by proving by his fighting ability how those are better than sandals. This leads to funny arguments with Rigan (mostly because it's voluntary on Rigan's part since he wears boots, not sandals, and Yuuji fails to notice).
  • Spin Attack
  • The Stoic: So much.

Tropes associated with Akemi:

Tropes associated with Akina:

Pro-Operation G teams:

    Team Ougoku 
Supervised by: Niki Yagawa
Captain: Kuuki Kishitsu
Other members: Shadou Koukyu, Honbuki Houka

Tropes associated with the team:

Tropes associated with Kuuki:

Tropes associated with Koukyu:

Tropes associated with Houka:

Tropes associated with Niki:

    Team Konryuu 
Supervised by: Touma Todou
Captain: Seino Seichi
Other members: Akira Itou, Setsuna Teisou

Tropes associated with the team:

Tropes associated with Seino:

Tropes associated with Akira:

  • Action Fashionista: Of sorts: he has an iconic outfit, but it is classy.
  • Animal Motifs: The tiger. He picked it up after Seino named his moves after dragons, and suggested him Theme Naming.
  • Affably Evil: He gives a bit of his wealth to his coach to help finance Operation G, yet he is friendly to almost everybody. He even dates Keiko, though this only leads to her using him to get information on the team, leading to Tae-yeong taking Touma by surprise.
  • Braids of Action: Sometimes.
  • Death from Above: His Ultimate, White Tiger's Silver Arrow.
  • Dynamic Entry
  • Energy Ball: Fires some, but is not as gifted as Seino in this regard.
  • Extremity Extremist: He kicks really much, only using his hands for magic and simple moves.
  • Flash Step: Subverted; while he's usually very fast on his feet, he doesn't have one.
  • Ki Attacks
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy
  • Oh, Crap: When he runs to Touma's rescue after Seino and Setsuna are ambushed by Torou and Keiko, he runs into Hakkou.
  • Rich Idiot with No Day Job: Double Subverted somewhat, since he doesn't really have access to his rich father's estate. He has only his pocket money, but he's rich enough to have stopped school.
  • Ship Tease: Has asked Keiko on a date and she accepted. Though, she did so only to get him to talk about Seino, and a date-peeping Setsuna didn't help to appease the tension.
  • Spam Attack: His Tiger Hunt.
  • Technical Pacifist: He disagrees with the orders Touma has been given to investigate the Operation G staff's enemies, because he'd rather stay out of his enemies' faces. Rightfully so, when he realizes Tae-yeong fooled Team Konryuu and Keiko and Torou are blocking the path to his teammates, leaving him alone to try and save Touma.

Tropes associated with Setsuna:

Tropes associated with Touma:

  • Animal Motifs: Cats, and sometimes the phoenix.
  • Anti-Villain: Moreso than every other one.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Not this much because he admits his weaknesses due to sickness, but he doesn't understate his ability.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Capable of easily reading his opponent's moves. Also, he has a battle suit that analyzed his own movements for Operation G.
  • Badass: To a certain degree. He can only fight short amounts of time, but he can deliver quite the curbstomp in said short time frames.
    • Handicapped Badass: Has an unknown heart sickness that could kill him in one moment of hyperactivity, despite being really potent. It is the cause of his eventual death when he gets stalled by Natsuki.
  • Battle Aura: When he has one, this is a mark of the incoming Heroic RROD.
  • Counter Attack: His Rinshuu - Kimontonkou.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Death by Origin Story: Not him, but his grandfather. The man was the founder of Number Zero, kidnapped people he found interesting for experimenting (making him the reason Natsuki is what she is in the first place), and he also killed anyone who interfered (that includes Tae-yeong and Rigan's father).
  • Disability Superpower: His unknown sickness is related to magic, but augments his heart rate to dangerous levels if he gets serious.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: When he was about to get caught, Niki dropped a ton of sand over him before evacuating Team Ougoku, leaving Team Konryuu to try and take him out of that. Turns out he indirectly saved Touma from more pain by knocking him out.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: His Rinshuu (Circular Heel) has many variations, so it alone makes around half of his movepool. And let's not get started on his Cursed Wings of Fire Ultimate, where he grows wings of fire and flings himself at the enemy while spinning like a drill.
  • Heroic Resolve: Despite being a villain, Touma has the heroic motive of fighting against sickness in the world. His grandfather died of an unidentified sickness Touma has too (that's the public excuse, Hakkou killed him while he had been left almost dead by Natsuki), strengthening his will to fight it. He never asks for drugs despite his would-be-constant need for those.
  • Hidden Depths: Operation G worker, backstage curbstomper, Jerkass... with a heart of gold, and student in medicinal science fighting against sickness, and trying to complete Operation G to make a cure for all the sick people of the world.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: His attitude towards his "bad" business in the Operation G. He planned to surrender himself to the police and be jailed, once he was healed; but he died before.
  • Ill Boy
  • Jerkass: To anyone that bothers him. It's justified since he's really high on edge and on the verge of death, working his ass off to save his life.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover
  • Legacy Character: Of sorts. He took the place of his grandpa in the Operation G staff after the latter died (officially) by the same heart sickness Touma contracted. His replacing his grandfather is the reason Natsuki despises him so much, and eventually fights him until his agony.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: If he's serious, he's solid enough to receive little injury even from being punched out through a window of the second floor of a building. Though, this doesn't cover the ensuing Heroic RROD.
  • Not So Invincible After All: Despite being a fighter potent enough to wipe the floor with Natsuki (at the beginning), the outcome of the fight turns around once she endures the beatdown and sickness catches up to him.
  • Parental Abandonment: He has been raised by his grandfather, and is known to live alone now that the old man died.
    Team Jundou 
Supervised by: Natsuki Junrin
Captain: Kiyoshi Junrin
Other members: Aoshi Kokuu, Haruka Chinai

Tropes associated with the team:

  • Knight Templar: So much. They look like heroes in comparison to Team Kokujin. Even when they pit themselves against Natsuki, Kiyoshi's purpose in doing so is to call her out on her messing with the tournament because he wanted to win it fair (and he had quite the chance of succeeding given he was in the finals against Fuushi).
  • Anti Villain Protagonist: In fact, the only thing that doesn't make them outright heroes is that they work for the bad guys, and also Natsuki.
    • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: They want Operation G to complete, and for that they need to protect their coach Natsuki, but they have a clear grudge against her for experimenting in her own tournament.

Tropes associated with Haruka:

Tropes associated with Natsuki:

    Team Magou 
Supervised by: Ginshi Kesshaku
Captain: Kintou Teisou
Other members: Tsuyoshi Seichi, Satome Rokuendo

Tropes associated with the team:

Tropes associated with Kintou:

Tropes associated with Tsuyoshi:

Tropes associated with Satome:

Tropes associated with Ginshi:

  • Absurdly Youthful Adoptive Mother: She's 39, and even though she took in Tsuyoshi like an adoptive son, she looks nowhere near her age.
  • Action Girl: Plus, she's outright huge compared to even most men. She's the only woman in the setting whose weight almost reaches 250 pounds.
  • Affably Evil: She's usually civil and polite. Unless you're being a thorn in her side, that is: she's rather fond of Disproportionate Retribution and Cool and Unusual Punishment.
  • Arms Dealer: And she knows what she does enough to get approached by Ringoto.
  • Artificial Limbs
  • Audible Sharpness: When using magic to make slashing Hard Light.
  • Badass Bookworm: She spends some of her free time reading.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Dresses like her wealth allows for, and very strong.
  • Big Fancy House: How about aircraft as a home? Yes, the Silverwing Tour is her organizing a tournament in her home.
  • Blondes are Evil
  • Blood Knight: She likes making use of her Power Copying.
  • Blow You Away
  • Bring It
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Somewhat literally, as she usually lives airborne, but she definitely is eccentric.
  • Cool Ship: Her tournament is organized in a giant airship.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She has her moments.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: She isn't happy to hear about the perspective of Miki grabbing more power than she already has, and even less about what happened to Satome. Her anger gives her a second wind and she gets back at Miki, dying in the fight but denying Miki a way out of her crashing airship, saving Satome in the process.
  • Fingerless Gloves
  • For the Lulz: Her reasons. Though she knows Operation G is about enhancements, so she thinks about replacing her right arm prosthesis.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: She has a pretty ugly scar under her chest. She takes care of hiding it.
  • Happily Adopted: She has been adopted by Tatsuya when she was 7, and their relation went south only when Tatsuya wanted real progeny.
    • Same applies to Tsuyoshi as her somewhat-adopted son, since she takes him in when he needs.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She usually fights when it's about killing off or seriously dissuading someone, so it can feel weird to know that outside a fight (or business) she's actually Affably Evil and could help people, as Team Magou can attest.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: Is able to fire big energy balls. Titan Drill isn't named so for nothing.
  • Kung-Fu Clairvoyance: Has high sensory ability she acquired at training.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Leans toward Glass Cannon, usually. But in comparison to the other girls, she is definitely this as she has the build of a tall man.
  • Narcissist
  • Omniglot: Speaks proficiently at least four languages (English, German, Chinese and Japanese).
  • Playing with Fire: Her Tactical Lance. But its upgrade Limit Break, Titan Drill actually isn't one.
  • Poisoned Weapons: She copied a magic skill of poisoning from Niki who himself learned it. Comes in handy to paralyse Miki and keep her in place for the airship crash to kill her.
  • Power Copying: Holds some gift that allows her to do this. Known copy victims are Niki (poisoned hands), Kintou (slashing Hard Light), and Tatsuya (lightning).
  • Raised By A Dude: She was raised by Tatsuya alone.
  • Red Baron: Nicknamed "Silvertongue", when alluding to her business practices, and her affinity for silver.
  • Slouch of Villainy
  • Sore Loser: Though, she doesn't throw a temper tantrum upon losing. Which means she loses by a wide margin to Niki in these regards.
    • Except when Miki beats her. She eventually crashes her airship just to kill her.
  • Spirited Competitor: She is skirting the line with Blood Knight.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She's the woman with the largest frame, and that's saying something (see Miki).

Operation G Staff (except the four executives since they are also the teams' supervisors)

    Ringoto Teisou 
He's the man responsible for the events. He's a zealous half-Japanese Christian Mad Scientist. He got expelled from the Church because of his warped morals. Since he feels like the entire world is lacking anything moral, he plans God's descent onto this world, by creating a powerful emissary nobody will ever be able to contradict. That is Operation G in a nutshell.

Tropes associated with Ringoto:

  • Affably Evil: Ruthless and zelous, but polite and well-intentioned.
  • Badass Bookworm
  • Badass Preacher: So much that he's willing to create God since there isn't one.
  • Baddie Flattery: He never underestimates anybody, and cites their good points as reasons for him to be serious, even though the praise is not hypocritical at all.
  • Blow You Away
  • Flash Step
  • Gratuitous English
  • Kick the Dog: Oh so majorly. Once Operation G is over, he unceremoniously leaves everyone but Mashin out in the blue without the slightest care. When Seino and Akira call him out on not even paying them for their trouble, he kills them. When he meets Torou face-to-face, he kills him. When Kintou and Setsuna call him out on that, he kills them too. Then, when Eiko refuses to keep fighting (because she fell for Shakurou and broke out of her brainwashed state), he throws her into the Stream.
  • Protagonist-Centered Morality: He considers himself a hero and his morals don't take others into account.
  • Razor Wind
  • Spam Attack
  • Villainous Breakdown: Once Eiko starts to disobey him and refuses to fight Team Kokujin who in turn refuses to fight her.
  • You Have Failed Me: He kills Kintou, Torou and Setsuna off for this. He also kills Eiko this way when she starts to break out of her brainwashed persona and starts crying because she didn't want to kill people after she racked up an impressive kill count.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Once Operation G is over, he unceremoniously fires the four executives. When Seino and Akira call him out for this, he kills them.
    SPOILER! 

Mashin Kisei

An old half-Japanese half-French scientist involved with dubious affairs regarding drugs and doping, he got chastised and expelled by the martial arts competitive field. He formed a group of scientists as crazy as he is, keeping his experiments off of the eyes of those who despised him for that. He plans his vengeance in secret, aiming to take back his place and write any taboo off of the fighting field so he can take his place back. Also, he secretly planned for over 40 years to become God, sewing seeds of corruption by taking away parts of his soul to corrupt other people, to take the parts back when they'll have grown with the persons he sowed those into and become a God. This makes him responsible for one supposed sickness.

Tropes associated with Mashin:

  • A God Am I: His reason to participate in the project was so he could say this. He actually becomes a Physical God to a degree, but not enough to stop everyone.
  • Clipped Wing Angel: Once his body is destroyed, he possesses Satome. His Satome-possessing form is much less powerful than his previous Physical God form, and even though it does beat several people to the dust, it cannot strike any killing blow. It just takes Kiyoshi to erase him.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: He ascends to almost God levels, is the only one to use his Ultimate in canon, and that attack kills the entire Team Mugen in one shot. Yet no more than nine persons were necessary to not only kill him, but erase him from existence altogether.
  • Eviler than Thou: Pulls this on Ringoto, revealing he was "destined" to become the God Ringoto longed for, only doing so required him to reclaim the portions of his magic in several people's blood by having them sacrifice themselves for him. Turns out Ringoto was one of the victims.
  • Immortality: His objective. He acquired Type 1, but got his body destroyed. His soul managed to possess Satome, who in fact held him back for him to be killed off.
  • Kill 'em All: His intention towards everybody. He gets by far the highest kill count, with no less than 11 alone, and, if we count his possession of Satome, 12.
  • Lack of Empathy: He even chastises Touma on being "bad at even recruitment". Note that Touma is sick and close to death should his condition get worse. And he's the one doing the least.
    • Jerkass Has a Point: Touma was utterly fooled when he tried recruiting Chouji, since he didn't know that Niki was impersonating Chouji. While, Niki being his mentor, he should've known.
  • Man in White
  • Pragmatic Villainy: To some degree, since he only acts for his own advantage.
  • Psychic-Assisted Suicide: Tries it on 8 persons simultaneously. It works on four of them, and he does manage to get at the four others anyway.
  • Suicide Attack: Kiyoshi pulls this on a Mashin-possessed Satome, plunging both into the Stream and killing the three for good.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: He'd find something to Trash Talk every single of his co-workers about.
  • The Unfettered: I have referred to Mashin several times as "the ultimate egoist" of the fiction. It all ultimately boils down to whether things help him or not.
  • Villain Ball: He chooses the wrong moment to kill Ringoto note , and doesn't even try Soul Eater on Team Mugen to take the remains of their power once he kills them.
  • Younger than They Look: Abused aesthetic surgery to look young at age 66.
  • Your Soul Is Mine: He steals the souls of no less than eight persons, four by Psychic-Assisted Suicide, four by Soul Eater on the four the former method didn't work on. This kills all of them off permanently.

Operation G Creations:

    SPOILER! 

Houka-2

A clone of Houka that Mashin whips out to ensure his escape along with Ringoto. She doesn't reason much, and attacks everyone on sight, especially Houka.

Tropes associated with Houka-2:

  • Ambiguously Brown: Which also makes her a...
  • Ax-Crazy
  • Berserk Button: Her profile says it: "Dislikes: Houka".
    • Several attack names of hers tell even more: Oni Danzai (Demon, Guilty!), Houkabarai (Houka-exorcising), and Houka no Shittsuitou (Houka's Descending Cry) engrave her dislike of Houka in stone, since it's like her attacks were designed to kill Houka. Houka eventually dies by Houkabarai.
  • Blood Knight
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: She is born brainwashed, and was so during her first fight. Then, when she was dumped to her own devices, not knowing what to do, Brainwash Residue ensued. Even though she made a friend of Eiko, she got shooed off by Ringoto, and Mashin didn't care the slightest bit. She breaks down, and her berserk rage towards Houka got worse as it was her only remaining defining characteristic. They end up killing each other.
  • Divergent Character Evolution: From the start. Mashin gave her genetic material belonging to Fuushi and Karyu on top of Houka's.
  • Evil Knockoff
  • Expendable Clone: She's treated as such by Mashin, her creator, and Ringoto doesn't even spare a thought — he even refuses her to talk to the only person who could understand her: Eiko. She never lives it down even though she dies furthering their goals, though at that point she doesn't care.
  • Goroawase Number: Her attack codes. Most mean nothing or are pronounced completely wrong, or result in Gratuitous English.
  • Knight of Cerebus: She first appears to stall for Ringoto's escape. This means Operation G is a success, and since Mashin gets out unspotted, Team Magou's machinations were for naught. She's also the first to talk about killing someone, and even though she's not the first to succeed and only gets a Mutual Kill, her arrival shifted the tone to dark.
  • Never Say "Die": Of course, she's the one to break the trope in half. Even referenced in her Type 504 - Mureishi / Hitokiri no Honoo (Spiritless Death / Killing Flame) attack.
  • Nietzsche Wannabe: After she gets rejected by Mashin, she just wants to destroy the world. Her plan after killing Houka was to destroy the Stream, in hopes of blowing up the whole world with it.
  • Playing with Fire: Same as normal Houka.
  • Powers as Programs: Even though she's not a robot, her attacks have a codified name. Example: 
    • Memetic Mutation: The code number for Houkabarai and Anti-Houka Rising is OVER 9000!
    • Readings Are Off the Scale: Her unique moves' numbers are in the single digites, not counting decimals. Her special moves' numbers are usually in the triple-digits, but then her Limit Break attacks are in the five-digit scale (82879 for Anti-Houka Rising and 23564 for Houkabarai).
      • Spoofed with her Ultimate: Type 007 - Marumaruna / Houka no Shittsuitou, where she references James Bond and her desire to burn everything to nothingness, but the number isn't higher than the other attacks.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Shadow Archetype: Evidence is evidence.

Eiko

The supposed "God" whose existence means the success of Operation G. Part-magical entity, part-human and part-machine, detaining battle data recorded by Touma, ability to create and use various self-enhancement drugs composed by Natsuki, a nigh-perfect magical energy flow based on Niki's theory, and ability to use and make all kinds of weapons Ginshi recorded in her database make her the "perfect being" Ringoto longed for.
Her mentality, though, isn't quite what he expected. She is not only mellow, but quiet and human-loving. Ringoto then remedies to this by forcibly controlling her.

Tropes associated with Eiko:

  • Artificial Human: Though she looks much like a Robot Girl.
  • Blue Oni: To Houka-2's Red.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Her second appearance. At her first, she was just a playful girl walking at Ringoto's side like a child, and once she snapped out, she started crying, refusing to fight, and calling out Ringoto for making her kill people.
  • BFS: Drops one made of solid dark magic, in one of her Super moves, Extinction Sword.
  • Mass "Oh, Crap!": She kills off Hakkou and Tatsuya in less than ten minutes. She then easily slays Tae-yeong. Cue this very justified reaction as even the full-of-One-Winged Angel Team Mugen gets curbstomped.
  • Meaningful Name: It means "shadow child", referencing how she is just a doll obeying Ringoto and never getting the opportunity to express herself in the spotlight.
  • Storm of Blades: When she isn't dropping BFS's.
