I am a student in informatics. Aged 23. I like fighting games
. I love creating original characters, though I am prone to expy-ing
before I get to use (massive) Divergent Character Evolution
. I'm sometimes a real motor-brain
when it comes to useless things like creating move lists for Original characters in roleplays
. Also fond of abridged series
but I hate it
open/close all folders

- Advance Wars: Played the four games.
- Final Fantasy IX: The previous ones never caught my eyes, and the later ones are just not quite as good in my opinion.
- BlazBlue: Fan who doesn't even own any of the games. It's a bit sad since I loved the few experiences I had playing CS.

Tropes that people think apply to me (to whoever didn't understand, if you want to Trash Talk me (or if you do not) write your shit here):
- I put that note before because reading through all the character sheets to find that would be a bit long.
- Have fun reading that page.

An old fiction I turned into a Fighting Game
It happens in feudal Japan, soon after an anti-bloodline revolution led by the Jiyubudoka
, and the Majin cataclysm
. As Japan is on its way to become Hell on Earth
, demons are close to invading Kyoto, prompting the Jiyubudoka to organize a tournament, to scout for people able to drive them off... or is it not their goal at all?
Tropes associated with Burning Rhapsody:
- Comeback Mechanic: Rage Install. Kyoku uses his canon-wise.
- One-Hit Kill: It enables the Scorching Attack, which is that.
- Downer Ending: The arcade endings involve Bolivian Army Ending or something akin to death, resulting in this. So far...
- Playing with Fire: Lots of things in this project have fire motifs. There is the Burn, Backfire,Searing Reverse, Flare Shield, and Defense Blaze. Only the Rage Install is not named after a fire motif.
- The Power of Hate: Central to the series. The Super Gauge is called "Hatred Gauge", the Comeback Mechanic is triggered by filling a Rage Gauge (and is named Rage Install). Plus, lots of characters hate each other, and plotlines of at least half the characters (Yoi, Kyoku, Rin, Yun, Itami, Junichi, Saki and Nii) involve killing the object of said hatred.
- Public Domain Artifact: Yasuke wields Kusanagi no Tsurugi as his weapon.
- SNK Boss: Frenzied Characters. They usually are final opponents. Their shot effects affect all attacks.
"Demon... Thou shalt perish."
- Antiquated Linguistics: Served to Junichi as the above quote.
- Badass Family: His was, being a wind-empowered bloodline... Or so he thought.
- Black Sheep: It's his job to kill those in his family.
- Blow You Away: His elemental affinity is wind. His Shot Type uses wind to move his enemies around.
- Blue and Orange Morality: In Junichi's Arcade, he points out that he decimated the Kinma because Gold Demons are still demons, and he hunts demons. Note that Junichi called his gang Kinma to steal money from his greedy rivals.
- Child Prodigy
- Demon Hunting: What he does for a living.
- The Dreaded: His mother tried to make Yoi fear Saki, saying that she would avenge her death and take Yoi's life. Needless to say, he killed her unflichingly, and years later, when he actually meets Saki, he justifiably isn't impressed.
- Family Unfriendly Death: Subverted in his kills, for which the screen blacks out and the victim isn't seen.
- Final Boss: He is, rather unsurprisingly, this to Kyoku, Junichi and Saki. He is also Nii's final opponent, but this was expectable as the Hero is a staple final opponent for the Big Bad of a game.
- Hero with an F in Good: He is the Demon Slaying hero, who can save Kyoto from the Majins! He's also a stoic assassin with absolutely no idea of good and almost no attachment to anything or anyone.
- Ineffectual Loner: Averted, Yoi is one of the most potent characters story-wise despite working alone (even if sometimes he comes to Rin's rescue).
- I Work Alone: Even after joining the Yosseidan, he continued his travelling and never set foot in Edo afterwards. Knowing all too well that he isn't liked by his "peers", he quits the group so Rin can't be called out on keeping him in.
- It Runs in the Family: He views himself as normal, alluding that all of his family was like him.
- Knight Templar: Sticks to his code of honor, namely the code of his family, not knowing it is corrupted.
- Light Is Not Good: Wears all white and uses light sometimes. Evil as a demon hunter can be.
- Meaningful Name: If I take care to note it, it's because his case is a delicious Double Subversion. Yoi means "good intention", but he's present to kill both his half-sisters. Though, his principles also impose him to fight the demons around to save the people, and he truly thinks he's right.
- Powered by a Forsaken Child: Subverted. He tried to infuse his actual sister's lifeforce into his sword when he impaled her with it, but since her elemental affinity was water and not wind, it wound up rusting his sword instead, weakening it. Despite this hindrance, Yoi keeps using it because it's so bloodstained that it reminds him of his mission every single second he holds it.
- Power of the Void: This is the ultimate extension of his power. His Scorching Attack, Seirinkyokaisho, basically disintegrates his enemies with this.
- Razor Wind: His Senpuken.
- Self-Made Orphan: He killed both his parents himself at age 13.
- Sinister Minister: Was this, when his clan was still alive.
- The Stoic
- Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With Rin, even though he's the only one clenching the teeth. Not because of Rin herself, but because of the rest of the Yosseidan. He leaves anyway, because he's unable to act within the group dynamics.
"Sounds like a lie. Fine, I'll beat more precise answers out of you."
. Kyoku is a professional fighter turned demon hunter, who grew bored of even this and gave himself handicaps, such as breaking his own leg before a fight. Though, during a travel in Hokkaido, he lost a fight and was ready to die; but Yoi killed the thing from behind
before it could deal the finishing blow. Kyoku retired in shame, waiting to restore himself before taking his revenge with full strength.
"It's not a matter of dignity. It's a matter of dealing with evil."
An Edo-born prodigy, her intellect led to her being unemotional, and her animosity for her family (one who wanted to rise as a grand bloodline) made her throw her life aside to learn karate outside. She founded the Yosseidan, a demon-hunting group, after graduating from her karate school, her magic school and normal school. She then disappeared in her own organization's shadow to avoid fighting Itami when she returned. Though, since she cannot live like that forever, she takes Itami's challenge.
- Aloof Ally: Yoi. He ends up leaving her anyway.
- Final Boss: She and Itami are this to each other.
- Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Sure has the looks for it, but in truth she's just one more symbol of human egoism in the series.
- It's Personal: Sort of. Itami and her have been rivals for a long while, but Rin is trying to push her mentality behind killing Itami towards her responsabilities as a demon hunter rather than killing her for personal purposes.
- Just Business: The mask for her reasons to be here.
- Knight Templar: Of sorts. Like Yoi, she would kill all sorts of demons, even figurative. One of her inner demons is the existence of her twin sister Itami.
- Making a Splash: Her main element is water.
- Precision F-Strike: Against Itami, she mutters: "Bitch." before the fight.
- Willfully Weak: In her arcade, when fighting Yoi, he asks her to cease holding back, because he knew she was this.
"I don't like to be followed, especially this blatantly."
A child born from a bloodline that decimated itself in a civil war caused by Jiyubudoka pressure. He became an errant thief, and stole from the biggest riches around. With the money he stole, he funded the building of an orphanage where he housed Saki, whom he found on a road. Famed for his ability as a thief, plans spring to stop him, and his increasing addiction to stealing proves to be more and more problematic over time as his plunderings become more and more difficult to hide.
"The "Greater Good" and all that? It's never been my thing."
Rin's twin sister, with a fire affinity
. She's also the Red Oni
to her sister's blue, and she's been calling out the clan on everything she could since she was conscious. She was constantly punished for her sharp-minded snarks and insults, and even was kicked out of the house at age 13 when the situation couldn't get worse. She then got into dirty work in assassinating for the Yakuza
, and later assassinated her own patron to take command and grab some easy life. She challenged Rin publicly several times and had her henchmen look all over Edo for her. After several failures, Rin takes the bait. Since it's in Kyoto, Itami leaves her henchmen be, instead collaborating with Kyoku Hajiro.
"I am merely... a curious one."
A rich heir to a bunch of activities in Sapporo, he is one of the richest persons in all Hokkaido. He has successful business even down to Edo. He founded the Kinma to attack fund conveys from his rivals and acquire even more money, but they got razed while he was away. Junichi takes upon himself to take revenge.
"There's no stopping you? [...] Then I will stop at nothing!"
Rin and Itami's older sister, she works to become an attorney of sorts. Being usually peaceful, she became concerned when Rin's aloofness and Itami's hostility menaced to consume the family, and tried to put them apart. She agreed to kick Itami out, unaware that this caused her to plot the clan's demise. When her big sister Kazune died, she took upon herself to fill the vacuum, even though she's having difficulty hanging in. She is in charge of the contacts of the clan, and this resulted in her meeting Junichi, and becoming friends with him. When she hears Rin and Itami are meeting in Kyoto, she goes there to prevent bloodshed.
"I am Mother's revenge!"
Yoi's half-sister, they share the same mother. Unlike Yoi, who doesn't pay any regard to her memory, Saki regards her mother extremely highly, and wants revenge on Yoi for having killed her. Her father having committed suicide one year later, she's an orphan, and therefore she lived in orphanages. When she travelled to Kyoto, she became the poster girl for Yun's orphanage, where she now lives.
- Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: In her Arcade, she lets her holy magic progressively possess her.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: In Itami's arcade, she starts a fight with little provocation. She is the one to start the fight against the worst example of Hair-Trigger Temper in the cast. Also, she gets excited fast against Yun and Yoi, though this last one isn't quite a case of Hair-Trigger Temper since It's Personal.
- Holier Than Thou: Serves this to almost everybody, Yun and Yoi.
- Invisibility Cloak: Used a seal to hide herself from sight in Asuka's Arcade, but failed to remain unseen.
- It Gets Easier: With sealing off instead of outright killing, but it's almost the same. She takes a while to succeed in sealing Kyoku, but preparing the seal for Nii takes less time so, and when she faces Yoi right after, she manages to appose the seal on the entire stage, and before the fight even begins.
- Joke Character: Story-wise, she's treated as such, even though she isn't the weakest in the tournament. She doesn't make any apparition in any arcade past stage 4.
- Revenge Before Reason: She's getting herself in range fo Majins to kill Yoi.
- Years Too Early To Slay Demons: Itami tells her this in her arcade. When Saki points out Itami is only one year older than her, Itami explains that life has taught her to kill stuff.
"Time for you to learn to respect people without lineage!"
A top enforcer of the Jiyubudoka Militia, self-nicknamed "The One Who Defeats Blood" for his ability to defeat people with blood-inherited powers. Since he's from Fukuoka, he enrolled in the Jiyubudoka when their activity was there, at age 6. He's trained ever since, with awesome results
. He does his best to bring down "those arrogant aristocratic dimwits", even though he's not actually malicious, just extremely zealous about his "duty as a human being".
- Badass Normal: Much less gifts in magic than others, and no blood-inherited power. Can beat a good part of the cast fair and square. He has already stopped Yosseidan investigation teams - a dozen men trained in magic - all by himself.
- Blood Knight: Truly loves a good fight. In his arcade, he tells Junichi to come back after four or five years for another bout.
- Code Name: His family name, Hakamuro, has been invented by the Jiyubudoka.
- The Dragon: To Nii, at least for the truly-involved characters. He's actually The Brute.
- For Great Justice: Truly believes he's doing this by virtue of being with the Jiyubudoka, though this tends to fade in his arcade.
"Unlike so many of you [demon slayers] and those [Jiyubudoka] out there, I truly fight for justice."
- Japanese Honorifics: His using of -san for Nii leads Yoi to believe that Nii is Noriaki's brother until Nii puts his foot down.
- Noble Demon: Big time. By affirming his presence as a Jiyubudoka and brutally beating several bloodliners to say Lamarck Was NOT Right, he earned himself intense hate from several of the old clans, Yun first. He knows that he's working with some bad guys, but he doesn't really care as long as he gets to tell his motto.
- Red Baron: Introduces himself as "The One Who Defeats Blood". Justified in that he's one man able to beat people with blood-inherited powers, but it doesn't really sound cool.
- Skill Gate Character: Story-wise. He's working as a guard as well as fighting in the tournament, sending people investigating background packing... most of them.
- Spirited Competitor
- Years Too Early: Delivered by Yoi, when Noriaki stands up to him.
"You're thinking way ahead of yourself, you demon-worshipping idiot."
"Everything's at its place."
Chief of the Jiyubudoka Militia, Nii has been in the Jiyubudoka since his younger age. Only he knows of his past, but his malicious zeal in destroying the bloodlines knows almost no bounds. In fact, his presence here is due to the fact that a tournament under Majin menace could draw attention from people from disappeared bloodlines
. He intends to Kill 'em All
. He's the Big Bad
- The Chessmaster: Plays this role. He manipulated demon hunters away from his zone of action by organizing the tournament in Kyoto, he baited Yun in too by promising a huge money reward as well, and getting everyone scared of Majins will take everyone's attention out of his personal plans.
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: In Noriaki's Arcade, he takes the head of the Jiyubudoka. How? Trapping Noriaki and the current leader in a formal meeting, and calling his men to kill Noriaki while he's killing the leader by impaling him via a spear through the throne.
- Code Name: His real name is unknown.
- The Dragon: He's this to the Jiyubudoka leader who organized the tournament.
- Dragon with an Agenda: It's obvious that his motives are his only. Noriaki's arcade ending tells it all too well.
- Final Boss: To Yoi, Yun and Asuka so far.
- Manipulative Bastard: Though the idea behind him is that of a Magnificent Bastard, it's much too early for him to get coined as one.
Touhou Musouhen ~ Unprecedented Catastrophe:
My Touhou Self-Insert Fic
, where I get spirited away to Gensokyo during a "shrine tour" of Japan. Then, things are pretty screwed up
Tropes that apply to the fic:
Characters new to the fic:
Since there are a bunch of them, they are divided in several parts.
Tropes associated to "me":
- And I Must Scream: Undergoing spiriting away while conscious is described to be a very bad experience. Luckily there's a Time Skip that flashes forward to the time he lands in Gensokyo. It's partly covered in chapter 8's first flashback which explains his trail of thoughts. That wasn't pretty.
- Ass Pull: Invents new spells (and derivations thereof) almost everytime mid-action, taking everyone by surprise. One thought text is, unsurprisingly:
- Badass Longcoat: Tries to play on this by wrapping vests around his waist, but in narration it's said to be a dubious taste.
- Butt Monkey: If he's considered a Gappy Stu, he's this to the ensemble.
First, all Gappies get gapped in by Yukari. While it is true in his case, he had thrown himself into the Hakurei Border first and got his existence torn in several pieces before getting picked up and resting in non-piece in a gap for a Time Skip of unknown length.
Then, his surviving body can't take easily the training Reimu, Marisa and Sanae give due to literal holes causing several hemorragies, resulting in (while Gappies get all-might) learning to barely float down slower.
And when he finally leaves, he meets very few youkai (barely Suika and then Cirno cameoing) before finding his destination - the Scarlet Devil Mansion. He doesn't defeat Meiling (most Gappies would have), but gets a ticket in by getting blood sucked from him by Remilia. And for the overkill value, he gets burned by Flandre's danmaku and bleeds to death in Voile as the end of his life.
- Anti-Gappy-Stu? After a rethinking time, he still survived much more than should be possible for a sickly human. Two weeks of rather intense or not (according to chapter 8's first flashback) training, a skirmish with Cirno (though she played into his hands by saying she would kill him in one hit), and then getting bitten by Remilia and scorched by Flandre's danmaku. And he died by the ensuing excessive bleeding, not by the deadly danmaku that preceded it.
- Brutal Honesty: When not abusing the Sarcasm Mode.
- Calling Your Attacks: "Fuck It!" is up to now the only one.
- Combat Pragmatist: Has disrespected the Spell Card Rules several times (mostly unknowingly), hoping his weakness and his being rather unknown will result in absence of punishment.
- Crazy Sane: The craziness is more or less honest, depending on the moment. Getting in Gensokyo definitely has taken a toll on his sanity, given what he went through.
- Drunk with Power: Even with extremely low power, he still has even more screws loose than before and goes outright outlandish.
- Deadpan Snarker / Stepford Snarker: Your Mileage May Vary
- Death Is Cheap: But it comes fast and rather painfully.
- Exact Words: In Chapter 8's second flashback sequence, Reimu owns him verbally on this, when he said he'd take every single considerable risk to fly. Except she refused because she would not take those risks and therefore not train him until she found a solution for his existence-slipping.
- Fire, Ice, Lightning: The first two are mainly visual motifs, with very low actual usage of such powers. His innate power is much more useful in using the third power, by manipulating electrical tension.
- First-Person Smartass: First chapter only. Afterwards, the narration got switched to third person due to my incompetence with first person. He's still sarcastic as all hell.
- Flip Flop of God: Is he truly me or not? Even I can't seem to know correctly what I want.
- Genre Savvy: Given that he's a self-insert and I had read the Universe Compendium before the official fiction start (July 22nd, 2011), he knows much more than he shows.
- Good Is Not Nice: Zig Zagged. Both the "good" and "not nice" parts are ambiguous.
- Gratuitous Japanese: It's more of a tendency to spout fake Japanese which ends up not being understood.
- Though, the Spell Cards are partly named in Japanese in-narration.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: Somewhat: even with the ability to fire danmaku, he prefers to form a lightning bolt as a sword for several attacks.
- She's Mine: When he gets confronted by Nouwa at the Tower, after a first exchange of blows that turns to Nouwa's advantage, he growned this to urge Komachi and Youmu to go inside.
- I'm Having Soul Pains: Result of trying to experience a bit of craziness in order to use danmaku? Hitting a literal wall in his mind.
- Before that, getting spirited away resulted in extreme amounts of this. Pain lasted until death. Given that he had several literal holes in his body according to chapter 8, it's only normal.
- Ineffectual Loner: Trying to go alone in Gensokyo isn't a good idea. And even though no wild youkai came for free lunch, every single fight opportunity is an occasion to get the lower end of the stick in a Curb-Stomp Battle.
- Izuna Drop: Landed one on Youmu as part of his last training.
- Joke Character: During the early parts of the story. Pre-death, all he can do is pick up his Spell Card Deck and hope for the best. Post-death, despite getting some power, is not much better.
- Kamehame Hadoken: Fired twice a big electric laser beam. Trust my Word Of God for it, it's based off Justice's Gamma Ray.
- Leeroy Jenkins: In chapter 8's flashback, he outright mentioned to himself having had an approach akin to Leeroy in order to fly, because he needed to ignore all sorts of knowledge to do so.
- Limit Break: Reibaku is so far his single Spell Card.
- But a literal one was breaking Reibaku's defensive condition in using it in a derivate method. This was somewhat lampshaded by the declaration, even though, by Spell Card Rules, it's outright cheating.
"Akuten Nishiki - Reibaku" *
- Madness Mantra / Survival Mantra: Two of them, both covered in chapter 8's flashbacks. While both are definitely Madness Mantras, he did both in order to maintain his existence.
"Why would gods you pray for inflict such a treatment to a new prayer? Why? Why?"
- The second instance of it was, shortly after arriving in Gensokyo, when the training begins. When he finally elevates himself mid-air, he momentarily feels his unstable existence slipping into oblivion again and starts shouting like crazy:
"Not again! Not again! Not again!!!"
- Not Even Bothering with an Excuse: To not say goodbye to Marisa and Sanae, when time comes to leave the Hakurei Shrine. He says goodbye to Reimu and that's it.
- Our Ghosts Are Different: Now we have a Deadpan Snarker Psycho Electro ghost who wears three vests, two around the waist.
- Precision F-Strike: "Fuck it!" A Shout Out to Guilty Gear, namely Order Sol's "Rock it!". Noticeable in that it's said in straight English compared to the fic being written in French, and that like its inspiration, it's the name of an attack. First used in a (failed) attempt at a Talk to the Fist.
- Reluctant Psycho: At least not really lucid.
- Roses are Red, Violets are Blue: Tried to be a Warrior Poet and mused to himself (before going to maul Chiyuri) this poem:
"Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
I am already dead,
and so are you."
- Sarcasm Mode: On-and-off.
- Shock and Awe: Misuse of the power of using tension first manifested by sparks surrounding the body. Even while running under high tension, he looks like a shooting electric arrow.
- Shout Out:
- See Precision F-Strike.
- In a bonus chapter, I mobilize most characters of Gensokyo for a harmless card game. The game itself is one to trading card games in general, especially ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' and Magic: The Gathering, which I both played. The title of that bonus chapter? "It's just a card game."
- When asked what if it felt weird to return to the world of the living, his answer is:
- Standard Status Effects: Bad Atmosphery: Reibaku inflicts paralysis, somewhat.
- Stronger With Age: And being here for two weeks means being barely able to trade hits with Cirno.
- Downplayed Trope in that he still traded with her Ice Cube: Great Crusher, her most powerful Spell Card from Touhou Hisoutensoku.
- Zig Zagged: Breaking the Great Crusher by punching it only resulted in more pain, directly and indirectly.
- Take That Me: A sort of. Musou Note n°3 has the self-insert mocking Reimu's joy over Luke's return. Me (as the author) answers "Shut up, me."
- The One Guy: Averted. Despite the rarity of guys, given my friends' fan fics are considered canon in this one, there is actually a handful of guys existing in Gensokyo. Still, that makes 4 guys, and most PC-98 characters returning and a dozen of O Cs coming means that it's 5-on-over-100.
- The Power of Friendship: Very very low opinion on this. Cue Eiki cutting the sentence short.
"And the Power of Friendship is sh-." *whack*
- The Power of Hate: He and Nouwa have real bad blood together.
- This Is Me On Drugs: Rather, how I was on 7/22/2011 on drugs. I've changed a bit since then, especially about my unfriendly disposition.
- Training from Hell: Two weeks with Reimu, Sanae and Marisa. It results in learning to fall slower than normally. Results in unknowingly becoming able to fly when dying and becoming a ghost, obtaining a youkai power in the process.
- Ungrateful Bastard: His running away from the Hakurei Shrine. Reimu got the thanks, but it's quickly revealed that Marisa was the most involved one in his training.
- Wangst: Angsts a deal. He himself notices.
"Optimism? It's been shattered when I came here..."
- Weak, but Skilled: Usually able to think and maintain an excuse for self-control, but too snarky to believe in the existence of his own powers. It means he can't use them to full extent since his own will acts unconsciously against it.
- Unskilled, but Strong: Chapter 6, interlude 6. When focusing only on not thinking and using the power that he has, he can reach Power Levels way above what shown previously. But for that he has to hold back the thinking.
- What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: Could quote the trope! Also, being barely able to fly without utterly concentrating makes him a ground-based fighter, really weak in general.
- You Can't Go Home Again: Has never displayed the flimsiest of hopes for returning, given what he went through.
"The world - no - the whole universe is turning around him, or what! Screw you all!!"
A vengeful spirit that appeared in the Netherworld who knows how. She picks up several fights for no reason and bothers several characters. Her apparition is an incident in and of itself. Also, she's the Author Avatar
, though a bit less so after she came back, for reasons undisclosed.
Tropes associated with Nouwa:
- A Chapter In The Limelight: Chapter four is focused on her.
- Alto Villainess: She looks very mannish, and the voice is outright said to be alto. Given that she's born from a male spirit, it maybe had some influence.
- Battle Aura: Has 2 kinds: Her white phantom-like one, and her red one made of sheer hate.
- Butt Monkey: Might appear as this before her return in Chapter 6: Her first fight (against the Author Avatar) ends up with her taking a miracle Reibaku and seeing my Author Avatar run even though she wiped the floor with him when he tried to run. Then she picks up fights against Remilia (with Marisa) and Reimu, who leaves Shingyoku to take care of her. She lost every single fight in the end. Her first victory comes begin chapter 7, against the Author Avatar.
- Cessation Of Existence: She implies that once she's done killing the Author Avatar, she'll do this, but Chen disagrees.
- Evil vs. Evil: Takes her matches against the Author Avatar as this.
- From Nobody to Nightmare: Chapter 6, interlude 1. She is freed from Shingyoku's seal and Came Back Strong. She has enough power to break Mima's seal (which was mentioned to be the biggest and strongest one) in one shot, and then pull a One-Hit KO on a terrified Shingyoku (Though, it must have helped that Shingyoku was terrified by Mima and not her, leading to its male form taking the attack without even trying to defend himself.
- Hates Everyone Equally: Almost. She hates the Author Avatar more, and Marisa a good chunk less.
- Kill 'em All: She mentions once, when talking with Yukari, that she "already killed them all but him". Who "them" refers to is still a mystery, though.
- Rage Against the Heavens: When she notices people are focusing on Hakugyokurou on suspect about the Author Avatar's presence (just a guess, but she knew it was highly probable), she decides to attack Reimu, while initially she decided not to.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here: Inverted, see Rage Against the Heavens.
She could as well have said: "Screw This, I'm Attacking You! LEEROOOOOOOOY JEEEENKIIINS!"
- Shadow Archetype: She is an ikiryo, a spirit created out of a living human's will. She made it clear that she has been created by the Author Avatar's hate of everything and suicidal desires.
- Shock and Awe: Had it before coming back. She strangely mentioned not having the same powers as before immediately upon returning.
- Miss Swears A Lot: She has extremely rough, mannish speech patterns.
- The Power of Hate: She lives by it, being an ikiryo/raging spirit created out of general frustration. It is easily seeable in her ability to use violence as Pure Energy. And also her Status Buff Seal of Hatred amps it up.
"Whatever Reimu wants... Reimu wants it."
Another guy in Gensokyo, whose insertion in the land of illusion predates the fiction by a couple of years. Also, he ended up with Reimu, making them an Official Couple
in the story.
Tropes associated with Luke:
- Combat Medic: He is highly skilled in medicals as a result to studying in Eientei. If he has the appropriate healing tools, of course; he doesn't use any supernatural healing gift, but ordinary medicine.
- Extra Ore Dinary: Has the power to manipulate iron. And he can be extremely destructive with it as well.
- Leitmotif: Ironheart, though it's not used yet because he still hasn't taken part in serious battle action.
- Made of Iron: He survived nasty injuries, such as being shot three times, and being burned in the back by a white-hot iron marker, resulting in the kanji burnmark he has on his back that marks him as an evil spirit, thing he is not.
- Martial Pacifist: He tries to resolve every conflict the non-violent way (because it would be unfair to count on strength for everything (Reimu's Fantasy Heaven being an instant ticket for victory), but he does take part in battles if he ever meets refusal in his non-violence offers.
- Reckless Pacifist: In his own fiction, Luke tried extreme measures to stop some persons in their maniacal schemes. Including an extremely dangerous technique that razed everything in a one-kilometer-radius sphere.
- The Reliable One: For Reimu's every problem, she can count on him. Whenever she does have problem, the most common one being anger management.
- Sanity Ball: Is the one carrying it, as in "he's the only one keeping his composure in all the events that have been happening".
- Thou Shalt Not Kill: Definitely part of his usual attitude. He only uses his Dangerous Forbidden Technique against people that force him to resort to this.
Gensokyo's second male exposed in the fic. He arrived in Gensokyo before Luke, and is a restaurant manager in the Human Village. He is also (in this story) married to Sakuya Izayoi. His own painful story in Gensokyo is long over.
Tropes associated with Dondeo:
- Blow You Away: The power of manipulating air.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Arrived in Gensokyo with heavy burns and Laser-Guided Amnesia.
- The Quiet One: Keeps his calm and self-control in every situation, even moreso than Luke.
- Really Gets Around: Has many relations in the Scarlet Devil Mansion, the Eientei, and Youkai Mountain.
- Weirdness Magnet: Despite him being the most serious and flat-earth character in the fic, he's this. His relationship with Sakuya lead to Remilia visiting the Human Village more frequently because she always wants to make sure he takes a great deal of care to her favourite maid, and this has not gone unnoticed.
The third man exposed in the fiction, and pretty much the fourth man of Gensokyo. He has not yet appeared in the fiction. I plan on having him make his first appearance in chapter 9.
Mubana Academy dropouts
The characters who rioted in Mubana Academy and managed to escape in Gensokyo.
"I'm just a wandering bird, looking for a home."
A bird youkai, formerly a professor at Mubana Academy. She left on suspicion that it is actually a façade for someone else to kidnap youkai across Gensokyo, and her observations do not foreshadow much better...
The director of Mubana Academy, created by Yumemi between the events of Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream and the fiction (which is approximated to a good 15 years). She is the director of Mubana Academy. She also is under Yumemi's direct orders, and so far appeared only to tell her about six girl dropouts from Mubana Academy.
Tropes associated with Eri:
A nekomata reported to have fled Mubana Academy, presumably only out of curiosity.
Tropes associated with Sae:
Tropes associated with Shumi:
- Fiery Redhead
- Irony: When Luke hit her into the Misty Lake? It was her fault, because her presence vaporized more water around her, thickening the mist and resulting in the collision.
- Playing with Fire
- Elemental Rock-Paper-Scissors: When Luke hits her into the Misty Lake by mistake, she gets out of water a crying mess, barely able to do anything else. She is this weak to water.
A doll of Eri's that came to life as a tsukumogami (doll youkai). Eri is distraught over her reasons to leave the Academy, but it is not told why she left, or if Eri even knows.
Tropes associated with Sayuri:
A vampire who expies
Marisa as her means to success. As she's a vampire, she has left Mubana Academy for darker places.
Tropes associated with Mariko:
A tiger youkai, formerly fourth-year at Mubana Academy. She's only recently ascended to her youkai form (four years ago).
Tropes associated with Fumu:
Another Fighting Game
In a futuristic world, a well-known fighting tournament organizer named Ringoto Teisou is working on a secret project. He is rumored to be in the first stage, collectively called "Operation G"
. It's content and goals are unknown to all but his four head executives. In front of that persistent veil, several parties and private groups side against the project.
Tropes associated with the fic:
- Bishōnen: All over the damn place.
- Blessed with Suck: Three examples running in the series, there are several afflictions 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, Kiyoshi, and 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. Ginshi can also easily feel when said power is activated. This power is also held by Kuuki, Aoshi and Haruka, but only they can trigger it, and they are unaffected by any other trigger.
- The third is a magical gift (or rather, a hidden dark magical energy type) that enhances power at the expense of almost everything else, making everyone affected a Blood Knight. It also make them able to sense other lifeforms with that same gift. 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).
- Expy: Just about every single character. Though, the roles and background change, making for extremely different relationships.
- Divergent Character Evolution: Due to replacing and things, sometimes characters take inspiration from 2 utterly different characters, if not more than that.
- Irony: Kiyoshi is affected by the first two afflictions (see Blessed with Suck) 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.
- Nebulous Evil Organization: To a degree, the Operation G staff.
- Title Drop: Operation G.
- Two Guys and a Girl: The teams.
- Values Dissonance: My brother actually considers the Operation G staff as true heroes. We're talking about those guys who are creating a Person of Mass Destruction in utter secret, and are willing or accepting a new world where everyone is in fear of a newly-created God.
- Villains Act, Heroes React: More exactly, Villain Protagonists Act Hero Antagonists React: The Operation G staff is the acting faction.
- Inverted Trope: In fact, Team Ougoku itself doesn't act, except by protecting Niki from the teams intent on destroying the project.
Captain: Kuuki Kishitsu
Other members: Shadou Koukyu, Honbuki Houka
Tropes associated with the team:
- Mighty Glacier / The Brute: The whole team is composed of some of the heaviest persons, fighting-wise. Koukyu is by a good margin the least power-oriented fighter of the three.
- Villain Protagonist: By virtue of siding with the Operation G, and being supervised by Niki. Otherwise...
- Anti-Villain: ... they are usually nice guys, except for their crippling personal issues.
Tropes associated with Kuuki:
- Blood Knight: He enjoys generally the fighting itself, though he doesn't enjoy the potential harsh consequences.
- Brains and Brawn: With the rest of his team. Even though he's far from weak, it's fairly obvious which side is which.
- Bruiser with a Soft Center: Mostly a Nice Guy, but he can kick ass if need arises.
- Genius Bruiser
- Gentle Giant: In contrast to the rest of the team. Just don't say anything bad regarding Niki or you will Talk to the Fist.
- I Love Nuclear Power: He could say literally the phrase.
- Meteor Move: Goumariki, with him as part of the meteor.
- Multicolored Hair: All the time.
- My Master, Right or Wrong: Niki saved his life from errance and starvation, and for this reason Kuuki is devoted to Niki to his last breath.
- Real Men Wear Pink: Even his hair has a pink hue.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Be it to Koukyu or Houka, he's always the Blue Oni.
- Shock and Awe
- Stuff Blowing Up: His Ultimate, Meteor Piledriver, makes an explosion at impact.
- Use Your Head: More likely to think, but he uses a headbutt as an easy throw.
- White-Haired Pretty Boy: Not a Bishōnen, but he isn't ugly at all.
- Wrestler in All of Us: Uses several wrestling moves. Powerbombs, powerslams and piledrivers are commonplace with this guy.
Tropes associated with Koukyu:
- Acrofatic: Despite being rather heavy, he usually wears clothes that hide his fat. Also, he isn't absurdly fat (93 kg for 1.85 m) and he has power-oriented moves.
- Ambiguously Brown: His second outfit has him with an obscure tan.
- Big Brother Instinct: Sorta, towards Houka.
- Boisterous Bruiser
- Cool Shades: His second outfit, again.
- Fingerless Gloves
- Formerly Fat
- Heavy Sleeper
- Hell-Bent for Leather: His second outfit. He suggests the same fashion to Houka and she runs with it too. Kuuki's comment:
- Hot Blooded
- Jerkass Façade: Has one, really spicy, for those who want to dig into his motives.
- Rapid Fire Fisticuffs
- Rule Of Cool: Runs after it.
- Spin Attack: Rarely indulges into this contrary to what could be. When he does... He does it For Massive Damage!
- Unskilled, but Strong: Has little knowledge of magic, even less than Houka. Therefore, he is unable to maintain wind currents, rather relying on sudden shockwaves.
Tropes associated with Houka:
- Alcohol Induced Idiocy: She drinks a lot and she's definitely not the smartest of the load. She's not The Ditz though.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Essentially nice, but she packs a wallop.
- Her frustration also lead to the start of the story, with her as the bad guy.
- Booze Flamethrower: Subverted. She drinks often and breathes fire, but it's fire magic and she doesn't ignite alcohol.
- Bottle Fairy: She loves drinking, but that makes her performances unreliable at best.
- Confusion Fu
- Creepy Child: Much older than the norm, but looks the part.
- Cute Bruiser
- Drunken Master
- Fire Breathing Diner: One of her trademark moves involve spewing out fire.
- Friend to All Children: She's an orphan, so she has a soft spot for abandoned children.
- Hard Drinking Party Girl: Her Fatal Flaw, aside from wrath. She looks underage, so Kuuki and Koukyu try to avoid giving her too much because of potential controversy.
- Hell-Bent for Leather: Her 2P costume. Thank you Koukyu.
- Kick Them While They Are Down: Her Super move Zanki Taikuuken looks like it since she hammers the ground with both hands. It results in a massive flame spike surging from the impact point.
- Little Miss Badass: Again, not really this little.
- Meaningful Name: Houka's name is a homophone for voluntary arson.
- Mighty Glacier: She cannot move around fast. Sure she can dodge and all, but she's nearly as bad as Kuuki when it comes to strolling across an arena. She is also really powerful not only in physical power, but in magic as well. Her innate brutal force is what compelled Mashin to clone her.
- Playing Drunk: When fighting. Her fighting style is being a Drunken Master. Sometimes she really is drunk, though.
- Rage Quit > Face Heel Turn: Essentially, the beginning of the story. Houka runs away from Akina's group of disciples and is then tricked by Niki into joining Kuuki.
- Saying Sound Effects Out Loud
- Super Strength: So far her only use of magic. She learns to make explosions, and then volcanos.
- Unskilled, but Strong
- Wrestler in All of Us: Under Kuuki's tutoring, she invents the Houka Buster, which is essentially a jumping Rock Bottom, with one arm spin added for good measure.
- Youkai Motifs: Oni. Demonic undertones? Check. Loves sake? Check. Enormous physical strength? Compared to the other girls, check.
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.
- The Rival: Shiro is Kuuki's, Karyu is Koukyu's and Tenko is Houka's.
Tropes associated with Shiro:
Tropes associated with Karyu:
Tropes associated with Tenko:
- Badass 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 a Badass Bookworm, but just fails to understand books, because she has been skipping lessons all her childhood. Her failings are Played for Laughs.
- Cute Bookworm: Same failure as a bookworm, but you can consider her cute.
- Berserk Button: If you ever try to undermine her Smug Super boasting. Yes, even post-Heroic BSOD.
- 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.
- 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, which made her Insufferable Genius attitude worse and worse with the passage of time. She gets given several attitude adjustments that greatly diminished her ego.
Captain: Rikuto Yoshimoto
Other members: Torou Teisou, Keiko Seichi
Tropes associated with the team:
- The Big Guy: Except Rikuto - 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 Rikuto.
- Not So Harmless Hero Antagonist: While Gontorou and Keiko look serious, Rikuto's gests caused Team Ougoku to dismiss them as a real threat. And then, Rikuto pops up backstage and - unhindered by anything - attacks Touma directly. This leads to Touma getting punched out of the building.
Tropes associated with Rikuto:
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.
- 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.
- Flash Step: She aids herself with earth magic. That's pretty much the only magic stuff she can do, actually.
- Hot Blooded
- Martial Arts Headband
- 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.
Captain: Seino Seichi
Other members: Akira Ii, 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. Long story short, 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 Rikuto taking Touma by surprise.
- Badass Longhair
- 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. Or his Tiger Claw.
- 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. Cue Curb-Stomp Battle.
- 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 Claw is basically Rapid Fire Fisticuffs.
- 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 Rikuto pulled a New Face Team on 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:
- Action Girl: Stands out even amongst other girls in that she can take out the guys. She packs enough power to take out Torou!
- Attack Reflector: More like "deflector", but she's able to create ice barriers.
- Boobs of Steel: Justified: she's one of the oldest girls in the cast. Since the younger ones are 16 and she's 20, the difference in breast size and experience is noticeable. She's the strongest girl in the cast, bar the usually older and more experienced background characters.
- Counter Attack: Not really, but her Dream Freeze lets her dodge attacks and Flash Step behind the opponent to attack.
- Date Peepers: Spies on Akira's date with Keiko so he doesn't talk too much.
- Everything's Better with Sparkles
- Fiery Redhead: Averted. She's a redhead, still, but fitting with her powers rather than her hair, she's An Ice Person.
- Flung Clothing: Whenever pitted against Torou or Kintou, as a sign she isn't holding anything back on her brothers. And it's reciprocal, as a family tradition.
- Iron Lady: Despite not actually ruling anyone.
- Human Popsicle: The tip of the iceberg when it comes to her abilities.
- I Have Brothers: Ten of them, and she's been raised in fighting by being pitted against them.
- Ice Queen: Not defrosting anytime soon.
- Jerkass Façade: Compared to girls, she can be unusually rough in her speech. She's been raised with dudes.
- Lady of War
- Perpetual Frowner
- Smug Super: Emphasis on super. She's much more experienced and powerful than most of her opponents, and as smug as befits her power.
- The Stoic
Captain: Fuushi Zanjima
Other members: Shakurou Kokuu, Izumi Umigiri
Tropes associated with the team:
Tropes associated with Fuushi:
Tropes associated with Shakurou:
- Anti-Hero: Exact same deal as Fuushi. There's a reason they get along.
- Bad Powers, Good People: Uses dark and fire magic for Fire and Brimstone Hell effect. Good Is Not Nice, but he's good nonetheless.
- Bring My Red Jacket: Wears a red jacket pretty much all the time. Cue his younger brother Aoshi's Dangerous Sixteenth Birthday. It was not dangerous for Aoshi, but for him because Aoshi impaled his arm with an ice shard.
- Can't Go Back To Normal: Even after dealing with Aoshi, he can't adapt to a normal lifestyle or take school again. He doesn't know what to do with his screwed life by then.
- Dark Is Not Evil, but Good Is Not Nice, and Dark Is Edgy.
- Fragile Speedster: To a degree.
- Ground Pound: Kick-based version in his Soul-eater Axe.
- Kick Them While They Are Down
- Perpetual Frowner
- Playing with Fire: Double Subverted. He frequently uses flame-like dark magic, but that isn't fire. He still has fire magic to speak of, but he uses it so rarely that it's generally a surprise.
- Red Oni: To both his brothers' blue.
- Sir Swears-a-Lot: Not that much, but bringing up Aoshi is enough.
- Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With Shiro, they keep Team Kokujin and Team Mugen synchronized to act against the Operation G staff, though they are pretty spiteful to each other.
- Trademark Favourite Food: Meat.
- White-Haired Pretty Boy
- Wouldn't Hit a Girl: Less than Aoshi. His reluctance doesn't hinder him the very least bit when in competition.
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: Don't call her a "Baka!".
- Cell Phone: Makes extensive usage of hers.
- The Ditz
- Dye Hard: Has strands of blue hair.
- 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.
- Girlish Pigtails: Averted. She's okay for a ponytail, but that's all.
- Not So Harmless: She looks like an idiot and only weighs 39 kg, which would make her a bottom-feeder, but she's actually stronger than the standards for girls.
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: 150 cm, 39 kg, can smash opponents with ice cubes her own height. Manually.
- Small Name, Big Ego
- Trademark Favourite Food: Ice cream!
- Wrestler in All of Us: Uses the Diamond Dust move often used by joshi (female Japanese wrestlers).
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 so she quits messing with the tournament because he wants to win it fair.
- Anti Villain Protagonist: In fact, the only thing that doesn't make them outright heroes is that they work for the bad guys.
- 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 Kiyoshi:
Tropes associated with Aoshi:
- Above Good and Evil: He doesn't care about that kind of things.
- Always Save the Girl: Despite being a dick, by his rules, "men and women don't fight".
- Though, if a girl attacks him threateningly enough, he'll justify himself riposting.
- An Ice Person: Full force.
- Annoying Younger Sibling: Was this to Shakurou and Shiro. Both kept rejecting him and now, Aoshi's more or less screwed up, making his state of mind and his Face Heel Turn a bad Nice Job Breaking It, Hero turn of things.
- Badass Bookworm
- Badass in a Nice Suit: He usually dresses classy, and no doubt he's an excellent fighter.
- Berserk Button: Beating Shakurou, or men beating up girls.
- Blond Guys Are Evil: Not really evil, just working for the bad guys, and a dick to anyone who tries to mess with that.
- Blue and Orange Morality: He has his own standards.
- Broken Bird: Has been abandoned and left behind throughout his childhood. Nice Job Breaking Him, Bros.
- Cool Big Bro: In his early childhood, he thought of Shakurou and Shiro as this. Then he got rejected.
- Deadpan Snarker
- Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: To Akina, of all people! Nobody messes with Kiyoshi's plans.
- Evil Is Deathly Cold: He looks like the Good Is Not Nice type of person.
- Green-Eyed Monster: Bonus points for actually having Green Eyes.
- Hidden Depths: Deep inside, he has a Hair-Trigger Temper that would make him the Red Oni to Shakurou's Blue.
- Ineffectual Loner: Notably subverted, he actually is interested with Kiyoshi and can sometimes go out of his way to help his leader for no reason at all.
- Jerkass: Even though he's pretty gallant and likes fair fights, outside a match he falls into this.
- Jerkass Façade: When he notices there are matters for Kiyoshi, he shoos off most attempts to help.
- Lean and Mean: One of the leanest men around, and also one of the meanest when using his Jerkass Façade.
- Like Brother and Sister: His desperate need for a family leads him to be a better sibling to Haruka than Akina ever was.
- Purely Aesthetic Glasses: Wears those outside fights to look intelligent.
- Selective Obliviousness: He has his ideals, but he doesn't give a shit about anyone else's.
- The Stoic
- Unstoppable Rage: When he stalls for Kiyoshi, it takes a load of time and people to bring him down, because of this.
- Villain with Good Publicity: He is known as an elegant and courteous man, if a bit cold.
Tropes associated with Haruka:
- Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!
- Blondes are Evil: Averted. She's not evil per se, just absolutely thoughtless. But after growing a conscience with Aoshi... she starts as such.
- Cheerful Child: She looks like one when speaking (even things one shouldn't smile about). When not talking or interacting, she has a blank face.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: An extreme case. It even lead to her running away from the orphanage because she didn't know where she was going. Then Aoshi found her.
- Creepy Child
- Dissonant Serenity: She is always cheerful and serene. One could have thought she was very emotional, but she's the total contrary of that.
- The Drifter / Walking the Earth: A one-moment period stint, triggered unwittingly by Houka. When she left Akina and the other girls behind, Haruka didn't come back because of her general lack of attention. This resulted in her being found by Aoshi, and you know what that means.
- Girly Girl: Oppositely to Izumi (at least in terms of behaviour).
- Gradual Grinder: Since she is rather weak, she has to hit lots of times to actually win.
- Hope Is Scary: She is generally scared when Kiyoshi and Aoshi give her diction lessons, even though she loves speaking to people.
- Cute Chick In A Badass Suit: Her second outfit.
- Lack of Empathy: When she beats people, she doesn't give a thing about it, rather jumping around and yaying like a kid for having won.
- Parental Abandonment: The reason all her upbringing was left to her big sis' Akina.
- Pillar of Light: Punches vertically to make one, beginning her Ultimate Flower Storm Upper.
- Show Some Leg: Her third suit. Akina threw quite the temper tantrum when she saw it, thinking Aoshi and Kiyoshi were making her look like a prostitute, but when she gets to Aoshi, he tells her that Haruka composed her attire herself this once.
- Stronger Sibling: If you look who she's an Expy of, you'd think she is. Her sister doesn't think so.
Captain: Rigan Yoshimoto
Other members: Yuuji Uramichi, Akemi Reitou
Tropes associated with the team:
Tropes associated with Rigan:
Tropes associated with Yuuji:
- Badass Normal: Next to no magic talent, but still manages to be a contender.
- Blow You Away
- Boring, but Practical
- But Not Too Foreign: Averted. He's fully American-blooded, but raised in Japan.
- Counter Attack: Has one as part of his brawling style.
- 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.
- 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 (voluntarily on Rigan's part since he wears boots, not sandals).
- Spin Attack
- The Stoic: So much.
Tropes associated with Akemi:
Captain: Kintou Teisou
Other members: Tsuyoshi Seichi, Satome Rokuendo
Tropes associated with the team:
- Ambiguously Evil: Much like a Wild Card team. They out-gambit the Villain Protagonist teams, but they are Villain Protagonists too, and what they want isn't quite revealed...
- Batman Gambit
- Card-Carrying Villain: They admit being outright villainous to the other teams just so they don't meddle in their true carefully-planned goal.
- Enigmatic Minion: To the Operation G staff. Though they are kept in the dark for most of the real thing.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: Kintou, Tsuyoshi and Satome lead Teams Ougoku, Konryuu and Jundou to obvious failures.
- The Power of Friendship: Kintou and Satome are friends to Ginshi. Tsuyoshi? He's even closer to her.
- Supporting Protagonist: They brief the other teams claiming it's for Ringoto's security fairly often, but they do it wrong on purpose to Epic Fail effect, but this hides their true goals, bringing Mashin to the eyes of all to thwart his plans whatever they may be.
Tropes associated with Kintou:
Tropes associated with Tsuyoshi:
- Above Good and Evil: In his own view, he's so neutral that taking upon oneself to be good or evil is a good way to earn his disdain.
- Aloof Older Brother
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy
- Badass Back: Indulges in this heavily.
- Blood Knight
- Dark Is Not Evil: Though, in his case, Dark is still uncaring, violent, and alien, as well as a villainous Supporting Protagonist. It looks very much evil actually.
- Death from Above: His Splitting Purifier. The first part is just an overhead chop, but the second part is that exact same chop, done while descending of a hulk jump.
- Evil Counterpart: He looks like this to his younger brother Seino.
- Fingerless Gloves
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's extremely brutal and has no qualms hitting anyone if it means the team can advance unhindered (that's basically his role). Despite this, he usually stops at knocking people unconscious, and he could go as far as leaving the unconscious body to the partners just so they allow the victim to rest properly.
- Kamehame Hadoken: Being an Expy of a specialist, this was inevitable.
- I Need You Stronger: Tries to invoke a good challenge by "training" Seino.
- Meaningful Name: Tsuyoshi means that, well, he's strong. Damn right he is.
- Obliviously Evil
- Older Sidekick: To Kintou and Satome, he's a trustworthy Secret Keeper while also being The Brute.
- Spirited Competitor: And he goes to lengths just to preserve the competition.
- World's Strongest Man: Strives to be this, but keeps getting crossed by Kintou.
Tropes associated with Satome:
- Action Girl: Tries to avoid looking like one.
- Ambiguously Evil / Good All Along
- Bifauxnen: She looks slightly male, especially in her clothing, but her gender never is ambiguous.
- Byronic Heroine
- Blondes are Evil: It's a façade.
- Combat Pragmatist: Relies on her looks to be mistaken for "just a pretty girl".
- Crossdresser: Dresses like a man. Like a Bishōnen, but hey!
- French Jerk: She lived her first eleven years in France, and can be jerkish. She notes that the Japanese are much nicer than the French... except for her grandfather.
- Hair Flip: She just loves doing it.
- Long Lost Granddaughter: Was this to Mashin, because she has lived her eleven first years in a French orphanage.
- Multicolored Hair: In her second outfit.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: She has a lot of narcissistic manners for her to overplay, in order to hide her Hidden Depths.
- Also, she manipulated Team Ougoku into distrust, doing the most difficult part of the work when it came to drawing the teams to utter failure.
- Smug Snake: Behaves like this, though she's actually a Smug Super.
- Technicolor Fire: Green, like her inspiration Ash Crimson.
- Troll: Notably, she underlines Akemi's failure to realize that she got fooled by an impersonator of her own brother.
- Turned Against Their Masters: She turned against Mashin just before her apparition. In fact, she kickstarted a plot involving half of the cast, in order to force Mashin to reveal himself.
Tatsuya Zanjima, Miki Yagawa, Hakkou Seichi and Akina Chinai
Tropes associated with Tatsuya:
- Anime Hair
- Badass Grandpa: 55 years old.
- Badass Normal: Uses magic sparingly, yet he is reknowned for being nearly unbeatable head-on.
- Lamarck Was Right: Most definitely, his sons' strength makes him proud. Them constantly fighting each other, not so much.
- Clothes Make the Legend: Averted, he's reknowned, but the outfit he wore while he was a fearsome fighter has gone unremembered.
- Cool Old Guy
- Determinator: Even God Mode Eiko, who outpowers him by far isn't enough to keep him downed.
- 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 progress.
- Living Legend: To a degree, but he was as hated as loved. Even while not fighting, he has mixed reception. His unlikely survivals made people think he orchestrated fake attempts at taking his life.
- Made of Iron
- Pet the Dog: When he is told that Natsuki has used the tournament she organized for research, he expresses concern for his son Kiyoshi.
- Rated M for Manly: He was. And he shows obvious preferences towards manly men rather than bishies.
- Refuge in Audacity: He can think quite the flamboyant things.
- Spirited Competitor
Tropes associated with Miki:
Tropes associated with Hakkou:
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: When he ceases ignoring his own martial arts skills.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: CEO of the scientific enterprise called Number Zero. Also a major kicker of arses.
- Badass Cape
- Battle Aura: Proof he's much stronger than the others is that it shows up whenever he ceases holding back.
- Better as Friends: Pulled on him by Miki. He's a dozen of years older than her, after all.
- Bishōnen: Tries his hardest to be one at his age.
- The Dreaded: To the Operation G Staff. As much as they respect Miki, they fear having to fight Hakkou, because he is much more powerful than them.
- Holding Back the Phlebotinum: Doesn't engage his enemies often because his excessive power could lead to him getting jailed for overkill.
- Let's Get Dangerous: When he stops trying to be overly protective of his looks, he packs a hell of a punch and engages in displays of power that make pretty much all his peers jealous.
- Oh Crap: When he goes to take on Eiko and she takes his first assault without much effort.
- Psychic Powers: Only has the attacking variety.
- Physical God: God Mode Hakkou would be the God to end all Gods in terms of power, though Ringoto isn't okay with having Hakkou as a god-like entity because he has an "ungodly" behavior.
- Real Men Wear Pink: He takes great care of his long hair, and collects Shoujo manga.
- Rule Of Cool: One of his driving lines, oppositely to Tatsuya.
- Spam Attack
- Sphere of Destruction: His Ultimate, seen from afar, still as this visible.
- There Is No Kill Like Overkill: When he fights, he indulges into heavy displays of power that often end up being this.
Tropes associated with Akina:
- A Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Read: Reason she doesn't use her developed Psychic Powers all the time.
- Anime Hair: Brown with (usually) pink strands.
- Ascended Fangirl
- Badass Bookworm: She is all too happy to state that she could inflict a Curb-Stomp Battle on her sister.
- Badass Cape
- Brainy Brunette
- Cool Big Sis: For Haruka, though given how blank and devoid of feelings their interactions are, it doesn't look the part.
- Team Mom: She was this to a good part of the girls. Houka, Tenko, Izumi, Haruka and Akemi all have been trained to differing degrees by her.
- Cute Bookworm: To a certain degree.
- Deadpan Snarker
- Dye Hard: Always dyes her hair big time. Usually pink, but blue is not unseen.
- Extra Eyes: Usually manifests her Psychic Powers blatantly via an eye opening in the air out of nowhere.
- Friend to All Children: Works in an orphanage where she raises Haruka.
- Impossibly Cool Clothes
- Justice Will Prevail
- Luckily My Powers Will Protect Me: Since she exposes her powers so blatantly, you'd think she never bothered to hide them, like she wants everyone to know of her being a psychic.
- Morality Chain: She was this for Haruka until the beginning of the plot. She was a physical chain as well, preventing Haruka from drifting.
- Not Good with People
- Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right
- SNK Boss: Reaches this level of power.
- Toku: Likes this.
Operation G Staff
Natsuki Junrin, Niki Yagawa, Ginshi Kesshaku, Touma Toudo, Ringoto Teisou, Mashin Kisei, Houka-2, Eiko
Tropes associated with Natsuki:
- Absurdly Youthful Mother
- Abusive Stepmother: To Fuushi. She was very caring of Kiyoshi. But it was an experience for her to guess which of them two would be the stronger one.
- Action Mom: This once, it's not a good thing.
- Archnemesis Stepmom: To Fuushi, again.
- Batman Gambit: She loves predicting Fuushi's hate of her. She's the reason the Anti-Hero Team Kokujin is rather ineffectual.
- Big Screwed-Up Family: She invoked it by marrying with Tatsuya.
- Blondes are Evil
- Broken Bird: Has been broken at the tender age of 13 by a former executive of the then-illegal ''Number Zero'', who kidnapped her and experimented on her. She lost all sorts of moral compasses and took all the man's possessions for herself after he died.
- The Chosen One: Perhaps the cause she was experimented on was her inborn holy power.
- Evil Genius
- Flash Step
- For Science!: She even made her marriage and offspring her experiment!
- Guinea Pig Family: She drugged Kiyoshi more than once, and at the tournament she organizes, she drugs every single participant by hiding a serum in the food.
- Hot Mom: But an evil one.
- How Do I Shot Web?: Has inborn holy powers, but forgot how to use them after her traumatic childhood.
- Lack of Empathy: Real bad.
- Lady of War: Subverted: She isn't graceful in battle, just outside.
- Ninja: Has some elements of this because she's been trained to become one (of sorts) for several years, when she was kidnapped.
- Not Good with People: Ever since she lost her only friends at childhood.
- Poisonous Person
- Powered by a Forsaken Child: Inverted roles: she absorbed the lifeforce of her kidnapper.
- Pragmatic Villainy: She intervenes rarely, and if so it's for an experiment, or to stall Fuushi.
- Statuesque Stunner: Trumps most other girls in the setting at 186 cm (Ginshi still trumps her by being 190 cm tall). She had Tatsuya marrying her mere months after his former wife died.
- Wicked Stepmother
Tropes associated with Niki:
Tropes associated with Ginshi:
- Absurdly Youthful Adoptive Mother: She's 39, and even though she took in Tsuyoshi, she looks nowhere near her age of 39.
- 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
- Attack Reflector
- Audible Sharpness: When using magic to make slashing Hard Light.
- Badass in a Nice Suit: Dresses like her wealth allows for, and real strong.
- Badass Longhair
- Big Fancy House: How about aircraft as a 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.
- Fingerless Gloves: One. Her right prosthetic arm is fully hidden by a long glove.
- Flash Step
- For the Lulz: Her reasons. Though she knows Operation G is about enhancements, so she thinks about replacing her prosthetic right arm.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: She has a pretty ugly scar under her chest. She takes care of hiding it.
- 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.
- Kung-Fu Clairvoyance: Has high sensory ability she acquired at training.
- Lightning Bruiser: Leans toward Glass Cannon, usually.
- Omniglot: Speaks proficiently at least three languages (English, German and Japanese).
- Playing with Fire: Her Tactical Lance isn't an actual fireball, just an Energy Ball. But its upgrade Limit Break, Titan Drill has this added on for good measure.
- Poisoned Weapons: She copied a magic skill of poisoning from Niki who himself learned it.
- Power Copying: Holds some gift that allows her to do this.
- Red Baron: "Silvertongue", when alluding to her business practices.
- Slouch of Villainy
- Sore Loser: Still loses by a wide margin to Niki in these regards.
- Spirited Competitor: She is skirting the line with Blood Knight, though.
- Statuesque Stunner: 190 cm, 84 kg. She's the woman with the largest frame, by far.
Tropes associated with Touma:
- Animal Motifs: Cats, and sometimes the phoenix.
- Anti-Villain: Moreso than every other one. Types I and II.
- 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.
- Badass: To a certain degree. He can only fight short, but he can deliver quite the curbstomp as long as the fight is short-lived.
- Handicapped Badass: Has an unknown heart sickness that could kill him in one moment of hyperactivity, despite being really potent.
- Battle Aura: When he is serious, he has one, though this is a mark of the incoming Heroic RROD.
- Counter Attack
- Deadpan Snarker
- 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.
- Everything's Better with Spinning: His Rinshuu (Circular Heel) has so many variations 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.
- Expy: If it's noted here, it's because Touma's case is strange. Originally - aka when I worked on A-Ko Project with my brother rather than this Suspiciously Similar Substitute - he was to expy Tenjou Tenge's Mitsuomi Takayanagi, due to interaction with several of my brother's characters. I had to change the expying when porting him into the very different context.
- 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, strengthening his will to fight it. He rarely 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.
- I Did What I Had to Do: His attitude towards his "bad" business in the Operation G. He's fully willing to be jailed for what he has done, but actually he didn't do this much.
- Ill Boy
- Jerkass: To anyone that bothers him. It's justified since he's really high on edge, working his ass off to save his own life. Too much to bother with nuisances.
- Kindhearted Cat Lover
- Legacy Character: Of sorts. He took the place of his grandpa after the latter died by the same heart sickness Touma contracted.
- Nigh Invulnerability: If he's serious, he's solid enough to receive little injury even from being punched out a window. Though, this doesn't cover the ensuing Heroic RROD.
- Parental Abandonment: He has been raised by his grandfather, and is known to live alone now that the old man died.
Tropes associated with Ringoto:
Tropes associated with Mashin:
Tropes associated with Houka-2:
- Ax Crazy
- Blood Knight: Some things never go off.
- 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 being the only things she had, she attacks the heroes at random.
- Divergent Character Evolution: Zig Zagged. Houka-2 is originally Brainwashed and Crazy, and since she knew nothing else, Brainwash Residue ensued and she stayed as she was, which means evil. She's told to be more like Houka to blend better, but as she learns, she realizes that being like her doesn't help people understand her, so she wants to avert being exactly the same.
- Evil Knockoff
- Playing with Fire: Same as normal Houka.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning
- Shadow Archetype: Evidence is evidence.
Tropes associated with Eiko:
Tropes associated with Japan 4000:
- Anthropomorphic Personification: Yui is one of water, though she is only one of many.
- Battle Trophy: Tora has loads of them.
- Bishōnen: Most boys.
- Bonus Boss: If you do well enough, Hoshiko will actually Ninja Log Tora's "death blow", and proceed to fight you after him.
- Boss Rush / Difficulty Spike: 4-round Boss Rush (if you're good enough to unlock the True Final Boss fight, which is determined at this point) once your team is the only one left.
- Calling Your Attacks: Subverted. All the characters say nothing, or something completely off.
- Charles Atlas Superpower: Tengen. Kare does not count because he has natural Super Strength In the Blood.
- Corrupt Corporate Executive: Tora. And Authority Equals Asskicking as he's the True Final Boss.
- Creepy Child: 17-year old Yae, when she's not being The Ditz, as she's a demon with a head of Orochi sealed inside of her.
- Critical Hit: Tengen's Sengenzuki can be charged to deal one of those.
- Cursed with Awesome: Nen is a kind of undead, revived by a curse cast by his own desire for revenge. It grants him the ability to never tire out and magical powers, without any drawback to hear of.
- The eight girls all have a head of Orochi sealed inside of them. Which means that they all have poison powers, can grow fangs and claws, and have Super Strength. Their reactions are diverse.
- Deal with the Devil: Somewhat.
- Doppleganger Attack: Yui uses it.
- Enemy Mine: Shouki and Yakura are revealed to be this by Tora.
- Japanese Mythology: Almost everywhere.
- Knight Templar: Denshi appears to be this behind his Nice Guy attitude, since he is pursuing the organizators because the tournament is off of the Student Council's schedule.
- Nebulous Evil Organization: R.Y.U.
- Orochi: Yae, Nasha, Maki, Yui, Suze, Tenne, Yuki and Mika all have one head of Orochi sealed inside them.
- Parts Unknown: Averted. Though there is magic and all characters are non-human, they are all from Japan.
- Public Domain Artifact: Mentioned, but nobody possesses any.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad: Shouki and Yakura can be considered this.
- Science Is Bad: Yakura, local Mad Scientist, is a tad Ax Crazy when fighting. Though he's not evil.
- Selfish Good, Selfish Evil, Selfish Neutral, Lawful Stupid, Stupid Neutral, Chaotic Stupid, Lawful Neutral and Chaotic Neutral: I decided to not choose anybody's alignment as truly good or evil. Well, except the four bosses.
- Taken for Granite: Suze can use this power.
- True Final Boss: Tora and Hoshiko form the true final boss team. And when you defeat one - whichever one - Tora pulls a Back Stab on Hoshiko and goes truly SNK Boss.
- Turned Against Their Masters: Subverted: The moment Hoshiko considers rebelling, Tora pulls a You Have Outlived Your Usefulness, fires her, and KO's her before the final fight.
- Unblockable Attack: Tengen's fully-charged Sengenzuki. Also, without charging or anything, there's Hoshiko's Soushuu Senpuu.
- World of Badass: Humans have to survive since powerful Youkai have somewhat merged with their civilization.
- World of Chaos: Japan is sealed off of the world, the sky is replaced by Tron Lines, and the horizon is fairly close...
- World Of No Grandparents: Even world of no parents, and this despite the kids being in high school!
- World Limited to the Plot
- Youkai: All over the damn place. The only ones to not be some sort of monster in A Form You Are Comfortable With are Nasha, human, and Nen, recently-revived zombie.
A fiction designed with my brother in a setting similar to BlazBlue
Characters inspired from BlazBlue canon:
Tropes associated with Loke:
- The Ace: A Child Prodigy who was referred to as a war hero, all this under age 20. He utterly enjoys his fame...
- Broken Ace: ... his actual situation as a wanted-for-treason fugitive, not so much.
- Always Save the Girl: He can be rather caring towards some females in the cast, especially Caelia.
- An Ice Person
- Asskicking Equals Authority: How he got up in the ranks. He believes really hard in this.
- Cryonics Failure: All too prone to use that.
- Dating Catwoman: Somewhat, with Caelia. She's good, but he fails to notice that she's still good.
- Dismotivation: With the authority he had, he thought he could get away with not doing what he didn't want to.
- Evil Weapon: Much like his inspiration.
- Good Is Not Nice
- Insistent Terminology: Even though he's a defector, he holds Pride in his former rank and his title of Hero.
- Jerkass: Of course, taking after the God of Assholes himself, Jin Kisaragi.
- Knight in Sour Armor: He finds everything somewhat dull and depressing.
- Names to Run Away From Really Fast: His first name is Loke. Like in Loki, and yes, that Loki.
- Nietzsche Wannabe: Somewhat. At least moreso than Jin, since he remains rather apathetic. His will is clearly to wipe out everything to start his new order from scratch.

- Purely Aesthetic Glasses: Don't have him take them off.
- The Rival

- The Stoic: Usually.
- Not So Stoic: There are a buch of persons you don't want to talk about near him.

- Berserk Button: Faye's clones. And their clones. And the clones of their clones! * Needless to say, there are so many that he keeps losing count, and is more-than-unhappy about it.
- Evil Laugh: The only thing that doesn't make his deep laughters of excitement evil is that Adelbert is actually good.
- Green Aesop: His underlying reasons.
- Hero Antagonist: He definitely doesn't like Oden's way of solving this.

Tropes associated with Regulus:
- Mortimer von Abendroth
Tropes associated with Mortimer:
Tropes associated with Nobunaga:
Tropes associated with Albus:
- Anti-Hero: Considered his mental scars and you'll understand that he rarely approaches people by himself. Though, he really is nice to those who do approach him, like Shike.
- Badass Bookworm
- Child Prodigy: Given how he has a rather good level in alchemy (he's faring better at it than a good part of the cast), he is this.
- Creepy Child
- Hyperspace Arsenal: Averted: he hides his things in his Badass Cape.
- Sociopathic Hero: Still is one; thank Shike for averting the most negative aspects of it.

- Clone Degeneration: Being a clone of a clone of a clone, she has almost nothing in common with her original.

- Dumb Blonde: Averted. She's in fact rather smart, much more than her original.

- Shock and Awe: His attacks are electrical in nature, and his weapon is a highly-conductive sword.
- The Smart Guy: His analytical personality constrasts Kouma's hotheaded attitude and Touko's Obfuscating Stupidity.
- The Spock: A tamer variant to Touko's Kirk and Kouma's McCoy. He has the advantage of not considering people's deaths as just, though.
- Tin Man: Though he's a robot, his AI is developed enough to develop emotion. He doesn't seem to realize it, or thinks that since it's programmed, it's not real emotion.

- Wind is Green: His uniform is green as sign of his status as an air force officer.
Leveling Rusty Blade
Almost hiatus since my computer home doesn't have Internet. I use my free time at university to get to my page. Enjoy.
