Video Game / Under Night In-Birth
Thousand night, Recurrence night, Reverie and Invite.
and...[7days Immortal] Unreal BLACK THINGS.
The deep darkness of the hollow night. New shells of incarnation alight.
One swing of a sword. Sinuous white snake. Savage fangs of the beast.
Tonight, the deepest night. Blessing for all who confronts...

Under Night In-Birth is a HD 2D Fighting Game made by French Bread, the makers of Melty Blood, originally released on September 20, 2012 in arcades.

It was later released, in it's Exe:Late form, on Steam on June 12, 2016.

The console version boasts a few new exclusive characters:
  • Nanase: A young schoolgirl who is pursuing Hyde for unknown reasons, wielding a BFS and the power of wind. Brought to arcades for the EXE: Late update.
  • Byakuya: An enigmatic young man that really is a spider-esque being, whom hunts down and slaughters people. Brought to arcades for the EXE: Late update.

1st Clause. DIVIDE.

  • Lady of War: Orie is pretty much checking every list of requirements of this trope. Yuzuriha's fighting style is also pretty graceful, but she's more energetic than most examples.
