* KnightTemplarBigSister: Believe it or not how we see Nine in Franchise/BlazBlue is actually an improvement compared to how she is now. She is so paranoid that she believes that literally everyone who even knows about Little Sister will try to kidnap her, that Me refuses to even let Little Sister go outside and tries to attack Nobody despite her saying she will lead Me to her.

* EnergyAbsorption: [[spoiler:Her imitation Original Grimoire can absorb the seithr around her and absorbs the Memory Fragments over the course of the game]].
* ExoticEyeDesigns: [[spoiler:Her Original Grimoire eye has black sclera and the pupil is a [[RedEyesTakeWarning large red X]]]].
* EyepatchOfPower: She wears a large black eyepatch over her left eye. [[spoiler: It is actually a PowerLimiter that prevents her Original Grimoire from absorbing too much seithr]].
* FetusTerrible: [[spoiler:She has always the ability to attract seithr towards herself, even when she was still in her mother's womb. The Original Grimoire replica is used to counteract that.]]

* MagicalEye: [[spoiler:Her left eye is a replica of the Original Grimoire. Her father created it and implanted it in her so that it could safely absorb the seithr she naturally attracts to herself. This Grimoire saved both her and her mother when she was in utero from dying of seithr poisoning due to Me’s ability. Like Touya’s Grimoire it can used the stored seithr to activate [=XBlaze=]]].

* PowerIncontinence: [[spoiler:She cannot control her seithr attraction and nearly killed her mother in utero because of this. By the time of ''Lost: Memories'' she still can’t turn it off and therefore can never stop her Original Grimoire from absorbing the seithr, even when the vast quantity of it in the Phantom Field is too much and causes her intense pain]].
* PowerLimiter: [[spoiler:Her [[EyepatchOfPower eyepatch]] limits her how much seithr her Original Grimoire absorbs to prevent it from overloading. Me has to remove it to activate her [=XBlaze=]. It is unclear if she still needs it at the end of the game since she is wearing it in the ending [=CGs=] but not in the post-credits scene]].

-> A small doll with sentience that belonged to Ripper before his death. Now Kiri holds it and considers it his OnlyFriend. In truth, he is Ripper; or rather he is a doll possessed by Ripper’s soul. When the Magic Guild resurrected Ripper’s corpse, for some unknown reason a new personality, who become Kiri, was born inside it and Ripper’s soul was pushed out, forcing him to possess the Brain Cat doll to survive. He wants to reclaim his body, manipulating Kiri’s sense of justice to gather enough seithr for him to perform the fusion. After Kiri goes berserk and drains half the seithr from Touya and the Original Grimoire, Brain Cat succeeds in returning to his body and hijacks control from Kiri, becoming Freaks.

Brain Cat also tricks him into attacking Touya, despite learning that he is the most important person to Es, by saying that she is being deceived and Kiri needs to protect her from him.

->The BigBad of ''Lost: Memories''. The result of Ripper’s soul hijacking Kiri’s body after draining half of the seithr from the Original Grimoire, Freaks is the true resurrection of Ripper. Possessing the same sadistic personality but with the added power of the Original Grimoire, he is far more dangerous than Ripper ever was. Using his newfound powers Freaks was able to kill Touya, Kuon, Mei and Elise in the timeline without Es, no matter how times the events repeated.

* CameBackStrong: He revived by absorbing half of the seithr in the Original Grimoire, which is more than enough to regain his full power that Touya stole from him and also lets him use a form of [=XBlaze=].
* CastingAShadow: After draining half of Touya's seither he gained the power of the Original Grimore, which manifests in a similar form to Restriction Release (Soul Eater).

* LightningBruiser: Just like Ripper only worse since the power of the Original Grimoire makes him even stronger, faster and significantly more durable.
* MadeOfIron: The seithr from the Original Grimoire has made him much tougher able to survive being hit by powerful spells like Mei’s [[ShockAndAwe Raijyu Shourai]] and Kuon’s [[PlayingWithFire Flamme lichtstrahl]] with the only effect being that he says they actually hurt a little bit. Even Kuon and Elise’s most powerful attack, [[CombinationAttack Soul]] [[DeathFromAbove Direction]] is only able to do a little bit of damage to him. Unfortunately for him this only applies to his body. His Crystal is just as vulnerable to the Murakumo and its [[BloodyMurder blood replica]] as any other.
* ManaDrain: Like Kiri, he can drain seithr by biting someone, storing it in his Crystal. He uses this on Touya after surviving Kuon and Elise’s [[DeathFromAbove Soul Direction]], draining enough power from the Original Grimoire to use his own [=XBlaze=].

* SmugSuper: More so than before thanks to the power of the Original Grimoire. He flat out calls himself invincible.
* SoulJar: Because Ripper’s soul entered Kiri’s body via the seithr Kiri absorbed from Touya’s Original Grimoire, his soul is inside of his Crystal. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard This ends up being his downfall]], since destroying his crystal destroys his soul as well.

-> A young girl who will grow up to become Nine of the Six Heroes. She lives in the Magister's City: Ishana with her little sister (referred to as Imouto in the story). Watashi loves her sister very dearly and has taken up raising her and protecting her but is angry and violent to everyone else. She loathes her father, who used her and her mother as guinea pigs in his experiments.

-> After getting sucked into the Phantom Field and separated from Imouto, she forgets her name and meets Nobody. In order to find her missing sister, Watashi traverses the Phantom Field in search of the Memory Fragments that will let her reach Imouto at the lowest level of the Phantom Field.

However certain names, specifically those related to her real name, are rejected in various ways. For Phantom and various names related to Mercury it will forcibly cut off your input (turning Phantom into Phant) while others have specific error messages.

-> A mysterious girl who has lived in the Phantom Field for as long as she can remember. Nobody claims to have no memory but somehow knows all of the Phantom Field’s strange properties. She is perpetually happy and always wanting to have fun, especially having a fondness for riddles and puzzles. When she meets Watashi, she offers her the chance to find her sister, Imouto, by guiding her to the bottom of the Phantom Field. As she and Watashi travel together the two become each other's first and most precious friend.

%%->Her true identity is Es, or rather the Embryo. After Es fell into despair and crystalized her memories into Memory Fragments, Nobody was born as a personification of the Embryo. She is forced to stay in the Phantom Field to prevent the Embryo from distorting the world. With the help of Watashi, she is able to use the power of the Embryo to create a human body for Es and send it to the real world with Es’s memories, but sacrificing her own Phantom Memories in the process.

* LoveHurts: [[spoiler:She was literally born because of this. After Watashi returns to the Phantom Field she says that she prepared herself to always live alone since she cannot return to Touya and tells Watashi to leave since her being there only makes it more difficult and painful to return to being alone]].
