Basically dolls fighting a game of ThereCanBeOnlyOne for the ultimate prize of becoming the perfect girl, Alice.²----²²[[foldercontrol]]²²[[folder:The Protagonists]]²!!'''Shinku'''²[[quoteright:225:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/77220.jpg]]²²-->Voiced by: Creator/MiyukiSawashiro (JP), Creator/YuiHorie (JP - drama CD), Creator/MelaLee (Geneon), Creator/LuciChristian (Sentai) (EN)²²The fifth doll of the dolls, and TheProtagonist of the series. She is restrained, noble and sometimes demanding, but is nevertheless a good-hearted doll who simply does what she feels needs to be done. She fights with rose's petals and her artificial spirit is Holly.²-----²%%* AloofBigSister: Towards Hinaichigo and the twins, at times.²* BritishStuffiness: She puts on a slight British accent in the English dub.²* CaneFu: In the anime, aside from manipulating rose petals, her other weapon is a cane. That's right. A freakin' cane.²* CoolBigSis: When she isn't being aloof, especially towards Hinaichigo.²* CryCute: [[spoiler:She started crying after having to leave behind Suiseiseki, something that goes against her own way to play the Alice Game.]]²%%* CulturedBadass²* DeadpanSnarker: She's not above giving snarky jabs to her fellow dolls and Jun.²* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Done twice already. Jun (young and older) thought this cute, little doll was adorable while she was inert in their hands. They changed their mind when she woke up and delivered an ArmorPiercingSlap to them.²* FlowerMotifs: Red Roses.²* ForgottenPhlebotinum: Where did her ability to [[{{Necromancy}} necromance]] by inserting petals into toys go?²%%* GirlInABox²%%* GirlishPigtails²* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Though the heart of gold is down deep, ''[[{{Tsundere}} really]]'' [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold deep]], Shinku's golden hair fits her elegant and feminine personality and she can be very kind when she wants to.²%%* HeroicSacrifice²%%* TheHeroine²* IcyBlueEyes: She gives off a piercing and unyielding stare with her blue eyes.²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Although she can be a jerk to Jun and the other dolls, she has a kind heart beneath it all.²* JerkassBall: After Suigintou is revived in Ouverture and shows her Roza Mystica, Shinku is truly shocked and attempts to deny it because to her Suigintou is an incomplete doll so she isn't worthy of either having a Roza Mystica or calling herself a Rozen Maiden. Naturally Suigintou is truly hurt by these words and comes to believe that Shinku never saw her as a true friend and only acted kind towards her out of pity and becomes Shinku's archenemy. ²%%* TheKirk²%%* LadyOfWar²* LethalChef: On the rare occasion she cooks. There's a reason she always wants Jun to make her tea other than nobility.²%* LittleGirlsKickShins ²* LittleMissSnarker: She has a dry and witty personality for a doll.²* MeaningfulName: Her name is the Japanese word for "Crimson".²* MementoMacGuffin: In Ouverture, it's revealed she had a brooch that was given to her by Rozen. [[spoiler:It was destroyed by Suigintou, which is the reason she hates her.]]²* MistressAndServantBoy: She believes Jun is her servant.²* NiceJobBreakingItHeroine: As seen in Ouverture, she is pretty much solely to blame for Suigintou turning out the way she did. Later, Shinku comes to realize it and apologizes to her. Suigintou, while genuinely taken back, doesn't let go of her hatred that she has been nurturing for centuries.²* NotSoDifferent: Just watch the way she acts after losing her arm and notice the amount of similarities between her and the way Suigintou acts while not on jerkass mode.²* OjouRinglets²* PetalPower²* TheProtagonist: She's the main focal character of the manga.²* PunnyName: Her name is also the Japanese pronunciation of the word ''Cinq'' (French for "five").²* RapunzelHair: Her long hair reaches past her waist.²* RedIsHeroic: She wears a red dress and is one of the main heroines.²* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Suigintou's Blue.²* SiblingRivalry: She and Suigintou are not known to get along well.²%%* SomethingAboutARose²* SoProudOfYou: Her smile while she sees Adult Jun organize the stage can be taken as this, since she's thinking how much Jun has grown and progressed without him even realizing it.²* SpotOfTea: There's a high chance that whenever she asks Jun to do something, it usually involves him bringing her tea which she consideres SeriousBusiness as she demands it to be made to her specifications.²%%* TheStoic²* SugarAndIcePersonality: She's basically just putting up her stoic image to appear in a way she believes is worthy of Alice, but she shows that she does care deeply about Jun and her sisters in her own way. Also a rare case of one doubling as a {{Tsundere}}.²* SympathyForTheDevil: While she and Suigintou hold a very hostile relationship, Shinku does feel pity for her and is aware that she is to blame for having their relationship turn this sour. This sympathy is augmented after Shinku temporarily loses her arm, thus becoming an incomplete doll like Suigintou, and realizes how wrong she was in calling her junk.²* TinyTyrannicalGirl: She treats Jun like a manservant despite being a just over two-foot tall porcelain doll. Older Jun never imagined that the beautiful and sweet-looking little doll Shinku of the pictures could be so naggy.²* {{Tsundere}}: Type A. She's condescending, bossy, irritable and constantly abuses Jun verbally and physically, but there are moments in that she shows she really does care about Jun and her sisters.²%%* WellExcuseMePrincess: Her relation with Jun.²* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: She's afraid of cats because one almost swallowed her wind-up key in the past.²²!!'''Jun Sakurada'''²[[quoteright:225:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/50896.jpg]]²²-->Voiced by: Creator/AsamiSanada (JP - Young), Creator/SanaeKobayashi (JP - drama CD), Creator/MonaMarshall (Geneon), Creator/ShannonEmerick (Sentai) (EN)²²Basically the other main character of the series, being the guy who actually kicks off the plot by winding up Shinku. In short, he is a reclusive loser who has a fear of school after a traumatic event that turned him in his class's laughing stock.²-----²* TheAce: Deconstructed in his backstory in the anime. [[spoiler:When he was in school, he excelled academically as well as being good at sports and crafts, and was highly popular with the other students. [[BrokenAce Then the sheer pressure of it all caused him to mentally collapse]] and turn into a {{Hikikomori}}.]]²* BookDumb: Just before he shunned schooling altogether. {{Justified}} as he is already too broken at this point.²* BreakTheCutie: Practically the reason he became a {{Hikikomori}}, specifically [[spoiler:he was dismissed by his peers becaused ''he likes sewing'', and his self-image went downhill from there.]]²* ChewToy: Especially to Shinku and Suiseiseki.²* ChildHater: He ''hates'' little kids.²* ClassicalAntiHero: Early in the story.²* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He's revealed to have powers similar to Rozen himself, which even amazes Shinku.²* {{Deuteragonist}}: ''Rozen Maiden'', aside from being about Shinku and the dolls, is about Jun and his life getting better for them.²* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:After his secret hobby of sewing girls' clothes was exposed to his whole school, he turned BlueWithShock and puked.]] ²%%* {{Hikikomori}}: [[spoiler:He gets over it.]]²%%* JerkWithAHeartOfGold²%%* LonerTurnedFriend²* MistressAndServantBoy: How Shinku sees their relationship: he's the Servant Boy to Shinku's Mistress. ²%%* NonActionGuy²* NoRespectGuy: To Suiseiseki. Borderlines on a WellExcuseMePrincess relationship since Suiseiseki has a hidden crush on Jun.²* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Subverted in that he doesn't exactly go to school. [[spoiler:He does start going to school in the manga, and is studying to catch up everything he lost before going back in the anime]].²* {{Reincarnation}}: [[spoiler:Is the true reincarnation of Rozen himself.]]²* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: Shirosaki thought Tomoe was Jun's girlfriend. It did not end well.²* SupportingProtagonist: He's the master of Shinku, but he himself is a NonActionGuy most of the time, though he can provide useful support from the sidelines.²* ThisLoserIsYou: Jun practically represents the many Japanese teens who are {{Hikikomori}}s for a bad incident at school.²* UnfazedEveryman: With dolls running rampant in his house, it's amazing how he can put up with everything going on.²* UnmanlySecret: He likes to design and sew girls' clothes, specially ElegantGothicLolita ones. [[spoiler:He drew one for a girl of his class who was participating in a contest but forgot to erase it; his teacher found it out, exposed it to the whole school and everybody started to whisper he was weird and make fun of it. He never returned to school out of embarrasment.]]²* VoiceWithAnInternetConnection: In the first half of ''Tales'' [[spoiler:as he can only comunicate from the N-Field to the outside worlds via emails.]]²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:The Rozen Maidens]]²!!'''Suigintou'''²[[quoteright:225:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/63352.jpg]]²²->Voiced by: Creator/RieTanaka (JP), Creator/MamikoNoto (JP - drama CD), Creator/KarenStrassman (Geneon), Creator/JessicaCalvello (Sentai) (EN)²²The first doll of the Rozen Maidens, she served as the antagonist in the first season. Of all the dolls, she's the one who wants to become Alice the most to please Rozen and prove she does deserve being the perfect girl. Despise not having a medium until the end of the s1 anime and manga, she's very powerful. Her artificial spirit is Mei-Mei.²-----²* AccentAdaptation: In the English dub, she had a weird Eastern European accent in her voice. [[{{Dracula}} Guess what kind of mental image they're trying to give with that accent]].²* AdaptationalBadass: In the 2004 anime, Suigintou nearly managed to beat her sisters by herself at the end of the first season, without needing a Medium. For that matter, Megu was Anime!Suigintou's first medium, while Manga!Suigintou had several across the centuries, and she still managed to match Shinku in all their fights. ²* AdaptationalVillainy: Zigzagged In the 2004 anime Suigintou comes off as more villainous than her manga counterpat (though she gets better after meeting Megu), with her displaying both a level of sadism and a hatred towards Shinku that Manga!Suigintou never showed. At the same time however, Anime!Suigintou at first was a lot nicer than Manga!Suigintou and possesses a more legitimate FreudianExcuse for her current personality.²* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler: Both her deaths in both seasons are so heartwrenching that even Shinku, her most hated enemy, mourns her death in both situations.]]²* AntiVillain: In the first season, she appeared to be a straight villain, until it is revealed in the final episode the main reason behind her behavior. In Träumend, she meeting Megu and seeing Shinku apologizing to her makes her start to mellow down slowly, to the point she mostly wanted Roza Mystica in order to save Megu. Ouverture gives us her StartOfDarkness.²* ArcVillain: The main antagonist of the first season, before being replaced as the BigBad by Kirakishou (Barasuishou in ''Träumend''). ²* BetaTestBaddie: In the anime, she's literally incomplete due to premature animation.²* BrokenBird: Being incomplete and seemingly unloved left her with trust issues, a tendency towards aggression and generally being a jerk. But she really just wants to have someone to be happy with.²* BullyingADragon: She boldly went and pressed [[CuteAndPsycho Kirakishou's]] {{Berserk Button}}s.²* CoolSword: In the anime, and she [[{{Hammerspace}} keeps it somewhere (and somehow) inside her wings]].²* CreepyCoolCrosses: She has a lot of inverted cross imagery across her dress, [[spoiler:representing Rozen's rebellion against God in his desire to create life, and how Suigintou is meant to bear Rozen's sins.]]²* CryCute: [[spoiler:Her very last appearance in Träumend in Megu's window has her crying.]]²* DarkAndTroubledPast: Her creator left her incomplete and started working on the other dolls, though Suigintou was still hellbent on finding her father. She later meets Shinku, with whom she became good friends with. And then she finds out that her friend never saw her as true Rozen Maiden, having even kept her ignorant of several important facts, and most of her previous kindness was done out of pity. Obviously Suigintou doesn't take this well and vows unending hatred towards her previous friend.²* DarkMagicalGirl: Her black-and-white colour scheme is a good clue to this; she's lonely and bad at social interaction, and can be jealous and mean to make up for it, which obviously only alienates people further. What she really wants is her father's love.²%%* DeadpanSnarker²* {{Determinator}}: So desperate to become Alice that even without an acting Medium, she's still powerful enough to match blows with Shinku (who has a medium).²* DiscOneFinalBoss: She served as the BigBad for the first part of the anime and manga. ²* DontYouDarePityMe: In Ouverture, [[spoiler:the reason she came to hate Shinku is that she saw Suigintou as just an incomplete doll and pretended to be her friend out of pity]].²* ElegantGothicLolita: A black dress with cross imagery and fitting headdress are her trademark outfit.²* EnemyMine: She may hate Shinku's guts, but she was willing to put that aside in order to fight Kirakishou with Shinku's help.²* EvilAlbino: She has the requisite white hair, pale skin, and red-tinted eyes. ²* FeatherFlechettes: She mainly fights by firing feathers from her wings as projectiles.²* TheFinalTemptation: [[spoiler:Kirakishou offers to give her her Rosa Mystica if Suigintou gives Megu to her.]] She doesn't buy it.²* GigglingVillain: Does this a ''lot''.²* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: She refers to the other dolls, especially Shinku, as "junk", to the point that is her CatchPhrase, and swore that she would turn Shinku into a junk, but her [[spoiler: dying scene]] in the first season makes it clear she called the other dolls junk out of fear of called a junk on her own, because she [[spoiler: actually is incomplete]]. ²* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Probably the only reason why her wings can be dragon heads.²* IWillFindYou: In ''Tale'', Suigintou looked through thousands of doors in the N-Field looking for [[spoiler:Megu]], who was abducted by Kirakishou.²* {{Jerkass}}: She is cruel to other people, especially her sisters - ''except'' for [[MoralityPet Megu]], [[{{Tsundere}} who she still insults]].²* JerkassFacade: In 'Träumend'' she pretends that she only wants a Roza Mystica in order to beat the Alice Game. Shinku only finds out that she also wants it to save Megu after Suigintou dies and she absorbs her Roza Mystica.²* JerkassWoobie: What she turns out to be after it is explained her [[LoveMakesYouEvil motivations]].²* LittleMissBadass: Although she is noticeably larger than other dolls. ²%%* LittleMissSnarker²* LoveMakesYouEvil: She want love, but since she's angry and mean to most people, she's denied it, [[ViciousCycle which only makes her even more angry.]]²* MeaningfulName: Suigintou means "Mercury Lamp" in Japanese.²* MysticalWhiteHair: A white-haired doll brought to life.²* NoodleIncident: Kanaria uses one of those to blackmail Suigintou in the manga, but like the majority of the cases of the trope, we never get to know what it is.²* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Her default attitude towards Shinku,to the point of using her own body to shield Shinku from Barasuishou's attacks, while lampshading the trope, which led to her death.²* PerpetualMolt: Everytime she shows up or is about to, the page or screen fills with black feathers. Justifed because her wings and feathers are her weapons.²* PetTheDog: [[spoiler:Stays with Kanaria after the exhausting fight against Kirakishou's new "sister".]]²* PrecisionFStrike: Seldom happens, but it ''still'' happens.²* PsychoticSmirk: In certain situations, she has this on. Not really "psychotic", but her face can look very creepy.²* RedEyesTakeWarning: More like Pinkish-Red Eyes Take Warning, but...²* RedOniBlueOni: Color-inverted. Red to Shinku's blue.²* {{Revenge}}: Aside from her goal of becoming Alice, she also hates Shinku with a passion.²* SiblingRivalry: She and Shinku are not known to get along well. ²* TeethClenchedTeamwork: With Shinku in ''Tale'' when both are up against Kirakishou.²* TheRival: She sees Shinku as her rival.²* TheStoic: Has some moments of being this.²* TookALevelInKindness: ²** In Träumend she meets Megu, a girl that sees herself as incomplete and worthless, a feeling that Suigintou [[CommonalityConnection deeply relate to and is what made her grow fond of the girl]]. After seeing that Megu's life force could be used to enhance her powers, Suigintou tries her best to not use it and is horrified when she realizes that she has been using it without realizing. Her devotion to Megu reaches such level that she partially forsakes her long-time goal of absorbing all Roza Mysticas in order to become Alice in favor of using them to fully heal Megu.²** After Shinku apologizing to her for calling her junk, Suigintou's hatred towards her starts to diminish. While she still hates Shinku and wants to defeat her, she stops being as obsessive as she used to be and even drops most of her previous sadistic demeanor while fighting the other dolls. In ''Tale'', she acts more like a jerk than an actual villain towards her sisters and her relationship towards Shinku has evolved from mortal enemies into a healthier SiblingRivalry.²* {{Tsundere}}: Type A. She likes [[MoralityPet Megu]], the only person she shows sympathy to. But she usually tries to act like she doesn't care about her and calls her an idiot for being so weird. [[spoiler:[[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] when Megu eventually leaves her and goes straight to Kirakishou!]]²* TsurimeEyes: Since she tends to be more on the harsh and antagonistic side, she fittingly have the "strong personality" eyes.²* UsedToBeASweetKid: As seen in ''Ouverture''.²* VillainousBSOD: [[spoiler:In the manga, after learning that Hinaichigo willingly gave her Roza Mystica to Shinku, she realizes that Souseiseki's Roza Mystica had been hurting her because she stole it. She lets both Suiseiseki and Souseiseki go because of this to reflect upon the purpose of the Alice game, commenting snarkily that she will demand the Roza Mystica back later rather than at that point]].²* WellDoneDaughterGirl: All she wants is her father's love. Another trait she shares and makes her sympathize with Megu.²* WellIntentionedExtremist: In ''Träumend'' she wants a Roza Mystica not only to become Alice but to save her medium Megu as well.²* WhiteHairBlackHeart: She has white hair and is an evil DarkMagicalGirl.²* WingedHumanoid: She has a pair of black bird wings. She can morph her wings in the form of black dragons, but doesn't do it often. {{Deconstructed}} as in the manga [[spoiler:her wings are deteriorating her back]].²* WorthyOpponent: To Shinku.²²!!'''Kanaria'''²[[quoteright:225:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/52808.jpg]]²²-->Voiced by: Yumi Shimura (JP), Creator/CristinaValenzuela (Geneon), Creator/MonicaRial (Sentai) (EN)²²The second Rozen Maiden doll, Kanaria makes her appearance only later in the series. Her medium is named Mitsu (but everyone calls her Micchan), who is a maniac doll collector, and her artificial spirit is named Pizzicato. Kanaria considers herself to be the smartest Maiden and often boasts about it, but her plans almost always fail in hilarious ways. Personality-wise, she is similar to Hinaichigo and like her and Suiseiseki, Kanaria has a VerbalTic: "Kashira" (Feminine version of "I wonder?" adaptated to "Maybe" in the official English release of the manga). However, Kanaria ''is'' competent in battle, using the sonic waves of her violin to fight.²-----²* AccidentalMisnaming: The other dolls have been shown not to remember her name properly.²* BadassBoast: She tries to do one in the manga, but Older!Jun interrupts it much to her dismay.²%%* BlowYouAway: Her wind-based violin powers.²* ButtMonkey: Most scenes she's in have her try some kind of crazy plan or boast about her infiltration skills, but they never work and people just make fun of her for it.²* TheChewToy: She screws up ''every time'' without anyone noticing.²* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: While she is similar to Hinaichigo personality-wise, she is very competent in battle, managing to defeat Suiseiseki, Souseiseki, and Hinaichigo '''simultaneously''' in the anime. Also in the manga [[spoiler:she almost defeated Shinku when she thought she stole Hinaichigo's Roza Mystica, it's stated that she protected Jun from Kirakishou while he was hiding from her in the N-Field and also managed to destroy Kirakishou's illusions using the sound of her violin.]]²* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Green hair and eyes.²%%* DefeatMeansFriendship²* GirlishPigtails: Spiral-shaped, which make her look even younger than she already does.²* HairDecorations: Always seen wearing a heart-shaped... doily?²%%* IdiotHair²* InstrumentOfMurder: Her weapon is a violin.²* LargeHam: Boasts about her skills every so often, but it's generally just an act.²* LetsGetDangerous: Despite her childish personality and immature behavior, she's '''very''' competent in battle.²* MeaningfulName: Kanaria means "Canary Bird".²%%* TheMole: Initially.²* MusicalAssassin: She uses her violin to employ wind-based attacks.²* OjouRinglets: Ironic, judging by her personality.²* ParasolOfPrettiness: She has a parasol to fit her self-styled elegant image. [[ParasolOfPain It can also dish out.]]²* ParasolParachute: Well, she ''tries'' to make it work...²* SmallNameBigEgo: Always claims to be the smartest maiden, but never seems to succeed in any of her plans.²* TooDumbToLive: Although she claims to be the smartest Rozen Maiden doll, none of her plans seem to work. [[spoiler:To round off the TooDumbToLive, she tried fighting four Rozen Maidens at once. Also, on the final episode of ''Träumend'', when Barasuishou destroys her violin, she stands still, not realizing she can use Suiseiseki's power.]]²* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Tamagoyaki, a kind of Japanese omelet.²* VerbalTic: "Kashira!" in the Japanese version and "Maybe" in the official English release of the manga.²** {{Lampshaded}} by Unwind Jun who believes her insistency on said verbal tic makes her sound very uncertain in everything she says. [[BerserkButton She does not take said comment very well]].²* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Kanaria's green hair makes her the only Rozen doll with an unusual hair color that [[MysticalWhiteHair isn't white]].²²!!'''Suiseiseki'''²[[quoteright:225:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/33745.jpg]]²²-->Voiced by: Creator/NatsukoKuwatani (JP), Creator/NanaMizuki (JP - drama CD), Creator/RebeccaForstadt (Geneon), Creator/BrittneyKarbowski (Sentai) (EN)²²Also known simply by her VerbalTic, [[MemeticMutation desu]], Suiseiseki is the third doll of the Rozen Maidens. Despite her bad attitude, she loves her sisters and doesn't want to fight them. Her weapon is her watering can and her artifical spirit is named Sui Dream.²-----²* AllLovingHero: She might not show it usually, but she's very compassionate about people and would like for everyone to just get along.²* AngstySurvivingTwin: [[spoiler:Before Souseiseki was brought BackFromTheDead, she was greatly affected by losing her twin sister. Once she gets her back, she doesn't want that Suigintou takes Souseiseki again.]]²* DreamWeaver: While all dolls are capable of entering people's dreams, this is her specialty. She's the one mainly responsible for helping Jun sort out his subconscious self.²* EvilLaugh: "HI HI HI HI! I found you, desu!"²* GreenThumb: Aside using plants to fight, she can make people's heart trees grow with the water of her watering can.²* HatesBeingAlone: Believe it or not, Suiseiseki's mayor fear is being without her sisters, specially Souseiseki. Shinku even said that Suiseiseki is the one most scared of loneliness.²* TheHeart: She's the first one to try and convince the other dolls that the whole Alice Game is a worthless endeavour.²* HeroicSacrifice: In the anime, [[spoiler:she tries to take on Barasuishou herself to give Kanaria a chance to escape. Sadly, this turns into a SenselessSacrifice when Kanaria decides to keep on fighting. They both end up dead because of it. The manga has another one, more successful one in which she sacrifices her own Roza Mystica to revive Souseiseki fully and banish Kirakishou from her body. She gets better in both of these cases, however..]].²* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Downplayed. In her introductory episodes, she's scared of humans and refuses to give her ring to one. She makes a contract with Jun out of necessity.²* ImagineSpot: In ''Tale'' chapter 36, she has one of those after reading a shoujo manga... so we get to see Suiseiseki wearing a school uniform receiving a love confession from a boy (who strangely looks like Jun).²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's haughty, naughty and mischievous, but also loving, caring and protective of her sisters.²* KnightTemplarBigBrother: Though she loves all her sisters dearly, Souseiseki's well being will always be her priority [[spoiler:going as far of defending Kirakishou of Shinku and Suigintou because of Souseiseki's body being in the line. This is however justified in that she was merely trying to buy time in order to get the Unwound Jun to make a contract with Souseiseki's ring in order to forcefully eject Kirakishou from her body.]]²* LetsGetDangerous: She doesn't like fighting, and in fact wants no part of the Alice Game, but push her hard enough (or worse, threaten Souseiseki)...²%%* LittleGirlsKickShins²* TheMcCoy: She refuses to fight the Alice Game because she cares too much about her sisters.²* MeaningfulName: Suiseiseki means "Jade Star" in Japanese.²* PluckyGirl: She is even willing to go through hell and back for her sisters.²* PolarOppositeTwins: With Souseiseki.²* ThePrankster: Loves putting pranks to Jun and Hinaichigo.²* RapunzelHair: Granted, she IS a doll, but her hair ''still reaches the floor''!²* RedOniBlueOni: The very, ''very'' emotional type and Red to Souseiseki's Blue.²%%* RegalRinglets²* ScrewySquirrel: She loves to pull pranks on Hinaichigo and sometimes Jun if she gets the chance, even if she often gets herself into trouble because of it.²* SharedUnusualTrait: Her right eye is red, while her left eye is green. Souseiseki has the same eye colors but reversed. ²* SympathyForTheDevil: [[spoiler:She felt sad for the twin doll sisters Judica and Madulia, because after Judica grow bigger because of the "[[Literature/AliceInWonderland Drink Me potion]]", they can't return to be one again. Just like Suiseiseki herself and Souseiseki.]]²* TechnicalPacifist: She certainly isn't afraid of dishing out violence should the need arise, but given her rather vocal opposition to the Alice Game, she merely does it to protect her sisters and never with the intention of actually killing anyone.²* ThemeTwinNaming: She and Souseiseki are named after gems.²* TinyTyrannicalGirl: She can be worse than Shinku when she demands something, and isn't afraid to get physical to get what she wants.²* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Girly Girl to Souseiseki's Tomboy.²%%* TheTrickster²* {{Tsundere}}: She's haughty and loves to pull pranks on her sisters, but she really loves them and will do anything to protect them. Also despite her bad attitude towards Jun, she still has a hidden crush on him.²* TsurimeEyes: Since she has a strong personality when she isn't being a coward, she fittingly has those.²* VerbalTic: Desu, of course. Though in Japanese it's a copula that's just a regular part of polite speech, she uses it ''constantly'', to the point that it became memetic.²* WellExcuseMePrincess: Her relationship with Jun borders on this. She calls him a chibi and looks down on him for being a {{Hikikomori}}, demanding him to do better.²²!!'''Souseiseki'''²[[quoteright:225:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/77219.jpg]]²²-->Voiced by: Creator/RikaMorinaga (JP), Creator/JulieAnnTaylor (Geneon), Kara Greenberg (Sentai) (EN)²²The fourth doll of the Rozen Maidens, Souseiseki is the calmest and most duty-bound of the dolls. Because of her sense of duty, she believes that becoming Alice is her obligation. Souseiseki's weapon is [[ShearMenace a pair of gardening scissors]], and her artificial spirit is named Lempicka.²-----²* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:In the manga. And then back to the death again.]]²* {{BFS}}: Her [[ShearMenace scissors]], which she uses as if they were a sword, are almost her size. Justified because she's a two-foot doll.²* {{Bifauxnen}}: Many who watched the series initally mistook her for a boy.²* BigSisterInstinct: {{Inverted}} as she's the younger sister, but just as Suiseiseki is protective of her, Souseiseki is also very occupied with her twin's well-being.²* {{Bokukko}}: She uses the male pronoun "boku" to refer to herself.²* BoyishShortHair: Sidetail variant, though they are on the short side.²* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler:Suffers of this after Kirakishou uses her body as a LivingBodysuit.]]²* TheDutifulDaughter: Unlike her twin Suiseiseki who loves her sisters enough to not want to be Alice just to please Rozen, Souseiseki just wants to become Alice because she considers it her duty towards Rozen.²* FightingFromTheInside: [[spoiler:After Unwind!Jun makes a contract on her ring, she regains conscience and starts struggling for control over her body, but was needed the help of Suiseiseki to really free her.]]²* FourIsDeath: [[spoiler:Guess who the first Rozen Maiden to die was?]]²* InnocentInnuendo: [[spoiler:She calls herself Jun's slave after Unwind!Jun forms an accidental contract with her.]] She can't see why Jun gets all uncomfortable with it, since she doesn't know [[MadeASlave the]] [[SexSlave implications]].²-->'''Souseiseki:''' (''to Adult Jun'') I remember...your fingers.

She has no speaking parts in the original anime. Her abilities include crystals and white vines.²----²* AdaptationDyeJob: Alternates between white and light pink in the manga by itself, but in the anime, she was given the same grayish color as Barasuishou. In the new 2013 anime, she becomes a strawberry blonde.²* AndIMustScream: From the moment of her creation, Kirakishou was kept inside the N-Field as a disembodied spectre, unable to leave due to not having a physical body. The only way she can make contact with the outside world is through influencing human minds with her powers and using them as a catalyst to reach her sisters.²* AnimalMotifs: She behaves like a spider, using her vines as spider webs to trap the other dolls and to crawl over them.²* AscendedExtra: The first ''Rozen Maiden'' manga introduces her and her backstory, but she's given more focus in ''Rozen Maiden Tales'' where she's the main villain. Also see ContinuityCameo.²* AxCrazy: If the way she [[spoiler:[[CruelAndUnusualDeath killed Hinaichigo]]]] is any indication...²* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:Kirakishou gets her own doll body in the end and gets to be with the other sisters, which is what she wanted all along.]]²* BerserkButton: Never remind her that Rozen didn't give her a body, or even worse, call her an fading illusion.²* BigBad: The main antagonist of the series.²%%* BrokenBird: Due to being forced to GoMadFromTheIsolation. ²* ContinuityCameo: She shows up briefly (read: for nine seconds) at the end of Träumend, but other than that, she has no role in the original anime.²* CreepyDoll: Oh boy, is she ''ever''.

Her eye literally ''is'' a flower, instead of being a flower-shaped Eyepatch.²* FauxAffablyEvil: She ''always'' speaks in a nice polite tone which contrast her insane behavior.²* ForcefulKiss: Kirakishou wanted to make a contract with Adult Jun, but her ring was created from her saliva and was inside her mouth. So she tried to make him kiss her mouth to kiss her ring; thank you Suiseiseki for stopping her.²* FreudianExcuse: Unlike the other dolls, she was created with no physical body, and was thereby forced to live out her life alone in the N-field, eventually driving her insane out of an intense wish to gain a physical body and a lack of social experience with other dolls and humans.²%%* GirlishPigtails²* GoMadFromTheIsolation: Spending her entire life inside the N-field with little to no contact with the other dolls and humans has some really disturbing effects.²* HellishPupils: In the anime of ''Tales''. ²* HumanResources: [[spoiler:Her powers require a lot of energy so [[PeopleFarm she's gathering all current and old doll masters into her seed bed to drain energy out of them]].]]²* ImAHumanitarian: Well, the closest thing towards the dolls as you can get.²* InSeriesNickname: Adult Jun calls her "Yuki" since it's the only kanji of her name he can read.²* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Despite all the horrible things she did, she ultimately gets a happy ending with her sisters and does not receive any consequences for her actions.]]²* KissOfDeath: Implanted her vines inside [[spoiler:Hinaichigo]] through her mouth.²* LecherousLicking: Licked Adult Jun's finger right before the aforementioned ForcefulKiss in a way that very closely (and deliberately) resembles... well... use your imagination. Combined with SpitTrailKiss just for extra RuleOfCreepy. What she said right before that doesn't exactly help.²-->'''Kirakishou''': "Master... I want you."²* LightIsNotGood: She has the brightest colour scheme and uses sparkling crystals... yet she's completely insane and evil to the core.²* LivingDollCollector: [[spoiler:In an odd case of a doll collecting humans as if they were the dolls.]]²* LoveHungry: She really wants to be loved and accepted by her sisters and master, but her ways to get love make [[Literature/{{Coraline}} The Other Mother's]] come to mind.²* LoveMakesYouEvil [[LoveMakesYouCrazy And Crazy]]: Even more so than Suigintou.²%%* TheManBehindTheMan²%%* ManipulativeBitch²* MasterOfIllusion: Her crystals can show illusions on its surface, like mirrors, even her N-Field is a illusion of the real world; but [[UncannyValley as she doesn't truly know the world except for what she sees on mirrors, her illusion feels odd.]]²* MeaningfulName: Kirakishou means "Sparkling Snowdrop Crystal".²* TheMentallyDisturbed: Already mentioned above, but Kirakishou shows some very severe (and understandable) symptoms of mental instability. She's ruthlessly violent, appears to have multiple personalities, suffers from delusions and at times distributes erratic and sociopathic behaviour. ²%%* MinidressOfPower: ²* MoreThanMindControl: ²** [[spoiler:Over Adult Jun. The white vines over him and his room show how much Kirakishou is influencing him.]]²** [[spoiler:Also over Megu as she promised her she'll consume her life and give her death, something Suigintou is now doubtful to do.]]²* MysticalWhiteHair: Not only is she a doll brought to life, she's more special than the other Rozen Maidens.²* NotGoodWithRejection: When people deny her what she wants, she goes ballistic.²* TheOphelia: Constantly surrounded by white roses, her hair is super long and flowing, she's dressed all in white, and her mind is not all there.²* PeoplePuppets: She can manipulate people that she has encased in her crystal.²* PureIsNotGood: Rozen created her to represent the soul itself. Kirakishou turned to be insane.²* RapunzelHair: Her hair is generally portrayed as reaching ''way'' beyond her butt.²* SoftSpokenSadist: She talks politely and never raises the tone of her cute sweet voice, not even when trying to destroy her sisters.²* SomethingAboutARose: Probably the most profound example amongs the dolls, as she actually has a rose growing out of her right eye socket, which also happens to be her weapon to add in the mix.²* StepfordSmiler: A very much Type C. To expand, until very recently, she spent her entire life inside the N-field with little to no contact with the others [[GoMadFromTheIsolation which drove her mad]], but at the same time she has this... ''''cute'''' demeanor that '''heavily''' contrast with her actions, whatsoever, she '''never''' breaks character, even when crying [[TranquilFury or when she's furious]].²* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Her only eye.²* TermsOfEndangerment: She calls all of her older sisters "OneeSama", either as a mocking or as a twisted way to act like the youngest sister she is, probably the former, especially Suigintou.²* TranquilFury: When [[{{Jerkass}} Suigintou]] [[BullyingTheDragon insults her]] she says "Please don't say such mean thing to me" before trying to kill her.²* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:When Adult Jun says, in no uncertain terms, that he is not her master and wants nothing to do with her at all, she breaks down into tears, her body starts falling apart, and her once stoic demeanor is reduced to hysterical screaming. [[NotQuiteDead She gets better, though]].]] ²* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Sometimes it's blonde, sometimes it's light pink or actually white, but either way she's evil and manipulative to the very end.²* WomanInWhite: Wears a white ensemble supposed to represent her purity, but it more fittingly [[spoiler:represents death.]]²* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: All the evil actions she takes are out of a desperate need to be loved, and with her having been isolated in the N-field her entire life, it's not surprising why she would want it so much.²* {{Yandere}}: ²-->'''Kirakishou:''' (''To Adult Jun'') "You can choose anyone you want, as long as you choose me at the end."²* YoungestChildWins:²** Later explained that Rozen actually crafted Kirakishou without a body for that reason, wondering if leaving her as a disembodied spirit would grant her superiority over the other Rozen Maidens and achieve greater perfection. And indeed she did; Kirakishou won the SuperpowerLottery as she, inside the N-Field, is almost omnipresent, has more power than her sisters (as she's starting to collect more "masters") and can influence the real world to her advantage.²** [[spoiler: Nearly happens at the climax of the manga.
