Context Characters / TheInfiniteLoopsTheOriginalSeven

Go To

1The first Loopers to ever exist, as well as their Anchors, laid out in Innortal's Loops. The Original Seven, the first Anchors, are known by every Looper as the most powerful fighters in the Infinite Loops, save for maybe a few other Loopers, and the Admins themselves.²²[[foldercontrol]]²!Anchors²[[folder: The Original Seven]]²-> The first known Anchors, these seven have by far the most experience and power of all the Loopers, and are respected by most Loopers.²²!! Tropes the group as a whole share:²* AlwaysABiggerFish: With the exception of [[TheOmnipotent the Admins]] (and that’s debatable at times), they ''are'' the bigger fish.²* BlueAndOrangeMorality: For a long time (when Innortal's loops were the only canon) the Original Seven and others from their loops took to being the most [[TheHedonist hedonistic assholes]] they could be, all for the sake of relieving their boredom. They've since been [[CharacterRerailment rerailed]] into resembling their canon selves again, thanks to the efforts of Yggdrasil.²* DespairEventHorizon: It happened back when none of them knew the context behind the loops, and when the loops were strict enough to reset if the plot went OffTheRails. Thankfully, the [[Manga/AhMyGoddess Goddesses]] eventually showed up to save them from this.²* TheDreaded: Downplayed - while most of the other Loopers aren't scared of them, (except Lina), the MLEs or villainous Loopers (except for Billy), are almost uniformly utterly terrified of what they're capable of when they're feeling motivated. ²* OutOfFocus: Tend not to get too many Loops written about them because they are so powerful. At the same time, they already have much of their story told by Innortal, BroadStrokes or otherwise.²* PhysicalGod: Thanks to living far longer than any other loopers, it's needless to say they are all among the most powerful loopers in existence. The only thing keeping them from truly ascending to Godhood (or Adminhood) is the fact that it would likely destroy their loop – they’ve grown so strong they have to consciously stop themselves from growing much stronger, breaking the limit on how strong non-Admins can be, and Ascending automatically.²* StoryBreakerPower: Though the same holds true for all loopers, the original seven stand out simply because of how obscenely powerful they are.²* TimeAbyss: These guys are ancient by [[TimeAbyss Looper]] Standards.²* WhoWatchesTheWatchmen: Brought up during a series of snippets where Batman is shown creating Anti-Seven plans. The O7, while feeling both amused and insulted by the effort, comment that they watch each other and are each other's counters. ²* TheWorfEffect: Zigzagged: When the O7 fight other Loopers, they often hold back and fight WeakButSkilled to make things interesting, which can lead to them losing (Naruto was subject to a RingOut by [[Manga/AttackOnTitan Mikasa]] weaponizing {{Tsundere}}, and Ranma has lost to [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Maito Gai/Might Guy]] and [[WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} Lie Ren]] in the past (though he beat them more often than he lost). And it's clear that their sheer power does not mean they are immune to being [[DidntSeeThatComing caught by surprise]]. When they decide it’s time to stop holding back, though... expect their enemies to receive a OneHitKill a la [[Manga/OnePunchMan Saitama]].²²!! Ranma Saotome (01)²-> Anchor of the ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' loops. Though all the original seven's universes came online at about roughly the same time, Ranma is often considered by others to be the first looper to come online ''ever''. Whether this is true or not, no one knows for sure. The characters often assume such because, thanks to his baseline, Ranma didn't have much choice but to spend a ''lot'' of his early loop life training, and as such one can argue he's one of the, if not ''the'', single most powerful looper in the entire Infinite Loops canon, and because of that people could only assume he achieved it through ''many'' years even by original looper standards. He tends to keep a positive outlook on the loops despite his baseline and possibly living longer than any other looper, and is always interested in seeing what new loops end up coming online.²²* TheAce: Possibly being the oldest looper in existence, there is nearly no reality he doesn't know about and no context he doesn't have.²* TheDreaded: To Dio, due to getting a favor called in and having a Revenge Loop in the Bleach verse on the Vampire. In other words, it didn't end until Ranma '''decided''' it ended. The particular details were never given, but there's rumors what he did was bad enough that he got sent to Eiken the loop afterwards.²* MasterOfAll: He's not the ''best'' at any particular area of combat (Harry and Lina are better at magic, there are Loopers with more outright raw power) but he tends to be second- or third-best at ''everything''. This adds up. It also leads him to be the hardest member of the 07 for Batman to formulate a counter strategy to. ²* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: In a Fused Loop where Valtor wants to kill Ranma to take Akane as his wife.²* TheOlderImmortal: Is hypothesized to be the first looper ''ever''. He certainly has the power levels to prove it.²* TimeAbyss: If you believe Ranma was the first looper ever, then he stands out from the rest of the loopers who become this eventually due to the loops.²* WorldsBestWarrior: He isn't the strongest in terms of raw power, but he's (probably) the oldest Looper, comes from a world focused on training and skill, and is on par power-wise (at the very least) with an early Looping Super Saiyan 4 Goku.²²!! Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon (05)²-> The Anchor of the Sailor Moon Loops, Usagi is generally considered the quintessential magical girl.²²* CoolBigSis: Wants to be this for all Loopers.²* TheDitz: She was considered this by the other O7 because she believed Nabiki when she first started Looping. She's grown out of it, but still acts like she is at times.²* TheMedic: Out of all the Original Seven Anchors, she’s arguably the one shown in combat the least, instead preferring to either watch or heal. [[CombatMedic But given that she’s an O7 member, don’t let this make you think she isn’t capable of destroying just about anybody.]]²* OddFriendship: She has one with the ''[[TabletopGame/Warhammer40000 God-Emperor of Mankind]]'', of all people. While the two are very different, both as people and in their origins, they seem to get along well.²* WorldHealingWave: Her command over the healing powers of the silver crystal is unparalleled. She's once dispelled the curse of hatred that Demise cast over the Zelda Loops, allowing the looping versions of Ganondorf and Vaati to finally exist outside and resist its influence in later Loops.²²!! Naruto Uzumaki (03)²-> The anchor of the Naruto loops, Naruto come online shortly after Harry did. Though his early loop actions are a tad bit ''questionable'', he has more or less sorted it out and became a pretty decent looper in his own right.²²* ButtMonkey: Comes partly with living in the same loop as [[SanitySlippage Sak]][[ForTheEvulz ura]]. Once she started to go through rehabilitation, he's mostly escaped this status... ''mostly''.²** He's currently engaged in a prank war against Sailor Neptune. He's ''losing''.²* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: While other Loopers intellectually know that he's way above their power level, that doesn't stop them from thinking he's an idiot when his pranks either seem or actually do go awry. But with that said, never think for even a second that he isn't more than capable of backing up his reputation [[BewareTheSillyOnes if he feels like it]].²* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Accidentally responsible for [[spoiler:worsening Helia's Setsuna Syndrome]].²* NoodleIncident: Apparently kicks [[WesternAnimation/WinxClub Valtor, Darkar and the Wizards of the Black Circle]] into low orbit when they destroy his attempts at ramen. It can only be assumed that it was really good ramen, or an excuse to let loose against villains.²* PapaWolf: If you value your life, don't hurt Himawari or Boruto.²* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Even after an unfathomable amount of time and several bouts of SanitySlippage, Naruto still loves his ramen.²* TranquilFury: When Sakura carried out an experiment on the Hyuuga clan to see if they could awaken the Rinnegan that left all of them dead or suffering a FateWorseThanDeath, Naruto's first words after he finds out and returns from [[NotEnoughToBury trying to find what's left of Hinata]] are...²--> "Demonic Sage Art: Giant Galactic Rasenshuriken." ²* UnstoppableRage: When he let the Baseline run out in full for the 4th Shinobi World War, he found out [[spoiler:Obito]] was behind his parents dying, the War starting, and numerous other events. He was... displeased, to say the least.²²!!Kurama the Nine Tailed Fox (03)²->Co-Anchor to Naruto, many forget about him or think of him as part of Naruto's powers. Most of his bodies come from Naruto's abilities.²²* OutOfFocus: When you're constantly overlooked but a member of this kind of group, it's bad.²* TheWorfEffect: Zigzagged and lampshaded: He tied in a fight with Godzilla, and is worried about it afterwards. He and Naruto both acknowledge that he was holding back a lot, but he decides that it’s a sign to start training again.²²!! Harry Potter (02)²-> The anchor of the Harry Potter loops, Harry has the most experience with fused loops. ²²* BotheringByTheBook: He's gotten very skilled at this. It comes in handy dealing with Umbridge.²* EvilOverlord: Dabbled in it, every now and then. One such instance was when Hermoine and Ron started Looping.²* AMindIsATerribleThingToRead: It's not a good idea to use Legilimency on Harry anymore. The fragment of Tom Riddle in his head became Harry's equivalent to Old Man Zangetsu after a ''Bleach'' loop, and then there's his bloodthirsty Inner Hollow...²* TakeOverTheWorld: Happens whenever he gets sorted into Hufflepuff. Even he has no idea how.²²!! Shinji Ikari (04)²-> The anchor of the Evangelion Loops, it was an early attempt to end the Loops that he tried that caused the first meeting of most of the Original Seven in a Hogwarts Fused Loop.²²* ADayInTheLimelight: ''[[ The First Crash]]'' is one for him and his loopers...²* ADeathInTheLimelight: [[SubvertedTrope ...chronicling their suicide attempt and the subsequent loop crash.]]²* ArbitrarySkepticism: Does not believe Revan exists as a looper. ²* HeroesWantRedheads: ''The First Crash'' implied that he is (or was) in a relationship with Asuka -and Rei and Kaworu- and the four pilots have been together for a ''long'' time.²* KnightInSourArmor: Shinji's generally a hero, sure, but he's also the most pessimistic of the original seven. In the end, however, he will try to do what he thinks is right – even if it involves getting Asuka and Kaoru to lay off of his father.²-->'''Shinji''': Someone can only face up to life when life isn’t ''constantly stomping on his face.''²* MrViceGuy: For all his positives and sympathetic nature, there's little doubt that Shinji is the meanest member of the original seven when you get on his bad side. It helps that his most morally questionable antics are [[PayEvilUntoEvil aimed squarely at his utter]] {{Jerkass}} [[AbusiveParents of a father]].²* PrecisionFStrike: Uses one when he see a looping Gendo.²* SpannerInTheWorks: Due to his Looping self actually having a spine, he tends to be one for his old man.²* ThisIsGonnaSuck: His reaction to seeing Pinkiel, the Angel of Parties.²* UnstoppableRage: Succumbs to a bought of this when it's revealed that his father is looping, and in the building. He was only broken from this when Gendo asserted that Shinji wasn't his son, and that Billy (the MLE) was.²** Notably, he had three other loopers (Toph, Ganondorf and Applejack) and an Anchor (Twilight) trying to [[CallBack hold him back... ]] and they were losing ground.²** It is also implied that Naruto tried to stop him as well. Emphasis on "Tried": Shinji apparently sent him to Andromeda the long way. And by "long way" we mean "chucked him in that general direction very hard".²²!! Ichigo Kurosaki (07)²-> The anchor of the Bleach loops, Ichigo's status among the original seven is often debated. Generally, many agree that he was the last of the original seven to come online. Despite his late status, that doesn't stop him from being just as powerful then the rest of the group.²²* OnlySaneMan: Of the original seven, he's often portrayed as more 'down to earth' in comparison to the others. Admittedly, the bar isn't really set that high.²* TimeAbyss: Ichigo's Loops sometimes go until his soul dies. Since he's so powerful his soul doesn't die, those Loops go to the Heat Death of the Universe (he later admits this may have been an exaggeration, but he at least stayed around long enough for Earth's sun to die).²²!! Lina Inverse (06)²-> The Anchor of the Slayers loops, Lina's propensity for blowing up everything around her with destructive magic spells has not exactly given her a good reputation. More than a few loopers view her like ordinary people would view a natural disaster.²²* FlatCharacter: For a time, Lina's sole job as a looper was to Dragon Slave something whenever she appears.²** HiddenDepths: It's stated later on, however, that this was at least partially an act to amuse herself and scare people. She admits that she let it get out of hand, however. Also, she was willing to let her friends handle a fight and not interfere herself, despite being a bit of a BloodKnight.²* StuffBlowingUp: In every single Loop she ends up in, she ''has'' to test and see if the Dragon Slave still works. Save for safe-mode universes like Eiken, it always has. She also seems to have finally figured that out and stopped doing it so much. ²²[[/folder]]²²!!'''Loopers''':²²[[folder:The Original Seven - Ranmaverse]]²!!Nabiki Tendo²->One of the Tendo sisters, and Ranma's apprentice.²²* TheApprentice: Ranma took her on as his apprentice, and consequently she's the most powerful being in the Ranma loops aside from Ranma himself.²* CharacterDevelopment: Characters from Nerima who have just started looping are universally shocked to discover that not only is she not vindictive and greedy, but is even willing to buy things for people with her own money.²* TookALevelInBadass: As a result of her apprenticeship.²* TookALevelInKindness: Mellowed out quite a bit after she began looping, and has entirely given up on the greed that used to define her character.²²!!Tatewaki Kuno²->Formerly one of Ranma's main rivals, he eventually became much saner and started Looping. ²²!!Akane Tendo²->Ranma's bethrothed, the loops have led to an... interesting situation for the two.²* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Her sisters have a habit of mastering the things Ranma teaches them faster than she does.²* {{Tsundere}}: Defied! She's actually rather comfortable with Ranma nowadays.²²!!Other identified Loopers²->Kasumi Tendo, Shampoo, Ukyou Kuonji, Kodachi Kuno, and Herb. ²²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:The Original Seven - Narutoverse]]²!! Sakura Haruno²-> The namer of the dreaded 'Sakura Syndrome' herself, Sakura spent a lot of her early looping life being rather... morally ambiguous, for lack of a better term. Having been broken by the loops, she spent a lot of her early life ''relieving'' herself, again, for lack of a better term, before she eventually turned to being a MadScientist. Though she is quite possibly one of the most infamous loopers in the loops canon, and a number of loopers are utterly terrified of her to MLE levels, she's frequently shown to regret a lot of her early loop actions, and has recently gone through rehabilitation because of it.²²* AdultFear: Being a former sociopath, Sakura knows that she can go off the rails, and is utterly terrified of doing it anywhere near her daughter Sarada.²* TheAtoner: For her early loop actions. Though she still has relapses, she ''is'' trying to better herself after all she's done, even if it isn't readily apparent.²* BeyondTheImpossible: One of the few loopers who knows how to make effects and alter things physically that last past a single loop iteration (psychological damage can carry from loop to loop by itself).²* TheDreaded: Being the namer of 'Sakura Syndrome', it's understandable that a ''lot'' of loopers are terrified of her. A bit of an odd case though, as she ''is'' trying to break the image somewhat. That said, piss her off, and she ''will'' show you why most loopers are utterly terrified of her.²* ItsAllAboutMe: Back when she was at her worst, Sakura could not comprehend why Naruto and Sasuke (both teetering on the edge of sanity themselves) objected to the things she did. Even when they took an active hand in stopping her, she merely accepted it as "they're trying to ruin my fun."²* MadScientist: Eventually becomes one after she stopped her ''[[{{Dominatrix}} other]]'' most common way of ''enjoying'' the loops. For example, she triggered a Borg outbreak in Konoha. Hinata became its HiveQueen; ''[[ShrinkingViolet Hinata]]''.²* SanitySlippage: There's a ''reason'' she has a syndrome named after her, after all. That said, she's trying to get better, and hopes that other loopers will eventually acknowledge this fact.²* SanityStrengthening: She's mostly recovered from her Sakura Syndrome.²* TheSociopath: Was this for a while, thanks to being broken by the loops. Has been trying to break away from this though after a while, and while she's made good strides towards that, she still has occasional relapses.²²!!Sasuke Uchiha²-> Naruto's rival and generally more sane than he was pre loop. Or at least, not trying to kill Naruto all the time.²²* BigBrotherInstinct: Has it for Blake Belladonna of all people. Also for Itachi, for obvious reasons.²* GoodParents: In light of his absence in canon, Sasuke has worked to be a better father to Sarada.²* HairTriggerTemper: Minor insults from Naruto are apparently sometimes enough to make him use Amaterasu - though with that said, neither he nor Naruto seemed all that concerned about it.²* OnlySaneMan: One of the few loopers affected by the [[Anime/CardfightVanguard Яeverse The Loops storyline]] to not be corrupted, along with Anakin Skywalker and Bass.²* TookALevelInKindness: This version of Sasuke acts like a mix of his pre-betrayal and Road to Ninja selves, a far cry in decency from even his post HeelFaceTurn canon self.²²!!Hinata Hyuga²-> Naruto's eventual wife, the ambiguity of their relationship pre-finale was a huge focus for her character. ²²* ActionGirl: Almost as old as Naruto, and proportionally awesome.²** ActionMom: Two children, kicks ass.²* MagicalEye: One of the world's foremost experts in magical eyes, the other being Sasuke.²* OfficialCouple: With Naruto.²* {{Yandere}}: She was second only to Sakura in terms of insanity. But while Sakura focused on the multiverse, Hinata focused on Naruto.²²!!Kakashi Hatake²->Leader of Team Seven, he was brought online by The Crash, and was subsequently traumatized by the Looping Sakura Haruno. He's mostly gotten over it since them. ²²* ButtMonkey: Nonlooping Kakashis tended to be subject at outlandish but nightmarish pranks at the hands of his students. Eventually, one of them Awoke...²* BreakTheBadass: Driven into extreme trauma by Sakura (the exact reasons are... unknown. Naruto eventually asked Sakura, and immediately decided INeedAFreakingDrink). He had to spend a loop in Equestria just so that he wouldn't shut down at the sight of the color pink.²²!!Ino Yamanaka²->Member of Team Eight, and a master of mind-controlling ninjutsu.²²* GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul: Placed ''herself'' under several hypnotic suggestions to prevent some of the... more questionable acts the Loopers did in the early days.²* LampshadeHanging: Notices that most of the O7 Loopers went "at least a little mad" due to time resetting and rendering what they did moot. She notes that Sakura was just notable in how bad the Loops got to her and how long it lasted.²²!!Neji Hyuuga²-> Member of Team Gai, cousin to Hinata, and generally possesses rather horrible luck at times.²²* ThatsGottaHurt: An unAwake Neji once enraged [[Manga/AttackOnTitan Mikasa Uzumaki]] after he nearly killed Hyuuga Eren. We aren't shown what happens afterwards, but judging from Naruto's reaction, it wasn't pretty.²²!!Gaara²->Ninja of Suna, and the Fifth Kazekage.²²* TheComicallySerious: Even when subscribing to Maito Gai's way of life, Gaara does not drop his usual deadpan.²* RunningGag: Looping Gaara became a fan of Icha Icha.²²!!Other identified Loopers²->Kiba Inuzuka, Akamaru, Shino Aburame, Shikamaru Nara, Choji Akimichi, Tenten, Rock Lee, Iruka Umino, Temari, Kankuro, Itachi Uchiha, Tsunade, Jiraiya, Maito Gai, Hiruzen Sarutobi, and Haku. ²²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:The Original Seven - Potterverse]]²!!Hermione Granger²²* {{Fangirl}}: For the Doctor, if Harry's reaction to seeing him teaching at Hogwarts was any indication.²* HappilyMarried: To Ron.²²!!Ron Weasley²²* TheChessmaster: The Original player of chess. Ron can, without a doubt, beat anyone in the multiverse. Anyone.²* HappilyMarried: To Hermione.²²!!Albus Dumbledore²²* TheAtoner: For his tendency to go '[[RonTheDeathEater Manipulative old coot]]' on Harry as a non-Looper. And a bit as an early looper (though Harry hadn't realized he was looping at the time).²* CoolOldGuy: Instead of admonishing Harry over his treatment of Umbridge in the Loops, he instead asked Harry if he had any photos. ²* HeelFaceTurn: From non-looping enemy to looping ally of Harry.²* {{Railroading}}: Had a nasty case of Setsuna Syndrome for a while, before he met Dr. Light.²²!!Luna Lovegood²²* CloudCuckooLander: She resembles her younger self more than she does her adult self here.²* TheDreaded: PlayedForLaughs: In a snippet, it’s revealed that Harry's worst fear (thanks to a boggart) is that she might have some of his, Ron’s, and Hermione’s more... '''embarrassing...''' moments in scrapbooks that she keeps in her Pocket.²²!!Neville Longbottom²²* OutOfFocus: Compared to the other Loopers, yeah. ²* PhysicalGod: In a bar snippet, he apparently created a moon just for other Loopers to bash it around. ²²!!Ginny Weasley²²* HappilyMarried: To Harry.²* OutOfFocus: Was obscured by Mythos hackers from memory, effectively vanishing her from the world for several thousand Loops. Harry was not happy when he found out.²²!!Draco Malfoy²²* ButtMonkey: Bad things tend to happen to this guy, a lot. Given what he's like even when Awake, he has it coming.²* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Started looping as a vaguely psychopathic asshole who killed nuisances and people he didn't like. Vanished from the record for a while and resurfaced as a snarky, annoying git who kept up the assholeness for the sake of appearances.²* TokenEvilTeammate: Is perfectly willing to try and kill someone for annoying him. It backfired when he tried it on Chrysalis.²* UpperClassTwit: Looping has done nothing to shake this.²²!!Dobby²²!!Hedwig²²!!Rubeus Hagrid²-> Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts, and Harry's first real friend, having told him of his heritage. ²²* SizeShifter: He gained this ability as a result of a Fused Loop with the Marvel Universe, having replaced Ant-Man. ²²!!Fred and George Weasley ²-> Twin Pranksters. ²²!!Sirius Black²²* RefugeInAudacity: One of his more memorable stunts after he started Looping was to show up to a Death Eater meeting and claim he "[[BlatantLies was Voldermort's second in command, remember?]]" ([[RealityEnsues It apparently took him several tries to find a Voldemort who didn't kill him on sight, though]]).²²!!Lucius Malfoy²-> Draco's father, he started Looping due to the influence of his one off daughter Hayate.²²* LateToTheParty: For context, his first loop was before the Ponies started Looping, easily billions of years before his second loop.²²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:The Original Seven - Neon Genesis Evangelion]]²!! Identified Loopers²->Rei Ayanami, Asuka Langley Sohryu, Kaworu Nagisa, Pen Pen, sisters Rei, Iti, Kei and Shion Ayanami (Alternate versions of Rei from ''Nobody Dies''), Gendo Ikari, Misato Katsuragi and Kensuke Aida²²!!Rei Ayanami²²* ReiAyanamiExpy: Lampshaded. Apparently the Universe thought it was funny that Rei had an army of clones, and spread them across the universe. ²* VerbalTic: speaks in an overtly flat, formal manner. Notably, she does this of her own accord.²²!!Asuka Langley Sohryu²²* {{Tsundere}}: the prototypical Tsundere, albeit one who asserts that she has a very good reason for it, i.e. her traumatic life.²* TrueCompanions: After Gendo starts Looping, and Shinji manages to convince her and Kaoru to stop attacking him, she tells him that if he hurts Shinji, or anyone else, “[[PunctuatedForEmphasis All. Bets. Are. Off.]]”²²!!Kaoru Nagisa²²* HumanoidAbomination: The Seventeenth Angel. Decent guy, and very much the most grounded, sane, and empathetic looper in Tokyo Three.²* NiceGuy: Natch. See above.²²!!Pen Pen²²* TalkingAnimal: A natural consequence of being a looping penguin.²* EverythingsBetterWithPenguins: Yes. It is.²²!!The Ree²²* CanonForeigner: The oldest example in the loops. The Ree aren't from baseline Evangelion, but rather are from [[Fanfic/NobodyDies a variant]] that let them loop... somehow.²* TheDreaded: Everyone is afraid of them, especially for their trademarked noise. No one knows- "Heeeeeyyyy".²* RecursiveFanfiction: They're from Fanfic/NobodyDies. They were one of the first cases of a fanmade character beginning to loop.²²!!Gendo Ikari ²²* [[GoMadFromTheRevelation Go Loopy From The Revelation]]: Gendo, rather than most loopers, was accidentally activated by the mind crushingly stupid MLE, Billy.²* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Well... friend is stretching it. No one, barring loopers activated after him and the ponies, like him. In fact, many of the older loopers have attacked him on sight. This includes his fellow Eva Loopers.²** After he starts to slip towards the DespairEventHorizon due to this treatment, however, Shinji confronts the other Loopers and gets them to start backing down. ²* TheWoobie: His wife is dead, his son hates him (initially, at least), and a good deal of the multiverse’s Loopers like him about as much as Shinji does. Gendo isn't exactly in a good place.²** IronWoobie: Despite this though, Gendo still, through force of will alone, cows a gigantic chunk of the multiverse.²* UnexpectedCharacter: The idea of Gendo Looping was inconceivable for many reasons. Other than the fact that he's one of the most hated men in the multiverse, the Eva universe is one of the seven oldest Looping universes. Their Awakening rate had slowed down significantly, and a new looper, let alone Gendo of all people, was highly unlikely as a result. Then Billy came along, and that was the end of that.²²!!Misato Katsuragi:²²* MajorlyAwesome: What exactly is the first thing Major Katsuragi does when she travels back in time? Marches right into Gendo's office and tries to assassinate him for all the hell he put her friends and wards through. She would have succeeded as well if Gendo hadn't been a Jedi.²* DropTheHammer: her primary weapon is a grenade launcher hammer combo. She's awesome.²²!!Kensuke Aida:²²* {{Otaku}}: duh.²²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:The Original Seven - Sailor Moon]]²!! Identified Loopers²->Ami Mizuno/Sailor Mercury, Rei Hino/Sailor Mars, Makoto Kino/Sailor Jupiter, Minako Aino/Sailor Venus, Michiru Kaioh/Sailor Neptune, Haruka Tenou/Sailor Uranus, Hotaru Tomoe/Sailor Saturn, Mamoru Chiba/Tuxedo Mask, Chibi-Usa/Sailor Chibi-Moon, Setsuna Meioh/Sailor Pluto, and the Moon Cat trio of Luna, Artemis, and Diana.²²!!Minako Aino/Sailor Venus²* ItsWhatIDo: How she justifies going out of her way to help anyone's relationships: she's a Love Goddess.²* LoveGoddess: She goes out of her way to help ''everyone'' with their relationships (even friendly one) because she has that title.²* SecretKeeper: One of the few who know who FanFic/TheWinxClubLoops' Mystery Looper is. All she has to say about his identity is that he's an idiot.²²!!Setsuna Meioh/Sailor Pluto²* {{Railroading}}: Setsuna named Setsuna Syndrome, a condition when loopers come to see the baseline events as sacred and not to be interfered with. Railroading is one of the main symptoms. While the looping Setsuna no longer displays this behavior, Unawake Loop-Aware versions of her sometimes do.²²!!Michiru Kaioh/Sailor Neptune²* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Accidentally responsible for [[spoiler:worsening Helia's Setsuna Syndrome]].²* ThePrankster: Among the best in the Loops, even claiming the title of best prankster of all for a while after pranking ''Naruto''.²* SecretKeeper: One of the few who know who FanFic/TheWinxClubLoops' Mystery Looper is.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:The Original Seven - Slayers]]²²!!Zelgadis Greywords²²* OfficialCouple: Implied to be this with Amelia.²* PowerOfTheStorm: Capable of doing this.²* SensorCharacter: He was able to sense several thousand Kryptonians in space heading towards Earth when he Looped into DC Comics during the War of the Supermen.²²!!Amelia Wil Tesla Seyruun²²* OfficialCouple: Implied to be this with Zelgadis.²* WhiteMage: Capable of using this for both healing and LightEmUp.²²!! Identified Loopers²->Gracia del Naga "the Serpent" Seyruun, Gourry Gabriev, Luke, Xelloss, and Milina. ²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:The Original Seven - Bleach]]²!! Identified Loopers²->Orihime Inoue, Neliel Tu Odelschvank, Pesche Guatiche, Dondochakka Birstanne, Rukia Kuchiki, Uryu Ishida, Yasutora "Chad" Sado, Kisuke Urahara, Kon, Renji Abarai, Yachiru Kusajishi, Kenpachi Zaraki, Gin Ichimaru, and Rangiku Matsumoto. ²[[/folder]]
