Asuka Honda

Voiced by: Rico Sayama (All games)

Chemistry Club representative. The Hero and titular character of the series, she was scouted during her final year of middle school by Tetsuko, who saw potential in her and subjected her to a year of grueling Training from Hell in order to avenge the club's string of losses in the Mega Fight.

  • Dark Horse Victory: Her, and by extension the Chemistry Club's goal. Asuka is frequently referred to as the tournament's dark horse.
  • Hair Decorations: A slender yellow ribbon tied in a bow across her temple.
  • Here We Go Again!: Her reward for winning in her ending? Another year of Training from Hell so that her skills don't deteriorate! But at least Tetsuko decides to let her have a day off to enjoy the School Festival first.
  • Infinite Supplies: No matter how many test tubes or beakers she tosses, she'll never run out.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: Enshin Hasaiken and its super variant, Enshin Rensaiken act like this... Despite being her throwing flaming test tubes at the opponent.
  • Martial Arts and Crafts: Utilizes secret techniques apparently handed down for generations in the Chem Club.
  • Shoryuken: Chemical Impact.
  • Shotoclone: Semi-averted. While she does indeed have a projectile and rising anti-air punch, she lacks a traditional rushdown technique, instead possessing a secondary projectile and a Spam Attack.
  • Spam Attack: Her Mach Jab move where she throws a quick series of lightning-fast punches.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: Phenomenon Crash and Chou Phenomenon Crash, in which Asuka tosses exploding beakers.
  • Technicolor Eyes: They're yellow, but Asuka doesn't have anything supernatural or sneaky about her.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has blue hair but in a few the game's earliest installments, Asuka's in-game sprite featured her with green hair instead.

Kumi Ookubo

Voiced by: Miki Nagasawa (Original - Limited), Masaki Miki (Final - Return)

Rhythmic Gymnastics Team representative. An extremely reserved first year student who loves her chosen sport with all her heart because she feels it allows her to express herself. Participates strictly to improve her team's budget.

  • Dance Battler: Her graceful moveset has elements of this.
  • Fan Service With A Smile: Several of her ending animations show her working as a waitress in a classroom cafe.
  • Hair Decorations: Ties her hair into a ponytail with a pink ribbon.
  • I Know Madden Kombat: Kumi uses her gymnastics props, such as a ball, ribbon, and gymnastics sticks with her special attacks.
  • Leotard of Power: She's seen wearing a gymnastic leotard throughout most of the games, and in some of the installments her leotards have small openings that reveals a bit of skin.
  • Passionate Sports Girl: Despite her shy personality.
  • She-Fu: Though really, you'd expect this from a gymnast. In particular, her Spinning Swan Kick special sees her planting her foot firmly onto an opponent's head via overhead flip.

Ryuuko Yamazaki

Voiced by: Akira Morimoto (All games)

Volleyball Team representative. A boyish, Hot-Blooded second year sports nut who enters the tournament in order to depose Tamaki as champion.

  • Big Girl, Little Girl: The Big Girl next to her classmate Megumi.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Her eyebrows are somewhat more thicker and visible compared to the other female characters of in the series, especially in her artworks.
  • Bokukko: With "ore" as her pronoun of choice.
  • Boyish Short Hair: One of the few along with Torami with short hair, fitting her boyish personality.
  • Heroic Rematch: Tamaki defeated her in the previous year's tournament, which set her on fire with the desire for another go.
  • Hot-Blooded: Ryuuko's quite hot-blooded when it comes to volleyball.
  • I Know Madden Kombat: She mixes in her volleyball techniques into her fighting repertoire such as having her teammates throw her a volleyball then spiking it to her opponent.
  • Punched Across the Room: Armor-Piercing shoulder slam variant via her Hyper Tackle super.
  • Shock and Awe: Inazuma Serve and Tatsumaki Recieve see Ryuuko adding electricity to either a volleyball tossed to her from offscreen or her own elbows.
  • Spirited Competitor: She's clearly having a lot of fun just fighting everybody, but she stops just short of Blood Knight territory.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Quick Driver and Yamazaki Buster see her using her prodigious jumping ability to grab the enemy, hoist them aloft, and bring them down for a devastating gravity-assisted backbreaker.

Megumi Suzuki

Voiced by: Shizuka Arai (Original - Limited), Yukana (Final - Return)

Cheerleading Squad representative. A baby-faced second year who is popular with the boys around town. However, her short stature often leads her to being mistaken for a first year student.

  • Be the Ball: In some of the later games, she can curl herself up into a ball and roll into her opponents.
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: The Little Girl next to her classmate Ryuuko.
  • The Cutie: Easily one of the cutest girls among the cast.
  • Dance Battler: Somewhat, given her cheerleading-based fighting style.
  • Easy Come, Easy Go: She causes this for the school's vice principal in her ending, where it is revealed that the reason he had been so nice to her lately is that he had participated in a betting pool with the rest of the faculty and bet on her. When she calls him on this, he attempts to silence her by bribing her with food... But then she goes and invites all her friends to join in...
  • Fanservice Pack: In a weird sense. Her officially listed 79cm breasts were never all that visible in artwork or her sprites in earlier games, but come Limited, she's suddenly looking just as stacked as somebody with those measurements and her height should. It's even more noticeable in the Success-developed installments where her artworks portrays her having a surprisingly large bust.
  • Fragile Speedster: One of the fastest characters in the game but has some weak-hitting attacks.
  • Genki Girl: Megumi has a very cheery and upbeat personality, fitting for a cheerleader.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She has twin-tails.
  • Height Angst: She's pretty annoyed by her shortness.
  • Idol Singer: Her profile mentions that she aspires to be one.
  • Martial Arts and Crafts: She uses attacks inspired by her cheerleading routines and uses her pom-poms as a weapon.
  • Older Than They Look: Despite her short and youthful looks, she's around the same age as a few of the girls of the cast.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Megumi Keri-Keri Dance.
  • Rocket Punch: Her Pom-Pom Attack. They even manage to return to her somehow each time she uses it.
  • Shoryuken: Pom-Pom Upper.
  • Tears of Fear: During the end credits of Special and Final, where she gets freaked out at the festival's haunted house attraction. The students portraying the monsters are shown to be plugging their ears to shut out the sound of her cries.
  • Token Mini-Moe: One of the youngest-looking and cutest girls among the cast.

Torami Houjou

Voiced by: Mio Itou

Karate Team representative. A tall, androgynous third year student whose loss against Tamaki at the previous Mega Fight inspired her to train hard for a rematch.

Tamaki Shindou

Voiced by: Juri Shiina (Original - Maxima Masako Katsuki (Special - Limited), Rieko Ogawa (Final - Returns)

Tennis Club representative. A third year and daughter of the school's headmaster who has won the previous two Mega Fight tournaments. Graceful, refined and strong, she is the object of both admiration and jealousy throughout the school.

  • The Ace: Beautiful, smart, talented in sports and admired by the vast majority of her peers. Tamaki herself believes that she has to strive to be one to live up to her father's ideals.
  • Attack Reflector: Her normal attacks have this property as a natural result of her primary weapon being a tennis racket.
  • Daddy's Girl: Although she shows it in a subdued manner, she has nothing but respect and adoration for her father and takes it upon herself to embody the young lady he sought to create through his teachings.
  • Hair Decorations: A large blue bow, used to tie back her hair.
  • Final Boss: For most characters' storylines across the entire series.
  • I Know Madden Kombat: As the representative of the Tennis Club, she fights with a tennis racket, her moveset includes moves like forehands and backhands, and can shoot tennis balls as projeciles.
  • Let's Fight Like Gentlemen: Or more precisely, like proper ladies: She treats every opponent she comes up against with the utmost respect and does not hold back so that there can be no excuses if she happens to lose.
  • Ojou
  • Ojou Ringlets: She has a pair of hair curls at each side of her head.
  • Passionate Sports Girl
  • Playing with Fire: Launches flaming tennis balls at the opponent during Hyakuretsu Serve and Dynamite Serve.
  • Purple Eyes: Denoting her status as The Ace
  • Student Council President

Tetsuko Ougigawara

Voiced by: Saeko Shimazu (Original - Limited), Minako Hino (Final - Return)

Science Club president and Asuka's trainer. Having spent a year putting Asuka through Training from Hell to acquire the secret techniques of the Science Club, she mostly sits on the sidelines during the tournament proper, providing advice and words of inspiration to her junior.

  • Badass Bookworm: While not on par with her prized disciple, her playable appearances show that Tetsuko can kick ass in her own right while also being a chemistry wiz.
  • Cool Shades: That twinkle in her pre-match animation.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: For Asuka, but Asuka clearly does not resent her for it and she is shown to care very much for her protege's well being.
  • Gender Flip: Visually resembles a younger, female version of Coach Oota.
  • Hidden Depths: Is apparently a capable guitar player, as she is seen doing so in the background of Asuka's mid-credits CG in Final.
  • Labcoat of Science and Medicine: Which she wears as a Coat Cape in many of her story portraits (but wears properly during her playable appearances)
  • Mid Boss: Of Asuka and Karina's stories in Final.
  • Moveset Clone: Subverted. She has many of the same specials as Asuka, but with her own unique twist. Their normals are almost completely different.
    • Shotoclone: Subverted, just like with Asuka. However, unlike Asuka, she's not missing a rushdown move, instead lacking an anti-air attack due to not having her own version of Chemical Impact.
      • Energy Ball: Enshin Hasaiken and Enshin Rensatsuken. These are the only special/super moves she has that are exactly identical to Asuka's.
    • Spam Attack: Her version of Mach Jab is much faster, but has a smaller hitbox.
    • Throw Down the Bomblet: Just like Asuka, she can use Phenomenon Crash and Chou Phenomenon Crash. However, she cannot alter the distance of her throws like Asuka can. Instead, different levels of attack input will determine how many beakers she throws. Her version of Chou Phenomenon Crash is much weaker than Asuka's, but has a much wider hitbox.
  • Nice Hat
  • Non-Uniform Uniform: Her Sailor Fuku has a much longer skirt than is the norm for Ryouran's uniform.
  • Promoted to Playable: Became a Secret Character as of Limited
  • Years Too Early: States that her opponent is ten years too early during her Victory Pose.

Gen'ichirou Shindou

Voiced by: Seizo Kato (Original - Excellent), Daisuke Gori (Limited), Shuu Sakura (Final - Return)

The headmaster of Ryouran Academy and Tamaki's father. An industrialist who built his fortune from the ground up following World War II, he decided to transition into being an educator in order to help build the future of Japan. Presides over the Mega Fight and can be, on occasion, spurred into having a friendly spar with his students.

Ichiko Furusato

Voiced by: Yuko Mizutani (Original - Limited), Kaoru Morota (Final - Return)

The "burning announcer" who reports on the status of the Mega Fight matches as part of the school News Club.


     Debuted in Maxima 

Karina Toyota

Voiced by: Kae Araki (All appearances)

Biology Club representative. A first year and Asuka's rival (though Asuka herself sees Karina as a childhood friend rather than a rival) looking to outdo her and secure funding for the Biology Club. She fights alongside her pet frog, Kero-pyon.

  • Arrogant Kung Fu Girl: Definitely comes across as this unless the opponent is somebody she considers a Worthy Opponent, like Torami or Tamaki.
  • The Beastmaster: Primarily with Kero-pyon, but her Kero-Kero Angler super sees her call in a stampede of other frogs to help out as well.
  • Fiery Red Head
  • Incendiary Exponent: Kero-pyon envelops itself in a fiery Battle Aura for Kero-Kero Attack, Kero-Kero Heat Press, and Kero-Kero Mega Heat.
  • Puppet Fighter: The player directly controls Karina herself. Karina orders Kero-pyon to attack using the majority of her special attack inputs. In particular, Kero-Kero Heat Up leaves Karina to fight without him while he charges her super gauge, stopping only if another special attack input is executed.
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Shoryuken: Bio Impact works like this, despite being a rising kick.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail
  • Tsundere: Oh so much. She's tsuntsun with just about everybody, and only Kero-pyon (and on occasion Asuka) bring out her deredere side.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?

Cathy Wild

Voiced by: Judy Monroe (Maxima - Special), Urara Takano (Excellent (PS1) - Limited), REIKA (Final - Return)

Pro Wrestling Association representative. A guest invited by Gen'ichirou from an American sister school.

Kiyoko Mitarai

Voiced by: Yumi Yabuki (Maxima), Noriko Hidaka (Special - Return)

Softball Team representative. A second year shortstop and elected to take up the position of Student Council President in the coming year.

Nana Owada

Voiced by: Miki Takahashi (Maxima - Limited), Yuuki Asakura (Final - Return)

Japanese Dance Association representative. A first year and eldest daughter of a famous family, her sheltered, traditionalist upbringing causes her to take the competition and everything about it way too seriously.

  • Antiquated Linguistics: Uses VERY old Japanese linguistics, speaking in the manner of a lady of a feudal clan.
  • Blade on a Stick: Whips out a naginata for her Busou Souenjin super. It sets the enemy on fire and comes in two variations as of Limited. "I" (the original) is a simple slash which does more damage, but "II" has Nana spin the weapon, allowing for more hits with a much wider hitbox.
  • Dance Battler: Despite being the representative of a student association revolving around a form of dance, this trope only applies for one move in her entire arsenal (Ushiwaka no Mai).
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Sakushuuha, which uses a powerful shout to generate a momentary Deflector Shield.
  • Ojou: Was an Ice Queen variant as opposed to Tamaki's Proper Lady type until the PS1 version of Excellent, where additional story segments paint her as far less cold.
  • Paper Fan of Doom: Throws these during Fuugetsusen and dual wields them during Ushiwaka no Mai.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Ouka Rengeki
  • Voiceover Letter: Her story is bookended by ones sent to her (unseen) parents.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Despite everyone in-story referring to it as black, her artwork and sprites both portray it as blue... Until Final where it was changed to purple.

Shinobu Kawasaki

Voiced by: Hiroka Nishizawa (All appearances)

A street brawler from a different school. While traveling the country on a personal quest to defeat the biggest badasses from 100 different schools, she ran into Tamaki, who was her 100th opponent and the only one to actually best her. She subsequently crashes the festival looking for payback.


How well does it match the trope?
