Marshmellow-kun and Marshmellow-chan, standing side by side.

The MC of the game. While there is no given name in-game, Word of God confirmed it as Marshmellow.

Provides examples of:

  • Batman Can Breathe in Space: In Eva's introduction, they jump into space (surviving the trip to and from) to punch a Humongous Mecha in the face.
  • Barrier Maiden: Seducing The Dark One causes her to leave Earth alone.
  • Beyond the Impossible: After unlocking enough time blocks, Marshmellow is able to practice 12 hobbies and several jobs all at once.
  • Bigger Is Better in Bed: For the male Marshmellow, and Buxom Is Better for the female Marshmellow. Fumi notes that they are "generously endowed", and seems rather enthusiastic that they are.
  • Breast Expansion: While a male Marshmellow becomes visibly more sleek and buff as his stats increase, a female Marshmellow's bust visibly grows and gets perkier.
  • Canon Name: While they're meant to be an Audience Surrogate, and most characters refer to them in ways other than their name, Word of God has stated that their canonical name is Marshmellow. Somewhat downplayed because they have been referred to as Marshmellow a scant few times in-game (like Alpha's ode to them being called "A Song About Marshmellow").
  • The Chosen One: The Sexy Chosen One, at that, according to Karma and Sutra.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Eva's introduction involves punching an alien mech in the face.
  • Did You Just Romance Cthulhu?: Two of their haremettes are a Sealed Evil in a Can and a Humanoid Abomination.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Eventually, one of their jobs is being a wizard.
  • Featureless Protagonist: In a sense. You can't get more featureless than a White Blob. Ayano points out a few features from her "research", though (specifically, that they're 4'2", weigh 102 lbs, and have a birthmark on their right heel).
  • Gonk: At low stat levels, Marshmellow has a hilariously hideous appearance.
  • Harem Seeker: Presumably, since girls just keep falling in love, though this may also be due to Q-Piddy's influence.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Has the chance to do this during the ending.
  • The Power of Love: If you perform a Heroic Sacrifice, the portal closes because it was an Act of True Love.
  • Purely Aesthetic Gender: Just pressing the Gender Bender buttons in the stats menu at any time results in an Easy Sex Change. It won't disrupt gameplay at all. Heck, one bit of dialogue has Bonnibel ask Marshmallow if they changed their gender.
  • Shorter Means Smarter: If you level up your wisdom or intelligence stats a lot, considering Ayano explicitly describes Marshmellow as being 4'2".
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Q-Pernikiss, and potentially all the other girls as well, if you choose to sacrifice yourself during the ending.
  • Took a Level in Badass: One of the most literal examples, since there's an actual Badass stat you can level up. As for a non-stat related example, they can go from an average person to someone who can jump into space, and punch the lights out of a Humongous Mecha with their bare hands (in fact, that's the cutscene that introduces Eva).
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: They accidentally unseal the Sealed Evil in a Can that eventually causes the Lustpocalypse, and they create the world-ending portal by failing to properly cast a spell.


Provides examples of:

  • Cardiovascular Love: She's a love fairy and her outfit has hearts as a decoration in a lot of places, such as the edges of her dress, on her stockings, the legs of her boots, her crown, and the arrow she's holding.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: After the initial tutorial about how to play, she's only seen in the Hint and Store screens. Then you unlock Q-Pernikiss.
  • Pointy Ears: Her ears stick out from her head, and end in points.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: The whole adventure starts from her blessing Marshmellow with their powers of love and seduction. This directly leads to Marshmellow ripping open the fabric of reality, unleashing Pamu and The Dark One, and ultimately necessitates either her or Marshmellow giving their life to save the world.
  • Winged Humanoid: She has green feathered wings coming from her back, and is human-shaped.

Just out of curiosity... Do you think I'm pretty? I'm curious if... I'm attracted to dunces, I guess...

Provides examples of:

  • Bandage Babe: While she's in the hospital. She's not happy about it.
    Cassie: I look like a toilet paper pirate!
  • Brooklyn Rage: She's the Tsundere of the game, and her actress voices her with a Bronx accent.
  • Casual Kink: Proudly proclaims herself to be "an equal opportunity exhibitionist", wanting to be dressed up in lace or latex, or paraded around with no top on at her lover's behest. She also lacks any noticeable tan lines despite her love of catching rays at the beach. It should be noted that she pointedly complains about being exposed to random strangers at the Adversary level. As befits a Tsundere, she's likely using anger to mask her arousal at her predicament.
    • She will also admit to regularly going without underwear, enjoying the thrill of possibly exposing herself to others.
  • Crash-Into Hello: A rather extreme version; their first meeting is when Marshmallow gets distracted by a pigeon, and crashes into her hard enough to require medical attention.
  • Emotionally Tongue-Tied: Becomes prominent as you get close to her; it's clear she loves you, but is really uncomfortable with acknowledging it or publicly expressing it.
  • GirlishPigtails/MegaTwintails: reach down to her hips
  • Messy Hair: Discussed in the Sweetheart selection quote: "Man, I just can't do a thing with my hair lately. It's either these giant streams of gold, or frizz city!"
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Tsundere: Her theme. Despite this, she's the easiest girl to romance. And she's of the classic type (going from Tsun to dere as you progress).
  • Worst Aid: Downplayed, but she still receives some hilariously inept care at the hospital, as they managed to put her hospital gown on backwards. She's understandably upset that this leaves her breasts completely exposed.
  • Your Makeup Is Running: Upon dressing her up in a wedding gown, she warns you that she's going to ruin her mascara from crying during your wedding. In her own words, this will make her "look like a melting raccoon."

All I want is someone smart, tech-savvy, motivated, with decent mid-control skills and a nice butt. Is that too much to ask?

Provides examples of:

  • A Date with Rosie Palms: If poked while at the Lovers level (and naked), she'll bring up how most of her experience is in "single player."
  • Berserk Button: Getting outplayed. Both Ayano and Marshmellow do this, and the scaling of poorly she loses her cool depends on whom did it.
    Ayano: I played Mio on Get Smashed, and when I beat her, she... Well, nevermind. It's just a small bruise.
  • Buffy Speak: When referring to the protagonist at midway affection levels.
  • Buxom Is Better: She knows you're staring at them, but she doesn't mind.
  • Gamer Chick: Her theme. Ayano thinks she may be addicted with them.
    Ayano: I love Video Games! But I'm worried Mio might be addicted to them. Has she ever over-reacted to losing a game?
  • Heartbreak and Ice Cream: Non-romantic example. Mio is so devastated by some random stranger (aka you, the player) beating her high score on a video game that she starts guzzling down ice cream.
    Mio: Derrs errs cream... Ert ders nerthing fer mer pern... De-garbled 
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Whenever Ayano is involved, usually in a form of being worried.
    Mio: Suddenly, killing girls in Yandere Simulator feels weird to me. Am I losing my edge? / I was playing Yandere Simulator today, and got a weird Meta-Deja-Vu feeling from it.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: Mio does.
    Mio: Hey! I don't wear these shorty shorts for warmth! I'm expecting squeezes and/or awkward shouting ala Gangnam style!

Do you want to share a tuna sandwich? Or a can of tuna? Or a raw tuna? I like sharing, so let me know your preference.

Provides examples of:

  • Animal-Eared Headband: Uses one because she believes she's a cat.
  • Cardboard Box Home: Quill lives in one until it gets CRUSHED.
  • Cat Girl: Her theme, to the confusion and consternation of several other characters. Her ending reveals she is actually aware she's not really a cat, she's just very committed to roleplaying one in daily life. Possibly overlaps with Casual Kink, with her use of an anal sex toy to complete the look and her desire to be treated like a pet in public.
  • Cleavage Window: Has one in her lingerie outfit, which is, quite appropriately, shaped like a cat.
  • Dull Surprise: At lower relationship levels, her voice is mostly monotone. She emotes more as time goes on.
  • Expressive Accessory: Her Animal-Eared Headband will droop and flatten as if they were real cat ears. Same with her tail, being that it's actually a buttplug fetish toy that acts like a real cat tail. Given all the other magical elements of the setting, this could be a case of her fervently believing she's a cat empowering them.
  • GirlishPigtails/MegaTwintails
  • Heroic Albino: Very possibly an albino, since her skin is incredibly pale compared to everyone else, she has white hair and her irises are bright red. She also makes it a point to stay out of the sun during dates on the beach.
  • Head Pet: her kitten
  • Significant Birth Date: Subverted. Her birthday is October 31, Halloween, but nothing is made of it.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her twintails go all the way down past her butt.
  • Stealth Pun: On Adversary level, her clothing and hair are soaked. In other words, she's a wet pussy.

Do you like girls? I'm not sure if you noticed, but I am one.

Provides examples of:

  • Breast Expansion: Her slimegirl costume easily doubles her already impressive bust size.
  • Buxom Is Better: Played with. Hers are bigger than her head, being E cups, which several girls are jealous of. Elle, though, is unhappy with how they're pretty much all anyone notices about her, and very sad that people are often physically attracted to her, but no one before Marshmallow actually loved her.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: a lot of the things she says have very little connection to reality
  • Cry Cute: Buying her a plush toy or a puppy is implied to cause her to break down in a bout of happy crying.
  • The Ditz: If she's not being Literal-Minded, she's being perplexed by her unique train of thought.
  • I Taste Delicious: In her uncensored slimegirl costume, she's depicted licking her own nipples. Her emits say that she's strawberry flavored and would very much like for you to sample her too.
  • Literal-Minded: Most of her dialogue revolves around her being confused by expressions.
    Are chick peas only for girls? Are there guy peas? I hope so.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is Elle, as in (Cinder)ell(a). Appropriately, her actress makes her sound like a Disney Princess (though she sounds most like Snow White, all things considered).
  • The Nicknamer: Inquires if you'd like to be nicknamed "Beachball" or "Panda Paws" while at the Awkward Besties level. Poking her at Sweetheart or above will reveal she settled on "Panda Paws"
  • Noodle Incident: If you dress her up in lingerie, she'll admit she was momentarily worried she'd shown up to work "underdressed". Again.
    • Upon becoming Lovers, she'll ask if you've mistaken her for a squeeze toy if you poke her. According to her, it's a common mistake.
  • No Sense of Direction: Implied when she goes on a Sightseeing Date, she is looking at a map and making a Pictorial Speech Bubble of a squiggle, likely to represent confusion or frustration. If you look closely, she's also holding the map upside down.
  • Playboy Bunny: Dons the outfit for the 2017 Easter event, the prize for completion of which is a pinup of her showing off her butt in it while sucking on a carrot. Or, if you're playing the uncensored version, she's taken off the leotard and put the carrot in her ass.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: One of the least hostile towards the protagonist at the beginning. Even at Adversary level, she's more bewildered than angry.
  • Shrinking Violet: As her relationship with Marshmallow blossoms into love, it's learned that she's painfully aware of how ditzy and physically attractive she is, and how tearfully happy she is to have met finally someone who genuinely loves her. When you become lovers with her, she reveals that you're her first and, she hopes, her only.
  • Sleepyhead: Her theme, being a narcoleptic, to the point where she's always carrying around a pillow just in case she conks out suddenly.
    • Apparently, she's got such an extreme case, she can fall asleep during sex.

Let's play truth or dare. I dare you to do me. Sorry, I don't have a very good imagination.

Provides examples of:

  • Added Alliterative Appeal: When clicking on her at adversary level:
    Nutaku: Voila! In view, a vivacious vaudevillian vixen, a voluptuous vision of vanity and voracious voyeur of vulgarity!note 
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: of the website of the same name, which hosts the NSFW version for free.
  • Anything That Moves: She states that the player and her have many common interests, like Bonnibel, Iro, Fumi...
    • She also will mention that she wouldn't mind sharing some of the other girls the player has seduced, expressing a desire to "take the front."
  • Bilingual Bonus: For some of her Flirts / Seduces:
    • A Crush Flirt:
      Voulez-vous coucher avec moi? Google that one and get back to me, luv.
    • A Sweetheart Flirt:
      Oppai dekai ne?! Nodo kawaita?
  • Beyond the Impossible: Ayano is the only person to actually dull down her lust
    Someone is being creepy enough to dull my sex drive. That is an AMAZING accomplishment.
  • Brains and Bondage: The brains part gets implied through her familiarity with an astonishing amount of literature and lightning fast wit. The bondage part is... not implied at all.
  • Cardiovascular Love: She shapes her hands into a heart symbol when you're Awkward Besties.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: According to Ayano, she's worried about how awful Nutaku's childhood was to have her be who she is now
  • Ethical Slut: She may be an utterly incorrigible sex fiend whose entire life is ruled by her insatiable sex drive, but she still falls in love with you, making you the sole target of all her desires. How much this has to do with her actually being in love and isn't her roleplaying as your bondage slave is up for debate, since she repeatedly says her body belongs to you.
  • Everybody Has Standards: Nutaku's fine with everything...except for murder
    Well, despite my many fetishes, I don't count being murdered being one of them. A little bit of choking is okay though...
  • God-Created Canon Foreigner: Nutaku was exlusive to the NSFW version hosted on Nutaku, until version 0.120.
  • Gratuitous French: This Crush Flirt:
    Voulez-vous coucher avec moi? Google that one and get back to me, luv.
  • Gratuitous Japanese:
    • This Sweetheart Flirt:
      Oppai dekai ne?! Nodo kawaita?
  • The Immodest Orgasm: Poking her at high enough relationship levels results in a rather... explicit message. Her dialogue when receiving gifts is also pretty unsubtle.
  • Lingerie Scene: Her main "outfit" is basically just straps and lace.
  • Mega Twintails: Not as long as Cassie's or Quill's, but much thicker
  • Mismatched Eyes: Her eyes are the same colour as her hair, only on opposite sides.
  • Multicolored Hair: Blue on the left side, pink on the right.
  • Stripperiffic: What Nutaku wears can only be considered "clothes" in the loosest possible sense of the word. Her vulva is always visible, and she makes only a token effort to cover up her nipples at the lowest relationship levels.
    • Hilariously, her Lingerie outfit is actually far more modest than her usual getup: it's a latex bondage catsuit that covers everything but her head.

There's nothing I like better than a motivated person! I love a get-shitzu-done mentality! Work hard and play hard!

Provides examples of:

  • Action Girl: See Badass Biker and Thrill Seeker.
  • All Women Love Shoes: Implied and downplayed with her requirements for Crush level, with just 2 shoes. She does, however, also mention she loves how she looks in heels.
  • Badass Biker: Well, angry biker, at any rate. But then again, she survived her motorcycle wreck with just a few scratches instead of broken bones (or worse). Considering that Cassie was hospitalized by a bicycle crash, Iro is one tough girl in comparison!
  • Biker Babe: She has (well, had) a motorcycle, and just look at her cute face in that picture.
  • Expy: Of Rainbow Dash, at least visually.
  • Gold Digger: While nowhere near as a bad as Nina, she definitely has shades of it. Upon becoming your Girlfriend, she'll tease you about all the horrible things she's going to do to your wallet and praises you for "digging a little deeper" to buy her more expensive gifts. She's also the first girl who requires you to buy her a car for completion.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: She has a black jacket that is presumably leather, given how connected the ideas of bikers wearing leather are. The jacket is removed after Adversary level.
  • Multicolored Hair: And how. It's somehow layered. She even lampshades this in a piece of dialogue:
    Iro: My hair? Oh, it actually grows naturally this way. Apparently my Mom ate a rainbow when she was pregnant, and... I'm kidding!
    • Further lampshaded in the uncensored version, when she gets naked, teasing you that you must have been wondering if her carpet matched her drapes. She is, however, completely smooth around her crotch.
    Iro: [...] Well jokes on you! There's no carpet, only hardwood fl- wait no! Ack! No! Analogy gone bad!
  • Punny Name: "Iro" means color/colors in Japanese.
  • Symbol Swearing: In her intro cutscene, she yells a string of symbols after her motorcycle gets wrecked.
    • In the fully voiced Steam version, it sounds like she's saying "SONUVALECHER!"
  • Thrill Seeker: Mentions that going skydiving with the player would be the perfect romantic date, amongst other things.
  • Tomboy: Her theme, being an expy of Rainbow Dash.
    • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Despite her sporty personality, she has a stated preference for high heels, likes using flowery words and often admits she'd like it if you'd do something romantic to sweep her off her feet.

If you're aiming to impress me, go grab a frilly apron, grab a mixing spoon, and start giving that batter what for!

Provides examples of:

  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: While not immediately visible, upon becoming Lovers with Bonnibel, you learn her pubic hair is deliberately styled and patterned to resemble rippled red velvet frosting. Fitting for a baker.
  • Big Eater: A lot of her mandatory gifts involve sweets, and she's usually seen eating on the dates. Her profile even states that eating is her hobby.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Immediately after becoming friends, Bonnibel very clearly develops a crush on you. She'll spend every level advance conversation nervously dancing around the subject while getting more and more transparent in her implications. She finally does spit it out upon becoming Sweethearts, admitting she was absolutely terrified of being rejected.
  • Curtains Match The Windows: Both are a deep, warm, almost maroonish red.
  • Delicious Distraction: Inverted, she ruins a tray of cookies while she's daydreaming about you.
  • Fiery Redhead: Subverted. When you first crash into her whilst she's carrying a cake, covering her from head to toe in cream and icing, she hardly even chides you. She's probably the most gentle character out of them all, second only to Elle. Apart from her fetish for spanking her lover.
  • Hidden Depths: If her admiration for the arts and smart people don't quickly clue you in that she's not a shallow person, there's also her Crush quote.
    "I'm not just an accent and a couple of measuring cups, sugar. There's more going on under this apron than you might think."
    • She's also one of the only girls who will tell you that you don't need to buy her love with expensive gifts, preferring your company to material things. Her gift requirements compared to the others in her range are quite modest, and becoming her Lover doesn't have require any gifts at all.
    "Sugar cookie, you don't have to lay these kinda gifts on me. If you're want to spend something, spend some time!"
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: Her hips are easily the most pronounced of all the girls, Discussed during an Awkward Besties flirt, where a flustered swimsuit saleswoman described her figure as "cartoonish."
  • Kinky Spanking: Whether she'd prefer to give or receive is a bit vague, but she apparently has a fondness for spanking with implements. No longer vague in the uncensored version, where she makes it quite clear she's doing the spanking.
    "Ya'll remind me of a wooden spoon. Great for mixing it up, and you'll do for a spanking in a pinch... Tee hee!"
    • Also, if you poke her at Lover level when she's nude, she laughs and declares good-naturedly "Someone's itchin' for a spankin'!"
  • Nerds Are Sexy: On several occasions, she makes it clear she finds smart people attractive and is aroused by the creativity of artists. No points for guessing her favorite stat and preferred occupation. note  She gets a bit more explicit about it after becoming your Sweetheart, revealing she values intelligence far more than sexual prowess.
    "The sexiest organ is the brain, sugar. A little wisdom upstairs is worth all the smolder in the basement, if you catch my meaning."
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes all the way down past her butt.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Marshmallow can be male (and seems to be assumed to be male, according to the descriptions in some of the sex scenes), and she leans towards Tenderness as far as stats go.
  • Southern Belle: Certainly has the accent and manners of one, and will sometimes describe herself as one when poked post-Lovers.


Provides examples of:

  • Decoy Protagonist: She's initially presented as the eighth girl, but is soon killed by Ayano (the actual eighth girl).
  • Expy: Of Kokona Haruka.
  • The Faceless: Her face is always hidden in shadows.
  • Losing a Shoe in the Struggle: After getting crushed (stabbed), her empty, bloody shoe is visible in the background of her intro cutscene.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is meant to evoke the generic, high school love interest. Subverted because her design is that of the very identifiable Kokona Haruka.
  • Mega Twintails: She has bright purple tornado drill pigtails.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Killed by Ayano in her intro cutscene.

Good afternoon, Senpai! Are you wearing a new cologne today? I mean, it's not like I make a point to smell you or anything...

Provides examples of:

  • Adaptational Heroism:
    • It's relatively minor, but even if Q-Pernikiss is the one who performs the Heroic Sacrifice, she's still crying tears of sorrow. This is one of her romantic rivals, mind you.
    • She's full blown worried about Nutaku, having to want her find something else that isn't just sex
      Hopefully someday Nutaku can find something other than sex that makes her feel like a better person.
  • Age Lift: To make the sex scenes in the NSFW version legal, she's aged up from 17 in Yandere Simulator to 18 in Crush Crush.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Keeps up the facade of a friendly, innocent schoolgirl that seemingly likes the other rivals, but her dialogue makes it clear that she's trying to put you off them. If you visit another girl after her, sometimes the girl will comment that they feel like they're being followed, or narrowly escaped death in some way.
  • Girls Love Chocolate: Ayano has Chocolates as her preferred gift.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Of course. When she's not outright threatening the other girls' lives behind your back, she's badmouthing them or trying to convince you that they're bad news.
  • Determinator: She's willing to take on rivals like Pamu and Bearverly to get her Senpai, and she never gives up on trying to kill them no matter how many times she fails.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: Try as she might, no matter which girl she targets, she'll never be able to successfully Murder the Hypotenuse.
  • Horrifying the Horror: Looking into Ayano's eyes terrified the Dark One.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: While she's just as keen on eliminating her rivals as ever, none of her attempts ever pan outnote  and she's a full-fledged love interest.
  • In-Joke: A lot of references to her original game surround her, such as her bust size being "variable" or her lines about pointless emails like what her game's developer is constantly bothered by.
  • Intercontinuity Crossover: She is Ayano Aishi from Yandere Simulator.
  • Knife Nut: She repeatedly tries to Murder The Hypotenuses with knives and cleavers, although she does use other methods like Tampering with Food and Drink.
    Ayano (describing her new knife): "Guaranteed not to slip, even when covered in... milk."
    • Like with Pamu:
      Pamu: Wow! Some broad has been stalking me with a knife! She's so disturbed and adorable - I love her!
      Ayano: I think that Pamu might not be human... She laughs when she's stabbed... I hear.
    • And Alpha:
      Alpha: My handlers told me that I received some poisoned chocolates.note  I wonder if by accident?
      Alpha: I think someone tried to hack my servers today. And by "hack" I mean with a meat cleaver.
    • And Quill:
      Quill: Are Cat-Catchers allowed to use steak knives for their jobs? Because the one that's chasing me sure is.
    • And regarding Elle:
      Ayano: I heard people with narcolepsy sometimes slip and fall and stab themselves with knives 20 or 30 times. How awful!
  • Last Second Sentence Swap:
    Ayano: YOU'LL NEVER TAKE ME—Oh, sorry! You surprised me! I thought you were someone else, tee hee!
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: One of the few times she explicitly states her violent tendencies is when The Dark One is involved.
    Ayano: That Darkness Girl is so lost and alone. But if she's going to destroy the world, I guess we should kill it.
    Ayano: If you'd like my help dealing with that Darkness Girl, Senpai, I can grab my box cutter anytime.
    Ayano: So you're trying to defeat the Darkness Girl with The Power of Love? May I suggest a spiked bat?
  • Never Speak Ill of the Dead: Despite Q-Pernikiss being one of her romantic rivals, after the latter's Heroic Sacrifice, she can't help but contribute to the Tender Tears.
  • Only Sane Man: With people like Pamu and Luna, Q-Pernikiss and Eva, Bearverly, and The Dark One, it says an lot regarding what Ayano can do and yet still seem like the most normal person of the bunch... despite having a variable bust size.
  • Psycho Lesbian: Considered this if you play as a girl.
  • Shout-Out: One of Ayano's poses is Yuno Gasai's memetic "yandere face" from Future Diary.
    • Ayano's behavior of giving info upon the various girls is an shout out to Info-Chan from Ayano's main game
  • Yandere: Duh. And if that wasn't obvious enough, she's constantly trying to bad-mouth or kill the other girls, despite failing all the time.

Logdate 7112 - The Marshmallow from the local time group remains in constant contact. I am beginning to find them physically appealing.

Provides examples of:

  • A-Cup Angst: She's well aware that her breasts are small compared to most of your harem, and makes efforts to rectify her supposed deficit. By modifying herself to have boobs as big as Elle's. It took her barely thirty minutes to develop back pain that was, in her words, "excruciating."
  • Bi the Way: One of the few girls who are both explicitly bisexual and not a Depraved Bisexual. She'll ask Marshmallow for advice on forming her own harem of girls midway through her relationship.
  • Brains and Bondage: She's not as forthright about it as Nutaku, but Fumi will offhandedly mention an appreciation for acts that involve her being handcuffed and whipped.
  • Censor Steam: Her Adversary artwork depicts her wreathed in a cloud of smoke while obviously nude. Upon becoming Lovers, she will happily note that the steam has dissipated and her genitals are now completely visible.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Her romance follows her defrosting.
  • Expospeak Gag: Many of her jokes revolve around her highly technical speech pattern. It initially makes her come off cold and robotic, but transforms into endearing as she warms up to you, even flirting with you like a technical manual.
    Fumi: "I have noticed you performing repeated perfunctory scans of my mammary glands. If you'd like, I have no objections to you performing a much more thorough investigation."
  • Free-Love Future: Hails from one, though it's also apparently something of a Bad Future, as human sexuality has been severely impacted. She remarks that the past is far more focused on relationships and dating, as opposed to wanton lust, and states her rather racy lingerie would be considered formalwear in the future. This makes sense, as she hails from a Post Apocalyptic future which has undergone the "Lustpocalypse".
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Her status as a hero is up for discussion, but she will express a desire for a threesome involving Nina, and has apparently spent considerable time ogling Bonnibel naked.
  • Meganekko: Obviously. Lampshaded at upgrade to Lover
    Fumi:Access granted. My garment security passcode is "Meganekko". Do your worst.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her ponytail goes all the way down past her butt.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: Only during moonlit strolls.
  • Scannable Man: She has a bar code on the back of her neck.
  • Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: Once her relationship level is high enough, she'll say that if she needs to alter the course of history for the two of you to stay together, she'll do so without remorse.
  • Technobabble: Most of her dialogue is this.
  • Time Travel: She shows up because of this à la Terminator

click here to see her human form

Provides examples of:

  • Animorphism: Some of her dialogue reveals she was a warrior who was transformed into a bear, and she can be turned back into a human once you reach Lover level with her.
  • Bears Are Bad News: She knocks Marshmellow out during their first meeting.
  • Big Eater: Bearverly demands lots of chocolate and cake at low relationship levels.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: In her Lovers scene...
  • Expy: Her furry form is one of Polt.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: As a human, she has several noticeable claw-mark scars across her body which are purely cosmetic.
  • Hulk Speak: Her text is in all capitals with poor grammar as well as constantly referring to herself in the third person.
  • Joke Character: Was originally created as an April's Fools joke, but players liked her enough for her to stay.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Her humanoid form is a human girl with bear ears, claws and fur below her knees and elbows.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: She is a mostly realistic-looking bear in makeup and feminine clothing in contrast to the other Animesque girls.
  • Punny Name: Of "bear", and Beverly.
  • Seashell Bra: If you two go to the beach in her humanoid form, she has a sea star on one of the breasts and some algae on the other.

How do ye feel about fraternizin' with the staff? Because I'm definitely down with fraternizin'.

  • Berserk Button: Messing with her drinks as could be seen in a post-Ayano remark.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Towards Elle, surprisingly enough. She remarks how much of an innocent sweetheart the sleepyheaded girl is, and demands that you treat her exceptionally well.
    • Might be more than just sisterly instinct, as a late Summer 2018 event offered, as its prize, a pin up of Nina happily tickling and teasing Elle at a Japanese festival alongside some other girls. While groping her breasts. In the uncensored version, it's just the two of them, and they're naked on a bed, making it even more likely her intentions are not sisterly.
  • French Maid: Her Theme, although she's Scottish.
  • Gold Digger: She only accepts cars as gifts, the most expensive kind in the game, at least before you unlock a few more exponentially expensive ones via the late-game Wizard job. She also is unlocked by you having lots and lots of money.
  • Lady Drunk: Really, really likes her beer, Stout in particular, and has actually gained a level of expertise in brewing her own.
  • Ninja Maid: Apparently; at Lover level, she informs you she's an expert at swordplay.
    Nina: If ye ever want to take up swordplay or brewing craft beer, let me know. I happen to be an expert.
  • Romantic Wingman: Offers to serve as this at high enough relationship levels. Interestingly, she starts offering upon becoming your girlfriend.
  • Servile Snarker: Enjoys doing this, especially early on in her romance.

Ain't no mountain high enough! Ain't no connection slow enough! Ain't no breakfast fried enough to keep me from getting to you babe!

Provides examples of:

  • All Women Love Shoes: Implied with her requirements for Sweetheart level, with 500 shoes.
  • Body Horror: Played for laughs, she had an... incident where she accidentally uploaded herself into a "smart toaster."
  • Expy: Of Hatsune Miku.
  • Hologram Projection Imperfection: She's a hologram and her image is broken up by scanlines. Until she becomes human
  • Intangibility: As a hologram, she's intangible, and makes a lot of comments about it, such as in this Friendzoned Chat:
    Alpha: So... What does a solid person do for fun? I'm a hologram, so I can't hit a volleyball or eat a falafel.
  • GirlishPigtails/MegaTwintails: As befitting an Expy of Hatsune Miko
  • Misplaced Accent: Despite being based off of a japanese android, she inexplicably has a Russian accent.
  • Offstage Villainy: Happens when she catches a virus.
    Alpha: I got some malware yesterday and turned evil for a few hours. But no worries - I'm all fixed up now!
  • Pinocchio Syndrome: She desperately wants to become human, even breaking down crying while admitting the one thing she wants more than anything is to know what it feels like to hold your hand. Once you reach her Lover level, you can make that happen.
  • Sense Freak: She gets a major kick out of being tangible, to the point of running around nude at Lovers' level and in NSFW mode.
  • Virtual Celebrity: Her theme, being an expy of Miku Hatsune.

"I'm vanilla flavoured. Try it! Except for one or two spots. But those are the fun spots."

Provides examples of:

  • Anything That Moves: Mentions she transformed into you at a certain point and 'banged' Bearverly. The game is also pretty tame up until you encounter her, but Pamu's dialogue gets relatively... explicit at points.
    Pamu: Do you mind putting on a tuxedo, a mask and a top hat, and then just nailing me from behind for a few hours? It's sort of a fetish of mine.
    Pamu: This dialog string has been flagged as inappropriate for all ages. Content removed.
    Pamu: My favorite kind of movies can't be shown in theaters. FYI. TMI. SMH.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Has no concept of its existence; she blatantly talks about being in the game, mentioning it by title, 'finishing' other girls, taking your diamonds, 'grinding hearts' and downloading an autoclicker, amongst many, many other things.
  • Drone of Dread: Seems to emit one at the Nuisance level. Which also foreshadows her involvement in much of the endgame's... unpleasantness. It might also, given Pamu's... appetites, just be a vibrator that she's left on while talking to you.
    Pamu: "*conspicuous buzzing sound*"
  • I Will Show You X: When you poke her at low relationship levels.
    Pamu: You call that a poke? I'll SHOW you a poke!
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Judging from these lines of dialogue...
    Pamu: Wow! Some broad has been stalking me with a knife! She's so disturbed and adorable - I love her!
    Ayano: I think that Pamu might not be human... She laughs when she's stabbed... I hear.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes all the way down past her butt.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Her theme. Sutra, at Sweethearts level and above, will even mention that she almost caused the extinction of her entire race. How exactly she's supposed to have done such a thing is another matter entirely...
    Sutra: Watch out for that Pamu. She nearly caused the extinction of my people. Also, she bites.

I can definitely guess your alignment. It's Lawful Sexy!

Provides examples of:

  • A-Cup Angst: She has the smallest breasts in the game, and it worries her a bit.
  • Blasé Boast: In a talk at Nuisance level:
    Luna: I'm surprised you're not more afraid! You're in the presence of the most powerful, beautiful, and humble sorceress in Dark World!
    Luna: I don't mean to brag, but I'm a sparkling conversationalist and an amazing lover. You should consider courting me.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: In a flirt at Awkward Besties level:
    Luna: Lord of Darkness of the Dark World, I call upon you. Grant me your dark darkness so I may darken the darkest regions of the dark, and bring darkness to the great darkness within the darkness!
  • Expy: Of Lina Inverse.
  • Space Elves: Yeah, she fits.

Do you find me physically desirable? I have no experience with such social interactions.

Provides examples of:

  • Came from the Sky: From a Portal in Space, really.
  • Emotionless Girl:
    • Naturally, since she's an Expy of Rei.
    • Gradually starts being subverted as you progress your relationship with her. At a high enough level, she'll mention that this is the first time she has been able to generate a FEELS field with her own emotions, and the experience is rather overwhelming for her.
  • Expendable Clone: Eva references that she is this at Nuisance level.
    Eva: Do not feel bad. Had I been destroyed, it would not have been a great loss. Mecha pilots do not tend to last very long.
  • Expy: Of Rei Ayanami.
  • Humongous Mecha: She pilots a black and green Evangelion-like mecha.
  • Mama Bear: Has one in the form of her mecha.
    Eva: I'll take you for a ride in Mecha Zero sometime. But you'll need to think pure thoughts about me. She's a bit protective.
  • Rei Ayanami Expy
  • Stone Wall: Her requirements for each level are pretty simple (just a bunch of dates, and a certain number of hearts clicked). She also has massive requirements for such simple criteria.

Come my Gorgeous! Let us do Sexy Yoga to free your mind and limber your body.

Provides examples of:

  • Bi the Way: She's explicitly Sutra's lover, but will also fall in love with a male Marshmellow.
  • Bodyguard Crush: Sutra is her bodyguard and lover.
  • Big Beautiful Woman: Despite just having a softer physique than the other girls, the game treats her this way. Ayano has a different opinion.
  • Everything's Better with Princesses: She is a princess.
  • One True Love: With Sutra, though perhaps with a lesser intensity—however, that may simply be because Sutra tends to express herself quite strongly.
    Karma: Sutra is my Guardian. She is my lover, my confidant, my friend and my masseuse. You should see what she can do with those abs!
    • Not that this stops either of them from indulging in some Mentor-Protege Romance with Marshmallow, and Karma, for her part, seems genuinely enamored with her pupil.
  • Punny Name: Combined with her bodyguard, they are the Kama Sutra, famous book about sex positions.
  • Protectorate: Sutra is her bodyguard.

You must find beauty everywhere. In yourself. In the world around you. Even in your crazy ex-girlfriends.

    The Dark One
Aww man, the evil girl falling for the hapless hero is SO CLICHE! I hate this game! Hahaha!

Provides examples of:

  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: They're an Eldritch Abomination with different forms, but she interacts with you looking like a goth version of Mio.
  • Bored with Insanity:
    The Dark One: Nothing? No untimely death? Life is suffering.
    The Dark One: If your plan is to defeat me with disappointment, you're doing very well.
    The Dark One: I'm here to end the world, you're here to... click stuff, I guess. Can we hurry this along?
  • Boss Battle: Her hearts will continuously go down, she gives you no diamonds, and she'll consume your Reset Boost to boot.
  • Creepy Cool Crosses: Wears a couple of these. She's a Goth, after all.
  • Deadly Gaze: Looking into her eyes is enough to kill people.
  • Did You Just Romance Cthulhu?: Considering her frequent references to 'different forms', she's very unlikely to actually be human, so her endgame is essentially this.
  • Evil Costume Switch: She refers to herself as having taken the form of someone you already love and trust, Mio, only 'recoloured' (and she even disses the devs for getting lazy with her design).
  • Goth: Though she seems to be of the Gloomy variety at first glance, it quickly becomes apparent she's more of a Lone Psycho—which is only fitting, given she wants to end the world.
  • Humanoid Abomination: She looks human, but looking into her eyes kills people and she mentions she has different forms.
  • I Shall Taunt You: Oh yes, she shall.
    The Dark One: Do you play video games to hide from your insecurities? Or do you just like working for your spank bank?
  • Inconvenient Attraction: Rather. She wants to destroy the world, after all, and falling for the protagonist doesn't really align with that goal.
  • Love Redeems: To a certain extent. She does eventually decide to leave Earth alone once you reach higher relationship levels with her. Too bad that her finally accepting your love causes her to literally dissolve into nothingness (as can be seen in her Lover photo).
  • Mechanically Unusual Fighter: Unlike the rest of the girls, the Dark One removes hearts over time instead of gaining them.
  • Meta Guy: Like Mio, Nutaku, and Pamu, she's aware that she's in a video game and takes constant potshots at it.
  • Not Afraid to Die: Fond of taunting Ayano.
    The Dark One: I'm going to loosen my shoes and stand near a balcony. Let Ayano know.
    The Dark One: Oh dear. I'm just a helpless, depressed goth chick, I sure hope no one murders me for LOVING SENPAI!
    The Dark One: Actually, if that Yandere chick could go ahead and just take me out now, that would be great.
    The Dark One: Will someone hand Ayano a baseball bat or something and encourage her to follow her dreams?
  • Palette Swap: Of Mio. She's aware of this and hates it
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Has these, and looking her in the eye can kill you.
    • Unless you're Ayano, apparently.
    Ayano: That Darkness Girl stared into my eyes today. But then she seemed to get spooked, and ran away. How strange!

I like the dating! It's all ceremonious and nuanced. Like - oh, you're holding my hand! Are we married now?

Provides examples of:

  • Final Boss: She's the last girl in the game, and getting the ending involves reaching Lover level with every character (including her).
  • First Love: Will say that the protagonist is this to her, as well as her One True Love, and thanks them for showing her what it is like to love before she has to sacrifice herself.
  • Girliness Upgrade: Pamu curses her as soon as she arrives in her Chibi form, turning her into a human-sized fairy in a rather revealing outfit, along with some... enhancements. Though she loses her powers the moment it happens, so 'upgrade' is debatable at best.
  • Happily Ever After: Subverted. Either Pernikiss sacrifices herself, or the protagonist does, leaving her mourning them for the rest of her long, long (possibly immortal) life.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Will do this when she is restored to her full power, to close the portal threatening Earth. Before going, she says that before she met the protagonist, she was determined, but now that she has known true love, it's far more difficult for her. You have the chance to take her place, instead.
  • Identity Amnesia: Struck with this after Pamu's curse. Is particularly mystified by her new body, her breasts specifically.
  • Quest for Identity: The Power of Love, your love, to be specific, will slowly help her recover her memories, and power in the process.
  • The Reveal: While regaining her memories, she casually lets it slip that she's responsible for the first meeting with Cassie, via throwing a pigeon at you and causing the Crash-Into Hello.
  • Self-Sacrifice Scheme: Arrives once the Dark One has gone, with the sole purpose of sacrificing herself by throwing herself into the portal, as only a Being of True Love can close it.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: See Happily Ever After, above.

You can hold my hand if you want to. I do not grasp the implications of such a gesture, but I'm willing to discover them.
