This page lists all characters in Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online, the sixth Spin-Off game of the Neptunia series, and the tropes associated with them. Tropes specific to their portrayal in the other games of the series belong on the pages for those games. Currently under heavy construction.
Beware of unmarked spoilers!
General CPU Tropes
- And Now For Something Completely Different: The main four have changed their normal styles of fighting quite a bit this time around. With Noire and Vert swapping weapons, Blanc going the healer route, and Neptune staying mostly the same.
- Badass Crew: The main four CPUs are back in the forefront again, and fighting as one party in this game.
- Moe Anthropomorphism: Of the current generation of consoles.
- Physical Goddess: Downplayed. They've been physically living in the world for quite some time now, though it may be played straighter than usual considering the game they are playing now.
- Really 700 Years Old: They've been around for quite some time now, though the exact number of years is never made clear. Megadimension Neptunia VII reveals that Neptune and Nepgear, at least, are less than a human lifetime old, as a Muggle who was a young boy during Uzume's rule is still alive, albeit as an old man.
- True Companions: Though it does veer on the side of Vitriolic Best Buds quite a lot, the four CPUs have long since passed the time they were seriously hostile to one another.
Neptune (Purple Heart)
Planeptune's patron CPU and the self-proclaimed "Main Character of Main Characters". Unusually bright and cheerful, and the most optimistic of the four goddesses. She has an odd trait that allows her to break apart any visage of seriousness in a scene or relieve the tension with little issue. In this game she has chosen to be of the Holy Knight class, which makes sense considering her high opinion of herself, and her general behavior throughout the series.
As Purple Heart she is much more calm and collected compared to her normal state, however she still maintains the carefree personality.
- Brilliant, but Lazy: Throughout the series she has had brief moments that make it clear she is more intelligent and thoughtful than her usual attitude makes her appear. But generally her lazy personality makes such moments rare and far between.
- Combat Medic: Her class gives her access to healing skills, while also letting her dish out quite a bit of damage.
- Genki Girl: Her human form acts like this, though she can be more subdued when she wants to be.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: As expected of the one who openly declares herself the main character, she still sticks with a class that prefers swords.
- Jack-of-All-Trades: Her class is noted to be skilled in pretty much everything combat wise.
- Lady of War: Purple Heart's personality has shades of this.
- Magic Knight: Can use magic alongside her physical fighting skills.
- Purple Is Powerful: Always had an emphasis on physical strength.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Pudding of course. She then shares one to Purple Heart in-game and her goddess self starts craving for more.
- White Magic
- Zettai Ryouiki: Has this due to the greaves and skirt combo she is sporting this game.
Noire (Black Heart)
Lastation's patron CPU and the one gifted with the unflattering nickname of "Lonely Heart" by Neptune. She has a very diligent, if elitist, nature and she tries to do everything by herself. Considered a lonely person due to her Tsundere personality, but the fact she often plays with the rest of the CPUs means she isn't actually that much of a loner. In this game she is a spear-wielding Dark Knight, who specializes in close range combat with an emphasis on DPS.
- Blade on a Stick: Her main weapon as a Dark Knight, having apparently traded weapons with Vert for this installment.
- Magically Inept Fighter: One of the two playable characters that don't have elemental or magic based skills.
Blanc (White Heart)
Lowee's patron CPU, on the surface she appears calm and collected at all times, however she actually has quite the temper and one that is very easy to set off. Loves to read and secretly writes in her spare time (though her attempts at selling her work don't go quite well), considers herself the most intelligent of the four goddesses. She's playing this game mostly for inspiration for her own writing, and has taken up the Cleric Class which specializes in healing and supporting the party.
As White Heart her inward temper problems come to the forefront, and she becomes ferocious in both speech and actions.
- A-Cup Angst: Admits to an NPC that she made her avatar's chest slightly larger than her real self, and that she would have gone much bigger if it didn't mean getting made fun of by the other goddesses.
- White Mage: Starts out as one, but quickly becomes...
Vert (Green Heart)
Leanbox's patron CPU and arguably the most mature of the bunch, though she certainly has her moments. Is the eldest looking of the group, and gives off an aura of a big sister to the rest. Though this ironically fuels her own sorrow at not having a little sister like the rest do, and thus she attempts to make one out of any cute girl she takes a liking to. Now that she is in her favorite online game, she is secretly aiming to usurp the role of main character. In this game she is an Enchanter, a hybrid class letting her fight while also providing heals and buffs for the party.
As Green Heart her personality doesn't differ all too much, though she is a bit less forgiving in that form.
- Bridal Carry: Gives one to Blanc in a cutscene, who ends up embarrassed by it.
- Flechette Storm: Her Awakening Special Attack showers the area in front of her with magical spearlike projectiles. Think "Gate of Babylon".
- Royal Rapier: Uses this as her main weapon for the Enchanter class, which might be a not-so-subtle way of showing she's the star of this spin-off.
- Spell Blade: She has spells to enhance the team's weapons with elemental damages.
- Spot of Tea: The "Teach Me Bert" sections are all about her (and occasionally Neptune) giving off trivia about the various kinds of tea and how to best prepare and enjoy them.
General CPU Candidate Tropes
- And Now For Something Completely Different: They have all changed quite a bit in terms of class choice, with Nepgear going from swordsmanship to specializing in spell casting, Uni going the thief route, Ram going for a ninja, and Rom being a warrior class of all things.
- Moe Anthropomorphism: Of gaming handheld devices.
Nepgear (Purple Sister)
Planeptune's CPU Candidate, and Neptune's younger sister, also happens to be a former protagonist which tends to get her mercilessly teased more often than not. She is an Otaku for anything mechanical, though she has a particular fondness for mechs, a very dependable person and often mistaken for the *older* sister. In contrast to her older sister who drags everyone else along for the ride, she prefers to stick to the back and support others. In this game she is of the Mage class.
As Purple Sister she is notable for having no change in her personality, whereas every other character has at least one alteration in their behavior.
- Black Mage: Purely offense-oriented, with every skill she learns being an elemental spell (of the fire, ice, lightning, and wind varieties).
Uni (Black Sister)
Lastation's CPU Candidate, and Noire's younger sister, a person who tries very hard to live up to the standards set by her workaholic sister. An Otaku for anything related to firearms, though not the extent Nepgear is to machines. Much like how her sister is with Neptune, Uni also has a back and forth relationship with Nepgear, though she is slightly less Tsundere about it. In this game she has taken up the Thief class.
As Black Sister she becomes more confident and a bit more belligerent.
- Goggles Do Nothing: In this game, Uni dons goggles. However, she doesn't wear them in the game as her goggles are on her head all the time.
- Guns Akimbo: Her pair of pistols has a quick rate of fire and the longest reaching range for a standard attack.
- Gun Fu: Some of her skills has her perform melee attacks before feeding her target with several bullets.
- Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: The reason why Uni chose to be a Thief because it was the only class that uses guns as weapons. She never tries to use stealth or thieving skills, except the only time she shows off a skill that is related to her class is a hiding skill that is only used once in a cutscene for taking pictures in the game.
Rom (White Sister)
One of Lowee's CPU Candidates, and Blanc's little sister. Shy and timid compared to her sister despite her technically being the older one, has a habit of speaking the emotions she is feeling, which the residents of Lowee find endearing. In this game she is of the Samurai Class.
As White Sister she is less timid, and can properly speak what she wants to say.
- Iaijutsu Practitioner: Her Awakening Special Attack has her sheathe her sword and then pull it out again, creating a massive Sword Beam.
- Magically Inept Fighter: She is one of the two characters that has no elemental or magic skills.
Ram (White Sister)
One of Lowee's CPU Candidates, and Blanc's little sister. She is very lively and mischievous, and likes to drag her sister around for whatever mischief she is up to. Has gotten a bit rowdier lately as Rom has become more independent, and is pretty indiscriminate about who she targets for her pranks. In this game she is of the Ninja class.
As White Sister she is mostly the same, but talks with a sense of responsibility compared to her human self.
- Fuuma Shuriken: Her weapon of choice is a big shuriken which she uses as melee weapon instead of a projectile.
- Highly Visible Ninja: Despite being a Ninja, her play style and skills have nothing to do with the stealth.
- Precision-Guided Boomerang: The boomerang-like properties of her shurikens give her a slightly longer reach compared to the other close ranged units.
General Tropes about the Four Goddesses
- Artificial Intelligence: The Four Goddesses in this game isn't the CPUs transforming, but are AIs based on their transformed states' likeness and in personality.
- Winged Humanoid: All the goddesses have a pair of angelic wings, which symbolizes their divine nature.
The goddess of fate.
- Orgasmically Delicious: When Neptune feeds her pudding, she ends up in ecstasy at how delicious the confectionery is.
The goddess of prosperity.
The goddess of fertility.
- Meet Your Early Installment Weirdness: Since she lack's Vert's sister obsession and is based on Vert's more serious and responsible personality traits, any scene where she talks to Vert feels like Vert talking to her pre-Characterization Marches On self.
The goddess of order.
Plutia (Iris Heart)
Peashy (Yellow Heart)
- Achievements in Ignorance: Her barter shop (which she generally accepts shiny things or things she likes as payment) somehow managed to get ahold to several extremely rare items. Arfoire and Warechu is kind of scared how she managed to do it and tries to keep distance as a result. She also managed to get the wish-granting spirit at the pond to actually appear despite every other players' failures.
Uzume Tennouboshi (Orange Heart)
- Voiced by: Mariko Honda (Japanese), Erica Lindbeck (English)
- Heroes Gone Fishing: Takes the trope more literally, with her picking up fishing as a hobby. So much so that she ends up getting a super rare pet that can only be gotten if you solely devote yourself to fishing.
- Ms. Imagination: Averted. It's outright stated that this version of her doesn't daydream like her counterparts.
- Voiced by: Chiaki Takahashi (Japanese)
- Go-Karting with Bowser: One of the very few times Arfoire is not out to do anything evil, she just wants to farm and make a living off her eggplants.
- The Voiceless: In English, since none of the scenes in which she appears are dubbed.
- Throw the Dog a Bone: It helps that she's not a villain here, but she does finally get something nice for herself, namely her attempts to grow and sell eggplants, despite initially being a failure, picked up a massive boom due to the fact that it unlocks a secret boss fight (since the game properly modeled Neptune's hatred of eggplants for AI Purple Heart).
- Voiced by: Neeko (Japanese)
- Adaptation Species Change: Since there's no mouse race in the game, his appearance in-game is that of a human wearing mouse costume.
- The Voiceless: In English, since none of the scenes in which he appears are dubbed.
Kiria (real name Kazuko)
- Bifauxnen: It's very easy to mistake her for a man at first glance. Her real life acquaintance remarks that she looks better in cute dress than her bifauxnen looks in-game.
- Expy: She's essentially a port of Hiyori Kashiwazaka's Kuro avatar.
- Extreme Doormat: For a majority of the story, she lets Kuronekohime / Black Cat Princess bully, manipulate, and push her around. It is implied that she had let her do this to her in a previous game as well despite Kuronekohime / Black Cat Princess showing often times that she is a Manipulative Bastard.
Kuronekohime / Black Cat Princess
- Voiced by: Ayano Yamamoto (Japanese), Kayli Mills (English)
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Puts up a facade of being lovey-dovey with Kiria but prefers to sucker people in and use them.
- Cats Are Mean: She may look all cute and innocent, but she's actually a jerk who bullies and hurts other players.
- Cheaters Never Prosper: Tries to cheat with Kiria to become more powerful than everyone else... it backfires spectacularly.
- Expy: of Accel World's Kuroyukihime.
- Heel Realization: She finally realizes by the end of the game how much her behavior is actively hurting other people in the game, and accepts her account's permaban without problem along with Kiria.
- It's All About Me: Starts to shed her fake self and eventually shows she wants everyone to praise her and treat her like a goddess. It is heavily hinted her attitude is the reason a guild in an older game eventually disbanded was due to her toxic attitude.
- Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Bullies other players and in an optional cutscene says she wants to dump Kiria because she is starting to find her boring and does not like others seeing her as weak whatsoever.
- Voiced by: Aya Uchida (Japanese), Ryan Bartley (English)
- Brick Joke: It took until Vert actually decided to create her own ideal little sister for her to even possibly get one.
- Expy: of Sword Art Online's Yui, with both being fully functional AI in a game world.
- Marshmallow Hell: She gets hugged facefirst into Vert's ample chest.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Compiles the antivirus in order to destroy Cheetah (since they're based on the same code) and unleash it, which would have resulted in her death if the GM didn't patch her program to survive in time.
Grim ReaperAn rumored boss that are killing players out of nowhere and impeding players from making progress with the story
CheetahKiria and Black Cat Princess's fusion form that they used to PK other players, which is normally impossible to do since the game doesn't support PVP combat. Cheetah turns out to be combat AI made by Mine in order to destabilize and destroy 4GO, and it being used by Kiria and Black Cat Princess is mainly to train up its combat algorithm.
- Dragon-in-Chief: After Mine completes its algorithm, made it independent of Kiria and Black Cat Princess, and sets it loose, she ends up losing control of it after she tries to stop Cheetah and it still tries to destroy the game after Mine stops trying to do so. The CPUs have to fight it in person instead.
- Pun: Its name is pun of "cheater".
The main GM of the game.
- The Alleged Boss: Not that she's bad at being engineer by any means, especially consider later when she fought in hacking duel with Mine, but as a player, she, and the other GMs, are really not up to par. This cause problems when Mine triggered monster to attack the main city and she couldn't just put the game in emergency maintenance due to Mine's interference, resulting in her having to ask other players including the CPUs to help fight them off.
Robed Figure/MineA mysterious person in black robe who keeps trying to sell cheat tools to other players. Turns out to be a former CEO/game designer of a rival game company to Weiss that wants to destroy the game after the popularity of 4GO results in her game dropping in popularity and eventually causing her company to shut down.
- Big Bad
- The Cracker: Being a former game engineer gives her considerable skill at understanding and subverting game systems. The GM is more skilled at countering her, however, which eventually results in her loss.
- Cry Cute: She broke down in tears when, after all problems she cause, Vert reveals she has fond memories of her game and her as a player, and CPUs are still willing to hire her.
- It's All About Me: What caused her personal and company's downfall. She was far more focused on putting only what she wanted and thought was good for her game versus accepting input and ideas from the other developers and players. Overlaps with Never My Fault when she ends up blaming 4GO for her losses. She gets better.
