Shana

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_shana.png
The Flame-Haired Burning-Eyed Hunter

Voiced by: Rie Kugimiya

The Flame Haze of Alastor. Her title is the "Flame-Haired Burning-Eyed Hunter" and her mission is to destroy the Crimson Denizens who feed on humans. She wields Nietono no Shana and loves melon bread.

An all-around character who defeats her opponents with flame-based techniques. With fast-moving projectiles and far-reaching moves that can catch her opponents off-guard, her arsenal of powerful but easy-to-use moves lets her take on any opponent.


  • Badass Adorable
  • Catchphrase: "Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!" Shana should trademark it.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Alastor, the Crimson God Shana made a contract with, is completely absent in this game. He never really "shows up" in the game per se to provide comments on the battles, and it is revealed in Shana's Arcade Mode that he has mysteriously "disappeared" and Shana is unable to communicate with him. Even though technically speaking, Alastor still resides in Shana's body and should still be able to communicate with her via the Cocytus. So the reason for his absence isn't really justified and just raises further questions.
  • Flaming Sword: Her fighting style; She can enchant her sword with fire, and shoot fire from it.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Pit Taiga against Shana in a Dream Duel and witness Shana (understandably) mistake Taiga as a grade school kid. Keep in mind that the light novel series Shana had originally come from describes her as a small girl whose body resembles that of an eleven year old's. Bonus points for both of them being voiced by the same person.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: In terms of both fighting style and stats, Shana is a well-balanced character with no major advantages and disadvantages, making her fighting style easy to pick up and master for beginners. Her Trump Card is also well-suited to newcomers, as it grants a regenerating meter for Climax Arts.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Her Weapon of Choice, Nietono no Shana.
  • Limit Break:
    • Guren no Souyoku - Shana leaps into the air and performs a dive attack while being covered in flames.
    • Kessen Ougi - Shana starts off the attack by performing Shinku, and with additional commands, does the following: strikes the opponent with Hien, then freezes him/her in place using Shinpan, and then finishes the attack with a large stream of flames.
  • Older Than They Look: Flame Hazes don't age. When Shana discovers that Taiga is actually in high school, she automatically pins this phenomenon on being a Flame Haze despite the fact that Taiga isn't even remotely supernatural.
  • Playing with Fire
  • Power Fist: Shana's Impact Skill Shinku has her grab her opponent in one made of fire.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: This isn't lost on Shizuo, who notes that her eyes and katana cause him to believe that she's possessed by Saika.
  • Shown Their Work: Her Climax Arts, Kessen Ougi is a recreation of her moves from the final battle of the light novel.
  • Sword Beam: Her Hien move conjures a crescent-shaped flame projectile from her sword which can strike opponents from a distance.
  • Tsundere: One of the Trope Codifiers and also the Trope Maker of her very own type of Tsundere personality.

Asuna

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_asuna.png
The Flash

Voiced by: Haruka Tomatsu

The sub-leader of the Knights of the Blood, the strongest guild in Aincrad. Her nickname is "The Flash" due to her speed with her rapier, Lambent Light. Kirito is her boyfriend.

Known for her blinding speed, she is a graceful and agile fighter, with many moves that are hard to follow at close range.


  • Action Girl
    • Action Mom: Yui, Asuna's in-game daughter, comes to give Asuna a victory hug.
  • Death of a Thousand Cuts: Asuna also follows this playstyle, although less so than Kirito.
  • Fail O'Suckyname: Kirino's opinion on the title "Knights of the Blood", Asuna's SAO guild.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: Kirito often mentions that her cooking is legendary.
  • Fighting Your Friend: Both Kirito and Asuna were surprised that they have to fight each other.
    Kirito: Asuna...? What's the meaning of this?!
    Asuna: So we've gotta... fight each other?
  • Happily Married: To Kirito during the first arc. It's only according to the game mechanics, but the emotional commitment is still there. They plan to get married for real when they escape the game (and are old enough...)
  • I Know Mortal Kombat
  • Limit Break:
  • Name's the Same: Kirino and Asuna both have an Impact Skill named Shooting Star. Asuna and Yuuki both also have Mother's Rosario as a Climax, but the latter is known as "Original Sword Skill: Mother's Rosario", since Yuuki was its original creator.
  • Royal Rapier: Her Weapon of Choice, the Lambent Light.
  • Shown Their Work: Her Trump Card, Tekken Seisai is based off Asuna's reaction to Kirito asking to "spend the night together". While her Climax Art, Mother's Rosario is also based off a description of an attack described in the light novel to be "of god-like speed, with five strikes from the upper right, five strikes from the upper left, and a single thrust at the point they meet."
  • Shoryuken: Her Trump Card, Tekken Seisai.
  • Super Speed: The reason she earns the nickname "The Flash".

Mikoto Misaka

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_misaka.png
The Railgun

Voiced by: Rina Sato

A student at Tokiwadai Junior High School, she's an Electromaster who has earned the nickname "Railgun". She's one of only 7 high-powered Espers (Level 5) in Academy City.

A versatile character with fast attacks that utilize electricity. She can fight either close up or at range with her various attacks, and crush opponents with her extremely long range railgun attack.


  • Badass Adorable
  • Extra Oredinary: Mikoto also has control over magnetism which can allow her to manipulate iron sand into blades to use in battle, and also attract metallic rubble to throw at her opponents.
  • From a Certain Point of View: Mikoto stretches the definition of "little sister" quite a bit when she refers to Kuroko as one in the technical sense.
  • Hypocritical Humor: If Mikoto fights Shizuo, Mikoto calls Shizuo out on throwing vending machines, which is in one of Shizuo's EX Attacks. Shizuo immediately fires back by calling out Mikoto on kicking vending machines, which is her Trump Card attack.
    Mikoto: A vending machine isn't something you throw!
    Shizuo: It's not something you kick either!
  • Limit Break:
    • Railgun - Her signature attack. Mikoto fires an electrically-charged coin at high speed which does massive damage on impact.
    • Mikoto Special - Mikoto attacks her opponent multiple times with iron sand and then finishes by throwing steel girders at him/her using magnetism.
  • Shock and Awe: Her trademark, of course. She can control electricity in a variety of ways, including creating arcing lighting bolts, bolts that travel across the ground, or magnetically attracting rubble to herself to increase her airtime. She can even charge up her power to perform her signature "Railgun" attack.
  • Shown Their Work: Her Trump Card, Chaser!, references a scene where Mikoto kicks a vending machine to force it to dispense a can of drink. It's too fast to catch, but it does indeed dispense a drink, and some of the drinks are even flavors from the light novel.
  • Tsundere: When Asuna asks Mikoto if she has feelings for Touma, her face goes red and she just denies everything.

Kirino Kousaka

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_kirino.png
8th Grader Overachiever

Series: Oreimo
Voiced by: Ayana Taketatsu

An 8th grade overachiever, she's beautiful, smart and athletic... but she has a twisted interest in R-rated video games. She has a cold relationship with her brother, Kyosuke.

With fast moves and various cosplays, Kirino has an over-the-top and outrageous fighting style. She makes sport of her opponents with her perky-yet-unpredictable moves and rushing attacks.


  • Adaptational Badass:
  • Badass Adorable
  • Badass Armfold: Kirino's default pose is this, and since she's comparable to other fighters in terms of skill, it's actually badass.
  • Badass Normal: Kirino can hold her own against powerful and supernatural fighters like a Flame Haze, a Level 5 Esper, a Magician, two skilled VRMMO players, a Burst Linker, a martial artist and a Valkyria with nothing but every day traits and items from her series. She also have ARKS weaponry and a claw machine at her disposal.
  • Cosplay Otaku Girl: Kirino, who weaponizes cosplay. She transforms into a variety of cosplay outfits when she uses her attacks, and her Ranbu is simply her performing one long auto-combo of rapidly shifting cosplay outfits.
  • Cuteness Overload: Kirino's reaction to Shana. Shana is completely unamused.
  • I Know Madden Kombat: Her aerial special move has her spikes a beach ball, complete with a swimsuit.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Her Special Move, Misplaced Anger has her throwing random everyday itemsnote  at her opponent.
  • Incest Subtext: Kirino interprets Miyuki's love for Tatsuya as this. When Miyuki asks Kirino about her love for Kyousuke in return, she falters, then her inner tsundere kicks in.
  • Kick Them While They Are Down: Her Trump Card, Life Consultation. She knocks down the opponent, then proceeds to mount them and slap them across the face.
  • Limit Break:
    • Claw Machine Mutilation - Kirino drops a claw machine on her opponent which traps him/her inside said machine. Kirino then takes control and picks him/her up with the claw.
    • Shin Cosplay Ranbu - Kirino performs a series of attacks with various cosplay costumes each too fast to catch normally without pausing, and then finishes by throwing what appears to be a bomb of sorts which explodes on her opponent.
  • Name's the Same: Kirino and Asuna both have an Impact Skill named Shooting Star.
  • Punny Name: Kirino's Impact Skill, Amazon Upper is a play on both "amazon", the race of Action Girls, and "Amazon", the online shipping company. The attack itself is a Shoryuken that starts with Kirino crouching over a mail order package. Averted in English versions, which call it Net-Purchase Uppercut.
  • Running Gag: Kirino has a thing for little sisters. She's particularly jealous about Mikoto having 20,000 of them.
  • Shoryuken: Her Impact Skill, Amazon Upper.
  • Shown Their Work: All of Kirino's outfits are outfits she wore in the light novel. Claw Machine Mutiliation's SFX were also imported directly from the latest UFO Catchers, courtesy of SEGA.
  • Shout-Out: The finishing attack for Kirino's Ranbu has her smack the opponent across the stage with a Fossil Victor. There's even a figurine dedicated solely to this move.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: One of the random items she throws in her move Misplaced Anger happens to be her own laptop that's somehow rigged to explode. It will damage the opponent if he/she is standing near it.

Shizuo Heiwajima

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_shizuo.png
Ikebukuro's God of Destruction

Series: Durarara!!
Voiced by: Daisuke Ono

A debt collector who dresses like a bartender. He hates violence, but when he loses his temper, he's the strongest man in Ikebukuro. Flying vending machines are a clue that he's around.

A power-type character who beats his opponents into submission with brutal attacks. He unleashes dynamic strikes with long range, allowing you to pressure your opponent. He even has moves involving road signs and guardrails.


Kuroyukihime

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_kuroyukihime.png
Black Lotus

Series: Accel World
Voiced by: Sachika Misawa

The Umezato Jr. High student council V.P. She's nicknamed Kuroyukihime, or "Snow Black", because of her beauty. Her Brain Burst avatar is known as Black Lotus, and she is Legion Master of the Nega Nebulas.

A technical character that prioritizes reach and power. The offensive strength of Black Lotus is difficult to defend against, giving her an advantage on the battlefield.


  • Assist Character: Black Lotus functions as this for Kuroyukihime and does most of the fighting for her, as she is largely incapable of actual combat, except maybe some jabs and weak attacks. Think of it as a JoJo character.
  • Counter Attack: Her Impact Skill, Jyuhou Toshin.
  • Difficult, but Awesome: Maximizing Kuroyukihime's potential requires utilizing Black Lotus' great offensive tools to control space and more importantly, make up for her own poor melee attacks.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Invoked in the Yukina vs Kuroyukihime Dream Duel pre-battle dialogue. Yukina calls out Kuroyukihime for wearing such a skimpy outfit as her avatar's costume and is appalled just by looking at it. Unfazed, Kuroyukihime then goes on to justify her avatar's outfit by saying that her costume's tight fit is for practical reasons and goes on to stoically defend further. She then turns the argument around by pointing out how impractical Yukina's short skirt is in battle and complains because Kuroyukihime keeps getting a glimpse of her panties every time she jumps. Yukina angrily stutters in embarrassment afterwards in response.
    Yukina: T-that outfit?! How obscene!
  • Limit Break:
    • Death By Embracing - The screen suddenly turns white as Black Lotus appears behind Kuroyukihime's opponent and slashes him/her in a single strike.
    • Starburst Stream - Kuroyukihime fires a barrage of laser beams and then finishes with a dual Sword Beam attack. This Climax Art is completely different from Kirito's Starburst Stream.
  • Name's the Same: In-universe, both Kirito and Kuroyukihime have a Climax named Starburst Stream.
  • Readings Are Off the Scale: Mikoto misinterpret Kuroyukihime's Burst Linker Level as this.
    Kuroyukihime: You hold this much power, and yet you're only Level 5... What frightening potential. Very well. In that case, as a Level 9, allow me to fight you using my utmost strength.
    Mikoto: Level... 9!? Just who are you!?Explanation 
  • Running Gag: Several characters make a point of calling out Kuroyukihime's "rather interesting" choice of wear.
  • Status Buff: Her Trump Card Overdrive increases her stats and attack combos for the duration. It comes in three modes which can be individually selected by tilting the control stick in a set direction upon activation. Mode Blue (forward) increases attack power, Mode Green (down) increases defense, and Mode Red (backward) increases attack range with the added ability to wall bounce. Activating the Trump Card with no input from the control stick however will select one of the modes at random.
  • Stripperiffic

Tomoka Minato

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_minatotomoka.png
Shiny Gift

Series: Ro-Kyu-Bu!
Voiced by: Kana Hanazawa

A basketball ace at Keishin Academy. Her mother does traditional dance and her father is a tea master, so her manners are naturally impeccable. But when she starts to play basketball...

Tomoka fights with tricky basketball moves along with the other four students from Keishin Academy. Whether shooting into hoops that appear out of nowhere, or changing her opponents into basketballs, she's all about footwork and finesse. There's even a move styled after Japanese traditional dancing.


  • Adaptational Badass: Her fighting style is a reference to her playing basketball, and can also use other items in battle, such as her handbag, paper fans, or a mop and bucket. .
  • Assist Character: Tomoka is also capable of summoning the rest of her team for attacks.
  • Badass Adorable
  • Be the Ball: Tomoka does this to opponents.
  • Fatal Fireworks: Aside from the non-lethal ones in the bucket she pulls out during her normal crouch attack, one of Tomoka's special moves aptly named Fireworks has her pass the ball to one of her teammates named Maho, who then shoots it into the hoop to create a spectacular fireworks display. This damages her opponent within the hoop's vicinity and causes him/her to bounce around a few times per hit.
  • Handbag of Hurt: Attacks with a handbag during her grab attack and Impact Break. She also starts her Climax Art Ro-Kyu-Bu! by whacking her opponent with the handbag first.
  • I Know Madden Kombat: She fights with the help of her team and shooting hoops. Much of her moveset consists of throwing basketballs into hoops that deal damage, or turning the opponent into a basketball and shooting them through hoops.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Aside from basketballs, Tomoka also fights with a handbag, a mop, traditional Japanese fans, fireworks of the non-lethal variety, and a parasol.
  • Kill It with Ice: One of Tomoka's special moves named Ice Age has her pass the ball to one of her teammates named Saki, who then throws it into a hoop to freeze it into a block of ice. The frozen hoop then falls directly onto her opponent from above.
  • Limit Break:
    • Shiny Gift - Tomoka turns her opponent into a basketball, runs as she bounces the ball around, and then throws him/her into an offscreen hoop complete with a brilliant display of pink angel wings. It's basically a more stronger and cinematic version of her Impact Skill.
    • Ro-Kyu-Bu! - Tomoka hits her opponent with a handbag and then all of her teammates will come in and perform their actions on the opponent. The attack finishes with the girls doing a team pose as RO-KYU-BU! is displayed.
  • Mistaken for Pedophile: Subaru from Ro-Kyu-Byu. While he doesn't appear in person in the game itself, Kirino, in the dialogue before her Dream Duel with Tomoka, got really suspicious the moment Tomoka mentions that Subaru was a high school guy who volunteered to coach her and her elementary school-aged friends in basketball. Tomoka's vague description of him to Kirino probably didn't help his case.
  • Paper Fan of Doom: Uses traditional Japanese fans in her weak attack and Impact Skill.
  • Parasol of Pain: In her strong aerial attack, she pulls out a traditional Japanese parasol.
  • Shown Their Work: The finishing pose of her Climax Art, Ro-Kyu-Bu!, is a recreation of the pose the team's voice actresses make when they perform live.
  • Shoryuken: Her Impact Skill, Dancing Playday - Anti-Air.
  • Token Mini-Moe: When compared to the rest of the roster, Tomoka is this because she's the shortest character and the most Moe looking of the bunch. She's even shorter than Shana and Taiga.note 

Kirito

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_kirito_0.png
The Black Swordsman

A legendary Sword Art Online player known as the "The Black Swordsman". With his duel-wielding sword style, he was the first to clear SAO. Asuna is his girlfriend, and Leafa is his younger sister.

Just like the original novel, he fights with his beloved longsword, Elucidator. When he activates his Extra Skill: "Dual Wielding", he draws his other sword, Dark Repulser, as well.


  • Alien Lunch: When Shana laments the lack of melon bread in Sword Art Online, Kirito reassures her that Asuna can recreate it with the proper ingredients. He then proceeds to list off a series of monster drops found in an average Fetch Quest. Shana is subtly, yet absolutely horrified.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Taiga and Kirito's interaction.
    Kirito: I won't go easy on you in that case... shorty!
    Taiga: ... What did you call me?!
    Kirito: Woah?! Did a tiger just appear behind her? So the sword DOES have hidden powers!
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Shizuo almost mistakes Kirito for Izaya, who also wears all black. Until Kirito explains that just because someone wears all black, doesn't mean they're a bad person.
  • Death Is Cheap: Kirito makes this observation about Brain Burst compared to Sword Art Online's All Deaths Final scenario. Kuroyukihime acknowledges this fact, but also notes that the threat of losing the ability to Brain Burst isn't much different from the threat of dying, as in SAO.
  • Death of a Thousand Cuts: Kirito is fueled by this playstyle, as his attacks are very weak individually, but he hits a lot. When he adds Dark Repulser into the mix with his Trump Card, this trope goes straight into Up to Eleven.
  • Dual Wield: Kirito normally only wields his trademark Elucidator, but once he activates his Trump Card, Extra Skill: Dual Wielding, he equips Dark Repulser using his Dual Wield skill, which dramatically changes his attack style and drastically increases his overall damage for the effect's duration.
  • Fighting Your Friend: Both Kirito and Asuna were surprised that they have to fight each other.
    Kirito: Asuna...? What's the meaning of this?!
    Asuna: So we've gotta... fight each other?
  • Happily Married: To Asuna during the first arc. It's only according to the game mechanics, but the emotional commitment is still there. They plan to get married for real when they escape the game (and are old enough...)
  • Heroes Prefer Swords
  • I Know Mortal Kombat
  • Limit Break:
  • Name's the Same: In-universe, both Kirito and Kuroyukihime have a Climax named Starburst Stream.
  • Parrying Bullets: When Kirito and Rentarou meet, Kirito manages to block Rentarou's bullets with his sword. When asked how he was able to do this, Kirito just explains that he had experience from a previous game. Explanation 
    Rentarou: You stopped my bullet with a sword...? Are you serious!?
    Kirito: When it comes to fighting gun users, I've had a little experience in a previous game. It's thanks to that experience that I've made it this far.
  • Rare Random Drop: In-Universe, Kirito thinks Shana's Nietono no Shana and Yukina's Sekkarou are this. When he and Yukina meet, he wonders to himself if he can sell the Sekkarou for a high price on the market for its "negate magic" debuff properties.
  • Running Gag: Kirito asks about "rare weapons" quite a bit.
  • Shown Their Work: His Trump Card Extra Skill: Dual Wielding additionally grants Kirito the ability to auto-string attacks by Button Mashing, which represents his Skill Connect from Alfhiem Online.

Miyuki Shiba

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_miyuki.png
The Snow Queen

Voiced by: Saori Hayami

The younger sister of the Shiba siblings and the top in her freshman class. She's one of the "Blooms" and her specialty is Cold Magic.Her one weak point is her rather extreme brother complex.

Her fighting style revolves around using her magic to freeze and immobilize her opponents. She has moves with wide areas of effect, allowing her to strike at a distance. When she rushes down her opponent, it almost looks as if she is dancing.


Taiga Aisaka

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_taiga.png
Palm-top Tiger

Series: Toradora!
Voiced by: Rie Kugimiya

Although adorable, her rather unpleasant personality has earned her the nickname “Palm-top Tiger". Even though she acts tough, she's actually quite clumsy and a bit of a crybaby.

She fights with whatever's close at hand, from school microphones to desk chairs. With all the ferocity you'd expect from the "Palm-top Tiger", she attacks with sleds and other powerful moves. Depending on the button you use though, she may even fall off. She's pretty careless.


Yukina Himeragi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_yukina.png
Observer of the Fourth Progenitor

Voiced by: Risa Taneda

A Sword Shaman sent from the Lion King organization to observe the Fourth Progenitor.An underclassman of Kojyo's, she uses a lance called Sekkarou that can destroy even an elder vampire.

With the long reach afforded by her lance, Sekkarou, and her close range spell skills, she's a well-balanced character.


  • Blade on a Stick: Her Weapon of Choice, the Sekkarou.
  • Dangerously Short Skirt
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: Yukina's Sekkarou has the ability to negate magic. This does not affect any fights with magical characters such as Shana or Miyuki, although it does negate Reflect Guard.
  • Limit Break:
    • STRIKE THE BLOOD - Yukina uppercuts her opponent with her lance which is followed by a cut-in of her performing an incantation. She then does the same uppercut attack with the magically-buffed lance for massive damage.
    • Sacred Howling - Yukina strikes her opponent multiple times with her lance and then zooms across the stage before finishing with an aerial dive.
  • Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: Whenever they were paired up with each other.
    Kojou: Alright, shall we get started? This is my fight!
    Yukina: No, Senpai. This is our fight!
  • Shoryuken: Her Climax Art, STRIKE THE BLOOD opens with this.

Rentarou Satomi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_rentaro.png
Protector of the Cursed Children

Series: Black Bullet
Voiced by: Yuuki Kaji

A Promoter at the Civil Security Corp. who fights the Gastrea parasites along with the Initiator, Enju.He's crazy about bugs and is called "Sad Face" by those around him.

Rentarou is a power-type character who uses his XD handgun and Tendo Combat Style. Blindingly quick melee attacks with seemingly instantaneous power up are responsible for his explosive strength.


  • Art Shift: Rentarou, along with Enju, are the biggest examples of this than any other character in the roster. Compare his original rough light novel design to his more clear and streamlined design in the anime.
  • Artificial Limbs: He has a prosthetic leg and arm. They're only visible during his Climax Art Inzen Kokutei Unlimited Burst.
  • Chick Magnet: Unwillingy. Due to his Friend to All Children status in his home series, he has the tendency to attract loli-types all the time. He even makes a remark about this if you pit him against Tomoka.
    Rentarou: "Why am I surrounded by all these tiny titans!?"
    Tomoka: "But, I-I just play a little basketball..."
  • Close-Range Combatant: He's primarily this, with only a few of his attacks where he pulls out his XD handgun for long-range strikes.
  • Gratuitous English: In one of his victory quotes, he exclaims "I-I'll be back!".
  • The Gunslinger: Wields an XD pistol in combat, which he uses to fire Varanium bullets.
  • Handguns: His Weapon of Choice, the XD handgun.
  • Knife Nut: His medium attacks have him brandish a black-bladed knife.
  • Limit Break:
    • Inzen Kokutei Unlimited Burst - Rentarou shoots his opponent with his XD handgun, reveals his Artificial Limbs, and then does a punch and uppercut combo before finishing with an overhead kick.
    • Final Strike - Rentarou tackles his opponent with Kohaku Tensei, uppercuts him/her three times with Unebiko Ryuu, and then finishes with a roundhouse kick.
  • Not So Different: Mikoto points out that Rentarou and Touma are actually very similar characters. The thought of it is enough to make Rentarou cry.
  • Real Men Cook: Conversed with Asuna in their Dream Duel scenario dialogue.
  • Shoryuken: One of his Impact Skills, Unebiko Ryu, is a two-hit uppercut.
  • Shown Their Work: His Climax Arts, Inzen Kokutei Unlimited Burst and Final Strike are recreations of combos Rentarou performed in the light novel.
  • Status Buff: His Trump Card Terminal Horizon increases the speed of his attacks and combos for the duration, and also grants him a gradual Climax Gauge increase much like an Escape Blast.

Akira Yuuki

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_akira.png
Ultimate Martial Artist

Voiced by: Shin-ichiro Miki

The fierce Hakkyoku-ken fighter on a journey to become the strongest warrior in the world. He longs to find a worthy opponent, and he's never been seen without his trusty hachimaki.

Akira joins from SEGA's iconic 3D fighting game, Virtua Fighter. A number of his moves are taken from the original game and remade to fit this game's engine, making him a versatile close-range fighter.


  • Badass Normal: Lacks the anime-inspired flair of his opponents, including fellow Sega representative Selvaria, and fights with nothing but his martial arts skills. The boost in power he gets is not unlike the one a fellow fighting game hero receives when he fights superhumans from other universes.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: Akira Yuuki, being a fighting game character, is the only member of the playable cast who fights purely with this style.
  • Guest Fighter: One of two characters not from Dengeki Bunko, but from Sega, representing Virtua Fighter. Selvaria would follow him later.
  • Final Boss: Of the original Arcade version, in a sense. The game's main antagonist simply manifests himself as Akira.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Akira Yuuki sticks out from the crowd for the sheer fact that he's actually a fighting game character. His moveset is influenced as such, and bears semblance to many standard fighting game moves and famous moves ripped directly from Virtua Fighter.
    • Not to mention, like several other characters who practice Asian martial arts, he's got several techniques ripped straight from Chinese martial arts commonly seen in those types of video games.
  • Limit Break:
    • Hougeki Unshin Soukoshou (Crumbling Strike Cloud Body Twin Tiger Palm) - Akira strikes his opponent twice with his martial arts moves and then finishes with a Kamehame Hadouken. Just like in Virtua Fighter, kanji is displayed each time he strikes his opponent.
    • Yuuki-Ryuu Hakkyokuken Hiden: Houzan (Yuuki-Style Eight Polar Fist Secret Transmit: Crumbling Mountain) - Akira does a punch/kick combo and then punches his opponent several times before finishing with a palm uppercut.
  • Shoryuken: Renkantai (Linkage Thigh) is very unique: One is for QCF+C (which bounce the opponent on the corner), while the air version has variation ranges (such as EX).
  • Shotoclone: A variant of sorts, albeit lacking on a Kamehame Hadouken equivalent. Ironically, he's very easy to pick up and play; a far cry from his Difficult, but Awesome portrayal in both Virtua Fighter and Dead Or Alive 5. Despite which, he boasts one of the larger movesets in the game due to his individual special motions have different moves performed with different attack strengths.

Selvaria Bles

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_selvaria.png
The War Witch of the Empire

Voiced by: Sayaka Ohara

One of the Drei Stern, she has sworn absolute loyalty to Maximilian. The blood of the Valkyria flows in her veins, and with her shield and lance, her military power rivals that of an entire army.

Selvaria joins from SEGA's active battle simulation game, Valkyria Chronicles. Her heavy, powerful attacks are dangerous even at a distance, and she can use her "After-Image" ability to move swiftly on the battlefield.

Wilhelmina Carmel

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_wilhelmina.png
Manipulator of Objects

Voiced by: Shizuka Ito

A Flame Haze with the title of "Manipulator of Objects". She took care of Shana when she was young and is always dressed in maid clothing. Though quite strong, she's a horrible cook.

Binds the opponent with a delayed homing bandage attack. If it connects, it stops the opponent dead in their tracks for a short time, giving you an opening for some huge damage.


  • Bandage Babe: Wilhelmina uses ribbons as weapons. In her forward support, she can trap the opponent in a ball made of ribbons and leave him/her vulnerable to the player's attacks.
  • Meido
  • Verbal Tic: ~de arimasu. You will here her end her attack phrases with this, just like in her home series.

Leafa

The Sylph Sister of ALfheim Online

Voiced by: Ayana Taketatsu

Younger sister of "The Black Swordsman", her real name is Suguha Kirigaya. She is a strong player participating as a Sylph in the SAO-based next-gen VRMMO, "ALfheim Online".

Quickly zooms in close and lands an attack that sends the opponent flying. The wide area of her attack makes her a good support for practically any character.


  • Blow You Away: When Leafa is called to perform her Neutral Support, she summons a gust of wind magic that throws the opponent into the air, which opens them up for air combos.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords
  • I Know Mortal Kombat: Practices kendou outside of her virtual gaming experiences, and has done so before she even touched video games.

Touma Kamijo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_touma.png
The One Who Purifies God

Voiced by: Atsushi Abe

A student living in Academy City, he has a strong sense of justice and wields the Imagine Breaker in his right hand, which can negate all supernatural and magic abilities.

Appears in front of you and nullifies incoming attacks with an ability that has both defensive and countering properties. While he can be a bit tricky to use, he's quite effective.


  • Badass Normal: Aside from his Imagine Breaker, Touma possess no special powers of his own and is capable of beating his opponents simply by punching the crap out of them.
  • Dynamic Entry: Touma's forward support has him lunge forward upon being summoned to punch his opponent in the same manner he would normally do in his home series.
  • No-Sell: His Imagine Breaker. It will stop any attack in its tracks, including Climaxes, and stops opponents from approaching directly by dealing minor damage and blasting them on contact. The player summoning him just has to make sure he doesn't get hit anywhere else.

Kuroneko

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_kuroneko.png
Fallen Saint Of A Thousand Leaves

Series: Oreimo
Voiced by: Kana Hanazawa

A girl that Kirino Kousaka met in an online otaku group. She has a serious case of 8th Grader Syndrome and dresses in Goth Lolita style. Socially insecure, but great at fighting games.

Sends a blast of rose petals across a wide area. She's a bit slow to start up, so you'll need to learn the timing of using her. There's also a small chance she'll become the Holy Angel Kamineko when you call her out, vastly increasing her effectiveness.


  • Adaptational Badass
  • Counter Attack: Kuroneko's Forward Support creates a magic glyph around the player who called her; if the player is attacked while this is active, any knockback the player would've taken is negated and the player is instead shot straight into the air. If the opponent happens to be standing next to the glyph when it triggers, it also launches the opponent straight up and deals an equivalent amount of damage. The glyph also negates attacks if the player is hit in the middle of a Climax. The player has to watch Kuroneko though, since if she is attacked, the glyph disperses.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: In two different possible outfits.
  • Petal Power: Kuroneko's neutral support has her attack the opponent with rose petals.

Celty Sturluson

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_celty.png
Headless Rider

Series: Durarara!!
Voiced by: Miyuki Sawashiro

Called the "Headless Rider", she is a Dullahan spirit that rides a black motorcycle. She lives with a back-alley doctor, earns money as a courier, and is in search for her missing head.

Appears suddenly on her motorcycle and blitzes through the battlefield. She's an ambush-type character, and makes a good fit for both offensive and defensive roles.


  • Car Fu: She attacks by ramming her opponents with her bike.
  • Cool Bike: One that is actually possessed by the spirit of her horse.
  • Death from Above: Celty's Forward Support makes her fall from the sky on her bike to land on the ground in front of the player. If the opponent happens to be there, they'll get smushed too.
  • Headless Horseman: She is a modernized version of a Dullahan of Sleepy Hollow fame.

Haruyuki "Haru" Arita

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_arita.png
Silver Crow

Series: Accel World
Voiced by: Yuuki Kaji

A student at Umezato Jr. High and a frequent bully victim. In Accelerated World, he controls Silver Crow, the only Duel Avatar capable of flying. He's a member of the Black Legion, Nega Nebulas.

Comes flying in from the sky with a fierce downward attack. It's a pretty big move so it takes time to set up, but the payoff is a very powerful attack.


  • Acrofatic: In a sense, yes, and at the same time, subverted. In the real world, Haru is a really short and pudgy guy, and his standard avatar in the Accelerated World is a small pudgy pig. It's only in his Duel Avatar where he comes off as a badass fighter with a standard frame.
  • Cyber Cyclops: His duel avatar Silver Crow. Though it's actually a visor covering a proper face.
  • Death from Above: Haru's neutral support has him dive down from the sky to strike his opponent. It has a bit of a start-up time though, and white feathers are a clue that he's about to strike. Not to mention that if the player who summoned him is attacked during the wait, then it immediately cancels out Haru's attack.
  • Flight: His duel avatar's special ability in the Accelerated World.
  • Sword Beam: His forward support has him attack his opponent with a laser from his blade.

Hinata Hakamada

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_hakamadahinata.png
Innocent Charm

Series: Ro-Kyu-Bu!
Voiced by: Yui Ogura

Small, sweet, and carefree. She has an innocent but devilish charm that bewitches everyone around her. Look out for her "innocent" body contact.

Suddenly appears in front of the opponent, and draws them closer with her irresistible charm. This move also has defensive properties, as the sparkles can cause the opponent to miss with their attack.


  • Badass Adorable
  • Counter Attack: Hinata's Neutral Support causes her to appear in front of her summoner. If attacked by the opponent, the attack is negated and the opponent auto-blocks, whether he/she wants to or not. The Forward Support version causes her to appear behind the opponent and forces them to block away from the player, opening the opponent up for combo opportunities.

Holo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_holo.png
The Sage Wolf

Voiced by: Ami Koshimizu

The wolf deity of wheat manifested as a young woman. She's a heavy drinker and glutton, and longs to return to her home of Yoitsu. Lawrence is her unfortunate travel partner.

Using the Bounty of Wheat, she can heal allies that stand near her. But when she attacks, her arm changes into her true form - that of a giant wolf - to deliver a powerful blow.


  • Combat Medic: While Holo is fully capable of offense support, her Forward Support functions as this. When used, Holo generates a circle near her that restores the player's HP and Climax Gauge while the player stands in it. However, it will become less effective with successive uses.
  • Physical God

Kouko Kaga

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_kouko.png
Flower Girl

Series: Golden Time
Voiced by: Yui Horie

Dressed in brand-name finery, she seems the perfect girl, but on the inside, she's troubled. She pursued her childhood sweetheart to college. Kind of a stalker?

Appears holding a bouquet of roses, which you'd think would be elegant... but she then proceeds to smack the opponent with them. If she manages to blow a kiss to them, the opponent loses their will to fight, and their Climax Gauge will start to drop.


  • Adaptational Badass: A completely normal college student manages to go toe-to-toe with various characters who have loads of combat experience compared to her, to say the least.
  • Badass Normal: She actually smacks people who was way above her skills silly with her bouquet.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Kouko Kaga's Forward Support summons her with a bouquet of roses. She will then proceed to walk up to the opponent, and if she reaches him/her, she'll slap the opponent silly using her bouquet for a combo before shooting a kiss that drains the opponent's Climax Meter.
  • Shown Their Work: One of her assists is literally a re-enactment of her introduction in the original novel and anime.

Boogiepop

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_boogiepop.png
Shinigami of Legend

Voiced by: Kaori Shimizu

When enemies of the world appear, this persona automatically rises from inside high school student, Touka Miyashita. Is it the "Shinigami" that kills people when they are young and beautiful?

Boogiepop attacks with his (her?) iconic wire. One move has very fast startup that catches opponents at close range, and another has a very slow startup and can't be blocked in the air.


  • Ambiguous Gender: Boogiepop has been stated to be genderless but is commonly referred to as either a male or female.
  • Overly Long Fighting Animation: Boogiepop's Forward Support makes her appear, then the background turns black while a song plays. This lasts for a good five seconds before she turns around, after which slashes flash across the screen and smack the opponent, which is an unblockable Always Accurate Attack. Interestingly, unlike many assists of this type that appear in other fighting games, Boogiepop is completely invincible during the animation, which essentially means that if the summoner can avoid taking damage, it grants them a free hit.

Kino

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_kino_1.png
Traveler of Many Trades

Voiced by: Aya Hisakawa

This character travels the world atop Hermes and has cool judgement, sharp insight, and knows how to handle guns. Kino's true love is a stomach full of warm food and a cozy bed to sleep in.

Fights with her gun. She has one version that hits opponents on the ground, and one for the air, allowing you to use whichever is appropriate for your combo. She makes a great support for characters that don't have any projectiles in their base moveset.


Mashiro Shiina

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_shiina.png
Enigmatic Mangaka

Voiced by: Ai Kayano

A world-famous artist that lacks the most basic living skills. She moved to Japan in pursuit of her dream to become a manga artist and now lives in Sakurasou, a hangout for problem kids.

As a gifted artist, she creates art in mid-air that comes to life and attacks the opponent. Essentially, they're for chasing down the enemy, but some of them stay onscreen for quite a while, forcing your opponent into a defensive position.


  • Adaptational Badass
  • Art Attacker: Mashiro can attack her opponents by drawing things that come to life. In her neutral support, she draws rings that start rolling on the ground towards her opponent. And in her forward support, she draws cats that run at her opponents to inflict Collision Damage.

Erio Towa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_erio.png
She Who Believes in Aliens

Voiced by: Asuka Oogame

Makoto Niwa's cousin. She's an odd young lady who thinks she's an alien, has glittery hair, and drapes a futon around herself. Her favorite food is pizza.

Erio appears with her futon to provide both defensive and offensive skills. When defending, she wraps herself in her futon, which acts like a shield.


  • No-Sell: Erio's Neutral Support has her run up to the opponent and wrap herself in a futon, then hop around. This neutralizes all attacks the opponent throws while she stands near them, and unlike Touma, she can get hit anywhere without getting desummoned. However, this only works in proximity, so it's no good if the opponent simply runs past her.

Sadao Maou

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_maousadao.png
King Satan Jacob

Voiced by: Ryota Ohsaka

The Devil King transported from the parallel universe, Ente Isla, to Tokyo after being defeated by a young hero. He works at a fast food restaurant while working on his goal of conquering Japan.

Every time his attack hits, it gets a little stronger, and after a few hits, he turns into his Demon Lord form to deliver a powerful blow. Unlike other characters, he only has one move normally, but he can use two in his Demon Lord form.


  • Enemy Mine: In Ignition, you can choose him to be Emi Yusa's support.
  • Limit Break: If Sadao Mao is your Support, he can also use one. Both of his Support Attacks are standard rushing punches that deal weak damage. However, if two punches connect in a row, the third will summon him in Demon Mode, where he will pull off an incredibly powerful and lengthy attack depending on what type of support you call; Neutral Support summons Frickin' Laser Beams, while Forward Support calls him with a BFS.

Ryuji Takasu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_ryuji.png
The Dragon

Series: Toradora!
Voiced by: Junji Majima

High school student with narrow eyes that give him a lowlife appearance. Many people think he's a troublemaker, but he's gentle, caring, and a skilled cook.

Whether it's delivering homemade bentos to boost your health and Climax Gauge, or cleaning up the battlefield (literally and figuratively), he uses his domestic skills to support you.


  • Neat Freak: He's known to be very obsessive of cleaning. In his forward support, he weaponizes this by dashing at his opponent while mopping the floor like mad.
  • Power-Up Food: When Ryuuji is called for his Neutral Support, he tosses out a bento bag, a bento box, or bento boxes, in that order. The first adds a little regenerative HP to the player's HP meter, the second adds to the Climax Gauge, and the third does both. However, taking a bento bag after bento boxes actually reduces the player's Climax Gauge by one stage, albeit until the player takes another bento bag. Also, if your opponent is savvy, they can steal the food for themselves.
  • Turns Red: When called to use his Forward Support, Ryuuji sweeps the floor sparkling clean, then comes back around and hits the opponent multiple times from behind. However, if he is hit prematurely with a projectile or an EX Attack, he gains a red Battle Aura and speeds up. This also allows him to hit his target on the first pass instead of the second, and he hits more times.

Dokuro-chan

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_dokuro.png
The Time-Traveling Angel Assassin

Voiced by: Saeko Chiba

An angel who came back in time to deal with future inventor, Sakura. She regularly clubs Sakura to death with her magical spiked club, Excalibolg, and she loves tuna-mayo onigiri.

She bludgeons the opponent with her club, Excalibolg. When she's backed into a corner, she might throw Excalibolg, and even bludgeon her friends!? She's a support character with enormous destructive strength that can change the tide of battle.


  • Batter Up!: Her main weapon is a spiked club named Excalibolg, which she can throw at her opponent in her forward support.
  • Counter Attack: If the player is cornered against the stage boundary and then knocked down, holding the support character button will cause Dokuro to automatically throw her club in defense. And even if the opponent manages to block the oncoming attack, Dokuro then swings her club around to protect the player from a close-range approach. It requires three Climax bars and a bit of health to use though, making it very technical.
  • Death from Above: Dokuro-chan's vertical club stab.
  • Our Angels Are Different
  • Throwing Your Club Always Works: Her forward support.

Accelerator

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dengekibunkofightingclimax_accelerator.png
The Strongest

Accelerator voiced by: Nobuhiko Okamoto
Last Order voiced by: Rina Hidaka

Top-ranked Level 5 Esper, his Vector Change ability manipulates kinetic energy. Deflecting opponents' attacks makes him a truly powerful force in battle.

Launches a shockwave that sends the opponent bouncing around the screen. If an opponent happens to attack Last Order while she is onscreen, Accelerator will appear and retaliate with his black wings.


  • Assist Character: Accelerator's support attack features Last Order being summoned in. If the opponent attacks her, he jumps in and attacks the opponent.
  • Counter Attack: Accelerator's Neutral Support actually summons Last Order instead. If she is attacked by the opponent, Accelerator warps in behind her and retaliates with a powerful attack.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Unlike the other assist characters who'll either complain about their loss or consolidate the player character, Accelerator will actually come up with witty remarks aimed directly at the character he's assisting if he/she loses a match.
    Accelerator: "That one's on the house, loser!"
  • Handicapped Badass: The Accelerator you see in this game is after he took a bullet to the head which gave him mobility issues. He now needs a cane to walk around, but that doesn't stop him from being a powerful force to be reckoned with.
  • Power Gives You Wings
  • Shockwave Stomp: Accelerator's forward support has him stomp on the ground to send a wave of kinetic energy at his opponent. The impact has such high knockback that it sends him/her bouncing off the ground and stage boundaries multiple times like a rag doll.

Series: Durarara!!
Voiced by: Hiroshi Kamiya

An information broker with a certain lack (well, a major lack) of humanity who likes to use information as a weapon to control people. Shizuo Heiwajima harbors particular ill will against him.

He strolls into the battlefield, apparently giving himself up. But as soon as he sees an opening, he strikes with his knife. He's an easy-to-use support character with versatile moves.

Graceful Chinese Beauty

Voiced by: Minami Takayama

A gentle warrior who battles with grace and beauty using her Ensei-ken style of fighting. When Pai learned of her father's entry to the World Fighting Tournament, she joined as well.

She pressures the opponent with fast, graceful close-range blows. Her launcher attack can help turn the tide of battle in your favor.


  • Boring, but Practical: Pai's support moves are less impressive to watch than the other support characters, but they make up for this by being very effective in both offensive and defensive situations.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs

Alicia Melchiott

Gallian Valkyria

Voiced by: Marina Inoue

She has the blood of the Valkyria, and even though she agonizes over wielding such power, she will do what is needed to protect those she loves. Her dream is to be a master baker.

She sends opponents flying with surprisingly accurate grenade throws. There's a bit of a startup time, but she can also call upon the power of the Valkyria to support you.


  • Demoted to Extra: In case you didn't know... Alicia was the heroine of Valkyria Chronicles. But in here, she's only an assist character to Selvaria... one of the antagonists of the game.
  • Enemy Mine: With Selvaria.
  • Super Mode: In her forward support, Alicia turns into a Valkyria and attacks her opponent with a Spin Attack.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: In her neutral support, Alicia throws a German stick grenade at her opponent.

  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Pit her against Mikoto, and the following pre-fight banter will have her turn into this. And if Kuroko manages to win the last round, her victory animation shows her about to leap on the downed Mikoto for her pleasure, with the screen fading to black just as she does. The rest is left to the player's imagination as to what unspeakable sexual harassment she's doing to poor Mikoto.
  • Telefrag: In one of her Climax Arts, Kuroko teleports her opponent inside a building and then telefrags sheets of glass into the support pillars to sever them, causing the whole building to collapse on her opponent.
  • Teleport Spam: Kuroko's specialty.

Tori and Kimi's childhood friend, Tomo Asama uses her spiritual connection as the Asama Shrine's priestess to shoot her bow and arrow with precision.


  • Archer Archetype
  • Charged Attack: Both versions of Tomo's Support can be charged by holding the S button; charging the Forward Support version causes it to home in on airborne targets. Her Climax Art can also be strengthened by feeding her more Climax Gauge; it deals a third of the opponent's health normally, half at one bar, a little more than half at two bars, and two-thirds at three bars.

  • Death from Above: Attacking Iriya's bowl after she's done eating will cause the bowl to fly into the air, then fall on the opponent seconds later for minor damage.
  • Power-Up Food: Iriya's Neutral Support also involves food, except she eats it, not the player. Upon being summoned, she will appear in front of the player, summon a table and a bowl of food, and begin to chow down. Every time you summon her, she will eat another bowl; once Iriya eats two bowls, the player gains a Status Buff, and at three bowls, the buff becomes stronger. Once the third bowl is consumed, a congratulatory party ball opens behind her, followed by a screen-wide burst of confetti that damages the opponent.

  • Counter Attack: Zero's Neutral Support will cause her to appear while holding an orb before her; if the opponent touches it, they will be blasted across the stage without taking damage. Like Imagine Breaker, it will also block attacks and Climaxes and will even blast the opponent anyways if they're close enough, but it only lasts for a few seconds, which means that you may be on the receiving end of a hard hit if a Climax takes long enough.
