Voiced by: Nobuhisa Nakamoto

  • Accidental Pervert: Once the hot springs are discovered, Tadakata gives him a map of "The Commander's Special Passage." It of course leads to the women's bath.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Many. Himiko jump-starts the trend by calling him "Big Brother" (onii-sama), which Geronimo quickly takes a cue from and begins to call him "Big Bro" (onii-chan), much to the former's chagrin. Later on, Lancelot starts to call him "Master" (shishou), Benkei and Tadataka calls him "Commander", and Bedivere simply refers to him as "Prince".
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: Does so to Nobunaga when doing a favor to Goemon to get her some rare wood.
  • Amnesiac Hero: He recalls his name and that he comes from the real world, but nothing about his actual past. Subverted. Being an embodiment of the collective thoughts and light of the heroes and their desire to protect the world, he never had a memory of his own and his summoning was also his birth. Hence it is likely the memories of what he taken is pretty came from someone in the Modern Times itself.
  • Angst? What Angst?: He takes getting thrown into an alternate world without any modern conveniences quite well.
  • Audience Surrogate: Courtesy of being a stranger in a strange world.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: The primary reason he's a Chick Magnet.
  • Big "SHUT UP!": Delivers one to Mu when she tries to make him doubt his trust in Arthur.
  • But Now I Must Go: Leaves on a journey to continue watching over and protecting the world in the true ending while seeking to find himself after learning his true identity.
  • The Casanova: Many of the recruited heroes end up falling for him and he's able to return their feelings. Given his true identity as a physical embodiment of nature's desire to protect all of the heroes, this is inevitable.
  • The Chosen One: Kusanagi accepts him as its new owner.
  • Chick Magnet: Even if a hero who joins his army doesn't fall in love with him, he still earns her trust.
  • Clap Your Hands If You Believe: How he was able to take a physical form through Himiko's strong feelings to protect the world.
  • Covert Pervert: After finding out that the map given to him leads to a spot where he can peep on the women's hot springs, he keeps it.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He has several moments of this when witnessing members of his army being silly.
  • Declaration of Protection: Chihaya swearing the same oath to Himiko that Takeru did is what allows him to wield Kusanagi.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Gets saddled with "King of Lust" as his reputation grows.
  • Everything's Better with Samurai: Wears traditional samurai armor.
  • Gold Eyes, Take Warning: When Chihaya's eyes turn gold, it means he's about to kick some serious ass.
  • He's Back: In The Stinger.
  • The Hero: And the only playable male character.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: His weapon of choice, as that is what Takeru trains him in to prepare him to inherit Kusanagi.
  • Humble Hero: Chihaya gets embarrassed over praise and admiration, and keeps insisting that he's not really all that great, it's only because of everyone else that he's able to be an able leader for Zipang. His humility earns him even more admiration, as it's taken as a sign of maturity.
  • Kirk Summation: When telling Mu why she lost after her defeat.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Has high attack and speed, plus above-average defense.
  • Love Dodecahedron: At least half of the heroes fall for him to some degree and compete for his affection. He's mostly torn between Himiko and Arthur himself.
  • Macguffin Delivery Service: All of the fighting he does to conquer the world also generates all of the chaotic energy needed for Mu to revive the Mu continent.
  • Mega Manning: As a combination of his true identity and the Kusanagi, he is able to wield the powers and abilities of the souls stored within the Kusanagi. However for gameplay purposes he can just simply summon them right in the battlefield.
  • My Name Is ???: He starts off this way until he can recall his (default) name. Or the player can make it instead.
  • Nice Guy: Chihaya is a very humble man for someone placed in his position.
  • Not So Different: Played for Laughs when the party has to fight Zeus and all of the women join the fight against him because of what a womanizer he was. Chihaya can only Face Palm when he realizes they're calling Zeus the "King of Lust" too.
  • Officer and a Gentleman: As the leader of Zipang and the commander of its armies, he is frequently referred to as a "gentleman" by several characters, especially after he's done something nice for them. (Allowing the directionless Percival, who is an enemy of him at the time, to return to her camp instead of holding her hostage; Offering to dig up the ore for Goemon, etc.)
  • Peek-a-Bangs: A male example with his hair covering his right eye in his regular portrait.

  • The Red Baron: "The Servant of Heaven."
  • Something Else Also Rises: A few of the jokes at his expense are based on this.
  • Spanner in the Works: His presence is what allows the Big Bad's plans to derail as even she doesn't know who he is or where he came from.

Himiko

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/_6.jpg
Voiced by: Yui Oogura

  • A-Cup Angst: She's jealous of Yoshitsune for having a bust that isn't too large or too small, especially compared to hers.
  • Adult Child: Her ideas of interrogation are tickle torture and forcing the prisoners to watch people eat their favorite foods in front of them.
  • Always Someone Better: How she feels about many of her love rivals, especially Kenshin.
  • Apologetic Attacker: Himiko will apologize to her target when she uses an offensive skill.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Betty to Arthur's Veronica.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Her people love her, but she's not a very good military commander at all and is even worse when it comes to handling official affairs. Yamatai was well on the way to complete bankruptcy had she not succeeded in unifying Zipang when she did.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She does not want any other girl (especially Arthur) getting close to Chihaya.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Himiko has the tendency to easily trip. In a scene very reminiscent to Colette, she knocks a mountain of items on her and emerges with the one thing everyone was looking for.
  • Every Girl Is Cuter with Hair Decs: She wears a pair of magatamas and a giant hair ribbon in her hair.
  • First Girl Wins: Kinda. Chihaya has relationships (of what kind depends on what version of the game) with many, many other women but Himiko is the first girl he hooks up with and seems to be his main love interest. Notably when he returns from his Walking the Earth it's her he comes to first and he never objects to her calling herself his wife.
  • Genki Girl: Nobunaga constantly comments on her being full of energy.
  • He Is Not My Boyfriend: Inverted. She fully insists that she is Chihaya's wife.
  • Hidden Depths: In an early event, you learn that given Himiko's popularity among her people, it's very easy for her to perform inspections and take notice of problems in the city just by recording what she's heard.
  • I Meant to Do That: When she bites her tongue challenging Hammurabi to a good wife contest.
  • I Will Wait for You: In the True Ending.
  • Miko: Himiko's outfit resembles a traditional miko robe.
  • Please Wake Up: Spoken word-for-word to Takeru when she dies on the Mu continent.
  • Power Trio: Between herself, Nobunaga, and Yoshitsune as the governors of Zipang before unification.
  • Rapunzel Hair: It reaches her thighs at least.
  • The Rival: To Geronimo over who can be the better little sister for Chihaya.
  • Squishy Wizard: Her primary offense is magic missiles and she can't take more than 1-2 hits due to being weak against every type of physical attack. Then again she is more of a White Mage
  • Take Over the World: Her main motivation. Subverted as she's doing it as a way to Save the World.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Nobunaga.
  • We Used to Be Friends: All of Himiko, Yoshitsune, and Nobunaga before the civil war to unify Zipang. Once Himiko unites them, they return to being friends.
  • White Mage: She's the only healer for a good portion of the game). However her Hero Skill and Aura makes her one of the best supports.

Oda Nobunaga

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/_03.jpg
Voiced by: Akane Tomonaga
  • Alternate Universe Me Disgusts Me: She takes enormous offense when Chihaya asks if she's done some of the things the real world Oda Nobunaga has done, albeit not for reasons one may expect. For example, when asked if she would ever drink sake out of a golden skull, she says the idea is repulsive because it would ruin the taste of the booze.
  • Badass Longcoat: Really the only practical part of her outfit.
  • Beat Them at Their Own Game: When Marco Polo tries to sell her fake rare items to gather information, she not only sees through the ruse, but also drags Marco along to show the latter her own collection.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Her character quest where she has Chihaya test her Noodle Implement on her.
  • Driven to Suicide: Played for Laughs when she puts a gun to herself after finding out Chihaya received her Amasson order by mistake. See Noodle Implement.
  • Flat-Earth Atheist: Unintentionally on Nobunaga's part. In a blink-and-you'll-miss-it line right after Himiko conquers Edo, Nobunaga says, "I don't believe in the existence of god, but I'm interested to see just what kind of man the Servant of Heaven really is." That's the "atheist" part. The "flat-earth" part of the trope comes in when as it turns out in the True Ending path, there is a god, she just happens to be an evil god.
  • Glass Cannon: Very high attack, but would be lucky to take more than 1-2 hits before going down.
  • Hidden Depths: In addition to being a very competent military commander and good with budgeting and accounting, Nobunaga is also a mail-order catalog enthusiast, and in one character event she teaches Qin Shi Huang the joys of mail-order catalogs.
  • I Never Said It Was Poison: How she reveals that she did indeed order her Noodle Implement from Amasson.
  • Noodle Implement: Whatever it is she ordered from Amasson that got delivered to Chihaya by mistake during her character quests. She nearly killed herself over someone finding out about it.note 
  • Porn Stash: She gets caught ordering from the "adult" section of the Amasson catalog.
  • Power Trio: With Himiko and Yoshitsune.
  • The Red Baron: "The Demon King."
  • The Starscream: Downplayed as she warns Himiko that she will have no qualms of taking over if Himiko loses sight of her goal.
  • Stripperiffic: She's not wearing pants!
  • Tsundere: How she acts towards Chihaya as her character arc progresses.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Himiko. Chihaya outright asks if they like each other or hate each other.
  • You Gotta Have Pink Hair: A darker shade of pink.
    • Pink Means Feminine: Inverted. Despite having long pink hair, Nobunaga is rowdy, hot-headed, and rather boyish, leaning more heavily towards The Lad-ette than anything.

  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Yoshitsune.
  • Hidden Depths: She has excellent dexterity and is very skilled at crafting wire models. Also, during one of Benkei's events, Yoshitsune praises Benkei for having good judgement in weapons, as a blacksmith gives Benkei a sword for free only because it was rusty and thus theoretically junk, but Benkei loves it anyway because she realizes that despite being rusty, the sword is still sharp.
  • Make a Wish: In Benkei's character events, she's attempting to collect 1,000 weapons because she decided that her wish will come true if she manages to collect that many. It's not a real wish, of course, and Benkei knows this, but it's something she decided to give herself confidence. When she does finally collect the thousandth weapon, she finally reveals to Chihaya that her wish is for Chihaya to like her back as much as she likes him.

  • Fate Worse than Death: What she considers the curse on her family.
  • Felony Misdemeanor: She responds to Himiko's declaration of war by sending a proofread version of Himiko's letter- which was full of incorrect strokes and grammatical errors- back to her and adding the acceptance as almost an afterthought. Himiko is pissed.

  • Katanas Are Just Better: Her weapon of choice.
  • Neutral No Longer: While discussing the necessity of gathering intelligence for future wars, Yoshitsune mentions that originally, she had no interest in Zipang's hegemony disputes, meaning she didn't originally care whether Himiko or Nobunaga would unify Zipang. But Himiko's declaration of war changed Yoshitsune's mind, since it would allow Yoshitsune to see what Himiko had learned.
  • Power Trio: With Himiko and Nobunaga.
  • The Stoic: Usually very calm and composed. However, she tends to get thrown into a panic if her "flat-chested curse" is in danger of being revealed.

  • Training from Hell: Her method of teaching Himiko how to be a proper leader. Just the prospect of it has Himiko pleading for mercy.

  • Kansai Regional Dialect: Reflected in the English localization as well.

  • Short Hair with Tail: To go with her fox image she has a long ponytail that looks like a fox tail.

However, her final character event reveals that she's actually using the time-off to keep spirits away from Zipang.
  • Squishy Wizard: Can take more damage than Himiko, but still not much compared to others.

  • Blood from the Mouth: One of her character portraits.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Quite possibly the kindest person in the world.
  • Hand-Hiding Sleeves: For a practical reason; This is explained in one of Himiko's character events that because she has a weak constitution, she always has to dress warm to avoid catching a cold.
  • If It's You, It's Okay: When a medicinal ointment has to be applied to her body, she says this to Chinaya after her friends suggest he be the one to do it.
  • Ill Girl: Born with a weak constitution, but she doesn't let it slow her down so as not to become The Load. It turns out the "medicine" she had been taking was liquid mercury and it was slowly killing her.
  • Incurable Cough of Death: Averted at the end. Even though there are scenes of her coughing up blood, she begins to get much better once she stops drinking the liquid mercury that had been sold to her as a cure-all medicine.
  • Nice Hat: It's the empress's crown and matches her regality perfectly.

  • "Shaggy Dog" Story: In her character events, Qin Shi Huang goes to a great deal of trouble looking for a great ascetic, who can supposedly make a medicine that can cure her for good. Eventually, she and Chihaya do discover the ascetic or rather, the student furthest along in the ascetic training. The ascetic doesn't actually exist, as no one has ever actually made it that far into enlightenment. Thus, the medicine doesn't exist either. But the fresh mountain air does improve Qin Shi Huang's condition.

  • Catchphrase: "This will be on the test."
  • Friendly Rival: To Hannibal. They enjoy learning from each other and engaging in battles of wits in mock battles.
  • Heroic BSoD: Subverted in her penultimate event. After losing to Napoleon and Lu Bu in a mock battle, she shuts herself in her room, seemingly depressed from the defeat. However, when a worried Chihaya comes to check on her, he finds out that she's actually using the valuable experience learned from the battle to compose a strategy guide which would be accessible to masters and novices alike.
  • Irony: When Lu Bu leaves before she's done talking, she claims that Qin Shi Huang is in trouble in order to bring her back. She later falls for a rumor started by the Zipang army that Shi is on her deathbed, causing her to abandon her post and return to the palace. She even Lampshades the fact that she's fallen for her own trick.

  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Lu Bu's red.
  • Sensei-chan: Refers to herself as "Sun Tzu Sensei" in the Japanese script, and will often act like the teacher to everyone. However, this does her absolutely no favor with handling Lu Bu.
  • Shipper on Deck: She works with Lu Bu to get Qin Shi Huang together with Chihaya.

On Kublai's quest in searching for the inheritance left behind by her grandmother, she ends up finding nothing but an old helmet after following the treasure map to the indicated place.

Voiced by: Yukina Fujimori
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She doesn't appreciate Kublai flirting with anyone else, especially not with Chihaya.
  • Glass Cannon: Her weapon is strong against several others, but her low defense and many weapon types being strong against hers makes it hard to keep her alive. Goes nearly on to Fragile Speedster

Voiced by: Shiho Tachibana
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's very courteous and civil, but once she learns about her trust being betrayed...
  • Berserk Button: Do not call her an old hag.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: She has no problem kicking ass while baring it all, nor does it reduce her ability to inflict terror on those who betrays her trust. Just ask the Maharajah...
  • Heel–Face Turn: In-Universe, it's revealed she used to be a notorious bandit before adopting the dharma law and unifying India.
  • Noodle Incident: Exactly what she did to punish the Maharajah after she learns they'd betrayed her trust is left unsaid.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Had she traveled to the cities outside of the capital she would have found each of the Maharajah lying about everything they were telling her about conditions elsewhere.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Herself, yes. The Maharajah? Not at all.
  • Stripperiffic: So much so that Chihaya gets incredibly flustered at their first meeting.
    • Innocent Fanservice Girl: She doesn't seem to understand the concept of nudity either, and considers it normal to parade in public pretty much stark naked with just some silk cloth (which don't cover anything) clinging on her.
    Ashoka: (bewildered at Chihaya's flustering) But this is my regular formal wear...
  • The Teetotaler: During one of Seimei's character events, Ashoka reveals (after asking Chihaya and Seimei not to tell anyone) that she has chosen to abstain from alcohol, because she worries that it could make her lose control over herself and end up doing things she doesn't remember doing afterwards.
  • Tranquil Fury: After her Berserk Button is pressed.
    Ashoka: "Excuse me for a moment. This young lady and I need to step aside for a talk."
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair: Very dark green.

    The EU 
A federation made of several nations that were united under Napoleon after a long war. Despite baring the geographical disadvantage of being surrounded by several other powerful nations such as Russia, Britannia and Macedonia, the EU manages to became the second strongest nation in world, and has began to expand with its colonization of the South Seas (South East Asia). In addition, they've also controlled Australia and used it as a penal colony, but later lost it due to the Illuminati's activities in the region.
  • The Federation: A union of all the European nations save for Britain, much like in real life.

Voiced by: Akane Sanada
  • Anguished Declaration of Love: "I...LIKE...YOOOOOOOUUUUUUU!!!" to Chihaya In her final character event. Unfortunately for Chihaya, this is being shouted just as she throws out her fastball, which ends up knocking him out cold.
  • Baseball Episode: Pretty much all of her character events are related to baseball in some way. If she's not in a game, she'll be practising her pitching (and generally causing mayhem with her reckless throwing skills).
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: The combination of her Super Strength and rigorous training eventually gives her this. See Limit Break below.
  • Determinator: She aims to be the best baseball player in the world and trains daily.

  • Fiery Redhead: The fire can even be seen in her eyes and she lets nothing slow her down.
  • Hair Decorations: A yellow ribbon.
  • Honor Before Reason: During one of her character events, Magellan laments that her failure at pitching, since every one of her pitches were hit, even though it was because her opponents were all breaking the rules by countering her throws with weapons.
  • Hot-Blooded: Already fighting an Unknown nationnote  at the same time Zipang declares war? Her response is, "Bring 'em on!"
  • Limit Break: While most characters have this in the form of their Hero Skill, Magellan is a particular noticeable case as her Hero Skill, Magellanic Clouds, involves summoning a thundercloud that proceeds to drop a rain of fastballs at her opponents with the speed and force of falling meteorites.
  • Made of Iron: Described by Cook as a "Steel Fetish". Getting shot by a gun? She'll spring right back up with barely a scratch.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Cook's blue.
  • School Swimsuit: She wears a white one under her military uniform...
    • Walking Swimsuit Scene: ...And never changes into anything else. Kind of makes sense when she's out on naval duty. Not while she's off-duty and playing baseball of all things, instead of any kind of water activities.
  • Serious Business: Baseball. Especially once she starts using it as a means to conveying her feelings.
  • Super Not-Drowning Skills: She sinks to the bottom of the ocean while wearing a heavy training harness and resurfaces completely fine almost immediately.
  • Training from Hell: Self-inflicted in order to becomes the world's best pitcher. Most notably utilizing a training harness that had been banned for being so heavy it would put entire ships over capacity.
  • Will Not Tell a Lie: When Cook and Magellan temporarily ally with Zipang, Cook tries to smooth it over with Napoleon in more positive turns, causing Napoleon to praise Cook. However, Magellan insists that it's wrong to tell lies, and she tells Napoleon the whole truth, causing Napoleon to fire both her and Cook. This eventually turns out for the best.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: She holds the fort in Guam while sending Cook to form an alliance with Zipang so they can catch the Illuminati in a pincer attack.

  • A-Cup Angst: She reveals she suffers from it later in her character arc.

  • Rapunzel Hair: It reaches all the way past her knees.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Hannibal's blue.
  • Self Made Woman: Revealed in one of her character events. Born in the countryside, Napoleon was constantly looked down by other noble students for her upbringing during her student years.

  • Tsundere: Big time. This is largely the reason she's so popular in Japan.

Voiced by: Erika Narumi
  • All Amazons Want Hercules: In her final event during a fencing practice as she bluntly states her interest in Chihaya for his strength.
  • Apologetic Attacker: In-story. After Napoleon and Nobunaga start arguing at Zipang and the EU's negotiations, Hannibal predicts that this will lead to a war between Zipang and the EU and apologizes to Chihaya in advance.

  • The Stoic: Perhaps the most collected person in the whole game.
  • The Strategist: For the EU.
  • War Elephants: Her finishing move is summoning a stampede of elephants to the last row of the opponent.
  • We Cannot Go On Without You: For the EU. Hannibal actually takes steps in trying to avert this, as she advises Napoleon before her battle with Zipang to have a backup plan ready should she gets captured. Unfortunately, her effort is ultimately rendered moot as Napoleon is greatly distressed by the news of her capture, which disrupts her ability to think strategically and end up causing the EU to lose the war.
  • You Gotta Have Pink Hair: A darker pink.

  • Gainaxing: Himiko declares she'll be bouncing like that one day too.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She is very kind.
  • Hidden Depths: When she's first introduced, Caesar seems to spend money too easily, but later in her character events, it's revealed that Rome is capable of surviving a famine because Caesar went to a lot of trouble to prepare for such an emergency in advance, such as building up rations of wheat for the citizens, building a big library, and even using the library's pool for spare water.

  • Stripperiffic: Her toga is more like a translucent nightgown.

  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Her nice girl act drops almost immediately.
  • Butt-Monkey: Often referred to as "garbage" by most of her allies, although it's hard to sympathize with her after seeing the kind of antics she tends to pull. Her pranks and ploys will often end up backfiring on her as well for good karma.
  • Dirty Coward: Tries to poison Chihaya at their first meeting and tends to run away at the first sign of danger. Napoleon constantly punishes her for this by locking her away in the Catacombs and out of the spotlight.

  • Greed: Surfaces when the party finds high-quality jade stones in a river. She tries to take so many that she gets weighed down and swept away by the current.

  • Third-Person Person: Tries to pass herself off as cute with this.

Of course, in the grand tradition of Tsundere, she refuses to speak her heart out-loud, instead telling Chihaya to just accept it and forbids him from objecting.
  • Valley Girl: The way her speech is translated.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Grade B.

  • I Just Want to Be Special: Her character events reveal she took up black magic to learn how to attract guys and overcome her own crybaby tendencies.
  • Mad Scientist: More like a Mad Alchemist/Sorceress. She likes to conduct experiments on things with the help of her alchemy equipments while the demon Mephistopheles acts as her assistant. Unfortunately, her experiments have a habit of resulting in explosions, which is what lead to Faust being exiled from her home country in the first place. Chihaya has to asks her to refrain from causing explosions before accepting her into Zipang.

  • Exotic Eye Designs: She has crosses in her pupils.
  • Expressive Accessory: The angel wings on her back will flutter or droop to match her mood.

  • Hates Being Alone: Revealed in her final character event. Despite having previously said that she prefers solitude, Joan actually fears being alone, and is very grateful that the message from God has lead to her making friends with the Zipang heroes.

  • Stone Wall: Very high natural defense, low attack and speed.

  • "No" Means "Yes": She has a very roundabout way of saying yes and it boils down to this.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: Purple tights for a pink skirt.
  • Sleight of Tongue: Sort of. Chihaya uses it in her final event to trick Vlad into drinking his blood to cure herself, which she was previously unwilling to do out of pride.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: When she returns home to Transylvania and finds the art and tapestries in Bran Castle destroyed, this is her reaction. She would have been fine if they had been stolen and sold, as that would have preserved them.

Upon beating the pirates, Kamehameha offers to help you fight, and upon being told you already beat the pirates, Kamehameha decides that since the pirates conquered Hawaii, and you conquered the pirates, both Hawaii and Kamehameha herself are now yours, so Kamehameha joins your army without having to be fought.

  • Squishy Wizard: She's a magical unit and rather loves the squishiness it gives her.

  • Squishy Wizard: Another magic user who is weak to almost all other attacks.

  • White Mage: The first healer the player finally gets after Himiko.
  • The Woobie: In-Universe. It's one of the reasons why her people adore her.

  • Anguished Declaration of Love: The last thing she says to Chihaya in the event where she briefly shakes off her brainwashing before being taken away.

  • Blush Stickers: In her CG images.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite her appetite, Lancelot is a very skilled swordswoman and can work hard when she needs to, as shown in one of her character events.
  • Cut a Slice, Take the Rest: She attempts this with a cask of grape juice being prepared for wine when told she can have "one more drink."
  • Everyone Has Standards: Played for laughs. Lancelot loves to eat and will take on anything — except her own country's food, which is regarded so badly by her that she forbids Chihaya from mentioning Britannian cuisine while she's eating.
  • Extreme Omnivore: She'll eat, or at least taste, almost anything. It's because of this that she recognizes Qin Shi Huang's "medicine" is actually liquid mercury, because she has tried consuming some in the past herself!

  • I Call It "Vera": Her sword, which is named Aroundight.

  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: During one of her character events, she consciously refuses a snack before her training exercise, which prompts Chihaya to take her temperature in concern. Turns out this is because Lancelot was worried that Chihaya would kick her out of Zipang if she was too weak as a swordswoman, and she really wants to stay with Chihaya and eat delicious food together with him.
  • To Be Lawful or Good: She's the only Knight of the Round who doesn't struggle with this dilemma for more than a split second due to knowing that Arthur isn't acting like herself, leading to her I Choose to Stay declaration.
  • Voice for the Voiceless: Lancelot quickly learns to basically read Uesugi Kenshin's thoughts and speak for her after they become friends.

  • The Southpaw: She's wielding her spear in her left hand in her portrait.

  • Friendly Enemy: She and Zipang allow each other to fully prepare for battle when fighting her in San Francisco even after she had to ask them for directions on where her own camp was.
  • The Ingenue: This coupled with her terrible sense of direction, can often cause boundless amount of trouble for her allies.
  • Just a Kid: In one of her character events, a drunken Percival pressures Chihaya to stop treating her like a child and start seeing her as a proper lady. After receiving a kiss from Chihaya as a proof, she becomes overjoyed and drunkenly confesses to him.

  • And I Must Scream: She knew full well that she was being controlled.
  • The Atoner: She joins the party to make amends for the trouble she caused while being controlled by the Illuminati.
  • Bad Liar: She scratches her cheek when embarrassed and fiddles with her bangs when she's lying.
  • The Berserker: Her main tactic (or the lack thereof) screams this, and she even learns the "Berserk" buff skill later on.
  • Blood Knight: Seeks the thrill of battles and won't hesitate to cut someone down while under Illuminati's control. She's a lot less bloodthirsty once having regained herself.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: She's loud and tough in battle.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: By the Illuminati.
  • Cool Big Sis: Many of the other knights see her as this.
  • Dual Wielding: A ornate longsword in one hand and a cudgel-shaped weapon in the other.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: She's the one leading the attempted Barbarian invasion of Zipang but is only present for a couple of lines.
  • Fiery Redhead: She loves the rush of battle.
  • Foil: Fiery and hot-tempered to the cool, level-headed Galahad.
  • Interface Spoiler: She can be seen in the CG showcasing all of the Knights of the Round long before she's fought in battle when Brainwashed and Crazy.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's standoffish about how she really feels but will always lend a helping hand when asked.
  • The Lad-ette: Rather loud-mouthed and rough around the edges compared to the other knights.
  • Laughing Mad: As part of her Villainous Breakdown, and even a couple of moments after she's returned to normal (though for different reasons).
  • Long Hair Is Feminine: Inverted. Balin is rough and rowdy, being pretty much the exact opposite of Bors and hardly someone you can call feminine.
  • Marshmallow Hell: Treats Chihaya to some in her character event CG.
  • One-Woman Army: In her first appearance, she almost manages to single-handedly capture Taika Empire's capital.
  • Rapunzel Hair: It reaches her thighs.
  • The Red Baron: "The Knight with the Two Swords."
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Implied in her final character event.
  • Slasher Smile: In her portrait even after she's returned to normal.

Voiced by: Chiharu Seto

  • Absolute Cleavage: Her armor is very low cut.
  • Badass Cape: Pure white.
  • Blade on a Stick: She's a spear-wielding unit.
  • Born Unlucky: One of the reasons why she's The Chew Toy. Even when she wins tickets to a free dinner at a luxurious restaurant, she ends up getting food poisoning.
  • The Chew Toy: She draws a lot of bad luck and her subordinates treat her like garbage.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: She's the leader of her squad just like Mordred, but receives no respect from her squad members and constantly gets abused by them.
  • The Eeyore: She admits taking delight in being miserable, to the point of revelling in narcissism.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Slipping on a banana peel, getting covered in mud, and getting knocked into a fountain all in about 30 seconds.

  • Piggyback Cute: The CG in her second character event. Also happens in her final event, albeit with no CG this time around.
  • Stripperiffic: She's only wearing a pair of underpants on the bottom.
  • To Be Lawful or Good: She's the most vocal about Arthur's questionable orders out of her group.

Sir Palamedes

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/_815.jpg
Voiced by: Aya Kitamura

  • Beware the Quiet Ones: She's an expert on poisons.
  • Be Yourself: Despite constantly being asked to adhere to the code of honor like a knight should, Palademes' final character event proves that there are merits in her somewhat underhanded way, as she manages to defeat the powerful "Howling Beast" - a green dragon with her poisons and traps.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Will liberally unleash anaesthetic and poison onto her enemies to give herself an edge.
  • Cool Big Sis: Self-proclaimed to be this to Chihaya.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: With blue eyes.
  • Funny Foreigner: Considered by Tristan as such, who disapproves of her unorthodox methods, leading to constant tension between the two of them.
  • Magic Knight: She's a magic-based unit who channels her spells through her sword.
  • Master Poisoner: Adept in the use of poison and won't hesitate to utilize it to her advantage.
  • The Quiet One: Says very little, usually no more than one or two words at a time.
  • Squishy Wizard: Suffers from the same weakness to all physical skills that magic-based units do.
  • Stripperiffic: She's wearing an open shirt and a sarong.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Bananas.
  • Wardrobe Malfunction: She even calls it that herself when one happens to her after fighting a dragon.
  • When She Smiles: Very cute in the rare instances she does in her character events.

Sir Kay

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/_700.jpg
Voiced by: Yuana Miyazawa

  • BFG: She utilizes a huge cannon in battle.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Ywain. Bedivere looks up to her too.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Towards Ywain.
  • Death Glare: One of her portraits overshadows her eyes and gives this aura.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Averted. See Skewed Priorities.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: She single-handedly cleans Bran Castle after Vlad hires her.
  • Meido: Wears a maid uniform in conjunction with her knight gauntlets. This was also her profession before being knighted.
  • Rapunzel Hair: It reaches her waist.
  • Skewed Priorities: She's more concerned about the cleanliness of the rooms she takes care of vs. the health of her comrades if they get dirty.
  • Supreme Chef: Kay's goal in her character events is to eventually cook food good enough for Lancelot to eat, as Lancelot does not normally like Britannian food. Kay finally succeeds by making food with golden eggs Chihaya helped her retrieve.
  • Yandere: Don't be fooled by her outward politeness, she's an absolute sadist to those who gets on her bad side, and Tristan.

Sir Ywain

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/_505.jpg
Voiced by: Risa Asaki

  • Establishing Character Moment: Knocking Tristan into a fountain and blaming it on her.
  • Gratuitous English: In her Japanese voice acting, she'll occasionally shout an expletive in English.
  • Just a Kid: Her pride as a knight causes her to hate being treated like a kid.
  • Loyal Animal Companion: She rides into battle on a white lion named Laudine.
  • Never My Fault: She doesn't accept responsibility for her mistakes. Kay tending to spoil her prevents her from learning her lessons too.
  • "Shaggy Dog" Story: In her character events, Ywain attempts to defeat a black knight causing trouble for a nearby village, and she wants to do it without the help of the other knights so she can prove to them that she's not just a kid. She does beat the black knight, but before she can take home the helmet as proof of her victory, the helmet and the rest of the armor disappears, as the black knight was a ghost. This leaves Ywain without any evidence to prove her accomplishment, but Chihaya is able to convince her that since he saw her defeat the black knight, that's good enough for him to consider her a model knight. This cheers Ywain up.
  • Sir Swearsalot: A literal example. She drops a Precision F-Strike with her first appearance, and it only carries on from there.
  • Sound-Effect Bleep: Averted. All of her voiced lines that contain expletives are completely uncensored.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Of the Knights.
  • The Unpronounceable: "Yuu-wayne."
  • Wolverine Claws: Averted. Despite riding on a lion she's a Projectile unit and utilizes a Precision-Guided Boomerang.

    The Illuminati 

Achilles

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/_74.jpg
Voiced by: Yoriko Nagata

  • Every Girl Is Cuter with Hair Decs: Black bows for each of her Twin Tails.
  • Fragile Speedster: Fastest character in the game with 12 speed, can often go twice in a row, but has miserable defense and deals subpar damage. Equipping her with offense-enhancing items like Futsunomitama will turn her into a Glass Cannon.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: She's a melee fighter.
  • Groin Attack: Threatens Chihaya with one directly should he look at her naked.
  • Humiliating Wager: After winning a bet with Chihaya that she could deliver a heavy shield halfway across the world and be back before nightfall, she turns him into her personal servant for a day: giving a massage, carrying goods, cooking meals, washing her back in the bath, etc., and milks it for everything she can.
  • Leotard of Power: With a frilly skirt to go with it.
  • Mega Twintails: Almost as long as Napoleon's.
  • Optional Party Member: Recruited from Elysium on the True End path.
  • The Red Baron: "Achilles the Swift."
  • Super Speed: Moves amazingly fast, to the point that she's able to make it halfway across the world and back within a day.

Cu Chulainn

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/_69.jpg
Voiced by: Hatsumi Takada

  • A-Cup Angst: Subverted. When Nobunaga calls her chest tiny, she brushes it off by listing the other measures of a woman.
  • Baleful Polymorph: She can transform into a large, shadowy wolf-like creature. This can temporarily be reverted if Cu Chulainn is shot with a "fragrance bullet" with a smell she hates, as shown when the heroes shoot her with a citrus bullet, but once she's accidentally shot with a smell she likes (cooked meat), she changes back into a wolf-like creature.
  • Blade on a Stick: She's a spear wielder.
  • Critical Hit Class: Has balanced stats and a high critical chance, which makes her an ideal assassin against the sturdier foes.
  • Every Girl Is Cuter with Hair Decs: She wears a pair of pink bows on each side of her head.
  • Narcissist: She's rather full of herself due to her looks.
  • The Nose Knows: "I can pick out a smell from miles away."
  • Optional Party Member: Recruited from Tir na Nog on the True End path.
  • The Rival: To Nobunaga when it comes to competing for Chihaya's attention in her character events.
  • Stripperiffic: A small bikini top, and a fur skirt.
  • The Tease: Seizes every opportunity to tease Chihaya, much to Nobunaga's annoyance.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Of the ancient heroes.

Siegfried

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/_61.jpg
Voiced by: Hiromi Hirata

  • Absolute Cleavage: Very noticeable in contrast with her dark bodysuit.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: She's a talented fighter, but chooses to shun training during times of peace and relies almost entirely on Balmung. This bites her hard during her character arc when Balmung gets broken.
  • Flash Step: Performs one when fighting a dragon in her character events.
  • I Call It "Vera": Her sword, Balmung.
  • Nature Lover: She prefers staying in the forest than being kept within urban surroundings.
  • Optional Party Member: Recruited from Valhalla on the True End path.
  • Rapunzel Hair: It reaches her legs.
  • Shipper on Deck: Her bird friends are rather nosy about pairing her with Chihaya.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: She easily communicates with animals.
  • Stone Wall: Kind of. Her attack stat isn't bad, but having limited offensive skills means you can't rely on her to do damage. Not that it matters, since Siegfried's insane defence stat makes her almost impervious to all but the hardest hits. Buffing it up further and equipping critical damage mitigating items will make her truly Nigh Invulnerable.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Sky blue.

Hercules

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/_764.jpg
"Someday, I'd like for the world to become a place where the strength of the ancient heroes is no longer needed.
Voiced by: Ryouko Tanaka

  • Amazonian Beauty: She is huge and wields a stone column as her weapon.
  • Boobs of Steel: Rocking one of the biggest racks as well as having the highest attack stat among all heroines. Unfortunately, her lackluster defense and speed means she's both a Mighty Glacier and a Glass Cannon.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: She's quite tanned.
  • Dub Name Change: The Japanese voices refer to the Greek version of her name, "Heracles."
  • Fun Personified: She matches Alexander's level of enthusiasm when she's in a good mood and will just laugh everything off.
  • I Gave My Word: She was sealed away before finishing her Ten Labors, and is determined to complete the final two despite the one who gave them to her being long dead.
  • Optional Party Member: Recruited from Arcadia on the True End path.
  • Super Strength: Single-handedly holds off dozens of heroines in her introductory scene through pure strength.

Tai Gong Wang

"I'm just playing a little mini-game called fishing in this long game of life. No doubt there's a rare item waiting in the final stage."
Voiced by: Noriko Rikimaru

  • Bokukko: Uses "boku" as her self-referring pronoun in Japanese.
  • Gamer Chick: Her portrayal fits the stereotypical Anime gamer girl archetype.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: Several objects are floating around her including a sword, spinning blade, flag, footstool, bird cage, and more.
  • Medium Awareness: She calls Nyarlathotep a "secret boss," uses a lot of video game terminology to describe her situation, and even calls Chihaya a "bug".
  • Optional Party Member: Recruited from Kunlun on the True End path.
  • Qipao: Combined with a jester's cap to make up her outfit.
  • Squishy Wizard: Magic-based and weak against all physical attacks.

    Important NPCs 

Mu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/_45.jpg
"Hehehe...Come, heroes, and witness the world's descend into chaos..."

  • As Long as There is Evil: She seeks the accumulated darkness within Camelot and the Dark Realm to revive the Mu continent.
  • Back from the Dead: She speaks of having lived many lifetimes by "rewinding" upon each death. The True Ending path reveals Nyarlathotep being responsible for that.
  • Badass Boast: "I am leader of the Illuminati. I am the hero who will plunge this world into eternal chaos."
  • Big Bad: See her Badass Boast.
  • Deader Than Dead: When she's killed by the Zipang army, she realizes she isn't going to "rewind" any more. Subverted in that Nyarlathotep brings her back one more time to force her to fight the Zipang army again. Twice.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Nyarlathotep intentionally pushed her to cross this.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In the True Ending.
  • The Man Behind the Man: Responsible for giving out the pendants that turned nearly everyone else Brainwashed and Crazy.
  • No-Sell: Chihaya's surprise on her does not work, as she was able to repel his sword without a weapon.
  • Not So Different:
    • Tells this to Chihaya by saying they both want the world covered in war.
    • She quickly realizes her methods made her no different from Nyarlathotep.
  • One-Winged Angel: Inverted. The first time she's fought (as part of the Normal end) is her OWA form. When she's fought again in the True End path, she's normal.
  • Soul Jar: Her soul is able to rest and find peace inside of the Kusanagi in the True Ending.
  • Spanner in the Works: Tried to be this for Nyarlathotep's plans but failed.
  • The Starscream: She sought power to overthrow Nyarlathotep, but was Out-Gambitted by her.
  • Teleportation: Capable of covering long distances this way.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She sought peace for the world by trying to gain enough power to destroy Nyarlathotep, but lost her will to the darkness.
  • You Are Not Alone: Her epiphany in the true ending.

Merlin

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/_445.jpg
"It is I, Merlin. The Great Magician!"
Voiced by: Yuuko Gibu

  • And I Must Scream: The effect that Angolmois's influence has over her makes her wish she could die.
  • Barrier Maiden: One that keeps the "English Channel Barrier" intact to prevent an invasion from the European Federation.
  • Batman Grabs a Gun: Downplayed. Nyarlathotep is the only one who's ever been able to make her angry enough to make her wish she could use her magic to kill, but she still can't actually do so.
  • Big Good: Much of resolving Britannia's, and the world's, plight involves finding her whereabouts.
  • Chekhov's Gun: In-Universe, the protective amulets she had created for Camelot.
  • Last of Her Kind: Rather, the only one of her kind.
  • The Load: Averted. She has no offensive capabilities and thus can't fight, but she is able to contribute to several battles in her own way. Balin teases her by calling her this though.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: Try as people might, she can't be permanently killed.
  • No, You: Her response when Nyarlathotep calls her trash.
  • Phrase Catcher: "Because she's Merlin," is used to describe anything about her quirks.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Within the Dark Realm.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: Nyarlathotep reveals her secret that she cries from loneliness.

Angolmois

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/_281.jpg
  • Artifact of Doom: A living one.
  • Back from the Dead: Returns for a rematch during the True Ending route.
  • Bonus Boss: Fighting him after his return is optional (and he has more HP than the true final boss), but his presence reduces income by 50%.
  • Living MacGuffin: Nostradamus's character arc involves finding him.
  • Mind Screw: What his influence does to those in his presence. A Yaoi Fangirl like Nostradamusnote  find it inspiring while others begin to lose their sanity.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: By Nyarlathotep as he is the only being who isn't affected by her power.

Nyarlathotep

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/_65.jpg

  • A God Am I: When Chihaya first asks who she is, she simply replies with, "I am God."
  • Badass Boast: "Hehe... I am a being that inhabits the darkness. I exist at the bottom of your imaginations, in the garden of ruin. A being that desires desctruction, and flirts with decay... that delights in grief, and crawls towards chaos... I am Nyarlathotep. The creator of this world, the one and only god. Or that's what I tell people. It's a cool speech, don't you think?"
  • Barrier Change Boss: She adjusts her weapon category during her final battle.
  • Batman Gambit: She allowed Mu to try and overthrow her because it would be entertaining to watch knowing she would fail.
  • The Chessmaster: She set up the events of the game for her own entertainment and even speaks like a Dungeons & Dragons dungeon master at times by stating she "set" the Kusanagi to be Takeru's sword.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: Comes down hard on Chihaya when he refuses to accept her proposal to become the new Adam to her Eve.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Skin as black as the night.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Nyarlathotep?: Upon her defeat.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Her true form. A form fitting her Lovecraftian origins.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Complaining she's bored, declaring herself god, explains how the world is her toy box, and proves her powers by teleporting Benkei and Lancelot over from halfway across the world and taking control of them.
  • Evil Laugh: Most notably after reviving Mu and sending her to attack the Zipang army by reprogramming her body to obey her commands but to leave her mind free.
  • The Evils of Free Will: If the world is on a path to peace, she just resets everything with new settings to get them all to fight again.
  • Faking the Dead: She only pretends to be defeated after the first battle against her just to see Chihaya's expression change from celebrating the victory to both seeing her still alive and seeing all of the heroes be erased by her.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Speaks with a casual, playful tone, all while saying how the world is her playground and the heroes her toys.
  • Forever War: Her main goal, just so she can stay entertained.
  • For Science!: Allowing the darkness to enter Takeru's body and revive her corpse after being killed when destroying the Staff of Narayana.
  • For the Evulz: The world is her toy box and everyone in it her toys. She just wants to be entertained and this is her motive.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: A permanent feature.
  • God Is Evil: She doesn't bat an eye at using her near-omnipotence to mess with everyone and everything.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: The true final boss.
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard: Simply resetting the world again would have been boring, so she gives the Zipang army a fighting chance to find her and fight back. It's her desire for entertainment, this sporting chance, and her reviving Mu one more time to make her fight the party that bring her downfall.
  • I Have You Now, My Pretty: A female to male example as she wants to make Chihaya the Adam to her Eve in creating a new world, regardless of if he accepts the idea or not.
  • Interface Screw: Her rewinding of time causes the dialogue windows to disappear and the screen to briefly go black.
  • It Amused Me: Her reasoning for a lot of the things she does and has done, including rewriting history to turn the historical figures into women: She was curious to see how things would play out that way.
  • It's All About Me: If it doesn't entertain her, it's not worth existing.
  • Jerkass God: Hoo boy, yes.
  • Kill 'Em All: Her decision after her round 1 "defeat" by erasing all of the heroes and rewinding time to set it up so they never exist in the first place.
  • Knight of Cerebus: While the series didn't lack dark moments, her presence makes everything worse.
  • The Left Hand of Doom: Her left hand has an eerie glow in her character portrait.
  • Magnificent Bitch: Everything that happens in the game was set up by her for her own entertainment.
  • The Man Behind the Man: Twisted. She intentionally pushed Mu past the Despair Event Horizon just to get her to defy her and then make her fail.
  • Miss Exposition: A lot gets explained in her introductory scene.
  • Monstrous Humanoid: In her human form, she could almost pass off for a normal schoolgirl if not for her pitch black skin, glowing hands, and demonic eyes.
  • One-Hit Kill: In her final battle, her 10-orb attack is an instant kill. No exceptions without the proper accessory to survive with 1 health.
  • One-Winged Angel: Her Eldritch Abomination form.
  • People Puppets: She can take control of anyone, anywhere. And it's not by magic, she can completely reprogram their entire personalities.
  • Replacement Goldfish: She wants Chihaya to replace Mu and cover the world in chaos.
  • The Reveal: Her merely existing is the big one for the True End route.
  • Sadistic Choice: Every step towards facing off against her is one of these, as she makes the party fight ancient beings or heroes that she has taken control of. If they don't, she wins and the world is reset.
  • Shoot the Dog: After siccing Susano'o on the party, she obliterates him completely after they defeat him and he stops fighting in order to attempt to communicate.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: She receives a collective one from everybody before the final battle.
  • Spoiled Brat: The way she acts and treats everything, with a strong dose of Alpha Bitch mixed in for good measure.
  • This Cannot Be!: After her first defeat, though she was acting. Though after her real defeat, it's played very straight.
  • Time Master: She uses the Staff of Narayana to manipulate time in the world to suit her whims, including introducing Schizo Tech into the world and being responsible for all of the famous heroes becoming women.
  • Villainous Breakdown: She goes down kicking and screaming after her defeat.
  • Walking Spoiler: Her introductory scene and mere existence spoil a great portion of the game for anyone not on the True Ending path.
  • Yandere: Dear lord. It's more likely that she's just toying with Chihaya with the proposal to make him her husband, but the Cold-Blooded Torture she pulls definitely places her in that territory.
