    Real World Children 

As a whole

Ari Yamamoto

Debut: Chapter 1

An eleven-year-old boy who is a Draggy fanboy. Because being an only child in the family, he sometimes wishes for a sibling-like figure or a pet so that he won't be alone. And his wish comes true after receiving the gadget.

  • Adorkable
  • All-Loving Hero
    • Guile greets Draggy in a not-so-friendly way at first, but later, Ari tries to stop Yoshino from forcing Guile to fight again because Guile is injured, and eventually saves him from the evolved Starky.
    • Yoshino is a Jerkass, but he can't stand seeing her crying.
  • Expy: To Matsuda Takato.
  • Face Your Fears: Multiple times, and are caused by his Simple-Minded Wisdom.
  • Hates Being Alone: Justified. He's an only child in the family, and this is the reason why he really wants a sibling-like figure or a pet. He is very protective towards Draggy because he's afraid of losing the dragon, which will result in him being alone.
  • Heroic BSoD: After seeing Guile taking a chainsaw that is meant for Draggy.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Type B.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness
  • I Wish It Were Real: He wishes that Draggy is real, and it really happens.
  • Lovable Coward
  • Momma's Boy: He is very close to his mom. Also, the reason why he doesn't want Draggy to evolve is because of his mom's words.
  • Nervous Wreck: He gets worried very easily.
  • Nice Guy: He is very kind.
  • Non-Action Guy: He's easily scared and also pessimistic by nature.
  • Not a Morning Person: The reason he's often late to school in the morning.
  • Simple-Minded Wisdom: Something you often see from him.
    • Why he doesn't want Draggy to evolve? He believes that when one grows up, he/she will forget the one who brought him/her up. He learns a similar thing from his mom's words.
    • What makes him suspect that Draggy is involved in the butcher incident? He believes that dragon loves meat.
  • Tender Tears: He is prone to shedding them, even as a boy.

Yoshino Kobayashi

Debut: Chapter 1 (Dream Sequence), Chapter 2

A thirteen-year-old girl whose ambition is to be the best player in Battle Board. She actually likes powerful characters like Glenn and intends to buy the board, but because she keeps suspecting her deceased father being a Guile fan, she ends up with Guile. Learning that this disables her from summoning a more powerful character, she is so annoyed that she mistreats Guile.

  • Action Girl
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Girl: What is she thinking when people around her talk about her feat in 2020 Battle Board Tournament?
    You cannot and may not be like me, you moron!
  • The Atoner: Chapter 12 onwards. She struggles very hard just to show Guile that she is no longer a cruel person.
  • Berserk Button: Develops one in chapter 13 from her guilt. Don't remind her of how mean she has been towards Guile.
    • This leads to her giving Ari a Neck Lift until Guile intervenes by shooting a tiny lightning bolt to separate them.
  • Daddy's Girl: Justified, because her dad loves her very much.
    • This is the reason why she can't really abandon Guile.
    • Hachiro points out that she and her dad are often seen strolling at Shinjuku Park together.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Determinator: Don't expect her to give up, even if she's losing.
    • After her Villainous BSoD, she knows that Guile won't forgive her for her outrageously cruel acts towards him, but she is willing to give it a try.
    • When she throws a stone at Genie, she misses. Is she giving up? Nope. She looks around to find more stones to throw at Genie just to defend Guile as an act of her atonement.
  • Disappeared Dad: Deceased.
  • Easily Forgiven: Guile gladly forgives her when she apologizes to him.
    • However, other characters don't really forgive her.
  • Entitled Bastard: Overlaps with Ungrateful Bastard. Despite being an utter jerk to Guile, she still expects Guile to fight for her so that she can learn new tricks for the board game. This annoys her grandma as well.
    • She eventually grows out of this.
  • Expy: To Makino Ruki, but is much meaner than Ruki. More like Digimon Kaiser towards Wormmon in the beginning, and by the time she realizes how cruel she has been, she is more like Ken after reverting from Digimon Kaiser and tries very hard to repent.
  • Freudian Excuse: The reason she Kick the Dog is solely for lashing out her anger towards Guile for preventing her from summoning a powerful character from the game.
    • Her grandma scolds and slaps her for this.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Yoshino isn't purely evil, but she is so selfish and childish that her acts are despicable. She appears to have changed by the time chapter 12 comes calling.
    • Heel Realization: The first time is when her grandma reveals that her deceased dad has a PS console, which leads to her thinking that her dad is a Guile Fan Boy. Then she tries to apologize to Guile, but unfortunately, she finds him at the wrong time (unconscious after getting beaten up by Skelly). The second time is when she finds a Guile Fanart by her dad, which leads to the third time: her grandma points out that Yoshino only wants to apologize to Guile just because of her dad's Fan Boy influence; otherwise, she won't.
      • After realizing this, Yoshino truly regrets her acts towards Guile and goes really far just to show Guile that she feels terrible and really wants to repent.
  • Gamer Chick: She is very skilled in the board game version of Chrono Cross.
  • Jerkass
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She isn't as bad as she seems. In chapter 12, she risks her life just to show her desire to change to Guile.
  • Kick the Dog
    • The way she treats Guile is very mean. When she admits it to her grandma, well, her grandma literally flips.
      • She scolds Guile and calls him a wimp whenever he almost loses a fight.
      • She neglects Guile and never lets him eat real food. The only edible thing she gives him is leftovers, and that is a rare occasion. Guile escapes from starvation because he fights often and absorbs data, which is enough to keep him alive.
      • She sometimes wakes Guile up from his sleep by throwing a pail of cold water at him.
      • She forces Guile to fight even though he is injured.
    • Yoshino finally apologizes to Guile for this behavior and tries very hard to repent. She grows out of it as well.
  • Licked by the Dog: After saving Guile's life and risking hers, Guile doesn't only forgive her easily, but he also fights for her sake.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Her suspicion of her dad being a Guile fan grows in chapter 6 after knowing that her dad has a PS console. She regrets her harsh attitude towards Guile, and blames herself for being too mean to him in the past after finding his bruised and battered body. She experiences the Five Stages of Grief at this moment.
  • Pet the Dog: She sometimes gives Guile leftovers to eat. Subverted when it's revealed that she does this just because of her dad.
  • Taking Advantage of Generosity: She promises Guile to help him to be more powerful, and in return, Guile will fight for her so that she can learn new tricks for the board game. Unfortunately, she doesn't mind about Guile, and only cares for the reward Up to Eleven.
    • Finally grows out of this.
  • Tears of Remorse: Starts shedding them since chapter 6. Sheds them again in chapter 12.
  • Tsundere: Type A.
  • Villainous BSoD: Goes to this in chapter 10. First, after finding out her father's book that contains his wish of having Guile appearing in the real world. Second, after her grandma points out that she'll still mistreat Guile if not because of her dad.

Chikara Jikan

Debut: Chapter 3

An eleven-year-old boy who comes from the famous 6A class of Shinjuku Elementary. When Battle Board is getting trendy, he hopes that his dad buys him a Serge board because Serge is a powerful character. Unfortunately, because of his dad's strict nature of educating him, Chikara ends up with Starky.

    Game Characters (The Partners) 

As a whole

Draggy

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Draggy_2346.png

Debut: Chapter 1 (mentioned), Chapter 2

A yellow dragon who is about the size of a human child due to Ari's fan art of him.

  • Man Bites Man: Dragon bites...its enemies. Draggy fights this way when he isn't breathing fire.

Guile

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Guile_2864.png

Debut: Chapter 1 (Dream Sequence), Chapter 2 (Dream Sequence and mentioned), Chapter 3

A masked magician who wishes to be more powerful so that he can resolve his rivalry issue. In actuality, it is just a lie, because he thinks that his true wish sounds silly for a Jerkass like Yoshino, and even the Nice Guy Ari because he is afraid that Ari will go to extreme lengths to help him. All he wants in his life is just a family.

  • All-Loving Hero: Knowing that Genie is supposed to be on the good side, he tries to persuade Genie to return to the good side. Genie refuses, but Guile holds back in the fight. Genie threatening to kill the children after killing Guile manages to anger Guile, which results in Guile gaining an upper hand. And when Genie is about to harm Draggy with a chainsaw, Guile completely loses patience.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: Knowing no defensive spells/skills, Guile relies on his inborn stamina and sheer determination for his defense. This enables him to attack whenever he wants without having to waste time for defense.
  • Awesome, but Impractical / Necessary Drawback: Lightning Blast is powerful, but it takes a long time to cast it. Guile is often interrupted when charging up for this move.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis
  • Badass Armfold
  • Badass Baritone: Has the deepest voice out of the casts.
  • Badass Boast: "Even though my body is on the verge of collapsing… I WILL NEVER GIVE UP IN MY HEART!"
  • Badass Finger Snap: He can create lightning by snapping his fingers.
  • Badass Longcoat: A variant of dusters. He takes it off when he's getting serious. Cue Shirtless Scene.
  • Bad Liar: Despite his name, he is this. He can't get through the children with his lie about why he cries. He attempts a classic Sand In My Eyes, which he does awkwardly.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Justified. As he Desperately Craves Affection, his kindness to you will often be Up to Eleven if you're nice to him.
  • Being Good Sucks / No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Because he is unwilling to injure innocent children like Draggy and Starky, Yoshino gets mad and calls him a wimp. In actuality, he truly hopes that Yoshino cares for him, but for the said reason, he has to leave Yoshino because the girl declares that she doesn't care about him anymore (though her memories of her deceased dad often haunts her). She also gives him a loud "Go away!". Ouch.
    • It's even worse in his past. Because Viper had saved him many times when he was young, he refused to fight Riddel in the finals of El Nido Wizard Tournament because he was afraid that he might harm Riddel. This resulted in his poor performance and loss, which eventually led to his mother performing a self-destruct in front of him out of pure rage because of Guile's 'stupid' kindness and continued with him going mad.
  • The Berserker: He becomes reckless and only aims for the kill when enraged. His lack of tactics when angered is his Achilles' Heel which leads to The Worf Effect.
  • Berserk Button: Just try hurting and/or threatening his little friends in front of him.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: And Guile won't hesitate to annihilate you.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: Ari first views him as this, but Guile is actually a bit chatty, although he isn't the one who starts a conversation most of the time.
  • Bird People: His evolved form is a black eagle man.
  • Black Mage
    • An Ice Person: He only uses ice spells once. He is capable of conjuring an icicle, which he uses to cut his own ankle to get some blood to feed Draggy.
    • Casting a Shadow: Most of his spells are enchanted with darkness.
      • Annihilation Wave involves firing dark energy blast which vaporizes the enemy in a hit.
    • Dishing Out Dirt: He never uses earth spells, but has knowledge of it. This is how he develops Tremor Fist.
    • Making a Splash: He sometimes uses water spells when dealing with fire.
    • Playing with Fire: He can conjure Fireballs and shoot a gush of fire from his hands.
    • Shock and Awe: He uses lightning-based spells most of the time.
  • Broken Ace: Guile is a powerful Black Mage with insane endurance. He also possesses fatherly nature and a kind heart, which makes most of his friends (the children) look up to him. But by the time chapter 11 comes calling, Guile is terribly broken to the point he Desperately Craves Affection and doesn't really mind if people treat him like a crap, as long as the people just show him a little bit of affection and concern towards him.
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center / Emotional Bruiser: Although Guile is more of being Unskilled, but Strong in melee combat, he is very tall (he is stated to be at least half a meter taller than Yoshino, a thirteen-year-old girl) and athletic. But he likes befriending children and being loved. Plus Tender Tears.
    • Chapter 11: Guile lets Draggy use his coat as a blanket and Pip sleep on him to keep them warm for the whole cold night.
  • Cannot Spit It Out / Mangst: He can never tell his past and/or his true wish to other people, because they are likely to make him cry. Cue Dark and Troubled Past.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: BIG TIME! His acts border Martyr Without a Cause and often cause Ari and Draggy to complain.
    • When Ari scolds him for his acts (protecting Draggy and Pip, cutting his ankle to get some of his blood to feed Draggy), he says that it's an instinct and becomes sad.
    • When it's cold at night, he automatically takes off his coat and covers Draggy with it. This leaves him shirtless for the whole night.
      • He holds Pip close to him to keep Pip warm at the same night.
  • The Coats Are Off: When he does this, he's serious about pulverizing you. And he enters a...
  • Cosmic Plaything: Combined with his Dark and Troubled Past, Guile is this. Things don't get better when he emerges in the real world, where he becomes a partner to the Jerkass Yoshino. But it gets better after he leaves Yoshino and makes some friends.
  • Covered with Scars: By arc 2. (Word of God)
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Tremor Fist is extremely powerful, but it costs Guile the use of his arm. Subverted in chapter 12, because it's Guile's way of throwing a punch that injures his arm. After receiving a lesson in punching from Akira, Guile can use it without having to sacrifice an arm.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: This has yet to be revealed, but there are a lot of hints, particularly in chapter 9 and 11. Guile seems to keep losing his True Companions over and over again.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: His spells are mostly enchanted with darkness, but he is easily the kindest of all the casts.
  • Desperately Craves Affection: Justified. Word of God says that this is related to his Dark and Troubled Past. Nothing pleases him more than your hugs and concern for him.
    • When Ari hugs him and cries because of his concern, Guile sheds Tears of Joy, clumsily attempts a Sand In My Eyes, and ends up awkwardly admitting that he likes being loved.
  • Determinator: Related to Papa Wolf. Despite having been shredded by a chainsaw, blown away by a tornado, and beaten to within an inch of his life, Guile absolutely refuses to stay down until the children are safe.
  • Domino Mask: Loses it in the fight against Genie. This saves his face from being mangled by Genie's chainsaw.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending : In chapter 12, Yoshino finally accepts him as her friend; something he has been wishing for.
  • Expy: Somewhat like Renamon in terms of role. Character-wise, Guile is more like Whitebeard, Son Gohan, Kenshiro, and Vash the Stampede merged into one.
  • Extreme Doormat: To Yoshino at first, because he actually wishes that Yoshino shows more attention to him.
  • Flight / Power Floats
  • Flying Brick / Flying Firepower: Although Guile is fairly fast, speed isn't his forte.
  • Friendly Rivalry: With Riddel.
  • Friend to All Children: Well, mostly.
  • Full-Contact Magic: Tremor Fist.
  • Gentle Giant: If Draggy is in his normal form, Guile is easily the tallest of all people in the team. And he is a Nice Guy.
  • Go Mad from the Revelation: Suffers this once after his mother self-destructs in front of him. When this happens, he smashes everything on his path and has to be held on place by all the Acacia Devas and some Acacia Dragoons so that Luccia can inject tranquilizer on him. He gets better thanks to Riddel and Luccia.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: He never receives a proper training in using his fists. He learns this by watching his dad brawling with wild animals and from some informal lessons from Akira.
  • Heroes Fight Barehanded: After losing his rod.
  • Heroic Build: Not overly muscular (athletic build is the closest to him), but he does have broad shoulders, a perky chest, a large back, a narrow waist, and a flat yet muscular abdomen. And he is extremely tall. Justified, because he was implied to have come from wilderness (has yet to be revealed).
  • Heroic Resolve: Most of the time. Often overlaps with Heroic Second Wind.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Subverted because Guile is a Determinator who is Made of Iron. He receives Genie's air chainsaw that is meant for Draggy to his chest, but he survives, even though it's the second time he gets attacked by it.
    • Downplayed in chapter 8, when Guile cuts his ankle to get his blood so that he can feed it to a hungry Draggy. He only ends up with a drop foot after that.
  • Heroic Second Wind: A lot. Often overlaps with Heroic Resolve.
    • When he fights Shadow Cat, the beast's claws have gone clean through his right clavicle and crippled his right arm. Being a right-handed mage, this seems to be a disadvantage for him, but not until he resorts to using his uninjured left arm. A Determinator he is.
    • Despite having received forceful punches to his vital organs and a concussive blow from Skelly, the wound on his ankle reopened, and taken Draggy's Cough Drop directly on his chest, he still continued to figure out a way to defeat Skelly. This is because he has promised Ari to take good care of Draggy and grown to like Draggy and Pip because they have been nice to him.
      • Not to forget that the injuries (broken ribs and bruises) he sustained from Skelly in the fight earlier and the cut he created on his ankle to get some of his blood to feed a hungry Draggy have not healed completely.
    • Happens TWICE in chapter 12. He is already severely weakened when Genie manages to drive a chainsaw into his chest for the first time and blow him away with a tornado. But when Genie tries to harm Draggy with the same spell, Guile manages to spring back into action to protect Draggy, which leads to him receiving another chainsaw to his chest, right beside the first gash. After that, Genie exploits the injuries and stomps them, causing much pain to Guile until Yoshino intervenes by bashing her head with a stone and shoving her away. Guile, who has been incapacitated, finally springs back into action after a heartwarming talk with Yoshino. Thanks to Yoshino's care towards him, Guile evolves and ultimately defeats Genie, and collapses afterwards due to the injuries he has sustained.
  • I Gave My Word / The Fettered: Once he has made a promise, he will do anything to keep it.
  • I Have the High Ground: He likes resting on a tree like a bird, and is capable of spying everything below by standing on a tree and hiding behind the leaves.
  • I Just Want to Have a Family
  • Kamehame Hadoken: Lightning Blast and Annihilation Wave (after evolving).
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Has yet to be revealed. Word of God says that he becomes one later on.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy
  • Made of Iron: Downplayed. It does take A LOT to knock him out, but the injuries he receives often reduce his effectiveness in combat.
    • He barely recovers from broken ribs, but the injuries don't slow him down. After that, he takes a ridiculous amount of damage when fighting Skelly, but he can still fight.
    • It's worth noting that having a laceration on the head doesn't affect him at all. And having three gaping wounds on the chest which are caused by chainsaws? He can still stand up and fight back. See also Overdrawn at the Blood Bank.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: When he's mad.
  • Magic Staff: It can be for smacking opponents and shooting lightning. Guile actually uses this to help him in melee combat, but after losing it, he really shows that the rod is just an addition to his prowess in close combat.
  • Major Injury Underreaction: Despite being visibly hurt, he always lets out an I'm Okay!. He does this so that people don't have to worry too much about him as shown in chapter 8.
  • Manchild: Still retains a child's innocence despite being an adult.
    • He still thinks that wishing under a falling star can grant him a wish.
  • Man in White: His outfit.
  • Manly Tears / Tender Tears: He's probably the biggest badass, but is also a softie.
  • Megaton Punch: Especially when he's mad.
  • Men Don't Cry: To be frank, he cries more often than other characters.
  • Mood-Swinger: A little.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Long-Haired Pretty Boy, Heroic Build without being overly muscular, a number of Shirtless Scenes... See The Coats Are Off and Shirtless Scene below. His regular outfit isn't very concealing either.
    • Workout Fanservice: Chapter 12 has him training how to punch and do some knuckles push-ups while being shirtless.
  • Nice Guy: He is naturally gentle and nice. Up to Eleven if you're nice to him.
    • Although Yoshino has been very cruel to him, he doesn't seem to mind. He gladly forgives her.
    • His kindness often reduces his effectiveness in combat and turns him into a Stone Wall.
  • Normally, I Would Be Dead Now: He's still alive and able to stand up after having a chainsaw driven into his chest three times. At the same time, he has a laceration on his head. What.
  • Not a Morning Person: And he snores. He sleeps so soundly that sometimes Yoshino has to wake him up with a pail of cold water. Draggy also has to bite his hand to wake him up. He gets a bit cranky if he's abruptly woken up.
  • Only a Flesh Wound: While the consequences of the injuries are fairly realistic, this trope still happens frequently.
    • Between chapter 7 and 8, Guile is still alive despite having broken ribs and no medical attention for almost half a day. In addition, he has been pummeled by a storm of Weaponized Ball.
    • In chapter 12, despite having a laceration on his head after getting knocked away to a tree, Guile keeps fighting. But what makes it worse is that the right side of his chest is shredded by a chainsaw three times. And he is still alive and able to stand up and fight back.
      • However, after defeating Genie, he collapses with an appearance that is similar to a living dead, indicating that the blood loss affects him severely.
  • Overdrawn at the Blood Bank: Chapter 12. Guile is bleeding out from the laceration on his head. Then he is shredded by a chainsaw three times. And he suffers Blood from the Mouth. But he is still alive and able to fight back before finally collapsing. That is after annihilating Genie.
    • But the blood loss affects him as well.
  • Papa Wolf: Related to Determinator. Don't threaten and/or harm the children when Guile is around. Also, Guile never lets a child risk his/her life for him. When this happens, he will intervene no matter what.
  • Parental Substitute: Implied. He treats Draggy and Pip like his own children. Complete with Papa Wolf.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Just look at the aftermath of his rage. He causes tremor, cracks the ground and the tree trunks, and blows off the leaves on the trees and hedge with a furious roar. He also shakes West Shinjuku with this.
    • And Tremor Fist. Guile is able to smash a giant tree in a blow with it.
      • Chikara remarks that Guile's Tremor Fist is a devastating move. If it doesn't kill the foe, it has broken all the bones in the foe's body, which leads to paralysis. Even if it misses the target slightly, the invisible shockwaves it creates can still severely injure the target.
      • This move also breaks Genie's arm and causes Blood from the Mouth due to Genie barely dodging it. You won't want it to hit you directly for sure.
  • Post-Victory Collapse: Often happens after winning a major fight, though Guile is still conscious after that.
    • After defeating Skelly, Guile finally collapses due to his injuries from the earlier fights.
    • A heartwarming one after defeating Genie.
  • Purple Is Powerful: His lightning attacks are purple in color.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Happens frequently.
    • He is an Extreme Doormat to Yoshino, but when Yoshino forces him to kill Starky, he snaps because Starky is just a child.
    • Being an All-Loving Hero, he tries to convince Genie to be a good person again and holds back in the fight, but Genie ignores him beats him quite easily. However, when Genie says that she'll go after the children after killing Guile, Guile finally snaps and fights back.
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Rated M for Manly
  • Screaming Warrior: Only behaves like this when angered.
  • Shockwave Punch: Tremor Fist.
  • Signature Move: Lightning Blast and Tremor Fist.
  • Squishy Wizard: In-universe characters tend to view him being physically weak, but it is in fact, meticulously averted. Aside from having an arsenal of powerful spells, Guile can fight with Good Old Fisticuffs. Plus Super Strength, Made of Iron, and Heroic Build.
    • He can do over thirty knuckle push-ups without a pause. If Akira hadn't remarked about this feat (which he finds surprising), which causes Guile to lose his concentration, Guile should've continued doing the push-ups.
  • The Stoic
  • Super Strength: He stops a huge rolling steel ball by using his hands without any magic power.
    • Yoshino's element swipe takes this Up to Eleven. The memorable one is when he catches Snibgoblin's arm and spins before throwing the creature away. Guile can also carry Draggy to the air with a hand without breaking a sweat (except as the side effect of the element swipe). Mind you, Draggy weighs over two hundred kilograms.
      • Talking about Draggy, Guile can only lift the dragon a few centimeters above the ground without element swipe from Yoshino. However, he is still strong enough to drag Draggy with a hand.
    • Unstoppable Rage also enhances his strength.
      • He pounds the ground and sends a column of dirt shooting skywards. Followed with a rain of soil and pebbles.
      • He snaps Skelly's neck and knocks his skull off his skeleton with a kick.
      • He breaks Genie's nose and knocks her across the park with a punch.
  • Taking the Bullet: For Draggy. He foils Genie's attempt to hurt Draggy with a chainsaw with this.
  • Tareme: See here. They reflect his kind heart.
  • Think Nothing of It: He has Chronic Hero Syndrome anyway.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: In close combat. He wins in term of strength, but loses when it comes about dexterity.
  • Unstoppable Rage: When he snaps and takes of his coat, RUN!
    • Otherwise exploit his lack of tactics to win.
      • Basically, Guile doesn't have any specific fighting strategy other than Attack! Attack! Attack! and killing enemies as soon as he sees a chance. But his Unstoppable Rage makes it even worse because he doesn't wait for the chance anymore. He'll just blindly charge his enemy.
  • When All You Have Is a Hammer...: His Tremor Fist comes from this. He uses the knowledge of Ground Punch in earth magic. He smashes his target instead of the ground.
  • The Worf Effect
    • Worf Had the Flu
      • He is holding back against the evolved Starky, because he doesn't really want to fight as Starky doesn't do anything wrong.
      • He is also holding back against Chisiki, because Chisiki is a human from the real world.
      • He thinks of destroying Skelly completely after discovering that Skelly can reattach his bones whenever they are separated. However, he takes too long charging a spell, which leaves him open to Skelly's attack.
  • Would Not Shoot a Good Guy: Whatever you do, he will never hurt someone who seems kind or has been nice to him, and he may resort to defending for the whole battle or holding back. This is deconstructed in his past and leads to him losing his sanity.
    • In chapter 12, he tries to persuade Genie to return to the good side. He also admits that he doesn't like fighting against the good guys.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: The reason why he refuses to attack Draggy and Starky.
  • You Can Barely Stand: Very common.
    • After getting hit by Skelly's storm of Weaponized Ball, Guile is still standing, albeit it only takes a punch to the gut to knock him down (not senseless yet).
    • He still sustains those injuries in the next fight against Skelly, in which Skelly beats him with Good Old Fisticuffs and causes Blood from the Mouth, hits him with a concussive blow, reopens the wound on his left ankle, and lets him take Draggy's Cough Drop directly on his chest. Guile is still standing, and Skelly mocks him that with a poke of a finger, he will keel over.
    • In his battle against Genie, after taking the second chainsaw to his chest and snapping at Genie, Guile stands with shaky limbs and blurry vision.
  • You Leave Him Alone!: When the Tutanshaman Brothers want to have a two on two against him and Draggy, he tells both of them to face him at once.
  • You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry: Veeeeery appropriate.

  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Obviously shown in chapter 6 after delivering a Tap on the Head to Guile. He then says that a mage-type being is not a problem to him.
  • Badass Bookworm: A programmer.
  • Badass Longcoat: He wears a trench coat.
  • Badass Normal: A human, but dares to provoke Guile.
  • Cool Shades: Always wear them.
  • The Cracker: He is developing a program to eliminate the beings.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: As a real world human, he manages to knock out an angry Guile without a problem. Subverted, because it is revealed that Guile is actually holding back.
  • Expy: To Mitsuo Yamaki.
  • It's Personal: After getting taunted by Saint.
  • Jerkass: Towards the beings.
    • Jerk Ass Has A Point: He believes that a Foreign Being is dangerous. It's partially true, because some game characters aren't good at all.
      • Take Skelly as an example. He threatens to kill Akira, Kotaro, and Yukari for preventing him from killing Guile.
  • Laughing Mad: This often baffles Ami.
  • Staring Down Cthulhu: He is not afraid of Guile, and even pushes his Berserk Button.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: The reason why he wants to eliminate the Foreign Beings is because he knows the risk of having them wandering in the real world.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: He can easily kill Guile (who is holding back because Chisiki is a human from the real world) and Pip if he wants to, but he prefers letting them die a painful death by activating his Data Cleaner Program.
  • Workaholic: He hastes to finish the Data Cleaner Program.
