    Main Characters 

Tenzou Motesugi

The protagonist of the first game, Tenzou Motesugi is an ordinary boy who was accidentally shot by the apprentice angel Patako with too many Love Arrows and subsequently given only one day to find his true love or face eternal loneliness. His statistics are determined by a questionnaire from Patako at the very beginning of the game.
  • Ordinary High-School Student: He is initially this, but Patako's screw-up has turned him into a Chick Magnet whose chances to find love have been packed into one day.
  • Legendary in the Sequel: He becomes part of a "Super Popular Legend" talked about around the school in Double Peace.
  • Meaningful Name: Motesugi can be written as "too popular", which describes his predicament.
  • The Power of Love: He is given the Pheromone Shot.
  • Unwanted Harem: Nearly every girl at Sakurazaki Academy wants Tenzou as a result of him having been struck with too many Love Arrows (normally only one arrow is needed; Patako shot him with at least sixteen arrows before realizing her screw-up).
  • The Voiceless: The only character to not have a seiyuu.

Patako

Voiced by: Yukari Tamura
The apprentice angel who happens to be the cause of Tenzou's sudden popularity with the female students and teachers of Sakurazaki Academy. She was tasked with shooting someone with a love arrow as part of an exam, but she screwed up and hit him with at least sixteen arrows instead of just one due to her gun somehow being set to Rapid-Fire mode.

    Love Interests 

Kaname Nonomiya

Voiced by: Yukika Teramoto
Tenzou's childhood friend and active service shrine maiden. She doesn't have confidence in herself and is weak in respect to love. Kaname was scared of ghosts as a child, but overcame it thanks to Tenzou. Now she is obsessed with spirits and is a member of the Haunted places study group.

Kaoruko Sakurazaki

Voiced by: Maaya Uchida
As the eldest daughter of the Sakurazaki conglomerate, Kaoruko boasts overwhelming wealth. Has exceptionally high pride, and does not forgive defiance. As Kaoruko's hobby is painting, her paintings have a style that is highly evaluated.
  • Childhood Friends: She remembers Tenzou modeling for her when he came to retrieve his ball from her garden when they were children.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: If Tenzou chooses her as his true love.
  • Damsel in Distress: Kaoruko is the target of at least one kidnapping attempt when on her route.
  • Ojou: This is to be expected since she's the eldest daughter of the Sakurazaki conglomerate.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: She has a high reputation to uphold.
  • Sequel Non-Entity: She does not physically appear in Double Peace, although there is a statue of her at the school's entrance.

Akira Hibuki

Voiced by: Fumiko Uchimura
A girl who hates evil, and defends justice at the school. Even the teachers and school prefects can't stand against her tongue. While she aims to be respected as a manly older brother, actually she loves cute things.

Aoi Uno

Voiced by: Nozomi Yamamoto
Girl's band "Lovehearts" guitarist, who single-mindedly works to create pure rock 'n' roll. Her family is very poor, but she doesn't care at all.
  • Antenna Hair: Has hair that resembles rabbit ears.
  • Cutting Off the Branches: She is present in Double Peace, which suggests that she did not become Tenzou's girlfriend, and dialogue suggests one of the girls above was.
  • The Immune: In Double Peace, she's immune to the effect of the arrows. Might've been because of previous exposure to their magic though.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: Paying Aoi enough to fund Lovehearts creates that there was a long-term relationship between her and Houdai, which ends with him leaving for America. It's implied that, while she doesn't openly love Houdai, they both are very happy with the arrangement in place.

Characters who debuted in Gal*Gun: Double Peace:

    Main Characters 

Houdai Kudoki

The protagonist of Double Peace. He happened to be out of school during Tenzou's crazy day the previous year due to food poisoning. Thanks to Ekoro, though, he gets to experience the "Super Popular Legend" firsthand.
  • Chick Magnet: A side effect of the full powered magic arrow.
  • Cursed with Awesome: The full powered magic arrow may make him attractive but gave him access to the Pheromone Shot, allowing to defend himself against his pursuers and is powerful enough to hurt many monsters, deflect rockets and, in concentrated dose, can create a bomb which affect all his surroundings. The problem is that if he doesn't find his true love before sunset, he will be hated by everyone; including his childhood friend.
  • The Faceless: The pictures who shows Houdai from his front rarely shows his face, or when it's shown, is always covered.
  • In-Series Nickname: Maya calls him "Ho-nii".
  • One True Threesome: In the Sisters route, he decides than instead of choosing one and potentially break the heart of the other, he goes for both.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: Paying Aoi enough to fund Lovehearts creates that there was a long-term relationship between her and Houdai, which ends with him leaving for America. It's implied that, while she doesn't openly love Houdai, they both are very happy with the arrangement in place.
  • The Power of Love: Like Tenzou before him, he gets the Pheromone Shot.
  • Ridiculously Average Guy: Ekoro notes that nothing about him is particularly outstanding. This is also one of the character profiles you can select for a run, which starts you off with an equal, but low, score in all stats but also makes them easier to increase.
  • Unwanted Harem: As a result of being blasted with a shot at 32 times the power of a normal love shot, nearly everyone is smitten with him. This includes a ghost girl who died ten years before the events of Double Peace.
  • The Voiceless: The only character to not have a seiyuu.

    Love Interests 

Shinobu Kamizono

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/galgun_shinobu.jpg
Voiced by: Uema Emi
One of the youngest in a long line of demon hunters. Shinobu, along with her sister Maya, is one of the few people who have not become infatuated with Houdai.
  • Because Destiny Says So: Apparently was Houdai's intended girlfriend, according to auguries and the Love Goddess. But thanks to the love arrow, he has the ability to change that...
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: During her route, while trying to hunt Kurona, she lets her guard down and was possesed by her. Turning her into a dominatrix trying to torment Houdai. In addition, her and her sister Maya gets possesed during the Kurona and Eroko route.
  • Childhood Friends: Has known Houdai since they were kids.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: If Houdai chooses her in the end.
  • Covert Pervert: Her only response to you "playing a drum solo on her butt" is that she's not into this type of kink. In fact, a number of dialogue choices that raise her affection are the lewder ones.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Weaponized- during her boss fight she'll drop girly magazines on the ground to distract Houdai from her attacks.
  • Early-Bird Boss: Is fought during chapter 3 of the Angel/Demon route, at a point in time when you're likely lacking in the ability to purchase damage upgrades. This makes getting a good time score for that particular fight difficult.
  • Family-Friendly Firearms: Her pistols shoot purple and yellow pellets. Probably justified in that they're most likely magic weapons intended to fight demons and not hurt ordinary humans.
  • Faux Action Girl: Her main role in the story is to be possessed and captured. Though she is stated to have no talent in demon hunting, to the point where she isn't even able to see them normally.
  • Gun Nut: Her arsenal consists of various guns and rocket launchers.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: Pulls a rocket launcher that's roughly the same size as she is from her pocket? Heck, she doesn't even have anywhere to hold her pistols.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Shinobu likes Houdai, but wants Maya to be his girlfriend. Depending on the route, Houdai can subvert this, convincing her that he won't be happy with Maya.
  • Kneel Before Zod: After being infected by demonic influence in 2, she demands that you kneel before her.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Between the two sisters. She gets stuck into a window, giving you a good view of her panties, turns into a dominatrix wearing nothing but her underwear when under Kurona's influence and is just as perverted as Houdai.
  • Oh, No... Not Again!: She shows up in Gal*Gun 2, where she once again falls victim to Kurona's pranks, including getting stuck halfway while trying to climb out a window and getting infected by demonic energy.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: More outgoing and stern, compared to her quiet and kind sister.
  • What Does She See in Him?: Ekoro wonders what Houdai sees in Shinobu. Considering Shinobu actively avoided even talking to him for three years and came off as extremely cold when they finally did talk again, she kinda has a point.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Wears thigh-high stockings while in uniform.

Maya Kamizono

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/galgun_maya.jpg
Voiced by: Hashimoto Chinami
Part of a hidden demon hunter family. Maya left home three years prior to the start of Double Peace and has just returned. For some reason, she is not affected by the love arrow.
  • Childhood Friends: Has known Houdai since they were kids.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: If Houdai chooses her in the end.
  • Faux Action Girl: Like her older sister, her main role in the story is getting possessed and captured. Unlike Shinobu's complete lack of talent and experience, Maya is stated to be very talented and spent three years training with members of her family, giving her little excuse.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Her ninja stars are made out of folded paper and uses explosive dolls modeled after Houdai.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Maya likes Houdai, but would much rather see that he become Shinobu's boyfriend. Depending on the route, Houdai can subvert this, convincing her that he won't be happy with Shinobu.

  • Sibling Yin-Yang: More quiet and kind, compared to her outgoing and stern sister.
  • Stock Ninja Weaponry: Uses a variety of ninja stars and bombs when you fight against her.
  • Transfer Student Uniforms: She wears her old uniform because she just came back.
  • Odd Friendship: During her route she ends up becoming friends with Kurona and helps her prank you.

Ekoro

Voiced by: Yui Horie
The apprentice angel who happens to be the cause of Houdai's day of super popularity. She was tasked with shooting someone with a love arrow as part of an exam, but as a result of rushing to get to him before Kurona, she accidentally hits him with an overcharged shot. She helps Houdai get through his one and only chance to score.
  • Brought Down to Normal: In the ending you get if you complete the Unseen Destiny ending with 0% affection, Ekoro fails her test, and her makeup exam, and is sentenced to becoming human. She proceeds to shack up with Houdai, and becomes his house girlfriend.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Blue hair and blue eyes, as seen here.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Of the "Hey, It's That Character" variety in the first game. Ekoro shows up as an important character during the Doki Doki Carnival mode in the first game's PS3 rerelease.

  • Guns Akimbo: She shoots love arrows from her dual pistols.
  • Interspecies Romance: Houdai can choose to pursue her for a route. While she doesn't become his girlfriend right away, she says that she's interested in staying friends and asks if she can come visit him from Heaven when she has free time.
  • Mission Control: Helps Houdai get through the day.
  • Oh, Crap!: She has a look of panic when she realizes that she charged her love arrow too much.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has light blue hair.

Kurona

Voiced by: Fujita Aya
A Demon student on her own agenda. She adds another layer of trouble for Houdai by causing mischief around the school.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: Anyone affected by her spear becomes immune to Houdai's shots, until the mini-demon nearby is taken out.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Red hair and red eyes, as seen in the upper left corner of this picture here.
  • Cute Monster Girl
  • Friendly Enemy: In 2, despite referring to Risu as "cheri-bimbo," she's actually fairly friendly. She even tries to give back the card key she stole from Risu after losing it, apologizing profusely after Risu and the main character help her find it. Risu says that she'd rather win it back in a fight.
  • Graceful Loser: In 2, she handles being defeated by the main character quite well and hands back Risu's stolen card key without being prompted, saying that they'd more than earned it. She even wishes Risu and the protagonist well before leaving.

  • Hoist by His Own Petard: In her route in Double Peace, she winds up caught be her own demon plant and has to be saved by Houdai.

  • Interspecies Romance: Houdai can choose to romance her instead of the others.
  • Poke the Poodle: She's trying to play annoying pranks on humans, not harm them.
  • The Prankster: Her school assignment is to successfully pull pranks on other people.
  • Pungeon Master: Unsurprisingly, she incorporates "HELL" into a lot of sentences, e.g. "You're going to have a HELL of a time!" It's apparently infectious, since Ekoro will start doing it too when the two of them are talking.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Unskilled, but Strong: In 2 she's noted as having an almost unrivaled amount of raw Demon power, but she's got abysmal grades at Demon University.
  • Verbal Tic: In Japanese, her sentences end with an emphasized "desu". Textual translations turn this tic into working "HELL" into her speech, as detailed in Pungeon Master above.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is pinkish.

    Other Girls 
The various girls of Sakurazaki Academy who are infatuated with Houdai because of the overcharged love arrow.

Tropes that apply to them in general:

  • Mooks: They serve this purpose in every route, even on Unseen Destiny where one lucky girl is who will be romanced.
  • Teacher/Student Romance: Some of them include the school's staff members, like the nurse.
