Game X Rush has a relatively small cast, the better to focus the action on our stars; that said, the characters themselves are often complicated enough to rate a good chunk of infodumpage, and so they'll be listed here to prevent the main page from getting snarled in details.
But it's really a short series, so you may want to read the whole thing first anyway so you know who these people are. We'll wait.
Okay, done? Yes? No? Anyway, we're moving on!
- Bishounen: Even prettier than most, sometimes into Dude Looks Like a Lady territory. Lampshaded when it's used as a major selling-point on fliers advertising the company.
- Bodyguard Crush: Memori's the target of many of these, due to his job being "dreamy bodyguard for female clients.' Presumably the company also takes requests from males, but if so, they're never mentioned.
- Clark Kenting: Memori wears glasses despite having 20/20 vision, because he "hates getting attention" and he's just too good-looking without them on.
- Even the Guys Want Him: Played for comedy, when the judo team ("Can I call you 'Big Brother'?!"), the G-ing bodyguards, and the male kids at the elementary school become big fans of Memori.
- Fridge Logic: If Memori looks enough like his mother - near-identical, in fact - to confuse even Ken at first, shouldn't more people comment on Memori looking like a girl?
- Happily Adopted: Despite his new family being weird, they're still essentially good and a lot healthier than his birth family.
- Hates Being Touched: Possibly as a side-effect from his youth, where his family tended to treat him like a beloved pet (dressing him up, teasing him until he cried) than is probably good for a kid. Completely ignored in the second half of the manga, at least where Yuuki's involved.
- Ho Yay: Once he starts with the internal monologues while gazing soulfully in Yuuki's direction...
- Medium Awareness: A minor version, when he's having an internal rant about Yuuki.'AND I SHOULD KICK MYSELF FOR SAYING HE WAS WORTHWHILE BACK IN CHAPTER ONE TO BEGIN WITH!'
- Megane: Although his personality usually doesn't fit the stereotype.
- Super-Deformed: Usually in response to someone else's bizarre or frustrating statement. Usually overlaps with Face Fault and/or Memori feeling like the Only Sane Man.
- Wholesome Crossdresser: As a gag, and his adopted mother used to dress him up like a girl when he was young.
- Younger Than They Look: Memori doesn't seem like he should be older than Yuuki, and yet he is. This could be a case of Artistic Age except that Yuuki actually mentions it himself.
- Becoming the Mask: Two successive layers: The outer mask which is the happy-go-lucky guy, which he became for Miyuki's sake; the inner mask is the cold psychopath, which he became in order to protect Miyuki's belief. By the end, both masks have been torn off and stomped on by Memori.
- Bishounen: Although more masculine that Memori, most times; Lampshaded when Memori and Himiko both comment that Yuuki's looks would be an additional draw for the company.
- Fridge Logic: Where the heck did Yuuki pick up his assorted assassin-type skills if he just made the assassin thing up?
- Good Eyes, Evil Eyes: You can generally tell if Yuuki's having a traumatic/traumatized/traumatizing moment by how his eyes are drawn.
- Ho Yay: Initially in the Foe Yay way, before shifting to pure Ho Yay in Volume Two. Hello close physical contact!
- Likes Older Women: At one point, Yuuki says that 'his type of girl' is like Himiko, and he seems to be in love with Miyuki; although both are young-looking, Himiko is 28 and Miyuki is 37.
- Mommy Issues: Woo-boy. Does it help if she's not his real mom?
- Psycho for Hire: Seems like a stealth version at the beginning of the series.
- Super-Deformed: Usually to grin obliviously or in confusion.
- Walking the Earth: What Yuuki decides to do at the end of the series, going off to find himself.
- "When will you give up your shabby job and come work for me?"
- Child Prodigy: Thirteen and running a major security firm? And her employees treat her like an adult boss too.
- The Ojou: She's a little young in the main manga, but still this trope to a T.
- Tsundere: she gets like this when the guys treat her like a kid (which she is) or tease her; this is especially noticeable post-timeskip.
Kenjuo "Ken" Fujieda
- "It seems that the past can't stay buried forever."
- Deadpan Snarker: When he deigns to get involved in the conversation.
- Retired Badass: When his dad ran the company, Ken was the sole bodyguard and apparently a very successful one; now, though, he seems to just laze about all day.
- Smoking Is Cool: Almost perpetually, except for when he's hospitalized.
- The Gambler: Although, since the company's always broke, he's not a very good one.
- Tsundere: Towards Himiko; he's always teasing her about her age, but he gives her offhanded compliments and when she's crying over his injuries, he tugs on her hair and tells her not to cry, since he's still alive.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Although she seems sweet and like a big sister, commenting on her age or implying that she has feelings for Ken will set her off.
- Christmas Cake: Although she's youthful looking, Himiko is 28 and Ken mentions this when she's dressed as a maid.Ken: "Good God, woman! Consider your age!" [cue Himiko's rampage.]
- Drives Like Crazy: She's able to keep up with Yuuki's zero-to-sixty evasive driving.
- Eyes Always Shut: Of the smiley kind, except in particularly serious moments.
- Meido: She seems to think they're adorable, telling a maid at Sayako's manor "I'm taking you home with me!", and dresses up in a maid outfit herself.
- Moe: Himiko seems to like cute things, like maids; her flier designs is filled with sparkly flourishes; the teddy bear we assume she bought Yuuki is moe; Himiko mentions how adorable little Memori was when he was being clumsy or scared.
- Onee-sama: Type 1, she's the mothering/big sister kind of person.
- "My sweet and precious child...""I could never live without you."
- Broken Bird: A lifetime of abuse, murdering your abusive husband, losing your son in a fire... Yeah, she's pretty broken.
