- Battle Aura: The main purpose of HGs is to provide strong Status Buffs to surrounding teammates via commands and signals, similar to field commanders giving orders to their troops. It's only fitting that handguns were often the primary firearms for field officers during the early 20th century.
- Innate Night Vision: In addition to the buffs they provide, HGs also extend the visual range of their echelons by one node during night battles. Amusingly, as is demonstrated in the official 4-koma by AC130, an echelon does not lose their night vision benefits should the HG fall in combat.

- Artist: riririririririVoiced by: Asuka Itou"Hehe ♪ Commander, being able to meet you here, I am thoroughly delighted."
- Combat Sadomasochist: She finds receiving pain to be equally as exciting as inflicting it. Off the battlefield, she often behaves in a manner befitting that of a dominatrix, especially towards the commander.
- Crippling Overspecialization: PPK's utility is severely stunted unless grouped with a three-RF squad, or a three-MG plus 1 SG formation, as her tile buffs only cover one spot in front of her and the entire backline.
- Fashionable Asymmetry: Different-length socks, the right one reaching higher than the left.
- Glass Cannon: She has incredibly high S-ranked Evasion in exchange for an absolutely dismal C-ranked HP rating.
- Japanese Pronouns: Notable here because in the JP script (and thus voiceover), she's... kind of making up her own pronoun. She refers to herself as "atakushi", which is a bizarre hybrid of "atashi" and "watakushi" and is, uh, not really a generally-accepted real pronoun. This appears to be her attempt at coming across as both high-and-mighty and also youthful; it's clearly meant to be up to the viewer how it really comes across.
- Nice Shoes: She's wearing platform slip-ons with six inch soles.
- Starter Mon: Starting players will gain her for free as achievement reward for killing one enemy for the first time. And Map 1-1 has exactly one enemy.
- Artist: SpirtieVoiced by: Eriko Matsui"What a fateful encounter! Never in my imagination would I have expected to meet you here, Commander."
- Guns Akimbo: Notably, her two guns have different finishes, the left one being stainless and the right one being blued.
- Idiot Hair: Sports a short strand sprouting from the top of her head.
- Wearing a Flag on Your Head: Befitting her use of one of the most iconically-American firearms ever, she wears a tie with the American flag pattern on it.
Nagant M1895 note
- Artist: Kinoshita NekoVoiced by: Narumi Shinohara"You're quite the odd one for having tastes in someone as old as I, aren't you?"
- Dub Name Change: Gets renamed to simply "M1895" in the English release.
- The Napoleon: She is deeply insecure about her short stature despite her veterancy pride, and expresses annoyance at Commanders patting her head or treating her like a child. She secretly drinks milk, in hopes of (eventually) getting taller.
- Older Than They Look: Repeatedly refers to herself as an old lady and other T-Dolls as children, despite her appearance, which does hold some water since the Nagant M1895 was invented over a hundred years ago as of the game's release, and three-quarters into another century by the game's 2060 setting.
- Artist: とりVoiced by: Toru Kanae"This is... the fated encounter!"
- Guns Akimbo
- Idol Singer: If her lines are to be believed. She refers to training as "rehearsals", her comrades at home as "fans", the echelon's movement zone as her "stage", and dislikes being the "center". She outright confirms this with her Valentine's Day quote.P38: "Idols are prohibited from having romantic relationships. So, please settle with this obligatory chocolate for now, kyaaaha~♪"
- Artist: Bison CangshuVoiced by: Koga Aoi"It's time for FNP-9's... glorious...debut! Commander... please give me... your support from now on..."
- Dub Name Change: The English version initially renamed her to FFP-9, in line with most of the other FN guns, before eventually restoring her normal name and instead giving the A.K.A.-47 treatment to her manufacturer, calling her "FF FNP-9".
- Idol Singer: She talks as if she's one of these.
- Starter Mon: She can be unlocked for free by stepping on one random ("?"-marked on the map) node for the first time.
- Artist: XQVoiced by: Iori Nomizu
- Nice Hat
- Only Known by Their Nickname: She prefers being called "Viking" rather than "MP-446".
- Third-Person Person: Usually refers to herself in the third person rather than directly.
Heckler & Koch USP Compact
- Artist: AixiooVoiced by: Arise Sato
- Shrinking Violet: She is awfully shy, usually trips over her words when she has to speak, and doesn't want people to pay too much attention to her. Well, people except the Commander, of course.
- Artist: 林大BVoiced by: Arise Sato
- Doom Magnet: Owing to her namesake's coloured history, Bren Ten is worried about G&K and the Commander going bankrupt upon adopting her.
- Rare Guns: A pistol using the unusual 10mm Auto, the Bren Ten was produced in very limited numbers, approximately 14,000 units made before the company went under. Subsequently, many manufacturers have tried bringing it back to the market, but none have succeeded, at least one going bankrupt before selling a single pistol.
- Artist: 废人Voiced by: Hiromi Sakuma
- Break Out the Museum Piece: Justified, considering the game's setting. The Tokarev and its variants are still widely used around the world by many countries within the Soviet/Russian sphere of influence.Tokarev: I'll say it only this time...at least I was used for a century.
- Going Commando: The cosplay guide released with her "Griffon Dancer" costume shows that she's not wearing any underwear beneath said outfit.
- Gratuitous Russian: Her Logistics lines are in Russian.
- Tender Tears: Her Heavy Damage, Retreat, and Repair lines give off this, almost to the degree of Tears of Remorse.
- Thousand-Yard Stare: Her "Griffon Dancer" costume has her look at the viewer with empty, hollow eyes giving the impression that she has seen some shit.
- Silk Hiding Steel: Her official profile describes her as being polite, approachable, and innocent but also highly independent and capable of holding her own should the situation require it.
- Skewed Priorities: Her damaged art for her "Griffon Dancer" costume has her smitten by a cute kitten while under fire from a rain of arrows, including one that is stuck in her head.
- Artist: spirtieVoiced by: Sora Amamiya
- Big Eater: She seems to always be hungry and eager to eat, and would hurry to finish missions just to go back to base and continue stuffing her face with snacks. Unlike SPAS-12, the Weight Woe seems to have missed her.
- D-Cup Distress: Implied.Astra: Why do girls have bigger chests than boys?
- Artist: 防弹乳牛Voiced by: Takao Koizumi
- Artist: 林檎爱すVoiced by: Ayaka Itatani
- Exotic Eye Designs: Both of her iris are cross-shaped.
- Flare Gun: Her active skill which is only usable during night battles. She fires off a flare upon activation, which provides an accuracy buff to your T-Dolls.
- Idiot Hair: Sports a massive strand curling out from underneath her Nice Hat.
- Stripperific: She wears only a black bikini underneath her jacket. To make matters worse, she finds the jacket too stuffy and wants to take it off. Her idea for a Halloween costume consists of an apron and a pumpkin mask, with no other clothing mentioned.
- Artist: 河马Voiced by: Sumire Uesaka
- Gratuitous Russian: Some of her story dialogue has this.
- Little Miss Snarker: She roasts Nagant M1895 as she is briefing you on the mission to rescue her, all while M1895 is still patched through comms.
- The Leader: Her profile states the she is a humble yet highly gifted leader.
- Nice Hat: Wears an absolutely massive ushanka adorned with a red star.
- Sergeant Rock: Her Chapter 3 Night Battle interactions show that she likes to run a professional and well-planned operation. That said, her reinforcements ended up being AK-47 and SKS...Makarov: Sorry, we need INFILTRATORS, not two Crazy Ivans.
- The Strategist: She's a gifted strategist who even assisted RO635 with managing both AR Team and Palette Squad while they were engaging Dreamer.
Norinco QSZ-92 note
- Artist: 莲子Voiced by: Suzuko Mimori
- The Scrooge: She is remarkably frugal and hates wasteful resource expenditure.
- Upper-Class Twit: Implied. Her profile states that she was born to the upper class and that she can be clueless at times.
- Artist: Rain LanVoiced by: Sora Tokui
- Guns Akimbo
- Tsundere: Somewhat. One of her secretary lines tells you to stop gaping at her because you look stupid; another one has her using a "special skill" of observing humans on you, telling you that you won't get away.

- Artist: sola7764Voiced by: Naomi Mukaiyama
- Fragile Speedster: PSM has the highest Evasion out of any T-Doll in the game, period. The catch is that her HP is pretty much peanuts in the face of mid-to-late game mobs owing to her being a HG.
Heckler & Koch HK45
- Artist: 雪樱樱Voiced by: Ayaka Fujii
- Idol Singer: Her "Miracle☆Start" outfit turns her into this.
- Steam Punk: Her two available outfits are styled after this.
- Artist: PHIVoiced by: Ryouko Maekawa
- Visual Pun: Her pet seal is a nod to the US Navy SEALs, who used a variant of the P226 from 1984 to 2015.
- Artist: ac130Voiced by: Arisa Kouri
- Combat Medic: She dresses up as one with her "Walking Operating Table" costume, complete with medkit. This is purely cosmetic, however, as it doesn't actually let her heal anyone.
- Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: Can be difficult to spot due to the small size of her sprite relative to the screen, but GSh-18's eyes go dim near the end of her "death" animation.
- Guns Akimbo: She starts out with just one gun, but when her skill is active, she pulls out a second pistol and shoots with both guns. Unlike other guns that use two guns all the time, this has an actual effect, as she's hitting twice each time she shoots while the skill is active.
- Secret Character: Secret is kind of a stretch, as she has her own entry in the Index with unlocking requirements, but GSh-18 is so far the only T-Doll to be unlocked exclusively via achievements. To recruit her, the player must purchase 5 volumes of the official comic from the Comic Stand in the Cafe, at a total cost of 3,000 batteries. Unlike other T-Dolls awarded from achievements, GSh-18 simply cannot be crafted later nor does she drop from events.
- Her costume ramps this Up to Eleven by requiring the purchase of 10 comic volumes.
- Artist: 小吃Voiced by: Asuka Kawakami
- Artist: M.vvVoiced by: Aya Suzaki
- Cute Little Fangs: She has a very small one that's visible in her character art.
- Narcissist: She's extremely proud of her own popularity, a fact that she likes to remind everyone of.
- The Rival: She is the self-proclaimed rival to M1911, though the latter doesn't seem to notice. In one of her secretary lines, she is under the impression that M1911 hates her and that she wishes to get along.
- This may allude to the real-life replacement of the M1911 with the Beretta M9 as the standard-issue sidearm of the US Armed Forces in order to meet NATO requirements.
- Verbal Tic: Her lines often end with なの (-nano).
- Artist: 油库狸Voiced by: Izumi Chiba
- Underground Monkey: The military variant of the MP-446, differing only in the strength of the barrel to handle overpressure armor-piercing ammunition. Interestingly, Viking was in the game first.
- Artist: shin556Voiced by:
- Artist: 十三天Voiced by:"I heard that I can do some work here that isn't so close to human contact... Wait, wait! You, are you human?!"
- Afraid of Blood: To the point that she gets incredibly nervous around humans.
- TEC-9: "Whenever I think of humans and their bodies, with all those internal organs and blood in there... Good heavens, it's crazy if you think about it!"
- Hitman with a Heart: She used to work as an assassin for a certain "Organization", but later escaped because she can't bear to turn her knife on human beings.
Heckler & Koch VP70Mnote
- Artist: 原子DanVoiced by:
Colt Single Action Army
- Artist: saruVoiced by: Aimi Tanaka
- Cowgirl: Her design theme, owing that the SAA is widely associated with The Wild West.
- Dub Name Change: Inverted for the English release. She's still identified as a "Colt Revolver" in the original version, but the English release outright calls her SAA.
- Eyepatch of Power: Her digi-mind upgrade gives her one over her right eye, with her damaged artwork in this state revealing the eye underneath is now white.
- Misidentified Weapons: The revolver that the T-Doll is seen with in her artwork is not an SAA, but is instead a Ruger Blackhawk, which is very similar to the SAA but not quite.
- Older Than They Look: One of her lines as secretary ("You want to know about my age? ...Let's not talk about my age.") implies this; likely a reference to the age of her namesake firearm (first designed in 1873 - by the time of the game, it's almost two hundred years old).
- Sniper Pistol: At least as far as art goes, as her digi-mind upgrade grants her a revolver with a significantly longer barrel.
- Trademark Favorite Drink: Cola drinks. She hardly has a line not talking about it. Her animations after her digi-mind upgrade particularly pronounce this: in battle, she pulls out her whip and grabs a bottle from off-screen as her victory animation, and in the dorms she always has a bottle in hand.
- Whip It Good: Befitting her cowboy imagery, she gets one with her digi-mind upgrade.
- Artist: LpipVoiced by: Chihiro Inamoto
- Blown Across the Room: She is blown out of her tile and tumbles away in her death animation. Supposedly she is only third in distance behind Murata Himeko and Colt SAA.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Only one of her costumes has her wearing any kind of sensible footwear.
- Fortune Teller: Her character profile states that she enjoys predicting the outcomes of events, and that fortune telling is one of her favorite hobbies. Supposedly, other T-Dolls say that her predictions are rather accurate. In her lines, she is often telling the Commander various forecasts and predictions.
- Leotard of Power: Her classic outfit appears to be a mix between a leotard and a babydoll.
- Mechanically Unusual Fighter: Her skill "Museum of War Philosophy" provides class specific buffs, as opposed to other HG skills that typically provide universal buffs. HG/SMG T-dolls receive an evasion buff, AR/RF T-dolls receive a bonus damage buff, and SG/MG T-dolls receive an accuracy bonus.
- Memetic Hand Gesture: Her signature Finger Gun pose on her artwork and victory animations.
- Tranquil Fury: Her profile states that she is actually quite hot-headed and impatient beneath her normally calm and cool exterior.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A.
- Artist: 鳗鱼子Voiced by: Eri Kitamura
- Idiot Hair: Somehow sporting a lightning bolt-shaped one jutting out from the side of her bangs.
- Money Fetish: If her quotes are any indication, Stechkin has a very pronounced love of money and other material objects. She even pesters the Commander for New Year money as part of her seasonal adjutant lines.
- Nice Hat: She wears a pristine white ushanka similar to many of her fellow Russian firearm T-Dolls.
- Not Drawn to Scale: The Stechkin APS is quite huge in reality owing to the complex fire control systems in its receiver. However, it is drawn as a very small sidearm in the hands of the APS T-Doll, who is very diminutive even by HG standards.
- Super Speed: Her rather substantial rate of fire buff skill is accompanied by a line of dialogue eagerly telling her team to go faster while activating it.
- You Have Researched Breathing: Despite her weapon being depicted with its detachable butt-stock, a player needs to actually obtain the equipment itself from Chapter 9's night-ops in order for it to have an effect.
Heckler & Koch MK23
- Artist: Sheska YueVoiced by: Akao Hikaru
- Clingy Jealous Girl: She believes that there's a special place in the Commander's heart just for her, and gets suspicious when other handgun dolls approach them.
- Dub Name Change: As with most of the other Heckler & Koch weapons in the game, the English version appends "Gr" ahead of her name.
- Cat Girl: Although the "ears", at least, are just bows that she slips her hair through. As to whether the tail is real, however, is unknown.
- Eagle Land: Owing to the real Mark 23 being designed specifically as a US Special Forces sidearm, her clothes in general evoke the imagery of the American flag.
- Idol Singer: Her mannerisms somewhat resemble this, particularly her victory pose.
- Not Drawn to Scale: In a similar vein to her fellow 4-star Stechkin APS. Her MK23 is strangely proportioned like a pocket pistol in her (already small) hands, while the actual piece is infamous for being massively bulky and heavy, its profile being about on par with the Desert Eagle in terms of ergonomics, or lack thereof.
- Mismatched Eyes: Her left eye is blue, while her right is red; unlike G41, this might be natural, since her eye never turns blue outside of battle.
- Rare Guns: The MK23 is a lot harder to come across in reality than one might believe. Despite it being designed from the ground up as sort of a "spec ops" pistol, almost every branch of special forces loathed it due to its excessive weight and wonky ergonomics, leading to its production being halted 2000 units in, and the civilian model was discontinued in 2010.
Heckler & Koch P7
- Artist: saruVoiced by: Tomoyo Kurosawa
- Cat Girl: Cat Nun to be precise.
- Hidden Buxom: Her wedding dress outfit shows that she's packing some b-cups underneath her usual nun's habit.
- The Prankster: Has a habit of making pranks and will also tease the player as well.
SPP-1 Underwater Pistol
- Artist: 麻将Voiced by: Yuka Ootsubo
JSL Spitfire Mk. II
- Artist: SkadeVoiced by: Ryouko Maekawa
- Idol Singer: Very subtly implied, but according to Word of God the strange-looking device on her waist is supposed to be a personal speaker that amplifies her singing.
- Nice Hat: Wears a rather large top hat with three belts fastened on it.
- Pimped-Out Dress: A sleeveless, frilly one.
- Rare Guns: A British CZ75 copy manufactured from 1991 to 1997. Only a small number of these pistols were produced, and as such they're thought to be the rarest CZ75 clones in the world.
- Shout-Out: Her alternate costume is a composite of both Alice and the Mad Hatter, possibly with the ear bits of the March Hare thrown in as well.
- Steam Punk: Top hat? Check. Black leather boots and accessories? Check. An excessive amount of belts on everything? Check.
- Underground Monkey: The JSL Spitfire is literally just an English-made CZ75.
Triple Action Thunder
- Artist: NINVoiced by: Yuki Kuwahara
- A Day in the Limelight: The DJMAX crossover event serves as this for her and M950A.
- Animal Motifs: Swans.
- Character Tics: Rather than expressing emotions with gestures or facial cues, Thunder pulls out her gun and shoots it. She claims this is because gunshots are far more accurate than expressions. It becomes rather problematic when she does this in, say, a crowded banquet.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Her official illustrator mentioned that she was an obsolete doll with no future, and as such had to "endure the dark side of human world". When she came to Grifon, she had already accepted her fate and awaits her own end.
- Death Seeker: According to her illustrator, Thunder is one of a small amount of Generation 1 Automatic Dolls that received very minimal refurbishment to qualify as a fighting unit. Having had her fair share of battlefield horrors, Thunder slowly became more and more jaded over the years and learned to suppress her memories, since they mostly were of losses and bloodshed. As a G&K T-Doll, she is now content with slowly withering away or dying on the field, viewing it as inevitable."Recruited by Grifon as a doll of the old era waiting to be eliminated, accepted minimal improvements and kept waiting for her end in this final place to stay."
- Forgot About Her Powers: Despite being chambered in .50 BMG, Thunder cannot use AP Rounds like fellow HG Contender, and is only compatible with the stock standard HP ammo.
- Hand Cannon: A breech-loading monstrosity that shoots .50 BMG. No, not .50 AE. BMG, the same round used by heavy machine guns and anti-materiel rifles. Taken to a ridiculous level if you're using her Renoir's Crow skin, where it's about as long as her torso!
- Mechanically Unusual Fighter: Rather than buffing her teammates with an aura, or tossing some manner of grenade, Thunder is one of a small handful of "HG Bamboos", with an active skill that lets her fire up to two shots dealing up to 1200% of her attack power on impact.
- Rei Ayanami Expy: White-bluish hair, almost devoid of facial emotion, is artificial, and has an unclear background. Thunder ticks almost all of the common characteristics.
- Sniper Pistol: Tied with Contender for the highest base damage out of all HGs, though she fires slower than her. Her Critical Point Shot skill mirrors the Interdiction Shot skill that several RFs posses.
- Scars Are Forever: Has one around her neck, implying that she was abused in the past. Her Renoir's Crow skin shows that she has even more scars all over her arms and legs.
IWI Jericho 941note
- Artist: 十月十日 奏 (Heiwari Kanade)Voiced by: Azusa Tadokoro
- Coat Cape: She wears her Badass Longcoat over her shoulders.
- Finally Found the Body: This is the main goal of Negev in the Chapter 7 Night Stages: retrieving the dead body of Jericho.
- Gameplay and Story Segregation: The playable Jericho is different from the one in the Chapter 7 Night Stages, in which she was confirmed to be killed prior to the events of the game.
- Handicapped Badass: Zig-zagged. While her character art clearly shows her walking using a crutch, it apparently is just for show, as she still runs normally during combat and it is completely absent in her damaged CG, where she would logically need it the most.
- Sergeant Rock: Chapter 7N shows that Jericho had a tough and strict style of commanding. Despite that, she did care for her subordinates, and personally helped Negev to overcome her own insecurities.
- This is reflected in her Secretary interactions with the Commander, who she views as lax and undisciplined.
- Sigil Spam: Not as bad as Negev (she styles her clothing after Jericho's, after all), but she has plenty Stars of David strewn all around her costume.
- The Paragon: What she strives to be.
Negev: Under your leadership, any doll could become elite.
- Volcanic Veins: A subtle one, but you can see thin blue lines running through her left calf. Her damaged artwork shows that they go all the way to her thigh.
Heckler & Koch P30
- Artist: litsvnVoiced by:
L.A.R. Grizzly Mark V
- Artist: REALMBWVoiced by: Ayaka Itatani
- Badass Driver: Her lines imply that she is a fan of driving. Artists tend to portray her riding a motorcycle.
- Cool Shades: Present, though she never actually lowers them over her eyes.
- Hand Cannon: Her gun is basically a modified 1911 chambered for .50 AE.
- Little Bit Beastly: Her "Transform! Teddy Bear!" outfit gives her grizzly bear ears.
- Whole Costume Reference: Her outfit and the potted plant she carries around in her "Transform! Teddy Bear!" costume is a reference to Matilda from Léon: The Professional.
- Artist: infukunVoiced by: Aoi Koga
- Artistic License Military: Well, not strictly military, considering how the Calico is mostly aimed towards the civilian and law enforcement markets. The M950A is a straight-up submachine gun in reality that's capable of selective-fire, hence the foregrip to control the muzzle climb. A more appropriate choice would be the semi-automatic-exclusive M950 version.
- Difficult, but Awesome: M950A provides some of the best fire rate buffs in the entire game, at the cost of weird tile placement that practically forces her to be at the frontline to be effective. This being a rather fragile and slow HG that fares very poorly at dodging, players will find themselves having to manually reshuffle the echelon as soon as fighting starts or else risk losing her to enemy fire.
- Gotta Catch Them All: She's a part of the unofficial "Kiritsugu Challenge", a collection of Emiya Kiritsugu's favorite weapons in Fate/Zero, due to him (and Maiya Hisau) using the similar M950 in the anime. This achievement is completed through collecting her, Contender, WA2000, and AUG.
- Hates Small Talk: Refers to small talk as "meaningless chitchat" in one of her Secretary lines.
- Meido: Her "Housework Training" outfit turns her into this.
- More Dakka: Being an automatic firearm in reality, M950A boasts the highest fire rate out of any HG in the game, and her tile and skill buffs apply this effect to her teammates.
- Tsundere: While she may be aloof and distant, her lines seem to imply that she's rather happy to be around the Commander.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: While most T-Dolls have quite realistic, if not exaggerated, hair color, M950A's is a bright and glossy green, styled into twintails.
Welrod Mark II
- Artist: エロ牛Voiced by: Asami Imai
- Coat Cape: She places her coat on her back without wearing the sleeves. According to the artist, the coat is based on the British army colonel uniform.
- Dirty Business: Talks about how she will assassinate her targets for the greater good since her gun was used as a silent assassination weapon during World War II.
- Guns Akimbo: She wields a pair of pistols tonfa-style in her character CG, although her combat sprite only uses one.
- Spot of Tea: Offers to make a cup of tea to the Commander.
- Artist: infukunVoiced by: Aoki Shiki
- Coat Cape: Her "ThanX! & Go2Hell!" outfit gives her two coats, the first worn normally and the second worn in this manner over it.
- Creator Provincialism: At least enough so that this gun, the Chinese clone of the CZ75, made it into the Chinese version of the game more than a year before the actual CZ75 did. Interestingly, however, she actually deals a little less damage than CZ75.
- Guns Akimbo: Notable in that unlike most other dual-wielding T-Dolls, her namesake weapons are sporting different finishes (one gold, one black).
- Serious Business: Combat and fighting is very serious business to her, and she will not tolerate slacking off on her watch.
- Underground Monkey: The NZ75 is literally just a Chinese-made CZ75.
- Artist: suisaiVoiced by: Akane Fujita
- April Fools: Following the April Fool's update, she can be seen wearing a ferret onesie that resembles FAL's pet ferret Fel. Apparently this was her punishment for losing a match with FAL.
- Her victory animation also has her holding a large fish, which is in reference to the Chinese internet joke "摸鱼", meaning "Catching/stroking a fish", a metaphor for being distracted from work.
- Genki Girl: Her positive and outgoing personality makes her a popular T-Doll at G&K.
- Gratuitous French: As seen with her interactions with her team, as well as Noel during "Operation: Rabbit Hunt".
- In-Joke: The "Hoxy" meme, which is a Memetic Mutation of the Korean word meaning "perhaps", is often attributed to Five-seveN and is used to mock players who could not acquire her during the relevant events (see below).
- The Lancer: Despite claiming that they can't get along, Five-seveN is considered one of the only individuals who truly understands the thoughts and actions of FAL, and will support her as a Vice-Captain regardless.
- No Hero to His Valet: As fellow senior members of Team FN, she and Ballista are not shy about calling out FAL on her faults.
- Permanently Missable Content: She could only be obtained as a 900-point reward during the Winter 2017 event. As of now, there are no other ways of obtaining her.
- The Rival: To FAL, who she vows to succeed as captain of Team FN.
- Artist: infukunVoiced by: Shiho Kokido
- An Axe to Grind: A tomahawk that, for some reason, has a scope attached to it, likely a reference to the legendary "bipod knife".
- Fashionable Asymmetry: Her cargo shorts have a longer left leg.
- Mechanically Unusual Fighter: Rather than buffing her teammates with an aura, or tossing some manner of grenade, CZ75 behaves like a mini Bamboo with a single-target burst attack instead.
- Even as a Bamboo, her skill is different from her RF counterparts in that every Dummy will contribute to its damage instead of only the primary unit, meaning that although its starting power is low, at five Dummies it can be a force to reckon with.
- Sword and Gun: Wields a tomahawk in one hand and her pistol in another.
- Throwing Your Sword Always Works: Her active skill. Maximized, it can do 10 times her base damage.
Thompson/Center Arms Contender
- Artist: 細重ソウジVoiced by: Asami Seto
- Armor-Piercing Attack She is one of only three non-RF or MG T-dolls who can use armor-piercing ammo, the others being 6P62 (AR) and C-MS (SMG).
- Bottomless Magazines: Zig-zagged. While she still has unlimited ammunition and fires at breakneck pace like other HGs, she still reloads in between shots due to the nature of her handgun, just very quickly.
- Contralto of Danger: Speaks with a relatively deep voice.
- Gotta Catch Them All: The optional kind. As one of several weapons made popular from their use in Fate/Zero by Emiya Kiritsugu, there is an unofficial achievement issued by the fandom called the "Kiritsugu Challenge" in which players would need to collect M950A, AUG, WA2000, and Contender herself to complete his arsenal.
- Gun Twirling: Her sprite's combat animation shows her twirling her weapon after reloading and at the end of combat.
- Hand Cannon: While the Contender is known for its chambering of large rifle rounds, the bullet she holds in her hand is in all likelihood a .45-70, the largest type of ammunition available to the pistol. Its chief uses in reality are for target shooting and big game hunting, and is actually bigger and more powerful than rounds fired by some of the RFs in the game.
- Kicking Ass in All Her Finery: Her outfit is considered to be lavish and fancy several magnitudes above those of other T-Dolls, and her "Phantom of the Opera" skin takes this to new heights. Despite their prevalent use of tights, they don't seem to inconvenience her one bit.
- Lady Looks Like a Dude: Demonstrated by her "Phantom of the Opera" costume, which is a sharp, military uniform-like outfit.
- Meido: Her "Floral Servitude" turns her into this.
- Nice Shoes: She wears a pair of tricked-out high-heels that are connected to fancy laced leggings that run up to her mid-thighs. These are so nice in fact, that it's difficult to tell where her shoes end and the leggings begin.
- She's Got Legs: You could tell just by looking at the picture to your right.
- Sniper Pistol: She's more of a pseudo-RF than your typical HG. She has very high base damage and low fire rate, her skill does massive damage to a single target, and she can even equip AP rounds to boot.
- Statuesque Stunner: Contender is a wildcard among HGs due to her greater height. Official designer's notes give her a height of 155cm, and she stands half a head taller than G36 in one of the login splash screens◊.
- Sweet Tooth: She has a preference for ice cream and would frequently invite the Commander to have some with her during the downtime between missions.
- Tomboy: She looks much more comfortable in her prince getup than her maid uniform.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: Wears a pair of these in her default skin. It's quite elaborately-designed as well.
- Zettai Ryouiki: A rare A-grade specimen. Her fancy laced leggings are additionally connected to her Nice Shoes.
- Artist: REALMBWVoiced by: Chiaki Takahashi
- Punch-Packing Pistol: Embrace of the Dauntless gives her next six shots 100% increase in damage. This skill can stack up to six times, for a total damage increase of 483%.

Magnum Research Desert Eagle Mark XIX
- Artist: AnmiVoiced by:
- Hand Cannon: One of the more famous examples out there.
- Small Girl, Big Gun: Not to the same extent as M99, but she's rather tiny for someone whose namesake is notorious for, among other things, being heavy and bulky.
- Artist: 山药Voiced by:
- Artist: 水熊Voiced by: Kanako Kondo"I'm Noel Vermillion, an orphan of war brought up by a military officer, equipped with the third Nox Nyctores-Arcus Diabolus: Bolverk, which is also the Boundary Interface Prime Field Device No. 12 and the true Successor of the Azure.

- Guest Fighter: From BlazBlue.
- Guns Akimbo: Like her original counterpart, she carries a pair of pistols.

- Artist: suisaiVoiced by: Rie Kugimiya (Guns Girl - Honkai Gakuen)
- Guest Fighter: From Guns Girl Honkai Gakuen.
- Marth Debutedin Smash Bros: The character is technically from from Guns Girl - Honkai Gakuen (Formerly known as Guns Girl - School Dayz), though most, if not all are more familiar with its "sequel" Honkai Impact 3rd.
- No Dub for You: While she is voiced in Guns Girl - Honkai Gakuen (and by extension, Honkai Impact 3rd), there's no voice for her in this game, for now.
- Shock and Awe: Her skill has her cast a lightning spell at enemies, stunning whatever is caught within the AOE. It's essentially a flashbang but without the wind-up delay of throwing it.

- Artist: 水熊Voiced by:
- Guest Fighter: From DJMAX.
- Mythology Gag:
- Her alternate costume is the outfit she wore in the opening of DJMAX Portable 2, albeit with her normal Girlish Pigtails instead of wearing her hair loose.
- The event she is obtainable from, "Glory Day", is named after DJMAX Respect's opening song, and the name of her unique equipment, "Glory Light", is part of the song's chorus.
- The Power of Rock: Her "weapon" is a cross-shaped light beam that she strums like a guitar.
- Artist: 水熊Voiced by:
- Cat Smile: Sports a permanent one on either of her skins.
- Guest Fighter: From DJMAX.
- Mythology Gag:
- Her alternate costume is the same school uniform worn by the unnamed girls that appear in DJMAX Portable 3's opening movie.
- The event she is obtainable from, "Glory Day", is named after DJMAX Respect's opening song, and the name of her unique equipment, "Black Cat", is the name of the song where Fail appears in the music video.
- The Power of Rock: Her "weapon" is a cross-shaped black "light" beam that she strums like a guitar.
- Shadow Archetype: To Clear.
- Artist: 小吃Voiced by:"Hey, call me Jill, Boss... You know what, can I just call you commander?"
- A-Cup Angst: Implied. After Architect leaves the bar in Chapter 7, Jill expresses her frustration at Springfield, who's bartending in her place. When Springfield denies ever taunting Jill, the latter points to her chest instead.Springfield: But I'm not taunting you.
Jill: Then your chest is taunting me...
- Adaptation Distillation: While Jill is also a bartender in this game and can mix certain VA-11 HALL-A drinks for her allies, her in-battle recipes have been substantially dumbed down and simplified compared to the source material. Certain recipes have had entire components removed or changed due to Jill's 3 equipment limit, and each of them produces only one drink, instead of many different ones depending on the ratio of ingredients added (e.g. Sparkle Star and Sugar Rush both consisting of 2 parts Adelhyde and 1 Powdered Delta, Kamotrine not withstanding), the drink being iced or aged, and mixed or blended.
- Adaptation Deviation: Due to Sugar Rush's status as Jill's generic mix, any combination of ingredients that doesn't correspond to a known recipe will produce it, instead of specifically requiring Adelhyde + Powdered Delta (or getting an undrinkable mess from throwing random things together). Additionally, due to her skill's 3-second mixing time, Jill effectively blends every drink she makes, even though that would count as a failure for all of them bar Fringe Weaver and Bleeding Jane.
- Adaptational Personality Change: She's a far nicer person than she was in her original game. That's because she's a simulated version of Jill residing in the neural cloud of a now-passed out HK416, but without her negative emotions (which, coincidentally, is what's driving the Earth Computer in its quest to destroy the world). The Dream Land version of Anna even says she likes "Julianne" more than she does Jill.
- Adaptational Wimp: While Jill is not a combatant even in her home game, she is still a very sharp, witty, and calm person (albeit sexually frustrated). When made into a T-Doll, she seemingly loses this cool front and cowers helplessly while moving about the battlefield. Her chibi sprites also seem visibly afraid, or at the very least concerned, about the fighting going on around her.
- Alpha Strike: Her Fringe Weaver mix is this. It provides a very hefty 35% boost to the echelon's DMG for 5 seconds, after which it leaves a -15% penalty to both DMG and ACC for 8 seconds, which is incredibly good if the team is powerful enough to wipe out the opposition within the buff period, and incredibly bad if they aren't.
- The Bartender: Natch. Her entire kit revolves around her mixing up drinks to buff her allies while she's on the field.
- Bi the Way: Jill is canonically bisexual in her home game, with a slight preference for women over men. That doesn't mean male Commanders couldn't form an Oath with her, however, and she will reciprocate in kind.
- Booze-Based Buff: Comes with the territory. Jill is capable of mixing up seven types of drinks with their own buffs depending on which ingredients she's provided with, or lack thereof, though whether or not a drink is alcoholic depends on if Kamotrine is part of its mixture.
- Crippling Overspecialization: Jill is a superb team buffer, with Contender-level buff tiles boasting stat bonuses that make Grizzly and K5 leery with envy, and a highly versatile and customizable skill that lets her fit into nearly all kinds of echelon setups. She buffs her allies so hard, it veers her squarely into Support Party Member territory since she cannot attack, and aside from her respectable EVA, every other stat of hers is average.
- Early Game Hell: Not so much early game as 80% of her leveling progression. In order to even equip one of her ingredients, Jill has to be at least level 60, and all three slots won't be open until at least 80, so she'll be stuck with mixing Sugar Rush for the entire time. And considering that Jill cannot attack, she effectively will never be MVP, so experience gain will be very minimal even if she's positioned as the echelon's leader. As such, she is indisputably the prime candidate for XP fodders like Combat Reports and the VA-11 HALL-A-exclusive Beer on Discount.
- Emergency Transformation: At the end of the VA-11 HALL-A event, the real-world G&K manage to save the VA-11 HALL-A cast from their world's imminent destruction by extracting their data from 416's neural cloud before she woke up from her alchol-induced stupor. All of them got put into specially-manufactured T-Dolls resembling their former selves (aside from Anna, who got turned into a Fairy instead).
- Fragile Speedster: While her max speed prior to equipment buffs is nothing to write home about, each of her "ingredients" additionally give her 15 more EVA to run with. With all 3 slots filled, Jill can obtain a staggering 141 EVA, enough to leave the next most evasive HG (PSM) in the dust.
- Gargle Blaster: Mixing all 3 parts of Kamotrine together creates Fringe Weaver, which could only be really described as absolutely this in-universe, with some comparing it to "drinking ethylic alcohol with a spoonful of sugar". It is notably tremendously less alcoholic compared to the real deal, as Fringe Weaver consists of 9 whopping parts Kamotrine to 1 Adelhyde in its home game. Indeed, Fringe Weaver is the only drink to leave a debuff after the initial effects wear off.
- Guest Fighter: From VA-11 HALL-A.
- Heroic BSoD: Goes through one when Anna reveals she's not the real Jill Stingray but a virtual copy of her from Anna's memories. Jill at first protest but realizes the truth when she doesn't know who Gabby is, her ex-girlfriend's little sister who the real Jill should know.
- Ineffectual Loner: As if this hasn't been stretched enough, Jill cannot attack. If she's the only T-Doll left in the echelon, that team is pretty much done for and should be retreated immediately.
- Mechanically Unusual Fighter: "Fighter" is a really long stretch in her case. As of current, Jill is unique for being completely incapable of combat, and doesn't even wield a gun of any kind. Her damage attribute, instead, reduces her skill cooldown. Even her status as a HG is extremely debatable, due to the reasons above, and the only possible excuse behind her classification is because of her role as a team buff provider.
- Additionally, she has a whopping 8 special equipments, with different combinations changing how her skill works.
- Mythology Gag: Her "Model Warrior" outfit is based on Model Warrior Julianne, a magical girl Show Within a Show Jill used to be a fan of, and the reason why she detests her real name so much these days.
- Non-Action Guy: Err, gal. As a T-Doll, Jill possesses no attacking animations, and as such cannot engage in direct combat. Or rather, the animation rigs normally used for attacks are replaced with her shaking her cocktail shaker. This can be observed when training her skill, where she will cocktail-shake the training dummy to death. What's baffling about her non-action nature is the fact that Jill still consumes ammo normally, despite her not even having a gun.
- Official Couple: With Dana as of the end of VA-11 HALL-A, though this isn't touched upon during the crossover event and the Commander can form an Oath with either of them.
- Older Than She Looks: Not that you could tell with her home game's retro graphics, but Girls Frontline seems to have given Jill an Age Lift. Really, she does not look like a 27-year-old at all. Gets lampshaded by her interim T-Doll bartender at one point in the event's story.Stella: The boss... you mean that human girl called Jill?
Gr G28: "Jill"? Yes. But "girl"? She's 27, you know.
- Sitting Duck: Jill cannot move while mixing drinks. So if a boss enemy happens to target her with a high-damage or AoE attack while she's at it, you might as well retreat her.
- Squishy Wizard: Being a HG, Jill isn't terribly sturdy herself, boasting only slightly above-par HP (400 per link) at max value. This makes her especially vulnerable to attacks while in the middle of mixing drinks (see Sitting Duck above).
- Stance System: Kind of. Jill's equipment loadout dictates what kind of buffs she will be giving out, and primarily to whom. Depending on which "ingredients" are equipped on her, Jill could mix up up to six specific types of drinks in her minibar, each with its own special effect and target allied class, in addition to Sugar Rush, which is the default "recipe". The verdict still hangs on "kind of", since Jill's loadout cannot be edited mid-battle.
- Sugar Rush: (default) 18% Damage boost. Affects all types.
- Big Beer: 20% Armor, 30% Damage, and 30% Accuracy boost. Affects SGs.
- Additionally buffs Dana by 1.5x of her Armor value.
- Brandtini: 25% Damage and 25% Accuracy boost. Affects MGs.
- Additionally extends Alma's drone timer by 1s.
- Piano Woman: 60% Evasion boost for front row, 20% Damage boost for others. Affects all types.
- Additionally halves the negative effects of Dorothy's skill.
- Moonblast: 22% Rate-of-Fire boost. Affects all types.
- Additionally doubles the HP scaling of Sei's shield.
- Bleeding Jane: 25% Crit chance boost, with excess crit % being converted into Crit Damage. Affects ARs and RFs.
- Additionally reduces the required hit count to trigger Stella's damage boost (down to 10).
- Fringe Weaver: 35% Damage boost. Causes "Drunk" status after 5s, which -15% Damage and -15% Accuracy. Affects all types.
- Story and Gameplay Segregation: Despite Jill's skill providing a Booze-Based Buff onto her teammates, it's perfectly compatible with those who are canonically intolerant to alcohol, like Type 64 and HK416 for example. The latter takes the cake especially because her weak tolerance to alcohol was the entire reason why all the hullabaloo that went down during the event even happened in the first place.
- Support Party Member: As detailed under Mechanically Unusual Fighter, Jill is simply incapable of harming anything on her own, and her chibi sprites don't even possess attack animations. Instead, she acts as a mobile status buffer to the remaining 4 T-Dolls on the team, especially the other VA-11 HALL-A units.
- Tomato in the Mirror: Griffin City's version of Jill is actually a virtual copy of the real Jill Stingray based on Anna's memories of her.
- Artist: NINVoiced by:
- Adaptation Deviation: Sei in her home game doesn't have a "preferred" drink. Instead, her orders vary depending on the day she stops by the bar. She does have a preference towards cold and sweet drinks and while Moonblast could be served to her, it's not strictly her favourite, as is anything in Jill's recipe book.
- Deflector Shields: Her skill gives the handguns, submachine guns and shotguns in her echelon a temporary shield whose HP scales depending on the target T-Doll's health. If Jill is buffing her with a Moonblast drink, the shield's health is doubled.
- Emergency Transformation: At the end of the VA-11 HALL-A event, the real-world G&K manage to save the VA-11 HALL-A cast from their world's imminent destruction by extracting their data from 416's neural cloud before she woke up from her alcohol-induced stupor. All of them got put into specially-manufactured T-Dolls resembling their former selves (aside from Anna, who got turned into a Fairy instead).
- Gameplay and Story Integration: Sei receives a special synergy bonus if she is in the same echelon as her closest friend, Stella.
- Guest Fighter: From VA-11 HALL-A.
- Mythology Gag: During the Griffin City storyline, Jericho comments Sei would make a perfect member of the White Knight's Valkyrie Corps since they serve as paramedics. In her home game, Sei is indeed a member.
- Still Wearing the Old Colors: M16A1 comments Sei is still wearing her old White Knight power armor despite the White Knights having been disbanded after their corruption was exposed to the public.
- Tomato in the Mirror: Griffin City's version of Sei is actually a virtual copy of the real Sei Asagiri based on Anna's memories of her.
- You Have Researched Breathing: Like other VA-11 HALL-A units apart from Jill and Dorothy, Sei has to be equipping her unique armor for it to take effect, despite her conspicuously wearing it from the start.
