    Aragami in General 
A species of monsters that first appeared around 20 years ago and quickly laid waste to most life on Earth. Nobody knows their origin, though various hypotheses abound. They first appeared as single-celled organisms that rapidly consumed and imitated much of Earth's single-cellular life, until they began aggregating and working up to more complex life forms. The Reveal of Code Vein states that they are Always a Bigger Fish to the various Lost Revenants.
  • Animal Motifs: Most lines resemble an animal from the place they devoured, especially the bigger ones. Justified in that Aragami take the attributes of what they consume. As such, Aragami that consume animals will look like said animals.
    • The Kongou line each look like monkeys.
    • The Vajra line look like Tigers.
    • The Chi-You line each look like a Winged Humanoid, a bird each.
    • The Kyuubi resemble foxes, albeit with 3 tails.
  • Beast with a Human Face: Several Aragami have this appearance, most notable among them the Prithvi Mata and Dyaus Pita, powerful Vajra with a female and bearded male face respectively.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: The Aragami are technically collections of semi-independent "Oracle" cells. Each one has a core cluster of Oracle cells that controls the others through chemical signals, keeping the aggregate together and allowing the cells to differentiate into other roles. Genetically every Oracle cell ever sampled is identical to any other, but they can absorb and reuse any material they consume, allowing the Aragami to vary wildly in phenotype.
  • Casting a Shadow: If a Divine attribute Aragami does not have Light 'em Up as part of their attack, they usually have this.
  • Cowardly Boss: Almost all Aragami will run away to seek out a place to feed when their health starts flagging.
  • Degraded Boss: Inevitably, as the game goes on, Aragami that were initially treated as a high-level threat will pop up more often and with less fanfare, your improved equipment making them easier to deal with.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Can even devour chunks of buildings, and in extreme cases may even turn on each other. Their Bias Factor is the ONLY thing that stops them from eating something; if you're not covered by the Bias Factor, you're lunch.
  • Hero Killer: Type 1 Deusphages in the first game are Aragami with a penchant for God Eaters. As a result, they are avoided by most God Eaters.
    • The Susano'o, a Borg Camlann derivative Type 1 Deusphage, is said to have grown stronger by devouring God Arcs (and presumably their wielders, too). Rumor also has it that they are manifestations of God Eaters-turned-Aragami.
    • The psions in 2 are also worth noting and have similar reputations; their ability to shut down nearby God Arcs means the vast majority of God Eaters can do nothing but run if faced by one. Of note is the Marduk who is the Aragami that give a fatal injury to Romeo, causing him to die shortly afterwards.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Only Oracle Cells can kill other Oracle Cells, so by that adage Aragami can only be killed by other Aragami. God Arcs are essentially artificial Aragami that can be controlled by a human through use of Bias Factor.
    • Goes full circle in Rage Burst with the Arc Aberrants: Aragami that have God Arcs fused into their own body that can not only use them as weapons but a few of them even have access to Blood abilities.
    • God Eater 3 also has a "full circle" moment in Ashborn Aragami: Aragami that fight more like God Eaters than anything, having a Devour attack which grants them Burst status, just like a New-type God Eater, and access to a whole raft of Burst Arts while in this state. Needless to say, they are vastly more dangerous in this state and it can be a good idea to just evade or bail for another part of the map if this happens.
    • Also applies to the Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors; some Aragami, in particular many of the Divine attribute, use the same element to attack that they are weak to. As a result, their Aragami bullets can often be used to great effect against them.
  • Horde of Alien Locusts: Though their exact origins are unknown.
  • It Can Think:
    • A minor example, but the Chi-You line of Aragami have a tendency to use the "bring it" pose (popularized by The Matrix) when they spot you.
    • And in GE1, the discovery of Shio turns what people thought they knew about Aragami on its ear. Phym has a similar effect in 3.
  • Light Is Not Good: Most Aragami that use the Divine element have this in their design. Of note is the World Opener in 2 which looks like a tall seraphic being with wings made out of swords.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Every Aragami incorporates various animal (and some human) features - and in some cases the features of vehicles.
    • The Venus takes this Up to Eleven by being a mix of multiple Aragami. Due to this it has access to attacks of each of the four elements.
    • Another Aragami that takes the qualities of several others is the Arius Nova, a Nova fragment that devoured the cores of several Aragami and evolved. It borrows traits of appearance from the Arda Nova and the Vajra line while having modified attacks of the Prithvi Mata and Dyaus Pita, as well as the Sariel and Caligula.
  • Olympus Mons:
    • The Deusphages, Aragami named after real-world deities and considered god-level monsters. Susano'o (Borg Camlann), Tsukuyomi (Arda Nova), Tezcatlipoca (Quadriga), Aether (Sariel), Sekhmet (Chi-You), and Amaterasu (Ouroboros). Though not explicitly stated, the Hannibal line may also count, being a species introduced only in the Burst storyline.
    • 2 introduces the psions: Aragami that have abilities that allow them to coordinate with other Aragami. Such as Marduk's (Garm) ability to alert all nearby Aragami to it's position, the Kabbala-Kabbala's (Gboro-Gboro) ability to send all Aragami into a rage, and the Spartacus's (Hannibal) ability to feed off of other Aragami and go into a Burst mode.
    • Rage Burst also introduces the Arc Aberrants: Aragami fused with God Arcs that allow them to have Blood Powers and use Blood Arts.
    • 3 introduces the Ashborn: Aragami who arise and thrive in the new "Ash Storms" that are blasting much of the landscape. These have a tendency to resemble and be named after gods like the Deusphages - Anubis and Ra being two examples. Ashborn are capable of using Devour attacks like God Eaters and gaining Burst status, with all that entails.
  • Our Monsters Are Weird: Some Aragami are just downright strange. The Demiurge in 2 is a notable example as it is even described as having a bizarre appearance in-universe.
  • Palette Swap: "Fallen" subspecies with differing elemental affinities, weaknesses and attacks are common.
  • Pillar of Light: Many Divine-elemental Aragami tend to have at least one attack like this.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Nearly all Aragami have their name drawn from mythology or religion. The pool is extremely wide and includes Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Chinese, Japanese, Aztec, Hindu, Celtic, and many more myths.
  • Turns Red: All non-small Aragami tend to become become "activated"/"enraged" after several hits or after a body part has been unbound.

    Small Aragami 

Ogretail

Cocoon Maiden

  • Weak Turret Gun: Completely immobile, Cocoon Maidens are almost completely helpless if you can close in on them and get to their sides or behind them. At that point their only defenses are a quick but weak spike attack that carries various status effects depending on the elemental variety you're fighting.
  • Fire, Ice, Lightning: The fallen Cocoon Maidens.

Zygote

Dreadpike

  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: So far the only mostly insectoid Aragami which resembles a big bipedal green stag beetle.
  • Dig Attack: Dreadpikes sometimes bury themselves and attack by emerging.

Night Hollow

  • Weak Turret Gun: Much like the Cocoon Maiden, Night Hollows are completely immobile. Unlike the Cocoon Maiden their shots are slow, far more telegraphed, and lack any sort of short range deterrents. They also have poor defense and does not have any weapon to protect themselves in melee.

Abaddon

  • Cuteness Proximity: The Abaddon in 2 is known as the "Aragami of Happiness" and causes a few characters to comment on its bizarrely adorable appearance.
  • Deathbringer the Adorable: Despite having the name of the "Lord of the Abyss" from Judeo-Christian mythos, this little Aragami is very docile, never attacked a human and just runs away when attacked by a God Eater.
  • Metal Slime: Abaddon in 2 and their Palette Swap Amor in Resurrection are small, oddly cute fish-like Aragami that appear rarely and flee the moment they're attacked. Hunting down and devouring them provides rare tickets that can be traded for materials.

Silky

  • Elite Mook: Silkies in Rage Burst are classified as small Aragami but can take a surprising amount of punishment, almost as much as some medium types like Chi-Yous. They're still not a huge danger, but are certainly more threatening than your standard Ogretail or Zygote.

Axe Raider

  • Extra-ore-dinary: Can throw rocks as an attack.
  • Full-Boar Action: Phym excitedly identifies them as "piggies". They use their axe-like horns and tusks to gore people outright, or tear up the ground and throw boulders at them. Or in the case of the Fallen Axe Raider, throw lava.

Blast Spider

  • Action Bomb: When defeated, Blast Spiders explode, dealing damage to nearby God Eaters. You'd better be careful when trying to devour them for materials.
  • An Ice Person: Fallen Blast Spiders are Frost-elemental, using extremely cold gas to attack.
  • Playing with Fire: The regular Blast Spiders are Blaze-elemental, attacking with fireballs.

  • Mook: The majority of small Aragami are this, serving only be be an obstacle or Burst fodder during fights against Medium and Large Aragami
  • Zerg Rush: Some later missions feature swarms of Small Aragami, though the Protagonist is only required to defeat a certain number (usually thirty). Many missions in God Eater 3 will have swarms of Small Aragami spawn as the Medium and Large targets of the mission begin to weaken.

    Medium Aragami 

Gboro-Gboro

Kongou

  • An Ice Person: The fallen variants.
  • Blow You Away: The standard and Fallen Kongous have this as part of their attacks.
  • Everything's Better with Monkeys: The Kongou line. Name's a bit of a hint.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: The Fierce Kongou, despite having a different body structure and an altered moveset, is at no point called a Deusphage and is instead treated as a simple, if not notably powerful, variant.
  • Shock and Awe: Fierce Kongous.
  • Super Senses: Kongou have very sharp hearing, allowing them to notice players fighting from far away. This can be used to your advantage by intentionally luring them you so you can take them out first and stop them from interrupting your fight with other Aragami.

Chi-You

  • Badass Armfold: The Chi-You line of Aragami are always in this pose, preferring to let their arm-like wings do the fighting. The pose doesn't break even when they're stunned. Only when they die do their arms finally part.
  • Bring It: Chi-Yous make this expression when first engaged. For added intimidation points, they use their "hands" on their wings, whilst their normal hands are in a Badass Armfold.
  • Kamehamehadoken: The Chi-You's energy-based projectile attacks, especially the charged-up final blast of the combo.
  • Shock and Awe: The fallen variant which fists can stun.
  • Winged Humanoid

Ukonvasara

Ravana

  • Ascended Extra: Originally a DLC Aragami for God Eater, Ravana became a standard enemy for all versions of God Eater 2 and God Eater Resurrection
  • BFG: Ravanas have massive cannons on their backs.
  • Cyborg: The Ravana is speculated to be a mutated Vajra fused with powerful high tech weaponry.
  • Playing with Fire
  • Poisonous Person: It can release a cloud of poison like the Sariel species.

Yaksha

  • Arm Cannon: Its right arm is a cannon which fires Oracle Cell bullets.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: The Yaksha Raja possesses an additional pair of arms with massive bladed claws to better defend itself when ranged attacks are insufficient.

God Arc Soldier

  • The Corruption: The Wild God Arc Soldiers are the units those are exposed to the Red Rain for too long and becoming Aragami themselves.
  • Turned Against Their Masters: Were originally meant to be weapons used against Aragami, but the Red Rain turned them into wild Aragami themselves.

Arlecchino

Barbarius

  • An Ice Person: The standard Barbarius can create ice to attack.
  • Dig Attack: One of its attacks consists of jumping into the air and digging through the ground with its drill upon landing, burying itself. It then emerges from another location.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Known as "Barbarus" in the Japanese version.
  • This Is a Drill: Has a drill attached in its left hand, which also becomes its primary method of attacking.

Nemain

  • Bird People: While similar in concept to the Chi-You line, Nemain is far more bird than humanoid. They are specifically described as a bizarre cross between a knight and a crow.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Its hands possess both bladed fingers and a long immobile claw that sees use as a rapier or lance depending on the attack.
  • Feather Flechettes: It is capable of causing feather-like blades to rain down on the area ahead of it. The regular Nemain's are flaming feathers, while the Fallen Nemain uses frozen ones instead.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: One of Nemain line's attacks has it letting out a shrill that damages those unfortunate enough for being close to it.

Havakiri

  • Charged Attack: Has two. There's a locked on beam aimed at a single player with a slight delay in tracking, after a few seconds firing off a Wave Motion Gun. The other pulls back and powers up its swords, marking a massive area in red light, decimating anyone who failed to clear the area once it swings.
  • Laser Blade: The Fallen Havakiri gain the ability to surround themselves in a rotating blade of Oracle energy blades, making it necessary to shoot them away to be able to safely approach the fight directly.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Prior to God Eater 3's 1.20 patch they were very fast and possessed hard-hitting area attacks.
  • Mighty Glacier: After God Eater 3's 1.20 patch they were slowed down to about average speed with a more noticeable delay between attacks. The trade off being more frequent use of their high powered charge attacks as opposed to their rapid hitting combos.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: The Havakiri line is pretty much a dual-wielding cyborg samurai Aragami.

False Idol

  • Beehive Barrier: In defensive mode, the False Idol projects a barrier made of hexagons, dramatically increasing its defense against gun attacks until it switches back to offensive mode, which causes the barrier to burst and damage nearby players.
  • Death from Above: This is its standard procedure for attacking, be it flying along leaving exploding orbs or simply drifting up and raining divine lightning down on the area nearby. The Fallen variant can mix that last attack up, instead firing a beam into the ground that begins bursting out from below nearby God Eaters.
  • Stance System: The False Idol switches between two forms: an offensive mode where it attacks with several varieties of Beam Spam, and a defensive mode where it becomes highly resistant to ranged attacks.

    Large Aragami 

Vajra

Prithvi Mata

  • An Ice Person: Aside from its face, it is just a Vajra but using ice instead of electricity.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Nobody's quite sure if these Aragami should be classed as a Fallen Vajra or a unique gendered subspecies, due to landing somewhere between classifications on Fallen and Deusphage.

Quadriga

  • Chest Blaster: The Quadriga line opens up their chest (both of their human-like portion and their quadrupedal one) to shoot missiles at you - exposing themselves to be hit there.
  • Living Weapon: The Quadriga line is like a cross between an enraged elephant, a bull, and a living, walking tank/missile silo.
  • Macross Missile Massacre: The Quadriga fights with this tactic, and you can (more or less) send these same Missiles right back at it via Devouring it and using its Aragami bullet.
  • Walking Tank: The Quadriga takes the form of a tank, complete with treads going up its four legs (that it never uses).

Sariel

  • Beam Spam: The Sariel Aragami series float around the battlefield and do this, alongside poisoning the crap out of anyone.
  • Pretty Butterflies: The Sariel line are a cross between a butterfly and a beautiful woman.

Borg Camlann

Ouroboros

  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: It is described as being as big as a mountain.
  • Units Not to Scale: While terribly big in game, it is much smaller compared on what it is described. The anime shows it in its actual size and being "big as a mountain" is not an overstatement.
  • Wave Motion Gun: Can fire a massive laser beam.

Arda Nova

  • Chest Blaster: The male component of Arda Nova has this, and the assault-type guns you can make from the parts is modeled after it.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Resembles a human, but is also a dangerous Aragami (unlike Shio, whose behavior is nearly human). Justified in that it is an artificially made Aragami made by human hands.

Hannibal

  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Hannibal draws red blades from its hands, while Caligula has blades on its arms by default.
  • Berserk Button: Breaking the scale on a Hannibal's back will send it into permanent enraged mode. This is a reference to the legend that Chinese dragons have a single scale that grows in the opposite direction to all the others, and will go ballistic and kill the offender if it's touched.
  • It Can Think: The database in the first game notes that the Hannibal's movements and ability to wield its flames like swords are disturbingly familiar to techniques humans use. This may be due to its origins as the mutated form of Lindow.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Fast, flashy and hitting with the force and fury of the fires they wield, there are reasons they're called Nargacuga 2.0. The Caligula (especially the undamaged Rufus Caligula, an evolved strain of that), Spartacus and Blitz Hannibal strains take this right Up to Eleven, with some focusing more on the bruiser side, whereas the Blitz Hannibal instead opts to be a Hannibal that's about two, maybe three times faster than a normal one and no less defense than any other Aragami of a similar level.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: The closest thing to a dragon Aragami.
  • Super Speed: The Blitz Hannibal is basically a regular Hannibal except that its movements are increased to a ridiculous level.

Garm

  • Hellhound: Garm is a vicious canine Aragami that can control flames.

Kyuubi

  • Applied Phlebotinum: It is unique due to being composed of Retro Oracle Cells, which have special properties that make them extra useful and valuable.
  • Beam Spam: The Kyuubi has this as an attack, firing a large barrage of homing beams that can hit the entire party at once, though their beams are incapable of hitting you if you go right next to it, which is one of the few times a Kyuubi ever leaves itself open.
  • Casting a Shadow: Can send its shadow along the ground to damage God Eaters.
  • Kitsune: As its name indicates, the Kyuubi takes the appearance of one, except with three tails instead of nine.
  • Lightning Bruiser: They hit hard, are fast, and can take quite a bit of punishment. And that is not even getting into its Psion variation which can reduce the maximum HP of all nearby God Eaters or its Arc Aberrant version which can detect who has the current lowest HP and specifically target them.

Demiurge

  • Mighty Glacier: Its attacks are very slow and telegraphed (except for one quick jab), but hit hard and it can only be dealt any real damage on its soft parts when it exposes them, or on its head.

Chrome Gawain

Orochi

  • Orochi: The Orochi is a powerful Chrome Gawain variant that has two extra heads in place of the Gawain's giant hands. Its battle theme uses traditional Japanese instruments in a nod to its namesake's origin.

God Arc Soldier Zero

  • Cyborg: It resembles a Demiurge but it has more mechanical parts.
  • Psycho Prototype: An artificial Aragami the normal God Arc Soldiers are based on. It's also highly aggressive and impossible to control.

Last Vestige

  • Empty Shell: It has the structure of the World Closer, but lacks Dr. Rachel's will.

Chernobog

Kubera

    Deusphages 
Aragami that have specifically adapted to hunt God Eaters. They are distinct from Fallen variants in that they exhibit notable physical alterations and new abilities beyond simple elemental changes. Most fall into the Medium and Large categories.

Vajratail

Sekhmet

  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Its black and purple variant Hera was part of a collaboration and as such simply disappeared after God Eater Burst.
  • Panthera Awesome: Just like the Egyptian goddess it is named after, it has the face of a lion despite being a Chi-You subspecies.

Aether

  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Zeus, simply a darker grey variant, was part of a collaboration and as such simply disappeared after God Eater Burst.
  • The One Guy: Among the feminine Sariel and its variants, the Aether is the only male among them.

Tezcatlipoca

  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Poseidon, a black and gold variant, was part of a collaboration and as such simply disappeared after God Eater Burst.

Susano'o

  • Clipped-Wing Angel: Susano'o gains a far wider array of attacks compared to a normal Borg Camlann, but it comes at the expense of being far more vulnerable to damage and supplying Aragami Bullets that it is weak to.

Amaterasu

  • Gag Boobs: Amaterasu has a pair of breasts that are each probably larger then the main characters and just... flop around as the main body moves.

Tsukuyomi

Dyaus Pita/Heavenly Father

  • The Cameo: Appear in Code Vein as the answer to whats on the other side of the Gaol of the Mist, revealing the aragami to be the Greater Scope Villains of said game.
  • Canon Immigrant: The new form of Dyaus Pita used in Resurrection and God Eater 3 originated in the anime.
  • Decomposite Character: Due to the introduction of the anime Dyaus Pita to the games, the original form has since been renamed Heavenly Father and is strictly a Bonus Boss that no longer serves any purpose to the story.
  • Lightning Bruiser: It has incredible power, equally incredible defense, and when enraged it could give The Flash a tough time in a race.
  • Turns Red: The new version of the Dyaus Pita seen in Resurrection starts out acting much like the original, and the other Vajra before it, but once it's taken some damage it unfurls its "cape" to reveal a pair of skeletal, blood-red wings and displays an unprecedented level of speed and aggressiveness.

Venus

Caligula

  • An Ice Person: Both Caligula and its crimson variant Rufus Caligula use powerful freezing attacks in comparison to the lesser Hannibals' use of fire.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: The Caligula has two massive wing-like blades on its forearms that can extend for wide reaching slash attacks.

Nebuchadnezzar

    Psions 
Introduced in God Eater 2 Aragami with enhanced Resonance abilities thanks to exposure to the Red Rain. Like Deusphages these Aragami often sport notable physical alterations and new abilities, including cooperative abilities with other Aragami. Most of these Aragami are typically Medium or Large sized.

Kabbala Kabbala

  • Super Mode: When left unaware of the party, the Kabbala Kabbala's bias field will give Level 3 Burst to the party but also renders other Aragami in enraged state.

Yan Zhi & Zhou Wang

  • The Dividual: Zhou Wangs do not exist on their own, being incomplete Aragami created by Yan Zhi to swarm its victims.
  • Enemy Summoner: Yan Zhi summons an endless tide of Zhou Wang, a special Ogretail variant, to assist it in battle. To make things worse, it can then single out one of your teammates for all of the Aragami on the field to focus their attacks on. The bright side is its limited to keeping five active at any given time.
  • Enthralling Siren: Yan Zhi is a Chi-You psion with delicate features and beautifully colored plumage. Its special ability allows it to summon and control other Aragami, and its material prefix is, indeed, "Siren".

Nyx Alpha

  • The Medic: Nyx Alpha has the unique power to heal its fellow Aragami.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Nyx Alpha is completely immune to melee attacks; they simply pass through it, as does Devour form. It is, however, highly vulnerable to bullets.
  • Shoot the Medic First: Nyx Alphas necessitate this. Due to constantly healing downed enemies and being immune to melee, you HAVE to quite literally shoot them first if you want to take out anything else in a decent timeframe. Luckily, they're also very vulnerable and go down in about the same time as a Silky.

Spartacus

  • All Your Powers Combined: Unlike most Psions, who amplify standard Aragami, Spartacus instead opts to absorb the power of any nearby Aragami. This allows it to enter a Burst-like state, but leaves its allies weaker and vulnerable to attack.

Magatsu Kyuubi

  • Boss Arena Urgency: Unlike other Kyuubi variants, Magatsu Kyuubi is capable of leaving lingering orbs that dramatically lower your maximum health levels for the rest of the fight if caught in them. Precise timing on flash grenades is necessary to stall the attack, but the limit of 8 total to a mission still leaves you needing to quickly end the fight before nowhere is safe.

Marduk

  • Evil Counterpart:
    • It appears to be a "corruption" of Fenrir's wolf symbol.
    • Towards Nana as its Resonance ability works similarly to her Blood Power.
  • Flunky Boss: Marduks are rarely fought alone as its Resonance ability is to draw all other Aragami present to its location.
  • Racial Remnant: Ein is rather impressed to see Marduks still around in Europe as, by the time of God Eater 3, all other species of Psion are assumed to be utterly wiped out thanks to the lack of Red Rain to create new ones.

    Arc Aberrants (spoilers) 
Introduced in God Eater 2: Rage Burst. Aragami created when the Spiral Tree consumed Friar, some occurring by random chance and others by design. They sport at least one God Arc component on their body applying new attributes to their attacks, and in some cases the God Arc acts independently to defend the Aragami when incapacitated. These Aragami are Medium or Large sized.

Ontovasara

Yaksha Tivra

Rakshasa Kongou

Magna Gawain

Caligula Xeno

Mukuro Kyuubi

Einherjar


  • Grim Reaper: Tend to give off this motif in their designs.
  • Mirror Boss: Arc Aberrants have attacks similar to the Blood Art of whichever party member uses its God Arc type. The ones that are counterparts to Blood members can also use their Blood Powers.

    Ashborn 
Introduced in God Eater 3. More commonly called Ash Aragami, these Viral Aragami found in the Ashlands that have developed the ability to Devour and Burst like God Eaters.

Humanoid Aragami

  • Doom Magnet: Hunted by other Ashborn, almost no living example has ever been found as their more hostile relatives will stop at nothing to Devour them. Anyone unfortunate enough to have one around will quickly find themselves overrun.

Ra

Nuadha

Balmung

  • Cyborg: Similar to Ravana, Balmung is a massive Vajra-esque Aragami fused with machine weapons. Rather than a cannon like the Ravana, it has a pair of rocket boosters where one would expect the cape like growths to be.
  • Shock and Awe: Much like the Vadjra and Dyaus Pita, the Balmung uses electricity in its attacks, either spewing thunder from its mouth, shooting balls of electricity or trying to slice you with scythes made from electricity from its front paws.

Anubis

  • Death from Above: One of Anubis' moves is to leap upward before launching itself down at its victim. Furthermore, in Burst mode, the Anubis will also call raining beams that covers wide area.
  • Walking Wasteland: The Ash Storm Anubis from 1.30 update is basically a walking Ash Storm phenomenon, capable of raising the Ash level by several spikes just by its presence alone. It also carries activated Ashblight that can even kill seasoned AGEs if the contamination level becomes too much, which translates in gameplay as steadily draining the God Eaters' health until its Ash Storm barrier is dispelled.

Dromi

  • Hero Killer: The Dromi is said to aggressively hunt down specifically AGEs, with none of the previous AGEs who encountered them survived long enough to gather any sufficient data of it.
  • Multiple Head Case: Has three heads, which are bound shut normally but open when it enters Burst mode.

Odin

  • Final Boss: For the base storyline of God Eater 3
  • Powered by a Forsaken Child: The Bias Factors used in AGEs means they can serve as fuel for the Odin units. The one turned into an Aragami for the Final Boss fight was powered by Phym, making it more literal in that case.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: After the incident with the corrupted Odin unit, nevermind the immoral fuel source, all remaining Odin units were promptly sealed away.
  • Turned Against Their Masters: Originally a colossal God Arc Soldier type weapon repurposed for handling Ashblight, Devouring an Ash Tempest turns one Odin unit into a true Aragami much like the Red Rains did for its smaller models.


  • Bonus Boss: The Adaptive Aragami. These are essentially Fallen versions of the standard Ashborn and are never required to progress as they are designed as raid style bosses, requiring a group of eight players to kill them in an extremely short 5 minute mission.
  • Stance System: When an Ash Aragami enters Burst mode, it changes appearance and has different attack patterns (in addition to being more deadly). On the other hand, it also exposes its core at the same time, making it more vulnerable.

    Ashwrought Aragami 
Aragami introduced in and after God Eater 3's 2.00 patch. Ashwrought Aragami are an evolution of standard Aragami caused by "devouring parasitism" ash corruption, distinguished by their crystalized oracle cells rupturing out from their bodies.

Barbarius Ira

  • Shock and Awe: Barbarius Ira fights with a variety of electrical attacks, including the ability to fire slightly homing electrical projectiles from its drill.

Agni Vajra

  • Playing with Fire: As its name implies, this variant of Vajra has a series of fire-based attacks.
  • Schmuck Bait: If Agni Vajra stops moving around, failure to watch for a barrier that looks like a massive flaming fanged mouth and then hitting said barrier will result in a devastatingly powerful counterattack that will very likely kill anyone nearby that either is not at full health or not using a Last Chance Hit Point skill.

Nuadha Eire

  • An Ice Person: Nuadha Eire possesses powerful ice type variants of the standard Nuadha's attacks, as well as Dromi's homing ice clusters. Unique to it is its ability to create ice sculptures that deal damage to anyone nearby.
  • Hyperactive Metabolism: To compensate for a sucessful devour ending enrage, and by extension the Ashwrought Healing Factor, Nuadha Eire's devours restore a massive amount of health all at once. Should any of its ice sculptures be nearby, it will prioritize devouring them instead of any God Eater.

Melammu Marduk

  • Action Bomb: Melammu Marduk's Ashwrought Ogretails have one simple trick, charge at a God Eater and explode on impact.
  • Composite Character: In addition to having poison variants to the standard Marduk's attacks, this Aragami has the ability to summon a unique Ogretail variant like the Yan Zhi.

Tyrant Hannibal

  • No-Sell: The scales on its back grant the Tyrant Hannibal complete immunity to any status effects, which includes the vital Bind ailment, allowing it to take full advantage of the Ashwrought Healing Factor until it is destroyed.


  • The Corruption: The "devouring parasitism" they go through is stated to alter them on a fundamental level by completely readjusting their bias. Essentially they become Ashblight in Aragami form, as opposed to the Ashborn Aragami that are resistant to Ashblight, and are given power equal to the latter that's in Burst.
  • Healing Factor: The ash corruption enables the Ashwrought Aragami to heal both theirselves and nearby God Eaters while enraged. The exact level of healing varies by Aragami, though typically around 1000 HP roughly every 2-3 seconds while God Eaters only recover a few HP at the same rate. This effect can be temporarily suppressed with the Bind ailment.

    Singularities 
Story critical Aragami related to the concept of the Devouring Apocalypse.

Shio

Nova

Arius Nova

World Opener

World Closer

  • Angelic Abomination: Looks similar to an angel, with a shining halo above it’s head and smoky wing-like structures.
  • Final Boss: Of Rage Burst, and the second game as a whole.
  • Humanoid Abomination: It is Dr. Rachel turned into Aragami.
  • One-Winged Angel: Rachel was already a very nasty person, and her transformation into an Aragami has made her as monstrous on the outside as she's on the inside.
