    Player Character 

Voiced by: Ryohei Arai, Toshiaki Kuwahara, Hisayoshi Suganuma, Masami Suzuki, Kengo Takanashi, Mikako Takahashi, Mutsumi Tamura, Haruka Terui, Taishi Murata, Kaede Yuasa

The main hero of the story. A resident of the real world, they used to be a normal human with no remarkable abilities. Until one day, when they became a casualty in an invasion of New York City by a hoard of Venoms led by Frieza. Fortunately, Trunks and Navigator found them and used an umbras cube to revive them and grant them with power only found in the JUMP Worlds. Now with the power to fight back, they are recruited to Umbras Base to help them fight back against the villains terrorizing their homeworld.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Skin tone can range from realistic to fantastic, including deep Namekian green, bright red, and cool blue.
  • Came Back Strong: The umbrus cube used to revive them also gave them the power of the JUMP Worlds, granting them the ability to use any technique from any of those worlds.
  • Character Customization: Everything from their characters appearance to fighting style can be changed to the players' liking.
  • 11th-Hour Superpower: Due to a combination of Kane's Umbran cube, and Goku's Genki Dama, they gain an edge when the time comes to defeat the Greater-Scope Villain.
  • Heroic Mime: Outside of battle cries, the player character is silent.
  • Featureless Protagonist: They can be of any appearance, including skin tone and gender.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: The protagonist is able to copy many abilities from most fighters, keywords being many and most, while the umbran cube has no problem copying regular abilities it seems to have limitations on unique skills from other fighters, for example they cannot use Naruto's Ultimate, or Sasuke's Sharingan related techiques, nor are they able to learn any of Jotaro's moves because they don't have the Kyubi, the Sharingan, or a Stand, so they have to rely on the variety of their skills to counter these more advanced ones.
  • Laser Blade: When using skills from sword-wielding characters like Trunks or Ichigo, avatars procure energy swords.
  • Moveset Clone: The three basic fighting styles avatars can use are based on Goku, Naruto, and Luffy's fighting styles (sans shadow clones or stretching).
  • Power Copying: New abilities are unlocked after recruiting/beating other Jump characters.
  • Rookie Red Ranger: They're the new recruit of the Jump Force. By the time of the fight aginst Prometheus, he's also their leader.
  • Virtual Paper Doll: There are a wide variety of appearance options for the player's avatar, from height and build to skin, hair, and eye color, to the clothes on their back.
  • You Are in Command Now: Due to Glover/Prometheus's defeat, they're the ones in charge of the Umbran base.

I can’t wait to see what you can accomplish.

Bleach Characters

    Ichigo Kurosaki 

Voiced by: Masakazu Morita

Ichigo was an Ordinary High-School Student who could see the spirits of the departed, until a fateful encounter with a Soul Reaper leads to him joining their ranks. With his trusty Zanpakuto named "Zangetsu", Ichigo takes it upon himself to protect the balance between the world of the living and the realm of spirits.

  • Dual Wielding: Ichigo normally uses the longer Zangetsu but he can pull out the shorter one to increase his attack power.
  • Flash Step: Ichigo makes liberal use of the Flash Step technique to effectively teleport.
  • Super Mode: Ichigo can transform into his Merged Hollow Form, which is a combination of his Hollow, Soul Reaper, and Quincy powers; and can also activate his Bankai, Tensa Zangetsu, to fuse his swords into one.
  • Sword Beam: Ichigo can use Getsuga Tensho — which the game localizes as "Piercer of Heavens", to launch crescent-shaped blasts of Spirit Energy from his Zanpakuto. Getsuga Jūjishō — — which the game localizes as "Piercer of Heavens: Moon Fang Cross Blast" — is a variant where he launches a cross-shaped blast from both his swords.

    Rukia Kuchiki 

Voiced by: Fumiko Orikasa

    Sosuke Aizen 

Voiced by: Sho Hayami

Once one of the most respected members of the Soul Society, Sosuke Aizen is a devious mastermind with unmatched ambition and power in equal measure.

  • Enemy Mine: In the final chapter, he and Ichigo set aside their differences to help the heroes reach Umbras. For Aizen, this is merely because Prometheus's plans would interfere with his own.
  • Master of Illusion: Aizen's Zanpakuto, Kyoka Suigetsu, allows him to manipulate his victims' senses to make them see, hear, and feel whatever he wants them to.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: He teams up with Ichigo because Prometheus' plans interfered with his own.

    Renji Abarai 

Voiced by: Kentaro Ito

    Toshiro Hitsugaya 

Voiced by: Romi Park

The captain of the Soul Society's 10th Division of the Goten 13, Toshiro Hitsugaya is a stern and sharp-witted young man whose Zanpakuto, Hyrorinmaru, grants him control over water to a deadly degree.

    Grimmjow Jaegarjaquez 

Voiced by: Junichi Suwabe

Grimmjow is an Arrancar, a Hollow who removed their mask and gained power that rivaled even the Soul Reapers thanks to Aizen. He may seem laid back and easy-going, but he is as dangerous as his temper is short!

Boruto Characters

    Boruto Uzumaki 

Voiced by: Yuko Sanpei

The son of Naruto and his wife Hinata Hyuuga, Boruto is a young ninja prodigy has the talents and abilities of both of his parents, honed by his mentor Sasuke, and a fiery and defiant personality just like his father.

  • Kid from the Future: In a sense. Here, Boruto gets to interact with pre-adult versions of his father and mentor.

City Hunter Characters

    Ryo Saeba 

Voiced by: Akira Kamiya

Ryo Saeba is an urban mercenary who, as part of the "City Hunter" team based in Tokyo along with his partner Kaori Makimura, will take on any job for the right price. Though he may seem like a skirt-chasing doofus, he is actually a former guerrilla child soldier and a deadly marksman.

  • Badass Normal: The sole playable member of the cast with no actual powers, just skills and marksmanship.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: One's first impression of Ryo is that of a man who does most of his thinking with his loins. This belies the fact that he is one of the most deadly gunmen in the world.
  • Casanova Wannabe: His first action upon being recruited into Jump Force is hitting on Boa Hancock (and being soundly rejected).
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: With his Python he can fire six shots in the same hole at 15 meters, and his S&W Model 58, due a quirk of fabrication, allows him to do the same at 50. Also, using a Remington Model 700 he can shoot the barrel of another rifle, buttons of a shirt and a belt (the latter without harming the guy wearing them) at about one kilometer.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • Ryo's Ultimate attack is called "XYZ": the letters that would be written onto a bulletin board in Shinjuku by prospective clients to indicate that their situation has grown dire enough to require his services.
    • Attempting to perform throws as Ryo on female characters will result in Ryo attempting to cop a feel, only to get stopped by Kaori's giant hammer.
  • Walking Armory: He carries a wide array of weapons into battle, from his trusty Colt Magnum to machine guns, sniper rifles, and even rocket launchers.

Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai Characters


Voiced by: Toshiko Fujita

When the evil Demon King sought to conquer the world by wreaking havoc with his monster hordes, a young boy named Dai was thrust into an adventure to battle the wicked overlord and save the day.

  • Magic Knight: Dai is primarily a physical fighter, but he does have a few magic attacks up his sleeves.
  • Reverse Grip. Dai holds his sword upside down.
  • Sword and Fist: Dai uses punches and kicks in conjunction with swordplay.
  • Sword Beam: The Avan Strash Arrow.

Death Note Characters

    Light Yagami 

Voiced by: Mamoru Miyano

Light Yagami is a bitter young man who had grown disillusioned with a world he considered corrupt beyond redemption. With the Death Note in his hand, he now aims to become the god of a new world in which any he considers sinful are immediately put to death.

  • Adaptational Dumbass: Very downplayed, but he openly talks to Ryuk when talking to others like the OC and Luffy. In the anime, Light was always careful to ignore Ryuk when surrounded by other people.
  • Affably Evil: Despite his selfish desires, Light is unquestionably polite and cordial towards the heroes.
  • Artifact of Doom: Light is in possession of a Death Note, a mystical book with the ability to control a person's cause, date, and time of death, as long as the writer knows that person's full name. Subverted however, he doesn't have the notebook during the story mode, which is the reason he is Playing Both Sides.
  • Ascended Extra: Light previously appeared in Jump Ultimate Stars as a support character. Here he'll be playing a much larger and more important role in the game's main story. Subverted, given that he does very little in the story outside of serving as a cliffhanger.
  • Badass Normal: Unlike the other heroes, he has no super powers or super strength. However, he has charm, intelligence, uses complex mind games and schemes in lieu of direct combat.
  • Big Damn Heroes: After Prometheus steals the Player Character's umbras cube, Light arrives with Kane in tow, who gives his own cube to the PC and gives the heroes the chance they need to defeat Prometheus.
  • The Mole: Ostensibly, he is an ally of the Jump Force. In truth, however, he is merely using them to advance an agenda of his own...
  • Non-Action Guy: While he plays an important role in the story mode, Light is not a playable character in his own right. Rather fitting for someone who uses complex mind games and schemes in lieu of direct combat.
  • Playing Both Sides: He plays both Jump Force and the villains like fiddle on a stick, and neither side is the wiser.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: His ambitions to become god of a new world has no room for someone like Kane or Prometheus getting in the way, so he aids the heroes in defeating their least for as long as it will take to find his Death Note.
  • Red Herring: Even if the heroes ever actually discovered that he's The Mole, they would have caught the wrong traitor in their midst.
  • Token Evil Teammate: He's an ally of Jump Force, but only because they have common enemies. Justified since nobody knows how evil he truly is, so the rest of the team thinks he's a true blue ally.

A shinigami (a god of death) who owned the Death Note that now lies in Light Yagami's possession. Ryuk's loyalties are unknown, but he has allied himself with Light out of morbid curiosity to see where his ambitions lead him.
  • Invisible to Normals: Only those who have touched a shinigami's Death Note can see them. The Player Character, however, can see them regardless.
  • Non-Action Guy: Like Light, he is not a playable fighter. This is to be expected, considering he doesn't like to get his hands dirty in the affairs of mortals and prefers the role of an observer.
  • The Voiceless: Only Light can hear his voice. Otherwise, he seems completely silent.

Dragon Ball Characters

    Son Goku 

Voiced by: Masako Nozawa

Born Kakarot, Son Goku in on'yomi or Sun Wukong in pinyin (as he is directly based off of and named after the Journey to the West protagonist of the same name) is a Saiyan warrior who had been sent to Earth in the hopes that he would subjugate it. Instead, he would become the planet's greatest champion, and a martial artist without peer. In Jump Force, Goku serves as the leader of Umbras Base's Alpha Team, taking the fight to the enemies head-on.

  • Ki Manipulation: The Kamehameha, natch.
  • Physical God: He's this as a Super Saiyan Blue, since it required God Ki to utilize.
  • Super Mode: Goku can transform into a Super Saiyan. With a completely full Awakening meter, he can power up further to Super Saiyan Blue.


Voiced by: Ryusei Nakao

An intergalactic conqueror feared throughout the cosmos, Frieza is a dangerous tyrant who will not rest until he gains total dominion over the universe and his hated nemeses, the Saiyans, are eradicated.

  • Super Mode: Shown in gameplay and screenshots of the NYCC build of the game, Frieza can transform into his 100% Final Form as well as his Golden Form.


Voiced by: Ryo Horikawa

The prince of all Saiyans, Vegeta originally came to Earth to gain immortality with the Dragon Balls. His rivalry with Goku would temper his wicked nature over time, until he became one of the Earth's most stalwart protectors.

  • The Rival: Vegeta's rivalry with Goku is the stuff of legends.

Voiced by: Takeshi Kusao

Hailing from a future ravaged by androids, Trunks is the half-Saiyan son of Vegeta and Bulma Brief. In the hopes of averting disaster, he has traveled into the past to fight alongside the world's strongest heroes.

  • Genius Bruiser: He has every bit his father's fighting prowess, as well as his mother's keen intellect.
  • Super Mode: Super Saiyan, natch.
  • Sword and Fist: Fights predominantly with martial arts, but also employs a sword in many of his attacks.


Voiced by: Kōzō Shioya

Majin Buu is an ancient monster that, on multiple occasions, threatened the entire universe. Now, thanks to the influence of the world-famous "hero" Mr. Satan, Buu is a jolly friend of Earth's defenders...just so long as they don't get between him and delicious candy.

Fist of the North Star Characters


Voiced by: Katsuyuki Konishi

Following a nuclear war that destroyed civilization, the deadly martial art known as Hokuto Shinken lives on in Kenshiro, a man looking for his love, Yuria. On his travels, he stops to help innocents in this new world by dealing with its rise of gangs, crooks, and rival fighters with similar techniques.

  • All Your Powers Combined: Kenshiro's Awakening attack has him use the abilities of his rivals and friends, including those of Nanto Seiken (the opposing school to Hokuto Shinken), in rapid succession.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Come on, it wouldn't be Ken without this.
  • Super Mode: Kenshiro can activate Musou Tensei, which allows him to move more quickly and strike harder.

Hunter × Hunter Characters


Voiced by: Megumi Han

Gon Freecs is a Rookie Hunter, an aspiring adventurer and son of the legendary Hunter Ging. When his father went missing, Gon embarked on a grand adventure to find him.

  • Gameplay and Story Integration: Gon's Super Mode is the result of him "summoning all of the power he will ever have" to kill his enemy, the Chimera Ant Neferpitou; while he succeeded, it left him at death's door and after he was healed, he was unable to use his nen. In-game, using the super takes him out of the fight.


Voiced by: Mariya Ise

The young scion of the Zoldyck family of assassins who forsook his lineage to become a Hunter. He is best friends with Gon and a formidable fighter besides, possessing the ability to manipulate electricity in addition to his natural lethality as an assassin.


Voiced by: Miyuki Sawashiro

Voiced by: Kouki Uchiyama

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Characters

    Jotaro Kujo 

Voiced by: Daisuke Ono

The young scion of the Joestar generation bloodline born into the Kujo family, Jotaro Kujo is a delinquent with a bad attitude and a bizarre power to summon a Stand, a manifestation of his willpower, called "Star Platinum". What makes Jotaro a formidable fighter is not simply raw strength, but a sharp intellect that lets him outwit even the craftiest of foes.

  • Fighting Spirit: His Stand Star Platinum is a major Trope Codifier.
  • Finger Poke of Doom: The Star Finger, an attack in which Star Platinum extends its fingers to attack, appears as one of Jotaro's moves.
  • Genius Bruiser: The Joestars are an entire family of genius bruisers, and Jotaro is no exception; he's built like a football player, but can defeat his foes by outwitting them and, later in his home series, goes on to earn a Ph.D in marine biology.
  • Promoted to Playable: After he and DIO were Dummied Out of J-Stars Victory Vs., Jotaro finally makes another appearance in a Jump crossover game.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Star Platinum's main method of attacking is unleashing rapid-fire barrages of punches.
  • Time Stands Still: From his fight with DIO, Jotaro managed to learn how to stop time for several seconds.
  • Younger Than They Look: As he's based on his appearance in Part 3, Jotaro is 17 years old in Jump Force, and like many other Joestars, he certainly doesn't look it.


Voiced by: Takehito Koyasu

The ancient nemesis of the Joestar family, Dio Brando forsook his humanity to become a vampire in a bid to rule over the world as a god. He was thought destroyed after a fight to the death with Jotaro's ancestor, Johnathan Joestar, but not only did the now-named DIO survive his brush with death; he now has a Stand called "The World", which allows him to halt the flow of time itself.

  • Death from Above: One of DIO's signature moves is to drop a road roller on his opponent in order to crush them.
  • Fighting Spirit: Like Jotaro, DIO has a Stand, known as The World.
  • Gameplay and Story Integration: Since sunlight would destroy him, every stage defaults to nighttime when he is in play. Except for Namek, which has three suns and no nighttime; if DIO is on a player's team, they can't battle on Namek.
  • Genius Bruiser: Similar to Jotaro and the Joestars, DIO has a powerful physical build and intelligence rivaled by precious few, having graduated as valedictorian with a law degree before becoming a vampire and owning a massive library afterwards.
  • Kiai: "MUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDA!" Translation 
  • Knife Nut: One of DIO's specials has him toss knives at his opponent, taking advantage of The World's time-stopping power to help his knives land.
  • Older Than They Look: Thanks to his vampirism, DIO maintains his 20-year-old appearance from Part 1, well over a century later.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: DIO's vampiric abilities include the ability to drain victims of blood through his fingers, firing projectiles from his eyes, and lowering his body temperature to freeze his victims; most of which he stopped using after gaining The World. As a vampire, however, he is still very vulnerable to sunlight and the power of Hamon.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: The World can punch hard and fast enough to keep up with Star Platinum.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": In Part 1 of his home series, his name was spelled with correct capitalization in English and katakana in Japanese. Starting with Part 3, his name is spelled, both in the Japanese manga and abroad, in uppercase English letters as "DIO", although the localizations of the game use the regular spelling of his name as "Dio".
  • Time Stands Still: The World can halt the flow of time for a few seconds, allowing DIO to move freely and attack his foes while they are unable to move or even perceive what is happening to them.
  • Weakened by the Light: Sunlight destroys vampires. Ergo, if DIO is on a player's team, the stage defaults to nighttime.

My Hero Academia Characters

    Izuku "Deku" Midoriya 

Voiced by: Daiki Yamashita

Izuku Midoriya was born without a Quirk power but still dreamed of becoming a Hero like his idol All Might. After risking his life to save his classmate, All Might shared with him the power of One for All, granting him incredible strength. Naming his own Hero persona "Deku", Midoriya attends UA High to become the greatest Hero and the next Symbol of Peace.

  • Badass Boast: He outright tells Goku he will not be his punching bag. Considering that Midoriya is way out of his league by fighting Goku, this is a bold statement.
    Deku: Goku... I'm not gonna be your punching bag!
    Goku: Don't be so nervous! It'll hold you back!
  • Battle Aura: When tapping into One For All, Midoriya's body becomes enveloped by bright green electricity.
  • Finger Poke of Doom: Midoriya's Delaware Smash attack creates a quick and powerful projectile of compressed air with a finger flick.
  • Genius Bruiser: Midoriya is near the top of his class in studies, is creative enough to find ways to balance the strengths and drawbacks of his Quirk, has an impressive muscular build in spite of his short stature, and can punch with enough force to shatter concrete.
  • You Remind Me of X: Blackbeard's powers reminds Deku of his classmate Tokoyami.

    Katsuki Bakugo 

Voiced by: Nobuhiko Okamoto

With a Quirk as explosive as his temper, Katsuki Bakugo has his sights set high on becoming the most famous hero in history. While he was childhood friends with Midoriya (who refers to him by the nickname "Kacchan"), he grew into a brash bully who does not take kindly to being merely second-best. The rivalry he would forge with "Deku", however, would help the two become greater heroes.

    All Might 

Voiced by: Kenta Miyake

Toshinori Yagi, better known to the world as All Might, is the most famous hero in the world, as well as the teacher of Midoriya and Bakugo. Like Midoriya, he was a Quirkless young man who received the power of One For All from his own mentor. Even with his body breaking down from serious injuries, he is dedicated to protecting the world and helping Midoriya eventually succeed him as the Symbol of Peace.

  • The Ace: Despite suffering serious injuries, he remains an incredibly powerful hero.

In Jump Force, Naruto serves as the leader of the Gamma Team, which is tasked with intelligence gathering and surveillance.

Voiced by: Noriaki Sugiyama

The last scion of the Uchiha clan, Sasuke is a prodigal shinobi with a chip on his shoulder. Upset over the sordid fate that had been dealt to his family, he has taken it upon himself to ensure those responsible for their deaths pay.

  • Fighting Spirit: With his Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan, Sasuke can summon an entity called Susanoo, ranging from a defensive ribcage to a massive samurai tengu.
  • Magical Eye: Sasuke has the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan and Rinnegan ocular kekkei genkai, which grant him an array of superpowers.
  • Playing with Fire: Two of Sasuke's specials are fire-based jutsu attacks. Fire Style: Fire Ball Jutsu creates a fireball that attacks enemies at range, while Amaterasu is a Sharingan-based attack that ignites a patch of ground in his field of vision with black flames.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Sasuke's right eye is a permanently activated Mangekyou Sharingan.
  • The Rival: To who else? Naruto.
  • Shock and Awe: Sasuke's signature technique is the Chidori, a lightning-based ninjutsu he learned from his teacher Kakashi.

    Kakashi Hatake 

Voiced by: Kazuhiko Inoue

One of the most renowned members of the Hidden Leaf Village, Kakashi Hatake has served as a teacher to both Naruto and Sasuke. The masked shinobi may seem aloof and goofy, but he was once made a captain of the elite ANBU unit for very good reason.

  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Usually concealed by his headband, Kakashi's left eye, a memento from his old friend Obito Uchiha, has a permanently-active crimson-red Sharingan.
  • Shock and Awe: He created the Chidori ninjutsu, the same technique that would be taught to (and later improved by) his pupil Sasuke. His own variant of the technique is called the Lightning Blade, so named because he used it to split a bolt of lightning.


Voiced by: Akira Ishida

Gaara was once made host of the One-Tailed Tanuki to serve as a living weapon of mass destruction, a fate that led him to despise humanity until he met Naruto, a fellow jinchuriki. Now, he serves as the young and wise leader of his people, and one of Naruto's strongest allies.

  • A Child Shall Lead Them: He was made Kazekage, the leader of the Hidden Sand Village, as a teenager.
  • Sand Blaster: He has the ability to control sand, which he uses in increasingly creative and destructive ways.

    Kaguya Otsutsuki
