Emergency Everyday

For characters who appeared in the Vaporware Spiritual Predecessor to the Len'en Project, Emergency Everyday.
     Lapxus in general 

Lapxus is a club of odd, unusual, or otherwise quirky people who work together to, as according to the club decree, "create things". Currently, a large amount of their members disappearing has become a large incident in the real world; their real situation being that they have been spirited away to a "2D world" for reasons unknown.

  • Ambiguous Gender: Completely averted, as opposed to the way genders work in the current Len'en Project. All featured Lapxus members are clearly male.
  • Author Avatar: The entire group of Lapxus once existed in real life as a short-lived doujin circle, with all members being given their own seperate Author Avatars within Emergency Everyday. As it stands now, all rights to the Len'en Project have been given to the current developer, JynX, who saw the members of Lapxus as "upperclassmen" to him.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: What Lapxus as a whole is compromised of. Of the members shown, we have two Know-Nothing Know-It-Alls, one being a Godlike Gamer, and another being a nonsensical Otaku with wish fulfillment fantasies, a perverted Mad Bomber Shout-Out to Metal Gear, and a now-deceased Vengeful Ghost.
  • Self-Deprecation: Given that all members of Lapxus in-game are based off of real people, the ways that they are portrayed (described below) should speak volumes.
  • Spiritual Predecessor: The group's situation is this to the situation that the cast of EE, is dealing with, especially given the repercussions of their disappearance from the Outside World, down to the fact that it has become a widely-spread news story.

Otaku Beyond Human Intellect
"Hello?! A whole other world?! Can you say GIT HYPE?!"

An otaku who is friends with many members of Lapxus, to the point where he is treated as an honorary member. While already an extremely-extroverted oddball from the start, being inexplicably transported to another world as a result of their uncontrollable power to cross dimensions may exacerbate problems further.

  • Author Avatar: Implied, given that the other named members of Lapxus are named after the actual developers of Emergency Everyday.
  • Book Dumb: To the point where he can't bother with understanding the mathematics and physics needed to control his own ability.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Short gray hair.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Even among the weirdos that make up Lapxus, Serintsu stands out by a considerable margin. Unsurprisingly, many of Serintsu's personality traits would later be passed along to both Yabusame and Clause.
  • Eye Color Dissonance: The quality of the video that shows off Emergency Everyday (the only evidence of its' existence) makes it extremely hard to tell as to what Serintsu's eye color is, with most people seeing his eyes as gray as their hair, while Re;Emergency Everyday sees their eye color as yellow instead.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Has the desire to be as cool as the person he plays himself up to be; coincidentally, his sudden warping to "the 2D world" gives him that opportunity.
  • Know-Nothing Know-It-All: Very clearly meant to be portrayed as this, given his heavy Otaku tendencies and his generally-bizarre worldview. Even Word of God states that as smart as he makes himself look and sound, he does not have any legitimate academia to back himself up with.
  • L33t L1ng0: Has a tendency to use informal internet slang and odd 2ch memes in his sentences.
  • Leitmotif: While he has none in the original game, Re;Emergency Everyday gives him one; CROSS the DIMENSION.
  • Mood-Swinger: Will begin to spout L33t L1ng0 nonsense at the drop of a hat. This is also influenced by his current environment; with "the 2D world" being the environment in question, that gives Serintsu a lot of leeway to act the way he does.
  • Nice Hat: An academic cap.
  • Portal Network: Implied to be how his ability works. Like Yabusame, they cannot fully understand how it works, nor how to control it.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: According to his profile, his normally-gray eyes turn purplish-red when he's angry, but that comes more from his chronic dry eyes than anything else.
  • Spiritual Predecessor:

     Big Boss and Shinkuu
Left: Big Boss Right: Shinkuu

Common tropes between both characters:

  • Author Avatar: Both characters are this to BIGBOSS, who had a hand in developing Emergency Everyday. According to Word of God, "Shinkuu" is an additional pseudonym of theirs.
  • Dual Boss: They are both fought together.
  • Leitmotif: Secretly-Stealthy Sneaking Snake.
  • Oh, No... Not Again!: Their dialogue states that they were attacked by the fake Daijin prior to Serintsu encountering them. Serintsu also defeating them is something they find quite annoying.
  • Those Two Guys: Big Boss and Shinkuu have no connection between eachother other than the fact that they are Lapxus members who are depending on one another in order to survive in "the 2D world".

Brave Vengeful Spirit
"I went without food for just one day, and boom, I starved to death. 'm hungryyy."

A member of Lapxus who was transported to "the 2D world" alongside Serintsu, Big Boss, and Daijin. He's become ghost as a result of dying by way of starvation upon being spirited away, but seems fine otherwise. His ability is to have out-of-body experiences.

Strong-Willed Child of Man
Big Boss
"Why have you come to this world too, though? Nobody ever asked for more 2D boys, yanno."

A member of Lapxus who was transported to "the 2D world" alongside Serintsu, Shinkuu, and Daijin. His ability is to become undetectable whenever he hides under a cardboard box.

     Red-White and White-Black

Two People Lost in a Dreadful Place
Red-White and White Black

White-Black: "We've found someone who looks like they could guide us, haven't we?"
Red-White: "Quit looking for a guide and start looking for the destination already!"
White-Black: "What's that s'posed ta mean? A guide was our destination in the first place, right?"

A pair of bickering people who are seemingly lost trying to find... whatever it is they're trying to find. They are totally not supposed to be Reimu Hakurei and Marisa Kirisame.

  • Combination Attack: Dream Cannon "Daredevilry", which uses Red-White's yin-yang orbs and White-Black's lasers and bullets.
  • Dual Boss: Their fight initially has them using individual attacks, but they both are fought during the final spellcard.
  • Leitmotif: Eastern Medley, which is a mashup of songs from IN and IaMP.
  • Meaningful Name: Are named after the primarily colors used in their clothes; fittingly, some characters from Touhou, like Patchouli, have nicknamed them like this in canon.
  • No Sense of Direction: White-Black really has no clue as to where to go, especially considering the fact that she was expecting the player characters to guide them. Given who she is supposed to be, it's expected.
  • Oh, No... Not Again!: Their dialogue states that they were attacked by the fake Daijin prior to Serintsu encountering them. Serintsu also defeating them is something they find quite annoying.
  • Spiritual Predecessor:
    • To the Stage 4 Dual Bosses from RMI, as their fights have sequential spellcards from both individual bosses, and one final Combination Attack. The Leitmotifs were also mashups of past character themes.
    • To Haiji, as they also make several obvious references to Touhou spellcards.
  • Writing Around Trademarks: While they are clearly who they are meant to be, the game tiptoes around using their real names or where they've come from.


True-Born Black Gamer

"Ah~, uh... well, hey there. So you came here too?"

A member of Lapxus who was transported to "the 2D world" alongside Serintsu, Big Boss, and Shinkuu... or so you'd think; in reality, the person who appears as Daijin is actually an impostor who is going around and fighting the members of Lapxus as a means of testing their abilities. Their ability allows them to have fun while playing video games.

  • Author Avatar: Of the similarly-named main developer, composer, and artist of Emergency Everyday. Fittingly, the real Daijin still holds some influence over the Len'en Project presently, being JynX's main playtester, as well as someone who provides some ideas for the games and stories.
  • Bad Liar: It's pretty clear that he really has no clue as to who the Lapxus members really are, even though he's impersonating one of their members.
  • Big Bad: Given that he's the inspiration for Tsurubami, who was the Big Bad of Evanescent Existence, it's pretty obvious as to what his role in Emergency Everyday would've been.
  • Bonus Boss: The impostor even said outright that Serintsu would've "seen them in the Extra Stage", implying that their real form would be fought there.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Black hair and black eyes.
  • Fun with Acronyms: Many of Daijin's spell names have an acronym-based suffix, such as FDS ("Flying Disk System") and MOD.
  • Godlike Gamer: The real Daijin has quite the skill with videogames, being called a "capital-G gamer" in his profile. This even extends into his real ability of manipulating game consoles themselves, akin to Tsubakura's manipulation of technology.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: While the fact that the impostor is testing the abilities of the spirited-away Lapxus members ha been made clear, what they're doing it for is left unclear due to the game's life being Cut Short.
  • Imposter Forgot One Detail: Namely, the real Daijin's mannerisms. This really confuses Serintsu, who expects Daijin to act like his normal, aloof, sporadic self, but is instead witness to his impostor's proactive and reserved personality.
    Serintsu: "You sound kind of stilted, y'know? Did you lose your lunch or something?"
  • Know-Nothing Know-It-All: Like Serintsu, Daijin has knowledge of many random topics. His profile even straight-up calls him a "loud-mouthed know-it-all".
  • Leitmotif: SAVE the GAME.
  • Nice Hat: A black stovepipe hat with a red band.
  • Spiritual Predecessor:
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: According to Serintsu's scenario, he usually plays the straight man to Serintsu's wise guy in standard conversation.
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: While the other Lapxus members have abilities that would garner use in some way, "enjoying video games" isn't the coolest-sounding thing...
    • Heart Is an Awesome Power: ...except, as Len'en Project abilities are purposefully meant to be vague, this extends to Daijin being able to manipulate game consoles in the same way as Tsubakura manipulates technology.


Miscellaneous characters

For characters who exist in the canon of the Len'en Project, but have not made full appearances in any of the games.


Vtuber Android

"Full-body movement is a huge workload for me, so we'll only be showing our heads from here on out!"

Full model name "Monochroid[Rei] = _Type_iX01[Tsubakura];", Rei is a virtual android that resembles Tsubakura, and who is designated as the "goodwill ambassador" of Mugenri, despite having never even seen Mugenri previously. It's currently unknown as to who created them. They are also considered a member of Trick Nostalgie alongside Len'en Project creator JynX.


Super Android's Friend

"Don't talk about behind the scenes information too much."

Full model name "Monochroid[Zelo] = _Type_iX02[Yabusame];", Zelo is a virtual android that resembles Yabusame, created by Rei as a means of having a friend to work with. Like Rei, Zelo helps to show off developmental updates for the Len'en Project. They are also considered a member of Trick Nostalgie alongside Len'en Project creator JynX.

     Hoojiro Shitodo and Hal (spoilers) 

Hoojiro: "Heeey, can you hear me?"
Hal: "I can hear you. Well, it's not like I can hear you."
Left: Hoojiro Right: Hal

Two mysterious characters who Rei brought to the attention of the Len'en Project's fanbase on Twitter during the series' fifth Milestone Celebration. According to the available details, these two characters used to work with Tsubakura in the past as lab partners, before Tsubakura was spirited away to Mugenri, and are currently on a "dimensional tour" of sorts.

After mass speculation, Hal and Hoojiro were officially confirmed to be two characters that predate the existence of all other Len'en Project characters; Their first appearance came from a one-off music video created by JynX a year prior to the development of Evanescent Existence, detailing the characters' travels on a trans-dimensional limited express train called "The Wings of Magritte".

When questioned about their existence during an interview after the release of Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle, JynX specified that their identities and motives were "a secret to be revealed at a later time". Further details shown in the stories included in A World That Isn't Fantasy mention that they both are trying to figure out the whereabouts of Tsubakura and their spirited-away friends, amongst other things.

Common tropes between both characters:

  • Ambiguous Gender: Defied compared with most other characters. Hoojiro and Hal are canonically female.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Only recently appeared out of nowhere, and already have been revealed to possibly have important connections towards both Mugenri and the Outside World.
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: Hoojiro is shown to be clearly taller than Hal, who is almost child-like in terms of height.
  • Chekov's Gunmen: They seem to hold a lot of important information regarding Tsubakura's past, the Outside World, and Rei's origins, for a start.
  • The Ghosts: They were initially this, before they were revealed to be the Magritte passengers; their only visual descriptions came from their Twitter avatars, which only explained so much about them beforehand.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Consider themselves old friends, to the point that them setting up Twitter accounts was to reconnect with eachother.
  • Interclass Friendship: While it's not stated that the Shitodos are poor in the Outside World, it is made clear that Hal is "loaded", according to Hoojiro on Twitter.
  • Unknown Characters: Everything about them is considered quite mysterious.
  • Walking Spoilers: Their existence helps shed light as to what the Outside World of the Len'en Project is like, and connections between them and Tsubakura's Mysterious Past.
Her avatar on Twitter.
Hoojiro Shitodo
Is her spirit of intellectual inquiry awakening? Or is she just gathering information for the sake of the investigation as she has no other choice?

One of Tsubakura's old lab partners from the Outside World, and the oldest of the Shitodo siblings. She is also a member of the group, the "Fillers of the Ivory Cup", who are a philosophical coalition according to Hal.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Seemingly has her own "situation at home", according to Hal on Twitter. While it isn't explained in any further detail, it may be implied to be her siblings' disappearance from the Outside World.
  • Animal Motifs: The meadow bunting, a type of bird, much like the bunting-related Bird's Names that her siblings have.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Much like the other Shitodo siblings, Hoojiro has a color-based nickname; "Shiro".
  • Aloof Older Sister: Taken Up to Eleven to the point of apathy, as she is indifferent to the whereabouts of her younger siblings even though, as confirmed by Word of God, their disappearance from the Outside World is a very publicized incident. What she states in A World That Isn't Fantasy however, shows that she does trust Kuroji to protect Aoji and Hooaka to an extent.
  • Character Blog: They have their own Twitter account, @3DM5r5AOnKN9RPN.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Hoojiro has white hair and white eyes, as befitting of her nickname "Shiro".
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Hoojiro's existence was already teased during Suzumi's dialouge with Aoji in the Secret Team's route in Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle, with Aoji asking Suzumi if they really thinks they are "dead weight to Shiro, Kuro, and Aka".
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: A Downplayed example in that, as having only set up their Twitter account recently, she doesn't understand as to what it means when Rei says she can "DM" them.
    Hoojiro: "What's a DM?"
    Hal: "Look it up yourself."
    Hoojiro: "How do I do it?"
    • Later Twitter interactions show that they don't even understand how emailing Hal works, as well.
  • Mystical White Hair: With a slight shade of turquoise in it, at that.
  • Oh, Crap!: Her reaction to one of Rei's tweets gives off this feeling.
    Hoojiro: "Wait a second. What is this. Who is this? They know about Mugenri too."
  • Portmanteau: Her first name combines parts of her younger siblings' names; Hooaka, Aoji, Kuroji.
  • Sempai/Kohai: Still sees her previous relationship with Tsubakura in this regard, even still referring to them as "Tsubakura-sama" for old time's sake.
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: She doesn't really explain as to what her "Fillers of the Ivory Cup" group do, or how they contribute to philosophy in the Outside World.

"Yes, I get it, you’re not scientists, you’re philosophers."
