A Corpse in Search of Themself
Sese Kitsugai

A gashadokuro who excavates the underground searching for bones in order to became stronger and regain their original form.

  • Ballistic Bone: Being a gashadokuro, they have a wide variety of bone-related attacks, such as Thrown Bone "Bone Boomerang" and Cruel Death "Punishment of Bone Skewers". The bones are few in numbers, but they are spinning and huge bones.
  • Bad with the Bone: Many of their attacks, including their playable shot, use bones as projectiles.
  • Bonus Boss: Of the Hidden Extra Stage.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: They get scolded in Reactivate Majestical Imperial for excavating tombs in the Human Village. According to them, they were just looking for their bones.
  • Came Back Strong: They come back for the Hidden Extra Stage, after stealing the spirits the player character was recollecting. They aren't only stronger, but now they have the ability to conquer the above-ground! According to them, that's their real form.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Their hair and eyes are the same green color.
  • Dem Bones: Comes with the territory for gashadokuro.
  • Determinator: Nothing will stop them in their way to become a greater youkai.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: They attack with huge spinning bones.
  • Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: Sese is not in any way connected to the main plot. They just attack for the lulz.
  • Leitmotif: “Cadaveromancer ~ Dream of an Empty Husk”, "Those Dwelling in Unreality", and "Necromaster"
  • Recurring Boss: Shows up for all of stage 1, then doesn't come back until the extra stage as a midboss. And then they come back again for the Hidden Extra stage.
  • Magikarp Power: As a player in Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle. Their shot type starts out as the weakest of all the characters, slightly below Hooaka's initial shot type. However, as soon as they reach 60% power, they acquire an absolutely devastating option that can destroy enemies in matters of seconds, sometimes before they've even started their nonspell/spellcard properly, given you can actually attack the enemy/boss at point blank. However, it's made easier due to the fact Sese has the tiniest hitbox of all the playable characters, allowing them to squeeze through tight patterns easily to get as close from the boss as possible to unleash their fury.
    • JynX has attempted to subvert this through later updates, giving bosses an invincibility barrier for a few seconds at the start of their nonspell or spellcard so they can be fired properly, nerfing Sese significantly, but they still remain the strongest character of the roster given the conditions to unleash their powerful fury are met, making them more of a Lethal Joke Character at this point.
  • Shoulder Cannon: Gains one in the EX+α of Reactivate Majestical Imperial, made out of a vertabral column.
  • Skull for a Head: Or for a helmet, that is.
  • Third-Person Person: They talk like a little child, referring to themself in third person.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Who would have imagined that they were the Hidden Extra Boss?
  • Token Mini-Moe: They are much the same height as Sukune and they're stated to have the appearance of a young child.
  • Wave-Motion Gun: Gains a spellcard that does this, Marrow Cannon "Bone Buster", in the EX+α. This becomes their bomb in Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle.

     Tsugumi Umatachi
Eggplant-Decorating Jockey (RMI)
Failthful Pumpkin Auriga (BPoHC)
Tsugumi Umatachi

"Would you just shut up already! I'm supposed to collect these spirits!"

A jockey youkai who was hired by Iyozane to herd the spirits for their resurrection ceremony. Has the ability to ride on everything.

  • Ambiguous Situation: They are implied to have much more importance in the overarching plot that is thought, given that BPoHC makes light of an unexplained situation between them and Tsurubami, and that they bear a Bird's Name alongside other important characters in the series. It is quite amusingly ironic to see that they have more importance to the story than either of their superiors.
  • Berserk Button: If you point they are riding an eggplant.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Their hair and eyes are the same yellow color.
  • The Cynic: BPoHC reveals Tsugumi to be this, having a rather pessimistic outlook. One of their skill quotes outright says "Nothing decent can come of life."
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: They attack with rotational danmaku. In Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle, their sprite spins around!
  • Grumpy Bear: They have that annoyed look on their face for most of their sprites.
  • I Choose to Stay: Even though Chouki warns them that Fumikado will betray them, they decide to remain by Fumikado's side, but only because they wouldn't get paid otherwise.
  • Joke Character: An eggplant youkai? Really?
  • Kansai Regional Accent: It's fake, though.
  • Leitmotif: “"Get Ready" MK-I ~ To Run Around!”
  • Nice Hat: A jockey hat.
  • Servile Snarker: Tsugumi is an attendant to the self-proclaimed New Emperor of Mugenri, whom Tsugumi refers to as "Emperor Moron", "Their Uselessness", "Their Pitifulness", and others. To their face, mind you.
  • Shout-Out: A lot of their attributes including their grumpy attitude, riding skill, rotational attacks and fast movement make Tsugumi a fairly clear parallel to Johnny Joestar of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. They even wear similar clothes and star motifs.

     Fujiwara no Iyozane
Anachronistic Ambitious Person
Fujiwara no Iyozane

"When that person revives at dawn and becomes the emperor of the Mugenri Village, I'll become their chief advisor."

A Fallen Prince/ss who now lives a humble life. They team with Fumikado and helps them with their resurrection ceremony, hoping to become their chief advisor and slowly regain what they lost.

  • Affectionate Nickname: Sukune calls them either "Fuji" or "Fujiyo". And Tsugumi and Mitori call them "Iyo".
  • Back from the Dead: The reason why Iyozane is able to use the Koeda flute.
  • Bad Liar: As Fumikado soon finds out.
  • Butt-Monkey: Becomes one in "Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle". On top of being a Beleaguered Assistant to Fumikado, in the various Neutral routes they get shaken down for money and hit with four times the amount when they can't pay (Scoundrel), get unceremonoiusly beaten down after Bullying a Dragon (Preschool), get their soul partially eaten (Shrine), and are almost outright murdered (Secret). Poor Iyo needs a hug.
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel to Mitori's Cain: Iyozane wanted to befriend Mitori, Mitori poisoned them.
  • Childhood Friends: With Kunimitsu and Mitori.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Their hair and eyes are the same silver color.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Originally they were the first successor to the throne in the Capital City. However, they were killed by their half-sibling Mitori, who had found out they were an illegitimate child and was on a spree to kill all throne successors. Somehow, Iyozane was brought to life and ran away to live a humble life.
  • The Dragon: To Fumikado.
  • Enemy Mine: They partner with Fumikado in their resurrection ceremony despite being from a rival family.
  • Expy: Of Mononobe no Futo, as both have boats, their clans had a grudge with another royal family and is the servant of a character from a royal lineage who cheated death.
  • Flunky Boss: They are accompanied by a horde of ghosts during several of their attacks.
  • Freudian Excuse: Yes, they might be obsessed with becoming succesful and rich, but it's not hard to pity them after they lost their wealth and position.
  • I Choose to Stay: At the end of Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle, upon facing either Chouki (who resents Fumikado and tries to warn Iyozane that they'll betray them) or Mitori (who tried to assassinate Iyozane and is the current emperor), Iyozane decides to continue at Fumikado's side.
  • Leitmotif: “In the Gloomy Straits, Steady as She Goes”
  • Making a Splash: Their ability is manipulation of waves.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: After the events of Reactivate Majestical Imperial, they're starting to regret about allying with Fumikado.
  • Fallen Princess: From the first successor to the throne, to a humble boater.
  • You Killed My Father: Says this word for word to Mitori upon realizing that they were the one responsible for the coup d'état that killed the emperor. However, Iyozane says afterwards that their father was distant to his children anyway and only expresses pity that Mitori was driven to murder their family in order to get the throne.
    Iyozane: Then...have you seen their faces? Of the parents you murdered.
    Mitori: Iyo, do you resent me for it?
    Iyozane: No, not at all...

     Taira no Fumikado
The Vessel for the New Emperor
Taira no Fumikado

"I am the New Emperor's Vessel! I should be sitting on the royal throne right now!"

An orphan who was adopted by their grandfather. Said grandfather was an alchemist demon hunter who wanted to resurrect the "True Emperor", Taira no Masakado. For this, he created an homunculi with the corpse of a demon child. Unfortunately, he died before being completed, so Fumikado devoted their life to complete the homunculi and to transfer their soul to it. Unfortunately, their plan was thwarted and they had to wait for several years.

They are incredibly vain and proud despite their relatively low position in the hierarchy of Mugenri, (falsely) claiming to be a descendant of Taira no Masakado himself.

  • Affectionate Nickname: Yago, who is a kind of surrogate grandparent to Fumi, calls them "Fumikiddo" in the English translation
  • Blue Blood / The Clan: Leaving the whole thing about the homunculi and the "True Emperor" behind, their parents died on a political power dispute, so they are implied to be from a noble family.
  • Body Backup Drive: They keep on living by transferring all their memories to a new cloned body every time the active body is destroyed.
  • Cute Little Fangs: Justified, since their new body is the corpse of a demon child.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Fumikado refuses the throne after defeating Chouki, claiming they're not qualified to rule yet.
  • Expy: Of Toyosatomimi no Miko, as both are from royal lineage who cheated death by transferring their souls into another body. They also want to rule over the new land they find themselves into and have a pair of lackeys.
  • Happily Adopted: When they were human they lost both parents on a political power dispute and was raised by their grandfather and was able to live a relatively happy life with him until he died. Unfortunately their grandfather was a demon hunter who was obsessed with creating a homunculi and to make it "The True Emperor", and they became willing to go to extreme methods to continue their grandfather's research...
  • Humiliation Conga: First, the heroes thwarted their plans to resurrect Taira no Masakado. Then, Kuroji steals their money offscreen. And finally, they lose most of their allies and mocked for being "an emperor in name only".
  • I've Come Too Far: After Chouki reveals how they were abandoned, Fumikado reaches out for their teammates' support, but state they may abandon them the same way.
    Fumikado: In the past, I abandoned my subordinate..... no, my close ally!
    Tsugumi: ...And this person here is that ally of yours, and you cut them off entirely, that right?
    Iyozane: Looks like it...
    Fumikado: Now that you know the truth, will you still follow me? I might abandon you as well!
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite their haughty and condescending personality, they acknowledge if someone has more power than them, as seen is their treatment of Sese.
    • Jerkass: According to Garaiya, Fumikado was a Bad Boss and used to be more ruthless in their methods to achieve their goal of becoming the True Emperor. Garaiya is actually surprised to see that Fumikado is kinder to Iyozane and Tsugumi. It's implied that Chouki's death changed Fumikado's ways.
  • Leitmotif: Moon Child ~ Homunculus Dream
  • Me's a Crowd: They use clones of themselves for some of their spellcards. Justified, because of their power to transfer their soul and in case their current body died, they can transfer it to one of the clones.
  • No Sense of Direction: Considering they spend a significant portion of Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle lost, it's safe to say this is one of their many faults
  • Our Homunculi Are Different: What we see in Reactivate Majestical Imperial is not their true body, but their soul being transferred into the Artificial Human their (now deceased) grandfather created.
  • Rapunzel Hair: They have long green hair.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: It emphasizes their non-humanity.
  • Riches to Rags: Once from a noble family, then a fugitive on the run, then lost all their fiancian income in Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle thanks to the Shitodo siblings.
  • Soul Jar: As part of their process to help with their grandfather's research, they transferred their soul to the homunculi. They were planning to transfer Taira no Masakado's soul to their body, but failed after the heroes thwarted their plans.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Pretz, according to the anniversary images.
  • We Used to Be Friends: With Chouki.
  • Young Conqueror: In Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle, they try to take over Mugenri, despite failing to get Masakado's soul and losing their financial income and most of their allies.

An Individual Born from the Aggregate

"To give someone the power to control the forces of death It's a really bad thing ♪"

A youkai born from the evil flower Harujion, a strange flower that rarely blooms in Mugenri. Every time it blooms, it is quickly disposed off by Tsurubami. However, since they are currently on holiday in the Outside World and forgot to warn Yabusame and Tsubakura about this, the Harujion blooms once again without anyone to stop it. It blooms next to Fumikado's resurrection ceremony, provoking that an amount of spirits were absorbed by the flower, creating Shion.

  • Badass Adorable: A cute child with the innocence of a toddler (because they are a baby youkai) who is born from an Eldritch Abomination and is capable of eating the lifespan, soul and emotions of people.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: Having the power to absorb souls as one pleases is dangerous and Shion is very young and is mostly composed of evil spirits. Good thing Shion is responsible enough to know how dangerous it is, Creepy Child tendencies aside.
  • Big Eater: Shion enjoys eating a bit too much. They particularly likes eating souls of kind people and is interested to see if an Artificial Human (Kurohebi) has a soul and how it tastes.
  • Cheerful Child / Creepy Child: Likes clinging to Tsubakura like a little child at one minute and at the other minute they are talking about eating souls and how it can decrease the lifespan of people. All with a sweet smile on their face.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Their hair and eyes are the same pink color.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: One on the most genuine cases. In all endings of Reactivate Majestical Imperial they are seen hanging out at the Senri Shrine.
  • The Ditz: They are very childish and airhead, because they're only a newborn youkai.
  • Expy: Of Yuyuko Saigyouji. With the pink hair, airheadedness and Flower Motifs.
  • Flower Motifs: Philadelphia fleabane, a type of daisy.
  • Happily Adopted: They become interested in consuming Tsubakura's soul, so the latter adopts them into the Senri household.
  • Leitmotif: A Name Cast Off From the Edge
  • Living Lie Detector: One of the most prominent uses of their ability to smell auras
  • A Lizard Named "Liz": Their name is part of the word "Harushion" (Philadelphia fleabane).
  • No-Sell: They're unaffected by Bombs.
  • The Nose Knows: They claim to smell auras.
  • Slasher Smile: Has some disturbing ones when using their spellcards.
  • Spanner in the Works: To Fumikado.
  • Stealth Pun: Their final spellcard in Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle, "Monochrome Ghost", is pronounced in the original Japanese as "Monochrome Rei".
  • Token Mini-Moe: As shown in the endings, they are shorter than Sukune.
  • Younger Than They Look: They were born a few days ago before the incident in Reactivate Majestical Imperial, but looks like a toddler.

That Which Grants that Which is Dead

An evil daisy (a Philadelphia fleabane, to be exact) that blooms only one time in several years at a random place in Mugenri. Every time it blooms, it was quickly disposed off by Tsurubami, because it can be used for malicious uses and the Harujion needs to absorb the vital energy from all living beings around it to be able to grow up. Because Tsurubami isn't there when in blooms again during Reactivate Majestical Imperial, it blooms freely and the amount of spirits it absorbed created a physical body, thus Shion was born.

  • Eldritch Abomination: What else can you call something that needs to absorb the vital energy from all living beings around it to be able to grow up and can be used to create drugs to ressurrect the fallen ones or to reach immortality.
  • Expy: Of the Saigyou Ayakashi, as both are a type of youkai plant that can absorb a kind or energy that's dangerous for humans.
  • Man-Eating Plant: Or Soul-Eating Plant, that is.

     Tenkai Zuifeng
One of the Old Dictators
Tenkai Zuifeng

An apprentice of the barrier builders from Azumaterasu in the Outside World. They have the power to produce barriers, shared by Yabusame, but due to a better work ethic they can use it far more effectively. They're also Tsurubami's best friend and ally. Now that the priest is on vacations, their rule has collapsed so Tenkai wants to put everything into its former order.

  • All of the Other Reindeer: Despite being a Teen Genius who can easily build barriers, their Azumaterasu superiors are jealous of their talent and put them to work hard on to attack their prestige. And they're despised by half of Mugenri just for being Tsurubami's friend. No wonder why Tenkai prefers Mugenri to the Outside World.
  • Barrier Warrior: Excellent at creating barriers for various purposes and blocking attacks. Repairing them is another thing...
  • Bash Brothers: With Tsurubami. In fact, they're the original heroes of Mugenri.
  • Characterization Marches On: In Reactivate Majestical Imperial, Tenkai is a Jerkass Smug Snake, but in Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle, they're the Only Sane Man who's devoted to protect Mugenri due to their Undying Loyalty towards Tsurubami.
    • Justified, since in Reactivate Majestical Imperial, it's shown that Tenkai doesn't like the outsider humans. And likes to bully the Adagumo siblings for their straightforwardness.
  • Childhood Friends: With Tsurubami, as their families have been said to be on good terms with each other, so they've often hung out as kids. This also may or may not explain Tenkai's Undying Loyalty.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Their hair and eyes are the same orange color.
  • The Dreaded: Tsurubami is despised and feared around Mugenri for being a ruthless youkai exterminator who ruled over human and youkai. Tenkai is hated to a lesser extent, simply for being Tsurubami's right hand.
  • Evil Counterpart: Arguable case with Yabusame, as Tenkai can also manipulate dimensions, although their ability may be restricted to barriers. The "evil" part is also debatable.
  • Fantastic Racism: Towards Mugenri-outsiders.
    • Jerkass Has a Point: Considering that Yabusame and Tsubakura do more damage to Mugenri with their actions, Tenkai may be right about distrusting them.
  • Impossibly Tacky Clothes: Always wears bright green-yellow clothes. No wonder why everyone compares Tenkai to a walking melon.
  • Jerkass: Likes to rub people the wrong way. A trait they probably picked out from Tsurubami.
  • Leitmotif: "Present World Overhaul".
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Lumen accidentally damaged the Mugenri Barrier during their rampage, so Tenkai's superiors asked them to repair it. Offended by being forced to do a menial task, they make a hole in the barrier instead, causing that spirits from the Outside World to cross Mugenri. Who would have known that this would provoke the birth of an Eldritch Abomination?
    • It's later revealed that Tenkai didn't do it out of pettiness, but rather to lure Tsubakura and Yabusame to them, in order to test their capabilities. But it's still a very far-fetched and over the top way to show it.
  • No-Sell: Like all Extra bosses, they're unaffected by Bombs.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: With Yaorochi. Tenkai taunts them for struggling and failing to revive the Tasouken in RMI, prodding Yaorochi into a rage. They appear to still dislike each other in BPoHC
  • Tranquil Fury: In the Preschool team Extra + a scenario, when Suzumi takes Tsurubami's appearance to fight them, the realization that Suzumi actually was Tsurubami leads Tenkai straight into this trope, calmly stating that they'll thoroughly kill Suzumi for what they've done.
  • Undying Loyalty: Towards Tsurubami, even when they doesn't know what the other is thinking. On the other hand, in Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle, Sese and Sukune are highly loyal towards Tenkai, even when they don't necessarily agree with their devotion to Tsurubami.


How well does it match the trope?
