    CPUs and CPU Candidates 

General CPU Tropes

  • Badass Crew: Each one of the Goddesses is very powerful on her own, but when they fight together, they become nearly unstoppable.
  • Badass in Distress: Also overlaps with Trauma Conga Line. The CPUs, despite their fighting prowess, get defeated and replaced by the Gold Third, become powerless against Affimojas, and get stuck in dreams created by Kurome. Luckily, they get saved by the Candidates and later Gold Third, who are badasses in their own right.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: All CPUs have a power symbol in their eyes when in HDD.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble:
    • Neptune is Sanguine, being the most outgoing and cheerful of the four.
    • Noire is Melancholic, being solitary and prone to hide her feelings.
    • Blanc is Choleric, being the quickest to anger.
    • Vert is Phlegmatic, being the voice of reason in the group and generally the nicest.
  • Magical Girl Warrior: All CPUs have elements of these.
  • Moe Anthropomorphism: Of various consoles and handhelds.
  • Physical Goddess: Downplayed. The whole "live in Celestia" plot point hasn't really been a thing for a while now, so all the Goddesses are all physical beings.
  • Really 700 Years Old: They've been around for quite a long time, but have only recently started to get along with each other. Their exact ages aren't stated, although this game reveals that Neptune and Nepgear, at least, are less than a human lifetime old, as a Muggle who was a young boy during Uzume's rule is still alive, albeit as an old man.
  • Rightful King Returns: The main goal for Neptune, Noire, Blanc, and Vert in Hyperdimension G story arc is to reclaim their rightful place as their nations' leaders.
  • True Companions
  • The Worf Effect: Neptune, Noire, Blanc, and Vert are easily defeated by Gold Third during the beginning of Hyperdimension G.
    • Worf Had the Flu: For most of the arc, they're running low on Share Energy, due to slander from the @GeneralSummarySite, the aforementioned Curb-Stomp Battle courtesy of Gold Third (who were total strangers to the audience), and then Kurome's Cosmic Retcon erasing most peoples' memories of them.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: All four will find a chance to bicker at one another, but all four will also defend one another if someone decides to mess with one of them.

Neptune (Purple Heart/NEXT Purple)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_01___neptune.jpg

"No matter what happens, we'll make it through with my protag ruleset!"
Voiced by: Rie Tanaka (Japanese), Melissa Fahn (English)

Planeptune's CPU and the self-proclaimed "Protagonist of Protagonists". She's usually bright and positive in human form. During the beginning of the story, she gets thrown into the Zerodimension alongside her little sister Nepgear without a chance to do anything. She has a certain appeal that manages to destroy any adversity or serious situation. Her only problem is that she's rarely called by her proper name. As Purple Heart, she's more calm and collected, although she retains her carefree personality.


  • All-Loving Hero: Like her Re;Birth 1 incarnation, she defaults to this since she befriended Uzume, is friendly towards Noire and loves Nepgear. She also easily makes friends with B-Sha too.
  • Ambiguously Bi: On one hand, as Purple Heart, she really liked those porno rags that Steamax scattered one time (which, presumably, were intended for straight men). On the other hand, she (as Purple Heart) flirts with Steamax afterwards.
  • Attack Hello: Unlike the previous game which she meets her new friend from other dimension by crashing into someone, this is how she and Nepgear meet Uzume for the first time.
  • Badass Adorable: As Neptune. As Purple Heart, she drops some of the "Adorable" for some more "Badass"
  • Big Eater: A classic trait of hers.
  • Big Sister Instinct: In major contrast to her attitude in Victory, Neptune freaks out when Nepgear doesn't return to their dimension with her.
  • Blade Spam: Very present, though not to the same extent as Noire.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: She isn't actually as stupid and ditzy as she may seem. Turns out she's actually really capable of getting work done and has an extremely charismatic personality as well. It's just that she sees no point in working when capable people like Histoire and Nepgear are willing to do the work for her.
  • Character Development: Neptune has not forgotten the lessons she learned over the last two remakes. She's much more open with how much she really values her sister, and doesn't need anywhere near as much prodding to get off her ass and help her nation, even if she does like to make an adventure out of it. It all culminates in her being the one to suggest Nepgear should go and support Vert during the second act, something she'd never consider doing in a previous title (due to taking Vert's comments about stealing Nepgear way too seriously).
  • Chekhov's Gun: Neptune buying a book somehow manages to be the key factor for the creation of Gold Third.
  • Covert Pervert: Her normally-serious Purple Heart persona really likes what she sees when Steamax uses one of his "jutsu" to scatter porno rags all around the place.
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: After Histoire overheats from transporting her back from the Zerodimension, Neptune finds a Sanshiro's Soulful Patch and comes to the conclusion that Histy needs to swallow it. IF and Compa are skeptical, but when it actually works, they suggest that Planeptune's first CPU who created Histoire may have been pretty similar to Neptune.
  • Death or Glory Attack: Dimensional Slice is a gamble to use. If it hits, it will deal a lot of damage but if it misses, it reverts her back to her human form. While all of the CPUs have this problem, it's even more significant for Neptune as Dimensional Slice only does one hit.
  • Decoy Protagonist: Although she's the protagonist for the first half of the Z-Dimension Arc and one of the four protagonists of the four arcs of Gold Third, by the Heart Dimension Arc, her role is reduced to a side character and the spotlight goes towards Uzume and the other Neptune. She's not happy about the revelation.
    Neptune: This is protagonist fraud at this point! I'll take this to court! I'll sue and I'll win!
  • Does Not Like Spam: As usual, eggplants are her mortal enemy.
  • Dual Wielding: Briefly in her Combination Attack with the other Neptune where she grabs one of the 32X blades she fires and starts using it alongside her equipped sword.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: The other CPUs are forced to concede that Neptune actually came up with a few good ideas for handling their issues. Though to be fair Neptune's stupidity has always been more of an Informed Flaw coming from the other characters insults. There's been plenty of evidence in the previous games as well as this one to suggest otherwise.
  • Genki Girl: In her human form.
  • Graceful Loser: She is surprisingly not bitter at all with B-Sha for taking control of Planeptune.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Her Brainwashed and Crazy state implies that she's bitter over Nepgear being seen as the more capable sister despite being younger, though she definitely wouldn't be so hostile over it if not for Kurome's negative energy.
  • Happy Place: Nepgear and her close friends from Planeptune manage to get a glimpse at her ideal world. Turns out Neptune's ideal of happiness isn't her own, but the happiness of others. And her dream world isn't different from her current one, so her only desire is to keep living out her peaceful days. IF is understandably confused considering her normal behavior.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: As usual, she uses Katanas, Broadswords, and Laser Blades. Ultimately, many will see that Katanas Are Just Better; turns come up sooner and Purple Heart (even as NEXT Purple) only uses katanas, regardless of what she had equipped as Neptune.
  • Iaijutsu Practitioner: Her Death or Glory Limit Break Dimensional Slice in her Next Form has her do this stance before delivering a Single-Stroke Battle.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She is still quite fond of sniping at the other characters with her pretty brutal wit, not to mention she still has a habit of trivializing everything. Having said that, she is still well meaning at heart and very loyal to her friends. And despite how little we see her actually doing her job as a CPU, this game makes it very clear that she cares a great deal about the people of her nation.
  • Lady of War: Her Purple Heart and NEXT Purple personality.
  • Mundane Utility: Somehow manages to figure how that using HDD burns a lot of calories so she transforms a lot just to lose weight.
  • Odd Friendship: Once again with Blanc, with the two rarely going at it like the other CPUs tend to. Her friendship with Uzume could also count since their personalities also differ quite a great deal yet the two get along swimmingly, although it's not at the same level as she does with Plutia in Victory.
  • Pet the Dog: She loves and cares for her friends and little sister very much. She's also willing to protect her nation.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Once again, stat wise she is one of the heavier hitters in the game.
  • Put on the Bus: Very briefly for a period during the first Arc, most likely in order to give Z-Dimension Neptune the spotlight.
  • Samurai: As if her using katanas didn't give it away, her most powerful attack, Dimensional Slice, has her using iaijutsu with her Next Form katana and delivers a Single-Stroke Battle towards the enemy.
  • Storm of Blades: While she had a bit of this in the previous games, her special attacks seem to have reached almost Gate of Babylon levels.
  • The Glomp: Does this towards Noire and Blanc when the four routes of Gold Third arc converge. Noire's all Tsundere about it while in Blanc's case, she's just wondering what spurred Neptune to do it.
  • The High Queen: As her ideal world created from her deepest desires proves, for all her flaws and mistakes, all Neptune really wants is not her own happiness, but the happiness of her own subjects. She may not like the paperwork and formality part of her job and often makes excuses to avoid it, but she takes her subjects’s well-being and her duty to protect them as their Goddess quite seriously.
  • The Tease: Indulged in this a bit as Purple Heart when messing with Steamax.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Compared to her behavior in Victory, Neptune has mellowed out quite a bit, and her jabs aren't as insensitive as they were before.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: As per usual with Noire, though the two tone it down a great deal in this game, to the point where it's mostly just Noire trying to deny the fact that they are friends.

Noire (Black Heart/NEXT Black)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_02___noire.jpg

"W-What do you mean by that?! It's not like I'd be lonely at all if you never came back!"
Voiced by: Asami Imai (Japanese), Erin Fitzgerald (English, VII), Erica Mendez (English, VIIR)

Lastation's CPU. A tsundere who doesn't want to admit her feelings to the people close to her due to her standoffish personality. Because of that, Neptune constantly teases her by calling her "loner". Behind her hardworking and strict personality, she is an Otaku who likes cosplaying and making costumes. As Black Heart, she's become more confident and aggressive. However, her main personality still unchanged.


Blanc (White Heart/NEXT White)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_03___blanc.jpg

"This level of planning is easy for an intelligence-type CPU like me."
Voiced by: Kana Asumi (Japanese), Wendee Lee (English)

Lowee's CPU. At first glance, she seems calm and quiet, but when she loses her temper, she tends to become out of control. She likes reading, and she claims that she's the most intelligent and knowledgeable of the four goddesses. She puts her short stories on sale in incognito, but those books don't sell at all for some reason. Despite being constantly bullied by Rom and Ram, they have a close relationship. As White Heart, her attitude and speech towards others become ferocious.


  • A-Cup Angst: As usual, this is her major Berserk Button when someone points out her flat chest. Just look at her reaction when she sees Dark White for the first time.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Is called "Blanny" (Blanc-chan in Japanese) by C-Sha and the rest of the Guild during her arc in Lowee. She initially doesn't like it, but it eventually sticks.
  • An Axe to Grind: Her hammer turns into an axe when she becomes White Heart and NEXT White.
  • Anger Born of Worry: She's angry when she finally finds Rom and Ram again after they were attacked by monsters, but it's mostly because she was worried sick and was driving herself crazy trying to find them.
  • Badass Adorable
    • Badass Bookworm: She references reading a lot, and has even written some embarrassing novels in her spare time.
  • Beat the Curse Out of Him: What the final battle between her and C-Sha comes to. C-Sha's been possessed by Kurome and Blanc and her sisters need to beat the sense back into her.
  • BFG: She uses one in NEXT Form when unleashing Blaster Controller EXE Drive.
  • Drop the Hammer: Blanc's main weapon is a hammer.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: She dislikes C-Sha calling her "Blanny" and their team the "Golden Pair", though she warms to both over time. The Nepstation at the end of the G arc has Neptune teasingly using the former over and over again until Blanc threatens to [word banned on Nepstation] her if she doesn't shut up.
  • Expy: Blanc is pretty much a white Vita.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The responsible to Ram's foolish and Rom's in-between. She's shown to be worried about her little sisters whenever they're wandering off.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Don't let her calm exterior fool you, she gets angry quite easily.
  • Happy Place: Unsurprisingly, her idea of happiness involves having a large pair of breasts. Rom and Ram's reaction is less than amused, thanks to Blanc being a bit of a prick about it.
  • Hypocrite: C-Sha notes she doesn't have much of a right to be angry with Rom and Ram becoming Hunters to find her when she did the exact same thing for them. Downplayed though, since it's clear Blanc is really just concerned about them.
  • Meaningful Name: "Blanc" means "white" in French.
  • Mighty Glacier / Glass Cannon: While she still has the best defense against physical attacks and the worst mobility as in previous games, she now also has the physical offensive stat to bootnote . However, this comes at a severe cost to magical offensive and defensive capabilities, as well as mobility. note 
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Being an Unwitting Pawn and having a new friend think you're a traitor tends to do that. She planned to break into the Basilicom with Rom and Ram to get C-Sha out as penance, but she had to scrap that when the monsters started attacking and leave it to Financier.
  • Odd Friendship: Much like the previous games, she and Neptune get along quite well despite the large contrast in their personalities. She also develops a similar, if more one-sided virtolic on her end, with C-Sha.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: As White Heart and NEXT White.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: She's the most foul-mouthed of the Goddesses in either human or CPU form. While she can usually keep a lid on it as a human, once she turns White Heart the swears go flying.
  • Talk to the Fist: When she finally has enough of Azna=Leb's talking, she decks him in the face. She also does it to the possessed C-Sha to snap her out of it.
  • Unwitting Pawn: She's used by a Lowee Corrupt Politician to reveal C-Sha is the source of the fog that empowering monsters around the nation and get her captured by the Revolutionary Army. She is pissed when she finds out.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Becomes this with C-Sha, though the vitriol is entirely from her own end.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Due to her abysmal magic defense, magic attack drops her very quick. This makes the start of her chapter a bit like Luck-Based Mission.

Vert (Green Heart/NEXT Green)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_04___vert.jpg

"As a CPU, I must properly perform my duties."
Voiced by: Rina Sato (Japanese), Carrie Keranen (English)

Leanbox's CPU. On the outside she may seem to be gentle with an elder sister-like personality. But in reality, she happens to be a gamer chick with her private room filled with a massive amount of games and merchandise (especially yaoi figures and posters). She is extremely confident of herself and isn't above making a big deal out of her large breasts. Despite the fact that she doesn't have a younger sister, she acts like an older sister towards the CPU Candidates; with Nepgear in particular. As Green Heart, her personality doesn't change too much, although she mercilessly punishes anyone who opposes her.


  • Berserk Button: Alongside with "fatigue system" in previous games, she gains a new one here.
    Vert: That kind of cheat item is... most cowardly...
  • Big-Breast Pride: As in previous games, she's really proud of her rack. She had absolutely no problem with Adult Neptune copping a feel in the spa and was in fact proud when she complimented them.
  • Blade on a Stick: Her Weapon of Choice in all forms.
  • Boobs-and-Butt Pose: One of her victory poses in HDD and Next Form.
  • Character Narrator: She fills this role for her prologue in Hyperdimension Neptunia G.
  • Comedic Lolicon: There are several scenes that show her interest in the candidates, including Rom and Ram, isn't exactly platonic.
    Vert: I can't stand this slightly immoral feeling exuding from those immature, soft bodies wrapped in those naughty, adult costumes!
  • Cool Big Sis: Towards the Candidates, especially Nepgear.
  • Gamer Chick: The most hardcore gamer of the original four goddesses, and that's saying something.
  • The Generic Girl: She's pretty much the most normal of the CPUs.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: The most diplomatic of the four goddesses, though she also tends to be the one who provokes the others the most.
  • Happy Place: Her idea of happiness? Having siblings, as she is the only Hyperdimension CPU who doesn't have siblings since Microsoft has never made a handheld console to complement the Xbox family and compete with the Vita and 3DS. Additionally, her dream siblings are actually younger versions of herself, to the point where they're also named Vert. This shows that she also wants the experience of being a younger sibling and helps to explain her fixation on Nepgear, who takes traits associated with both younger and older siblings as the situations with Neptune demand, since she usually takes the older sister role among the CPUs. It's also worth noting that her two hypothetical sisters look an awful lot like younger, blonde versions of Noire and Blanc, at least in terms of clothing.
  • Horned Humanoid: As NEXT Green, she gains a unicorn-like horn on her forehead.
  • Meaningful Name: "Vert" means "green" in French.
  • Nose Bleed: Definitely indulged in this when seeing the Steamax x Affimojas ship.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: Her moments of extreme clinginess for Nepgear, trying to claim her as her own little sister, come out of nowhere. Anyone who recognizes the reference should also recognize this is her Ultradimension counterpart's personality quirk and Hyper Vert has never shown this behavior in the past. Though it may be a nod to her ending in Mk 2, where she considers adopting Nepgear as a sister.
  • Phenotype Stereotype: Blonde-haired, blue-eyed, busty American.
  • Pop-Cultured Badass: Is an hardcore otaku gamer, while also being a powerful fighter.
  • Shipper on Deck: For Affimojas and Steamax, ironically considering Affimojas himself is a Shipper on Deck for Steamax getting with Uni.
  • Skewed Priorities: After Gameindustri's rewrite, one of her first actions was making sure her games' save files were intact. Later, Nepgear is appalled when she requests a bunch of games as a reward for capturing the Demon King instead of asking for her nation back.
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: She claims her wish to S-Sha to order her every single game in Gameindustri complete with pre-order DLC was just her idea of a joke when Nepgear reminds her she was supposed to use it to take back Leanbox while nervously playing it off.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Considerably more willing to bully Blanc at every opportunity she can find.
  • Underboobs: Played entirely straight in HDD, but averted in human and NEXT Form.
  • Yaoi Fangirl: She very much appreciates the implications of Steamax and Affimojas' deep friendship.

Uzume Tennouboshi/Orange Heart

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_05___uzume.jpg

"I don't expect you to get it, but I'm gonna fight this giant, one-on-one! If you wanna leave, then just go, but I'm staying right here."
Voiced by: Mariko Honda (Japanese), Erica Lindbeck (English)

The new main character in this installment, she fights alone in the collapsing Zerodimension. Despite her blunt personality, deep down, she is loyal and passionate. She also bears a strong sense of duty as a CPU and she risks her life in order to protect the residents of Zero Dimension who are barely surviving as it is. Her fighting spirit and devotion to her people is almost unparalleled. On the other hand, her habit of intense daydreaming reveals she has a more girlish side to her beneath the surface. As Orange Heart, her lively and gruff personality completely reverses, showing an adorably cheerful temperament in this form. Calling her enemies "doggies" and dancing to the beat of her own drum might make her seem lacking in ardor or urgency during battles, but she is always earnest and ready to fight for her people.

She's actually the former CPU of Planeptune, only her existence is rejected by her own people. However, thanks to a volunteer working for Planeptune's Basilicom, her people start to reconsider their opinion and decided to give her an unrelenting support, although for a short period of time. She decides to seal herself after her delusional power seems out of control, thus her role is superseded by Uranusnote  and later, Neptune.


  • Achilles' Heel: The Swirl Console, her true body after being sealed, as well as the giant Share Crystal that makes up the core of Heartdimension. Destroying either of them will kill both her and Kurome, which happens in the normal ending of the game. This no longer applies after her resurrection in the Golden Ending.
  • Amnesiac God: Although with a little bit of Angel Unaware. Much like Neptune in the first game and its remake, when she hears Histoire's name and witnesses Neptune and Nepgear's transformation as Purple Heart and Purple Sister respectively, she remembers something related to Planeptune. It turns out she used to be the CPU of the aforementioned nation all along, courtesy of her original counterpart's explanation.
  • Back from the Dead: After her Heroic Sacrifice, the Revival Ending has everyone unseal and revive her original body to bring her back to the Hyperdimension. She first must engage Kurome in a Mirror Match, culminating in the two seemingly merging back into a single entity, with Uzume fortunately in control.
  • Badass Adorable: Becomes more of this when she's in Orange Heart, her CPU persona.
  • Breast Expansion: She goes up a few cup sizes when she transforms into Orange Heart.
  • Childlike Voice: While fantasizing or transformed into Orange Heart, her tone goes up quite high, accompanied by Third-Person Person as a sign of immaturity.
  • Contralto of Danger: In the English dub she is given quite the hoarse and deep voice in contrast to the other goddesses. It also serves as a powerful contrast to Kurome's calm and mild voice.
  • Contrasting Sequel Main Character:
    • Plutia is gentle but difficult to understand, making friends very easily, always skipping her duties as CPU, calm but ditzy with a little sadistic streak, and tends to go overboard when showcasing her somewhat twisted sense of humor. Uzume on the other hand, is mannish, blunt and hotheaded, but selfless and loyal. She also cares very deeply for her friends and rarely speaks ill of them, and unlike the other Planeptune goddesses she is also very diligent about her work. It also helps that she used to be Planeptune's CPU.
    • In HDD form, Iris Heart is a Heroic Comedic Sociopath and a notorious sadistic, scaremongering dominatrix who indiscriminately and mercilessly frightens anyone else, friend or foe alike. Orange Heart (unlike any other CPU in the series) is soft, bubbly and childish.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Red hair and eyes in her normal form.
  • Diving Kick: During her Dream Roar attack, she begins with a drop kick before shattering the ground with a powerful scream.
  • Does Not Like Spam: One of the side events reveals that she doesn't like shiitake mushrooms. Nepgear eventually learns to prepare them in such a way that she can eat them.
  • Enemy Without: Inverted. She's actually the conscience of the original Uzume given physical form.
  • Face Death with Dignity: She doesn't hesitate to convince Nepgear to destroy the Heartdimension's main Share Crsytal to save Gameindustri, even knowing that it will kill her. This serves in contrast to Kurome, who is bewildered that she can still smile and entrust the world to the CPUs when she's about to die in the Ascension Ending, and flies into a screaming rage in the Revival Ending when Uzume casually says that they're both about to die along with their sealed body.
  • Fiery Redhead: Her normal form has red hair, and she's (usually) strong-willed and loud-mouthed.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Mostly towards Baby Bugs and Dogoos, as they helped her to find a Share Crystal so she can be a CPU.
  • Grenade Spam: When "The Umio Heaven" is used, Uzume summons 5 Umio missiles that drops multiple bombs. After using up all their explosive payloads, they will charge toward their target and cause a bigger explosive in the background with Uzume saluting.
  • Had to Be Sharp: According to Umio, her "Daydream Theater"/Orange Heart personality is her true self, but she developed the Tomboyish Voiced Ore Onna persona to be strong for everyone in the Zerodimension.
  • Heroic BSoD: The revelation of her Dark and Troubled Past, as well as learning that she can't defeat Kurome without killing herself, hits her so hard that she runs off alone, just wanting to curl up and die. After Umio helps her regain her composure, she's humiliated that everyone saw her cry.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: As a last resort to foiling Kurome's vengeance, she convinces Nepgear to shoot her Share Crystal, putting an end to them both. However, she gets revived in the Golden Ending.
  • Hot-Blooded: What's the first thing she does when she meets Neptune? She immediately charges in for a fight, all the while complimenting Neptune for giving her a run for her money even though she thinks she's an enemy.
  • I Choose to Stay: When Neptune asks her near the end of the first arc whether or not she wants to leave the Zerodimension and live with her in the main dimension's Planeptune, this is her response. Justified as her wish is to rebuild her dimension rather than escape to a new one, and apparently having everybody cross over was impossible at that point.
  • Iconic Item: The Visual Radio that she wears on her wrist. It's so iconic that it's used when resurrecting Uzume because it acts as proof that she existed along everyone else.
  • Improbable Weapon User: She uses a megaphone as her Weapon of Choice.
  • Kindness Button: She loves being called "cool" (Umio explains that she equates it to being called reliable), and can be convinced to do things she otherwise wouldn't by saying it make her cool, or uncool if she refused.
  • Living on Borrowed Time: During the Revival/True End route. She reveals before the final battle that Neptune and Nepgear destroying the crystal in Heart Dimension actually did kill her real body. She's just sticking around thanks to her remaining share reserves so they can beat Kurome for good.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Most of her attacks are sound-based.
  • Meaningful Name: Tennoboushi (天王星) or Emperor Star, is the Japanese name for the planet Uranus. "Uzu" is also the Japanese word for "swirl", referencing the Dreamcast logo.
  • Ms. Imagination: She has a habit of letting her imagination get the better of her as she goes off on fantastical tangents...often with others in hearing distance.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Certain phenomena will occur in her favor when she most needs them, like the Zerodimension monsters suddenly becoming capable of giving her Share Energy. This is because of her delusion power.
  • Ore Onna: In the original Japanese, she refers to herself with the very masculine "ore" pronoun........unless she slips into her Orange Heart persona and starts invoking Third-Person Person, which is a sign of immaturity.
  • Out of Focus: Completely absent from the Hyperdimension G arc.
  • Punched Across the Room: Uzume finishes off her opponents with powerful punch that sends them flying after pummeling them with a series of Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs during her Dream Combo attack.
  • The Nicknamer: Nearly everyone she meets gets some sort of nickname from her. She calls Neptune and Nepgear as "Nepcchi" and "Geacchi" respectively (Nepsy and Gearsy in the dub). As Orange Heart, she calls her enemies as "Doggie". When she meets Arfoire, she calls her "purple granny." Upon seeing Uni late in the game, Uzume calls her "Unisy". MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies has her interact with, and nickname, the other CPUs and makers: Noiresy, Blancsy, Romsy, Ramsy, Vertsy, Plutsy, Denksy, Famsy, Tamsy... Notice a pattern?
  • Pocket Dimension: She can create a "Sharing Field", using concentrated Share Energy to form a new space that can trap opponents, which proves essential for fighting the Dark CPUs, and especially Kurome's Dark Orange form.
  • The Pollyanna: As Orange Heart, though she occasionally slips into this in her normal form.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: A few of her attacks plus her Limit Break incorporates this. She'll even shout "ORA!" in some of them.
  • Reality Warper: Unlike any CPU in the series, she possesses a unique power capable of turning her daydreams into reality. She subconsciously imagines things to become reality, and although it has its limits, her power can create things and arrange events to happen in her favor. It is unable to actually affect fundamental aspects of reality though, such as interdimensional travel. As it turns out, the reason her power is so potent to begin with is because Zerodimension is quite literally her dream world given form. As demonstrated by her original self, Uzume's power functions differently inside the actual Gamindustri.
  • Shower Shy: She's hesitant to take a bath with Neptune and Nepgear, but it's totally not because she's been taking baths on her own for so long that she's never exposed herself to others.
  • Split-Personality Merge: During her Mirror Match with Kurome in the Revival Ending, Umio encourages her to accept her other self's hatred as a part of herself, which she proclaims to have done after reviving, heavily implying that they have returned to a single entity.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: She plays more or less the similar role as Plutia in Victory, though their personalities and actual importance to the plot differ greatly.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: During the 8-bit retelling of the story during the credits, she ultimately forgives Kurome and thanks her for making her strong and letting her meet her friends, before Kurome vanishes in a flash of light.
  • This Is a Drill: When she uses Dream Smash Fist, Uzume manifests share energy around her right fist in the shape of a drill and punches through her enemies.
  • Third-Person Person: As Orange Heart. Uzume sometimes slips into this herself, intentionally or otherwise.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: In Heartdimension H, she finds out that she used to be a CPU for Planeptune... except she was shunned and forgotten by her people. She doesn't take the revelations very well, especially after she learns that she's not the real Uzume. She is in fact the good conscience of the real Uzume personified.

Nepgear/Purple Sister

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_06___nepgear.jpg

"...Gearsy. Gearsy, huh...? Hehe, this might be the first time I've been given such a cute nickname..."
Voiced by: Yui Horie (Japanese), Christine Marie Cabanos (English)

Planeptune's CPU Candidate, Neptune's younger sister and the main character of a previous game. A mecha Otaku who loves machinery, she is dependable person and often mistaken for the *older* sister. Unlike Neptune who forcibly pulls in everyone around her, Nepgear is the type of girl who supports the ones around her. As Purple Sister, with her signature Multi Purpose Beam Launcher, she's a Jack-of-All-Trades party member who can both fight in battle and support others from the back. Her personality, however, remains the same as her human form.


  • Ambiguously Gay: Her interactions with Uni point toward this. Becomes a lot less ambiguous when the two confess to each other in MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies although they try to deny when Blanc catches them in the act. To be fair, the two were delirious due to non-stop video editing when they confess in that game.
  • Attack Drone: She gets two funnel like drones in one of her new Special Attacks.
  • Badass Adorable
  • Beam Spam: Courtesy of the previously mentioned drones.
  • Character Development: Get a fair bit of it during the first third of the game, where she shares the spotlight a lot of time time. Lampshaded near the start of Neptune's G Dimension chapter when she agrees to her sister's request to go help Vert in Leanbox, despite having just reunited with Neptune, showing herself to be much more independent.
  • Characterization Marches On: As a combination of not forgetting her Aesops and actually being a character rather than a punching bag this time around, Nepgear is much more rounded and fleshed-out than most of her previous portrayals.
  • Character Narrator: She occasionally narrates events, like during the beginning of Hyperdimension Neptunia G and the bad end of Heartdimension Neptunia H, as well the Nirvana Ending of the same story.
  • Chick Magnet: Largely in gameplay rather than story; most likely in a call back to the game she starred in. One of her passive abilities allows her to gain Lily Ranks with the other girls much more quickly than normal.
  • Dub-Induced Plot Hole: When Uzume calls her 'Giacchi/Gearsy', Nepgear claims that it's the first time anyone has ever given her a nickname. However, the English dub has already featured multiple characters giving her nicknames, such as Neptune ('Nep Jr.'), Compa ('Ge-Ge'), IF ('Gear'), and Plutia ('Neppy Jr.').
  • Et Tu, Brute?: She's not too happy about having to fight Big Nep in Vert's arc, but she at least wasn't very antagonistic and lets them go on a whim. What really hits her is "Uzume" summoning Dark Purple and kidnapping the CPUs early in the H Arc, to the point that she's not sure how to face her when they return to the Zerodimension. Fortunately, the Uzume she befriended and the "Uzume" responsible weren't the same person.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: In full force here; she improves Uzume's wrist radio, fixes a transporter and gives it interdimensional capability, improves the candidates' contact devices to allow for further reach, and more.
  • Humongous Mecha: When using her "Nepgeardam" SP Skill, she summons a mech resembling Plutia's Retro Robo plushie (the same one that Plutia gives to Nepgear during an outtake to one of the episodes in the anime).
  • Mix-and-Match Weapon: As Purple Sister, she wields a beam rifle with an under-mounted beam saber.
  • Nice Girl: Lost a lot of the edge she gained in Victory. It helps that she isn't the main Butt-Monkey anymore.
  • Playful Hacker: Has developed some cracking skills to go along with being a gearhead.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Still quite a good damage dealer, much like her sister.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: While Purple Heart has a black-dominant costume, Purple Sister has a white dominant costume.
  • The Ace: She is more mature and responsible, a wild contrast to Neptune lazy and sometimes uncaring behaviour.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: In this game, she lost her Butt-Monkey status from Victory altogether where she was treated much better here.
  • Wave-Motion Gun: Her Beam Rifle as Purple Sister.
  • Wrench Wench: Her hobby of playing with technology is more apparent than in previous games.

Uni/Black Sister

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_07___uni.jpg

"See you later, Neptune. Please take care of Nepgear."
Voiced by: Eri Kitamura (Japanese), Sarah Williams (English)

Lastation's CPU Candidate and Noire's younger sister. A military Otaku who loves firearms more than anyone else. As Black Sister, her personality become strong and belligerent. While the other CPU and CPU Candidates usually have a small increase in bust size when transforming, Uni's chest somehow shrinks rather noticeably. She claims that they become "light-weight" so they won't get in the way of shooting her gun, but internally she's very bothered by it. Rom and Ram secretly call her their "flat buddy".


  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: The sheer amount of yuri subtext between her and Nepgear is mind-bogglingly unbelievable.
    • Despite being easily annoyed with Steammax's perverted tendencies, especially once she realizes that he has a crush on her, Uni really does seem to enjoy his company and gives him pep talks, even after she realizes he's in cahoots with Affimojas. She also (begrudgingly) admits that she's rather touched by the revelation he likes her, since apparently no one's ever said something like that to her before.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Her interactions with Nepgear hints at this although it becomes a lot less ambiguous when she and Nepgear confess to each other in MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies although they then both try to deny it when Blanc catches them in the act. At the same time, there's also her reaction to realizing Steammax has a crush on her and her noticeable lack of any attempt to really dissuade it.
  • Badass Adorable: Looks like a young teen, but walks around with a BFG and is the more ruthless one between herself and Noire, fully willing to go in guns blazing when needed.
  • BFG: Her weapon of choice.
  • Beam Spam: One of her new moves converts one of her huge beams into a wave of smaller beams.
  • Big "WHAT?!": Her reaction upon K-Sha pulling a gun on her.
  • Contralto of Danger: Like her sister, HDD gives a deeper voice compared to previous games.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Much like her sister.
  • Good Is Not Soft:
    • She's normally very polite and kind towards others, with certain exceptions. She's also typically among the first to suggest using violence to solve the group's problems whenever a more peaceful method isn't readily available. Noire's arc also shows this to be a significant difference between Noire and Uni, as Noire has to specifically tell Uni not to attack the citizens, and Uni later admits to herself that she likely wouldn't have gone out of her way to save the citizens as Noire did. At least one of her combo moves notes that firing high explosive shells at people would normally be looked down upon, but in the same description notes that since it's Uni, that doesn't apply.
    • Uzume speculates that Uni was more than willing to gun her down on the spot since neither of them could imagine Nepgear being able to bring herself to attack her even if she did turn out to have kidnapped the CPUs.
  • Gun Nut: Uni loves her rifles. She actually bonds with K-Sha over this.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: She shoves her sister out of range for a gas containing a Synthetic Plague, while inhaling it herself and almost dying. Fortunately, K-Sha suppresses her Yandere obsession long enough to save Uni rather than let her die to have Noire for herself.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Irritated as she is when Nepgear was crying about Neptune, Noire, Blanc and Vert getting kidnapped and that Uzume turned into Kurome, she does have a right to tell Nepgear to get a grip and snap out of it.
  • Mega Twintails: In HDD form as Black Sister.
  • Nice Girl: Despite her Tsundere appearance, she's a laid-back, polite and level-headed girl who will help out her friends when they're having problems. She matures into this later on in the game, especially towards Nepgear. She's also this during Noire's route when she comforts K-Sha for feeling bad about being horrible to her.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Considering Nepgear past ordeals, plus her newfound friendship with Uzume, one could expect to Uni to be more understanding about her friend situation, instead, she chews her out and tells her to just get over with, granted, the situation demands it, but still, her attitude was quite insensitive.
  • Small Girl, Big Gun: While the rifles she carries around in her normal form are sized appropriately for her, while in HDD form, her gun towers over her.
  • Tsundere: Not as much as her sister, but she tends to show this tendency towards Nepgear. She also becomes this towards Steamax after learning of his fetishes and when he stalks her.
  • Wave-Motion Gun: Her rifle seems to switch between regular bullets and large beams of energy.

Rom/White Sister

"I'm going to go after Nepgear. I want to give her strength."
Voiced by: Yui Ogura (Japanese), Carrie Keranen (English)

Lowee's CPU Candidate and one of Blanc's younger sisters. Despite being older than Ram she is insecure, shy and timid. She has a habit of speaking the emotions she's experiencing - the people of Lowee say this makes her more adorable, and they give her a great amount of support. As White Sister, her timid personality disappears and she becomes more forward, clearly articulating what she wants to say.


Ram/White Sister

"Yeah, of course! Blanc isn't any villain, she's an ally of justice!"
Voiced by: Kaori Ishihara (Japanese), Shelby Lindley (English)

Lowee's CPU Candidate and the other one of Blanc's younger sisters. In contrast with Rom, she is lively but mischievous, always dragging around her sister. When she was much younger, she used to stick to Rom closely and avoid other people altogether. These days, she pulls pranks on others no matter who they are. The people of Lowee find such a rambunctious and mischievous girl cute, and they give her their unrelenting support. As White Sister, her personality is unchanged, but she's calmed down slightly and shows a stronger sense of responsibility.


  • Badass Adorable: Like Rom, she is a very powerful magic-based party member. Unlike her however, she forgoes most healing and support skills in favor of focusing purely on offense.note 
  • Black Magician Girl: Much like Rom, she possesses magic of every element, with a focus on ice, wind fire and lightning, as well light and darkness. Her spells also hit significantly harder, which is to be expected of a specialized black mage.
  • Cheerful Child: Due to her energetic nature, she defaults to this.
  • Divergent Character Evolution: From an animation standpoint. Previous games had Ram and Rom sharing the same casting animations for certain shared SP Skills. In this game, Ram gets her own unique animations to distinguish her from her sister.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The foolish to Blanc's responsible and Rom's in-between. She's shown to be energetic, lively and peppy when she and Rom are playing together to the point of annoying Blanc.
  • Genki Girl: Not as much as Neptune, but still energetic enough.
  • Magic Staff: Her weapon of choice in human form.
  • Palette Swap: The White Sisters are identical-looking in all but color (and which hand they use). Downplayed in human form as Ram has longer hair.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Judging by the fact that she wears pink. And that's saying something!
  • Polar Opposite Twins: She tends to be energetic and loud, compared to her sister's tendency to be reserved and quiet.
  • The Pollyanna: She's made into this since she tends to be energetic, upbeat and peppy,
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Rom's blue.

    Makers 

General Maker Tropes

  • Badass Normal: Would be considered super human in any other series. But due to the existence of the CPUs their feats aren't quite as impressive. Still doesn't reduce their awesomeness though.
  • Moe Anthropomorphism: Of video game publishers/developers or video game series.
  • So Last Season: With a similar character concept but packing a Super Mode, Makers have been largely obsoleted by Gold Third, and as a result, most of them have disappeared. IF and Compa are the only survivors of the original Makers, due to Grandfather Clause, having a more versatile skill set, and personifying the series' actual creators.

IF

"Jeez, Nep, what's this racket about? You haven't even been back five minutes and you're making a scene. You should at least come say hi first."
Voiced by: Kana Ueda (Japanese), Kate Higgins (English)

A member of Planeptune's Intelligence Division, as well Neptune and Compa's best friend. As one of the few people around with any common sense, she's often pointing out and chastising the others' shenanigans. She's always worrying over Neptune and Compa's lack of common sense. She's generally very cool and mature, but if she loses her smart phone, she can become restless and overwhelmingly anxious.


Compa

Voiced by: Kanako Sakai (Japanese), Cristina Valenzuela (English)

A clumsy nurse who spends most of time at a hospital in Planeptune, when she's not out on an adventure. She's a very good friends with IF and Neptune. She has a knack for cooking and completing other household duties, so she often comes to the Basilicom to cook meals and help out. She was the first to call Neptune "Nep-Nep". In order to make Neptune eat with a smile, Compa always ends up coddling her.

Million Arthur

Voiced by: Inori Minase (Japanese), Cherami Leigh (English)

A guest character based on Square Enix's iOS/Android-based mobile card game of the same name.


  • Always Save the Girl: She will always rush in to rescue any cute girls without a second thought if she spots any of them in danger. This is also the reason how she and Neptune first met each other.
  • Cards of Power: Other than being fit to wield Excalibur as their weapons, Arthurs also have the ability to use magical cards summoning or casting spells.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: She may be a Knight in Shining Armor with big plans to reform her country for the better, but she's also prone to perverted antics like making a doppelganger harem from the CPUs' elements.
  • Excalibur in the Stone: To qualify as the heir of the throne of Britain, one must be worthy enough to pull an Excalibur sword from the stone or ground. This is how she became an Arther.
  • Magic Knight: While she's an expert in sword play, she also expert in elemental attacks.
  • Power Perversion Potential: She can make obedient and affectionate clones of anyone from her cards as long as she possess any of their elements. She and Vert gladly take advantage of this when bathing with their harem of so called "little sisters" or "knights".

God Eater

Voiced by: Ai Kakuma (Japanese), Faye Mata (English)

A guest character based on Namco Bandai's game with the same name.


  • Big Eater: Easily outlasts Uzume in a chili dog eating contest.
  • Bodyguarding a Badass: Assigned by the Far East Branch of Lastation as Noire's bodyguard.
  • Expy: Her appearance is based on three different female characters of the franchise: Alisa, Ciel and Nana
    • She even has a costume that makes her almost identical to Ciel.
  • Swiss-Army Weapon: Her weapon of choice, which is a fusion of sword, shield, and gun at bare minimum.

nitro+

Voiced by: Sachika Misawa (Japanese), Ryan Bartley(English)

A guest character based on the company of the same name.


  • Badass Boast: Delivers one shortly before joining the party: "Catch a rat, kill a rat. Catch a god, kill a god. The sword does not discriminate."
  • Bayonet Ya: Her Raging Bull revolver has a folding knife bayonet attached that is normally stowed in a crevice under the barrel, and allowing the revolver to be used as a melee weapon during combat.
  • Chainsaw Good: How she starts off her Limit Break.
  • Fair Cop: An attractive young woman who's also an agent of the PC Continent.
  • The Gadfly: At one point, she manages to fool Vert into thinking that she and everyone she knows has the appearance of raw meat, while Raw Meat herself looks like a normal girl.
  • I'm Not a Hero, I'm...: She rejects Vert's assertion that she's a hero, stating that in a perfect world someone like her who brutually beats people into submission wouldn't be necessary.
  • Playing with Fire: Some of her Combo Skills are fire-based attacks.
  • Strange Cop in a Strange Land: She's an agent of the PC Continent from far across the ocean who traveled to Leanbox to hunt down the remnants of the Deity of Sin's organization that had been making a ruckus over there. While she does more or less fit in, some things about Gameindustri do surprise her since her continent doesn't have anything like the CPUs.
  • Sword and Gun: As with Adult!Neptune, she wields both a sword and a pistol. However, unlike Adult!Neptune, the bayonet on the revolver allows the gun to double as a melee weapon to be used in normal combo attacks. The revolver itself is fired only during special attacks.

    Other Characters 

"Older" Neptune / Neptune from the Ultradimension)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9c1f9099c9bc6297d02d9910314a6adf.jpg

"Wow, you have 'Nep' in your name, too?! Crazy!"
Voiced by: Rie Tanaka (Japanese), Melissa Fahn (English)

A grown-up version of Neptune that Nepgear and Uzume encounter in the Zerodimension. Much like the original Neptune, she has a a bright and positive personality. Her hobby is taking samples and unusual insects and she has traveled through a lot of dimensions with the "Nep Note" in her hand. Despite being called "adult" Neptune, it's unclear if she's actually an adult or still a minor.

She is actually the Neptune from The Stinger that followed the True End of Victory (AKA Neptune from Plutia's world). She stumbled upon the Heartdimension during her travels and was asked by Kurome to retrieve her console from the depths of the Planeptune Basilicom in the Hyperdimension. She does so, but couldn't resist turning it on, which caused her to get shunted to the Zerodimension, caused Neptune to pick up said console when she dropped it, which then led to her and Nepgear getting dragged into the Zerodimension as well.


  • Aloof Big Sister: Much like her counterpart at times, though this is mostly due to plot reasons rather than a part of her personality.
  • Ascended Extra: In a way, considering her first actual appearance in the series was during The Stinger of Victory.
  • Bad Liar: When she deems Croire too dangerous to be let free of the Nep-Note, Croire retorts that Neptune really just wants to continue taking advantage of her dimension hopping. Neptune's denial of this is incredibly forced, as is her attempt to feign ignorance when Croire notes that she'd been sabotaging AffimaX.
  • Badass Normal: Unlike the main Neptune, this one doesn't have the powers of a CPU at her disposal. Which makes the fact that she can fight toe to toe against both Vert and Nepgear all the more startling. In fact, one of her early-game weapons is a two-handed greatsword turned into a set of aptly-named Twin Blades, with the description suggesting that whoever is capable of wielding this thing is probably more terrifying than the weapon itself.
  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": "N" in her case after finishing her boss-exclusive Limit Break where the purple N shows up.
  • Bug Catching: She was just a random girl who wanted to catch bugs when she caught Croire during The Stinger in Victory.
  • Call-Back: Her gun is identical to the one used by her Super Dimension counterpart.
  • Collector of the Strange: Her hobby is collecting rare and strange insects to study as specimens.
  • Cool Big Sis: Unlike the main Neptune, who takes a much more ambiguous and sometimes unsympathetic approach to others, this Nep is much more openly caring; immediately getting friendly and declaring herself an ally of "cute girls".
  • Dimensional Traveler: Unlike other characters who largely wind up crossing dimensions by accident, she apparently does so routinely on her hunt for more things to add to her collection.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Unsurprisingly, this Neptune also hates eggplants, even after they've been cooked. Interestingly, she didn't even know what an eggplant was, but practically vomited from a single bite.
  • Dual Wielding: To further differentiate her from the normal Neptune, this Neptune wields two swords at the same time, although it turns out the other Neptune can also dual wield as shown in their Combination Attack but just chooses not to.
  • Easily Forgiven: Sorta. Despite the trouble she caused througout the Hyperdimension G arc, Nepgear and the other Candidates save her from Arfoire, even before learning that she was a Fake Defector.
  • Enigmatic Minion: Unlike the main Neptune who remains loyal to her friends despite her antics, this Neptune's true loyalty is somewhat confusing at times to say the least, and is frustratingly aloof to a great deal of characters. In the Heartdimension H arc, it turns out that she has been siding with Hyperdimension Neptune and her companions all along.
  • Evil Wears Black: Her outfit is a black version of Hyperdimension Neptune's, and despite starting out as an ally, she joins the antagonists midway through. However, she was secretly messing with their plans.
  • Fake Defector: While on Kurome's side, she secretly undermines them by misplacing the millionth ran-pig for a mass sacrifice ritual and leaving the portal to Heartdimension open. Unfortunately, the bad guys saw through her act from the start and attempt to kill her in the 3rd arc.
  • Fighting Your Friend: Nepgear and Vert have to fight against her during Vert's story in the Hyperdimension G arc.
  • Friendly Enemy: After her casual greeting and providing a drink, it takes a moment for Vert and Nepgear to process her proclamation of having joined AffimaX and coming to fight them.
  • Genki Girl: Not unlike her Hyperdimension counterpart.
  • Genre Savvy: Much like regular Neptune, she is very aware of the standard tropes and comments on them frequently. However there is a difference in that Neptune usually does so to complain about them and their cliched usage, while this Neptune does so in order to explain why she is doing a certain action. Like healing up the party before the next stage of the boss fight in order to maintain the RPG standards.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: Or so it seems.
  • Hero of Another Story: She brings up events from other dimensions she's stopped by on occasion.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: She's what happens when Neptune stops slacking off and starts to manipulate events to work out in favor for the heroes. Turns out leaving S-Sha's ritual one ran-pig short of the necessary million and leaving her and Kurome's escape portal open wasn't just her being careless. Unfortunately, both Arfoire and Kurome caught on to her by the early Heart Dimension arc. Meanwhile, Croire is very surprised at how manipulative this Neptune really is.
  • One-Handed Zweihänder: Some of her weapons are meant to be used with two hands, yet she uses two with one hand each.
  • Never My Fault: After learning that Arfoire tricked her, Uzume and Umio into feeding her their disliked foods so she could restore her strength and escape from the Nep-Note, Uzume and Umio berate themselves for being such picky eaters... while Neptune simply throws the blame on eggplants for tasting so bad.
  • The Pollyanna: Like regular Neptune, she's still has an energetic, cheerful, peppy, upbeat and lively personality.
  • Power Parasite: A benevolent example, in that she can use the abilities of anything she captures in her Nep-Note. For example, she uses Croire's Dimensional Traveler ability this way.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Neptune owns such a can, which is a book that can capture a weakened enemy and use some of their abilities. It constantly drains the energy of its prisoners, but they can break out if they eat enough food. Sadly, this doesn't seem to have any applications in actual gameplay.
  • She Is All Grown Up: Others mention that older Neptune is quite the looker. Neptune herself is quite happy to see how she'd look if she grew up.
  • Skinship Grope: She was pretty taken with Vert's boobs when they were in a spa together, and took quite a bit of time feeling them up. Vert didn't mind though, and was in fact proud when she complimented them.
  • Summon Magic: Whereas other characters call forth mechas or weapons from out of nowhere, this Neptune can summon...a giant helping of pudding to flatten the enemy. Even more noteworthy is the fact that she brings out two giant spoons to replace her two swords for this one attack.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Much like Uzume towards Plutia, she plays the similar role like Peashy, despite the fact that she's not a goddess; although the execution is somewhat darker.
  • Sword and Gun: A Call-Back to the first game's battle system, in which each of the 4 CPUs wielded a pistol alongside their melee weapon. In the case of adult Neptune, she mainly attacks with her dual swords, and uses her pistol only during special attacks.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: In the VR segments, she expresses pity toward Kurome for being so obsessed with revenge and laments not being able to talk her out of it, but was happy when Uzume (who underwent a Split-Personality Merge in the Revival Ending) said that Kurome didn't dislike the time they spent together.
  • Throwing Your Sword Always Works: Her "Nepnicle Combination" EXE Drive starts with her throwing her swords at the enemy, then close the range with pistol fire, before catching the swords followed by a multi-slash combo on the target. Finally she finishes it off with a final pistol shot.
  • Token Evil Teammate: While she is not evil, her confusing loyalty makes it hard to pinpoint to whom she had sided with.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Two layers of this. Through the midgame while working with the villains, she disguises her acts of sabotage as incompetence of this sort. Then when she finally explains herself, it is revealed she stumbled into Heartdimension by accident and agreed to retrieve the Console for Kurome, then accidentally activated it while taking a closer look in town - leaving it in an alley for her counterpart to find while she ended up in Zerodimension. Thus, her legitimate accidents set of the events of the game.
  • Vague Age: By the official site's own admission, it's not clear whether she's an actually an adult or not.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: After figuring out that Neptune has been sabotaging her plans, Kurome decides that Neptune herself has little value as long as they can take Croire away from her, and orders Arfoire to dispose of her. Fortunately for her, Uzume and the CPU candidates arrive just in time to save her.

"Uzume, I am relieved to hear your voice. We're roughly 70% complete with evacuation."
Voiced by: Show Hayami (Japanese), Xander Mobus (English)

Uzume's partner, a fish with a serious facial expression. Contrary to his ridiculous appearance, he has a very sensible personality, and Neptune describes him as an "elegant gentleman." He swims through the air instead of the water, but whether he uses lungs or gills to breathe is shrouded in mystery.


  • Badass Baritone: Played with. Normally, while his voice is surprisingly deep, he doesn't get to fight nor is he particularly badass. However, this trope is played straight to some degree if you recruit him to your party via his DLC, where he actually proves to be a capable and useful ally in battle.
  • Cool Board: His Limit Break has him riding one with Uzume's picture on it. The extended version has him smacking the board towards his enemy.
  • Cool Uncle: Neptune regards him as such.
  • Does Not Like Spam: He doesn't like eating freshwater fish, due to the implications of cannibalism.
  • Downloadable Content: Becomes playable with DLC. Which also makes him the first playable male in the Neptunia series.
  • Eat the Dog: The credits label him as Uzume's emergency rations. She once considers using his eggs to make pudding before he hastily reminds her that he's male and doesn't have any eggs. C-Sha wonders how he'd taste upon first seeing him. Older Neptune also said that she'd sooner eat him than taste another eggplant, and later insists on grilling him to reinstate herself and her counterpart as the protagonists.
  • Eye Beams: His Freezing Beam attack.
  • Fantastic Arousal: His dorsal fin can used as a radar, and is quite sensitive to the touch. He lets out several sensual moans while letting Vert stroke it.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: His dorsal fin became a radar sometime after the Zerodimension arc. He claims that fish are constantly evolving.
  • No Infantile Amnesia: He claims that he can remember everything since he hatched from his egg, but nothing about his past life as a human.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: Towards Uzume.
  • Reincarnation: He's actually a youth volunteer for Planeptune's Basilicom. See also Was Once a Man below.
  • Subordinate Excuse: It's implied in the past back when he was human he was romantically in love with Uzume. Even in the present, one of his bonus clips has him, in response to a question of whether he loves Uzume, say that his feelings for her have long transcended such words.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Uzume. This extends to back when he was a human as well.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Neptune and Nepgear notes that he sounds like a sexy gentleman, but they're bewildered when they see a fish with a human face.
  • Was Once a Man: He was once Uzume's loyal supporter who sacrificed himself to save her from assassination by Planeptune Extremists.
  • Zerg Rush: One of his attacks allows him to call all of the monster citizens of Zero Dimension to rush at the enemy.

Histoire

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9b59a07b6714e1c1806ab0000733e075.jpg

"Neptune! Listen to me. We're in the midst of Gamindustri's Shift Period and this is simply not the time for brash behavior."
Voiced by: Mika Kanai (Japanese), Stephanie Sheh (English)

An artificial being created long time ago by a former CPU of Planeptune. Her purpose is to record the nation's history. In the past, her role was confined to being the keeper of Planeptune's chronicle. However, ever since Neptune became the CPU, she became anxious for the nation's future, and so Histoire became an Oracle to manage the nation alongside its lazy ruler. She secretly places a large amount of trust in Neptune, who gets the job done when needed most, but she will never vocalize it. She thinks Neptune would get carried away with such knowledge.


  • Big Good: For the CPUs.
  • Great Big Book of Everything
  • Dream Sequence: Has several over the course of the game recalling her time spent with the original Uzume when she was Planeptune's CPU.
  • Foreshadowing: During one of her Dream Sequences, she has a conversation with a previous CPU of Planeptune noting the similarities between their respective headgears, which Histoire admits was intentional on her part. Now compare Orange Heart's headgear to Histoire's own...
  • Heroic RRoD: Briefly shuts down due to opening the dimensional portal that was meant to bring Nepgear and Neptune back from the Zero Dimension, stating it was beyond her specifications. In order to bring her out of it, she needs a Sanshiro's Soulful Patch, which revives with sheer willpower.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Kurome erased all memory of Uzume's existence after her sealing, though Histoire still has vague memories of interacting with someone she can't put a face on.
  • Meaningful Name: "Histoire" relates to her original purpose, that of recording the history of all that is, was and will be.
  • Ripple-Effect-Proof Memory: She's one of the few people unaffected by the Cosmic Retcon replacing the CPUs with Gold Third, which she attributes to her artificial nature.
  • Significant Headgear: A staple, but one that becomes a minor plot point. In a Dream Sequence, she mentions she intentionally designed it to be similar to that of a previous Planeptune CPU. It's not a coincidence that it resembles the one on Uzume's Orange Heart form.
  • You Remind Me of X: When she hears Uzume speak for the first time, she mentions that she reminds her of an old acquaintance. She's unknowingly speaking to said acquaintance, a previous Planeptune CPU, though we find out later that it's not actually her, but someone who was split off from her..

"I-incredible that I'd meet my beloved Compa in a place like this! Surely this must be fate!"
Voiced by: Neeko (Japanese)

Gamindustri's rogue rat. Born and grown up in a back alley, he's generally acquainted with bad guys. Compa once treated his wounds in the past and so he's harbored feelings for her.


  • Brick Joke: "Omega Warechu" is a monster that has previously only appeared in the credits of every main series Neptunia game. It actually shows up here.
  • Demoted to Extra: Unlike in previous games where he is always with Arfoire, he's now become a resident crook of Planeptune in Neptune's Hyperdimension G story arc.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He might be Planeptune's resident crook, but when Kurome offers to help him, he refuses to work with her because he can sense her bad vibes. Unfortunately, Kurome brainwashes him anyway, turning him into a mindless monster.
    Warechu: I've been in the game long enough to know that you're bad news, chu.
  • Kick the Dog: A downplayed variation. He attacks a kid who accidentally bumped into him. This earns him a beating from B-Sha soon afterwards.
  • Pet the Dog: Surprisingly, he saves Chuuko from Kurome's brainwashing attack.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Used by Kurome to instill a fear of monsters into B-sha.
  • Villainous BSoD: He's utterly devastated when Compa declares that she hates him for setting monsters loose in Planeptune.

Chuuko

"Being a woman means being courageous in the face of danger!"
Voiced by: Rie Murakawa (Japanese)

A female mouse who manages alone a secondhand shop in Planeptune. Possesses a considerable knowledge about retro games and can go into deep conversations about them with hardcore gamers like Neptune and Vert. Unlike Warechu the criminal, she conducts legitimate business.


  • Good Counterpart: To Warechu, in terms of business activities.
  • Rescue Romance: After Warechu saves her from Kurome, she develops a crush on him and tries to help reform him into a law-abiding citizen.

Dogoo Man & Lady

A pair of humanoid Dogoos serving S-Sha.


Plutia/Pururut (Iris Heart)

The CPU of Ultradimension Planeptune and one of the protagonists from previous game. Despite not appearing in this game, she is briefly mentioned by Nepgear and adult Neptune in Zerodimension Neptunia Z arc when the two meet each other for the first time.


  • Chekhov's Gunman: Her name is almost mentioned by both Older Neptune and Nepgear in the middle of Zerodimension Z arc, particularly the latter before switching to other topics. This is foreshadows that Adult Neptune is the same Neptune from the True End of Victory.
  • Demoted to Extra: From one of the protagonists in Victory to DLC character in Re;Birth1, and then to one of a DLC Scouts.
  • Downloadable Content: For the Scout System.
  • Previous Player-Character Cameo: Although she becomes The Ghost in this game.

Peashy (Yellow Heart)

A child kept in Ultradimension Planeptune's Basilicom and a former CPU of Eden, as well one of the protagonists in previous game. Unlike Plutia, she doesn't given any mention by any characters in this series.


  • Demoted to Extra: Just like Plutia, she's now become one of a DLC Scouts, while previously she's one of the protagonists in Victory and DLC character in Re;Birth1 respectively.
  • Downloadable Content: For the Scout System.

Nepgya

Voiced by: Yui Horie (Japanese), Christine Marie Cabanos (English)

A robotic copy of Nepgear that she built with her funny face components.


  • Lethal Joke Character: She's a really goofy character even for this series, but she's still a useful party member, and while she can't transform like Nepgear can, her skills do more damage than Nepgear's do.
  • Moveset Clone: She's largely identical to Nepgear, just with higher damaging skills in exchange for not being able to transform.
  • Nice Girl: While this applies to Nepgear as well, Nepgya outright refuses to insult the player in the Rejection bonus voice.
  • Portmanteau: Of Nepgear and a scream (GYAAAAAA!!!).
  • Robot Girl: She's a robotic clone built by Nepgear, though her face is the only visual difference between the two.

Chikama

Voiced by: Ari Ozawa (Japanese)

A supporting character debuting alongside Million Arthur.

Raw Meat

Voiced by: Yui Shoji (Japanese)

An animated piece of raw meat debuting alongside Nitroplus.

Abbadon

A monster referencing the Aragami of the same name debuting alongside with God Eater.


  • Big Eater: When he gets hungry (often from watching what he considers flirting between girls), he quickly devolves into this. Luckily (at least except for the girls' dignity), he's only usually interested in eating clothes.

    Gold Third 

A group that serves as rivals for the CPUs, their "Gold Form" serving a similar purpose to HDD. They first appear during the Zero Dimension arc, before debuting for real in the Hyperdimension Neptunia G arc during the final day of G-1 Grand Prix, challenging the goddesses and usurping their role as leaders of their respective nations.

General Gold Third Tropes

  • Anti-Villain: None of them are actual villains, just their roles lead them in conflict with the CPUs. Most of the arc is about the CPUs and their respective Gold Third counterparts getting to know each other.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Easily curbstomp the CPUs when they first time meet each other during G-1 Grand Prix final.
  • Badass Crew: When they band together they defeat the CPUs, who are a Badass Crew themselves, in a Curb-Stomp Battle.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Even when the Gold crystals are destroyed, the Gold Third can still transform. When the CPU Candidates seek them out for help in the Heartdimension arc, they each request a spar to gauge their current power without the crystals, but it's ultimately not as big a handicap as they expected.
  • Composite Character: In general, all of them are pretty similar to Makers from previous games. However, they also borrow some elements of Generals from Noire's spin-off. For example: K-Sha is a composite between Saori's kindhearted nature and Lid's battle hardened personality, while C-Sha is a composite between Vio's military-style outfit and Lee-Fi's fighting style.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: What was merely intended as a test for their Gold Forms results in a public curb-stomping of the CPUs.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: All four of them make their first appearances during the Zero Dimension arc, during Neptune's Hyperdimension interlude.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: They were once basically Makers until they learned of the Golden Summits.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble:
    • B-Sha is Sanguine, being the most childish and energetic.
    • S-Sha is Melancholic, being apathetic to almost everything.
    • K-Sha is Choleric, being the most trigger-happy as a trained mercenary.
    • C-Sha is Phlegmatic, being the leader of the quartet as the most rational.
  • Kidnapped by the Call: They originally just wanted to challenge the CPUs to a fight when they acquired their powers, but then Kurome rewrote history and made them the nations' leaders.
  • Moe Anthropomorphism: Of triple-A Japanese game publishers/developers.
  • One Extra Member: Lampshaded in despite being called Gold Third, there's four of them. And if you count E-Sha, it's really more like five.
  • Super Mode: Their Gold Form is comparable to the CPUs' HDD.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: While their Gold Form is active, and it's the only visible change in their character portraits.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Plays a similar role to the Seven Sages from Victory, although the number of members and personalities are different. After joining as party members, however, they share similar roles with Makers from previous games.
  • The Prophecy: The Golden Summit powers are supposed to be used to save the world in a time of crisis, according to a magazine that Neptune had read and ended up in B-Sha's hands when she left it behind. Granted, none of them aside from B-Sha believed it at first, but when said towers suddenly appeared, they panicked and decided to check them out, receiving their powers in the process.
  • Unflinching Walk: How all four end their Combination Attack when they become playable characters.
  • Unwitting Pawn: The Gold Third challenged the CPUs in order to test their new powers, but they had no idea that they were playing into Affimax and Kurome's hands.
  • The Usurper: All of the members easily defeat the goddesses and claim their roles as the nations' leaders. Subverted, as most of them admitted they have little to no experience in leading their landmass. This happens due to Kurome's alteration along with Affimojas' help.

C-Sha

"Hey! Hold off on that match for a second!"
Voiced by: Haruka Tomatsu (Japanese), Amanda Céline Miller (English)

The most responsible member of Gold Third and the group's leader. Despite her appearance, she has a voracious appetite and she can't do much on an empty stomach. She usually watches over the other three members of Gold Third from afar. In times of need, she exerts excellent decisiveness and judgement on behalf of the group. She also very fastidious about being stylish.


  • Aren't You Going to Ravish Me?: When she's kept prisoner by the Revolutionary Army, and a couple of soldiers say she's not their type, as they're more interested in underdeveloped figures like Blanc's (who they can't remember at that point is the reason they wanted to live in Lowee because of the Cosmic Retcon).
  • Arm Cannon: She uses this when performing C-Buster SP skill, just like a certain other Blue Bomber.
  • Antiquated Linguistics: Strangely slips into this while possessed, despite her possessor Kurome not speaking this way.
  • The Atoner: The reason why C-Sha initially lied to Blanc about not meeting her before is because she feels responsible for inadvertently causing Gamindustri to be in its current state. This also applies to her day job as a Hunter, as she feels that she personally has to hunt monsters due to being the source of the fog that's corrupting the monsters.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: Most of her Combo Skills involving martial arts moves, taking heavy inspiration from Street Fighter.
  • BFS: She unleashes this one in her Great Sword Dance skill.
  • Blood Knight: She's the Gold Third who loves fighting the most, even using Dante's famous "This is what I live for! I'm absolutely crazy about it!" quote in the fight to recruit her during the third arc when she's at 50% health.
  • Boobs of Steel: The bustiest member of Gold Third is also the most physically-oriented fighter.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: She's subjected to this by one of Lowee's corrupt politicians in Blanc's story. Though it's the mental damage Kurome deals out that proves more dangerous in the long run.
  • Cool Big Sis: Rom and Ram view her as one.
  • The Corrupter: Albeit unwillingly. It turns out that she's the source of the fog that's turning the monsters delusional in Lowee, but she's also doing her best to suppress the threat as a Hunter.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Brown hair with brown eyes.
  • Demonic Possession: Once C-Sha overcomes her original despair, Kurome uses the Negative energy stored up in her body to forcibly possess her with the intent of making her attack Lowee. C-Sha only resists long enough to get back to her Golden Summit tower, and Blanc and her sisters have to fight her to force Kurome out.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Briefly undergoes this when she thinks Blanc sold her out to Lowee's Revolutionary Army, despite Blanc not even realizing they were being spied upon. She gets over it once she learns the truth from some guards.
  • Gainaxing: The bustiest member of Gold Third, and deserves a special mention for her idle pose, a fighting game bounce that makes her chest constantly jiggle.
  • The Gadfly: To Blanny, to the point of helping Rom and Ram doodle in her manuscripts.
  • Gratuitous English: Often speaks in this when it's her turn to attack in the Japanese version.
  • Holding Back the Phlebotinum: She usually has to release the delusionary fog at certain intervals from her body, but when she's captured, she's forced to hold it all in to prevent from being released into Lowee. This, combined with Kurome's Mind Rape, eventually weakens her enough that Kurome is able to forcibly take over her body.
  • The Leader: Of Gold Third, by virtue of being the Only Sane Man.
  • Misanthrope Supreme: Briefly goes through this in captivity thanks to Kurome's Mind Rape, deciding that if the people of Lowee didn't care for everything she sacrificed for them, they could all die to the monster hordes coming. Financier's speech and learning Blanc's fighting the monsters alone snaps her out of it.
  • More than Mind Control: Kurome uses Mind Rapes coupled with Breaking Speeches within them during her captivity and to make her snap, but when that fails she settles for outright taking over her body to make her attack Blanc.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Lampshaded by the game itself in the Zero Dimension arc's credits with her brief appearance credited as "Sexy Lady".
  • Only Sane Man: It's said she's the only one who possesses common sense among the Gold Third. Considering what B-Sha, K-Sha, and S-Sha can get up to, it's not hard to argue the point.
  • Power Fist: Her weapon of choice.
  • Power Gives You Wings: Gains a pair of blue-and-gold bat wings in her Gold Form.
  • The Scapegoat: Everyone blames Lowee's problems on her, and go as far as demand her execution for it.
  • Supreme Chef: Crosses between this and One Note Chef. On one hand, she can prepare roasted meat worthy of the title of "Master Roastie". On the other, it's the only kind of food she's seen preparing.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Such a speech from Financier gets her out of her misanthropic mindset during her captivity. It takes Kurome forcibly possessing her to make her fight Blanc.

B-Sha

"It'll be 1,000 Credits for helping you out one time! Thanks for your business!"
Voiced by: Ayana Taketatsu (Japanese), Corina Boettger (English)

An upbeat girl who loves toys, robots and superheroes. However, she loves money above anything else. She has a secret identity as "Presto Mask", fighting evil day and night for the sake of children, even though everyone easily recognizes it's her.


  • Badass Adorable: Surprisingly powerful compared to her frail appearance.
  • BFG: She wields a recoil-less rifle that's almost as long as she is tall. It becomes a rocket launcher in her Gold Form.
  • Birds of a Feather: She and Neptune have by far the fastest and easiest friendship of all the CPU-Gold Third pairings, as both are friendly, fun-loving people who don't like working but love helping others. Neptune's impression of her nominal usurper is helped by finding her Planeptune practically no different from how she left it and seeing B-Sha's earnest if inefectual superheroism. Their relationship is essentially the same as Neptune's with Plutia, except they spend more time playing together than napping. B-Sha even makes it a point to exempt Neptune from her habit of charging people money for everything.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Kurome briefly brainwashes her into seeing everyone around her as monsters, then sics her and the transformed Warechu on Planeptune. She gets better after a fight and a pep talk.
  • Chekhov's Gun: She's the only Gold Third member to not visit her tower at the end of Neptune's arc and shatter her Gold Third crystal. The bulk of it ends up being used as the source for the CPUs Next Form.
  • Face Your Fears: Kurome decides to "help" her overcome her fear of monsters by brainwashing her to become hyper-aggressive toward them, while also making her view Neptune's group as monsters that need to be eliminated to save the children of Planeptune. After their "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight, Purple Heart convinces her to just accept her fear as natural while continuing to protect others.
  • Friend to All Children: Kids are exempt from paying for her heroics. The frightened screams of Planeptune's children while monsters run amok helps break her out of Kurome's brainwashing.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Her twintails mark her as the most playful and immature member of Gold Third.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Briefly joins Neptune's party at the end of Neptune's arc against a Brainwashed and Crazy Warechu as Neptune's Final Boss in her arc. B-Sha permanently joins later during the H-Arc.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's very dedicated to heroics (even if there's a price tag on it).
  • Mini-Mecha: The Bandam that she summons in some of her SP skills and her Limit Break.
  • Modesty Shorts: Unlike nearly everyone else, B-Sha wears shorts under her dress.
  • Money Fetish: Dear Lord. She asks for payment for practically every single damn thing! However, she notably always exempts Neptune from any payment.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: The only thing separating her from being B-Sha and being Presto Mask is...well, a mask that only covers her eyes. Lampshaded, as no one is fooled. No one. Literally no one, not even the random NPCs. Everyone knows it's her but say nothing in order to let B-Sha enjoy herself.
  • Pie-Eyed: Gets these when surprised, likely a reference to Pac-Man.
  • The Pollyanna: Despite being a bit of a coward towards monsters, she never seems to lose her energetic nature.
  • Secret Identity: As Presto Mask, helping Planeptune residents from monsters. However, it's actually something of an open secret in Planeptune because it's such a Paper-Thin Disguise.
  • Security Blanket: She freaks out when she sees Warechu, despite easily defeating him as Presto Mask. She eventually realizes that she's hiding behind her mask and throws it away to change herself.
  • The Slacker: Unfortunately for Histoire, B-Sha isn't much of an improvement over Neptune in terms of work ethic, especially when they play together.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Monsters?: Despite being regarded as a hero by Planeptune residents, she is afraid of monsters, having been she was attacked by one when she was little. Neptune' motivation to help her overcome this makes the two bond despite everything that had happened previously.

S-Sha

"Control of Gamindustri? ...Not interested."
Voiced by: Maaya Uchida (Japanese), Danielle McRae (English)

A young woman who's seems to be reserved and cool, but has a considerably aggravated case of eight-grader syndrome. She has two humanoid Dogoos who serve under her wing. She's usually being indifferent and has a habit of saying "not interested" in response to just about everything. That said, she does show blind devotion to a certain person.


  • Always Save the Girl: Her plan was to implant her soul into another vessel so the body of E-Sha wouldn't deteriorate, knowing full well that such a process would prove difficult and costly. While she is reluctant to resort to sacrificing one million ran-pigs after her plan to use the "Demon King" (really a Zero Dimension monster) fell through, she is still willing to do so if it meant E-Sha would live, despite E-Sha begging her to stop. Once she realizes Arfoire and Kurome lied to her though, she immediately abandons the plan.
  • Bad Boss: Mostly towards humanoid Dogoos, particularly the Dogoo Man, whom she uses as a chair in her first on-screen appearance. That said, she does appreciate them for their loyalty. E-Sha, in contrast, is close friends with Dogoos. She also doesn't show much open care for the hundreds of thousands of Leanbox Soldiers turned into ran-pigs and leaves Vert to take care of them and even intended (if reluctantly) to sacrifice them all when her plans for the so-called Demon King fell through.
  • Berserk Button: Her in combat lines point towards getting hurt being one for her, with her threatening to kill anybody who tries. It's because she's in E-Sha's body instead of her own. She's more upset at the thought of E-Sha getting attacked than at the potential of being hurt herself.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Averted. She's the only Gold Third who isn't brainwashed by Kurome to attack the CPUs. Kurome simply uses the threat of E-Sha's life ending along with simple manipulation to force her into doing what she does to prevent it.
  • Catchphrase: As mentioned above, she has a habit of voicing her lack of interest in a given subject.
  • Colony Drop: When she uses her Limit Break but only if she's in her Super Mode.
  • Cool Crown: Gets a golden one in her Gold Form.
  • Cool Shades: Occasionally shown wearing them in cutscenes, usually in public.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: As mentioned in the quote above, she has no interest in ruling Gamindustri despite challenging the CPUs for their positions. In fact, when Vert demands control of Leanbox after defeating the "Demon King", she plainly states she can have it.
  • Expy: Much like Ein Ar, her appearance is based on Lightning with some elements of Cloud and Squall.
  • Eyes Are Mental: E-Sha's eye color is green and the signal she's in control of their body.
  • Identical Twins: What the relationship between S-Sha and E-Sha appears to be on the surface, sans eye color. The truth is a bit more complicated than that.
  • Ms. Imagination: Not as prevalent as Uzume, as S-Sha actually can keep a lid on it and doesn't break her usual stoic character when she does, but she does have moments of fantasizing out loud that leave others puzzled.
  • My Greatest Failure: She attempted to make a movie in the past. It...didn't go so well. In fact, it almost caused the original S-Sha to die before E-Sha stepped in to take S-Sha's soul into her body.
  • Our Souls Are Different: Normally, S-Sha is the one in control of their body except when she's asleep; however, within the Golden Summit E-Sha can temporarily manifest as a spirit separate from her body, which she uses to make contact with Vert and Nepgear.
  • Power Gives You Wings: Or more specifically, one feathered wing, ala Sephiroth.
  • Possession Burnout: While E-Sha Sharing a Body with S-Sha worked in the short term, S-Sha notes that the human body wasn't meant to hold two souls at once, and her body is slowly breaking down as a consequence. S-Sha's main goal since was to find a suitable body that she could transfer her soul into and thus save E-Sha. Of course, it turns out this was all a lie used by Kurome.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Though she's more apathetic than anything, make her mad and she will end you. It's also the only way to tell that S-Sha is in control of the body at the time.
  • Sharing a Body: The body actually contains two souls, S-Sha's and E-Sha's. Additionally, the body is E-Sha's, but S-Sha is the dominant personality.
  • Shrinking Violet: This mainly applies to E-Sha, who usually can only answer questions with 'yes' or 'no' if she's uncomfortable with the person in question.
  • The Stoic: She's "not interested" in much of anything.
  • Talking with Signs: How E-Sha usually communicates in long conversations, specifically with texting.
  • Undying Loyalty: Toward E-Sha, to the point of trying to sacrifice herself when she was convinced that her soul was wearing out E-Sha's body. Nepgear eventually figures out that she can get past S-Sha's "not interested" by redirecting her requests at E-Sha, knowing that S-Sha will have to go along with it.
  • Voices Are Not Mental: S-Sha retains E-Sha's voice, but sounds much deeper while in control.

K-Sha

"This is K-Sha. I have successfully infiltrated the destination point. I will now continue the mission."
Voiced by: Rina Hidaka (Japanese), Abby Trott (English)

A student of the Lastation School for Girls. Excelling at both academics and sports, she's quite popular among the boys. Her hobbies are music appreciation and performance, and she's also skilled at rhythm games due to her quick reflexes. However, when she picks up a gun, her personality become that of a military veteran, able to complete a mission without so much as wincing at the sight of a bloodbath.


  • Ax-Crazy: She becomes this when she thinks Uni hinders her relationship with Noire, although this is downplayed. Thankfully, both Noire and Uni managed to snap her out of it; although Uni was scared a little bit.
  • Badass Adorable
  • Badass Boast: Says Gray Fox's infamous "a cornered fox is more dangerous than a jackal" quote in the fight to recruit her during the third arc when she's at 50% health.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She acts all friendly and polite towards Noire, but then later on, she threatened to kill Uni.
  • The Chains of Commanding: She originally didn't want the responsibility of ruling Lastation, though she eventually steps in so she can end the Order's stranglehold in the Basilicom.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Really doesn't like it when Noire pays attention to anyone other than her.
  • Contralto of Danger: Her high, cheery voice goes down several octaves the moment she picks up a weapon.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Wears this in Gold Form.
  • Jerkass Realization / My God, What Have I Done?: She realized what she did was wrong to the point where she apologizes to Noire and felt bad for being horrible to Uni.
  • Guns Akimbo: Her weapons of choice are a pair of sub-machine guns.
  • Gun Nut: In one cutscene, she and Uni have an intense discussion on how to best modify the latter's weapon.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: As a member of the Order, K-Sha realized that she wanted a normal life and ended up leaving them. Also, when reality is rewritten so that the Gold Third rules Gamindustri, she initially left politics to the Basilicom so she could continue her normal student life.
  • Madness Mantra: After getting brainwashed, she rants about how killing Uni will keep Noire's eyes on her forever and ever and ever.
  • More than Mind Control: Kurome uses a combination of a Breaking Speech and Negative Energy infusion to drive K-Sha mad.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Tries to kill Uni, whom she regards as getting between her and Noire. It's instigated by Kurome.
  • Tyke Bomb: She was raised by the "Order", a group of mercenaries who engage in War for Fun and Profit, though she ends up defecting. Unfortunately, they still try to force K-Sha into working for them and attack her Golden Summit when she doesn't comply.
  • Villainous Crush: For a given value of 'villainous'. After befriending Noire, she secretly harbors an obsession towards her.
  • What You Are in the Dark: As Kurome points out to K-Sha when she decides to use her blood to make the antidote to the Order virus killing Uni, the fact that Noire doesn't know she can do this would be the perfect time to commit Murder by Inaction and be the close friend who helps Noire through the grief of losing her sister. K-Sha is sorely tempted but saves Uni anyways...but the inner struggle is the final tipping point Kurome needs to push K-Sha into full-blown brainwashed Yandere mode.
  • Yandere: She starts off as a sweet woman who helps Noire by hiding from her nation's police force, but later degrades into a Clingy Jealous Girl, and the to a battle-hardened Ax-Crazy, akin to Raiden's "Jack the Ripper" persona due to her troubled backstory and Kurome's psychological warfare. She gets better though.
    • K-Sha is an interesting example, as she clearly realizes how unstable she is and tries to cope, going as far as dueling Noire with the intention of venting their issues so they can start over. Kurome has to resort to total brainwashing to get her to snap.

    Dark CPUs 

Giant entities who appear out of nowhere in Zerodimension. Each of them being as tall and large as skyscrapers, they are not only capable of destroying physical matter but also time and space. Whenever a Dark CPU appears in Zerodimension, the world is reduced into nothingness. For some reason, they all resemble the CPUs of the four nations in Gamindustri.


  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: They are giant-sized entities who easily dwarf everyone around them. They also attack and destroy everything around them.
  • Back from the Dead: They all reappear at multiple points during the story despite being killed in each boss battle. This is because Kurome can recreate them from her memories as long as she has enough Negative Energy.
  • Evil Counterpart: Of the main CPUs.
  • Fusion Dance: Arfoire fused with Dark Purple serves as the final boss of the Zerodimension arc. The finale has Kurome fuse with all four of them to become Dark Orange.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Vaguely angelic beings standing at over 30 meters whose mere presence rips up the fabric of spacetime around them.
  • Nigh-Invulnerable: They are destroying the very fabric of reality around them, making them immune to damage. It takes trapping them in a Sharing Field created from pure Share Energy to make them vulnerable to damage.
  • Powered by a Forsaken Child: In the H Arc, Kurome kidnaps the CPUs and siphons their power to perfect their respective Dark CPUs, replacing their lost power with her own Negative Energy to gradually brainwash them.
  • Voice of the Legion: They sound like monstrous versions of whichever CPU they're based on.

Dark Purple

Voiced by: Rie Tanaka (Japanese), Chiaki Takahashi (Japanese, fused with Arfoire)

The first Dark CPU that Neptune encountered, which resembles Purple Heart. Neptune, Nepgear and Uzume fight her twice: the first when they found the Share Crystal and the second when Arfoire uses her power with Croire's help.


  • Arc Villain: While Uzume mentions in the Z Arc that there are four Dark CPUs in total, Dark Purple is the one that she's personally been struggling to fight the whole time. It gets defeated about halfway through when the Zerodimension monsters suddenly become capable of providing Share Energy to her and the Nep sisters so they can transform, and is later revived by and fused with Arfoire to become the Disc-One Final Boss.
  • Back from the Dead: Even compared to the other Dark CPUs, she gets destroyed and brought back the most.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: Surprisingly, Dark Purple wields no weapon, unlike Purple Heart. The other three will fight in a similar manner once their weapons are destroyed.
  • Evil Counterpart: Of Purple Heart.
  • Wave-Motion Gun: One of her techniques involves firing massive waves of energy from her hands.

Dark Green

Voiced by: Rina Sato (Japanese)

The second Dark CPU encountered by Neptune and her companions after Nepgear and the other Candidates manage to free Neptune, Noire, Blanc and Vert from Kurome's control. With a giant spear (and a bust to match), she's resembles Green Heart.


Dark Black

Voiced by: Asami Imai (Japanese)

Another Dark CPU encountered by the Candidates and Gold Third, should the player choose the Hyperdimension route in Heartdimension H arc. Equipped with one-handed sword, she resembles Black Heart.


Dark White

Voiced by: Kana Asumi (Japanese)

Another Dark CPU encountered by the CPUs, adult Neptune, IF and Compa, should the player choose the Heartdimension route in Heartdimension H arc. Resembling White Heart, she has a flat chest (albeit better proportions) and has an axe as her weapon.


  • An Axe to Grind: Like White Heart, she uses a giant axe as her weapon.
  • Evil Counterpart: To White Heart. Surprisingly, it has somewhat bigger proportions on her chest compared to the real White Heart, which the Neptune duo joke may have been an act of pity from Kurome. Blanc is really pissed off when finding this out.

Voiced by: Chiaki Takahashi (Japanese), Laura Post (English)

A woman dressed like a witch, met in the Zerodimension by Neptune, Nepgear and Uzume. Everything about her is shrouded in mystery except for her goal of plunging the world into destruction.


  • Alas, Poor Villain: When she's killed off again in the Heartdimension, she goes out pitifully begging Kurome to save her from disappearing. Adult Neptune, who she'd been trying to kill at the time, solemnly bids her farewell while saying her name properly for the first time.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: When she's defeated by Nepgear, Uzume and Adult Neptune, Arfoire doesn't waste any time in begging for mercy from Uzume (who is the CPU of the ruined nation that they were fighting in) by saying that CPU's should treat prisoners "according to the law!". Uzume doesn't listen, outright stating that as the only CPU in Zero Dimension, she is the law and that if she wants to pummel her, she damn well will.
  • Arch-Enemy: As in previous games, she is this towards Neptune and her companions. Both Neptune and Nepgear lampshades this towards Uzume and the audience.
    Uzume: ...She an acquintance or what...?
    Neptune: Honestly, she's like one of those annoying relatives you don't like too much because she's always criticizing or picking fights with you. Ahem. Let me explain to those in the audience new to the series! We've fought this here old boss lady character called Arfoire like a billion times in the older games and anime releases! She's so boring! I seriously don't even wanna look at Arsnore right now. She's not about to make us enter a boss fight, is she? Ugh, I'm so over it...
    Nepgear: Sis, maybe you should be less meta in explaining it, so the players get a more immersive, believable experience. But in our world, Arfoirenote  should have perished, and in the other dimension, I thought she had reformed completely, which means that this Arfoire must be different from the ones we've seen.
  • Arc Villain: Of the Zero Dimension Z arc.
  • Back from the Dead: She dies at the end of the Zero Dimension Z arc, but is shown alive and well in the Hyper Dimension G. That's because this Arfoire is a creation of Kurome, who can remake her as many times as necessary so long as she had enough energy to do so.
  • Berserk Button: Both Neptunes get on her nerves with their inability to say her name right, to the point that she sheds Tears of Joy and nearly lets Nepgear pass her without a fight just for being the first person to properly pronounce it.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Alongside with Affimojas and Kurome.
  • Digital Piracy Is Evil: As in the previous games, she is the personification of this. Her Japanese name "Magiquone", is the name for flash carts for the Nintendo DS, while her localized name "Arfoire" is a play on the popular flash cart R4.
  • The Dragon: To her creator Kurome.
  • Fighting a Shadow: She's not the real Arfoire, but a copy created from Kurome's memories of the Deity of Sin. Even her death doesn't stop Kurome from just making a new one.
  • Flat "What": When Adult Neptune says she is gonna put Arfoire, now in her One-Winged Angel form, in her bug book, all she can squeeze out is a bewildered "what?".
  • Fusion Dance: She does this with Dark Purple and whatever is left of Rei Ryght's power near the end of the Zerodimension arc.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: While she does more personality than the average villain of this attitude (being both Evil Is Hammy and exasperated at how no one takes her seriously), her ultimate motivation boils down to being an Omnicidal Maniac who wants to kill Uzume and destroy the Zero Dimension, and doesn't even seem to register that doing this would end up with her destroyed either. It's not even that she knows and welcomes it, but she just flat-out ignores it when anyone brings it up. Justified since she's nothing more than Kurome's recollection of Arfoire as the Deity of Sin, who was a more straightforward example of this trope.
  • Ignored Enemy: When Adult Neptune gets introduced, everyone is so stunned by it that they completely forget Arfoire is even there, much to her annoyance.
  • It's What I Do: She frequently declares her intent to destroy all CPUs and the world, but when asked how the latter could possibly benefit her, she scoffs at the idea of needing a motive. It's just what she does. She's based on Kurome's memory of the Deity of Sin, who also defined her reason for existence as simply destroying everything.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: She states that she knows no other purpose than destroying the world, even if it means she too is destroyed. This version of Arfoire is based on Kurome's memories of the Deity of Sin, who she encountered once a long time ago - thus this Arfoire's generic personality.
  • Power Nullifier: Using Negative Energy, she can block the power of Shares, which allows her to get the advantage on Uzume and company near the climax of the Zerodimension arc. It takes drawing shares from both the monsters of the Zerodimension and shares from Hyperdimension's Planeptune to overpower her.
  • Reused Character Design: This Arfoire can transform into the One-Winged Angel forms of the previous game's Arfoire, specifically the Deity of Sin's, something which both Nepgear and Uni comment on. Ironically, the Deity of Sin's first form has been reused before for Overlord Momus, while its second form has been reused by Ultradimension Arfoire. However unlike the previous Arfoires, this trope is justified since this incarnation is just a copy of the Deity of Sin from Kurome's memories.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Briefly subjected to this inside of Adult Neptune's Nep-Note, though she breaks out thanks to eating all the food Adult Nep, Uzume, and Umio didn't like to regain enough strength to force her way out, though she decides beat a tactical retreat to avoid recapture.
  • Smug Snake: While she has her moments, this version of Arfoire is not much of a schemer.
  • Tears of Joy: Thanks to the Running Gag of people getting her name wrong, she's surprisingly thankful when Nepgear gets her name right, though not enough to spare her of course.
  • Undying Loyalty: Unusually for Arfoire, she has this towards Kurome. Which makes sense, since she's literally a creation of Kurome.
  • Villains Want Mercy: After being defeated by Uzume, Nepgear, and Adult Neptune, she tries to plead for leniency by claiming the law protects those who have surrendered and can't fight back. Uzume angrily answers back that as the only CPU of the Zero Dimension, she is the law and if she wants to beat her to death, it very much is allowed. She's only spared because Adult Neptune wanted to keep her in her Nep-Note.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Borrowing some of Rei's power from Croire seems to take a toll on her mind, not caring if she gets caught up in the newly revived Dark Purple's assault so long as she kills the CPUs.

Affimojas

"This world is money! Money is everything in the world! Any sin is justified in order to obtain it!"
Voiced by: Hitoshi Bifu (Japanese), Jamieson Price (English)
Founder of the so called "Secret Society AffimaX", he is obsessed with money and is willing to plunge Gameindustri into chaos in order to obtain more of it. He manages the largest information site in Gameindustri and uses it to obtain large sums of cash.
  • Arc Villain: Of the Hyperdimension G arc.
  • Badass Baritone: He has a very deep voice that belies his strength despite his rather mundane day-job of a blogger.
  • Badass Cape: And it serves as attack nullifier from all CPUs' physical attacks.
  • Beat the Curse Out of Him: How he's ultimately defeated. Neptune uses her strongest attack to take him down and shatter his Power Nullifier sword, which frees him from Kurome's control and also disperses the Cosmic Retcon over Gameindustri.
  • Blackmail: Try to do this towards the CPUs by offering to give them their Share powers back for 100 million credits. Fortunately, the Gold Third arrive to help before they can give in and help them take their powers back.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Along with Arfoire and Kurome.
  • Big Damn Heroes: In the true ending route, he saves both Neptunes, Nepgear, and Uzume from a horde of monsters with his battleship.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: When he refuses to give Kurome the last piece of her console, she drives him mad with Negative Energy for his upcoming fight the CPUs.
  • Cool Airship: His main base, and by the time the CPUs invade he's nearly paid off the loan he made to get it. The Revival Ending reveals that he has two of them.
  • Evil Is Petty: His Money Fetish is already bad enough, but later on, he reveals that he spends it on merchandise of busty blondes. Cue Nepgear lampshading this trope.
  • Evil Genius: Despite his fearsome appearance, he's quite an intellectual person.
  • Fetish: For busty blondes. Considering one of the CPUs is one in her human form...in fact, Histoire bought his loyalty by giving him photos and merchandise of Vert (which was all totally officially from Leanbox).
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: He's a blogger, yet he becomes an accomplice in rewriting reality. Though this might be justified given that his words can influence public opinion, which affects Shares and Negative Energy.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He and Steamax eventually shifted their focus from gossip to royalty collecting, and they also aided the CPUs in the Heartdimension arc
  • I Surrender, Suckers: After the CPUs beat him down the first time, he reveals he just did it to drop their guard so he could hit them with his Power Nullifier sword. It takes Gold Third giving them the power of their NEXT forms to come back from it.
  • It's Not You, It's My Enemies: He fires Steamax so that he won't have to fight the CPUs, especially Uni. Though Steamax decides to guard Affimojas anyways when he realizes this.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: He knows he's no match for the CPUs and is prepared to die fighting them. Kurome, however, brainwashes him to do so anyways to protect the last piece of her console.
  • Large and in Charge: He towers over all his subordinates in AffimaX.
  • Large Ham: His dub voice is Jamieson Price after all.
  • Microtransactions: The personification of this.
  • Money Fetish: Even moreso than B-Sha. Noire is surprised with his justifications.
    Noire: P-profits? Could it be... did you just change the world so you could make some money?!
    • He later reveals that all that money is channeled toward buying photos and figures of the aforementioned busty blond fetish, which surprises Nepgear even more.
  • Obviously Evil: How could a big spiky robot like that possibly be a good guy? Except he eventually turns into one.
  • Oddly Small Organization: AffimaX as per Warechu's own words is just five members: Affimojas, Steamax, Warechu, Arfoire, and Adult Neptune. And if you want to get down to brass tacks, it's really just Affimojas and Steamax themselves while the rest are just bit players or only nominally allied. Justified by the fact the whole "secret society/organization" label was something coined by the news they took for themselves, and their true purpose is a blog and information-sharing website.
  • Otaku: Reveals himself to be one along with Steamax, collecting figurines and doujinshis about his main fetish, busty blondes. Eventually, he reveals that his money fetish tendencies are also only there to secure him the funds he needed for his Otaku hobbies. After the true ending, in a scene he is seen admiring the quality of a figurine of Vert.
  • Power Nullifier: He has a gem embedded in his greatsword that utilizes Negative Energy, which he uses to cripple the CPUs. It takes Gold Third giving them the power of their NEXT forms to overcome it.
  • Shipper on Deck: He supports Steamax getting with Uni, to the point he releases him from his service to prevent him from having to fight her.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: He's more or less playing the similar role as Akudaijin/Mr. Badd from Victory.
  • Villainous Breakdown: As he's overwhelmed by the power of the NEXT Forms, his dialogue quickly starts degenerating into angrily and fruitlessly cursing the CPUs.
  • War for Fun and Profit: Averted. While he likes gaining profit, he has no interest in outright conflict. He instead prefers methods such as espionage to obtain his goals.

Steamax

"My only lord is General Affimojas. I will not follow any order except for the General's."
Voiced by: Ichitaro Ai (Japanese), Chris Cason (English)
A founding member of Affimojas' organization, he is one of its key members and is in charge of covert operations, usually doing some PR spin in Gamindustri. While he is an antagonist, his sense of nobility has him aid the main characters at times.
  • Angrish: When Purple Heart starts flirting with him, he can only let out gibberish, and his last "line" before fainting from overstimulation is random shapes and asterisks.
  • Anti-Villain: Despite the fact that he's an antagonist, he has a sense of honor towards the CPUs. The best example is when he brings Neptune, Compa and IF to the central of Planeptune to stop the rampage of Monster!Warechu and B-Sha, then distracting the former to buy them time to stop the latter, all this immediately after he just fought them to steal the Swirl Console.
  • Big Damn Heroes: In the Hyperdimension route of Heart Dimension arc, he manages to steal the console away from Kurome.
  • Cannot Talk to Women: Hinted at in his first appearance during the Zero Dimension arc. During her route in the Hyperdimension G arc, Purple Heart takes advantage of this and makes him so flustered that he faints.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: He manages to snatch the Swirl Console right out of Kurome's hands.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He's first seen during Neptune's Hyperdimension interlude during the Zero Dimension arc, buying some books for Affimojas.
  • The Dragon: To Affimojas.
  • Fetish: Like Affimojas, he has a thing for busty blondes, though after befriending Uni, he ends up preferring black-haired twin-tailed Tsunderes instead.
  • Fuuma Shuriken: He always carrying his detachable shuriken whenever he's going.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He turns a little earlier than Affimojas, offering to help the CPUs with dealing with the dark aura in the Hyperdimension G arc.
  • Hidden in Plain Sight: He proudly states that one of his best traits is "not standing out in a crowd". Only Uni's apparently ever seen him when he's actively doing so, and this comes in handy when he needs to get the drop on Kurome while she's fighting CPU Candidates and Gold Third.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: He uses Ninjato to similar effect
  • Mistaken for Gay: When Uni catches him with a bikini magazine, he quickly switches it out, only to realize that he switched it with a magazine full of hunky men. It's cleared up later when she realizes he has a crush on her.
  • Ninja: A robot ninja, at that! Several characters squeal over how cool he is.
  • Otaku: Reveals himself to be one along with Affimojas, often carrying his orders to purchase doujinshis and enjoys them as much as Affimojas do, he is also shy around girls to the point of communication deficiencies like a stereotypical Otaku. Generally, his scenes when he is alone with Affimojas sounds completely like an Otaku sitcom.
  • Porn Stash: Uses this to distract Purple Heart, IF and Compa. The result is hilarious.
  • Stealth Expert: So good in fact, when he puts in the effort only Uni can find him out.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: He plays the similar role like Anonydeath, this time with Uni. Unlike Anonydeath, he's more capable of defending himself.
    • He also counts as one to Brave, who is also a robot that befriends Uni.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Affimojas, to the point that he returns to their airship to pull a You Shall Not Pass! on the CPUs even after his general fired him to keep him out the conflict.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Despite being a fairly large robot, he apparently has a low profile that leads to most people not noticing him. Uni, however, finds this implausible.
  • Verbal Tic: "~Gozaru" in the Japanese version, a humbling copula for samurai and ninja.
  • Villainous Friendship: With Affimojas, who befriended him when they were kids and shared the same perverted hobby. Later, both drop the villainous part.

"Yeah, keep flappin' your gums, pal, it's related to 'chronicle' and you know it."
Voiced by: Mika Kanai (Japanese), Cristina Vee (English)

A girl with a fairy-like appearance who rides on a black book. Similar to Histoire, she is a mysterious girl who has been tasked with the important role of recording history. Until recently, she had been taped up and trapped as a specimen within big Neptune's "Nep-Note."


The Order

A group of mercenaries that once sold weapons and themselves for war in Lastation before being stopped some time ago. However, the CPU Shift Period combined with the rewriting of the world allowed the survivors to stage a coup within Lastation for themselves, intending to restart their ways.


  • Arc Villain: Of Noire's arc during Hyperdimension G, specifically the female Order leader.
  • The Beastmaster: They've been attempting to capture the delusionary monsters in order to bolster their forces, though a conversation between two members has one admitting their main plan is just to release them into other nations, preferably populated areas, and let them go wild and cause chaos to make the invasion easier.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: They want to be the big world changers, but ultimately they're just pawns of Kurome to be discarded.
  • Child Soldiers: K-Sha's history indicates they very much employ these.
  • Mini-Mecha: They have one called the M-Gear that they call the "anti-CPU weapon". The mecha itself is not the true danger however, but the deadly bioweapon contained within its chasis.
  • No Name Given: Their female leader is never actually named.
  • Stoic Spectacles: The female leader has these and almost never loses her stoic composure.
  • War for Fun and Profit: This is what they're all about, why Noire hunted them down and destroyed their original incarnation, and what they want to do with Lastation now that they've taken over the Basilicom and spreading war to the other nations.
  • Would Hurt a Child: If their usage of Child Soldiers isn't enough, they have no qualms attempting to dispose of K-Sha, and the leader herself attempts and nearly succeeds in killing Uni.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: When K-Sha decides she's done letting them have their way and refuses to follow through on her assassination mission on Noire, they decide to attempt to destroy her Golden Summit, the source of her power, to get rid of her.

Azna=Leb

The leader of Lowee's Revolutionary Army and inventor of the License System. If that sounds like a contradiction, that's because he's also the man who wants to engineer a take-over of Lowee.


  • Arc Villain: Of Blanc's arc during Hyperdimension G.
  • Dirty Coward: When the delusionary monsters attack Lowee, he abandons his fellow Revolutionary members and the innocent Lowee citizens to save his own skin.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He's disgusted when C-Sha falsely proclaims to have tried (non-sexually) assaulting Blanc in her sleep.
  • Evil Redhead: Has noticeable red hair, and is the major antagonist of Blanc's arc.
  • It's All About Me: He immediately bails when a large number of delusionary monsters close in on Lowee, scoffing at the idea of leaving soldiers behind to defend the town instead of saving his own hide. Once he's publicly outed for this, he starts ranting about how the people of Lowee aren't smart enough to exist without him until Blanc punches him in the face.
  • Manipulative Bastard: First he hires C-Sha to kill Blanc, but when that falls through he manipulates Blanc by revealing he remembers who she is as well as how C-Sha is the ruler of Lowee and the source of the delusionary fog empowering the monsters in an attempt to get her to kill the Gold Third member, then uses Blanc's attempt to get the truth out of C-Sha to arrest the latter while framing it like Blanc was in on it.
  • Not so Above It All: He's noticeably flustered when C-Sha claims one of her attempts to "assassinate" Blanc involved jumping on her while she was asleep, with her asking him if he has "no experience".
  • Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: Claims to Blanc as the leader of the Revolutionary Army he wants to restore the Lowee of old from the License System that shouldn't exist, and that their army is made up of those who remember her and want her to take her rightful place as the CPU again. While that is the Revolutionary Army's goal, he's in it solely for his own personal gain and power, and was the one who made the License System in the first place and attempted to have both Blanc and C-Sha killed.
  • Running Both Sides: He's the leader of the revolutionaries that seek to abolish the License System...and the man who made the License System in the first place. It's all part of his scheme to take full control of Lowee while coming off as the hero.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Once he's outed for abandoning Lowee with no regard for its people as delusionary monsters attacked, as well as setting up the license system, he begins openly ranting about how they're all too weak and stupid to function without his guidance... until Blanc shuts him up.

The Demon King

A powerful monster supposedly causing the attack of the delusionary monsters in Leanbox, and a being who S-Sha is very keen on capturing alive...


  • Foreshadowing: Nepgear's revelation that it's a monster from the Zero Dimension hints at the Mysterious Girl/Kurome's own ties to said dimension.
  • Red Herring: Vert and Nepgear are led to believe it's the source of the delusionary monsters attacking Leanbox. While it is a source, it's not actually a "Demon King" at all but a disposable pawn of Kurome to manipulate S-Sha.
  • Targeted Human Sacrifice: S-Sha wanted to capture it alive so that she could transfer her spirit into its body in order to "save" E-Sha from dying. Of course, this was all a fabrication by Kurome to manipulate her.

Mysterious Girl / Kurome Ankokuboshi / Original Uzume Tennouboshi / Dark Orange

Click here to see how she looks like (SPOILERS)note 
Voiced by: Mariko Honda (Japanese), Erica Lindbeck (English)

A mysterious girl first appearing in the second arc Hyperdimension G, who turns out to be the mastermind of the entire game's events. She is the original Uzume Tennouboshi, and she was the former Console Patron Unit of Planeptune before Uranus/Caelus and Neptune. However, she sealed herself away because of her powers going haywire. Falling into a delusion of hatred for Gamindustri and creating both Zerodimension and Heartdimension, the source of her power shifted from Share Energy to Negative Energy. Her goal is to break free from her seal to pursue a vendetta towards anyone who despises her. Eventually, her remaining Share Energy split from her and took on the form of another herself.


  • Achilles' Heel: The Swirl Console, her true body after being sealed, and the giant Share Crystal that makes up the core of Heartdimension. Regardless of how powerful Kurome is in her delusional world, destroying either of these will kill her. The only reason why the protagonists don't resort to this is because Uzume will also die alongside her (not that it stops the protagonists from doing it in the normal ending). This weakness is however removed if Zerodimension and Hyperdimension are merged, and it also no longer applies to either of them in the Golden Ending after their resurrection.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: She was a CPU of Planeptune, but her existence was loathed and despised by her people... some of them, at least. There were people who genuinely loved her (and in at least one case, still loves her), but she has forgotten them in her delusion.
  • Ambiguous Situation: In Uzume's Duel Boss with her, Umio suggests that accepting Kurome's hatred as part of herself is an option, making it unknown if Kurome fully disappeared after the battle or did a Split-Personality Merge with Uzume.
  • Apocalypse How: Similar to Rei from previous game, she attempts to do either Class 5 or 6, a Multiversal one. She intends to fuse both Hyperdimension and Zerodimension into a single apocalyptic dimension under her control.
  • Ax-Crazy: She is by no means mentally healthy, but as Dark Orange, she loses her calm and calculative demeanor and becomes more unhinged in her actions and words.
  • Back from the Dead: In the true ending, the heroes manage to kill her once after beating down her Dark Orange form and destroying the giant Share Crystal in Heartdimension, but she comes back for another round by using Negative Energy to revive herself. Unfortunately for her, that is all she could do left as without the giant Share Crystal, she and Uzume are on their last legs, which leads to her Villainous Breakdown as she attacks them again.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: She is the first villain in the franchise to outright win in the Bad Ending of a Neptunia game, signifying her status as the most dangerous villain in the franchise to date.
  • Big Bad: Of the third arc Heartdimension H and the game as a whole.
  • Consummate Liar: As a skilled manipulator and swindler, deception is one of her most useful weapons.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: She is sometimes compared to Rei Ryghts because they shared similar characteristics, as both are the Big Bad, Greater-Scope Villain and True Final Boss in their respective games. However, they also differ at many points:
    • In terms of backstory; Rei was the former CPU of the long lost Tari nation. Her people despised her due to her tyrannical behavior because she was drunk with her newfound power. Angered with her own people's rebellion, Rei used her power to destroy her own nation, which led to her losing her faith entirely, thus The Great Crash. Kurome (as the original Uzume) on the other hand, was the former CPU of Planeptune, only with her existence being rejected and loathed by (some of) her own people. She then decided to seal herself away because she couldn't control her power. In her own delusion, her hatred of Gamindustri grew, and she tried to break out of the seal to have her revenge.
    • In terms of personality: Rei in human form is a very fragile person who is prone to apologizing and has severe confidence issues, is incapable of making anyone obey her command, and thus ends up being stepped all over as a result. But in Goddess Form, she becomes extremely irrational (if also paranoid), unreasonable and overbearing. Kurome, on the other hand, is the resenter who hates Gamindustri, and she wants to give an exact punishment to Gamindustri for what she believes they did to her and has proven she will stop at nothing to be able to do so. She's also a skilled manipulator, deceiving anyone else to further her goals and and isn't above disposing of them without hesitation. As Dark Orange, she retains her vengeful nature and becomes far more unhinged and less collected.
    • While Rei wants to destroy the Gamindustri (both Hyperdimension and Ultradimension) with her sheer power, Kurome wants to destroy the Gamindustri by fusing Hyperdimension and Zerodimension into a single apocalyptic dimension.
  • The Corrupter: Hoo boy. Let's mention the examples one by one, shall we? The way she executes this trope verges into Mind Rape territory.
    • In Neptune story, she turns Warechu into a mindless monster while simultaneously casting an illusion over B-Sha that makes her see people as monsters in order to make her attack innocent civilians.
    • In Noire's story, she instigates K-Sha to kill Uni and tells her she is a nuisance, delivering a Breaking Speech to her that she always being alone. Later she flat-out brainwashes her to make her try and kill Uni and Noire.
    • In Blanc's story, she forces Blanc, Rom and Ram to fight a possessed C-Sha after seemingly solving the nation's problems.
    • In Vert's story, she manipulates S-Sha into searching for a "Demon King" (actually a Zero Dimension monster) and then sacrificing one million ran-pigs (transformed Leanbox citizens and soldiers) in order to "save" E-Sha, not revealing that I Lied until the very end when Vert and Nepgear are forced to stop her from going through with the latter.
    • In the Heartdimension H story, she kidnaps and corrupts the main Goddesses with negative energy filled with hatred, forcing them to fight the Candidates.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Because of her power being out of control, combined with her being treated like a pariah by her own people (although not entirely), she's become vengeful, leading her to believe that those who loathe her deserves to be destroyed.
  • Death Equals Redemption: During the 8-bit retelling of the story during the credits, Kurome ultimately apologizes for her actions before Uzume and thanks her for her forgiveness before vanishing in a flash of light.
  • Demonic Possession: People consumed by negative emotions are vulnerable to have their bodies being possessed by her, such as C-Sha during Hyperdimension G arc. This only applies when she projects her spirit in Gamindustri from Zerodimension; by Heartdimension H she doesn't need to do this as she becomes able to enter Gamindustri personally through a dimensional hole.
  • Dimension Lord: She essentially is the Heartdimension.
  • Dream Weaver: She has the ability to manipulate other people's dreams. She notably uses it to push K-Sha further down the Yandere route by showing her a dream where Uni doesn't exist and she has Noire all to herself, and later pries the new hiding spot for the Swirl Console from the minds of Planeptune Basilicom members.
  • Drunk with Power: She quickly goes off to the deep end after receiving what's left of Rei Ryght's CPU power from Croire, especially as Dark Orange where she becomes boisterous and wilder.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: She appears briefly in the Zerodimension arc in her original Uzume form while Nepgear's reading some corrupted data, altering it and making Nepgear fall into a half-asleep state when Uzume finds her, leaving Nepgear to brush it off as All Just a Dream.
  • Evil Is Hammy: She's a Soft-Spoken Sadist for most of the game, but really cuts loose when she becomes Dark Orange in the finale.
  • Evil Me Scares Me: Uzume doesn't react well to the revelation of her past and what her original has become.
  • Fake Memories: As part of her delusion powers, she can implant this into people.
    • In the prologue of Hyperdimension G, she executes this upon almost the entirety of Gamindustri to instill the Gold Third as the new leaders of each nation by taking advantage of the CPU Shift Period (the lowered faith of the people) and the negative emotion created when Gold Third unexpectedly defeated the CPUs beforehand.
    • In Heartdimension H, she revealed that sometime after sealing herself and before she grew to hate Gamindustri, Uzume also did this upon the entire Planeptune to erase all trace of herself from history.
  • Fallen Angel: Much like Rei with the long lost nation Tari, she is a former Goddess of Planeptune... except some of her people loathed her existence, and even called her a demon.
  • Fallen Hero: The former goddess is now a vengeful spirit hell-bent on unleashing her hatred upon Gamindustri.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Unlike most of the other villains, she acts civil and calm rather than acting like a cheesy, ill-tempered brute, even using Uzume's nicknames. Obviously, this helps her manipulate others, but she'll still keep it up to some extent even when her audience knows her true intentions.
  • Freudian Excuse: During the middle part of Heartdimension H, she tries to justify her actions by claiming she was treated like a pariah by her own people. But considering her mental state and choice of words, it is clear that she really enjoys inflicting pain of her victims, for the sadistic glee.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Almost literal example. From a fallen and sealed CPU of Planeptune whose very name has been forgotten, to a vengeful, powerful Resenter Heartless who in the Bad Ending even manages to succeed in destroying Gamindustri.
  • Fusion Dance: As Dark Orange, she combines all of the Dark CPUs and place them into her, calling herself the ultimate Dark CPU as the Final Boss.
  • The Ghost: Literally and figuratively, because over the course of the Hyperdimension G arc, she spends most of her time as a wandering spirit as her actual physical body is still sealed and Kurome's self is still stuck in her delusional dimension. It's not until she gains enough power to create a dimensional hole that she finally becomes able to appear as herself in Gamindustri.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: She's responsible for every single major event throughout the game.
  • Gravity Master: Within the Zerodimension and Heartdimension, she can casually alter the laws of physics, such as increasing the gravity of a location. She did this in Heartdimension H arc to force the protagonists to kneel before her as she announces herself as Uzume Tennouboshi, the CPU of Planeptune.
  • The Heartless: CPUs gather Share Energy (the belief and admiration of the people) to empower themselves, but after falling into her own delusion of hatred, her power source shifts to Negative Energy (fear, despair, hatred, and other negative emotions). Within her delusion, she gains strength from the despair of the inhabitants of Zerodimension. She is still able to gain Share Energy and use them, but due to her conscience (Uzume) separating from her she is unable to gather Shares by herself anymore, as Shares actually hurts her at direct contact. After Zerodimension and Heartdimension is destroyed though, her power source shifted back to Share Energy.
  • Irony: Kurome boasts about the fact that she exists on Negative Energy, and she is actually hurt if she is touched by Share Energy directly. However, she still needs to use Share Energy in order to manifest in Gamindustri, even her Dark CPUs cannot manifest without the Share Energy from the delusional goddesses she captured except if Hyperdimension and Zerodimension are merged. Even then, she can only fuse the dimensions due to Rei's CPU power from Croire, which is again empowered by Shares. For extra irony, during the Golden Ending Kurome boasts that she will exist as long as hatred does before she and Uzume commence their final battle to determine who gets to be revived, even though she no longer benefits by Negative Energy and it is actually Share Energy that will resurrect either of them.
  • Jekyll & Hyde: An accurate description when comparing her and Uzume. Justified, because they are the same person.
  • Kneel Before Zod: After revealing that she's a former Planeptune CPU, she increases gravity to force Nepgear and Uzume to kneel before her.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Compared to Affimojas and Steamax, as well as the rest of the antagonists from the previous installments, she has little to no comic relief moments and most of her actions are almost always seriously. Once she starts meddling with the protagonists by Hyperdimension G things get worse really fast, and by personally taking action in Heartdimension H it is even possible for her to actually win in the end. As no other antagonist in the franchise has ever won, this means that Kurome manages to be this for the entire franchise.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: She seems to have forgotten the citizens who supported her while only remembering the people who feared her for her Reality Warper powers.
  • Lotus-Eater Machine: Yet another way for her to induce delusion upon other people. She does this to the main CPUs in Heartdimension H to use their power to empower her Dark CPUs.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Big time. Even though she is just a ghost during the Hyperdimension G story, she is capable of manipulating everyone else, just for her entertainment. Despite making Gold Third the "leaders" of the four nations, she doesn't hesitate to pull her Batman Gambit and Diabolus ex Machina when the time comes. Combine this with her sadistic nature and you have a contender for the most dangerous Big Bad of the Neptunia series.
  • Master of Disguise: Part of her power to induce delusion to other people is to make herself appear as someone else.
    • In Zerodimension Z, she appears as Uzume as she knocks Nepgear out while the latter was searching for data.
    • In Hyperdimension G, her ghost takes the form of Noire while the latter is out on a mission and then goes on a date with Uni in order to sow jealousy in K-Sha.
    • During the beginning of Heartdimension H, she once again takes the form of Uzume and pretends to be that character with Neptune and the other CPUs. After startling the CPUs by summoning Dark Purple, she proceeds to entrap them in her Lotus-Eater Machine.
  • Mind Rape: She first did this to the Gold Third, making them antagonistic to their CPUs through various manipulations. Kurome then one-ups this by placing the CPUs into her Lotus-Eater Machine and using their energy to empower her Dark CPUs.
  • Mirror Boss: To Uzume (obviously) in the True Ending, doubling as the True Final Boss, though her identical looking skills are renamed to reflect her villainous nature.
  • Mook Maker: Within her own delusional dimension, Kurome can create armies of (unintelligent) monsters, the Dark CPUs, and even copies of beings she has encountered, including Arfoire and the CPUs. She can continue to recreate them so long as she has Negative Energy. Unfortunately for her, they cannot manifest in Hyperdimension unless she has Share Energy (that she can no longer gain by herself) to manifest, or if she manages to merge Zerodimension and Hyperdimension together.
  • Multi Armed With Dangerous: As Dark Orange, she gains a second pair of detached arms. The right one wields Dark White's axe, while the left wields Dark Black's BFS, both recolored to fit her color scheme.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Kurome becomes able to manifest as a ghost in Gamindustri during Hyperdimension G due to the Share Energy that Neptune brings over to Uzume from Hyperdimension at the end of Zerodimension Z. Eventually, she gains enough to create a portal for her true self to appear in Gamindustri personally.
  • Not So Stoic: In the True Ending. While she previously always carried herself with her Soft-Spoken Sadist Faux Affably Evil personality except when she transformed, that facade completely breaks upon realizing that only she or Uzume can hope to come back in control of their original body and they have to fight for it. It's especially evident as she's using her SP skills, as her voice becomes gruffer in a manner similar to Uzume as she demands her good self to just disappear while wailing on her.
  • The Older Immortal: She's a former CPU of Planeptune... as in she predates both Neptune's entire reign and life as well as that of another CPU, Uranus/Caelus. She's old enough to have encountered the Deity of Sin personally and is running for one of the oldest members of the cast, with only Ultradimension Blanc, Ultradimension Rei, Croire, Hyperdimension Histoire, and the Deity of Sin surpassing her.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Played with. She explicitly states in Neptune's story of Hyperdimension G arc that she wishes to see all of Gamindustri to suffer, endlessly if possible. This makes her significantly different than most examples, who want to simply end all life.
    Kurome: Gamindustri looks much better when it is endlessly falling into chaos...
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Her name is technically still Uzume Tennouboushi, but both Neptunes independently decide to distinguish her as Kurome Ankokuboshi, which even her text boxes adopt.
  • Ore Onna: Like Uzume, she uses the pronoun "ore", but hers is written in katakana unlike Uzume's kanji.
  • Paint It Black: She starts off looking similar to Uzume. Her outfit turns black when she shows her true colors (literally) and kidnaps the CPUs.
  • Power Incontinence: She couldn't control her delusion powers, which led to some of her people turning on her.
  • The Power of Hate: What Negative Energy is, for lack of a better description. It's her main source of power and she uses it to corrupt the Gold Third and CPUs at various points in the story.
  • Power Nullifier: Using Negative Energy, she can cripple people from using Share Energy by infusing negative emotions upon them. Arfoire and Affimojas both gain this ability from her.
  • Reality Warper: Uzume possesses a unique power that is capable of turning her wishes and delusions into reality. Within her own dimension, she is capable of using negative emotions as power source, and with them, manipulate reality itself by creating minions powerful enough to distort space-time and even casually increase the gravity of the world to force people to kneel. While outside of her dimension this power is less potent, she is still capable of inducing various forms of delusion to people and rewrite their memories. If Zerodimension and Hyperdimension were to merge as she planned, she will be able to utilize her powers in Zerodimension within the fused world.
  • The Resenter: She despises the people of Gamindustri; Planeptune in particular, believing that she was created by her own people only to then be rejected, discarded and sealed away. Her hatred is so great that it created the Zero Dimension (the embodiment of Gamindustri while she's destroying it) and the Heart Dimension (the embodiment of Gamindustri after she destroys it).
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Exploited, discussed, and then subverted. During her Motive Rant, she says that she wants to rule the whole of Gamindustri to reclaim what she lost, all while taking revenge on those who loathe her. Once her good self realizes that she doesn't really despise the world and the world still cares about her, it's so clear that she is merely a Chess Master who just wants to watch the Gamindustri to be destroyed.
  • Sadist: Watching people suffer is her most delight entertainment. Deceiving them, pitting them against each other, disposing of her victims when she no longer needs them, most of her antics have little to no purpose other than to satisfy her diabolical pleasure. While she does have a Freudian Excuse due to her troubled past, it is made all clear that she's really enjoy this.
    Kurome: They say that the misfortune of people tastes of honey... don't they? Seeing people suffer is my treat.
  • Self-Serving Memory: While some of her people did turn on her, even attempting more than one assassination, there were still several who supported her. She also claims that she got sealed after the assassinations failed, when she actually voluntarily sealed herself until Histoire could come up with a way to fix her Power Incontinence.
  • Shadow Archetype: Of Uzume herself.
  • The Sociopath: While she once sealed herself away to protect the world, she now just wants to watch it burn. Doesn't help that her conscience split off into another person.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: Her calm and soft speech combined with her sadistic mentality is quite frightening compared to most other main villains in the series. It's especially frightening when compared to Uzume's (which oscillates between a Tomboyish Voice and a Child-Like Voice) despite both of them being the same person.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Like Zerodimension Uzume and adult Neptune to Plutia and Peashy respectively, she plays the similar role as the Big Bad and True Final Boss, Rei from Victory.
  • Taking You with Me: After getting defeated, she declares that she's taking Rei's power down with her, and sends a swarm of monsters to wreak havoc on the Hyperdimension in her dying breath, though it's foiled by Uzume's Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Then Let Me Be Evil: Her people painted her as a demon because she couldn't control her powers. She eventually decided to become just that.
  • Tranquil Fury: After getting punched out by Dogoo Man of all people and getting her console (which is her actual body) snatched away by Steamax, her tone remains as cold as ever, but the protagonists are frightened by how much killing intent she's giving off.
  • True Final Boss: In addition to Dark Orange, Kurome must also be defeated in her human form in the Golden Ending.
  • Unperson: Did this to herself by erasing all memories and records of her existence from Gameindustri after her sealing, claiming that she was just granting their wish of wanting to forget about her. Even Histoire, an artificial being who was unaffected by her Cosmic Retcon removing the concept of CPUs, can only vaguely remember working with someone a long time ago.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: She used to be kind and bubbly, but her delusion powers ran amok and she was eventually sealed away. Though her people stayed faithful to her to the end, she was eventually corrupted into believing that everyone was against her, putting her into the state she's in now.
  • Villainous Breakdown: After getting defeated as Dark Orange, she disappears while desperately screaming about how she hasn't gotten her revenge yet. In the Revival Ending, her sealed body absorbs enough Negative Energy to revive herself, sounding as smug as usual when the protagonists confront her again... until Uzume points out that their sealed body ran out of shares and died since Neptune and Nepgear destroyed the Heartdimension's Share Crystal, leaving the two as mere ghosts who will soon be going to hell together. This completely sends her off the deep end, hysterically refusing to accept her fate, as she resumes her Dark Orange form. Her in-battle quotes have her almost pitifully wailing about not wanting to disappear and lamenting that the world keeps rejecting her.
  • The Voice: She's heard several times throughout the Hyperdimension arc, usually talking to a Gold Third member or Affimojas, but doesn't actually show up (at least not in her true form) until the Heartdimension arc.
  • Voice of the Legion: Gains a demonic echo as Dark Orange.
  • Walking Spoiler: Not as much as Rei from Victory, but still there are many spoilers in her character.
  • We Can Rule Together: After Uzume boasts that she's gained Share Energy, Kurome invites her to merge back together and take revenge on Gameindustri with their combined Share and Negative Energy. Uzume refuses, even after having her memories of their Dark and Troubled Past restored.
  • Why Won't You Die?: During her Mirror Boss battle with Uzume in the True Ending, several of her quotes during her SP skills has her demanding Uzume to "disappear" in a gruff, angry voice as she furiously wails on her. Which makes sense, as she knows what will happen to herself if she loses.
  • World's Strongest Woman: She is the second strongest character in the Neptunia series, at least in her own dimension. Although not as powerful as Rei from Victory, she is nonetheless capable of pulling the same trick as Rei does, even though she spends most of her time as a wandering spirit. Coupled with her cunning and deceitful nature, she's capable of presenting herself as the most dangerous main antagonist in the franchise. When she does get a body, she does become even more powerful then Rei.
  • The Woman Behind the Man: All the game's problems trace back to her. Arfoire and the Dark CPUs plaguing the Zerodimension are her creations, and she causes the Comsic Retcon in the Hyperdimension while AffimaX were simply accomplices.
