    Agents of Shinra 

Tropes shared between the two are:

Reiji Arisu (Voiced by Kazuhiko Inoue)

Protagonist of Namco X Capcom, Reiji Arisu is an agent of Shinra (no, not that Shinra), an organization that investigates paranormal activities. A specialist on Fluxes, portals that open from one world to another, Reiji's a skilled fighter using multiple swords, a shotgun and a revolver simultaneously. Ten years before Namco × Capcom, his father, another Shinra agent, was killed while fighting Saya; the scar on his forehead was from that battle. Since then, Reiji has harbored a strong grudge against Saya. In contrast to his partner Xiamou, he's very serious-minded and never hot-headed.

Xiaomu (Voiced by Omi Minami)

A 765 year-old "sagefox", Xiaomu is another Shinra agent, who previously worked alongside Reiji's father. Energetic, silly and an all-around nice person, Xiaomu raised the young Reiji after his father was killed ten years ago.

  • Anime Hair: Her multiple ponytails; the kicker? Those are actually her tails.
  • Ass Kicks You: One of Xiaomu's attacks in Endless Frontier ends with this at the end of the string.
  • The Atoner: She was the one Saya forced to deal the killing blow on Reiji's father.
  • Deuteragonist: Plays this role with Reiji.
  • Official Couple: With Reiji.
  • Sword and Sorcerer: Not to say Xiaomu can't go personal on the enemies themselves, but she has this dynamic.
  • Verbal Tic: "-jya" (じゃ), at the end of her sentences.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Xiaomu's Overdrive in Endless Frontier EXCEED ends with a powerbomb.
  • Yaoi Fangirl: Xiaomu often comments about how she enjoys writing slash fan fiction. In fact, if she is in the same party as Haken Browning and Reiji in Endless Frontier, there's a chance in her post-battle banter she'll whisper "Reiji Cross Haken..." to herself, just loud enough that Haken overhears her and asks her not to ship them.
  • You Will Not Evade Me: Xiaomu's sphere grabs enemies.

    Agents of Ouma 

Saya (Voiced by Ai Orikasa)

Main antagonist of Namco X Capcom, Saya is an agent of Ouma, a rival organization of Shinra seeking to bring chaos to the world. Like Xiaomu, Saya is a "werefox". She has a history with the Arisu family.

  • Back from the Dead: Despite the ending of this game, comes back for Endless Frontier none the worse for wear.
  • Big Bad: Of Namco × Capcom.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Always has an escape plan for whenever Reiji thinks he has her cornered.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Flirtatious, calls Reiji and Xiaomu by pet names and is generous enought to tell you her bust size.
  • Enemy Mine: Fights alongside Reiji and Xiaomu by the end of Endless Frontier EXCEED and Project X Zone.
  • Evil Counterpart: To both Reiji and Xiaomu.
  • Foe Romance Subtext: Invoked this with Reiji, to the point that the other party members mistake Saya as Reiji's ex-girlfriend and believe the two are going through a very violent breakup.
  • Gunpoint Banter: With Reiji at the end of Chapter 4. This has something to do with the above trope.
  • My Death Is Just the Beginning: Lets Reiji shoot her in the end so that 99 can finally pass through.
  • Kiss of Death: How she starts her super.
  • Ms. Fanservice: If her chest size and her long legs do not convince you, her flirtatious tones of speaking will do.
  • Nebulous Evil Organisation: Her organization Ouma is this.
  • Really 700 Years Old: More than a thousands years-old.
  • Slasher Smile: Smiles psychotically while fighting Reiji in the game's opening.

Dokugozu & Dokumezu
Dokugozu (left), Dokumezu (right)

Two previously unnamed minions of Saya, Dokumezu and Dokugozu are based on "Gozu" and "Mezu", the Japanese mythological guardians of hell with an ox and horse's head, respectively.

  • Ascended Extra: Neither of them had any characterization, let alone voices, in Namco X Capcom and were simply no different than the mooks of the game, the only difference being they always appeared alongside Saya. They reappear in Endless Frontier with distinct personalities.
  • Buddhist Mythology: Roughly based on Ox-Head and Horse-Face.
  • The Brute: They’re both pretty strong.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: They’re never seen apart.
  • The Voiceless: Only in Namco X Capcom; averted in Endless Frontier and Project X Zone.


    From Xenosaga 


Shion Uzuki


    From Tekken 

Kazuya Mishima

  • Abusive Parents: In both senses — has one, and is one. Ends up going against both of them quite a lot in this game.
  • Anime Hair: Although he arguably has the least whimsical and most realistically plausible hairstyle out of all the Mishimas.
  • Evil Counterpart: To his son, Jin.
  • Evil Prince: Of a family-owned corporate empire, true, but otherwise fits this trope to a T, save that his dad is just as evil as he is.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifting: It's implied that his transformation into Devil is this (as he's never seen in his non-Devil form in this game), though he doesn't seem to mind much.
  • Jerkass: Exaggerated, as he's incredibly callous, looks down on anyone and will backstab or eliminate anyone in his way in his path of power with a smirk on the face, there's a good reason he's one of the villains of his series.
  • Offing the Offspring: His progeny is the prime target on his hit list during the game.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Has red Glowing Eyes of Doom.
  • Shirtless Scene: By default.
  • Significant Anagram: Yakuza. The creator of Tekken has said this was the whole idea behind his name, and it also explains what the Mishima Conglomerate is really supposed to be as well.

Heihachi Mishima

  • Anime Hair: The only hair he has left is just as farcical as that of his son and grandson. This must be part of Mishima genetics, not the Devil Gene.
  • Archnemesis Dad: Is this to Kazuya.
  • Badass Mustache: Looks a bit like a Porn Stache, though…
  • Badass Normal: Who needs the Devil Gene to kick ass?
  • Black Sheep: The most overtly evil member of his entire clan, with Kazuya at a very close second.
  • Determinator: Is absolutely fearless against any opposition
  • Evil Laugh: He also does this the most out of all the Mishimas.
  • Evil Old Folks: He's a dick, but he can be pretty funny and can still kick serious ass.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has an X-shaped scar across his chest, but a hero he is not.
  • It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": His name is pronounced "Hey"-hachi, not "High"-hachi.
  • Jerkass: Ultimately everything the Tekken series is and has been is a result of Heihachi's heartlessness and zeal. He sealed his father away under the Hon-Maru compound to seize the Zaibatsu, he threw his son off a cliff to "make him stronger" and later in his life (upon learning of his survival), held the first King of Iron Fist Tournament to draw him close. Then 22 years later he brings his grandson into the third tournament (also one he hosted) to use as living bait for Ogre and then shoots him when things don't go the way he wants. Despite the fact that Kazuya and Jin are bitter enemies too, Heihachi has definitely earned every bit of contempt from both.
  • Smug Snake: Despite his plans once again not going the way he wants them to.

Jin Kazama

  • Anime Hair: Basically, Kazuya with bangs.
  • Badass Family: Although the entirety of Jin's bloodline is all messed up, you gotta admit that they are still pretty awesome.
  • Blessed with Suck: A "child of destiny"? A more accurate descriptor would be a "child of suck". He seems to have inherited no spiritual powers from Jun, instead being plagued with the cursed blood of the Mishimas. At the very least, Jun's influence tempers his demonic tendencies to a certain degree.
  • Big, Screwed-Up Family: The fourth generation of a family that just doesn't quite see eye-to-eye... to say the least.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Calls out both father and grandpa.
  • The Corruption: The Devil Gene is slowly eating away at Jin.
  • Humble Hero: Where most other characters meet the party with introductions that at the very least indicate what they do and what they're capable of, he simply tells them his name and country of origin.
  • I Hate You, Vampire Dad: Has an intense hatred of Kazuya, from whom he inherited the Devil Gene he so desperately fights to get rid of. In this game, he's pretty much out to beat the hell out of Kazuya.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Jin isn't regarded as Tekken's most attractive male for nothing.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Only a handful of characters see Jin's deredere side, and they are not in this game.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Devil Jin.

King II

Armor King



    From Baraduke 

Masuyo "Kissy" Tobi

  • Art Shift: A big part of it. The "Mr. Driller" art style is completely done away with here.

    From Bravoman 

Berabo Man (Hitoshi Nakamura)

Known outside Japan as Bravoman

Black Berabo (Myoshima Tajima)

Known outside Japan as Black Bravoman or Anti-Bravoman

Minamoto no Yoritomo

Kiso Yoshinaka

Minamoto no Yoshitsune

Saito Musashibo Benkei

    From Klonoa 


  • Bash Brothers: Him and Guntz.
  • Blessed with Suck: If you remember his Dream Traveler duties, having fantastical adventures in multiple worlds, making many friends along the way, and having to leave them all behind in the end, happens a lot. Furthermore, despite his insistence that he and Guntz won't forget the other heroes at the end of the game, he has a tendency in his own canon not to ever bring up major events from a previous game to the one you might be playing at any given time, so it's unclear that he even remembers those, let alone crossover adventures.
  • Blow You Away: His "Wind Bullet" attack.
  • Bounty Hunter: In this version, alongside Guntz.
  • Catchphrase: Wahoo!
  • Cute Little Fangs
  • Fragile Speedster: His attacks are weaker than Guntz but have a lot more hits and are easier to chain.
  • Kid Hero
  • Nice Hat: Has a Pac-Man-adorned blue cap.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter
  • Shock and Awe: His Thunder Hurricane attack, adapted from Klonoa Heroes.
  • Speaking Simlish: Averted, as the version of him adapted for this game is from one of the few games in which he speaks the common language.
  • Spectacular Spinning: Creates lightning this way.
  • True Companions: With Guntz. May also consider the other party members this.


  • Anti-Hero
  • Bash Brothers: With Klonoa.
  • Berserk Button: Janga's face, for understandable reasons.
  • Bounty Hunter
  • Cool Bike: His bike, the Red Clan, which he can even use to kill in a tandem attack with Hiromi from Burning Force and her big red bike.
  • Delinquent: Complete with Cluster F-Bomb, assuming the fan translators have it correct.
  • Disappeared Dad
    • You Killed My Father: "You" being Janga. Naturally, Guntz DESPISES Janga because of this and is still hunting him down for revenge. He eventually gets it.
  • Fanboy: Of guns, though he seems to be cooler about it here than in his game.
  • Goggles Do Nothing
  • Hair-Trigger Temper
  • Loner-Turned-Friend: Has already formed his True Companions bond with Klonoa here, but generally acts aloof and rude towards the others, with bounty and adventure being his primary motivations. However, once he slowly comes to see the gravity of the situation he contemplates turning tail in order to stay alive. However, with his father's killer among the main plot's recurring bad guys and with the good guys' propensity to have his back, common enemies and unpaid debts become his reason for sticking around. He initially has complete tunnel vision about revenge on Janga for killing Butz, flying into a rage anytime the cat shows up, but gradually becomes more patient about his goal, loyal to the party, and immersed in the actual quest to stop the Ouma plot. Ultimately Guntz develops into a Knight in Sour Armor, and even after accomplishing his revenge to the applause of the Unknown Soldiers he earnestly stays with the crew and helps them sees the real mission through to the end.
  • Punny Name: Guntz. Guess what his weapons are.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Wants to hunt down Janga at all costs, but the story's main plot and Janga's knack for escape are both constantly in his way. Ironically, it's after he mellows out, gains perspective, and becomes a true hero over time that he's able to finally kill the bastard.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The Manly Man to Klonoa's Sensitive Guy.
  • Shipper on Deck: In a rude way, for Stan and Rutee, as he accuses them of being on a date within seconds of meeting them.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Guntz/Gantz.
  • True Companions: Is this with Klonoa. Arguably becomes this to the others as well.
  • You Killed My Father: To Janga.



  • Affably Evil: He talks to everyone in a nice tone (most of the time), even as he's demanding things through violence or spreading a plague.
  • Ax-Crazy
  • Beware the Silly Ones
  • Dragon with an Agenda: To Lord Druaga.
  • Floating Limbs: He has these in almost every game except for "Door to Phantomile" where he has stick-figure arms and legs.
  • Giggling Villain
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: his main method of attack, which works well considering his hands aren't limited by arms.
  • The Heavy: He's arguably the most active of all the villains, spreading the "sleeping sickness", invading a Holy Place of Worship while Janga distracted everyone, making repeated attempts to get sacrifices for Druaga and the Soul Edge, and seemingly knowing what's really going on what with his last words being a hint towards 99's "Mingling of Worlds".
  • Laughably Evil: At first anyway. Like in his home series, he's something akin to a Starter Villain at first, but when he starts taking things seriously, he's frighteningly component.
  • Monster Clown
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Joker/Joka.
  • Stealth Pun: He's a clown in a game with fighting mechanics. He's pretty good at juggling his opponents.
  • Taking You with Me: He sets himself to explode to take out the heroes after his last mandatory fight. However, intentionally subverted He intentionally made it a dud so the heroes would panic and humiliate themselves in front of him as a final joke. Taira somberly notes that he was a comedian to the very end.


The Ōmiko

  • Everyone Calls Her Omiko: Her real name is unknown. Ōmiko is a title…
    • Meaningful Name: …which literally means "Great Shrine Maiden" or, as she's outright called in localized/translated versions of the games she appears in, "High Priestess".
  • High Priestess: Lolo's teacher. Works for Lady Ishtar instead of Claire in this game.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Looks even more human-like than Lolo, only possessing the large ears but not the monkey tail.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: A good variation.

    From Shadow Land 


  • Assist Character: Tarosuke can call upon his guardian spirit, Monmotaro, to attack.
  • Dirty Kid: He may be a kid, but is far from being morally innocent.
  • From the Mouths of Babes: The other two characters from his game that appear here know him for his interest in gambling and sex, respectively.
  • The Gambling Addict: Hangs out at Boss Bull's gambling hall and often plays dice with him. One of the lesser extreme examples in that it's unclear whether money changes hands during their games (at least following the original Shadow Land journey), and there's certainly no implication that either has been made miserable as a result of these games. Justified by Tarosuke being a dead kid with no noted family.
  • Ki Manipulation: Can shoot small energy bullets.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Is still certainly appreciative of Otohime's brand of entertainment.
  • Morality Pet: Becomes this to Kagekiyo, and knowingly uses this to keep him pointed at the right targets.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years

Boss Bull




    From Soul Series 

Mitsurugi Heishirö

  • Arrogant Samurai: In appearance.
  • Badass Beard: Covers most of the bottom part of his face. Adds to his manliness.
  • Badass Longrobe: Some incarnations of him sport them.
  • Badass Normal: Mitsurugi, so far as we can tell, has no special powers and no connection to either spirit sword. The katana he uses is perfectly ordinary metal. He's made up for this by being so skilled entire armies of normal men, including ones with guns can't beat him, and he's considered a worthy adversary and ally to the cast of his game, which is mostly filled with blatantly supernatural or otherwise fantastical characters both good and bad.
  • Blood Knight
  • Cluster F-Bomb: If a certain GameFAQs fan translation is to be believed, he's the patron saint of this next to Guntz and Janga. At the very least, they use an extremely crass and rude way of speaking.
  • Duel to the Death: All challenges are this for both Mitsurugi and those he challenges.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Played straight enough, but also subverted with his desire to capture the Soul Edge for its power.note 
  • Meaningful Name: "Mitsurugi" literally means "divine sword."
  • One-Man Army: He goes as far as to purposefully side with outnumbered sides so he has more people to fight.
  • Samurai Ponytail: Mitsurugi has the second, scruffier type of hair.
  • The Rival / Worthy Opponent: Taki.



    From Tales Series 

Stahn Alleron

Rutee Katret

  • The Lancer: She tends to be a more cynical and pragmatic foil to Stahn's idealism.
  • Making a Splash: Her Empathic Weapon Atwight is the Swordian of Water.
  • The Red Mage: Can cast offensive and support magic while also being a competent thief and swordsman.
  • Ship Tease: With Stahn.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Her surname, Katret/Katrea.
  • Tsundere: Not as strongly as in the Tales series, but definitely seems to be this to Stahn if her response to Klonoa and Guntz's comment about them being on a date is any indication.

Lion Magnus / Judas

  • Abusive Parents: Knows that his father Hugo is a manipulative, abusive dick. Still does his bidding due to having something to protect.
  • Came Back Wrong / Demonic Possession: Black Valkyrie reviving him is, well, one of the two.
  • Composite Character: Even before the release of Tales of Destiny R, Judas has incorporated Leon's arsenals. He has Moon Fall, Houryuu Zankou Ken from Judas and... Tiger Blade from Leon. And his ultimate? Not Infernal Suffering/Majin Rengokusatsu, but instead Leon's Marian.
  • Mr. Fanservice: He's certainly been successful in drawing in female fans...
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Lion/Leon. Which one makes more sense with the pronunciation completely depends on where you're from.
  • Taking You with Me: Tries this. Fails.
  • That Man Is Dead: When Black Valkyrie revives him as Judas.

    From The Tower of Druaga 



Princess Ki



    From Legend of the Valkyrie 

Kurino Sandra

Known in Europe as Whirlo


Known in Europe as Steven

  • Action Duo: With Kurino.
  • Aerith and Bob: Her dad's name is Andy, which…doesn't really match up to hers. Sure would be different if she was a guy named Steven like the people localizing the European version of Sandra's Adventure thought.
  • Color Motif: Purple. It's the color of both her eyes and her attire, emphasizing her exotic nature as a Quarkman.
  • Flash Step
  • Highly Visible Ninja: Her abilities play out this way.
  • In the Hood: Wears a full-body hooded purple devil suit, as do all members of her species.
  • Playing withFire: Uses Fireballs.
  • True Companions: Sees Kurino and Valkyrie as this.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair


Black Valkyrie



Known in Europe as Slick

  • Big Damn Heroes: Comes in with a big Lens-powered dragon to save the party when the Flying Battleship Balrog starts to crumble with them on it.


  • The Corruption: Has this as a superpower. He likes to use it on the Sandra tribe. This turns their green skin black.
  • Demon Lords and Archdevils: Is part of an alliance involving them, the other two demon lords included being Astaroth and Druaga.
  • Evil Sorcerer: Of the Sorcerous Overlord variety.
  • The Ghost: Constantly mentioned, sends soldiers out, is one of the major players on the heel side of the plot, but never actually appears on-screen until it's time to fight him in the penultimate chapter, making him the most akin amongst the crossover villains to a classic Big Bad / Final Boss.
  • Made of Evil: He's described as an incarnation of evil born from the malice of defeated hearts, and thus can never be truly Deader Than Dead.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: He wants to destroy the multiverse and bring back the complete void of darkness that was once in its place.
  • Red and Black Cloak: Wears one that makes him look like the Freeza of Sabine's species.

    From Wonder Momo 

Wonder Momo (Kanda Momo)

Amazona (Akiho Mazo)


    From Street Fighter 


  • Statuesque Stunner: Believe or not, despite her legendary stems, she only barely qualifies at 5'8".

Cammy White

  • English Rose: Cammy shows what happens to an English Rose when you mix her with an Action Girl and Ms. Fanservice. You'd never think of it if you judged her only by her VERY fanservicy looks, but her serious personality and her devotion to her True Companions have more than a whiff of this. She even has the RP accent. "Cammy White" (Camilla = "priestess", White = the color of purity), is also a very English Rose-ish name.
  • Gorgeous Gaijin: One of the few real-world non-Asian females here. The others are her fellow Dolls. She looks very fanservice-y, too.
  • Kick Chick: She has more kick-based attacks than punches.
  • Meaningful Name: Her last name as Cammy (White). "White" implies emptiness or void, which describes her lack of recollection. It's also a pretty common British surname. Furthermore, see English Rose above.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Her thong leotard combined with gratuitous opportunities to show off her ass, which is incredibly well-toned.
  • Rapunzel: Has extremely long hair. Her braided hair reach to her bottom.

Juni and Juli

  • Boobs of Steel: Juli is noticeably developed for a girl of her age. She also happens to share Cammy's moveset.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Along with all the rest of Vega's Dolls. Only Juli's past identities is made clear before the events of this game, though. In T.Hawk's story in Alpha 3, Juli is revealed to be T.Hawk's missing friend Julia, who is apparently a member of his tribe as well.
  • Head Swap: Of Cammy, and in turn, of each other. Their legs are also recolored so that they look like they're wearing full-body suits instead of a leotard like Cammy.
  • Sexy Backless Outfit: They wear an uniform with a nice gap on the back, making the back, aside from the face, the only portion of visible skin in an otherwhise more straight Spy Catsuit.


  • Beware the Quiet Ones: While he isn't exactly a social person, he does have close friends and allies, who are not to be harmed in front of him. He will protect them violently.
  • Blood Knight: Fighting is everything for Ryu, though he does not share Gouki's love of carnage. In other words, he's a Lighter and Softer Gouki. No wonder Gouki tries to corrupt him with the Satsui no Hado even in this game.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: The "Satsui no Hadou" state, literally "Surge of Murderous Intent". His Evil Ryu alter-ego is literally the what-if result of him succumbing to this.
  • Shoryuken: He and Ken are even the picture characters for the chapter with it as the title, ans for good reason.

Ken Masters

  • But Not Too Foreign: He has a 3/4 Japanese heritage (fully Japanese mom, half-Japanese/half-American dad), but he lives in America. Speculation abounds that (due to his eyebrows) he's naturally raven-haired and dyes his hair blond.
  • Calling Your Attacks: "Hadoken!", "Shoryuken!" and "Tatsumaki Senpuukyaku", which is rendered unintelligible.
  • Catchphrase: "Hadoken!"
  • Cutscene Power to the Max: Can perform the Shin Shoryuken in a cutscene, something he can't do it in gameplay afterwards. It might be a nod to Brainwashed Ken from the mid-90s SF anime movie and Violent Ken from SNK vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos, where he could do all sorts of wicked stuff. It could be argued that as one of the top practitioners of Gouken's style, Ken has learnt at least the theory of all of his school's moves.
  • Shotoclone: The very first that could actually be called a clone.


Known outside Japan as M. Bison

  • Arch-Enemy: To Chun-Li, not so much to Ryu despite him being the series mascot.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's the leader of an international terrorist organization and is typically implied to be one of the strongest characters in series.
  • Badass Arm-Fold: Is quite fold of this too.
  • Badass Cape: He actually wears it here, like he does in Alpha.
  • Bad Powers, Bad People: The Psycho Power is pure negative energy that only truly works once you have purged yourself of all goodness. And Vega has done just that.
  • Big Bad: Of the Street Fighter franchise. Even in this game, in which he's part of a Villain Team-Up with numerous series' top heels, he's manipulating and maneuvering his way to try to harness perfect Psycho Power.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Shadaloo is bad. Vega has no compunction about sharing that with anyone.
  • Cop Killer: Chun Li's father, whom he killed, was an Interpol agent.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": He may be referred to as "Dictator," due to the differences in names between Japan and everywhere else in the world.
  • Grand Theft Me: Pulls this on Rose to ensure his survival post-Alpha until a suitable replacement body was made. He also planned on using Ryu as his host in Alpha and had Cammy manufactured as a backup body.
  • Jerkass: If he has some action involving another character's life, it always involves him doing something evil like murdering somebody close to them, or something else evil that messed with their lives.
  • Made of Evil: Considering that he purged himself of all of his good qualities (which went on to become Rose) to master his Psycho Power (which can be described as the literal interpretation of the trope; nothing but concentrated negative energy), he'd technically qualify for this.
  • Monochromatic Eyes: From Super Street Fighter II onward.
  • Not Quite Dead: Has come back to life twice by this point in the ballgame.
  • Obviously Evil: Wears a blood-red military uniform, has pupil-less eyes, and controls an energy that's essentially the very essence of pure negativity itself. Also shows up to some fights ominously draped in a cape and the insignia for his enterprise is a skull with wings.
  • Parts Unknown: Like the other Final Bosses in his series and unlike all of the other World Warriors, his country of origin is never specified.
  • Power Degeneration: Aside from his desire to Take Over the World, his main goal since Alpha 3 has been motivated by this as his Pyscho Power started to exceed the limits of what his body he can hold so he's been trying to find one strong enough to hold it.


Known outside Japan as Akuma

Sakura Kasugano

Karin Kanzuki

    From Darkstalkers 


  • Absolute Cleavage: Very easy when her fur stripes barely even qualifies as coverage.
  • Action Dress Rip: Strips it off in battle.
  • Animal Motifs: Take a wild guess...
  • Bare Your Midriff: Felicia bares this and a LOT more.
  • Beauty Equals Goodness: A beautiful catwoman, and is possibly the kindest of the cast (though she does have more competition here than in her canon series).
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Just because she chose a pacifistic lifestyle, and just because her motto is always turning the other cheek, it doesn't means that she cannot punch your head off or cut you into ribbons if you piss her off enough.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: She has a bit of it. She is also fond of tossing horrible puns here and there.
  • Boobs of Steel
  • Cat Girl: She is the living embodiment.
  • Cat Folk
  • Cat Smile: Naturally.
  • Cute Little Fangs
  • Dance Battler: Felicia's both a fighter and an exotic dancer. She even has a show/routing called the "Battle Musical" with Wonder Momo.
  • Dumb Is Good: Constantly mistakes King for a fellow Darkstalker, specifically a werejaguar, despite King explaining to her repeatedly that he's a human Luchador wearing a jaguar mask.
  • Exposed to the Elements: Felicia can fight anywhere in her Fur Bikini, be it in the hot depths of the Makai, or the arctic regions of Canada/Japan.
  • For Happiness: Her outlook on life in a nutshell.
  • Friend to All Children: Felicia loves children and wishes to take care of those who cannot defend themselves.
  • Genki Girl: Her eccentricities sometimes approach Cloudcuckoolander levels.
  • Gorgeous Gaijin: She's an American and has the largest bust and hips of the Darkstalkers ladies.
  • Gratuitous English: When it's her turn: "Let's dance!"
  • Idol Singer: Has become this in the game's mixed universe, to the point Karin Kanzuki's family had a lot of money banking on her Battle Musical performance with Wonder Momo.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: She's very innocent, but she prefers going out in her usual half-naked style. In the first chapter, Felicia casually strips off her white evening dress in the street, much to King's shock and embarrassment.
  • Kind Hearted Cat Lover
  • Meaningful Name: Felicia (and male name counterpart Felix) means happiness. Fits well for Felicia since she wishes to coexist with humans in peace. There's also the obvious similarity with "feline" too.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Competes with Morrigan on this.
  • Natural Weapon: Those claws of hers aren't just for show.
  • Nice Girl: Felicia is definitely the kindest of the Darkstalkers cast, and still seems to stand out in this game despite its giant ensemble cast containing plenty of real good folks.
  • Prehensile Tail
  • Rapunzel Hair: Long enough to reach past her waist and cover her bare butt. Its general shape is also reminiscent of a lion's mane, which adds to her feline image.
  • Running Gag:
    • The real nature of her fur bikini.
    • Also, Felicia constantly calling King a fellow Darkstalker despite King explaining to her over and over that he isn't a Darkstalker, he's just a human Luchador wearing a jaguar mask. This long running gag also serves a a setup for another joke, as King (after complaining endless times about how dumb and dense Felicia can be) suddenly realizes that Felicia is a Darkstalker instead of a woman cosplaying as a cat as he believed all along. Furthermore, not even after years later in Project X Zone 2 does she return the favor and realize he's actually wearing a mask.
  • Sexy Backless Outfit: Like with the rest of her body, Felicia bares her back wholly, then again, she's technically naked.
  • She-Fu: Combines fighting with her natural cat-grace and flexibility. Some of her moves even flash her butt.
  • She's Got Legs
  • Thong of Shielding
  • Token Good Teammate: The most unambiguously good character from the Darkstalkers series and possibly overall in the game.
  • True Blue Femininity: Technically this as the only blue is in her hair.
  • Walking Swimsuit Scene: She walks about everywhere in her Fur Bikini.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Is tag team partners with Tekken's King. One of their tag supers is a double Shining Wizard.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She's got so much you could lose yourself in it.

Demitri Maximoff

Morrigan Aensland

  • Pretty Princess Powerhouse: The uncrowned Head of the Aensland house may look frail and dainty, but she can and will kick your ass.
  • Scotireland: Irish name, has elements characteristic of an Irish/Celtic goddess, yet with Scottish ancestry and has been known to be dubbed in some games with a Scottish accent.
  • Screw Yourself/Twin Sisters Incest: Good Lord, if the way she beckoned Lilith to fuse back together did not suggest this…

Lilith Aensland


Known outside Japan as Huitzil

  • Killer Robot
  • Mooks: The playable one is not in the game, but several models working as cannon fodder.

Known outside Japan as Ginzu the Ninja


Known outside Japan as Mack the Knife

    From Dino Crisis 


    From Final Fight 


  • But Not Too Foreign: To either the Japanese or the American fanbase. His nationality was listed as Japanese in Final Fight, but was changed to American since the Street Fighter Alpha series, implying that he became a naturalized citizen at some point.
  • The Comically Serious: As evidenced by his response to Janga calling him a pain in the ass.
    "A pain in the ass? Such things are irrelevant in battle."

    From Lost Worlds 

Unknown Soldiers 1P & 2P

  • Assist Character / Combining Mecha: The Mobilsuits from Side Arms: Hyper Dyne serve them as support characters.
  • Continuity Nod: There are a few references to Bios, the Big Bad from their origin game, in the game. They were in the middle of fighting him just when they were yanked into the Namco X Capcom plot, actually.
  • Cool Shades: Both sports some nice shades.
  • The Gunslinger: Both use fierarms as their main weaponry.
  • Humongous Mecha: Both Mobilsuits combine into one during their Multiple Assault with Sylphie.
  • Never Given a Name: Both have never been given any names, and have went on without one their whole life. They don't really mind or care, and tell the others to call them whenever they want. Sylphie is the one to christen them "Unknown Super Soldiers". Felicia attempts to name them, but after hearing her attempt they politely declined.
  • More Dakka: They use submachine guns to attack.
  • Salt and Pepper: 1P is white, 2P is black.
  • Super Soldiers


  • Accidental Pervert: She comes out as this in her inner mologue following MOMO making use of her skills:
    "High-level surveillance abilities... Ahhh... I don't care if it's wrong... I so desperately want her... abilities..."
  • Arms Dealer
  • Cosplay: Aside from possessing an arsenal consisting of various weapons and items from Capcom arcade games, she also can dress up as (and copy the techniques of) four other Capcom females: Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike's Makoto, Michelle Heart from Legendary Wings, Linn Kurosawa from Alien vs. Predator (Capcom), and Mai-Ling from Red Earth. She also gets to sell two Magical Girl costumes to MOMO (one for a Rare Hunter skill, the other for a Limit Break).
  • Dungeon Shop: Just like in her original game, one has to wonder just how Sylphie was able to set up a shop that magically raises from beneath the ground just as the party arrives…
  • Greed: She's ultimately good, but her "business side" tends to slip up plenty of time when she talks.
  • Humongous Mecha: "Borrowed" Jin's Blodia for this game.
  • Infinity+1 Equipment: The dress she makes available for 9999 G before starting the final chapter is this, as it raises all stats by 25.
  • Lethal Joke Character: Nothing about her is openly badass. She's not even an active party character most of the time. Yet the nature of her shop and everything in it indicates that she in some ways may be among the most powerful characters in the game. Coupled with an ability that allows her to pick money on the map, a large MP pool, and is capable of doing a 3-hit branch up, and you have one of the best characters of the game.
  • Shout-Out: As stated above, her movelist harkens back to several Capcom games of past, such as Magic Sword: Heroic Fantasy, Bionic Commando and Black Tiger.
  • True Blue Femininity

    From Ghosts 'n Goblins 




  • Belly Mouth: Much like Astaroth.
  • One-Winged Angel: He's much stronger than Astaroth.
  • Split-Personality Takeover: Nebiroth was created when Astaroth's soul was split into two, a punishment he suffered after losing to Arthur in the past. When he's killed, Nebiroth takes over his body entirely.

Red Arremer Joker

  • Continuity Nod: Plenty of hints are thrown throughout the game about Joker being the Red Arremer Firebrand from the Gargoyle's Quest series, more specifically the protagonist of the third game, Demon's Crest.
  • Defector from Decadence: Seeing the chaotic state of the Demon Village and the bad guy's side, which reminded him of the chaos back during the "War of the Crest", Joker decides to abandon his duties, even if it meant "living in disgrace", and die fighting Arthur and the good guys in order to test their strenght and see if they could restore balance to all worlds.
  • The Dragon: To Astaroth, to the point he refuses to assist Nebiroth once he takes over.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: Anyone want to question the badassery of the big red gargoyle?
  • The Leader: He's the leader of all Red Arremers forming the Makai Village's army.
  • Noble Demon
  • Playing with Fire
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: A long time ago, he fought in the "War of the Crest" (a reference to Demon's Crest) for the sake of the Makai Village.
  • Villainous Counterpart: To Kurino; a former "pawn" type who rose up the ranks.
  • Winged Humanoid: Gargoyle-style wings.
  • Worthy Opponent: Seems to regard Arthur as this.

    From Mega Man Legends 

Rock Volnutt / Rockman Trigger

Known outside Japan as Mega Man Volnutt / Mega Man Trigger

  • Arm Cannon: Naturally but in this case it's part of his armor instead of his arm.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: His past as Rockman Trigger is strongly hinted at by Juno here.
  • Energy Weapon: The Shining Laser is his most powerful weapon, able to rapidly deplete any opponent's health in seconds (if they let him hold still to aim it).
  • Multi-Ranged Master: His arsenal of weapons is enormous, including a variety of bomb and missile launchers, lasers, and energy projectiles. His Blade Arm even allows him to fire Sword Beams.
  • Mr. Fanservice: A boyish version. This explains his status as the Fandom Bycicle by the Legends fandom.
  • Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: He is the only Rockman incarnation who doesn't wear a helmet by default.
  • Love Triangle: With Roll and Tron. He's the Archie to Roll's Betty and Tron's Veronica.
    • Oblivious to Love: He is oblivious of any affections directed towards him by any of the female characters.
  • Macross Missile Massacre: He can do this with the fully upgraded Active Buster.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He was found sealed in a ruin, so it's hard to tell how old Volnutt really is. Juno hints at this by referring to him with the name Trigger.
  • Ridiculously Human Robot: Like other characters in his series it's hard to draw the line between human and robot with him, as Cyborgs are commonplace, but he mostly leans to the latter.
  • Swiss Army Appendage: While his right arm is always equipped with his handy Mega Buster, his left arm can be fitted with a greater variety of attachments.
  • Trauma-Induced Amnesia

Roll Caskett

Tron Bonne

  • Anime Hair: Not the most out-there in this game but it's still pretty silly.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Veronica to Roll's Betty towards Rock.
  • Breakout Character: Along with Rock himself, she's the character everyone knows. She got her own spinoff for a reason.
  • Distressed Damsel: Despite her Gesellschaft getting into tough shape, this is averted thanks to her Kobuns as well as, oddly enough, the Space Policewomen assigned to arrest her.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Roll, as the weapons expert of the Bonnes who builds and pilots their robots.
  • Loveable Rogue: She's very likeable for a pirate.
  • Punny Name: If you're going by the Japanese pronunciation of her last name as "Bone", that is. Somewhat fitting, considering her series' habit of naming its various characters after musical terms and instruments.
  • Teen Genius: She may be a teenager, but she has the skills to build and repair robots the size of houses.
  • Tsundere: Normally very hot-tempered and angry, but she has a soft side that comes out sometimes. Mostly for Rock, of course.
  • Team Mom: For the Kobuns.
  • Villain Protagonist: Just so we don't forget that she's still a notorious pirate, her introduction to the story as well as Hiromi and Masuyo's is them trying to arrest her.
  • Villainesses Want Heroes: She wants Rock Volnutt.


Known outside Japan as Servbots

Rockman Juno

Known outside Japan as Mega Man Juno

  • Affably Evil: Unfailingly polite and courteous to both friends and foes alike, casually tries to remind Rock of his Mysterious Past. Treats plans for universal chaos and mass genocide like minor gimmicks to pass the time.
  • Captain Ersatz: Juno reminds some players of Xelloss from the Slayers series, from the perpetually closed eyes to the creepy carefree smile. Both characters are also voiced by Akira Ishida.
  • Eyes Always Shut: That said, they do change shape with his expressions when closed.
  • Graceful Loser: When he falls to Rock and Roll in chapter 44, he accepts his defeat gracefully, commenting on how he lost to Trigger again before going kaboom.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Not for the entire game, because he's only one of many such serious villains here, but he is this for Rock and Roll's storyline, as Rock gets considerably darker around Juno due to the hidden memories of Rock's time as Trigger.
  • Floating Limbs
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is a pink-violet color.

The Grandmaster

  • BFG: Favors a flamethrower with a mounted missile launcher as his main weapon.
  • The Faceless: He's always seen with his mask/visor on.
  • Flight: Via thrusters on his back.
  • Fragile Speedster: Solo moves really fast and has a lot of firepower... but dies in 3 hits.
