The Creators

    Sōta Mizushino 

Sōta Mizushino

Voiced by: Daiki Yamashita

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sota_mizushino_anime.png

The male protagonist. Sōta is an Ordinary High-School Student whose life is changed forever when fictional characters from several media begin appearing in the real world. He has a mysterious connection to the Military Uniform Princess, that leads him to be caught in the middle of the crisis.


  • Action Survivor: Since he is not a superpowered fighter like the Creations or even a skilled Creator, all Sota can do is run away from fights and hope his friends can solve the crisis at hand.
  • Ascended Fanboy: Subverted. Sota becomes a friend of the characters of his favorite works and participates with them in the adventures. Averted after he figures out who the Military Uniform Princess is and figures out why everything is happening. It turns into his worst nightmare.
  • The Atoner: One of his motivations towards the end of the story. He wants to help stop Altair because the whole mess happened as a result of him indirectly causing Setsuna's suicide. He gets to redeem himself at the end of the series when he gets Magane's help to bring Setsuna back, giving Altair and Setsuna the chance to get the closure they both needed and leave the real world together to live happily ever after in another world created just for the two of them. Sota tearfully admits all he hopes for is that he got to make up for what he did to Setsuna.
  • Audience Surrogate: An ordinary teenager, fond of modern Japanese pop culture and dreaming to create with his work based on his favorite works. He even lampshades it in his opening narration. Though his very complicated relationship with Altair and Setsuna averts this.
    Sōta: I might be you. Or I might not be. But I'm sure I'm somewhere close to you.
  • Be as Unhelpful as Possible: He figured out really early on who the Military Uniform Princess and her Creator really were, yet when asked about it, he says nothing, leaving it to the others to figure it out themselves later on. The fact that his own connection to the both of them goes deep, might have something to do with it.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: He tries a few times, but he cant bring himself to tell his friends about his past and problems. His first attempt to tell Meteora is painful to watch. This ends up hurting everyone in the long run. Even when he was convinced to tell Mamika about Altair's backstory, Magane says he left out a few important details. He tells Meteora eventually, if only to make things easier on them.
  • Classical Anti-Hero: He starts the series with low self-esteem, is more interested in anime and video games than on the real world and is burdened with the guilt of indirectly causing his best friend's suicide. His main character arc is about overcoming these flaws and improving himself.
  • Connected All Along: He remembers Military Uniform Princess as the last Creation of his friend Setsuna Shimazaki, before her suicide.
  • Cutting the Knot: His solution to stopping Altair. While everyone else is trying (and failing) to come up with convoluted ways of countering Altair's every-growing Story-Breaker Power, Sota decides to simply give Altair something even more important to her than revenge; to be reunited with her Creator, Setsuna, thereby taking away any reason for Altair to destroy the world.
  • Dark Secret: His Jerkass behavior towards Setsuna when he got jealous of her creative talent. He believes that betraying his friend in this way was the last straw in her crossing the Despair Event Horizon, resulting in her deciding to commit suicide. He backs out of telling Meteora after learning she already knew about Altair, and it's implied he glossed over a few things when he told Mamika by what Magane says to him after stalking Sota around town. Ironically, this gets Mamika killed. After learning this he finally breaks down and tells Meteora..
  • Distressed Dude: Selesia has to save him when Military Uniform Princess attacks him during their fight.
  • Go Through Me: He forces Aliceteria to kill him to get to Meteora, and he would've died if Meteora didn't move to take the hit instead.
  • Grew a Spine: After his Trauma Conga Line, Sota was willing to die for Meteora to protect her from Aliceteria in episode 10 and would have, if Meteora hadn't thrown him out of the way.
  • Heroic Bystander: Not only does he attempt to protect Meteora from Aliceteria's attack, he even tries to appeal to the latter's better nature.
  • I Let Gwen Stacy Die: The deaths of Shimazaki and Mamika weigh heavily on his conscience.
  • Innocently Insensitive: After he convinces Selesia that she's a fictional character in an anime, he begins excitedly telling her how much he loves her show, not noticing she's having a major existential crisis right in front of him. She has to hold up her hand and all but say "Can you just give me a minute here..." before he stops. In his defense, he was almost as shocked as she was.
  • It's All My Fault: Sota couldn't prevent Setsuna's suicide because he was both paralyzed by the fear that reaching out might make things worse and deep down actually feeling happy that she was getting flak online, much to his own disgust. For this, he felt that he was responsible for her death. The pain keeps him from telling his friends about it. Then, his well-intentioned conversation with Mamika indirectly gets her killed.
  • Keeping Secrets Sucks: Oh does it ever. A good bit of the problems the good guys face come from directly from Sota not telling his friends about his past.
  • Muggle Best Friend: Although Sota can "create" worlds as a Creator, as a human from our world, he is this in relation to his "fictional characters" friends.
  • My Greatest Failure: Denying Setsuna his support at the time she needed him the most and, to his own horror, taking satisfaction from her online harassment. Also, indirectly causing Mamika's death when he tried to make things right.
  • Nervous Wreck: Downplayed. Normally, Sota is withdrawn and keeps his temper in check but mentioning Setsuna or Mamika will send him into a breakdown.
  • Ordinary High-School Student: At least that's how his story starts.
  • Otaku: A huge fan of animes and video games. He even plans to make his own series someday, and in the ending, he submits a novel for a young writer award.
  • The Resenter: Sota was good friends with Setsuna, until she was able to win great popularity because of her talent for drawing while Sota's art barely got any attention. Feeling left behind, Sota grew jealous and resentful of Setsuna for her success and stopped communicating with her, even when he realized she was being accused of plagiarism and harshly criticized for it. To his own horror, the constant harassment Shimazaki faced online made him feel better about his own shortcomings.
  • Supporting Protagonist: Sota straight-up admits in the beginning that the story is not about him, even if he is the main character. However, it is his plan that finally stops Altair.
  • Talking the Monster to Death: He tries this on Aliceteria by explaining the people of the real world don't read her story because they find her suffering amusing, but because they sympathize with her pain and want to see her overcome those challenges. She's too far gone at that point for it to work. Once she calms down, however, Sota's words do get through her enough for her to talk things out with her creator and make peace with him.
  • Trapped in TV Land: He's pulled into an episode of Elemental Symphony of Vogelchevalier at the beginning of the first episode, but returns to reality after a few minutes.
  • Unknown Rival: He was incredibly jealous of Setsuna, but because of their friendly relations, he simply stopped communicating with her and always hid his feelings.
  • Unfazed Everyman: Despite how the turn of events played out, he remains fairly calm and collected. The fact that he's already suffering through extreme personal trauma and is overwhelmed with guilt before getting sucked into an anime is why he acts this way.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom:
    • Sota is technically responsible for all the trouble in the story for one mistake in his past. By giving his friend Setsuna the cold shoulder at the time of her depression, Sota inadvertently pushed her further into the Despair Event Horizon, resulting in Setsuna committing suicide and her creation Altair seeking revenge against the world.
    • He also inadvertently triggered a very bad development near the end of the first half. He told Mamika the truth about Altair and Setsuna. As a result, Mamika confronted Altair all alone in an attempt to sympathize with her. This got Mamika killed and due to Aliceteria going after the wrong person, Meteora almost gets killed too.
  • Write Who You Know: In-Universe. He created Setsuna as a character in the story for the Elimination Chamber Festival. This actually allows him to solve everything by inserting his character in the final battle via Magane's power so Setsuna can convince Altair to stop.
  • Your Approval Fills Me with Shame: Magane compliments him on his actions indirectly leading to two peoples' deaths, complimenting him on "murdering" them and admiring his growing body count. By the time she's finished Sota is catatonic on the ground. This would've caused him to go over the Despair Event Horizon if Yuuya and Meteora hadn't shown up when they did.

    Takashi Matsubara 

Takashi Matsubara (real name: Takeshi Ohsawa)

Voiced by: Katsuyuki Konishi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/takashi_matsubara_anime.png

Light novel author and Vogelchevalier's Creator.


  • Ascended Fanboy: It seems that he is very pleased with the news that Rui Kanoya also got into the real world, taking his mecha along with him... at least initially, the next episode clarifies and subverts it instead, as he hasn't actually managed to watch the show yet and isn't aware of his personality at all. Also strangely played with in that he's a Ascended Fanboy of his own novel series due to actually getting to meet the real Selesia he created. Despite their arguing he starts to view her as his child and enjoys her company.
  • Cool Old Guy: More middle aged, but he's well liked by all of the younger members of the cast and is extremely friendly. Even Yuuya, who usually doesn't get along with old guys, thinks he's cool.
  • Foil: Compared to the more accepting and relaxed Sota, Matsubara is understandably confused and freaked out about fictional characters suddenly coming to life. He's also much more confident in his abilities as a writer, and realizes that you can't afford to care about making a story that absolutely everyone will enjoy since that's impossible. This contrasts heavily with Sota's implied perfectionism in his creating, as well as his lack of confidence that he can actually make something good at all
  • Hidden Depths: Normal and lame he maybe, but Matsubara is quite capable of designing characters with strong personality and plotting an interesting story for his Light Novel. He is also shown to care about his "daughter" Selesia, even though he just met the real her. This is best shown in #10 where he manages to give Selesia a "power-up" because he doesn't want her defeated by Altair, a sketch of an unknown kid.
    • When Selesia is recovering the hospital after her battle with Aliceteria, he admits to her he isn't just writing her story because it's fun. Deep down, he wants to be remembered for doing something meaningful with his life.
  • Like a Daughter to Me: As her creator, he thinks of Selesia as his daughter.
  • Most Writers Are Writers: Takashi is used the most often out of all the creators by Re:Creators itself to convey wisdom to the rest of the cast (and audience) that a long time successful writer should have, due to his in-universe experience and fame.
  • Not So Above It All: While not a hardass or unlikable guy or anything of the sort, he does try to be reasonable for the most part... up until Yuuya's creator casually dismisses him in a meeting, which led to Yuuya attacking his Creator and all that Matsubara was willing to do was to simply to tell him not to do anything to his head or right hand. Partially justified as it's hinted several times that something happened in the past at a party to make Takashi dislike him.
  • Papa Wolf: He sees himself as Selesia's father and he shows that he is ready to rush into the thick of the battle for her and then save her life by giving her a brief power up.
  • Parental Substitute: Over time, he becomes this for Selesia, acting as her father.
  • Pervert Dad: Couldn't keep himself from ogling Selesia when they first met, and in the ending theme he's openly ogling the bikini-clad Selesia. Afterwards he finds out he's basically her father so it doesn't happen again.

    Marine 

Marine (real name: Ayano Koura)

Voiced by: Hisako Kanemoto

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marine_anime.png

The illustrator of Vogelchevalier's light novel.


  • Cat Smile: Integrated in most of her facial expressions.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Sota, offering him counsel in how to become a better Creator.
  • Covert Pervert: The final episode reveals that Marine is a closet Shotacon. She even asks Masaaki as Rui is about to return to his world to make a fanservice episode so that she can see him in skimpy clothes.
  • Genki Girl: Becomes friends really fast with Selesia and Meteora.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: She has a plush rabbit called "Salmon".
  • Humble Hero: She believes her work to be inferior to other artists and is as eager to check out Sōta's own drawings as if he were a fellow professional.
  • Otaku: It pays off to be one, given her job.
  • Otaku Surrogate: Her appearance is a rather typical image of fujoshi in anime and manga, not to mention the artist's work and her interest in yuri.
  • Pen Name: "Marine" is her artist name; her real name is Ayano Koura. Apparently even Takashi Matsubara who worked on the same project didn't know her real name before Episode 5.
  • Yuri Fan: She was pretty excited by the idea of Selesia and Meteora accidentally kissing during a minor background scene. She’s also a Yaoi Fan most likely, what with her excited at Yuuya and Sho’s bromance-laden dialogue.

    Masaaki Nakanogane 

Masaaki Nakanogane

Voiced by: Ryō Sugisaki

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/masaaki_nakanogane_anime.png

The screenplay and scenario writer for the anime Infinite Divine Machine Mono Magia.


  • Geek Physiques: The fat type. Yuuya makes fun of him for it.
  • Innocently Insensitive: He casually provides exposition of Hikayu's character, despite the distress it causes the poor girl. He gets hit by Selesia for it.
  • Mistaken For Crazy: In a pretty Genre Blind move for an anime writer, he saw fit to tell his friends he had met his character. He received references for six different psychologists for his trouble.
  • Old Friend: To Matsubara. They both keep inform each other about their current projects.
  • Spotting the Thread: He ultimately finds a valid way to confirm Military Uniform Princess' identity: going to a website about new and coming artists that submit their works to the public.

    Aki Kikuchihara 

Aki Kikuchihara

Voiced by: Ayumi Tsunematsu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aki_kikuchihara_anime.png

A government official that interrogates the protagonists after the Creations appear in the real world. She then foresee the government project to defeat Altair and save the world.


  • Beware the Nice Ones: Always formal, polite and calm. That doesn't stop her from using her Scary Shiny Glasses to calmly stop what was pretty much an attempted sexual assault in a normal, even-tempered voice that had "disobey me and I will END YOU" as its subtext.
  • The Comically Serious: After fifteen episodes of being merely very professional and even-tempered, she veered right into this when she kept talking in a calm, serious, formal and coherent fashion for the better part of a rant even after drinking herself into nigh-oblivion.
  • Foreshadowing: Her cutesy phone wallpaper becomes this in Chapter 22, when she decides to quit her government job and become an author.
  • In Vino Veritas: Drank a lot of what she thought was oolong tea. This causes her to tear the writers a new one for how difficult they were to manage. True to form, even while hammered, she described her reasoning formally, in full, coherent and reasonable detail and only raised her voice twice.
  • Not So Above It All: In contrast to Kikuchihara's generally serious demeanor, her phone's wallpaper is a picture of a cute hamster.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: After hearing the protagonists' case, she agrees to help them stop Military Uniform Princess. She even helps them obtain legal status so they can be recognized as legal citizens.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: She stopped Onishi's antics by slamming her hand on a center table and glaring at him. All without raising her voice or talking in a tone any less than polite and measured.
  • The Stoic: Loses only to Shunma Suruga in that department, and then only after drinking quite a lot.

    Yuna "Setsuna" Shimazaki 

Yuna "Setsuna" Shimazaki

Voiced by: Ayaka Ohashi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/setsuna_shimazaki_anime.png

The girl who commits suicide in the beginning of the series. She was a friend of Sota, but they drifted apart towards the end of her life.


  • Ambiguous Situation: In the final episode, while visiting Setsuna's grave with Sota, Meteora postulates that Sota may have actually succeeded in bringing the real Setsuna Back from the Dead, rather than making a Creation that approximated Setsuna's personality, but decides not to pursue this theory, leaving the "resurrected" Setsuna's exact nature up to the viewer's interpretation.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Flashbacks show multiple ShipTease moments between her and Sota, namely their first meeting at a convention. Likewise, her reunion with Altair is positively loaded with romantic subtext.
  • Back from the Dead: Played with. This trope initially seems to be averted when the Creators state that resurrecting the dead was impossible, thus the Setsuna that was manifested in the Elimination Chamber Festival was not the actual person, but rather a Creation that very closely approximated her personality based on Sota's memories of her, with Magane's powers eliminating the need for the audience to accept this development. Later, while visiting Setsuna's grave with Sota, Meteora initially suggests that the manifested Setsuna was the actual person instead, fully resurrected via Magane's powers, but stops before making any substantial headway into the theory, leaving her exact nature ambiguous.
  • Death by Origin Story: The story begins with her suicide.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Crossed it before her suicide, because online harassment of her works. Getting the cold shoulder from her best friend had a hand in pushing her towards it.
  • Driven to Suicide: She jumps under the train when Sota ambiguously refuses to communicate with her.
  • Godzilla Threshold: She is brought into existence as a Creation after all other attempts to stop Altair have failed and the Creators reason that they have nothing more to lose.
  • Implied Love Interest:
    • To Sota. He seemed very nervous and agitated during the one time they met in person, but it's ambiguous whether it's due to having a crush on her or he simply was shy about being around a girl, particularly a cute and talented one. Because of his envy driving Sota away from Setsuna, their relationship didn't develop into something more and Setsuna's tragic death became a major source of self-loathing for Sota. Sota wanted to make up for ruining their friendship and abandoning her out of petty envy, but whether there could have been romantic feelings between the two is open to interpretation.
    • Also to Altair. It's fairly obvious that Altair holds some very intense attachment to Setsuna, and it's shown in Episode 21 that whatever those feelings might be, Setuna does reciprocate them.
  • Interrupted Suicide: She tries to repeat her own suicide when she realizes she cannot exist in the real world. Altair saves her and creates a world where the two can live happily ever after.
  • Meganekko: She was a cute and shy girl with glasses. Although it is revealed that she got the glasses from Sota.
  • Only Friend: She and Sota were so for each other until their fallout.
  • Parent ex Machina: Sota brings Setsuna back to life using a literal Deus ex Machina provided by Magane so she can fix everything by talking Altair out of her goal of destroying the world, because Altair would never listen to anyone but her own Creator. Sota succeeded.
  • Pen Name: Setsuna. Her real name is Yuna Shimazaki.
  • Plot-Triggering Death: Her death sets the events of the series into motion, causing Altair's hatred towards humanity and leaving Sota with extreme self-loathing.
  • Posthumous Character: She dies at the start of the first episode. We get to know about her only through flashbacks of characters that knew her.
  • Shrinking Violet: She was a shy, quiet girl.
  • Walking Spoiler: Almost no information about Setsuna and her exact influence on the story is shown to the audience for most of the series.

    Shunma Suruga 

Shunma Suruga (real name: Chika Ōsawa)

Voiced by: Minako Kotobuki

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shunma_suruga_anime.png

Author of the manga series Code:Babylon.


  • Badass Pacifist: She faces Blitz Talker, a man twice her size and holding a gun, with her usual cool demeanor and calm dignity. She does not for one moment raise her voice, even when shot. And she tops it off by giving Blitz his daughter back.
  • Batman Gambit: She pulls off one so well, she even says what her target is gonna say at the exact same time. To be fair, she created Blitz, so she knows exactly how he's gonna react, right down to how he would respond to seeing his daughter.
  • Beauty Mark: She has one on the left side of her lip.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Her short hair goes well with her masculine appearance and personality.
  • Brutal Honesty: When Blitz asks her why did she make him kill his own daughter, she simply replies that it made for a better story.
  • Bulletproof Vest: She was wearing one, in case Blitz shoot her.
  • Cool Big Sis: While they are unrelated, she acts like this to Marine and, by extension, to Sota.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Even after getting shot in the stomach by Blitz, she doesn't lose her cool and claims that everything she did as an author was to please her readers. She doesn't excuse what she did to Blitz but she has no interest in letting him help Altair. Of course, it does help that she's wearing a bulletproof vest at the time.
  • Fantastically Indifferent: Capable of seeing characters do impossible things and keeping on working on her clipboard with the same nearly-bored face at the same time. Taken Up to Eleven when she keeps doing so while coming up with a plan to save the world.
  • Hair Decorations: She wears a headband.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: By her own admission, she spent many nights crying herself to sleep before creating Blitz. She even says she must be a horrible person for creating Blitz's world for the sake of entertainment.
  • The Idiot from Osaka: Averted with extreme prejudice; she has the accent, but is the one that came up with a plan to save the world and is among the smartest of the cast.
  • I Have Your Wife: She easily deconstructs Blitz's motivations on helping Altair by giving him what he always wanted... a chance to reunite with his revived daughter.
  • Kansai Regional Accent: She speaks in Kansai dialect.
  • Mutual Envy: Marine is jealous of the level of Suruga's talent in drawing and believes that her artistic level is much lower than hers, but she does not know that in fact Suruga thinks she is drawing much worse and that Marine is much better artist than she is.
  • Only Sane Woman: Downplayed, but still present. Shunma seems to be the most professional and even-tempered of all creators.
  • Pet the Dog: Suruga's bargaining chip on getting Blitz's assistance to defeat Altair? Erina, safe and sound.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Apparently, she creates, talks and acts in such a way that anyone that hasn't met her assumes she is a dude.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Often seen smoking to show off her cool-headed attitude.
  • The Stoic: Her face has the same bored expression nearly all the time. The woman allows herself a light smile for two seconds or so some five minutes after coming up with a plan to save the world, though.

    Gai Takarada 

Gai Takarada (real name: Naoya Takarada)

Voiced by: Jun'ichi Yanagita

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gai_takarada_anime.png

The author of manga series Aliceteria of the Scarlet. He was locked away by Aliceteria out of her anger towards him (due to the fact that her cruel world is just entertainment) until Sōta expressed his feelings towards her story. After being released by Aliceteria, he joins the effort to defeat Altair.


  • Exhausted Eye Bags: Starts to sport these after Alicetaria's death, showing the emotional toil it has had on him.
  • Manly Tears: He cries these when Aliceteria is killed by Altair.
  • Not So Different: From Matsubara, as they endured the deaths of their "daughters". They even decide to work together in some later project.

    Nishio Ōnishi 

Nishio Ōnishi

Voiced by: Jun Fukushima

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nishio_onishi_anime.png

Author of The Milky Way of a Starry Sky, an X-rated visual novel.


  • Abhorrent Admirer: To, well, all female creations.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parent: Hikayu clearly does not like that her "father" is a pervert Otaku, who tries to seduce her female friends.
  • Animal Motifs: Rodents, with him highly resembling a mixture between a rat, hamster and mouse in his appearance.
  • Ascended Fanboy: Subverted. Like Sota, he gets to meet beautiful and interesting anime characters. Unlike Sota, he does not have the baggage. Also unlike Sota, his response to meeting said characters is to grope and propose to them...
  • Asian Buck Teeth: He has buck teeth and he's meant to be an unfortunate stereotype of the most negative aspects of modern Japanese culture.
  • Badass Boast: He outright says that, since he was the one that created Hikayu, there is no way her part on saving the world won't work. He's later forced to eat his words after Altair effortlessly strips Hikayu of the powers he gave her.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He delivers on the aforementioned Badass Boast and his face makes it abundantly clear he had no doubt whatsoever he would; say what you will about the man, he's good at what he does.
  • Fan Disservice: In the Hot Springs Episode, where we see his unfit body. Lampshaded by Kanoya.
  • Foil: First of all to Sota. While Sota is fond of Japanese pop culture for interesting stories, messages and entertainment, Nishio is a crazed fetishist who sees attractive characters only as sexual objects. And while Sota has a complicated relationship with the world of anime involving both a deep respect and some serious trauma, Onishi's, at least at first sight, is as shallow and straightforward a relationship as it gets.
  • Gonk: His physical appearance, resembling a rodent's, is about as unpleasant as his personality.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite his... less-than-ideal introduction, he later proves himself to be a good Creator and a reliable friend. He even earns some measure of Hikayu's respect for this.
  • Incest Subtext: Although Hikayu is not his real daughter, his "interest" to her is used to create this impression and show how disgusting he is. He even states that he "fell into his dreams," when Selesia declares that he can not seduce Hikayu, as now "she is like a daughter to him."
  • Otaku: He is an acceptable target for depicting bad otaku features.
  • Pervert Dad: After a fashion. Hikayu Hoshikawa is his creation and, thus, his "daughter", after all.
  • Pet the Dog: Remembers Hoshikawa's Dark and Troubled Past down to the chapter number. It must mean a lot for him.
  • The Pollyanna: If Onishi has a quality, it's being very optimistic; he seems to sincerely believe saving the world will be a walk in the park.
  • Repetitive Name: Nishio Ōnishi
  • Verbal Tic: In the original Japanese, he repeats short or simple words for emphasis.

The Creations

    Military Uniform Princess 

Altair

Voiced by: Aki Toyosaki

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/altair_anime.png
A riot is exactly what I wished for, but the symphony would not sound harmonious without the correct headcount. After all, a glorious song requires the presence of all players involved.

A mysterious girl who travels to the real world to get revenge for her Creator, gathering the other Creations to join her cause. She also recognizes and seems connected to Sōta.


  • Animal Motifs: She has a bird symbol on her uniform. Her real name, Altair, is the name of the largest star in the Aquila constellation, which represents the bird that carries the thunderbolts of Zeus in Greek myth.
  • Antagonist Abilities: With the ridiculous amount of powers she possesses, it would appear she has no concept of "fighting fair." If not for her Drama-Preserving Handicap, the protagonists would have no chance to win.
  • Anti-Villain: She makes no secret about her status as a villain. Meteora suspects that her motivation is likely to be personal. It's revealed that she is hell-bent on destroying all of existence to avenge her Creator, who committed suicide in the prologue, likely out of despair.
  • Attack Reflector: Fourteenth Movement of the Cosmos: "The Vicissitudes of Fortune" reverses the cause and effect of an action. In a fight, Altair can use it against an attacking opponent to redirect the damage from the attack back at said opponent, whilst remaining unharmed herself.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: In a sense. Altair may have not succeeded in destroying the real world, but she still got everything she ever wanted. She finally met her Creator, saved her from dying a second time and now gets to live happily ever after in a world created just for the two of them. Not to mention the heroes failed miserably in even getting close to defeating her in battle.
  • Barehanded Blade Block: Catches Vogelchevalier's sword with just her fingers in Episode 18.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Altair will not accept any sympathy for herself or her creator, Setsuna Shimazaki. The instant Mamika mentions 'saving' her and Setsuna, she responds by skewering the poor girl with her Storm of Blades.
    • She's also very perturbed and upset at the sight of Sirius. Being the last Creation of Setsuna, her manifestation in the Elimination Chamber Festival by the Creators is seen by Altair as a calculated insult to her Creator's memory.
  • Big Bad: The closest thing the series has to one, anyway. She is the one responsible for summoning the other Creations into the real world, threatening to destroy its very foundations.
  • Big Damn Reunion: One with Setsuna in the 21st episode.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Invokes this in episode 19 by directly addressing the audience watching the broadcasted final battle.
  • Can't Kill You, Still Need You:
    • Despite Altair putting Selesia in a Headlock of Dominance and admitting that she would very much like to kill the latter right then and there, she doesn't. Altair states that it would destroy the audience's suspension of belief for a combatant to die so early in the battle, and thus derive her of the acceptance she needs to increase her powers.
    • After she removes Hikayu's powers, Yuuya flat-out asks her why she doesn't simply De-Power the other Creations or erase them from existence. Meteora rationalizes that Altair has turned the Elimination Chamber Festival into her own personal story, and still needs the other Creations to play the roles of supporting characters in order to gain more acceptance from the audience.
  • Cold Ham: Talks in an over-the-top way without raising her voice and sometimes gestures dramatically, such as her exaggerated bow at the beginning of the Elimination Chamber Festival. That is, unless somebody hits her Berserk Button.
  • Combo Platter Powers: The Princess' abilities is almost limitless - Flight and Storm of Blades aside, she possesses an entire set of Reality Warper abilities called "Movements of the Cosmos." Because multiple Creators online have been inspired by Setsuna's original video of Altair to create their own versions of the character, each of them has added more powers and abilities for her. In Episode 15, she reveals that more and more powers are being added to her repertoire each day, some of which she is yet unaware of.
  • Cool Gun: Her weapon Holopsicon (which seems to be modelled after a real-life Russian PPSh-41 submachine gun). She only uses the gun to perform her more powerful abilities - namely, her Movements of the Cosmos. In order to execute them, she wields the gun as a violin and then uses one of her sabers as a bow.
  • De-Power: Thirteenth Movement of the Cosmos: "Outline Origin" allows Altair to cancel the effects of Plot Twists and revert things to the state they were prior to the implementation of that plot twist. Because the power augmentations the Creators gave to the Creations in preparation for the Elimination Chamber Festival count as "plot twists", given that they facilitate the premise of the Crisis Crossover in the Festival, Altair can use this ability to strip other Creations of those augmentations.
  • Disintegrator Ray: In the first episode, the Princess conjures a sphere-shaped distortion around her. They are powerful enough to delete Selesia's mecha out of existence.
    • Episode 20 reveals this ability to be the Ninth Movement of the Cosmos; "Fate Restoration." The move simply erases the plot, meaning she can erase the characteristics of any character it hits. She does this to cripple Sho from further combat.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": She doesn't seem to like it when someone calls her by her real name. The moment Mamika mentions the name Altair, she drops her usual Psychotic Smirk.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: She hates people who think they can sympathize with her. Mamika learns this the hard way during their confrontation in Episode 8.
  • Drama-Preserving Handicap: Overuse of her "Movements of the Cosmos" threatens to erase her from existence, because she is not yet powerful enough to fully delete physical laws of the real world. This ends up being eliminated once she enters the Elimination Chamber due to her massive acceptance.
  • Evil Albino: She gives this effect with her white hair, red eyes and role as main villain.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Look at her quote above. She almost always speaks with a polite, yet dramatic choice of words that gives off this vibe. Even during her Motive Rant, she still speaks with mostly polite Japanese (Keigo) up until she decides to kill Mamika.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Her pupils are square-shaped.
  • Expy: It's not immediately obvious since they don't look much alike at all, but the show's creators have admitted that Black★Rock Shooter was a heavy influence on Altair's backstory. Both are Original Characters who took the Internet by storm, have gone on multiple adventures across different realities and are heavily associated with stars. Not to mention that both of their stories had to do with losing a friend, though Altair's case is more permanent.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Although she tries to come off as polite and taciturn, her actions and secretive nature makes her come off as threatening rather than helpful. Even Yuuya and Magane, villains in their respective stories, can tell she is up to no good just by looking at her. Her brutal murder of Mamika is further proof of her insanity.
  • Flight: Not surprising, given she's seemingly a mage.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Went from being a powerless Original Character with no support and practically no character to her name save for that found in her music video, to being a reality-warping juggernaut essentially representing and weaponizing all of fandom itself.
  • Genre Savvy:
    • During the Elimination Chamber Festival, she is shown to have a better grasp on the concept of audience acceptance than Meteora, and deliberately manipulates the events of the ensuring fight to make sure the audience accepts her performance in the battle over that of the protagonists.
    • This is the reason she doesn't simply De-Power the other Creations or erase them from existence, despite becoming fully capable of such, as she needs their participation in the Festival to acquire said audience acceptance.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She sports twin tails.
  • Headlock of Dominance: After Selesia attempts to warp her away from the battlefield, she simply teleports into Vogelchevalier's cockpit and puts Selesia in this.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: This happens to her during the Elimination Chamber Festival, courtesy of Aliceteria. However, she switches on her Attack Reflector, causing the her opponent to feel the effects and damage of the attack, instead of herself.
  • Inexplicably Awesome: The show doesn't even try to explain how a random character from a random suicide artist could gain sentience, become real, drag other fictional characters into the real world and gain endless powers from every single incarnation of hers that other artists though up, enough to curb-stomp each one of those characters and possibly destroy the whole Earth.
  • Invincible Villain: Thanks to the vaguely-explained Holopsicon, she's pretty much unbeatable since this weapon gives her Reality Warper powers, near-omniscience and invulnerability, to the point that not even a Fantastic Nuke could harm her. Also, all the real-world fan-generated content of her add more and more abilities to her repertoire every day. The only reason why she hasn't curbstomped everyone and everything is that, by using her powers, she's fundamentally altering the physics of the real world, so abusing them could cause her to be deleted from existence and thus render her true goal unattainable. Because defeating her by force was beyond the means of the Creators, they instead had to bring an incarnation of Setsuna into the real word as a Creation to convince her to cease her plan to destroy reality.
  • Irony: In episode 19, just before depowering Hikayu, Altair mocks her, saying basically that Hikayu's new attacks don't work on her because they feel tacked on and the audience won't accept them. Remember, this is being said by the in-universe Villain Sue who pulls exceedingly broken abilities out of nowhere every minute and is somehow still adored by the public.
  • It's Personal: She hates the world in its entirety, particularly Sota for mistreating her creator and causing her to commit suicide.
  • Karma Houdini: Despite being directly or indirectly responsible for all the death and destruction that occurred in the real world due to her scheme to destroy it, as well as the deaths of any Creations, she ultimately gets a happy ending with Setsuna and does not receive any consequences for her actions. Given the circumstances, this was pretty much the only thing left that could stop her from destroying the world. Even though it worked, she still won in a different manner.
  • Laughing Mad: She lets out an absolutely demented laugh when Charon appears to take Selesia on.
  • Magic Knight: She is the ‘’most powerful character’’ in this series, what with her Flight, Storm of Blades, and Reality Warper abilities. She is also skilled with wielding her sabers in close combat, as her sword duel against Selesia shows early on.
  • Mask of Sanity: If her constant Psychotic Smirk is any indication, her mental state is questionable. She is actually an Omnicidal Maniac Straw Nihilist motivated solely by hatred and rage for the world, but she hides it well. However, her unstable behavior can be easily triggered when her creator is mentioned.
  • Memetic Badass: She weaponizes this, as fanworks that portray her as such are the source of her powers, several of which did not originate from her creator.
  • Mirror Match: Twentieth Movement of the Cosmos: "Factor Mimic" invokes this. The Princess uses it against Rui by creating a duplicate of Gigas Machina in Episode 10. Presumably, she can invoke this to any of the characters she's brought into the real world.
  • Moral Myopia: She can recognize any wrongs done to her and her Creator, but never the inverse.
  • Motive Rant:
    • Goes into one in her Villainous Breakdown in Episode 8, going on and on about how much she hates the entire world for rejecting her creator and driving her to suicide.
    Altair: "I will destroy everything. Destroy, destroy, and destroy more until this world disappears. That is the reason I'm standing here today."
    • She later gives another one to Aliceteria in Episode 19, containing much of the same points as the one she gave Mamika.
  • Mystical White Hair: A mysterious and extremely powerful fictional character brought to life.
  • Neck Lift: After she strips Hikayu of her powers as the latter was leaping towards her, she catches her hapless opponent in midair via this position.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: She literally pulls any exceedingly broken power she needs out of nowhere at the most convenient moment.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: So far, the Princess has not been damaged by anything the protagonists throw at her, mainly thanks to the defensive use of her Storm of Blades. She also survives Mamika's Magical Splash Flare in Episode 9, the same attack that devastated her entire hideout and its surroundings, and appears without a scratch in the next episode. Being impaled by Aliceteria's lance also fails to injure her, as she simply reflected the damage from the attack back at its progenitor.
  • No Name Given: Her name is not known early on, "Military Uniform Princess" is just a nickname used to describe her. Her real name is Altair and after it's revealed, it's started getting used openly.
  • Oh, Crap!: When she sees Sota for the first time. Several times when someone invokes Setsuna, and absolutely when she meets Creation Setsuna for the first time.
  • One-Man Army: She easily obliterates seven tanks and three fighter jets summoned and controlled by Meteora.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: She outright tells Mamika that she wants to destroy everyone and everything in this world.
  • The Omniscient: A relatively new power she revealed in Episode 15. Using it, she knows exactly what the heroes are up to and how they plan to stop her. She also uses it to keep tabs on the other Creations, easily figuring out who is currently allied with who. The end of the next episode reveals that she can also use this ability to spy on the protagonists, and thus easily figured out how they planned to stop her.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: She is generally polite and is always calm at nearly every situation she is in, only losing composure a few times and even then not completely. Altair's persona makes it much more surprising for Mamika when the latter confronted the former about her Revenge plot and her extremely nihilistic point-of-view... because Altair did not take it well at all.
  • Orcus On Her Throne: Despite her status as the Big Bad, the Princess doesn't really do much after Episode 3 onward, merely bidding her time in her hideout while the other characters carry on the conflict. Meteora speculates that this is because she is searching for, or preparing conditions to destroy the world completely; if she doesn't succeed in destroying "the rules of the world" in one-go, it's likely the world will "eject" her out of existence as it restores. This speculation turns out to be correct, as Altair nearly gets forcefully returned to her own story when she uses her Reality Warper powers too much.
  • Original Character: Her true identity. She even comes with all the perks of being a Web creation: her authors are every fan that's written a story for her in their lifetime.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: The world is threatened with destruction due to the fact that she drags fictional characters into reality, which violates the "logic" or "rules" of our world. And this is not even taking into account her personal firepower, as shown early on when she deletes a large mecha out of existence, and later effortlessly creates another giant mecha out of thin air.
  • Pet the Dog: She shows some sympathy to Blitz after hearing he had to kill his own daughter when she had been weaponized. She even holds him in a loving embrace and asks him to refrain from participating in the final battle.
  • Psychotic Smirk: She's almost always has a smile on her face, and it doesn't help make her look any more trustworthy. Selesia lampshades that it makes her impossible to trust. She drops it a few times, such as when seeing Sota for the first time in Episode 1 and during her confrontation against Mamika in Episode 8.
  • Put Them All Out of My Misery: Her creator was pushed into suicide by online harassment. Altair's goal is to take everything down with her to destroy the world that abandoned her creator.
  • Rage Against the Heavens: It's very clear that she wants to wage war against the people of the real world (i.e. authors), whom she calls "the gods of pleasure." Her Creator committed suicide in the prologue, denying her of the chance of meeting her. Knowing the circumstances around her death, Altair hates the world with passion and wants to destroy all of it.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes all the way to her feet.
  • Reality Warper: She somehow summons fictional characters from various fiction into the real world, complete with their abilities and personalities. She also displays the ability to annihilate physical objects out of existence as well as personal teleportation.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: During the Elimination Chamber Festival, she gives one to Aliceteria after fatally wounding the latter, attacking the notion that the former is a hero and main character. While this is the case in Aliceteria's source material, Altair points out that this is not her story, thus dismissing the former as a supporting character who can be killed off without much impact to the story as a whole.
  • Redemption Rejection: Violently rejects Mamika's offer to let go of her hatred against the world.
  • Replacement Goldfish: The end of Episode 15 suggests that Blitz sees her as this for his daughter.
  • Revenge Before Reason: She's so dedicated on "avenging" her dead Creator that she will stop at nothing to delete all of existence, which several characters point out as both nihilistic and absurd.
  • Rewriting Reality: Third Movement of the Cosmos: "Representation Exposition" seems to be this. She uses it to transform Selesia's sword into rose petals in Episode 10.
  • Say My Name: When she tries to save Creation!Setsuna from the train that killed her in the penultimate episode.
  • Slasher Smile: Fully graduates into this territory in Episode 10, namely after having duped Selesia into taking an almost fatal stab.
  • Spin to Deflect Stuff: She uses her Storm of Blades defensively in this manner, being capable of using this tactic to block both melee strikes and projectiles alike.
  • Stellar Name: Her real name "Altaïr" is the largest star in the Aquila constellation.
  • Storm of Blades: Her primary fighting style is to conjure up dozens of sabers and have them function as something akin to Attack Drone. The sabers levitate and attack at her will, and are capable of spinning around her to form makeshift defense strong enough to block sword strikes from Selesia's Humongous Mecha, flips a car going at her with full speed, and deflects Meteora's military-grade missiles.
  • Story-Breaker Power: Literally. The Holopsicon, which is powered by fanfiction of her, allows her to do pretty much anything at any time. This pretty much makes her invincible.
  • Straw Nihilist: Confirms herself as one in her Motive Rant to Mamika, saying how she hates her, everyone and their stories, and everything in this world. Destroying all of it is her only reason (aside from her Revenge plot) to exist.
  • Suicidal Cosmic Temper Tantrum: Her endgame though bringing in as many other characters as she can (because theoretically they will make the universe's laws of physics change, with catastrophic consequences upon the world).
  • Superpower Lottery: It's revealed that her more powerful Reality Warper abilities are performed through her Holopsicon. So far, it displays the ability to alter the existences of the Creations she has summoned into the world. With it, she can turn Selesia's sword into rose petals, and even creates a copy of Rui's Gigas Machina out of thin air. However, using this ability too much will interfere with the world's law, which endangers Altair herself.
  • Super Strength: She is strong enough to stop a sword strike from Selesia's Vogelchevalier with just two fingers, and also capable of using only those fingers to toss the mech a considerable distance away.
  • Surveillance as the Plot Demands: One application of her omniscience.
  • Sword and Gun: As a display of power during her battle with Selesia in Episode 1, she briefly wields one of her conjured sabers and her Holopsicon. Rather than use them conventionally though, she uses them as a bow and a violin respectively, conjuring a distortion that proceeds to deconstruct Selesia's Vogelchevalier into nothingness. Episode 10 shows that this is how the Princess activates her "Movements of the Cosmos" powers.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Her irises are red and blue.
  • Tragic Villain: All her evil actions were motivated out of loyalty and grief towards her deceased Creator. Even Blitz says that Altair's story is ultimately a tragedy.
  • Undying Loyalty: To her creator, Setsuna Shimazaki. To the point that avenging her is one half of her reason to exist.
  • Villainous Breakdown: She completely loses it when Mamika gives her a You Are Better Than You Think You Are speech, furiously ranting and screaming about how much her creator have been "rejected by the world" and how Mamika has no idea what true pain is, while going There's No Kill Like Overkill on Mamika with her Storm of Blades.
    • Even the above pales in comparison to the Breakdown she suffers when confronted with the resurrected Setsuna in episode 21. Within a few seconds, the smug, unstoppable Invincible Villain facade utterly crumbles to reveal a scared, depressed, guilt-racked girl who just wants to see her Creator.
  • Villain Protagonist: While she is the Big Bad, she is also a Creation protagonist, very evident in the penultimate episode which she is given the most focus following Selesia's death a couple episodes ago.
  • Villain Takes an Interest: The Princess has an Oh, Crap! moment when she sees Sota for the first time, because he was also a friend to Setsuna Shimazaki, her Creator, because he was one of the people that "banished" her from their world. Later, it is revealed that she hates his guts for mistreating Setsuna right before her suicide out of his envy of her talent. Altair seems to acknowledge that it's a pity to kill her Creator's friend, but she is ultimately content to just let him die with the rest of the world.
  • Villain Teleportation: She teleports away in Episode 1 after Meteora shows up to help Selesia, and to escape a battle against the protagonists after being almost erased from existence from overusing her Reality Warper powers in Episode 10.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Towards the end of the anime, Altair has became a widely popular and adored by the audience who watch the Crisis Crossover the heroes prepared in order to defeat her. This makes the whole Elimination Chamber Festival backfire horribly as the Creators ended up giving Altair the perfect scenario for her to increase the public's approval of her and allow her to completely demolish the other Creations because the fans will love her for it.
  • Walking Spoiler: Because the mystery surrounding Military Uniform Princess drives the plot of Re:Creators, any information about her WILL contain massive spoilers.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: She has long silver hair and she's the main villain of the story.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Kills Mamika.
  • Would You Like to Hear How They Died?: During the Elimination Chamber Festival, when she thinks Aliceteria isn't fighting as hard as she would like, she invokes this trope and recounts Mamika's death in graphic detail. This works just as she planned and Aliceteria is provoked into attacking her. Unfortunately for Aliceteria, Altair activates her Attack Reflector, tricking the former into dealing lethal damage to herself.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: A literal example with her light-toned blue hair.
  • You Killed My Father: The harassment that led to the suicide of her Creator, is the main reason for her hatred of the real world and the desire to destroy it. It gets personal towards Sota, who was Setsuna's friend but turned against her when he became jealous of her talent.

Selesia Upitiria

"Charon told me once: I am who I am... It's enough to think about how I can make myself to be as good as I can get."

Selesia is the protagonist of the light novel and anime series Elemental Symphony of Vogelchevalier, but she came from the anime. After she saves Sōta from Military Uniform Princess, she is suddenly taken to the real world. Now, she and Meteora have to live with him, as they have nowhere else to go. After #3, she's living together with Marine and Meteora.


  • Anguished Declaration of Love: Gives one Charon in the 19th episode, in the hope that this will save her from having to sacrifice their lives to save the world. This does not work.
  • Artificial Family Member: She's a character created by Matsubara, who openly considers her his daughter. Selesia is a bit reluctant to accept him at first, but she eventually opens up to him. Out of all the creator-creation relationships, their bond is the one that most resembles a parent and their child.
  • Berserk Button: Subtle, but Selesia does not take well to being belittled, either through the truth of her existence or that, because of it, her pain had no merit.
  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: Played for laughs in her communication with Matsubara, who definitely perceives her as one.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Her creator, Matsubara, once he's brought up to speed about her being well... real, expresses his worry as without the Vogelchevalier, Selesia is effectively at her limit. It doesn't stop her from putting up a hell of a fight, though.
  • Cleavage Window: Her outfits have them.
  • Cool Big Sis: Showing sisterly cares towards her younger acquaintances like Sōta and Rui. Even her harsh words to Mamika have wisdom in them like a senior to a junior.
  • Cool Sword: A contemporary Royal Rapier. The blade can dissipate and reappear from its hilt.
  • Death Is the Only Option: She dies with Charon after she concludes that their death is the only possible way to stop their fight and remove protection from Altair.
  • Decoy Protagonist: After being a Creation protagonist to Sōta's Creator protagonist, she dies just three episodes away from the Grand Finale and the final episodes indicates either Altair and/or Meteora were the true Creation protagonists of the anime this whole time.
  • Existential Horror: Like all of the Creations, she undergoes character development after entering the real world. Selesia takes the form of an existential crisis after learning the true nature of her and her world's existence. She does her best to bury it, but occasionally the pain shows through.
  • Fiery Redhead: Surprisingly comes out less in battle where she is usually more composed, but in peaceful situations Selesia's emotions are quite intense, such as her arguments with Takashi or anger at Rui. As fitting of a Tsundere light novel heroine. It is subtly implied that her increased composure in the real world battles isn't reflective of her Hot-Blooded fighting in her light novel however, it's the result of her situation and existential crisis.
  • Flaming Sword: She temporarily gains this in Episode 10 after Takashi uploads information on the modifications to her powers, as new update for his novel, on the internet. Her sword turns bigger, sets on fire, and erupts like a volcano.
  • Go Out with a Smile: She performs her final Taking You with Me attack with a smile on her face.
  • The Hero Dies: Killed in episode 19, stopping Charon's attack on the other Creations.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Pulls a suicide move against Charon in episode 19 to give the other heroes a chance to stop Altair.
  • The Heroine: Noble, brave and determined, Selesia is the show's primary heroic character. The series she comes from is a straightforward heroic fantasy. Lampshaded when Meteora notes that Selesia is essentially playing the role of The Hero that Meteora always assists in her game. Selesia accepts this distinction without objection.
  • Hero Stole My Bike: Hijacks a car she and Sota landed on after falling from the sky in a very GTA manner.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Meteora, with whom they always appear together in the first half of the show, and become best friends.
  • Hope Spot:
    • She gets this when the flame powers written into her backstory become real, gaining the ability to generate flames and allowing her to briefly recover from being stabbed by Aliceteria. It doesn't last, however, as the modifications quickly wear off after the battle, leaving her in the same injured state she was before.
    • She later gets another brief one during the Elimination Chamber Festival, when she thinks that she successfully excluded Altair from the real world. A split second later, Altair has teleported herself into Vogelchevalier's cockpit and ensnared her in a Headlock of Dominance.
  • Humongous Mecha: The Vogelchevalier. Unfortunately for her, Altair disintegrated it in the first episode. This limits her combat power significantly. She gets it back in Episode 16 when Meteora manifests it in the real world due to the powers she gained in the lead-up to the Elimination Chamber Festival.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: By Aliceteria in episode 10. She temporarily gets better thanks to her new power-up, only to return to her original form with a hole still in her gut.
  • Instant Expert: She immediately learns how to drive a regular car, saying that its control scheme is simple compared to the Vogelchevalier's. Still, she could use some practice.
  • Is That the Best You Can Do?: In Episode 10, while angry at Aliceteria for wounding Meteora, she all but exclaims this, directly assaulting Aliceteria's standing as a knight for attacking a Squishy Wizard who can hardly defend herself.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: Without her Vogelchevalier, she is this. Capable of fighting and flying, but more or less outclassed by everyone else with a similar power set (outgunned by Mamika's magic attacks and overwhelmed by Aliceteria's melee prowess). She also has no way to fight at range, which every other Creation besides Magane is capable of. Even with Vogelchevalier, she is still outclassed by Altair and Aliceteria in power, along with Rui and Charon, whose abilities with their respective mechs surpasses her own.
  • Last Request: In her final moments, she asks Matsubara to give her world nice stories and coffee.
  • Ma'am Shock: Comedically, she loses it when Rui turns down her offer to date him, all but saying that she's too old for him.
  • Magic Knight: So far, she has displayed the ability to fly and imbuing flame to her sword.
  • Multicolored Hair: Her hair is red on its exterior, but vibrant orange on its interior.
  • Mundane Object Amazement: She falls in love with coffee, of all things.
  • Next Tier Power-Up: Her fire-based form that was created in Episode 3 becomes this seven episodes later, after Takashi uploads it to the internet. It's temporary, however, and wears off after the battle is over.
  • Oh, Crap!: In Episode 17, she attempts to warp Altair to another dimension in order to remove her from the real world. Just when Selesia thought she won, Altair reappears in Vogelchevalier's cockpit a split second later and puts her in a Headlock of Dominance, casually telling Selesia that she could easily disintegrate Vogelchevalier again and drop her foe to her death. Naturally, this reaction is etched onto Selesia's face the whole time.
  • Portal Door: Vogelchevalier has the ability to create portals to other dimensions. An attempt to use this power to exclude Altair from the real world fails, however.
  • Primary-Color Champion: She has flaming red hair and wears a blue outfit, highlighting her status as the heroic protagonist of her world.
  • Rage Against the Author: Downplayed at first, but ultimately subverted. While she is vocal about her disgust and even goes far as to threaten Matsubara, she is also completely ready to admit and defend the fact he is her Creator.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches her hips.
  • Rounded Character: Watching her behavior, Meteora expresses the idea that as a character in a light novel, her personality is definitely deep and elaborated, which allows her to react to new events as a full-fledged personality. It's later shown that all of the Creations will become like this if they stay in reality long enough, Selesia just starts this way due to the love and dedication Takashi put into making sure she was like a real person.
  • Save the Villain: An unintentional one, as she blocks Aliceteria from impaling Magane, unaware the prior to this, Magane stated that Aliceteria would be impaled by her own lance and successfully goaded the latter into calling her bluff and attacking her. Were it not for Selesia's intervention, Aliceteria would have been skewered, courtesy of Magane's powers.
  • Silly Rabbit, Idealism Is for Kids!: She gave back to Mamika all the physical damage she received from her as psychological damage by telling the Magical Girl exactly why her view of the world is too naive to achieve anything. By the time Selesia finishes talking, Mamika is on the verge of tears.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": "Selesia", "Celejia", "Celesia", "Selejia"... even the series seems to have trouble with which one to use in translations.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: The 19th episode plays it almost straight when Selesia is forced to kill herself with Charon, after she could not persuade him to go over to their side and stop defending Altair.
  • Sword and Sorcerer: Forms this dynamic with Merteora as the Sword.
  • Taking You with Me: In Episode 19, she traps Charon and tells Rui to use his reflector shield on both of them, killing them both in the process.
  • Tsundere: As part of her "typical main heroine of light novel" personality. It's downplayed significantly likely due to her novel's Love Interest not being around. This side of her for the most part only comes out in her interactions with her "father" Takashi.
  • Warrior Princess: She's a sword-toting mecha piloting princess, at least in her original world.
  • Weaponized Teleportation: She can do this with Vogelchevalier's ability to create portals in order to exclude enemies from the battlefield.

Meteora Österreich

"Now that I've lost that eternity, can I accept my world and my role in it? Can I accept the person who created that world? I'm proud to say this: I can."

A NPC from the JRPG Avalken of Reminisce, who is looking for her Creator. After helping Selesia drive off Military Uniform Princess, she stays with Sōta as well. After #3, she lives together with Selesia at Marine's house.


  • Alpha Strike: One of her attacks consists of summoning a lot of real world anti-tank missiles (Type 87 Chu-MAT) in a huge concentrated strike. She stole all those weapons, by the way.
  • The Anti-Nihilist: After playing her game of origin, Meteora comes to terms with her existence as a fictional character and renews her sense of purpose.
  • Badass Bookworm: An NPC librarian who can summon magical shields and a phalanx of rocket launchers.
  • Barrier Warrior: She's actually pretty unskilled in offensive magic, so this is her main method of combat.
  • Big Eater: Generally, every creation that comes to live becomes one thanks to he/she gaining realistic sense of taste. Nobody, however, has the same amount of appetite to match Meteora's.
  • Big Good: She serves as the leader and central rallying force of the protagonists' team.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Depending on how seriously you take Episode 13, she can be this. Under her friendly, stoic exterior, she is snarky to her allies and holding deep grudge to the people who slight her.
  • The Comically Serious: Doesn't change her tone of voice even when she tells a joke, which causes it to fall flat to everyone else.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Her Crippling Overspecialization causes every fight she's alone in to end this way... against herself.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Playing for laughs with her awkward attempts to joke and more directly in the 13th episode, when she appears as a sarcastic narrator.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Meteora becomes noticeably more relaxed and calm after she finishes her "game" for the night and partially determined her feelings.
  • De-Power: In the final episode, Meteora's final act with her powers is to send all the other surviving Creations, except Magane, back to their home worlds. She then loses said powers as a byproduct of reality correcting itself from the changes made by Altair when she brought the Creations to the real world.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Doesn't like it when Mirokuji calls her "Metchin."
  • The Face: After the protagonists are interrogated by the government, Meteora explains the situation to them and is able to come to a mutually beneficial solution between the two parties.
  • Fantastic Angst: It is implied that she is experiencing some problems with the fact that she is only a reference character from a fictional setting, which probably was less developed than the rest of the characters in the show. She gets over it after playing her own game. In doing this she realized her creator really did love her game and her world.
  • Flight: As part of her magical power, Meteora can fly at high speeds, allowing her to keep up with Selesia and Military Uniform Princess.
  • Foil: With Magane. While Magane is a concentrated example of a Manipulative Bitch and loves stirring up distrust and chaos for the sake of it, Meteora is always ready to help not only her friends, but even her opponent, the first of which is ironically Magane. For example, while Magane uses Sota's past to manipulate him, Meteora earnestly helps him understand his feelings and recover from his trauma.
  • Good Counterpart: In a way, she's this to Altair. Both lost their Creators under incredibly tragic circumstances, but rather than lash out at the world for taking her god away from her as Altair is, Meteora instead fights to protect it.
  • Great Big Book of Everything: Apparently her Magic Book can, among other things, give her all the information she needs to understand the new world she was thrust into. Meteora claims it's even better than web search engines, though Selesia doubts this after it's shown that some of Meteora's magic doesn't work in the real world. It loses this quality in the final episode, becoming blank as Meteora loses her powers.
  • Hair Decorations: Her hair is adorned with a white disk that has a smaller blue disk contained in the center, which is surrounded with green curved lines.
  • Hammerspace: Her offensive ability is storing and firing weapons with this a Gate of Babylon. The power augmentations she gained for the Elimination Chamber Festival expand this to include being able to remotely pilot military vehicles and launching their ordnance.
  • Have You Seen My God?: Her main character arc is to find her Creator, the opportunity to see which she got through getting into the real world. Unfortunately, he's been dead for a long time before Meteora had a chance to meet him.
  • Heroic Albino: She has white hair and pale skin and she's one of the main good guys.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Selesia, with whom they always appear together in the first half of the show, and seem to have become best friends.
  • I Choose to Stay: Meteora says she will happily remain in our world in the status of a ordinary human, so that she can write stories herself.
  • I Should Write a Book About This: In the epilogue Meteora decides to write a debut novel about the events that she experienced in the show. It's named Re:Creators...
  • Icy Blue Eyes: They represent her cold and analytical character.
  • Jabba Table Manners: Downplayed and justified by the fact that real world food tastes awesome to creations, but still there. Has a habit of speaking with her mouth full. People only get annoyed because they don't understand what she's saying, however.
  • Kleptomaniac Hero: She stole high-grade military equipment to fight the Military Uniform Princess because she doesn't have experience in attack magic. Kikuchihara lets her off the hook for it, provided that she ask permission before doing it again.
  • Lemony Narrator: Took this role in Episode 13.
  • Logical Weakness: While her barriers are very sturdy, she is only capable of casting them in the direction she is facing, leaving her vulnerable to attacks from behind. Additionally, the barriers do not prevent her from being pushed backwards by any sufficiently strong force that collides with them, as Aliceteria and Blitz demonstrate in episode 6. A foe capable of exerting such a force can take advantage of both weaknesses to push Meteora, barrier and all, straight into any obstacles that may be in the way, forcing her to take damage by virtue of her unprotected back being smashed into said structure. Enemies who can attack her from all sides, such as Altair and Aliceteria, can also capitalize on her inability to cast barriers in any direction but ahead.
  • Magic Missile Storm: Both averted and played straight! She's no good at offensive spells. It would end there had she not stolen rocket launchers from the JSDF, which she keeps in a (magical) hammerspace and activates via (magical) telekinesis rendering her able to unleash as literal a Magic Missile Storm as it gets!
  • Marionette Master: She effectively becomes this towards Sirius in Episode 20, because the latter has no sense of self or personality and thus cannot act without explicit instructions.
  • Nice Girl: Despite her stoic attitude, Meteora has a warm personality, is extremely kind, and considerate to others' feelings. She repeatedly tries to help and comfort her friends with their problems. This becomes more prevalent after her Character Development from playing her own game. She's actually too nice for her own good. She admits to this flaw after realizing that she should've grilled Sota harder over what he was hiding from her, instead of letting him keep a secret that would ultimately hurt him in the long run.
  • Not So Stoic: Has displayed emotional outbursts in dangerous situations. More comically, she was positively sheepish when Kikuchihara listed the values of the weapons she stole.
  • Ms. Exposition: The first third of the second episode consists mostly of Meteora delivering exposition to her friends (and the audience) about the relationship between the worlds and what little she knows about the plans of Military Uniform Princess. She still serves this role, but it becomes much less frequent later on.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Parodied by her delusion self in Episode 13, a gorgeous Dark-Skinned Blond wearing little more than a bra and panties.
  • Mystical White Hair: A white-haired mage from a fictional world who was brought to the real world.
  • Oh, Crap!: Her reaction when Altair saw through her entire plan in Episode 17.
  • Parental Abandonment: She experiences a variation of this when she learns her Creator unexpectedly died in a motorcycle accident. Sorting out the complicated feelings she has about this is what helps Meteora find her resolve.
  • Pragmatic Hero: She knows perfectly well that Magane is a bad character, but she will protect her nonetheless, to avoid further escalation of violence.
  • Red Baron: "The Seeker of a Thousand Miles", one she earned in her homeworld. The other Creations sometimes refer to her by this title as well.
  • Rei Ayanami Expy: A mage from another world who has short white hair and initially shows herself as stoic and cold, but later reveals a warmer side.
  • Sexier Alter Ego: Parodied in the 13th episode, when she dreams of a more mature, beautiful and sexy version of herself.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Played straight in episode 13 where she constantly praises herself whenever she talks about herself but belittles the others with the exception of Sota and Selesia, averted with the rest of the series (maybe).
  • The Smart Girl: Due to her "librarian" status, she literally is the brains of the whole group, constantly thinking about the causes and consequences of the events.
  • Spock Speak: As befitting of her role as guide NPC, her speech is peppered with Magi Babble and Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness. Hilariously, possibly as a result of the player of Avalken only being able to talk to her about things she already knows, trying to get information out of her that she doesn't know (or if Meteora herself tries to talk about something she doesn't understand) will usually cause her to deflect the question in a strange variant of Welcome to Corneria with her terrible sense of humor and puns.
  • Squishy Wizard: She might have great magical power, but she has no combat skills and isn't even good at offensive spells, thus making her essentially defenseless against any foe who can get past her barriers. She does better at supporting the real fighters of the show.
  • The Stoic: Meteora keeps a cold, reserved attitude. The first time she attempts to make a joke, not everyone likes it. Over time she does become more expressive as a result of her friendship with Selesia and Marine, but still maintains her calm demeanor.
  • Stone Wall: Meteora can fly and cast strong barrier magic, but she can't heal wounds or cast useful offensive spells and most of her utility based spells don't seem to work either(based on her failure to fix Sota's room). Most of the time her "fighting" is limited to blocking attacks while Selesia does all the attacking. This limits her to using conventional firearms and military grade weapons fired from her Hammerspace, which she needs government permission to use.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: She at first shows hersef as stoic, aloof and reserved, but soon reveals a warm and caring side after coming to terms with how much her creator really cared for her world. In addition, it seems that while eating, she looks more innocent and peaceful.
  • Sword and Sorcerer: Is this with Selesia as the sorcerer.
  • Unreliable Narrator: Parodied ruthlessly in the Recap Episode.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: She takes the opportunity to hear Sota's story about Setsuna's suicide and tells him not to run away from the guilt; instead, he must accept what's happened and prevent such a tragedy from happening again.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: Because she is the one keeping the portal between dimensions open so that the other Creations can return home, Meteora must remain in the real world and become a regular person.

"If I just stand by and watch while this happens, then when I get back to my own world, I'd feel too ashamed to face my friends!"

The protagonist of the magical girl anime series "Magical Slayer Mamika" that is intended for elementary school-aged children.


  • Accidental Misnaming: She seems to have trouble pronouncing the names of Selesia, Meteora, and Aliceteria.
  • Advertised Extra: Despite her episodic participation in the show itself, Mamika can often be seen in various advertisements of the show and the concomitant yonkoma.
  • Afraid of Their Own Strength: She is horrified that her attacks can actually harm people and are capable of destroying buildings. After this, she tries to use her powers at a minimum.
  • Badass Adorable: She's a cute magical girl that blasts literal hearts at her enemies... and is one of the stronger Creations in the series.
  • Big Sister Worship: She quickly develops a bond with Aliceteria, even offering to eat dinner and stay with her.
  • Clark Kenting: Her street clothes are plain, with muted colors.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: As a product of her genre and its target audience, she's one. Her traits in particular include not being able to properly pronounce certain characters' names, like with Aliceteria's which the latter had to correct her three times in a row. She also believes that people after being beaten can become her friends.
  • The Cutie: A genuinely selfless, innocent and benevolent young girl who just wants everyone to get along, making her death all the sadder.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Discussed and subverted, as she thinks this is how it works because of the nature of her show, but Selesia very quickly shuts her down by frankly telling her that beating the crap out of someone just because they don't agree with you will make them less likely to agree with you.
  • Defiant to the End: In her last moments, Mamika unleashes a massive magical explosion to destroy Altair.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: Dies in Aliceteria's arms after flying away from her fight with Altair. Unfortunately, she can't get her Last Words out a second time, leaving Magane to interpret them to Alice. Bad choice.
  • Disappears into Light: Her body disintegrates into blue pixels after her death.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Knowing that she will likely die if she confronts Altair, Mamika spends her last moments talking with Aliceteria and thanking her for being her friend.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: Doubly so since she is a kid's show character and yet, Mamika is fatally skewered by multiple blades in a brutally graphic way until she musters up the strength to attempt a Fantastic Nuke-level Taking You with Me.
  • Fantastic Nuke: What her "Magical Splash Flare" really is, with reality empathizing the "nuke" part of it for utmost destruction, as seen when she uses it against Altair.
  • Fish out of Water: Like most of the characters, but this trope especially applies to her as she is essentially a kids' show character and as such, comes from a world that is divorced from more serious consequences like collateral damage, conflicting morals, and quite possibly the idea of killing someone.
  • Flight: As a magical girl, she can fly.
  • Friend to All Children: Because she is from a children's show, kids are naturally drawn to her. She doesn't necessarily seem bothered by their affection, reacting to it with mild embarrassment at most.
  • Genre Savvy: As part of her Character Development, after she comes to understand the world as well as the Military Uniform Princess's true motives, she understands that she is most likely going to march to her death and takes it on the chin because her conscience would get the better of her, and if she couldn't talk Altair down, she's going to have to take her down.
  • Glass Cannon: Mamika's magical blasts pack one hell of a punch, but her frilly costume is just as protective as it looks.
  • Grew a Spine: After spending her initial screentime unsure of which side she should be on, she agrees to defend Meteora from Blitz. In a later conversation with Sota, she declares she will remain loyal to her beliefs, even as the real world has begun to change her.
  • Heart Beatdown: Her magical blasts look like pink hearts, and hit with the force of a howitzer.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Altair stabs her multiple times with her rapiers.
  • In the Hood: Her casual disguise sports this. It has cat ears for extra cute points.
  • Kill the Cutie: Mamika, the most kindhearted member of Altair's group, is killed near the end of the first half of the story by Altair. For extra atrociousness, the little girl was only trying to help Altair.
  • Lethal Harmless Powers: Her sole power basically boils down into "pink heart-shaped energy projectile creation", powered by her own belief. In a kid's show, they're harmless. But when used in reality, those projectiles fully obeys the laws of physics, turning them into pink heart-shaped bombs, much to Mamika's horror when she discovers it.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: To Aliceteria. Losing the only person she ever felt that close to after her trauma in her home world cause her to completely lose her ability to be reasoned with AND cross the Despair Event Horizon.
  • Magical Girl: A textbook example, without any irony.
  • Modesty Shorts: Wears a pair of spats underneath her short skirt. Considering how she's from a kid's show, it isn't too surprising that she'd wear shorts to keep her modesty.
  • Morality Chain: Is one to Alice. Once she dies, Alice completely goes on the offensive, intending to kill the good guys.
  • Morality Pet: Aliceteria's newfound friendship with Mamika is about the only thing that can influence her actions outside of her original goals.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Has a major freakout after her battle with Selesia in episode 2 when she realizes that, here in the real world her attacks can actually hurt people, and she sees all of the collateral damage her magic caused.
  • Nice Hat: A cute beret, part of her school uniform.
  • Odd Friendship: She and Aliceteria are practically at opposite ends of the Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism, yet they end up bonding quite easily and clearly care a lot about each other.
  • Open Secret: Her identity as a Magical Girl is supposed to be a secret in her original world as per the rules of her genre wherein a simple costume change counts as a disguise for a heroine. However, upon arriving in the "Land of Gods", she quickly turns embarrassed upon discovering how everyone knows about it, children and otakus alike.
  • Pink Heroine: Her hair and outfit are predominantly pink.
  • Platonic Declaration of Love: To Aliceteria in episode 8, as a manifestation of their Romantic Two-Girl Friendship.
  • Poor Communication Kills: If she had told Alice what was really going on she would probably still be alive, and Alice wouldn't be deceived into fighting the heroes.
  • Power Crystal: The pair of pink, heart-shaped gemstones attached to her chest and encased in her staff which lets her channel and utilize her powers.
  • Purple Eyes: A sign she's a character with magical powers.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Aliceteria. In the ending, it was revealed that she will meet Aliceteria again in a crossover anime. She gives her flowers in the promotion poster.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: She has pink hair and is a cheery and idealistic heroine.
  • Rule of Symbolism: Mamika's Taking You with Me Fantastic Nuke against Altair completely loses the cutesy hearts and has a darker pink/purple coloration, to show loss of innocence and her growth from a naïve little girl into a person with resolve in her beliefs.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Killed in episode 8 just to show Altair is playing for keeps and to give Sota and Aliceteria something to angst over.
  • Senseless Sacrifice: Her final attack does not cause any significant damage on Altair, meaning that Mamika ultimately died for nothing.
  • Stock Shoujo Heroine: A sweet, idealistic, cheerful Pink Heroine of a Magical Girl series that's aimed at elementary-aged girls. She's got Super Cute Superpowers and is very selfless and naive.
  • Super Cute Super Powers: She shoots pink hearts at people. They hurt MUCH more than you might expect.
  • Taking You with Me: She tries this with a MASSIVE magical explosion at the end of episode 8, after being impaled and she realizing Altair's rage at the creators has brought her too far gone to save. Mamika anticipated this. It doesn't work, however, as Altair shows up two episodes later, none the worse for wear.
  • Token Good Teammate: Amongst those working with the Military Uniform Princess, she seems to be the only genuinely good person that, more than anything, just wants everyone to get along.
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: Mamika is undoubtedly one of the kindest, most selfless Creations in the series, with the moral compass to match. Unfortunately for her, she's the first Creation to go, stabbed multiple times with Altair's numerous rapiers before attempting to take Altair down with her with a Fantastic Nuke.
  • Tragic Bromance: Female version with Aliceteria. They formed a close friendship, but Altair kills Mamika right after they have a heart to heart conversation. Mamika then dies in Aliceteria's arms, who immediately swears revenge on Mamika's killer. Too bad Aliceteria gets tricked and goes after the wrong person first.
  • Transformation Sequence: Actually a pretty mild one by the standards of her home genre: She says her catchphrase, the screen flips with her already in full outfit, and she dances around the screen a bit.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Given that she is a Magical Girl, it shouldn't come off as a surprise; but it makes her go into conflict with the more realistic and nuanced Selesia. She even tries to keep peace when Aliceteria fights Selesia and Meteora, to no avail. Her attempt to talk down Altair, despite her obvious blind rage and hatred for everything, gets her killed, though thanks to some Character Development and newfound Genre Savvyness Mamika does have a backup plan.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Although other Creations repeatedly told her that she is no longer in her world, Mamika still tries to act according to the morals and spirit of her original story's setting. Ultimately, this is what does her in.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: After learning Altair's story, Mamika talks to her and attempts to get her to let go of her quest for vengeance, saying her Creator wouldn't have wanted her to be consumed by sadness and grief. Altair responds horribly.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is pink.

"Whatever happens happens. I'm going to do what I want: to have fun."

The Rival of the main character from the "Underground Dark Night" manga.


  • Affably Evil: He is so friendly, caring, principled and wise that it's very easy to forget that in his story he is appointed the main villain of his series. Of course, turns out he wasn't evil in his own series either.
  • The Anti-Nihilist: Yuuya is not at all bothered over the fact that he is a fictional character and his Creator is just a regular person rather than an all-powerful god. In fact, he finds it entertaining and doesn't want to change it. His reaction to meeting his Creator ends up revealing that even he has his limits, and that he can't accept that his author seems very apathetic about his work.
  • Berserk Button: As a thug, he has plenty of them. For starters he hates when people interfere in his fights or keep him from having fun. The biggest one is being looked down on by someone he sees as a Smug Snake. His author manages to push several of them in the span of a few sentences by being overly smug and self centered, belittling Yuuya's past troubles, and mocking someone Yuuya thinks is cool (Takashi). This earns him a swift beatdown.
    • He also doesn't take it well at all when Meteora warns him of Magane's ability to reverse causality through lies and can no longer take up arms against her after she had successfully played him, making him into a hapless fool who has to rely on somebody else now to fight her.
    • The details behind Hangaku in his backstory are this as well, which ironically gets it stolen from him.
  • Blood Knight: As fitting of a fighting manga gang boss. Most of this is directed specifically at Blitz, who he considers a Worthy Opponent. When the truth comes out that he didn't kill Sho's sister, Yuuya admits he didn't tell Sho because he enjoyed fighting him so much.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: He was able to deduce a lot of details about the real world, the stranger who brought him here, and what's going on just from observation. That being said, he has no intention of finding his Creator or changing the nature of his original world; he just wants to enjoy himself in the new reality.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: His rant towards his Creator can be interpreted this way.
  • Chick Magnet: It is implied that because of his and Sho's attractiveness, their manga had so many fansgirls that some even considered it girl-oriented. Their fight in the 17th series also causes excitement among the girls.
  • Cool Shades: They go with his "bad boy" look.
  • Cursed with Awesome: He laments that the spirit Hangaku is a curse that has been placed upon him, but in the show (the actual show, not the series he comes from) he never seems to suffer any obvious disadvantage. Hangaku is even shown to be very helpful during battles.
  • Discard and Draw: After losing Hangaku, all he has left are his sword and Creation-level strength and durability, until he is later given ice powers in the lead-up to the Elimination Chamber Festival.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Yuuya may not be a particularly pleasant person, but he understands basic human decency. When he finally meets his Creator, he is disgusted by his blatant disrespect to Matsubara. He even says Matsubara is a better god than him. Yuuya also doesn't like it when people walk on top of the kindness of others to get what they want, which is why he steps in and saves Sota from Magane.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He's the main villain of a manga, but he admits that he misses his friends from his world, and wishes they were with him in our world.
  • Final Boss: Within his own story, and fully aware of it. He's really just a Disc-One Final Boss.
  • Friendly Enemy: Even considering their feud with Sho, they still prefer to communicate in a sarcastic and friendly tone.
  • Good All Along: Yuuya was always treated as a good guy in the series proper, but it always came off a bit odd that such a friendly guy is supposed to be the main villain of his manga who killed the hero's sister and best friend. It's eventually revealed Yuuya is innocent. Sho was just tricked by the real villain into going after Yuuya.
  • Guardian Entity: Hangaku, a naginata-wielding spirit, unique to him and his story. He loses it to Magane after he says too much. Then, he gets it back when Magane just decides she doesn't want it anymore.
  • Hidden Depths: He's the first to realize that the creations can even have this at all. For him specifically, it's implied that he really did a lot of research after appearing in the new world, like finding out he was the final boss of his source material. It's backed up later that he was looking into the sources of the other Creations by the fact he knows what Rui was like in his series, and can notice the subtle changes in his personality.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Yuuya's tendency to trash talk to his opponent and brag about his power ends up permanently rendering Magane completely immune to his sword, forcing him to only use his Guardian Entity to fight her. His rage later gets Hangaku stolen too.
  • An Ice Person: In the lead-up to the Elimination Chamber Festival, he gains the ability to create pillars of ice by swinging his sword to make up for his loss of Hangaku.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: After Altair manages to subsume Sirius, she impales Yuuya with her swords in much the same way as she did to Mamika.
  • It Amused Me: His only real motivation. It becomes slightly frustrating for the other characters when one of his other core traits is Blood Knight tendencies.
  • Japanese Delinquents: His appearance in the opening theme, clothes and manner of speech implies this.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Despite his acerbic personality, Yuuya has shown remarkable insight into the psyches of the Creations once they enter the real world. The biggest example is in Episode 7, where he predicts that Magane is trying to find a new purpose and in doing so has likely become something new that is not the same character from her novel. He's immediately shown to be correct.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's a bad-mouthed, short-tempered, battle-loving delinquent, but it's so easy to see he's not a bad guy inside that exterior, it's hard to believe he's supposed to be a villain in his manga. Unsurprisingly, he isn't evil in his original story either.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Lampshaded in the Hot Springs Episode where even his own Creator is impressed of how attractive Yuuya is with no clothes on.
  • Nominal Hero: Later, he decides to help the other heroic characters in discovering Military Uniform Princess' origins, as long as he can have fun doing it.
  • Parrying Bullets: He can move fast enough to accomplish this, and did so to protect a downed Selesia when she was fired upon by Blitz.
  • Poor Communication Kills: The entire source of his conflict with Sho. Yuuya never killed Sho's sister and his best friend, but Sho just believed what some old Fortune Teller told him about Yuuya doing it. Yuuya never cared to find out why Sho came to hate him so much and just found it fun to fight him. Even after Yuuya finds out the full truth from his own author, he doesn't even try to explain anything to his rival, which would have made Sho switch sides a lot sooner, until Hikayu starts to clear things up for Sho.
  • Razor Wind: The air currents from his sword strikes are capable of rending flesh.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Always when he smokes, he does it stylishly, holding the cigarette pretty relaxed.
  • Stupid Sexy Flanders: Playing for laugh in episode 17 when they go to the hot springs, where the other guys become embarrassed by how sexy his body is.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: After witnessing the drama between Hikayu and her creator, he muses that he should have joined Altair's side.
  • Token Evil Teammate: While he isn't what one would call evil, he is however the most abrasive member of the heroes' side of things by far.
  • Totally Radical: In an easy form and deliberately, as he should be perceived as a stereotypical Japanese street bandit. At the same time, usually it's more directly played in the fan sub and dub in English and other languages.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Ice cream. When he isn't fighting, he's usually drinking it down.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Aliceteria notes that his technique is pretty bad. Yuuya relies on his overwhelming power to win.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: In a fit of anger, he flat-out asks Altair why the latter doesn't simply erase the Creations from existence after she removes Hikayu's powers. According to Metoera, the reason Altair even bothered to keep the other Creations alive is because she turned the Elimination Chamber Festival into her own personal story, and needed them around to play supporting roles and bolster the hype from the audience in order to gain their acceptance to empower herself.
  • Wild Card: Agrees not to antagonize Selesia or Meteora, as long as they don't get in his way.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He's not above bashing a girl's brains in either if he feels like it, even if they are a child. Or so he says. He holds back on finishing Mamika in episode 6, telling Selesia he wasn't planning on hurting her. He just wanted to fight Blitz without any interference. He certainly seems to have nothing stopping him based on gender, but is more reluctant to actually hurt children. This could also be because he underwent some offscreen Character Development due to his stay the real world, as he points out later. He has no problem with drawing his blade against Magane though.
  • Worthy Opponent: He considers Blitz to be this.
  • Villainous Rescue: His true allegiance is still unknown but he still stops Mamika from killing Selesia over a misunderstanding.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Purple in his case.

    Aliceteria February 

Aliceteria February

Voiced by: Yoko Hikasa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aliceteria_february_anime.png
"The path to saving my world lies right in front of me. I must take it! I have no mercy for those who stand in my way!"

A noble's daughter, the protagonist of a fantasy epic manga and anime franchise titled "Aliceteria of the Scarlet."


  • Adorkable: Outside of combat and in less tense situations she's rather awkward, possibly because her source material is a Berserk-like blood bath where she spends little time not acting like a knight or killing something. Mamika notes that Alice's behavior is similar to that of an old lady.
  • Affectionate Nickname: "Alice-chan" from Mamika.
  • Ambiguously Gay: She is so close to Mamika that she eventually confesses to her in love and gradually increasingly replaces the motivation of Alicetheria as the plot develops.
  • And This Is for...: "This is for Mamika!", when she attempts to land an attack on Altair in Episode 18.
  • Badass Cape: A long red cape that flutters beautifully in the middle of a fight.
  • Back from the Dead: As we learn from a brief overview of her background, she was resurrected by some powerful magician to fight evil.
  • Beam Spam: She can use her gauntlet to summon an army of winged horse-mounted lance wielding familiars, all of which can shoot beams from the tips of their lances. Naturally, all of them doing it simultaneously results in this.
  • Berserk Button: It seems very difficult for her to understand when other people doubt the correctness of her actions.
  • Broken Bird: After Mamika dies she completely stops listening to reason. She starts screaming at Sota when he tries to get her to calm down and realize there's no way Meteora killed Mamika, even though her reactions show somewhere in there its true. The most ironic part is her personality starts to resemble Mamika's before her resolution, constantly conflicted on what to do and unsure of what her ideals even are anymore.
  • Cool Big Sis: Towards Mamika, the only one offering her sympathy after she learns the truth of her world. 
  • Cool Horse: A white, flying horse that she can summon at will.
  • Cry Cute: Aliceteria can barely do much else but to cry as she is forced to watch Mamika die in her arms, talking her last words.
  • Death by Genre Savviness: Similarly to Mamika, her awareness that she is a character in a fictional story, is gradually becoming a trigger that leads her to death.
  • Defiant to the End: Despite being grievously wounded by Altair's Attack Reflector transferring the damage from her lance stab to herself, she defiantly tells Altair that the story is not yet over, before attempting to punch Altair with her flaming gauntlet. Unfortunately, Altair's Attack Reflector is still active, and the reversed damage from that punch is enough to knock her off her horse with fatal consequences.
  • Demoted to Extra: Following her death, Altair deliberately highlights this trope, noting that being brought to the real world causes it to apply to any Creation who was previously a main character in their source material.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Crosses it after Mamika dies and she doesn't know what to believe anymore. Sota finds that it becomes completely impossible to reason with her. On some level she seems to realize she's doing the wrong thing as her expressions when she almost kills Meteora and Selesia indicate, but her grief is too far gone for her to stop.
  • Disappears into Light: Like Mamika, her body and horse disintegrates into blue pixels when she dies.
  • Dramatically Missing the Point: After coming to the real world, she is initially out for her Creator's blood under the notion that he made her source material a Crapsack World solely for the sake of entertaining people in the real world. What she failed to comprehend until Episode 12 was the fact that her Creator made her world that way in order to push her to reach new heights as its protagonist, and enable the audience to sympathize with her in the process.
  • Dynamic Entry: She first appears descending on her horse and saving Mamika from Yuuya.
  • Elemental Punch: She is capable of setting her gauntlet on fire, which naturally leads to this trope if she punches an opponent.
  • Fatal Flaw: Impulsiveness. Given her fair share of difficulties in her homeworld, it shouldn't be a surprise Aliceteria is quick to solve every problem with violence but it does her no favors when she enters the real world and gets played like a fool by Altair and Magane, causing her to pick the wrong person to condemn and the wrong person to condone. Example A) trying to kill Meteora for supposedly killing Mamika. Example B) attacking Altair even when she has taken steps to protect herself. She pays dearly for the latter.
  • Foil: To Mamika. She's cynical to Mamika's idealism, she comes from a story aimed at young adults and older compared to Mamika's aimed at small children, her world is a extreme Crapsack World compared to Mamika's relatively peaceful one, and while Mamika starts the story wavering and unsure of herself but eventually finds her purpose in life and resolution in her ideals, Alice starts the story with strong set resolve and ideals that start to waver and eventually break completely turning her into a Broken Bird.
  • Hand Blast: Can generate a magical blast with her left gauntlet. It's strong enough to blast through two bridges.
  • Heel–Face Turn: To be fair, she is more misguided than evil, but it happens in Episode 12. Inspired by Sota's faith in her, despite being on opposite sides, Aliceteria releases her Creator from imprisonment and makes peace with him. She remains in Altair's side as a Reverse Mole until Episode 18 when she joins Selesia and Rui in a Combination Attack against Altair.
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard: This almost happens to her when Magane told her she would be impaled by her own lance. The former denies this, understandably incensed by the latter's words, and moves to attack. It is only through the intervention of Selesia that prevented Magane's words from coming true and killing her. At the time, Aliceteria herself was unaware of how Magane's power worked, and also how close she was to getting killed by it.
    • Later, during the Elimination Chamber Festival, this is exactly how she dies after impaling Altair with said lance, when the latter uses an Attack Reflector power to redirect the damage from the strike back at her.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: The fact that she believes anything that the Princess and Magane say at all puts her firmly in this category. Her perspective finally changes, thanks to Sota, of all people.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: During the Elimination Chamber Festival, when she impales Altair with her lance, the latter uses an Attack Reflector power to transfer the damage from the strike back at her. She doesn't exactly get impaled, but for all intents and purposes, she might as well be suffering the effects of this trope.
  • Jousting Lance: Her weapon is a magical lance.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Gender switch and more dark variant, she is the heroine of dark fantasy manga, where she fights a terrible evil army. In later events, she is also revealed as a warrior with strong moral principles. Too strong, in fact.
  • Magic Knight: She surpasses Selesia in martial ability and strength, plus has a very strong grasp of her universe's magic.
  • Misplaced Retribution: Due to Magane deliberately causing a misunderstanding, Aliceteria goes to seek revenge on Meteora for supposedly killing Mamika. When Aliceteria realizes the real killer is Altair, she switches her target.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Upon accidentally stabbing Selesia, she is absolutely horrified.
  • Never Hurt an Innocent: Subverted. She was all too willing to kill Sota if it meant getting her hands on Meteora, who she thinks killed Mamika. It's only after mortally impaling Selesia that she realizes what she has done.
  • Nobody Calls Me "Chicken"!: In Episode 10, she clearly doesn't take being called a "coward" by Selesia well.
  • Odd Friendship: She and Mamika are practically at opposite ends of the Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism, yet they end up bonding quite easily and clearly care a lot about each other.
  • Playing with Fire: She is capable of setting her gauntlet alight, which can then be used as an Elemental Punch.
  • Pretty Princess Powerhouse: She is the daughter of an eminent nobleman and at the same time, a stern warrior who is stronger than an entire army of knights.
  • Rage Against the Author: To say she is not happy to learn she is a fictional character would be an understatement. She even threatens to kill her Creator for apparently making her world suffer in the name of entertainment.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Is very long and thick, reaching her hips.
  • Redemption Equals Death: The climax of her Character Development following her Heel–Face Turn is to die at the hands of Altair while attempting to avenge Mamika.
  • Revenge: She wants this on Mamika's killer. Magane tricks her into thinking Meteora did it. Once Aliceteria figures out that Altair is the real culprit, she turns against her instead.
  • Reverse Mole: While still remaining on Altair's side, she becomes this after a talk with her Creator, Takarada, in Episode 12. To that effect, he even describes her as a "Trojan Horse".
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Mamika, unusual due to the age difference. In the ending, it is revealed that she will meet Mamika again in a crossover anime.
  • Senseless Sacrifice: Her attempted attack on Altair in Episode 19 not only got herself killed, but it didn't even scratch Altair anyway.
  • Shock and Awe: She can generate bolts of electricity from her gauntlet, which can be used to block energy attacks from hitting her.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Even without her armor, she is very tall.
  • Superpower Lottery: She won it harder than Yuuya did. She's a Flying Brick with a magic gauntlet that can do just about anything destruction related, like summon familiars, call lightning, shoot magic beams, and other nasty surprises. She's also strong enough to destroy Gigas Machina's Deflector Shields and knock it a few feet backwards. The only reason she doesn't just solve every problem in her homeworld is that her world is an EXTREME Crapsack World. Against the other creations, she's basically unstoppable outside of Altair and Magane's reality warping traps.
  • Tomboy Princess: Although you will have no doubts about her gender, Aliceteria behaves more like a strong manly warrior than a princess from her world. She even wears her pants as part of her everyday costume.
  • Unstoppable Rage: After Aliceteria watches Mamika die, she firmly in this mode as she goes relentlessly goes out looking for her killer. The problem with this is Magane had played her into thinking Meteora did it.
  • The Worf Effect: Despite her combat prowess and immense power, she is killed off rather unceremoniously by Altair without much difficulty, just to show how powerful the latter has become.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: As she is a heroine of fantasy manga, she initially believed that the real world is the land of the gods, even when Meteora is trying to prove to her that in addition to creating fictional worlds, people do not have any supernatural powers.
    • After her death following her assertions as a hero and main character, Altair also highlights this, noting that she died honorably in battle defending her beliefs. Altair points out that while such an end would have been fitting for a knight like her had it occurred in her source material, she is simply just another combatant in the Elimination Chamber Festival, and thus her death is merely just one of many twists and turns in the battle.

    Blitz Talker 

Blitz Talker

Voiced by: Atsushi Ono

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/blitz_talker_anime.png

A character from cyberpunk anime and manga Code・Babylon. He is the partner of the main character and a former bounty hunter.


  • Action Dad: His daughter, Erina, is present in the series.
  • Anti-Magic: Averted. His bullets at first seem to penetrate Meteora's force fields, but they actually use gravity to rip the target apart. Meteora's barrier protects her, but doesn't stop her from being flung out of the gravity field and into a bridge.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Doesn't hesitate to shoot you while you're down.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He likes to sneer occasionally, for example, telling Aliceteria that he wants to return to his story in order to pay for renting a house.
  • Flight: Thanks to a small, watch-like device.
  • Gravity Is Purple: His gravity bullets visually manifest a purple force field when they strike a target, showing their area of effect on said target.
  • Gravity Master: His watch seems to be some kind of high-tech anti-gravity device, and his gun can also fire "Gravity Bomb" bullets in case heavier firepower is needed.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He joins the protagonist's team after reuniting with his daughter in Episode 18.
  • Humble Goal: He wants to return home... so he can pay rent.
  • The Gunslinger: His most visible weapon is a handgun equipped with Anti-Magic bullets.
  • Kill the Ones You Love: He had to kill his beloved daughter after she was turned into a Weapon of Mass Destruction.
  • Long-Range Fighter: He makes absolutely certain that he keeps his distance from his targets while in combat through his levitation device. Justified, as he's a gunman.
  • My Greatest Failure: He deeply regrets having failed to save his daughter Erina, instead choosing to shoot her himself. The first thing he does when he reunites with a revived Erina is apologize to her for not doing anything to protect her.
  • Not So Stoic: He actually cries when reuniting with his daughter.
  • Offing the Offspring: As revealed in flashback in episode 15, his daughter had been turned into a cybernetic weapon by a Mad Scientist and had to be killed, lest she would cause untold destruction. His partner offered to do the deed, but ultimately Blitz pulled the trigger.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: Aliceteria has noted that his daughter is deceased because he was forced to kill her. Fortunately, his creator found a way to bring her back and allow Blitz reunite with her.
  • Rage Against the Author: He shoots his creator when he finally meets her for writing him in a story where he was forced to kill his own daughter and openly admitting she did it only to make her story more interesting. He was ready to kill her until she brought his daughter back to life. By the end of the series, he still bears a grudge against her even after bringing his daughter back, but decides that there's not much he can do about it.
  • Revolvers Are Just Better: His primary firearm is a heavy revolver with a six o'clock barrel. While a fictional weapon, the unusual barrel configuration is real and is used by the Mateba Autorevolver and the Chiappa Rhino in real life.
  • The Stoic: We never see his emotions, getting his point of view and thoughts only through words.
  • Worthy Opponent: To Yuuya, who joins the protagonists simply out of a desire to fight Blitz again.
  • You Remind Me of X: The Military Uniform Princess reminds him of his late daughter, enough to the point that he doesn't want to leave her side, even when she asks him to. Specifically, the fact that Altair is like "a kingdom that was built to be destroyed" reminds him of the fact that he was forced to kill his daughter as a part of a story that was built to be tragic.

    Rui Kanoya 

Rui Kanoya

Voiced by: Sora Amamiya

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rui_kanoya_anime.png

The protagonist of the mecha anime Infinite Divine Machine Mono Magia. He pilots the giant mecha "Gigas Machina".


  • Ace Pilot: He's a mecha pilot, he qualifies by default. He absolutely dominates the imitation Gigas Machina when Altair brings it out on him and probably would've destroyed it, if it didn't disintegrate on its own.
  • Adorkable: Episode 6 has him try to impress a couple of girls by telling them he is a mecha pilot. His interactions with Yuuya in episode 7 are also hilarious.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Charon severs Gigas Machina's right arm during his fight with Rui, causing the latter intense pain in the corresponding limb due to his Synchronization with the mech.
  • The Anti-Nihilist: He eventually grows comfortable with the idea of being a fictional character because it makes his life easier and makes his purpose to save his world all the clearer.
  • Arm Cannon: Gigas Machina has two of these mounted on each wrist.
  • Badass Adorable: He's also a cute guy with a petite build. In the future, he manages to almost equal with Charon in fight, despite their difference in age and combat experience. He even notes this, being amazed at how a "young boy" can fight so well.
  • Badass Normal: You'd think he'd be a pushover outside his giant robot, but a few judo moves and a couple flattened JSDF soldiers later.
  • Beam Spam: Gigas Machina can do this using its Arm Cannons.
  • Big Eater: Enjoys eating as much as Meteora, however, because of his character, he shows even more zeal in search of food.
  • Bishōnen: He has androgynous looks and is very pretty-looking. Marine expresses her desire to see him in skimpy clothes, just because of his feminine looks.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: He's impertinent, doesn't listen to anyone and gets offended pretty easily. His Creator laments making him that way; he didn't actually expect to deal with him in real life. He gets better after getting time to relax in the real world and comes to understand what being a main character means.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Actively wants to date the heroine of his show, and he spends the day after his arrival flirting with girls.
  • Close-Range Combatant: While not as powerful on foot as the other creations (although he seems to be quite good in hand-to-hand as well), he is capable of holding his own against the invading military when Nakanogane's home is attacked.
  • Dance Battler: Despite being initially shown as not more than a pilot, he shows some serious Capoeira skills when fighting Kikuchihara's soldiers.
  • Deflector Shields: Gigas Machina posseses one of these. However, Aliceteria is strong enough to destroy it and knock the mech a few feet backwards. It can also be used to contain other objects and large enough to do so to both Selesia and Charon's mechs. At Selesia's request, Rui uses the shield to contain her mech along with Charon's, to prevent her Taking You with Me explosion from causing collateral damage.
  • Godzilla Threshold: Kikuchihara seems to treat him and Gigas Machina in this fashion, only calling for him when the fight between Creations was really getting out of hand. 
  • Hero Insurance: Hoisted Nakanogane's house into the air and toppled over military tanks when his Creator's house was attacked, but faced no repercussions.
  • Hot-Blooded: As befitting of the mecha hero archetype, Rui is hot-headed, stubborn and passionate in battle.
  • Humongous Mecha: The Gigas Machina, a 55-meters monstrosity, which is Latin for "giant machine". Unlike Selesia, he was able to bring it into the real world.
  • It Sucks to Be the Chosen One: Sota mentions his character was originally depressed, going so far as to destroy his own base in episode 6. Kanoya also confesses he hated being forced into the role of Gigas Machina's pilot in his series. After coming to the real world, Kanoya comes to accept his role as his story's hero as he has come to understand he's the only one who can save his world.
  • Last-Name Basis: Oddly, is addressed as such by Meteora and Selesia, despite both coming from stories where it's more common to address others by their first name, much like how they address Sota by his first name from the get go.
  • Likes Older Women: Inverted, when Selesia tries to seduce him into helping after he refuses to help, he gives her a once over and brushes her off by saying he's into younger women. Later, we see him apparently flirting with girls that look they're in junior high. Meteora informs us in Episode 13 that Rui is 16 and a lolicon, although she may just be snarking.
  • Mood-Swinger: Very easy to get riled up and is quick to cool down too.
  • Nice Guy: He may be pretty hot-headed and brash, but he's pretty friendly once you get to know him.
  • Not Distracted by the Sexy: When Selesia offers to go on a date with him in exchange for his help, he looks her up and down with an unimpressed expression and then turns her down, stating that he prefers girls younger than him.
  • Odd Friendship: He instantly hits it off with Yuuya, and refers to the former antagonist as "Mirokuji-niichan”.
  • Pint Sized Power House: He's the shortest out of all the male characters but is no less strong despite this.
  • Psychic Link: Has a link with the Gigas Machina and is able to control it to a degree without actually being in it.
  • Refusal of the Call: At least initially, but when he learns that he went from one world facing a terrible crisis to another, he wanted to jump ship. However, it could have been more out of stress and his temper, as when he's taken in by the government and given time to relax, he's is quick to agree in protecting the world.
  • Shrinking Violet: In his first appearance he is rather shy before he gets overwhelmed by the information overload.
  • Stock Shōnen Hero: An example of the shonen protagonist archetype. He eats in large quantities, isn't the brightest bulb around, punches first and asks questions later.
  • Synchronization: He directly feels every damage inflicted on Gigas Machina, as shown when he clutches his arm and screams in agony after Charon severs its right arm. Overclocking Gigas Machina's systems also results in visible injury to Rui.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: He gives one to Charon in Episode 19, pointedly attacking the latter's evasion of responsibility as a hero due to his desire to find Matsubara and make him solve every problem in Earthmelia. It doesn't have any effect on its recipient, however, as Charon dismissively frames Rui as a naive boy who doesn't know what he's talking about, and continues attacking.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Comforts Sota after what happened in episodes 8-10 and inspires him to choose who he wants to be and what he wants to do. It's these words of encouragement what motivate Sota to tell everyone what happened with Shimazaki.
  • You're Not My Type: Selesia attempts to date Rui to get him on her side, but he refuses and says he prefers younger women. Selesia is not happy at being called old.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has literal blue hair.

    Magane Chikujōin 

Magane Chikujōin

Voiced by: Maaya Sakamoto

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/magane_chikujoin_anime.png
"A lie about a lie... turns inside-out on itself."

A villain character from light novel and anime series Record of the Night Window Demon.


  • Ambiguously Human: Is she a human girl with the powers of a demon or a demon masquerading as a human girl? Nobody knows, and her Uncanny Valley characteristics does little to determine her true nature either.
  • Ambition Is Evil: Magane develops ambitions and purpose after being released from constrictions of her novel's plot. Her newfound ambition to become an Evil Overlord after she is changed by her experiences in the real world and learning of the creators drives her create a more directly antagonistic scheme than her old MO of just murdering people on a whim.
  • Awesome, but Impractical: She has an ability to make what her opponent believes to be her lies to come true. While she can defeat people much stronger than she is with it, it requires her foe to verbally call out on her bluff. Removing this restriction is her number one goal in her "Miracle Emperor Plan". 
  • Ax-Crazy: Multiple creations acknowledges that she's practically "a beast" that needs to be contained rather than an potential ally to be recruited, forcing them to hunt her down before she can do too much damage. She becomes even more dangerous and Ax-Crazy when she stops being a wild beast and actually has a goal.
  • Bad Samaritan: She helps Sota figure out that Altair killed Mamika, just to heap more misery on the poor boy.
  • Badass Fingersnap: Her Character Tic, possibly part of her power's activation. It gets made fun in the Recap Episode.
  • Beergasm: With milk of all things, ransacked straight from her "former" Creator's fridge.
  • Black Magic: Reality Warping Word-magic to be precise.
  • Blackmail: Magane finds out Sota's secret (his poor treatment of Setsuna before she killed herself) after stalking him around town. She forces him to give her his number then ominously tells him he better answer her calls.
  • Berserk Button: Apparently she detests hypocrisy, as she loses her cheerful facade during her confrontation with Aliceteria when the knight refuses to acknowledge that there is not that much difference between those who kill for fun and those who kill for "justice".
  • Blatant Lies: Weaponized, as they're part of her Reality Warper powers which needs to be called out upon in order to invoke them.
  • Blood Lust: She's quite happy when a large amount of Mamika's blood falls on her corn dog and eats it anyway. Apparently it tasted pretty good. She also plays with it in her hands.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: She cheerfully announces the end of the show's first act at the end of episode 10, complete with a pose.
  • Break Them by Talking: She does this to Sota in episode 9 by throwing into his face how his actions and lack of assertivity resulted in both Shimazaki's and Mamika's deaths.
  • Brought Down to Normal: due to the murder of her creator, leaving her original story permanently unfinished, and remaining in reality instead, she will eventually lose her Reality Warper powers, as according to Word of God. It won't slow her down in the slightest, as she get to keep her skill with her forked silver tongue as a manipulator, non worse to wear.
  • Butterface: While her body design is regular, if anything a bit lankier than other characters, her face is... off.
  • But Now I Must Go: After giving Sota the trump card he needs to save the day, Magane is last seen in an airport, ready to take off somewhere and never be seen again.
  • Character Development: Very quickly and all of it bad. Being in the real world causes the creations to basically become real people, with changing desires and ambitions because they aren't bound by their source material anymore. Where Magane was simply a horror story monster out to kill people for fun in her novel, she discovers her ambitions after learning of the creators. She decides it would be way more fun to Take Over the World and become all powerful. She's still out to kill people for fun, but now she wants to become an Evil Overlord of all existence, and turn it into something like a horror movie where she can embrace her murderous, sadistic, self centered urges to her heart's content.
  • Combat Parkour: Granted, all she does is dodging, but does an excellent job at it while fighting someone like Yuuya, gradually turning the tables in her favor without taking or throwing one single punch in the process.
  • Consummate Liar: According to her, everybody lies; she is just honest about being a liar.
  • Cutting the Knot: She uses her powers to help Sota bring Setsuna Back from the Dead, without having to run into the issue of whether or not the audience will accept such a development.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: Despite her Obviously Evil color-scheme and appearance, absolutely nobody seems to pay much attention to her while she's walking the streets, either thinking she's into cosplay once they do notice, or simply doesn't register her on their minds at all. Something she uses for her full advantage when she stalks and eavesdrops on Sota for days, all without him noticing until she practically walked in front of him in her Meido-outfit.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: She has dark purple hair and sickly pale skin to contribute to her demonic look.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Sure, she's fine with murder, slaughter, trolling and the like, but even she draws the line when it comes to hypocrisy, the one thing that can wipe her grin out from her face. Cowardice is another thing, as evident in how she described her impression of her Creator later on.
  • Evil Is Hammy: She is inclined to constantly dance and portray theatrical poses during conversation. And this is not to mention her constant sarcastic comments about the surrounding events.
  • Evil Virtues: Honesty, as even if she's a "laughing sack of skin covering a pile of lies", she's always honest about it and her actions while she utterly detest people who lies to themselves in her presence as well.
  • Fan Disservice: She's the only Creation involved in scenes of more exposed nature than all the others, to the point where she walks around in a stranger's apartment in only a pair of black panties and a towel hanging over her shoulders for Scenery Censor. However, her unsettling nature, Uncanny Valley qualities and nightmarish personality saps all "hotness" from those scenes fast.
  • Faux Affably Evil: She talks in a cheerful, joking manner to hide her true, murderous nature.
  • Foil: As a energetic manipulative Large Ham girl compared to an Stoic, innocent and caring Meteora. For example, while Magane uses Sota past to manipulate him, Meteora earnestly helps him understand his feelings and become better.
  • For the Evulz: Her original motivation for killing people. Thanks to Character Development, she's got a more focused reason to kill people now.
  • The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: She murders her Creator after he failed to give her an enormous power up.
  • Genki Girl: A very dark one to boot, always smiling and never gets discouraged regardless of what road bumps appears on her path of ambitions. as seen after she kills her creator and fails to undo her ability's restraints through editing her bio. She simply shrugs it off as a minor obstacle and heads out to try a different way to do so instead.
  • Gratuitous English: For some reason she has this shtick in episode 9. She says "Bingo!", "Magane-chan presents", "positive thinking", "puzzle", among other stuff. She also said "Peace Yeah!" when disguised as a maid in episode 8.
  • Guardian Entity: Hangaku, stolen from Yuuya. She doesn't keep her for long, though.
  • The Hedonist: Taken to the extreme since Magane also has reality warping abilities. All of her actions are determined by what will bring her the most pleasure on a whim.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Magane remains a Wild Card all the way through to the end, but Aliceteria and Sota manages to convince her to help their side out in final battle. Then again it's not like she became "good" all of a sudden: after all, if Altair destroys the world, how could Magane cause chaos and mayhem to her heart's content again?
  • Hellish Pupils: More noticeable when she gets violent.
  • Hidden Depths: During her chat with Sota, she showed genuine solemn disappointment as she recalled her first, only, and last, meeting with her Creator and rather than use her powers to turn her lies of Meteora being the mastermind into truth, she instead prompts for giving Sota hints in figuring out who killed Mamika. Though for the latter, it's pretty clear that she wanted to break him.
  • The Hyena: Prone to burst out into insane laughter of bemusement once something goes exceptionally well for her.
  • I Choose to Stay: Implied. We don't get to see what she's up to, but since she didn't return to her own story, it can be assumed she remained in the real world.
  • It Amused Me: She says she only seeks to make things more interesting for herself. Luckily for the heroes, she finds it more fun to see Altair lose.
  • Karma Houdini: Magane kills her own creator and later instigates the conflict Alicetaria has with the other creations, all for the sake of laughs. By the end of the story she undergoes something of a Heel–Face Turn and never faces any consequences for her crimes. It's even implied that, since she killed her own creator, she gets to remain in the real world, continuing to live her hedonistic lifestyle, though losing her powers much like Meteora according to Word of God.
  • Kick the Dog: She without the slightest doubt kills the seller in the bookstore, just for the sake of not paying for the picture book. And this is only the second scene with her participation. And let's not even mention the way she puts down Sota.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Since appearing on screen, she becomes the primary cause for almost every conflict in the show as it becomes more and more heavier. There was one conflict she didn't cause, but she took the end result and made it ten times worse.
  • Laughably Evil: Her Chaotic Evil antics are so over-the-top that everything she does is completely random. This makes her even funnier.
  • Let's You and Him Fight: Loves setting up "landmines" for people through her manipulation skills and truth twisting, setting up Aliceteria against Meteora in the span of minutes and a single conversation, among other things.
  • Living Lie Detector: Being a "pile of lies wrapped in skin" herself, she can instantly deduce whenever a lie is used, regardless if it is spoken or not.
  • Logical Weakness: Silence. Her ability falls flat the moment her lies turns into a monologue if there's nobody to trigger it, or if her enemies flat-out refuse to engage her in conversation. A weakness she's making her top-priority to get rid off in her pursuit for the power of the gods.
  • Manipulative Bitch: So far, her actions include feeding Sota's angst and self-criticism and Aliceteria's anger to undermine the heroes. Meteora and Yuuya catch up on the former, not so much on the latter.
    • She also read the source material of the other creations to help manipulate them, as shown when she pushes a Berserk Button of Yuuya's someone without intricate knowledge of his backstory wouldn't possibly know about in order to steal Hangaku.
  • Meido: One of her disguises and the one used when she approached Sota on the street after his meeting with Meteora, blending into the scenery flawlessly as she dons it.
  • Metaphorically True: Technically, she didn't lie at all about Mamika's death and did pass on everything Mamika begged her to say to Aliceteria as she died... she just presented it out of order to make it sound like Meteora killed Mamika instead of Altair.
  • Mon: Summons a dark creature to kill a bookstore worker.
  • Motor Mouth: She never shuts up once she starts talking. Justified, as her rapid pace allows her to leave no room for her victims to think and end up getting carried away by her words, allowing her to use her powers on them in the process.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: By utterly breaking Sota's psyche apart in an effort of planting a "landmine" in the government's team of Creations, she also shatters all of his mental defenses which kept him from open up to others about his Dark Secret, allowing him to finally tell Meteora about it while in tears afterwards.
  • Noble Demon: Claims that she's "of noble heart" and that everything she does is without hatred as she utterly lack that feeling to begin with, reinforcing her image as a "chaotic force" rather than a "villain", being true only towards herself in the process.
  • No-Sell: One of many uses for her ability, as witnessed when used against Yuuya's sword, and once the immunity has been set, it sticks for as long as Magane does.
  • Not So Different: Tried to give that one to Sota. It didn't take; he simply acknowledged her point and the conversation went on.
  • Obviously Evil: She sports a Red and Black and Evil All Over schoolgirl outfit, black gloves with pentagrams drawn on, and sports a Slasher Smile and evil eyes to boot.
  • The Omniscient: Claims that "Magane knows anything and everything" when asked by a terrified Sota about how she knew his name. How much of her claim is true depends on whether she's called out on it or not.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Her hair usually covers the right side of her face.
  • Pet the Dog: In episode 18, she is surprisingly nice and helpful to Sota. First, she attempts to deconstruct Sota's reasons to stop Altair but after seeing he will not yield, she gives him vital, yet cryptic information that will help him against Altair. She then lets Yuuya have Hangaku back without much of a thought. Hell, she even hugs Sota!
  • Psychotic Smirk: Prone to make this, especially when her opponent springs her trap.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes past her waist.
  • Reality Warper: Her ability allows her to alter reality by turning her lies "inside out" into truths through exposure to more lies. The fact that it needs two people to take effect prevents it from becoming a Story-Breaker Power by itself, something she seeks to correct in her masterplan to become a "God" of chaos.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Has a habit of wrapping up her speech with rhyming couplets.
  • Scary Teeth: She has shark-like teeth, making her all the more unsettling.
  • School Uniforms Are the New Black: She goes around wearing her black Sailor Fuku all the time.
  • Self-Made Orphan: In a sense, as she kills her creator both for personal amusement and an a failed attempt on removing the limiters surrounding her ability by editing her own character with his computer.
  • Sherlock Scan: She's able to figure out what Sota's Dark Secret is just by looking at him, then proceeding to tell him what it was.
  • Slasher Smile: Wears one all the time.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: Spends a lot of time following Sota around. She believes he is the key to getting her the power she wants.
  • The Starscream: After the real world starts to change her, she ditches Altair and decides to do her own thing. She wants Altair dead and out of the way. One can't rule reality if it's all destroyed after all.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: A fictional character with reality-warping powers brought to life who also happens to have yellow eyes to emphasize her inhuman nature.
  • Take Over the World: What she decides is newfound purpose in the real world.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech:
    • During her first dialogue with other Creations, she openly makes it clear to Aliceteria that she considers her the hypocrite and the same killer as herself.
    • Gives two pretty nasty ones to Sota in episode 8 and 9. The effect it has on him is horrific.
  • Third-Person Person: She often uses "Magane-chan" as a substitute for "I".
  • Trademark Favorite Drink: Milk, to the point there's nothing else in the refrigerator of her apartment.
  • Troll: She got excellent skills in getting her targets pissed off enough to say something they really shouldn't while talking to her. Much to her delight.
  • Uncanny Valley: Her design is already slightly different than the rest of the characters, making her seem a little off when she's standing next to them. Her eye movements are shown in detail and are extremely unnatural. Played completely straight later on. While she normally has a Slasher Smile, the way her face contorts pushes way into this trope. It doesn't look right at all.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: She is the only Creation who survived the events of the series to remain unaccounted for, being last seen preparing to catch a plane at Haneda Airport and helping Sota to manifest Setsuna in the Elimination Chamber Festival as a Creation.
  • Wild Card: Gives zero shits about taking sides in the grand scheme of things and would rather spread chaos for personal amusement instead.
  • Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: Being treacherous and sneaky is a big part of her character. Her yellow eyes only make that more clear.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Purple in her case.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: She wears Grade A black thigh-high stockings.

    The Hound of Tindalos 

The Hound of Tindalos

A monster that Magane created to kill a shopkeeper.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Is never seen or mentioned again. Word of God eventually revealed that it will vanish back to where it came once Magane's powers, which substained its existence in reality fade away completely.
  • Eldritch Abomination: It is from the Cthulhu Mythos, after all.

Selesia's love interest and the male protagonist of Elemental Symphony of Vogelchevalier.


  • The Ace: As the protagonist of fantasy light novel, he definitely is. In the Elimination Chamber Festival, despite Selesia and Rui teaming up against him, his fighting prowess outclasses the former's, and he is able to seriously debilitate the latter. Selesia has even flat-out admitted that attempting to defeat him in a straight fight is an exercise in futility.
  • Always Someone Better: He is this to Selesia, as she was always the one following behind him in their source material. Selesia herself even admits that she cannot defeat him in a direct fight.
  • Anti-Hero: Charon has always been a good character who wanted to save his world from evil, but he is forced (or he thinks he has to) to side with Big Bad of story, thinking that this will help him save his world.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: After noticing that Selesia would often trail behind him, he deliberately invokes this trope in his source material, stating that if she was always facing his back, she could help protect it.
  • Blue Is Heroic: His outfit is predominantly blue. The "heroic" part is subverted when Altair brings him to the real world.
  • Death by Genre Savviness: He knew perfectly well that he was the only person who could save his world, so when he despaired, he went to our world after Altair. This does not work the way he expected, and becomes the cause of his death.
  • Death Is the Only Option: He dies with Selesia after she concludes that their death is the only possible way to stop their fight and remove protection from Altair.
  • Dual Wielding: Unlike Selesia's Vogelchevalier, which wields one long sword, his version wields two shorter ones.
  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: Has these when he hits into the Elimination Chamber.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He is seen early on in promotional material for Elemental Symphony of Vogelchevalier, alongside Selesia.
  • Expy: As a collective image of fantasy light novel male leads, he has huge similarities to Sword Art Online's Kirito as he's one of the most famous Trope Codifiers for their characters. He shares Kirito's Ace personality, the use of Dual Wielding swords, a black suit and even the same poses on the posters of their anime. In the real world, however, the similarities only remain in their weaponry.
  • The Faceless: Despite the fact that viewers have already clearly seen his face in commercials for his source material, it is still nonetheless shrouded in shadows during his first in-person appearance in the series.
  • The Hero: The primary heroic character of his anime, sharing the role with Selesia. Subverted in the real world, given his choice to side with Altair. This is lampshaded by Kanoya, who notes Selesia turned out to be way more of a hero than Charon.
  • Hidden Depths: Matsubara notes that Charon's despair is the result of his personal development outside his world and overcoming the idealistic settings of his original work.
  • Heroic Fatigue: He confesses in the 19th episode that he despaired of fighting increasingly powerful opponents, in response to which Kanoya notes that he is afraid of the responsibility entrusted to him.
  • Humongous Mecha: He has his own version of the Vogelchevalier, which he deploys in episode 18.
  • Implied Love Interest: It is strongly implied that he is the Love Interest of Selesia, given her reaction to Sota reciting one of his lines to her, and a well as the fact that they are both the main characters of the light novel series they came from. Eventually confirmed in Episode 19 when she admits she has always looked up to him and has been hiding her feelings for him for a long time. Right after she says this, he bitterly notes how ironic it is that she has now turned out to be the biggest obstacle standing between him and saving Earthmelia.
  • I Will Fight No More Forever: He develops this attitude once he enters the real world, wishing to use Matsubara's abilities as a Creator to instantly resolve all the issues in his world, just so he doesn't have to fight anymore. It's not framed positively, however, as this means that he cannot be talked into siding with the protagonists against Altair, nor will he care about any attempts by the other Creations to reach out to him.
  • I Will Find You: He enters the real world to find Selesia and bring her home.
  • Knight In Sour Armor: He is this in his source material, being depicted as a world-weary man who is tired of fighting, but refuses to quit for the sake of saving his world. His Character Development following his entrance into the real world, however, intensifies his world-weariness to the point that he want to use the power of the Creators to solve all the problems in his world in one fell swoop, just so he can give up on fighting for good.
  • Multicolored Hair: His hair is black on its exterior, but cyan on its interior.
  • Oblivious to Love: Selesia hints in the 19th episode that he did not notice her feelings, despite the fact that they were pretty obvious. He is impressed when she finally confesses.
  • Sixth Ranger: Altair summoned him at the beginning of the second arc as a new member of her command and a weapon against Selesia.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: The 19th episode plays it almost straight when Selesia is forced to kill herself with him, after she could not persuade him to go over to their side and stop defending Altair.
  • The Stoic: Although his "original" version is explicitly implied as Nice Guy, he says only a couple of lines when he enters our world and does not interact with others.
  • Walking Spoiler: Discussing his involvement in the story at any length is going to be hard, given how he joins the cast in the second half.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He is not the only one of Altair's supporters who understands that she is Big Bad, but at the same time he is the only one who tries to achieve good and save his own world by supporting her.

Sho Hakua

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sho_hakua_anime.png

Yuuya's rival and the protagonist of Underground Dark Night.


  • Ambiguously Evil: Like Yuuya, his side is pretty ambiguous, so, despite the alleged Anti-Hero status, the show portrays him as an impudent and slightly silly young guy, who is ready to join an obvious villain for the sake of fight with his old friend. When he knows the truth about Yuuya, he joins the heroes’ side.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: A rare example of a "protagonist" being portrayed as this; however, in the show itself, it is played straight since Yuuya has more focus in the story, and since Sho is the less focused on rival, hefulfills the same role a standard AKG would.
  • Bifurcated Weapon: He fights with a Simple Staff that can split into three-segment nunchaku.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: He joins the heroes in Episode 19 after Yuuya and co. defeats him, finished by Yuuya throwing a spoiler at him.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Even before we see him in the story, he appears along with Yuuya on the advertising poster of their manga.
  • Enemy Mine: Decides to side with Altair simply because Yuuya sided with the protagonists.
  • Guardian Entity: Like Yuuya, he has one, known as Bayard.
  • Foil: Obviously to Yuuya. They are both hot-tempered young guys who knows martial arts and are able to evoke a mystical helper, but while Yuuya looks like a good Cool Big Bro with a caring personality, Shou is portrayed as a rude and cynical guy. Also, while Yuuya is quite insightful into the nature of the real world and embracing of how he's changed after arriving there, Sho is still operating as if he's still in his show, with only a single-minded goal of fighting Yuuya. Until the truth about his sister's death comes out, anyway.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Altair does this to Bayard with her swords, causing it to disappear.
  • Misplaced Retribution: He believes Yuuya killed his sister and his best friend, which is why he wants to take revenge on him. Truth is Yuuya is innocent. The real killer was the fortune teller that gave him Bayard in the first place.
  • Our Centaurs Are Different: His Guardian Entity, Bayard, can best be described as a mechanical figure that is centaurian in appearance.
  • Revenge: Yuuya killed his younger sister and he's going to take revenge on him for it. When the real killer is revealed, he reconsiders.
  • Synchronization: Any damage inflicted upon Bayard is also felt by Sho, as Altair demonstrates when she impales Bayard and disintegrates it.
  • Unwitting Pawn: He finds out he's one in his own manga, where a Fortune Teller tricked Sho and lied to him about Yuuya to use Sho for his own plans. Needless to say, Sho is not happy to know that.
  • We Used to Be Friends: He was once this with Yuuya, until the latter murdered his sister. Once Yuuya reveals who the real killer is, they start to amend their friendship.
  • Walking Spoiler: Same with Charon, he ends up joining the cast in the second half, making most of his tropes this.

Hikayu Hoshikawa

Voiced by: Shiina Natsukawa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hikayu_hoshikawa_anime.png

A heroine from the all-ages version of adult dating sim game The Milky Way of a Starry Sky.


  • Anime Chinese Girl: Her "combat" form is meant to evoke this image, what with her Qipao, dragon-themed nunchaku, and new martial arts skills.
  • Bifurcated Weapon: After her upgrade, she wields a pair of nunchaku that can turn into an Epic Flail.
  • Bleached Underpants: She originates from an H-Game that was later ported to an all-ages version.
  • Cleavage Window: Her battle Qipao has an opening that exposes her cleavage.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Rose hair and eyes.
  • Cute, but Cacophonic: Has a voice that is very high pitched.
  • De-Power: Altair erases her power upgrade, turning her back into a normal schoolgirl.
  • Establishing Character Moment: She approaches Selesia and Rui asking them for directions to a police station as she's holding what is assumed to be a lost dog and child, then reaffirms her status as a Creation by stating she doesn't know where she is.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: The stockings of her battle outfit are different colors.
  • Foil: To Mamika. While she has no superpowers or combat experience to speak of, Mamika is a Magical Girl and probably one of the strongest Creations to be brought to the real world. While she is a Shrinking Violet who is rather wimpy and easily bursts into tears, Mamika quickly demonstrated a courageous side and was unafraid to defend her beliefs to the death. While she sided with the protagonists, Mamika sided with Altair. While her source material was a H-Game that later had its explicit content removed to market it to a younger audience, Mamika originated from a kid-oriented television show.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She wears her hair in a pair of twintails.
  • Hair Decorations: The red ribbons she uses to tie her Girlish Pigtails.
  • Hair Intakes: The two "cat ears" that are part of her hairdo.
  • H-Game: Her source material is this.
  • Innocent Bystander: After Altair removes Hikayu's powers, she flat-out states that Hikayu has been reduced to this.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Prior to her appearance in the real world, Selesia assumed that all Creations followed a specific pattern, namely that they possess some sort of superpower and/or are already experienced in combat. Her presence violates both of these assumptions.
  • Love Interest: Not to anyone in the real world, but to the protagonist of her source material. She is even seen kissing this boy in the second opening.
  • Minidress of Power: Her battle upgrade gives her a revealing Qipao minidress. She's not happy with it.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Averted. Despite the nature of her original work and the first impression of others, she is a shy girl, who cries even from the thought that someone saw her panties. In the Hot Springs Episode, she's the female character we get to see exposed the least. It gets played up when she's given an upgrade that includes a skimpy Minidress of Power.
  • Nice Girl: As we can see with the very first time we see her. She went out of her way to help a lost dog and child despite her not having idea where she is.
  • Open Secret: Due to the nature of her source material, several events about her character that should otherwise be highly intimate and personal are public knowledge in the real world, much to her distress.
  • Ordinary High-School Student: As a heroine of an H-Game, she must symbolize a realistic attractive schoolgirl.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Virtually all of her participation in the plot is fanservice and jokes of varying degrees of vulgarity. It's downplayed at the end of the show, when she becomes a fighting character and begins to influence events.
  • Prone to Tears: She breaks into bouts of crying at the slightest provocation.
  • Reluctant Fanservice Girl: She literally cries because many people in the real world know all the details about her sex life with her boyfriend or that the original game contains a lot of fanservice with her. She's also clearly embarrassed to death when she's made fight in a Stripperiffic dress.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Has pink hair and is just as kind and caring as Mamika.
  • Shockwave Stomp: She gains this ability after her modification, becoming capable of creating potholes in the ground by stomping.
  • Shrinking Violet: Is notably rather shy.
  • Stripperiffic: The Qipao in her combat form is so open that it looks like a uniform for role-playing games.
  • Super Strength: After her modification, she becomes strong enough to kick aside Charon's mech.
  • Supernatural Martial Arts: After her Creator modifies her.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: A kind-hearted girl with pink hair and Girlish Pigtails? She seems to be taking Mamika's place.
  • The Team Normal: Of all the Creations, she is the only one who lacks abilities suited for combat. Her Creator is working to fix that. And he does, by giving her Supernatural Martial Arts.
  • Tender Tears: She's quick to burst into tears when embarrassed.
  • Took a Level in Badass: From a regular schoolgirl from a dating sim game to a powerful supernatural martial artist. After her upgrade, she gets a new set of powerful fighting skills and can assist Yuuya in battle. She can even repel Charon’s Vogelchevalier easily!
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Her Creator (aka "Father") is basically a bipedal rodent while she is, to quote the man himself, "Perfect!" Unfortunately for her, he also hasn’t got the "parent" part through his thick skull yet.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has rose-colored hair.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: She wears thigh-high stockings.

Blitz's daughter, killed in-story before Blitz appears in our world.


  • Back from the Dead: Suruga resurrects her using Meteora's magic to get Blitz's assistance in defeating Altair.
  • Children Are Innocent: Her whole nature is maximal cute and innocent, although it is invoked so-as she should symbolize the Morality Pet of her father.
  • Cousin Oliver: Appears closer to the end of the show as the youngest and cutest representative of Creation.
  • Go Out with a Smile: In her original story, she gave out a smile before her father pulled the trigger on her.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: Own father is forced to demolish her head with a shot from his powerful gun to stop her suffering as a person implanted in a dangerous superweapon as an operating system.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: For obvious reasons, she is the meaning of Blitz's life, to the point that he is ready to destroy our world only because his creator allowed her to die.
  • Loophole Abuse: Magic doesn’t exist in Code:Babylon world, but as it is the part of the shared universe of Chamber Elimination Festival, Suruga can use Meteora’s magic to resurrect her.
  • Missing Mom: Although due to her differences in appearance with Blitz, it is implied that she is more like her mother, we never see or hear a single mention of her.
  • Morality Chain: Without Erina, Blitz doesn't care to assist Altair in destroying the world. With Erina back, he immediately joins the good guys' side.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes past her knees.
  • Walking Spoiler: While she is briefly mentioned in the early half of the show, knowing that Blitz had to Mercy Kill her and her subsequent resurrection and materialization has her fall under this trope.
  • Wetware CPU: Blitz had to kill her because the villain of their manga used her mind and body as software for weapons of mass destruction.

    Spoiler Character 

Sirius

Voiced by: Aki Toyosaki

A last-ditch character created by Matsubara to stop Altair.


  • Assimilation Backfire: After she assimilated Altair, the latter was able to take over her body due to her lack of personality. Altair's acceptance by the audience, which dwarfed Sirius', also played a role in allowing the former to win out.
  • The Assimilator: Sixty-Sixth Movement of the Cosmos: "Existence Change" allows her to synchronize her Existence Coefficient with that of another character, and then take that character's place in the universe, whilst subsuming the other character's existence. In a rare heroic example, her purpose is to alter Altair's nature by subsuming her and taking her place.
  • Blade on a Stick: A double-bladed laser stick.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Just like Altair, her pupils are square-shaped.
  • Flat Character: Because her personality has not been fully developed, she can only accept orders from Meteora, and barely has any capacity to speak. Altair uses this at her advantage to overwrite her personality when the heroes attempt to make Sirius take her over.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She sports twin tails, just like Altair.
  • Godzilla Threshold: She was conceptualized by Matsubara as a secret weapon to use against Altair should the power augmentations given to the other Creations prove insufficient to stop her.
  • Good Counterpart: To Altair.
  • Grand Theft Me: Subverted. Although Altair manages to take possession of her body, after she becomes a "spirit", Sirius does not have her own personality or soul.
  • Heroic Willpower: Averted, as having no personality means that she doesn't even have this, and thus has no way of preventing Altair's existence from reasserting itself after her assimilation of the latter.
  • Meat Puppet: Downplayed. She is obviously a living person from flesh and blood, but since Matsubara is hurried to create her, she does not have a personality; Meteora can control her like a doll.
  • Moveset Clone: To Altair, having a similar design and being able to use the Movements of the Cosmos.
  • Plot Device: Lampshaded. She is less an actual character and more a weapon to be used against Altair. This is the exact reason she failed to stop Altair, as her lack of characterization and sense of self means that she is powerless to prevent Altair from seizing control of her body after the latter is assimilated by her.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Same as Altair, her hair goes all the way to her feet.
  • Self-Insert Fic: Invoked. She's referred to by the others as the SI appearance because she's a Mary Sue insert character for Meteora to fight Altair on equal ground.
  • Stellar Name: Her name is the brightest star in the Earth's night sky.
  • The Voiceless: Due to her underdeveloped personality, Sirius never talks. Her only line is to call out her "Existence Change" attack.
  • Walking Spoiler: Knowing just about anything regarding her spoils the events of the Elimination Chamber Festival up to the point she manifested. She's also one In-Universe as well, as her existence was kept under wraps until her manifestation to prevent Altair from learning of her beforehand and devising countermeasures against her.
