  • Back from the Dead: All of the Reality Characters reappear in the real world after ending up in Library, and have gotten new powers as a result in the Fusion Arc.
  • Cast Full of Crazy: Considering that they have to murder everyone in the Library in order to fulfill their wish, it's a requirement. They're all deranged in their own ways.

  • Classified Information: Most if not all of the characters' concept art that's shared on the internet has some blacked out text.
  • Color Character: Snow White, symbolizing her purity with the connotation of emptiness, and Red Riding Hood, symbolizing her spirited and violent nature.

    • Meanwhile, Parrah and Noya are associated with Gold and Silver respectively.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Sleeping Beauty, Pinocchio and Red Riding Hood.
  • Cute and Psycho: They're all illustrated to be cute thanks to the character designer Jino, and madness breaks loose in any story authored by Yoko Taro.
  • Dark Action Girl: Some of them have a dark color scheme in accordance with their darker nature.
  • Darker and Edgier: No one kills anyone in their original stories. Though it can be a bit zigzagged depending on whether you're considering the modern version or the historical versions of some of the fairy tales, since the historical versions can be quite dark as well.
  • Demonic Possession: Their Sin Half-Nightmare jobs has them possessed by the Sin Spirits as seen in the Anniversary events and Giant Raids. Downplayed with their usual Spirit Jobs with the aura of the Sin Spirits fusing with them instead of a complete takeover.
  • Driven to Suicide: The fate of 5 characters in the Reality Arc: Alice, Little Mermaid, Gretel, Pinocchio and Three Little Pigs.
  • Dysfunction Junction: Every single character is insane in some way.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: The Library world's lore labeled these characters "Characters".
  • Fireball Eyeballs / Peek-a-Bangs: Variation. Each of the characters' Half-Nightmare jobs have one eye covered or obscured in some way. The only exceptions are the Sin Half-Nightmare Jobs.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: The Half-Nightmare jobs give them these accordingly to each of their respective eye colors.
  • Gotta Kill Them All: Each character is going to have to kill all the others eventually, in order to collect enough Inochi to fulfill their wishes.
  • Holiday Mode: Some of the Characters have Jobs for holiday-related events, mostly named after the holiday in question:
    • The Wasou/Kimono Jobs for New Year's Day - Alice, Cinderella and Red Riding Hood get theirs for 2018, Snow White, Kaguya and Aladdin for 2019 and Dorothy, Gretel and The Three Little Pigs for 2020.
    • Valentine for Valentine's Day, exclusive to Alice and Nutcracker in 2019 until the 2020 event added Snow White, Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel to the roster.
    • Halloween, which began with Cinderella and Little Mermaid in 2018, followed by Aladdin, Gretel, Pinocchio, and Nutcracker in 2019.
    • Christmas saw 2 different jobs for the season; the 2018 event had X-mas Jobs for Snow White, Red Riding Hood, Nutcracker and Pinocchio while the 2019 event had the Travelers Jobs for Alice, Kaguya, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: They can freely switch any weapons mid-battle.
  • Improbable Weapon User: The premise of the Mage Job, which has them wield Artifacts in every shape and size ranging from typical magical objects such as crystal balls and jewels to banners, toys, and even a telephone.
    • Certain weapons they wield in other jobs are also a bit questionable in design.
  • In the Hood: Red Riding Hood aside, some of the job designs involve hoods; the Sorcerer job in particular.
  • It's Personal: Their motivations in reviving their authors all stem from their personal desires.
    • It's All About Me: Most, if not all, of the characters' wishes are considerably selfish and only serve their own personal goals, despite what could've been if their story didn't follow what their Authors have written.
  • Job System: All jobs have a unique outfit and lore behind them for each of the girls.
  • Kimono Fanservice: New Year-exclusive jobs give the Characters kimono outfits. So far, it's only limited to Alice, Cinderella, Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Kaguya, Aladdin, Dorothy, Gretel, and The Three Little Pigs.
  • Lack of Empathy: Many of the Characters demonstrate an inability to understand the emotions of others outside of the context of their own emotions and intentions. This is particularly prominent in crossover chapters, as characters will blatantly disregard the responses and desires of others in order to further pursue whatever personal goal. Maybe it's that they just don't care.
  • Let's You and Him Fight: The Library and Reality versions of the Characters, following their encounters in the Fusion Arc, end up fighting each other to the death in the Elimination Arc. While certain pairs, such as the two Red Riding Hoods, do end up being friendly to each other, ultimately only one can survive to the next round.
  • Little Miss Badass: Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Little Mermaid, Gretel, Three Little Pigs, Rapunzel and Little Match Girl.
  • Multi-Melee Master: Breaker, Crusher, Paladin and Gunner classes allow the Characters to wield swords, greatswords, katanas, hammers, spears, guns and bows all at the same time.
  • Musical Assassin: The Minstrel job has each character use a musical instrument for a weapon.
  • No Name Given: They're unnamed in Reality Arc, being referred to as 'that boy', 'that girl', 'that woman', etc. Even in the manga, their names are censored with their Library names written on top.
  • Obliviously Evil: Pretty much almost everyone believes that what they're doing is right/necessary to revive their authors and fulfill their desires. Even when they're questioned or called out on their actions, they don't reflect on it.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Sleeping Beauty and Hameln are powerful Characters with purple Inochi.
  • Squishy Wizard: Cleric, Sorcerer, Minstrel and Mage classes allow the Characters to wield tomes, staves, instruments and artifacts. Except for Mages, they're the Support Party Member who assist the vanguards in battle.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: The Half-Nightmare job classes are basically these, to make things even worse as if being more violent than the original fairy tales wasn't enough.
    • Emphasis on the superpowered part since players are required to grind in the Grand Colosseum, which is limited to advanced players only, to redeem them via medals.
  • Stripperiffic: Every character (except Red Riding Hood, Nutcracker and Hameln) have at least one job which exposes more skin than the rest of their jobs.
  • Theme Naming: Each character has one weapon per job titled with the name of their respective concepts; Alice's Bondage, Snow White's Justice, Sleeping Beauty's Languor, Cinderella's Depravity, etc.
    • Their Reality version weapons are all named as "Meaning of" (JP)/"Intent (of)" (EN) followed by their concepts (example: Brutal Intent, Intent of Curiosity).
  • True Blue Femininity: Alice, Kaguya, and Little Mermaid have Inochi in shades of blue and wear blue clothing.
  • Weapon of Choice: The characters are normally pictured as a certain job, with their weapons being based on said job.
    • Their Reality versions also have a weapon on their own, which is based on their Inochi.

Alice

Reality 
Nightmare 

"Even if you break my right arm… or sever my left arm… even then, I won’t give up."
Voiced by: Mao Ichimichi

The titular girl from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, Alice seems to feel immense grief and denial over her Author's death and wishes to resurrect him, even if it means they'll never meet or that he'll hate her.

Her Concept is "Bondage"JP .


  • Above Good and Evil: It's implied that her motives are based more in intuition than morality, and that she believes that her actions aren't good or evil.
  • Alice Allusion: A more literal example. She is the character of Alice.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: A short-haired, dark blue-haired girl who refuses to be distracted from her goal.
  • Ambiguously Human: A meta variant. Although Alice is a character in Lewis Carroll's story, her Inner Monologue and lore feature more of her relationship with her Author than the Wonderland itself. This indicates that she may or may not be the actual Alice Liddell, a young girl who Lewis befriended during his life.
  • Bare Your Midriff / Underboobs: Her Sorcerer outfit probably has the bare minimum of clothing by far.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Her Reality Arc persona is hinted to have such a relationship with her sensei.
  • BFG: She carries one of these in her Gunner form.
  • BFS / Katanas Are Better: Her Breaker job main hand is designed based on katana.
  • Creepy Child: Her Paladin job lore stated that she rambles incoherently in the middle of the night and she frightened the nurses.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Her Half-Nightmare job lore tells of Alice's anxiety over her wish not coming true, and her despair twisting her determination to fight into mindlessly killing everyone, including her Author and herself in the end.
  • Determinator: No matter how many things she has to kill, how much it hurts, even if she'll never meet her Author again in the end, she won't give up.
  • Driven to Suicide: The reason why she wants to jump in the Reality Arc is because her sensei has left her.
  • Emotion Suppression: Her Minstrel weapon lore states that Alice resolved to discard her emotion in order to fight for the sake of her Author's resurrection.
  • Emotionless Girl: A sacrifice made to elevate her determination.
  • Feel No Pain: Alice stated that she feels no pain, because she knows that her wish to meet with her Author is cursed. This however gets averted as she become adept in combat and pain proves that she's both alive and sane.
  • The Fettered: As befitting her Concept of Bondage. Alice is bound to her author and her wish to resurrect him, regardless of how much she suffers or what the outcome of bringing him back will be. In the Reality Arc, Alice is bound by her relationship with her teacher and her pregnancy as a result of it, resulting in her committing suicide after he leaves her because she couldn't live without him.
    • This also applies to Alice's Reality Arc in the manga, where she chooses to remain bound by her promise of being together with her close friend even after she sleeps with the teacher she is in a relationship with. So much so that when her friend is about to jump off the school rooftop after murdering the teacher for leaving her, Alice tackles her off the roof and joins her in suicide, just to fulfill her promise.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: The fate of Reality!Alice at the hands of Library!Alice in the Elimination Arc, being sliced in two by the latter during their fight.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Her normal art and Reality Arc depicts her wielding a sword.
  • Headphones = Isolation: Her Reality version uses one. In the live-action CM, Reality version Alice is walking to the edge of a building, ignoring her surroundings, very likely planning to jump.
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: Alice's attachment and relationship with her Author is hinted to be motivated by this according to her Sorcerer weapon lore.
  • I Owe You My Life: This is Alice's reason to keep on fighting for her Author. She'll do anything for his sake since she's alive because of him.
  • Joshikousei: Her Reality version outfit is this with glowing wings and a glowing BFS.
  • Mayfly–December Romance: Alice's feelings toward her Author are hinted to be this in her Sorcerer job lore.
    • Her Half-Nightmare spear lore has a metaphorical story of a man and a woman in an affair, where the woman knew of the man's dishonesty yet she chose to deceive herself to please both of them. Left with nothing of what made her special, she clung to the man for dear life.
    • Her Reality Arc basically confirms this, as both stories allude to her relation with her sensei.
  • Meido: Jino commented that Alice's main job Breaker is designed with the idea of a maid-samurai combination.
  • Never Grew Up: Alice's Sorcerer main hand lore states the reason why her Author put restraints on her is because he feared the thought of seeing her grow into an adult.
  • No Name Given: Alice's Reality Arc persona is never named, and in the manga whenever other characters call her by name it is blanked out with Alice simply written on top.
  • Not So Different: Similar to Snow White. While Alice herself wants to revive her Author due to personal feelings, they've both placed faith in their creators and feel that the Authors deserve the fulfillment of living and being alive.
  • Not So Stoic: Reality!Alice loses it in the Elimination Arc following the events of the Fusion Arc when she arrives at her sensei's apartment... only for him to be killed beforehand by Library!Alice. Library!Alice on the other hand doesn't care.
  • Power Gives You Wings: Her Reality version gives her these.
  • The Promise: The Tome of Restriction lore states that she made numerous promises with her Author even though she's aware that he broke them. Yet she still keeps making more promises, otherwise she won't have a place in his heart.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning / Supernatural Gold Eyes: Either, depending on her character portrait and maybe the lighting. Played straight with her Half-Nightmare job.
  • Security Blanket: Carries one in her Child job art and refuses to put it down. In battle stages, she wears it like a cape.
  • Signature Headgear: She wears a blue hairband, with two long ribbons of flames. It borders on Animal-Eared Headband, being a reference to the White Rabbit's ears.
  • The Stoic: Described as "a silent blade", signifying her concept.
  • Teen Pregnancy: Due to her relationship with her sensei, which causes him to leave her.
  • Underboobs: Her Sorceror job has them peeking out of her top.
  • Undying Loyalty: Her ultimate reason to keep butchering Nightmares.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A for the most part, though it changes between job classes. Her stockings are sometimes also mismatched.

    Sleeping Beauty (Briar Rose)

"Haah… I’ll revive my Author after I… take a nap…"
Voiced by: Kaede Hondo

The Sleeping Beauty who isn't happy that the Prince woke her up. So much so that she only wants to resurrect her author to have him build a world where she can be asleep forever.

Her Concept is "Languor"JP .


  • Berserk Button: She really hates being woken up and is more than happy to give a death penalty to anyone who does so.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Despite being one of the most peaceful members of the cast, she will not hold back if you dare get in the way of her nap. The prince learned it the hard way, and even Parrah and Noya are frightened.
  • Children Are a Waste: Relating to her unwanted marriage in her Paladin job lore, Sleeping Beauty gave birth to two children and considered giving them to either a white wolf, a witch or a monster. They eventually got devoured by her husband's mother.
  • Dub Name Change: From Briar Rose JP  in the Japanese server to Sleeping Beauty in both the TaiwaneseCN  and Global servers.
  • Everything's Better with Plushies: Carries a plush doll in all of her Jobs except for her Half-Nightmare and Alternative Jobs. Said plushie is also dressed according to the Job in question.
  • Expy: She shares common points with Bedman. Both are young children related to the theme of sleep and fight with the help of a Mini-Mecha.
  • Flower Motifs: Her name and her Gunner job design put emphasis on the roses.
  • The Hedge of Thorns: The prominent element of her designs as a part of her name and a reference to the forest of thorns that surrounded Sleeping Beauty's castle to prevent the princes from reaching her. It's also the thing that keeps her standing while sleeping.
  • Ill Girl: Her Reality job has her hospitalized. Her job story reveals that she had been comatose for a while.
  • Lazy Bum: Her quotes say it all; she has her own motivations yet is also too sleepy to take any action. It takes Red Riding Hood to keep her awake out of fear of being killed while she's asleep.
  • Lotus-Eater Machine: Basically what she wants her Author to convert her story into. Her dreams are so much more fun and free from the troubles that come from being awake, her bed so soft and comfortable, that she doesn't want to return to reality ever again.
  • Lyrical Dissonance: Her Breaker main hand lore has her lullaby for her children containing her thoughts to whom she'll give them up.
  • Motivated by Fear: During her cross story with Red Riding Hood, it's the first time Sleeping Beauty keeps awake because Red Riding Hood outright tells her that she'll give Sleeping Beauty an eternal slumber if she falls asleep again.
  • Powers Do the Fighting: The shadowy briers she's always lying in are what do the fighting for her, so she can continue sleeping.
  • Power Floats: Her Sorcerer job artwork invokes this.
  • Really Fond of Sleeping: Oh, so very much. Her ultimate goal is to sleep forever and prefers the dream world compared to the real world. And woe betides anyone who dares to give her a Rude Awakening (except for Red Riding Hood).
    • This extends to her Reality self as well, but unlike her Library counterpart, Reality!Sleeping Beauty feels slightly guilty about it due to her sleeping illness making her parents worried.
  • Shout-Out: Her Paladin job story references Sun, Moon, and Talia, which is considered another version of Sleeping Beauty, in mentioning her having two children while still under the curse.
  • Sleepy Head: Exaggerated. The only thing she wants to do is sleep so much that she's unhappy with the prince and her children, wanting to have nothing to do with them as her sole motivation and final goal in killing Nightmares.
  • This Is a Drill: Her Paladin job design has her thorns wield a pair drill-like thorn lances.
  • Unwanted Spouse: According to her Paladin job lore, she's married to the prince and it's questionable on how they met or if she's truly happy with him waking her up in the first place.

    Cinderella 

Cinderella

Reality 
Nightmare 

"Rubbing salt in people’s wounds is such fun."
Voiced by: Eri Kitamura

Cinderella isn't content with how her story went. There's more that she could've done. She wishes to revive her author so that he'll rewrite her story and crown her king.

Her Concept is "Depravity"JP .


  • Ambiguously Brown: While the story of Cinderella is known to be set in France, Cinderella's skin color here is to signify her name's meaning, ashen.
  • At Least I Admit It: While most of the cast remain oblivious to their vices, be it deliberately ignoring them or otherwise, Cinderella downright indulges in hers and makes no excuses for herself.
  • Bare Your Midriff: All of her job designs do this to a degree, except for Kimono.
  • Being Tortured Makes You Evil: To put it simply, this is the story where Cinderella decided to get revenge for all of her life's miseries rather than just enduring until she got her happy ending.
  • The Caligula: What she wants her author to rewrite her as.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Reality!Cinderella is noted to use underhanded tactics to get what she wants. This ends up her undoing in the Elimination Arc because Library!Cinderella, who does the same things, can see it coming.
  • Dual Wielding: Her Breaker job mainhand.
  • Everyone Has Standards: She is one depraved woman, but even she gets unnerved by Gretel's unhinged behavior.
    Cinderella: (To Gretel) Word of advice, sister. Seek help. Professional help.
    • She's also greatly unnerved by Reality!Red Riding Hood's Sanity Slippage as her battle with her is more akin to survival.
    Cinderella: I prefer to play with someone less insane.
  • Expy: Of Yoko Taro's other brass, violent and foul-mouthed heroines, Kainé and Zero.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Some of her job designs give this.
  • Foil: To Snow White. Concept-wise, she is the depraved one against Snow White's righteous justice. The contrast extends to their respective color themes, with Cinderella being the ashen lady whereas Snow White is referred to as the white lady.
  • Guns Akimbo: Her Gunner job mainhand.
  • Horned Humanoid: Grows a pair of horns as part of her Gunner Ext appearance in the Elimination Arc.
  • Hospital Hottie: Her appearance as the Cleric.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Her Minstrel mainhand is a... tuba minigun.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: After the abuse she went through in her story and how "pitiful" she is, Cinderella feels that she is beyond saving and that her heart will never heal. But she'll make everyone else hurt so much worse, since why should she be the only one to endure the pain?
    • She also likes to gloat about how a lowly, dirty servant girl like her managed to woo the Prince and become the envy of everyone. The game even implies that she left behind her glass slipper on purpose just to have the Prince chase after her.
  • In-Series Nickname: Parrah and Noya call her 'Cinders' in their introduction to the Incarnation of Envy event and certain chapters of her main story.
  • Kick the Dog: Finds great joy and amusement in inflicting pain to others. Taken literally in one of her weapon stories where she shot a hound that was following her around since she killed its parents.
  • Mama Bear: During the Sanctuary of Nursery Rhymes event towards a Nightmare harming her 'kids':
    Cinderella: What the hell are you doing to my chibi?!
  • More Dakka: Oh yes, to a ridiculous level. As a Minstrel, she has a minigun and she has gun hammers as a Crusher.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: In her Gunner Ext job; her extra arms are made of her Inochi.
  • The Nicknamer: Usually refers to her fellow characters by anything but their actual names.
  • Not So Different: Frequently likes to pull this trope on Snow White to try and get under her skin, talking about how they are just two sides to the same coin. This ends up carrying some weight in that despite being after each others throats, they are able of impeccable teamwork.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Her bangs cover the right side of her face.
  • Pretty in Mink: Her Reality job has her decked in a rather luxurious fur coat.
  • Puppet Permutation: Her Half-Nightmare job has her transformed into some sort of puppet that is chained up and missing its midsection.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes past her hips. Averted with her Reality version, whose hair is short.
  • Revenge: She killed her stepmother and stepsisters for what they did to her, in a way that was "much too terrifying to speak of."
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Inverted; she's very much not this, instead being a sadistic vengeance seeker.
  • Sadist: Justified. She relishes in the pain of others as a way of relieving her own pain, which stems from the abuse she suffered from her step-family.
  • Slasher Smile: She gives this in every job illustration, save for Minstrel where her mouth is covered. Unless she does so underneath.
  • Swiss Army Weapon: Her Crusher mainhand is a gatling-hammer-gun.
  • Yakuza: Her Reality job story implies that Cinderella has connections to them, or at least, is part of them.

    Gretel 

Gretel

"Look, Hansel… look at me… look only at me…"
Voiced by: Maaya Uchida

Hansel and Gretel have met with a terrible fate. Now Gretel is off to revive her author, with only her brother's head in a cage to accompany her. She doesn't really care about the author and is only going on her quest because Hansel told her to.

Her Concept is "Delusion"JP .


  • Becoming the Mask: In order to cope up with the death of his sister, Hansel took upon her identity.
  • Believing Their Own Lies: Gretel insists that her brother is alive, even though the head she's carrying is a big giveaway for everyone who sees it. She is, however, aware that he doesn't talk.
  • Berserk Button: While Gretel mainly keeps what's on her mind to herself, poking around her brother is a sure way to trigger her violent urges caused by her traumatic memories.
  • Blade on a Stick: Her Reality Arc job mainhand.
  • Broken Bird: Traumatized by the disappearance of Hansel, Gretel has turned into an Empty Shell obsessed about her brother.
  • Chuunibyou: Reality!Gretel seems to be this as he sees his new powers gained in the Fusion Arc as a hidden potential which unlocked after his suffering in the Reality Arc.
  • Creepy Crossdresser: Gretel's Cleric job lore notes that she is identified as the incorrect sex.
  • Cross Player: In Reality Arc, Gretel is her game persona.
  • Driven to Suicide: How she died in Reality Arc.
  • Empty Eyes: Cinderella, while thinking about bullying Gretel for fun, realizes just how broken Gretel is by looking at her eyes.
  • Foreshadowing: Gretel's voice, while creepy, actually sounds closer to a male than a female. Book two, Chapter three of Gretel's story reveals that the Gretel the player knew is actually Hansel and the disembodied severed head is Gretel's.
  • Freak Out: Like her Berserk Button, Gretel doesn't take things well when her brother's safety is compromised, often blaming herself for everything bad that's happened to him, including killing him.
  • Hikikomori: Her Reality Arc persona.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Gretel will quite often muse on the concept of eating her brother, calling him "very sweet". She even offers to let him do the same to her.
  • Imaginary Friend: Her Cleric job lore has medical notes on her having a fictitious sibling, a product of her mind.
  • Institutional Apparel: For her Half-Nightmare job she is bound in a heavily stylized straitjacket. Fitting given the Superpowered Evil Side nature of the Half-Nightmare job.
  • It's All My Fault / Guilt Complex: Gretel blames herself for what happened to her beloved brother, something that was foreshadowed in her Crusher job lore where Hansel blamed himself and promised to save his sister after hearing their parents' plan to abandon them, and often wonders if her brother won't ever forgive her.
  • Loss of Identity: Gretel's traumatic past left her psyche damaged enough to actually deny her own true identity in order to escape her past.
  • Madness Mantra: Her Gunner job lore is basically spelling out her obsession with her brother, her feelings for him and everything that has brought misery for the both of them. The actual text is... madly long. And if one looks at the text closely, one can notice that Gretel slips at one point, mentioning "sister" and "kill" instead of "brother" and "love".
  • Mirthless Laughter: Gretel laughs when she eventually becomes aware that she's already broken because she's not Gretel but Hansel himself in the third chapter of Hatred arc.
  • Multicoloured Hair: Brown on the outside, green on the inside.
  • My Sibling Will Live Through Me: In order to cope with the death of Gretel, and perhaps the fact that he may have been responsible, Hansel impersonates his sister.
  • Self-Made Orphan: As far as she can recall, Gretel killed her parents for the sake of her brother.
  • Self-Serving Memory: Upon awakening in the Library, Gretel initially can't really recall what happened to her and isn't aware of who she is. As she proceeds, she only remembers that she has her brother with her and they've been having a lot of fun together. This turns out to be her own version of how things happened, produced from her denial, her feelings for her brother and her hatred for their parents.
  • Sibling Incest: Gretel is reeeaaally attentive to Hansel. While most of her monologues are quite mild about her feelings, her Sorcerer job lore just all but outright says it.
  • Split Personality: 'Gretel' is actually a personality created by Hansel in order to escape his traumatic memories.
  • Sweet Tooth: Gretel enjoys sweets with her brother, including her brother himself as she describes it.
  • Talkative Loon: She talks only to her brother's head, if Parrah and Noya aren't around giving information, and will not talk to anyone until they start to take her brother into the topic for any purpose.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: The person is Hansel. Gretel's head is in the cage. And Hansel might've been the one who killed Gretel, along with their parents.
  • Yandere: Gretel won't let anyone separate her from Hansel. Not even her own parents or Hansel himself.

    Kaguya 

Kaguya

"To suffer at the hands of a strong person is my ideal."
Voiced by: Shizuka Ito

The Bamboo Princess from the Japanese folktale The Tale Of The Bamboo Cutter. Kaguya dislikes being pampered like the princess everyone sees her as. It's her belief that a princess should serve the people, not the other way around. She wants to be tormented by someone stronger than her, and who else is stronger but her author?

Her Concept is "Masochism"JP .


  • All Men Are Perverts: Many of the men who came to court her would look at her lustfully, something Kaguya enjoyed since she yearns to be dominated by a man stronger than her.
  • Apologetic Attacker: She feels bad for killing the Nightmares and even sheds a few tears, but it's only because they don't put up a good enough fight to actually hurt her.
  • Blindfolded Vision: For her Minstrel job she dons a blindfold.
  • Boobs of Steel: She probably has the largest bust size of the cast, along with Dorothy.
  • Covert Pervert: Kaguya developed a masochistic streak as a result of her being raised by an old couple and detachment of any kind of relationships outside her family. At its peak, Kaguya only came to realize this tendency when she became aware of the lords' lustful gazes upon her.
  • Cursed With Awesome: Her Paladin job lore tells us that her existence is a blessing to her parents yet she terrifies other people.
  • Does Not Know Her Own Strength: She never realized how strong she actually is, as she had never wielded a weapon before she goes to resurrect her Author. Due to that, she usually ends up killing Nightmares that she thought would be able to hurt her, much to her chagrin.
  • Doomed Protagonist: As her Sorcerer job lore states, for her to be born into the unclean earth, Kaguya is doomed to come in contact with worldly desires.
  • Heel Realization: During the first arc, she realizes the Nightmares are too weak to fulfill her wish, leading to her realizing that her Author is the only one who can. With this comes the realization that she's not as innocent as she initially thought and that she's going to have to kill everyone to fulfill her wish.
  • I Should Have Been Better: She regretted not choosing any of the lords who proposed to her and imagined how wonderful it would have been to suffer at their hands, as she never wishes to return to the moon.
  • Impossibly-Low Neckline: Her top shows off quite a bit of her cleavage and her shoulders.
  • In Love with Love: Kaguya later resolved to endure all forms of pain to learn about love, for the world is filled with pain that is "love". She likes the idea of being in a relationship more for the sake of fulfilling her masochistic tendencies rather than actually wanting to be with someone, possibly because she thinks that being hurt means being loved.
  • Kimono Is Traditional / Pimped-Out Dress: Her Paladin design reflects on her being the only character from a Japanese 'fairytale'.
  • Little Black Dress: Wears a pretty revealing one in Reality Arc.
  • Naginata Are Feminine: Sports one with a flat edge and skeletal ornament.
  • Necromancer: Her Sorcerer job's lore and design reflect on this.
    • Her Cleric weapon story has her dabbling in necromancy, in hopes of finding someone who was able to hurt her. She didn’t succeed.
  • Pretty in Mink: Kaguya's dress in her Paladin and Cleric jobs sport a lion head decoration at the back, the mane becoming the fur design around her neckline.
  • Skeletons in the Coat Closet: Many of her job portraits incorporate bones and/or skulls into her clothes and weapons.
  • Stronger Than They Look: Kaguya wishes and expects to be defeated and violated by the Nightmares but as she begins to adapt in battle, she finds out that her body is strong and her mind is unshaken.
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: She refuses to be called a pervert, despite her masochistic tendencies.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: Taken to a pretty far extreme. She enjoys pain too much, to the point that it defines her desire to resurrect the Author. She even actively tries to find someone who will torment her during her quest, whatever that is.
    • Her desire branches from physical pain to mental pain, and later comes to associates love with pain itself.
  • Too Much Alike: With Pinocchio. They both want someone else to control them and are indecisive, so much of their crossover story is them asking "I don't know, what do you want to do?" back and forth.
  • True Blue Femininity: Jino commented that Kaguya is designed as an Oiran, a Japanese courtesan.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Submissive, demure and certainly not a pushover, but that last bit is what Kaguya's upset about. She wants to be an Extreme Doormat.

Little Mermaid

Reality 
Nightmare 

"I will teach you the value of tears."
Voiced by: Mamiko Noto

The heroine of Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid, a tragic story about star-crossed love. Little Mermaid believes that the greater the sorrow, the greater the story will shine. So to make her story even more beautiful, she wants to resurrect her author so that he'll rewrite the story to be even sadder.

Her Concept is "Misery"JP .


  • All Love Is Unrequited: She loved the prince so much that she even dared to make a Deal with the Devil so she could be with him. Too bad the prince didn't even remember who saved him and got married to another woman. This extends to her Reality Arc self who is in an adulterous relationship with a coworker. The man won her over by pitying her but was in fact only interested in having a younger mistress more than anything.
  • Body to Jewel: She cries pearls.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Most of her jobs (except for her Alternative, Halloween, Dragoon and Divine Prudence Gunner jobs) leave her barefooted.
  • Doomed Protagonist: Little Mermaid exchanged her voice in order to become human and win the prince's heart, knowing that her life is at stake if the prince doesn't love her back. Unfortunately for her, the prince didn't even remember her, dooming her to fail.
  • The Eeyore: Almost always crying and finds her situations (in-story and in the Library) to be incredibly sad. But it's still not depressing enough for her.
  • Extreme Doormat: Her office lady persona in the Reality Arc. Many men come after her due to her meek personality, not that she minds since for her it is simply a means for her to survive and fuel her sorrow addiction.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Little Mermaid didn't take it well when she found out that the prince had forgotten her, the one who saved his life.
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Has a Type: Prefers older men since they are easier to seduce into oppressing her whereas younger men make her resent her age.
  • In Love with Love: Her heart has become so broken that she associates her feelings of love with how much it hurts to be in love. So her pining for the prince is less actually wanting to be with him and more wanting to suffer, since being hurt makes her love shine brighter.
  • It's All About Me: During her crossover with Red Riding Hood in the Reality Arc, she left the heavily wounded girl to her own fate because the Little Mermaid felt she was much more pitiful than the young assassin.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Her Paladin job lore features a series of investigation records detailing how the current queen married to her once-prince now-king ruined the kingdom and his people lamented if only the current queen had NOT been the one saving the king back then.
  • Making a Splash: Many of her weapons use water in some way, or she manipulates water to use the weapons. It's implied she may be using tears.
  • Multicolored Hair: Subverted. It's her fins, actually.
  • Never My Fault: Blames the death of her superior in the Reality Arc on the old man rather than on herself for indulging the man in his asphyxiation fetish during a sex act.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: She saved the prince and exchanged her voice to become human, only to be forgotten and turned into sea foam.
  • Office Lady: In Reality Arc.
  • Our Mermaids Are Different: Her hair has her fins instead of her lower half.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes does past her feet, probably symbolizing her mermaid tail since it looks like she has fins in her hair.
  • Sailor Fuku: Most of her outfits feature a sailor-like design element. Interestingly, her Reality version lacks this feature.
  • Sensual Spandex: Her Sorcerer class ditches her Sailor Fuku inspired clothes in favor of an incredibly form-fitting bodysuit with a longcoat on top. Her Gluttonous Tiger Sorcerer class follows suit but without the longcoat and tinted red.
  • She's Got Legs: The only one with exposed legs in the cast's main artworks.
  • Stepford Smiler: Her Reality Arc persona is an office lady who works at a desk (possibly a secretary); part of her job consists of greeting everyone with a smile, regardless of how she actually feels. This is on top of having an adulterous relationship with one of her married coworkers, who is still wearing his wedding ring, yet she loves him nonetheless and is pressuring him into marrying her. As a result, being able to feel and display sadness is seen as a way for her to express her true self.
  • Team Mom: For Sleeping Beauty during the Late Summer's RecollectionsEN  event, as the clam that they rescued (and later nicknamed 'Sary'/'Lammy' by Sleeping Beauty) called Sleeping Beauty its sister and Little Mermaid its mother.
  • They Would Cut You Up: Dorothy's interested in her physiology, so naturally the former wants to dissect the latter. Little Mermaid is, obviously, not happy with this.
  • True Blue Femininity: Many of her job outfits has her in blue.
  • When She Smiles: Little Mermaid can actually be cute when she's smiling, though it might really be a Psychotic Smirk.

"I’m not too good at deciding things on my own."
Voiced by: Yuko Sanpei

The puppet that came to life from The Adventures of Pinocchio, he's been having a tough time suddenly having free will. He wants to resurrect Carlo Collodi, since the Author is the one who dictates everything that happens in the story, so he'd be the best one to tell Pinocchio what to do.

His Concept is "Dependence"JP .


  • Ambiguously Human: Pinocchio is a doll turned human who struggles to make a decision on his own, relying instead on others to give him orders. In Book One Chapter 4, Pinocchio realizes that he doesn't remember becoming a real little boy while his staff exhibits all traits associated to his doll self (foul mouthed, mean, nose growing when lying). Pinocchio's concept art hints at the fact that the staff might be the real Pinocchio.
  • Butt-Monkey: Due to his Extreme Doormat personality, he is often toyed with by people like Cinderella or his own staff. This extends to the collaboration event with Tsuri Star where he becomes the Damsel in Distress at some point, needing Snow White to save him.
  • Disappeared Dad: Geppetto has gone missing, as well as other characters from the story. The Cricket refuses to talk about the puppet to avoid going missing too.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Some of his designs enforce this, particularly his Paladin job. His Reality Arc appearance has him disguise himself up as a girl.
  • Expy: Pinocchio's situation in Reality Arc mirrors that of Nagisa Shiota from Assassination Classroom. Both are boys whose mothers wanted a daughter but because they were born male, tried to control every aspect of their lives by treating them as though they were girls instead. However, while Nagisa managed to resolve his issues with help from his classmates in Class E and Koro-sensei, Pinocchio, unfortunately, didn't have that same happy ending with him committing suicide in the end.
  • Extreme Doormat: He has trouble making decisions on his own, so he wants someone else to decide for him.
    "It is a puppet's fate to bend to the will of others. I may be a real boy now, but I still need someone to pull strings."
  • Green Thumb: His power in the manga, which he uses to grow a tree from a single branch in order to save Alice.
  • Living Weapon: His staff, which has a face and its own will, dragging Pinocchio around to get him to kill the nightmares. However, it stops talking when there are other people around.
  • My Beloved Smother: His mother in the Reality Arc is downright abusive. Unfortunately, their dependence on each other is mutual.
  • Never My Fault: Pinocchio blames the deaths he's caused on his staff since it's the one pulling him along. He never wanted to kill anything and he can't do anything by himself.
  • Thank the Maker: English-only; he's sometimes heard praying to the Blue Fairy who gave him life.
  • The One Guy: Until the release of Aladdin he was the sole male member of the cast. A bit downplayed if we count the reveal about Gretel..
  • Too Much Alike: With Kaguya. They both acknowledge that their goals are too similar for them to suit each other's needs but still wish each other luck when they go separate ways.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: A male variant, maybe because he's a young boy.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: His reality arc appearance has him dressed up as quite the convincing girl. Some of his class outfits, like the Mage, also have him dressing in very feminine clothes.

"One, two, three, four… and I can still kill many more…!"
Voiced by: Ayaka Imamura (2017-2018), Rika Tachibana (2018-present)

When Little Red Riding Hood was eaten by the Wolf and saved by the Woodsman, she was disappointed. She had wanted to play with the Wolf some more. She wants to play with her Grandma and the Woodsman too, but if she killed everyone then the story will end and she'd have nothing else to do. So she wants to resurrect her author, to have him continue writing the story so she can keep playing forever. She might even want to kill her author too.

Her Concept is "Brutality"JP .


  • Ambiguous Innocence: Red Riding Hood is actually more innocent in perceiving and reacting to events around her when compared to the other characters. This also makes her love of violence even more disturbing since she just does what she likes without any remorse like any child enjoying things that they love.
  • Animal Motif: Wolves, as a design element featured in her Reality and Half-Nightmare version.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Of all people to come to the rescue during the Fragment of a Nightmare event, Parrah and Noya summon her to save the story after Aladdin dies and Pinocchio succumbs to Hinamizawa Syndrome. She then proceeds to chase after Hanyu, who presented herself as Oyashiro-sama.
  • Blood Knight: Absolutely loves killing and fighting, even when her opponent is a shadowy copy of herself.
  • Bokukko: Uses 'boku' to refer to herself.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Her base weapon is a huge mace-like weapon.
  • Cheerful Child: She's the most lively character of the cast while also relishing in violence. Her Reality version, however, doesn't smile.
  • Combat Sadomasochist: To horrifying degrees in her Half-Nightmare job story. Her Half-Nightmare story has Red Riding Hood herself disembowel and hurt herself but she enjoys it all the same.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Some of her job costumes veer into this.
  • Expy: Her love of violence and killing just about makes her one for Caim.
  • Girl with Psycho Weapon: To say the least, any of her job weapons are these in association to her concept. Even the seemingly harmless tome that she wields as a Sorcerer is titled "Tome of Violence", which is a strong indicator for what's written inside.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: She's often on the lookout for new friends to play with during her travels, be they Nightmares or fellow Characters. Unfortunately for them, her idea of playing involves their violent demises, hence her wish for her Author to write her more durable playmates.
  • In the Hood: According to one of her job stories, the people of her town wore red to protect them from the shadows of the forest and the Beast of Night, explaining her red hood.
  • Improbable Weapon User / Shovel Strike: Her Alternative class has a shovel as her weapon. Ridiculous? Well according to history, shovels were often used as a weapon in WW1 and WW2. It's both effective and handy.
  • Little Dead Riding Hood: Inverted. She's the one who'll do the killing.
  • Little Red Fighting Hood: And does she love it.
  • Living Clothes: Her Sorcerer job outfit shows signs of it with two giant arms coming from her own cloak.
  • Loves the Sound of Screaming: One of her battle quotes is "Scream some more!".
  • Nekomimi: Becomes a glowing one in her Reality version.
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: Suffice to say, she simply doesn't seem to understand just how horrific her actions are to those that see her. Best exemplified in the Manga where she talks about how nice it is to meet Snow White again and how nostalgic it is, all while caving in her face and breaking her limbs one by one.
  • Nuns Are Spooky: Her purchase-only Cleric job reflects on this.
  • Professional Killer: In Reality Arc, she works as one.
  • Red Is Violent: Wears mostly red and enjoys in many a violent act. Heck, her Concept alone is indicative of this trope!
  • Sanity Slippage: Following the death of Library!Red Riding Hood, whom she considered a friend, Reality!Red Riding Hood starts going over the edge, causing her to transform into her Alt. Half job form.
  • Too Many Belts / Chained by Fashion: A lot of her outfits have a lot of belts and/or chains. Special mention goes to all those straps on her red hood.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behaviour: Hoo boy...

"I will live my life with a conscience as clean as the pure driven snow that falls from the sky."
Voiced by: Reina Ueda

On the day of the wedding between the Prince and Snow White her mother, the Evil Queen, was invited. Despite all that the Queen had done, Snow White still forgave her mother. But the Evil Queen repaid this forgiveness by murdering the Prince, driving Snow White to kill her. Since then, Snow White has become a firm believer in punishing evil. She wants to revive her authors due to a personal debt, in that she owes her existence to the Grimm Brothers' lives.

Her Concept is "Justice"JP .


  • Abusive Parents: Her mother is the Evil Queen but she wasn't always bad. Her obsession with beauty eventually drove Snow White into running away from home. Snow White even knowingly eats the poisoned apple in hopes that doing so might return the Queen to her kind self. Brutally subverted by the reveal in her Paladin job story. See So Beautiful, It's a Curse.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: She has white hair, whereas in the fairy tale Snow White has ebony hair. Averted with her Reality Arc counterpart who has the same ebony hair as the fairy tale Snow White.
  • Belly Dancer: Her Gunner job looks as if it takes heavy inspiration from a belly dancer aesthetic.
  • Blood-Splattered Wedding Dress: Most of her outfits reflect this. On her wedding day, she was splattered in the blood of the Prince and the Evil Queen.
  • Deadly Doctor: In her Reality Arc she is a nurse, Yukishita Miki, who secretly poisons several patients whom she viewed as criminals and bad people. She ends up killed by Akiyoshi Yura, a possible ancestor of Masayoshi Yura, out of revenge for one of her victims.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: According to the Paladin job story, even a maid had impure thoughts about Snow White.
  • Expy: She shares a similar moral pride and white color palette with One.
  • The Hedge of Thorns: Her Half-Nightmare job has this underneath her skirt.
  • I Am the Noun: She stands in her belief that she herself is justice, thus having the authority to bring it.
    • Her Half-Nightmare kob takes her belief and everything that she vowed and declared regarding justice to a whole new level.
  • In-Series Nickname: Gets called 'Snow' by almost everyone.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: As stated by her quote above, she vowed to live up to her name by enforcing justice and rejecting anything that might corrupt her.
  • Knight Templar: Believes her path to be righteous, so anything that gets in her way has to be evil.
  • Lady of War: All of her designs present her as dignified and elegant. Jino commented on designing her as a Monarch.
  • Never My Fault: Snow White insists on her justice even after killing the bird Nightmare and her children, claiming self-defense and to achieve her goal.
    • Her Minstrel job lore even gives the idea that Snow White herself rarely reflects on her justice and believes that she's just as justice itself.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: She declared that she forgave her mother, who brandished a knife at her at that very moment, only to be protected by the prince, who died in her place. This results in Snow White killing her own mother and her resolve to correct the world.
  • Not So Different: Similar to Alice. While Snow White is doing what she feels is the right and just course of action, they've both placed faith in their creators and feel that the Authors deserve the fulfillment of living and being alive.
  • One Degree of Separation: It's implied that Reality Arc Snow White is working at the same hospital that Reality Arc Sleeping Beauty is hospitalized in.
  • Prim and Proper Bun: Subverted with her Half-Nightmare job where she lets her hair down.
  • Pure Is Not Good: Her pure justice ideal leads to her zealotry.
  • Sinister Scythe: Her Paladin job main hand.
  • So Beautiful, It's a Curse: Played for laughs in her Cleric weapon story where Snow White is introduced to an erotic book about herself. Played straight in her Paladin's job story. Snow White's beauty mesmerized everyone in her country and beyond it. Faced with the threat of a giant blood bath caused by her daughter, the Queen decided to go through with her plan to get rid of Snow White.
  • Something About a Rose: All of her job designs have a rose present in one way or another.
  • The Stoic: Like Alice, but in a more dignified way.
  • Team Mom: Whenever she's with younger Characters such as Pinocchio in the Tsuri Star collaboration event and both Christmas events to date.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Her gray eyes signify her purity and cold demeanor while the black colouring in them reflects the black flames of vengeance flickering within her. Her Half-Nightmare job has her eyes combine the colors of blue and purple.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: With the death of the prince at the hands of her mother, whom she forgave just before the murder, Snow White swore to never again show forgiveness and to correct the world with her justice.
  • Undying Loyalty: She regards her Author(s) as her Master(s) and it's for their sake that she swore her loyalty and to bring justice to them.
  • World's Most Beautiful Woman: In her story, everyone wants her out of love and hate.
  • Would Hurt a Child: When confronted by the children of a Nightmare bird she recently killed, Snow White snapped and proceeded to kill them in the name of her justice.

"Try a sample!"
Voiced by: Rie Takahashi

From L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Dorothy is an inquisitive girl with an insatiable curiosity. So much so that she only wants to experiment with what the Land of Oz has to offer her. She wants to revive her author so that she can preserve his brain in formaldehyde.

Her Concept is "Curiosity"JP .


  • Batter Up!: Dorothy's Crusher job has her wield a baseball bat. Meanwhile, her Wrath Wolf Crusher job changes the bat for... a tennis racket.
  • Boobs of Steel: She probably has the largest bust size of the cast, along with Kaguya.
  • Braids of Action: Has one short braid and one long one, the longer one being around hip-length.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Her Alternative job weapon is a club made of golden-yellow inochi.
  • Constantly Curious: She's just that excited for her passion. See For Science! for details.
  • A Day in the Limelight: A Job Series in the Limelight, to be precise. Dorothy has her own job series known as 'Dorothy's Workshop', where she creates various gear for other Characters. In gameplay, they provide a large boost to their primary weapon type and a small boost to a secondary weapon type. The job stories of this series are additionally taken from her diary.
  • For Science!: She wants to dissect, cut up, and do various experiments on anything that gets her interest, just for the sake of knowing how it works and why. The only thing that matters to her is her research and anything else that moves is just material.
  • Genius Ditz: Looks to be one.
  • Genki Girl: Dorothy is always enthusiastic when it comes to looking for her experimental subjects. Her Reality version, however, ditched her cheerful demeanor.
  • Hot Scientist: Some of her outfits give the impression of this. Especially ones where she has a giant needle as a weapon.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Uses a giant syringe as her Gunner job main hand. Meanwhile, her Wrath Wolf Crusher job has her use a tennis racket.
  • Insufferable Genius: In the Reality Arc, she views her intellect highly and calls others stupid for not believing her theories. The Fusion Arc has her find test subjects for her experiments, citing 'not stupid' as one of her criterias.
    • Her Child class story also has this view, but it only serves to get her into trouble.
  • Mad Scientist: Her introduction PV has her voice excitement over the thought of collecting new samples in Library. Her weapon story has her test a drug of her own creation on living beings with the expected effect. Her Gunner job story implies she used the cast of The Wizard of Oz as her first test subjects.
    • Additionally, her weapon stories often involve her inventing something, ranging from weapons to concoctions. She eventually gets her own job series, the 'Dorothy's Workshop', where she invents all sorts of things for her fellow Characters.
    • This is also her persona in the Reality Arc: a college researcher who was expelled from the scientific association for her madcap experiments.
  • Man on Fire: Her ultimate fate in the Reality Arc: her time machine exploded, burning her to death and setting the apartment she lived in on fire. Her last thought before the flames consumed her was that she could always conduct experiments another day.
  • Meganekko: The only one in the cast until Hameln's release.
  • Messy Hair: Has a lot of hair sticking out despite being braided, including an Idiot Hair.
  • Token Wholesome: Sort of Reverse Enforced. While she is normally among the most conservatively dressed of the cast, Taro was told that "mobile gacha games don’t sell unless it shows plenty of skin". Though Taro being Taro decided that for her Cleric job, she is decked out in what basically amounts to some sort of Power Armor, Diving Suit, Steampunk hybrid, showing next to no skin whatsoever with only part of her face visible through the suit's visor.
  • Womanchild: Both her Library and Reality versions behave like this regarding their interests.

  • Grumpy Old Man: It's even his concept, "Gerontocracynote "
  • Joke Character: No one takes him seriously.
  • Living Toys: Technically, a wooden toy puppet brought to life.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Fusion Arc reveals that Nutcracker is actually another observer in a similar vein to Accord, Parrah and Noya. Being older than Parrah and Noya, he's witnessed more events than they did and reveals that Library has fused with Reality 44 times prior to the events of the Fusion Arc, the current events being the 45th time. To prevent Parrah and Noya suspecting anything about him continuing to record every event that happened within Library and eventually finding a way to stop them, he pretended to be a senile old man.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: He's the only Character to not have a gacha Job to his name, with most of his other Jobs being exclusive to events, and even then players can redeem him for free. He's also the only Character who does not have any Job Weapons because of this.

"We are the Three Little Pigs. We are good friends and sisters. We love to eat, but what we love the most are sweets!"
Voiced by: Aoi Yuki

The Three Little Pigs are sisters who love eating more than anything else, viewing it as something particularly special to them. So much so, they're willing to eat as much as they can, throw up, and eat again. Apparently, the Big Bad Wolf wasn't filling enough for them, so they're off to revive their author in the hopes of getting to eat more.

In battle, while all three appear together, one pig will be seen doing the actual fighting while the other two are in the background either eating and drinking, supporting their sister or copying her movements. This leads to unique battle animations that no other character has, not even the other duo units, Devola and Popola, King of Facade and Fyra and Fina and Dark Fina.

Their concept is "Gluttony"JP .


  • A House Divided: The 3rd Anniversary event has one of them contracting with the Proud Lion Spirit with the wish of not being hungry again while the other wields the power the black cat (possibly the same cat from the previous 2 anniversary events) gave her to stop her sister with the middle pig caught in between.
  • Big Eater: Loves to eat, and their concept is "Gluttony". The three of them are willing to eat as much as they can until they vomit, and then eat again.
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: The leftmost girl is the big one, being fairly plump. The rightmost one is the thin one, being somewhat skinny. And the middle one is the balanced one.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience:
    • The eldest (thin) girl wears blue/purple, the youngest (plump) girl wears green, and the middle girl wears red.
    • Their overall Inochi is light pink, as seen in their Half-Nightmare and Alternative Job weapons.
  • Disappeared Dad: In Reality Arc, they mention that they do not know who their father is. However, their Alternative Job story implies that they were followed by someone claiming to be their father.
  • Everybody Has Standards: After the youngest pig gains her power from the Proud Lion spirit in Little Pigs, the Three Wishes, she forgoes food preparation altogether and eats the Nightmares raw, freaking out her sisters. Usually, the trio would cook their victims before eating them.
  • Gender Flip: The original Three Little Pigs are boys.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Some of their weapons resemble utensils used for cooking and/or eating than anything. In particular, their Cleric weapon is a spaghetti server while their Minstrel weapon resembles a fork.
  • Is It Something You Eat?: When they encounter something new like Nightmares or Invaders, they usually ask this question.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Pig ears and a tail on each of them. Averted with their Alternative class, which is 100% human.
  • My Beloved Smother: Their mother in the Reality Arc, who is a famous actress herself, is very image-focused. She'd often push her daughters to do things that boost their, and by extension her, image. This caused a lot of stress on all three of them, and it didn't help that she favoured the middle daughter for being having a balanced weight compared to the other two.
    Youngest Little Pig: Can you dote on someone apart from your 2nd daughter?
    • The fact that all three refer to themselves as 'her accessories' doesn't help one bit.
  • Nice Hat: In all of their Jobs designs except for their Invader and Wasou jobs.
  • Obsessed with Food: Their heads are filled with nothing but the thought of food and eating.
  • Same-Sex Triplets: All three are identical save for their ties and weight.
  • Showgirl Skirt: In their Sorcerer class art.
  • The Slacker: During the Giant Raid that focuses on them, the more time they spend with the Sloth Bear spirit, the more they become this until they completely lack the motivation to do anything at all, fitting the spirit's sin.
  • Sweet Tooth: According to their introductory PV, the Three Little Pigs love eating almost anything, but they love sweets the most. Most of the time when they're talking about food, it's always a dessert, never something savory. Justified as they're young little girls.
  • Teen Idol: In the Reality Arc. The Three Little Pigs were child actresses whose mother is a famous actress herself.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Possibly the youngest members of the cast - their Alternative Job design implies that they're only elementary school kids when their story happened.
  • "Well Done, Daughter!" Girl: In Reality Arc, the Three Little Pigs were triplet child actresses who wanted to please their mother who only cared for appearances. To get her to love them equally, they often swapped identities and engaged in extreme weight control to the point where they consumed weight loss pills from overseas. Unfortunately, not only did they lose their sense of self-identity in the process, all three of them ultimately died from a nasty combination of eating disorders and overdose on the weight loss pills.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: They do, in their support Classes. The eldest and youngest pigs do too in their Gunner Class.

  • Bare Your Midriff: His midsection is exposed.
  • Battle Butler: During the Halloween 2019 event to compliment Hameln's design.
  • Butt-Monkey: On the receiving end of some unfortunate events in certain class stories such as the 2nd Anniversary's Luxury class stories where he's denied the chance to host the event by Parrah and Noya and Red Riding Hood's Amphibious Assault Ship Type class story where Dorothy 'sacrifices' him to be Red Riding Hood's playmate after the invention was delivered.
  • For Want of a Nail: His character description states that this is an Aladdin who is more interested in the riches than finding love in the princess in his tale.
  • Gold Digger: It's in his concept, "Parvenunote ".
  • Gratuitous English: Often sprinkles his speech with English words. Parrah and Noya would then comment that they have no idea what he's talking about.
    • Even as a child, according to Cinderella, he would often use 'difficult words'.
  • The Lost Lenore: It's heavily implied that while he loves money, he loved the princess just as much. So much so, when she fell ill and he discovered that the lamp was stolen, Aladdin went out of his way to get it back, only for the princess to have passed away when he returned.
  • Money Fetish: Aladdin is absolutely obsessed with money, believing that everything in the world can be obtained with enough money and desires to gain more wealth.
  • Ship Tease: With Hameln as part of the Banquet of the Butlers event.
  • Uncle Pennybags: Aladdin won't hesitate to spend money on others' happiness as well, ranging from funding Dorothy's experiments (leading to his Servant of Tin Job as part of the Dorothy's Workshop series) to providing an endless buffet for the Three Little Pigs in their crossover story. However, in the case of the latter, they go right back to hunting Nightmares to cook and eat when Aladdin is unable to answer their question of whether money can be eaten.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: His Invader job for the Space Invaders collaboration revival event has him revealing his entire upper body. Not helping is the fact that his shirt is translucent and his expression when his lamp pours water on him...

  • Flower Motifs: Yellow flowers are prominent in her designs, especially yellow roses. Bear in mind that in hanakotoba, yellow roses symbolize 'jealousy'. Her Half-Nightmare Job takes it Up to Eleven with her stomach being covered full of yellow flowers.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: A beautiful, innocent, pure maiden with golden hair.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Her Gunner weapon is a watering can. Which is of the Fire element. How on earth it works, no one knows.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Rapunzel's concept is "Purity"; her reveal trailer has her say she protects innocence. However, her 'purity' actually refers to her being incredibly naive - taking her prince's 'teachings'note  to heart and attempting it on both men and women, including her own mother, and possibly the Grimm Brothers as well when she revives them.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: To emphasize her purity.
  • Naïve Newcomer: What she's presented as in the beginning of her Hatred Arc.
  • Rapunzel Hair: It's Rapunzel, after all.

Voiced by: Tomoaki Maeno


  • Affectionate Nickname: Hana from the Concerto of Cherry Blossoms event calls him 'Mel'JP .
  • Animal Motifs: Spiders, according to his Half-Nightmare job design.
  • Covert Pervert: He looks dignified, but then his lines are sometimes... questionable. Especially during Banquet of the Butlers where he asks Gretel to step on him simply because of her nice legs.
    Gretel: Let's go, Brother. A pervert, not a witch, is here.
    • This gets a Continuity Nod in the Concerto of Cherry Blossoms event where he's still after her legs when they meet again.
  • Establishing Character Moment:
    • The first chapter in his Hatred Arc has him kill a Nightmare because he thought it was ugly to save a beautiful flower. After the Nightmare has been slain, he proceeds to eat the flower because he wants beautiful things in him.
    • His second chapter is basically a list of his beauty routines.
  • Expy: Of Sebastian in appearance. In fact, the producers have joked about wanting to release him on the same date as the launch of Twisted Wonderland, a Disney mobile game whose character designer is Black Butler's mangaka, Yana Toboso, but they got a bit impatient.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Most of his weapons outside of his Minstrel, Half-Nightmare and Kafun jobs resemble musical instruments more than the weapon they're supposed to be. For example, his Gunner job has him wield a crossbow in the shape of a violin while the weapon attached to his Consolation Prize (R02) job in commemoration of the 3rd Popularity Poll is a spear in the shape of an electric guitar.
  • Instrument of Murder: His pipe as a Minstrel, his debut Class. Which for some reason resembles a Sinister Scythe.
    • His pipe is traded for a cello in his Half-Nightmare class.
  • Meganekko: Always seen with glasses.
    • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Outside of expressing his love of beauty and hate for ugly, he is completely indifferent to the world around him, and this often causes trouble for other people who seek his help. In the Kafun event, he only cared about the girl because she was beautiful until he realized she sang poorly and smelled bad. In the Butler event, he only helped because the girl had pretty vocal cords. He even calls Pinocchio ugly for being dependent on others.
  • Multicoloured Hair: Has black hair with purple at the tip of his fringe.
  • Musical Assassin: Even more so than other Minstrel Jobs from other Characters as the majority of his weapons resemble musical instruments more than the weapon they're supposed to be saved for those, which are actual instruments.
  • Named by the Adaptation: The original Pied Piper was nameless. Here, he's given the name 'Hameln', after the town where his story happens.
  • The Narcissist: Only desires beautiful things surrounding him and is fixated on being beautiful. Par the course of his concept of "Aesthetics".
    • Cinderella even calls him as such in the Spring 2020 event Concerto of Cherry Blossoms.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes are a deep-red.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man Currently always wearing a snazzy suit to match his Butler aesthetic, sans his Kafun job, where he is wearing a pollen suit with swimwear clothing underneath, and even then it fits.
  • Ship Tease: With Aladdin, though likely as a developers' joke. Early ads of the Butler event and Hameln's release footage took a very interesting marketing approach with the two, even releasing a questionable sticker set with the event. Unlocking the full weapon story of Hinaka Hoshina's weapon in the Gems Company collaboration gacha even says that they look good with each other. With Hameln's concept being internet slang for Boys' Love in Chinese, make of that what you will.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": While most people spell his name as 'Hamelin', the game refers to him as 'Hameln', which is the German name for the town itself.

Nightmare 

Voiced by: Mayu Sagara


  • Abusive Parents: Like in the fairytale she comes from, her father would beat her if she failed to sell any matches.
  • Ax-Crazy: Not at first, but by the end of her Hatred Arc, she's taking sadistic pleasure in burning down anything that moves. It's bad enough that even the puppets are trying to stop her.
  • A Day in the Limelight: The Photography Banquet of Autumn Leaves event and the November 2020 Colosseum SP is focused on her.
  • Evil Laughter: At the end of her reveal trailer. Possibly making her crazier than Red Riding Hood.
  • Hellfire: Her concept.
  • Horned Humanoid: Has a hairpin resembling a single horn jutting out from the left side of her forehead. Said hairpin, according to jino, is made of phosphorus.
  • Lost in Translation: Her concept keyword is so far the hardest to translate - the kanji put together means 'hellfire' but when separated, the first kanji can mean 'business', referring to her selling matches for a living or 'karmic act', so her concept might also mean 'karmic fire'.
  • Naïve Newcomer: When first introduced, she's absolutely terrified of the Library, the Nightmares, and even Parrah and Noya, demanding explanations of what's going on.
  • Perpetual Poverty: Is constantly trying to sell her matches to earn money, and doesn't want to go home until she sells some.
  • Playing with Fire: Seems to be the case, as seen in her name and her Weapon of Choice. Her concept is 'Hellfire' after all.
  • Pyromaniac: The end of her Hatred Arc reveals that after all that she's been through in her own story and in the Library, she's or rather her Split Personality very much willing to burn everything to the ground with her matches/Molotov cocktails, up to and including her author for making her story a tragedy. And she enjoys it.
  • Rage Against the Author: Outright hates her author for all the shit he put her through. The only reason she's bothering to revive him is so that she can kill him herself.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Has red eyes and wields one of the most dangerous weapons seen in the game so far. This does not go unnoticed by Hameln in their crossover story; when she suddenly disappears, he becomes upset that he cannot have her eyes which he considers beautiful.
  • Split Personality: The Little Match Girl we see in the beginning is a meek girl who's scared of almost everything in the library, but come Chapter 4 of her Hatred Arc, it's revealed that she has another personality that serves as a self-defense mechanism that takes sadistic pleasure in burning everything to the ground. However, her non-sadistic personality does not have any memory of the other.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: She wields Molotov cocktails in her Gunner job.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Every Character in the Library is Ax-Crazy in one way or another, but she takes it Up to Eleven for being the sole Character with downright malicious intents for her author when she revives him.

Other Characters

    Parrah and Noya (Gishin and Anki) 

Parrah and Noya / Gishin and Anki (ギシンとアンキ Gishin and Anki)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/parrah_noyah.PNG
Parrah on the right, Noya on the left

Noya briefly voiced by: Kento Ito

Two puppets who serve as the game's navigator characters. They mostly appear in front of the Characters to give them instructions and to goad them into killing for the sake of their desires. Despite looking like children, both are incredibly foul-mouthed. Parrah is the female-presenting puppet wearing a white gothic lolita outfit while Noya is the male-presenting puppet wearing a grey lolita outfit.


  • Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: On occasion, with Parrah as the tsukkomi and Noya as the boke. This is more evident when pulling the Grimoire.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: As administrators of the Library, they're often the ones speaking to the player, ranging from exposition to being the Greek Chorus prior to events and raids with stories attached to them.
  • Butt-Monkey: Noya, ranging from losing body parts when pulling the gacha to being experimented on by Dorothy.
  • Connected All Along: According to a Global server Q&A, Parrah and Noya may be this to Accord.
  • Co-Dragons: While it's unknown whether they serve a higher being in the game itself, Parrah and Noya are seen addressing someone in the manga who's only known as The Game Master, the closest thing SINoALICE has to a Big Bad in any media.
  • The Corruptor: They are constantly trying to goad the cast into giving in to their vices and to keep on mindlessly killing nightmares. Some of the events also imply that they are the same with some of the sentient nightmares as well.
  • Creepy Doll: Their overall appearance, resembling children but with foul language.
  • Dub Name Change: From Gishin and Anki in Japanese to Parrah and Noya in Global to preserve the 'paranoia' pun in their names.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Jerkasses they may be, but even they know not to incur Sleeping Beauty's wrath when she wants to sleep.
    • When Little Match Girl's other personality is revealed after Hameln unknowingly activates it via attempting to take her eyes, they're terrified enough to want to stop her before she causes anymore dangerous destruction.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: Noya switching bodies with Laplace's Demon is what triggers the start of the Rose Maidens of the Mirror's Surface event, and if the both of them are unable to return to their original bodies, the worlds of SINoALICE and Rozen Maiden will not be able to seperate.
  • Greek Chorus: When the player starts an event with a story for the first time, they would usually appear to introduce the player to the setting. They then show up again at the end of the event's story when cleared for the first time.
  • Losing Your Head: When pulling the Grimoire, Noya would lose his head if the rope breaks. This usually means that the player just got a guaranteed SS/SR-rarity weapon/Nightmare in their pull. Sometimes he loses his head after certain dialogue which is followed by Parrah beating him up in one way or another, which gives the player an extra S/SS-rarity weapon in place of an A-rarity weapon. In the Recycle gacha, if Noya's head is dropped into the machine instead of the SS weapon the player wants to get rid of, one of their new SS-rarity weapon is of cost 19 and above.
    • Parrah loses hers for the first time during the SINoALICE concert after she lets her own desires take over her.
  • Obviously Evil: Red eyes? Check. Talks like they're chattering? Check. Resembles wooden puppets? Check. Yep, totally trustworthy.
  • Ms. Exposition: As navigator characters, they're the ones explaining the mechanics of the Library.
  • Punny Name: In every language, their names read as 'Paranoia' when put together. In particular, their names in Japanese (GishinJP  and AnkiJP ) put together forms 疑心暗鬼, "gishinanki", meaning "paranoia".
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Both have red eyes and have malicious intent for the Characters and various worlds.
  • Series Mascot: Of sorts, for the game. Despite Alice being the character on most of the game's icons, Parrah and Noya have more constant appearances within the game and in merchandise.
  • Suddenly Voiced: Played With - both puppets have unknown voice actors whose voices are filtered through a voice processor. However, during the Reverberations of Summer, The Broken Puppeteer event for Summer 2019, Noya's voice suddenly changed to that of a Bishōnen courtesy of voice actor Kento Ito. Turns out, the voice change was caused by Dorothy.
  • Theseus' Ship Paradox: Since Noya's body at the end of the Rose Maidens of the Mirror's Surface event was made by Laplace's Demon in order to separate the SINoALICE and Rozen Maiden universes, the dialogue between the two puppets in Chapter 11 of the event's Normal Mode has Parrah wondering if this Noya is even 'Noya' at all.
  • We Have Reserves: According to Parrah in the SINoALICE concert, whenever either one or both of them break, another would simply take their place.
  • Winged Humanoid: Two puppets with butterfly wings.
