Team Hao and Allies

Champions + their spirits

    Asakura Hana 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hanaasakura11_3529.jpg
Yoh and Anna's son. Already able to use an Oversoul, he's more powerful than Yoh was at his age, but dissatisfied with living in his father's shadow in the supposedly peaceful era after the Shaman Fight. His initial spirit is Amidamaru, but after Amidamaru is captured by Yosuke, Hao sets up a WWII pilot named Sakurai as a replacement.
  • Anime Hair:
  • BFS: The offensive form of his oversoul.
  • Back from the Dead: Many people have died and come back in this series. Hana is no exception, starting from when he was revived after being blown up as a baby, and in The Super-Star, where he seems to have returned from his time in the Asura Realm.
  • Blood Knight: His idea of a good time is picking a fight with a street gang. He loves to fight so much that when he died, he ended up in the Asura realm, the fighters' heaven.
  • Buxom Is Better: His attitude. Naturally, his fiancé's flat as a board.
  • Can't Catch Up: Some people say he's stronger than his father at his age. The thing is, Yoh has gronw stronger. Hana couldn't even defeat a 16-year-old Yoh, which destroyed the little pride he had left.
  • Character Development: No real word on it yet, but Chapter 6 of The Super-Star confirms that Hana has returned from the Asura Realm, and he seems a tad calmer than before. Jury's still out on how much he's changed in-between the two-series though.
  • Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Hana is far more fight loving and Hot-Blooded than Yoh was.
  • Curtains Match The Windows
  • Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You: Consider Yoh's line of work requires him and Anna to travel to war-torn countries and how taking Hana to one got him killed, yes there is a very good reason why he and Anna are absent from Hana's daily life.
  • Defence Mechanism Superpower: After a close encounter with death, Hana was given by Hao the same Oni Anna used to create; they will be released whenever Hana's life is in danger. Since this power is just a defense mechanism, using it intentionally would kill him. And it does.
  • Delinquent Hair: Messy and blond.
  • Disappeared Dad: Yoh.
  • Dismotivation: Doesn't see how studying will help him become a better shaman.
  • Fatal Flaw: His temper, arrogance, and willingness to fight proves to be his undoing on several occasions, starting with Amidamaru being captured by YVS, followed by his defeat to Ibuki and Namaha, and ending with his fight with Men, where he jumps into conflict each time, refusing to heed reason and relying on the onis despite the fact that they will kill him if used consciously. The fight with Men is where these flaws literally turn fatal.
  • Friendless Background: His knowledge of the spirit world makes it hard for him to care about the things his classmates do.
  • Gender-Blender Name: His name is a union of his parents' names but "Hana" normally is a female name.
  • Generation Xerox: He's basically a 14 year old male version of his mother Anna.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: The boy gets into unnecessary trouble because he can't control his temper. He weaponizes it when he uses his anger to forcefully summon the Oni that are only supposed to appear when his life is on the line.
  • Hidden Depths: An early chapter reveals that he considers modern-day society to be full of too much malice and hatred, hence his dislike of it.
  • Humble Pie: After being beaten by 16-year old Yoh, he's thrown into the Asura realm, and after an encounter with Sakurai, gets beaten by Yosuke's Obelisk card, upon which he gets to relive the dogfight that killed Sakurai and his squad. The latter...proves fairly introspective for him once he starts seeing other people's motivations in life.
  • Jerkass: Hana is not the nicest kid on the block. He's generally rude to a lot of people, including his family, hates modern society, and is very willing to engage in combat.
  • I Just Want to Be Badass: Wants to be a great fighter like those in the previous Shaman Fight. He's getting his wish. And happy about it too.
  • Improvised Weapon: Occasionally wields a grave marker in place of a sword.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Many of his memories appear to have been erased by YVS.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: The defensive form of his oversoul.
  • Missing Mom: Anna.
  • Not So Different: His inner monologue about his hatred of society (See Hidden Depths) being hateful themselves is quite hypocritical coming from a boy with barely any interest in the affairs of others and reacting to even other Shamans (Or perhaps especially since he can actually fight them) with violence at worst, and complete snark at best.
  • The Power of Love: ...Love? In this kid? Turns out seeing how the motivation to protect your loved ones makes you stronger causes Hana to have this as a revelation in the final run of Flowers.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Supernatural Powers!: Won all his fights with Ryuji thanks to having Amidamaru, a legendary samurai, as a ghost partner. When Ryuji easily beat him without him, Hana understands how weak he is and how much he depended on him.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Many of his sentences have at least one swear word in them.
  • Slasher Smile: When he's fighting.
  • Spin-Offspring: Of Yoh and Anna.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: To his mother, especially according to his uncle.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Via Demonic Possession.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: Takes this attitude with respect to both his father and the branch house Asakuras.
  • Trash Talk: Bursts out laughing and mocks Yohane's attempts to look cool.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: His fight with the 16 year old version of Yoh shows that while he's indeed more powerful that his dad at his age, his lack of control, inner peace and experience can be his fatal flaw.

    Asakura Yohane 
A member of the Asakura branch house. Wants to kill Hana, a member of the main house. His spirit is the swordsman Oboro Daikyoh.
  • Adorkable: Because of his relatively sheltered life, he tends to take little statements that he hears and overreact with a bit of a Luminescent Blush.
  • Blade on a Stick: His oversoul acts more like this than a sword.
  • Country Mouse: Because of his isolated upbringing, he's quite learning how to live in the city.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Says this almost word for word.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Hana. Until he turns out to be not that evil, making him more of a Foil.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Uses one of Hao's pentagram earrings as one while fighting, despite both eyes being intact.
  • Friendless Background: One of his parallels with Hana, and a result of living hidden in the woods with his family. Resulting in...
    • I Just Want to Have Friends: He admits to Hana he was excited to be the new transfer student because it would mean that people would approach him. Sadly, Alumi won everybody with just her presentation.
  • Foil: To Hana once he's revealed to not be evil in the slightest. Hana has lived in modern society all of his life and hates it, while Yohane grew up isolated from modern society and wants nothing more than to live in it. Hana is rude and boisterous, while Yohane is more polite and demure.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He was never really all that evil to begin with, but once he enrolls in Hana's school and is revealed to be on Hao's team for the F.O.M., he's on the protagonist's side.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Despite knowing of his powers, Yohane has expressed great fascination and enjoyment of being well...a regular kid once he transfers to Hana's class.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Hana diagnoses him as having Eighth-Grade Disease. That being said, this may be more of him not knowing how to properly act due to having No Social Skills. He seems more akin to the opposite instead, as seen above.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: He's a sickly dork who doesn't make much progress in defeating Hana and ultimately becomes an ally.
  • Ill Boy: He actually has quite a weak constitution.
  • The Lancer: of "Team Hao". While he has a great potential in battle and Alumi describes him as "Hana's right hand man", his rather fragile body and lack of knowledge about the F.O.M let him in this category.
  • Megane
  • Missing Mom: He's never met her.
  • Mundane Object Amazement: Fascinated with a simple shopping mall, and takoyakis. Given he was raised in an isolated temple all of his life though, it's understandable.
  • New Transfer Student: To Hana's class. Sadly, Alumni manages to take his spot through her introduction alone.
  • Parasol of Pain: His weapon of choice.
  • Replacement Goldfish: The Hanagumi really likes him for being Hao's direct descendant and try to model him in his image (that includes taking off his glasses, growing his hair longer and him Going Commando).
  • Sigil Spam: His battle costume includes an armband and eyepatch marked with Hao's pentagram.

    Oboro Daikyoh 
Yohane's spirit, a swordsman from a later period than Amidamaru.

    Alumi Niumbirch, aka Anna the Itako III 
Hana's fiancé. A student of Anna and the daughter of Silva, whose spirits she inherited.

    Ibuki Gakko 
A new Shaman who arrives as part of Team Hao.

    Namaha 
Ibuki's guardian ghost.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's nice, smart, and admires Alumi but she can "slice you in half" if you're her enemy. Or if you call her "babe".
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Ibuki. They argue a lot but Hana mistook their fight with flirting.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": When she's in her armor, she refuses to be named by her name but as "The Nama-Hage".
  • Fangirl: Of Alumi. Also Tamao and Ryu, to a lesser degree.
  • No-Sell: Her special armor and sword nullify demonic energy, meaning that she's one of the few people that can stand against Hana's Superpowered Evil Side.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Insists that Ibuki uses the name Nama-Hage in battle so their opponents don't know she's a girl.

    Tao Men 
Ren and Iron Maiden Jeanne's son.
  • Anime Hair: He manages to combine his dad's hairdo and his mom's wavy hair.
  • Blade on a Stick: His primary weapon, like his father.
  • Creepy Child: According to Yosuke, he's only 7. And in two chapters, he effortlessly whooped Team Niles's sons, Yohane, and Ibuki.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: When Team Niles' sons come to get Revenge by Proxy for Jeanne killing their fathers, Men apologizes on her behalf. Also, he wants to save his mother enough to participate in the F.O.M in Hao's team. He's also enraged when the Black Maiden confronts him, since she killed Jeanne and turned her into an oversoul. He also can't bring himself to risk hurting her as a result, and is quickly defeated.
  • Feel No Pain: Like his mother, Men can take large amounts of pain with a smile.
  • Freudian Excuse: Something must have happened to Jeanne for why Men wants to kill Hana for him being too weak. From what can be gleamed from chapter 22 she was killed and turned into an oversoul for the Black Maiden. Red Crimson later reveals that Yosuke was the culprit since the Black Maiden was actually hesitant to pull the trigger. It actually turns out that Men is interested in Hana's Oni summoning, believing that it could save his mother.
  • Knight Templar Parent: He's annoyed that Ren contracted a whole army of bodyguards just to take him to Funbari ga Oka when he can defend himself capably, but considering that Jeanne was killed by YVS' associates in China, Ren has a perfectly good reason to do so.
  • The Lancer: Each team in the Flower of Maize has five members. Right now, for Team Hao we have Hana, Ibuki and Yohane. Since most lancers start out trying to kill the main protagonist, (like father, like son), Men might end up in this role.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: He generally lacks his father's young bloodlust, and before YVS arranged for Jeanne's death as seen in Red Crimson, used to be a very go-lucky kid, compared to how Ren was much more surly. Even now, he's directly fighting for his family for reasons that are personal while Ren was generally forced to fight for his family's honor.
  • Mixed Ancestry: His father is Chinese, while his mother is French.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: And unlike his mother, he plays it straight.
  • Rule of Three: His personal policy is to give his opponents three opportunities to surrender or relinquish a fight. If continually rebuffed after those three attempts, he's not holding back.
  • Spin Off Spring: Of Ren. And, to all the readers' surprise, of Jeanne as well.
  • Spoiled Brat: He gave off this air as an infant. Still does, to a degree.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: He looks like a younger version of his father, but with the hair and eye color of his mother.
  • Super Speed: Inherited Shamash who claimed to be able to move in light speed.
  • Thou Shall Not Kill: Turns out that his parents give him a "don't kill people" rule. He forgets it when he is confronted by the Black Maiden, the girl who (planned to, at least, before Jeanne's personality scared her into doing the deed, forcing Yosuke to intervene) killed his mother and turned her into an oversoul.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Red Crimson reveals that he was much more energetic before Jeanne was killed.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Not always, and he's not as outwardly bloodthirsty as his father was, but Men's not the nicest kid.
  • The Worf Effect: When confronted with the girl who killed his mother, the Black Maiden, he's on the receiving end of a Curb-Stomp Battle by her (AKA, getting impaled into a pool of blood, and with the revelation that she's on YVS's side, it says a LOT more about how powerful these guys are on so many levels.
  • You Killed My Mother: Black Maiden killed Jeanne for the purpose of using her as her guardian ghost. Men's response to seeing her, despite having just proclaimed that his parents forbade him to kill people, is to draw his weapon and immediately take a lethal shot at her. Red Crimson reveals that the real killer was Yosuke, but the Black Maiden was still involved: She just didn't actually pull the trigger.
  • Younger Than They Look: He's drawn to look about the same age as Hana, Yohane, and Ibuki. He's actually seven-years-old.

Allies

    Tamamura Tamao 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tamao_tamamura_4869.jpg
Hana's guardian. See here for her traits from the previous series. She's grown into essentially an older Anna, while keeping Ponchi and Konchi as her spirits.
  • Break the Cutie: Side material reveals that Tamao suffered plenty doses of Break the Cutie: starting with the death of her mentor and then she was put in charge of Hana and the inn while in middle school. At high school, she broke down and became "Metal-Sword Tamao". Now older, she's more stable again.
  • Delinquent: When she was younger, she alongside Ryu joined all the thugs in the city together in a whole gang with them as bosses. Also, she broke the law for wielding a real katana. Her delinquent name was "Metal-Sword Tamao".
  • The Dreaded: Given by being Anna's substitute while she's away with Yoh. With just a smile filled with rage, Tamao can scare the crap out of her whole house; with a Death Glare, she can make Team YVS shiver.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Has Rapunzel Hair instead of her bob.
  • Girl with Psycho Weapon: In the first chapter and in Funbari no Uta, Tamao is seeing wielding a butchering knife.
  • Kimono Is Traditional: Since she's the manager of an inn and a traditional Japanese ballad's singer aspirant.
  • Parental Substitute: She's been taking care of Hana and the inn since she was in her teens.
    • Up to Eleven: She's taken on much of Anna's attitude so Hana will not miss her so much.
  • She Is All Grown Up: The narration refers to her as a beauty.
  • Statuesque Stunner
  • Took a Level in Badass: Power-leveled in badass, more like.
  • Tough Love: She uses an Oversoul to beat Hana into a pulp when he disobeys her.

    Asakura Luca 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/luka_asakura_flowers_02_page_35_by_asahi88-d4zff52_8954.jpg
Yohane's older sister and fellow member of the branch house. Her spirits are Shinden and Raiden, a pair of lion-dogs.

Team YVS

    YVS (alternatively known as Fura Yabisu
The 7th and previous Shaman King, and serves as the seemingly main antagonist in the series.
  • A God Am I: Was the 7th Shaman King, so naturally he must be incredibly powerful.
  • Big Bad: Seems to serve as the main villain currently.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: At least in regards to his dealings with Yosuke. The Knights Templar, who are the Ten Patch Officials of YVS' Shaman Fight, have no idea why YVS wastes his time with Yosuke given Yosuke's...peculiarities.
  • Hidden Depths: In the Yahabe one-shot, his golem, the titular Yahabe, seems to actually have similar opinions to Hao's hatred of the world YVS created, and there's nothing in the interim that's suggested any major changes since then, besides the golem's personality becoming closer to YVS. This, coupled with how YVS keeps on backing Yosuke, implies that there's a bit more going on with him.
  • Knight Templar: He considers the world as it is to be a paradise already and does not want Hao to destroy it.
  • Mouth of Sauron: His golem, Yahabe, acts as this.
  • Mind Wipe: One of his powers, manifested in his Erase the Memory card.
  • Our Gods Are Different: He prefers to manifest as the Eye of Providence, though the Yahabe one-shot reveals, and the main series confirms, that it's just a golem he talks through. Even in his true form, he appears quite differently from the other, more obviously-human former Kings. Though, it might just be his outfit.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Was responsible for creating the capitalist society that is present in the world, and also manifests his powers in the forms of cards for Yosuke to use, with them ranging from cheap to incredibly expensive. It can be assumed he shares a similar attitude to his associate.
  • Telepathy: One of his powers manifested in his Read the Mind 10 card.

    Yosuke Kamogawa 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yosukeee_5066.jpg
Leader of Team YVS, having the previous Shaman Fight winner, YVS, as his spirit partner.
  • A God Am I: Aside from having an ex-god as his spirit partner, he believes that money controls everything, from your life to others'. He's also planning to surpass the current god, Hao.
  • Cast from Money: His cards enable him to use various abilities, ranging from X-Ray scanning to summoning a giant obelisk, but require him to insert money or I.O.U.s into Yahabe, the pyramid that draws power from YVS.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Yosuke is a CEO that believes firmly that money makes the world go around. So while he has money, he has power, and if he has power, he can have more money.
  • The Dragon: Number one associate and aide to YVS, and Team Leader of Team YVS. He's also been the one backing a good portion of their schemes as shown in Red Crimson.
  • Death Dealer: He manifests YVS' power via cards. Even so, every card, depending on the power (stopping time, resurrection, etc.) is worth quite a lot of money.
  • Ditto Fighter: one of YVS' cards. He uses it to copy Yoh's Byakko O.S..
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: For YVS' side, no-one really likes Yosuke. His hired help in Red Crimson is terrified of him, and the Knights Templar find his methods to be wasteful.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Used to be penniless, now he's an evil billionaire and The Dragon to YVS.
  • Hero Killer: Red Crimson reveals that he was the one to actually kill Jeanne and just planted the memory into the Black Maiden's mind.
  • Interrupted Suicide: Yosuke met YVS when he was about to commit suicide.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: He's a filthy rich CEO and is quite dapper.
  • Perpetual Smiler: And it makes you shiver.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: He, alongside YVS, destroyed The Patch village.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: You can clearly see that Yosuke consideres everything to be a mere game, now that he has YVS' power, as he behaves like a mean and spoiled child showing up his brand new toys, while beating Hana. Later, it's revealed that he's actually 13 years old, which justifies more his attitude.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: A given since YVS is the god that created the capitalism system. It's then revealed that he's not a born shaman, nor he even has his spiritual potential awaken, but thanks to YVS' power only needing money, he just bought the power to see spirits.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Supernatural Powers!: It's hinted that Yosuke was poor before and meeting YVS was what made him so damn rich.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Always in a white suit.
  • The Reveal: Is revealed in chapter 24 to be responsible for Yoh, Hana, And Anna's deaths alongside YVS, and later in Red Crimson to be the true culprit in Jeanne's death.
  • Time Master: The Time Stop cards give him the ability to do so. He seems to prefer the 30 second version.
  • Touched by Vorlons: He's actually not a natural shaman. He just cut a deal with YVS for the powers he wields.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: The Yahabe one-shot reveals that he used to be an isolated nerd, but was certainly not a bad person.
  • Younger Than He Looks: Would you believe that Yosuke is actually 13 years old by just looking at him? This is because of all of the Time Stop cards he's been using, causing him to age physically faster than others.

    Black Maiden 
A member of Team YVS in the F.O.M., a mysterious girl who now owns Jeanne as her oversoul.
  • Dark Action Girl: She's a girl fighting for YVS.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Crushes Men into a pool of blood.
  • Fake Memories: Claims to have killed Jeanne to make her into an oversoul. This is false. Red Crimson reveals that she wasn't able to pull the trigger, and Yosuke had to do the deed before altering her memories.
  • Gonk: She doesn't look that bad, but her expressions and face do not do her looks any justice. Ryu for instance, is perplexed why she would be considered a maiden.
  • Hidden Depths: Not so much in the first run of Flowers, but Red Crimson has her hesitate to shoot Jeanne and be horrified at her target try to use Shamash to commit suicide in order to teach her the lesson of actually taking a life, indicating there's a few fetters in her..
  • Jerkass: Not unlike Hana, she's very rude.
  • Youthful Freckles: Like Gakko, but these just make her look off.
