Protagonists

     Yuki Minakami 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yuki_5.jpg

"All a woman needs in life are cigarettes, a roof, and a frilly dress, right?"

Yuki is the protagonist of the Down the Rabbit-Hole I & II chapters. She is a habitual truant with a taste for cigarettes who considers herself antisocial, but in fact has an aptitude for getting along with other girls (and for intimidating boys as well). Besides that, Yuki is a fan of classical literature and she spends much of her time reading on the school's rooftop. As a result of her grandfather's stewardship of a kobudo dojo, she became skilled in ancient form of martial arts.

She's actually one of Takuji Mamiya's multiple personalities, born on July 12th. She's not aware of this and the other personalities of the old Yuki and Tomosane. Her perception is also altered: She sees Hasaki Mamiya and her doll as the Wakatsuki twins.

For clarity's sake, tropes belonging to the new Yuki will be placed here, and tropes belonging to the old Yuki will be placed in her entry in Jabberwocky characters.


  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl
  • Ambiguous Situation: In the Wonderful Everyday and Hill of Sunflowers ending, she completely disappears from the plot, as Tomosane take back his body, and the old Yuki came back as a ghost. However, the End Sky II ending shows her alive in the roof, talking with Ayana just after Takuji's suicide. She even lampshades it by saying it is unknown which Yuki is talking to her: The old one, the protagonist from Down the Rabbit Hole or a completely new personality.
  • Badass Bookworm: Despite not going to class very often, Yuki is well-read and intelligent, as well as physically strong and capable in a fight.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Her friends lament that she could make good grades if only she didn't skip school so much.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Forgets names often, brings up bizarre topics like a Robo-Gandhi in conversations and her mind jumps to bizarre conclusions like mistaking a Kagami's bento for a bomb. Justified since her forgetfulness and gaps in memories are due to Takuji and the old Yuki's influences messing up her head.
  • Does Not Like Men: And sometimes vocal about it.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Yuki is pretty popular with female students and has a couple of Yuri sex scenes to her name.
  • The Gadfly: She loves to tease Kagami about her tsundere tendencies.
  • Hair Decorations: Yuki wears some unusual ones with feathers on the end in her ponytail.
  • Hot-Blooded: Has her moments, especially when given the opportunity to fight.
  • If It's You, It's Okay: How she seems to eventually feel about Zakuro and the Wakatsuki sisters in Down the Rabbit-Hole I.
  • Multi-Gendered Split Personalities: It is foreshadowed in Looking-Glass Insects and revealed in Jabberwocky I that she is a personality of Takuji Mamiya.
    • However, another personality already exists as Yuki and is slowly erased for the protagonist of Down the Rabbit-Hole, since July 12th. See Split-Personality Takeover below.
  • Oblivious to Love: She's dense like a typical harem protagonist. Any of Kagami, Zakuro and Tsukasa's romantic advances in Down The Rabbit-Hole I go completely over her head. She can break out of this if she chooses to date either Kagami or Tsukasa and live in a Wonderful Everyday.
  • Otaku: Due to Takuji's influences, she makes tons of anime references and even jokingly refers to herself as a Tsundere. Ironically, Ayana claims that tsunderes are the type of girls that Takuji secretly likes.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: How she wears her school uniform.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: In her final confrontation against Takuji, she goes on to explain his entire plan to him, but half of her explanations falls into this.
  • Sexier Alter Ego: Subverted for Takuji. She was based on a real person.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Has a taste for a specific, obscure brand of cigarettes "Never Knows Best" and often hangs out on the roof to smoke them.
  • Split-Personality Takeover: Played with. This Yuki isn't malevolent per se, but she isn't aware of her split personality issue, and her overwriting of the old Yuki and Tomosane. The takeover is shared with Takuji Mamiya.
  • Split-Personality Merge: This happens off-screen for the alternate ending for Looking-Glass Insects. This Yuki becomes the new personality to reside in the body after Yuki acquires the better traits from all three previous personalities and Tomosane erases Takuji along with himself. As the perfect personality that Takuji wanted, his grades improve and he becomes far more popular with sociable with his classmates. From Zakuro's perspective, it appeared that Takuji had forgotten (or was feigning ignorance) about knowing Zakuro and Kimika along with wiping out their bullies as Tomosane.
  • Transparent Closet: In Down The Rabbit-Hole I she tries to downplay her attraction to the Wakatsuki sisters and Zakuro, and protests along the way. None of the other girls are fooled.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Wears thigh-highs with her street clothes, the long skirt partially obscures the tops of them. They can be seen in some of her CGs.

     Takuji Mamiya 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/takuji.jpg
"I am vulgarity itself..."

Yuki's classmate, Takuji, is the protagonist of It's My Own Invention chapter. He is a reclusive boy from an otaku subculture who's always stammering while speaking with others. Takuji rarely attends class as he spends most of his time secluded in his secret hideout that he had constructed under the school’s old drained swimming pool.


  • The Ace: In the backstory, he was good at everything and was very intelligent before a certain incident in Jabberwocky II. During the events of It's My Own Invention, he got back his skills.
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: Played for Drama. Upon being forced to wear Zakuro's clothes, some of his bullies find him attractive enough to rape him.
  • Big Bad: In Down the Rabbit-Hole II and Jabberwocky.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Played with. Takuji's subconscious protection for Hasaki and regret the past events in Sawaimura had pushed him to use every technique in the book to erase, forget or ignore Hasaki's existence and allows his other personalities (Yuki and Tomosane) to take up the familial duties that he feels that he can't do or isn't worthy for. In That Which Dreamed It, Takuji shows sudden outrage and impatience when his followers are confused on why he orders them to rape Hasaki's rabbit doll and comes to the conclusion that they aren't allowed to rape Hasaki.
  • A Child Shall Lead Them: Proclaims himself to be a holy 'Savior' and prophesied the end of the world. His mother raised him this way.
  • Birds of a Feather: Subverted. He believed Zakuro to be interested in him due to both of them being victims of bullying, but it quickly crumbles once she realized his unhealthy behavior and general creepiness. Depending on the player's choices, he can delude himself into thinking that Zakuro is a huge sex maniac and warp his views, believing she's in love with him.
  • Character Development: Probably one of the most dramatic examples in the story. After Zakuro's death his personality changes radically and he goes from a timid student with low self-esteem to an outright villain: A powerful, charismatic cult leader with dozens of followers who uses his influence to cross several lines.
  • The Chessmaster: The one behind Zakuro's "cursed mails sent by her ghost", creating paranoia in his school thread website. He then gained several followers, believing him to be the savior, and capable of dispelling the curse.
  • Dissonant Serenity: Embodies this whenever he reawakens as the savior. In Down The Rabbit Hole II, Yuki is very disturbed to confront Takuji after he regains his previous personality.
    Yuki: Mamiya Takuji was staring at my face. He wouldn't look away at all. They say a mental patient never looks away from the doctor. Because they can't understand how uncomfortable it is for another person to be stared at.
  • Erotic Dream: Takuji prone to having sexual fantasies and spacing out during them. Many of the sex scenes in his chapter turn out to be this.
  • Exact Words: Pulls this on Asami after he orders to rape her father and throw away her humanity to join his cult. He told her to have sex with her father, but never told her to go Streaking in the streets and masturbate in public. Takuji is so disgusted by this that he orders the cult members to turn her into their communal toilet as punishment.
  • Fauxlosophic Narration: Alternates between this and actual quoting of philosophers to support his speeches about the End Sky and the end of the world.
  • Hidden Depths: At first glance, he is very introverted and doesn't like anything other than japanese media. Once he "awakens" in "It's My Own Invention", he shows several social skills, a great intelligence and appears to be very strong in barehanded fighting - though this takes the form of a Battle in the Center of the Mind.
  • Go Out with a Smile: As he jumps off the roof of the school. According to him.
  • I Reject Your Reality: At first limited to sexual delusions, it became more and more present since the death of Zakuro, to the point he actually cannot hear words that doesn't respond to his vision of reality.
  • Irrational Hatred: He has a strong aversion to Yuki Minakami and the Wakatsuki sisters for seemingly no reason. They represent people that don't' fit into his worldview.
    • In Jabberwocky I it is revealed that this is because Yuki Minakami is one of his split personalites and the Wakatsuki sisters are actually his sister and her stuffed rabbit. His refusal to acknowledge them help explain some of his discomfort around them.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Very subtle, but he has shown moments of this. Eariler on in the Invention chapters, he was willing to befriend and connect with Zakuro (in his own awkward way) after learning that she was getting bullied to make her feel better. Then he shows more of his kinder sides to Kimika in the later half of Invention and the alternate route especially. Finally, Jabberwocky I reveals through Yuki and Tomosane that Takuji had subconsciously changed and forgotten his memories of Hasaki out of protection and regret.
    Tomosane: Her name. That's it, isn't it? You tried to protect Hasaki by forgetting about her and pretending she was dead. For that at least, I have to commend you. No matter how crazy you got, you always put Hasaki's happiness first.
  • Lean and Mean: Despite being noticeably skinny and having a lot of experience being on the receiving end of bullying, Takuji is actually incredibly strong. And once he gains followers who believe in him he shows himself to be incredibly cruel.
  • Loners Are Freaks: Keeps to himself and is considered creepy and weird by his classmates.
  • Otaku: Frequently reads manga, light novels, and watches anime.
  • Protagonist Journey to Villain: Downplayed in It's My Own Invention, as he wasn't very heroic to begin with.
  • Rape by Proxy: Doesn't directly engage in sexual assault, but encourages his followers to 'use' their teacher as a toilet, have sex with Megu and Satoko to their hearts' content, and rape and torture Kagami Wakatsuki.
  • Rape as Drama: Was forced to dress with Zakuro's clothes and doing fellatio to his bullies.
  • Seen-It-All Suicide: The true meaning of the End Sky to him. For his followers, it's more of a Face Death with Dignity before the supposedly end of the world.
  • Selective Obliviousness: Despite proclaiming to be "the Savior", he is not able to hear his sister's name and cannot see her, because she represents his weakness.
  • Self-Deprecation: The sole reason why Tomosane was created to kill him in the first place and why Yuki is the the face of his social interactions. This changes completely whenever he regains his previous confidence of the savior and decides that he doesn't need his previous two personalities anymore.
  • Split Personality: In Jabberwocky I, it is revealed that Yuki Minakami and Tomosane Yuuki are different personalities inside his body, and they seem to be aware of this but Takuji himself isn't.
  • Split-Personality Takeover: The suicide of Zakuro triggered his ancient memories of his mother, causing him to get back all his skills to become the Savior, and by doing so overwriting his other personalities. The takeover is shared with the second Yuki.
  • Start of Darkness: It's My Own Invention is one for him.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: In the Kimika ending, Takuji regains some of his humanity through his relationship with Kimika. In the end, he throws everything away to hold her in their final moments together.
  • Unreliable Expositor: As a cult leader, almost everything he says to his followers is this.
  • Unreliable Narrator: The entire route is hardly realistic since his severe bullying made him seeing things like characters from anime, erotic dreams, dead characters, anxiety ghosts, and several furnitures as Zakuro. His narration is largely seen Through the Eyes of Madness, to the point he even sees God himself!
  • Villain Protagonist: Eventually go down as one in It's My Own Invention.

     Zakuro Takashima 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zakuro.jpg
"The sky is full of anxious words..."

Yuki's schoolmate from a neighbouring class, Zakuro, is the protagonist of the Looking-Glass Insects chapter. She has a tendency to get lost in her thoughts and frequently spaces out. Due to her timid and soft-spoken nature, she is often a target of tasteless pranks and bullying. She considers her classmate Kimika to be her only friend, though their relationship appears to be occasionally ambiguous.


  • Ambiguous Situation: The first of the cursed mails is sended by her in Down the Rabbit-Hole I, however the entire route is a Near-death experience. The mail managed to somehow send itself into the other routes even though by the time she was already dead.
  • Accidental Murder: She believed that Usami, Ayumi, and herself would be reborn from their near-death experience with the 'Spiral Matai' and had no malicious or suicidal intent when she pulled them both off the roof along with herself.
  • Break the Cutie: Her. Entire. Story. See Broken Bird below.
  • Broken Bird: Appears as one in Down the Rabbit-Hole. The full extent of her backstory is revealed in Looking-Glass Insects, and it goes downhill from there. First victim of a bullying and pranks, it escalates into blackmailing, drugging and video recordings of her body against her will, culminating with her abduction and rape.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Says some odd things and seems somewhat detached.
  • Cosmic Plaything: Gets bullied each day, and it gets worse with time.
    • In a strange twist, this is taken more literally: After learning of her status as an ancient Magical Girl (according to Usami and Ayumi), she also learns that the "bad humans" (i.e. her bullies) are infected with cosmic parasites, making them act the way they are.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: Her mindset starts off like this where she's bored of her normal life and constantly looking for a new exciting thing to fill it... and ends up with more than she bargained for. Even Ayana calls her out before she commits suicide by saying that she shouldn't delude herself into believing that she was an angelic warrior in a past life to give it more purpose.
  • Driven to Suicide: Heavily implied because of her bullying, and it's actually Played with: She jumped off the building with her new friends, attempting to go through a Near-death experience to be reborn as an angel. It works in Down The Rabbit-Hole I.
  • For Want of a Nail: The alternative route in Looking-Glass Insects is unlocked should she had chosen to support Kimika and fight back their bullies.
  • Hime Cut
  • My Death Is Just the Beginning: Many of the students interpret her suicide as a vengeful act, intended to curse those who ignored and bullied her in life. This isn't really the case, but the idea leads to a lot of strange events.
  • Mysterious Waif: Lampshaded by the new Yuki the second she saw her. Before her bullying, she was a rather normal girl but became this after her encounter with Usami and Yuki, believing herself to be a Magical Girl who will save the world, and trying to warn other people on the Internet, albeit with confusing words.
    • Her dialogue in Down the Rabbit-Hole I makes more sense after reading Looking-Glass Insects.
  • Near-Death Experience: In Down The Rabbit-Hole I, Yuki trying to save her from her death causes them to undergo a near-death experience, in a ideal world. In the other routes, it's the true reason for her death.
  • Not So Different: In the canonical route of Looking-Glass Insects, her mind eventually breaks from the bullying: She begins to see delusions and believes herself to be the reincarnation of an angel, not unlike Takuji when the two first met.
  • Not So Similar: During Looking-Glass Insects, it's eventually revealed that she wasn't delusional from the start, and despite her bullying tries not to fall into escapism. Upon meeting Takuji, she expressed interest in him up until she realized his true nature, and preferred to flee from him.
  • Sanity Slippage: Big time. After getting raped, she starts to see bizarre delusions like God naked on a cross who criticizes her inability to stay pure for Takuji. Even the students claim that she looked straight out of a horror movie and written bizarre messages on her desk.
  • Past-Life Memories: She meets two girls online who had similar experiences to her own, and they claim she is a reincarnated angel warrior who has lost her memories. She gets a few of these back before her death.
  • Plot-Triggering Death: A large part of the plot revolves about her suicide, inciting Takuji to take action and the other protagonists fighting him.
  • Posthumous Character: She dies at the beginning of the story, but her influence can be felt especially in Down the Rabbit Hole and It's My Own Invention.
  • Rape as Drama: Near the end of Looking-Glass Insects, she is forcefully drugged and raped by Shiroyama and his friends.

     Tomosane Yuuki 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yuuki_1.jpg
"Do other people have such a clear raison d'être? No, they suffer because they don't. But I have been blessed. Because I was born with a reason to exist, no matter what that reason is, it is a blessing."

Tomosane is the protagonist of the Jabberwocky I & II chapters. He is considered to be the strongest fist-fighter in the school and he rules over its most unsavory elements by fear. Tomosane is also a source of dread for Takuji, whom he brutalizes and extorts money from frequently.

He is actually a Split Personality of Takuji's who was created to be a 'destroyer'. He is good at fighting and is known to take on large groups of thugs.


  • Arch-Enemy: To Takuji, as he was (re)created to destroy him.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Even though he is reluctant to admit it, when the possibility that Hasaki is in danger comes up, he immediately worries for her safety and makes it his first priority to find her.
  • Bullying a Dragon: The first time he 'awakens', Takuji's bullies are in for a surprise when Tomosane takes revenge.
  • Cavalry Betrayal: Shows up when Takuji's bullies are raping him, only for the Tomosane to kick him down when he's done with them. Subverted since he's one of his personalities: He's actually hitting himself after taking down his bullies.
  • Heroes Fight Barehanded: Even though he is often seen with a knife, he usually fights with his fists and rarely uses a weapon, even during dangerous street fights.
  • Hidden Depths: Before his POV chapter he seems to be little more than a violent thug. In Jabberwocky I he's actually quite introspective and compassionate, and aware that he's nothing more than one of Takuji's Split Personalities. He also likes to play video games.
  • Identity Amnesia: A special case where he did it to himself. See his entry on the Jabberwocky characters below.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's quiet, aloof, and bullies Mamiya Takuji mercilessly, as well as rules over the other bullies in the school with an iron fist. But deep down, he's afraid of Takuji erasing him and only projects this image because it's what Takuji secretly wants him to be like. He's also very warm to his loved ones, like the old Yuki, his sister and his martial arts master.
  • Kung-Fu Clairvoyance: Of a sort. He can read Takuji's movements so easily because they share the same body. Even beyond that though, Tomosane seems to be able to move before anyone notices.
  • Lean and Mean: Like Takuji he's tall and skinny, but very capable of defeating an entire crowd of bullies bare-handed.
  • One-Man Army: Effectively beat down an entire gang of bullies summoned by Megu and her boyfriend Shiroyama to protect Zakuro and Kimika in the alternative route of Looking-glass Insects.
  • Self-Deprecation: Sharing a brain with Takuji means that he had adopted a lot of his self-hatred too.
  • Straw Nihilist: Believes that nothing in life matters since his only role in life is to destroy things. Grows out of this trope whenever he decides to protect Hasaki as her hero and take control of the body to do so.
  • Split Personality: He is an alternate personality of Takuji, created to destroy him as well as fight his bullies.
  • Split-Personality Takeover: At the beginning of Jabberwocky he is worried he will be erased soon as one of Takuji's alters.
    • At the end of Jabberwocky II he becomes the dominent personality in the body, taking back his identity as 'Tomosane Mamiya'.
  • Split-Personality Merge: His original end goal is to erase Takuji to make sure that the new Yuki is the surviving personality remaining. After gaining the determination to change his fate from the desire to protect Hasaki, he decides to fight Takuji for domanince of the body.
  • Unreliable Narrator: Discussed with the old Yuki. They are both aware of this, since the Split-Personality Takeover made them seeing things in an altered way, like Takuji and the new Yuki do.
  • Tsundere: Type 1.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Him and Kiruma form this relationship near the end of Jabberwocky and in the Wonderful Everyday ending. Despite Tomosane giving him a hard time for being a nosy reporter, he is greatful for Kiruma taking care of Hasaki.
  • Walking Spoiler: Since he doesn't become a major character until late in the story, a lot of the events involving him spoil earlier chapters.

     Hasaki Mamiya 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hasaki.jpg
"How convenient. ...In other words you treat me like your sister when it's convenient, and like a stranger when it's not."

Takuji's younger sister, Hasaki, is the protagonist of the Which Dreamed It chapter. She's a shy and timorous girl, who carries a stuffed rabbit doll around with her everywhere she goes. Hasaki is very attached to her older brother and often visits him at his school, though she doesn't attend the said school herself. She works at the same bar as Tomosane by helping out and cooking in the kitchen.


  • Ascended Extra: Only appears in a small handful of scenes until Jabberwocky where she finally becomes a major character. She graduates to becoming a POV character in Which Dreamed It, providing one of the first clear views of what is going on and following up on foreshadowing in Jabberwocky
  • Big Brother Attraction: She is in love with her older brother Tomosane.
  • Bunnies for Cuteness: Always carries around a large stuffed rabbit with her. When she was younger she even had a swimsuit with a bunny on it.
  • Forced to Watch: When she follows Takuji down into his 'ark' he takes her beloved stuffed rabbit and makes his followers 'rape' the toy while she is forced to look on. It's up to the viewer to decide if this is Narm or unsettling.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Always carries around a large stuffed rabbit wherever she goes. Her big brother painstakingly made it by hand when he couldn't afford a large stuffed rabbit in a store window, and to her it symbolises a happier time in her life.
    • Turns out the store the original rabbit was being sold at was called Wakatsuki...
  • Little Sister Heroine
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: She's surprisingly capable of fighting and defending herself, despite her size. Just like her older brother.
  • Token Mini-Moe: The youngest and smallest heroine of the game by a long shot.
  • Unreliable Narrator: Inverted. She's the only protagonist who knows everything about her brother's issues and whose perception is not biased.

Main Characters:

     Ayana Otonashi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ayana.jpg
Ayana is a mysterious girl who gets encountered by all five protagonists; for the first time typically on the school's rooftop. She speaks enigmatically, in riddles, and frequently makes literary references and strange jokes that others find more unsettling than amusing. Her conversations are often about "The End Sky" (終ノ空 - Tsui no Sora), a concept that only she herself seems to truly understand.
  • Ambiguously Evil: She sometimes sports a Psychotic Smirk while teasing the other characters and also mocking them for their efforts. She's actually more benevolent than expected: Trying to prevent Takuro's suicide, guiding the new Yuki to Takuji's hideout, is genuinely glad if Zakuro make the right choice, and she's helping the other protagonists (barring Takuji) in her own and weird way.
  • Ambiguously Human: Appears only to the protagonists, sometimes in improbable places, even in Down the Rabbit-Hole 1 which is an NDE shared by Zakuro and the new Yuki. Further discussed in End Sky II, when she is talking to Miu.
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: Knows a lot more about what's going on than she lets on.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: In-Universe to the whole plot of Wonderful Everyday.
  • Hermaphrodite: In Takuji's sexual fantasy, she has both sets of genitals. She explicitly denies this while teasing him about it afterwards.
  • The Philosopher: She likes to use literary and philosophical references in her dialogue.
  • Talking Down the Suicidal: A very rare instance where she interferes with the plot, trying to prevent Zakuro from executing the Spiral Matai suicide. It doesn't work, unfortunately.
  • Uncanny Valley Girl: Speaks very cryptically to all the characters and has a general air of mystery around her.
  • The Watcher: Her main role in the story, mainly teasing the other protagonists.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Wears white thigh-highs that are easily seen in some CGs.

     Kimika Tachibana 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kimika.jpg
Kimika is Zakuro's classmate and her closest friend, though she considers that she betrayed their friendship and because of that she often treats her coldly in an attempt to alienate her. Kimika's an explosive girl who dabbles in chemical science and it's no surprise she became a 39th president of the Kita High Science Club. She also joined the Track and Field Club in order to improve her poor reflexes.
  • Becoming the Mask: Originally wanted to kill Takuji for believing he was disrespecting Zakuro's suicide for his own gain. Whenever she grew to understand him better and became saved by his words and actions, she fell in love with him instead.
  • Bi the Way: Was in love with Zakuro and wanted to protect her. During It's My Own Invention she becomes Takuji's acolyte and professes her love for her 'savior'.
  • Chekhov's Skill: In her side route during Looking-Glass Insects she uses her chemistry knowledge (She is the president of the science club) to fight back against her bullies.
  • Crazy-Prepared: To the point where she claims to even keep a knife hidden under her bed in case of emergencies!
  • Genki Girl: The persona that she keeps up throughout the Invention chapter. She also claimed to be high on the drugs that the cult was using to make herself more energetic and peppy. In Looking-Glass Insects, she is far more reserved and somber due to all the bullying that she puts up with for Zakuro. When the bullying stops, she becomes more energetic... especially when she has to deal with fighting off Tomosane for Zakuro's affections when the former couldn't care less.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: In Looking-Glass Insects, she acts rather cold and distant to Zakuro to protect her and takes the bullying in her place. The alternate route also reveals that her snarkiness is a front to hide her socially awkward nature. This continues on even after the bullying stops against her and Zakuro. Thankfully, this only adds to her popularity combined with her cute looks.
  • Lady of War: How she treats her school life by always coming prepared with weapons to fight back and understands certain tricks that bullies do to antagonize them. Even at home, she claims to have plenty of weapons in preparation for being attacked.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: She was already losing after Zakuro's suicide, but it's Takuji who saves her and this arguably makes her crazier in finding a fellowed tortured soul who understood Zakuro's pain. She's also pretty aggressive towards Tomosane in the alternate route for Looking-Glass Insects for interacting with Zakuro. Her antics to in that route are far less life-threatening and more comedic.
  • Little Miss Badass: Breaks out a whip to hold back Shiroyama and his gang in the alternate route. Despite being an amateur compared to the more experienced fighters in the series, she still proves her grit by being able to fight off her bullies with chemicals, knowledge and weapons.
  • Morality Pet: Played with. While she is just as crazy as Takuji in the Invention chapter and enables his horrible behavior, she also becomes his most loyal follower and they end up falling in love. She becomes his anchor to reality in the alternative route while he's even more delusional in the main route.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Acts like an airheaded obedient Genki Girl throughout the Invention chapter when she's actually far more cunning and manipulative than she appears.
  • Only Sane Man: In Its My Own Invention the alternative route of the chapter reveals that she was working behind the scenes to ensure Takuji's "miracles" continued to occur whenever he blacked out. Despite knowing the truth, she remained by his side.
  • Otaku: Tells Takuji that she is one and even makes plenty of anime references to boot. She even mentions the original artist of Magical Girl Riruru-chan on the mark which subtly impresses Takuji.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: In the branch story of Looking-Glass Insects she has this with Zakuro. They eventually end up in a relationship during the alternative ending.
  • Stepford Smiler: While she comes off as eager and full of energy for Takuji, she actually holds a lot of resent towards her bullies and herself for being unable to protect Zakuro. The end of the alternate route for Invention is where she drops the mask and reveals everything to Takuji before jumping off the roof.
  • Sanity Slippage: It's implied that she loses it after Zakuro dies and the guilt takes a toll on her. Takuji picks up on her unusual lack of self-preservation and pragmatic actions throughout Invention. Even her character sprites make some very uncanny expressions with dead eyes and slasher smiles in Invention when they're completely absent in Looking-Glass Insects.
  • Why Can't I Hate You?: Reveals in her ending of It's My Own Invention that she felt this way about Zakuro when the other defended her from her bullies. In her eyes, Zakuro's enduring kindness to her even as Kimika "betrayed" her was worse than any insult she could have endured.
    • This also doubles for Takuji as she claimed to have hated him at first when she believed that she was using Zakuro's suicide for his own gain. She quickly empathize with the fact that he understood Zakuro's suffering, helped him with his "miracles" whenever he fell short and eventually fell in love with him.
  • Yandere: Flat out claims herself to be one to Takuji. Judging from her behavior where she wanted to kill as many people as she could for Zakuro's sake, she fits this trope easily as a more cold and calculating version.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Wearings a grade A with her school uniform.

     Kagami Wakatsuki 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kagami_9.jpg
Kagami is Yuki's childhood friend that acts as a stereotypical tsundere. She frequently argues with Takuji in school as well and is fiercely protective of her younger twin sister Tsukasa.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: In Down the Rabbit-Hole I with Yuki.
  • Captain Ersatz: Called out in-universe. There is a reason for this: Kagami and Tsukasa are how Yuki and Takuji see Hasaki because Takuji doesn't want to acknowledge his sister's existence. Tomosane says they remind him of a pair of "twins" from "an anime" referencing this.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: She is raped, cut, and tortured by Takuji's cult in a very long H-scene. Downplayed since it's a toy, making this a case of Nightmare Retardant.
  • Expy: of Kagami Hiiragi from Lucky Star.
  • Living Toys: In Jabberwocky I it is revealed that she's actually Hasaki's rabbit doll that she carries everywhere, and despite being the "older" sister has the personality Hasaki had in the past.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Tsukasa's Blue Oni.
  • Transparent Closet: Even her own sister teases her about this in Down The Rabbit-Hole I.
  • Tsundere

  • Expy: Of Tsukasa Hiiragi from Lucky Star.
  • Imaginary Friend: In Jabberwocky I Tomosane tells the reader that Tsukasa is actually Hasaki, but Mamiya Takuji refuses to see her as his sister and created this "delusion" to go over her. Despite being the "younger" sister she actually has the personality of present-day Hasaki.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni to Kagami's Red Oni.
  • Tareme Eyes: Just like the character she's based off of.
  • The Cutie: Very soft-spoken and gentle in sharp contrast to both her sister and her childhood friend Yuki.

  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: In Looking-glass Insects, Megu actually shows genuine worry over Shiroyama getting beaten by Tomosane and says that she doesn't want him getting hurt. It's a rather surprising moment to see her expressing concern for someone else's well being when she spends the entire route terrorizing Zakuro and Kimika.
  • Alpha Bitch: Alongside Satoko. Of the two of them she seems to come up with more of the plans, and holds Satoko back when they're outmatched.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: The sole reason why she started bullying Kimika and Zakuro was that Shiroyama (her boyfriend) called them cute. Things only went downhill from there...

  • Parental Incest: Has sex with her own father under Takuji's orders.
  • Sanity Slippage: The fear of being cursed by Zakuro and Takuji's brainwashing makes her lose it. After raping her father, she runs around town naked and masturbates in public to embrace her loss of humanity. Unfortunately, Takuji does not take latter news well and gives her a harsh punishment.

  • Asshole Victim: He dies in July 11, falling from the school's roof while doing drugs. Not that anyone cared for him.

Other Minor Characters

     Miu Iwata 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/miu.jpg

A girl in Yuki's class and a member of the science club with Kimika. She's also friends with Ayana.


  • Minor Major Character: Rarely shows up during the story, yet for some reason calls for Ayana to come with her during End Sky II.
    • Depending on how you take the ending she and Ayana may be the only two characters who are confirmed to be 'real' or at least part of an 'outer world' beyond the main story.
    • She may have also been part of Takuji's inspiration for the Magical Girl Riruru.
  • Nominal Importance: One of the least impactful characters in the whole story arguably. Despite her few appearances and minor impact she has a character portrait, name, and voice over. Yet she creates a lot of narrative issues by doing this such as interacting with Kagami and Tsukasa, and shows up during the final end of the game End Sky II. The reasons for this, and how important it is to the overall story, are up for debate and the viewer's interpertation.

     Magical Girl Riruru

  • Past-Life Memories: She explains to Zakuro that she and Ayumi are her angelic allies from a past life.

A reporter investigating the events surrounding Kita High's student body.
  • Butt-Monkey: Despite being one of the few adult characters in the story he's hopelessly incompetent, though well-meaning, unlike some other adult characters.

Characters appearing in Jabberwocky (to be completed)

     Tomosane Mamiya 
The son of Kotomi and Hiroo Mamiya, first appearing in Jabberwocky II. He was born in the village of Sawaimura and spent his childhood away from the city, while training with his friend Yuki Minakami. He became estranged with his mother due to her tolerating his half-brother Takuji bullying his younger sibling Hasaki, whom he is friends with.

During a fateful day, he stumbled upon Takuji and his mother in a fit of madness due to being involved with a cult, and eventually witnesses his half-brother throwing Hasaki off a cliff, causing his friend Yuki to perform a Heroic Sacrifice to save her at the cost of her life. He then kills Takuji out of rage (putting his mother in a half-catatonic state in the process), something that would leave him with lingering feelings of guilt, and fatally causes him to suppress his personality and replacing it with Takuji as of today.

He is the true identity and body of Tomosane Yuuki, better known as a personality of Takuji Mamiya, albeit partially reincarnated, and was tasked to destroy him along with the old Yuki in order to create a perfect personality for the new Yuki Minakami from Down the Rabbit Hole.

  • Ambiguous Situation: After her final death at the end of Jabberwocky II, she suddenly reappears at the Sawaimura village in the Hill of Sunflowers ending, although as a ghost this time. Only Tomosane and Hasaki can see her, prompting them to question if their brain is working normally.
