This is a list of characters appearing in Tengoku No Owari and the tropes applying to them.
Yuki Tatsumaki (Twinwolf)
- Broken Bird: Just as broken, if not more, as Noriko is.
- Chainsaw Good: Her favoured weapon.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Seems to believe that life operates like an anime. Again, see Stepford Smiler as to why this isn't entirely true.
- Combat Medic: She's a highly effective healer with hard hitting attacks.
- Genki Girl: Extremely hyperactive and almost bounces around the walls. This is a facade.
- Stepford Smiler: Her Chuunibyou behaviour is a form of escapism that helps her ignore her depressing home life.
- Unskilled, but Strong: She lacks technique and situational awareness but makes up for it with crushing offensive power and the ability to heal herself.
Noriko Fuuri (King Murdoc)
- Blade on a Stick: Her preferred weapon.
- Broken Bird: The combination of her childhood, bullying and the "hallucinations" she suffered have broken her down into a cynical person, the combined rage of which she takes out on Minato.
- The Cassandra: Already was capable of seeing Aramitama from a young age, but it was dismissed as mental illness. This is one of the reasons why she became a Broken Bird and one of the things she calls out Minato on for not confirming her suspicions.
- Calling Your Attacks: Typically calls out her Hypers before she uses them.
- Green-Eyed Monster: A platonic version of this towards Minato and Faith, due to Minato tending to Faith's problems before hers. Justified by the fact that she knew Minato prior and is therefore ticked off that Minato is watching out for a girl he barely knows instead of someone he's known for years.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Two bosses and counting. Her Vasavi Shakti special is often applied as well. Often ends with enemies Pinned to the Wall (and/or floor.)
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Minato and Yuki's Red.
- Theme Naming: All of her Hypers are named after astras and have a function loosely correlating with their namesakes.
- You Never Did That for Me: Her thoughts toward Minato, which are funneled into a What the Hell, Hero? speech towards him.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Calls Minato out on his antics, including him never checking on her for being injured during the fight with Lord Humungous, his maid fetish and never trying to warn her about the Aramitama.
Minato Kumon (ElfCollaborator)
- Always Save the Girl: Noriko seems to think this of Minato and Faith, factoring this into her What the Hell, Hero? speech against him. The one time he actually does so is Justified; Faith suffered a Heroic BSoD and Minato simply did what he thought he had to.
- Berserk Button: The strong picking on the weak, explaining why he became a Bully Hunter. Also, his friends being hurt or being accused of not watching out for his friends; this latter one is the one thing which Minato yells at Noriko back over.
- Less seriously, maid costumes being destroyed, which is enough for him to go into an Unstoppable Rage on the Mononoke responsible.
- Bully Hunter: To the extent that he was almost booted from school due to beating up bullies. The Aramitama are simply more powerful bullies for Minato.
- Casanova Wannabe: Flirts with most of the female cast. Only Faith seems to answer positively.
- Casual Kink: Minato really likes maids. So much so he hangs out at a Maid Cafe every day and goes into an Unstoppable Rage when an Aramitama destroys the maid costume Faith was shoved into.
- Chivalrous Pervert: His personality in a nutshell. He's not averse to the female gender, but a person in danger is more concerning for him. He's also very genuinely chivalrous towards the girls he shows interest in, as seen in his behaviour towards Faith.
- Cool Bike: Not just any bike either, but Vimana in bike form.
- Determinator: Another one of his defining character traits, even playing into his defensive strategy. Minato may not be the most physically durable, but he has enough willpower to power straight through even severe injuries, a fact which plays into the first boss fight.
- Fiery Redhead: Not normally, as he generally acts suave and cool when not around maids. However, when his Berserk Button is pushed....
- Fiction 500: The Kumon family are very rich people, courtesy of having worked with the government to protect Japan from Aramitama. Minato's Gaia Driver is partially a result of funding from the Kumon Group.
- Foil: To Shef. Shef is a highly paranoid former arms dealer who freelances with the Demon Hunter Society, Minato is an idealistic young adult who fights to be a hero. This also extends to their playstyle; Shef is a highly versatile gunslinger, whereas Minato is a Mighty Glacier who relies on strong melee attacks.
- Henshin Hero: A Homage to Kamen Rider and, to an extent, GARO.
- Heroic RRoD: Dai-Henshin inflicts this on Minato, as he exposes himself to pure magic from the leylines to grant himself more speed and strength at the cost of severely injuring himself. He does it twice in a row to severely wound the first boss anyway.
- Hyperspace Arsenal: Minato's Requiem.
- Ideal Hero: Minato is trying to be this. As seen with Noriko and Faith, he doesn't always succeed. Still, he comes the closest to this among the group.
- It's Not You, It's My Enemies: The reason he doesn't tell Noriko about the Aramitama prior to her Awakening, along with the justified reason that her hallucinations may well just be mental illness and not signs of being an Awakened, and thus doing so would just make her worse. Noriko calls him out on it.
- Knight in Shining Armor: Minato's Motif and something he tries to emulate. His preferred weapon is even Durandal.
- Mighty Glacier: Very slow-moving in comparison to the rest of the party, but very hard-hitting and very resilient. Dai-Henshin mitigates this and turns him into a Jack-of-All-Stats instead, and Vimana lets him teleport around short distances.
- Multi-Melee Master: Has no ranged options whatsoever, instead specializing in very close-range attacks with various weapons. It seems that Minato can actually summon ranged weapons using his Requiem, but prefers to fight at melee and leave the ranged fighting to Noriko and Faith.
- Nice Guy: One of the nicest members of the team, refusing even to yell back at Noriko during her What the Hell, Hero? speech....until she accuses him of never watching out for his friends. Even then he remains purely in Tranquil Fury.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red to Noriko's Blue, in a literal sense as Minato's player confirmed Minato was designed appearance-wise and personality-wise to match up with Noriko.
- Rousing Speech: Gives one to Faith after her Heroic BSoD. It doesn't entirely chime well with her, but it does the job.
- Shout-Out: His whole character is one to Kamen Rider, including the concept of the Gaia Memory, the place where the world stores all memories and the source of his Hyperspace Arsenal. The Gaia Memory itself is also a Shout-Out to Unlimited Blade Works.
- To cement this, the theme he even plays as he heads to his date with Faith is the theme from the very first Kamen Rider show, Let's Go Rider Kick.
- His Requiem is essentially Shirou's Projection magecraft, and Minato himself is a red-headed hero who relies partially on sheer determination to win fights.
- Stuff Blowing Up: Minato can cause his Regalia to explode to absorb attacks or damage opponents.
Shef Willems (Strider)
- Growing Up Sucks: A bit of an idealist as a child, and wanted to be a scientist of a hero. Didn't see himself becoming what he is right now certainly.
- Foil: To Minato. Shef is The Cynic of the group and a former arms trafficker, Minato is attempting to be an Ideal Hero and is generally cheery. This extends to their fighting styles; Shef is The Gunslinger and uses portals to make impossible shots, Minato relies on swords and other melee weapons to overwhelm an enemy through sheer force.
- Nominal Hero: Shef works with the team of heroes simply for the protection of the organization that runs the group. Thus he may be seen as a hero to outsiders, but he, Wintermute, and Neuromancer know that he's not in this for altruism.
- Only Sane Man: Pretty much set up to be this.
- Super-Persistent Missile: His Tracer attack, not that it comes up much since foes are rarely able to dodge it even once.
- Thinking Up Portals: Has the ability to create portals.
- The Cynic: A highly pessimistic man who looks down a little bit on what he considers the naive idealism of his teammates.
Yoake o-Shiri (spümpkin)
- Another Dimension: Her Requiem allows her to transport the whole battlefield onto a Keijo playing field.
- Ass Kicks You: Neccessitated by her use of Keijo as her fighting style.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: She's a skilled fighter and very knowledgeable at physics and biology but is eccentric and lacking in tact.
- Fiction 500: Is actually nearly, if not equally, as rich as Minato is.
- Passionate Sports Girl: Specifically, about Keijo.
Faith Ai Tatsumaki (Powder Miner)
- Eagle Land: Though the player is an American, Faith was explicitly created with Japanese stereotypes of Americans in mind, in an affectionate parody of them; Faith explicitly nails several of the stereotypes, such as brashness, friendliness, and excited loudness as well as the blonde blue-eyed stereotype of Americans, but she is decidedly a positive character, making her a Type One.
- Glass Cannon: Faith fires special attack lasers and explosions left and right but has nearly no defense even with her Regalia, and often weakens or hurts herself with the blowback of her more powerful attacks.
- Freak Out: When Lord Humungous nearly kills her, she flies into a half-berserk rage out of fear.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: A Nice Girl par excellence and as blonde as they come.
- I Can't Believe a Guy Like You Would Notice Me: Towards Minato.
- Ms. Fanservice: Has a very nice figure which her player repeatedly emphasises.
- Nice Girl: A very sweet and bubbly girl who gets along with most of the group.
- Reluctant Fanservice Girl: Takes constant Clothing Damage and gets shoved into various costumes against her own will.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Is quite flirty, lives in a messy apartment and dresses in a Stripperiffic manner. Is also possibly one of the world's leading experts on the supernatural, and the leading researcher on the Gaia Memory that provides Minato's abilities.
- Cool Big Sis: Is this to Minato.
- Hot Scientist: Very much intelligent due to having invented the Gaia Driver, attractive and extremely flirty.
High Executioner Jason Humungus
- Badass Boast: See above. He proceeds to live up to it.
- Lightning Bruiser: As well as the more literal meaning, Jason hit hard, could dash at very high speed, and took more punishment than the average main battle tank before finally dying.
- Made of Iron: Takes a combined assault from the whole party, and even survives an exploding sword to the heart, courtesy of Minato.
- Villainous Valor: Word of God states that he didn't try to consume any innocent souls during the battle with the group as it would have gone against his code.
