Zizou Olympia

Dark Witch
Voice Actress: Karin Yabiku

Skills: Liner Shot, Comet, Punishment
Revenge Magic: Hyper Dark Arm

A goddess in charge of maintaining the balance of magic, Zizou investigates Germa's suspicious actions. She is the final boss of Sola's story. Her first form is "weak" to Overhelm, her true form has no weakness.

  • Dresses the Same: Averted in this game. Except in Sola's story, where she copies Franzer's clothes.
  • In the Hood: Wears a hood in the opening.
  • Last Chance Hit Point: A villainous example. When her lifebar is emptied, invincibility kicks in and she uses each of the second set of bosses' Revenge Magics. The player has to survive all four before they can land the final hit.
  • Multicolored Hair: Black and white.


Voice Actress: Arisa Noto

Skills: Drop Bomb, Dynamo Plasma, Circlecron
Revenge Magic: ChurroScramble

Sola is the daughter of two Ich researchers. She returns home in search of her parents.

  • Cool Pet: Churros, a flying yellow ball...thing.
  • Double Jump: With Fly, she can have a double, triple, or even quadruple jump.
  • Flat-Earth Atheist: The game flip-flops on this. She tells Pelusa that there are no gods on this world, but acknowledges Zizou as a god...before immediately renouncing her.
  • Generation Xerox: Her hair is a combination of her parents' hair.
  • Having a Blast: Her default weapon, Drop Bomb. Its explosions linger for a second or two.



Voice Actress: None

Skills: Punishment, Sword Drive
Revenge Magic: Princess Strike

Riva is the princess of Rasil. She will be playable in the Steam version of the game.

  • Meganekko: Gains glasses in Episode 2.
