Protagonist

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/protagonist_all_7.png
All appearance options for the protagonist

Voiced by:

The main character of the game. They have no memories of their life before they arrived in Tokyo. It is later revealed that they are an amalgam of souls from each of the 24 worlds, each soul being a "Wanderer" exiled from or killed in their home world.


  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: The Player’s sacred artifact and weapon, a sword named Boundless Tail, takes the form of an Ancient Japanese ceremonial blade with the power to sever anything and everything. Thanks being composed of 24 souls, each from one of the 24 connected worlds in Tokyo, this means the Player is capable of interfering and severing both physical and metaphysical concepts from all 24 worlds with lasting consequences. The prime example being the Player’s severance of Bald Mountain’s hold on Chernobog, allowing him to finally leave his home and experience the world.
  • Achilles' Heel: They are frequently told that them winning the game is impossible by design, as they are unable to stand against the original people who banished each of their 24 souls from their respective world. One such example being Surtr.
  • All-Loving Hero: Has a very forgiving heart, and is willing to offer a friendly hand to even the worst foes.
  • Amnesiac Hero: Starts out the game by being summoned to Tokyo with no recollection of their identity or life before.
  • Character Customization: The player has the option to choose from five different appearances, five different voices, and three gender options (male, female, and nonbinary) to customize the hero.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Can't seem to help themselves from sticking their nose into any given problem. Michael and the other Pillars are quite aware of this trait and plans to exploit it in the future in order to further their own goals.
  • Did You Just Romance Cthulhu?: The people MC can flirt with ranges from regular therians, like Moritaka and humans, such as their classmates to outright Eldritch gods, like Tsathoggua. Of course, that's not going into the fact that MC is literally a fragment of Cthulhu himself!
  • Fallen Angel: One of the Player’s souls is that of Lucifer (referred to in this game as Shaytan), the Morning Star and the first fallen angel.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Their weapon is made up of fragments of various artifacts, including a scythe, but the final form is a traditionally heroic sword.
  • Human Sacrifice: What Michael claims he and the other Pillars plans to turn the Player into. While the details are still murky and Amaterasu stopped Michael’s gloating before he could reveal too much, it seems to be a continuation of what Eden had originally intended for Shaytan. The implications being to turn the Player into an omnipotent tool for the benefits of Eden and/or the Pillars.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Despite the Player's otherwise decidedly human form, their soul is still a patchwork made up of 24 different souls from across multiple cultures and ages. Then there's the fact that one of these souls come from the world of the Old Ones and just happens to be Cthulhu themselves!
  • Kill the Ones You Love: Shown to them by Azathoth to have happened to them over and over throughout hundreds of repeated timelines during the game's course. The only named examples are Shiro, Ryota, Touji, Kengo, Moritaka and Tadatomo, but narration implies there are countless loved ones through each history that end up killing the protagonist for one reason or another.
  • Living MacGuffin: After Chapter 8, it's revealed that the protagonist and their wish upon being summoned is the mechanism causing Tokyo to be trapped in a time loop. As such, the Pillars of each world want to get their hands on them, but they wound up splitting into three different guilds depending on how they wish to handle the protagonist's power: one wishes to personally own and control them, one wants to continue battling them forever through each loop, and the last wishes to sacrifice them to turn them into a God-like System to grant wishes of the masses.
  • Loveable Sex Maniac: Can be played this way via dialogue options: the protagonist has an option to hit on, ogle or otherwise thirst after almost every character they meet, including generic enemies and people actively trying to kill them.
  • Player Character: The character that the player controls and experiences the game through the eyes of.
  • Power at a Price: Being able to sever the Rules and metaphysical concepts of all 24 worlds makes the Player sound unstoppable. Nope. The Player’s still subject the rules of the App and if their Rule were to clash with an opposing Rule, an Exception will be summoned. This also means that due to being considered connected to all 24 worlds, the Player now have a massive number of potential people who’s Rules they might contradict and have a greatly increased chance of triggering an Exception with every battle. This exact situation occurs in chapter 8 when the Player tries to defend against a furious Arc’s chains and wound up creating an Exception Error when the Player’s Rule of Rending clashed with Arc’s Rule of Binding.
  • Reincarnation Romance: Applies to various characters due to the Soul Jar mentioned below: Ophion is a particularly notable example as he was in fact married to one of the player's amalgamate.
  • Soul Jar: Contains the soul of a wanderer from each of the 23 connected worlds. Currently known figures are:
    • Freyr from Yggdrasil
    • Ushiwakamaru from the Land of Wa
    • Shaytan (Satan) from (seemingly) both Eden and Gehenna
    • Susanoo from Takamagahara
    • Cthulu from the world of the Old Ones
    • Eurynome from Olympus
    • Jamukha from Xanadu
    • Seth from Aaru
    • Veles from Kitezh
    • Quetzalcoatl from El-Dorado
  • Weirdness Magnet: Seemingly incapable of so much as attending a school event or going to the beach without things devolving into a nightmare cataclysm scenario.


Shiro Motoori

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shirou_3star_full.png

Voiced by: Masato Yoshida

The class rep for the second-years at Shinjuku Academy, Shiro is a very diligent student, and one of the first friends the protagonist makes.


  • Artifact of Doom: Granted the Necronomicon by the app game, and initially was completely overwhelmed by it; until the Hero was able to free him from its control and enable him to wield it as his own. The Genociders were able to use Azathoth and Yog's connection to once again re-possess Shiro with Yog's presence in chapter 7, this time to have him act as a diversion to buy them time to prepare.
  • Ascended Fanboy: An occult nerd and Cthulhu mythos fan who both came into possession of the Necronomicon, and ended up the caretaker of a god from the lore (for better or worse.)
  • Beauty Mark: One under his eye, normally obscured by his glasses.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Optionally, if the player decides to go through Shiro's love quest with Kengo as the leader. This is further incentivized as Kengo's version of the quest has quite a bit of alternate dialogue.
  • Combat Tentacles: Yog!Shiro sprouts these when he gets serious during the final confrontation in chapter 7. Up to Eleven when it turns out these can inflict Time Stands Still with just light touch on their victims! That's not even going into the fact that he could sprout dozens of them and make them the size of a whole room!
  • Cordon Bleugh Chef: The "Valentine Panic!" quest involves Shiro making chocolate... using the Necronomicon. While the chocolate itself apparently tastes good, some very strange ingredients go into it, including Sitri's feathers, and he eventually ends up creating a SHOGGOTH made out of liquid chocolate.
  • Demonic Possession: Much of chapter 2 revolves around freeing him when the Necronomicon takes control and runs amok in the city. It happens again in chapter 7. Thankfully we managed release him from Yog's control, seemingly permanently this time.
  • Did We Just Have Tea with Cthulhu?: Near the end of chapter 5, when the group meets Tsathoggua for the first time. Initially, Shirou is wary of meeting with a Great Old One but quickly realizes Tsathoggua not only means them no harm, but is downright friendly. Shiro's fear quickly gives way to his nagging nanny side, and scolds the NEET god for his laziness.
  • A Father to His Men: Over time, the Evils went from a demonic burden that weighed on Shiro to, essentially, his children.
  • Gameplay and Story Integration: In story scenes, Shiro's primary method of attack is shown to be commanding Evils. Reflected in the gameplay by the fact that most of his skills are the same as the Evils, sometimes in better versions.
  • For Your Own Good: His constant nagging and needling towards Kengo comes from a place of love: he claims to have laid awake at night more than once worrying over Kengo's future.
  • Meaningful Name: His online handle when chatting with Shuichi, Alhazred, comes from the H.P. Lovecraft character, who wrote the Necronomicon.
  • The Minion Master: Battles by summoning and commanding swarms of D-Evils.
  • Neat Freak: Clashes with Kengo and Tsathoggua over this.
  • Personality Powers: His Gatekeeper Role and Opening Rule result in a power to open portals, from which he can summons imp-like Evils: reflecting his occult fandom and yearning for worlds beyond Tokyo.
  • Pocket Protector: Happens in his Love Quest, when the character he's on a date with is attacked by enemy guild members and narrowly survives a knife attack thanks to a book Shiro had given them earlier.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Kengo's red.
  • Shout-Out: The appearance of Shiro's version of the Necronomicon is based off of its appearance in the Evil Dead movies.
  • The Smart Guy: Shiro tends to study and prepare compared to the rest of his companions. He spends much of his time analyzing situations and gathering information in order to give himself and his guild the advantage.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: When they were children, Kengo and Shiro were very close. But they grew apart as they got older, Shiro became more serious about school and study while Kengo was only interested in fighting, and began skipping school to participate in the Berserkers' arena battles.
  • We Win... Because You Didn't: Personally held in special contempt by Michael, because in at least one timeline Shiro opted to kill the Player and reset the loop rather than let Michael have the win.


Kengo Takabushi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kengo_3star_full.png
Mixed Martial Artist

Voiced by: Yuuhei Iwanaga

A Second Year Student and one of the Player Character's classmates. Kengo is a dedicated martial artist and tends to solve his problems with his fists. Often brash and confrontational, though Kengo does have a caring side.


  • Amplifier Artifact: Granted Thor's magical belt of strength, Megingjord, by the app game.
  • Book Dumb: One of his homework grades is visible in Jinn's beach 5 star: with a score of 12.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: His first idea for dealing with any situation is to punch his way out.
  • The Big Guy: Kengo is this in spades. Physically large, very strong, and not the best at expressing himself unless it comes to fighting.
  • Character Development: Goes through one somewhat in his character quests.
  • Jerk Jock: Was this especially in middle school; see Unwitting Instigator of Doom below.
  • Only Six Faces: Hit hard by this when sharing screentime with Oniwaka, who is nearly his twin.
  • Personality Powers: More straightforward compared to others: His Role is Fighter and Rule is Infinity, granting him an endless well of power to keep fighting.
  • Required Secondary Powers: Nope! Sure, Kengo can keep amplifying his strength infinitely, but his body's still human, so going pass a certain limit will likely result in grievous injuries and potentially death from an overload. This is partly why Kengo goes to the mountain to train so much. By increasing his physical durability, he can thus increase the amount of energy he can draw and hold from his sacred artifact.
  • Unmanly Secret: Hides his sweet tooth during the Valentine's Day event, due to japanese cultural stereotypes about men and sugary sweets.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Part of the cause of Chapter 3's Exception boss when Oniwaka, with his rule of Usurpation, tries to steal Kengo's power, which is Infinitude.
    • Also indirectly responsible for Sitri's masculinity issues and the final conflict of the valentine event; one Valentine's Day, years ago when Kengo and Sitri were both in middle school, Sitri offered Valentine's chocolate to Kengo. He harshly rejected Sitri's feelings, tossing the chocolate on the ground and stating that tough guys shouldn't like sweets. Sitri wound up developing a complex about being seen as masculine and tough for years, and snapped when he caught Kengo stuffing his face with chocolate and loving it much later.


Ryota Yakushimaru

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ryouta_3star_full.png
Easygoing Teen

Voiced by: Yoshihito Oonami

A second year high school student at Shinjuku Academy, and another of the Player Character's classmates. Ryota often has a cheery demeanor and is known for his love for food. He often serves as a balance between his more outspoken peers, and has many friends and contacts outside of Shinjuku Academy.


  • Androcles' Lion: Despite being given an opportunity to escape from the oni by the hero, Ryota comes back shortly to return the favor with an attack from behind, when the Oni gains the upper hand.
  • Big Eater
  • Big Fun: Tries to be a happy, cheerful guy all around.
  • Distressed Dude: Being rescued by the player is how their friendship starts.
  • Fat Best Friend: The first of the trio the protagonist actually meets and befriends
  • First Guy Wins: Should the player choose to romance him.
  • The Heart: Between the abrasive Shiro and the stubborn Kengo butting heads, Ryota acts as the middle man for the both of them, mediating the conflicts.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite always projecting an outwardly cheery, carefree appearance, Nyarlathotep digs at some of his insecurities in Chapter 4, where Ryota comes into focus.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: His happy-go-lucky nature stems from this. While he is successful on the surface, he still feels that his friendships are mostly superficial, and is self-conscious that he lacks a truly deep connection to any of them.
  • Lethal Chef: As opposed to Shiro, who can make chocolate just fine but ends up using strange ingredients with odd side effects, Ryota's chocolate during "Valentine's Panic" is just straight-up horrible. The aforementioned shoggoth is repulsed by it.
  • Personality Powers: Reflecting his desire to be helpful and be liked by those around him, he was given various healing abilities, as well as the ability to create limitless quantities of liquid via the Holy Grail.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: The cause of the Exception boss in Chapter 4, when his ability: to heal all wounds, conflicts with Zabaniya's ability (a fire that will kill without fail), which causes the app to glitch out once again, summoning the Fisher King.
  • White Mage: His skillset in a nutshell: nearly everything he does is a heal of some kind.


Toji Sakimori

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/touji_3star_full.png
Exorcist

Voiced by: Junya Inaba

A priest, exorcist, and investigator that operates throughout Western Tokyo. He often works to keep a handle on Shadows and rogue Transients that may be running amok throughout Tokyo, ensuring that Tokyo is kept safe. At first serving as a minor antagonist, he eventually joins the Summoners and Shinjuku Academy.


  • Born Detective: Comes from a long line of priests and spiritual investigators. He works closely with the government on supernatural matters, and acts as a consultant with the police, despite being in high school. He even regularly trains with the police to better hone his own skills.
  • Control Freak: Toji has been dealing with rogue transients, malicious shadows, and restless spirits his entire life, and very often alone. He has a way he operates, and deviations from that way often has him become confrontational with others. It's notable that he's easing up on this state of mind recently, but he still gets butthurt when people challenge him.
  • Dual Wielding: Wields twin katanas.
  • Horned Humanoid: Has a pair of amorphous horn-like protrusions growing from his head, most likely from his oni ancestry.
  • Hunter of His Own Kind: Part of the deal Toji's ancestors made to stay in this world. Clan Sakimori was tasked to hunt down any oni or other transients that managed to make it to our world, Toji included.
  • The Lancer: First introduced as someone in opposition to the main character. While other members of the guild try to seek abstract methods to solve problems, Toji tries to take the direct and pragmatic approach to the situations he encounters.
  • Memory Jar: One of the abilities of his sacred artifact is that his swords hold the memories of all the previous wielders, which are then interlaced with his own. This does have the unfortunate consequence of Angst as Toji has admitted that sometimes he's not sure which memories are his.
  • Old Cop, Young Cop: This with Police Chief Hogen. After the death of Toji's parents, Hogen became something of a Parental Substitute for Toji as well as Toji's mentor, one of Hogen's very few redeeming qualities. He was also shown to have a mutual respect with other police officers during the Valentine Festival.
  • Old-School Chivalry: Toji is a very traditional guy, and while, aside from Shiro, he's one of the most upfront about his attraction to you, he would also prefer to take it slow. He attests that your canon kiss doesn't count, as it was done to resolve an Exception and that he'd like to court you properly. Further attempts to flirt with him aren't exactly rebuffed, but he'd much prefer to do so when it isn't just teasing.
  • Oni: Of a sorts. Long before the events of this game, Toji's ancestors, oni, migrated from another world. It's not clear just how far removed Toji is from this ancestry.
  • Rightly Self-Righteous: Toji has very strong and critical opinions about the common spread of the app. With the state of Tokyo, and how the game progresses, he's not technically wrong in his stance. However, he's often very intense in his attempts to limit the proliferation of the app, oftentimes (especially in the very early game) putting him at odds with most of the people he meets.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Prior to joining the Summoners, Toji is all business without time or interest in personal matters. After receiving the Magic Kiss from the main character, some of this facade melts away, revealing a much more caring and sensitive person than most would give Toji credit for.
  • You Are What You Hate: His family responsibility has instilled this into him to some degree. There's a definite level of shame Toji feels in regards to having oni ancestry, and will not talk about it if he doesn't have to. He doesn't necessarily hate transients, but his views on transients and their relation to humans from a legal standpoint is less forgiving than a good number of the other characters you meet.

Moritaka

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/moritaka_3star_full.png
Virtuous Dog Warrior

Voiced by: Kappei Yamaguchi

A Transient from Wa no Kuni, and another of the Player Character's classmates. Moritaka is a cheerful presence among the Summoners and values friendship and honor above all other things. While still in training, Moritaka does still have considerable skill with a blade, and one day hopes to be a master swordsman.


  • An Ice Person: His sacred artifact is a katana that turns into a long blade of ice, which he can use to freeze enemies.
  • Birds of a Feather: Seemingly has a tendency to befriend fellow canines, as he is shown to be good friends with Garmr, Cusith, and quickly makes friends with Agyo when he is summoned in the second New Years event.
  • Butt-Monkey: Comes with the Nice Guy territory, unfortunately. The game loves to place Moritaka in this position. One notable instance is that Moritaka ended up eating Ryota's food, which was bad enough to make him lose consciousness.
  • Covered with Scars: Several on his face along, with yet more shown in his more revealing skins.
  • Eager Rookie: Still a trainee swordsman lacking experience in life-or-death battle, as pointed out by Shino who is the shadow of the person that was partially responsible for the creation of his soul.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: While he is from a world very similar to Japan, it bears much more resemblance to *feudal* Japan than modern Tokyo. Moritaka being rather old-fashioned and struggling with things like English loanwords and technology is sometimes played for laughs.
  • A Friend in Need: In chapter 6, when a wounded Garmr arrives at his school unexplainably wounded, exhausted and pursued by mysterious shadows; Moritaka immediately steps up to protect his friend and ends up embroiling himself in the wider scale guild war headed by the Genociders.
  • Furry Confusion: The friend he occasionally refers to, Yoshiro, was apparently a normal non-anthropomorphic dog.
  • Furry Reminder: Falls for the "Shake!" trick every time.
  • Ear Notch: Among his many scars.
  • I Got You Covered: Pulls off a nick-of-time rescue for the Protagonist against Arc, helping fend off their attack until The Cavalry arrives.
  • Insistent Terminology: Moritaka does not like being called a dog, and would much rather you refer to him as a Canine Therian.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: His Weapon of Choice.
  • Mundane Utility: The icy waters his sword conjures makes a great improvised shower after an intense training session.
  • Nice Guy: Moritaka is all around a good person. By no means does this make him a pushover, but Moritaka would rather be helpful and make friends than be confrontational.
  • The Pen Is Mightier: One of his 4-star skins replaces his trusty Katana with a giant calligraphy brush.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: While none of his skins show him doing so, it is stated that he has an affinity for it.

Agyo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/agyo_3.png
Doggy Defender

Voiced by: Maiko Ito

A Transient from the Land of Wa who grew up as a shrine guardian. After his grandfather died, Agyo was summoned to Tokyo on a wish to meet someone new. After meeting the Player Character and unsuccessfully locating a fellow guardian dog to help guard his shrine, Agyo has since joined the Summoners and protects the guild headquarters.


  • Demoted to Extra: Joins the Summoners guild at the end of his questline, yet due to his status as a limited event unit, he has not appeared in the following main story chapters.
  • Guardian Entity: A guardian spirit in the shape of a dog transient looking for something worthy to protect.


Hanuman

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fg_hanuman01_skin2.png
Prankster From The West

Voiced by: Kappei Yamaguchi

A Transient with a love for pop culture and pranks. Arriving in Tokyo was a revelation to Hanuman, and he has since immersed himself in the excitement and bombast seen in manga, anime, and video games. In particular he wishes to become a ninja master and has dedicated his training to meet this goal.


  • Monkey King Lite: While many scholars believe the original Hanuman served as some inspiration for Sun Wukong in the epic tale, this version of Hanuman is undoubtedly inspired by the latter. From his childish trickster personality, to his monkey-like appearance, Hanuman may as well have been named Sun Wukong.

     Ikebukuro Berserkersnote  

Claude

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/claude_3star_full.png
Ruler of Ikebukuro

Voiced by: 下総一薫

Guild master of the Ikebukuro Guild. As one of the wealthiest people in Tokyo, he created a massive underground colosseum underneath the city to allow the operations of his guild to take place. Claude enjoys watching others fight, and specifically fight for him. He strives to be an absolute ruler, though hidden depths to this dive exist.


  • Abusive Parent: It didn’t start out that way. But the moment Claude confessed he would rather be the “Princess” than the “Hero”, his mother quickly grew disgusted with him and forbid him from ever having such dreams ever again. It’s no wonder he would later dispose of her when he came of age to take over the family.
  • Affably Evil: Don’t let his bombastic personality and enthusiasm fool you. This man has already figured out a dozen ways to make you useful the moment he catches sight of you.
  • Artistic Age: He’s definitely not a high schooler. By his own admission, he believes he should only be about a year or so older than the main protagonist.
  • Beneath the Mask: In order to become the “perfect Emperor”, Claude learned at a very young age his own dreams were worthless before his family. While he had initially given up on his dreams and by extension himself, he hadn’t forgotten them. It took some inspirational words of courage from the main protagonist to finally snap him out of it and make him determined to realize his dreams once more.
  • Bi the Way: Explicitly stated in his bio.
  • Blood Knight: Revels in the ecstasy of gladiator fights, which he can induce with his Sacred Artifact.
  • Blood Sport: The true purpose of Claude’s school. An immense underground colosseum is built underneath the school where the students can fight one another in official matches for both the school’s and Claude’s entertainment. Those in the top 10 are given immense status and privilege in the school. As you can imagine this attracts a lot of Blood Knight characters.
  • Cool Crown: The form his Sacred Artifact took, a golden laurel wreath typical of depictions of Roman Emperors.
  • Dope Slap: One the receiving end of one from the main protagonist when they learned that he willfully provoked a life-threatening situation just so he could see them fight for him and “save” him in his character quest.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Claude’s mother smashed his dreams of becoming a princess and by extension being a person worth another’s love and devotions very early on his life. The turning point began when he told his mother about a story he loved, where a hero slays a dragon and rescues the trapped princess and they both fall in love. When the young Claude told his mother he wanted to be the Princess instead of the Hero, their relationship quickly soured, and whatever love they had for one another withered, resulting in our current Claude. Thankfully he gets better.
  • Did They or Didn't They?: After receiving his beautiful wedding dress from Ded’s Santa bag and a note to excuse him from having to obey school curfew, Claude proceeds to try on the dress and spent the night in the protagonist's dorm room for his “honey-moon”.
  • Emotion Bomb: His Sacred Artifact allows him to whip up people's frenzy for battle. It also allows him to exert some minor control over those affected. Notably, Horkeu Kamui is immune to this effect, due to his Rule rendering his emotions unable to be heated up by outside forces.
  • Fiery Redhead: Figuratively and literally given his powers.
  • Flower Motif: Roses, especially in his Christmas variant.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: Well, more of a tuxedo and wedding dress combo with a very long flowing lace veil, but it definitely counts. It was the sign that he would finally be able to achieve his dream of being a bride and someone worth the love of another. He also gets a New Year’s yukata during the Anniversary event.
  • Playing with Fire: His in-game element is fire, while his Rule conceptually inspires fervor and in extreme cases, blood-lust, in the hearts of those around him. Kamui has been the only one shown to actively counter this ability with his own Rule, which keeps his spirit cold and perpetually calm, when Claude tried to have him murder the main protagonist while they were unconscious. In his 5-star variant, his clothes are shown burning away leaving him in only a speedo.
  • Making a Splash: His new element for his Christmas variant.
  • Matricide: Highly implied. Justified given his mother’s nature and his upbringing.
  • Meaningful Name: Claude, as in Nero Claudius Augustus Germanicus, one of the most infamous Roman Emperors in history. Considering Claude has already mastered most of the experiences and power from his Sacred Artifact, this might not bode too well…
  • Red Baron: The Emperor of Ikebukuro and The Bride of Christmas Eve.
  • Rousing Speech: Gives one in Chapter 8 as he and the Berserkers storm the Genociders’ stronghold.
  • Royal "We": Speaks this way in the English localization.
  • Something About a Rose: Claude’s heavily associated with roses.
  • Support Party Member: His role in both of his variants, especially in his Christmas variant which has significantly better buffs compare to his original.
  • The Fatalist: His true nature since the start of the game until about the end of Chapter 7. Underneath the bravado of the Magnificent Bastard, Claude had resigned himself to living and dying as the “Emperor of Ikebukuro” here in the walled Tokyo, never once setting foot in the outside world, since his early childhood when his dreams were smashed by his family. As chapter 9 revealed, this may have also been partly due to the knowledge Duo had given him about the time loop in Tokyo that was also something beyond his power to resist.
  • The Chessmaster: Invites the main protagonist to accompany him for a date/body guard duty at Hakumen’s underground casino. Claude then had Snow implant a bug in the protagonist's hair to gather any important info on his enemies when they inevitably get in trouble. This overlaps with Magnificent Bastard.
  • Vague Age: On paper, he’s a student. In reality, he’s not only the student council president at his school, but also the headmaster and the owner of the school (although he claims he’s only a year or so older than the protagonist).
  • While Rome Burns: Granted, Babalon had made sure incapacitate him beforehand. Claude still did nothing to aid his escape while the protagonist stormed the Ikebukuro guild to take it back and rescue him.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Downplayed, but his Bride costume straddle the lines between a tuxedo and dress.


Snow

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/snow_3star_full.png
The Butler from Ikebukuro

Voiced by: 下総一薫

A Lion Therian who serves as Butler, administrator, and bodyguard to Claude within the Berserkers. His nature attracts him to those with the potential to become Kings, and throws his entire being into doing what he can to make their ambitions reality.



Garmr

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/garmr_3star_full.png
Loyal Mutt

Voiced by: Yuuhei Iwanaga

Hailing from the world of Yggdrasil, and originally the guardian dog of Hel, Garmr now works as the doorman and guard of the Berserkers. Fiercely loyal and innocent, Garmr takes his job seriously and will not allow anyone through the front doors of the Colosseum without first defeating him in combat.


  • Adorkable: Downplayed. The player character finds him endearing, but his lack of social skills grate on everyone fast.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: He's incredibly immature and around the protagonist's age, if not younger.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Extremely odd, even by the cast's standards.
  • The Ditz: Because Dogs Are Dumb. It's explicitly stated that thinking is "not his strong suit".
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Unabashedly envious of anyone who may divert his master's attention away from him - particularly dislikes Cu Sith, who doesn't seem to acknowledge his existence, for this reason.
  • Grievous Harm with a Body: Subverted - it's his own body he barrels at his enemies as opposed to someone else's.
  • Hulk Speak: Speaks like this to show that he isn't entirely together.
  • No Social Skills: Interacts very poorly with everyone but the protagonist.
  • Stepford Smiler: Played for Laughs. His clingy behavior is a result of feelings of abandonment by prior masters and his almost militant devotion to his position as the guild's guard dog.
  • Stone Wall: No more than other characters with the Beastman skill, but his main use is beefing up squishier allies behind him.
  • Undying Loyalty: His defining trait. He even remembers all the humans he's served in the past, including an old woman.

Bathym

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bathym_3star_full.png
Capoeira Fighter

Voiced by: Masashiro Ogata

A Transient summoned from the world of Gehenna. He is prone to flashy battles and can usually be found at the underground Colosseum of the Ikebukuro Guild. He uses his agility and tricky movement to his advantage. Because of his friendly demeanor, he has many ardent fans. He's not particularly fond of opponents who only fight to win. On the other hand, he likes opponents who prioritize pleasing the crowd.


  • After-Action Patch-Up: To Ikutoshi in chapter 3, after he's injured in the crossfire of a battle between a possessed Oniwaka and Macan.
    • Also plays nurse to the protagonist on a fairly regular basis, including: Andvari's character quest after a cavein, the Christmas sled race after a crash, and after the protagonist collapses in the snow on the onsen mountain.
  • Brains and Brawn: Has both in equal measure, but pretends otherwise.
  • Camp Gay: Has all the mannerisms, though he doesn't flirt any less with a female player.
  • Dance Battler: Uses capoeira as a fighting style specifically for its flashy, crowd-pleasing moves.
  • The Fighting Narcissist: His look, fighting style and stage persona are all carefully chosen to wow audiences and draw attention to himself, though he does have his reasons outside simply wanting fame.
  • Gods Need Prayer Badly: His reason for coming to Tokyo and becoming a celebrity combatant in the first place: in the game's setting; demons feed on worship or being in some way 'looked up to'. When demons became looked down upon in his own world, some responded by becoming tyrannical and violent to inspire fear in others rather than worship. Bathym instead chose to become a glamorous celebrity.
  • Gratuitous English: Frequently, though not on the level of Nyarlathotep: Bathym often uses small english phrases or words such as ON STAGE or SHINING!
  • Heroic Host: Has a demon inhabiting his tail that he simply calls Tail-chan, which fights alongside him and acts like an additional limb as part of Bathym's heavily kick-based fighting style.
  • Hidden Depths: He plays up a ditzy facade but is actually quite intelligent, with a wealth of knowledge in medicine and geology.
  • Honorary Uncle: To Sitri. Bathym was a good friend of Sitri's father, and played a babysitter role to Sitri for years. He also loves to share embarrassing Baby Sitri stories to anyone who will listen.
  • In Touch with His Feminine Side: A very flamboyant lover of perfume, jewelry and makeup.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Plays this role deliberately among the Berserkers as part of his showmanship.
  • The Nicknamer: Ikucchi for Ikutoshi, and Polly for Pollux.
  • Stripperiffic: Applies to many of the game's characters, but Bathym is one of the upper tiers for sure: his default outfit is essentially a jockstrap and shoulder pauldron, and his other outfits are similarly revealing or skintight.

Andvari

Miserly Dwarf

Voiced by: Yoshihito Oonami

A Transient who belongs to the short-statured fey race known as dwarves. He loves money and treasure. Since coming to this Tokyo that has become intersected with other worlds, he's ventured into one shady business after another. Recently, he's been frequenting the underground Colosseum of the Ikebukuro Guild as book keeper and to sell items of suspect origins.


  • A Way Out of a Cave-In: The primary conflict of his character quest, after his cursed ring causes a tunnel collapse that almost kills him, if not for the protagonist's intervention.
  • Cursed Item: The red-jeweled ring on his finger is his sacred artifact, which has two effects. One: to lead him to Rewards, such as gold and valuable treasures. Two: to inflict Retribution on him proportional to those treasures, such as attracting hordes of slimes or collapsing tunnels. The curse's effect can however be lessened if he travels with a group, as the metaphorical load of the curse is spread among everyone he brings along.
  • Jerkass: Invites the player along with Nomad, Bathym and Pollux on a treasure hunting expedition during his character quest. He later reveals that the primary reason he brought anyone at all along that he'd have to split the haul with was because he needed more bodies along to dilute the effect of his cursed ring.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: He is absolutely baffled by Chernobog's innocence and naivete, unable to approach him with the usual sleazy businessman persona he would use for anyone else.
  • Money Fetish: Often played for comic relief.

Taurus Mask (Daisuke Ikusaba)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/taurus_mask_3star_full.png
High School Pro Wrestler

Voiced by: Takashi Yonezawa

A high school wrestling captain who attends an elite sports school known for training top athletes. His everyday persona, Daisuke Ikusaba, is a meek and socially awkward young man, but when he dons his horned mask the vibrant, boisterous Taurus Mask is born. He is the 10th top ranked battler in the Ikebukuro Berserkers guild.


  • Birds of a Feather: Bathym likes him precisely because they are very similar at heart when Daisuke is in Taurus mode: martial arts performers whose ultimate goal is to wow the crowd and put on a show.
  • Clark Kenting: His mask is the only measure he uses to hide his identity, despite the distinctive green singlet and summoner's crest.
  • Establishing Character Moment: The first time the player sees him is in mid pep talk to himself in the mirror, maskless. When he realizes the hero is there he panics, dives for his mask and immediately launches into a tirade swearing revenge.
  • Large Ham: He shouts nearly every word he says as Taurus Mask and carries a microphone at all times just in case that doesn't cut it.
  • Masked Luchador: Very much so, to the point that he cannot tolerate anyone seeing him unmasked.
  • A Minor Kidroduction: His first character quest begins with a flashback to his youth, when he attended a pro-wrestling match. The larger-than-life heroic personas of the wrestlers were what inspired him to change his timid nature.
  • Serious Business: Do NOT imply that professional wrestling is fake while he's in earshot.
  • Shrinking Violet: Without his mask, he's barely able to hold a conversation without getting flustered and stammering his way through.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Often cites this as a fact. On top of appointing the hero as his tag-team partner, Daisuke seemingly has a long history of pestering Asterios in attempts to form the bull-themed wrestling duo of his dreams.

Attendant to Heroes

Voiced by: Masato Yoshida

A warrior and Stray Transient who appeared from the world of Kamuykotan without the aid of a Summoner. He loves the human race and teaches them his warrior ways. This divine wolf currently resides among the militant Ikebukuro Berserkers in search of a human of the caliber of a hero who he can call Master. He wishes to instruct a hero for whom he can become both fang and shield. On the battlefield, he is a stern teacher and a tool to aid the work of a hero but during his daily life, he would completely spoil the Summoner he calls Master. He tends to become good friends with others who enjoy caretaking and housework.


  • Almighty Janitor: Noted by the rest to have the potential and strength to climb much higher within Ikebukuro's rankings than the position he actually holds, but he chooses to stay lower deliberately where he will be more easily able to encounter a worthy hero.
  • An Ice Person: His Rule in the app's system is Glaciation, giving him various ice related abilites. While he can use it offensively, he has also used it both to block Chernobog from freezing the player, and to freeze and remove poison from the hero's body.
  • But Thou Must!: Lampshaded ingame, that the player can't refuse to be Horkeu Kamui's hero. The dialogue options are 'Yes' and 'I have no other choice?!'
  • Canis Major: A very big wolf.
  • Coat Cape: His default outfit has him wear a jacket this way.
  • Mentor Ship: What his relationship to the player becomes, should he be chosen as the hero's lover.
  • My Greatest Failure: Deeply regretful over his clan's practice of training heroes, only to send them off on their own where many meet their demise. After this had happened to one too many of his own trainees, Kamui left his clan, swearing that he wouldn't be a distant mentor but a companion always at his hero's side.
  • Sexy Mentor: The player has many opportunities to say so, and judging by the fandom's reaction...
  • Training from Hell: Horkeu Kamui has a habit of coddling his trainee in daily life, but his training regimen is no joke. He casually suggests at one point that by the time he's done with the player, 100 battles in a row will be no problem.

His skills and abilities have been trained from a young age, putting him on equal footing among even the Rankers of Ikeburuko.

Nomad

Jack-of-all-Trades

Voiced by: Sousuke Fuji

A capable jack-of-all-trades Transient who also carries out bodyguard and detective work around the Kabukicho area in Shinjuku. the name Nomad is a pseudonym he uses when dealing with clients. He has been modified against his will to look like a tiger and is currently in search of the culprit, upon whom he would exact revenge.


  • Full-Frontal Assault: His Sacred Artifact has the slight side effect of burning his clothes off when activated. The player can comment on it. Nomad's rather displeased by how it keeps ruining his clothes.
  • New Job as the Plot Demands: Nomad's a private investigator, but in most of his appearances he tends to do everything but that, as he often needs to work odd jobs in order to earn enough income to pay rent. These range from bodyguard work, to running a yakisoba stand, to being a workout dance instructor (just to name a few).
  • Playing with Fire: Unleashing the power of his Sacred Artifact makes him move incredibly fast, causing him to become a fiery shooting star.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: To catnip, as you'd expect of a tiger. It makes him act like a kitten before fainting. He carries some around in case he needs to calm Macan down, but he's very strict about avoiding exposing himself to it.

Macan Gadungan

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/magan_3star_full.png
Colosseum Colossus

Voiced by: Shou Kouda

The champion of the underground pro wrestling scene in Ikebukuro. He was summoned from the world called Shangri-La to immediately be sold in illegal Transient auction. He was traded like merchandise but then killed his abusive Summoner and escaped, becoming a Stray Transient. Because he respects individuals who rely on their physical strength, he detests those who use underlings to fight their battles.


  • Abhorrent Admirer: To Nomad. Since they're both tigers, Macan considers Nomad his "brother" and acts friendly towards him, but Nomad dislikes Macan and calls him an "insane freak".
  • Fusion Dance: Suggests that this is his origin, from the merging of a human and a normal tiger.
  • I Am A Humanitarian: Believes that the strong should eat the strong, and based on his philosophy that means humanoids eating other humanoids. The hero's first meeting with him in the story makes it clear he's eaten more than one person before, but on the flip side he is also willing to embrace the idea of himself coming to this end if the one doing so is strong enough. It's noted In-Universe this creeps people out a lot.
  • Lost in Translation: The specific kanji he uses for "eat", "喰う", is noted on the wiki to also be slang for "defeat" and "have sex with". While the English version does keep some of the innuendo, it's nowhere near as blatant. Now go re-read some of his lines with that in mind, and...
  • Shirtless Captives: His 4-Star skin, added during the Chapter 7 promotional campaign.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Of the furry variant. His swimsuit skin ironically averts this, giving him a blue hoodie.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Like Nomad, catnip disables him. Nomad weaponizes this to calm Macan down when he's on a rampage.

Winged Pugilist

Voiced by: Toshiyuki Hosaka

A Transient practicing highly spiritual martial arts who hails originally from the world of Olympus. He was once a godly being but because he shared his divine blood with his brother, only his right half remains divine while his left half is human. As he and his brother share his divinity, he believes that his brother has also been summoned somewhere in Tokyo and wanders in search of him. He is still practically immortal and so respects those fearless warriors who fight at the risk of their lives. He is currently a guest at Ikebukuro Guild and is rather comfortable with their method of using force as the deciding factor. He feels a particular affinity toward a certain someone who fights with lightning enveloping his fists.

She is the acting guild master of the guild and friend of Ryota. She is also the student council Vice President of Daikanyama Academy. She leads the ever expanding Aoyama Guild, which spreads from Minato Ward to Shibuya Ward and is comprised of Transients who have fled from other areas. She is a plucky nun whose strong will enables her guild to resist all the harassment aimed at them from the neighboring Roppongi Guild. She's been involved with the guild since they were still a volunteer group that provided welfare for stray Transients. As she never acts out of self-interest, she does not get along with entrepreneurial types concerned with wealth.


  • All-Loving Hero: She's a kind and benevolent girl that believes in redemption and the good in everyone.
  • Consummate Liar: She frequently lies to save people from being punished by the guild.
  • Dead Person Impersonation: She's actually not "Maria"; rather, the original Maria gave her her name and identity, and she tries her best to live up to her legacy.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: You'd think a sweet, kind nun such as herself would be associated with Aether energies.
  • Emotion Eater: She absorbs pain from others and transfers it to herself. She can later use it to summon thorns.
  • Green Thumb: She can summon briars from her sacred artifact. Her beach variant swaps her Nether affinity for Wood.
  • Nun Too Holy: Despite being a Consummate Liar, her status as acting head of the guild remains.
  • Messianic Archetype: She's a kind and benevolent girl that believes in redemption. She also takes the pain of others and inflicts it on herself. And finally, her sacred artifact, "Golgotha's Crucifix" is named after the place where Jesus was crucified.

Hell's Torture Specialist

Voiced by: Hiroaki Hirata

He commands the angels protecting Aoyama alongside Maria. He is a Transient who specializes in torture and can inflict internal burns on a victim. Furthermore, he is a tool of heavens who prioritizes divine law above his Summoner's orders and his own will. He deals with everyone politely and even sinners are no exception. Knowing he is not omnipotent, he is ashamed at the arrogance of his dealing judgment upon others. He defines himself as a tool to be used by others and tries to remain emotionless. He deals the same pain to himself that he inflicts upon sinners as a means of maintaining balance with himself.


  • The Dragon: Acts as this in the second half of Chapter 4.
  • Divide by Zero: Is victim to a Rule overflow when Ryota tries to heal him. An Exception ensues, and Zabaniyya is overloaded with its power, such that he is sent back to his home world.
  • Exalted Torturer: His Role and method of gathering information.
  • Fanservice: His default outfit has him wear a black unitard exposing his thighs. His "mummy" skin has a prominent bulge.
  • Good Is Not Nice: While he is polite to everyone, he still judges people through their actions and punishes them accordingly.
  • Lawful Stupid: He can be such a stickler for the rules, such as trying to punish someone for lying when at the same time, the Aoyama Guild is under siege by Roppongi Tycoons.
  • Playing with Fire: He uses hellfire that burns until it destroys without fail.
  • The Stoic: He considers himself a tool of punishment used to exact justice... At least most of the time.

Voiced by: Orie Kimoto

This Transient came through the gate to Tokyo from the world called Eden. She's confident in her own cuteness and feels the utmost ecstasy when being called pure and adorable. She carries a Sacred Artifact that can drive people crazy through the power of moonlight. Aiming for the top, she competes against the plethora of idols hailing from other worlds.


  • Compelling Voice: Has the power to sway people's hearts with her voice. However, she notably avoids using this ability while performing and making public appearances as an idol, instead gathering fans through her natural charm.
  • Don't Call Me "Sir": She doesn't like being called "Lady Gabriel" by the other angel transients because it doesn't fit her cute image.

Idol Fans

Voiced by: Shou Kouda

A Transient who eternally seeks the soft glow of the moonlight. He has a tendency to be a bit of a stalker. Even here in Tokyo, connected to as it is with 23 other worlds, he wanders in search of the light that drives him mad...in the form of an idol he follows religiously. His possessive streak is so overpowering that he can't quite hide his jealousy toward those close to his adored idol.

Based on the Norse entity Hati, the moon-eating wolf.


  • Crazy Jealous Guy: At one point kidnaps Gabriel to have her heart.
  • Doppelgänger: His sacred artifact allows him to bend light and create an illusion of himself. This contrasts with Nyarlathotep below.
  • Fanboy: Pretty much his whole character revolves around him being one for Gabriel.
  • Insistent Terminology: While he's referred to as Managarmr in his character files and text box headers, the English translation of the game repeatedly calls him Hati.
  • Loony Fan: For Gabriel. Notably, he tries to control himself and is content to simply watch her shows and buy her merchandise until Nyarlathotep warps his mind.
  • Petting Zoo People: A very fluffy wolf man.

Popular DJ

Voiced by: Junya Inaba

An elusive Transient from another world with the black fur of a hyena. He's a popular DJ hired to play in nightclubs all over Tokyo. This mysterious man travels from guild to guild, including the 3 top guilds of Ikebukuro, Roppongi, and Aoyama, always claiming that the game should be more fun. His influence is so great that the power balance of the three top guilds of Tokyo can greatly shift around him.

Based on the eponymous chaos deity from Lovecraftian Mythos.


  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: As revealed in Summonpedia 2, Nyarl’s true form as that of a Living Shadow with dozen of eyes and even more withered looking hands crawling out of Full-Metal Alchemist-Style-Truth portals, complete with giant eyes in the middle of them, around his “body”. That’s not even going his smile where he shows off his teeth!
  • Artifact of Doom: His sacred artifact allows him to warp space. This was used twice in Chapter 4 as to teleport the protagonist to certain locations.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: When Maria confronts Nyarl in Chapter 7, he confirms that he was the one who let the shadows invade the Missionaries. Nyarl expects her to hate him, but is left speechless when Maria forgives him.

  • Gratuitous English: His in-game lines.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: Which side of a conflict he helps changes with his whims, though he does tend to end up on the same side as the player when things start getting 'really' bad.
  • It Amused Me: His motivation in the things that he does, regardless of the outcomes boils down to this.
  • Me's a Crowd: He can make convincing copies of himself. These copies are, for all intents and purposes, actual physical objects, unlike Managarmr's copies which are merely illusory after-images.

  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has blue fur and a light green mane.

His emerald bejeweled Decorative Sword Sacred Artifact secrets holy oil. He rubs it all over his body to engage in Turkish oil wrestling. This Sacred Artifact was once possessed by an ancient monarch and anointing one's body with its oil is a symbol of the divine right to rule.


  • Badass Grandpa
  • Badass in Distress: For the majority of Chapter 4, Nyarlathotep has kidnapped Arsalan and locked him in a dungeon, causing a schism in the ranks of the Aoyama Guild. Notably, this isn't the first time Arsalan has been imprisoned: he says it's happened more than a hundred times before.
  • Boisterous Bruiser

  • Perpetually Shiny Bodies: It's because of the oil he anoints himself with.

     Roppongi Tycoons note  

Ophion

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ophion_3star_full.png
Head of Roppongi

Voiced by: Jōji Nakata

Click here to see spoilers 

An incredibly arrogant Summon and self-proclaimed creator of the Olympus parallel world. He's an ancient Creator Dragon that stubbornly believes wisdom acquired with age to be the most important attribute. He is one of the Roppongi Tycoons' Executive Members and shows influence over various of the guild's branches. He doesn't like to sully his hands fighting against inferior enemies, instead he prefers to sweep them by breathing light from his mouth.

His Sacred Artifact is the egg around his neck, allowing him to give birth to infinite creatures hailing from the world of Olympus.


  • Bad Boss: At one point when sending orders to Kirito and Barguest, Ophion struck the former because he doesn't bow down in respect after receiving the order.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: He states that he lost his left fang in a fight with his spouse, and even says that while they were together, these moments were quite frequent when his ego got out of hand. He elaborates in Ikebukuro Christmas Carol, in the midst of fighting the main character, that he considers fighting an important part of ascertaining their love for each other.
  • Cosmic Egg: Essentially the gist of his Sacred Artifact.
  • Creating Life: In a way: His Sacred Artifact allows him to create living beings that look so much like the real deal, only vanishing when they are killed.
  • How the Mighty Have Fallen: He does not appreciate having his power subjugated by the rules of the game, to the point that he threatens to hunt down the GMs for dragging him into a game system that neuters his powers.
  • Older Than They Look: It's hard to guess his exact age, being a dragon and all, but he claims that he is thousands of years old.
  • Physical God: Was the creator of his world of Olympus, alongside his wife, Eurynome. Though he's weakened over the past millennia with age and upon being summoned to Tokyo, he's still quite powerful, and has the ego to back it up. This comes to a head when Ophion's younger form is created in the climax of chapter 6, who very quickly proves that he most certainly could back up his blustering when push comes to shove.
  • Put Them All Out of My Misery: Ophion became resentful and despised the world after it cast out his wife, Eurynome, and has spent the past few millennia stewing in that hatred, lashing out at the world as a form of retribution. This finally boils over in Chapter 6, when Ophion sends hundreds of wyverns, maids, and mobsters into the streets of Tokyo and turns the whole place into a warzone.

  • Noblewoman's Laugh: She notably laughs like this quite often.
  • Playing with Fire: She can also summon and control flames. During her battle with Ophion in chapter 6, Hakumen's full power is shown when each of her nine tails became massive firestorms against Ophion.
  • Victoria's Secret Compartment: She hides a keyring in her bosom.
  • Whip It Good: Her Sacred Artifact is a cat o' nine tails (renamed "fox o' nine tails" in her 4-star card). She frequently uses it on her servants, particularly her bodyguard Xolotl, when she is displeased.

He's now a proud shut-in to be found in the VIP room located underground in the massive Tokyo Casino. He may be a NEET now, but he's still the strongest of the strong. The immense power of his Rule and Sacred Artifact make him a peerless player in Western Tokyo. That said, he's got enough assets to let him live out his days without ever working again. He never goes outside if he can avoid it, and is thus surprisingly welcoming of anyone who visit and cite themselves as friends.

Based on the eponymous sloth deity from Lovecraftian Mythos.


  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Technically a high-ranking executive of the Roppongi Guild, and has the skills to show for it. He just prefers to live in seclusion without getting involved.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: A very powerful Transient who only wants to lounge around.
  • Did You Just Romance Cthulhu?: As with most characters in the game, the player can flirt with Tsathoggua.
  • Living MacGuffin: He is a person of significant interest by both Ophion and Claude, and possibly more.
  • NEET: Embodies the trope to such an extent that it is his actual in-game title.
  • Verbal Tic: Tends to speak very slowly, and ends a lot of his sentences with "de aru," a Japanese phrase used as an older, more formal variation of "desu," tying into his original identity as a powerful ruler. The English translation localized this as "yeah?", which doesn't necessarily carry the same meaning.

Lucifuge

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lucifuge_3star_full.png
Prime Minister of Gehenna

Voiced by: Takashi Yonezawa

A Transient from the other world of Gehenna and a top executive member of the Roppongi Tycoons. Successor to the prime minister of Gehenna, he bears the title of He Who Flees the Light, to contrast that of the fallen Lightbringer who descended from Eden to Gehenna, once the Angel of Light. Spoiled throughout his life, Lucifuge is extremely ignorant of the ways of the world, and as such, his actions do not come from a place of malice. Rather, he has good intentions, but it is those intentions that cause his actions to spiral into disaster after disaster.


  • Actually a Doombot: As Toji found out the hard way, Lucifuge’s no fool when it comes to combat. Knowing that Toji’s a close-range fighter, Lucifuge had purposefully crafted an identical clone of himself using his homunculi and sent ahead of him. When Toji attempted to cut down the person he thought was Lucifuge, the clone exploded into their poisonous components as payback, while the real Lucifuge simply stepped out and resume combat. This overlaps with Combat Pragmatist
  • Affably Evil: Despite his prior occupation as the Prime Minister of Hell/Gehenna and Lucifer’s right hand man, Lucifuge wholly believes in complete loyalty to those he would call “friend” and demonstrating respect to those you would consider your superior.
  • Affectionate Nickname: He often prefers to refers to the Player as “Shining One” or “Morning Star”, the old titles of his former master, Lucifer.
  • Combat Tentacles: His homunculi can do this to extend their reach on unsuspecting victims. As Melusine unfortunately had the pleasure to discover.
  • Improbable Weapon User: His sacred artifact takes the shape of a goblet where he holds his poisonous homunculi. During the winter, it seemingly changes shape into a mason to help keep his homunculi from the cold.
  • Master Poisoner: A variant. Lucifuge’s powers are a particularly nasty combination of effects that could only be called an adaptive venom. What makes Lucifuge’s poisons so deadly is that he always crafts a specific poison for a specific enemy. The poison targets the specific biological make up of their selected victims to efficiently and effectively incapacitate or kill them and in extreme cases, it can use that information to target and wipe out the victim’s whole specie. That’s not getting into the fact that his poisons are living organic masses that can spontaneously change their shape to meet his needs.
  • Shapeshifting: One of the most useful and deadly application of his sacred artifact. Lucifuge’s homunculi can flawlessly assume the shape of anyone and anything he wants. This allows him to effortlessly ambush his enemies with his homunculi, such as when Melusine had believed Toji to have destroyed his clone when in reality they had simply dissolved and blended in with Toji’s clothes, awaiting their master’s command to strike her when she least suspect it.
  • The Power of Friendship: Would you believe that a demon as powerful and influential as Lucifuge still believes in having genuine friendships? Old Ophion sure doesn't


Licht

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/licht_3star_full.png
Speaker of the Roppongi Guild

Voiced by: 下総一薫

Master of the Roppongi Guild (in name only). He is half-Japanese and half-German. He is passionate about dressing in military costume and mixes German words into his everyday speech. Though not particularly talented, he loves to draw. He belongs to his high school's art club and respects any who are skilled artists.


  • Beware the Silly Ones: Acts the fool in front of the other high-ranking executives vying for power, so that they don't register him as a threat when he eventually makes his move.
  • The Chessmaster: He certainly tries, and manages to get far before one slip (involving Melusine and the player being endangered in a Chapter 6 cutscene) causes all his plans to fall apart.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In addition to being The Starscream to Ophion and a potential Big Bad Wannabe. He initially saw the player as little more than another unwitting pawn in his grand scheme. He immediately does a 180 on his opinion of the player upon overhearing their compliments on his artwork just before the mentioned cutscene while in a conversation with Melusine. Considering Melusine was the only other person to ever think positively of him before this, this ultimately causes him to play his hand early in order to save them both, fully aware that Ophion and the Roppongi guild will quickly learn about his treachery in doing so. Licth has been a good friend and ally to the player since, and he's seemingly abandoned his ambitions after Chapter 6 in favor of their friendship.
  • More Dakka: His preferred method of attack is using tanks and heavy artillery that he got by using his Sacred Artifact to steal them.
  • Puppet King: What the other executives of the guild see him as, but he decides to use it to further his own goal.

Melusine

Roppongi Guild Maid

Voiced by: Yui Toita

A dragon in maid form who works for the Roppongi Guild. Once queen of a castle back in her home world where she was renowned of her beauty, wealth, and power both in political sway and military might. However, she was never blessed with love, and she wandered away from her territory in search of it. In the end; she suffered rejection and the mental trauma that comes of such hurt. When she could wander no more, she found herself in Tokyo where she met the Roppongi Guild master whom she came to idolize. She would do absolutely anything for this man she calls Master. She and the butler of the Ikebukuro Guild are sworn enemies, calling each other such harsh names as Codependent Buffoon and Nuclear Landmine. They have a habit of trying to kill each other every chance they get while insults fly about like curses.



Xolotl

Bodyguard

Voiced by: Rikiya Koyama

Working as a bodyguard in the elitist city of Roppongi, he may look scary but he is actually a cowardly crybaby. He severely regrets having abandoned his friends in the past and took this occupation of bodyguard in order to train himself, mind and soul. He is contracted to the Tokyo Casino owner but his mistress has gone AWOL, leaving him to sulk while continuing his work at the Roppongi Guild. As a loyal guard dog, he detests anyone who is hostile toward his mistress but because he is such a coward, he would never confront such an offender.


  • Green Thumb: His Sacred Artifact allows him so let plant-life grow rapidly into vines and defensive walls of greenery.
  • Nervous Wreck: He is very easily startled.
  • Undying Loyalty: For Hakumen. His only wish during the Roppongi Guild crisis is to locate her.

Gyumao

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fg_gyuumaou01.png
Venture Capitalist

Voiced by: Creator/Katsuhisa Hoki

A large Bull Transient who is the head of a venture company in Tokyo. Gyumao may seem intimidating at first, but he is actually quite competent and supportive, and holds his company staff in high regard.


  • Ambiguously Brown: Gyumao is a big fan of tanning, and states that he was originally a white ox before tanning himself. Can his tanning lotion darken fur? We simply don't know.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: He's strong and noisy!
  • Bull Seeing Red: Subverted. During his event, Gyumao alludes to his fiery, uncontrollable temper. It turns out it was simply part of an elaborate act the staff puts on to test a new attraction in the resort.
  • Defeat Means Respect: Originally, Gyumao was the antagonistic, tyrranical Demon King in his home world, Horai. After being defeated by a team of travelling monks, a humbled Gyumao respectfully stopped his reign to simply become a businessman.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Overlaps with Trick Boss: Gyumao is built up to be the Big Bad of the Desert Journey event; however, after defeating him, he reveals that the entire journey and even the final fight against him was all a test run of a new tourist attraction for the resort, and he was only acting as a bad guy. The real final boss turns out to be a Shadow of Seth, conjured from Ash's mind, who starts to trap the entire resort in an overworld shift after the gang defeats Gyumao.
  • Fanservice: One of Gyumao's alternate skins shows him in nothing but a speedo and sandles. In addition, during his debut event and in his post-event bonus scene, you have the option of commentating on and/or feeling up his highly-developed muscles. He loves it.
  • Genius Bruiser: He may not be a scientific genius, but Gyumao built his company from the ground up and has successfully run said company for years. In addition, by collaborating with Hakumen he has conceptualized, produced, and maintained a gigantic, extravagant theme park resort. That takes some serious smarts to pull all of that off.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: Similar to Ho Yay. Gyumaos's post-event bonus scene contains frequent allusions to...certain sexual undertones, some of which that player might not get right away.
  • Gratuitous English: Injects English into practically every one of his quotes. "Commitment! Damage! Solution!"
  • Honest Corporate Executive: Gyumao is the head of his business, but is refreshingly supportive. During a freak accident in his debut event's theme park, his very first concern is to make sure that the customers who are currently in the theme park are undisturbed by the commotion and remain calm. When confronted with the event's main adversary, he doesn't hesitate to support the Protagonist, gives thoughtful advice to the Protagonist and Seth to encourage them and ward off the antagonist, and continues to support the party while giving orders to his staff to help contain the event's main plot problem as best he can. Additionally, in beginning of the Seaside Fashionista event, Gyumao comes up with a challenge for Arachne, the event's debut character, to prove her worth as a fashion designer. Gyumao gives Arachne keen insight on how she can improve her work, and after Arachne is out of earshot it becomes clear that Gyumao really set the challenge up to not only teach Arachne valuable life lessons about recongizing one's own limits and cababilities, and the importance of respecting client needs, but also to genuinely help spur Arachne's growth as a fashion designer and to help her reach new heights.
  • Ho Yay: Gyumaos's post-event bonus scene is saturated with it, to the point that listing all instances would warrant a separate page itself.
  • Large Ham: See Gratuitous English above.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: Gyumao has a very impressive physique and is stated to be very strong. He also exercises daily.
  • Petting Zoo People: Gyumao is, visually, a large bull-man in a suit.
  • Playing with Fire: Fire-type unit. In his higher rarity illustration, his business suit bursts into flame and his horns burn sizzling hot.
  • Power Limiter: Gyumao can only tap into a fraction of his former power through his Sacred Artifact, his horns. Even with that miniscule amount of power, he is stated to still have enough strength to "destroy a small town if he so desired."
  • Size Shifter: Gyumao's true form is stated to be that of a "massive bull that reaches all the way into the clouds." He can change his size at will, and will sometimes show up to his business meetings giant-sized just to make a strong first impression!
  • You're Drinking Breast Milk: The two main products that Gyumao offers you in his post-event bonus scene are homemade sun lotion and a personalized sundae dessert. They are both made from "high-grade milk produced in-house." Additionally, in the Seaside Fashionista event, one of the refreshments that Gyumao provides his guests is... "hot milk." Gyumao is a bull. (Keep in mind, this is only implied at best.)

     Kabukicho Outlaws note  

Tetsuya

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tetsuya_3star_full.png
Kabukicho Messenger

Voiced by:Daisuke Tōyama

The immortal gambler based in Shinjuku Kabukicho. He is a major figure of the Outlaws and involved with its formation. He has no considerations for his own safety whether it comes to betting or disputes, and he specializes in drawn out battles of attrition. Tetsuya doesn't get on well with gamblers who believe that "betting is about a moment of fortune and a flash of ruin." He used to be friends with Kengo Takabushi, but after certain circumstances happened they parted ways. He's secretly superstitious, so he hates the idea of his business rival also located in Kabukicho infecting him with his poverty and misfortune.


  • Arch-Enemy: Played for Laugh. Nomad is this to him, as the tiger detective's constant and expensive habit of accidentally burning off his clothes when using his super-speed sacred artifact has made Tetsuya label him a god of poverty and now tries to actively avoid Nomad in superstitious fear.
  • Genius Bruiser: Though he has plenty of brains and brawn, he prefers using the former. The player can compliment him on that.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal: His sacred artifact grants him a healing factor that essentially makes him immortal, making it a chore to deal any sort of lasting damage to him.
  • I Will Punish Your Friend for Your Failure: Takes the Protagonist's friends hostage in order to get him to broker a truce between Kabukicho and Roppongi.
  • Knife Nut: Can be seen with his sacred artifact, huge knife in his 4-star skin.
  • Victory by Endurance: His prefer method of combat, as his knife makes it so he can generally out-last his opponent's stamina.

Tetsuox

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tetsugyuu_3star_full.png
Wild Child of Kabukicho

Voiced by: Mitsuaki Kanuka

The Shinjuku Kabukicho guild where the strays gather, Outlaws. Tetsuox is the self proclaimed Transient head of the shock troops whose herculean strength is acknowledged by all around him. However, he also is self-admittedly not the type to use his head much, so he tends to entrust big decisions and just about everything else beneath that to the master he accepts. That would be one thing, but he has a peculiar opinion of life and death. What makes him happy about battlefields is because that is where he can die along with the superior he respects. So if anyone summons him and ends up garnering his respect, their relationship after will certainly be filled with many hardships.



Suzuka

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/suzuka_3star_full.png
Kabukicho Schoolgirl

Voiced by: Satsuki Yukino

A Transient hailing from the Land of Wa. She belongs to the Kabukicho Outlaws, the guild where ruffians and directionless drifters gather. Suzuka looks after the elder yakuza boss associated with the guild, which has recently been invaded by a Transient mafia from elsewhere to the point of near collapse. Because of these events, there are many times she considers Kabukicho first with unceasing trouble occurring from those who come into town without permission. The three swords she holds are her Sacred Artifact, and if she uses all of them she may be able to kill immortal opponents. She holds a feeling of mixed familiarity and goodwill towards people who tend to be misunderstood by their appearance or have image-character impression gaps.


  • Bodyguard Babes: Serves as a bodyguard for the Outlaws advisor, the yakuza tanuki Gyobu.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: She comes off as extremely hostile and aggressive, but when the hero gets closer to her it becomes clear she is merely very protective of her guild's territory because most of their members are outcasts with nowhere else to call home.
  • Sweet Tooth: Secretly enjoys sweets.
  • Tsundere
  • Weapon of Choice: Katanas, and three of them to boot.

An oni Transient from the Land of Wa. In his previous part time job at a mine, he met Shuten, who he sees as the ringleader of the oni. He looks up to Shuten as the epitome of chivalry, his role model, and also someone so powerful that he has the ability to control all of Tokyo should he choose. He is mortified by the current lack of progress Shuten has made in taking over Tokyo, focusing instead on playing baseball. When he fully releases his oni powers, his appearance will assume a female form, due to a past curse.



Marchosias

Knight of Kabukicho

Voiced by: Masato Ushiki

In the back alleys of the downtown Shinjuku area, greed and treachery run amok. There, amid the trash and waste of the sleepless city, screams and coquetry intertwine. Just as this demonic knight was summoned from a placed called Hell, he witnessed a man receive a fatal blow while trying to protect a young child. It was obvious his life would soon be extinguished and so the man made a pact with the demon, but instead of wishing for his life to be saved, he bartered for the child be protected.



Shino (Yatsufusa)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shino_3.png
Peony-Branded Swordsman

Voiced by: Kappei Yamaguchi

A skilled samurai who bears an extreme resemblance to Moritaka. He is savage in battle using the ability of his Sacred Artifact, which allows him to target an opponent's neck without fail, to behead enemies and he frequently mocks his enemies for losing to a him as he considers himself lowly. Contrary to how he acts in combat Shino is usually polite in conversation and is generally melancholic and brooding. He joins the Outlaws who offer him their hospitality when he wanders into their territory. His true identity is Yatsufusa, the spiritual father of Moritaka and Tadatomo. When he died his soul split into 8 which were reborn into the Canine Warriors. The remains were summoned to Tokyo as a mirror image of Moritaka.


  • Big Damn Heroes: When Moritaka is exhausted and outmatched against several Shadows Shino steps in and takes them out before they kill Moritaka.
    • In chapter 8 when the protagonist and Moritaka attempt to retreat from the Genocider's attacks Shino arrives with Suzuka and Marchosias to rescue and back them up.
  • Cool Hat: Sports a straw hat in one of his alternate skins with black swirls and protrusions for his ears.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite being a Shadow he is unlike most of the others showing no ill will towards the still living.
  • Foil: He is one for Moritaka. Appearance wise Moritaka has short hair and Shino has an extremely long Samurai Ponytail and their scars and peony brand are mirrored horizontally. Whereas Moritaka is a novice samurai Shino is very skilled. Moritaka was raised in a loving family of some prestige, whereas Shino fought his way from poverty with martial prowess alone.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Before he was called to Tokyo he attempted to defend his companion from being shot by Taking the Bullet. It doesn't work, as the bullet penetrates through Shino and kills both him and his companion.

    • In Chapter 8 he defends Moritaka and Tadatomo from the core of Azathoth's world when it explodes by using himself as a shield.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: He frequently refers to himself as things like mangy cur or filthy dog.
  • Identical Stranger: He looks very similar to Moritaka long hair and red eyes aside.
  • Insecure Love Interest: He is extremely reluctant to accept gifts from the Protagonist in the Valentine Festa event. He insists that handing out gifts to a dog like himself is being too kind. He also initially objects to the player hugging him in the same event although he returns it quickly.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: His Weapon of Choice, adorned with a skull.
  • Life Drain: One of his skills in battle allows his to regain health for each enemy he hits. He does not actually have this ability in story however.
  • Mentor Occupational Hazard: He acts as Moritaka and Tadatomo's teacher in Chapter 7 and 8 and dies protecting them.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: He has a tuft of hair which almost always blocks his left eye. His eye can only be seen in his regular 5* as the point of view is below Shino.
  • Off with His Head!: As a result of his Rule which allows him to target and hit his opponent's neck without fail.
  • One-Hit Kill: His preferred method of killing is to behead opponents as fast as possible.
  • Samurai Ponytail
  • Sarashi: He wears one in all of his skins.
  • Say My Name: Moritaka and Tadatomo scream out his true name, Yatsufusa, right as he moves to shield them from the exploding core of Azathoth's world.
  • Slasher Smile: Has quite the bloodthirsty looking smile in his regular 5*.
  • Stern Teacher: He takes it upon himself to teach Moritaka, in his own words, about the meaning of living and dying on the battlefield. He also frequently berates Moritaka for being unskilled and rarely compliments him.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: He regularly points out flaws that Moritaka and Tadatomo have such as telling Tadatomo that his swordplay is sloppy and that he relies too much on his fire arts.
  • Uptown Girl: Unlike Shino, his past lover was of high status.

Tsukuyomi

Kabukicho Student Host

Voiced by: Hiroaki Hirata

Shinjuku Academy third year student and Transient from the world of Takamagahara. He behaves inscrutably and has a constant languid smile. He's known as the Night King of the Kabukicho Outlaws and is a charismatic student host. As the guild master's advisor he's known as the boss of the nightless city, but he sleeps all day so he's not at all reliable. As a first class host as someone who "chose to be the same as someone else's shadow" he is severe with those who constantly cause disturbances with love affairs.


  • Bishōnen: As of his introduction into this game, he's one of the very few adult male characters not drawn in some version of a bara style. His artist is even a notable yaoi mangaka.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Although referred to on a few occasions by his fellow guildmates, he's only shown up briefly in two scenes, the first during the Roppongi Invasion in Ch.7, which was entirely a Battle Discretion Shot, and then in Ch.9, where he meets with Shiro and Kengo and explains the purpose and uses of the World Pillars.

Gyobu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gyobu_3.png
Kabukicho's Font of Wisdom

Voiced by: Kappei Yamaguchi

A Transient originating from the Land of Wa, and counselor to the Kabukicho Outlaws, he is a Tanuki who could easily have lived for hundreds of years but has the ability to freely change his outward appearance, making it impossible to guess his age by looks alone. His Sacred Artifact is a small mallet that can call forth his 808 underlings. He places great importance on chivalry, and can truthfully declare that he would die for the sake of his followers in the spirit of being a true leader. Valuing honor and empathy, he is greatly loved for being unable to turn away those who are suffering.


  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Deliberately invokes this during his festival date, jokingly dangling two big water balloon yoyos, reminiscent of a famous attribute of tanuki.
  • Minion Master: Summons tanuki underlings in battle. Though they're not directly stated to be his sons, he treats them as such, and his mythological inspiration was a tanuki with 808 children.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: The most reasonable person on the Outlaws side during the summer festival event: whereas Suzuka was absolutely uncompromising about her refusal to work with the police or open the festival to outsiders, Gyobu was most interested in resolving the conflict as peacefully as possible.
  • Yakuza: Has all the speech patterns and mannerisms, complete with his very own crew of underlings and a bodyguard.

A Ninja Named Vengeance

Voiced by: Kentarō Itō

A canine Transient from the Land of Wa. After witnessing his father's death, he was summoned to Tokyo and began work as a ninja informant for the Akasaka Agents guild to amass enough money to find the person that killed his father. Underneath the seemingly cold front he puts up, he seeks to find a lord worthy of his loyalty. He also values those that put loyalty above all else.


  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has a rather large burn scar that encompasses the upper half of his face.
  • Highly Visible Ninja: Downplayed and played for laugh. He's usually a stealth expert as be fitting his background. But when you add the Player into the picture, he quickly makes himself known to wait on us hand and foot.
  • Necromancer: A rather horrifying application of his sacred artifact. The scroll apparently contains ninjutsus that can reanimate enemy corpses as flaming zombies at the user's command.
  • Playing with Fire: Whenever he unravels his Scroll Sacred Artifact, he is about to use fiery techniques.
  • Stock Ninja Weaponry: Is shown to use kunai and short swords in his 3-star skin.
  • Undying Loyalty: To the protagonist, after awakening the memories of a previous owner within his scroll Sacred Artifact.

Ose

Original Form

Click to see his younger appearance 

Transient from the world of Gehenna. In this Tokyo, he's a capable spy who is a part of the mysterious organization called the Agents. His code name is 057 (Fifty-Seven). As a master of disguise he sometimes appears as a child and sometimes as an adult. With his natural high specs he can easily accomplish any job no matter how difficult, so without any thrills he seems bored. Perhaps because of that he's developed a habit of putting moves on kind people on his opponents' side during missions.


  • Bling of War: His Grand President skin has him don his old uniform which features a fur-collared cape, an officer’s cap, and medals of honor.
  • Cats Are Mean: He was perfectly willing to give a detailed report of Shuichi’s reaction of utter despair if Duo had allowed Ose to break the news to his older brother that Duo didn’t need him anymore.
  • Cool Crown: The shape of his Sacred Artifact.
  • Evil Gloating: He really got a kick out of Shuichi’s utter despair at finally realizing Duo has betrayed his brother for the Pillars and was playing Shuichi like a fiddle the whole game.
  • Impossibly Cool Clothes: He typically wears a white tuxedo with a rose corsage, black bow-tie and dress shoes, and a maroon dress shirt. He can trade this in for his old military uniform, which further ups the coolness.
  • Kick the Dog: He really enjoyed rubbing in the fact that Shuichi may have known all along his brother, Duo, wasn’t kidnapped but rather defected over to the Pillars.
  • Master of Illusion: He was able to completely convince Tadatomo that a ninja log was actually Kotarou when the former attempted a mutual kill technique.
  • Mind-Control Device: How his crown really works. As a nod to his description in the Ars Goetia, Ose’s crown has the power to convince and deceive not just his targets but also the world’s cognition into believing his illusions. With it, Ose, in an Alice disguise, was able to fool even Jambavan’s own sacred artifact, preventing Jambavan from having the strength to fight back when Ose drugged him. Compare to his Ars Goetia counterpart, Ose’s powers are Up to Eleven here.
  • Perception Filter: The most common use of his crown. This allows Ose to move undetected within other organizations and gather information by becoming one of their members.
  • The Gunslinger: He is typically seen with a golden 9mm Parabellum equipped with a muzzle.
  • Master of Disguise: The power of his Sacred Artifact.
  • A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing: Deliberately changes his form to that of a child as to seem less intimidating when approaching Alice and Jambavan. He remains in that form for the remainder of Chapter 6.

     Otemachi Genocidersnote  

Arc

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arc_3.png
Chain-Wielder of Otemachi

Voiced by: Mariya Ise

Guild Master of the Otemachi Genociders, located in the abandoned headquarters of a cult in Chiyoda Ward. The stigma they carry means nothing to a group of those intent on ending all life. Of both French and Japanese descent, they conceal a violent, burning passion within. They care deeply for those they call their family, and they love seeing them and hearing their voices above all else.


  • Ambiguous Gender: As a tie in to their historical inspiration, Arc’s design toes the line between feminine and masculine. While Arc wears a male uniform, their build is something their artist, Bom Bom, typically uses for female characters. Word of God says Arc is nonbinary, however, as their bio lists their gender as “N/A” and refers to them with gender-neutral pronouns.
  • Back from the Dead: Shirou managed to use Yog’s powers to bring Arc back from the dead by turning back their time after they took a knife meant for Babalon.
  • Berserk Button: Touch their family and you. Will. Burn!
  • But Not Too Foreign: They’re half French and half Japanese.
  • Chain Pain: Their Sacred Artifact takes the form of chains that they can telekinetically manipulate and multiply to bind and burn their opponents. They’re capable of maintaining the binding on dozens of victims and could even restrain someone as strong as an enraged Macan.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Arc, along with all their classmates and the students at their school, were used as guinea pigs for experiments with the App, leaving only themself, the boy that became Marchosias’ charge, and Azathoth’s Summoner's physical body alive.
  • Family of Choice: Babalon and Surtr now act as their parental figures, while Azathoth is like a little brother to them.
  • Jeanne d'Archétype: And even in this case, inheriting her powers and role. The actual Joan of Arc is summoned as an Exception using Arc’s connections to her.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: Babalon, Azathoth, and Surtr are this to them and vice-versa.
  • Playing with Fire: Their in-game element, while their chains latch onto their targets and burn them based on the victim's perception of how sinful their own lives have been.
  • Power Source: The chains bind and power themselves using the guilt and regrets of Arc’s enemies. Once they make contact, breaking the physical chains is meaningless unless the target can also overcome their personal traumas and regrets.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Again, do not threaten their family or else!
  • Sole Survivor: Or at least, the only one left physically conscious and active after the horrific summoning experiment at their now-abandoned school.
  • Taking the Bullet: Shielded a weakened Babalon from Kirito when he turns on them. Thankfully they got better.
  • The Caretaker: Acts as this for Azathoth when not out on missions due to Azathoth’s human body being catatonic and Azathoth himself being a Cloudcuckoolander.

She doesn't try to hide her disgust and ridicule of men who are violent, oppressive, and favored by divine doctrine, confronting them with arrogance. She has turned her back on all things considered to hold value in this world and lives in depravity and degeneracy. Yet, in contrast, she extends her unconditional love and benevolence to those who are ridiculed and rejected from society as tainted.


  • Action Mom: Harm her children and she will sic Therion on you without hesitation.
  • Affably Evil: A cool, motherly type, trying to go about her everyday life with her weird, rag-tag Family of Choice. She’s also plotting to start an apocalypse with said family…
  • Attack Animal: Therion, her familiar, serves as this. It typically hides in a space in her hair, although its silhouette can be clearly seen in her 3-star art.
  • Fan of Underdog: She loves to side with weaker factions, such as the downtrodden masses or people who have been humiliated or defeated. In fact, she offers to help Hakumen, normally a very rich, powerful and influential Roppongi executive, after the latter suffers crushing defeat from Ophion and Lucifuge who invade her casino.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Realizing she loves Arc like her own child, Babalon joins the fight against the Exceptions she helped unleash. She later sacrifices herself alongside Surtr to buy time for the Summoners and their allies to escape from the Pillars. Overlaps with Love Redeems.
  • Heel Realization: Arc’s death finally made her realize the thing she really wanted most, a child to call her own, was in front of her and she had just thrown them away for selfish vengeance. Thankfully, Arc’s revival allowed her to make amends.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: She, Surtr, and Azathoth threw themselves at Michael and the Pillars to buy the Summoners time to retreat.
  • Humble Goal: All she ever really wanted was to raise a child of her own.
  • I Have Many Names: Babalon and/or Harlot. Though it's primarily a name change due to localization, Babalon does allude to the fact that many men simply refer to her as a harlot, looking down upon her as a vile woman. Of course, that’s not even getting into the implications of her past. From the narration in Chapter 8, it’s highly implied that Babalon’s original identity in Eden was that of the very first woman, Lilith. Her rebellion against the enslavement of women in Eden led to her banishment. What happened after that isn’t clear: the narration does not explicitly say whether or not the current “her” is still the original Lilith or that her memories were simply continuously reincarnated with her Sacred Artifact, each time inherited by another unfortunate woman who was scorned by society and abused by the men around them.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Twice. The first and non-fatal incident was to provoke Arc into attacking the protagonist in order to trigger an Exception, while the second and very fatal incident was courtesy of Michael and his angels.
  • Lethal Chef: Her appearance in Valentines Festa reveals that she is terrible at cooking, to the point of once putting ten times the dictated amount of sugar into a cake. Surtr refuses to let her cook for this reason.
  • Mama Bear: In a way. She is shown to care deeply about those who are outcasts in society and taken advantage of, as shown with her sympathy with Ifrit in Chapter 5. She goes so far as to call Kirito her "Unlovable Child" as well.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Arc’s sacrifice to protect her made her realize she had just thrown away a loving child to sate her need for vengeance.
  • Parental Substitute: Her dead Summoner’s last request was for Babalon to look after Arc.
  • Pet the Dog: She genuinely follows through with her Summoner’s last request to look after Arc like a mother, treating them as lovingly as if they were one of her own.
  • Rebellious Spirit: Her agenda includes uniting the downtrodden outcasts against those with authority.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: It seems to be her plan to take revenge on all those who abuse and take advantage of the weak. Her revenge is mainly directed toward Eden for its cruel enslavement of women and their treatment of the child she was never able to birth. Branded and banished, Babalon was forced to wander from world to world, until finding herself in Tokyo where she found the necessary tools to finally have her revenge from the Fujimi Academy's illegal research.
  • Tears of Remorse: Cries as she cradle Arc’s lifeless body. Thankfully, things turn around.
  • The Cynic: She feels the world’s nothing but a hellhole playground for men to abuse and exploit those with less power than they do. Justified, considering the world that she originated from, Eden, had a System in place where men were granted almost limitless rights and privileges, while the women were less than livestock.
  • The Paralyzer: Her grail does have a “stun” setting which causes it release a debilitating gas around the area, paralyzing anyone who breathes it in. Babalon typically avoids using this because siccing Therion on her enemies is so much easier, but she will quickly relent and use the non-violent option if Arc is within ear shot.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Her stated goal is seemingly benevolent, but she's willing to torture, kidnap and get civilians injured along the way.

Surtr

Burning Jotunn

Voiced by: Kenta Miyake

A Transient from the world of Yggdrasil and member of the Otemachi Genociders. In addition to his flaming Sword Sacred Artifact which can burn the safeguards of worlds to ash, he also wears a black Helmet Sacred Artifact which etches fear into his target. In memory of his perished children, he will never remove the helm. Any who express their flame-like existence are beloved as his children.


  • Adorkable: Just look at his Valentine’s Day variant. He not only bakes sweets for the main characters and his fellow guild members, but also asks the player (via voicelines) point-blank if they think it’s delicious. When he’s excited, the flames around his helmet even morph into hearts, while his usually ominous red eyes arch in pure delight.
  • A Father to His Men: Takes up a very paternal role to Azathoth and Arc, and thinks of the giants and Shadows that he's led as his children.
  • BFS: His sword, Laevatien, is almost as tall as he is! Overlaps with Flaming Sword.
  • Black Knight: His overall design brings to mind this idea.
  • Chef of Iron: He may be fatherly and warm to his family, but remember that dad’s still a mighty Jotuun with complete control over flames and can wreck anyone that messes with him or his family.
  • Hunk: The logical conclusion when you combine that voice with that build, and damn is he hot.
  • Innocent Fanservice Guy: It’s clear Surtr has absolutely no idea how sexy he looks in only an apron; the only reason for it was just because he didn’t want the clothes Arc picked out for him to get dirty when he baked.
  • Mook Maker: Besides storing memories of pain and tragedy from previous timelines, his black helmet sacred artifact can also be use to summon facsimiles of his dead Jotuun children as Shadow Mobs.
  • Mr. Fanservice: While his initial release was already pretty raunchy, as he wore what was basically male bikini armor, his Valentine’s variant took it even further with a naked apron sprite.
  • Mundane Utility: Implied to use his mastery over fire to bake. It also help that his complete immunity to heat and flames also allows to him to bake while only wearing an apron.
  • Naked Apron: When the man looks like that and enjoys baking and cooking, in a game like this, this was an inevitability. He claims this is all to show off the power of a Jotuun and to keep the clothes Arc picked out for him clean.
  • Papa Wolf: Mess with any of his kids, and he’ll skewer you.
  • Playing with Fire: As a fire giant from Yggdrasil, this is a given. This is his true element as per his legend, but the memories and pain in his helmet artifact usually suppresses it and instead grants him the Infernal attribute. His Valentine’s alt, however, regains his fire attribute.
  • Real Men Cook: As shown in his Valentines Festa appearance, he is very good at cooking and baking, and is known to frequently cook for his fellow guild members.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Subverted, Surtr’s not evil, so much as he’s duty-bound to those he considered family like with Arc and Babalon. He will do whatever it takes to help his loved ones achieve their goals, and if that means potentially starting an apocalypse, so be it.
  • Supreme Chef: Just look at all those cakes and pastries in his Valentine’s alt.
  • Vapor Wear: The man wears partial armor with a black thong and some very thin chest straps into battle. Averted with his Valentine’s alt... at first: Naked Apron quickly ensued.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: The only thing on his torso are some chest straps that only help to emphasize just how stacked his chest is.


Azathoth

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/azathoth_3star_full.png
Hardcore Gamer

Voiced by: Mayumi Tanaka

The pillar of the world of the Old Ones, who created not only the creators of the other worlds, but also the lives that dwell within, his existence is no longer recognizable as a life form. Hence, after summoning, he is not even able to communicate with others without the cooperation of his Summoner. Furthermore, he can only act upon that Summoner's wishes. Member of the Otemachi Genociders.

Based on the eponymous deity from Lovecraftian Mythos.


  • Almighty Idiot: Literally. Azathoth is the creator of the world of The Old Ones, including all the transients you've met from that world. Even so, he has no memory of this, doesn't recognize any of the Old Ones he comes into contact with, and has the mentality of a child concerned with only a very few things in life.
  • Adorable Abomination
  • Doesn't Know Their Own Child: This with literally all of the Old Ones. He created them, and even before the cataclysm that destroyed the world of the Old Ones, he had no awareness of their existence. This has spawned some strong Angst in his children, particularly Nyarlathotep and Yog Sothoth. Tsathoggua, however, seems much less overtly affected by this than the others.
  • Family of Choice: Surtr and Babalon are Parental Substitutes for him, while Arc is something of a sibling in his eyes.
  • Meat Puppet: The figure that's depicted in Azathoth's art isn't the true form of Azathoth but the person who summoned him. Azathoth is currently controlling the body, the owner of which is currently dormant and physically sleeping while Azathoth projects a dream version to interact with the world.
  • Throne Made of X: The throne Azathoth sits on was formed from the core of a dead star.


     Ueno Beast Tamersnote  

Leib

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fg_rave01.png
Ueno Head Researcher

An Alder tree spirit Transient that appeared from the world of Tir na Nog. He attends as a medical department graduate student researcher, though he stands out for speaking like he's someone older. Leib is the dorm supervisor of the beastman dedicated dorms at Taito Ward's Ueno Academy and the supervisor of the research labs. His Rule and Role can transplant the dangers bearing down on someone to elsewhere and let only whoever he chooses to survive. He hates the costs involved, so unless it's a crisis he doesn't see taking any active movements as a good thing. As a result he's despised as a useless troublemaker by the other labs, and his kouhai see him as a jerk senpai who will dump tons of work on them because they're young. Leib tends to grumble to himself about the latest slang being used as inappropriate.


  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Leib is a medical student and researcher, and is for all intents and purposes, seemingly very intelligent. He's also, notably, quite perceptive and gives very good advice to Agyo in the Oriental New Year event. However, he's known for being very lazy as well, to the point where his dorm-mate and partner Cu Sith has to pester him just to get him out of bed.


Cu Sith

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cu_sith_3.png
Fluffy High Schooler

Voiced by: Kenta Kumamoto

He attends an academy in Ueno popular among Therian transients, particularly the furry type. He's a bit of a crybaby, but his usual cheerful and very friendly nature makes him very likeable. Before he was summoned, he was kept as a guard dog by the fairy Gruagach, who was Cu Sith's Summoner, but also his father, brother, and irreplaceable family. However, his former master is now nowhere to be found.


  • Bad Powers, Good People: It's difficult to imagine a character more unexpected than sweet, gentle crybaby Cu Sith to have a skill named Harbinger of Death.
  • Cry Cute: Because of his crybaby nature he tends to tear up even when he's happy, in addition to...
  • Cute, but Cacophonic
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: His voice is his primary weapon as a guard dog: the first few warning barks are able to suppress the aggressive urges of those who hear him, while his Third Howling is a destructive shockwave of sound.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to two separate duos, both his friend Moritaka and his pseudo-rival Garmr.
  • Team Mom: Seemingly plays a bit of this role among his schoolmates at Ueno, where he prepares meals and makes sure workaholic Leib eats properly and and (tries to) stay on a normal sleep schedule.
  • Tragic Keepsake: His green scarf was knit by his former master, with a prayer for Cu Sith's happiness woven in as a charm.
  • Unknown Rival: Though he's viewed by Garmr as a rival, Cu Sith would really rather just be friends; often just frustrating Garmr even further when Cu Sith doesn't respond the way he wants to challenges.

Jambavan

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jambavan_3star_full.png
Genius Med Student

Voiced by: Kenta Kumamoto

A bear Transient and high school student. Although Jambavan is an incredibly gifted medical student with a brilliant mind he has a fundamentally timid, submissive personality and is a chronic worrier, which can be troublesome for the older students he is surrounded by. He works for the App's GM team in West Tokyo.


  • Amplifier Artifact: His sacred treasure, the Syamantaka jewel of Indian mythology, is capable of granting him unbelievable, world-shattering power; but with the caveat that he can only wield power from the jewel proportional to the opponent he's up against.
    • Weaksauce Weakness: ...conversely, he is also proportionally as weak as his opponent, which gets used against him by both Alice, who bosses him around, and Ose, who kidnaps him in Chapter 6. Additionally, the artifact depends on his perception of the person: if he doesn't personally view them as evil then the jewel switches to healing instead, so he can't fight someone he sympathizes with on some level.
  • Dodge the Bullet: When he gets shot at by black suit bodyguards in Chapter 6: thanks to his proportional strength ability he's fast enough to dodge the hail of gunfire completely.
  • Dressed to Heal: Wears a doctor's labcoat at all times, and carries his Sacred Treasure jewel at the end of his stethoscope.
  • Extreme Doormat: Abused by Alice because of his conflict-avoidant nature; she tends to foist all her work onto him.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: He'd really rather not be a part of any world domination schemes, and tries unsuccessfully to talk Alice into just dropping things and going home when possible.
  • Nervous Wreck: Jambavan is a worrywart and pessimist by nature.
  • Senpai Kouhai: Has this relationship with Leib, his senior and dormitory manager at his college. Judging by the way Jambavan talks about him, Leib isn't always the best or most responsible, but has Jambavan's best interests at heart.
  • Teen Genius: He does poorly in social situations, but is academically talented, to the point he studies medical science at college.
    • Fish out of Water: Because of this, he feels out of place among the much older students at college.
  • White Mage: A single-target healer with the most consistent status cleansing ability ingame.

Fenrir

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fg_fenrir01.png
Lone Wolf

Voiced by: Masahiro Ogata

A wolf Transient who is never trusting, yet very gullible. He paints himself into a corner and then says, "See? Now you'll betray me, right?" In other words, he has a subconscious desire to be tied down and is generally a pain to deal with. He claims that he can withstand any sort of pain, and true to his words, is actually extremely resilient. He has long lost siblings: a little brother who has no concept of personal space, and a little sister who falls in love easily but goes crazy...literally. He's extremely easy to befriend if you show him sincerity.


  • Chuunibyou: Speaks in fancy, eloquent riddles, talks about darkness and all-around just tends to phrase his sentences in a much more outlandish, edgy manner than his cohorts, not to mention his taste for silver jewelry and black leather and insistence on how the power within him must be restrained. What makes this funny is that he both originates from and currently lives in two distinct worlds where magic, gods, and other similar things are real, making this chuuni persona even more bizarre in the context of the setting.
  • The Nicknamer: Connects back to his Chuunibyou nature, but he does tend to give people crazy nicknames, such as "Maiden Stained With Ego," "Attention-Seeking Maiden," and "Outlaw Pushy Maiden" (all different nicknames for Benten).

     Kamata Crafters note  

In General

A guild of mechanics, engineers, and artisans located in Kamata dedicated to the perfection of their craft. An unspoken truce exists among the other guilds of Tokyo not to come into conflict with the Crafters, as their members often work on ways to better understand the Sacred Artifacts of those who come to see them.

Hailing from the Land of Wa, where he led the Eastern ogres, Takemaru enjoys DIY projects. He surrendered his blade, his only form of protection, in order to protect his friends, and has instead made sure his neck will be invulnerable from now on. Since coming to Tokyo, he has joined the group that bonded his neck, the Kamata Crafters, and is attending college to learn about architecture. He recognizes his own dislike of angels and humans, races who have deceived him in the past, and yet he possesses a strong sense of duty and is easily charmed. He dreams of one day having a life companion to be lovey-dovey with, so he's devoted himself to creating a home fit for that future.


Hephaestus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fg_hephaestus01_skin4.png
Robot Engineer

Voiced By: Kenji Nomura


  • Absolute Cleavage: Both Hephaestus and Talos wear their mechanic overalls with the zipper completely undone, thus showing off their expansive chest and abs.
  • Abusive Parent: A cycle that started with Hera who threw him from Olympus, just like in myth, then he unfortunately continue to perpetuate with his own “son”, Talos. Narrations of chapter 9 makes it clear that Hephaestus only see Talos as an extremely expensive gift he has worked hard to prepare for his mother the Protagonist, rather than as a living person with their own will and desires. Fortunately, things improves a little between them in the same chapter.
  • Androids Are People, Too: While Talos is submissive to Hephaestus’s will, moments within chapter 9 makes it clear Talos was more than just a tool and had his own feelings regarding both his creator and the Protagonist. This all culminated in Talos’ decision to save Hephaestus, a person who Talos still views as a father-figure despite his treatment of him, from the rampaging Protagonist by physically shielding him.
  • Always Someone Better: He deliberately invoked this trope when he made Talos, an android who represents the “ideal self” Hephaestus seeks. Talos is not only more physically able, confident, and sociable than Hephaestus is, but also carries all his memories and intellect. This of course, unfortunately results in Hephaestus holding a certain degree of disdain toward his own creation/son as he constantly sees Talos as a version of himself without any of his flaws and someone who is more deserving of his “mother” loves than he is.
  • Death Seeker: Having his memories from previous timelines restored by the Warmongers’ guild and by extension, the knowledge that the Protagonist was repeatedly slain in these loops by their loved ones, which heavily implies includes Hephaestus. Hephaestus had resolved to secure the Protagonist first, then accelerate the fighting in Tokyo to new cataclysmic levels with the intended end results of killing everyone save the Protagonist and Talos.
  • Genius Cripple: As in myth, Hephaestus does not have functioning legs. Of course, that does nothing to stop him from creating an army of mecha troopers, an android duplicate equipped with an advance AI, and even a pair of prosthetic legs to overcome his disability.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Scars litter his body, likely the result from his fall from Mt. Olympus. These and his right eye are some of the key differences between him and Talos, whose skin possess none of Hephaestus’ scars.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: His reason for “disliking” Takemaru. As while Takemaru is a natural leader with a jovial temperament, Hephaestus is the complete opposite.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: A berserk Protagonist unfortunately blew a defending Talos to pieces during their rampage. Thankfully it wasn’t too serious as Hephaestus was able to quickly put him back together to repel Hombretigre at the end of the chapter.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Talos threw himself between Hephaestus and the Protagonist, in order to shield his creator from the Protagnoist’s Exception energy eruption. While he was reduced to a dozen pieces, it thankfully only put him offline and Hephaestus was able to quickly repair him and get him online again to repel the invading Warmongers.
  • Hyper-Competent Sidekick: Talos is this for Hephaestus. This was a deliberate feature as Hephaestus wanted to ensure Talos would be capable of adapting to and resolving any situation once he is passed on to the Protagonist had things went according to plan and Talos was made the Protagonist’s sole protector.
  • Kill Them All: Hephaestus’ plan for all of Tokyo, himself included, had he been successful in containing the Protagonist, to ensure no one could ever hurt his “mother” ever again.
  • Love Makes You Evil: Well, not evil, so much as desperate and extreme. Having his memories restored resulted in Hephaestus becoming resolved in protecting the Protagonist in this timeline at any cost, even it means killing anyone who could even remotely pose a threat to us, even and especially including himself.
  • Magical Eye: His first sacred artifact, a right eye that grants him the ability to identify the flaws of anything he gazes upon, which allows him to create nearly flawless inventions and weapons. This greatly aids in his work as an engineer and blacksmith as he can always ensure his inventions of the highest specs and in the case where they do fail, identify and immediately improve upon those flaws.
  • Mecha-Mooks: He has apparently discovered how to reverse engineer and replicate Curren’s Troopers. He has made enough for a small army in his underground bunker/workshop.
  • Nice Guy: Mostly applies to Talos as per his intended programming.
  • No Social Skills: Hephaestus in spades, unlike Talos.
  • Playing with Fire: His in-game element. Fire flows from his magical eye and is one of the key differences between him and Talos. Talos on the other hand is capable of emitting searing heat from his body.
  • Parental Abandonment: Just like in myth, Hephaestus was abandoned at birth by Hera due to his crippled legs.
  • Parental Substitute: Eurynome found the abandoned infant Hephaestus and raised him back in Olympus. He had thought the world of her and spent most of his early childhood inventing and building for her sake, until the day she faded away, implied to be when she had the call to Tokyo. This left Hephaestus greatly sadden, until he too answered the call to Tokyo and found the Protagonist who carried the soul of Eurynome. He now views the Protagonist in much the same way he saw Eurynome and is willing to go to any lengths to protect them.
  • Replacement Goldfish: A two-fold case. The Protagonist, who holds Eurynome’s soul, who is the adopted mother of Hephaestus, is this to the smith god. At the same time, Hephaestus had initially planned for Talos to be this for the Protagonist if his KillThemAll plan had been gone without a hitch, as Hephaestus had no plans to survive the cataclysm and thus wanted a reliable guardian for the Protagonist.
  • Robot Me: Talos, his second sacred artifact, serves as this. Although this was originally not the case, as Talos’ initial form was describes as similar to a bronze drum.
  • Self-Deprecation: Hephaestus is seemingly entirely incapable of loving himself. His internal monologue throughout most of chapter 9 is filled with self-demeaning labels about himself like “Trashy Genius” and describing himself as no better than an arms-dealer.
  • Tears of Remorse: Overlaps with HeelRealization heel realization, as Hephaestus only realizes Talos had cared about him after Talos was blown to pieces trying to protect him. After doing what he could for the Protagonist’s sword, Hephaestus was left alone to weep over the remains of his son. Thankfully he managed to regain himself and put Talos back together.
  • Tron Lines: They appear on Talos’ limbs and neck to represent where these parts are joined together.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: With his memories of previous timelines restored. Hephaestus concluded that everyone in Tokyo, himself included, was a danger to the Protagonist and had to be eliminated. To this end, he was prepared to go on an all-out war against everyone in Tokyo to ensure no one could be left to harm and/or exploit his “mother”, the Protagonist, ever again.

Voiced By: Masahiro Ogata

A stereotypical high school delinquent who hangs around Asakusa in Taito Ward. Due to certain events, he ended up adopting two oni infants, Zenki and Goki, as their papa rather than their Summoner. Ever since he was small, he'd get into fights after staring people down, but he's also sentimental, easily moved to tears, and has a caring heart of gold when it comes to kids. He dyed his hair blond, thinking that looking strong would prevent others from picking fights with him, but this ironically led to more frequent conflict.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fg_hombretigre01_skin2.png
Cheery Luchador

Voiced By: Kenta Miyake

A Tiger transient from the world of El Dorado who happens to be one of the leading members of the Warmongers. After willingly becoming a sacrifice, he has since come to Tokyo and adopted the persona of a professional wrestler, favoring the ideal of lucha libre, in honor of the patron who's allowed him to live.


  • Big Entrance: After fighting the wrestler mobs, Hombretigre makes his grand entrance, complete with adoring fans, colored smoke, strobing lights, theme music, and an announcer hyping up his entry.
  • Finishing Move: Attempted against Arc, though convenient intervention from the Crafters and Xolotl stop it from being completed.
  • A Lizard Named "Liz": The game refers to him by his stage name, which translates from Spanish to mean "weretiger".
  • Kayfabe: The entire fight against Hombretigre is set up as a professional wrestling match from start to finish, despite the battle supposedly being 100% serious. Hombretigre and the naguals don't break character once until the Protagonist arrives on the scene.
  • Now Buy the Merchandise: Hombretigre stops to hawk Hombretigre and Warmonger merchandise in the middle of the fight to the crowd, despite the fact that they're in a workshop with no spectators around.
  • Petting Zoo People: He's a tiger therian.
  • Professional Wrestling: Hombretigre is a self-proclaimed luchador, and from the moment you first hear about him in this game, you're steeped in pro wrestling culture.
  • Theatrics of Pain: Hombretigre and the wrestlers do this just about every time they're being hit, selling pain at a level that even Arc finds ridiculous for the amount of damage they were dishing out.
  • The Symbiote: He's in this kind of relationship with Tezcatlipoca, who Hombretigre sacrificed his own heart to. Tezcatlipoca inhabits Hombretigre and works as his missing heart. In return, Hombretigre has dedicated himself to eternal battle in Tezcatlipoca's name, as he's become a tool for Tezacatlipoca, he, himself, is a nagual.

Voiced By: Masato Ushiki

A Transient from Xanadu, a world filled with grand plains, he is adept with the bow and arrow. The wolf king of the plains, Borte Chinoa the Great, and the white doe are the ancestors he is proud to honor. As heir to the leadership of his people, he has been summoned to Tokyo to expand his horizons as well as to build relationships at the Archery club while honing his archery skills. He respects those skilled in archery.


  • Archer Archetype: Independent? Check. Arrogant? Big check.
  • Defeat Means Respect: During his Golden Week event, Shinya strikes his fancy and is invited to be a part of his harem. When he declines, Temujin angrily tries to arrange a duel between the two archers with the condition that Shinya be part of his harem if he wins. However, when Shinya throws away an opportunity to win the match in favor of helping Temujin after a coughing fit nearly gets him thrown from his horse Temujin relents, saying his pride would not stand for winning in such a way. Instead, he declares he will win Shinya's heart naturally, agreeing to be Friendly Rivals for the time being.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: He closed himself off emotionally and refuses friendship after being betrayed by his once closest ally, one of the souls hosted within the protagonist: Jamukha.
  • Harem Seeker: Will ask anyone that catches his eye to be a part of his harem without the least bit of reservation.
  • Heir Club for Men: Due to his Soap Opera Disease, he is extremely open about his desire to have as many children as possible, seeing it as proof that he existed.

  • Secretly Dying: Tries to hide his illness, due to his general distrust of others and desire to be independent.

Jinn

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jinn_3star_full.png
Hot-Blooded Teacher

Voiced by: Kentarō Itō

A male djinn Transient who works at Shinjuku Academy as the protagonist's class's assistant teacher. He guides his students zealously with his trademark red jersey and shinai. He holds an unusually strong affection for his students. Has an extraordinary rough personality and a noninterference principle. His education policies and his personality don't mesh with his coworker within the same school, the rule-fussy Triton, and they get on like water and oil. His other coworker Mononobe, the homeroom teacher of the protagonist, is held up by him as the embodiment of what a teacher should be with profound trust and reverence.

Despite appearing early on in the story, he has only been released as a playable unit with the Seaside School Event in 2017.



Triton

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/triton_3star_full.png
Keep Clam and Teach

Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa

A teacher of Shinjuku Academy where the protagonist and friends attend. He's always competing with his coworker Jinn in what ways they love their students and their appropriateness as teachers. In contrast to Jinn's lively nature and hands off approach, Triton prizes order and has a serious personality. As part of the species known as mermen, underwater activity is his forte, so he coaches the swimming and water polo teams at school. He likes moist locations, so he normally lives in the Shinjuku Academy's dorm manager's bath unit. He holds great respect for his fellow teacher Mononobe.

Despite appearing early on in the story, he has only been released as a playable unit with the Remote Island Expedition Event in 2017.



Shuichi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shuuichi_3star_full.png
Brilliance with both Pen and Sword

Voiced by: Masato Ushiki

A high school student who, while being known in Tokyo as a kendo strongarm and accomplished military and literary scholar, commutes to prep school. He acts as the manager of a student think-tank centered in Hongo, Bunkyo Ward. At the same time, he is a member of the upper echelons of the Hongo Wisemen, allies of the Berserkers. He adores doting on his one and only little brother Duo, but is always saddened by being treated as an annoyance. Knowing the darkness from before the time when Transient's appeared in Tokyo, he doesn't trust anything other than his blood-ties.


  • Big Brother Instinct. To put it lightly.
  • Decoy Leader: Of sorts. Most people simply assume he leads the Wisemen, as he does all the talking.
  • Heroic BSoD: Sadly, he is absolutely broken and destroyed by the traumatic reveal that not only was Duo playing him like a fiddle, but he was also in league with Chapter 8's apparent Big Bad, Michael.
  • Knowledge Broker: Essentially. The Hongo Guild specializes in observing and gathering data on everything, which his Sacred Artifact allows him to do. He passes all data on to his brother to analyze.
  • Sibling Team: Despite their differences, they work together as a team.

Duo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/duo_3star_full.png
The Genius of Hongo

Voiced by: Mutsuki Arisawa

Brother of Shuichi and child prodigy whose parents are Japanese and Indian. He has obtained over 10 doctorates via virtual schooling in fields such as mathematics and physics. He is the guild master of the Hongo Guild located in Bunkyo Ward that also operates as a student think-tank. Duo is a nickname with several origins, one of which being that there are two Ds in his full name. He is surprisingly friendly toward people who treat him in a manner appropriate to his young age.


  • Child Prodigy: In part thanks to his Sacred Artifact which acts as a sort of second brain capable of incredible thought processes.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Happens when The Pillars show their faces at the Chapter 8 finale. Shuichi is happy to see his brother is alive and well, only for Duo to disregard him, revealing his allegiance to The Pillars. Shuichi....doesn't take it very well.
  • The Man Behind the Man: A non-villainous example. He is the guild master of the Hongo Guild, yet most people assume it is his older brother Shuichi.
  • The Mole: In chapter 7, we learn from Shuichi that Duo was kidnapped by an unknown party. It's discovered later that this party happens to be The World Pillars, and that Duo was never kidnapped. Rather, it was all a plan orchestrated by Duo to help manipulate events in the favor of the Pillars.
  • The Quiet One: He never speaks to anyone but his brother.
  • Sibling Team: Despite their differences, they work together as a team.


Alice

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alice_3star_full.png
Gothic Lolita

Voiced by: Mutsuki Arisawa

An odd girl dressed in Gothic-Lolita style, who speaks in a prosey style. She's very selfish and lacking in decorum due to her inability to socialize normally, and treats her partner Jambavan like a servant. Sometimes her words are harsh, sometimes fierce, but more often her utterings are rather garbled, confusing those around her. She looks as though she came straight out of a fairytale. She is a member of the app game's GM team in West Tokyo.


  • Alice Allusion: In this case, she is outright the same person.
  • A Day in the Limelight: While she is normally unable to interact with the normal world, on the day of Halloween, when fantasy and reality intermingle, she is able to be remembered by others. She's so overjoyed when the day comes that she gives Jambavan a day off.
  • Changing Clothes Is a Free Action: Changes between two extremely elaborate costumes, complete with eye and hair color changes, constantly throughout the Halloween party event.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: The Halloween party event, though the Hero is unaware of her villain role at the time.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Her treatment of Jambavan. While she does genuinely like and consider him a friend, her stunted social development and Jambavan's Shrinking Violet tendencies lead to her abusing his doormat nature and bossing him around.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Her ability causes her to drift out of the memories of others; to the point she can infiltrate the Berserkers guild simply by walking in the front door, as any witnesses forget all about her the moment she's out of sight.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: Lives a high-class lifestyle, but due to her ability she is forgotten by everyone except her fellow GM, Jambavan, who is her only "friend" but remains with her because he has to rather than out of mutual friendship.
  • Loophole Abuse: Able to keep Jambavan under her thumb despite the incredible power his Sacred Treasure grants him, because she is physically weak but has powerful mental abilities.
  • Mysterious Waif
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Her Halloween costume variant: unable to pick just one thing, her costume for the Halloween party is a mishmash of elements she dubs a Vampire Knight Detective.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: In cases where someone manages to rile her up, her eyes glow red.
  • Token Mini-Moe: One of the rare females in the cast, and most importantly, the only one looking like a little girl.

Kirito

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kirito_3star_full.png
Local Assassin

Voiced by:

A member of a small criminal group that lurks around Ikebukuro and is mainly active in the Ikebukuro underground. He would bury his knife all the way into a human body without a sliver of hesitation. To him, any and all human contact is nothing more than a means for survival... At least, until he meets a certain man...

Despite his numerous appearances he is one of the few recurring characters who has not been released as a playable unit yet.


  • Empty Shell: Cares only about his own survival with no ambitions or friends to speak of.
  • Half-Hearted Henchman: He appears in several chapters, always as a contractor of the current villain, but is usually not interested in their goals.
  • Knife Nut: His Weapon of Choice.
  • Parental Abandonment: Implied. Has no relations to anyone as of yet and instead calls Babalon his "Unlovable Mother".
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: In Chapter 8, after the exceptions are unleashed, Kirito loans a young girl whose parents had been killed by the disaster a knife, and a tipoff that Babalon was the person responsible.

  • Recurring Boss: Appears in several chapters.

Christine

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/christine_3star_full.png
Starring Lady of Yurakucho

Voiced by: Naoko Matsui

A high school actress with a thousand faces, belonging to the Yurakucho Entertainers. Each of the multicolored masks of her Sacred Artifact contains a different person's memories, the Rule contained therein allowing her to re-enact any performance, no matter the circumstances. When playing a role, she exudes a strong stage presence, but beneath the mask lies her true face: detached, ephemeral. She was born for the fantasy of festivals, and illuminates the fictional stage of the App with brilliant, showy color. She has vowed to devote herself to her first, true fan.


  • Character Narrator: Acts as one during the Desert Journey event.
  • It Amused Me: From what limited screentime she had so far, it seems her and her guild's only real intention is to provide entertainment to the people using the App.
  • Wild Card: Her troupe has kept out of the affairs involving the other guilds so far, only observing and keeping their distance. She has neither supported nor hindered anyone, however she is also not above using the chaotic circumstances as distraction for her own goals.

Musashi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/musashi_3.png
Boy Bodyguard

Voiced by: Yumiko Kobayashi

A young boy carrying five sword Sacred Artifacts, one for each element, from which he has withdrawn memories. At times he is a swordsman, at others a tactician, calligrapher, educator, or a wanderer who rejects the very world. The memories of all five beings are known collectively as the legendary Demon Swordsman of the Land of Wa. After a certain accident renders the boy unconscious, the memories control his sleeping body in turns. Wishing to fight against strong sword wielders, he throws himself into App battles with the ferocity of a rogue samurai. He has traumatic memories of being washed away, and so runs away from baths at full speed.


  • Katanas Are Just Better: Wields five of them at once as his Weapon of Choice.
  • Ronin
  • Split-Personality Team: The memories of five distinct beings are housing in the body of this little boy, but they seem to work well together. Whoever is the dominant entity changes according to the situation.
  • Symbiotic Possession: Of a sort. The details remain unclear, but the different entities are "borrowing" the body of a teenage boy and work for money as a sort of compensation to him, should they ever leave his body.

Barguest

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fg_barguest01.png
The Forsaken Beast

Voiced by: Josuke Shinomiya

A mountain spirit Transient incarnated in the shape of a bear. Due to unforeseen circumstances, he lost his Summoner. He currently belongs to the Arakawa Guild among other Stray Transients who have gathered in self-defense. In order to earn their keep, they do the dirty work commissioned by the Roppongi Guild. He cares deeply for his friends and holds good will toward anyone who would show compassion toward his friends.


  • Bears Are Bad News: A large bear who attracts misfortune wherever he goes. Ironically, it's not that he himself is a dangerous or bad person- see The Jinx below.
  • Hates Being Touched: During the Black Snow on the Hot Spring Mountains event, Barguest repeatedly blocks Ashigara from patting his shoulder, citing that he doesn't want his bad luck to rub off on Ashigara even though they're friendly towards one another.
  • Papa Wolf: Deeply protective of Kenta, who is essentially his surrogate child.
  • The Jinx: Quite literally! His Sacred Artifact, the chains that adorn his body, attract ill will and bad luck.

Algernon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fg_algernon01.png
Clean-Up Committee Cyborg

Voiced by: Kenyuu Horiuchi and Rumi Ookubo

A cyborg from the world of Utopia. Subject to an experiment to enhance his physical and mental capabilities, the man inside the suit of armor now works contract jobs to literally and metaphorically clean up the city. The true name of the man in the suit is unknown. Rather, he and the AI contained in his suit go by the name of Algernon.



Breke

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fg_breke01.png
Amnesiac Werewolf

Voiced By: Masato Ushiki

Existing somewhere between the lines of human, wolf, and machine, Breke is all of the above, yet not quite any of them at the same time. Much like the Player Character, Breke arrived in Tokyo with no memories of his life before. Equipped with nothing more than a suit of nanomachines and voices that hint at foreboding possibilities, Breke is trying to navigate the mysterious purpose for his being in Tokyo.


  • Easy Amnesia: Breke is introduced into the story suffering retrograde amnesia. There seems to be bits and pieces of his past life that have surfaced, though much remains unclear.
  • Hearing Voices: It isn't long at all after his introduction that Breke begins hearing voices in his head. For the most part they seem to be providing hints about his past and providing guidance for him.
  • Petting Zoo People: Breke has the anthropomorphic appearance of a wolf.
  • Quest for Identity: After getting out of the jam he initially finds himself in, it appears Breke has decided to take on this particular mission.
  • Spy Catsuit: The outfit Breke wears is made of nanomachines, and since it appears that he has some relation to combat fields of work, of course it defaults to a rather form-fitting catsuit. And since this is Tokyo Afterschool Summoners, the Stripperific crotch zipper is almost expected at this point.

Cowardly Reindeer

Voiced by: Masato Yoshida

A fey reindeer Transient from the world of Tir na Nog who dreams of becoming a Santa Claus. In Tokyo, various Santas from various worlds have gathered at the academy he attends. They are currently receiving lessons on how to achieve that status. He's typically cheerful but has a nervous personality.

  • Subbing for Santa: Him, the player and Ryota team up to deliver the presents on Christmas Eve in the Apprentice Santa's Gift event.

Click here to see his Dark Santa form 

An ice spirit from the world of Kitzeh, he is the bona fide Santa Claus. He is also the principal of the academy where the various Santas from the 23 worlds have gathered in Tokyo. He watches over his students like a father. But his rectitude is but a manifestation of one side of his character.


  • Badass Santa: Definitely invokes this in his Dark Santa mode.
  • More Dakka: His artifact manifests as various firearms in his dark mode.
  • Santa Claus
  • Split Personality: A kind and patient classical Santa figure to reward the good children, and a more aggressive, strict dark Santa figure to punish the naughty children. The latter also surfaces in order to train his students to become Santas themselves.

Jiraiya

Universal Jolly Boy

Voiced by: Toshiyuki Hosaka

A hot-blooded ninja from the Land of Wa. Jirayia is the pseudonym he assumes when he acts as a chivalrous thief. He is a jovial and openhearted nice guy (self-proclaimed). He distributes the money and treasures he steals from evildoers among the poor. He, himself, is constantly short on money and lives in abject poverty at a temple. He will accept any job for food and strongly respects heroes who endeavor to bring happiness to others.



Krampus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fg_krampus011.png
Black Santa Apprentice

Voiced by: Masaki Terasoma

A lion-like Transient who trains at Tokyo's Santa School to become a proficient Black Santa. Upon first glance he may seem to have a frightening exterior, but he actually has a timid and gentle personality when not on the job.


  • Ambiguous Species: Is Krampus a lion? A mouse? But he has horns...? What is he?
  • Covered with Scars: Krampus got all of those scars in his training to master his Sacred Artifact, his claw weapons.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: His Sacred Artifact inspires fear and horror in his targets. Ironically, he's incredibly kind.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: With his getup, Krampus looks like someone you'd meet in a dark alley on a particularly unfortunate night. What if I told you that this guy wants to be a hero who protects people and saves the innocent?
  • Emotion Bomb: Krampus's Sacred Artifact causes fear, horror, and self-reflection in his targets.
  • Evil Counterpart: Initially, Krampus is incredibly afraid that everyone will only know him for his terrifying appearance, and he'll be alone forever. Cue a dream sequence where he comes face to face with his Black Santa persona who is Exactly This, a being who Krampus actively refuses to accept as part of him.
  • Face of a Thug: He may look like a thug, but he's anything but.
  • Geek: Krampus absolutely loves Super Sentai shows. He loves it so much he will Call His Attacks out loud as he watches his favorite episodes, and has such an encyclopedic knowledge of Super Sentai that he was able to immediately recognize a specific actress by name and the single episode she appeared in by looking at her once.
  • Gentle Giant: Krampus has the body of a professional athlete, and is also one of the most soft-spoken and timid characters you will ever meet.
  • Heartwarming Moment: At the end of his event, when the Protagonist and Krampus defeat their opponents in a wrestling match and prove to everyone that Krampus (and his newfound heroic wrestler persona) can, in fact, truly be heroes. Cue this quote, spoken entirely through TearsOfJoy.
Krampus:The reason I'm here right now... it's thanks to the support of my friends, [the Protagonist] who was fighting along with me... and, everyone who cheered for me! Everyone in the venue... Truly, truly... Thank you very much!
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: In order to do his job as a Black Santa, Krampus has to adopt this in order to scare away his targets. He's terrified that this is all people will know him for.
  • I Am What I Am: Through the Protagonist's help, Ryota's encouragement, and Ded's guidance, Krampus realizes that his Black Santa persona doesn't completely define who he is. He learns that "heroes" and "villains" are two sides of the same coin; he doesn't have to give up on his dreams, as his Black Santa persona can be something good and positive. Krampus finally accepts that it is an important part of who he is.
  • Petting Zoo People: Krampus appears to be a muscular lion-like Transient with ramlike horns. This is quite interesting, because in standard lore, Krampus is typically depicted as having goat-like features.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: For naughty people, at least. He acts scary and mean as part of his job, but is a docile person normally.
  • Stock Shōnen Hero: Deep down, Krampus wants to be this, but fears that his Black Santa job will prevent him from ever achieving this dream.
  • Stripperiffic: Krampus' wrestling outfit is, uh, revealing to say the least, complete with tight fishnet leggings and an exposed midriff. It was specifically chosen to "make him stand out."
  • When He Smiles: His character portraits normally show him with a wicked smirk or dour frown. Several alternate pictures, however, feature him happily blushing or wearing incredibly sweet smiles.
  • Wolverine Claws: His family's Sacred Artifact, which is his weapon of choice.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Krampus trains to be a "hero" by... practicing wrestling moves with Taurus Mask.


Tanngrisnir

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tanngrisnir_3.png
Trainer of Greenhorns

Voiced by: Jun Kasama

Originates from the other world Yggdrasil. A goat beastman Transient with pitch black fur. He is renowned for his experience in pulling a chariot in his previous world, and now he waves a pointer around as part of the Santa School's Reindeer department. It hasn't been long since he became a teacher, so often one can say he hasn't gotten used to teaching. He still wants to be an active member, but he has a non-healing wound on his leg so he has retired. His previous master was an outrageous hero, so his influence has made his nature a bit rough. When he gets fired up his mouth shoots off before his head and he acts before thinking; he also forgets about his injury and starts to run, which leads to painful feelings. After becoming a teacher he has taken to minding his tone and believes himself to behaving like an intellectual, but onlookers see him as a meathead. Recently students have pointed this out to him, so he's worried about it a little.



Sitri

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sitri_3.png
Demon in the Rebellious Phase

Voiced by: Yui Toita

A middle-schooled-aged demonic Transient who is a self-proclaimed men among men and finds talk of romance or love deeply uncomfortable. Despite that (or maybe because of it?), he has quite a romantic view of things. He has a tendency to strongly respect manly men who don't have any interest in love or romance. His Sacred Artifacts are the Griffon Wings on his back that have been steadily growing as he comes of age.


  • Does Not Like Spam: While he claims to dislike chocolate, he actually enjoys it, which he's embarrassed by due to believing it "unmanly".
  • I Want to Be a Real Man: Admires courageous and manly men who aren't interested in romance, and wants to become like that to cover up his insecurities and issues with himself.
  • Precocious Crush: Used to follow around Kengo, his senior, and give him chocolates for Valentines when both of them were younger and in school together.
  • Self-Applied Nickname: Calls himself and others he respects "cool cats" in the English version.
  • Temporary Online Content: Both his 3* and 4* versions are only available from the annual Valentines event shop and not part of the regular gacha.
  • Totally Radical: Has shades of this kind of speaking pattern in English.

Shinya

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shinya_3star_full.png
Light Archer

Voiced by: Masato Yoshida

A gentle high school student and archery club member, accompanied by the cherubim Cupid. He has a soul that overlaps with a god existing within one of the parallel gate worlds, and the godly energy crosses that barrier, welling up in him. But if this extraordinary power accumulates too much in his ordinary human body it could destroy not only him, but Tokyo itself. Having taken a liking to Shinya, Cupid helps him out by periodically releasing this overflowing power in the form of light arrows. There is, unfortunately, the stipulation that the arrows cannot be fired aimlessly and must hit someone.


  • Blessed with Suck: Has a power some teenagers would kill for, but is deeply troubled by using it, and will die and take the rest of the city with him if he doesn't.
  • Cupid's Arrow: Essentially his Sacred Artifact.
  • Hero of Another Story: Once stopped Kalki, an Avatar of Destruction, from rampaging in Tokyo as part of his backstory.
  • Emotion Bomb: His power isn't simply making anyone hit by one of his arrows fall in love with him, but forcing them to feel any emotion he wants them to, including heartbreak and despair. He uses this power to break several people free of the obsessive infatuation Sitri's feathers cause.
  • Power Perversion Potential: Subverted. Should the Hero bring it up, Shinya angrily rebuts that his charm ability isn't fun or titillating to him; the manic, obsessive love inspired by Cupid's arrows makes him more uncomfortable than anything.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: What getting hit by one of his arrows usually inspires towards him.

Knight of Impropriety

Voiced by: Orie Kimoto

She is a knighted Transient who joined the fencing team at school after being summoned to Tokyo. In her home world, she was not permitted to pursue the path of knighthood. The only one who acknowledged her effords was her lord, Ahriman, so she pledged her loyalty to him. Her Rapier Sacred Artifact can unleash the Rule of Impropriety, which breaks down any ornery ideas her opponents might cling to. She respects those who live and breathe the Code of Chivalry.



Kalki

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kalki_3.png
Tenth Avatar

Voiced by: Takashi Yonezawa

This Transient has a highly sculpted physique, four strong arms, a stubborn will, and a scrupulous mind that leads him to detest chaos of any kind. He was seen as destruction incarnate in the world he hailed from. After being summoned to Tokyo, he was angered by the chaos and considered destroying everything but then the arrow of Cupid struck his heart, causing him to fall in love. He is extremely stand-off-ish in nature, but sweet as sugar when facing with the one he loves. He would still take the opportunity to destroy the world at the drop of a hat, so he needs to be watched closely.

He aims to become a professional player in the future but his skills are still sub-par and it will be a while before he makes the starting lineup. Drawn to his sincerity and tactless honesty, a Transient shepherd named David took a liking to him and possessed him. Though he himself lacks talent, he is well-liked by people who do have it which gives him opportunity to hone his skills and better himself. However, talented people cause him to feel inferior so he can't help but rebel against their advice.

Back in the mountains of his home world, he lost to a certain man in a sumo match and chose to quit while he was ahead. Ever since, he has trained ceaselessly in sumo technique and honed his mind, body, and skill. As a result, he has come to be called the strongest in the nation, giving him the right to wear the Sacred Artifact of a Shinto Straw Festoon. He feels a strong empathy toward one born and raised in the mountains who presents a gloomy nature and a penchant for becoming attached.

Iron Fist of Discipline

Voiced by: Yasuaki Takumi

An enlightened Transient and member of the disciplinary committee at Roppongi Academy in Minato Ward, a school with many powerful and influential affiliates. His Rule converts passion into pure energy, and the danger of such power drives him to demand strict self-discipline both from himself and others. He burns with a deep hostility toward those desperate to be liked, but thinks highly of Ophion, who pulls the strings at Roppongi Academy and is equally cruel to everyone.



Zao

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zao_3.png
Scout Leader

Voiced by: Daisuke Tōyama

He is the leader of the Shinjuku Academy Scouts and knows everything there is to know about hiking. He does part time jobs around Shinjuku and Ikebukuro while pitting himself against the mountains of other worlds that have appeared in Tokyo. Whenever he's not working, he's up in the mountains, resulting in dangerously low attendance rate at school. The third eye on his forehead gives him a sixth sense that shows him the right path to survival even on the most treacherous of mountains. He is extremely strict on anyone who underestimates or desecrates mountains.


  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He has difficulty with regular social interactions and even has trouble ordering coffee at a cafe (he cites trying to order as being like trying to speak a foreign language), but his knowledge about mountaineering and hiking is unparallelled.
  • Gentle Giant: Despite his large appearance and overbearing demeanor, Zao is legitimately a kind person, and is well-liked by people who take the time to get to know him.
  • Nature Lover: Especially mountains!
  • No Social Skills: Zig-zagged. He's rather pushy about getting people to join his Mountaineering Club, but this is mostly because he's the only member (before he gets you to join), and because the club is in danger of being closed by the school. He loves talking about mountains so much that he assumes everyone loves them just the same, so he has a habit of talking over people and trying to get them to join the club. However, he does seem to have a decent level of insight into other people's feelings, and he gets along fine with Ashigara after some awkward first contact. That said, Zao still feels much more at home in the mountains than he does in urban life.
  • Temporary Online Content: Both his 3* and 4* versions are only available from the Black Snow On The Hot Spring Mountains event shop and the Distant Gendarme event shop, and are not part of the regular gacha. His 5* version has so far only been obtainable in the Distant Gendarme event gacha.
  • The Navigator: What his Sacred Artifact and his third eye allow him to do: his Rule of Traverse makes any terrain easy for him to navigate, no matter how harsh.
  • Third Eye: A metaphysical one rather than a real one, but a third eye nonetheless.


Chernobog

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fg_chernobog01.png
Lord of the Barren Mountain

Voiced by: Ken Narita

Chernobog was born from the silt and slush of Bald Mountain. Its protection of him has been both a blessing and a curse, as it provides him with all he could ever need, yet it freezes all who dare to enter his domain. As such, he is known in his homeworld as a Demon King.


  • An Ice Person: His Sacred Artifact is just snow, which can freeze anyone it comes into contact with instantly. Furthermore, he himself was literally born from the frozen mud of his home mountain, making him a sort of ice elemental.
  • But Thou Must!: After defeating Chernobog, the player has the option to choose to kill or spare him. If the player tries to spare him, Chernobog tells them they cannot, that there's no other way around this: he's a villain, and so he must be defeated by a hero, and they cannot say no. Deconstructed beautifully, as it turns out our protagonist has exactly the right powers to do the impossible and save Chernobog instead of either one of them dying.
  • Cradling Your Kill: A variation on this; when he freezes the protagonist into an ice pillar, he approaches the pillar and embraces them as they freeze to death inside of it. Thankfully, they got better.
    • Cradle of Loneliness: The reason he does this is because he'd given up on all hope of companionship and contact with another person; nearly all of his relations prior to this point have been people who are trying to kill him, but are doomed to freeze to death the moment they get too close to him. "Loneliness" doesn't even begin to describe it.
  • Death Seeker: In his debut, he challenges the main protagonist when he realizes they stand a chance against him, and begs them to kill him, as there doesn't seem to be any other way to save those he's already frozen. Fortunately, the protagonist has other ideas.
  • Fisher King: The mountain that he was born from reacts to his wishes and emotions, either by providing necessary comforts for him when he desires them or protecting him when he feels in danger. Unfortunately, it's a little overprotective, so it tends to go overboard with its judgement of the latter.
  • Fish out of Water: After he's released from the mountain, he's finally able to experience the world in full. He's extremely sheltered from living out his entire life isolated on an icy mountain and having barely any contact with other people, so basically every single modern concept in the world is totally new to him (an example being, when the protagonist tells him he should go to school with them, he asks "What's 'school'?").
    • Like a Duck Takes to Water: However, the foreignness of this new environment isn't going to stop him from enjoying all that it has to offer, and in all of his subsequent appearances in events feature him trying out something new, often simply for the fun of the experience, and a lot of other characters greatly appreciate his help.
  • Forced into Evil: He doesn't want to hurt anyone, truly. However, thanks to his overactive ice powers, he wound up killing more and more people, and the world soon began to see him as a villain; he was forced into that role by that perception.
  • I Cannot Self-Terminate: He tells the protagonist that the only way he can die is by being killed by someone else; he's already tried doing it himself.
  • Innocent Fanservice Guy: This man is only wearing a tiny armor chestpiece, a shortcape, armored boots, and what essentially amounts to a thong. However, when Bathym comments on this, Chernobog is totally oblivious to the attention this outfit might attract, saying it's simply what he always wears.
  • Musical Theme Naming: Chernobog's Rule ("Rule of Nightfall" in the original Japanese) and the mountain he was born from (Bald Mountain) are, together, a reference to Mussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain. The original story behind the musical piece is actually about worship of either Satan, or, in certain adaptations, the Slavic god of darkness, Chernobog, upon which this Chernobog is based.
  • Power Incontinence: Chernobog's snow automatically activates and freezes anyone who so much as intrudes upon his mountain. For his entire life, he's never been able to stop it from killing everyone who entered his mountain, which is why he became feared and hated.
  • Sinister Scythe: Summons a scythe made of pure ice in order to go toe-to-toe with the protagonist.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: The protagonist sees Chernobog's despair and loneliness, and refuses to kill him because of it, no matter how much he begs them to, because they can't bear to kill someone that they could save instead.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives one to Kamui, tearing into him for his part in the narrative they both are tied into; namely, for the fact that Kamui willingly trains and sends heroes to die against "villains" like himself.
    Chernobog: So let me ask, mentor of heroes. Why have no heroes been able to slay me?
    Chernobog: I hate you all. All of you who send in such weaklings who cannot stand against me.
    Chernobog: Why do I still live? Why have none even come so far as to lay a finger on me?
    Chernobog:The heroes whom you raised, whether they have come to my castle or not, have all fallen so trivially.
    Chernobog: You who partake in such a foolish endeavor as trying to create heroes... I hate you all.
    Chernobog: What meaning is there in this repeated futility? It has gained you nothing but a pile of corpses.
    Chernobog: For what purpose have I continued this slaughter? If there is a purpose, tell me!
  • Walking Wasteland: He claims that he can't even leave his mountain, as when he tries to leave, the land that he tries to enter becomes part of the mountain, and is therefore susceptible to his freezing, which means everyone there dies as well.


Shuten

Baseballer, No.4

Voiced by: Yuuhei Iwanaga

A Transient afflicted with oni curses from an Oni Mask Sacred Artifact that gathers the negativity of losers. Though an upstanding soul, his formidable looks invite fear. He never doubts what people tell him nor turns down requests. Due to his personality, he often harbors fugitives, and did so in his original world which caused the rulers there to designate him as a wanted crime boss guilty of plotting rebellion. He hates that particular ruler and subsequent retainers.


  • Batter Up!: His Weapon of Choice is a baseball bat, fitting as he is the leader of a school baseball team.
  • Oni
  • Reluctant Warrior: He is the head of a delinquent group consisting of more transients from his world who all look up to him (implied to be the Kabukicho Guild, however he has yet to appear in the main story). Despite their claims that he could take over the world if he wanted to, he prefers to play baseball for his school instead.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: One of many.

Weaving Tigress

Voiced by: Mariya Ise

A member of the track and field club at one of the city's most prestigious schools for sports, this Transient is known for her performance in the decathalon. Like her name, meaning The Inaccessible, once she has began to run, there is no one who can catch up to her. Constantly pursuing victory, she has a fixation with the number 1. Even though this hangup creates discord with those around her, she finds anything other than the number 1 trivial. On trains, she rides only the first car, and of course she uses only the locker numbered 1. Durga empathizes with others who share her obsession with the number 1.

Big Surfer

Voiced by: Wataru Takagi

A Transient from a world called Olympus. He is a surfer who happens to be a sea monster, with a gigantic body made of pure energy which accumulates quickly whenever he is still, causing him to grow even larger. As a countermeasure, he enjoys surfing. Every time he indulges, though, storms rage upon the high seas, causing trouble all around. This is not a result of malice and he is usually good natured and big-hearted. He's the type who never takes things seriously and can usually be found chasing tail at the beach.

A Transient from the other world Kitezh, glasses and a straw hat are his most prominent features. He has an easygoing and generous spirit, and has a rustic air about him that is soothing to anyone around him. His Rule is used to provide the blessings of the Earth to all, but that has given rise to a certain incident.

Tangaroa

Island Chieftain

Voiced by: Tetsu Inada

The Great Creator, Tangaroa, created an island world out of his own body, drawing from his own flesh and blood to bring life to its soil, foliage, and even the surrounding sky. Slightly overprotective, he longs for the happiness of all living creatures on his island, guiding them as a father and welcoming even visitors as his own children. Though the creation of his island used up most of his original flesh, he retains form as a Staff, a Sacred Artifact composed of his few remaining bones. Only a chosen warrior of the island tribe may possess the staff, which imbues its wielder with Tangaroa's memories, designating the wielder an incarnation of the Great Creator, and thus, leader of the tribe.

He’s also a dandy with a flair for grandiose terms and melodramatic overreactions. The guild to which he belongs is one that represents the underdogs, the hated, and the forgotten.

A Transient from the Land of Wa, Ebisu is an avid fisher. Everyone loves him for the earnestness with which he tries to take on any problem, though he fails just as often as he tries. He wants to live a peaceful life, but feels pressure when those around him praise him, saying he'll make it big, or that he's spurring on the fishing industry. Is running into an old acquaintance from his days aboard a treasure ship a streak of luck, or a sign that his luck has run out? Either way, a new adventure calls!

This gigantic, Transient buffalo spirit hails from the world of the Great Spirit. A high school senior at Yoyogi Academy and captain of the football team, he is a bit of an airhead who takes everything at face value.

Despite his flaws, however, he possesses strong leadership skills, earning him the affection and respect of his peers.

  • Lovable Jock: Friendly, encouraging and well-liked by his peers.

Gullinbursti

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fg_gullinbursti01_skin1_5.png
Hero's Guardian

Voiced By: Satoshi Hino

A Transient from the world of Yggdrasil. Created by his master, Freyr, to safeguard his sword for an upcoming war. When this war broke out, Gullinbursti was left home by Freyr along with his sword, though Gullinbursti eventually disobeyed this order, arriving just in time to watch Freyr die. He still keeps watch over this weapon, hoping one day to be reunited with his master.


  • Born of Magic: Gullinbursti was created by imbuing a body created by dwarves with the magic of his master, Freyr.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Gullinbursti is very strong, very brave, and very noble, but these qualities just aren't good enough in his own eyes. This is intensified by his inability to fully unleash the power of his sword. He wants to make Freyr proud, but doesn't realize his own poor view of himself is what holds himself back.
  • Homosexual Reproduction: As he was created using the power of Freyr, god of fertility, Gullinbursti is able to bear the child of anyone he couples with. Which he offers to do for the Main Character. The fact that he also specifies that he will be the one to bear any offspring also makes him Mr. Seahorse .
  • Identical Grandson: While there's no tangible confirmation of this, Gullinbursti states that any children he bears will be exactly like him in appearance and ability, to the point that he believes any offspring will essentially be him.
  • Inconvenient Summons: Reversed. Gullinbursti was accidentally summoned by the main character during the new year in the middle of visiting a shrine.
  • Legendary Weapon: The sword he carries belongs to Freyr. It's said to contain enough power in it that the wielder would be able to win any battle. Whenever it's in use, it shines with a brilliant light.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Gullinbursti is a boar. However, part of the intent when creating Gullinbursti was to have a Body Double available for Freyr, should he need it, so he was instead given a human form with minor boar-like qualities.
  • My Instincts Are Showing: Although in most of the time you're with Gullinbursti, he seems functionally human, he does show some animalistic tendencies.For instance, he charges into battle, runs everywhere he goes, and has a keen sense of smell. In his Valentine date, he even brings you mushrooms rather than chocolate or any other typical gift.
  • Temporary Online Content: Gullinbursti, like Agyo before him, is available only during New Year's events in his corresponding event shop.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Gullinbursti has an awesome boar mantle and a strap to fasten it to his body, however, this does nothing for his upper body and leaves his front Exposed to the Elements.


Behemoth

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fg_behemoth01.png
Converted Creature

Voiced By: Nobuyuki Hiyama

A Transient born in Eden and cast down to Gehenna. Great beast of the land. He is not as brutal as his looks suggest, basically a gentle person with good manners. He was originally an herbivore, but upon being summoned to Tokyo and happening upon a provocative aroma and flavor, he's become captivated by it. To fulfill his Role as a "Sacrifice" offered to the "places surrounded by walls," he possesses a oral cavity Sacred Artifact able to transform anything. Since he used to live by himself, he is unaware of when he is bothering others or being looked after by people. He thinks a bit about how he's indiscriminate with himself during meal times, and he admires those are gluttons like him but can show some control over that.


  • Apology Gift: His post-event scene involves going around delivering apology sweets to everyone he troubled during the sweets festival.
  • Emotion Eater: Although he is unable to taste food normally, he can taste the feeling put into a meal made by others meant to be sacrifices to their respective worlds including Surtr, Shino, and the player.
  • Extreme Omnivore: His mouth transforms anything that enters it into pure energy, meaning he is capable of eating anything up to and including an entire house in one of his worse feeding frenzies.
  • Fattening the Victim: His strange biology is deliberate on the part of his creators, he is meant to eventually grow so large he explodes.
  • A Good Way to Die: Resigns himself to this towards the end of his debut event. Having lost control and on the brink of exploding, he regains a brief moment of lucidity enough to be glad he got to taste something at least a little bit, that Ziz is there with him at the end, and that when he explodes his new friends will at least be shielded from him.
  • Heavy Voice: Has this in his fattened up skins, and his 4 star rarity.
  • Human Sacrifice: He, Ziz and Leviathan were all created as a trio sacrifice to gather energy for Eden's elite, his role being to consume anything and everything in his path and convert it into energy.
  • Inflating Body Gag: Happens several times during his debut event.
  • The Load: Sees himself as this to Ziz, as he knows his uncontrollable feeding frenzies cause her no small amount of grief. Compounded by the constant trouble he causes at the sweets festival until he's convinced near the end that it may be better for him to just accept the inevitable rather than continue to be a burden on everyone.
  • One-Track-Minded Hunger: Played for laughs initially, until Ziz later reveals his inherent need to constantly eat is in fact programmed into him by Eden, and a major source of pain for both of them.
  • Sense Loss Sadness: Although he was mentally programmed by Eden to be constantly hungry, he was cruelly denied a sense of taste and was unable to actually enjoy food or feel full. Due to Emotion Eater aspect mentioned above, he ended up finding out what he had been missing out on the whole time when he finally could taste food, which only exacerbated the problem.
  • Temporary Bulk Change: Behemoth operates on Looney Tunes physics: he'll become enormously fat in minutes from gorging on food, but work all the weight off just as quickly in one vigorous dancing session.
  • Vacuum Mouth: His charge skill effects shows a gigantic vortex, drags all enemies on the field forward and steals buffs from them, implying he pulled a Kirby on them.

Ziz

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fg_ziz01.png
Troublesome Trainee Teacher

Voiced By: Satomi Akesaka

A Transient born in the other world of Eden and cast down to Gehenna. Great bird of the heavens. She kindly watches over everything that lives in the lands, seas, and skies. If a lost child turns up, she soothes, encourages, and guides them. If a hungry child appears, she will treat them to handmade cooking and affectionate words. As a bundle of protective desires gone too far she is liable to become overprotective of someone she wants to protect. This is also a part of her role where she will one day destroy herself. Ziz is built to be satisfied with the kindness to wrap up damaged objects and looking after people devotedly. When she looks after someone especially slovenly she shows a heavy kind of dependence.


  • Appropriate Animal Attire: Goes pantless in her initial costume: her legs are shown to slim down significantly when she stuffs all those feathers into a pair of pants.
  • Barrier Maiden: Her primary method of attack and protecting allies and also her intended purpose in the sacrifice of Behemoth: she was to contain the explosion so that the surrounding area wouldn't be destroyed and Eden could collect the resulting energy, and die in the process.
  • Cool Big Sis: She plays the role towards Behemoth, and is also quick to ask her students to think of her as a big sister to depend on as well.
  • Cute Monster Girl
  • Gone Horribly Right: She was created by Eden to serve as a protector for Behemoth while he fed and gathered the energy he was to eventually be sacrificed for: they programmed that protective instinct a little too well, as when the time came she couldn't bear to let her friend die and escaped with him.
  • Harping on About Harpies: Judging by her thick bird legs, talon hands and fluffy neck plumage, she's only human looking from the neck up.
  • Human Sacrifice: She, Behemoth and Leviathan were all created as a trio sacrifice to gather energy for Eden's elite, her role being to make sure nothing interfered with Behemoth during the gathering process, and sacrifice her life to shield the rest of the world when Behemoth eventually overloaded.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: Behemoth became one to her after the loss of one of her friends, see below.
  • My Greatest Failure: Her inability to protect the third member of their sacrificial trio, Leviathan.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Her profile suggests her liking of Typhon stems from him closely resembling Leviathan.
  • Sensei-chan: Wishes to be this at the protagonist's school.
  • Together in Death: Resigns herself to this toward the finale of her debut event: as Behemoth grows more and more out of control threatening to explode if things continue. She plans to contain the explosion and die together with her dear friend until the heroes Take a Third Option.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: She tried to at first, when she escaped from Eden with Behemoth, but as both found themselves unable to go against their natures her faith began to waver.
