    SPiKA 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/spikalogo.jpg

A five-girl idol group highly popular in Morimiya.

Haruna Tendou

Voiced by: Aya Suzaki

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/haruna_3.jpg

One of the group's founding members with looks described as traditonally "like a heroine."


  • Friendly Rivalry: With Rion and Reika.
  • Hyper-Awareness: She recognizes Kou as the actor playing Morimaru because she can tell from his manner of speech and intonation.

Reika Kisaragi

Voiced by: Ayaka Suwa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/reika_8.jpg

One of the group's founding members.


  • Friendly Rivalry: With Rion and Haruna.
  • Gamer Girl: She’s one of Kou’s opponents in “Gate of Avalon,” though she takes her loss to him personally, even in the ending of the After Story.
  • The Perfectionist: Said to be harsh on herself and others because of it.
  • Sore Loser: She really does not take kindly to Kou beating her in Gate of Avalon, and will remain bitter about it for the rest of the story.

Wakaba Yuzuki

Voiced by: Ari Ozawa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wakaba.jpg

One of the two newer members along with Akira.


  • Token Mini-Moe: Among SPiKA, despite being the same age as Akira, she's still shorter and looks younger than her.

Akira Nanase

Voiced by: Mutsumi Tamura

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/akira_0.jpg

One of the two newer members along with Wakaba.


  • Gender-Blender Name: Akira is usually a boy's name, but this is mitigated somewhat by her being a Tomboy by nature.
  • Only Six Faces: She and Sora look similar to each other, with only their demeanor to differ them.
  • Pet the Dog: One of the quests in the Final Chapter has you looking for the members of the group. Akira had gone off to rescue a cat (the same one from Sora’s friendship event) when she gets attacked by Greeds, then saved by the XRC.
  • The Quiet One: If she does talk, it tends to be in rather brief sentences.

    Nemesis 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nemesissymbol.jpg

An organization dedicated to monitoring and managing the Eclipse. Nemesis was the first group that confirmed the Eclipse's being.

Mizuhara

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mizuhara.PNG

A pharmacist working at a Nemesis-affiliated pharmaceutical company. Besides working as an everyday employee at Sakura Pharmacy, he also does research on medicines made with ingredients from the Eclipse.


  • Taken for Granite: He gets pulled into the alternate Morimiya and is found frozen in Sakura Pharmacy. Kou and company frees him with an Affinity Shard's help.

    Zodiac 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zodiacsymbol.jpg

An organization dedicated to use the Eclipse for its own ends. It is a conglomerate of twelve major companies along with thousands of smaller companies that make up the "secondary Zodiac". One of the big twelve is the Hokuto Group.

Seijuurou Hokuto

Voiced by: Hirohiko Kakegawa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/seijuurou.jpg

Mitsuki's grandfather and the current leader of the Hokuto Group.


  • Final Boss: Serves as the final opponent in the "Gate of Avalon" minigame. Defeating him twice in succession nets you the strongest Wind-elemental Master Core.
  • Old Friend: With Sousuke.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: His previously intended successor, Mitsuki's father, whom we currently assume to be his son, died before the game's start, forcing him to remain in control until (as he hopes) Mitsuki succeeds him.
  • Promotion to Parent: Heavily implied to be this for Mitsuki, given that her father and mother died from the Tokyo Twilight Disaster. Additionally, he is grooming her to be the head of the family business, presumably in their stead.

Kyouka Yukimura

Voiced by: Chiaki Takahashi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kyouka_1.jpg

Mitsuki's secretary and a former member of Angraecum, Zodiac's Anti-Eclipse forces. Her work ranges from doing normal secretarial work to acting as Mitsuki's bodyguard.


  • Bodyguard Babe: She regularly trains in order to protect Mitsuki.
  • Bodyguard Crush: In the Epilogue, it's hinted that she might have a thing with Seijuurou, as she acts flustered when he offers to buy her a new pair of glasses.
  • Combat Stilettos: She wears a pair of formal high heel work shoes, which she uses to great effect when she needs to get up close and personal with potential threats to Mitsuki and Seijuurou. In Chapter 6, she incapacitates Mikuriya by directly kicking him in the face with her high heel before he could get his hands on Rion again, allowing her to apprehend him on the spot.
  • Cool Big Sis: She often times acts as this towards her younger superior, making her one of the few people Mitsuki is open with.
  • Retired Badass: She's a retired Angraecum member who now serves as the Hokuto's bodyguard and secretary, but is still capable of combat when she needs to. In the Final Chapter, she temporarily reunites with her group to make a last stand against the Greeds and allow the X.R.C. to break into Pandora.

Tomoaki Mikuriya

Voiced by: Hisayoshi Suganuma

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mikuriya.jpg

The 29-year-old heir to the Mikuriya Group, a company that is not one of the big twelve of Zodiac, but still exerts considerable influence. Mikuriya is a candidate for the position of leader of Zodiac.


  • Arc Villain: He's ultimately responsible for the events of both Chapter 5 and Chapter 6, with the former being just a test experiment for the latter. He aimed to control the Angel-type Grim Greed within Rion, all just to make his family name look good in front of the Hokuto Group and Zodiac.
  • Arranged Marriage: There are talks about possibly setting one up between him and 18-year old Mitsuki. He ruins it after messing with Rion in Chapter 6.
  • The Cavalry: In the Final Chapter, Mikuriya saves the heroes from a Breed of Dawn with the help of an attack helicopter equipped with Spirit Missiles, which lets them go on to Pandora.
  • Expy: Of Gilbert from Falcom's Sen no Kiseki series. They even share the same VA.
  • First-Name Basis: Addresses Mitsuki as "Mitsuki-kun", and likewise, she addresses him as "Tomoaki-san". After his scheme fails, she addresses him as "Mikuriya-san", showing that she's distancing herself from him. He still addresses her by her first name, albeit as "Mitsuki-san" instead.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After being saved by the party in the last chapter, as well as being tended to Rion, he decides to help clear the way for them by bringing a battle chopper to fend off a Breed of Dawn. After the battle, he pays for all the decorations and set-up for the Autumn Festival, truly showing that he's trying to atone for his mistakes.
  • Karma Houdini: Is disgraced, and loses his shot at being Mitsuki's husband, but otherwise suffers no serious consequences for triggering two Grim Greed incidents and nearly getting Rion killed. He still has enough power and wealth to deploy a battle helicopter in the final battle.
  • Narcissist: His profile describes him as such.
  • Please Don't Leave Me: Played for laughs in the After Story when it turns out that the fashion coordinator he’s been talking to online was Kaoru, with Kou leaving him to his fate.

Akane

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/akane.PNG
A woman working at Star Camera and also an engineer working for Zodiac.

  • The Engineer: Akane is one of Zodiac's top-grade engineers who works undercover in Star Camera, and provides tools and upgrades for the X.R.C. to help them out with the Eclipse regardless of their affiliation.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: She's often cold but polite as part of customer service, but every now and then, she shows some of her warmer side.
  • Taken for Granite: In the After Story, she and Tsubasa are frozen in the alternate Star Camera. Kou and company manage to free them with the help of an Affinity Shard.

    Allies 
The people from whom Kou and company can generally get help when it comes to the Eclipse.

Sousuke Kokonoe

Voiced by: Takayuki Sugo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sousuke.jpg

Kou and Towa's grandfather, a priest at the Kokone shrine, and head of the family's jujitsu style.


  • Old Friend: With Seijuurou. They've known each other since they were still students.
  • Old Master: He’s this to Kokonoe-style martial arts that neither Kou, Towa nor Sora can beat him in sparring matches.
  • Retired Badass: He was part of the group that helped destroy the Twilight Apostle during the disaster, and so he knows about the Eclipse.

Yukino

Voiced by: Chiaki Takahashi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yukino.PNG

A woman who owns an antique shop in Brick Alley and is also the one who provides Kou with various part-time jobs.


  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Yukino has a vast array of valuable information, and when push comes to shove, she'll even get involved directly and fight Greeds with special tarot cards. However, most of the time, she just wants to lay back in her store and do nothing. She even admits that she doesn't like doing shop business in-general, which got Kou thinking about why she decided to run a shop in the first place.
  • Death Dealer: Uses a deck of Tarot cards to fight the Greeds.
  • The Gadfly: She loves to tease Kou at every opportunity she gets because it amuses her.
  • Knowledge Broker: She's probably one of the most well-connected people in the game, having intel on everything and everyone in the Underworld. Kou even lampshades this at one point, sarcastically wondering if she has the whole city bugged.
  • Mysterious Past: Not much of Yukino's past is known outside of her work, but the game drops very subtle hints that her history and relationship with Kou could be more than just simple employer and employee. She seems to have known Kou for a very long time prior to the start of the game, and at one point in the After Story, Yukino "jokingly" refers to herself as being like an "older sister" to Kou, of whom she has been watching over. However, the exact details about their past relationship as well as how and when they first met are never revealed. Which combined with how mischievous Yukino is in front of Kou, leaves everything about her past up to the player's imagination.
  • No Name Given: Her last name is never shown. This by itself isn't too unusual, since other side characters get the same treatment, but when she's introduced with the name of her voice actress, only "Yukino" is shown.
  • Taken for Granite: In the After Story, Yukino gets frozen inside a crystal after she gets transported to Shadow Morimiya. She gets freed when Kou uses an Affinity Shard along with Jun's spell.

Mayu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mayu.PNG

An apprentice girl and granddaughter to the owner of Kuguraya.


  • The Blacksmith: While not quite on Jihei's level, she is slowly getting there thanks to his training, and she can pretty much do the same tasks as him. Her dream is to create the ultimate Spirit Arm for her friend Asuka in the future.
  • Genki Girl: Mayu is always so energetic and excited about creating Spirit Arms for anyone, especially the X.R.C.. Her energy may explain why she's able to handle Jihei's strict training methods.

Jihei

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jihei.PNG

A master smith who can make weapons, armors, and elements from Eclipse materials. He is also Mayu's grandfather, and he is training her to be a spirit arms craftsman.


  • The Blacksmith: He's held in high regard among the Underground because of his status of being the greatest Spirit Arms artisan in Morimiya. He can modify Soul Devices, synthesize elements from Eclipse materials, forge effective weapons and armor against Greeds, and during the Final Chapter, has created numerous barrier devices to keep the Greeds at bay and protect the citizens from harm.
  • Eyepatch of Power: He's always seen wearing an eyepatch over his right eye. It is presumed that he lost his eye in either an Eclipse or during the Tokyo Twilight Disaster.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While Jihei can come off as very rough, intimidating, and condescending to anyone he meets, especially towards his granddaughter Mayu, deep down, he still cares for the safety of anyone involved with the Eclipse. His heart of gold side even shows itself more in Chapter 5 when he visits Mayu at the hospital concerned about her health after she was taken away by the Grim Greed's Kin.

Yamaoka

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yamaoka.PNG

The proprietor of a Brick Alley cafe, and Asuka's landlord.


  • Chekhov's Gunman: For most of the story, he's only in the background and gives Kou some background information about Asuka. Later, it's revealed that since he helped develop the Xiphone's base technology, he knows about its special mode, which lets the user communicate with others even if there's no signal.
  • The Engineer: He was once Nemesis's head engineer, and worked to develop the Xiphone's base technology.
  • Sword Cane: He defeats a bunch of Greeds with a sword hidden in his cane.

Tetsuo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tetsuo.PNG

The owner of Joujima Musen, and an engineer who works independently from Nemesis and Zodiac.


  • The Engineer: He helps Kou and company upgrade their Soul Devices, and experiments with elements to make new ones.

Taizou

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/taizou.PNG

The owner of Daikokudou, a pawn shop in Houraichou.


  • The Rival: Seen as such by Kozue, the jewelry shop owner at Nanahoshi Mall.

Sanae

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sanae.PNG

A shrine maiden working at Kokonoe Shrine. She is affiliated with the Great Murakumo Shrine, but helps Kokonoe Shrine because of the two shrines' ancient ties. She usually is at Kokonoe Shrine selling fortunes.


  • Miko: Tamaki sees this as why she has a mystical feel to her.
  • Nice Hat: She wears one when traveling to Kokonoe Shrine, which fact poses an obstacle when Tamaki draws a picture of her and asks Kou to identify her.
  • Secret Keeper: As a Murakumo shrine maiden, she knows about the Eclipse, which fact Kou and Asuka learn from her in the Final Chapter.

    Acquaintances 
The people whom Kou and company are acquainted with. Some of them Kou and company meet during their many dealings with the Eclipse.

Aoi Shinomiya

Voiced by: Sayaka Maeda

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aoishinomiya.PNG

Yuuki's older sister and an art museum curator.


  • Cool Big Sis: Sora seems to think she's one to Yuuki, but he doesn't seem to like her constant doting on him.
  • Distressed Damsel: Her consciousness is stolen by an Elder Greed, and even after they free it, another one steals back before it can return to her.
  • Expy: If Yuuki is Elliot Craig, then Aoi is his older sister Fiona, with the doting affection taken to the next level, to the point of her seemingly having a brother complex.
  • Nice Girl: She's a very caring older sister, no matter how rude her little bro might be.
  • Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Trailer: She does not appear in any promotional material for the game, despite her role in Yuuki's story.
  • Your Princess Is in Another Castle!: In Chapter 3, Aoi gets spirited away into an Eclipse labyrinth after she receives a jarring prediction from God's App. Kou, Asuka, and Sora manage to defeat the Elder Greed and save her. But then another Elder Greed, which turns out to be the true perpetrator behind the App incidents, appears and steals Aoi's spirit (essentially her soul) into another labyrinth, leaving her body behind as an empty shell. Her spirit is returned to her body when the students along with Yuuki defeat the Elder Greed causing the incidents.

Eiji Gotou

Voiced by: Eiji Takemoto

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gotou.jpg

The young second-in-command of the Takahane Group.


  • BFG: In the Final Chapter, he wields a minigun loaded with spirit-enhanced bullets to mow down several Elder Greeds with. It's implied by Gorou that the minigun could be a smuggled weapon from the JSDF.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Comes to aid the party in the last chapter alongside Akihiro, taking out 3 out the 6 Elder Greeds.
  • Expy: Looks a lot like Kazuma Kiryuu.
  • Neighbourhood-Friendly Gangsters: Dealing drugs on Yakuza territory is a no-no, and when an Eclipse gang starts dealing, he tries to shut them down.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: For as shady as the Yakuza are (both in this game and in real life), this guy isn't a complete dick. He's open to hearing others out, will back down if presented with proof, and becomes a staunch ally of XRC once they help him prevent a turf war that would embroil all of Morimiya in violence.
  • Yakuza: He's the waka gashira of the Takahane Group.

Akihiro Inui

Voiced by: Shunsuke Kanie

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/akihiro.jpg
Click here to see him after he changes. 

The new leader of BLAZE who has sent the gang into a more radical direction since Shio left.


  • Advertised Extra: He received some notable pre-release advertisement, despite having no bigger a role than Chiaki or Aoi, who weren't advertised at all.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Back when Shio was still co-leading BLAZE, he called him "Aki", but he doesn't want to hear it from him now. Until his Heel–Face Turn, that is.
  • Arc Villain: Of Chapter 4. He tries to revive BLAZE in hopes of getting back at their rival gang CHAOS for killing their previous leader Kazuma a couple of years prior, and he's willing to use as many underhanded tactics as he can, like consuming a dangerous drug made from Eclipse ingredients to boost his strength. However, towards the end of the chapter, Aki overdoses himself to the point that he ends up being the focal point of an Eclipse labyrinth, and gets kidnapped by the same Elder Greed that supplied his gang the ingredients. By then, he becomes just as much a victim to the Eclipse as everyone else.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Comes to aid the party in the last chapter alongside Gotou, taking out 3 out the 6 Elder Greeds.
  • Break the Haughty: Getting dragged into the labyrinth "Xanadu" definitely counts.
  • Cardboard Prison: Downplayed. He’s in prison, but still surprises Kou as his opponent in Gates of Avalon.
  • Delinquent Hair: As a villain in Chapter 4, in contrast to flashbacks, where his head was shaved. His head is shaved in prison which is not only par for the course in Japanese prisons, but symbolic of him turning over a new leaf.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After Shio knocks some sense into him at the end of Chapter 4, he seems to finally learn his lesson. He later shows in the final chapter to aid the heroes.
  • Japanese Delinquents: He leads a group of them.

Shiori's father and the manager of the Books ORION shop at Station Square. He is a close friend of the Tokisaka family.

The flamboyant owner of a boutique shop at Brick Alley.


  • Camp Gay: Besides his flamboyant personality, it's stated that he hits on men whom he is interested in.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Because "Kaoru" is a unisex name, and because Kaoru's speech is rather feminine, Mikuriya thought that Kaoru was a woman when talking to him online. When he meets Kaoru in the flesh, he realizes his mistake, but by then, it's too late.
  • Taken for Granite: In the After Story, he gets kidnapped by the Twilight Apostle and is found frozen in his boutique shop. After he's freed, he's rather disappointed that Jun, who's wearing his Seal Knight outfit, isn't going to an awesome costume party.

Ryouta's father and the owner of Ibuki Grocery.


  • Family Business: He makes Ryouta help around the shop.

  • When You Coming Home, Dad?: She's rather upset that her dad's been ignoring her, even though the reason's that he's incredibly busy with his work (which he started focusing on when he wanted to leave Tsubasa alone, which ended up making things worse). Fortunately, the two reconcile.

  • Big Eater: Spends her time eating at the Lunch Box Festival, when she could've been working on her paper for the Music Academy. Fortunately for her, she manages to write about her participation in the Summer Festival with SPiKA.
  • The Piano Player: Is asked to be a keyboardist for the Summer Festival, which she gladly accepts.

  • The Lost Lenore: Acts as such to Gorou. The Twilight Apostle even makes an illusion of her to mock him.
  • Posthumous Character: Her death motivates Gorou not to let another Tokyo Twilight Disaster to happen, and so he plots to destroy the Breed of Dawn with Jun, aka, White Shroud.

Rem

Voiced by: Mai Kadowaki

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rem_1.jpg

A mysterious girl seen various times at many parts of the world. She seems to know everything about the Eclipse, but her willingness to talk is masked with her cryptic speech.


  • Actual Pacifist: The boss fight against the Five-Tailed Fox aside (since it was meant to test out the X.R.C.'s abilities), Rem prefers to not get directly involved with the Greeds, and simply observes the group from afar as they fight their way through the Eclipse.
  • Big Good: She's the only benevolent being from the Eclipse, and is actually responsible for giving Kou his Soul Device (and possibly the other Morimiya students too, excluding Asuka and Mitsuki). Overall, she simply observes the X.R.C.'s actions to see if they can overcome the challenges ahead and find their answers.
  • Bokukko: She uses "boku" in her speech.
  • Cool Mask: Rem carries a fox mask with her. And when she wears it, she can transform into the Five-Tailed Fox Greed.
  • Cute Monster Girl: It's hinted that Rem is actually a humanoid Greed.
  • Nice Girl: Mischievous though she might be, she's got good intentions, such as giving Kou his Soul Device, helping him rescue Shiori, and even appearing to a fledgling photographer to give him hope in his struggling career.
  • The Tease: According to Sousuke in a sidequest in the Epilogue, she likes to put innuendos in her riddles.
  • Time Stands Still: Rem has control over time to some degree, and she can freeze time on anyone who are not Wielders. She mainly uses this to privately discuss with certain people without interruptions though, and never uses it for combat purposes.

White Shroud

Voiced by: Kanae Ito

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/whiteshroud.jpg

A mysterious man in white that goes around Morimiya City taking care of the Eclipse. He is a member of Kronos Orden, an order of Seal Knights at the behest of the Church of the Holy Spirit.

For his true identity, see the entry on Jun Kohinata.


Armored Soldier

Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/armoredsoldier.PNG

An unidentified soldier who helps the White Shroud go through a strange manifestation of the Eclipse. He has a Soul Device in the form of a firearm.

For his true identity, see the entry on Gorou Saeki.


  • BFG: Uses one without any problem. His Soul Device also works as an ax.
  • Bottomless Magazines: His rifle has an endless number of bullets since it's a Soul Device.
  • Shocking Voice Identity Reveal: He takes off his helmet at the end of the Side Story, and the player can hear his true voice. The camera goes up to part of his face right before zooming out. It's a pretty big hint that Gorou is more than he seems.

    The Walking Spoilers 

Princess of Doom, Shiori

Voiced by: Ai Kayano

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screenshot_2018_11_26_tokyo_xanadu_ex_gmv_switchback_watch_tokyo_xanadu_ex_gmv_switchback_online_in_high_quality.png

The true form of the Shiori Kurashiki we see in the main game.


  • Big Bad: Of the main story.
  • Disappears into Light: Her fate after being defeated. However, Kou and his party manage to bring her back in the epilogue.
  • Doomy Dooms of Doom: Her title is "Princess of Doom".
  • Final Boss: Of the main game.
  • For Happiness: The reason for her existence in the first place. She doesn't want Kou to deal with the grief of losing a close friend, and created a ten-year long illusion to make him think that Shiori is still alive and well.
  • Ret Gone: In the normal ending, she disappears after getting defeated by Kou and his party and everyone who does not have affinity to "Xanadu" forgets her existence.
    • Cosmic Retcon: In the epilogue, she is brought back to life as the real Shiori Kurashiki, with everyone remembering her (and in fact, they forget that they forgot her). And as ex+ shows, this is the canon ending.
  • Sequential Boss: Transforms into a gigantic monster called the "Nether Beast" (ranked as a Class 4S Grim Greed) for the first phase, and then the "Princess of Doom", a Winged Humanoid (ranked as a Class 5 XXX Greed) for the second phase in Final Boss fight.
  • Stripperiffic: In contrast to regular Shiori, her outfit barely hides anything at all.
  • That Man Is Dead: Both literally and figuratively. The real Shiori died ten years ago, and she claims to Kou and the X.R.C. directly that the "Shiori" they have been spending time with for all this time, is just a lie to make Kou happy.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: The real Shiori died 10 years ago during the earthquake. The girl we've been seeing for most of the game is actually the result of a fusion between her and the Angel of Dusk. Needless to say, nobody, especially not Shiori herself, saw this coming until the big reveal.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She notes that the invention of the Xiphone lead to information being spread around the world faster, which caused her illusion of Shiori still being alive in Morimiya to clash with the rest of the outside world, which considers Shiori dead. The resulting paradox caused a massive increase in Eclipse activity making up the events of the game, so in order to fix this, Shiori attempts to drag all of Japan (and possibly the entire world) into Pandora's Box to keep the illusion going and stabilize the Eclipse. The problem is that it puts more people in danger of being killed by Greeds in the process, something that Kou and the X.R.C. will not stand by and let happen.

The Nine-Tailed Fox

Voiced by: ???

A giant fox-like being hidden within Morimiya.


  • Deus ex Machina: He only shows up just to give our heroes the chance to change a Bittersweet Ending into a happy one, and there's only a minor Foreshadowing about his presence in Yuuki's friendship event in the intermission chapter.
  • Kitsune: One with nine tails compared to the five tailed one fought the month before.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: His little Cosmic Retcon at the end of the Epilogue that negated Shiori's death? Yeah, it had the side effect of negating the Twilight Apostle's destruction 10 years prior, allowing it another attempt to wreak havoc on an even bigger scale. While also applicable to the heroes, it holds the most responsibility in this.
  • True Final Boss: As the boss of the Epilogue, he is this to the main story.

The Twilight Apostle/Specter of Twilight

Voiced by: ???

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/twilightapostle.jpg

A "Myth-Class" XXX Greed responsible for ravaging Tokyo 10 years prior to the start of the game.


  • Big Bad: It is the ultimate cause of the disaster 10 years ago.
    • Greater-Scope Villain: It was apparently destroyed not that long after it appeared. The most you have to deal with in the main story are brought about by its kin. eX+'s After-Story, on the other hand...
  • The Chessmaster: The Twilight Apostle has been manipulating the fates of all the X.R.C. members and their close friends throughout the whole game just so it can be reborn and cause destruction again. It's been able to reach as far back into the past in order to interact with the X.R.C. indirectly via the dark Eclipse gates, which explains why it's able to bypass the Cosmic Retcon despite technically not existing prior to the Epilogue.
  • Creepy Child: Takes this form for most of the After-Story. Specifically, it's based its appearance on 7-year old Kou.
  • Die Laughing: When it goes down for good in the After-Story.
  • Eldritch Abomination: A gigantic black shadow of monster that pretty much showed up out of nowhere, nearly destroyed Tokyo, and has the ability to warp reality (as shown with its ability to make a death "a lie").
  • Famous Last Words: Aside from the crazed laughter, it has this Wham Line to say before going out:
    "...Ahaha... It's just...as you said.., ...But...I just...... ...Don't...understand... —Ten years ago......Why......Why...Was I born...”
  • Final Boss: Of the After-Story as the "Specter of Twilight", making it the True Final Boss of eX+.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: Even though it’s the strongest Greed in the game befitting a True Final Boss, Kou feels it’s just like every other one they’ve killed by the thousands.
  • It Can Think: Downplayed: as Kou points out, it is capable of thought, but it still follows its instincts like an animal.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Its ultimate goal is to cause reality to unravel in such a way that it'll collapse in on itself. In layman's terms, it wants to destroy of all existence and everyone in it.
  • Power of the Void: It not only has void as an element, but wants to destroy the world to nothingness.
  • Psychopathic Man Child: Even after shedding its disguise, it still keeps the child-like voice and speech patterns (complete with referring to itself with the Japanese Pronoun "boku"), which gives off these vibes.
  • Reality Warper: The Twilight Apostle has total control over reality, and it can manipulate it in any way it pleases. It is also the creator of "Shadow Morimiya"; an alternate reality separate from the original Morimiya City.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: The only real physical difference between its disguise and young Kou.
  • Sequential Boss: After the Specter of Twilight's health bar is depleted the first time, it loses the lower half of its body (becoming even more aggressive in the process) for another fight. Taken even further during the After-Story's version of the fight, compared to the Boss Attack version, as you actually have to all 10 party members to battle it, for a grand total of 4 phases.
