Khun Aguero Agnes

Voiced by: Nobuhiko Okamoto (Japanese), Chris Hackney (English)

Tower Position: Light Bearer

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

The genius son of Khun Edahn, a noble Great Family leader who first climbed the Tower alongside King Jahad. Khun Aguero Agnes (Khun for short) is a member of the Great Khun Family's exiled Agnes branch, who had been tossed out due to their side not coming out with a potential Jahad Princess. In actuality, Khun had bended the events to his own desire by making sure that his kind half-sister, Khun Maria, got picked as the Jahad Princess over his actual Agnes sister. Despite being exiled, Khun's overall goal is to one day replace Khun Edahn as the new Great Family leader. Some time after, Khun gets summoned into the Tower.

In Season 1, Khun meets Bam during the 2nd Floor's first test, and deems him interesting enough to accompany and aid him while they climb the Tower. Rak also takes an interest, which eventually results in the three of them becoming true companions.

Season 2 has Khun form his own team away from the rest of the 2nd Floor graduation group in order to continue Bam's desire by helping the injured Rachel climb the Tower. After the team falls apart, he joins with Sweet and Sour to win the Workshop Battle and help Bam break away from FUG. Following the Workshop Battle, Khun reunites with Bam and Rak as the three of them work to board and traverse the Hell Train.

Season 3 has Khun newly awakened from his coma, and intent on supporting Bam on his goal of saving Jinsung Ha.


  • Abusive Parents: Khun's mother drove him to excel and be as ruthless and manipulative as she was. Until he'd had enough and used everything he'd learned to run away from home and 'borrow' a lot of expensive items from his father on his way out.
  • Adventurer Outfit: After the Time Skip, Khun sports one of these, reminiscent of a boy scout. It also comes with a Fedora of Asskicking.
  • Anti-Hero: He is extremely ruthless at times and could almost be considered a villain were it not for his strong loyalty to his teammates, especially Bam and Rak.
  • Bag of Holding: Manbarondenna, his bag he stole from his father. It can hold large amounts of items like his knives and swords and even suck up enemies. It can even make copies of objects placed inside, with the exception of materials from the 2nd Floor.
  • Badass Bookworm: Don't let his small frame and Light Bearer status deceive you, this guy knows how to fight.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Towards Bam. Rachel asks him to lie to Bam about her identity, and he does so, but to keep him away from her and protect him from the possibility of her betraying him. He spends years trying to get revenge on Rachel, believing her to have killed Bam.
  • Bishōnen: Khun is tall, slender and resembles his adoptive sister, Kiseia, quite a bit. He is noted by several characters to be very handsome.
    Miseng: He’s scary...
    Goseng: Usually, handsome guys are like that.
  • Break the Haughty: Khun has a very big ego, his cockiness and overconfidence brimming from his first appearances. He picks fights with the very rules of the tower and looks down on those who conform to it, going as far as to toy with them. However, he later learns that both the tower and the people in it are not to be underestimated. And he learns this lesson harshly.
    • The 3rd test of the Tower, the Door test, caused him to have a full-on meltdown in the anime. The Door test had decievingly simple instructions, requiring participants to open the “correct” door within 5 minutes with little to no hints. Hansung Yu, the test administrator, also directly meddled with Khun. In the anime, he sent someone out to provoke Khun and bring up his Dark and Troubled Past to put more pressure on the boy. Upon being reminded of how he was betrayed, Khun couldn’t bring himself to trust the simple instructions and opted to overthink them to the point of mental distress.
      • In the manhwa, Hansung Yu sent someone out to simply give hints to all the regulars. Khun’s meltdown wasn’t a meltdown at all, and while the text bubbles for his thoughts became more scattered and chaotic, his expression stayed relatively stable the entire time.
    • When Rachel was on the cusp of being disqualified for the tests due to her injuries, he thought of a way to give her a chance. He brings up the Administrator’s test, and manages to build a way for Bam to bring Rachel with him as they go up the Tower. Unfortunately, this very test would later become Bam’s seeming demise, leaving Khun with a heavy sense of guilt and helplessness.
  • Catchphrase: In the early series, it was "Trust trustworthy people." He never means himself.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Just because he is a Light Bearer, don't assume he is useless in close combat. He proves this with his knife-play against other Regulars during the Crown Game. He defeated Chang Blarode at some point in the past, and easily disposed of Sia Sia's assassin, in close combat.
  • Conscience Makes You Go Back: He chooses Bam in his second test because he "ended up caring again". Good for him, their friendship is something to behold.
  • Cruel to Be Kind: His response when Akraptor accuses him of being suddenly mean, seeing that unlike Bam, he wants Rachel dead.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: Why he decided to follow, and late stay with, Bam.
    "If something comes up where I have to put my life on the line to go with it, what meaning would the rest of my life have if I were to miss that? Right now I feel like...the end of the world will come if Bam isn't here."
  • Deuteragonist: The story focuses heavily on Bam, however when it isn't the perspective usually shifts to Khun's.
  • Did You Actually Believe...?: His recruitment of Edin plays with this. He first tells him he shouldn't have believed what he told him when he said everybody present was hired by him and it was just a lie to make him act in a certain way. After that, Edin gets away from Khun and ambushed by the barkeeper. Khun shows up again and says that Edin trusted him too easily again.
  • Fight Unscene: He had a fight with Blarode at some point during the timeskip, which resulted in the latter losing his eye.
  • Flash Step: Shown using it during The Crown Game using shinsu enhancement of his limbs.
  • Flechette Storm: Khun can send countless knives flying at enemies out from his Manbarondenna.
  • Fragile Speedster: When forced to fight. Subverted when it is implied he is much stronger than he appears on account of being descended from one of the Ten Families.
  • Guile Hero: He is extremely skilled at manipulating others. He even manages to outsmart a Ranker during Act 1.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Bam. Khun describes Bam as his most precious friend, and has gone through immense lengths to support Bam multiple times in the manhwa. They’ve stuck by each other’s side for years now, and Khun even states he felt as if the world would end without Bam around.
  • An Ice Person: He has an affinity for manipulating Shinsu into ice, though he never bothered to train it due to his resentment towards his father. He learns to form an ice spear and use it to unleash waves of ice.
  • Impoverished Patrician: Though his family is still one of the most influential ones in the Tower, his side branch got exiled and ended up impoverished after Khun Maria became a Princess of Jahad. Considering he wanted her to be that all along and made it happen, it was his own fault.
  • Improbable Weapon User: He uses his suitcase Manbarondenna as a shield and blunt weapon at times.
  • Indy Ploy: He's not a fan of these. At all. He'll go to great lengths to have stacked contingency gambits to avoid having to wing it totally blind. But, when your back's to the wall, you pull a Ship while not quite admitting to it.
  • In-Series Nickname: Other members of the Khun family refer to him as AA.
  • Insufferable Genius: Subverted. He has quite a big ego, but is a surprisingly decent guy the vast majority of the time. He can be quite deliberately insufferable to those he takes a dislike to, however, simply as a means of throwing them off their game. Or because Rachel — he goes out of his way to get under her skin because he just can't stand her.
  • Journey to Find Oneself: Why he started his journey up the Tower in the first place, and why he was drawn to Bam. After successfully making his sister a princess but still feeling dissatisfied, he decided to climb the Tower to search for what he really desired.
  • Just Toying with Them: In the Dallar Show, Khun and Rachel face off in a test where the winner is the one who catches a fish. Khun does a "The Reason You Suck" Speech, as part of which he suggests that Rachel can try to catch the fish first since it's obvious he's going to win anyway. He's right, too, since the fish is not as harmless as it looks.
  • Knife Nut: His Weapon of Choice, storing countless knives inside his suitcase. He later gains the White Heavenly Mirror, a magical knife that can seal targets inside of it.
  • Knight Knave And Squire: The ruthless, pragmatic Knave to Rak's shrewdly idealistic Knight and Bam's inexperienced, naive Squire.
  • Knows a Guy Who Knows a Guy: Despite his sudden exit from the Khun Family, he has managed to maintain a good relationship with an unknown member of said family who holds a lot of power. This family member appeared at the 37th Floor's Wooden Horse train station in order to stun the express long enough for Bam's group to board the Hell Train in time.
  • Last-Name Basis: Everyone just pretty much calls him by his family name, Khun. Even his teammates and Bam, his closest friend, just use his last name. The few times his first name is uttered are when someone calls him by his full name. Though Khun is estranged from his family, he still seems proud of his heritage and has never objected to just being called Khun.
  • Loophole Abuse: Aguero spends most of his time trying to subvert the Tower's rules, with mixed results.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He is extremely skilled at manipulating others. Not even High Rankers are safe from this guy's ability to outwit others.
  • Mission Control: He is a Light Bearer.
  • My Greatest Failure: He may not act like it, but he does feel bad about what happened between him and his adoptive sisters. His oldest was set up to be a candidate for Princess of Jahad, but because he helped Maria win the title, his sister was so broken up that she killed herself in shame. Kiseia hated his guts for the incident, and it's for this reason his Sworn Enemy on the Hidden Floor is her.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Sergio "Kun" Agüero, Argentinian football player. Word of God says that the color scheme of the Khun family was inspired by the Argentinian flag after naming Aguero after Agüero.
  • Not So Different:
    • Khun is just as dedicated to Bam as the latter was to Rachel, sometimes to extremes
    • With Hwaryun as well, with the two both being intelligent individuals who use their cunning to help Bam in anyway they can. Though they do have conflicting approaches in how they go about it.
  • The Proud Elite: Despite his immediate family's disgraced status, so much so. Khun is as cocky as they get, and Hatz calls him out for this.
  • Pragmatic Hero: Khun doesn’t hesitate to make sacrifices for his goals, such as helping White regain his full power, and coming up with especially devious plans. His more cruel side definitely comes out when it comes to Rachel, being fond of giving The Reason You Suck Speeches to her. However, at his core, Khun isn’t a bad person. A lot of his actions are lead by morally good intentions, or the goal of supporting Bam.
  • Psycho Sidekick: Bam is a decent, idealistic fellow who aptly describes his Best Friend Khun as a Devil.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Khun is the Blue Oni to Bam’s Red Oni. Whereas Bam is an enthusiastic, passionate and emotional hero, Khun is a cool-headed, introverted and pragmatic strategist. The color red is ever-present in Bam’s appearances in regards to his powers and fashion, while Khun’s forefront color always stays blue due to his hair and outfits.
  • The Smart Guy: Most likely to form (working) plans out of act 1 Regulars.
  • Smug Snake: Prior to his Character Development before truly befriending Bam and Rak he had shades of this. Still there by season two, but less obvious, and only tends to come out when he is assured of his victory.
  • Squishy Wizard: Subverted. He has said the only reason he's a Light Bearer is because he likes to give orders, and he's more than capable in close combat.
  • Swiss Army Weapon: Manbarondenna.
  • Technician vs. Performer: The technician to Bam’s performer. Khun is an extremely perceptive and analytical strategist, opting to outwit his enemies from the sidelines rather than fight them head-on. And while he enjoys his role as lighthouse, he strives to improve himself not entirely because of his enjoyment, but because he wants to catch up to Bam.
  • The Lancer: Khun is The Lancer to The Hero, Bam. He acts as a foil, whereas Bam would rush into situations and prioritize everyone's safety above all else, Khun stays cool-headed and cruelly pragmatic. He doesn't hesitate to sacrifice people or use questionable tactics, such as helping White reach his final form, to further his own goals. But, in spite of their differences, they are undoubtedly each other’s best friend and most trusted confidant.
  • The Strategist: Khun is undoubtedly the brains of the main cast. In every arc he’s featured in, he brings down his adversaries through tricks and clever gambits. His position is even that of a lightbearer, a role that stays on the sidelines and guides their teammates.
    Hwaryun: So, what do you think? You’re Bam’s strategist, right?
  • The Team:
    Original Trio: Khun, Bam and Rak.
    Hide-and-Seek Team A: Khun, Anaak, Shibisu, Hwaryun, Lauroe, Aleksai, Blarouse, Sunwoo, Rozeal, Kancho, Goon, Erik, Leon 3, and First Emperor.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Khun, Bam, Rachel, Rak, Endorsi, Anaak, Shibisu, Lauroe, Hatz, Aleksai, Blarouse, Chunhwa, Sunwoo, Levin, Paracule, and Ghost.
    Khun's Original Season 2 Team: Khun, Rachel, Ran, Nobic, Dan, Gyetang, Apple, and Michael.
    Khun's Workshop Team: Khun, Viole, Rak, Wangnan, Dan, Ehwa, Akraptor, Goseng, Miseng, Prince, Blarode, and Quaetro.
    Khun's Hell Train Team: Khun, Wangnan, Ehwa, Akraptor, Miseng, Prince, Blarode, and Quaetro.
    Bam's Hell Train Dallar Show Team: Khun, Bam, Rak, Wangnan, Ehwa, Hwaryun, Boro, Aka, Sachi, Hanool, Danhwa, Moontari, Bero, Iruroe, Pompidou, and Vicente.
    Bam's 43rd Floor Expedition Team: Khun, Bam, Rak, Ehwa, Hwaryun, Boro, Sachi, Danhwa and Iruroe.
    Bam's 43rd Floor Team: Khun, Bam, Endorsi, Hwaryun, Boro, Sachi, Iruroe and Hockney.
  • Took a Level in Badass:
    • Thanks to his training with Evan Edroch aboard the Hell Train, Khun manages to combine his efforts with Beta to upgrade his Lighthouses using a Enna Core upgrade-kit.
    • The Hidden Floor arc makes it quite clear that Khun's been holding off on the power within himself that was passed down from his father, Khun Edahn. His training within said arc is Khun needing to accept that his father's power is part of him, which allows Khun to use his father's ice powers, as well as utilizing ice spears in a similar manner as a Spear Bearer.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Bam.
    • Khun initially befriended Bam since he seemed useful, but after spending more time with him, Khun found himself drawn to boy. He saw himself in him, and enjoyed his company greatly, causing Khun to go out of his way to support Bam in season 1.
    • This would later extend past Bam’s “supposed” demise, where Khun spends 6 years plotting revenge against Rachel for her role in Bam’s death. After it’s revealed Bam was still alive, Khun returns to his role as Bam’s strategist.
    • It becomes more and more evident that Khun worries about whether or not he can catch up to Bam considering his insane power developments. Khun trains in the Data arc and even learns how to act as Spearbearer to improve himself.
    • Upon waking up from his coma, Khun immediately asks where Bam is. He later sulks over being asleep while Bam was going through hardships for the past two years.
    Michael: Khun Aguero Agnes… you were always like that even when you were with us.
    Michael: All you ever cared about… was Bam.
  • Weapons That Suck: His bag Manbarondenna can suck up Shinsu attacks in mid-air. It even proves it self surprisingly effective against shapeshifters by sucking them up mid-transformation.
  • Why Am I Ticking?: While pretending to heal him, Rachel plants a bomb in his heart. She detonates it at the worst possible moment for him.
  • The Worf Effect: He gets hit with this often throughout Season 2 when it comes to playing Xanatos Speed Chess with FUG and Rachel. Yet, still comes back swinging... Justified: he's found himself playing on their terms with little to no knowledge about how they've set up the board. A Regular playing against Rankers is at a natural disadvantage, Great Family or not. It's actually a great achievement not to get all his contingencies and tricks utterly wrecked in under ten minutes, given the scale of the divide.
  • Xanatos Speed Chess: He kind of has to. Any chessmastering he does tends to hit unforseen snags to work around or within. A lot. This is not usually due to a lack of forward planning, but often because he's playing well outside the normal Regular leagues. Expect him to break out the odd Batman Gambit and Indy Ploy on top of any other contingencies in play.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: White, with a blue tint.

    Rak Wraithraiser 

Rak Wraithraiser

Voiced by: Kenta Miyake (Japanese), Matthew David Rudd (English)

Tower Position: Spear Bearer

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tog_rak.png
Click here to see Miniature Rak 

A giant battle-hungry anthropomorphic alligator who loves to fight, compete, and hunt the powerful. Rak is generally a strong, and pretty straight forward guy with a lot of street wisdom. He also tends to label his prey, and friends, as "turtles," and has a strange liking for bananas. Overall, Rak's a great source of the series' awesome-sauce and comedic hijinks.

In Season 1, Rak is introduced during the 2nd Floor's first test searching for worthy prey, and decides that Bam and Khun will make for good opponents. However, he ends up unwillingly becoming a team with said prey during the fight. As he goes about completing the rest of the 2nd Floor tests, Rak begins to enjoy his time spent with his new teammates, and eventually comes to see Bam and Khun as his true companions.

During Season 2, Rak continues to climb the Tower, but ends up splitting away from the rest of the 2nd Floor graduation group with Paracule being his only other notable company. He then reunites with Khun at the Workshop Battle to help Bam break away from FUG. Rak ends up disappearing from the group after falling off the Name Hunt Station bridge, but mysteriously reappears within the hidden Tower Floor. There, he learns that he has the power to control stone, and is a possible descendant of Tower's Native Ones.


  • Arc Villain: He fought against Bam and Khun during the first 2nd Floor test believing them to be worthy prey. However, he became part of their group after the second test forced them into making a 3-man-team.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Wraithraiser. Or Wreckraiser, depending on translation. Of course, the original Korean pronunciation is probably closer to "Rak Lacration," which isn't... quite as awesome.
  • Badass Boast: "A game without me... Is a game not worth winning!"
  • Badass Cape: Not that a 4 meter bipedal alligator with a 5 meter spear would need an imposing red cape.
  • The Big Guy: Second biggest of the season 1 cast (after Ghost) with physical strength to match. He's still one of the biggest of any season 2 crew he's in, even when he's kicking back in travel-size, later.
  • Blade on a Stick: Fights with a spear.
  • Blood Knight: His sole reason for entering the Tower is to find interesting people to fight.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: He is Badass and wants you to know it.
  • Book Dumb: He has no idea of the basics of the Tower or weapons, but has an intuition and empathic intelligence that is incredibly accurate.
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: Although he comes off as a Blood Knight at first, he's actually one of the more compassionate people in the cast. Despite what he is, he still cares deeply for Khun in season 2. And that's nothing compared to finding (and confirming the existence of) the Black Turtle.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: It's easy to underestimate him, given his hijinks and personality, but he was one of the best Spear Bearers of the E-rank Regulars, and considerably more perceptive than he looks.
    • Despite hamming it up and complaining during his Spear Bearer training, Rak managed to match Ghost in the next to impossible feat of hitting an extremely distant target, earning an instant pass to the final test.
  • Cry Cute: No, we're not lying. Gushers of cute. Rak doesn't mind wearing pink when it's important.
  • Determinator: Doesn't care about what is in the way or if he says he can't come back yet, Rak will bring Bam back.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: He has an affinity for manipulating shinsu into earth.
  • Egomaniac Hunter: Claims he doesn't care about climbing the Tower in the first season, he only wants to hunt the strong. He expands his horizons to keeping and caring for a number of his hunts. Even if Paracule doesn't really count as proper prey.
  • The Fettered: His principles and integrity are pure.
  • Fight Unscene: The remainder of Rak's fight with Arie Inieta after the alligator finally returns to his normal size ended up happening off-screen. One can only assume that the Arie member was able to defeat Rak thanks to obtaining Danhwa's ignition sword, Krishna.
  • The Heart: Yeah, despite being a hunter and pretty abrasive, he is one of the most decent and inspiring characters next to Bam, living a life in absolute honesty.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • For someone considered a dumb muscle, he is surprisingly perceptive at times. For instance, he was one of the only people to realize that Aguero was faking his sudden rejection of Bam in order to manipulate everyone else into supporting him. Also, early on, he seems to have noticed how suspicious it was that Bam didn't know how the artificial "sky" for each Floor worked, which even Khun didn't catch.
    • Although he complained vociferously about being chibified at first, it didn't take him long to start noticing the upsides in having two modes to choose from. Fitting himself to common furniture easily is only one of the uses he's found...
  • Hunting the Most Dangerous Game: His goal in the beginning.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: Anytime Rak decides to get out of his chibi form, asskicking ensues.
  • In-Series Nickname: Gator.
  • Knight Knave And Squire: The shrewdly idealistic Knight to Bam's inexperienced, naive Squire and Khun's ruthless, pragmatic Knave.
  • Large Ham: All over the place, but special mention goes to the Crown game.
    "OF COURSE! A GAME WITHOUT ME IS A GAME NOT WORTH WINNING!"
  • Lizard Folk: The large, bruising kind.
  • Manchild: Rak is clearly at the age where he is old enough to climb the tower but he frequently behaves like a toddler. He throws a tantrum in the door test, frequently eats childish food, and has the childish appetite for chocolate bars.
    • Note that these instances are from the anime (In the webcomic he doesn't start climbing on the walls in the door test- only impulsively opens a door, and also his favorite food is bananas not chocolate bars), which played up his role as comic relief while omitting some of his more serious interactions for the sake of pacing. Not that he's very mature in the source material either, he's just not Manchild level.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Wraithraiser.
  • The Nicknamer: Tends to call people "turtles". The Jahad princesses are exceptions: Anaak is "pesky lizard" and Endorsi is "ghostly eyeballs".
  • Noble Savage: A giant bipedal alligator who may be a hammy Blood Knight, but nobody is as fair, honest, straight to the point and in tune with himself as he is.
  • Only One Name: Rak is the only part of his name given, Wraithraiser is actually the name of his entire race.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: During the Workshop Battle, he stays in chibi form, wears a cloak and a bird mask, and takes an alias. Bam isn't fooled.
  • Put on a Bus: Falling off the Name Hunt Station bridge left Rak unable to continue with Bam and Khun to the 43rd Floor of Death. However, he mysteriously reappears in the Hidden Floor that comes after the Floor of Death.
  • Sizeshifter: He eventually gains space compression permits that let him reduce his scale to avoid causing problems in the Tower.
  • Sleep-Mode Size: A giant 15 foot tall alligator man who towers over just about every single cast member. Because he is so tall, the organization controlling the tower gives him the special ability to make himself extremely short to get around in areas he otherwise wouldn't fit. When he enters combat, he can instantly change back to his true height.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Is it Wraithraiser or Wreckraiser or Lekreisher? Apparently, it is actually Lacration. A lot of people pointed out that this sounds like Lactation.
  • Super-Deformed: When chibified by Yu Hansung. Despite what started out as a curse, Rak eventually learns to do the size-changing trick himself by Season 2 where he had obtained a Compression Permit from the Tower's Guardians. All the better to stalk sneaky turtles.
  • The Team:
    Original Trio: Rak, Bam, and Khun.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Rak, Khun, Bam, Rachel, Rak, Endorsi, Anaak, Shibisu, Lauroe, Hatz, Aleksai, Blarouse, Chunhwa, Sunwoo, Levin, Paracule, and Ghost.
    Rak's Season 2 Team: Rak and Paracule.
    Khun's Workshop Team: Rak, Khun, Viole, Wangnan, Dan, Ehwa, Akraptor, Goseng, Miseng, Prince, Blarode, and Quaetro.
    Bam's Hell Train Team: Rak, Bam, Hwaryun, Boro, Hanool, and Hana.
    Bam's Hell Train Dallar Show Team: Rak, Khun, Bam, Wangnan, Ehwa, Hwaryun, Boro, Aka, Sachi, Hanool, Danhwa, Moontari, Bero, Iruroe, Pompidou, and Vicente.
    Bam's 43rd Floor Expedition Team: Rak, Khun, Bam, Ehwa, Hwaryun, Boro, Sachi, Danhwa and Iruroe.
  • Temporary Bulk Change: He gets shrunken to half a man's height because he accidentally bumps into Yu Hansung and didn't apologize, instead making comments about how small and unnoticeable he was. So Yu Hansung kept bumping into the chibified Rak over and over, saying how he was so small he didn't notice him. Justified in that Compression is an often used supernatural technique in this series.
  • Tender Tears: Cries when he meets up with Bam again in Season 2, having thought up until then that his favorite turtle was dead.
  • Took a Level in Badass:
    • He obtains a better Blade on a Stick when he purchases the "Mad Shocker" spear during the Workshop Battle.
    • The Hidden Floor arc has Rak eating rocks in an attempt to try to find some way to power up. Constantly eating rocks ends up teaching him how to turn his body into solid rock, which increases his strength and defense. So far, Rak's primarily been able to transform his arms.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Loves bananas, for some reason. Apparently likes them a lot but has a lot of difficulty peeling them.
  • Tsundere: Oh, so deliciously so for his prey.
    "Without this weapon, you have no purpose! Of course I didn't get this because I cared about you or anything!"
  • Typical Cartoon Animal Colors: Averted. He's brown, like a real alligator, instead of green like most cartoon crocodilians.
  • Undying Loyalty: He becomes this to Bam and Khun after becoming true companions. He was heart broken when he found out that Bam was dead and years later after finding out that the possibility of Bam being alive might exist, Rak has been doing everything in his power to find him. When he does find him, he sheds tears of happiness and affectionately embraces him.
  • Verbal Tic: You damn Turtles! Turtles, I say!
  • Vitriolic Best Buddies: With Aguero. Stick them in a room for ten minutes. Insert earplugs. Watch antics. However, try undermining their relationship... we dare you.

    Endorsi Jahad 

Endorsi Jahad

Voiced by: Rie Suegara (Japanese), Jeannie Tirado (English)

Tower Position: Fisherman

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

A haughty, cynical, self-centered woman who was chosen as a Jahad Princess due to defeating all the adopted recruits in her Great Family to eventually being at the top of the food chain. She was considered one of the top-5 E-Rank Regulars alongside Anaak, Ran, Blarode and Baragav.

In season 1, Endorsi quickly establishes herself as one of the strongest Regulars during Bam's appearance on the Floor of Tests given her Jahad Princess status. However, throughout the 2nd Floor, she develops a caring, yet vitriolic relationship, with Anaak due to actually wanting to help the Fake Princess climb the Tower, who Endorsi is technically an aunt for. Her interactions with Bam also results in her becoming friendlier with the rest of the core group, as well as gaining a romantic interest in him to the point of wanting Bam to be hers at any chance she gets.

In season 2, Endorsi climbs the Tower with Shibisu's 2nd Floor graduation team. She supported the team at Workshop helping Bam break away from FUG, but ended up losing her name to Kaiser of the Hell Train's Name Hunt Station in an attempt to protect Anaak from being hunted by the Lo Po Bia Family. The result of Endorsi's name being stolen is Shibisu's team being at war with the people of the station. After Bam made a deal with Kaiser to have Endorsi's name given back to her, Endorsi joined up with Bam's Hell Train group in order to meet with Garam Jahad on the Floor of Death.


  • Action Girl: Endorsi proves herself to be one of the more powerful Regulars of the Floor of Tests saga. She retains this status in season 2, going toe-to-toe with the strongest E-Rank Regular, Mad Dog, in the Workshop Battle.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Almost every moment when she uses the shinsu technique "Chiffon Sword" counts as one.
  • Broken Bird: Her experiences trying to earn the right to become a Princess left her quite bitter.
  • The Big Guy: Small frame, but stronger than Rak.
  • Character Development: Her interactions with Bam and Anaak have really had an effect on her self-caring persona although after Bam's alleged death it reverted back to a larger degree. In Bam's case, she ends up developing feelings for him.
  • Combat Stilettos: Subverted. Twice, they are successfully attacked to throw her off-balance, causing her to abandon wearing them altogether.
  • Cool Big Sis: She gradually grows a soft spot for Anaak and Bam. She also gains a rather aloof one in the form of Yuri Jahad. But, neither will ever admit it, and will constantly appear to be at very loud loggerheads to most outside observers.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: She and Ghost vs. 2nd Floor Regulars.
    • Then she ends up on the receiving end of this, courtesy of Ren.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: She isn't a real Ice Queen, since she is rather outgoing, but she keeps her feelings to herself, views others as tools and steps over bodies to reach her goals. And then she meets Bam.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Everyone she teleports reacts like they're lucky to survive.
  • Dude Magnet: She was voted as "the #1 girl I'd like to date before I die".
  • Femme Fatale: Noted to be alluring and deadly at the same time by people who observe her fighting.
  • The Fighting Narcissist: Thinks herself to be highly beautiful so if you kick her in the face, make sure it finishes her off. Problem is, thanks to how strong she is it isn't easy.
  • Go-Getter Girl: Going through training that boiled down to 'achieve or starve' led her to become this.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Rachel has thoroughly earned everyone's hatred, but Endorsi's hatred for her is at a personal level due to being jealous of how obsessed Bam is with her, even if his obsession isn't romantic.
  • Immortal Immaturity: She didn't become a Regular until she was around 300 years old, but she acts like a mildly sociopathic, hyperactive teenager, refusing to take responsibility, freaking out whenever someone accidentally implies she's not the prettiest girl around, and kicking people in the head when she's displeased.
  • Large Ham: On occasion, especially when people aim attacks at her face.
    "Your crime of attempting to kick the almighty Endorsi's face is appalling! For that, I shall punish you!"
  • Lightning Bruiser: Tends to go for very fast and very hard hitting strikes when fighting; since most people can't handle a Jahad Princess at that level it's all she needs most of the time.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: She possesses a set of flying shields that protect her very well, until she faces off against Hong Chunhwa's Narumada, which breaks them. Having lost her defence, she quickly beats him up and borrows his sword.
  • Mutual Envy: She is jealous of how devoted Bam is to Rachel and would gladly give up her princess privileges, which were pretty much forced on her, to be with him. On the opposite side, Rachel wants to be special and is jealous of Endorsi for being a beautiful princess like a fairy tale heroine, while her feelings towards Bam are mixed at best and consist mostly of envy.
  • Older Than They Look: About 300 at the start of season 1.
  • One-Man Army: Able to massacre 197 other Regulars on the Second Floor, along with Ghost.
  • Out of Focus: She ended up as this during the Hidden Floor arc due to the Snake Charmer being her "sworn enemy." The Snake Charmer kept her locked down from being able to perform any role for the Story Arc, which basically left Endorsi sitting around while things were going on all around her on the Hidden Floor.
  • Rebellious Princess: She is actively considering the possibility of deserting the princesses of Jahad, since King Jahad strictly prohibits them from forming relationships with men on penalty of death and she has a crush on Bam, who poses a big threat to King Jahad's rule.
  • Ship Tease: She loves Bam,so it's not a secret to anyone (except for Bam). Things so go far that she declared herself as Bam's girlfriend, by side of Bam, either you are not interested or do not know what she is talking about, although recently Bam seems less naive about it and never reject her display of affection, and she most closed of the girls teases with Bam.
  • Smarter Than You Look: Appears to be an arrogant and vain woman at first glance, however she is really intelligent and is a quick thinker in the middle of combat.
  • Super Toughness: When fighting Viole and Traveller, she takes a large number of anti-tank explosives directly to the face and comes out with nothing more than frazzled hair and mild annoyance.
  • The Team:
    Crown Game Team: Endorsi, Rachel and Ghost.
    Hide-and-Seek Team B: Endorsi, Bam, Michelle Light (Rachel), Hatz, Hoh, Serena, Shopin, Chunhwa, Death Ryan, Mauchi, Paracule, Levin, Full Black, and Grey.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Endorsi, Bam, Anaak, Shibisu, Khun, Rachel, Rak, Endorsi, Lauroe, Hatz, Aleksai, Blarouse, Chunhwa, Sunwoo, Levin, Paracule, and Ghost.
    Team Shibisu: Endorsi, Anaak, Shibisu, Hatz, Lauroe, Aleksai, Vespa, and Verdi.
    Bam's 43rd Floor Team: Endorsi, Bam, Khun, Hwaryun, Boro, Sachi, Iruroe and Hockney.
    Bam's Hidden Floor Quarantine Team: Bam, Endorsi, (data human) Yu Hansung, Batis.
  • Teleport Spam: Uses teleportation in battle by using Bong Bong to teleport herself and Baragav hundreds of meters into the air, then kicking him into the ground, causing some damage even to the Made of Iron Mad Dog of Yamah.
  • Teleportation: Her teleporter tool, Bong Bong.
  • Tsundere: Very much so towards Bam.
  • Weaponized Teleportation: She pulls this off spectacularly be using her Bong Bong to kick her opponent into the dirt from hundreds of meters into the air.

    Hwaryun 

Hwaryun

Voiced by: Yōko Hikasa (Japanese), Laura Post (English)

Tower Position: Guide

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hwaryun_anime.png
CLICK for Hwaryun's masked appearance up to the end of the Crown Game 

A Red Witch Guide that helps certain people climb the Tower Floors. Viewing Bam as her "god," Hwaryun has remained a major support for his development and climb up the Tower.

In season 1, Hwaryun is introduced as a mysterious character wearing a mask and tight neoprene suit during the Crown Game, and dominated the last round until Bam slashed her face with shinsu. Since then, Hwaryun's wears an eyepatch, let her hair down, and pretends to take part in the wave controller class alongside Bam. In the epilogue, it's revealed that upon Rachel's arrival into the Tower, Yu Hansung had tasked Hwaryun to serve as Rachel's Guide to help the latter safely climb the Tower. She also turns out to be a member of FUG, and recruited Bam into the organization after Rachel betrayed him.

In season 2, Hwaryun continues to watch over Bam as he climbs the Tower as FUG's leader, Jue Viole Grace. By the time of the Workshop Battle, it turned out that she's been working for the FUG faction that supports Viole rather than Karaka's side that's trying to kill him, and helps Bam break away from the terrorist organization with the powerful Thorn at hand. After Workshop, she continues to guide Bam by helping him board the Hell Train express to chase after Rachel, and supports Bam's companions on the Floor of Death in order to have them fight against Hell Joe, who Hwaryun holds a major grudge against. Though this ends up being a ploy of hers, and in reality her main goal was obtaining the soul-stirring laddle in order to trade it for another Thorn frament for Bam. She uncharacteristically does not accompany them into the Hidden Floor, but plays a vital role in helping everyone escape when Jahad's forces come to kill everyone on the Hell Train.

In season 3, she has gone her separate ways from Bam's group, for reasons even Khun has no idea about. She comes back from her "personal trip" after the events at The Wall of Peaceful Coexistence and is willing to help Bam save his Master.


  • Affectionate Nickname: Calls Bam "My God" despite knowing how much it irks him. She uses informal language when saying it in contrast to other characters who use respectful wording, so it comes across more like a nickname than a sign of devotion. Has also referred to him as "My Stupid God" on occasion.
  • Almighty Janitor: While being a Guide is a very special position, it doesn't really say anything about her authority or place in FUG, with Reflejo- one of Karaka's minions, calling himself her superior near the end of the Workshop Battle. Despite this, she's casually held a call with Grace Mirchea Luslec, the head of FUG himself, in broad daylight.
  • Ambiguous Gender: In her first appearance a lot of readers couldn't tell whether or not she was a girl due to the leotard and because her chest size wasn't very obvious at the time. Also occurred during the period when she was dressed as Yuto.
  • Art Evolution: Had much brighter hair and less detailed eyes during the first season, as well as relatively plain clothing. As of season 2 her hair is much darker, her eye is one of the most striking parts of her appearance, and she is given progressively fancier clothing to wear as time goes on.
  • The Bartender: Had this look for the beginning of season 2 while under her cover in a karaoke bar.
  • Berserk Button: Not very obvious at first glance, but it looks like doubting her skills as a Guide is a quick way to piss her off. A more passive aggressive example than most due to her more subdued nature.
  • Blasé Boast: Is fond of doing this from time to time. She likes to treat her Guide abilities as nothing special after doing something absurd with them. Like when on the Name Hunt station when she talks about how there are no rooms in the Tower that can't be found.
  • Brutal Honesty: Tends to be very frank when speaking with others.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: She first appears as a mysterious, strong Regular who gets injured in the crown game. She is actually an extremely experienced FUG member and a Guide like Evan; in fact acting as Rachel's, and then Bam's Guide.
  • The Chessmaster: She knew about the Elder's plan to turn Viole into a weapon for the other Slayers to use well-beforehand, and used it as a means of reuniting Bam with his friends. With almost the entirety of the Workshop Battle arc working out because of her plans.
  • Combat Pragmatist: When she's forced to help Team Rachel, she has no qualms about ordering them to perform a Groin Attack on some of the tougher enemies, much to their chagrin.
  • Compressed Hair: How exactly Hwaryun managed to seamlessly fit her below waist-length hair in a helmet while going as Yuto, let alone underneath a skintight latex hood, is perhaps one of the biggest mysteries about her.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: In the Crown Game, she sweeps the floor with everybody except Endorsi.
  • Damsel in Distress: Is used as a hostage to prevent Bam during a battle to limit his ability to fight back. And she gets captured by Rachel's group to help them in the Hell Train. Although since she can see the future, it's hard to tell how much of this is Just as Planned; certainly her getting captured in the workshop battle ultimately ended up putting her just where she wanted to be after the arc was over.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Always speaks in a neutral tone even when dishing out the snark.
  • Disabled Snarker: Losing an eye does little to impede her usual attitude.
  • Dub Name Change: Her name in the Japanese translation changes to "Karen".
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: A lot of her outfits give off this feel.
  • Enigmatic Minion: She's an FUG member, and yet she occasionally goes out of her way to help other Regulars for no reason. No wonder some of her colleagues are wary of her.
    • Noticeably, when Bam asks her why she's siding with FUG, she ducks the question by giving a general answer about why other people would do so instead.
  • Eyepatch of Power: After her eye got cut by Bam. Side materials claim that she is actually really fond of it, and likes herself better with the eye-patch on.
  • Eye Scream: There's one fairly graphic panel of Bam's power slashing across her eye; if you're reading quickly, it's easy to miss that the slash is shown cutting deeply into the eyeball.note 
  • Fan Disservice: While in most cases seeing a character with her looks have their shirt wide open would be a nice dish of Fanservice, having it open due to her being beaten bloody by Reflejo as a "lesson" and propped up in a Crucified Hero Shot made it more disturbing than anything else.
  • Fiery Redhead: Subverted. She is more a Cute Mute or The Stoic than fiery.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Pretty much everyone distrusts her for one reason or another, and tend to actively avoid her unless they are forced to use her help. The only exception being Bam because, well, he's Bam.
  • The Gadfly: Subtle, but it's there. Has a habit of messing with people by showing off how much she knows without actually giving any real information, and from the looks of it she mostly does it just because it was funny. Even when she goes out of her way to motivate people, she can't help but add in a few jabs here and there. Like when she motivates Yeon after the flower incident only to finish by saying that you can't expect much from a girl who can't even cook.
  • Guile Hero: Whether or not her intentions are on the good side of things has yet to be seen, her manipulative tendencies have shown up from time to time. Usually pushing a character in a personal dilemma into a direction that will lead to them to continue helping Bam.
  • Informed Attractiveness: In one of his blogposts, SIU stated that the most beautiful women introduced in season one was Hwaryun and that this was actually a plot point; which at the time was something that could be debated. But as of her first appearance in Season two, it's hard to argue on the contrary.
  • It's Personal: Claims to have a grudge against Hell Joe for killing a fellow Guide when it wasn't yet their destined time to die. Wanting Yuri and the others to take him out for her. Subverted later on when its revealed that, while she did have a grudge, she mainly just wanted a distraction so she could get the ladle which would help Bam later on.
  • Jerkass: She has her share of sarcasm, and tends to not get along with anyone not named Bam/Viole.
  • Luminescent Blush: Sports one brielfy when Viole tears off some of her clothing when she's disquised as Yuto.
  • Magic Staff: Her Weapon of Choice, also counts as a Flying Weapon.
  • The Mole: Was this during both in the first season, and during the Workshop Battle acting as Yuto.
  • Mysterious Woman: While she's eventually revealed to come from a clan of Guides, and seems to be fond of Viole/Bam, her background and motivations are largely unknown.
  • Nominal Hero: Or she could be this, since her motivations are not clear, and the group has to rely on her due to her position as a Guide.
  • Not So Different: States that she and Bam are alike but ignored his attempt at getting her to elaborate on what she meant.
    • Also with Khun. Both being very intelligent and cunning individuals who do whatever it takes to help Bam. With Khun being able to break down most of her true intentions on the Floor of Death solely by focusing on the fact that everything she does is for Bam's sake. The main difference, for better or for worse, is that Khun tries to take into account what Bam wants as much as he can, despite his own grievences. While Hwaryun will try to do so to an extent, but ultimately doesn't care about anything other than Bam, and will gladly sacrifice what she thinks needs to be.
  • Not So Omniscient After All: While her knowledge about the Tower is overall good, she lacks information about Irregulars. Among other things, she has been blindsided by Rachel due to this. In addition, Rachel's team has Emily, whose omniscient-like abilities really screws up Hwaryun's own knowledge base.
  • Oracular Urchin: Has shades of this, especially since she tends to be extremely cryptic with her advice as a Guide and never lets anybody else in on her plans.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: Khun becomes instantly suspicious when Hwaryun claims she wants them to take out Hell Joe because of a personal grudge against him. Since he doesn't believe she would do anything if it wasn't helping Bam in some way. He's right, while she did have a grudge against Joe, she didn't think it was as important as getting the ladle to trade for another Thorn fragment for Bam.
    • Another example is when she chooses not to go to the Hidden Floor with everyone else. Khun instantly becomes wary of it, noting how she would normally be willing to follow Bam into Hell every other time.
  • Out-Gambitted: While she manages to outgambit Reflejo and especially his minions, she totally didn't expect Cassano of planting a spying device on her tools, turning her into a Damsel in Distress later.
  • Precision F-Strike: Hwaryun is the first character to outright refer to Rachel as a bitch.
  • Power of Trust: It's been pointed out that Bam has complete faith in her as his Guide, best seen in their encounter with Mirotic guardian.
    • She later comments on this when forced to help Rachel's group, and how their doubt in her lessened their effectiveness, with her noting how Bam is much easier to control than them.
  • The Quiet One: For most of season one, she just sits around in the class room or the background. In season one she just has three conversations, with Aguero, Bam and Rachel. Quite possibly, she was just silent because the didn't need to socialize with the other Regulars.
    • Averted in season two; she's on the quiet side, but she talks far more.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Especially in season 2 and 3.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives one to Bam during the Hell Train arc because his recklessness when confronting Rachel made everyone else vulnerable.
  • Samus Is a Girl: She somehow manages to do this TWICE.
  • Sarcastic Devotee: Snarks every once and a while, mostly to Bam when the two share a conversation. Always willing to aid him, but never divulging the reasons for why.
  • Screw Destiny: Seems a bit odd at first, but when she is being interrogated by Evan on what Path she is trying to have Bam follow she denies the accusation. Instead claiming that she isn't trying to have him follow anyone's else path, but have him create an entirely new one for himself.
  • Seers: An odd example of this since it appears to be a somewhat limited example. Rather than predicting the future (though it is mentioned that Guides are capable of this occasionally) she is able to see the best method for a person to complete something, and the "path" they must take to get what they want.
  • Ship Tease: Less obvious than the other examples in the series, but it has been noted that when she was talking about him becoming worthy of being her God as well as a man, the wording was a bit ambiguous as to whether or not she was commenting on his growth, or hitting on him by calling him her man.
    • Adding on to this, as Affectionate Nickname points out she tends to treat him more endearing than every other character she interacts with, and despite how harshly she talks to him at times it always seems to be in his best interests. It's also a bit odd how much the two seem to trust each other despite the many reasons why people would act otherwise. Though it could just be chalked up to Bam's naivety.
    • A subtle example, but she tends to dislike socializing with anyone else outside of giving them guidance. But there's a Running Gag where she gets a bit upset whenever Bam ignores or is oblivious to her presence in the room.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Silent, but kind of adorable.
  • The Team
    Crown Game Team: Hwaryun (Mask), Goon and Yung.
    Hide-and-Seek Team A: Hwaryun, Shibisu, Khun, Anaak, Lauroe, Aleksai, Blarouse, Sunwoo, Rozeal, Kancho, Goon, Erik, Leon 3, and First Emperor.
    Viole's FUG Team: Yuto (Hwaryun), Viole, Reflejo, Sia Sia, Horyang, Cassano, Ran, and Nobic.
    Hwaryun's Rescue Party: Hwaryun, Horyang and Nobic.
    Bam's Hell Train Team: Hwaryun, Rak, Bam, Boro, Hanool, and Hana.
    Bam's Hell Train Dallar Show Team: Hwaryun, Bam, Khun, Rak, Wangnan, Ehwa, Boro, Aka, Sachi, Hanool, Danhwa, Moontari, Bero, Iruroe, Pompidou, and Vicente.
    Bam's 43rd Floor Expedition Team: Hwaryun, Bam, Khun, Rak, Ehwa, Boro, Sachi, Danhwa, and Iruroe.
    Bam's 43rd Floor Team: Hwaryun, Bam, Khun, Endorsi, Boro, Sachi, Iruroe and Hockney.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With Rachel's group after being held hostage by them in the Hell Train.
  • Undying Loyalty: Not so obvious in the beginning, but as time has gone on its become clear that she could give Khun a run for his money with how devoted she is to helping Bam.
  • Walking Spoiler: A lot about Hwaryun is revealed once readers see her true role in the season 1 epilogue.
  • Witch Species: She is from the Red Witch clan, who are known for their bright red hair and being Guides.
  • The Worf Effect: Though she doesn't have many combat appearances, it was still surprising to see someone who dominated a team of Regulars in a matter of seconds be beaten soundly, along with Horyang and Nobic, in order to show how strong Reflejo and Cassano were. Though somewhat justified by the fact that Word of God claims Guides have relatively low battle skills.
    • Also done in a non-combat based sense with her abilities as a Guide, her foresight was pretty much the main reason why the Workshop Battle worked out as well as it did for the heroes. During the Hell Train arc, she is largely useless since her powers aren't able to predict Rachel's movements due to Rachel's status as an Irregular and because of Emily's unique abilities. Makes up for it later on when her Guide abilities return when Bam leaves the Hidden Floor, with her being one of the main reasons they survived the encounter with Jahad's Royal Army.
  • World's Most Beautiful Woman: Word of God says she is the prettiest of the Part 1 Regulars, and that it is a plot point.

    Yeon Ehwa 

Yeon Ehwa

Tower Position: Fisherman, Flame User

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

A Regular that's introduced in season 2, and first appears in a scene where she fries Ja Wangnan during an attempt to complete the 20th Floor test. She is next forced to go along with Prince's loan shark team for another attempt at the 20th Floor test because of the debt she gained failing the test that she fried Wangnan in. Control over Ehwa ends up getting transferred to Viole after he defeats Prince's high-score on the punching machine for the 20th Floor test. She's also a user of the rare Flame User Position, which is basically converting shinsu into fire.

Following her freedom from Lurker Cash, Ehwa joins up with Viole and Wangnan's Sweet and Sour group that was formed as a result of completing the 20th Floor test. However, she learns of her Great Yeon Family having a dark side to them due to discovering the family's mistreatment of the Zigenas during the 21st Floor test. As a result, she decides to climb the Tower with Viole to witness the darkness of the other Great Families, and return to the Yeon Family after becoming a Ranker to set the family straight.

Afterwards, Ehwa climbs the Tower with the Sweet and Sour team all the way to the Hell Train, but unlike the rest of Wangnan's group, who continue the chase for Cassano, Yeon is asked to rejoin with Bam starting from the 39th Floor's Name Hunt Station.


  • A Day in the Limelight: During the FUG arc.
  • Aren't You Going to Ravish Me?: A little downplayed but Yeon basically asked this when she found out that Viole was a male and was staying in the same room. Suffice to say, Viole calmly expresses no interest in her body (and phrases it as such) which pisses off Yeon because... well... she's a woman with pride in her figure.
  • Butt-Monkey: Despite Word of God saying she is second in power only to Viole out of Sweet and Sour she server mostly as Plucky Comic Relief.
  • Can't Live With Them, Can't Live Without Them: She claims she hates Viole, however she knows that she can only control her flames when he is around.
  • Character Development: Ehwa loses respect for her Great Yeon Family after learning of their mistreatment towards the Zigena during the 21st Floor test.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Feels a little threatened when Hwaryun makes an appearance.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: She fumbles constantly, and yet it makes her quite endearing.
  • The Dark Chick: Briefly, when she’s being puppeted.
  • Defence Mechanism Superpower: Her Yeon flame briefly activates at full strength to protect herself from getting killed in the crossfire of Yuri's attack, resulting in a Power-Strain Blackout since it went beyond her current ability.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: She became known as the "Flamethrower" after her last test for the 20th Floor during which she burned everyone, including her own teammates, and failed.
  • Heroic BSoD: Learning about what her Great Yeon Family was doing to the Zigena of the 21st Floor sent her into a depression. Thankfully, Hwaryun got her out of it.
  • Irony: At least in the beginning. She is a clumsy pyromancer who also cannot cook, but is a good swimmer.
  • Flight: After finally awakening her powers as a member of the Yeon Family, she spends the entirety of her first battle flying.
  • The Klutz: She fumbles constantly. Not just with her fire abilities, either. Tech savvy she isn't.
  • Lethal Chef: Miseng starts crying when Ehwa decided to take over Viole's cooking. Worse, the hustle to find alternatives.
  • The Ojou: Feels like she has a duty as an "elite" of the Yeon Family to uphold their standards.
  • People Puppets: On the receiving end, courtesy of Lurker and Tin.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Non-malevolent one. She's just clumsy.
    • Subverted once she awakens in her battle against Angel. She really is that powerful.
  • Playing with Fire: She uses shinsu to produce flames.
  • Power Floats: When being controlled.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: At least when Bam isn't stealing her tights.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Knee length.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: She is certainly dangerous, though less malevolent than most examples.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Might as well be since she has no reason/obligation to follow Viole and does so out of excuses. This is brought to full circle during Viole and Endorsi's date where she spies on them with an annoyed look on her face.
  • The Team
    Sweet and Sour: Ehwa, Wangnan, Viole, Akraptor, Goseng, Miseng, Horyang, and Prince.
    Khun's Workshop Team: Ehwa, Wangnan, Viole, Khun, Rak, Dan, Akraptor, Goseng, Miseng, Prince, Blarode, and Quaetro.
    Khun's Hell Train Team: Ehwa, Khun, Wangnan, Akraptor, Miseng, Prince, Blarode, and Quaetro.
    Bam's Hell Train Dallar Show Team: Ehwa, Wangnan, Bam, Khun, Rak, Hwaryun, Boro, Aka, Sachi, Hanool, Danhwa, Moontari, Bero, Iruroe, Pompidou, and Vicente.
    Bam's 43rd Floor Expedition Team: Ehwa, Bam, Khun, Rak, Hwaryun, Boro, Sachi, Danhwa and Iruroe.
  • Team Killer: Was reputed to be this.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Pink
  • Technicolor Fire: Pink and lilac.
  • Took a Level in Badass: During the Workshop Battle, she precisely blew up the worm held in Beta's hands, disqualifying him from the competition. By the next arc she's coolly backing up Wangnan against Cassano. And after that, in her fight against Angel
  • Tsundere: With Viole, mostly because she is conflicted on whether or not it is right for her to be friends with a member of FUG when she is part of the Yeon Family.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Her flames are claimed to be strong enough that not even Rankers could control them. Consequently, Ehwa can't control them. Hence, she became quite a Team Killer. She is slowly discarding the 'Unskilled' part.
  • Vomit Indiscretion Shot: How Viole gets rid of a Puppeteer Parasite controlling her. It's messy.
  • Woman Scorned: Played for Laughs. Later, a minor plot point.

    Beta 

Beta

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/betatog.jpg
CLICK FOR BETA'S APPEARANCE AFTER WORKSHOP 

A being similar to Horyang, and Cassano, who had been turned into an experimental Living Ignition Weapon. Beta has lived on the Archimedes airship that houses the Workshop Battle almost his whole life as one who was experimented on by researcher Sophia within the ship's Acorn Workshop.

Out for revenge believing that Workshop made him suffer to push along the Living Ignition Weapon experiments for Viole's sake, Beta joins forces with FUG to lead said Slayer Candidate into Reflejo's trap so that Viole would get melted into the Thorn ignition weapon. However, the plan fails after Viole escapes the trap with the Thorn at hand, and then pushes Beta to his limits utilizing the Thorn's power. Beta falls unconscious due to the fight, but it's soon revealed that Workshop has already decided to dispose of Beta permanently for being a failed experiment. In order for Beta to live free from Workshop, Sophia is able to convince Lero-Ro to help the former escape the Workshop Battle.

After the Workshop Battle, and having learned that Cassano had baited him into fighting against Viole, Beta is hit with a Heel–Face Turn, and sides with Bam's group to ascend the Tower as a part of Nobic's team by joining their attempt to board the Hell Train in order to get revenge on Cassano for tricking him. Since he's not considered a true Regular, Team Nobic stores Beta as an item within Sia's lighthouse as the team climbs up the Tower.


  • Arc Villain: Fought against Viole and his companions during the Workshop Battle.
  • Character Development: He loses a lot of his villainous aspects after being hit with a Heel–Face Turn.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Not only he is a Living Ignition Weapon experiment, he was forced to kill his friends during said experiments.
  • A Day in the Limelight: The Workshop Battle tournament was basically an entire introduction arc for Beta's character.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: The reason he joins FUG to destroy Bam is because he's jealous that his target, Bam, has friends and is trying to reunite with them, while he had to kill his own friends in the past as part of being a living weapon, claiming that his target should suffer the same pain as he did.
    • And in Vol.2 Chapter 95, he finally gets a Shut Up, Hannibal! on his face.
      Bam:The reason you hated me wasn't for revenge...You just needed someone to hate.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Decides to join with Bam in the end. He is currently part of Khun's spare team along with Ran, Nobic, Sia Sia and Dan.
  • Loophole Abuse: Despite not being a true Regular, Beta climbs the Tower anyways, by remaining hidden inside the Heavenly Mirror or a Lighthouse.
  • Meaningful Name: He's essentially the only surviving member of the beta test group. Worse, his abilities are buggy, with Sophia needed to supply patches as needed. The upside? By comparison, the Wings of the Devils are better-balanced, but overall... nerfed.
  • Out of Focus: After Train City, the poor guy has remained stuck within Sia and Khun's lighthouses as the group makes their way up to the 43rd Floor of Death.
  • Playing with Syringes: He's the very messed-up result of this. And, without the continued long-distance support of Sophia's expertise, he'd quickly run into problems maintaining his physical and mental well-being.
  • The Team:
    Team Nobic: Beta, Dan, Nobic, Ran, and Sia Sia.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Beta really stepped up his game when the Hell Train chapters came along. Not only was he able to solo a couple of Ha Yura's followers, he was able to cause damage to the Mirotic guardian despite previous characters have been shown to fail.
  • Tyke Bomb: Like the other experiments. They were all raised specifically to weapons from very young.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Relying on Emily for information isn't a good idea...

    Hong Danhwa 

Hong Danhwa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/26fe4977ccfd5dad16c57fbf3e4db8f7.jpg

A D-rank Regular that joined Ha Yura’s Hell Train team. Yura finds him to have the most potential of her teammates, and is the only one she reveals her true intentions to. Following his split-up from Yura, Danhwa joins up with Bam's group on the Hell Train in an attempt to chase after Yura to convince her to leave Rachel's side. He's usually seen fighting alongside Ehwa.

Bero Bero

Tower Position: Fisherman

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

A fat D-rank Regular that leads a group trying to board the Hell Train. Bero's team first appears as one of the teams who took part in the 35th Floor's Train City tournament. Alongside Rak, Bero's team is finally able to board the Hell Train at the 37th Floor's Wooden Horse pit-stop, and join up with Bam's team to fight against Rachel and Hoaqin's group in the Dallar Show. Instead of joining Bam's 43rd Floor expedition group, Bero decides to stay on the Hell Train to look after the billion-soul White clone, but rejoins them once it's time to get off.


  • Acrofatic: Bero Bero's a fat character, but she can fight just as well as anyone in this series. Surprising everyone, she was able to fight Buelsar to a draw in the Dallar Show's first round.
  • Alliterative Name: Last name is the same as the first.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Briefly appears with the rest of her team watching the "Crazy Ball" match between Bam and Yura's groups.
  • Get A Hold Of Yourself Man: After a berserk Ehwa defeats Angel during the Dallar Show with her overwhelming Yeon flames, Bero is able to convince her to snap out of it before anything worse happens.
  • In-Series Nickname: After she joins Bam's team, most members just default to calling her "Candy".
  • The Leader: Of her Hell Train team.
  • Oh, Crap!: Spends a lot of time pulling these faces as she realises how underpowered she actually is in comparison to the real monsters she's found herself surrounded by.
  • Power-Up Food: Her means of powering herself up is chomping down on a giant lollipop.
  • Put on a Bus: While she hasn't quite disappeared, Bero stays on the Hell Train instead of taking part in Bam's trip to the 43rd Floor in order to look after the Hoaqin clone. She comes back along with Lauroe for the Hidden Floor arc.
  • Revenge: Her team actually had a fourth member (Tochi) that was quickly killed off by Buelsar after her group was finally able to board the Hell Train. Obviously, she wants revenge against him for his death.
  • Ship Tease: Hockney seems to have taken a liking to her, which she has no issue with.
  • The Team:
    Bero's Hell Train Team: Bero, Iruroe, and Pompidou.
    Bam's Hell Train Dallar Show Team: Bero, Boro, Bam, Khun, Rak, Wangnan, Ehwa, Hwaryun, Aka, Sachi, Hanool, Danhwa, Moontari, Iruroe, Pompidou, and Vicente.

Phonsekal Iruroe

Tower Position: Wave Controller

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

One of Bero Bero's D-rank teammates that floats around on a pillow. Iruroe is from the same family as Lauroe, which is made obvious by her constant need to sleep. Following the Hell Train's Dallar Show, Iruroe is one of the Regulars that joins Bam's group to journey to the forbidden 43rd Floor.


  • Blow You Away: Her powers, on the rare occasion when she actually uses them, seem to edge this way.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: She's shown to have good shinsu reading abilities, and can attack using shinsu as a Wave Controller...as she lays down on top of her pillow.
  • Color Motif: Just look at all that pink.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Briefly appears with the rest of Bero's team watching the "Crazy Ball" match between Bam and Yura's groups.
  • Flight: She can float atop her pillow.
  • In the Blood: OK, so she doesn't wrap up in a blankie and do the snuggle bug like Lauroe does, but it's pretty obvious that any Phonsekal residence is likely to be a very quiet place the vast majority of the time... They're a bunch of shinsu-reading Snorlaxes.
  • In-Universe Nickname: Cherry La
  • Out of Focus: Iruroe has been travelling alongside the rest of Bam's group ever since the end of the Dallar Show, but hasn't yet had a single moment of focus. While she does get a minor fight with her Sworn Enemy (an apparition of her uncle) during the Hidden Floor arc, she otherwise doesn't do anything notable.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Her role is basically the Hell Train saga's version of Phonsekal Lauroe from the Floor of Tests. To no one's surprise, Iruroe turned out to also be a member of the Eurasia branch family when her full name was said at the Name Hunt Station.
  • The Team:
    Bero's Hell Train Team: Iruroe, Bero, and Pompidou.
    Bam's Hell Train Dallar Show Team: Iruroe, Bero, Boro, Bam, Khun, Rak, Wangnan, Ehwa, Hwaryun, Aka, Sachi, Hanool, Danhwa, Moontari, Pompidou, and Vicente.

    Kaiser 

Kaiser / Lo Po Bia Elaine

Tower Position: Fisherman, Anima

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kaiser.jpg
CLICK FOR UNMASKED APPEARANCE AS ELAINE 

A D-Rank veteran warlord of the Lo Po Bia Family's Grey Wolf branch that ruled the 39th Floor's Name Hunt Station for over a thousand years. Kaiser is one of the top-3 D-ranks alongside Sachi and the Bia Princess twins.

In the past, Kaiser was meant to be a Jahad Princess for the Lo Po Bia Family, but a trap laid out by the Jahad and Bia families led her to becoming stuck at Name Hunt Station; forever trying to pay off a massive debt that had been placed on her and the Grey Wolf faction. In the present, Kaiser serves as the primary antagonist of the Name Hunt station arc since Yuri has tasked Bam to steal away Kaiser's name so that he can prove to her that he can take on the 43rd Floor of Death. The station warlord is notorious for stealing the names of Regulars who arrive at the station.


  • Arc Villain: Of the 39th Floor's Name Hunt Station arc alongside the Lo Po Bia twins.
  • The Beastmaster: Controls "Fenryl" a special wolf spirit Shinheuh that is only controlled by a very few number of people from her family.
  • Dark Action Girl: Is one of the 3 top D-rank Regulars, but on a completely different level to Sachi Faker, one of the other 3. More impressively, she has never had her name stolen in over a thousand years.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Hundreds of years ago, Kaiser of the Lo Po Bia Family's Grey Wolf faction was showing potential to be picked as a Jahad Princess, but she would end up falling into a trap laid out by the Bia and Jahad families to see if she would fall in love with a boy they staged before her, which she did. As a result, Kaiser was not chosen as a Jahad Princess, and was punished to climb the Tower as a normal Regular until she reached the 39th Floor. Here, she would have to take part in a "Special Labor Punishment" as the head of Name Hunt Station to pay off the punishment fee that was placed on her and the Grey Wolf faction. It gets even worse when it's discovered that the Grey Wolf faction had been wasting all the money that Kaiser's been providing them for the debt; resulting in none of the debt ever decreasing, and has basically left Kaiser stuck at the Name Hunt Station.
  • The Dreaded: Like Sachi, people fear Kaiser, because she's considered to be one of the top-3 D-rank Regulars.
  • Goal in Life: Kaiser works at Name Hunt Station in order to finally be forgiven by her Grey Wolf Family for her failure to become a Jahad Princess. In the end, she lets go of that goal after Bam helps her leave the station by paying off the family's debt.
  • Heel–Face Turn: She quits the name-stealing business after Bam gets FUG to pay off her debt.
  • Karma Houdini: According to the author blog post, Kaiser/Elaine is this. She was stated to definitely be the villain of the Name Hunt Station Story Arc for what they she was doing and had no sin absolving reason to do it and her later monologue was one meant to declare the character independence and new future, but not regret or show repentance for her crimes. SIU even stated if Bam were being truly just, he wouldn't have saved her.
  • The Leader: Of the Name Hunt Station and its Ten Bosses.
  • My Greatest Failure: Kaiser regrets failing the love test that led to her Grey Wolf faction getting punished with a massive debt being placed upon them. It's because of this regret that Kaiser doesn't appear to have any problem with knowing that the Grey Wolves are wasting the money away that she's been providing them to pay off the debt.
  • Put on a Bus: Elaine leaves Name Hunt Station on Jinsung's ship after he purchased her name at the festival auction. Thus, she doesn't follow Baam's group for the rest of the Hell Train journey. She finally turns up again in Season 3 as part of Baam's team when they go after Baylord Yama and his dogs.
  • The Team:
    Kaiser's Name Hunt Station Team: Kaiser, Alphine, Inieta, Yukan, Lulu, Variel, Hesse, and Marte.
  • White Mask of Doom: Wears a white mask.

A painter Regular with an odd set of eyes who's considered to be the top scout amongst the D-rankers, and originally used to live on the 43rd Floor of Death before managing to escape the place. Despite his strong reputation, Hockney made a home for himself within the 40th Hell Train station known as the Mushroom Farm, and has stayed put until the last piece of his Red Light painting he's been waiting for finally appears.

However, he's finally forced to enter the Hell Train due to Yura having obtained the Red Light piece, which Hockney considers to be a part of his soul. Yura then baits Hockney to return to the Floor of Death by informing him through Emily that he will find his Red Light painting there. For his return to the Floor of Death, Hockney joins up with Bam's expedition team.

  • Ship Tease: With Bero as he appears to like women who are around her size.
  • The Team:

Supporting

Team Shibisu

    Shibisu 

Shibisu

Voiced by: Takuya Eguchi (Japanese), Scott Whyte (English)

Tower Position: Scout

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

A seemingly average-looking guy who provides the series a ton of comedic moments. Shibisu starts off looking like someone who doesn't have anything special about him, and gets easily pushed around by those stronger than him. However, it soon turns out that he is actually much smarter than he looks, which results in people willing to stand behind his command.

In season 1, Shibisu is somehow able to get himself paired up with two monster Regulars, Hatz and Anaak, that made up for his lack of strength in the initial 2nd Floor tests. He's eventually able to pass the Floor of Tests with the rest of the group.

In season 2, Shibisu acts as the leader of his team due to his proven intellect as they go about climbing the Tower. Their main goal is to protect Anaak from the Tower given her Fake Princess status. Like Khun, Shibisu was there when he learned of Rachel's betrayal; meaning that the rest of his team also knows. Shibisu also leads his team at the Workshop Battle and Name Hunt Station. The former of which turns into a mission to help Bam break away from FUG while the latter has the team take on Kaiser's faction in order to get Endorsi's stolen name back.


  • Action Survivor: Despite his relatively low combat skills, he's done well in surviving against some really tough opponents.
  • Art Evolution: In Season 2, he's drawn in a more realistic and gritty style to signify he's Taken A Level In Badass.
  • Badass Normal: He's basically a normal human with high-intellect, but is able to survive through the Floor of Tests due to his evasive abilities as a scout, and is now climbing the Tower.
    • After hearing a Ranker give a brutal Breaking Speech to another Regular about how his not being able to make it through the Shinsu barrier means he was choosen to fail, Ship says Screw Destiny and pushes his way through the barrier through pure willpower.
  • Badass Bookworm: Shibisu is much more perceptive than he looks but among his team he's still Overshadowed by Awesome. But he can fight two people at once, proving that his knowledge of the Killer Martial Arts is not just for show.
  • Butt-Monkey: Even though he is the leader of his team he gets pushed around a lot by them.
  • Character Development: He starts to take his leadership role for the team a lot more seriously by season 2.
  • Chick Magnet: Not as much as Bam, but if one looks closely, there is at least two woman who like him, Serena and Anaak.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Brown.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: A non-romantic example, but Anaak and Hatz have physically dragged him around when he doesn't do what they want.
  • Dragged by the Collar: How Anaak dragged a protesting Ship off the stage after agreeing to take part in the test.
  • The Drag-Along: After Anaak agrees to taking part in the special examination with Bam, she walks cooly offstage, silently dragging a kicking and screaming Ship behind her.
  • Establishing Character Moment: A sequence of them in the first few chapters after his introduction — showing his Butt-Monkey status by having him blustering ineffectually while Anaak and Hatz show off their skills, then revealing his Determinator nature by having him push through Lero-Ro's Shinsu barrier test with sheer willpower, and finally having him demonstrate his intelligence by being the only person to perfectly solve Yu Hansung's door puzzle.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: The Ranker says anyone unable to make it through the barrier was chosen to fail and nothing they do can change that. Shibisu decided to screw that and pushed his way through the barrier through pure willpower.
  • Guile Hero: His stat sheet lists him as nearly dead last in every single category... except intelligence, where he's one of the highest of the first season's Regulars.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Tries to pull a non-lethal one on Quant.
  • The Leader: Takes on this role for the team in season 2.
  • The Load: Starts off seeming like he will be one to Hatz and Anaak, almost causing them all to fail the second test, then shows he's one of the smartest characters in the series the next test and is even the team leader in the second volume.
  • Older Than He Looks: Not nearly as extreme as many other characters, but he's 26 in the first volume, despite looking and acting like a teen.
  • Nice Guy: Among other things, he uses his own body to cling on to Quant, getting horribly beaten up solely to slow him down a tiny bit and increase his team's chances of victory even though, as Quant points out, he himself was already certain to pass.
  • Ship Tease: With Serena in the first season.
  • The Smart Guy: Along with Aguero, forms the strategical team.
  • The Strategist: After the time-skip, he serves this role for his team.
  • The Team:
    Crown Game Team: Shibisu, Anaak, and Hatz.
    Hide-and-Seek Team A: Shibisu, Khun, Anaak, Hwaryun, Lauroe, Aleksai, Blarouse, Sunwoo, Rozeal, Kancho, Goon, Erik, Leon 3, and First Emperor.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Shibisu, Khun, Bam, Rachel, Rak, Endorsi, Anaak, Lauroe, Hatz, Aleksai, Blarouse, Chunhwa, Sunwoo, Levin, Paracule, and Ghost.
    Team Shibisu: Shibisu, Anaak, Endorsi, Hatz, Lauroe, Aleksai, Vespa, and Verdi.
  • Team Mom: A gender-flipped example.
  • Took a Level in Badass: He goes from Butt-Monkey in the 1st season, to the team leader in the 2nd season.
  • The Unchosen One: His inability to walk through the Shinsu barrier made him doomed to fail in the eyes of the Ranker in charge of the test, so he "chose himself" and pushed his way through.

    Anaak Jahad 

Anaak Jahad

Voiced by: Akira Sekine (Japanese), Cherami Leigh (English)

Tower Position: Fisherman

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

A solitary lizard girl who spent a great time of her life on the outer 43rd Floor with Garam Jahad before being chosen to enter the inner Tower. Anaak is out to get revenge for her parents' murder by killing the entire Jahad family, and the hook weapon she wields turns out to be her mother's 13-Month Weapon, the Green April. She was also considered one of the top-5 E-Rank Regulars alongside Endorsi, Ran, Blarode and Baragav.

In season 1, Anaak first appears on the 2nd Floor in the initial survival test where she meets Hatz and immediately battles him. Though she is one of the strongest on the 2nd Floor, she keeps to herself despite forming a team with Hatz and Shibisu. She's also the reason that Bam would end up losing the 13-Month Series, Black March.

In truth, Anaak is the daughter of the real Anaak Jahad; a defected Princess who broke the law of Jahad's rule by giving birth to a child, which resulted in Jahad's borrowed power getting passed down to the infant. This makes the daughter Anaak a Fake Jahad Princess; an existence that is seen as an insult to the Jahad Rulers, and makes her an enemy to the entire Tower. Princess Yuri manages to protect Anaak from a Ranker assassin, Ren, that was sent to kill Anaak during her journey through the Floor of Tests. However, Yuri in return takes away the two 13-Month Weapons that Anaak had hold of.

In season 2, Anaak is currently climbing the Tower as part of Shibisu’s team and supports them on whatever mission they come across.


  • Always Someone Better: She is extremely powerful in her own right, but time and time again when she faces a Jahad Princess or anyone of high standing, is proven to still be lacking in the power required to even start her quest for revenge right.
    • Also suffered this with Khun Ran in the Workshop Battle, though it's hard to tell how it would have ended since Paracule interrupted the match.
  • Arc Villain: Towards Bam for the 2nd Floor's Crown Game. She threatened to kill him if he didn't hand over the Black March. The two of them made a bet over each other's 13-Month weapons (Black March and Green April) depending on if Bam could win the Crown Game, which resulted in Bam losing in the final round.
  • Berserk Button: Anything related to the Jahads makes her blood boil. And then Ren reveals he killed her mother.
  • BFS: Her new weapon after Yuri takes the Green April is an enormous spear, which is at least 15 feet long. Justified because Anaak is used to the Green April's Ignition, which is even larger.
  • Character Development: She's calmed down a lot since the early season 1 chapters now that she's got a team of friends willing to protect her from an entire Tower that wants her dead.
  • Curtains Match the Window: The colour is brown.
  • Death Glare: When Ren taunts her with her mother's amulet.
  • Disappeared Dad: A driving force of her quest is getting revenge for 'The death of that Chicken-Pie cook', her unnamed father.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Always seen barefoot.
  • Fatal Flaw: Pride. Time and again, it proves her Achilles heel.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Green April, before Yuri takes it from her. It is a hook that can decompress to an unimaginable size.
  • Legacy Character: She's actually the daughter of the original Anaak Jahad.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Agile enough to fight evenly with Ran and strong enough to disable Nobic in one shot.
  • Little Miss Badass: Despite looking like a 10 year old, she was one of the top 5 rank E-rank Regulars (before she became a D-rank).
  • Lizard Folk: Appears to be from her mother's side, though this is an assumption since her father was never shown.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Pretends to be a spoilt brat during the crown game, and then reveals she is placed exactly where she wanted to be - in the best position for her skills to be fully utilized. She proceeds to swat everybody like flies.
  • Odd Friendship: With Endorsi.
  • Older Than They Look: About 300 when season 1 starts.
  • Out of Focus: Despite season 1 going to great lengths to develop her Fake Jahad Princess status, Anaak has remained mostly as support for Shibisu’s team in season 2. The lone exception being her developing rivalry with Khun Ran.
  • Pride: Her Fatal Flaw. Which is mercilessly exploited by Ran.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: According to the wiki, 154cm. Able to throw a spear with enough force to punch a hole in a building.
  • The Rival: To Ran.
  • The Team:
    Crown Game Team: Anaak, Shibisu, and Hatz.
    Hide-and-Seek Team A: Anaak, Shibisu, Khun, Hwaryun, Lauroe, Aleksai, Blarouse, Sunwoo, Rozeal, Kancho, Goon, Erik, Leon 3, and First Emperor.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Anaak, Shibisu, Khun, Bam, Rachel, Rak, Endorsi, Lauroe, Hatz, Aleksai, Blarouse, Chunhwa, Sunwoo, Levin, Paracule, and Ghost.
    Team Shibisu: Anaak, Shibisu, Endorsi, Hatz, Lauroe, Aleksai, Vespa, and Verdi.
  • Tsundere: There are times when she'll get pissed whenever Shibisu looks at another woman.
  • Walking Spoiler: Knowing about Anaak's past gives away a major plot-point that is revealed throughout the Floor of Tests saga.

    Hatz 

Hatz

Voiced by: Toshinari Fukamachi (Japanese), Nicholas Roye (English)

Tower Position: Scout

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

The son of a swordsmith that claims to follow the spirit of swordsmanship. Hatz has been training in the way of the sword for many years, and is extremely loyal to those that he deems to be his companions.

In season 1, Hatz manages to use his swordsmanship skills to go toe to toe with Anaak during his 2nd Floor introduction. Throughout the Floor of Tests, Hatz continued to prove himself to be one of tougher Regulars as a user of the sword, and even manages to take on a Ranker, Quant, by himself for a brief time.

In season 2, Hatz is currently climbing the Tower with Shibisu's 2nd Floor graduation team. He's become so famous at this point that the mere rumor that someone managed to beat 'that Hatz guy' in battle is their main selling point as a mercenary. Due to Cassano breaking his sentimental sword, Hatz spends most of the Workshop Battle off doing his own thing in search of a new weapon. He eventually shows off a new weapon during the war at Name Hunt Station, an ignition sword known as Donghae.


  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: He uses Shinsu manipulation to turn his swords into these.
  • Big Damn Heroes: He saves Team Nobic before they lost their names to a No-name Regular at Name Hunt Station.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Although he has magic swords at the beginning, he's the only "powerhouse" character with no native advantages; all other high-ranking Regulars benefit from Superpowerful Genetics or some other special advantage, but Hatz's power comes entirely from ridiculous training, to the point where even at the start, he can go toe-to-toe with a Princess of Jahad and (briefly) stand his ground against a Ranker.
  • Curtains Match the Window: His colour is black.
  • A Day in the Limelight: During the Workshop Battle saga, Hatz is off doing his own thing within the Archimedes Acorn Workshop away from the rest of Shibisu's Team, who are taking part in the main Workshop Battle tournament. The main purpose of this side-journey was to find a replacement sword for the one he lost in a fight against Cassano, but ended up stumbling upon the forbidden Acorn Workshop that has been working on developing the Emily weapon.
  • Dual Wielding: The Sword That Flies Higher Than Any. The Sword That Flies Lower Than Any.
  • Fantasy Counterpart Culture: His clothing, his name, his physical characteristics, his weapons and his mentality are very Japanese.
  • Flying Weapon: He uses a flying sword as one of his weapons on the Second Floor, although he seems to have lost it later on.
  • Fragile Speedster: His sword techniques strike very quickly, but both his sword and him can't handle too much of a beating.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Attempts a non-lethal one during the Second Floor test to stop Quant from pursuing the rest of the team.
  • Improbable Weapon User: It doesn't matter if it's a sword or a random pipe he picked up. If it is in his hands it WILL cut you.
  • Master Swordsman: He's established as one of the best Regulars introduced on the Floor of Tests as an exceptional sword user, and continues to be one as he climbs up the Tower.
  • Rōnin: Though probably a Korean version of a masterless Samurai.
  • Samurai: More of a Rōnin, but still.
  • Pragmatic Hero: His sense of fairness is very flexible in certain situations.
  • The Quiet One: Does not speak much.
  • Shrouded in Myth: Mild one. Five years after his debut in The Tower, beating "that Hatz guy" seems to be a major accomplishment.
  • The Team:
    Crown Game Team: Hatz, Shibisu, and Anaak.
    Hide-and-Seek Team B: Hatz, Endorsi, Bam, Michelle Light (Rachel), Hoh, Serena, Shopin, Chunhwa, Death Ryan, Mauchi, Paracule, Levin, Full Black, and Grey.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Hatz, Endorsi, Bam, Anaak, Shibisu, Khun, Rachel, Rak, Endorsi, Lauroe, Aleksai, Blarouse, Chunhwa, Sunwoo, Levin, Paracule, and Ghost.
    Team Shibisu: Hatz, Endorsi, Anaak, Shibisu, Lauroe, Aleksai, Vespa, and Verdi.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Compared to powerhouses like the Jahad Princesses and Viole.
  • The Worf Effect: Beaten off screen by the Devil of the Right Arm just to show how tough this devil really is.
  • Wrecked Weapon: He loses his weapon during the fight with Cassano.

    Phonsekal Lauroe 

Phonsekal Lauroe

Voiced by: Daisuke Ono (Japanese), Nicolas Roye (English)

Tower Position: Wave Controller

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

A branch member of the Great Eurasia Family, who runs around with a blanket and pillow to sleep wherever he can.

In season 1, Lauroe establishes himself as one of the more powerful Floor of Test Regulars due to his incredible Shinsu control as a wave controller. The only problem is that he requires a lot of rest.

In season 2, Lauroe continues to climb the Tower as part of Shibisu's 2nd Floor graduation team, and supports them on whatever mission they come across.


  • Brilliant, but Lazy: He's one of the most powerful of the Regulars in the first and second season, but usually prefers to just curl up in his blanket and fall asleep.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Kicks ass when he stops sleeping on the battle field.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: As seen in the Crown Game special test.
  • Flight: Is able to levitate.
  • Hidden Depths: Being one of the older members of the cast in the first season, and being from one of the 10 great families means he's way savvier than he lets on.
  • It Runs in the Family: From a branch member of the Eurasia family, which is notorious for their laziness.
  • Mentor Archetype: He helps Bam develop his shinsu abilities during the wave controller class.
  • Older Than They Look: Word of God says he is in his 130s.
  • Out of Focus: Compared to his other teammates on Team Shibisu, he hasn't had much to do in Season 2. His primary day-in-the-limelight was when he forced the Medina parasite out of Beta during the Workshop Battle.
  • Punch-Clock Hero: Works for his team only when forced to. Or, if he just steps in randomly, it's simply the quickest way to get back to sleep in peace and quiet.
  • Pure Energy: Is able to create blasts of Shinsu that out-power most.
  • Sleepyhead: Carries a pillow and a blanket around everywhere, and will throw them down and fall asleep at the slightest opportunity.
  • The Team
    Crown Game Team: Lauroe, Hoh, and Serena.
    Hide-and-Seek Team A: Lauroe, Anaak, Shibisu, Khun, Hwaryun, Aleksai, Blarouse, Sunwoo, Rozeal, Kancho, Goon, Erik, Leon 3, and First Emperor.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Lauroe, Anaak, Shibisu, Khun, Bam, Rachel, Rak, Endorsi, Hatz, Aleksai, Blarouse, Chunhwa, Sunwoo, Levin, Paracule, and Ghost.
    Team Shibisu: Lauroe, Anaak, Shibisu, Endorsi, Hatz, Aleksai, Vespa, and Verdi.

    Aleksai Amigochaz 

Aleksai Amigochaz

Tower Position: Spear Bearer

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aleksai_3968.jpg

A silent, and large devil-winged muscle man who's viewed as the dreaded by those around him.

In season 1, Aleksai was said to have attacked anybody he could in the 2nd Floor's starting survival test, which gave him a reputation as someone who was probably an incredibly dangerous fellow. However, he becomes part of the core group making it through the Floor of Tests, and proves to have spear throwing skills on par with Rak's.

In season 2, Aleksai continues to climb the Tower as part of Shibisu's 2nd Floor graduation team, and supports them on whatever mission they come across.


  • Ambiguously Brown: He shows up in Season 2 with a much lighter skin tone, indicating he possibly was tanned or there was a coloring error.
  • Blade on a Stick: He is a Spear Bearer.
  • The Berserker: According to other Regulars, during the first test he furiously attacked anyone that came close.
  • The Dreaded: He made a name for himself as a dangerous Regular that mercilessly attacked anyone he came across in the first test to the point that people were amazed Aleksai was able to find two people crazy enough to make a 3-person-team with him.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: Although a spear bearer, he's very proficient in this as well.
  • Out of Focus: Compared to his other teammates on Team Shibisu, he hasn't had much to do in Season 2. His primary day-in-the-limelight moment was sadly getting worfed by Viole in close-combat duel.
  • The Quiet One: Rarely speaks, even with friends around.
  • The Rival: To Rak as a fellow spear bearer. They get into a hit-the-target duel as training for the final 2nd Floor test.
  • Super Strength: Able to punch huge holes in the ground.
  • The Team
    Crown Game Team: Aleksai, Chungchung and Leon 3.
    Hide-and-Seek Team A: Aleksai, Lauroe, Anaak, Shibisu, Khun, Hwaryun, Blarouse, Sunwoo, Rozeal, Kancho, Goon, Erik, Leon 3, and First Emperor.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Aleksai, Lauroe, Anaak, Shibisu, Khun, Bam, Rachel, Rak, Endorsi, Hatz, Blarouse, Chunhwa, Sunwoo, Levin, Paracule, and Ghost.
    Team Shibisu: Aleksai, Lauroe, Anaak, Shibisu, Endorsi, Hatz, Vespa, and Verdi.
  • Winged Humanoid: His devil wings. Word of God says they're removable.
  • The Worf Effect:
    • In Season 1, he's built up to be The Dreaded due to his efforts in the initial survival test. However, he gets disposed of by Quant quite easily during the Hide-And-Seek test. In his defense though, Quant was mostly acting as a Stealth Mentor here to teach Aleksai that relying on strength alone isn't going to get him far in the Tower.
    • In Season 2, he gets knocked out in one hit during One Shot, One Opportunity in order to show off the power of Viole's thorn. As a result, he's out cold throughout the rest of the Workshop Battle.

    Verdi 

Verdi

Tower Position: Anima

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/verdi_4819.jpg
CLICK FOR VERDI'S PET OCTOPUS 

An Anima Regular who controls a large pet octopus, and one of two recruits of Shibisu's new team. Verdi has a peculiar fetish where she likes to turn people she fancies into "dolls."


  • Badass Adorable: If her actions during One Shot, One Opportunity speak anything, she was able to solo an entire group of Regulars on her own.
  • The Beastmaster: As an Anima Regular. Her primary pet being an octopus.
  • Bodyguard Crush: Verdi starts crushing on Prince after seeing how far he will go to bring Miseng back to normal in the Workshop's Battle x Gamble round.
  • Creepy Child: There's definitely something not right with this one... especially regarding her "doll" fetish.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Yeo Miseng and Prince never stood a chance.
  • Fight Unscene: She captures Miseng and Prince off-screen during the One Shot, One Opportunity game.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Self explanatory.
  • Living Doll Collector: Wishes to turn anyone she has interest in into a doll.
  • Power Parasite: Her octopus has the ability to temporarily seal another person' special abilities.
  • Satellite Character: Apart from being a creepy Anima kid that wants to turn people into dolls, the reader never learns anything about Verdi. Most just know her as the octopus girl in Shibisu's season 2 team.
  • Shipper on Deck: She's a major supporter of Miseng x Prince to the point of wanting to force a marriage on them.
  • Sizeshifter: Her octopus can change its size.
  • The Team:
    Team Shibisu: Verdi, Shibisu, Anaak, Endorsi, Hatz, Lauroe, Aleksai, and Vespa.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Can be seen as such for Shibisu's Season 2 team.

    Vespa 

Vespa

Tower Position: Scout

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vespa_9368.jpg

A Regular Scout, and one of two recruits of Shibisu's new team. Vespa is a bee themed humanoid who excels at close range combat. Vespa also served as Shibisu's starting Vanguard for the Workshop tournament.


  • Ambiguous Gender: It's not confirmed yet if Vespa is a male or female.
  • Beam Spam: Can fire gold beams of shinsu.
  • Bee People: A bee-themed humanoid.
  • Blade on a Stick: Vespa's weapon of choice.
  • Carrying the Antidote: The antidote to his needles' poison is the honey in the pot Vespa carries around.
  • Close-Range Combatant: Fights up close with her bee-stinger shaped spear.
  • Fight Unscene: Vespa defeating Bundawan during the Workshop Battle was never seen.
  • Flight: Able to fly.
  • Master Poisoner: Vespa's needles are coated in a poison that can kill within 5 minutes.
  • Satellite Character: Similar to Verdi, Vespa doesn't have any character depth apart from being that new bee-person in Shibisu's season 2 team.
  • The Swarm: Going along with the bee theme, Vespa also has miniature needles that fly around; some for firing beams of shinsu, and some for poisoning.
  • The Team:
    Team Shibisu: Vespa, Verdi, Shibisu, Anaak, Endorsi, Hatz, Lauroe, and Aleksai.

Team Nobic

    Nobic 

Nobic

Tower Position: Spear Bearer

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/novicktog_6031.jpg

Spear Bearer of Khun's starting season 2 team who wears a green jogging jacket, and a member of a famous branch of the Great Ha Family, though he likes making up fake family names for laughs and wits. Nobic is considered amongst the top E-rank Regulars due to his Hayeol Style abilities that rely on immobilizing his opponent.

Following Khun's team falling apart, Nobic is forced into joining up with Viole's Workshop team to help the FUG leader (Bam) win the Workshop Battle. Afterwards, Khun names him the leader of a new support team that consists of Ran, Dan, Beta and Sia Sia, who then go about trying to board the Hell Train. However, apart from Beta, the team was unable to get on the Hell Train during their attempts at Train City, and Name Hunt Station.


    Khun Ran 

Khun Ran

Tower Position: Fisherman, Lightning User

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/koonran_2671.jpg

Fisherman of Khun's starting season 2 team. Ran was considered one of the top-5 E-Rank Regulars alongside Endorsi, Anaak, Blarode and Baragav, and is from the same branch family as Khun Maschenny Jahad. He even has the rare Lightning User Position, which allows Ran to use several Maschenny shinsu techniques utilizing electricity.

Following Khun's team falling apart , Ran is forced into joining up with Viole's Workshop team to help the FUG leader (Bam) win the Workshop Battle. Afterwards, he becomes part of Nobic's new team as they try to get on the Hell Train.


  • Always Someone Better: His defeat at Viole's hands did a number on his pride, and his experiences with D-rank Regulars doesn't seem to be helping much in this regard.
  • Arch-Enemy: Considers Maschenny this, after fighting with her when he was younger and losing. Considers killing her as his final goal when he becomes a Ranker.
  • Badass Adorable: The small and cute member of the Great Khun Family. Ran was able to defeat Nobic, and fought evenly with Anaak during the Workshop Battle.
  • The Big Guy: Despite his small stature, he's the strongest fighter out of Team Khun, and was one of the top 5 E-rank Regulars before becoming D-rank.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Borderline example. He is obnoxious, spoiled and quite childish at times (he destroyed Aguero's Lighthouse during a mission), yet when he gets serious he is a force to be reckoned with.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: How he defeats Nobic.
    • On the receiving end with Nobic, courtesy of Viole.
  • Cute Bruiser: Surly, tough and undeniably cute. Just... be careful saying that.
  • Expy: Of Hunter × Hunter's Killua Zoldyck. The electricity-based powers, Khun-brand snark, age, adult grade fighting experience, and color scheme all point to Ran being influenced by him.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When he defeats Nobic.
  • Glass Cannon: Relies on his extremely potent attack power and ability to dodge blows most of the time. Doesn't fare that well when he does get hit himself. Worse, because he relies on hit-and-dodge, others can easily bait or herd him into traps if they can take it for a while.
  • Hot-Blooded: Doesn't look like it. Doesn't sound like it. Usually doesn't act like it (unless provoked). But, going off pop and rushing into dangerous situations half-cocked is his speciality.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: Despite being a Fisherman, Ran's Spear Bearer position is ranked higher than his Fisherman position due to his powerful Lightning Spear techniques, which are extremely powerful for his level. This made him possibly the best Spear Bearer of all the E-rank Regulars.
  • Idiot Ball: When he gets impatient, he tends to get stupid.
  • Jerkass: He is extremely arrogant, and seems to possess next to no social skills.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: With an emphasis on the "wizard" part, he is still a capable hand-to-hand fighter.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: He primarily uses Shinsu and overwhelming force to attack, rather than traditional combat.
  • Oh, Crap!: When Viole shows up, Ran's reaction is basically a chain of Oh, Crap! moments one after the other.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: Very much. Problem is, he generally deals out damage better than he can take it.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to Nobic's blue, defying their color scheme.
  • The Rival: To Anaak and Moontari. He was also introduced as Nobic's friendly(?) rival, even though the latter isn't quite on his level.
  • Shock and Awe: His Lightning Spear technique.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Compared to many other Regulars since his introduction, Ran has been involved in a majority of the fights. Especially after the Team Nobic support team has been established.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Subverted. Sure, just one look at him will yell "Khun" if you know much about the Ten. And, he's got the physical oomph and arrogance down to an art. However, he's not that good at the whole cool, calm, collected and dangerously manipulative part of the brief.
  • Super Mode: Redan, which he activates by concentrating shinsu into one baang then swallowing it. This greatly augments his fighting powers, but after 5 minutes, he will collapse.
  • The Stoic: Facial expressions beyond "frustration" and "bored" are for other people.
  • The Team:
    Khun's Original Season 2 Team: Ran, Dan, Khun, Rachel, Nobic, Gyetang, Apple, and Michael.
    Viole's FUG Team: Ran, Viole, Reflejo, Yuto, Sia Sia, Horyang, Cassano, and Nobic.
    Team Nobic: Ran, Dan, Nobic, Beta, and Sia Sia.
  • The Worf Effect: This series has a tendency to use him to make others look stronger. It's often justified by his rushing in where those with some information and caution fear to tread. Examples:
    • He's played up and shown to be an enormous badass only to make Viole's utter domination of him show how much stronger Viole is. Mind you, had he not been an idiot, Aguero might have been able to warn him about the Irregular factor.
    • He clashes with Mirotic and Moontari, to no avail during Revolution Road to hype up their power. Mind you, the guy was practically frothing with frustration, so disinclined to think before charging.

    Edin Dan 

Edin Dan

Tower Position: Scout

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/edindan_1643.jpg

A Regular who was forcibly recruited into Khun's season 2 team. Due to his blazing speed, Dan acts as the Scout for his comrades.

Wanting to prove to Rachel that he hasn't given up the Tower climb despite her injuring his legs, Dan would later follow Khun to join up with Wangnan's Sweet and Sour team as they participate in the Workshop Battle. Following the Workshop Battle, Dan joins up with Nobic's new team as they try to get on the Hell Train.


  • A Day In The Lime Light: Knot of Wool or Competing Fences Arc
  • Audience Surrogate: Type 2.
  • Beady-Eyed Loser: His introduction shows that he's pretty much given up climbing the Tower after making it to E-Rank.
  • Butt-Monkey: In the first few strips after his introduction he gets outgambitted, drugged, forcibly recruited, severely beaten and more than once humiliated.
  • Character Development: Prior to joining Khun's team, Dan lost the will to climb the Tower due to being the only survivor that ran away from his team when they were stuck going up against powerful opponents. However, after having his legs injured by Rachel, he regains that strong will to climb the Tower once more in order to show her that he hasn't given up just yet.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Black/brown.
  • Defiant to the End: His speech against Rachel knowing that saying it would probably get him killed. No Rachel. Edin doesn't want be your legs.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Rachel attempted to cause him to experience this and he is determined to make it not happen.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Rachel stabbed him countless times in the legs and feet, basically crippling him and ruining his chances in the Tower even if he recovers, for rejecting her offer to come with her.
  • "Facing the Bullets" One-Liner: "Get lost. If you want to walk, walk with those fine legs of your own. You kicked away two friends with those, am I right?" Fortunately, Rachel didn't kill him... except Edin lost his legs instead.
  • Fragile Speedster: Rumored to be faster than light, which is why Aguero wanted him.
    • Ran even outright says that Dan is useless in a fight, but when it comes to speed, nobody can surpass him.
  • Flash Step: During his first appearance, he was too fast even for Khun.
  • Kick the Dog: Rachel attempted to cause him to hit a Despair Event Horizon by taking away his legs, for simply rejecting an offer to help her in the tower.
  • My Greatest Failure: His abandoning his last team to die in a desperate fight.
  • Oh, Crap!: His reaction moments after accepting a duel with Nobic. The rest of his team forfeited.
  • Retired Badass: Stopped being a Regular due to the 20th Floor Syndrome.note 
  • Super Speed: Extremely fast.
  • The Team:
    Khun's Original Season 2 Team: Dan, Khun, Rachel, Ran, Nobic, Gyetang, Apple, and Michael.
    Khun's Workshop Team: Dan, Khun, Viole, Rak, Wangnan, Ehwa, Akraptor, Goseng, Miseng, Prince, Blarode, and Quaetro.
    Team Nobic: Dan, Nobic, Ran, Beta, and Sia Sia.

    Sia Sia 

Sia Sia

Tower Position: Light Bearer

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/xiaxia_3415.jpg

An E-rank Regular introduced on the 28th Floor. She is a Light Bearer, and an Information Monger who likes to charge money for her services. She also happens to be a member of FUG where she becomes part of Viole's team for the Workshop Battle.


  • Alliterative Name: Last name is the same as the first.
  • Animal Eyes: Has slitted pupils.
  • Cute and Psycho: Really, really nuts. She has since sobered up after her defection from FUG.
  • Deliberately Distressed Damsel: Activated a trap to slow and distract Viole to prevent him from reaching the Hand of Alren on time.
  • High-Heel–Face Turn: She is currently out of FUG and is a member of Khun's spare team alongside Ran, Nobic, Dan and Beta.
  • Mission Control: As a Light Bearer.
  • Only in It for the Money: Does not seem to share FUG's ideology nor does she appear to have any grudge against Jahad, apparently she was just hired for the job rather than being a true member of the organization.
  • Redemption Equals Life: She informed Khun's friends where the they hide the hostage and soon escaped the cave with them. Good for her, because Reflejo and his comrades want to pour some melting-stuff to the cave, which while may not harm her directly, bring some Nightmare Fuel. The gas of chemical or lack of oxygen, for example.
  • Screw the Money, I Have Rules!: Though she does give up on the money once it looks like FUG has gone too far even for her.
  • The Team:
    Viole's FUG Team: Sia Sia, Reflejo, Viole, Yuto, Horyang, Cassano, Ran, and Nobic.
    Reflejo's FUG Team: Sia Sia, Cassano, Reflejo, Baragav, and Ron Mei.
    Team Nobic: Sia Sia, Nobic, Ran, Dan, and Beta.
  • Unusual Ears: Has rabbit ears.

Antagonists

Team Rachel

    Rachel 

Rachel

Voiced by: Saori Hayami (Japanese), Valerie Rose Lohman (English)

Tower Position: Light Bearer

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

Bam's first and best friend who freed him from a dark prison, but then decides to leave him to search for a starry sky to overcome her fear of the night. Due to her injuries, she's forced to get by through the words she speaks, whether it be using the truth or through lies. Rachel is also an Irregular but was not chosen by the Tower, sneaking in due to Bam forcing the door open right below her.

In Season 1, Rachel goes by the moniker of Michelle Light to evade Bam after realizing that the two of them are in the same test group. However, they're eventually forced to reunite after her legs had become crippled. To continue being with Rachel, Bam decides to become her legs to help her climb the Tower. In the end, Rachel betrays Bam by showing that her legs are fine and pushes him into the dark abyss as she goes on to complete the final 2nd Floor test with everyone else.

Season 2 has Rachel continues to climb the Tower, and manages to escape Khun's watch. She then forms a new team of her own and boards the Hell Train in order to gain a powerful ally in White. Rachel then journeys to the 43rd Floor of Death in order and convinces Wangnan to join her group after his Sweet and Sour team failed in taking away one of her teammates.

On the Floor of Death, Rachel manages to get away from Karaka in order to reach Bam, but is unable to convince him to run away after Bam tells her that he needs to continue going forward. Despite that, Bam allows Rachel to take part in the test that will provide the location of the Thorn, but she is poisoned and knocked out. However, Bam makes a deal with Poe Bidau Gustang to have her healed.


  • Anti-Hero: The author's blog says that she's one of these. She is certainly one of the most ruthless characters.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Khun and Endorsi, who both hate her for her manipulative nature and past relationship with Bam.
  • The Beastmaster: Poe Bidau Gustang leaves her with a gift, a ferocious invisible beast loyal to her.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Attempts to kill Bam by pushing him into dark waters to be eaten, and has continued keeping up the act of being a helpless damsel in front of Aguero for five years afterwards. And he knew, and she knew he knew; she was only keeping up the act so he wouldn't know she knew he knew and so when the time came she could stab him in the back first.
  • Call to Adventure: Once upon a time, a girl somehow found a cave, opened it and made friends with the boy she found inside it. Plot ensues.
  • Can't Catch Up: Her manipulation skills are top-notch, but her over-reliance on having strong allies to do the dirty work means many of her own skills don't grow as fast as they could, leading to Aguero outperforming her as a Light Bearer when they face each other in the Hell Train arc. The Irony there is... she actually performed pretty much at Aguero's level as a Light Bearer when they both started out, with a whole lot less practice under her belt (like Bam, the Tower was, for her, an eye-opener of new experiences). Which argues that her native skill (added to Irregular loophole bonuses) would actually be easily into genius levels, if she bothered to hone and exercise it.
  • Classical Anti-Hero: Her real introduction at the end of the first volume is devoted specifically to showing her lack of classical heroic qualities, and one of the main themes of the story seems to be deconstructing just what those qualities mean.
  • Cool Teacher: For all her faults, she's actually pretty good at teaching when she puts her mind to it. Just ask Bam, who still thinks what she did for him was pretty cool, ulterior motives or not.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Yellow hair, yellow eyes.
  • Damsel in Distress: After getting stabbed by Hoh. However, she’s faking it.
  • Deuteragonist: This story is as much about Rachel as it is about Bam, despite how much she wants sole focus.
  • The Dulcinea Effect: She's Bam's Dulcinea, and the trope starts out playing as straight as they come. What started out simple gets deconstructed like you wouldn't believe. Rachel is very good at playing Dulcinea, but she's a lot more poisonous than she is innocent, and uses her resulting Wounded Gazelle Gambits for her own reasons on just about everybody. Bam was never entirely fooled by her, but his relationship was too important for him to make a fuss about the details for a very long time. And, it is justified in that she was the first person he can remember having any relationship with. This ain't healthy on many, many counts. Including for her world view and mental health, let alone his. Or, anybody else's.
  • Entitled Bastard: When Jahad's forces take Rachel and some of Bam's companions as hostages, Endorsi rescues Bam's companions while leaving Rachel's behind. Despite everything she herself has done, including escaping traps intended to kill Bam's companions and leaving them to die, Rachel feels outrage that Endorsi didn't rescue her too.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Aguero. Both are lighthouse users who are skilled at manipulating others, and both are/were friends with Bam. However, Aguero learns to respect his allies enough to get his hands dirty to work alongside them and even grows to care for them enough to let them strike out more-or-less on their own in a widespread network of interconnections he can call on; while Rachel mostly sees her allies as tools to get her up the Tower, so she can easily completely dump them the minute they become less effective.
  • Evil Cripple: Rachel seems like this, betraying and manipulating everyone to help herself, but as it turns out she's just faking being a cripple to gain this sympathy and help herself more.
  • Face–Heel Turn: While there's evidence suggesting she was a Manipulative Bitch even when she met Bam, she did sincerely care for him. The combination of Bam being The Chosen One and her being manipulated by Headon turned her away from that. However, while this was her Face–Heel Turn chronologically, in story, she's presented as taking this when she pushes Bam into the lake.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: After her true colors are revealed, Rachel is featured in many teams that don't think highly of her as a person or are close to her at all. The only carryover from any of those lineups that cared for her was Yura.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Is extremely jealous of Bam's status as The Chosen One, and it was that jealousy that made her want to climb the Tower herself instead of letting Bam have all the glory.
    • Anybody she deems more good-looking, more lucky, better loved, undeservingly skilled and enjoying more popularity than her will be despised. Especially if a Princess. Doubly especially if Endorsi. The only way to be pretty, female and not on Rachel's list of dispite is... to both have a hard-luck story that involves a thirst for revenge and to prove you'll do anything for Rachel to get it.
  • Hero Antagonist: Another possible angle. Sure, she could be somewhat delusional in her goals and her behavior is far from nice, but they directly connect in many ways with those the Zarhard batch of Irregulars seem to have had when they were climbing. And, they are considered heros, however much the reader may agree or disagree with the outcome. Bam and company are the really odd ducks, by current Tower standards. So, the friction between Rachel and Bam could be seen as more clashing cultural interpretations of appropriate forms of heroism than a simple case of hero vs villain. But, of the two sides, Rachel is definitely down in the darker shades of morally grey by readers' standards.
  • Hero of Another Story: She certainly sees herself as the heroine of, at the very least, her own tale. She wants to make it the main one, however. But, as we mainly get to see things from Bam and company's side, we've pretty much only got her word on that. See below.
  • Hero Killer: In Season 2 Ep 227, she kills Akraptor while Wangnan is held hostage by Yura.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Her main motive. She wants to be the heroine of the story, and will attempt to jam herself into that position by any means necessary. She even tries to get rid of her original body and replace it with a completely different one generated from her idealized self.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: At first, she envied Bam for being a Magnetic Hero, though she later settles for forming friendless alliances as the next best thing.
  • I Know You Know I Know: Was caught in a loop of this with Aguero for a while; he knows she's faking her illness and spies on her with his Lighthouse, but she knows his team is a fence to trap her because she spies on him with her Lighthouse. And, so on and so forth. As of this writing, everyone seems to know what everyone else knows about what they know, so this trope may no longer be in place. But, that could change.
  • Ill Girl: She loses the use of her legs after Hoh stabs her. However, she’s faking it and fools almost nobody; the doctor who examined her said there was no lasting damage.
  • Immune to Fate: Part of the Irregular package. Which plays a major part in completely messing with Hwa's ability to guide Bam through the Hell Train arc, although there are a few hints that misleading her goes back much further than that. There are unknowns about how much Rachel knows about her own "skill", and how much various people within FUG do.
  • Invincible Villain: Played with. On one hand, she and her allies are always one step ahead of Bam and co, to the point where they can Out Gambit Hwaryun, who managed to Out Gambit an opposing FUG faction. It helps that she's an Irregular and is harder for Guides to predict. On the other hand, her reluctance to get her hands dirty makes her seem ineffectual compared to many other tower climbers.
  • Irony: Given her and Bams' interlocking skill-sets, they'd be a pretty unstoppable, hard-to-manipulate, Wave Controller-Lighthouse Keeper and Irregular core to any Tower-shaking team. Shame she can't see that, due to wanting to be the I in Team. She practically hands the awesome over to Aguero, and ensures that everybody dances on others' strings.
  • It Gets Easier: Invoked. She's shaken after killing Akraptor with her own hands, but she tells herself that she'll have to get used to it.
  • Light Is Not Good: Has light skin, light blonde hair, uses a pseudonym of Michelle Light, and is a Light Bearer. Allthough her role as a villain isn't clear, she's still considered an antagonist to Bam is willing to use whatever (and whoever) she can to climb the Tower.
  • Manipulative Bastard: She is; particularly where Bam is concerned. However, Khun has generally seen through her ruses. Unfortunately, he hasn’t spotted all of them.
  • Meaningful Name: According to the author's blog, her name was chosen because "In Sherlock Holmes, there is a reference to the word Rache(Rah-he) that means revenge in German."
  • Mutual Envy: Princess Endorsi Jahad is jealous of Rachel over how dedicated Bam is towards her and would gladly give up her princess privileges to be with him. On the opposite side, Rachel is jealous of Endorsi for being a beautiful princess like a fairytale heroine, while her feelings towards Bam are mixed at best and consist largely of envy.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Downplayed and possibly subverted. She's shaken by how she killed Akraptor and got blood on her hands, but it's implied that she's merely too scared or nervous to do the deed herself easily, since she has no issue with her comrades killing others — however, she still battles with the realisation that not all on Bam's team may be as easily or lightly throw-away as she thought before rationalizing it within her "Tower Tale" framework.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Invoked and played with (what her ultimate role as an antagonist actually is is far from clear). While she does have very solid Lighthouse abilities from the start of her climb, she admits that she'd rather just rely on stronger teammates to rise to the top.
  • Non-P.O.V. Protagonist: For a character who's hardly ever on screen, she provides a lot of fuel for the story, as well as prodding a great deal of the main cast into moving in various important directions. Both deliberately and accidentally; positive and negative.
  • Psychotic Smirk: Shows one after she detonates a bomb in Khun's heart, gloating about how she wanted to kill him with her own hands at the worst possible moment for him.
  • Ridiculously Average Guy: Comes across as this. Except for her being able to use and endure Shinsu… like, well... everybody else. She's a quick study, however, to get as good with lightboxes as fast as she does. Like Bam, she starts knowing very little about basic aspects of the Tower, and it puts her at a disadvantage. According to Word of God, she is indeed an Irregular like Bam, which means she might have abilities we haven't seen but if so there's been no hint of them beyond that.
  • Secret Identity: Goes under the name of Michelle Light for a while.
  • Sexier Alter Ego: Invoked during the Hidden Floor arc. Her Hidden Floor avatar, Icarus, was deliberately crafted to be more powerful and beautiful than her current drab appearance.
  • Smug Snake: Gleefully prances about her room when she thinks no one’s looking, and has given “there’s no way you could understand my motivation” rants before.
  • The Team:
    Crown Game Team: Rachel, Endorsi, and Ghost.
    Hide-and-Seek Team B: Michelle Light (Rachel), Bam, Endorsi, Hatz, Hoh, Serena, Shopin, Chunhwa, Death Ryan, Mauchi, Paracule, Levin, Full Black, and Grey.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Rachel, Bam, Khun, Rak, Endorsi, Anaak, Shibisu, Lauroe, Hatz, Aleksai, Blarouse, Chunhwa, Sunwoo, Levin, Paracule, and Ghost.
    Khun's Original Season 2 Team: Rachel, Khun, Ran, Nobic, Dan, Gyetang, Apple, and Michael.
    Rachel's Hell Train Dallar Show Team: Rachel, Hoaqin (White), Yura, Daniel, Raguel, Buelsar, Cassano, Traveller and Anna.
    Rachel's 43rd Floor Expedition Team: Rachel, Hoaqin (White), Yura, Cassano, and Traveller.
    Rachel's 43rd Floor Team: Rachel, Hoaqin (White), Yura, Traveller, Wangnan, and Miseng.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Rachel is the Tomboy, as described by Bam to Black March, to Girly Girl idol-singer Yura, who also happens to be the closest thing Rachel has to a friend.
  • The Unchosen One: Rareish anti-villainous (or whatever) example; kicking herself into a, if not the, protagonist role via Screw Destiny seems to be what motivates her entire plot arc. Headon basically seemed to promise her a way to become Unchosen, but... it remains to be seen if she can manage that. For now, she's a Wannabe with a very good shot. However, please note: if she hadn't tried to hijack Bam's Chosen One status in the first place, he'd still be stuck in that cave, bored out of his gourd and left not knowing enough to know that getting out was even possible. Additionally, she knows about Bam's role as Arlene Grace's child who will gain Enryu's Thorn and change the tower, but she still wants to take that role for herself.
  • Walking Spoiler: In fact, even the fact that she can walk is a spoiler!
  • We Can Rule Together: Once she discovers Wangnan has the same ring as Karaka and that he's the Prince of the Red-Light District, she asks him to team up with her in exchange for sparing Miseng and getting Cassano to return Horyang's half of their devil, which he reluctantly and grudgingly accepts — not just for Horyang's sake, but Miseng and Cassano's, too. Oh, and for a chance at Rachel: she's cool with it.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Pretends that her injury makes her unable to walk to manipulate others into helping her.
  • Youthful Freckles: Sports them along her nose. It's implied that the freckles are supposed to make her look ugly, as she rids herself of them for her "Icarus" avatar.

    Ghost 

Ghost

Tower Position: Spear Bearer

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/akryung_4161.jpg

A huge, mysterious hulking monster of unknown origin; he kept Rak in check during the Crown Game, immediately passed the Spear Bearer's exam, and slaughtered everybody except Rachel and Endorsi in the preliminaries. He may or may not be an Irregular, whether the comments about the Irregular in his team applied to him or Rachel is unclear as of now.


    Ha Yura 

Ha Yura

Tower Position: Light Bearer

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yuraha_8718.jpg

A popular D-Rank Regular of the Ha family who performs concerts as an idol singer. She's actually a part of Rachel's group, and boards the Hell Train to keep Bam from running into her. Yura's team faces off against Bam's team during the Train City tournament.

Following the Hell Train's Dallar Show, Yura is one of the remaining Regulars still a part of Rachel's group as they make their way to the forbidden 43rd Floor.


  • Arc Villain: For Bam's team during the Train City tournament.
  • Black Sheep: A lesser variant. Word of God has noted her to be a "weirdo" of the Ha Family, having skills outside her family's muscle power and, although her spec is good, it isn't like the original Ha Family style, like Yuri's for example. Her mother's backstory also shows that Yura is visually distinct from other Ha members, as she lacks their brown hair and eyes (the blue is inherited from her father).
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: When Bam angrily chastises her for nearly killing her fan, she basically mentions that her fans are expendable.
  • Cool Shades: Black sunglasses.
  • Dark Action Girl: Shows off her superiority in shinsu usage in a one-on-one bet against Bam. Then we find out that her shinsu mastery is only because she's carrying a support item that boosts her Shinsu resistance. Her true combat capability is thus still unknown.
  • The Dreaded: Her family name puts a lot of people on edge, which is part of the reason she was able to create a team so easily.
  • Everything's Better with Sparkles: Heck, even her eyes sparkle. This turns out to be a genetic trait of the cursed clan she half-descends from.
  • Idol Singer: Her current profession. Though she appears to have quit the job in order to board the Hell Train.
  • Improbable Weapon User: She occasionally uses her suitcase as a weapon.
  • Jerkass: Not only does she not care about her current teammates (even killing one outright), she injures the person, Hana Yu, that she knows is a devoted fan of hers.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Calls out Bam for being too clingy to Rachel. A lot of readers will agree that Bam chasing after Rachel does feel uncomfortable at times, even to the point where it comes off like Bam is stalking her. It doesn't help that immediately after this, Bam meets Rachel for the first time and completely flips out, telling her she's not allowed to leave him behind.
  • Lured into a Trap: Turns out that the "Crazy Ball" match was a trap set up by her in order to distract everyone away from Rachel's group taking over the Hell Train. She teleports away using her suitcase after Rachel makes her move.
  • Nom de Mom: Justified due to the culture of the Tower, which places importance on the parent with the more powerful family connection. Yura's mother was a Ha, one of the Ten Great Families, while her father was from a cursed clan.
  • Out of Focus: Her time in the spotlight is currently non-existent after joining up with Rachel's group on the Hell Train. However, she starts to get more screen-time following the Name Hunt Station arc.
  • Plot Device: Her teleportation suitcase.
  • Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: Walks up to an ongoing all-out brawl to ask everyone remaining to become her Hell Train team...which they do.
  • Revenge: Her mother was murdered by their own family, so she's joined FUG to get revenge against them and the rest of the ten families.
  • Separated at Birth: In a very weird way. She was originally supposed to have a twin brother, but the curse put on her father's side of the family made it so that males born will have a higher risk of death in the womb. On the Hell Train's Hidden Floor, her mother made a deal with Big Breeder Hwang in order to have both children born—meaning that her brother was born as a data being while Yura's own data copy died in the womb. She eventually meets her "brother" later on in the arc.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Kills one of her Hell Train teammates for gloating about their team's first victory.
  • The Team:
    Yura's Hell Train Team: Yura and Danhwa.
    Rachel's Hell Train Dallar Show Team: Yura, Rachel, Hoaqin (White), Daniel, Raguel, Buelsar, Cassano, Traveller and Anna.
    Rachel's 43rd Floor Expedition Team: Yura, Rachel, Hoaqin (White), Cassano, and Traveller.
    Rachel's 43rd Floor Team: Yura, Rachel, Hoaqin (White), Traveller, Wangnan, and Miseng.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Yura is the idol-singer Girly Girl to Tomboy Rachel, and she also happens to be the closest thing Rachel has to a friend (even if it's a little one-sided).
  • Tracking Device: Has one for Rachel located in her hair. When it was put in, or whether or not Rachel was even aware of this is unknown. Pretty funny for someone who calls Bam out on being to clingy to Rachel.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Self explanatory.

    Apple 

Apple

Tower Position: Scout, Light Bearer

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/appletog_3481.jpg

Scout and information gatherer of Khun's season 2 team.


  • Mission Control: Owns a Lighthouse and doubles as a Light Bearer for Aguero's Team.
  • The Mole: For FUG.
  • The Team
    Khun's Original Season 2 Team: Apple, Gyetang, Ran, Dan, Khun, Rachel, Nobic, and Michael.
  • Uncanny Valley Makeup: Not as bad as some of the page's example, but Apple is notable to wear the most makeup of all the characters introduced so far.

    Michael 

Michael

Tower Position: Wave Controller

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/michaeltog_8525.jpg

Medic and Wave Controller of Khun's season 2 team.


  • Eyes Always Shut: A classic example. He keeps them shut when he puts up his facade, but opens them when he reveals his true persona as a member of FUG.
  • The Medic: With some Deadly Doctor thrown in on the side to complete the package.
  • The Mole: Apple's partner.
  • Nice Guy: Seems to be the most friendly of the team.
  • Nonindicative Name: Medic, not Missionary. And, a dangerous one, too: unless he suddenly whips out FUG pamphlets to post through the door, don't buy his shtick.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Always shown to be smiling
  • Stepford Smiler: He even smiles while poisoning Gyetang.
  • The Team
    Khun's Original Season 2 Team: Michael, Gyetang, Ran, Dan, Khun, Rachel, Nobic, and Apple.
  • Troll: He joins a mission intended to sabotage Bam, partially because he was ordered, but he also states that he enjoys getting the chance to screw Khun over a second time.
  • Unmoving Plaid: His clothing.
