Characters / Tower of God: Rankers

Go To

Warning! Tropes and character descriptions will contain spoilers!


Rankers are people who have already climbed the Tower, and are further split between normal Rankers and High Rankers, who achieved a high ranking even among them. In short, they are all pretty badass. Other than the main characters, Irregulars, members of the Jahad Empire, and Princesses of Jahad are largely Rankers as well, but are listed on their own pages.

    In General 
  • The Ageless: Climbing The Tower gives them eternal youth (with the exception of Hendrock Family - they are... special). This immortality (more specifically greatly lengthened life spans) is a specific reward for passing a Floor near the very end, so some very high Regulars also fit in with this.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: All of them are kinda odd compared to the more normal Regulars, but as individual Rankers they get focus it's shown to be more of a coping mechanism to deal with the trauma of climbing the Tower.
  • Knight in Sour Armor: All of them that aren't outright evil are pretty world weary with the current system. This is because, to climb the Tower, they had to abandon friendships and betray people for personal advancement.
  • Older Than They Look: As Rankers who have climbed the Tower with the power to use Shinsu, they are all nigh immortal and much older than they look.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Some border on Time Abyss.

Second Floor Rankers

    Lero-Ro 

Lero-Ro

Voiced by: Kenjiro Tsuda (Japanese), Trent Mills (English)

Tower Position: Light Bearer, Lightning User

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

Ranker and exam supervisor for the 2nd Floor, he takes care of the Regulars that arrive on the Floor of Tests. He also trains the Light Bearers, and Aguero confides in him.

After the events of the Submerged Fish Hunt test, Lero-Ro quits his job on the 2nd Floor and goes to meet Wolhaiksong on the 77th Floor to find out the truth about what's going on with the odd events surrounding Bam. After finding Hachuling, Lero-Ro becomes a new intern for Wolhaiksong, and takes on a job to infiltrate the Workshop Battle to stop the creation of a dangerous weapon that FUG is trying to create.


    Quant Blitz 

Quant Blitz

Voiced by: Hiroyuki Yoshino (Japanese), Xander Mobus (English)

Tower Position: Scout, Flame User

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

The 2nd Floor Instructor of the scouts with a temper as fiery as his hair and all the maturity of a elementary school kid. Despite having such a persona, he is still a fierce and sharp-witted fighter. He served as the primary opponent to the Regulars during the Hide-and-seek test, and he's also related to Quaetro.

After being fired from his job on the 2nd Floor, he left with Lero-Ro to go to the 77th Floor and find Wolhaiksong. Alongside, Lero-Ro, Quant becomes a new intern for Wolhaiksong as the two of them go about infiltrating the Workshop Battle.


    Yu Hansung 

Yu Hansung

Voiced by: Daisuke Kishio (Japanese), Lucien Dodge (English)

Tower Position: Wave Controller, Anima, Cutter, Circle User

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

The Test Administrator of the Floor of Test, second in command to Evankhell. He is a genius in many ways, looks like a very attractive woman and is known among the Regulars for two things: His devious, scheming personality and his complete and utter addiction to instant coffee. He really likes any kind of instant food.

Yu Hansung also has a younger data version of himself within the Hidden Floor. His data self works alongside Bam and company in an attempt to escape from said Floor's data rulers.


  • Agent Peacock: Dresses quite well, even when in casual. Always has fabulous hair.
  • Almighty Janitor: Based on ability alone, he became ranked as a High Ranker. His power was even said to surprise the Vice-Commander of RED.
  • Badass Boast: His entire confrontation with Ren boils down to that.
  • The Beastmaster: He is an Anima.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Appears to be a Reasonable Authority Figure at first. The reality is quite different.
  • The Chessmaster: Most of the events in season one can be traced back to his plotting. His data-memory self proves he's always been the plotting kind.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Yellow/Gold.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Very feminine looking, especially with his hair down.
  • Foreshadowing: Yu Hansung's smile after Bam responds to him about the garbage at the top of the Tower hinted heavily at his true feelings on the matter. He, himself, does not care about any of those riches and wants something that would change the Tower. Bam likely proved himself to be just the person to make those waves with his response.
  • Inseries Nickname: Coffee Machine.
  • Insufferable Genius: Called the "genius Wave Controller", and he is quite fond of his intelligence. Even as a Regular, his skill was way OP for his Floor Level — and, bleeding proud of it, thanks. If his data-memory is anything to go by, that is.
  • Kick the Dog: Blackmailing Bam. Messing with Bam — past, present; same difference.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Very good at making others play along with his schemes without them being aware of it.
  • The Mole: He is a member of FUG pretending to be a part of Jahad's Empire.
  • Mole in Charge: He serves as a Test Administrator on the Floor of Tests for Jahad's Empire when in actuality, he's a member of FUG that's fighting against Jahad.
  • Must Have Caffeine: Subtle, but there: the sheer number of times he's spotted with a cup of the stuff... And, yes: there's a personal ritual, too. Which. Will. Be. Followed.
  • No One Gets Left Behind: A copy of his younger self tries very hard to escape with his fellow companions without leaving them behind, leading Endorsi and Bam to wonder whether he was always the Bitch in Sheep's Clothing he is today. According to the Snake Charmer, yes, he was, and he was only trying to help all his fellows escape for the sense of accomplishment and making himself look good. But considering the Snake Charmer is a Manipulative Bastard himself, it is questionable how much that was actually true. Since Yu Hansung continues to show genune concern for the data people well after the opportunity to make himself good has passed.
  • Obstructive Bureaucrat: Has the authority and strength to do whatever he wants on the Floor of Test.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Nobody thought that the Director was a GUY.
  • Red Baron: Submerged Fish.
  • Summon Bigger Fish: Pulls this on Ren and it is awesome. His epithet itself is the "Submerged Fish".
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: He and Bam are technically on the same side and fighting for the same cause, but due to him Bam doesn't exactly enjoy working with a copy of his younger self.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Instant anything, but particularly coffee. The quicker the better, so oodles of noodles are go! The story behind it, however, is much less goofy than you'd think.
  • Villainous Rescue: Is one of the FUG Rankers that helps fend off Jahad's Royal Army to protect Bam and the other Regulars.

    Lo Po Bia Ren 

Lo Po Bia Ren

Tower Position: Wave Controller, Anima

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lopobia3_4930.jpg

Introduced as Yuga, he seems to have taken that Wave Controller Instructor's guise (a sheeplike, horned costume that you wear like a ghost costume of bed sheets and a smile that looks like mustard on rice). He has multiple Shinheuh stored inside his body/suit and has the ability to control these creatures, especially aquatic ones, like the Bull. Moreover, the youngest/newest member of the RED.

Ren was tasked by the Jahad Family to sneak himself into the 2nd Floor in order to assassinate Anaak due to her being a Fake Jahad Princess. However, his efforts are stopped by the arrival of the Ranker Princess, Yuri Jahad.


    Evankhell 

Evankhell

Tower Position: Wave Controller, Fisherman, Flame User

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/evankhells3.png

Rank: 60

The director of the Floor of Test. Very strict and very tall, Evankhell has agreed to a complex testing system of the Second Floor for reasons unknown. Doesn't appear during the actual events on the Floor of Test, but appears much later.


  • Asskicking Equals Authority: She gained her position as ruler of the Floor of Test by killing the previous ruler.
  • Blood Knight: Considering how she got her job, it should come as no surprise that she loves to fight strong enemies. She was willing and able to take on two high rankers close to her level and an army of about 30 normal rankers at the same time without even using her full power.
  • The Dreaded: Everyone speaks in an at least very respectful tone about her, and everyone fears what might happen if she finds out how screwy things went.
  • The Ghost: For the entire 1st Season (despite it taking place on her floor), since she's on vacation. Only descriptions from Rankers allude to her history. Really, it was the only way for the plot to happen. If she was there half of the events would not have been able to occur.
  • The Mentor: She takes Bam as her apprentice, for fun.
  • Playing with Fire: Her elemental nature. The orb she created contained enough fire inside to become a small sun and nearly incinerated all the other combatants on the 44th Floor.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Turns out to be a woman when she finally makes her appearance.
  • Sink-or-Swim Mentor: Her idea of training Bam is to send him to appropriate battle locations. She selects the battlegrounds and forbids Bam from using the red thorn or Black March without her permission (to build his basic skills).
  • Statuesque Stunner: Not bad looking and capable of shifting her size to be seven meters tall.

Test Admin Rankers

    Mule Love 

Mule Love

Tower Position: Spear Bearer, Circle Ability User

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mulelove_7201.jpg

Cute but serious, the Administrator of the 20th Floor Test. He oversaw the Survival Round, the "World's Strongest Regular" challenge, and created the Trustworthy Room test for Viole. He has a "I do what I want type of attitude."


    Augusgus 

Augusgus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/augusgus2_7101.jpg

The Test Director of the 20th Floor, and Mule Love's superior.


  • Bling of War: His attire.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Is a member of Chicken Love Club.
  • Code Name: Gusgus. Not that hard to guess.
  • Da Chief: A rather mild example, but an example nonetheless.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Easily manipulates Love by acting like the latter screwed up trying to face off against Viole one-on-one in the Trustworthy Room test since it basically announced Viole's existence to the Tower. In actuality, Love did exactly what FUG wanted.
  • The Mole: Secretly a member of FUG while working under the Jahad Empire.
  • Mole in Charge: Works as the 20th Floor's Test Director for Jahad's Empire when in actuality, he's a mole for FUG that fights against Jahad.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Not shown in battle, but his status as a Ranker and his appearance automatically earns him this.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Has a red sclera and golden irises.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: A white-haired Ranker who's a part of FUG.

    Noma 

Noma

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/noma_4783.jpg

The Test Administrator of the 21st Floor. His test for Viole, and company, is to kill Urek Mazino for stealing the Zigena flowers.

Other Rankers

    Evan Edroch 

Evan Edroch

Voiced by: Kazuyuki Okitsu (Japanese), Kyle McCarley (English)

Tower Position: Guide

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

Princess Yuri's Guide, and a High Ranker who gave Bam a high-grade Pocket when the boy first entered the Tower. Evan sees himself reflected in Bam, and travels around with Yuri wherever she desires to go.


  • Badass Adorable: Word of God says his rank is "about 100th".
  • Butt-Monkey: Constantly suffers through Yuri's physical abuse.
  • Chew Toy: Being Yuri's Guide does not come without a price.
  • Cowardly Lion: One of the biggest worrywarts and borrowers of trouble in the whole Tower. Packs more punch than most, as well as a surprising amount of durability.
  • Determinator: A fairly quite one, for sure. But, no matter how off-script Yuri is going to try throwing herself, he's always there to make sure she at least looks before she leaps over the worst cliffs. When he seriously puts his foot down, she does pause to take it in. Grit... and, the patient drip of water on stone.
  • Expy: The Archer to Yuri's Rin Tohsaka, as the more powerful but beleaguered assistant to a spirited Ojou.
  • Our Dwarves Are All the Same: Not this time. Evan is one of the Silver Dwarves, a race known for their short stature, silver hair, and being Guides. Only the stature is common with fantasy dwarves, since neither he nor his race are known for their tinkering or facial hair.
  • Precision F-Strike: He utters one at 2nd Floor when Yuri threw him down from cliffs while others present lampshading someone really needs to utter those words. The word crazy, I mean.
    — Evan: "YOU DAMN 'CRAZY PRINCESS!!!"
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Poor sod; he got saddled with one of the worst.
  • Hyper-Competent Sidekick: He is ranked higher than Yuri, although according to SIU, Guides (which Evan is) are generally weaker at combat, while Yuri appears to be a combat-focused Fisherman, so she might still be tougher than him in a fight. His higher ranking is most likely due to his influence as Chief Guide of Jahad Royalty.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Yuri's red.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: While Yuri isn't as big as other examples, Evan is one of the smallest people to have appeared.
