Leesoo's Graduation Team

    Ship Leesoo 

Ship Leesoo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/leesootog.jpg
Tower Position: Scout

A seemingly average-looking guy who provides the series a ton of comedic moments. Leesoo 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, Leesoo is somehow able to get himself paired up with two monster Regulars, Hatsu and Anak, 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, Leesoo 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 Anak from the Tower given her Fake Princess status. Like Koon, Leesoo was there when he learned of Rachel's betrayal; meaning that the rest of his team also knows. Leesoo also leads his team at the Workshop Battle and Name Hunt Station. The former of which turns into a mission to help Baam break away from FUG while the latter has the team take on Kaiser's faction in order to get Androssi'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 Shinsoo barrier means he was choosen to fail, Ship says Screw Destiny and pushes his way through the barrier through pure willpower.
  • 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 Baam, but if one looks closely, there is at least two woman who like him, Serena and Anak.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Brown.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: A non-romantic example, but Anak and Hatsu have physically dragged him around when he doesn't do what they want.
  • Dragged by the Collar: How Anak dragged a protesting Ship off the stage after agreeing to take part in the test.
  • The Drag-Along: After Anak agrees to taking part in the special examination with Baam, 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 Anak and Hatsu show off their skills, then revealing his Determinator nature by having him push through Lero-Ro's Shinsoo barrier test with sheer willpower, and finally having him demonstrate his intelligence by being the only person to perfectly solve Yu Han Sung'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. Leesoo 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 Hatsu and Anak, 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: Leesoo, Anak, and Hatsu.
    Hide-and-Seek Team A: Leesoo, Koon, Anak, Hwa Ryun, Laure, Aleksai, Blarouse, Sunwoo, Rozeal, Kancho, Goon, Erik, Leon 3, and First Emperor.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Leesoo, Koon, Baam, Rachel, Rak, Androssi, Anak, Laure, Hatsu, Aleksai, Blarouse, Chunhwa, Sunwoo, Levin, Parakewl, and Akryung.
    Team Leesoo: Leesoo, Anak, Androssi, Hatsu, Laure, 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 Shinsoo 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.

    Anak Zahard 

Anak Zahard

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/anaktog.jpg
Tower Position: Fisherman

A solitary lizard girl who spent a great time of her life on the outer 43rd Floor with Garam Zahard before being chosen to enter the inner Tower. Anak is out to get revenge for her parents' murder by killing the entire Zahard 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 Androssi, Ran, Blarode and Varagarv.

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

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

In season 2, Anak is currently climbing the Tower as part of Leesoo'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 Zahard 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 Koon Ran in the Workshop Battle, though it's hard to tell how it would have ended since Parakewl interrupted the match.
  • Arc Villain: Towards Baam 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 Baam could win the Crown Game, which resulted in Baam losing in the final round.
  • Berserk Button: Anything related to the Zahards makes her blood boil. And then Ren reveals he killed her mother.
  • 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.
    • BFS: Her new weapon after Yuri takes the Green April is an enormous spear, which is at least 15 feet long. Justified because Anak is used to the Green April's Ignition, which is even larger.
  • Legacy Character: She's actually the daughter of the original Anak Zahard.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Agile enough to fight evenly with Ran and strong enough to disable Novick 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 Androssi.
  • Older Than They Look: About 300 when season 1 starts.
  • Out of Focus: Despite season 1 going to great lengths to develop her Fake Zahard Princess status, Anak has remained mostly as support for Leesoo's team in season 2. The lone exception being her developing rivalry with Koon 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: Anak, Leesoo, and Hatsu.
    Hide-and-Seek Team A: Anak, Leesoo, Koon, Hwa Ryun, Laure, Aleksai, Blarouse, Sunwoo, Rozeal, Kancho, Goon, Erik, Leon 3, and First Emperor.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Anak, Leesoo, Koon, Baam, Rachel, Rak, Androssi, Laure, Hatsu, Aleksai, Blarouse, Chunhwa, Sunwoo, Levin, Parakewl, and Akryung.
    Team Leesoo: Anak, Leesoo, Androssi, Hatsu, Laure, Aleksai, Vespa, and Verdi.
  • Tsundere: There are times when she'll get pissed whenever Leesoo looks at another woman.
  • Walking Spoiler: Knowing about Anak's past gives away a major plot-point that is revealed throughout the Floor of Tests saga.

    Androssi Zahard 

Androssi Zahard

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/androssitog.jpg
Tower Position: Fisherman

A haughty, cynical, self-centered woman who was chosen as a Zahard 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 Anak, Ran, Blarode and Varagarv.

In season 1, Androssi quickly establishes herself as one of the strongest Regulars during Baam's appearance on the Floor of Tests given her Zahard Princess status. However, throughout the 2nd Floor, she develops a caring, yet vitriolic relationship, with Anak due to actually wanting to help the Fake Princess climb the Tower, who Androssi is technically an aunt for. Her interactions with Baam 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 Baam to be hers at any chance she gets.

In season 2, Androssi climbs the Tower with Leesoo's 2nd Floor graduation team. She supported the team at Workshop helping Baam 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 Anak from being hunted by the Lo Po Bia Family. The result of Androssi's name being stolen is Leesoo's team being at war with the people of the station. After Baam made a deal with Kaiser to have Androssi's name given back to her, Androssi joined up with Baam's Hell Train group in order to meet with Garam Zahard on the Floor of Death.


  • Action Girl: Androssi 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 Baam and Anak have really had an effect on her self-caring persona , although after Bam's alleged death it reverted back to a larger degree. In Baam's case, she ends up developing feelings for him.
  • Combat Stilettos: Subverted. They tend to break in the worst possible moments.
  • Cool Big Sis: She gradually grows a soft spot for Anak and Baam. She also gains a rather aloof one in the form of Yuri Zahard. 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 Akryung 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 Baam.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Everyone she teleports reacts like they're lucky to survive.
  • Femme Fatale: Noted to be alluring and deadly at the same time by people who observe her fighting.
  • 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 Androssi's hatred for her is at a personal level due to being jealous of how obsessed Baam is with her, even if his obsession isn't romantic.
  • Large Ham: On occasion, especially when people aim attacks at her face.
    "Your crime of attempting to kick the almighty Androssi'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 Zahard Princess at that level it's all she needs most of the time.
  • 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 Akryung.
  • 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 Androssi 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 Zahard, since King Zahard strictly prohibits them from forming relationships with men on penalty of death and she has a crush on Baam, who poses a big threat to King Zahard's rule.
  • 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: Androssi, Rachel and Akryung.
    Hide-and-Seek Team B: Androssi, Baam, Michelle Light (Rachel), Hatsu, Ho, Serena, Shopin, Chunhwa, Des Lion, Mauchi, Parakewl, Levin, Full Black, and Grey.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Androssi, Baam, Anak, Leesoo, Koon, Rachel, Rak, Androssi, Laure, Hatsu, Aleksai, Blarouse, Chunhwa, Sunwoo, Levin, Parakewl, and Akryung.
    Team Leesoo: Androssi, Anak, Leesoo, Hatsu, Laure, Aleksai, Vespa, and Verdi.
    Baam's 43rd Floor Team: Androssi, Baam, Koon, Hwa Ryun, Boro, Sachi, Irure and Hockney.
    Baam's Hidden Floor Quarantine Team: Baam, Androssi, (data human) Yu Han Sung, Batis.
  • Teleport Spam: Uses teleportation in battle by using Bong Bong to teleport herself and Varagarv hundreds of meters into the air, then kicking him into the ground, causing some damage even to the Madeof Iron Mad Dog of Yama
  • Teleporters and Transporters: Her teleporter tool, Bong Bong.
  • Tsundere: Very much so towards Baam.

    Hatsu 

Hatsu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hatsutog.jpg
Tower Position: Scout

The son of a swordsmith that claims to follow the spirit of swordsmanship. Hatsu 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, Hatsu manages to use his swordsmanship skills to go toe to toe with Anak during his 2nd Floor introduction. Throughout the Floor of Tests, Hatsu 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, Hatsu is currently climbing the Tower with Leesoo's 2nd Floor graduation team. He's become so famous at this point that the mere rumor that someone managed to beat 'that Hatsu guy' in battle is their main selling point as a mercenary. Due to Cassano breaking his sentimental sword, Hatsu 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 Shinsoo manipulation to turn his swords into these.
  • Big Damn Heroes: He saves Team Novick 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 Hatsu'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 Zahard 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, Hatsu is off doing his own thing within the Archimedes Acorn Workshop away from the rest of Leesoo'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 Emile 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.
  • Ronin: Though probably a Korean version of a masterless Samurai.
  • Samurai: More of a Ronin, 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 Hatsu guy" seems to be a major accomplishment.
  • The Team:
    Crown Game Team: Hatsu, Leesoo, and Anak.
    Hide-and-Seek Team B: Hatsu, Androssi, Baam, Michelle Light (Rachel), Ho, Serena, Shopin, Chunhwa, Des Lion, Mauchi, Parakewl, Levin, Full Black, and Grey.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Hatsu, Androssi, Baam, Anak, Leesoo, Koon, Rachel, Rak, Androssi, Laure, Aleksai, Blarouse, Chunhwa, Sunwoo, Levin, Parakewl, and Akryung.
    Team Leesoo: Hatsu, Androssi, Anak, Leesoo, Laure, Aleksai, Vespa, and Verdi.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Compared to powerhouses like the Zahard 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 Laure 

Phonsekal Laure

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/phonsekal_9599.jpg
Tower Position: Wave Controller

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

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

In season 2, Laure continues to climb the Tower as part of Leesoo'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 Baam develop his shinsoo 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 Leesoo, 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 Shinsoo 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: Laure, Ho, and Serena.
    Hide-and-Seek Team A: Laure, Anak, Leesoo, Koon, Hwa Ryun, Aleksai, Blarouse, Sunwoo, Rozeal, Kancho, Goon, Erik, Leon 3, and First Emperor.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Laure, Anak, Leesoo, Koon, Baam, Rachel, Rak, Androssi, Hatsu, Aleksai, Blarouse, Chunhwa, Sunwoo, Levin, Parakewl, and Akryung.
    Team Leesoo: Laure, Anak, Leesoo, Androssi, Hatsu, Aleksai, Vespa, and Verdi.

    Aleksai Amigochaz 

Aleksai Amigochaz

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aleksai_3968.jpg
Tower Position: Spear-Bearer

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 Leesoo'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.
  • Out of Focus: Compared to his other teammates on Team Leesoo, 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, Laure, Anak, Leesoo, Koon, Hwa Ryun, Blarouse, Sunwoo, Rozeal, Kancho, Goon, Erik, Leon 3, and First Emperor.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Aleksai, Laure, Anak, Leesoo, Koon, Baam, Rachel, Rak, Androssi, Hatsu, Blarouse, Chunhwa, Sunwoo, Levin, Parakewl, and Akryung.
    Team Leesoo: Aleksai, Laure, Anak, Leesoo, Androssi, Hatsu, 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.

Floor of Test Graduates

    Hwa Ryun 

Hwa Ryun

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hwa_9733.jpg
CLICK for Hwa Ryun's masked appearance up to the end of the Crown Game 
Tower Position: Guide

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

In season 1, Hwa Ryun is introduced as a mysterious character wearing a mask and tight neoprene suit during the Crown Game, and dominated the last round until Baam slashed her face with shinsoo. Since then, Hwa Ryun's wears an eyepatch, let her hair down, and pretends to take part in the wave controller class alongside Baam. In the epilogue, it's revealed that upon Rachel's arrival into the Tower, Yu Han Sung had tasked Hwa Ryun 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 Baam into the organization after Rachel betrayed him.

In season 2, Hwa Ryun continues to watch over Baam as he climbs the Tower as FUG's leader, Jyu 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 Baam break away from the terrorist organization with the powerful Thorn at hand. After Workshop, she continues to guide Baam by helping him board the Hell Train express to chase after Rachel, and supports Baam's companions on the Floor of Death in order to have them fight against Hell Joe, who Hwa Ryun holds a major grudge against.


  • Affectionate Nickname: Calls Baam "My God" despite knowing how much it irks him (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".
  • 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.
  • 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 Baam's Guide.
  • 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.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: In the Crown Game, she sweeps the floor with everybody except Androssi.
  • Damsel in Distress: Is used as a hostage to prevent Baam 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.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: A lot of her outfits give off this feel.
  • Enigmatic Minion: She's a 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 Baam 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 Baam.
    • 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 Baam'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.
  • 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 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.
  • 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 Baam.
    • 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.
  • Witch Species: She is from the Red Witch clan, who are known for their bright red hair and being Guides.
  • Informed Attractiveness: In one of his blogposts, SIU stated that the most beautiful women introduced in season one was Hwa Ryun 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.
  • Jerk Ass: She has her share of sarcasm.
  • Kuu Dere: Silent, but kind of adorable.
  • Magic Staff / Simple 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/Baam, her background and motivations are largely unknown.
  • Not So Different: States that she and Baam are alike but ignored his attempt at getting her to elaborate on what she meant.
  • 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 Emile, whose omniscient-like abilities really screws up Hwa Ryun'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.
  • 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: Hwa Ryun is the first character to outright refer to Rachel as a bitch.
  • Power of Trust: It's been pointed out that Baam 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 Baam 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, Baam 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.
  • “The Reason You Suck” Speech: Gives one to Baam 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 Baam when the two share a conversation. Always willing to aid him, but never divulging the reasons for why.
  • 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 Baam's naivety.
  • The Team
    Crown Game Team: Hwa Ryun (Mask), Goon and Yung.
    Hide-and-Seek Team A: Hwa Ryun, Leesoo, Koon, Anak, Laure, Aleksai, Blarouse, Sunwoo, Rozeal, Kancho, Goon, Erik, Leon 3, and First Emperor.
    Viole's FUG Team: Yuto (Hwa Ryun), Viole, Reflejo, Xia Xia, Horyang, Cassano, Ran, and Novick.
    Hwa Ryun's Rescue Party: Hwa Ryun, Horyang and Novick.
    Baam's Hell Train Team: Hwa Ryun, Rak, Baam, Boro, Hanool, and Hana.
    Baam's Hell Train Dallar Show Team: Hwa Ryun, Baam, Koon, Rak, Wangnan, Yihwa, Boro, Aka, Sachi, Hanool, Danhwa, Moontari, Bero, Irure, Pompidou, and Vicente.
    Baam's 43rd Floor Expedition Team: Hwa Ryun, Baam, Koon, Rak, Yihwa, Boro, Sachi, Danhwa, and Irure.
    Baam's 43rd Floor Team: Hwa Ryun, Baam, Koon, Androssi, Boro, Sachi, Irure and Hockney.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With Rachel's group after being held hostage by them in the Hell Train.
  • Walking Spoiler: A lot about Hwa Ryun is revealed once readers see her true role in the season 1 epilogue.
  • 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 Novick, 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.
  • 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.

    Parakewl 

Parakewl

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/parakewl_5261.jpg
Tower Position: Spear-Bearer

A Dirty Coward Regular who will do anything to reach the top for his important "Spear-Bearer Revolution" goal. Parakewl always matches his opinion to the majority, and acts more like you would expect people in a survival game to act.

In season 1, Parakewl is introduced during the Hide-and-Seek test where he manages to pass despite his dirty antics causing trouble for his B-Team. However, he agrees to work alongside Baam's Submerged Fish Hunt Team in order to pass the Floor of Tests.

In season 2, Parakewl had been climbing the Tower on a different team alongside Rak. He takes part in the Workshop Battle where his crazy antics come into play once more.


  • Action Survivor: His ability to survive despite all odds is something that constantly bewilders both the audience and the characters.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Green skinned.
  • The Bus Came Back:
    • Unlike the other Regulars who ended up in What Happened to the Mouse? territory after passing the 2nd Floor, Parakewl makes a return for the Workshop Battle. It's implied that he was climbing the Tower with a team alongside Rak.
    • He ends up back in What Happened to the Mouse? territory as he's been nowhere to be seen throughout the Hell Train saga.
  • Dirty Coward: Among other things, he abandons Hatsu during Hide-And-Seek game.
  • Hypocrite: Calls Koon "trash" for "abandoning" Baam before the Submerged Fish test, despite intending to do so himself before!
  • In-Series Nickname:
    • Rak chooses to call him "Pickle" due to his green skin.
    • He's also been referred to as Goby (Mudskipper)
  • It's All About Me: One of the most selfish characters introduced in the story. And that's saying something considering how much of a Crapsack World the Tower is.
  • Jerkass: Likes to call others "trash".
  • Karma Houdini: Despite being obnoxious and useless, he's still somehow been able to climb the Tower.
  • Kick Them While They Are Down: Had no problem with ditching Mauchi after the latter failed to pass the Hide-and-Seek test.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: In the Submerged Fish Hunt Test, he throws his spear at numerous enemies before it was time to do so.
  • The Load: He is yet to show any particularly useful ability.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Talks like he is the biggest fish around, when in reality, it's a wonder the cast still remembers his name at all.
  • Smug Snake: Or cheap dirty bastard who makes it very easy for the audience to hate him.
  • Spanner in the Works: Ended up being this for everyone betting on the fight between Anak and Ran.
  • The Team:
    Hide-and-Seek Team B: Parakewl, Androssi, Baam, Michelle Light (Rachel), Hatsu, Ho, Serena, Shopin, Chunhwa, Des Lion, Mauchi, Levin, Full Black, and Grey.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Parakewl, Androssi, Baam, Anak, Leesoo, Koon, Rachel, Rak, Androssi, Laure, Hatsu, Aleksai, Blarouse, Chunhwa, Sunwoo, Levin, and Akryung.
    Rak's Season 2 Team: Parakewl and Rak.
  • Those Two Guys: With Mauchi in the first season.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Disappears in season 2 after the Workshop Battle.

    Levin 

Levin

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/levin.jpg
Tower Position: Light-Bearer

A Regular who uses a sniper rifle as his weapon. He is the only Light Bearer other than Rachel and Koon who passed the 2nd Floor.


  • Berserk Button: Levin tends to get angry quite easily if he doesn't understand what's going on, or when someone is screwing with him.
  • Boom, Headshot!: In his first scene, he eliminates another Regular this way.
  • Cold Sniper: Saved up a lot apparently to buy his gun, unfortunately for him it was destroyed during the Crown game.
  • Color Motif: The color green.
  • Fangs Are Evil: Not really evil, but he has his selfish moments.
  • Mission Control: As a light-bearer.
  • Idiot Ball: Telling Rak to go somewhere else during a deathmatch. Genius!
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Served as this for the first season where he hated Rak for taking his spot in the survival test, but ran away before Rak decided to fight him or not. He also tends to yell at people whenever things don't go to plan, such as being forced to watch Team-B's many betrayals from his lighthouse during Hide-and-Seek.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Lebin or Levin? Word of God has finally brought clarity to the subject: Levin.
  • The Team:
    Crown Game Team: Levin, Palgyon, and Catan.
    Hide-and-Seek Team B: Levin, Androssi, Baam, Michelle Light (Rachel), Hatsu, Ho, Serena, Shopin, Chunhwa, Des Lion, Mauchi, Parakewl, Full Black, and Grey.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Levin, Androssi, Baam, Anak, Leesoo, Koon, Rachel, Rak, Androssi, Laure, Hatsu, Aleksai, Blarouse, Chunhwa, Sunwoo, Parakewl, and Akryung.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Despite passing the 2nd Floor, Levin hasn't appeared since the Time Skip.
  • Worf Effect: Despite showing that he's a capable killer in the initial survival test, he gets taken captive by Parakewl and Mauchi during Hide-and-Seek.

    Hong Chunhwa 

Hong Chunhwa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chunhwa.jpg
Tower Position: Fisherman

A knight-like fisherman Regular who's always at Sunwoo Nare's side. He turns out to be a Regular in possession of a rare ignition sword.


  • Bishie Sparkle: Yes. A standout sparkle moment is when Narumada is returned to him after the Hide-and-Seek test.
  • The Chosen Many: As a part of the Hong family, it's strongly implied that his sword, Narumada, is one of seven sacred swords passed down from his ancestors.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Hardly stood a chance against Androssi during the Hide-and-Seek test.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Brown hair with brown eyes.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: The huge guy to Sunwoo's tiny girl.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Sunwoo Nare sees him as one due to his first outfit being an actual knight armor. He switches to normal clothes after the Crown Game.
  • Out of Focus: Despite being introduced as early as all the Regulars first arriving on Evankhell's floating fortress, he barely gets any focus until his fisherman fight against Androssi during Hide-and-Seek.
  • The Quiet One: Doesn't interact much with the other Regulars outside Sunwoo.
  • Shared Family Quirks: Hong Danhwa from the Hell Train chapters could easily make a case for Suspiciously Similar Substitute.
  • The Team:
    Crown Game Team: Chunhwa and Sunwoo.
    Hide-and-Seek Team B: Chunhwa, Levin, Androssi, Baam, Michelle Light (Rachel), Hatsu, Ho, Serena, Shopin, Des Lion, Mauchi, Parakewl, Full Black, and Grey.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Chunhwa, Levin, Androssi, Baam, Anak, Leesoo, Koon, Rachel, Rak, Androssi, Laure, Hatsu, Aleksai, Blarouse, Sunwoo, Parakewl, and Akryung.
  • Weapon of Choice: An ignition sword.
    • Beam Spam: Can charge up, and fire a blast of Shinsoo.
    • Cool Sword: Cool enough to be called Narumada.
    • Disc-One Nuke: The sword is considered uncommon for someone to have in the starting test Floors.
    • Plunder: Androssi takes Narumada for herself in order to battle Quant in the Hide-and-Seek test.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Yet another character who passed the 2nd Floor, but has yet to appear again. What's even weirder about this case is that Chunhwa was one of the Regulars that actually said to everyone that he will help Rachel climb the Tower due to his knight status, and yet he never appears again to show that he kept that promise.

    Sunwoo Nare 

Sunwoo Nare

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sunwoo_3839.png
Tower Position: Scout, Anima

A Scout Regular who turned out to also have the rare Anima Position. She swoons over Hong Chunhwa and is climbing the Tower for the money.


  • Advertised Extra: Sunwoo is actually the very first image that is seen in the preview chapter for the webtoon. However, her actual character in the series is no bigger than a side-character, and she doesn't even become a part of one of the teams that are in the spotlight for Season 2.
  • The Beastmaster: Her Anima Position, which allows Sunwoo to control certain animals of the Tower. To start, Sunwoo controlled a large group of fish that helped one of Koon's plans during the final 2nd Floor test.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Yellow hair with yellow eyes.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: The tiny girl to Hong's huge guy.
  • Only in It for the Money: The preview for TOG, and her behavior during Season One, implies that she desires the wealth the Tower may grant her.
  • Out of Focus: Similar to Chunhwa, Sunwoo is a Regular that is shown arriving at Evankhell's floating fortress with everyone else, but doesn't get any focus on her all the way until the final 2nd Floor test where her rare Anima Position proved to be useful for one of Koon's plans.
  • The Team:
    Crown Game Team: Sunwoo and Chunhwa.
    Hide-and-Seek Team A: Sunwoo, Leesoo, Koon, Anak, Hwa Ryun, Laure, Aleksai, Blarouse, Rozeal, Kancho, Goon, Erik, Leon 3, and First Emperor.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Sunwoo, Chunhwa, Levin, Androssi, Baam, Anak, Leesoo, Koon, Rachel, Rak, Androssi, Laure, Hatsu, Aleksai, Blarouse, Parakewl, and Akryung.
  • Token Mini-Moe: The smallest of the first season's Regulars.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Has yet to make a reappearance despite passing the 2nd Floor.

    Blarouse 

Blarouse

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/blarouse_3710.jpg
Tower Position: Fisherman

One of three Regulars who got drafted by Koon during the initial survival test. Along with Kukaku and Grey, the three of them hid within Koon's bag to skip through the first challenges, but were finally brought out after Yu Han Sung caught on to Koon's plan. In order to pay off their debt to Koon for getting them this far through the 2nd Floor, Blarouse, and his two teammates, participate in the Crown Game's fourth round, and fought as allies for Koon to dispose of the other two enemy teams. As one of the Regulars who made it to the final test of the 2nd Floor, he helps the group support Rachel. His means of combat is a glove to throw balls at his enemies, which then return to him.


  • Anime Hair: Shaved head with massive bangs...very odd style.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Along with Grey and Kukaku Rakukakuka, hints were given throughout the first tests of the 2nd Floor showing that they were hiding within Koon's bag. Due to Yu Han Sung noticing what Koon was doing, they were finally brought out of the bag to help Koon's team in the Crown Game.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Performed one with Kukaku and Grey on the two other teams opposing Koon's team in the Crown Game's fourth round.
  • Flat Character: Compared to every other character from Baam's group that passed the Floor of Tests, Blarouse was easily the least developed.
  • The Team:
    Crown Game Team: Blarouse, Grey, and Kukaku.
    Hide-and-Seek Team A: Blarouse, Sunwoo, Leesoo, Koon, Anak, Hwa Ryun, Laure, Aleksai, Rozeal, Kancho, Goon, Erik, Leon 3, and First Emperor.
    Submerged Fish Hunt Team: Blarouse, Sunwoo, Chunhwa, Levin, Androssi, Baam, Anak, Leesoo, Koon, Rachel, Rak, Androssi, Laure, Hatsu, Aleksai, Parakewl, and Akryung.
  • Tricked-Out Gloves: His main weapon.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Continuing the trend, Blarouse has yet to make a reappearance despite passing the 2nd Floor.

Other Floor of Test Regulars

    Ho 

Ho

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hotog_288.jpg
Tower Position: Wave Controller

A wave controller Regular whose desire is to climb the Tower in order to obtain the strength he didn't have when all his loved ones were slaughtered. He starts off as a seemingly ok guy, but begins to fall apart when he starts to realize that he Can't Catch Up to Baam.


  • Can't Catch Up: He's spent years mastering tricks that took Baam days to learn. His realization that this trope is in effect ultimately leads to his betrayal and suicide.
  • Character Death: He commits suicide during the Hide-and-Seek test.
  • Character Development: A dark transition. He starts off as a seemingly nice and ok guy, but falls apart completely when he realizes that he Can't Catch Up to Baam to the point of betraying Hide-and-Seek's Team-B and committing suicide.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Yellow hair and yellow eyes.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: All of his friends were killed by a random monstrous humanoid at his original home before being chosen to enter the Tower.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Brown skin with yellow hair.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Long hair, androgynous features.
  • Horned Humanoid: Has a single, red horn on the right side of his head.
  • Hostage Situation: Takes Rachel captive in order to make Baam feel the same misery that Ho suffered through by threatening to kill the person Baam holds most dear.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Ho becomes increasingly envious of Baam when he notices that the latter has been blessed with the talent of learning how to control shinsoo at such an amazingly fast rate compared to himself. He also hates the fact that God blessed him with cheap parlor tricks in return for destroying Ho's life outside the tower, and yet Baam appears to be perfectly fine despite God bestowing him such amazing talent.
  • Knife Nut: His Weapon of Choice.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Arguably, his betrayal and death marks the point when the series departed from being a classic shonen formula.
  • Mentor Archetype: Seeing that Baam hasn't begun using shinsoo yet, Ho shows off the basics that he's already learned to him when they're in the wave controller class for the Position Test. However, his good nature turns to resentment when Ho realizes that he Can't Catch Up to Baam.
  • Overly Nervous Flop Sweat: He really begins to fall apart during the Hostage Situation. Any panel he's in, he's always sweating.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Waist length.
  • The Team:
    Crown Game Team: Ho, Laure, and Serena.
    Hide-and-Seek Team B: Ho, Androssi, Baam, Michelle Light (Rachel), Hatsu, Serena, Shopin, Chunhwa, Des Lion, Mauchi, Parakewl, Levin, Full Black, and Grey.

    Mauchi 

Mauchi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/39ea0b936d3e2f84341bb9302b3a12a2.jpg
Tower Position: Spear-Bearer

A Regular that was assigned as a Spear Bearer. Mauchi mostly followed after Parakewl, but failed to pass the Hide-And-Seek test.


  • Curb-Stomp Battle: On the receiving end of one from Yu Han for complaining about failing the Hide-And-Seek test.
  • Dirty Coward: He takes after Parakewl, and abandons Hatsu during the Hide-And-Seek test.
  • Dumb Muscle: How dumb do you have to be to think Parakewl has all the right answers?
  • Sidekick: Basically Parakewl's partner-in-crime.
  • Satellite Character: A lot of his actions play off Parakewl.
  • The Team:
    Hide-and-Seek Team B: Mauchi, Ho, Androssi, Baam, Michelle Light (Rachel), Hatsu, Serena, Shopin, Chunhwa, Des Lion, Parakewl, Levin, Full Black, and Grey.
  • This Cannot Be!: Didn't take his failure to pass Hide-And-Seek very well.
  • Those Two Guys: With Parakewl in the first season.
  • Weapon of Choice: A large red spear. He is a Spear Bearer after all.
  • You Have Failed Me: Parakewl ditches him for failing to pass Hide-And-Seek.

    Serena Rinnen 

Serena Rinnen

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3d4c63a01642926b9fdb703e1dc19a6a.jpg
Tower Position: Scout

A Regular that was assigned as a Scout. Despite making it far through the 2nd Floor, she fails to pass the Hide-And-Seek test.


  • Berserk Button: Whenever Leesoo refers to her as an old hag. She's also somewhat of a Butt-Monkey amongst the Regulars, which always tends to piss her off.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Her climb fails, but she gains a more possitive view on life which is likely to take her further outside the Inner or Middle Tower sections than within them. Very much the inverse of a Pyrrhic Victory — she has a better chance to live a full life with a lot less maiming by not climbing because she lost.
  • Break the Badass: By the end of the Hide-And-Seek test, it becomes clear that her Dark and Troubled Past catches up to her, and she can't handle the idea of killing others as she moves up the Tower; Ho's death being the tipping point where she finally decides to call it quits.
  • Character Development: By the end of the Hide-And-Seek test, she resolves to take life more seriously.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She watched her thief partner get slaughtered by a Ranker before entering the Tower.
  • Fragile Speedster: Defined specifically as a thief.
  • Kick the Dog: Before both of them make it through, she tries to do this to Leesoo; making fun of him for not being able to pass through Lero-Ro's shinsoo wall, but ends up not being able to do it herself.
  • Knife Nut: Her Weapon of Choice.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Quite rare for the series, but it's there for Serena.
  • Odd Friendship: Develops an odd one of sorts with Leesoo as a fellow ordinary Regular trying to make it through the Floor of Tests.
  • Ship Tease: With Leesoo in the first season to the point that she showed up at Leesoo's room wanting to share a drink with him.
  • Smurfette Principle: The woman of Laure, and Ho's, group during the Crown Game.
  • The Team:
    Crown Game Team: Serena, Ho, and Laure.
    Hide-and-Seek Team B: Serena, Ho, Androssi, Baam, Michelle Light (Rachel), Hatsu, Shopin, Chunhwa, Des Lion, Mauchi, Parakewl, Levin, Full Black, and Grey.
  • The Worf Effect: How Parakewl and Mauchi were able to capture her during the Hide-And-Seek test is anyone's guess. Most likely cause being that she was completely out of it beginning to feel regret about wanting to hurt others to go up the Tower.

    Des Lion 

Des Lion

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1efc2319cd4333adc3c31692f014fc36.jpg
Tower Position: Fisherman

A fisherman Regular who enjoys sucking up to Princess Androssi. Due to the injuries he suffered in Hide-And-Seek, Des was unable to heal himself in-time for the final test.


  • Casanova Wannabe: Attempts to flirt with Androssi to no avail. Doesn't help that he tried to butt in while she was talking with Baam.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Like Hong, he wasn't able to put up much of a fight against Androssi.
  • Dirty Coward: Tried to screw Hong over in an attempt to run away from Androssi, and pulls this stunt again on Baam despite the latter trying to protect Des from Androssi's onslaught.
  • Game-Breaking Injury: Couldn't heal his Hide-And-Seek injuries in time for the final 2nd Floor test. He failed the 2nd Floor altogether because of it.
  • Hostage Situation: Attempted this by taking Baam captive. Androssi wasn't phased in the least.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Androssi does a number on him.
  • Satellite Character: If you hadn't guessed by how some of his tropes are worded, Des' role in the story was basically to show off how brutal Androssi can be.
  • The Team:
    Hide-and-Seek Team B: Des Lion, Serena, Ho, Androssi, Baam, Michelle Light (Rachel), Hatsu, Shopin, Chunhwa, Mauchi, Parakewl, Levin, Full Black, and Grey.
  • Undying Loyalty: He starts off worshiping the very ground that Androssi stands on due to her Zahard Princess status, but ends up coming back to reality when Androssi chooses to eliminate the other fishermen Regulars of Team-B.
  • Weapon of Choice: A long black spear.

    Full Black 

Full Black

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fullblack.jpg
Tower Position: Light-Bearer

A light-bearer Regular who made it as far as the Hide-and-Seek test, but wasn't able to pass.


  • Chekhov's Gunman: Full caught on to Ho acting weird the night before the Hide-and-Seek test, which he told Koon about. This would lead to Koon investigating Ho's room, and finding the memo that ordered for Ho to make Baam fail the Floor of Tests.
  • Every Man Has His Price: Koon bribed him with a piece of rare float-rock for information on Ho.
  • Flat Character: There isn't much to Full apart from his light-bearer connection to Koon.
  • Mission Control: As a light-bearer, he provided information and such for Hide-and-Seek's Team-B.
  • Satellite Character: Full existed primarily as a part of Koon's investigation into Ho. The character is even introduced the moment Ho received the memo.
  • Scars Are Forever: Has a scar down the left side of his face.
  • The Team:
    Hide-and-Seek Team B: Full Black, Des Lion, Serena, Ho, Androssi, Baam, Michelle Light (Rachel), Hatsu, Shopin, Chunhwa, Mauchi, Parakewl, Levin, and Grey.

    Team Kancho 

Dede Kancho, Kon and Shopin

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/teamkancho_4.jpg
Tower Position: Fisherman (Kancho and Kon)
Tower Position: Scout (Mr. Shopin)

A 3-man-team that consisted of Dede Kancho (black hair), Kon (brown hair) and Mr. Shopin (blonde hair). Kon was the first to fail during the fisherman class training for the Position Test while Kancho and Shopin made it as far as the Hide-and-Seek test before both ultimately failed the 2nd Floor.


  • The Big Guy: Shopin is seen as such for the team.
  • Blade on a Stick: Kancho fights with a spear.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle:
    • Anak delivers the team quite a brutal one during the first round of the Crown Game.
    • Quant deals with Kancho very easily during Hide-and-Seek.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Their team is actually one of the groups given the spotlight showing how they passed Yu Han Sung's door test.
  • Dual Wielding: Kon duel-wields swords.
  • Horned Humanoid: Kancho has a red horn shooting off the back of his head.
  • The Leader: Kancho is usually seen as the one giving the orders in the team.
  • Flat Character: Kon went out much earlier than his two teammates, and had far less screen-time.
  • Out of Focus: Despite Shopin being a part of Hide-and-Seek's Team-B, nothing was ever done with him apart from being one of the Regulars that was taken hostage by Parakewl and Mauchi.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Shopin's eyes turn red once he becomes possessed by the "HoHohHo HoHohHohHo" god.

    Crown Game Team: First Emperor, Leo, and Deod.
    Hide-and-Seek Team A: First Emperor, Kancho, Anak, Leesoo, Koon, Hwa Ryun, Laure, Aleksai, Blarouse, Sunwoo, Rozeal, Goon, Erik, and Leon 3.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aleksaisteammates.jpg
Tower Position: Light-Bearer (Chungchung and Leon)

The two other teammates of Aleksai's 3-man-team. Chungchung (left) failed to pass the light-bearer class training for the Position Test while Leon 3 (right) failed after Hide-and-Seek.


  • Berserk Button: Koon's provocation in the third round manages to piss Chungchung off.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: Chungchung eye sockets are completely black. While Chungchung isn't much of an evil person, her action to try to scheme behind the team-up against Koon in the Crown Game's third round was still a pretty Jerkass thing to do.
  • Color Motif: Red for Chungchung.
  • Hair Decorations: Chungchung has a red bow in her hair.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Leon fights with a giant bat.
  • Fragile Speedster: Chungchung's way of fighting is that she's a fast little critter.

  • Nice Hat: Leon wears a red cap.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: Chungchung can be seen as such for Aleksai since she's a tiny, animal-like, Regular that's always seen hanging out on Aleksai's shoulder.
  • Petting Zoo People: Chungchung's design is based off a squirrel.
  • The Quiet One: Leon hardly said a word before Hide-and-Seek, but began to speak in said test when he was needed to provide Mission Control.

  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Leon has red eyes.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Hard to believe, but Chungchung was confirmed to be a woman, and the only one of the team.
  • The Team:
    Crown Game Team: Chungchung, Leon 3, and Aleksai.
    Hide-and-Seek Team A: Leon 3, Kancho, Anak, Leesoo, Koon, Hwa Ryun, Laure, Aleksai, Blarouse, Sunwoo, Rozeal, Goon, Erik, First Emperor.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/blarousesteammates.jpg
Tower Position: Wave Controller (Grey)
Tower Position: Light-Bearer (Kukaku)

The two other teammates of Blarouse's 3-man-team. Grey and Kukaku Rakukakuka were the other Regulars alongside Blarouse that Koon recruited in the 2nd Floor's starting survival test, and hid away in the latter's bag until they're brought out moments before the Crown Game. Kukaku (right) never got to move on to the Position Test while Grey (left) failed to pass Hide-and-Seek.


  • Alliterative Name: Kukaku Rakukakuka.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Similar to Blarouse, hints were given throughout the first tests of the 2nd Floor showing that they were hiding within Koon's bag. Due to Yu Han Sung noticing what Koon was doing, they were finally brought out of the bag to help Koon's team in the Crown Game.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Apart from a few cameos, Kukaku pretty much disappears after the Crown Game to the point that he doesn't even take part in the training class for the Position Test. Implying that he somehow failed before the Position Test even started.
  • Creepy Child: Something about Grey just seems...off. Especially the way she forces a Regular to her knees in the Crown Game.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Along with Blarouse, the three of them performed this against the two other teams that showed up in the Crown Game's fourth round to fight Koon's team.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Grey is pale-skinned with black hair.
  • Flat Character: Neither really got to show anything character-wise.
  • Out of Focus: Despite being one of the wave controllers for Hide-and-Seek's Team-B, Grey never appears on-screen during the test.
  • Rubber Man: Kukaku's way of fighting seems to be a way of extending his arms at his enemies.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Grey is the only female of the team.
  • Token Nonhuman: Kukaku is a prawn-like humanoid.
  • The Team:
    Crown Game Team: Grey, Kukaku, and Blarouse
    Hide-and-Seek Team B: Grey, Shopin, Des Lion, Serena, Ho, Androssi, Baam, Michelle Light (Rachel), Hatsu, Chunhwa, Mauchi, Parakewl, Levin, and Full Black.

Goon and Yung Changsoo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hwaryunsteammates.jpg
Tower Position: Spear-Bearer (Goon)
Tower Position: Fisherman (Yung)

The two other teammates of Hwa Ryun's 3-man-team. Yung (left) failed to pass the fisherman training class for the Position Test while Goon (right) didn't make it beyond Hide-and-Seek.


  • Ambiguously Brown: An odd orange-brown skin mix for Goon.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Yung was one of the Regulars that was easily disposed of during the fisherman class when Androssi and Anak were having their duel.
  • Dual Wielding: Yung duel-wields swords.
  • Flat Character: Honestly, the only reason these two characters existed was so that Hwa Ryun had enough teammates in the Crown Game.
  • Out of Focus: Goon made it to the Hide-and-Seek test, but never got a moment in the spotlight.
  • Smug Snake: Yung acted like one towards Koon to keep the latter from reaching Hwa Ryun during the fifth round of the Crown Game.
  • The Team:
    Crown Game Team: Goon, Yung, and Hwa Ryun (Mask).
    Hide-and-Seek Team A: Goon, Kancho, Anak, Leesoo, Koon, Hwa Ryun, Laure, Aleksai, Blarouse, Sunwoo, Rozeal, Erik, Leon 3, First Emperor.
