Securing | Round 4

"There is no easy choice."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • The Dragonslayer: Though Adelina admits that she's only done it once and it was a tough job, Cabanela is still more than impressed.
  • Humble Hero: She often downplays her exploits and finds it hard to take praise for the things she does to help the other Participants.
  • In-Series Nickname: Averted. She goes by Addie in canon, but other Participants, her profile, and the narration all call her Adelina.
  • Spock Speak: Adelina always uses formal syntax and speaks in a calm, precise demeanour.
  • Survivor Guilt: She admits that she feels guilty for not stopping all the death.


Submerged | Round 5

"I can— I can take care of myself. I wouldn't wanna put... that on you."

One of the victims of Week 8 (Case 8).

  • All Girls Like Ponies: Mentions that she always wanted one as a child.
  • Dreadful Musician: Calls herself "instrument repellent" because of it.
  • Only One Name: She had multiple hidden last names in Round 5, but this round doesn't list any. She herself is incredulous at the profile and believes they were too lazy to list it.
  • Outdoorsy Gal: Describes herself as a woodsy type who likes things like climbing.
  • Sarcasm Mode: Alex slips into this sometimes when things are too hard to take normally.
    "Oh! Naturally! Of course there might be a severed arm!"
  • Walking Spoiler: Her inclusion despite not being a previous PC spoils that she was Round 5's Transmitter.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Subverted, as hers is actually dyed and it's naturally brown.


Amorous | Round 3

"You're all a bunch of stupid dumb-dumb meanieheads!"

The culprit of Week 7 (Case 7).

  • Big, Stupid Doodoo-Head: These are still her favourite insults.
  • Brutal Honesty: Aligula is insultingly honest to everyone and actually considers it a Charm Point.
  • Cyclops: She has one eye and can somehow see even when it's closed.
  • Evil Is Visceral: How do you upstage Kotomine Kirei? Dismember well-loved Participants and run a scavenger hunt for their body parts, trailing blood all over the school!
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She gets very jealous and possessive when she hears that Elda might have considered taking the bring-a-friend incentive to save Susan, whom Aligula considered boring and disposable enough to kill for said incentive. Her player says that this fuels much of her relationship(?) with Elda, rather than actual romantic love.
  • In-Series Nickname: Tries to get people to call her Ali rather than any uncute nickname they might come up with.
  • Insistent Appellation: Like she did in Round 3, she always calls people by their titles until she gets close to them, even when they remind her that they have names.
  • Like Is, Like, a Comma: Aligula talks like a teenager, complete with this.
  • The Nicknamer: If there's someone she finds interesting enough to stop using their title, she'll give them a silly nickname.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Even — actually, especially — when everyone else is upset, she's always cheery.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Aligula has pink hair and is very, very girly.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: She sure thinks she is. The reality... not so much.
  • Shipper on Deck: Aligula squeals about Archer's imagined love life and takes all the credit for setting up Alex and Sayaka.
  • Urban Legend Love Life: Despite her constant chatter about her boyfriend(s) and endless stream of dirty jokes, her Dark Secret is that she's a virgin.


Edifying | Round 3

"People have always told me I'm a fast learner."

One of the victims of Week 7 (Case 7).

  • Cyborg: Due to being made to work as a Wetware CPU. Sayaka initially thinks she's one of those "automail enthusiasts" Kimblee told her about.
  • Freaky Fashion, Mild Mind: How some, like Sayaka, see her in light of her hairstyle and mechanical enhancements.
  • Ill Girl: Knowing how messed-up her real backstory is, Angel softens it by telling people she's just been bedridden for a while.
  • Nothing but Skin and Bones: Understandable, since she's subsisted on liquid nutrients for years.
  • Sense Freak: Being, well, not free, but in a less restrictive form of captivity than before inspires Angel to try all kinds of things she's never gotten to do, including testing out weird taste combinations (she does admit that putting chocolate sauce on salami was a mistake) and trying to see what all the instruments sound like.


Evolutionary | Round 1

"If there's no hope in resisting, then there's no point in playing nice."

The culprit of Week 2 (Case 2).

  • Born Unlucky: Blue says her luck is "pretty bad," since she has a Dark and Troubled Past and things always keep cropping up to keep her from securing a happy ending for herself.
  • The Cynic: Quickly picks up on how the game is going to go and cheerfully predicts after the second murder that there won't be long until the next one.
  • Older Than They Look: This round's Blue is 20, and even 17-year-old R1 Blue looked pretty young for her age, so it's underlined here.
  • Say It with Hearts: Often has heart symbols in her dialogue, especially when she's trying to pull one over on someone.
  • Sore Loser: Petulantly votes for her own victim, who did nothing wrong, at her trial rather than face that her paranoia was wrong and she killed Chitoge for no good reason. Aligula calls her out on it.
  • Stepford Smiler: Blue projects unapologetic, confident smiles even when she's terrified.


Ardent | Round 1

"We don't have many opportunities here to calm our minds."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • For Great Justice: His motivation for most things, including voting to let the world be in order to stop any more death games from ever happening again.


Aqueous | Round 2

"It's all about the greater good. But what's the greater good?"

The culprit of Week 1 (Case 1).

  • Ambiguous Syntax: She tells people that her home is somewhere in the Antarctic Ocean. This is more literal than she intends it to be taken.
  • Fallen Princess: Was one in the past, but due to her later canon point, Caren's been rebuilding her country. She explains to Katniss, who barely survives in the Dystopia she's from, that they're similar that way.
  • My Nayme Is: Caren spells her name with a C, yet puts it in hiragana. Notable as in this round, she's mistaken for another Caren, also spelled with a C.
  • Only One Name: Estelle asks what her last name is when she hears about another Caren and wonders if they're the same. Caren replies that she never gave herself one, although others of her kind have if they've needed to deal with humans enough.
  • Our Mermaids Are Different: Caren transforms into a mermaid with the submerging method, the pearl she keeps on her is her Soul Jar, and she's a Magical Girl with Magic Music.
  • Shipper on Deck: She may still be wary of finding love for herself, but she lives vicariously through encouraging other couples. Elda gets defensive when Caren looks shocked that Rin already has a boyfriend, but it turns out that Caren was actually worried about Hibiki, knowing that Hibiki has feelings for Rin.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Caren's starting canon point is her Round 2 final canon point. Thanks to this, she's a lot nicer, more trusting, and much more willing to let people play around with silly games in the face of danger and even participate herself.

Chie Hori

Informative | Round 1

"I've had a few close encounters with death — I'm good at surviving."

One of the victims of Week 5 (Case 5).

  • Camera Fiend: When she gets her hands on a camera, Chie takes pictures of everything.
  • City Mouse: Chie freely admits that she's this and thinks that a rural life sounds really dull.

Chitoge Kirisaki

Dexterous | Round 3

"I hate being indebted to someone."

The victim of Week 2 (Case 2).

  • Deadpan Snarker: Even if she's friendly and happy a lot of the time, Chitoge tends to be very sarcastic about their situation.
  • Dreadful Musician: She admits it, too, even when Sayaka's trying to encourage her. Chitoge has good energy but no talent.
  • Femininity Failure: Admits that she's bad at "homely stuff," though she'd rather not.
  • Older and Wiser: Or at least somewhat less likely to make destructive decisions. She thinks to herself that she could easily have been killed for trying to hurt their captor a few years ago, which her R3 counterpart actually was.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: She blames it on being from New York.

Elda Marker

Indomitable | Round 4

"To me, family is always, always the most important thing."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Darkest Hour: Elda gives in to despair for a moment at Sayaka's death and nearly turns on the group.
  • Dirty Old Man: Old woman, but still talks about perverted things openly.
  • Emotion Eater: She explains that this is half of what she gets out of drinking blood.
  • Fantastic Racism: Elda's as bad as she was in Round 4 with hating humans. Though treating Sayaka as an exception sometimes, far too human other times, eventually gets her to come around.
  • Femme Fatalons: Often threatens people with her long, sharp nails.
  • Hellish Pupils: Her eyes are catlike with slits, especially when she's trying to intimidate someone.
  • Love-Obstructing Parents: Despite the fact that she's an example of both this and Obnoxious In-Laws in canon, the closest she gets here is lightly trolling Alex before she invokes this trope, wondering what will happen "if (she's) to be cast as the disapproving mother." Elda tries to get to know Alex after that, but still refers to her as "that brat (Sayaka is) dating."
  • Significant Wardrobe Shift: Late in the game, her growing hopelessness leads her to start dressing in Elegant Gothic Lolita clothes.
  • The Unfettered: Admits after the eighth trial that the reason she went after the culprit recklessly and ruthlessly and then basically declared war on the Coordinators was that she no longer had any reason to fall in line thanks to who one of the victims was.

Estellise Sidos Heurassein

Noble | Round 4

"A story of death and hopelessness that turns into a story of hope and rebirth. It would be a wonderful tale."

The victim of Week 6 (Case 6).

  • All-Loving Hero: Estelle has a high opinion of everyone, even those who openly hate her. When Luca tries to get her to pick her three favourite people, she can't do it even if she tries.
  • Animals Hate Him: At least at home, animals always spurn her affection, likely because she's killing her world by existing.
  • Bookworm: Loves to read and even annoys Alena their first week by asking for books. She also wants to be a writer.
  • Literal-Minded: She's... still getting used to common expressions.
  • Outgrown Such Silly Superstitions: Estelle's view of her own society, so much so that she has trouble fathoming the concept of people holding religious beliefs at all.
  • Poisonous Person: Her secret is that she's killing her world by existing.
  • Pink Means Feminine: A pink-haired, loving, girly princess.
  • Princess Classic: Estelle is sweet, sheltered, and wants to save the world.

Fern Green

Nurturing | Round 3

"I'm barely figuring out this place, I don't know if I'm ready for otherworldly diseases."

One of the victims (and culprits) of Week 3 (Case 3).

  • Achievements in Ignorance: In the ending log, Fern concludes that Celia was able to pilot her body because Fern's mind was convinced that she was dead, even if she was really alive. She decides to convince herself that it's possible again so that Aligula can talk to Celia.
  • Ambiguously Human: Her green nature causes at least a few people to wonder if she's a germ or an alien. She insists that she's human, but admits she isn't entirely sure how human anymore.
  • Bizarre Human Biology: She mentions dying multiple times and no one (including her) is quite certain why she's green. Oh, and her bacteria gained sentience.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: Not Fern herself, but all of her bacteria (sans Celia) see nothing wrong with ending their lives, as it's the "natural" end to a bacteria. The Fernslob itself only cares about feeding their hunger.
  • Diseased Name: Her name references her odd condition, but the real examples are her bacteria, named after infections.
  • Fantastic Racism: Realizes at the end of the first trial that she has some issues, considering non-humans "monsters."
  • Horror Hunger: When she's taken over as a Parasite Zombie. What used to be Fern even goes One-Winged Angel at her execution.
  • Inappropriate Role Model: Thinks she's this when Rin finds her drunk. Fern worries that Rin will start going into underage drinking herself because of it.
  • Large Ham: Celia is considerably more over-the-top than Fern, but is heavily implied to be playing it up to cover her insecurities.
  • Only Sane Man: Is pretty much defined by being the Unfazed Everyman that weird things revolve around.
  • Puppeteer Parasite: How Celia operates, pretending to be Fern for a number of hours.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: She's particularly sweet and helpful to the younger kids. As is Dr. Staph, compared to Celia.
  • Screw Yourself: Celia has a thing for her, and as one of the bacteria in Fern's body, she was technically part of Fern (and could still be considered that despite having come to life).
  • Selective Obliviousness: She can't see her green skin and tends to get riled up when people mention it. She later admits to Aligula that she can't see or remember what she actually looks like either.
  • Stealth Pun: It took until this round to find out, but "Nurturing" doesn't just mean Team Mom, it also means that she's "nurturing" a colony of sapient bacteria.
  • Team Mom: Automatically acts like a parent towards the younger Participants.
  • Tragic Monster: The end result of Celia's bacteria empire is a mindless husk of Fern that attacks anyone for food. Celia herself goes to extreme lengths to hold off the infection, protecting Fern's body and her people... for a while.
  • Walking Spoiler: The Reveal of exactly how bad her canon experiences was provides a lot of new information about Fern and her bacteria.

Frank Archer

Ambitious | Round 2

"If I spent all my time on philosophy, I'd never get anything done."

One of the victims of Week 5 (Case 5).

  • Badass Normal: Archer has no talent for alchemy, despite having worked hard to try it, but decided to go into the army and succeed "on (his) own merits."
  • Companion Cube: He treats his Roomba like a pet when no one's looking.
  • Last-Name Basis: He's flat-out uncomfortable with being called Frank by anyone.
  • Loners Are Freaks: Archer is bad with people and finds it bizarre that he actually enjoys the company of some of the other Participants. He's also obsessed with war and destruction, so there's that.
  • Manly Gay: While the strict military man won't say he was in love with the Kimbley of his world, Sigrun, Aligula, and even Jericho take it as an obvious fact.
  • Walking Spoiler: His inclusion despite not being a previous PC spoils that he was Round 2's deadland NPC.

Hibiki Ganaha

Vivacious | Round 1

"Music's kinda amazin' like that, isn't it?"

Killed for the timer during Week 8.

  • Idol Singer: From a more idealistic version of the profession than Sayaka's cynical (and more realistic) career.
  • Nature Hero: Hibiki is very connected to nature and animals, enough that her ineffectual attempts to stop the murder and her fragile mental state both link to a bad case of Cabin Fever.
  • Not Good with People: Her secret is that she prefers animals to people because she doesn't know how to get along with a human or understand them.
  • Outdoorsy Gal: Hibiki is frustrated more than most with the idea of being cooped up, claims to be able to sense if they're near the ocean, and misses going out exploring, which she did all the time.

Jean Kirstein

Ascendant | Round 1

"Everyone has a reason to be paranoid, right?"

The victim of Week 1 (Case 1).

  • Properly Paranoid: He's wary around those he knows or suspects to be nonhuman, which causes problems, but just look at all the nonhuman culprit reveals in Trustfell's history and how they used their strange attributes to kill.
  • Someone Has to Do It: Jean tells Rin this is why he became a soldier.

Katniss Everdeen

Resolute | Round 3

"Parties are a waste of time."

Punished during Week 5.

  • Grumpy Bear: Katniss is the resident cynical, fun-hating killjoy, which makes sense given her backstory.
  • Hypocrite: It's pointed out that, while she says Rideaux's name is stupid, her canon is full of stupid names and her own name is a plant.
  • The Reliable One: She's responsible and takes care of herself and others, noting who can and can't do things.

Kirei Kotomine

Inquisitive | Round 4

"Even an existence spent stained in blood can be beautiful in its own way."

The culprit of Week 6 (Case 6).

  • Consummate Liar: Lying by omission is one of Kirei's favourite tactics, and it's described as being as easy as breathing.
  • Ironic Name: All he finds "beautiful" is suffering.
  • Sinister Minister: Elda at first hates him because he's a priest. Most of the others end up hating him because he's an evil one.
  • Walking Spoiler: His inclusion despite not being a previous PC spoils that he was Round 4's Wordsmith.

Kyrie Ushiromiya

Pragmatic | Round 4

"It's not in my nature to concede defeat, even in a match I'd lose."

The culprit of Week 8 (Case 8).

  • Badass Longcoat: She keeps a stock of weapons hidden in it!
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Always acts polite and personable, but the players and readers — at least the ones who saw Round 4 — know better. By her death, she Took a Level in Kindness then immediately sacrificed the points.
  • Lack of Empathy: She finds it hard to feel for other people. For example, when the idea of raising the dead comes up, Kyrie's first thought is that the revived dead wouldn't be useful to have around.
  • Mafia Princess: Implies she was one as a child, and growing up in the yakuza would certainly explain some of her views on life.
  • The Resenter: Kyrie is this towards her stepson for being a reminder of her husband's first wife. Doubles as irony in Week 5, where she learns that said child was Switched at Birth and is her own biological child, whom she thought was dead.
  • Screw Destiny: She says her approach to fate is to leave it be when things are going her way and defy it when they're not.

Luca Valentino

Inconspicuous | Round 3

"I think you already know that this will never be over, not if things continue as they are now."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Animals Hate Him: It's mutual, but Luca confesses that animals do tend to avoid him.
  • I Owe You My Life: When Elda and Yuri save his life after Kyrie shoots him, Luca decides that he owes them immense loyalty for it.

Mikoto Suoh

Reserved | Round 5

"This is a waste of time."

One of the culprits of Week 5 (Case 5).

  • Apathy Killed the Cat: He says he's uninterested in anything that has to do with being trapped in Graceside... including questioning any of it or investigating how to get out of it.

Milla Maxwell

Peerless | Round 4

"It might be nice if more of us knew this feeling."

One of the victims of Week 7 (Case 7).

  • Alliterative Name: Two M's.
  • The Ditz: While she acts very proper, Milla knows basically nothing about normal people and day-to-day life. Elda calls her an "airheaded god."
  • God in Human Form: Believed she was one, though if you read Round 4, you'll already know otherwise.
  • Multicoloured Hair: She's still got three or four different colours in there.
  • Nerves of Steel: Milla never seems to be bothered by anything, up to and including threats of murder.

Orihime Inoue

Harmonious | Round 4

"So, this is like one of those mystery shows where we have to capture the bad guys, isn't it?"

Punished during Week 6.

  • Bizarre Taste in Food: Orihime recommends adding strawberry jam to crab soup and cinnamon to lunch meat, among other things. Weird food combinations are a hobby of hers.
  • The Ditz: Extremely. She'll believe anything and follows weird tangents.

Rideaux Zek Rugievit

Evaluating | Round 3

"I was willing to eliminate people who impeded our progress. Nothing personal to them, of course."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • The Coroner: Shares this role with Susan. This time, he's not the one who dies and leaves the others without someone to examine the bodies!
  • In Touch with His Feminine Side: Tabby calls him "Mr. Metrosexual" for his long hair and makeup.
  • Lean and Mean: Rideaux is thin and angular (which Aligula publicly mocks him for), and he's a self-absorbed jerk.
  • Narcissist: Described as loving to hear himself talk.
  • Rummage Sale Reject: He calls his bright striped suit and boa avant-garde. Few agree.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: He runs on with long sentences and big words just because he can.
  • Token Evil Teammate: The only survivor who turns up on Lisbeth's hit list of villains.
  • Unfortunate Names: Even he doesn't know it means "curtains." Tabby suspects it actually means something dirty.

Rin Tohsaka

Courageous | Round 5

"What Would Kirei Do isn't a phrase I like to reflect on more than I have to."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Girlish Pigtails: Hence Terumi calling her "Pigtails."
  • Pragmatic Hero: Though everyone's forced to be this in the setting, Rin stands out for consistently choosing what's best for the world over what's "right." That nearly makes her choose to reset at the end, but it's finally why she doesn't, as she agrees with Tarrlok's argument that the calamity could occur once again if the industry is allowed to continue as it has.

Sayaka Maizono

Attentive | Round 3

"...I just want to pretend everything's... gonna be fine for just a little while longer."

One of the victims of Week 8 (Case 8).

  • Apologizes a Lot: Which other characters conclude is because idols always have to apologize for wrongdoing that either wasn't theirs (like their label mistreating their fans) or wasn't wrong (like breaking the love ban).
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: Rin makes her realize that this, rather than fun or protection, is why Sayaka seeks out new things to learn in Graceside that she never would have had the chance to with her label puppeting her around.
  • Idol Singer: Sayaka's backstory shows the dark side of the dreamy industry, like how her every action was dictated by her publicists and she's sabotaged rivals' careers to avoid being discarded by her label.
  • I Hate Past Me: As she gains more of her memories, Sayaka rejects her past self's decisions and wishes she'd known then that her failed attempt at self-preservation shouldn't have been more important than others' lives.
  • I Just Want to Be Free: As time goes on, Sayaka is finally able to admit to herself that the life of an Idol Singer, micromanaged and fraught with unfair rules, was holding her captive until it could use her up and throw her away.
  • Important Haircut: Gets one at the start of Week 6, to try and symbolize becoming a new person.
  • It Was a Gift: Kimblee gives her the Philosopher's Stones that served as a Mineral MacGuffin in the end of his own round. Of course, him being what he is and these being what they are, there's a disturbing layer or two to this, but she resolves to take care of them anyway.
  • Morality Pet: To Elda, even if she keeps disgusting Elda by being human. Also in part to Kimblee, not that it makes him any less evil.
  • Shed the Family Name: Sayaka ends up deciding that she never wants to return to what's left of her old life and discards the image of the "Maizono Sayaka" who made so many people suffer to stay on top. Elda calls her "Sayaka Marker" in the end.
  • The Social Expert: Always checking in on people and seeing what they'll do, paying attention to every detail, to get them on her side.

Sigrun Eide

Boundless | Round 2

"Haven't lost yet, don't think I ever will."

The victim of Week 4 (Case 4).

  • Artifact Title: A character version with her game title. "Boundless" fit the R2 Sigrun who still felt she was invincible better than R6 Sigrun, who's from a later canon point and knows full well that she makes mistakes.
  • Buffy Speak: Sigrun still makes up words for unfamiliar concepts like this.
  • Dented Iron: Unlike her Round 2 counterpart, who was in perfect health, this Sigrun comes in with a bad injury still healing on her arm.
  • Does Not Like Spam: She mentions that she's not a fan of mandarin oranges.
  • Had to Be Sharp: Her home and occupation are dangerous enough that she's had to be very strong and, while Book Dumb, good at problem-solving.
  • Hunter of Monsters: Trolls, specifically, which in her world are mutated humans.
  • Military Brat: Sigrun comes from a military family.
  • Older and Wiser: More subdued than her Round 2 counterpart due to things she's gone through at her later canon point.
  • One of the Guys: At least this time she isn't barging into the men's sauna, but she happily goes drinking, telling war stories, and chasing ill-advised adventures with the guys, and she goes off with Kimblee and Archer in the end to do just that.
  • Robosexual: Round 2 Sigrun's relationship with Mettaton is brought up in Round 6. This Sigrun also develops something of a crush on Rachel when the latter is pretending to be Alena. Looks like she's drawn to Glory no matter what name she uses.
  • Understatement: Prone to these. Her reaction to being told that Kimblee killed her and how he did it is comparable to hearing that someone cut in line.

Solf J. Kimblee

Observant | Round 1

"My whole life has been spent on one battlefield or another; one can't take death as a mistress and expect her to never claim you in the end."

The culprit of Week 4 (Case 4).

  • Force and Finesse: With himself, given that, while Archer's Kimbley isn't here, he's often brought up and contrasted with their differing chemical knowledge and approach to people.
  • Heroic Ambidexterity: No one would call him heroic, but there's an important reveal where he can use both hands flawlessly.
  • Loves the Sound of Screaming: He'll even admit it if you're as messed up as he is.
  • Mask of Sanity: Cracks at executions and punishments, where he's too busy revelling in awe at the Coordinators' power to act like a normal, reasonable person. It falls off completely in the fourth trial, impressing Kirei (as everyone else starts to think they have something going on).
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Displays of immense power, especially violent and disturbing ones, really excite him.
  • Photographic Memory: Kimblee is described as having perfect recall. Jericho mocks how even someone like that could fall victim to the game's Laser-Guided Amnesia element.
  • Self-Made Man: He says that every State Alchemist was either a Child Prodigy or, like him, rose up to their position with nothing but hard work.
  • The Teetotaler: Because he likes having his wits about him, so he says, Kimblee doesn't drink. This becomes important when he kills Sigrun in the bar.
  • Walking Spoiler: His inclusion despite not being a previous PC spoils that he was Round 1's Conductor.

Susan Ashworth

Adroit | Round 1

"Are we really the same people if chunks of our experiences are just gone?"

One of the victims of Week 7 (Case 7).

  • Comfort Food: Pancakes. Susan says a friend used to make them a lot.
  • The Coroner: Shares this role with Rideaux.
  • Knight in Sour Armour: Snarky and cynical, as always, but Susan still does what she can to protect the more vulnerable Participants.

Tabitha "Tabby" Smith

Dynamic | Round 1

"Family's what you make of it, not who you share blood with."

Killed for the timer during Week 4.


Assured | Round 2

"...Do you think it's really possible for people to change for the better?"

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • The Atoner: He realizes all his mistakes from canon over time and resolves to make up for them.
  • Corrupt Politician: Tarrlok was this in canon and comes to regret it, even if he retains the skills to solve and survive trials. When Lisbeth comments at the final vote that he's "such a politician," he feels ashamed but figures that it's still necessary.
  • The Dandy: Always tries to "look fancy" and come off as impressive.

Walter White

Methodical | Round 3

"Whatever pointless exercise you want to try, be my guest."

One of the victims (and culprits) of Week 3 (Case 3).

Weiss Schnee

Crystalline | Round 1

"We can't just stand around and wait for something to happen."

Punished during Week 5.

  • Fallen Princess: Her canon point here is Season 4, where her family blames her for the Fall of Beacon and puts her under house arrest.
  • Heroic BSoD: Has one at the end of the second trial in fear that Alena and Jericho can copy her ability too. To be fair, alchemy circles from Fullmetal Alchemist do look a lot like her Semblance.

Yosuke Hanamura

Meteoric | Round 2

"What can I say, I'm a bright, sunny guy."

Punished during Week 2.

Yuri Lowell

Dependable | Round 3

"So, you ever think the way you're going about this has already pretty much blown up in your face and hasn't actually done you any good at all?"

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Yuri's hair is longer than that of most of the characters of any gender. It's also the source of Terumi's nickname for him.
  • Oblivious to Love: Luca's flirting always flies right over Yuri's head.
  • Rebellious Spirit: Has this in spades. He's consistently making messes in trying to make things difficult for the Coordinators.

Yuuki Terumi

Tenacious | Round 3

"Hah, nice thought, but there can only be one of me."

One of the culprits of Week 5 (Case 5).

  • Enemies Equals Greatness: Terumi loves being hated, which is why he goes so over-the-top with antagonizing everyone. He admits in the ending log that being hated by people is what keeps him alive.
  • Giggling Villain: When is he not cackling to himself?
  • God in Human Form: His secret in the secrets motive is that he's Susanoo.
  • Last-Name Basis: He still always goes by "Terumi."
  • Shonen Hair: An evil version that emphasizes the "untamed" part of the aesthetic.

    The Coordinators & Others 

Alena Larimore

Coordinator | Round 3

"I'm not worried about getting hurt."

Rachel-as-Alena is punished during Week 6. The real Alena is a deadland NPC.

  • Empty Eyes: When she executes people, she looks like either she's given up or she's being mind-controlled. That's because it's Rachel, being ordered to do it.
  • Friendly Enemy: Subverted. You think she'll be this because she doesn't like her job, but she discourages the Participants from acting friendly towards her.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Her half of her and Hilda's shared room has a pile of them.
  • Motherly Scientist: As shown in Round 3, Alena built a Robot Girl who sees her as a mother. She also made Ziska and Johanna, but sees her sisters, not herself, as their caretakers.
  • Reluctant Psycho: Just like in Round 3, she hates murder and the murdergame industry, but she's reluctantly participating anyway.

Jericho (Lisbeth Larimore)

Coordinator | Round 6/1

"Guilty, innocent, whatever you are -– good luck and do your best!"

Spared by the survivor pool.

  • Alliterative Name: Lisbeth Larimore, her real name.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Lisbeth is in love with Dio. To her credit, she knows he'll never love her, and her sisters' well-being and the will of her Stand convince her to ditch him.
  • Canon Character All Along: Not from an established outside canon, but from Trustfell itself. He is a she: Lisbeth, the Round 1 deadland NPC.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Played for Laughs. Even Jericho thinks Zagi was a mess.
  • Forgotten Friend, New Foe: Sort of, for the Round 1 cast. Even though they're alternate selves from this timeline offshoot, she treats them like the same versions and creates the "Jericho" persona to separate herself from them.
  • Giggling Villain: Jericho doesn't seem to take anything seriously, and he always sounds like he's having a great time.
  • A God I Am Not: When explaining the limits of Cascada, her Stand, Jericho says that without those limits, "I'm pretty sure that would make me God, and no one wants that."
  • Hypocrite: Jericho insists on painting people like Alex, Sigrun, and Elda as dangerous and destructive for taking harmful risks to protect their loved ones and endangering others in the process. She still refuses to consider that the calamity could have been caused by Dio, her sisters, or Rachel, and when the last of these is confirmed, she has a Villainous Breakdown and wants to kill the Participants anyway just to make herself feel better and keep on with her murderous plan rather than harm Rachel.
  • In-Series Nickname: The Participants disparage him by calling him "Jerry." Terumi amends this to "Jeri" after the reveal.
  • Mad Love: For her boss, Dio, of all people. At least she admits that he doesn't return it.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Jericho himself is one of the round's requisite vampires. Dio turned Lisbeth after Round 1 and gave her a Stand.
  • Perpetual Smiler: When we finally see what she looks like, she's this, even when telling the Participants that they all need to die... until they figure out what really happened to cause the cataclysm, at which point Lisbeth has a Villainous Breakdown.
  • Right-Hand Cat: Catfriend, actually named Johanna, belongs to Jericho.
  • Sanity Slippage: Rachel observes that Lisbeth has been Drunk with Power since getting her Stand, plus her refusal to accept the true cause of the cataclysm made her more and more dangerous and less rational. This is especially observable when the survivor pool discovers that Rachel pulling the unstable world open, not whoever it was from the world itself arriving, caused the cataclysm, a fact that Lisbeth ordered her to ignore.
  • Squat's in a Name: Various characters try to figure out the symbolism of his using a Biblical name, but an explanation doesn't come up.
  • Tom the Dark Lord: Averted with "Jericho," but true of "Lisbeth," though "Larimore" is still a more impressive surname than her old alias, "Lisbeth Benn."
  • Villainous Crossdresser: Sort of. She pretends to be a man and doesn't show her face just in case something resonates with the Round 1 cast and they recognize her. Also so that she can stay detached and not face what she's doing.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Running murdergames en masse to reverse the end of the world.

Hilda Larimore

Coordinator | Round 2/4

"Do I even want to know what happened here?"

Rachel-as-Hilda is spared by the survivor pool. The real Hilda appears briefly in the end.

  • Everything's Sparkly with Jewelry: Owns a bunch of costume jewelry in addition to the locket we saw in Round 2, not that we see her wear any of it.
  • Iconic Item: Always seen with a notebook, which is confirmed late in the round to be Ziska.
  • Knight Templar: Still as willing as ever to kill in order to cut down the multiverse's numbers of "bad people."
  • The Real Remington Steele: The "Hilda" of Round 6 was Rachel, but the real Hilda shows up in the epilogue.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Her clothes are black and her bedsheets are black and red. Hilda's still not completely evil, but she's definitely okay with killing games.


Coordinator | Round 2/5

"I do what I was put here to do and I'm a bad person so people don't have to be."

  • Domain Holder: Being the building's AI, she runs the simulation. This is how she can create passages, restore areas to new, keep fire from spreading, and copy powers and weapons.
  • His Quirk Lives On: An odd version: when we see Rachel admit to being Rachel, she embraces traits of all the "faces" she's worn throughout the game: the occasional cursing R2 Tarrlok taught "Glory," the question-dodging "Michaela" made into an art form, the way "Alena" tried to keep the Participants at arm's length but reluctantly grew to care for them, and "Hilda's" sense of justice even when bound by the rules.
  • I Have Many Names: Every administrator gives her a new name, which is part of why we know her by so many.
  • Robot Girl: She's the same Rachel who was built by Alena and discussed in Round 3.
  • Themed Aliases: All her aliases were named for someone the user cared about yet were conflicted about losing: Hilda and Alena for Lisbeth, Michael for Alex, and for Mettaton, himself (Glory=Vainglorious, his backstory title).
  • Two Aliases, One Character: Alena and Hilda are both being impersonated by Rachel, and she's confirmed to be Glory/Michaela, too.
  • Walking Spoiler: Very little of this character can be discussed, at least with regards to what she does in Round 6, without spoiling the entire thing.


??? | Round 4

"I'm okay! I don't have anything to complain about!"

  • Bit Character: She had a big role in Round 4, but here, she only shows up very late in the game, still as cheerful as ever.


How well does it match the trope?
