Starting Roster

    Battler Ushiromiya 

Voiced by: Daisuke Ono
The main protagonist of the Umineko visual novel series, he fights to prove that the Rokkenjima murders of October 1986 were committed by human means rather than magic against his opponent, the Golden Witch Beatrice. Depending on who he's teaming up with, his role changes from helping Beatrice reclaim her Golden Witch title, finally putting an end to Beatrice's game or amassing his personal harem as the Game Master. His signature ability is Resurrection, which gradually restores the player's health for a while.
  • Boring, but Practical: His ability, Resurrection, gradually heals the player's health for a set period of time. Nothing too fancy, yet very useful.
  • Brain Bleach: Poor Battler gets quite an eyeful of Ronove flashing him in their ending.
  • Clothing Combat: One of his normal moves has him taking his jacket off to swing it down on top of his opponent. He can also use his tie as a makeshift whip in midair.
  • Handsome Lech: Hoo boy, the fact that he uses his Sommelier's Finger to grope women's breasts pretty much defines him as one.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: His SP version of Blue Truth has him fire a small laser at the opponent. His Meta-Super takes this trope Up to Eleven, firing a massive beam at the enemy.
  • Meaningful Name: In a rather amusing way, his name's Battler Ushiromiya and since this is a fighting game, guess what he spends most of the time doing?
  • Power Perversion Potential: As mentioned above, he uses his Sommelier's Finger to grab women by their boobs. Yeah.
  • Shotoclone: Fitting for the main character of a fighting game.
    • Blue Truth is his Hadouken, a projectile executed with the quarter-circle forwards motion.
    • Blue Strike is his Shoryuken, a short-range vertical attack done with the "Dragon Punch" motion.
    • Sommelier's Finger is his Tatsumaki Senpukyaku, an attack that moves him forwards and is done with a quarter-circle backwards motion.
  • Thanks for the Mammary: One of his SP Supers has him charging forward with his palms outstretched, if it connects, he proceeds to "attack" the female characters, all while sporting hearts on his eyes and a perverted grin. How it works on male characters too is anyone's guess.


Beatrice voiced by: Sayaka Ohara
Seven Stakes voiced by: Aki Toyosaki (Asmodeus), Yuri Yamaoka (Beelzebub), Seiko Yoshida (Belphegor), Madoka Yonezawa (Leviathan), Yuka Saito (Lucifer), Ayano Matsumoto (Mammon), Yōko Hikasa (Satan)
The titular Golden Witch, she was the one who started the game involving the Rokkenjima massacres and clashes with Battler to prove that magic and witches exist and that the massacres were done via magic. Her ability, Infinite SP, allows her to use a single SP bar for free, albeit only once.
  • Ass Kicks You: Her forward+Medium attack has her do this to her opponent.
  • Combat Stilettos: Some of her normal moves involve kicking her opponent with her high heels, and she can even run with them.
  • Flechette Storm: Her projectile move, where she summons the Stakes of Purgatory into huge needles that she throws at her opponent, and its SP version has her throwing all seven of them.
  • Obvious Rule Patch: She could do crazy combos like this, which lasted 278 hits! (even a damage touch can't save you from a super, or from a dizzy-combo), the very next patch modifying the move to prevent these kinds of abuses.
  • One to Million to One: She can do this for her backstep, as well as her rushing move, called "I Am The Golden Storm!": Beatrice transforms into a swarm of golden butterflies that travel a certain distance, then they regroup into Beatrice.
  • Parachute Petticoat: She is capable of this maneuver, useful to avoid punishment.
  • Shotoclone: Like Battler, her specials consist of a projectile, an anti-air uppercut and a rushdown attack.
    • Her projectile has her send out one of the Seven Stakes of Purgatory in her stake form to skewer her opponent, with the SP version siccing all seven on them.
    • Her shoryuken has her swing her arm upwards, slicing the enemy with the Red Truth, with the SP version doing it twice.
    • Her rushdown attack has her turn into a swarm of butterflies before plowing through the opponent, with the SP version knocking them up into the air.
  • Summon Magic: Mainly uses the Seven Stakes as her projectiles.
  • Trampled Under Foot: Her winpose against certain opponents has her walking across the stage only to grind her heel on her fallen enemy.

    Ange Ushiromiya 

Ange voiced by: Rina Sato
Sakutarou voiced by: Minori Chihara
The only member of the Ushiromiya clan who did not come to the ill-fated 1986 meeting at Rokkenjima. She would later go there many years later as Ange Beatrice, the Witch of Resurrection, to uncover the truth. Her ability, Stun Boost, increases stun damage dealt for a while.
  • Dangerously Short Skirt: Wears one. She remains well covered at all times, even with the considerable amount of high kicks and jumping she does.
  • Death from Above: Her Meta-Super has her throw herself off the top of a skyscraper and land right on top of her opponent for massive damage.
  • Dynamic Entry: Her intro has her smash through a window onto the stage.
  • Flechette Storm: Like Beatrice above, one of her specials has her summon the Stakes of Purgatory in their needle forms to skewer her foe, with the SP version summoning all seven of them.
  • Gratuitous English: "See you next time."note 
  • Kick Chick: She does most of the fighting only with kicks; justified as she has her hands occupied with Maria's diary, which she uses to summon the Stakes of Purgatory.
  • Puppet Fighter: Plays this role when Sakutarou is out, although compared to other Puppet Fighters hers is somewhat limited, as she can only command Sakutarou to attack her opponent outside of other moves.
  • Summon Magic: She can summon Sakutarou and the Stakes of Purgatory to fight for her.
  • Throw the Book at Them: One of her attacks. It must be heavy, because it has a slow wind-up and a heavy whallop.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: One of her special moves is a German Suplex.
  • Yaoi Fangirl: Played for Laughs in her ending with Virgilia; apparently she really digs the idea of shipping Battler with Ronove.


Voiced by: Yuka Saito
The elder sister of the Seven Stakes of Purgatory, a set of furniture belonging to the Game Master. She represents the sin of pride, and she does it quite well. Her ability, Attack Touch, allows her to do a free Attack Touch, regardless of the Touch Gauge's state.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: Does this when doing a Touch with her partner.
  • Ass Kicks You: Just like Beatrice above, her forward+B attack has her cheekily (heh) do this to her foe.
  • Assist Character: She also appears in some of Ange and Beatrice's attacks alongside her fellow sisters. She can also summon the aforementioned sisters in her Meta-Super.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Of the removable variant; she can summon a magic purple blade to slice her opponent up.
  • Eyelid Pull Taunt: Does one in her taunt.
  • Flechette Storm: Her Meta-Super has her throwing her sisters in the form of huge needles, with Lucifer delivering the final blow.


Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita
One of the Great Demons of the 72 Pillars, he rents his services to a master in exchange for compensation. He currently works for Beatrice as her personal butler and head furniture. His ability, Counter Boost, greatly boosts the damage of his counter attacks for a set period of time.


Voiced by: Kikuko Inoue
The previous Endless Witch, she was Beatrice's mentor who taught her everything to know about magic. Though she's not too happy at how Beatrice uses her power, she nonetheless still supports her cause and wishes for her victory. Her ability is Brimful, which generates SP for both Virgilia and her partner over time.
  • Giant Mook: Her 214 special allows her to summon her Goat Servants to lob her opponent across the stage, and its SP version summons all of them who run over her opponent in a Zerg Rush.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Conjures up magic candlesticks and other furniture to attack her foes as well as a broomstick to literally sweep them off their feet.
  • Lady of Black Magic: She is a purely magical fighter and throughout the duration of the fights will always maintain a certain air and a relaxed and graceful composure even when she is defeated.
  • Lethal Chef: Apparently, for all her grace and elegance, she's not the greatest cook around as her ending with Chiester 410 shows.
  • Spot of Tea: Stops to have a quick cup as she pummels her opponent with enchanted furniture in her SP 2 attack.
  • Summon Magic: Her entire fighting style is based on evoking magical objects and servants.
  • Zerg Rush: As mentioned above, she can summon her goat butlers to stampede all over her opponent in her 214 SP.


Voiced by: Rie Kugimiya
One of two servants present at Rokkenjima at the time things went south, alongside her younger brother Kanon. She also has a bad habit of constantly breaking mirrors, giving her 1000 years bad luck. Her ability, Auto-Guard, allows her to automatically block attacks for a while.
  • Aside Glance: If she wins against anybody but Kanon, she will do this, after setting a small mat on the floor, and setting a small picnic with cake and tea, as if acknowledging how ridiculous it is for her to be winning against anybody.
  • Barrier Warrior: She can create energy barriers in front of her that stop enemy movement, and a force field around her that protects her for a brief instant. She even uses this for her grab attack, by using the barrier to crush her opponent.
  • The Beastmaster: She can summon seagulls of all things to attack her opponents.
  • Blood from the Mouth: Poor Shannon gets this after getting offed by Black Battler in their ending.
  • Boobs of Steel: She is well endowed, and has the highest health out of all the female characters and the second highest overall. Only Ronove, another defensive character but more close-range and counterattack oriented, edges her out.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Some of her attacks include tripping on her feet while carrying (and dropping) a tea set on her opponent and bowing while apologizing, headbutting her foe in the process.
  • Fighting Clown: Half this and half Barrier Warrior, with her basic attacks involving attacking with cleaning implements, or doing things like dropping a tea-set on the enemy after tripping, and girly slaps and pushes, going so far as to even call seagulls to help her in combat. She's still as effective as any other character, and doesn't have any problem in going against the witches or their familiars.
  • Gag Boobs: While she was already well-endowed in the original visual novel (which Battler lampshades), her breasts are definitely treated this way in the anime and manga. In this game, she's the only character with an animated Meta-Declaration, for obvious reasons.
  • Gainaxing: Her breasts jiggle every time she performs a special attack.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: She can pull out carpet-beaters, pulling carts, mats, serving trays, seagull feed, umbrellas and endless supplies of tea sets to drop out of nowhere, unlike Virgilia, who clearly uses magic to make her weapons appear.
  • Improbable Weapon User, Carpet-beaters, pulling carts, mats, serving trays, seagull feed, umbrellas, tea sets...
  • Parasol of Pain: One of her attacks has her pull one out to attack her opponent.


Voiced by: Yuu Kobayashi
One of two servants present at Rokkenjima at the time things went sour, Kanon works as a servant for the Ushiromiya family alongside his older sister Shannon and is romantically involved with Jessica. His ability, Silent Attack, reduces the amount of SP that his opponent gains from his attacks.
  • Battle Butler: Just like Ronove.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Like Lucifer above, he uses a magic red blade as his primary weapon.
  • Dragged into Drag: Is unwillingly forced into cosplaying as Reimu alongside Jessica (who's dressed as Marisa) in their ending.
  • Fragile Speedster: He has one of the smallest health bars in the game, but many of his special attacks give him great mobility.


Voiced by: Miki Ito
At first she was some sort of Enemy Within lurking inside Eva Ushiromiya until she solved the riddle of the Epitaph and was recognized as Beatrice's successor as a result. Ridiculously cruel even by witch standards, she would often abuse her powers to kill and revive people in various brutal and unusual ways before finishing them off. This lead her to gain cheery titles such as "The Cruel Witch" and "The Black Witch". Her ability, Berserk, boosts her attack power for a while.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Compared to the original work. See Big Sister Instinct.
  • Ax-Crazy: Boy is she ever.
  • The Berserker: Unlike other witches who use magic to fight their foes, she opts to just beat them to a bloody pulp. This is even reflected in her ability, Berserk, which boosts her attack for a while.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Although in the main series she had no scruples and regrets in killing and torturing Rosa together with her daughter Maria because she did not want her human self Eva to give to their sister her legitimate share of the gold, in this game not only does she show no problem (well at least after being defeated) in giving Rosa the share of which she needs to pay off all the debts (in the storymode of Rosa and Beatrice) but she is even sincerely willing to assist her in her enterprise in being able to transform herself into a witch/magical girl (in their storymode).
  • Edible Ammunition: Not really ammo, but two of her attacks utilize food:
    • Her Three-Coloured Jelly Time special has her create a large plateful of jelly that depending on the button used will shift either left or right, or just stand still. These can take a single attack before breaking apart. She can also dump a larger one on top of her opponent in the SP version of the attack.
    • Her All the Chocolate and Cheese You Can Eat SP has her grab her foe before dumping a load of cheese and chocolate on top of them.
  • Fighting from the Inside: If she gets dizzy from an attack, she'll briefly flash between her human and witch selves, most likely signifying this.
  • Full-Contact Magic: She uses surprisingly little magic compared to the other Beatrices, most of her attacks involving clubbing and kicking the enemy to death. This is most likely because Eva, her human counterpart, is a martial artist.
  • I Know Madden Kombat: Her forward B has her swing her staff at her opponent like a golf club, launching them up into the air. She even says "Nice shot!" as she does it!
  • I Shall Taunt You: Always speaks in a mocking tone towards her opponent.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Her "Dreams of Flying" special attack, if you use the SP version, recreates Rosa's death from Episode 3 of the Sound Novel as a pointed fence appears below her opponent.
  • Kill 'Em All: In one of her endings, she ends up butchering the whole cast.
  • Metronomic Man Mashing: Her Meta Super has her encase her opponent in a web and wildly slam them back and forth onto the ground with her staff.
  • Why Won't You Die?: Her Special 2 is called "If only you'd just give up and die!".

    Chiester 410 

410 voiced by: Eri Kitamura
45 voiced by: Mariko Izuno
00 voiced by: Shion Hirota
One of the many furniture under Beatrice's employ, she is a member of the Chiester Sister Imperial Guard Corps, a deadly group able to kill anyone with absolute accuracy. Her signature weapon is a bow of light, capable of shooting anyone from Chiester 45's data. Her ability, Break Boost, increases the rate that she can fill up her opponent's Break Limit gauge.
  • Assist Character: She can call in Chiesters 00 and 45 to aid her in her Meta Super.
  • Chekhov's Skill: Chiester 410 was described on her TIPS as having great combat skills, but was never able to show them. Come this game, and she was chosen to represent the Chiester Sisters as a playable character.
  • Energy Bow: She creates one of these for one of her special moves, and fires light arrows.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Her signature ability thanks to Chiester 45. This is shown with her projectiles, which will always home in on her opponent no matter where they are.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: In her scenario with Rosa she does not like the idea of making a team with her (which makes sense if you think that Rosa is the Black Witch responsible for the death of one of her sisters).
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Carrots, unsurprisingly. This also overlaps with Stock Animal Diet, considering that she's a rabbit girl.
  • Wall Jump: She's capable of this.

Debuting in X

    Jessica Ushiromiya 

Voiced by: Marina Inoue
One of the more rebellious members of the Ushiromiya clan, Jessica has no interest in their squabbles over the family inheritance and dislikes her parents, though she does show concern for them from time to time. She is also romantically involved with one of the servants, Kanon. Her ability, Shave Booster, increases her chip damage and prevents the opponent from recovering their health.

    George Ushiromiya 

Voiced by: Kenichi Suzumura
The son of Eva and Hideyoshi Ushiromiya, he works as an apprentice for his father's company. He is also the oldest of the four cousins and often acts as the peacemaker of the group. His ability, aptly named Patience, increases the amount of meter he gets when blocking attacks. His partner can also gain meter while blocking so long as the ability is active.
  • Counter-Attack: "Teachings of the Monarch", his Meta-Super, only works if he is hit by a melee attack.
  • Extremity Extremist: Almost exclusively uses kicks to attack.
  • I Kiss Your Foot: In his story mode with Ronove, he forces Lucifer and perhaps Shannon to do this in order to prove to them that he is a very attractive and cruel man.
  • Kick Them While They Are Down: His Meta-Super ends with him kicking his downed opponent away like a soccer ball.
  • Mr. Fanservice: His ending with Ronove demonstrates exactly that he is.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: Occasionally gets these when he gets angry.
  • Wall Jump: His "Flying Meteor Kick", which can only be done in the air while near the edge of the screen, is an offensive variation of this trope.

    Rosa Ushiromiya 

Rosa voiced by: Ami Koshimizu
Maria voiced by: Yui Horie
The fourth and youngest child of Kinzo Ushiromiya, she is the mother of Maria and is ranked fifth out of the family and first in terms of parental strength. Her ability, Detachment, enables her to disable her opponent's Touch Gauge for ten seconds if she manages to hit them while active, preventing them from switching partners.
  • Action Mom: She is Maria's mother, and a very strong fighter who can hold her own against other powerful adversaries with a set of improvised weapons, being the sawed-off rifle her main one.
  • Almighty Mom: As the Black Witch, Rosa deliberately plays this role in her route with Chiester 410, so much so that none of the every magical characters are able to stop her from destroying their castles and worlds of dreams and hopes.
  • Blown Across the Room: All of her rifle attacks will throw opponents off their feet; many of them will bounce them off the far edge of the stage.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: The main reason why she is so determined to want to become a witch or a magical girl is because she can't bear that her magically rejuvenated older sister can easily use magic and wearing a beautiful outfits while Rosa cannot despite both having solved the epigraph in her route with EVA-Beatrice.
  • Guns Akimbo: Her Meta-Super involves Maria giving Rosa an extra gun so that she can launch a mega-combo against her opponent like this.
  • Improvised Weapon: Aside from a sawed-off rifle, she also carries other tools to battle: her throw has her stabbing her opponent with a pen, and in one of her supers, she strikes her opponent with a massive gold ingot.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Still in her story mode with EVA-Beatrice, she is so obsessed with winning Beatrice and Virgilia's trial that she doesn't even care that she is considered a witch or a magical girl as long as she too can achieve the same powerful magical powers as her sister as well as a very cute look as hers.
  • Kick Chick: Just like for Ange, half of her combat moves that don't require the use of her rifle held in her hands are kicks.
  • Magical Girl: If Rosa ally with Eva-Beatrice, she will envy her sister's cute clothes and magical powers and their story mode will have as objective to be able to transform themselves into the Magical Beatrice team.
    Rosa: "A wink with a billion sparkles! Magical Rosa!!"
  • Mama Bear: One of her intros has her defending Maria from a Goat Butler. And then there's her quote when she activates Meta-World.
    Rosa (activating Meta-World): "I will protect Maria!"
  • The Pen Is Mightier: Her grip recalls the scene of the second episode in which at one point she pulled a fountain pen out of her pocket and thrust it forcefully into the eye of a goat butler, killing it instantly.
  • The Protagonist: She is the main character of all the scenarios that she shares with other characters with a story mode.
  • Pistol-Whipping: Does this a lot, but it is justified due to the game mechanics; before she can fire her rifle, she has to charge it first.
  • Sanity Slippage: Not even in the mother series Rosa was the most mentally stable individual on the island but at least we had to acknowledge the fact that she never evolved in a total Ax-Crazy as did the other half of the human cast of the series. Here, in regards to her story mode with Battler, Rosa shoots and kills her own nephew smiling without mercy and then, when she realizes too late that Beatrice has betrayed her and blows up all of Rokkenjima with both her and Maria, she becomes a shameless female copy of Kinzo, laughing hysterically and screaming out the witch's name like her old man.
  • Sawed-Off Shotgun: Her main weapon: She can aim in three different directions, however, she can only fire it once before recharging.
  • Use Your Head: Her close C has her headbutting her opponent.
  • Villain Protagonist:
    • The scenario with Battler is an even more obscure rapresentation of Episode 2 in which Rosa ultimately turns out to be one of the culprits, firing and killing Battler in an appallingly similar manner to Eva doing the same in Episode 3.
    • In the scenario with Chiester 410, she mercilessly destroys the dreams and hopes of Ange, Kanon, Shannon, Beatrice and Maria as a way to oblige the latter to put her toys in order.
  • Witch Species: Played with. Since in the original visual novel (and in both the manga and anime adaptations) there has always been this doubt about the fact that Rosa, just like her daughter Maria, her sister Eva and Sayo, was able to develop her own witch-form in the fantasy sequences, known only under the title of "Black Witch" and to which the responsibility for the deaths of Chiester 556 and Sakutaro is to be attributed. In this game, depending on the characters with which she is paired and with whom she clashes (and depending on some dialogue interactions), Rosa is considered in all respects a witch.

Debuting in CROSS

    Dlanor A. Knox 

Dlanor voiced by: Miyuki Sawashiro
Gertrude voiced by: Shizuka Itō
Cornelia voiced by: Risa Asaki
Dlanor is the Head Inquisitor of Eiserne Jungfrau, a trio of furniture consisting of herself, Cornelia and Gertrude who work under Erika Furudo, with names such as "Dlanor of the Ten Wedges" and "Death Sentence Dlanor". She dual wields a pair of blades known as the Red Key and the Blue Key, which are basically weaponized Red and Blue Truths. She was summoned by Erika to Rokkenjima to aid her in denying Battler and Beatrice of their gameboard. Her ability, Armor Boost, reduces the amount of damage taken by half, with the exception of command grabs.
  • Assist Character: Gertrude and Cornelia appear in some of her attacks to help her out.
  • Barrier Warrior: She can summon Cornelia in one move to create a projectile-negating barrier that lasts as long as she doesn't get hit.
  • Battle Aura: Gets a downright fierce red aura in her intro with Bernkastel.
  • BFS: Her Red Key, a large sword made out of the Red Truth.
  • Combination Attack: The SP version of her Shield Bash has both Gertrude and Cornelia join her in tackling her opponent to the ground.
  • Dual Wielding: Is capable of doing this, though most of the time she just uses her Red Key to fight.
  • Glacier Waif: Has a waifish build, yet she moves and hits like a semi-truck.
  • Gratuitous German: All of her special moves, aside from "The Knox Decalogue", have German names.
  • Meganekko: Some of her character sprites occasionally have her wearing glasses.
  • Mighty Glacier: Dlanor is pretty slow, but she compensates with good range for her strong normal moves, and has a powerful grappling move.
  • Shield Bash: One of her special attacks has her charge towards her opponent while covered in a red aura.
  • Spam Attack: Dlanor's Meta-Super has her spamming hyper-fast stabs with her Red Key, all the while crying "DEATHDEATHDEATHDEATHDEATHDEATHDEATHDEATH..."
  • Super Armor: Her ability grants her partner reduced damage from attacks.
  • Trampled Underfoot: Her throw: She begins by headbutting her opponent, knocking them down, then proceeds to mercilessly walk on them. For some unfortunate souls, it also counts as a Groin Attack.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Her special move "The Knox Decalogue" is a gravity-assisted backbreaker.

    Erika Furudo 

Voiced by: Natsuko Kuwatani
An unexpected guest who suddenly showed up on Rokkenjima out of the blue, she is a detective and self-proclaimed "intellectual rapist". However, it's eventually revealed that she is a piece introduced into Beatrice's gameboard by Bernkastel with the expressed purpose of denying her and Battler their gameboard. Her ability, Force Counter, allows her to register every first attack of a combo on her opponent as a counterattack.
  • Counter-Attack: Her "Little Gray Cells" has her posing for a while, if her opponent attacks her at this moment, they'll be wide open for a while, as Erika teleports behind them, allowing her to retaliate.
  • Diving Kick: Her Meta-Super, called "A Pefect Autopsy", starts with this.
  • Double Jump: One of the only two characters to have this, the other being Bernkastel.
  • Flung Clothing: Taken Up to Eleven. She somehow wears her standard costume beneath her sleeveless, legless, skintight swimsuit.
  • Sinister Scythe: Her Weapon of Choice.
  • Slashed Throat: Her Meta-Super finishes with this: After divekicking her opponent, we are treated to a very strange scene where Erika, who is all of a sudden wearing her swimsuit, climbs up the outside of the guesthouse. One Screamer Prank later, she stuffs her opponent into a garbage bag, and slices their throat with her scythe.

    Black Battler 

Black Battler voiced by: Daisuke Ono
Rudolf voiced by: Rikiya Koyama
Kyrie voiced by: Atsuko Tanaka
An Anthropomorphic Personification of theories of Battler and his parents being the culprits for the Rokkenjima massacre, he was created by an unknown theatergoer to fulfill his role as the culprit of the story. His ability, Massacre, allows him to drain his opponent's health with his attacks and add it to his own.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of the idea that Battler is the culprit for the murders in Rokkenjima.
  • Assist Character: He can summon Kyrie and Rudolf in his SP 2 super to act as an impromptu firing squad on his opponent.
  • Ax-Crazy: And how! His debut story (Forgery No. XXX) has him (and Rudolf and Kyrie) butchering the entire Ushiromiya clan!
    • Some of the fanart in the game also paint him in this light, often giving him downright deranged expressions.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Like the others, he wears a fancy suit and tie.
  • Battle Aura: Unlike the other characters, he is surrounded by a shadowy black aura.
  • Creepy Monotone: Always speaks in an emotionless tone. That said, when he decides to turn up the volume...
    Black Battler (when doing his Meta-Super): "I'll fill up everything... WITH THOUSANDS OF BLACK FORGERIES!"
  • Evil Counterpart: Not so much for himself (he's more of an Evil Twin), but to his abilities; he wields Black Forgery-based attacks as opposed to Battler's Blue Truth ones.
    • This is also reflected in their abilities; Battler's ability heals him/his partner for a set period of time, whereas Black Battler's ability does it by stealing his opponent's life.
  • Evil Twin: Is basically a more twisted version of regular Battler.
  • Glass Cannon: He is capable of dealing crazy amounts of damage, but he has the lowest health.
  • Hellish Pupils: Though you'd have to look closely to actually see them.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: Like Battler, his Meta-Super has him fire a large laser beam at the enemy for massive damage.
  • Knight of Cerebus: While the other characters get some humourous moments in their stories and endings, this guy... doesn't. The fact that he only has one story (with Shannon, where he kills off the other characters) speaks volumes about this dude.
  • Life Drain: His ability, Massacre, enables him to drain his opponent's health and replenish his with it, similar to Ragna and his Soul Eater Drive. It gets even more broken when he's fought as the Final Boss.
  • Me's a Crowd: If fought in the arcade mode, he'll be accompanied by another Black Battler.
  • Moveset Clone: His moveset is mostly the same as regular Battler's. Justified, as he's a clone of him. That said, there are a few differences:
    • While Battler's "Blue Truth" is a standard projectile, Black Battler's "Black Truth" creates a small explosion at the opponent's location. This also applies to his SP version, which has him make several of them as opposed to Battler's which takes the form of a laser blast.
    • Other than a cutting/blood-spilling effect, his "Black Strike" is mostly the same as Battler's "Blue Strike". Ditto his "Black Raid" for Battler's "Blue Raid".
    • His "Deathfinger" has him teleport towards his opponent and slash them as opposed to Battler's "Sommelier Finger". And while the latter's SP version has him grope his opponent by their breasts, Black Battler's has him teleport to them and just pummel them in the face.
    • His SP 2, as mentioned above, has him summon Kyrie and Rudolf to open fire on his opponent while Battler instead rushes in and does an autocombo on them.
  • Non-Indicative Name: He's named Black Battler, and yet he wears purple.
  • Palette Swap: Is pretty much Battler except in purple. And evil.
  • Practically Joker: He wears a purple suit, is Ax-Crazy and homicidal, prone to Evil Laughter, Psychotic Smirk and Slasher Smile, and has a very twisted sense of humor.
  • Purple Is the New Black / Purple Is Powerful: Wears a purple suit.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Unlike normal Battler, he has red eyes that serve as a indication of him being an emotionless, cold-blooded killer powered by theories about Battler being the culprit.
  • Sadist: Gets his kicks from making people suffer.
  • Secret Character: He needs to be unlocked by clearing arcade mode before you can play as him. However, you don't need to actually defeat him.
  • Screw Yourself: One of his quotes after defeating Battler implies this.
    • A unlockable guest art even teases this.
  • Shotoclone: Like regular Battler, he has a projectile move, an anti-air move and a rushing move.
  • SNK Boss: He can be unlocked as a playable character and is well balanced, however, his boss version gains life from damage dealt (which is usually a 100% heal), recovers life over time, takes little damage, does gigantic damage, crushes defense within a few hits, has infinite Special Meter and auto guard (can block while attacking or even while taking damage). And while you need to change your character using a usually risky and highly-punishable move to activate one of your two special abilities for a short period of time, Black Battler has eight of those special abilities ALWAYS active.
  • Some Call Me "Tim": Ingame, his name is shortened to B.Battler.
  • True Final Boss: Plays this role in the arcade mode if the player clears it on hard without continuing.

Debuting in the Spring 2012 patch

The Witch of Miracles, Bernkastel is an extremely powerful witch who has lived for a thousand years. It's said that she lives in a world where concepts like fate and possibility can be visualized. She is capable of creating many miracles with her immense power. However, at a price her heart ends up breaking bit by bit each time she does it, which probably explains the state she's in now. Her ability, Meta Boost, speeds up her Meta gauge's regeneration and also increases the duration of her activated Meta World.
  • All Witches Have Cats: Bernkastel is able to summon her cat minions to attack her opponent, or use them as projectiles.
  • Casting a Shadow: Kitty shadows, to be exact.
  • Crazy Cat Lady: She has an army of shadow cats at her disposal, and she's also stark raving bonkers.
  • Double Jump: She's one of the only two characters capable of this, the other one being Erika, and she even has a short air dash.
  • An Ice Person: Aside from her cats, Bernkastel can also use ice magic against her opponents depending on how many fragments she's got orbiting around her.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Aside from her cats, she also weaponizes fragments to use against her foes.

The Witch of Certainty, she used to known as the most powerful witch around until she lost to Bernkastel in "another game". She's also known as the Witch of the Absolute and her magic of certainty allows her to kill anyone with an absolute result. Despite her immense power, she prefers to use traps and zoning to fight her opponents. She also has a bad habit of wasting food. Her ability, Ultra Paper, completely empties her Break Limit bar.
  • Death from Above: Her Meta-Super has her conjure a massive candy/present meteor to drop down on top of her opponent for massive damage.
  • Eaten Alive: She does this to her opponents for her throw: She begins by turning her opponent into a small candy, and puts it in her mouth, but then decides she doesn't like how it tastes and spits it, turning her opponent back to normal.
  • Edible Ammunition: A lot of her attacks use candy, either as a thrown projectile or a floating landmine.
  • Hidden Buxom: Her ending with Jessica shows that she's quite busty beneath her regular outfit. Not as much as the other women, but it's there.
  • Leet Lingo: Her moveset is named in such a fashion.
  • Paper Fan of Doom: She attacks her opponents with one of these, for her C normal.
  • Unrealistic Black Hole: One of her specials has her create a miniature black hole to drag her opponent towards her.

A well-known detective who once worked in the SSVD, but eventually left due to him growing disenchanted with their extreme methods of dealing with witches. He was eventually brought over to Rokkenjima by Bernkastel to solve the mystery behind Lion Ushiromiya. His ability is SP Cancel, which enables him to cancel special moves into SP attacks of higher priority once (for instance, special->SP->Meta).
