"Our forces must be strong enough to complete these tasks. To accomplish this, we capture and utilize those with power. By gaining these rewards, we will grow in strength… and one day achieve our goal... We will kill the being who forced these rules upon the Earth... the creator- the God who resides on the other side of the book!"
-Juiz, Chapter 9

The Anti-Unidentified Phenomena Control Organization, a group made up of select Negators who hunt UMA and unselected Negators in order to complete quests set by the artifact Apocalypse, with the ultimate goal of gaining enough power to kill the being that lies on the other side of the book. Is and has been reformed multiple times throughout the various loops with different members.

Beware of unmarked spoilers

    open/close all folders 

    In General 
  • Arbitrary Headcount Limit:
    • There are a ton of Negators in the world, but only 10 of them can be active members of the Union at a time due to there being only ten seats on the round table. After capturing UMA Burn, Apocalypse grants them an 11th seat that they can fill. Starts with only two seats during a loop and expands from there.
    • This also applies to the quests Apocalypse gives them. Each has a maximum participant limit, which just serves to make the already difficult task of completing them all the harder.
  • Asskicking Leads to Leadership: The leadership of the Union is determined by whoever's produced the best results. Members are ranked in order, and newcomers start at the lowest level.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Their main uniform consists of a black suit and a red necktie. All suits are bullet and stab proof, and just very sturdy in general, and the people wearing them are powerful Negators that are well versed in combat.
  • Kill the God: The Union's ultimate goal is to kill whatever god has been sending UMAs into the world.
  • Klingon Promotion: The only way for a Negator to avoid being hunted down by the Union is to become a member. Unfortunately, the number of members is limited, so you have to kill an existing member to free up their seat.
    • As of the most recent iteration, this policy is gone as Fuuko wants to save as many Negators as possible with non-roundtable members acting as support.
  • Landmarking the Hidden Base: The Union has a massive, well-equipped secret underground base below Stonehenge.
  • Memory-Wiping Crew: A division of the organization is this, responsible for wiping the memories of civilians that have witnessed the organization's activities. Revealed to be an invention of Nico's.
  • Mutant Draft Board: Void claims that the Union hunts down any Negator who isn't affiliated with them, though this falls by the wayside as the story goes on.
  • Non-Uniform Uniform: All of the Union wears some form of a black and white suit with gold accents and a red tie, but almost all of the members modify it in some way. Andy's the only one who wears it "conventionally", despite his uniform being a UMA.
    • Juiz's uniform has epaulets.
    • Shen's (and Mui's) outfit looks like a sleeveless Taiji uniform.
    • Billy wears his jacket slung over his shoulders.
    • Phil wears suspenders instead of a jacket and shorts instead of pants.
    • Tatiana's encased in a giant orb (and can't wear clothes regardless because of how Untouchable works), but the color scheme still matches and it has a tie-shaped metal plate on the front.
    • Isshin wears samurai armor with matching colors and has a braided rope instead of a tie.
    • Top wears a black-and-yellow tracksuit and ties his tie around his arm.
    • Nico wears a jacket, but no shirt, and ties the tie around his forehead.
    • Fuuko ties her jacket around her waist and wears red mittens to prevent accidental unluck.
    • Chikara has a sweater vest with gold buttons instead of a formal jacket.
  • Punny Name: UN-ion.
  • Secret Circle of Secrets: The Union is the only group who knows about the more extraordinary rules of the universe.
  • Sigil Spam: All members of the Roundtable must wear the group's emblem (a stylized UN) on their uniform, as it is necessary for them to participate in quests. The symbol also appears on Union technology.
  • Standard Evil Organization Squad: Subverted. They look this way for the first few chapters, with named members wearing themed outfits hunting down the main characters, but once Fuuko and Andy join up they're revealed to be a mostly benevolent, if a bit morally gray, organization and the only thing standing between Ragnarok and a world full of unknowing innocents.
  • Translator Microbes: Their neckties contain a language translator.

Roundtable Members




Power: Unjustice
Click here to see her unmasked 

"I am simply.. acting in accordance with my own vision of justice. And what my justice includes... is protecting this planet, Earth... and the... innocent people who inhabit it."

(Former)Number 1 Negator and leader of the Union, a woman with a strong sense of justice. Her Unjustice ability allows her to negate her target's sense of justice, forcing them to act in such a way that opposes their moral standings.

  • The Ageless: A side effect of using the Ark to travel to the next loop is mostly stopping the aging process of the traveler.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Her right arm is blasted off by Billy during their confrontation in Winter's domain.
  • Big Good: She's the oldest member, a founding member, and the leader of the Union and the person most invested in saving mankind from Ragnarok.
  • Blind Justice: Her design, namely her helmet that hides her eyes, is a clear allusion to the idea that "Justice is blind."
  • The Corrupter: Downplayed as she isn't a villain, but this is an accurate way to describe her ability. He power negates her target's sense of justice, forcing them to do something that opposes their moral code. For example, when used on Andy, who desires only to protect Fuuko, he's forced to aim an attack at her against his will.
  • Deadly Gaze: Her power is sight based, meaning anyone in her field of vision is at risk of falling victim to it
  • The Determinator: She's lived through countless loops, gathering resources and powerful Negators trying to kill God, and despite failing just as many times, she refuses to give up. It's actually why Victor wants to kill her, knowing only death will ever stop her from trying to do an impossible task and he hates seeing her suffer for it.
  • Flaming Sword: After capturing UMA Burn, she gains one of these to use in battle.
  • For Great Justice: She has a strong vision of justice, which to her involves protecting the Earth and all of the innocent people on it.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Her goal is noble, but that doesn't mean her actions are always clean. She wipes out almost an entire alien race with little issue and isn't at all perturbed by the mass genocide she just caused, only letting a single one live so he can tell the rest of the galaxy that Earth is off-limits. She also has no issue using her power on her allies to keep them in line.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: She uses Rebellion, an Artifact that exchanges lifespan in exchange for power, to stall Sun for five minutes so Fuuko can safely loop, which ultimately costs her life.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: When she reveals the true nature of the world's loops to the rest of the Union, she fully admits that her manipulative actions and secret keeping are detestable qualities and even claims that she'd be willing to die to atone for her sins, bowing to them as she does so. The rest of the Union, however, don't believe she needs to lower herself like that, thinking she's done the best she could and deciding they still want to follow her.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: While she does apologize to Fuuko for sending the Union to kill her, she still considers her actions reasonable due to Unluck's sheer danger and unpredictability.
  • Lady of War: Has absolutely no problem with taking the battlefield herself, using a combination of her powers and a sword. She even notes her happiness at getting to fight alongside her comrades in the time it would take the Ark to start up while the final penalty 'Ragnarok' begins on top of the Union being beseiged.
  • Logical Weakness: While her power can really screw with people, it can easily backfire or do nothing if part of their sense of justice runs contrary to what she wants them to do. Billy finds this out the hard way when he tries to use it to make Tatiana attack Andy and Fuuko. He learns quickly to not use it so readilly.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name means "judge" in Portuguese, a reference to her power and general desire for justice.
  • Not So Stoic: While often depicted as being stone faced and no-nonsense, she does emote quite a bit throughout the series. She smiles softly when things are going the Union's way, is impassioned when she needs to make a point, and is even shown bawling her eyes out at Nico's death in a past loop.
  • One-Way Visor: Her helmet's visor completely covers her eyes, though she can remove it with the press of a button to reveal them.
  • One-Woman Army: Her power makes her capable of wiping out an entire army in seconds under the right circumstances.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: After the leader of the Acks tells her that the conquest of Earth is inevitable, she responds with the following:
    Juiz, taking off her helmet: Then I'll just have to negate that justice.
  • Psychic-Assisted Suicide: One possible outcome of her ability is this if the person affected's sense of justice involves them living or surviving in some way. Also can be Psychic Assisted Homicide if the person affected's sense of justice involves protecting someone else.
  • Punny Name: Her power is Un-Juiz-tice.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: While she's serious about her job and willing to do anything to keep the world safe, she's not cruel or unreasonable. She honestly answers questions when asked, listens to what her subordinates have to say, and even apologizes for sending other Union members to kill Fuuko.
  • Time Abyss: As a result of being The Ageless, she has been alive for quite a while, having lived through multiple versions of Earth in her attempts to kill God. Her exact age is unknown, but Victor implies that the two have both lived for 99 loops, which approximately means 455.4 billions of years.
  • The Unfettered: Was fully willing to have Fuuko killed prior to her joining the Union. Also, threatens Uma Spoil with death when if he doesn't help her fight Billy and Uma Burn.
  • We Used to Be Friends: With Victor, though it's heavily implied they were lovers as well. The two formed the Union together in an early loop and worked for thousands of years and across multiple loops together in the quest to kill God. Eventually, they had a falling out over whether it was even possible to achieve such a goal, with Victor tired of seeing her suffer trying while Juiz kept going, in part, hoping to make him smile again, leading to the end of their relationship as comrades.
  • You Are in Command Now: Juiz and Victor transfer their points from completing quests and capturing/killing UMA to Fuuko, making her the number 1 within the Union. This is done to enable Fuuko to loop, with her and Juiz noting that she didn't gain the points herself, but regardless she's the boss of the new Union.


Shen Xiang

Power: Untruth (Former)

Voiced by: Natsuki Hanae (JP)
Click here to see him as a Jiangshi 

"Poor thing... betcha wanted to avoid that one... didn't ya!"

The number 2 Negator of the Union, a young martial artist who greatly enjoys fighting. His Untruth ability negates any conscious thought his target has, causing them to do the opposite of what they are trying to do. His power only works if he's subconsciously fond of his target and he can see them.

  • Accidental Murder: He unintentionally caused his sister's death by accidentally using Untruth on her when she was dangling off a cliff, making her let go of his hand.
  • All Chinese People Know Kung-Fu: Explicitly called out to be a kung-fu practicioner by Mui, although the exact style is crafted for the series.
  • Blood Knight: He has an intense love for fighting strong opponents, and will often prioritize being able to fight the most powerful foe over completing the mission efficiently. This actually works to his advantage since it makes it much easier to meet Untruth's activation requirements against enemies in combat.
    • During the Spoil arc, he constantly badgers Andy about unsealing Victor so that the two can fight, and is absolutely delighted when Andy is forced to abide his requests in order to defeat Spoil.
    • During the Summer arc, he runs off to fight some of Summer's larger Juniors, leaving Andy and Fuuko to deal with Feng. However, when Feng suddenly summons a bunch of dead martial art masters using Game of Death, he immediately changes his mind and goes to fight Feng and the zombies instead.
  • Big Brother Instinct: As a child, his main focus was taking care of his little sister, Mei, doing things like protecting her from bullies and trying his best to earn money to support them both and give her a good life. He only agreed to let his master train him if said master would supply them both with a place to live, food, and schooling for Mei specifically.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Well, "brought down to non-negator zombie" would be a more accurate way to put it. After being killed and turned into a Jiangshi by Mui, Shen loses Untruth and it is passed to Mui. However, he ends up becoming stronger in the process.
  • Chinese Vampire: In order to keep him from dying from Feng's attack, Mui kills Shen and places his soul in the Game of Death artifact. The preserves his body and soul as a Jiang Shi zombie summonable by Mui, allowing him to remain by her side as an active combatant even after death.
  • Counter-Attack: A common tactic of his. He leaves clear openings for his opponent to attack during fights, knowing that they'll try and take the easy hit, yet will attack from the wrong direction instead because of his ability. This allows him to counter said attacks easily since he knows what attack they were trying to pull off and can therefore predict what the reverse will be.
  • Curtains Match the Window: He has light blue hair and light blue eyes.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Implied in Chapter 48, where Anno Un's note that Negators are always suffering is accompanied by a panel showing Shen calling out for a companion who has seemingly fallen off a cliff. It's later clarified that said companion is his sister, who fell due to him accidentally using Untruth on her.
  • Dead Person Conversation: Has one with his deceased sister Mei after he's dealt a seemingly fatal blow by Feng, in which she encourages him to live and protect those he cares about the best he can.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: After his sister's death and his subsequent defeat against his old master, Feng, he became a bitter and stone-hearted man, only focused on fighting others and viewing everyone as merely either strong or weak. It was only after joining the Union and later meeting Mui that he began to heal from his past, his time spent with Mui slowly turning him into the jovial, if mischievous, goofball he is at the series start.
  • Dumb Muscle: Downplayed. He's arguably the Union's strongest hand-to-hand fighter, having trained in kung fu since he was young. That said, while not stupid by any means, he's shown to be generally simple minded outside of battle. He certainly thinks this of himself, though, as he believed when he was young that he was too stupid to go to school like his sister.
  • Dying Declaration of Love: While he's dying of his gaping wounds, Shen finally reveals the condition for Untruth activating on an opponent to Mui—that he needs to be fond of them for it to work, and implicitly that her presence in his life allowed him to be deeply appreciative and fond of her as well. Ends up subverted in that he doesn't actually die after that, since he is turned into a Jiangshi.
  • Emergency Transformation: After he's fatally wounded protecting Mui and Fuuko with no other options to save him, he has Mui kill him while she's holding the Game of Death artifact to turn him into a Jiangshi.
  • Eyes Always Shut: A unique variant. He's typically depicted as having at least one eye closed with the other wide open, alternating which is which between panels. According to the Volume 2 extras, he does this because his ability pauses whenever he blinks normally, so his winking method allows him to use his power without a break.
  • Flying on a Cloud: He can do this with the "Kinto'Un Cloud," an artifact in the Union's possession.
  • Friendly Enemy: He's very cordial and polite, even to those he's supposed to be fighting. When he's sent to kill Fuuko by the Union, he stops to chat with her first, asking her questions about herself and going as far as to answer her questions about the Union, much to Void's annoyance. Considering that his power only works on people he's fond of, it makes a lot of sense as to why he tries to be so nice to his foes.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: Peppers his speech with Chinese phrases. After the destruction of UMA Language, he becomes one of a handful of Chinese speakers in the world, much to his sorrow.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: In order to protect Mui and Fuuko, he and Andy step in the way of an attack from Feng and he is impaled clean through his stomach as a result.
  • Logical Weakness: Untruth is a devastating power when used effectively, but doing so requires a lot of quick thinking in order to assess which actions are actually beneficial to reverse. Opponents like Andy, Juiz, Nico, and Feng, who are used to thinking quickly as seasoned veterans, are much more difficult to read and therefore harder to capitalize on.
  • Magic Staff: He carries the "Nyoi-Kinko Staff," an artifact that was uncovered in China. It can expand to extreme lengths, which he uses to attack opponents from afar.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is likely derived from 真, pronounced "shin" in Japanese and "zhen" in Mandarin, the Sino-Japanese word for truth.
  • Monkey King Lite: An arrogant and mischievous martial artist who uses an extending staff, flies around on a magic cloud, and wants to be "the strongest in all creation".
  • No Eye in Magic: One requirement of his power is that he has to have eye contact with his target. He can't use his power on an opponent he can't see.
  • "Not So Different" Remark: During their Dead Person Conversation, Mei notes that Shen became very similar to Feng for a short time after her death, focusing solely on getting stronger and seeing others as opponents to battle, and only changing for the better after meeting Mui.
  • Opposite Day: How Untruth works, forcing anyone affected by it to do the opposite of what they were trying to do.
  • The Power of Love: Untruth only works on targets that Shen is fond of, though this can extend to admiration of his target's strength. Shen only discovered this activation requirement himself after he became fond of Mui and the ability started affecting her.
  • Street Urchin: He and his younger sister, Mei, were this as children, where they struggled to get food, lived in a run down shack, and were harassed by those more well off. Shen even fought in fighting tournaments against full-grown adults to feed them.
  • Tough Love: He subjects Mui to a punishment game whenever he feels she's put herself in danger (such as using too many Artifacts), in which he forces her to insult him using Untruth, which typically ends with both of them in tears.
  • Vague Age: His age is listed as "Secret" in the volume 2 extras.
  • You Remind Me of X: As Mei observes in their Dead Person Conversation, when he first met Mui and her brother, they reminded him of himself and Mei. It's why he couldn't abandon Mui.


Billy Alfred

Power: Unbelievable / Unfair

"Oho, that's a nice li'l number you got there!"

The number 3 Negator of the Union, a sunglasses-wearing man who fights using two revolvers. His ability is Unbelievable, which allows him to ricochet bullets into targets so long as he aims away from them. This is later revealed to be just one of many Negator abilities he's copied with his real power, Unfair.

  • Ability Mixing: In addition to being able to view the world differently due to him being blind at the time giving him a far more powerful range with Unmove, he's shown to be able to combine it with Unchange during his fight with Ruin so that UMA Shadow can't get around it due to completely negating their movement.
  • Ambiguous Situation: While Chapter 32 seemingly confirms him to be Unbelievable, with Tatiana claiming this to be true, later chapters cast doubt on this reveal by showing him use a Power Copying ability. The Cover Page for Chapter 34 reflects this, listing his ability as Un[Investigating]. Eventually, he reveals that his true power is Unfair, which lets him copy the power of any Negator who sees him as a threat, which indicates he was actually copying Unbelievable and pretending it was his ability.
  • Arc Villain: Acts as this for the Unbelievable Arc, where he reveals himself to be the leader of Under and betrays the Union.
  • Back from the Dead: Top breaks his neck and kills him with a powerful kick, but he's able to get back from his fatal injury with out issue. This is later revealed to be due to him copying Undead.
  • Blind Weaponmaster: He's implied and later confirmed to be blind, yet he's capable of astounding feats of marksmanship. It's implied that copying either Undead or Unruin can give him the ability to see, at least temporarily.
  • Blatant Lies: During his confrontation with Juiz, he claims that he never trusted any of the Union and only saw them as "ammo" to defeat God, and were nothing more or less. He says this over a montage of his time with the Union, in which he's clearly enjoying every second and is shown to obviously care for them as well. He also states that his justice doesn't align with the Union's at all, which is again proven false quickly when Juiz's Unjustice has him attacking her instead of himself or his Under comrades. This action is what makes Juiz recognize there's more to Billy's actions than meets the eye, as Billy is incapable of using Unjustice after this fight since Juiz does not view Billy as an enemy anymore.
  • Cool Shades: He sports a pair of black shades that he's always seen wearing, which were given to him by Juiz when he first joined the Union. He drops them after it's revealed he's Under's mole.
    • He re-dons them during the fight with Ruin during which he also explains him motivations for creating Under. This signifies his return to working with the Union in earnest against God, although he's still leading Under.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Implied in Chapter 48, where Anno Un's note that Negators are always suffering is accompanied by a panel showing Billy sitting at a grave in the pouring rain, with several empty bottles of beer scattered around him. Explained in Chapter 152, which reveals he lost his wife and daughter in an accident.
  • Enemy Mine: Teams up with the Union to defeat Spring and this sticks even after their victory as greater threats like Ruin and Seal appear. Naturally given the stakes, they also team up against the literal End of the World as We Know It in the fight against Sun.
  • Evil All Along: Downplayed. Early on, he's presented as a nice, laid back member of the Union, but it's later revealed that he's secretly the leader of Under and has been leaking info to them for quite a while. His ultimate motivation is still the same as the Union's, killing God, but he's willing to sacrifice innocent civilians to do so.
  • Good Hair, Evil Hair: Normally, he wears his hair slicked back. Later on, he lets his hair loose when he is revealed to be the leader of Under.
    • He reverts to his old hairstyle when aiding the Union against Ruin and Seal.
  • Guns Akimbo: Fights with a revolver in each hand.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: He doesn't automatically know how to use the powers he copies, and it's noted that his use of Unstoppable isn't nearly as refined as Top's, who is a trained athlete. This turns out to be the weakness of his ability since because he doesn't have the mindset and understanding of the original users, he can't use the powers to their full potential.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Due to his ability, he's capable of ricocheting bullets dozens of times off mobile walls to hit a target from a blind spot, while also being blind himself.
  • Logical Weakness: The biggest problem with his negation powers is he can't use those abilities to their full potential, since he lacks the respective mindset and understanding needed to do so. Undead, for instance, has a weaker and slower regeneration speed, meaning stuff like drowning and suffocating could still be fatal for him when it wouldn't for Andy. Andy exploits this in their fight during the UMA Spring Arc to take him down by forcing him to deactivate Unchange when he's tossed into a canal.
  • Meaningful Name: His name sounds like "belie," which means to give a false impression of something and/or to contradict/betray. This hints at the nature of Negator ability Unbelievable (which works if he shoots away from his intended target), the fact he's a Union member who's the leader of Under, and his real Negator ability Unfair being able to copy other abilities if the corresponding Negator views him as a threat.
  • The Mole: Chapter 31 reveals he's been one for Under, as he's been informing them about the Union's activities and is actually the leader of the group.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Likely named after "Billy the Kid," an infamous outlaw and gunfighter from the American Old West. If so, it's fitting that the color page for Chapter 152 features him and Fuuko as gunfighters.
  • Not Quite Flight: He uses Unchange to walk on air in later chapters, similar to how Gina used it.
  • Nuke 'em: His suggestion upon receiving the four seasons quests is to just drop nukes on the ones that need to be neutralized. The rest of the Union are totally shocked by this suggestion, with Tatiana noting that doing so would result in thousands of innocents dying. Minutes later, he's outed as Under's spy.
    • He does try to do this in the fight against Spring and would have succeeded if Spring hadn't disarmed the nuke with an artifact.
  • Offstage Villainy: After, his betrayal, he's shown using powers that none of the Union currently have (Unchange after Gina's death) including ones they've never seen before (Unbalance, Undefinition). After the reveal about how his powers work, this means that he would have had to make those negators hate him in some way so he can make use of their powers. However, we have yet to see these people on screen.
  • Parental Substitute: It's implied he became one to Tatiana after rescuing her from the mafia. He's shown to be quite close to her, watching out her well being, feeding her through her barrier, and smiling after Fuuko and Tatiana become friends. He offers for Tatiana to join him when he reveals he's the mole for Under, but Tatiana ultimately doesn't take it, being hurt by his betrayal.
  • Perma-Stubble: He's consistently shown to have a bit of stubble around his chin.
  • Power Copying: He's able to copy other Negation powers and use them himself, such as using Undead to survive a fatal kick to the jaw or using Unstoppable to counter Top's attacks. There appears to be some requirements for him to copy the powers as he's unable to copy Unluck and he can only keep up to six abilities at once. Billy later reveals the requirement to activate his true Negator ability Unfair is to have a Negator view him as a threat. If the target no longer views him as a threat, he can no longer copy that Negator’s ability. Due to the changed circumstances around Unfair's manifestation in the 101st loop, the requirement instead becomes acknowledging the other Negator's strength.
  • Punny Name: Un-Billy-vable.
  • Shout-Out Theme Naming: Billy's wife and daughter, Veronica and Betty, are named for Betty and Veronica from Archie Comics.
  • Sweet Tooth: He's a self-admitted "true lover of sweets," going as far as to create the "Long Cake Bar" that he gives to Tatiana when the first meet.
  • Tricked-Out Shoes: Nico made him a pair of spurs that he can use to define his surroundings via echolocation.
  • Two First Names: Both him and his wife and daughter.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: He wants to rid the world of God's control like the rest of the Union and make it better, but is willing to sacrifice the innocent masses to do so.
  • Won't Get Fooled Again: After the last time he used Unjustice on someone (Tatiana) who still had faith in him, he keeps this in mind when facing others, refusing to use it on Juiz since he knows she still believes in him.
  • Zero-Approval Gambit: His forming Under and betraying the Union was to make the Union members view him as a threat, which is the requirement for him to copy their powers that loop. He sadly notes that even with all he did, he was never able to copy Fuuko's Unluck, because she never viewed him as a bad person even at his worst.



Power: Unfeel

The number 4 Negator of the Union, a young boy whose body is made entirely out of artifacts. His power is Unfeel, which allows him to negate his own feelings.

  • Arm Cannon: He can fire a beam from his elbow by detaching his artificial hand from it, which is powerful enough to instantly kill one of Victor's clones.
  • Cursed with Awesome: All of the Negators are said to have suffered in the leadup to gaining their powers and Phil is included with this. However, being unable to feel allows him to use multiple artifacts at once and even handle Apocalypse when normally one would be assaulted by visions if it grabbed onto him. This on top of all the artifacts he already uses.
  • Emotion Suppression: His power in a nutshell as it allows him to negate his own emotions and feelings. This allows him to safely grab Apocalypse without being overwhelmed by the visions before it can escape.
  • Floating Limbs: His artifact limbs can detach from his body and float around him.
  • Minor Major Character: Despite being the fourth-highest ranked Negator in the Union, he's given very little focus in comparison to his comrades.
  • Oral Fixation: He's often shown sucking his thumb.
  • Punny Name: Un-Phil.
  • Robot Kid: His entire body is made up of artifacts, giving him an Astro Boy-type design.
  • The Stoic: He constantly has the same nonchalant expression no matter the situation and doesn't seem to say anything, which even Victor remarks on. This is implied to be a result of his Negator ability.
  • Stronger Than They Look: He looks like he's just a kid, and barely a 5-year-old one at that. Yet, he's ranked number 4 in the Union, beating out 6 other Negators, all of whom appear to be older than him.
  • The Voiceless: Has yet to utter a single word, and it's unclear if he even can talk.



Power: Untouchable
Click here to see her real body 

"You're not getting away... with hurting someone so special to me. I'll pulverize every last one of you!!"

The number 5 Negator of the Union, a young Russian girl encased in a giant, floating metal orb. Her power is Untouchable, which negates her ability to be touched by creating an impenetrable barrier around her body that nothing can get through.

  • Achilles' Heel: Her Untouchable barrier makes her completely invincible for the most part, with the only possible weak point being the hole that appears when she opens her mouth which allows her to eat. Ruin tries to exploit this to kill her via forcing blood down her mouth and Tatiana only barely avoids it by holding her breath.
  • Blessed with Suck: Untouchable is powerful, but it makes her day-to-day life a nightmare because she can't turn it off. She can't eat without special tools or assistance, and is forced to inhabit her orb in order to keep her power in check.
  • Clothing Appendage: Has a triangular plate bolted to the front of her orb that resembles the ties the other members wear as part of their uniform.
  • Commonality Connection: She bonds with Fuuko over both being Negators with dangerous abilities that make them unable to interact with people normally. Fuuko has to keep a physical distance due to Unluck while Tatiana has to stay inside her mech because she'd risk crushing others with Untouchable. Her backstory reveals she asked Billy to kill her when he rescued her from an auction because there was nothing good about living with an ability that killed her parents, not unlike Fuuko's attempt to kill herself in the first chapter over Unluck.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Has one that's similar to Fuuko's, in that her power caused the death of her parents when it first appeared on her fifth birthday. She ended up getting caught by the mafia while on the run in a daze and put up for auction afterward. The utter despair of killing her parents caused her to ask Billy to kill her when he rescued her.
  • Deadly Force Field: Her power produces an Untouchable barrier from the surface of her hair and skin. While not inherently dangerous, the sheer speed and force at which it can expand can easily injure and kill those who caught up in it, like her parents.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Tatiana is initially very cold toward Andy and Fuuko due to Andy killing Gina, attacking Andy after he first joins the Union and later challenging him to fight over it. She later warms up to the duo, though more to Fuuko than Andy, after Fuuko tells her that she was the one who actually caused Gina's death, apologizes for it, and expresses a desire to make up for the loss and become friends.
  • Dislikes the New Guy: When Fuuko and Andy first joined the Union, Tatiana didn't take this kindly because Andy was responsible for Gina's death, even going as far as trying to attack them. She softens up to them later on, especially Fuuko when she tells her she was responsible as well and apologizes.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Tatiana is left utterly heartbroken at Billy being a mole for Under all along.
  • Expressive Accessory: Her orb will occasionally contort cartoonishly to showcase Tatiana's emotions.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Her room is filled with stuffed animals, and she gives them out as gifts to friends.
  • Godiva Hair: Her power makes it impossible for her to wear clothing, so her long hair is the only thing covering her real body.
  • Handy Helper: It's implied shes one to the blind Billy, as she's shown to assist him in navigating his surroundings in several background shots.
  • Humongous Mecha: The orb she inhabits towers over most of the cast. It's capable of transforming into a more traditional looking mecha as well.
  • Insistent Terminology: She calls Andy "Zombie" as Fuuko did in the first chapter, despite Andy claiming he's not one multiple times.
  • Meaningful Name: In Japanese, her name is pronounced "Tachiana", the first part of which is pronounced similarly to the Japanese word タッチ (Tatchi), meaning touch, a hint toward her power.
  • Oculothorax: Her suit is a huge orb with an eye-like camera on the front. The camera even reflects her emotions.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: The release of her power is capable of wiping out an entire town according to Nico, and she crushes a giant ship in half when she does use it.
  • Power Floats: Because Untouchable negates Tatiana's ability to be touched by anything, including the ground, her barrier causes her to float in the air.
  • Power Incontinence: She can't control the release of her power without her suit as her power is a compulsory activation type. Even in her suit though, it's possible for her to lose control and release her power compulsively, such as when she gets a face full of Andy's wing wong and would have wiped out five floors of the Union's headquarters had Fuuko not calmed her down.
  • Power Limiter: The true purpose of her mech is to act as one for her ability, as it's powerful enough to prompt the Union to evacuate a whole five floors when she threatens to release it in a moment of flustered anger.
  • Required Secondary Powers: Whenever she opens her mouth, a small hole forms in her barrier that allows her to eat.
  • Rocket Punch: She has some of the "retracting cable" variety.
  • Self-Made Orphan: As part of her Dark and Troubled Past, her power caused the death of her parents when it first emerged.
  • Sphere Factor: She uses her orb to move around and battle others, and isn't seen out of it. It's later revealed that the mech isn't meant to protect her, but rather protect other people from her ability.
  • Sweet Tooth: Fond of sweets, and bonded with Billy over them.
  • True Companions: Begins to feel this way toward Fuuko due to the latter girl treating Tatiana like a normal person despite her mecha-suit instead of laughing at or pitying her. Needless to say, she's utterly pissed when she's told Fuuko was injured by Rip and doesn't hesitate to use her ability.
  • Younger Than They Look: Outside her suit, she appears to be younger than Fuuko, supported by her room being filled with cutesy stuffed animals and her embarrassed reaction to seeing Andy's penis.


Yamaoka Haruka — The 13th Isshin

Power: Unbreakable

The number 6 Negator of the Union, a quiet individual that wears samurai armor. Their power is Unbreakable, which negates an item's ability to be broken as long as it is made by them.

  • All There in the Manual: Isshin being Unbreakable was all but explicitly confirmed in a Volume 3 extra page, which also explains how Unbreakable works. Chapter 31 officially confirms them to be Unbreakable.
  • Antiquated Linguistics: When writing out what they want to convey, they notably tend to write in a somewhat formal and antiquated manner. This isn't present when she's actually speaking though.
  • The Big Guy: Physically the largest member of the Union, only challenged by Tatiana in her orb and Void prior to his death, and the strongest in terms of raw muscle.
  • The Blacksmith: Isshin creates their own armor and weapons, such as the katana Andy uses, as the power only works if Isshin makes the item. She's however unable to make armor for everyone in the Union despite past Isshin's being able to mass produce armor for armies due to her insecurities.
  • Blade on a Stick: Wields a large naginata.
  • Cowardly Lion: Billy calls Isshin the biggest coward in the Union, as they're prone to sitting out on most quests by claiming their ability is too valuable to risk losing. When Fuuko's Unluck backfires and causes a massive meteorite to shoot down towards the area during a battle, Isshin immediately shields her with her own armor and blocks the shockwave point-blank by making a barrier of stone.
  • Doting Grandparent: Her grandfather, the previous Unbreakable, doted on her.
  • Family Theme Naming: Her birthname Haruka is the spelling that translates as "the song of spring". According to her, the people in her family have names that include the character for spring, starting with the first Isshin.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Deconstructed; Isshin doesn't think highly of her crafting abilities due to her previous failure to make Unbreakable armor for her father when she first received Unbreakable, resulting in his death, alongside the pressure her family's Unbreakable lineage brings with it. Unfortunately, due to how her power functions, it inherently makes her abilities weaker. She starts getting better with Fuuko's encouragement.
  • The Klutz: Downplayed. While not particularly clumsy, especially when it comes to making things, both times the Union members have been transported to a different area by Move, Isshin's the only one shown failing to stick the landing.
  • Legacy Character: Isshin is the name her family carries as blacksmiths and the Unbreakable ability, the first dating back to the Edo period and the previous before her being her grandfather.
  • Logical Weakness: Anything she makes is Unbreakable, but only so long as Isshin has confidence in her power. When she expresses doubts in her ability, such as with the armor she forged for her father shortly after becoming the new Unbreakable or the stone wall she constructed during her top battle with Andy, her ability wears off quickly, with the former incident resulting in her father's death.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Isshin is actually a name passed on to the Unbreakable Negator. Her actual given name is Haruka.
  • Ridiculously Fast Construction: After the Union roundtable is stolen, Isshin is able to build a temporary replacement out of the shattered remains of Stonehenge in seconds. She later is able to construct a stone wall almost instantaneously when being attacked by Andy during the top battle.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Isshin is assumed to be male throughout the series until Chapter 85 reveals she's actually a woman, much to Fuuko's surprise. It's indicated this wasn't a secret more as a misconception due to Isshin being naturally imposing height-wise, only talking with signs, and not ever removing her mask due to her insecurities. Billy explains in an omake that the veteran members of the Union all knew, but began keeping it a secret when Top joined them.
  • Shrinking Violet: Despite her tall muscular build, Isshin lacks confidence and is a very nervous and quiet young woman.
  • Super Toughness: Isshin is incredibly durable, being able to take Andy's Finger Bullets, which previously blasted a hole clean through Void's head, directly to the face and be completely unfazed. During the battle with Victor, Isshin is shot by a flurry of finger bullets and is, again, completely unfazed. It's implied that this is due to their Unbreakable armor. Fuuko exploits this to make Isshin her top in her battle against Spring because Isshin would be the only other Negator not Andy that wouldn't die.
  • Talking with Signs: Isshin seems to prefer this method of communication, as shown in a Volume 3 extra where Top asks them to explain some of the weapons they've made made, and instead of actually speaking, they write out what they wants to say for Top to read instead. This is one reason Fuuko didn't realize Isshin was a woman until she actually talks.
  • Unbreakable Weapons: Any weapons made by Isshin are this due to their power, such as Andy's katana.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Victor calls them out as this, claiming that Isshin is an amateur in combat and has nothing but brute force behind their attacks. Billy later comments Isshin is cowardly, which is why they purposely avoid being put in combat situations.
  • The Voiceless: Isshin spends their appearances not saying a word. A Volume 3 extra implies that he either can't talk outright or at least prefers Talking with Signs. Chapter 85 indicates the reason being in the latter category since she can talk.
  • Younger Than They Look: Isshin's actually 23, but they're the most physically imposing member of the Union after Void even out of armor.


Top Bull Sparx

Power: Unstoppable

"We're all on the same team. No thanks needed. I don't accept 'em or dish 'em out."

The number 7 Negator of the Union, an energetic Brazillian middle-schooler. His ability is Unstoppable, which doubles his current speed whenever he tries to stop running.

  • Afraid of Their Own Strength: He's capable of running fast enough to circle the globe in seconds, but the trauma of accidentally killing his friends makes him deliberately avoid speeds he can't control. Its only after making friends with Chikara, whose power can stop him with ease, that he's willing to go all out.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Implied in Chapter 48, where Anno Un's note that Negators are always suffering is accompanied by panel showing Top in the hospital crying into the knees of a wheelchair-bound person. Chapter 77 reveals during a race to screen for Olympic candidates, Top tried to throw the match for his friends who needed the opportunity more, only for him to be given Unstoppable at the moment he tried to stop, causing him to crash into them, killing two of them and crippling the surviving one.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Top tried to throw a race for potential Olympic candidates despite having the best chance of winning because he wanted his friends who needed the opportunity more to have the chance instead. God picked the moment he stopped running to give him Unstoppable, resulting in disaster when he crashed into his friends at the speed and force of a car.
  • Powered Armor: His **UN-ST Tachyorizer** armor, which allows him run hundreds of thousands of kilometers per second without hurting himself.
  • Punny Name: Uns-Top-able.
  • Stronger Than They Look: He's around middle-school age but he's shown to be able to piggyback Isshin, who towers over him and wears bulky armor, without any shown difficulty.
  • Super Speed: His power allows him to move very quickly, though he has trouble stopping. If he pushes himself, he's capable of reaching beyond 500,000 km/hour, enough to circle the globe in seconds.
  • Think Nothing of It: As his quote above reveals, this is his reaction to Fuuko thanking him for saving her, claiming he doesn't accept or give thanks out to his teammates.
  • Too Fast to Stop: As his ability name suggests, his power allows him to move incredibly fast with the drawback of not being able to stop without forcing his body into a dramatic change of shape (e.g. breaking a bone). Extras note that what will deactivate Unstoppable would actually change depending on the person's definition of a dramatic change in shape, so another person's definition could more likely end up being fatal. The reason why Top's deactivation requirement manifests the way it does is because of Top's athlete background makes him view a dramatic change in shape as breaking a limb.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: Downplayed. He's still a kid, and thus still acts like one, but he's quite mature for his age, having more experience with the Union and calling Fuuko a brat despite being younger than her. In the past, he recognized he had other chances to make money without needing to run and make his friends suffer, which was why he was willing to throw the race for their sakes.

    Nico Vorgeil 

Nico Vorgeil

Power: Unforgettable

"I didn't fiddle with your body for ten years for nothing, you know... Undead."

The number 8 Negator of the Union, a scientist who experiments on the various things the Union captures.

  • Brain/Computer Interface: He attaches his orbs to holes drilled in his head via cables when he's running calculations or communicating with Union scientists. His assistants have similar holes in their heads.
  • Constantly Curious: Nico's hungry for knowledge to the point he sometimes has to be restrained to stop him from getting stuck in on something, though he usually doesn't let it get in the way of his work for the Union. His best-case scenarios are when figuring things out is part of his Union work, or if the Union doesn't currently need him and he can look into things on his own time.
  • Creepy Shadowed Undereyes: He has a nasty pair of bags under his eyes. His future self, being about fifty years younger, doesn't have them.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Implied in Chapter 48, where Anno Un's note that Negators are always suffering is accompanied by a panel showing Nico breaking down in tears in his bed with an extremely pained expression on his face. His karuta card verses mention he was in love with a 'sleeping princess' in his youth who he cannot forget, subsequently revealed to be his late wife Ichico who died after giving birth to their daughter due to her Negator ability taking a toll on her physical body.
  • Does Not Like Magic: Nico, being a man who wants to figure out the rules of science, hates things that break the rules, and hates that God keeps changing the rules. However, he won't let that stop him investigating new rules.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: He's always barefoot, but considering he's always riding on one of his floating orbs, he doesn't really need shoes anyway.
  • Drone Deployer: He has three small orbs that follow him around. He rides atop one while he uses the other two to attack opponents.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: His official debut happens in chapter 8, but he appears as a silhouette in Chapter 4 when Andy mentions him as the person who experimented on him during his time in captivity.
  • The Engineer: Nico is this for the Union, responsible for tech like the universal-translating neckties and the mechs Void and Tatiana pilot.
  • Everyone Has Standards: His 101st-loop self is a little unnerved by how the Union let him create a device that can erase memories in the past loop.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Nico betrays the Union for the promise of seeing his late wife again.
  • Fusion Dance: Ghost assimilates with Nico during his fight with Andy, granting Nico the ability to embue his dolls of fallen Roundtable members with their souls to increase their fighting capabilities.
  • Hive Mind: He has a Brain/Computer Interface that allows him to connect his mind with that of his non-Negator assistants. He does this so he can quickly ascertain what is now common knowledge to most of the world when a new rule is added.
  • Irony: Before he obtained Unforgettable, Nico admits he had a tendency to forget stuff, especially when he was focused on something.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Can seemingly do this to others in regards to Negator-related information, such as when he made Ryo forget about Chikara. Whether this is due to his power or just some Union tech is unclear. This is later confirmed to be one of his inventions, although it was originally to help him forget other information so he'd keep the memory of his wife Ichico alive.
  • Mad Scientist: Downplayed. He's the Union's engineer, responsible for the various tech they use, such as their universal-translating neckties, so he mostly uses his skills for good. That said, he definitely looks the part, and he does imply that he enjoyed experimenting on Andy when he was held captive.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: He single-handedly neutralized UMA Language offscreen while Andy, Fuuko, and Shen were busy dealing with UMA Spoil.
  • Older Than They Look: He doesn't look too old, but has an adult-aged daughter and is at least in his seventies, being in charge of the experiments done on Andy when he was held captive by the Union fifty years ago. After his Heel–Face Turn and fusion with Ghost, his face progressively becomes more shadowed and haggard, making him look much more in line with his actual age.
    • It also applies to him in the 101st timeline prior to becoming a Negator due to being moved over twenty years forward from Fuuko passing the quests to abuse the penalties.
  • Only Sane Man: In the 101st loop, he’s this to Fuuko’s Union. He’s the only one who questions the decisions Fuuko makes, like making them jump 26 years into the future by passing on quests, and wonders why nobody else is bothered by it.
  • Oral Fixation: Is often shown sticking all of his fingers in his mouth.
  • Parental Neglect: It's indicated he kept his distance from his daughter when she was growing up as a consequence of losing Ichico. As he's dying, he notes his own fear of forgetting Ichico kept him from allowing Mico to fill the gap left behind by her mother, implying he has regrets doing so.
  • Photographic Memory: His Negator ability is Unforgettable, giving the ability to never forget anything the moment he received the ability. Unfortunately for Nico, his ability only manifested when his wife died, ensuring every last detail of the face of his dead lover would remain in his thoughts for the rest of his days. To twist the knife further, his memories from before this point are not preserved, leading to him slowly forgetting his other memories of Ichico when she was alive.
  • Punny Name: Un-Vorgeil-table.
  • Rage Against the Heavens: He's committed to the Union's cause in part because he considers God arbitrarily adding new rules to reality on a whim an insult to the hard work and dedication of scientists everywhere. In the 101st loop, he's completely nonplussed by the idea that he would construct an enormous superweapon just to kill God.
  • Stronger Than They Look: Nico is only ranked 8th in the Union, is quite elderly, and acts as support rather than a combatant in most fights. That said, he was still able to neutralize UMA Language on his own, and Shen, ranked 2nd in the Union, considers him a "seasoned veteran" capable of penetrating Untruth alongside other Union powerhouses like Juiz and Andy.
    • After the battle with Spring he betrays the Union due to Ghost offering the chance to see his wife again. He fights against Andy and is able to hold his own, even demonstrating he can mimic Shen's fighting techniques.
  • Tsundere: His interactions with Ichico in the 101st loop have shades of this. He argues with Ichico about resting because of the toll Unsleep has on her body and ends up crying in relief when Ichico's body is able to properly sleep due to Fuuko using Soul Caliber on her. He then immediately backpedals and insults her when he learns she's watching him via her projected soul out of clear embarrassment, even getting into a fist fight with her until they're interupted.
  • Tragic Keepsake: A section of Union's laboratory is very dear to Nico, as it is where he and his late wife spent time together. He becomes a screaming wreck when Andy destroys his lab, terrified he will lose what little happy memories he has left of his wife once the laboratory is gone.

    Andy and Fuuko 
The number 9 and 10 Negator of the Union respectively, who are also the series' main protagonists.
Their folders can be found here.

    Chikara Shigeno 

Chikara Shigeno

Power: Unmove

"I know I freaked out earlier... but I won't run away anymore."

A jittery Japanese high school student who was kidnapped to be merchandise in a black market auction. After being rescued from the auction by Fuuko and Andy, he agreed to join the Union as its number 11 Negator. His power is Unmove, which allows him to negate the movement of anything he looks at as long as he stays still.

  • Action Survivor: A totally ordinary boy who ended up on a boat with multiple dangerous Negators and no combat training whatsoever, and later ends up joining the Union. It's arguably the same situation as Fuuko, though her power is much more dangerous than his.
  • An Arm and a Leg: After having used his power to stop Sun in their tracks, the God uses his powers to send a projectile to blow his arm off shortly after.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: He swallows his fear and uses his power to protect Fuuko from some mafia guards after she took a knife to the stomach for him.
  • Boring, but Practical: Compared to some other Negator abilities, Unmove simply negates movement of anything he looks at and freezes them in place. But the fact he can freeze anything he looks at and said activation requirements being less situational compared to other similar abilities makes his ability incredibly flexible and useful in multiple situations as pointed out in-universe.
  • Can't Move While Being Watched: Chikara can freeze anyone or anything in place (and can do this with multiple targets at once) as long he has them in his line of sight and stays still himself.
  • Cowardly Lion: He's just a normal kid who's been suddenly thrust into a strange and life-threatening situation, so he's obviously completely freaked out of his mind throughout most of the Unrepair Arc. This prevents him from using his power effectively and causes Rip to write him off as worthless despite his otherwise valuable power. That said, he's able to pull himself together after Fuuko gets injured protecting him from Rip's attack, realizing that his fear has hurt others and managing to calm down enough to properly use his ability, which lets him freeze an entire group of mafia goons and their bullets in place. He's still rather skittish even after two months of training and is so overwhelmed by UMA Burn that he has to leave the room to catch his nerves, though he still comes back to help.
  • Fanboy: An omake reveals he's a Gundam fan.
  • Forgot About His Powers: Justified. Chikara's Unmove could have stopped Rip's thrown scalpel, but his fear prevents him from staying still (the other condition to use his power), which results in Fuuko being injured. He lampshades this after using his ability to stop the mafia goons and give Andy the opening to chase after Rip.
  • Goggles Do Something Unusual: He's shown to have a pair of googles made by Nico in chapter 67 that allow him to focus on just the silhouette of his target, allowing teammates to move even they are within his range of sight.
  • Important Hair Accessory: He has a hair tie with dice decorations that previously belonged to his mother before she passed. He uses it to tie his hair up after resolving to stop being such a coward in order to keep his pesky bangs out of his eyes.
  • Logical Weakness: He can only freeze the parts of something that he can see directly. Even if he's frozen someone, from the waist up, they could still move their legs so long as Chikara doesn't have that part of their body in his sights.
  • Loophole Abuse: His power requires him to stay still to use it, but him being carried by something else that's moving won't count against his activation requirement.
  • Meaningful Name: His full name would be written as チカラ(Chikara) 重野(Shigeno) in kanji. The kanji for move (動) is a combination of the first kanji in his last name and the middle kanji of his first.
  • Must Make Amends: The reason he ultimately agrees to join the Union is this. He believes that by doing so, he can honor his mother's dying wishes, that he "be someone who can help others," and make up for accidentally causing his parents' deaths in the first place.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: He has long bangs that cover most of his face, which is troublesome since his power relies on line of sight to function. When he needs to use his power constantly, he uses his mother's hair tie to pull them out of the way. It's implied he deliberately allowed his hair to be like this to avoid activating his power after it killed his parents.
  • Required Secondary Powers: His "must stay still" limitation has some leeway. Movements like breathing don't count against it, since his power would be effectively useless otherwise, and neither does talking.
  • Self-Made Orphan: In middle school, Chikara accidentally killed his parents when he unknowingly used his power on them in a crosswalk, causing them to get hit by a truck. The incident caused Chikara to resent and hide his power.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In his introduction arc, he's unable to use his power effectively due to being too scared to stay still, resulting in him almost getting shot to death by Creed, and it takes Fuuko getting injured protecting him before he gains his nerves. By the time he encounters Creed again, Chikara has no problem using Unmove on him without trembling, even after having his eyes bruised and being shot in the leg to freeze Creed long enough for Top to disable all his weaponry.
    • He takes another level during the fight against Sun. Despite the literal world ending fight before him, he unflinchingly steps up to the plate to freeze them in place. Unfortunately, Sun immediately renders his new resolve asunder by taking off his arm, but he apologizes he wasn't able to do more. In the end, while still in pain from the loss of his arm, he willingly free falls to where the roundtable is so he can use his ability one last time to stall Sun just enough so Fuuko can loop. Chikara has come a long way.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: His power doesn't work if he moves, which unfortunately includes trembling out of fear. He also can't use his power to, e.g., dodge bullets, because if he tries to get out of the way of the frozen bullets they'll just start moving again and hit him. However, the problems can be worked around by having Chikara being carried by someone (such as Andy or Top) or something (Nico's drones) that can keep him out of harm's way.



Gina Chamber

Power: Unchange

"The greatest change a person will face is... death. So if you want to change so bad... do it on your own time!!"

A playful member of the Union responsible for capturing Andy 50 years ago. Andy and Fuuko are sent to kill her so that they can both join the Union together, which they eventually succeed at doing after a lengthy battle. Her power was Unchange, which allowed her to fix non-living things in place, including air, by negating their ability to be changed.

  • A-Cup Angst: Gina gets mad when her flat chest is brought to attention.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Her death is portrayed in a somber light. As she slowly succumbs to her wounds, both Andy and Fuuko are shown to be upset at how things have turned out, with Fuuko bursting into tears and Andy holding Gina's body until she finally passes. When Fuuko manages to prevent her death and tragic past in the new timeline, she cries Tears of Joy.
  • Arc Villain: The titular antagonist of the Gina Arc.
  • Barrier Warrior: The primary way she uses her power is creating an indestructible spherical barrier of unchanging air that surrounds her at all times. She can also manifest these barriers as large arms to attack opponents with, and use her power to stop the air around an opponent's mouth so they can't breathe. Her power in-universe is noted to be incredibly powerful at its full potential, being the reason why the Union was able to capture Andy in the past and he even notes when facing a soul doll version of her that he only got the better of her because of Fuuko's Unluck. Her 101st loop version is even able to use her beret to create a huge invisible sword able to cleave Autumn in half from one strike, even leaving a huge gorge and splitting the clouds above in the process.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Fitting for the holder of Unchange, Gina gets furious when Andy keeps listing how she changed over the years, insisting she’s forever sixteen.
    • For future Gina, it's seeing Fuuko in trouble, even if she deliberately put herself there.
  • Cute Little Fangs: She has a single fang on the left side of her mouth.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She unconsciously manifested her power for the first time when she confronted the UMA Heat, making the air around her unchangeable, and asphyxiating 40,000 people in the process. It's heavily implied this event contributed to Gina becoming a Death Seeker on top of becoming increasingly disillusioned with the Union's goals.
  • Death Seeker: Andy remembers her as having reservations about killing to stay alive and saying she'd probably be better off dead. He joked she'd be the first on his hit list when he got out, but her excited acceptance was serious. It's much later revealed that when Gina was given Unchange, she unwittingly suffocated 40,000 people to death, which might have been a contributing factor to this.
  • Emotional Powers: Past Gina explains to her future self that Unchange is controlled with the heart, no logic required. Focus on what you want to do, keep it safe in a firm, unwavering heart, and Unchange will change in response.
  • First Friend: Fuuko is this for the 101st loop's Gina, as previously she just kept to herself and painted, and was content with that so long as she had her granny. Gina's desire to protect her friend after learning the secret to Unchange is what allows her to bring out Unchange's full potential.
  • First-Name Basis: Fuuko had been consistently calling both the past and future Ginas "Ms. Gina" since she first met Gina in the 100th loop. After defeating Autumn, the 101st loop's Gina informs Fuuko she doesn't like that and wants her to just call her "Gina", which Fuuko is more than happy to do.
  • Foil: To Tatiana. They're both Russian, both have barrier-related powers, and both had their power manifest without their knowledge, but while Gina is able to control her power, creating barriers from unchanging air, Tatiana has no control over her power, her barrier isolating her from the rest of the world.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: According to her character page in the Volume 2 extras, while she can use her power effectively, she doesn't really understand how it works, claiming that she's "just able to do it somehow." The past version of Gina states Unchange is influenced by her emotions and controlled by Gina's own wishes.
  • Logical Weakness: Her barrier is completely indestructible, but she needs an open hole around her feet so she can move around with it. Her barrier also can't block out light, so any light-based attack, like the laser of her UMA scanning ship, can pass through and harm her.
  • Magical Barefooter: Her character page in the Volume 2 extras reveals that the reason she doesn't wear shoes is because her power is used through her hands and feet, so she leaves both uncovered.
  • Meaningful Name: Gina is likely pulled from the last syllable of the Japanese loanword "change" (チェンジ chenji). Her last name Chamber alludes to the primary way she uses Unchange as a form of invisible barriers.
  • Mercy Kill: Views her attempts to kill Fuuko as this, as she believes Fuuko wouldn't be able to handle working for the Union due to how taxing the job is.
  • Minidress of Power: She wears a plaid miniskirt as part of her Union uniform, which her 101st loop incarnation adapts after defeating Autumn.
  • Mirror Character: After being defeated, she admits that she was a lot like Fuuko before she joined the Union and become disillusioned with the world, believing that she could change the world for the better.
  • Mundane Utility: She uses Unchange to fix her makeup in place and therefore appear younger than 66.
  • The Nicknamer: Calls Andy "Deady Dearest", Fuuko "Lil' Lucky" and Juiz "Jaunty Justy".
  • Not Quite Flight: She can use her powers on air to create a floating staircase that she can then walk on.
  • Older Than She Looks: She's 66, but she looks the same as she did when she was 16. She claims that her power keeps her forever young, but, as Andy points out, her power is an external-targeting one, meaning she's actually just using her power to fix her makeup in place and appear young. She does look her age in some of the past timelines Fuuko sees, although the 101st loop's Gina also ends up being older than she looks due to Fuuko abusing the penalties from passing the quests to move time by twenty-six years, meaning she's physically 16 despite technically being around her forties.
  • Personality Powers:
    • Her powers allow her to fix things in place and keep them from changing, and she herself hates change because she wants to stay young with the person she loves forever. It's played with, however, as she didn't always dislike change, but years working for the Union with the world remaining stagnant made her believe that it was her job to keep things the same.
    • The question on her mind before she got Unchange was "Why do things have to change?", and it seems how she turns out in each loop is informed by what she finds that doesn't change - in the 100th loop she latches onto staying young with Andy, while in the 101st loop, she latches onto Fuuko's declaration about caring for others with an unwavering heart. The 101st version of her combines Fuuko's declaration with her past self's secret to Unchange being to focus on what you wish to achieve to create a new resolve to fight to ensure no one will change anything she loves..
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Downplayed. She has pink hair and is generally a nice person, but she's also a powerful fighter who isn't averse to killing others.
  • Totally Radical: Her dialogue is littered with forced slang as she attempts to make herself seem younger than she is. Her 101st loop counterpart lacks this entirely, seeing as she's actually 16.
  • Vain Sorceress: She uses her power on her makeup to keep it in place and make herself look younger than she truly is. This is something shared across iterations, as the next loop's Gina is excited about jumping into the future still looking young, but the past Gina takes it way too far for her future self, causing her to cringe in embarrassment. That said, the future Gina manages to move past the cringe, deciding to adopt a modified version of her past self's outfit after coming to admire and respect her, although she drops the heavy makeup and platform shoes.
  • Villainous Crush: She has a massive crush on Andy that she developed after first capturing him, drawn to his laid back and playful attitude.
  • Walk on Water: By using her power on water, she can achieve this, which is how she reveals herself as a Union member in chapter 5.
  • Weaponized Headgear: The large beret she wears doubles as a Deadly Disc. As also shown in the 101st loop, it can also channel her power to act like a huge invisible sword, which she uses on UMA Autumn to neutralize it in one strike.
  • What If?: While the Gina we meet in story prior to her death looks young due to her power and use of makeup, some of the other loops that Fuuko sees show her looking her age and even using a cane.
  • Youthful Freckles: When she first got Unchange, as shown with the 101st loop version of her, which distinguishes her from her past counterpart.


Void Volks

Power: Unavoidable

Voiced by: Kenji Nomura (JP)

"Sorry, kid. All the seats are taken!! As long as there are no vacancies... there'll be no additions or changes to the roster. And any Negator who isn't a member is nothing more than a monster... who'll throw the world into chaos... an UMA freak!!"

An aggressive member of the Union who was sent to capture Andy and kill Fuuko alongside Shen, though he ended up dying himself once Andy figured out how his power worked. Said power was Unavoidable, which negated his opponent's ability to move when he entered an attack stance.

  • Accidental Murder: After losing his championship title due to what he perceived as an unfair call, he lost his temper and accidentally killed his opponent with a skull-cracking uppercut.
  • All There in the Manual: His profile page in the Volume 1 extras details a large chunk of his past as a heavyweight boxing champion, which is brought up again when he appears in the 101st loop.
  • Alliterative Name: Void Volks.
  • The Big Guy: Other members of the Union are powerhouses in their particular fields of combat, but Void was their greatest frontline attacker. He looks the part even when out of armor, standing at least a head taller than Andy, who's no slouch in the height department himself, and Isshin, who is the next physically largest member of the Union after him. He's so big his Roundtable chair didn't fit him.
  • Black Dude Dies First: The first member of the Union depicted dying in the 100th loop, with the 101st loop retroactively revealing he was African-American underneath his armour.
  • Blood Knight: Although 101st loop Void might talk about the fairness of boxing, he comments how lucky he was to be able to duke it out with various strong opponents when he used to be a street fighter with a notable grin, and finds Fuuko's challenge fun enough to allow her to challenge him in the ring. It's implied that one reason his past self ended up a Jaded Washout was being barred from boxing - without fighting, he didn't have anything to live for.
  • Boom, Headshot!: Andy kills him by using "Parts Bullet" to blast a finger straight through his head.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: His reaction to being barred from boxing due to his power was to drown himself in alcohol.
  • Fantastically Indifferent: Even though he doesn't really get what's happening, he takes Fuuko and company brainwashing everyone into letting their match go ahead completely in stride, so long as he gets to fight her. Fuuko is taken aback by said reaction.
  • I Owe You My Life: Felt this way toward the Union after they scouted him, feeling that they gave him a reason to live after he lost his boxing career.
  • Irony:
    • As revealed in his match during the 101st loop, Void when he was a boxer was known for his stance where he would take his opponent's attacks head on without dodging to counter them, with his Negator ability meanwhile negating their ability to dodge.
    • The original situation when Unavoidable transferred to him was when he lost his temper over losing his championship title and killed his opponent. In the next loop where his opponent is Fuuko instead, it manifests when he views her as a worthy opponent, and he's startled when Fuuko isn't able to dodge his attack because he doesn't want the match to end that way.
  • Jaded Washout: He was once a heavyweight boxing champion, but was eventually barred from competing due to his power developing and accidentally killing his opponent. He became an alcoholic and drowned himself in booze until he was scouted by the Union.
  • Killing Intent: When Void starts taking Fuuko's challenge seriously, she has a sudden vision of him hitting her square in the face, even though they're not standing that close together, and wonders if that was his bloodlust.
  • Legacy Character: Void wasn't the first Unavoidable; his predecessor was Kenji Yokezu, an old Japanese man who used his version of Unavoidable to make it so lottery prizes wouldn't escape him.
  • Logical Weakness: His power only halts the muscle movements of those affected, meaning that movements that don't involve muscle movements, like Andy's "Parts Bullet" attack, can still move and hit him.
  • Made of Iron: A punch from Fuuko that left Nico unable to eat for three days has absolutely no effect on him.
  • Powered Armor: He wore a large mechanized suit that made him more durable in combat.
  • Punny Name: His power is Una-Void-able.
  • Rags to Riches: Implied. He went from street urchin to heavyweight world champion.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: While he only appears in two chapters before dying, his death opens up a spot in Union that Fuuko and Andy need and eventually fill. The Void that Fuuko actually meets and the audience learns more about is his 101st loop counterpart.
  • Street Urchin: From the brief glimpses we get of his childhood, he looks to have been this before taking up boxing, a kid in worn-out clothes wandering the streets and getting into fights any time of the day or night.
  • Too Qualified to Apply: He was unable to continue boxing after his power appeared, implied to be because it made the fights unfair.
  • Unblockable Attack: All of his attacks are this due to his power, as he negates his opponent's ability to avoid his attacks.
  • Unskilled, but Strong:
    • Implied. His profile mentions that he won his boxing matches by fighting wildly and relying on his raw strength to beat opponents, and he doesn't fully understand the semantics of Unavoidable. This ends up being his downfall, as his lowly understanding of his own ability led to Andy exploiting its weakness and killing him.
    • However, fighting wildly isn't the same thing as fighting blindly; he was able to analyze his opponent's moves in combat and adapt accordingly, though it didn't help against "Parts Bullet".
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He's killed only a chapter after he's introduced, and it's only in the 101st loop he becomes relevant again.

    Ichico Nemuri 

Ichico Nemuri

Power: Unsleep

Nico’s late wife, Mico's mother, and a former member of the Roundtable and the Union’s Laboratory. Her Negator ability is Unsleep, which removes her ability to sleep while also keeping her wide awake and alert at all times.

  • Astral Projection: After confirming Ichico's body can sleep as long as her soul is not residing in it, Fuuko suggests Ichico learn to do astral projection to keep her body from breaking down and indirectly leading to her death like it did for her past counterpart. Ichico can be shown at various points to have her soul projected from her body when idle.
  • Boobs of Steel: Ichico is fairly busty and was a former member of the Roundtable, where being able to fight is a requirement.
  • Dangerous Drowsiness: Zig-Zagged Trope as Unsleep explicitly negates her drowsiness, but the lack of rest takes its toll and causes similar issues. She passes out if she does not make an effort to get some rest, which ended up happening shortly after she got her power, right in the path of an incoming train and causing the death of the passerby that saved her.
  • Death by Childbirth: A variant. While she did die the day her daughter Mico was born, a conversation between her and Nico in her early stages of pregnancy indicate she was already dying from the toll of never sleeping had on her body and childbirth only hastened her death.
  • The Engineer: As smart as Nico, the leader of the science team for the Union. While working together, they often complemented each other in terms of research.
  • Exhausted Eyebags: As a natural consequence of being unable to sleep, she had these. As a birthday gift, Nico used a machine to get her brain to redirect the bags to the top of her eyes so that it resembled eyeshadow.
  • Eyes Out of Sight: Partial example: a hairstyle she had when she was younger had her hair covering her eyes, mainly due to the eyebags she had from her body being unable to sleep.
  • Ironic Name: "Nemuri" means sleep or slumber, and she's physically unable to do so.
  • Loophole Abuse: Negator abilities are tied to the soul rather than the body itself. Therefore, if Ichico's soul is removed from her body, her body is able to properly sleep.
  • Older Than She Looks: Thanks to Fuuko skipping the timeline ahead by taking advantage of Apocalypse's penalties for passing in the 101st loop, Ichico ends up about twenty-odd years younger than her nominal chronological age.
  • Posthumous Character: She's long dead by the present timeline of the story. Averted in the 101st timeline, where she's still alive and is part of the new Union.
  • Required Secondary Powers: Averted. Being unable to sleep would cause a normal human’s mind and body to break down within days but Ichico remains the Union laboratory’s top scientist, tied with Nico, and doesn’t seem to have much health problems from being unable to sleep. That said, Ichico still needs to rest every now and then in other ways or risk collapsing from exhaustion. However, being unable to properly sleep took its toll on her body and she ends up dying shortly after giving birth to Mico. Fuuko tries Soul Caliber on her, confirms Ichico's body can sleep as long as her soul is removed from it, and suggests she can try astral projection as a way to allow her body to rest.
  • The Sleepless: As the holder of Unsleep, Ichico is unable to fall asleep. While it allows her to stay awake and productive far longer than normal people, she must still rest in other ways lest she collapses from exhaustion. The natural consequences of not sleeping concerning her physical body however ultimately caused her death shortly after her daughter was born.
  • Vapor Wear: She notably isn't shown wearing a bra in her Union outfit. It's lampshaded by Nico when they first meet both in the original timeline and the new timeline that she should "cover [her] unslightly mounds of flesh".
  • Your Days Are Numbered: Unsleep making Ichico unable to sleep means her overall lifespan is drastically shortened from the consequences of not sleeping and she was already dying by the time she became pregnant with Mico. In the 101st loop, Ichico is thrilled to be moved 26 years into the future because of this so she can see future technology she wouldn't have lived long enough to see otherwise.

Assorted Staff


Power: Untruth (Current)

"Zhīdàole. (Understood, sir.)"

Shen's subordinate, a Chinese girl who assists him on missions. She isn't a Negator or a member of the Roundtable.

  • Anime Chinese Girl: Fits the bill pretty well, being a cute Chinese woman with odango hair who initially spoke Chinese very often.
  • Bodyguard Crush: After coming to live with Shen, she slowly starts falling in love with him and wishes to make good use of her tools and Artifacts to protect him.
  • The Defroster: She was this for Shen, helping him open up again after Mei's death.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Inherits Shen’s Untruth after his death.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Her eyes are consistently shut, even when possessed by the UMA Clothes. They're only shown open when she's activating Untruth.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: Like her boss, she peppers her speech with Chinese phrases, at least before the world's languages were unified. She starts picking up on it again quickly, though it's implied that Shen's been teaching her.
  • I Owe You My Life: After being freed from Clothes' control, she mentions that Shen saved her life in the past, and is generally very protective of him, implying that she feels this way towards him. It is later revealed that Shen took her in after losing her family to a UMA.
  • Meaningful Name: The character for Mui represents the Chinese plum blossom—something also shared with Shen's sister Mei, but they are pronounced differently in Japanese (for Mei) and Chinese (for Mui). This contributes to her seeming Replacement Goldfish nature for Mei and Shen's protectiveness of her.
  • Mission Control: Acts as this to Shen when he's on missions, by advising him about the possible danger, calling in the support of other Union members, or by relaying needed information.
  • Refused by the Call: She really wants to be a roundtable member like Shen, as she admits to Fuuko, but she isn't a Negator and therefore can only assist during quests as Mission Control. When she's taken over by UMA Clothes, her desired outfit is her regular outfit but with a Union pin. After Shen’s death, however, she becomes the new Untruth Negator, making her desire to become a Union Roundtable member possible.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Feng accuses Shen of Mui being a "Substitute Sister" due to her similar appearance and name to Mei.
  • Truth Serums: Because of her fascination with Apocalypse, she's capable of using Untruth on it, forcing the artifact to disclose information it would normally refuse to say out loud.
  • Vague Age: Her age is listed as "17-18 or so" in the Volume 2 extras, and Shen mentions they met about a decade ago.

    The Scarred Man

A member of the Union that Fuuko and Andy face in the first chapter of the series.

  • Adaptational Heroism: In the one-shot the series is based on, he worked for an organization that wanted revenge on non-Negators and desired to wipe them all out. In the series proper, he works for the Union, who, while somewhat morally gray, work with the goal of protecting everyone on Earth.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: His scarred eye, at the very least, has black sclerae. It's downplayed as he isn't evil, just a bit of a dick.
  • Combat Pragmatist: He isn't above using underhanded tactics to achieve his mission, such as attacking Andy when he wasn't looking and taking Fuuko hostage in order to capture Andy.
  • Cool Sword: He used an Unbreakable Katana during his battle with Andy and Fuuko in the first chapter. Andy stole it from him after his defeat.
  • Eyes Always Shut: His eyes are closed for most of his screentime, though he does open them when he realizes that he's been outsmarted by Fuuko, and is held still by Andy as they're about to take a meteorite to the face.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has a stitched scar going down the right side of his face and straight through his right eye, which makes him look very antagonistic.
  • Starter Villain: As the main antagonist of the series' first chapter, he's the first foe Andy and Fuuko face as a duo.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He has no issue threatening Fuuko's life when she won't cooperate.

    Nico's Assistants
Nico: There're more people but these guys are pretty useful dimwits.

"We're the superior ones when a new rule is added, huh?!"
-Mico, Chapter 20

A group of non-Negator scientists that work for the Union, assisting Nico in his experiments.

  • The Alcoholic: Lang and Poccho are drinking buddies and almost always drunk.
  • All There in the Script: Mico's name was first mentioned in a sketch on the official Undead Unluck Twitter. The rest of their names, alongside their general personality traits and relationships to one another, were first revealed in the volume 3 extras.
  • Brain/Computer Interface: Like their boss, they all have holes drilled into their heads that allow them to connect their brains to their computers.
  • Childhood Friends: Bau and Nico have known each other since they were in school together.
  • Cool Helmet: Zack wears a cool, space marine looking helmet, that was initially given to him by Nico to help him resolve his respiratory disease.
  • Daddy's Girl: Mico really loves her father, though Nico isn't the most receptive. He doesn't like it when she gets clingy in the lab, so she has to hold herself back.
  • Hive Mind: Their Brain/Computer Interface allows them to connect their minds together with Nico, allowing him to quickly figure out what is common knowledge when a new rule is added.
  • Maniac Tongue: Downplayed with Mico, who often has her tongue hanging out. While not a maniac, per se, it's implied that she's a bit loony in the head. She also puts this type of face on her inventions.
  • Number Two: Mico is the next competent scientist after her father, with Bow being the third most competent.
  • Parent-Child Team:
    • Mico, Nico's daughter, works with him as his assistant.
    • There's also Bau and Bow, father and son respectively, who work together as assistants to Nico.
  • The Resenter: Downplayed. Bow likes Mico well enough, and is actually interested in her, but he's also very jealous of her being the No. 2 with little effort so he ends up being pissed off by her more than anything.
  • Shared Family Quirks: Mico's overall quirks and personality have far more in common with her late mother Ichico, who had a similar bubbly disposition yet was a brilliant inventor and scientist in her own right.
  • Shout-Out: Zack's name and helmet are one to the Zaku. An omake indicates that the Gundam franchise also exists in the manga's world, so this may have been deliberately invoked In-Universe.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Mico is essentially a younger female version of her father.
