Characters / Virgo Vs The Zodiac

Go To

Main Party


Virgo, the Holy Queen

  • Anti-Hero: In the Cardinal Route, she is a mild example. While she is responsible for many deaths, those were in self-defense, and ultimately she created a better world for everyone by destroying the twelve Zodiac Crowns and therefore hierarchy. She is also willing to pay for the damage that she caused during her quest.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: In the Fixed Route, where she is a straight example of a Villain Protagonist, she manages to achieve her goal of bringing back the Golden Age. However, it is a Pyrrhic Victory, since she loses her friends and lover in the process.
  • Black-and-White Insanity
  • Catchphrase Insult: "Heretic."
  • The Dreaded
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: Virgo is the only Zodiac who has the title of "Queen," and as evidenced by the fact she is often referred to as "Dreadful Queen" by "heretics," she is not exactly well-liked. Nor is she as pure as she believes she is. The denizens of the Holy Asylum see her as The High Queen, though.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Inverted.
  • Incompatible Orientation: In the receiving end of this, as unfortunately for Spica, Virgo is a lesbian.
  • Knight Templar
  • Leitmotif: "The Holy Queen."
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Zig-zagged. She's apparently jacked in-universe (even if her character art presents her as very thin) and is a competent fighter, but the other members of her party are strong too despite their lack of muscles, and so are the rest of the Zodiacs (some of which are technically stronger than her).
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: It would be a good idea to avoid any individual known as "Dreadful Queen."
  • Neat Freak
  • The Perfectionist: To a villainous degree.
  • Pure Is Not Good: So much.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: She gives one to Cancer, but its effect is lost on her.
    Virgo: Will you, really? Someone like you... Could just drop dead and nobody would notice. Don't you think so?
    Cancer: What you mean... someone like me?
    Virgo: What do I mean by that...? I'll tell you what I mean. Although you breathe and you are living, well... I wonder what hope there could possibly be. You're someone... Who is so spineless that people can treat them whatever they want! Being used by Capricorn, having all of your profits go to her corporation... And still crawling here like this, licking her boot to gain some approval from that filthy, greedy Zodiac. You call this revenge, really? You are merely a cursed child... Cursed to live forever, without your own children for your own realm. No organic denizens.
    Cancer: (Stunned Silence)
    Virgo: Hah... And you're so alone you even spy on the other Zodiacs... For what, the company? Your existence isn't even useful! You just keep living your useless life, since you were thrown out in the world without any kind of blessings. If you were more courageous, I expect you would have disappeared a long time ago. You're pitiful. Did you know that? I pity you so much that I feel the need to do what you can't do yourself. I'll make you disappear.
  • Red Baron: Virgo, the Holy Queen. Queen of Purity and Dreadful Queen also qualify.
  • Sanity Slippage: Virgo goes off the deep end in the Fixed Route, becoming a violent, easily angered, self-important mess who is willing to sacrifice Ginger and kill her own companions if they don't follow her orders. She even refuses to believe Pisces is dead, going around the galaxy in a vain attempt to find her.
  • Tsundere: Virgo is this towards her girlfriend Pisces, and even her friends Algol and Spica. This is acknowledged in-universe, with Spica saying Virgo is a Tsundere when he is properly introduced, and Algol teasing Virgo about it.
  • Villain Protagonist: Subverted in the Cardinal Route, where she is at worst a mild Anti-Hero. Played straight in the Fixed Route.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Her goal is to bring back the Golden Age, an era of peace, symmetry and balance. But that doesn't justify all of the horrible things she does, and it's not even made clear if bringing back the Golden Age would actually be a good thing.


Spica, the Royal Servant

  • The Fettered: Spica's insistence of only participating in honorable combat never turns into Honor Before Reason. No wonder he turns against Virgo in the Fixed Route.
  • Hero Antagonist: Along with Algol in the Fixed Route.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Seems to be into Virgo, but she doesn't even like him to begin with and is already dating Pisces. It doesn't matter too much, since later on, he goes for Algol instead. And Algol apparently likes him back.
  • Leitmotif: "The Royal Servant." And "Supernova," which is shared with Algol.
  • Nice Guy: Especially when compared to Virgo and Algol. See Token Good Teammate below.
  • The One Guy: The only male character in the main party.
  • Token Good Teammate: Virgo is an obsessive Villain Protagonist and Algol is a remorseless killer out for revenge. By constrast, Spica is a nice and honourable guy.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: In the Fixed Route, Spica tells Virgo that he doesn't recognize her anymore.
    Spica: I followed your cause because I believed in you. But now... You don't seem like the Holy Queen I once knew. The Queen who created your Realm and me. Your voice has changed, My Queen, and I don't find myself compelled to follow it any longer.

    Spica (after Virgo kills Algol): You... You killed her... You cannot be the one who created me. You cannot be my Queen! Spare me not, Holy Queen. I will fight you to my dying breath!


Algol, the Demon Star

  • Beware the Silly Ones
  • Cool Mask: It sure makes her look cooler. It's also important because if she doesn't wear it, whoever looks to her face will turn to stone.
  • Cute Witch: In a nod to this, her cuteness stat is naturally higher than Virgo's and Spica's.
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: Even though they didn't win, you have to admit that it's incredibly awesome how Algol and Spica turned against Virgo in the Fixed Route, calling her insane and telling her just how much of a horrible person she is.
    Algol (after Virgo kills Spica): By the damned rulers, you really killed him... You think you deserve the crown, Virgo? You think you deserve the Golden Age? May my spells curse you for eternity... That's what you REALLY deserve!
  • Everyone Has Standards: In the Fixed Route, Algol is disgusted by Virgo's willingness to sacrifice Ginger to get the Golden Crown, rightfully considering her to be insane. When Virgo does nothing to help her own case, she turns against her, along with Spica.
  • Freudian Excuse: Became the way she is today after Perseus betrayed her trust and killed Medusa, her mother. She admits she used to be innocent back then, but hasn't felt anything since.
  • The Gadfly: Yup. Particularly notable is when she teases Virgo about her Tsundere tendencies.
  • Hero Antagonist: She turns against Virgo, along with Spica, in the Fixed Route.
  • I Have Many Names: Foul Star, Demon Star, Masked Lady, Masked One and many other nice names.
  • Lack of Empathy: She outright admits that she doesn't care about the stars that she's killed.
    Algol: Awwwwwwwwwww man, that's adorable! I think I'm feeling feelings! I'm not sure if I like them.
    • That being said, Algol is not nearly as bad as she seems to be at surface level. She actually values Virgo and Spica as her friends, and she'll fight anyone who is willing to sell out a friend, as shown in the Fixed Route.
  • Leitmotif: Although there isn't one just for Algol, there is "Supernova," which she shares with Spica.
  • Meaningful Name: Algol is the name of a star that's colloquially known as the Demon Star, and it is associated with violence across a wide variety of cultures. Although Algol is not located in the constellation of Taurus, it is right next to it, hence why she is a Tauresean in the game. Its actual location in the sky, however? The constellation of Perseus.
  • Nice Hat
  • Oblivious to Love: She is unaware of Spica's feelings for her, seeing him as a friend instead. She finds out, and apparently reciprocates, in the Starcrossed Ending.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: What Algol wants to do, ultimately. She wants to bring back Perseus, the murderer of her mother, just so that she can kill him.
  • Revenge: Algol's motivation. Perseus used her to get closer to her mother Medusa, wanting the fame that would come with Medusa's head. Perseus did manage to kill Medusa, but Algol caught him in the act, immediately removing her mask and turning him to stone in retaliation. However, Algol soon came to believe that petrification was too merciful of a fate for Perseus, so she started gathering Star Cores to remove the curse she had put on him, all in the hopes of killing him with her own hands.
  • Unscrupulous Hero: Despite being a murderer who feels no guilt for her actions, Algol is really not that bad, helping Virgo even after her own quest is finished. In fact, she actually turns against Virgo in the Fixed Route. Maybe Pisces' decision to free Algol from the Astrological Prison wasn't so wrong, after all.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: According to herself, she used to be much more innocent. Perseus changed this, though she's still not all that bad underneath.

The Zodiac

    In General 

The Zodiac


Capricorn, the Time Keeper

  • Ambition Is Evil: Capricorn is a cardinal sign, and those are associated with ambition. However, she takes it too far, turning her realm into a rigid work environment and generally not caring about anything other than profit.
  • Animal Motifs: Goats. Almost all of the denizens in her realm are goats (or lambs) and the horns in her crown look like those of a goat's.
  • Bad Boss: Doesn't seem to care about the Manifesto's demands of better work conditions.
  • Capitalism Is Bad: The system within her realm is called "Capritalism" and is defined by overworking her employees and employing children, among other things, to the extent that a rebellion is taking place when Virgo arrives to take her crown. Capricorn herself is a cold-hearted woman motivated by greed, who Virgo calls out for only caring about her own daughter's life for logistical reasons.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Since Capricorn is an earth sign.
  • Emotionless Girl
  • Flower Motifs: Has a lotus in her eye. Which is revealed in the Cardinal Route to be a virus that was draining her health away day by day. Pisces helped her remove the virus from the flower, and to repay this act of kindness, Capricorn later informs Virgo and her friends to leave the Seamitery Lighthouse before it's set on fire, helps Virgo defeat the viruses and subdue Pisces, and tells her how to acquire a cure.
  • Greed: Doesn't care about anything other than profit.
  • Iron Lady
  • Katanas Are Just Better: She fights with a katana that has a life of its own.
  • Kimono Is Traditional: Wears a purple one, befitting her nature as a cardinal sign.
  • Lady of War: Capricorn fights rather gracefully, and she stays in the proper sitting position during the entire battle. Sure enough, she is often referred to as "Lady Capricorn."
  • Leitmotif: "The Time Keeper," a pretty rocking theme that makes the fight against her all the more awesome. Additionally, "Gateways" is played when Virgo is in her presence, and it sounds pretty imposing, fitting her serious, no-nonsense demeanor.
  • A Mother to Her Men: Some of the salarygoats admire her. Others... not so much.
  • No-Sell: In the later half of the battle, the saboteurs are unable to deal damage to her with their cherry bombs. In contrast, she kills both of them in one hit.
  • Not So Stoic: She is enraged by the idea of bowing down to the rulers once more. Also, after she is defeated, she expresses sadness.
    Capricorn: I feel sadness, Virgo, Queen of Purity. But this lotus dries my tears.
  • Pet the Dog: In the Cardinal Route, Capricorn will apologize for misjudging Virgo after discovering that she wasn't responsible for Deneb Algedi's murder. Furthermore, she also tells Virgo and everyone else that somebody intends to set the Seamitery Lighthouse on fire so it is best to evacuate it, helps Virgo defeat the viruses and informs her of a method to cure Pisces. This is despite the fact that Virgo wrecked her company and took her crown.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: Before she kills both of the saboteurs in a single attack:
    Capricorn: According to my agenda, you two don't have an appointment scheduled.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Not that it makes her more sympathetic.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Which she hasn't cut in 821 years.
  • Red Baron: Capricorn, the Time Keeper.
  • Schedule Fanatic
  • Starter Villain: She is the first Zodiac that Virgo goes after.
  • The Stoic: Usually calm, cool and collected.
  • Time-Limit Boss: If Virgo doesn't defeat her in ten minutes, her meeting with Capricorn will end. Furthermore, during the later half of the fight, Capricorn speeds up time, thus rigging the battle in her favor.
  • Time Master: Capricorn lives up to her title by being able to strike faster than time, as well as being able to speed it up. She is also a Time-Limit Boss, as stated above.
  • Unable to Cry: Because of the lotus in her eye.
  • Western Zodiac: Like the sign she personifies, she is cold, ambitious and hard-working. However, she's a villainous take on the concept. In addition, she is a cardinal sign with earth powers who used to be ruled over by Saturn, and is associated with goats.
  • Worf Had the Flu: While she's not an easy boss by any means, she's much stronger when she helps you fight against the corrupted Pisces and the viruses in the Cardinal Route. This is because the lotus in her eye had a virus in it that drained her energy, and by the time she fights by your side, Pisces has already removed this virus for her.
  • Workaholic


Pisces, the Redeemer


Scorpio, the Phoenix


Sagittarius, the Philosopher

  • Animal Motifs: Horses/centaurs. Some of the denizens of the Sagittrain are centaurs, and she's into Chiron, who is a centaur. Also, moths.
  • Anime Hair: There are wings on her hair.
  • Archer Archetype: Sagittarius is an inversion. Instead of being cold and distant, she is friendly and cheerful, but no less effective with her bow.
  • Badass Adorable
  • Cute Little Fangs
  • Flunky Boss: Sagittarius fights along with her UFO friends. But this is only the case during the first battle against her.
  • Genki Girl: Typically lighthearted.
  • Leitmotif: "The Fire Moth."
  • Nice Girl: Sagittarius is nice, silly and generally likeable. She only fights with Virgo because she believes Virgo's objective is to bring back the rulers' strict government, and as she values freedom above all else, she cannot allow that.
  • The Philosopher: It's her title, and though she is far from a typical portrayal of one, she often talks about friendship, destiny and freedom.
  • Playing with Fire: Which is reflected in one of her nicknames, The Fire Moth. It makes sense, since Sagittarius is a fire sign.
  • Pungeon Master: Much to Virgo's dismay.
  • Recurring Boss: Sagittarius is the only Zodiac that's fought twice in every route.
  • Red Baron: Sagittarius, the Philosopher. Also, The Fire Moth.
  • Western Zodiac: Like the sign she represents, Sagittarius is wise and freedom-loving. In addition, she is a mutable sign belonging to the element of fire and associated with centaurs, and she even fights with a bow.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Tells this to Virgo after she is defeated for the second time, as she and Virgo used to associate, with Sagittarius even providing useful advice regarding Pisces, her sister. Virgo herself has trouble remembering when her relationship with Sagittarius fell apart.


Taurus, the Sleepwalker

  • Alas, Poor Villain: "Villain" is debatable, but her death is rather touching and Virgo clearly feels bad about it, even long after it happens.
  • A Load of Bull
  • Animal Motifs: Bulls. Not only are those who live at The Sacred Forest usually bulls or cows, but the horns in her head ressemble those of a bull's and her attacks include charging at Virgo.
  • Berserk Button: Okay, "berserk" might be an exaggeration, but if you choose to be merciful after defeating her, she'll be offended by how you hold no respect for the duel, and will call you a coward before fighting you again.
  • Big Eater
  • Devoted to You: Scorpio is head over heels for her. Which is why if you choose to kill Taurus, she will retaliate.
  • Dismotivation: She's so stubborn about leaving her realm as it is that you have to fight her to change her mind.
  • Duel Boss: Virgo fights her alone. Algol and Spica fight Scorpio instead.
  • Fatal Flaw: Her stubborness, which she acknowledges shortly before her death.
  • Hikikomori: Hasn't left the treehouse for a very long time.
  • Idle Rich: Despite being the ruler of The Sacred Forest, she prefers to sleep and eat over most other things, including doing anything for her realm. She makes no effort to change The Sacred Forest's harmful traditions of sacrifice and idolatry towards her, to the point that Virgo's intervention is necessary for any change at all to happen.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Her Weapon of Choice is a bell.
  • Killed Off for Real: If you choose to take mercy on her after winning the fight against her, it'll lead to another battle, this time to the death. Killing Taurus results in her realm being destroyed too, since it is linked to her.
  • Last Words: "I shall close my eyes for one last dream."
  • Leitmotif: "Sleepwalking," an energetic and cool remix of "The Sacred Forest." Furthermore, when Virgo is in her presence, "The Occult" plays, and like "Gateways" for Capricorn, it helps in making her more threatening.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: "Let us dream together, Virgo!" Also, "You hold no respect for our duel. I shall end this myself."
  • Serial Romeo: Possibly as a reference to Taurus being considered a sensual sign, she is defined by her relationship with Scorpio and is known to have a history with her priestess Aldebaran, the brightest star in the constellation of Taurus. The other Zodiacs tend to have a single love interest.
  • Sleepyhead: Hence her title. There are few things she likes to do more than sleeping.
  • Sorry That I'm Dying: As she dies, she apologizes to Scorpio for being unable to keep her promise.


Red Hot Chili Aries


Cancer, the Beholder


Aquarius, the Untied


Libra, the Just

  • Actual Pacifist: She stresses the importance of being diplomatic, since violence cannot solve everything.
  • Blind Justice
  • Disability Superpower: Downplayed. Libra is blind but has an enhanced sense of hearing.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: Libra gives up her crown without a fight. She was never the strongest among the Zodiacs, so she knew she would die if she tried to fight Virgo, considering how strong she has become by the time the two meet in person.
  • Leitmotif: "Apex Judge."
  • To Be Lawful or Good: Libra's statement that she's bound to the law, no matter whose law it is, suggests her answer to the dilemma is to remain lawful.
  • The Unfought: Since she knew she wouldn't stand a chance.


Tzarina Leo

  • Animal Motifs: Lions. She looks like a lion, is referred to as the "lioness" sometimes, and her people are lions.
  • Flunky Boss: Leo fights along two Cleopawtra enemies who are able to heal her hearts.
  • Graceful Loser: She congratulates Virgo's efforts after she is defeated by her.
  • It's All About Me
  • King of Beasts: Though only in her own realm.
  • Large Ham: Exclaims some of her sentences, frequently does the Noblewoman's Laugh, and speaks in an incredibly dramatic, grandiose manner.
  • Leitmotif: "Tzardom of the Sun."
  • Narcissist: Considers herself to be the greatest world wonder of all time, and believes her servants will never leave her since they love her so much (though the last one is probably true).
    Leo: ”And now, for the highlight of the show! Me!”
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: Implied, with the way her laugh is written, as well as the fact that she's haughty and stuck-up.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Leo thinks Virgo is a mere insect she can crush in the blink of an eye. She's wrong, and ends up losing her crown because of it.


Gemini, the Doppelganger


How well does it match the trope?
