Fan Nickname / Epic Seven

Go To

Numerous fan nicknames have been made by the Epic Seven community to help in distinguishing certain characters, items and combinations:

  • The game itself has been called "Anime Summoners War" or "Summoners War 2.0" because many of those who played Summoners War: Sky Arena saw a lot of similar contents and gameplay mechanics that Epic Seven seem to have copied from SW, but improving on some features and having an anime artstyle.

  • "Tamaseria" - For the Tamarinne + Iseria combo. A Portmanteau of a rather Game-Breaker duo since you can have the former's team-wide buffs as early as turn one thanks to the latter's full Cooldown Reset mechanic.
  • Light and Dark heroes are often just referred to as "Moonlight Heroes" or "ML Heroes". In certain cases, it goes along with prefixing "ML" to the original's name to denote their Alternate Self counterpart, like "ML Tenebria" for Spectre Tenebria. Others are more of a shorthand way to refer to the Light and Dark units, mostly by making an acronym out of the first word:
    • "A. Cidd", "A. Cartuja", "A. Coli" for the Assassin units of Cidd, Cartuja and Coli. Furthermore, the latter two also get names of "Asscart" and "Ass Coli" respectively.
    • "S. Rose" for Shadow Rose, "C. Armin" for Crimson Armin, "S. Tenebria" for Spectre Tenebria, "W. Silk" for Wanderer Silk, "F. Maya" for Fighter Maya, "F. Ceci" for Fallen Cecilia... That's too long to list, but you get the gist.
    • "Spez" - A Portmanteau nickname for Specimen Sez
  • "Chocolate Silk" for Wanderer Silk, since she is an Alternate Self of Silk but now a Dark-Skinned Blonde. Others would go on to replace a single letter to give her the fan nickname of "Chocolate Milk" instead.

  • Charles would often be called "Mr. Pringles" thanks to his cool mustache looking like the potato snack brand's mascot.
  • Khawazu gets the humorous connection and a suspiciously-similar overall appearance to a certain shirtless macho who also wears a red bandanna. Therefore, fans call him "Ricardo Milos".
  • Well of course, since Epic Seven has some Friendly Fandoms who also play other gacha games, there tends to be unique nicknames that such shared playerbases come up with regarding characters who look like a lot from a character of the other titles. However, these names are quite niche since they are limited to those who play E7 with the other games:
    • "Red Charlotta" for Charlotte - Similar-sounding names aside (which appear to be the most obvious hint), Epic Seven's Charlotte looks like a red-themed Palette Swap or expy of Granblue Fantasy's Charlotta (who is commonly depicted in blue). Both are also short, stout blonde knight girls who wield a giant BFS (Charlotte has 2 swords, Charlotta has a sword-and-shield combo), both have quite towering crowns and are commonly shown having child-like facial expressions.
    • "White Shuten-doji" for Yufine since the two share a similar anime depiction of a horned oni, it's just that Yufine has a white hair compared to Shuten's black.

  • The Phantasmas are just easily called "Doggos" since they look like fantasy dogs with spiked fur.
  • MolaGoras are sometimes called "Ginseng" since they look like one.
  • Characters would often be categorized with unique fan terms other than the simple gamplay roles of tank, DPS, supports and healers to help in distinguishing their unique playstyles, namely:
    • "Cleavers" for those who rely on Area of Effect attacks that can clear waves in the fastest way possible. Most probably coined after Vildred being a common reroll target for beginners and him wielding a katana.
    • "Dog Walkers" for Cleavers who can carry the entire four-slot team on their own, with the other three party slots being the Phantasmas or fodder units that you want to be Level Grinding. The aforementioned Vildred gets commoly labeled as one since his 3 skills are all AoE attacks, make him your strongest DPS and he can farm the stage for your other 3 fodders by himself.
    • "Strippers" for those who strip off or dispel the opponents' buffs.
    • "Baits" for PVP units whose roles are to take advantage of the Artificial Stupidity that comes when the AI takes over the opponent team (Because the AI-controlled party prioritizes the Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors mechanics over the rest). For example - You don't want Tamarinne to die? Bring in a Fire-elemental unit with a preferable Counter Set like Ken so that the enemy AI's water unit will be fooled (for most of the time) to choose targetting between two Fire Units instead of just focusing on one. Likewise, the "bait" is mostly the tankiest or most durable unit in the team, with a Counter/Lifesteal set so that they can retailiate hard or survive longer respectively.
  • Lilibet upon release, had become a constant source of punny names and joke Portmanteaus such as "Lolibet", "Lil' butt", "Lolibutt", "Lilibutt". "Lolibet" amongst many other memes-turned-nicknames.
  • Montmorancy's long first name gets shorted to "Momo".
  • Arbiter Vildred has the nickname of "Arby".
  • Fans of Tenebria like to give her the Affectionate Nickname of "Tenebae".
  • Then there are characters that are simply given shorthand nicknames:
    • Angelica - "Ange"
    • Sage Baal and Sezan - "Baal"
    • Aramintha - "Ara"
  • Characters may be labeled using acronyms as well, especially the alternate versions with long written-out names:
    • Blood Blade Karin - BBK
    • Seaside Bellona - SSB
    • Shooting Star Achates - SSA
  • Even the Artifacts themselves also have nicknames:
    • "R&L" - Rhianna and Luciella
    • "DDJ" - Daydream Joker
    • "Tonfa" - Exorcist's Tonfa
    • "Portrait" - Portrait of the Saviors
    • "Rosa" - Rosa Hargana
  • "Axe God" - Chaos Sect Axe, the Specialty Change version of Church of Ilryos Axe. Named so because in his Specialty Change story, his path to become Chaos Sect Axe began after he received encouraging words from the God of Chaos.

How well does it match the trope?
