  • BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger: Garrosh Hellscream breaks into the Novus Orbis Librarium and starts killing people on an average day of revenge. Grimmjow Jeagerjeaques and Compa are among those who want to capture him. Elsewhere, Shinji Ikari is really creepy. Also involved and possibly hunting Garrosh are Cat Girl Hiyori Tamura who wants some food, vampire Rin Tohsaka who is observing Garrosh and mocking everyone else, cyborg Lu Bu who is trying to arrest Garrosh for his group (not Grimmjow's), buxom doctor Kasumi who is trying to cure Shinji, loudmouthed Ninja The Invincible Kanetsugu Naoe who not only seeks Garrosh's bounty but also tries to impress Kasumi, young prodigy Rukia Kuchiki who's also trying to get the bounty on Garrosh, and finally the iron knight who turns out to be Grimmjow's future self, Richter Belmont.
    • BlazBlue: Continuum Shift: Turns out everything was planned by one nasty Cid Raines (or, in Extend, Gin Ichimaru) who joins right in the new cast along with Michelle Chang, Compa's friend, and later the roster is joined by Compa's other friend, squirrel girl Amy Rose, Rin's werewolf butler Zhang Jiao a Magical Girl with Split Personality issue named Tohru Honda, and eventually, Cid's equally monstrous buddy and Rukia's father Guile. Cid turns Compa into a world-destroying Homura Akemi, but was stopped by Garrosh letting his arm explode, but the scales shook: while Grimmjow turns to the good side, Cid and Guile went so far as brainwashing Michelle to stick with them and forced Kasumi to join them if she wants a shot to save Shinji (whom they detained) and reveals that they're being "led" by Garrosh and Grimmjow's sister Pascal. The next stage would be set on Kanetsugu's (who has been told by Tohru that he has hidden powers) hometown...

Tailing behind Litchi was her half-sister and would-be executioner Sakura Kasugano and super ninja Nova (who had his own game beforehand).
    • 2: A new tournament is hosted by the daughter of the previous owner (also opera singer), Rider. While looking for the missing Litchi, Nova encounters a strange karateka known as Patroklos Alexander, who in the end is revealed to be an amnesiac Alucard, while destroying a giant tengu monster. It's later revealed that Litchi has been cloned.
    • 3: There's another tournament held by the shady Ant-Man, which introduced drunken master Warrior of Light and Sherry Birkin, another karateka who took care of Alucard and has been looking for 'Patroklos'. It also involves Ant-Man's right-hand woman Lust, a psycho assassin who turned out to have killed Rider's mother. The final boss is Sakura's possessed father and she tearfully killed him. Rider officially won the tournament and...
    • 4: She held another tournament, also introducing Jade's student as he retired, Forest Law, Viola, Rider's half sister and a Geisha, Slippy Toad, a United Nations Space Command SPARTAN-11, and Maya Amano, a luchadora who's also a scientist who works for Ant-Man. At the climax; Nova, Alucard and Sakura assaulted the enemy hidden base containing a Litchi-cloning factory, while Litchi dealt with her clone, but the whole base fell apart when Rider blew everything up to atone for their sins and was willing to die... until Vector saved her, and he ends up being designated as the winner.
    • 5: Two years passed, and Rider announced that she's back and holding another tournament to promote that her corporate is no longer corrupt now that she fired Ant-Man and his gang. Newcomers include an MMA fighter who is a fan of Scorpion, who now retired from wrestling and working on an oil rig with another newcomer Asura, who turns out to be the amnesiac son of Ant-Man that ends up having no intention of being good. The official winner for this tournament is Kenshiro. But he's pissed because he didn't get to fight Asura who handed him his butt out of tournament. Later editions add Kodachi Kuno, Sailor Mercury, Mako Mankanshoku, the tengu monster's daughter, Rei Ayanami, and Izumo Kamiki.
