Debut: Chapter 2
A gargantuan female entity larger than any known planet, and the rumored parent of the universe, worshiped by space adventurers as the Goddess of the Cosmos. Because she exists outside the Sakura Cosmos, very few believe she is actually real, and those who do always come back empty-handed if they survive the voyage to find her.
- The Archmage: Xiaomei refers to her as "the Great Sorceress" whose powers are capable of creating all life in the universe and granting any wish.
- Eyes Always Shut: Her appearances in the manga and official artwork depict her with her eyes shut.
- Giant Woman: Exaggerated to one of its most logical extremes; she is supposedly larger than a planet, making the dragon that dwarfs the Aqua Wing look like a firefly in comparison.note
- Green-Skinned Space Babe: She has an incredibly alluring appearance on top of having a blue- and white-striped face.
- Make a Wish: Xiaomei, Mother has the ability to grant anyone who reaches her their wishes, no matter what they are. Xiaomei received her own oracle powers from her, for starters.
- The Maker: According to Xiaomei, Mother is the creator of the known universe.
- Meaningful Name: Her name as "Mother" has two meanings: one is that she is rumored to rebirth anyone who manages to find her; and the other is that she is the "parent of the universe".
- Mysterious Watcher: She somehow knows what's going on in the universe, and closely observes Shiki's adventure.
- Physical God: She is viewed as some kind of space goddess by those who know of her.
- Rapunzel Hair: Her big, flowing hair is at least as long as her body. Given her size, that's enough hair to make up an entire nebula.
- Reclining Reigner: Whatever her alignment or role in the universe is, she can be seen lounging casually on a throne of planetoids.
- Sensual Spandex: She appears to be wearing some manner of skintight spandex that leaves very little of her body to the imagination. Given that its color matches her skin, it's hard to tell where the exposed skin ends and the outfit begins.
- Shrouded in Myth: No one knows who she is, how she was born, or why she exists. Given what little anybody knows of her beyond what she looks like, many doubt she exists and tend to disbelieve anyone claims to have met her. Even the omniscient Xiaomei, one of the few people who's met her and can confirm her existence, had most other knowledge of Mother erased and is forbidden to know where she can be found.
- Sufficiently Advanced Alien: Going by Xiaomei's description of her, Mother is not truly a goddess, but an alien sorceress with power indistinguishable from one.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Aquamarine hair, which adds to her otherworldly appearance.
Debut: Chapter 11
A type of space monster that passes through the universe and devours the "time" of planets, rewinding them to an earlier state and leaving alternate histories in their place.
- Beast of the Apocalypse: Any world caught in a Chronophage's path will suffer a planetary level Class Z, and nothing can stop it. It's indicated that the only way to save oneself from this creature is to get out of its way.
- Diabolus ex Machina: One Chronophage appears during the Guilst arc while the Edens Zero crew is in the middle of rescuing Sister, leading to a harrowing escape scene. This creature's actions also unleash Drakken Joe into the universe when he's forced to escape the planet as well.
- Dub Name Change: The Chronophage is known as a Tokihami in Japanese, which roughly means "time eater" in much the same way as its English name.
- Energy Beings: This creature's body has no physical mass, evidenced by the way it swallows Guilst whole and moves along while the planet remains in the same spot.
- Eldritch Abomination: Their nature and abilities are completely alien. An image of one feeding on a planet only reveals a strange, vaguely draconic shape made of energy ribbons. Another appears in the Guilst arc with more defined serpentine traits, with its most discernible feature being a gaping maw full of sharp teeth that unhinges like a snake when it eats a planet.
- Greater-Scope Villain: Chronophages are considered to be a greater threat to the cosmos than any of the villains face, simply because absolutely nothing can be done to avoid or undo the damage they cause erasing planets and displacing parts of history.
- Meaningful Name: The word "Chronophage" means "time eater", which fits its description perfectly.
- Ret Gone: The eating habits of the Chronophage inflict this on anyone who's made its meal. While natives of the planet may simply be replaced by earlier versions of themselves at best, provided they or any of their ancestors were present during the time that was rewound, those who weren't will be completely erased from existence.
- Spacetime Eater: They devour the time of planets they visit, permanently rewinding those planets to an earlier state. The only thing that remains of the planet's original form becomes a cloud-like energy field called a "spacetime wall", which makes leaving the planet impossible for all but the most skilled pilots.
- Cool Starship: The Skull Fairy is a gargantuan battleship with its prow resembling the head of a dragon, and that's just their cargo ship.
- Mythology Gag: The name of the ship "Skull Fairy" harkens back to the Fairy Tail series, especially considering the ship's owner is an Expy of one of its main characters. Their Jolly Roger also distinctly resembles the Fairy Tail guild emblem turned 90 degrees counterclockwise.
- Space Pirates: Elsie's crew is nested mostly in the romanticized Type 2 pirates that operate a massive fleet of warships locked in a Stern Chase with the Space Police, led by a cross between Erza Scarlet and Captain Harlock.
- Standard Sci-Fi Fleet: Elsie's fleet—which she loves to show off—looks more like a fleet of old-time seafaring pirate ships in space compared to the more modernized Interstellar Union Army fleet.
Debut: Chapter 2
The Armored Space Pirate, a scarlet-haired rogue who is infamous for conquering the Seven Cosmic Seas. She is familiar with the Demon King, and has been in fierce pursuit of Shiki for one reason or another.
- Actually a Doombot: When Shiki finally confronts her on the Skull Fairy, it turns out to be a Kawpicatt mimicking her form, with the real one hiding on her fleet nearby.
- Ambiguously Evil: Despite coming to be on friendly terms with Shiki and his friends, it's hard to peg her as a good guy, either, since she is still a feared outlaw who heartily laughs that she was only "half-joking" about selling them off into slavery on Guilst.
- Arch-Enemy: She is the personal nemesis of Justice from the Interstellar Union Army.
- Bad Boss: She shows shades of this, threatening to cut a subordinate in two for shouting.
- Badass Cape: Her big, black cape oozes authority and power.
- Card-Carrying Villain: While it may or may not be a stretch to call her a villain, she says that she lives for plundering and war about as casually as trying to remember the time.
- The Dreaded: She has such a fearsome reputation that nearly everyone in Shooting Starlight tries to avoid her, and the very thought of her causes Rebecca to shudder uncontrollably with terror. Reputation aside, however, she turns out to be a very affable pirate.
- Expy: Her name, appearance, and title are all distinctly modeled after Erza Scarlet, one of the protagonists of Mashima's previous series, Fairy Tail.
- Evil Redhead: Downplayed. She is a crimson-haired beauty who also happens to be a dastardly Space Pirate, but she's Ambiguously Evil at worst.
- Eyepatch of Power: Wears one across her right eye, adding to her imposing appearance. It's also a Mythology Gag
- First-Name Basis: She is one of the few people who addresses the Demon King solely by his real name, Ziggy, alluding to their good friendship.
- Flaunting Your Fleets: She shows off the entire fleet of pirate ships she has at her disposal when Shiki has reservations about taking the Skull Fairy, which he assumes to be her only ship.
- Foe Romance Subtext: Gets a bit of this with Justice, though she leans into it more than he's willing to. This is especially evident when she and her fleet slip right through Justice's fingers, smugly telling him she's "not that easy".
- Good All Along: Downplayed. Elsie is introduced as a threatening presence who's in pursuit of Shiki, but after a tense confrontation over ownership of the Skull Fairy, it's revealed that she's Ziggy's friend who was delivering the ship to Shiki out of goodwill, and wanted to test his worth; that does not, however, change the fact that she is a shameless criminal.
- It Amused Me: Part of the reason she tricks Shiki and his friends into fighting a bunch of aliens copying her and her crew over the Demon King's ship is because it's more fun than just handing the ship over.
- Lovable Rogue: She might be the biggest outlaw in the cosmos, but she is an honorable pirate and a loyal friend of Ziggy, which puts her on good terms with Shiki.
- Meaningful Name: Her last name matches the color of her hair.
- Noble Demon: For a notorious Space Pirate, she is highly respectful of the good Demon King's wishes out of debt to him, and has no quarrel with his grandson, Shiki. She is also shown to acknowledge others for their accomplishments when she applauds Weisz's skill as a pilot for breaking past the spacetime wall surrounding Norma, but also undercuts him for getting caught in her Tractor Beam so easily.
- Red Baron: She is known as the "Armored Space Pirate".
- Reused Character Design: Just as Jellal from Fairy Tail shares his design with Sieg Hart from Rave Master, Elsie's design is recycled from Erza Scarlet from Fairy Tail. Appearance aside, though, the two characters couldn't be more different, with Elsie being a Lovable Rogue compared to Erza's Knight in Shining Armor.
- Slasher Smile: She flashes one of these while talking about how much she loves to plunder and is planning to sell Shiki and the gang off. It's unclear how much of it she meant or not, but she laughs that she was "half-joking" about it.
- Troll: She taunts the crew of the Aqua Wing by claiming she's going to capture them and sell them to slavers, then challenges Shiki to duel her when he decides to take her ship. In actuality, she wasn't on the ship to begin with, the versions of her and the crew found there were all Kawpicatts, and she was planning to give him the ship either way; she simply thought to make things more "fun".
- Warrior Princess: In addition to being a Space Pirate, she is addressed as "Princess" by her crew.
Interstellar Union Army
- Freudian Trio: Not counting Jaguar, Justice is the methodical Superego; Victory is the openly expressive Id; and Creed is the Ego who shares both traits.
- Man in White: The officers have white, robotic-looking suits.
- Meaningful Name: The three officers shown have very to-the-point names regarding virtuous concepts.
- Space Navy: They have an entire armada of battleships dedicated to bringing in as few as one particularly dangerous Space Pirate.
- Space Police: They're an organization of law enforcement officers who work for the Cosmic Government.
Debut: Chapter 28
A captain in the Interstellar Union Army.
- The Stoic: Something he shares in common with his subordinate, Justice.
Debut: Chapter 13
A humorless officer of the Interstellar Union Army, with a particular determination to bring Elsie Crimson to justice. He uses some form of Ether Gear, but its only known effects are turning his hair blue and forming a distinct pattern around his right eye...
- Bishōnen: He's the most physically attractive of his fellow officers, and has effeminate, bushy hair.
- Dull Surprise: His stern expression doesn't change whenever he expresses shock or confusion.
- Expy: Not readily apparent at first, but activating his Ether Gear changes his hair color and creates distinct markings around his eyes, making him look exactly like Jellal from Fairy Tail and, by extension, Sieg Hart from Rave Master. His relationship with Elsie Crimson is also a dark reflection Jellal and Erza Scarlet's relationship in Fairy Tail: whereas Jellal is a brainwashed terrorist-turned-vigilante who shares a rocky relationship with the noble Erza, Justice is a stern and no-nonsense law enforcer pursuing the roguish Elsie.
- For Great Justice: It's not just his name, but his entire reason for turning in one of the cosmos's most notorious Space Pirates is to bring down the "hammer of justice".
- Inspector Javert: He's a law enforcer on the prowl for Elsie Crimson, one of the most notorious Space Pirates in the cosmos. However, Elsie turns out to be a quite charming and honorable pirate, making Justice this.
- No Sense of Humor: Victory's jokes about him secretly being in love with Elsie go straight over his head.
- Perpetual Frowner: He's only ever seen with one facial expression, and that's a disciplined scowl.
- Power Dyes Your Hair: His Ether Gear changes his color from pure white to a shade of blue.
- Power Tattoo: He gets a distinct ether marking around his right eye when he uses his Ether Gear.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: He notes that the Chronophage wiping out most of Guilst's population is a tragedy regardless of how the majority of them were Asshole Victims, stating a life is still a life.
- Reused Character Design: Justice is the second character created by Hiro Mashima to share the same design as Sieg Hart from Rave Master, following Jellal/Siegrain from Fairy Tail—third if you count Mystogan from the latter series.
- She Is Not My Girlfriend: He is unamused when Victory teasingly suggests his Stern Chase of Elsie sounds like something out of a love story.
Debut: Chapter 13
Justice's more easygoing companion.
- Ambiguously Brown: He is depicted with dark skin and light hair in the monochromatic images of the manga, but colored art gives him light-brown skin and medium-brown hair.
- Big Fun: Downplayed. He's the largest and most lighthearted of his direct associates, but he's also confrontational when questioned.
- Lantern Jaw of Justice: He's a heroic law enforcer with a square chin.
- Perma-Stubble: His chin has a rugged five-o'-clock shadow.
- Pragmatic Hero: When Creed notes that it's likely less than 10% of Guilst's population managed to get off-world before the Chronophage turned back time, Victory points out most of the population contributed to the Wretched Hive the planet was, and thus not really worth mourning over.
- Rugged Scar: Has a thin scar running up his right cheek to the top of his nose.
- Shipper on Deck: He jokingly pairs Justice together with Elsie in spite of the fact that Justice absolutely loathes her.
Debut: Chapter 13
Justice's anxious and analytical companion.
- Meganekko: Gender-inverted; he wears glasses and becomes meek under pressure.
- Multicolored Hair: Has a tuft of black hair resting atop slicked-back light hair.
- Non-Standard Character Design: Compared to other characters, he has a slightly more angular head and square eyes.
- Smart People Wear Glasses: He's the most analytical of his companions, and the only one to wear glasses.
Galactic Intelligence Agency (G.I.A.)
- Covert Group: They specialize in espionage and the like, sending moles to infiltrate other groups and either destroy them from the inside or use them as a means to an end.
- Dub Name Change: Zig-Zagged. The acronym "G.I.A." exists in the Japanese version, but it only fits the English equivalent of the full Japanese title: Gingakei Chōhō Kikan.
Debut: Chapter 30
A shapeshifter with the ability to perfectly copy anyone's appearance, personality, and memories.
- Absolute Cleavage: Her Digital Avatar on Digitalis wears a Spy Catsuit with an open front that goes all the way down to her navel, barely covering the outer halves of her bust.
- Ambiguously Human: She normally appears like a regular human woman, but her shapeshifting powers, and the way parts of her face disappear before she transforms, make it unclear just how human she actually is.
- Capture and Replicate: As a shapeshifter, she can easily take anyone's place to mimic them. She subjects Homura to this when the Edens Zero crew arrive on Digitalis, hacking the game to make her log into a prison cell so she can take her place. Rather than directly model her Digital Avatar after Homura, however, she chooses the form of a male Warrior Prince and passes it off as another one of Homura's quirks.
- Eyeless Face: When she's about to change form into someone else, her face loses its eyes.
- Genius Ditz: She has a ditzy manner of speech, but is also a Master of Disguise who can fool just about anyone.
- Got Me Doing It: The whole reason she reveals her true identity and abilities is because she was still channeling Homura's "Did I Just Say That Out Loud?" quirk due to mimicking her.
- Hair Decorations: She wears a hair clip shaped like a leaf branch.
- Like Is, Like, a Comma: This is her usual manner of speaking in the English translation due to her somewhat ditzy inflection in Japanese.
- Manipulative Bitch: She uses her master of mimicry to take Homura's place in the Edens Zero crew without a hint of suspicion, and almost successfully betrays the crew in disguise to make the real Homura take the fall once she's deemed the crew to be of no further use.
- Master of Disguise: She can mimic just about anyone, from their appearance to their behavior and speech patterns.
- Mega Twintails: Her hair is style into two corkscrew-shaped pigtails.
- The Mole: She infiltrates the Edens Zero crew on Digitalis by taking Homura's place so she can get close to Jamilov and find Drakken Joe.
- Morph Weapon: She carries an Ether pistol on Digitalis that can be converted into a sniper rifle. It's unknown if it can also change form in the real world.
- Telepathy: She can read others' memories, which helps when it comes to copying others.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: Her spy work revolves entirely around her power to perfectly change into whoever she wants.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: At least that's what she says she is, claiming that she wants to bring Drakken Joe and other criminals to justice, though her actual actions leave something to be desired.
- Would Hurt a Child: More specifically, she would hurt a fully sentient child made out of data, since it's not like hurting a "real" child anyway.
Debut: Chapter 33
Amira's subordinate, who operates as a mole within Elsie Crimson's crew.
- Blinding Bangs: The whole upper half of his face is covered by his hair.
- Chekhov's Gunman: He's first seen in the cover of Chapter 1, and makes a few insignificant appearances among Elsie's other crew members, suggesting he may be a member of her crew. It isn't until Chapter 33 that he's revealed to be Amira's fellow government spy.
- Keigo: In Japanese, he addresses Amira as anego, a polite form of "elder sister" used for actual sisters, or otherwise women who the speaker deeply respects.
- The Mole: He's this for Elsie's crew, and is working to take them down from the inside.
Debut: Chapter 49
A mysterious space captain from the Aoi Cosmos that the Edens Zero crew bring aboard their ship.
- Accidental Pervert: He climbs into the Spa of Eden with Rebecca and Homura not because he's a pervert, but because he saw Happy with them and assumed it was a mixed bath. Rebecca kicks him into the air and boots him out for his error.
- Ace Pilot: Connor shows he has real piloting chops by flying the Edens Zero straight through a hazardous debris field none of the ship's crew would dare to enter, all without a single bump or scratch. The fact that the crew didn't notice his death-defying stunt shows just how much of a cakewalk he made it seem.
- Antiquated Linguistics: He speaks with a formal and archaic register in Japanese, and uses the antiquated pronoun wagahai.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He is a pompous man of many oddities and poor habits who grates the crew's nerves, but he's also a bona fide Ace Pilot when he puts himself behind the helm of the Edens Zero (with or without the crew's permission).
- The Captain: He was in charge of his own ship before falling overboard and getting picked up by the Edens Zero. By some strange twist of fate, his old ship is known as the Edens One, and he has piloting skills to match Demon King Ziggy, the Edens Zero's original captain.
- Cool Old Guy: He's middle-aged, balding, overweight, and one of the finest ship captains the Edens Zero crew has ever seen.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He looks and acts like a pompous and self-entitled oaf most of the time, but when he puts himself at the helm of the Edens Zero, he proves to be an Ace Pilot whose skills astound the Demon King's most experienced crewmates.
- Dirty Old Man: Downplayed. He admires Rebecca and Homura's beauty, and ends up sharing a bath with them because he mistook it for co-ed, but he makes sure they know he isn't hitting on them and always keeps his distance—not that this makes them any more comfortable.
- Fat Slob: He's an overweight middle-aged man with a huge appetite and bad table manners, which include talking while he's eating.
- Going Down with the Ship: He certainly tried doing this when he lost his old ship, evidenced by the fact that the Edens Zero crew finds him still clutching his ship's wheel while drifting in space.
- Heavy Sleeper: He snores like a buzzsaw when he sleeps, which serves to add to the crew's irritation with him.
- Insistent Terminology: He insists that everyone call him "Captain", including those who aren't part of his crew or who'd otherwise contest his rank.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: By the time the crew has just about had enough of Connor, they find he's already cut their three-day voyage to Sun Jewel down to a matter of minutes, having taken a shortcut through a perilous debris before any of them could notice.
- Sophisticated as Hell: Despite his formal manner of speaking, he isn't afraid to swear like a sailor, such as when he teaches Pino how to say "Screw you"—a Bowdlerization of what they say in Japanese. On a lighter note, he also teaches her how to flap her lips like a horse.
- Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: He slips into this when he finds himself starving, telling the crew his stomach is "beset by extreme emptiness".
- Talk Like a Pirate: Kodansha translates his Antiquated Linguistics in Japanese by making him talk like a sophisticated sailor.
- There Is Another: Being that he is the captain of a ship called Edens One, he is the first indicator that there are other Edens ships in the universe besides Edens Zero, though he himself is uncertain about what this could mean.
Debut: Chapter 45
Debut: Chapter 46
Debut: Chapter 46
Debut: Chapter 52
A supermodel and certified butler from Genos, a planet reputed for hosting attractive men.
- Batter Up!: He uses a bat to break Kurenai's nose out of revenge for what she did to his face.
- Bishōnen: He comes from a planet that's reportedly full of them.
- Career-Ending Injury: As a model, he takes extreme care in his face, since the slightest injury or imperfection would put him out of a job. It's for this reason that Madame Kurenai permanently scars it.
- Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: Inverted. When Madame Kurenai maims and tortures Cedric for touching her face without consent after he gladly strips naked for her per her request, it's treated as Disproportionate Retribution. When Cedric rallies a gang of her slaves to get revenge by beating her and turning her into their own slave, it's treated as Laser-Guided Karma.
- Facial Horror: He gets his face horrifically burned by Madame Kurenai for touching her face without consent.
- Hell-Bent for Leather: Following his disfigurement and fall from grace, he trades his classy suit out for a leather jacket and pants, signifying his degradation into a brutal thug.
- Human Pet: Implied to be the same applicant Madame Kurenai decided to keep as a pet for a little while because she at least thought he was cute (despite singing his face), but it's impossible to tell for sure due to the poor sap's leather mask.
- No Sense of Personal Space: Deconstructed. He applies for a position as Madame Kurenai's attendant, but gets far more intimate with her than the job requires by stroking her face after she orders him to strip naked. For this invasion of personal space, she mutilates his face.
- Pay Evil unto Evil: After Madame Kurenai burns his face off and (possibly) turns him into a Human Pet, he pays her back in full once she falls from grace by rallying a gang of thugs she imprisoned, breaking her face with a bat, and planning to turn her into their pet.
- Would Hit a Girl: Once Kurenai sadistically disfigures him and ruins his career, Cedric doesn't hold back from hitting her in the face with a bat when the opportunity for revenge comes.
Creatures and Machines
Debut: Chapter 1
Gargantuan creatures that soar through the cosmos like comets. Countless dragons swarm in a hazardous region of space bordering the Sakura Cosmos called Dragonfall.
- Always a Bigger Fish: Rebecca's Aqua Wing is hardly as big as a dragon's eyeball, yet a dragon itself is about the size of a firefly compared to Mother.
- Giant Flyer: A variant that's dreadnaught-sized and flies through space.
- Instant Awesome: Just Add Dragons!: Their existence serves as Shiki's first indicator of how incredible space really is.
- Mechanical Lifeforms: If not for the fact that they're confirmed to be living, independent creatures, one could easily assume dragons to be spaceships in the shape of one.
- Our Dragons Are Different: Dragons in Edens Zero are Mechanical Lifeforms that live exclusively in space.
- That's No Moon!: They're so massive and luminous that they can easily be mistaken for comets from a distance.
Debut: Chapter 2
A species of "dog" aliens that can be found just about anywhere in Blue Garden.
- Call a Smeerp a "Rabbit": Just like in any fictional universe, they're called "dogs" even though they don't remotely look like them.
- Expy: Just like in Fairy Tail, their appearance is based on Plue from Rave Master. Their species name is also the same as it is in Fairy Tail.
- Servant Race: At least one diner Shiki, Rebecca, and Happy visit is run entirely by Nikora waiters and chefs.
- Supreme Chef: The Nikora that run the Diner Fairy's on Blue Garden are quite famous for their delicacies, such as cureberry chicken.
Debut: Chapter 12
Mimetic alien parasites that copy the appearances of humans. They're considered to be a nuisance due to their tendency to infest ships.
- Combat Tentacles: Their forearms can change into tentacles that extend and secrete adhesive slime to attack and ensnare their victims.
- Dub Name Change: "Kawpicatt" is a close approximation of their Japanese name, Nīteru, which is a pun on the word niteru, meaning "similar-looking".
- Octopoid Aliens: Shiki thinks they're some kind of space octopus going by their tentacle limbs, though when one reverts to its actual form, it's a small, slimy oculothorax.
- Punny Name: "Kawpicatt" is a corruption of the word "copycat", suiting their nature as mimickers.
- Shapeshifter Default Form: The Kawpicatts' default form is that of a tiny little Blob Monster with a single eye.
- Shapeshifting: They can mimic the appearance of humans using traces of DNA. Once incapacitated, they revert to their base forms.
- Skull for a Head: The Kawpicatt mimicking Elsie has a terrifying skull face with Glowing Eyes of Doom.
- Zombie Gait: They slowly shamble around like zombies, though their Combat Tentacles help pick up the slack with their elasticity and long reach.
Debut: Chapter 30
A breed of noble "white horse" (actually a purple rabbit-like creature) that players of Rogue Fantasia can add to their parties on Digitalis. They are known as "Tantimo" for short.
- Call a Smeerp a "Rabbit": He's supposedly a horse, if a horse was actually a giant, head-wagging rabbit with frog lips.
- Expy: Like Nikora/Plue, he is exported directly from Rave Master, where he served as the Rave Warriors' "carriage horse" in their search for the Rave stones, which his in-game backstory also alludes to.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Tantimo's Japanese name is unchanged from how it's spelled in Rave Master, "Tanchimo", but is nonetheless changed here.
Debut: Chapter 45
The natives of Mildian. They love watching battles as much as their planet's ruler, Xiaomei.
Debut: Chapter 46
Debut: Chapter 50
Madame Kurenai's android soldiers who pass judgment onto the "lesser" criminals of Sun Jewel.
- Mecha-Mooks: They're Madame Kurenai's robotic footsoldiers. They also don't last long at all once Shiki decides to let Kurenai have it.
Debut: Chapter 51
Mineral-based lifeforms that infest the caves and mines of Sun Jewel. The metal ore on their bodies serves as Madame Kurenai's primary source of income.
- Attack Its Weak Point: Black Rock's entire body is covered in impenetrable crystal scales with the exception of a weak spot on its back.
- Big Creepy-Crawlies: The most common Stones take on the appearance of ants and wasps the size of a human thigh. This poses a particular problem for Shiki, who freezes up at the mere sight of them.
- Call a Smeerp a "Rabbit": Invoked when Shiki and Homura face Black Rock, whose body vaguely resembles a cat, which Homura encouorages Shiki to focus on when he has bug-like Stones on his mind.
- Fed to the Beast: The highest crime for insubordination on Sun Jewel is to be sent to the den of Black Rock, the largest and strongest Stone of all.
- Hero Killer: An entire swarm of them managed to damage Valkyrie—one of the strongest fighters of the Edens Zero crew—beyond all hope of repair, effectively killing her.
- Kaiju: It's said by Sun Jewel's prisoners that some Stones take on the forms of giant monsters, with Black Rock serving as the prime example.
- Lamprey Mouth: Black Rock's entire head is essentially a funnel-shaped mouth with no eyes.
- Our Monsters Are Weird: While most Stones generally resemble normal animals, Black Rock has the most surreal design of them all, appearing to be a cross between a dragon and a Persion cat with a funnel-shaped head.
- Silicon-Based Life: Downplayed. Stones look like regular organic creatures, but they have varying degrees of metal ore that protrude from their bodies. Black Rock, on the other hand, plays this completely straight by being covered from head to toe in crystal scales.
- Super Toughness: Black Rock's scales are strong enough to withstand Shiki's gravity-powered punches and shatter Homura's Ether sword on contact.
- Zerg Rush: No matter how weak they are, Stones are at their deadliest in large numbers. One escaped horde threatened to completely decimate the entire labor district, and were enough to kill Valkyrie despite all of them being slain by her in the end.
