Dawn of the Breakers is a 2018 free-to-play Beat 'em Up game by Cyberstep, first released on the Nintendo Switch, with Steam and mobile ports out a few months later.

Set in Japan Twenty Minutes In To The Future, strange beings known as ghouls have began to spring up. Combatting them is a special organization of heroes known as the Enchant Force, where various people known as Enchanters can temporarily power up in hero forms to take them on in a fight. The game focuses on the Breakers, a team of high school Enchanters. While on one of their missions, they come across someone with silver hair and no memory of who he is. This young man, who can be named by the playernote , also has mysterious powers and is hinted to be the key needed to finally thwart the ghouls for good.

The story of the game is told across Quests, divided in to Episodes of five parts each. As of July 2019, the story mode is on Episode 10, with at least an eleventh episode upcoming. News can be found on the official Twitter. There are also limited events with their own storylines, separate from the main story.


  • All There in the Manual:
    • The game's website is where the Avatar's "official" name of Silver is revealed. In-game he's always called whatever you name him.
    • The Co-op Quest select menu is the only place in the game to find out the names of some of the minibosses. The giant mass of ghouls weirdly fused together is called the Slime Ghoul, the tornado-shaped ones made of rectangles are Cyber Ghouls, the tall ones with claws are Reaper Ghouls, and so on.
  • Ambiguously Human: Silver has the ability to transform in to some strange light version of himself and has powers nobody else has anything near. He is also one of three known characters capable of surviving the portal to the ghouls' homeworld, along with Phantom (a literal ghost) and Xenos (who apparently lost his original body; what he is now is not clear either).

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: An optional cutscene shows the Commander able to one-shot whole groups of Ruin Vanguard mooks without transforming. He may be a jerkass, but he's also the leader of the Enchant Force for a good reason.
  • Badass Teacher: Yuki Kagura is both the captain of the Breakers unit and their homeroom teacher.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Mikoto's Gemini and Lucient Blade getups show this after attaining their true forms.
  • Blue Is Heroic: Aiba Fudo and Keiji Kitajima, two of the heroes, have blue hair and are two of the heroes.
  • Braids of Action: Sakura, one of the heroes, for the most part has her hair tied this way, except in her School Girl Artillery Outfit where she has her hair tied in a normal ponytail.
  • Dark Is Evil: Almost all of the ghouls are mostly black or have dark color schemes.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Rishin Takizawa, one of the heroes, has black hair and most of his outfits have black coloring. Mei Shiranui, another one of the heroes, too has black hair and dresses in that color.
  • Denser and Wackier: The Virtual Youtuber crossover events are far goofier than the game proper, with oddities such as giant sapient bunny costumes (or people inside bunny costumes), buff men with horned bird heads running around, swarms of large ducks with hats, and the characters themselves summoning up their own abilities from some sort of belief system. The main game takes itself more seriously than this.
  • Doppelgänger Attack: Several of Mikoto's moves in her Gemini getup summon a clone of herself that fights with her.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Mikoto has this in her Gemini getup. Her left eye is red, the other one blue, she has one piece of gear on her ear, her hair has a magenta streak on her left side, has one piece of armor on her right hip, and the "gems" on her knees, feet, and shoulders are colored differently on their sides(e.g. the "gems" on her left side are Red, Blue, Red). Upon fully awakening, she gains a piece of armor on her hip with a blue "gem" and the magentra streak of hair becomes redder in color.
  • Fanservice: Fully awakening a hero will also unlock the option to view and play as their "true appearance." Generally this results in Rare and Super Rare heroes just wearing less clothing, however, with Super Rare heroes getting a different pose in their 2D artwork. (Normal-ranked heroes tend to just get a mild palette change.)
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Ichika Hatsushika and Kiri Kanegae have Blonde hair and are two of the heroes.
  • Meganekko: Sakura Yabuki has glasses in nearly all her attires. However, they are not present in her School Girl Artillery attire.
  • Multicolored Hair:
    • Rishin has Black hair that is partially Red.
    • Mikoto's Gemini form has her traditional Pink hair with a Magenta streak on the left. Once Gemini in its true form, said streak gets redder in color.
  • Naked First Impression: The Breakers first find Silver lying out at night, knocked out, and naked. As of Episode 10, the reason why he's naked is unexplained.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Mikoto Misono and Tilda have Pink hair and several of their outfits are Pink.
  • Qipao: Kiri wears one in her Qipao Zhanshi form.
  • Rapunzel Hair:
    • Ichika, Kiri, Mei, Mikoto, Nono Himekura, and Sakura Yabuki, have very long hair. Of course, it's not present on every outfit.
    • While Yuki Kagura usually has short hair, it reaches past her back in her Wicked Blade outfit.
  • Red IS Heroic: Yusaku Akagi, one of the heroes, has red hair and most of his outfits are red. Mikoto Misono, also has red coloring on several of her outfits, and in the case of her Gemini getup,one of her eyes is red with its true form making the magenta hair streak redder in color.
  • Sci-Fi Bob Haircut: Mikoto wears her hair like this in her futuristic-looking Gemini getup.
  • Underboobs: Shizuka Mikami and Yuki have these as part of their Nightmare Claws (Both Versions) and Wicked Blade outifts respectively. Yuki's Calamity Trigger outfit also shows her with these in its true form.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Ryo Miyanoshita and Shizuka have green Hair; Nono and Yuki have violet; Aiba and Keiji have blue; Sakura and Sawako have cyan.
