Ai Hayakawa
Yu's "big sister" (actually his twin). Ai is a bit of a whiner for a twelve-year-old, and tends to provide the comic relief in the party. She's innately suspicious of most things, and thinks everything in the Inner World is weird. She's right, of course (most of it ends up embarrassing her at one point or another). Chocobos have a fixation on pulling her pigtails. At one point, she meets up with Fabra, who gives her Pokepoche as a pet. An encounter with Kuria leaves her a good deal more thoughtful than earlier. However, both Ai and Yu are a bit more complicated than it seems...

Expand Images

Aura
The person who must certainly have been Kaze's love in his earlier life... Aura was killed when his world was destroyed by Chaos. She turned herself into Soil for Kaze to use in his battles. She apparently had a relationship with Makenshi.

Expand Images

Bolbol
A weird (and possibly gay) clothier living near Telos who has the ability to make Flight Water clothes for exorbitent prices. Ru befriends him when she finds him.

Expand Images

Cactuar
Cute, lovable Cactuar! The Cactuars all live in a village in a desert where they try to defeat the "wandering ocean" who keeps them from seeing the sun. As you might expect, they can shoot needles from their bodies and are extremely fast (running without actually moving their limbs) - and they hate water. The sound they make is a kind of squeak that sounds like "geKA!".

Expand Images

Chaos Tyrant
See Earl Tyrant.

Chobi
A wacky Chocobo picked up by Yu on his first outing in the Inner World. Chobi is full of idiosyncrasies: the tendency to grab Ai by her pigtail and run around with her; an illogical affinity for the giant, super-spicy Dead Peppers, which cause it to breathe fire and run around screaming; and the ability to jump at an enemy and kick it to bits (just like the Chocobo Kick summon!) He wears Isabel, the Inner World clock made by Cid, around his neck; it was apparently placed there by Oscha as a tracking device. The clock also allows Yu, Ai, and Lisa to anticipate when and where the interdimensional subway will go next. At one point, he encounters the ancient Ciel ruins, which gives him the power to transform into the legendary Ciel Chocobo, which can fly. Incidentally, he's voiced by the same person as Earl Tyrant.

Expand Images

Chocobaba
An extremely whacked-out old lady riding a chocobo, whose repertoire of conversation consists of "So the rumours say" and "It never ends..."

Expand Images

Chocoimo
Chocobaba's younger sister (if you can believe that). She's just as wacky as her sister, and her own conversation is "I don't know..." and "or something like that". 8p She's even voiced by the same person as her sister.

Expand Images

Cid
This version's Cid is a cheerful, optimistic, and energetic technician, a wizard at anything electronic. He carries around weird high-tech equipment and inventions wherever he goes (some of them can pack quite a punch!) He names his inventions after females and has a way-too-close connection with them. He has his own insignia, and wears neato specs. He's the brains behind the Comodin. You DON'T want to be around him when he gets mad (he pulls all kinds of crazy gadgets out of his backpack and gets medieval on whosever's ass is around). A rather hilarious episode in which he gets turned into a frog ends up with a kiss between him and Mireth, and their relationship has been rather strained since then.

Cid's Insignia


Clear
(Aliases: Kuria (JP)) An iridescent boy who's actually the heart of Omega. He curbs his innate destructive tendencies by wearing clothes made out of Flight Water, which he received from Bolbol. He hates himself for destroying everything he touches. Ai tries to bring him close, but an unfortunate incident ends up with his glove being torn off and an explosion occurring, separating him from Ai.

Expand Images

Crux
(Aliases: Krux, Crux Number-2) A fairy marionette brought to life by Oscha and sent to spy on Kaze and friends, and report to whichever of Earl Tyrant's minions happens to be around. Her entire vocabulary seems to be "kukuruyu", which sounds like a dove's cooing. She's not quite mindless, though... in fact, if it weren't for her the series would have ended quite differently. Incidentally, she's voiced by the same actor as Fabra.

Expand Images

Earl Tyrant
Earl Tyrant is basically the human representation of Chaos (he can transform into a giant winged creature). When human, he's constantly eating what his "pastry chefs", the Hayakawas, prepare for him: namely emotions like fear and anger created by his machinations on our heroes. He searches out Omega so that he can recombine it and complete his plan to dominate absolutely everything.

Expand Images

Fabula
(Aliases: Fabra) The Guiding One; an oracle-like figure who lives in what looks like an oyster. She introduces each episode and "prophecizes" (i.e. gives a preview) of the next one. At first it seems like this is the extent of her character, but in episode 3 she actually appears to Ai inside the story to give her a bit of hope and a little pet named Pochepoke. She also guides the party out of Omega's grasp in a later episode.

Expand Images

Frog Sage
(Aliases: Frog Hermit) An old, annoying little frog who turns Cid into a frog too! Everything he says ends in "-kero", which is Japanese for "ribbit".

Expand Images

Fungo
A very strange prankster, apparently from a different Outer World. He gains Ai's extreme displeasure when he steals her bag (and eats it!), but as it later turns out he's a member of the Comodin, and takes them to Knave and his friends. He has acute Spidey-Sense and just before something bad happens, says "I have a bad feeling about this", which is usually too late for anyone to do anything about it. 8p He can understand certain strange creatures as well (like Cactuars). He likes eating absolutely everything (and I mean everything).

Expand Images

Fungus
The second of the Deathlords working for the Earl Tyrant; a mushroom man whose attacks deal with fungae/poison and the like. He always has a pipe in his mouth (apparently it blows out steam). He spends most of his time losing to Kaze, dying, being reincarnated at one-tenth the size, then embarrasingly waiting till he's full-size again to do anything. He's technically immortal as long as his world still exists. Part of it was absorbed by the Inner World, so when he ends up back there he uses its energy to (e.g.) grow to giant-size and try to pound things. However, the whole thing ends up being a trap by a disgruntled Earl Tyrant to finally kill Fungus and his world via a destructive mold, and feed him to Chaos.

Expand Images

Herba
A mischievous plant-lady, one of the four immortal Deathlords of Gaudium who attend on the Earl Tyrant. Her attacks are themed after various flora, and apparently her curiosity and playfulness overwhelm her common sense - if she has any, that is.

Expand Images

Joe Hayakawa
Ai and Yu's father, a geologist. He disappeared into the Inner World with his wife Marie, and his twin children search for him. As it turns out, he's being mind-controlled to work for Earl Tyrant, who uses his research abilities to further his plan to dominate absolutely everything.

Expand Images

Kaze
The victim of a tragic past, Kaze has been turned into a complete introvert. He barely speaks except when there's something he wants (he never replies to anyone). But he's not one to get close to - he holds unimaginable power; Oscha and Fungus both call him the "Unlimited", the one with the power to destroy the gods (hence the title of the series). He carries around two weapons; a regular red gun which can still destroy most things out there, and a Demon Gun attached to his arm. He has a strange relationship with it; he variously calls it his "heart" and his "life". It uses Soil (the crystals of those killed by Chaos) to combine three magical colored bullets into a shoukanjuu (Summoned Creature), which then decimates the enemy in various ways. Kaze's only goal (and the only thing he shows any emotion about) is to obliterate Shroi Kumo, his archenemy, who apparently headed the attack on his home world. Apparently their first battle created the dark tunnel to Tokyo, and ended up with Kaze being put to sleep for twelve years. Although Kaze generally ends up saving Ai, Yu, and Lisa from some monster, he most definitely doesn't actually care about them...with the possible exception of Lisa, whom I think reminds him of Aura, a woman in his past. He also has an uncanny ability to be where they are before they get there, even if it's technically impossible for him to do so. I believe he follows them around because Earl Tyrant is after them and Shroi Kumo works for Earl Tyrant. Oh: and he has a perfectly good eye under the patch(actually half a pair of sunglasses), a perfectly good arm under the gun, and is actually pretty scrawny under the cloak. Image is everything. 8p He also has a strange relationship with Moogle...

Expand Images

Knave
The leader of the Comodin, a group rebelling against Earl Tyrant; a very Russian-looking swashbuckler, whose goal is to try to restore order and justice to the chaos carried by Earl Tyrant and his lackeys. Fungo, Cid, and Mireth work for him. He's actually quite a wimp, although he has the highest ideals.

Expand Images

Lisa Pacifist
A rather interesting character. Lisa jumped on the subway to the Demon World along with the Hayakawa twins. She's an "agent" sent to find the Hayakawas as well, though she doesn't reveal this till the very end of the series. In the meantime, Ai believes she's looking for her boyfriend in the Inner World. In any case, unlike Kaze, Lisa consents to travel with the twins and shows a genuine affection for them. Lisa controls a unique power called Kigenjutsu (Defender of Life), which allows her to harness the energy of nature, and she uses it to great effect whenever she can, usually to protect Ai and Yu... being careful not to overuse it, because doing so would result in her death, just like her mother did. However, she's of no use against Earl Tyrant's Deathlords or their stronger creatures, so Kaze usually has to step in.

Expand Images

Lou Lupus
(Aliases: Ru) An unassuming-looking young girl who refers to herself in the third person, Ru hides a secret (though not very long) ability to turn into a werewolf when she looks at herself in the mirror (at which time she can scream a bolt of energy at people). After Kaze saves her from Omega (albeit unintentionally... I think), she develops a huge crush on him, flying in the face of all logic, and vows to search after him through the Inner World. She eventually gets a cape made of Flight Water, which lets her fly around. At the very end, her love for Kaze finally breaks through to him...

Expand Images

Madoushi
By all rights his name should be Red Mist, but the credits just say Madoushi (Sorceror). He's Shroi Kumo's brother. Consumed by sibling rivalry gone awry, he always wanted to test his brother and see who was stronger... so much so that even after he died, his will lived on in his soul sword. After being revived by Oscha, he challenges Shroi Kumo one final time, only to be cut down for good.

Expand Images

Makenshi
Kaze's epic archenemy, the Demon Swordsman... although he seems to have a reluctance to actually fight Kaze, mainly, I think, because he knows they're really on the same side. He's also very reticent, but I think it's for different reasons... Kaze really just doesn't care about people, but Shroi Kumo seems just to be too burdened to say anything. I think he's a basically good man, but he works for Earl Tyrant because he's been overpowered... and possibly because he doesn't have anything else to live for, his world having been eaten by Chaos. His attacks all look similar: he uses bottles of mist to summon a white dragon, using names of music (etude, quartet, symphony, etc.). The shade of his brother Madoushi ends up being killed by him, and he begins to be disillusioned with Earl Tyrant, even after being made a Deathlord of Gaudium. He starts to surreptitiously help the Comodin and Ai/Yu/Lisa and eventually comes out in the open, sacrificing himself to defeat Earl Tyrant.

Expand Images

Marie Hayakawa
(Aliases: Mary) Joe's wife, also a geologist, who disappeared with him into the Inner World; her children Ai and Yu search for them with Lisa's help. Her situation is identical to Joe's.

Expand Images

Mireth
Apparently the second-in-command of the Comodin. Her voice is deeper than usual for a woman, and she's quite a tomboy. She's a dead shot with blowdarts, and has a really weird taste in food (we're talking reptiles here). An encounter with a froggy Cid results in an embarrassing kiss which makes her giggle like a schoolgirl whenever she talks to him afterwards.

Expand Images

Moogle
An "emissary of the Soil", he apparently knew Kaze in his previous life (and is one of the only things Kaze actually remembers). His little boingy bobble has funky powers - it can protect from evil waves, for one thing, and can repair or enhance the Demon Gun. He can also fly around all over the place. His face and attire resemble a mini-Kaze in many ways. ^^; As you might expect, everything he says ends in "-kupo" (emphasis on "po"). He claims his given name is Kupo-Kupo.

Expand Images

Omega
Named after the ultimate optional boss fight in FF5 and FF8, this boss is no longer optional! A devouring creature apparently made of antimatter... its mere existence destroys things. It was torn into pieces which were spread around the Inner World, but it's still alive! It can exist in crystal form when it's inert, or in rather more interesting forms, such as Kuria. The power source for Elizabeth, the subway, was a piece of Omega.

Expand Images

Oscha
Apparently the most intelligent of the four Guardians. Oscha resembles a jester with no arms (he's quite bendy though). Actually, he does have arms, but they're usually absorbed into his body. His face is covered by a white mask. The only time I've seen him confront Kaze he used a complicated machine as his Monster-Of-The-Day. I've never seen him surprised by anything. Oscha has the abilty to turn his body into shadow.

Expand Images

Pist Shaz XI
Look up "slimy bastard" in the dictionary and you'll find his portrait. Quite literally. A freaky fish-man with a mouth in the back of his head, he rides around in a souped-up '50s car with a pool in the middle of it. Incorrigibly arrogant, boastful, and unfortunately more intelligent than the other three Deathlords living in Gaudium. He relies on speed and the analyzing of previously obtained data to actually plan out his fights other than just going in there and hitting people with monsters like Herba or Fungus. His first encounter with Kaze began with the keen observation that it takes him about a minute and a half to actually fire his gun. 8p Talk about breaking down the fourth wall! He's also got a showbiz streak in him, and is the mastermind behind the giant Ocean Puzzle. He has an incredibly annoying laugh ("shashasha!").

Expand Images

PoshePocket
(Aliases: Pochepoke) A little creature Ai calls "scarily cute". She came across it when visiting Fabra's oyster-like home. Fabra ended up giving it to her as a pet. All it is is a big mouth with sharp teeth and a moustache. It has the power to spit out almost anything Ai asks it to, but it can also eat anything as well! Ai ends up covering it up with masking tape unless she needs it for something.

Expand Images

Sagi
A young boy with HUGE puppy-dog eyes found by Lisa in one of Oscha's crazy contraptions. Sagi spends his time laying a guilt trip the size of Mississippi on Lisa. O_o As it turns out, he's the embodiment of a sagisou (egret orchid) whom Lisa confided in as a child. How it got to the Inner World and got turned into a human? Please don't ask. These sort of things just happen in anime.

Expand Images

Somosan
A giant mermaid... her voice first sounds like she's almost crying, but she gets nastier. 8p She's one of the challenges inside the Ocean Puzzle; her riddles are designed to have no answer and confuse the players, sinking them closer into Chaos... but Lisa, with Kaze's help, finally pierces her illusion.

Expand Images

Shiroi Kumo
See Makenshi.

Yu Hayakawa
Ai's more thoughtful twin brother, the kind of person who likes little animals. In fact, he befriends a rather hyperactive chocobo early on (whom he names Chobi), and wears one of its feathers, upon which time he realizes he can read Chobi's thoughts a bit. He tends to be a bit less annoying than his "big sister", and sometimes gets discouraged during their quest to find their parents.
