Protagonists

Haken Browning (Voiced by Nobuyuki Hiyama)

Haken.jpg

The protagonist of Endless Frontier, 23-year-old Haken Browning is captain of the dimension-travelling vehicle Zeit Krokodil (German for "Time Crocodile") and a bounty hunter, faithfully followed by his Sidekick Aschen Brodel. He's also a ladies' man, complimenting everyone of the fairer sex. He has Sanger Zonvolt's colour scheme and Excellen Browning's surname, but is defined as Kyosuke Nanbu's Expy; he takes on the role of the calm, cool leader and has a gambling habit, even naming most of his attacks after gambling stints (Texas Hold'em, High Low Draw, etc.)

He also seems to attract a number of beings similar to Personal Troopers, only double a human's size. These turn out to be Gespents of the Shadow-Mirror organization, modified in the Endless Frontier by the Orchestral Army to resemble the blueprints of the much larger Shadow-Mirror mecha. As it turns out, he's W00, the Super Prototype of Lemon Browning's W-Numbers. The rest were robots and mostly-machine cyborgs rather than extremely enhanced humans like Haken because they decided it took too long to wait for him to grow up.

Haken carries two weapons with him at all times: the Night Fowl rifle and the Longtomb Special revolver. He embodies these tropes:

Tropes exhibited by this character include:
  • Ascended Fanboy: Vice Chief Lee Ly of the Zeit Krokodil often mocks his cowboy costume.
  • Badass Longcoat
  • BFG: The Longtomb can disassemble itself into an Big Fraggin' Cannon. In the sequel Endless Frontier EXCEED, it doubles as a portable Wave Motion Gun.
  • Bodyguard Crush: For Kaguya Nanbu
  • Casanova Wannabe: Subversion...at first, as he flirts with every girl and gets turned down, but eventually wins Kaguya's heart...and maybe a little more...
  • Combination Attack: Phantom Hold 'Em and Rampage Specter; the former with the Gespenst Phantom, while the latter is Haken simply summoning the Alt Eisen Nacht and Weiss Ritter Abend, instead.
  • Generation Xerox: Hilariously played with: although Haken isn't John Moses's biological son, John mistakes Kaguya for a call-in escort the first time they meet. No wonder Haken's such a Lovable Sex Maniac.
  • Gratuitous English: A lot, such as "OK!", "Bingo!" and "Last showdown!"
  • Gratuitous Spanish: Sort of; he does say "Adios!" often.
  • Guns Akimbo
  • The Gunslinger: Combines Types C and D
  • Opposite Gender Clone: Lemon did use her blood to create him...
  • Shout-Out: Haken means "hook" in German and he arrived in the Endless Frontier on a ship called Neverland, with a navigation computer called Tinkerbell. The Zeit Krokodil refers to a certain crocodile that ate, amongst other things, a clock and one captain's hand. Do you get it?
  • Super Prototype
  • Super Soldier: Implied
  • Swiss Army Gun/Bayonet Ya: The Night Fowl's a customized assault rifle that fires normal rounds with an underslung piledriver below the rifle's barrel and a fold-out bayonet in the stock.
  • Theme Naming: All his attacks are related in some way to poker: Texas Hold 'Em, High Low Draw, Best Flush, Five Card Stud, Jackpot, Last Showdown.
  • The Nicknamer: Every single person he meets.
  • White-Haired Pretty Boy: Heroic, nonetheless.

Kaguya Nanbu (Voiced by Yukana)

Kaguya.jpg

The young, innocent princess of the Nanbu Clan in Kagura Amahara, Kaguya's the heiress of the sword-fighting style Jinraku Tengen. On her first meeting with Haken, she unknowingly hires him and Aschen to escort her in her pilgrimage. Throughout her travels, her relationship with Haken grows more forward than that... and she's hot... yeah...

Although she has Kyosuke's surname, she seems to be more of a loose Expy of Excellen, since her personality is almost like her: innocent, playful and the one to provide the most Fan Service (not that she tries to invoke it, unlike Excellen). She also has more Sanger references than Haken, starting from her sword Goushiki Zankantou to her styling herself as "The Sword That Cleaves Evil", and Sanger's trademark "CHEESTOOOOOO!!!!". Some of the tropes that represent Kaguya are:

Tropes exhibited by this character include:

Aschen Brodel (Voiced by Kaori Shimizu)

Aschen.jpg

Haken's loyal and devoted sidekick, Aschen's a green-haired combat cyborg capable of emitting human-like emotions...sometimes. At first, you'd think she's a blatant Expy of Lamia, but it's justified: Aschen's, in fact, her predecessor (or, to a lesser extent, "sister") codenamed W07. She, along with Haken and the rest of W-Numbers 1 through 9 were the first to be sent to the Original Generation universe during Beowulf's attack, but they were put in the first batch of the teleportation device, namely the unstable ones. Haken and Aschen stumbled into the Endless Frontier and have been there for the past twenty-three years.

Unlike Lamia, who's mostly stoic unless the situation requires, Aschen's more than just stoic. She has a sharp tongue and at times flings insults, especially regarding Haken's womanizing attitude, and invents other derisive nicknames like "Dairy Cow Princess" or "Princess Flat" (for Suzuka-hime). She's also installed with Code DTD (Dust-to-Dust), but instead of it being a Chekhov's Gun, she uses it for full advantage as a power-up, with a side-effect of turning her personality into a total Genki Girl. Being a combat cyborg, she doesn't need a weapon: she fights with bare hands and feet (although the rest of her body carries an assortment of weapons like missiles, disk cutters and shotguns mounted to her heels). Tropes associated with her are:

Tropes exhibited by this character include:

Suzuka-hime (Voiced by Mamiko Noto)

Suzuka.jpg

A Shiki-Oni princess from Kagura Amahara, Suzuka is Kaguya's childhood friend and is currently betrothed to another Oni, Shuten (who's not necessarily evil...), bumping into our heroes and joining them in their endeavor.

She uses an unusual style of dance that lets her command a mecha (just about as tall as the mecha found in the game) called "Jyaki-GUN-Oh" (Devil Gun King), which somehow manages to get itself classified as a Choukijin. As far as beauty goes, Haken calls her a "Midriff Beauty", but Aschen dubs her "Princess Flat" (with good reason); Suzuka doesn't take kindly to the latter. Some of the tropes she adheres to include:

Tropes exhibited by this character include:

Aledy Naash (voiced by Tomokazu Seki)

AledyNaash.jpg

Protagonist for the sequel Endless Frontier EXCEED, Aledy Naash's a Shura warrior sent by his mentor Cindy Bird to investigate the new emergence of Einst-like crystals in the newly formed Endless Frontier, as well as the missing machine Ark-On. He's assisted by the lost princess of Elfetale Neige Hausen.

The only link between him with the main series is that he's a Shura and is a practioner of Kishin Ken. Coupled with the surname Naash, Epileptic Trees occur on whether he's related to the previous Shura King Alkaid Naash or not.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:

Neige Hausen (voiced by Nana Mizuki)

NeigeHausen.jpg

Female protagonist in Endless Frontier EXCEED, Neige's a princess of the fairies in the Elfetale Kingdom, which was wrecked by the Einsts following the first game, now accompanying Aledy in his quest. Later acquires the Fee-Kleid unit.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:

ORCHESTRAL ARMY

Srw-orcharmy.png

The elite unit of Formido Heim, the world that invaded Elfetale and caused the Ten Year War which ended once they offered a ceasefire. Their members are Token Loli Black Magician Girl Kyon Feulion, black-winged valkyrie Henne Valkyria and skull-headed leader Ezel Granada. Utilizing various hi-tech equipment like Light Sabers and combat robots, they now roam around Elfetale and cause the Cross Gates that connects between worlds to be unstable. The bad guys, right? Wrong! Turns out Formido Heim's actually trying to prevent an Einst invasion, who created an imposter of their deceased king, pushing Formido Heim into war. The group's vice-captain, Katze Kotolnos, leaves them and becomes The Atoner.

In EXCEED, they aid the main party as support members. Aschen, having been given an offer to join by Henne at the end of the first game, is currently a member.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:

Elfetale

The denizens of Elfetale, made up of talking animals, fairies and elves. They were the primary targets during the Ten Year War with Formido Heim and thus, were hit the hardest. A majority of the elves fled the onslaught, seeking refuge in the Shura world.

Gagun Laos/Gymnos Basileus

A description of the character goes here.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:
  • Not Quite Dead His soul's currently possessing W05's body.
  • For the Evulz: The entire plot of EXCEED, as well as the motivation of Agrado Heim, revolves around trying to gather enough restless souls to power their own World Tree to cross to another dimension. This was the entire reason why they made war with the Shura, but also the reason why they sought the surviving Einst, brought chaos across the Endless Frontier and attempted to corrupt the Fujisakura. Were they to succeed, they plan to start the process all over again.
    • Thanatos Gambit: They include themselves among the restless souls they plan to harvest.
  • Meaningful Name: Gymnos Basileus means "naked king" in Greek.

A description of the character goes here.

Tropes exhibited by this character include:

Members: Vanar Gand, Hela Gand, Jolm Gand. How they classify as "siblings" despite being entirely different species is a mystery.

Shadow-Mirror

One of the driving forces behind both games, they are the same-named faction from the main series. One of the Shadow Mirror's Neverland class battleships broke in two during a dimensional jump, with the front and rear parts landing in Formido Heim and Lost Herencia, respectively. Their commander androids, the W Numbers, are key characters all games.

There are still 5 W Numbers unaccounted for.

W00

See: Haken Browning.

W03 Pete Pain (Voiced by Yuuichi Nakamura)

A W Number designed to eliminate other W Numbers, tasked with "clean up" and ensure that sensitive information does not fall in enemy hands. He uses his unique command code, PTP, to control both Aschen and a (rebuilt) Cardia. He orders Cardia to self-destruct at a specific point, and intended to kill Haken by ordering Aschen to do the same. A timely intervention by Axel activates DTD, which overrides PTP. Rebuilds various mechs, like Arkgain and the Gespensts, and tries to assassinate W05 but fails. He eventually self-destructs to allow the party into Aggrado Heim (after failing to assassinate them for the last time).

Tropes exhibited by this character include:
  • Marionette Master: PTP = Play The Puppet.
  • Pimp: Invokes this trope unintentionally at one point when he has both Aschen and Cardia flanking him.
  • Standard Status Effects: Appropriate, as he's not really a "fighting" android, and more of a "command" type.
  • Shout-Out: Peter Pan. He and the other W numbers arrived on the ship known as Neverland. The ship's computer is called Tinkerbell. How many times would you like to be beaten on the head?
  • The Atoner

    • Wesent Lichkeit = Materiality\Essentiality.

Beaten by Haken whom Phantom recognized as its master, Phantom shut down the system by itself, allow him to capture it and has Marion modified it with voice control system. After the group defeat Nacht and Abend, Phantom also upload its program to those two and thus allow Haken to command it. Phantom serve Haken faithfully, by start of EXCEED, it is the only robot that still accompany Haken while Nacht and Abend run amok because of Pete Pain using Tinkebell to hack into their system.
