Super Robot Wars Unlimited Generation Alpha/Characters

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

List of original characters by canon. This is a work in progress, feel free to expand it.

Ongoing canons:

A Fistful of SCIENCE!

  • Gratuitous Latin Theme Naming - all units from this canon. Some names overlap with those of Silentium machines, to the confusion of veteran players. This may or may not have been intentional.

Alessandra Langelier

Kamille: I can't feel my soul.

Aethereal Wake


And Though I Walk

Roads Blackwell

Arduus Umbris


Armored Core: forAnswer

Alexei Soras


Astral Frontier

  • Applied Phlebotinum - Kinetic Dispersal Units, which project an area where artificial forces provide a friction that stops kinetic energy. Their use ranges from stopping cargo fired from a linear catapult, protecting machines from physical weaponry unable to move under its own power, and also enable a fully automatic railgun.
  • Easily-Thwarted Alien Invasion - The Irgelion armada that came to conquer Earth four years after Second Impact wasn't expecting as harsh resistance as it ended up facing.
  • Hey, It's That Guy! - The entire cast is this, and in some cases even provides a Mythology Gag going back to their original works.
  • Theme Naming: Prominence Armors have names referring to stars or light in general (Daybreak, Dusk, Corona, Solstice, etc.) Thaumata's codenames for Gaia Vanguards refer to wonders of the world (the Pyramids, Alexandria, the Hanging Gardens, etc.)
  • Throw It In - The only reason Bertrand Herrera ended up with a wife and children was that most of the pictures of Rugal that portrayed him as a decent human being coupled him with Yukari Yakumo. Including Adelheid and Rose after that was just a natural progression.

Christine Diaman

  • Death Seeker - Following her second defeat at Julia's hands. For awhile, anyway...
  • Good Feels Good - Once Christine and Julia finally bond, she admits that it felt nice not trying to talk down to someone because of her misplaced arrogance.
  • Heel Face Turn - Gets one, but not before realizing just how terrible Thaumata is and subsequently having her machine beaten into the ground by Julia.
  • Hypocritical Humor - Christine calls out Lans for his excuse over why he did what he had done, even calling him out on pretty much having a temper tantrum over not getting his way. She doesn't miss the hypocrisy of it all.
  • Hey, It's That Guy! - Played by Noel Vermillion.
  • I Have Many Names - Her machine does at any rate. Its official production name is the Solstice, but during her stint as a member of Thaumata it was called and referred to as the Hanging Gardens.
  • Drunken Declaration of Love - After getting plastered by Luger's special drink, Julia finds Christine and Christine blurts out that she has a crush on her... then promptly tries to steal a kiss from her.
  • Redemption Promotion - Becomes a much better a pilot after joining the protagonists. Justified because she's finally in control of her ego and pride and actually working on honing her skills.
  • Small Name, Big Ego - Initially is extremely overconfident regarding her abilities while downplaying Julia's own. This changes after her second appearance though when Julia physically and emotionally breaks her down.
  • Tsundere - Personality Type A. Prefers to be boisterous and brave, though she ends up enjoying dropping her guard and being friendly at least around Julia.

Julia Richardson (also known as Reilev Kidoreaon)


Star Captain Resnick

Das Leiden

  • Body Horror - The as-of-yet unnamed enemies from this canon are best described as the Thing that takes over mecha and their pilots alike.

Luger Amwolf

Frame Rider Technica

Gregory Winthrop

MarKus Haley

Gundam Ragnarok

Nadia Cross

Zakaria Sabola

Ilka Viridiana


Hua Cheng Kwan

Lost in the Cold


  • Cool Cat - A cat super-soldier mecha pilot.
  • Cute Kitten - Despite being a grown-up cat, evokes the reaction in many characters and their players alike.
  • Odd Friendship - With Samus Aran. A cat and a culturally alien bird woman.
  • The Mind Is a Plaything of the Body - In spite of having human-level intelligence, Vlaska still is just as prone as ever to feline indulgances like pawing at netting.
  • Translator Microbes - Vlaska's collar has a built-in device that translates his non-verbal communication and cat noises into human language. Its vocabulary is limited, especially for English and not Russian.

Project Pre Destiny: The Rainbow Jewel of Hope

  • Artificial Intelligence: CHYPrE and COFFRET, Nanohana and Eri's companions. COFFRET made mention of another AI, COLOGNE, hinting that they're not the only ones.
  • Foreshadowing: During the Idolmaster: Xenoglossia / PreDesu mission, New Fusion hint that there's something more to the Endless Desu machines than what they're using. Hana ends up confusing it as thinking about the battle in Fairy Park.
  • Motion Capture Mecha - The Desu units are like this. And just like the Mobile Fighters, things that hurt the units feedback on them.
  • Caped Mecha - The Desu Tsubomi and Erika are outfitted with "Desu Wings", energy capes that allow flight in atmosphere and space.
  • Expy: Project PreDestiny is pretty much Heartcatch Pretty Cure with GIANT ROBOTS!
  • Magitek: The PreDesu units are powered by the Rainbow Jewel, allowing them to perform all of their attacks and utilize their AI.
  • Palette Swap: The only difference between Nanohana, Eri, Sora and their source material is different hair.
    • Averted with Seiren, who retains her normal hair color.
    • Verbal Tic: CHYPrE and COFFRET carry the same "-desu" tic their counterparts do. HUMMY apparently doesn't have one and POTPOURRI hasn't actually spoken yet.
  • Ass Kicks You - The girls tend to use the "PreDesu Butt Punch" from time to time. It doesn't work at times.

Nanohana "Hana" Himesaki

  • Beware the Nice Ones - Shy and introverted to a fault, the girl has some really repressed anger issues, as Sora found out.
  • Falling Into the Cockpit - Unlike Eri, Sora and Seiren, Hana was thrown into the mix of things almost literally the first day.
  • Hey, It's That Guy! - Played by Tsubomi Hanasaki.
  • Innocent Flower Girl
  • Iron Woobie - The girl's constantly questioning her own skills, takes a few losses way too hard, locks up a lot of her feelings away to the point of breaking down when things go wrong and has attempted or thought about two of her own Ten-Minute Retirement. Instead, she soldiers on because she has Eri waiting for her at the end of every day.
  • Legacy Character - While Hana and Eri are the latest of PreDesu pilots, Hana's grandmother was the first pilot, thus she's taking up the family business, so to speak.
  • Minor Insult Meltdown - Accidentally provoked by Sora after pointing out that she was still weak, Hana's response to a question she was asked was to try to pound Sora's head in. However, it did show Sora that Hana had incredible potential within her.
  • My Greatest Failure - Thanks to Hana's overreacting, she considers not rescuing Imber as this.
    • And now there's the fact that she hid during Adventus' attack on the Chalice, allowing a lot of her close friends to get captured by them.
  • Older Than They Look - Hana is 18, but looks around 14 at most.
  • Rousing Speech - Nanohana gives one to rally Milfeulle, Forte, Chrono and Samus Aran to defeat Fusion.
  • Small Name, Big Ego - Tsukasa calls Hana out on this when he comes to realize that she's been trying to make everything about her.
  • Walking the Earth - After a few incidents that's left Hana injured physically and emotionally, Dita's taken her and Sora for a little walk... around China.
  • What the Hell, Hero? - Alexei snaps at Hana after spotting her screwing up again, letting her know to stop treating this as a game or people will die.
    • And newcomer Seiren lets Hana have it after finding out she ran and hid while Eri and Sora were defending the ship against Lucas' Automatons.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy - Thanks to her sheltered lifestyle, she holds on to the belief that things will be okay and she can save everything. Y'know, Magical Girl Tropes. Too bad she's living in a post-apocalyptic world where Festum and Invaders are waiting to slaughter everyone. She's given a major wake up call thanks to Seiren and Kei.

Eri Kurumu

  • Crazy Prepared - To levels bordering on OCD, complete with explosive candy and even hiding a razor wire inside a false scar on her back.
  • Deus Exit Machina - Eri tries to pull this off towards Hana and let her be a hero without any real help. However, a few people have told her to stop pussyfooting and just let loose.
  • Genki Girl - And how! However, recent events are showing that this is more and more of a disguise...
  • Last Stand - ends up defending the captain of the Chalice against Lucas' robotic Mooks before falling and getting captured.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man! / Motivational Kiss - When Hana attempts to quit the PreDesus after reuniting with Eri, Eri responds by slapping her across the face, reassuring her that she wouldn't want any other partner but her, then gives her one long kiss.
  • Older Than They Look - she's 24, looks around 14 at most but tells everyone she's 18. She has a good reason for that, though...
  • Hey, It's That Guy! - Played by Erika Kurumi.
  • Stepford Smiler / Broken Ace - Turns out Eri was a pilot before her time with Hana. Something happened that rendered her original machine inoperable and has hurt her dearly.
  • Scars Are Forever - Eri ends up showing Alexi a number of burn and shrapnel scars across her back and body from aforementioned hidden incident.
    • That reason has now been revealed - a Desu pilot, a third Kurumu sister, inflicted the injury on Eri when she was younger. When Charlotte asks why she doesn't tell Hana this, Eri mentions she doesn't want Hana to worry over it.

Sora Myoudouin (also known as Lira Roliaron)

  • Big Eater
  • Canon Immigrant - In a sense. Sora's an Irgelion, from the Astral Frontier canon.
  • Human Alien
  • Hey, It's That Guy! - Played by Itsuki Myoudouin.
  • My Greatest Failure - Despite being there to fight Lucas head on, Sora's unable to rescue Fate when she's captured and be there when Eri's captured, too.
  • Missed the Call - It turns out that Sora was at Fairy Park when Sasodina, Cobra and Kumojack attacked along with Ridley. She couldn't sortie, though, because of problems with her machine and Irgelion reflexes.
  • Only Sane Man - Her teammates include a girl with repressed anger issues and a girl who's body is stuck younger than she should be and is has problems of her own.
  • Remember the New Guy? - Played straight with Eri, as she had trained with her prior to the canon's start. Averted with Nanohana, who has no idea who she is.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser - In the past, she was like this. Werter makes the mistake of thinking she was still like this, but Sora corrects him.

Seiren Kurokawa

  • Calling the Old Man Out - CHY Pr E does this, tired of Seiren breaking down Hana after just arriving, pointing out everything she had done prior to Seiren's arrival. Seiren points out that they wouldn't be having this conversation if Hana had turned in reports like she should have. Granted, she didn't really know.
  • Please Don't Leave Me - heartbreakingly done towards Laura as she and Devon sacrifice themselves to stop the SE invasion. It burns her badly.
  • Hey, It's That Guy! - played by Ellen Kurokawa
  • I Am Not Here To Make Friends - much to Nanohana's frustration.
  • Shapeshifting - goes from human to cat. Kinda regrets it now.
  • The Ace - She's apparently much more older than the three other PreDesus and obviously holds a lot of prestige over the other girls.
    • Broken Ace - Like the rest of her teammates, she's haunted by something that happened in her past and she hates the idea of being pitied... and Nanohana's attempts to open up.
  • Tsundere - Type 1 variant. She outright refuses to accept Nanohana or Sora's hands in friendship, considers being a Pre Desu akin to being a soldier and has all but closed up her heart to everyone... except for Laura, whom she willingly opens up to. For the first time in a long time.

Wayward Signet: Origins


Atticus Crowley

Completed Canons:


  • Climax Boss - At least so far, with Lucas attacking the protagonists during re-entry and necessitating fighting while riding the ship down into the atmosphere, Jeremy fighting the heroes against the backdrop of the recently renovated Hoover Dam with an audience of members of Britannia, Federation, and Adventus, and the DR RGNK fight at Casablanca, Morroco during a performance. The missions have also been milestones, marking the 20th, 30th, and 40th mission each.
    • Averted with mission 50 - Adventus units were used, but Yolanda was only involved with fighting the Granzon off screen.
    • And again with mission 58 - Yolanda finally appears there but it wasn't on a 10th mission.
  • Deflector Shields - Three of the Adventus Generals have their units armed with high powered barriers, apparently even more powerful than the Granzon's
  • Four Is Death - Four Generals
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad - The Generals seen so far are certainly colorful enough.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist - Their ultimate goal is for humanity to cease using giant robots... while using giant robots to achieve that.


  • Affably Evil - Has a great love of music and holds concerts for people. Also has no objection with putting subliminal messages in said music and making people who listen to it do whatever he wants
  • Hey, It's That Guy! - Played by Beat. MC Low-Key's played by DJ Professor K.
  • Loud of War
  • Music for Courage - In spite of the fact his music can control people, RGNK primarily uses it as a means to help people feel good about themselves living in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, and in fact joined up with Adventus to have the means to travel wherever he wanted to.
  • Theme Naming - Norse Mythology.
    • Low-Key is "Loki" written phonetically.
    • RGNK is pronounced "Ragnarok"
    • RGNK's machine, the Skidblanir, is named after a giant boat in Norse Mythology that could be folded up and carried around. The Skidblanir mech can unfold into an entire soundstage for RGNK to do performances.
    • The brand of music equipment is Jallerhorn, named after a trumpet used to signal Asgradians.
  • Sidekick - Has one in MC Low-Key.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here - He hints to Gentarou that he wants to do this, but for some reason, he can't.
  • Throw It In - The original name was going to be DJ RGNK. However, after a typo the mods decided that DR sounded better.

Jeremy Gatsby

  • Badass Bookworm - A historian by trade. Still a very good fighter, and was able to severely damage multiple White Chalice machines single-handedly with his own machine still functioning in the end.
  • Barrier Warrior - His machine, the Hyperion, can produce extremely powerful shields which he can shape however he wishes. Yolanda and RGNK have similar shields, but Jeremy uses them not only for defense but for combat as well.
  • Bling of War - Goes into battle not only wearing golden armor, but the Hyperion is gold as well. Unsurprising, really.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal - Unlike Lucas and DR RGNK's machines, Jeremy's was severely damaged during the fight, losing most of its limbs. However, it's no problem to him since he can just make barriers in the shape of said limbs to replace them.
  • Hey, It's That Guy! - Played by Gemini Defteros.
  • Large Ham
  • Meaningful Name - Hyperion was the Greek Titan of light. His machine, being gold, is downright shiny.
  • Named After Somebody Famous - Subverted. His real last name is "Cunningham". He just adopted "Gatsby" because it sounded cool.
  • Not in This For Your Revolution - Could not care either way if mecha become a thing of the past or not. Still joined Adventus out of a desire to chronicle their exploits for the sake of future generations.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni - Red to Lucas's Blue.
  • Shout-Out - Has quite a few to Yang Wen-Li.
  • Token Good Teammate - Uses Adventus's resources primarily to renovate what few historical landmarks weren't completely destroyed by Second Impact. Also formally challenged the Chalice pilots to a battle and fought fairly, and he's voiced opposition to DR RGNK's use of subliminal messages and mind control.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness - Turns out Lans had a powerful explosive installed in the Hyperion and when he lost a second time, Lans detonated it, depriving Jeremy of joining the heroes.

Lans Chretien

  • Big Bad - The leader of Adventus.
  • Hey, It's That Guy! - Played by Kazuki Sanada.
  • I Control My Minions Through... - It seems that Lans has various ways to bring his men in line. Many of them are controlled through his Agenda to purge all mecha from the Earth and the population sees Adventus as Being the Lesser Evil, despite the current state of the world. DR RGNK, Lucas and Jeremy, though, are Not in This For Your Revolution. Instead, he has things that they feel the Chalice could never hope to have.
  • Improvised Weapon - HALO was never meant for actual front-line fighting. However, Lans was familiar with the machine and was able to make the most of its limited arsenal.
  • Old Shame - According to Jeremy, Lans was part of Project HALO, the project that created the robot that accidentally caused Second Impact. However, how much he's involved with it is unknown and even still, it's enough of a secret that Philip can't look it up.
    • Now it stands revealed that Lans had a hand in creating HALO. Even more, when the unit crashed to Earth, Lans found it first and kept it at the Adventus base, activating it in an attempt to stop the protagonists.
  • Redemption Equals Death - Realizing the he still has a chance to save everything, Lans ends up self destructing HALO in an attempt to stop it from firing its weapon. It only manages to slow down HALO for a few moments, unfortunately.
  • The End Is Nigh - According to Bian Zoldark, Lans started out as one of these.
  • The Leader - Created Adventus, natch.
  • The Worf Effect - His first act onscreen subjected Bian to this. The Valsion is plenty powerful; the problem was simply that HALO was stronger still.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means - Lans envisioned a world without robots, which gave him the right to amass an army to stop the rest of the world from using them themselves. When they find out that Lans was also angry that other people were busy making their own power sources and robots, a few of the players call him out on this.
  • Villain with Good Publicity
  • Visionary Villain - Envisions a world without mecha... despite the fact that, without them, the world would be an even bigger Crapsack World.

Lucas Damien

Yolanda Ysmir

Still Not Safe


  • Combat Pragmatist - Both when fighting on-foot and against mecha sized opponents.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen - went through this during her time on the L-Boat to the point of nearly being a Noble Jerkass.
  • Discard and Draw - Following the canon finale, Devon's powers changed significantly, with her gaining some new abilities while losing others like being able to Shift.
  • Does Not Like Shoes
  • Good Is Not Nice
  • Henshin Hero
  • Heroic Sacrifice - She and Laura end up bonding with an actual SE to stop others from appearing and get the others back home.
  • Hey, It's That Guy! - Played by Aya Brea.
  • Ineffectual Loner - Being Genre Savvy to an extent, she is aware of this trope and does her best to fight off the ineffectual part. The loner part fits like a glove.
  • Jerkass - Quite intentionally too.
  • Kiss Kiss Slap - When Devon finally returns, she proceeds to head for Cheng's room. When he goes to hold her, she beats the shit out of him for losing faith in her safety.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero - At one point, Devon's desire to one-up Samus leads to her throwing an Id Beast at a Metroid in the hopes they would kill each other. The Metroid simply ate it, took on vampiric qualities, and became promoted to a literal Boos In Mooks Clothing for the mission, with Devon very sheepishly trying to avoid the subject afterwards.
  • Only One Name - At least until before her marriage. Following it, at least in the mission write-ups she's listed as Devon Kwan.
  • Rebellious Spirit - Often breaks the rules just because they're there. Which more than once put her in trouble.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely - usually wears really old and tattered jeans and a t-shirt, and pays zero attention to her appearance. And yet she looks great in a wedding dress.
  • The Ubermensch - fascinated by ideas of Friedrich Nietzsche. The original version, not the Flanderization propagated by some people.
  • Unknown Rival - very jealous of Samus Aran, due to the latter being extremely capable and independent physically, with absolute control over emotions and an iron will - qualities that Devon lacks but desires. Samus does not notice nor care much.
    • No longer unknown, as Devon decided to tell Samus of her desire to surpass her. Samus seems to still not care.
  • Wacky Marriage Proposal - While Cheng suffers from a massive Heroic BSOD, Devon approaches him and flat out tells him "Marry me.". It snaps him out of the effect and he does accept. And when Devon tells everyone, they're in a LOT of shock.

Frank Symes

Laura Ericks

  • The Chick
  • Convenient Coma - Justified, since both the "falling into" and "waking up from" parts were caused by supernatural circumstances involving her own powers. And Dantoinne's machinations in latter's case.
  • Discard and Draw - Like Devon, Laura's powers radically changed after her canon finale, which helped her offensive powers be less impractical.
  • Everybody's Dead, Dave - She woke up from a 3 year coma only to discover that her whole team died in the meantime. Except Devon.
  • Henshin Hero
  • Hey, It's That Guy! - Played by Naruko Anjo.
  • Lipstick Lesbian
  • Reality Warper - Her powers are a very limited form of this.
  • Superhero Packing Heat - her offensive abilities are limited and impractical. Solution? Carry an assault rifle and use her powers to enhance the shots' effectiveness.
  • The Mole - Sadly, she had no idea she was like this and when it's revealed she takes rather harshly.
