Jump to: navigation, search

The Accel World light novel, manga and anime series features a large cast of characters created by Reki Kawahara and illustrated by HiMA. Set in Tokyo in 2046 when devices known as Neuro-Linkers have enabled fully integrated augmented reality, the main character Haruyuki Arita is offered a virtual reality massive multiplayer online (VRMMO) fighting game called Brain Burst by Kuroyukihime, the student council vice-president at his school. Together with Kuroyukihime and his other friends, Haruyuki fights as a Burst Linker to ultimately attain level 10, the highest attainable level, and meet the creator of Brain Burst to learn its true purpose.

Nega Nebulus (Black Legion)[edit]

The main characters are members of Nega Nebulus, also known as the Black Legion.

Haruyuki Arita[edit]

Haruyuki Arita (有田 春雪 Arita Haruyuki?) is the main protagonist of Accel World. Also known as Haru by his close friends, he is a short and fat boy with low self-esteem until he meets Kuroyukihime. Although he is generally smart and careful when it comes to everyday life, Haru tends to get reckless while protecting Kuroyukihime. He views her as a mentor, friend, and lover simultaneously, which has given him the utmost respect and loyalty toward her and her army. His non-accelerated avatar is a small pink pig that was originally forced on him by his bully, only keeping it because Kuroyukihime finds it "cute." While in Akibahara, Blood Leopard gives him a different avatar to fit in, taking the form of a small pink lizard.

Haru's Brain Burst avatar, Silver Crow (シルバー・クロウ Shirubā Kurou?), has a tall, thin, fragile metallic frame that is completely devoid of weapons, forcing Haru to fight barehanded. His avatar was created by his desires to be thinner and fly away into the sky in order to escape his miserable life. The avatar possesses a mouth underneath its visor, allowing Silver Crow to eat while in the game world. Silver Crow is the first and only avatar with the ability to fly, sprouting wings on its back when its special ability is activated. Lacking in both physical strength and defensive capability, Silver Crow is dependent on Haru's squash-honed speed and reflexes in order to survive fights. Silver Crow's default finishing move is a basic headbutt, typically ineffective in most circumstances. Haru eventually learns how to utilize the Incarnate System to focus his willpower, gaining the ability to form energy blades from the bracers on Silver Crow's forearms, a technique he names "Laser Sword." For a period of time, Silver Crow has the Disaster Armor Enhanced Armament and becomes the 6th Chrome Disaster. In this form, he can predict the attacks of his opponents and use all the abilities of previous Chrome Disasters. In one battle, he can partially summon the uncorrupted form of The Destiny, which is one of the Seven Arcs used to form the Chrome Disaster Armament that was created by Chrome Falcon. Haruyuki is voiced by Yūki Kaji in Japanese and Erik Kimerer in English.


Kuroyukihime (黒雪姫?, lit. Black Snow Princess) is the leader of the Nega Nebulus legion. Her real name is unknown (although Sky Raker calls her "Sacchan"). Her pseudonym is Japanese word play with Snow White (Shiroyukihime (白雪姫?, lit. White Snow Princess)).[improper synthesis?] Beautiful and popular, she is also the Student Council Vice-President at Umesato Junior High School. She has been a Burst Linker since she was eight years old. Kuroyukihime was formerly the Black King, although she was driven into hiding after beheading the first Red King, Red Rider, while trying to defeat the other kings to reach level 10. She values Haru as more than a subordinate and is often the voice of reason to him when he is willing to go to extremes to protect her. Prior to her hospitalization, she confesses to Haru that she fell in love with him. Her non-accelerated avatar is her real-world self dressed in black and sporting red and black butterfly wings. She is estranged from her family since she injured her sister, who is also the White King, out of anger after learning that she was tricked by her.

Her Brain Burst avatar is Black Lotus (ブラック・ロータス Burakku Rōtasu?), also known as "World End," a slender robot with a feminine form which features limbs ending in sharp blades. These weapons instantly cut anything they touch due to the Absolute Cutting Property the avatar possesses, which has the side effect of permanently removing whatever is cut from an opponent's avatar. However, the blades have a frail lateral portion that breaks after receiving too much damage. To compensate for this weakness, Kuroyukihime developed a technique she calls "Soft Act". Black Lotus has three special abilities: Death by Barraging; Death by Embracing, which was used on Red Rider; and Death by Piercing, a one-hit-kill direct attack. She also has two incarnate system skills: Vorpal Strike and Star Burst Stream. Lotus also displays an ability called Overdrive: Mode Green, which causes the purple parts of its body to turn green and increase its speed and attack power for a limited time. Lacking feet, Black Lotus hovers slightly off the ground via air jets on the legs, with which it is able to achieve incredible speeds. Kuroyukihime is voiced by Sachika Misawa in Japanese and Kira Buckland in English.

Takumu Mayuzumi[edit]

Takumu Mayuzumi (黛 拓武 Mayuzumi Takumu?) is Haru's childhood friend and Chiyuri's boyfriend at the start of the series, nicknamed "Taku." Being smart and athletic, he attends a prestigious school. His non-accelerated avatar is the tin man. Initially, he abuses the enhanced reflexes he obtains while accelerated to have an advantage in the kendo tournaments he attends in real life. After Kuroyukihime is hospitalized, Takumu attempts to assassinate her until he is stopped by Haru, who convinces him to join forces. After confessing to Chiyu about what he's done, it seems they've broken up. Despite that he is waiting to see if Chiyu would get back together with him.[1] He is a mentor figure to Haru due to his advanced knowledge of the Accelerated World. After teaming up with the Nega Nebulus, he transfers to Umesato Junior High School and begins wearing glasses despite the Neuro-Linker's ability to correct vision problems, wanting to see the world through his own eyes. Takumu was bullied throughout elementary school, possessing a scar on his neck from the beatings he would receive from the kendo team.

His Brain Burst avatar, Cyan Pile (シアン・パイル Shian Pairu?), features a large frame reminiscent of a knight. Its primary weapon is large pile driver Enhanced Armament mounted on the right forearm, which is able to extend its spike to incredible distances. Upon learning the Incarnate System, Taku obtains the ability to transform it into a huge sword, which he calls "Cyan Blade". Cyan Pile also has access to Splash Stinger, a series of needle guns hidden under the chest armor. Cyan Pile's special ability is "Lightning Cyan Spike," which charges the pile driver weapon with electrical energy before firing. Takumu is voiced by Shintaro Asanuma in Japanese and Lucien Dodge in English.

Chiyuri Kurashima[edit]

Chiyuri Kurashima (倉嶋 千百合 Kurashima Chiyuri?) is Haru and Takumu's childhood friend. At the start of the series she is dating Takumu, but after Haru and Takumu confess about the Cyan Pile incident they seem to have broken up. It is implied that she cares for Haru as more than a friend. Her non-accelerated avatar is a catgirl. After Takumu and Haru come clean with her and tell her about the Accelerated World, she demands the program for herself, wanting to show her friends how to enjoy the game and not take it too seriously. Fearing the game is tearing them apart, her main goal as a Burst Linker is to rekindle the close friendship she, Taku, and Haru once shared as children. Kuroyukihime wonders if she is mentally strong enough to use Brain Burst, but the group eventually gives in and gives her the program. To her friends' surprise, the program installs successfully.

Her Brain Burst avatar, Lime Bell (ライム・ベル Raimu Beru?), appears as a witch girl with an Enhanced Armament resembling a large bell containing a clock face replacing the left forearm. Her avatar was created from her desire to return to the life she had when she, Haru, and Takumu had a very close friendship. Lime Bell's special ability is known as "Citron Call," a healing ability which can fully recover any Duel Avatar it targets. However, in the final battle with Dusk Taker, Chiyuri reveals the true ability of Citron Call: to reverse time on the target so that the damage never existed. This also applies to the target's special abilities as well, demonstrated by Lime Bell reversing time on Dusk Taker so that he never took Silver Crow's wings. Lime Bell is the third avatar with a healing ability, the first being one of the current kings and the second having retired after uninstalling Brain Burst due to the fact that healers are coveted and fought over in Accel World. In Vol 15, she used IS on her own due to her overwhelming feelings of love for her friends. Her situation is similar to how Chrome Falcon used Negative IS due to intense anger and despair. Chiyuri is voiced by Aki Toyosaki in Japanese and Michelle T. Hseih in English.

Aqua Current[edit]

Associated with the element of water, Aqua Current (アクア・カレント Akua Karento?) (real name Akira Himi (氷見 あきら Himi Akira?)) is a Burst Linker who works as a "bodyguard" tag match partner for players level 2 and under. Initially, her gender is unknown. After Haru accidentally trips over her bag, he as well as the customers in the dining area of their meeting place distinguish her as female. Her avatar on the non-accelerated network is a bespectacled weasel with a necktie. Her duel avatar is Aqua Current, a mass of water with a feminine form, possessing properties of pure water such as being an excellent insulator against electrical attacks. Aqua Current is endowed with great skill and experience, proving the rumors about her helping players with dangerously low Burst Point levels.

Aqua Current has been a Burst Linker for a long time, but refuses to level up in order to continue her work. Originally one of Nega Nebulus' "Elements", Aqua Current fell prey of a monster in the Unlimited Field who reduced her level to 1. Her whereabouts after the battle alongside Silver Crow are unknown, as is her real world identity after selectively erasing herself from Haru's memory with her Incarnate System ability. In volume 12, she saves Silver Crow from Argon Array and begins a duel with her. Aqua is voiced by Kana Ueda in Japanese and Trinity Lee in English.

Other members[edit]

In addition to Aqua Current, there are other Burst Linkers who serve Black Lotus until her disappearance. They include:

  • Sky Raker (スカイ・レイカー Sukai Reikā?) (real name Fuuko Kurasaki (倉崎 楓子 Kurasaki Fūko?)) is a retired Burst Linker associated with the element of wind. She is also the vice-commander of Nega Nebulus. Sky Raker is Ash Roller's "parent" (the one who gave him Brain Burst) and the only person in Accel World he shows respect towards. Before Silver Crow existed she was known as "the person closest to the sky" in the Accelerated World, gaining the nicknames "Astro", "ICBM" and "Icarus". She became obsessed with the desire to fly and as a result was abandoned by her friends and "parent." Eventually, she gets the help of her only remaining friend and master Black Lotus to reach level 8. Having spent several level up bonus points trying to obtain the ability to fly, she eventually asks Black Lotus to cut off her avatar's legs to reduce her avatar's weight and increase her will. She is introduced to Silver Crow by Ash Roller in the Unlimited Neutral Field to help him control his willpower and use the Incarnate System to fly without his wings. After meeting her in the real world, Haru realizes she has mechanical prosthetic legs. Sky Raker later rejoins Nega Nebulus before the Hermes’ Cord Vertical Race and regains her legs near the end of the race.
Her Brain Burst avatar appears as a silver-blue robot modeled after her real world self, lacking legs below the knee and confined to a wheelchair she powers through the Incarnate System. She keeps the wheelchair even after she regains her legs. Sky Raker is one of the only Brain Burst avatars that wears clothes, in her case a wide-brimmed summer hat and dress. Sky Raker owns an Enhanced Armament known as Gale Thruster, a rocket pack that, while not granting true flight, temporarily allows for incredibly long jumps and midair dashes. She lends the Gale Thruster to Haru to help him regain Silver Crow's wings. Later on, Silver Crow shows her that the Gale Thruster is for flying in space as wings become useless without air. Sky Raker is voiced by Aya Endo in Japanese and Johanna Luis in English.
  • Ardor Maiden (アーダー・メイデン?) (real name Utai Shinomiya (四埜宮 謡 Shinomiya Utai?) ) is a level 7 Burst Linker associated with the element of fire. She's a fourth grader attending Matsunoki Elementary. Her avatar has a Japanese priestess-like figure and has the ability to purify objects with parasitic attributes, she also possesses a powerful wide range Incarnate System ability, however it takes a long time to activate due to its complexity.
  • Graphite Edge (グラファイト・エッジ Gurafaito Ejji?) is a level 8 Burst Linker associated with the element of earth. His true name and current whereabouts are a mystery. He is a swordsman with the Enhanced Armament Twin Swords and his skills in close combat are equal or even superior to Black Lotus, despite his defenses are weak, true to his namesake.

Other legions and organizations[edit]

Prominence (Red Legion)[edit]

The members of Prominence include:

  • Yuniko Kōzuki (上月 由仁子 Kōzuki Yuniko?) is a Year-Five student with a fiery temper and intelligence that belies her age, "Niko," as she prefers to be called, is the second Red King after Red Rider's defeat. She is introduced when she breaks into Haru's house and tries to disguise herself as Tomoko Saitou (サイトウトモコ Saitō Tomoko?), Haru's second cousin. This plan fails when Haru looks through his grandfather's online photo albums and finds that Niko looks nothing like Tomoko. Niko was abandoned by her parents and attends a school for abandoned children. Niko displays tsundere qualities, one moment being very sweet and affectionate and the next angry and confrontational.[volume & issue needed]
Her Brain Burst avatar is Scarlet Rain (スカーレット・レイン Sukāretto Rein?), a small red robot with the appearance of a young girl, armed with a laser pistol typically stored on the hip. She is the current Red King and her nickname is "The Immobile Fortress" thanks to her special ability, which summons her Enhanced Armament, a massive stationary artillery unit with which Scarlet Rain connects. Though unable to move and slow to turn, the artillery unit is outfitted with scores of weapons, giving it enough firepower to effortlessly take out legions of opponents from all directions. Scarlet Rain possesses two Incarnate System abilities: the Over Ray, a flamethrower attack, and the ability to teleport short distances. Yuniko Kozuki is voiced by Rina Hidaka in Japanese and Sarah Williams in English.
  • Blood Leopard (ブラッド・レパード Buraddo Repādo?) (real name Mihaya Kakei (掛居 美早 Kakei Mihaya?)), the vice-commander of Prominence. She works as a waitress at a cake shop that also serves as a secret base for Prominence. She is usually seen wearing a maid outfit that she wears for work and rides a motorcycle. Leopard, as she prefers to be called, is cold, blunt, and distant, though she has a sarcastic sense of humor. Her Brain Burst avatar is level 6 and has the Shape Change ability which allows her to transform her avatar back and forth into a four legged configuration, along "Vital Bite" that drains the life gauge of the enemy to replenish hers and "Mental Bite" which does so with the special gauge. Her non-accelerated avatar is an anthropomorphic red-furred leopard woman wearing a leather bodysuit. She develops a rivalry with Sky Raker for unknown reasons. She tends to speak in punctuated gaming terms, such as "K", "GJ" (Good job), and "NP" (No Problem). Blood Leopard is voiced by Ayako Kawasumi in Japanese and Erika Harlacher in English.
  • Cherry Rook (チェリー・ルーク Cherī Rūku?), also known as the fifth Chrome Disaster, is a very close friend of Yuniko, becoming her "parent" after learning how much she loves video games. After being out-leveled by Yuniko and learning that he was moving out of town, he accepted the Disaster Armor Enhanced Armament from the Yellow King. He was defeated by Yuniko with the aid of Nega Nebulus using the Judgement Blow. His defeat passes the Disaster Armor to Silver Crow, causing him to eventually become the next Chrome Disaster. Cherry Rook is voiced by Mikako Takahashi in Japanese and Amanda C. Miller in English.
  • Red Rider (レッド・ライダー Reddo Raidā?), was the original Red King, but was executed by Black Lotus before the events of the series. Red Rider had the ability to craft powerful weapons to use in combat, and it is implied that he had a romantic relationship with the Purple King, Purple Thorn. Rider was an advocate of continuing the peace treaty between the Kings, a mindset which led to Black Lotus beheading him with the "Death by Embracing" technique, which subsequently took all of his Burst Points and forcefully uninstalled the program, leading to Black Lotus' exile and setting into motion the events of the series. Red Rider is voiced by Kenjirō Tsuda in Japanese and Keith Silverstein in English.

Crypt Cosmic Circus (Yellow Legion)[edit]

  • Yellow Radio (イエロー・レディオ Ierō Redio?), also known "Radioactive Disturber", serves as the Yellow King in the legion. After the fourth Chrome Disaster was defeated, he took the Disaster Armor and gave it to Cherry Rook expecting that he would be able to break the nonviolence treaty between the kings by giving him the "legal" right to eliminate one member from the Red legion, ultimately going after Scarlet Rain. His Brain Burst avatar appears as a court jester with long arms wielding a scepter as a weapon. His Brain Burst avatar's special ability is Futile Fortune Wheel, most likely an illusion attack. He uses illusions and trickery as the basis for his fighting style. Yellow Radio is voiced by Akira Ishida in Japanese and Vic Mignogna in English.
  • Saxe Lauder (サックス・ローダー Sakkusu Rōdā?) is one of the Burst Linkers who participates in the ambush against Scarlet Rain in the Unlimited Neutral Field. Saxe is voiced by Hiroaki Tajiri in Japanese and Kyle Hebert in English.

Great Wall (Green Legion)[edit]

  • Green Grandee (グリーン・グランデ Gurīn Gurande?) serves as the Green King in the legion. He specializes in absolute defense, which allows him to deal double the damage he receives from attackers earned him the title "Invincible". It is said he gained most of his Burst Points by hunting "enemies" in the Unlimited Neutral Field by himself. He exchanges Burst Points into item cards and distribute them to "enemies" for other players to hunt and pick up. He has only lost duels due to time out. He has witnessed the destruction of four generations of Chrome Disaster. His large shield is one of the Seven Arcs, 'gamma' The Strife. He is also one of the Originators and one of the few players who knows the existence of other accelerated worlds.
  • Ash Roller (アッシュ・ローラー Asshyu Rōrā?) is Silver Crow's first opponent and Sky Raker's "child," often referring to her as "master." Ash Roller is rude, vulgar, and highly aggressive except when in Sky Raker's presence, where he adopts a highly respectful demeanor. His motorcycle, an Enhanced Armament, is his primary weapon, means of transportation, and source of strength. Without the bike, Ash Roller is effectively powerless. Ash's real identity is Rin Kusakabe (日下部 綸 Kusakabe Rin?), who has a crush on Haruyuki since her defeat in the duels and even confesses to him. Ash Roller is voiced by Kenichi Suzumura in Japanese and Ben Diskin in English.

Leoniz (Blue Legion)[edit]

  • Blue Knight (ブルー・ナイト Burū Naito?), also known as "Vanquisher", "Holy Sword" and "Legend Slayer", serves as the Blue King in the legion. His large sword is one of the Seven Arcs, 'alpha' The Impulse. Although he is Cyan Pile's original Legion Master, for some reason he decides to not apply the Judgement Blow on him when he joins Nega Nebulus. He is Red Rider's best friend and also one of the Originators. Blue Knight is voiced by Takahiro Sakurai in Japanese and Kaiji Tang in English.
  • Cobalt Blade (コバルト・ブレード Kobaruto Burēdo?) and Manganese Blade (マンガン・ブレード Mangan Burēdo?) are twin female Burst Linkers who are close aide of the Blue King, both level 7. Their duel avatars have a warrior appearance. They are loyal to the Blue King and they both have a crush on him. In the past, Sky Raker once hanged them from the top of the Tokyo Government Office which humiliated them. Cobalt Blade is voiced by Misato Fukuen in Japanese and Amanda C. Miller in English., while Manganese Blade is voiced by Kanako Kondō in Japanese and Lauren Landa in English.

Oscillatory Universe (White Legion)[edit]

  • White Cosmos (ホワイト・コスモス Howaito Kosumosu?), also known as "Transient Eternity", serves as the White King in the legion and is the main antagonist of Accel World. She is Kuroyukihime's older sister by one year in the real world and her "parent" in the Accelerated World. Her Brain Burst avatar possesses a recovery ability, one of only three in the history of Brain Burst with such a power. She also has the power to become fully invisible. She also possesses one of the Seven Arcs and is also one of the Originators. As the series progress, she is revealed to be the leader of the Acceleration Research Society. She is also the one who manipulated Black Lotus to behead Red Rider, which put a strain in their relationship.
  • Ivory Tower (アイボリー・タワー Aiborī Tawā?) is the representative for White Cosmos during the meetings involving the Kings of each legion.

Acceleration Research Society[edit]

The Acceleration Research Society is a secret organization who get involved in the Brain Burst game using unconventional methods. Its members include:

  • Seiji Noumi (能美 征二 Nōmi Seiji?)
A first year student at Umesato Junior High School, a Burst Linker (though he detests the term) and member of the Kendo Club who abuses the Physical Burst command to cheat. Seiji believes he is above other people and is disgusted by those he deems "lower" than himself to the point that he will clean his hands with a handkerchief if he touches someone. Seiji blackmails Haruyuki and Chiyuri and takes Silver Crow's wings in an attempt to force the two into becoming his "pets." He is eventually double-crossed by Chiyuri, who temporarily joins forces with him just to level up enough to perfect her abilities and return Silver Crow's wings. He lost the resulting sudden death fight and has Brain Burst forcefully uninstalled, taking his memories of having the program with it, thus proving Kuroyukihime's theory that Burst Linkers who have the program uninstalled also lose any memories of ever having the program.
Seiji's Brain Burst avatar, Dusk Taker (ダスク・テイカー Dasuku Teikā?), appears as a featureless black humanoid with a large red orb in place of a face. His avatar was created from his desire to take everything back that his older brother Yuichi Noumi (能美 優一 Nōmi Yūichi?) stole from him. Though lacking in significant combat ability on its own, Dusk Taker has an ability known as "Demonic Commandeer," the power to steal any finishing move, reinforced exterior, or ability from other Burst Linkers. This ability has no time limit, meaning Dusk Taker can possess up to three stolen abilities for as long as he desires. So long as Dusk Taker possesses an ability, the Burst Linker he took it from will be unable to use it. Using this ability, he has managed to incorporate body parts and weapons from other Burst Linkers into his own avatar, including a large scissor weapon on the right arm and a set of red tentacles replacing his left arm. Dusk Taker is also able to utilize the Incarnate System to create claws made of bright purple energy. Seiji is voiced by Sanae Kobayashi in Japanese and Amanda C. Miller in English.
  • Rust Jigsaw (ラスト・ジグソー Rasuto Jigusō?) is a level 6 Burst Linker that lays traps to fend off melee type avatars while picking them off with long-range attacks and makes use of the Incarnate System to rust and corrode his targets. Like Dusk Taker, his name does not appear on the challenge list by using the now banned Brain Implant Chip. Rust Jigsaw is voiced by Satoshi Hino in Japanese and Sean Chiplock in English.
  • Sulfur Pot (サルファ・ポット Sarufa Potto?) is a Burst Linker who dives into Okinawa while being in Tokyo using a backdoor program. Sulfur Pot has the ability to tame enemies with his Enhanced Armament Mystical Reins, which he loses when he is defeated. The item winds up in the hands of Black Lotus, a gift from the Okinawan Burst Linkers. Like Dusk Taker, his name does not appear on the challenge list. Sulfur Pot is voiced by Nobuyuki Hiyama in Japanese and Derek Stephen Prince in English.
  • Wolfram Cerberus (ウルフラム・サーベラス Urufuramu Sāberasu?) is a level 1 Burst Linker with triple personality. He defeats Silver Crow in their first battle. He cooperated with the group to help with his personalities. During the second battle, he lost due to Silver Crow finding out his weakness. During the third battle, he overcame his mistakes, but Silver Crow's new move let him have the upper hand. When Argon Array interfered and trashed Ash Roller in the process, he defended Silver Crow; only to be knocked away by her. In vol 13, he was asked by Haru to meet with him in the real world. However when he showed up, he ran off the last second.
His abilities change based on which of his personalities is active. When his second or the third personality activates, one of his shoulder armor pads opens and acts as the head. His first personality has the abiliy to become the strongest material and cannot be harmed by melee attacks but also makes his vulnerable to throws. His second personality has the ability to bite the opponent and temporarily copy the abilities of the opponent in the process. His third personality is Wolf Down, a copy of Dusk Taker and has the same "Demonic Commandeer" ability.
  • Black Vise (ブラック・バイス Burakku Baisu?) is a level 8 Burst Linker, one of the Originators, and the vice-commander of the Acceleration Research Society. He has the ability to hide in the shadows and has a deceleration ability. His avatar's body, made up of a series of black panels in a roughly humanoid shape, is able to separate panels to use as shields and offensive weapons. The color black is already used by Black Lotus so Black Vise is not the official name of the avatar. Black Vise is voiced by Nobuo Tobita in Japanese and Matt Mercer in English.
  • Argon Array (アルゴン・アレイ Arugon Arei?) is a level 8 Burst Linker, also known as "Quad Eyes Analyst". She has an ability to see the status of other avatars. She fires laser as her main attack and uses flash light to temporarily block the eyesight of other players.

Other players[edit]

  • Crimson Kingbolt (クリムゾン・キングボルト Kurimuzon Kinguboruto?) is a level 7 Burst Linker and former member of the Purple Legion. Crimson Kingbolt moved to Okinawa three years before the start of the series after his parents divorced. A freshman in high school, he is Lagoon Dolphin's "parent" and is "master" to both Lagoon Dolphin and Coral Merrow. He gives Lagoon Dolphin and Coral Merrow two rules: never use acceleration for selfish purposes and only talk about the Accelerated World to other Burst Linkers. His Brain Burst avatar resembles a screw and has the ability to summon an Enhanced Armament giant robot known as "Mega-Machine Awakening", depending on the amount of metal, which is similar in size and power to Scarlet Rain's Enhanced Armament. He is a friend of Black Lotus, who refers to him as "Crikin." Purple Thorn once recruited him to join her legion (though she only recruited him for his name). Crimson Kingbolt is voiced by Tarusuke Shingaki in Japanese and Todd Stone in English.
