Bullet (バレット) is a mercenary who formerly belonged to the Mercenary Squad before its complete annihilation at the hands of Azrael. She was on a quest for revenge for her fallen comrades. She uses the weapon Smash Hail [2], a gauntlet attached to her left arm.

Bullet was made playable in BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, the same game she debuted in.

Appearance

Bullet

Bullet is a woman with tan skin, short and spiky gray hair, golden eyes, and a scar across her nose. She's taller than every other playable female character in the series, but this isn't always visible due to her stance in combat. Bullet has large breasts and hips which don't fit her clothing very well.

Bullet is always seen wearing her squad's uniform, which consists of a black jacket with gold trim and buttons, a small white shirt, brown steel-toed boots, brown fingerless gloves, and denim hot pants. Her jacket has a badge with the emblem of her squad on the right sleeve, and she wears a belt which is much too large for her waist and thus dangles behind her in a manner resembling a tail. She wears Smash Hail on her left arm, and a golden metal gauntlet with a round spiked elbow guard on her right.

Personality

Bullet has a candid attitude and she doesn't sweat small details. She is the type to always keep a promise to someone no matter what. She is slightly ignorant of the world around her due to her upbringing in an all-male environment.[3][4][5]

The mercenary squad that raised Bullet is her pride and joy, and she fights to preserve their memory. Having been raised by them, she is slightly ignorant of the world that surrounds her, relating everything she can to combat. Everyday tasks are approached with a military precision and mindset, and she is concerned with even the smallest details relating to tasks. Her personality is best described as straight-forward, frank, yet hotheaded as she is quick to lose her temper when things do not go her own way.

Bullet has been shown once to be racist towards demi-humans, stating that they all know each other and that one who smells like blood should be killed. This was specifically against Valkenhayn R. Hellsing when she was hunting Kokonoe; this incident is isolated and Bullet has not demonstrated this behaviour before or since.[6] One member of the mercenary squad she was raised in was of demi-human heritage, so it is unknown what spurred this behavior. Outside of anything pertaining to her mission, Bullet has only expressed hatred once, and it was vehemently aimed at Amane Nishiki who had been responsible for her dancing for three days and nights straight because of a simple mistake.

Although she is outwardly professional, there have been times when Bullet drops her personality and becomes flustered. Her uniform, when questioned about its design, is enough to make Bullet stutter as she defends it, but anyone who attacks it is risking a life-long grudge. Bullet's single-minded determination in avenging her squadron is what keeps her going, and anything else is something she is not concerned with, even including the bounty of Ragna the Bloodedge.[7] This determination has sometimes clouded her humanity, and she even risked the lives of innocent civilians in her hunt for Litchi Faye-Ling, later lamenting over the decision.[8]

Because of the way she acts, Bullet is a lone wolf who does not usually interact with others. She formed a good relationship with Bang Shishigami as he managed to make her laugh and the two shared a similar history.[9] For all her negative qualities, Bullet is not a deliberately bad person, but someone who has a heavy duty upon her shoulders that can cloud her moral compass, although she is quick to realize her own mistakes. In her free time, Bullet likes eating spicy foods, and doing embroidery.

Powers & Techniques

Having been raised by mercenaries, Bullet is no stranger to fighting and has spent her life moving from battlefield to battlefield. Her weapon is the Smash Hail, a gauntlet that can transform in battle and launch fiery projectiles from its palm; it also functions as a small shield. Being well-prepared for combat, Bullet also carries smoke bombs on her person should she encounter situations that she cannot handle. With her no nonsense attitude to her profession and goal, Bullet fights regardless of the odds in front of her.

In gameplay, Bullet's Drive is Lock On, which makes her generate a small circle around her body. When the opponent is in this circle and the Drive button is released, Bullet will launch herself at the opponent and grab them, although this grab functions like a normal move and not a command grab. Various moves allow her to increase her Heat Up level which gives her access to more powerful specials, and increases the speed and distance she can travel with her dash. Moves that increase it are any successful Drive attack and Afterburner.

Unfortunately, despite all of Bullet's experience in combat, she's weak in relative comparison to the other playable cast. Azrael has defeated her while exerting minimal effort, and even Bullet's punches against his stomach were enough to break her arm; during this time, Bullet had little access to Ars Magus.[10] She has, however, become stronger over time, and was able to evenly stand against Tager at one point.

BlazBlue: Central Fiction Library Entry

Bullet

A female mercenary that travels across the world in search of missions. The handsome and almost noble scar on her face is a testament to the hardships she has seen in her life.

She has a frank and open-minded personality, not sweating the details – but that doesn't mean to say she doesn't have a heavy sense of duty and obligation.

Having grown up in a mercenary unit comprised of only men, she has a tendency to equate almost anything in everyday life to combat. Another reason for such behavior could be her utter lack of interest in matter unrelated to combat.

She was once hired by Sector Seven, but her unit was annihilated for reasons unknown during an extremely covert operation. As a result, she spends most of her time tracking down Kokonoe and Relius, the two scientists she believes knows the truth behind the incident. Her journey takes her to Ikaruga.

Tager shows some resemblance to her comrade, but their relationship is unknown.[13]

BlazBlue Alternative: Dark War Official Site Profile

A careful participant in the Resistance that opposes the oppression of the "Novus Orbis Librarium." Although she has a strong sense of responsibility, she will sometimes act impulsively if it is for the sake of the male mercenary group that picked her up when she was small. She lost all of the members of her mercenary group in the past, and for that reason is hostile towards the NOL.[14]
