Created by the power of the god-like Moderators, Kampfers are specialized female fighters who harbor specialized talents and fighting skills in order to carry out the eternal war between the Red and Blue Moderators. Kampfers fight against each other to the death.
Originally created to act as pawns in the eternal war between the god-like Moderators, Kampfers are in fact human females who are taken under contract by the Bracelet of Oath to serve the Moderators that they become aligned with. Partnered up with a magical plush toy that acts as both their adviser and guide, the Kampfers wage war whenever they come across a rival Kampfer from the other team. They come in three different types that use their special abilities and superhuman talents in order to fight on behalf of their Moderators that they are under contract with. There has never been a confirmed male who has become a Kampfer until the unfortunate teenager Natsuru Seno gets enlisted by the Moderators as a Blue Kampfer.
Kampfers were originally created by Tsukiji Toshihiko for use in the Kampfer manga. They also appear in both of the anime adaptation of the same manga series.
There are three types of Kampfers, each specializing in a unique skill set and using specialty weapons or magic to attack rival Kampfers. They are:
The Bracelet of Oath is a magical bracelet that appears on the right wrist of the individual who has been selected by the Moderators to become either a Red or Blue Kampfer. It can not be removed from their wrist (being magically bound to the person's body) and shows the color alliance of the individual in question. The bracelet is the source of their power, granting them access to their superhuman talents and specialize skills whenever they transform into their Kampfer forms. Later in the anime series, a third team of Kampfers (White Kampfers under the guidance of Kaede Sakura) are formed when the Reds (Shizuku/Mikoto) and Blues (Akane/Natsuru) stop fighting each other and team up together in order to resist the will of their Moderator masters.
The following characters are split up into their appropriate teams (Red/Blue/White Kampfers) that appear in the franchise (as of this posting, the ones in the anime series). They are as follows:
