Ramlethal Valentine


Ramlethal Valentine (also spelled Ramletherl Valentine) is a playable boss character who debuted in Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-. A lone girl who declared war on the entire world. She is a non-human life form born in the Backyard, which governs all of creation. She is the successor to the Valentine who orchestrated the prior Baptism 13 Incident (the Illyrian Invasion). As an assassin of the Merciless Apocalypse, her objective is the extermination of the human race, and to that end she has formed an alliance of convenience with the United Nations Senate. Waking the "Cradle" is her sole objective and mission.

Ramlethal Valentine appeared on October 21, 2187 at 12:12 in Japan and declared war on the world, threatening to kill anyone she deemed "unworthy". After being taken into custody by Illyria (caused by her sister's interference), she is interrogated briefly by Sol Badguy and Ky Kiske. Sin Kiske, however, simply tries to get her to open up by having her develop emotions and free thought. Over time, he makes some progress as Ramlethal shows slight signs of emotion. These growing emotions are also fed by Elphelt, who wishes for Ram to help Ky and the others. When Bedman is sent by "Mother" to eliminate Ramlethal, he agrees to do so as he sees her as a thing, not a person. He is quite shocked, however, to see she has gained emotions and thus can't bring himself to kill a "little girl."

In the Final Chapter of Story Mode, her emotions and convictions are seen to have developed further as she stops her sister from self-destructing and returns Elphelt to her non-programmed state of mind. She is last seen in the company of Sol, Ky, and Sin as she watches her sister being summoned back into the Backyard.

Ramlethal is a pretty design. There's so much going on with her. Admittedly, I'm not usually a fan of "scantily clad super powerful anime chicks"... but Arc System Works got this one right. Words can't really even describe this design. She's pure visual eye candy, especially during gameplay. That walking animation? Sold.

Ramlethal defines the reimagined tone of Guilty Gear Xrd series. Indeed, she's very "anime"... but also very original. Most importantly, her moveset is awesomely designed and her animations are sick. Also important... Ramlethal is very Guilty Gear in terms of her visual style. Unexpectedly, she turned out being one of my favorite characters from Xrd. Glad to see her return in STRIVE! I might like her STRIVE visual design even better than her original. Her moveset could offer more and have more variety, but she's still a cool character.
