Saya (沙夜) is an agent of the Ouma organization on Earth who first debuted in the action/tactical RPG, Namco X Capcom for the Playstation 2 as its main antagonst. She is a 1,000-year-old Japanese werefox and Reiji Arisu's arch-nemesis. Despite this, she tends to be flirty towards Reiji, which pisses him off to no end due to his belief that she murdered his father, Shogo Arisu.

Namco X CapcomEdit

Mugen no FrontierEdit

After the events of Namco x Capcom, Saya had escaped to the Endless Frontier with Xiaomu and Reiji decided to follow using the flux.

She was fought as a boss several times during the game and eventually returned to the original world. However, as she left, she mentioned a "Tsukomo Project".

Mugen no Frontier EXCEEDEdit

After Project X Zone, she was summoned to the Endless Frontier by Lok Eye. Agrado Heim had taken the Byakushin developed by Ouma, so she followed Lok to either recapture or destroy it. Eventually, Lok abandoned it, but she agreed with Reiji that Byakushin shouldn't be left in the Endless Frontier. In response, she joined as a support member. Despite being originally hostile, she was oddly friendly towards the other party members (although there are scenes where she says that she's "using them" for the time being).

When she returned to the original world, she mentioned a "101 Embryo Plan".


Iai Goren - A series of slashes with the swords "Homura," "Kouri," and "Kusabi".

Shinogi Miren - Launches the enemy with the poisonous short-sword "Shinogi", then blasts them away with the grenade launcher "Kurotsuchi". Inflicts "Poison" on the target.

Shunka Shuuto - Saya's Overdrive. Tearing into her opponent with a multitude of strikes from her swords and grenade launcher before stabbing them with "Shinogi". Inflicts "Poison" on the target.

Youko Reijutsu Dakki no Kata - Saya traps her enemy in a sphere of spiritual energy, dealing damage while healing herself.



  • Her Overdrive, Shunka Shuuto, is named after the four seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter, in contrast to the five elements of her rivals' Shinra Banshou Overdrive.
    • In fact, there's speculation that because her and Reiji's fighting styles are so similar (his fighting style was a closely-guarded family secret), and because she can transfer he consciousness into different bodies (which's how she survived the end of Namco X Capcom), that she might have transferred into the body of Reiji's mother before the events of NxC, namely 10 years beforehand when she fought Shogo.
