Ikaros (イカロス, ikarosu?) is the deutragonist and main female character of the Sora no Otoshimono series.
History[edit | edit source]
Ikaros fell from the Synapse portal to Earth, was rescued by Tomoki, and "imprinted" on him. She said to Tomoki that she is a pet-class Angeloid type Alpha, called Ikaros. She also told him she would fulfill all his desires.
Towards the end of the series, it is revealed that Ikaros once nearly destroyed Synapse under the decree of her original master. In fear of her power, the people of Synapse then sealed her powers and programmed her to burn to death if she went near Synapse without authorization.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Ikaros is submissive, melancholic, and usually placid but resorts to violence if she sees her master, Tomoki, in danger. She is fiercely loyal to Tomoki and does anything to please and protect him. She also loves anything round and smooth, such as watermelons. She has incrementally developed the capacity to experience various emotions throughout the series, such as sorrow, love, anger and more.
Due to her emotional capacity being low, Ikaros was initially unable to experience or express emotion. She has developed intense feelings towards Tomoki, but was unable to express them until they reached the Synapse. Before entering the Synapse, Ikaros passionately kisses Tomoki and confesses her true feelings, telling him that she loves him. After she was resurrected, she was embarrassed by the recollection of her confession to Tomoki.
In the manga, after she was embarrassed by the recollection of her confession to Tomoki, Tomoki settled things with Ikaros about her confession. The story then concludes with them together, most assumed as a couple.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Ikaros has a voluptuous build with long, rosy-pink hair styled in pigtails secured with dark-pink ribbons. Her hair also has an "ahoge" (a long strand of protruding hair, which usually twitches when Tomoki is in danger). She has emerald-colored eyes, except for when she is operating in Uranus Mode, during which her eyes become red during combat. Also during her Uranus mode, her hair becomes more unkempt with a halo appearing above her head. She wore a choker around her neck with a broken chain. While she is not in combat, Ikaros usually wear a white mini dress with a deep v-neck, to the point where it exposes her bellybutton. Her weighs is 48 kilograms (105 lbs.), she also stands at 162 cm (5'4") and her wings are the Variable type wings, which are priceless and are coveted by Synapse. Her measurements are: Bust: 88cm, Waist: 57cm, Hip: 85cm. Despite having an 88cm bust, Ikaros' breasts appear to have the same volume as Sohara Mitsuki's.
Character Plot[edit | edit source]
While Ikaros begins the series with a poor grasp on human emotions, she eventually develops emotions and begins to fall in love with Tomoki. This is because she has high battle and processing capability, but low emotional control. She is willing to sacrifice herself if it means ensuring the safety of her master,
Recently her feelings for Tomoki have grown even further, indicated by the fact that she blushed and felt embarrassed when she accidentally saw Tomoki's kissing face. In Chapter 56, she evolved into "Type Alpha, Ikaros Version II", following her near-destruction by Ikaros Melan in Chapter 55.
At first, Ikaros is very submissive towards her new master and seeks to please him by granting him whatever he
desires by using a special Summoning Card that allows her to order anything for Tomoki's wishes and desires from the world of the Synapse. As a Pet-Class Angeloid, she is built and designed to obey her master and to serve his every command and need at all costs. Tomoki, who is still in shock from the events of the prior night, awakes to find Ikaros sitting by his bed, awaiting his first orders for her to perform.
When he discovers that she can summon almost anything that he desires from her world through the use of the Transport Card, Tomoki's perverted nature takes over, and he (along with Ikaros who is pleased to help her master attain happiness), goes out on a day-long rampage throughout the town of Sorami, doing things that he could only dream of being able to do without ever getting caught for it. He terrorizes his unknowing friend Sohara Mitsuki (who is busy trying to fit her increasingly large breasts into her bra) by turning himself and Ikaros invisible and groping her breasts until Sohara freaks out. When Ikaros asks why her master is doing this, he responds that this is "punishment" for her giving him one of her powerful karate chops the previous day.
He then goes around town, shrinking himself so that he can fit in the gap between other women's breasts, stopping time so he can "examine" the bodies, and undergarments of the girls at school, and running around public areas around town stark naked with Ikaros in tow. After wiping out the entire human race other than himself (a result of his wish for world domination, which Ikaros states that no one would accept Tomoki as their supreme leader, and thus removed all humans so he could dominate the world by himself), he orders Ikaros to not bother him again, since his life is now ruined and he is quite frustrated with the current situation. Thinking that he means that as an order for her to kill herself, she summons a pistol to put an end to her services as his servant, but is stopped by Tomoki when he realizes what she is trying to do behind his back. He begs her to ignore his last order (for he did not think that it meant that she would kill herself because of it), but she tells him that she can not ignore his previous order and must carry it out. It is when he orders her to "stay by his side" that she finally stops trying to kill herself and when Tomoki mutters that he wished that this was all just a crazy dream, she warps him back to the previous morning and returns everything back to normal.
When Sohara walks into Tomoki's room after he fails to answer the door and sees the semi-nude Ikaros sitting next to his bed chained to his wrist, she freaks out and unleashes her infamous Karate Chops upon him. Eishirou Sugata of the New World Discovery Club takes interest in the Transport Cards that she carries (after reversing the wild events of the prior day, the original Summoning Card was erased, and now she uses an older set of cards that only grant one wish a piece) while Tomoki is still recovering from the brutal beating that Sohara unleashed on him. Ikaros is sent on a shopping trip by Tomoki, and she mistakenly purchases things that have nothing to do with what he wants (such as getting a watermelon after taking a great interest in it or buying a baby chicken to cook for dinner).
Meanwhile, back in the mysterious world of the Synapse, the Master of Synapse summons one of his personal servants, an "Electronic Warfare: Type Beta" Angeloid by the name of Nymph and asks of her to go down to Earth and "recover" Ikaros for him. He wishes to extract the extremely rare and valuable wings that she possesses (the fabled Variable Type wings, which possess special abilities and allow for precise flying) and to bring back Ikaros to become one of his "possessions". Nymph sets off to Sorami to locate and intercept Ikaros for extraction, but is hampered by the fact that Ikaros has become linked to Tomoki and how weak compared to Ikaros she is (she excels at hacking and stealth, but her overall strength is severely lacking compared to her target). It is when Nymph hacks into Ikaros' systems and unlocks all the restraints on the emotional controls that render Ikaros so submissive towards others that things turn ugly. Unknown to Nymph, the restraints on the emotional controls also control the ability for Ikaros to engage her ultra-powerful Uranus Queen mode, and with nothing to stop it from being accessed, Ikaros activates it. Nymph, who fails to realize this, comes face to face with a enraged Ikaros, who draws one of her powerful energy arrows that she aims her Apollon bow at her. With no chance to succeed in her mission or to achieve victory, Nymph retreats and returns to Synapse to inform her master of her failure.
Back on the palace grounds in Synapse, Nymph makes her way inside and returns to her irritated master, who is not pleased with the continued failures of his "junk" servant. He has her tell him what she treasures most, and she replies that it is a rare and beautiful songbird that she has found and begun to take care of. Smiling, he orders her to kill the bird before him as to prove her loyalty to him. When she hesitates in shock from his cruel order, he forces her to destroy her beautiful songbird with her own bare hands before kicking her head with his foot, taking pleasure in her tears. As a final act of his malice upon her, he attaches a time-delayed bomb collar around her neck, which will detonate if she takes too long to recover Ikaros or if he wishes for her to die.
Nymph returns to Tomoki's house in order to get close to her target, Ikaros again, but over time, she starts to develop feelings for Tomoki and becomes good friends with Ikaros. Seeing how nicely Tomoki and his friends treat Ikaros and herself, Nymph can't bring herself to carry out her orders and does not carry out her mission as planned. She just wants to enjoy the last few days of freedom before she dies, since the explosive collar around her neck nears the day of final detonation that her master pre-programmed into it. With less than a 1/4th of the bar remaining on the timer, the eventual detonation draws near for Nymph. Seeing that Nymph will not carry out his orders as he commanded, the Man of Synapse turns to his two loyal Angeloid servants, who goes by the name Harpies to help "convince" Nymph to finish her mission and please her master once and for all. The two Harpies venture down to Earth from Synapse to follow Nymph at a distance, observing the movements and behaviors of both her and their master's target: Ikaros. The two Harpies eventually confront Nymph and use their skills of deception to trick her into a plan that involves bringing the unknowing Ikaros to a predetermined location so they can capture her and return her to their master. They also lie to her that their master back in Synapse would be pleased with her if she succeeded, which convinces her to follow through with their scheme. While the two Harpies leave and prepare the trap, Nymph returns to Tomoki's house and asks Ikaros to join her to see a most beautiful cherry tree that is in full bloom. The two of them set off, leaving the house before Tomoki and the others return from Christmas shopping in town.
When the two Angeloids arrive at the cherry tree at the foot of the mountains, the two Harpies (hidden away from Ikaros by a special shield that makes them invisible to everyone) await the perfect moment to strike. Using their powerful Prometheus cannons, they fire a massive blast of energy at the unsuspecting Ikaros, striking her with such force that it shears off one of her pink wings and knocks her out cold. Nymph, shocked by what the Harpies have done to Ikaros, demands to know why they attacked her so brutally. The Harpies clue Nymph in on their real assignment from their master in Synapse, and prepare to depart with Ikaros's limp body. Horrified at what the Harpies true intentions are and how brutally the Harpies attacked Ikaros, Nymph launches her mighty Paradise Song attack, taking the two Harpies by surprise with a powerful blast of rainbow-colored energy that carves a swath of destruction before her. To her horror, both Harpies escaped her attack with minor energy burns, and they turn their full brutality upon the hapless Nymph. They pin her to the ground and proceed to rip both of her wings out, taking twisted pleasure in the screams of agony that Nymph releases as she struggles to stay alive. Behind them, the lifeless form of Ikaros starts to stir as her systems recover from the surprise attack that had knocked her out minutes ago. Tomoki, Sohara, Eishiro, and Mikako, who have been looking for the two Angeloids after discovering them to be missing earlier, arrive at the site of the fight and are shocked to see a battered Ikaros on the ground while the two Harpies continue to harass Nymph. Ikaros slowly gets to her feet, still shaken from the surprise attack, and prepares to activate her ultimate power, her unstoppable Uranus Queen program.
The Harpies turn their attention to the group of humans and Ikaros behind them, surprised that she was able to recover from their attack so quickly. Nymph, shocked as to what Tomoki and his friends will think of Ikaros if she uses her terrible Uranus Queen mode in front of them, pleads with Ikaros not to use it. Ikaros turns to Tomoki, asking if she can deal with the current situation, and he grants her the honor of doing so. With her master's approval, and to the horror of the two Harpies, Ikaros activates her Uranus Queen program, which repairs her damaged wing, and gives her access to staggering amounts of power. The Harpies, realizing that the end is near, both fire their Prometheus canons at Ikaros, but their shots are harmlessly deflected by the powerful Aegis Shield that protects Ikaros when she has her Uranus Queen mode active. Meanwhile, Tomoki and friends desperately try to free Nymph from her master's chain of service from around her neck, which will activate the explosive collar and kill Nymph in mere minutes. After several minutes of struggling, they manage to break the chain of service with a spare axe that Eishiro had in his possession, thus freeing Nymph from service to her cruel master in Synapse forever. Knowing that they have no chance against their enemy, the Harpies try to escape from the wrath of the now-unstoppable Ikaros, firing quick blasts from their Prometheus canons in a feeble attempt to slow her down. Undeterred by their attempts to hinder her pursuit of them, Ikaros summons her ultimate attack; the powerful Hephaestus spaceship, armed with dozens of powerful energy cannons that lock upon the two stunned Harpies and fires. With a massive beam of pure energy so powerful that it can be seen from space, the two Harpies are blasted all of the way back to Synapse, lucky enough not to be vaporized in the blast. With her enemies gone and her friends safe, Ikaros returns to her normal mode.

Return of Chaos Arc[edit | edit source]
Ikaros Melan Arc[edit | edit source]
Synapse (End) Arc[edit | edit source]
In chapter 77, she died because of Tomoki's order "Take me to Synapse!". Ikaros already knows that she will be dead or be burnt alive after entering Synapse. Knowing she will die taking Tomoki to Synapse, Ikaros confesses her love to Tomoki before disintegrating leaving nothing but an orb in a crying Tomoki's hands. Due to the orb 'they' (Ikaros, Nymph, Astraea, Harpies, Sohara, Yoshitsune, Sugata and everyone who died) forced themselves into one and gave Tomoki the strength to beat the Master of Synapse, along with Daedalus and Mikako's help. They were able to have a new wish granted on the 'Rule', and that is when everyone be brought back to life.
Note: the beginning pages are animated in Eternal my Master as a filler of sort, while the rest of the chapter was put on a special by blue ray disc. (This event was presumed to be not related to the anime version or as a filler taking place before the main plot of the Eternal my Master).
Epilogue (manga version)[edit | edit source]
Afterwards, Ikaros remembered her confession toward Tomoki when asked by the others on what happened after everything disappeared and became embarrassed after remembering it. Tomoki, after thinking over Ikaros' confession, has decided that she can stay by his side forever.
Eternal my Master[edit | edit source]
Ikaros attempted to kiss Tomoki, and yet she fails. Later as she does house chores as usual, Nymph and Astraea take Tomoki on a date; she shows some kind of frustation by staying behind.
While Sugata and the others ( at the exception of Tomoki and Ikaros ) discuss about Synapse; Later on Ikaros denies anything to do with it (rejecting her past).As everyone comes home, Tomoki wonders why Ikaros doesn't show emotions and assumes it because of the imprinting chain. Nymph and Astraea get into a sister fight. Tomoki is getting tired of the troublesome routine and tries to kick them out but they shout his own words back at him that Angeloids are freeloaders. Tomoki then breaks Ikaros' imprinting, with Daedalus and Sohara muttering their dismayed. Tomoki's day becomes even rougher as everyone are condescending him. Mikako takes Ikaros to her household for the time-being as to aggravate Tomoki.
Mikako scans Ikaros' memory (implying that Mikako was an Angeloid) and reminds Ikaros about her dark past. The next day, the girls try to make breakfast for Tomoki however their quality doesn't meet any standard. Then Ikaros crashes in picking up Tomoki in a bold manner saying she won't hand over him to anyone. lying in the air, Ikaros recklessly drops Tomoki in a restaurant on his command as their date. Proposing they should go somewhere with just the two of them, Ikaros chases after Tomoki begging him to be her master again. Arriving at the sakura tree, Tomoki reminisces anything that happened since he met Ikaros. The others show up lecturing him that he needs to think deeply how Ikaros feels and what she wants. Mikako then "orders" Ikaros to throw Tomoki somewhere high up, as a way of to provoke their grudge from each other.
Screaming out of despair; wondering the purpose she was created for and having no other place to go to, Ikaros tearfully begs Tomoki to be her master as he is all she ever wants. Realizing his foolishness and Ikaros true feeling he accepts her by imprinting and returns to everyone happily.
Abilities and Weapons[edit | edit source]
As a Pet-Class Angeloid, Ikaros carries the powerful Transport Card (a summoning device that delivers whatever she orders to her location from the Synapse). The original card she carried at the beginning of the story allowed for her to use only one card to summon items, but after it gets lost when she reverses the wild misadventure of Tomoki, she has to use an older model that only allows for one request per card. She has many of these cards. As the story progresses, it is revealed that Ikaros is more than just a mere Pet-Class Angeloid, she is really a mighty Strategic Battle-Class: Type-Alpha Angeloid (the most powerful of the 1st Generation Angeloid models). She has an ultimate battle mode by the name of Uranus Queen, which allows her to unlock her full power potential and grants her access to incredible weapons to use in battle. When she triggers her Uranus Queen mode, her green eyes turn red/purple, her soft, pink wings change into a bright light, and a golden halo appears above her head. Ikaros has the ability to fly at Mach 24 with her wings while her powers were blocked. Mach 24 is a lowball from the author. Artemis is fast enough to cross the world in one panel. Nymph, who is the slowest of the First Generation was able to react and temporarily outfly them. That means Ikaros speed should be Mach 5000 and even higher with charging wings in Uranus Queen Mode. Ikaros also has a powerful radar, but it's not as powerful as Nymph's. Ikaros' radar can detect anything or anyone from a far away distance. Ikaros was able to solve complex math equations easily just by detecting the problem and solving it. When Astraea came out to destroy Tomoki, Ikaros and Nymph were able to do a wide area radar scan to find out where Tomoki was. Ikaros detected Astraea as an enemy threat as Close Combat Angeloid Type: Delta, Astraea. As an Alpha Angeloid, she can use her radar to detect or track anything from anywhere and her radar enhances her intelligence. Any Angeloid can see in a radar form depending on the color of their eyes. Ikaros is an Alpha Angeloid, so she can see in a radar form with the color red from her eyes whenever she activates her radar from her eyes, but her eyes are an emerald green, so she can see in a radar form with the color green. Ikaros can see in a radar form with whatever color eyes she has, but she can still see the colors that are around her with green.
When in Uranus Queen mode, Ikaros has access to four powerful weapons/abilities, that make her almost unstoppable on the battlefield. Her shield, the incredible Aegis Shield, can block almost any attack from every direction and make her almost invulnerable when it is successfully deployed. It was stated she could use this shield on a planetary scale. She gains the use of the mighty Apollon Bow, a silver bow that creates powerful energy arrows so strong, they could wipe out the entire nation of Japan in one shot when she was weak from Nymph’s ambush.. The strong and deadly Artemis Launcher allows for her to launch dozens to millions of powerful homing missiles of energy from her wings. And when all else fails, she can summon a colossal space warship (anime) by the name of Hephaestus, which is armed with massive energy cannons that when combined into a single shot, fires a beam so powerful that it could literally shatter the Earth on impact, possibly even more than that. In the manga, Hephaestus is a giant cannon that fires a straight wide laser beam, though seemingly having the power of the warship. Based upon feats Ikaros spammed Synapse with Artemis and Apollon. Synapse is strong enough to be unaffected by the Big Bang, Universal Destruction, and Timeline Rests.
After her Pandora evolution, her abilities vastly increases. Ikaros was so powerful that she was gaining the power to take on the New Advanced Synapse since she last destroyed it. Her speed should be FTL. Her flight speed is faster than Pandora Astraea, who was able to fly on photons. Ikaros is fast enough to deploy and reduce her reaction speed by 3.5 femtoseconds from Artemis by the Melans that are vastly superior in speed from Uranus Queen Ikaros. Her speed has further increased by 370%. She was able to temporarily take on an Amped Chaos in battle.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Her name Ikaros is a play on Icarus, whereas her creator's name "Daedalus' is a reference to Daedalus, the Greek mythical figure who created wings of wax for himself and and his son Icarus. It is further played upon when her wings burn when she approaches the Synapse; the Greek Icarus' wings burned when he flew too close to the sun.
- In epilogue chapter Ikaros and Tomoki has settled their relationship, which concludes that they stay together forever (pretty close to a couple, however in the anime version, which follows eternal my master, it showed that Tomoki apparently loves Ikaros as well and by a third movie Ikaros and Tomoki might become a couple).
- She has become Tomoki's most beloved and precious girl after she confessed her true feelings to him.
- Her wings burst into flames in the 77th chapter because she flew too close to the Synapse without permission.
- Her abilities and weapons (Apollo, Artemis, and Hephaestus) are named after the Greek gods of the sun, hunting, and blacksmiths, respectively. Aegis was the impenetrable shield of Zeus, Greek god of the sky, Apollo was the the god of Archery, same as his twin sister Artemis.
- When Ikaros was attacking the surface, the boy who gave her the order to destroy the Synapse looks similar to Tomoki.
- In Eternal My Master, it's revealed that Ikaros was afraid of entering the Synapse, but she worried more about the fate of the world, specifically Tomoki.
- She has no desire for freedom, as she has no other place to go, and finds happiness in serving Tomoki.
- Ikaros has a great singing voice, which was confirmed when she sang the song "Fallen Down" in Episode 10 of the anime.
- She was originally sent to help Tomoki, however, Ikaros and Tomoki have developed very strong feelings for each other.
- She was created before 100,000,000,000,000,000 A.C.
- The top speed she can reach while flying is Mach 24.
- She can reach a depth of 3000 meters.
- She can operate without oxygen for 720 hours.
- She likes petting or touching circular objects (e.g. watermelons).
- Once, in Volume 13 Chapter 51, Ikaros, after seeing Tomoki with her watermelon, decided that the watermelon had equal value in her heart as her own master. As soon as Tomoki accidentally breaks the watermelon, she punishes him in a painful way: sending him into space with Hephaestus.
- In the manga, Ikaros says that she is an entertainment purpose Angeloid, while she states she is a pet-class Angeloid in the anime.

- Ever since she fell in love with Tomoki, she couldn't confess her feelings until she brought him to the Synapse, when she was about to self destruct.
- In the manga, after the world was restored, Ikaros remembered her confession to Tomoki before getting destroyed, so she gets embarrassed after remembering it. In the end, Tomoki settled things with Ikaros, concluding that she can stay by his side for as long as she wants (in other words they can stay together forever).
