Carmine Prime (Red Origin, or Crimson Origin), is a neutral character who happens to be both an anti-hero and an anti-villain at the same time. He is one of the playable characters in Under Night In-Birth and its updates.

He returns in BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle as one of the Season 1’s DLC playable characters and remained in neutral side.


A literally blood-thirsty In-Birth, Carmine has sought out fight after fight every Hollow Night for the thrill of combat. His origins are relatively unknown other than being a delinquent senior student in the same high school as Hyde Kido, Orie Ballardiae and Seth the Assassin. While he is aware of the conflict between Amnesia and the Licht Kreis that dominates the Hollow Nights, he cares little about it. To him, all that matters is defeating anyone in his path who even so much as looks at him funny, such as being reffered as his disliked animal motif, a crawfish. Carmine also sometimes being followed by a fortune-telling boy named Azel, who happens to have predicted the tragic fate of Roger the Survivor, Gordeau the Harvester’s late-friend from Amnesia. Although Carmine gets attention to almost every In-Births in combat, but sadly almost one of them mistaken him for Litch Kreis’ Erika Wagner Miyashiro, due to their similar “Crimson” nickname.


  • Carmine is so far the first and only villain who is not originating from BlazBlue to appear in the original main storyline prior 2.0.
  • Carmine, alongside Hyde and Heart Aino are the only known characters who has secondary character title in Cross Tag. Carmine’s case is Insanity & Pleasure.
  • Carmine has color palettes of the following characters: Venom (Guilty Gear), Hazama Honoka, Sho Minazuki (Persona 4 Arena), Merkava, Roman Torchwick (RWBY), and Morrigan Aensland (Darkstalkers)
  • Despite his animal motif is a crawfish, Carmine howls like a wolf, when calling a regular partner during Partner Skill assist attack call. Notably heard when setting Carmine’s voice in English dub.
