YoRHa No.2 Type B or more popularly known as 2B is the main protagonist in the Route A of the game. She is an all-purpose battle android created to fight the machine lifeforms who took over the planet Earth. Deployed as a member of YoRHA’s infantry, she is equipped with several weapons for close quarter combat and can use her Pod support system to attack enemies from a range.

2B was a part of the new line of YoRHa androids created by the YoRHA organization, the last remnants of humans that survived the alien attack and went to the moon. She is given the designation as a cover and the mission to observe one of the new Scanner models, 9S, in action during their operations against the machines.

Cool, calm, and collected, 2B is the ultimate killing machine who has high respect for the chain of commands given to her and rarely asks any questions. She usually expresses sardonic wit at certain situations and can be hot-headed at times.

Throughout the journey, 2B starts to grow closer to 9S and becomes more sociable to him. This leads to her expressing frustration as well as pain due to the true relation she has to 9S.

He is a newly manufactured YoRHa scanner android. Programmed to be kind and emotional, 9S is the most human-like YoRHa Android in the game. He is very dedicated and helpful to his partner, 2B, and sometimes prioritizes her safety over his own. As a Scanner, he has a very curious mind toward technology and knowledge as a whole. Due to this nature, 2B was tasked to execute him if ever he discovers the true nature of Project YoRHa.

YoRHa Type A No.2 or A2 is the third protagonist of the game and the final boss of Route D. Unlike 2B and 9S, she is a prototype model YoRHa android, which is used to create the superior models: 2B and 9S.

Three years before the events of the game, she was a member of the first YoRHa squadron that is deployed to Earth as a part of a mission called the “Pearl Harbor.” After these events, she is referred to as the fugitive prototype that remains in the shadows and continuously watches over the actions of 2B and 9S.

Later in the game, A2 reveals to have a more significant role which will lead to 9S knowing the truth behind their mission.

  2. Being an affiliate your main purpose is to effectively and convincingly promote a product or service and find customers to do the same. To help you achieve this goal you should be able to inform customers of certain products and services that you know works and is good using your own testimonial & experiences of them. Therefore it really will be difficult for you to do when you have not already tried these things for your self! So you will not be able to promote and recommend them convincingly and your potential customer will be lost. If you are doing a home party to your potential clients this can prove disastrous! You will want to give your guests loads of stories or experiences so they can enjoy all that you offer & bring in the money.

  3. Boa noite companheiros, provavelmente disparar um torpedo web grátis está cada vez mais trabalhoso devido falta de opções das operadoras de telefone. Há ainda os websites que prometem entregar meu SMS mas nem sempre chegam recepiente final. Alguns como o Mundo oi e o Oi Torpedo funcionam mas e para as outras operadoras? E os que prometem que enviam e nada chega. Para onde está indo as as minhas menssagens? E para a Tim, Vivo? Alguma Idéia? Ou significa ter de desembolsar?. Foi mal, realmente está difícil achar dicas para enviar torpedos sem custo.
