    Species: Android
    Portrayed by: Yui Ishikawa (Japanese)

    YoRHa No.2 Type B (Battle) or 2B/2E serves as the protagonist of Route A in NieR:Automata. She is a YoRHa android created to battle the machine lifeforms that have invaded the planet on behalf of the surviving humans. She served during the 14th Machine War.

    Why She's 2B

    1. Despite her cold demeanor, 2B is generally kind, respectful, and loyal to her duties.
    2. 2B is actually a very kind person deep down:
      • She acts as a respectable superior to her partner 9S.
      • She cares a great deal for her friends, petting her Pod as though it were a pet.
    3. Gorgeous and sexy design, as many people had made memes about her thighs.
      • 2B's thighs actually support her combat style which would need powerful legs to do such performance.
    4. Her gameplay with dual wielding swords brings elegance and beauty to her character.
    5. Great voice performances by Yui Ishikawa and Kira Buckland.
    6. She is often has a sarcastic attitude, like when her Pod points out the obvious.
    7. It is true that 2B just pointed out that expressing emotions are prohibited, she expressed pain with her true role in relation to 9S, hating the cycle they are locked in throughout the events of the game:
      • Her relationship with 9S, while it may be simple, yet it doesn't feel as one-dimensional as players would thought.
      • Her death had brought emotional trauma to 9S, and her last words being "Nines" shows how much she's thankful for being together with him.
      • 2B's cold and brooding demeanor is the reason why she cared about 9S, whom she killed 48 times because Yorha created a lie about humanity taking refuge on the moon and the machines were the enemy. But since humanity had been extinct for thousands of years, scanners like 9S had found out that the truth about 2B killing him multiple times.
    8. The ending theme reflects 2B's development: from wanting to kill God to seeking redemption by asking him for help.

    The Only Bad Quality

    1. While the concept of 2B’s inclusion into Soulcalibur VI sounds good on paper, the execution was wasted and could’ve been handled better.

    Trivia

    • The reason why 2B wears high heels is because the game's developer Yoko Taro answered "I just really liked girls."
    • Like all other YoRHa androids, 2B was modeled after her creators, as stated in the game.
    • 2B's sword Virtuous Contract is said to be a white blade used by the samurai of the east.
    • According to Nier: Automata Guide Book, 2B's three-sizes are B: 84cm; W:56cm; H:88cm. Her height is 168cm (including heels). Her weight is 148.8kg.
    • Whenever 2B self-destructs while the player character, her skirt is removed entirely, revealing her leotard: however, if the player character is 9S, self-destructing only switches her to a skirt with a torn-out front seen after some boss fights. Her clothing will reset to normal after transporting or viewing certain cutscenes, and can be manually repaired or prevented from changing states if the player owns the "Dress Module" key item sold in Emil's store.
