There are three playable characters in Nier: Automata. They were revealed in the early development stages and are subeject to change
YoRHa No.2 Type B (2B)
A mass-produced combat android, sent to Earth as a member of the “YoRHa,” a unit of automated infantry dolls. She is capable of melee attacks using swords, and long-range attacks using a support system known as a “Pod.” Her eyes are rarely seen, hidden behind her combat goggles.
YoRHa members are not given names; instead, they have only code numbers. They are forbidden from having feelings, but each model has its own individual differences, and 2B has a relatively cool and collected personality.
YoRHa No. 9 Type S (9S)
An android who specializes in hacking and scanning, excelling in melee combat. Said to have a very gentle personality.
YoRHa Type A No.2 (A2)
A quiet and supposedly superior model to 2B and 9S, however still a prototype.
