|Berg Katze (Crowds)|
Berg Katse is the main antagonist of Gatchaman Crowds. A mysterious androgynous alien who causes chaos through his shapeshifting abilities and has brought about the destruction of several planets.
Berg is a tall, thin pale skinned humanoid with razor sharp teeth, a prehensile tail and long purple hair that covers his red eyes. He wears a blue suit and pants with black high heel shoes.
Berg had arrived on Earth to wreak havoc on humanity and eventually destroy the planet.
He is also responsible for giving Rui his power to control the CROWDS. It is revealed that he did this so he could control the CROWDS himself once he copied Rui's form in episode 8.
Berg Katse has the ability to shapeshift through direct physical contact with a person (usually by kissing) and an extendable prehensile tail that he uses as a whip. Due to having possession of a NOTE, he can enhance his abilities by activating it. This allows him to extend his tail infinitely to bind, lash or impale his enemies and grants him new powers such as invisibility. His Gatchaman form is presumably so powerful, Pai Pai states that it could potentially defeat the G-Crew.
- The character is named after the commander of Galactor from the original 1972 series.
