|Berg Katze (Crowds)|
Berg Katse is the main antagonist of Gatchaman Crowds. A mysterious androgynous alien who causes chaos through its 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 its red eyes. It wears a blue suit and pants with black high heel shoes.
It has a crazy personality and is always smiling even when it is trying to be serious.
Berg had arrived on Earth to wreak havoc on humanity and eventually destroy the planet.
It is also responsible for giving Rui his power to control the CROWDS. It is revealed that it did this so he could control the CROWDS itself once it copied Rui's form in episode 8.
AbilitiesBerg Katse has the ability to shapeshift through direct physical contact with a person (usually by kissing) and an extendable prehensile tail that it uses as a whip. It can also teleport and manipulate machines remotely. Due to having possession of a NOTE, it can enhance its abilities by activating it. This allows it to extend its tail infinitely to bind, lash or impale his enemies and grants it new powers such as invisibility. Its Gatchaman form was presumably so powerful, Paiman states that it could potentially defeat the G-Crew.
In episode 12 his suit was finally revealed in his fight against OD. He uses a guitar like weapon that somehow manages to pull out his opponent's inner fears as personified images of the opponent, he then stabs these images and it somehow causes severe damage to the enemy. He managed to damage OD but he was eventually overpowered by him as the fight went on.
- The character is named after the commander of Galactor from the original 1972 series.
