Lelouch vi Britannia (ルルーシュ・ヴィ・ブリタニア, Rurūshu vui Buritania) was the protagonist of the "Code Geass: Defenders of Britannia" Series, 17 years old (18 at R2). After he was exiled he used the alias, Lelouch Lamperouge (ルルーシュ・ランペルージ, Rurūshu Ranperūji). He was the Eleventh Prince of the Holy Britannian Empire and the son of the 98th Emperor of Britannia, Charles zi Britannia. He was also the leader of the Black Knights and the real identity of Zero. He is voiced by Jun Fukuyama, while his child self is voiced by Sayaka Ohara. His English dub voice is provided by Johnny Yong Bosch with Michelle Ruff doing Lelouch's child voice.

He was chosen the most popular male character of 2006, 2007 and 2008 at Animage magazine's annual Anime Grand Prix. His Seiyū Jun Fukuyama also won the "Best Actor in a Leading Role" award for his portrayal of the character at the first Seiyū Awards in 2007.


  • Coincidentally, Lelouch's english voice actress as a child is Michelle Ruff, who also voices Euphemia and Arthur.
  • Another similar character is Char Aznable (and subsequent characters based off of him) of the long-running Gundam franchise also by Sunrise, both wear masks and bear several aliases rebelling against a nation (the Principality of Zeon which parallels the Holy Britannian Empire) they were once part of.
  • Lelouch's character is based on Kamui Shirou from Clamp Series X-1999 whom Code Geass is said to be it's source for the story and characters. Also Lelouch's character design resembles Kamui from both X and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles. Lelouch and Kamui have whats in common: both are gifted supernatural users who holds the fate of civilization in their hands by leading a war for Earth. But at the same time they must suffer hardships and deaths especially when they protect their loved ones.
  • Other than Kamui from X, Lelouch also have common with Fuuma Monou as well. Lelouch and Fuuma are big loving BROTHERS to their little sisters and are best friends with their childhood friends. Both realize that they cannot escape their fate later in the series. They may have different actions but their villainistic traits are similar since they both end up becoming enemies to their childhood friend and other friends along with making sacrificial decisions for the sake of the world at hand. Also Fuuma is from X and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles just like Kamui.
  • During Lelouch's reign as am emperor, the sword he used is highly possibly a tribute to the divine sword of Kamui from X-1999.
  • In Persona 5, there are three characters that are similar to Lelouch in regards to his personalities: Ren Amamiya A.K.A Joker has his looks, leader of an organization that sets out to fight for freedom, has a supernatural power that leads all the way with the aid of a supernatural female individual, undergoes a memory loss status but is backed with a plan to overthrow the government, and performs a similar role in the end to free the world from "end of free wills" and a personal sacrifice that will clean the world back to it's former state and both are voiced by Jun Fukuyama. Goro Akechi A.K.A Crow and Black Mask has his tragic history, flamboyancy, intelligence, charisma, and has a personal vendetta against his father and ironically both died in the end with powers that are unique and can control people in different ways while the Black Mask aspect resembles that of Zero's outfit. Masayashi Shido has his charisma, god complex, intelligence, arrogance, non-action status, and selfishness and his character arc is reminiscent to that of Emperor Lelouch's but in a note that what if he were to rule the world instead of carrying out the plan.


  • "Say, how should a Britannian who detests his own country live his life?"
  • "What's wrong? Why not shoot? Your opponent is just a schoolboy. Or have you finally realized...the only ones who should kill are those who are prepared to be killed!" "I, Lelouch vi Britannia, command you! Now, all of you...Die!"
  • "[Thinking] That was the turning point. Since that day, I've lived a lie: The lie of living. My name, too, was a lie. My personal history, a lie. Nothing but lies. I was sick to death of a world that couldn't be changed. But even in my lies, I refused to give up in despair. But now, this incredible power, it's mine. [aloud, as he grins evilly] Well, then..."
  • "It's been a long time, big brother. The eldest son of the late consort Marianne and 17th in line to the imperial throne, Lelouch vi Britannia, at your service."
  • "I have returned, Your Highness, and I've come back to change everything."
  • "The trick of real combat is that everyone is human."
  • "You can't change the world without getting your hands dirty."
  • (To C.C.) "C.C., I do not know why snow is white, but I do find such white snow beautiful."
  • (To Kallen) "I must spill yet more blood, so the blood already spilt will not be in vain."
  • (To Euphemia) "Farewell, Euphie. You may have been the first girl that I ever loved."
  • "Yes, I am Zero, the man who leads the Black Knights, who challenges the Holy Britannian Empire; The one who holds the entire world in his hand."
  • (To Guilford)"Let me ask you something, Lord Guilford. Suppose there is an evil that justice cannot bring down. What would you do? Would you taint your hands with evil to destroy evil? Or would you carry out your own justice and succumb to that evil?"
  • (To himself)"I see, then I... shall become evil to conquer an evil larger still!"
  • "If I'm not mistaken I think it was Suzaku who said that the shape of happiness might resemble glass. His reasoning made sense. He said that even though you don't usually notice it, it is still definitely there, you merely need to change your point of view slightly, and that glass will sparkle whenever it reflects the light. I doubt that anything else can argue its own existence more eloquently."*
  • (To Empress Tianzi) "Your Majesty, your future belongs to you. You decide your own fate."
  • "The human heart has always been the source of all our power. That is why the people rose up against the High Eunuchs, and the Black Knights fight like titans. We fight with the power of our hearts!"
  • (To Kallen) "Kallen, you have to live."
  • "My name is Lelouch vi Britannia, I am the eldest son of Empress Marianne, the prince who was abandoned by his empire. If anyone wishes to stop me, let them try, if there is anyone who can go beyond my despair.
  • (To Charles zi Britannia) "That ... I ... I reject you, and I reject everything you believe. Why do people lie, it isn't only because they struggle against each other, it's also because there is something that they're seeking. You now want a world without change. How stagnant, you could hardly call it life. The same as a world of memories, just a world that's closed and completed, that's a place I wouldn't want to live in."
  • "But forcing your good intentions on others is no different from an evil act."
  • "I don't intend to defeat God. This is a request. Yes, now I know who I really am. God, Collective Unconscious! Please, don't stop the march of time!"
  • (To Schneizel) "... Life without change might be called anything except life, it's nothing more than experience. ... Yes, Emperor Charles sought the past, you seek the present, but I seek the future."
  • "Attention entire world, hear my proclamation. I'm Lelouch vi Britannia, Emperor of the Holy Britannian Empire and your only ruler. Schneizel has surrendered to me. As a result of this, I'm now controlling both Damocles and the F.L.E.I.J.A. weapon. ... Yes, from this day, from this moment on, the world belongs to me. Lelouch vi Britannia commands you, obey me, subject! Obey me, world!"
  • "Before creation there must be destruction. If my soul stands in the way, then I'll toss it aside. Yes, I have no choice but to move forward."
  • (Last words before the end of R2) "Yes, I have...destroyed the world...and"
