Berg Katze is the main antagonist of Gatchaman Crowds. It is a mysterious androgynous alien who has caused chaos through its shapeshifting abilities, and have brought about the destruction of several planets.

Appearance

Berg Katze is a tall, thin pale skinned humanoid with razor sharp teeth, a prehensile tail and long, wavy dark pink hair that covers its solid red eyes that possess diamond shapes going in different directions rather than pupils. It wears a blue pantsuit with black high heel shoes. When Hajime confronted Katze in the director's cut, she cut off its long hair making it very short and revealing Katze's eyes.

Its tail is made up of a diamond pattern, which also exists as markings on their neck and feet. In addition, instead of pupils, the diamond pattern also appears on its eyes.

Personality 

It has an unusual, wild personality and always smiles even when it is attempting to be serious. It also has an over-the-top manner of speech in a manner of internet slang, where it draws out their dialogue. Katze relishes schadenfreude to the point of causing misfortunes itself out of fun. Katze however did show fear at one point in his life after meeting Gelsadra.

Plot

There isn't much known about Berg Katze's history, but it was stated that he has killed off all of the inhabitants of a few planets (one of which was O.D.'s father's home planet).

Berg Katze had arrived on Earth to wreak havoc on humanity and eventually destroy the planet.

It is also responsible for giving Rui Ninomiya (as well as Rizumu Suzuki) his power to control the CROWDS. Often times, Katze wreaks havoc by framing people for crimes or taunting Rui to use CROWDS for more than he intended for. It is revealed that Katze gave Rui his NOTE this so that it could control the CROWDS after it copied Rui's form in the eighth episode after stealing his NOTE and access to X.

With its plan in fruition, Katze gives access to the blacklisted people access to CROWDS as they attempt to kill the prime minister as the Neo One Hundred. He later gives access to CROWDS for everyone causing the avatars to appear en masse. The Gatchaman make their move against Katze by fighting against the CROWDS with O.D. fighting against Katze. O.D. manages to defeat Katze and recover Rui's NOTE but is badly wounded. With Katze himself wounded, and unable to cause havoc it can only watch as people use CROWDS to help each other rather than destroy themselves. Frustrated Katze leaves.

In the DVD / Blu Ray exclusive director's cut episode, it is shown that Hajime tracked down Katze after figuring out his invisibility trick and in their confrontation shears Katze's long hair and getting Katze's NOTE. With a kiss and pushing Katze's NOTE into herself, Hajime fuses with Katze by a kiss in order to stop it from causing any more trouble. It is still able to communicate with everyone else when Hajime allows it, however, and reveals itself to possess quite a sharp tongue.

(This was never explained in the broadcast version of the episode, as it was left incomplete due to Tatsunoko rushing the last two episodes and being unable to finish them on a deadline. Fans remained awfully confused and disappointed until they discovered the extra episode.)

Abilities 

Berg's NOTE

Berg's NOTE

Berg Katze 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, turn invisible on a whim, and manipulate machines remotely. Due to having possession of a NOTE called the Schadenfreude NOTE, it can enhance its abilities by activating it. This allows it to extend its tail infinitely to bind, lash, or impale its enemies and grants it new powers such as invisibility. Its Gatchaman form is presumably so powerful, and Paiman even states that it could potentially defeat the G-Crew.

In the twelfth episode, its suit was finally revealed in its battle against O.D. It uses a guitar-like weapon that somehow manages to pull out its opponent's inner fears as personified images of the opponent. It then stabs these images and it somehow causes severe damage to the enemy. It managed to damage O.D., but was eventually overpowered by him as the fight went on.
