Fighters of Lapis 7: NESTing Grounds is the latest installment in the Fighters of Lapis series, using the scrapped versions of Fighters of Lapis 7, 8, and 9 as a basis for one ultimate game. It is said to be connected to Trifecta and Parabola and serves as somewhat of a conclusion to the Fighters of Lapis and Multiverse Fighters series. Storyline elements, such as NESTs and Carly Carmine will return. Teams are mostly scrapped, as the way they were used didn't "work".
There is now a brand new slide mechanic. Use it to quickly dodge attacks with a underneath counter. Some characters have move to guard or even counter slides.
The player can create a team of four characters to use in some of the new modes. A player can save up to 10 teams to use, with a total of 80 teams overall.
The story mode of the game. Like previous story modes in the series, this features platforming and brawl fights. It has cut-scenes and trophies and synthesis items can be collected in this mode. Generally if you want to unlock most of the characters, this is one of the fastest ways.
Adventure Mode returns by having your character traverse a huge maze-like mapscreen automatically, with the player deciding between 2-5 different paths. Each path leads to a new challenge, usually facing off a character or team of characters with various effects and conditions. The player earns trophies, synthesis materials, Screws and more through this mode, as every challenge leads to a randomized reward. The harder the difficulty, the better the rewards. Here are all available difficulties:
Similar to Adventure Mode, but pits you off against fighters in succession with no choice and retains the random award system. While effects are retained in this mode, they always go in a certain order.
Boss Battle (Greg/Landshark)
You get the effects this time! Two characters will now team up against you as a huge/golden character or you get multiple lives but a ton of knockback.

In 1998, K' was made to participate in the Kusanagi cloning program. He was infused with Kyo Kusanagi's DNA, which gave him the power of pyrokinesis. During the program, K's memory was tinkered with, and he was made to believe that he was Krizalid's clone. K's fighting style is said to be "Pure Violence", but it has several similarities with Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do. He even uses some of his famous moves, such as the One inch punch and Flying Kicks. As a nod to hinting of said "violence", K's moves tend to show very violent mannerisms due to his high-strung nature. This ranges from violent elbow strikes, enraged battle cries, and even resorting to throw his sunglasses at his foe and following up with a beatdown, no holds barred.
Crimson Star Road - K’ slides forward. He disappears briefly and reappears on the other side of his foe. He gives the thumbs down and his foe is set ablaze.

Knowing that they needed more training to confront Geese, the brothers made an oath to spend a decade to fine tune their martial arts before trying to avenge their father.

She is a cybernetic clone of K's sister and once worked for NESTS as an assassin. In the 2001 novel written by Akihiko Ureshino, the real Seirah is proclaimed dead and this concept was presumably integrated into the series. She befriended Krizalid under the assumption that he was her brother before she escaped from the cartel. She used Sally as a codename to join the military. She is eventually assigned to Heidern's mercenary unit under her current name, Whip. She enters the tournament to investigate NESTS. While her team isn't present, she privately interrogates NESTS agents to find information regarding herself and the whereabouts of her brother. Once she realizes who he is, she reveals their relation to one another and joins him in his objective to destroy the NESTS cartel. She is an enigmatic and quiet individual who acts towards her own goals. Her fighting style is based on Soubenjutsu, the Japanese martial art of the use of the whip and also takes inspiration in other kinds of whip fighting. Her whip, probably designed by NESTS, can transform into a blade or a gun. She also has a concealed Desert Eagle which she can fire at the opponent.

Bullet is a member of a mercenary squad who appears to be against Sector Seven, due to an incident in the past involving Sector Seven which led to the deaths of her squad mates. Having been raised by mercenaries since she was young, she fights from one battlefield to another. Bullet wields an unnamed Ars Armagus on her arms, which she uses as armor to block attacks. But their main function is to create fireballs that she uses in some of her attacks. Yet these fireballs cannot act as projectiles unless Bullet fires them at the ground. Despite her powerful weapon, most of Bullet's attacks involve her own physical strength. While she's obviously weaker than characters like Tager or Azrael, she is strong enough to defeat other BlazBlue characters with her strength. This physical power is combined with her unique fighting style, which focuses on combos, agility, and brutality. Bullet is so vicious that she aims many of her strikes at an enemy's face or neck. Because of her lack of projectiles, Bullet focuses on rushing at an enemy at close range and then thrashing them to submission.
Hard Kill Bringer - Bullet stuns the opponent with a punch and grabs them, using her Armagus gauntlets to shoot them with explosive attacks in the face three times. She then brings them to the ground, and a large mechanism protrudes from one of her gauntlets, acting as the finishing punch.
Originally the leader of a Sector Seven assault team sent to retrieve Nirvana in the 4th Hierarchical City of Naobi, the mission was intercepted by Azrael and the man who would come to be known as Tager suffered a mortal wound during the mission. The only facts revealed about Tager during Bullet's recollection of him is that he was well-respected as a strong leader and valued as a dependable friend. Tager is noticeably the slowest character in the game, moving at a crawl and being unable to dash. Tager's strength, however, lies in his power, defense and his unique ability to magnetize opponents to draw opponents in to negate his mobility disadvantage. When in close proximity, Tager can grab his opponents, tossing them around the arena for extreme damage, or alter the properties of his grab to add additional magnetism; in addition, he is also able to grab opponents on the floor and apply additional magnetism or even go the simple route and pluck his foe out of the air and slam them on the ground. In addition to his normal electromagnetic grapples and throws, Tager can also build and hold Spark Bolt charges, allowing him to fire a large, very fast ball of pure electricity that sends any struck opponents straight towards him. His gauntlets also work to destroy most projectiles while closing distance.
King of Tager - A wickedly powerful throw. Hold button to pull in magnetized opponents. It has extremely high magnetic pull (will pull opponent in from fullscreen almost instantly) It looks like a throw, but is actually an unblockable attack (will hit airborne opponents as well as grounded ones, and cannot be teched).
Amane is a young man who travels around, gathering a troupe of young and handsome men and beautiful women as he goes. The majority of his troupe are orphans of war from around the world, which he has adopted. Amane is a friendly, respectful, and eccentric individual. He refers to battles as "dancing" and his gameplay style even resembles such. He is always on the lookout for possible fellow performers. Amane has an unusual ability that allows him to form his clothing into various shapes, although whether this is the effect of an Armagus, magic or otherwise is unknown. His Drive, Spiral, utilizes his clothing into drills that increase in power with repeated use, going from Level 1 to a maximum of Level 3, at which point his Drive begins chipping away at the opponent's defenses at an alarming rate. However, using it too much can result in it becoming overheated and will become unusable until it cools down and restarts at Level 1. Amane's Overdrive, Cyclone, maximizes his Drive's Level for its duration.
Jakutoku Meika: Gōhahōyō - Amane traps the opponent in a flower bud, and the background changes. He then poses with an umbrella as the opponent character bursts from the bud, in a much younger state (in most cases, characters like Tager are presented in parodied forms). The Astral closes with a red, green, and black curtain closing on the opponent from the side.
Relius Clover is Carl Clover and Ada Clover's father, and Ignis Clover's husband. He was a colonel in the Engineering Department for the Novus Orbis Librarium, and worked alongside Hazama as one of the main antagonists of the series until BlazBlue: Chronophantasma. Relius possesses a vast knowledge of both science and magic, and has created several weapons utilizing his intellect, such as the Murakumo Units, the Nox Nyctores named Nirvana, and his own puppet Ignis, using his own wife's body and soul as a catalyst. Armed with his immense knowledge in magic, mechanics, ars magus and his puppet Ignis, Relius has been shown to be one of the most powerful and dangerous beings in the BlazBlue universe, having fought and defeated the likes of Valkenhayn of the Six Heroes in some of their encounters and rarely showing any effort in any of his fights seen thus far.

She has a few complexes about her race, but nonetheless, she acknowledges who she is and is proud of it. Because of her Beastkin heritage, Makoto has inhuman reflexes, as well as incredible strength, being able to make an impact crater in Carl's storyline, and her Astral Heat involves her punching an opponent skyward, leaving an imprint of her fist in the moon before it splits apart. The increased strength, however, may be the result of her tonfas, Impact, which allows her to charge the strength of her blows.
