About 2B Costume
2B is the first playable character you will be using in NieR Automata since she is the protagonist for the game’s first chapter. She is an all-purpose battle android that carries multiple weapons that are best used in close combat. Her pod system allows her to attack from a distance as well. Her primary role in the game was to kill YoHRa No. 9 Type S in case he digs too deep into the YoHRa program because of his curious nature.
2B came to detest this act over time due to the bond that she formed with the battle android. This conflict made her a popular character in the game.

About 9S Costume
YoHRa No. 9 Type S or most commonly known as 9S is the second playable character in the game. But he was introduced in route A, as he played a support role to the battle android 2B. The skills that 9S possesses makes him better suited for the support role, considering he has excellent hacking talent. He does have combat abilities, but they’re not in par with 2B’s abilities.
He vowed to destroy all machines, including YoHRa No.2 Type A after she kills 2B in route C and he was infected with the logic virus. Unlike 2B, 9S has a more calm and kind personality. He is also more emotional than his partner. If you look at the 9S cosplay photos, you can see this personality reflect in the character’s appearance. He does have a rough side, especially when it comes to supporting and protecting 2B.
