The World Ends With You

Brands are fashion-based company factions that separate items like Pins and Threads into their respective factions. Each brand has their own unique theme and style, as well as at least one dedicated store (with the exception of Hip Snake, Gatito and Unbranded items in TWEWY) located within the Districts of Shibuya.

In both The World Ends with You and NEO: The World Ends with You, twelve of the named brands are based on the animals of the Chinese Zodiac, with a thirteenth brand that represents the cat in the story of the Zodiac. The only exceptions are the Mithril Scale and Maiden Innocence brands from Live Remix, croaky panic and BLACK HONEY CHILI COOKIE from NEO, and the Unbranded in both games, which doesn't have a brand at all.

Brand Popularity (TWEWY)[]

Each district ranks brands in order of popularity, which is affected through battle or by stores in that district. Pins receive damage buffs depending on the brand popularity, but threads do not.

While brand popularity is relatively random in each district, they are affected through two means: shop influence and battle influence.

Shop influence is the influence of shops within the district. If a brand is accessible through a store in that district, the popularity of that brand will usually find itself high. Especially if the main store of a certain brand is within that district, that shop's brand will be one of the more popular brands of the district. The player cannot change this factor.

The only way a player can affect the brand popularity of a district is through winning battles within that district while wearing pins and threads of that brand. After a few battles are won, the trends for that district will change based on the brands worn by the characters. Reapers will sometimes give out small missions that requires the player to change the popularity of a district through this method.

Bonuses are given to the most, second most, and third most popular brands' pins (x2.0 for Rank 1), while the least popular (rank 13) gets halved attack power. Other brands' ranks will be displayed, but their power will not be modified.

Trivia[]

    • On a Chinese Zodiac wheel chart, each animal is on the opposite side from another. With this in mind, it can be theorized that certain brands oppose each other based on actual opposites of fashion taste and choice.
    • Mus Rattus (Humility) vs Pegaso (Luxury)
    • D+B (Seasoned and Experienced) vs Sheep Heavenly (Innocence)
    • Tigre Punks (Underground) vs Jupiter of the Monkey (Mainstream)
    • Lapin Angelique (Fancy Appearance) vs Pavo Real (Useful Functionality)
    • Dragon Couture (Extravagance) vs Natural Puppy (Simplicity)
    • Hip Snake (Antique/Old-School) vs Wild Boar (Contemporary/Novelty)
  • In the Nintendo DS version of The World Ends with You, if in the 104 Building (district) area, the screen on the 104 building will display the most popular brand in the district on the top screen during battle. This will also apply to Scramble Crossing, displaying the most popular brand in the Crossing, not the one in the 104 area.
