Blanc (ブラン, Buran), also known as White Heart (ホワイトハート, Howaito Hāto), is the Console Patron Unit (CPU) of Lowee. She represents Nintendo home consoles which is referenced through her appearance in both forms, her processor units, and some of her dialogue.
Due to the Neptunia series being a game that revolves around different universes and dimensions, there are multiple Blanc's throughout the series though all of them retain more or less the same personalities and core aspects regardless of the setting.
- White Heart's Theme: In Hyperdimension Neptunia, White Heart has her own theme composed by Kenji Kaneko that plays during her boss battles during the main story of the game. Unlike the other CPU boss battle themes, Blanc's theme does not appear on the Hyperdimension Neptunia OST. White Heart's theme has a very festive, carnival sound to it. This is most likely to fit the look of her landmass and the fact that Nintendo is known for its party games.
- Blanc's Theme: In Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, Blanc has her own theme composed by Kenji Kaneko. Like most of the other character themes, Blanc's theme does appear on the Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory OST as the twentieth track. Her theme plays during her boss battle fight.

If A Goddess was Your Wife
On the If A Goddess Was Your Wife drama CD, Blanc has been neglecting her husband in favor of reading books. When she finally takes a break from the book she is reading, she inquires as to what he needs for her. Her husband commons on the lack of skin-ship in their relationship which surprises Blanc to an extent due to being perfectly happy just reading with him all the time and not doing anything else. Understanding with the problem, Blanc begins to think of a way to solve the issue.
She recalls one of the romance novels she read in the past having a similar situation and decides to allow him to rest his head her lap so that he can have his skin-ship while the two of them both carry on with their books. She becomes flustered by this due to having allowed a guy to rest on her lap before, however she also believes it isn't too bad.
As she resumes her book, Blanc notices how her husband is just staring at her face instead of at his book and says that he's making her curious and unable to read her book properly. When her husband says looking at her face is more interesting than the book, she become flustered for a second time and tells him that her face isn't for show and that he should just go to sleep if he's bored of reading.
Blanc tries to read her book again but is distracted by the way he is moving his head in her lap. She then gets upset and tells him not to get carried away just because she's letting him rest on her lap before knocking him unconscious. She believes that maybe she got a bit too carried away, but then decides that he deserved what he got. Blanc allows him to rest on her lap unconscious while she continues to finally read her book in peace.
