Data is a recurring enemy type in the Hyperdimension Neptunia series. Enemies under this type have been present since Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 but no proper name was established until Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory. These tend to be abstract entities based on CG models or animate game screens.
Data type enemies sometimes possess support abilities, which they'll use to increase the stats of their comrades. Some also seem to have high magical (or at least elemental) defenses.
Being constructs of abstract interfaces, Data enemies appear in a number of forms:
- Visual Novel: Appears as a flat screen depicting a still image from a visual novel, with a detached dialogue box to use for attacks.
- Deus Man: Strange hovering middle-aged balding men wearing a starship-like ornament around their waist.
- Shadow: Stick figures wielding musical instruments in the shape of various character glyphs, such as $ signs.
- Super FX: Large polygonal heads with stylized eyeglasses and a grinning expression.
