GlitterForce Wikia

Brute (Akaoni in the original Japanese version), is one of the main antagonists in Glitter Force.

Along with Ulric and Brooha, he is one of the three former commanders of The Shadow Realm.

His appearance is based on red trolls in Japanese folklore.


Brute resembles a typical red ogre from Japanese folktales, with red skin, horns, fangs, and pointed ears. He is dressed in coarse brown cloth and tiger-skin with leather belts. In terms of size, he is the largest of the 3 Shadow Realm commanders, towering over the Glitter Force.


He is brutal but seems to be somewhat serious. He is always scolded by Brooha for messing up her inventions. His target is frequently Glitter Peace because she is the crybaby of the group, but when Brute fights Glitter Peace, he always loses.


  • Shadow Realm Generals - Brute often annoys Brooha with the carelessness of her inventions. Every time he doesn't know what they are or how to use it, he tosses them out of the Shadow Realm without a second thought. He share many of the same interests with Ulric such as giant robots and how uninspired the names of Brooha’s inventions are.
  • Glitter Peace - Being a strong ogre that preys on the weak, Brute often bullies Peace by taunting and belittling her due to her frightened and crybaby nature.


Brute was originally a pixie named Rufus, but as the troll who played the role of a fairy tale villain, he was mistreated by the other fairy tale creatures, until Rascal turned him into Brute to serve Nogo.

Brute is the second one to attack the Glitter Force. After two episodes, Brooha took over, and after all of the Glitter Force had awakened, Brute, Ulric, and Brooha would either take turns attacking the Glitter Force and gathering dark energy for Nogo, or else attack together.

Quite often he is responsible for throwing away Brooha's inventions, which are found by the Glitter Force.

At the end of Season 1, he fights Glitter Peace, who defeats him, though he survives. Near the end of Season 2, he attacks her while she's separated from the others, but is defeated by the Glitter Force.

In the final episode, he is purified by Glitter Lucky and turned back into Rufus.


Brute can use his metal staff to create strong gusts of wind. It is as yet unknown whether he uses it in physical combat as well.

Using a piece of the Black Paint of Darkness, Brute can darken a blank page of his Picture Book of Darkness (symbolizes the brand new future). This changes the world into an evil alternate reality with a red sky and dark red clouds, causing people to lose their will to live and emit Bad Energy. Brute collects this negative Energy in hopes of reviving the Evil King Nogo.

He can also create Buffoon monsters using the Red Noses, which contain a Glitter Charm piece within.


The name Brute could be a reference to him using "brute force" to defeat the Glitter Force.

His Japanese name, Akaoni, (赤鬼) is translated to "red demon".


  • Brute shares his English voice actor with Ulric and Rascal.
  • His Japanese mascot name is Oninin.
