Removing Fanny (GG Petit), Leopaldon and the Zako-dan (Ikuska), and counting Dr. Baldhead/Faust, Sol Badguy/Holy Order Sol and Zato-1/Eddie only once each. I count 26 playable characters.

Here are my Tarot equivalencies: with reasons hidden

0: Fool -
I: Magician -
II: High Priestess -
III: Empress -
IV: Emporer - Robo Ky built to enforce control
V: Heirophant - Slayer almost a religous figure/dark religon
VI: Lovers - Johnny and May If Johnny gives up his womanizing he can gain May as his lover
VII: Chariot -
VIII: Strength -
IX: Hermit - ABA she comes from a secluded mountian lab seeking knowledge
X: Wheel of Fortune - Jam She is able to build her restaurant but loses it soon after
XI: Justice - Justice name and the fact "she" caused humans to identify the supposed mistake of creating the gears
XII: Hanged Man -
XIII: Death -
XIV: Temperance - Dizzy Blending of opposites, weapon that does not want to fight, Life and Death wings
XV: Devil - Zato-1/Eddie binds self to demon for power that gradually kills him (stops him from growing)
XVI: Tower -
XVII: Star -
XVIII: Moon -
XIX: Sun -
XX: Judgment - Ky He is trying to figure out what is right and wrong
XXI: World -

I will fill in others as I think more about them.

P.S. There are 2 meanings for each card the Primary and the Inverted meaning.

Sorry for the late response, but anyway...
Nice list, but I disagree on some:

X: Wheel of Fortune: I believe this card fits Zato-1/Eddie better than Jam
Reason:His luck seems to shift more often than normal people(check his story). Besides there´s the visual aspect, he resembles the tarot card in many pics of the official artwork and he´s blind(this card is often portrayed with a blind woman).

XVII: Star: Jam
Reason:The Star have to do with hopes and dreams, as Jam dreams to have her own restaurant. And there´s the unespected help, wich came from Sol, letting her take the credit for defeating Dizzy.

XV: Devil: Slayer
Reason:Even being an imortal he still cares about the material world, and there´s the visual thing.

I´m not sure, but I think the Robo-Kys could be the Minor Arcana Kings or maybe the Knights...

Also, you might be right about A.B.A.
Reason:She was free to leave home anytime, but she stayed there for 10 years.

I´ve also changed my mind about Faust: I think he might be the Magician after all.
Reason:The magician is said to represent a medicine man, and Faust´s moves involve a lot of teleporting and weird stuff, the so-called illusionism of the Magician.

That way, the Fool card would be Leopaldon.
Reason:Even though no one knows much about him, the Fool is always portrayed with his loyal dog.

And Jonny and May would be the lovers :buh:.
Also check out the first post of the thread with another list of characters :blah:.

And finally :
Just for fun!

May fortune be with you.

Looking at most of the player characters and bosses leads me to think that most of them can be covered by at least 2 cards. For example, Slayer can be considered a combination of the Heirophant and the Devil.

how about ABA? shed deffinately be the Hermit, seeing how long she spent in the science lab all on her own with nothing but that demon key.
