* ''Dejiko'', aka Di Gi Charat, aka Chocola: The titular protagonist, princess of planet Di Gi Charat and aspiring idol. However, she is less than princess-like. Can shoot EyeBeams. She will use them any time, on ''any'' being who annoys her. She has a VerbalTic and ends everything she says with "-nyo".
* ''Puchiko'', aka Petit Charat, aka Capucchino: Supposed {{sidekick}} of Dejiko and inhabitant of her planet. Her {{EyeBeams}} ability is weaker than Dejiko's, but she compensates with extra cuteness and a sharp tongue. Often HypercompetentSidekick to Dejiko. Another VerbalTic here; she ends her sentences with "-nyu". She is a subversion of the quiet and shy moe girl, in that she is ''so'' quiet that she is often completely withdrawn from everything around her, and when she does speak, she tends to be quite rude.
* ''Gema'': A big floating yellow ball with a simple, tiny, upside-down face. Long-suffering NonHumanSidekick and failed [[{{Mentors}} mentor]], usually the victim of Dejiko's eye beam. He ends all his sentences with "-gema".
* ''"Rabi~en~Rose"'': Real name, Hikaru Usada. Sometimes TheRival to Dejiko, sometimes a WorthyOpponent. A [[{{Muggles}} young human]] teenager, also an aspiring idol, with a bunny-like [[CosplayOtakuGirl cosplay]] and a sob-story backstory that changes depending on the franchise's incarnation. One of the few characters who ''doesn't'' have a VerbalTic. She is a parody of the typical "rival" character in anime, in that she's more sympathetic than Dejiko and often shows superior skill, yet she still loses most of the time because she's not the main character.

In a huge subversion, however, Dejiko's personality turned out to be the complete opposite of the cutesy-innocent moe girl she appears to be. She does her best to appear sweet, but when provoked (and it doesn't take much) she can be vain, petty, argumentative, selfish, and downright violent. She often takes out her frustrations by physically abusing her guardian, a floating sphere named Gema, or firing eyebeams at those who annoy her. She does have a good heart deep down, though, and the show's borderline-surreal sense of humor [[{{rule of funny}} plays her anti-social tendencies for laughs]], so somehow Dejiko manages to be endearing despite it all.
