Excel is in love with Il Palazzo to an obssesive degree, and gladly carries out any assignments he gives her. Unfortunately for Il Palazzo, Excel's love does not supercede her stupidity or hyperactivity. Excel will fail at any mission given to her, usually doing a lot of collateral damage. Same goes for all part time jobs Excel is hired for. Any success Excel has will be accidental.

To be fair to Excel, Hyatt is far more likely to die from ''holding'' a gun than do anything useful with it.

The third member of ACROSS, only seen in the manga. Elgala was hired in volume 8 and proved to be just as bad at her job as her seniors.

Elgala is very vain and materialistic, which constantly puts her at odds with Excel's extreme penny pinching.

* TheAlcoholic: She loves her booze. Unfortunately, she tends to do ''really'' stupid things when she's drunk – like withdraw Excel's entire savings from an ATM and give it to some random guy.



* BuxomIsBetter: As her first character insert describes--"Bust - larger than Excel, Waist - Smaller than Excel, Hips - Classified". She certain sees ''herself'' as more attractive (synonymous with valuable in her mind) than Excel, and gets more notice for her efforts among the masses (for better and worse).
** GagBoobs: Of a "smaller" variety (compared to Dr. Shiouji's female relations anyway), but still large enough that Excel regularly describes them as "parasitic fatty mammaries" and becomes (violently) angry when they're gainaxing, and that they get her into [[MsFanservice embarrassing situations]].

It doesn't mean she's [[AlphaBitch always pleasant]], but she's far more balanced and reasonable to others than her fanatical senior is.

Menchi spends most of the time either trying to escape from their apartment or being frightened by Excel and Hyatt, though she gets along a bit better with Elgala.

Watanabe is characterized by three things: his desire to live a normal, financially stable life among the increasing chaos that surrounds him, his infatuation with his neighbor Ms. Ayasugi (Hyatt, but he does not know her real name), and his dislike of his friends Iwata and Sumiyoshi. He went to work for Kabapu in the hopes of getting a civil servant job, not realizing that it would put him in direct opposition of the group Hyatt works for.

Watanabe's "friend". Iwata is dumb as a brick and barrels into everything with enthusiasm and not a lot of forethought. Iwata is either oblivious or does not care that Watanabe hates him, and hangs out in his apartment regardless. He joined the Department of City Security because Watanabe did. As a member of Daitenzin Iwata is usually the first to run into a mission and mess everything up.

In the manga Iwata dies (abruptly and without warning from colon cancer) and has his mind put into an android body by Dr. Shioji. Being an android makes Iwata a lot less concerned with his safety and he often is destroyed, to Dr. Shioji's annoyance, since he is the one who has to rebuild Iwata. His robot body gives him lots of nifty gadgets like a built-in radio and night vision. He can also transfer his consciousness to Ropponmatsu II, though he never does intentionally.
