[[folder:Diary Holders: 1-6]]

!!'''Yukiteru Amano - The First'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yukiter_8323.png
->'''Voiced by:''' Misuzu Togashi (JP), Creator/JoshGrelle (EN)

A timid boy who views life as though he were a casual bystander. His "Indiscriminate Diary" records future observations about everything and everyone around him, although it usually doesn't record any information about himself except for his DEAD END. At first he's unwilling to participate in the Diary game, but Deus still considers him the favorite to win. He has an...interesting relationship with Yuno.
----
* AccidentalPervert: When he first meets Hinata, he trips and his hand lands on her pants and pulls them down, revealing her underwear to the class.
* ActionSurvivor: Being in the Survival Game with all the rest of the diary holders setting their sights on him forces Yuki to fight in order to survive.
* {{Adorkable}}: He is very shy and awkward.
* AllLovingHero: [[spoiler:In the final battle, he decides to try to give everyone a happy ending by protecting third world Yuno from Yuno without killing her. At the end, the only person he didn't manage to save was Yuno who chooses to commit suicide instead of killing him.]]
* [[spoiler:AllPowerfulBystander: After becoming god, he does nothing besides mourning Yuno's death for 10,000 years.]]
* AntiHero: Being an {{Expy}} of [[NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji Ikari]] and [[BlackLagoon Rock]] he slides down the scale.
** ClassicalAntiHero: At first. Though he cares for others, for all the power that his diary gives him he is very reluctant to act.
** [[spoiler:UnscrupulousHero: Becomes this later during the series. After Yuki loses his parents, he becomes willing to kill his enemies in very cruel and nasty ways. However, Yuki actually doesn't want to kill people and wants to bring everyone back to life once he becomes god, not knowing it's impossible.]]
** [[spoiler:KnightInSourArmor: By the end of the series.]]
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: "Yuno! Do you really love me? Or are you just insane?"
* [[spoiler:AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: Becomes god after winning the Survival Game.]]
* BadassAdorable: Comes with being a timid {{Adorkable}} ActionSurvivor.
* BadassAndChildDuo: Strikes this with Minene [[spoiler:especially during the FinalBattle]].
* BadassDriver: Becomes this later in the series at the age of [[ImprobableAge 14]]. Just look his car chase against [[spoiler: Eleventh]].
* BadassOnPaper: Killing Third put him in the running for among Deus's prime choices for potential godhood. It also makes him a prime target for the other diary owners. He's also killed [[spoiler: 6th and 4th]] along the way. Not bad for a CowardlyLion who spends most of his time [[TearsOfFear crying]] and running scared.
* BadassPacifist: In the final battle, Yuki is unwilling to kill [[spoiler:Yuno]], but he won't allow her to harm [[spoiler: her third world self]].
* BadassUnintentional: Taking out Hiyama was only an act of self defense but by doing so made him the prime candidate to win by Deus. Thus made the all the rest of the diary holders set their sights on him.
* BattleCouple: After he becomes more competent in combat and his relationship with Yuno solidifies, he forms this dynamic with her.
* BerserkButton: Whenever his parents are harmed, Yuki can go quite crazy.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Yuki is a nice and shy boy, but can fight back in self defense and later he starts to go quite crazy.
* BreakTheCutie: Happens several times to Yuki. Most notably when, [[spoiler: he forgives his father for killing his mother, and everyone looks like it is going to be alright until John Balks' hitmen assassinate Yuki's dad]].
* CluelessChickMagnet: There have been at least five characters who've either flirted with, kissed, or shown attraction to Yuki throughout the series, and more blatantly, the fact that the SchoolIdol ''[[StalkerWithACrush was stalking him for a year]]'' without the least notice on his part.
* CowardlyLion: Yuki spends the vast majority of his time running, crying and screaming from the people determined to kill him, but he can fight back when cornered.
* CradleOfLoneliness: [[spoiler:He is so crippled by the loss of Yuno that he just sits there staring at the last entry in his diary "Yuno died" for 10,000 years.]]
* CynicismCatalyst: After [[spoiler:his father kills his mother in a moment of extreme stress and desperation]], Yuki is left devastated. But it's [[spoiler:the death of his father at the hands of the Eleventh's henchmen just after he had apologized to him]] that prompts Yuki to momentarily go berserk, start fighting back, trust Yuno to the full, and resolve to become God.
* {{Dandere}}: Seems to be one of these, tying in with being a LonerTurnedFriend.
* DeadpanSnarker: In the English dub.
* DeathGlare:
** In episode 14 he delivers one very angry glare to [[spoiler:Yuno after he escapes from the chair to which she had bound him]].
** Another to [[spoiler:the Eleventh's men]] in episode 18.
* [[spoiler:DeathSeeker: In the final battle, Yuki asks Yuno to kill him so she can become the god of the second world. However, Yuno chooses to kill herself instead so Yuki can live. Yuki spends the following 10,000 years mourning the fact of not being able to save her.]]
* DesignatedVictim: Considers himself this in early chapters, often being put in situations he does not want to be in. This trope comes and goes over the course of the story.
* {{Determinator}}: Shows shades of this later. In the final battle he declares he will save Yuno no matter what.
* [[spoiler:DoppelgangerReplacementLoveInterest: To Yuno.]]
* TheDulcineaEffect: Towards Tsubaki, quickly jumping in to save her and escape with her despite having just met her. It's not until [[spoiler: she makes it obvious that she's actually a ManipulativeBitch that wants to kill him that he decides to go back to teaming up with Yuno.]]
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Just like Yuno, Aru Akise is madly in love with him.
* {{Expy}}: A combination of [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji Ikari]] and [[Manga/BlackLagoon Rock]].
* ExtremeDoormat: Initially he views himself as a spectator from the sidelines and doesn't does much to fight back. This manifests in the power of his Diary, which see only the future of the world around him.
* FireForgedFriends: With Minene. They develop a LikeBrotherAndSister relationship after going through many fights together.
* [[spoiler:GodCouple: With third world Yuno, who is given first world Yuno's memories and becomes god to save him from spending eternity in the void the second world has become.]]
* GrewASpine: Tries to be more self-assertive and confident throughout the series. [[spoiler:This backfires horribly.]]
* HeroicBSOD:
** Yuki goes into a severe depression after [[spoiler:his mother is killed by his father]]. [[http://www.mangareader.net/384-26052-34/mirai-nikki/chapter-33.html Boy ]] [[http://www.mangareader.net/384-26053-36/mirai-nikki/chapter-34.html howdy]].
** In the anime, Yuki performs a SkywardScream upon [[spoiler:learning Yuno killed her second self]].
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: He often states "I know I'm pathetic! I know it! But...I'm weak!".
* [[ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe I Can't Believe A Girl Like You Would Notice Me]]: When Yuno looks his way for a moment in the first episode, he quickly brushes it off with "Nah, can't be," and is genuinely surprised that she even knew his name[[note]]Oddly, he's shown conversing with her once [[FlashBack a year prior to the third episode]][[/note]]. Of course, his reaction to learning [[StalkerWithACrush the truth]] [[{{Yandere}} of the matter]] is a little less than enthusiastic.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: He wishes to overcome his shy behaviour and make friends. Too bad Yuno wants to be his OnlyFriend...
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxbwbRAssKg You are Your Life's Leading Part, so Walk with Confidence]]
* ImprobableWeaponUser: He uses hand darts! Very good at it from years of practice at home.
* InnocentBlueEyes: He's the most heroic of the diary holders and he's one of the few characters with blue eyes.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Minene.
* KidWithTheLeash: The only one who can ground Yuno in anyway.
* KissOfDeath: If you're not Yuno Gasai, kissing Yuki is a great way to get yourself killed. [[spoiler: Tsubaki and Akise learned the hard way]]
* LikeParentLikeSpouse: His first crush looks a lot like his mom.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: To Yuno. [[spoiler:When he jokingly accepted her wedding proposal, it gave her a reason to live.]]
* [[spoiler:LonelyAtTheTop: Enforced and {{Justified|Trope}}. Yukiteru had to kill the last person who was important to him, Yuno, and became god of the empty second world.]]
* LonersAreFreaks: Gets this treatment at school due to his own asocial personality. However, he does try to get better and make friends. Unfortunately, Yuno won't let anyone get close to Yuki.
* LonerTurnedFriend: He manages to make a small group of friends with Akise, Hinata and Mao ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Kosaka]]). However, [[spoiler:he ends up killing them in his quest for Godhood]].
* LoveMakesYouCrazy: Later, Yuki goes quite crazy for his [[spoiler:dead]] parents AND Yuno.
* LoveMartyr: Once he genuinely falls for Yuno, the sheer amount of ''crap'' he puts up with from her while still sticking loyally by her side most definitely makes him this.
* MeaningfulName: His last name contains the kanji for "heaven" and can be read as "heavenly field". It's fitting, considering his first name is a corruption of "Jupiter", the Roman GodOfGods. When his full name is roughly translated into Latin it becomes Jupiter Caelus/Jupiter Caelestis, two of Jupiter's known epithets. [[spoiler:He ends up winning the game of the second world among the other potential gods.]]
* NecessarilyEvil: Yuki becomes willing to kill the other diary owners if it means [[spoiler:resurrecting his parents]], although he admits he does not wish to do so, but is equally afraid to [[spoiler:face life without them]].
* [[spoiler:{{Necromantic}}: His eventual reason for trying to win the game is to bring his parents back to life.]]
* NiceHat: He occasionally wears a brown hat atop.
* NoGuyWantsToBeChased: Yukiteru makes it very obvious that Yuno's insanely aggressive obsession and pursuit of him is what puts him off and scares him away from her. Numerous times, he suggests that if she were to be more passive and gentle, he would fall for her completely in an instant.
* NonActionGuy: In the beginning, he leaves most of the fighting to Yuno, though it's [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]] since even then he offs three other diary owners even before [[TookALevelInBadass taking a level in badass]]. This is subverted later on when he becomes more competent in combat and even fights alongside with Yuno.
* NonActionSnarker: In the English dub.
* OfficialCouple: With Yuno.
* OnlySaneMan: Out of all the diary holders, he appears to be the most sane and rational. However as the series goes on, he slowly begins to slip.
* [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Ordinary Middle School Student]]: Before the Survival Game, there was nothing really abnormal about his life.
* PleasePutSomeClothesOn: His default reaction to Yuno being PantsFree, [[WalkingSwimsuitScene in a]] SlipperySwimsuit, or ''undressing right in front of him'', though never verbally.
* TheProtagonist: He is the first and main protagonist in the series.
* {{Protectorate}}: Yuno's top priority is to protect Yuki at any cost.
* SanitySlippage: Through the series Yuki tries his best to stay clear of the violence going on around him, but finally give in after [[spoiler:the death of his parents. But the final straw is when his friends tell him he can't resurrect the dead even as god, which had been how he justified the NecessaryEvil of killing the rivals in the game.]]
* SayMyName: Yuki escapes from [[spoiler:Yuno's LotusEaterMachine]] by [[spoiler:turning down the opportunity to go stargazing with his parents]] and screaming Yuno's name.
* SharedFamilyQuirks: All of the [[CowardlyLion spineless]] traits come from his dad, which is balanced with his mom's niceness.
* ShrinkingViolet: A rare male example. Part of his CharacterDevelopment involves standing up for himself, on his own.
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:He hijacks the entire future of the third Survival game when he follows Yuno to the third world, since his data entries in the second game show up in third world's John Balks's diary and warn him of the incoming disasters. It changes every diary holder's future and gives them happy endings.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Yuno calls him "Yuki" or "Yukki", depending on which version you're reading. Also, in messages and diary entries, ユッキ― is normally used, which is romanized as "Yukkii".
* StarCrossedLovers: With Yuno, since one of them needs to die to complete the Survival Game. [[spoiler:At the end, Yuno dies to ensure Yuki lives, but her memories are given to her third world self and she becomes god to be with Yuki.]]
* SupportingProtagonist: He's the point of view character, but the one who takes more action in the story is Yuno. Later he [[TookALevelInBadass Takes A Level In Badass]] and becomes more prominent for the plot.
* TearsOfFear: He tends to cry in fear often in the beginning.
* TookALevelInBadass: Hey, it was bound to happen eventually. He ditches the darts in favor of a sub-machine gun, for one.
* TragicDream: Yukiteru's dream is to someday go stargazing with his parents together as a family, but that dream became impossible ever since they got a divorce [[spoiler:and died]]. When [[spoiler:he is trapped inside Yuno's LotusEaterMachine]], Yukiteru almost gets his dream but at the end, he chooses [[spoiler:Yuno]] instead.
* TurnTheOtherCheek: Yuki's quite willing to give second chances, especially towards Yuno. A lot. The major example is when he ''very'' quickly forgives [[spoiler:his father for ''killing his mother'']].
* TheUnfettered: Becomes this throughout the course of the series.
* UnholyMatrimony: With Yuno, eventually.
* WeakButSkilled: For a long time he's not much of a fighter, but Yuki is among the most skilled at using his diary both in and out of combat.
* [[spoiler:WellIntentionedExtremist: Later, Yuki does really extreme things like tricking Eighth and massacring her orphans in the name of becoming God and bring everyone who died back to life.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Yuno gets called out by Yuki all the time, but especially for [[spoiler:kidnapping him and keeping him locked up for a week to "protect" him]].
* YoureInsane: To Yuno after [[spoiler:she tells she will kill him so she can go back in time again]].

!!'''Yuno Gasai - The Second'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mirai-nikki_yuno-gasai_640x960-7_4458.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' Tomosa Murata (JP), Creator/BrinaPalencia (EN)

An [[{{Yandere}} insane]], [[AxCrazy violent]], {{sociopath}}ic, [[StrawNihilist nihilistic]] classmate of Yuki's who's obsessively stalking him, claiming to be madly in love with him. Her "Yukiteru Diary" tells her what's happening to Yuki at every 10-minute interval, and won't show anything unrelated to him except for her own DEAD END. Since Yuki's diary records everything except what happens to him, the two of them presumably make a formidable team. If only she was more comforting to be around...
----
* AbductionIsLove: [[spoiler: Yuno drugs and kidnaps Yuki to protect him until July 28th, chaining him to a chair. Yuki eventually breaks free thanks to his friends, and abandons Yuno. It doesn't last though.]]
* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Yuno is typically armed with a variety of kitchen implements, but the damage she does with them is out of this world.
* AbusiveParents: Although only her mother was the abusive one. Due to her father Ushio staying away at work, her mother Saika abused her, wanting her to become the "perfect citizen". Eventually going as far as timing everything she did, from sleeping to eating, and locking her in a cage where she left Yuno to starve.
* [[spoiler:AccidentalMurder: When Yuno finally got fed up of Saika's abuse, she locked Saika and Ushio in the same cage Saika locked her, hoping they would realize how she felt and change back to their old selves. They didn't, and eventually died of hunger.]]
* ActionGirlfriend: Almost immediately after stumbling into The Game, Yukiteru encounters Yuno who makes it her top priority to protect him from harm and is the one who does most of the fighting in the beginning. The only thing that stops her from being a straight example is the fact that she's a {{Yandere}} who is batshit frickin' ''insane''.
* AggressiveSubmissive: She is very direct and aggressive towards Yukiteru, but when she [[spoiler:finally "becomes one" with him]] she becomes super-shy.
* TheAllSolvingHammer:
** Yuno often resorts to pulling out her knife to deal with troubling situations.
** She uses a literal hammer to [[spoiler:ScrewDestiny and smash apart the space-time continuum to rescue Yukiteru at the end of the manga]].
* AllTakeAndNoGive: The true nature of her relationship with Yuki. Yuki uses Yuno as a guard whilst Yuno uses Yuki as emotional support. Eventually Yuno acknowledges this [[spoiler:and tries to convince herself and Yuki that their love has been fake, and they have been merely using one another, so he gives up on her and she can kill him to go back in time without regrets. She fails to convince Yuki or herself and it turns out that maybe their love isn't that meaningless after all.]]
* [[spoiler:AlternateTimeline: The Yuno that's currently obsessed with 'Yukki' is from one, and the third corpse in her house is the Yuno from the current world.]]
* [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl Always Save the Guy]]: Yuno will do ''anything'' to protect Yukiteru.
* AntiVillain: Yuno certainly is a batshit crazy {{Yandere}}, but she can come off as sympathetic due to her past and the circumstances she must face in the series. However, many of her actions [[KickTheDog go beyond justifiable]] and make it hard to actually sympathize with her.
* [[spoiler:AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: She already became god by winning the Survival Game in the first world. Her third world self also becomes god.]]
* AttractivenessIsolation: In her backstory in the anime. The manga on the other hand averts this; it is shown that before the main story started several of her schoolmates tried to ask her out, but she turned them all down.
* AxeCrazy: Especially when she thinks her relationship with Yukiteru is threatened.
* AnAxeToGrind: Her most iconic weapon probably due to the fact it's a good way to show how psychotic and violent she is.
* BadassAdorable: She is beautiful, adorably {{Moe}}, extremely in love with Yukiteru and incredibly skilled in combat.
** [[spoiler:And the third world Yuno appears to have inherited the first world Yuno's skill in combat, if her brief (and seemingly one-sided) fight against Akise in the Redial OVA is any indication.]]
* BadassInDistress: During her fight against Sixth, [[spoiler:Yuno is taken captive by Tsubaki and almost raped by her followers]].
* BadassLongRobe: During [[spoiler:the final battle]], she wears a black robe.
* BandageBabe: Yuno is wearing multiple bandages during the battle versus 7th in Chapter 33.
* TheBaroness: She's definitely got the Sexpot type appearance and age but has the fear factor of the Rosa Klebb type. She's young and attractive, and yearns for [[TheHero Yukiteru]]. Yuki himself though is downright terrified of her, [[spoiler:but she kills herself to let Yuki live.]]
* BattleCouple: With Yuki.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Yuno's devotion to Yukiteru stems from him jokingly making a marriage proposal to her [[spoiler:right after she killed her parents, spurring her into devoting her future to him]].
* BerserkButton: Threaten or harm Yukiteru in any way, and Yuno goes into an UnstoppableRage that you will most likely not survive. And should you [[BigRedButton kiss Yukiteru right in front of her]], you '''will''' die.
* [[spoiler:[[BigBadFriend Big Bad Girlfriend]]: In the last few chapters, Yuno becomes Yukiteru's final enemy after he refuses to kill her and he discovers she is actually the Yuno from an AlternateTimeline.]]
* [[spoiler:BodyBackupDrive: After being DrivenToSuicide, [=MurMur=] and Deus from the third world combine first Yuno's memories with her third world self's body so she can become god and save Yukiteru.]]
* BodyguardCrush: Yuki uses Yuno as his bodyguard during the Survival Game, while Yuno is glad to use this as an excuse to be with him all the time.
* BrokenAce: She's smart, beautiful, diligent and an extremely dangerous AxCrazy {{Yandere}}.
* BrokenBird: Yuno is incredibly broken from having to [[spoiler:kill her parents, going through the survival game once before, losing the only person that gave her a reason to live (Yukiteru), and having to go through it all ''again,'' killing her past self in the process]].
* CassandraTruth: When Yuki refuses to listen to her warnings about [[spoiler:Tsubaki and her followers]].
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: In the manga at least, [[spoiler:by the time of the last fight with Eleventh in the second world]] her fighting experience made her strong enough to cut grown men [[spoiler:(in this case Eleventh's mooks)]] in half with a sword. In one case she is shown cutting a man in half while holding her sword with one hand.
** [[spoiler:The third world's Yuno appears to have inherited this to some degree, if her fight against Akise is any indication. Though whether or not she inherited the strength as well as the agility remains to be seen.]]
* ClingyJealousGirl: She won't let anyone, male or female, get close to her beloved Yuki. Yuki's mother is a notable lucky one, since she was nice to Yuno and approved of their relationship.
* ClothingDamage: When [[spoiler:Tsubaki orders her followers to strip and gang-rape Yuno]].
* [[spoiler:CouldntFindAPen: When the first Yuno performs a time leap to the second world and kills her second self, the latter writes "Help!" on the wall using her own blood.]]
* CreepyChild: A 14 year old girl who appears cute and childish on the surface, but is actually extremely murderous and more intelligent than she lets on.
* CreepyMonotone: In the English dub.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Pink hair and eyes.
* CuteAndPsycho: Her normal appearance, high pitch voice, and "cute" mannerisms only help underline how ''nuts'' she is when she snaps and makes her even creepier.
* CuteBruiser: How she can lop off body part after body part with just kitchen cutlery is anyone's guess.
* DarkActionGirl: She is one of the strongest fighters in the game and also a terrifying psychopath.
* DarkIsEvil: Appearance-wise, although her name's meanings have connections with [[LightIsNotGood light]].
* [[spoiler:DeadPersonImpersonation: She impersonates herself!]]
* [[spoiler:DeathSeeker: Not outright stated, but Yuno heavily implies that she wants Yukiteru to be the winner of the game in the second world, rather than win it herself and repeat the whole scenario a third time. She only tries to kill him when he absolutely refuses to take her life, and she decides to repeat the game in the third world for another shot at setting him up to win while spending more time with him again. And even then, when Yukiteru told her to just stab him and be the winner of the second world's game, she decides to just [[DrivenToSuicide kill herself]] anyway.]]
* DeclarationOfProtection: She swears to protect Yukiteru at any cost.
* {{Deuteragonist}}
* [[spoiler:DiedInYourArmsTonight: Yuno dies in Yuki's arms after she stabs herself.]]
* DissonantSerenity: She's ''famous'' for this. She can do the worse things while wearing the brightest smile on her face.
* TheDogBitesBack: [[spoiler:Saika's abuse made Yuno snap and she (unintentionally) killed Saika and Ushio.]]
* [[spoiler:DoppelgangerReplacementLoveInterest: Her third world self to Yuki.]]
* [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide: Unwilling to kill Yuki, Yuno stabs herself to ensure he lives.]]
* DullEyesOfUnhappiness: In episode 11 of the anime when [[spoiler: she and Yuki are taken into the police station for questioning]] her eyes go dull when she decides to try to find a weapon.
* ElevatorSnare: In their first meeting in the series, Yuno forces her way into an elevator, corners the terrified Yuki, and then gives him his FirstKiss. Cue the UncomfortableElevatorMoment, at least for Yuki.
* EvilLaughter: She can't help herself from this after she successfully [[spoiler: manipulates Yuki to kill Hinata.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilOrphan: Saika and Ushio weren't her biological parents, they adopted her.]]
* EvilSoundsDeep: Much like [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} B.B. Hood/Bulleta]], Yuno goes from squeaky and adorable to guttural and menacing whenever she's incredibly pissed.
* FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon
* FanServicePack: Yuno went from having an appropriately-sized chest for a middle schooler (fairly small in the beginning) to having large breasts in the course of about two chapters.
* FauxAffablyEvil: At school she is seen as a SchoolIdol and is very nice to everyone around her. But when you get to know her, you realize she is actually a {{sociopath}}ic, [[ManipulativeBitch Manipulative]], AxCrazy {{Yandere}}.
* FeminineWomenCanCook: Uses it to impress Yukiteru's mother. How feminine she is is up for debate though, considering her fallback plan if that didn't work was to use her "tools."
* ForcefulKiss: Steals Yukiteru's FirstKiss during their first meeting in the series.
* ForTheEvulz: Some of her killings can be best reasoned as this.
* GasChamber: In a surprising change from the manga, [[spoiler:Yuno traps Akise, Mao and Kosaka in a room which is filling with gas. In the manga, she filled it with concrete.]]
* GirlishPigtails: Subverted. They make her seem cute and innocent at first, but she quickly shows her true colours later on.
* GirlWithPsychoWeapon: Though, unlike other {{Yandere}}s, she doesn't seem to have an iconic weapon. She is most commonly portrayed with the [[AnAxeToGrind axe]] that she wields in the battle against the Sixth, though.
* [[spoiler:GodCouple: Her third world self with Yuki.]]
* [[spoiler:GodIsDead: She had already become god in the first world, but dies by committing suicide to ensure Yuki lives.]]
* [[spoiler:GodIsEvil: The psycho {{Yandere}} was the one who became god in the first world.]]
* [[spoiler:GodWasMyCopilot: For Yuki. Unlike most cases of this trope, an evil influence. However she has little power in this world.]]
* GoodGirlGoneBad
* GoThroughMe: Yuno is more than willing to put herself on the line to protect Yuki.
* GreenEyedMonster: She already showed signs of this before the games began. It's very evident that she's jealous of Yuki's friends and [[spoiler: even though they don't need to die to complete the game she tricks Yuki into killing them all and beheads Akise herself]].
* GuileHeroine: Has an impressive bout against the Twelfth by taking advantage of his heightened sense of hearing.
* HairDecorations: Her red ribbons.
* [[spoiler:HeartwarmingOrphan: Her third world self.]]
* [[spoiler:HeelRealization: Realizes just how warped she's become once she sees her family in the third world come together again to protect her younger self. [[IgnoredEpiphany However, she believes herself to be too far gone for redemption and makes a suicidal move to try to kill them all with the threat of Kurusu shooting her dead.]] [[ZigzaggedTrope She eventually settles on stabbing herself and letting Yukiteru live instead.]]]]
* [[spoiler:HotGoddess: She is the one who became God in the first world and also quite attractive.]]
* HyperAwareness: She was able to tell her and Yuki's food was poisoned... ''by feeling that the cherry tomatoes were too heavy''... ''while balancing it on her fork.''
* HypercompetentSidekick: She has much more experience in the Diary Game than Yukiteru does and she does most of the fighting.
* IllKillYou: [[spoiler: "ARU AKISE, YOU WILL DIE HERE AND NOW!"]]
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jlb8eq_WSP8 Red Love]] for her {{Yandere}} self and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1retTd8LDY Happy Love]] for her normal self.
* IndifferentBeauty: Yuno is aware of how popular she is at school, but she doesn't care.
* InLoveWithLove: Her obsession with Yukiteru is an extremely warped version of this. She just wants to make sure he will marry her so she can have some hope for the future.
* InsaneEqualsViolent: Probably the craziest and most violent character in the series.
* [[spoiler:InterruptedSuicide: She actually tries to kill herself seconds before her death, provoking the third world Kurusu into firing a bullet at her. [=MurMur=] saves her.]]
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: She says she's willing to die for Yuki to ensure he wins the game, and even offers to let him kill her. [[spoiler:She also goes through with it when Yukiteru flat out suggests she should kill him so she can have a place in this world.]]
* KnifeNut: The knife is one of her main weapons.
* KubrickStare: After [[spoiler:Yuki discovers the room in her house that contains the corpses of her parents and her second world self]], Yuno gives Yuki a seriously terrifying glare through his letterbox - while wishing him a ''good night''.
* LackOfEmpathy: To everyone other than Yukiteru. When [[spoiler:Tsubaki]] told her that she was going to destroy the world after becoming god Yuno's only gripe with that was that it would also kill Yukiteru. Late in the series she outright states that she doesn't care how many more people she'll kill in the future, because they are all useless pawns [[spoiler:and because they'll be revived anyway after she goes back in time again (ignoring the fact that [[AlternateTimeline technically they would be different people]])]].
* LadyMacbeth
* [[spoiler:LastKiss: Before dying, Yuno asks Yuki to kiss her one last time.]]
* [[spoiler:LittleMissAlmighty]]
* LongingLook: Her intoxicated expression as [[DeclarationOfProtection she promises to "protect" Yuki,]] also known as the "Yandere Trance", which has since reached MemeticMutation status.
* LoveMakesYouCrazy: Or was she already crazy to begin with?
* LoveMakesYouEvil: At times, the lengths at which she goes to show her admiration comes across as something that can only be thought of by a monster.
* MadLove: With Yukiteru. They are even [[Pantheon/{{Love}} the gods of the trope]].
* ManipulativeBitch: Throughout the series but is most impressive in episode 22 also including a BatmanGambit.
* MaskOfSanity: She pretends to be a normal, innocent girl, when she's actually an AxeCrazy sociopath.
* MeaningfulName: Her full name can be read as "my wife Yuno". Seeing as Yukiteru is named for Jupiter though, the kanji for Yuno's given name is really "Juno" read as Yuno (In central European languages the letter J is pronounced how Y is pronounced in English), so even more fittingly for Yukiteru, is the reading "my wife, Juno". Which is fitting, because Juno -- just like her Greek counterpart Hera -- gets mad at anyone who stole Jupiter's love, and would chase them down to the ends of the Earth. (Then there's the fact that Juno is a war goddess too.)
* MoodSwinger: She often shifts between lovesick, psychotic, and in rare occurances, cold and emotionless.
* MsFanservice: Throughout the whole series.
** Early on she and Yukiteru visit a pool where Yuno loses her swimsuit.
** Later on, Yuno [[spoiler: chains Yukiteru to a chair. This requires her to attend to all his, ahem, "duties".]] And on top of all that, she spends the entire time in nothing but a bra and panties.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: She believes that killing people is the best way to deal with problems.
* MurderTheHypotenuse: In her own words "Everyone who comes between me and Yukki can just die!" Probably comes with the whole {{Yandere}} thing.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Has a minor one [[spoiler:after being rebuked by her past self in the third world. Yuno actually starts shaking once she realizes how much she had changed when she lost all of her hope for the future, and seriously looks frightened at what she's become.]]
* NominalHero: Given how completely screwed up and outright evil the rest of the main cast are and the fact that she is one of the main characters, Yuno can be seen as heroic at times. However, all she cares about is protecting Yuki and although Yuki can maintain her somewhat stable, she is perfectly willing to do horrible things to those who get in their way.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Yuno will take any chance she gets to hug and kiss Yuki.
* NotGoodWithRejection: She doesn't take well Yuki rejecting her ''at all''.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Though there were earlier hints, FridgeLogic tells you she has been displaying this the entire story. [[spoiler: We find out she has played the survival game through before, so either she pretends not to know, or has [[LaserGuidedAmnesia repressed it]] completely.]]
* OdangoHair: [[spoiler:Her third world self]] at the beach in the Redial OVA.
* OfficialCouple: With Yuki.
* OffscreenTeleportation: She can appear out of nowhere. [[spoiler: Makes sense.]]
* OmnicidalManiac: If they aren't Yuki, she doesn't care what happens to them and she will kill anyone who gets in her way. [[spoiler:She is responsible for the destruction of the first world since she abandoned it after becoming its god.]]
* OnlyFriend: She considers herself the only friend Yukiteru needs.
* PantsFree: Yuno seems especially fond of this when there is an unconscious Yuki around.
* ParentalNeglect: Her father would work late hours and fail to notice her mother's escalating abuse.
* PoisonousFriend: She has killed, dismembered, schemed, plotted, manipulated and done a lot of shit to people with little to no regard just because of Yukiteru.
* PsychoSidekick: Yuki's batshit crazy sidekick.
* PutTheLaughterInSlaughter
* RapunzelHair: Down to her waist.
* [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech "The Reason We Suck" Speech]]: About the relationship between her and Yukiteru when she finally acknowledges its true nature. [[spoiler:While it did start off as that though, by the time she made this speech it had evolved into something more real.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Sports red eyes sometimes, showing her {{Yandere}} nature.
* RelationshipSabotage: One year prior to the series, she tried to do this to Yuki's relationship with Moe. However, Moe rejected Yuki's confession even without Yuno's interference.
* RoomFullOfCrazy: [[spoiler: An untouched room in Yuno's house that contains the corpses of her parents, and her second self who she murdered. Yuki finds it and ultimately changes the course of the game and the second world's timeline. Yuno eventually destroys the room and hides the evidence in a large pit behind her house.]]
* RoseHairedGirl: When she and Yuki are out of danger, she fits the sweet and romantic variety. But during her fights, she goes straight to the [[FieryRedhead strong and passionate]] variety.
* SatelliteLoveInterest: Played [[DeconstructedTrope remarkably straight with disturbing effect]]. Funnily enough, considering [[{{Yandere}} what she is]], it ends up being TropesAreNotBad. {{Justified|Trope}} in that Yuno [[spoiler:[[{{Deconstruction}} really has nothing in her life outside of Yukiteru]]]]. [[LivingEmotionalCrutch He is the only thing that keeps her relatively balanced most of the time.]]
* SchoolIdol: She's described as a model student. She gets excellent grades, everybody likes her, and all the boys are crazy about her. Except the one she's stalking, of course.
* [[spoiler:SelfMadeOrphan: Subverted in that they weren't technically her parents, and [[AccidentalMurder it wasn't what she desired. She even got to repent at the end]].]]
* SelfProclaimedLoveInterest: Ever since Yuki jokingly accepted her marriage proposal, Yuno believes they are engaged.
* SelfServingMemory: She usually represses and alters her memories in ways she feels more comfortable with to prevent herself from going completely insane.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Extremely Yukiteru-sexual.
* SlasherSmile: Played with. The constant MoeStare she sports on may as well be considered a SlasherSmile depending on context.
* SlipperySwimsuit: Loses her bikini top during the [[BeachEpisode Water-Park Episode]].
* TheSociopath: A very disturbing example. She loves Yuki to the extreme but EVERYONE other than Yuki is just pawns or getting in the way showing no remorse killing them.
* StalkerWithACrush: Yuno spends most of her time following Yuki. She also likes to break into his house and send him hundreds of emails over the course of an hour.
* StalkingIsLove: While Yuki ''is'' freaked out by Yuno's stalking, since she is his only true ally he must allow her to do it. Eventually, as he begins to go crazy, Yuki begins to accept her stalking more and more and at the end states that he fell in love with Yuno because "she was always by his side."
* StarCrossedLovers: Yuno and Yuki will never be together, because one of them needs to die to complete the Survival Game. [[spoiler:At the end, Yuno dies to ensure Yuki lives, but her memories are given to her third world self and she becomes god to be with Yuki.]]
* StepfordSmiler: Extremely Type C. She is usually brightly smiling, but this is just a mask for her craziness.
* StrawNihilist: To ''EVERYONE'' except Yukiteru.
* TakingYouWithMe: Tries this when fighting [[spoiler:Kurusu]] with the grenade Minene gave to Yuki, but it fails because the grenade turns out to be a flash grenade.
* TermsOfEndangerment: In the dub, she likes giving pet names to Yuki. Given her stalker nature, it comes off just as creepy as it is cute.
* {{Tsundere}}: Surprisingly, Yuno plays this trope with her unique style after [[spoiler:she decides to kill second world Yukki and tries to deny their love was real in the first place]].
--> '''Yuno:''' ''No, no no no! I've already abandoned [[spoiler: this]] Yukki!'' '''I don't like him or anything.''' Not only that, [[spoiler: I'm the one trying to kill him right now!]]
-->'''Yuno's phone screen:''' ''Yukki said that he'd even die for me. I'm so happy!''
* UhOhEyes: Makes these into an artform.
** GlowingEyesOfDoom: They sometimes appear like this.
* UncannyValleyGirl: She is seen as a SchoolIdol in her school, but she is actually a murderous AxCrazy {{Yandere}}.
* TheUnfettered: She will do anything for Yukiteru, ''[[MurderTheHypotenuse anything]]''.
* UngratefulBitch: She kills [[spoiler:Akise]] in spite of him sparing her life when he had the upper hand.
* UnholyMatrimony: With Yukiteru.
* UnskilledButStrong: Polar opposite of Yukki, in that her diary is almost completely useless except when paired with Yukki's, she is actually one of the strongest fighters. The only ones shown to best her in combat being [[spoiler: Sevenths and Akise.]]
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Yuno wasn't always such a psycho girl. When [[spoiler: Yukiteru and Minene go three years to the past]] it turns out that despite her abuse, she still was a hopeful and idealistic girl who [[spoiler: still believed she could be happy with her parents]].
* [[spoiler:VillainousBreakdown: Has one towards the end of the manga when Yuki refuses to kill her, prompting her to try to kill him, leap back in time again to restart the game and kill herself again. She fails, realising she cannot kill Yuki and seals him in an illusionary world to escape him. The final breakdown comes when she gets to see her third world self getting the love from her parents that she never got, and when Yuki escapes from the illusionary world.]]
* VillainProtagonist: She is Yukiteru's sidekick and main support, but she is also completely willing to kill anyone and through the series she does very cruel and nasty things to a lot of people.
** [[spoiler:Subverted in the later chapters when she becomes Yukiteru's enemy. She [[ZigZaggingTrope doubles back]] on that after she kills herself instead of him, though.]]
* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: VERY much so. She is willing to kill anyone who does as much as to get within 10 feet of Yuki.
* WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises: Made much more apparent in the anime during her crazier moments.
* WomanInBlack: Later in the series, she starts wearing a black lacy dress.
* [[spoiler:WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Yuno wants to keep the universe in an eternal time loop, forever replaying the Diary game, as this is the only way she believes she can stay with Yukiteru. She wants this so desperately because Yuki is probably one of the only kind people in her life, and her sole reason for living. Even if that means destroying entire universes/timelines to do it.]]
* {{Yandere}}: The [[{{Pantheon/Emotion}} Goddess]]. Bonus points for ''actually'' being named after the most yandere goddess, Juno.
** While this particular type of character isn't actually new, Yuno is without a doubt, if not the TropeMaker or [[TropeCodifier Codifier]], the example that is today the most well known and recognized - and serves, in fact, as the page image and the other insane tropes she embodies.
** A significant turning point in her CharacterDevelopment is when she realizes this and admits to Yuki that their relationship was one of convenience; she needed someone who would never (''could'' never) abandon her, and he needed someone to protect him. Their current relationship only works because she's ''extremely screwed up,'' and her acknowledgement of this makes Yuno a thorough {{Deconstruction}} of this character archetype. The archetype itself is never {{Reconstructed}} for [[UnfortunateImplications obvious reasons]], but her mental health improves and eventually she and Yuki get into a relationship, an ''actual'' relationship not based on fear. It's still a messed up one, and they're not exactly sane, but it's a start. Makes you wonder what would happen if they didn't live in a CrapsackWorld.
* YankTheDogsChain: Every time her relationship with Yuki looks like it's going somewhere, fate always barges in. [[spoiler:In the end, they finally defeat it]].
* ZettaiRyouiki: Later in the series, combined with a black lacy dress.

!!'''Takao Hiyama - The Third'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3rd_1181.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' Jin Domon (JP), Jason Douglas (EN)

A teacher at Yuki's school who's secretly a serial killer. His "Murder Diary" gives him detailed information on the location of his intended victim, making it a powerful weapon for ruthlessly pursuing his target. However, it offers little protection.
----
* AffablyEvil: He seems to be a fairly decent guy when he's teaching middle school class to his students. It's little wonder few suspected him of being a SerialKiller.
* ButtMonkey: [[BlackComedy Surprisingly often]]. He is the first diary owner to get killed, he kept killing himself several times over when [=MurMur=] first tried to give him his diary, he fell victim to one of Minene's amplified sound bombs in ''Mosaic'', appeared in a flashback chapter to be accidentally ([[CrossesTheLineTwice and comically]]) speared in the back by Yuno, and was given an electric shock in ''Paradox''. [[spoiler:In the penultimate chapter, he's pinned to the ground as he's apprehended by Twelfth, and he can be seen in the back of one of the final group shots, running from a few pursuers. In the anime, he's in jail.]] [=MurMur=] wasn't too surprised that he was the first to go.
* CoatHatMask: A practical version, as the costume he wears is not only bulletproof but somehow also ''bombproof''. [[spoiler: This comes in handy when Minene attacks him in ''Mosaic'', as she quickly learns that [[ThrowDownTheBomblet her usual battle tactics]] are useless against him.]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: We get to see [[ScreamingWoman one of his victims]] ''begging'' him not to kill her before cutting to a GoryDiscretionShot of her blood spattering the concrete. This lets us know what a twisted individual he is.
* EvilRedhead: His red hair is one of the few things his murder gear doesn't cover up.
* FriendlyEnemy: [[spoiler: with Twelfth, who's seen visiting him in prison in the Third World's epilogue.]]
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4B8wz9Qpb0 THIRD/Antares Cr302]]
* ImplacableMan: While he doesn't get a chance to show this off in his brief encounter with Yukiteru and Yuno, he proved himself to be this in ''Mosaic''/[[WholeEpisodeFlashback episode 10 in the anime]] [[spoiler: during his confrontation with Minene. He kept coming after her unrelentingly and wasn't even slowed down by the bombs exploding around him and by being shot at.]] Pity that [[AchillesHeel his diary is nowhere near as invulnerable as the man himself]].
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: The few times we see him without his mask.
* MalevolentMaskedMan: In his murder gear.
* MeaningfulName: The kanji in his last name, Hiyama, is read as "volcano". The Roman god in the Dii Consentes that he is associated with? Vulcan.
* SacrificialLamb: Killed off within the first chapters and first episode to demonstrate the rules and consequences of the survival game. Doubles as a RedShirt.
* SerialKiller: Though his experience when it came to killing didn't end up helping him much in the game.
* WeaponOfChoice: A machete.

!!'''Keigo Kurusu - The Fourth'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Keigo.png
->'''Voiced by:''' Masahiko Tanaka (JP), Creator/RobertMcCollum (EN)

A police officer who wishes to stop the other crazy people with diaries. His "Case Diary" gives him information on all future crimes in his district as though he had already investigated them. He introduces himself early on as an ally to Yuki and Yuno, forming the Future Alliance.
----
* {{Badass}}: As most players in the survival game tend to be.
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler: He sets up Yuki and Yuno (at least the latter, anyway) to commit a crime by having both taken to the police station, having Yuki brought in for interrogation, and playing a game of RussianRoulette with him, knowing full well [[BerserkButton just how]] [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend Yuno]] [[AxCrazy would react]] to Yuki being in danger.]]
* [[spoiler: BulletProofVest: Worn as part of his [[BatmanGambit plan to incriminate Yukiteru and Yuno]]. He fully expects [[MurderIstheBestSolution Yuno to shoot at him]]. He didn't expect her to shoot him ''in the head'', blowing off his ear.]]
* TheCommissionerGordon: As soon as he meets Yuki and Yuno he tries to work with them to go after and identify the other future diary users.[[spoiler: Though this is subverted later on.]]
* [[spoiler:DeathEqualsRedemption: Apologizes for betraying Yukiteru before he disappears.]]
* DefectiveDetective: We find out that he's so busy with work he hasn't been able to spend time with his wife and son. [[spoiler: Not only that, but his son is in the hospital, leading to his FaceHeelTurn (assuming he wasn't [[EvilAllAlong plotting it from the very beginning]]).]]
* [[spoiler:DirtyCop: Uses the power of the police force to arrest Yukiteru and Yuno, then uses the [[BatmanGambit power of his Future Diary to frame them for the murder of the Tenth]].]]
* [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide: He kills himself by destroying his Diary.]]
* {{Expy}}: Resembles [[{{Evangelion}} Kaji]] but acts more like [[{{Evangelion}} Gendo]], especially after his [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn]].
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn: To save his dying son.]]
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyJtcTZkMQY Running For Your Life]]
* [[spoiler:LogicalWeakness: Kurusu's diary is the Case Diary, so as long as he's chasing down his suspects, he'll continue to get info on their next moves. Rather than trying to take him down directly, Minene goes to Nishijima and informs him that Kurusu was responsible for murdering Tenth and framing Yukki and Yuno. Once Nishijima arrests him, Kurusu loses the authority to continue his investigations, and thus his diary stops recording future events.]]
* [[spoiler:ManipulativeBastard: Implied to have been influencing events and manipulating others for a decent amount of time after his introduction, starting with letting Minene go free from the Omekata Temple.]]
* MeaningfulName: Kurusu's is a bit harder to pin down than the others, but the kanji in his last name "kuru" means "to come" and as Mercury was the messenger to the others gods, he is probably closest to Mercury in the Dii Consentes.
* PassingTheTorch: [[spoiler: In the anime, Kurusu leaves a record of the survival game to Nishijima, including the defunct diaries of the dead owners.]]
* PermaStubble: Subtle but there, going with his normal "detective" appearance.
* RussianRoulette: plays a game of this with [[spoiler: Yukiteru]], in order to provoke [[spoiler: [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend Yuno]]]] to attack him.
* [[spoiler:ScarsAreForever: He gets his ear shot off by Yuno.]]
* SmokingIsCool: As most detectives in anime are prone to.
* SweetTooth: Downs his coffee with a lot of sugar cubes.
* [[spoiler:[[TakeCareOfTheKids Take Care of My Son]]: Before eliminating himself he asks Minene to look after his son.]]
* [[spoiler:WellIntentionedExtremist: He betrays Yukiteru and Yuno in order to save his son.]]
* [[spoiler:WhatCouldHaveBeen: In-universe example. According to Deus he was supposed to be among one of the final players of the game and not supposed to find out about his son's illness until much later. It turns out that his earlier demise was actually orchestrated by [=MurMur=].]]

!! '''Reisuke Houjou - The Fifth'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Reisuke.png
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AsamiSanada (JP), Lindsay Seidel (EN)

A 4-year-old boy who is left an orphan in the same incident that led to the Sixth's death. He is eager to prove himself to be a "super elite". His "Hyper Vision Diary" is a coloring book that displays pictures and summaries of three major events each day. It gives him plenty of time to plan his daily strategy, but it's not too helpful for predicting the immediate future.
----
* [[spoiler: AbusiveParents[=/=]ParentalNeglect: We see that Reisuke's parents weren't a happy family like we were made to believe. His parents were often fighting and he would be left in the corner of the room by himself. Now whether this contributed to his creepy tendencies is the series is up to interpretation, but one thing is for certain. He was seriously happy being taken care of by Yuki's mother.]]
** [[spoiler: Though they do have some moments of niceness as they were gracious enough to buy him his puppets.]]
** [[spoiler: Actually, in the third world where Reisuke's parents didn't join the cult, and therefore weren't fighting all the time, Reisuke's ends up as a normal child, so his parents are the cause of his creepy tendencies.]]
* BlushSticker: Has permanent ones on his cheeks.
* [[spoiler:CheerfulChild: In ''Paradox'', since his parents aren't killed.]]
** [[spoiler:In the third world for the same reasons and with the both of them being better parents.]]
* CreepyChild: A little boy with a very diabolical mind.
* CuteAndPsycho: A cute little 4-year-old boy who enjoys talking to his hand puppets, drawing pictures, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick and using his magical coloring book to commit murders.]]
* EnfanteTerrible: An adorable 4-year-old who uses his magic picture diary to adorably kill people.
* EvilOrphan: Since Yuno killed his parents.
* EvilRedhead: His hair is red and he is quite creepy.
* InfantImmortality: Played with, since as a player in the survival game to become god he has a chance of becoming a more literal example of this but if he doesn't win he would be a subversion.
* [[spoiler: GoOutWithASmile ''and'' GracefulLoser: After asking Yuno what will she do when she and Yukki face each other, Reisuke tells her to win The Game and dies smiling. His Diary reflects his last thoughts: "Hojou Reisuke is killed by Gasai Yuno. DEAD END. . . But I'm very happy!"]]
* HandPuppet: He carries a pair of hand puppets around with him, which he talks to as though they were real.
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ozxQqbk5F4 Perfect Trap]]
* KidSidekick: [[spoiler: Third World Reisuke to Akise in the Redial manga.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: Chiptunes.
* MeaningfulName: "Houjou" is written as "fertility". He corresponds with Ceres in the Dii Consentes.
* NiceHat
* NightmareFuelColoringBook: His Future Diary is a coloring book that shows him how to commit murder.
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler:He seriously enjoyed his time at Yuki's place (despite how twisted he viewed it as) and refused to put Yuki's mom in danger of his hide and seek game.]]
* {{Revenge}}:
** Well, Yuno inadvertently did [[YouKilledMyFather kill his parents]].
** Actually, subverted. He ''considers'' that fact, but then dismisses it with a who cares about that.
** Double subverted in ''Mosaic'' where he reveals that he really does love his parents despite what happens.
* SlasherSmile: A master of this. Particularly in the anime's second opening.
* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: Comes with being an unstable 4 year old who is in a game that revolves around killing people.
* WeakButSkilled: His diary only shows three entries for the day during the morning, noon, and night. Despite that, it has a certain advantage of giving Reisuke all three entries at the same time, which allows him ample time to carefully plot his next move, as well as some pictures drawn by him, giving him some source material other than writing.
* {{Yandere}}: An odd-version of this archetype. Despite his attempts of trying to kill Yuno, he quickly grows fond of her during his stay at Yuki's home. By the time he dies, his diary tells us that he's happy that Yuno killed him.

->'''Voiced by:''' EriSendai (JP), Kate Bristol (EN)

The priestess for the Omekata cult, who supposedly possesses clairvoyant powers. She has been imprisoned in the cult's temple her entire life because of her poor eyesight. Her parents were the founders of the cult, and after their deaths [[spoiler:(or better said, their murders)]] she became its {{leader}} of sorts. Her "Clairvoyant Diary" is a scroll that records what every worshipper in the cult sees, giving her much greater range than most other Diary Holders. While it provides a large amount of information, the scroll is also cumbersome and slow to use, making it difficult for her to react immediately to changes.
----
* AdaptationDyeJob: Her red eyes in the manga changed to purple in the anime.
* [[spoiler:AnArmAndALeg: Yuno chops off her left hand, therefore she can't handle the heavy "Clairvoyant Diary" and is open for Yukki's definitive attack with his darts.]]
* AttemptedRape: [[spoiler:Tsubaki orders the cult members to strip and gang-rape the captive Yuno, in an attempt to lure the escaped Yukiteru out. He pulls a BigDamnHeroes and stops her.]]
* [[spoiler:BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil]]
* BerserkerTears: [[spoiler:Tsubaki cries these when her diary is destroyed in the manga right after she sees her old handball.]]
* [[spoiler:BitchInSheepsClothing: She appears a YamatoNadeshiko at first, but she is actually a ManipulativeBitch.]]
* BlindSeer: [[spoiler:It's revealed to be a lie.]]
* BrokenBird: [[spoiler: Losing her parents and being repeatedly gang raped has left her as an angry and sour girl who wants to destroy the world.]]
* ChekhovsGun: [[spoiler:Yukiteru finds her lost handball and throws it in the air, foiling the powers of her diary and letting him destroy it, killing Tsubaki.]]
* {{Clairvoyance}}: [[spoiler:Her clairvoyant powers are actually a lie made up by her parents.]]
* [[spoiler:CryForTheDevil: After learning her backstory.]]
* [[spoiler:CuteAndPsycho: She seems at first to be a YamatoNadeshiko, but then we see that her backstory of orphanhood and sexual slavery drove her completely ''insane''.]]
* [[spoiler:DecoyDamsel: She plays the part ''[[BitchInSheepsClothing really]]'' well.]]
* DespairEventHorizon: Crossed in her BackStory, after [[spoiler: her TragicKeepsake disappears, thus she has no way to keep her sanity in between all of the abuse the Omekatas subject her to]].
* [[spoiler:EvilOrphan: After her parents were killed and she went mad from being used as a SexSlave for the Omekata Cult.]]
* FanDisservice: [[spoiler:How do we find out about her SexSlave deal? Through a flashback that starts with a barely pubescent Tsubaki lying naked on the floor, shivering and terrified, right before she's gang-raped by the men of the Omekata cult.]]
* GlassCannon: The "Clairvoyant Diary". She can use it to record what her cult members see and thus has a huge range, but it's very slow and hard to use. It also presents the largest target, [[spoiler:which is problematic when a single hit from one of Yukki's darts is enough to count it as destroyed.]]
* GoLookAtTheDistraction: [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Yuki]] takes advantage of the fact [[spoiler:her diary shows what her followers are looking at by throwing a ball then throwing a dart to destroy her diary when they're all looking the other way]].
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: She pulls out a pipe and smokes on it [[spoiler: when Yuno falls victim to a DistressBall right after killing the Twelfth and this allows her to her trap them, Kurusu and Minene inside the Omekata temple]].
* HairDecorations: Her red ribbon.
* HimeCut: Showing her status as a {{miko}} and YamatoNadeshiko looks.
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c461iKFAkaE Cries Of Avici (6)]]
* [[spoiler:ManipulativeBitch: Tries to manipulate Yukki, Yuno, Kurusu, Minene, and Hirasaka for her own benefit.]]
* [[spoiler:MaskOfSanity: It doesn't take too long for it to slip though.]]
* MeaningfulName: A nod to the Roman goddess Proserpina, the goddess of springtime. She has the kanji (春) for springtime in her name, and further connecting to Proserpina by both being beautiful women who spend much of their time hidden from the world. (Though in Proserpina's case, there's quite the AlternativeCharacterInterpretation on whether she wants to be there or not... in Tsubaki's case [[spoiler: she DOESN'T.]])
* {{Miko}}: [[spoiler:Horrendously subverted in the main storyline, but [[TheMessiah played straight]] in ''Paradox'' and the AlternateTimeline.]]
* [[spoiler:ObfuscatingStupidity: This should have been really obvious.]]
* [[spoiler: OmnicidalManiac: Why she wants to become god.]]
* OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness: The leader.
* PeekABangs: Her right eye is almost always covered by her hair.
* PurpleEyes: Fitting her role as a "{{Seer}}".
* [[spoiler:RapeAsBackstory: After her parents (and the Omekata founders) were killed, Tsubaki was imprisoned and used as a SexSlave by the cult while making her "pose" as the leaderess.]]
* [[spoiler:RapeLeadsToInsanity: Being Omekata cult's SexSlave caused her to lose her mind.]]
* RapunzelHair: Long black hair reaching her hips. Her hair is all the way down to her feet [[http://www.future-diary.tv/chara/6th.html in the anime]].
* [[spoiler:ReligionOfEvil: The Omekata cult that she belongs to or rather, is imprisoned by. The AlternateTimeline shows them as a more benevolent group, though. It helps that the Kasuganos were still alive to lead it well.]]
** [[spoiler:Even more tragic is the fact that in ''Paradox'' it's revealed that her parents were actually about to disband the cult [[GiveHimANormalLife in order to let Tsubaki lead a normal life.]] However, the second-in-command Funatsu wasn't having any of that so he offed Tsubaki's parents before they could do so, trapping her in the cult as a sex slave.]]
** [[spoiler: Redial has the cult be reformed into a good religion and in the Redial manga it becomes the [[JusticeWillPrevail Cult of Justice]] lead by her and Yomotsu.]]
* [[spoiler:SexSlave: The Omekata cult keeps her prisioner as their sex toy.]]
* [[spoiler:StalkerWithACrush: The third world's Tsubaki is this to Kousaka in the Redial OVA. She has her cult go out and lure him to her, and then practically throws herself at him. He was ''all'' for it.]]
* [[spoiler: TakeThatKiss: Pulls one on Yukiteru right after trapping him, Yuno and others. Yuno reacts as well as expected.]]
* TearsOfRemorse: In the anime [[spoiler:right before her death]].
* TragicKeepsake: A handball given to her by her deceased mother. [[spoiler:It gets lost later, and Tsubaki ''definitely'' loses it soon afterwards.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Surprisingly, shows shades of this towards Akise in ''Paradox''.
* [[spoiler:UsedToBeASweetKid: As shown by her backstory before her parents were killed.]]
* [[spoiler: WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: She wants to become god so she can destroy the world that has made her suffer so much.]]

->'''Voiced by:''' TomokazuSeki (Marco - JP), Creator/NatsukoKuwatani (Ai - JP), Brad Hawkins (Marco - EN), JamieMarchi (Ai - EN)

A pair of orphans in love with each other. Their "Exchange Diary" is actually two cell phones that report each other's immediate future. The couple displays excellent teamwork as they use their diaries to cover each other's weaknesses.
----------------
[[AC:Both]]
* AdaptationExpansion: The anime expands more on their time in high school together rather than just the two flashback scenes in the manga in the tower where Marco and Ai first meet and where they decide to get married. [[spoiler:The anime added in a rather dark story in which Ai is set up by her female classmates to be gang raped by a group of boys, with Marco finding her and her captors afterward. He then proceeds to beat down the group and even manages to kill one of her rapists. They later go the tower where Marco is almost DrivenToSuicide over not being able to protect Ai, only to be stopped by Ai herself, who begs him not to leave her alone. It helps to add to his reason for not leaving Ai behind in the tower when it started to collapse.]]
* [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl Always Save Your Love Interest]]
* [[AntiVillain Anti-Villains]]
* [[spoiler:BabiesEverAfter: In the third world, where Ai is pregnant.]]
* BattleCouple: Arguably a truer one than Yuki and Yuno's.
* BondingOverMissingParents: The orphan Marco first met Ai the day her parents abandoned her and they've been close ever since.
* BondVillainStupidity: [[spoiler:They were the only diary owners who managed to both beat up Yukiteru and Yuno and take away their diaries during their first confrontation. Having the two at their mercy, they made them bring Yukiteru's father (secretly working for Eleventh) to them. After they got their hands on Yukiteru's dad, Marco stated that they didn't have any reason to keep Yukiteru and Yuno alive anymore. Instead of destroying their diaries that very moment... Marco and Ai didn't, and even challenged Yukiteru and Yuno to a rematch that resulted in the two recovering their diaries. Marco even mentioned that he could have simply destroyed the diaries, but that would be too easy and boring. To her credit, after that happened Ai did admit that she and Marco should have simply destroyed the diaries.]]
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: They first met when they were children after Ai was abandoned by her parents and grew up together in Eighth's orphanage.
* CoolShades: Both are seen wearing matching sunglasses on occasion.
* DeclarationOfProtection: They have sworn to protect each other.
* {{Foil}}[=/=]ShadowArchetype: Towards Yukiteru and Yuno, since Marco and Ai are a couple who love each other in a much more genuine and healthy way.
* GodCouple: Their goal in the game.
* [[spoiler:{{Graceful Loser}}s: When it becomes obvious that they are going to die, they don't take Yukiteru and Yuno down with them and even give them their last parachute, making it possible for the two to escape from Sakurami Tower. Even though they killed each other's lover, they held no grudge against them for it and recognized that it was simply part of the game.]]
* HappilyMarried: They get married at the Sakurami Tower just before their second encounter with Yuki and Yuno.
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJAlHTKwmxw 7th Heaven]]
* {{Love Freak}}s: They're always talking about ThePowerOfLove.
* MeaningfulName: For ''both'' of them. Marco's first name comes from "Mars", the Roman god of war, and his last name's kanji is read as "battlefield", sealing the comparison. Ai's name indirectly references Venus, as her first name means "love" while her last name contains the kanji for "beauty" and "god", all strongly pointing to Venus as a reference. If that wasn't enough, Mars and Venus were also well known in the myths for their love affair.
** Their Child Diaries take the comparisons one step further, with Marco's being a diary that predicts his opponent's next fighting move, so he can counter it, and Ai's making predictions about all the men that she wants to flirt with in the future.
* MistakenForCheating: A RunningGag with this pair.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Couple]]: Out of all the diary owners, Marco and Ai seem the sanest, although this is shared with Kamado and Yuki before his BadAss upgrade.
* ThePowerOfLove: They insist that this is why they win their fights.
* [[spoiler:TogetherInDeath: They die together during the collapse of the Sakurami Tower.]]
* VillainousValour: They prove themselves to be very devoted to one another, [[{{Foil}} even more so than Yuki and Yuno]].
* WouldNotShootACivilian: When Yuki's friends are caught in the crossfire, they save their lives and treat their wounds.
[[AC:Marco]]
* BerserkButton: [[NonActionGuy Non-Action Guys]]
* BoisterousBruiser: He's HotBlooded, loud and always ready for a fight.
* BruiserWithASoftCenter
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Brown hair and eyes.
* DontYouDarePityMe: [[spoiler:Tells Yukiteru not to look at him and Ai with pity after being defeated.]]
* EightiesHair: Marco sports a long, curled perm.
* EmotionalBruiser
* HotBlooded: Very loud and passionate man.
* [[spoiler:ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Marco ended up impaled with a metal pipe during Sevenths' second battle with Yukiteru and Yuno. Though it probably wasn't this but rather the collapse of the Sakurami Tower that killed him.]]
* [[spoiler:InterruptedSuicide: In his backstory in the anime.]]
* LightningBruiser: When sufficiently angered, Marco has proven himself to be a virtually unstoppable force in combat. In his final appearance in the Second World, he is revealed to possess strength that borders on monstrous levels when he lifts several tons of rubble in order to reach a dying Ai.
* ManInWhite: His preferred outfit.
* ManlyTears: In his backstory in the anime and [[spoiler:when he and Ai die]].
* MrFanservice: Shows his well tone chest in his introduction, providing this effect.
* RandomSmokingScene: From time to time.
* SmokingIsCool
* WhatTheHellHero: Calls Yukiteru out about how he lets Yuno do all the fighting while he just stays hidden behind her.
* YouAreWorthHell: [[spoiler:Marco decides to stay with Ai in the collapsing tower instead of escaping alone.]]

[[AC:Ai]]
* ActionGirl
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:Ai appeared first, as one of Tsubaki's followers.]]
* DesignatedGirlFight: Against Yuno, though Marco [[BattleCouple joins in]] soon after.
* KnifeNut: Ai prefers throwing knives.
* MsFanservice: She fully exposes her midriff with a very loose jacket.
* PeekABangs: In her first appearance [[spoiler: as a spy infiltrating Sixth's hideout]], she soon changes her looks on her proper introduction.
* PurpleEyes
* [[spoiler:RapeAsBackstory: In the anime.]]
* SympathyForTheDevil: [[spoiler:Shows great concern for the Sixth while undercover.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Ai's hair is blue.

!!'''Kamado Ueshita - The Eighth'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ueshita_2195.png
->'''Voiced by:''' HiromiKonno (JP), Creator/MonicaRial (EN)

A very...uniquely shaped woman who runs an orphanage. Her "Propagation Diary" is actually a server that can be accessed by the people she allows, giving each person their own "Child Diary" that can predict the future in various ways. She hasn't shown much interest in winning the game, but the children at her orphanage willingly fight to protect her by eliminating the other Diary Holders.
----
* AntiVillain: She's actually a lot nicer and more sympathetic than the protagonists let alone the other antagonists. The only reason she's a "villain" is because she's a diary holder and the [[EvilVersusEvil morality of the series]], and even then she's only fighting because her orphanage's kids don't want to see her die.
* ApronMatron: Her outfit.
* BlushSticker: Default look.
* CatSmile: Her default expression.
* HappilyMarried: To [[spoiler: John Balks]] in the Redial manga.
* HarmlessVillain: She doesn't want to win the game, and relatively speaking she hasn't shown herself to be nearly as crazy or murderous as the other Diary Holders.
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGOzbikR_o8 LOST CHILDREN]]
* MeaningfulName: Kamado can mean "hearth", which is one of the domains that Vesta was goddess over. "Ueshita" sounds like "Vesta" (Ueshita/Weshita/Wesuta). Just as well, Ueshita runs an OrphanageOfLove and gives a place for orphans to stay, and Vesta was also the goddess of family and the home.
* NeutralFemale: Battle and personality wise, she prefers to have others fight for her, hence the Apprentice Diaries and only wants not to be bothered as she takes care of her kids.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: ...to say the least.
* [[spoiler:ObiWanMoment: Before dying, she asks Yuki to create a new world where children can live without worries.]]
* OnlySaneWoman: Comes across as this by the time Yuki snaps.
* OrphanageOfLove: Presumably she runs one, given how the children are willing to die for her sake.
* ShipTease: Has a bit of it with John Balks. [[spoiler:In the last episode, they are unambiguously shown to be a couple in the third world.]]
* SuperEmpowering: She's never shown using her own diary to predict the future, but she can give out Child Diaries.
* SuperpowerLottery: As Eleventh figures out, since she can provide a near infinite amount of diaries to possible wielders so she'll never have to fight, and those diaries can be easily replaced without the wielder dying like a natural Diary user. [[spoiler:He even plans to gain omnipotence [[note]]since his Diary can read all the other Diary users' predictions[[/note]] combined with this power, providing him with near infinite army. Eighth on the other hand, does not show interest in this potential.]]
* [[spoiler:TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth]]: [[spoiler:Was hands down, the nicest Diary Holder. When killed, she asks Yuki to create a good world, not even holding a grudge against him.]]
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: No one in-verse except [=MurMur=] seem to be bothered at her appearance.
* WhatDoesSheSeeInHim: Her orphans' reactions to her going out with [[spoiler:the Mayor in the third world]].

!!'''Minene Uryu - The Ninth'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Uryu_9526.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' MaiAizawa (JP), Creator/EmilyNeves (EN)

A terrorist bomber raging against the world. Her "Escape Diary" explores each possible option and recommends the best course of action to escape danger, making it very helpful for avoiding death. It will still display a DEAD END when things are stacked too heavily against her, though.
----
* ActionBomb: Her "heart bomb" will explode as soon as her heart stops.
* ActionFashionista: Played with, her initial outfit is very gothic lolita gimmicky, but post HeelFaceTurn she wears far more darker outfits that make her look far more impressive. She even makes a nurse outfit look awesome.
* AdaptationExpansion: The anime imports parts of her ''Mosiac'' side-story.
* AntiHero: Compared to Yuki's ActualPacifist way of things, she's willing to do anything to get victory often in [[IncrediblyLamePun explosive ways]].
** {{Nominal Hero}}ine: Originally.
** {{Unscrupulous Hero}}ine: After her HeelFaceTurn.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: Her name refers to both the goddess of knowledge and the god of the sea in the Roman mythos.
* [[spoiler:BabiesEverAfter: With third world Masumi. As a bonus, her babies (most likely twins) have super powers due to her receiving some of Deus' powers.]]
* {{Badass}}: The series' most indisputable example. She has the honor of being the only diary holder besides Yukiteru and Yuno, who confronted the most diary users in battle and comes out alive.
** BadassAdorable: She has her moments. Defeating Hiyama in a cosplay dress counts.
** BadassAndChildDuo: Strikes this with Yukiteru [[spoiler:especially during the FinalBattle]].
** BadassBiker[=/=]BikerBabe: In her first appearance, she drives a motorcycle to escape.
** BadassBoast: Known to give these.
** BadassInDistress: When briefly captured by the Twelfth.
** BadassLongRobe: She wears a black robe after [[spoiler:returning with Deus' powers]].
** [[spoiler:BadassTransplant: The white arm that Deus' power gave her.]]
** HandicappedBadass: She loses her left eye [[spoiler: and later her right hand]] yet still remains {{Badass}} to the end.
** HeartbrokenBadass: After [[spoiler:Nishijima dies protecting her]].
** [[spoiler:RetiredBadass: In the series finale.]]
** TookALevelInBadass: When you think Minene is already badass enough, wait to see her [[spoiler:return with half of God's powers]].
* BareYourMidriff: In her usual outfit.
* TheBaroness: Post HeelFaceTurn.
* [[spoiler: BetterToDieThanBeKilled: She decides to break her own diary instead of letting her wounds kill her. [[SubvertedTrope But Deus saves her and she comes back.]]]]
* BigOlEyebrows: More noticeable in the anime; they're particularly thick.
* BigSisterMentor: To Yukiteru.
* BloodKnight: Downplayed. While she initially was all for violence, at the end of the story she [[spoiler: retires with Nishijima, having given up the terrorist life.]]
* BoobsOfSteel: When she's undressed post HeelFaceTurn, she's far more well-endowed than initially implied.
* BrokenBird: She's cynical and jaded as a result of her DarkAndTroubledPast and is usually dealing with emotional traumas.
* ByronicHero: Morally neutral? Check. Largely concerned with personal interests? Check. Disrespect of common authority? Check. Defined by conflict, inner and outer? Definitely. Guilty of crimes? Definitely. Attractive? Oh yeah. An exile? Definitely. Intelligent? Check. Cynical and self-destructive? Definitely.
* [[spoiler:ChangedMyMindKid: When Yukiteru and Yuno are stuck trying to get into a vault that's guarding Eleventh, deciding to avenge Nishijima instead. She changes her mind again to perform a HeroicSacrifice.]]
* CleavageWindow: In her usual outfit.
* CoolBigSis: [[CharacterDevelopment Becomes]] [[LikeBrotherAndSister like one]] [[IntergenerationalFriendship to Yukiteru]] [[FireForgedFriends eventually]].
* CoolBike: Owns at least two.
* {{Cosplay}}: She insists it's "for the atmosphere".
* CrazySurvivalist: Proven in her very first appearance by pulling a motorcycle out of {{hammerspace}} to make her escape. And enhanced by her Escape Diary, of course, which tells her just what crazy preparations to make.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Purple hair and eyes.
* CynicismCatalyst: Losing her parents in a religious struggle in the middle east and having to fend for herself in a place where she didn't even know the language made Minene the cynical terrorist she is today.
* DarkActionGirl: She's ruthless, sociopathic and usually dresses in dark clothes. However, she ends up [[HeelFaceTurn coming around, for the most part.]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Minene lost her parents when she was eight during a conflict caused by religious extremists and was forced to live a brutal life as a streetrat. As a result, Minene developed a hatred towards God and religion as a whole.
* DarkIsEvil: Appearance-wise, although her name's [[MeaningfulName meanings]] have connotations with [[LightIsNotGood light]].
* DatingCatwoman: Has this with Nishijima, [[spoiler: they eventually get married in the third world.]]
* DeadManSwitch: Uses one of these when she holds up a school, derailing an attempt to snipe her because it's attached to a bomb.
* DeadpanSnarker: Especially post HeelFaceTurn.
* DeadPersonImpersonation: She killed a rookie police officer and took her place so she could get close to her target.
* DeceasedParentsAreTheBest: She lost her parents in a religious struggle. We never really see Minene's fond memories of them, but it appears they were GoodParents who loved her and she does remember them fondly one moment before [[spoiler:trying to sacrifice herself]].
* DefrostingIceQueen: She slowly becomes much more heroic as the game goes on.
* {{Determinator}}: One of the longest lasting players in the survival game because she refuses to lie down and die. [[spoiler:Deus picked her to ensure the game ran its course smoothly ''for a reason''.]]
* DisabledLoveInterest: She develops a relationship with Nishijima in spite of losing her left eye [[spoiler:and later her right hand]].
* DivineIntervention: Experienced this in the first chapter of ''Mosaic'' [[spoiler:and later on in the main story]].
* ElegantGothicLolita: She prefers this style of dress at first, she drops it for a more subtle wear.
* EscapeArtist: She has the "Escape Diary", after all.
* [[spoiler:EvilParentsWantGoodKids: For all of Minene's terrorism, she seems to make a decent stay-at-home mom.]]
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: Has shoulder-length hair in the ''Redial'' OVA.
* {{Expy}}: A combination of Misato from ''{{Evangelion}}'', Revy from ''BlackLagoon'', Canaan from the [[{{Canaan}} series of the same name]], and Riddick from ''Film/TheChroniclesOfRiddick'', combining the looks and in partnership with Yukiteru, who is Shinji's and Rock's expy, from the former two, the personality and behavior from Revy, the region of origin from Canaan, and the soft spot for children and weapons proficiency from Riddick.
* EyepatchOfPower: Which came after being subjected to EyeScream [[spoiler: by the Twelfth]].
* FireForgedFriends: With Yukiteru, [[spoiler:later referring to him by his first name]].
* [[spoiler:{{Flight}}: One of the powers that Deus bequeathed her with.]]
* FriendToAllChildren: With the exception of her school bombing early in the story (which she only targeted in the first place to lure out Fourth, since she only ever targets religious places/figures), she subtly displays traits of this. First, after their rough initial meeting, she becomes friendlier towards Yukiteru and takes on more of a mentor role towards him in later story arcs. She also acts friendly with and shows good will towards Fifth, going to great lengths to return his hand puppets when he was being stubborn. And while she is hiding undercover as a nurse, she mentions to Akise that she doesn't mind talking to and looking after the children in the hospital. She later also tries to scare Yukiteru's classmates out of helping her stop Eleventh for fear of their safety (even though they ended up helping her anyways). [[spoiler:Probably hinting that she wouldn't make a bad mother in the future.]]
** More like [[ZigZaggedTrope zig-zagged]]. She has no excuses for her bombing of the school other than to fulfill her selfish objectives. She also kills the children without compunctions and doesn't even show a hint of regret later on.
* GadgeteerGenius: Her bombs are all hand made.
* GodivaHair: When captured by the Twelfth, who strips and chains her to a wall [[spoiler: after tearing out her left eye]].
* [[spoiler:GoldAndWhiteAreDivine: In addition to the white arm that Deus' power gave her, the anime also gives her a golden eyepatch.]]
* GoodIsNotNice: Even after her HeelFaceTurn, she's still a [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold jerk, but she looks out for Yuki throughout the game]].
* GracefulLoser: She never seems to be angry at Yuki for stabbing out her eye [[spoiler: until he uses Nishijima as bait, which ends up killing him. Even after Yuki shoots her, she decides to help him out by trying to bomb the vault door. When she's saved by Deus, she once again comes to his assistance.]]
* GuileHeroine: Relies on her strategic planning and trickery, and constantly has a means of escape in case her plan falls through.
* TheGunslinger: While she prefers the grenade, she's no slouch with a gun.
* [[spoiler:HappilyMarried: To third world Nishijima in the DistantFinale. Much to the chagrin of her husband, he still has to catch and arrest her third world self, who is still a terrorist.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: She is introduced [[WouldHurtAChild blowing up half of a school full of innocent children]] just so that she can kill Yuki. After a lot of CharacterDevelopment, she becomes a more heroic character and Yuki's ally and mentor of-sorts.
* HiddenDepths: She has self-relience issues and has an honorable side to her than her initial portrayal suggests.
* HiddenHeartOfGold: Towards Yuki.
* HollywoodAtheist: Before the survival game started. In the first chapter of ''Mosaic'' she states that there is no God and that praying to him and relying on his help in life is stupid. It's also strongly implied that she became atheist because she lost her parents as a child; as she reveals her atheism a flashback is shown to her crying next to the bodies of her parents. At the end of that chapter she meets the God of her universe and becomes NayTheist instead.
* HospitalHottie: When she disguised herself as a nurse.
* [[spoiler:[[HotGod Hot Demigoddess]]: After being given half of Deus's powers.]]
* [[spoiler:{{Housewife}}: She becomes a stay-at-home mom after marrying third world Nishijima.]]
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sqDfzba1QU Reject]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSsR_TDQ4OQ Brilliant Imitation]].
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Yukiteru.
* IWasJustPassingThrough: Passes off several of her kind actions as this, like rescuing Yukiteru and Yuno from Reisuke's gas trap [[spoiler:and informing Kurusu of his son's condition when she told Yukiteru that she was just going to wander off and do her own thing in the third world.]]
* [[spoiler:KarmaHoudini: Her body-count probably numbers in hundreds if not thousands, seeing as before the main story started she attacked not only clergymen, but also religious facilities; Twelfth does mention in ''Mosaic'' that she killed a lot of believers in her attacks. She also murdered an innocent rookie detective to steal her identity in ''Mosaic'', and there's also her school bombing early in the main story. As the second world where she did all of this ultimately gets destroyed, she ends up getting away with this, escaping from the second world and presumably living HappilyEverAfter with Nishijima in the third world. And on top of that, according to ''Redial'', she got to ''keep her God powers'', since it shows her flying in the sky with her kids.]]
* KillTheGod: Her eventual goal once she wins the game. [[spoiler:Though she wouldn't have to work hard on that goal since Deus is dying anyways. What's more, it's lightly hinted that when Deus transferred half of his remaining power to Minene, it actually sped up his coming death, leading to the world to start collapsing earlier than was expected. [[FromACertainPointOfView She ended up achieving her goal, in a way.]]]]
* LickedByTheDog: She seems to be liked by a group of wild squirrels which follow her around.
* LoveRedeems: Nishijima was major motivation for her HeelFaceTurn. At the end, [[spoiler:she gives up terrorism to marry third world Nishijima]].
* [[spoiler:LoveTranscendsSpacetime: Nishijima's love for her carries over to the third world where, he goes to the final battle he finds, recognizes her and [[HaveWeMet wonders if they met]]. [[BabiesEverAfter Two years later they get married and have kids together]].]]
* MadBomber: She bombs churches and assassinates religious figures.
* MasterOfDisguise: She is able to fool people even if she's just wearing nurse outfit.
* MeaningfulName: As it turns out, Minene is named for ''two'' gods, who are usually paired together in the Dii Consentes.
** Her first name, Minene, is an obvious corruption of Minerva the goddess of battle strategy.
** Her last name also contains the kanji for rain 雨 (''ame''), which corresponds to Neptune who is the god patron of horses for some reason, though in her case [[MyHorseIsAMotorbike her horses are motorbikes]].
* MegaTwintails:
** In her initial appearances. She leaves her hair down afterwards though.
** Their volume is somewhat HandWaved by ''Mosaic'' explaining that [=MurMur=] was the one altering her hair.
* MsFanservice: Especially post HeelFaceTurn.
* NayTheist: She's fighting to gain the powers of a god, yet refuses to acknowledge the very god who gave her the Diary.
* [[spoiler:NeverFoundTheBody: [[RedHerring We were led to believe]] that her body was completely obliterated by her heart bomb in the bank vault. It was later revealed that Deus had secretly pulled her out to safety just before the bomb even exploded, and in addition the anime shows that the bomb explosion was caused by a PortalCut when her bomb was suddenly disconnected from her after she was transported to safety.]]
* NobleDemon: She is a terrorist and not above blowing up a middle school full of kids, but she has her own honorable side.
* NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow: ''Damn'', where to begin? [[spoiler: Minene already had her eye pierced in her introduction, but as soon as the story starts focusing on her again, she takes some punishment. She narrowly survives a claymore that ends up blowing off her hand and causes her to lose a lot of blood, then after chasing Yukiteru down she manages to corner him only hesitate and give him the opportunity to shoot her in the abdomen, and she bleeds out quite a lot on the floor. Then after Yukiteru and Yuno leave her for dead to try to deal with Eleventh, Minene managed to get back up and walks up behind them to offer to sacrifice herself so they can get inside the safe. It takes her to break her own diary before she actually dies. And Deus even saves her from that, too. Oh yeah, and the new arm that she gets via his powers? Ripped off by [=MurMur=]. And even after that she still survives.]]
* NoSocialSkills: She doesn't know what exactly marriage is, at least.
* NotSoDifferent: Surprisingly, she says this to Yukiteru. When she saw him running through her minefield, choking on poisonous gas, or even the look on his face [[spoiler:when he lost his parents]], she was reminded of her own weakness in her childhood, and admits that she had a soft spot for him.
** She also gets a bit of this with the Fifth in ''Mosaic'' when she asks if he's going to take revenge for his parents. It's probably why she was so intent on [[EscalatingChase returning his dolls]].
* [[spoiler:ObiWanMoment: And a TearJerker to boot.]]
* OrphansOrdeal: She appears to be haunted by the memory of crying over her dead parents.
* PoisonousCaptive: Despite being captured by the Twelfth, she misses no chances mocking him when his plans go awry.
* PurpleEyes
* RapunzelHair: Down to her waist.
* [[spoiler:RedemptionEarnsLife: Minene gets to live.]]
* [[spoiler:RetiredOutlaw: In the finale, she has given up terrorism to live with third world Nishijima, but her other terrorist-bomber self is still running around there.]]
* SatisfiedStreetRat: She lost her parents in a religious struggle in the middle east and had to fend for herself in a place where she didn't even know the language, becoming a hardened {{Badass}} who would eventually target religious buildings and figures in her terrorist bombings.
* [[spoiler:SemiDivine: After being given half of Deus' powers.]]
* [[spoiler:SenselessSacrifice: Averted. Just as Ninth had broken her diary, Deus saved her from her vault explosion.]]
* ShamefulStrip: After being captured by the Twelfth, he strips her down to her panties and chains her to a wall.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: [[NiceGuy Nishijima]].
--> '''Minene:''' Nishijima [[spoiler:was only one man, but he]] told me he'd make me happy.
* SlasherSmile: Her default expression, though she keeps a much cooler head than most examples.
* SociopathicHero: In a very different way from [[VillainProtagonist Yuno]] in that she can be merciless, but not nearly be as monstrously manipulative as the latter.
* SourSupporter: [[spoiler:In the final battle, she isn't very supportive about Yukiteru wanting to save Yuno and everyone in the third world, but helps him anyway.]]
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:Becomes the most prominent one near the end of the story, through Deus. Her continued survival throughout the game causes Deus to deem her reliable enough to leave some of his power inside her. After she dies for [[NotQuiteDead the first time]], she manages to pull a BigDamnHeroes moment to save Yukiteru from the collapsing second world, and uses Deus' powers to follow Yuno back in time. She then leaves Yukiteru to make a phone call to Kurusu, telling him about his son's future condition and advising him to seek help for it. Her actions caused a domino effect that allowed all of the other Diary Holders (minus Third) to prevent many of their personal tragedies and achieve a happy ending.]]
* TheStrategist: Especially during the Fourth fight.
* StrawNihilist: She outright doesn't believe in God at least till Deus showed up, and she is jaded by her experiences.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Occasionally refers to herself as "Minene-sama" [[BadassBoast because she believes she is just that great]]. She doesn't do it as often as the story progresses, but whenever she gets serious against her opponents it tends to show up.
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: Completely in sync with her reputation as terrorist.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: Minene is a {{Badass}} terrorist who says she doesn't waste her time in girly stuff, but she likes ElegantGothicLolita dresses.
* [[spoiler:TouchedByVorlons: Received half of Deus's remaining power when he noticed [=MurMur=] was unfairly influencing the game to go in Yuno's favor. Deus was hoping that she would use his power to help set the game back on track, and while she did try to honor his request, Yukiteru's decision to ScrewDestiny and help the third world's Yuno made her change course.]]
* {{Tritagonist}}: The third most prominent protagonist after Yuki and Yuno, [[MeaningfulName though it might be deliberate]].
* {{Tsundere}}: According to [=MurMur=] to Nishijima, [[spoiler: [[HappilyMarried she's right]].]]
* TheUnfettered: In a different way than Yuno, in that she's more pragmatic about doing anything she can to achieve her objective than being vilely manipulative as in the case of the latter. She also becomes less brutal as the story goes on.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: She was one till her parents blew up.
* VillainAntagonist: Initially. She [[WouldHurtAChild blows up half of a school full of innocent children]] just so that she can kill Yuki.
* VillainessesWantHeroes: Inverted, as Nishijima is the one who actively pursues Minene.
* VillainProtagonist: After joining Yukiteru. Don't forget that she still committed crimes which resulted in hundreds of casualties. [[WouldHurtAChild Even innocent children]].
* VisualDevelopment: So much that she's unrecognizable from her first to later appearances.
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler:Calls Yuki out after he says he wants to become god so he can bring his parents back to life, saying that with such a reason anyone would want to be god while there is people like her who has suffered much more.]]
* WildCard: [[spoiler: Especially in the final battle, she's an outside player that not even [=MurMur=] saw coming.]]
* WouldHurtAChild: Introduced blowing up half of a school full of innocent children.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]
* YouRemindMeOfX: To Yukiteru. See NotSoDifferent.

A man who loves his dogs more than anything else. His "Breeder's Diary" lets him check up on and control his army of dogs, which he can command to attack his enemies.
----

* TheBeastmaster: He commands squads of attack dogs.
* [[spoiler:FaceDeathWithDignity: Before getting killed by the Fourth, he calmly says his last words and gives a warning to Yukiteru about being wary of nice people.]]
* GourmetPetFood: Gives his dogs expensive steak and wine, while he himself dines on cup noodles.
* KansaiRegionalAccent: He speaks standard Japanese most of the time, but he slips into the dialect during his [[spoiler:last conversation with his daughter]].
* MeaningfulName: Tsukishima (月島) contains the kanji for moon, and his first name, Karyuudo, is read as "hunter". Goddess of the moon and hunting? That's Diana in the Dii Consentes.
* NonActionGuy: He uses his dogs [[spoiler:and his own daughter]] to fight on his behalf.
* NoNameGiven: [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep His real name]] isn't revealed until [[spoiler:after his death]].
* NotGoodWithPeople
* ParentalNeglect: He cares more for his dogs than for his child.
* RealMenWearPink: His diary is pink.
* [[RightHandCat Right Hand Dog]]
* [[spoiler:SoundOnlyDeath]]
* TheUnfought: The only diary holder that Yukiteru and Yuno never directly confronted.
* WineIsClassy: His prized 30 year wine [[spoiler:which he serves to his dogs]].

!!'''John Balks - The Eleventh'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/218px-John_Balks_1530.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' TakayaHashi (JP), ChristopherCoreySmith (EN)

The mayor of Sakurami and the one who suggested the idea of the Future Diary. His diary, "The Watcher", can spy on the contents of all other Future Diaries, making him one of the most formidable Diary Holders. His EvilPlan is to [[spoiler: link up the Eighth's Diary to the city's main server, turning every phone into an "Child Diary" and giving him nigh-omniscience.]]
----
* AllYourPowersCombined: He has the power to locate the other Diary users at all times [[spoiler: he planned to take it a step further, using Eighth's power to create an omnipotence completed with an endless supply of replaceable Child Diary users.]]
* {{Badass}}: Just on one occasion, but [[spoiler:when Minene made her first attack on him, he caught the grenade she threw at him without even looking in her direction, then nonchalantly [[GrenadeHotPotato threw the grenade back at her.]]]]
* BaldOfEvil: As well as a [[spoiler: [[ANaziByAnyOtherName a Nazi-eque liked minded thinker]].]]
* BigBrotherIsWatching: He's the mayor of the city, and he can spy on all other Diary Holders.
* ButtMonkey: Reduced to this in the Redial OVA. [=MurMur=] really seems to like shoving him down holes.
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler: Due to his Diary knowing the other Diary users' actions at all times]], he plans accordingly to all of them.
* DidntSeeThatComing[=/=]ThisCannotBe: [[spoiler:Yuno being able to open the vault he was in. The only ones who could open it were the Gasai family and Yuno was supposed to be an impostor since the third corpse in her house was revealed to be the "real" Yuno Gasai.]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: He acts like a gentleman around Kamado, but is completely antagonistic towards the other characters.
* GenreSavvy: When made a participant of the game, he decides to make his own diary, which can read all of the entries of the rest.
* AGlassOfChianti
* HappilyMarried: To [[spoiler: Kamado]] in the Redial manga.
* [[spoiler:TheHeavy: He convinced Deus to start the games in the first place.]]
* [[spoiler:HoistByHisOwnPetard: Balks hides himself in a vault in the bank once run by Yuno's parents, believing Yuno will be unable to use the retinal scanner to get in, under the belief she is not the real Yuno. It turns out she ''is'', and Balks has pretty much got himself into a corner.]]
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmtXA9y5Da8 Herrscher]]
* [[spoiler:KnowWhenToFoldEm: He cancels the entire game in the third world after realizing that he died because of it in the second world.]]
* LargeAndInCharge: One of the tallest characters in the series, plus having one of the strongest diaries to back up his boasts.
* LargeHam: Yeah.
* [[spoiler:LookOnMyWorksYeMightyAndDespair]]
* MeaningfulName: His last name "Balks" can also be read as "Bacchus", the same as the Roman god. TokyoPop seemed to pick up on the reference and translated his name using the same spelling "Bacchus". He's also one of the only diary holders whose namesake isn't a god listed in the Dii Consentes, along with Yomotsu Hirasaka.
** It probably explains why his and Yomotsu's diaries were modified last, making them Eleventh and Twelfth, respectively.
* {{Megane}}
* ANaziByAnyOtherName: [[spoiler:His ultimate goal is to use the power of Future Diaries to turn the people of Sakurami into a master race.]]
* [[spoiler: OffWithHisHead: Decapitated by Yuno.]]
* [[spoiler:PragmaticVillainy: At least in the third world. He convinces Deus to cancel the game and the creation of Future Diaries not because he has a change of heart or anything but because he learns that in the second world the game resulted in his death.]]
* ShipTease: Has a bit of it with Kamado. He acts much more gentlemanly towards her than towards other characters; in the manga after she undresses to reveal where she hid her Future Diary, he even gives her his own coat so she wouldn't feel uneasy. [[spoiler: And in one of the closing panels in chapter 59 they can be seen walking together.]] The scene where he gives her his coat wasn't included in the anime [[spoiler:but, on the other hand, in the last episode they are unambiguously shown to be a couple in the third world.]]
* SmugSnake: Very condescending towards First and Ninth in their attempts to reach him inside the vault.
* SuperpowerLottery: The Watcher hit the absolute jackpot.
* [[spoiler: UnclePennybags: To the Eighth's orphanage in the third world.]]
* UndisclosedFunds: Rich enough to have his own private army so to speak, a cellphone signal jammer installed in his own car [[spoiler:as a precaution against the Eighth's Child Diary owners]], and finally [[spoiler: his own supercomputer which is said to be the third greatest in processing power]].
* [[spoiler:TheVillainMakesThePlot: All of the insanity of the plot began with his desire for AGodAmI.]]
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Actually contributes to his downfall.
* VisionaryVillain

!!'''Yomotsu Hirasaka - The Twelfth'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/char_74359_4566.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' Yoshihisa Kawahara (JP), Ian Sinclair (EN)

A blind man who wants to be a superhero. His "Justice Diary" is an audio recorder that warns him of acts of "injustice" before they occur. It also gives him some sort of hypnosis power. While he claims to be a "Hero of Justice", his actions mark him more as a crazed vigilante.
----
* AllCrimesAreEqual: His diary records both littering and murder.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Assuming his backstory shown in the [=MurMur=] segment at the end of episode 5 is canon, before he got his Future Diary his attempts at being a superhero and helping others resulted in [[HeroWithBadPublicity people mocking him and throwing rocks at him if he was lucky, or mistaking him for a criminal and arresting him if he wasn't]].
* AntiVillain: Seems to be the only diary holder who truly wants to do "heroic" deeds, as opposed to the other diary holders who were mostly selfish or neutral.
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: In the second chapter of ''Mosaic'', he asks Minene why she hates God so much, and after getting a weak response, he then asks what happens after she kills God. He then points out that if she takes his place after killing him, then she would be God herself. Minene can't respond, and Yomotsu tells her that she's just a person who hates the world because of the hardships she had to suffer.
* {{Badass}}: [[{{Subverted}} Not really]], but it's fun watching him try. [[spoiler:Later DoubleSubverted in the third world, where he manages to catch Takao Hiyama.]]
* BlackAndWhiteInsanity: Believes quite strongly that the side that wins is the "good guys" while the losers are the "bad guys".
* BlindSeer: Played for laughs, especially with the whole SuperSentai deal.
* ChewingTheScenery: As his Hero self.
* ClarkKenting: He runs a merchandise shop for his hero mode in the ''Redial'' OVA.
* TheCuckooLanderWasRight: [[spoiler:Tsubaki was planning on deceiving Yukiteru and Yuno the entire time. Boy, was he right in believing that the cult was evil.]]
* DisabilitySuperpower: He's blind, so he gets enhanced hearing and hypnosis powers.
* DoppelgangerSpin: Does this with some brainwashed servants of Sixth, disguising them as himself [[SuperSentai while maintaining the sentai motif]]
* [[spoiler: EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Without his mask, which isn't clearly seen till the [=OVA=].]]
* EvilSoundsDeep: Inverted in the Japanese version, when going into his Hero mode his voice becomes more shrill and nasally. Played straight and justified in the dub.
* TheFaceless: He likes to wear a mask, and his face is never clearly shown [[spoiler:until the last episode of the anime and the ''Redial'' OVA]].
* ForGreatJustice: Criminals [[note]]and literring[[/note]] are nothing against the greater good.
* HenshinHero: Played either for laughs or very [[DissonantSerenity off putting]], since his costume face is done realistically [[note]] undressing and redressing[[/note]].
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice: Attempts one after learning he has a Dead End to take out Tsubaki, but fails when he attacks Yuki, Yuno, and Tsubaki; Yuno slashing his throat with an axe. However, this may have been intentional since Yomotsu opened Yuki's mind to the possibility Tsubaki was misleading him -- [[TheCuckooLanderWasRight she was]].]]
* HeroicWannabe: While he tries to do good deeds, [[spoiler: he doesn't do anything noticeably heroic till he captures Third.]]
* HeroWithBadPublicity: People understandably either view him as suspicious or a joke.
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98rPvXWHQJk Justice Rangers GO 12th!]]
* JusticeWillPrevail: Believes in this philosophy. [[spoiler: Third World Yomotsu and Tsubaki end up turning the Omekata cult into the Cult of Justice in the Redial manga.]]
* KnightTemplar: Littering and murder are crimes which deserve equal punishment.
* LargeHam: Especially in his costumed form.
* LimpAndLivid: Is very lean, which is very noticeable in his Hero state.
* MeaningfulName: Yomotsu Hirasaka is the name of the boundary between Life and Death in Japanese myth, and so he can be associated with the Roman god Pluto.
* MindControl: One of his powers...somehow.
* ShoutOut: To KamenRider and SuperSentai.
** His mask has a symbol very similar to that of one in the CodeLyoko series.
* SpandexLatexOrLeather: His comical superhero outfit consists of a full-body spandex suit with a sphere-like mask.
* TransformationSequence: His "transformation" sequence (which is simply him putting on the different articles of his costume and screeching "HENSHIIIN" the entire time) falls somewhere between hilarious and disturbing...though in the dub it's clearly the former.
* VigilanteMan: Goes back and forth between a heroic and villainous type.
* [[WhiteMaskOfDoom White Mask of Justice]]: A round bag with a rope tied around it.

!!'''Deus Ex Machina'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/deus_352.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' NorioWakamoto (JP), KentWilliams (EN)

The Lord of Time and Space who has called forth the Diary Holders to participate in a battle royale. [[spoiler:He is dying soon, so]] he wishes to pass on his power to the winner of the contest.
----
* ActorAllusion: [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist This isn't the first time]] [[KentWilliams he's]] played someone godlike before.
* AkashicRecords: He has it [[spoiler: as he planned to send Akise back since he served his purpose.]]
* AllPowerfulBystander: Despite being a literal [[PhysicalGod divine level]] RealityWarper [[DimensionLord who controls everything about his dimension]], he does not directly interfere with the games for two reasons, 1 it's against the rules he's set up [[spoiler: only interfering when knowing someone is bypassing the rules]] and two [[spoiler: [[SecretlyDying he's slowly decaying]]]].
* [[spoiler:BequeathedPower: Transfers half of his power to Minene.]]
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Honors and expects fair play within the games he supervises, but sees nothing morally wrong with conducting the survival game despite all the casualties it causes. He also likes to start wars for fun.
* [[spoiler: [[CantKillYouStillNeedYou Can't Let You Die, Still Need You]]: Deus saves Minene and gives her half of his power so she can stop [=MurMur=] and Yuno.]]
* CosmicKeystone: Without him, the universe collapses [[spoiler: made worse since he's SecretlyDying]].
* [[spoiler:DivineIntervention: He does this to prevent Minene's death.]]
* EnigmaticEmpoweringEntity: He gave the 12 holders their diary powers [[spoiler: as well as giving Minene half of his powers and a new arm.]]
* [[spoiler:[[GodIsDead God Is Dying]]: Part of the reason why he created the survival game.]]
* GodIsFlawed: He leans a bit closer to this in that he wants the survival game to play out fairly between the players and without outside intervention from himself or [=MurMur=], and honestly can't see the problem in it so long as he's kept entertained and his successor is chosen. He is also very willing to [[spoiler:cancel the whole game entirely]] when John Balks decides to [[spoiler:stop the Future Diary Project from developing further in the third world]].
* GodzillaThreshold: [[spoiler:Upon learning that Murmur purposely had the Fourth eliminated much earlier than planned, he becomes more cautious of her, and responds by placing the Observer [[note]]Akise[[/note]] on a more active role in the game.]]
** [[spoiler:Later, when it becomes glaringly obvious to Deus that Murmur is seen manipulating the game to go in Second's favor, it grows to the point that he had to rescue Minene from death and bestow her with half of his power to keep the game on track.]]
* [[spoiler:GracefulLoser: When Akise is able to prove his autonomy, Deus concedes that he is able to take his own actions and allows him back into the human world, able to change the game free of Deus' influence.]]
* HalfTruth: [[spoiler:When Yukiteru asks him to revive Rea, Deus replies than it's impossible. When questioned why that is so, he states that he's dying and losing his power. While he doesn't outright lie, the way he phrases his reply makes it look like it's only impossible for him in particular and that the new god will be able to revive Rea; he doesn't mention that even a god would only be able to revive the body but not the soul. As his later conversation with Akise shows, it's not that Deus himself isn't aware of this.]]
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPVZgdxFxAo EGOIST]]
* ItAmusedMe: Another part of his reason for creating the game.
* JerkassGod: He sits back and lets the players kill each other, only interfering due to players not playing by the rules. He doesn't care about how the battle game will emotionally scare the Diary users. [[spoiler:He then deconstructs every choice of free will that Akise ever did, even his love for Yuki, that being all programed.]]
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler: When he tells the truth to Akise about being an ArtificialHuman, Akise declares that his love for Yukiteru is genuine. Deus, who is nearly finished in returning Akise to the AkashicRecords, tells Akise that those feelings were also programmed into him. Given that Akise is very serious about his love for Yukiteru, it's a low blow, even if it ended up being true.]]
** [[spoiler:He also seriously considers following Eleventh's suggestion to remove Yukiteru and Yuno from the game when they fail to show any activity for five consecutive days. Given that Deus was pressed for time in choosing his successor before he dies, this ends up being more of a KickTheDog moment for Eleventh than Deus.]]
* KingOfAllCosmos: [[spoiler:Not as completely immortal as most.]]
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: His design looks like something out of BrianFroud's imagination than an anime character.
* NotSoImaginaryFriend: Yuki at first believes Deus to be his ImaginaryFriend. Turns out he isn't.
* TheOmniscient: While he is God, the [[ScryVsScry unstable nature]] of the Survival Game means he cannot keep track of everything. [[spoiler:So he uses an ArtificialHuman which he calls The Observer to record the events of the game, to check on the participants and investigate any irregularities which may endanger the game.]]
** For example when he noticed that the Tenth has hidden himself from the game, [[spoiler:the Observer was sent to check on him.]]
** Another is when Second digs a big pit and has buried something in her home. [[spoiler:The Observer was sent to investigate what she was trying to hide. Later revealed to be three corpses, two were Second's parents and the third is later revealed to be the Second belonging to this timeline. Deus deduces from this the nature of the Second, and plans accordingly.]]
* PalsWithJesus: Pretty much everyone who is able to visit the Hall of Causality is this to him since he's a pretty chill God. Special mention goes to Yukiteru though, whom Deus clearly favors over everyone else.
** Another is [[spoiler:with Balks as the two of them together founded the survival game.]]
* RulesLawyer: He puts a large emphasis on the rules [[spoiler: he found Tenth's avoidance to be a deviance from the game, so he planned accordingly, as well as planning against [=MurMur=] once it's clear that she favors Yuno.]]
* [[spoiler:SecretlyDying: The reason why he started the game in the first place.]]
* [[spoiler:YourDaysAreNumbered: By the time of the game, he was dying, so he wants the game to be completed as soon as possible.]]

!!'''[=MurMur=]'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/murmur_4761.png
->'''Voiced by:''' Manami Honda (JP), LeahClark (EN)

Deus Ex Machina's servant, who takes the form of a dark-skinned little girl. [[spoiler: She is not as loyal to him as anyone was led to believe.]]
----
* AffablyEvil: [[TheGadfly Innocently messes around with each of the diary users]], [[spoiler: despite being a traitor to God and a follower of a crazed {{Yandere}}]].
* AmbiguouslyBrown
* AntiHero [[HeroAntagonist Antagonist]]: [[spoiler: Third world Murmur from the Redial OVA. She's simply trying to fulfill her duty as a loyal servant of Deus and first world Murmur is a threat.]]
* ArsGoetia
* [[spoiler:TheAtoner: In the Redial OVA, the first world [=MurMur=] is trapped by the third world's incarnation with the first Yuno's memories. Through this she realises the enormity of pain she had caused and contacts the third Yuno via a keychain replica of herself to give her a proper happy ending.]]
* [[spoiler:BastardUnderstudy: Subverted in the end. It turns out she was loyal to Yuno, most likely because she became god in the first world.]]
* BewareTheSillyOnes
* BitchInSheepsClothing: She sets herself off up as a CloudCuckooLander as well as a BrattyHalfPint, [[spoiler: in reality, she's far more manipulate and malevolent]].
** [[spoiler: She's also much less adorable in her true form, especially with RedEyesTakeWarning]]
** More evident in ''Paradox''. Her {{jerkass}} personality seems to be directed at Akise only to the point that it makes it seem like she's homophobic. Heck, she goes as far as calling him a fag in ''Paradox''. In the main series, she shows her true personality after [[spoiler:Deus dies]].
* BlushSticker
* BunnyEarsLawyer: She's a silly character for the most part (despite the occasional slip up, like the incident that sets up the storyline for ''Paradox''), but she knows how to do her job. [[spoiler:And she is '''a lot''' more competent and devious than she first appears.]]
* ButtMonkey: In ''Paradox''. Might lean into being TheChewToy depending on the fans that read the story.
* CloudCuckooLander
* [[spoiler:ClippedWingAngel: Even after taking her OneWingedAngel form, its implied that it exhausted a lot of her strength, since she was easily taken down by her other still restrained self.]]
* EnigmaticMinion: Towards the middle of the story, [=MurMur=] starts hinting that she knows more than she lets on, perhaps more than Deus, and [[spoiler:manipulates the game accordingly. Her true purpose isn't revealed until the full story about Yuno being [=MurMur=]'s real god comes to light.]]
* [[spoiler:TheDragon: Towards the end, she fights off the [[EmpoweredBadassNormal empowered Minene]] while Yuno arranges her life in the third world.]]
** [[spoiler:DragonInChief: Even after Yuno took her place as the final boss, [=MurMur=] still seems more malevolent than her and tried to ensure Yuno's victory throughout the whole series while Yuno certainly didn't want to win the Survival Game again.]]
* FusionDance: [[spoiler: First World [=MurMur=] did this and absorbed Yuno's corpse, inheriting her memories in the process.]]
* GameFace: [[spoiler:Her OneWingedAngel form in spades.]]
* GirlishPigtails
* [[spoiler:AGodAmI: She takes over after Deus dies.]]
* [[spoiler:TheHeavy]]
* HumongousMecha: [[spoiler:Created one of these to fight Minene in the Redial OVA.]]
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zadFKAx58EY UBIQUITOUS ]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Mainly toward Akise. Otherwise, she mostly enjoys [[TheGadfly screwing around with everyone else.]]
* [[spoiler:JustBetweenYouAndMe: Shows Yukiteru the past events of the first world right after Yuno starts to attack him to "make the game more interesting". Since she was working under Yuno, she was probably expecting him to die right after showing him the past world. And she would've been right had it not been for Minene's interference.]]
* MeaningfulName: Named for the [[ArsGoetia Goetic demon]] Murmur. She also carries a small trumpet on her hip to reinforce the namesake. She eventually wears a crown just like the Murmur from myth is said to wear after [[spoiler:Deus' death]].
* MissExposition: In the dub, this is lampshaded in the second episode's make.
* [[spoiler:NotSoHarmlessVillain: Especially when her shackles are taken off.]]
* [[spoiler:ObfuscatingStupidity]]
* [[spoiler:OneWingedAngel: The form she takes after destroying her bracelets, a gray skinned, deranged version of herself with RedEyesTakeWarning.]]
* PerkyFemaleMinion
* PluckyComicRelief
* PurpleEyes
* RapunzelHair: It's the same length as her body.
* RestrainingBolt: The bracelets she wears keep her from acting against Deus's will, [[spoiler:or so he thought. In chapter 57, she takes them off. She was indeed serving God's will, but that God was not Deus.]]
* RulesLawyer
* ShipperOnDeck: Kind of. [[spoiler:In the Redial OVA, her actions reunited Yuki and Yuno, showing that, to some degree, she does approve of their relationship, though she might not have really cared before.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Although both fan translations of the Manga and the official Tokyopop release spelled her name "[=MuruMuru=]", the opening to the anime displays her name as "[=MurMur=]".
* VerbalTic: Ends every sentence with "-noja", the equivalent of the standard Japanese explanatory expression "-noda" in some Western Japanese dialects[[labelnote:*]]namely, the ones spoken in Okayama, Hiroshima and Yamaguchi prefectures, according to the [[http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%97%A5%E6%9C%AC%E8%AA%9E%E3%81%AE%E6%96%B9%E8%A8%80%E3%81%AE%E6%AF%94%E8%BC%83%E8%A1%A8#.E8.BF.91.E7.95.BF.E3.81.8B.E3.82.89.E4.B8.AD.E5.9B.BD.E3.81.AB.E3.81.8B.E3.81.91.E3.81.A6.EF.BC.88.E5.B1.B1.E9.99.BD.E9.81.93.EF.BC.89 Japanese]] [[TheOtherWiki Other Wiki]].[[/labelnote]].

!!'''Aru Akise'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/akise_aru_mn_1774.png
->'''Voiced by:''' AkiraIshida (JP), ToddHaberkorn (EN)

Yuki's classmate who develops a peculiar interest in him. He desires to be a great detective, and dives head-first into the mysteries surrounding the Diary Holders. He later gets from Eighth's Diary the "Detective Diary" which predicts other diary owners' actions regardless of how they change the future. In ''Paradox'', however, he borrows Yukiteru's "Indiscriminate Diary".
----
* AllLovingHero: In ''Paradox''. [[spoiler: He does all in his power to prevent the many casualties that Yuno originally caused in the main series. This includes not involving anyone during Ninth's hostage situation and battling her on his own (albeit [[ButtMonkey using [=MurMur=] as a fake hostage]] as well), figuring out what the cult was planning to do to Sixth and save her, prevent Fifth from becoming murderous by saving his parents and making Twelfth realize that his view of the world is wrong and he can still redeem himself by saving another. He even gets to befriend Seventh and Eighth in said situation. Naturally, the only person who does not like this attitude one bit is [=MurMur=].]]
** Also in the main series, but by proxy. [[spoiler: [[PassingTheTorch His dying message gives Yukiteru awareness of the]] AlternateTimeline, prompting Yukiteru to improve the lives of all the participants upon arrival in the third world.]]
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: In ''Paradox'', in regards to Yuki and Tsubaki (though it might be just part of his plan in the latter's case).
* AmateurSleuth: Aspiring to become a GreatDetective.
* [[spoiler:AngelUnaware: He's later revealed to be the Observer, an ArtificialHuman specifically created by Deus to monitor the game from within.]]
* [[spoiler:ArtificialHuman: He's really the Observer created by Deus to monitor the game to prevent cheating.]]
* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead: The Redial OVA imply that third world Akise is second world Akise.]]
* BadassAdorable
* BadassNormal: He doesn't have a Future Diary, but he can still go toe-to-toe with Diary Holders.
** [[spoiler:EmpoweredBadassNormal: After he's revealed to be an ArtificialHuman created by Deus to observe the game, he receives the most powerful future diary of all through the Eighth's server system and uses it to become a terrifying opponent for even ''Yuno''.]]
* BarehandedBladeBlock: In the manga during [[spoiler:Yukiteru's and Yuno's last fight with Eleventh, he saves Eighth from Yuno by grabbing the blade of Yuno's sword when she's attacking her]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Akise rarely gets pissed off even when Yuno tries to kill him multiple times. [[spoiler: The only time he lost it was when he spared Yuno and she responds by calling Yuki and lying to him and manipulates him to kill his friends.]]
* BishieSparkle: In ''Paradox'', especially in chapter 3.
* {{Bishounen}}
* BiTheWay: If ''Paradox'' is ''anything'' to go off of. [[note]]In which he insists very clearly he is not gay, and seems to have a weird fondness for Tsubaki Kasugano, despite the undeniable HoYay with Yukiteru.[[/note]]
* BodyguardCrush: On Yuki.
* BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler:His confrontation with Deus. It's a real shocker to find out that you're not even human and then denied the things that made you you. The pride in his detective skills as well as his love for Yuki were denied by God himself. Fortunately, he breaks out of this quickly.]]
* TheComicallySerious
* CrazyJealousGuy: Towards Yuki, but only when Yuno is involved and rather subtle compared to how Yuno is a ClingyJealousGirl for Yuki [[spoiler:until the final confrontation]].
* CrazyPrepared: Near the beginning of his [[spoiler:final]] fight with Yuno.
* DeclarationOfProtection: To Yuki.
* {{Determinator}}: [[spoiler:Not even '''being completely beheaded''' stops him from giving Yukiteru a final warning about Yuno.]]
* DidntSeeThatComing: [[spoiler:Yuno having two Diaries. Of course no one besides [=MurMur=] or Yuno would have seen it coming.]]
* DissonantSerenity
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: [[spoiler:Akise briefly having Yukiteru's physical appearance at the beginning of the Redial OVA is almost definitely a [[MythologyGag reference to Paradox]].]]
* DramaticIrony: [[spoiler:He spends most of his run outsmarting diary holders with just his wits. When he gets his own diary Yuno outsmarts him and his diary with a clever BatmanGambit.]]
* [[spoiler:ExplainingYourPowerToTheEnemy: Reveals that he has a Child Diary at the very beginning of his final confrontation with Yuno, and soon after that explains what its power is as well. This makes it possible for Yuno to find a way to use that information against Akise himself, thus contributing to his ultimate defeat and death.]]
* {{Expy}}: His similarities to Kaworu of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' go way past the point of being unintentional. Like Kaworu, he's a [[MysticalWhiteHair white-haired]] guy voiced by AkiraIshida who seems to be in love with the meek main character, and turns out to be [[spoiler:an "angel" and later dies of decapitation]].
* [[spoiler:FirstLawOfResurrection: Despite the fact that the survival game never started in the third world and thus Deus didn't need an observer to keep up with it, Akise is shown to be alive and well in the third world in one of the closing panels of chapter 59. The manga doesn't give any explanation for his recreation. In the anime, third world Deus is shown using Akise to gather information about the impact Yukiteru, Yuno, and Minene made on the third world, so he presumably recreated Akise for that purpose.]]
* [[spoiler:ForcefulKiss: Gives one to Yukiteru ''[[BullyingADragon right in front of Yuno]]''.]]
* GreatDetective: [[spoiler:In the Redial manga he goes on to become a world famous detective.]]
* GuileHero: Relies on his own wits to trick his enemies rather than the ScryVsScry of the other Diary users.
* HeroAntagonist: In contrast to Yuno's VillainProtagonist.
* HeroicAlbino: Has shown shades of this in the actual series. Played straight in ''Paradox''.
* HeroicResolve: [[spoiler:Even though he was deleted and Deus proved that everything he did was planned out as God's will, he decides to forge his own future from that point on, creates his own future diary with Eighth's server system, and [[DeclarationOfProtection swears to protect Yukiteru]].]]
* HeroicRROD: [[spoiler:When he confronts Deus on his own and finds out that he's an ArtificialHuman, he tries to prove that everything he had done up to that point wasn't programmed into him, but with each of Deus' rejections, his body decayed more and more as it was returned into Deus's AkashicRecords. When he finally tried declare that his love for Yukiteru was real, Deus rejected that as well, and said it was also something that he willed to happen as {{God}}.]]
* HiddenHeartOfGold: Towards Yuki.
* HopelessSuitor: Was in love with Yuki and even tried to pursue him, but it was quite clear that he was more interested in Yuno.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: [[spoiler:During his last meeting with Yukiteru he claims that not stopping him from killing Mao and Kosaka was necessary, because it meant that the future predicted by his diary wouldn't change and that he would manage to kill Yuno. It's never made clear whether the readers are supposed to agree with Akise that letting Mao and Kosaka die was really necessary.]]
* IfItsYouItsOkay: Akise claims that he's not into boys. However, he says that he just loves Yuki.
* IGaveMyWord: Akise is one of the few characters that constantly tells the truth to Yuki and never breaks his promise to him. [[spoiler:But it was almost certainly averted with his promise to Kamado that he would't hand her over to Yukiteru in exchange for giving him a Child Diary. When Yukiteru found him after killing Mao and Kosaka, Akise was guarding the unconscious Kamado. As she was awake and running away from Yukiteru while his friends were stopping him just in the previous chapter, Akise must have been the one who caught her and knocked her out, as nobody else could have done that. And he almost certainly did that with an intention of letting Yukiteru kill her or even kiling her himself, as he already stated that he wanted Yukiteru to be god.]]
* ILetYouWin: [[spoiler: Implied to have intentionally lost to Yuno in the Redial OVA, as she finds the sword she took from him allowed her to go further in when her path was blocked.]]
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfwvNGzy2WI The Search For A Certain Truth]]
* IncrediblyObviousTail: When tailing [[spoiler:Tenth]], and indeed he gets spotted.
* TheKidWithTheRemoteControl: [[spoiler: Third World Deus gives Akise the demon [[ArsGoetia Gremory]] who obeys his every command and comes to like Akise.]]
* [[spoiler:LastKiss: More like a stolen kiss, but it was probably his first with Yuki as well as his last as Yuno kills him shortly afterwards.]]
* LoveAtFirstSight: In ''Paradox'', Akise falls in love with the wounded Yuki at first sight.
* MeaningfulName: Named after Apollo.
* MysticalWhiteHair: His white hair certainly makes him look different from others. It later turns out [[spoiler:he isn't even human]].
* NiceGuy: One of the nicest characters in the series, [[BewareTheNiceOnes for the most part.]] [[spoiler: He didn't kill Yuno when he had the chance because of his better judgment. However, he soon regrets it, and she kills him.]]
* [[spoiler:NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Despite Akise sparing Yuno's life when he had the upper hand, she manages to trick his diary by forcing his blade into her abdomen, fulfilling his diary's prophecy and forcing him to waste his time in bandaging her wound so that she won't die, knowing that Yukiteru would lose his trust in Akise if he had allowed Yuno to bleed out. Once he runs to help the others, Yuno calls Yukiteru to lie to him about Akise and his friends, causing Hinata, Mao, and Kosaka to die as a result. Akise even relents that he should have killed her instead of letting her live.]]
* NotSoAboveItAll: For being such a heroic person, he's equally as {{Yandere}} to Yuki as Yuno is.
* NotSoDifferent: From Yuno.
* [[spoiler:OffWithHisHead: How he dies.]]
* [[spoiler:OutGambitted: To be fair, no one aside from [[=MurMur=] knew Yuno had a second diary.]]
* TheQuietOne: Usually.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: He's a subversion of the trope as despite being a very subtle {{yandere}}, he's mostly a nice person overall. [[spoiler:DoubleSubverted in his final confrontation with Yuno; he went for the kill and was only thwarted when Yuno was revealed to be holding out the second Yuno's future diary for him to smash.]]
* ShipperOnDeck: Subverted. At first he seems to be pushing Yuki to go out with Yuno going as far as to set them up for a date that could very well make them closer than before. However, this is so he can [[spoiler:trespass Yuno's home hoping to dig up information that will make Yuki realize how much of a bad person she is]].
** [[spoiler:Possibly zig-zagged in the Redial OVA, given that he intentionally lost to the third world's Yuno, and knowing what would happen if she freed the first world's [=MurMur=].]]
* ShipTease: A ''lot'' of this with Yukiteru in the main story and even stronger ''Paradox''. Also has a fair amount with Tsubaki in ''Paradox'', too.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Yukiteru-sexual. [[spoiler:Purposely made to be this way so that he would watch over Yukiteru for Deus.]]
* SpannerInTheWorks:
** The reason Tenth got caught in the first place is that he assumed that Akise was a diary wielder and was out to kill him. These turn of events later lead to his death.
** [[spoiler:He almost ruins [=MurMur=]'s plans in ''Paradox'' by preventing the tragedies that happen to nearly all the characters.]]
** [[spoiler:In the main series, his dying message to Yukiteru serves as a catalyst which triggers the events leading to the final act.]]
* [[{{Deuteragonist}} Tetragonist]]: The fourth most prominent protagonist after Yuki, Yuno and Minene.
* ThouShaltNotKill: Unlike Yuno, Akise does all in his power to avoid killing someone. [[spoiler:This backfires on him in the end.]] May be from [[spoiler:his role as the Observer]].
* {{Yandere}}: Much more subtle than Yuno, but it seems to be there. While usually nice for everyone, he did prove on a few occassions that he's willing to sacrifice others for Yukiteru's sake. [[spoiler:Once, without knowing whether it'll kill him or not, he instructed Yukiteru to break Kosaka's Child Diary, to see what might happen to him and to prevent Eighth from getting information from Kosaka's diary. Yukiteru did as he was told without any objections. Thankfully, since Kosaka wasn't bound by the game like the other diary holders, he lived.]]
** Made even more obvious after [[spoiler:Hinata's death, when Akise's diary predicted that Yukiteru would also kill Mao and Kosaka. Despite arriving at the scene in time to prevent this, Akise decided to abandon them to their fates instead. When questioned about this decision by Yukiteru, he replied that his diary also predicted that he's going to kill Yuno in a few minutes, so he didn't want to do anything that might have changed that future.]]
** His vague {{yandere}} tendencies become less vague in ''Paradox'', in that he is much more open about his desire to make sure that Yukiteru becomes a god.

Later in the series, it is upgraded to the "Neo Kosaka King Diary", which predicts the brilliant moments of the people around him as well.

* TheFriendNobodyLikes: He hangs around with Yuki, Akise, Hinata, and Mao, but they actually don't like him at all since he's kind of a jerk.

* BeautyMark
* MeaningfulName: If Yukiteru is Jupiter (see his section above), then Rea is his Titaness mother Rhea.

Yuki's father who left after a divorce years ago. He and Yukiteru are shown spending some father-son bonding after a long time since the divorce around 2/3 into the manga, where he is introduced. He really seems to care for Yukiteru and Rea [[spoiler: or so we are led to believe ([[DoubleSubversion until that is subverted too]]). He is killed by the Eleventh's henchmen.]]
----
* DirtyCoward: [[spoiler:He jumps out of a collapsing Sakurami Tower by ''stealing his son's parachute'' leaving him to die and then he stabs his ex-wife (which kills her) when she stops him from escaping because he's terrified that she'll tell the police he just left his son to die on a collapsing tower. However, he likely [[AccidentalMurder did not intend to kill his ex-wife.]]]]
* DisappearedDad: He left Yuki years ago after he and Rea got a divorce. He came back though.
* HandsomeLech: He's {{Bishonen}} and very pervy.
* ItsAllAboutMe: His most prominent flaw is that he puts himself and his own troubles before everyone else. [[spoiler:He shows up just to find and break Yuki's Diary so that the Eleventh will clear the '''3 million yen''' debt he owes. However, he doesn't seem to know that doing so will kill Yuki.]]
** [[spoiler:As a sidenote, that comes out to roughly $30,000 US dollars -- not all that unreal as debts go.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: He puts his problems before anyone else's [[SharedFamilyQuirks something that he shares with his son to a lesser extent.]]
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: With all that said and done, [[spoiler:he didn't know that destroying the Diary meant killing his son. All he knew was that if he broke his son's cellphone, his debt would be wiped clean: that would give him the chance to go back to his family and make amends.]]
* MeaningfulName: Fitting with the rest of his family's ThemeNaming, "Kurou" resembles "Cronus". [[spoiler:Not to mention how he tries to kill his son...]]
* [[spoiler:OffingTheOffspring: He tries to destroy Yuki's Diary, although it seems like he doesn't know that this will kill Yuki.]]
* PetTheDog: After [[spoiler:he kills Rea and appears to be about to eliminate the evidence and escape]], we learn that [[spoiler:he had retrieved a telescope he had been previously forced to pawn so that he could gaze at the stars and calm himself before turning himself in. He also asks Yuki to start over with him when his sentence is over, to which he agrees.]] Despite [[spoiler:trying to sell Yuki out to the enemy, and murdering his mother]], it turns out those were just horrible mistakes that he never meant to happen and all he wanted was for the family to be happy... [[spoiler:[[RedemptionEqualsDeath and then he dies]].]]
* [[spoiler:RedemptionEqualsDeath: Yuki was willing to give him another chance after he turned himself and fulfilled his sentence, but the Eleventh's men killed him before he could do any of that. Ergo, Yuki forgave him completely and then freaks out on the murderers.]]
** [[spoiler: Justified in how he was rather EasilyForgiven for abandoning his son on the tower and for killing his ex-wife (even if it was by accident). He did feel remorseful, but it wasn't enough to justify his actions and was really the only way to make him more sympathetic.]]

* BadassOnPaper: Killing Third put him in the running for among Deus's prime choices for potential godhood. It also makes him a prime target for the other diary owners.

* DesignatedVictim: Considers himself this in early chapters, often being put in situations he does not want to be in. This trope comes and goes over the course of the story.

* TheDulcineaEffect: Towards Tsubaki, quickly jumping in to save her and escape with her despite having just met her. It's not until [[spoiler: she makes it obvious that she's actually a ManipulativeBitch that wants to kill him that he decides to go back to teaming up with Yuno.]]

* {{Expy}}: A combination of [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji Ikari]] and [[Manga/BlackLagoon Rock]].

* [[spoiler:GodCouple: With third world Yuno, who is given first world Yuno's memories and becomes god to save him from spending eternity in the void the second world has become.]]
* GrewASpine: Tries to be more self-assertive and confident throughout the series. [[spoiler:This backfires horribly.]]

* HeroicSelfDeprecation: He often states "I know I'm pathetic! I know it! But...I'm weak!".
* [[ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe I Can't Believe A Girl Like You Would Notice Me]]: When Yuno looks his way for a moment in the first episode, he quickly brushes it off with "Nah, can't be," and is genuinely surprised that she even knew his name[[note]]Oddly, he's shown conversing with her once [[FlashBack a year prior to the third episode]][[/note]]. Of course, his reaction to learning [[StalkerWithACrush the truth]] [[{{Yandere}} of the matter]] is a little less than enthusiastic.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: He wishes to overcome his shy behaviour and make friends. Too bad Yuno wants to be his OnlyFriend...

* LoveMakesYouCrazy: Later, Yuki goes quite crazy for his [[spoiler:dead]] parents AND Yuno.
* LoveMartyr: Once he genuinely falls for Yuno, the sheer amount of ''crap'' he puts up with from her while still sticking loyally by her side most definitely makes him this.
* MeaningfulName: His last name contains the kanji for "heaven" and can be read as "heavenly field". It's fitting, considering his first name is a corruption of "Jupiter", the Roman GodOfGods. When his full name is roughly translated into Latin it becomes Jupiter Caelus/Jupiter Caelestis, two of Jupiter's known epithets. [[spoiler:He ends up winning the game of the second world among the other potential gods.]]

* [[spoiler:{{Necromantic}}: His eventual reason for trying to win the game is to bring his parents back to life.]]
* NiceHat: He occasionally wears a brown hat atop.
* NoGuyWantsToBeChased: Yukiteru makes it very obvious that Yuno's insanely aggressive obsession and pursuit of him is what puts him off and scares him away from her. Numerous times, he suggests that if she were to be more passive and gentle, he would fall for her completely in an instant.
* NonActionGuy: In the beginning, he leaves most of the fighting to Yuno, though it's [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]] since even then he offs three other diary owners even before [[TookALevelInBadass taking a level in badass]].

* NonActionSnarker: In the English dub.
* OfficialCouple: With Yuno.
* OnlySaneMan: Out of all the diary holders, he appears to be the most sane and rational. However as the series goes on, he slowly begins to slip.
* [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Ordinary Middle School Student]]: Before the Survival Game, there was nothing really abnormal about his life.
* PleasePutSomeClothesOn: His default reaction to Yuno being PantsFree, [[WalkingSwimsuitScene in a]] SlipperySwimsuit, or ''undressing right in front of him'', though never verbally.
* TheProtagonist: He is the first and main protagonist in the series.
* {{Protectorate}}: Yuno's top priority is to protect Yuki at any cost.
* SanitySlippage: Through the series Yuki tries his best to stay clear of the violence going on around him, but finally give in after [[spoiler:the death of his parents. But the final straw is when his friends tell him he can't resurrect the dead even as god, which had been how he justified the NecessaryEvil of killing the rivals in the game.]]
* SayMyName: Yuki escapes from [[spoiler:Yuno's LotusEaterMachine]] by [[spoiler:turning down the opportunity to go stargazing with his parents]] and screaming Yuno's name.
* SharedFamilyQuirks: All of the [[CowardlyLion spineless]] traits come from his dad, which is balanced with his mom's niceness.
* ShrinkingViolet: A rare male example. Part of his CharacterDevelopment involves standing up for himself, on his own.
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:He hijacks the entire future of the third Survival game when he follows Yuno to the third world, since his data entries in the second game show up in third world's John Balks's diary and warn him of the incoming disasters. It changes every diary holder's future and gives them happy endings.]]

* SupportingProtagonist: He's the point of view character, but the one who takes more action in the story is Yuno. Later he [[TookALevelInBadass Takes A Level In Badass]] and becomes more prominent for the plot.
* TearsOfFear: He tends to cry in fear often in the beginning.
* TookALevelInBadass: Hey, it was bound to happen eventually. He ditches the darts in favor of a sub-machine gun, for one.
* TragicDream: Yukiteru's dream is to someday go stargazing with his parents together as a family, but that dream became impossible ever since they got a divorce [[spoiler:and died]]. When [[spoiler:he is trapped inside Yuno's LotusEaterMachine]], Yukiteru almost gets his dream but at the end, he chooses [[spoiler:Yuno]] instead.
* TurnTheOtherCheek: Yuki's quite willing to give second chances, especially towards Yuno. A lot. The major example is when he ''very'' quickly forgives [[spoiler:his father for ''killing his mother'']].
* TheUnfettered: Becomes this throughout the course of the series.
* UnholyMatrimony: With Yuno, eventually.
* WeakButSkilled: For a long time he's not much of a fighter, but Yuki is among the most skilled at using his diary both in and out of combat.
* [[spoiler:WellIntentionedExtremist: Later, Yuki does really extreme things like tricking Eighth and massacring her orphans in the name of becoming God and bring everyone who died back to life.]]

Her "Yukiteru Diary" tells her what's happening to Yuki at every 10-minute interval, and won't show anything unrelated to him except for her own DEAD END. Since Yuki's diary records everything except what happens to him, the two of them presumably make a formidable team. If only she was more comforting to be around...
----
* AbductionIsLove: [[spoiler: Yuno drugs and kidnaps Yuki to protect him until July 28th, chaining him to a chair. Yuki eventually breaks free thanks to his friends, and abandons Yuno. It doesn't last though.]]
* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Yuno is typically armed with a variety of kitchen implements, but the damage she does with them is out of this world.
* AbusiveParents: Although only her mother was the abusive one. Due to her father Ushio staying away at work, her mother Saika abused her, wanting her to become the "perfect citizen".

* [[spoiler:AccidentalMurder: When Yuno finally got fed up of Saika's abuse, she locked Saika and Ushio in the same cage Saika locked her, hoping they would realize how she felt and change back to their old selves. They didn't, and eventually died of hunger.]]
* ActionGirlfriend: Almost immediately after stumbling into The Game, Yukiteru encounters Yuno who makes it her top priority to protect him from harm and is the one who does most of the fighting in the beginning. The only thing that stops her from being a straight example is the fact that she's a {{Yandere}} who is batshit frickin' ''insane''.
* AggressiveSubmissive: She is very direct and aggressive towards Yukiteru, but when she [[spoiler:finally "becomes one" with him]] she becomes super-shy.
* TheAllSolvingHammer:
** Yuno often resorts to pulling out her knife to deal with troubling situations.
** She uses a literal hammer to [[spoiler:ScrewDestiny and smash apart the space-time continuum to rescue Yukiteru at the end of the manga]].
* AllTakeAndNoGive: The true nature of her relationship with Yuki. Yuki uses Yuno as a guard whilst Yuno uses Yuki as emotional support. Eventually Yuno acknowledges this [[spoiler:and tries to convince herself and Yuki that their love has been fake, and they have been merely using one another, so he gives up on her and she can kill him to go back in time without regrets. She fails to convince Yuki or herself and it turns out that maybe their love isn't that meaningless after all.]]
* [[spoiler:AlternateTimeline: The Yuno that's currently obsessed with 'Yukki' is from one, and the third corpse in her house is the Yuno from the current world.]]
* [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl Always Save the Guy]]: Yuno will do ''anything'' to protect Yukiteru.
* AntiVillain: Yuno certainly is a batshit crazy {{Yandere}}, but she can come off as sympathetic due to her past and the circumstances she must face in the series. However, many of her actions [[KickTheDog go beyond justifiable]] and make it hard to actually sympathize with her.
* [[spoiler:AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: She already became god by winning the Survival Game in the first world. Her third world self also becomes god.]]
* AttractivenessIsolation: In her backstory in the anime. The manga on the other hand averts this; it is shown that before the main story started several of her schoolmates tried to ask her out, but she turned them all down.
* AxeCrazy: Especially when she thinks her relationship with Yukiteru is threatened.
* AnAxeToGrind: Her most iconic weapon probably due to the fact it's a good way to show how psychotic and violent she is.
* BadassAdorable: She is beautiful, adorably {{Moe}}, extremely in love with Yukiteru and incredibly skilled in combat.
** [[spoiler:And the third world Yuno appears to have inherited the first world Yuno's skill in combat, if her brief (and seemingly one-sided) fight against Akise in the Redial OVA is any indication.]]

* BandageBabe: Yuno is wearing multiple bandages during the battle versus 7th in Chapter 33.
* TheBaroness: She's definitely got the Sexpot type appearance and age but has the fear factor of the Rosa Klebb type. She's young and attractive, and yearns for [[TheHero Yukiteru]]. Yuki himself though is downright terrified of her, [[spoiler:but she kills herself to let Yuki live.]]
* BattleCouple: With Yuki.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Yuno's devotion to Yukiteru stems from him jokingly making a marriage proposal to her [[spoiler:right after she killed her parents, spurring her into devoting her future to him]].
* BerserkButton: Threaten or harm Yukiteru in any way, and Yuno goes into an UnstoppableRage that you will most likely not survive. And should you [[BigRedButton kiss Yukiteru right in front of her]], you '''will''' die.
* [[spoiler:[[BigBadFriend Big Bad Girlfriend]]: In the last few chapters, Yuno becomes Yukiteru's final enemy after he refuses to kill her and he discovers she is actually the Yuno from an AlternateTimeline.]]
* [[spoiler:BodyBackupDrive: After being DrivenToSuicide, [=MurMur=] and Deus from the third world combine first Yuno's memories with her third world self's body so she can become god and save Yukiteru.]]

* BrokenAce: She's smart, beautiful, diligent and an extremely dangerous AxCrazy {{Yandere}}.
* BrokenBird: Yuno is incredibly broken from having to [[spoiler:kill her parents, going through the survival game once before, losing the only person that gave her a reason to live (Yukiteru), and having to go through it all ''again,'' killing her past self in the process]].
* CassandraTruth: When Yuki refuses to listen to her warnings about [[spoiler:Tsubaki and her followers]].
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: In the manga at least, [[spoiler:by the time of the last fight with Eleventh in the second world]] her fighting experience made her strong enough to cut grown men [[spoiler:(in this case Eleventh's mooks)]] in half with a sword. In one case she is shown cutting a man in half while holding her sword with one hand.
** [[spoiler:The third world's Yuno appears to have inherited this to some degree, if her fight against Akise is any indication. Though whether or not she inherited the strength as well as the agility remains to be seen.]]
* ClingyJealousGirl: She won't let anyone, male or female, get close to her beloved Yuki. Yuki's mother is a notable lucky one, since she was nice to Yuno and approved of their relationship.
* ClothingDamage: When [[spoiler:Tsubaki orders her followers to strip and gang-rape Yuno]].
* [[spoiler:CouldntFindAPen: When the first Yuno performs a time leap to the second world and kills her second self, the latter writes "Help!" on the wall using her own blood.]]

* CreepyMonotone: In the English dub.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Pink hair and eyes.
* CuteAndPsycho: Her normal appearance, high pitch voice, and "cute" mannerisms only help underline how ''nuts'' she is when she snaps and makes her even creepier.
* CuteBruiser: How she can lop off body part after body part with just kitchen cutlery is anyone's guess.
* DarkActionGirl: She is one of the strongest fighters in the game and also a terrifying psychopath.
* DarkIsEvil: Appearance-wise, although her name's meanings have connections with [[LightIsNotGood light]].
* [[spoiler:DeadPersonImpersonation: She impersonates herself!]]
* [[spoiler:DeathSeeker: Not outright stated, but Yuno heavily implies that she wants Yukiteru to be the winner of the game in the second world, rather than win it herself and repeat the whole scenario a third time. She only tries to kill him when he absolutely refuses to take her life, and she decides to repeat the game in the third world for another shot at setting him up to win while spending more time with him again. And even then, when Yukiteru told her to just stab him and be the winner of the second world's game, she decides to just [[DrivenToSuicide kill herself]] anyway.]]
* DeclarationOfProtection: She swears to protect Yukiteru at any cost.
* {{Deuteragonist}}

* EvilLaughter: She can't help herself from this after she successfully [[spoiler: manipulates Yuki to kill Hinata.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilOrphan: Saika and Ushio weren't her biological parents, they adopted her.]]
* EvilSoundsDeep: Much like [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} B.B. Hood/Bulleta]], Yuno goes from squeaky and adorable to guttural and menacing whenever she's incredibly pissed.
* FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon
* FanServicePack: Yuno went from having an appropriately-sized chest for a middle schooler (fairly small in the beginning) to having large breasts in the course of about two chapters.
* FauxAffablyEvil: At school she is seen as a SchoolIdol and is very nice to everyone around her. But when you get to know her, you realize she is actually a {{sociopath}}ic, [[ManipulativeBitch Manipulative]], AxCrazy {{Yandere}}.
* FeminineWomenCanCook: Uses it to impress Yukiteru's mother. How feminine she is is up for debate though, considering her fallback plan if that didn't work was to use her "tools."
* ForcefulKiss: Steals Yukiteru's FirstKiss during their first meeting in the series.
* ForTheEvulz: Some of her killings can be best reasoned as this.
* GasChamber: In a surprising change from the manga, [[spoiler:Yuno traps Akise, Mao and Kosaka in a room which is filling with gas. In the manga, she filled it with concrete.]]
* GirlishPigtails: Subverted. They make her seem cute and innocent at first, but she quickly shows her true colours later on.
* GirlWithPsychoWeapon: Though, unlike other {{Yandere}}s, she doesn't seem to have an iconic weapon. She is most commonly portrayed with the [[AnAxeToGrind axe]] that she wields in the battle against the Sixth, though.
* [[spoiler:GodCouple: Her third world self with Yuki.]]
* [[spoiler:GodIsDead: She had already become god in the first world, but dies by committing suicide to ensure Yuki lives.]]
* [[spoiler:GodIsEvil: The psycho {{Yandere}} was the one who became god in the first world.]]
* [[spoiler:GodWasMyCopilot: For Yuki. Unlike most cases of this trope, an evil influence. However she has little power in this world.]]
* GoodGirlGoneBad
* GoThroughMe: Yuno is more than willing to put herself on the line to protect Yuki.
* GreenEyedMonster: She already showed signs of this before the games began. It's very evident that she's jealous of Yuki's friends and [[spoiler: even though they don't need to die to complete the game she tricks Yuki into killing them all and beheads Akise herself]].
* GuileHeroine: Has an impressive bout against the Twelfth by taking advantage of his heightened sense of hearing.
* HairDecorations: Her red ribbons.
* [[spoiler:HeartwarmingOrphan: Her third world self.]]
* [[spoiler:HeelRealization: Realizes just how warped she's become once she sees her family in the third world come together again to protect her younger self. [[IgnoredEpiphany However, she believes herself to be too far gone for redemption and makes a suicidal move to try to kill them all with the threat of Kurusu shooting her dead.]] [[ZigzaggedTrope She eventually settles on stabbing herself and letting Yukiteru live instead.]]]]
* [[spoiler:HotGoddess: She is the one who became God in the first world and also quite attractive.]]
* HyperAwareness: She was able to tell her and Yuki's food was poisoned... ''by feeling that the cherry tomatoes were too heavy''... ''while balancing it on her fork.''
* HypercompetentSidekick: She has much more experience in the Diary Game than Yukiteru does and she does most of the fighting.
* IllKillYou: [[spoiler: "ARU AKISE, YOU WILL DIE HERE AND NOW!"]]
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jlb8eq_WSP8 Red Love]] for her {{Yandere}} self and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1retTd8LDY Happy Love]] for her normal self.
* IndifferentBeauty: Yuno is aware of how popular she is at school, but she doesn't care.
* InLoveWithLove: Her obsession with Yukiteru is an extremely warped version of this. She just wants to make sure he will marry her so she can have some hope for the future.
* InsaneEqualsViolent: Probably the craziest and most violent character in the series.
* [[spoiler:InterruptedSuicide: She actually tries to kill herself seconds before her death, provoking the third world Kurusu into firing a bullet at her. [=MurMur=] saves her.]]
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: She says she's willing to die for Yuki to ensure he wins the game, and even offers to let him kill her. [[spoiler:She also goes through with it when Yukiteru flat out suggests she should kill him so she can have a place in this world.]]
* KnifeNut: The knife is one of her main weapons.
* KubrickStare: After [[spoiler:Yuki discovers the room in her house that contains the corpses of her parents and her second world self]], Yuno gives Yuki a seriously terrifying glare through his letterbox - while wishing him a ''good night''.
* LackOfEmpathy: To everyone other than Yukiteru. When [[spoiler:Tsubaki]] told her that she was going to destroy the world after becoming god Yuno's only gripe with that was that it would also kill Yukiteru. Late in the series she outright states that she doesn't care how many more people she'll kill in the future, because they are all useless pawns [[spoiler:and because they'll be revived anyway after she goes back in time again (ignoring the fact that [[AlternateTimeline technically they would be different people]])]].
* LadyMacbeth
* [[spoiler:LastKiss: Before dying, Yuno asks Yuki to kiss her one last time.]]
* [[spoiler:LittleMissAlmighty]]
* LongingLook: Her intoxicated expression as [[DeclarationOfProtection she promises to "protect" Yuki,]] also known as the "Yandere Trance", which has since reached MemeticMutation status.
* LoveMakesYouCrazy: Or was she already crazy to begin with?
* LoveMakesYouEvil: At times, the lengths at which she goes to show her admiration comes across as something that can only be thought of by a monster.
* MadLove: With Yukiteru. They are even [[Pantheon/{{Love}} the gods of the trope]].
* ManipulativeBitch: Throughout the series but is most impressive in episode 22 also including a BatmanGambit.
* MaskOfSanity: She pretends to be a normal, innocent girl, when she's actually an AxeCrazy sociopath.
* MeaningfulName: Her full name can be read as "my wife Yuno". Seeing as Yukiteru is named for Jupiter though, the kanji for Yuno's given name is really "Juno" read as Yuno (In central European languages the letter J is pronounced how Y is pronounced in English), so even more fittingly for Yukiteru, is the reading "my wife, Juno". Which is fitting, because Juno -- just like her Greek counterpart Hera -- gets mad at anyone who stole Jupiter's love, and would chase them down to the ends of the Earth. (Then there's the fact that Juno is a war goddess too.)
* MoodSwinger: She often shifts between lovesick, psychotic, and in rare occurances, cold and emotionless.
* MsFanservice: Throughout the whole series.
** Early on she and Yukiteru visit a pool where Yuno loses her swimsuit.
** Later on, Yuno [[spoiler: chains Yukiteru to a chair. This requires her to attend to all his, ahem, "duties".]] And on top of all that, she spends the entire time in nothing but a bra and panties.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: She believes that killing people is the best way to deal with problems.
* MurderTheHypotenuse: In her own words "Everyone who comes between me and Yukki can just die!" Probably comes with the whole {{Yandere}} thing.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Has a minor one [[spoiler:after being rebuked by her past self in the third world. Yuno actually starts shaking once she realizes how much she had changed when she lost all of her hope for the future, and seriously looks frightened at what she's become.]]
* NominalHero: Given how completely screwed up and outright evil the rest of the main cast are and the fact that she is one of the main characters, Yuno can be seen as heroic at times. However, all she cares about is protecting Yuki and although Yuki can maintain her somewhat stable, she is perfectly willing to do horrible things to those who get in their way.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Yuno will take any chance she gets to hug and kiss Yuki.
* NotGoodWithRejection: She doesn't take well Yuki rejecting her ''at all''.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Though there were earlier hints, FridgeLogic tells you she has been displaying this the entire story. [[spoiler: We find out she has played the survival game through before, so either she pretends not to know, or has [[LaserGuidedAmnesia repressed it]] completely.]]
* OdangoHair: [[spoiler:Her third world self]] at the beach in the Redial OVA.
* OfficialCouple: With Yuki.
* OffscreenTeleportation: She can appear out of nowhere. [[spoiler: Makes sense.]]
* OmnicidalManiac: If they aren't Yuki, she doesn't care what happens to them and she will kill anyone who gets in her way. [[spoiler:She is responsible for the destruction of the first world since she abandoned it after becoming its god.]]
* OnlyFriend: She considers herself the only friend Yukiteru needs.
* PantsFree: Yuno seems especially fond of this when there is an unconscious Yuki around.
* ParentalNeglect: Her father would work late hours and fail to notice her mother's escalating abuse.
* PoisonousFriend: She has killed, dismembered, schemed, plotted, manipulated and done a lot of shit to people with little to no regard just because of Yukiteru.
* PsychoSidekick: Yuki's batshit crazy sidekick.
* PutTheLaughterInSlaughter
* RapunzelHair: Down to her waist.
* [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech "The Reason We Suck" Speech]]: About the relationship between her and Yukiteru when she finally acknowledges its true nature. [[spoiler:While it did start off as that though, by the time she made this speech it had evolved into something more real.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Sports red eyes sometimes, showing her {{Yandere}} nature.
* RelationshipSabotage: One year prior to the series, she tried to do this to Yuki's relationship with Moe. However, Moe rejected Yuki's confession even without Yuno's interference.
* RoomFullOfCrazy: [[spoiler: An untouched room in Yuno's house that contains the corpses of her parents, and her second self who she murdered. Yuki finds it and ultimately changes the course of the game and the second world's timeline. Yuno eventually destroys the room and hides the evidence in a large pit behind her house.]]
* RoseHairedGirl: When she and Yuki are out of danger, she fits the sweet and romantic variety. But during her fights, she goes straight to the [[FieryRedhead strong and passionate]] variety.
* SatelliteLoveInterest: Played [[DeconstructedTrope remarkably straight with disturbing effect]]. Funnily enough, considering [[{{Yandere}} what she is]], it ends up being TropesAreNotBad. {{Justified|Trope}} in that Yuno [[spoiler:[[{{Deconstruction}} really has nothing in her life outside of Yukiteru]]]]. [[LivingEmotionalCrutch He is the only thing that keeps her relatively balanced most of the time.]]
* SchoolIdol: She's described as a model student. She gets excellent grades, everybody likes her, and all the boys are crazy about her. Except the one she's stalking, of course.
* [[spoiler:SelfMadeOrphan: Subverted in that they weren't technically her parents, and [[AccidentalMurder it wasn't what she desired. She even got to repent at the end]].]]
* SelfProclaimedLoveInterest: Ever since Yuki jokingly accepted her marriage proposal, Yuno believes they are engaged.
* SelfServingMemory: She usually represses and alters her memories in ways she feels more comfortable with to prevent herself from going completely insane.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Extremely Yukiteru-sexual.
* SlasherSmile: Played with. The constant MoeStare she sports on may as well be considered a SlasherSmile depending on context.
* SlipperySwimsuit: Loses her bikini top during the [[BeachEpisode Water-Park Episode]].
* TheSociopath: A very disturbing example. She loves Yuki to the extreme but EVERYONE other than Yuki is just pawns or getting in the way showing no remorse killing them.
* StalkerWithACrush: Yuno spends most of her time following Yuki. She also likes to break into his house and send him hundreds of emails over the course of an hour.
* StalkingIsLove: While Yuki ''is'' freaked out by Yuno's stalking, since she is his only true ally he must allow her to do it. Eventually, as he begins to go crazy, Yuki begins to accept her stalking more and more and at the end states that he fell in love with Yuno because "she was always by his side."
* StarCrossedLovers: Yuno and Yuki will never be together, because one of them needs to die to complete the Survival Game. [[spoiler:At the end, Yuno dies to ensure Yuki lives, but her memories are given to her third world self and she becomes god to be with Yuki.]]
* StepfordSmiler: Extremely Type C. She is usually brightly smiling, but this is just a mask for her craziness.
* StrawNihilist: To ''EVERYONE'' except Yukiteru.
* TakingYouWithMe: Tries this when fighting [[spoiler:Kurusu]] with the grenade Minene gave to Yuki, but it fails because the grenade turns out to be a flash grenade.
* TermsOfEndangerment: In the dub, she likes giving pet names to Yuki. Given her stalker nature, it comes off just as creepy as it is cute.
* {{Tsundere}}: Surprisingly, Yuno plays this trope with her unique style after [[spoiler:she decides to kill second world Yukki and tries to deny their love was real in the first place]].
--> '''Yuno:''' ''No, no no no! I've already abandoned [[spoiler: this]] Yukki!'' '''I don't like him or anything.''' Not only that, [[spoiler: I'm the one trying to kill him right now!]]
-->'''Yuno's phone screen:''' ''Yukki said that he'd even die for me. I'm so happy!''
* UhOhEyes: Makes these into an artform.
** GlowingEyesOfDoom: They sometimes appear like this.
* UncannyValleyGirl: She is seen as a SchoolIdol in her school, but she is actually a murderous AxCrazy {{Yandere}}.
* TheUnfettered: She will do anything for Yukiteru, ''[[MurderTheHypotenuse anything]]''.
* UngratefulBitch: She kills [[spoiler:Akise]] in spite of him sparing her life when he had the upper hand.
* UnholyMatrimony: With Yukiteru.
* UnskilledButStrong: Polar opposite of Yukki, in that her diary is almost completely useless except when paired with Yukki's, she is actually one of the strongest fighters. The only ones shown to best her in combat being [[spoiler: Sevenths and Akise.]]
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Yuno wasn't always such a psycho girl. When [[spoiler: Yukiteru and Minene go three years to the past]] it turns out that despite her abuse, she still was a hopeful and idealistic girl who [[spoiler: still believed she could be happy with her parents]].
* [[spoiler:VillainousBreakdown: Has one towards the end of the manga when Yuki refuses to kill her, prompting her to try to kill him, leap back in time again to restart the game and kill herself again. She fails, realising she cannot kill Yuki and seals him in an illusionary world to escape him. The final breakdown comes when she gets to see her third world self getting the love from her parents that she never got, and when Yuki escapes from the illusionary world.]]
* VillainProtagonist: She is Yukiteru's sidekick and main support, but she is also completely willing to kill anyone and through the series she does very cruel and nasty things to a lot of people.
** [[spoiler:Subverted in the later chapters when she becomes Yukiteru's enemy. She [[ZigZaggingTrope doubles back]] on that after she kills herself instead of him, though.]]
* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: VERY much so. She is willing to kill anyone who does as much as to get within 10 feet of Yuki.
* WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises: Made much more apparent in the anime during her crazier moments.
* WomanInBlack: Later in the series, she starts wearing a black lacy dress.
* [[spoiler:WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Yuno wants to keep the universe in an eternal time loop, forever replaying the Diary game, as this is the only way she believes she can stay with Yukiteru. She wants this so desperately because Yuki is probably one of the only kind people in her life, and her sole reason for living. Even if that means destroying entire universes/timelines to do it.]]
* {{Yandere}}: The [[{{Pantheon/Emotion}} Goddess]]. Bonus points for ''actually'' being named after the most yandere goddess, Juno.
** While this particular type of character isn't actually new, Yuno is without a doubt, if not the TropeMaker or [[TropeCodifier Codifier]], the example that is today the most well known and recognized - and serves, in fact, as the page image and the other insane tropes she embodies.
** A significant turning point in her CharacterDevelopment is when she realizes this and admits to Yuki that their relationship was one of convenience; she needed someone who would never (''could'' never) abandon her, and he needed someone to protect him. Their current relationship only works because she's ''extremely screwed up,'' and her acknowledgement of this makes Yuno a thorough {{Deconstruction}} of this character archetype. The archetype itself is never {{Reconstructed}} for [[UnfortunateImplications obvious reasons]], but her mental health improves and eventually she and Yuki get into a relationship, an ''actual'' relationship not based on fear. It's still a messed up one, and they're not exactly sane, but it's a start. Makes you wonder what would happen if they didn't live in a CrapsackWorld.
* YankTheDogsChain: Every time her relationship with Yuki looks like it's going somewhere, fate always barges in. [[spoiler:In the end, they finally defeat it]].
* ZettaiRyouiki: Later in the series, combined with a black lacy dress.

!!'''Takao Hiyama - The Third'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3rd_1181.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' Jin Domon (JP), Jason Douglas (EN)

A teacher at Yuki's school who's secretly a serial killer. His "Murder Diary" gives him detailed information on the location of his intended victim, making it a powerful weapon for ruthlessly pursuing his target. However, it offers little protection.
----
* AffablyEvil: He seems to be a fairly decent guy when he's teaching middle school class to his students. It's little wonder few suspected him of being a SerialKiller.
* ButtMonkey: [[BlackComedy Surprisingly often]]. He is the first diary owner to get killed, he kept killing himself several times over when [=MurMur=] first tried to give him his diary, he fell victim to one of Minene's amplified sound bombs in ''Mosaic'', appeared in a flashback chapter to be accidentally ([[CrossesTheLineTwice and comically]]) speared in the back by Yuno, and was given an electric shock in ''Paradox''. [[spoiler:In the penultimate chapter, he's pinned to the ground as he's apprehended by Twelfth, and he can be seen in the back of one of the final group shots, running from a few pursuers. In the anime, he's in jail.]] [=MurMur=] wasn't too surprised that he was the first to go.
* CoatHatMask: A practical version, as the costume he wears is not only bulletproof but somehow also ''bombproof''. [[spoiler: This comes in handy when Minene attacks him in ''Mosaic'', as she quickly learns that [[ThrowDownTheBomblet her usual battle tactics]] are useless against him.]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: We get to see [[ScreamingWoman one of his victims]] ''begging'' him not to kill her before cutting to a GoryDiscretionShot of her blood spattering the concrete. This lets us know what a twisted individual he is.
* EvilRedhead: His red hair is one of the few things his murder gear doesn't cover up.
* FriendlyEnemy: [[spoiler: with Twelfth, who's seen visiting him in prison in the Third World's epilogue.]]
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4B8wz9Qpb0 THIRD/Antares Cr302]]
* ImplacableMan: While he doesn't get a chance to show this off in his brief encounter with Yukiteru and Yuno, he proved himself to be this in ''Mosaic''/[[WholeEpisodeFlashback episode 10 in the anime]] [[spoiler: during his confrontation with Minene. He kept coming after her unrelentingly and wasn't even slowed down by the bombs exploding around him and by being shot at.]] Pity that [[AchillesHeel his diary is nowhere near as invulnerable as the man himself]].
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: The few times we see him without his mask.
* MalevolentMaskedMan: In his murder gear.
* MeaningfulName: The kanji in his last name, Hiyama, is read as "volcano". The Roman god in the Dii Consentes that he is associated with? Vulcan.
* SacrificialLamb: Killed off within the first chapters and first episode to demonstrate the rules and consequences of the survival game. Doubles as a RedShirt.
* SerialKiller: Though his experience when it came to killing didn't end up helping him much in the game.
* WeaponOfChoice: A machete.

-----

!!'''Keigo Kurusu - The Fourth'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Keigo.png
->'''Voiced by:''' Masahiko Tanaka (JP), Creator/RobertMcCollum (EN)

A police officer who wishes to stop the other crazy people with diaries. His "Case Diary" gives him information on all future crimes in his district as though he had already investigated them. He introduces himself early on as an ally to Yuki and Yuno, forming the Future Alliance.
----
* {{Badass}}: As most players in the survival game tend to be.
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler: He sets up Yuki and Yuno (at least the latter, anyway) to commit a crime by having both taken to the police station, having Yuki brought in for interrogation, and playing a game of RussianRoulette with him, knowing full well [[BerserkButton just how]] [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend Yuno]] [[AxCrazy would react]] to Yuki being in danger.]]
* [[spoiler: BulletProofVest: Worn as part of his [[BatmanGambit plan to incriminate Yukiteru and Yuno]]. He fully expects [[MurderIstheBestSolution Yuno to shoot at him]]. He didn't expect her to shoot him ''in the head'', blowing off his ear.]]
* TheCommissionerGordon: As soon as he meets Yuki and Yuno he tries to work with them to go after and identify the other future diary users.[[spoiler: Though this is subverted later on.]]
* [[spoiler:DeathEqualsRedemption: Apologizes for betraying Yukiteru before he disappears.]]
* DefectiveDetective: We find out that he's so busy with work he hasn't been able to spend time with his wife and son. [[spoiler: Not only that, but his son is in the hospital, leading to his FaceHeelTurn (assuming he wasn't [[EvilAllAlong plotting it from the very beginning]]).]]
* [[spoiler:DirtyCop: Uses the power of the police force to arrest Yukiteru and Yuno, then uses the [[BatmanGambit power of his Future Diary to frame them for the murder of the Tenth]].]]
* [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide: He kills himself by destroying his Diary.]]
* {{Expy}}: Resembles [[{{Evangelion}} Kaji]] but acts more like [[{{Evangelion}} Gendo]], especially after his [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn]].
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn: To save his dying son.]]
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyJtcTZkMQY Running For Your Life]]
* [[spoiler:LogicalWeakness: Kurusu's diary is the Case Diary, so as long as he's chasing down his suspects, he'll continue to get info on their next moves. Rather than trying to take him down directly, Minene goes to Nishijima and informs him that Kurusu was responsible for murdering Tenth and framing Yukki and Yuno. Once Nishijima arrests him, Kurusu loses the authority to continue his investigations, and thus his diary stops recording future events.]]
* [[spoiler:ManipulativeBastard: Implied to have been influencing events and manipulating others for a decent amount of time after his introduction, starting with letting Minene go free from the Omekata Temple.]]
* MeaningfulName: Kurusu's is a bit harder to pin down than the others, but the kanji in his last name "kuru" means "to come" and as Mercury was the messenger to the others gods, he is probably closest to Mercury in the Dii Consentes.
* PassingTheTorch: [[spoiler: In the anime, Kurusu leaves a record of the survival game to Nishijima, including the defunct diaries of the dead owners.]]
* PermaStubble: Subtle but there, going with his normal "detective" appearance.
* RussianRoulette: plays a game of this with [[spoiler: Yukiteru]], in order to provoke [[spoiler: [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend Yuno]]]] to attack him.
* [[spoiler:ScarsAreForever: He gets his ear shot off by Yuno.]]
* SmokingIsCool: As most detectives in anime are prone to.
* SweetTooth: Downs his coffee with a lot of sugar cubes.
* [[spoiler:[[TakeCareOfTheKids Take Care of My Son]]: Before eliminating himself he asks Minene to look after his son.]]
* [[spoiler:WellIntentionedExtremist: He betrays Yukiteru and Yuno in order to save his son.]]
* [[spoiler:WhatCouldHaveBeen: In-universe example. According to Deus he was supposed to be among one of the final players of the game and not supposed to find out about his son's illness until much later. It turns out that his earlier demise was actually orchestrated by [=MurMur=].]]

!! '''Reisuke Houjou - The Fifth'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Reisuke.png
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AsamiSanada (JP), Lindsay Seidel (EN)

A 4-year-old boy who is left an orphan in the same incident that led to the Sixth's death. He is eager to prove himself to be a "super elite". His "Hyper Vision Diary" is a coloring book that displays pictures and summaries of three major events each day. It gives him plenty of time to plan his daily strategy, but it's not too helpful for predicting the immediate future.
----
* [[spoiler: AbusiveParents[=/=]ParentalNeglect: We see that Reisuke's parents weren't a happy family like we were made to believe. His parents were often fighting and he would be left in the corner of the room by himself. Now whether this contributed to his creepy tendencies is the series is up to interpretation, but one thing is for certain. He was seriously happy being taken care of by Yuki's mother.]]
** [[spoiler: Though they do have some moments of niceness as they were gracious enough to buy him his puppets.]]
** [[spoiler: Actually, in the third world where Reisuke's parents didn't join the cult, and therefore weren't fighting all the time, Reisuke's ends up as a normal child, so his parents are the cause of his creepy tendencies.]]
* BlushSticker: Has permanent ones on his cheeks.
* [[spoiler:CheerfulChild: In ''Paradox'', since his parents aren't killed.]]
** [[spoiler:In the third world for the same reasons and with the both of them being better parents.]]
* CreepyChild: A little boy with a very diabolical mind.
* CuteAndPsycho: A cute little 4-year-old boy who enjoys talking to his hand puppets, drawing pictures, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick and using his magical coloring book to commit murders.]]
* EnfanteTerrible: An adorable 4-year-old who uses his magic picture diary to adorably kill people.
* EvilOrphan: Since Yuno killed his parents.
* EvilRedhead: His hair is red and he is quite creepy.
* InfantImmortality: Played with, since as a player in the survival game to become god he has a chance of becoming a more literal example of this but if he doesn't win he would be a subversion.
* [[spoiler: GoOutWithASmile ''and'' GracefulLoser: After asking Yuno what will she do when she and Yukki face each other, Reisuke tells her to win The Game and dies smiling. His Diary reflects his last thoughts: "Hojou Reisuke is killed by Gasai Yuno. DEAD END. . . But I'm very happy!"]]
* HandPuppet: He carries a pair of hand puppets around with him, which he talks to as though they were real.
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ozxQqbk5F4 Perfect Trap]]
* KidSidekick: [[spoiler: Third World Reisuke to Akise in the Redial manga.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: Chiptunes.
* MeaningfulName: "Houjou" is written as "fertility". He corresponds with Ceres in the Dii Consentes.
* NiceHat
* NightmareFuelColoringBook: His Future Diary is a coloring book that shows him how to commit murder.
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler:He seriously enjoyed his time at Yuki's place (despite how twisted he viewed it as) and refused to put Yuki's mom in danger of his hide and seek game.]]
* {{Revenge}}:
** Well, Yuno inadvertently did [[YouKilledMyFather kill his parents]].
** Actually, subverted. He ''considers'' that fact, but then dismisses it with a who cares about that.
** Double subverted in ''Mosaic'' where he reveals that he really does love his parents despite what happens.
* SlasherSmile: A master of this. Particularly in the anime's second opening.
* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: Comes with being an unstable 4 year old who is in a game that revolves around killing people.
* WeakButSkilled: His diary only shows three entries for the day during the morning, noon, and night. Despite that, it has a certain advantage of giving Reisuke all three entries at the same time, which allows him ample time to carefully plot his next move, as well as some pictures drawn by him, giving him some source material other than writing.
* {{Yandere}}: An odd-version of this archetype. Despite his attempts of trying to kill Yuno, he quickly grows fond of her during his stay at Yuki's home. By the time he dies, his diary tells us that he's happy that Yuno killed him.

->'''Voiced by:''' EriSendai (JP), Kate Bristol (EN)

The priestess for the Omekata cult, who supposedly possesses clairvoyant powers. She has been imprisoned in the cult's temple her entire life because of her poor eyesight. Her parents were the founders of the cult, and after their deaths [[spoiler:(or better said, their murders)]] she became its {{leader}} of sorts. Her "Clairvoyant Diary" is a scroll that records what every worshipper in the cult sees, giving her much greater range than most other Diary Holders. While it provides a large amount of information, the scroll is also cumbersome and slow to use, making it difficult for her to react immediately to changes.
----
* AdaptationDyeJob: Her red eyes in the manga changed to purple in the anime.
* [[spoiler:AnArmAndALeg: Yuno chops off her left hand, therefore she can't handle the heavy "Clairvoyant Diary" and is open for Yukki's definitive attack with his darts.]]
* AttemptedRape: [[spoiler:Tsubaki orders the cult members to strip and gang-rape the captive Yuno, in an attempt to lure the escaped Yukiteru out. He pulls a BigDamnHeroes and stops her.]]
* [[spoiler:BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil]]
* BerserkerTears: [[spoiler:Tsubaki cries these when her diary is destroyed in the manga right after she sees her old handball.]]
* [[spoiler:BitchInSheepsClothing: She appears a YamatoNadeshiko at first, but she is actually a ManipulativeBitch.]]
* BlindSeer: [[spoiler:It's revealed to be a lie.]]
* BrokenBird: [[spoiler: Losing her parents and being repeatedly gang raped has left her as an angry and sour girl who wants to destroy the world.]]
* ChekhovsGun: [[spoiler:Yukiteru finds her lost handball and throws it in the air, foiling the powers of her diary and letting him destroy it, killing Tsubaki.]]
* {{Clairvoyance}}: [[spoiler:Her clairvoyant powers are actually a lie made up by her parents.]]
* [[spoiler:CryForTheDevil: After learning her backstory.]]
* [[spoiler:CuteAndPsycho: She seems at first to be a YamatoNadeshiko, but then we see that her backstory of orphanhood and sexual slavery drove her completely ''insane''.]]
* [[spoiler:DecoyDamsel: She plays the part ''[[BitchInSheepsClothing really]]'' well.]]
* DespairEventHorizon: Crossed in her BackStory, after [[spoiler: her TragicKeepsake disappears, thus she has no way to keep her sanity in between all of the abuse the Omekatas subject her to]].
* [[spoiler:EvilOrphan: After her parents were killed and she went mad from being used as a SexSlave for the Omekata Cult.]]
* FanDisservice: [[spoiler:How do we find out about her SexSlave deal? Through a flashback that starts with a barely pubescent Tsubaki lying naked on the floor, shivering and terrified, right before she's gang-raped by the men of the Omekata cult.]]
* GlassCannon: The "Clairvoyant Diary". She can use it to record what her cult members see and thus has a huge range, but it's very slow and hard to use. It also presents the largest target, [[spoiler:which is problematic when a single hit from one of Yukki's darts is enough to count it as destroyed.]]
* GoLookAtTheDistraction: [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Yuki]] takes advantage of the fact [[spoiler:her diary shows what her followers are looking at by throwing a ball then throwing a dart to destroy her diary when they're all looking the other way]].
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: She pulls out a pipe and smokes on it [[spoiler: when Yuno falls victim to a DistressBall right after killing the Twelfth and this allows her to her trap them, Kurusu and Minene inside the Omekata temple]].
* HairDecorations: Her red ribbon.
* HimeCut: Showing her status as a {{miko}} and YamatoNadeshiko looks.
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c461iKFAkaE Cries Of Avici (6)]]
* [[spoiler:ManipulativeBitch: Tries to manipulate Yukki, Yuno, Kurusu, Minene, and Hirasaka for her own benefit.]]
* [[spoiler:MaskOfSanity: It doesn't take too long for it to slip though.]]
* MeaningfulName: A nod to the Roman goddess Proserpina, the goddess of springtime. She has the kanji (春) for springtime in her name, and further connecting to Proserpina by both being beautiful women who spend much of their time hidden from the world. (Though in Proserpina's case, there's quite the AlternativeCharacterInterpretation on whether she wants to be there or not... in Tsubaki's case [[spoiler: she DOESN'T.]])
* {{Miko}}: [[spoiler:Horrendously subverted in the main storyline, but [[TheMessiah played straight]] in ''Paradox'' and the AlternateTimeline.]]
* [[spoiler:ObfuscatingStupidity: This should have been really obvious.]]
* [[spoiler: OmnicidalManiac: Why she wants to become god.]]
* OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness: The leader.
* PeekABangs: Her right eye is almost always covered by her hair.
* PurpleEyes: Fitting her role as a "{{Seer}}".
* [[spoiler:RapeAsBackstory: After her parents (and the Omekata founders) were killed, Tsubaki was imprisoned and used as a SexSlave by the cult while making her "pose" as the leaderess.]]
* [[spoiler:RapeLeadsToInsanity: Being Omekata cult's SexSlave caused her to lose her mind.]]
* RapunzelHair: Long black hair reaching her hips. Her hair is all the way down to her feet [[http://www.future-diary.tv/chara/6th.html in the anime]].
* [[spoiler:ReligionOfEvil: The Omekata cult that she belongs to or rather, is imprisoned by. The AlternateTimeline shows them as a more benevolent group, though. It helps that the Kasuganos were still alive to lead it well.]]
** [[spoiler:Even more tragic is the fact that in ''Paradox'' it's revealed that her parents were actually about to disband the cult [[GiveHimANormalLife in order to let Tsubaki lead a normal life.]] However, the second-in-command Funatsu wasn't having any of that so he offed Tsubaki's parents before they could do so, trapping her in the cult as a sex slave.]]
** [[spoiler: Redial has the cult be reformed into a good religion and in the Redial manga it becomes the [[JusticeWillPrevail Cult of Justice]] lead by her and Yomotsu.]]
* [[spoiler:SexSlave: The Omekata cult keeps her prisioner as their sex toy.]]
* [[spoiler:StalkerWithACrush: The third world's Tsubaki is this to Kousaka in the Redial OVA. She has her cult go out and lure him to her, and then practically throws herself at him. He was ''all'' for it.]]
* [[spoiler: TakeThatKiss: Pulls one on Yukiteru right after trapping him, Yuno and others. Yuno reacts as well as expected.]]
* TearsOfRemorse: In the anime [[spoiler:right before her death]].
* TragicKeepsake: A handball given to her by her deceased mother. [[spoiler:It gets lost later, and Tsubaki ''definitely'' loses it soon afterwards.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Surprisingly, shows shades of this towards Akise in ''Paradox''.
* [[spoiler:UsedToBeASweetKid: As shown by her backstory before her parents were killed.]]
* [[spoiler: WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: She wants to become god so she can destroy the world that has made her suffer so much.]]
* YamatoNadeshiko: A priestess with a HimeCut looks the part. [[spoiler:She does really have this personality in ''Paradox''.]]
** [[spoiler: And in chapter 58 of the manga, we get to see how Tsubaki would've been like if her parents weren't murdered. She fits here ''to a T'', specially in regards to the will of iron.]]

[[folder:Diary Holders: 7-12]]

!!'''Marco Ikusaba and Ai Mikami - The Seventh'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/154839_6244.jpg
[[quoteright:221:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aimikami_2396.jpg]]

->'''Voiced by:''' TomokazuSeki (Marco - JP), Creator/NatsukoKuwatani (Ai - JP), Brad Hawkins (Marco - EN), JamieMarchi (Ai - EN)

A pair of orphans in love with each other. Their "Exchange Diary" is actually two cell phones that report each other's immediate future. The couple displays excellent teamwork as they use their diaries to cover each other's weaknesses.
----------------
[[AC:Both]]
* AdaptationExpansion: The anime expands more on their time in high school together rather than just the two flashback scenes in the manga in the tower where Marco and Ai first meet and where they decide to get married. [[spoiler:The anime added in a rather dark story in which Ai is set up by her female classmates to be gang raped by a group of boys, with Marco finding her and her captors afterward. He then proceeds to beat down the group and even manages to kill one of her rapists. They later go the tower where Marco is almost DrivenToSuicide over not being able to protect Ai, only to be stopped by Ai herself, who begs him not to leave her alone. It helps to add to his reason for not leaving Ai behind in the tower when it started to collapse.]]
* [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl Always Save Your Love Interest]]
* [[AntiVillain Anti-Villains]]
* [[spoiler:BabiesEverAfter: In the third world, where Ai is pregnant.]]
* BattleCouple: Arguably a truer one than Yuki and Yuno's.
* BondingOverMissingParents: The orphan Marco first met Ai the day her parents abandoned her and they've been close ever since.
* BondVillainStupidity: [[spoiler:They were the only diary owners who managed to both beat up Yukiteru and Yuno and take away their diaries during their first confrontation. Having the two at their mercy, they made them bring Yukiteru's father (secretly working for Eleventh) to them. After they got their hands on Yukiteru's dad, Marco stated that they didn't have any reason to keep Yukiteru and Yuno alive anymore. Instead of destroying their diaries that very moment... Marco and Ai didn't, and even challenged Yukiteru and Yuno to a rematch that resulted in the two recovering their diaries. Marco even mentioned that he could have simply destroyed the diaries, but that would be too easy and boring. To her credit, after that happened Ai did admit that she and Marco should have simply destroyed the diaries.]]
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: They first met when they were children after Ai was abandoned by her parents and grew up together in Eighth's orphanage.
* CoolShades: Both are seen wearing matching sunglasses on occasion.
* DeclarationOfProtection: They have sworn to protect each other.
* {{Foil}}[=/=]ShadowArchetype: Towards Yukiteru and Yuno, since Marco and Ai are a couple who love each other in a much more genuine and healthy way.
* GodCouple: Their goal in the game.
* [[spoiler:{{Graceful Loser}}s: When it becomes obvious that they are going to die, they don't take Yukiteru and Yuno down with them and even give them their last parachute, making it possible for the two to escape from Sakurami Tower. Even though they killed each other's lover, they held no grudge against them for it and recognized that it was simply part of the game.]]
* HappilyMarried: They get married at the Sakurami Tower just before their second encounter with Yuki and Yuno.
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJAlHTKwmxw 7th Heaven]]
* {{Love Freak}}s: They're always talking about ThePowerOfLove.
* MeaningfulName: For ''both'' of them. Marco's first name comes from "Mars", the Roman god of war, and his last name's kanji is read as "battlefield", sealing the comparison. Ai's name indirectly references Venus, as her first name means "love" while her last name contains the kanji for "beauty" and "god", all strongly pointing to Venus as a reference. If that wasn't enough, Mars and Venus were also well known in the myths for their love affair.
** Their Child Diaries take the comparisons one step further, with Marco's being a diary that predicts his opponent's next fighting move, so he can counter it, and Ai's making predictions about all the men that she wants to flirt with in the future.
* MistakenForCheating: A RunningGag with this pair.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Couple]]: Out of all the diary owners, Marco and Ai seem the sanest, although this is shared with Kamado and Yuki before his BadAss upgrade.
* ThePowerOfLove: They insist that this is why they win their fights.
* [[spoiler:TogetherInDeath: They die together during the collapse of the Sakurami Tower.]]
* VillainousValour: They prove themselves to be very devoted to one another, [[{{Foil}} even more so than Yuki and Yuno]].
* WouldNotShootACivilian: When Yuki's friends are caught in the crossfire, they save their lives and treat their wounds.
[[AC:Marco]]
* BerserkButton: [[NonActionGuy Non-Action Guys]]
* BoisterousBruiser: He's HotBlooded, loud and always ready for a fight.
* BruiserWithASoftCenter
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Brown hair and eyes.
* DontYouDarePityMe: [[spoiler:Tells Yukiteru not to look at him and Ai with pity after being defeated.]]
* EightiesHair: Marco sports a long, curled perm.
* EmotionalBruiser
* HotBlooded: Very loud and passionate man.
* [[spoiler:ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Marco ended up impaled with a metal pipe during Sevenths' second battle with Yukiteru and Yuno. Though it probably wasn't this but rather the collapse of the Sakurami Tower that killed him.]]
* [[spoiler:InterruptedSuicide: In his backstory in the anime.]]
* LightningBruiser: When sufficiently angered, Marco has proven himself to be a virtually unstoppable force in combat. In his final appearance in the Second World, he is revealed to possess strength that borders on monstrous levels when he lifts several tons of rubble in order to reach a dying Ai.
* ManInWhite: His preferred outfit.
* ManlyTears: In his backstory in the anime and [[spoiler:when he and Ai die]].
* MrFanservice: Shows his well tone chest in his introduction, providing this effect.
* RandomSmokingScene: From time to time.
* SmokingIsCool
* WhatTheHellHero: Calls Yukiteru out about how he lets Yuno do all the fighting while he just stays hidden behind her.
* YouAreWorthHell: [[spoiler:Marco decides to stay with Ai in the collapsing tower instead of escaping alone.]]

[[AC:Ai]]
* ActionGirl
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:Ai appeared first, as one of Tsubaki's followers.]]
* DesignatedGirlFight: Against Yuno, though Marco [[BattleCouple joins in]] soon after.
* KnifeNut: Ai prefers throwing knives.
* MsFanservice: She fully exposes her midriff with a very loose jacket.
* PeekABangs: In her first appearance [[spoiler: as a spy infiltrating Sixth's hideout]], she soon changes her looks on her proper introduction.
* PurpleEyes
* [[spoiler:RapeAsBackstory: In the anime.]]
* SympathyForTheDevil: [[spoiler:Shows great concern for the Sixth while undercover.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Ai's hair is blue.

!!'''Kamado Ueshita - The Eighth'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ueshita_2195.png
->'''Voiced by:''' HiromiKonno (JP), Creator/MonicaRial (EN)

A very...uniquely shaped woman who runs an orphanage. Her "Propagation Diary" is actually a server that can be accessed by the people she allows, giving each person their own "Child Diary" that can predict the future in various ways. She hasn't shown much interest in winning the game, but the children at her orphanage willingly fight to protect her by eliminating the other Diary Holders.
----
* AntiVillain: She's actually a lot nicer and more sympathetic than the protagonists let alone the other antagonists. The only reason she's a "villain" is because she's a diary holder and the [[EvilVersusEvil morality of the series]], and even then she's only fighting because her orphanage's kids don't want to see her die.
* ApronMatron: Her outfit.
* BlushSticker: Default look.
* CatSmile: Her default expression.
* HappilyMarried: To [[spoiler: John Balks]] in the Redial manga.
* HarmlessVillain: She doesn't want to win the game, and relatively speaking she hasn't shown herself to be nearly as crazy or murderous as the other Diary Holders.
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGOzbikR_o8 LOST CHILDREN]]
* MeaningfulName: Kamado can mean "hearth", which is one of the domains that Vesta was goddess over. "Ueshita" sounds like "Vesta" (Ueshita/Weshita/Wesuta). Just as well, Ueshita runs an OrphanageOfLove and gives a place for orphans to stay, and Vesta was also the goddess of family and the home.
* NeutralFemale: Battle and personality wise, she prefers to have others fight for her, hence the Apprentice Diaries and only wants not to be bothered as she takes care of her kids.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: ...to say the least.
* [[spoiler:ObiWanMoment: Before dying, she asks Yuki to create a new world where children can live without worries.]]
* OnlySaneWoman: Comes across as this by the time Yuki snaps.
* OrphanageOfLove: Presumably she runs one, given how the children are willing to die for her sake.
* ShipTease: Has a bit of it with John Balks. [[spoiler:In the last episode, they are unambiguously shown to be a couple in the third world.]]
* SuperEmpowering: She's never shown using her own diary to predict the future, but she can give out Child Diaries.
* SuperpowerLottery: As Eleventh figures out, since she can provide a near infinite amount of diaries to possible wielders so she'll never have to fight, and those diaries can be easily replaced without the wielder dying like a natural Diary user. [[spoiler:He even plans to gain omnipotence [[note]]since his Diary can read all the other Diary users' predictions[[/note]] combined with this power, providing him with near infinite army. Eighth on the other hand, does not show interest in this potential.]]
* [[spoiler:TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth]]: [[spoiler:Was hands down, the nicest Diary Holder. When killed, she asks Yuki to create a good world, not even holding a grudge against him.]]
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: No one in-verse except [=MurMur=] seem to be bothered at her appearance.
* WhatDoesSheSeeInHim: Her orphans' reactions to her going out with [[spoiler:the Mayor in the third world]].


-----

!!'''Minene Uryu - The Ninth'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Uryu_9526.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' MaiAizawa (JP), Creator/EmilyNeves (EN)

A terrorist bomber raging against the world. Her "Escape Diary" explores each possible option and recommends the best course of action to escape danger, making it very helpful for avoiding death. It will still display a DEAD END when things are stacked too heavily against her, though.
----
* ActionBomb: Her "heart bomb" will explode as soon as her heart stops.
* ActionFashionista: Played with, her initial outfit is very gothic lolita gimmicky, but post HeelFaceTurn she wears far more darker outfits that make her look far more impressive. She even makes a nurse outfit look awesome.
* AdaptationExpansion: The anime imports parts of her ''Mosiac'' side-story.
* AntiHero: Compared to Yuki's ActualPacifist way of things, she's willing to do anything to get victory often in [[IncrediblyLamePun explosive ways]].
** {{Nominal Hero}}ine: Originally.
** {{Unscrupulous Hero}}ine: After her HeelFaceTurn.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: Her name refers to both the goddess of knowledge and the god of the sea in the Roman mythos.
* [[spoiler:BabiesEverAfter: With third world Masumi. As a bonus, her babies (most likely twins) have super powers due to her receiving some of Deus' powers.]]
* {{Badass}}: The series' most indisputable example. She has the honor of being the only diary holder besides Yukiteru and Yuno, who confronted the most diary users in battle and comes out alive.
** BadassAdorable: She has her moments. Defeating Hiyama in a cosplay dress counts.
** BadassAndChildDuo: Strikes this with Yukiteru [[spoiler:especially during the FinalBattle]].
** BadassBiker[=/=]BikerBabe: In her first appearance, she drives a motorcycle to escape.
** BadassBoast: Known to give these.
** BadassInDistress: When briefly captured by the Twelfth.
** BadassLongRobe: She wears a black robe after [[spoiler:returning with Deus' powers]].
** [[spoiler:BadassTransplant: The white arm that Deus' power gave her.]]
** HandicappedBadass: She loses her left eye [[spoiler: and later her right hand]] yet still remains {{Badass}} to the end.
** HeartbrokenBadass: After [[spoiler:Nishijima dies protecting her]].
** [[spoiler:RetiredBadass: In the series finale.]]
** TookALevelInBadass: When you think Minene is already badass enough, wait to see her [[spoiler:return with half of God's powers]].
* BareYourMidriff: In her usual outfit.
* TheBaroness: Post HeelFaceTurn.
* [[spoiler: BetterToDieThanBeKilled: She decides to break her own diary instead of letting her wounds kill her. [[SubvertedTrope But Deus saves her and she comes back.]]]]
* BigOlEyebrows: More noticeable in the anime; they're particularly thick.
* BigSisterMentor: To Yukiteru.
* BloodKnight: Downplayed. While she initially was all for violence, at the end of the story she [[spoiler: retires with Nishijima, having given up the terrorist life.]]
* BoobsOfSteel: When she's undressed post HeelFaceTurn, she's far more well-endowed than initially implied.
* BrokenBird: She's cynical and jaded as a result of her DarkAndTroubledPast and is usually dealing with emotional traumas.
* ByronicHero: Morally neutral? Check. Largely concerned with personal interests? Check. Disrespect of common authority? Check. Defined by conflict, inner and outer? Definitely. Guilty of crimes? Definitely. Attractive? Oh yeah. An exile? Definitely. Intelligent? Check. Cynical and self-destructive? Definitely.
* [[spoiler:ChangedMyMindKid: When Yukiteru and Yuno are stuck trying to get into a vault that's guarding Eleventh, deciding to avenge Nishijima instead. She changes her mind again to perform a HeroicSacrifice.]]
* CleavageWindow: In her usual outfit.
* CoolBigSis: [[CharacterDevelopment Becomes]] [[LikeBrotherAndSister like one]] [[IntergenerationalFriendship to Yukiteru]] [[FireForgedFriends eventually]].
* CoolBike: Owns at least two.
* {{Cosplay}}: She insists it's "for the atmosphere".
* CrazySurvivalist: Proven in her very first appearance by pulling a motorcycle out of {{hammerspace}} to make her escape. And enhanced by her Escape Diary, of course, which tells her just what crazy preparations to make.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Purple hair and eyes.
* CynicismCatalyst: Losing her parents in a religious struggle in the middle east and having to fend for herself in a place where she didn't even know the language made Minene the cynical terrorist she is today.
* DarkActionGirl: She's ruthless, sociopathic and usually dresses in dark clothes. However, she ends up [[HeelFaceTurn coming around, for the most part.]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Minene lost her parents when she was eight during a conflict caused by religious extremists and was forced to live a brutal life as a streetrat. As a result, Minene developed a hatred towards God and religion as a whole.
* DarkIsEvil: Appearance-wise, although her name's [[MeaningfulName meanings]] have connotations with [[LightIsNotGood light]].
* DatingCatwoman: Has this with Nishijima, [[spoiler: they eventually get married in the third world.]]
* DeadManSwitch: Uses one of these when she holds up a school, derailing an attempt to snipe her because it's attached to a bomb.
* DeadpanSnarker: Especially post HeelFaceTurn.
* DeadPersonImpersonation: She killed a rookie police officer and took her place so she could get close to her target.
* DeceasedParentsAreTheBest: She lost her parents in a religious struggle. We never really see Minene's fond memories of them, but it appears they were GoodParents who loved her and she does remember them fondly one moment before [[spoiler:trying to sacrifice herself]].
* DefrostingIceQueen: She slowly becomes much more heroic as the game goes on.
* {{Determinator}}: One of the longest lasting players in the survival game because she refuses to lie down and die. [[spoiler:Deus picked her to ensure the game ran its course smoothly ''for a reason''.]]
* DisabledLoveInterest: She develops a relationship with Nishijima in spite of losing her left eye [[spoiler:and later her right hand]].
* DivineIntervention: Experienced this in the first chapter of ''Mosaic'' [[spoiler:and later on in the main story]].
* ElegantGothicLolita: She prefers this style of dress at first, she drops it for a more subtle wear.
* EscapeArtist: She has the "Escape Diary", after all.
* [[spoiler:EvilParentsWantGoodKids: For all of Minene's terrorism, she seems to make a decent stay-at-home mom.]]
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: Has shoulder-length hair in the ''Redial'' OVA.
* {{Expy}}: A combination of Misato from ''{{Evangelion}}'', Revy from ''BlackLagoon'', Canaan from the [[{{Canaan}} series of the same name]], and Riddick from ''Film/TheChroniclesOfRiddick'', combining the looks and in partnership with Yukiteru, who is Shinji's and Rock's expy, from the former two, the personality and behavior from Revy, the region of origin from Canaan, and the soft spot for children and weapons proficiency from Riddick.
* EyepatchOfPower: Which came after being subjected to EyeScream [[spoiler: by the Twelfth]].
* FireForgedFriends: With Yukiteru, [[spoiler:later referring to him by his first name]].
* [[spoiler:{{Flight}}: One of the powers that Deus bequeathed her with.]]
* FriendToAllChildren: With the exception of her school bombing early in the story (which she only targeted in the first place to lure out Fourth, since she only ever targets religious places/figures), she subtly displays traits of this. First, after their rough initial meeting, she becomes friendlier towards Yukiteru and takes on more of a mentor role towards him in later story arcs. She also acts friendly with and shows good will towards Fifth, going to great lengths to return his hand puppets when he was being stubborn. And while she is hiding undercover as a nurse, she mentions to Akise that she doesn't mind talking to and looking after the children in the hospital. She later also tries to scare Yukiteru's classmates out of helping her stop Eleventh for fear of their safety (even though they ended up helping her anyways). [[spoiler:Probably hinting that she wouldn't make a bad mother in the future.]]
** More like [[ZigZaggedTrope zig-zagged]]. She has no excuses for her bombing of the school other than to fulfill her selfish objectives. She also kills the children without compunctions and doesn't even show a hint of regret later on.
* GadgeteerGenius: Her bombs are all hand made.
* GodivaHair: When captured by the Twelfth, who strips and chains her to a wall [[spoiler: after tearing out her left eye]].
* [[spoiler:GoldAndWhiteAreDivine: In addition to the white arm that Deus' power gave her, the anime also gives her a golden eyepatch.]]
* GoodIsNotNice: Even after her HeelFaceTurn, she's still a [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold jerk, but she looks out for Yuki throughout the game]].
* GracefulLoser: She never seems to be angry at Yuki for stabbing out her eye [[spoiler: until he uses Nishijima as bait, which ends up killing him. Even after Yuki shoots her, she decides to help him out by trying to bomb the vault door. When she's saved by Deus, she once again comes to his assistance.]]
* GuileHeroine: Relies on her strategic planning and trickery, and constantly has a means of escape in case her plan falls through.
* TheGunslinger: While she prefers the grenade, she's no slouch with a gun.
* [[spoiler:HappilyMarried: To third world Nishijima in the DistantFinale. Much to the chagrin of her husband, he still has to catch and arrest her third world self, who is still a terrorist.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: She is introduced [[WouldHurtAChild blowing up half of a school full of innocent children]] just so that she can kill Yuki. After a lot of CharacterDevelopment, she becomes a more heroic character and Yuki's ally and mentor of-sorts.
* HiddenDepths: She has self-relience issues and has an honorable side to her than her initial portrayal suggests.
* HiddenHeartOfGold: Towards Yuki.
* HollywoodAtheist: Before the survival game started. In the first chapter of ''Mosaic'' she states that there is no God and that praying to him and relying on his help in life is stupid. It's also strongly implied that she became atheist because she lost her parents as a child; as she reveals her atheism a flashback is shown to her crying next to the bodies of her parents. At the end of that chapter she meets the God of her universe and becomes NayTheist instead.
* HospitalHottie: When she disguised herself as a nurse.
* [[spoiler:[[HotGod Hot Demigoddess]]: After being given half of Deus's powers.]]
* [[spoiler:{{Housewife}}: She becomes a stay-at-home mom after marrying third world Nishijima.]]
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sqDfzba1QU Reject]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSsR_TDQ4OQ Brilliant Imitation]].
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Yukiteru.
* IWasJustPassingThrough: Passes off several of her kind actions as this, like rescuing Yukiteru and Yuno from Reisuke's gas trap [[spoiler:and informing Kurusu of his son's condition when she told Yukiteru that she was just going to wander off and do her own thing in the third world.]]
* [[spoiler:KarmaHoudini: Her body-count probably numbers in hundreds if not thousands, seeing as before the main story started she attacked not only clergymen, but also religious facilities; Twelfth does mention in ''Mosaic'' that she killed a lot of believers in her attacks. She also murdered an innocent rookie detective to steal her identity in ''Mosaic'', and there's also her school bombing early in the main story. As the second world where she did all of this ultimately gets destroyed, she ends up getting away with this, escaping from the second world and presumably living HappilyEverAfter with Nishijima in the third world. And on top of that, according to ''Redial'', she got to ''keep her God powers'', since it shows her flying in the sky with her kids.]]
* KillTheGod: Her eventual goal once she wins the game. [[spoiler:Though she wouldn't have to work hard on that goal since Deus is dying anyways. What's more, it's lightly hinted that when Deus transferred half of his remaining power to Minene, it actually sped up his coming death, leading to the world to start collapsing earlier than was expected. [[FromACertainPointOfView She ended up achieving her goal, in a way.]]]]
* LickedByTheDog: She seems to be liked by a group of wild squirrels which follow her around.
* LoveRedeems: Nishijima was major motivation for her HeelFaceTurn. At the end, [[spoiler:she gives up terrorism to marry third world Nishijima]].
* [[spoiler:LoveTranscendsSpacetime: Nishijima's love for her carries over to the third world where, he goes to the final battle he finds, recognizes her and [[HaveWeMet wonders if they met]]. [[BabiesEverAfter Two years later they get married and have kids together]].]]
* MadBomber: She bombs churches and assassinates religious figures.
* MasterOfDisguise: She is able to fool people even if she's just wearing nurse outfit.
* MeaningfulName: As it turns out, Minene is named for ''two'' gods, who are usually paired together in the Dii Consentes.
** Her first name, Minene, is an obvious corruption of Minerva the goddess of battle strategy.
** Her last name also contains the kanji for rain 雨 (''ame''), which corresponds to Neptune who is the god patron of horses for some reason, though in her case [[MyHorseIsAMotorbike her horses are motorbikes]].
* MegaTwintails:
** In her initial appearances. She leaves her hair down afterwards though.
** Their volume is somewhat HandWaved by ''Mosaic'' explaining that [=MurMur=] was the one altering her hair.
* MsFanservice: Especially post HeelFaceTurn.
* NayTheist: She's fighting to gain the powers of a god, yet refuses to acknowledge the very god who gave her the Diary.
* [[spoiler:NeverFoundTheBody: [[RedHerring We were led to believe]] that her body was completely obliterated by her heart bomb in the bank vault. It was later revealed that Deus had secretly pulled her out to safety just before the bomb even exploded, and in addition the anime shows that the bomb explosion was caused by a PortalCut when her bomb was suddenly disconnected from her after she was transported to safety.]]
* NobleDemon: She is a terrorist and not above blowing up a middle school full of kids, but she has her own honorable side.
* NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow: ''Damn'', where to begin? [[spoiler: Minene already had her eye pierced in her introduction, but as soon as the story starts focusing on her again, she takes some punishment. She narrowly survives a claymore that ends up blowing off her hand and causes her to lose a lot of blood, then after chasing Yukiteru down she manages to corner him only hesitate and give him the opportunity to shoot her in the abdomen, and she bleeds out quite a lot on the floor. Then after Yukiteru and Yuno leave her for dead to try to deal with Eleventh, Minene managed to get back up and walks up behind them to offer to sacrifice herself so they can get inside the safe. It takes her to break her own diary before she actually dies. And Deus even saves her from that, too. Oh yeah, and the new arm that she gets via his powers? Ripped off by [=MurMur=]. And even after that she still survives.]]
* NoSocialSkills: She doesn't know what exactly marriage is, at least.
* NotSoDifferent: Surprisingly, she says this to Yukiteru. When she saw him running through her minefield, choking on poisonous gas, or even the look on his face [[spoiler:when he lost his parents]], she was reminded of her own weakness in her childhood, and admits that she had a soft spot for him.
** She also gets a bit of this with the Fifth in ''Mosaic'' when she asks if he's going to take revenge for his parents. It's probably why she was so intent on [[EscalatingChase returning his dolls]].
* [[spoiler:ObiWanMoment: And a TearJerker to boot.]]
* OrphansOrdeal: She appears to be haunted by the memory of crying over her dead parents.
* PoisonousCaptive: Despite being captured by the Twelfth, she misses no chances mocking him when his plans go awry.
* PurpleEyes
* RapunzelHair: Down to her waist.
* [[spoiler:RedemptionEarnsLife: Minene gets to live.]]
* [[spoiler:RetiredOutlaw: In the finale, she has given up terrorism to live with third world Nishijima, but her other terrorist-bomber self is still running around there.]]
* SatisfiedStreetRat: She lost her parents in a religious struggle in the middle east and had to fend for herself in a place where she didn't even know the language, becoming a hardened {{Badass}} who would eventually target religious buildings and figures in her terrorist bombings.
* [[spoiler:SemiDivine: After being given half of Deus' powers.]]
* [[spoiler:SenselessSacrifice: Averted. Just as Ninth had broken her diary, Deus saved her from her vault explosion.]]
* ShamefulStrip: After being captured by the Twelfth, he strips her down to her panties and chains her to a wall.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: [[NiceGuy Nishijima]].
--> '''Minene:''' Nishijima [[spoiler:was only one man, but he]] told me he'd make me happy.
* SlasherSmile: Her default expression, though she keeps a much cooler head than most examples.
* SociopathicHero: In a very different way from [[VillainProtagonist Yuno]] in that she can be merciless, but not nearly be as monstrously manipulative as the latter.
* SourSupporter: [[spoiler:In the final battle, she isn't very supportive about Yukiteru wanting to save Yuno and everyone in the third world, but helps him anyway.]]
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:Becomes the most prominent one near the end of the story, through Deus. Her continued survival throughout the game causes Deus to deem her reliable enough to leave some of his power inside her. After she dies for [[NotQuiteDead the first time]], she manages to pull a BigDamnHeroes moment to save Yukiteru from the collapsing second world, and uses Deus' powers to follow Yuno back in time. She then leaves Yukiteru to make a phone call to Kurusu, telling him about his son's future condition and advising him to seek help for it. Her actions caused a domino effect that allowed all of the other Diary Holders (minus Third) to prevent many of their personal tragedies and achieve a happy ending.]]
* TheStrategist: Especially during the Fourth fight.
* StrawNihilist: She outright doesn't believe in God at least till Deus showed up, and she is jaded by her experiences.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Occasionally refers to herself as "Minene-sama" [[BadassBoast because she believes she is just that great]]. She doesn't do it as often as the story progresses, but whenever she gets serious against her opponents it tends to show up.
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: Completely in sync with her reputation as terrorist.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: Minene is a {{Badass}} terrorist who says she doesn't waste her time in girly stuff, but she likes ElegantGothicLolita dresses.
* [[spoiler:TouchedByVorlons: Received half of Deus's remaining power when he noticed [=MurMur=] was unfairly influencing the game to go in Yuno's favor. Deus was hoping that she would use his power to help set the game back on track, and while she did try to honor his request, Yukiteru's decision to ScrewDestiny and help the third world's Yuno made her change course.]]
* {{Tritagonist}}: The third most prominent protagonist after Yuki and Yuno, [[MeaningfulName though it might be deliberate]].
* {{Tsundere}}: According to [=MurMur=] to Nishijima, [[spoiler: [[HappilyMarried she's right]].]]
* TheUnfettered: In a different way than Yuno, in that she's more pragmatic about doing anything she can to achieve her objective than being vilely manipulative as in the case of the latter. She also becomes less brutal as the story goes on.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: She was one till her parents blew up.
* VillainAntagonist: Initially. She [[WouldHurtAChild blows up half of a school full of innocent children]] just so that she can kill Yuki.
* VillainessesWantHeroes: Inverted, as Nishijima is the one who actively pursues Minene.
* VillainProtagonist: After joining Yukiteru. Don't forget that she still committed crimes which resulted in hundreds of casualties. [[WouldHurtAChild Even innocent children]].
* VisualDevelopment: So much that she's unrecognizable from her first to later appearances.
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler:Calls Yuki out after he says he wants to become god so he can bring his parents back to life, saying that with such a reason anyone would want to be god while there is people like her who has suffered much more.]]
* WildCard: [[spoiler: Especially in the final battle, she's an outside player that not even [=MurMur=] saw coming.]]
* WouldHurtAChild: Introduced blowing up half of a school full of innocent children.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]
* YouRemindMeOfX: To Yukiteru. See NotSoDifferent.

----
* BadassMustache
* TheBeastmaster: He commands squads of attack dogs.
* [[spoiler:FaceDeathWithDignity: Before getting killed by the Fourth, he calmly says his last words and gives a warning to Yukiteru about being wary of nice people.]]
* GourmetPetFood: Gives his dogs expensive steak and wine, while he himself dines on cup noodles.
* KansaiRegionalAccent: He speaks standard Japanese most of the time, but he slips into the dialect during his [[spoiler:last conversation with his daughter]].
* MeaningfulName: Tsukishima (月島) contains the kanji for moon, and his first name, Karyuudo, is read as "hunter". Goddess of the moon and hunting? That's Diana in the Dii Consentes.
* NonActionGuy: He uses his dogs [[spoiler:and his own daughter]] to fight on his behalf.
* NoNameGiven: [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep His real name]] isn't revealed until [[spoiler:after his death]].

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/218px-John_Balks_1530.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' TakayaHashi (JP), ChristopherCoreySmith (EN)

The mayor of Sakurami and the one who suggested the idea of the Future Diary. His diary, "The Watcher", can spy on the contents of all other Future Diaries, making him one of the most formidable Diary Holders. His EvilPlan is to [[spoiler: link up the Eighth's Diary to the city's main server, turning every phone into an "Child Diary" and giving him nigh-omniscience.]]
----
* AllYourPowersCombined: He has the power to locate the other Diary users at all times [[spoiler: he planned to take it a step further, using Eighth's power to create an omnipotence completed with an endless supply of replaceable Child Diary users.]]
* {{Badass}}: Just on one occasion, but [[spoiler:when Minene made her first attack on him, he caught the grenade she threw at him without even looking in her direction, then nonchalantly [[GrenadeHotPotato threw the grenade back at her.]]]]
* BaldOfEvil: As well as a [[spoiler: [[ANaziByAnyOtherName a Nazi-eque liked minded thinker]].]]
* BigBrotherIsWatching: He's the mayor of the city, and he can spy on all other Diary Holders.
* ButtMonkey: Reduced to this in the Redial OVA. [=MurMur=] really seems to like shoving him down holes.
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler: Due to his Diary knowing the other Diary users' actions at all times]], he plans accordingly to all of them.
* DidntSeeThatComing[=/=]ThisCannotBe: [[spoiler:Yuno being able to open the vault he was in. The only ones who could open it were the Gasai family and Yuno was supposed to be an impostor since the third corpse in her house was revealed to be the "real" Yuno Gasai.]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: He acts like a gentleman around Kamado, but is completely antagonistic towards the other characters.
* GenreSavvy: When made a participant of the game, he decides to make his own diary, which can read all of the entries of the rest.
* AGlassOfChianti
* HappilyMarried: To [[spoiler: Kamado]] in the Redial manga.
* [[spoiler:TheHeavy: He convinced Deus to start the games in the first place.]]
* [[spoiler:HoistByHisOwnPetard: Balks hides himself in a vault in the bank once run by Yuno's parents, believing Yuno will be unable to use the retinal scanner to get in, under the belief she is not the real Yuno. It turns out she ''is'', and Balks has pretty much got himself into a corner.]]
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmtXA9y5Da8 Herrscher]]
* [[spoiler:KnowWhenToFoldEm: He cancels the entire game in the third world after realizing that he died because of it in the second world.]]
* LargeAndInCharge: One of the tallest characters in the series, plus having one of the strongest diaries to back up his boasts.
* LargeHam: Yeah.
* [[spoiler:LookOnMyWorksYeMightyAndDespair]]
* MeaningfulName: His last name "Balks" can also be read as "Bacchus", the same as the Roman god. TokyoPop seemed to pick up on the reference and translated his name using the same spelling "Bacchus". He's also one of the only diary holders whose namesake isn't a god listed in the Dii Consentes, along with Yomotsu Hirasaka.
** It probably explains why his and Yomotsu's diaries were modified last, making them Eleventh and Twelfth, respectively.
* {{Megane}}
* ANaziByAnyOtherName: [[spoiler:His ultimate goal is to use the power of Future Diaries to turn the people of Sakurami into a master race.]]
* [[spoiler: OffWithHisHead: Decapitated by Yuno.]]
* [[spoiler:PragmaticVillainy: At least in the third world. He convinces Deus to cancel the game and the creation of Future Diaries not because he has a change of heart or anything but because he learns that in the second world the game resulted in his death.]]
* ShipTease: Has a bit of it with Kamado. He acts much more gentlemanly towards her than towards other characters; in the manga after she undresses to reveal where she hid her Future Diary, he even gives her his own coat so she wouldn't feel uneasy. [[spoiler: And in one of the closing panels in chapter 59 they can be seen walking together.]] The scene where he gives her his coat wasn't included in the anime [[spoiler:but, on the other hand, in the last episode they are unambiguously shown to be a couple in the third world.]]
* SmugSnake: Very condescending towards First and Ninth in their attempts to reach him inside the vault.
* SuperpowerLottery: The Watcher hit the absolute jackpot.
* [[spoiler: UnclePennybags: To the Eighth's orphanage in the third world.]]
* UndisclosedFunds: Rich enough to have his own private army so to speak, a cellphone signal jammer installed in his own car [[spoiler:as a precaution against the Eighth's Child Diary owners]], and finally [[spoiler: his own supercomputer which is said to be the third greatest in processing power]].
* [[spoiler:TheVillainMakesThePlot: All of the insanity of the plot began with his desire for AGodAmI.]]
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Actually contributes to his downfall.

!!'''Yomotsu Hirasaka - The Twelfth'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/char_74359_4566.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' Yoshihisa Kawahara (JP), Ian Sinclair (EN)

A blind man who wants to be a superhero. His "Justice Diary" is an audio recorder that warns him of acts of "injustice" before they occur. It also gives him some sort of hypnosis power. While he claims to be a "Hero of Justice", his actions mark him more as a crazed vigilante.
----
* AllCrimesAreEqual: His diary records both littering and murder.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Assuming his backstory shown in the [=MurMur=] segment at the end of episode 5 is canon, before he got his Future Diary his attempts at being a superhero and helping others resulted in [[HeroWithBadPublicity people mocking him and throwing rocks at him if he was lucky, or mistaking him for a criminal and arresting him if he wasn't]].
* AntiVillain: Seems to be the only diary holder who truly wants to do "heroic" deeds, as opposed to the other diary holders who were mostly selfish or neutral.
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: In the second chapter of ''Mosaic'', he asks Minene why she hates God so much, and after getting a weak response, he then asks what happens after she kills God. He then points out that if she takes his place after killing him, then she would be God herself. Minene can't respond, and Yomotsu tells her that she's just a person who hates the world because of the hardships she had to suffer.
* {{Badass}}: [[{{Subverted}} Not really]], but it's fun watching him try. [[spoiler:Later DoubleSubverted in the third world, where he manages to catch Takao Hiyama.]]
* BlackAndWhiteInsanity: Believes quite strongly that the side that wins is the "good guys" while the losers are the "bad guys".
* BlindSeer: Played for laughs, especially with the whole SuperSentai deal.
* ChewingTheScenery: As his Hero self.
* ClarkKenting: He runs a merchandise shop for his hero mode in the ''Redial'' OVA.
* TheCuckooLanderWasRight: [[spoiler:Tsubaki was planning on deceiving Yukiteru and Yuno the entire time. Boy, was he right in believing that the cult was evil.]]
* DisabilitySuperpower: He's blind, so he gets enhanced hearing and hypnosis powers.
* DoppelgangerSpin: Does this with some brainwashed servants of Sixth, disguising them as himself [[SuperSentai while maintaining the sentai motif]]
* [[spoiler: EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Without his mask, which isn't clearly seen till the [=OVA=].]]
* EvilSoundsDeep: Inverted in the Japanese version, when going into his Hero mode his voice becomes more shrill and nasally. Played straight and justified in the dub.
* TheFaceless: He likes to wear a mask, and his face is never clearly shown [[spoiler:until the last episode of the anime and the ''Redial'' OVA]].
* ForGreatJustice: Criminals [[note]]and literring[[/note]] are nothing against the greater good.
* HenshinHero: Played either for laughs or very [[DissonantSerenity off putting]], since his costume face is done realistically [[note]] undressing and redressing[[/note]].
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice: Attempts one after learning he has a Dead End to take out Tsubaki, but fails when he attacks Yuki, Yuno, and Tsubaki; Yuno slashing his throat with an axe. However, this may have been intentional since Yomotsu opened Yuki's mind to the possibility Tsubaki was misleading him -- [[TheCuckooLanderWasRight she was]].]]
* HeroicWannabe: While he tries to do good deeds, [[spoiler: he doesn't do anything noticeably heroic till he captures Third.]]
* HeroWithBadPublicity: People understandably either view him as suspicious or a joke.
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98rPvXWHQJk Justice Rangers GO 12th!]]
* JusticeWillPrevail: Believes in this philosophy. [[spoiler: Third World Yomotsu and Tsubaki end up turning the Omekata cult into the Cult of Justice in the Redial manga.]]
* KnightTemplar: Littering and murder are crimes which deserve equal punishment.
* LargeHam: Especially in his costumed form.
* LimpAndLivid: Is very lean, which is very noticeable in his Hero state.
* MeaningfulName: Yomotsu Hirasaka is the name of the boundary between Life and Death in Japanese myth, and so he can be associated with the Roman god Pluto.
* MindControl: One of his powers...somehow.
* ShoutOut: To KamenRider and SuperSentai.
** His mask has a symbol very similar to that of one in the CodeLyoko series.
* SpandexLatexOrLeather: His comical superhero outfit consists of a full-body spandex suit with a sphere-like mask.
* TransformationSequence: His "transformation" sequence (which is simply him putting on the different articles of his costume and screeching "HENSHIIIN" the entire time) falls somewhere between hilarious and disturbing...though in the dub it's clearly the former.
* VigilanteMan: Goes back and forth between a heroic and villainous type.
* [[WhiteMaskOfDoom White Mask of Justice]]: A round bag with a rope tied around it.

!!'''Deus Ex Machina'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/deus_352.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' NorioWakamoto (JP), KentWilliams (EN)

The Lord of Time and Space who has called forth the Diary Holders to participate in a battle royale. [[spoiler:He is dying soon, so]] he wishes to pass on his power to the winner of the contest.
----
* ActorAllusion: [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist This isn't the first time]] [[KentWilliams he's]] played someone godlike before.
* AkashicRecords: He has it [[spoiler: as he planned to send Akise back since he served his purpose.]]
* AllPowerfulBystander: Despite being a literal [[PhysicalGod divine level]] RealityWarper [[DimensionLord who controls everything about his dimension]], he does not directly interfere with the games for two reasons, 1 it's against the rules he's set up [[spoiler: only interfering when knowing someone is bypassing the rules]] and two [[spoiler: [[SecretlyDying he's slowly decaying]]]].
* [[spoiler:BequeathedPower: Transfers half of his power to Minene.]]
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Honors and expects fair play within the games he supervises, but sees nothing morally wrong with conducting the survival game despite all the casualties it causes. He also likes to start wars for fun.
* [[spoiler: [[CantKillYouStillNeedYou Can't Let You Die, Still Need You]]: Deus saves Minene and gives her half of his power so she can stop [=MurMur=] and Yuno.]]
* CosmicKeystone: Without him, the universe collapses [[spoiler: made worse since he's SecretlyDying]].
* [[spoiler:DivineIntervention: He does this to prevent Minene's death.]]
* EnigmaticEmpoweringEntity: He gave the 12 holders their diary powers [[spoiler: as well as giving Minene half of his powers and a new arm.]]
* [[spoiler:[[GodIsDead God Is Dying]]: Part of the reason why he created the survival game.]]
* GodIsFlawed: He leans a bit closer to this in that he wants the survival game to play out fairly between the players and without outside intervention from himself or [=MurMur=], and honestly can't see the problem in it so long as he's kept entertained and his successor is chosen. He is also very willing to [[spoiler:cancel the whole game entirely]] when John Balks decides to [[spoiler:stop the Future Diary Project from developing further in the third world]].
* GodzillaThreshold: [[spoiler:Upon learning that Murmur purposely had the Fourth eliminated much earlier than planned, he becomes more cautious of her, and responds by placing the Observer [[note]]Akise[[/note]] on a more active role in the game.]]
** [[spoiler:Later, when it becomes glaringly obvious to Deus that Murmur is seen manipulating the game to go in Second's favor, it grows to the point that he had to rescue Minene from death and bestow her with half of his power to keep the game on track.]]
* [[spoiler:GracefulLoser: When Akise is able to prove his autonomy, Deus concedes that he is able to take his own actions and allows him back into the human world, able to change the game free of Deus' influence.]]
* HalfTruth: [[spoiler:When Yukiteru asks him to revive Rea, Deus replies than it's impossible. When questioned why that is so, he states that he's dying and losing his power. While he doesn't outright lie, the way he phrases his reply makes it look like it's only impossible for him in particular and that the new god will be able to revive Rea; he doesn't mention that even a god would only be able to revive the body but not the soul. As his later conversation with Akise shows, it's not that Deus himself isn't aware of this.]]
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPVZgdxFxAo EGOIST]]
* ItAmusedMe: Another part of his reason for creating the game.
* JerkassGod: He sits back and lets the players kill each other, only interfering due to players not playing by the rules. He doesn't care about how the battle game will emotionally scare the Diary users. [[spoiler:He then deconstructs every choice of free will that Akise ever did, even his love for Yuki, that being all programed.]]
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler: When he tells the truth to Akise about being an ArtificialHuman, Akise declares that his love for Yukiteru is genuine. Deus, who is nearly finished in returning Akise to the AkashicRecords, tells Akise that those feelings were also programmed into him. Given that Akise is very serious about his love for Yukiteru, it's a low blow, even if it ended up being true.]]
** [[spoiler:He also seriously considers following Eleventh's suggestion to remove Yukiteru and Yuno from the game when they fail to show any activity for five consecutive days. Given that Deus was pressed for time in choosing his successor before he dies, this ends up being more of a KickTheDog moment for Eleventh than Deus.]]
* KingOfAllCosmos: [[spoiler:Not as completely immortal as most.]]
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: His design looks like something out of BrianFroud's imagination than an anime character.
* NotSoImaginaryFriend: Yuki at first believes Deus to be his ImaginaryFriend. Turns out he isn't.
* TheOmniscient: While he is God, the [[ScryVsScry unstable nature]] of the Survival Game means he cannot keep track of everything. [[spoiler:So he uses an ArtificialHuman which he calls The Observer to record the events of the game, to check on the participants and investigate any irregularities which may endanger the game.]]
** For example when he noticed that the Tenth has hidden himself from the game, [[spoiler:the Observer was sent to check on him.]]
** Another is when Second digs a big pit and has buried something in her home. [[spoiler:The Observer was sent to investigate what she was trying to hide. Later revealed to be three corpses, two were Second's parents and the third is later revealed to be the Second belonging to this timeline. Deus deduces from this the nature of the Second, and plans accordingly.]]
* PalsWithJesus: Pretty much everyone who is able to visit the Hall of Causality is this to him since he's a pretty chill God. Special mention goes to Yukiteru though, whom Deus clearly favors over everyone else.
** Another is [[spoiler:with Balks as the two of them together founded the survival game.]]
* RulesLawyer: He puts a large emphasis on the rules [[spoiler: he found Tenth's avoidance to be a deviance from the game, so he planned accordingly, as well as planning against [=MurMur=] once it's clear that she favors Yuno.]]
* [[spoiler:SecretlyDying: The reason why he started the game in the first place.]]
* [[spoiler:YourDaysAreNumbered: By the time of the game, he was dying, so he wants the game to be completed as soon as possible.]]

Deus Ex Machina's servant, who takes the form of a dark-skinned little girl. [[spoiler: She is not as loyal to him as anyone was led to believe.]]
----
* AffablyEvil: [[TheGadfly Innocently messes around with each of the diary users]], [[spoiler: despite being a traitor to God and a follower of a crazed {{Yandere}}]].
* AmbiguouslyBrown
* AntiHero [[HeroAntagonist Antagonist]]: [[spoiler: Third world Murmur from the Redial OVA. She's simply trying to fulfill her duty as a loyal servant of Deus and first world Murmur is a threat.]]
* ArsGoetia
* [[spoiler:TheAtoner: In the Redial OVA, the first world [=MurMur=] is trapped by the third world's incarnation with the first Yuno's memories. Through this she realises the enormity of pain she had caused and contacts the third Yuno via a keychain replica of herself to give her a proper happy ending.]]
* [[spoiler:BastardUnderstudy: Subverted in the end. It turns out she was loyal to Yuno, most likely because she became god in the first world.]]
* BewareTheSillyOnes
* BitchInSheepsClothing: She sets herself off up as a CloudCuckooLander as well as a BrattyHalfPint, [[spoiler: in reality, she's far more manipulate and malevolent]].
** [[spoiler: She's also much less adorable in her true form, especially with RedEyesTakeWarning]]
** More evident in ''Paradox''. Her {{jerkass}} personality seems to be directed at Akise only to the point that it makes it seem like she's homophobic. Heck, she goes as far as calling him a fag in ''Paradox''. In the main series, she shows her true personality after [[spoiler:Deus dies]].
* BlushSticker
* BunnyEarsLawyer: She's a silly character for the most part (despite the occasional slip up, like the incident that sets up the storyline for ''Paradox''), but she knows how to do her job. [[spoiler:And she is '''a lot''' more competent and devious than she first appears.]]
* ButtMonkey: In ''Paradox''. Might lean into being TheChewToy depending on the fans that read the story.
* CloudCuckooLander
* [[spoiler:ClippedWingAngel: Even after taking her OneWingedAngel form, its implied that it exhausted a lot of her strength, since she was easily taken down by her other still restrained self.]]
* EnigmaticMinion: Towards the middle of the story, [=MurMur=] starts hinting that she knows more than she lets on, perhaps more than Deus, and [[spoiler:manipulates the game accordingly. Her true purpose isn't revealed until the full story about Yuno being [=MurMur=]'s real god comes to light.]]
* [[spoiler:TheDragon: Towards the end, she fights off the [[EmpoweredBadassNormal empowered Minene]] while Yuno arranges her life in the third world.]]
** [[spoiler:DragonInChief: Even after Yuno took her place as the final boss, [=MurMur=] still seems more malevolent than her and tried to ensure Yuno's victory throughout the whole series while Yuno certainly didn't want to win the Survival Game again.]]
* FusionDance: [[spoiler: First World [=MurMur=] did this and absorbed Yuno's corpse, inheriting her memories in the process.]]
* GameFace: [[spoiler:Her OneWingedAngel form in spades.]]
* GirlishPigtails
* [[spoiler:AGodAmI: She takes over after Deus dies.]]

* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zadFKAx58EY UBIQUITOUS ]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Mainly toward Akise. Otherwise, she mostly enjoys [[TheGadfly screwing around with everyone else.]]
* [[spoiler:JustBetweenYouAndMe: Shows Yukiteru the past events of the first world right after Yuno starts to attack him to "make the game more interesting". Since she was working under Yuno, she was probably expecting him to die right after showing him the past world. And she would've been right had it not been for Minene's interference.]]
* MeaningfulName: Named for the [[ArsGoetia Goetic demon]] Murmur. She also carries a small trumpet on her hip to reinforce the namesake. She eventually wears a crown just like the Murmur from myth is said to wear after [[spoiler:Deus' death]].
* MissExposition: In the dub, this is lampshaded in the second episode's make.
* [[spoiler:NotSoHarmlessVillain: Especially when her shackles are taken off.]]
* [[spoiler:ObfuscatingStupidity]]
* [[spoiler:OneWingedAngel: The form she takes after destroying her bracelets, a gray skinned, deranged version of herself with RedEyesTakeWarning.]]
* PerkyFemaleMinion
* PluckyComicRelief
* PurpleEyes
* RapunzelHair: It's the same length as her body.
* RestrainingBolt: The bracelets she wears keep her from acting against Deus's will, [[spoiler:or so he thought. In chapter 57, she takes them off. She was indeed serving God's will, but that God was not Deus.]]
* RulesLawyer
* ShipperOnDeck: Kind of. [[spoiler:In the Redial OVA, her actions reunited Yuki and Yuno, showing that, to some degree, she does approve of their relationship, though she might not have really cared before.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Although both fan translations of the Manga and the official Tokyopop release spelled her name "[=MuruMuru=]", the opening to the anime displays her name as "[=MurMur=]".
* VerbalTic: Ends every sentence with "-noja", the equivalent of the standard Japanese explanatory expression "-noda" in some Western Japanese dialects[[labelnote:*]]namely, the ones spoken in Okayama, Hiroshima and Yamaguchi prefectures, according to the [[http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%97%A5%E6%9C%AC%E8%AA%9E%E3%81%AE%E6%96%B9%E8%A8%80%E3%81%AE%E6%AF%94%E8%BC%83%E8%A1%A8#.E8.BF.91.E7.95.BF.E3.81.8B.E3.82.89.E4.B8.AD.E5.9B.BD.E3.81.AB.E3.81.8B.E3.81.91.E3.81.A6.EF.BC.88.E5.B1.B1.E9.99.BD.E9.81.93.EF.BC.89 Japanese]] [[TheOtherWiki Other Wiki]].[[/labelnote]].

He later gets from Eighth's Diary the "Detective Diary" which predicts other diary owners' actions regardless of how they change the future. In ''Paradox'', however, he borrows Yukiteru's "Indiscriminate Diary".

This includes not involving anyone during Ninth's hostage situation and battling her on his own (albeit [[ButtMonkey using [=MurMur=] as a fake hostage]] as well), figuring out what the cult was planning to do to Sixth and save her, prevent Fifth from becoming murderous by saving his parents and making Twelfth realize that his view of the world is wrong and he can still redeem himself by saving another. He even gets to befriend Seventh and Eighth in said situation. Naturally, the only person who does not like this attitude one bit is [=MurMur=].]]
** Also in the main series, but by proxy. [[spoiler: [[PassingTheTorch His dying message gives Yukiteru awareness of the]] AlternateTimeline, prompting Yukiteru to improve the lives of all the participants upon arrival in the third world.]]

* BadassNormal: He doesn't have a Future Diary, but he can still go toe-to-toe with Diary Holders.
** [[spoiler:EmpoweredBadassNormal: After he's revealed to be an ArtificialHuman created by Deus to observe the game, he receives the most powerful future diary of all through the Eighth's server system and uses it to become a terrifying opponent for even ''Yuno''.]]
* BarehandedBladeBlock: In the manga during [[spoiler:Yukiteru's and Yuno's last fight with Eleventh, he saves Eighth from Yuno by grabbing the blade of Yuno's sword when she's attacking her]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Akise rarely gets pissed off even when Yuno tries to kill him multiple times. [[spoiler: The only time he lost it was when he spared Yuno and she responds by calling Yuki and lying to him and manipulates him to kill his friends.]]
* BishieSparkle: In ''Paradox'', especially in chapter 3.
* {{Bishounen}}
* BiTheWay: If ''Paradox'' is ''anything'' to go off of. [[note]]In which he insists very clearly he is not gay, and seems to have a weird fondness for Tsubaki Kasugano, despite the undeniable HoYay with Yukiteru.[[/note]]
* BodyguardCrush: On Yuki.
* BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler:His confrontation with Deus. It's a real shocker to find out that you're not even human and then denied the things that made you you. The pride in his detective skills as well as his love for Yuki were denied by God himself. Fortunately, he breaks out of this quickly.]]
* TheComicallySerious
* CrazyJealousGuy: Towards Yuki, but only when Yuno is involved and rather subtle compared to how Yuno is a ClingyJealousGirl for Yuki [[spoiler:until the final confrontation]].
* CrazyPrepared: Near the beginning of his [[spoiler:final]] fight with Yuno.
* DeclarationOfProtection: To Yuki.
* {{Determinator}}: [[spoiler:Not even '''being completely beheaded''' stops him from giving Yukiteru a final warning about Yuno.]]
* DidntSeeThatComing: [[spoiler:Yuno having two Diaries. Of course no one besides [=MurMur=] or Yuno would have seen it coming.]]
* DissonantSerenity
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: [[spoiler:Akise briefly having Yukiteru's physical appearance at the beginning of the Redial OVA is almost definitely a [[MythologyGag reference to Paradox]].]]
* DramaticIrony: [[spoiler:He spends most of his run outsmarting diary holders with just his wits. When he gets his own diary Yuno outsmarts him and his diary with a clever BatmanGambit.]]
* [[spoiler:ExplainingYourPowerToTheEnemy: Reveals that he has a Child Diary at the very beginning of his final confrontation with Yuno, and soon after that explains what its power is as well. This makes it possible for Yuno to find a way to use that information against Akise himself, thus contributing to his ultimate defeat and death.]]
* {{Expy}}: His similarities to Kaworu of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' go way past the point of being unintentional. Like Kaworu, he's a [[MysticalWhiteHair white-haired]] guy voiced by AkiraIshida who seems to be in love with the meek main character, and turns out to be [[spoiler:an "angel" and later dies of decapitation]].
* [[spoiler:FirstLawOfResurrection: Despite the fact that the survival game never started in the third world and thus Deus didn't need an observer to keep up with it, Akise is shown to be alive and well in the third world in one of the closing panels of chapter 59. The manga doesn't give any explanation for his recreation. In the anime, third world Deus is shown using Akise to gather information about the impact Yukiteru, Yuno, and Minene made on the third world, so he presumably recreated Akise for that purpose.]]
* [[spoiler:ForcefulKiss: Gives one to Yukiteru ''[[BullyingADragon right in front of Yuno]]''.]]
* GreatDetective: [[spoiler:In the Redial manga he goes on to become a world famous detective.]]
* GuileHero: Relies on his own wits to trick his enemies rather than the ScryVsScry of the other Diary users.
* HeroAntagonist: In contrast to Yuno's VillainProtagonist.
* HeroicAlbino: Has shown shades of this in the actual series. Played straight in ''Paradox''.
* HeroicResolve: [[spoiler:Even though he was deleted and Deus proved that everything he did was planned out as God's will, he decides to forge his own future from that point on, creates his own future diary with Eighth's server system, and [[DeclarationOfProtection swears to protect Yukiteru]].]]
* HeroicRROD: [[spoiler:When he confronts Deus on his own and finds out that he's an ArtificialHuman, he tries to prove that everything he had done up to that point wasn't programmed into him, but with each of Deus' rejections, his body decayed more and more as it was returned into Deus's AkashicRecords. When he finally tried declare that his love for Yukiteru was real, Deus rejected that as well, and said it was also something that he willed to happen as {{God}}.]]
* HiddenHeartOfGold: Towards Yuki.
* HopelessSuitor: Was in love with Yuki and even tried to pursue him, but it was quite clear that he was more interested in Yuno.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: [[spoiler:During his last meeting with Yukiteru he claims that not stopping him from killing Mao and Kosaka was necessary, because it meant that the future predicted by his diary wouldn't change and that he would manage to kill Yuno. It's never made clear whether the readers are supposed to agree with Akise that letting Mao and Kosaka die was really necessary.]]
* IfItsYouItsOkay: Akise claims that he's not into boys. However, he says that he just loves Yuki.
* IGaveMyWord: Akise is one of the few characters that constantly tells the truth to Yuki and never breaks his promise to him. [[spoiler:But it was almost certainly averted with his promise to Kamado that he would't hand her over to Yukiteru in exchange for giving him a Child Diary. When Yukiteru found him after killing Mao and Kosaka, Akise was guarding the unconscious Kamado. As she was awake and running away from Yukiteru while his friends were stopping him just in the previous chapter, Akise must have been the one who caught her and knocked her out, as nobody else could have done that. And he almost certainly did that with an intention of letting Yukiteru kill her or even kiling her himself, as he already stated that he wanted Yukiteru to be god.]]
* ILetYouWin: [[spoiler: Implied to have intentionally lost to Yuno in the Redial OVA, as she finds the sword she took from him allowed her to go further in when her path was blocked.]]
* ImageSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfwvNGzy2WI The Search For A Certain Truth]]
* IncrediblyObviousTail: When tailing [[spoiler:Tenth]], and indeed he gets spotted.
* TheKidWithTheRemoteControl: [[spoiler: Third World Deus gives Akise the demon [[ArsGoetia Gremory]] who obeys his every command and comes to like Akise.]]
* [[spoiler:LastKiss: More like a stolen kiss, but it was probably his first with Yuki as well as his last as Yuno kills him shortly afterwards.]]
* LoveAtFirstSight: In ''Paradox'', Akise falls in love with the wounded Yuki at first sight.
* MeaningfulName: Named after Apollo.
* MysticalWhiteHair: His white hair certainly makes him look different from others. It later turns out [[spoiler:he isn't even human]].
* NiceGuy: One of the nicest characters in the series, [[BewareTheNiceOnes for the most part.]] [[spoiler: He didn't kill Yuno when he had the chance because of his better judgment. However, he soon regrets it, and she kills him.]]
* [[spoiler:NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Despite Akise sparing Yuno's life when he had the upper hand, she manages to trick his diary by forcing his blade into her abdomen, fulfilling his diary's prophecy and forcing him to waste his time in bandaging her wound so that she won't die, knowing that Yukiteru would lose his trust in Akise if he had allowed Yuno to bleed out. Once he runs to help the others, Yuno calls Yukiteru to lie to him about Akise and his friends, causing Hinata, Mao, and Kosaka to die as a result. Akise even relents that he should have killed her instead of letting her live.]]
* NotSoAboveItAll: For being such a heroic person, he's equally as {{Yandere}} to Yuki as Yuno is.
* NotSoDifferent: From Yuno.
* [[spoiler:OffWithHisHead: How he dies.]]
* [[spoiler:OutGambitted: To be fair, no one aside from [[=MurMur=] knew Yuno had a second diary.]]
* TheQuietOne: Usually.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: He's a subversion of the trope as despite being a very subtle {{yandere}}, he's mostly a nice person overall. [[spoiler:DoubleSubverted in his final confrontation with Yuno; he went for the kill and was only thwarted when Yuno was revealed to be holding out the second Yuno's future diary for him to smash.]]
* ShipperOnDeck: Subverted. At first he seems to be pushing Yuki to go out with Yuno going as far as to set them up for a date that could very well make them closer than before. However, this is so he can [[spoiler:trespass Yuno's home hoping to dig up information that will make Yuki realize how much of a bad person she is]].
** [[spoiler:Possibly zig-zagged in the Redial OVA, given that he intentionally lost to the third world's Yuno, and knowing what would happen if she freed the first world's [=MurMur=].]]
* ShipTease: A ''lot'' of this with Yukiteru in the main story and even stronger ''Paradox''. Also has a fair amount with Tsubaki in ''Paradox'', too.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Yukiteru-sexual. [[spoiler:Purposely made to be this way so that he would watch over Yukiteru for Deus.]]
* SpannerInTheWorks:
** The reason Tenth got caught in the first place is that he assumed that Akise was a diary wielder and was out to kill him. These turn of events later lead to his death.
** [[spoiler:He almost ruins [=MurMur=]'s plans in ''Paradox'' by preventing the tragedies that happen to nearly all the characters.]]
** [[spoiler:In the main series, his dying message to Yukiteru serves as a catalyst which triggers the events leading to the final act.]]
* [[{{Deuteragonist}} Tetragonist]]: The fourth most prominent protagonist after Yuki, Yuno and Minene.
* ThouShaltNotKill: Unlike Yuno, Akise does all in his power to avoid killing someone. [[spoiler:This backfires on him in the end.]] May be from [[spoiler:his role as the Observer]].
* {{Yandere}}: Much more subtle than Yuno, but it seems to be there. While usually nice for everyone, he did prove on a few occassions that he's willing to sacrifice others for Yukiteru's sake. [[spoiler:Once, without knowing whether it'll kill him or not, he instructed Yukiteru to break Kosaka's Child Diary, to see what might happen to him and to prevent Eighth from getting information from Kosaka's diary. Yukiteru did as he was told without any objections. Thankfully, since Kosaka wasn't bound by the game like the other diary holders, he lived.]]
** Made even more obvious after [[spoiler:Hinata's death, when Akise's diary predicted that Yukiteru would also kill Mao and Kosaka. Despite arriving at the scene in time to prevent this, Akise decided to abandon them to their fates instead. When questioned about this decision by Yukiteru, he replied that his diary also predicted that he's going to kill Yuno in a few minutes, so he didn't want to do anything that might have changed that future.]]
** His vague {{yandere}} tendencies become less vague in ''Paradox'', in that he is much more open about his desire to make sure that Yukiteru becomes a god.

Yuki's classmate, who doesn't like him much (the feeling's mutual). He enjoys blogging on his cell phone, which inadvertently connects him to the Eighth's Diary.

Later in the series, it is upgraded to the "Neo Kosaka King Diary", which predicts the brilliant moments of the people around him as well.
----

* TheFriendNobodyLikes: He hangs around with Yuki, Akise, Hinata, and Mao, but they actually don't like him at all since he's kind of a jerk.

* BeautyMark
* MeaningfulName: If Yukiteru is Jupiter (see his section above), then Rea is his Titaness mother Rhea.

Yuki's father who left after a divorce years ago. He and Yukiteru are shown spending some father-son bonding after a long time since the divorce around 2/3 into the manga, where he is introduced. He really seems to care for Yukiteru and Rea [[spoiler: or so we are led to believe ([[DoubleSubversion until that is subverted too]]). He is killed by the Eleventh's henchmen.]]
----
* DirtyCoward: [[spoiler:He jumps out of a collapsing Sakurami Tower by ''stealing his son's parachute'' leaving him to die and then he stabs his ex-wife (which kills her) when she stops him from escaping because he's terrified that she'll tell the police he just left his son to die on a collapsing tower. However, he likely [[AccidentalMurder did not intend to kill his ex-wife.]]]]
* DisappearedDad: He left Yuki years ago after he and Rea got a divorce. He came back though.
* HandsomeLech: He's {{Bishonen}} and very pervy.
* ItsAllAboutMe: His most prominent flaw is that he puts himself and his own troubles before everyone else. [[spoiler:He shows up just to find and break Yuki's Diary so that the Eleventh will clear the '''3 million yen''' debt he owes. However, he doesn't seem to know that doing so will kill Yuki.]]
** [[spoiler:As a sidenote, that comes out to roughly $30,000 US dollars -- not all that unreal as debts go.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: He puts his problems before anyone else's [[SharedFamilyQuirks something that he shares with his son to a lesser extent.]]
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: With all that said and done, [[spoiler:he didn't know that destroying the Diary meant killing his son. All he knew was that if he broke his son's cellphone, his debt would be wiped clean: that would give him the chance to go back to his family and make amends.]]
* MeaningfulName: Fitting with the rest of his family's ThemeNaming, "Kurou" resembles "Cronus". [[spoiler:Not to mention how he tries to kill his son...]]
* [[spoiler:OffingTheOffspring: He tries to destroy Yuki's Diary, although it seems like he doesn't know that this will kill Yuki.]]
* PetTheDog: After [[spoiler:he kills Rea and appears to be about to eliminate the evidence and escape]], we learn that [[spoiler:he had retrieved a telescope he had been previously forced to pawn so that he could gaze at the stars and calm himself before turning himself in. He also asks Yuki to start over with him when his sentence is over, to which he agrees.]] Despite [[spoiler:trying to sell Yuki out to the enemy, and murdering his mother]], it turns out those were just horrible mistakes that he never meant to happen and all he wanted was for the family to be happy... [[spoiler:[[RedemptionEqualsDeath and then he dies]].]]
* [[spoiler:RedemptionEqualsDeath: Yuki was willing to give him another chance after he turned himself and fulfilled his sentence, but the Eleventh's men killed him before he could do any of that. Ergo, Yuki forgave him completely and then freaks out on the murderers.]]
** [[spoiler: Justified in how he was rather EasilyForgiven for abandoning his son on the tower and for killing his ex-wife (even if it was by accident). He did feel remorseful, but it wasn't enough to justify his actions and was really the only way to make him more sympathetic.]]

!!Arata Hoshino

The main protagonist of the drama. A [[TheSlacker slacker]] of a college student, Arata has no interest in looking ahead to his future. Given a Future Diary by his friend Rui Moriguchi, Arata finds himself in a future he does not want, accompanied by his own stalker Yuno Furusaki.
----
* {{Badass}}: Compared to Yuki, Arata is a courageous person, willing to take on Yousuke to protect Yuno.
* BrilliantButLazy
* TheChosenOne: [[spoiler: Chosen by Deus to complete Olympia.]]
* ComesGreatResponsibility: Shortly after Arata gets his Future Diary, he spends a night gambling and partying with friends following his diary's predictions.
* {{Expy}}: Of Yuki, although there's little to compare between the two other than being stalked by Yuno.
* ExtremeDoormat: At first, but his desire to stop the game puts away with this trope.
* GenreSavvy: Everything Yuki did wrong, he seems to do right. When he is chained to a bed by Yuno, Arata escapes by tricking Yuno into freeing him, chains her to the bed, takes her diary and blocks her escape route with a wardrobe. And that still does not stop her.
* TheHero

Like the original Yuno, she is implied to have had a troubled childhood and may have one or two secrets hidden in her house.

* [[spoiler:HalfTruth: When Yukiteru asks him to revive Rea, Deus replies than it's impossible. When questioned why that is so, he states that he's dying and losing his power. While he doesn't outright lie, the way he phrases his reply makes it look like it's only impossible for him in particular and that the new god will be able to revive Rea; he doesn't mention that even a god would only be able to revive the body but not the soul. As his later conversation with Akise shows, it's not that Deus himself isn't aware of this.]]
