An eccentric, GenreSavvy, [[GenkiGirl hyperactive]] young girl who enrolls in North High in her first year. She starts off the plot by roping in an unwitting Kyon into forming a club with her, the "'''S'''preading Excitement All '''O'''ver the World With Haruhi '''S'''uzumiya Brigade", or the '''SOS Brigade''' for short. Her eccentricity stems from the fact that she can't come to terms with the fact that she's not a special person, so she spends every day trying to look for something out of the ordinary.

* GenreSavvy: For every genre, even when it looks like she's WrongGenreSavvy, she's right.



* WrongGenreSavvy: Itsuki tries to exploit Haruhi's Genre Savviness, but it generally doesn't work out so well for him.



* {{Deconstruction}}: It's a hobby of hers. [[spoiler: She herself even deconstructs the BigBad EvilCounterpart trope. [[GenreSavvy She knows full well she's been cast as a villain in the story and doesn't want to play that role.]]]]

Taniguchi and Kunikida are ThoseTwoGuys and Kyon's main non-SOS Brigade friends. Both totally normal to all appearances, Taniguchi is a BigEater and something of a teenage CasanovaWannabe who is implied to have dated Haruhi for exactly five minutes back in junior high. Kunikida is Kyon's junior high friend, and receives no CharacterDevelopment or {{Backstory}} detail whatsoever - except that he gets better grades than Taniguchi or Kyon. They both act as an anchor of normalcy for Kyon, and occasional extra bodies in the SOS Brigade for things like baseball games or magazine publishing.

* FullNameBasis: Or a Japanese variant thereon: he always addresses female students with the honorific "-kun," which is typically used for boys and young men. As ThatOtherWiki notes, there are two exceptions to that practice, "in business settings, young female employees may also be addressed as -kun by older males of senior status," and "in the Diet of Japan (Legislature), chairpersons use -kun when addressing diet members and ministers." Either way, he's being pretentious.

* BadBadActing: an odd example. He's very stiff and lifeless in the Brigade's film, but he seemed to be doing much better in the play his class put on not long after.
