* AnimalMotifs: The Wolf
* AscendedExtra: Only mentioned in the manga, got a mini-arc to herself in the anime.
* ChildhoodMarriagePromise: One that Kouga gave to her when she was a little girl, but he came to pretty much forget. [[spoiler: It's hinted that he ''did'' remember later, but chose to not aknowledge it [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies to not have her tag along for danger]].]]
** [[spoiler: Ultimately in the anime, Kouga and she do get married when he takes full leadership of the wolf youkai.]]
* FieryRedhead
* FlowerInHerHair: Kouga gives her one of her namesake flowers as a child when he promised to marry her, and she's worn one in her hair ever since.
* FlowerMotifs: "Ayame" means "iris," and she wears an iris in her hair. [[spoiler: Koga gave her one of these in their first encounter.]]
* GirlishPigtails
* HiddenDepths: Not herself per say, but her existence does make Koga a more rounded protagonist in the anime, rather being another romantic rival for Kagome's affections.
* PluckyGirl: Despite being much weaker than most demons, she's just as resolved as any {{Badass}} in the series
* RescueRomance: Kouga saved her life when she was young.
* SheIsAllGrownUp: Kouga met Ayame as an adorable little youkai girl. When she shows up again, she's a total CuteBruiser babe.

->Voiced by: Hiroshi Matsumoto (JP), Lee Tockar (EN), Alberto Caneva [Izumo] and Roberto Draghetti [Gyu Oh] (IT)

* CarryABigStick: As Gyu Oh wields a wooden club embedded with fake Shikon Jewels.
* GeniusBruiser: Oxen and bovine creatures are usually portrayed as dumb or stupid, but Gyu Oh is far from this stereotype, as he managed to built several artificial (though weaker) Shikon Jewels.
* JekyllAndHyde: A more radical variation.
* ALoadOfBull: He's a minotaur
* TragicMonster: Izumo is genuinely a good person, but, y'know, turning into a savage bull demon ''every single night'' will probably be bad for your sanity.

Once a powerful ninja demon, he was in love with Tsukiyomi, a human woman. However, he was possessed by the dark powers of the Naginata of Kenkon, forged by Kaijimbo, and turned evil.

* DanceBattler: His fighting style, not surprisingly since his origins are in China.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: In order to release the power of his father, he decides to kidnap Kagome in order to instigate Inuyasha into doing a LeeroyJenkins so he'd release his father for him, and also take control of Kirara and [[spoiler: Kagome]] to gain an advantage while he's metamorphosing into the next Lord Hyoga. Also has his minions attack Sesshomaru just to find out whether he has the sword capable of releasing his father's power, and has one of them copy Miroku's power so they'd cancel each other out in case he tries to use it to not of being sucked into the Wind Tunnel.

* ManipulativeBastard: In a particularly mean way: [[spoiler: [[ForTheEvulz brainwashes Kagome into killing Inuyasha in the same manner as Kikyo]]]].

* OneWingedAngel: After becoming the New Lord Hyoga, he turns into a colossus with moth wings and antennae.
** ClippedWingAngel: It makes him a bigger target and is no where near as fast as he was before.
*** TheMinionMaster/ MookMaker/ EnemySummoner: He releases demons that were under his father's service to fight for him.
* PoisonousPerson: As a moth, it's obvious.
* SealedEvilInACan: Was sealed in a tree, along with the remains of his father.
* SmugSuper: The reason he doesn't need the Shikon Jewel for a power booster, is that, like Sesshomaru, he already has power to back his claims

!!Princess Kaguya

* TheCorrupter: She almost manages to permanently transform Inuyasha into his demon form.

* HairTriggerTemper: During her true form.

!!The Shitoshin
The main villains of the Fourth Movie. The Shitoshin (Four War Gods) were four powerful great demon lords that invaded Horaijima but got their power source removed, forcing them to stay on the island. The four members are (again) based on the Four Guardian Gods and are named Ryuura (Dragon), Kyora (Phoenix), Jura (Tiger) and Goura (Turtle).

->Voiced by: NobutoshiCanna [Ryuura], TakeshiKusao [Jura], NobuoTobita [Kyora], Tadahisa Saizen [Goura] (Jp), Kristian Ayre [Ryuura], Jason Simpson [Jura], Ted Cole [Kyora], Ward Perry [Goura] (En)
* AGodAmI: They claim to be gods.
* AnimalMotifs: See above in the description.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Goura.
* BadassNormal: Jura is the only member who does not use any kind of energy or magic for his attacks.
* {{BFG}}: Jura's Thunder Cannon.
* {{BFS}}: Ryuura's Fujinga and Raijinga swords.
* BigBadEnsemble
* DualWielding: Ryuura wields two huge scimitars in battle.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Kyora.
* {{Expy}}: All of them InUniverse: Ryuura's similar to Bankostu, Kyora to Jakostu and Abi, Goura to Ryukotsusei and Jura to Renkostu.
* {{Kaiju}}: Goura, an island-sized turtle.
* {{Guyliner}}: Kyora's lipstick.
* MadeOfIron: Goura's shield.
* OneWingedAngel: They all get a power up after retrieving their power orbs. [[spoiler: They also merge in a grotesque, asura-like monster with the bodies of the three members and Goura's shell.]]
* PaperFanOfDoom: Kyora's weapon.
* PlayingWithFire: Kyora and Goura to some extent.
* TurtlePower: Goura.
* WorthyOpponent: Sesshoumaru for Kyora.

!! [[SpearCounterpart Michiru]][=/=][[DistaffCounterpart Kaname]] Kururugi
The protagonist of the PS2 game "Secret of the Cursed Mask."
* AudienceSurrogate: Oh ''heck'' yes, and a rather awesome example, at that. He/she quickly becomes very useful thanks to the Shikigami powers and is integral in solving some of the major problems that come up (for example, one of his/her powers is essential to taking away enemy barriers so attacks will actually damage them). He/she's the "player character". Not to mention that given that Kururugi can "hook up" with one of the members of the group, he/she's also a "fanboy/fangirl surrogate". [[spoiler: Although that last part's kind of spoiled during the ending when Kururugi is sent back to the modern era...unless it's Kagome's ending, since of course Kagome lives in the modern era as well, so they can meet up pretty quickly.]]
* [[spoiler: ButNowIMustGo: How his/her story arc ends.]]
* CallingYourAttacks: Since Kururugi must rely on the powers of Shikigami in order to use any of his/her moves, every attack gets its own phrase.
* CharacterDevelopment: When Kururugi is first sent to the Feudal era, he/she's a fish out of water and is upset that there are no supermarkets around and his/her cell phone doesn't work. Then he/she is granted "Shikigami" powers, and eventually develops into a brave warrior in his/her own right. Also, in another example albeit a more minor case, Kururugi eventually learns (through his/her optional "romance" arc should the player choose to become especially close to a specific member of the group) to be more true to his/her feelings.
* GuideDangIt: It's possible for Kaname (and not Michiru, since he isn't gay) to end up with ''Sesshomaru'' of all people...but that requires a convoluted effort to not only not build up much affection with the other group members but also to do all the Sesshomaru events in the right order when you get them so you don't miss any. ''And'' at one point you have to choose to worry about Rin instead of your friends, but the impact of the choice isn't apparent right away. You'll only know you're on the right track if the "profile picture" on your save file suddenly has Sesshomaru's picture on it instead of one of the group members' pictures.
* LevelUpAtIntimacy5: Michiru/Kaname Kururugi can learn more "team-up" techniques depending on which member of the group Kururugi chooses to spend his/her days off with. (This is also indirectly how the others learn different "team-up" techniques, since if Kururugi pairs up with one of the group, the rest of the group must then pair up with different people for ''their'' days off).
* NiceGuy[=\=]Nice Girl
* SchrodingersPlayerCharacter: Some plot details change slightly depending on whether you pick Michiru, the boy, or Kaname, the girl. For example, the senior citizen "Kakuju" whom you meet early in the game is an old ''woman'' if you pick Michiru, and an old ''man'' if you pick Kaname, so Kakuju is always the ''opposite'' sex of whomever you pick as the player character. Likewise, [[spoiler: if you pick Michiru, the antagonist "Utsugi" turns out to be a man, and it's a fake person who looks like your identical ancestor. Utsugi is also your identical ancestor (not really) if you pick Kaname, but Utsugi is female instead. So unlike Kakuju, Utsugi is always the ''same'' sex as whomever you pick as the player character. This is a major plot point; you find out near the end of the game that Kakuju and the real Utsugi were ''lovers'', but Utsugi died and Kakuju created fake versions instead. And since the real Utsugi is your identical ancestor, this is why both Kakuju and Utsugi are each a different sex depending on whom you pick.]]
* SquishyWizard: S[=\=]He serves as this to the group.
* TookALevelInBadass
