->"''I want to show them that even No-Stars have their pride!''"

->Voiced by: Creator/MarinaInoue (Japanese), Creator/DorothyEliasFahn (English)

Ryuko and Mako's classmate, an injured No-Star student who they help on No-Late Day. In truth, she is the Head of Trap Development for the Disciplinary Committee, who plots to steal Senketsu for her own ends.
----
* BackForTheFinale: Surprisingly, she can be vaguely made out in the background alongside a few club presidents.
* {{Badass}}: Ryuko even [[LampshadeHanging calls her such]] after seeing what she can do.
** BadassDriver: She can drive a turret-mounted armored bus like nobody's business.
** BadassNormal: For a No-Star student, she can be awesome.
** HandicappedBadass: She does all this with her arm in a cast! Except the "handicapped" part is fake.
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: Hilariously subverted; she throws herself off a highly elevated rolling platform after setting off one last trap for Ryuko, claiming she'll at least die with her dignity as a member of the Disciplinary Committee intact, only to open a parachute at the last second.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Pretends to be a nice, modest girl to gain Ryuko's trust in order to steal Senketsu.
* CardCarryingVillain: Once she stops her nice-girl façade.
* ContrivedClumsiness: Clumsily falls into Ryuko repeatedly while they're trying to get back to the Academy, constantly causing the Mankanshoku family to be DistractedByTheSexy and screwing up their attempts to give Ryuko her uniform. [[spoiler:Yeah, that was ''exactly'' the plan.]]
* CustomUniform: Subverted; despite being a club president, she's a No-Star like Mako. This is probably intended so that she can better blend in with the crowd, since part of her role is to lure the students into her traps.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: "[[EvilIsHammy CHIKARA-POWER!"]][[note]]"Chikara" already means "power", so she's basically saying "Power-Power". One fansubbing group (and later the official dub) created the word "''[[BreadEggsBreadedEggs stre]]''[[BreadEggsBreadedEggs power]]" (The strength! The power!!) to convey the redundancy.[[/note]]
* DidntSeeThatComing: Manages to put on Senketsu, but fails to realize that the only one he'll ever let use him is Ryuko.
* EvilIsHammy: As soon as she reveals her true nature, she really cuts loose.
* EvilLaugh: She has a very distinct NoblewomansLaugh.
* FalseFriend: Acts as Ryuko's friend just so she can get her hands on Senketsu.
* KarmaHoudini: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted; once she thinks she's gotten away after setting one final trap for Ryuko, Gamagoori promptly and justly expels her from the academy.]]
* KickTheDog: Literally does this to Guts' face when he tries returning Senketsu to Ryuko.
* ManipulativeBitch: Her "injured schoolgirl" act has Ryuko and Mako totally fooled while she plots to steal Senketsu at the right moment.
* {{Meganekko}}: Of the [[ManipulativeBitch bitchy, manipulative variety.]]
* TheMillstone: On top of dragging Ryuko down, she accidentally pulls down her pants her whenever Mako's family (carrying Senketsu) catches up with her, causing them to crash while [[DistractedByTheSexy distracted]]. It later turns out this is intentional.
* MonsterOfTheWeek: For the one and only episode she appears in, she stirs quite a commotion, mainly because of her true identity.
* TheMole: Her job entails going undercover as an ordinary student and setting up traps based on their behavior.
* NoblewomansLaugh: [[EvilLaugh KYAHOHOHOHO!]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: It's the first tell-tale sign she's really no good.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: A staple of hers once she shows her true colors.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Lampshaded by Senketsu; she has absolutely no shame, which is why she can wear him so easily.
* TheStarscream: After growing sick and tired of their job, she concocts a plan to overthrow Satsuki as Student Council President using Senketsu. Once her treachery is exposed, Gamagoori expels her for good.
* ThemeNaming: "Mai" is a kind of linen robe.
* TrapMaster: Helped build an entire ''amusement park'' of traps throughout the city!
* TheUnchosenOne: Subverted when she puts on Senketsu and easily activates his power. However, just because she is shameless enough to master the skimpy power of Senketsu within seconds, that doesn't mean that Senketsu will let her use him for her personal gain.
* WoundedGazelleGambit: She fakes an arm injury to get Ryuko to take pity on her and help her.

->"''You're Honnouji Academy's revolutionary! I can fight, too! Just as long as you lead the way!''"

->Voiced by: Creator/NobuhikoOkamoto

A No-Star student and former member of the Newspaper Club, suspended from Honnouji Academy after trying to start an insurrection against Satsuki through the school paper.

----
* AmusingInjuries: His beatdowns from the Disciplinary Committee are quite comical.
* BadassNormal: He's a No-Star student, yet he's willing to face down hulking One-Stars if it means taking down the system.
* ChasteHero: [[ExaggeratedTrope Played to ridiculous extremes]] when he nonchalantly emerges from a bathroom stall to speak to Mako ''in the girl's room''. [[spoiler: It's a subtle hint that he himself is actually [[SweetPollyOliver a girl in disguise]].]]
* TheDeterminator: Even while held down and beaten to a pulp by a gang of brutish thugs, he fiercely refuses to stay down until he gets Ryuko's attention. It turns out it's because [[spoiler:[[ImplacableMan they couldn't really have hurt him anyway.]]]]
* DissonantSerenity: He becomes quite serene and creepy moments before revealing [[spoiler:his true identity.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: When he's introduced, the BossSubtitles are black instead of red. [[spoiler:Implying that it's not his real name at all.]]
** He also mentions Satsuki had banned him from school recently. [[spoiler:Satsuki forbid ''her'' from entering the school grounds after Nui messed with her plans.]]
* FourEyesZeroSoul: To know just how soulless "he" is, see [[spoiler:Nui Harime.]]
* GlamourFailure: The reason his hair covers his left eye is to hide [[spoiler: Nui's trademark eyepatch]].
* HotBlooded: He ''slams'' his cup down on the tray when having a meal with Ryuko and Mako, then goes on to [[PercussiveTherapy pound the floor repeatedly]], spilling everyone else's tea.
* LargeHam: Shinjiro does not speak, he SHOUTS.
* MarionetteMaster: Those thuggish One-Star students who keep trying to silence him [[spoiler:are actually giant marionettes "he" controls using Life Fibers.]]
* MeaningfulName: "Shinjiro" sounds a lot like "''shinjiru''", the Japanese verb meaning "to trust". [[IronicName Ironically]], [[spoiler:it's to further emphasize Nui's deception of Mako and Ryuko.]]
* PeekABangs: His left eye is covered by his hair. [[spoiler:It's to hide the fact that it's missing due to GlamourFailure.]]
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: One of the first lines out of his mouth is "I'm not a suspicious person".
* VoiceOfTheResistance: He uses his papers to put together his own [[LaResistance resistance]] against the Student Council.
* WalkingSpoiler: In case the blanked out entries didn't tip you off, he [[spoiler:is really Nui in disguise.]]
* WideEyedIdealist: He cherishes freedom of speech in a world oppressed by Satsuki, and is passionate in his belief that Ryuko can save their school, which has gotten him in trouble with the Student Council many times.
* WoundedGazelleGambit: His helpless fight against the Student Council is part of an elaborate gambit to [[spoiler:get Ryuko to take pity on him and put Senketsu on again.]]

Ryuko and Mako's classmate, an injured No-Star
student who comes to Honnouji Academy in search of they help on No-Late Day. In truth, she is the truth behind Head of Trap Development for the Disciplinary Committee, who plots to steal Senketsu for her father's murder. Her investigation sends her on a collision course with the academy's StudentCouncilPresident, Satsuki Kiryuin, whom she thinks has the answers she seeks. Her only clue is also her weapon of choice, a giant red Scissor Blade left behind by the killer. own ends.



* TenMinuteRetirement: In episode 13, due to going out of control against Nui Harime in the previous episode. [[ShesBack She bounces right back]] in order to help a student who, in a twist on the usual outcome of this trope, [[spoiler: turns out to be Nui in disguise, who promptly defeats Ryuko and tears up Senketsu]].
** Once again in episodes 19 and 20; [[spoiler: after discovering the truth of her origin and birth, Ryuko abandons Senketsu, disregarding the state of the world and leaving to face Nui and Ragyo by herself.]]
* AchillesInHisTent: After she [[spoiler: completely loses her confidence due to giving into her rage during her fight with Nui]] in episode 12, she spends her time moping in her room. Eventually she changes her mind with a little persuasion from Shinjiro.
* ActionGirl: Can wield a scissor-shaped sword like nobody's business, with good escaping skills as a bonus.
** DarkActionGirl: All courtesy of [[spoiler:being brainwashed by Ragyo.]]
* AfraidOfNeedles: Acts like a crybaby when her teacher is about to draw blood from her.
** Justified in episode 18, where it's revealed [[spoiler:[[GuineaPigFamily her mother experimented on her as an infant]].]]
* AgeAppropriateAngst: Aikuro points out that her prickly personality is fairly typical of a seventeen-year-old. You also have to remember that she's a severely neglected orphan with a FriendlessBackground.
* AllMenArePerverts: There's hardly a single major male character she's met that she hasn't called a pervert, mainly because they [[YouCanLeaveYourHatOn keep taking off their clothes]] or telling her to take off her own. She even calls Tsumugu the "Pervert Club President" when she mistakes him for another one of Satsuki's flunkies.
* AncestralWeapon: Both Senketsu and quite possibly the Scissor Blade were created by her father for her to wield.
* AntiHero: While she is a good person at heart, her goals and motivation have little to do with heroism. She is a deeply scarred, aggressive girl who will not sacrifice her own goals for the sake of others. She will help those she cares for but doesn't really care much about the rest, though she starts to grow out of this mindset later in the series.
* AwesomenessIsAForce: For all of Inumuta's TechnoBabble regarding Ryuko's powers, Mako is able to boil it down to its purest form: Ryuko-''chan'' is really awesome.
* {{Badass}}: Hot ''damn''.
** BackToBackBadasses: With Tsumugu in episode 15.
** BadassBiker: In episode 14, she takes out all of the Elite Four's men on a motorbike.
** BadassBoast: Threatens to destroy Satsuki's plans at the end of episode 3.
** BadassNormal: She can take out One-Star Uniform-wearers with ''just'' the case she carries her weapon in. A flashback of her past even hinted she could beat up gangs of delinquents by herself.
** BroughtDownToBadass: Even with Senketsu out of action, she's still able to [[OneHitKill "insta-kill"]] One-Star Uniforms that have been upgraded with pieces of Senketsu.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: A very competent fighter in her own right, but can't take on any Two-Star or higher uniform user without Senketsu. [[spoiler:Episode 18 also reveals she was fused with Life Fibers since her infancy, subverting both this and BadassNormal in the process.]]
** TookALevelInBadass: Holy hell did she ever. She was already a badass to start, but she needed Senketsu for her to even stand a chance against Satsuki and her Elite Four. At the start of the series, her embarrassment about Senketsu's skimpiness hindered her fighting ability until she embraced her nudity, she then fought Satsuki to a standstill after getting [[CurbStompBattle curb stomped]] by her. Come episode 14 and 15, after [[spoiler: Senketsu is shredded by Nui]] she goes through Satsuki's ''entire army'' to put him back together, and one shots each them in nothing but a track suit. She then fights Satsuki again and does far better, even forcing her to retreat. By the time episode 18 has come, she's so powerful that she overwhelms Satsuki ''without'' Senketsu, while she is using her own Junketsu and when she does transform she's so in sync with Senketsu that she even overwhelms [[spoiler: Nui Harime]] to the point the latter sports a very uncharacteristic OhCrap expression. This girl is going places.
*** And by Episode 20, even when suffering a HeroicBSOD and without Senketsu at all, she can lop buildings in half from miles away, and is finally able to [[spoiler: grab and impale Nui, who only survives thanks to being another life fiber-empowered being like Ryuko.]]
* BareYourMidriff: Exaggerated, after losing her first uniform. Everything else she wears always exposes her stomach, except [[spoiler:when wearing Junketsu, starting in Episode 20.]]
* BashBrothers: Although neither of them really counts as a bro. Inevitable seeing how Senketsu can't fight by himself but this is essentially their dynamic. They know each other very well, their trust in each other is boundless and they love to banter happily during a fight.
** As of episode 22 [[spoiler: she's working this with Satsuki, who is her actual sister.]]
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: PlayedForLaughs, after being beaten by Fukuroda she comes back home and wishes she was stronger. Almost instantly she gets dropped into the basement where she finds Senketsu who forces himself upon her. That probably wasn't the kind of power up she wished for.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Ryuko tries avoiding Mako in the first episode, but starts hanging out with her more after Mako's family lets her stay with them for as long as she needs.
* BerserkButton: She can't stand [[AllMenArePerverts perverted guys]], and will beat them up the first chance she gets.
** In episode 11, [[WhamLine these words]] from Nui Harime [[UnstoppableRage set her off]]:
-->'''Nui Harime''': [[spoiler: [[TheReveal I'm the one who killed your father!]]]]
** Ryuko's family and details surrounding her father seem to be this. When being taunted by Ragyo [[spoiler:her biological mother]] and Nui [[spoiler:her father's killer]] at the same time, Ryuko is nearly in a rage-aneurysm.
* BigDamnHeroes: While it certainly looks like one, her appearing out of nowhere and beating up Honnouji's students during the Kansai school raid is actually a subversion. For one, she didn't come to save anyone but to [[spoiler:reclaim the pieces of Senketsu]], and in the long run didn't really defeat the three armies, merely weakening them. Furthermore, the three schools that were targeted by Ira, Uzu and Nonon still fell.
* BikerBabe: In episode 14. Don't ask where she got the bike. Again in episode 20.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Her Scissor Blade becomes fused to her right arm when [[spoiler: she loses control and overwhelms Senketsu]] in episode 12.
* BloodSplatteredWarrior: As she goes berserk, she becomes drenched in ''her own'' blood. Taken to the next extreme when [[spoiler:she rips apart Junketsu, who was forcibly attached to her through Life Fibers, resulting in her standing naked in a geyser of blood.]]
* BloodSplatteredWeddingDress: Episode 21, when she kills [[spoiler:Senketsu]] inside her MentalWorld.
* BodyHorror: In episode 12, when she [[spoiler: loses control of Senketsu and merges with him]]. Her skin turns a sickly bluish-green color; her eyes become yellow, bloodshot, and bulge (one bigger than the other) and her teeth become huge fangs, one of which sticks right up in front of her face, the others going through her skull, making her "horns"; her head rests atop her massive left shoulder/Senketsu's eye, feeding into her freakishly swollen left arm; her right arm becomes spindly, with her Scissor Blade grafted onto it; her neck is crooked and keeps cracking and [[HighPressureBlood spurting blood; her upper and lower body are held together by a gaping, toothy mouth ; and her otherwise normal legs have spikes hammered through them.]]
* BrainwashedAndCrazy:
** Ragyo takes control of Ryuko's mind with a Life Fiber and makes her attack Satsuki in episode 18, only for Ryuko to break free.
** In episode 20, [[spoiler:Ragyo rewrites Ryuko's memories to make her think she loves her insane mother, driving Ryuko to do a FaceHeelTurn. However, the efforts of Satsuki, Mako and Senketsu have seemingly snapped her out of it at the end of episode 21.]]
* BroughtDownToBadass: Episode 4 revolves around her having to navigate a massive DeathCourse on the way to school without Senketsu. She still does better than most of the No-Star student body, even when dragging along Mako and Maiko. In Episode 14 and the first half of Episode 15, she's brought down again because she has to reclaim [[spoiler:the pieces of Senketsu]] from the invasion force, succeeding by the second half.
* CainAndAbel: Is the Abel to [[spoiler:Satsuki before her HeelFaceTurn and especially to Nui, who killed her father]].
* CannotSpitItOut: Really struggles [[spoiler: to call Satsuki "Nee-''san''" (big sister), after acknowledging the fact that they were [[LongLostRelative sisters]].]]
* CantStandThemCantLiveWithoutThem: Ryuko always responds with a swift punch to the face whenever Mako's dad, brother, and dog try to peep on her, but she still considers them her family. This is most evident when she helps the Mankanshokus become wealthy, only for them to become so self-absorbed that they stop spending time with her, and she opens the window while taking a bath hoping they'll at least be there.
* CelibateHero: Ryuko is more driven by getting to know/avenging her father than considering a love interest. Although in a world where AllMenArePerverts is rampant, you wouldn't blame her.
* ChangedMyMindKid: Initially, she's not interested in donning Senketsu again and helping Nagita's resistance. However, that changes when [[MoralEventHorizon Honnouji enforcers beat up Mr. Mankanshoku in his own home]], where Nagita is trying to hide. ''However'', this turns out to be a serious case of ExploitedTrope, since [[spoiler: Nagita is Nui in disguise]].
* CharacterDevelopment: Initially, all that she cares about is using Senketsu to get her {{revenge}}, [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge everyone and everything else be damned]]. After she interacts with Mako, who loves her deeply, and Senketsu, [[spoiler: who is nearly permanently killed while serving her]], she begins caring about others -- she even let go of her chance for revenge to save Osaka from being burnt to the ground.
* ChekhovsGun: The red highlight in her hair. [[spoiler:It can cut Life Fibers]].
* CloseCallHaircut: When Tsumugu fires a giant seam ripper at her to stop her following him in Episode 5.
* CombatPragmatist: Uses all the advantages and dirty tricks she can get her hands on and never adheres to the rules of Honourable Combat.
* ConfusionFu: She uses this on Inumuta after she [[GenreSavvy instantly picks up his]] "[[AwesomeByAnalysis analyze-first, attack later]]" fighting style.
* CoolShades: Sports a pair in episode 14, justified since she's riding a motorbike.
* CovertPervert: It takes a few episodes before she can keep herself from blushing whenever Aikuro removes his glasses and shows off his manly physique.
* CuteLittleFangs: Has prominent incisors, as part of her WildChild image.
* DaddysGirl: {{Deconstructed}}. Her father was never there for her when she was growing up and her quest for his killer was meant to gain information on him and finally sort out her own life and feelings for him as much as it was to avenge him. The more she learns about the conspiracy he was involved in and her true origins, the more confused and resentful she becomes about everything that has to do with him and his work.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: Her combat outfit has a very, ''very'' short schoolgirl-themed skirt (the skirt is just about the only thing she doesn't mind about her uniform), and boy is she dangerous.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Not as obvious as most examples, but let's sum up her past: her mother dying at a young age, her father abandoning her when she was no more than 8 years old, alienated by her classmates, getting into fights and becoming a full-on juvenile delinquent, then, to top it all off, her father also dying under tragic circumstances. Gets even worse when it's revealed in episode 18 that [[spoiler: Ragyo is her mother and only had her to use for Life Fiber experiments]], and to top it all off ''[[spoiler: Ragyo threw her away to die when Ryuko was just out of the womb]]''.
* DarkIsNotEvil: She wears a dark-colored uniform, but is nonetheless heroic.
* DeathGlare: ''[[http://benigmatica.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/kill-la-kill-19-05.jpg?w=512&h=288 BIG TIME.]]''
* DespairEventHorizon: She crosses this at the end of Episode 18 when she finds out that, like her mother, [[spoiler:she is infused with Life Fibers.]] After this revelation, Ryuko refuses to wear Senketsu again and leaves her friends behind. This is mercilessly exploited by Ragyo, who succeeds in [[spoiler: [[MindRape mind-raping Ryuko]] to the point of [[FaceHeelTurn turning heel.]]]]
* {{Determinator}}: Even as she gets beaten and bruised, she ''refuses'' to go down if it means keeping her Scissor Blade and Senketsu out of enemy hands.
* DualWield: In episode 22, [[spoiler: Ryuko takes both halves of the Sword Scissors from Nui. Afterwards, Ryuko [[JustForPun disarms]] Nui.]]
* EdgyBackwardsChairSitting: In Episode 16, while listening to Mikisugi's lecture on Life Fibers.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Mako demonstrates such while encouraging her not to be afraid of getting naked:
-->'''Mako''': Your boobs are bigger than [Satsuki's]! I saw them! "That Ryuko, she's got a great rack!" My whole family was talking about them!
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Has a penchant for spinning her Scissor Blade around whether she's going for a finishing blow or just bringing it out of its case.
* ExcessiveEvilEyeshadow: When wearing [[spoiler:Junketsu]]. It's red and makes her look more akin to [[spoiler:Ragyo]].
* FaceHeelTurn: Does this unwillingly later in the series; after picking up the JerkassBall and confronting Ragyo and Nui in Episode 20, [[spoiler:she gets brainwashed into doing their bidding, wearing Junketsu in the process and attacking Nudist Beach's battleship not long after.]]
* FakeMemories: [[spoiler:Ragyo]] implants some into Ryuko, leading her to believe that [[spoiler:they've lived a normal and happy life as mother and daughter, thus resulting in her aforementioned FaceHeelTurn.]]
* FashionableAsymmetry: Senketsu has a multicolored eye on one side and a black eyepatch on the other. She also wears a fingerless glove on her left hand.
* FingerlessGloves[=/=]TrickedOutGloves: Her [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Crimson Glove]], which has a built-in syringe so Ryuko can feed Senketsu her blood and activate his power.
* FinishingMove: ''Sen-i-Soshitsu'' ("Fiber Stripper"), which completely shreds her opponent's uniform.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Hey, have you ever noticed how that red streak in her hair glows when she transforms? Ever see how [[spoiler: its similar to Ragyo's own sparkling hair?]] Now [[WhamEpisode Episode 18 rolls along,]] and drops the bomb that [[spoiler: Ryuko's actually her daughter.]]
** There is even more to that lock of hair. In some of her lectures Mako has a red streak of hair like Ryuko and when she does she touches it with one hand while [[spoiler:making scissor-cutting like motion with her other hand. Now, what did Ryuko use to break out of Ragyo's mind control?]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=XAmch6M0v8U&t=41s "Blumenkranz"]] starts playing when Ryuko is first revealed wearing Senketsu; {{foreshadowing}} the fact that she is [[spoiler:Ragyo Kiryuin's daughter.]]
* FullNameBasis: She tends to contemptuously address Satsuki by her full name, and vice-versa.
* GenreSavvy: In episode 10, she mocks Inumuta for being a stereotypical EvilGenius who'd brag about [[AwesomenessByAnalysis analyzing and predicting all her moves]], [[ConfusionFu so she fights erratically to keep him from getting that chance.]] She's also fully aware that attacking Gamagoori's Regalia will only make him stronger.
* [[ABoyAndHisX A Girl and Her]] {{Stripperiffic}} Sentient SailorFuku.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: A heroic version in episode 22, after [[spoiler: Ryuko and Senketsu [[ShesBack reunite]].]]
* GoingCommando: She is completely naked under her robe in episode 20 and doesn't even seem to care.
* HairDecorations: Sports a pair of small horns when Senketsu is activated.
* HalfHumanHybrid: She's [[spoiler:partly made of Life Fibers]].
* HappilyAdopted: Well, if you count her living with the Mankanshokus as adoption. Mako does mention paperwork.
* HeroicBSOD: Ryuko finds herself in a funk throughout episode 13 after [[spoiler: losing control of herself and dragging Senketsu in a horrific rampage across the school]], fearful of putting him through that again.
** Also shown in episode 19, where [[spoiler:she rejects wearing Senketsu, shunning it, as well as herself as a monster after the huge revelation. Understandable, considering her mother is one BigBad and the fact that she is not actually a human.]]
* HeroicRROD: In her [[UnstoppableRage rage against her father's killer]], [[spoiler: her [[HotBlooded boiling blood]] becomes too much for Senketsu to handle, causing him to instinctively eat her whole. The results are...[[BodyHorror not pretty]]]].
** {{Defied}} in episode 15. She's forced to transform using an only partially restored Senketsu, causing energy leakage that will eventually kill her. However, she snatches the very last piece from Satsuki before that can happen. Really shows how much she has grown as a person.
* HiddenBuxom: While her brash aggressiveness subverts the usual timidity associated with this trope, she is ''far'' more full-figured than her fully-clothed appearance suggests, as demonstrated when wearing [[{{Stripperiffic}} Senketsu]], and Mako states she surpasses Satsuki in bust size. However, she ''does'' get embarrassed over being seen in this state, though she puts up with it for the sake of defeating her enemies.
* HighPressureBlood: Bear in mind, though, [[OverDrawnAtTheBloodBank she also has enough blood]] to rival [[Manga/OnePiece Roronoa Zoro]].
* HeterosexualLifePartners: She and Mako are inseparable, although the "hetero" part is debatable on [[AmbiguouslyGay Mako's]] end.
** PlatonicLifePartners: She and Senketsu are also as inseparable, and the fact that he isn't human doesn't diminish their friendship at all.
* HotBlooded: Her blood literally ''boils'' in the heat of battle. [[spoiler: This proves incredibly dangerous for Senketsu, sending him into a frenzy and triggering a ''[[BodyHorror nightmarish]]'' HeroicRROD, which is only reversed thanks to [[ThePowerOfFriendship Mako]]]].
* HourOfPower: Initially, she can only fight using Senketsu for a limited time since he continually sucks her blood. If she fights for too long, she will eventually collapse from massive blood loss. This changes when she accepts Senketsu and they bond properly.
* IAmAMonster: After finding out that [[spoiler: she's half Life Fiber, and pretty much everything she knew was a lie,]] she concludes that she isn't human anymore and [[spoiler: wants nothing to do with Senketsu.]]
* IAmNotLeftHanded: She usually fights with the blunt edge of her Scissor Blade, only using the sharp edge when she finds herself outclassed. [[SubvertedTrope Not that this helps her in]] [[CurbStompBattle her first fight against a Two-Star student]].
* IAmWho: She's just a drifter seeking to avenge her father's death... [[spoiler:but that's not all: she's the child that Ragyo bore to experiment on, making her the second human-Life Fiber hybrid; incidentally, this makes her Satsuki's sister.]] This [[GoMadFromTheRevelation causes her some emotional]] [[HeroicBSOD distress, to say the least]].
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: While it's never said outright it's quite obvious that she really wants to have them. Despite being a bit aloof towards Mako at the start she very quickly befriended her and became ferociously protective of her. Also when she befriended Maiko she seemed really happy to have found another one.
* ImprobableUseOfAWeapon: In episode 2, she uses her Scissor Blade as an improvised tennis racket by holding it from the blade and tying some of Senketsu's thread on the handle.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Half of an enormous pair of scissors that are engineered to destroy Goku Uniforms.
** {{BFS}}: Decapitation Mode.
** HandbagOfHurt: Also employs its metal guitar case as both a weapon and a shield.
** ShearMenace: It is half of a pair of scissors.
* IndyPloy: Her stock in trade. Her long-term planning abilities are... unimpressive, to put it mildly, but she's ''amazing'' at on-the-fly improvisation.
* IneffectualDeathThreats: Even though she was enraged and thirsted for blood, all of the threats she made at [[spoiler:Mikisugi and Tsumugu had no substance behind them, even when she cut DTR in half Mikisugi was completely unharmed]]
* InTheBack: Throws her scissor blade at [[spoiler:Nui, which impales her from behind and leaves her PinnedToTheWall, after being freed from Junketsu's influence in episode 21.]]
* JapaneseDelinquent: Ryuko has the appearance and attitude of one, and she has a history of picking fights at school since she was very young.
* JerkAssBall: Picks it up [[spoiler: at the end of episode 19, expressing disgust with herself and Senketsu, saying she wants nothing to do with him any more]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's an aloof drifter with a serious vengeful streak to be sure, but she's also one of the kindest students in the school and is always willing to lend a helping hand, so long as no one tries to peep on her.
* KissingUnderTheInfluence: Deeply kisses [[spoiler:Nui of all people]] in Episode 21, [[spoiler:under Junketsu's influence when Nui asks if she still wants revenge for Nui killing her dad.]]
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: She always retreats the first chance she gets whenever she's faced with someone she knows she can't beat. Particularly justified when she starts using Senketsu, as up until episode 3, his power can only last for so long in battle before she gets exhausted.
** It gets somewhat exaggerated in the manga where she treats running away almost like some sort of special technique. Then again, judging by the reactions of everyone who saw her doing that they might not have even consider [[WorldOfBadass that someone can run away from a fight.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}
** "Before my Body is Dry", a dynamic rock ballad which features lyrics that explicitly state her and Senketsu's motivations, though only her sole half of the song has been used in the show so far.
** The first half of "斬LLLア生LL" -- essentially an orchestral remix of "Before my Body is Dry" -- is used many times during Ryuko's awesome or power-up scenes. Notably, it was used many times in episode 14, whenever Ryuko busted in on the Honnouji armies to retrieve Senketsu's pieces.
* LightIsNotGood: Played completely straight in Episode 20, since she's seen [[spoiler:wearing Junketsu and displaying maniacal faces after [[FaceHeelTurn turning heel]]]].
* LimitedWardrobe: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]]; after the first episode, Senketsu is the only non-pajama clothing she owns.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: By her [[ParentalAbandonment father Isshin]], [[TricksterMentor teacher Aikuro]], and [[TheRival rival Satsuki]] until episode 16, then it's one revelation after another.
* LukeIAmYourFather: The end of episode 18 reveals that [[spoiler: Ragyo is her mother, and by extension Satsuki is her older sister.]]
* MadeOfIron: Even when not transformed, Ryuko can take a stupid amount of punishment and get right back up. Episode 18 justifies this: turns out [[spoiler: she's a [[HalfHumanHybrid human-Life Fiber hybrid, like Ragyo.]]]]
* MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter: Initially subverted - Isshin Matoi was a perfectly sensible and sane scientist, despite his eccentric appearance. [[spoiler:Then we find out what her ''mother'' was like...]]
* MeaningfulName: One of the potential meanings of "Ryuko", [[spoiler:is "abandoned child"]]. [[http://sushiobunny.tumblr.com/post/76850838550/its-interesting-to-note-that-ryuukos-name-has See this for more details]], '''but watch out for spoilers'''.
* MediumAwareness: Not as much as Nui, but she is able to see Mako's thoughts on Isshin Matoi being the founder of Nudist Beach.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: In her berserk state. [[BodyHorror And not just where her mouth should be...]]
* MindRape: Is subjected to one in episode 20. [[spoiler:Before Ragyo implants FakeMemories of a happy life, and turns her [[FaceHeelTurn heel]], Ryuko pleads for her to stop.]]
* MissingMom: Her mother died when she was very young. Episode 18 expands on this by explaining that [[spoiler: Isshin actually lied to her, her mother is Ragyo Kiryuin who is very much alive.]]
* [[DaddysLittleVillain Mommy's Little Villain]]: [[spoiler:In episode 20, Ryuko's memories get replaced to make it look like she's been doted on by her mother Ragyo for her entire life, and always been in support of Ragyo's apocalyptic evil plan.]]
* MorphWeapon: She learns to make her weapon unfold into bigger forms.
** RetractableWeapon: She can also make it small enough to fit in her pocket, like a regular scissor blade.
** PowerDyesYourHair: Her hair gains even more red undertones when using Senketsu's full power. [[spoiler: Fittingly, it looks similar to Ragyo's usual hairstyle.]] The undertones turns blue when [[spoiler: she wears Junketsu]]
* NearRapeExperience: Parodied as a RunningGag--she gets into several situations which ''look'' like this, [[NotWhatItLooksLike but aren't]]. [[spoiler:Her suggestive scene with Nui and Ragyo in Episode 21 genuinely qualifies as rape as she was not in her right state of mind at the time.]]
* NewTransferStudent: For all but three minutes at the start of the series.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In episode 7, she starts a Fight Club and hands the presidential position to Mako so she and her family can have better living rights ([[JerkassBall and so she doesn't have to do all that paperwork herself]]). [[GoneHorriblyRight It works, but it also stiffens their quirky family dynamic]].
** Somewhat zigzagged in her fight against Sanageyama. At first it looks like a straight example because Sanageyama gains lots of [[TookALevelInBadass levels in badass]], meaning that Ryuko unintentionally made Satsuki's army stronger. But then it's inverted when [[spoiler:Satsuki and Honnouji Academy perform HeelFaceTurn and become Ryuko's allies against Ragyo.]]
* OneManArmy: Can take out entire schools on her own before getting Senketsu, then eventually can take on entire armies of one-star students (again without Senketsu), and later on [[spoiler:takes out an entire army of COVERS in a single swing]]. Again, without Senketsu. Now just imagine what she is with Senketsu.
* OnlySaneWoman: The only character who notices the total absurdity of [[WidgetSeries everything that ever happens in Honnouji]], which is only natural, since she doesn't live there.
* OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank: Ryuko loses ludicrous amounts of blood throughout episode 12. First, [[spoiler: she overwhelms Senketsu and [[BodyHorror crudely fuses with him]]]], causing her to start venting blood. After that, [[spoiler:Tsumugu is forced to topple spiked pillars on her]] releasing enough blood to create a ''geyser''! Then came episode 21, [[spoiler:where she rips off Junketsu as if it were her own skin, resulting in an absurd shower of blood.]]
* PajamaCladHero: For the duration of episode 4, since she's forced to go to school at 4 in the morning while Senketsu's being washed.
* ParentalAbandonment: Her mother died when she was little, and she lived in a boarding school away from her father right up until he was murdered. It's still [[spoiler: much better than what her biological parents did to her]].
* PowerLimiter: Done unconsciously. During her first two fights using Senketsu, she only has access to a fraction of the power he could grant her due to her embarrassment over how revealing the outfit is. Once she is able to embrace her own body, and thus stop being embarrassed over the outfit, she is able to access his full potential.
** The details are not explained but it seems like she had another one on her natural power. When [[spoiler:Ragyo put her under MindControl]] that limiter too was taken off and she was actually capable of [[spoiler:going toe to toe against transformed Satsuki]] without even activating Senketsu.
* PowerStrainBlackout: Before learning how to equip him properly, she passes out whenever Senketsu drinks too much blood.
* PragmaticHero: Ryuko has no qualms about using sneak attacks, or attacking enemies before they are prepared.
* AProtagonistIsRyu: A rare female example, though the "Ryu" in her name means "stream" rather than "dragon". Other than that, she fits this trope perfectly with her [[HotBlooded feistiness]] and intense rivalry with [[TheRival Satsuki Kiryuin]] who, ironically, ''does'' have the character for "dragon" in her name.
** Double fits this trope in that her [[FridgeBrilliance rightful name]] is Ryuko [[spoiler:Kiryuin]].
* RageAgainstTheMentor: Does not appreciate Aikuro's pre-episode 16 [[YouAreNotReady You Are Not Ready]] attitude, and is skeptical that he's told her the full truth after the revelations of episodes 18 and 19 [[spoiler: that she's a Life Fiber/human hybrid, she's Ragyo Kiryuin's daughter, Satsuki's her sister, and Isshin Matoi was really Soichiro Kiryuin]].
* RangedEmergencyWeapon: By using a wire leash, she can hurl her Scissor Blade as a ranged attack.
* RedBaron: She's infamous as the "Kanto Vagabond" and the "[[SenselessViolins Guitar Case Drifter]]".
* RedOniBlueOni: The vengeful, HotBlooded and defiant Red Oni to Satsuki's Blue Oni. Incidentally, her Kamui (Senketsu) has red highlights whereas Satsuki's has blue.
** Senketsu also serves as the Blue Oni when Satsuki isn't present.
* RefusalOfTheCall: After knowing the truth about Senketsu, Nudist Beach, COVERS, and the Primordial Life Fiber, she refuses the role because no one besides herself even considered Senketsu's feelings on [[spoiler: fighting his own kind.]]
* ReluctantFanserviceGirl: She's mortified by Senketsu's skimpy armored form. It later turns out this prevents her from unleashing his full potential, forcing him to drink more of her blood just to stay active, which in turn exhausts her in battle. Once she embraces her own body, she is able to share it with Senketsu more evenly.
** ShamelessFanserviceGirl: The direct result of the above, [[DownplayedTrope though she still won't tolerate guys trying to get some eye candy.]]
* RightHandOfDoom: Ryuko gains a grotesquely bloated left arm when she [[spoiler: gives into her fury and overwhelms Senketsu]] in episode 12.
* RivalsTeamUp: In episode 22.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: She's on one to avenge the death of her father.
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: With Mako.
* SanitySlippage: After [[WhamEpisode Episode 18]], it seems her sanity deteriorates with every episode. It all culminates in her being [[spoiler: brainwashed into an AxCrazy sociopath]] in episode 20.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Wears [[spoiler: Senketsu's last remaining piece]] as one in episode 14.
* SecondHourSuperpower: She taps into Senketsu's full power as early as episode 3 once she learns to accept his skimpiness. She only keeps getting more and more powerful from there.
* SecondYearProtagonist: She's in her second year of high school.
* SecretLegacy: Twice over. First through Isshin, who [[spoiler:founded Nudist Beach]] and made Senketsu especially for her, and then as revealed in episode 18 [[spoiler:she's really Ragyo Kiryuin's lost daughter]].
* SeenItAll: Slowly develops into this. At the start of the series she's as weirded out by Mako's antics as everyone else and can't help but blush at Mikisugi's stripping; later on she can predict what's going on in Mako's head and is barely fazed by a whole army of nude guys.
* SheatheYourSword: In episode 7, she deactivates Senketsu and lowers her weapon to get Mako to stop fighting her.
* ShesBack
** She recovers from her HeroicBSOD in episode 13, which is promptly [[ExploitedTrope exploited]], [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]], and [[SubvertedTrope subverted]]; [[spoiler: Nui got her back on her feet just for a chance to continue their battle, and even then, Ryuko hasn't fully overcome her fears and holds back, leading to Senketsu getting torn to shreds.]] It only happens for real two episodes later, when she [[spoiler:recovers all of Senketsu's pieces.]]
** After yet another HeroicBSOD in episode 19, which was combined with DespairEventHorizon and [[spoiler:an involuntary FaceHeelTurn,]] she pulls out all the stops and [[spoiler:breaks free from Ragyo's FakeMemories]] in Episode 21, [[spoiler:tearing Junketsu to shreds in the process.]]
* SkunkStripe: Has a single red streak in her dark blue hair. [[spoiler:It's also a Life Fiber blade.]] She gains more of them the more she draws on Senketsu's power.
* SlasherSmile: As Episode 20 demonstrates, Ryuko can pull off ''terrifying'' ones. Being [[spoiler:brainwashed by Ragyo]] has a lot to do with it, but still...
* SmugSuper: The more powerful she becomes and the easier she knocks her opponents down, the cockier she gets. Senketsu does call her out in episode 5, but it only barely sticks after [[WakeUpCallBoss Tsumugu]] and later Sanageyama take her out.
* SpeedEchoes: Ryuko is fast enough to create these with Senketsu's help.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Senketsu's base form barely covers anything.
** Subverted when [[spoiler: she wears Junketsu post-FaceHeelTurn]], which is the most modest Kamui transformation yet.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: There are two distinct sides to Ryuko's personality: the side that's driven by stone-cold vengeance to slaughter the Honnouji Academy Student Council, and the side that just wants to enjoy eating lunch with her best friend.
* SuperMode: When she finally achieves the perfect Synchronization with Senketsu, her hair and the lines on Senketsu begin to glow and she becomes so fast that she leaves [[SpeedEchoes after-images.]]
* SuperSpeed: Nearly every opponent--including Satsuki herself--has expressed shock at Ryuko's tremendous speed while wearing Senketsu.
** FragileSpeedster[=/=]GlassCannon: Her strength and speed are top notch, but her defenses are quite low, evidenced by the fact that she takes damage from attacks coming from three-star Goku uniforms, which are considerably weaker than a Kamui, and the fact that Junketsu can pierce through Senketsu's defense.
* ThemeNaming: "Matoi" means "to wear".
* ThongOfShielding: Her suspenders ride up her backside just like an actual thong. Some shots show she [[PantyShot still wears panties]] under Senketsu.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Tomboy to Mako's Girly Girl.
** She's also the Tomboy to ''Nui's'' Girly Girl, though in that case the relationship isn't exactly a friendly one.
* TomboyishSidetails: She gains a pair of these whenever she activates Senketsu.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Lemons, if episode 1 and the opening are anything to go by. She even eats the skin!
* TragicKeepsake: Her Scissor Blade is the very same one used to kill her father. She also considers Senketsu to be this, since he was made by her dad.
* TransformationSequence: Complete with {{Gainaxing}}.
* TraumaCongaLine: It feels like episodes 18 and on are dedicated to just how much shit can be thrown at Ryuko. First, she finds out that Ragyo [[spoiler:is her mother,]] [[BeatStillMyHeart in the worst possible way no less.]] Then, she discovers that [[spoiler: she isn't human.]] And finally she is {{Mind Rape}}d into [[spoiler: wearing Junketsu.]]
* TrueCompanions: With Senketsu and Mako, though on separate terms since Mako doesn't know Senketsu is alive. Later on, Nudist Beach, [[spoiler:Satsuki and the Elite Four also join her circle of friends]].
* UglyGuysHotDaughter: [[ZigZaggingTrope Zigzagged.]] Hell, her dad looks old enough to be her ''grandfather''. Then it was revealed that [[spoiler: she was actually Ragyo Kiryuin's daughter, which utterly confused the idea that she could possibly be his daughter. Then it was revealed that she actually was his daughter. Not only that, but her father was very good-looking, but purposely changed his looks to hide from his wife.]]
* {{Underboobs}}: While Senketsu is transformed.
* UnskilledButStrong: Shares this with Senketsu in early episodes. There are few better ways to describe someone wearing a 100% Life Fiber uniform that some subs translate as a "Godrobe," (which, by the way, is probably not an exaggeration) but struggles against people wearing 20% Life Fiber. She and Senketsu get better, though. [[DegradedBoss Lord,]] [[CurbStompBattle do they]] [[TookALevelInBadass get better.]] Especially after consuming all that Life Fiber.
* UnstoppableRage: She ''completely'' flips her lid when she meets her father's killer, [[spoiler:Nui Harime]], which transforms her in a [[spoiler: [[BodyHorror very terrible manner]] that causes her to [[OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank lose a nearly fatal amount of blood]], nearly dying if [[BigDamnHeroes it weren't for Mako]]]].
* UnwittingPawn: Brought about by Satsuki in episode 7, who uses her newly founded Fight Club to weed out all undesirable students at the academy so she can restructure the Student Council to her liking.
** Happens again after episode 12, where Satsuki reveals that both the Naturals Election and Ryuko's battles with the Elite Four allowed her to create better Goku Uniforms, finally giving her the power to take over all the schools in Japan.
** Satsuki reveals that initially her plan was to simply to use Ryuko [[spoiler:in her quest to defeat Ragyo]].
* VaginaDentata: Her entire waistline turns into a massive mouth with sharp teeth when [[spoiler: she goes berserk.]]
* WallRun: She can run up vertical surfaces without activating Senketsu, as demonstrated at the end of the Naturals Election.
* WorthyOpponent: Satsuki considers Ryuko to be this.
** Sanageyama also sees her as this, outright proclaiming he refuses to die until he gets even with her.
* WhoWearsShortShorts: Her skirt transforms into a combination of skirt and shorts (shorts in the middle, skirt in the sides) when she activates Senketsu.
* WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises: Noticeably sports them when [[spoiler:under Junketsu's control, being brainwashed to support Ragyo's plan and fight Nudist Beach.]]
* WouldHurtAChild: Ryuko doesn't hesitate to hit Mataro, who is a child, if he peeps her. {{Justified|Trope}}, since Mataro is a pervert, and Ryuko does ''not'' tolerate perverts. She also beat up Mataro's gang when they picked a fight with her, though she was probably holding back a lot when she did.
* YouKilledMyFather: She's looking for the woman responsible. When she does, she's...[[UnstoppableRage not happy]].
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade-A when Senketsu is activated.

to:

* TenMinuteRetirement: In episode 13, due to going out of control against Nui Harime {{Badass}}: Ryuko even [[LampshadeHanging calls her such]] after seeing what she can do.
** BadassDriver: She can drive a turret-mounted armored bus like nobody's business.
** BadassNormal: For a No-Star student, she can be awesome.
** HandicappedBadass: She does all this with her arm
in a cast! Except the previous episode. [[ShesBack She bounces right back]] "handicapped" part is fake.
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: Hilariously subverted; she throws herself off a highly elevated rolling platform after setting off one last trap for Ryuko, claiming she'll at least die with her dignity as a member of the Disciplinary Committee intact, only to open a parachute at the last second.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Pretends to be a nice, modest girl to gain Ryuko's trust
in order to help a student who, in a twist on the usual outcome of this trope, [[spoiler: turns out to be Nui in disguise, who promptly defeats Ryuko and tears up Senketsu]].
**
steal Senketsu.
* CardCarryingVillain:
Once again in episodes 19 and 20; [[spoiler: after discovering the truth of she stops her origin and birth, Ryuko abandons nice-girl façade.
* CustomUniform: Subverted; despite being a club president, she's a No-Star like Mako.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: "[[EvilIsHammy CHIKARA-POWER!"]][[note]]"Chikara" already means "power", so she's basically saying "Power-Power"[[/note]]
* DidntSeeThatComing: Manages to put on
Senketsu, disregarding but fails to realize that the state of only one he'll ever let him is Ryuko.
* EvilIsHammy: As soon as she reveals her true nature, she really cuts loose.
* EvilLaugh: She has a very distinct NoblewomansLaugh.
* FalseFriend: Acts as Ryuko's friend just so she can get her hands on Senketsu.
* KarmaHoudini: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted; once she thinks she's gotten away after setting one final trap for Ryuko, Gamagoori promptly and justly expels her from
the world and leaving to face Nui and Ragyo by herself.academy.]]
* AchillesInHisTent: After KickTheDog: Literally does this to Guts' face when he tries returning Senketsu to Ryuko.
* ManipulativeBitch: Her "injured schoolgirl" act has Ryuko and Mako totally fooled while
she [[spoiler: completely loses her confidence due plots to giving into her rage during her fight with Nui]] in episode 12, she spends her time moping in her room. Eventually she changes her mind with a little persuasion from Shinjiro.
steal Senketsu at the right moment.
* ActionGirl: Can wield a scissor-shaped sword like nobody's business, with good escaping skills as a bonus.
** DarkActionGirl: All courtesy of [[spoiler:being brainwashed by Ragyo.
{{Meganekko}}: Of the [[ManipulativeBitch bitchy, manipulative variety.]]
* AfraidOfNeedles: Acts like a crybaby when her teacher is about to draw blood from her.
** Justified in episode 18, where it's revealed [[spoiler:[[GuineaPigFamily her mother experimented on her as an infant]].]]
* AgeAppropriateAngst: Aikuro points out that her prickly personality is fairly typical
TheMillstone: On top of a seventeen-year-old. You also have to remember that she's a severely neglected orphan with a FriendlessBackground.
* AllMenArePerverts: There's hardly a single major male character she's met that she hasn't called a pervert, mainly because they [[YouCanLeaveYourHatOn keep taking off their clothes]] or telling her to take off her own. She even calls Tsumugu the "Pervert Club President" when she mistakes him for another one of Satsuki's flunkies.
* AncestralWeapon: Both Senketsu and quite possibly the Scissor Blade were created by her father for her to wield.
* AntiHero: While she is a good person at heart, her goals and motivation have little to do with heroism. She is a deeply scarred, aggressive girl who will not sacrifice her own goals for the sake of others. She will help those she cares for but doesn't really care much about the rest, though she starts to grow out of this mindset later in the series.
* AwesomenessIsAForce: For all of Inumuta's TechnoBabble regarding Ryuko's powers, Mako is able to boil it down to its purest form: Ryuko-''chan'' is really awesome.
* {{Badass}}: Hot ''damn''.
** BackToBackBadasses: With Tsumugu in episode 15.
** BadassBiker: In episode 14, she takes out all of the Elite Four's men on a motorbike.
** BadassBoast: Threatens to destroy Satsuki's plans at the end of episode 3.
** BadassNormal: She can take out One-Star Uniform-wearers with ''just'' the case she carries her weapon in. A flashback of her past even hinted she could beat up gangs of delinquents by herself.
** BroughtDownToBadass: Even with Senketsu out of action, she's still able to [[OneHitKill "insta-kill"]] One-Star Uniforms that have been upgraded with pieces of Senketsu.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: A very competent fighter in her own right, but can't take on any Two-Star or higher uniform user without Senketsu. [[spoiler:Episode 18 also reveals she was fused with Life Fibers since her infancy, subverting both this and BadassNormal in the process.]]
** TookALevelInBadass: Holy hell did she ever. She was already a badass to start, but she needed Senketsu for her to even stand a chance against Satsuki and her Elite Four. At the start of the series, her embarrassment about Senketsu's skimpiness hindered her fighting ability until she embraced her nudity, she then fought Satsuki to a standstill after getting [[CurbStompBattle curb stomped]] by her. Come episode 14 and 15, after [[spoiler: Senketsu is shredded by Nui]] she goes through Satsuki's ''entire army'' to put him back together, and one shots each them in nothing but a track suit. She then fights Satsuki again and does far better, even forcing her to retreat. By the time episode 18 has come, she's so powerful that she overwhelms Satsuki ''without'' Senketsu, while she is using her own Junketsu and when she does transform she's so in sync with Senketsu that she even overwhelms [[spoiler: Nui Harime]] to the point the latter sports a very uncharacteristic OhCrap expression. This girl is going places.
*** And by Episode 20, even when suffering a HeroicBSOD and without Senketsu at all, she can lop buildings in half from miles away, and is finally able to [[spoiler: grab and impale Nui, who only survives thanks to being another life fiber-empowered being like Ryuko.]]
* BareYourMidriff: Exaggerated, after losing her first uniform. Everything else she wears always exposes her stomach, except [[spoiler:when wearing Junketsu, starting in Episode 20.]]
* BashBrothers: Although neither of them really counts as a bro. Inevitable seeing how Senketsu can't fight by himself but this is essentially their dynamic. They know each other very well, their trust in each other is boundless and they love to banter happily during a fight.
** As of episode 22 [[spoiler: she's working this with Satsuki, who is her actual sister.]]
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: PlayedForLaughs, after being beaten by Fukuroda she comes back home and wishes she was stronger. Almost instantly she gets dropped into the basement where she finds Senketsu who forces himself upon her. That probably wasn't the kind of power up she wished for.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Ryuko tries avoiding Mako in the first episode, but starts hanging out with her more after Mako's family lets her stay with them for as long as she needs.
* BerserkButton: She can't stand [[AllMenArePerverts perverted guys]], and will beat them up the first chance she gets.
** In episode 11, [[WhamLine these words]] from Nui Harime [[UnstoppableRage set her off]]:
-->'''Nui Harime''': [[spoiler: [[TheReveal I'm the one who killed your father!]]]]
** Ryuko's family and details surrounding her father seem to be this. When being taunted by Ragyo [[spoiler:her biological mother]] and Nui [[spoiler:her father's killer]] at the same time, Ryuko is nearly in a rage-aneurysm.
* BigDamnHeroes: While it certainly looks like one, her appearing out of nowhere and beating up Honnouji's students during the Kansai school raid is actually a subversion. For one, she didn't come to save anyone but to [[spoiler:reclaim the pieces of Senketsu]], and in the long run didn't really defeat the three armies, merely weakening them. Furthermore, the three schools that were targeted by Ira, Uzu and Nonon still fell.
* BikerBabe: In episode 14. Don't ask where she got the bike. Again in episode 20.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Her Scissor Blade becomes fused to her right arm when [[spoiler: she loses control and overwhelms Senketsu]] in episode 12.
* BloodSplatteredWarrior: As she goes berserk, she becomes drenched in ''her own'' blood. Taken to the next extreme when [[spoiler:she rips apart Junketsu, who was forcibly attached to her through Life Fibers, resulting in her standing naked in a geyser of blood.]]
* BloodSplatteredWeddingDress: Episode 21, when she kills [[spoiler:Senketsu]] inside her MentalWorld.
* BodyHorror: In episode 12, when she [[spoiler: loses control of Senketsu and merges with him]]. Her skin turns a sickly bluish-green color; her eyes become yellow, bloodshot, and bulge (one bigger than the other) and her teeth become huge fangs, one of which sticks right up in front of her face, the others going through her skull, making her "horns"; her head rests atop her massive left shoulder/Senketsu's eye, feeding into her freakishly swollen left arm; her right arm becomes spindly, with her Scissor Blade grafted onto it; her neck is crooked and keeps cracking and [[HighPressureBlood spurting blood; her upper and lower body are held together by a gaping, toothy mouth ; and her otherwise normal legs have spikes hammered through them.]]
* BrainwashedAndCrazy:
** Ragyo takes control of Ryuko's mind with a Life Fiber and makes her attack Satsuki in episode 18, only for Ryuko to break free.
** In episode 20, [[spoiler:Ragyo rewrites Ryuko's memories to make her think she loves her insane mother, driving Ryuko to do a FaceHeelTurn. However, the efforts of Satsuki, Mako and Senketsu have seemingly snapped her out of it at the end of episode 21.]]
* BroughtDownToBadass: Episode 4 revolves around her having to navigate a massive DeathCourse on the way to school without Senketsu. She still does better than most of the No-Star student body, even when
dragging along Mako and Maiko. In Episode 14 and the first half of Episode 15, she's brought down again because she has to reclaim [[spoiler:the pieces of Senketsu]] from the invasion force, succeeding by the second half.
* CainAndAbel: Is the Abel to [[spoiler:Satsuki before her HeelFaceTurn and especially to Nui, who killed her father]].
* CannotSpitItOut: Really struggles [[spoiler: to call Satsuki "Nee-''san''" (big sister), after acknowledging the fact that they were [[LongLostRelative sisters]].]]
* CantStandThemCantLiveWithoutThem:
Ryuko always responds with a swift punch to the face down, she accidentally pulls down her pants her whenever Mako's dad, brother, and dog try to peep on her, but she still considers them her family. This is most evident when she helps the Mankanshokus become wealthy, only for them to become so self-absorbed that they stop spending time family (carrying Senketsu) catches up with her, and she opens the window while taking a bath hoping they'll at least be there.
* CelibateHero: Ryuko is more driven by getting to know/avenging her father than considering a love interest. Although in a world where AllMenArePerverts is rampant, you wouldn't blame her.
* ChangedMyMindKid: Initially, she's not interested in donning Senketsu again and helping Nagita's resistance. However, that changes when [[MoralEventHorizon Honnouji enforcers beat up Mr. Mankanshoku in his own home]], where Nagita is trying to hide. ''However'', this turns out to be a serious case of ExploitedTrope, since [[spoiler: Nagita is Nui in disguise]].
* CharacterDevelopment: Initially, all that she cares about is using Senketsu to get her {{revenge}}, [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge everyone and everything else be damned]]. After she interacts with Mako, who loves her deeply, and Senketsu, [[spoiler: who is nearly permanently killed while serving her]], she begins caring about others -- she even let go of her chance for revenge to save Osaka from being burnt to the ground.
* ChekhovsGun: The red highlight in her hair. [[spoiler:It can cut Life Fibers]].
* CloseCallHaircut: When Tsumugu fires a giant seam ripper at her to stop her following him in Episode 5.
* CombatPragmatist: Uses all the advantages and dirty tricks she can get her hands on and never adheres to the rules of Honourable Combat.
* ConfusionFu: She uses this on Inumuta after she [[GenreSavvy instantly picks up his]] "[[AwesomeByAnalysis analyze-first, attack later]]" fighting style.
* CoolShades: Sports a pair in episode 14, justified since she's riding a motorbike.
* CovertPervert: It takes a few episodes before she can keep herself from blushing whenever Aikuro removes his glasses and shows off his manly physique.
* CuteLittleFangs: Has prominent incisors, as part of her WildChild image.
* DaddysGirl: {{Deconstructed}}. Her father was never there for her when she was growing up and her quest for his killer was meant to gain information on him and finally sort out her own life and feelings for him as much as it was to avenge him. The more she learns about the conspiracy he was involved in and her true origins, the more confused and resentful she becomes about everything that has to do with him and his work.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: Her combat outfit has a very, ''very'' short schoolgirl-themed skirt (the skirt is just about the only thing she doesn't mind about her uniform), and boy is she dangerous.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Not as obvious as most examples, but let's sum up her past: her mother dying at a young age, her father abandoning her when she was no more than 8 years old, alienated by her classmates, getting into fights and becoming a full-on juvenile delinquent, then, to top it all off, her father also dying under tragic circumstances. Gets even worse when it's revealed in episode 18 that [[spoiler: Ragyo is her mother and only had her to use for Life Fiber experiments]], and to top it all off ''[[spoiler: Ragyo threw her away to die when Ryuko was just out of the womb]]''.
* DarkIsNotEvil: She wears a dark-colored uniform, but is nonetheless heroic.
* DeathGlare: ''[[http://benigmatica.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/kill-la-kill-19-05.jpg?w=512&h=288 BIG TIME.]]''
* DespairEventHorizon: She crosses this at the end of Episode 18 when she finds out that, like her mother, [[spoiler:she is infused with Life Fibers.]] After this revelation, Ryuko refuses to wear Senketsu again and leaves her friends behind. This is mercilessly exploited by Ragyo, who succeeds in [[spoiler: [[MindRape mind-raping Ryuko]] to the point of [[FaceHeelTurn turning heel.]]]]
* {{Determinator}}: Even as she gets beaten and bruised, she ''refuses'' to go down if it means keeping her Scissor Blade and Senketsu out of enemy hands.
* DualWield: In episode 22, [[spoiler: Ryuko takes both halves of the Sword Scissors from Nui. Afterwards, Ryuko [[JustForPun disarms]] Nui.]]
* EdgyBackwardsChairSitting: In Episode 16, while listening to Mikisugi's lecture on Life Fibers.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Mako demonstrates such while encouraging her not to be afraid of getting naked:
-->'''Mako''': Your boobs are bigger than [Satsuki's]! I saw them! "That Ryuko, she's got a great rack!" My whole family was talking about them!
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Has a penchant for spinning her Scissor Blade around whether she's going for a finishing blow or just bringing it out of its case.
* ExcessiveEvilEyeshadow: When wearing [[spoiler:Junketsu]]. It's red and makes her look more akin to [[spoiler:Ragyo]].
* FaceHeelTurn: Does this unwillingly later in the series; after picking up the JerkassBall and confronting Ragyo and Nui in Episode 20, [[spoiler:she gets brainwashed into doing their bidding, wearing Junketsu in the process and attacking Nudist Beach's battleship not long after.]]
* FakeMemories: [[spoiler:Ragyo]] implants some into Ryuko, leading her to believe that [[spoiler:they've lived a normal and happy life as mother and daughter, thus resulting in her aforementioned FaceHeelTurn.]]
* FashionableAsymmetry: Senketsu has a multicolored eye on one side and a black eyepatch on the other. She also wears a fingerless glove on her left hand.
* FingerlessGloves[=/=]TrickedOutGloves: Her [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Crimson Glove]], which has a built-in syringe so Ryuko can feed Senketsu her blood and activate his power.
* FinishingMove: ''Sen-i-Soshitsu'' ("Fiber Stripper"), which completely shreds her opponent's uniform.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Hey, have you ever noticed how that red streak in her hair glows when she transforms? Ever see how [[spoiler: its similar to Ragyo's own sparkling hair?]] Now [[WhamEpisode Episode 18 rolls along,]] and drops the bomb that [[spoiler: Ryuko's actually her daughter.]]
** There is even more to that lock of hair. In some of her lectures Mako has a red streak of hair like Ryuko and when she does she touches it with one hand while [[spoiler:making scissor-cutting like motion with her other hand. Now, what did Ryuko use to break out of Ragyo's mind control?]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=XAmch6M0v8U&t=41s "Blumenkranz"]] starts playing when Ryuko is first revealed wearing Senketsu; {{foreshadowing}} the fact that she is [[spoiler:Ragyo Kiryuin's daughter.]]
* FullNameBasis: She tends to contemptuously address Satsuki by her full name, and vice-versa.
* GenreSavvy: In episode 10, she mocks Inumuta for being a stereotypical EvilGenius who'd brag about [[AwesomenessByAnalysis analyzing and predicting all her moves]], [[ConfusionFu so she fights erratically to keep him from getting that chance.]] She's also fully aware that attacking Gamagoori's Regalia will only make him stronger.
* [[ABoyAndHisX A Girl and Her]] {{Stripperiffic}} Sentient SailorFuku.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: A heroic version in episode 22, after [[spoiler: Ryuko and Senketsu [[ShesBack reunite]].]]
* GoingCommando: She is completely naked under her robe in episode 20 and doesn't even seem to care.
* HairDecorations: Sports a pair of small horns when Senketsu is activated.
* HalfHumanHybrid: She's [[spoiler:partly made of Life Fibers]].
* HappilyAdopted: Well, if you count her living with the Mankanshokus as adoption. Mako does mention paperwork.
* HeroicBSOD: Ryuko finds herself in a funk throughout episode 13 after [[spoiler: losing control of herself and dragging Senketsu in a horrific rampage across the school]], fearful of putting him through that again.
** Also shown in episode 19, where [[spoiler:she rejects wearing Senketsu, shunning it, as well as herself as a monster after the huge revelation. Understandable, considering her mother is one BigBad and the fact that she is not actually a human.]]
* HeroicRROD: In her [[UnstoppableRage rage against her father's killer]], [[spoiler: her [[HotBlooded boiling blood]] becomes too much for Senketsu to handle,
causing him them to instinctively eat her whole. The results are...[[BodyHorror not pretty]]]].
** {{Defied}} in episode 15. She's forced to transform using an only partially restored Senketsu, causing energy leakage that will eventually kill her. However, she snatches the very last piece from Satsuki before that can happen. Really shows how much she has grown as a person.
* HiddenBuxom: While her brash aggressiveness subverts the usual timidity associated with this trope, she is ''far'' more full-figured than her fully-clothed appearance suggests, as demonstrated when wearing [[{{Stripperiffic}} Senketsu]], and Mako states she surpasses Satsuki in bust size. However, she ''does'' get embarrassed over being seen in this state, though she puts up with it for the sake of defeating her enemies.
* HighPressureBlood: Bear in mind, though, [[OverDrawnAtTheBloodBank she also has enough blood]] to rival [[Manga/OnePiece Roronoa Zoro]].
* HeterosexualLifePartners: She and Mako are inseparable, although the "hetero" part is debatable on [[AmbiguouslyGay Mako's]] end.
** PlatonicLifePartners: She and Senketsu are also as inseparable, and the fact that he isn't human doesn't diminish their friendship at all.
* HotBlooded: Her blood literally ''boils'' in the heat of battle. [[spoiler: This proves incredibly dangerous for Senketsu, sending him into a frenzy and triggering a ''[[BodyHorror nightmarish]]'' HeroicRROD, which is only reversed thanks to [[ThePowerOfFriendship Mako]]]].
* HourOfPower: Initially, she can only fight using Senketsu for a limited time since he continually sucks her blood. If she fights for too long, she will eventually collapse from massive blood loss. This changes when she accepts Senketsu and they bond properly.
* IAmAMonster: After finding out that [[spoiler: she's half Life Fiber, and pretty much everything she knew was a lie,]] she concludes that she isn't human anymore and [[spoiler: wants nothing to do with Senketsu.]]
* IAmNotLeftHanded: She usually fights with the blunt edge of her Scissor Blade, only using the sharp edge when she finds herself outclassed. [[SubvertedTrope Not that this helps her in]] [[CurbStompBattle her first fight against a Two-Star student]].
* IAmWho: She's just a drifter seeking to avenge her father's death... [[spoiler:but that's not all: she's the child that Ragyo bore to experiment on, making her the second human-Life Fiber hybrid; incidentally, this makes her Satsuki's sister.]] This [[GoMadFromTheRevelation causes her some emotional]] [[HeroicBSOD distress, to say the least]].
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: While it's never said outright it's quite obvious that she really wants to have them. Despite being a bit aloof towards Mako at the start she very quickly befriended her and became ferociously protective of her. Also when she befriended Maiko she seemed really happy to have found another one.
* ImprobableUseOfAWeapon: In episode 2, she uses her Scissor Blade as an improvised tennis racket by holding it from the blade and tying some of Senketsu's thread on the handle.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Half of an enormous pair of scissors that are engineered to destroy Goku Uniforms.
** {{BFS}}: Decapitation Mode.
** HandbagOfHurt: Also employs its metal guitar case as both a weapon and a shield.
** ShearMenace: It is half of a pair of scissors.
* IndyPloy: Her stock in trade. Her long-term planning abilities are... unimpressive, to put it mildly, but she's ''amazing'' at on-the-fly improvisation.
* IneffectualDeathThreats: Even though she was enraged and thirsted for blood, all of the threats she made at [[spoiler:Mikisugi and Tsumugu had no substance behind them, even when she cut DTR in half Mikisugi was completely unharmed]]
* InTheBack: Throws her scissor blade at [[spoiler:Nui, which impales her from behind and leaves her PinnedToTheWall, after being freed from Junketsu's influence in episode 21.]]
* JapaneseDelinquent: Ryuko has the appearance and attitude of one, and she has a history of picking fights at school since she was very young.
* JerkAssBall: Picks it up [[spoiler: at the end of episode 19, expressing disgust with herself and Senketsu, saying she wants nothing to do with him any more]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's an aloof drifter with a serious vengeful streak to be sure, but she's also one of the kindest students in the school and is always willing to lend a helping hand, so long as no one tries to peep on her.
* KissingUnderTheInfluence: Deeply kisses [[spoiler:Nui of all people]] in Episode 21, [[spoiler:under Junketsu's influence when Nui asks if she still wants revenge for Nui killing her dad.]]
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: She always retreats the first chance she gets whenever she's faced with someone she knows she can't beat. Particularly justified when she starts using Senketsu, as up until episode 3, his power can only last for so long in battle before she gets exhausted.
** It gets somewhat exaggerated in the manga where she treats running away almost like some sort of special technique. Then again, judging by the reactions of everyone who saw her doing that they might not have even consider [[WorldOfBadass that someone can run away from a fight.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}
** "Before my Body is Dry", a dynamic rock ballad which features lyrics that explicitly state her and Senketsu's motivations, though only her sole half of the song has been used in the show so far.
** The first half of "斬LLLア生LL" -- essentially an orchestral remix of "Before my Body is Dry" -- is used many times during Ryuko's awesome or power-up scenes. Notably, it was used many times in episode 14, whenever Ryuko busted in on the Honnouji armies to retrieve Senketsu's pieces.
* LightIsNotGood: Played completely straight in Episode 20, since she's seen [[spoiler:wearing Junketsu and displaying maniacal faces after [[FaceHeelTurn turning heel]]]].
* LimitedWardrobe: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]]; after the first episode, Senketsu is the only non-pajama clothing she owns.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: By her [[ParentalAbandonment father Isshin]], [[TricksterMentor teacher Aikuro]], and [[TheRival rival Satsuki]] until episode 16, then it's one revelation after another.
* LukeIAmYourFather: The end of episode 18 reveals that [[spoiler: Ragyo is her mother, and by extension Satsuki is her older sister.]]
* MadeOfIron: Even when not transformed, Ryuko can take a stupid amount of punishment and get right back up. Episode 18 justifies this: turns out [[spoiler: she's a [[HalfHumanHybrid human-Life Fiber hybrid, like Ragyo.]]]]
* MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter: Initially subverted - Isshin Matoi was a perfectly sensible and sane scientist, despite his eccentric appearance. [[spoiler:Then we find out what her ''mother'' was like...]]
* MeaningfulName: One of the potential meanings of "Ryuko", [[spoiler:is "abandoned child"]]. [[http://sushiobunny.tumblr.com/post/76850838550/its-interesting-to-note-that-ryuukos-name-has See this for more details]], '''but watch out for spoilers'''.
* MediumAwareness: Not as much as Nui, but she is able to see Mako's thoughts on Isshin Matoi being the founder of Nudist Beach.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: In her berserk state. [[BodyHorror And not just where her mouth should be...]]
* MindRape: Is subjected to one in episode 20. [[spoiler:Before Ragyo implants FakeMemories of a happy life, and turns her [[FaceHeelTurn heel]], Ryuko pleads for her to stop.]]
* MissingMom: Her mother died when she was very young. Episode 18 expands on this by explaining that [[spoiler: Isshin actually lied to her, her mother is Ragyo Kiryuin who is very much alive.]]
* [[DaddysLittleVillain Mommy's Little Villain]]: [[spoiler:In episode 20, Ryuko's memories get replaced to make it look like she's been doted on by her mother Ragyo for her entire life, and always been in support of Ragyo's apocalyptic evil plan.]]
* MorphWeapon: She learns to make her weapon unfold into bigger forms.
** RetractableWeapon: She can also make it small enough to fit in her pocket, like a regular scissor blade.
** PowerDyesYourHair: Her hair gains even more red undertones when using Senketsu's full power. [[spoiler: Fittingly, it looks similar to Ragyo's usual hairstyle.]] The undertones turns blue when [[spoiler: she wears Junketsu]]
* NearRapeExperience: Parodied as a RunningGag--she gets into several situations which ''look'' like this, [[NotWhatItLooksLike but aren't]]. [[spoiler:Her suggestive scene with Nui and Ragyo in Episode 21 genuinely qualifies as rape as she was not in her right state of mind at the time.]]
* NewTransferStudent: For all but three minutes at the start of the series.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In episode 7, she starts a Fight Club and hands the presidential position to Mako so she and her family can have better living rights ([[JerkassBall and so she doesn't have to do all that paperwork herself]]). [[GoneHorriblyRight It works, but it also stiffens their quirky family dynamic]].
** Somewhat zigzagged in her fight against Sanageyama. At first it looks like a straight example because Sanageyama gains lots of [[TookALevelInBadass levels in badass]], meaning that Ryuko unintentionally made Satsuki's army stronger. But then it's inverted when [[spoiler:Satsuki and Honnouji Academy perform HeelFaceTurn and become Ryuko's allies against Ragyo.]]
* OneManArmy: Can take out entire schools on her own before getting Senketsu, then eventually can take on entire armies of one-star students (again without Senketsu), and later on [[spoiler:takes out an entire army of COVERS in a single swing]]. Again, without Senketsu. Now just imagine what she is with Senketsu.
* OnlySaneWoman: The only character who notices the total absurdity of [[WidgetSeries everything that ever happens in Honnouji]], which is only natural, since she doesn't live there.
* OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank: Ryuko loses ludicrous amounts of blood throughout episode 12. First, [[spoiler: she overwhelms Senketsu and [[BodyHorror crudely fuses with him]]]], causing her to start venting blood. After that, [[spoiler:Tsumugu is forced to topple spiked pillars on her]] releasing enough blood to create a ''geyser''! Then came episode 21, [[spoiler:where she rips off Junketsu as if it were her own skin, resulting in an absurd shower of blood.]]
* PajamaCladHero: For the duration of episode 4, since she's forced to go to school at 4 in the morning
crash while Senketsu's being washed.
* ParentalAbandonment: Her mother died when she was little, and she lived in a boarding school away from her father right up until he was murdered. It's still [[spoiler: much better than what her biological parents did to her]].
* PowerLimiter: Done unconsciously. During her first two fights using Senketsu, she only has access to a fraction of the power he could grant her due to her embarrassment over how revealing the outfit is. Once she is able to embrace her own body, and thus stop being embarrassed over the outfit, she is able to access his full potential.
** The details are not explained but it seems like she had another one on her natural power. When [[spoiler:Ragyo put her under MindControl]] that limiter too was taken off and she was actually capable of [[spoiler:going toe to toe against transformed Satsuki]] without even activating Senketsu.
* PowerStrainBlackout: Before learning how to equip him properly, she passes out whenever Senketsu drinks too much blood.
* PragmaticHero: Ryuko has no qualms about using sneak attacks, or attacking enemies before they are prepared.
* AProtagonistIsRyu: A rare female example, though the "Ryu" in her name means "stream" rather than "dragon". Other than that, she fits this trope perfectly with her [[HotBlooded feistiness]] and intense rivalry with [[TheRival Satsuki Kiryuin]] who, ironically, ''does'' have the character for "dragon" in her name.
** Double fits this trope in that her [[FridgeBrilliance rightful name]] is Ryuko [[spoiler:Kiryuin]].
* RageAgainstTheMentor: Does not appreciate Aikuro's pre-episode 16 [[YouAreNotReady You Are Not Ready]] attitude, and is skeptical that he's told her the full truth after the revelations of episodes 18 and 19 [[spoiler: that she's a Life Fiber/human hybrid, she's Ragyo Kiryuin's daughter, Satsuki's her sister, and Isshin Matoi was really Soichiro Kiryuin]].
* RangedEmergencyWeapon: By using a wire leash, she can hurl her Scissor Blade as a ranged attack.
* RedBaron: She's infamous as the "Kanto Vagabond" and the "[[SenselessViolins Guitar Case Drifter]]".
* RedOniBlueOni: The vengeful, HotBlooded and defiant Red Oni to Satsuki's Blue Oni. Incidentally, her Kamui (Senketsu) has red highlights whereas Satsuki's has blue.
** Senketsu also serves as the Blue Oni when Satsuki isn't present.
* RefusalOfTheCall: After knowing the truth about Senketsu, Nudist Beach, COVERS, and the Primordial Life Fiber, she refuses the role because no one besides herself even considered Senketsu's feelings on [[spoiler: fighting his own kind.]]
* ReluctantFanserviceGirl: She's mortified by Senketsu's skimpy armored form.
[[DistractedByTheSexy distracted]]. It later turns out this prevents her from unleashing his full potential, forcing him to drink more is intentional.
* MonsterOfTheWeek: For the one and only episode she appears in, she stirs quite a commotion, mainly because
of her blood just to stay active, which in turn exhausts true identity.
* TheMole: Her job entails going undercover as an ordinary student and setting up traps based on their behavior.
* NoblewomansLaugh: [[EvilLaugh KYAHOHOHOHO!]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: It's the first tell-tale sign she's really no good.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: A staple of hers once she shows
her in battle. Once she embraces her own body, she is able to share it with Senketsu more evenly.
**
true colors.
*
ShamelessFanserviceGirl: The direct result of the above, [[DownplayedTrope though Lampshaded by Senketsu; she still won't tolerate guys trying to get some eye candy.]]
* RightHandOfDoom: Ryuko gains a grotesquely bloated left arm when she [[spoiler: gives into her fury and overwhelms Senketsu]] in episode 12.
* RivalsTeamUp: In episode 22.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: She's on one to avenge the death of her father.
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: With Mako.
* SanitySlippage: After [[WhamEpisode Episode 18]], it seems her sanity deteriorates with every episode. It all culminates in her being [[spoiler: brainwashed into an AxCrazy sociopath]] in episode 20.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Wears [[spoiler: Senketsu's last remaining piece]] as one in episode 14.
* SecondHourSuperpower: She taps into Senketsu's full power as early as episode 3 once she learns to accept his skimpiness. She only keeps getting more and more powerful from there.
* SecondYearProtagonist: She's in her second year of high school.
* SecretLegacy: Twice over. First through Isshin, who [[spoiler:founded Nudist Beach]] and made Senketsu especially for her, and then as revealed in episode 18 [[spoiler:she's really Ragyo Kiryuin's lost daughter]].
* SeenItAll: Slowly develops into this. At the start of the series she's as weirded out by Mako's antics as everyone else and can't help but blush at Mikisugi's stripping; later on she can predict what's going on in Mako's head and is barely fazed by a whole army of nude guys.
* SheatheYourSword: In episode 7, she deactivates Senketsu and lowers her weapon to get Mako to stop fighting her.
* ShesBack
** She recovers from her HeroicBSOD in episode 13,
has absolutely no shame, which is promptly [[ExploitedTrope exploited]], [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]], why she can wear him so easily.
* TheStarscream: After growing sick
and [[SubvertedTrope subverted]]; [[spoiler: Nui got her back on her feet just for a chance to continue tired of their battle, and even then, Ryuko hasn't fully overcome her fears and holds back, leading to Senketsu getting torn to shreds.]] It only happens for real two episodes later, when job, she [[spoiler:recovers all of Senketsu's pieces.]]
** After yet another HeroicBSOD in episode 19, which was combined with DespairEventHorizon and [[spoiler:an involuntary FaceHeelTurn,]] she pulls out all the stops and [[spoiler:breaks free from Ragyo's FakeMemories]] in Episode 21, [[spoiler:tearing Junketsu
concocts a plan to shreds in the process.]]
* SkunkStripe: Has a single red streak in her dark blue hair. [[spoiler:It's also a Life Fiber blade.]] She gains more of them the more she draws on Senketsu's power.
* SlasherSmile: As Episode 20 demonstrates, Ryuko can pull off ''terrifying'' ones. Being [[spoiler:brainwashed by Ragyo]] has a lot to do with it, but still...
* SmugSuper: The more powerful she becomes and the easier she knocks her opponents down, the cockier she gets. Senketsu does call her out in episode 5, but it only barely sticks after [[WakeUpCallBoss Tsumugu]] and later Sanageyama take her out.
* SpeedEchoes: Ryuko is fast enough to create these with Senketsu's help.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Senketsu's base form barely covers anything.
** Subverted when [[spoiler: she wears Junketsu post-FaceHeelTurn]], which is the most modest Kamui transformation yet.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: There are two distinct sides to Ryuko's personality: the side that's driven by stone-cold vengeance to slaughter the Honnouji Academy Student Council, and the side that just wants to enjoy eating lunch with her best friend.
* SuperMode: When she finally achieves the perfect Synchronization with Senketsu, her hair and the lines on Senketsu begin to glow and she becomes so fast that she leaves [[SpeedEchoes after-images.]]
* SuperSpeed: Nearly every opponent--including
overthrow Satsuki herself--has expressed shock at Ryuko's tremendous speed while wearing Senketsu.
** FragileSpeedster[=/=]GlassCannon: Her strength and speed are top notch, but her defenses are quite low, evidenced by the fact that she takes damage from attacks coming from three-star Goku uniforms, which are considerably weaker than a Kamui, and the fact that Junketsu can pierce through Senketsu's defense.
* ThemeNaming: "Matoi" means "to wear".
* ThongOfShielding: Her suspenders ride up her backside just like an actual thong. Some shots show she [[PantyShot still wears panties]] under Senketsu.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Tomboy to Mako's Girly Girl.
** She's also the Tomboy to ''Nui's'' Girly Girl, though in that case the relationship isn't exactly a friendly one.
* TomboyishSidetails: She gains a pair of these whenever she activates Senketsu.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Lemons, if episode 1 and the opening are anything to go by. She even eats the skin!
* TragicKeepsake: Her Scissor Blade is the very same one used to kill her father. She also considers Senketsu to be this, since he was made by her dad.
* TransformationSequence: Complete with {{Gainaxing}}.
* TraumaCongaLine: It feels like episodes 18 and on are dedicated to just how much shit can be thrown at Ryuko. First, she finds out that Ragyo [[spoiler:is her mother,]] [[BeatStillMyHeart in the worst possible way no less.]] Then, she discovers that [[spoiler: she isn't human.]] And finally she is {{Mind Rape}}d into [[spoiler: wearing Junketsu.]]
* TrueCompanions: With Senketsu and Mako, though on separate terms since Mako doesn't know Senketsu is alive. Later on, Nudist Beach, [[spoiler:Satsuki and the Elite Four also join her circle of friends]].
* UglyGuysHotDaughter: [[ZigZaggingTrope Zigzagged.]] Hell, her dad looks old enough to be her ''grandfather''. Then it was revealed that [[spoiler: she was actually Ragyo Kiryuin's daughter, which utterly confused the idea that she could possibly be his daughter. Then it was revealed that she actually was his daughter. Not only that, but her father was very good-looking, but purposely changed his looks to hide from his wife.]]
* {{Underboobs}}: While Senketsu is transformed.
* UnskilledButStrong: Shares this with Senketsu in early episodes. There are few better ways to describe someone wearing a 100% Life Fiber uniform that some subs translate
as a "Godrobe," (which, by the way, is probably not an exaggeration) but struggles against people wearing 20% Life Fiber. She and Senketsu get better, though. [[DegradedBoss Lord,]] [[CurbStompBattle do they]] [[TookALevelInBadass get better.]] Especially after consuming all that Life Fiber.
* UnstoppableRage: She ''completely'' flips her lid when she meets her father's killer, [[spoiler:Nui Harime]], which transforms her in a [[spoiler: [[BodyHorror very terrible manner]] that causes her to [[OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank lose a nearly fatal amount of blood]], nearly dying if [[BigDamnHeroes it weren't for Mako]]]].
* UnwittingPawn: Brought about by Satsuki in episode 7, who uses her newly founded Fight Club to weed out all undesirable students at the academy so she can restructure the
Student Council to President using Senketsu. Once her liking.
** Happens again after episode 12, where Satsuki reveals that both the Naturals Election and Ryuko's battles with the Elite Four allowed
treachery is exposed, Gamagoori expels her to create better Goku Uniforms, finally giving her the power to take over all the schools in Japan.
** Satsuki reveals that initially her plan was to simply to use Ryuko [[spoiler:in her quest to defeat Ragyo]].
for good.
* VaginaDentata: Her ThemeNaming: "Mai" is a kind of linen robe.
* TrapMaster: Helped build an
entire waistline turns into a massive mouth with sharp teeth when [[spoiler: she goes berserk.]]
* WallRun: She can run up vertical surfaces without activating Senketsu, as demonstrated at
''amusement park'' of traps throughout the end of the Naturals Election.
city!
* WorthyOpponent: Satsuki considers Ryuko to be this.
** Sanageyama also sees her as this, outright proclaiming he refuses to die until he gets even with her.
* WhoWearsShortShorts: Her skirt transforms into a combination of skirt and shorts (shorts in the middle, skirt in the sides)
TheUnchosenOne: Subverted when she puts on Senketsu and easily activates Senketsu.
* WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises: Noticeably sports them when [[spoiler:under Junketsu's control, being brainwashed

* WouldHurtAChild: Ryuko
master the skimpy power of Senketsu within seconds, that doesn't hesitate to hit Mataro, who is a child, if he peeps her. {{Justified|Trope}}, since Mataro is a pervert, and Ryuko does ''not'' tolerate perverts. She also beat up Mataro's gang when they picked a fight with her, though she was probably holding back a lot when she did.
* YouKilledMyFather: She's looking for the woman responsible. When she does, she's...[[UnstoppableRage not happy]].
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade-A when

A No-Star student and former member of
the Student Council, Ryuko finds this living SailorFuku beneath her house. Named Senketsu[[note]]"Fresh Blood"[[/note]] by Ryuko, he is a garment known as a Kamui[[note]]"God Robe"[[/note]] that grants its wearer phenomenal abilities in exchange for their blood. He was made by Ryuko's father Isshin, though he can't remember much more than that.Newspaper Club, suspended from Honnouji Academy after trying to start an insurrection against Satsuki through the school paper.



* AdaptiveAbility: During the King of the Hill Final Battle, Senketsu demonstrates the ability to evolve to counteract each of the Elite Four's tricks: for Gamagoori's binds, he sprouts blades to shred them; for Inumuta's invisibility, he turns into a [[GiantEyeOfDoom massive eye]] so Ryuko can pull an AreaOfEffect attack to hit him; and for Jakuzure's flying tank, he turns into a [[DeathFromAbove jump jet]].
* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Averted. Senketsu is the ''only'' Kamui seen thus far who isn't as malevolent as they are believed to be, especially when compared to the likes of Junketsu, who is pretty much feral, and the Kamui that devoured Kinue.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: At the end of episode 15, he demonstrates the ability to merge his WolverineClaws into this when Ryuko drops her Scissor.
* BloodLust: He feeds on Ryuko's blood to keep himself awake. This thirst becomes more intense the more he's starved, driving him to force himself on Ryuko during their first encounter after he tastes her blood for the first time in years. After getting to know Ryuko, he tries to keep this bloodlust under control.[[spoiler: Episode 12 shows what happens if he's overfed blood with too much rage and he fails to keep control, and the results are [[BodyHorror not pretty]].]]
* BloodOath: Of a sort with Ryuko, seeing as they are TrueCompanions and he requires to drink her blood to activate.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Being a sapient outfit, he has an odd sense of insults and compliments, being very hurt when called ugly, and bursting into tears when Ryuko says he's warm and comfortable.
* BodyHorror: During episode 12, when [[spoiler: Ryuko's UnstoppableRage at Nui completely overwhelms him]], he transforms into a screaming behemoth form of his original consumption transformation sequence. The monstrosity he and Ryuko become would look right in place with ''Film/TheThing1982'' or screaming beside [[NeonGenesisEvangelion a berserking Unit-01.]]
* BrutalHonesty: He lectures Ryuko on everything, from her impulsiveness to her BMI.
* ButtMonkey: A lot less than Ryuko, but is subject to this by those who don't realize he's alive, especially when put through the wash.
* ChainmailBikini: While Senketsu may not cover much, his protection still explicitly extends to the rest of Ryuko's skin. Justified by the fact that his transformation also involves partial fusion with Ryuko.
* CustomUniform: Episode 16 revealed that Isshin made him specifically for Ryuko to use.
* DeathOfAThousandCuts: Falls victim to this at the hands of Nui Harime when she plays a disguised WoundedGazelleGambit to corner Ryuko.
* DetachmentCombat: He's a two-piece uniform, so he splits to [[spoiler:avoid Nui's attack]] in episode 22.
* DisneyDeath: He at one points ends up sliced up into dozens of pieces, though Ryuko is able to put him back together.
* EmpathicWeapon: Usually only acts as strength-enhancing armor for Ryuko, but becomes a weapon himself when using Senketsu Senjin.
* EveryoneHasStandards: He refuses to let Maiko Ogure wear him, despite the latter having absolutely no shame, a vital requirement for working with him. He even [[VomitIndiscretionShot spits Maiko's blood out of his system when he's finally undone from her]].
* EvolvingWeapon: Apparently evolving too fast, according to Aikuro.
* EyepatchOfPower: His right eye is covered with a scarred patch.
* FrillyUpgrade: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]]; he becomes more jagged-looking when Ryuko finally embraces his skimpy design.

** In episode 4, when the Head of Trap Development puts him on to use against Ryuko, he stiffens up to keep his unwanted wearer from attacking. He then spits out the blood when he's taken off, earning him a thank you from Ryuko for not "cheating" on her.
** In episode 5, he leaps off of Ryuko to [[TakingTheBullet take the bullet for her against Tsumugu, and then threatens him into backing off. This act of loyalty causes Ryuko to see him as a friend and not just an outfit]].
** In episode 12, Senketsu [[GenreSavvy sees through Nui's ploy to exploit Ryuko's RoaringRampageOfRevenge against them by causing him to lose control and go into a blood rage due to Ryuko's intensified emotions almost immediately]], and repeatedly tries to dissuade Ryuko for her sake.

** In episode 13, it's revealed that it wasn't Senketsu who took control of Ryuko but rather Ryuko overpowering and absorbing Senketsu's consciousness into herself when she had her HeroicRROD, causing Senketsu extreme agony which Ryuko described as him crying.

* AdaptiveAbility: During AmusingInjuries: His beatdowns from the King of the Hill Final Battle, Senketsu demonstrates the ability to evolve to counteract each of the Elite Four's tricks: for Gamagoori's binds, he sprouts blades to shred them; for Inumuta's invisibility, he turns into a [[GiantEyeOfDoom massive eye]] so Ryuko can pull an AreaOfEffect attack to hit him; and for Jakuzure's flying tank, he turns into a [[DeathFromAbove jump jet]].

!!Mako Mankanshoku
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screen_shot_2013-10-05_at_3_11_369.jpeg
->"''Winning with friendship means winning at life!''"

->Voiced by: Creator/AyaSuzaki

A second year No-Star student at Honnouji Academy who becomes Ryuko's best (and only) friend as soon as the two meet. She is a complete and utter airhead whose odd and overly-energetic antics never cease to baffle everyone around her. Nevertheless, she has a good heart and provides Ryuko with invaluable moral support.
----
* ActionSurvivor: She acts like she'd be better suited for a light-hearted slice-of-life comedy than a testosterone-packed action drama.
* AlliterativeName: '''Ma'''ko '''Ma'''nkanshoku. Perfect for a quirky best friend.
* AmbiguouslyGay: She can get awfully clingy around her "best friend", at one point ranting about how perfect Ryuko's breasts are and how she wants to see them on display.
* AmbitionIsEvil: When Mako becomes the Fight Club President and moves her family up the social ladder, she becomes so determined to keep her family's lives comfortable that she fights Ryuko so she can become a Three-Star student.
* AmusingInjuries: She gets hit in the face with a flurry of tennis balls until it's literally ''covered'' in bumps.
* AsleepInClass: To the point of RunningGag; not even ten seconds into class, and she starts snoring.
* {{Badass}}: No, seriously. The fact she can live in a CrapsackWorld where being late for school is punishable by death, yet still come to school with a smile, makes this girl ''hardcore''.
** BadassNormal: She's only a No-Star student, yet she can face ''Satsuki herself'' without an ounce of fear. She even successfully snaps Ryuko out of her HeroicRROD despite facing the berserk Ryuko, Junketsu Satsuki and Nui Harime.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: Becomes one briefly in episode 7 when she gets promoted to a Two-Star student. [[spoiler:She later gets the uniform back in episode 22]].
* BeatTheCurseOutOfHim: In episode 12, when Ryuko merges with Senketsu into a rampaging monster, Mako gives her a good solid smack to her head that returns her body to normal... [[AngerBornOfWorry then she]] [[FunnyMoments smacks her]] [[HeartwarmingMoments some more]].
** Does so again in [[spoiler:episode 21 by donning Senketsu and entering Ryuko's mind somehow. She proceeds to help Ryuko escape being BrainwashedAndCrazy.]]
* BewareTheSillyOnes: She may be sweet and silly, but as episode 7 shows, she can be quite ruthless when someone gets in the way of something she wants, even if that someone is her best friend.
* BigEater: She eats even while class is still going, and considers being deployed to Osaka a chance to sample their local delicacies.
* BookDumb: Mikisugi is amazed she managed to get to high school. It's implied that she can't even read kanji.
* BrilliantButLazy: She doesn't normally show this, but when she wants something, she ''will'' pull out all the stops just to get it. Noted examples are when she catches [[AbnormalAmmo weaponized paper currency]] [[BulletCatch with her bare hands]] because she wanted to eat all the good Osakan food and her successful tenure as the Fight Club president to give her family a better life.
* BulletCatch: During episode 14, Mako catches rapid-fire [[AbnormalAmmo weaponized paper currency]] without a Goku Uniform, because she ''really'' wants that money.
* ButtMonkey: Poor Mako has it hard when it comes to the Student Council.
** IronButtMonkey: The sheer amount of punishment she endures would be nightmarish if it weren't so cartoonish.
* CallingTheOldManOut: In episode 7, Mako calls her family ([[MyGodWhatHaveIDone herself included]]) "the worst" for cheering her on in her fight to the death with Ryuko instead of trying to stop her.
* ChewbaccaDefense: Mako is the reigning queen of stunning opponents into silence through InsaneTrollLogic, even members of the Elite Four.
* ChivalrousPervert: With Ryuko, though not to the extent of the male members of her family.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: She sings using a banana peel as a microphone, just to name one of the many, ''many'' odd things she does.
* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: On her own, one would never suspect she attends a school that forces her to live in a slum and punishes misbehavior with death.
* CoolDownHug: Gives one to the mutated, rampaging Ryuko/Senketsu monster in episode 12, cooling her down. Literally; [[VisualPun her body is piping hot, and hugging her burns Mako's skin.]]
* CorruptTheCutie: Her promotion as Fight Club President causes her to become blinded by greed, though she doesn't realize it as she does it to provide for her family.
* CovertPervert: When seeing Ryuko's {{Stripperific}} outfit, she can't help but stare despite her (poor) attempts at averting her eyes.
** Her reaction to learning that Ryuko's father founded Nudist Beach? Imagining said founder playing around with naked girls on a beach.
* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: In episode 3, after Ryuko is beaten by Satsuki and has a [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech "Reason You Suck" Speech]] delivered to her, Mako suggests that Ryuko strip down and prove that she's sexier than Satsuki. This gives Ryuko the idea and resolve to think of wearing Senketsu as a second skin instead of just a really embarrassingly skimpy outfit, which gives her a power boost.
* DamselInDistress: She often winds up in a bind with the Student Council one way or another, though Ryuko's always there to help her out.
* DarkActionGirl: Briefly becomes one in episode 7 once she gets a Two-Star Goku Uniform.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: "People die when they're killed by blood loss!"
* FriendlessBackground: Mako says that before Ryuko transferred to Honnouji, the only friends she had were [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} the ones in her head]].
* FunPersonified: Long story short, this girl is a walking CrowningMomentOfFunny. She always tries to lighten the mood and every time she opens her mouth, you can be sure that she will say something crazy, or funny, or (most often) both sooner than later.
* GagBoobs: The bustiest of the girls, hardly ever wears a bra, and tends to jump around and get turned upside-down a lot.
* GeniusDitz: She's geographically challenged (she thinks the three major cities of Japan's Kansai region are the three major islands around Japan) and is implied to be illiterate (she skips all the kanji while reading a newspaper headline), yet she can present [[ChewbaccaDefense outlandish defenses]] like no one's business.
* GenkiGirl: Whenever she's not [[{{Sleepyhead}} sleeping]].
* HamToHamCombat: She challenges Gamagoori to a cheering competition for their respective sides during the King of the Hill Final Battle.
* HeelRealization: During her stint as the Fight Club President in episode 7, Mako finds that she and her family seem much happier having their own apartment outside the slums, and fights Ryuko after Satsuki promises her a Three-Star uniform if she wins. It's only until Ryuko stops putting up a fight that Mako sees just how corrupted with greed she and her family have become.
* HeroicWillpower: Rather than surrender to the power of her Two-Star Goku Uniform and kill Ryuko so she can continue to live wealthily in episode 7, Mako remains in enough control to hold back and overcome her own desires.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Ryuko. Although in her case, the "heterosexual" part is... [[AmbiguouslyGay ambiguous]] to say the least.
* HitMeDammit: Boldly stands in front of a Takarada trooper and orders him to shoot her with [[AbnormalAmmo money]]. [[BulletCatch She catches every single bill]] [[ScrewTheWarWerePartying then heads off to buy]] [[BigEater every single Osakan food she can see.]]
* InelegantBlubbering: Tears slide down her face in huge globs and form puddles at her feet when she cries.
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: She doesn't have any problem being in the buff and is perfectly oblivious to the reactions of others.
* InsigniaRipOffRitual: After a stint as a Two-Star student in episode 7, she decides that her friendship with Ryuko is more important than her social standing and rips off her uniform for Ryuko to destroy.
* InTheBlood: The more is shown about Mankanshoku family the more it's obvious that she isn't the only {{Cloudcuckoolander}} in the family, even the dog is crazy.
* ItMakesSenseInContext: Some of the stuff she says actually makes sense. For example, she claims that Ryuko won a tennis match because she saved her from being executed by the Tennis Club, which was Ryuko's main concern.
* {{Leitmotif}}: The distinctive "Hallelujah" chorus from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messiah_(Handel) Handel's Messiah]] can be heard whenever she starts her... [[SimpleMindedWisdom unusually]] [[ChewbaccaDefense inspirational speeches]].
** There is also her more traditional theme, "Light Your Heart Up", which is about [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship how much she enjoys being Ryuko's friend]].
* MotorMouth: She is known to give long-winded rants almost OncePerEpisode.
* MsExposition: She helps get Ryuko up to speed on the happenings at Honnouji Academy.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Her reaction when she nearly kills Ryuko just so she can be promoted to a Three-Star student.
* NaiveEverygirl: Her singular ''codifying'' character trait in the entire series. Whether it's interrupting a heated battle to deliver a [[MidBattleTeaBreak necessary speech about the importance of cross dressing]] or being the only person able to calm down a berserk Ryuko, Mako's naivety combined with her unflagging optimism is the show's continuing source of humor, as well as heart.
* NiceGirl: She might be [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} completely bananas]], but she's also sweet, caring and loyal to her friends.
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: She sings [[LyricalDissonance a cheerful road song about going on a drive to Hell]].
* NotHerself: Ryuko notes how Mako becomes less and less like her usual chipper self after becoming the Fight Club president. First she becomes increasingly formal and smug, and when she gets a Two-Star uniform, she is noticeably more brutal and doesn't even crack a smile.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Towards Ryuko, frequently glomping and groping her. She also has no problems treating Gamgoori like a climbing frame.
* OddNameOut: Her name is written with kana, instead of kanji like the majority of the cast.
* OffscreenTeleportation: On No-Late Day she manages to catch Gamagoori completely off-guard by popping up out of nowhere on the podium next to where he's standing. She does it again on Ryuko, [[spoiler:in her MentalWorld no less!]]
* OnlyFriend: She's the only student in the entire school who talks to Ryuko without trying to kill her or get under her skin.
* ThePollyanna: She hardly ever seems aware she's in a school run by a fascist student body.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Her friendship with Ryuko is ultimately what saves [[spoiler:the latter from staying brainwashed by Junketsu.]]
* PluckyComicRelief: Often she'll interrupt very dramatic moments to lighten the atmosphere and (humorously) encourage Ryuko.
* PluckyGirl: She always comes out of any situation with a smile on her face, ''no matter what''. She's pushed to her limits when sharing a stand with the demoted Elite Four while cheering Ryuko on during the King of the Hill Final Battle, resorting in her cheering for ''herself'' so she won't crack under the pressure.
* RapidFireFisticuffs: How she [[BulletCatch snatches]] [[AbnormalAmmo all the paper bills shot at her]], complete with "ATATATATATA!!!"
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: With Ryuko. Although on her part, the attraction [[{{Nosebleed}} might not be entirely platonic]].
* SayMyName: There have been two instances wherein Ryuko's life has been in danger and Mako resorts to yelling her name [[OverlyLongGag over and over and over]].
* ScrewTheWarWerePartying: Satsuki and her lackeys are busy conquering Osaka (and Kobe and Kyoto) and things are going up in flames. Ryuko is going on a desperate trip to recover Senketsu's missing pieces. Aikuro has dropped his teacher guise and returned to being a Nudist Beach operative. And Mako? [[WhileRomeBurns She's on a culinary trip through the aforementioned burning Osaka]].
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: When held upside-down, she complains that she forgot to bring her sexy panties, and that's just the ''first episode''. For someone who wears normal clothes, she also tends to show off a lot of {{Underboobs}}.
* SimpleMindedWisdom: Her ramblings can be profound when viewed at the right angle.
-->'''Mako''': My life's traffic lights are always yellow!\\
'''Gamagoori''': "In life, proceed in caution," eh?
* SkewedPriorities: She has several priorities when caught in a death trap, and her life is never one of them.
** Episode 1: She's less concerned about being fried alive in boiling oil and more concerned about how the oil will [[WetSariScene make her clothes see-through]], and that she wasn't wearing her sexy panties that day.
** Episode 5: She's afraid that if the Biology Club slices her belly open, it would ruin the lunch she stashed in her clothes.
** Episode 12: She considers the burns she suffers from giving a CoolDownHug to Ryuko a free tan.
** Episode 16: When Mikisugi asks her if she has the resolve to join them in battle she says that she doesn't... [[ComicallyMissingThePoint have the resolve to get naked]], but will follow them because she is Ryuko's friend.
* {{Sleepyhead}}: Shockingly enough for a GenkiGirl such as herself, she can fall asleep at the drop of a hat, even when cheering for Ryuko in the middle of a fight.
* StrikeMeDown: Tells [[spoiler:a brainwashed Ryuko inside her MentalWorld]] to kill her if the latter insists on [[spoiler:staying cooped up in her FakeMemories, which Ryuko does, but ultimately snaps out of her funk, with Mako relatively unharmed.]]
* TemporarilyAVillain: In episode 7, she gets promoted to a Two-Star Club President and fights Ryuko to become the school's fifth Three-Star student and maintain her family's new-found wealth and social status, thinking they'd be much happier than when they were poor. However, she resigns once she realizes that she'll kill her best friend if she keeps things up.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Girly Girl to Ryuko's Tomboy.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: Where she keeps her lunchbox, though considering its size, it's more like {{hammerspace}}.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: She accepts the job as Fight Club President to improve her standing in the school, and her family's social standing with it, no matter what. So when Ryuko's resignation threatens to send her family back to the slums, and since the reward for any club president to beat her is a Three-Star uniform, the most logical conclusion to her is to fall out with her friend.
* WhileRomeBurns: She actually goes on a sightseeing tour of Osaka as the city goes up in flames during Satsuki's invasion.
* WillfullyWeak: She ''greatly'' holds back while fighting Ryuko in a Two-Star Goku Uniform in episode 7, as she could easily punch a crater in the ground with her uniform's powers, but subconsciously fears killing Ryuko if she were to go all out.
** FightingFromTheInside: Ryuko pretty much names this trope word-for-word after said fight. [[DownplayedTrope It's more like a case of]] ConflictingLoyalty than direct MindControl, though. Note that HeroicWillpower is still in full effect.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: She punishes her younger brother by putting him through a number of wrestling holds.

->"''Fear is freedom! Subjugation is liberation! Contradiction is truth! These are the truths of this world! Surrender to these truths, you pigs in human clothing!''"

->Voiced by: Creator/RyokaYuzuki

The StudentCouncilPresident of Honnouji Academy, and Ryuko's [[TheRival arch rival]]. Her goal: total WorldDomination through the superpower-endowing Goku Uniforms. Her sword, Bakuzan, is enough to withstand even the awe-inspiring might of Ryuko's Kamui, Senketsu. Not one to let herself get outdone by anyone, however, she ends up donning her own Kamui, Junketsu,[[note]]"Purity"[[/note]] to counter Ryuko's.
----
* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Her sword is keener than the Scissor Blades and it's able to easily cut Senketsu.
* AbusiveParents: The first time we see her and her mother together in person on screen, Ragyo fondles her body with disturbing level of intimacy for some reason. She also gets even more handsy in episode 16, when she bathes Satsuki in herbs to to cleanse her chakra gates and increase her affinity for her Kamui. Which may sound relatively innocuous, if your mind isn't dirty enough, but bear in mind-Satsuki was ''naked'', making rather...[[{{Squick}} suggestive]] [[TheImmodestOrgasm noises]], and the Root Chakra gate is located in the groin.
* AintTooProudToBeg: By Episode 22, she becomes humble enough to ask [[spoiler:Ryuko to join forces with her and defeat Ragyo.]]
* AntiVillain: A combination of types [[NobleDemon I]] and [[WellIntentionedExtremist III]]. She's a complete and utter despot with [[TheSocialDarwinist disdain for the weak]], but only because she believes the world to be in complete disarray unless she's in control. She also shows respect and even [[PetTheDog kindness]] to those who prove their strength and resolve. So it shouldn't come as much of a surprise when she later turns out to be an...
** AntiHero: Of the GoodIsNotNice and PragmaticHero variety, everything she has done is to make her army stronger and complete the façade of allegiance, in order to defeat [[spoiler: her mother and free the world from the Life Fibers.]]
* ArchEnemy: Out of everyone in the school, Satsuki is at the very top of Ryuko's hit list since she believes she knows what happened to her father, at least before the actual culprit entered the picture. Afterwards, the antagonism dies down somewhat between them and Satsuki straddles the line between this and being TheRival. [[spoiler:Later on she becomes an ally and teams up with Ryuko in order to defeat their mother Ragyo.]]
* {{Badass}}: Able to go toe to toe with Ryuko, and is a credible enough threat to make Nui back down when necessary.
** BadassBack: One of the few female characters who can successfully pull this off [[CurbStompBattle very well]].
** BadassInCharge: The absolute ruler of Honnouji Academy.
** BadassNormal: Is able to put Ryuko (wearing Senketsu) in a pinch without a Goku Uniform or Kamui.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: Bakuzan, which can cut Life Fibers, is still a threat to Senketsu when combined with Satsuki's swordsmanship.
** BadassInDistress: Episode 19 has her [[spoiler:captured by Ragyo, but Satsuki quickly escapes.]]
** BroughtDownToBadass: [[spoiler: Thanks to some toe blades, she is still able to one shot Covers even while completely naked. She is also able to fight evenly with Nui without a Kamui]]
** BadassLongcoat: Briefly dons one in episode 22.
* BigOlEyebrows: Her eyebrows are quite prominent for a girl.
* BoringButPractical: In a fight which involved sentient alien school uniforms, shadow clones, optical camouflage, mini-mecha etc. she created an opening she needed to [[spoiler:decapitate Ragyo]] by blinding them with her sword's reflection, one of the oldest sword tricks in the book.
* BreakTheHaughty: Episode 18 has not been kind to her. Neither has any episode after that.
* CallingYourAttacks: How she's able to utilize [[spoiler: Senketsu's]] transformation forms during episode 21. She even invents one for him on the spot. This is because [[spoiler: she cannot communicate with Senketsu the way Ryuko can, thus has to call out her desired transformation. Ryuko points out that this method has a slight timing lag, thus is easier to stop.]]
* CastingGag: Physically she bears a striking resemblance to Arashi from ''Manga/{{X1999}}'', one of Ryoka Yuzuki's famous earlier roles.
* CharacterDevelopment: Initially was an arrogant SocialDarwinist who had no problems using people as pawns for her plans, and while her goals were later revealed to be noble, she acknowledges that treating people that way made her no different from her mother and [[spoiler: humbly asks Ryuko for her help in defeating Ragyo.]] Afterwards, she mellows out significantly sporting a far more relaxed expression and even smiles and laughs a lot more.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: There is no indication that there is [[BadassNormal anything abnormal]] about her fighting prowess and yet she can crush steel armour with mere strikes of her sheathed sword.
* ChildhoodFriends: She's been friends with Jakuzure since before kindergarten.
* CleavageWindow: While wearing Junketsu.
* CombatStilettos: Multiple shots are dedicated to her striking her high heels on the ground whenever she makes a DynamicEntry. She's even delivers a few ultra-powered kicks during her fights with Ryuko.
* ContraltoOfDanger: Satsuki along with Ragyo have noticeably prominent deep voices compared to the rest of the women in the cast, especially when it comes to exercising their authority over others, although they have their share of action as well.
* CoolBigSis: It takes 22 episodes but [[spoiler:Ryuko eventually considers Satsuki this, though she struggles to actually call her so.]]
* CoolSword: Secret Sword Bakuzan, a katana so sharp that it can cut Kamui and send people flying with the sheer RazorWind it emits when swung.
** BlackSwordsAreBetter: Bakuzan has a very dark finish, seen during the rare times she's drawn and wreaked havoc with it. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, it's not quite good enough; Ragyo is able to shatter it.]]
** KatanasAreJustBetter: Her sword can cause [[RazorWind massive damage]] even if blocked, and can slice a Kamui ''without'' any Goku Uniform power boost. Subverted later on in Episode 18 however, as it is completely ineffective in killing [[spoiler: her mother, despite the fact that Satsuki first impaled her, and then cut her head off. To add to this, Ragyo easily breaks the blade with nothing but her ''fists''.]]
** WreckedWeapon: [[spoiler:Bakuzan literally snaps in half when Ragyo [[BareHandedBladeBlock blocks it with her fist.]] Bakuzan's pieces were later remade into a dagger and a sword named Gako and Kouryu respectively.]]
** DualWield: [[spoiler:By Episode 20, she managed to escape confinement on her own. Sanageyama and Nonon presented Gako and Kouryu for her to use.]]
* CrazyPrepared: Satsuki is not one to underestimate, despite it looking like everything she planned all led to episode 18. [[spoiler: Episode 19 shows that she did have a few plans in case she lost, such as rigging the stadium to blow, or got captured, where she reveals some her toenails have been replaced with the same metal the Bakuzan is made of.]]
* CurbstompBattle: Casually delivers one to Ryuko during their first fight to show just how more experienced she is with her Kamui. During [[WhamEpisode Episode 18]], [[spoiler:Ragyo inflicts a brutal one on her, reducing Satsuki to a bloody, broken husk of her former self.]] And in Episode 21, [[spoiler: she is again on the receiving end, this time against a Junketsu-wearing Ryuko, despite wearing Senketsu. But she has a plan.]]
* DaddysGirl: PlayedForDrama. [[spoiler:After his death, she takes up his plans in order to fight her mother and destroy the COVERS.]]
* DarkActionGirl: Even her most martially skilled subordinates have an infallible respect for her fighting prowess.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: This is how she recruited Gamagoori and Sanageyama, with Inumuta being a borderline case.
* DefectorFromDecadence: Ever since she was 5 years old she has been plotting [[spoiler: to destroy her mother Ragyo, the true BigBad, and eliminate the Life Fibers.]]
* DefrostingIceQueen
* {{Determinator}}: She holds strength of will and resolve in the highest of regards, and even though Junketsu puts an enormous strain on her and tries to devour her, she never lets it show in front of Ryuko or even her Elite Four. Even after [[spoiler:her lifelong planned revolution failed and she had been imprisoned on chains for an entire month, she ''still'' hasn't given up.]]
* {{Deuteragonist}}: Considering a major plot point of the series is her conflict with Ryuko, this is hardly surprising. She arguably becomes more of the protagonist in the second half of the series when her motivations are revealed, having arguably [[SpotlightStealingSquad more focus than Ryuko herself.]]
* DragonInChief: Even with [[BigBad her mother]] backing her as Honnouji Academy's board chairwoman, Satsuki acts largely independently as the main antagonist, sending her subordinates after Ryuko and using her to further her plans for WorldDomination.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: Her true motivations finally come out in episode 18. [[spoiler:Since she was 5, Satsuki's only goal had been to destroy Life Fibers and kill Ragyo.]]
* DualWielding: Starting in Episode 21, she fights using [[spoiler:Gako and Kouryu, the two blades that were made from Bakuzan's remains.]]
* EnfantTerrible: Even in kindergarden, she was known for making profound EvilOverlord speeches.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Read the above quote. She says this while addressing the entire student body atop an ''impossibly'' massive school building.
* EvilOverlord: Has the tone of this, as she plots to take over the world. [[spoiler: Revealed to be a ruse to trick the true BigBad EvilOverlord into thinking she was on their side]]
* FemmeFatalons: Sharpens her toenails into claws so she can [[spoiler:escape after being captured by her mother.]]
* FirstNameBasis: Her childhood friendship with Nonon is referenced when Satsuki uses her first name when they're alone.
** She also uses this on her mother in Episode 18, a sign of gross disrespect in Japan, which is exactly what Satsuki meant it to be.
** By episode 22, she finally calls [[spoiler: Ryuko solely by her first name, indicating her recognition of Ryuko as her little sister]].
* FullFrontalAssault: During Episode 20, she [[spoiler:escapes from her prison with just her toenails as weapons]] and cuts down a few [[spoiler:COVERS {{Mook}}s]] while naked.
* FullNameBasis: Like Ryuko does with her, Satsuki addresses Ryuko by her full name.
** LastNameBasis: Likewise, she calls her subordinates by their last names. [[VillainousFriendship The one exemption is Jakuzure]] [[HeartwarmingMoments/AnimeAndManga when they share a tender moment]].
* GodivaHair: And not just her breasts, it's long enough to cover her butt and even crotch at one point.
* GoingCommando: As a member of [[spoiler:Nudist Beach]]. She was also naked during [[spoiler:her escape from the school]].
* GoodAllAlong: In episode 17, [[spoiler: she and all of Honnouji are actually good guys trying to stop the global take over and subjection of man by Life Fibers.]]
** GoodIsNotNice: Shows no mercy in attaining her goal [[spoiler: to kill Ragyo and free mankind from Life Fibers.]]
* HairDecorations: Has small wings in her hair when Junketsu is activated.
* HazyFeelTurn: Satsuki always had her own agenda since the very beginning of the plot, it just took her seventeen episodes to get the perfect shot at [[spoiler: Ragyo's]] back.
* TheHeavy: She may not have as much power as [[BigBad her mother]] and [[spoiler:she is neither evil nor responsible for Isshin Matoi's murder]], but she's still the most prominent antagonist in the series.
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler: Even if her goals were noble, she apologizes to Ryuko when she realizes that treating people like pawns and manipulating Ryuko makes her no different than Ragyo.]]
* HeroicWillpower: Invoked by her donning Junketsu. If episode 20 is any indication, [[spoiler:Junketsu has been trying to MindRape her every time she activated it, or even every time she wore it.]] Despite that she forced Junketsu to give her power and was able to fight Ryuko on equal terms.
* HimeCut: Appropriate for someone of such regal power.
* HitlerCam: Most if not all shots of her are angled upwards. Used to great effect in as she [[YourSizeMayVary towers]] over Ryuko in episode 2 when she goes to strike her.
* HolyBacklight: Every time Satsuki steps on top of the school, her mere existence can shoot out beams of light rays fiercer than the sun, and blinds all who are below her into submission. Her mother apparently [[InTheBlood can do the same]], but with a rainbow spectrum.
* HotBlooded: When the situation calls for it, she proves that she can scream with the best of them.
* {{Hypocrite}}: In middle school, she disparages two bullies who rely on their parents' positions and connections for their power. Gamagoori points out that she's doing exactly the same thing; she counters that unlike them, she truly ''owns'' her parents' power.
** It turns out that [[spoiler: she's only doing this so that she can eventually rebel against her mother]], making this something of a subversion.
** She spends a good three-quarters of the series lambasting Ryuko for having something as small-minded and self-centered as a revenge quest fueling her one-man war against her. Then she reveals to Ragyo that [[spoiler:she originally started her rebellion plans when her father revealed what was done to her little sister and requested her to carry on his quest to stop Ragyo just before he was chased off by her]]. When Ragyo points out how petty that motivation is, Satsuki without a modicum of irony or self-awareness asserts that great causes and champions are fueled by personal desires. Of course, her original statement was made in public before witnesses, and she had a cover to maintain at the time, so whether she really believed it is suspect at best.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Satsuki feels that her actions as an EvilOverlord were completely necessary to get her to a point where she could [[spoiler: kill her mother Ragyo]]. This is also her reasoning for not holding back when fighting [[spoiler:her fellow students brainwashed to serve Ragyo]] in episode 18.
* IHaveTheHighGround: Specifically so she can look down on others from a more befitting height.
* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: [[spoiler: Against Ryuko in Episode 21. Satsuki puts her body through excessive strain to wear Senketsu to let him fight, since they both want to bring her back to her senses.]]
* {{Kiai}}: A single shout of hers is enough to blow away 500 men.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "鬼龍G@キLL",[[note]]''Kiryu ga Kill''[[/note]] an overbearing, militaristic piece.
* LightIsNotGood: Wears a bright white uniform. Runs several schools across the country like a fascist regime.
** PureIsNotGood: Her Kamui's name is Junketsu, which means "purity". Ryuko [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this:
--->'''Ryuko''': Is there anything about you that's pure?
** DarkIsNotEvil: [[spoiler: She temporarily wears Senketsu in Episode 21 in order to stop a brainwashed Ryuko.]]
* LivingBattery: [[spoiler: Ragyo plans on having Satsuki be the power source for an ultimate Kamui.]]
* LongGame: She's been building her power at Honnouji Academy for years, and [[spoiler:has waited all this time to unleash the army she's built against her mother. Ragyo and the COVERS dismantle it within minutes.]]
* MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter: Considering how her parents [[spoiler:experimented on her and her little sister]] she very much qualifies.
* ManipulativeBitch: She takes full advantage of Ryuko's arrival at her academy, using her battles with the Student Council to make the final adjustments to their Goku Uniforms to stage a full invasion of Japan, while also purging the system of any dissenters for good measure.
* MightyGlacier: Satsuki isn't exactly slow, but her strength is mostly centered on her monstrous physical strength, and her tough defenses, something Ryuko comments on during their match at Osaka.
* [[DaddysLittleVillain Mommy's Little Villain]]: Extremely ambitious and ruthless, she also inherited her charisma and love for speeches from her mother. Subverted actually because [[spoiler:it's been all a ruse to fool Ragyo so Satsuki could kill her and save humanity from Life Fibers]].
* MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours: She may be miffed that Ryuko got to wear a Kamui before her, but she boasts being the first one to master its power.
* NamedWeapons: Bakuzan, which can mean [[{{Foreshadowing}} "to cut one's ties"]].
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: "Kiryuin" contains the characters for "demon", "dragon", and "ex-empress".
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Satsuki destroys [[spoiler:Nudist Beach and Osaka on the pretext that any group which cannot defeat her Life Fiber-enhanced army would be useless against Ragyo and COVERS.]] As it turns out in Episode 18, her much-vaunted One-Stars [[spoiler:are defeated without firing a shot, in less than a minute. The crippled remnants of Nudist Beach, meanwhile, remain combat-effective a whole month later.]] Evidently someone didn't think her plan all the way through.
* NobleDemon: Even though she views weaklings as the lowest form of scum that need to be ruled by the strong (such as herself), she is shown to admire and respect people with ambition (such as Inumuta and Jakuzure) and determination (such as Gamagoori and Sanageyama) and rewards them as she sees fit. She even goes as far as giving second chances, like allowing Sanageyama to have a rematch with Ryuko [[EyeScream after he sews his eyes shut]] or [[DrivenToSuicide stopping Gamagoori from committing seppuku after he loses to Ryuko]]. In fact, she goes out of her way to protect Mako from Nui while the former attempts a CooldownHug on a rampaging Ryuko, and compliments her when she succeeds.
** Later, after [[spoiler: Senketsu is destroyed by Nui]], Satsuki has the courtesy of not only sparing Ryuko when she's practically at her whim, but after collecting most of [[spoiler: Senketsu's remains]], Satsuki allows Ryuko to keep a single piece despite presumably knowing the risks of an empowered Ryuko once again, and the fact that she could simply take it as well for the sake of removing both a threat and amplifying her regime's power.
* NotSoDifferent: For all Satsuki's speeches about her ambitions, when you discover her base motivation, it is really no different than Ryuko's. [[spoiler:She wants revenge for her father's death. Bonus points for it being the same person.]]
* TheOjou: Is treated as royalty by the student body as well as the faculty.
* OneWomanArmy: She can blow away dozens if not hundreds of opponents with her [[KiAttacks willpower]] alone. And that's ''without'' Junketsu's power.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness
** It really shows just how much strain Junketsu puts on Satsuki in episode 16. Satsuki who up until this point was always confident, grim-faced and absolutely unwavering looks like a lost, hurt little girl for a moment after taking Junketsu off.
** Satsuki's demeanor as she begins her [[spoiler:rebellion against Ragyo]] is also notable. While her baseline emotional state is rather intense, she is still extremely composed and would at most show contempt for an opponent. The sheer depth of rage and hatred she shows [[spoiler:Ragyo]] is incredible.
** Shows probably her greatest loss of composure verging on genuine fear when [[spoiler: Senketsu is sheared apart by Ryuko.]]
* OrcusOnHisThrone: {{Subverted}}; she steps down from her perch to personally fight Ryuko as soon as episode 2, even holding a proper match the very next episode. After that, however, she retires to her throne and sics the rest of her {{Mooks}} on Ryuko with the promise of fighting her again once she takes them all down. That is, until Ryuko goes berserk and starts demolishing her school.
* PerpetualFrowner: Wears a stern expression at almost all times. Until episode 22, where her expression softens up a bit.
* PetTheDog: When Sanageyama decides to fight Ryuko, he tells Satsuki to invite him for tea after he wins. Even though she made no such promise, she still honors it after he beats Ryuko, but by that point Sanageyama can sadly no longer enjoy hot beverages.
** We get one of the first indications that Satsuki isn't as bad as she pretends to be during Gamagoori's flashback when she saves a helpless student from bullies and ruthlessly punishes said bullies.
** When Gamagoori loses to Ryuko during the Naturals Election, she [[InterruptedSuicide stops his attempt at suicide.]]
** After Nui destroys Senketsu, Satsuki forces her to leave Ryuko alive, then leaves Ryuko covered in a blanket and with one remaining piece of Senketsu.
* PresidentEvil: President is in her official title, she's the main antagonist, and based on how Honnouji Academy and environ is operated, it's basically a city-state under her iron fist.
* RapunzelHair: Down past her waist.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: As if being constantly on the end of CurbStompBattle[=s=] lately wasn't enough, she is subject to lengthy speeches about how she is no where near as strong as she thinks she is, basically saying she is all talk. The fact that she was unable to use Junketsu [[spoiler: or any Kamui]] to its full potential is constantly brought up as proof of how weak and pathetic she is. Luckily her friends tend to be more pissed about these speeches than she is.
* RedHerring: Viewers thinking she was [[spoiler:Isshin's murderer]] were completely thrown off guard by episode 11. Not helping matters is that the silhouette of [[spoiler:the murderer]] looks more and more like her in Ryuko's flashbacks, though [[spoiler:the real killer]] looks closer to the silhouette in the first episode.
* RedOniBlueOni: The [[TheStoic cool]], [[WickedCultured cultured]] Blue Oni to Ryuko's Red Oni. Her Kamui even has blue highlights where Ryuko's has red. This being a WorldOfHam, however, she's prone to her own bouts of HotBlooded-ness.
* TheReveal: After seventeen episodes, it turns out [[spoiler:she has been preparing for thirteen years in order to fight her mother and destroy the Life Fibers.]]
* {{Revenge}}: Essentially her motivation for [[spoiler:starting a rebellion against her mother.]]
-->'''Satsuki''': [[spoiler:Ragyo Kiryuin!]] You shall pay for taking the lives of [[spoiler:my father Soichiro, and my little sister who was never even given a name!]]
* ReverseMole: [[WhamEpisode Episodes 17 and 18]] reveal that she has always been planning to [[spoiler:defeat her mother and stop the world take-over of the Life Fibers.]]
* TheRival: To Ryuko; they're mortal enemies, but there's still a sense of grudging, mutual respect for each other's strength between them. [[spoiler:Until episode 22, when they befriend each other and acknowledge each other as [[LongLostRelative sisters]].]]
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: Subverted; while she does have her parents' influence to thank for her position, she exploits and absorbs their power to use as her own rather than leech off of it.
** And then in [[spoiler:Episode 17, it's revealed that she's been doing this simply to gather enough strength to outright declare open rebellion against her mother and REVOCS/COVERS]].
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Unlike [[ReluctantFanserviceGirl Ryuko]], Satsuki immediately and fully embraces her Kamui's revealing form as a symbol of her mastery of its full power.
* SheathStrike: One delivered to the diaphragm is her favourite method of taking down opponents non-lethally.
* ShouldersOfDoom: Junketsu gives her massive shoulder spikes that serve as her outfit's eyes.
* ShutUpHannibal: She cranks a ''spectacular'' example of this against [[spoiler:Ragyo]] in Episode 17.
* SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset: When in her transformed state, she looks like a giant white ''hannya'' mask, with the fins as horns.
* TheSocialDarwinist: She arranges the Student Council based on their strength and superiority over other students. She even holds a "[[PunnyName Naturals Election]]"[[note]]Move the "s" over and you get "natural selection"[[/note]] after rooting all undesirable students out of her system.
* SpikesOfVillainy: Employed as a weapon; Junketsu's shoulder fins can become drill-shaped blades.
* StatuesqueStunner: Her exact height [[YourSizeMayVary varies from scene to scene]], but Satsuki's easily one of the tallest women in the show, and towers over Ryuko by at least a foot.
* StealthMentor: Was one to Ryuko and [[spoiler:Nudist Beach]] all along. All the fights and hardships she heaped on her opponents were aimed at making them strong enough to [[spoiler:help her in a fight against Ragyo]]. It's subverted however as [[spoiler:she overdid it with the damage she has done to Nudist Beach and actually weakened them which bit her in the ass later on.]]
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Ryuko's wearing Senketsu is almost ''conservative'' compared to how much skin Satsuki's shows while wearing an activated Junketsu.
* StudentCouncilPresident: [[ExaggeratedTrope Exaggerated]] [[UpToEleven to high holy hell and back]]. Not only is she in charge of the school, effectively outranking the principal, but has also dominated countless ''other'' schools across the country.
* SwordPlant: Her default position, spoofed by Mako (with an invisible sword) during her [[ChewbaccaDefense rant]] in episode 3.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Refers to herself by her full name quite a lot, usually when making a BadassBoast.
* ThongOfShielding: Again, absolutely literal. Junketsu's released form most closely resembles a sling bikini.
* [[TodayXTomorrowTheWorld Today Japan, Tomorrow The World]]: She has much of Japan in her grasp already. Once her takeover is complete, she can focus on conquering the rest of the world.
* TransformationSequence: Very much like Ryuko's.
* {{Ubermensch}}: Satsuki scoffs at society's petty standards of morality (and indecent exposure). [[spoiler:Initially as she admits she was wrong for following this philosophy.]]
* TheUnchosenOne: Possibly, Satsuki exerts great effort in wearing Junketsu and uses the phrase "Life Fiber Override" when she transforms [[spoiler: According to Ragyo, she is unfit to even wear a Kamui and thus only forces Junketsu to cooperate with her]]. Which while impressive, Ragyo points out, that [[spoiler:Satsuki's strength while wearing Junketsu pales in comparison to those who have bonded with Life Fibers such as herself and Ryuko.]]
** TheUnfavorite: After capturing [[spoiler:Satsuki, Ragyo tries to convince her of this by saying that Soichiro didn't trust Satsuki to fulfill his goals which is why he secretly raised Ryuko and gave her Senketsu and the Rending Scissors. Satsuki just ignores her.]]
* TheUnfettered: Satsuki will do anything and, if need be, go through anyone in order to achieve her goals. As she bluntly puts it, even if she has to be naked, if it serves a purpose in achieving her goals, then she doesn't really give a damn.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: She discussed this with Soroi, musing that she used hold back her opinion on how bitter Soroi made her tea, but it grew on her since he made it. Soroi apologizes for not knowing she was just humoring him, with Satsuki claiming it's fine, and that she must have been a more kind-hearted girl back then.
* VillainousFriendship: With Jakuzure, who she's known since kindergarten. It seems like a Type III until she addresses her by her first name, like she did as a kid, when she offers to transport Satsuki on her back in episode 15, firmly cementing it as a Type I:
-->'''Jakuzure:''' Just you watch, I'll catch up to her in no time!\\
'''Satsuki:''' Perhaps, but like this, you cannot get a higher eye level than mine. Can you, Nonon?\\
'''Jakuzure:''' Don't be silly.
* VillainousRescue: After Nui Harime destroys Senketsu and is about to deal the killing blow to Ryuko, Satsuki intervenes immediately before driving her off with a blatant death threat hanging over her head.
* VisionaryVillain: She's basically [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Raoh]] and [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Lordgenome]] in a school setting. To her, strength is the only virtue and the foundation of the school system she runs. Weakness is to be loathed, and weaklings to be pruned.
* WallRun: Satsuki once ''walked briskly'' up a building whilst wearing an activated Junketsu.
* WhenSheSmiles: Most of time she seems stern ([[spoiler: which makes sense considering her motivations and past.]]), [[spoiler: but when she finally came to understands her friendship with the Elite Four and that she has Ryuko as her sister with her against their mother, we get to see a really heartwarming smile.]]
* WickedCultured: Seems fond of sipping tea, and has a butler. [[spoiler:Subverted after her HeelFaceTurn, when she drinks tea with Nudist Beach.]]
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: She's had her totalitarian mindset since kindergarten.
* WorldDomination: Her ultimate goal.
* XanatosGambit: Satsuki excels at executing these on a regular basis.
** Her plot in episode 7, in which she permits Ryuko to start her own club to fight the other club presidents, ends with her able to weed out dozens of weaklings and gain an excuse to rebuild and fortify her system with a "Naturals Election". Even if that failed, it still would have ended with Ryuko being either destroyed or integrated into the system, and the one to cause it would have proven to be a worthy addition to the Student Council's inner circle.
** Episode 12 reveals another one: by pitting the students of Honnouji Academy against each other during the Naturals Election, and later having Ryuko fight the Elite Four, she was able to assess any weaknesses in their Goku Uniforms. Even though Ryuko took out her inner circle, she now possesses an upgraded arsenal capable of taking over Japan.
** Pulls yet another in episode 15. Though her armies are forced to withdraw from the Kansai region thanks to Ryuko's efforts, she uses the duel as a distraction for Jakuzure to locate and destroy the hidden Nudist Beach command center. Her enemies are left in a significantly weaker position, and the respite is much more benificial for Satsuki to regroup and rebuild.
** Episode 17 is the gambit of all her gambits. [[spoiler:Everything she did, the Naturals Election, upgrading her arsenal, the takeover of Japan, etc. was all for her [[HeelFaceTurn to rebel against Ragyo and to take down both COVERS and the Primordial Life Fiber]]. Ryuko and [[LaResistance Nudist Beach]] DidntSeeThatComing.]]
** In episode 21, despite being greatly outmatched by [[spoiler:a Junketsu-wearing Ryuko even while weaing Senketsu herself,]] she gives the Elite Four enough time to [[spoiler:try to forcefully separate Junketsu from Ryuko.]] Even after that failed, no thanks to Nui's arrival and the reveal that [[spoiler:Ryuko's entire body is tied to Junketsu,]] she still launches a last-ditch gambit by [[spoiler:making Mako wear Senketsu and making her snap Ryuko out of her brainwashing. It ultimately works.]]
* XanatosSpeedChess: At several point in the story she was forced to revise her plans in a hurry.
** In episode 12, after [[spoiler:Nui appeared and revealed that it was actually her who killed Ryuko's father.]] Satsuki confronted Ryuko and outright said that [[spoiler:it was actually her who sent Nui after Isshin, which was a lie to keep Ryuko from going after Nui.]]
** In episode 13, after [[spoiler:Nui destroys Senketsu]] Satsuki uses the opportunity in two different ways. [[spoiler: Firstly she hands out the pieces of Senketsu to her soldiers to give them a power up and gather data. Secondly she [[StealthMentor gives Ryuko an opportunity to train herself up by reclaiming the stolen pieces]].]]
** In episode 17, there is no indication that [[spoiler:she knew of the existence of the Primordial Life Fiber]], but when it was revealed to her she quickly adjusted her plans by [[spoiler:sending Iori and a Sewing Club Strike force to Kiryuin Manor to destroy the Primordial Life Fiber and COVERS]].
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade-A when wearing her Kamui, Junketsu.
[[/folder]]

!Elite Four
[[folder:General]]
The four strongest members of the Student Council hand-picked by Satsuki to act as her generals. They are all Three-Star students whose Goku Uniforms can transform into mighty suits of armor, giving them powers exceeded only by the Kamui themselves.
----
* AnimalMotifs: The first characters in their surnames ('''Gama'''goori, '''Sa'''nageyama, '''Inu'''muta, and '''Ja'''kuzure) mean "toad", "monkey", "dog", and "snake", respectively.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Invoked by their Goku Uniforms, which give students stronger powers the higher their rank. And considering their rank is the highest behind Satsuki herself, their might is unquestionable.
* BadassCrew: They'd need to be, considering Satsuki chose them to wear some of strongest kinds of Goku Uniforms around. And under her guidance they work ''incredibly'' well as a team when they have to.
* BerserkButton: None of them tolerate any insult to Satsuki, especially Gamagoori and Jakuzure.
* BroughtDownToBadass: Even after getting demoted to No-Stars and having their Goku Uniforms destroyed/confiscated in their matches with Ryuko, they still sit comfortably in the stands as the whole stadium crumbles around them, and later spring to obey Satsuki's order to evacuate the collapsing school, still in their tracksuits and/or underpants.
** Happens again in episode 19 when [[spoiler: their Goku Uniforms fall apart due to a month straight of battle with no maintenance. They are also shown to have become members of Nudist Beach.]]
** Just how badass have they become? In episode 21, [[spoiler: even without their uniforms, they're still able to fight Ryuko to a standstill and nearly defeat her. The only reason they didn't succeed was that somebody else crashed the party...]]
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Their hair and {{Transformation Sequence}}s have distinct colors:
** Gamagoori: Yellow
** Sanageyama: Green
** Inumuta: Blue
** Jakuzure: Pink
* CustomUniform: Unlike One-Star students, their Goku Uniforms are custom-made to fit their personal strengths and abilities. After losing those uniforms, they all don unique school tracksuits (except for [[ShirtlessScene Gamagoori]]); Inumuta's has a much higher collar than usual, Jakuzure's includes a beret with a skull on it, and Sanageyama's jacket is a BadassLongcoat.
** The same goes for Inumuta and Jakuzure's [[spoiler:Nudist Beach]] [[{{Stripperiffic}} "uniforms"]].
* DefeatEqualsFriendship: Gamagoori, Sanageyama, and Inumuta were all outdone by Satsuki before she made them her henchmen.
* {{Expy}}: More or less similar in personality and ability to the [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Four Generals]], and fill roughly the same role as early villains who are defeated to make way for the true villains.
* FaceFramedInShadow: In a truly villainous display, when Ragyo is about to kickstart her plan to [[spoiler:enslave humanity]]. [[spoiler:The villainous part is subverted when they are actually concealing their expressions ''from Ragyo'', who they betray right then and there]].
* FiveBadBand: With Satsuki being the BigBad, these four are as follows:
** TheDragon: Gamagoori
** TheBrute: Sanageyama
** TheEvilGenius: Inumuta
** TheDarkChick: Jakuzure
* FourIsDeath: The death of the normal students, that's for sure.
* FriendlyEnemy: When battling Ryuko they are ruthless, but outside of battle they seem to hold no hostility toward her and even compliment her abilities against other opponents. They also never fight her outside of school despite knowing where she was living. Gamagoori even gave Ryuko and Mako a ride when their scooter had run out of gas. [[spoiler: Episode 18 reveals that this is because they were using Ryuko to find weaknesses in their Goku Uniforms.]]
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: All four of them develop these in Episode 20 (colour-coded no less) when they realise Satsuki hasn't lost her will to fight.
* GoingCommando: As members of [[spoiler:Nudist Beach]] their only attire is a bandolier wrapped around their waists and strategically positioned pouches for the girls.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: They get shiny new uniforms in episode 15 with completely new transformations. Interestingly, Sanageyama and Nonon's new transformations are smaller and more compact compared to their old ones.
* NonchalantDodge: Sanageyama, Inumuta, and Jakuzure effortlessly avoid Gamagoori's wild attacks in episode 9.
* NoSell: They're not affected by the power pressure Goku Uniforms emit.
* PunchClockVillain: They're just as much mortal enemies to Ryuko as Satsuki during class, but when given a week off to prepare for the school Naturals Election, they all go about their own businesses rather than go after Ryuko.
* SpikesOfVillainy: A common feature of their Goku Uniforms, most prominently Sanageyama and Gamagoori (who even has them [[UpToEleven on the soles of his shoes]]).
* StrollingThroughTheChaos: They walk through an entire crowd of brawling students totally unfazed, [[OffhandBackhand elbowing those who lunge at them out of the way without batting an eyelid]].
* TransformationSequence: Like Ryuko and Satsuki, the Elite Four have their own transformations.
* VillainousFriendship: Type IV. As a collective group they are unified by their loyalty to Satsuki and seeing her ultimate goals achieved. From time to time they offer each other advice and aid, but don't shy away from refusing help or taking a jab at each other's failures. They tend to bicker and argue like close siblings; disagreements never come to violent blows, just snide remarks and playful mockery.
** After episode 18 they are revealed to have been [[spoiler: good guys and TrueCompanions the entire time.]]
* WeakButSkilled: A somewhat strange example; while they are far more powerful than other students, they have less power than Kamui users like Ryuko and Satsuki. They can fight and win against Ryuko not thanks to the power of their uniforms, but thanks to various tricks and skills they and their uniforms possess.
* WhatTheHellHero: Mikisugi is a little miffed that they didn't [[spoiler: try to team up with NB]], and that in order to [[spoiler:keep up their façade of loyalty to Ragyo Kiryuin, they not only didn't seek out their help, but they also launched an all-out assault on Nudist Beach which wound up badly crippling its forces. This, combined with the fact that Ragyo has most of Satsuki's [[RedShirtArmy Rank-and File]] under her control, leaves both Honnouji and NB badly unprepared to fight COVERS and the Primordial Life Fiber]].
* UndyingLoyalty: Initially only Gamagoori seemed to exhibit this, while the other three were more flippant about their loyalty to Satsuki. However, following the 17th episode it's quite obvious that all four of them feel this way. [[spoiler:They essentially picked a fight with the most powerful organization on the planet, the loss of which would equal death or worse for both them and their families. Nevertheless they still follow Satsuki without question.]]

[[folder:Ira Gamagoori]]
!!Ira Gamagoori
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/unnamed_qq_screenshot20131025152329_1461.png
->"''Listen up, students of Honnouji Academy! As long as Ira Gamagoori draws breath, this academy's rules will stand firm!''"

->Voiced by: TetsuInada

The Disciplinary Committee Chair and Satsuki's loyal enforcer. Bombastic and relentless when punishing truants, Gamagoori will stop at nothing to mould the model student body. His Three-Star Goku Uniform, the Shackle Regalia, is unique in that it can transform into the more formidable Scourge Regalia when he absorbs enough damage.
----
* AntiVillain: Type I; he has no pity for opponents of the establishment, but as a member of the Disciplinary Committee he ''will'' help a student in need, even his enemy Ryuko.
* BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: Just when it seems that Maiko Ogure will get away with her actions, Gamagoori appears and kicks her out of the school for good.
* BondageIsBad: His Goku Uniform's transformation is themed after BDSM, which features whips, spikes, rope, and a ball gag.
** Subverted in episode 17 when [[spoiler:Satsuki and the entire Honnouji Academy pull HeelFaceTurn making Ira one of the good guys.]]
* ButNotTooForeign: According to WordOfGod, he's half American. To be precise, his father is an American soldier.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Starts off as brutish enforcer of Satsuki's rules. He mellows out somewhat and proves to be both a competent administrator and leader, being effectively Satsuki's [[TheDragon Dragon]]. He also proves very responsible and protective of the people under his care.
* CoatCape: In a flashback.
* CombatSadomasochist: The more he's hit, the stronger he gets. And he clearly enjoys it ''much'' more than he should.
-->'''Gamagoori''': That's it! More! Punish me more! I've been a bad boy!
* CombatTentacles: Scourge Regalia has a lot of whips that move in this manner, and is Gamagoori's main form of offense.
* CoolCar: Has a sweet sports car that he recently got a license for. [[RealMenWearPink It's baby pink]].
* DarkSkinnedBlond: Since dark-skin is considered a sign of an active individual, and BlondGuysAreEvil.
* {{Determinator}}: Before submitting to Satsuki, he told her he would never kneel before her no matter what. Sure enough, after Satsuki defeated him, he took her sheath and used it as crutch to keep himself from falling on his knees.
* DisappearedDad: Gamagoori's father walked out when he was very young, so his maternal uncle helped raise him instead.
* DontYouDarePityMe: He claims that should he ever shed a tear, he'll wipe it himself. When he does start crying, however, he can't handle the disgrace and tries to kill himself.
* TheDragon: Though he has the appearance and capabilities of TheBrute, he's actually the one who keeps the entire student body in line when Satsuki isn't around.
** NobleTopEnforcer: Gamagoori explains that it's the duty of committee members to help students off-campus, even if that student is Ryuko.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: He thinks that spinning his car is a valid method of fending off drive-by shooters. It doesn't end well. Not surprising considering he just got his license. Although it's mostly subverted as before he was attacked he was driving safely and properly.
* EveryoneHasStandards: While he berates Inumuta for daring to wear a tracksuit after being defeated by Ryuko, he does not say the same to Jakuzure, since she's a girl. And when Sanageyama shows up totally naked, he tells him to put on some clothes.
* FallenHero: When he was still a StudentCouncilPresident he opposed Satsuki's ruthless conquest of his school. After being beaten by her however, he joined her side but [[spoiler:he merely changed into an AntiHero, seeing how Satsuki was GoodAllAlong but [[GoodIsNotNice extremely]] [[PragmaticHero ruthless]].]]
* FashionableAsymmetry: Only wears one stocking as part of his [[spoiler:Nudist Beach uniform]].
* {{Foreshadowing}}: When he was attacked by the Automotive club he taunted them if they can keep up with his driving skills. The taunt was issued while the camera showed the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoshinsha_mark wakaba mark]] on his car, pretty much commenting on his driving skills and how his attempt at escaping will end.
* GoKartingWithBowser: In episode 8, when he passes Ryuko and Mako wheeling their busted scooter along the road and gives them a lift in his CoolCar.
* HamToHamCombat: He is challenged by Mako to a cheering competition for their respective sides during the King of the Hill Final Battle after he gets demoted.
* HeldBackInSchool: By his own choice so he could serve Satsuki when she entered high school.
* HiddenDepths: Initially comes off as a brutish LargeHam who solves problems by [[WhipItGood whipping the heck out them]]. Turns out he is a very thorough and competent administrator and leader who is well versed in bureaucracy, probably due to being a former StudentCouncilPresident.
* HitlerCam: Like Satsuki herself, most if not all of Gamagoori's shots when he's exercising his authority are angled in such a way, which coupled with his already impressive height makes him look ''infinitely'' [[YourSizeMayVary more vast than he already is]]. Especially prominent during the first episode when he's dealing with the spy and during his match with Ryuko when the angle he's presented in makes Gamagoori seem like a monumental structure rather than a person.
* IAmYourOpponent: During Ryuko's match against the Elite Four, Gamagoori ensures his chance to fight her first by requesting they fight in the order of how much cannon fodder they take out from least to greatest, then taking out the least number.
* IGaveMyWord: The reason he gives for wanting to [[spoiler:save Mako]]. [[RescueRomance Nonon knows better]], and teases him for it.
* IncomingHam: "'''I'M ON OFFICIAL BUSINESS!!!'''"
* InsaneTrollLogic: He attempts to dodge an enemy pursuit by spinning the car. It goes as well as [[EpicFail you'd expect]].
* InterruptedSuicide: He attempts to perform {{Seppuku}} after losing to Ryuko. [[PetTheDog Satsuki, however, stops him.]]
* LargeAndInCharge: He ''towers'' over the Elite Four, and is also the enforcer of Satsuki's rules. When in battle he often acts as Satsuki's NumberTwo.
* LargeHam: Perhaps the biggest ham in [[WorldOfHam an entire school of]] [[JustForPun clothes-wearing pigs]], seeing how he ''[[NoIndoorVoice never stops screaming]]''.
* {{Leitmotif}}: The first half of "goriLLA蛇L",[[note]]''Gorilla Jaru''[[/note]] which features angry guitars, pounding percussion, and panic-inducing synth riffs.
* LimitBreak: How his Shackle/Scourge Regalia works; if he keeps getting hit while he's unable to move, he will eventually explode with power.
** LogicalWeakness: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]; the weakness in question, which Ryuko tries to exploit, would be to not attack him while in his Shackle Regalia. He rectifies this by whipping himself.
* MachoMasochism: Episode 8, shows he likes being attacked by others. [[FreudWasRight It gets really risqué]]; [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything he describes his defenses as "towering higher" and "getting harder" until they all burst out]] and he pulls a OneWingedAngel.
* ManlyTears: He says he's not afraid to cry, as he clearly shows after losing to Ryuko.
* MightyGlacier: He barely moves an inch while using his Shackle Regalia, instead letting his opponents hit him so he can repay the damage doubly using his Scourge Regalia. He even refers to himself as Satsuki's "impenetrable shield".
* NoIndoorVoice: About the only times he ''doesn't'' scream at the top of his lungs are when he's talking to Satsuki.
* OneHeadTaller: Ironically Gamagoori ''only'' seems to achieve this when placed near Satsuki, to accentuate his demure attitude towards her. Around everybody else he [[YourSizeMayVary ranges from "big" to]] "{{kaiju}}".
* OvershadowedByAwesome: He seemed rather proud of his Vacuum Fist which could [[spoiler:destroy a COVERS and simultaneously rescue its victim]]. But then [[spoiler:Ryuko woke up and did the same to a whole host of COVERS in under 10 seconds.]] Ira was not amused.
* PersonalityPowers: Shackle Regalia allows him to punish himself for his past failings and to show other students true discipline. Scourge Regalia allows him to beat those same students into line.
* PetTheDog: Seems to form a peculiar soft spot for Mako, showing remarkable tolerance of her wacky antics as well as reluctance to fight her seriously or let her put herself in harm's way. Goes into full-blown ShipTease when Gamagoori [[spoiler:leaps to her rescue and cries out Mako's name before she's absorbed by COVERS]], as well as his embarrassment in seeing her [[spoiler:nude after rescuing her]].
* PrinciplesZealot: Even as he and Ryuko are raring to fight, he insists they wait another four hours for their match to begin as scheduled, ''because those are the rules''.
* PunnyName: His name sounds like "gorilla" if said quickly; fitting for someone of his size. "Ira" also means "chastise", his favourite pastime.
* {{Samurai}}: He's not one, but he does share some common elements, such as his strong sense of honour, his attempted seppuku and the CherryBlossoms in his flashback.
* ShirtlessScene: After being defeated by Ryuko and demoted to No-Star, be spends almost three whole episodes in his underwear.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: After [[spoiler:rescuing Mako from COVERS]], Nonon teases Gamagoori, telling him to stop flirting with Mako, which he [[SheIsNotMyGirlFriend furiously denies doing.]] Given that Mako is [[spoiler:butt naked at the time and Gamagoori avoids looking at her and blushes, [[ShipTease Nonon may be onto something.]]]]
* StudentCouncilPresident: He used to be one at his middle school before transferring to Honnouji Academy.
* TechnicalPacifist: Gamagoori does not pick fights unless he is provoked or must enforce the rules. If it's possible to avoid violence to achieve his goals, Gamagoori is not above attempting that avenue first. He similarly cannot attack in his Shackle Regalia unless he receives damage first.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Ira sees [[spoiler:Tsumugu]] using three Vacuum Fists, gives it a moment of thought and then equips himself with nine of them. Extra points because [[spoiler:Tsumugu had them attached to his power armor]] while Ira lifts and uses them with nothing but his own muscles.
* ThrowTheBookAtThem: Figuratively ''and'' literally. His school regulation pocket books are thrown like daggers to defeat the Kobe rugby team during Raid Trip. The pocket books are powerful ''because'' they contain "iron-clad" enforced regulations... and also because they're made entirely of folded steel, but his version sounds better.
* UndyingLoyalty: He is noted for his fierce loyalty to Satsuki. His only thoughts seem to be about enforcing her rules, and his loyalty is much more prominent and outspoken than his colleagues'.
* UnusualEyebrows: Like ears of wheat.
* UnwittingPawn: In episode 13, punishing Mako for spreading news against Satsuki didn't seem important at the time, but if he hadn't taken her away to perform labor service, she would have been there for Ryuko when [[spoiler:Nui Harime (the manipulator of the situation) attacked and Senketsu might have escaped destruction]].
* WeaponsThatSuck: In episode 19, he gets the "Emergency Rescue Suction Device", an ArmCannon which is able to [[spoiler:suck away the host inside COVERS and kill the COVER in the progress.]]
* WhipItGood: His Goku Uniform generates red, thorny lashes. They turn brown and he gets even more of them when transformed.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Subverted; the reason he looks so much older than your standard high school student is because he deliberately waited two years for Satsuki to graduate, so they could enrol in high school together.
* YourSizeMayVary: By virtue of the show's DerangedAnimation, he has only one set height, and that's "bigger than you". And even then, he seems to grow larger with every episode.

!!Uzu Sanageyama
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screen_shot_2013-10-05_at_3_17_4891.jpeg
[[caption-width:300:[[labelnote:Click here to see him with his mask]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sanegeyama-masked_1801.png[[/labelnote]]]]
->"''So you're dead set on this. All right, show me the power of a man's resolve!''"

->Voiced by: Creator/NobuyukiHiyama

The Athletic Committee Chair, commanding officer to the various sports clubs in Honnouji Academy. Sanageyama is rather laid back, but makes no effort to mask his true passion for serving Satsuki. He is also a kendo practitioner, with his Three-Star Goku Uniform Blade Regalia allowing him to see from any angle with great accuracy.
----
* ActorAllusion: Most of the scripting for his character is a tribute to [[Creator/NobuyukiHiyama his seiyuu]], who previously played [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Viral]].
** An [[ShoutOut ironic backlash]] was made known when Nui shreds his Goku Uniform:
--> '''Nui''': "Go back to being a naked ape!"
** Episode 19 features a scene where Sanageyama faces flying enemies with a damaged Goku uniform, pleading for it to "hold on just a bit longer", very similar to when Viral faced flying enemies with his damaged Gunmen. Additionally, the two scenes feature an identical shot from above.
* AffablyEvil: He's the most laid-back of the Elite Four, makes quips in humorous situations, and at least appears to treat his committee members fairly.
* AnimeHair: When he was younger.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: He's a superb swordsman, but he's also overly reliant on his Tengantsu in battle. Fortunately for Ryuko, she is able to exploit this. ''Un''fortunately for her, he learns from his mistakes.
* {{Badass}}: Considering his position, there's little doubt of this.
** BadassLongcoat: His uniform design.
** HandicappedBadass: After he trades off his eyesight, if his uniform hadn't overheated, he would've defeated Ryuko for good.
* BenevolentBoss: While not above beating the crap out of his committee members for disobedience, he's usually there to give them words of encouragement, and is not happy about Ryuko defeating them.
* BishonenLine: As his Blade Regalia uniform is gradually upgraded, it becomes more sleek and humanoid, with less bulky armor.
* BlackSheep: Was a disruptive delinquent from a well-to-do family. Eventually, his father got fed up with him, punched him out, and [[DareToBeBadass challenged him to do something with his life]] if he was so sick of being TheUnfavorite. Thus, Sanageyama formed the [[BadassCrew Northern Kanto Bancho Alliance]].
* BladeBrake: He breaks his fall using his bamboo sword after being knocked off the tournament platform by Nui Harime.
* BlindWeaponmaster: He's a master of the bamboo sword, but once he sews his eyes shut and [[DisabilitySuperpower heightens his remaining senses, granting him the all-seeing Shingantsu, he becomes all the more formidable.]]
* BloodKnight: While still loyal, he takes a great interest in fighting strong enemies, to the point where he personally requests Satsuki to make a one-time exception to the rule that the Elite Four are forbidden to fight Ryuko. In fact, the promise of being able to fight to his heart's content in Satsuki's new school was the reason he joined her in the first place.
* BreakTheHaughty: He takes great pride in his Tengantsu, so to be defeated when Ryuko counters it with a simple tactic is extremely humiliating for him. It prompts him to sew his eyes shut so she'll never be able to exploit this weakness again.
** Happens again in episode 11 when he tries to attack Nui Harime for interrupting his fight with Ryuko.
* TheBrute: He's a BloodKnight, and his PowerArmor is positively huge, like a [[AnimalMotifs gorilla]].
* ButtMonkey: [[JustForPun Hehe]]. Sanageyama is always raring to go fight Ryuko, but the times that he's able to, he's first defeated by her, then Ryuko escapes when his Goku Uniform overheats in their rematch. During their match in the King of the Hill FinalBattle, Nui Harime interrupts and quickly defeats him by de-threading his Goku Uniform of its Banshi Life Fiber [[FingerPokeOfDoom with her pinky]]. The guy just can't catch a break.
* CallingYourAttacks: {{Justified}}, as it's part of being a proper ''kendoka''.
-->'''Sanageyama''': ''MEN! DOU! KOTE!'' ([[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown repeat hundreds of times]])
* CharClone: Is significantly faster and more attentive than the other members of the Elite Four, and wears a mask as of episode 6.
* CompensatingForSomething: He likes to hold his sword close to his crotch during lulls in his fights, and his uniform has a belt with an enormous solid metal buckle adorned with three long spikes. Keep in mind that WordOfGod says he has a TeenyWeenie.
* DeadpanSnarker: Is very cool-headed and questions the awkward mindsets of others surrounding him all the time, Mako more often than not.
-->'''Sanageyama''': [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} That one]] has resolve, too. That, or she's an idiot.
* {{Determinator}}: After being easily defeated by Ryuko for his overconfidence in his [[SuperSenses eyesight]], Satsuki tells him he is too lacking in resolve to continue serving her. So he proves he has that resolve by [[EyeScream sewing his eyes shut]]. Later on, he also keeps his Goku uniform far longer than the rest of the Elite Four after fighting [[spoiler:the COVERS]] for one month straight.
* DisabilitySuperpower: Blinding himself and losing his Tengantsu, combined with the power of his Goku Uniform, sharpens his other senses into the all-seeing Shingantsu.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He shows outright disgust with Kaneo Takarada for making common citizens fight for him in episode 14.
* EyeScream: When he finds he relied too much on his sight fighting Ryuko, he has his eyes sewn shut.
* FullPotentialUpgrade: His EyeScream increases his power to such a degree he overheats his Goku Uniform, requiring it to be upgraded after this allows Ryuko to escape.
* FunTShirt: Wore one that said "bad boy" when he first met Satsuki.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: If the way he holds his [[SceneryCensor sword]] while posing naked in episode 12 serves as any indication.
* HighCollarOfDoom: To go with his delinquent motif.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Ryuko overcomes his [[SuperSenses super sight]] by covering his face plate with Senketsu's cloth, blinding him long enough to cut him down. He learns from this and as a result he becomes a much bigger threat.
* HotBlooded: He's voiced by Creator/NobuyukiHiyama, what on Earth were you expecting? Though Sanageyama's character is a bit more on the tamed and mature side.
* {{Hunk}}: In a cast full of borderline {{gonk}}, he's noticeably very attractive, not to mention in great shape.
* HyperAwareness: After his eyes are sewn shut, his Goku Uniform extends his awareness to ''the entire world'', and it's not much of a hyperbole.
* ICanStillFight: Unlike with Satsuki's other subordinates, stripping him of his uniform does not strip him of the will to fight.
* IHaveManyNames: Lampshaded by the episode 6 preview, which is almost entirely spent listing his titles.
* ImplausibleFencingPowers: Best demonstrates his abilities by being able to deflect bullets and cut missiles in half during the Raid Trip in episode 14.
* JapaneseDelinquent: He was one during his middle school days.
* KendoTeamCaptain: His rank and practice of kendo suggests he is this. Given the high social status kendo has in Japanese society, it's no wonder this guy was picked as one of the Elite Four.
* {{Leitmotif}}: The second half of "犬Kあ3L",[[note]]Inu ka Saru[[/note]] a lively, fast-paced piece with an Oriental feel.
* LookWhatICanDoNow: When he first fights Ryuko, he shows off his Tengantsu ability that gives him super sight, [[HoistByHisOwnPetard which proves to be his downfall. In their rematch, he reveals that he traded out his Tengantsu (and his eyes with it) for the much more potent Shingantsu, which lets him "see" with his other senses. Add that to the powers of his Goku Uniform, and he can pretty much sense anything and everything, everywhere.]]
* MalevolentMaskedMan: Becomes one at the end of episode 6, wearing a mask to cover the scars on his eyes.
* MiniMecha: His uniform becomes this once transformed.
* NoShirtLongJacket: During his second fight with Ryuko, to [[BandageBabe show off his bandaged torso]].
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Holds this view toward Ryuko. [[MoodWhiplash He proclaims this while being butt-naked]].
* PintSizedKid: It's noted that he was pretty scrawny when he was 15, and has since grown to almost unrecognisable heights in the last three years (being even taller than Satsuki nowadays).
* PowerArmor: His Blade Regalia, which resembles a giant mecha bogu.
* PreAsskickingOneLiner: In Episode 6.
-->'''''[[TranquilFury "Here I come."]]'''''
* ScarsAreForever: There are cross-shaped scars across his eyes from the stitches.
* ShamelessFanserviceGuy: Being completely naked doesn't stop him from trying to keep fighting. He didn't even think to put underwear on until Gamagoori ordered him to.
* ShonenHair: Particularly after blinding himself and acquiring the mask.
* SpeedEchoes: His Goku Uniform is so fast it can leave behind after-images to distract his opponent with.
* StraightMan: A rare HotBlooded example, verses a cast full of {{Large Ham}}s, especially visible when interacting with {{Cloudcuckoolander}} [[BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine Mako]].
* SuperSenses: His Tengantsu ability gives him super sight, which lets him pick up on subtle body gestures to predict his enemies' moves.
** LogicalWeakness: Due to his heightened senses after blinding himself, he can't endure anything that's [[SensoryOverload too severe to his other senses.]]
* SuperSpeed: Contrary to his Blade Regalia's bulky appearance, he moves so fast he can actually hit each of Ryuko's ''SpeedEchoes''.
* StealthHiBye: Twice in episode 6, though Satsuki notices him both times. The second time, however, Sanageyama does it ''right in front of her'' when she assumes he's behind her.
* TaremeEyes: Worth noting because, for a tough former-delinquent in a HotBlooded action show, this dude's eyes are HUGE. They look better suited to someone half his age.
* TeenyWeenie: If [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/makotakesmeasurements_3333.png Mako's assessment]] is to be trusted. [[WordOfGod Trigger has confirmed that Mr. Monkey's schlong is indeed severely lacking]].
* TookALevelInBadass: By blinding himself and sharpening his other senses with his Goku Uniform, he is able to predict enemies' movements like never before. This practically makes him the most dangerous of the Elite Four considering the NoHoldsBarredBeatdown he delivered to Ryuko and the highest counter of victories in the Naturals Election.
* TranquilFury: He spends much of his second match with Ryuko in a chilling calm rather than his usual HotBlooded self.
* TheUnfavorite: According to WordOfGod, Sanageyama was constantly and unfavorably compared to his older brother. His irritation over it is partly why he fell into delinquency.
* WoodenKatanasAreEvenBetter: His weapon of choice is a bamboo sword that can cut missiles in half.
* TheWorfEffect: Has seen both sides of the coin: he utterly thrashes Ryuko after he [[TookALevelInBadass gains his Blade Regalia Mk.II]], and is built up as her final opponent during the Naturals Election. But when it finally comes time for the two of them to fight, Nui crashes the fight and demolishes his uniform ''[[FingerPokeOfDoom with her pinky]]''.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Green Hair]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: RareMaleExample. His [[spoiler:Nudist Beach uniform]] comes with a pair of bicep-length gloves and ThighHighBoots, which the audience finds it hard not to focus on.

->"''It's one unbelievable thing after another here. That's what makes this academy so fascinating.''"

->Voiced by: Creator/HiroyukiYoshino

The Information and Strategy Committee Chair, charged with the finance and strategic planning of the Student Council. Unlike his fellow elites, Inumuta is more interested in gathering data on Ryuko's Kamui rather than defeating her. His Three-Star Goku Uniform, Probe Regalia, allows him to analyze and predict his enemies' moves in the heat of battle.
----
* AdjustingYourGlasses: By the corner. Pushing either one side, or both sides of the lenses using just one or two fingers. [[MundaneMadeAwesome Double the badass level when he performs this]] alongside Sewing Club President Iori.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Played straight when he uses his skills to pinpoint the weak spot in a 50% Life Fiber Goku Uniform and [[OneHitKill unravel it in one hit]].
** {{Defied}} to the point of {{Deconstruction}}, however, in his fight against Ryuko. She is [[GenreSavvy familiar enough]] with guys that use this strategy to know that using dangerous and/or just plain stupid techniques can throw off their contingency plans enough to turn the tables on them, so she starts off the match by overclocking Senketsu to the point where Inumuta's calculations can't catch up with her attacks.
* BerserkButton: He threatens Mako with death when she bumps into his laptop.
* TheCracker: Before attending Honnouji Academy, Inumuta was a street punk who would hack into and ruin big name corporate networks [[ItAmusedMe for the fun of it]]. Thanks to Satsuki, he was given the chance to crack the real-world system instead of a virtual one.
* DeadpanSnarker: Though he's a lot more subtle about it than others.
-->'''Inumuta:''' Oh, how fascinating. I'll file away that bit of snide commentary.
* DoingResearch: His main concern with Ryuko is simply gathering information on everything she and Senketsu are capable of.
* EnemyScan: His Goku Uniform can pinpoint his opponents' weaknesses and predict their attack trajectories. Ryuko manages to exceed his calculations simply by being reckless enough.
* EvilGenius: He's the council's information analyst and strategist, so of course he'd be this.
* FanservicePack: Inumuta's TransformationSequence shows him with minimum muscle-definition, however after [[spoiler:joining Nudist Beach]] and going shirtless he looks much more toned than before.
* FourEyesZeroSoul: He wears glasses, and is also a cold and calculating supergenius.
* FutureSpandex: His Goku Uniform, Probe Regalia, which is more restrained-looking than his [[PoweredArmor fellow]] [[MiniMecha elites']]. It's [[UnusualUserInterface covered in keyboards]] too.
* GeekPhysiques: Of the skinny sort, [[FanservicePack at least until episode 19]]. [[spoiler:Nudist Beach]] must have one hell of a fitness program.
* HighCollarOfDoom: His collar is like a mouth mask, and will zip closed whenever he decides to stop speaking. When he's demoted, he switches to a high-collared warm-up jacket, and as a member of [[spoiler:Nudist Beach]] he keeps the collar despite not wearing a shirt.
** [[JustForPun Considering Inumuta is the "dog" of the operation...]]
* InTheHood: In flashbacks to when he was recruited by Satsuki, he wears a red hoodie.
* InvisibilityCloak: His Goku Uniform's Optical Camouflage.
* ItAmusedMe: During middle school, Inumuta broke into the world's tightest online security system because of the challenge it presented. Satsuki was disappointed that someone so brilliant could be so small-minded, and offered him to be a part of something with a much greater purpose.
* JapanesePronouns: A rather odd, non-plot-related example. In episode 6 he briefly uses ''boku'', but permanently switches to ''ore'' for his other appearances.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: He knows when he's been beaten and surrenders to Ryuko before she can shred his uniform so he won't lose the data he's gathered on her. Doesn't stop him from being demoted, though.
* {{Leitmotif}}: The first half of "犬Kあ3L",[[note]]Inu ka Saru[[/note]] which fittingly enough has a rather cold, electronic sound.
* MissionControl: The reason he's a NonActionGuy. Notable examples are during the subjugation of Kansai, and [[spoiler:this seems to be his primary function as an officer of Nudist Beach.]]
* MrExposition: According to Jakuzure, this is his role in the Elite Four, and he has fulfilled it on multiple occasions and [[SeriousBusiness with great enthusiasm]]. Of course, he can't really explain things that he has no information about, like who Nui Harime is, or how she's able to tear a Goku Uniform to shreds by pulling a single thread out.
* NonActionGuy: Ryuko beats him with less trouble than she had against some two-star students, his role during the Kansai conquering arc is tech support, and he's the only one of the Elite Four to not even land a hit on Nui in Episode 18.
** He also hasn't fought once since [[spoiler:joining Nudist Beach.]]
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: Aikuro's striptease seems to have absolutely zero effect on him.
* OneWayVisor: Wears this while transformed, and comes with a HUD display.
* RapidFireFisticuffs: With his feet, since he needs his hands for...
** RapidFireTyping: Does it all over his body when using Probe Regalia. While striking ridiculous poses.
* ReadingsAreOffTheScale: When he's cornered by Ryuko, his visor flashes "DOES NOT COMPUTE" in bright red text.
** ReadingsBlewUpTheScale: The direct consequence of the above.
* RecruitingTheCriminal: Satsuki recruited Inumuta after witnessing him hack into her conglomerate's computer system and destroy their stock holdings.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: Not that scary, but those shiny blue lenses look pretty cool.
* SnarkToSnarkCombat: He trades potshots with Jakuzure almost every time they talk. While she finds it annoying, he seems to find it amusing.
* SquishyWizard: One solid hit is enough to render him defenseless.
* StoicSpectacles: He's the only one of the Elite Four who rarely smiles and almost never raises his voice. [[NotSoStoic Unless you]] [[BerserkButton damage his laptop]].
* SurroundedByIdiots: His sentiment when Mako sums up his TechnoBabble as "Ryuko is really awesome!" and Gamagoori just agrees with her.
* TeenGenius: In middle school, he managed to bypass one of the tightest security systems in the world just for kicks.
* TheWorfBarrage: Fires [[spoiler:the ''Naked Sun'''s main cannons]] at [[spoiler:a Junketsu-wearing Ryuko.]] While it fails to even dent his target, it provides enough time for [[spoiler:Ira to use his "Emergency Rescue Suction Device" at point-blank range as to separate Junketsu from Ryuko.]]

->"''Oh, dear. The toad, the monkey, and the dog have all screwed up.''"

->Voiced by: Mayumi Shintani

The Non-Athletic Committee Chair and commander of the school's culture clubs. She boasts having been Satsuki's friend since kindergarten, and fancies herself Satsuki's equal. As a music conductor, Jakuzure's Three-Star Goku Uniform Symphony Regalia is a mobile sound system that utilizes sound-based attacks and musical instrument-shaped artillery.
----
* AirstrikeImpossible: Her ''real'' mission during the Raid Trip is destroying Nudist Beach's well-protected, well-hidden ElaborateUndergroundBase below Osaka. Despite the chaotic situation (including having to aid Satsuki during her fight with Ryuko), she manages to complete the mission anyway.
* BadassNormal: Even without her uniform and as a [[spoiler:Nudist]] she still kicks [[spoiler:COVERS]] ass with ease.
* BerserkButton: For all the fun she has taunting others, she can't stand being on the receiving end. But that's nothing compared to letting someone other than herself fly in "her" sky.
* BishonenLine: Her Symphony Regalia Da Capo is a simple music conductor's uniform, whereas her Grave/Presto form is an [[MiniMecha armored tank.]]
* BitchInSheepsClothing: She always makes fun of her peers while keeping up a sugary sweet façade.
* BrownNote: Her Da Capo's hat cannon can disrupt the connection between uniform and user through resonance with Life Fibers.
* CatSmile: Most noticeable when she's not speaking.
* TheChessmaster: Shows elements of this in episode 5, as she knows how Satsuki thinks and how to best interpret the motives of her orders.
* ChildhoodFriends: With Satsuki. They've known each other since kindergarten, and Jakuzure considers her a close friend and an equal.
* CoolHat: It can even be mounted with a sound cannon!
* CuteButCacophonic: Her voice is an interesting mix of rasp, growl, and squeak.
* CutYourHeartOutWithASpoon: She threatens to replace Inumuta's glasses with non-prescription ones if he ever talks smack to her again.
* DarkActionGirl: She's a BitchInSheepsClothing who pilots a flying tank and fires bursts of sound from her hat.
* DarkChick: Sole female of the Elite Four? Check. Has the most colorful personality? Check. Loves reminding her fellow elites she clicks with their master more than any of them? Check. Pilots a massive airship whereas the others just wear suits of armor? That's gotta count for ''something''.
* DeadlyDisc: Her Regalia can fire razor-edged musical notes.
* DeadpanSnarker: She's left feeling most bitter after getting beaten and demoted.
-->'''Inumuta''': I managed to collect excellent data. Thank you.\\
'''Jakuzure''': Bite me.
* ElegantGothicLolita: Her appearance is this crossed with a marching band uniform.
* EvilCounterpart: She can be seen as one to Mako through their relationships with Satsuki and Ryuko, respectively. Both are the more lively, girlier best friends of their more serious-minded partners, and will support them to the very end. But whereas Mako is a poor yet [[CloudCuckooLander wacky]], FunPersonified NiceGirl, Nonon is a [[SmugSnake smug]], [[BitchInSheepsClothing spoiled brat in sheep's clothing]]. Also contrasting is how long they've known their closest friends; Mako didn't meet Ryuko until she transferred to Honnouji, while Nonon and Satsuki are ChildhoodFriends.
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: She's usually surrounded by stuffed animals to play with TheFakeCutie image.
* GunsAkimbo: Done with two missile pods no less, unleashing a one person MacrossMissileMassacre in episode 21.
* HeroicSecondWind: One of the few villain examples with Da Capo.
* InstantFanclub: She had one of these at her beck and call in kindergarten.
* InstrumentOfMurder: Her transformed uniform can launch giant recorder missiles, as well as fire cymbals and bladed musical notes.
* JapaneseHonorifics: She calls Satsuki "Satsuki-''sama''" most of the time like anyone else, but at emotional moments she'll switch to "Satsuki-''chan''" or even forgo honorifics altogether.
** Surprisingly, considering they're not shown to be all that close, she calls Gamagoori "Ira-''chan''" in Episode 13, thus being the only person so far to call him by his first name. Then again, she was using a normally affectionate honorific in a poisonously sarcastic manner:
-->'''Nonon''': Yeah, nobody wants to see you commit seppuku, Ira-''chan''. The clean-up of your guts would be a pain.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Still kind of arrogant and unpleasant, [[spoiler: but she did return to Honnouji to look for survivors all but single-handedly, and got Mataro and his gang of kids out.]]
* JetPack: Her second Regalia has this.
* {{Kawaiiko}}: She was definitely this as a kindergartener, with her adorable little pet monkey and sickeningly cute squeaky noises with every step she took.
* KnifeNut: After the one month timeskip in episode 19, [[spoiler:she started wielding the smaller broken piece of Bakuzan, retooled as a combat knife, to great effect in lieu of her lost Goku uniform. Particularly notable since her Goku was a long range attack type and she has shown no close-quarter combat skills before this.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: The second half of "goriLLA蛇L",[[note]]''Gorilla Jaru''[[/note]] which, appropriately for a drum major, features military drums and brass fanfares.
* LetsGetDangerous: When she's in a fight, she drops her normally squeaky voice for a more intimidating one, especially if she's sufficiently pissed.
* LittleMissBadass: She holds the second-highest elimination total during the Naturals Election, just behind [[TheBrute Sanageyama]].
* LoudOfWar: Plays her music at full blast with some epic bass to harass Ryuko.
* LovesTheSoundOfScreaming: While playing music during her battle with Ryuko in episode 10, she decides it's lacking a certain something: the sounds of Ryuko's screams.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: Her Musical Barrage attack.
* MagicalGirlWarrior: An evil one, sure, but when you see a MagicalGirl piloting an armored tank, she's bound to kick ass.
* MagicMissileStorm: She fires musical bar-shaped energy at the battle arena to eliminate Ryuko.
* MakeWayForThePrincess: She enjoyed this treatment in her kindergarten years, with all the boys even building her a royal-sized castle in the school sandbox.
* MiniMecha: Her Symphony Regalia is a flying tank, as Ryuko lampshades.
-->'''Ryuko''': On what planet is that a uniform?!
* MoreDeadlyThanTheMale: She taunts this when saying that the battle with her will not be like Gamagoori's and Inumuta's.
* MusicalAssassin: Her transformed uniform is a massive surround sound system tank that can ditch the treads to turn into a VTOL fighter instead.
* TheNapoleon: She's ''tiny'' (quite probably the shortest non-child character in the series), and she's got a big ego to match.
* NiceHat: Wears them in all of her appearances, in particular her Goku Uniform marching band hat, which is decked out with a decorative monkey skull. [[FridgeHorror Which may or may not belong to the pet monkey she had as a kid...]]
* TheNicknamer: She calls others names on numerous occasions, mostly her fellow elites:
** She never calls Ryuko by name, instead addressing her as "[[NewTransferStudent Transfer Student]]".
** In episode 1, she calls Gamagoori "Gama-''kun''" (Froggy), Sanageyama "Saru-''kun''" (Monkey), and Inumuta "Inu-''kun''" (Doggy)--a reference to the AnimalMotifs in their last names.
** In episode 5, she calls Inumuta "Megane-''kun''" (Four Eyes).
** After episode 6, she often calls Sanageyama the somewhat derogatory "Yamazaru-''san''" (Wild Monkey).
** From episode 7 onwards, she refers to Mako as "Underachiever".
** In episode 15, she calls Inumuta "Wan-''chan''", which means the same as "Inu-''kun''", but is [[BelligerentSexualTension ten times cuter]].
** Turned around in episode 19, where she demands that Mataro call her by her name (or preferably Nonon-''sama'') instead of "Elite Four chick" while still calling him "that slacker's brother/slacker junior"; Gamagoori reprimands her for expecting to be addressed by name without extending the same courtesy.
* OlderThanSheLooks: Not counting her hat, she's much shorter than the other Elite Four members and Satsuki. However, she's known Satsuki since kindergarten which implies that they are both third years.
* OrchestralBombing: Weaponized.
* PerkyFemaleMinion: She cheerily prances into battle with a full marching band following her, and her TransformationSequence is the most MagicalGirl-esque of all the characters. [[BitchInSheepsClothing Then she has her VillainousBreakdown...]]
* PinkMeansFeminine: Being the only female Elite Four, Jakuzure's Goku Uniform predominantly features pink when transformed.
* PunnyName: Her first name contains the character for "sound".
* RoseHairedSweetie: [[BitchInSheepsClothing Only on the surface]], mind you.
* SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset: Her Goku Uniform features bone motifs and what appears to be the skeletal remains of a rock star draped over her shoulders.
* SmallGirlBigGun: Her Goku "Uniform" is a flying tank. In Episode 21 she wields a pair of shoulder-mounted rocket launchers.
* SmugSnake: She thinks quite highly of herself since she knew Satsuki when they were toddlers. Fitting enough for a girl with [[AnimalMotifs the word "snake" literally in her name]].
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: She's the only female among the Elite Four, though they ''are'' commanded by a woman.
* SnarkToSnarkCombat: Most of her interactions with Inumuta are this. At first it seems she finds it annoying, but the light novel on the Elite Four hints she might actually enjoy teasing him.
* SweetTooth: She's seen having sweets with her in the Student Council's meeting room and eating a lollipop.
* UndyingLoyalty: Like Gamagoori, she is very loyal to Satsuki and has been with her since kindergarten.
* VillainousBreakdown: She really starts to lose her cool when Ryuko manages to match her in the air with Senketsu Shippu, dropping her cutesy act entirely and adopting a perpetual, sickening hiss in her voice from there onward.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Among the Elite Four, she interacts the most with Inumuta. While it's mainly trading snark, they do have their moments, most notably in episode 15.
* WaveMotionGun: Subverted. Her Symphony Regalia Da Capo's bass cannon is like this at first glance, but the weapon is not actually based on amplitude so much as inducing resonance.
* WeaponizedHeadgear: Her hat in Da Capo mode has a bass cannon.
* WeHaveReserves: She sends three relatively weak clubs against Ryuko and Tsumugu in order to test the pair's combat abilities. She doesn't exactly seem too concerned that all three clubs [[CurbstompBattle get wiped out]].
* WickedCultured: She's a total BitchInSheepsClothing, but she also has a taste for playing classical music even in the heat of battle.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Pink Hair]]

[[folder:General]]
Honnouji Academy students who run the school clubs and work directly under the Elite Four as henchmen. Only they are permitted to wear Two-Star Goku Uniforms that grant them superpowers greater than One-Stars' simple {{Status Buff}}s, but nowhere near as powerful as Three-Stars.
----
* ClothingDamage: Their uniforms all get destroyed when Ryuko defeats them.
* CustomUniform: Like the Elite Four, their Goku Uniforms are made to stand out among their club members. Most notably, their star crests and weapons glow a luminescent red.
* EliteMooks: While ordinary One-Star students can be taken out by Ryuko with ease, these guys can give her a run for her money on a bad day.
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: They answer to the real bosses of the school.
* SpikesOfVillainy: Like the Elite Four, a good many of the club presidents' uniforms have these features.

The Sewing Club President and nephew of Satsuki's butler, Soroi. He oversees the research and development of the Goku Uniforms.
----
* ActorAllusion: A feminine-looking, long-haired {{Megane}} in a lab coat in charge of developing battle gear? Creator/YujiUeda [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 has done it before]].
* AdjustingYourGlasses: By the bridge. [[MundaneMadeAwesome Double the badass level when he performs this]] alongside Chairman Inumuta.
* BadassBoast: When [[spoiler:Aikuro]] asks if Shiro's able to mass produce Goku Uniforms all by himself, he confirms as much [[spoiler:before activating his Three-Star Uniform.]]
--> '''Shiro:''' "I'm all the help I need."
* {{Bishonen}}: To the point where he practically looks like a woman with his long, wavy hair and petite frame.
* TheBlacksmith: As the head of the sewing club in a world where clothing are weapons, he's basically this.
* CoolMask: Wears a translucent orange gas mask, presumably to protect himself from some dangerous particulate produced by Life Fibers.
* GadgeteerGenius: He is the one who designs and constructs the Goku Uniforms. Might share this position with Inumuta who specializes in gathering and analysis of battle data which are later used to improve the uniforms. Shiro was also the one who built the Vacuum Fist used by Gamagoori to [[spoiler:save the COVERS victims.]]
* GasMaskLongcoat: His overall look, his uniform length extends far beyond his height.
* IAmNotLeftHanded: It turns out [[spoiler: that his uniform is a Three-Star. The third star was hidden on his folded collar]].
* LargeHam: Not normally, but when he activates his uniform he doesn't say its name, he screams it on the top of his lungs.
* NonActionGuy: Despite being a Two-Star student, he is literally the only plot-relevant student yet to participate in combat.
* OddFriendship: Unlike the other club presidents, he speaks with the Elite Four on equal terms.
** Turns out this is because he's the nephew of Soroi, Satsuki's butler, [[spoiler:and he's also part of Satsuki's conspiracy to kill Ragyo and destroy REVOCS/COVERS]].

* CombatTentacles: His left glove launches a stream of punches so rapid that it essentially functions as this.
* CoolHelmet: Always wears protective headgear.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: His corkscrew punch attack makes his right hand glove spin. The effect is enough that it rips the cloak that Ryuko was wearing to cover up her uniform.
* ExtremityExtremist: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]; he's more than happy to use kicks in a fight.
* TheGlovesComeOff: When he's done playing around, he removes his right glove, revealing a huge slab of steel that resembles a meat tenderizer.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Accuses Ryuko of mocking boxing by wearing a {{Stripperiffic}} uniform to [[DistractedByTheSexy distract him in battle]]. His defending the sacrosanct spirit of the sport is soon revealed to be a complete bull when it turns out his boxing glove is there to hide his metal PowerFist.
* LargeHam: He gets a bit too excited when detailing the powers of his "''ATHLETICISM-AUGMENTING TWO-STAR GOKU UNIFORM!!!''"
* PintSizedPowerhouse: He's only slightly larger than Ryuko, yet he delivers a complete and utter smackdown on her.
* PowerFist: His Two-Star uniform gives him this power.
* PunnyName: In Japanese name order, "Fukuroda Takaharu" sounds similar to "''fukurodataki''", which means "to beat up by ganging up".
* SignatureMove: ''Tekken Funsai'' (lit. "Iron Fist Smash")
** MegatonPunch
* SpamAttack: His left jab launches a stream of steel boxing gloves at his opponent.

* BadassLongcoat: Her Two-Star Goku Uniform has one that is decorated with SpikesOfVillainy.
* BatterUp: Mako's weapon of choice for this particular episode is a wooden bat with golden nails in it.
* BlingBlingBang: All of Mako's weapons while wearing this uniform are accented with gold.
* CryCute: [[http://theglorioblog.files.wordpress.com/2013/11/vlcsnap-2013-11-14-15h00m20s245.png Look at her.]] [[InelegantBlubbering LOOK AT HER, DAMN IT!]]
** ManlyTears: An ultra-rare feminine example. She's still a passionate {{Badass}} who cries her heart out.
* ChainPain: She tosses Ryuko around the school courtyard with a long, gilded chain.
* CoatCape: Mako wears her BadassLongcoat as such.
* FlechetteStorm: Hurls a barrage of golden hand tools at Ryuko.
* JapaneseDelinquent: Her uniform is very [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Jotaro-esque]].
* LegacyCharacter: Of a sort; Ryuko hardly spends a minute with the title of Fight Club President before more or less shoving it onto Mako.
* MegatonPunch: She can use a brass knuckle to [[CraterPower punch a crater into the ground]], and in episode 22, [[spoiler:the uniform itself punches a {{Kaiju}}-sized COVERS upon its return.]]
* MonsterOfTheWeek: The title of Fight Club President, as well as its uniform, only appears in Episode 7, but is quite a twist for [[TemporarilyAVillain Mako]]. This goes out of the window once the uniform [[TheBusCameBack makes an awesome comeback]] in Episode 22.
* NiceHat: Her uniform comes with a captain's cap.
* OralFixation: Her uniform comes with a clover straw to chew on, which Mako does until she dumps the uniform.
* PowerFist: Wears a brass knuckle with the president's name emblazoned on it.
* RapidFireFisticuffs: One of the many attacks Mako unleashes on Ryuko.
* ShoutOut: The appearance and abilities of the Fight Club President's Goku uniform are a blatant reference to Jotaro's uniform from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', right down to the tuft of hair on the back of the hat.
* TheBusCameBack: The uniform inexplicably comes back in Episode 22, [[spoiler:as Mako wears it and faces off against a {{Kaiju}}-sized COVERS.]]

[[folder:Minor Club Presidents]]
!!Minor Club Presidents
* BreathWeapon: Aizenbo Fuguhara, the Ping Pong Club President, can [[PlayingWithFire breathe fire]] by drinking gasoline.
* CannonFodder: Like Uwabami, Jakuzure sends the presidents of the Rakugo and 100 Poems Clubs to gauge Ryuko and Tsumugu's abilities.
* CombatTentacles: Kagesaburo Kagero, who uses Nanjing Lilies to this effect.
* DanceBattler: Maimu Okurahama, the Folk Dancing Club President.
* DegradedBoss: The last couple club presidents actually gave Ryuko quite a challenge. These guys? [[CurbStompBattle Not so much.]]
* DishingOutDirt: The power of the Three Touki Brothers of the Pottery, Arts, and Crafts Club, who can control clay.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Ryosuke Todoroki of the Automotive Airsoft Club, whose Goku Uniform is also his car.
* FlamingHair: Todoroki's hair is a glowing red flame, or at least resembles one.
* FlechetteStorm: Jack Naito's attacks.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Razor pillows, poetry cards, ping-pong balls, origami cranes... Some of these guys have some weird arsenals.
* KnifeNut: Jack Naito, president of the Knife-Throwing Club.
* MeaningfulName: Each character in Todoroki's name contains the radical for "car".
* NoNameGiven: The Biology Club President is the only unnamed club president who gets any speaking lines.
* PaperMaster: Tatamu Otte, the Origami Club President. [[WeHardlyKnewYe Presumably]].
* {{Stripperiffic}}: The only thing covering Aizenbo Fuguhara's breasts are a pair of ping pong paddles.
* VillainousHarlequin: Tightrope Walking Club President Masuyo Watari dresses like a clown.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: They're lucky to get even ''two'' lines of dialogue before Ryuko strips them. Hell, one of them doesn't even get to announce their ''name'' before getting taken out.

->Voiced by: Creator/MarinaInoue

Ryuko and Mako's classmate, an injured No-Star student who they help on No-Late Day. In truth, she is the Head of Trap Development for the Disciplinary Committee, who plots to steal Senketsu for her own ends.
----
* {{Badass}}: Ryuko even [[LampshadeHanging calls her such]] after seeing what she can do.
** BadassDriver: She can drive a turret-mounted armored bus like nobody's business.
** BadassNormal: For a No-Star student, she can be awesome.
** HandicappedBadass: She does all this with her arm in a cast! Except the "handicapped" part is fake.
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: Hilariously subverted; she throws herself off a highly elevated rolling platform after setting off one last trap for Ryuko, claiming she'll at least die with her dignity as a member of the Disciplinary Committee intact, only to open a parachute at the last second.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Pretends to be a nice, modest girl to gain Ryuko's trust in order to steal Senketsu.
* CardCarryingVillain: Once she stops her nice-girl façade.
* CustomUniform: Subverted; despite being a club president, she's a No-Star like Mako.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: "[[EvilIsHammy CHIKARA-POWER!"]][[note]]"Chikara" already means "power", so she's basically saying "Power-Power"[[/note]]
* DidntSeeThatComing: Manages to put on Senketsu, but fails to realize that the only one he'll ever let him is Ryuko.
* EvilIsHammy: As soon as she reveals her true nature, she really cuts loose.
* EvilLaugh: She has a very distinct NoblewomansLaugh.
* FalseFriend: Acts as Ryuko's friend just so she can get her hands on Senketsu.
* KarmaHoudini: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted; once she thinks she's gotten away after setting one final trap for Ryuko, Gamagoori promptly and justly expels her from the academy.]]
* KickTheDog: Literally does this to Guts' face when he tries returning Senketsu to Ryuko.
* ManipulativeBitch: Her "injured schoolgirl" act has Ryuko and Mako totally fooled while she plots to steal Senketsu at the right moment.
* {{Meganekko}}: Of the [[ManipulativeBitch bitchy, manipulative variety.]]
* TheMillstone: On top of dragging Ryuko down, she accidentally pulls down her pants her whenever Mako's family (carrying Senketsu) catches up with her, causing them to crash while [[DistractedByTheSexy distracted]]. It later turns out this is intentional.
* MonsterOfTheWeek: For the one and only episode she appears in, she stirs quite a commotion, mainly because of her true identity.
* TheMole: Her job entails going undercover as an ordinary student and setting up traps based on their behavior.
* NoblewomansLaugh: [[EvilLaugh KYAHOHOHOHO!]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: It's the first tell-tale sign she's really no good.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: A staple of hers once she shows her true colors.

* TheStarscream: After growing sick and tired of their job, she concocts a plan to overthrow Satsuki as Student Council President using Senketsu. Once her treachery is exposed, Gamagoori expels her for good.
* ThemeNaming: "Mai" is a kind of linen robe.
* TrapMaster: Helped build an entire ''amusement park'' of traps throughout the city!
* TheUnchosenOne: Subverted when she puts on Senketsu and easily activates his power. However, just because she is shameless enough to master the skimpy power of Senketsu within seconds, that doesn't mean that Senketsu will let her use him for her personal gain.
* WoundedGazelleGambit: She fakes an arm injury to get Ryuko to take pity on her and help her.

->Voiced by: Creator/NobuhikoOkamoto

A No-Star student and former member of the Newspaper Club, suspended from Honnouji Academy after trying to start an insurrection against Satsuki through the school paper.

----
* AmusingInjuries: His beatdowns from the Disciplinary Committee are quite comical.
* BadassNormal: He's a No-Star student, yet he's willing to face down hulking One-Stars if it means taking down the system.
* ChasteHero: [[ExaggeratedTrope Played to ridiculous extremes]] when he nonchalantly emerges from a bathroom stall to speak to Mako ''in the girl's room''. [[spoiler: It's a subtle hint that he himself is actually [[SweetPollyOliver a girl in disguise]].]]
* TheDeterminator: Even while held down and beaten to a pulp by a gang of brutish thugs, he fiercely refuses to stay down until he gets Ryuko's attention. It turns out it's because [[spoiler:[[ImplacableMan they couldn't really have hurt him anyway.]]]]
* DissonantSerenity: He becomes quite serene and creepy moments before revealing [[spoiler:his true identity.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: When he's introduced, the BossSubtitles are black instead of red. [[spoiler:Implying that it's not his real name at all.]]
* FourEyesZeroSoul: To know just how soulless "he" is, just see [[spoiler:Nui Harime.]]
* HotBlooded: He ''slams'' his cup down on the tray when having a meal with Ryuko and Mako, then goes on to [[PercussiveTherapy pound the floor repeatedly]], spilling everyone else's tea.
* LargeHam: Shinjiro does not speak, he SHOUTS.
* MarionetteMaster: Those thuggish One-Star students who keep trying to silence him [[spoiler:are actually giant marionettes "he" controls using Life Fibers.]]
* MeaningfulName: "Shinjiro" sounds a lot like "''shinjiru''", the Japanese phrase meaning "to trust". [[IronicName Ironically]], [[spoiler:it's to further emphasize Nui's deception of Ryuko.]]
* PeekABangs: His left eye is covered by his hair. [[spoiler: It's to hide "his" eyepatch, which didn't quite make the transformation...]]
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: One of the first lines out of his mouth is "I'm not a suspicious person".
* SweetPollyOliver: It turns out that, with a few [[spoiler:Life Fibers]] and a voice changer, [[spoiler:Nui can create a near-perfect disguise from scratch, which she uses to deceive Ryuko into wearing Senketsu again.]]
* VoiceOfTheResistance: He uses his papers to put together his own [[LaResistance resistance]] against the Student Council.
* WalkingSpoiler: In case the blanked out entries didn't tip you off, he [[spoiler:is really Nui in disguise.]]
* WideEyedIdealist: He cherishes freedom of speech in a world oppressed by Satsuki, and is passionate in his belief that Ryuko can save their school, which has gotten him in trouble with the Student Council many times.

!Nudist Beach
[[folder:General]]
A mysterious organization that directly opposes the Kiryuin family and their plans for WorldDomination.
----
* CastOfSnowflakes: Effort was clearly taken to ensure some variety in the heights, builds, and faces of the rank-and-file during their first crowd shot. This stands in deliberate contrast to Satsuki's One-Stars and Ragyo's middle-managers, whom all look like copies of the same three people no matter how many are on screen.
* CoolShip: The [[spoiler: ''Naked Sun'', Nudist Beach's flagship. It's a retractable aircraft carrier which also formed part of their Main/ElaborateUndergroundBase prior to be deployed in episode 20.]]
* ElaborateUndergroundBase: They have an underwater fortress in Osaka.
* FailOSuckyname: Almost everyone who hears it comments that it's ridiculous. Ryuko even thought Aikuro was joking [[MyGodYouAreSerious at first]].
** FridgeBrilliance: The man who founded the organization [[RomanticismVersusEnlightenment didn't have the best naming sense, not that he cares anyway.]]
* {{Fanservice}}: A whole organization dedicated to it no less. All men are handsome and buff, and the women are pretty and buxom, meanwhile their clothing, if it can even be called that, barely covers anything.
* FullFrontalAssault: They turn this trope into a philosophy. See also the HandOrObjectUnderwear entry for how Trigger [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar gets by with that.]]
* HandOrObjectUnderwear: The combat uniform of the Nudist Beach RedShirtArmy consists of semi-automatic handguns, tactical combat belts, stockings, and sleeves. ''Literally only those items'': they don't wear shirts, pants or underwear. The pistols are conveniently positioned to cover the naughty bits of each man and woman.
* LaResistance: They are known as the "Anti-Kiryuin" resistance.
* MeaningfulName: They are nudists who oppose those who use clothes for evil purposes.
* MiniMecha: Their primary weapons are mechanical two-legged suits.
* MysteriousBacker: They supply the Kansai schools with technology designed to fight the Kiryuins with funding from the late Isshin Matoi.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: Their nakedness hardly ever fails to get a bewildered expression from Ryuko.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Thanks to Tsumugu they seemed like a credible threat at first but by the mid-point of the series they became all but useless compared to monsters using 3 Star Uniforms, Kamuis or [[spoiler:being [[HalfHumanHybrid Life fiber hybrids]]]]

->"''At school, you and I are teacher and student. Don't make contact without making precautions. Of course, you're more than welcome to cross that line here.''"

->Voiced by: Creator/ShinichiroMiki

Appearing at first glance to be Ryuko's bumbling homeroom teacher, this mysterious man is an agent of Nudist Beach who has infiltrated the school to spy on Satsuki. Aikuro aids and protects Ryuko under the Student Council's radar, providing her with vital information on Senketsu and the Kiryuins, usually in the middle of an inexplicable strip tease.
----
* AceCustom: His [[MiniMecha Dotonb...]] [[InsistentTerminology er... DTR]] is notably different than the standard unit issued to Nudist Beach RedShirt/s; being bigger and having red leg wheels.
* ActorAllusion:
** When Ryuko [[spoiler:goes on a berserk rampage after Nui reveals herself as her father's killer]], he is tasked with [[spoiler:taking her down]] with a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 sniper]] [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic rifle]].
** He's also a goofy, dishevelled mentor figure that knows more than he's letting on, kinda like [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Kisuke Urahara]].
* AlmightyJanitor: Alongside No-Star students, teachers hold the absolute lowest rank in Honnouji Academy. This doesn't make his skill set any less impressive.
* AudibleGleam: Every time he "transforms". Aikuro's face is just that dazzling.
* BadassTeacher: He's managed to survive the hell hole that is Honnouji Academy until now. Also an effective acupuncturist and spy.
* BattleStrip: His clothes slide off when he ditches his teacher disguise and things [[LetsGetDangerous get dangerous]]. [[spoiler:He also pilots a MiniMecha with nothing but a utility belt covering his privates]].
* BeardnessProtectionProgram: Has a bit of PermaStubble as part of his disguise. It can apparently disappear at will.
* BeautifulAllAlong: Subverted in that he cleans up in the first episode, but then goes back to wearing his disguise, only to dramatically remind everyone he's a looker OnceAnEpisode.
* BerserkButton: The words "Dotonbori Robo" are guaranteed to turn Aikuro into a petulant child.
* {{Bishonen}}: As if it wasn't obvious enough, the "mi" in his surname literally means "beauty".
** BishieSparkle: To the extent that at one point a single sparkle takes up ''half the screen''.
* ClarkKenting: His disguise amounts to messy hair, a pair of aviator glasses, stubble, and bad posture. In episode 15 [[spoiler:it's subverted, as we learn his disguise never fooled Satsuki]].
* ClarkKentOutfit: Quite a bit more muscular than his clothing would suggest.
* CoolCar: His OneSceneWonder "Nude Shooting Star", which doubles as an AmphibiousAutomobile.
* DoubleEntendre: When speaking directly to Ryuko, he makes occasional comments that could also be misinterpreted as offers to make out or have sex.
** Considering how this has started spreading to other characters, it might just come naturally to him.
* EccentricMentor: Aikuro can be a bit ''strange'' sometimes.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Right at the start of episode 1, Aikuro actually [[NonchalantDodge evades the reinforced metal door Gamagoori kicks at him]], unlike his poor students. Later that same episode, he follows Ryuko home and drops her through a trapdoor, before taking off his disguise for the first time. It's an indication that he's neither who he seems nor someone to be messed with.
* FemaleGaze: Exaggerated during his strip routines. Episode 19 takes it to a whole 'nother level with extreme close-ups of his crotch every few minutes.
* FullFrontalAssault: Seeing as he's one of Nudist Beach's "Splendid Naked Officers", his choice of battle attire should come to no one's surprise.
* GodwinsLaw: Aikuro dedicates a suspicious amount of class time to history lessons on Nazi Germany.
* GratuitousEnglish. Is prone to bouts of this when he's not in his teacher disguise.
-->''LET'S SKINNY DIVING!''
* HandsomeLech: He is handsome, but when he's alone with Ryuko his actions and body language pretty much amount to constant sexual molestation.
* HotScientist: Used to conduct research on Life Fibers with Isshin. He even re-dons the lab coat (and ''only'' the lab coat) upon returning to Nudist Beach.
* HotTeacher: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]; he's not really a teacher, and he's only hot when he's not acting like one.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Played with. He's fully prepared to snipe [[spoiler:Berserk!Ryuko]] with an Anti-Kamui bullet, even when told there's no guarantee [[spoiler:she'd survive.]] [[DefiedTrope However]], Mako's effective CooldownHug on [[spoiler:a berserk Ryuko]] spares him from [[spoiler:potentially killing his own student.]]
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Can paralyze Tsumugu's trigger finger with an acupuncture needle from hundreds of yards away.
* InsistentTerminology: He absolutely hates the term Dotonbori Robo, so much so that he takes offense whenever his MiniMecha is called as such. He prefers the cooler sounding '''DTR'''.
* {{Leitmotif}}: If "犬Kあ3L" or "Suck your blood" start up when he's in the room, prepare for a strip tease.
-->''[[GratuitousEnglish You're so hot, good looking!]]''
* LensFlareCensor: His crotch and nipples tend to be obscured by patches of blinding pink light, lending otherwise serious scenes a bizarre bit of MoodDissonance.
* MrExposition: The only other people in the know about the uniforms are the Kiryuin family, and they're probably not going to open up to Ryuko any time soon, so...
* MrFanservice: [[ExaggeratedTrope Exaggerated]]. After he takes off his shades to reveal his good looks, he usually starts stripping and striking very erotic poses. Since resigning from the academy he's butt naked more often than not.
* MysteriousBacker: He secretly drops Ryuko through a trapdoor into the basement where she first finds Senketsu.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: When Ryuko is in his apartment. PlayedForLaughs.
* NoShirtLongJacket: How he goes about wearing lab coats.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: While at Honnouji Academy, he takes on the appearance and personality of a crusty old teacher who gives long, boring lessons. Even his real self spends much of his time with Ryuko stripping and acting seductive to the point that it's hard for her to take him seriously, all to keep her from asking too many questions.
* OneDegreeOfSeparation: He was a colleague of Ryuko's father, and now helps Ryuko at his request.
* OpaqueNerdGlasses: Part of his disguise, though they look more like tinted aviator shades than anything.
** TheGlassesComeOff: Every time he stops ObfuscatingStupidity and gets serious.
* TheParalyzer: He is very knowledgeable of {{Pressure Point}}s and, using acupuncture needles, is able to paralyze his targets.
* SexierAlterEgo: And requires merely a HairFlip and a GlassesPull to switch.
* SexyMentor: To Ryuko's consternation, his advice and stripping habit are unable to occur independently from each other. He's also perfectly willing to cross the teacher-student boundary in private.
** It's implied this was mostly an act, though, since his behaviour towards her becomes much less suggestive later on.
* ShamelessFanserviceGuy: While most Nudist Beach operatives treat nudity as protocol, Aikuro ''loves'' showing off, frequently posing erotically and removing his clothes for no reason.
* SurpriseCreepy: One that is unrelated to nudism, believe it or not. When he begins explaining [[spoiler:the truth behind Life Fibers]], he's suddenly framed in shadow while sporting an unsettling grin.
* TheTease: Really likes messing with Ryuko, since he knows she can't take a joke.
* TricksterMentor: Tries to play this card when Ryuko confronts him about Tsumugu attacking her but gets his bullshit instantly called. However, he does genuinely care about her.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: After reclaiming his rank as a "Splendid Naked Officer" in episode 14, Aikuro basically stops wearing clothes altogether.
* YouCanLeaveYourHatOn: Has unusual ways of offering advice or exposition, none of which involve keeping his clothes on. In later episodes his clothes gain the ability to ''remove themselves''.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: It's at its bluest when not in disguise.

----
* AbnormalAmmo[=/=]DepletedPhlebotinumShells[=/=]TrickBullet: His guns fire sewing needles made from a special alloy that can sever the connection between Life Fibers and the user.
** In episode 11, he gives Aikuro [[ChekhovsGun a bullet that is seemingly made out of Life Fibers.]]
* AceCustom: Like Mikisugi has a custom made DTR armed with [[MoreDakka Four Heavy Sewing Machineguns.]]
* AntiHero [[HeroAntagonist Antagonist]]: He opposes Satsuki's uniform-dominated world just as much as the other protagonists, but he hunts Ryuko and Senketsu instead because he thinks they pose a greater threat.
* AntiHero [[HeroAntagonist Antagonist]] [[VillainForgotToLevelGrind Forgot To Level Grind]]: In episode 12, he's considerably upset that he's hardly a match for Berserk!Ryuko and Nui Harime, and sets himself to train all over again.
* {{Badass}}: He beats Ryuko while she's wearing Senketsu at full strength.
** BackToBackBadasses: Later fights back-to-back with Ryuko in episode 15.
** BadassBiker: He's introduced riding a CoolBike.
** BadassNormal: Being a member of an anti-uniform organization, he has no Life Fibers to use for himself, yet his battle with Ryuko is mere child's play to him.
* BerserkButton: There are three things can drive this guy up the wall: the Kamui, being interrupted, and mentioning his sister Kinue post-mortem.
* BriefcaseBlaster: Carries a metal suitcase that contains an [[IKEAWeaponry disassembled]] SniperRifle.
* CatchPhrase: "Let me tell you two useful pieces of information..."
** MadLibsCatchPhrase: His advice always changes to fit the circumstances.
* ColdSniper: The guy never cracks a smile.
* CombatPragmatist: He will use guns, sniper rifles, grenades, mines, traps and remotely controlled rocket launchers to get the job done. Hell, he's the first one in the series to flat-out attack and disable Ryuko ''before'' she gets a chance to transform.
* TheComicallySerious: He can ask a teenage girl point blank to take her clothes off and then insist that he's not a pervert without a shred of irony. He also remains completely stone-faced in light of Mako's antics.
** Stretched to breaking point when he uses a custom DTR in Episode 20.
* CynicismCatalyst: The death of his sister Kinue, at least when it comes to all things Life Fiber-related.
* DelinquentHair: A [[MultiColoredHair red and black]] mohawk.
* FingerlessGloves: Wears these.
** ArmCannon[=/=]TrickedOutGloves: They can shoot giant seam rippers.
* GodzillaThreshold: He's this for Mikisugi, who calls for his presence when Senketsu starts evolving at an alarming rate.
* GunsAkimbo: Uses two sewing machine guns in episode 12.
* HealingShiv: His needles can paralyze and incapacitate anyone, though they also end up feeling better than ever before once they come to.
* ILetGwenStacyDie: [[CynicismCatalyst His sister]] believed in the [[ThePowerOfFriendship friendship]] between man and Kamui so earnestly that a Kamui took advantage of her and devoured her completely. This is the reason why he doesn't trust Kamui and wants all clothes with Life Fibers to be terminated.
* IOweYouMyLife: Aikuro saved him from a (not specified) life-threatening situation in the past, and will do anything to repay the favor. [[SubvertedTrope Except]] when the favor is "don't destroy the Kamui".
* MageKiller: He can render Goku Uniforms powerless thanks to his AntiMagic gun.
* NeverHurtAnInnocent: He shoots Mako with paralyzing needles to keep her out of his fight with Ryuko, then assures Ryuko that not only is Mako totally unharmed, but she'll be full of energy and rid of any diseases she may have had when she wakes up. Even Ryuko falls under this somewhat since he's targeting Senketsu and not her, but he's willing to make an exception when it becomes clear she won't be giving Senketsu up.
* NoNonsenseNemesis: Though the show maintains a high sense of slapstick and hijinks, Tsumugu is completely no-nonsense and one of the most dangerous foes Ryuko has encountered.
* OneManArmy: Single-handedly crushes three school clubs along with their leaders as well as Ryuko while armed with Senketsu.
* TheParalyzer: He is skilled in the use of acupuncture needles to paralyze targets. They are as dangerous as they are [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking therapeutic]].
* SleevesAreForWimps: The moment Tsumugu turned up to the gun show in that combat vest was the moment every viewer knew he meant '''business'''.
* SmokingIsCool: [[PreAssKickingOneLiner And he does it wherever he damn wants]].
* StealthPun: His WeaponOfChoice is a ''sewing machine gun''.
* StuffBlowingUp: His penchant for land mines and other trap-based explosives comes off as a bit excessive at times.
* ThemeNaming: "Tsumugu" is also the Japanese name of pongee, a soft thinly woven cloth. It can also be translated as "to spin yarn", which goes well with his sewing-related weaponry.
* ThisMeansWarpaint
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: Uses a lot of cotton reel-shaped grenades.
* TrapMaster: He's insanely efficient at setting traps, managing to wire an entire hallway with enough explosives to take off the top half of a building in a matter of seconds.
* UnusualEyebrows: They are thick and forked at the ends.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He's willing to go to great lengths to fight the proliferation of uniforms, but he's also determined to destroy Senketsu by any means necessary, even if it means taking Ryuko out with him.
* WouldHitAGirl: All bets are off once he kicks Ryuko in the gut and then pistol whips her for good measure.

* FamousLastWords: See the quote.
* PosthumousCharacter: Has been dead ''long'' before the series began, seeing as Isshin was present when she died.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Full-heartedly believed in this from what we know. Unfortunately this blew up in her face when a Kamui [[DeconstructedTrope exploited this]] and absorbed her completely due to her lack of will against it.
-->'''Aikuro:''' "People and clothing aren't enemies." Isn't that what Kinue said?
* RedHerring: A lot of fans speculated that she was Ryuko's mother due mainly to how Tsumugu mentioned the similarities between the two in their effort to befriend a Kamui, and the fact that Kinue's face was never fully revealed. The true identity of Ryuko's mother is later revealed in Episode 18.

* BadassGrandpa: Just because he was killed, that doesn't mean he went down without a fight. Subverted when it's revealed that [[spoiler:he only looks old because he altered his appearance.]]
** Scientists peak in their sixties, you know!
* BatmanGambit: Nui was sent by Satsuki to retrieve whatever he was working on and bring it back to the Kiryuins. By showing her the Rending Scissors and boldly touting them as his "life's work", Isshin managed to mislead her and prevent her from finding Senketsu, the Kamui he was developing, until it was too late.
* DeathByOriginStory: His death is what sets Ryuko off on her journey.
* DefectorFromDecadence: Used to serve Ragyo until he found out about the [[spoiler:secret of the Life Fibers]], escaped and founded [[LaResistance Nudist Beach.]]
* DefiantToTheEnd: After Nui stabbed him repeatedly with his own Rending Scissors, Isshin pulled out one of its blades and gave her a taste of her own medicine.
* {{Determinator}}: Especially considering that his opponent was [[spoiler:Nui]] of all people, Isshin took a lot of damage and still refused to die before Ryuko got there. He would have lasted longer if it weren't for the fire.
* DirtyOldMan: Subverted; Aikuro jokingly suggests Ryuko should chalk up Senketsu's design to her dad's tastes before admitting that he has absolutely no idea why it looks that way.
** Fridge Brilliance comes into play because [[RomanticismVersusEnlightenment he wouldn't give a damn about how it looks, as long as it does its job well.]]
** Also, he founded Nudist Beach, so that might have double-subverted this.
* EyepatchOfPower: Averted, since it really serves no purpose whatsoever except to make him look more eccentric.
* TheFaceless: Up until episode 8, his face is always obscured in some way in {{Flashback}}s and the damaged family photo.
* GiverOfLameNames: When Nui hears that he named his invention the "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Rending Scissors]]", she notes that he has a terrible naming sense. [[spoiler: This turns out to be {{Foreshadowing}}; he gave his daughter a name that could be translated as "abandoned child".]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: He was killed with the very same weapon he created. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Nui Harime:
-->"''How does it feel to have your life taken by the very research you dedicated your life to?''"
* IKnowKungFu: For an elderly scientist, he sure performs effective flying kicks.
* IWasQuiteALooker: He's an old hunchback now, but he was quite attractive in the past [[spoiler:as Soichiro Kiryuin]].
* MadScientist: Not necessarily in personality, but Isshin's appearance fit this trope so well that it was probably what he was going for.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Isshin spends so much time working on his research that he ends up being estranged from his daughter Ryuko, who ends up becoming a delinquent who barely knew her father. Combined with the fact that he never told her what exactly was going on until it was too late makes it easy for multiple people to manipulate her, culminating in [[spoiler:Ragyo brainwashing her by using images of a happy childhood with her mother to break her psyche]].
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: His design appears to be a deliberate throwback to 1970s anime.
* PapaWolf: He managed to drive Nui away right after he heard Ryuko approach, sparing his daughter's life.
* ParentalAbandonment: A less extreme case than usual; when Ryuko was still young, Isshin sent her to a boarding school and they didn't meet for the next couple of years. He seemed [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies to have his reasons, though.]]
* ParentalNeglect: According to Ryuko, Isshin focused much more on his research than on raising her.
* PlotTriggeringDeath: His murder is what starts Ryuko's quest for revenge.
* PosthumousCharacter: All that we know about him, including how he died, are gleaned from various characters' flashback.
* ReedRichardsIsUseless: {{Averted|Trope}}. He used his patents to fund Nudist Beach.
* RomanticismVersusEnlightenment: The Enlightened to Nui's Romanticism. He doesn't care about aesthetics, like giving a good name for his Rending Scissors, so long as the product of his efforts works well.
* ShearMenace: The creator of the Rending Scissors, which he first wielded against his killer to impressive effect.
** BifurcatedWeapon: They split into the two Scissor Blades wielded by Ryuko and his killer.
* TakeUpMySword: Literally pulls the red Scissor Blade out of his guts and gives it to Ryuko in the episode 8 flashback.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: A rather literal example. The mouse that is seen sitting on his shoulder in flashbacks, which had been included in a description of him by Senketsu, basically disappeared after a brief appearance.
* WizardBeard: Although he's not so much a wizard but a dedicated scientist instead.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: [[spoiler:Isshin simply changed his appearance to that of an old man.]]

->"''I'm gonna wake you up to reality by smacking you in the face with wads of cash!''"

->Voiced by: Makoto Awane

The ruthless and smug Student Council President of Naniwa Kinman High School and his family's conglomerate. His Takarada Bucks have greater value in Osaka than the national currency. With unlimited resources at his disposal, he's paid every single resident of Osaka to become his private army.

His family controls half of Japan, while the other half belongs to the Kiryuins.
----
* AceCustom: His golden crab DTR, which carries an assortment of weaponry, such as gourd missiles and sticky paste.
* AbnormalAmmo: His {{Mooks}} use guns that fire ''money''.
* ArtShift: Gets [[http://i222.photobucket.com/albums/dd253/Senbonzakura_976/KilllaKill-20-Large19.jpg a more realistic portrait]] when [[spoiler:saluting the departure of Nudist Beach's battleship.]]
* AssShove: Sanageyama beats him by [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything thrusting his sword up his rear multiple times]].
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Despite his ridiculous looks, his shrewd tactics give Sanageyama's forces an even harder time than the other elites.
* BlingBlingBang: His PowerArmor, on top of being [[BlingOfWar golden]], can fire gourd-shaped missiles made of gold!
* CallingYourAttacks: "[[MacrossMissileMassacre Sennari Gourd Missile Shower!]]"
* CoolSword: Another weapon what he gives to his {{Mooks}} are swords whose blades are made out of ''money.''
* DefiantToTheEnd: Despite being defeated, anally violated and visibly terrified for his life, he continues to shit-talk Satsuki while pinned on the ground with a sword in his face, even when restrained and faced with the wrath of Satsuki and her Elite Four.
* FictionFiveHundred: His family's conglomerate is so wealthy that his own money is treated as more valuable than the Japanese yen itself; in addition, he can cheerfully literally throw money at Osaka to turn the city's residents into his personal army, and even happily pays for any rebuilding that needs to be done afterwards.
* GiantEnemyCrab: When fighting Sanageyama, he wears a [[BlingOfWar golden]] PowerArmor that looks like a crab. It's surprisingly effective against Goku Uniforms, albeit not against a Three-Star. It even has a [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything weak point in the back!]]
* GoldTooth: Wears a grill on his front teeth that reads "ZENI" (meaning "money").
* TheIdiotFromOsaka: Averted; he may live in Osaka and fit the stereotype of a greedy son of a bitch, but he's also a tactical mastermind who gives Honnouji Academy's forces [[JustForPun a run for their money]].
* InkSuitActor: Mako's seiyuu, Aya Suzaki, mentioned on the radio show that she was shocked when she met Makoto Awane because his face so closely resembles Takarada's.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: His greedy image belies the fact that he [[spoiler:whole-heartedly backs up Nudist Beach's plan to stop Ragyo's AssimilationPlot.]]
* KansaiRegionalAccent: Down to using ''wate'' for himself, the Kansai version of ''[[JapanesePronouns watashi]]''.
* MeaningfulName: "''Takara''" means "treasure", and "''kane''" means "money".
* MoneyFetish: He has taken Osaka's history as a merchant town to such heart that everything from his battle tactics to his grill involves money in some shape or form.
* MysteriousBenefactor: To Nudist Beach, which shares the Takarada Conglomerate's anti-Kiryuin goals, albeit for different reasons. [[spoiler:Taken to the next level in episode 20, in which he reveals that the defeated Takaradas have poured every last zeni of their remaining resources into building Nudist Beach's battleship.]]
* PragmaticVillain: He's not above using ordinary folk ([[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney or as he calls them, combat citizens blinded by money]]) as part of his forces to make sure Sanageyama and his forces are outnumbered. He's even willing to let Osaka be destroyed, confident that he can pay people to rebuild the entire city.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: Unlike the other schools that rely on their strength or guile alone, Takarada rules Osaka by using supply and demand to win everyone's favor. Even if Osaka is destroyed in the raid, Takarada is confident that he can pay everyone in town to rebuild it.
* StudentCouncilPresident: Of his own school.
* VillainousValour: His army routs, leaving Takarada alone against not just Sanageyama but all Elite Four and Satsuki herself. He admits to being frightened, but refuses to surrender and fights on by himself, hopeless though it is.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: To the point where it's tough to call him a villain at all - he'll use human wave tactics, expend vast amounts of resources, and even ''burn down his own city''... but since it keeps the Osakan economy running and its citizens paid, everyone's totally OK with it.
** Especially so since he was only defending his school and city against an (apparently) unprovoked attack
* WingdingEyes: His eyes sometimes switch to a [[MoneyFetish yen symbol]].

!Kiryuin Conglomerate
[[folder:General]]
A massive multi-national conglomerate owned by the Kiryuin family, with access to immense resources and power. Of the corporations that are part of the conglomerate, the REVOCS Corporation, which controls 90% of the world's apparel market at the start of the show, seems to be the most important, with Ragyo making her office at the REVOCS tower.
----
* BigScrewedUpFamily: Every known member of the Kiryuin bloodline [[spoiler:has has had at least one other member try to kill them]], and that's just the tip of the iceberg.
* {{Fiction 500}}: At the start of the show, the conglomerate basically owns 90% of the world's apparel market with their flagship company REVOCS Corporation. Their wealth is so vast that Satsuki can basically turn a beggar into a millionaire with a snap of her fingers, as long as she feels they earned it.
* MegaCorp: They have near-monopoly on the clothes market not just in Japan but the entire world. They must have branch offices and daughter companies in pretty much every country in the world.
* NGOSuperpower: Between their financial power stemming from near complete control of clothes market and access to Life Fiber clothing they are probably one of the most powerful organizations on the planet. Its quite possible that they are more powerful than most governments. Honnouji, for example, is a PrivatelyOwnedSociety.
* SdrawkcabName[=/=]SignificantAnagram: The REVOC part of the name is "cover" spelled backwards. Ragyo openly preaches to her employees that clothing is the [[Literature/BookOfGenesis evidence of man's original sin by consuming the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, thus learning shame of nakedness and free will.]] By having near unprecedented control of the manufacture of clothing, REVOCS practically holds hostage a basic need that prevents that shame and protection from the elements.

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kiryuuin_ragyo_1218.bmp
->"[[CatchPhrase La vie est drôle]]... ''Life is indeed amusing''."

->Voiced by: Creator/RomiPark

Satsuki's mother, CEO of REVOCS, leader of the Kiryuin Conglomerate, and the head of Honnouji Academy's board of directors.

Her role is fairly minor in the first half of the series until her formal introduction in Episode 12, from then more about her is revealed. She plans on enslaving the human race to Life Fibers, and has been using REVOCS for this very reason.

'''Spoilers below, you've been warned.''' [[labelnote:*]][[RedundancyDepartmentOfRedundancy Yes, we're aware of the general spoiler warning above.]] [[WalkingSpoiler This is a double-warning.]][[/labelnote]]
----
* EightiesHair: During flashbacks, when [[spoiler:experimenting on her daughters.]]
* AbsoluteCleavage: Her favorite outfits sport this.
* AbusiveParents: It was rather subtle at first, but Episode 18 proved that, without a doubt, Ragyo is a ''horrible'' parent. [[CurbstompBattle She beats the hell out]] of [[spoiler:Satsuki]] after the latter tried to rebel against her, and [[spoiler: even rips off her clothing, subsequently disposing of her like trash.]] She also experimented on her unnamed second daughter and casually threw her away when she died during said experiments. [[spoiler: By the end of Episode 18, it turns out the second daughter survived as well.]]
* AlmightyMom: And that's putting it ''lightly''. Even without a Kamui she can easily beat the living shit out of [[spoiler: Satsuki]].
* [[ArchnemesisDad Archnemesis Mom]]: [[spoiler:Considering that Ryuko and Satsuki, her daughter are trying to stop her plans of world domination.]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Ragyo is not only the CEO of REVOCS, she's easily the most powerful character shown thus far in combat.
* {{Badass}}: Firmly establishes herself as this when she lays the most violent smackdown in the entire series on [[spoiler: Satsuki]].
* BarehandedBladeBlock: Her bare fist is sufficient to stop [[spoiler:and break]] a sword as sharp as the Bakuzan.
* BatmanGambit: It is implied that she wants Nui to anger Satsuki so she can witness the full extent of Junketsu's power, so she lets her top designer do what she pleases.
* BiggerBad: In the first half of the series, she has more of a background presence as she observes the conflict between Ryuko and Satsuki. She controls two of the world's most powerful organizations, is the reason why Satsuki is Honnouji Academy's StudentCouncilPresident, and indirectly responsible for [[spoiler: the death of Isshin Matoi.]] She does take reigns as primary BigBad [[spoiler:once Satsuki's true intentions are revealed.]]
* BigOlEyebrows: We know which side of the family Satsuki got her eyebrows from.
* ContraltoOfDanger: Ragyo along with Satsuki have noticeably prominent deep voices compared to the rest of the women in the cast, especially when it comes to exercising their authority over others, although they have their share of action as well.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: The head of REVOCS, the world's largest apparel corporation, as well as the conglomerate in general.
* CurbstompBattle: Delivers a crushing one to [[spoiler:Satsuki]] in episode 18, further cementing the dominance she has over [[spoiler:her daughter. She even does this with her bare hands, without either a Kamui or a Goku Uniform, while Satuski was wearing Junketsu.]]
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: The inner rings of her eyes match her hair color, natch.
* {{Dark|ActionGirl}} ActionMom: If Episode 18 is of any indication, she can and ''will'' kick some serious ass. Just ask [[spoiler: Satsuki.]]
* DepravedBisexual: If her behavior towards [[ParentalIncest her daughters is of any indication.]]
* DidntSeeThatComing: Inverted, she was pretty confident that Ryuko wouldn't be able to [[spoiler:break out of her mind control.]] But when she did, Ragyo was very pleasantly surprised because it made her realize that [[spoiler:Ryuko is actually her daughter whom she thought was dead.]]
* TheDogBitesBack: In episode 17, [[spoiler:delivered by none other than Satsuki, as revenge for [[DisappearedDad Soichiro]]'s death.]]
* EvilAlbino: Her reddish eyes, silk-white skin and mostly-silver hair give off this effect.
* EvilIsHammy: On top of being the BigBad, she's one of the most bombastic characters in the series, to the point where she doesn't even ''need'' to be physically on-screen to outham everyone else.
** One of the earliest examples consists of her making a very grandiose speech about REVOCS' motto, without showing herself to her audience until the speech's very end.
** Next up is when a [[spoiler:COVERS]] projection of her reduces the Elite Four into silence as [[spoiler: Ira tries to interrupt her badmouthing on a captured Satsuki.]]
* EvilLaugh: Has a ''very creepy'' one during episode 18, before [[PeoplePuppets assuming control of ''all'' Honnouji Students to use as her pawns.]]
** NoblewomansLaugh: Given her status as the director of this world's largest corporation, she dishes them out without fail when hamming it up.
* EvilMatriarch: She fills this role for Satsuki [[spoiler:and Ryuko.]]
* EvilOverlord: She's even more powerful than her daughter, since she runs the most powerful conglomerate in the world that controls Honnouji Academy.
* EvilutionaryBiologist: Episode 18 reveals that she performed brutal experiments on [[spoiler:her daughters]] with a twisted goal of infusing life fibers within human bodies. When [[spoiler:Ryuko]] supposedly dies from the experiments, she casually dumps her as a failed test subject.
* ExcessiveEvilEyeshadow: The only character who always wears noticeable makeup, and just happens to be the evillest.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: While not easily noticeable, her eyes are ringed and multi-colored.
* TheFaceless: Until episode 11.
* FeatherMotif: Her hair bares semblance to a bird's wings.
* GratuitousFrench: "''La vie est drôle.''" ("Life is funny.")
* HalfHumanHybrid: The reason for her superhuman abilities is that her body is interwoven with life fibers.
* HolyBacklight: A rainbow-colored one.
* ImpossibleHourglassFigure: Her appearance in Episode 13 really accentuates it.
* InTheBack: [[spoiler:Satsuki]] runs her through in Episode 17 while she is distracted by Ryuko.
* InTheBlood: Satsuki apparently takes after her a lot, from having their own HolyBacklight, to their habit of delivering EvilOverlord speeches. [[spoiler: Her younger daughter, Ryuko, also inherits the highlights in her hair.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: In fact, she all but outright rejects such a concept.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Blumenkranz"[[note]]German for "Floral Wreath" or "Floral Crown"[[/note]], a soaring, powerful song, at times eerily soft; with [[OminousLatinChanting Ominous German Chanting]] and lyrics calling the world cruel, and asking why the listener would cry over the singer throwing away dead flowers. [[spoiler:Which probably has something to do with Ragyo abandoning Ryuko as an infant]].
* LesCollaborateurs: Is ultimately a servant of COVERS, the will of [[spoiler:the Primordial Life Fiber.]]
* LightIsNotGood: She emits her own HolyBacklight (in fact she one-ups Satsuki with a rainbow one). She's also the BigBad.
* LukeIAmYourFather: Or rather, [[spoiler:Ryuko, I Am Your Mother]].
* ManipulativeBitch: In episode 20, she taunts Ryuko to come to Honnouji Academy and fulfil her desire for revenge against her and Nui, [[BatmanGambit confident she will do just that.]] [[spoiler: This was so she can capture her to be brainwashed, which she succeeds.]]
* MonsterClown: She presents herself as this in episode 17. Either that or she's channelling [[Videogame/FinalFantasyVI Kefka]] or [[Videogame/FinalFantasyVIII Ultimecia]].
* MulticoloredHair: Ragyo's hair has a rainbow spectrum highlighting her white hair.
* NighInvulnerable: Her connection with [[spoiler:the Primordial Life Fiber]] allows her to survive practically ''anything'', from getting impaled InTheBack by [[spoiler:Satsuki]] to [[spoiler:a full-on ''decapitation'']].
** HealingFactor: Her bond with the Life Fibers has some benefits. Namely, any wounds dealt to her will very quickly close and [[spoiler:as long as a single Life Fiber connects her head to her body, she can survive anything.]]
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Ragyo delivers an absolutely ''brutal'' one to [[spoiler:Satsuki]]. This is especially jarring, given that [[spoiler:the latter]] never lost a single fight until Episode 18.
* NonActionBigBad: [[OrcusOnHisThrone Her first full appearances only has her telling Satsuki to continue on her conquest of Japan in order to further their plans of world domination,]] [[SubvertedTrope at least until]] Satsuki [[spoiler:[[InTheBack runs Bakuzan through her]].]] Not only does she [[spoiler:survive this unexpected betrayal]], but she goes on to [[spoiler:[[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beat Satsuki within an inch of her life]].]]
* NonchalantDodge: She barely moved her head a bit to dodge a missile shot at her.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Ragyo isn't afraid to touch her daughter in a rather intimate manner while she compliments her wearing Junketsu, or when bathing her in herbs to enhance her connection with Kamui.
* OminousLatinChanting: "Blumenkranz", sung in German, roughly transcribed and translated:
-->"''Diese Welt ist grausam, es ist traurig aber wahr.''"
-->"''This world is cruel, it's sad but true.''"
* OrcusOnHisThrone: She doesn't meddle in her daughter's affairs regarding Ryuko and taking over Japan, essentially letting her do what she pleases and only providing her with indirect support via the materials needed to construct Goku Uniforms or military equipment. Her reason for doing so is because she believes youth should settle their own affairs.
* ParentalIncest: Her behavior towards Satsuki is certainly suggestive of it, starting in episode 16 when she bathes her daughter with her bare hands in a less-than-motherly manner. It gets a ''lot'' worse after that. [[spoiler: During her fight with Satsuki, she separates Satsuki from Junketsu by ''stroking her crotch.'' Later, we see she has hung Satsuki in a cage by her arms, naked. As Ragyo taunts her defeated daughter, she runs her hands up and down Satsuki's back and between her legs then slaps her ass repeatedly.]]
** In episode 21 she [[spoiler:has what looks like a threesome with Nui and Ryuko]], complete with plenty of groping.
* PeoplePuppets: She can use Life Fibers to brainwash other people into becoming mindless soldiers for her, a process she calls Mental Refitting. [[spoiler:Ryuko managing to [[FightingFromTheInside shake off the Refitting]] is what clues Ragyo in to her identity.]]
* PowerGlows: Her radiance is so bright that her personal assistant needs sunglasses to look at her.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives Satsuki one [[spoiler: [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown in the middle of beating her senseless.]]]]
--> '''Ragyo''': Wearing Junketsu in this battle was a terrible mistake, but of course, [[spoiler:you wouldn't even be able to stand before me if not for its power!]]
* TheReveal: [[WhamEpisode Episode 18]] hands out a big one: [[spoiler:she is Ryuko's birth mother, making Ryuko and Satsuki sisters.]]
* ScarsAreForever: She has scars on her back that look like Goku Uniform stars.
* SinisterShades: Wore a pair when she was younger.
* SlasherSmile: Her icy façade is just that. When the action gets going, Ragyo shows how much she enjoys hurting people with a sadistic grin.
* TheSociopath: She does not give a damn about human life--not even her own next of kin--beyond the prospect of having a means to her own ends.
* StatuesqueStunner: Even taller than Satsuki.
* SuperStrength: She is able to inflict serious damage on [[spoiler:[[LightningBruiser Satsuki, even wearing Junketsu,]]]] with nothing but her '''bare fists'''. And this is without wearing a Kamui or a Goku Uniform.
* ThemeNaming: The "ra" in her name means "gauze", a type of thin silk.
* TranshumanTreachery: Her family has been protecting the Primordial Life Fiber and became powerful because of it. She sold off humanity to be consumed by them.
* [[TheManBehindTheMan The Woman Behind the Woman]]: Her being one of the directors of the school is one of the reasons why Satsuki is able to have her AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil.
* UnlimitedWardrobe: She has an impressive array of white clothing that appear to be sentient.
* WalkingSpoiler: Once she takes the center stage in the second part of the series, bombshell after bombshell after bombshell followed suit.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: She can sacrifice the lives of countless innocents and feel perfectly content. Ragyo ultimately serves as an adversary to both Ryuko and Satsuki, cementing her as a major antagonist.
* WomanInWhite: Owns hundreds of stylish outfits, all-pristine white, and fits perfectly in the sinister connotations of the trope.
* WouldHarmAChild: She coolly discards [[spoiler:her ''newborn daughter'']] the moment she finds out that the experiments aren't going as planned.

[[folder:Junketsu]]
!!Junketsu
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/junketsu_8461.png
The Kamui Soichiro presented to Satsuki when she was a little girl. Satsuki retrieved it from its confinement to test it against Ryuko.
----

* AmbiguousGender: Assuming all Kamui have an assigned gender, Junketsu's is still unknown (since it has yet to speak).
* AxCrazy: Is far more violent and savage than Senketsu, even attempting to kill Satsuki when she first put it on.
* BlackEyesOfCrazy: Its sclera turn black when it bonds to Satsuki. It's more accentuated [[spoiler:with Ragyo and later Ryuko, though.]]
* BlingOfWar: Junketsu looks less like a SailorFuku and more like a full-blown military uniform laced with gold silk brocade. Soichiro even called it her "wedding dress".
* BloodLust: Like all Kamui, it feeds off its host's blood.
* ChainmailBikini: Leaves most of Satsuki's body exposed, but grants her inhuman durability nevertheless.
* DeathCryEcho: Lets out a faint, echoing scream once [[spoiler:Ryuko breaks free from its control by ripping it off to shred, although it survives and is sewed back together, along with some of Ryuko's blood and Senketsu's Life Fibers.]]
* EvilCounterpart: To Senketsu, first being worn by Ryuko's rival, Satsuki.
* HeelFaceTurn: Of a sort: it becomes more tame and synchronizes with Satsuki [[spoiler:after being injected with a mix of Ryuko and Satsuki's blood and Senketsu's Life Fibers.]]
* GrapplingHookPistol: One of Junketsu's shoulder fins can be fired to this effect.
* JetPack: Junketsu Senpu, [[spoiler:learned by Satsuki during her brief time with Senketsu.]]
* LeotardOfPower: When [[spoiler:Ryuko]] wore it.
* LotusEaterMachine: Junketsu had been altered by Nui to be one to brainwash [[spoiler:Ryuko]].
* PowerAtAPrice: Like Senketsu, Junketsu requires her blood to activate. ''Unlike'' Senketsu, it's actively trying to consume her and is putting an enormous strain on her body.
* PrettyButterflies: Junketsu resembles a butterfly when [[spoiler:Ragyo]] puts it on.
* PuppeteerParasite: Influences [[spoiler:Ryuko]] while she's wearing it, making her more bloodthirsty and vicious.
* PureIsNotGood: Even its name means pure, but good it is not.
* SealedEvilInACan: Was locked away by Ragyo until Satsuki awoke it.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Its transformed form covers even less skin than Senketsu does. [[spoiler:Averted when bonded to Ryuko, where it covers significantly more skin.]]
* SymbioticPossession: Has this dynamic with Satsuki due to her dominating its bloodlust with her will.
* VerticalMechaFins: A rare non-mecha example when Satsuki activates it.
* TheVoiceless: Unlike Senketsu, Junketsu never speaks or otherwise vocalises. [[spoiler:Until Ryuko rips it off from herself, then you can hear a faint scream coming from it.]]

->Voiced by: Creator/YukariTamura

The Grand Couturier of the REVOCS Corporation, dispatched by Ragyo herself to shake things up at Honnouji Academy. Initially dismissing her for her adorable appearance and childish mannerisms, Ryuko quickly discovers this mysterious girl has a much darker secret than she could have ever imagined...

[[WalkingSpoiler Just like Ragyo]], '''spoilers below.'''

----
* ActionFashionista: She's Grand Couturier of REVOCS, and can also take on a fully powered Kamui user like Ryuko.
* ActorAllusion: She's voiced by Creator/YukariTamura, who also voiced MagicalGirl [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Nanoha Takamachi]]. Why is this an example, you ask? When she pulls out the other half of Ryuko's scissor blade, she twirls and spins it around the same way a MagicalGirl would.
** In episode 20 she says she understands how Ryuko is thinking, similar to how Nanoha does with her opponents. Her intentions certainly weren't as benevolent as Nanoha's, though.
** She also [[{{Bokukko}} uses the masculine pronoun]] ''[[UsefulNotes/JapanesePronouns boku]]'' despite her cute and feminine demeanor, rather like [[VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry Rika Furude]] does, and she also hides a cruel, manipulative nature, like [[VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry Bernkastel]].
* AmbiguouslyGay: She's rather touchy-feely with Ryuko and Satsuki. Considering that she's a super-[[AlwaysCamp fashion designer]]... by the end of episode 21 she's not really ambiguous anymore after [[spoiler:having a threesome with Ragyo and Ryuko]]. Then she is shown to [[spoiler:really enjoy a kiss from Ryuko]], after which she mentions that [[spoiler:Ryuko is a better kisser than Ragyo.]]
* ArchEnemy: The fact that she [[spoiler:killed Ryuko's dad]] makes her Ryuko's most hated nemesis.
* AnArmAndALeg: Ryuko cuts off [[spoiler:her arms]] in Episode 22, and then Senketsu [[spoiler:absorbs them]].
%%* ArmlessBiped: How she operates after said AnArmAndLeg moment, even continuing to sew [[spoiler:Shinra Kouketsu]] with ''her own mouth''.
* ArtificialHuman: Was somehow created by [[spoiler:Ragyo]] using the [[spoiler:Primordial Life Fiber]] as an artificial womb.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: It only takes her ''one glance'' to tell where a Goku Uniform's Banshi is. The kicker, it's a transformed three-star Goku Uniform. It also takes her only '''[[FingerpokeOfDoom one pinky]]''' [[CurbStompBattle to rip it to shreds.]] She even does this with Senketsu, but fails because unlike a Goku Uniform, Senketsu (and possibly Kamui in general) was [[CrazyPrepared created with multiple Banshi.]]
** In episode 20, she manages to place ''a lot'' of tacking needles in specific points of Ryuko's body in the middle of their battle. [[spoiler: These tacking needles set the way for Ryuko's union with Junketsu as well as Ragyo's brainwashing.]]
* AxCrazy: Nui almost never loses her childish smile, but is a remorseless murderer. [[spoiler: Until Episode 22 that is, when she goes off the deep end when she loses her arms.]]
* {{Badass}}: She doesn't rely on Goku Uniforms, yet totally dumbfounds the Elite Four with her ability to crush a Three-Star uniform with ''just her pinky'', and nonchalantly repels just about every attack thrown at her, even Ryuko's powered-up mode.
* BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad: As close as possible to it-- fair is foul and foul is fair.
* BaitAndSwitchBoss: After she defeats Sanageyama, Nui offers to fight Ryuko in his place, which Satsuki accepts.
* BatmanGambit: When Ryuko falls into a HeroicBSOD and refuses to wear Senketsu again, Nui takes advantage of Ryuko's latent desire to protect the helpless by disguising herself as a foolhardy yet determined student who gets in trouble with the Student Council, renewing her will to fight so they can resume their battle. Nui herself [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this:
-->'''Nui''': Your reactions are so predictable that it's downright adorable!
* BeatStillMyHeart: Inflicts one on ''herself'' after [[spoiler:Ryuko stabs her in the chest,]] only to reveal [[spoiler:she is also a human who's interwoven with Life Fibers since her birth.]]
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Unlike other characters, she never seems to get any dirt or mess on her face and clothes despite things like being caught in an explosion. It's averted once, when she loses her eye to [[spoiler:Isshin Matoi.]]
** DoubleSubverted and {{Exaggerated}} in episode 20 when she fights Ryuko. When she gets stabbed, she coughs up BloodFromTheMouth but soon after [[spoiler:reveals herself as a Life Fiber hybrid]], and not only does her wound and the tear in her dress close, but ''all the blood she lost gets sucked back into her body'' and leaves her clean as a whistle.
** Averted like all hell in Episode 22, when [[spoiler:Ryuko uses both the scissor blades to cut off her arms and they can't regenerate.]]
* BlessedWithSuck: The Life Fibers [[spoiler:within her body]] grant her unparalleled resistance over [[spoiler:other Life Fibers,]] but at the same time make her unable to [[spoiler:wear a Kamui like Senketsu or Junketsu.]]
* BlondesAreEvil: Has strawberry blonde hair. Fittingly enough, she's one of the most evil characters in the series, right behind [[WhiteHairBlackHeart Ragyo]].
* {{Bokukko}}: She uses the masculine pronoun ''[[UsefulNotes/JapanesePronouns boku]]'' despite her incredibly girly behavior and appearance. Naturally, no one suspects anything when she refers to herself as ''boku'' while [[spoiler:disguised as a male student.]]
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: A peculiarly crasser example than most, she doesn't remember defeating and humiliating Sanageyama when he challenges her because, according to her, "when a woman changes her underwear, she puts the past behind her."
* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: Rei Hououmaru spirits her away in a chopper after [[spoiler:Ryuko lops off her two arms,]] but she's clearly not happy with it, even lashing out at Ragyo's secretary until the latter reminds her [[spoiler:she still has to complete Shinra Kouketsu.]]
* ContraltoOfDanger: Inverted. She has a high-pitched and cute-sounding voice, which ends up being played for danger, and fear instead by contrasting her voice with Satsuki's. She's also highly competent in battle despite not having ClothesMakeTheSuperman applied to her like other characters.
* CreepyChild: A teenage girl who appears cute and childish on the surface, but is actually extremely murderous and more intelligent than she lets on.
* CuteAndPsycho: [[Pantheon/{{PersonalAppearance}} The pantheon goddess of it.]] She never lets up that playful and carefree attitude, even as she proclaims she was responsible for [[spoiler:killing Ryuko's father]]. She didn't even change her tune while she sunk the Rending Scissors into him in a flashback.
** CuteIsEvil: Who would have thought this adorable girl is responsible for [[spoiler:murdering Ryuko's father.]]
** Later, she manipulates Ryuko into a scenario that forces her to wear Senketsu [[spoiler:by disguising herself as a helpless young man,]] [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy knowing full well that her compassion wouldn't dare let Ryuko abandon someone, which allows her to corner Ryuko and inevitably cut Senketsu into pieces.]]
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: She disguises herself to forcefully break Ryuko out of her HeroicBSOD [[HopeSpot to lead her to a dangerous trap that leads to her to destroy Senketsu]]. She also makes sure that the Mankanshokus aren't there to save her like before by getting Mako in trouble with the Disciplinary Committee and beating up her dad so her mom and brother are distracted caring for him.
* DarkActionGirl: She is brutally sadistic beyond belief, to the point even Satsuki feels unease around her.
* DissonantLaughter: She gleefully laughs at all the carnage Ryuko causes during her beserker rage.
* DoppelgangerAttack: Can create entire armies of herself by scattering around smaller versions of her dress.
* TheDragon: To Ragyo.
** DragonWithAnAgenda: She acts entirely on her own whims. Ragyo is aware of this, but plays along with her, with the excuse of being an artist; even the CEO of the most powerful company in the world cannot rein in her whims.
*** In practice though, this attribute is {{Downplayed}} to the point it might as well not apply. While Ragyo and Nui herself insist that Nui follows her own agenda first and foremost, Nui has yet to be shown to have an end-goal of her own in mind, let alone one that deviates significantly with Ragyo's, plus none of Nui's flights of fancy ever seem to do anything that actually goes against Ragyo's intentions.
* TheDreaded: [[TheStoic Satsuki]] momentarily loses her cool and calls Sanageyama to retreat when she arrives. That should tell you a lot about her.
* ElegantGothicLolita: She's dressed in the Sweet Lolita style to compliment her sickeningly sweet and childish demeanor.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Let's see... She drops in between the crossfire of Ryuko and Sanageyama's King of the Hill match without a hint of worry, with LimitedAnimation and somehow facing both of them at the same time. Satsuki calls Sanageyama to retreat, and when he doesn't listen, Nui blocks the full brunt of his transformed Goku Uniform's attack with just a parasol without a problem, unravels said uniform with her pinky, and nonchalantly knocks him off the edge of the stage. Let's just say, she's very unsettling.
* EvilIsDeathlyCold: Senketsu comments that her hand feels ice cold when she touches him.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: One of the series' subtler ones--the cutesy whorls and sparkles in her good eye form a [[http://s785.photobucket.com/user/Razormusik/media/1392510720189_zps21e9cd3b.png.html grinning death mask]].
* EyepatchOfPower: It's shaped like a combination of the katakana for her name.
* EyeScream: [[spoiler:Isshin Matoi]] cut out her left eye ''with giant scissors''. HighPressureBlood ensued.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Nui is a subversion, as her voice is very high and cute. But in episode 22 [[spoiler: [[VillainousBreakdown she looses her cool big time]]]], and her voice gets a lot deeper and rougher.
* TheFakeCutie: A cute and bubbly girl she may be, but she's also a remorseless psychopath who [[spoiler:murdered Ryuko's father.]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: She acts very sweet and playful, yet in reality, she's a sadist who would rather watch her opponent suffer horribly than kill them swiftly.
* FingerPokeOfDoom: She can [[AllClothUnravels pull apart a whole Goku Uniform with her fingernail, which has rows of tiny hooks that can snap the Life Fiber holding it together]].
* GigglingVillain: Part of her [[FauxAffablyEvil cutesy girlish façade]] is a rather sing-song tone of voice and cheerful manner of speaking.
* GratuitousFrench: Occasionally tosses in a "non" or some similar simple French, such as calling Ryuko "mon amie". She also [[BorrowedCatchphrase borrows Ragyo's catchphrase]] in episode 19.
--> '''Nui''': "[[MesACrowd Mon mignon, prêt-à-porter!]]"
* HairDecorations: She wears a big, pink bow.
%%* HeroKiller: Downplayed. Her only victims so far are [[spoiler:Isshin Matoi,]] Sanageyama and Senketsu, although the latter two weren't fatal and recovered in time to get back at her later in the series. She still puts everyone in danger of death everytime she appears, though.
* HighPressureBlood: Done when [[spoiler:Isshin Matoi]] cut out her left eye. Done again when [[spoiler:Ryuko throws her Scissor Blade at Nui's back, pinning her to the ''S.S. Naked Sun'''s deck]]. Taken to [[CrossesTheLineTwice hilarious extremes]] when Ryuko chops off [[spoiler:both of her arms]] and she emits fountains of blood, much of which is sprayed directly into Rei's face.
* HumanoidAbomination: Her superhuman strength and resilience is attributed to [[spoiler:being born directly from the Primordial Life Fiber's artificial womb, in contrast to [[HalfHumanHybrid Ryuko]].]]
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Apart from her ParasolOfPain and Scissor Blade, she was known to have fought with a tape measure. A ''razor'' tape measure. Also ties to stab somebody in the neck with a knitting needle later on.
* InLoveWithYourCarnage: She loves to watch Satsuki and Ryuko fight when they wear their Kamui but what really excites her is [[spoiler:Ryuko going on a rampage in her berserk form.]]
* {{Kawaiiko}}: You might just get [[TastesLikeDiabetes diabetes]] from how sweet she looks, acts and sounds.
* KickingAssInAllHerFinery: An ElegantGothicLolita who can run circles around Ryuko without batting an eye.
* KnightOfCerebus: Her introduction marks a pretty noticeable shift in tone for the show, given her personality, display of power, and TheReveal that she [[spoiler:killed Isshin.]] Whenever she shows up, you know things are about to get serious.
* {{Leitmotif}}: The second half of "Kiる厭[=KiLL=]", comprised of creepy chimes, [[CreepyChildrenSinging eerie choral stings]], and oppressive beats to [[SoundtrackDissonance underline]] her [[DissonantSerenity unsettling presence]].
* LimitedAnimation: A constant detail underlining how she is somehow... ''off''. She almost never seems to make full-body movements, and instead stiffly hops from place to place and spends battles standing still except for her right hand attacking or parrying. The three times she's forced to quickly dodge an attack in her fight with Ryuko, she jumps into the air, spinning around like a cardboard cut-out, stiff as a board. This is later used to full effect in Episode 18, against a revitalized Ryuko she is forced to make completely animated motions and [[spoiler:is significantly outclassed while doing so.]]
* MadeOfIron: Brushes off trip mines and laser cannons with a scoff.
* MadnessMantra: After [[spoiler:Ryuko cuts and absorbs both of her arms,]] she begins yelling "You're pissing me off!" nonstop until Rei picks her up with a chopper.
* ManipulativeBitch: She reveals to Ryuko that [[spoiler:she killed her father,]] knowing Ryuko would lose control of Senketsu in her rage and die in the process.
** Later, when she finds herself banned from the school and Ryuko is too doubtful of herself to fight her, she [[spoiler:poses as a male student sympathizer]] and persuades her to get back on her feet just so she can lose control again, also getting Mako in trouble with the Disciplinary Committee so she won't be able to help Ryuko like before.
* MarionetteMaster: She can use Life Fibers to control life-sized puppets.
* MasterOfDisguise: She is able to disguise herself and her dolls into someone else with Life Fibers, using it to great effect to [[spoiler:lure Ryuko into a trap.]]
* MediumAwareness: She leans on her own intro subtitle and manages to caress Satsuki's hair through ''[[SplitScreen Split Screens]]''.
* MegaTwinTails: She wears her hair up in two huge ringlets.
* MesACrowd: Can apparently make huge hordes of clones pop out of her umbrella.
* MiniDressOfPower: She wears a [[PinkMeansFeminine one piece pink dress]] [[ElegantGothicLolita in the Sweet Lolita style]]. She's also strong enough to treat battles as if they were games.
* MorphicResonance: Her eye is still missing when she's [[spoiler:disguised as Shinjiro Nagita,]] forcing her to [[PeekABangs cover it]] with [[spoiler:"his" hair.]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: At first it seems subverted as [[spoiler:she brought [[AchillesInHisTent Ryuko out of her tent]] only to crush her again]] but in the long run she actually managed to [[spoiler:motivate Ryuko to grow stronger]] and it seriously bit her in the butt later on.
** A minor one in episode 21, as her reluctance to [[spoiler:give Ryuko the second half of the Scissor Blades]] is all Satsuki needs to figure out that [[spoiler:Ryuko's brainwashing isn't perfect.]]
* NighInvulnerability: To everything besides the Scissor Blades. Not one of the Elite Four is able to so much as scratch her with their MK II uniforms' best attacks.
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: For many of the reasons listed.
-->'''Satsuki''': When ''you'' consider something charming, it never ends well.
* NonchalantDodge: She dodges and blocks attacks with almost no effort, treating them like some sort of game. She can even dodge machine gun fire from almost point blank.
* NoSell: She doesn't even flinch from being hit by grenade explosions and finds them to be a mild nuisance.
** In episode 18 the Elite Four with their upgraded uniforms attack her all at once. They literally do more damage to each other than to her.
* OhCrap: A few times.
** Her sugary façade fades when she realizes that [[spoiler:she's outmatched by a SuperMode Ryuko.]]
** And in episode 21, when Satsuki tells her that, she knows [[spoiler:she and Ragyo don't trust Ryuko.]] Also when she is [[spoiler:impaled by Ryuko, who is finally freed from Junketsu's control.]]
** In episode 22, her facade is completely destroyed after [[spoiler:Ryuko chops her arms off and destroys them.]]
* ParasolOfPrettiness[=/=]ParasolOfPain: One sturdy enough to block Sanageyama's giant kendo sword.
* PerpetualSmiler: She always shows a rather cute smile, even while doing things like dispatching Sanageyama in two hits or nonchalantly telling Ryuko that she killed her father.
* PinkMeansFeminine: She wears a pink frilly dress, and is fittingly the cutesiest character in the series by far (if only [[FauxAffablyEvil superficially]]).
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: When first introduced in episode 11, she is called the Number One Designer of [=REVOCS=], but she is never seen designing or making anything, [[spoiler: until episode 19.]]
* PsychoLesbian: Flirts heavily with both Satsuki and Ryuko in her introduction episode. Episode 20 and 21 imply she may actually be in love with Ryuko and a passing comment in 21 implies that Ragyo and her have been intimate. Not to mention the threesome.
* [[PsychopathicManchild Psychopathic Womanchild]]: She inflicts misery and pain solely for the sake of her own amusement.
* PurpleIsPowerful: As opposed to Ryuko's [[RedIsHeroic red]] Scissor Blade, Nui wields a purple blade, [[spoiler:the other half of Isshin's shears and the weapon used to kill him. Also when she literally shows her heart to Ryuko to prove that she is also a human-life fiber hybrid, it glows with a purple hue.]]
* RapunzelHair: Those pigtails have more volume than her entire body.
* RedBaron: Her title is "Grand Couturier". The title in real life signifies a designer that can create high quality, customized clothing of signature style and pattern; here, she is considered a very powerful person since [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman clothing has a lot of power]].
* RevengeByProxy: Decides to torment Ryuko because [[spoiler:her father]] outwitted and managed to injure her.
* RomanticismVersusEnlightenment: The Romanticist to Isshin's Enlightenment. Aesthetics matter greatly to her.
* SanitySlippage: Any sanity Nui might have had all but completely evaporates in Episode 22 [[spoiler:after Ryuko dismembers and absorbs her arms]]. From there on out, her cutesy facade is permanently replaced with a creepy SlasherSmile and a burning desire to horribly murder Ryuko.
* ShearMenace: She owns the other half of Ryuko's Scissor Blade.
* SinisterScythe: Her Scissor Blade's Decapitation Mode is a double-ended one.
* SlasherSmile: Flashes a permanent one after [[spoiler:Ryuko cuts off and absorbs both of her arms,]] which in turn triggers her definite VillainousBreakdown.
* SoreLoser: Though she'd never admit it, Satsuki believes Nui to be considerably pissed that Isshin tricked her into taking his Rending Scissors instead of the Kamui he was working on, which also [[EyeScream cost her an eye]].
** All but confirmed in Episode 22. [[spoiler:Her rage at the humiliation she receives from Ryuko and Satsuki, and then being bailed out by Hououmaru, is [[NightmareFuel rather impressive]] to behold.]]
* SpannerInTheWorks: Keeps throwing Satsuki's Ryuko-related plans into disarray forcing her to [[XanatosSpeedChess adjust them on the fly.]]
* StealthHiBye: She has a penchant of appearing out of nowhere, first demonstrated in episode 13, when she suddenly appears behind Ragyo after Satsuki leaves. [[spoiler: She also reveals herself to be Satsuki's helicopter pilot during episode 16, and hints that [[NightmareFuel she's been there all along.]]]]
* StrangerBehindTheMask: She's revealed to be [[spoiler:the killer of Ryuko's father]]...in the same episode she is introduced.
* SuperSpeed: Avoids every attack given by Ryuko blow for blow, even the gunfire from Tsugumu's needle guns.
* SuperStrength: The fact that she can block a fully transformed Sanageyama's sword (keep in mind that a Goku Uniform enhances its wearer's physical attributes) without so much as showing any hint of effort implies that she's stronger than she looks. She even does this ''without wearing a Goku Uniform.''
* SuperToughness: To the point where she doesn't even bother to block most attacks, as they almost never even get her hurt. So far she's only been injured one time, during a flashback well before the series proper began.
* SweetPollyOliver: Disguises herself as a male student, [[spoiler:Shinjiro Nagita, in episode 13]].
* SwordPlant: Plants her Scissor Blade in the ground as an improvised seat.
* ThemeNaming: Her given name means "to sew", and her surname means "stitch".
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Girly Girl to Ryuko's Tomboy. However, they're far from being friends; at least, Ryuko thinks so...
* {{Troll}}: If her gleeful declaration that she killed Ryuko's father to get a reaction wasn't enough, episode 13 shows her ''disguising herself as a male student'' just to break Ryuko all over again.
* UltimateBlacksmith: InAWorld where ClothesMakeTheSuperman, being a Grand Couturier amounts to one. She demonstrates her skill in manipulating life fibers by putting on a near perfect disguise and creating perfectly lifelike puppets [[ManipulativeBastard all to make Ryuko wear Senketsu so she can destroy it.]]
* UncannyValleyGirl: She can [[MediumAwareness reach through a split screen]], [[DissonantSerenity is always smiling]], and her movements are noticeably less fluid than the other characters.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: Where she keeps the other half of Ryuko's Scissor Blade.
* VillainForgotToLevelGrind: Downplayed. She is still easily as strong as the entire Elite Four ''combined'' even after their MidSeasonUpgrade, and the SuperMode that Ryuko uses to best her isn't even unlocked until the very beginning of their fight.
* VillainousBreakdown: Her sugary sweet façade has been broken several times throughout the series.
** The first was in a flashback, where [[spoiler:Isshin Matoi]] caught her off-guard with the aforementioned EyeScream, causing her to scream in pain and violently finish [[spoiler:Ryuko's father]] off in retaliation.
** The second is when she fights Ryuko in episode 18 and is shocked that Ryuko [[spoiler:has gotten strong enough to be more than a match for her.]]
** The third comes when she gets gagged by [[spoiler:Ryuko's cloth]] and subsequently gets stabbed in Episode 20. [[spoiler: This one is subverted, however, since she acts like she's in pain but then immediately smiles and says "Just kidding!".]]
** The fourth time in Episode 22, however, [[spoiler:she has her arms chopped off by Ryuko]] and the villainous breakdown sticks, her cutesy-poo facade permanently replaced with a SlasherSmile and murderous rage.
* VillainousCrush: Seems to have developed one for Ryuko after [[spoiler:learning that she was a human/Life Fiber-hybrid like her.]]
* WakeUpCallBoss: She [[CurbStompBattle easily defeats Sanageyama]] [[TheWorfEffect even after his levels taken in badassery]], and that is before she pulls out the other half of Ryuko's Scissor Blade. She even destroys Senketsu to let you know how above the [[SortingAlgorithmOfEvil sorting algorithm]] she really is.
* WalkingSpoiler: Of the same magnitude as [[BigBad Ragyo]]. Made even more [[JustForFun/{{Egregious}} egregrious]] because she appears mid-season and drops a [[WhamLine bombshell]] on her very first appearance.
* WhipItGood: In a flashback, she uses her tape measure like this to attack Isshin Matoi and retrieve the Rending Scissors.
* TheWorfEffect: Twofold actually; her being completely outperformed by [[spoiler:Ryuko who has unlocked her SuperMode]] serves merely as build-up to show just how ridiculously overpowered [[spoiler:a Junketsu-wearing Ragyo]] is.

* CoolShades: She puts on a pair of shades when facing Ragyo.
* DarkSkinnedBlond: African skin tone, lilac dreadlocks.
* TheDragon: While she appears like a mere assistant in the background, [[spoiler:she is revealed to be fully aware of Ragyo's plans, at least to the extent Satsuki is, and fully endorses the Life Fibers' takeover of the world.]]
* MeaningfulName: "Hou-ou" is the Japanese name for the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fenghuang fenghuang]], which supposedly has rainbow-colored plumage.
* NoSell: She doesn't seem to have taken any damage from the attacks she suffered from [[spoiler:a rebelling Satsuki]], one of which sent her flying to a wall.
* NervesOfSteel: Keeps a thoroughly straight face as Nui verbally lashes out at her, even [[HighPressureBlood getting sprayed in the face by a geyser of blood]] stemming from [[spoiler:where Nui's arms used to be.]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: In her haste to [[spoiler:save Nui]] she deployed a large number of COVERs which Nudist Beach easily defeated, gaining both allies and [[spoiler:Life Fibers necessary to produce a large number of Goku Uniforms.]]
* OvershadowedByAwesome: When she finally gets to fight, even though she is capable of superhuman feats, she is [[spoiler: constantly being thrown around by either the Elite Four or Satsuki wearing Junketsu.]]
* StoicSpectacles: While she's not always wearing them, they're used to great effect as Rei keeps a completely straight face even as she's sprayed by HighPressureBlood, courtesy of [[spoiler:Nui, whose arms had been cut off permanently by Ryuko.]]
* SuperSpeed: Manages to free Ragyo from her cross and take her in the middle of Satsuki's forces in the time it takes for Satsuki to swing her sword in order to stop her from rescuing Ragyo in the first place.

* YouShallNotPass: Almost word for word to the Elite Four at the end of episode 18. It helps that they were already backed into a corner by Nui's clones when she said it.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Wears thigh-high stockings and a miniskirt.

----
* EightiesHair: He has a 'do that makes [[AFlockOfSeagulls Mike Score's]] haircut look dignified.
* ArcWords: In Soichiro's first appearance, the first thing he said is, "This will be your wedding dress," to a five-year-old Satsuki while looking at Junketsu, words she keenly remembers. The significance is revealed when it's finished: [[spoiler:"But when you put it on, you will become a slave to clothing."]] These words were the spark that forever changed Satsuki from a cheerful, innocent little girl into a hardened warrior determined to [[spoiler:bring down COVERS and her mother, Ragyo.]]
* TheFaceless: We first see him in Episode 3 when he showed Junketsu to Satsuki, but didn't see his full face until Episode 18.
* FakingTheDead: Satsuki thought he died after Kuroido targeted and destroyed his car, but he survived by covering himself with Life Fibers. Some time after he escaped, [[spoiler:he had surgery to drastically alter his appearance to become Isshin Matoi.]]
* HeelRealization[=/=]HeelFaceTurn: Upon realising that Ragyo is a cold, heartless shrew who [[spoiler:essentially used their children for experimentation and didn't give a damn when their youngest daughter (seemingly) died as a result of said experimentation,]] he turns against her full force and aims to [[spoiler:take her and the Life Fibers down.]] To this effect, he faked his death and [[spoiler:became Isshin Matoi.]]
* MadScientist: Doesn't exactly look the part, but really, [[spoiler:what kind of parent cuts open his newborn daughter, stuffs her full of [[StarfishAlien Life Fibers]] and then performs experiments on her?]]
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: His EightiesHair gives him a more "old-school anime" look than the other characters. [[spoiler:This can be seen as a clue that he and another character with an old-fashioned character design, Isshin Matoi, are one and the same.]]
* PosthumousCharacter: Satsuki's father died quite sometime before the series began. It's also revealed [[spoiler:that ''he'' is actually Isshin Matoi, making Satsuki and Ryuko sisters.]]

* BlackEyesOfEvil: Subverted, as even though Soroi's eyes are perpetually black, he is easily one of the kindest and nicest characters in the cast.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: At one point carries around eight to ten people on his back with very little difficulty.
* TheJeeves: Fits this trope to a tee: he's always polite and unquestioning, and always ready to pour his master a spot of tea.
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: He's the only one of Satsuki's servants who doesn't object to her stealing and wearing Junketsu against her mother's position. [[spoiler: He even participates in Satsuki's rebellion against her mother.]]

Mako's poor, eccentric yet happy family who live contentedly in the slums of Honnou Town. They become Ryuko's surrogate family after she transfers to the academy.
----
* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: They become quite vain and haughty in episode 7 once Mako books them a whole mansion.
* ArtShift: In episode 17, when confronting Gamagori about Ryuko's and Mako's whereabouts, they take on a more dramatic and realistic art style.
* ChivalrousPervert: Every single member of the family is DistractedByTheSexy at one point or another and the boys try to peep on Ryuko often, but none of them actually take it too far.
** When Nagita is alone with Mako and Ryuko in their house, the rest of the family are seen spying on them, almost as if they expect something to happen.
* {{Foil}}: It becomes increasingly clear that they are the family Ryuko wanted or could have had, compared to her father [[spoiler:and mother]].
* ICallItVera: What the Mankanshoku family thinks of Ryuko's relationship with Senketsu, as they can only see her talking to an inanimate school uniform. Mako tells her family to understand, as she thinks Ryuko is a very lonely girl. Although they do eventually figure out that Senketsu is indeed sentient, even if they can't hear what he's saying.
* JerkassBall: In episode 7, Mako's promotion to One-Star allows them to live like kings, but it also [[AcquiredSituationalNarcissism turns them into pompous socialites who would rather have Mako kill Ryuko if it means keeping their new lifestyle.

* LikeASonToMe: The family considers Ryuko to be one of their own, even if they find her habit of talking to her clothes a bit disconcerting.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: After Mako chews them out for simply watching her slowly pummel her best friend to death, the whole family strips to their underwear and grovels before Ryuko in apology.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: They're noticeably more cartoony-looking than the other, more roughly-drawn characters.
* OffscreenTeleportation: In a CallBack to No-Late Day, the whole family does this in Episode 18.
* QuirkyHousehold: They love seeing Ryuko naked and consider a plateful of croquets made from unidentifiable junk to be the finest food in Japan, yet they're the most loving family anyone can hope for.
* RagsToRiches: In episode 7, after Mako becomes president of the new Fight Club, their social standing increases ''dramatically'', moving from the slums to their own condo, and eventually a mansion. [[EasyComeEasyGo This plays out about as well as one would expect.]]
* ShooOutTheClowns: Averted. If they're around, there will be wacky hijinks, however minor. Those situations that are completely serious don't feature them to begin with.
* ThemeNaming: "Mankanshoku" means "all dressed up".
* ThickerThanWater: Their reaction to Mako beating the crap out of Ryuko in episode 7 is to cheer for their daughter, since they're in no mood to lose their newfound wealth should Mako lose. Once Mako comes to her senses, she's understandably horrified by their behavior [[WhatTheHellHero and makes sure they feel the same way]].
* TookALevelInBadass: When they confront Gamagoori regarding the details of the Grand Festival and if Ryuko and Mako are okay.
* WhatTheHellHero: Mako calls them all out for cheering for her during her fight to the death against Ryuko instead of stopping her from trying to kill her best friend.

->Voiced by: KenyuuHoriuchi

Mako's father. He is the town's unlicensed doctor who's killed more patients than he's actually saved them.
----
* AmusingInjuries: Falls victim to this quite often as a result of his incessant peeping.
* BackAlleyDoctor: He even has a glowing neon sign on his house labelling him as such.
** Although it would seem he has a OneHourWorkWeek, as we never see him doing any actual doctoring.
*** FridgeHorror sets in when you remember that he freely admits that his patients die on his watch more often than not, so people are probably avoiding him except as a last resort.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: When he stands up to Gamagoori in the episode for the sports festival accomodation.
* {{Gonk}}: He's much more blobbish than the other, more reasonably proportioned characters.

* BareYourMidriff: Her [[spoiler:Nudist Beach]] nurse's uniform, hot damn!
* BrutalHonesty: Doesn't shy away from admitting what incompetent idiots her husband and son are.
* CordonBleughChef: She will cook ''anything'' as long as it's not poisonous. Interestingly for this trope, the food always both looks and tastes delicious; you just don't want to know what's in it.
* CovertPervert: Unlike Ryuko, she's more than a little curious about what Aikuro is packing.
* EatingTheEyeCandy: She can't resist [[http://i.imgur.com/N5hekwM.gif checking Aikuro out]] when he is close, proving she's just like the rest of the family.
* GirlyRun: Exagerrated. She runs with her hands balled into fists under her chin and her elbows glued to her sides.

* AlliterativeName: Same as his sister, probably deliberate.
* BoisterousWeakling: How he comes off in the first episode, but quickly learns his place.
* BrattyHalfPint: Acts real tough when he and his boys decide to [[BullyingADragon take on Ryuko]].
* TheChewToy: His main purpose in the story seems to be getting beaten up whenever he does something stupid.
* DirtyKid: He knows how sexy Ryuko looks when wearing Senketsu, and he isn't afraid to point it out. And in episode 19, in a brief scene, he's noticeably blushing and drooling over the person who saved his life: [[spoiler:Nonon in [[{{Stripperiffic}} Nudist Beach gear]], that is.]]
* GogglesDoNothing: Wears a pair of shades on his forehead.
* InTheBlood: He makes the same crossed-arms gesture as his sister while temporarily wealthy in episode 7.

->"''Winning with friendship means winning at life!''"

->Voiced by: Creator/AyaSuzaki

A second year No-Star student at Honnouji Academy who becomes Ryuko's best (and only) friend as soon as the two meet. She is a complete and utter airhead whose odd and overly-energetic antics never cease to baffle everyone around her. Nevertheless, she has a good heart and provides Ryuko with invaluable moral support.
----
* ActionSurvivor: She acts like she'd be better suited for a light-hearted slice-of-life comedy than a testosterone-packed action drama.
* AlliterativeName: '''Ma'''ko '''Ma'''nkanshoku. Perfect for a quirky best friend.
* AmbiguouslyGay: She can get awfully clingy around her "best friend", at one point ranting about how perfect Ryuko's breasts are and how she wants to see them on display.
* AmbitionIsEvil: When Mako becomes the Fight Club President and moves her family up the social ladder, she becomes so determined to keep her family's lives comfortable that she fights Ryuko so she can become a Three-Star student.
* AmusingInjuries: She gets hit in the face with a flurry of tennis balls until it's literally ''covered'' in bumps.
* AsleepInClass: To the point of RunningGag; not even ten seconds into class, and she starts snoring.
* {{Badass}}: No, seriously. The fact she can live in a CrapsackWorld where being late for school is punishable by death, yet still come to school with a smile, makes this girl ''hardcore''.
** BadassNormal: She's only a No-Star student, yet she can face ''Satsuki herself'' without an ounce of fear. She even successfully snaps Ryuko out of her HeroicRROD despite facing the berserk Ryuko, Junketsu Satsuki and Nui Harime.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: Becomes one briefly in episode 7 when she gets promoted to a Two-Star student. [[spoiler:She later gets the uniform back in episode 22]].
* BeatTheCurseOutOfHim: In episode 12, when Ryuko merges with Senketsu into a rampaging monster, Mako gives her a good solid smack to her head that returns her body to normal... [[AngerBornOfWorry then she]] [[FunnyMoments smacks her]] [[HeartwarmingMoments some more]].
** Does so again in [[spoiler:episode 21 by donning Senketsu and entering Ryuko's mind somehow. She proceeds to help Ryuko escape being BrainwashedAndCrazy.]]
* BewareTheSillyOnes: She may be sweet and silly, but as episode 7 shows, she can be quite ruthless when someone gets in the way of something she wants, even if that someone is her best friend.
* BigEater: She eats even while class is still going, and considers being deployed to Osaka a chance to sample their local delicacies.
* BookDumb: Mikisugi is amazed she managed to get to high school. It's implied that she can't even read kanji.
* BrilliantButLazy: She doesn't normally show this, but when she wants something, she ''will'' pull out all the stops just to get it. Noted examples are when she catches [[AbnormalAmmo weaponized paper currency]] [[BulletCatch with her bare hands]] because she wanted to eat all the good Osakan food and her successful tenure as the Fight Club president to give her family a better life.
* BulletCatch: During episode 14, Mako catches rapid-fire [[AbnormalAmmo weaponized paper currency]] without a Goku Uniform, because she ''really'' wants that money.
* ButtMonkey: Poor Mako has it hard when it comes to the Student Council.
** IronButtMonkey: The sheer amount of punishment she endures would be nightmarish if it weren't so cartoonish.
* CallingTheOldManOut: In episode 7, Mako calls her family ([[MyGodWhatHaveIDone herself included]]) "the worst" for cheering her on in her fight to the death with Ryuko instead of trying to stop her.
* ChewbaccaDefense: Mako is the reigning queen of stunning opponents into silence through InsaneTrollLogic, even members of the Elite Four.
* ChivalrousPervert: With Ryuko, though not to the extent of the male members of her family.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: She sings using a banana peel as a microphone, just to name one of the many, ''many'' odd things she does.
* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: On her own, one would never suspect she attends a school that forces her to live in a slum and punishes misbehavior with death.
* CoolDownHug: Gives one to the mutated, rampaging Ryuko/Senketsu monster in episode 12, cooling her down. Literally; [[VisualPun her body is piping hot, and hugging her burns Mako's skin.]]
* CorruptTheCutie: Her promotion as Fight Club President causes her to become blinded by greed, though she doesn't realize it as she does it to provide for her family.
* CovertPervert: When seeing Ryuko's {{Stripperific}} outfit, she can't help but stare despite her (poor) attempts at averting her eyes.
** Her reaction to learning that Ryuko's father founded Nudist Beach? Imagining said founder playing around with naked girls on a beach.
* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: In episode 3, after Ryuko is beaten by Satsuki and has a [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech "Reason You Suck" Speech]] delivered to her, Mako suggests that Ryuko strip down and prove that she's sexier than Satsuki. This gives Ryuko the idea and resolve to think of wearing Senketsu as a second skin instead of just a really embarrassingly skimpy outfit, which gives her a power boost.
* DamselInDistress: She often winds up in a bind with the Student Council one way or another, though Ryuko's always there to help her out.
* DarkActionGirl: Briefly becomes one in episode 7 once she gets a Two-Star Goku Uniform.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: "People die when they're killed by blood loss!"
* FriendlessBackground: Mako says that before Ryuko transferred to Honnouji, the only friends she had were [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} the ones in her head]].
* FunPersonified: Long story short, this girl is a walking CrowningMomentOfFunny. She always tries to lighten the mood and every time she opens her mouth, you can be sure that she will say something crazy, or funny, or (most often) both sooner than later.
* GagBoobs: The bustiest of the girls, hardly ever wears a bra, and tends to jump around and get turned upside-down a lot.
* GeniusDitz: She's geographically challenged (she thinks the three major cities of Japan's Kansai region are the three major islands around Japan) and is implied to be illiterate (she skips all the kanji while reading a newspaper headline), yet she can present [[ChewbaccaDefense outlandish defenses]] like no one's business.
* GenkiGirl: Whenever she's not [[{{Sleepyhead}} sleeping]].
* HamToHamCombat: She challenges Gamagoori to a cheering competition for their respective sides during the King of the Hill Final Battle.
* HeelRealization: During her stint as the Fight Club President in episode 7, Mako finds that she and her family seem much happier having their own apartment outside the slums, and fights Ryuko after Satsuki promises her a Three-Star uniform if she wins. It's only until Ryuko stops putting up a fight that Mako sees just how corrupted with greed she and her family have become.
* HeroicWillpower: Rather than surrender to the power of her Two-Star Goku Uniform and kill Ryuko so she can continue to live wealthily in episode 7, Mako remains in enough control to hold back and overcome her own desires.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Ryuko. Although in her case, the "heterosexual" part is... [[AmbiguouslyGay ambiguous]] to say the least.
* HitMeDammit: Boldly stands in front of a Takarada trooper and orders him to shoot her with [[AbnormalAmmo money]]. [[BulletCatch She catches every single bill]] [[ScrewTheWarWerePartying then heads off to buy]] [[BigEater every single Osakan food she can see.]]
* InelegantBlubbering: Tears slide down her face in huge globs and form puddles at her feet when she cries.
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: She doesn't have any problem being in the buff and is perfectly oblivious to the reactions of others.
* InsigniaRipOffRitual: After a stint as a Two-Star student in episode 7, she decides that her friendship with Ryuko is more important than her social standing and rips off her uniform for Ryuko to destroy.
* InTheBlood: The more is shown about Mankanshoku family the more it's obvious that she isn't the only {{Cloudcuckoolander}} in the family, even the dog is crazy.
* ItMakesSenseInContext: Some of the stuff she says actually makes sense. For example, she claims that Ryuko won a tennis match because she saved her from being executed by the Tennis Club, which was Ryuko's main concern.
* {{Leitmotif}}: The distinctive "Hallelujah" chorus from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messiah_(Handel) Handel's Messiah]] can be heard whenever she starts her... [[SimpleMindedWisdom unusually]] [[ChewbaccaDefense inspirational speeches]].
** There is also her more traditional theme, "Light Your Heart Up", which is about [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship how much she enjoys being Ryuko's friend]].
* MotorMouth: She is known to give long-winded rants almost OncePerEpisode.
* MsExposition: She helps get Ryuko up to speed on the happenings at Honnouji Academy.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Her reaction when she nearly kills Ryuko just so she can be promoted to a Three-Star student.
* NaiveEverygirl: Her singular ''codifying'' character trait in the entire series. Whether it's interrupting a heated battle to deliver a [[MidBattleTeaBreak necessary speech about the importance of cross dressing]] or being the only person able to calm down a berserk Ryuko, Mako's naivety combined with her unflagging optimism is the show's continuing source of humor, as well as heart.
* NiceGirl: She might be [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} completely bananas]], but she's also sweet, caring and loyal to her friends.
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: She sings [[LyricalDissonance a cheerful road song about going on a drive to Hell]].
* NotHerself: Ryuko notes how Mako becomes less and less like her usual chipper self after becoming the Fight Club president. First she becomes increasingly formal and smug, and when she gets a Two-Star uniform, she is noticeably more brutal and doesn't even crack a smile.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Towards Ryuko, frequently glomping and groping her. She also has no problems treating Gamgoori like a climbing frame.
* OddNameOut: Her name is written with kana, instead of kanji like the majority of the cast.
* OffscreenTeleportation: On No-Late Day she manages to catch Gamagoori completely off-guard by popping up out of nowhere on the podium next to where he's standing. She does it again on Ryuko, [[spoiler:in her MentalWorld no less!]]
* OnlyFriend: She's the only student in the entire school who talks to Ryuko without trying to kill her or get under her skin.
* ThePollyanna: She hardly ever seems aware she's in a school run by a fascist student body.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Her friendship with Ryuko is ultimately what saves [[spoiler:the latter from staying brainwashed by Junketsu.]]
* PluckyComicRelief: Often she'll interrupt very dramatic moments to lighten the atmosphere and (humorously) encourage Ryuko.
* PluckyGirl: She always comes out of any situation with a smile on her face, ''no matter what''. She's pushed to her limits when sharing a stand with the demoted Elite Four while cheering Ryuko on during the King of the Hill Final Battle, resorting in her cheering for ''herself'' so she won't crack under the pressure.
* RapidFireFisticuffs: How she [[BulletCatch snatches]] [[AbnormalAmmo all the paper bills shot at her]], complete with "ATATATATATA!!!"
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: With Ryuko. Although on her part, the attraction [[{{Nosebleed}} might not be entirely platonic]].
* SayMyName: There have been two instances wherein Ryuko's life has been in danger and Mako resorts to yelling her name [[OverlyLongGag over and over and over]].
* ScrewTheWarWerePartying: Satsuki and her lackeys are busy conquering Osaka (and Kobe and Kyoto) and things are going up in flames. Ryuko is going on a desperate trip to recover Senketsu's missing pieces. Aikuro has dropped his teacher guise and returned to being a Nudist Beach operative. And Mako? [[WhileRomeBurns She's on a culinary trip through the aforementioned burning Osaka]].
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: When held upside-down, she complains that she forgot to bring her sexy panties, and that's just the ''first episode''. For someone who wears normal clothes, she also tends to show off a lot of {{Underboobs}}.
* SimpleMindedWisdom: Her ramblings can be profound when viewed at the right angle.
-->'''Mako''': My life's traffic lights are always yellow!\\
'''Gamagoori''': "In life, proceed in caution," eh?
* SkewedPriorities: She has several priorities when caught in a death trap, and her life is never one of them.
** Episode 1: She's less concerned about being fried alive in boiling oil and more concerned about how the oil will [[WetSariScene make her clothes see-through]], and that she wasn't wearing her sexy panties that day.
** Episode 5: She's afraid that if the Biology Club slices her belly open, it would ruin the lunch she stashed in her clothes.
** Episode 12: She considers the burns she suffers from giving a CoolDownHug to Ryuko a free tan.
** Episode 16: When Mikisugi asks her if she has the resolve to join them in battle she says that she doesn't... [[ComicallyMissingThePoint have the resolve to get naked]], but will follow them because she is Ryuko's friend.
* {{Sleepyhead}}: Shockingly enough for a GenkiGirl such as herself, she can fall asleep at the drop of a hat, even when cheering for Ryuko in the middle of a fight.
* StrikeMeDown: Tells [[spoiler:a brainwashed Ryuko inside her MentalWorld]] to kill her if the latter insists on [[spoiler:staying cooped up in her FakeMemories, which Ryuko does, but ultimately snaps out of her funk, with Mako relatively unharmed.]]
* TemporarilyAVillain: In episode 7, she gets promoted to a Two-Star Club President and fights Ryuko to become the school's fifth Three-Star student and maintain her family's new-found wealth and social status, thinking they'd be much happier than when they were poor. However, she resigns once she realizes that she'll kill her best friend if she keeps things up.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Girly Girl to Ryuko's Tomboy.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: Where she keeps her lunchbox, though considering its size, it's more like {{hammerspace}}.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: She accepts the job as Fight Club President to improve her standing in the school, and her family's social standing with it, no matter what. So when Ryuko's resignation threatens to send her family back to the slums, and since the reward for any club president to beat her is a Three-Star uniform, the most logical conclusion to her is to fall out with her friend.
* WhileRomeBurns: She actually goes on a sightseeing tour of Osaka as the city goes up in flames during Satsuki's invasion.
* WillfullyWeak: She ''greatly'' holds back while fighting Ryuko in a Two-Star Goku Uniform in episode 7, as she could easily punch a crater in the ground with her uniform's powers, but subconsciously fears killing Ryuko if she were to go all out.
** FightingFromTheInside: Ryuko pretty much names this trope word-for-word after said fight. [[DownplayedTrope It's more like a case of]] ConflictingLoyalty than direct MindControl, though. Note that HeroicWillpower is still in full effect.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: She punishes her younger brother by putting him through a number of wrestling holds.

->"''Fear is freedom! Subjugation is liberation! Contradiction is truth! These are the truths of this world! Surrender to these truths, you pigs in human clothing!''"

->Voiced by: Creator/RyokaYuzuki

The StudentCouncilPresident of Honnouji Academy, and Ryuko's [[TheRival arch rival]]. Her goal: total WorldDomination through the superpower-endowing Goku Uniforms. Her sword, Bakuzan, is enough to withstand even the awe-inspiring might of Ryuko's Kamui, Senketsu. Not one to let herself get outdone by anyone, however, she ends up donning her own Kamui, Junketsu,[[note]]"Purity"[[/note]] to counter Ryuko's.
----
* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Her sword is keener than the Scissor Blades and it's able to easily cut Senketsu.
* AbusiveParents: The first time we see her and her mother together in person on screen, Ragyo fondles her body with disturbing level of intimacy for some reason. She also gets even more handsy in episode 16, when she bathes Satsuki in herbs to to cleanse her chakra gates and increase her affinity for her Kamui. Which may sound relatively innocuous, if your mind isn't dirty enough, but bear in mind-Satsuki was ''naked'', making rather...[[{{Squick}} suggestive]] [[TheImmodestOrgasm noises]], and the Root Chakra gate is located in the groin.
* AintTooProudToBeg: By Episode 22, she becomes humble enough to ask [[spoiler:Ryuko to join forces with her and defeat Ragyo.]]
* AntiVillain: A combination of types [[NobleDemon I]] and [[WellIntentionedExtremist III]]. She's a complete and utter despot with [[TheSocialDarwinist disdain for the weak]], but only because she believes the world to be in complete disarray unless she's in control. She also shows respect and even [[PetTheDog kindness]] to those who prove their strength and resolve. So it shouldn't come as much of a surprise when she later turns out to be an...
** AntiHero: Of the GoodIsNotNice and PragmaticHero variety, everything she has done is to make her army stronger and complete the façade of allegiance, in order to defeat [[spoiler: her mother and free the world from the Life Fibers.]]
* ArchEnemy: Out of everyone in the school, Satsuki is at the very top of Ryuko's hit list since she believes she knows what happened to her father, at least before the actual culprit entered the picture. Afterwards, the antagonism dies down somewhat between them and Satsuki straddles the line between this and being TheRival. [[spoiler:Later on she becomes an ally and teams up with Ryuko in order to defeat their mother Ragyo.]]
* {{Badass}}: Able to go toe to toe with Ryuko, and is a credible enough threat to make Nui back down when necessary.
** BadassBack: One of the few female characters who can successfully pull this off [[CurbStompBattle very well]].
** BadassInCharge: The absolute ruler of Honnouji Academy.
** BadassNormal: Is able to put Ryuko (wearing Senketsu) in a pinch without a Goku Uniform or Kamui.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: Bakuzan, which can cut Life Fibers, is still a threat to Senketsu when combined with Satsuki's swordsmanship.
** BadassInDistress: Episode 19 has her [[spoiler:captured by Ragyo, but Satsuki quickly escapes.]]
** BroughtDownToBadass: [[spoiler: Thanks to some toe blades, she is still able to one shot Covers even while completely naked. She is also able to fight evenly with Nui without a Kamui]]
** BadassLongcoat: Briefly dons one in episode 22.
* BigOlEyebrows: Her eyebrows are quite prominent for a girl.
* BoringButPractical: In a fight which involved sentient alien school uniforms, shadow clones, optical camouflage, mini-mecha etc. she created an opening she needed to [[spoiler:decapitate Ragyo]] by blinding them with her sword's reflection, one of the oldest sword tricks in the book.
* BreakTheHaughty: Episode 18 has not been kind to her. Neither has any episode after that.
* CallingYourAttacks: How she's able to utilize [[spoiler: Senketsu's]] transformation forms during episode 21. She even invents one for him on the spot. This is because [[spoiler: she cannot communicate with Senketsu the way Ryuko can, thus has to call out her desired transformation. Ryuko points out that this method has a slight timing lag, thus is easier to stop.]]
* CastingGag: Physically she bears a striking resemblance to Arashi from ''Manga/{{X1999}}'', one of Ryoka Yuzuki's famous earlier roles.
* CharacterDevelopment: Initially was an arrogant SocialDarwinist who had no problems using people as pawns for her plans, and while her goals were later revealed to be noble, she acknowledges that treating people that way made her no different from her mother and [[spoiler: humbly asks Ryuko for her help in defeating Ragyo.]] Afterwards, she mellows out significantly sporting a far more relaxed expression and even smiles and laughs a lot more.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: There is no indication that there is [[BadassNormal anything abnormal]] about her fighting prowess and yet she can crush steel armour with mere strikes of her sheathed sword.
* ChildhoodFriends: She's been friends with Jakuzure since before kindergarten.
* CleavageWindow: While wearing Junketsu.
* CombatStilettos: Multiple shots are dedicated to her striking her high heels on the ground whenever she makes a DynamicEntry. She's even delivers a few ultra-powered kicks during her fights with Ryuko.
* ContraltoOfDanger: Satsuki along with Ragyo have noticeably prominent deep voices compared to the rest of the women in the cast, especially when it comes to exercising their authority over others, although they have their share of action as well.
* CoolBigSis: It takes 22 episodes but [[spoiler:Ryuko eventually considers Satsuki this, though she struggles to actually call her so.]]
* CoolSword: Secret Sword Bakuzan, a katana so sharp that it can cut Kamui and send people flying with the sheer RazorWind it emits when swung.
** BlackSwordsAreBetter: Bakuzan has a very dark finish, seen during the rare times she's drawn and wreaked havoc with it. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, it's not quite good enough; Ragyo is able to shatter it.]]
** KatanasAreJustBetter: Her sword can cause [[RazorWind massive damage]] even if blocked, and can slice a Kamui ''without'' any Goku Uniform power boost. Subverted later on in Episode 18 however, as it is completely ineffective in killing [[spoiler: her mother, despite the fact that Satsuki first impaled her, and then cut her head off. To add to this, Ragyo easily breaks the blade with nothing but her ''fists''.]]
** WreckedWeapon: [[spoiler:Bakuzan literally snaps in half when Ragyo [[BareHandedBladeBlock blocks it with her fist.]] Bakuzan's pieces were later remade into a dagger and a sword named Gako and Kouryu respectively.]]
** DualWield: [[spoiler:By Episode 20, she managed to escape confinement on her own. Sanageyama and Nonon presented Gako and Kouryu for her to use.]]
* CrazyPrepared: Satsuki is not one to underestimate, despite it looking like everything she planned all led to episode 18. [[spoiler: Episode 19 shows that she did have a few plans in case she lost, such as rigging the stadium to blow, or got captured, where she reveals some her toenails have been replaced with the same metal the Bakuzan is made of.]]
* CurbstompBattle: Casually delivers one to Ryuko during their first fight to show just how more experienced she is with her Kamui. During [[WhamEpisode Episode 18]], [[spoiler:Ragyo inflicts a brutal one on her, reducing Satsuki to a bloody, broken husk of her former self.]] And in Episode 21, [[spoiler: she is again on the receiving end, this time against a Junketsu-wearing Ryuko, despite wearing Senketsu. But she has a plan.]]
* DaddysGirl: PlayedForDrama. [[spoiler:After his death, she takes up his plans in order to fight her mother and destroy the COVERS.]]
* DarkActionGirl: Even her most martially skilled subordinates have an infallible respect for her fighting prowess.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: This is how she recruited Gamagoori and Sanageyama, with Inumuta being a borderline case.
* DefectorFromDecadence: Ever since she was 5 years old she has been plotting [[spoiler: to destroy her mother Ragyo, the true BigBad, and eliminate the Life Fibers.]]
* DefrostingIceQueen
* {{Determinator}}: She holds strength of will and resolve in the highest of regards, and even though Junketsu puts an enormous strain on her and tries to devour her, she never lets it show in front of Ryuko or even her Elite Four. Even after [[spoiler:her lifelong planned revolution failed and she had been imprisoned on chains for an entire month, she ''still'' hasn't given up.]]
* {{Deuteragonist}}: Considering a major plot point of the series is her conflict with Ryuko, this is hardly surprising. She arguably becomes more of the protagonist in the second half of the series when her motivations are revealed, having arguably [[SpotlightStealingSquad more focus than Ryuko herself.]]
* DragonInChief: Even with [[BigBad her mother]] backing her as Honnouji Academy's board chairwoman, Satsuki acts largely independently as the main antagonist, sending her subordinates after Ryuko and using her to further her plans for WorldDomination.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: Her true motivations finally come out in episode 18. [[spoiler:Since she was 5, Satsuki's only goal had been to destroy Life Fibers and kill Ragyo.]]
* DualWielding: Starting in Episode 21, she fights using [[spoiler:Gako and Kouryu, the two blades that were made from Bakuzan's remains.]]
* EnfantTerrible: Even in kindergarden, she was known for making profound EvilOverlord speeches.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Read the above quote. She says this while addressing the entire student body atop an ''impossibly'' massive school building.
* EvilOverlord: Has the tone of this, as she plots to take over the world. [[spoiler: Revealed to be a ruse to trick the true BigBad EvilOverlord into thinking she was on their side]]
* FemmeFatalons: Sharpens her toenails into claws so she can [[spoiler:escape after being captured by her mother.]]
* FirstNameBasis: Her childhood friendship with Nonon is referenced when Satsuki uses her first name when they're alone.
** She also uses this on her mother in Episode 18, a sign of gross disrespect in Japan, which is exactly what Satsuki meant it to be.
** By episode 22, she finally calls [[spoiler: Ryuko solely by her first name, indicating her recognition of Ryuko as her little sister]].
* FullFrontalAssault: During Episode 20, she [[spoiler:escapes from her prison with just her toenails as weapons]] and cuts down a few [[spoiler:COVERS {{Mook}}s]] while naked.
* FullNameBasis: Like Ryuko does with her, Satsuki addresses Ryuko by her full name.
** LastNameBasis: Likewise, she calls her subordinates by their last names. [[VillainousFriendship The one exemption is Jakuzure]] [[HeartwarmingMoments/AnimeAndManga when they share a tender moment]].
* GodivaHair: And not just her breasts, it's long enough to cover her butt and even crotch at one point.
* GoingCommando: As a member of [[spoiler:Nudist Beach]]. She was also naked during [[spoiler:her escape from the school]].
* GoodAllAlong: In episode 17, [[spoiler: she and all of Honnouji are actually good guys trying to stop the global take over and subjection of man by Life Fibers.]]
** GoodIsNotNice: Shows no mercy in attaining her goal [[spoiler: to kill Ragyo and free mankind from Life Fibers.]]
* HairDecorations: Has small wings in her hair when Junketsu is activated.
* HazyFeelTurn: Satsuki always had her own agenda since the very beginning of the plot, it just took her seventeen episodes to get the perfect shot at [[spoiler: Ragyo's]] back.
* TheHeavy: She may not have as much power as [[BigBad her mother]] and [[spoiler:she is neither evil nor responsible for Isshin Matoi's murder]], but she's still the most prominent antagonist in the series.
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler: Even if her goals were noble, she apologizes to Ryuko when she realizes that treating people like pawns and manipulating Ryuko makes her no different than Ragyo.]]
* HeroicWillpower: Invoked by her donning Junketsu. If episode 20 is any indication, [[spoiler:Junketsu has been trying to MindRape her every time she activated it, or even every time she wore it.]] Despite that she forced Junketsu to give her power and was able to fight Ryuko on equal terms.
* HimeCut: Appropriate for someone of such regal power.
* HitlerCam: Most if not all shots of her are angled upwards. Used to great effect in as she [[YourSizeMayVary towers]] over Ryuko in episode 2 when she goes to strike her.
* HolyBacklight: Every time Satsuki steps on top of the school, her mere existence can shoot out beams of light rays fiercer than the sun, and blinds all who are below her into submission. Her mother apparently [[InTheBlood can do the same]], but with a rainbow spectrum.
* HotBlooded: When the situation calls for it, she proves that she can scream with the best of them.
* {{Hypocrite}}: In middle school, she disparages two bullies who rely on their parents' positions and connections for their power. Gamagoori points out that she's doing exactly the same thing; she counters that unlike them, she truly ''owns'' her parents' power.
** It turns out that [[spoiler: she's only doing this so that she can eventually rebel against her mother]], making this something of a subversion.
** She spends a good three-quarters of the series lambasting Ryuko for having something as small-minded and self-centered as a revenge quest fueling her one-man war against her. Then she reveals to Ragyo that [[spoiler:she originally started her rebellion plans when her father revealed what was done to her little sister and requested her to carry on his quest to stop Ragyo just before he was chased off by her]]. When Ragyo points out how petty that motivation is, Satsuki without a modicum of irony or self-awareness asserts that great causes and champions are fueled by personal desires. Of course, her original statement was made in public before witnesses, and she had a cover to maintain at the time, so whether she really believed it is suspect at best.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Satsuki feels that her actions as an EvilOverlord were completely necessary to get her to a point where she could [[spoiler: kill her mother Ragyo]]. This is also her reasoning for not holding back when fighting [[spoiler:her fellow students brainwashed to serve Ragyo]] in episode 18.
* IHaveTheHighGround: Specifically so she can look down on others from a more befitting height.
* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: [[spoiler: Against Ryuko in Episode 21. Satsuki puts her body through excessive strain to wear Senketsu to let him fight, since they both want to bring her back to her senses.]]
* {{Kiai}}: A single shout of hers is enough to blow away 500 men.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "鬼龍G@キLL",[[note]]''Kiryu ga Kill''[[/note]] an overbearing, militaristic piece.
* LightIsNotGood: Wears a bright white uniform. Runs several schools across the country like a fascist regime.
** PureIsNotGood: Her Kamui's name is Junketsu, which means "purity". Ryuko [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this:
--->'''Ryuko''': Is there anything about you that's pure?
** DarkIsNotEvil: [[spoiler: She temporarily wears Senketsu in Episode 21 in order to stop a brainwashed Ryuko.]]
* LivingBattery: [[spoiler: Ragyo plans on having Satsuki be the power source for an ultimate Kamui.]]
* LongGame: She's been building her power at Honnouji Academy for years, and [[spoiler:has waited all this time to unleash the army she's built against her mother. Ragyo and the COVERS dismantle it within minutes.]]
* MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter: Considering how her parents [[spoiler:experimented on her and her little sister]] she very much qualifies.
* ManipulativeBitch: She takes full advantage of Ryuko's arrival at her academy, using her battles with the Student Council to make the final adjustments to their Goku Uniforms to stage a full invasion of Japan, while also purging the system of any dissenters for good measure.
* MightyGlacier: Satsuki isn't exactly slow, but her strength is mostly centered on her monstrous physical strength, and her tough defenses, something Ryuko comments on during their match at Osaka.
* [[DaddysLittleVillain Mommy's Little Villain]]: Extremely ambitious and ruthless, she also inherited her charisma and love for speeches from her mother. Subverted actually because [[spoiler:it's been all a ruse to fool Ragyo so Satsuki could kill her and save humanity from Life Fibers]].
* MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours: She may be miffed that Ryuko got to wear a Kamui before her, but she boasts being the first one to master its power.
* NamedWeapons: Bakuzan, which can mean [[{{Foreshadowing}} "to cut one's ties"]].
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: "Kiryuin" contains the characters for "demon", "dragon", and "ex-empress".
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Satsuki destroys [[spoiler:Nudist Beach and Osaka on the pretext that any group which cannot defeat her Life Fiber-enhanced army would be useless against Ragyo and COVERS.]] As it turns out in Episode 18, her much-vaunted One-Stars [[spoiler:are defeated without firing a shot, in less than a minute. The crippled remnants of Nudist Beach, meanwhile, remain combat-effective a whole month later.]] Evidently someone didn't think her plan all the way through.
* NobleDemon: Even though she views weaklings as the lowest form of scum that need to be ruled by the strong (such as herself), she is shown to admire and respect people with ambition (such as Inumuta and Jakuzure) and determination (such as Gamagoori and Sanageyama) and rewards them as she sees fit. She even goes as far as giving second chances, like allowing Sanageyama to have a rematch with Ryuko [[EyeScream after he sews his eyes shut]] or [[DrivenToSuicide stopping Gamagoori from committing seppuku after he loses to Ryuko]]. In fact, she goes out of her way to protect Mako from Nui while the former attempts a CooldownHug on a rampaging Ryuko, and compliments her when she succeeds.
** Later, after [[spoiler: Senketsu is destroyed by Nui]], Satsuki has the courtesy of not only sparing Ryuko when she's practically at her whim, but after collecting most of [[spoiler: Senketsu's remains]], Satsuki allows Ryuko to keep a single piece despite presumably knowing the risks of an empowered Ryuko once again, and the fact that she could simply take it as well for the sake of removing both a threat and amplifying her regime's power.
* NotSoDifferent: For all Satsuki's speeches about her ambitions, when you discover her base motivation, it is really no different than Ryuko's. [[spoiler:She wants revenge for her father's death. Bonus points for it being the same person.]]
* TheOjou: Is treated as royalty by the student body as well as the faculty.
* OneWomanArmy: She can blow away dozens if not hundreds of opponents with her [[KiAttacks willpower]] alone. And that's ''without'' Junketsu's power.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness
** It really shows just how much strain Junketsu puts on Satsuki in episode 16. Satsuki who up until this point was always confident, grim-faced and absolutely unwavering looks like a lost, hurt little girl for a moment after taking Junketsu off.
** Satsuki's demeanor as she begins her [[spoiler:rebellion against Ragyo]] is also notable. While her baseline emotional state is rather intense, she is still extremely composed and would at most show contempt for an opponent. The sheer depth of rage and hatred she shows [[spoiler:Ragyo]] is incredible.
** Shows probably her greatest loss of composure verging on genuine fear when [[spoiler: Senketsu is sheared apart by Ryuko.]]
* OrcusOnHisThrone: {{Subverted}}; she steps down from her perch to personally fight Ryuko as soon as episode 2, even holding a proper match the very next episode. After that, however, she retires to her throne and sics the rest of her {{Mooks}} on Ryuko with the promise of fighting her again once she takes them all down. That is, until Ryuko goes berserk and starts demolishing her school.
* PerpetualFrowner: Wears a stern expression at almost all times. Until episode 22, where her expression softens up a bit.
* PetTheDog: When Sanageyama decides to fight Ryuko, he tells Satsuki to invite him for tea after he wins. Even though she made no such promise, she still honors it after he beats Ryuko, but by that point Sanageyama can sadly no longer enjoy hot beverages.
** We get one of the first indications that Satsuki isn't as bad as she pretends to be during Gamagoori's flashback when she saves a helpless student from bullies and ruthlessly punishes said bullies.
** When Gamagoori loses to Ryuko during the Naturals Election, she [[InterruptedSuicide stops his attempt at suicide.]]
** After Nui destroys Senketsu, Satsuki forces her to leave Ryuko alive, then leaves Ryuko covered in a blanket and with one remaining piece of Senketsu.
* PresidentEvil: President is in her official title, she's the main antagonist, and based on how Honnouji Academy and environ is operated, it's basically a city-state under her iron fist.
* RapunzelHair: Down past her waist.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: As if being constantly on the end of CurbStompBattle[=s=] lately wasn't enough, she is subject to lengthy speeches about how she is no where near as strong as she thinks she is, basically saying she is all talk. The fact that she was unable to use Junketsu [[spoiler: or any Kamui]] to its full potential is constantly brought up as proof of how weak and pathetic she is. Luckily her friends tend to be more pissed about these speeches than she is.
* RedHerring: Viewers thinking she was [[spoiler:Isshin's murderer]] were completely thrown off guard by episode 11. Not helping matters is that the silhouette of [[spoiler:the murderer]] looks more and more like her in Ryuko's flashbacks, though [[spoiler:the real killer]] looks closer to the silhouette in the first episode.
* RedOniBlueOni: The [[TheStoic cool]], [[WickedCultured cultured]] Blue Oni to Ryuko's Red Oni. Her Kamui even has blue highlights where Ryuko's has red. This being a WorldOfHam, however, she's prone to her own bouts of HotBlooded-ness.
* TheReveal: After seventeen episodes, it turns out [[spoiler:she has been preparing for thirteen years in order to fight her mother and destroy the Life Fibers.]]
* {{Revenge}}: Essentially her motivation for [[spoiler:starting a rebellion against her mother.]]
-->'''Satsuki''': [[spoiler:Ragyo Kiryuin!]] You shall pay for taking the lives of [[spoiler:my father Soichiro, and my little sister who was never even given a name!]]
* ReverseMole: [[WhamEpisode Episodes 17 and 18]] reveal that she has always been planning to [[spoiler:defeat her mother and stop the world take-over of the Life Fibers.]]
* TheRival: To Ryuko; they're mortal enemies, but there's still a sense of grudging, mutual respect for each other's strength between them. [[spoiler:Until episode 22, when they befriend each other and acknowledge each other as [[LongLostRelative sisters]].]]
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: Subverted; while she does have her parents' influence to thank for her position, she exploits and absorbs their power to use as her own rather than leech off of it.
** And then in [[spoiler:Episode 17, it's revealed that she's been doing this simply to gather enough strength to outright declare open rebellion against her mother and REVOCS/COVERS]].
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Unlike [[ReluctantFanserviceGirl Ryuko]], Satsuki immediately and fully embraces her Kamui's revealing form as a symbol of her mastery of its full power.
* SheathStrike: One delivered to the diaphragm is her favourite method of taking down opponents non-lethally.
* ShouldersOfDoom: Junketsu gives her massive shoulder spikes that serve as her outfit's eyes.
* ShutUpHannibal: She cranks a ''spectacular'' example of this against [[spoiler:Ragyo]] in Episode 17.
* SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset: When in her transformed state, she looks like a giant white ''hannya'' mask, with the fins as horns.
* TheSocialDarwinist: She arranges the Student Council based on their strength and superiority over other students. She even holds a "[[PunnyName Naturals Election]]"[[note]]Move the "s" over and you get "natural selection"[[/note]] after rooting all undesirable students out of her system.
* SpikesOfVillainy: Employed as a weapon; Junketsu's shoulder fins can become drill-shaped blades.
* StatuesqueStunner: Her exact height [[YourSizeMayVary varies from scene to scene]], but Satsuki's easily one of the tallest women in the show, and towers over Ryuko by at least a foot.
* StealthMentor: Was one to Ryuko and [[spoiler:Nudist Beach]] all along. All the fights and hardships she heaped on her opponents were aimed at making them strong enough to [[spoiler:help her in a fight against Ragyo]]. It's subverted however as [[spoiler:she overdid it with the damage she has done to Nudist Beach and actually weakened them which bit her in the ass later on.]]
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Ryuko's wearing Senketsu is almost ''conservative'' compared to how much skin Satsuki's shows while wearing an activated Junketsu.
* StudentCouncilPresident: [[ExaggeratedTrope Exaggerated]] [[UpToEleven to high holy hell and back]]. Not only is she in charge of the school, effectively outranking the principal, but has also dominated countless ''other'' schools across the country.
* SwordPlant: Her default position, spoofed by Mako (with an invisible sword) during her [[ChewbaccaDefense rant]] in episode 3.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Refers to herself by her full name quite a lot, usually when making a BadassBoast.
* ThongOfShielding: Again, absolutely literal. Junketsu's released form most closely resembles a sling bikini.
* [[TodayXTomorrowTheWorld Today Japan, Tomorrow The World]]: She has much of Japan in her grasp already. Once her takeover is complete, she can focus on conquering the rest of the world.
* TransformationSequence: Very much like Ryuko's.
* {{Ubermensch}}: Satsuki scoffs at society's petty standards of morality (and indecent exposure). [[spoiler:Initially as she admits she was wrong for following this philosophy.]]
* TheUnchosenOne: Possibly, Satsuki exerts great effort in wearing Junketsu and uses the phrase "Life Fiber Override" when she transforms [[spoiler: According to Ragyo, she is unfit to even wear a Kamui and thus only forces Junketsu to cooperate with her]]. Which while impressive, Ragyo points out, that [[spoiler:Satsuki's strength while wearing Junketsu pales in comparison to those who have bonded with Life Fibers such as herself and Ryuko.]]
** TheUnfavorite: After capturing [[spoiler:Satsuki, Ragyo tries to convince her of this by saying that Soichiro didn't trust Satsuki to fulfill his goals which is why he secretly raised Ryuko and gave her Senketsu and the Rending Scissors. Satsuki just ignores her.]]
* TheUnfettered: Satsuki will do anything and, if need be, go through anyone in order to achieve her goals. As she bluntly puts it, even if she has to be naked, if it serves a purpose in achieving her goals, then she doesn't really give a damn.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: She discussed this with Soroi, musing that she used hold back her opinion on how bitter Soroi made her tea, but it grew on her since he made it. Soroi apologizes for not knowing she was just humoring him, with Satsuki claiming it's fine, and that she must have been a more kind-hearted girl back then.
* VillainousFriendship: With Jakuzure, who she's known since kindergarten. It seems like a Type III until she addresses her by her first name, like she did as a kid, when she offers to transport Satsuki on her back in episode 15, firmly cementing it as a Type I:
-->'''Jakuzure:''' Just you watch, I'll catch up to her in no time!\\
'''Satsuki:''' Perhaps, but like this, you cannot get a higher eye level than mine. Can you, Nonon?\\
'''Jakuzure:''' Don't be silly.
* VillainousRescue: After Nui Harime destroys Senketsu and is about to deal the killing blow to Ryuko, Satsuki intervenes immediately before driving her off with a blatant death threat hanging over her head.
* VisionaryVillain: She's basically [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Raoh]] and [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Lordgenome]] in a school setting. To her, strength is the only virtue and the foundation of the school system she runs. Weakness is to be loathed, and weaklings to be pruned.
* WallRun: Satsuki once ''walked briskly'' up a building whilst wearing an activated Junketsu.
* WhenSheSmiles: Most of time she seems stern ([[spoiler: which makes sense considering her motivations and past.]]), [[spoiler: but when she finally came to understands her friendship with the Elite Four and that she has Ryuko as her sister with her against their mother, we get to see a really heartwarming smile.]]
* WickedCultured: Seems fond of sipping tea, and has a butler. [[spoiler:Subverted after her HeelFaceTurn, when she drinks tea with Nudist Beach.]]
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: She's had her totalitarian mindset since kindergarten.
* WorldDomination: Her ultimate goal.
* XanatosGambit: Satsuki excels at executing these on a regular basis.
** Her plot in episode 7, in which she permits Ryuko to start her own club to fight the other club presidents, ends with her able to weed out dozens of weaklings and gain an excuse to rebuild and fortify her system with a "Naturals Election". Even if that failed, it still would have ended with Ryuko being either destroyed or integrated into the system, and the one to cause it would have proven to be a worthy addition to the Student Council's inner circle.
** Episode 12 reveals another one: by pitting the students of Honnouji Academy against each other during the Naturals Election, and later having Ryuko fight the Elite Four, she was able to assess any weaknesses in their Goku Uniforms. Even though Ryuko took out her inner circle, she now possesses an upgraded arsenal capable of taking over Japan.
** Pulls yet another in episode 15. Though her armies are forced to withdraw from the Kansai region thanks to Ryuko's efforts, she uses the duel as a distraction for Jakuzure to locate and destroy the hidden Nudist Beach command center. Her enemies are left in a significantly weaker position, and the respite is much more benificial for Satsuki to regroup and rebuild.
** Episode 17 is the gambit of all her gambits. [[spoiler:Everything she did, the Naturals Election, upgrading her arsenal, the takeover of Japan, etc. was all for her [[HeelFaceTurn to rebel against Ragyo and to take down both COVERS and the Primordial Life Fiber]]. Ryuko and [[LaResistance Nudist Beach]] DidntSeeThatComing.]]
** In episode 21, despite being greatly outmatched by [[spoiler:a Junketsu-wearing Ryuko even while weaing Senketsu herself,]] she gives the Elite Four enough time to [[spoiler:try to forcefully separate Junketsu from Ryuko.]] Even after that failed, no thanks to Nui's arrival and the reveal that [[spoiler:Ryuko's entire body is tied to Junketsu,]] she still launches a last-ditch gambit by [[spoiler:making Mako wear Senketsu and making her snap Ryuko out of her brainwashing. It ultimately works.]]
* XanatosSpeedChess: At several point in the story she was forced to revise her plans in a hurry.
** In episode 12, after [[spoiler:Nui appeared and revealed that it was actually her who killed Ryuko's father.]] Satsuki confronted Ryuko and outright said that [[spoiler:it was actually her who sent Nui after Isshin, which was a lie to keep Ryuko from going after Nui.]]
** In episode 13, after [[spoiler:Nui destroys Senketsu]] Satsuki uses the opportunity in two different ways. [[spoiler: Firstly she hands out the pieces of Senketsu to her soldiers to give them a power up and gather data. Secondly she [[StealthMentor gives Ryuko an opportunity to train herself up by reclaiming the stolen pieces]].]]
** In episode 17, there is no indication that [[spoiler:she knew of the existence of the Primordial Life Fiber]], but when it was revealed to her she quickly adjusted her plans by [[spoiler:sending Iori and a Sewing Club Strike force to Kiryuin Manor to destroy the Primordial Life Fiber and COVERS]].
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade-A when wearing her Kamui, Junketsu.
[[/folder]]

!Elite Four
[[folder:General]]
The four strongest members of the Student Council hand-picked by Satsuki to act as her generals. They are all Three-Star students whose Goku Uniforms can transform into mighty suits of armor, giving them powers exceeded only by the Kamui themselves.
----
* AnimalMotifs: The first characters in their surnames ('''Gama'''goori, '''Sa'''nageyama, '''Inu'''muta, and '''Ja'''kuzure) mean "toad", "monkey", "dog", and "snake", respectively.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Invoked by their Goku Uniforms, which give students stronger powers the higher their rank. And considering their rank is the highest behind Satsuki herself, their might is unquestionable.
* BadassCrew: They'd need to be, considering Satsuki chose them to wear some of strongest kinds of Goku Uniforms around. And under her guidance they work ''incredibly'' well as a team when they have to.
* BerserkButton: None of them tolerate any insult to Satsuki, especially Gamagoori and Jakuzure.
* BroughtDownToBadass: Even after getting demoted to No-Stars and having their Goku Uniforms destroyed/confiscated in their matches with Ryuko, they still sit comfortably in the stands as the whole stadium crumbles around them, and later spring to obey Satsuki's order to evacuate the collapsing school, still in their tracksuits and/or underpants.
** Happens again in episode 19 when [[spoiler: their Goku Uniforms fall apart due to a month straight of battle with no maintenance. They are also shown to have become members of Nudist Beach.]]
** Just how badass have they become? In episode 21, [[spoiler: even without their uniforms, they're still able to fight Ryuko to a standstill and nearly defeat her. The only reason they didn't succeed was that somebody else crashed the party...]]
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Their hair and {{Transformation Sequence}}s have distinct colors:
** Gamagoori: Yellow
** Sanageyama: Green
** Inumuta: Blue
** Jakuzure: Pink
* CustomUniform: Unlike One-Star students, their Goku Uniforms are custom-made to fit their personal strengths and abilities. After losing those uniforms, they all don unique school tracksuits (except for [[ShirtlessScene Gamagoori]]); Inumuta's has a much higher collar than usual, Jakuzure's includes a beret with a skull on it, and Sanageyama's jacket is a BadassLongcoat.
** The same goes for Inumuta and Jakuzure's [[spoiler:Nudist Beach]] [[{{Stripperiffic}} "uniforms"]].
* DefeatEqualsFriendship: Gamagoori, Sanageyama, and Inumuta were all outdone by Satsuki before she made them her henchmen.
* {{Expy}}: More or less similar in personality and ability to the [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Four Generals]], and fill roughly the same role as early villains who are defeated to make way for the true villains.
* FaceFramedInShadow: In a truly villainous display, when Ragyo is about to kickstart her plan to [[spoiler:enslave humanity]]. [[spoiler:The villainous part is subverted when they are actually concealing their expressions ''from Ragyo'', who they betray right then and there]].
* FiveBadBand: With Satsuki being the BigBad, these four are as follows:
** TheDragon: Gamagoori
** TheBrute: Sanageyama
** TheEvilGenius: Inumuta
** TheDarkChick: Jakuzure
* FourIsDeath: The death of the normal students, that's for sure.
* FriendlyEnemy: When battling Ryuko they are ruthless, but outside of battle they seem to hold no hostility toward her and even compliment her abilities against other opponents. They also never fight her outside of school despite knowing where she was living. Gamagoori even gave Ryuko and Mako a ride when their scooter had run out of gas. [[spoiler: Episode 18 reveals that this is because they were using Ryuko to find weaknesses in their Goku Uniforms.]]
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: All four of them develop these in Episode 20 (colour-coded no less) when they realise Satsuki hasn't lost her will to fight.
* GoingCommando: As members of [[spoiler:Nudist Beach]] their only attire is a bandolier wrapped around their waists and strategically positioned pouches for the girls.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: They get shiny new uniforms in episode 15 with completely new transformations. Interestingly, Sanageyama and Nonon's new transformations are smaller and more compact compared to their old ones.
* NonchalantDodge: Sanageyama, Inumuta, and Jakuzure effortlessly avoid Gamagoori's wild attacks in episode 9.
* NoSell: They're not affected by the power pressure Goku Uniforms emit.
* PunchClockVillain: They're just as much mortal enemies to Ryuko as Satsuki during class, but when given a week off to prepare for the school Naturals Election, they all go about their own businesses rather than go after Ryuko.
* SpikesOfVillainy: A common feature of their Goku Uniforms, most prominently Sanageyama and Gamagoori (who even has them [[UpToEleven on the soles of his shoes]]).
* StrollingThroughTheChaos: They walk through an entire crowd of brawling students totally unfazed, [[OffhandBackhand elbowing those who lunge at them out of the way without batting an eyelid]].
* TransformationSequence: Like Ryuko and Satsuki, the Elite Four have their own transformations.
* VillainousFriendship: Type IV. As a collective group they are unified by their loyalty to Satsuki and seeing her ultimate goals achieved. From time to time they offer each other advice and aid, but don't shy away from refusing help or taking a jab at each other's failures. They tend to bicker and argue like close siblings; disagreements never come to violent blows, just snide remarks and playful mockery.
** After episode 18 they are revealed to have been [[spoiler: good guys and TrueCompanions the entire time.]]
* WeakButSkilled: A somewhat strange example; while they are far more powerful than other students, they have less power than Kamui users like Ryuko and Satsuki. They can fight and win against Ryuko not thanks to the power of their uniforms, but thanks to various tricks and skills they and their uniforms possess.
* WhatTheHellHero: Mikisugi is a little miffed that they didn't [[spoiler: try to team up with NB]], and that in order to [[spoiler:keep up their façade of loyalty to Ragyo Kiryuin, they not only didn't seek out their help, but they also launched an all-out assault on Nudist Beach which wound up badly crippling its forces. This, combined with the fact that Ragyo has most of Satsuki's [[RedShirtArmy Rank-and File]] under her control, leaves both Honnouji and NB badly unprepared to fight COVERS and the Primordial Life Fiber]].
* UndyingLoyalty: Initially only Gamagoori seemed to exhibit this, while the other three were more flippant about their loyalty to Satsuki. However, following the 17th episode it's quite obvious that all four of them feel this way. [[spoiler:They essentially picked a fight with the most powerful organization on the planet, the loss of which would equal death or worse for both them and their families. Nevertheless they still follow Satsuki without question.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Ira Gamagoori]]
!!Ira Gamagoori
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/unnamed_qq_screenshot20131025152329_1461.png
->"''Listen up, students of Honnouji Academy! As long as Ira Gamagoori draws breath, this academy's rules will stand firm!''"

->Voiced by: TetsuInada

The Disciplinary Committee Chair and Satsuki's loyal enforcer. Bombastic and relentless when punishing truants, Gamagoori will stop at nothing to mould the model student body. His Three-Star Goku Uniform, the Shackle Regalia, is unique in that it can transform into the more formidable Scourge Regalia when he absorbs enough damage.
----
* AntiVillain: Type I; he has no pity for opponents of the establishment, but as a member of the Disciplinary Committee he ''will'' help a student in need, even his enemy Ryuko.
* BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: Just when it seems that Maiko Ogure will get away with her actions, Gamagoori appears and kicks her out of the school for good.
* BondageIsBad: His Goku Uniform's transformation is themed after BDSM, which features whips, spikes, rope, and a ball gag.
** Subverted in episode 17 when [[spoiler:Satsuki and the entire Honnouji Academy pull HeelFaceTurn making Ira one of the good guys.]]
* ButNotTooForeign: According to WordOfGod, he's half American. To be precise, his father is an American soldier.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Starts off as brutish enforcer of Satsuki's rules. He mellows out somewhat and proves to be both a competent administrator and leader, being effectively Satsuki's [[TheDragon Dragon]]. He also proves very responsible and protective of the people under his care.
* CoatCape: In a flashback.
* CombatSadomasochist: The more he's hit, the stronger he gets. And he clearly enjoys it ''much'' more than he should.
-->'''Gamagoori''': That's it! More! Punish me more! I've been a bad boy!
* CombatTentacles: Scourge Regalia has a lot of whips that move in this manner, and is Gamagoori's main form of offense.
* CoolCar: Has a sweet sports car that he recently got a license for. [[RealMenWearPink It's baby pink]].
* DarkSkinnedBlond: Since dark-skin is considered a sign of an active individual, and BlondGuysAreEvil.
* {{Determinator}}: Before submitting to Satsuki, he told her he would never kneel before her no matter what. Sure enough, after Satsuki defeated him, he took her sheath and used it as crutch to keep himself from falling on his knees.
* DisappearedDad: Gamagoori's father walked out when he was very young, so his maternal uncle helped raise him instead.
* DontYouDarePityMe: He claims that should he ever shed a tear, he'll wipe it himself. When he does start crying, however, he can't handle the disgrace and tries to kill himself.
* TheDragon: Though he has the appearance and capabilities of TheBrute, he's actually the one who keeps the entire student body in line when Satsuki isn't around.
** NobleTopEnforcer: Gamagoori explains that it's the duty of committee members to help students off-campus, even if that student is Ryuko.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: He thinks that spinning his car is a valid method of fending off drive-by shooters. It doesn't end well. Not surprising considering he just got his license. Although it's mostly subverted as before he was attacked he was driving safely and properly.
* EveryoneHasStandards: While he berates Inumuta for daring to wear a tracksuit after being defeated by Ryuko, he does not say the same to Jakuzure, since she's a girl. And when Sanageyama shows up totally naked, he tells him to put on some clothes.
* FallenHero: When he was still a StudentCouncilPresident he opposed Satsuki's ruthless conquest of his school. After being beaten by her however, he joined her side but [[spoiler:he merely changed into an AntiHero, seeing how Satsuki was GoodAllAlong but [[GoodIsNotNice extremely]] [[PragmaticHero ruthless]].]]
* FashionableAsymmetry: Only wears one stocking as part of his [[spoiler:Nudist Beach uniform]].
* {{Foreshadowing}}: When he was attacked by the Automotive club he taunted them if they can keep up with his driving skills. The taunt was issued while the camera showed the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoshinsha_mark wakaba mark]] on his car, pretty much commenting on his driving skills and how his attempt at escaping will end.
* GoKartingWithBowser: In episode 8, when he passes Ryuko and Mako wheeling their busted scooter along the road and gives them a lift in his CoolCar.
* HamToHamCombat: He is challenged by Mako to a cheering competition for their respective sides during the King of the Hill Final Battle after he gets demoted.
* HeldBackInSchool: By his own choice so he could serve Satsuki when she entered high school.
* HiddenDepths: Initially comes off as a brutish LargeHam who solves problems by [[WhipItGood whipping the heck out them]]. Turns out he is a very thorough and competent administrator and leader who is well versed in bureaucracy, probably due to being a former StudentCouncilPresident.
* HitlerCam: Like Satsuki herself, most if not all of Gamagoori's shots when he's exercising his authority are angled in such a way, which coupled with his already impressive height makes him look ''infinitely'' [[YourSizeMayVary more vast than he already is]]. Especially prominent during the first episode when he's dealing with the spy and during his match with Ryuko when the angle he's presented in makes Gamagoori seem like a monumental structure rather than a person.
* IAmYourOpponent: During Ryuko's match against the Elite Four, Gamagoori ensures his chance to fight her first by requesting they fight in the order of how much cannon fodder they take out from least to greatest, then taking out the least number.
* IGaveMyWord: The reason he gives for wanting to [[spoiler:save Mako]]. [[RescueRomance Nonon knows better]], and teases him for it.
* IncomingHam: "'''I'M ON OFFICIAL BUSINESS!!!'''"
* InsaneTrollLogic: He attempts to dodge an enemy pursuit by spinning the car. It goes as well as [[EpicFail you'd expect]].
* InterruptedSuicide: He attempts to perform {{Seppuku}} after losing to Ryuko. [[PetTheDog Satsuki, however, stops him.]]
* LargeAndInCharge: He ''towers'' over the Elite Four, and is also the enforcer of Satsuki's rules. When in battle he often acts as Satsuki's NumberTwo.
* LargeHam: Perhaps the biggest ham in [[WorldOfHam an entire school of]] [[JustForPun clothes-wearing pigs]], seeing how he ''[[NoIndoorVoice never stops screaming]]''.
* {{Leitmotif}}: The first half of "goriLLA蛇L",[[note]]''Gorilla Jaru''[[/note]] which features angry guitars, pounding percussion, and panic-inducing synth riffs.
* LimitBreak: How his Shackle/Scourge Regalia works; if he keeps getting hit while he's unable to move, he will eventually explode with power.
** LogicalWeakness: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]; the weakness in question, which Ryuko tries to exploit, would be to not attack him while in his Shackle Regalia. He rectifies this by whipping himself.
* MachoMasochism: Episode 8, shows he likes being attacked by others. [[FreudWasRight It gets really risqué]]; [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything he describes his defenses as "towering higher" and "getting harder" until they all burst out]] and he pulls a OneWingedAngel.
* ManlyTears: He says he's not afraid to cry, as he clearly shows after losing to Ryuko.
* MightyGlacier: He barely moves an inch while using his Shackle Regalia, instead letting his opponents hit him so he can repay the damage doubly using his Scourge Regalia. He even refers to himself as Satsuki's "impenetrable shield".
* NoIndoorVoice: About the only times he ''doesn't'' scream at the top of his lungs are when he's talking to Satsuki.
* OneHeadTaller: Ironically Gamagoori ''only'' seems to achieve this when placed near Satsuki, to accentuate his demure attitude towards her. Around everybody else he [[YourSizeMayVary ranges from "big" to]] "{{kaiju}}".
* OvershadowedByAwesome: He seemed rather proud of his Vacuum Fist which could [[spoiler:destroy a COVERS and simultaneously rescue its victim]]. But then [[spoiler:Ryuko woke up and did the same to a whole host of COVERS in under 10 seconds.]] Ira was not amused.
* PersonalityPowers: Shackle Regalia allows him to punish himself for his past failings and to show other students true discipline. Scourge Regalia allows him to beat those same students into line.
* PetTheDog: Seems to form a peculiar soft spot for Mako, showing remarkable tolerance of her wacky antics as well as reluctance to fight her seriously or let her put herself in harm's way. Goes into full-blown ShipTease when Gamagoori [[spoiler:leaps to her rescue and cries out Mako's name before she's absorbed by COVERS]], as well as his embarrassment in seeing her [[spoiler:nude after rescuing her]].
* PrinciplesZealot: Even as he and Ryuko are raring to fight, he insists they wait another four hours for their match to begin as scheduled, ''because those are the rules''.
* PunnyName: His name sounds like "gorilla" if said quickly; fitting for someone of his size. "Ira" also means "chastise", his favourite pastime.
* {{Samurai}}: He's not one, but he does share some common elements, such as his strong sense of honour, his attempted seppuku and the CherryBlossoms in his flashback.
* ShirtlessScene: After being defeated by Ryuko and demoted to No-Star, be spends almost three whole episodes in his underwear.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: After [[spoiler:rescuing Mako from COVERS]], Nonon teases Gamagoori, telling him to stop flirting with Mako, which he [[SheIsNotMyGirlFriend furiously denies doing.]] Given that Mako is [[spoiler:butt naked at the time and Gamagoori avoids looking at her and blushes, [[ShipTease Nonon may be onto something.]]]]
* StudentCouncilPresident: He used to be one at his middle school before transferring to Honnouji Academy.
* TechnicalPacifist: Gamagoori does not pick fights unless he is provoked or must enforce the rules. If it's possible to avoid violence to achieve his goals, Gamagoori is not above attempting that avenue first. He similarly cannot attack in his Shackle Regalia unless he receives damage first.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Ira sees [[spoiler:Tsumugu]] using three Vacuum Fists, gives it a moment of thought and then equips himself with nine of them. Extra points because [[spoiler:Tsumugu had them attached to his power armor]] while Ira lifts and uses them with nothing but his own muscles.
* ThrowTheBookAtThem: Figuratively ''and'' literally. His school regulation pocket books are thrown like daggers to defeat the Kobe rugby team during Raid Trip. The pocket books are powerful ''because'' they contain "iron-clad" enforced regulations... and also because they're made entirely of folded steel, but his version sounds better.
* UndyingLoyalty: He is noted for his fierce loyalty to Satsuki. His only thoughts seem to be about enforcing her rules, and his loyalty is much more prominent and outspoken than his colleagues'.
* UnusualEyebrows: Like ears of wheat.
* UnwittingPawn: In episode 13, punishing Mako for spreading news against Satsuki didn't seem important at the time, but if he hadn't taken her away to perform labor service, she would have been there for Ryuko when [[spoiler:Nui Harime (the manipulator of the situation) attacked and Senketsu might have escaped destruction]].
* WeaponsThatSuck: In episode 19, he gets the "Emergency Rescue Suction Device", an ArmCannon which is able to [[spoiler:suck away the host inside COVERS and kill the COVER in the progress.]]
* WhipItGood: His Goku Uniform generates red, thorny lashes. They turn brown and he gets even more of them when transformed.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Subverted; the reason he looks so much older than your standard high school student is because he deliberately waited two years for Satsuki to graduate, so they could enrol in high school together.
* YourSizeMayVary: By virtue of the show's DerangedAnimation, he has only one set height, and that's "bigger than you". And even then, he seems to grow larger with every episode.

!!Uzu Sanageyama
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screen_shot_2013-10-05_at_3_17_4891.jpeg
[[caption-width:300:[[labelnote:Click here to see him with his mask]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sanegeyama-masked_1801.png[[/labelnote]]]]
->"''So you're dead set on this. All right, show me the power of a man's resolve!''"

->Voiced by: Creator/NobuyukiHiyama

The Athletic Committee Chair, commanding officer to the various sports clubs in Honnouji Academy. Sanageyama is rather laid back, but makes no effort to mask his true passion for serving Satsuki. He is also a kendo practitioner, with his Three-Star Goku Uniform Blade Regalia allowing him to see from any angle with great accuracy.
----
* ActorAllusion: Most of the scripting for his character is a tribute to [[Creator/NobuyukiHiyama his seiyuu]], who previously played [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Viral]].
** An [[ShoutOut ironic backlash]] was made known when Nui shreds his Goku Uniform:
--> '''Nui''': "Go back to being a naked ape!"
** Episode 19 features a scene where Sanageyama faces flying enemies with a damaged Goku uniform, pleading for it to "hold on just a bit longer", very similar to when Viral faced flying enemies with his damaged Gunmen. Additionally, the two scenes feature an identical shot from above.
* AffablyEvil: He's the most laid-back of the Elite Four, makes quips in humorous situations, and at least appears to treat his committee members fairly.
* AnimeHair: When he was younger.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: He's a superb swordsman, but he's also overly reliant on his Tengantsu in battle. Fortunately for Ryuko, she is able to exploit this. ''Un''fortunately for her, he learns from his mistakes.
* {{Badass}}: Considering his position, there's little doubt of this.
** BadassLongcoat: His uniform design.
** HandicappedBadass: After he trades off his eyesight, if his uniform hadn't overheated, he would've defeated Ryuko for good.
* BenevolentBoss: While not above beating the crap out of his committee members for disobedience, he's usually there to give them words of encouragement, and is not happy about Ryuko defeating them.
* BishonenLine: As his Blade Regalia uniform is gradually upgraded, it becomes more sleek and humanoid, with less bulky armor.
* BlackSheep: Was a disruptive delinquent from a well-to-do family. Eventually, his father got fed up with him, punched him out, and [[DareToBeBadass challenged him to do something with his life]] if he was so sick of being TheUnfavorite. Thus, Sanageyama formed the [[BadassCrew Northern Kanto Bancho Alliance]].
* BladeBrake: He breaks his fall using his bamboo sword after being knocked off the tournament platform by Nui Harime.
* BlindWeaponmaster: He's a master of the bamboo sword, but once he sews his eyes shut and [[DisabilitySuperpower heightens his remaining senses, granting him the all-seeing Shingantsu, he becomes all the more formidable.]]
* BloodKnight: While still loyal, he takes a great interest in fighting strong enemies, to the point where he personally requests Satsuki to make a one-time exception to the rule that the Elite Four are forbidden to fight Ryuko. In fact, the promise of being able to fight to his heart's content in Satsuki's new school was the reason he joined her in the first place.
* BreakTheHaughty: He takes great pride in his Tengantsu, so to be defeated when Ryuko counters it with a simple tactic is extremely humiliating for him. It prompts him to sew his eyes shut so she'll never be able to exploit this weakness again.
** Happens again in episode 11 when he tries to attack Nui Harime for interrupting his fight with Ryuko.
* TheBrute: He's a BloodKnight, and his PowerArmor is positively huge, like a [[AnimalMotifs gorilla]].
* ButtMonkey: [[JustForPun Hehe]]. Sanageyama is always raring to go fight Ryuko, but the times that he's able to, he's first defeated by her, then Ryuko escapes when his Goku Uniform overheats in their rematch. During their match in the King of the Hill FinalBattle, Nui Harime interrupts and quickly defeats him by de-threading his Goku Uniform of its Banshi Life Fiber [[FingerPokeOfDoom with her pinky]]. The guy just can't catch a break.
* CallingYourAttacks: {{Justified}}, as it's part of being a proper ''kendoka''.
-->'''Sanageyama''': ''MEN! DOU! KOTE!'' ([[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown repeat hundreds of times]])
* CharClone: Is significantly faster and more attentive than the other members of the Elite Four, and wears a mask as of episode 6.
* CompensatingForSomething: He likes to hold his sword close to his crotch during lulls in his fights, and his uniform has a belt with an enormous solid metal buckle adorned with three long spikes. Keep in mind that WordOfGod says he has a TeenyWeenie.
* DeadpanSnarker: Is very cool-headed and questions the awkward mindsets of others surrounding him all the time, Mako more often than not.
-->'''Sanageyama''': [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} That one]] has resolve, too. That, or she's an idiot.
* {{Determinator}}: After being easily defeated by Ryuko for his overconfidence in his [[SuperSenses eyesight]], Satsuki tells him he is too lacking in resolve to continue serving her. So he proves he has that resolve by [[EyeScream sewing his eyes shut]]. Later on, he also keeps his Goku uniform far longer than the rest of the Elite Four after fighting [[spoiler:the COVERS]] for one month straight.
* DisabilitySuperpower: Blinding himself and losing his Tengantsu, combined with the power of his Goku Uniform, sharpens his other senses into the all-seeing Shingantsu.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He shows outright disgust with Kaneo Takarada for making common citizens fight for him in episode 14.
* EyeScream: When he finds he relied too much on his sight fighting Ryuko, he has his eyes sewn shut.
* FullPotentialUpgrade: His EyeScream increases his power to such a degree he overheats his Goku Uniform, requiring it to be upgraded after this allows Ryuko to escape.
* FunTShirt: Wore one that said "bad boy" when he first met Satsuki.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: If the way he holds his [[SceneryCensor sword]] while posing naked in episode 12 serves as any indication.
* HighCollarOfDoom: To go with his delinquent motif.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Ryuko overcomes his [[SuperSenses super sight]] by covering his face plate with Senketsu's cloth, blinding him long enough to cut him down. He learns from this and as a result he becomes a much bigger threat.
* HotBlooded: He's voiced by Creator/NobuyukiHiyama, what on Earth were you expecting? Though Sanageyama's character is a bit more on the tamed and mature side.
* {{Hunk}}: In a cast full of borderline {{gonk}}, he's noticeably very attractive, not to mention in great shape.
* HyperAwareness: After his eyes are sewn shut, his Goku Uniform extends his awareness to ''the entire world'', and it's not much of a hyperbole.
* ICanStillFight: Unlike with Satsuki's other subordinates, stripping him of his uniform does not strip him of the will to fight.
* IHaveManyNames: Lampshaded by the episode 6 preview, which is almost entirely spent listing his titles.
* ImplausibleFencingPowers: Best demonstrates his abilities by being able to deflect bullets and cut missiles in half during the Raid Trip in episode 14.
* JapaneseDelinquent: He was one during his middle school days.
* KendoTeamCaptain: His rank and practice of kendo suggests he is this. Given the high social status kendo has in Japanese society, it's no wonder this guy was picked as one of the Elite Four.
* {{Leitmotif}}: The second half of "犬Kあ3L",[[note]]Inu ka Saru[[/note]] a lively, fast-paced piece with an Oriental feel.
* LookWhatICanDoNow: When he first fights Ryuko, he shows off his Tengantsu ability that gives him super sight, [[HoistByHisOwnPetard which proves to be his downfall. In their rematch, he reveals that he traded out his Tengantsu (and his eyes with it) for the much more potent Shingantsu, which lets him "see" with his other senses. Add that to the powers of his Goku Uniform, and he can pretty much sense anything and everything, everywhere.]]
* MalevolentMaskedMan: Becomes one at the end of episode 6, wearing a mask to cover the scars on his eyes.
* MiniMecha: His uniform becomes this once transformed.
* NoShirtLongJacket: During his second fight with Ryuko, to [[BandageBabe show off his bandaged torso]].
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Holds this view toward Ryuko. [[MoodWhiplash He proclaims this while being butt-naked]].
* PintSizedKid: It's noted that he was pretty scrawny when he was 15, and has since grown to almost unrecognisable heights in the last three years (being even taller than Satsuki nowadays).
* PowerArmor: His Blade Regalia, which resembles a giant mecha bogu.
* PreAsskickingOneLiner: In Episode 6.
-->'''''[[TranquilFury "Here I come."]]'''''
* ScarsAreForever: There are cross-shaped scars across his eyes from the stitches.
* ShamelessFanserviceGuy: Being completely naked doesn't stop him from trying to keep fighting. He didn't even think to put underwear on until Gamagoori ordered him to.
* ShonenHair: Particularly after blinding himself and acquiring the mask.
* SpeedEchoes: His Goku Uniform is so fast it can leave behind after-images to distract his opponent with.
* StraightMan: A rare HotBlooded example, verses a cast full of {{Large Ham}}s, especially visible when interacting with {{Cloudcuckoolander}} [[BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine Mako]].
* SuperSenses: His Tengantsu ability gives him super sight, which lets him pick up on subtle body gestures to predict his enemies' moves.
** LogicalWeakness: Due to his heightened senses after blinding himself, he can't endure anything that's [[SensoryOverload too severe to his other senses.]]
* SuperSpeed: Contrary to his Blade Regalia's bulky appearance, he moves so fast he can actually hit each of Ryuko's ''SpeedEchoes''.
* StealthHiBye: Twice in episode 6, though Satsuki notices him both times. The second time, however, Sanageyama does it ''right in front of her'' when she assumes he's behind her.
* TaremeEyes: Worth noting because, for a tough former-delinquent in a HotBlooded action show, this dude's eyes are HUGE. They look better suited to someone half his age.
* TeenyWeenie: If [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/makotakesmeasurements_3333.png Mako's assessment]] is to be trusted. [[WordOfGod Trigger has confirmed that Mr. Monkey's schlong is indeed severely lacking]].
* TookALevelInBadass: By blinding himself and sharpening his other senses with his Goku Uniform, he is able to predict enemies' movements like never before. This practically makes him the most dangerous of the Elite Four considering the NoHoldsBarredBeatdown he delivered to Ryuko and the highest counter of victories in the Naturals Election.
* TranquilFury: He spends much of his second match with Ryuko in a chilling calm rather than his usual HotBlooded self.
* TheUnfavorite: According to WordOfGod, Sanageyama was constantly and unfavorably compared to his older brother. His irritation over it is partly why he fell into delinquency.
* WoodenKatanasAreEvenBetter: His weapon of choice is a bamboo sword that can cut missiles in half.
* TheWorfEffect: Has seen both sides of the coin: he utterly thrashes Ryuko after he [[TookALevelInBadass gains his Blade Regalia Mk.II]], and is built up as her final opponent during the Naturals Election. But when it finally comes time for the two of them to fight, Nui crashes the fight and demolishes his uniform ''[[FingerPokeOfDoom with her pinky]]''.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Green Hair]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: RareMaleExample. His [[spoiler:Nudist Beach uniform]] comes with a pair of bicep-length gloves and ThighHighBoots, which the audience finds it hard not to focus on.

->"''It's one unbelievable thing after another here. That's what makes this academy so fascinating.''"

->Voiced by: Creator/HiroyukiYoshino

The Information and Strategy Committee Chair, charged with the finance and strategic planning of the Student Council. Unlike his fellow elites, Inumuta is more interested in gathering data on Ryuko's Kamui rather than defeating her. His Three-Star Goku Uniform, Probe Regalia, allows him to analyze and predict his enemies' moves in the heat of battle.
----
* AdjustingYourGlasses: By the corner. Pushing either one side, or both sides of the lenses using just one or two fingers. [[MundaneMadeAwesome Double the badass level when he performs this]] alongside Sewing Club President Iori.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Played straight when he uses his skills to pinpoint the weak spot in a 50% Life Fiber Goku Uniform and [[OneHitKill unravel it in one hit]].
** {{Defied}} to the point of {{Deconstruction}}, however, in his fight against Ryuko. She is [[GenreSavvy familiar enough]] with guys that use this strategy to know that using dangerous and/or just plain stupid techniques can throw off their contingency plans enough to turn the tables on them, so she starts off the match by overclocking Senketsu to the point where Inumuta's calculations can't catch up with her attacks.
* BerserkButton: He threatens Mako with death when she bumps into his laptop.
* TheCracker: Before attending Honnouji Academy, Inumuta was a street punk who would hack into and ruin big name corporate networks [[ItAmusedMe for the fun of it]]. Thanks to Satsuki, he was given the chance to crack the real-world system instead of a virtual one.
* DeadpanSnarker: Though he's a lot more subtle about it than others.
-->'''Inumuta:''' Oh, how fascinating. I'll file away that bit of snide commentary.
* DoingResearch: His main concern with Ryuko is simply gathering information on everything she and Senketsu are capable of.
* EnemyScan: His Goku Uniform can pinpoint his opponents' weaknesses and predict their attack trajectories. Ryuko manages to exceed his calculations simply by being reckless enough.
* EvilGenius: He's the council's information analyst and strategist, so of course he'd be this.
* FanservicePack: Inumuta's TransformationSequence shows him with minimum muscle-definition, however after [[spoiler:joining Nudist Beach]] and going shirtless he looks much more toned than before.
* FourEyesZeroSoul: He wears glasses, and is also a cold and calculating supergenius.
* FutureSpandex: His Goku Uniform, Probe Regalia, which is more restrained-looking than his [[PoweredArmor fellow]] [[MiniMecha elites']]. It's [[UnusualUserInterface covered in keyboards]] too.
* GeekPhysiques: Of the skinny sort, [[FanservicePack at least until episode 19]]. [[spoiler:Nudist Beach]] must have one hell of a fitness program.
* HighCollarOfDoom: His collar is like a mouth mask, and will zip closed whenever he decides to stop speaking. When he's demoted, he switches to a high-collared warm-up jacket, and as a member of [[spoiler:Nudist Beach]] he keeps the collar despite not wearing a shirt.
** [[JustForPun Considering Inumuta is the "dog" of the operation...]]
* InTheHood: In flashbacks to when he was recruited by Satsuki, he wears a red hoodie.
* InvisibilityCloak: His Goku Uniform's Optical Camouflage.
* ItAmusedMe: During middle school, Inumuta broke into the world's tightest online security system because of the challenge it presented. Satsuki was disappointed that someone so brilliant could be so small-minded, and offered him to be a part of something with a much greater purpose.
* JapanesePronouns: A rather odd, non-plot-related example. In episode 6 he briefly uses ''boku'', but permanently switches to ''ore'' for his other appearances.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: He knows when he's been beaten and surrenders to Ryuko before she can shred his uniform so he won't lose the data he's gathered on her. Doesn't stop him from being demoted, though.
* {{Leitmotif}}: The first half of "犬Kあ3L",[[note]]Inu ka Saru[[/note]] which fittingly enough has a rather cold, electronic sound.
* MissionControl: The reason he's a NonActionGuy. Notable examples are during the subjugation of Kansai, and [[spoiler:this seems to be his primary function as an officer of Nudist Beach.]]
* MrExposition: According to Jakuzure, this is his role in the Elite Four, and he has fulfilled it on multiple occasions and [[SeriousBusiness with great enthusiasm]]. Of course, he can't really explain things that he has no information about, like who Nui Harime is, or how she's able to tear a Goku Uniform to shreds by pulling a single thread out.
* NonActionGuy: Ryuko beats him with less trouble than she had against some two-star students, his role during the Kansai conquering arc is tech support, and he's the only one of the Elite Four to not even land a hit on Nui in Episode 18.
** He also hasn't fought once since [[spoiler:joining Nudist Beach.]]
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: Aikuro's striptease seems to have absolutely zero effect on him.
* OneWayVisor: Wears this while transformed, and comes with a HUD display.
* RapidFireFisticuffs: With his feet, since he needs his hands for...
** RapidFireTyping: Does it all over his body when using Probe Regalia. While striking ridiculous poses.
* ReadingsAreOffTheScale: When he's cornered by Ryuko, his visor flashes "DOES NOT COMPUTE" in bright red text.
** ReadingsBlewUpTheScale: The direct consequence of the above.
* RecruitingTheCriminal: Satsuki recruited Inumuta after witnessing him hack into her conglomerate's computer system and destroy their stock holdings.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: Not that scary, but those shiny blue lenses look pretty cool.
* SnarkToSnarkCombat: He trades potshots with Jakuzure almost every time they talk. While she finds it annoying, he seems to find it amusing.
* SquishyWizard: One solid hit is enough to render him defenseless.
* StoicSpectacles: He's the only one of the Elite Four who rarely smiles and almost never raises his voice. [[NotSoStoic Unless you]] [[BerserkButton damage his laptop]].
* SurroundedByIdiots: His sentiment when Mako sums up his TechnoBabble as "Ryuko is really awesome!" and Gamagoori just agrees with her.
* TeenGenius: In middle school, he managed to bypass one of the tightest security systems in the world just for kicks.
* TheWorfBarrage: Fires [[spoiler:the ''Naked Sun'''s main cannons]] at [[spoiler:a Junketsu-wearing Ryuko.]] While it fails to even dent his target, it provides enough time for [[spoiler:Ira to use his "Emergency Rescue Suction Device" at point-blank range as to separate Junketsu from Ryuko.]]

->"''Oh, dear. The toad, the monkey, and the dog have all screwed up.''"

->Voiced by: Mayumi Shintani

The Non-Athletic Committee Chair and commander of the school's culture clubs. She boasts having been Satsuki's friend since kindergarten, and fancies herself Satsuki's equal. As a music conductor, Jakuzure's Three-Star Goku Uniform Symphony Regalia is a mobile sound system that utilizes sound-based attacks and musical instrument-shaped artillery.
----
* AirstrikeImpossible: Her ''real'' mission during the Raid Trip is destroying Nudist Beach's well-protected, well-hidden ElaborateUndergroundBase below Osaka. Despite the chaotic situation (including having to aid Satsuki during her fight with Ryuko), she manages to complete the mission anyway.
* BadassNormal: Even without her uniform and as a [[spoiler:Nudist]] she still kicks [[spoiler:COVERS]] ass with ease.
* BerserkButton: For all the fun she has taunting others, she can't stand being on the receiving end. But that's nothing compared to letting someone other than herself fly in "her" sky.
* BishonenLine: Her Symphony Regalia Da Capo is a simple music conductor's uniform, whereas her Grave/Presto form is an [[MiniMecha armored tank.]]
* BitchInSheepsClothing: She always makes fun of her peers while keeping up a sugary sweet façade.
* BrownNote: Her Da Capo's hat cannon can disrupt the connection between uniform and user through resonance with Life Fibers.
* CatSmile: Most noticeable when she's not speaking.
* TheChessmaster: Shows elements of this in episode 5, as she knows how Satsuki thinks and how to best interpret the motives of her orders.
* ChildhoodFriends: With Satsuki. They've known each other since kindergarten, and Jakuzure considers her a close friend and an equal.
* CoolHat: It can even be mounted with a sound cannon!
* CuteButCacophonic: Her voice is an interesting mix of rasp, growl, and squeak.
* CutYourHeartOutWithASpoon: She threatens to replace Inumuta's glasses with non-prescription ones if he ever talks smack to her again.
* DarkActionGirl: She's a BitchInSheepsClothing who pilots a flying tank and fires bursts of sound from her hat.
* DarkChick: Sole female of the Elite Four? Check. Has the most colorful personality? Check. Loves reminding her fellow elites she clicks with their master more than any of them? Check. Pilots a massive airship whereas the others just wear suits of armor? That's gotta count for ''something''.
* DeadlyDisc: Her Regalia can fire razor-edged musical notes.
* DeadpanSnarker: She's left feeling most bitter after getting beaten and demoted.
-->'''Inumuta''': I managed to collect excellent data. Thank you.\\
'''Jakuzure''': Bite me.
* ElegantGothicLolita: Her appearance is this crossed with a marching band uniform.
* EvilCounterpart: She can be seen as one to Mako through their relationships with Satsuki and Ryuko, respectively. Both are the more lively, girlier best friends of their more serious-minded partners, and will support them to the very end. But whereas Mako is a poor yet [[CloudCuckooLander wacky]], FunPersonified NiceGirl, Nonon is a [[SmugSnake smug]], [[BitchInSheepsClothing spoiled brat in sheep's clothing]]. Also contrasting is how long they've known their closest friends; Mako didn't meet Ryuko until she transferred to Honnouji, while Nonon and Satsuki are ChildhoodFriends.
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: She's usually surrounded by stuffed animals to play with TheFakeCutie image.
* GunsAkimbo: Done with two missile pods no less, unleashing a one person MacrossMissileMassacre in episode 21.
* HeroicSecondWind: One of the few villain examples with Da Capo.
* InstantFanclub: She had one of these at her beck and call in kindergarten.
* InstrumentOfMurder: Her transformed uniform can launch giant recorder missiles, as well as fire cymbals and bladed musical notes.
* JapaneseHonorifics: She calls Satsuki "Satsuki-''sama''" most of the time like anyone else, but at emotional moments she'll switch to "Satsuki-''chan''" or even forgo honorifics altogether.
** Surprisingly, considering they're not shown to be all that close, she calls Gamagoori "Ira-''chan''" in Episode 13, thus being the only person so far to call him by his first name. Then again, she was using a normally affectionate honorific in a poisonously sarcastic manner:
-->'''Nonon''': Yeah, nobody wants to see you commit seppuku, Ira-''chan''. The clean-up of your guts would be a pain.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Still kind of arrogant and unpleasant, [[spoiler: but she did return to Honnouji to look for survivors all but single-handedly, and got Mataro and his gang of kids out.]]
* JetPack: Her second Regalia has this.
* {{Kawaiiko}}: She was definitely this as a kindergartener, with her adorable little pet monkey and sickeningly cute squeaky noises with every step she took.
* KnifeNut: After the one month timeskip in episode 19, [[spoiler:she started wielding the smaller broken piece of Bakuzan, retooled as a combat knife, to great effect in lieu of her lost Goku uniform. Particularly notable since her Goku was a long range attack type and she has shown no close-quarter combat skills before this.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: The second half of "goriLLA蛇L",[[note]]''Gorilla Jaru''[[/note]] which, appropriately for a drum major, features military drums and brass fanfares.
* LetsGetDangerous: When she's in a fight, she drops her normally squeaky voice for a more intimidating one, especially if she's sufficiently pissed.
* LittleMissBadass: She holds the second-highest elimination total during the Naturals Election, just behind [[TheBrute Sanageyama]].
* LoudOfWar: Plays her music at full blast with some epic bass to harass Ryuko.
* LovesTheSoundOfScreaming: While playing music during her battle with Ryuko in episode 10, she decides it's lacking a certain something: the sounds of Ryuko's screams.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: Her Musical Barrage attack.
* MagicalGirlWarrior: An evil one, sure, but when you see a MagicalGirl piloting an armored tank, she's bound to kick ass.
* MagicMissileStorm: She fires musical bar-shaped energy at the battle arena to eliminate Ryuko.
* MakeWayForThePrincess: She enjoyed this treatment in her kindergarten years, with all the boys even building her a royal-sized castle in the school sandbox.
* MiniMecha: Her Symphony Regalia is a flying tank, as Ryuko lampshades.
-->'''Ryuko''': On what planet is that a uniform?!
* MoreDeadlyThanTheMale: She taunts this when saying that the battle with her will not be like Gamagoori's and Inumuta's.
* MusicalAssassin: Her transformed uniform is a massive surround sound system tank that can ditch the treads to turn into a VTOL fighter instead.
* TheNapoleon: She's ''tiny'' (quite probably the shortest non-child character in the series), and she's got a big ego to match.
* NiceHat: Wears them in all of her appearances, in particular her Goku Uniform marching band hat, which is decked out with a decorative monkey skull. [[FridgeHorror Which may or may not belong to the pet monkey she had as a kid...]]
* TheNicknamer: She calls others names on numerous occasions, mostly her fellow elites:
** She never calls Ryuko by name, instead addressing her as "[[NewTransferStudent Transfer Student]]".
** In episode 1, she calls Gamagoori "Gama-''kun''" (Froggy), Sanageyama "Saru-''kun''" (Monkey), and Inumuta "Inu-''kun''" (Doggy)--a reference to the AnimalMotifs in their last names.
** In episode 5, she calls Inumuta "Megane-''kun''" (Four Eyes).
** After episode 6, she often calls Sanageyama the somewhat derogatory "Yamazaru-''san''" (Wild Monkey).
** From episode 7 onwards, she refers to Mako as "Underachiever".
** In episode 15, she calls Inumuta "Wan-''chan''", which means the same as "Inu-''kun''", but is [[BelligerentSexualTension ten times cuter]].
** Turned around in episode 19, where she demands that Mataro call her by her name (or preferably Nonon-''sama'') instead of "Elite Four chick" while still calling him "that slacker's brother/slacker junior"; Gamagoori reprimands her for expecting to be addressed by name without extending the same courtesy.
* OlderThanSheLooks: Not counting her hat, she's much shorter than the other Elite Four members and Satsuki. However, she's known Satsuki since kindergarten which implies that they are both third years.
* OrchestralBombing: Weaponized.
* PerkyFemaleMinion: She cheerily prances into battle with a full marching band following her, and her TransformationSequence is the most MagicalGirl-esque of all the characters. [[BitchInSheepsClothing Then she has her VillainousBreakdown...]]
* PinkMeansFeminine: Being the only female Elite Four, Jakuzure's Goku Uniform predominantly features pink when transformed.
* PunnyName: Her first name contains the character for "sound".
* RoseHairedSweetie: [[BitchInSheepsClothing Only on the surface]], mind you.
* SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset: Her Goku Uniform features bone motifs and what appears to be the skeletal remains of a rock star draped over her shoulders.
* SmallGirlBigGun: Her Goku "Uniform" is a flying tank. In Episode 21 she wields a pair of shoulder-mounted rocket launchers.
* SmugSnake: She thinks quite highly of herself since she knew Satsuki when they were toddlers. Fitting enough for a girl with [[AnimalMotifs the word "snake" literally in her name]].
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: She's the only female among the Elite Four, though they ''are'' commanded by a woman.
* SnarkToSnarkCombat: Most of her interactions with Inumuta are this. At first it seems she finds it annoying, but the light novel on the Elite Four hints she might actually enjoy teasing him.
* SweetTooth: She's seen having sweets with her in the Student Council's meeting room and eating a lollipop.
* UndyingLoyalty: Like Gamagoori, she is very loyal to Satsuki and has been with her since kindergarten.
* VillainousBreakdown: She really starts to lose her cool when Ryuko manages to match her in the air with Senketsu Shippu, dropping her cutesy act entirely and adopting a perpetual, sickening hiss in her voice from there onward.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Among the Elite Four, she interacts the most with Inumuta. While it's mainly trading snark, they do have their moments, most notably in episode 15.
* WaveMotionGun: Subverted. Her Symphony Regalia Da Capo's bass cannon is like this at first glance, but the weapon is not actually based on amplitude so much as inducing resonance.
* WeaponizedHeadgear: Her hat in Da Capo mode has a bass cannon.
* WeHaveReserves: She sends three relatively weak clubs against Ryuko and Tsumugu in order to test the pair's combat abilities. She doesn't exactly seem too concerned that all three clubs [[CurbstompBattle get wiped out]].
* WickedCultured: She's a total BitchInSheepsClothing, but she also has a taste for playing classical music even in the heat of battle.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Pink Hair]]

!Club Presidents
[[folder:General]]
Honnouji Academy students who run the school clubs and work directly under the Elite Four as henchmen. Only they are permitted to wear Two-Star Goku Uniforms that grant them superpowers greater than One-Stars' simple {{Status Buff}}s, but nowhere near as powerful as Three-Stars.
----
* ClothingDamage: Their uniforms all get destroyed when Ryuko defeats them.
* CustomUniform: Like the Elite Four, their Goku Uniforms are made to stand out among their club members. Most notably, their star crests and weapons glow a luminescent red.
* EliteMooks: While ordinary One-Star students can be taken out by Ryuko with ease, these guys can give her a run for her money on a bad day.
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: They answer to the real bosses of the school.
* SpikesOfVillainy: Like the Elite Four, a good many of the club presidents' uniforms have these features.

->Voiced by: Creator/YujiUeda

The Sewing Club President and nephew of Satsuki's butler, Soroi. He oversees the research and development of the Goku Uniforms.
----
* ActorAllusion: A feminine-looking, long-haired {{Megane}} in a lab coat in charge of developing battle gear? Creator/YujiUeda [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 has done it before]].
* AdjustingYourGlasses: By the bridge. [[MundaneMadeAwesome Double the badass level when he performs this]] alongside Chairman Inumuta.
* BadassBoast: When [[spoiler:Aikuro]] asks if Shiro's able to mass produce Goku Uniforms all by himself, he confirms as much [[spoiler:before activating his Three-Star Uniform.]]
--> '''Shiro:''' "I'm all the help I need."
* {{Bishonen}}: To the point where he practically looks like a woman with his long, wavy hair and petite frame.
* TheBlacksmith: As the head of the sewing club in a world where clothing are weapons, he's basically this.
* CoolMask: Wears a translucent orange gas mask, presumably to protect himself from some dangerous particulate produced by Life Fibers.
* GadgeteerGenius: He is the one who designs and constructs the Goku Uniforms. Might share this position with Inumuta who specializes in gathering and analysis of battle data which are later used to improve the uniforms. Shiro was also the one who built the Vacuum Fist used by Gamagoori to [[spoiler:save the COVERS victims.]]
* GasMaskLongcoat: His overall look, his uniform length extends far beyond his height.
* IAmNotLeftHanded: It turns out [[spoiler: that his uniform is a Three-Star. The third star was hidden on his folded collar]].
* LargeHam: Not normally, but when he activates his uniform he doesn't say its name, he screams it on the top of his lungs.
* NonActionGuy: Despite being a Two-Star student, he is literally the only plot-relevant student yet to participate in combat.
* OddFriendship: Unlike the other club presidents, he speaks with the Elite Four on equal terms.
** Turns out this is because he's the nephew of Soroi, Satsuki's butler, [[spoiler:and he's also part of Satsuki's conspiracy to kill Ragyo and destroy REVOCS/COVERS]].
* PerpetualFrowner: Even more so [[UpToEleven than Satsuki]]. He never smiles and sports an expression of eternal annoyance at the world around him.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: His [[spoiler:Three-Star Uniform]] is decorated in these colours, although [[spoiler:by the time he shows it, he's already working with Nudist Beach.]]
* SixthRanger: While not part of Satsuki's Elite Four, he's still associated with them in the manufacture of Goku Uniforms [[spoiler:and is the only non-Elite Four student in on Satsuki's rebellion, as well as having the privilege of having a Three-Star Uniform.]]
* StoicSpectacles: He's a PerpetualFrowner who won't even smile when thanking someone for saving his life.
* ThemeNaming: The second character of his surname means "to knit", while the first character of his given name means "thread".

->"''To boxers, these gloves and trunks are our uniform!''"

->Voiced by: Creator/MitsuoIwata

The Boxing Club Captain. His Two-Star Goku Uniform gives his boxing gloves the strength of steel.
----
* BadassLongcoat: Worn alongside his boxing attire.
* BaldOfAwesome: His appearance beneath that helmet.
* BoxingBattler: His entire gimmick.
* CallingYourAttacks: Calls out his punches as if he were the ringside commentator of his own match.
-->'''Takaharu''': ''[[LargeHam TEK!]] [[MegatonPunch KEN!]] [[NoIndoorVoice FUN!]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis SAI!]]''
* CombatTentacles: His left glove launches a stream of punches so rapid that it essentially functions as this.
* CoolHelmet: Always wears protective headgear.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: His corkscrew punch attack makes his right hand glove spin. The effect is enough that it rips the cloak that Ryuko was wearing to cover up her uniform.
* ExtremityExtremist: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]; he's more than happy to use kicks in a fight.
* TheGlovesComeOff: When he's done playing around, he removes his right glove, revealing a huge slab of steel that resembles a meat tenderizer.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Accuses Ryuko of mocking boxing by wearing a {{Stripperiffic}} uniform to [[DistractedByTheSexy distract him in battle]]. His defending the sacrosanct spirit of the sport is soon revealed to be a complete bull when it turns out his boxing glove is there to hide his metal PowerFist.
* LargeHam: He gets a bit too excited when detailing the powers of his "''ATHLETICISM-AUGMENTING TWO-STAR GOKU UNIFORM!!!''"
* PintSizedPowerhouse: He's only slightly larger than Ryuko, yet he delivers a complete and utter smackdown on her.
* PowerFist: His Two-Star uniform gives him this power.
* PunnyName: In Japanese name order, "Fukuroda Takaharu" sounds similar to "''fukurodataki''", which means "to beat up by ganging up".
* SignatureMove: ''Tekken Funsai'' (lit. "Iron Fist Smash")
** MegatonPunch
* SpamAttack: His left jab launches a stream of steel boxing gloves at his opponent.
* TheWorfBarrage: His final attack against Ryuko is a full-power punch without his glove on... and it doesn't even scratch her.
* WouldHitAGirl: A particularly egregious case as the very first thing he does is deck Ryuko with a boxing glove twice the size as her entire body.

* MinidressOfPower: Her Goku Uniform, befitting a tennis player, and with a skirt made of balls no less.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Those shark teeth of hers sure do seem evocative of Viral from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''.
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: Her name sounds similar to the famous Japanese tennis star, Kimiko Date-Krumm.
* [[SadistTeacher Sadist Team Captain]]: Has the whole tennis team pelting Mako with tennis balls as punishment for not attending team practice. What's more is she knows Mako was being held hostage just to lure out Ryuko, but she still counts it against her because it was without her permission.

* CannonFodder: Jakuzure only sends Uwabami out to test Ryuko and Tsumugu.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Yaguruma tries to kill Tsumugu because he trampled his club's flower beds.
* {{Gonk}}: Both of them have huge noses and buckteeth.
* GreenThumb: By adding water to the flower pot on his back, Yaguruma can grow giant [[ManEatingPlant Man-Eating Plants]] in seconds. Uwabami can presumably do the same, [[WeHardlyKnewYe not that we get to see it]].
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Their weapons are watering pots.
* ManEatingPlant: Can grow these from the planter on their backs.
* MeaningfulName: The "kusa" character in both their names means "grass".
* RedBaron: "Squint-eyed" Kusatao; he's even listed in the credits as such.
* {{Revenge}}: Kusatao takes on Tsumugu to avenge Yaguruma.
* SinisterShades: Wears these.
* StealthClothes: Even though the handkerchiefs they wear on their heads can be commonly found amongst Japanese agricultural fashion to prevent sunburn and block excess sweat, it's hard not to notice them being insidious individuals.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Yaguruma's introduction and (presumed) death take place in the same scene. But that's nothing compared to Uwabami, who only gets one line and no fight scene before he's taken out.

During episode 7, Mako, along with Ryuko, starts a Fight Club in order to abuse Satsuki's policies, but the Mankanshokus end up [[RagsToRiches becoming ridiculously rich]], with Mako forgetting her initial objective in the process and [[CorruptTheCutie becoming engrossed in earning money for her family]]. Satsuki later gives Mako a powerful two-star Goku uniform in order to fight against Ryuko so she can maintain her family's new-found wealth.

-----
* BadassLongcoat: Her Two-Star Goku Uniform has one that is decorated with SpikesOfVillainy.
* BatterUp: Mako's weapon of choice for this particular episode is a wooden bat with golden nails in it.
* BlingBlingBang: All of Mako's weapons while wearing this uniform are accented with gold.
* CryCute: [[http://theglorioblog.files.wordpress.com/2013/11/vlcsnap-2013-11-14-15h00m20s245.png Look at her.]] [[InelegantBlubbering LOOK AT HER, DAMN IT!]]
** ManlyTears: An ultra-rare feminine example. She's still a passionate {{Badass}} who cries her heart out.
* ChainPain: She tosses Ryuko around the school courtyard with a long, gilded chain.
* CoatCape: Mako wears her BadassLongcoat as such.
* FlechetteStorm: Hurls a barrage of golden hand tools at Ryuko.
* JapaneseDelinquent: Her uniform is very [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Jotaro-esque]].
* LegacyCharacter: Of a sort; Ryuko hardly spends a minute with the title of Fight Club President before more or less shoving it onto Mako.
* MegatonPunch: She can use a brass knuckle to [[CraterPower punch a crater into the ground]], and in episode 22, [[spoiler:the uniform itself punches a {{Kaiju}}-sized COVERS upon its return.]]
* MonsterOfTheWeek: The title of Fight Club President, as well as its uniform, only appears in Episode 7, but is quite a twist for [[TemporarilyAVillain Mako]]. This goes out of the window once the uniform [[TheBusCameBack makes an awesome comeback]] in Episode 22.
* NiceHat: Her uniform comes with a captain's cap.
* OralFixation: Her uniform comes with a clover straw to chew on, which Mako does until she dumps the uniform.
* PowerFist: Wears a brass knuckle with the president's name emblazoned on it.
* RapidFireFisticuffs: One of the many attacks Mako unleashes on Ryuko.
* ShoutOut: The appearance and abilities of the Fight Club President's Goku uniform are a blatant reference to Jotaro's uniform from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', right down to the tuft of hair on the back of the hat.
* TheBusCameBack: The uniform inexplicably comes back in Episode 22, [[spoiler:as Mako wears it and faces off against a {{Kaiju}}-sized COVERS.]]

** BadassNormal: For a No-Star student, she can be awesome.
** HandicappedBadass: She does all this with her arm in a cast! Except the "handicapped" part is fake.
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: Hilariously subverted; she throws herself off a highly elevated rolling platform after setting off one last trap for Ryuko, claiming she'll at least die with her dignity as a member of the Disciplinary Committee intact, only to open a parachute at the last second.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Pretends to be a nice, modest girl to gain Ryuko's trust in order to steal Senketsu.
* CardCarryingVillain: Once she stops her nice-girl façade.
* CustomUniform: Subverted; despite being a club president, she's a No-Star like Mako.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: "[[EvilIsHammy CHIKARA-POWER!"]][[note]]"Chikara" already means "power", so she's basically saying "Power-Power"[[/note]]
* DidntSeeThatComing: Manages to put on Senketsu, but fails to realize that the only one he'll ever let him is Ryuko.
* EvilIsHammy: As soon as she reveals her true nature, she really cuts loose.
* EvilLaugh: She has a very distinct NoblewomansLaugh.
* FalseFriend: Acts as Ryuko's friend just so she can get her hands on Senketsu.
* KarmaHoudini: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted; once she thinks she's gotten away after setting one final trap for Ryuko, Gamagoori promptly and justly expels her from the academy.]]
* KickTheDog: Literally does this to Guts' face when he tries returning Senketsu to Ryuko.
* ManipulativeBitch: Her "injured schoolgirl" act has Ryuko and Mako totally fooled while she plots to steal Senketsu at the right moment.
* {{Meganekko}}: Of the [[ManipulativeBitch bitchy, manipulative variety.]]
* TheMillstone: On top of dragging Ryuko down, she accidentally pulls down her pants her whenever Mako's family (carrying Senketsu) catches up with her, causing them to crash while [[DistractedByTheSexy distracted]]. It later turns out this is intentional.
* MonsterOfTheWeek: For the one and only episode she appears in, she stirs quite a commotion, mainly because of her true identity.
* TheMole: Her job entails going undercover as an ordinary student and setting up traps based on their behavior.
* NoblewomansLaugh: [[EvilLaugh KYAHOHOHOHO!]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: It's the first tell-tale sign she's really no good.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: A staple of hers once she shows her true colors.

* ThemeNaming: "Mai" is a kind of linen robe.
* TrapMaster: Helped build an entire ''amusement park'' of traps throughout the city!
* TheUnchosenOne: Subverted when she puts on Senketsu and easily activates his power. However, just because she is shameless enough to master the skimpy power of Senketsu within seconds, that doesn't mean that Senketsu will let her use him for her personal gain.
* WoundedGazelleGambit: She fakes an arm injury to get Ryuko to take pity on her and help her.

* TheDeterminator: Even while held down and beaten to a pulp by a gang of brutish thugs, he fiercely refuses to stay down until he gets Ryuko's attention. It turns out it's because [[spoiler:[[ImplacableMan they couldn't really have hurt him anyway.]]]]
* DissonantSerenity: He becomes quite serene and creepy moments before revealing [[spoiler:his true identity.]]

!Nudist Beach
[[folder:General]]
A mysterious organization that directly opposes the Kiryuin family and their plans for WorldDomination.
----
* CastOfSnowflakes: Effort was clearly taken to ensure some variety in the heights, builds, and faces of the rank-and-file during their first crowd shot. This stands in deliberate contrast to Satsuki's One-Stars and Ragyo's middle-managers, whom all look like copies of the same three people no matter how many are on screen.
* CoolShip: The [[spoiler: ''Naked Sun'', Nudist Beach's flagship. It's a retractable aircraft carrier which also formed part of their Main/ElaborateUndergroundBase prior to be deployed in episode 20.]]
* ElaborateUndergroundBase: They have an underwater fortress in Osaka.
* FailOSuckyname: Almost everyone who hears it comments that it's ridiculous. Ryuko even thought Aikuro was joking [[MyGodYouAreSerious at first]].
** FridgeBrilliance: The man who founded the organization [[RomanticismVersusEnlightenment didn't have the best naming sense, not that he cares anyway.]]
* {{Fanservice}}: A whole organization dedicated to it no less. All men are handsome and buff, and the women are pretty and buxom, meanwhile their clothing, if it can even be called that, barely covers anything.
* FullFrontalAssault: They turn this trope into a philosophy. See also the HandOrObjectUnderwear entry for how Trigger [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar gets by with that.]]
* HandOrObjectUnderwear: The combat uniform of the Nudist Beach RedShirtArmy consists of semi-automatic handguns, tactical combat belts, stockings, and sleeves. ''Literally only those items'': they don't wear shirts, pants or underwear. The pistols are conveniently positioned to cover the naughty bits of each man and woman.
* LaResistance: They are known as the "Anti-Kiryuin" resistance.
* MeaningfulName: They are nudists who oppose those who use clothes for evil purposes.
* MiniMecha: Their primary weapons are mechanical two-legged suits.
* MysteriousBacker: They supply the Kansai schools with technology designed to fight the Kiryuins with funding from the late Isshin Matoi.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: Their nakedness hardly ever fails to get a bewildered expression from Ryuko.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Thanks to Tsumugu they seemed like a credible threat at first but by the mid-point of the series they became all but useless compared to monsters using 3 Star Uniforms, Kamuis or [[spoiler:being [[HalfHumanHybrid Life fiber hybrids]]]]
* WeakButSkilled: They are completely outmatched in terms of physical capabilities by people using Life Fibers so they have to fight skilfully and intelligently.

->"''At school, you and I are teacher and student. Don't make contact without making precautions. Of course, you're more than welcome to cross that line here.''"

->Voiced by: Creator/ShinichiroMiki

Appearing at first glance to be Ryuko's bumbling homeroom teacher, this mysterious man is an agent of Nudist Beach who has infiltrated the school to spy on Satsuki. Aikuro aids and protects Ryuko under the Student Council's radar, providing her with vital information on Senketsu and the Kiryuins, usually in the middle of an inexplicable strip tease.
----
* AceCustom: His [[MiniMecha Dotonb...]] [[InsistentTerminology er... DTR]] is notably different than the standard unit issued to Nudist Beach RedShirt/s; being bigger and having red leg wheels.
* ActorAllusion:
** When Ryuko [[spoiler:goes on a berserk rampage after Nui reveals herself as her father's killer]], he is tasked with [[spoiler:taking her down]] with a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 sniper]] [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic rifle]].
** He's also a goofy, dishevelled mentor figure that knows more than he's letting on, kinda like [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Kisuke Urahara]].
* AlmightyJanitor: Alongside No-Star students, teachers hold the absolute lowest rank in Honnouji Academy. This doesn't make his skill set any less impressive.
* AudibleGleam: Every time he "transforms". Aikuro's face is just that dazzling.
* BadassTeacher: He's managed to survive the hell hole that is Honnouji Academy until now. Also an effective acupuncturist and spy.
* BattleStrip: His clothes slide off when he ditches his teacher disguise and things [[LetsGetDangerous get dangerous]]. [[spoiler:He also pilots a MiniMecha with nothing but a utility belt covering his privates]].
* BeardnessProtectionProgram: Has a bit of PermaStubble as part of his disguise. It can apparently disappear at will.
* BeautifulAllAlong: Subverted in that he cleans up in the first episode, but then goes back to wearing his disguise, only to dramatically remind everyone he's a looker OnceAnEpisode.
* BerserkButton: The words "Dotonbori Robo" are guaranteed to turn Aikuro into a petulant child.
* {{Bishonen}}: As if it wasn't obvious enough, the "mi" in his surname literally means "beauty".
** BishieSparkle: To the extent that at one point a single sparkle takes up ''half the screen''.
* ClarkKenting: His disguise amounts to messy hair, a pair of aviator glasses, stubble, and bad posture. In episode 15 [[spoiler:it's subverted, as we learn his disguise never fooled Satsuki]].
* ClarkKentOutfit: Quite a bit more muscular than his clothing would suggest.
* CoolCar: His OneSceneWonder "Nude Shooting Star", which doubles as an AmphibiousAutomobile.
* DoubleEntendre: When speaking directly to Ryuko, he makes occasional comments that could also be misinterpreted as offers to make out or have sex.
** Considering how this has started spreading to other characters, it might just come naturally to him.
* EccentricMentor: Aikuro can be a bit ''strange'' sometimes.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Right at the start of episode 1, Aikuro actually [[NonchalantDodge evades the reinforced metal door Gamagoori kicks at him]], unlike his poor students. Later that same episode, he follows Ryuko home and drops her through a trapdoor, before taking off his disguise for the first time. It's an indication that he's neither who he seems nor someone to be messed with.
* FemaleGaze: Exaggerated during his strip routines. Episode 19 takes it to a whole 'nother level with extreme close-ups of his crotch every few minutes.
* FullFrontalAssault: Seeing as he's one of Nudist Beach's "Splendid Naked Officers", his choice of battle attire should come to no one's surprise.
* GodwinsLaw: Aikuro dedicates a suspicious amount of class time to history lessons on Nazi Germany.
* GratuitousEnglish. Is prone to bouts of this when he's not in his teacher disguise.
-->''LET'S SKINNY DIVING!''
* HandsomeLech: He is handsome, but when he's alone with Ryuko his actions and body language pretty much amount to constant sexual molestation.
* HotScientist: Used to conduct research on Life Fibers with Isshin. He even re-dons the lab coat (and ''only'' the lab coat) upon returning to Nudist Beach.
* HotTeacher: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]; he's not really a teacher, and he's only hot when he's not acting like one.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Played with. He's fully prepared to snipe [[spoiler:Berserk!Ryuko]] with an Anti-Kamui bullet, even when told there's no guarantee [[spoiler:she'd survive.]] [[DefiedTrope However]], Mako's effective CooldownHug on [[spoiler:a berserk Ryuko]] spares him from [[spoiler:potentially killing his own student.]]
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Can paralyze Tsumugu's trigger finger with an acupuncture needle from hundreds of yards away.
* InsistentTerminology: He absolutely hates the term Dotonbori Robo, so much so that he takes offense whenever his MiniMecha is called as such. He prefers the cooler sounding '''DTR'''.
* {{Leitmotif}}: If "犬Kあ3L" or "Suck your blood" start up when he's in the room, prepare for a strip tease.
-->''[[GratuitousEnglish You're so hot, good looking!]]''
* LensFlareCensor: His crotch and nipples tend to be obscured by patches of blinding pink light, lending otherwise serious scenes a bizarre bit of MoodDissonance.
* MrExposition: The only other people in the know about the uniforms are the Kiryuin family, and they're probably not going to open up to Ryuko any time soon, so...
* MrFanservice: [[ExaggeratedTrope Exaggerated]]. After he takes off his shades to reveal his good looks, he usually starts stripping and striking very erotic poses. Since resigning from the academy he's butt naked more often than not.
* MysteriousBacker: He secretly drops Ryuko through a trapdoor into the basement where she first finds Senketsu.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: When Ryuko is in his apartment. PlayedForLaughs.
* NoShirtLongJacket: How he goes about wearing lab coats.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: While at Honnouji Academy, he takes on the appearance and personality of a crusty old teacher who gives long, boring lessons. Even his real self spends much of his time with Ryuko stripping and acting seductive to the point that it's hard for her to take him seriously, all to keep her from asking too many questions.
* OneDegreeOfSeparation: He was a colleague of Ryuko's father, and now helps Ryuko at his request.
* OpaqueNerdGlasses: Part of his disguise, though they look more like tinted aviator shades than anything.
** TheGlassesComeOff: Every time he stops ObfuscatingStupidity and gets serious.
* TheParalyzer: He is very knowledgeable of {{Pressure Point}}s and, using acupuncture needles, is able to paralyze his targets.
* SexierAlterEgo: And requires merely a HairFlip and a GlassesPull to switch.
* SexyMentor: To Ryuko's consternation, his advice and stripping habit are unable to occur independently from each other. He's also perfectly willing to cross the teacher-student boundary in private.
** It's implied this was mostly an act, though, since his behaviour towards her becomes much less suggestive later on.
* ShamelessFanserviceGuy: While most Nudist Beach operatives treat nudity as protocol, Aikuro ''loves'' showing off, frequently posing erotically and removing his clothes for no reason.
* SurpriseCreepy: One that is unrelated to nudism, believe it or not. When he begins explaining [[spoiler:the truth behind Life Fibers]], he's suddenly framed in shadow while sporting an unsettling grin.
* TheTease: Really likes messing with Ryuko, since he knows she can't take a joke.
* TricksterMentor: Tries to play this card when Ryuko confronts him about Tsumugu attacking her but gets his bullshit instantly called. However, he does genuinely care about her.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: After reclaiming his rank as a "Splendid Naked Officer" in episode 14, Aikuro basically stops wearing clothes altogether.
* YouCanLeaveYourHatOn: Has unusual ways of offering advice or exposition, none of which involve keeping his clothes on. In later episodes his clothes gain the ability to ''remove themselves''.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: It's at its bluest when not in disguise.

->"''[[CatchPhrase Let me tell you two useful pieces of information.]]''"

->Voiced by: Creator/KatsuyukiKonishi

One of the members of Nudist Beach, a notorious anti-uniform guerilla who fights with an array of sewing themed weaponry. He considers Senketsu to be a bigger threat than the Honnouji administration.
----
* AbnormalAmmo[=/=]DepletedPhlebotinumShells[=/=]TrickBullet: His guns fire sewing needles made from a special alloy that can sever the connection between Life Fibers and the user.
** In episode 11, he gives Aikuro [[ChekhovsGun a bullet that is seemingly made out of Life Fibers.]]
* AceCustom: Like Mikisugi has a custom made DTR armed with [[MoreDakka Four Heavy Sewing Machineguns.]]
* AntiHero [[HeroAntagonist Antagonist]]: He opposes Satsuki's uniform-dominated world just as much as the other protagonists, but he hunts Ryuko and Senketsu instead because he thinks they pose a greater threat.
* AntiHero [[HeroAntagonist Antagonist]] [[VillainForgotToLevelGrind Forgot To Level Grind]]: In episode 12, he's considerably upset that he's hardly a match for Berserk!Ryuko and Nui Harime, and sets himself to train all over again.
* {{Badass}}: He beats Ryuko while she's wearing Senketsu at full strength.
** BackToBackBadasses: Later fights back-to-back with Ryuko in episode 15.
** BadassBiker: He's introduced riding a CoolBike.
** BadassNormal: Being a member of an anti-uniform organization, he has no Life Fibers to use for himself, yet his battle with Ryuko is mere child's play to him.
* BerserkButton: There are three things can drive this guy up the wall: the Kamui, being interrupted, and mentioning his sister Kinue post-mortem.
* BriefcaseBlaster: Carries a metal suitcase that contains an [[IKEAWeaponry disassembled]] SniperRifle.
* CatchPhrase: "Let me tell you two useful pieces of information..."
** MadLibsCatchPhrase: His advice always changes to fit the circumstances.
* ColdSniper: The guy never cracks a smile.
* CombatPragmatist: He will use guns, sniper rifles, grenades, mines, traps and remotely controlled rocket launchers to get the job done. Hell, he's the first one in the series to flat-out attack and disable Ryuko ''before'' she gets a chance to transform.
* TheComicallySerious: He can ask a teenage girl point blank to take her clothes off and then insist that he's not a pervert without a shred of irony. He also remains completely stone-faced in light of Mako's antics.
** Stretched to breaking point when he uses a custom DTR in Episode 20.
* CynicismCatalyst: The death of his sister Kinue, at least when it comes to all things Life Fiber-related.
* DelinquentHair: A [[MultiColoredHair red and black]] mohawk.
* FingerlessGloves: Wears these.
** ArmCannon[=/=]TrickedOutGloves: They can shoot giant seam rippers.
* GodzillaThreshold: He's this for Mikisugi, who calls for his presence when Senketsu starts evolving at an alarming rate.
* GunsAkimbo: Uses two sewing machine guns in episode 12.
* HealingShiv: His needles can paralyze and incapacitate anyone, though they also end up feeling better than ever before once they come to.
* ILetGwenStacyDie: [[CynicismCatalyst His sister]] believed in the [[ThePowerOfFriendship friendship]] between man and Kamui so earnestly that a Kamui took advantage of her and devoured her completely. This is the reason why he doesn't trust Kamui and wants all clothes with Life Fibers to be terminated.
* IOweYouMyLife: Aikuro saved him from a (not specified) life-threatening situation in the past, and will do anything to repay the favor. [[SubvertedTrope Except]] when the favor is "don't destroy the Kamui".
* MageKiller: He can render Goku Uniforms powerless thanks to his AntiMagic gun.
* NeverHurtAnInnocent: He shoots Mako with paralyzing needles to keep her out of his fight with Ryuko, then assures Ryuko that not only is Mako totally unharmed, but she'll be full of energy and rid of any diseases she may have had when she wakes up. Even Ryuko falls under this somewhat since he's targeting Senketsu and not her, but he's willing to make an exception when it becomes clear she won't be giving Senketsu up.
* NoNonsenseNemesis: Though the show maintains a high sense of slapstick and hijinks, Tsumugu is completely no-nonsense and one of the most dangerous foes Ryuko has encountered.
* OneManArmy: Single-handedly crushes three school clubs along with their leaders as well as Ryuko while armed with Senketsu.
* TheParalyzer: He is skilled in the use of acupuncture needles to paralyze targets. They are as dangerous as they are [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking therapeutic]].
* SleevesAreForWimps: The moment Tsumugu turned up to the gun show in that combat vest was the moment every viewer knew he meant '''business'''.
* SmokingIsCool: [[PreAssKickingOneLiner And he does it wherever he damn wants]].
* StealthPun: His WeaponOfChoice is a ''sewing machine gun''.
* StuffBlowingUp: His penchant for land mines and other trap-based explosives comes off as a bit excessive at times.
* ThemeNaming: "Tsumugu" is also the Japanese name of pongee, a soft thinly woven cloth. It can also be translated as "to spin yarn", which goes well with his sewing-related weaponry.
* ThisMeansWarpaint
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: Uses a lot of cotton reel-shaped grenades.
* TrapMaster: He's insanely efficient at setting traps, managing to wire an entire hallway with enough explosives to take off the top half of a building in a matter of seconds.
* UnusualEyebrows: They are thick and forked at the ends.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He's willing to go to great lengths to fight the proliferation of uniforms, but he's also determined to destroy Senketsu by any means necessary, even if it means taking Ryuko out with him.
* WouldHitAGirl: All bets are off once he kicks Ryuko in the gut and then pistol whips her for good measure.

->"''Please continue with the experiments.''"

A researcher who worked with Nudist Beach beside Aikuro and her brother Tsumugu. She [[WideEyedIdealist expressed an optimistic view]] towards the Kamui and hoped to usher in a [[ThePowerOfFriendship unity between people and clothing]].
----
* AlliterativeName: '''Ki'''nue '''Ki'''nagase.
* DeadLittleSister: For Tsumugu, her death is what [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope triggered his xenophobic tendencies against the Kamui.]]
* TheFaceless: The only glimpse of her that we get is in a flashback, and her face is almost completely shadowed.
* FamousLastWords: See the quote.
* PosthumousCharacter: Has been dead ''long'' before the series began, seeing as Isshin was present when she died.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Full-heartedly believed in this from what we know. Unfortunately this blew up in her face when a Kamui [[DeconstructedTrope exploited this]] and absorbed her completely due to her lack of will against it.
-->'''Aikuro:''' "People and clothing aren't enemies." Isn't that what Kinue said?
* RedHerring: A lot of fans speculated that she was Ryuko's mother due mainly to how Tsumugu mentioned the similarities between the two in their effort to befriend a Kamui, and the fact that Kinue's face was never fully revealed. The true identity of Ryuko's mother is later revealed in Episode 18.
* SatelliteCharacter: Is only mentioned whenever Tsumugu is around.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: Even as she died, Kinue kept her idealistic views.
* WalkingSpoiler: Knowing too much about her fate reveals the tragic aspect of Tsumugu's character.
* WideEyedIdealist: Believed, despite Liber Fibers clearly being destructive, that mankind and clothing could find a way to live together in peace.
* YouWillBeAssimilated: Kinue was [[CruelandUnusualDeath absorbed wholly into a Kamui after it overpowered her.]]

->Voiced by: Creator/KinryuuArimoto

Ryuko's late father, a scientist who researched the mysteries of Life Fibers and the Kamui. He was recently murdered by a mysterious woman with his own invention, the Rending Scissors, half of which he entrusted to Ryuko before his death.
----
* TheAtoner: There are some very strong hints suggesting that most of the things he did, like making Senketsu or Scissor Blades, was to protect Ryuko and [[spoiler:atone for what he has done to her [[GuineaPigFamily when she was a baby.]]]]
* BadassGrandpa: Just because he was killed, that doesn't mean he went down without a fight. Subverted when it's revealed that [[spoiler:he only looks old because he altered his appearance.]]
** Scientists peak in their sixties, you know!
* BatmanGambit: Nui was sent by Satsuki to retrieve whatever he was working on and bring it back to the Kiryuins. By showing her the Rending Scissors and boldly touting them as his "life's work", Isshin managed to mislead her and prevent her from finding Senketsu, the Kamui he was developing, until it was too late.
* DeathByOriginStory: His death is what sets Ryuko off on her journey.
* DefectorFromDecadence: Used to serve Ragyo until he found out about the [[spoiler:secret of the Life Fibers]], escaped and founded [[LaResistance Nudist Beach.]]
* DefiantToTheEnd: After Nui stabbed him repeatedly with his own Rending Scissors, Isshin pulled out one of its blades and gave her a taste of her own medicine.
* {{Determinator}}: Especially considering that his opponent was [[spoiler:Nui]] of all people, Isshin took a lot of damage and still refused to die before Ryuko got there. He would have lasted longer if it weren't for the fire.
* DirtyOldMan: Subverted; Aikuro jokingly suggests Ryuko should chalk up Senketsu's design to her dad's tastes before admitting that he has absolutely no idea why it looks that way.
** Fridge Brilliance comes into play because [[RomanticismVersusEnlightenment he wouldn't give a damn about how it looks, as long as it does its job well.]]
** Also, he founded Nudist Beach, so that might have double-subverted this.
* EyepatchOfPower: Averted, since it really serves no purpose whatsoever except to make him look more eccentric.
* TheFaceless: Up until episode 8, his face is always obscured in some way in {{Flashback}}s and the damaged family photo.
* GiverOfLameNames: When Nui hears that he named his invention the "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Rending Scissors]]", she notes that he has a terrible naming sense. [[spoiler: This turns out to be {{Foreshadowing}}; he gave his daughter a name that could be translated as "abandoned child".]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: He was killed with the very same weapon he created. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Nui Harime:
-->"''How does it feel to have your life taken by the very research you dedicated your life to?''"
* IKnowKungFu: For an elderly scientist, he sure performs effective flying kicks.
* IWasQuiteALooker: He's an old hunchback now, but he was quite attractive in the past [[spoiler:as Soichiro Kiryuin]].
* MadScientist: Not necessarily in personality, but Isshin's appearance fit this trope so well that it was probably what he was going for.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Isshin spends so much time working on his research that he ends up being estranged from his daughter Ryuko, who ends up becoming a delinquent who barely knew her father. Combined with the fact that he never told her what exactly was going on until it was too late makes it easy for multiple people to manipulate her, culminating in [[spoiler:Ragyo brainwashing her by using images of a happy childhood with her mother to break her psyche]].
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: His design appears to be a deliberate throwback to 1970s anime.
* PapaWolf: He managed to drive Nui away right after he heard Ryuko approach, sparing his daughter's life.
* ParentalAbandonment: A less extreme case than usual; when Ryuko was still young, Isshin sent her to a boarding school and they didn't meet for the next couple of years. He seemed [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies to have his reasons, though.]]
* ParentalNeglect: According to Ryuko, Isshin focused much more on his research than on raising her.
* PlotTriggeringDeath: His murder is what starts Ryuko's quest for revenge.
* PosthumousCharacter: All that we know about him, including how he died, are gleaned from various characters' flashback.
* ReedRichardsIsUseless: {{Averted|Trope}}. He used his patents to fund Nudist Beach.
* RomanticismVersusEnlightenment: The Enlightened to Nui's Romanticism. He doesn't care about aesthetics, like giving a good name for his Rending Scissors, so long as the product of his efforts works well.
* ShearMenace: The creator of the Rending Scissors, which he first wielded against his killer to impressive effect.
** BifurcatedWeapon: They split into the two Scissor Blades wielded by Ryuko and his killer.
* TakeUpMySword: Literally pulls the red Scissor Blade out of his guts and gives it to Ryuko in the episode 8 flashback.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: A rather literal example. The mouse that is seen sitting on his shoulder in flashbacks, which had been included in a description of him by Senketsu, basically disappeared after a brief appearance.
* WizardBeard: Although he's not so much a wizard but a dedicated scientist instead.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: [[spoiler:Isshin simply changed his appearance to that of an old man.]]

The ruthless and smug Student Council President of Naniwa Kinman High School and his family's conglomerate. His Takarada Bucks have greater value in Osaka than the national currency. With unlimited resources at his disposal, he's paid every single resident of Osaka to become his private army.

His family controls half of Japan, while the other half belongs to the Kiryuins.
----
* AceCustom: His golden crab DTR, which carries an assortment of weaponry, such as gourd missiles and sticky paste.
* AbnormalAmmo: His {{Mooks}} use guns that fire ''money''.
* ArtShift: Gets [[http://i222.photobucket.com/albums/dd253/Senbonzakura_976/KilllaKill-20-Large19.jpg a more realistic portrait]] when [[spoiler:saluting the departure of Nudist Beach's battleship.]]
* AssShove: Sanageyama beats him by [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything thrusting his sword up his rear multiple times]].
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Despite his ridiculous looks, his shrewd tactics give Sanageyama's forces an even harder time than the other elites.
* BlingBlingBang: His PowerArmor, on top of being [[BlingOfWar golden]], can fire gourd-shaped missiles made of gold!
* CallingYourAttacks: "[[MacrossMissileMassacre Sennari Gourd Missile Shower!]]"
* CoolSword: Another weapon what he gives to his {{Mooks}} are swords whose blades are made out of ''money.''
* DefiantToTheEnd: Despite being defeated, anally violated and visibly terrified for his life, he continues to shit-talk Satsuki while pinned on the ground with a sword in his face, even when restrained and faced with the wrath of Satsuki and her Elite Four.
* FictionFiveHundred: His family's conglomerate is so wealthy that his own money is treated as more valuable than the Japanese yen itself; in addition, he can cheerfully literally throw money at Osaka to turn the city's residents into his personal army, and even happily pays for any rebuilding that needs to be done afterwards.
* GiantEnemyCrab: When fighting Sanageyama, he wears a [[BlingOfWar golden]] PowerArmor that looks like a crab. It's surprisingly effective against Goku Uniforms, albeit not against a Three-Star. It even has a [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything weak point in the back!]]
* GoldTooth: Wears a grill on his front teeth that reads "ZENI" (meaning "money").
* TheIdiotFromOsaka: Averted; he may live in Osaka and fit the stereotype of a greedy son of a bitch, but he's also a tactical mastermind who gives Honnouji Academy's forces [[JustForPun a run for their money]].
* InkSuitActor: Mako's seiyuu, Aya Suzaki, mentioned on the radio show that she was shocked when she met Makoto Awane because his face so closely resembles Takarada's.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: His greedy image belies the fact that he [[spoiler:whole-heartedly backs up Nudist Beach's plan to stop Ragyo's AssimilationPlot.]]
* KansaiRegionalAccent: Down to using ''wate'' for himself, the Kansai version of ''[[JapanesePronouns watashi]]''.
* MeaningfulName: "''Takara''" means "treasure", and "''kane''" means "money".
* MoneyFetish: He has taken Osaka's history as a merchant town to such heart that everything from his battle tactics to his grill involves money in some shape or form.
* MysteriousBenefactor: To Nudist Beach, which shares the Takarada Conglomerate's anti-Kiryuin goals, albeit for different reasons. [[spoiler:Taken to the next level in episode 20, in which he reveals that the defeated Takaradas have poured every last zeni of their remaining resources into building Nudist Beach's battleship.]]
* PragmaticVillain: He's not above using ordinary folk ([[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney or as he calls them, combat citizens blinded by money]]) as part of his forces to make sure Sanageyama and his forces are outnumbered. He's even willing to let Osaka be destroyed, confident that he can pay people to rebuild the entire city.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: Unlike the other schools that rely on their strength or guile alone, Takarada rules Osaka by using supply and demand to win everyone's favor. Even if Osaka is destroyed in the raid, Takarada is confident that he can pay everyone in town to rebuild it.
* StudentCouncilPresident: Of his own school.
* VillainousValour: His army routs, leaving Takarada alone against not just Sanageyama but all Elite Four and Satsuki herself. He admits to being frightened, but refuses to surrender and fights on by himself, hopeless though it is.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: To the point where it's tough to call him a villain at all - he'll use human wave tactics, expend vast amounts of resources, and even ''burn down his own city''... but since it keeps the Osakan economy running and its citizens paid, everyone's totally OK with it.
** Especially so since he was only defending his school and city against an (apparently) unprovoked attack
* WingdingEyes: His eyes sometimes switch to a [[MoneyFetish yen symbol]].

A massive multi-national conglomerate owned by the Kiryuin family, with access to immense resources and power. Of the corporations that are part of the conglomerate, the REVOCS Corporation, which controls 90% of the world's apparel market at the start of the show, seems to be the most important, with Ragyo making her office at the REVOCS tower.
----
* BigScrewedUpFamily: Every known member of the Kiryuin bloodline [[spoiler:has has had at least one other member try to kill them]], and that's just the tip of the iceberg.
* {{Fiction 500}}: At the start of the show, the conglomerate basically owns 90% of the world's apparel market with their flagship company REVOCS Corporation. Their wealth is so vast that Satsuki can basically turn a beggar into a millionaire with a snap of her fingers, as long as she feels they earned it.
* MegaCorp: They have near-monopoly on the clothes market not just in Japan but the entire world. They must have branch offices and daughter companies in pretty much every country in the world.
* NGOSuperpower: Between their financial power stemming from near complete control of clothes market and access to Life Fiber clothing they are probably one of the most powerful organizations on the planet. Its quite possible that they are more powerful than most governments. Honnouji, for example, is a PrivatelyOwnedSociety.
* SdrawkcabName[=/=]SignificantAnagram: The REVOC part of the name is "cover" spelled backwards. Ragyo openly preaches to her employees that clothing is the [[Literature/BookOfGenesis evidence of man's original sin by consuming the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, thus learning shame of nakedness and free will.]] By having near unprecedented control of the manufacture of clothing, REVOCS practically holds hostage a basic need that prevents that shame and protection from the elements.

->"[[CatchPhrase La vie est drôle]]... ''Life is indeed amusing''."

->Voiced by: Creator/RomiPark

Satsuki's mother, CEO of REVOCS, leader of the Kiryuin Conglomerate, and the head of Honnouji Academy's board of directors.

Her role is fairly minor in the first half of the series until her formal introduction in Episode 12, from then more about her is revealed. She plans on enslaving the human race to Life Fibers, and has been using REVOCS for this very reason.

'''Spoilers below, you've been warned.''' [[labelnote:*]][[RedundancyDepartmentOfRedundancy Yes, we're aware of the general spoiler warning above.]] [[WalkingSpoiler This is a double-warning.]][[/labelnote]]
----
* EightiesHair: During flashbacks, when [[spoiler:experimenting on her daughters.]]
* AbsoluteCleavage: Her favorite outfits sport this.
* AbusiveParents: It was rather subtle at first, but Episode 18 proved that, without a doubt, Ragyo is a ''horrible'' parent. [[CurbstompBattle She beats the hell out]] of [[spoiler:Satsuki]] after the latter tried to rebel against her, and [[spoiler: even rips off her clothing, subsequently disposing of her like trash.]] She also experimented on her unnamed second daughter and casually threw her away when she died during said experiments. [[spoiler: By the end of Episode 18, it turns out the second daughter survived as well.]]
* AlmightyMom: And that's putting it ''lightly''. Even without a Kamui she can easily beat the living shit out of [[spoiler: Satsuki]].
* [[ArchnemesisDad Archnemesis Mom]]: [[spoiler:Considering that Ryuko and Satsuki, her daughter are trying to stop her plans of world domination.]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Ragyo is not only the CEO of REVOCS, she's easily the most powerful character shown thus far in combat.
* {{Badass}}: Firmly establishes herself as this when she lays the most violent smackdown in the entire series on [[spoiler: Satsuki]].
* BarehandedBladeBlock: Her bare fist is sufficient to stop [[spoiler:and break]] a sword as sharp as the Bakuzan.
* BatmanGambit: It is implied that she wants Nui to anger Satsuki so she can witness the full extent of Junketsu's power, so she lets her top designer do what she pleases.
* BiggerBad: In the first half of the series, she has more of a background presence as she observes the conflict between Ryuko and Satsuki. She controls two of the world's most powerful organizations, is the reason why Satsuki is Honnouji Academy's StudentCouncilPresident, and indirectly responsible for [[spoiler: the death of Isshin Matoi.]] She does take reigns as primary BigBad [[spoiler:once Satsuki's true intentions are revealed.]]
* BigOlEyebrows: We know which side of the family Satsuki got her eyebrows from.
* ContraltoOfDanger: Ragyo along with Satsuki have noticeably prominent deep voices compared to the rest of the women in the cast, especially when it comes to exercising their authority over others, although they have their share of action as well.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: The head of REVOCS, the world's largest apparel corporation, as well as the conglomerate in general.
* CurbstompBattle: Delivers a crushing one to [[spoiler:Satsuki]] in episode 18, further cementing the dominance she has over [[spoiler:her daughter. She even does this with her bare hands, without either a Kamui or a Goku Uniform, while Satuski was wearing Junketsu.]]
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: The inner rings of her eyes match her hair color, natch.
* {{Dark|ActionGirl}} ActionMom: If Episode 18 is of any indication, she can and ''will'' kick some serious ass. Just ask [[spoiler: Satsuki.]]
* DepravedBisexual: If her behavior towards [[ParentalIncest her daughters is of any indication.]]
* DidntSeeThatComing: Inverted, she was pretty confident that Ryuko wouldn't be able to [[spoiler:break out of her mind control.]] But when she did, Ragyo was very pleasantly surprised because it made her realize that [[spoiler:Ryuko is actually her daughter whom she thought was dead.]]
* TheDogBitesBack: In episode 17, [[spoiler:delivered by none other than Satsuki, as revenge for [[DisappearedDad Soichiro]]'s death.]]
* EvilAlbino: Her reddish eyes, silk-white skin and mostly-silver hair give off this effect.
* EvilIsHammy: On top of being the BigBad, she's one of the most bombastic characters in the series, to the point where she doesn't even ''need'' to be physically on-screen to outham everyone else.
** One of the earliest examples consists of her making a very grandiose speech about REVOCS' motto, without showing herself to her audience until the speech's very end.
** Next up is when a [[spoiler:COVERS]] projection of her reduces the Elite Four into silence as [[spoiler: Ira tries to interrupt her badmouthing on a captured Satsuki.]]
* EvilLaugh: Has a ''very creepy'' one during episode 18, before [[PeoplePuppets assuming control of ''all'' Honnouji Students to use as her pawns.]]
** NoblewomansLaugh: Given her status as the director of this world's largest corporation, she dishes them out without fail when hamming it up.
* EvilMatriarch: She fills this role for Satsuki [[spoiler:and Ryuko.]]
* EvilOverlord: She's even more powerful than her daughter, since she runs the most powerful conglomerate in the world that controls Honnouji Academy.
* EvilutionaryBiologist: Episode 18 reveals that she performed brutal experiments on [[spoiler:her daughters]] with a twisted goal of infusing life fibers within human bodies. When [[spoiler:Ryuko]] supposedly dies from the experiments, she casually dumps her as a failed test subject.
* ExcessiveEvilEyeshadow: The only character who always wears noticeable makeup, and just happens to be the evillest.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: While not easily noticeable, her eyes are ringed and multi-colored.
* TheFaceless: Until episode 11.
* FeatherMotif: Her hair bares semblance to a bird's wings.
* GratuitousFrench: "''La vie est drôle.''" ("Life is funny.")
* HalfHumanHybrid: The reason for her superhuman abilities is that her body is interwoven with life fibers.
* HolyBacklight: A rainbow-colored one.
* ImpossibleHourglassFigure: Her appearance in Episode 13 really accentuates it.
* InTheBack: [[spoiler:Satsuki]] runs her through in Episode 17 while she is distracted by Ryuko.
* InTheBlood: Satsuki apparently takes after her a lot, from having their own HolyBacklight, to their habit of delivering EvilOverlord speeches. [[spoiler: Her younger daughter, Ryuko, also inherits the highlights in her hair.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: In fact, she all but outright rejects such a concept.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Blumenkranz"[[note]]German for "Floral Wreath" or "Floral Crown"[[/note]], a soaring, powerful song, at times eerily soft; with [[OminousLatinChanting Ominous German Chanting]] and lyrics calling the world cruel, and asking why the listener would cry over the singer throwing away dead flowers. [[spoiler:Which probably has something to do with Ragyo abandoning Ryuko as an infant]].
* LesCollaborateurs: Is ultimately a servant of COVERS, the will of [[spoiler:the Primordial Life Fiber.]]
* LightIsNotGood: She emits her own HolyBacklight (in fact she one-ups Satsuki with a rainbow one). She's also the BigBad.
* LukeIAmYourFather: Or rather, [[spoiler:Ryuko, I Am Your Mother]].
* ManipulativeBitch: In episode 20, she taunts Ryuko to come to Honnouji Academy and fulfil her desire for revenge against her and Nui, [[BatmanGambit confident she will do just that.]] [[spoiler: This was so she can capture her to be brainwashed, which she succeeds.]]
* MonsterClown: She presents herself as this in episode 17. Either that or she's channelling [[Videogame/FinalFantasyVI Kefka]] or [[Videogame/FinalFantasyVIII Ultimecia]].
* MulticoloredHair: Ragyo's hair has a rainbow spectrum highlighting her white hair.
* NighInvulnerable: Her connection with [[spoiler:the Primordial Life Fiber]] allows her to survive practically ''anything'', from getting impaled InTheBack by [[spoiler:Satsuki]] to [[spoiler:a full-on ''decapitation'']].
** HealingFactor: Her bond with the Life Fibers has some benefits. Namely, any wounds dealt to her will very quickly close and [[spoiler:as long as a single Life Fiber connects her head to her body, she can survive anything.]]
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Ragyo delivers an absolutely ''brutal'' one to [[spoiler:Satsuki]]. This is especially jarring, given that [[spoiler:the latter]] never lost a single fight until Episode 18.
* NonActionBigBad: [[OrcusOnHisThrone Her first full appearances only has her telling Satsuki to continue on her conquest of Japan in order to further their plans of world domination,]] [[SubvertedTrope at least until]] Satsuki [[spoiler:[[InTheBack runs Bakuzan through her]].]] Not only does she [[spoiler:survive this unexpected betrayal]], but she goes on to [[spoiler:[[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beat Satsuki within an inch of her life]].]]
* NonchalantDodge: She barely moved her head a bit to dodge a missile shot at her.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Ragyo isn't afraid to touch her daughter in a rather intimate manner while she compliments her wearing Junketsu, or when bathing her in herbs to enhance her connection with Kamui.
* OminousLatinChanting: "Blumenkranz", sung in German, roughly transcribed and translated:
-->"''Diese Welt ist grausam, es ist traurig aber wahr.''"
-->"''This world is cruel, it's sad but true.''"
* OrcusOnHisThrone: She doesn't meddle in her daughter's affairs regarding Ryuko and taking over Japan, essentially letting her do what she pleases and only providing her with indirect support via the materials needed to construct Goku Uniforms or military equipment. Her reason for doing so is because she believes youth should settle their own affairs.
* ParentalIncest: Her behavior towards Satsuki is certainly suggestive of it, starting in episode 16 when she bathes her daughter with her bare hands in a less-than-motherly manner. It gets a ''lot'' worse after that. [[spoiler: During her fight with Satsuki, she separates Satsuki from Junketsu by ''stroking her crotch.'' Later, we see she has hung Satsuki in a cage by her arms, naked. As Ragyo taunts her defeated daughter, she runs her hands up and down Satsuki's back and between her legs then slaps her ass repeatedly.]]
** In episode 21 she [[spoiler:has what looks like a threesome with Nui and Ryuko]], complete with plenty of groping.
* PeoplePuppets: She can use Life Fibers to brainwash other people into becoming mindless soldiers for her, a process she calls Mental Refitting. [[spoiler:Ryuko managing to [[FightingFromTheInside shake off the Refitting]] is what clues Ragyo in to her identity.]]
* PowerGlows: Her radiance is so bright that her personal assistant needs sunglasses to look at her.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives Satsuki one [[spoiler: [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown in the middle of beating her senseless.]]]]
--> '''Ragyo''': Wearing Junketsu in this battle was a terrible mistake, but of course, [[spoiler:you wouldn't even be able to stand before me if not for its power!]]
* TheReveal: [[WhamEpisode Episode 18]] hands out a big one: [[spoiler:she is Ryuko's birth mother, making Ryuko and Satsuki sisters.]]
* ScarsAreForever: She has scars on her back that look like Goku Uniform stars.
* SinisterShades: Wore a pair when she was younger.
* SlasherSmile: Her icy façade is just that. When the action gets going, Ragyo shows how much she enjoys hurting people with a sadistic grin.
* TheSociopath: She does not give a damn about human life--not even her own next of kin--beyond the prospect of having a means to her own ends.
* StatuesqueStunner: Even taller than Satsuki.
* SuperStrength: She is able to inflict serious damage on [[spoiler:[[LightningBruiser Satsuki, even wearing Junketsu,]]]] with nothing but her '''bare fists'''. And this is without wearing a Kamui or a Goku Uniform.
* ThemeNaming: The "ra" in her name means "gauze", a type of thin silk.
* TranshumanTreachery: Her family has been protecting the Primordial Life Fiber and became powerful because of it. She sold off humanity to be consumed by them.
* [[TheManBehindTheMan The Woman Behind the Woman]]: Her being one of the directors of the school is one of the reasons why Satsuki is able to have her AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil.
* UnlimitedWardrobe: She has an impressive array of white clothing that appear to be sentient.
* WalkingSpoiler: Once she takes the center stage in the second part of the series, bombshell after bombshell after bombshell followed suit.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: She can sacrifice the lives of countless innocents and feel perfectly content. Ragyo ultimately serves as an adversary to both Ryuko and Satsuki, cementing her as a major antagonist.
* WomanInWhite: Owns hundreds of stylish outfits, all-pristine white, and fits perfectly in the sinister connotations of the trope.
* WouldHarmAChild: She coolly discards [[spoiler:her ''newborn daughter'']] the moment she finds out that the experiments aren't going as planned.

[[folder:Junketsu]]
!!Junketsu
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/junketsu_8461.png
The Kamui Soichiro presented to Satsuki when she was a little girl. Satsuki retrieved it from its confinement to test it against Ryuko.
----

* AmbiguousGender: Assuming all Kamui have an assigned gender, Junketsu's is still unknown (since it has yet to speak).
* AxCrazy: Is far more violent and savage than Senketsu, even attempting to kill Satsuki when she first put it on.
* BlackEyesOfCrazy: Its sclera turn black when it bonds to Satsuki. It's more accentuated [[spoiler:with Ragyo and later Ryuko, though.]]
* BlingOfWar: Junketsu looks less like a SailorFuku and more like a full-blown military uniform laced with gold silk brocade. Soichiro even called it her "wedding dress".
* BloodLust: Like all Kamui, it feeds off its host's blood.
* ChainmailBikini: Leaves most of Satsuki's body exposed, but grants her inhuman durability nevertheless.
* DeathCryEcho: Lets out a faint, echoing scream once [[spoiler:Ryuko breaks free from its control by ripping it off to shred, although it survives and is sewed back together, along with some of Ryuko's blood and Senketsu's Life Fibers.]]
* EvilCounterpart: To Senketsu, first being worn by Ryuko's rival, Satsuki.
* HeelFaceTurn: Of a sort: it becomes more tame and synchronizes with Satsuki [[spoiler:after being injected with a mix of Ryuko and Satsuki's blood and Senketsu's Life Fibers.]]
* GrapplingHookPistol: One of Junketsu's shoulder fins can be fired to this effect.
* JetPack: Junketsu Senpu, [[spoiler:learned by Satsuki during her brief time with Senketsu.]]
* LeotardOfPower: When [[spoiler:Ryuko]] wore it.
* LotusEaterMachine: Junketsu had been altered by Nui to be one to brainwash [[spoiler:Ryuko]].
* PowerAtAPrice: Like Senketsu, Junketsu requires her blood to activate. ''Unlike'' Senketsu, it's actively trying to consume her and is putting an enormous strain on her body.
* PrettyButterflies: Junketsu resembles a butterfly when [[spoiler:Ragyo]] puts it on.
* PuppeteerParasite: Influences [[spoiler:Ryuko]] while she's wearing it, making her more bloodthirsty and vicious.
* PureIsNotGood: Even its name means pure, but good it is not.
* SealedEvilInACan: Was locked away by Ragyo until Satsuki awoke it.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Its transformed form covers even less skin than Senketsu does. [[spoiler:Averted when bonded to Ryuko, where it covers significantly more skin.]]
* SymbioticPossession: Has this dynamic with Satsuki due to her dominating its bloodlust with her will.
* VerticalMechaFins: A rare non-mecha example when Satsuki activates it.
* TheVoiceless: Unlike Senketsu, Junketsu never speaks or otherwise vocalises. [[spoiler:Until Ryuko rips it off from herself, then you can hear a faint scream coming from it.]]

[[folder:Nui Harime]]
!!Nui Harime
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nunu_3233.png
->"''Gosh, everyone seems to be having so much fun!''"

->Voiced by: Creator/YukariTamura

The Grand Couturier of the REVOCS Corporation, dispatched by Ragyo herself to shake things up at Honnouji Academy. Initially dismissing her for her adorable appearance and childish mannerisms, Ryuko quickly discovers this mysterious girl has a much darker secret than she could have ever imagined...

[[WalkingSpoiler Just like Ragyo]], '''spoilers below.'''

----
* ActionFashionista: She's Grand Couturier of REVOCS, and can also take on a fully powered Kamui user like Ryuko.
* ActorAllusion: She's voiced by Creator/YukariTamura, who also voiced MagicalGirl [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Nanoha Takamachi]]. Why is this an example, you ask? When she pulls out the other half of Ryuko's scissor blade, she twirls and spins it around the same way a MagicalGirl would.
** In episode 20 she says she understands how Ryuko is thinking, similar to how Nanoha does with her opponents. Her intentions certainly weren't as benevolent as Nanoha's, though.
** She also [[{{Bokukko}} uses the masculine pronoun]] ''[[UsefulNotes/JapanesePronouns boku]]'' despite her cute and feminine demeanor, rather like [[VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry Rika Furude]] does, and she also hides a cruel, manipulative nature, like [[VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry Bernkastel]].
* AmbiguouslyGay: She's rather touchy-feely with Ryuko and Satsuki. Considering that she's a super-[[AlwaysCamp fashion designer]]... by the end of episode 21 she's not really ambiguous anymore after [[spoiler:having a threesome with Ragyo and Ryuko]]. Then she is shown to [[spoiler:really enjoy a kiss from Ryuko]], after which she mentions that [[spoiler:Ryuko is a better kisser than Ragyo.]]
* ArchEnemy: The fact that she [[spoiler:killed Ryuko's dad]] makes her Ryuko's most hated nemesis.
* AnArmAndALeg: Ryuko cuts off [[spoiler:her arms]] in Episode 22, and then Senketsu [[spoiler:absorbs them]].
%%* ArmlessBiped: How she operates after said AnArmAndLeg moment, even continuing to sew [[spoiler:Shinra Kouketsu]] with ''her own mouth''.
* ArtificialHuman: Was somehow created by [[spoiler:Ragyo]] using the [[spoiler:Primordial Life Fiber]] as an artificial womb.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: It only takes her ''one glance'' to tell where a Goku Uniform's Banshi is. The kicker, it's a transformed three-star Goku Uniform. It also takes her only '''[[FingerpokeOfDoom one pinky]]''' [[CurbStompBattle to rip it to shreds.]] She even does this with Senketsu, but fails because unlike a Goku Uniform, Senketsu (and possibly Kamui in general) was [[CrazyPrepared created with multiple Banshi.]]
** In episode 20, she manages to place ''a lot'' of tacking needles in specific points of Ryuko's body in the middle of their battle. [[spoiler: These tacking needles set the way for Ryuko's union with Junketsu as well as Ragyo's brainwashing.]]
* AxCrazy: Nui almost never loses her childish smile, but is a remorseless murderer. [[spoiler: Until Episode 22 that is, when she goes off the deep end when she loses her arms.]]
* {{Badass}}: She doesn't rely on Goku Uniforms, yet totally dumbfounds the Elite Four with her ability to crush a Three-Star uniform with ''just her pinky'', and nonchalantly repels just about every attack thrown at her, even Ryuko's powered-up mode.
* BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad: As close as possible to it-- fair is foul and foul is fair.
* BaitAndSwitchBoss: After she defeats Sanageyama, Nui offers to fight Ryuko in his place, which Satsuki accepts.
* BatmanGambit: When Ryuko falls into a HeroicBSOD and refuses to wear Senketsu again, Nui takes advantage of Ryuko's latent desire to protect the helpless by disguising herself as a foolhardy yet determined student who gets in trouble with the Student Council, renewing her will to fight so they can resume their battle. Nui herself [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this:
-->'''Nui''': Your reactions are so predictable that it's downright adorable!
* BeatStillMyHeart: Inflicts one on ''herself'' after [[spoiler:Ryuko stabs her in the chest,]] only to reveal [[spoiler:she is also a human who's interwoven with Life Fibers since her birth.]]
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Unlike other characters, she never seems to get any dirt or mess on her face and clothes despite things like being caught in an explosion. It's averted once, when she loses her eye to [[spoiler:Isshin Matoi.]]
** DoubleSubverted and {{Exaggerated}} in episode 20 when she fights Ryuko. When she gets stabbed, she coughs up BloodFromTheMouth but soon after [[spoiler:reveals herself as a Life Fiber hybrid]], and not only does her wound and the tear in her dress close, but ''all the blood she lost gets sucked back into her body'' and leaves her clean as a whistle.
** Averted like all hell in Episode 22, when [[spoiler:Ryuko uses both the scissor blades to cut off her arms and they can't regenerate.]]
* BlessedWithSuck: The Life Fibers [[spoiler:within her body]] grant her unparalleled resistance over [[spoiler:other Life Fibers,]] but at the same time make her unable to [[spoiler:wear a Kamui like Senketsu or Junketsu.]]
* BlondesAreEvil: Has strawberry blonde hair. Fittingly enough, she's one of the most evil characters in the series, right behind [[WhiteHairBlackHeart Ragyo]].
* {{Bokukko}}: She uses the masculine pronoun ''[[UsefulNotes/JapanesePronouns boku]]'' despite her incredibly girly behavior and appearance. Naturally, no one suspects anything when she refers to herself as ''boku'' while [[spoiler:disguised as a male student.]]
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: A peculiarly crasser example than most, she doesn't remember defeating and humiliating Sanageyama when he challenges her because, according to her, "when a woman changes her underwear, she puts the past behind her."
* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: Rei Hououmaru spirits her away in a chopper after [[spoiler:Ryuko lops off her two arms,]] but she's clearly not happy with it, even lashing out at Ragyo's secretary until the latter reminds her [[spoiler:she still has to complete Shinra Kouketsu.]]
* ContraltoOfDanger: Inverted. She has a high-pitched and cute-sounding voice, which ends up being played for danger, and fear instead by contrasting her voice with Satsuki's. She's also highly competent in battle despite not having ClothesMakeTheSuperman applied to her like other characters.
* CreepyChild: A teenage girl who appears cute and childish on the surface, but is actually extremely murderous and more intelligent than she lets on.
* CuteAndPsycho: [[Pantheon/{{PersonalAppearance}} The pantheon goddess of it.]] She never lets up that playful and carefree attitude, even as she proclaims she was responsible for [[spoiler:killing Ryuko's father]]. She didn't even change her tune while she sunk the Rending Scissors into him in a flashback.
** CuteIsEvil: Who would have thought this adorable girl is responsible for [[spoiler:murdering Ryuko's father.]]
** Later, she manipulates Ryuko into a scenario that forces her to wear Senketsu [[spoiler:by disguising herself as a helpless young man,]] [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy knowing full well that her compassion wouldn't dare let Ryuko abandon someone, which allows her to corner Ryuko and inevitably cut Senketsu into pieces.]]
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: She disguises herself to forcefully break Ryuko out of her HeroicBSOD [[HopeSpot to lead her to a dangerous trap that leads to her to destroy Senketsu]]. She also makes sure that the Mankanshokus aren't there to save her like before by getting Mako in trouble with the Disciplinary Committee and beating up her dad so her mom and brother are distracted caring for him.
* DarkActionGirl: She is brutally sadistic beyond belief, to the point even Satsuki feels unease around her.
* DissonantLaughter: She gleefully laughs at all the carnage Ryuko causes during her beserker rage.
* DoppelgangerAttack: Can create entire armies of herself by scattering around smaller versions of her dress.
* TheDragon: To Ragyo.
** DragonWithAnAgenda: She acts entirely on her own whims. Ragyo is aware of this, but plays along with her, with the excuse of being an artist; even the CEO of the most powerful company in the world cannot rein in her whims.
*** In practice though, this attribute is {{Downplayed}} to the point it might as well not apply. While Ragyo and Nui herself insist that Nui follows her own agenda first and foremost, Nui has yet to be shown to have an end-goal of her own in mind, let alone one that deviates significantly with Ragyo's, plus none of Nui's flights of fancy ever seem to do anything that actually goes against Ragyo's intentions.
* TheDreaded: [[TheStoic Satsuki]] momentarily loses her cool and calls Sanageyama to retreat when she arrives. That should tell you a lot about her.
* ElegantGothicLolita: She's dressed in the Sweet Lolita style to compliment her sickeningly sweet and childish demeanor.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Let's see... She drops in between the crossfire of Ryuko and Sanageyama's King of the Hill match without a hint of worry, with LimitedAnimation and somehow facing both of them at the same time. Satsuki calls Sanageyama to retreat, and when he doesn't listen, Nui blocks the full brunt of his transformed Goku Uniform's attack with just a parasol without a problem, unravels said uniform with her pinky, and nonchalantly knocks him off the edge of the stage. Let's just say, she's very unsettling.
* EvilIsDeathlyCold: Senketsu comments that her hand feels ice cold when she touches him.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: One of the series' subtler ones--the cutesy whorls and sparkles in her good eye form a [[http://s785.photobucket.com/user/Razormusik/media/1392510720189_zps21e9cd3b.png.html grinning death mask]].
* EyepatchOfPower: It's shaped like a combination of the katakana for her name.
* EyeScream: [[spoiler:Isshin Matoi]] cut out her left eye ''with giant scissors''. HighPressureBlood ensued.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Nui is a subversion, as her voice is very high and cute. But in episode 22 [[spoiler: [[VillainousBreakdown she looses her cool big time]]]], and her voice gets a lot deeper and rougher.
* TheFakeCutie: A cute and bubbly girl she may be, but she's also a remorseless psychopath who [[spoiler:murdered Ryuko's father.]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: She acts very sweet and playful, yet in reality, she's a sadist who would rather watch her opponent suffer horribly than kill them swiftly.
* FingerPokeOfDoom: She can [[AllClothUnravels pull apart a whole Goku Uniform with her fingernail, which has rows of tiny hooks that can snap the Life Fiber holding it together]].
* GigglingVillain: Part of her [[FauxAffablyEvil cutesy girlish façade]] is a rather sing-song tone of voice and cheerful manner of speaking.
* GratuitousFrench: Occasionally tosses in a "non" or some similar simple French, such as calling Ryuko "mon amie". She also [[BorrowedCatchphrase borrows Ragyo's catchphrase]] in episode 19.
--> '''Nui''': "[[MesACrowd Mon mignon, prêt-à-porter!]]"
* HairDecorations: She wears a big, pink bow.
%%* HeroKiller: Downplayed. Her only victims so far are [[spoiler:Isshin Matoi,]] Sanageyama and Senketsu, although the latter two weren't fatal and recovered in time to get back at her later in the series. She still puts everyone in danger of death everytime she appears, though.
* HighPressureBlood: Done when [[spoiler:Isshin Matoi]] cut out her left eye. Done again when [[spoiler:Ryuko throws her Scissor Blade at Nui's back, pinning her to the ''S.S. Naked Sun'''s deck]]. Taken to [[CrossesTheLineTwice hilarious extremes]] when Ryuko chops off [[spoiler:both of her arms]] and she emits fountains of blood, much of which is sprayed directly into Rei's face.
* HumanoidAbomination: Her superhuman strength and resilience is attributed to [[spoiler:being born directly from the Primordial Life Fiber's artificial womb, in contrast to [[HalfHumanHybrid Ryuko]].]]
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Apart from her ParasolOfPain and Scissor Blade, she was known to have fought with a tape measure. A ''razor'' tape measure. Also ties to stab somebody in the neck with a knitting needle later on.
* InLoveWithYourCarnage: She loves to watch Satsuki and Ryuko fight when they wear their Kamui but what really excites her is [[spoiler:Ryuko going on a rampage in her berserk form.]]
* {{Kawaiiko}}: You might just get [[TastesLikeDiabetes diabetes]] from how sweet she looks, acts and sounds.
* KickingAssInAllHerFinery: An ElegantGothicLolita who can run circles around Ryuko without batting an eye.
* KnightOfCerebus: Her introduction marks a pretty noticeable shift in tone for the show, given her personality, display of power, and TheReveal that she [[spoiler:killed Isshin.]] Whenever she shows up, you know things are about to get serious.
* {{Leitmotif}}: The second half of "Kiる厭[=KiLL=]", comprised of creepy chimes, [[CreepyChildrenSinging eerie choral stings]], and oppressive beats to [[SoundtrackDissonance underline]] her [[DissonantSerenity unsettling presence]].
* LimitedAnimation: A constant detail underlining how she is somehow... ''off''. She almost never seems to make full-body movements, and instead stiffly hops from place to place and spends battles standing still except for her right hand attacking or parrying. The three times she's forced to quickly dodge an attack in her fight with Ryuko, she jumps into the air, spinning around like a cardboard cut-out, stiff as a board. This is later used to full effect in Episode 18, against a revitalized Ryuko she is forced to make completely animated motions and [[spoiler:is significantly outclassed while doing so.]]
* MadeOfIron: Brushes off trip mines and laser cannons with a scoff.
* MadnessMantra: After [[spoiler:Ryuko cuts and absorbs both of her arms,]] she begins yelling "You're pissing me off!" nonstop until Rei picks her up with a chopper.
* ManipulativeBitch: She reveals to Ryuko that [[spoiler:she killed her father,]] knowing Ryuko would lose control of Senketsu in her rage and die in the process.
** Later, when she finds herself banned from the school and Ryuko is too doubtful of herself to fight her, she [[spoiler:poses as a male student sympathizer]] and persuades her to get back on her feet just so she can lose control again, also getting Mako in trouble with the Disciplinary Committee so she won't be able to help Ryuko like before.
* MarionetteMaster: She can use Life Fibers to control life-sized puppets.
* MasterOfDisguise: She is able to disguise herself and her dolls into someone else with Life Fibers, using it to great effect to [[spoiler:lure Ryuko into a trap.]]
* MediumAwareness: She leans on her own intro subtitle and manages to caress Satsuki's hair through ''[[SplitScreen Split Screens]]''.
* MegaTwinTails: She wears her hair up in two huge ringlets.
* MesACrowd: Can apparently make huge hordes of clones pop out of her umbrella.
* MiniDressOfPower: She wears a [[PinkMeansFeminine one piece pink dress]] [[ElegantGothicLolita in the Sweet Lolita style]]. She's also strong enough to treat battles as if they were games.
* MorphicResonance: Her eye is still missing when she's [[spoiler:disguised as Shinjiro Nagita,]] forcing her to [[PeekABangs cover it]] with [[spoiler:"his" hair.]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: At first it seems subverted as [[spoiler:she brought [[AchillesInHisTent Ryuko out of her tent]] only to crush her again]] but in the long run she actually managed to [[spoiler:motivate Ryuko to grow stronger]] and it seriously bit her in the butt later on.
** A minor one in episode 21, as her reluctance to [[spoiler:give Ryuko the second half of the Scissor Blades]] is all Satsuki needs to figure out that [[spoiler:Ryuko's brainwashing isn't perfect.]]
* NighInvulnerability: To everything besides the Scissor Blades. Not one of the Elite Four is able to so much as scratch her with their MK II uniforms' best attacks.
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: For many of the reasons listed.
-->'''Satsuki''': When ''you'' consider something charming, it never ends well.
* NonchalantDodge: She dodges and blocks attacks with almost no effort, treating them like some sort of game. She can even dodge machine gun fire from almost point blank.
* NoSell: She doesn't even flinch from being hit by grenade explosions and finds them to be a mild nuisance.
** In episode 18 the Elite Four with their upgraded uniforms attack her all at once. They literally do more damage to each other than to her.
* OhCrap: A few times.
** Her sugary façade fades when she realizes that [[spoiler:she's outmatched by a SuperMode Ryuko.]]
** And in episode 21, when Satsuki tells her that, she knows [[spoiler:she and Ragyo don't trust Ryuko.]] Also when she is [[spoiler:impaled by Ryuko, who is finally freed from Junketsu's control.]]
** In episode 22, her facade is completely destroyed after [[spoiler:Ryuko chops her arms off and destroys them.]]
* ParasolOfPrettiness[=/=]ParasolOfPain: One sturdy enough to block Sanageyama's giant kendo sword.
* PerpetualSmiler: She always shows a rather cute smile, even while doing things like dispatching Sanageyama in two hits or nonchalantly telling Ryuko that she killed her father.
* PinkMeansFeminine: She wears a pink frilly dress, and is fittingly the cutesiest character in the series by far (if only [[FauxAffablyEvil superficially]]).
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: When first introduced in episode 11, she is called the Number One Designer of [=REVOCS=], but she is never seen designing or making anything, [[spoiler: until episode 19.]]
* PsychoLesbian: Flirts heavily with both Satsuki and Ryuko in her introduction episode. Episode 20 and 21 imply she may actually be in love with Ryuko and a passing comment in 21 implies that Ragyo and her have been intimate. Not to mention the threesome.
* [[PsychopathicManchild Psychopathic Womanchild]]: She inflicts misery and pain solely for the sake of her own amusement.
* PurpleIsPowerful: As opposed to Ryuko's [[RedIsHeroic red]] Scissor Blade, Nui wields a purple blade, [[spoiler:the other half of Isshin's shears and the weapon used to kill him. Also when she literally shows her heart to Ryuko to prove that she is also a human-life fiber hybrid, it glows with a purple hue.]]
* RapunzelHair: Those pigtails have more volume than her entire body.
* RedBaron: Her title is "Grand Couturier". The title in real life signifies a designer that can create high quality, customized clothing of signature style and pattern; here, she is considered a very powerful person since [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman clothing has a lot of power]].
* RevengeByProxy: Decides to torment Ryuko because [[spoiler:her father]] outwitted and managed to injure her.
* RomanticismVersusEnlightenment: The Romanticist to Isshin's Enlightenment. Aesthetics matter greatly to her.
* SanitySlippage: Any sanity Nui might have had all but completely evaporates in Episode 22 [[spoiler:after Ryuko dismembers and absorbs her arms]]. From there on out, her cutesy facade is permanently replaced with a creepy SlasherSmile and a burning desire to horribly murder Ryuko.
* ShearMenace: She owns the other half of Ryuko's Scissor Blade.
* SinisterScythe: Her Scissor Blade's Decapitation Mode is a double-ended one.
* SlasherSmile: Flashes a permanent one after [[spoiler:Ryuko cuts off and absorbs both of her arms,]] which in turn triggers her definite VillainousBreakdown.
* SoreLoser: Though she'd never admit it, Satsuki believes Nui to be considerably pissed that Isshin tricked her into taking his Rending Scissors instead of the Kamui he was working on, which also [[EyeScream cost her an eye]].
** All but confirmed in Episode 22. [[spoiler:Her rage at the humiliation she receives from Ryuko and Satsuki, and then being bailed out by Hououmaru, is [[NightmareFuel rather impressive]] to behold.]]
* SpannerInTheWorks: Keeps throwing Satsuki's Ryuko-related plans into disarray forcing her to [[XanatosSpeedChess adjust them on the fly.]]
* StealthHiBye: She has a penchant of appearing out of nowhere, first demonstrated in episode 13, when she suddenly appears behind Ragyo after Satsuki leaves. [[spoiler: She also reveals herself to be Satsuki's helicopter pilot during episode 16, and hints that [[NightmareFuel she's been there all along.]]]]
* StrangerBehindTheMask: She's revealed to be [[spoiler:the killer of Ryuko's father]]...in the same episode she is introduced.
* SuperSpeed: Avoids every attack given by Ryuko blow for blow, even the gunfire from Tsugumu's needle guns.
* SuperStrength: The fact that she can block a fully transformed Sanageyama's sword (keep in mind that a Goku Uniform enhances its wearer's physical attributes) without so much as showing any hint of effort implies that she's stronger than she looks. She even does this ''without wearing a Goku Uniform.''
* SuperToughness: To the point where she doesn't even bother to block most attacks, as they almost never even get her hurt. So far she's only been injured one time, during a flashback well before the series proper began.
* SweetPollyOliver: Disguises herself as a male student, [[spoiler:Shinjiro Nagita, in episode 13]].
* SwordPlant: Plants her Scissor Blade in the ground as an improvised seat.
* ThemeNaming: Her given name means "to sew", and her surname means "stitch".
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Girly Girl to Ryuko's Tomboy. However, they're far from being friends; at least, Ryuko thinks so...
* {{Troll}}: If her gleeful declaration that she killed Ryuko's father to get a reaction wasn't enough, episode 13 shows her ''disguising herself as a male student'' just to break Ryuko all over again.
* UltimateBlacksmith: InAWorld where ClothesMakeTheSuperman, being a Grand Couturier amounts to one. She demonstrates her skill in manipulating life fibers by putting on a near perfect disguise and creating perfectly lifelike puppets [[ManipulativeBastard all to make Ryuko wear Senketsu so she can destroy it.]]
* UncannyValleyGirl: She can [[MediumAwareness reach through a split screen]], [[DissonantSerenity is always smiling]], and her movements are noticeably less fluid than the other characters.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: Where she keeps the other half of Ryuko's Scissor Blade.
* VillainForgotToLevelGrind: Downplayed. She is still easily as strong as the entire Elite Four ''combined'' even after their MidSeasonUpgrade, and the SuperMode that Ryuko uses to best her isn't even unlocked until the very beginning of their fight.
* VillainousBreakdown: Her sugary sweet façade has been broken several times throughout the series.
** The first was in a flashback, where [[spoiler:Isshin Matoi]] caught her off-guard with the aforementioned EyeScream, causing her to scream in pain and violently finish [[spoiler:Ryuko's father]] off in retaliation.
** The second is when she fights Ryuko in episode 18 and is shocked that Ryuko [[spoiler:has gotten strong enough to be more than a match for her.]]
** The third comes when she gets gagged by [[spoiler:Ryuko's cloth]] and subsequently gets stabbed in Episode 20. [[spoiler: This one is subverted, however, since she acts like she's in pain but then immediately smiles and says "Just kidding!".]]
** The fourth time in Episode 22, however, [[spoiler:she has her arms chopped off by Ryuko]] and the villainous breakdown sticks, her cutesy-poo facade permanently replaced with a SlasherSmile and murderous rage.
* VillainousCrush: Seems to have developed one for Ryuko after [[spoiler:learning that she was a human/Life Fiber-hybrid like her.]]
* WakeUpCallBoss: She [[CurbStompBattle easily defeats Sanageyama]] [[TheWorfEffect even after his levels taken in badassery]], and that is before she pulls out the other half of Ryuko's Scissor Blade. She even destroys Senketsu to let you know how above the [[SortingAlgorithmOfEvil sorting algorithm]] she really is.
* WalkingSpoiler: Of the same magnitude as [[BigBad Ragyo]]. Made even more [[JustForFun/{{Egregious}} egregrious]] because she appears mid-season and drops a [[WhamLine bombshell]] on her very first appearance.
* WhipItGood: In a flashback, she uses her tape measure like this to attack Isshin Matoi and retrieve the Rending Scissors.
* TheWorfEffect: Twofold actually; her being completely outperformed by [[spoiler:Ryuko who has unlocked her SuperMode]] serves merely as build-up to show just how ridiculously overpowered [[spoiler:a Junketsu-wearing Ragyo]] is.

* CoolShades: She puts on a pair of shades when facing Ragyo.
* DarkSkinnedBlond: African skin tone, lilac dreadlocks.
* TheDragon: While she appears like a mere assistant in the background, [[spoiler:she is revealed to be fully aware of Ragyo's plans, at least to the extent Satsuki is, and fully endorses the Life Fibers' takeover of the world.]]
* MeaningfulName: "Hou-ou" is the Japanese name for the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fenghuang fenghuang]], which supposedly has rainbow-colored plumage.
* NoSell: She doesn't seem to have taken any damage from the attacks she suffered from [[spoiler:a rebelling Satsuki]], one of which sent her flying to a wall.
* NervesOfSteel: Keeps a thoroughly straight face as Nui verbally lashes out at her, even [[HighPressureBlood getting sprayed in the face by a geyser of blood]] stemming from [[spoiler:where Nui's arms used to be.]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: In her haste to [[spoiler:save Nui]] she deployed a large number of COVERs which Nudist Beach easily defeated, gaining both allies and [[spoiler:Life Fibers necessary to produce a large number of Goku Uniforms.]]
* OvershadowedByAwesome: When she finally gets to fight, even though she is capable of superhuman feats, she is [[spoiler: constantly being thrown around by either the Elite Four or Satsuki wearing Junketsu.]]
* StoicSpectacles: While she's not always wearing them, they're used to great effect as Rei keeps a completely straight face even as she's sprayed by HighPressureBlood, courtesy of [[spoiler:Nui, whose arms had been cut off permanently by Ryuko.]]
* SuperSpeed: Manages to free Ragyo from her cross and take her in the middle of Satsuki's forces in the time it takes for Satsuki to swing her sword in order to stop her from rescuing Ragyo in the first place.
* WomanInWhite: Barring [[DarkSkinnedBlonde her skin tone]], she's clad in white clothes all the time, and is [[BigBad Ragyo]]'s [[TheDragon direct subordinate]].
* YouShallNotPass: Almost word for word to the Elite Four at the end of episode 18. It helps that they were already backed into a corner by Nui's clones when she said it.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Wears thigh-high stockings and a miniskirt.

----
* EightiesHair: He has a 'do that makes [[AFlockOfSeagulls Mike Score's]] haircut look dignified.
* ArcWords: In Soichiro's first appearance, the first thing he said is, "This will be your wedding dress," to a five-year-old Satsuki while looking at Junketsu, words she keenly remembers. The significance is revealed when it's finished: [[spoiler:"But when you put it on, you will become a slave to clothing."]] These words were the spark that forever changed Satsuki from a cheerful, innocent little girl into a hardened warrior determined to [[spoiler:bring down COVERS and her mother, Ragyo.]]
* TheFaceless: We first see him in Episode 3 when he showed Junketsu to Satsuki, but didn't see his full face until Episode 18.
* FakingTheDead: Satsuki thought he died after Kuroido targeted and destroyed his car, but he survived by covering himself with Life Fibers. Some time after he escaped, [[spoiler:he had surgery to drastically alter his appearance to become Isshin Matoi.]]
* HeelRealization[=/=]HeelFaceTurn: Upon realising that Ragyo is a cold, heartless shrew who [[spoiler:essentially used their children for experimentation and didn't give a damn when their youngest daughter (seemingly) died as a result of said experimentation,]] he turns against her full force and aims to [[spoiler:take her and the Life Fibers down.]] To this effect, he faked his death and [[spoiler:became Isshin Matoi.]]
* MadScientist: Doesn't exactly look the part, but really, [[spoiler:what kind of parent cuts open his newborn daughter, stuffs her full of [[StarfishAlien Life Fibers]] and then performs experiments on her?]]
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: His EightiesHair gives him a more "old-school anime" look than the other characters. [[spoiler:This can be seen as a clue that he and another character with an old-fashioned character design, Isshin Matoi, are one and the same.]]
* PosthumousCharacter: Satsuki's father died quite sometime before the series began. It's also revealed [[spoiler:that ''he'' is actually Isshin Matoi, making Satsuki and Ryuko sisters.]]

* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: At one point carries around eight to ten people on his back with very little difficulty.
* TheJeeves: Fits this trope to a tee: he's always polite and unquestioning, and always ready to pour his master a spot of tea.
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: He's the only one of Satsuki's servants who doesn't object to her stealing and wearing Junketsu against her mother's position. [[spoiler: He even participates in Satsuki's rebellion against her mother.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: Is really more of a surrogate Grandpa than butler to Satsuki, he was with her since she was five and is the only person Satsuki seems to feel relaxed and happy around. [[AbusiveParents He's far better than her only living parent, too.]]

!Mankanshoku Family
[[folder:General]]
Mako's poor, eccentric yet happy family who live contentedly in the slums of Honnou Town. They become Ryuko's surrogate family after she transfers to the academy.
----
* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: They become quite vain and haughty in episode 7 once Mako books them a whole mansion.
* ArtShift: In episode 17, when confronting Gamagori about Ryuko's and Mako's whereabouts, they take on a more dramatic and realistic art style.
* ChivalrousPervert: Every single member of the family is DistractedByTheSexy at one point or another and the boys try to peep on Ryuko often, but none of them actually take it too far.
** When Nagita is alone with Mako and Ryuko in their house, the rest of the family are seen spying on them, almost as if they expect something to happen.
* {{Foil}}: It becomes increasingly clear that they are the family Ryuko wanted or could have had, compared to her father [[spoiler:and mother]].
* ICallItVera: What the Mankanshoku family thinks of Ryuko's relationship with Senketsu, as they can only see her talking to an inanimate school uniform. Mako tells her family to understand, as she thinks Ryuko is a very lonely girl. Although they do eventually figure out that Senketsu is indeed sentient, even if they can't hear what he's saying.
* JerkassBall: In episode 7, Mako's promotion to One-Star allows them to live like kings, but it also [[AcquiredSituationalNarcissism turns them into pompous socialites who would rather have Mako kill Ryuko if it means keeping their new lifestyle. The fortunately drop it by the episode's end after Mako helps knock some sense into them.]]
* LikeASonToMe: The family considers Ryuko to be one of their own, even if they find her habit of talking to her clothes a bit disconcerting.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: After Mako chews them out for simply watching her slowly pummel her best friend to death, the whole family strips to their underwear and grovels before Ryuko in apology.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: They're noticeably more cartoony-looking than the other, more roughly-drawn characters.
* OffscreenTeleportation: In a CallBack to No-Late Day, the whole family does this in Episode 18.
* QuirkyHousehold: They love seeing Ryuko naked and consider a plateful of croquets made from unidentifiable junk to be the finest food in Japan, yet they're the most loving family anyone can hope for.
* RagsToRiches: In episode 7, after Mako becomes president of the new Fight Club, their social standing increases ''dramatically'', moving from the slums to their own condo, and eventually a mansion. [[EasyComeEasyGo This plays out about as well as one would expect.]]
* ShooOutTheClowns: Averted. If they're around, there will be wacky hijinks, however minor. Those situations that are completely serious don't feature them to begin with.
* ThemeNaming: "Mankanshoku" means "all dressed up".
* ThickerThanWater: Their reaction to Mako beating the crap out of Ryuko in episode 7 is to cheer for their daughter, since they're in no mood to lose their newfound wealth should Mako lose. Once Mako comes to her senses, she's understandably horrified by their behavior [[WhatTheHellHero and makes sure they feel the same way]].
* TookALevelInBadass: When they confront Gamagoori regarding the details of the Grand Festival and if Ryuko and Mako are okay.

* BackAlleyDoctor: He even has a glowing neon sign on his house labelling him as such.
** Although it would seem he has a OneHourWorkWeek, as we never see him doing any actual doctoring.
*** FridgeHorror sets in when you remember that he freely admits that his patients die on his watch more often than not, so people are probably avoiding him except as a last resort.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: When he stands up to Gamagoori in the episode for the sports festival accomodation.
* {{Gonk}}: He's much more blobbish than the other, more reasonably proportioned characters.

* BrutalHonesty: Doesn't shy away from admitting what incompetent idiots her husband and son are.
* CordonBleughChef: She will cook ''anything'' as long as it's not poisonous. Interestingly for this trope, the food always both looks and tastes delicious; you just don't want to know what's in it.
* CovertPervert: Unlike Ryuko, she's more than a little curious about what Aikuro is packing.
* EatingTheEyeCandy: She can't resist [[http://i.imgur.com/N5hekwM.gif checking Aikuro out]] when he is close, proving she's just like the rest of the family.
* GirlyRun: Exagerrated. She runs with her hands balled into fists under her chin and her elbows glued to her sides.

* BrattyHalfPint: Acts real tough when he and his boys decide to [[BullyingADragon take on Ryuko]].
* TheChewToy: His main purpose in the story seems to be getting beaten up whenever he does something stupid.
* DirtyKid: He knows how sexy Ryuko looks when wearing Senketsu, and he isn't afraid to point it out. And in episode 19, in a brief scene, he's noticeably blushing and drooling over the person who saved his life: [[spoiler:Nonon in [[{{Stripperiffic}} Nudist Beach gear]], that is.]]
* GogglesDoNothing: Wears a pair of shades on his forehead.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: A protagonist example. She aims to overthrow her mother Ragyo, [[spoiler: to stop her plot of enslaving humanity to Life Fibers,]] but has no problem using and abusing anything she sees fit to accomplish this, nor has any problem casting aside anything she felt wouldn't help her.

Both of them then proceed to chastise Ryuuko for holding back against Satsuki, and then Jakuruze and Inamuta stand in and they basically declare they ''will not'' let any harm come to their leader, even if they have to defy her to do so.]] Even Satsuki herself was shocked by their devotion.
