---- [[foldercontrol]] [[folder:Spartoi]] !!Maka Albarn http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/30818.jpg -->Voiced by: ChiakiOmigawa (JP), JunkoTakeuchi (JP - CD dramas), LauraBailey (EN) BadassBookworm heroine and meister to Soul. Her goal is to obtain the 100 souls required to turn Soul into a Death Scythe. [[spoiler:She succeeds.]] ----- * ActionGirl * [[spoiler:AllMenArePerverts]]: [[spoiler:Out of all the {{genderswap}}ped girls, Maka's the only one to get a nosebleed. [[NotSoAboveItAll Coincidence]]]]? ** [[spoiler:Made even better by [[AttractiveBentGender Soul]] lampshading it]]. * AlmightyJanitor: [[spoiler:Not anymore, since Soul is a Death Scythe now]]. * AwesomeByAnalysis: by chapter 76 she and Soul pull a CMOA via this trope. * [[spoiler:AxCrazy]]: [[spoiler:Under the effect of the black blood when fighting Crona]]. * BackToBackBadasses: With Black Star. * BadassAdorable * BadassBookworm: Soul is her weapon of choice. Her second favorite weapon? A nice, hard [[ThrowTheBookAtThem book]]. * BadassInDistress: What Maka went through [[spoiler: in the Envy and Sloth chapters]]. She seems to be back to action now that [[spoiler: she's determined to save Crona even when everyone thinks s/he's hopeless now]], though [[RealWomenNeverWearDresses it didn't stop some people]] from crying "{{Chickification}}". * BadassLongcoat * BattleBallgown[=/=]KickingAssInAllHerFinery: [[spoiler:The BlackBlood dress armor]]. * BerserkButton: In the anime, after she befriends Crona, hurting Crona is her berserk button. An example, [[spoiler:during the final fight with Medusa in the anime, Crona gets badly injured trying to protect Maka. Maka then unleashed a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on Medusa. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrgVSogcqpo See it here]]]]. ** More specifically, ''Medusa'' sets off a BerserkButton in Maka for what she did to Crona. Maka also finds Medusa extremely frustrating to deal with, especially since Maka seems to want to find the best in everyone. ** Soul getting hurt is also one, especially if she's the reason he gets hurt, although to a lesser degree. The most obvious is their in their initial fight with Crona. The next time they meet, she beats the ''shit'' outta the kid, before [[DefeatMeansFriendship befriending]] [[AmbiguousGender him/her]] of course. * ButNotTooForeign: Is half-Japanese * CatchPhrase: "I'll take your soul." Or something similar. ** "'''Maka...CHOP!'''" Mostly anime. * ChildhoodFriends: With Black*Star * CooldownHug: With Crona. * CountryMatters: In the Hungarian dub. * CryCute: Well, Maka is usually a tough girl, but...[[http://www.mangareader.net/157-51436-11/soul-eater/chapter-74.html just look]]. Might count as {{moe}}, too. * CuteBruiser * DangerouslyShortSkirt * DemonSlaying: One of the few characters gifted with the sought-after anti-demon wavelength. As a result, she's extremely sensitive to anything "demonic" and extremely effective at killing anything "demonic". * {{Determinator}} PluckyGirl: Eventually. When she ''does'' become it though, the only thing that can stop her is unconsciousness or death. Really. This is more focused on in the manga [[spoiler:particularly when fighting against the mad clown and destroying Arachne]], where her absolute grim determination tops everything else (in the anime they changed it to "courage"). ** The manga has Arachne stating that courage cannot win every battle. Considering Maka's current dilemma [[spoiler:in the Book of Eibon]], it looks like she had a point; ''bravery'' isn't the problem here. ** Nope, by chapter 75, she fixes it with determination/courage. *** Actually deconstructed, because she finds it by accepting that she needs to work with Soul in order to win, overcoming the influences of the Book. It wasn't purely about standing up to the bad guy. * DoesNotLikeMen: Due to her issues with her father. ** It's not quite extended to men in general. Only the ones who act inappropriately get Maka-Chopped or otherwise punished. Some, like Stein, Kid, Soul to [[VitriolicBestBuds an extent]] Maka has little problem with. * DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: At least to some, Maka's [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning scythe-spinning]] is reminiscent of color guard flag-spinning. * EverythingsBetterWithSpinning * ExpressiveHair: In the anime her pigtails stand up and/or wiggle when she's agitated. * {{Fanservice}}: While Maka was mainly an aversion of this starting from the first chapter, recent color pages have been showing her...um...[[IncrediblyLamePun development]]. Especially with the color page of Square Enix for Chapter 77, where her outfit looks quite similar to ''[[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Yoko's]]''. ** Or maybe BlackRockShooter * FourTemperamentEnsemble: Choleric. * [[spoiler:GenderBender]]: [[spoiler:Along with the rest of the Spartoi]] * GenerationXerox: Somewhat, with her mother. * GirlishPigtails * [[spoiler:GreenEyedMonster]]: [[spoiler:The Envy Chapter forces Maka to acknowledge her envy of the other meisters who want to be Soul's partner, people like Liz who can appreciate music with Soul, and music itself]]. * GreenEyes * HalfHumanHybrid: Her mother is a human while her father is a weapon. Slightly averted in that she doesn't seem to be any different to other humans. (Well to be fair, in ''SoulEater'' the "weapons" are just people with the special power to transform. They're still human.) ** [[spoiler:In the anime, she can unlock a weapon form while she's asleep]]. * {{Hammerspace}}: Where ''does'' that book come from? * {{The Hero}}ine * [[spoiler:HeroicSelfDeprecation]]: [[spoiler:Maka has a ''lot'' of secret insecurities about her strength as a meister. Something of a Tear Jerker in how it came about, illustrated by her seeming inability to pull of one of her signature moves, and coming after a period of Maka having gained much greater confidence and increased ability in the areas which troubled her earlier on; see how she handles both Arachne and Gopher]]. * {{Improbable Weapon User}}: Might not be as outlandish as other characters' cases [[spoiler:(e.g. Kim fights with something identified as a ''lamp'' and Kilik with twin ''pots'')]], but if you consider that a scythe is a legitimate agricultural hand tool, this could be applicable. * [[spoiler:{{Joshikousei}}]]: [[spoiler:In the manga, after becoming part of Spartoi]]. * LamarckWasRight: She gains the ability of Demon Hunter, which was created by her mother. ** This is the case, as with the demonslayer wavelength, only in the anime. The manga doesn't (...or has yet to) make this connection between Maka's rare skills and her mother. ** Also in the anime [[spoiler: her weapon form]] * LetsGetDangerous: Does this a lot after becoming part of Spartoi. Particularly when she learns to fly. At first she creates these [[PreciousPuppies cute fluffy wings]] that she's determined to keep (Soul, naturally, hates them)... and then the bad guys show up. The cute fluffy wings change into something else rather quickly. * MagicSkirt: In the anime. * {{Odango}}: Temporarily donned this while studying for the exams * [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou The Only One Allowed to Face You]]: [[spoiler:Maka to Crona after hir FaceHeelTurn and complete descent into madness. She's so determined to get Crona back to hir senses that, while hunting for hir along with a few other Spartoi members in Italy, she pretends not to know where Crona is when she's actually found hir right away, and sends the others on a WildGooseChase to ensure their confrontation remains one-on-one; she even goes without Soul. The only ones aware of her determination (Soul, Black Star, and Tsubaki) respect her decision to fight alone, but make themselves available in case things go south.]] * OpenTheIris: Averted with her normally invisible pupils becoming visible when emotionally shocked. * PantyShot: Source for this in the manga. Not a very ''reliable'' source, mind you - the fan service in general gets toned down as the series progresses, and Maka was never exactly MissFanservice to begin with. The anime averts this, however, instead using the MagicSkirt trope. * {{Pettanko}}: Compared to the other girls in the cast, anyway. And this anxiety is played-up in the manga. ** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by the cast in chapter 72, where [[spoiler:everyone [[GenderBender turns into the opposite gender]] and Maka's friends note that Maka hasn't changed a bit..]]. *** Which is hilarious when you consider that Soul, who [[TheLancer often mocks her for this]], [[spoiler: turns into a [[AllMenArePerverts prudish]], bossy, [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial flat-chested]] girl]]. * [[spoiler:PowerGivesYouWings]] * PrecisionFStrike: Both in the Hungarian dub, which has plenty of {{Cluster F Bomb}}ing. Her first was "I'm gonna kick... HER ASS!" The other one was [[CountryMatters "Go crawl into a cunt!"]] * SailorFuku: [[spoiler:After joining Spartoi]] * SheCleansUpNicely (As seen in the BallroomBlitz-esque episode) * ShesGotLegs: The anime especially likes to remind us of this. * ShipTease: With Soul. And ''how''. The Wikia entries for both [[http://souleater.wikia.com/wiki/Maka_Albarn Maka]] and [[http://souleater.wikia.com/wiki/Soul_Eater_Evans Soul]] make it explicitly clear, no matter what [[WordOfGod Ohkubo]] [[LyingCreator says]] (as if his ''throwing himself on top of her'' to protect her from certain death and her worry that other ''female'' meisters might be better suited weren't hint enough): --> It is hinted that the two may share romantic feelings towards each other, although it is never stated in general. * SignificantAnagram: Maka is an anagram of 'kama', which means 'scythe' in Japanese. * SlasherSmile * SuperpoweredEvilSide ** WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: The Black Blood. *** LaughingMad: When under the influence of the The Black Blood, especially in the anime. * [[ThrowTheBookAtThem Throw The Book At Soul]]: Maka Chop! * TookALevelInBadass: The demon-hunter. This thing [[spoiler:kills witches and ''insanity'']]. If that doesn't count as BadAss, I don't know what does. * VitriolicBestBuds: Her and Soul. !!Soul Eater (Evans) http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/34721.jpg -->Voiced by: KoukiUchiyama (JP), SoichiroHoshi (JP - CD dramas), MicahSolusod (EN) Maka's snarky Demon Scythe partner, who constantly strives to be a "cool" guy, with mixed success. He's also a talented pianist, but suffers some resentment towards his more gifted violinist brother, Wes. ----- * AcheyScars - Chapter 83 has his scar from Ragnarok aching, due to Medusa's experiments with Crona's black blood. * AlwaysSaveTheGirl * [[spoiler:AttractiveBentGender]]: [[spoiler:Gives Tsubaki and the female half of the fandom a StupidSexyFlanders moment]]. * [[spoiler:AxCrazy: When the black blood [[SanitySlippage decides to act up]] in chapters 83 and 84.]] * ByronicHero: By Stein's analysis, his aura indicates a "dark, negative and cynical person." * CatchPhrase: Seems to have a preference for using the word "Cool". * CharacterTitle * [[spoiler:CodeName]]: [[spoiler:possibly since in SoulEaterNot it is stated that Shibusen/DWMA students can chooses their own name]]. * CoolBike * DeadpanSnarker * [[spoiler:DealWithTheDevil]]: [[spoiler:Happens when he gets infected by the Black Blood, which manifests itself as a devil in his head that offers him power in exchange for his sanity]]. ** [[spoiler:Maka and Soul eventually give in to this so that they can defeat Crona and just barely regain their sanity]]. * EmbarrassingMiddleName: Subverted. He doesn't like it when people use his ''last'' name. * [[spoiler: EvenTheGirlsWantHer]]: A very strange example: [[spoiler: boy!Tsubaki thinks female!Soul is really cute. Sure she's a he at the time but it's still a female brain]]. * [[HairDecorations Every Boy Is Cuter With Hair Decs]] * FourTemperamentEnsemble: Phlegmatic. * [[spoiler:GenderBender]]: [[spoiler:Along with the rest of the Spartoi]]. * [[spoiler:GreenEyedMonster]]: [[spoiler:The Envy Chapter shows us that Soul, despite all he has accomplished as a Weapon, still envies his brother Wes's superior musical talent]]. * HeroicWillpower: [[spoiler:He got his chest ''chain sawed'' and still got back up!]] * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Black☆Star * TheLancer * {{Leitmotif}} * MeaningfulName: Might be named after Bill Evans, a prominent 20th century jazz pianist. * MusicalAssassin * {{Nosebleed}}: Whenever Blair's around. * NounVerber * [[spoiler:PowerGivesYouWings]] * RedEyesTakeWarning * [[spoiler:SanitySlippage]] - After a period where it seemed the SuperpoweredEvilSide held no danger, this one is back in chapter 83 thanks to him being near black blood. * SarcasticDevotee: To Maka * ScarsAreForever: After getting this, becomes shirtless in weapon form. * [[{{SwordBeam}} Scythe Beams]]: Can do this * ShapeshifterWeapon * SharpDressedMan: Soul looks really good in a black pin-striped suit. * ShipTease: See Maka's entry. * ShirtlessScene: During the exam episode, and sometimes when in weapon form. * SinisterScythe * SlasherSmile: A rare heroic example. But it's more from his teeth being inexplicably jagged than anything else. * SuperpoweredEvilSide ** WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: The Black Blood. * TalkingWeapon * VitriolicBestBuds: Him and Maka. * WhiteHairedPrettyBoy: The "Pretty" part may depend. ** Has only become more apparent in the manga over the {{Art Evolution}} it's undergone. Compare his initial appearance in [[http://www.mangareader.net/157-10147-16/soul-eater/chapter-2.html earlier chapters]] to [[http://www.mangareader.net/soul-eater/84/26 this.]] ** [[spoiler:Definitely in Lust chapter... but as a WhiteHairedPrettyGirl. According to Tsubaki. And many fans]]. !!Black☆Star http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/26648.jpg -->Voiced by: YumikoKobayashi (JP, anime and CD dramas), BrittneyKarbowski (EN) A loud-mouthed ninja who doesn't seem to grasp [[HighlyVisibleNinja the concept]] [[WithCatlikeTread of stealth]], Black☆Star is a perpetual show-off whose stated goal in life is to surpass God. He is Tsubaki's meister. ----- * TheAce: Frequently lampshaded. The only thing that holds him back from succeeding in every mission is his own need to show off. * AlmightyJanitor: After the [[spoiler:Book of Eibon arc]], Death the Kid hails Black☆Star as the [[spoiler:strongest meister in Shibusen]], and yet Black☆Star is far from [[spoiler:promoting Tsubaki to a Death Scythe]] or be recognized by the masses that [[spoiler:he indeed is the strongest]]. * AnimeHair[=/=]ShounenHair * AntiHero * AttentionWhore ('''SO VERY MUCH.''') ** [[spoiler:Not any more]] * BackToBackBadasses: With both Maka and Death the Kid. * {{Badass}} * BewareTheSillyOnes * BigEater * TheBigGuy (Well, he DOES use force a lot and his ego ''is'' big, so...) ** [[spoiler:He is the strongest member of Spartoi.]] * BlasphemousBoast ** BadassBoast: When he gets serious. * BoisterousBruiser * CatchPhrase: "I am the man who will surpass god!" and "YAH-HOO!" * CharacterDevelopment: Especially in the manga. * ChewingTheScenery: Any damage to the scenery is probably the result of Black☆Star chewing on it. * ChildhoodFriends: With Maka * CrossdressingVoices: He's voiced by a woman in both the Japanese and English versions. ** But not in the Hungarian dub...which actually makes him ''slightly'' more tolerable. * CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: When Black☆Star actually shuts up, he's able to fight well. * DarkIsNotEvil * DeadlyUpgrade: The Shadow☆Star. ** [[spoiler:He gets better.]] * {{Determinator}} * {{Expy}}. ''Freaking {{Naruto}}''. The similar personality, back story, power up-grades etc. (just see down the list of tropes) can be a bit of a BaseBreaker in some circles. It's also been suggested that Black☆Star is meant to be an exaggerated deconstruction of the whole Naruto-personality-thing, but if you compare Black☆Star with the [[CharacterDevelopment current Naruto]], you'd probably cock your head to the side. ** Who else immediately thought of [[GuiltyGear Chipp Zanuff]] when he first saw Black☆Star? * FearlessFool * FourTemperamentEnsemble: Sanguine. * [[spoiler:GenderBender]]: [[spoiler:Along with the rest of the Spartoi]]. ** [[spoiler:BigBreastsBigDeal]]: [[spoiler:Temporarily, after the [[GenderBender gender switch]] in chapter 74 and being who [[LargeHam he is]] [[ManIFeelLikeAWoman he must point it out]].]] * [[AGodAmI A God I Will Surpass]] * GoodOldFisticuffs: At times * GreenEyes * GroinAttack: Ahh Angela Leon, as you would say, "Got you right in the balls!" * HardHead: He fell thousands of feet '''HEAD FIRST''' and that didn't faze him. * HellishPupils: His pupils turn gold and star-shaped later on. ** [[spoiler: They've recently turned blue.]] * HighPressureBlood: That may spray out even through his ''hair''. * HighlyVisibleNinja[=/=]IncomingHam * IdiotHero * InsistentTerminology: The ☆ in his name, all mentions (and I mean ''all'') to him in the manga has the '''star''' on it, scanlators or other circles may excuse themselves with an asterisk sometimes, but in the original publication the ☆ will always be there. * IHaveTheHighGround: He loves this one. Once being so high up that nobody could hear him. * [[spoiler:IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight]]: [[spoiler:Against the {{Face Heel Turn}}ed Kid. Doesn't mean he'll stop trying to both talk ''and'' beat sense into him, though.]] ** [[spoiler:It ultimately worked, and Kid's more or less back]]. * InnocentCohabitation: According to Black☆Star in Chapter 75, Tsubaki and he sleep in the same room because they aren't enough rooms in the house. Kilik is jealous because, hey, it's ''[[TallDarkAndBishoujo Tsubaki]]'' we're talking about here. * JapanesePronouns: Refers himself as Ore-Sama most of the time. * {{Jerkass}} ** JerkWithAHeartOfJerk : Honestly, a girl as sweet and good-natured as Tsubaki-chan is more than he frankly deserves. ** {{Lampshaded}} By Maka. ** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Though he is willing to get beat over the head for almost an hour by three people to keep her safe, and genuinely cares about her well being. ** In the manga he's defintitely is the JerkWithAHeartOfGold. * KiAttacks * [[spoiler:KirkSummation]]: [[spoiler:Gives one to Kid and, by extension, [[FanNickname The Black Mass]] in 78]]. * LargeHam: 90% of Ham in the manga you can attribute directly to Black Star. In the anime... [[WorldOfHam not so much]]. * LastOfHisKind: [[spoiler:Averted with the introduction of Akane]]. * LightningBruiser * LuckyCharmsTitle * MadeOfIron: Just look at what Kid had to do to him just to make him ''stay down''. Oh, and he's up and running again in a few hours. * MonochromaticEyes * TheNapoleon * {{Ninja}} * NoIndoorVoice * {{Nosebleed}}: Whenever he's spying on Tsubaki in the bath. [[spoiler:This becomes a ReverseFunnyAneurysm moment when the Lust chapter reveals that ''[[YamatoNadeshiko Tsubaki]]'' is much more perverted than he is]]. * OnlyOneName * OpenTheIris: Averted, similair to Maka, his normally invisible pupils becoming visible when emotionally shocked or angered. * ScarfOfAsskicking: His [[spoiler: Shadow☆Star Zero Kata Masamune]] and later after he joins Spartoi he gets one. * [[spoiler:ScarsAreForever]]: [[spoiler:His star tattoo is bisected by a scar after his final battle with Mifune in the manga, indicative of his character development. And from that same fight he got scars down his arms and one on his face.]] * ScreamingWarrior: [[spoiler:He uses loud voice to disrupt Crona's Screech resonance.]] * SleevesAreForWimps * SuperSenses * TedBaxter: Only applies for the anime, later in the manga his strength starts to match his massive ego. * TheOtherDarrin: Averted unlike the others [[YumikoKobayashi his seiyuu]] voiced him in both the Drama CD and the Anime. * TinyGuyHugeGirl: To Tsubaki. * TooDumbToFool: He proudly proclaims that his sixth sense is so bad that he's unaffected by Asura's hallucinations. [[spoiler:He was wrong]]. * TookALevelInBadass: In the manga. [[spoiler:When Shibusen tracks down Crona, he encounters him/her and whups his/her ass so hard that even [[SmugSnake Medusa]] starts getting a little disconcerted at how the fight's going. Then she sent Eruka and Mizune sisters as backup, they don't help much.]] ** Well, there's that and the fight which first demonstrates that improvement; [[spoiler:after how badly he'd been getting beaten before leaving for Japan the ''proper'' dark demon blade mode, when Black☆Star and Tsubaki fight Mifune, comes out of nowhere]]. ** [[spoiler:The fact that he doesn't give into the "Madness of Power" in chapter 78 bears mentioning. Thirty chapters ago, [[HeroicBSOD he would have]]. CharacterDevelopment is a marvelous thing]]. * TranquilFury: He's most dangerous when he's not talking. * [[spoiler:WarriorTherapist]]: [[spoiler:Succeeds in talking Kid back to sanity.]] * [[spoiler:WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity]]: [[spoiler: Literally and without him losing his mind.]] * TheWorfEffect: Black☆Star suffers from this [[spoiler:(he beats Mifune in his first appearance and takes down Sid, but is [[CurbStompBattle utterly overpowered by Stein]], bested by Death the Kid, needs help to take down Free, fails to stop Medusa, [[SingleStrokeBattle is one-shotted by Asura during his awakening]], [[CurbStompBattle utterly humiliated by Mifune during their rematch]], and failed to complete his objective during the battle with Mosquito)]] and indeed suffers a minor HeroicBSOD from it. Later in the anime after recovering from his HeroicBSOD, he fights [[spoiler:Asura]] and the Worf Effect started when [[spoiler:Asura recovered from Death the Kid's Death Cannon with all three Sanzu Lines]]. * WouldHitAGirl: [[HitMeDammit Maka asks him to hit her]]. He does. ''In the face.'' * YouGottaHaveBlueHair * YourOtherLeft: Has this problem in the anime. !!Tsubaki Nakatsukasa http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/37500.jpg -->Voiced by: KaoriNazuka (JP), MamikoNoto (JP - CD dramas), MonicaRial (EN) Black☆Star's agreeable and level-headed Dark Demon Blade partner. She can change into multiple ninja weapons (shuriken, smoke bomb, a katana, etc). ----- * AnimeAnatomy * BadassAdorable * BerserkButton / BewareTheNiceOnes: the only time she actually snaps at Black☆Star is if he sees her bathing. ** ''For failing to even try being sneaky!'' She acts indifferent to the idea of him peeping if he would bother to at least seriously practice being stealthy. * {{BFS}} * BlueEyes * TheChick: Along with Liz and Patti. * [[spoiler:CovertPervert]]: [[spoiler:For someone who scolds Black☆Star for peeking at her in the bath, it turns out she's NotSoAboveItAll.]] ** [[spoiler:Not so much, she basically implied that Black☆Star can peep...as long as he doesn't get caught.]] * DarkIsNotEvil: After defeating her brother. ** CastingAShadow * DetachedSleeves * {{Expy}}: Other than the personality she bears a close resemblance to [[StreetFighter Ibuki]]. * FanService: Probably the sexiest naked back in an opening, ever. * FashionableAsymmetry * FourTemperamentEnsemble: Supine. * FuroScene: Time delay before her first bath? One episode. * {{Gainaxing}} * [[spoiler:GenderBender]]: [[spoiler:Along with the rest of the Spartoi.]] * HeyItsThatVoice: Tsubaki is [[CodeGeass Nunnally]]! ** Explains the ImTakingHerHomeWithMe feelings parts of her fandom get. * InnocentCohabitation: According to Black☆Star in Chapter 75, Tsubaki and he sleep in the same room because they aren't enough rooms in the house. Kilik is jealous because, hey, it's ''[[TallDarkAndBishoujo Tsubaki]]'' we're talking about here. * MorphWeapon: Can turn into StockNinjaWeaponry, including a FuumaShuriken, a [[SmokeOut smoke bomb]] and [[KatanasAreJustBetter a katana.]] * MsFanservice * NiceGirl * {{Ninja}} * PurpleEyes * ScarfOfAsskicking: [[spoiler: Gets one after joining Spartoi.]] * SexyBack * ShrinkingViolet * SlipknotPonytail * TallDarkAndBishoujo ** [[spoiler:TallDarkAndHandsome]]: [[spoiler:When {{gender flip}}ped.]] * TalkingWeapon * TeamMom: The most level-headed and emotionally mature of the children. * TinyGuyHugeGirl -> OneHeadTaller: To Black Star. * YamatoNadeshiko: You'd have to be, to deal with Black☆Star on a daily basis. * ZettaiRyouiki !!Death the Kid http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/73929.jpg -->Voiced by: MamoruMiyano (JP), TakakoHonda (JP - CD dramas), ToddHaberkorn (EN) Son of the Grim Reaper and meister to Liz and Patti. He is a very gifted meister whose only flaw is his crippling OCD, which manifests as an obsessive need to have everything be symmetrical. Hence, his naturally asymmetrical hairstyle is a source of great angst for him. In the recent story arc, [[spoiler:Kid has been kidnapped by Noah and is trapped in the Book of Eibon. His mental state has seemed to take a turn for the worse... so much that he either went crazy, was BrainWashed, or just plainly had a FaceHeelTurn]]. [[spoiler: And now he's going to kill the Kishin in his father's place. ON THE MOON.]] ----- * AlmightyJanitor: Perhaps the only one of the three main teams to still count as this. [[spoiler:Black☆Star and Maka are promoted to two-star students whereas Kid, thanks to having been kidnapped by a magician, is still where he started. Though for him it always was more of a technicality]]. * AntiHero * BackToBackBadasses: In the anime with Black☆Star. * BadassAngster * BadassBaritone * BadassInANiceSuit * BeatItByCompulsion: The easiest way to take him down. * BerserkButton: If Kid cannot fix something asymmetrical, he will blow it up. Also, insulting his father is a bad move. * {{BFG}}: Death Cannon. * {{Bishonen}} * BlackCloak: Wears one along with a skull mask on certain missions, making him look just like [[{{Shinigami}} his]] [[TheGrimReaper father]] from certain angles. * [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy]] * CatchPhrase: "Kichiri Kachiri", which could be translated as "Precise and Perfect". ** In the english dub, it's 'Absolutely Perfect'. * CoolBoard * [[spoiler:DarkIsNotEvil]]: [[spoiler:His insanity powerup.]] * DefenseMechanismSuperpower: The Sanzu Lines function as this when Mosquito tries to kill Kid, although they can also be activated at will. * EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette - When he gets serious, he looks downright creepy. * EyesOfGold * FashionableAsymmetry: Mostly subverted, but played straight with his hair (much to his chagrin). * FatalFlaw: His obsession with symmetry keeps him from winning fights he would otherwise have no problem with. * FlashStep * FourTemperamentEnsemble: Melancholic. * GangstaStyle: Kid takes this BeyondTheImpossible by [[ImprobableUseOfAWeapon gripping his guns ''upside-down'' ]] * GenderBender: Common in the fandom. And a rather [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/151.jpg pretty]] one at that. ** [[{{Irony}} Ironically]]... [[spoiler:when it actually happened ''in canon'' to Spartoi, he wasn't present]]. * [[spoiler:GoMadFromTheRevelation]]: [[spoiler:[[IGotBetter He got better.]]]] * GunFu * GunsAkimbo * TheGunslinger * [[spoiler:HeelFaceRevolvingDoor]]: [[spoiler:In the Book of Eibon arc, he becomes hell bent on destroying the world to get the perfect order. Thanks to Black☆Star, he goes back to normal.]] * HeroicBSOD: PlayedForLaughs whenever he does something unsymmetrical. * HoverBoard * [[spoiler:HumanoidAbomination]]: [[spoiler:Described as a "Fragment of the Madness of Law" by G.O.O.]] * [[spoiler: [[ImportantHaircut Important Hairstyle]]]]: [[spoiler: Once the lines in Kid's hair circle around his head, he can tap into amazing power, and unleash one of his most powerful attacks.]] * [[spoiler:JamesBondage]]: [[spoiler:After Noah sucks him into Eibon's book in the manga.]] * MadeOfIron: Though unlike other characters, he has the excuse of having the body of a god, and therefore capable of enduring massive amounts of physical damage. * NotSoAboveItAll: He ''would'' be the most mature and capable of the group, but his SuperOCD tends to knock him down a couple pegs. * [[spoiler:OmnicidalManiac]]: [[spoiler: When he goes insane, he aims for a Class Z Apocalypse How. He gets better.]] * ThePerfectionist * RuleOfCool: How he shoots his guns: Upside down with his pinkies. * [[spoiler:SanitySlippage]] * {{Shinigami}} * SkunkStripe: Has three of them. ** And they're actually [[spoiler:a part of his powerup.]] * TheSmartGuy * SpellMyNameWithAnS: Some earlier translations added an extra "d" to his name. It's been confirmed that there's only one. * TheStoic: One of the more serious characters in ''SoulEater''... ** NotSoStoic: ...until his SuperOCD kicks in. * SuperOCD: Severe and debilitating, but played for laughs because its one of the AcceptableTargets. ** Be it through force of will or meticulous devotion to detail, [[BeyondTheImpossible even the melted wax on the candles in his house is perfectly symmetrical]][[hottip:* : in the anime, at least. They melt the way you'd expect them to in the manga.

Then he decided to raise a school; and that involved human children. So he came up with a goofy face and persona so that DEATH would not be scary. * AnthropomorphicPersonification: Shini = death, Gami = god. ** That's a name he uses, but it's really not clear whether he's ''actually'' the embodiment of death, though the way souls reflect a person's nature suggests this could be the case. *** [[spoiler:An massive, inky ''thing' sealed within the Book of Eibon has called him a fellow "[[EldritchAbomination Great Old One]]", the "Madness of Law".

However his playful side is genuine. * DontFearTheReaper: [[JustifiedTrope Done deliberately]] so he could start a school without children being afraid of him. * EccentricMentor * [[spoiler:EldritchAbomination]]: [[spoiler:A fairly benevolent one but still.]] * GrimReaper * LetsGetDangerous: When Asura is released, his dopey round eyes turn triangular and angry, and his comedic karate chop creates shockwaves and leaves a crater upon impact. * ObfuscatingStupidity - Depending on how far his current persona is a pretence. [[BecomingTheMask He might really have 'gotten used' to it.]] * OddFriendship - Him and Spirit. Teasing, arguments, impatience, odd moments of concern for one another. Pretty much like any other meister/Weapon pair, in fact. * PreAsskickingOneLiner: "It's time for you to die again." * {{Shinigami}} [[WMG:Staff]] !!Sid Barett http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/53239.jpg -->Voiced by: MasafumiKimura (JP), KentWilliams (EN) A zombie who was once a teacher and meister at Shibusen. Post-mortem, he still serves Shinigami-sama faithfully, and he partners with Nygus in battle. He is named after Syd Barrett from PinkFloyd. ----- * AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: He's undead so that's probably a good enough excuse for being blue. * {{Badass}} * BilingualBonus: His name is spelled Shido in Japanese which means dead person. * CatchPhrase: "That's the kind of man I was." ** The anime version even gives him a brief pre-zombification cameo where he says "That's the man I am," instead. * GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath * ImprobableWeaponUser: Ordinarily battles with his Weapon, [[KnifeNut a knife type]], but is just as handy wielding his own tombstone. * IWouldSayIfICouldSay: His catch phrase counts for this frequently. * KnifeNut * {{Ninja}}: He's Black☆Star's teacher, making him a Ninja as well. ** NinjaPirateZombieRobot: An undead teacher ninja. * OurZombiesAreDifferent * PromotionToParent: He raised Black☆Star after the death of his clan. * StealthMentor: Because he's, ya know, a {{ninja}}. * TheUndead: He's a zombie. Apart from looking like a corpse and giving him a catchphrase it doesn't make much difference. !!Mira Nygus ->Voiced by: JunkoNoda (JP), Shay Moore (EN) Sid's Demon Weapon partner, who took over as the school nurse after Medusa left. In keeping with her partner's undead theme, she looks like an Egyptian mummy. Her weapon form is a [[KnifeNut combat knife]]. Is revealed to have met Sid by being the prize of a lottery for partner-less meister. ----- * BandageBabe * BareYourMidriff * BlueEyes: Of the cold and piercing variety. * BoobyTrap: Quite skilled at setting them, as [[spoiler:Mifune]] found out. * CombatMedic * FetishFuelStationAttendant: Pretty and dark-skinned lady covered in bandages including a {{sarashi}} who is also a HospitalHottie complete with [[NaughtyNurseOutfit uniform]]. Yes, please. * HospitalHottie: She's the school nurse and [[BeautifulAllAlong she's actually quite pretty]] underneath the bandages. * InnocentFanserviceGirl: If you don't count the bandages, the only clothes she wears most of the time are a pair of fatigues. * [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Mummy Ninja]] * {{Ninja}} * {{Sarashi}} * SpellMyNameWithAnS: Nygus or Naigus? ** A certain sub rendered it as "Kniges", somewhat fitting given her weapon form. * TheStoic ** {{Kuudere}} * TalkingWeapon !!Dr. Franken Stein http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/37595.jpg ->Voiced by: YuyaUchida (JP), MitsuruMiyamoto (JP - CD dramas), ChuckHuber (EN) Dr. Franken Stein is a teacher at Shibusen and the most powerful meister to ever graduate from the school. Memorable for being a textbook MadScientist, albeit a heroic one. He was Spirit Albarn's first meister, until Spirit was driven off by Stein's obsession with dissecting anything and everything, including Spirit himself. ----- * AFatherToHisMen: Beneath his dissection-obsessed MadScientist exterior, he's a good man whose students love him. * AwesomeByAnalysis * AxCrazy: Noted in chapter 93 when Spirit compares him to the Kishin. * {{Badass}} ** BadassBookworm ** BadassLabcoat * BarehandedBladeBlock * [[spoiler:ClearMyName]]: [[spoiler:Is accused of murdering Joe Buttataki and ends up disappearing for awhile as result.]] * CombatMedic * TheCorruptible: In the anime, especially. The closest to insanity of all in Shibusen, and the bad guys notice. * CreepyGood: To put this into perspective, he routinely 'experiments on people' and told his partner he switched two of his toes when he was sleeping. He didn't; he was just screwing with him, but the fact that everyone found this a believable thing for him to have done really says it all. * CreepyMonotone: In the English dub. It's subtle, but it's there. * DeadlyDoctor * {{Expy}}: Bears a strong resemblance to [[ShamanKing Faust VIII]], at least personality-wise. ** He's a(n arguably) crazier, less visibly modified [[Film/HellBoy Karl Kroenen]] who's on the side of good... for now. * FreudianExcuse: He claims he doesn't have one. He tells Medusa of the doctors who wanted to find out what traumatic event could have caused him to act so violently towards others ( with a flashback to a young Stein beating up someone random for no clear reason), and Franken just wanted to cut ''them'' up. * GeniusBruiser * GoodOldFisticuffs: He doesn't need a weapon to kick ass. * HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: He first appears as a StealthMentor, reveals he's really a teacher then [[spoiler:later goes completly nuts and defects to Medusa's side. He gets better]]. ** Only the first two apply in the manga. * HeroicSociopath * HiddenDepths: Obviously an unrepentent MadScientist, but clearly one of the most complex characters in the show. * HotScientist: It's not on purpose. Not that it really matters. ** YourMileageMayVary on this - a recent chapter outright states that Kim and somewhat implies that Maka both have a PrecociousCrush on him. * KiAttacks: The fact that [[SuperpowerLottery he can do this without a weapon]] is one the things that makes him so dangerous, * LackOfEmpathy: He's certainly not dead inside but it's pointed out that [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove he's not quite capable of love]]. ** The latter is Nygus' opinion, and valid given his history, but worth noting Stein's reaction to Marie which immediately follows this claim. * LightningBruiser * MadDoctor * MadScientist * MadnessMontage * MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate * OralFixationFixation: His signature imported cigarettes... * ObfuscatingStupidity * ProfessorGuineaPig * PunnyName: Obviously a ShoutOut to {{Frankenstein}}. * SadistTeacher * SanitySlippage: Exactly how tight '''can''' he wind that screw in his head? * ScaryShinyGlasses * ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder * ShipTease: Gets quite a bit with Marie. ** Medusa as well, but that's mostly in the anime. * SmokingIsCool * SpecsOfAwesome * StealthMentor * StealthPun: He's got a [[MadScientist screw loose]]. ** Also, he's [[CoveredWithScars loose at the seams]]. * SwivelChairAntics: initially on a swivel chair performing things for RuleOfFunny. * TeamDad: Weirdly enough. ** Accepted as such by ''Maka'' who frequently goes to him for advice and is very happy to see him when he returns in the manga. * [[TokenEvilTeammate Token Chaotic Teammate]]: He's crazier than the rest of the DWMA combined, [[spoiler: and by far the most susceptible to Asura's madness]]. * VisualPun: He's constantly tightening the screw in his head. Meaning he's got a screw loose. * WhiteHairedPrettyBoy [[/folder]] [[folder:Death Scythes]] !!Spirit Albarn http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/62588.jpg -->Voiced by: TohruOokawa (JP), HiroakiHirata (JP - CD dramas), VicMignogna (EN) He is the Shinigami's current weapon and Maka's estranged but affectionate father. Maka's mother was his former meister, but she divorced him due to his constant flirting with other women. ----- * AdultChild * [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents Amazingly Embarrassing Dad]] * BerserkButton: If there's something he hates, it's child abuse: for all of his faults as a husband, he truly wants to be a good dad. When Medusa gloats about her horrible treatment of Crona, Spirit is angry. VERY ANGRY. * BunnyEarsLawyer: Is daft and flirtatious, but is also the Shinigami's Weapon and his ability is demonstrated, if only on a couple of occasions. Marie mentions his expertise in soul wavelength control in the same sentence she points out his womanising. * CreepyCoolCrosses: Wears a tie the shape of a cross, had a similar design on his clothing as a child, which match his black, occasionally cross-shaped Weapon form. * CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass * DotingParent: He is a doting father who really tries his very best for Maka. Unfortunately, while a doting father, he is a ''[[HandsomeLech terrible]]'' [[HandsomeLech husband]]. * EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: He is sometimes called by just his title, Death Scythe - which may or may not seem more meaningful when you consider that he's the only real scythe in weapon form. ** [[spoiler: Not anymore.]] * HandsomeLech * HotShoujoDad * LovableSexManiac: Though not quite lovable enough to stop his wife from divorcing him. * MoralityChain: To Stein, especially when they were students. * OddFriendship: He and Shinigami annoy one another quite frequently, but he ''does'' seem to care about his meister (e.g the Sanzu Lines business) and his role as Death Scythe. His friendship with Stein is also odd, but for other less-pleasant reasons. * OverEnthusiasticParents * OverProtectiveDad * RedHeadedHero * SinisterScythe * TalkingWeapon * [[WellDoneSonGuy "Way Cool, Dad" Guy]]: Inverted. He constantly tries to be an admirable father-figure to Maka and seeks her approval, but she ain't buying it. !!Justin Law http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/43720.jpg -->Voiced by: YorinoshiFujita (JP), EricVale (EN) The Death Scythe in charge of Europe. His weapon form, the guillotine, fits his title of "executioner". He's usually seen wearing priestly garb and a pair of headphones that he keeps on at high volume. [[spoiler:In the manga he turns out to have been a spy for Eibon and the Kishin, much to the shock of his former colleagues.]] ----- * ArtShift: [[spoiler: Since his FaceHeelTurn, the panels depicting him have grown steadily more warped and twisted.]] * [[spoiler:AxCrazy]] * [[spoiler:BlondGuysAreEvil]]: [[spoiler:And so is Justin.]] * BlueEyes * ChildProdigy: Attained Death Scythe status as a thirteen year old, ''without'' the help of a meister to boot. * ChurchMilitant * [[spoiler:TheDragon: Has effectively become one for Kishin Asura]]. * [[spoiler:EvilFeelsGood]]: [[spoiler:He consider being Asura's [[TheDragon Dragon]] is a pleasant life.]] * [[spoiler:EvilMakesYouUgly]] * HeadphonesEqualIsolation * [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn]] * ImprobableAge[=/=]TeenGenius: He became a Death Scythe at age 13, the youngest in Shibusen's history. * [[ImprobableWeaponUser Improbable Weapon]]: Why is he the only Death Scythe who graduated without a partner? Probably because no one figured out how they were supposed to wield a ''guillotine''. * [[spoiler:KnightTemplar]] * LonersAreFreaks: He constantly isolated himself even as a child, and uses his headphones, speakers, and other noise to cut himself off from the world. * [[spoiler:LovesTheSoundOfScreaming]]: [[spoiler:He only willingly takes off his earphones because of this.]] * [[spoiler:MadnessMakeover]]: [[spoiler:Especially when he fuses with the Clown.]] * [[spoiler:TheMole]]: [[spoiler:Manga only.]] * [[spoiler:PsychoSupporter]]: [[spoiler:He is fanatically devoted to Asura, who he worship ''because'' he is the God of Fear and Madness.]] * ReadingLips: Which is good, considering his headphones. * [[spoiler:ScarsAreForever]]: [[spoiler:The scar he got when Tezca Tlipoca burned off half his face has stayed the same since it happened. Not particularly notable since that sounds reasonable, except for the fact that his ''eye has apparently been on fire since it happened.'']] * [[spoiler:SlasherSmile]]: [[spoiler:He's relatively low-key until Chapter 69, when he starts busting out grins that threaten to split his head in half.]] * StayInTheKitchen: He shows a bit of a misogynist streak in one of his later appearances, though Marie quickly reminds him [[LightningBruiser who he's dealing with]]. * TalkingWeapon * [[spoiler:ThisIsYourBrainOnEvil: The longer he stays on Asura side, the crazier he goes. By the time of his fight with Tezca Tlipoca, he's starts slipping into complete, incoherent raving madness. Then again, working for the embodiment of insanity can't be mentally healthy.]] !!Marie Mjolnir http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/32632.jpg -->Voiced by: ChiekoHonda (JP), ColleenClinkenbeard (US) The Death Scythe in charge of Oceania. Her weapon form is that of a large hammer, and her last name is derived from the legendary hammer of Thor, Mjolnir. She wears an eyepatch with a thunderbolt insignia. ------ * AdultChild * ChristmasCake: She's so desperate for commitment that at one point she tried to marry a toilet. * CloudCuckooLander: Again, ''tried to marry a toilet''. * CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass * CurbStompBattle: With Stein, against [[spoiler:Justin Law]]. * CurtainsMatchTheWindow * DropTheHammer: In the anime, Marie attacks as a hammer. But wielded by Stein, her weapon form becomes a tonfa. * {{Expy}}: She bears a close resemblance in physical appearance to Nice Holystone from Baccano!, as far as having the same hair and eye color and sporting an eye patch. They even share the same voice actress, coincidentally. * EyesOfGold * EyePatchOfPower * {{Gainaxing}} * LightningBruiser: In the manga she's this on her own. With her help, a compatible Meister can beat on someone so fast the victim doesn't even know what's happening to them. * MeaningfulName: Even more so in the anime, where her form ''actually is'' a hammer. ** The manga instead emphasises the 'lightning' connection with her ability to allow her meister to move at extremely high speeds, and the 'internal generation' she uses to burn Medusa's snake. Her nickname, "the Crusher," also recalls the mythological hammer. * MoralityChain: Chosen specifically to be Stein's weapon when fighting the Kishin for her healing wavelength. * NoSenseOfDirection: She's a Shibusen alumnus and it takes hours of trial and error for her to get anywhere. * SenseiChan * ShipTease: With Stein. * SilkHidingSteel: An extremely goofy version, but an example nonetheless. Follows Shinigami's orders to a T (indeed one of the few that showed up when he called after Ashura got out) and is put in charge of quietly reigning in Stein's madness. As for the steel, well, her nickname ''is'' "Crushing Weapon." * TalkingWeapon * TeamMom !!Yumi Azusa http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/32634.jpg -->Voiced by: {{Yukana}} (JP), BrinaPalencia (EN) The Death Scythe in charge of East Asia. She is bookish and analytical and is close friends with Marie. In weapon form she takes the form of a crossbow, able to fire high pressure spirit shots up to 10 km accurately. She is also an extremely competent information gatherer and tactician, easily finding one of Arachnophobia's labs. ------ * ColdSniper * HotLibrarian * MeaningfulName: It's supposed to be a pun on the azusayumi, a type of Japanese bow (as in bow and arrow). * {{Meganekko}} * NerdsAreSexy * PerpetualFrowner * PsychicPowers * ScaryShinyGlasses * SpecsOfAwesome * TheStoic * TalkingWeapon !!Tezca Tlipoca The Death Scythe in charge of South America, Tezca appears to be a man wearing a large grinning bear mask that completely covers his head. His Weapon form is a mirror, worn on the ankle of his Meister, Enrique. ----- * AlliterativeName * BadassCreed: "Life and death are bestowed equally on all people. I'm a mirror in which a person is reflected. So, how you die is up to you..." * ChekhovsGunman * {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Snaps between this and his competent {{Badass}} persona in the blink of an eye. For example, [[spoiler: after faking his death, he disguises himself by putting on a giant ''gopher'' head]]. * CoolMask: That is one freaky bear head. * CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass * [[spoiler: FakingTheDead]]: [[spoiler: Thought to have been unceremoniously bitten in half, but turns out he used a dummy to fake his death and track Justin Law. Justin Law later decapitated him and checked the body to make sure - the body was real, but Tezca's soul survived..]] * TheFightingNarcissist: One of his stated motivations is to create a perfect copy of himself because he thinks he's very good-looking under the mask, but can't reflect himself. * [[spoiler: ImplacableMan: First he's seemingly killed by Noah, then he really dies fighting Justin, and now he's appearing in mirrors as some kind of twisted ghost thing. His dialog during this last time seems to imply that he could just come back to life if he found a new body, and may have done so before.]] * [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Averted twice, though his physical body has been destroyed.]] * MagicMirror: He can [[MirrorMatch taking on another's appearance]], show his enemies how they're going to die, and [[spoiler: create numerous, independent copies of himself, which can rejoin their bodies in [[BodyHorror unsettling ways]] when "killed".]] * MaskOfPower: Subverted; not only does the mask not seem to serve any purpose, but it also makes it impossible for lip-reader Justin Law to understand him. Since they were apparently old friends, this means Justin hung around him for ''years'' [[CrowningMomentofFunny without catching a single word he said]]. * MeaningfulName: "Tezcatlipoca" is the name of an Aztec god associated with mirrors. It literally means "Smoking Mirror" and the way it's separated, gives him his first name as "Mirror" in nahuatl. * [[spoiler:NotQuiteDead: Justin destroyed his body, but not his soul.]] * ObfuscatingStupidity: He doesn't seem too quick on the uptake and constantly jokes around during combat, but gets serious in a big hurry. * PaperThinDisguise: The man who can make himself look like anybody, but wears a giant bear mask, disguises himself...[[spoiler: by replacing the bear mask with a giant gopher mask]]. * ScarilyCompetentTracker: This seems to be his area of expertise, as we've seen him acting as an independent tracker several times now. * ShapeshifterGuiltTrip: Possibly. [[spoiler:Justin and Medusa]] both see people they've wronged in the past while looking at him at least. * SympatheticMagic: After someone's soul is reflected in his mirror, he can track them wherever they go. [[spoiler: He can even reflect his ''own'' soul, allowing it to exist after his body is destroyed.]] * TalkingWeapon !![[spoiler:Soul Eater Evans]] The newest Death Scythe, sworn in a short time after [[spoiler:Justin]] went rogue. !!Tsar Pushka The Russian Death Scythe, also known as "Magic Bullet." Appears to be an EpicFlail type weapon. ----- * BadassMustache * CaptainEthnic * DemonSlaying: One of only 3 characters in the series to be confirmed with the anti-demon wavelength. As noted by Medusa, he's particularly effective at fighting Crona as a result... up to a point. * {{Gonk}} * MadeOfIron * MeaningfulName: "Pushka" means "cannon" in Russian. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsar_Cannon "Tsar pushka"]] is the largest bombard by caliber ever built. * MightyGlacier * TalkingWeapon * TheWorfEffect !!Ding Dinga The Deathscythe in charge of Africa. His weapon form is called "Rainbow Axe." * AnAxeToGrind * AttackReflector: His Rainbow Axe seems to function as this in a way. * DarkSkinnedBlonde * RainbowMotif * WalkingShirtlessScene !!Jingaran The Deathscythe in charge of West Asia. His weapon form is a lamp. * TheFaceless * GenieInABottle: Him performing Soul Resonance with his meister creates one. * HeartSymbol: The attack called [[http://www.mangareader.net/soul-eater/95/22 "The Lovers."]] Probably also an example of ThePowerOfLove. * NoShirtLongJacket * OurGeniesAreDifferent: His [[http://www.mangareader.net/soul-eater/92/20 Jinn form]].

Zhe is unusual for a meister because zhe and hir weapon share the same body, which is a source of {{Squick}} for the heroes. ------ * AdaptationDyeJob: Hair was pink in the manga but purple in the anime (though there are a few manga illustrations where it's purple, it's usually pink). * AmbiguousGender ** This even plagued Funimation for the dub. Despite going with male pronouns for simplicity, some of the English actors and the dub director still refer to Crona as "him/her" (and [[AbusiveParents Medusa]], pretty much the only one who would actually know, [[GuineaPigFamily actually calls Crona "it"]]). * AntiVillain * AxCrazy - Seems to be this, as of recent manga chapters. Yeah... [[CooldownHug It's going to take a lot more than a hug to fix hir now]], Maka. * BodyHorror: Taken for granted, but doesn't become fully apparent until chapter 68, when we see that [[spoiler:between the corruption of Medusa, Ragnarok, and the Black Clown, hir soul has become twisted and deformed almost beyond recognition]]. ** [[spoiler:MultiArmedAndDangerous.]] * BloodyMurder: Crona can use all his/her blood as a weapon. Heck, hir blood ''is'' a weapon! * BlueEyes: In the anime. * BrownNote: Hir poetry is so depressing that it makes ANYONE, even the normally hyperactive Black Star, sulk in a corner wishing they were never born. * [[spoiler:[[CallingTheOldManOut Calling the Old Woman Out]]: After Medusa shows Crona affection for the first time in his/her life and even apologizes for her cruel treatment, Crona quite epically [[FreakOut freaks out]] and rants about how she made hir throw away everything, and how zhe too was "[[ParentalAbandonment thrown away]]," all the while stabbing her to a bloody pulp.]] * CatchPhrase: "I don't know how to deal with this..." and "My blood is black." ** [[spoiler:The former quickly turns into a MadnessMantra]]: --> [[spoiler:Kill you. Kill you. I don't know how to deal with you, so I'll kill you. Kill you. Kill you.]] * DarkAndTroubledPast * [[DarkMagicalGirl Dark Magical... Person]]: You know how Maka and Soul have a [[PlatonicLifePartners deep and affectionate relationship]] and defeat their enemies with [[ThePowerOfFriendship weaponized friendship]]? Crona's relationship with Ragnarok is about as far as one could go in the other direction. Hir relationship with Medusa makes a second contrast, with hir desperately seeking approval from hir Jerkass mother. Also Crona is Maka's rival and after her HeelFaceTurn becomes extremely attached to her. * GoingCommando: [[http://i1021.photobucket.com/albums/af332/tvtropes-pages/soul%20eater/1048318_e.jpg Yes, really]]. * GuineaPigFamily: Medusa's. * HartmanHips: Not helping the "what gender is Crona anyway" discussions at all. * [[spoiler:HeelFaceRevolvingDoor]]: [[spoiler:It's unknown which side Crona will end the manga on, but zhe finishes the anime as a Face after a full trip around the revolving door.]] * HimeCut: Sort of. ** Or it could be some sort of BobHaircut. It's hard to tell, really. The way it falls has this kinda "I cut my own hair" vibe to it that really, only adds to Crona's Woobiefication. * [[spoiler: HumanoidAbomination: Has been gradually edging closer to this as the Black Blood nears completion.]] * MyMasterRightOrWrong - Zhe seems to have this relationship with Medusa. * NervousWreck: Thanks to being raised to become a new Kisin by Medusa. Zhe's even quite jittery when zhe's AxeCrazy. * ParentalAbandonment: Why any ''SoulEater'' fan who looks beyond Medusa's MagnificentBastard status wants to strangle her for being a [[CompleteMonster grievously bad mother]]. * [[Film/MenInBlack Person In]] [[WomanInBlack Black]]: Crona's default outfit. ** [[WomanInWhite Person]] [[ManInWhite In White]]: At the party thrown for hir. * {{Pettanko}}: [[AmbiguousGender Maybe?]] * [[RoseHairedGirl Rose Haired Person]]: Averted in the beginning, but played straight later on. * SanitySlippage: Medusa's gamut of experiments on Crona is solely intended to induce this on hir. [[spoiler:[[GoneHorriblyRight It worked]].]] * [[spoiler:SelfMadeOrphan: And Medusa gives every indication that ''this is what she wanted''.]] * ShrinkingViolet: Kind of a gloomy/creepy version, but still fits. * [[spoiler:SixthRanger]]: [[spoiler:When zhe's a Face.]] * TalkativeLoon: Normally very quiet, but turns into one of these when under Medusa's influence. --> "Oh, okay!

Due to the anime's GeckoEnding that split off after his introductory chapter, Joe plays a different role in it. In the anime, Joe was one of Shibusen's most talented scientists and engineers, and Shinigami pulls him back to Death City to help work on a black ops project involving [[MacGuffin BREW]]. With the exception of his irrational love of coffee, little else of the character's background was kept from the manga. ------ * DemonSlaying: The anti-demon wavelength. Makes him a perfect sensor as a result. * EyesAlwaysShut * MrFixit: In the anime. * MustHaveCaffeine: The first instance of this sets up a piece of hilarious Japanese wordplay. * [[spoiler:SparedByTheAdaptation]] * UnfortunateNames: Seriously, Joe Butt!? ** Actually, it translates to [[AwesomeMcCoolName "Ass-kicking Joe" or "Joe Ass-kicker".]] !!Enrique Tezca Tlipoca's Meister. [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys He's a monkey]]. A monkey that wears clothes, sneakers, and a baseball cap. Mm-hmm. ------ * BoisterousBruiser: It's [[TheUnintelligible difficult to tell]], but Enrique is apparently quite the comedian, as his introduction had him delivering lengthy jokes (and sending Tezcatlipoca into hysterics) ''while Medusa was attacking him''. He's also not above having a laugh at his Weapon's expense. At the same time, he's a Death Scythe meister, and will presumably [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking end you]]. * EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Self-explanatory. * ImprobableWeaponUser: Fights wearing Tezcatlipoca, the Demon Mirror, on his ankle. * TheUnintelligible: He's incapable of saying anything but variations of "Gau," which is partly why he didn't show up at the initial Death Scythe convention. ** Although strangely, Tezca has no problems understanding him. !!Fyodor Tsar Pushka's Meister. ------ * DanceBattler: Specifically, [[ThatRussianSquatDance cossack dancing.]] * ExtremityExtremist * FragileSpeedster * ImprobableWeaponUser: Pushka himself appears to be a giant iron ball on a stick; Fyodor fights by attaching the stick to one leg and launching the ball with the other. * ShoutOut: His name's probably a callback to Dostoyevsky's. * TheWorfEffect !!Heming One of Ahab's annual meisters, and a hunter of madness-inducing [[GiantFlyer sky whales]]. ------ * TheHunter * MeaningfulName: His name comes from American author Ernest Hemingway, who was also a hunter. * StudentAndMasterTeam: With Ahab. * YoungGun: Who rides a literal "Old Gun." !!Old Lady [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin An old lady]] who works as a receptionist at Shibusen and distribute mission requests. ---- * AnimalMotifs: Calls herself a "Gorilla." * BareFistedMonk * BigDamnHeroes: For Kid while on the moon, complete with DynamicEntry. * BoisterousBruiser * ChekhovsGunman: The first time we see her is when she gives Kilik and Ox their mission with the giant. * CoolOldLady * [[spoiler:DroppedABridgeOnHer: Sliced apart and then her soul is absorbed while on the moon.

Despite being so dangerous and powerful, his personality is quite silly. He can also be serious and cunning when needed, but he usually isn't since he can't die. ----- * AnIcePerson: Free uses Ice based magic, but his personality is a little off from the usual. * BigBadassWolf: The whole werewolf deal you know and can be pretty darn badass when he wants to be. * CatchPhrase: He's got at least two: the chant "Wolf, wolves, wolf, wolves," and the more informal [[GratuitousEnglish "GODDAMNSHIIIIT!"]] * CloudCuckooLander: Free originally let himself be imprisoned because he wanted to try to dig his way out of a prison with a spoon, like in the movies... Unfortunately, all the meals were served with chopsticks. * EvilEye. * FantasticRacism: Apparently, Shibusen has mercilessly hunted down werewolves in the past. He's not happy about this. * {{Hologram}}: One of his powers. * {{Immortality}}: Free regenerates from all and any damage and doesn't age. * MagicMisfire: Happened two times during his first fight after 200 years, the second time resulting in him becoming a [[HumanPopsicle Wolfman Popsicle]] * MeaningfulName: Names himself Free after beeing freed by Medusa. * NoNameGiven: Free is known only by his nicknames. So far he has been called (Man of the) Demon Eye, Free & (The Legendary) Werewolf. * NoSenseOfDirection: In the Baba Yaga arc of the manga. He was supposed to destroy tower 1 and he went toward tower 2 instead. In the end he ended up at tower 8. Besides towers 2 and 8 were opposite to each other. He had been in Baba Yaga's Castle for a pretty long time by then... I mean that's just messed up. * NotSoGreatEscape: When Eruka got him out of jail and he was still restrained. He talked pretty darn loud. The guards found out and surrounded them. He then kills them all in about thirty seconds. * OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Voluntary shapeshifting, full control of his mental faculties, just as strong in human form as in wolf form (but no tail or claws/bite) and apparently immortal by nature before he stole Mabaa's eye. * TunnelKing: Free wanted to escape prison using this method but they only gave him chopsticks. * VoluntaryShapeshifting: Free has stated that his werewolf form is his true form. * UnskilledButStrong: After years of imprisonment, let's just say that Free has gotten a little bit... rusty... with his magic skills. At one time, he even manages to encase himself in a block of ice! However, when he does get it right, he's a major threat, not to mention the fact that he can afford to be unskilled due to the fact that he is ''immortal.'' !!Ragnarok http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/24946.jpg -->Voiced by: KeijiHimeno (JP), SonnyStrait (EN) Ragnarok is Crona's Demon Sword partner. He shares a body with his meister and loves to bully and torment him/her at every opportunity. ------ * AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: In the anime [[spoiler: when Crona jumps in front of Medusa's vector attack to save Maka, Ragnarok comes out of the resulting pool of blood yelling that they're both going to die and it's all Maka's fault, "but at least stupid Crona isn't alone in the end."]] * BodyHorror * BloodyMurder: He's Crona's LivingWeapon made out of black blood, after all. * BullyAndWimpPairing: Bully to Crona's wimp. * TheImp * {{Jerkass}}: Has been a pretty consistent one throughout all his different forms. * LivingWeapon: Not only is he able to turn into a sword, he really is ''Crona's blood''. * MakeMeWannaShout: Many of his attacks involve screaming. * PintSizedPowerhouse: He fares pretty well against Giriko and knocks over a golem while in SleepModeSize! Maka even wonders how she was able to defeat him. * SleepModeSize * TalkingWeapon: With giant, fleshy lips, no less. * TokenEvilTeammate: After Crona's HeelFaceTurn. * {{Vibroweapon}}: He vibrates by [[MakeMeWannaShout screaming]]. !!Excalibur http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/37588.jpg -->Voiced by: TakehitoKoyasu (JP), TroyBaker (EN) The legendary sword used by heroes and kings. In spite of his immense powers, Excalibur hardly ever has a meister because no one can put up with his unbearably grating, loudmouthed, egomaniac personality. He usually resides in a cave full of fairies, who also can't stand him. ----- * AbsurdlySharpBlade: [[BeyondTheImpossible Can cut through Dimensions.]] * [[AwesomeButImpractical Awesome But]] [[TheScrappy Intolerable]] * CanonImmigrant[=/=]AscendedMeme: The "Excalibur Song" was originally made for a filler episode in the anime. It eventually found its way into the manga, where Excalibur was able to torment even more people with it. * CaptainErsatz: Excalibur's character design is pretty much ripped right off from ''TheMoomins''. * CatchPhrase: "'''{{BAKA}}ME/[[YouFool FOOL!]]'''", and "My legend began in/dates back to the 12th century". * CloudCuckooLander ** TheCuckoolanderWasRight / DumbassHasAPoint: Towards to the end of the anime, he [[WisdomFromTheGutter gives out some info during the fight against Asura]] and [[spoiler:[[WhatTheHellHero calls Azusa on fighting Asura without a meister]]]]... in between being a CloudCuckoolander of the nth degree. * {{Earworm}}: [[GratuitousEnglish "Excalibur... Excalibur... From United King, I'm looking for him, I'm going to Californiaaa~"]] ** OverlyLongGag: "How long is this torture going to last?..." * [[spoiler:EldritchAbomination]]: [[spoiler:It's implied that he's a Great Old One and possibly the representation of the Madness of Rage. The cover spread of [[http://www.mangareader.net/soul-eater/77/2 chapter 77]] possibly shows him alongside Shinigami, Asura, Eibon and The Black Mass, all of whom are confirmed eldritch horrors (second from the left).]] * FearlessFool: More in the anime, where he's pretty much the only one that isn't afraid of Asura's power. ** Justified since he is that powerful. * HilarityEnsues: Whether you love Excalibur or hate him, words cannot describe how hilarious [[http://read.mangashare.com/Soul-Eater/chapter-074/page021.html this]] is, immediately followed by [[http://read.mangashare.com/Soul-Eater/chapter-074/page030.html this]]. And before you ask, that is Black Star. * HeyItsThatVoice: Excalibur is '''''[[{{Naruto}} Pain]]'''''?! ** [[DeadpanSnarker Yes]]. [[IncrediblyLamePun Yes it certainly is]]. ** The Japanese version, meanwhile, is... Well, ''[[ManOfAThousandVoices everybody]]''. * InfinityPlusOneSword: Is actually the most powerful weapon in existence... '''''if''''' you're willing to take his absurd crap. ** Some of the known abilities he grants his wielder are Heavenly Wings, light speed movement, and the ability to slash everything with ''[[StuffBlowingUp gigantic explosions of golden fire]]''. When Liz used him (briefly) in the Book of Eibon, he was able to cut a large hole '''through another dimension'''. * ItsAllAboutMe: Oh ''hell'' yes. * JerkAss: He's so friggin annoying it makes sense why the only people who can wield him can be called kings and heroes, King Arthur must've been a saint. ** I can almost see why the Lady of the Lake wanted to get rid of him. She may have recognized Arthur's leadership skills and his ability to withstand and work with any persona, no matter how extreme. Of course, I'm just guessing. ** According to the anime, he was a lot more coherent in King Arthur's day. And also had a cool beard. Apparently his sanity is directly proportional to his amount of facial hair. ** Note that in his first appearance, Excalibur was willing to cut his list of 1,000 requirements down to 800 in return for being wielded as a weapon by Kid or Star. Presumably, a sufficiently persuasive Meister could negotiate him down to something manageable. ** Also note, that in the Book of Eibon he was willing to lend his power to good guys with no requirements (in the Eibon Chapter Pride, they were too proud to accept his offer). It is not impossible that he merely put on a JerkAssFacade to scare off meisters who want to use him for petty reasons. *** Ironic that in the Chapter of Pride, '''HE''' was humble enough to offer his services. * LargeHam: Picking TakehitoKoyasu for his Japanese voice role and TroyBaker for his English couldn't possibly have been unintentional. And yes, they overact like hell and obviously had fun doing it. * PhraseCatcher: "SO ANNOYING!" * PublicDomainArtifact * RunningGag: The [[http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/227/1287208133569.png 'I-Have-Met-Excalibur' face]]. * SmugSmiler: Sort of. * TedBaxter: He's the most powerful weapon, true. But it is absolutely impossible for anything to be as great as he makes himself out to be. * TheScrappy: An in-universe example (and a BaseBreaker on the audience). He's so ungodly annoying that he causes the exact same pained facial expression in everyone who meets him. [[http://www.mangareader.net/soul-eater/74/25 This includes]] [[spoiler:the Book of Eibon's Table of Contents]], which ''[[BeyondTheImpossible doesn't have a face]].'' ** Another example is that Black☆Star's {{leitmotif}} involves a line specifically underlining that he can't stand Excalibur. This in [[ItsAllAboutMe Black☆Star]]'s {{leitmotif}}. The fact that he took time out of praising himself just to single out someone he doesn't like speaks volumes. * SecretTestOfCharacter: Almost every question that comes out of his mouth is a SecretTestOfCharacter...that only makes sense to him. * ShooOutTheClowns: Inverted. He comes back for the climax in the anime, despite everyone's (both villain and hero) best attempts at ignoring him. * TalkativeLoon * TalkingWeapon: And singing... and dancing... and ''never shutting up''... !!Giriko http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/33707.jpg -->Voiced by: NobutoshiCanna (JP), JMichaelTatum (EN) Giriko is a Demon Weapon and an ally to the witch Arachne. He lives for fighting and destruction, and takes the form of a chainsaw in weapon form. ----- * AxCrazy: Is he ever. * {{Badass}} * BloodKnight: [[spoiler: In fact he's BeyondTheImpossible with this, that he literally dies from his soul exploding because it couldn't contain 800 years of pent-up bloodlust anymore.]] * ChainsawGood: He ''is'' the chainsaw. * ClusterFBomb * CurtainsMatchTheWindow * EvilCounterpart: At first he appears to be this to [[TheRival Justin Law]] up until [[spoiler:Justin's FaceHeelTurn]]. An argument could also be made that he's the evil counterpart of either [[HandsomeLech Spirit]] or more recently [[ByronicHero Soul]]. ** Both Soul and Giriko have jagged teeth, AnimeHair, an insane amount of loyalty toward one person, and some form of attraction toward Maka. For Giriko, it manifests itself in extreme FoeYay and eventually [[spoiler: LesYay]]. For Soul, it comes in the form of [[VitriolicBestBuds a weird]] but ''extremely'' loyal friendship and various amounts of ShipTease. * [[spoiler:{{Gender Bender}}]]: [[spoiler:Since his latest kid was a girl he had no choice but to transport his mind into her, effectively changing genders.]] * FoeYay: Admits he has some for Maka. [[spoiler:Considering he was a girl by then, it also counts LesYay]]. Let the InterplayOfSexAndViolence begin! * TheHedonist: He drinks in every other chapter, he's lazy as sin, and he acts [[http://mangastream.com/read/soul_eater/76853218/9 touchy-feely with the teenage girl]] he's attempting to massacre. ** Whoa, he's like the EvilCounterpart of [[HandsomeLech Spirit]]. * {{Immortality}} ** [[spoiler:He may have been able to swap bodies and memories to remain alive, but [[KarmicDeath 800 years of pent-up bloodlust does NOT have its benefits to the soul]]]]. * ImmortalityImmorality: Implanting your memories into your artificially created children? A little bit creepy. * InterplayOfSexAndViolence: The [[IncrediblyLamePun longer]] his fight goes on with Maka, the more it descends into this. It gets to the point that you could replace "chainsaw" with "penis" and it would make just as much sense. * {{Jerkass}} * [[spoiler:KarmicDeath]]: [[spoiler:Giriko's sole desire in life, to unleash his bloodlust that was pent-up for 800 years, becomes his downfall when his soul is unable to withstand it any longer and EXPLODES.]] ** Horrifying enough, he [[FoeYay DOES]] entertain an interest in doing just that. [[spoiler:[[KarmicDeath Then, he dies.]]]] ** Just... just [[http://www.mangareader.net/157-54969-8/soul-eater/chapter-75.html see this]]. What he tells [[spoiler:Maka]] right after [[spoiler:pining her to the floor by her wrists]] REALLY doesn't help his case. * MyMasterRightOrWrong: Towards Arachne. * NotSoDifferent: A [[{{Badass}} Deathscythe-level]] bladed weapon who's [[UndyingLoyalty almost suicidally devoted]] to [[ActionGirl a woman much more powerful/skilled/smarter]] than he is, with [[SlasherSmile jagged teeth]]... Wait, are we talking about [[ChainsawGood Giriko]] and [[HotWitch Arachne]], or [[SinisterScythe Soul]] and [[CuteBruiser Maka]]? * PsychoForHire * [[spoiler:RoaringRampageOfRevenge]]: [[spoiler:Towards Maka and Soul for Arachne's death]]. * RollerbladeGood: Can use the chainsaws on his feet to work like this. * [[spoiler:SelfDisposingVillain]]: [[spoiler:See Karmic Death]] * SlasherSmile * {{Steampunk}}: Arguably a motif. * ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: Is quite fond of this trope. * UndyingLoyalty: For Arachne. * UnknownRival: To Justin, [[spoiler:before joining him]]. * UnstoppableRage: In the "Salvage" arc, his anger and energy was so tremendous that it made him practically untouchable; the air around him was a whirling death trap of chainsaw blades, while the "noise" from his soul made Soul's piano worthless. * VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:Hasn't taken the death of Arachne very well at all.]] * {{Yandere}}: For Arachne. ** [[spoiler:After her death, Giriko proceeded to try to rape Maka and then attempted to kill both her and Soul, ranting about how they had to die because of what they had done to her.]] !!Masamune http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/38743.jpg -->Voiced by: HiroshiTsuchida (JP), KyleHebert (EN) A demon blade called the Uncanny Sword and Tsubaki's estranged older brother, resenting her for being a more gifted weapon than he. ------ * AloofBigBrother * {{Badass}} * EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette * EvilWeapon - One possible state of the demon blade form; possessing people, acts of violence, and soul-destroying all present while Masamune had that particular Weapon form. * EmoTeen: Has the appearence of one at the very least. * KatanasAreJustBetter * [[LonersAreFreaks Loners are Evil]] - Probably ''not'' a coincidence that Masamune went mad while alone and misunderstood, whilst Tsubaki's partnership with a meister (first from the family to join Shibusen) has allowed her to [[spoiler:unlock the 'true' form of the demon blade]]. * PeoplePuppets * UncannyFamilyResemblance: He's a male version of Tsubaki, to put it bluntly. * TheUnfavorite * YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: He seems rather fond of talking like this. !!Mosquito http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/38749.jpg -->Voiced by: TakashiInagaki (JP), MarkStoddard (EN) Mosquito is Arachne's butler. His appearance is a short old man with a large pointy nose which is used to suck the blood out of a victim. ------ * BadassGrandpa: Until he pulls off the BishounenLine. * {{Battle Butler}}: For Arachne. * BishounenLine: Aparently, Mosquito was very popular with the ladies 600 years ago. ** Considering he kind of looks like a bishounen Dracula, [[VampiresAreSexGods that's probably true]]. * TheDragon * ShoutOut: His "Police Stinger" is reference to both the band "The Band" and its lead singer, Sting. !!Kishin Asura http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ashurakishin_1_9012.jpg -->Voiced by: ToshioFurukawa (JP), ChrisPatton (EN) The strongest and most dangerous antagonist in ''SoulEater'', and the first demon god. He was supposedly once human, a meister and Death's apprentice who ate his own weapon partner after going insane with fear. Before the start of the series, he was defeated by Shinigami-sama and [[SealedEvilInACan imprisoned]]. However he is eventually released and begins to spread "madness" throughout the world. ----- * APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil * BigBad: In the anime version at least, still open for debate in the manga though. ** BiggerBad: Bigger than Arachne, potentially bigger than Medusa. * {{Bishounen}}: He can be quite pretty when not making {{Nightmare Face}}s. * DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Attacking the bystanders in the Death Room to force Shinigami to [[TakingTheBullet take the 'bullet']] [[TearJerker himself]]. Also, interrupting Kid's longer-than-usual transformation sequence by skewering him. ** Also when he realizes he's [[spoiler:[[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove started to feel something for Arachne]], he kills her to keep anyone from using her against him]]. * DirtyCoward: Shinigami describes him as this. * DissonantSerenity: Especially in the anime, he can be disturbingly calm at times. He doesn't even bat an eyelid at Shinigami's threats to skin him alive ''again''. * EldritchAbomination: [[spoiler:It's been stated in the manga that he is a "Great Old One", along with the other Eight Warlords, he himself implied to be the "AnthropomorphicPersonification of the Madness of Terror."]] ** HumanoidAbomination * [[spoiler:EvilCannotComprehendGood]]: [[spoiler:Asura is defeated in the anime because he cannot comprehend the concept of courage.]] * EvilEye * EyesDoNotBelongThere: Not on your hands, your forehead, and ''especially'' not ''[[BeyondTheImpossible inside]]'' your normal eyes! * FateWorseThanDeath: Having your skin ripped off and turned into a bag with which to seal your soul for all eternity. No wonder he's even crazier when he comes out. * FreakOut: His original one was what caused him to become the first Kishin. * GigglingVillain: Extremely high-pitched and disturbing. * HannibalLecture: In the anime he gives one to Shinigami ([[CasualDangerDialogue while beating each other to a pulp]]) and another to Maka. * ImprobableWeaponUser: A vajra that fires laser beams? * InstantRunes: Summons them by clapping his hands. * LimpAndLivid: Pretty much his default way of moving, although to be honest, he has to learn to walk all over again. By the end of the anime he's standing upright. * MadGod * MeaningfulName: "Asura" are minor Buddhist gods, associated with violence and mad desire. * NoSell: In the anime, everybody's attacks are rendered useless against him. * OneWingedAngel: His giant True Kishin form in the anime. Although from there he reverts back into an even more powerful human shape. * RedEyesTakeWarning * ScarfOfAssKicking: His primary weapon, which can easily impale you. Plus they're made of his own skin. * [[SealedEvilInACan Sealed Madness In A Can]] * SlasherSmile: Not with great regularity, but being madness incarnate and all it's no surprise how well he can pull them off. * {{Ubermensch}}: Anime-only, from his ReasonYouSuckSpeech to Shinigami-Sama in Episode 48, he can be seen as this. * VillainousBreakdown: He's so paranoid and fearful that he has these at the drop of a hat, but his one at the end was a topper. !!Noah http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/33712.jpg The 3rd BigBad of the series, Noah originally appeared to being working for Arachne, until it's revealed that his true goal is to use the Book of Eibon to absorb and "collect" everything, which he feels in essence would make him "everything". [[spoiler: In truth, he's not actually human, but a projection from the Book of Eibon used to carry out its will.]] ----- * [[spoiler:ArtificialHuman: After he gets killed, the "Table Of Contents" in the Book of Eibon reveals he was a manifestation of the Greed chapter, called a "statue." Another one is sent out, this time of the Wrath chapter, thus leading to...]] ** [[spoiler:TheNthDoctor]] * BigCreepyCrawlies: His personal magic revolves around caterpillars and centipedes. On {{nightmare fuel}}. * TheCollector: He decided to add [[spoiler:Kid]] to his TomeOfEldritchLore along with anything else he finds interesting. ** CollectorOfTheStrange: Such "interesting" things include demons, sins, and a massive, inky abomination calling itself a [[EldritchAbomination Great Old One]]. *** He also collected [[spoiler:Excalibur. Freaking "He's So Annoying Everything Wants To Kill Him" Excalibur]]. You do ''NOT'' get stranger than that. * DissonantSerenity: Never shows anything stronger than mild irritation, [[spoiler:even when he's sucking people up into his book]]. * FlatCharacter: Noah wants to collect everything... and that's about all we get. He's got four or five separate [[MotiveRant Motive Rants]] amounting to exactly this. ** There's a reason for this. [[spoiler:Because he's nothing but a projection from the "Greed" chapter of the Book of Eibon.]] * GreatBigBookOfEverything[=/=]TomeOfEldritchLore: The book of Eibon. He thinks by collecting everything in the world that [[AGodAmI he will become a god]]. * LegacyCharacter: It would seem Noah would at least ''like'' to be something this, as he's used Eibon's name for "brand recognition", as mentioned above. * LetsGetDangerous: With GlowingEyesOfDoom and InstantRunes to go with it. ** When he twists his cap around, he's ''really'' decided to get serious. * TheMinionMaster: When he actually decides to get serious, he fights by summoning hordes of monsters and artifacts from the Book of Eibon. These include giant worms, flying gremlins, a Cyclops, ''tentacles with faces, a three-headed dragon with a cemetery on its back and each head wearing the mask of a famous slasher film star, and '''MICHELANGELO'S DAVID.''''' * NeverFoundTheBody: Strongly implied to have disappeared into the Book of Eibon at the end of his battle against Kid. * NiceHat * NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: [[spoiler:Stein, Sid, Marie, Nygus and Tezca]] never stood a chance. * OneManArmy: [[spoiler:As Spartoi found out.]] !!The Great Old One/The Black Mass The above mentioned abomination sealed with Noah's Book of Eibon. [[spoiler:It claims that it was one of the Eight Warlords, along with Shinigami, Ashura, Eibon, and that those eight are and were truly beings known as the Great Old Ones, "existences which drive men to madness", to paraphrase the thing.]] It can give power at the cost of one's sanity, similar to the effects of Black Blood. ----- * AmbiguousGender: It's a massive, inky black mass, and only ''very'' vaguely humanoid. So it seems safe to say that Atshushi is justified in ''this'' case. * EldritchAbomination: See for [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110402163345/souleater/images/thumb/7/74/Soul-eater-1211017.jpg/435px-Soul-eater-1211017.jpg yourself]]. Also, see what it calls itself. * FanNickname: Its title is often shortened to "GOO", which, nicely enough, also describes its apparent form quite well, other fans simply call it The Black Mass. * [[spoiler:[[{{ItsAllMyFault}} It's All Our Fault]]]]: [[spoiler: It states that the Great Old Ones' very existence influenced madness and that they were ultimately responsible for the madness that was Asura.]] * NoNameGiven: He only refers himself as one of the Great Old Ones. * PowerAtAPrice: As stated above, he can give people power at the cost of their sanity, throwing them into madness. * [[spoiler:SecretTestOfCharacter]] * [[spoiler:TheReveal]]: [[spoiler:"''Fragment of the Madness of Law... Fragment... of Shinigami."]] * SealedEvilInACan[=/=]SealedGoodInACan: Though reasons for how and why aren't clear, it seems to be existing within the Book of Eibon and though it starts out antagonizing, its alliance is ultimately sort of ambiguous. ** It's also staying there by choice, for its own vague reasons, and has the power to get out any time. !!Gopher http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/63266.jpg Gopher has a rather aggressive and violent nature, especially if it is concerning insults made towards Noah, whom he is both extremely protective over and obsessed about. Gopher personally believes that he is the only one who can satisfy Noah. Justin also describes Gopher as always being uptight. He later demonstrates a tendency to bite his top lip whenever he becomes enraged. ----- * CrazyJealousGuy * DeathGlare: Subverted; he tries, but just achieves a [[{{Narm}} ridiculously pouty inverted-V face]]. Unfortunately for Death the Kid, his pout is silly, but [[BerserkButton asymmetrical]]. ** It doesn't look asymmetrical at first, but Kid could see the differences, they're near microscopic. * DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: His face on [[http://www.mangareader.net/157-34060-14/soul-eater/chapter-65.html this page]]. Wow, just... wow. * FanNickname: Waffles. * LargeHam: "NOAH-SAMAAAAAAAAA!" * LoveMartyr: Again, to Noah. * {{Yandere}}: To the point of parody. Gopher seems to think ''everyone'' is a rival for "Noah-sama's" affection. !!Table of Contents (TOC) A small, unassuming creature that acts as a guide inside the Book of Eibon, leading its visitors through the book's chapters until they reach enlightenment or madness. [[spoiler: It's actually the book's "intelligence" and Noah's puppetmaster, and desires to take the Kishin for itself so it can "educate" the world with Asura's madness.]] * AffablyEvil: Its motivations certainly aren't good, but it's still polite, helpful, and true to its word. * EldritchAbomination: A relatively minor and benign one. * EvilMentor: [[spoiler: It wants to be one of these for the ''whole world,'' corrupting everything with the knowledge and secrets that Eibon locked away.]] * [[spoiler:Madness Mantra]]: [[spoiler: A quite epic one:]] --> [[spoiler:"I want to give guidance.

Maka and Soul first encountered it in a twisted factory where it tried to drive them both insane, but they defeated it with Maka's anti-demon wavelength. It escaped, and has since allied itself with Noah's team and with Justin Law in particular. Recently, Medusa has [[spoiler:taken to creating her own artificial Clowns: the Black Clown, which has similar capabilities to the original, and the Violet Clown, a "portable" model shaped like a crescent moon that defends her from insanity and amplifies her attacks]]. ------ * TheCorruption: It and the Black Clown spread insanity just by existing. ** In turn, the Clowns rise from the corruption of Asura's insanity. [[spoiler: Asura's dwelling is ''packed'' with them.]] * EldritchAbomination * ItGotWorse: There is now a bunch of these things running around. * MindRape: Pulls a particularly nasty one on Maka. * MonsterClown: On top of being scary as hell, its body is so twisted that it's barely recognizable as a clown at all. Presumably, one look at it would make Death the Kid's head explode. * Mooks: [[spoiler: Asura has his own army of Clowns.]] ** EliteMooks: [[spoiler: Gekkou, Shirahoshi and Kaguya are basically this, since they are more powerful than the other Clowns and have their own powers.

[[spoiler:She succeeds.]] ----- * ActionGirl * [[spoiler:AllMenArePerverts]]: [[spoiler:Out of all the {{genderswap}}ped girls, Maka's the only one to get a nosebleed. [[NotSoAboveItAll Coincidence]]]]? ** [[spoiler:Made even better by [[AttractiveBentGender Soul]] lampshading it]]. * AlmightyJanitor: [[spoiler:Not anymore, since Soul is a Death Scythe now]]. * AwesomeByAnalysis: by chapter 76 she and Soul pull a CMOA via this trope. * [[spoiler:AxCrazy]]: [[spoiler:Under the effect of the black blood when fighting Crona]]. * BackToBackBadasses: With Black Star. * BadassAdorable * BadassBookworm: Soul is her weapon of choice. Her second favorite weapon? A nice, hard [[ThrowTheBookAtThem book]]. * BadassInDistress: What Maka went through [[spoiler: in the Envy and Sloth chapters]]. She seems to be back to action now that [[spoiler: she's determined to save Crona even when everyone thinks s/he's hopeless now]], though [[RealWomenNeverWearDresses it didn't stop some people]] from crying "{{Chickification}}". * BadassLongcoat * BattleBallgown[=/=]KickingAssInAllHerFinery: [[spoiler:The BlackBlood dress armor]]. * BerserkButton: In the anime, after she befriends Crona, hurting Crona is her berserk button. An example, [[spoiler:during the final fight with Medusa in the anime, Crona gets badly injured trying to protect Maka. Maka then unleashed a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on Medusa. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrgVSogcqpo See it here]]]]. ** More specifically, ''Medusa'' sets off a BerserkButton in Maka for what she did to Crona. Maka also finds Medusa extremely frustrating to deal with, especially since Maka seems to want to find the best in everyone. ** Soul getting hurt is also one, especially if she's the reason he gets hurt, although to a lesser degree. The most obvious is their in their initial fight with Crona. The next time they meet, she beats the ''shit'' outta the kid, before [[DefeatMeansFriendship befriending]] [[AmbiguousGender him/her]] of course. * ButNotTooForeign: Is half-Japanese * CatchPhrase: "I'll take your soul." Or something similar. ** "'''Maka...CHOP!'''" Mostly anime. * ChildhoodFriends: With Black*Star * CooldownHug: With Crona. * CountryMatters: In the Hungarian dub. * CryCute: Well, Maka is usually a tough girl, but...[[http://www.mangareader.net/157-51436-11/soul-eater/chapter-74.html just look]]. Might count as {{moe}}, too. * CuteBruiser * DangerouslyShortSkirt * DemonSlaying: One of the few characters gifted with the sought-after anti-demon wavelength. As a result, she's extremely sensitive to anything "demonic" and extremely effective at killing anything "demonic". * {{Determinator}} PluckyGirl: Eventually. When she ''does'' become it though, the only thing that can stop her is unconsciousness or death. Really. This is more focused on in the manga [[spoiler:particularly when fighting against the mad clown and destroying Arachne]], where her absolute grim determination tops everything else (in the anime they changed it to "courage"). ** The manga has Arachne stating that courage cannot win every battle. Considering Maka's current dilemma [[spoiler:in the Book of Eibon]], it looks like she had a point; ''bravery'' isn't the problem here. ** Nope, by chapter 75, she fixes it with determination/courage. *** Actually deconstructed, because she finds it by accepting that she needs to work with Soul in order to win, overcoming the influences of the Book. It wasn't purely about standing up to the bad guy. * DoesNotLikeMen: Due to her issues with her father. ** It's not quite extended to men in general. Only the ones who act inappropriately get Maka-Chopped or otherwise punished. Some, like Stein, Kid, Soul to [[VitriolicBestBuds an extent]] Maka has little problem with. * DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: At least to some, Maka's [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning scythe-spinning]] is reminiscent of color guard flag-spinning. * EverythingsBetterWithSpinning * ExpressiveHair: In the anime her pigtails stand up and/or wiggle when she's agitated. * {{Fanservice}}: While Maka was mainly an aversion of this starting from the first chapter, recent color pages have been showing her...um...[[IncrediblyLamePun development]]. Especially with the color page of Square Enix for Chapter 77, where her outfit looks quite similar to ''[[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Yoko's]]''. ** Or maybe BlackRockShooter * FourTemperamentEnsemble: Choleric. * [[spoiler:GenderBender]]: [[spoiler:Along with the rest of the Spartoi]] * GenerationXerox: Somewhat, with her mother. * GirlishPigtails * [[spoiler:GreenEyedMonster]]: [[spoiler:The Envy Chapter forces Maka to acknowledge her envy of the other meisters who want to be Soul's partner, people like Liz who can appreciate music with Soul, and music itself]]. * GreenEyes * HalfHumanHybrid: Her mother is a human while her father is a weapon. Slightly averted in that she doesn't seem to be any different to other humans. (Well to be fair, in ''SoulEater'' the "weapons" are just people with the special power to transform. They're still human.) ** [[spoiler:In the anime, she can unlock a weapon form while she's asleep]]. * {{Hammerspace}}: Where ''does'' that book come from? * {{The Hero}}ine * [[spoiler:HeroicSelfDeprecation]]: [[spoiler:Maka has a ''lot'' of secret insecurities about her strength as a meister. Something of a Tear Jerker in how it came about, illustrated by her seeming inability to pull of one of her signature moves, and coming after a period of Maka having gained much greater confidence and increased ability in the areas which troubled her earlier on; see how she handles both Arachne and Gopher]]. * {{Improbable Weapon User}}: Might not be as outlandish as other characters' cases [[spoiler:(e.g. Kim fights with something identified as a ''lamp'' and Kilik with twin ''pots'')]], but if you consider that a scythe is a legitimate agricultural hand tool, this could be applicable. * [[spoiler:{{Joshikousei}}]]: [[spoiler:In the manga, after becoming part of Spartoi]]. * LamarckWasRight: She gains the ability of Demon Hunter, which was created by her mother. ** This is the case, as with the demonslayer wavelength, only in the anime. The manga doesn't (...or has yet to) make this connection between Maka's rare skills and her mother. ** Also in the anime [[spoiler: her weapon form]] * LetsGetDangerous: Does this a lot after becoming part of Spartoi. Particularly when she learns to fly. At first she creates these [[PreciousPuppies cute fluffy wings]] that she's determined to keep (Soul, naturally, hates them)... and then the bad guys show up. The cute fluffy wings change into something else rather quickly. * MagicSkirt: In the anime. * {{Odango}}: Temporarily donned this while studying for the exams * [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou The Only One Allowed to Face You]]: [[spoiler:Maka to Crona after hir FaceHeelTurn and complete descent into madness. She's so determined to get Crona back to hir senses that, while hunting for hir along with a few other Spartoi members in Italy, she pretends not to know where Crona is when she's actually found hir right away, and sends the others on a WildGooseChase to ensure their confrontation remains one-on-one; she even goes without Soul. The only ones aware of her determination (Soul, Black Star, and Tsubaki) respect her decision to fight alone, but make themselves available in case things go south.]] * OpenTheIris: Averted with her normally invisible pupils becoming visible when emotionally shocked. * PantyShot: Source for this in the manga. Not a very ''reliable'' source, mind you - the fan service in general gets toned down as the series progresses, and Maka was never exactly MissFanservice to begin with. The anime averts this, however, instead using the MagicSkirt trope. * {{Pettanko}}: Compared to the other girls in the cast, anyway. And this anxiety is played-up in the manga. ** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by the cast in chapter 72, where [[spoiler:everyone [[GenderBender turns into the opposite gender]] and Maka's friends note that Maka hasn't changed a bit..]]. *** Which is hilarious when you consider that Soul, who [[TheLancer often mocks her for this]], [[spoiler: turns into a [[AllMenArePerverts prudish]], bossy, [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial flat-chested]] girl]]. * [[spoiler:PowerGivesYouWings]] * PrecisionFStrike: Both in the Hungarian dub, which has plenty of {{Cluster F Bomb}}ing. Her first was "I'm gonna kick... HER ASS!" The other one was [[CountryMatters "Go crawl into a cunt!"]] * SailorFuku: [[spoiler:After joining Spartoi]] * SheCleansUpNicely (As seen in the BallroomBlitz-esque episode) * ShesGotLegs: The anime especially likes to remind us of this. * ShipTease: With Soul. And ''how''. The Wikia entries for both [[http://souleater.wikia.com/wiki/Maka_Albarn Maka]] and [[http://souleater.wikia.com/wiki/Soul_Eater_Evans Soul]] make it explicitly clear, no matter what [[WordOfGod Ohkubo]] [[LyingCreator says]] (as if his ''throwing himself on top of her'' to protect her from certain death and her worry that other ''female'' meisters might be better suited weren't hint enough): --> It is hinted that the two may share romantic feelings towards each other, although it is never stated in general. * SignificantAnagram: Maka is an anagram of 'kama', which means 'scythe' in Japanese. * SlasherSmile * SuperpoweredEvilSide ** WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: The Black Blood. *** LaughingMad: When under the influence of the The Black Blood, especially in the anime. * [[ThrowTheBookAtThem Throw The Book At Soul]]: Maka Chop! * TookALevelInBadass: The demon-hunter. This thing [[spoiler:kills witches and ''insanity'']]. If that doesn't count as BadAss, I don't know what does. * VitriolicBestBuds: Her and Soul. !!Soul Eater (Evans) http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/34721.jpg -->Voiced by: KoukiUchiyama (JP), SoichiroHoshi (JP - CD dramas), MicahSolusod (EN) Maka's snarky Demon Scythe partner, who constantly strives to be a "cool" guy, with mixed success. He's also a talented pianist, but suffers some resentment towards his more gifted violinist brother, Wes. ----- * AcheyScars - Chapter 83 has his scar from Ragnarok aching, due to Medusa's experiments with Crona's black blood. * AlwaysSaveTheGirl * [[spoiler:AttractiveBentGender]]: [[spoiler:Gives Tsubaki and the female half of the fandom a StupidSexyFlanders moment]]. * [[spoiler:AxCrazy: When the black blood [[SanitySlippage decides to act up]] in chapters 83 and 84.]] * ByronicHero: By Stein's analysis, his aura indicates a "dark, negative and cynical person." * CatchPhrase: Seems to have a preference for using the word "Cool". * CharacterTitle * [[spoiler:CodeName]]: [[spoiler:possibly since in SoulEaterNot it is stated that Shibusen/DWMA students can chooses their own name]]. * CoolBike * DeadpanSnarker * [[spoiler:DealWithTheDevil]]: [[spoiler:Happens when he gets infected by the Black Blood, which manifests itself as a devil in his head that offers him power in exchange for his sanity]]. ** [[spoiler:Maka and Soul eventually give in to this so that they can defeat Crona and just barely regain their sanity]]. * EmbarrassingMiddleName: Subverted. He doesn't like it when people use his ''last'' name. * [[spoiler: EvenTheGirlsWantHer]]: A very strange example: [[spoiler: boy!Tsubaki thinks female!Soul is really cute. Sure she's a he at the time but it's still a female brain]]. * [[HairDecorations Every Boy Is Cuter With Hair Decs]] * FourTemperamentEnsemble: Phlegmatic. * [[spoiler:GenderBender]]: [[spoiler:Along with the rest of the Spartoi]]. * [[spoiler:GreenEyedMonster]]: [[spoiler:The Envy Chapter shows us that Soul, despite all he has accomplished as a Weapon, still envies his brother Wes's superior musical talent]]. * HeroicWillpower: [[spoiler:He got his chest ''chain sawed'' and still got back up!]] * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Black☆Star * TheLancer * {{Leitmotif}} * MeaningfulName: Might be named after Bill Evans, a prominent 20th century jazz pianist. * MusicalAssassin * {{Nosebleed}}: Whenever Blair's around. * NounVerber * [[spoiler:PowerGivesYouWings]] * RedEyesTakeWarning * [[spoiler:SanitySlippage]] - After a period where it seemed the SuperpoweredEvilSide held no danger, this one is back in chapter 83 thanks to him being near black blood. * SarcasticDevotee: To Maka * ScarsAreForever: After getting this, becomes shirtless in weapon form. * [[{{SwordBeam}} Scythe Beams]]: Can do this * ShapeshifterWeapon * SharpDressedMan: Soul looks really good in a black pin-striped suit. * ShipTease: See Maka's entry. * ShirtlessScene: During the exam episode, and sometimes when in weapon form. * SinisterScythe * SlasherSmile: A rare heroic example. But it's more from his teeth being inexplicably jagged than anything else. * SuperpoweredEvilSide ** WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: The Black Blood. * TalkingWeapon * VitriolicBestBuds: Him and Maka. * WhiteHairedPrettyBoy: The "Pretty" part may depend. ** Has only become more apparent in the manga over the {{Art Evolution}} it's undergone. Compare his initial appearance in [[http://www.mangareader.net/157-10147-16/soul-eater/chapter-2.html earlier chapters]] to [[http://www.mangareader.net/soul-eater/84/26 this.]] ** [[spoiler:Definitely in Lust chapter... but as a WhiteHairedPrettyGirl. According to Tsubaki. And many fans]]. !!Black☆Star http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/26648.jpg -->Voiced by: YumikoKobayashi (JP, anime and CD dramas), BrittneyKarbowski (EN) A loud-mouthed ninja who doesn't seem to grasp [[HighlyVisibleNinja the concept]] [[WithCatlikeTread of stealth]], Black☆Star is a perpetual show-off whose stated goal in life is to surpass God. He is Tsubaki's meister. ----- * TheAce: Frequently lampshaded. The only thing that holds him back from succeeding in every mission is his own need to show off. * AlmightyJanitor: After the [[spoiler:Book of Eibon arc]], Death the Kid hails Black☆Star as the [[spoiler:strongest meister in Shibusen]], and yet Black☆Star is far from [[spoiler:promoting Tsubaki to a Death Scythe]] or be recognized by the masses that [[spoiler:he indeed is the strongest]]. * AnimeHair[=/=]ShounenHair * AntiHero * AttentionWhore ('''SO VERY MUCH.''') ** [[spoiler:Not any more]] * BackToBackBadasses: With both Maka and Death the Kid. * {{Badass}} * BewareTheSillyOnes * BigEater * TheBigGuy (Well, he DOES use force a lot and his ego ''is'' big, so...) ** [[spoiler:He is the strongest member of Spartoi.]] * BlasphemousBoast ** BadassBoast: When he gets serious. * BoisterousBruiser * CatchPhrase: "I am the man who will surpass god!" and "YAH-HOO!" * CharacterDevelopment: Especially in the manga. * ChewingTheScenery: Any damage to the scenery is probably the result of Black☆Star chewing on it. * ChildhoodFriends: With Maka * CrossdressingVoices: He's voiced by a woman in both the Japanese and English versions. ** But not in the Hungarian dub...which actually makes him ''slightly'' more tolerable. * CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: When Black☆Star actually shuts up, he's able to fight well. * DarkIsNotEvil * DeadlyUpgrade: The Shadow☆Star. ** [[spoiler:He gets better.]] * {{Determinator}} * {{Expy}}. ''Freaking {{Naruto}}''. The similar personality, back story, power up-grades etc. (just see down the list of tropes) can be a bit of a BaseBreaker in some circles. It's also been suggested that Black☆Star is meant to be an exaggerated deconstruction of the whole Naruto-personality-thing, but if you compare Black☆Star with the [[CharacterDevelopment current Naruto]], you'd probably cock your head to the side. ** Who else immediately thought of [[GuiltyGear Chipp Zanuff]] when he first saw Black☆Star? * FearlessFool * FourTemperamentEnsemble: Sanguine. * [[spoiler:GenderBender]]: [[spoiler:Along with the rest of the Spartoi]]. ** [[spoiler:BigBreastsBigDeal]]: [[spoiler:Temporarily, after the [[GenderBender gender switch]] in chapter 74 and being who [[LargeHam he is]] [[ManIFeelLikeAWoman he must point it out]].]] * [[AGodAmI A God I Will Surpass]] * GoodOldFisticuffs: At times * GreenEyes * GroinAttack: Ahh Angela Leon, as you would say, "Got you right in the balls!" * HardHead: He fell thousands of feet '''HEAD FIRST''' and that didn't faze him. * HellishPupils: His pupils turn gold and star-shaped later on. ** [[spoiler: They've recently turned blue.]] * HighPressureBlood: That may spray out even through his ''hair''. * HighlyVisibleNinja[=/=]IncomingHam * IdiotHero * InsistentTerminology: The ☆ in his name, all mentions (and I mean ''all'') to him in the manga has the '''star''' on it, scanlators or other circles may excuse themselves with an asterisk sometimes, but in the original publication the ☆ will always be there. * IHaveTheHighGround: He loves this one. Once being so high up that nobody could hear him. * [[spoiler:IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight]]: [[spoiler:Against the {{Face Heel Turn}}ed Kid. Doesn't mean he'll stop trying to both talk ''and'' beat sense into him, though.]] ** [[spoiler:It ultimately worked, and Kid's more or less back]]. * InnocentCohabitation: According to Black☆Star in Chapter 75, Tsubaki and he sleep in the same room because they aren't enough rooms in the house. Kilik is jealous because, hey, it's ''[[TallDarkAndBishoujo Tsubaki]]'' we're talking about here. * JapanesePronouns: Refers himself as Ore-Sama most of the time. * {{Jerkass}} ** JerkWithAHeartOfJerk : Honestly, a girl as sweet and good-natured as Tsubaki-chan is more than he frankly deserves. ** {{Lampshaded}} By Maka. ** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Though he is willing to get beat over the head for almost an hour by three people to keep her safe, and genuinely cares about her well being. ** In the manga he's defintitely is the JerkWithAHeartOfGold. * KiAttacks * [[spoiler:KirkSummation]]: [[spoiler:Gives one to Kid and, by extension, [[FanNickname The Black Mass]] in 78]]. * LargeHam: 90% of Ham in the manga you can attribute directly to Black Star. In the anime... [[WorldOfHam not so much]]. * LastOfHisKind: [[spoiler:Averted with the introduction of Akane]]. * LightningBruiser * LuckyCharmsTitle * MadeOfIron: Just look at what Kid had to do to him just to make him ''stay down''. Oh, and he's up and running again in a few hours. * MonochromaticEyes * TheNapoleon * {{Ninja}} * NoIndoorVoice * {{Nosebleed}}: Whenever he's spying on Tsubaki in the bath. [[spoiler:This becomes a ReverseFunnyAneurysm moment when the Lust chapter reveals that ''[[YamatoNadeshiko Tsubaki]]'' is much more perverted than he is]]. * OnlyOneName * OpenTheIris: Averted, similair to Maka, his normally invisible pupils becoming visible when emotionally shocked or angered. * ScarfOfAsskicking: His [[spoiler: Shadow☆Star Zero Kata Masamune]] and later after he joins Spartoi he gets one. * [[spoiler:ScarsAreForever]]: [[spoiler:His star tattoo is bisected by a scar after his final battle with Mifune in the manga, indicative of his character development. And from that same fight he got scars down his arms and one on his face.]] * ScreamingWarrior: [[spoiler:He uses loud voice to disrupt Crona's Screech resonance.]] * SleevesAreForWimps * SuperSenses * TedBaxter: Only applies for the anime, later in the manga his strength starts to match his massive ego. * TheOtherDarrin: Averted unlike the others [[YumikoKobayashi his seiyuu]] voiced him in both the Drama CD and the Anime. * TinyGuyHugeGirl: To Tsubaki. * TooDumbToFool: He proudly proclaims that his sixth sense is so bad that he's unaffected by Asura's hallucinations. [[spoiler:He was wrong]]. * TookALevelInBadass: In the manga. [[spoiler:When Shibusen tracks down Crona, he encounters him/her and whups his/her ass so hard that even [[SmugSnake Medusa]] starts getting a little disconcerted at how the fight's going. Then she sent Eruka and Mizune sisters as backup, they don't help much.]] ** Well, there's that and the fight which first demonstrates that improvement; [[spoiler:after how badly he'd been getting beaten before leaving for Japan the ''proper'' dark demon blade mode, when Black☆Star and Tsubaki fight Mifune, comes out of nowhere]]. ** [[spoiler:The fact that he doesn't give into the "Madness of Power" in chapter 78 bears mentioning. Thirty chapters ago, [[HeroicBSOD he would have]]. CharacterDevelopment is a marvelous thing]]. * TranquilFury: He's most dangerous when he's not talking. * [[spoiler:WarriorTherapist]]: [[spoiler:Succeeds in talking Kid back to sanity.]] * [[spoiler:WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity]]: [[spoiler: Literally and without him losing his mind.]] * TheWorfEffect: Black☆Star suffers from this [[spoiler:(he beats Mifune in his first appearance and takes down Sid, but is [[CurbStompBattle utterly overpowered by Stein]], bested by Death the Kid, needs help to take down Free, fails to stop Medusa, [[SingleStrokeBattle is one-shotted by Asura during his awakening]], [[CurbStompBattle utterly humiliated by Mifune during their rematch]], and failed to complete his objective during the battle with Mosquito)]] and indeed suffers a minor HeroicBSOD from it. Later in the anime after recovering from his HeroicBSOD, he fights [[spoiler:Asura]] and the Worf Effect started when [[spoiler:Asura recovered from Death the Kid's Death Cannon with all three Sanzu Lines]]. * WouldHitAGirl: [[HitMeDammit Maka asks him to hit her]]. He does. ''In the face.'' * YouGottaHaveBlueHair * YourOtherLeft: Has this problem in the anime. !!Tsubaki Nakatsukasa http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/37500.jpg -->Voiced by: KaoriNazuka (JP), MamikoNoto (JP - CD dramas), MonicaRial (EN) Black☆Star's agreeable and level-headed Dark Demon Blade partner. She can change into multiple ninja weapons (shuriken, smoke bomb, a katana, etc). ----- * AnimeAnatomy * BadassAdorable * BerserkButton / BewareTheNiceOnes: the only time she actually snaps at Black☆Star is if he sees her bathing. ** ''For failing to even try being sneaky!'' She acts indifferent to the idea of him peeping if he would bother to at least seriously practice being stealthy. * {{BFS}} * BlueEyes * TheChick: Along with Liz and Patti. * [[spoiler:CovertPervert]]: [[spoiler:For someone who scolds Black☆Star for peeking at her in the bath, it turns out she's NotSoAboveItAll.]] ** [[spoiler:Not so much, she basically implied that Black☆Star can peep...as long as he doesn't get caught.]] * DarkIsNotEvil: After defeating her brother. ** CastingAShadow * DetachedSleeves * {{Expy}}: Other than the personality she bears a close resemblance to [[StreetFighter Ibuki]]. * FanService: Probably the sexiest naked back in an opening, ever. * FashionableAsymmetry * FourTemperamentEnsemble: Supine. * FuroScene: Time delay before her first bath? One episode. * {{Gainaxing}} * [[spoiler:GenderBender]]: [[spoiler:Along with the rest of the Spartoi.]] * HeyItsThatVoice: Tsubaki is [[CodeGeass Nunnally]]! ** Explains the ImTakingHerHomeWithMe feelings parts of her fandom get. * InnocentCohabitation: According to Black☆Star in Chapter 75, Tsubaki and he sleep in the same room because they aren't enough rooms in the house. Kilik is jealous because, hey, it's ''[[TallDarkAndBishoujo Tsubaki]]'' we're talking about here. * MorphWeapon: Can turn into StockNinjaWeaponry, including a FuumaShuriken, a [[SmokeOut smoke bomb]] and [[KatanasAreJustBetter a katana.]] * MsFanservice * NiceGirl * {{Ninja}} * PurpleEyes * ScarfOfAsskicking: [[spoiler: Gets one after joining Spartoi.]] * SexyBack * ShrinkingViolet * SlipknotPonytail * TallDarkAndBishoujo ** [[spoiler:TallDarkAndHandsome]]: [[spoiler:When {{gender flip}}ped.]] * TalkingWeapon * TeamMom: The most level-headed and emotionally mature of the children. * TinyGuyHugeGirl -> OneHeadTaller: To Black Star. * YamatoNadeshiko: You'd have to be, to deal with Black☆Star on a daily basis. * ZettaiRyouiki !!Death the Kid http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/73929.jpg -->Voiced by: MamoruMiyano (JP), TakakoHonda (JP - CD dramas), ToddHaberkorn (EN) Son of the Grim Reaper and meister to Liz and Patti. He is a very gifted meister whose only flaw is his crippling OCD, which manifests as an obsessive need to have everything be symmetrical. Hence, his naturally asymmetrical hairstyle is a source of great angst for him. In the recent story arc, [[spoiler:Kid has been kidnapped by Noah and is trapped in the Book of Eibon. His mental state has seemed to take a turn for the worse... so much that he either went crazy, was BrainWashed, or just plainly had a FaceHeelTurn]]. [[spoiler: And now he's going to kill the Kishin in his father's place. ON THE MOON.]] ----- * AlmightyJanitor: Perhaps the only one of the three main teams to still count as this. [[spoiler:Black☆Star and Maka are promoted to two-star students whereas Kid, thanks to having been kidnapped by a magician, is still where he started. Though for him it always was more of a technicality]]. * AntiHero * BackToBackBadasses: In the anime with Black☆Star. * BadassAngster * BadassBaritone * BadassInANiceSuit * BeatItByCompulsion: The easiest way to take him down. * BerserkButton: If Kid cannot fix something asymmetrical, he will blow it up. Also, insulting his father is a bad move. * {{BFG}}: Death Cannon. * {{Bishonen}} * BlackCloak: Wears one along with a skull mask on certain missions, making him look just like [[{{Shinigami}} his]] [[TheGrimReaper father]] from certain angles. * [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy]] * CatchPhrase: "Kichiri Kachiri", which could be translated as "Precise and Perfect". ** In the english dub, it's 'Absolutely Perfect'. * CoolBoard * [[spoiler:DarkIsNotEvil]]: [[spoiler:His insanity powerup.]] * DefenseMechanismSuperpower: The Sanzu Lines function as this when Mosquito tries to kill Kid, although they can also be activated at will. * EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette - When he gets serious, he looks downright creepy. * EyesOfGold * FashionableAsymmetry: Mostly subverted, but played straight with his hair (much to his chagrin). * FatalFlaw: His obsession with symmetry keeps him from winning fights he would otherwise have no problem with. * FlashStep * FourTemperamentEnsemble: Melancholic. * GangstaStyle: Kid takes this BeyondTheImpossible by [[ImprobableUseOfAWeapon gripping his guns ''upside-down'' ]] * GenderBender: Common in the fandom.

In the recent story arc, [[spoiler:Patti has switched to being Liz's meister in the wake of Kid's disappearance]]. ----- * ActionGirl * [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny Attention Deficit... Ooh Shiny!]] * AxCrazy: There's been several hints that she can be one vicious girl underneath the goofy personality.

His soul wavelength is so large that it covers all of Shibusen. Spirit Albarn is Shinigami-sama's current partner, much to the latter's constant annoyance. ----- * {{A Form You Are Comfortable With}}: He didn't make too many changes, but yes, originally a lot meaner looking. Then he decided to raise a school; and that involved human children. So he came up with a goofy face and persona so that DEATH would not be scary. * AnthropomorphicPersonification: Shini = death, Gami = god. ** That's a name he uses, but it's really not clear whether he's ''actually'' the embodiment of death, though the way souls reflect a person's nature suggests this could be the case. *** [[spoiler:An massive, inky ''thing' sealed within the Book of Eibon has called him a fellow "[[EldritchAbomination Great Old One]]", the "Madness of Law".

However his playful side is genuine. * DontFearTheReaper: [[JustifiedTrope Done deliberately]] so he could start a school without children being afraid of him. * EccentricMentor * [[spoiler:EldritchAbomination]]: [[spoiler:A fairly benevolent one but still.]] * GrimReaper * LetsGetDangerous: When Asura is released, his dopey round eyes turn triangular and angry, and his comedic karate chop creates shockwaves and leaves a crater upon impact. * ObfuscatingStupidity - Depending on how far his current persona is a pretence. [[BecomingTheMask He might really have 'gotten used' to it.]] * OddFriendship - Him and Spirit. Teasing, arguments, impatience, odd moments of concern for one another.

Yes, please. * HospitalHottie: She's the school nurse and [[BeautifulAllAlong she's actually quite pretty]] underneath the bandages. * InnocentFanserviceGirl: If you don't count the bandages, the only clothes she wears most of the time are a pair of fatigues. * [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Mummy Ninja]] * {{Ninja}} * {{Sarashi}} * SpellMyNameWithAnS: Nygus or Naigus? ** A certain sub rendered it as "Kniges", somewhat fitting given her weapon form. * TheStoic ** {{Kuudere}} * TalkingWeapon !!Dr. Franken Stein http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/37595.jpg ->Voiced by: YuyaUchida (JP), MitsuruMiyamoto (JP - CD dramas), ChuckHuber (EN) Dr. Franken Stein is a teacher at Shibusen and the most powerful meister to ever graduate from the school. Memorable for being a textbook MadScientist, albeit a heroic one. He was Spirit Albarn's first meister, until Spirit was driven off by Stein's obsession with dissecting anything and everything, including Spirit himself. ----- * AFatherToHisMen: Beneath his dissection-obsessed MadScientist exterior, he's a good man whose students love him. * AwesomeByAnalysis * AxCrazy: Noted in chapter 93 when Spirit compares him to the Kishin. * {{Badass}} ** BadassBookworm ** BadassLabcoat * BarehandedBladeBlock * [[spoiler:ClearMyName]]: [[spoiler:Is accused of murdering Joe Buttataki and ends up disappearing for awhile as result.]] * CombatMedic * TheCorruptible: In the anime, especially. The closest to insanity of all in Shibusen, and the bad guys notice. * CreepyGood: To put this into perspective, he routinely 'experiments on people' and told his partner he switched two of his toes when he was sleeping. He didn't; he was just screwing with him, but the fact that everyone found this a believable thing for him to have done really says it all. * CreepyMonotone: In the English dub. It's subtle, but it's there. * DeadlyDoctor * {{Expy}}: Bears a strong resemblance to [[ShamanKing Faust VIII]], at least personality-wise. ** He's a(n arguably) crazier, less visibly modified [[Film/HellBoy Karl Kroenen]] who's on the side of good... for now. * FreudianExcuse: He claims he doesn't have one. He tells Medusa of the doctors who wanted to find out what traumatic event could have caused him to act so violently towards others ( with a flashback to a young Stein beating up someone random for no clear reason), and Franken just wanted to cut ''them'' up. * GeniusBruiser * GoodOldFisticuffs: He doesn't need a weapon to kick ass. * HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: He first appears as a StealthMentor, reveals he's really a teacher then [[spoiler:later goes completly nuts and defects to Medusa's side. He gets better]]. ** Only the first two apply in the manga. * HeroicSociopath * HiddenDepths: Obviously an unrepentent MadScientist, but clearly one of the most complex characters in the show. * HotScientist: It's not on purpose. Not that it really matters. ** YourMileageMayVary on this - a recent chapter outright states that Kim and somewhat implies that Maka both have a PrecociousCrush on him. * KiAttacks: The fact that [[SuperpowerLottery he can do this without a weapon]] is one the things that makes him so dangerous, * LackOfEmpathy: He's certainly not dead inside but it's pointed out that [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove he's not quite capable of love]]. ** The latter is Nygus' opinion, and valid given his history, but worth noting Stein's reaction to Marie which immediately follows this claim. * LightningBruiser * MadDoctor * MadScientist * MadnessMontage * MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate * OralFixationFixation: His signature imported cigarettes... * ObfuscatingStupidity * ProfessorGuineaPig * PunnyName: Obviously a ShoutOut to {{Frankenstein}}. * SadistTeacher * SanitySlippage: Exactly how tight '''can''' he wind that screw in his head? * ScaryShinyGlasses * ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder * ShipTease: Gets quite a bit with Marie. ** Medusa as well, but that's mostly in the anime. * SmokingIsCool * SpecsOfAwesome * StealthMentor * StealthPun: He's got a [[MadScientist screw loose]]. ** Also, he's [[CoveredWithScars loose at the seams]]. * SwivelChairAntics: initially on a swivel chair performing things for RuleOfFunny. * TeamDad: Weirdly enough. ** Accepted as such by ''Maka'' who frequently goes to him for advice and is very happy to see him when he returns in the manga. * [[TokenEvilTeammate Token Chaotic Teammate]]: He's crazier than the rest of the DWMA combined, [[spoiler: and by far the most susceptible to Asura's madness]]. * VisualPun: He's constantly tightening the screw in his head. Meaning he's got a screw loose. * WhiteHairedPrettyBoy [[/folder]] [[folder:Death Scythes]] !!Spirit Albarn http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/62588.jpg -->Voiced by: TohruOokawa (JP), HiroakiHirata (JP - CD dramas), VicMignogna (EN) He is the Shinigami's current weapon and Maka's estranged but affectionate father. Maka's mother was his former meister, but she divorced him due to his constant flirting with other women. ----- * AdultChild * [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents Amazingly Embarrassing Dad]] * BerserkButton: If there's something he hates, it's child abuse: for all of his faults as a husband, he truly wants to be a good dad. When Medusa gloats about her horrible treatment of Crona, Spirit is angry. VERY ANGRY. * BunnyEarsLawyer: Is daft and flirtatious, but is also the Shinigami's Weapon and his ability is demonstrated, if only on a couple of occasions. Marie mentions his expertise in soul wavelength control in the same sentence she points out his womanising. * CreepyCoolCrosses: Wears a tie the shape of a cross, had a similar design on his clothing as a child, which match his black, occasionally cross-shaped Weapon form. * CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass * DotingParent: He is a doting father who really tries his very best for Maka. Unfortunately, while a doting father, he is a ''[[HandsomeLech terrible]]'' [[HandsomeLech husband]]. * EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: He is sometimes called by just his title, Death Scythe - which may or may not seem more meaningful when you consider that he's the only real scythe in weapon form. ** [[spoiler: Not anymore.]] * HandsomeLech * HotShoujoDad * LovableSexManiac: Though not quite lovable enough to stop his wife from divorcing him. * MoralityChain: To Stein, especially when they were students. * OddFriendship: He and Shinigami annoy one another quite frequently, but he ''does'' seem to care about his meister (e.g the Sanzu Lines business) and his role as Death Scythe. His friendship with Stein is also odd, but for other less-pleasant reasons. * OverEnthusiasticParents * OverProtectiveDad * RedHeadedHero * SinisterScythe * TalkingWeapon * [[WellDoneSonGuy "Way Cool, Dad" Guy]]: Inverted. He constantly tries to be an admirable father-figure to Maka and seeks her approval, but she ain't buying it. !!Justin Law http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/43720.jpg -->Voiced by: YorinoshiFujita (JP), EricVale (EN) The Death Scythe in charge of Europe. His weapon form, the guillotine, fits his title of "executioner". He's usually seen wearing priestly garb and a pair of headphones that he keeps on at high volume. [[spoiler:In the manga he turns out to have been a spy for Eibon and the Kishin, much to the shock of his former colleagues.]] ----- * ArtShift: [[spoiler: Since his FaceHeelTurn, the panels depicting him have grown steadily more warped and twisted.]] * [[spoiler:AxCrazy]] * [[spoiler:BlondGuysAreEvil]]: [[spoiler:And so is Justin.]] * BlueEyes * ChildProdigy: Attained Death Scythe status as a thirteen year old, ''without'' the help of a meister to boot. * ChurchMilitant * [[spoiler:TheDragon: Has effectively become one for Kishin Asura]]. * [[spoiler:EvilFeelsGood]]: [[spoiler:He consider being Asura's [[TheDragon Dragon]] is a pleasant life.]] * [[spoiler:EvilMakesYouUgly]] * HeadphonesEqualIsolation * [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn]] * ImprobableAge[=/=]TeenGenius: He became a Death Scythe at age 13, the youngest in Shibusen's history. * [[ImprobableWeaponUser Improbable Weapon]]: Why is he the only Death Scythe who graduated without a partner? Probably because no one figured out how they were supposed to wield a ''guillotine''. * [[spoiler:KnightTemplar]] * LonersAreFreaks: He constantly isolated himself even as a child, and uses his headphones, speakers, and other noise to cut himself off from the world. * [[spoiler:LovesTheSoundOfScreaming]]: [[spoiler:He only willingly takes off his earphones because of this.]] * [[spoiler:MadnessMakeover]]: [[spoiler:Especially when he fuses with the Clown.]] * [[spoiler:TheMole]]: [[spoiler:Manga only.]] * [[spoiler:PsychoSupporter]]: [[spoiler:He is fanatically devoted to Asura, who he worship ''because'' he is the God of Fear and Madness.]] * ReadingLips: Which is good, considering his headphones. * [[spoiler:ScarsAreForever]]: [[spoiler:The scar he got when Tezca Tlipoca burned off half his face has stayed the same since it happened. Not particularly notable since that sounds reasonable, except for the fact that his ''eye has apparently been on fire since it happened.'']] * [[spoiler:SlasherSmile]]: [[spoiler:He's relatively low-key until Chapter 69, when he starts busting out grins that threaten to split his head in half.]] * StayInTheKitchen: He shows a bit of a misogynist streak in one of his later appearances, though Marie quickly reminds him [[LightningBruiser who he's dealing with]]. * TalkingWeapon * [[spoiler:ThisIsYourBrainOnEvil: The longer he stays on Asura side, the crazier he goes. By the time of his fight with Tezca Tlipoca, he's starts slipping into complete, incoherent raving madness. Then again, working for the embodiment of insanity can't be mentally healthy.]] !!Marie Mjolnir http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/32632.jpg -->Voiced by: ChiekoHonda (JP), ColleenClinkenbeard (US) The Death Scythe in charge of Oceania. Her weapon form is that of a large hammer, and her last name is derived from the legendary hammer of Thor, Mjolnir. She wears an eyepatch with a thunderbolt insignia. ------ * AdultChild * ChristmasCake: She's so desperate for commitment that at one point she tried to marry a toilet. * CloudCuckooLander: Again, ''tried to marry a toilet''. * CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass * CurbStompBattle: With Stein, against [[spoiler:Justin Law]]. * CurtainsMatchTheWindow * DropTheHammer: In the anime, Marie attacks as a hammer. But wielded by Stein, her weapon form becomes a tonfa. * {{Expy}}: She bears a close resemblance in physical appearance to Nice Holystone from Baccano!, as far as having the same hair and eye color and sporting an eye patch. They even share the same voice actress, coincidentally. * EyesOfGold * EyePatchOfPower * {{Gainaxing}} * LightningBruiser: In the manga she's this on her own. With her help, a compatible Meister can beat on someone so fast the victim doesn't even know what's happening to them. * MeaningfulName: Even more so in the anime, where her form ''actually is'' a hammer. ** The manga instead emphasises the 'lightning' connection with her ability to allow her meister to move at extremely high speeds, and the 'internal generation' she uses to burn Medusa's snake. Her nickname, "the Crusher," also recalls the mythological hammer. * MoralityChain: Chosen specifically to be Stein's weapon when fighting the Kishin for her healing wavelength. * NoSenseOfDirection: She's a Shibusen alumnus and it takes hours of trial and error for her to get anywhere. * SenseiChan * ShipTease: With Stein. * SilkHidingSteel: An extremely goofy version, but an example nonetheless. Follows Shinigami's orders to a T (indeed one of the few that showed up when he called after Ashura got out) and is put in charge of quietly reigning in Stein's madness. As for the steel, well, her nickname ''is'' "Crushing Weapon." * TalkingWeapon * TeamMom !!Yumi Azusa http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/32634.jpg -->Voiced by: {{Yukana}} (JP), BrinaPalencia (EN) The Death Scythe in charge of East Asia. She is bookish and analytical and is close friends with Marie. In weapon form she takes the form of a crossbow, able to fire high pressure spirit shots up to 10 km accurately. She is also an extremely competent information gatherer and tactician, easily finding one of Arachnophobia's labs. ------ * ColdSniper * HotLibrarian * MeaningfulName: It's supposed to be a pun on the azusayumi, a type of Japanese bow (as in bow and arrow). * {{Meganekko}} * NerdsAreSexy * PerpetualFrowner * PsychicPowers * ScaryShinyGlasses * SpecsOfAwesome * TheStoic * TalkingWeapon !!Tezca Tlipoca The Death Scythe in charge of South America, Tezca appears to be a man wearing a large grinning bear mask that completely covers his head. His Weapon form is a mirror, worn on the ankle of his Meister, Enrique. ----- * AlliterativeName * BadassCreed: "Life and death are bestowed equally on all people. I'm a mirror in which a person is reflected. So, how you die is up to you..." * ChekhovsGunman * {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Snaps between this and his competent {{Badass}} persona in the blink of an eye. For example, [[spoiler: after faking his death, he disguises himself by putting on a giant ''gopher'' head]]. * CoolMask: That is one freaky bear head. * CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass * [[spoiler: FakingTheDead]]: [[spoiler: Thought to have been unceremoniously bitten in half, but turns out he used a dummy to fake his death and track Justin Law. Justin Law later decapitated him and checked the body to make sure - the body was real, but Tezca's soul survived..]] * TheFightingNarcissist: One of his stated motivations is to create a perfect copy of himself because he thinks he's very good-looking under the mask, but can't reflect himself. * [[spoiler: ImplacableMan: First he's seemingly killed by Noah, then he really dies fighting Justin, and now he's appearing in mirrors as some kind of twisted ghost thing. His dialog during this last time seems to imply that he could just come back to life if he found a new body, and may have done so before.]] * [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Averted twice, though his physical body has been destroyed.]] * MagicMirror: He can [[MirrorMatch taking on another's appearance]], show his enemies how they're going to die, and [[spoiler: create numerous, independent copies of himself, which can rejoin their bodies in [[BodyHorror unsettling ways]] when "killed".]] * MaskOfPower: Subverted; not only does the mask not seem to serve any purpose, but it also makes it impossible for lip-reader Justin Law to understand him. Since they were apparently old friends, this means Justin hung around him for ''years'' [[CrowningMomentofFunny without catching a single word he said]]. * MeaningfulName: "Tezcatlipoca" is the name of an Aztec god associated with mirrors. It literally means "Smoking Mirror" and the way it's separated, gives him his first name as "Mirror" in nahuatl. * [[spoiler:NotQuiteDead: Justin destroyed his body, but not his soul.]] * ObfuscatingStupidity: He doesn't seem too quick on the uptake and constantly jokes around during combat, but gets serious in a big hurry. * PaperThinDisguise: The man who can make himself look like anybody, but wears a giant bear mask, disguises himself...[[spoiler: by replacing the bear mask with a giant gopher mask]]. * ScarilyCompetentTracker: This seems to be his area of expertise, as we've seen him acting as an independent tracker several times now. * ShapeshifterGuiltTrip: Possibly. [[spoiler:Justin and Medusa]] both see people they've wronged in the past while looking at him at least. * SympatheticMagic: After someone's soul is reflected in his mirror, he can track them wherever they go. [[spoiler: He can even reflect his ''own'' soul, allowing it to exist after his body is destroyed.]] * TalkingWeapon !![[spoiler:Soul Eater Evans]] The newest Death Scythe, sworn in a short time after [[spoiler:Justin]] went rogue. !!Tsar Pushka The Russian Death Scythe, also known as "Magic Bullet." Appears to be an EpicFlail type weapon. ----- * BadassMustache * CaptainEthnic * DemonSlaying: One of only 3 characters in the series to be confirmed with the anti-demon wavelength. As noted by Medusa, he's particularly effective at fighting Crona as a result... up to a point. * {{Gonk}} * MadeOfIron * MeaningfulName: "Pushka" means "cannon" in Russian. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsar_Cannon "Tsar pushka"]] is the largest bombard by caliber ever built. * MightyGlacier * TalkingWeapon * TheWorfEffect !!Ding Dinga The Deathscythe in charge of Africa. His weapon form is called "Rainbow Axe." * AnAxeToGrind * AttackReflector: His Rainbow Axe seems to function as this in a way. * DarkSkinnedBlonde * RainbowMotif * WalkingShirtlessScene !!Jingaran The Deathscythe in charge of West Asia. His weapon form is a lamp. * TheFaceless * GenieInABottle: Him performing Soul Resonance with his meister creates one. * HeartSymbol: The attack called [[http://www.mangareader.net/soul-eater/95/22 "The Lovers."]] Probably also an example of ThePowerOfLove. * NoShirtLongJacket * OurGeniesAreDifferent: His [[http://www.mangareader.net/soul-eater/92/20 Jinn form]]. [[/folder]] [[folder:Other Meisters]] !!Crona http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/37601.jpg -->Voiced by: MaayaSakamoto (JP), MaxeyWhitehead (EN) Crona is Ragnarok's meister of [[AmbiguousGender intentionally unclear gender]], and initially worked for Medusa. Zhe is unusual for a meister because zhe and hir weapon share the same body, which is a source of {{Squick}} for the heroes. ------ * AdaptationDyeJob: Hair was pink in the manga but purple in the anime (though there are a few manga illustrations where it's purple, it's usually pink). * AmbiguousGender ** This even plagued Funimation for the dub. Despite going with male pronouns for simplicity, some of the English actors and the dub director still refer to Crona as "him/her" (and [[AbusiveParents Medusa]], pretty much the only one who would actually know, [[GuineaPigFamily actually calls Crona "it"]]). * AntiVillain * AxCrazy - Seems to be this, as of recent manga chapters. Yeah... [[CooldownHug It's going to take a lot more than a hug to fix hir now]], Maka. * BodyHorror: Taken for granted, but doesn't become fully apparent until chapter 68, when we see that [[spoiler:between the corruption of Medusa, Ragnarok, and the Black Clown, hir soul has become twisted and deformed almost beyond recognition]]. ** [[spoiler:MultiArmedAndDangerous.]] * BloodyMurder: Crona can use all his/her blood as a weapon. Heck, hir blood ''is'' a weapon! * BlueEyes: In the anime. * BrownNote: Hir poetry is so depressing that it makes ANYONE, even the normally hyperactive Black Star, sulk in a corner wishing they were never born. * [[spoiler:[[CallingTheOldManOut Calling the Old Woman Out]]: After Medusa shows Crona affection for the first time in his/her life and even apologizes for her cruel treatment, Crona quite epically [[FreakOut freaks out]] and rants about how she made hir throw away everything, and how zhe too was "[[ParentalAbandonment thrown away]]," all the while stabbing her to a bloody pulp.]] * CatchPhrase: "I don't know how to deal with this..." and "My blood is black." ** [[spoiler:The former quickly turns into a MadnessMantra]]: --> [[spoiler:Kill you. Kill you. I don't know how to deal with you, so I'll kill you. Kill you. Kill you.]] * DarkAndTroubledPast * [[DarkMagicalGirl Dark Magical... Person]]: You know how Maka and Soul have a [[PlatonicLifePartners deep and affectionate relationship]] and defeat their enemies with [[ThePowerOfFriendship weaponized friendship]]? Crona's relationship with Ragnarok is about as far as one could go in the other direction. Hir relationship with Medusa makes a second contrast, with hir desperately seeking approval from hir Jerkass mother. Also Crona is Maka's rival and after her HeelFaceTurn becomes extremely attached to her. * GoingCommando: [[http://i1021.photobucket.com/albums/af332/tvtropes-pages/soul%20eater/1048318_e.jpg Yes, really]]. * GuineaPigFamily: Medusa's. * HartmanHips: Not helping the "what gender is Crona anyway" discussions at all. * [[spoiler:HeelFaceRevolvingDoor]]: [[spoiler:It's unknown which side Crona will end the manga on, but zhe finishes the anime as a Face after a full trip around the revolving door.]] * HimeCut: Sort of. ** Or it could be some sort of BobHaircut. It's hard to tell, really. The way it falls has this kinda "I cut my own hair" vibe to it that really, only adds to Crona's Woobiefication. * [[spoiler: HumanoidAbomination: Has been gradually edging closer to this as the Black Blood nears completion.]] * MyMasterRightOrWrong - Zhe seems to have this relationship with Medusa. * NervousWreck: Thanks to being raised to become a new Kisin by Medusa. Zhe's even quite jittery when zhe's AxeCrazy. * ParentalAbandonment: Why any ''SoulEater'' fan who looks beyond Medusa's MagnificentBastard status wants to strangle her for being a [[CompleteMonster grievously bad mother]]. * [[Film/MenInBlack Person In]] [[WomanInBlack Black]]: Crona's default outfit. ** [[WomanInWhite Person]] [[ManInWhite In White]]: At the party thrown for hir. * {{Pettanko}}: [[AmbiguousGender Maybe?]] * [[RoseHairedGirl Rose Haired Person]]: Averted in the beginning, but played straight later on. * SanitySlippage: Medusa's gamut of experiments on Crona is solely intended to induce this on hir. [[spoiler:[[GoneHorriblyRight It worked]].]] * [[spoiler:SelfMadeOrphan: And Medusa gives every indication that ''this is what she wanted''.]] * ShrinkingViolet: Kind of a gloomy/creepy version, but still fits. * [[spoiler:SixthRanger]]: [[spoiler:When zhe's a Face.]] * TalkativeLoon: Normally very quiet, but turns into one of these when under Medusa's influence. --> "Oh, okay! You're saying I can kill the girl? I didn't ''realize'' that...maybe I can play with her hair first, just for a little while. Hey, everyone! These doors open inward! ''THEY ONLY OPEN ONE WAY!''" * {{Tareme Eyes}} * [[WellDoneSonGuy "Well Done, Child" Person]]: This, plus fear, binds Crona to Medusa.

Due to the anime's GeckoEnding that split off after his introductory chapter, Joe plays a different role in it. In the anime, Joe was one of Shibusen's most talented scientists and engineers, and Shinigami pulls him back to Death City to help work on a black ops project involving [[MacGuffin BREW]]. With the exception of his irrational love of coffee, little else of the character's background was kept from the manga. ------ * DemonSlaying: The anti-demon wavelength. Makes him a perfect sensor as a result. * EyesAlwaysShut * MrFixit: In the anime. * MustHaveCaffeine: The first instance of this sets up a piece of hilarious Japanese wordplay. * [[spoiler:SparedByTheAdaptation]] * UnfortunateNames: Seriously, Joe Butt!? ** Actually, it translates to [[AwesomeMcCoolName "Ass-kicking Joe" or "Joe Ass-kicker".]] !!Enrique Tezca Tlipoca's Meister. [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys He's a monkey]]. A monkey that wears clothes, sneakers, and a baseball cap. Mm-hmm. ------ * BoisterousBruiser: It's [[TheUnintelligible difficult to tell]], but Enrique is apparently quite the comedian, as his introduction had him delivering lengthy jokes (and sending Tezcatlipoca into hysterics) ''while Medusa was attacking him''. He's also not above having a laugh at his Weapon's expense. At the same time, he's a Death Scythe meister, and will presumably [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking end you]]. * EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Self-explanatory. * ImprobableWeaponUser: Fights wearing Tezcatlipoca, the Demon Mirror, on his ankle. * TheUnintelligible: He's incapable of saying anything but variations of "Gau," which is partly why he didn't show up at the initial Death Scythe convention. ** Although strangely, Tezca has no problems understanding him. !!Fyodor Tsar Pushka's Meister. ------ * DanceBattler: Specifically, [[ThatRussianSquatDance cossack dancing.]] * ExtremityExtremist * FragileSpeedster * ImprobableWeaponUser: Pushka himself appears to be a giant iron ball on a stick; Fyodor fights by attaching the stick to one leg and launching the ball with the other. * ShoutOut: His name's probably a callback to Dostoyevsky's. * TheWorfEffect !!Heming One of Ahab's annual meisters, and a hunter of madness-inducing [[GiantFlyer sky whales]]. ------ * TheHunter * MeaningfulName: His name comes from American author Ernest Hemingway, who was also a hunter. * StudentAndMasterTeam: With Ahab. * YoungGun: Who rides a literal "Old Gun." !!Old Lady [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin An old lady]] who works as a receptionist at Shibusen and distribute mission requests. ---- * AnimalMotifs: Calls herself a "Gorilla." * BareFistedMonk * BigDamnHeroes: For Kid while on the moon, complete with DynamicEntry. * BoisterousBruiser * ChekhovsGunman: The first time we see her is when she gives Kilik and Ox their mission with the giant. * CoolOldLady * [[spoiler:DroppedABridgeOnHer: Sliced apart and then her soul is absorbed while on the moon.

Despite being so dangerous and powerful, his personality is quite silly. He can also be serious and cunning when needed, but he usually isn't since he can't die. ----- * AnIcePerson: Free uses Ice based magic, but his personality is a little off from the usual. * BigBadassWolf: The whole werewolf deal you know and can be pretty darn badass when he wants to be. * CatchPhrase: He's got at least two: the chant "Wolf, wolves, wolf, wolves," and the more informal [[GratuitousEnglish "GODDAMNSHIIIIT!"]] * CloudCuckooLander: Free originally let himself be imprisoned because he wanted to try to dig his way out of a prison with a spoon, like in the movies... Unfortunately, all the meals were served with chopsticks. * EvilEye. * FantasticRacism: Apparently, Shibusen has mercilessly hunted down werewolves in the past. He's not happy about this. * {{Hologram}}: One of his powers. * {{Immortality}}: Free regenerates from all and any damage and doesn't age. * MagicMisfire: Happened two times during his first fight after 200 years, the second time resulting in him becoming a [[HumanPopsicle Wolfman Popsicle]] * MeaningfulName: Names himself Free after beeing freed by Medusa. * NoNameGiven: Free is known only by his nicknames. So far he has been called (Man of the) Demon Eye, Free & (The Legendary) Werewolf. * NoSenseOfDirection: In the Baba Yaga arc of the manga. He was supposed to destroy tower 1 and he went toward tower 2 instead. In the end he ended up at tower 8. Besides towers 2 and 8 were opposite to each other. He had been in Baba Yaga's Castle for a pretty long time by then... I mean that's just messed up. * NotSoGreatEscape: When Eruka got him out of jail and he was still restrained. He talked pretty darn loud. The guards found out and surrounded them. He then kills them all in about thirty seconds. * OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Voluntary shapeshifting, full control of his mental faculties, just as strong in human form as in wolf form (but no tail or claws/bite) and apparently immortal by nature before he stole Mabaa's eye. * TunnelKing: Free wanted to escape prison using this method but they only gave him chopsticks. * VoluntaryShapeshifting: Free has stated that his werewolf form is his true form. * UnskilledButStrong: After years of imprisonment, let's just say that Free has gotten a little bit... rusty... with his magic skills. At one time, he even manages to encase himself in a block of ice! However, when he does get it right, he's a major threat, not to mention the fact that he can afford to be unskilled due to the fact that he is ''immortal.'' !!Ragnarok http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/24946.jpg -->Voiced by: KeijiHimeno (JP), SonnyStrait (EN) Ragnarok is Crona's Demon Sword partner. He shares a body with his meister and loves to bully and torment him/her at every opportunity. ------ * AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: In the anime [[spoiler: when Crona jumps in front of Medusa's vector attack to save Maka, Ragnarok comes out of the resulting pool of blood yelling that they're both going to die and it's all Maka's fault, "but at least stupid Crona isn't alone in the end."]] * BodyHorror * BloodyMurder: He's Crona's LivingWeapon made out of black blood, after all. * BullyAndWimpPairing: Bully to Crona's wimp. * TheImp * {{Jerkass}}: Has been a pretty consistent one throughout all his different forms. * LivingWeapon: Not only is he able to turn into a sword, he really is ''Crona's blood''. * MakeMeWannaShout: Many of his attacks involve screaming. * PintSizedPowerhouse: He fares pretty well against Giriko and knocks over a golem while in SleepModeSize! Maka even wonders how she was able to defeat him. * SleepModeSize * TalkingWeapon: With giant, fleshy lips, no less. * TokenEvilTeammate: After Crona's HeelFaceTurn. * {{Vibroweapon}}: He vibrates by [[MakeMeWannaShout screaming]]. !!Excalibur http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/37588.jpg -->Voiced by: TakehitoKoyasu (JP), TroyBaker (EN) The legendary sword used by heroes and kings. In spite of his immense powers, Excalibur hardly ever has a meister because no one can put up with his unbearably grating, loudmouthed, egomaniac personality. He usually resides in a cave full of fairies, who also can't stand him. ----- * AbsurdlySharpBlade: [[BeyondTheImpossible Can cut through Dimensions.]] * [[AwesomeButImpractical Awesome But]] [[TheScrappy Intolerable]] * CanonImmigrant[=/=]AscendedMeme: The "Excalibur Song" was originally made for a filler episode in the anime. It eventually found its way into the manga, where Excalibur was able to torment even more people with it. * CaptainErsatz: Excalibur's character design is pretty much ripped right off from ''TheMoomins''. * CatchPhrase: "'''{{BAKA}}ME/[[YouFool FOOL!]]'''", and "My legend began in/dates back to the 12th century". * CloudCuckooLander ** TheCuckoolanderWasRight / DumbassHasAPoint: Towards to the end of the anime, he [[WisdomFromTheGutter gives out some info during the fight against Asura]] and [[spoiler:[[WhatTheHellHero calls Azusa on fighting Asura without a meister]]]]... in between being a CloudCuckoolander of the nth degree. * {{Earworm}}: [[GratuitousEnglish "Excalibur... Excalibur... From United King, I'm looking for him, I'm going to Californiaaa~"]] ** OverlyLongGag: "How long is this torture going to last?..." * [[spoiler:EldritchAbomination]]: [[spoiler:It's implied that he's a Great Old One and possibly the representation of the Madness of Rage. The cover spread of [[http://www.mangareader.net/soul-eater/77/2 chapter 77]] possibly shows him alongside Shinigami, Asura, Eibon and The Black Mass, all of whom are confirmed eldritch horrors (second from the left).]] * FearlessFool: More in the anime, where he's pretty much the only one that isn't afraid of Asura's power. ** Justified since he is that powerful. * HilarityEnsues: Whether you love Excalibur or hate him, words cannot describe how hilarious [[http://read.mangashare.com/Soul-Eater/chapter-074/page021.html this]] is, immediately followed by [[http://read.mangashare.com/Soul-Eater/chapter-074/page030.html this]]. And before you ask, that is Black Star. * HeyItsThatVoice: Excalibur is '''''[[{{Naruto}} Pain]]'''''?! ** [[DeadpanSnarker Yes]]. [[IncrediblyLamePun Yes it certainly is]]. ** The Japanese version, meanwhile, is... Well, ''[[ManOfAThousandVoices everybody]]''. * InfinityPlusOneSword: Is actually the most powerful weapon in existence... '''''if''''' you're willing to take his absurd crap. ** Some of the known abilities he grants his wielder are Heavenly Wings, light speed movement, and the ability to slash everything with ''[[StuffBlowingUp gigantic explosions of golden fire]]''. When Liz used him (briefly) in the Book of Eibon, he was able to cut a large hole '''through another dimension'''. * ItsAllAboutMe: Oh ''hell'' yes. * JerkAss: He's so friggin annoying it makes sense why the only people who can wield him can be called kings and heroes, King Arthur must've been a saint. ** I can almost see why the Lady of the Lake wanted to get rid of him. She may have recognized Arthur's leadership skills and his ability to withstand and work with any persona, no matter how extreme. Of course, I'm just guessing. ** According to the anime, he was a lot more coherent in King Arthur's day. And also had a cool beard. Apparently his sanity is directly proportional to his amount of facial hair. ** Note that in his first appearance, Excalibur was willing to cut his list of 1,000 requirements down to 800 in return for being wielded as a weapon by Kid or Star. Presumably, a sufficiently persuasive Meister could negotiate him down to something manageable. ** Also note, that in the Book of Eibon he was willing to lend his power to good guys with no requirements (in the Eibon Chapter Pride, they were too proud to accept his offer). It is not impossible that he merely put on a JerkAssFacade to scare off meisters who want to use him for petty reasons. *** Ironic that in the Chapter of Pride, '''HE''' was humble enough to offer his services. * LargeHam: Picking TakehitoKoyasu for his Japanese voice role and TroyBaker for his English couldn't possibly have been unintentional. And yes, they overact like hell and obviously had fun doing it. * PhraseCatcher: "SO ANNOYING!" * PublicDomainArtifact * RunningGag: The [[http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/227/1287208133569.png 'I-Have-Met-Excalibur' face]]. * SmugSmiler: Sort of. * TedBaxter: He's the most powerful weapon, true. But it is absolutely impossible for anything to be as great as he makes himself out to be. * TheScrappy: An in-universe example (and a BaseBreaker on the audience). He's so ungodly annoying that he causes the exact same pained facial expression in everyone who meets him. [[http://www.mangareader.net/soul-eater/74/25 This includes]] [[spoiler:the Book of Eibon's Table of Contents]], which ''[[BeyondTheImpossible doesn't have a face]].'' ** Another example is that Black☆Star's {{leitmotif}} involves a line specifically underlining that he can't stand Excalibur. This in [[ItsAllAboutMe Black☆Star]]'s {{leitmotif}}. The fact that he took time out of praising himself just to single out someone he doesn't like speaks volumes. * SecretTestOfCharacter: Almost every question that comes out of his mouth is a SecretTestOfCharacter...that only makes sense to him. * ShooOutTheClowns: Inverted. He comes back for the climax in the anime, despite everyone's (both villain and hero) best attempts at ignoring him. * TalkativeLoon * TalkingWeapon: And singing... and dancing... and ''never shutting up''... !!Giriko http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/33707.jpg -->Voiced by: NobutoshiCanna (JP), JMichaelTatum (EN) Giriko is a Demon Weapon and an ally to the witch Arachne. He lives for fighting and destruction, and takes the form of a chainsaw in weapon form. ----- * AxCrazy: Is he ever. * {{Badass}} * BloodKnight: [[spoiler: In fact he's BeyondTheImpossible with this, that he literally dies from his soul exploding because it couldn't contain 800 years of pent-up bloodlust anymore.]] * ChainsawGood: He ''is'' the chainsaw. * ClusterFBomb * CurtainsMatchTheWindow * EvilCounterpart: At first he appears to be this to [[TheRival Justin Law]] up until [[spoiler:Justin's FaceHeelTurn]]. An argument could also be made that he's the evil counterpart of either [[HandsomeLech Spirit]] or more recently [[ByronicHero Soul]]. ** Both Soul and Giriko have jagged teeth, AnimeHair, an insane amount of loyalty toward one person, and some form of attraction toward Maka. For Giriko, it manifests itself in extreme FoeYay and eventually [[spoiler: LesYay]]. For Soul, it comes in the form of [[VitriolicBestBuds a weird]] but ''extremely'' loyal friendship and various amounts of ShipTease. * [[spoiler:{{Gender Bender}}]]: [[spoiler:Since his latest kid was a girl he had no choice but to transport his mind into her, effectively changing genders.]] * FoeYay: Admits he has some for Maka. [[spoiler:Considering he was a girl by then, it also counts LesYay]]. Let the InterplayOfSexAndViolence begin! * TheHedonist: He drinks in every other chapter, he's lazy as sin, and he acts [[http://mangastream.com/read/soul_eater/76853218/9 touchy-feely with the teenage girl]] he's attempting to massacre. ** Whoa, he's like the EvilCounterpart of [[HandsomeLech Spirit]]. * {{Immortality}} ** [[spoiler:He may have been able to swap bodies and memories to remain alive, but [[KarmicDeath 800 years of pent-up bloodlust does NOT have its benefits to the soul]]]]. * ImmortalityImmorality: Implanting your memories into your artificially created children? A little bit creepy. * InterplayOfSexAndViolence: The [[IncrediblyLamePun longer]] his fight goes on with Maka, the more it descends into this. It gets to the point that you could replace "chainsaw" with "penis" and it would make just as much sense. * {{Jerkass}} * [[spoiler:KarmicDeath]]: [[spoiler:Giriko's sole desire in life, to unleash his bloodlust that was pent-up for 800 years, becomes his downfall when his soul is unable to withstand it any longer and EXPLODES.]] ** Horrifying enough, he [[FoeYay DOES]] entertain an interest in doing just that. [[spoiler:[[KarmicDeath Then, he dies.]]]] ** Just... just [[http://www.mangareader.net/157-54969-8/soul-eater/chapter-75.html see this]]. What he tells [[spoiler:Maka]] right after [[spoiler:pining her to the floor by her wrists]] REALLY doesn't help his case. * MyMasterRightOrWrong: Towards Arachne. * NotSoDifferent: A [[{{Badass}} Deathscythe-level]] bladed weapon who's [[UndyingLoyalty almost suicidally devoted]] to [[ActionGirl a woman much more powerful/skilled/smarter]] than he is, with [[SlasherSmile jagged teeth]]... Wait, are we talking about [[ChainsawGood Giriko]] and [[HotWitch Arachne]], or [[SinisterScythe Soul]] and [[CuteBruiser Maka]]? * PsychoForHire * [[spoiler:RoaringRampageOfRevenge]]: [[spoiler:Towards Maka and Soul for Arachne's death]]. * RollerbladeGood: Can use the chainsaws on his feet to work like this. * [[spoiler:SelfDisposingVillain]]: [[spoiler:See Karmic Death]] * SlasherSmile * {{Steampunk}}: Arguably a motif. * ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: Is quite fond of this trope. * UndyingLoyalty: For Arachne. * UnknownRival: To Justin, [[spoiler:before joining him]]. * UnstoppableRage: In the "Salvage" arc, his anger and energy was so tremendous that it made him practically untouchable; the air around him was a whirling death trap of chainsaw blades, while the "noise" from his soul made Soul's piano worthless. * VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:Hasn't taken the death of Arachne very well at all.]] * {{Yandere}}: For Arachne. ** [[spoiler:After her death, Giriko proceeded to try to rape Maka and then attempted to kill both her and Soul, ranting about how they had to die because of what they had done to her.]] !!Masamune http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/38743.jpg -->Voiced by: HiroshiTsuchida (JP), KyleHebert (EN) A demon blade called the Uncanny Sword and Tsubaki's estranged older brother, resenting her for being a more gifted weapon than he. ------ * AloofBigBrother * {{Badass}} * EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette * EvilWeapon - One possible state of the demon blade form; possessing people, acts of violence, and soul-destroying all present while Masamune had that particular Weapon form. * EmoTeen: Has the appearence of one at the very least. * KatanasAreJustBetter * [[LonersAreFreaks Loners are Evil]] - Probably ''not'' a coincidence that Masamune went mad while alone and misunderstood, whilst Tsubaki's partnership with a meister (first from the family to join Shibusen) has allowed her to [[spoiler:unlock the 'true' form of the demon blade]]. * PeoplePuppets * UncannyFamilyResemblance: He's a male version of Tsubaki, to put it bluntly. * TheUnfavorite * YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: He seems rather fond of talking like this. !!Mosquito http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/38749.jpg -->Voiced by: TakashiInagaki (JP), MarkStoddard (EN) Mosquito is Arachne's butler. His appearance is a short old man with a large pointy nose which is used to suck the blood out of a victim. ------ * BadassGrandpa: Until he pulls off the BishounenLine. * {{Battle Butler}}: For Arachne. * BishounenLine: Aparently, Mosquito was very popular with the ladies 600 years ago. ** Considering he kind of looks like a bishounen Dracula, [[VampiresAreSexGods that's probably true]]. * TheDragon * ShoutOut: His "Police Stinger" is reference to both the band "The Band" and its lead singer, Sting. !!Kishin Asura http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ashurakishin_1_9012.jpg -->Voiced by: ToshioFurukawa (JP), ChrisPatton (EN) The strongest and most dangerous antagonist in ''SoulEater'', and the first demon god. He was supposedly once human, a meister and Death's apprentice who ate his own weapon partner after going insane with fear. Before the start of the series, he was defeated by Shinigami-sama and [[SealedEvilInACan imprisoned]]. However he is eventually released and begins to spread "madness" throughout the world. ----- * APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil * BigBad: In the anime version at least, still open for debate in the manga though. ** BiggerBad: Bigger than Arachne, potentially bigger than Medusa. * {{Bishounen}}: He can be quite pretty when not making {{Nightmare Face}}s. * DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Attacking the bystanders in the Death Room to force Shinigami to [[TakingTheBullet take the 'bullet']] [[TearJerker himself]]. Also, interrupting Kid's longer-than-usual transformation sequence by skewering him. ** Also when he realizes he's [[spoiler:[[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove started to feel something for Arachne]], he kills her to keep anyone from using her against him]]. * DirtyCoward: Shinigami describes him as this. * DissonantSerenity: Especially in the anime, he can be disturbingly calm at times. He doesn't even bat an eyelid at Shinigami's threats to skin him alive ''again''. * EldritchAbomination: [[spoiler:It's been stated in the manga that he is a "Great Old One", along with the other Eight Warlords, he himself implied to be the "AnthropomorphicPersonification of the Madness of Terror."]] ** HumanoidAbomination * [[spoiler:EvilCannotComprehendGood]]: [[spoiler:Asura is defeated in the anime because he cannot comprehend the concept of courage.]] * EvilEye * EyesDoNotBelongThere: Not on your hands, your forehead, and ''especially'' not ''[[BeyondTheImpossible inside]]'' your normal eyes! * FateWorseThanDeath: Having your skin ripped off and turned into a bag with which to seal your soul for all eternity. No wonder he's even crazier when he comes out. * FreakOut: His original one was what caused him to become the first Kishin. * GigglingVillain: Extremely high-pitched and disturbing. * HannibalLecture: In the anime he gives one to Shinigami ([[CasualDangerDialogue while beating each other to a pulp]]) and another to Maka. * ImprobableWeaponUser: A vajra that fires laser beams? * InstantRunes: Summons them by clapping his hands. * LimpAndLivid: Pretty much his default way of moving, although to be honest, he has to learn to walk all over again. By the end of the anime he's standing upright. * MadGod * MeaningfulName: "Asura" are minor Buddhist gods, associated with violence and mad desire. * NoSell: In the anime, everybody's attacks are rendered useless against him. * OneWingedAngel: His giant True Kishin form in the anime. Although from there he reverts back into an even more powerful human shape. * RedEyesTakeWarning * ScarfOfAssKicking: His primary weapon, which can easily impale you. Plus they're made of his own skin. * [[SealedEvilInACan Sealed Madness In A Can]] * SlasherSmile: Not with great regularity, but being madness incarnate and all it's no surprise how well he can pull them off. * {{Ubermensch}}: Anime-only, from his ReasonYouSuckSpeech to Shinigami-Sama in Episode 48, he can be seen as this. * VillainousBreakdown: He's so paranoid and fearful that he has these at the drop of a hat, but his one at the end was a topper. !!Noah http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/33712.jpg The 3rd BigBad of the series, Noah originally appeared to being working for Arachne, until it's revealed that his true goal is to use the Book of Eibon to absorb and "collect" everything, which he feels in essence would make him "everything". [[spoiler: In truth, he's not actually human, but a projection from the Book of Eibon used to carry out its will.]] ----- * [[spoiler:ArtificialHuman: After he gets killed, the "Table Of Contents" in the Book of Eibon reveals he was a manifestation of the Greed chapter, called a "statue." Another one is sent out, this time of the Wrath chapter, thus leading to...]] ** [[spoiler:TheNthDoctor]] * BigCreepyCrawlies: His personal magic revolves around caterpillars and centipedes. On {{nightmare fuel}}. * TheCollector: He decided to add [[spoiler:Kid]] to his TomeOfEldritchLore along with anything else he finds interesting. ** CollectorOfTheStrange: Such "interesting" things include demons, sins, and a massive, inky abomination calling itself a [[EldritchAbomination Great Old One]]. *** He also collected [[spoiler:Excalibur. Freaking "He's So Annoying Everything Wants To Kill Him" Excalibur]]. You do ''NOT'' get stranger than that. * DissonantSerenity: Never shows anything stronger than mild irritation, [[spoiler:even when he's sucking people up into his book]]. * FlatCharacter: Noah wants to collect everything... and that's about all we get. He's got four or five separate [[MotiveRant Motive Rants]] amounting to exactly this. ** There's a reason for this. [[spoiler:Because he's nothing but a projection from the "Greed" chapter of the Book of Eibon.]] * GreatBigBookOfEverything[=/=]TomeOfEldritchLore: The book of Eibon. He thinks by collecting everything in the world that [[AGodAmI he will become a god]]. * LegacyCharacter: It would seem Noah would at least ''like'' to be something this, as he's used Eibon's name for "brand recognition", as mentioned above. * LetsGetDangerous: With GlowingEyesOfDoom and InstantRunes to go with it. ** When he twists his cap around, he's ''really'' decided to get serious. * TheMinionMaster: When he actually decides to get serious, he fights by summoning hordes of monsters and artifacts from the Book of Eibon. These include giant worms, flying gremlins, a Cyclops, ''tentacles with faces, a three-headed dragon with a cemetery on its back and each head wearing the mask of a famous slasher film star, and '''MICHELANGELO'S DAVID.''''' * NeverFoundTheBody: Strongly implied to have disappeared into the Book of Eibon at the end of his battle against Kid. * NiceHat * NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: [[spoiler:Stein, Sid, Marie, Nygus and Tezca]] never stood a chance. * OneManArmy: [[spoiler:As Spartoi found out.]] !!The Great Old One/The Black Mass The above mentioned abomination sealed with Noah's Book of Eibon. [[spoiler:It claims that it was one of the Eight Warlords, along with Shinigami, Ashura, Eibon, and that those eight are and were truly beings known as the Great Old Ones, "existences which drive men to madness", to paraphrase the thing.]] It can give power at the cost of one's sanity, similar to the effects of Black Blood. ----- * AmbiguousGender: It's a massive, inky black mass, and only ''very'' vaguely humanoid. So it seems safe to say that Atshushi is justified in ''this'' case. * EldritchAbomination: See for [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110402163345/souleater/images/thumb/7/74/Soul-eater-1211017.jpg/435px-Soul-eater-1211017.jpg yourself]]. Also, see what it calls itself. * FanNickname: Its title is often shortened to "GOO", which, nicely enough, also describes its apparent form quite well, other fans simply call it The Black Mass. * [[spoiler:[[{{ItsAllMyFault}} It's All Our Fault]]]]: [[spoiler: It states that the Great Old Ones' very existence influenced madness and that they were ultimately responsible for the madness that was Asura.]] * NoNameGiven: He only refers himself as one of the Great Old Ones. * PowerAtAPrice: As stated above, he can give people power at the cost of their sanity, throwing them into madness. * [[spoiler:SecretTestOfCharacter]] * [[spoiler:TheReveal]]: [[spoiler:"''Fragment of the Madness of Law... Fragment... of Shinigami."]] * SealedEvilInACan[=/=]SealedGoodInACan: Though reasons for how and why aren't clear, it seems to be existing within the Book of Eibon and though it starts out antagonizing, its alliance is ultimately sort of ambiguous. ** It's also staying there by choice, for its own vague reasons, and has the power to get out any time. !!Gopher http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/63266.jpg Gopher has a rather aggressive and violent nature, especially if it is concerning insults made towards Noah, whom he is both extremely protective over and obsessed about. Gopher personally believes that he is the only one who can satisfy Noah. Justin also describes Gopher as always being uptight. He later demonstrates a tendency to bite his top lip whenever he becomes enraged. ----- * CrazyJealousGuy * DeathGlare: Subverted; he tries, but just achieves a [[{{Narm}} ridiculously pouty inverted-V face]]. Unfortunately for Death the Kid, his pout is silly, but [[BerserkButton asymmetrical]]. ** It doesn't look asymmetrical at first, but Kid could see the differences, they're near microscopic. * DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: His face on [[http://www.mangareader.net/157-34060-14/soul-eater/chapter-65.html this page]]. Wow, just... wow. * FanNickname: Waffles. * LargeHam: "NOAH-SAMAAAAAAAAA!" * LoveMartyr: Again, to Noah. * {{Yandere}}: To the point of parody. Gopher seems to think ''everyone'' is a rival for "Noah-sama's" affection. !!Table of Contents (TOC) A small, unassuming creature that acts as a guide inside the Book of Eibon, leading its visitors through the book's chapters until they reach enlightenment or madness. [[spoiler: It's actually the book's "intelligence" and Noah's puppetmaster, and desires to take the Kishin for itself so it can "educate" the world with Asura's madness.]] * AffablyEvil: Its motivations certainly aren't good, but it's still polite, helpful, and true to its word. * EldritchAbomination: A relatively minor and benign one. * EvilMentor: [[spoiler: It wants to be one of these for the ''whole world,'' corrupting everything with the knowledge and secrets that Eibon locked away.]] * [[spoiler:Madness Mantra]]: [[spoiler: A quite epic one:]] --> [[spoiler:"I want to give guidance. I want to teach. I want to point. I want to show. I want to guide. I want to inform. I want to teach. I want to instruct. I want to explain. I want to enlighten. I want to initiate. I want to introduce. I want to instruct. I want to educate. Anyway...I want to teach".]] * [[spoiler:TheManBehindTheMan]]: [[spoiler: Is revealed to be the one behind Noah's actions (and who created him in the first place.]] * TomeOfEldritchLore: It essentially ''is'' one. * VerbalTic: Depending on the translation, "squideed" or "outdeed" for "indeed," followed by a hasty correction. !!Mifune http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/76117_7110.jpg -->Voiced by: KenjiroTsuda (JP), RobertMcCollum (EN) A samurai with a soul so strong that it counts for ninety-nine souls by itself. Black Star was about to take his soul but stopped when he saw how Mifune was protecting the young witch, Angela. He acts like a big brother or even a father to Angela. ------ * AntiVillain ** Made even clearer in the anime, in which his soul is blue (i.e. uncorrupted). * {{Badass}}: Undeniably so. ** BadassLongcoat ** BadassLongHair ** BadassNormal: When you consider that he isn't a Meister or Weapon, he becomes even more badass. As impossible as it may be. * BadassAndChildDuo: The badass to Angela's child. * BlueEyes: Manga only. * CoatCape * [[spoiler:DisappearsIntoLight: His death in the manga.]] * EverythingsBetterWithSamurai * {{Field Of Blades}}: It's called "Infinite Sword Style" for a reason. * FriendToAllChildren: ''His primary motivation''. Just in case, y'know, him being an AntiVillain wasn't clear enough. * HairOfGold: Manga only. * KatanasAreJustBetter * MasterSwordsman * MoralityPet: Angela. * OralFixationFixation: A straw. * {{Samurai}} * SimultaneousBladeSpam: Mifune can do this with his "infinite sword style" moves. Not only can he trap his opponent by pinning them down with sme of his many swords but he can make each sword strike multiple times by making them vibrate. * [[spoiler:SparedByTheAdaptation]] * WorthyOpponent: To Black☆Star. * WouldntHurtAChild * WhiteHairedPrettyBoy: Anime only. * [[spoiler:YouKilledMyFather]]: [[spoiler:Anime only, in which he is responsible for killing Black☆Star's father, White Star. Subverted in that he doesn't die. Also, Black☆Star holds no grudge against Mifune for that specifically, as he knows [[CompleteMonster his father]] deserved what was coming to him.]] !!The Clown Insanity incarnate, it was born as a result of the madness Asura released into the world. Maka and Soul first encountered it in a twisted factory where it tried to drive them both insane, but they defeated it with Maka's anti-demon wavelength. It escaped, and has since allied itself with Noah's team and with Justin Law in particular. Recently, Medusa has [[spoiler:taken to creating her own artificial Clowns: the Black Clown, which has similar capabilities to the original, and the Violet Clown, a "portable" model shaped like a crescent moon that defends her from insanity and amplifies her attacks]]. ------ * TheCorruption: It and the Black Clown spread insanity just by existing. ** In turn, the Clowns rise from the corruption of Asura's insanity. [[spoiler: Asura's dwelling is ''packed'' with them.]] * EldritchAbomination * ItGotWorse: There is now a bunch of these things running around. * MindRape: Pulls a particularly nasty one on Maka. * MonsterClown: On top of being scary as hell, its body is so twisted that it's barely recognizable as a clown at all. Presumably, one look at it would make Death the Kid's head explode. * Mooks: [[spoiler: Asura has his own army of Clowns.]] ** EliteMooks: [[spoiler: Gekkou, Shirahoshi and Kaguya are basically this, since they are more powerful than the other Clowns and have their own powers. Others appeared later.]] * NotQuiteDead: After being cut in half by Maka's Demon Hunter, it revived, freaked them out one last time, and disappeared. The attack apparently caused some lasting damage, because now its head is even more deformed than usual. !!Eibon -->Voiced by: YasuyukiKase (JP), ChristopherSabat (EN) The mysterious creator of BREW, the Eternal Spring, and the Book of Eibon, among other demon tools. Eibon was one of Shinigami's eight warriors, alongside Asura. Not much else is known about him. ------ * [[spoiler: TheAtoner]]: Anime only. [[spoiler: He sided with Arachne to save his lover from death, and turns himself into the key to unlock BREW for Shinigami to use when he failed.]] * TheFaceless: Due to wearing several masks and an ornate robe during his only comfirmed appearance. * [[spoiler:EldritchAbomination]]: [[spoiler:Called a Great Old One, along with the other Eight Warlords]]. * TheEngineer ** TheSmartGuy: He represents the Madness of Knowledge. * {{Necromantic}}: In the anime. * ShoutOut: To ClarkAshtonSmith and, by corellation, HPLovecraft. * [[spoiler:SoulJar]]: [[spoiler:The anime incarnation hid himself inside the Key of Eibon.]] !!The Flying Dutchman -->Voiced by: YasunoriMatsumoto (JP), PhilParsons (EN) The Dutchman is the soul of the ship Nidhogg, who fought Death the Kid while collecting souls for the Kishin. He later appeared as a factory which housed The Clown. Ultimately, he was destroyed, after being toyed with by Blair. ------ * GeniusLoci: A ship, and, later, a factory. * NiceHat: Of which he is very protective. * NonstandardCharacterDesign: Dude looks like an evil Muppet... * SelfDestructMechanism: His second form included one that would actually kill anyone who touched it; he tried to goad Blair into pressing it by claiming it would kill ''him''. However, Blair tricked him into pressing it himself, so he died, taking the factory with him. !!Rachel Boyd -->Voiced by: HoukoKuwashima (JP), CarrieSavage (EN) A little girl who lives in Shibusen with her parents. [[spoiler: And becomes Medusa's host unwillingly.]] ----- * [[spoiler: AdultFear: Your cute five-year-old (insert: daughter, sister, cousin, ward, neighbor, etc.) goes pets a stray dog while walk down the street. After that she starts talking to herself while watching TV for way too long and acting like a zombie. Later that night you have a glimpse of a super creepy viper, and your little girl cries and claims to have seen it too. The morning after, she keeps acting creepy and kills a spider with her own hands... and starts talking like an adult and acting cold to you, addressing you as if you were a stranger. And ''then'', she vanishes right in front of your porch, and you can't do anything abut it. '''Yikes.''']] * BarrierMaiden: Sorta. [[spoiler: Medusa not only possesses her, but uses her as a hostage: yeah, she ''did'' promise to leave Rachel's body, but it doesn't mean she can't use Rachel's age and pawn condition to her advantage.]] * CreepyChild: [[spoiler: Not her fault. Dammit, Medusa.]] * [[spoiler: EvilCostumeSwitch: She wears a black dress similar to Medusa's own when possessed.]] * [[spoiler: FilleFatale: Sorta, since Medusa keeps acting as TheVamp while in the poor little girl's body, doing so specially to drive Stein and others mad. [[{{Squick}} Aaaaaaauuuugh]].]] * [[spoiler: GrandTheftMe: On the receiving end.]] !!Ahab A weapon who takes the form of a giant harpoon gun. He is traditionally wielded by a different person for his village's annual [[GiantFlyer sky whale]] hunt. ------ * CoolOldGuy * HandicappedBadass: He's got a peg leg. Not that it stops him any. * TheHunter * MeaningfulName: He's named after Captain Ahab of ''MobyDick''. But unlike his namesake, who hunts one particular whale out of revenge, this guy hunts one ''type'' of whale for the genuine threat it poses against his village, and the world for that matter. * StudentAndMasterTeam: He's far older and more experienced than his meisters, and guides them during their hunts.
