** When she decides to recruit an opposite number to Ichigo, Queen Suzume passes over troubled approval-seeker Miyako entirely, and instead picks Tamanegi, a cruel and violent young DarkActionGirl who [[PsychoElectro zaps people with lightning for kicks]].

* '''Straight''': [[PlayingWithFire Ichigo]]'s {{Rival}}, serving under [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Sangria]], is Miyako, an ElegantGothicLolita with [[AnIcePerson an ice-centric repertoire]] and a DarkAndTroubledPast, with the Queen serving as her ParentalSubstitute. Unfortunately for her, the Queen is also obviously a TreacherousAdvisor.

** Queen Sangria has taken blood collected from one of Ichigo's battles with her and used her dark magic to construct a copy of Ichigo from it, who she names Miyako. Although they share similar powers, the taint of evil has twisted her into something far more sinister. After being defeated by her twin, the dark magic's hold over her is exorcised, leaving her a more complete copy willing to join Ichigo's side.

** Ringo is Ichigo's EvilCounterpart and serves Queen Sangria, but she is cheery, peppy, and upbeat (though a bit worryingly obssessed with fighting...).
** Miyako has all the traits and appearances of a typical Dark Magical Girl but Queen Sangria [[PetTheDog genuinely cares for Miyako]], and because of this, Miyako is completely loyal and well-adjusted.

* '''Zig Zagged''': Queen Sangria has two chosen champions, Miyako and Ringo, whom she pits against Ichigo. Ringo gleefully [[BloodKnight lusts for battle]] while Miyako is [[ShrinkingViolet quiet and withdrawn]], making her appear like a classic DarkMagicalGirl...however, as their pasts are gradually revealed, it's ''Ringo'' who has an incredibly DarkAndTroubledPast, while Miyako is more of a HolierThanThou IceQueen. Both, however, ulimately serve as {{Evil Counterpart}}s to Ichigo, providing dark reflections of her HotBlooded and {{Pride}}ful nature. Upon their defeat, Ringo [[HeelFaceTurn switches sides]] while Miyako simply leaves -- however, Ringo's turn is less about redemption and more about becoming a full-fledged DeathSeeker as "[[TheAtoner atonement]]'', while Miyako is tracking down one of [[ThereAreNoTherapists those elusive therapists]], and eventually returns to pull a BigDamnHeroes.

** There is no direct counterpart to the heroic magical girl; Queen Sangria just uses a MonsterOfTheWeek tactic.

* '''Invoked''': Queen Sangria intentionally sought out mentally scarred young girls that she could indoctrinate into her ranks and set against any would-be heroes. Likewise, Ichigo's goal in battle is not to 'defeat' but to 'befriend' because she wants to build allies while reducing Sangria's forces.
* '''Exploited''': Miyako is jaded enough to know that a WideEyedIdealist like Ichigo would be easy to fool into thinking she's a DMG and so acts like one so she gain her trust so she'll be able to back stab her in the name of Queen Sangria.

** After the first fight between Ichigo and Miyako, Queen Sangria sees hesitation in Miyako's eyes upon her return, and, refusing to take the chance that her servant could be turned against her, she obliterates her.
** When she decides to recruit an opposite number to Ichigo, Queen Sangria passes over troubled approval-seeker Miyako entirely, and instead picks Tamanegi, a cruel and violent young DarkActionGirl who [[PsychoElectro zaps people with lightning for kicks]].
* '''Discussed''': "Sangria is just using you, Miyako! You mean nothing to her! I'm going to [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha befriend you]] so we can get ice cream together! {{Finishing Move}}: [[ThePowerOfTheSun Sun's Fury!]]"

But she knows Miyako is strong, and that she doesn't deserve to be hurting the way she is. Miyako sees that Ichigo really does have her best interests at heart, and Queen Sangria dosn't, and accepts Ichigo's friendship.

* '''Straight''': [[PlayingWithFire Ichigo]]'s {{Rival}}, serving under [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Sangria]], is Budou, an ElegantGothicLolita with [[AnIcePerson an ice-centric repertoire]] and a DarkAndTroubledPast, with the Queen serving as her ParentalSubstitute. Unfortunately for her, the Queen is also obviously a TreacherousAdvisor.
* '''Exaggerated''': Budou's past is a TraumaCongaLine of abuse, angst, suffering, and misery that would take years upon years of therapy to unravel. Her big fight with Ichigo causes tremendous damage and spills a great deal of blood. As soon as it ends they are the best of friends, never seen apart, and Budou is just as happy as Ichigo.
* '''Downplayed''': Budou is a child to loving, but poor, parents. Her childhood is troublesome instead of traumatic and allows her to become a magical girl using magic that's powered by {{greed}}. The nature of her power drives her to stealing and she is eventually stopped by Ichigo, whose magic is powered by friendship. The nature of ''her'' power leads her to be friends with Budou and help out at her place. They become good friends.
