A new organization that emerged from the remains of WWIII that was formally introduced in New Testament 2, who are so far the main antagonists of New Testament. They are a group of Sorcerers that are going against the Science Side, who are considered the victors of the war after Fiamma's defeat.

A new generation of the occult that had only started being passed down by humans once the concept of machines had been created, in that world where the winners of WorldWarIII, the Science side, had greatly spread, a type of occult that would devour it had been born.

[[folder:GREMLIN]]
!!Tropes common to the organization:
* AttackItsWeakPoint: Gremlin hates and yet fears Touma so much that they have either crafted or gathered spells specifically to use against him.
* ColonyDrop: They attempted to drop Radiosonde Castle on Academy City.
* HostageSituation[=/=]IHaveYourWife: They LOVE this.
* ItsPersonal: They hold [[spoiler:Touma Kamijou]] responsible for losing everything during the war and have marked him. They went so far as to [[spoiler: level mountains and rivers to change the ley lines of the planet in order to track him down.]]
** [[spoiler: Subverted as of Volume 3 of New Testament, where it is revealed in the end that the members who have a personal grudge against Touma and the Science Side are actually a front for the real GREMLIN and have no idea of the organization's true intentions. Not much has been revealed as of yet, but apparently it has something to do with Gungnir.]]
** [[spoiler:Double-subverted as of Volume 10. Othinus was apparently a mere pawn in the true GREMLIN's (composed of the Magic Gods of all the world's religions) plans to manipulate Touma's growth. Everything that happened was nothing but a trial to test Touma.]]
* MeaningfulName: They called themselves GREMLIN due to the fact their magic and tactics are specifically developed to combat Touma and the Espers of Academy City, like how stories of gremlins involve the creatures disrupting technology.
* NorseMythology: Most of their magic and many of their names are based off this.
* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: They would have caused an Ice Age that could wipe out the world if they had dropped Radiosonde Castle.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill:
** They were willing to cause an Ice Age in order to either destroy Academy City and the Espers, or just to track down Touma Kamijou. They even had the foresight to predict that there was a chance of him surviving it and left a message.
*** It's implied that they planned for the Colony Drop to fail just so that they could locate/determine the existence of Touma. It's remarked upon by [[spoiler: Kaori when she's fighting Mjölnir that the enemy seems rather apathetic and isn't opposed to destroying large portions of their own weapon during the battle, which indicates that they didn't put much stock in the attack actually succeeding.]]
** They triggered a volcanic eruption in Hawaii, causing untold destruction, [[spoiler: just to use the volcano's heat to forge a replica of Gungnir.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Tend to do this to lower henchmen after they finish their assignments.

[[folder:One-Eyed Othinus]]
[[quoteright:214:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/othinus_8619.png]]

One-Eyed Othinus is the leader of GREMLIN and currently holds the title of current Majin (Magic God). It's just Odin to friends.
----
* AGodAmI:
** "Unlike a certain failure, I am a pure magic god. If that is not enough for you to understand, my words are wasted on you. You should just give up on understanding."
** "It may be hard to believe, but I am a god. Do you really think the great Othinus would bother to fight a puny human?"
* TheArchmage: A Majin is the apex of magical power and talent.
* {{Badass}}: One of the most powerful beings in the Magic Side.
** LittleMissBadass: She looks like a 13-14-year-old girl.
* BadBoss: Will maim or terminate subordinates for [[DisproportionateRetribution minor infractions]] or [[ForTheEvulz out of boredom]].
* BigBad: From New Testament Vol 2 onwards.
* BlessedWithSuck[=/=]CursedWithAwesome: She has infinite potential as a Majin, however her success rate is always 50/50. While she may defeat the strongest opponents 50% of the time, she might also lose to the weakest opponents 50% of the time. She wants Gungnir to overcome this problem. Funny enough, this proves to be a formidable advantage when battling Imagine Breaker, and later, the Invisible Thing; since Touma has very bad luck, it tilts the scales in her advantage, to the point where victory is deemed miraculous.
* ChekhovsGun: Gungnir has been at the center of one short story, although it was a replica--what Othinus wants is ''the real deal''.
* TheChessmaster: Manipulates everybody, even the other members of GREMLIN.
* [[spoiler:DeliberateInjuryGambit: When Touma manages to dodge nine arrows from her crossbow, she fires the last one through her own body to take advantage of his only blind spot. It works.]]
* EvilCounterpart: Touma doesn't need a reason to help people. Othinus doesn't need a reason to destroy. Their powers also revolve around misfortune.
* ExposedToTheElements: She is completely unaffected by the cold despite her outfit, and Touma remarks that she feels warm. [[spoiler:However, in NT 10, since her powers are fading away, this is because she's dying and going numb.]]
* EyepatchOfPower: Over the right eye.
* EyeScream: Missing an eye, as expected of Odin, and wears a patch to cover it up. Later, [[spoiler: she pulls Gungnir out of her right eye socket. Her right eye is stored in Mimir's Well in Denmark. If it is returned to her, she will lose her powers and become human.]]
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn: Upon realizing Touma truly understands her and being touched that he trusted her to use Imagine Breaker better than he did, she instead restores the world to the way it was, and resolves to be killed to atone for her sins. Touma then decides to save her.]]
* [[spoiler:HeelRealization: She realizes that she had been so obsessed with finding a way to return to her original world, that she had been willing to hurt and antagonize everybody, and that she had forgotten the real reason she wanted this: to find someone who understood her. Then she realizes it has been so long that she can barely even remember her original world, and that Touma's world wasn't so bad.]]
* [[spoiler:{{Hypocrite}}: She destroys Dáinsleif [[PragmaticVillainy because the end of the world would ruin her plans]]. What does she do once she obtains the real Gungnir and completes her goal? See WhamLine below.]]
* IAmNotLeftHanded: [[spoiler:Once Touma manages to destroy Gungnir, she reveals a crossbow bigger than the '''planet'''.]]
* KneelBeforeZod: Demands this of Touma at one point. Of course, he doesn't.
-->'''Othinus''': It is time you learned your place and prostrated yourself in the depths of the earth, human!!
* LastEpisodeNewCharacter: Was mentioned by Ollerus in the last line of Volume 22.
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: [[spoiler: Is completely nonchalant about accidentally blowing off her own right arm in NT Vol. 6, since Marian is on hand to repair it. Later, she doesn't react to firing her crossbow through her own body, which automatically heals itself.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:She tricked people that were loose members of GREMLIN into doing her bidding so she and her close affiliates didn't have to show themselves.]]
** Taken to new heights in [=NT8=], where it's revealed [[spoiler: she's just been using the entirety of GREMLIN as a scapegoat while she herself completes the real Gungnir behind everyone's backs.]]
* MeaningfulName: Othinus is the Latin name for Odin. It is used in the book ''Literature/GestaDanorum'', which tells Danish history using Norse Gods as characters.
** PropheticName:[[spoiler:Othinus symbolizes the Norse God Odin, much like Ollerus does; and from what we know, this carries over to their relationship, as that also symbolizes how Ollerus temporarily took Odin's throne--hell, Ollerus has the power of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hli%C3%B0skj%C3%A1lf Hliðskjálf]], which is the name of Odin's throne for crying out loud! But then, Odin reclaimed the throne--much like how Othinus claimed the title of Majin by stealing it from Ollerus.]]
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Othinus is a Latin variant on Odin, King of the Norse Gods.
* {{Necromancer}}: She is able to create Einherjar by inserting gold into corpses.
* NotSoDifferent: [[spoiler:By the end of NT Vol 9, she realizes Touma has become her equal, a person traveling the multiverse searching for home, and the only person who truly understands her.]]
* PhysicalGod: As a Majin, [[spoiler:the highest position next to ''The One Above God'' Fiamma attained briefly. Not only does she take on the weakened Fiamma and Ollerus, but also goes against Touma ''then'' the Invisible Thing.]]
* PowerCopying: After getting attacked once by Ollerus' [[spoiler:"Turn into a Fairy"]] spell, Othinus immediately masters the never-before-seen technique and uses it on him.
* [[spoiler:PragmaticVillainy: Destroys Dáinsleif, since the end of the world would ruin her plans.]]
* RealityWarper: As expected of a Magic God. [[spoiler:She can even create new worlds, but she can't change them back without Imagine Breaker.]]
* [[spoiler:ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: She was once the Magic God 10,000 years ago, and after giving that position up ages ago, reclaimed it from Ollerus in the present.]]
* RuleOfSymbolism: Represents Odin from NorseMythology.
* SamusIsAGirl: Many people assume a mage who symbolizes Odin would be a man.
* TheSociopath
* {{Stripperiffic}}: She wears about as much clothing as [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Mu-12]]. In other words, almost non-existent. [[WordOfGod The artist explained]] that she wears so little because of her arrogance over being so powerful. She wears no protection to flaunt the fact that enemy attacks mean nothing to her.
* TheUnfettered: [[spoiler:Consider the Radiosonde Castle incident in which entire mountains were flattened just to track Imagine Breaker, and the fact she had her puppets make Kilauea erupt so Dvergr could use it as a forge to get closer to crafting Gungir, and you've got a case in point. Don't even get started on the whole "theocratize the United States" plan.]]
** [[spoiler: And now consider that all of that was merely to distract people from realizing her ''true'' plan to forge Gungir herself.]]
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:To the Magic Gods of all of the world's religions who make up the true GREMLIN. They claim she is nothing but a failed experiment and a tool they used to manipulate Touma's growth.]]
* TheUsurper: Stole the title of Majin from [[NiceGuy Ollerus]].
* VillainousBreakdown: For the longest time, Othinus viewed Touma dispassionately and with contempt; an inferior loser not even worth mentioning. Then in [=NT9=], [[spoiler:her failure to break his will despite the '''massive''' TraumaCongaLine she subjects him to and him gaining the ability to predict and evade her attacks leave her completely enraged, even grinding her teeth.]]
* WhamLine: [[spoiler:"These small fights are such a pain. I think I'll just end the world." She succeeds.]]
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Hates and fears Imagine Breaker, the one thing that can reverse the distortions of the world needed for GREMLIN's plans to succeed. Othinus considers Touma himself an insignificant nobody and is only concerned about Imagine Breaker.
* WindsOfDestinyChange: If she gains Gungnir, she will be able to control her success rate and change it to a 100% chance of victory, making her pretty much invincible.
* WorthyOpponent: [[spoiler:At the end of [=NT9=], she acknowledges Touma as one. Pretty significant considering she did not see Ollerus or Fiamma of the Right as these.]]
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: [[spoiler:Due to seemingly warping reality multiple times, Othinus has forgotten what the world was like before the changes. Her desire to return back to that world is what is really drove her to action in the first place. Unfortunately, she can only make changes, not undo them.]]

[[folder: Mjölnir]]
!!!Hammer of the Thunder God
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/300px-Mjlnir_7704.jpg]]

Mjölnir is a sorcerer who was at first mistaken for a spiritual item but in actuality has optimized their physical body into various the forms of the hammer. Guarded Radiosonde Castle and fought with Kanzaki Kaori on even ground for a time.
----
* AmbiguousGender: Though the other members of GREMLIN tend to refer to it with female pronouns.
* BodyHorror: What Mjölnir did to his/her body for the sake of power.
* MoreDakka: Can deploy magical crossbows and flintlock pistols that fire at supersonic speeds.
* RuleOfSymbolism: Mjölnir's magic has elements of its counterpart in NorseMythology.
* ShapeshifterWeapon: He/She is one!
* ShockAndAwe: Mjölnir is Thor's hammer, with all the powers that represents.
* SuperEmpowering: As Thor's hammer, it can grant Thor a massive power boost via a spiritual link.
* TalkingWeapon: Can communicate by either vibrating or forming mouths along its surface.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Marian Slingeneyer, obeying her, protecting her when she is downed, and expressing concern for Marian's mental health.
* WeaksauceWeakness: In the Toaruverse, flight spells are easy. But thanks to a certain parable from the Bible, flight-canceling spells are even easier. Mjölnir's strategy against Kanzaki revolves around keeping her from remembering that Mjölnir is a magician, not some sort of inhuman weapon. Once Kanzaki remembers that, she drops Mjölnir like a rock.

[[folder: Cendrillion]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Ni_r11_291.jpg]]

A French sorcerer of GREMLIN who first appears in New Testament 3. She uses Literature/{{Cinderella}} as the basis of her magic, [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower which is a lot more dangerous than you might think]].
----
* {{Badass}}[=/=]DarkActionGirl: [[spoiler:It took [[LittleMissBadass Birdway]] to bring her down, after she pretty much held off Kamijou, Mikoto, Mark Space and Birdway's men, Hamazura, and she was about to nail Accelerator in the process.]]
* BodyHorror[=/=]AndIMustScream: At the end of New Testament 3, she was turned into a table Mjölnir style--''except against her will''.
** [[spoiler: Ollerus fixed her so she can shapeshift now.]]
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: Most of her powers come from her dress and shoes.
* [[spoiler:FountainOfYouth: Because Mugino didn't use all of the powder when returning her to human form, she reconstituted as a younger girl.]]
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: You would think magic based on a RagsToRiches FairyTale would be harmless? Not so fast.
** RuleOfSymbolism: [[spoiler: She is very agile based on how Cinderella's fairy godmother improved her dancing. She is very fast based on the pumpkin carriage driving Cinderella around. She can remotely mutilate anyone's feet that are not the same size as hers based on [[TheGirlWhoFitsThisSlipper the glass slipper fitting]]. And her weakness is of course based on how Cinderella's gifts disappear WhenTheClockStrikesTwelve.]]
* HourOfPower: Her magic stops working at midnight or dawn, [[spoiler: which Birdway emulated using a tanker truck...[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome that she hit her with and set on fire to resemble a sunrise.]]]]
* LanguageBarrier: Is the only character in the series so far that does not speak Japanese. Fortunately, there is often someone around who can speak French (like Mikoto) to translate.
* MeaningfulName: Cendrillon is French for Cinderella.
* NakedOnArrival: After she gained the ability to shapeshift, she can't take her clothes with her. [[spoiler: In New Testament 5, she smuggles herself into Academy City by turning into a powder and mailing herself. Mugino receives the package, "cooks" her, and she returns to human form naked.]]
* {{Revenge}}: What she wants against the main members of GREMLIN for the BodyHorror incident. She's even willing to [[EnemyMine help Touma]] if that gets what she wants.
* UnwittingPawn: GREMLIN doesn't care about her and sees her as an expendable lackey.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler: Once she was captured. Subverted that she was faking her FateWorseThanDeath as part of a plot to mislead the heroes in regards to Saronia's true abilities. But then there's a DoubleSubversion when she ends up encountering Marian Slingeneyer. Marian states that she's a true member of GREMLIN, while all those who participated in invading Hawaii were sacrificial pawns, whose actions distracted the rest of the world from GREMLIN's true objectives in Hawaii. Marian is also the one who turned Mjölnir into a cylinder, and now intends to use those same skills on Cendrillon.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Saronia A. Irivika]]
[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/saronia_7897.png]]

A Russian sorcerer of GREMLIN who appears as the major antagonist in in New Testament 3.
----
* GreenThumb: Controls magical plants that have various effects like mind control or paralyzing pollen. [[spoiler: Her magic is also concentrated in a plant hidden deep in her enclave. When Touma destroys it, her power is broken.]]
* HostageSituation[=/=]IHaveYourWife: [[spoiler: She manipulated some people into doing her bidding by holding their children hostage.]]
--> [[spoiler:"It truly is frightening," the sorcerer '''(Saronia)''' whispered. "All I had to say was that I would have you tear your head apart like a frozen orange and he was ready to do it."]]
* IAmNotLeftHanded: [[spoiler: She makes people think that her power only works with Russian plants, and that a person can become immune to her powers if they can beat her in gambling, like in the myth of the Leshy. Her power works with any plant, and gambling with her is pointless.]]
* IcyBlueEyes: In keeping with her evil attitude.
* {{Irony}}: She represents a male mythological creature. Also, she prefers to be indoors, but her power requires her to go outside and have gardening skills to be effective.
* KickChick: Her fighting style specializes in kicking.
* [[spoiler: {{Revenge}}[=/=]RevengeBeforeReason: She wants to get revenge on the nations and individuals who profited from World War 3 while Russia was torn apart, even if it means going after Olay Blueshake, GREMLIN's apparent client/sponsor in the invasion of Hawaii, and Touma.]]
* RuleOfSymbolism: Her ability is based off the legend of the Leshy, a male woodland spirit of Slavic mythology. The Leshy is the ruler of the forest and the king of all animals that live there, and loves gambling.
* UnwittingPawn: GREMLIN doesn't care about her and sees her as an expendable lackey.
* ZettaiRyouiki: As seen in the picture.

[[folder: Marian Slingeneyer]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/300px-MarianSlingeneyer_profile_3089.jpg]]

A Dvegr, and a central member of GREMLIN.
----
* BodyHorror: Her human reshaping magic, used on Mjölnir [[spoiler: and later Cendrillon]]. In fact her primary form of fighting revolves heavily upon this.
** AndIMustScream: Does this to everyone she doesn't kill.
** BloodierAndGorier: Part of the reason she creates so much carnage is to get a psychological advantage over her opponents.
** CruelAndUnusualDeath: What she does to everyone she does kill. One example is when she fused both of a {{mook}}'s hands together and turned them into a faucet. Then she turned the faucet on and let him watch helplessly as all the blood drained from his body.
* CantHoldHerLiquor: Cannot handle alcohol at all.
* CoolSword: Dáinsleif - an incredibly dangerous weapon [[spoiler: linked to Ragnarok]] which Marian is forbidden from unsheathing.
** ArtifactOfDoom: If the blade is unsheathed completely, [[spoiler: it will trigger [[{{Gotterdammerung}} Ragnarok]]. Othinus eventually destroys the sword, considering it too dangerous. Marian has to use a barrier before unsheathing her second copy of the sword in her second fight with Touma to avoid affecting or destroying the world.]]
** EmotionBomb: When the blade is unsheathed slightly, [[spoiler: it causes a foe's heart to stop out of fear of what would happen if the blade was fully unsheathed... It doesn't work on Touma, even without Imagine Breaker, because [[{{Badass}} he does not fear it at all]].]]
** GravityMaster: The scabbard can be used to create a miniature black hole, which sucks things in until the wielder decides to release it as a powerful blade due to the pent up energy.
** SummonMagic: [[spoiler:Dáinsleif once unsheathed completely has the ability to summon calamities belonging to any mythology.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Morally absent or not, she didn't take [[spoiler: Bersi AKA Kihara Kagun's death well.]]
** UnstoppableRage: [[spoiler: In response to Bersi's death she tried to summon the Apocalypse! Othinus quickly disapproved of it due her actions being RevengeBeforeReason.]]
* GirlishPigtails: Has seen in the picture.
* {{Meganekko}}: As seen in the picture.
* RazorWire: Loki's Net, a magical net that can move on its own and slice through nearly anything it touches. She has to use tongs to safely handle it.
* RuleOfSymbolism: She represents the dwarves who forge the mystical tools and weapons in NorseMythology.
* SpontaneousWeaponCreation: [[spoiler: Using Draupnir she can produce any magic sword or spear usable by humans.]]
* SummonMagic: She's able to summon her creations using gold as a conduit.
* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: [[spoiler:While fighting Touma, she gets so angry and frustrated over how well Touma is doing that she threatens to draw Dáinsleif completely and trigger Ragnarok. Touma counters that if she had the guts to do that, she would have done it immediately. Marian then realizes that she ''is'' too afraid to draw the sword.]]
* TeacherStudentRomance: She taught Bersi how to use magic, and they ended up in an intimate relationship.
* UltimateBlacksmith: Her true role in GREMLIN. She is to help forge Gungnir with her abilities.
* VaporWear: All she wears are overalls with nothing underneath.

----
* BadassLongcoat: Wears a coat that reaches to his ankles.
* BadassTeacher: Was a teacher in Academy City right before he left.
* [[spoiler:CameBackWrong]]: [[spoiler:After his death, Othinus brought him back as one of her undead minions. He still has all his powers and memories, but he's now a SoullessShell with no emotions who just does what is commanded of him with impersonal efficiency.]]
* [[spoiler:CrazyPrepared]]: [[spoiler:He installed a device in his neck to allow him to break free from Othinus' control after being turned undead. He's still a SoullessShell, but he's able to protect the innocent like he wanted.]]
* DeathSeeker: [[spoiler: He became this after killing an attacker manipulated by another Kihara. In New Testament Volume 4, he and Byouri Kihara take each other down in a MutualKill.]]
* GenreSavvy: When he finds a girl who seems to be in a situation way over her head, he tells her to find Touma Kamijou if she wants to live, as girls around him tend to do inexplicably fine, regardless of the situation.
* LaserBlade: His sword, Whitting, manifests as one of these.
* ManInWhite: His entire attire is white.
* MeaningfulName: His given name means "Module".
* NearDeathExperience: His field of study when he was a researcher.

One of the true members of GREMLIN who was sent to oversee the events in Baggage City.
-----
* BerserkButton: He '''hates''' having to do any physical work.
* MasterOfIllusion: Fitting for a mage who represents a being who tricked Thor, Þjálfi, and Loki with illusions. He can even make someone [[YourMindMakesItReal feel like they are burning with an image of a fire]].
* MessyHair: As seen in the picture.
* PerpetualSmiler: His smile is always out of place.
* RuleOfSymbolism: He represents Útgarða-Loki (not to be confused with Loki, God of Mischief) from NorseMythology.
* SquishyWizard: He mentions that as an illusionist he isn't good at physical work.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Abruptly vanishes without explanation near the end of New Testament Vol 4.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Sigyn]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/300px-Sigyn_profile_4525.jpg]]

One of the true members of GREMLIN who was sent to oversee the events in Baggage City.
-----
* CompellingVoice: She can give suggestions to people, who will perform the actions 100% accurately.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: She will sell out anyone to benefit or save herself.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: She is disgusted by Marian Slingeneyer performing BodyHorror on people.
* MagicEnhancement: When she controls someone, they become powerful enough to follow the order. It is noted that if it worked on herself, she could simply pump herself up until she became a Majin. Fortunately, it doesn't, and there is no way she would ever do that for somebody else.
* NoSenseOfDirection: During the invasion of Baggage City, she keeps getting lost and asking Marian for directions.
* RuleOfSymbolism: She represents Sigyn, Loki's wife from NorseMythology.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Abruptly vanishes without explanation near the end of New Testament Vol 4.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Thor]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/300px-Thor_1280.jpg]]

Leader of GREMLIN's direct combat.
----
* [[AmbiguouslyGay Ambiguously]] [[InLoveWithYourCarnage In Love With Your]] HeroicResolve: He's obsessed with Touma and prone to sounding... rather[[labelnote:*]]"I’m glad to see all the more how extraordinary you are.”[[/labelnote]] questionable[[labelnote:*]]"I thought that was who the ‘wonderful enemy’ I had imagined was!”[[/labelnote]] when[[labelnote:*]]"You are not shining in the slightest right now.”[[/labelnote]] he's[[labelnote:*]]"You’re so amazing! You withstood my first attack without destroying anything!!”[[/labelnote]] displaying[[labelnote:*]]"I’m all fired up. My engine has been running full-throttle ever since I first heard about you.”[[/labelnote]] it[[labelnote:*]]"But you have an excellent look in your eyes now. You’ve regained that look. That is the look my enemy needs. The kind of fight that is satisfying no matter who wins is finally looking like a real possibility. I need a fight like that to get what I want.”[[/labelnote]].
* {{Badass}}: Kicked the crud out of Touma for a while until he turned the tables.
* BestFriendManual: From the moment they met he knew exactly what to say and do to get Touma to move exactly the way he wants without even needing to [[HonestyIsTheBestPolicy lie, manipulate or even hide what he's trying to do]]. [[EnemyMine Friendship]] [[BirdsOfAFeather came]] [[FireForgedFriends later]]. He's so good, he can get Touma to [[spoiler:fight him for real by taking his own self being hostage]] even after [[TrueCompanions the former was already past the]] [[VitriolicBestBuds vitriolic]] [[TrueCompanions stage in their relationship]].
* BloodKnight: Relishes fighting a mighty opponent like Touma. [[spoiler:Basically everything he did in New Testament 5 & 6 was to ensure that he would get a proper fight against Touma. He even shot himself with a handgun just to ensure that Touma and himself would start the battle with similar injuries.]]
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Deconstructed. He saves people in need, in the process gaining power, which he uses to save more people, gaining more power, and keeps repeating the cycle. Its gotten to the point where he doesn't even know if he wants power in order to save people, or saves people in order to gain more power.
* DeerInTheHeadlights: [[spoiler:When Touma tricks him into stepping in front of a train, he gets so shocked that he doesn't try to teleport or even move out of the way, and gets run over.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: While he's most likely a WellIntentionedExtremist at worst, [[spoiler:he was absolutely ''done'' with GREMLIN after what they did in Hawaii and Baggage City]]. He even blames himself to some extent for not noticing it in time and preventing it.
** He LOVES fighting but hates getting innocents involved even more.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: In an off-hand comment, [[spoiler:Bayloupe in vol 17 essentially reveals the true abilities of Thor almost 10 volumes before his actual appearance.]]
* TheGadfly: Approaches Touma as a girl and never lets him hear the end of it about his reputation with females even though he actually does know better. Also takes a crack at Mikoto later on.
* GenderBender: [[MasterOfDisguise Can transform into a girl]]. [[spoiler: He's so good at this that he was able to briefly fool Touma into believing that he was actually Mikoto.]]
** MasterActor: Once he's transformed, you'd never be able to tell he isn't really a girl until he reveals himself.
* HardWorkHardlyWorks: He's trying to avert this. He's not a Saint, someone with the power to save the world, or a Magic God, he's just a regular magician. His goal is to reach the levels of these beings through sheer effort and hard work.
* HonorBeforeReason: [[spoiler: In NT Vol 6, he shoots himself to make the fight even since Touma was also shot.]]
* IAmNotLeftHanded: [[spoiler: In NorseMythology, Thor was originally a God who controlled all forms of weather, the seasons, and natural disasters, only being restricted to the function of a Lightning God later on. GREMLIN's Thor can use much more than just the Lightning God power of Thor, but tends not to unless his opponent is powerful enough to force him to. He congratulates Touma for being able to force him to use his full power.]]
* LaserBlade: From his fingertips.
* LevelGrinding: Says he seeks strong opponents because he becomes more powerful and skilled with every fight, with a bigger boost the stronger the opponent.
* MadeOfIron: He can continue fighting even after getting shot and having his wrists broken. [[spoiler:He even shrugs off getting hit by a train.]]
* MagicKnight: One of the most straightforward examples in the series.
* NotSoDifferent[=/=]BirdsOfAFeather: Take away the humility from misfortune along with the block on developing supernatural abilities and add the [[NominalHero childishly]] [[TheUnfettered extremist]] nature the magicians of Index verse tend to develop, he's basically Touma if he never had the Imagine Breaker.
* PersonOfMassDestruction[=/=]OneManArmy: His speciality is war. It's gotten to the point where he can't "level up" any further without seriously fighting someone on his level...which would mean entire cities being destroyed in the process. [[spoiler:This is the reason why he wishes to fight Touma so badly, as he can go all out without worrying about the damage due to Imagine Breaker.]]
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Destroys [[{{Irony}} TOUMA'S]] illusions -punch in the face and all- to snap him out of his HeroicBSOD. Also delivers [[WhatTheHellHero a decent one]] to [[WellIntentionedExtremist Silvia]].
* ReliableTraitor: [[spoiler: Touma forms an EnemyMine with him in New Testament Volume 5, knowing full well that Thor will eventually try to betray him, since Thor is really effective at what he does. He's also not very loyal to GREMLIN.]]
* TheRival: For Touma, quote unquote [[WordOfGod ultimate "rival"]].
* RuleOfSymbolism: Like his name suggests, his powers are based on Thor from NorseMythology.
* ShockAndAwe: Fitting for a mage based on Thor. However, he needs to be physically or spiritually connected to Mjölnir to use this ability.
* SuperStrength: Again, Thor based mage.
* TakeAThirdOption: He IS the third option during the conflict between [[spoiler:GREMLIN and Birdway's faction for Fraulein Kreutune where Touma has a bone to pick with both sides.]]
* TeleportSpam: [[spoiler:As Almighty Thor, he has this ability, though he clarifies that he's actually moving the world and not himself.]]
* VictoryIsBoring: After gaining the ability to TeleportSpam, he comments that being so powerful is so boring when nobody can fight back and give him a real challenge. [[spoiler:He pays for his complacency when Touma tricks him into stepping in front of a train.]]
* WildCard: [[spoiler: At the end of NT Vol 6, he defects from GREMLIN, and is now on nobody's side but his own.]]
* WorthyOpponent: Constantly looking for these but Touma seems to be his favorite.
-->"I can have a battle amidst such stinging tension that I have no idea who will win…and as a conflict between a ridiculously huge power and a negating power, it won't even cause that much damage!! Has there ever been a more convenient or profitable battle than this, Kamijou-chan!?"

[[folder:Loki]]
Introduced in New Testament 8. He is one of the guardians of GREMLIN's base.

* BadassBoast:
-->'''Loki''': My victory was assured from the moment you set foot here.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Created an artificial sky over GREMLIN's base, so that [[spoiler:any spy would read the wrong stars and determine an incorrect location for the base.]]
* EvilOldFolks: He's elderly. Though he seems polite, his opponents can tell there's nothing but malice in his heart.
* ProperlyParanoid: Remarks that he doesn't trust any of his teammates besides his leader. [[spoiler:It pays off because Thor was really Ollerus in disguise, and Loki's trick with the artificial sky made Ollerus send his backup to the wrong place.]]
* RuleOfSymbolism: He represents Loki, God of Mischief, from NorseMythology.
* SharpDressedMan: Wears a silk hat and tailcoat.
* TheTrickster: He's Loki, after all, and he's ''very'' tricky.

[[folder:Freyja]]
[[quoteright:189:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/freyja_7587.png]]

Introduced in New Testament 8. She creates and controls several of GREMLIN's minions.
-----
* AbusiveParents: See WeHaveReserves.
* AxCrazy: For one thing, she laughs when Touma destroys several of her children.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:When she became pregnant, everyone around her branded her unborn child evil and marked it for destruction. She went on the run, constantly trying to keep her unborn daughter safe. Her daughter, who is aware of everything, ''tried to commit suicide in the womb'' to spare her mother, but failed. Realizing her mother would never survive on her own, she took control of her so she could use her formidable magic that her mother could not. Acting through Freyja, she took sanctuary in GREMLIN.]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: When some random guy annoyed her by asking if he could borrow her cellphone, she casually killed him in broad daylight, terrifying everyone around them.
* [[spoiler:FetusTerrible]]: [[spoiler:She's really an innocent woman who has no knowledge of the Magic side. Her daughter from within the womb is controlling her like a puppet and is extremely intelligent and skilled in magic.]]
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn]]: [[spoiler:Freyja's daughter is convinced to stand down and return control to her when Touma points out that Index can perform the spell that will heal Freyja and allow her to be born safely.]]
* [[spoiler:LockedOutOfTheLoop: When her daughter surrenders and returns control to her, she politely asks where she is and what is going on. Everybody just shrugs and has her carried to safety.]]
* [[spoiler:LongestPregnancyEver]]: [[spoiler:She's been pregnant for two years. Her baby daughter stays inside her to power her up and keep her alive after she had been critically injured.]]
* MotherOfAThousandYoung: She regularly gives birth to several monsters, including Níðhöggr, the dragon that gnaws at the roots of the WorldTree, and Hræsvelgr, the eagle that devours the dead.
* PregnantBadass: She's heavily pregnant, yet can do feats like jumping onto a moving train, and can run around at a normal pace.
* RuleOfSymbolism: She represents Freyja, Goddess of Fertility, from NorseMythology.
* SummonMagic: She can conjure up monsters at will. She also refers to them as her children and says that she draws power and material from her pregnant womb to create them, calling the process giving birth to them.
* WeHaveReserves: She doesn't care when her children are killed, because she can always give birth to another indefinitely. This philosophy is best represented by her child Hildisvíni, a massive boar that devours everything around it, even her other children, to get bigger and stronger.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Her unborn daughter controlling her is only working with GREMLIN to keep her mother, the only being she cares for, safe. Touma points out that Othinus is evil, sees everyone as expendable, and will kill them as soon as their part is completed, but she claims Othinus is a savior.]]
* ZergRush: Summons her children en mass to overwhelm Touma.

-->'''Hel''': I can draw out causes of death from the residual information of the dead, store them in existing weapons, and ''swap out the causes of death''. I can strangle you with a sword, drown you with a train, crush you with a blowtorch, and burn you with a handgun. That is a suitable reason to bear the name of Hel, the queen of Niflheimr who rules over the dead.
** AnIcePerson: By channeling death by freezing. She channeled it into a knife that freezes solid anything it stabs. By stabbing the ocean, she froze all the water in a 100 kilometer radius.
