!! Tatsumi
-->'''Voiced by:''' Sōma Saitō

The main protagonist of the story who embarked on a quest towards the capitol in hopes of joining the military and earning enough money to send back to his impoverished village. After narrowly escaping an evil ploy by sadistic nobles Tatsumi soon learns about the true corruption within the Empire and is recruited into the ranks of Night Raid whose task is to rid the Empire of this corruption by slaying the wicked. Further on whilst competing in a fighting tournament sponsored by the Empire he unknowingly manages to steal Esdeath's heart who unceremoniously decides to make Tatsumi her lover, much to his discomfort.

Tatsumi is widely regarded by many, both allies and enemies, to have an immense amount of hidden potential despite his young age. Lacking the skill and experience of his fellow allies in Night Raid, he makes up for the fact by becoming increasingly more powerful with every battle, with his rapid growth rate being noted by stronger members such as Akame and Bulat.


* AccidentalPervert: The day he needs to go on a mission with Mine, he enters her room without knocking to wake her up and ends up walking in on her changing. She then starts shooting him.
* {{Adorkable}}: Quite popular with the ladies and also prone to getting laughed at for his silly mannerisms by the other members of Night Raid.
* {{Badass}}: It's a given when you can survive battles against the best assassins and soldiers the empire has to offer.
** BadassAdorable: It's a trait that he's very well known for. Just ask [[VillainousCrush Esdeath]].
** BadassInANiceSuit: During his battle against the Three Beasts.
** BadassInDistress: Played with. When Esdeath abducts him, she has no intention of hurting him and isn't aware of the fact that he's a member of Night Raid and is put into a worse distress when [[spoiler:Syura traps him inside the palace in front of Budo and Esdeath who [[OhCrap finally learns that he is a Night Raider]].]]
** BadassNormal: Could stand up to Teigu users despite having no Teigu.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: [[spoiler:[[TakeUpMySword Later inherits Bulat's Teigu.]]]]
* BreakTheCutie: In the first chapter he loses [[spoiler:both of his childhood friends]] and it just goes down hill from there.
* ButtMonkey: He really can't get a break. He's not as much as [[ChivalrousPervert Lubbock]] but he's definitely one when he first joined the Night Raid and he's later had the bad luck of being chosen as [[VillainousCrush Esdeath's lover]].
* CantCatchUp: He quickly proves his worth as a fighter, but initially proves to be outclassed by some of the stronger opponents due to his tactics, while other Night Raiders handle them with ease.
* ChickMagnet: Every girl that Tatsumi comes across he unknowingly manages to win her affection, it's eventually [[LampshadedTrope lampshaded]] by Lubbock and Najenda [[ObliviousToLove much to his confusion]].
* CombatPragmatist: He ends up fighting one of the Rakshasa demons, who he knows is stronger and more skilled than him. How does he beat his opponent? He destroys the building that both of them are in, bringing it down on top of the Rakshasa demon's head.
* CountryMouse: He comes from an impoverished village in the countryside that he wishes to save by earning money in the capital.
* CuteBruiser: He's a young boy, but his fighting style involves getting close to the enemy and delivering many swift and powerful attacks.
* DeadPersonImpersonation: Due to the fact that all witnesses at the scene were put unconscious by Nyau's Scream and the Three Beasts were all slain by the efforts of Tatsumi and Bulat, the Empire had no information of the recently deceased [[spoiler:Bulat. Since Bulat was known as the sole owner of [[PoweredArmor Incursio]], Tatsumi's [[TakeUpMySword inheritance]] of the Teigu has the Empire mistakenly believe that Bulat is still at large.]]
* DraggedByTheCollar: After collaring him in the arena, she tried to drag Tatsumi off like this. When that failed, she just knocked him out.
* EnemyMine: Played with. After witnessing his abilities in a local fighting tournament, Esdeath drags him to the palace in the hopes of inducting him into Jaegers--and to become her lover, unknown to the fact that Tatsumi is part of Night Raid.
* IdiotHair: He has a rather large forelock of hair on top of his head. Which has a tendency to be rather [[ExpressiveHair expressive]] during times of emotion. Such as when Esdeath walks into her bedroom half naked, [[SomethingElseAlsoRises it stands straight up.]]
* FirstKiss: Tatsumi's was taken by [[spoiler:[[VillainousCrush Esdeath]]. [[ClingyJealousGirl Understandably, Mine is upset at this.]]]]
* MementoMacguffin: The parting gift given to him by the village chief is [[spoiler:the item that blocks Akame's [[OneHitKill Murasame]] from killing him.]]
* NaiveNewcomer: Incredibly naive when he first arrives in the empire, even getting scammed by Leone out of all his cash and almost killed because of his lack of common sense. Fortunately he gets better.
* NiceGuy: Kind even to his enemies, [[TooDumbToLive which almost got him killed at number of times]].
* OfficialCouple: With [[spoiler:Mine]].
* OnlySaneMan: Occasionally acts as this in the Night Raid.
* PlotArmor: One has to wonder why Tatsumi didn't suffer the same fate as Ieyasu and Sayo, had the plot not of required him to be alive.
* PreMortemOneLiner: "You can beg the King of Hell for forgiveness."
* SkilledButNaive: Being someone from the country, he hasn't had quite as much fighting experience as the rest of the Night Raid, causing to attack rather recklessly in some of his battles.
* SoleSurvivor: [[spoiler:He is the only one out of his friends to survive leaving his village after chapter 1.]]
* UnskilledButStrong: He lacks some of the more refined skills of the Night Raiders, but makes up for it for his overall fighting ability and speed.
* WeakButSkilled: He lacks the raw strength of a Teigu user at first, but his training does put him on even footing with some of them, and it makes him a ''monster'' against normal people.

!!! Teigu: [[spoiler:Incursio]]

!! Akame
-->'''Voiced by:''' {{Creator/Sora Amamiya}}

The [[TitleDrop titular]] "[[RedBaron Red Eyed Killer]]'', Akame is a young girl that was infamously known for being the Empire's number one assassin. Akame's cold-hearted and serious demeanor stems from her hellish training the Empire forced her and her sister through after being sold by their parents. After being tasked one mission to assassinate former general Najenda she is convinced by her to not only spare her but also to instead join her crusade against the Empire by becoming a member of Night Raid. Her defection from the Empire sparks an intense rivalry between fellow assassin and sibling Kurome, along with a mutual desire to be the one to end the other.

Akame is often considered to be one of the stronger members of Night Raid, slaying even the strongest of enemies with minimal effort. Her hellish assassination training allows her combat ability to be on par with those as powerful as General within the military levels of the Empire. Her Teigu, One Cut Killer: Murasame, is a katana known for being coated in an immensely deadly poison that can kill those cut by it within seconds.

** SubmissiveBadass: In times of emergency she is given the role of defacto leader in Night Raid but ultimately she is satisfied with being Najenda's NumberTwo.

* BondOneLiner[=/=]PreMortemOneLiner: "I'll send you to your grave!"
* CainAndAbel: Abel to Kurome's Cain.
* TheComicallySerious: A lot of Akame's comedic value comes from her [[NoSocialSkills lack of social skills]] and her [[BigEater voracious appetite]], always while keeping the same deadpan expression.

--->'''Akame''': Course I do! I’ve been taught all forms of common sense!
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: A minidress, and she always fights in it.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: She and her sister Kurome were sold by their parents when they were young and forced into the Prime Minister's assassin creation programs.

* DefeatMeansFriendship: She was recruited into the Night Raid when she was [[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath successfully talked into it]] by Najenda when she was assigned to kill her.

* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade-B.

!!! Teigu: Murasame

* {{BFS}}
* KatanasAreJustBetter
* LogicalWeakness: Despite Murasame's GameBreaker abilities, It's only really effective when it cuts an opponent and [[PoisonedWeapons they succumb to it's extremely deadly poison]].

* RedBaron: One Cut Killer Murasame.

* DefiantToTheEnd: Even while she's slowly dying from [[spoiler:being ''ripped in half'']] Sheele has enough strength to invoke Ecstacy's LightEmUp ability, allowing Mine to escape further enemy reinforcements.
* DissonantSerenity: This is what makes her such an effective killer. She can shut down all unnecessary thoughts and focus her concentration on eliminating her target.
* EatenAlive: Suffers this fate.
* GoOutWithASmile: As she's being [[spoiler:[[EatenAlive consumed by Seryu's Koro.]]]]
* ImprobableWeaponUser: A giant pair of scissors.
* KnifeNut: Her WeaponOfChoice before gaining [[ShearMenace Ecstacy]], which she used to great efficiency in her first murder and the men who killed her parents.
* {{Meganekko}}: Her glasses are only an addition to her being very {{Moe}}.
* NiceGirl: She's an incredibly kind and caring girl, especially in episode 5, when she consoles Tatsumi after he realizes that there's no way to resurrect his fallen friends.
* ParentalAbandonment: See DarkAndTroubledPast above.
* ScarsAreForever: She has a scar on her right cheek that she tells Tatsumi was the result of a tough battle. [[spoiler: In actuality, [[CuteClumsyGirl the scar was caused by a careless Sheele scraping her cheek across a sharp tree branch.]]]]
* ScaryShinyGlasses: She does this from time to time.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Her hair is purple.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A.

!!! Ecstacy

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Or scissors. It can cut through [[spoiler: Incursio and presumably Grand Chariot]] which are known for their near perfect defence.
* LightEmUp: Has an ability to generate a bright light to blind and momentarily stun opponents.
* ShearMenace: [[{{BFS}} They're really big scissors.]]

!! Najenda
-->'''Voiced by:''' {{Risa Mizuno}}

The head of the assassination group Night Raid, Najenda was a former general of the Empire that made the decision to defect to the Revolutionary Army after witnessing how morally bankrupt and corrupt the regime was from the actions of her colleague, General Esdeath. She successfully bands an army of her men together to defect to the Revolutionaries until she is blind sided by Esdeath's army in which she nearly lost all of her men and narrowly escaped death by her... with the exception of a shattered arm and a lost eye. During Dr. Stylish's assault on the Night Raid's hideout she reveals her two new recruits: Chelsea and the humanoid Teigu, Susanoo.

Her last known Teigu, Speed of Lightning: Susanoo, is a living humanoid Teigu that functions as the user's bodyguard and can do household chores extremely efficiently and can fight on behalf of the user.


* AbsoluteCleavage: She's almost always wearing a shirt with a low neckline.
* ArtificialLimbs: Her right arm is mechanical, destroyed in an ambush by Esdeath along with an eye, when the latter found out that she had defected.
* BoyishShortHair
* DefectorFromDecadence: She used to be a general in the Imperial army alongside Esdeath, but joined the Revolutionaries after seeing her in action.
* EyepatchOfPower: She lost her eye to Esdeath.
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: The good kind.
* HandicappedBadass: After losing an eye and her right arm she comments that she can only use about 40% of her original strength. This doesn't prevent the fact that she can still [[CurbStompBattle curb stomp]] general class opponents with ease.
* IdenticalStranger: The reason Susanoo responded to her is because she resembles his previous master, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny who much to Tatsumi and Leonne's amusement]], [[LadyLooksLikeADude was a man]].
* InSeriesNickname: [[TheLeader "Boss"]] and [[EmbarrassingNickname "The Hunk of the Rebellion"]].
* TheLeader: A mix of Type I and II. She is the one who assigns the separate members of Night Raid to the requests that are given to them and pairs them according to whose strength is suited for the task. It was her plan that tricks Esdeath into wiping out a gang of bandits for the Night Raid and leads to the [[spoiler: death of Bols and the weakening of Kurome]].
* PlotArmor: It is known that activating [[CastFromHitPoints Magatama Manifestation]] three times kills the user. [[spoiler:But when Najenda activates it for the third time in her battle with Esdeath in the Bolic arc she luckily survives only due to the fact that Susanoo reached his physical limit before her life force did.]]
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: When she first meets Tatsumi, she gives him an offer to join Night Raid and says they won't kill him if he refuses, though they can't let him leave either since he knows where their base is. She also tells him about what they do, which is to kill people who do evil things, and that they're fighting against the Empire to ease the burden on the people. Her painting the image that way helps convince him to join.
* RocketPunch: With her right arm, and can use it to pull herself forward too.
* ShipTease: She's not terribly opposed to the idea of hooking up with Rabac, but she'd rather hook-up after the conflict is over.
* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: In past she somehow succeeded in persuading Akame to abandon her mission of assassinating her and defect from the Empire, while also effectively recruiting her into the Night Raid and joining the Revolutionary Army. What makes this ''more'' incredible was that at the time Akame was the Empire's ''top assassin''.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: She's not evil, but she's dangerous.
* YouMonster: Delivers this reaction to Kurome. She despises Kurome's Teigu because she feels it desecrates the dead.

!!! Teigu: See Susanoo

!! Susanoo

A living, self-aware Teigu. Despite not being human, he has a personality and quickly bonds with the other members of Night Raid.

!!! Tropes associated with Susanoo

* ArtificialHuman: He was a Teigu meant to accompany important members of the Empire over long journeys acting as a cook, a medic, and a bodyguard all in one.
* BerserkButton: Nothing ever pissed him off more than learning that one of their targets had a habit of tainting people's food with am addictive drug.
* BigDamnHeroes: In his first appearance.
* ChickMagnet: Rabac mentions that he'd like to take him into town one day to help him pick up chicks. Susanoo doesn't really understand, but says that he'd be happy to help his allies in any way.
* HealingFactor: Being a humanoid Teigu allows him regenerate destroyed limbs within seconds.
* HornedHumanoid: He has large bull horns on his head.
* TheLastDance: Decides hold off [[spoiler:[[TheJuggernaut General Esdeath]]]] long enough for the remaining Night Raid members to flee after the assassination of Bolic.
* MeaningfulName: Named after the storm god of Japanese legend. [[PersonOfMassDestruction He's also the Teigu capable of the most destruction wielded by Night Raid.]]
* NeatFreak: When he sees something out of place like someone’s hair or their clothes he immediately adjusts it perfectly.
* RealMenCook: Takes the role of being the Night Raid’s chef alongside Akame.
* SuperMode: Magatama Manifestation, Susanoo's trump card that gives him a major power boost, allowing him to use powerful techniques such as [[PublicDomainArtifact Ame no Murakumo, Mirror of Yata, and the Jewel of Yasakani]] but [[CastFromHitPoints kills his master after being used three times]].
** AttackReflector: Mirror of Yata, a huge shield capable of reflecting any projectile attack.
** {{BFS}}: Ame no Murakamo, a gigantic sword capable of cutting through [[{{Kaiju}} Destaghoul]] ''in one swing.''
** FlashStep: Jewel of Yasakani.
** HolyHalo: It even [[AntiGravityClothing levitates behind his back]] for RuleOfCool.
* SupremeChef: He's known for making the giant creatures [[BigEater Akame]] captures into luxurious meals for the rest of the group.
* WorthyOpponent: To [[spoiler:[[BloodKnight Esdeath]]]] in his [[YouShallNotPass resolve to allow the remaining Night Raid to flee.]] [[spoiler:She even vowed to remember him not as a Teigu, but [[VillainRespect as a warrior]].]]

!! Chelsea

A young girl who joins Night Raid later on in the story. Her town was eradicated by the Empire upon suspicion of harboring rebels. Her Teigu allows her to take on a multitude of different disguises.

!!! Tropes associated to Chelsea

* ActionGirl: One of the least action-oriented of a cast full of battle-ready women.
* TheGadfly: In her free time she [[ItAmusedMe enjoys getting reactions out of her teammates]] and especially likes pushing Mine’s buttons, such as [[ACupAngst mocking her chest size]] and tricking her with her transformations.
* HairDecorations: Her butterfly headphone accessory.
* OralFixation: Always seen with a lollipop in her mouth.
* {{Revenge}}: She kills [[spoiler: Bols]], who was the agent of the Empire that wiped out her town.
* SoleSurvivor: Of the other Night Raid assassination team that was annihilated by the Three Beasts.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Unlike [[GoOutWithASmile Sheele]] and [[ObiWanMoment Bulat]] her [[RasputinianDeath death]] was not slow or peaceful whatsoever. [[spoiler:[[{{Fingore}} All of her fingers on her left hand gets shot off]], [[AnArmAndALeg her right arm gets lopped off]], [[InTheBack she gets shot in the torso]], and then [[OffWithHerHead she's finally beheaded]]. That's not even counting what happens to her body ''[[UpToEleven after she dies]]''.]]
* WeakButSkilled: She's remarkably capable of deception and [[PressurePoint striking at vital points]]. [[spoiler: Too bad Kurome had been doped.]]

!!! Teigu: Gaea Foundation

* MasterOfDisguise: She can take on the form of anything from a cat to a little girl.
* TransformationTrinket: In the form of a makeup box.


[[folder:The Jaegars]]

!Tropes associated with Jaegers:

* ALighterShadeOfBlack: They can be very ruthless, but they are not barbarians. They don't indiscriminately kill the Empire's citizens unless they suspect them to working with LaResistance. Every member at least have their own share PetTheDog moments. This is very stark contrast to Wild Hunt where they are willing to kill the Empire's citizens for ''any'' reason ([[ForTheEvulz even for fun]]).
* AntiVillain: Some of the members such as Wave and Boris are this, especially considering that the Jaegars themselves don't actively abuse the populace of the Empire and are actually intent on protecting them. Unlike [[EvilerThanThou Wild Hunt]].
* BadassInANiceSuit: The first time the group assembled, their first order of business is to meet the emperor in stylish black suits.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Even the worst members of their group have a strict moral code.
* EvilCounterpart: To Night Raid.
* FiveBadBand:
** BigBad: Esdeath.
** TheDragon: Kurome.
** EvilGenius: Dr.Stylish.
** TheBrute: Boris.
** TheDarkChick: Seireux/Run.
** TokenGoodTeammate: Wave.
* PunchClockVillain: Other than [[CuteAndPsycho Seireux]] and [[MadScientist Dr. Stylish]] most of the members see being in the group as just a job and generally aren't villainous otherwise outside of combat.

!! Esdeath
--> '''Voiced by:''' {{Creator/Satomi Akesaka}}

Leader of the Jaegars. A high-ranking general and the most powerful fighter in the Empire. A true sadist, she is an expert in torture and ''loves'' to inflict it upon others (indeed, the prospect of her "personal" attention is seen as a [[FateWorseThanDeath terrible fate]]). Ironically, when offered a title of nobility for hunting down and destroying Night Raid, she instead wanted them to find someone she believed could be her OneTrueLove (to the utter shock of everyone in the room).

Her Teigu, Demon God Manifestation: Demon's Extract, is the blood of an ultra class danger beast that she drank, allowing her manipulate ice with immense skill.


* AMotherToHerMen: Surprisingly, considering her infamous sadism and cruelty. She will torture as punishment for major screw ups, but it's light compared to what she does to enemies.
* AllWomenAreDomsAllMenAreSubs: Goes right along with her pure sadistic nature, but when she thinks Tatsumi is a masochist[[note]] After he asks her to PinchMe [[/note]], she is quite over joyed and thinks it's further proof they are made for each other.
* AnIcePerson: Her Teigu, Demon's Extract, can create ice from nothing, lots of ice. In fact, it's said to be the most powerful teigu in existence.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: She has one of the highest authorities in the Empire. She's also a complete {{Badass}} among badasses.
* '''{{Badass}}'''
** BreakTheBadass: She’s capable of doing this to every opponent but notable mention goes to ''[[SpiritedCompetitor Leone]]'' who flees from her just from the pressure of her ''KillingIntent''.
** FourStarBadass: When you kick as much ass as her there's no other position except as a general.
** HeartbrokenBadass: After Tatsumi manages to escape from her... [[VillainousCrush love]].
* BloodKnight: The reason she brutally kills all but a few people when putting down a rebellion. She wants that hatred to be preserved and spread once more, so another revolt happens in time, so that she may fight again. Hopefully against stronger/more worthy opponents.
* CommissarCap
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: A minidress with the bottom modified like a skirt, so she has the short part down. Also the [[WorldsStrongestMan World's Strongest Woman]], so ''you better bet'' she got the dangerous part down.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: PlayedForLaughs. She couldn't understand why knocking out Tatsumi, dragging him to the palace and slapping a collar on him isn't a good idea. [[ComicallyMissingThePoint She just wants him to stand out as her lover.]]
* FreudianExcuse: She's a SocialDarwinist because she was raised in a very rural, unforgiving area of the continent where Danger Beasts ran rampant. Her father emphasized the importance of survival of the fittest for her own sake, but it wound up backfiring terribly after his death at the hands of raiders from a rival tribe.
** Subverted because it still doesn't explain why she is so terrifyingly sadistic. Even her father was apprehensive at how much excitement she found in cutting bodies up. Although, being given a name (see MeaningfulName below) that forced her to claim to be a sadist every time she introduce her name might have something to do with it.
** Also averted as the reason she utterly demolished the Northern tribes. Not because of revenge, but because it was simply her job.
* GratuitousGerman: Most of her named attacks fall under this. [[spoiler: Averted with her [[HinduMythology trump card]].]]
* HeroKiller: She's responsible for the destruction of many prominent forces opposing the Empire but she definitely becomes one when she kills [[spoiler:Susanoo]].
* HiddenDepths: She may be a SocialDarwinist with a sadistic streak and a penchant for torture, but she's looking not only for someone who is strong - she's looking for her OneTrueLove, male or female. She's even overjoyed at the idea of said OneTrueLove being a masochist (which is [[PetTheDog oddly considerate]] of her). Perhaps because of that, she '''hates''' over-hyped strength (meaning, great fighters who turn out to be mere chumps when they face her, as she finds it incredibly boring, even disappointing, though she still indulges in slight femdom undertones every now and then before finishing them off). In addition, while she is merciless to her enemies, she's the type that would not accept mercy done to herself either; do not hold back, because she wouldn't hold back either.
* IControlMyMinionsThrough: Kindness ironically. Despite her philosophy she's very kind (in her own way) and caring to her subordinates... Until they screw up badly, at which point the sadist in her comes out and they get tortured (but not killed, as is usually the case with her).
* [[ImTakingHerHomeWithMe I'm Taking Tatsumi Home With Me]]: Tatsumi is the first person she encounters who fits her criteria for her perfect match, so she kidnaps him with the entire stadium full of spectators watching. No joke! She slaps a collar around his neck, starts to drag him off, and ''knocks him out when he asks her to wait a moment.''
-->'''Tatsumi:''' WAIT! Hold on a--
-->'''Esdeath:''' ''(Hits Tatsumi on the back of the neck.)'' No, I will not wait. Lets go to the palace where we can talk alone.
-->''Esdeath slings an unconsious Tatsumi over her shoulder and walks off.)''
-->''(A panel showing the spectators' reactions that includes a dumbfounded man, a stunned woman, and an utterly distraught Esdeath fanboy.)''
-->'''Rabac:''' [[FlatWhat WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED??!!]]
* {{Jerkass}}: She's actually ''very'' aware of how the Prime Minister is manipulating the emperor and allowing the Capital to become corrupt and rampant with crime, but doesn't give a flying fracas about it. So long as she can fight, she'll do nothing to stop him.
** Tatsumi even attempts to convince her to use her influence to better the Empire from within by appealing to the good side of her he's seen: He tries to explain how the drastic class gap could keep people who loved each other apart, but her obsession with SocialDarwinist philosophy causes her immediate response to be that she can't comprehend something like that. To her, the strong fight for what they want and if they're strong enough to survive, they do. If they don't, they're too weak and she doesn't care.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: ''That said'', she respects strength above everything else, so if she thinks you're strong, she'll treat you much more compassionately than anyone she considers an enemy, almost like a mother or a very quirky older sister. In many ways, she's ''earned'' the loyalty of her fellow Jaegers. Furthermore, she may be complicit in allowing the corruption of the Prime Minister, but she has enough of a code of honor not to actively torment the people of the Empire, and prefers to fight only active enemies of the Prime Minister.
* TheJuggernaut: In the course of the entire story Esdeath has ''never'' been harmed when she enters a fight. If her opponents aren't done in by her OneHitKill blows, they are immediately incapacitated or [[ColdBloodedTorture worse]]. This comes to a head in the Bolic arc, when she takes down [[spoiler: [[PoweredArmor Incursio Tatsumi]]]], [[LightningBruiser Leone]], [[SuperMode Magatama Susanoo]], and [[HandicappedBadass Najenda]] ]] ''singlehandedly''.
--->'''Najenda''': If you make a mistake, we'll crash head on into Esdeath. We don't have enough soldiers to face her yet.
--->'''Tatsumi''': How many do you think we'll need to defeat her?
--->'''Najenda''': [[NoKillLikeOverkill Fifty thousand elite soldiers]], and [[UpToEleven at least ten Teigu users like Akame.]]
* LoveRedeems: {{Subverted}}. Tatsumi realized that she can't be changed from her current standpoint, because she isn't just a product of society or her time, she really is insane and nothing will change that.
* LightningBruiser: Most of her blows are OneHitKill and she's fast enough to dodge attacks from [[spoiler: [[PoweredArmor Incursio Tatsumi]]]] and [[SuperMode Magatama Susanoo]] ''simultaneously''. That's not even taking into account of her [[AnIcePerson Teigu]].
* MamaBear: Despite everything, she's rather protective of her subordinates. When Liver, Nyau, and Daidara were all killed, Esdeath - naturally - cursed them for being too weak and claimed it was "only natural" for them to die. Yet, she still gave each a proper burial, planted flowers on each of their tombstones, bowed her head, and declared her desire to avenge their deaths anyway.
* MeaningfulName: Esdeath --> S Desu, which means "I am a sadist" in Japanese
* MiniDressOfPower: Part of her IconicOutfit.
* MsFanservice: Even more so than Leone.
* RapunzelHair: Par course for the series.
* RedBaron: [[WorldsStrongestMan The Empire's Strongest]].
* RoyalRapier: Her weapon of choice.
* SingleTargetSexuality: A Tatsumiexual.
* SocialDarwinist: An extreme example, she believes it only natural for the weak to die. Indeed, she even states she cannot understand "the feelings of the weak." It's to the point that when Tatsumi tries to reason with her and get her to use her influence to help eliminate some of the corruption within, appealing to the fact that she loves him with a scenario of a girl who's kept from her love by the large social gaps and corruption, she coldly states that she doesn't understand such things.
* SuperpowerLottery: Being gifted with the [[AnIcePerson Demon's Extract]] automatically wins her this, allowing her to create ''gigantic'' blocks of ice out of thin air with little effort and instantaneously freeze anything within seconds. If that's not enough she has OneHitKill blows, she's fast enough FlashStep around her opponents, and has an impeccable [[SpiderSense sixth sense]]. If all that fails she can [[spoiler: ''[[TimeStandsStill briefly freeze space and time once a day]]'']].
* UsedToBeASweetKid: She used to be a very nice girl who loved nothing more than hunting and being with her fellow tribe members, her father especially. However, her father emphasized SocialDarwinist philosophy in her upbringing for her own sake; the Danger Beasts running rampant around their homeland meant that she'd die if she couldn't become a force to be reckoned with by the time she became old enough to hunt. However, her village was later wiped out during a raid by an enemy tribe, and her father's last words included even more about survival of the fittest, and without his guidance, she became the sadist working for the empire that we've come to know.
** Slightly subverted, in that even her father admitted she had a few moral screws loose. Her sadistic tendencies are implied to have been all nature, not nurture.
* VillainousCrush: With Tatsumi, who managed to fit all her criteria for a lover plus the extra one (A pure and innocent smiling face would be nice). It seems to be genuine LoveAtFirstSight for her, as she only becomes softer and kinder when she's around him and is pretty determined in her efforts to get him to fall in love with her (even asking Bols for advice) despite the fact he stated he was going to join the revolutionary army.
* VillainRespect: After seeing [[spoiler:Susanoo]] perform a HeroicSacrifice, Esdeath is so impressed that she vows to remember him, not as a Teigu, but as a warrior. It's one of her more poignant PetTheDog moments.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Her hair is light blue.

!! Wave
!!! Tropes associated with Wave

* AntiVillain: A [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type IV]]. He doesn't really like the state the empire's in and is very well aware of the immense corruption of the nobles and of the [[PsychoForHire more psychotic members]] of his group but he embraces his role as an enforcer due to a debt from an unseen savior back in the navy.
* ButtMonkey: He tends to get the short end of the stick at times, from his punishment by Esdeath for allowing Tatsumi to escape to constantly being ejected off the battlefield by the Night Raid.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: [[ButtMonkey When given the opportunity,]] Wave has demonstrated that he can [[CurbStompBattle curb stomp]] an [[spoiler: Incursio clad Tatsumi]] and overpower Akame, Mine, and Rabac ''simultaneously''.
** In addition to this, he can [[spoiler:fight [[BareFistedMonk Syura]] in hand to hand combat, barring Teigu, and successfully defeat him. Bearing in mind that Syura is a much more established martial artist.]]
* EvilCounterpart: A subversion for Tatsumi. The Jaegers are antagonists but he is a Type IV AntiVillain, their characters and Teigus are pretty much the same.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: His joining of the Jaegers and subsequent adventures with them, run parallel to Tatsumi's own.
* ItsAllMyFault: He blames himself for [[spoiler:being knocked out from the Night Raid ambush that resulted in the death of Bols.]]
* NaiveNewcomer: In comparison to the other members of Jaegars.
* NiceGuy: Actively believes his job will change the corrupt crime rampant within the empire and is always seen getting along with fellow members of the Jaegars, [[ShipTease especially]] [[DefrostingIceQueen Kurome]].
* ObliviousToLove: Not surprisingly, considering how he's a [[CaptainErsatz clear mirror]] of Tatsumi; he doesn't seem to realize how increasingly, Kurome's feelings for him aren't just those of friendship and camaraderie.
* OnlySaneMan: In the [[PsychoForHire Jaegars]].
* RageBreakingPoint: While Wave could put up with the Jaegars at first; when he sees Wild Hunt's actions, he completely loses it.
* SkilledButNaive: Esdeath makes it a point to inform Wave that his strength is perfect; but how he lacks mental fortitude, and thus as a result can be easily deceived or misled.
* ThisIsUnforgivable: When he witnesses Wild Hunt's actions; most notably their [[spoiler:rape and murder of Bols' wife and daughter '''on his own grave''', and Syura's attempted assault on Kurome, which brings him to a RageBreakingPoint.]]
* TokenGoodTeammate: The only person in the Jaegars that has absolutely no irredeemable qualities whatsoever. He’s never even seen killing a person, civilian or criminal, at all.
* WhatTheHellHero: He calls out Kurome [[spoiler:for continuously making use of Run's deceased body as one of her corpse puppets. He also calls her on casually assuming that the EmptyShell of their deceased friend is enough to substitute the fact that he's no longer alive.]]

!!! Teigu: Grand Chariot

* BadassCape: It even ''[[AntiGravityClothing floats]]''.
* CoolMask
* DarkIsNotEvil: It's all black armor, but don't forget that Wave is actually one of the most merciful members of the entire cast.
* {{Flight}}: Grand Chariot trades the InvisibilityCloak of Incursio for the usage of being able to fly for short amounts of time.
* PowerArmor: Grand Chariot was also made from the flesh of Tyrant after Incursio and Wave confidently states that because of this fact Grand Chariot is superior to its predecessor.
* NighInvulnerability: A given fact considering it was made from the same Danger Beast as Incursio, but it also proves rather effective at blocking attacks from Akame's [[OneHitKill Murasame]].
* SuperStrength: Grand Chariot is capable of cracking the defenses of Incursio with ''one kick'', a Teigu known for [[NighInvulnerability nigh invulnerable armor]].

!! Dr. Stylish

!!! Tropes associated with Dr. Stylish

* CampGay: He blatantly hits on his fellow male Jaegars, except [[HappilyMarried Bols]], and even offers his transformed human experiments a “night alone” with him if they manage to kill any Night Raid.
* CombatMedic: He can deal a healthy dose of asskicking with his minion army while also repairing (and upgrading) any of his allies with his Teigu, Perfector, saving them from anything less than death.
* FlunkyBoss: When he attacks the Night Raid hideout he send his entire minion army to attack them while he stand back and watches the outcome of the battle.
* MadScientist: Loves to experiment on humans and seeks to create weapons more powerful than Teigus.
* {{Megane}}: To really play up his "doctor" look.
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: Specializing in human experimentation.
* OneWingedAngel: After his army is destroyed and realizes Night Raid is coming for his head, Stylish [[spoiler:[[PlayingWithSyringes injects himself with a syringe]] transforming himself into a giant monster.]]
** AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: A giant [[spoiler:baby face monster with him attached to the forehead.]]
** CombatTentacles: Syringe tipped tentacles.
* SquishyWizard: He has an army of human experiments at his disposal that each have a variety of different upgrades and enhancements but stays back because he himself lacks any kind of offensive ability. [[spoiler: At least before his OneWingedAngel.]]

!! Bols

!!! Tropes associated with Bols

* AlasPoorVillain: After a long battle against the Night Raid he is ultimately dispatched by [[spoiler:Chelsea, who takes the form of a little girl who was once a citizen of a village Bols burned to ashes. He dies crawling to the memory of his wife and child.]]
-->'''Bols''': [[FamousLastWords I have to return home... Because they are both waiting... I have to return...]]
* AntiVillain / PunchClockVillain: Despite having a job that entails burning down entire cities, innocents included, he still views it as a job. He is also very aware of how horrific what he does is and knows that, one day, karma will catch up to him. He still does his job for the sake of his wife and child.
* TheFaceless: We never see his face.
* FireBreathingWeapon: His Teigu, Purgatory's Invitation: Rubicante, is a flamethrower can expel flames so hot [[{{Hellfire}} even water can’t extinguish it]].
* HappilyMarried: He has a wife and a daughter who love him as much as he loves them (i.e. very deeply). To the shock of everyone else in the group.
* KillItWithFire: As part of his job as a member of the Incineration Squad.
* NiceGuy: If it wasn't for his [[PunchClockVillain occupation]] Bols would be the nicest character in the series.
* ShrinkingViolet: The first time Wave meets him, Bols is so nervous that he just stares silently at him until several other Jaegars show up.
* ShoutOut: Scarred face with a funky mask? He's kinda like {{Deadpool}}.
* SuperStrength: He can beat Danger Beasts into submission with his bare hands.
* SupremeChef: He is noted by Wave to be an excellent chef, often making the meals eaten by the Jaegars.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: He takes down some Danger Beasts with lariats and suplexes.

!! Kurome

!!! Tropes associated with Kurome

* {{Badass}}: She’s easily the second strongest Jaegar after [[WorldsStrongestMan General Esdeath]], capable on taking on the ''entire'' Night Raid with her [[{{Necromancer}} Yatsuhusa]] and almost winning. She’s also the only person that can clash swords with [[OneHitKill Akame]] and come out unscathed with no allies or supernatural assistance.
** BadassAdorable: Her allies and enemies alike take note of how cute she is until she cuts a group of soldiers to pieces in a single motion.
** BadassBoast
-->It seems if you want to kill me… You’ll have to do something like squash my heart or separate my head from my body.
* BigEater: She eats cookies like [[UpToEleven Akame eats meat]].
* CainAndAbel: Cain to Akame's Abel, mainly because she betrayed her and the Empire.
* CaptainErsatz: InUniverse of Akame.
* CharacterDevelopment: She's initially introduced as the ruthless [[CuteAndPsycho psychopathic]] assassin who's main goal in life was being her older sister's [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou sole murderer]]. Eventually through her interactions within the [[TrueCompanions Jaegars]] and Wave's kindness she begins to show a [[WhenSheSmiles kinder and sweeter side]] behind closed doors. This change is lampshaded by Run, when she encounters Akame for the third time, announcing her intent to take her down for the sake of ''the people'', and not her deep-seated grudge towards her. [[spoiler:This is unfortunately [[AvertedTrope averted]], as when Run is slowly dying from his wounds obtained in their battle against Wild Hunt, she unexpectedly decides that instead of letting Run [[PeacefulInDeath die peacefully]], she'll instead MercyKill him and force him to continue living as one of her corpse puppets.]]
* CuteAndPsycho: Emphasis on the psycho part, considering that her idea of loving someone is turning them into one of her corpse puppets.
* CuteIsEvil: As cute as she appears, one must not forget that she's one of the most sociopathic and psychopathic members of the Jaegers.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: She and Akame were abandoned by their parents after being sold to the Empire to be child soldiers. However, [[TrainingFromHell unlike Akame]], Kurome was instead subjugated to rigorous experimentation and [[SuperSerum numerous drug enhancements]] in the Empire's quest to create a new SuperSoldier.
* DarkActionGirl: Being the darker equivalent to Akame while being just as {{Badass}}.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Used to be this until she confesses her fears to Wave and later when [[spoiler:tending to Wave's wounds, she makes little effort to hide her care and affection for Wave.]]
* DissonantSerenity: She often goes into this state, particularly following her attempt to act like everything is fine with Wave after she [[spoiler:reanimates Run.]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Her first onscreen appearance shows her sitting atop a mountain of corpses humming a melody to herself.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: She can't understand why Wave is upset [[spoiler:over her usage of Run as her newest corpse puppet. She also can't understand why he isn't happy about her ability to keep his body in existence to prevent the total loss of their friend and his disgust when she attempts to summon him to spend time together with them like back when he was alive.]]
* EvilCounterpart: Of Akame.
* GameBreakingInjury: A rare villainous variant. After surviving an assassination attempt by [[spoiler:Chelsea]], Kurome has been visibly more tired and weaker in combat. A notable example is when she fought the entire Night Raid she was able to summon and control eight corpse puppets and still have the strength to fend off [[MasterSwordsman Akame]] simultaneously while largely keeping the pace of the battle. After the failed assassination she can barely summon two puppets, [[spoiler:and is suffering from a potentially IncurableCoughOfDeath; thus ''losing'' a subsequent battle of speed against Akame, resulting in the death of Bolic.]]

* HiddenDepths: She confides to Wave that she’s afraid of being seen as weak because back in the Assassination Squad [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness those who are deemed weak are disposed of]].

* MercyKill: She delivers this to an unsuspecting [[spoiler:dying Run, in an effort to keep him "alive", ultimately enslaving and reanimating him with her Yatsuhusa into one of her newest corpse puppets.]]
* MundaneUtility: A rather darkly comedic version of this. [[spoiler:Basically, after she reanimates a dying Run into one of her corpse puppets with Yatsuhusa, she then suggests using it to summon him to spend time together with them as they did back when he was alive. For example, like when it's time to eat cake.]]
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: She is very adamant about being the only person who may deliver her sister's death by her own hands. Needless to say, the feeling is mutual.

[[folder:The Empire]]

!!!The tropes associated with Prime Minister Honest

* BigBad: The root of all the corruption in the Capital, and aims to keep it that way.
* BigEater: He’s even seen eating a cake ''whole''.
* DevilInPlainSight: Not to [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter The Emperor]].
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: [[VisualPun Walks out]] [[ManBehindTheMan from behind]] The Emperor after The Emperor sentenced an innocent man to death casually and then supports said decision while [[VillainousGlutton engorging himself with food]]. When the man tries to convince The Emperor that he’s being manipulated, he puts on a kind face and successfully convinces the latter otherwise. What marks him being a complete and utter bastard is telling the condemned man that he’ll make sure to take care of his wife, ''every single part of her''.
* EvilChancellor: Evil Prime Minister to be exact. He plays the trope straight by having the most influential power in the entire empire, [[TheManBehindTheMan influencing the decisions]] of TheEmperor, and being his most “trusted” advisor.
* FatBastard: His argument is that the [[PostStressOvereating stress he gets from hearing about the actions of the resistance cause him to over indulge himself]].
* IronicName: He is anything but honest.
* VillainousGlutton: Most of his appearances have him always consuming large amounts of foods.

!! The Emperor

The de jure ruler of the Empire, although everything he does is through the influence of Prime Minister Honest.


!!! Tropes associated with The Emperor

* AdorablyPrecociousChild: Outside of his duties as the emperor, he's really just a cheerful little boy.
* ChildrenAreInnocent: So innocent that he's very easy to manipulate.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: He is shown stoically [[DisproportionateRetribution sentencing an innocent man to death]] for objecting the political affairs of the Empire. He then asks the [[BigBad Prime Minister]] if he did well. [[WhatTheHellHero When called out on being victim of the Prime Minister’s machinations]] by the innocent man he immediately dismisses the man’s words as foolish ramblings.
* GoodIsDumb: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] as he is just a child.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Believes the [[ObviouslyEvil Prime Minister]] is his most trusted advisor.
* NiceGuy: He's very kind to those he believes are good people and are loyal to the empire. He even tries to help Esdeath find her perfect match after Tatsumi gets away, but she respectfully insists that she's fine with finding Tatsumi again.
* PuppetKing: He is merely a tool used to distract the more feeble minded citizens of his court and by extension, the entire empire from the activities of the Prime Minister.

!! Great General Budo
!!! Tropes associated with Great General Budo

* FourStarBadass: Single-handedly stopped Wave's NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on Syura, and he is a fellow Teigu user as well.
* MyCountryRightOrWrong: Appears to have recognised the Prime Minister as a [[UnderStatement very bad influence]] to the young Emperor but is willing to look the other way until the rebellion is crushed. He knows that while the Prime Minister is using the Emperor as a puppet, FatBastard needs that puppet alive and well.

[[folder:Wild Hunt]]

! Tropes associated with Wild Hunt:

* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Every member of Wild Hunt is known to be equipped with a Teigu Syura found in his travels.
* EvilerThanThou: While the Jaegars weren't formed with the most morally compassionate people in the Empire, Wild Hunt has been introduced as a group hellbent on causing carnage throughout the Empire, excusing their actions as being a Secret Police group under the Prime Minister.
* ForTheEvulz: What makes them different from the Jaegars is that the Wild Hunt is willing to kill the Empire's citizens out of their own enjoyment since they can easily get away with it.
* KickTheDog: Every chapter since their introduction Wild Hunt has been '''constantly''' kicking the dog.
* MeaningfulName: Named after TheWildHunt. They have a habit of raping and killing everyone in their way, too.
* PsychoForHire: The people recruited to make up Wild Hunt by Syura, are all definitely this. Enshin, Cosmina and Champ joined to engage in as much depravity within the Empire as possible, while Izou outright admits that he only came along just so to be allowed to kill as many people as he could.
* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: A very notable difference between them and the Jaegars to make them all the more monstrous. Syura, Cosmina, Enshin and Champ are all rapists. Especially [[MonsterClown Champ]], [[PaedoHunt who expresses sadistic glee at having his way with children]].
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: The Wild Hunt tend to throw a lot of weight around in the Empire simply because their leader is the son of the Prime Minister. As such any of their actions, such as rape and murder, can hand waved as [[BlatantLies thorough investigation]].

The son of the Prime Minister and leader of Wild Hunt. Left on a journey to explore the world and retrieve Teigu in other nations, he assembled the members of Wild Hunt.
!!! Tropes associated with Syura

* AmbiguouslyBrown: Strangely, he's very tanned compared to his fair-skinned father. Presumably, this is because he's spent the majority of his time away in the Caribbean islands south of the Empire.
* AxCrazy: When he's not conversing with his father you can expect to see him raping some innocent girl and murdering her ForTheEvulz or pounding a fallen foe to death with his bare hands, cackling the whole time.
* BareFistedMonk: In his skirmish with [[spoiler:Wave,]] he demonstrates a vast knowledge of different martial arts he acquired during his travels outside the Empire.
* BerserkButton: Going against him as the son of the Prime Minister or even worst, leading him into being a disappointment in his father's eyes is a one way ticket to him intending to rip you limb from limb.
* DanceBattler: He takes down a group of seasoned martial artists just by using capoeira style kicks.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: He has a giant X shaped scar across his face from the bridge of his nose.
* HumiliationConga: Later on, he loses to Wave in a fist fight, [[BerserkButton gets criticized by his dad for it]], then he loses [[spoiler: several members of his unit]], [[BerserkButton gets criticized by his dad for it]], [[spoiler: despite catching two members of Night Raid,]] Esdese humiliates him by [[spoiler: proving that he was responsible for an incident that endangered the empire and getting what remained of Wild Hunt disbanded]], [[BerserkButton gets criticized by his dad for it]], and finally [[spoiler: gets killed by Rabac when he pretends to have been broken by his torture.]] [[KickTheSonOfABitch The fans enjoyed those few chapters immensely.]]
* KickTheSonOfABitch: People ''loved'' his HumiliationConga.
* OverlordJr: He's the spoiled son of the [[BigBad Prime Minister]] whose entire goal in life is to become as powerful and ruthless as his father and become competent in his eyes. As such...

* SmugSnake: Due to his perceived strength and prowess, as well as family connections.
* TortureTechnician. Claims to be this. He later shows how and why [[spoiler:towards poor Lubbock.]]
* VillainousFriendship: Subverted. Although he seems to be great friends with the other members of Wild Hunt, most often when they gleefully indulge in their [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil "activities"]]; [[spoiler:when Champ and Enshin are killed, he states that he doesn't give a toss since they died so easily.]] This claim is then consequently [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by fellow member Dorothea.
* WellDoneSonGuy: He's determined to prove himself to his father, and is noticeably afraid when his father is angry at him [[spoiler:for being beaten by Wave.]] Basically, humiliating or demeaning him in front of his father is the [[BerserkButton worst way to piss him off.]]

!!! Teigu: Shambhala
* TeleportersAndTransporters

!! Izou

Swordsman who loves to fight.
!!! Tropes associated with Izou

* BetterThanSex: While the Wild Hunt is [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil "investigating"]] a theatre group suspected of writing plays that harm the image of the Prime Minister, Izou instead prefers to stand outside [[BloodKnight carving any would be escapees to pieces]].

* NumberTwo: To Syura.

Cosmina was a singer who was convicted of witchcraft in the Western kingdom. She survived her village's attempt to kill her and was recruited into Wild Hunt for her voice-based abilities.

* AllWomenAreLustful: She happily indulges in her sexual activities, which include an entire theatre troupe of men, and shamelessly flirts with Enshin and Run.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: She was persecuted and branded as a witch because her voice has the ability to manipulate people. This such persecution later led to her entire family being killed and their house set on fire. Unfortunately, she survived the fire, but went [[SanitySlippage completely insane]] by the tragedy.
* DumbMuscle: A rare female example. In combat, [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer her only action]] is to face enemies and fire her destructive sound waves at them until they die. She thinks ''nothing'' about defensive measures and lets her guard down all to quickly on the battlefield, even when it's obvious that there's still potential enemies that pose a definite threat to her.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: Her eyes have a [[BishieSparkle sparkle]] sign in her pupils.
* FreudianExcuse: She apparently used to be a sane, decent human being.

She was the only one to survive. The event turned her into the monster she is.
* GenkiGirl: She's always seen upbeat and energetic.
* GlassCannon: She has devastatingly destructive attack power she can emit over long distances, but other than that aspect, she lacks defensive ability of any kind.
* MadeOfIron: She's been known to mysteriously survive the giant fire that burned her entire house and family to ashes and even survived [[spoiler:a shot from Mine's Pumpkin but with fatal injuries.]]
* MakeMeWannaShout: Her Teigu, Great Tremor: Heavy Pressure, allows her to transmit long range sound waves, strong enough to shatter the skeletons and implode the brain on any unfortunate target caught in its radius.
* TheNicknamer: Refers to her fellow Wild Hunt members Syura and Champ, as "Shurry" and "Champie", respectively.
* PlayboyBunny: The outfit that she wears from when she is first introduced.
* [[PsychopathicManchild Psychopathic Womanchild]]: She has a constant smile on her face even when she's killing, flirts shamelessly with any handsome man in her company, and treats all of her battles as concerts where she's "entertaining" the opponent with her [[MakeMeWannaShout "singing"]].

* VampiricDraining: Her Teigu allows her to bite into an unsuspecting victim and reduce them to skeletons in mere seconds.

!! Enshin

Pirate from the Southern Islands.

* GenreSavvy: Unlike [[DumbMuscle Champ]] and [[ReallyGetsAround Cosmina]], he is not fooled by Run's [[{{NiceGuy}} facade]] about joining Wild Hunt and follows him when he leads Champ to another location, in the event that Run might try to ambush Champ.
* {{Lunacy}}: His Teigu, Moonlight Sword: Shamshir, is a sword that can create [[SwordBeam aerial blades]] which can grow stronger depending on the lunar cycle.
* ProperlyParanoid: Of Run's reasons for ingratiating himself to Wild Hunt, which turn out to indeed be insincere.
* ThisCannotBe: When Akame dodges the attacks from his Shamshir, and [[spoiler:then swiftly kills him with her Murasame.]]

!! Champ

Serial Killer Entertainer.

!!! Tropes associated with Champ

* AssholeVictim: His death at the hands of [[spoiler:Run]] was a long, ''long'' time coming.
* BishieSparkle: Whenever he sees a child or gets passionate in speaking about his love for children.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: When asked by Run if he remembers his massacre of students back in the town of Joyou, he struggles to remember the memory until he thinks about the amount of children he raped and killed.
* ChildrenAreInnocent: In a very twisted aspect, this is the reason why he kills children. [[NotAllowedToGrowUp To prevent them from becoming "filthy adults"]].
-->'''Champ:''' [[InsaneTrollLogic "Adults are worthless. They're all scum! Angels should just stay angels forever."]]
* DumbMuscle: He's strong enough to be recruited as a Teigu wielding member of Wild Hunt yet is easily fooled by Run into following him into some abandoned ruins in an attempt to ambush him and kill him with the promise of having prepared a group of small children just for his pleasure.

* [[spoiler:KarmicDeath: His death by Run is this. See HoistByHisOwnPetard and {{Irony}} above for more.]]
* MadeOfIron: Has the courtesy of being hit by a [[FlechetteStorm barrage]] of Mastema's FeatherFlechettes, which can pierce through bone, [[ColdBloodedTorture tortured by Run]], stabbed repeatedly in the torso and still has the strength to find Run and Kurome and attack the pair with his Teigu.
* MightyGlacier: He's very slow but can tank an incredible amount of punishment and his Teigu can deal immense damage in both long and short range combat.
* MonsterClown: Especially monstrous, when one considers his [[PaedoHunt sexual preference]].
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Beats an innocent woman to death simply because she tried to prevent him from having his way with a young child in a theater group.
* NotSoStoic: He drops his [[TheStoic stoic demeanor]] when he happens to spot a cute child. Unfortunately, this is also [[{{Squick}} coupled with arousal]]...

Liver was formerly a righteous general in the empire and Bulat's mentor and friend. Refusing to take bribes, he was imprisoned until Esdeath, recognising his strength.

* AntiVillain: Compared to his two teammates. He is an enemy only because of his UndyingLoyalty to Esdeath for saving his life.

* PeacefulInDeath: Dies contetly in a dignified, having succeeded in slaying [[spoiler: Bulat]] and served Esdeath to the best of his ability.
* ShapingYourAttacks: Such as shaping them into spears, dragons, or a '''giant snake'''.
* TakingYouWithMe: After a long battle he is eventually beaten by [[spoiler:Bulat]], but not before fatally poisoning him with Black Marlin.
* TeamDad: To the 3 Beasts, just like Bulat is to the Night Raid.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Esdeath, although it appears to reach the point of romantic affection.
* WeCanRuleTogether: Tries this on Bulat. It fails, obviously.

!! Nyau

* CreepySouvenir: Cuts off and [[CollectorOfTheStrange collects people's faces]], while they're still alive.
* EnfanteTerrible: See CreepySouvenir above.
* HorrifyingTheHorror: Nyau's "hobby" unnerves even [[BloodKnight Daidara]].
* InstrumentOfMurder: Can use Scream as a melee weapon.
* MusicalAssassin: Uses a flute Teigu called Scream to affect listeners depending on what he plays.
* PunchedAcrossTheRoom: How he is killed by [[spoiler:a newly Incursio clad Tatsumi.]]
* TemporaryBulkChange: Secret Skill: Call of the Fierce God.

!! Daidara
* AnAxeToGrind: His Teigu, Belvaac, is a giant axe that can split into [[BifurcatedWeapon two homing boomerangs]].
* BloodKnight: Loves to fight so that he can gain [[ExperiencePoints "experience"]], so the stronger the better.
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: How he is slayed by [[spoiler:Bulat.]]
* SuperStrength: It's a requirement to wield Belvaac. He can cut through a whole crowd of [[{{Mook}} mooks]] in one swing.

!! Zank the Beheader

A former prison executioner. Seemed to be normal once, though due to the sheer amount of executions he was required to do under Prime Minister Honest, he began to develop a bloodlust and soon started to kill random people at night, fleeing to a new area once a punitive squad was assembled to deal with him.

* AxCrazy: [[FreudianExcuse Considering what the Prime Minister forced to put him through]], who wouldn't be?
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Two katars to be precise.
* BloodKnight: Though he prefers unarmed civilians incapable of putting up much resistance, he also loves to fight when he sees an opponent who can defend themselves.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: His name is Zank and he likes cutting people's heads off. Any questions?
* HeadphonesEqualIsolation: PlayedWith. He doesn't wear headphones to isolate himself from people or reality, he wears them in an attempt isolate himself from the [[HearingVoices voices he constantly hears within his head]]. [[spoiler:When his headphones break open after he's defeated by Akame he realizes the voices have stopped and [[DeathSeeker thanks Akame while he dies]].]]
* HearingVoices: See TheMentallyDisturbed below.
* HoneyTrap: He uses this against Tatsumi to lure him out into an area where he could slowly torture and kill him. Specifically his illusion power allows him to look like the person his target cared most about, and in Tatsumi's case, Sayo. It doesn't quite work the way he expected against Akame though.
* HopeSpot: He likes to torture people before killing them. One method he employs is to tell them he simply wants to talk with them, which seems reasonable enough. However, he usually decapitates them, then talks to the person's head.
* TheMentallyDisturbed: Showed symptoms of Schizophrenia, hearing dark voices that drove him further and further into insanity.
* MotorMouth: Zank does ''not'' stop talking. Even when in the midst of combat he never takes a minute to cease conversation, even between attacks. He intentionally [[InvokedTrope invokes]] this because in his mind, [[HearingVoices the voices in his head]] [[JustifiedTrope quiet down whenever he speaks]].
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: He earned his nickname by killing lots of prisoners. And when that wasn't enough, he started to kill random people as well.
* OhCrap: When Akame nearly kills him while under the effects of his [[MasterOfIllusion Illusion Sight]], which showed her the [[CainAndAbel person she loves the most]].
* PerpetualSmiler: Always seen with a [[SlasherSmile giant grin]] ''constantly''.
* PowerPerversionPotential: Zank's "Spectator" Teigu had multiple abilities related to sight, but there was one he never used. [[spoiler: When Tatsumi used Spectator, that hidden ability was the ability to see through people's clothes.]]
* RequiredSecondaryPowers: Had Zank's body been in top physical condition, he would have been able to keep up with the CombatClairvoyance that Spectator granted and would have been a ''much'' larger threat.
* SanitySlippage: After delivering numerous executions of various innocent people who were sentenced to death by the Prime Minister, Zank eventually went mad from the immense guilt brought on by the many innocent pleas of his victims.
* SerialKiller: Of the Hedonistic kind, coupled with his threat to the populace and possession of a powerful Teigu, makes him a target for assassination by the Night Raid.
* SlasherSmile: He sports a rather terrifying one.
* SuperpowerLottery: His Teigu, Spectator, is among the most versatile Teigu in the story. It grants Zank ''five'' abilities that when properly used in conjuction allows him to fight on par with ''Akame''. In the hands of a much more experienced combatant, it would have been a complete StoryBreakerPower.
* VillainousBreakdown: When he realizes that Akame [[NoSell isn't affected]] by his [[MasterOfIllusion Illusion Sight]] and proceeds to crack his katars, he falls into a mad craze and tries to finish her off before his weapon breaks, all while [[SmugSuper thinking he has still has the upper hand]] due to his [[CombatClairvoyance Spectator]].
* WakeUpCallBoss: Though just a VillainOfTheWeek, he seriously wounds Tatsumi in their fight. And even Akame isn't able to finish him off right away.


* ComboPlatterPowers: Spectator has been noted to grant its user a number of mental abilities.
** CombatClairvoyance: Grants its user the ability to see the smallest muscle movements of their opponents, allowing them to successfully predict what their next move is.
** MasterOfIllusion: Has the ability to cast illusions of one's loved ones to catch them off guard.
** SuperSenses: Grants the user impeccable long range vision.
** {{Telepathy}}: Grants the user the ability to read their opponents mind.
** XRayVision
