[[folder: Cat's Eye]]
The Kisugi sisters and their allies in heist.
----
Tropes associated with multiple members of the group:
* {{Action Girl}}s
* AnimalMotifs: [[CaptainObvious No, really?]]
* ButNotTooForeign: The Kisugi sisters have a German father and a Japanese mother. They don't look like Europeans at all.
** Partially subverted by Hitomi: as a child she was blonde like her father and grandmother, and halfway during the series she has to dye her hair due the return of blonde strands in her hair.
* CallingCard: A literal calling card with a stylized cat and the words Cat's Eye on it, left to mark their success or to send messages, ''including what will be their next heist''. [[spoiler: [[JustifiedTrope It's part of their attempt at contacting Michael Heintz]].]]
* {{Classy Cat Burglar}}s: And cat-themed to boot.
* CrimefightingWithCash: Sort of: the Kisugi sisters are filthy rich, and use their money to [[InvertedTrope finance their thefts]], [[WeHelpTheHelpless help people when they can]] (and at least once this made them ''even richer''), and to expose a sale of fake painting by ''paying for a squadron of F-15 to move the real ones from New York to Japan and then exhibit them the next door from the fakes' sale''.
* CutLexLuthorACheck: The Kisugi sisters could be very successful professional athletes in multiple disciplines, art critics, actresses, police officers and, in Ai's case, as a scientist, yet they only use these abilities to steal.
** Subverted with their skills as art critics: Ai used her knowledge of arts (that is noted to be superior to her sisters') to unmask a sale of fake paintings.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: The Kisugi's sister father disappeared in a fire when they were children, with all his paintings being stolen and themselves and their mother being hunted down by the killers until they managed to disappear.
* DressingAsTheEnemy: One of their favourite tricks is to disguise themselves as generic police officers, with Rui disguising herself as Toshio in a memorable occasion (leading to him being MistakenForGay due Rui's inability to act manly) and Hitomi taking Mitsuko's place in multiple occasions (including two ''in the same chapter'').
* FountainOfExpies: Pretty much every female PhantomThief is at least somewhat based on the Kisugi sisters. The most prominent expies are Kasumi Aso from ''Manga/CityHunter'' (a professional thief who only steals on commission and for good reasons, who looks like Hitomi and ''ends up working at the Cat's Eye cafe'' for good measure) and Alex from ''TotallySpies'' (based mostly on Ai's personality, with her same name in the French dub).
* {{Fiction500}}: The properties of the Kisugi sisters include a gigantic golf club, and they can casually create a pharmaceutical company capable of buying out half the Japanese market.
* [[FiveManBand Five Thieves Band]]
** TheHero: Hitomi
** TheLancer: Rui
** [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]] / TheChick: Ai
** TheBigGuy: Nagaishi
** SixthRanger: Kamiya / The Rat (sometimes)
* HeroInsurance: They don't have it, but they don't even have to pay for the immense amount of collateral damage they leave behind.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Hitomi and Rui have metallic versions of their calling cards to throw at people. Also, they have weaponized the ''paper'' version.
* LatexPerfection: Including gloves with fake fingerprints.
* [[MasterOfDisguise Masters of Disguise]]
* MeaningfulName: Cat's Eye is [[spoiler: the name of Michael Heintz's favourite cocktail, that he invented himself. Naming the gang and the bar Cat's Eye is part of their call for him]].
* MsFanservice: Ai just a little less than her sisters, but they all qualify.
* ParentalAbandonment: The Kisugi sisters' father, Michael Heintz, was apparently killed in a fire when they were little (Ai was so young she didn't even know his face), and their mother died sometime later. The search for their father drives half of the plot.
* [[PhantomThief Phantom Thieves]]
* RefugeInAudacity: They get away with most of what they do because the police won't expect them to be ''that'' crazy. Among what they do, they have a coffee house ''called Cat's Eye'' placed ''right behind a police station'', and that includes half the personnel of the police station among their patrons.
* RichIdiotWithNoDayJob: Subverted: the sisters and Nagaishi are filthy rich, yet the sisters work at a bar and Nagaishi is a powerful businessman.
* RoofHopping
* RuleOfCool: Many of Cat's Eye's heists refuses functionality specifically to call for more attention. [[spoiler: [[JustifiedTrope It's part of their attempt at contacting Michael Heintz]].]]
* SecretIdentity: The Kisugi sisters' identity as both Cat's Eye and the daughters of Michael Heintz are kept secret. On the other hand, at one point of the manga Hitomi's Cat's Eye persona admits being Heintz's daughter...
* SeriousBusiness: Art in general and paintings in particular. Faking paintings and selling them as the original is a good way to get on their shit list.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: For the Rat, who was the most famous PhantomThief of Japan before they started stealing.
* SpyCatsuit
* StuffBlowingUp: They tend to use generous amounts of explosive whenever they're sure they won't hurt anyone.
* VoiceChangeling
* WeHelpTheHelpless: Sometimes they stop and help people for no reason other than they can and it's the right thing. For example, [[ItMakesSenseInContext the pharmaceutical company mentioned above was created to get Mitsuko out of a forced marriage]].
* [[WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys Where Do They Get All Those Wonderful Toys?]]: Ai builds some of them, and the rest (and the parts for Ai's inventions) are bought with their insane wealth.

[[WMG: Hitomi Kisugi]]
The main protagonist and the middle sister. Her love story with Toshio drives most of the plot.
----
Tropes associated with Hitomi:
* ArentYouGoingToRavishMe: She takes offense when it looks Toshio is going to ravish her but actually isn't, or [[AccidentalPervert does something pervert to her by accident]] and explain that he would have not done it if he could have chose.
* ButNotTooForeign: Partially subverted: as mentioned above, she's the only one of the sisters who partially looks like she has a German father.
* ChristmasCake: She's implied to fit the age part, but doesn't really care.
* ClingyJealousGirl
* DaddysGirl: Toshio is noted to ''really'' resemble her father.
* DumbBlonde: When in her Blonde Cat's Eye persona she tends to act like a valley girl, remaining extremely competent all the time.
* HelloNurse
* TheHero
* [[IdenticalAncestor Identical Grandmother]]: Hitomi is a dead-ringer for her ''German'' paternal grandmother, except for the hair and eye colour (she has black hair and brown eyes, while the grandmother had blonde hair and green eyes). Halfway during the manga she [[InvokedTrope invokes]] this by dying her hair, wearing green lenses and presenting herself to Toshio as a member of Cat's Eye ''and'' Michael Heintz's daughter while standing right next to a portrait of her grandmother.
* JerkassFacade: At the start of the manga she claims she's still dating Toshio only to get informations for their heists, partly in an attempt to convince herself of this. She stops pretending after willingly botching an heist to save Toshio's career.
* RuleOfCool: Even more than her sisters, Hitomi does extremely dangerous things during the heists to grab even more attention.
* SecretIdentityIdentity: When the girls decide to try and make Toshio join Cat's Eye, Hitomi tries to seduce him into joining as the Blonde Cat's Eye, only to discover she's jealous of her blonde persona... And the Blonde Cat's Eye is jealous of Hitomi. [[LampshadeHanging She also wonders what's wrong with her]].
** In the end, the situation is solved when Hitomi admits to herself [[spoiler: and to Toshio]] that everyday's Hitomi and the Blonde Cat's Eye are just sides of Hitomi's personality.
* SuperSpeed and SuperReflexes: She's by far the fastest and most agile character in the series, with Rui once [[LampshadeHanging wondering if she was even human]].
* YouCantFightFate: In her Blonde Cat's Eye persona she loves to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this on Toshio, stating there's a bond, created by fate, between herself, Heintz and Toshio... [[SubvertedTrope Alluding to the fact Toshio will become Heintz's son in law if he marries Hitomi]].

[[WMG: Rui Kisugi]]
The older and wiser of the Kisugi sisters.
----
Tropes associated with Rui:
* AttractiveBentGender: She once disguised as a man to prove she could, and Mitsuko fell for her at first sight. Also, she once disguised herself as Toshio... And was sexier than the real thing.
* BeautyMark: A mole on her cheek, right near the lips
* ChristmasCake: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]: she has the age, but she doesn't care in the slightest.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer
* FemmeFatale: Subverted: she looks like one, but doesn't act the part unless it's for an heist or [[ThePrankster to prank Toshio]].
* FixingTheGame: Don't bet against her at anything that involves her throwing or spinning something, she can calculate how much strength she needs to use to get her desired result. She has been shown doing this with French-style roulette, American-style roulette, and ''RussianRoulette'' (the guy who bet against her on the latter [[BringMyBrownPants soiled himself]] when Rui grabbed the gun on his turn and showed he was about to kill himself).
* HelloNurse: In-universe she's considered the most beautiful woman around.
* [[IdenticalAncestor Identical Mother]]: she looks like her mother, right down to the mole.
* TheLancer
* TheLeader
* ThePrankster: She often pranks her sisters and makes ludicrous claims just for the hell of it.
* PromotionToParent: She acts as a mother for her sisters.
* ShipperOnDeck: Ships Hitomi/Toshio.
* ShipTease: With ''Toshio''.
* StatuesqueStunner: Very tall, to the point she was surprised to find out that Toshio is slightly taller.

[[WMG: Ai Kisugi]]
The youngest of the Kisugi sisters, still an high school student.
----
Tropes associated with Ai:
* {{Bokukko}}: An early example.
* TheChick: She's the less capable of the girls when it comes to stealing, relegating her to support roles.
* GadgeteerGenius: More pronounced in the anime, but still present in the manga.
* GeniusDitz
* HelloNurse: Rather beautiful, even if not as her sisters. Ironically, she's the one with the most in-universe fans, as Hitomi and Rui are so beautiful that they subdue their admirers with their presence alone.
* HiddenDepths: She's a ditz and quite childish. She's also the finest art critic in the series, and can recognize a very good fake from the original with a single glance.
* [[IdenticalAncestor Identical Mother]]: She's growing up very similar to her mother and oldest sister, only without the mole.
* SheCleansUpNicely: A particularly extreme example, as the only thing she needs to graduate from 'cute girl' to 'drop-dead gorgeous woman' is to ''squint her eyes'': by making her eyes appear smaller her face is much more mature, and her natural good looks do the rest.
* [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]]
* WrenchWench

[[WMG: Sadatsugu Nagaishi]]
An old friend of Michael Heintz. He administrates the girls' immense properties and sometimes helps for the heists.
----
Tropes associated with Nagaishi:
* TheBigGuy: He's ''huge''.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[NoodleIncident He mentioned having been a]] [[HiredGuns mercenary]]
* {{Fiction500}}: Not as rich as the sisters, but still filled with money.
* GentleGiant
* NoSenseOfMeasure: This man considers normal to ''reserve a whole theatre for Hitomi's date with Toshio'', and using a squad of heavily-armed mercenaries to ''keep street punks away from them''.
* ParentalSubstitute: The closest thing the girls have to a father.
* RememberTheNewGuy: The girls are already familiar with him when he's introduced.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: To Moriya.
* UnclePennybags: Whenever the sisters are involved.

[[WMG: Moriya]]
Another friend of Heintz, who was supposed to care for his daughters but didn't find them before they disappeared.
----
Tropes associated with Moriya:
* AnArmAndALeg: Lost the left arm during one of the many assassinations attempted on him by the Cranaff Syndicate.
* ParentalSubstitute: Wanted to be this, but the Kisugi sisters disappeared on him before he could start doing it.
** Still manages to be one for Ai.
* PutOnABus: Disappears with no apparent reason at the end of the arc that introduced the Cranaff Syndicate, and his role is taken by Nagaishi.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Anti-Cat's Eye Special Squad]]
Formerly part of the first squad of the Inunari Precint, they are the guys assigned to arrest Cat's Eye.
----
Tropes associated with the entire squad:
* AccidentalPervert: The incident that resulted with the squad being formed involved [[ItMakesSenseInContext Cat's Eye convincing the future members of the squad to look under women's skirts searching for a mole]]
* BunnyEarsLawyer
* HeroAntagonist
* MistakenForGay: Most of the squad, at least once.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: They're very good cops. It's just that Cat's Eye is even better.
* PoliceAreUseless: Averted: they do a good job at keeping order, and the first chapter with the squad has them arresting a dangerous criminal in a very awesome and funny way.
* RagTagBunchOfMisfits: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]].
* ReassignedToAntarctica: The squad was initially formed because the members had embarrassed the police too many times during the hunt for Cat's Eye, with and later being assigned to them for unrelated screw ups.
** ReassignmentBackfire: As soon as the squad is formed, Cat's Eye proceeds to humiliate the first squad in a heist, and doesn't get away with the loot only because the Special Squad manages to steal it back from her.
* SympatheticInspectorAntagonist: All of them.
* TrueCompanions
* WorthyOpponent: Positively identified as such by Cat's Eye.

[[WMG: Toshio Utsumi]]
Cat's Eye main foe, and Hitomi's boyfriend since high school.
----
Tropes associated with Toshio:
* AccidentalPervert: Rather often. Including that one time he grabbed a member of Cat's Eye (actually Hitomi, but he couldn't see her face due to darkness) and ''groped her''.
** BrickJoke: The grabbing incident allowed the police to identify at least one member of Cat's Eye as a woman.
* AttractiveBentGender: Toshio once crossdressed, and was downright sexy.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He's not too intelligent. Can also run almost as fast as them, can overpower any one of the girls (not easy due their martial arts knowledge), he's a crack shot, and nearly trapped them more than once.
* DatingCatwoman: Bonus point for his girlfriend being cat-themed. Hitomi's attempts to stop him from realizing her 'side job' provide part of the story's drama.
* DoesNotLikeGuns: [[IJustShotMarvinInTheFace He once fooled around with his service weapon and shot himself in the leg]], and is terrified by guns ever since. He's still a crack shot.
* FairCop: Not too bad on the eyes, and even has a legion of fangirls.
* HiddenDepths: In spite of his usual idiocy, he's the only one who has ever identified part of Cat's Eye apparently random pattern of heists, even identifying one of their targets ''before them''.
* IdiotHero: Less stupid than most examples, but still an idiot.
* KavorkaMan: Not exactly ugly, but ''the entire female cast'' has shown attraction for him.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: He often comes near capturing Cat's Eye, and he's the only cop who has ever ''grabbed'' one of them.
* ScrewDestiny: Toshio's usual answer to the Blonde Cat's Eye declaration that YouCantFightFate: he's in love with Hitomi, and to hell with fate's will.
* SingleTargetSexuality: He has eyes only for Hitomi.
** Subverted with [[HelloNurse Rui]], whose charms have effect even on him.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Female Underwear?]]: [[ItMakesSenseInContext Terrified of female underwear due a childhood trauma]].

[[WMG: Chief Murakami]]
The chief of the cops assigned to arrest Cat's Eye. Passes most of his time berating his men for their latest failure.
----
Tropes associated with Murakami:
* DaChief
* OnlySaneMan: Even if not as much as Mitsuko.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure

[[WMG: Mitsuko Asatani]]
An elite officers who moved to the Inunari Precint from the headquarters, and Hitomi rival in love.
----
Tropes associated with Mitsuko:
* ActionGirl
* AndNowYouMustMarryMe: She found herself in this situation. When the girls removed the situation that was forcing her to get married she still insisted for the ceremony [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome just to tell her husband wannabe she would not marry him and]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hit him in the face with a pie]].
* BerserkButton: Do ''not'' mention her apparent lack of femininity or her status as ChristmasCake.
* BlindWithoutEm: Not exactly blind, but very short-sighted.
* CassandraTruth: She quickly realizes that the Kisugi sisters are Cat's Eye, but is unable to prove it.
* ChristmasCake: She's nearing that age, and, after renoucing to marry Toshio, gets rather cranky whenever she gets turn down by a possible suitor.
** NoGuyWantsAnAmazon: The reason she got turned down so many times: while rather feminine, her extreme competence as a cop and refusal to be a traditional OfficeLady scares them away.
* CovertPervert: As long as it's with Toshio (or, later, Kamiya)...
* CowboyCop: Skirts the line between this and ByTheBookCop.
* DatingCatwoman: Starts dating Kamiya late in the manga.
** Before that, [[ItMakesSenseInContext she fell for Rui disguised as a male member of Cat's Eye]].
* DeadpanSnarker
* DefrostingIceQueen
* TheDeterminator: She's very short-sighted, but taking away her glasses only means she can't drive or shoot, [[ManBitesMan not that she can't bite until you bleed]].
* FairCop: Very good looking and proud of it.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: At one point she renounces to Toshio because of this.
* LethalChef: Some of her dishes are potentially lethal.
** [[SubvertedTrope On the other hand, she can prepare a good coffee, if she does it with love.]] [[DoubleSubversion She never does it with love.]]
* LoveTriangle: At one point in the manga she believes to be in one with Rui [[ItMakesSenseInContext and Rui's alter ego as a male member of Cat's Eye]].

* NotSoStoic: Her attempts at being classy are regularly foiled by the crazy antics of her colleagues, and she later showed she's almost as crazy.
* ObliviousToLove: It took her ''a week'' to realize she had received a love declaration from Kamiya.
* OfficeLady: {{Deconstructed}} by showing what happens when you force a capable and ambitious woman (who is also a LethalChef) in this role.
* OnlySaneWoman: The only member of the Precint and the Special Squad to realize that discussing plans to catch Cat's Eye in a public place (and the Cat's Eye cafe to boot) is a bad idea.
* PairTheSpares: She ends up with Kamiya.
* ShipTease: With Kamiya.
* [[ManBitesMan Woman Bites Woman]]: She's not above biting if it can stop a suspect or Cat's Eye, as Hitomi discovered the wrong way.

[[WMG: Takeshi Hirano]]
A young officers who idolizes Toshio.
----
Tropes associated with Hirano:
* BerserkButton: Don't touch his glasses.
* CoolBike: Has an Harley Davidson.
* CowboyCop: Has this attitude, and a large revolver to go with it.
* CrazyJealousGuy: As Takeuchi said, flirting with Rui means you'll never go back at the Cat's Eye for fear of getting shot. God helps you if you are being clingy.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He's a trigger happy idiot, but give him a clear shot and he'll hit the target or do a [[KnifeOutline Bullet Outline]], depending on what's appropriate for the situation.
* EightiesHair: Sports a rather impressive mullet. It got him [[FaceOfAThug mistaken for a rapist murderer]] and kicked in the face by Takeuchi (who didn't know him yet and then {{Lampshaded}} it once he knew him)... And he ''still'' continues with it.
* FaceOfAThug: He looks more like a {{Yakuza}} than a cop. Endlessly {{Lampshaded}}, with Hitomi neutralizing him by crying he was a pervert and a murderer during a chase (him swinging his HandCannon didn't help his case).
* GunNut: Rather obsessed with guns in in general and his HandCannon in particular. He's even ''called'' a gun nut to his face...
* HandCannon: Doesn't carry the standard issue .38 Special revolver (either the Smith & Wesson Model 36, the S&W Model 37 or the New Nambu M60) but the Smith & Wesson Model 686 chambered in ''.357 Magnum'' (can still fire the .38 Special), and is rather good with it.
* LikesOlderWomen: Madly in love with Rui.
* [[SecurityBlanket Security Sunglasses]] [[SunglassesAtNight At Night]]: Always wears his sunglasses due his insecurities. That, and he has ridiculous small eyes.
* ShipperOnDeck: Ships Toshio and Hitomi... So Toshio will stay away from Rui!
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Takeuchi.
* TriggerHappy: Most of his problems come from his tendency to shoot too often than it's safe. Got the rather justified nicknames "GunNut" and "Mad Shooter" for that...
* VitriolicBestBuds: Again, with Takeuchi.
* {{Yakuza}}: Gets often mistaken for one due his fashion sense.

[[WMG: Takeuchi]]
An old friend of Toshio since the police academy, was transferred to the Inunari Precint only after a few chapters.
----
Tropes associated with Takeuchi:
* BerserkButton: If you're a criminal (or he mistakes you for one), don't call him shorty, or you'll receive a flying kick in the face.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Passes most of his time annoying people with speeches on the JapaneseSpirit or [[{{Ephebophile}} trying to woo Ai]]. He's also a master karateka capable of taking down much bigger opponents.
* TheDeterminator: During a chase, he kept up with Hitomi's motorbike using a ''bicycle''.
* {{Ephebophile}}: He fell in love with Ai at first sight.
** NeverLiveItDown: Pretty much everyone else has called him a pedophile at least once.
* JapaneseSpirit: He's fixated with it.
* PintSizedPowerHouse: He's very short, and a master karateka.
* ShipperOnDeck: Ships Toshio and Hitomi... So Toshio will stay away from Ai!
* StalkerWithACrush: A borderline example toward Ai.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Hirano.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Again, with Hirano.

[[WMG: Juzo Unno]]
An old but experienced officer, assigned to the Anti-Cat's Eye Squad due his embarrassing habits.
----
Tropes associated with Unno:
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Even more than the rest of the squad: he's a pervert with the habit of travelling on trains without ticket (he'll steal someone else's) and casually pickpocketing people, and a scary competent cop who dealt with a dangerous criminal by stealing the magazine of his gun (with the train ticket, of course) and luring him where he knows there's half a dozen other cops.
* DirtyOldMan
* FiveFingerDiscount: He's an expert on pickpockets, and a capable pickpocket himself.
* TheMatchmaker: His hobby.
* NamesTheSame: Has the same name of a famous Japanese science-fiction author.
* OnlyKnownByHisNickname: His real name is known, but almost everyone calls him Shige.

[[WMG: Kizaki]]
Toshio's replacement in the first squad. Later transferred to the Anti-Cat's Eye squad due an undisclosed screw-up.
----
Tropes associated with Kizaki:
* ButtMonkey
* CasanovaWannabe: His first plan to capture Cat's Eye was to charm her with what he called his angelic face. [[CaptainObvious It failed]] [[EpicFail miserably]]. He also brags about his supposed charm quite often.
* TheComicallySerious: Provides a lot of humour by saying ridiculous things with an utterly serious face.
* CreepyCrossdresser: Only for the sake of arresting criminals.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He may get humiliated most of the times we see him, but that's because [[OvershadowedByAwesome he tackles with Cat's Eye]]. [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome He's also prone to capture dangerous criminals off-screen]], and a decent pugilist.
* FairCop: He's rather good looking, and proud of it. Even if not as much as Toshio.
* LikesOlderWomen: Madly in love with Rui.
* MilesGloriosus: He often brags of his skills as cop, but we only ever see him getting humiliated.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: After the attempt to charm Cat's Eye failed he put together a good plan to catch at least one member of the group, and failed only because Hitomi managed to see through it.
* ShipperOnDeck: Ships Toshio and Hitomi... So Toshio will stay away from Rui!
[[/folder]]

[[folder: The Cranaff Syndicate]]
The men who tried to kill Heintz to get his paintings, composed by his disciples and various buyers.
----
Tropes associated with the Cranaff Syndicate:
* ChekhovsGun: A number of paintings and jewels stolen by Cat's Eye before their introduction are revealed to have been in possession of Syndicate members at the moment of the heist.
* KickTheDog: After apparently killing Heintz they tried to do the same with his family and friends.
* KilledOffForReal: Various members of the Syndicate die facing the girls, and the survivors [[spoiler: are blown up by Cranaff]].
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Aside for Cranaff, they initially decide that Cat's Eye cannot be Heintz's vengeful children because they're females.
* TheSyndicate

[[WMG: Cranaff]]
Heintz's main disciple, and the leader of the group. [[spoiler: He's also Heint'z twin brother]].
----
Tropes associated with Cranaff:
* BigBad
* [[spoiler: CainAndAbel]]
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The only member of the Syndicate who was willing to consider the chance that Cat's Eye was composed of Heintz's daughters [[spoiler:(i.e. his nieces)]], and manages to discover their identities.
* [[spoiler: EvilTwin]]
* NoNameGiven: Cranaff is a fake name, with his true [[spoiler: given]] name remaining unknown.
* [[spoiler: RedemptionEqualsDeath]]

[[WMG: Hiroyuki Seguchi]]
The Syndicate's most prominent member, a rich man with political connections.
----
Tropes associated with Seguchi:
* ButtMonkey: He appears three times. The first time, he gets arrested ([[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections he gets out thanks to his connections]] [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney and money]]), the second time Ai sends him crashing in the Inunari Precint and [[ItMakesSenseInContext makes him believe his car was possessed by a ghost]], and the third is covered under HumiliationConga.
* ChekhovsGunman: He first appears as the unnamed {{Jerkass}} owning a museum targeted by Cat's Eye. Various chapters later, Cat's Eye warns the police they'll steal a supposedly burned painting from him, thus introducing the whole Cranaff Syndicate.
* FatBastard
* FrameUp: Tries to frame Cat's Eye for murder. The police sees through it as he described Cat's Eye as a group of tall men (Cat's Eye including at least one woman was not known outside of the police yet), but they let him do it to have the chance of getting evidence against him and try and arrest Cat's Eye too.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In his final appearance he confided in a group of armoured dog to kill at least the member of Cat's Eye whose smell they had sniffed (Ai). Ai successfully dodges the the armoured dogs in the garden and uses them to deal with his men inside the mansion.
** Happens to the armoured dogs too: some of them are neutralized when they hit each other with the spikes on their armours.
* HumiliationConga: His last appearance has his mansion devastated by [[ItMakesSenseInContext Ai fending off armoured dogs and axe-wielding cops trying to save her]], one of the outer walls is destroyed by Ai to run away with a painting, then he's arrested for the murder he tried to pin on Cat's Eye, the attempted murder of Cat's Eye ''and'' perjury, and Toshio decides to humiliate him further by revealing the police saw through his frame up since the start and that Cat's Eye is composed by women.
* KilledOffForReal: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]: he's the only member of the Cranaff Syndicate who is not confirmed as having been blown up by [[spoiler: Cranaff]] or being otherwise dead.
* PutOnABus: After the failed frame up he's arrested for murder and attempted murder, and isn't seen again.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections and Connections]]: In his first appearance he's caught in possession of various stolen paintings and arrested. In a later chapter we see Toshio complaining for his release and the disappearance of the evidence, obtained either due corruption or his political connections, or both. He later uses his money to get away with some other crimes, before being arrested again for murder and attempted murder.
* SuperPersistentPredator: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]]: after seizing a piece of Ai's clothes, he has a group of armoured dogs smell it so they'll chase Cat's Eye until they murder the member who lost the piece of cloth. Ultimately subverted, as Ai uses the armoured dogs to neutralize his guards before defeating them.
* WakeUpCallBoss: In his final appearance. Before then, any foe faced by the girls was easily fooled and defeated, Seguchi included. Then Hitomi nearly ''dies'' to steal a painting from him, the painting is revealed being a fake ''on live TV'', he convincingly frames Cat's Eye for murder (the police sees through it only because they know Cat's Eye is a band of women while he described them as tall men), and Kamiya and Ai are nearly killed by his armoured dogs.
** Also, his first confrontation with Cat's Eye involved the girls getting in a desperate fight with a GiantMook tough enough to shrug off being hit on the head with a bottle.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Other Villains]]
Assorted villains with some impact on the story.

[[WMG: Ambassador of the Country S]]
A foreign ambassador implicated in arts smuggling.
----
Tropes associated with the ambassador:
* AssInAmbassador
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: It's one of his musings that make Toshio realize that Cat's Eye mainly steals only a particular batch of Cranaff's paintings.

[[WMG: The owner of the illegal casinos, [[spoiler: Kusumi]]]]
The owner of a chain of underground casinos and of the 'Cranaff' painting "Dangerous Woman", that Hitomi plans to win from him. Keeps secret [[spoiler: his]] identity and gender.
----
Tropes associated with [[spoiler: Kusumi]]:
* AbsurdlyHighStakesGame: Accepts Hitomi's stakes of an undisclosed but ludicrously high amount of money against the painting "Dangerous Woman".
* AffablyEvil: [[spoiler: She]] may be a criminal, but that's only because [[spoiler: her]] casinos, administrated honestly and with fair play, are illegal.
* TheCasino: Owns at least three of them one of which on a ship. They're all illegal.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Realizes that Hitomi and Rui (who is being [[spoiler: her]] croupier) are most probably members of Cat's Eye upon seeing them.
* TheDogWasTheMastermind: TheReveal surprised Hitomi, Rui (who had earlier befriended [[spoiler: her]]) and ''most of the casino personnel''.
* GracefulLoser: Immediately pays the stakes upon losing, and offers a trip back to shore. [[spoiler: Her]] caretaker, on the other hand, needs to be threatened with a torpedo...
* NobleDemon: The only reason [[spoiler: she]] is a villain is because [[spoiler: she]] is a criminal and owns casinos (illegal under Japanese law).
* ProperlyParanoid: Chooses [[spoiler: her]] croupier at the last moment to insure fairness, and, upon realizing that her chosen croupier Rui is most probably an accomplice of Hitomi ''and'' capable of sending the ball wherever she wants, she has their game played the French way, with bets placed ''after'' the wheel is spun. Hitomi and Rui ''still'' manage to fix the game.
* WorthyOpponent: Picks [[spoiler: her]] opponents in bets among the best and luckiest players of her casinos. To challenge [[spoiler: her]], Hitomi had to cheat her way into simulating having almost impossible luck.

* HandicappedBadass: Crippled in both legs.
* KarmaHoudini: He's ultimately foiled, but escapes arrest and disappears.

----
* AnimalMotifs: The Rat.
* {{Badass}}: He doesn't like fighting, but when he gets involved in hand-to-hand combat he's formidable.

* ChivalrousPervert
* DressingAsTheEnemy: Often disguises himself as a cop.

* GentlemanThief: He calls himself one (and once demanded that the police started calling him that), but he's a bit too perverted to fully qualify.
* HandsomeLech
* IntrepidReporter: His cover to justify his interest on the police's doing. He's rather good at it.

* ObfuscatingStupidity: In spite of his antics and generally acting like an idiot, he's really smart, and managed to uncover Cat's Eye secret.
* OnlySaneMan: Often [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] Cat's Eye rather 'passionate' approach to stealing.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: As a thief he's just as good as Cat's Eye (and possibly even better: he can sneak up on them, while they never managed to sneak up on him), but their methods just get them more fame.
** Also {{Inverted}}, as he proved many times he's just as good if not better than the girls.
* PairTheSpares: He ends up with Mitsuko.
* PhantomThief: A professional one, differently from Cat's Eye, and specialized on jewels (a secondary target for Cat's Eye).

* TheRival: To Cat's Eye. Also to Toshio for Hitomi's love.
* RoofHopping: Used as last resort, as he favours less dangerous approaches.

* ShipTease: With Mitsuko.
* SixthRanger

Tropes associated with Kazumi:
* AlphaBitch: Mild example.
* BrutalHonesty: And poor Hirano and Takeuchi are at the receiving end of it.
* NotSoHarmless: At first she's only annoying due her attempts at seducing Kono, and the only reason she gets involved in the story is that she photographed Hitomi as Cat's Eye by chance (the camera was set to photograph the moon, so she only got a silhouette). Then she sees one of the Cat's Eye in action, recognizes her as Hitomi, and starts helping Mitsuko...
* SchoolNewspaperNewshound
