!!Kusuo Saiki

The MainCharacter. A 16 year old boy with extremely powerful psychic powers. He could use them to effortlessly have anything he wanted, but instead opts to settle down for a peaceful and quiet life.
-----
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: They lack a good deal of common sense and are SickeninglySweethearts.
* BerserkButton: Don't mess with his desserts.
* BlessedWithSuck: His powers take away many kinds of enjoyment and he [[PowerIncontinence hasn't complete control]] over them.
* CelibateHero: Because of his powers. XRayVision + {{Telepathy}} = [[NotDistractedByTheSexy Apathy]].
* {{Clairvoyance}}: By crossing his eyes, he can see and listen things happening in other places. It only works if he's visited and seen the place before in real life.
* ComicallyInvincibleHero: His numerous powers can bail him out of virtually any undesirable situation. This doesn't stop undesirable situations from happening to him anyways.
* CoverBlowingSuperpower: Revealing his powers to the world will attract unwanted attention to himself.
* DeadpanSnarker: Of the FirstPersonSmartass kind.
* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: If Kusuo isn't careful, people will get hurt. [[{{Gorn}} Badly]].
* TheEmpath: He can fell the affection rating of a person toward someone and illustrate it as [[RelationshipValues percentage value in a heart-shaped digital display]].
* FourthWallObserver: Kusuo's inner monologue is specifically addressed to the reader, but he doesn't break the Fourth Wall aloud.
* FriendlessBackground: His aim. His classmates don't collaborate.
* GrumpyBear: He's very cynical despite living a very pleasant world.
* HeWhoMustNotBeHeard: Whether he [[TheSpeechless can't speak]], [[TheQuietOne won't speak]] or [[TheVoiceless doesn't speak on screen]] remain to be seen.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: He doesn't really want to become a normal person, but he wants to live quietly as one.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: {{Inverted|Trope}}. He just wants to be alone, but his classmates keep trying be friends with him.
* IllKillYou: Threatens to kill Toritsuka with a sharpened roll of toilet paper if he ever reveals that he's a psychic to his classmates.
* {{Invisibility}}: It takes a full minute of concentration to activate and lasts for 10 minutes.
* InvisibilityWithDrawbacks: The effect is canceled if Saiki is touched by other people. [[spoiler: Also, it doesn't works against people who can [[ISeeDeadPeople see ghosts]]]].
* LivingLieDetector: Comes with being able to read people's minds.
* MediumAwareness: Possibly another of his psychic powers.
* MindManipulation: Downplayed. While he can't actually control people's minds, he can manipulate what people consider "natural" and "unnatural".
* MindOverMatter: Can use his mind to move people, objects, and even himself around.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: PlayedForLaughs and {{Deconstruction}} purposes instead DeusExMachina.
* NotSoStoic: Accidentally using psychometry on a person who can see ghosts causes him to look terrified.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: He could easily become TheAce, but he doesn't want to stand out.
* TheOmnipotent: Of the Type 5. Possibly Type 3.
* OnlySaneMan: To virtually every other character in the series.
* PlayingWithFire: Ranges from simply making objects feel hot to the touch to incinerating them to cinders.
* PowerIncontinence: Has problems controlling his own strength (see each specific power for description). It temporarily becomes an even greater problem after Nendou briefly unplugs one of his antennae.
* PowerLimiter: The antennae on his head keep his powers in check.
* PsychicPowers: Has just about every basic psychic power in the book. A list of Saiki's more unusual powers include:
** Psychic photography: Concentrating in somebody or something during one minute, he can draw an illustration of its present location.
** Psychometry: He can "see" an object's pass by simply touching it; touching a person allows him to see and feel the same things they do in real time. Since it cannot be turned off, he constantly wears transparent gloves to prevent himself from seeing all of the unpleasant things associated with each object.
** Sweating freely: He has the power to make himself sweat, which he uses to fool others into thinking that he's putting physical effort into races and sports activities.
* PsychicRadar: Based in to estimate the distance and position of each mental voice. 200m range.
* SeriousBusiness: Sweets, or anything that he "doesn't dislike".
* ShipperOnDeck: Kusuo will support Chiyo's relationship with any guy who is not himself, just so she will leave him alone.
* ShockAndAwe: Can summon lightning to just about anywhere he pleases.
* SilentPartner: He has never been seen talking to another living being.
* SpiderSense: Has the ability to notice dangers and menaces before them happen.
* TheStoic: Constantly wears a bored, deadpan expression and rarely cracks a smile. Enhanced by his StoicSpectacles.
* SuperSpeed: Can reach Olympic level speeds with relative ease.
* SuperStrength: He has problems [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength matching the strength level of ordinary people]].
* SweetTooth: He really likes coffee jello.
* {{Telepathy}}: [[PowerIncontinence Can't be shut off]], causing him to have to constantly listen to others' thoughts within a 200 meter range. It doesn't work on Nendou for some reason, likely because he's an idiot.
* TeleportersAndTransporters: He can teleport wherever he pleases, but it requires a three minute cooldown before he can use it again.
* WeatherManipulation: He is able to part clouds and make the sun come out during a strong downpour.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Cockroaches]]: Kusuo can't tolerate bugs because he can't read their thoughts. [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial It isn't because they look disgusting and he doesn't want to touch them even with psychokinesis]].
* XRayVision: [[PowerIncontinence It actives itself after 5 seconds whenever he gazes at anything]]. Don't work against other Telepaths.

[[folder:Students and Staff of PK Academy]]
!!Riki Nendou

A really idiotic delinquent that thinks he is best friends with Kusuo. He's actually a nice guy, but his stupidity and [[FaceOfAThug appearance]] cause his good deeds to backfire.
-----
* DisabilitySuperpower: He's immune to [[{{Telepathy}} mind-reading]] and [[PsychicRadar telepathic detection]] [[spoiler:because he's so stupid that he's never thinking anything at all. He's the only person who can sneak up on Kusuo and theoretically kill him.]].
* DisappearedDad: His father died before he was born. He was killed while saving a little girl from an oncoming truck.
* DumbMuscle: Makes up for his low intelligence with his impressive strength.
* FaceOfAThug: He's a very nice guy, but most people are either scared or disgusted with him because of his looks.
* JapaneseDelinquents: What he looks like.
* MistakenForPedophile: Kaidou mistakes him for one.
* NiceGuy: Or at least, he tries to be one. He truly is a nice guy, but his looks and intelligence make it hard for him to get the point across.
* PunnyName: "Nendou Riki" means "Telekinesis".
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Due to his appearance, nobody wants to be around him.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: His mother and father have the same chin, scars, and face as he does. His father looks exactly like him, hairstyle and all. [[spoiler: The location of their scars is what sets them apart.]]
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Shun Kaidou, after both try to win Saiki's companionship.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: How does he aid an unconscious person? [[spoiler:[[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan By beating the shit out of him]]]].


!!Shun Kaidou
->'''AKA:''' Jet-Black Wing

[[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Shun Kaidou]] is the SecretIdentity of Jet-Black Wing. Using the power of [[SealedEvilInACan Black Pete]], an godlike force [[SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan imprisioned in his right arm]], [[WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld he fights to protect the world]] from the Dark Reunion, a [[NebulousEvilOrganisation Secret Society]] that plans to steal [[MacGuffin Black Pete]] and use its power to [[TheSocialDarwinist weed out the unnecessary elements from humankind]] and [[TakeOverTheWorld create a new world]].

[[BaitAndSwitch Or not]]. Actually, Shun Kaidou just ''believes'' he's Jet-Black Wing. He suffers from something called Chuunibyou ("Junior High 2nd Year Syndrome"), a delusion of grandeur that usually affects children that are going through the puberty, even though he's already 16 years old. He also thinks Kusuo is his sidekick.
-----
* AffectionateParody: His appearance and the Jet-Black Wing's setup is a ClicheStorm from the Battle Shounen genre.
* CallingYourAttacks: Even though he has no real attacks. He also uses this trope for [[MundaneMadeAwesome mundane things]].
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Although how much he really believes in his own fantasies is debatable.
* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: He's right about Kusuo having powers, but not in the way he thinks.
* CoatCape: Uses the jacket of his school uniform like this.
* ConspiracyTheorist: Claims that Dark Reunion is behind every bad thing that happens.
* CowardlyLion: Has the guts to protect his classmates from a runaway snake despite being utterly mortified while doing so. Even Saiki is impressed by this act of bravery.
* FriendToAllChildren: He's so friendly around children that he'll temporarily snap out of his Jet-Black Wing persona while talking to them.
* GoodEyesEvilEyes: Usually, his eyes are narrow and simplistic. Whenever he lets the Jet-Black Wing persona slip, they turn very wide and friendly.
* JerkassFacade: He acts arrogantly and pretentiously, but beneath his Jet-Black Wing persona, he's a nice guy.
* HandwrapsOfAwesome: Supposedly, it seals Black Pete's power.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Chuunibyou is caused by this.
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: He's rather timid, but it's hard for anyone to tell when he's acting like the arrogant Jet-Black Wing all the time.
* LargeHam: He talks like a Battle Shonen protagonist.
* MilesGloriosus: None of his exploits as the "Jet-Black Wing" never actually happened. At least he's [[CowardlyLion capable of being brave]] when he's in a pinch.
* MrImagination: Has a severe case of Chuunibyou. He's convinced that in a previous life, he was a high level soldier of Dark Reunion who went rogue after he discovered their plans for world domination.
* PeekABangs: Usually, only one of his eyes can be seen at a time.
* ShonenHair: It's very spikey, and likely intentional on Kaidou's part.
* SuperDrowningSkills: He can't swim, and he won't get into the water without wearing an unnecessary number of life preservers. It's revealed that he can swim fairly well if it isn't pointed out that he's swimming.
* TerribleArtist: Tries to scribble down a picture of a child's lost dog based on its description. It ends up looking horrendous.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Riki Nendou, after competing with him over Saiki's companionship.


!!Kokomi Teruhashi

The prettiest and most popular girl in the school. Everyone falls under her charms, [[NotDistractedByTheSexy except Kusuo]].
-----
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Kokomi acts nicely and kindly, but she's manipulative and hides a deep contempt for her classmates. Kusuo can see through the facade, in more ways [[{{Telepathy}} than]] [[XRayVision one]].
* FilleFatale: She's great at attracting guys and making them do what she pleases.
* HelloNurse: Possibly the WorldsMostBeautifulWoman. In her presence, guys can't help but to stutter at her looks.
* {{Joshikousei}}: Her school uniform is the traditional Japanese sailor fuku.
* InformedAttractiveness: In her introductory chapter and onward, she doesn't stop reminding the viewer of how beautiful she thinks she is.
* SlaveToPR: Instead of acting like an AlphaBitch, she tries to maintain the image of being nice and kind.
* SpoiledBrat: Her true self. She can't stand the fact that unlike other guys, Saiki isn't hopelessly interested in her.
* SpoiledSweet: Her facade.


!!Chiyo Yumehara

A hopeless romantic girl with an unrequieted crush on Kusuo.
-----
* AffectionateParody: To lovesick, romance manga protagonists.
* CrushFilter: Whenever she imagines Saiki, he appears as a very idealistic, {{Bishounen}} love interest instead of the cynical, uninterested character that he is.
* {{Joshikousei}}: Her school uniform is the traditional Japanese sailor fuku.
* HopelessSuitor: To Kusuo, who isn't interested in her. All of her attempts to get close to him fail because he predicts every single move she makes.
* ThinksLikeARomanceNovel: In her introductory chapter, she constantly comes up with scenarios that put her and Saiki into over-romanticized situations. Saiki, who can see these thoughts perfectly, is not amused in the slightest.


!!Kineshi Hairo

The over-enthusiastic Class Representative. His enthusiasm infects everyone, except Kusuo.
-----
* AffectionateParody: Of hot-blooded, sports manga protagonists.
* ClassRepresentative: He's the class representative of Saiki's homeroom. As with everything he does, he's very proactive with his position.
* FistPump: Does this when he's coming up with a plan, fired up to do something, or after he's accomplished something. He's just that enthusiastic about everything.
* HotBlooded: An [[UpToEleven exaggerated]] version of this Trope.
* LargeHam: He will even sweat dramatically without apparent cause.
* LovableJock: Very athletic, and the most popular guy in the class, if not in the whole grade.
* ManlyTears: Whenever he feels moved. Sometimes also inspires others to shed them.
* NoIndoorVoice: Most of whatever comes out of his mouth is delivered in a loud, over-dramatic voice.
* NiceGuy: His hot-blooded passion for just about anything may come off as intense or annoying to some people, but he has a genuine desire to make others rise to their full potential.
* PunnyName: "Hairo Kineshi" is a play on the word "Pyrokinesis".
* RunningGag: His pants fall down whenever he trips.
* SeriousBusiness: Sports, teamwork, hard work, carrying heavy objects down a hallway...
* ShonenHair: His hair is red and spiked up.
* TestosteronePoisoning: His fiery obsession with hard work, determination, and pushing himself (and others) to ridiculous limits is so outlandish that it crosses into comedic territory.
!!Reita Toritsuka

A high-schooler who was born the ability to see and talk to ghosts. He is aware that Saiki has psychic powers because a ghost told him so.
-----
* CovertPervert: Lampshaded by Saiki, who's surprised that such an innocent looking person can be so indecent.
* GuardianEntity: Has the ability to see each person's guardian entity thanks to his powers. [[spoiler: His own personal guardian spirit is Nenou's lazy, deceased father.]]
* ISeeDeadPeople: His special ability, which he's had ever since he was born.
* NewTransferStudent: Transfers to Saiki's school the day after he introduces himself to him. [[LampshadeHanging Saiki complains]] that the development is way too cliched.
* NotSoDifferent: When his psychometry forces him to see what Toritsuka has to see every day, Saiki sympathizes with his situation.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers: He tries to obtain psychic powers so that he can peep at girls to his heart's content.
