The characters of the manga series ''Manga/{{D-Frag}}''. Still a work in progress.

'''''Note:'' Unmarked spoilers ahead!'''


[[folder:The Game Development Club (temp)]]
!The Game Development Club (temp)
Tropes shared by the club in general:

* ACupAngst: All the females are pretty annoyed at Takao's bust.
* AmbiguouslyBi: All of them except Kazama.
* {{Calvinball}}: The kind of games they create.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Goes without saying, but they are often the main source of weirdness, if not the outright cause of it.
* ComedicSociopathy: They’re prone to causing this. Especially Chitose.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: All of them. Although Kazama is more of a [[OvershadowedByAwesome Crouching Badass,]] [[NotSoAboveItAll Hidden Moron]].
* ElementalPowers: Parodied. All of them have an element except Shiou (although he is implied to be [[LightEmUp light]] since he [[BishieSparkle sparkles]] so much), though they're more like themes -- [[MakingASplash Sakura is water]], [[DishingOutDirt Chitose is earth]], [[ShockAndAwe Oosawa is electricity]], [[PlayingWithFire Roka is fire]]/[[CastingAShadow darkness]], and [[BlowYouAway Kazama is wind]]. It often just amounts to them throwing water and dirt at people, etc.
* GamerChick: The girls, obviously, but Roka and Sakura stand out.

!!Kenji Kazama
->''"It's too late to go down the coward's path now. I'll rule this school with my fists!"''
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/KatsuyukiKonishi

A delinquent and leader of his three-man clique, who made the mistake of trying to bully the Game Development Club (temp) one day, only to end up being ''bullied'' into joining. Now an unwilling member of the Game Development Club (temp), he is forced to spend his days bitterly dealing with their nonsensical antics.
* AccidentalPervert: Twice towards Takao and her GagBoobs -- in Chapter 6/Episode 3, when Roka shoves her in jealousy for trying to come closer to Kenji (only to be rebuffed by his spiky hair), only for him to turn around and get a faceful; and in Chapter 9/Episode 4, when the first thing he sees upon exiting the clubroom are her bouncing assets as she is jumping up and down while trying to remove the "True Game Development Club" poster hung over his clubroom after winning the SchoolFestival contest against the other Game Development Club.
* {{Badass}}: Although he doesn’t get many chances to show it.
* BlowYouAway: His "elemental" motif, on account of his name.
* BlueWithShock: Might as well be his default expression.
* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine: He is the tsukkomi. [[WorldGoneMad The rest of the world is the boke.]] The sheer amount of punchlines he drops in later chapters pushes this trope UpToEleven.
* BuxomIsBetter: He seems to think so, but not really touched upon other than an offhanded comment to Takao to distract her.
* CluelessChickMagnet: He has a harem and doesn't seem to realize that they like him, excluding Roka, who is the most proactive of the lot.
* CoolBigBro: To Noe.
* CrossPoppingVeins: Almost a regular feature of his.
* {{Determinator}}: This guy just hates to lose.
* DistressedDude: While Kazama can hold his own in a fight, he tends to get kidnapped a lot.
** Chapters 31 and 32 lampshade this. When the girls hear he was kidnapped, they only ask "Again?", and they give him the nickname "Princess Pinch".
* TheDragAlong: He’d much rather just read a book or something than dish out punchlines all day.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: A RunningGag. Despite the Kazama Gang being actually infamous ''and named after him'', nobody recognizes Kazama himself.
* GenreSavvy[=/=]WrongGenreSavvy: Zigzagged, depending on the occasion and/or joke.
* GuileHero: Since he can't compete with the girls physically, the few times he manages to one-up his other club members are through deception and quick thinking.
* HairTriggerTemper: Kazama is very no-nonsense. Considering the rest of the cast, this goes about as well as expected.
* HeroWorshipper: Of Shawn Conecone, who saved his life as a child. So far he is the only teacher whose class he consistently attends.
* HiddenDepths: He cooks both for himself and Noe, as his parents are frequently busy with work.
* ImagineSpotting: He has the uncanny ability to criticize ''other people's'' memory/fantasy scenes.
* {{Japanese Delinquent|s}}: He's suppose to be one, but, as everyone points out, he's much more noble than your typical delinquent.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Leaning on a pretty NiceGuy with a fairly convincing JerkassFacade. He's brash, disrespectful, and can be a bully because he can; that said, he's actually a good friend, classmate, clubmate and brother, as shown when he agreed to join the Game Development Club (temp) to help Roka fulfill her dreams, defended Takao before a PTA meet after the "zipper-launcher" incident, and treats the otherwise beleaguered Funabori with kindness. Such actions as these end up winning their affection.
* LargeHam: It comes with being voiced by [[Creator/KatsuyukiKonishi the same guy]] who gave the world [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina]]. It’s not how he usually acts, but the sheer absurdity around him on a daily basis results in him ''always yelling at everything! '''Almost all the time!!!''''' This becomes more prevalent as the series goes on.
* LaserGuidedKarma: PlayedForLaughs -- this is how he was forced to join the Game Development Club (temp) in the first place.
* MediumAwareness
* MetaGuy: Kazama is fully aware that the situations he finds himself in are ''very'' abnormal.
* MistakenForGay: Due to Roka's miswording, his mom thought he was in a relationship with Ataru. In the same chapter, she got further confused and thought he was [[BrotherSisterIncest dating Noe]].
* NobodyCallsMeChicken: Despite wanting to have nothing to do with his club's crazy antics, he can be duped into joining the show this way.
* NoIndoorVoice: Due to his constant punchlines. It gets lampshaded too, with some characters telling him he's too loud.
* OnlySaneMan: Pity him.
** NotSoAboveItAll: The best example of this is during the TournamentArc.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: He's the most "normal" character in the series, and tends to draw the least attention amongst his peers.
* PerpetualFrowner: He wears a cynical frown most of the time, though he can smile when he wants to.
* PetTheDog: After Noe's visit to his club ended with a series of misunderstandings that made her run off crying, he buys his little sister an expensive tub of ice cream.
* RatedMForManly: A parody of this trope.
* RidiculouslyAverageGuy: Comes with being the OnlySaneMan, apparently. It becomes a plot point later on, as he attempts to find a way to make himself stand out.
* SecondYearProtagonist
* ShonenHair[=/=]SpikyHair: And it’s actually sharp and jabs anyone who touches it. It seems to be naturally like that too, and is apparently [[ItRunsInTheFamily a trait shared with both Noe and their mother]]. In fact, people mostly recognize him through this -- one time he took a bath, he left his hair flat, and no one else is able to tell it's him.
* SpiritedCompetitor: Despite his complaining, Kazama loves a good challenge.
* StockholmSyndrome: Eventually develops something like this towards the Game Development Club (temp).
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Ataru and the other members of the club.
* WouldHitAGirl: Zigzagged; he seems to have no problem in fighting girls, but seems to have trouble picking fights with his club members, most probably because one of them [[StudentCouncilPresident has the political clout to legally kick his ass on her whim]].

!!Roka Shibasaki
->''"Welcome to the Game Development Club."''
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/KanaHanazawa

The short, quirky founder and captain of the Game Development Club (temp). She used to be a member of the real Game Development Club, but she didn't get along with the rest of its members, so she started her own.
* ActionGirl: She's surprisingly physically capable and is a powerful fighter in her own humorous right.
* {{Adorkable}}: The very core of her character. Everything that Roka does is adorably dorky.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: The reason why she left the real Game Development Club.
* BadassAdorable: Her hidden Dark-type is to be feared.
* BagOfKidnapping: Her WeaponOfChoice. It’s usually a OneHitKill and is her main attack, but she’s used it for kidnapping too.
* CastingAShadow: Her actual “element” is darkness. That is, putting a sack over people’s heads so they can’t see anything.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Does not like Kazama spending time with other girls.
* CuteAndPsycho: It shows through TranquilFury.
* TheDreaded: PlayedForLaughs -- everyone seems to know that she is the "secret boss of the school", and they are scared shitless of her.
* ExpressiveHair: Her GirlishPigtails wiggle in response to her emotions.
* {{Kawaiiko}}: Her frequent method of trying to convince people to do her favors.
* KillerRabbit: She looks cute, but only until she unleashes her Dark-type.
* {{Moe}}: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] with her “Moe-Moe Attack”. It doesn’t work on Kazama at all.
* [[NoGuyWantsToBeChased No Girl Wants to Be Chased]]: Dislikes Hachi and his frequent overtures to her. There's a reason she considers Kenji the fourth member required to legitimize her club.
* OlderThanSheLooks: She looks a lot younger than she really is, with her little sister [[BigLittleBrother looking a few years older than her]].
* OneHitKill: To be bagged by Roka is synonymous with certain defeat.
* OpenSecret: Almost everyone in Fujou Academy knows she is the "Secret Boss" of the school, though it never goes farther than mere whispers.
* PlayingWithFire: Her "elemental" motif is fire. It’s actually darkness, though she still sticks with the whole fire theme.
* RageQuit: Does this to Kazama and Takao after trying to bend the rules when losing against them in "rock-paper-scissors".
* RealityEnsues: Roka manages to save Kazama from falling out of a window and makes an impressive speech about how she wants him in her club, only to quickly realize she does not have the strength to pull him back up, let alone keep her grip on him for much longer.
* SecondYearProtagonist
* StartMyOwn: Started the Game Development Club after a falling-out with the real deal, with some help from Chitose (in terms of manpower, as well as [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem political]] and [[JapaneseDelinquents physical]] power).
* SuperDeformed: Frequently drawn as this.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Not exactly supernatural but her brown eyes turn gold, whenever she unleashes her "dark" element.
* SuperMode: Played with; whenever her "dark side' is unleashed her eyes turn [[SupernaturalGoldEyes gold]], her [[PowerMakesYourVoiceDeep voice deepens]] and [[PowerEchoes reverberates]].
* SuperSpeed: She seems to be the fastest member of the Game Development Club, outpacing Kazama with ease, and able to unleash her bag technique near-instantaneously.
* TokenMiniMoe: She’s a parody of this kind of character. At 143cm, she is even smaller than Noe, the shortest of the named freshmen at 152cm.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The girly girl to Tsutsuji's (slight) tomboy.

!!Chitose Karasuyama
->''"[[Manga/{{Doraemon}} Everything I own is mine! Everything of his that I want is mine as well!]]"''
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/ChiwaSaito

Co-founder of the Game Development Club (temp) with her best friend Roka. She is also the student council president. And a delinquent.
* ActionGirl: Chitose is a ruthless brawler.
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: Chitose is extremely arrogant and authoritative, generally looking down on the boys and walking all over them.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: The Student Council President, and an extremely powerful fighter.
* {{Badass}}: She once threw a guy through a door, then proceeded to pick up said door and beat another guy with it.
* BadBoss: To the Student Council, as she is willing to use them for her own agenda, and has said that their possessions are hers. She picks on Ataru the most.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: She maintains her status as Student Council President in spite of her delinquent behavior, abuse of the rest of the council, and her crude demeanor in general.
* CoolBigSis: To Roka back when they were children.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DeclarationOfProtection: Made this vow for Roka back when they were children [[spoiler:after putting Tama to task for destroying a sand castle they were making]].
* DishingOutDirt: Earth is her "elemental" motif, evidenced by her habit of throwing punches (which she also claims to be earth-"elemental") and hurling dirt on people, as well as her fondness for sand castles.
* DisproportionateRetribution: She apparently did this to the Real Game Development Club when they started treating Roka unfairly (an image implies [[HeroicComedicSociopath she attacked them with a shovel]] [[BuriedAlive and buried them up to their necks]]).
* TheGadfly: Among other things, she deliberately tried to feed a starved Kazama a string bean she dropped on the floor.
* {{Guile Hero}}ine[=/=]{{Manipulative B|astard}}itch: Zigzagged, depending on her intentions and viewpoint.
* HeroicComedicSociopath: Her gross abuse of others is always painted in a humorous light.
* HiddenDepths: She can actually cook pretty well, given that she had to for herself and her older sister, who can't cook half as decently as her.
* HighSchoolHustler: Because she's the StudentCouncilPresident, she can bend the entire school to her will and get anything done in a jiffy.
* HugeSchoolgirl: At 170cm she's the tallest girl in the Game Development Club (temp); only Kenji, at 175cm, is taller.
* {{Japanese Delinquent|s}}: The reason she's even the StudentCouncilPresident is apparently because she beat everyone else up.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Leaning on a total {{Jerkass}} with a well-concealed HiddenHeartOfGold. High-horsed and manipulative she certainly is, but everything she does, for better or worse, is always for the sake of Roka (best shown in her confession to Takao during the SchoolFestival), and occasionally she shows signs that she's not really as bad as she makes herself look like.
* [[KnightTemplarBigBrother Knight Templar Big Sister]]: To Roka in a surrogate way -- harm her (physically or emotionally), and she will do anything in her power to lay down the pain on you. [[spoiler:Tama was foolish enough to try, and thus became the very first victim of Chitose's "live burials".]]
* PetTheDog: Roka is (mostly) the only person who she ever shows any semblance of kindness, though there are a few exceptions. At the end of the SchoolFestival she comforts a crying Takao after losing their bet, telling her that she doesn't care for winning, so long as Roka keeps her club. In a rare moment of honesty she even apologizes for her angry outburst that nearly destroyed Takao's club last year when she learned what they were doing to Roka, admitting that she let her wrath get the better of her back then.
* PlayboyBunny: Dressed up as one during the school festival to attract people to the club's games.
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: More than happy to bend school laws (and create some of her own, or at least a LoopholeAbuse or two) to suit her needs as well as that of her club.
* SecondYearProtagonist
* ShesGotLegs: A lot of focus is drawn to her legs, and she is one of the few characters to have ZettaiRyouiki.
* StudentCouncilPresident: Inexplicably.
* SuperStrength: Was able to lift a gym locker without any difficulty.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: So sweet Kazama refused to believe it, but yes, there was a time when Chitose was anything but a bully -- not until she needed to look like one to [[spoiler:protect Roka from the likes of Tama]].
* WeaponOfChoice: A handful of dirt.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]: Perhaps as a reference to how PurpleIsPowerful. Chitose is the Student Council President, and one of the Game Club's stronger members.
** CurtainsMatchTheWindows: Her eyes are similarly purple.
* ZettaiRyouiki: She wears black thigh-high stockings.

!!Sakura Mizukami
->''"I'm Sakura Mizukami from class 1-D! I'm a Water Type!"''
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/MikakoTakahashi

A seemingly tomboyish, carefree freshman and the youngest member of the Club.
* BigBrotherWorship: A possible way to interpret her feelings for Kazama, as she always claims he is her big brother. Much to the annoyance of Noe, his real little sister.
* BrilliantButLazy: Apparently smarter than she lets on. She just doesn't like working hard.
* BrutalHonesty: She always says exactly what's on her mind, and always in her usual cheerful manner.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* CuteAndPsycho: Her psychotic episodes don’t happen as often as Roka’s, but are a bit creepier. It shows up through speaking {{Keigo}} in a CreepyMonotone, HiddenEyes, and sometimes a CheshireCatGrin.
* DemotedToExtra: In the anime adaptation, she might as well be one of the nameless extras for all she does.
* DitzyGenius: Definitely ditzy and [[InformedAttribute supposedly]] [[BrilliantButLazy a genius]].
* GenkiGirl: She's always upbeat and happy, almost disturbingly so.
* MakingASplash: Water is her "elemental" motif, evidenced by her almost always carrying around a water bottle.
* MessyHair: Her tomboyish-looking hair is actually a case of bed hair that she is too lazy to straighten.
* OddFriendship: With Noe, a fellow first-year and her self-declared "rival" for Kenji's little sister.
* PerpetualSmiler
* RoseHairedSweetie: True to her hair color, Sakura is one of the club's nicer, friendlier members.
* {{Tomboy}}
* TomboyishSideTails
* WeaponOfChoice: A water bottle.

!!Minami Oosawa
->''"You just stepped outside the boundary of what was acceptable in this school." (Lights stun gun)''
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/AmiKoshimizu

Homeroom teacher of Class 2-D and "advisor" of the Game Development Club (temp).
* ApatheticTeacher: Perhaps the only reason she's even signed up for the Game Development Club (temp) is to find a room to slack away the day.
* AsleepInClass: Keep in mind that ''she’s a teacher''.
** {{Sleepyhead}}: She’s almost always sleeping.
* CoolTeacher: She covers for some of the fights Kazama gets into.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* OlderThanTheyLook: While her age isn’t specified, she looks no older than her students.
* OneOfTheKids: Most apparent when Kazama initially had no idea she was a teacher due to her behavior.
* SenseiChan: Her behavior and appearance are hardly any different from her students.
* ShockAndAwe: Her "elemental" motif, on account of always keeping a {{stun gun|s}} on hand.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: She does.

!!Hachi Shiou
->''"Oh sorry! Apparently I like cramped, confined spaces."''
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KoukiMiyata

The other boy in the club who is quite infatuated with Roka. Rich and handsome, making him popular amongst girls. He stands in the corner, behind the bookcase.
* AbhorrentAdmirer: To Roka.
* BishieSparkle: He sparkles like a diamond anytime he has something to say.
* {{Bishonen}}: Something of an InformedAttractiveness. His [[BishieSparkle sparkles]] imply that he is supposed to be one of the better looking guys.
* TheChewToy: He's a pretty decent guy, but unfortunate, painful things just keep happening to him.
* ChickMagnet: Shown in his introduction in Episode 6 of the anime to be pretty popular with the girls, save Roka (who utterly fears him) and Funabori (who thinks he isn't her type).
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Zigzagged. On one hand, Roka tries to block him out of her head and keep him in the dark concerning club activities ([[AbhorrentAdmirer with good reason]]), and even Kenji finds him creepy. On the other hand, Kenji's friends immediately took a liking to him (because he bribed them) and now they're almost always together.
* LightEmUp: Because of his frequent tendency to emit a BishieSparkle, Hachi is implied to have a light-"elemental" motif.
* PerpetualSmiler: He's always in a good mood. It is actually really creepy.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: Where Chitose uses [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem political clout]], Shiou uses wealth to get by, such as ingratiating himself into the Kazama Gang (their leader's opinion be damned; it also helps that he and Ataru [[TooKinkyToTorture are pretty much alike]]).
* TheTeamWannabe: Considers the Kazama Gang his "friends" and follows them around a lot. Kazama refuses to acknowledge him.
* TooKinkyToTorture: The idea of being subjected to Roka's bags excites him.

[[folder:The '''Real''' Game Development Club]]
!The Real Game Development Club
Tropes shared by the club in general:
* PutOnABus: Takao tags along with the Game Development Club (temp)’s CastHerd for the most part, so the other members stopped being relevant after the first few chapters, although Inada will show up occasionally.
** A very brief and offhand reference was made to Sakuragaoka in chapter 44.

->''"Curse you, fake Game Development Club!"''
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/ShizukaIto

President of the real Game Development Club and an old friend of Roka. While appearing elegant and dignified among her schoolmates, the rest of Roka's club see her as nothing more but a big-breasted, easily-intimidated crybaby who is nevertheless an important friend still.
* {{Adorkable}}: Everything that she does that involves Kazama.
* ButtMonkey: Always the target of the Game Development Club (temp)'s antics and mockery, on account of her [[GagBoobs oversized chest]].
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Has shown hints of this [[spoiler:in Chapter 31]].
* CryCute: PlayedForLaughs after Chitose forced her to admit defeat on their bet to see which of their booths during the SchoolFestival would attract the most visitors, and again when Kenji unwittingly reminded her of her loss.
* TheDitz: She's rather slow on the uptake and often acts faster than she thinks.
* GagBoobs: Her “milk tanks”, which are frequently subject to lots of jokes, can be [[ImprovisedWeapon quite dangerous...]]
* {{Gainaxing}}: ...and in the anime they're quite prone to bouncing and squishing.
* GamerChick: Has a deep and abiding passion for games, and given the choice will go for a rare console or game rather than new clothes. (While she did end up taking Kenji to a ''Magical Village'' release for a date, that was more because she realised she'd double-booked the date with the release, and didn't have the courage to reschedule.)
* GenerationXerox[=/=]YoungestChildWins: She's the youngest of three sisters, and she clearly inherited their mother's looks, sizable chest and [[spoiler:power]], much to the displeasure of her two older sisters.
* HairDecorations: Has a hairband and a ribbon in her braid.
* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey: She doesn’t actually invoke this, but this trope has been {{discussed|Trope}} on several occasions.
* LastNameBasis: Takao is her family name. Her first name has never been revealed.
* LuminescentBlush: She blushes fiercely anytime she is embarrassed, which happens frequently.
* MistakenForBadass: Due to [[PoorCommunicationKills miscommunication]], Noe is absolutely terrified of her.
* NumberOneDime: Her cellphone strap, which she treasures because Kenji got it for her along with a game she wanted. If she loses it, she'll go to almost any lengths to get it back.
* ReluctantFanserviceGirl: Plenty of fanservice is had at Takao's expense.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender
* {{Tsundere}}: Initally Type A for Kenji, but drops the tsun completely as time goes on.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Roka.
* WardrobeMalfunction: During the TournamentArc, she tried to zip her tracksuit to avoid embarrassment. Because [[GagBoobs her chest is too big for the jacket]], the zipper inevitably snapped, sending the pull tab flying toward Kenji and accidentally knocking him out. That incident actually caused a mini-scandal, as concerned parents thought the PE suits are dangerous (when actually, it's just her breasts' fault).

!!Tsutsumi Inada
->''"In other words, you'd like to do ''that'' to the President's chest?"''
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/MegumiToyoguchi

The very, ''very'' perverted vice-president of the real Game Development Club. Apparently a freshman, like the other Game Development Club members. One of the more... "hotblooded" characters in the series.
* ActionDuo: A subtle one, with Chitose. In the spirit of [[CombatCommentator combat commentating]] and [[CovertPervert indulging in the wonders of Takao's bust.]]
* CombatCommentator: During the tournament, with Chitose. Needless to say, she really does her job [[NoIndoorVoice well]].
* HotBlooded: Gets really pumped up over trivial (and perverted) things, sometimes flying into a rage that fits half the page.
* LargeHam: See above.
* LovableSexManiac: Gets to the point where one could say it's all she lives for. The only other being in the series who could be on the same level of lechery as her is probably [[CovertPervert Chitose]].
* LuminescentBlush: Which is often inexplicably combined with CrossPoppingVeins.
* {{Meganekko}}: An example of the "smart-looking-yet-perverted" category.
* NoIndoorVoice: Most of her dialogue consists of overly dramatic shouts, be it for sheer joy or irritation.
* {{Nosebleed}}: Every time fellow club-member [[DudeLooksLikeALady Sakuragaoka]] does something moe (read: incredibly unmanly).

->''"D-do you think I'm still a guy after seeing this?"''
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/RyokoShiraishi

A very pretty, extremely effeminate boy who gets put in skirts a lot.
* AttractiveBentGender: Probably his only point in existence.
* ButtMonkey: Like any other trap character, he gets subjected to wearing girly and cute outfits, such as a maid uniform and a fairy nurse.
* DisguisedInDrag: Any time Kazama is around. One time he even had to make a dash to the bathroom just to get into disguise when Kazama made eye contact with him in their clubroom.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Even sounds like one.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Averted -- Kazama apparently still thinks that he is a girl.

->'''Voiced by''': Takahiro Fujiwara

A giant and intimidating-looking boy. Actually one of the nicest and weakest characters in the entire series.
* ButtMonkey: If Yamada shows up, chances are he's not about to have a nice day.
* CreepyCrossdresser: And Kenji considers the sight of him in a girly dress the pinnacle of FanDisservice.
* FaceOfAThug: Has a rather intimidating appearance, but doesn't harm a fly.
* FallGuy: In Episode 2, someone alerted the police of a group of people in masked cloaks surrounding a man (it's actually the real Game Development Club in disguise, pressuring Kenji to leave Roka's Game Development Club). When the cops came, only Yamada, knocked unconscious by Kenji on reflex upon [[FanDisservice seeing him in drag]], remained unchanged, and thus was taken by the cops.
-->'''Kenji, Takao and Tsutsumi:''' "We're very sorry, Yamada-kun..."
* GentleGiant: Tsutsumi describes him as a "timid pacifist".
* PaperTiger: He's the biggest, burliest guy, but he is incapable of hurting a fly.

[[folder:The Kazama Gang]]
!The Kazama Gang
Tropes shared by the Kazama Gang in general:
* ChildhoodFriends
* TheDreaded: Apparently the most infamous delinquent gang in the school at the beginning of the story. [[SubvertedTrope However]], due to Kazama’s connection with the Game Development Club (temp), [[DudeWheresMyRespect people eventually just think they’re Chitose’s lackeys]].
* JapaneseDelinquents: As is typical for a gang in a manga…
* [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Jerks With Hearts of Gold]]: They're all nice guys, and do very little harm despite garnering bad reputations.
* ThreePlusTwo: Kazama, Nagayama, and Yokoshima + Ataru and [[TheTeamWannabe ...Shiou?]]
* TrueCompanions: The sheer loyalty they have for one another is surprisingly beautiful.

!!Kenji Kazama
->''See: The Game Deleopment Club (temp)''

!!Ataru Kawahara
->Voiced by: Creator/JunFukuyama

Student Council Vice-President and one of Kazama’s friends. While he openly disparages the kind of lifestyle Kenji leads, in private he is more or less an honorary member of his gang, and aspires to usurp Chitose’s presidency. Also a helpless, hardcore, self-certified masochist.
* AlwaysSecondBest: To Chitose.
* AmbiguouslyBi: While finding Chitose's abuse "irresistible", he acts suspiciously too intimate to Kazama, much to the latter's displeasure.
* ChewToy[=/=]IronButtMonkey: And he ''loves'' the abuse!
* HotBlooded: Another guy who [[NoIndoorVoice likes to do and say overly-dramatic things]].
* TheLancer: To Kazama, sort of. Might even be a parody.
* LargeHam: Complemented by a bombastic voice worthy of [[Anime/CodeGeass Lelouch]] (both of whom are voiced by [[Creator/JunFukuyama the same guy]]).
* LovableCoward: Thinks nothing of leaving his comrade and fleeing the battlefield, as he says he just gathers "intel".
* ScaryShinyGlasses: Shines whenever he gets especially excited.
* SitcomArchNemesis: Chitose. Ends up as her lackey anyway.
* SixthRanger: To the Kazama Gang. Despite disapproving Kenji's entire gang-delinquent lifestyle.
* TheStarscream: To Chitose, or so he aspires. At least he makes for a decent footstool.
* TooKinkyToTorture: Despite publicly stating that he absolutely loathes Chitose's guts, he seems to enjoy any kind of abuse she hurls on him.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Kazama. While they both find each other hard to stand at times, they're still best buds, with much of it coming from Ataru. Maybe too much.
** ChildhoodFriends: With the Kazama gang.

!!Hiroshi Nagayama
->'''Voiced by:''' Kenichirou Matsuda

Part of Kazama’s posse. He is very tall, but doesn’t stand out all that much.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: In the anime and in color artwork. Unusually for this trope, his skin tone's no different from the rest of the cast in standard black & white manga art.
* CoolShades: Never leaves home without them.
* {{Expy}}: Looks like a shaven [[Manga/SchoolRumble Kenji Harima]] with slicked-back hair.
* TheStoic: The amount of times he has shown strong emotions can be counted on one hand.
* SunglassesAtNight: All day, every day, apparently.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Yokoshima.
** BigGuyLittleGuy: Big to Yokoshima's small.
** FatAndSkinny: Skinny to Yokoshima’s fat.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: He looks more like a {{Yakuza}} than a second-year high school student.

->'''Voiced by:''' Hiroki Gotou

The second half of Kazama’s posse. He is very short and fat.
* BigEater: The reason for his supposed weight.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: PlayedForLaughs. Although it has been played straight at least once (he’s the one who suggested bullying the Game Development Club (temp) at the beginning of the story).
* DelinquentHair: ''Three'' mohawks.
* EyesAlwaysShut
* FaceOfAThug: And he still has the most non-threatening face ever.
* {{Gonk}}: His shortness and weight are so exaggerated that he simply appears as a little pudgy dude who only reaches Kazama's waist.
* PerpetualSmiler: For a "delinquent," Yokoshima is always cheerful.
* StoutStrength: Strangely, despite his dwarf size, he is still treated like he weighs the most in Kazama's group and is also the strongest.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Nagayama.
** BigGuyLittleGuy: Small to Nagayama's big
** FatAndSkinny: Fat to Nagayama’s skinny.

!!Shawn Conecone
->''"Ah, such are youth. Both of you [Kenji and Takao], enjoy life while you're still young."''
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/JojiNakata

The very dandy second year classical literature teacher. Kazama genuinely looks up to and respects him. He’s also an archaeologist who fights crime.
* AdventureArchaeologist: See ShoutOut below.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBeard
** BadassGrandpa
** BadassTeacher: His is the only class Kazama diligently attends out of respect.
** MemeticBadass: An InUniverse example.
* BigDamnHeroes: This is just what he does. Also his EstablishingCharacterMoment.
* CoolOldGuy: Everything he does garners awe and respect from his students.
* CoolTeacher: When he sees Kazama hasn't had time to eat lunch, he gives him a five-minutes break to eat in the dandiest manner possible.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He's more or less patterned after Creator/SeanConnery.
* PhraseCatcher:
-->“So dandy!”
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
* ShoutOut: Many of his scenes evoke Franchise/IndianaJones, but there have been some moments ripped off Franchise/JamesBond, too.
* WhipItGood

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AkiToyosaki

A soft-spoken girl in Kenji’s class. She is well-known for her cooking skills and is popular among the guys.
* {{Adorkable}}: Her whole purpose is to react to Kazama's situations by being a big awkward mess.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: The roots of her affection for Kenji.
* ButtMonkey: And surprisingly so. Because she's such a perfect wife, she gets caught up in the Game Development Club's antics, screwed with by everyone who isn't Kenji, and even gets yelled at for trying to be nice. In addition, every time she shows favor towards Kenji, every other guy in the class surrounds her and causes a ruckus, to the point where she's even forced to bandage everyone's shoulders when they aren't even hurt.
* TheCutie: Her shtick.
* GirlishPigtails
* LastNameBasis: Like Takao, Funabori is only known by her last name.
* LuminescentBlush: In spades.
* {{Meta G|uy}}irl: Not as often as Kenji, but she still counts.
* NiceGirl: Not a mean bone in her body. She even comes to class early to tidy up the room and water the plants.
* ParodySue: She's sweet, considerate, and skilled at household chores. Whatever angle you look at her, she makes for the perfect housewife. And all she gets for her trouble is being constantly inconvenienced by her admirers and having to bear with the general insanity of her schoolmates.
* ShrinkingViolet: She has shades of this.
* ShyBlueHairedGirl: Too much attention can upset her and she can get frightened easily.
* SupremeChef
* YamatoNadeshiko: Characters have even remarked on how good a wife she would be.

!!Noe Kazama
->''"Quit playing guessing games with my hair! You wanna know how much of a complex I have over how spiky it is?!"''
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/EmiriKatou

Kenji’s younger sister and a tenth-grader at Fujou Academy.
* BerserkButton: Mentioning how her hair is spiky, let alone making fun of it.
* BigBrotherWorship: A reasonable example. While at school they don't interact much with each other, in private she is pretty close with Kenji and makes his lunches. She is annoyed when Sakura acts like Kazama is her brother as well. And when really hurt, she does call him "onii-chan".
* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine: She's a tsukkomi, just like her brother. The girls take this trait as confirmation that she is indeed Kenji's sibling.
* CryCute: PlayedForLaughs whenever she mistakes Takao's actions for bullying.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Episode 9 of the anime spent two-thirds of its airtime devoted to her visit to her brother's club (and a hilariously bad first impression of Takao).
* {{Determinator}}: Not as much as Kenji, but still she hates to lose as well.
* AnIcePerson: Her "elemental" motif as attributed to her by Roka, due to her love of ice cream.
* ItRunsInTheFamily: Her similarities to Kenji (and their mother) are lampshaded frequently. Specifically [[HereditaryHairstyle their hair]], their [[BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine punchlines]], and their determination to win.
* JapaneseSiblingTerminology: She calls her brother “aniki”, but will call him "onii-chan" when upset.
* OddFriendship: With Sakura, a fellow first year. While she often expresses annoyance at the latter's attempts to treat Kenji like her older brother, they actually get along pretty well.
* OnlySaneMan: Like her brother.
** NotSoAboveItAll: Also like her brother.
* SpikyHair: How the club realized Kenji was her brother.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Ice cream.
* [[WhyDidItHaveTobeSnakes Why Did It Have to Be Takao-senpai?]]: After a string of misunderstandings and bad luck, Noe is terrified of Takao.

!!Tama Sakai
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KanaUeda

A pigtailed third-year and Chitose's predecessor as Student Council President.
* ArcVillain: During the Former Student Council arc.
* BrickJoke: Yes, Tama is the same "Tama-chan" whose money Kazama found.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Becomes more or less a recurring character who takes a shine to the Game Development Club (temp) after her defeat.
* DisproportionateRetribution: As revenge for losing her position to Chitose, Tama targets the latter's club for disbandment, challenging them with a "steal the other team's cellphones" game.
* DropInCharacter: Occasionally makes appearances after Kenji and Roka defeat her.
* EmotionlessGirl: There's something... off about her. Tama normally does not express strong emotions and blankly stares ahead with wide eyes.
* {{Fetish}}: Being called "cute". [[spoiler:It ultimately becomes [[AchillesHeel her undoing]], when Kenji exploits it to compliment her on how better she would look without pigtails, fazing her long enough for Roka to swoop in with head-bag in hand.]]
* GirlishPigtails: Actually wears this to counteract Roka's head-bag.
* HugeSchoolgirl: Officially the tallest female among the named cast, standing at 181 cm. For comparison, Chitose is only 11 centimeters shorter.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Claims that her crusade to shut down the Game Development Club (temp) is to avenge the students "volunteered" by Chitose to build her entertainment booth during the SchoolFestival. Except [[NotSoDifferent Tama cannot claim moral superiority any more than Chitose herself can]].
* SchoolyardBullyAllGrownUp: [[spoiler:As a child she'd been bullying the kids in the local playground, and not even a firsthand experience of Chitose's wrath fazed her one bit -- if anything, it only made her hate Chitose even more, to the point of actually thinking up ways to counteract anything she (or Roka) could think of.]]
* StudentCouncilPresident: The previous one.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: At first, but she gets friendlier. Somewhat.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/EriSendai

The former Student Council Secretary, with a nasty habit of vomiting a lot.
* AmbiguousDisorder: Her continuous vomiting can hardly be considered normal.
* ButtMonkey: Shinsen is never treated as anything more than a minor inconvenience, and she gets zero respect from everyone, even her fellow former Student Council members.
* EmbarrassingNickname: "Barfy"
* FieryRedHead: She gets upset easily and is very passionate despite her status as the local ButtMonkey.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: We don't get to see her hurl her guts out in the manga; we only hear the sound of it.
** WaterfallPuke: In the anime, it takes the form of colorful flowers.
* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: Frequently appears trying out all sorts of part-time careers, and, as of the Hashimoto arc, has appeared as far away as Hashimoto Island.

->''"Onii-chan will do his best to fight fair and square!"''
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AkiraIshida‎

The former Student Council Vice-President. Hardcore otaku, boasts about watching anime that air late at midnight, and constantly keeps his eyes near-shut, no matter the situation.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Turned into a joke in his case, as he immediately changed his idea of taking Sakura 2-on-1 after she told him that "Naganuma-oniichan would never do something that dirty". His reaction? Charging towards a retreating Kazama and Roka while loudly proclaiming "onii-chan's will to fight fair and square".
* CutenessOverload: Whenever he hears [[Creator/MikakoTakahashi Sakura]] and [[Creator/KanaHanazawa Roka]] talking. He breaks down shortly after.
* EyesAlwaysShut‎: His defining character trait. Claimed to be caused by fatigue, and so that the teachers don't catch him sleeping in class.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: When he decided to open his eyes in his "battle" against Kazama. [[ It's regrettably hilarious.]]
* IAmNotLeftHanded: He opens his eyes when he's ready to be serious. Subverted in that it hardly improves anything.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: He notices that [[Creator/MikakoTakahashi Sakura]] and [[Creator/KanaHanazawa Roka]] sound like [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall seiyuus]].
* LetsGetDangerous: ...Only to turn into a moe-struck idiot again shortly after hearing [[Creator/KanaHanazawa Roka]]'s voice.
* TheOneGuy: The only male member of the former Student Council.
* {{Otaku}}: His source of power, as well as the cause for his pathetic loss in the minigame.

!!Tsutsuji Shibasaki
->''"And so, I'll have you quit the club once and for all!"''

Roka's younger sister, a first-year at Higashifuge Academy, and herself a member of its game development club.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: How Roka treats her. Even Kenji agrees that Tsutsuji doesn't make for good little sister material.
* [[BigBrotherWorship Big Sister Worship]]: Adores Roka a lot. She doesn't repay the fangirling. Even Kenji correctly guesses that she's the kind of person who'd prepare Roka a bento with the words "I Love Onee-chan" on it.
* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine: Her introductory chapter has her spouting a rapid stream of retorts to ''[[OnlySaneMan Kenji]]'''s remarks, of all the available people in this series. [[ The Kazama Gang even acknowledge it.]]
* BookDumb: Kusshi-senpai implies that she keeps failing to get into Fujou and join Roka because both of her procrastination and frequently being distracted by Roka's activities.
* CryCute: PlayedForLaughs whenever she thinks her sister's club activities are beginning to take a toll on their sisterly relationship, and again while whining that she doesn't want Kenji for a substitute older sibling (and that is after she ''herself'' did so as a retort to Roka "disowning" her and putting Noe in her place).
* MySisterIsOffLimits: Dislikes anyone she thinks is consuming Roka's time, particularly Kenji, who Roka keeps talking about all the time, even at home.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The (slight) tomboy to Roka's girly girl.
* TomboyishPonytail: Wears one on the left side of her head, though she tries to emulate Roka by adding a smaller one on the right side.
* YoungerThanSheLooks: Not only does she look older than Roka, but she also looks older than a tenth-grader.

->''"You'd better go home. It'd be rude to the kids who are playing seriously."''

A third-year and veritable source of information. One of the most dependable and caring characters in the series, she's regarded as a "big sister" figure to all of Fujou High, despite her [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking scary face and side ponytail]].
* CoolBigSis: What the entire school sees her as.
* {{Gonk}}: Not in the usual sense, as her defining feature is a CheshireCatGrin and overly slanted eyes. Everyone refers to it as "scary".
* InSeriesNickname: "Kusshi-senpai"
* {{Moe}}: {{Invoked|Trope}} by her schoolmates, who claim she has a "cute" side to her, which makes her popular with guys. Even [[ Kenji agrees]].
* [[MrExposition Ms. Exposition]]: The only character in the series whose words aren't guaranteed to be 100% bullshit.
* PetitePride: According to her, she'd be ranked below a hundred in the school. Not that she minds, though.
* PunchCatch: Does one in chapter 44, against a [[ raging Tsutsuji]]. She [[ScaryFlashlightFace reduced]] her to a crying wreck shortly afterwards, albeit unintentionally.
* TheReliableOne: Looks aside, she is famous for her dependable nature.
* ScaryFlashlightFace: What her default facial expression looks like most of the time. Complete with emphasized shading on the upper half of her face.
* TherapyBackfire: Her attempt at getting [[BigBreastPride Saginuma]] to return back to school after having her former 1st-place title of "Biggest Breasts in School" stripped by [[GagBoobs Takao]]... It didn't end favorably (with Saginuma being completely brushed off and Kusshi herself fainting due to working too hard for it.)
* TomboyishPonytail: Wears one on the right side of her head.
