[[folder:Mao]]
!!Mao
!!!Voiced by: HiromiHirata (JP), Creator/VicMignogna (EN)
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mao5345252345_2769.png]]
->A demon "Honor Student" out to kill his father and take his place as Overlord. Reading far too much manga for his own good, he concludes that the best way to do this is to become the Hero, because [[InvincibleHero heroes always kick Overlord ass]].

Tropes associated with Mao:
* AccidentalInnuendo:[[invoked]] An unintentional master of this, whether it's panting heavily and literally drooling over the developments in Almaz's body, demanding for Almaz to teach him about love, or telling Beryl's GirlPosse: "I'm not interested in praise. Reward me with something physical." See also MemeticMolester.
* AnIcePerson: His primary element.
* AntiHero: He'd never admit it, but [[spoiler: he really does calm out a bit after the story. Of course, the interpretation varies from player to player. He'll drop an evil plan if his "friends" bug him enough about it.]]
* [[BadassBookworm Badass Otaku]]
* BigBad: of ''VisualNovel/DisgaeaInfinite''
* BlushSticker: Mao gets these then he is turned on.
* [[CantActPervertedTowardALoveInterest Can't Act Perverted Toward A Rival]]:
-->What are you doing here, Beryl? Are you trying to interrupt my research again? I'm about to conduct a physics experiment on skirt lifting. Get out of here.
* ClosetGeek: He is the closet about liking heroes, truth is he might be as big a fan of them as Almaz and Flonne, if not more.
* CoatCape
* CombatPragmatist: In the second fight against Raspberyl, it was implied he used Almaz as a shield.
* CruelMercy: The way he punishes Aurum in the normal ending.
* DepravedBisexual
* DitzyGenius
* EinsteinHair: As befits a DitzyGenius MadScientist.
* EnemyWithin: Dark Mao.
* [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas Even Bad Men Love Their Papas]]: No, really!
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Despite all his research, he doesn't ''get'' concepts like 'courage' and 'love'.
* EvilLaugh
* [[spoiler: FaceHeelTurn: In the worse ending.]]
* FantasticRacism: Towards Rutile.
* FingerPokeOfDoom: His uniques tend to show him tossing away his sword so he can blast the opponent with energy from his finger.
* ForScience!
* HumansAreBastards: [[spoiler: Due to Aurum.]]
* IceKing: His heart is literary as cold as ice.
* InsufferableGenius
* IReadItForTheArticles: Mao insists that his massive superhero comic book collection is ''purely'' for research purposes. Really.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Lampshaded by Sapphire in the Super Hero Mao ending.
** A really, really big jerk with a heart of gold. Several times in the game, we meet the embodiment of Mao's "True Heart," and he's basically what Mao would be if Mao were more mature and kind. The irritating jerkass Mao is entirely an affectation, a "surface".
* KickTheMoralityPet: In the worse ending [[spoiler: he mocks Almaz after he dies which is seen as an in universe MoralEventHorizon instead of him grieving making everyone turn his back on him. He then attacks them, but once Beryl is gone, he loses it.]]
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: Despite the regular insistence that [[IReadItForTheArticles he doesn't really like heroes and just collects video games and comic books for research]], the fact that he is a fan of Super Hero Aurum is a significant plot point. [[spoiler:Namely, when the hero dropped by 200 years ago asking for directions to the strongest Overlord in the area, Mao was happy to point him in the direction of his father and let slip his weak points for an autograph, not realizing that Aurum was actually going to ''kill'' his father ([[ThouShaltNotKill because heroes don't kill their opponents in cold blood, right?]])]].
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: He'll repeatedly mention his "1.8 Million E.Q." (evil quotient?) which is absolutely worthless for understanding basic concepts like love and truth and psychology and friendship. He makes mention of being able to turn people into giant robots or cyborgs but we never see him follow through on that, either.
** Though by the next game he has a HumongousMecha that [[spoiler:uses Aurum as a power source]].
* LargeHam
* LiteralSplitPersonality: The various Maos inside his own heart in Chapters 2 and 4.
* MadScientist
* MagicKnight: His highest aptitudes are ATK and INT, he can use both a sword and staff, and learns ice magic.
* {{Nerdgasm}}: [[{{Invoked}} To the point]] that it unsettles just about everyone that's not him.
-->'''Almaz:''' You need help in more ways than one.
* MemeticMolester: In an in-universe episode preview, Etna portrays him as a sexual-molesting pervert. He objects.
* NeverLiveItDown: In-universe, even after Almaz gains an actual hero title, Mao still calls him "Ex-Fake Hero".
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Mao has no compunctions against groping for the sake of science, as Almaz learned the hard way.
-->'''Almaz:''' I think I've just been violated.
* OddCouple: With Almaz at the beginning.
* OedipusComplex: [[spoiler: Due to Aurum's brainwashing.]]
* OneWingedAngel: Depending on how you interpret his final skill, Vasa Aergun, he's either summoning a giant demon or transforming into it.
* OminousPipeOrgan: "Fugue of Hell", Mao's {{leitmotif}}.
* {{Otaku}}: 4 million hours on a [[BlandNameProduct Slay Station Portable]] is pretty hardcore.
* PokeThePoodle: "...What? I only replaced all Stop signs with Yields, hid peoples' shoes, and prank called a few places at most."
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: 1578 years old.
* ScarsAreForever: Has a crescent-shaped scar on his forehead, which is obscured by his bangs, but can be seen in his SuperMovePortraitAttack and his character design notes. [[HarryPotter Can't imagine where they got that idea.]]
* ScaryShinyGlasses
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: Mao has this reaction to ''everything,'' not just Raspberyl. Any time he acts with a crumb of kindness or friendship, and someone else points it out, he throws a mini-tantrum about how he has no friends and he's never opened up his heart. See also IReadItForTheArticles, which is how he explains his love of superhero comics as mere "research."
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses
* [[spoiler:SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum]]: His reaction to [[spoiler:Raspberyl]]'s death in the bad ending.
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: Manifests briefly in chapter 5, fully manifests in the game's worst ending.
* TeenGenius: Even though he's ReallySevenHundredYearsOld, he's still a teenager by netherworld standards.
* ThoseWackyNazis: Saucy Mao, the personification of Mao's love of hot sauce. ItMakesSenseInContext.
* TightsUnderShorts
* TooKinkyToTorture: Mao's biggest disappointment upon learning that [[spoiler:his butler Geoffery has been experimenting on him while he's unconscious]] is that he wasn't awake to remember any of it...Well, the total breach of trust too, but mostly the former. When he confronts him about it, he demands ''video''.
* TortureTechnician: Comes natural with his love for experimenting and reconstructing his victims.
* {{Tsundere}}: Much like Laharl, if he does something good, he'll try to deny it.
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: His research has left him convinced that roughly 70% of a hero's power comes from 'Love', but he doesn't comprehend it at all.
* WhyDontYouMarryIt: The rest of the group is pretty convinced that Mao likes mad science in ''that'' sort of way. He doesn't exactly help his case against it.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: In the "Human World Ending", after each of his party members dies one by one, Mao finally loses it when [[spoiler: Super Hero Aurum kills Raspberyl.]]. After which, he effortless annihilates him and we are told he destroys the universe, and Mao is left all alone, floating in nothingness for all eternity.
* WrongGenreSavvy: In one bad endings
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Almaz von Almandine Adamant]]
!!Almaz von Almandine Adamant
!!!Voiced by: Creator/HiroShimono (JP), Creator/JohnnyYongBosch (EN)
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Almaz_943.png]]
->A guardsman in the human world who goes to the Netherworld to fight the overlord to protect the princess. Gets his title stolen and all sorts of bad stuff comes his way.

Tropes associated with Almaz:
* {{Adorkable}}
* AlliterativeName
** [[AwesomeMcCoolName Awesome [=McCool=] Name]]: Lampshaded
* AllLovingHero: Minus that [[WhattheHellHero one moment]] in chapter 4, Almaz fits the qualities of one. Kind and caring, always willing to help someone out even if he doesn't know them and is willing to see the good in people no matter how cruel they are. He was even willing to [[spoiler:stay with Mao and convince him to stop his plan in attacking the human world and depending on the ending depends on whether or not he is successful]].
* AntiHero: Type 1. Graduates to full hero by the end of the game.
* [[spoiler: BackFromTheDead: To get his hero title back was all it took.]]
* BadLiar: Ironically [[spoiler: he was able to lie about being okay concerning the curse he was infected with.]] Everything else sticks out like a sore thumb.
* TheChewToy: My god...this guy is unlucky. Taken to {{woobie}} levels especially in the Almaz ending.
* ClassicalAntihero
* CowardlyLion
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Gains considerable courage from Sapphire's presence.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Not so unusual in real life, but in the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' universe the color of his hair and eyes is as unusual as any other wacky color.
* CuteLittleFangs: Acquires these as he starts turning into a demon.
* TheCutie: A rare male version.
** [[spoiler: BreakTheCutie: The Almaz ending. Also a minor example near the end of the game when he finds out that his superhero isn't all that it seems.]]
** [[spoiler: KillTheCutie: Near the end of the game, he gets killed shortly after protecting Sapphire. Naturally,it doesn't last long. Only in the worse ending does he stay dead and it triggers a string of unfortunate events.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: In part because he's a [[TheChewToy chew toy]].
* DefinitelyJustACold: His excuse when he starts getting affected by his curse.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: Along with Mao, he undergoes his own CharacterDevelopment throughout the game and manages to, even in Mao's eyes, go from being a wanabee hero to a real one.
* TheEmpath: Becomes one as the game goes on.
* FingerlessGloves
* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: In ''[[VideoGame/Disgaea2CursedMemories Dark Hero Days]]'', Hanako apparently summons him from the future after [[spoiler: He and Sapphire are married]], and as a result the two have a 99% chance of pulling off a combo attack at all times.
* TheHeart: Functions as the member that keeps everyone together. [[spoiler: It shows in the worse ending where his death triggers everyone to turn on Mao because he refused to grieve for him.]]
* HeroicWannabe
* [[ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe I Can't Believe A Girl Like You Would Notice Me]]: His reaction to Sapphire's interest in him.
* IdiotHair
* [[spoiler: IncurableCoughOfDeath]]
* KarmicTransformation: Almaz eventually realizes that his transformation into a demon was one of these.
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: Almaz is a tremendous Super Hero Aurum fanboy, and admits to owning a tremendous amount of merchandise based on him. [[spoiler:Naturally, he has the most trouble out of the main characters in accepting that Aurum is really evil]].
* TheLancer
* LaserGuidedKarma: The cause of his example of ThrowTheDogABone and [[spoiler:RagsToRoyalty.]]
* MadeASlave: Mao's slave at that.
* ManInWhite: White uniform and very much genuinely good.
* MoralityPet: Not to the extent of Beryl but also serves as one to Mao [[spoiler: as shown in the worse ending where his death contributes part of Mao's FaceHeelTurn and turns everyone against Mao.]]
* [[spoiler: MyGodWhatHaveIDone: His reaction to what he does to Mao in chapter 4. Thinking he did a good thing by pulling the plug and shutting down his father inside of his heart, Almaz didn't realize that he mentally destroyed Mao in the process.]]
* NiceGuy: Oh so much.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: The Almaz ending.
* OddCouple: With Mao in the beginning, when it is just the two of them on the team.
* OnlySaneMan: To his chagrin, given what he's surrounded by.
* ThePowerOfTrust: He constantly talks about trust and friendship toward Mao. [[spoiler: Depending on the ending depends on if his talk about trust gets through.]]
* [[spoiler: RagsToRoyalty]]
* ScarfOfAsskicking: He kicks ass when he needs to.
* [[spoiler: SpannerInTheWorks: Because of Almaz' presence, the BigBad could not accomplish his goals of turning Mao into the perfect Overlord that he wanted him to be. Almaz is the reason that Mao opens his heart effectively ruining his plans to have Mao go to the dark side. This is the reason why Aurum wanted him dead the most, but Almaz managed to cheat death at the very end resulting in a VillainousBreakdown the beginning of chapter 8.]]
** [[spoiler: In a sense, Almaz is the very reason why Aurum fails to get everything he wants in multiple endings. In the worse ending, Almaz may have stayed dead as he planned, but it resulted in Mao being too powerful for Aurum to kill (Beryl also contributed to this). In the Almaz ending, Almaz prevents Mao from killing Aurum meaning he's alive to see that the hero he failed to kill not only prevents his death but also is the new Overlord. And in the normal and Super Hero Mao ending, Mao refuses to kill him and either experiments on him or forces him to be his butler again. In other words, Almaz is the very person that screws him over with ''everything'' he planned for 200 years.]]
* TheStraightMan
* TenderTears: Sheds them for Mao after [[spoiler: everyone recognizes him as the freshman leader given Mao won't cheer on the outside.]] Naturally, Mao is disturbed by this act.
** He does it again [[spoiler: when he realizes how much Mao is suffering because of his father's death.]]
* [[spoiler:TheyDo: With Sapphire in the normal ending.]]
* ThrowTheDogABone: Epilogue to normal end, see below.
* TheVonTropeFamily
* [[spoiler: WhatTheHellHero: While Almaz didn't know that pulling the plug would make Mao's mind revert back to a baby, announcing his attentions after he promised Mao he would stay by his side and then later using the Princess as an excuse for wanting to leave the Netherworld while Mao was in that infant state gets him chewed out by Geoffrey, Champloo and Sapphire with Sapphire being the one that sends him into a minor {{Heroic BSOD}} but quickly recovering thanks to Champloo's lecture that makes him go back into Mao's heart to set things right.]]
* YankTheDogsChain: In the cruelest way possible during the Almaz ending. Ouch.

[[folder:Princess Sapphire Rhodonite]]
!!Princess Sapphire Rhodonite
!!!Voiced by: Akiko Hasegawa (JP), StephanieSheh (EN)
[[quoteright:315:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sapphire_6569.png]]
->Princess of her kingdom. Very aggressive despite her appearance. Probably best described as a CloudCuckoolander raised by Machiavelli. Has decided that the best way not to be a DistressedDamsel is to kill via preemptive strike anyone who might kidnap her.

Tropes associated with Sapphire:
* ActionGirl
* AxCrazy: Was she raised by the [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} World Eaters]], dood?
* BadassNormal: Along with most humans in your party.
** BadassPrincess
* BattleCouple: [[spoiler: With Almaz]]; also leads to GameplayAndStoryIntegration with a 99% combo rate in Dark Hero Days.
* ChainsawGood: Not in the game itself, but in one of the scenes when she feels she should take action with helping open Mao's heart, [[ComicallyMissingThePoint she plans to do so with a chainsaw]], which sends him running away with his tail between his legs.
* TheChick: That being said, the only way she'll ever try to "open your heart" is with a [[ChainsawGood chainsaw]].
* CombatMedic
* CutenessProximity: Sends Beryl to MarshmallowHell upon meeting her, and later sets off a trap that uses a stuffed animal for bait.
* DarkSkinnedBlond: More like dirty white than full on blonde.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Inversion, princesses are better because Sapphire is one of them.
* GirlWithPsychoWeapon: Her chainsaw, played for laughs in one of the games more well known (funniest) scenes. Also proficient with axes.
* HadesShaded
* HellishPupils: While common in ''Disgaea'', hers deserve special mention because a) she's not a demon and b) they're star shaped.
* HelloNurse: Game play, not story as her evility is like Rozalin's in ''Disgaea 2''.
* HeroicComedicSociopath
* IAmAMonster: "Demons are cold and heartless, huh? Then maybe... I truly am a demon."
* KickingAssInAllHerFinery: Her clothes are still very fancy and opulent, yet still allow her to brawl.
* LadyOfWar
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Her natural conclusion to nearly every problem that arises.
* [[spoiler:MyEyesAreLeaking: Sapphire doesn't realize that she's crying for the very first time until Almaz points it out to her.]]
* {{Ojou}}
* [[OneManArmy One Woman Army]]
* PrettyInMink
* SaveThePrincess: Inverted. She watched a countless stream of servants and heroes get themselves killed in her name. Now she's going to kill anything and everything that might threaten a hero. And she ''can''. Also the reason she's AxCrazy.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: When chewing Almaz out in chapter 4, it was a test to see if he was really the kind of person she thought he was, thus worthy of her affection. In a rather deadpan way, she states she would have killed him if he failed.
* ShipperOnDeck: If the drama CD's are anything to go by, seems like she ships Beryl and Mao.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan
* SuddenlyFluentInGibberish: Subverted. She doesn't ''really'' understand what regressed Mao is saying -- she's just kinda ''[[MurderIsTheBestSolution hoping]]'' that he's allowing them to murder the residents of his heart.
* TechnicolorEyes: Neon green with white star-shaped pupils.
* TheOtherDarrin: In the Vita-exclusive side-stories, she's bizarrely replaced by Asuka's VA. (This makes it really awkward [[TalkingToHimself if they're in the same scene]]).
** Which makes even less sense since her original VA voices Rutile instead.
* [[spoiler: TheyDo: With Almaz in the normal ending.]]
* UnableToCry: [[spoiler:Until Almaz dies]].
* {{Unicorn}}: Sapphire summons a [[HealingHands healing]] unicorn in her last Special Attack.
* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlFriend: Many of her blood thirsty thoughts are due to this
* WrongGenreSavvy: Her initial plan to enter the Netherworld to kill the Overlord plotting to kidnap her, except as she learns, there was no demons planning to kidnap her. [[spoiler: Instead, actually going to Netherworld puts her in danger since do her nearly ending up in a trap Aurum set for Almax.
* {{Yandere}}: And how! Almaz tends to be safe from her murderous impulses, though he does get hit by her on occasion...
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade A.

[[folder:Raspberyl]]
!!Raspberyl
!!!Voiced by: Creator/ChiwaSaito (JP), Creator/LauraBailey (EN)
[[quoteright:205:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Raspberyl_5628.png]]
[[caption-width-right:205:Normal outfit]]
[[quoteright:215:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Raspberyl_2_1664.png]]
[[caption-width-right:205:Teacher outfit]]
->Mao's childhood friend and the school's resident delinquent (a position which she maintains by being an almost [[MessianicArchetype Messianic Do-Gooder]]) who tries to talk Mao out of the whole "Hero" thing because she thinks he might end up stealing her thunder. Calls herself Beryl and comes with her own posse of {{Technical Pacifist}}s.

Tropes associated with Raspberyl:
* AlphaBitch: Beryl is the demonic verion of this, which is an inversion.
* AntiAntiChrist: Okay, not ''nearly'' as dramatic as most examples, but she's a demon who's rebelling against the perceived notion of "demonness."
* [[ArrangedMarriage Arranged Rivalry]]: With Mao, as arranged by their parent. May be a [[PerfectlyArrangedMarriage Perfectly Arranged Rivalry]] at that.
* {{Badass}}: She qualifies conventionally, but InUniverse, she prides herself on a being a ''demonic'' badass, which is an inversion--she's a goody two-shoes, which she believes makes her a badass rebel.
** BadassAdorable
** BadassBookworm
** BadassInDistress: During [[spoiler: Chapter 3]].
* BigEater: Asuka mentions that Raspberyl eats all the lunches of her absent classmates for them... but since they're always absent, she eats about ''thirty'' lunches per day.
** IAteWhat: Speaking with female ninjas in the classrooms reveals that they've been poisoning all of those lunches, and are rater disappointed at the [[IronStomach lack of pandemonium in the results]].
* BlushSticker: Gets them when she is very happy.
* [[spoiler: BonusBoss / SecretCharacter: In ''Disgaea 4'', you can fight and recruit her in one of the post-game maps]].
* CoolDownHug: Uses this to prevent Mao's really evil side, from taking over. TWICE!!
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* CuteMonsterGirl: According to Sapphire, at least.
* CutesyDwarf
* {{Delinquents}}: An inversion as she is considered a delinquent because she's an unashamed Goody-Two Shoes; yet glories in opposing her society's standard for its own sake.
* TheFettered: By her dedication to being a delinquent, to the point that she's forced to bow out of fighting Mao several times because she has to hurry off to class or make it home before her self-imposed curfew.
* GirlPosse: Kyoko and Asuka.
* GoGetterGirl: She dedicated her life to become the greatest delinquent that there ever was.
* HornedHumanoid
* InSeriesNickname: As mentioned above, she prefers to go by Beryl.
* LovableAlphaBitch
* {{Meganekko}}: In Raspberyl Mode.
* MoralityPet; To Mao.
** MoralityChain: [[spoiler:When she dies in the bad ending]].
* NeverTrustATrailer: The opening shows demons raising their arms and singing as Beryl runs down the halls into class, as if they're praising her. Two big problems with this, a) All of Evil Academy seem to despise her for being a NobleDemon, and b) She would never even ''consider'' running down the halls. She even tells Kyoko and Asuka not to ever ''dare'' do it practically at the very beginning of the game, before we even know who she is.
** TrailersAlwaysSpoil: While she would never run in the halls, [[spoiler: it turns out her demonic peers actually respect her and are grateful for her help, even if they're mostly too obsessed with appearing properly evil. When she's kidnapped, several express concern, and Mao actually doing something about it earns him high regard]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: 1578 years old, but if you take into account the 100 years = 1 year Demon/Human age exchange rate, she should not look like she's ten, other than the fact that the character designer is a shameless {{Lolicon}}.
* OneeSama: How Kyoko and Asuka address her in Japanese; translated as 'my lady'.
* PlayingWithFire: Her primary element.
* ProperTightsWithASkirt
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: 1578.
* SailorFuku
* ShipperOnDeck: She just loves pairing [[VideoGame/Disgaea2CursedMemories Adell and Rozalin]] up; in both the {{DLC}} in ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|Absence of Justice}}'' and the extra content in ''[[VideoGame/Disgaea2CursedMemories Dark Hero Days]]''. She also enjoyed watching Almaz and Sapphire develop into a couple throughout the main game. Being a ShipperOnDeck is a requirement for being a delinquent it seems.
* ShipTease: With Mao.
** Especially in Raspberyl Mode. Honestly, she couldn't be more obvious really.
* TheSmartGuy
* {{Squee}}: How she reacts to things like meeting a rare spawn like a hero, or seeing elusive skills like love and affection in action.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type-B with Mao.
* TokenMiniMoe

[[folder:Mr. Champloo]]
!!Mr. Champloo
!!!Voiced by: Keiichi Kuwabara (JP), Creator/ChristopherCoreySmith (EN)
[[quoteright:269:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mr_Shamploo2_5590.png]]
->Evil Academy's legendary, strict Home Ec teacher, an incredibly [[HotBlooded enthusiastic]] practitioner of the deadly Fire Chaos Style Kitchen Fist. He has a tendency to make wise observations wrapped in cooking metaphors, but he's also surprisingly competent and notably altruistic. Tags along with Mao for his own reasons, but seems to know an awful lot about a variety of things despite not being on the school's payroll ''or'' its insurance.

Tropes associated with Mr. Champloo:
* BatmanGambit: Not the orchestrator, but the prime agent of it. The orchestrator is [[spoiler: Mao's dad]].
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Who knew that various cooking styles could translate so well into deadly martial arts techniques?
* ChekhovsGunman: Has elements of this that are revealed in [[spoiler: the final episode]].
* HotBlooded: Quite, quite so.
* HotbloodedSideburns: You could swear the man stepped straight out of GetterRobo, HotBlooded-ness and all.
* IceCreamKoan: Any life-lesson can be explained with cooking metaphors. He and Almaz get into quite a lengthy conversation using nothing but these in chapter 4.
* LargeHam: With a delicious seasoning and glaze.
* NobleDemon: Doesn't even bother ''pretending'' to be evil and appears to actually care about Mao and others' well-being.
* PowerFist: Fire Chaos Style Kitchen Fist is deadly indeed!
* RealMenCook
* ShoutOut[=/=]VerbalTic: BOOM!
* TeamChef

[[folder:Master Big Star]]
!!Master Big Star
!!!Voiced by: ChihiroSuzuki (JP), LiamOBrien (EN)
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/MasterBigStar_5908.png]]
->The Sophomore Class Leader. A [[TheDandy good-looking gentleman]] who does a fantastic job at being a leader, and looks down upon Mao for lacking good leadership traits.

Tropes associated with Master Big Star:
* AFatherToHisMen
* [[AwesomeMcCoolName Awesome [=McCool=] Name]]: [[spoiler: Subverted after part of his name gets stolen.]]
-->'''Almaz''': In case you were all wondering, "Master" is actually his first name.
* BigManOnCampus
* BishieSparkle
* BreakingTheFourthWall: [[spoiler:He asked the developers himself after his unfortunate letter event to fix his name but he said that they told him that they refused the five times he reported it because it was supposed to look like that in the scene.]] [[NoFourthWall Not that you should feel surprised.]]
* {{Bishounen}}
* CapeWings: Inverted, his wings serves as his two pieced cape.
* TheDandy: Supplies the page image.
* FullNameBasis: Starts regretting it after [[spoiler:someone steals the space and letter "a" in his name, and could only afford a new "e", changing his name to Master Bigster.]] He asks the cast to stop after this, but they refuse.
* MrFanservice: One of his abilities even increases the stats of adjacent female allied units.
* PeekABangs
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: 2,764.
* NeverTrustATrailer: The opening shows him fighting Mao alongside Salvatore. However, not only is he never fought until the post-game, but he and Salvatore were in an all-out ''war'' against each other.
* SomethingAboutARose: He holds one in his official art and his idle animation.
* WhipItGood: His new attack in Raspberyl mode, a "Rose Whip" like that of Kurama from YuYuHakusho.

[[folder:Salvatore the Magnificent]]
!!Salvatore the Magnificent
!!!Voiced by: Miho Yamada (JP), MichelleRuff (EN)
[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Salvatore_3518.png]]
->A member of the Diez Gentlemen. She is an military woman who gives (impossible) orders to her enemies as well as her own men. [[spoiler:[[HeelFaceTurn Quits the Diez Gentlemen]] soon after she discovers she was working for Super Hero Aurum the whole time.]]

Tropes associated with Salvatore:
* TheBaroness: Mostly the Sexpot variant, although she has elements of the Rosa Klebb (Almaz's reaction to her statement that Baal stole her "womanliness" is basically, "''what'' womanliness?")
* {{BFG}}: Great Gun King, a skill where she summons a Big Freaking GOLDEN Gun out of nowhere, shoots a Big Freaking BULLET out of it, and ''rides the bullet as it speeds toward the targets.''
* CommissarCap
* TheDragon: for the Senior Class Leader [[spoiler: (A.K.A, Aurum[=/=]Geoffery)]]
* FakeNationality: MichelleRuff gives her a German accent in the dub.
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn]]
* HellBentForLeather
* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: Her name is pronounced "SAL-vuh-TOR-ay" by everyone except Mao, who calls her "SAL-vuh-tor", [[CaptainObvious which is how the name is usually pronounced]].
* LadyOfWar
* TheMagnificent: Duh.
* NeverTrustATrailer: See Master Big Star's entry above.
* RapunzelHair
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: 2,666.
* RuleOfCool: Her orders invariably invoke this.
* TalkingToHerself: With Etna in the English version. They don't actually talk to each other in the scenes where they're both onscreen, but you can use Salvatore during the fight with Etna.
* WhoWearsShortShorts
* ZettaiRyouiki

[[folder:Geoffrey]]
!!Geoffrey/[[spoiler:Super Hero Aurum]]
!!!Voiced by: Gorou Kubota (JP), Creator/DaveWittenberg (EN)
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/geffroy_4970.png]]
->Mao's loyal and incredibly efficient butler, capable of creating devices on the fly to aid Mao or open dimensional gates that are supposedly incapable of being opened. He does it all so Mao can be the strongest Overlord. [[spoiler:And once that happens, he plans on doing battle with him and in the end either defeat him or die in battle against him. In reality, he is Super Hero Aurum, a legendary hero who had battled numerous Overlords, including Mao's father who he killed.]]

Tropes associated with Geoffrey
* CatchPhrase: "I thought this might happen, so..."
* CrazyPrepared: Note his catch phrase, he uses nearly every time something unexpected happens, which every single chapter.
* HyperCompetentSidekick: He has a knack for anticipating almost everything Mao (Or Beryl in Raspberyl Mode) needs.
* TheJeeves

[[folder:Asuka Cranekick and Kyoko Needleworker]]
!!Asuka Cranekick and Kyoko Needleworker
[[quoteright:297:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dsfsf_1678.png]]
[[caption-width-right:297:Kyoko and Asuka]]
->Asuka and Kyoko are two female demons, a Lady Samurai and Ninja respectively, who work alongside Raspberyl as "demon delinquents". They join the team along with Beryl after their graduation.

Tropes associated with Asuka and Kyoko:
* ADayInTheLimelight: They get their own story mode in ''Absence of Detention''.
* BareYourMidriff
* ColourCodedForYourConvenience: Both wear copious amounts of the same shade of pink as Beryl's hair.
* TheDividual
* {{Fainting}}: Asuka nearly does an Emotional Faint when [[spoiler: Mao kills the first Beryl doppleganger without warning]].
* TheFettered: Same as their lady.
* GirlPosse
* HeyItsThatVoice: [[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 So Kari's a demon delinquent ninja now]]?
* HighlyVisibleNinja: Justified with Kyoko as being stealthy is not the delinquent way, preferring to fight in broad daylight instead. It's also probably so that her outfit matches with Raspberyl and Asuka.
* InsaneTrollLogic: They both keep making hasty conclusions about Raspberyl's lovesickness in their story mode after seeing her depressed and tired, bringing up potential love candidates as they spy on her delinquent actions. In the end, it turns out that [[spoiler:she was truthfully tired because she had been making gifts for both of them to congratulate them for being together over 100 years]].
* IOweYouMyLife: [[spoiler:Asuka was diagnosed with demon leukemia a long time ago. If it wasn't for Raspberyl being her donor, she would've been in bed even today]].
* MeaningfulName: Asuka enjoys folding [[ThousandOrigamiCranes paper cranes]], while Kyoko is an avid seamstress.
* TheOtherDarrin: In [[UpdatedRerelease Absence of Detention's]] special side story, Kyoko is played by a different actress.
* PaletteSwap: Of the Lady Samurai and the Kunoichi, respectively. Oddly enough, they still have a single unique move each. [[note]]Two in Raspberyl Mode.[[/note]]
* PaperMaster: Asuka
* RapunzelHair: Like all Shrine Maidens/Lady Samurai, Asuka wears hers in a ponytail.
* [[RecurringExtra Recurring Extras]]: Invoked. They always follow Raspberyl everywhere she goes, including cutscenes. Most of the time they're just there in the background watching everything unfold. Averted a bit in the UpdatedRerelease where they get their own story mode.
* RedOniBlueOni: Subtle, but still present. Kyoko is generally the first of the pair to speak up and shows her emotions more strongly, particularly when it comes to her OneeSama Beryl. Asuka, meanwhile, is more soft-spoken and calmer, though she shows Raspberyl just as much respect.
* TomboyishPonytail: Kyoko's sweeps upwards, while Asuka's sweeps back and downward. Both styles keep it out of the way.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Asuka is one according to her Evility.

[[folder:Vato Bros.]]
!!The Vato Bros.
->The Vato Bros. - Chewie, Cholo and Churro by name - are a trio of Orc honor students who (in the English dub) speak with heavy Latino accents. They serve the same game role as [[VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness Mid-Boss]] and [[VideoGame/Disgaea2CursedMemories Axel]], as recurring comic relief characters.

Tropes associated with the Vato Bros.:
* FlunkyBoss: Stages with them usually have the Vato Bros. standing up on a platform away from the action while their lower-level friends attack.
* GoldfishPoopGang
* {{Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain}}s
* PaletteSwap: They're ordinary orcs who just happen to be purple.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Firm believers in this.
** {{Irony}}: Mao, with his 1.8 Million evil IQ, [[EvilCannotComprehendGood can't wrap his mind around basic concepts like friendship and love]]. The Vato Brothers, despite being weaker and not as quick on the uptake, practically ''run'' on friendship.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:With the help of their 200,000 family members.]]
* VerbalTic: Each one has a different copula. (Ese for Chewie, homes for Cholo, and weddo for Churro)
** Lampshaded later when they temporarily drop it, and Mao can't tell the difference between them.
** Their Japanese verbal tics are the same as their names: Yansu, Zansu, and Gozansu.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: They have one strategy: calling upon their friends for help. They just apply this in different ways.

[[folder:BeyondX]]
!![=BeyondX=]
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/200px-BeyondX_720.jpg]]
A bizarre girl with the ability to shape shift. She, like Salvatore, is a member of the Diez Gentlemen.

Tropes associated with [=BeyondX=]:
* StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: [[spoiler:While not the first Disgaea boss to change levels from different times, it's probably worth noting that when you talk to her in the hub area when she's Ms. Machiko, she's listed as level 500, which puts her as being more powerful than the final boss. Both times you fight her, she's nowhere nearly that powerful.]]
** FridgeBrilliance: A big part of this game's plot is that things like a character's title [[MediumAwareness can actually be seen by others, and even transferred]]. ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|Cursed Memories}}'' makes it explicit that they are aware of their character levels as well. So shape shifting would be useless as a disguise unless you can fake this information too.
* CosplayOtakuGirl: Due to her shapeshifting ability others view her as such, although she denies it.
** Though when you run into her in the Item World's Innocent towns, she sometimes does ask about Mao's opinion on cosplaying girls.
* HornyDevils: One of her "disguises" is that of [[spoiler: Ms. Machiko]], a succubus.
* PaletteSwap: Of the generic mage class.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Which she uses for (cosplay) covert operations.

!!!Characters introduced in Disgaea 3 Absence of Detention

[[folder:Rutile]]
!! Rutile
!!!Voiced by: SayuriYahagi (JP), StephanieSheh (EN)
[[quoteright:266:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Rutile2_3850.png]]
->A 15-year old halfling Nekomata raised on Earth. She's unfamiliar with the ways of the Netherworld, so she transfers to Evil Academy to learn more. Though gentle and trusting, she packs a lot of power into her small frame. She's one of two new characters exclusive to the PS Vita re-release.

Tropes associated with Rutile:
* BadassAdorable: Cute, adorable, half-human[=/=]half-nekomata loli. Capable of defending herself as well.
* {{Catgirl}}
* CrutchCharacter: Subverted, depending on the player's party levels. On low level parties, she has a special that hits for 1600-2100 damage- enough for the player to breeze through levels. However, [[spoiler: She leaves at the end of the chapter, but then joins again after the following map]].
* CombatMedic
* CuteLittleFangs
* DiskOneNuke: Comes with a special that deals massive damage to an enemy. After finishing her scenario, you can use her in the main cycle if your party members are way behind!
* {{Delinquents}}: Inverted example, much like Raspberyl. She's basically touted as being more of a Delinquent than Raspberyl, even though all she did was pay her school fees.
* [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength Does Not Know Her Own Strength]]: Another reason for her transfer to the Netherworld is to get a better hold on her strength, as she's accidentally destroyed stuff in the Human World schools, causing her to be ostracized.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: [[spoiler:To Stella when she goes into full SanitySlippage]].
* HalfHumanHybrid
** HumanMomNonhumanDad: Inverted, as her mother is a Nekomata demon.
* NewTransferStudent: From the Human World. [[spoiler:And from Majin Academy acting as a spy]].
* [[spoiler:TheMole: To Stella, but she does it only because she's awfully worried about Stella.]]
* NiceGirl: Very trusting of others, though a bit naive.
* PintsizedPowerhouse
* PowerFist: Her most proficient weaponry set is fists, thanks to training from her mother.
* SailorFuku: But only the top.
* SoLongAndThanksForAllTheGear: [[spoiler: Subverted, Leaves at the end of the first chapter, but She joins again after the second chapter's first map.]]
* TalkingToHerself: She shares the same VA with Sapphire.
* TokenMiniMoe: She's the youngest character in the remake since most of the other characters are Really700YearsOld
* WhoWearsShortShorts
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

[[folder:Stella Grossular]]
!! Stella Grossular
!!!Voiced by: SaoriHayami (JP)
[[quoteright:338:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stella_8_2823.png]]
->The sole daughter of the Chief Director of Death Institute, Majin Academy, a rival school to Evil Academy, and also its acting Student Body President. She raises monsters, with slimes and zombies being her favorites. She has a spoiled, uppity attitude, which is strangely countered by an immature, prank-loving side. The second of the two new characters. [[spoiler: Her behavior stems from struggling to gain the approval of her father, who was in fact killed by Aurum, but Stella couldn't cope with it and continued trying to earn his approval while talking to his dead body.]]

Tropes associated with Stella:

* AcademicAlphaBitch: What she comes across. [[spoiler:It's mostly her SanitySlippage at play]].
* AcademyOfEvil: Majin Academy, where the main goal is to teach students to become Majins. [[spoiler:The only Majin being Stella, much to her dismay]].
* DetachedSleeves
* DiskOneNuke: Comes at level 90. A Big deal if your other party members are way behind.
* {{Jerkass}}: [[spoiler: Towards Rutile.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: Not initially, when she just comes off as a jerk, [[spoiler: but after TheReveal that her father was DeadAllAlong, she turns into a darker character as a result of her SanitySlippage.]]
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn: At the end of her scenario.]]
* HornedHumanoid
* NotSoDifferent: Largely parallels Mao, including [[spoiler: the loss of her father to Aurum and having to come to terms with it.]]
** DistaffCounterpart
* OneWingedAngel: Her "Flame Hazard" special transforms her into a gigantic lava lizard.
* {{Ojou}}: Believes everything she does is "elegant".
* OjouRinglets
* PlayingWithFire: She even has an evility that drops the fire resistances of everyone else on the map aside from herself.
* Really700YearsOld: 1657 years old.
* [[spoiler:SanitySlippage: After her father was defeated and subsequently killed by Aurum, she slowly fell into this.]]
* [[spoiler:SuckySchool: Let's just say that it's quite pathetic your Majin school doesn't have above seven students that aren't even close to becoming Majin. It's because of this that Stella tries to ruin Evil Academy's reputation.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Type A.
* [[spoiler:[[WellDoneSonGuy Well Done Daughter Girl]]: And she's trying to get he approval of somebody whose dead.]]
