[[folder:Satan Jacob/Sadao Maou]]
[[quoteright:349:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maousadao_6604.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Shinobu Matsumoto (Drama CD) and Creator/RyotaOhsaka (Anime) (Japanese), Creator/JoshGrelle (English)

Maou is the protagonist and, as his new name suggests, the former Devil King. After being defeated in Ente Isla, he withdrew with his remaining general, Alciel, to a new world where he would recuperate and regroup. Unfortunately, this new world does not possess magic, reducing him to a mere employee at [=MgRonalds=], slowly morphing into a rather nice (if snarky) person.
----
* AffablyEvil: Maou is snarky but generous and friendly even when plotting world domination.
* {{Badass}}: Part of the job description, but it really comes to the forefront when he [[CurbStompBattle crushes Lucifer and Olba like fleas]].
* BadassCape: Part of his original clothing he has from Ente Isla.
* BadPowersGoodPeople: On Earth, he gets stronger by feeding on the terror and other negative emotions of nearby humans, but he doesn't intentionally terrorize them, and after defeating those who do, he often expends all of his accumulated power to undo the collateral damage.
* BecomingTheMask: When acting as a model employee he comes to understand humans better and to really value this new world.
* BenevolentBoss: Extremely so, above and beyond expectations. Maou demonstrates an unquestionable amount of loyalty to his underlings, [[spoiler:and does not hold a grudge for betrayal or usurpation]].
* {{BFS}}: Can turn his broom/mop into one.
* {{Bishonen}}: Maou's human form looks like a handsome teenager.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Maou's forces destroyed Emi's village, but he just gives a vague apology for his lack of understanding about humans back then, as well as lack of complete control over his underlings, without having the slightest idea of what particular incident she's talking about. He's sincere, but it's obviously not really a big deal for him.
* CelibateHero:"hero" may not be the best word, but the great Demon Lord clearly has no interest in pursuing a romantic relationship of any kind. Sorry, [[SmittenTeenageGirl Chiho]].
* CharacterNameAlias: Demon Lord (Maou) Satan becomes Sadao Maou.
** LouisCypher
* ClothingDamage: When he transforms into his true form.
* CompellingVoice: A hypnotic voice is one of the only powers Maou can use with his magic as low as it is and even then not much.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: It's easy to forget that he's a powerful demon lord after his time on Earth robs him of the dignity and atmosphere such a title as 'Maou' merits.
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler:In the middle of a fairly even fight between Lucifer and Olba versus Emilia and Alsiel, Maou pops up, slams the injured Olba through a wall or something, teleports to Lucifer and oneshots him with a very powerful punch.]]
* CuteLittleFangs: More apparent in the manga.
* DeathGlare: [[spoiler:In his demon form. [[http://i1344.photobucket.com/albums/p654/AraragixHitagi/tumblr_mm77tyyH711rkmjjzo1_500_zps3016203c.gif He literally glares Olba into a wall and makes Lucifer freeze up in fear.]]]]
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Technically, "Maou" means "Devil King". In Ente Isla, humans refer to him in two syllables ("Ma-ou"), thus referring to his title. On Earth, they use the first syllable ("Mao"), thinking it is just his surname.
* EvilOverlord: Formerly, and currently trying to reattain this status.
* EvilSoundsDeep: While in his true, intimidating form, Maou has a [[GutturalGrowler rougher voice]].
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Many would be surprised to learn that the devil king had humble beginnings. In fact, he was at the very bottom of the demonic pecking order, [[spoiler:until his life was saved by an angel -- Emi's mother, Laylah. While he was recuperating, she tutored him in various things to pass the time, mainly politics, diplomacy and, most importantly, the proper use of military power. This knowledge was obviously put to ''very'' good use. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Whoops.]]]]
* GenreSavvy
** In Episode 5, Maou figures out who the villains are and their motives as soon as he meets them, explicitly comparing them to a B-movie. This is despite only being on Earth for a few months. (Ashiya immediately lampshades this by yelling at Maou for wasting money on movies when they have such a tight budget.)
** During the climactic battle, Sariel finds himself outclassed and tries to even the odds by grabbing [[DistressedDamsel Chiho]] as a hostage... [[spoiler:only to receive a couple devastating blows from ''Chiho''. Turns out Maou was one step ahead and used an illusion spell to make himself look like Chiho.]]
* GoingNative: Takes to Earth life like a duck to water. [[spoiler:When he actually ''does'' attain enough power to get back to Ente Isla, he forgoes it -- he has too many shifts that month. After the battle with Sariel, he does the same thing to fix the collateral damage that their battle caused.]]
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: As a human, Maou sustains some really nasty, and occasionally outright fatal injuries, but fortunately this tends to coincide with a sudden boost in fear from nearby humans, recharging his demonic powers enough that he can recover.
* HellishPupils: Maou has red, slitted eyes which are about the only trace of his demon nature that carries over to his human form.
* HeroicBuild: Whenever he gets his magic back, he also becomes completely ripped and he ends up destroying his shirts in the process (In the anime, anyway -- in the manga, while he gets his horns and hooves back, he doesn't get the build the first time it happens).
* HornedHumanoid: The first clear sign that this new world has something wrong with it (from their perspective) is that Satan's horns have vanished. One of his horns has been cut partway through by Emi.
* HumanityEnsues: Once arriving on Earth.
* {{Hunk}}: His true form is huge, covered with muscle and gains a much more masculine and even craggy face.
* LargeAndInCharge: In his true form, Maou is nearly twice the size of most men.
* LargeHam: He can be prone to this when talking to Emi, such as when he announces his new position as shift manager in episode 7.
* LightningBruiser: In his true form, Maou is as physically powerful as he looks, and can teleport with ease.
* LikeAnOldMarriedCouple: The kind of scene he sometimes instigates with both [[HouseHusband Alciel]] and [[FriendlyEnemy Emilia]].
* MageInManhattan: Maou still has a goal of taking over both worlds. By climbing up the wage slave ladder, apparently.
** This is actually FridgeBrilliance if you look at his backstory. He was once the bottom of the demonic pecking order, but was able to work his way up to being the King of the Underworld. So if he can go from new hire to shift manager in a few months, imagine what he could accomplish in a century (he's immortal, and already hundreds of years old, after all).
* MagicPants: [[ShirtlessScene His shirt gets ripped to shreds]] when switching to extra-large demonic beefcake form, but the top half of his pants survives somehow, and they're still tight when he shrinks again.
** Also extends to his underwear, which is {{Lampshaded}} in episode 12.
* MasterOfIllusion: [[spoiler: Can disguise himself as someone else to get a surprise attack in on his enemies in his true form.]]
* MundaneUtility: [[MundaneMadeAwesome With glowing red eyes]] and [[SoundtrackDissonance serious music]], Demon Lord Satan uses his mighty but dwindling magical power to figure out what katsudon is.
* NiceGuy: Maou, the former ''[[SatanIsGood Demon Lord]]''. He's kind of snarky, but even in the first episode he's willing to hand over his own umbrella to a girl he doesn't know and doesn't expect to see again.
* NobleDemon: He really embraces his role as the Demon Lord, opposition by the Hero and the sacred church included. However, he refuses to involve innocent people in the conflict and tends to sacrifice his own goals in favor of preventing too much damage from occurring around.
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: Despite Chiho's best efforts, Maou doesn't even seem to notice her rather [[{{Stripperific}} revealing]] swimsuit.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: His attacks in his demon form '''can be seen from outer space'''.
* PointyEars: As a demon in the manga and LightNovels, though not in the anime.
* PragmaticVillainy: At the very least, he claims that he fixed up the town after the fight with Lucifer because it would make Emi's allies see him as a good person and be reluctant to attack. Given that they were much stronger than him at the moment even if he didn't spend that power, it ''would'' be suitably pragmatic even if you assume he really didn't care about the town.
* PunchClockHero[=/=]PunchClockVillain: If it's his job, he's going to do it to the best of his skills, be it conquering the world or cooking hamburgers.
* RealityEnsues: Being shot HURTS LIKE HELL.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Maou is about three hundred years old.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: On account of being Satan and all.
* {{Satan}}: Maou's actual name is Satan, though most people refer to him by title. When he has his magic power, he looks like one of the classic images: cloven hooves, horns, massive bulk and a transformation from {{Bishonen}} to {{Hunk}}.
** SatanIsGood: Or rather, Satan Has Good Intentions, Kinda Sucks at Keeping the Ground Troops In Line, and Has the Same [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outgroup_homogeneity_bias Cognitive]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunbar%27s_number Biases]] the Rest of Us Have.
--->"Well, I mean... I was really busy during that time. I couldn't be everywhere at once, so... And I'm not trying to say it's ''not'' my fault, but... I mean, demons and humans naturally just don't get along with each other, right? And back then I didn't really grasp the concept of humans, so..."
* SeriousBusiness: Maou takes his part-time job ''very'' seriously. In fact, in the anime part of the reason he blew his cover to Emi is that he was considering using magic to heat up some fries after the fryer broke. He was angrier that Lucifer might make him late for work and make him miss being employee of the month than that the latter was trying to kill him and destroyed part of the city.
* SmugSmiler: A job requirement as a Demon Lord.
* SorcerousOverlord: Despite the imposing physicality he has in his demon form, Maou favors ranged magic over close combat.
* SuperpowerLottery: His true form provides Maou with unbelievable power, though the exact amount varies depending on how much fear and dismay he has access to.
* SuperToughness: Even without magic, he's able to weather some pretty powerful blows including magical explosions, being blasted through walls or falling from lethal heights. The attacks hurt, but don't do nearly the damage you'd expect for someone with a mostly human body.
* TakeOverTheWorld: Ente Isla ''and'' Earth - he's just planning on less destructive methods this time around. The link he somehow establishes between working his way up [=MgRonald's=] and taking over the world is flimsy at best.
* VillainProtagonist: He still intends to retake Ente Isla and now conquer the Earth, but in a less destructive way.
* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: In the light novels, before settling down at [=MgRonald's=], he took a variety of odd jobs within the first six months of his self-imposed exile on Earth.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Dark Green Hair]]
* YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe: Maou explains the obvious traits of Lucifer and Olba's takeover scheme, comparing it to a scheme that's not even used in B-Movies any more.

[[folder:Emilia Justina/Emi Yusa]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yushaemi_8451.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' YuuAsakawa (Drama CD) and Creator/YokoHikasa (Anime) (Japanese), Felecia Angelle (English)

Emilia is the Hero of Ente Isla. After defeating Maou, she tracked him down to Earth to stop his inevitable return, and learned just as he did that magic doesn't work too well. Seeing that Maou isn't causing any trouble, she begins to keep an eye on him while working as a call center agent (having faked her age to get it). Frustrated by Maou's apparent abandonment of his evil ways, she's at a loss for what to do.
----
* ActionGirl: Emi appears to have galvanized the resistance to Maou with her sheer strength, determination and charisma. In direct combat, the two are viewed as being roughly equal and well above the likes of Maou's generals or Emi's group. Unfortunately, in the second novel she does come into conflict with someone that is her worst possible opponent [[spoiler:even though he's ''supposed'' to be on her side and gets taken captive as a result.]]
* ACupAngst: Emi is particularly jealous of Chi's... [[UnusualEuphemism pair of one-pound hamburgers]], to say the least, although she hastily tries to console herself by babbling about how being big isn't helpful in battle, and that being small means a cheaper plate armor and greater agility. When Emi first meets Suzuno, she looks at the other girl's chest while sighing in relief that she's "just like me".
* AdaptationDyeJob: In the novel, Emi's eyes change from green to red when she powers up. In the anime, they remain the same. This turns out to be an actual oversight on the production's part and was corrected in later episodes. However, the actual shade of green is different from the novel anyway.
* {{Angrish}}: She can degenerate into convoluted raving when sufficiently angry.
* AskAStupidQuestion: [[spoiler:When Lucifer appears...]]
-->'''Emi:''' "Who is that? Did he do this?!"\\
'''Maou:''' "[[CaptainObvious Isn't that obvious?]]"
* BarbieDollAnatomy: [[http://www.batoto.net/read/_/132511/hataraku-maousama_v1_ch1_by_for-the-halibut/37 Here.]]
* BecomingTheMask: She quickly settles so much into her role that it becomes a large part of who she is.
* BerserkButton
** When Emi confronts Maou on acting so nice on Earth while he and his forces caused so much damage in her world, he gives a response of 'Ah, my bad, I wasn't really watching over my forces well enough. ...Besides, humans and demons never got along anyway.' The manner of delivery and the harshness of Emi's reaction vary by medium, but she's clearly ''pissed'' that he's not really accepting that much personal responsibility for the death of her father.
** On a lighter note, she also gets very irritable when it comes to her [[ACupAngst breast size.]]
* BerserkerTears: Downplayed. Emi has a tendency to start crying when she gets truly furious, which does not help her dignity at all.
* BlackAndWhiteInsanity: At the beginning, as far as Emi sees the world it really is just your classic, cliche 'hero fights the evil overlord who is trying to take over the world for no reason' kind of story. However, when she's forced to take another look at the situation she realizes that it's not good versus evil but rather one nation against another and neither one is exactly morally spotless: Maou's generals rampage across the land attacking civilians while the Church leading the fight against him manipulate from the shadows as well as poison, plot and betray their way to power. She's pretty upset when she realizes the world isn't that simple, but gets over it quickly enough.
* BraidsOfAction: Her one braid on her right side.
* BridalCarry: Maou in his true form saves Emi from a fall this way. She immediately wants him to put her down.
* ButtMonkey: In Ente Isla, Emi has dignity. On Earth, she's the most common butt of jokes. The stairway of Maou's apartment has it in for her, she constantly forgets she's in public when talking about her identity and Maou says it's his personal duty to annoy her.
* TheCape: She manages to hit almost every point in the trope. She's honorable enough that she refuses to attack her most hated enemies if they can't fight back and she's virtuous enough to work against former allies and friends to do the right thing. When Suzuno indicates that should the two of them team up to take down Maou, Emi would be able to return to Ente Isla immediately and be a hero, Emi refuses immediately: It would be wrong to work with the faction that Suzuno represents, it would be wrong to attack someone that is doing nothing wrong, Suzuno's group is using antiheroic means at best and she doesn't even care about being rewarded in the first place. That said, however, she's sarcastic and rude in her personal life.
* CharacterNameAlias: Hero (Yuusha) Emilia becomes Emi Yusa.
* ClingyJealousGirl: At least in the eyes of Earthlings -- no matter what she says, to Chiho (and later, Miki), she sounds and looks like an angry (ex-)girlfriend who hasn't let go of Maou.
* ClosedDoorRapport: On Earth, a simple locked door can keep a great heroine at bay and bring her down into tears.
* CoolBigSis: To Chiho, [[spoiler: After Chiho learns of where they are really from]]. She is quite protective of people in general.
* CoolSword: Her sword "[[NamedWeapon Better Half]]", which can only be used by half-angels.
* CryCute: At the end of Episode 2's ClosedDoorRapport moment, where her pathetic inability to get past the locked door of Maou's house reduces her to a sniveling mess before Maou finally lets her in. At the end of the same episode she can't help but cry in shame after she was forced to accept Maou's generosity in allowing her to stay for the night after losing her purse.
* DaddysGirl: She loved her father, Nord, a lot. She even said that to her he was a hero.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: Gets about as much focus as Maou.
* DoomedHometown: As seen in a FlashBack during Episode 4. Shortly after she's taken in by the Church, the demons attack, and she assumes her father died after her town was sacked. This was the main motivation for her to take up being a hero and destroying the demon forces.
* EnemyMine: She will often join forces with Maou to combat a greater foe, but the two will always find a way to [[HeadbuttingHeroes bicker the entire time]].
* ExpressiveHair: Emi's [[HairAntennae hair antenna]] tends to whip around or increase in volume exponentially when she's agitated.
* FantasticRacism: Emi is generally friendly and helpful... Unless she's talking to a demon, in which case she's a petty ball of passive-aggressive anger at best and [[VanHelsingHateCrimes outright murderous at worst]]. After all, it's not easy associating with the guys who [[DoomedHometown burned your village to the ground]].
-->'''Maou:''' "Just what the hell do you think we are?"\\
'''Emi:''' "Bloodthirsty monsters that are worse than cockroaches, that's what."
* FieryRedHead: Normally calm and collected, but Maou can bring out her fiery side.
* {{Flanderization}}: Her aggression and hostility in the anime are exaggerated from the original source material. The manga in particular shows her being far more mellow around Maou.
* FriendlyEnemy: By the end of the first novel she trusts Maou and Alciel not to cause problems or hurt anyone and begins spending a fair amount of time with them. Not that she would ever [[{{Tsundere}} admit it]].
* GeneralRipper: Terror on Ente Isla? Maou's fault. Terror upon Earth? Maou is involved. Something remotely suspicious? It has to be connected to Maou. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Prank calls from work?]] That is ''[[EvilIsPetty definitely]]'' Maou's fault. The culprit behind the prank calls ''was'' Urushihara and he currently lives with Sadao, so GuiltyByAssociation?
* GodivaHair: Emi when in the bath during Episode 4.
* GoingNative: Not at first, but after a couple of months and few meltdowns, she loosens up and starts to enjoy life on earth. She would never admit it of course.
* GoodIsNotNice: Though she does her best to live up to her title of the hero in every sense that she can, she's also rude, petty and returns a favor from Maou by breaking the umbrella she borrowed, though she does grudgingly replace it later.
* HalfHumanHybrid: The reason Emi was trained to be a Hero is because her mother was an angel, and her father a human.
* HeIsNotMyBoyfriend: Emi's blushing and actions do little to help her case that she doesn't love Maou, though [[spoiler:Chiho is let in on the secret at the end of the first novel and Episode 5]].
* HonorBeforeReason: Won't attack Maou seriously when he doesn't have his powers. She could kill him easily, but it would be dishonorable for her and [[WorthyOpponent he deserves a better death.]]
* HotBlooded: Emi gets rather worked up from time to time regarding Maou.
* HumanMomNonHumanDad: A gender flipped version, her father is the human while her mother is an archangel.
* HypocriticalHumor: And self aware enough to know it too. After sneering at Maou for being broke and with a mundane life and job, we then cut to her next day at work at a call center, after which she buys some chicken that's on sale and goes home to her normal apartment and watches bad TV before exploding that she's doing the exact same thing Maou is.
* IChooseToStay: After the first arc, she opts to stay in Japan under the pretense of keeping an eye on Maou. Of course, she's probably not in any hurry to return to Ente Isla, since she'd likely come into conflict with her former allies.
* IdiotHair: She's not stupid, but she's rash, aggressive and emotional.
* IgnoredEnemy: Maou takes Emi about as seriously as an abandoned kitten, all pity and no fear.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Though motivated in part by revenge, she refuses to seek it when she sees her targets aren't actually doing anything wrong. Further, her purity serves as an example to the better parts of the human side and caused the Church to see her as a post war liability since she'd be appalled by their scheming and corruption. When confronted by the complexity of the situation she refuses to side against Maou... but she also holds onto her moral convictions by stating that he ''has'' done wrong and must be brought to justice eventually.
* InstantArmor: Emi summons her armor and sword via magic.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She treats Maou's group with little to no respect and stalks them in her free time, but no matter how much she doesn't want to admit it, she trusts and cares for them.
* LikeAnOldMarriedCouple: The kind of scene she instigates every single time she talks to Maou.
* LuminescentBlush: Reacts this way in episode 12, [[spoiler:when Maou says he can see her breasts after he rescues her. Her entire head is red.]]
* MagicKnight: She favors direct melee combat, but knows a fair amount of magic as well. When she doesn't have enough power to rely on she can't use her sword to its full extent nor materialize all of her magic armor.
* TheMagnificent: Emilia The Hero (or Hero Emilia). She had nicknames such as ''"Holy Knight Emilia"'', ''"The Battle Maiden"'' and ''"Goddess Knight"''.
* MissingMom: She always believed that her mother, Laylah, died when she was a baby, but before the church came to take her away her father revealed that Laylah is in fact alive.
* MsFanservice: Emi sure does get a generous amount of [[ShowerScene Shower]] and [[LingerieScene Lingerie Scenes]], doesn't she?
* MysticalWhiteHair: When manifesting her angelic abilities, her hair turns white starting at the roots.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: Emi has a good deal of trouble convincing people that she's not Maou's stalker ex-girlfriend.
* OfficeLady: Emi's new job is less impressive than her old one but it pays better than Maou's.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Emi tells Maou about a demon that called her because she insists on being the one to defeat him. An unimpressed Maou points out that she probably shouldn't be talking about that in public.
* ThePaladin: As the great hero of human and archangel blood destined to slay evil.
* PlayingWithFire: Emi can summon holy flames to strike her opponent.
* PowerDyesYourHair: When in battle mode, Emi's hair turns [[MysticalWhiteHair silver]].
* RapunzelHair: Emi's hair reaches to nearly her knees.
* ReallySeventeenYearsOld: She's 17 years old, but has ID papers stating she's over 20. Part of why she has a slightly better job than Maou.
* RedHeadedHeroine: Magenta is her natural color.
* RoseHairedSweetie: Inverted due to her coldness and revenge ideas.
* RunningGag: Apparently she cannot go down a flight of stairs without falling, as this has happened more than once to her. Furthermore, other characters seem to share the same problem. The stairs outside Maou's apartment are apparently cursed because ''everyone'' falls down them at some point. She's just the most frequent victim because A). She's too stubborn to listen to Maou's warnings and B). It's funny.
* SamusIsAGirl: The Hero is revealed to be Emi in the end of the first episode. Reinforced by the fact we never see her face under the armor and that the narrator uses gender neutral language like 'hero' rather than stating a name. The manga was less subtle.
* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: Even though extravagant hair colors are common in this series, this color combination indeed marks her as an important character.
* SkilledButNaive: She's very powerful and charismatic, but the idea that her own side isn't completely morally pure comes as a huge shock to her. Maou and her former companions seem to be much savvier than her: Neither Albert nor Emeralda seem all that surprised that the Church was corrupt and Maou picks apart the enemy plot in seconds.
* StalkerWithoutACrush: Emi does regular stakeouts outside of Maou's apartment and frequently shadows him around town on the off chance that one of his daily errands ''does'' turn out to be a nefarious misdeed. She is aware of how bad this looks.
-->'''Emi:''' And, once again, I spent today being a stalker.
* StatingTheSimpleSolution: When asked why she didn't just kill Maou, she comes up with a weak excuse about him being able to pretend that he lost his power, but it seems to be that [[FriendlyEnemies she actually does like him because they help each other out]] and he's not really causing any trouble for the people of Earth.
* SympathyForTheDevil: Which is why she's having trouble with the whole slaying business.
* {{Tsundere}}: Emi is conflicted because she remembers the brutal war, but sees Maou being genuinely kind and helpful. It makes it hard to know how to treat him. She has a perfectly legitimate grievance and almost feels ''betrayed'' that he's not acting like a villain. What's more, the tsun side of the personality is exaggerated in the anime, leaving her very unlikely to admit that she at least trusts Maou, even if she doesn't like him.
** She gets better though. Later on she does a complete 180 when she finds out that [[spoiler:her father isn't dead]] she drops most, if not all, of her hostility towards Maou. Though she still believes in her obligations as a hero to oppose him.
* TykeBomb: Emi is definitely the good guy here, but when she was just a little girl she left her family to begin training to be the hero, and shortly afterwards her father was killed. She admits to herself that in the human world with Maou acting so un-evil she's rather lacking in purpose and drive, and doesn't know what to do without her desire for revenge.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Before she was taken in by the church she lived with her father and was very sweet and affectionate. Then Lucifer's army burned down her village, causing her to swear vengeance on the demon army.
* VillainousRescue: Apparently, this seems to happen to her a lot. Either it's Maou letting her stay the night at his home, and give her money for train fare when she loses her wallet, to having Alciel saving her from taking a fatal blow in Episode 5.
* WillfullyWeak: When she said she could kill Maou at any time during their first confrontations, she meant it. However, doing so both seems morally unjustified and would leave her stranded, so she resolves to keep an eye on him until he ''does'' do something wrong.
* WorthyOpponent: Though Maou doesn't take her seriously a lot of the time, she actually says at one point that while she could have killed him easily, it would be beneath them both to do so when he couldn't fight back.
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: Neither Ente Isla, nor her hometown, which was burned to the ground by demons. Though in the case of the former, she had enough power saved up that she ''could'' have returned anytime she wanted, at least in the first arc/novel. This may still be the case in later arcs but see IChooseToStay.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Magenta Hair]]: It also turns silver when she uses her sacred power.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: The Church had planned to make her into a Martyr by end of the war; either she would be killed in battle or, if that failed, they'd quietly off her once it was over.
* YouKilledMyFather: Emi's main motivation for becoming TheHero, since Maou's forces razed her village shortly after her father sent her with some church officials to train and fight against the demons.

[[folder:Alciel/Shiro Ashiya]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ashiyashirou_9442.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' TakehitoKoyasu (Drama CD) and Creator/YukiOno (Anime) (Japanese), Anthony Bowling (English)

Alciel is the last of Maou's four demon generals, as well as the most loyal, following his lord's escape to Earth. He tends to be more disdainful of humans than Maou, but because he is utterly loyal he follows his lord unquestioningly....Almost unquestioningly, as he tends to get exasperated at Maou's poor spending habits.
----
* AffablyEvil: He believes more strongly in acting like a proper demon than his boss, but quickly settles into the role of an extremely polite HouseHusband.
* ApologizesALot: He is constantly doing this, feeling he's not worthy of Maou's constant kindness.
* BadassCape: His general's mantle from Ente Isla. He even goes back to his apartment in the middle of a fight to go put it on. He does it again in episode 12; however, he gets to the battle well after it's been won, and Maou immediately asks why he even bothered to show up at that point.
* {{Bishonen}}: He's quite pretty.
* ButtMonkey: Constantly gets sick or injured and always seems to get the short end of whatever shenanigans the gang's involved in.
* CarFu: Slams Olba into a wall with thrown cars.
* CharacterNameAlias: Alciel becomes Shiro Ashiya.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He may act [[{{Adorkable}} dorky]] at times but he still is one of Satan's generals and he [[CarFu throws cars]] at people.
* DemonLordsAndArchdevils: The first of Maou's two surviving demon generals.
* TheDragon: At least he used to be the NumberTwo.
* FacialMarkings: Has what's more or less a natural MaskOfPower in his demon form.
* HellishPupils: Like Maou, he retains his slitted demon eyes while in his human form. A bit harder to tell since his eyes are drawn smaller than Maou's.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Maou. They're basically married.
* HouseHusband: Alciel turns from Satan's devoted servant to Maou's fussy "mother". Maou is in awe of his ability.
* IllBoy: He seems to be bedridden or sick quite often later in the series. [[spoiler: This is thanks to eating too much food with sacred power in it.]]
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: Alciel [[spoiler:is shot through the chest by Lucifer]] and uses his final moments before falling unconscious suggesting ways for Maou to save money.
* MarkedChange: How can you tell when he has his powers back? [[FacialMarkings Check the face.]]
* NighInvulnerability: Can withstand blows from even Emilia's sword with nary a scratch. The novels state that he does not actually have much magical talent, but he proved his worth even amongst the generals just by how hard his body is.
* OlderSidekick: To Maou who is only about 300 years old compared to Alciel's 1500.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Alciel is about 1500.
* SeriousBusiness: Alciel takes saving money very seriously. See MajorInjuryUnderreaction.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: One of his few remaining demonic traits in his human form.
* SupremeChef: At least Maou considers him one.
* TeamMom: Takes a supportive role to Maou, ranging from loyal friend to caring parental figure, and later becomes Urushihara's "caretaker."
* TenderTears: Any kindness Maou shows to Alciel is enough to move him to tears, believing he is not worthy.
* UndyingLoyalty: Alciel is utterly loyal to Maou, though at times he acts as a ServileSnarker or even a nagging HouseHusband. Pretty fortunate that Maou got to bring him along and not someone like Lucifer.
* UnusualEars: In his true form, he has PointyEars.
* VillainousFashionSense: Despite being almost killed by Lucifer and having his magic temporarily restored, Ashiya still took the time to go home and get his battle armor and cape before confronting the traitor. Then again, given that he has a tail as thick as his legs and it rips through his pants...
** He ends up missing the battle in episode 12 because of this.

[[folder:Chiho Sasaki]]
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sasakichiho_5771.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NaoTouyama (Japanese), Creator/TiaBallard (English)

Chiho is Maou's coworker at [=MgRonalds=] and has an obvious crush on him. She sees Emi as a rival due to not understanding the full situation. Contrasting the other three main characters, [[TheCutie she's very sweet, innocent]] and above all completely normal.
----
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Maou does care for her, but it is obviously in a nonromantic way. It becomes a running gag.
* CatSmile: Chiho displays one in the first episode, after being told by her manager not to spill fries again.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Chiho displays this trope quite often:
** In episode 2, she seems a little too excited when she questions Maou regarding his relationship with Emi when the latter goes into his restaurant to talk to him about a meeting.
** Later she also seems interested in him having a roommate, until he clears it up that it's a guy he's living with.
** Then she snaps at Emi in episode 3 when the latter shows up to interrupt their date and tries to warn her about getting too close to him.
** In episode 7 she completely loses it when she discovers Maou has a hand-made boxed lunch made by Suzuno.
** During episode 8, when Maou innocently suggests Suzuno come work at [=MgRonalds=], Chiho does an ArtShift, a clear sign she's not happy about that suggestion.
** And she lashes out at Suzuno in episode 13 after she sees the latter feeding Maou while she's trying to make dinner, and she gets mad at him for accepting her food so easily.
* CuteClumsyGirl: She's apparently a first dan archer, but is still rather clumsy at work and breaks things rather frequently.
* CutenessProximity: In episode 9, Rika, Emi's coworker, gives her a [[TheGlomp big hug]] after seeing how adorable she is in her work uniform. Later, several male customers are also gawking at her.
* TheCutie: Chiho is very sweet, cute and innocent, contrasting the snarky and silly denizens of Ente Isla.
* DullEyesOfUnhappiness: Every time Maou shoots down her attempts to flirt. Which happens often.
* GagBoobs: Plenty of jokes are made involving Chiho's above average bust size.
** {{Gainaxing}}: Chi is particularly guilty of this. Taken UpToEleven in episode 10.
* GenkiGirl: She is very energetic and expressive, especially around Maou.
* GirlishPigtails: They're more pronounced at work.
* GreenEyedMonster: Her frustration with Alciel being closer to Maou than she is helped power up Lucifer's magic when he was using her as a battery. She even knew that Alciel wasn't any kind of competition romantically, but because she's not close to Maou herself Alciel is nearly killed.
* {{Joshikousei}}: Her CuteClumsyGirl shtick is in full effect while serving food at [=MgRonald's=].
* LuminescentBlush: Turns bright red near Maou quite easily.
* MsFanservice: Not so much in the main series, but the ending for episodes 3-5 is just a picture of her in a pretty revealing bikini.
* MuggleBestFriend: And aspiring girlfriend.
* SecretKeeper: After episode 5, she is aware of Maou's demonic origins.
* SeriousBusiness: She instantly explodes into ClingyJealousGirl mode the moment she sees Maou [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nkI3ADZjWY bring a homemade lunch to work]]. And she doesn't take it very well when she finds out another girl made it, going so far as to call Emi to tell her.
* SmittenTeenageGirl: She develops a huge crush on Maou without knowing anything about him except that he's handsome and competent. While mostly portrayed positively, she does tend to get jealous and possessive
* TranslatorMicrobes: The "Sonar" spell that Albert tried to locate Emi with targeted her instead[[note]]the spell worked by zeroing in on those who thought of Maou constantly; let that sink in for a minute[[/note]], and as a result she can now understand the language of Ente Isla like a native speaker would. It's not known if she can read or speak the language, however.
* UnfazedEveryman: Is typically more shocked or distraught by the idea of having competition for her crush than the fact that her crush is ''{{Satan}}''. Her comments upon the reveal were that [[ExpectingSomeoneTaller she expected demon kings and angelic heroes to be more impressive and fantastical]].
-->'''Emi:''' "No kidding. Who'd think that a Demon King would work at [=MgRonald=]'s, Right?"\\
'''Maou:''' "[[HypocriticalHumor Like you're one to talk little Miss "Thanks-for-calling-how-can-I-help-you?"!]]"
* WalkingSwimsuitScene: Episode 10, where Chiho tries to catch Maou's attention while he's working by wearing a revealing swimsuit. It doesn't work.
* WeirdnessMagnet: It was thought that it was due to Maou hypnotizing her father, [[spoiler:but it was actually due to thinking about Maou]].

[[folder:Lucifer/Hanzo Urushihara]]
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ushiharahanzou_3263.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/HiroShimono (Japanese), Creator/AaronDismuke (English)

Lucifer is one of Maou's former generals and was believed to have been killed by Emilia. However, he survived thanks to the intervention of Olba and the two began to scheme for what to do after the war ended. He is a fallen angel and wishes to return to Heaven.
----
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Wages war on mankind, slaughtering entire villages in the process. Robs people to feed on their fear. Blasts holes through his own former allies in order to fulfill his own selfish goals. Picks up a girl's lost wallet and goes through it for information. And of course, it's this last one that disgusts people. Especially when Emi learns he used up her food coupon.
** Extended in the LN: Emi wasn't really too bothered at first... then she realized Lucifer had used up her food coupon! Apparently that crossed the line for her.
* BigBadWannabe: Tries to throw a coup against Maou in order to return to Heaven, but after about five minutes of success, Maou begins sucking in all the power of the fear and despair around them and taking it away from Lucifer, who realizes he's way out of his league. He gets flattened as soon as Maou gets done with damage control.
* {{Bishonen}}: He looks all of about fourteen and has rather feminine looks.
* ButtMonkey: After his defeat on Earth, he tends to be dismissed and treated as the butt of jokes.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: He has purple eyes and hair.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: After losing to Maou in episode 5, he's seen living with them and helping them out in episode 6.
* DemonLordsAndArchdevils: Maou's second surviving demon general.
* EasilyForgiven: Betrayed Maou, shot Alciel in the lung, destroyed Maou's heart, attempted to drop Chiho to her death and launched an indiscriminate attack on the city. Further, his army was the one responsible for the destruction of Emi's village. However, after giving him a really nasty punch to the face, he's accepted back into the protagonist team by Maou and Emi overlooks it.
* FakeDefector: [[spoiler:Lucifer pretends to join in with Olba again in episode 12, providing the magic Olba needs to pull the moon closer to earth with the knowledge that [[NiceJobFixingItVillain the plan would backfire spectacularly.]]]]
* FallenAngel: Lucifer has black, feathery wings. Though he has fallen, he wishes to [[AscendedDemon return to Heaven]] and seems to feel the best way to do this is by being a dick and terrorizing people. [[spoiler:This is also why he doesn't get sick from eating food with Sacred Energy inside.]]
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Maou views Lucifer as his responsibility and spares his life after the attempted betrayal, but that doesn't mean he has to like him.
* HeavenSeeker: His original goal was to go back to heaven. [[spoiler: He later he decides that Heaven is their [[CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming apartment]].]]
* HellishPupils: Just like Maou and Ashiya, he has them.
* {{Hikikomori}}: Maou outright calls him one in Episode 7.
** He wants to be one out of laziness, but he doesn't actually fear the outside world.
* HollywoodHacking: He can connect to Emi's personal station at her work using a laptop. He can also use the laptop to contact cellphones.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Loses in the first arc because after beating a powerless Maou, he decided to get a little too flashy and terrified the huge crowed around him, restoring Maou's powers. Not even an accident: There was no reason to cause that much damage, but he likes breaking stuff.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's sarcastic, rude, selfish and keeps trying to spend what little money Castle Maou earns.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: On occasion you can see the angel deep inside, such as making Asciel go to the hospital when he really needed to, and [[spoiler: sticking with Maou's side against Sariel, and stops Suzano from destroying a train station to create power for Maou, knowing he wouldn't want that.]] In any case, even as a FallenAngel, he's nicer than [[spoiler: Sariel]].
* LazyBum: Loves his new lifestyle as a Neet [[spoiler: and tricks Olba because he likes his lazy life.]]
* {{Manchild}}: He seems to be the most immature of the cast and as he is a fallen angel he is quite old.
** PsychopathicManChild: When he first appeared, he enjoyed the screams he caused and treated the battle as a big game.
* {{Neet}}: Maou, Ashiya and Emi are helpful enough to [[http://imageshack.us/a/img546/4249/lucifersresume.png highlight this for potential employers.]] In episode 11, Emi calls him one after throwing something at him when he tries to get out of helping Maou with selling stuff their landlady mailed home.
* OhCrap: Episode 5, Lucifer's face when Maou decides to finish the job himself [[http://i1344.photobucket.com/albums/p654/AraragixHitagi/tumblr_mm77tyyH711rkmjjzo1_500_zps3016203c.gif]]. Priceless. Also falls under ThisIsGonnaSuck.
* PeekABangs: Shows how Lucifer is not one to be trusted.
* PlayfulHacker: Developing a fascination with modern technology, Lucifer apparently picked up some computer skills.
* PsychoSupporter: Easily the most amoral character in the main cast. He's the one credited with burning down Emi's village and, as something of a favor to her, Maou basically offered her Lucifer's head on a platter at the end of the first arc if she wanted it. She didn't. After, he's kept from doing any damage largely by the fact that he likes being lazy and idle too much to bother switching sides again.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Has dark purple hair and his magic usually takes this form.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Though we're never given a specific number, since he's forgotten just what his age actually is. On paper, he's eighteen and doesn't even look that old.
* SmugSnake: Arrogantly gloats over a seemingly powerless Maou and plays around. Plays around too long, in fact, and in far too flashy a manner, which ends up backfiring drastically.
* TheStarscream: Conspires with Maou's enemies to fulfill his own goal of reentering heaven. Unfortunately for him, Maou is ''far'' more powerful and once the tables have turned he's absolutely horrified and in way over his head. Lucky for him that he's in a mostly comedic series.
* {{Troll}}: Look at his face when he hacked Emi's computer, he clearly enjoyed messing with her.
* VagueAge: So old that he lost count.
* WingedHumanoid: Of the vanishing sort.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Has long purple hair.

[[folder:Crestia Bell/Suzuno Kamazuki]]
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kazunosuzuki_2037.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KanaeIto (Japanese), Alex Moore (English)

Crestia was the First Interrogator of the Reformation (the "Inquisition", in an older definition) of Ente Isla, something she does a poor job of hiding. On Earth "Suzuno" poses as Maou's new next-door neighbor from a traditional family.
----
* {{Adorkable}}: Suzuno's clumsy grasp on modern Japanese culture is quite endearing.
* AntiquatedLinguistics: Thanks to studying the wrong things, her speech is very archaic and formal.
* DirtyBusiness: As a member of the Reformation, she's willing to get her hands dirty for the greater good. [[spoiler:In episode 12, she seriously contemplates destroying a train station in order to induce enough panic to power Maou with magic against Sariel until Lucifer stops her.]]
* DropTheHammer: Her WeaponOfChoice. In the anime, it's first seen in episode 11 during a FlashBack.
* EverybodyKnewAlready: Maou, Alciel and Lucifer knew the moment they met her that she was from Ente Isla, and, what's more, they knew for the exact same reason Suzuno thought Emi must have. Emi and Chiho, however, were in the dark until she slipped up more directly.
* FishOutOfWater: Unlike Maou or Emi, she's completely unfamiliar with real Japanese customs or practices and is utterly baffled about things like trains.
** FishOutOfTemporalWater: Suzuno actually did quite a deal of research on Japan once she got the opportunity. Unfortunately, all of it came from period dramas, samurai movies, and Showa-era documentaries.
* FistPump: When Suzuno decides that Emi is the absolute master of social convention in Japan, she begins copying her. Emi spills her cream before putting it into the coffee and Suzuno copies ''that'' as well, making a triumphant fist while cleaning it up since she got it 'right.'
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Keep an eye on her when she's not in the limelight of a scene. She'll either be emulating people's actions down to the errors or reacting to new stimuli with awe.
* HairDecorations / FlowerInHerHair: She wears one on her left-side that keeps her hair up.
** CombatHaircomb: She takes it off to transform it into her hammer.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:She ultimately sides with Maou in his fight against Sariel, after seeing how cruel the latter was, and how differently Maou acted on Earth.]]
* {{Keigo}}: Maou and Ashiya are baffled at her antiquated speech but struggle to respond properly.
* KimonoIsTraditional: She wears very traditional clothing and speaks extremely formally because she screwed up her research of Japanese culture and history.
* LearntEnglishFromWatchingTelevision: She learned about the Japanese language and culture from old period dramas. This leads to her acting and dressing very formally.
* LettingHerHairDown: When she takes her flower hair pin off to turn it into her hammer.
* LivingWithTheVillain: Yes, that {{Adorkable}} GirlNextDoor is a trained killer. [[spoiler: At least until she joins Maou and Emi's side. It is also revealed that the Maou residence knew from the start Suzuno was planning to kill them, but didn't really care.]]
* MasterPoisoner: Emi hints that she shouldn't bother: Maou and Ashiya are being friendly, but they're still demon lords. They'll catch on if she tries anything. In episode 11, a FlashBack shows some leaders of a heretical human group who drink some wine, only to then find out it was poisoned by her. [[spoiler:She's also been poisoning Maou's household by infusing their food with sacred energy, but none of them actually cared because it wasn't enough to hurt them apart from Ashiya, who ate too much of it. Hey, it's still free food right?]]
* TheMole: She was planted into Maou's apartment building in order to investigate Emi and to attempt an assassination on Maou if necessary.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Looks young but is actually 20 something.
* SelfServingMemory: When Chiho and Emi get rather apprehensive at the idea of visiting a reptile exhibit, Suzuno casually wonders if you can eat any of them then relates a story about how when she was traveling someone offered her lizard meat and she was unable to refuse. Listening to the tone of her voice and what she says, you'd think it was just a novel experience that ended up being pretty tasty. Watching the replay of the event, she's clearly disgusted at the idea, extremely hesitant and finds the food revolting.
* StrongerThanTheyLook: Easily carries a box of udon Maou struggles with. In a FlashBack during episode 11, she is seen wielding a giant hammer, which helps to explain her strength.
* TheseHandsHaveKilled: In a FlashBack during Episode 11, [[spoiler:we see that she has killed people, although it was due to her job as Inquisitor. When she started questioning the morality of her job, asking Olba why the Church never made negotiations with the heretics in the first place, he shrugs her off by telling her to focus on the task at hand]].
* ToBeLawfulOrGood: She's a lead member of the not quite dismantled Inquisition (Law) but has long gotten sick of it at all and admires Emilia's (Good) methods, a scenario that comes to a direct internal conflict near the end of the second arc. [[spoiler:It looks at first like she's choosing law by siding with her superiors Sariel and Olba, but she actually wants Maou to beat her and continue on to defeat Sariel as well. When she realizes Maou is too drained to even beat her, she stands aside and attempts to sabotage Sariel.]]
* YamatoNadeshiko: She acts extremely formal and traditional. Not necessarily because she's actually like that, but because her head has been filled with ancient ideas about Japan and old dramas. Even after being corrected about modern society, she's already gained a preference for acting/speaking formally, being traditional and wearing kimonos.

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/olbamayer_6612.bmp]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Katsuhisa Houki (Japanese), Mark Stoddard (English)

Olba is one of the six Archbishops of the church in the world of Ente Isla. He wields sacred magic like Emilia and attempted to follow her through the gate, but apparently didn't make it in time.
----
* BaldOfEvil: Completely devoid of hair, like how his character is devoid of redeeming qualities.
* EtTuBrute: Upon his defeat, he calls out Emilia for stopping so low as to work with demons. Everyone immediately calls him out on the hypocrisy of his statement.
* EvilOldFolks: He is as evil as his mustache is white.
* FallGuy: In two different ways. First, Suzuno suggests to the Church and Emi that they can work together to pin the blame for all sorts of nasty stuff on Olba, for which is he largely responsible. Afterward, they can genuinely clean up their act. Second, when Olba failed to return his own comrades went 'Oh, hey, this is convenient. Our inquisition got us into some hot water and oh so conveniently the guy in charge of it is MIA.' So it's thus implied that even if Olba went back to Ente Isla he'd still be in some serious trouble.
* GreenEyedMonster: Wanted to kill Maou so that Emi couldn't take the glory.
* HighPriest: Which is why Emi isn't willing to trust people from the Church after his betrayal.
-->'''Emi:''' The man who led your organization made an entire underground mall full of innocent people collapse just to kill me and the Demon King. How can I trust you unconditionally as you demand?
* HypocriticalHumor: Tries to call out Emi for working with Maou...after he was just working with Lucifer who was trying to slaughter innocents for fun. Nobody buys it for a second. Not even Lucifer. In fact he almost instantaneously called out on it by said two.
* LightIsNotGood: Olba is supposed to be one of the good guys, yet is teaming up with Lucifer who wants to kill Maou and Emi, one of his companions from Ente Isla. Later, two of Emi's companions arrive to tell her that the church back home is doing very similar things to Olba back on Ente Isla. These people wield explicitly sacred power.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler:His plan to help Sariel power-up by drawing the moon closer threw the entire city into mass panic, allowing Maou to feed on these emotions to power up -- exactly as planned by Lucifer, who then knocks Olba out once Maou is restored to full power, canceling the moon spell and reversing Sariel's own power boost.]]

----
* BerserkButton: Having lost friends and classmates in the Kobe earthquake, Rika relates how she would always get extremely angry whenever anyone asks her about it, so she's particularly happy when Emi (who presumably doesn't know about the earthquake) doesn't say a thing about it.
* KansaiRegionalAccent: She is from Kobe but she hides her accent to avoid people asking her about the Kobe earthquake. She does speak it when speaking with her folks.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Emi is hellbent on not involving Rika, and Alciel even comes up with an extremely elaborate and brilliant lie to excuse everyone's behavior.
* LuminescentBlush: When Alciel thanks her for putting a more positive spin on his new house husband tendencies, she blushes and looks down until Emi snaps her out of it.
* MuggleBestFriend: Emi's closest friend on earth.
* OfficeLady: Her day job, which she works alongside Emi.

* {{Gonk}}: She's so ugly that her looks frighten Maou and Alciel. You don't want to see her in a bikini.
