!Tropes relating to the group as a whole
* CantCatchUp: With the exception of Saji, their overall strength haven't much improved compared to the Occult Club's constantly-improving members. [[spoiler:This changes in Volume 14 thanks to Azazel giving them their MidSeasonUpgrade in the form of artificial Sacred Gears.]]
* HeroOfAnotherStory: It goes without saying that this team ''also'' had their own battles, adventures and origin stories that allowed them to become as powerful as they are today.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: They're rather strong but compared to Team Gremory they're lacking in firepower.
* [[spoiler:MidSeasonUpgrade: The remaining members (save Loup and Bennia) were given artificial Sacred Gears by Azazel by the time Volume 14 kicks off.]]
* WeakButSkilled: Compared to [[UnskilledButStrong Rias' group]] in Rating Games. They did research on them, using a gambit that almost worked but for [[spoiler:Issei's newly-discovered power to read someone's thoughts through their breasts]].

!!Souna Sitri
->'''Role:''' King\\
'''Species:''' Pure Devil\\
'''Voiced by:''' Natsuki Takamori (Japanese) and Marie Charlson (English)

StudentCouncilPresident of Kuoh Academy and a childhood friend of Rias.
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler:She used Team Gremory's power against them and tricks Rias that their final fight was going to be inside a barrier, when it turns out that she was going to let them waste their energy to destroy said "barrier". She almost won, too, if it weren't for Issei's new technique.]]
* BestHerToBedHer: A rare intellectual version, in that she won't take any man that can't beat her in chess. Although after seeing the happiness shared by Rias and Issei, she may lower that expectation.
* TheChessmaster
* TheComicallySerious: Especially when her [[{{Kawaiiko}} sister]] is around.
* ElementalPowers
** MakingASplash
* FirstNameBasis: With Rias [[spoiler:and eventually, Issei.]]
* [[spoiler:PurelyAestheticGlasses: Turns out she doesn't really need her glasses, being a devil and all. It is also revealed that they are made from magic that, according to her, is [[AwesomeYetImpractical practically useless but groundbreaking in research details]].]]
* ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming: Takes her surname after the 12th of the 72 demons of the ''Literature/ArsGoetia''.
* TheStoic: Almost everytime. That's, [[NotSoStoic at least until Serafall appears]].
** StoicSpectacles
* TheStrategist
* StudentCouncilPresident
* SueDonym: She uses "Souna Shitori" as an alias while at Kuoh Academy.

!!Tsubaki Shinra
->'''Position:''' Queen\\
'''Voiced by:''' AkikoKimura (Japanese) and Lauren Allison (English)

Student Council Vice-President of Kuoh Academy and Souna's right-hand.
* ActionGirl
* AttackReflector: This is how her Sacred Gear, Mirror Alice, works. Oh, and whatever damage is dealt with the mirror, it will be returned with twice the damage.
* HimeCut
* TheStoic
** NotSoStoic: As soon as she saw Kiba after talking with Rias and Issei, who's [[spoiler:shopping for Ophis' clothes]], she [[LuminescentBlush blushes like crazy]] and could [[SpeechImpediment only stutter]].
* {{Meganekko}}
* RapunzelHair: Reaches down to her knees.

!!Genshiro Saji
->'''Role:''' Pawn (×4)\\
'''Voiced by:''' Yuuichi Iguchi (Japanese) and Kyle Phillips (English)

Another member of the Student Council, whose drafting by Souna cost her four Pawn pieces due having a dragon inside him. He also wields Absorption Line, a Sacred Gear which happens to be a piece of the Black Dragon Vritra, later [[spoiler:completed by Azazel to include Blaze Black Flare, Delete Field, and Shadow Prison]].
* AlmightyJanitor: Not to the same extent as Issei, though.
* BigDamnHeroes: Against Loki. Even Issei thought his entrance was cool.
* ButtMonkey: Comes off as this in the first season of the anime. His only speaking scene has him getting one-upped by Issei, and his other foreground appearance his him reciving a dodgeball to the [[GroinAttack groin]] (courtesy of [[SuperStrength Koneko]], no less). The second season, which adapts parts of the novels that give him more screen time, treat him with more dignity.
* CastFromHitPoints: The way Saji powers his magic in the Rating Game.
* ChickMagnet: Not as much as Issei, but he does have girls falling in love with him, though he only has his eyes for Souna.
* DarkIsNotEvil: His power evokes dark flames. That said he's a pretty affable guy.
* {{Determinator}}: To the point where even the nigh-invincible Issei can become ''scared'' of him.
* EnergyAbsorption: How his Sacred Gear, Absorption Line, works.
* GroinAttack: Koneko hits him there while playing dodgeball in episode 7.
* SixthRanger: Whenever he joins the fights with the Gremory group.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: When Saji uses [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Vritra Promotion]], he turns into a berserker whom only Issei can control. So when it gets used during a Rating Game, [[ThisIsGonnaSuck and without Issei to tame it...]]
* TookALevelInBadass: Constantly. [[spoiler: And then he gets his very own [[PowerArmor Balance Breaker]].]]
* WeakButSkilled: Vritra is described as the weakest of the Five Dragon Kings, but nevertheless has a wide array of techniques Saji uses to become Team Sitri's ace in the hole.

!!Tsubasa Yura
->'''Role:''' Rook

Souna's imposing Rook.
* {{Bifauxnen}}: So Issei claims.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DirtForcefield: She's attracted to men who avert this. One of the reasons she ends up being attracted to Issei, though she knows not to let it escalate for [[ClingyJealousGirl obvious reasons]], is because he always ends up muddy after a fight.
* HugeSchoolgirl: The tallest member of the council.
* {{Tomboy}}
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!!Tomoe Meguri
->'''Role:''' Knight\\
'''Voiced by:''' Kiyono Yasuno (Japanese)
