Corona is a pop idol who is part of a group trying to destroy the world out of bitterness of losing her fame and very severe issues she had before that.

* GirlishPigtails
* IdolSinger: She's a pop idol, but her decaying fame has motivated her to join the Orochi.

* ArtistDisillusionment: InUniverse example. The reason why she joined Orochi was because the type of stories she originally liked didn't sell much, making her unable to make profit and reach for her dreams in the first place.

The Sixth Neck. She is a small CatGirl who is often seen wearing a nurse's outfit and wielding a giant syringe.

* GenkiGirl
* GirlWithPsychoWeapon: A cute little CatGirl in a nurse's outfit who attacks with a giant syringe the size of her body.

* PlayingWithSyringes: The flackback to her past shows the terrified cat girl in a laboratory, strapped to a chair and about to be experimented on...
* VerbalTic: "~nya!"

!!Souma Ogami
->Voiced by: Creator/JunjiMajima (JP), Creator/SteveStaley (EN)

Himeko's childhood friend who is as popular at school as Chikane, which is why most of their fellow students believe he and Chikane are dating.
