'''Height/Weight:''' 168cm/57kg]]

The protagonist of the manga - [[CharacterTitle pretty obvious given his name is in the title]] - he was a member of the Generation of Miracles team in his middle school days. Together with Kagami, he now aims to bring all of them down.

->Voiced by: Creator/KenshoOno
-----

* AffectionateNickname: Aomine calls him "Tetsu" and Momoi calls him "Tetsu-kun".
* AuthorAppeal: Fujimaki has stated in the most recent Kuro Fes interview that Kuroko is his "other self".
* BadassBookworm: Reading is his favorite hobby.
* BenchedHero:
** Due to the nature of his misdirection (it weakens the longer he stays on the court) and his stamina, he constantly has to be benched some time into the game.
** [[spoiler:In the match against Seihou. The secondary reason is so that he can save his energy for the next match against Shuutoku, the primary reason is that the seniors want to avenge their loss against Seihou themselves.]]
** Averted against [[spoiler:Touou though, as the weakening of his misdirection was required for Misdirection Overflow.]]
* BerserkButton: Yeah, he's apathetic most of time but insult or injure his sempais or friends... and you'd better watch out.
* BewareTheQuietOnes: The fact that he's always soft-spoken and polite does ''not'' mean that he never gets angry.
--> '''Aomine''': You're going to lose this game. The reason is simple: you made Tetsu angry.
* {{Bishonen}}: To a lesser degree than other players, as InUniverse his appearance is unremarkable, but he still shows signs of this.
* CharacterTitle: The manga is about him and his basketball style.
* TheChessmaster: ''Very'' subtly shown in the Kaijou and Kirisaki Daiichi Winter Cup match.
* ConfusionFu: His whole playstyle is based on confusing his opponents and disappearing from their view when they're looking at something else.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: He has both blue eyes and blue hair.
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique:
** His Misdirection Overflow is a non-lethal example. [[spoiler:Every time he uses this mode, Kuroko's misdirection (his main weapon) becomes less effective on everyone who's wacthing and ''completely uneffective'' on the team he's playing against]].
** During the game against Rakuzan it turns out [[spoiler:Vanishing Drive and Phantom Shot also took a toll on Kuroko's misdirection.]]
* DavidVersusGoliath: When Kagami is in trouble, Kuroko often takes the burden of facing other members of the Generation of Miracles himself. Special mention goes to when he [[spoiler:defends man-to-man against Murasakibara, the center of the Generation of Miracles and the largest basketball player in the manga]].
* DeadpanSnarker: He likes to provoke Kagami while not losing his [[TheStoic Stoic]] appearance.
%% * EvenTheGuysWantHim
* FantasticallyIndifferent: While he certainly does have emotions, he rarely lashes out and is considerably more reserved and expressionless than his friends. You wouldn't be able to notice a change to anger or surprise just based on expression alone.
* {{Foil}}: To HotBlooded Kagami.
* TheGadfly: He claims to not have a sense of humor, but there are times when he messes with other people just for the hell of it. In one hilarious example, he lies during his portion of the "How long have you been there"/"I've been here the whole time" RunningGag, as it's obvious that this time he only just arrived.
* HighHopesZeroTalent: Kuroko was initially this when he was at Teikou, where despite being terrible at the game, he continued playing because of his love for basketball. Subverted later on when he gains his skill of misdirection.
* HyperAwareness:
** His misdirection skill requires him to observe his opponent's body language and habits in order to make it effective. [[spoiler: This also becomes crucial in winning the second Kaijou match, where he completely predicts ''all of Kise's moves''.]]
** This is even more notable when it's about Kuroko's teammates. Having played with them for a long while, he can predict their moves [[spoiler:better than Akashi]].
* ItOnlyWorksOnce: [[spoiler:If Kuroko uses his Misdirection Overflow on a team, he'll never be able to use misdirection again on that particular team, as they'll be able to see right through him]].
* JapanesePronouns: Uses ''boku'', in keeping with his [[{{Keigo}} manner]].
* MeaningfulName: His name is also the name of stagehands in Japanese theater (kabuki) who dress in black and are supposed to be perceived as invisible by the audience.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: All of his abilities rely upon his "Misdirection", which is treated as almost like a supernatural resource instead of a social phenomenon.
%% * MusclesAreMeaningless: {{Subverted}}. Has them but is rather weak.
* TheNicknamer: [[CrowningMomentofFunny Only one instance, but very notable]].
--> '''Riko:''' His name is Papa Mbaye Siki.
--> '''Hyuuga:''' That Papa Nbai ... what was it?
--> '''Kagami:''' Papa Nba...
--> '''Riko:''' Kuroko! Find a nickname for this guy!
--> '''Kuroko:''' *thinks* 'Papa.' .... Dad.
* TheNondescript: His ability is a weaponized version of "being ignored": his misdirection skills gives him an advantage in steals, and his assists become nigh unpredictable. But even off-court, his teammates tend to forget he's there.
* NoSenseOfHumor: Claims so, but that might actually be a part of his brand of humor.
* OddFriendship: With his {{Foil}} Kagami, and with Aomine in the past.
* OddNameOut: He's the only member of the Generation of Miracles whose hair and eyes aren't the same color as his name.
* RedOniBlueOni: With Kagami. If you can't tell who's who, it's... ColourCodedForYourConvenience
* SixthRanger: Because of the nature of his basketball, he tends to be this.
* SpockSpeak: He tends to speak very calmly and [[{{Keigo}} politely]]. [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness When he breaks out of it...]]
* StealthHiBye: People tend not to notice when he enters a room, or even when he's been there for hours.
* TheStoic: Part of his basketball style, as he needs to mantain his [[TheNondescript Nondescript]] appearance.
** NotSoStoic: From time to time, mostly during crucial matches.
* SupportingProtagonist: In every sense of the word.
* TeamSpirit: His personal philosophy when it comes to basketball.
* TokenGoodTeammate: To the Generation of Miracles.
* TookALevelInBadass:
** In the beginning, he really was the "shadow" of the group. He is crucial to the game but doomed to remain in the background. With his development of the Vanishing Drive and the Phantom Shot, he has played an even bigger part in gameplay rather than just circulating passes. In one of the recent chapters, [[spoiler:he managed to score a buzzer beater]], something he never thought he would be able to do.
** {{Subverted}} during the Rakuzan game: it turns out [[spoiler: all the Levels in Badass he has taken have made him stand out, thus weakening his only ''real'' weapon, his misdirection]].
* UncattyResemblance: Tetsuya #2, the TeamPet.
* WeakButSkilled: He doesn't have the talent or the build for basketball, but because of his highly refined and practiced skill at misdirection, he was able to achieve the status of the "Phantom Sixth Player" of the legendary Generation of Miracles. The other genius members of the team also acknowledge his skills, which is definitely saying something considering how arrogant all of them are.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: A particularly explicit example, considering he manages to have light blue hair and yet go ''completely unnoticed'', not only in everyday life, but during basketball games, when there are only nine other people besides him on the court. WordOfGod states that he inherited his odd hair color and weak presence from his mother. His father [[MeaningfulName appropriately has black hair]].

[[WMG: Taiga Kagami]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kagami_1_4460.png

[[quoteright:250:'''Position:''' Power Forward\\
'''Height/Weight:''' 190cm/82kg]]

An extraordinary basketball player, he lived in the United States until partway through middle school. Upon returning, he finds himself disappointed at the level of basketball in Japan. After learning about the Generation of Miracles, he makes it his goal to take them down with the help of Kuroko.

->Voiced by: Creator/YukiOno
-----
* TheAce: He's the best Seirin player when it comes to scoring and one-on-one matches.
* AnimalMotifs: "Taiga" = Japanese romanji for "Tiger".
* AwesomeMcCoolname: In Japanese, his name translates to "Fire God Tiger".
* BigEater: Eats at least thirty hamburgers in one go. Multiple times. Finished X number of 4kg super prime steaks in thirty minutes, wherein X = the number of Seirin basketball players.
* BookDumb: Unbelievably so. Even his English grades are terrible, despite being a fluent speaker. (This is somehow {{Justified}}, as most kids in school don't even pay attention that much to learning proper grammar).
* BrutalHonesty: This often makes him come across as quite rude, especially at the beginning.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: He has reddish hair and eyes.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[Anime/SlamDunk Hanamichi Sakuragi]]. Just look at the tropes after {{Foil}}. Even his jersey number and special ability are similar.
* {{Foil}}: To [[TheStoic Kuroko]].
* HairTriggerTemper: He gets somewhat better as the plot goes on, but it's still a continuing issue for him.
* TheHero: In regards to his place on the Seirin team. In terms of plot significance, he's more of a {{Deuteragonist}}.
* FieryRedhead: He's a HotBlooded LightningBruiser with red hair.
* HotBlooded: Especially at the beginning, when he tends to throw himself at problems instead of listening to his more reasonable teammates.
%% * {{Hunk}}
* IdiotHero: Very notable when his teammates discover his grades.
* InASingleBound: His biggest talent.
* LightningBruiser: He's both the fastest and the physically strongest (or second strongest) of his team.
* MrFanservice: There are a lot of scenes where he's shirtless or naked.
* MeaningfulName: His name's [[UsefulNotes/JapaneseWritingSystem kanji]] are literally "Fire God Big Ego"
* MinorLivingAlone: The reason he can cook so well.
* MulticoloredHair: The crown of his head is dark red but everything beneath it is off-black.
* NaiveNewcomer: Well not to the sport of basketball, but he is one to the Japanese high school basketball circuit. He doesn't know many of the players from the other teams that Kuroko and the rest know from playing basketball in middle school. More often than not, he's the one asking who's who, prompting someone else on the team to reply him and the audience.
* TheNoseKnows: Claims that he can typically discern his opponents' strength based on their smell. Kuroko strikes him as odd, therefore, because he has no scent at all.
-->'''Kagami (to [[TheNondescript Kuroko]]):''' I can guess the strength of an opponent to some extent. It's like strong guys have a peculiar smell about them. ...But you're weird. Even though you should reek of weakness... you don't smell like anything at all. Your strength is odorless.
* OddFriendship: With Kuroko.
* RealMenCook: [[AllThereInTheManual The character bible]] says one of his hobbies is cooking and he taught Riko how to cook some simple dishes before their training camp.
* RealMenWearPink: The character bible mentions how he likes to shop as well.
* RedHeadedHero: He's TheHero of his team, and a FieryRedhead.
* RedOniBlueOni:
** Him and Kuroko. If you can't tell who's who, it's ColourCodedForYourConvenience.
** Also the Red to Himuro's Blue; again, the names are a clue (Kagami means "Fire God" while "Hi" in Himuro means "Ice Chamber")
* TigerVersusDragon: "Taiga" means "Tiger" while "Tatsu" means "Dragon".
* UnusualEyebrows: Of the fiery and forked kind.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes:
** Doesn't turn out well for him when Kuroko decides to adopt a dog as a TeamPet, since he is terrified by dogs.
** In the light novel, it's revealed that he's also afraid of ghosts and he's scared shirtless by the classic 'flashlight-from-below' trick by Kuroko.

[[WMG: Riko Aida]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Riko_1_4340.png

->Voiced by: Creator/ChiwaSaito

* AwesomenessByAnalysis: She knows a person's physical statistics just by looking at their bodies.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Her interactions with Hyuuga can be interpreted as this.
* BrainyBrunette: Riko not only had the best school test scores among the team, but she also ranked 2nd out of the ''whole school.''
* CordonBleughChef: ''Vitamins and protein powder'' go into the meals she makes for the team. With [[RealMenCook Kagami's]] assistance, her meals look fine, but taste is a [[LethalChef completely different matter]]...
%% * CoolBigSis

* EveryGirlIsCuterWithHairDecs: She always wears these.

* LethalChef: She doesn't cut up ''any'' of the ingredients, preferring to simply dump everything together in a pot. And she sprinkles the rice she serves the basketball team with vitamin pills and protein powder.
* {{Shorttank}}: Her typical outfit.
* SupportingLeader: She's the one who trains the main characters and leads the team.
* TeamMom: Especially towards TheCaptain Hyuga and the injured Kiyoshi.

* JapaneseDelinquents: What he attempted to be in his first year of highschool. Didn't last long.

%% * TheLancer
* {{Megane}}: {{Subverted}}. Despite wearing glasses and being a shooter, he's one of the most HotBlooded of the team and has average grades. Kagami points it out.
* SplitPersonality: A very mild example. During important moments he actually becomes ''more'' confident and precise, but he also starts insulting more or less everybody who talks to him.
* SupportingLeader: Despite being TheCaptain of the team, he's not the main character.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With CloudCuckooLander Kiyoshi.

[[WMG: Shun Izuki]]

'''Height/Weight:''' 174cm/64kg]]

Seirin's primary point guard. He knew Hyuuga in middle school. He started playing basketball in 2nd grade, the earliest of anyone in the Seirin team.

* ChickMagnet: In Seirin. Though they always run away when he [[PungeonMaster starts telling jokes.]]
* OnlySaneMan: Despite his PungeonMaster tendencies, he's this for his team.
* PungeonMaster: He ''really'' likes horrible puns. Hyuga often threatens to hit him.
* TheSmartGuy: Very notable during the game against Rakuzan, where he manages to outsmart his opponent when he can't defeat him with skill.
* StealthPun: Tries to put a couple of those everytime he can.
* TopDownView: His Eagle's Eye allows him to "see" from this perspective, an ability he puts to good use in matches.
* WeakButSkilled: He's not physically gifted or superhumanly skilled, but he uses his Eagle's Eye to make plays no-one else could.

[[WMG: Rinnosuke Mitobe]]
[[quoteright:250:'''Position:''' Center\\
'''Height/Weight:''' 186cm/78kg]]

A hook-shooter. He never speaks in-series, though the other 2nd years seem to be able to [[SilentBob understand what he's saying through expression alone]]. Nevertheless, he gives off the impression of a NiceGuy.

-----
* TheBigGuy: Before being replaced by Kiyoshi, he's the starting center.
* NiceGuy: Despite never saying anything, he's shown to be caring and considerate. It's implied he developed this personality caring for his many younger siblings.
* TheReliableOne: He's the one who keeps playing normally when his teammates are upset.
* TheStoic: When things get hard, he... keeps being silent and nice.
* TeamChef: The energy food he prepares for the team is absolutely way more effective than of [[LethalChef Riko's]].
* TheVoiceless: Sometimes leads to being the SilentBob. Especially notable that in the anime he has ''[[http://myanimelist.net/character/22252/Rinnosuke_Mitobe no voice actor.]]''

[[WMG: Shinji Koganei]]
[[quoteright:250:'''Position:''' Forward\\
'''Height/Weight:''' 170cm/67kg]]

A JackOfAllStats, he started playing basketball in high school because he thought it looked cool. He's been friends with Mitobe since middle school.

->Voiced by: Creator/TakuyaEguchi
-----
* ButtMonkey: He's often the one who comically misses a shot or says the wrong thing.
* CatSmile: Constantly.
%% * TheChick
* {{Expy}}: At least physically, he looks very similar to an older [[FlameOfRecca Kaoru]] [[NamesTheSame Koganei]].
* JackOfAllTrades: And also MasterOfNone. He doesn't specialize in any specific basketball technique but he isn't particularly weak in any either. Also presents itself in his grades, where he's slightly above average for all his subjects.
* TheNicknamer: He likes to give nicknames to his teammates, most prominently Tsuchida who is nicknamed "Tsucchi". He is also the one who named Kuroko's dog, Tetsuya #2.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Mitobe, due to the fact that Koganei is the only one who can understand him perfectly, and often translates for the rest of the team.

[[WMG: Satoshi Tsuchida]]
[[quoteright:250:'''Position:''' Power Forward\\
'''Height/Weight:''' 176cm/70kg]]

TheGenericGuy of the Seirin 2nd years. He specializes in rebounds.

->Voiced by: Creator/GoInoue
-----
* DemotedToExtra: Not that he was ever that important to begin with, but as the plot goes on, it's very easy to forget that he's one of the Seirin regulars.
* EyesAlwaysShut: His only notable feature.
* TheGenericGuy: He never gets a chance to actually show his character.

[[WMG: Teppei Kiyoshi]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/teppei_kiyoshi_2430.png

[[quoteright:250:'''Position:''' Center\\
'''Height/Weight:''' 193cm/81kg]]

Founder of the Seirin basketball club. Seirin's former ace, and one of the Uncrowned Generals. His extremely large hands allow him to hold the basketball as a handball, allowing him to use skills such as the Right of Postponement, and later Vice Claw. While the main centre for Seirin, he's also capable as a point guard, allowing him to combine both positions and create his own play style. [[spoiler:He suffered a GameBreakingInjury at the hands of Hanamiya, and the injury is bad enough to force him to have to retire after this year's Winter Cup.]]

->Voiced by: KenjiHamada
-----
* TheAce: For Seirin, pre-GameBreakingInjury.
* AmbiguousInnocence: He acts like a CloudCuckooLander, but Hyuga is sure that he's always scheming something.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: He's a ''very'' good player, but he really doesn't like to take himself seriously.
* CareerEndingInjury: [[spoiler:This Winter Cup will be his last.]]
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Let's have some fun~"
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: It may be partly ObfuscatingStupidity, as an act to make his teammates feel at home.
* ConfusionFu: His Right of Postponement. It's even said that it's meaningless to predict his moves, because he can change his movements at the last minute.
* GameBreakingInjury: His knee is the reason why he doesn't appear until Voulme 7.
* {{Keet}}: Very much during his first year, though he's toned it down in the present.
* LightningBruiser: Despite being a center, he's not noticeably slow.
* ThePollyanna: His injury hasn't affected his disposition. Also, this is the reason why he's known as [[RedBaron "Iron-Hearted"]]: every time he gets broken mentally, he quickly bounces back as if nothing's happened.
* RaisedByGrandparents: Used to explain why he's attending a school that doesn't have a basketball club at first; his grandparents are getting old and it was close by.
* RedBaron: One of the five Uncrowned Generals, "Iron-Heart".
* TakeAThirdOption: Couldn't decide whether to become a center or a PG, and ended up doing both.
* TeamDad: Occasionally with elements of PapaWolf, as demonstrated in the match against Kirisaki Daiichi. Has shades of TheLancer to [[TheCaptain Hyuuga]] too.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Hyuuga. Kiyoshi always acts friendly towards him, but he ''has'' to know that [[TheGadfly this only aggravates Hyuuga even more]].
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: The light novel reveals that he's terrified of rats after watching a horror movie about mutant rats.

[[WMG: Tetsuya #2]]

Kuroko's small pet husky pup and Seirin's mascot.

* CanineCompanion: to Kuroko.
* EvilDetectingDog: To some extent. When Momoi tried to pet him, he turned his head away from her hand in a huff.
* PreciousPuppy: He's an adorable little pooch.
* TeamPet: After Kagami warms up to him, everybody on the team adores him.
* UncattyResemblance: To his master, Kuroko.

[[quoteright:250:'''Position:''' Small Forward\\
'''Height/Weight:''' 189cm/77kg]]

A former member of the Teikou Middle School Basketball Team, another member of the Generation of Miracles. He was the last to join the GOM, and acknowledged to be the weakest among the main five [[spoiler:(at least, prior to his Perfect Copy)]]. That said, being the weakest member of the GOM doesn't mean he can't [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomp]] everyone else. He was the first of the GOM to be introduced.

->Voiced by: Creator/RyoheiKimura
-----
* TheAce: For Kaijou High.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: In the official fanbook, the author himself says he believes Anime!Kise is a little "too soft" compared to his manga counterpart, who according to [[WordOfGod Fujimaki]] is [[http://krbstokka.tumblr.com/post/104327951677/kuro-fes-interview-fujimaki-sensei-talks-the more cold-hearted and only affable to those he acknowledges.]]
* AffectionateNickname: Momoi calls him "Ki-chan".
* AllYourPowersCombined: [[spoiler:His Perfect Copy copies all the GOM's abilities, the abilities which he couldn't copy before, including Kuroko's.]]
* AntagonistAbilities: [[spoiler:By copying Akashi's Emperor Eye, he can basically steal the ball from anyone at any time as long as he is in Perfect Copy mode]].
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: The true source of his copying abilities.
%% * {{Badass}}
* BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame: Kise has a tendency to do this by combining his PowerCopying skill with his outstanding physical abilities.
* BenchedHero: [[spoiler:Has to sit out much of the rematch against Seirin due to his GameBreakingInjury.]]
* {{Bishonen}}: Acknowledged InUniverse, where he even works as a model and flocks of fangirls follow him wherever he goes.
* ButtMonkey: His teammates seem to love mistreating him, at least partly due to envy for his popularity and ChickMagnet status.
* ColorFailure: After being pulled into the top tier of Teiko's basketball club, Kise reacts in this manner upon seeing Kuroko, his mentor, completely miss an unguarded layup.
* ChickMagnet: He's acknowledged as ''extremely'' good looking InUniverse, and he's also casually good at everything he does.
* CreatorBacklash: In the most recent Kuro Fes interview where Fujimaki gave comments on certain characters; he purposefully writes Kise on the [[ButtMonkey "losing end"]] of things and says he's an outlet of jealousy he has against [[{{Bishonen}} Ikemen]].
%% * CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DopeSlap: [[ButtMonkey Frequently a recipient of this]], courtesy of [[TheCaptain Kasamatsu]].
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Kise has a more effeminate face in comparison to others, with his {{Bishounen}} good looks, thinner frame, piercing, and long eyelashes; it's possible the only reason he hasn't been mistaken for a girl is due to how tall he is.
* DumbBlonde: Sometimes has shades of this. He's not really stupid, though, just extremely {{Keet}}.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: Despite his ButtMonkey status, he's probably the Generation of Miracles member that goes along the best with his new teammates. His light-hearted personality helps.
* EvilCounterpart: He has one in Haizaki and notably replaced him as a Teikou first-string regular.
* FacePalm: When he first gets to know the Generation of Miracles, this is his general reaction.
* GameBreakingInjury: [[spoiler:Suffers one inflicted by Haizaki, which affects him in his next match against Seirin. Doesn't stop his Perfect Copy though.]]
* HeterosexualLifePartners:
** He's very close to the captain of his team, Kasamatsu.
** During his Teiko years, he and Aomine were exceptionally close and after Aomine's CharacterDevelopment in the Winter Cup, they're building it back up.
** Thought he was this with Kuroko when they were in Teikou, only for Kuroko to firmly deny this.
* HourOfPower: [[spoiler:His Perfect Copy is said to last only 5 minutes due to the strain it puts on his body. He manages to stretch it for an extra 2 minutes in the rematch against Seirin, probably because he spent most of the match on the bench because of his injury.]]
* {{Keet}}
* ManlyTears: Due to his emotional nature, he often cries during dramatic moments. [[spoiler: Like when Kaijo lost their Interhigh match against Tōō.]]
* MrFanservice: He usually has an energetic and positive personality.
* TheNicknamer: He adds "cchi" to the end of the names of people he's acknowledged, whether they want him to or not.
* PowerCopying :
** He has the ability to copy any basketball move he sees and make it his own.
** His ability works with skills outside of basketball, too, as the light novels showed us him copying a kid playing DDR. In fact, this is deconstructed as he quickly gets bored of whatever he does, because he learns things so quickly. Reconstructed when he joins the basketball team and finally finds someone whose ability he can't copy easily (Aomine).
* TerribleArtist: WordOfGod states that he's terrible at drawing.
* OnlySaneMan: Kise is this upon befriending the ...eccentric group known as the Generation of Miracles. (He soon grows into their antics, of course.)
* SixthRanger: The last to join the Teikou basketball team's Generation of Miracles.
* VerbalTic: Ends several of his sentences with "-ssu".

* FlashStep: [[spoiler: Izuki had to develop Eagle Spear to be able to steal the ball from him.]]
* FragileSpeedster: Fastest player outside of the Generation of Miracles despite not being particularly tall or built.

* AlwaysAccurateAttack: His shooting accuracy is 100%. His range is the ''entire court''.
* AntagonistAbilities: He doesn't need to out-play his opponents most of the time. He can fire a three-pointer from anywhere on the court, meaning that even if you go basket-for-basket with him, as long as you're scoring from the inside, he can still out score you.
* {{Badass}}: Shoots full-court shots and is confident enough to turn around before it even reaches the net? Definitely a badass.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo:
** PlayedWith. On one hand, he diligently follows horoscopes and often talks about how a victory or a loss was predetermined. On the other hand, his philosophy is that destiny will help you only ''after'' you have done everything you possibly can.
** He also distances himself from Kuroko, saying that they naturally do not get along due to their conflicting bloodtypes.
* BornLucky:
** Or it could just be due to his devotion to horoscopes. Outside of his claims that it helps his ImprobableAimingSkills a lot, he always wins at games of chance such as jan-ken-pon (rock-paper-scissors) and coin flips, and his lucky pencil die? He lent it to Kagami and Kagami proceeds to score ''98%'' in a multiple choice test in a subject he was failing!
** In the novels he gets an unlucky day when he's rendered unable to follow his usual procedures to keep his luck high, so it could very well be the latter.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: The whole horoscope bit. He checks his horoscope everyday, buys and carries his daily lucky item around him without fail and makes sure no one messes with it. But he's this trope because he's a ''phenomenally'' good shooter, and even does things like tape his fingers off the court to protect them, believing even the slightest injury can throw his shots off.
--> '''[[TheCaptain Ootsubo]]:''' I guess it's fine since the coach asked me to forgive three of your whims everyday.
* ButtMonkey: While verbally smacking down Kagami, an okonomiyaki lands ''on his head''. He is visibly mortified.
* {{Catchphrase}}:
** "Since I have my daily lucky item, I cannot possibly lose."
** "Man proposes, God disposes."
** Kise remarks that he has a funny accent, as he ends many of his sentences with the phrase "Nanodayo". A close English counterpart could be "As it should be perfectly obvious."
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Despite being [[TheComicallySerious comically serious]] and [[TallDarkAndSnarky snarky]], Midorima is very... eccentric, to say the least. He religiously listens to his daily horoscope and carries around every lucky item of the day, no matter how ridiculous. Case in point: one of the daily lucky items is a frog hand-puppet. ...With his back turned to Kise, he ''wears'' the hand-puppet, and while the frog puppet 'dances', he continues his conversation in his normal, serious tone (despite talking about zodiac signs, of all things).
* TheComicallySerious: He's always completely and utterly serious, especially when he's doing something that other people find ridiculous.
* CrypticConversation: Diverts conversation topics and rarely gives direct answers.
--> '''Kise:''' Akashi? Who's that?
--> '''Midorima:''' You'll know in due time.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow:
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Takao. [[{{Tsundere}} He won't admit it, though.]]
* ImprobableAimingSkills:
** His shots always go in. And they have a ridiculously high arc, which takes a lot of calculation.
** Brings this trope to an insane extreme with his ability to hit ''objects in motion''—while in middle school, he shot a box of popsicle sticks at a purse-snatcher who was ''riding away on a scooter''.
* InsufferableGenius: Has unbelievable long-distance shooting skills, in the eyes of his past and current teammates, marginally compensate for his rather grating personality.
* LethalChef: WordOfGod states that Midorima is terrible at cooking.
* LikesOlderWomen: [[AllThereInTheManual The character bible]] mentions this.
* LongRangeFighter: His speciality is long range three-point shooting.
* ManlyTears: [[spoiler:After Shuutoku loses to Rakuzan.]]
* ObliviousToLove: Not a case in which he is the recipient, but he is completely unaware of Momoi's completely obvious crush on Kuroko until Kise informs him.
--> '''Kise:''' What? You didn't know? It was obvious! She was all over him every day! You'd have to be a monkey to see them and not realize!
* OnlySaneMan: In spite of his own quirks, he sometimes plays this role in the Generation of Miracles group.
* PaperThinDisguise: Part of his {{Tsundere}} schtick. He shows up to watch his friends' games while donning a pair of sunglasses. Each time he is hilariously under the impression that his disguise works, so when people recognize him, he is genuinely surprised.
* PersonalityBloodTypes: A firm believer in blood type personalities. Claims that he, a blood type B, does not get along with Kuroko, a blood type A.
* TheSouthpaw: He shoots with his left hand.
* StoicSpectacles: Except for his [[CloudCuckooLander quirks]], he's the typical "smart and stoic guy with glasses".
* TallDarkAndSnarky: He's ''very'' snarky, especially [[{{Tsundere}} towards people he likes]].
* {{Tsundere}}: Takao even says as much.
--> '''Kise:''' You told everyone that you didn't want to see the game, but you came anyway?
--> '''Midorima:''' Don't say that! I just happened to be in the area!
--> '''Kise:''' ...Your house isn't anywhere near here.
* UnblockableAttack: You can't block his shots unless you have an [[InASingleBound insane jumping ability]] or [[spoiler:a reaction that's fast enough to stop his shots even before they start]].
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: He has unrealistic green hair.
* VerbalTic: He adds "-nanodayo" to the end of his sentences. Several characters point out that it's pretty strange.

* ButtMonkey: Frequently drives Midorima around on a rickshaw. Seems to not totally mind when Midorima pushes and orders him around.
* TheGadfly: When he and Midorima arrive at an restaurant and spot Kagami, Kuroko, Kise, and Kasamatsu at a table, he immediately lights up and tells Kasamatsu that he admires him and wishes to hear his stories. He then pulls him away, allowing for Midorima to take Kasamatsu's seat at what becomes the world's most awkward table setting.
--> '''Kasamatsu:''' You wanted this to happen, didn't you?

The former ace of the Teikou Middle School Basketball Team, he's a member of the Generation of Miracles. Acknowledged to be the best one-on-one basketball player among the six. He was close to Kuroko even before Kuroko became a member of the GOM, taking the time to train Kuroko despite Kuroko being only a third-string basketball player then. He was the third GOM member to be introduced.

->Voiced by: Creator/JunichiSuwabe
-----
* TheAce: He was considered the Ace of the Generation of Miracles, making him the Ace of Aces.
* AffectionateNickname: Momoi calls him "Dai-chan".
* AmbiguouslyBrown: His skin is noticeably darker than other characters'.
* BrilliantButLazy: {{Subverted}}. At the beginning he prefers to sleep on the rooftop than go to basketball practice and often shows up for matches at the halfway mark... if he bothers to show up at all. However, he was originally passionate about basketball and worked hard at it because he loved it. But as he got better and better, his opponents starting giving up more and more easily. Eventually, he gave up on being serious about basketball, because there was no one who could equal him at it.
* BrokenAce: He started liking basketball less and less as his talent growed to the point that nobody could oppose him. At the beginning of the story he just goes through the motion, hoping he'll find a WorthyOpponent that can make him enjoy the sport again.
* CatchPhrase: "The only one who can win against me ... is me!"
* CovertPervert: Not an outright lech, but in the [[AllThereInTheManual Character Bible]], he lists his type of woman as 'big-breasted', and his hobby is 'looking at gravure idols'.
* ChildhoodFriends: With Momoi, the only person who can stand him in his JerkAss moments.
* CurbStompBattle: Most games he participates in become this in short order. During middle school, he actually ''yelled'' at his opponents to try harder and defeat him.
%% * CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* TheDreaded: Going against his team is considered a death sentence, especially after [[spoiler:Seirin's first defeat at his hands]].
* HeterosexualLifePartners:
** During his Teiko years, he was Kuroko's original "light" and they were very close even outside the court.
** He also became this with Kise. [[spoiler: It was noted that during the Touo vs Kaijou match, Aomine didn't go all out against Kise because he seems to still have a soft spot for him and during Winter Cup, he punches and knocks out Haizaki in order to protect Kise.]]
* HotGuysAreBastards: He's pretty good looking and ''extremely'' good at what he does, but he's also an InsufferableGenius and A JerkJock.
* InsufferableGenius: Is lazy and rarely shows up for practice, irritating some of his teammates. His captain consistently excuses his lackadaisical behavior because he is TheAce, and whatever helps the team win is a good thing.
--> '''Aomine:''' The only one who can defeat me is me.
* JerkJock: He often casually bullies his teammates and likes to humiliate his opponents, especially at the beginning.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He shows shades of this from the beginning, but firmly becomes this after his second game against Seirin.
* LightningBruiser: His speed and reflexes are his greatest weapons, but he's also strong enough that he can oppose Kagami.
* LonelyAtTheTop: Being so good at basketball that he can't enjoy playing it anymore caused his StartOfDarkness.
* MeaningfulName: His surname literally means "Blue Peak". The "blue" part follows the ColourfulThemeNaming of Teikou, when the "peak" part is his status as he's TheAce even back in Teikou.
* PlatonicLifePartners: If you don't interpret their interactions as BelligerentSexualTension, then he and Momoi are probably this.
* RedOniBlueOni:
** The Red to Kuroko's Blue.
** Inverted and ColorCodedForYourConvenience in Touou's match against Seirin, in which he becomes the [[SmugSnake Blue]] to Kagami's [[HotBlooded Red]].
* RuleOfCool:
** His style of basketball revolves around doing things that should not be possible, but are crazy cool.
** The anime depicts him as being capable of ''[[UpToEleven gymnastic flips]]'' on a normal day.
* SittingOnTheRoof: Where he can usually be found by Momoi when he skips basketball training.
* SlasherSmile: He's rather fond of these, especially when he finally finds a WorthyOpponent.

* BadAssDecay: Starts off just as good, maybe even better than Riko at noticing the skills and hidden potential of players just by looking at them. But overtime, as she and Aomine watch games together, she seems to completely lose this, resulting in Aomine explaining everything to her (and the audience).
* TheChick: She's the only girl in the Generation of Miracles. Since the manga revolves around boys' basketball, she helps them from outside the court.
* ChildhoodFriends: With Aomine.
* CoyGirlishFlirtPose: When she's around her crush Kuroko, she is [[http://static.minitokyo.net/downloads/42/05/612792.jpg coy and flirty]], and rarely aggressive.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Pink hair and eyes.
* CuteSportsClubManager: At Teiko and Touou.

* MeaningfulName: Her last name is a combination of the words 'pink' and 'management'.
* MsFanservice: Especially in her first appearance, where she shows up from nowhere in a swimsuit.
* FemininityFailure: Like Riko, she makes honey-soaked lemons to give to her team during the break of the match against Seirin. However, instead of slicing the lemons, which would allow for them to thoroughly soak in the honey, ''she leaves the lemons whole''. She is outdone by a male member on her team.
* LongHairIsFeminine: Part of her TomboyAndGirlyGirl relationship with Riko.

* RoseHairedSweetie: [[PinkGirlBlueBoy Some bonus points]] for her crush on the blue-haired Kuroko, and her childhood friendship relationship with Aomine.
* TheSmartGuy: Played this role in the Generation of Miracles and keeps playing it at Touou, helping player devise strategies for every opponent.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly girl to Aida's Tomboy.
* WalkingSwimsuitScene: Her first appearance, when she shows up from nowhere while Seirin is training at the pool.

* FourEyesZeroSoul: Fits this trope to a T as he likes to taunt, tease and otherwise {{Troll}} his opponents. Even [[{{Jerkass}} Hanamiya]] thinks he has a terrible personality.
* EyesAlwaysShut: Together with PerpetualSmiler, they show his dangerous personality.
* TheLeader: Definitely a mastermind-type leader.
* ManipulativeBastard: He loves playing mind games with his opponents.
* PerpetualSmiler: As appropriate for a {{Troll}} as big as this guy.
* SupportingLeader: He explicitely says that Aomine is TheAce of his team and can do whatever he wants as long as they win.

* ShrinkingViolet: A RareMaleExample.

->Voiced by: Creator/KenichiSuzumura
-----
* TheAce: He and Himuro are considered Yousen's two aces.
* BerserkButton: The opposition [[{{Determinator}} not giving up]] basketball despite not being good at it, or just implying that basketball is fun.
* BigEater: He's almost always seen with some sort of snack in hand.
* TheBigGuy: He's the center of the Generation of Miracles.
* BrilliantButLazy:
** {{Subverted}}. He finds basketball boring, but still trains very hard because he hates losing more than he hates practicing.
** PlayedStraight during the flashbacks: when the Generation of Miracles players' talents awakened, he was the first to propose they could just stop training and win anyway.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: His dunk ''bent the basketball hoop in two''. The match even had to be posponed to fix the damage!
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: He usually thinks more about the snacks he's eating than about what he's doing while eating them.
* CreepyShadowedUndereyes: Which are really emphasized when he gets annoyed.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Purple eyes and purple hair.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: [[spoiler:He actually enters the Zone in the last few seconds of the Seirin vs. Yousen match. It was still too late though.]]
* FaceFramedInShadow: Happens often when he gets [[BerserkButton pissed]], mainly because he enjoys looming over the people who have annoyed him.
* {{Foil}}: To Kuroko, the pint-sized WeakButSkilled {{Determinator}}.
* GeniusDitz: With his personality and build, no one would expect that he's not only talented in basketball, but academically too.

And scored 6th from top in his grade by ''barely reading Fukui's last year exam once''.
* TheGiant: He's noticeably taller than anyone else.
* HardWorkHardlyWorks: He's firm believer of this, and actively tries to break the will of whoever thinks otherwise.
* SheCleansUpNicely: Normally looks rather dishevelled, so it's quite a difference when he ties his hair back into a short ponytail.
* IAmNotLeftHanded: Prefers to lounge about in defense where he's pretty good, but he is a monster when he decides to go offensive - his scoring record is ''100 points'' in a single match.
* LightningBruiser: With empashis on the "bruiser" part, as his height and strenght are his best weapons. He's still way faster than you would expect.
* ManChild: When he's not on court. Even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Kuroko, who says that “when Murasakibara’s not playing basketball, he’s basically a kid with a screw loose”.
* ManlyTears: [[spoiler:After losing to Seirin.]]
* TheNicknamer: Shortens characters' names and adds "-chin" to the end of them. (e.g. Kuro-chin, Aka-chin, etc.)
* PurpleIsPowerful
* SweetTooth: People often bribe him with sweets when he doesn't want to do something.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Invoked this trope in Replace novel, [[http://40.media.tumblr.com/aa9782ee1f2065c4275547fa9c239025/tumblr_my5fkh4TRm1qgc68to2_500.jpg where he played a princess with a]] PimpedOutDress for his class in school festival. Also, the sentence he said to show his acting (which he purposefully raised his pitch to say so), and a pose to imply he's playing a tyrannical princess , seems to be a ShoutOut to Marie Antoinette.

* BeautyMark: Has one under his right eye.
* BigBrotherMentor: To Kagami, when they first met.
* {{Bishounen}}: Even more noticeable than other characters, partly because of his PeekABangs.
* CantCatchUp: [[spoiler: He's ''almost'' on par with the Generation of Miracles, but he's aware that he'll never be able to reach their level.]]
* ChickMagnet: UpToEleven! He's not just popular with high school girls, but with kindergartners and middle-aged women such as a cleaner from Yousen.
* FirstNameBasis: Calls Kagami and Murasakibara by their first names, "Taiga" and "Atsushi". Possibly due to his long stay in America.
* GreenEyedMonster: [[spoiler:He always resented that Kagami was the most talented of the two and would have eventually surpassed him.]]
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Kagami, pre-series.
* MeaningfulName: His name uses the kanji for ice (氷), the antithesis of fire (火), which is the kanji used in Kagami's name.
* PeekABangs
* RavenHairIvorySkin: His dark hair that frames [[PeekABangs a single eye]] and his fair skin imparts a mysterious aura. He is a huge ChickMagnet and is arguably the biggest {{bishounen}} in the series.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Blue to Kagami's Red. ("Himuro" means "Ice Chamber" while "Kagami" means "Fire God").
* SimpleYetAwesome: His playing style: highly refined orthodox moves. Noted to be the polar opposite of Aomine's.

[[quoteright:250:'''Position:''' Point Guard\\
'''Height/Weight:''' 173cm/64kg]]

Formerly the captain and point guard of the Teikou Middle School Basketball Team, he's the leader of the Generation of Miracles. He was the one who discovered Kuroko's ability of misdirection, and despite the fact that his team is filled with egocentric geniuses, they all listen to him. Evidenced by how the entire Generation of Miracles team turned up when he summoned them, and how Midorima [[ItMakesSenseInContext lent him his scissors]] while he refused to lend it to Murasakibara. He was the final GOM member to be introduced.

->Voiced by: Creator/HiroshiKamiya
-----
* TheAce: For Rakuzan High. Also, he states he has never lost at anyting in his entire life.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: His Emperor Eye lets him "see" what his opponents will do by istantly analyzin their small subconscious movements.
* AxCrazy: The first time he meets Kagami, he ''attacks him with scissors''. He later states he knew Kagami would have been able to dodge, but he still left a cut on Kagami's face.
* BadassBoast: "I am absolute. I can see the entirety of the future. It is but a simple matter to change it."
* TheCaptain: He managed to become the captain of Teikou's club during his second year, and he's the captain at Rakuzan during his ''first year''. And none of the older and more experienced players seem to mind.
* TheChessmaster: Naturally. Also, while we mainly see him playing shougi when he's not playing basketball, [[AllThereInTheManual he's also mentioned to play chess]].
* CombatClairvoyance: This is is special talent.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow:
** Partially subverted. While his hair and [[RedEyesTakeWarning right eye]] are red, his left is yellow-orange.
** Played completely straight back in middle school, when both his eyes were red. Until, of course, his power awakened.[[spoiler: The original personality comes back in the end, though.]]
* CrazyPeoplePlayChess: [[AllThereInTheManual The character book]] mentions that he also plays chess, though in-series we only see shougi. And he ''definitely'' is not the sanest person around, especially after he declares [[spoiler:that he would gouge out both his eyes if Rakuzan lost to Shuutoku.]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: He tries to stab Kagami with a pair of scissor for interrupting him.
* EvilRedhead: Being a sport manga he can't be truly evil, but he's ''very'' arrogant and ruthless.
* ExpectingSomeoneTaller: He is 173 cm which makes him the second shortest GOM member after Kuroko. When Furihata meets him, he is surprised that they're about the same height.
* TheFaceless: He's always shown from the back or the neck down. Even when he's face-to-face with the main characters, he has a FaceFramedInShadow. [[spoiler: His face is finally revealed at the end of chapter 113.]]
* FirstNameBasis: After [[spoiler:the other side of his SplitPersonality took over permanently]], he started calling his teammates at Teikou with their first names. They kept calling him by his last name, though.
* HellishPupils: His Emperor Eyes could easily be mistaken for the eyes of a demon.
* IAmNotLeftHanded:
** Takao is suitably horrified to realize [[spoiler:Akashi's been moving imperceptibly slower than he's actually capable of for the entire first half of the Rakuzan-Shuutoku match, simply to fool Takao's Hawk Eye.]]
** At the end of his match with Seirin, [[spoiler:his original personality returns and he develops his ''second'' special talent]].
* ImportantHaircut: In his first appearance, and by his own hand no less. At first, it serves to illustrate just how absolute Akashi is willing to be, [[spoiler: although after Teikou arc it could also show just how different Akashi had become.]]
* JapanesePronouns: Akashi's usage is especially worth noting: [[spoiler:in the first years of Teikou, before "blooming" he used ''ore'', as most other middle school boys do. After his blooming and the subsequent emergence of his SplitPersonality, he switches to ''boku''.]]
%% * KnightTemplar
%% * LargeAndInCharge: Subverted. Other than Kuroko, he's the shortest member of the GOM.
* TheLeader: A levelheaded mastermind. He somehow shows traces of the charismatic type, such as when he shoots in his own basket to shock his teammates out of their rut.
* MeaningfulName: Most characters have {{meaningful name}}s because of theme naming but Akashi takes the cake. His name emphasizes his absolute rule and control of the situation and people surrounding him. His family name uses the kanji '司', denoting ruler, and his first name uses the kanji '征' meaning conquer. '十郎' means 10 men, which is the total number of basketball players on the court. His full name basically means 'Red Ruler, Conqueror of Ten Men'.
* NoSenseOfHumor: According to [[AllThereInTheManual trivia]].
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: [[spoiler:When he first uses FirstNameBasis on Kuroko.]]
* RedHeadedHero: While in Teikou.
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:His face in chapter 113.]]
* SmartPeoplePlayChess: With shougi onscreen, but he's mentioned to play chess too. Might also be [[CrazyPeoplePlayChess Crazy People Play Shougi]].
%% * SmugSuper
* SplitPersonality: [[spoiler:Midorima suspected Akashi of having this. Akashi himself admits to Kuroko that he has this.]]
* SplitPersonalityTakeover: [[spoiler:Happened to him in the past, and happens again during the last game when his original personality gets back at the wheel.]]
* SuperpowerLottery: His Emperor Eye is generally regarded to be the most game-breaking ability of the GOM. [[spoiler:And if that wasn't enough, Midorima deduces that Akashi's original personality also has its own awakened ability, making Akashi the only member of the GOM to have ''two'' abilities.]]
* TheSocialDarwinist: Shows shades of this, mostly because of his education as heir of a noble house.
* SuperReflexes: [[spoiler: Thanks to his Emperor Eye and his intellect, he could single-handedly predict and destroy Shuutoku's team plays.]]
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: The side of him that isn't clearly crazy, anyway.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: [[spoiler:The [[SplitPersonality personality]] that showed traces of itself before he awakened his Emperor Eye and fully took over him after that, is noticeably crazier than the personality it took over.]]

[[WMG: Kotarou Hayama]]
[[quoteright:250:'''Position:''' Small Forward\\
'''Height/Weight:''' 180cm/68kg]]

One of the Uncrowned Generals. His ability is to dribble extremely fast, making the ball hard to steal.
-----

[[WMG: Reo Mibuchi]]
[[quoteright:250:'''Position:''' Shooting Guard\\
'''Height/Weight:''' 188cm/74kg]]

One of the Uncrowned Generals. He's implied to be good at drawing fouls, especially while shooting three-pointers, resulting in four-point plays. [[spoiler: This is just one of his abilities, called ''chi'' (earth). He can also shoot fade-away three-pointers, called ''ten'' (heaven), as well as a three-pointer shot he rarely uses, where the opponent is unable to move, called ''kokuu'' (void).]]
-----
* AmbiguouslyGay: He sometimes makes passes at his teammates or Hyuga, but he could be simply [[{{Troll}} Trolling them]].
* OnlySaneMan: Is usually the one to keep the other team members in check when their antics get too wild.

[[WMG: Eikichi Nebuya]]
[[quoteright:250:'''Position:''' Center [[spoiler:(Formerly power forward)]]\\
'''Height/Weight:''' 190cm/94kg]]

One of the Uncrowned Generals. While an extremely strong centre, his main skill is currently unknown. [[spoiler:[[UnskilledButStrong It turns out he has none; all he has is strength.]] In addition, he used to play as a power forward.]]
-----
* BigEater: Said to be able to eat more than even Kagami.
* HotBlooded: His solution to any problems is "put some ''more'' strength into it".
* InsultBackfire: Takes 'Muscle Gorilla' to be a compliment. [[spoiler:{{Justified|Trope}} because he believes strength to be everything.]]
* PermaStubble: Despite being an high-school student.

* StoutStrength: At least according to him, the more he [[BigEater eats]] before a match, the stronger he is during the match.
* UnskilledButStrong: He ditched skills for the sake of pure strength.
* WorthyOpponent: Considers Kiyoshi to be this. He considers their faceoff in the finals to be "fate".

[[WMG: [[spoiler:Chihiro Mayuzumi]]]]
[[quoteright:250:'''Position:''' Power forward\\
'''Height/Weight:''' 182cm/69kg]]

Rakuzan's 5th man. [[spoiler:A 3rd year. Has the same powers as Kuroko, but with enhanced base skills and strength as compared to Kuroko, so unlike the latter he can stay on the court for the entire game for two reasons: one is because he doesn't run out of stamina as easily, and two is because he doesn't overly rely on misdirection so it doesn't run out as fast.]]
----
* ConfusionFu: [[spoiler:Just like Kuroko, he uses misdirection to slip past defenders.]]
* HeroOfAnotherStory: [[spoiler:His story at Rakuzan mirrors Kuroko's at Teikou.]]
* NoNameGiven: It's only in chapter 231 that we see his full name.
* TheNondescript: [[spoiler:Just like Kuroko, this is part of his style]].
* NoSocialSkills: Rarely talks and doesn't respond when spoken to.
* {{Otaku}}: Reads LightNovels, and are the only the things that get him excited.
* OutOfFocus: Constantly, to RunningGag levels.
* WalkingSpoiler: To some degree. His existence is not a spoiler, but [[spoiler:his relevance ''is''.]]
* WeakButSkilled: [[spoiler:He's a better all-around player than Kuroko, but he's still this compared to the other Rakuzan regulars.]]

[[WMG: Makoto Hanamiya]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Hanamiya_9195.png

[[quoteright:250:'''Position:''' Point Guard\\
'''Height/Weight:''' 179cm/67kg]]

The captain and coach of the Kirisaki Daiichi team, and one of the Uncrowned Generals. Constantly uses underhanded methods and dirty tricks to win the game, but is also very skilled in his own right; his main skill is to steal the ball from his opponents. [[spoiler:Was the cause of Kiyoshi's GameBreakingInjury last year.]]

->Voiced by: Creator/JunFukuyama
-----
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Analysing the pass courses of his opponents allows him to steal virtually every ball from his opponents.
* TheCaptain: Also the coach.
* CatchPhrase: [[ILied "There's no way I'd say that, dumbass."]]
* CripplingTheCompetition: All the time. [[spoiler:In fact, he was the one who caused Kiyoshi's GameBreakingInjury.]]
* ILied: Every time he seems to say something nice, he follows up with this.
* JerkJock: Together with the rest of his team.
* NotCheatingUnlessYouGetCaught[=/=]TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty: His whole team. He doesn't deny it, though.
* RedBaron: One of the five Uncrowned Generals, "Bad Boy".
* TheSmartGuy: His IQ is over 160. [[spoiler:This doesn't stop Kuroko from outsmarting him, though.]]
* UnderestimatingBadassery: Due to his foul play, it's easy to forget that he's skilled enough to be considered one of the Uncrowned Generals.
* WorthyOpponent: Kiyoshi considers him one after their match after seeing his skills. Unlike most cases though, he doesn't take it well.

[[WMG: Shougo Haizaki]]

[[caption-width-right:140:Top: High school Haizaki. Bottom: Middle school Haizaki]]


[[quoteright:250:'''Position:''' Small Forward\\
'''Height/Weight:''' 188cm/78kg]]

A former regular of Teikou's first string who was kicked out for being too violent [[spoiler:(actually because Akashi predicted that Kise will eventually surpass him... or it could be both)]]. Kise replaced him on the team.

->Voiced by: Creator/MasakazuMorita
-----

* CantCatchUp: [[spoiler:After Kise surpasses him with Perfect Copy by using the GOM's moves, which Haizaki can't steal.]]
* CripplingTheCompetition: [[spoiler:Tries to do this to Kise after he realizes he can't win.]]
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Though not during his middle school years when his hair was grey instead of black.
* EvilCounterpart: Of Kise.
* FirstNameBasis: To everyone on his former team except [[LastNameBasis Akashi]].
* JapaneseDelinquents
* {{Jerkass}}: One of the biggest in the series, and even admits to Kuroko he is no nice guy. Taunts his opponents mercilessly, is violent even off-court, disrespectful towards his own teammates and is a SoreLoser to top it off.
* MeaningfulName : His surname literally means Grey Peninsula. The grey part is the ColourfulThemeNaming as he's also from Teikou, when the peninsula part means he's different with the other Teikou alumnus, as he was kicked out and later dyes his hair, like a peninsula that is the only bit of land surrounded by the vast ocean.
* PowerCopying: He has this ability just like Kise, but with slight variations.
* PowerParasite: He copies other player's moves but slightly alters its rhythm, so that when his victim sees the move being used, they are unable to use it anymore.
* SoreLoser: After being defeated by Kise, he [[spoiler: tries to beat him up outside the tournament gymnasium, though Aomine stops him]].
* UsedToBeASweetKid: While he was never a saint, he was slightly better (if lazy and petulant) in his earlier Teikou days; he even had shades of ComicRelief in his interactions with Nijimura. After Kise arrives and eventually replaces him, any trace of JerkWithAHeartOfGold Haizaki had goes off the window.

[[WMG: Shuuzo Nijimura]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/4f351875f8d088cdef6a0dcad7d56272.png


[[quoteright:250:'''Position:''' Power Forward\\
'''Height/Weight:''' ?]]

Teikou's team captain when the Generation of Miracles first joined, and later its vice-captain with Akashi. [[spoiler:He steps down in his second year because of familial problems, recommending Akashi take up the captain position fully.]]

-----
* {{Badass}}: This is the guy Haizaki of all people fears enough that he prefers to deal with ''Akashi'' instead of with Nijimura directly.
* BigBrotherMentor: Not strictly a mentor, but older than the Miracles and definitely kept them in line, holding their respect (or fear) while he was around.
* CantCatchUp: Realizes this, [[spoiler: and a partial reason as to why he cedes leadership to Akashi.]]
* TheCaptain: Of Teikou when the Miracles formed.
* JapaneseDelinquents: In his youth. According to trivia, he even stole a ''motorcycle'' once. He still retains his fighting skills from those days.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Has a short temper and shades of JapaneseDelinquent in manner and speech, but usually means well with most of his actions.
* MeaningfulName: His surname can be interpreted as 'the gathering of the rainbow'. Literally it means "Rainbow Village"
* SupportingLeader: [[spoiler:Until he cedes the leadership to Akashi, although even then he keeps careful watch over the first-string from the sidelines until his graduation.]]

[[WMG: Alexandra Garcia]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/13932f1acad11d8e6a4874d99b41758d.png

A former college basketball champion and WNBA player who is now a basketball coach. She was Himuro and Kagami's basketball mentor from the States.

----
* AffectionateNickname: Kagami and Himuro only call her "Alex".
* CoolTeacher: A basketball coach that also happens to have been a WNBA player is already pretty darn cool. Add to it that Alex has many CoolBigSis traits and is also implied to be skilled in fighting and there you have it.
* BuxomIsBetter: ''G-cup''. They're pretty darn huge, even extrapolated to american sizes and especially for a pro athlete.
* EccentricMentor: Has no problem walking naked around her students and even greets them with kisses. And not just them, as [[LesYay Riko]] can attest.
* FirstNameBasis: With Kagami and Himuro, her students.
* GameBreakingInjury: Her eyesight deteriorated from an unspecified disease, enough to force her to early retirement.
* {{Meganekko}}
* RetiredBadass: She is a WNBA retiree, after all. Plus she knows some self-defense.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: She seems to not care at all about guys seeing her walking around her home (OK, it's ''Kagami''[='s=] apartment, but she seems to treat it as home anyway) in her underwear or even practically naked, not even complete strangers like Kagami's Seirin teammates the first time they met her. Kagami actually has to '''yell''' at her to [[PleasePutSomeClothesOn wear clothes]], usually punctuated by him ''throwing'' said clothes at her.
