[[quoteright:250:'''Position:''' ?\\
'''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".
* 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: See above.
--> '''Aomine:''' This game...you're going to lose. You made Tetsu angry.
* CharacterTitle
* TheChessmaster: '''''Very, very''''' subtly shown in the Kaijou and Kirisaki Daiichi Winter Cup match.
* ConfusionFu
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique[=/=]ItOnlyWorksOnce: [[spoiler:A non-lethal example. Not only will Misdirection Overflow work only once on any team, misdirection itself, Kuroko's ''main weapon'', will also no longer work on that team in future matches. In fact, misdirection will also be less effective on other teams spectating.]]
** [[spoiler:It turns out Vanishing Drive and Phantom Shot also took a toll on his misdirection.]]
* DavidVersusGoliath: Consistently takes the burden of facing other members of the Generation of Miracles on himself when it's too much for Kagami. [[spoiler: Special mention goes to Kuroko man-to-man guarding Murasakibara, the single largest basketball player in the manga thus far, considered to be very nearly the equal of Aomine, and ''twice Kuroko's size.'' '''And Kuroko wins.''']]
* DeadpanSnarker: See NoSenseOfHumor and TheGadfly.
* 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 Kagami.
* TheGadfly: Related to NoSenseOfHumor below. 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 with 99% accuracy'''''.]]
* 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...]]
--> '''Riko:''' His name is Papa Mbaye Siki.
--> '''Hyuuga:''' That Papa Nbai ... what was it?
--> '''Kagami:''' Papa Nba...
--> '''Riko:''' Kuroko-kun! 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 Kagami.
* 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
* TheStoic
** 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.
** [[spoiler:This came at the cost of weakening his misdirection, rendering him virtually ineffective in the Rakuzan match. The buzzer beater turned out to be the last straw.]]
* UncattyResemblance: Tetsuya #2
* 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: For Seirin High.
* 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.
** Justified with his English. Most kids in school don't even pay attention that much to learning proper grammar, anyways.
* BrutalHonesty: Which often makes him come across as quite rude.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* {{Expy}}: Of [[SlamDunk Sakuragi]]. Just look at the tropes after {{Foil}}.
** Even his jersey number and special ability are similar.
* {{Foil}}: To 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
* HotBlooded
* IdiotHero
* InASingleBound: His jumps.
* LightningBruiser
* MrFanservice
* 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: It also mentions how he likes to shop as well.
* RedHeadedHero
* 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 Why Did It Have To Be Dogs]]: Doesn't turn out well for him when Kuroko decides to adopt a dog as a TeamPet.
** [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Ghosts]]: 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

A second year student at Seirin who's also the coach and manager of the Seirin basketball club. She managed to take the team to the Regionals in her first year of coaching.

->Voiced by: Creator/ChiwaSaito
-----
* ActionGirl
* ACupAngst: B-cup, actually. A mild case, mainly only when [[MsFanservice Momoi or Alex]] is around.
** A B-cup in Japan, therefore an A-cup by American standards. ACupAngst indeed.
* 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
* CuteSportsClubManager: The guys trying out for the team thinks she's this. [[SubvertedTrope She's actually the coach.]]
* CutenessProximity: Has a picture of a kitten on her phone and instantly falls in love with [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Tetsuya#2]].
* EveryGirlIsCuterWithHairDecs
* FemininityFailure: Makes honey-soaked lemons to give to her team during the break of a tough match. But 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 her male teammate.
* 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}}
* SupportingLeader
* TeamMom: Has shades of TheChick.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Momoi's Girly girl.

The captain of the Seirin basketball team. A reliable clutch-player, he is Seirin's primary pillar of mental support in games.

->Voiced by: YoshimasaHosoya

[[quoteright:250:'''Position:''' Point Guard\\
'''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.

->Voiced by: Creator/HirofumiNojima
-----
* {{Bishonen}}: Papa Aida's nickname for him is "Pretty Boy".
* ChickMagnet: In Seirin. Though they always run away when he [[PungeonMaster starts telling jokes.]]
* OnlySaneMan
* PungeonMaster
* TheSmartGuy
* StealthPun
* TopDownView: His Eagle's Eye allows him to "see" from this perspective, an ability he puts to good use in matches.
* WeakButSkilled: Noted to have lower academic prowess. He's still a dangerous player due to his Eagle's Eye and ability to pass behind his back, his back tip, and make plays no-one else could.

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

A hook-shooter. Has yet to speak 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
* 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.
* TheStoic
* 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.
** Note that 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
* 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.

[[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.
* BunnyEarsLawyer
* [[spoiler:CareerEndingInjury: This Winter Cup will be his last.]]
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Let's have some fun~"
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* 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.
* {{Keet}}: Very much during his first year, though he's toned it down in the present.
* LightningBruiser
* 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.
* RedBaron: One of the five Uncrowned Generals, "Iron-Hearted".
* 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 too.
** AFatherToHisMen
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Hyuuga.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Rats]]: The light novel reveals that he's terrified of rats after watching a horror movie about mutant rats.

[[WMG: Ryouta Kise]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kise_1_4457.png

[[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 show up.

->Voiced by: RyoheiKimura
-----
* TheAce: For Kaijou High.
* AffectionateNickname: Momoi calls him "Ki-chan".
* [[spoiler:AllYourPowersCombined: His Perfect Copy copies all the GOM's abilities, the abilities which he couldn't copy before.]]
** [[spoiler:Including '''Kuroko's!!!''']]
* AntagonistAbilities: Via PowerCopying.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: The true source of his copying abilities.
* {{Badass}}
* [[PowerCopying Basketball Copying]]: 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).
* BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame: Since he has a gift on copying skills, Kise has a tendency to do this.
* [[spoiler:BenchedHero[=/=]HeroOnHiatus: Has to sit out much of the rematch against Seirin due to his GameBreakingInjury.]]
* {{Bishonen}}: Acknowledged in-universe, where he even works as a model.
* ButtMonkey
* 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
* 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
* EvilCounterpart: He has one in Haizaki and notably replaced him as a Teikou first-string regular.
* FacePalm: When he first getting to know the Generation of Miracles, this is his general reaction.
* [[spoiler:GameBreakingInjury: Suffers one inflicted by Haizaki, which affects him in his next match against Seirin. Doesn't stop his Perfect Copy though.]]
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With 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. Though he somehow manages to stretch it for an extra 2 minutes in the rematch against Seirin.]]
** [[spoiler:FridgeBrilliance sets in when you realize he's [[BenchedHero benched for much of the match]] so he'd be rested enough to be able to stretch it for an extra 2 minutes.]]
* {{Keet}}
* ManlyTears: Due to his emotional nature, he often cries during dramatic moments. [[spoiler: Like when Kaijo lost their Interhigh match against Tōō.]]
* MrFanservice
* TheNicknamer: He adds "cchi" to the end of the names of people he's acknowledged, whether they want him to or not.
* 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".

[[quoteright:250:'''Position:''' Shooting Guard\\
'''Height/Weight:''' 195cm/79kg]]

Formerly the shooting guard (and vice-captain) of the Teikou Middle School Basketball Team, he's also a member of the Generation of Miracles. He was the second member of the team to appear.

->Voiced by: Creator/DaisukeOno
-----
* TheAce: For Shuutoku.
* AdjustingYourGlasses: Adjusts his glasses by the bridge in many of his appearances.
** StoicSpectacles
* AffectionateNickname: Takao calls him "Shin-chan."
* [[AlwaysAccurateAttack Always Accurate Shot]]: His shooting accuracy is 100%. His range is the ''entire court''.
* AntagonistAbilities: See "Always Accurate Attack" and "Long Range Shooter". 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: He runs on this. He follows morning horoscopes religiously, and gets quite pissed off at Kuroko's attempts to ScrewDestiny.
** 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.
** The whole horoscope thing might actually be true too since [[spoiler: the first time someone messes with his lucky teddy bear, Shuutoku loses to Seirin.]]
--> '''[[TheCaptain Ootsubo]]:''' I guess it's fine since the coach asked me to forgive three of your whims everyday.
** Not to mention that Midorima is implied to be from a well-off family, is successful academically, and can play the piano!
* ButtMonkey: While verbally smacking down Kagami, an okonomiyaki lands ''on his head''. He is visibly mortified.
* {{Catchphrase}}: The stuff he spouts about how because he has his daily lucky item with him, he can't possibly lose.
** "Man proposes, God disposes."
* {{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
* 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, which (in the eyes of his past and current teammates) marginally compensate for his rather grating personality.
* LikesOlderWomen: [[AllThereInTheManual The character bible]] mentions this.
* [[LongRangeFighter Long Range Shooter]]: His special ability.
* [[spoiler: ManlyTears: 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: And that's in spite of his own quirks.
* 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
* StoicSpectacles
* TallDarkAndSnarky
* {{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.

* 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.

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.

->Voiced by: Creator/JunichiSuwabe
-----
* TheAce: Of both Touou High School and the Generation of Miracles. However, given [[BrilliantButLazy his]] [[{{Jerkass}} attitude]], he's more of a BrokenAce.
* AffectionateNickname: Momoi calls him "Dai-chan".
* AmbiguouslyBrown
* BrilliantButLazy: To the core. 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 may [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruct]] this as 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.
** [[spoiler:With the defeat of Touou at the hands of Seirin, he's started taking basketball more seriously again and begins to properly train.]]
* CatchPhrase: "The only one who can win against me ... is me!"
** Bites him in the ass when [[spoiler: he plays against Kise and his copying techniques. Kise loses but Aomine worked so hard for it that he overextended himself, so much that he had to be benched for the remaining matches of the tournament.]]
* 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.
* CurbStompBattle: Most games he participates in become this in short order.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* TheDreaded
* HeterosexualLifePartners: During his Teiko years, he was Kuroko's original "light" and were very close. 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.]]
* HeyItsThatVoice: Who knew that the [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Sexta Espada]] could be such a badass basketballer.
* HotGuysAreBastards
* 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 well]], [[LightningBruiser Aomine]].
--> '''Aomine:''' The only one who can defeat me is me.
* {{Jerkass}}: His actions often veer into this territory.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Shows shades of this even before the rematch against Seirin, but firmly becomes this after the rematch.
* LightningBruiser
* LonelyAtTheTop: What caused his StartOfDarkness.
* 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.

* SmugSuper

* AwesomenessByAnalysis: As the manager, she's in charge of checking out rival teams, and she has the ability to [[spoiler: accurately predict what each player would focus on in their training next, allowing her to warn her team what new skills from their opponents they should look out for.]]
* 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[=/=]TheSmartGuy: Plays a combination of these roles for both Touou in the present and Teikou in the past.
* 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
* CuteSportsClubManager: At Teiko and Touou.
* MaleGaze
* MarshmallowHell: When she gives Kuroko a hug.
--> '''Kuroko:''' I can't breathe, Momoi-san.
--> '''Seirin Basketball Club:''' I don't know what's going on. I'm unbelievably jealous, Kuroko! Kuroko, you lucky bastard! I hope you die!
* MeaningfulName: Her last name is a combination of the words 'pink' and 'management'.
* MsFanservice
* 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
* LoveBubbles: When Kuroko gives her a prize-winning ice-cream stick.
* PinkMeansFeminine: See also MeaningfulName.
* PlatonicLifePartners: If you don't interpret their interactions as BelligerentSexualTension, then she and Aomine are probably this.

[[spoiler: He didn't play for Yousen in the National High School Basketball Tournament finals simply because Akashi told him not to.]]

->Voiced by: Creator/KenichiSuzumura
-----
* TheAce: Subverted; he and Himuro are considered the team's two aces.

* BigEater: He's almost always seen with some sort of snack in hand.
** SweetTooth
* TheBigGuy
* BrilliantButLazy: Really really really good at basketball but finds it boring.
** {{Subverted|Trope}} actually, since he actually trains the hardest out of his team because while he hates practice, he hates losing even more. However this was played straight while he was in middle school after his powers awakened since he was in a team that never lost.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: His dunk ''bent the basketball hoop in two''. The match even had to be posponed to fix the damage!
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}

* AnimalMotifs: "Tatsu" means "Dragon".

* BigBrotherMentor: To Kagami.
* {{Bishounen}}
* [[spoiler: CantCatchUp: He's on par with the Generation of Miracles, but it's noted by everyone, including himself, that he'll never be able to reach their level of skill.]]

* FirstNameBasis: Calls Kagami and Murasakibara by their first names, "Taiga" and "Atsushi". Possibly due to his long stay in America.
* [[spoiler:GreenEyedMonster: Always resented that Kagami was the most talented of the two.]]
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Kagami, pre-series.

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.

->Voiced by: Creator/HiroshiKamiya
-----
* TheAce: For Rakuzan High. Also his "I've never lost in anything" schtick.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: His Emperor Eye.
* AxCrazy: The way he [[spoiler: attacked Kagami with scissors]] seems to indicate that he's this.
** Kagami however says later on that [[spoiler: Akashi attacked him knowing Kagami would definitely be able to dodge it. He still left a cut on Kagami's face though. And given Akashi's future actions later on, its' implied that he did intend to injure Kagami for real.]]
* BadassBoast: "I am absolute. I can see the entirety of the future. It is but a simple matter to change it."
* TheCaptain: Became one in his first/second year in Teikou (he was definitely at least a vice-captain in his first year) [[spoiler:and Rakuzan.]]
* TheChessmaster: Naturally. Also, while we mainly see him playing shougi when he's not playing basketball, [[AllThereInTheManual he's also mentioned to play chess]].
* [[spoiler: CombatClairvoyance: His special ability ]]
* 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.
* [[CrazyPeoplePlayChess Crazy People Play Shougi]]: [[spoiler: He ''definitely'' doesn't seem like the sanest person around after he declared that he would gouge out both his eyes if Rakuzan lost to Shuutoku.]]
** [[AllThereInTheManual The character book]] mentions that he also plays chess, though in-series we only see shougi.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: [[spoiler:and Trying to stab Kagami with a pair of scissors upon interrupting his conversation.]]
* EvilRedhead[=/=][[spoiler:SuperpoweredEvilSide]]: Possibly, or he could be just ruthless and/or crazy.
* ExpectingSomeoneTaller: Furihata is surprised that he's around his and Kuroko's height.
** He is 173 cm which makes him the second shortest GOM member after Kuroko.
** [[spoiler: Basically the crowd's amazed reaction after he dunks against Seirin.]]
* 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: With everyone else in the GOM (except the manager Momoi), but only on his part. They are all on LastNameBasis with him.
** He was on LastNameBasis with them while in middle school though. [[spoiler:He started calling them by their first names after the other side of his SplitPersonality took over permanently.]]
** Mibuchi [[http://mangafox.me/manga/kuroko_no_basuke/v20/c175/9.html called him]] Sei-chan.
* HellishPupils
* 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: Type I and IV, although he shows shades of Type II as well.
* 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'.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: [[spoiler:When he first uses FirstNameBasis on Kuroko.]]
* RedHeadedHero: While in Teikou.
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:His face in chapter 113.]]
* [[SmartPeoplePlayChess Smart People Play Shougi]]: Might also be [[CrazyPeoplePlayChess Crazy People Play Shougi]].
* SmugSuper
* [[spoiler:SplitPersonality: Midorima suspected Akashi of having this. Akashi himself admits to Kuroko that he has this.]]
** [[spoiler:SplitPersonalityTakeover: If you haven't figured it out already...]]
* 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.
* 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.
* [[spoiler:WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: 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.]]
