* ArcherArchetype: Umi is one of the calmest and most down-to-earth of the girls, and is in the archery club.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Umi slept through episode 10's pillow fight, until some of the girls accidentally hit her. When she gets up, all of the girls, even the more calm and collected Eli and Nozomi have an OhCrap look in their face, and when Umi throws the pillows, they seem to hit rather hard.

* YamatoNadeshiko: She's somewhat of a budding one; she comes from a very traditional family, is modest, calm, rational, and has a stubbornness to her regarding the people she cares about. The only thing keeping her from playing this completely straight is how she does get worked up rather often.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
** ShyBlueHairedGirl: She used to be a ShrinkingViolet when she was young.

A first-year student aiming to be a physician like her parents, and the main composer for μ's.

* CharacterTics: Has a habit of curling her hair around her finger when bored or embarrassed.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Although Eli was one too, it takes Maki longer to warm up to the group, and she doesn't take part in too many of the non-idol activities. However, Nozomi tries to help bring her into the group more, and she ends up joining them in the pillow fight during episode 10.
* ElegantClassicalMusician: Plays piano and acts as the group's composer in the anime.

-->'''Voiced by:''' Aina Kusuda

Eli's best friend, a third year and the vice-president of the Student Council in the anime. She is none of those things outside of the anime.
* TheChessmaster: She is a mild example. Episode 8 reveals that she had been prodding them along with fortune-telling, from as early as when they were asking for name suggestions, so they would reach nine members. She played a significant role in getting Nico, Maki and Eli to join, and getting Maki to want to join also indirectly helped prod Hanayo, which also resulted in Rin joining. After this, she joined as the ninth member. This means that she is directly or indirectly responsible for every member aside from the initial trio joining.

* TeamMom: The more calm and collected of the third years and the first one to lend a hand to the underclassmen, even before actually being involved in Muse.
* TheNicknamer: Not as much as Rin, but she does sometimes add "chi" to the end of people's names, most noticeably being Nico.
* TricksterMentor: Other than her... [[ThanksForTheMammaries interesting]] methods of punishment, it's hinted that some of the signs that she uses to prompt the other girls on are made up so that they will take action.
* VerbalTic: Sometimes adds a ''-ya'' in the ends of her sentences.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: She seems to know quite a bit and often shares her knowledge with the other girls. Sometimes they wonder why she knows so much, or how much she travels.

-->'''Favorite Food:''' Sweets
-->'''Least Favorite Food:''' Spicy food
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/SoraTokui

The ''de jure'' leader of μ's, as she is the chairman of the Idol Research Club. A third year student.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: She usually makes no effort to be anything but ornery or even [[{{Jerkass}} Jerkassish]], but plays up her character as an idol as incredibly MoeMoe and incredibly sweet.(It should be noted that Niko [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold is not a bad person by any means.]])
* BookDumb
* ButtMonkey: She's often ignored when she tries suggesting things for the group.
* {{Catchphrase}}: Purposefully invokes this with her idol persona with the phrase "Nico-Nico-ni!". [[CrowningMomentOfFunny She even makes the rest of the club practice it]].
* CoolBigSis: To her younger twin sisters.
* TheDeterminator: Technically the character who has been working seriously towards being an idol the longest and is the most stubborn about it. [[spoiler: Even when Muse temporarily disbands, she tries to keep going by forming a separate unit with Rin and Hanayo.]]
** [[spoiler: And in the second season when faced with the possibility that her last chance at participating in the Love Live might not happen because Honoka would rather have the group stay out of the competition, she challenges her.]]
* GirlishPigtails
* GreenEyedMonster: She tries to tell Honoka to disband her idol group early on. Nozomi tells them that Nico originally tried to form an idol in her first year, but her standards were set too high for the other members, and they gradually quit one by one. Honoka gets around this by including her in the group, and getting her advice, however unusual it may be. She noticed that while Nico was criticizing them, it also meant she was paying close attention, and probably wanted them to succeed secretly. It seems to work, as once they start genuinely asking for Nico's advice, she mellows out and starts taking part in their group.
* TheLeader: On paper, as the chairman of the Idol Research Club.
* TheNapoleon: Both the shortest and the most irritable of the group. She even states that she has somewhat of a complex about her height.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Due to her pigtails, childish antics, and [[{{Pettanko}} less developed body]] (even in comparison to the first-years), it's easy to forget that Nico's actually a third-year.
** In her diary novel, It's look like she somewhat stop growing since first-year, much to her dismay.
* {{Otaku}}: She has a huge collection of idol-related material.
* {{Pettanko}}
** ACupAngst: At least when the more developed Eli and Nozomi are around.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Of the less evil and more {{Jerkass}} variety.
* ShipTease: With Maki.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Official subs for the anime use Nico instead of the more literal reading "Niko".
* SupremeChef: She tries to lie about it in episode 10, claiming she has a personal chef. But later that night, she ends up cooking curry for the group, and while it was good, several of the other girls ask about what she said earlier about not cooking. Nico tries to play it off by saying idols should at least know how to cook, but no one buys it.
* TheTeamWannabe: While she was overly critical of Honoka's group early on, the latter noticed she was always watching them as well. Once they include her in the group, Nico starts being much more friendly.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Calls herself Nico whenever she tries to act cute.
* {{Troll}}: Prior to joining the group, she would post hateful comments on μ's' website and videos, among other things.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Both on her school uniform and practice clothes.
