[[folder:The Main Characters]]

!!Konata Izumi
!!!Voiced by: Creator/RyoHirohashi (JP [Drama CD[=/=]NDS game]), Creator/AyaHirano (JP [Anime[=/PS2=] game]) and Creator/WendeeLee (EN)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Konata2009.jpg

A diminutive high schooler who's much more interested in video games, anime and manga than doing actual schoolwork. Her interest in popular culture is truly staggering.
----
* BadassBookworm: Considering her generally [[OtakuSurrogate sedentary lifestyle]], Konata is pretty damn athletic and physically capable. That is, when she wants to be.
* BareYourMidriff: She did this once but her father didn't like it because Yutaka might imitate her.
* BeautyMark: Has one below the outer corner of her left eye.
* BiTheWay: Implied -- while she does... odd things to other girls, she stated she's not into real-life lesbian relationships.
-->'''Konata:''' "[[http://s2-a.animea-server.net/2163%2FExtra_2_OSCEP%2F2-SMZBH.jpg Well, yeah, that's true, but for now, I have no interest in being a lesbian in real life. It just all happened this way.]]"
* BookDumb: Hates reading words that are not enclosed by a speech bubble. Ironically, even [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya light novels...]]
* BrilliantButLazy: To such levels that in a Volume 6 strip Kagami was unsurprised at the prospect of Konata getting into ''Tokyo University'' just because it's ''close to Akihabara'' (of course, she didn't get into so prestigious a university as Tokyo U).
* CatSmile: A continuous one.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Yoshimizu himself at the end of Volume 1. At the onset Konata was supposedly a cool GamerChick who [[ObfuscatingStupidity plays dumb]], only to turn into a down-to-earth, full-blown OtakuSurrogate. OrwellianRetcon was applied in the published volumes to make her image consistent.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Her connection to reality outside games and anime is tenuous at best.
* CosplayOtakuGirl: The poster girl and current page image.
* DirtyOldMan: Even though she is neither "old" or a "man", Kagami thinks she is one anyway.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Legendary Girl "A!".
* EyesAlwaysShut: It's hard to find a single strip that her eyes are open throughout.
* TheGadfly: After a certain amount of watching one can only wonder if Kagami would be a {{tsundere}} at all if Konata didn't constantly mess with her.
* GenreSavvy: [[WrongGenreSavvy Some of the time]].
* GreenEyes: Perhaps to compliment her CatSmile.
* [[{{The Hero}} The Heroine]]
* HollywoodToneDeaf: It's amazing how far off-key Creator/AyaHirano can go when she has to.
* IdiotHair: At least in one strip the Hiiragi twins could not recognize Konata but for her idiot hair.
* LegalJailbait: Promotional art and this one foot fetish-esque scene plays tries to make her sexier than she really is...
* LonersAreFreaks: Kagami has that kind of mentality towards her, even if she's far from a recluse.
* MeaningfulName: Konata's name means "here". Her mother Kanata's name means "there". Or "this person" and "that person" respectively.
* MissingMom: [[IllGirl Her mom]] died when she was young.
* NoPeriodsPeriod: In the anime, Kagami seems to think she doesn't undergo one. Konata doesn't say anything on the subject.
* NotGrowingUpSucks: Subverted. She sees herself catering for {{lolicon}} interests.
* OlderThanSheLooks: At seventeen (later eighteen) years of age, she only stands at 142cm (4'8"). Not really annoyed by that though.
* OneOfTheKids:
** She's ecstatic at turning eighteen allowing her to buy {{H-Games}} without having to go through her dad, but still pretends to be a prepubescent kid (and can pull it off successfully) to get cheaper movie tickets... and that's among the ''least'' immature things she has done as an eighteen-year-old...
** In her birthday arc in Volume 7, she admitted she has "eighth grade syndrome" (''chuunibyou''). WrongGenreSavvy sets in once one realizes that this Japanese slang can be applied to actual eighth-graders, and with connotations of {{Emo}} with a taste for {{Melodrama}}. That being said, anyone older than eighth grade who has it probably qualifies for this trope.
* OtakuSurrogate: In a series full of otakus, she stands out the most by virtue of having "male otaku" traits. One strip [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] that, saying she is only biologically female.
* PetitePride: Sometimes.
* ProudToBeAGeek: Konata holds absolutely no reservations about her hobbies.
%%* RaisedByDudes
* RapunzelHair: Ankle-length, even.
* RidiculousProcrastinator: We often get to see how much she procrastinates, yet her last-minute study can be amusingly effective at times.
* TheRival: To Misao, over which of them "owns" Kagami, and to Kou (albeit one-sided on the latter's part), over arcade fighting games.
* {{Sleepyhead}}: Even if her daytime drowsiness partly stems from her late-night anime watching and gaming, she belongs to the hardworking subtype of the trope.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Nearly a clone of her mom Kanata -- down to [[OlderThanTheyLook her lack of growth spurt]] -- except with her dad's skin tone and beauty mark.
%%* TerribleArtist
* TightsUnderShorts: She sometimes wears this with her casualwear, most notably in the manga.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Chocolate cornets.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Kagami.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Konata often talks about tripping event flags like she's in a DatingSim, even though she's actually in a SliceOfLife comedy.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
* [[YuriFan Yuri Fangirl]]: She watches ''LightNovel/StrawberryPanic'', and bought some of Hiyori's Minami/Yutaka {{doujinshi}} at Comiket, although she's initially unaware that the latter ''was'' based on her otherwise innocent cousin.

!!Kagami Hiiragi
!!!Voiced by: Creator/AmiKoshimizu (JP [Drama CD[=/=]NDS game]), EmiriKatou (JP [Anime[=/PS2=] game) and Creator/KariWahlgren (EN)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_sheet_lucky_star_hiragii_kagami.jpg

Konata's closest friend and Tsukasa's older twin sister. She is easily angered by some of Konata's more... "playful" antics, but always seems to be the one who understands her hobbies. Her liking of {{light novels}} is also a driver of plot.
-----
* BiTheWay: Implied to have a relationship with Konata that goes beyond friendship ([[TeasingCreator one confirmed by Yoshimizu as a one-sided affair, though he doesn't reveal who crushes on who]]), though she has also expressed interest in boys.
* BlueWithShock: Her standard reaction to Konata's quips.
* CatchPhrase: "Mataku..." ("Seriously/Really..."), whenever she's annoyed.
* ChallengeGamer: Lampshaded in one episode, where she sees her friends having fun playing and is frustrated at herself for playing so seriously. This is quite similar to her ''tsun'' side in life.
* ClassRepresentative: Just Grade 10 in the manga, Grades 11-12 in the anime.
* CryCute: Oh so very much.
* DeadpanSnarker: In the dub at least, she's usually annoyed when she snarks, but sometimes she's deadpan.
* GenericCuteness: Konata said Kagami would look forgettable should she cut off her [[GirlishPigtails pigtails]] in the manga. In the anime, she instead says Kagami needed to keep them since she's a {{tsundere}}.
* GirlishPigtails: For {{tsundere}}-tude.
* HatesBeingAlone: Kagami would be too proud to ever admit it, but Konata suggests the former suffers from this.
%%* TheLancer
* LethalChef: Konata likes to {{flanderize}} her as one, but she's just not as good as Tsukasa.
* LuminescentBlush: Naturally, during her deredere moments. Displayed a full body blush during her defining Comiket scene (her whole face and even her hands turned red).
* {{Miko}}: When her father is the local shrine's priest...
* {{Moe}}: InUniverse -- her [[{{Tsundere}} attitude]] is deemed adorable by Konata.
* {{Muggle}}: She plays this role in terms of otaku culture, although her prejudice in that is relatively minor. Her criticism is more concentrated in Konata's DirtyOldMan antics, irresponsible spending, laziness in studies, and the lack of a real-life goal.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Especially in the last episode.
* OnlySaneWoman: WordOfGod -- She's the most normal a Anime/LuckyStar character can get.
* PolarOppositeTwins: With Tsukasa.
* RapunzelHair: Lampshaded by Tsukasa during the BeachEpisode.
* RedOniBlueOni: Kagami can either be Konata's blue or Tsukasa's red.
%%* StraightMan
* {{Tsundere}}: Her deredere side is not about romance but more on loneliness in general. Her {{Image Song}}s even have this -- one is fast and upbeat, the other a bit slow and has lyrics hinting at her loneliness. Episode 10's "Lucky Channel" discusses at length whether "tsundere" is the right word to describe her.
* TsurimeEyes: The most significant feature to distinguish her from Tsukasa.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Konata.
* WeightWoe: To such extents that annoy Konata.
-->'''Konata:''' *Sigh* "This is one of the reasons why girls are so..."
-->'''Kagami:''' "[[HypocriticalHumor Hello. You're supposed to be a girl, too, aren't you?]]"
* YaoiFangirl: Averted. Though she likes light novels, especially LightNovel/FullMetalPanic, her reaction when innocently grabbing [[{{Filth}} a pretty graphic Gauron x Sousuke doujin]] at Comiket was a LuminescentBlush and a speedy exit.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta have Violet Hair]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: Occasionally, thus giving her "Grade S" package.

!!Tsukasa Hiiragi
!!!Voiced by: Creator/MaiNakahara (JP [Drama CD[=/=]NDS game]), Creator/KaoriFukuhara (JP [Anime[=/PS2=] game]) and Creator/MichelleRuff (EN)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_sheet_lucky_star_hiragii_tsukasa.jpg
Kagami's cheerful and very loopy younger twin sister. She's actually very good at home chores and cooking, although she sometimes has to ask for Kagami's help because she forgets things easily.
-----
%%* {{Adorkable}}
* BeautifulDreamer: [[http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn172/Yumi-Kimi-hime/Lucky%20Star%20icons/thls111icon.gif Awwwww.]] Granted, it's ''Kagami'' who discovers her sleeping, and there's no romantic intentions.
* BlankWhiteEyes: Her standard reaction to Konata's quips.
* CaptainErsatz: Of Akari Kamigishi of ''ToHeart'', at least when it comes to character designs. Lampshaded at least twice in the anime -- when Konata gives her a school uniform for a birthday gift (Kagami is instantly reminded of ''VisualNovel/ToHeart''), and when she was noticed by some otakus who call her Akira and how they ask her to say "Hiroyuki-chan".
%%* TheChick
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* TheDitz: Even the most mundane tasks like studying or ''finding her phone address'' proves to be very challenging for poor Tsukasa.
* [[ExpressiveHair Expressive]] [[ExpressiveShirt Hairpiece]]: Her bow occasionally droops when she's sad, springs up when she's happy, and spikes up when she freaks out.
* FeminineWomenCanCook: One of the very few things she's good at is cooking.
* {{Foil}}: She often serves as this to Konata and Kagami. Highlighted in the anime when Konata asks the twins their favorite colors (white for Tsukasa, black for Kagami[[note]]in the manga it's violet[[/note]]) and when Kagami asks the other two how they reacted to a manga scene (Konata laughed, Tsukasa cried; however both answer "Manga/SgtFrog" when asked about their favorite manga, prompting Kagami to wonder: "Are you the same or different?").
* HeavySleeper: She wakes up at noon, sometimes ''later'', and still thinks it's morning until someone points it out to her.
* IdiotsCannotCatchColds: Kagami says she always seems to be fine when everyone else is laid up, which Konata calls "inconspicuous"...
* TheIngenue: A lesser degree of this trope when compared to Yutaka below.
* {{Miko}}: When her father is the local shrine's priest...
* NiceGirl: [[AllThereInTheManual The official guide]] lists "Good Person" as her highest stat. One strip also shows that her idea of an April Fool's joke is lying about lying.
* PolarOppositeTwins: With Kagami.
* {{Sleepyhead}}: Classic example of the hardworking subtype.
* TalkingToHerself: In the English dub, Tsukasa shares the same voice actress as Minami.
* TaremeEyes: To differentiate her from Kagami.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta have Violet Hair]]

!!Miyuki Takara
!!!Voiced by: Erina Nakayama (JP [Drama CD[=/=]NDS game]), Creator/AyaEndo (JP [Anime[=/PS2=] game]) and Creator/KarenStrassman (EN)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/character_sheet_lucky_star_takara_miyuki.jpg

The "[[TheSmartGuy smart girl]]" of the main quartet and embodiment of many stereotypical {{meganekko}} traits, including a very polite manner of speech (even amongst her friends).
-----
* TheAce: At least from [[{{Otaku}} Konata and Hiyori]]'s point of view, as they regard all of Miyuki's faults as "Moe points".
* AfraidOfDoctors: Miyuki is afraid of going to the dentist, and often tries avoiding this even when she knows she should go.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Occasionally; one Volume 4 strip has Konata telling her that she and the other girls won't blindly follow orders. When she replies with a smile that she'll entertain other opinions, even Kuroi-sensei freaks out, implying she's willing to pretend to hear them out so long as ultimately she calls the shots. She's that assertive... she's just too polite to be blunt about it.
* BlindWithoutEm: Without her glasses, Miyuki has a 20/200 vision.
* CharmPoint: Her glasses, which Konata says give her major moe points.
* ClassRepresentative: Kept doing this, even if, personality-wise, she subverts the type.
%%* CuteClumsyGirl
%%* DisappearedDad
* GagBoobs: {{Lampshade}}d as Konata and Minami thought Miyuki, though unable to swim, can at least float ''because'' of her breasts. She even gets a [[AnimalMotifs cow joke]] from Konata at one point and wins a race [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh solely by being able to break the ribbon earlier]].
* HotTeacher: As of manga volume 8, [[spoiler:she's doing work as a home-tutor.]]
* HugeSchoolgirl: She isn't really very tall (see group shot above) -- she's only slightly taller than the Hiiragis and is slightly shorter than Patty. She just spends a lot of time with the diminutive Konata. Yui once assumes Miyuki to be unusually tall because her family's genetic shortness gave her a rather skewed perception of what average height is.
%%* {{Meganekko}}
* {{Moe}}: Invoked in-universe by Konata on account of her talents, adorable flaws, and her shapely figure, to the point of even ''deifying'' her.
-->'''Konata:''' "She's a walking shrine of Moe!"
* MsExposition: The go-to character for any and all explanations, leading to [[{{Wikipedia}} her fan nickname]].
%%* NiceGirl
%%* {{Ojou}}
* OutOfFocus: Towards the latter half of the anime. {{Lampshaded}} by the mangaka in the {{omake}} -- which is sort of unfortunate as Yoshimizu apparently has a {{meganekko}} fetish.
* ParodySue: Mercilessly lampshaded by Konata as ''"The Perfect Superwoman" and ''"The personification of Moe itself."''
%%* ProperTightsWithASkirt
%%* PurpleEyes
* RoseHairedSweetie: The nicest and most polite girl in the main cast.
%%* TheSmartGirl
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses
* SurprisinglyGoodEnglish: The fact that she can hold whole conversations with Patty ''in English''. Justified as she said she did take English conversation classes.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: What she ''didn't'' inherit from her mother, luckily, is the latter's [[{{Manchild}} childish]] [[TheDitz ditziness]]. However, Miyuki also said she was ''forced'' to be more competent or else the family [[TooDumbToLive won't be able to function]].
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Dentists?]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Has pink hair.
* YoungerThanSheLooks: Sometimes she is mistaken to be an office lady. This has became primary annoyance and woe; her maturity compared to [[{{Manchild}} Yukari]] sometimes make her appear ''older'' than her mother.

[[folder:Supporting Characters (Teens)]]

!!Yutaka Kobayakawa
!!!Voiced by: Creator/AiShimizu (JP [Drama CD[=/=]NDS game]), ShizukaHasegawa (JP [Anime[=/PS2=] game]) and HyndenWalch (EN)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yutaka-kobayakawa-114920.jpg

Yui's younger sister who lives with Konata since she got into Konata's high school. Generally speaking, a [[IllGirl frail]] but [[CheerfulChild cheerful]] [[OlderThanTheyLook fauxli]]. Her friendship with Minami often falls into RomanticTwoGirlFriendship territory.
-----
* BerserkButton: Her failure to grow.
* BrokenBird: Averted. In Volume 4 Chapter 118, it was revealed that Yui's [[ThePowerOfLove sisterly love]] helped her avert problems in social interactions resulting from the years she spent as an IllGirl.
* CaptainErsatz: Of Chiyo Mihama of ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh''. This was {{lampshade}}d when she introduced herself in front of the class (pictured above), and ''further'' lampshaded when she found she unwittingly [[ShoutOut shouted out]] to Chiyo, because "[Konata]'s geekiness is rubbing off on me!"
* CheerfulChild: Overaged, but her extreme case of [[OlderThanTheyLook Older Than She Looks]] still allows her to have the look of a child.
* CuteClumsyGirl: Konata observed she has that same "cute shortcoming" as Miyuki.
* CutesyDwarf: In-universe assumption of some of her classmates towards her, which is not particularly surprising in light of her associated tropes. She isn't really comfortable about this.
* TheDitz: Of a much lesser magnitude compared to Tsukasa though.
* DontYouDarePityMe: She, surprisingly, has moments of this, especially a Volume 7 strip where, [[spoiler:hearing that Minami has been helping her to the latter's detriment in PE, she harshly asked Minami to ''not'' help in a ''long-distance running match'']].
* GirlishPigtails: For actually being innocent.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: She has streaks of this, which acts as a {{deconstruction}} of some of her tropes -- her [[OlderThanTheyLook growth deficiencies]] and [[IllGirl poor health]], considered as her major {{Charm Point}}s, clearly brought her social issues and she clearly likes neither. Also see DontYouDarePityMe.
* IllGirl: Somehow less traditional since she never had any dangerous disease, but her weak constitution makes her succumb to common aliments ''very'' easily.
* TheIngenue: She's ''too'' innocent for the Izumis to discuss porn in front of her. Figures.
--> '''Yutaka''': "Oh Tamura-saaaaaan! What does 'yaoi' mean?"
* {{Kawaisa}}: At least in the eyes of [[{{otaku}} Konata and Hiyori]].
* LittleSisterHeroine: At least Konata thinks she is.
* {{Moe}}: Invoked in-universe by [[OtakuSurrogate Konata]] on account of her ''cute flimsy legs'', plus many moe points listed here, including IllGirl, {{Kawaisa}} and TheIngenue.
%%* NiceGirl
* NotGrowingUpSucks: Even at ''tenth'' grade she found that it ''sucks'' being too short to find a boyfriend. [[IllGirl Missing many of her classmates' social activities]] doesn't help, either.
* OlderThanSheLooks: For a fifteen-year-old, she's even way shorter than Konata at 138cm (4'6").
* SiblingYinYang: Compare to Yui, below.

!!Minami Iwasaki
!!!Voiced by: MiyuMatsuki (JP [Drama CD[=/=]NDS game]), Creator/MinoriChihara (JP [Anime[=/PS2=] game]) and Creator/MichelleRuff (EN)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/minami.gif

Entering the story by [[ReturningTheHandkerchief returning Yutaka's handkerchief]] in the beginning of what can be seen as a RomanticTwoGirlFriendship, Minami is a quiet, expressionless girl often misunderstood by others to be creepy. Good at most subjects, and is childhood friends with neighbour Miyuki since both of them love reading.
-----
* ACupAngst: She is completely flat-chested -- at least Konata and Yutaka have very small ones. Her angsting over this is close to OnceAnEpisode frequency.
* BadassBookworm: Has the tendency in unanimated manga, coupled with her ChronicHeroSyndrome.
* {{Bifauxnen}}: Played up by Hiyori in Episode 24.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: She appears to always be ready to help people.
* HiddenEyes: Happens often when she gets into an embarrasing situation.
* HugeSchoolgirl: At 163cm, she's not ''that'' tall. The assumption, however, frequently stems from her association with the ''extremely'' diminutive Yutaka.
* InnerMonologue: As she's [[TheQuietOne not that much of a talker]], she has a lot of this.
%%* NiceGirl
%%* TheQuietOne
* ReiAyanamiExpy: A parody.
* TalkingToHerself: In the English dub, Minami shares the same voice actress as Tsukasa.
%%* TsurimeEyes
%%* WhenSheSmiles:
** Volume 5 has a single panel of her giggling at Yutaka falling down. It's absolutely adorable.
** There's also the panel of her cuddling with her dog. It's just as adorable.
* XMeetsY: [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh Sakaki]] meets [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Nagato]].

!!Hiyori Tamura
!!!Voiced by: Creator/RyokoShintani (JP [Extra Drama CD[=/=]NDS game]), Creator/KaoriShimizu (JP [Anime[=/PS2=] game]) and Creator/PhileceSampler (EN)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hiyoriluckystar.gif

Yutaka and Minami's classmate, member of the Animation Research Club, and {{doujinshi}} {{yonkoma}} mangaka with a habit of shipping game characters already, as well as [[ShipperOnDeck Minami and Yutaka]].
-----
* AmbiguouslyBi: Her frequent fantasies about her friends indicate this or an overactive imagination.
* [[AnimalsHateHim Animals Hate Her]]: Or at least Minami's dog. She has a dog herself, so this is a subversion.
* BlueWithShock: Her reaction when Yutaka asks her [[TheIngenue what yaoi means]].
* TheChewToy: Almost as if Yoshimizu is punishing her for her perversions, she is the regular victim of AmusingInjuries, {{Freudian Slip}}s, accidents and other misfortunes.
%%* ForeheadOfDoom
* FreudianSlip: At one point she mistook dodgeball positions as {{Seme}} and {{Uke}}. Language note: Attacker at dodgeball is still {{seme}}; it was {{uke}} that she made the slip -- the correct term is ''mamori''. [[{{Woolseyism}} Expertly handled]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzzqsInGaBQ in the dub.]]
-->'''Hiyori:''' "And you're okay with her trying to nail you? Yeah I bet you ar--"
* ImagineSpot: Often falls into this when she fantasizes Minami and Yutaka as SchoolgirlLesbians.
** Strips in Volume 4/5 show her making different {{yaoi}}/{{yuri}} fantasies about [[JapaneseHolidays Setsubun]], not to mention another about Konata kissing Miyuki, after the former said that tooth decay can be transmitted by kissing.
** Another notable one is when Izumi begs Yutaka not to reveal her [[ClosetGeek geek identity]]. Hiyori proceeds to imagine [[SexualExtortion how a less-than-honorable guy would stereotypically react in Yutaka's place]]. [[spoiler:Izumi [[ImagineSpotting notices Hiyori's reaction]].]]
* {{Joshikousei}}: Her ImageSong revolves around this.
%%* {{Meganekko}}
* PhraseCatcher: "She's Strong..." Said by Minami and Yutaka on many occasions.
* RapunzelHair: It reaches her knees.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: Goes that at a plot-bunny-dissecting mode.
%%* SequentialArtist
* ShipperOnDeck: She frequently sees Minami and Yutaka as more than just an OddFriendship. In the manga she implied that she befriended them simply to find chances at shipping them. Also, it is also implied that if they knew the way she shipped them, they would be ''angry''.
%%* YaoiFangirl
%%* YuriFan
* [[ShippingGoggles Yuri Goggles]]: Probably the most triumphant in-universe satirical take on same-gender shippers.

!!Patricia "Patty" Martin
!!!Voiced by: Creator/SatsukiYukino (JP [Drama CD[=/=]NDS game]), Nozomi Sasaki (JP [Anime[=/PS2=] game]) and Patricia Ja Lee (EN)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/patriciamartin.gif

[[OccidentalOtaku American Otaku]] in Yutaka's class, and the most [[GenkiGirl genki]] of otakus of this series.
------
* AffectionateParody: Of American otaku.
* AnimeAccentAbsence: Completely absent in the anime, only absent in hobby-related things in the manga. The dub version has a slight twang compared to her Japanese schoolmates.
* {{Animeland}}: Her entire idea of Japan. Which the other otaku do nothing to discourage.
* AscendedExtra: Patty is an {{omake}}-only character in the early manga, only to be ascended to the main chapters later.
* ForeignExchangeStudent: She's an American exchange student and otaku who came to Japan to learn Japanese culture. Unfortunately most of what she know [[{{animeland}} is based on manga and anime]], which doesn't always match the reality.
* ForeignFanservice: She's an American, and has the second largest breast size of the entire cast.
* GenkiGirl: Incredibly energetic and willing to participate it anything fun.
* HugeSchoolgirl: She's around average height for an American schoolgirl, but she's living in Japan where [[JustifiedTrope people are naturally shorter]], and many of her friends are small even by Japanese standards.
* [[LearntEnglishFromWatchingTelevision Learnt Japanese From Watching Anime]]
* OccidentalOtaku: Her knowledge in Japanese culture seemed to be limited to anime.
%%* PhenotypeStereotype
* ProudToBeAGeek: Who else would openly say she wants to have a {{Meido}} -- not a housekeeper -- in front of Kagami, of all people?
* {{Retcon}}: In the manga, she made a few appearance in the omakes and was already know by everybody in the cast. Come Vol.7, she is introduced at the main storyline as a new face among the cast.
* YaoiFangirl: She said she is one, but we have yet to see more evidence of that.

!!Misao Kusakabe
!!!Voiced by: Creator/MikakoTakahashi (JP [Extra Drama CD[=/=]NDS game), KaoruMizuhara (JP [Anime[=/PS2=] game]) and Creator/LaraJillMiller (EN)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/misao.jpg

Kagami and Ayano's classmate for five consecutive years, Misao is the latter's childhood friend and, as defined by the former, an unorganized "lazy ass". A recurring theme in post-anime strips is her rivalry with Konata -- for Kagami, even Misao considered Kagami as being cold-hearted. Later, she [[spoiler:got into the same program of the same college as Konata]].
-----
* AdaptationDyeJob: Her hair went from black to brown.
%%* {{Bokukko}}
* ChildhoodFriends: With Ayano.
%%* CuteLittleFangs
* DumbIsGood: Quite evident when we compare her and [[ChallengeGamer Kagami's gaming style]].
* ThoseTwoGirls: With Ayano.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Ayano's Girly Girl.
%%* TomboyishSidetails
%%* TsurimeEyes
* VerbalTic: "-datte va"

!!Ayano Minegishi
!!!Voiced by: YukoGoto (JP [Extra Drama CD[=/=]NDS game]), Creator/MaiAizawa (JP [Anime[=/PS2=] game]) and Peggy O'Neal (EN)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ayanols.jpg

Misao's "[[TheCaretaker caretaker]]" (in Kagami's words) for years to the level that when Kagami was fed up with Misao or vice versa, Ayano is their go-between. She is the only teen in the series with a boyfriend.
-----
* BerserkButton: Misao experienced this hidden side of Ayano when she spilled coffee on her stuffed raccoon in the manga, though we never got to see the full extent of Ayano's anger...
%%* BewareTheNiceOnes:
** She had one of the scariest [[BlueWithShock Blue With Anger]] in this series after Misao dream-talked about... something sexy between Ayano and Misao's brother.
** For those who've only seen the anime, Misao mentioned Ayano's temper in the second-last episode.
-->''Dub!Misao'': She may act all sweet and innocent, but if you piss her off she'll cut you, man.
%%* TheCaretaker
* ChildhoodFriends: With Misao.
* DemotedToExtra: She's one of the girls barely any lines in the {{OVA}}.
* FeminineWomenCanCook: Although, her family runs a cooking school, so there may be non-gender-role justification.
* ForeheadOfDoom: Wears her hair like this because her boyfriend likes it.
* InformedAttribute: The fact that she has a boyfriend.
* SatelliteCharacter: So unimportant she has a boyfriend.
* ShrinkingViolet: Volume 8 mentioned that she was like that when she was younger.
%%* TaremeEyes
* ThoseTwoGirls: With Misao
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Misao's Tomboy.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Passive, likes taking care of others, and a good cook. To complete the image, [[InformedAttribute sort of]], she has a boyfriend. However, she is no pushover.
%%* ZettaiRyouiki

!!Kō Yasaka

ClassRepresentative of Hiyori's class who appears in Volume 7. She is also an otaku, but tries to hide it as she is an upper-class girl who is class president.

She likes "cute" things and likes sweets, as well as coffee and milk.
-----
%%* ClassRepresentative
* ClosetGeek: And freaks out whenever she thinks she's been discovered.
* [[SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay Something Only an otaku would say]]: Konata first found she's an otaku after Konata overheard her using {{Twintails}} for something {{muggle}}s would settle with "pigtails".

* ChristmasCake: And incorrectly assumed Yui was also single.
* CorporalPunishment: Frequently delivers rather aggressive {{Dope Slap}}s to Konata.

%%* HotTeacher

* MustHaveLotsOfFreeTime: To the level that Konata wondered if that's the reason that she's a ChristmasCake; she didn't have that much of a social life.
* NoSenseOfDirection
%%* OneOfTheKids
* ParentalHypocrisy: She plays the same online game as Konata, and has been into MMORPG's since before she was Konata's age, but she tells Konata off for doing that very thing, and ''uses in-game chat to remind her to do her homework''. When Konata calls her out on this, she remarks that, as a teacher, she has a duty to uphold, which Konata accepts as understandable, but still...

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yuiluckystar_8209.jpeg

Konata's cousin and Yutaka's older sister. She works as a traffic cop, but even Konata wonders why can she keep at that position. Surprisingly, she showed real care towards Yutaka. Has an offscreen husband.

------
* AudienceSurrogate: For the older male readers/audience.
* BeautyMark: On the outer corner on his left eye. Such a mark customarily symbolizes sadness, which is appropriate for him; he really ''misses'' his late wife Kanata.
* BumblingDad: He's certainly not stupid or lazy, yet the entire Izumi-Kobayakawa household ''thinks'' so.
* CassandraTruth: ''Nobody'' believes that he is actually a hardworking writer who can write wholesome, non-otaku-related topics, has quite a bit of book smarts, has had a relationship with Kanata that was far beyond {{lolicon}}, so on and so forth.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Kanata.
* DemotedToExtra: Didn't appear in the OVA.
* DotingParent: Someone's got to give the guy credit for being an attentive and loving father who raised a happy and emotionally well-adjusted daughter to adulthood... eccentricities notwithstanding.
* {{Lolicon}}:
** He buys {{H-game}}s for his underage daughter and takes shots of nubile girls at other schools' sports festivals. Needless to say, even his daughter was fed up and frequently fears for his arrest.
** In later volumes of the manga this aspect of his gets subdued. One Volume 7 strip has Yutaka catching him [[spoiler:looking between the legs of figurines]] -- which horrified the innocent girl to no end. This ends up becoming a running gag.
%%* OneOfTheKids
%%* PermaStubble
%%* PervertDad
%%* UglyGuyHotWife
* UnfortunateImplications: In-universe -- [[spoiler:the figure incident could be seen as him actually having dropped it and picking it up. Also, in volume 7 he gets spotted by Yutaka pantsless while trying to find toilet paper. Konata hears a scream and assumes he did something stupid.]]
* YoungerThanHeLooks: Even as a teenager he looked way older than Kanata, who turns out to be a bit ''older'' than him.
* WholeEpisodeFlashback: The latter half of episode 22, when he recalled his life with his late wife Kanata.

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Matsuri_Hiiragi_3745.jpg

The second eldest of the Hiiragi sisters.
----
* {{Jerkass}}: Occasionally acts like a mild-grade variant; for instance she's been known to forget to wake up Tsukasa, then tell her youngest sister that she (Tsukasa) slept through the wake-up call. At one point Kagami asks her, "Is avoiding your troubles all you do?"
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While both she and Kagami verbally spat multiple times during the time she made paella, Matsuri also made sure to give Kagami credit for buying the ingredients when their parents praised Matsuri for making it.

!!!Voiced by: Creator/TomokazuSeki (JP) and Creator/LexLang (EN)
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/luckystar-animetenchouburning-tvtropes2.jpg

An anime-only character, he is the manager of the Animate store Konata frequents. He is actually the mascot for the Animate chain as ''Captain Animate'', created by Shimamoto Kazuhiko in the late 90s; but the one who made him known in Japan was none than Creator/HideakiAnno who directed a short OriginalVideoAnimation for the character, a Radio Show was also made. Anisawa was made to help boost the sales and pick interest of the general public into buying anime merchandise, not just for Animate stores.

** He also has a cameo in ''[[VideoGame/Disgaea4APromiseUnforgotten Disgaea 4]]'' of all places.
** As well as during the credits for [[AxisPowersHetalia Hetalia]] World Series: Fantasia.
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Trying to get Legendary Girl A to buy ONE THING proves about as successful as Wile E. Coyote getting the Road Runner to STAND STILL, let alone eat it.
* HotBlooded: To a ridiculous extent, though [[GGundam it's not hard to imagine why.]] His every appearance is typically accompanied by spontaneous combustion.
%%* HotbloodedSideburns
%%* LargeHam
%%* ManlyTears
* MundaneMadeAwesome: ''Every'' attempt at selling something to "Legendary Girl A" (AKA Konata).
* ProductPlacement: The Animate chain does have commercial links with this series, judging from the existence of some of its strips from its in-store magazine.
* ShoutOut: In one episode, he pulls a freaking ''[[CodeGeass Geass]]'' from out of nowhere. ''[[CompellingVoice Lelouch's Geass.]]'' He uses it on Konata to get her to FINALLY buy something in his store... only for it to turn out that she doesn't have enough money.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: In the Volume 2 [[BonusMaterial Omake]], a "[[WhatIf what if]] Soujiro was Miyuki's father" strip showed Yukari sneaking up on him with a hammer and a very disturbing expression after he fondled Miyuki...

%%* EyesAlwaysShut
* NiceGirl: Miyuki even says she's "incapable of guile".
* RoseHairedSweetie: Just as sweet as her daughter.
* TooDumbToLive: The character sketches say it's impossible for her to live alone, but it's impossible for her to get into that situation either.

%%* PosthumousCharacter
* PunnyName: Kanata means "there". Now think about the translation of her ImageSong.
%%* RapunzelHair
* SpookyPhotographs: She unintentionally caused one of these while trying to get a family picture with her husband and daughter. The sight of her ghostly figure in the photo causes Konata and Soujirou to freak out.
