!!Miharu Rokujou
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/miharu_7990.jpg]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/RieKugimiya (JP), Creator/BrinaPalencia (EN)
The apathetic 14-year old protagonist of the series. Although Nabari's most powerful secret art, the Shinrabanshou (lit. All Things in Nature), is literally written into his body and he is venerated by all of Nabari's ninja as king, Miharu cares little about his gift's profound merits. His only goal is to [[IJustWantToBeNormal inherit the family's okonomiyaki store]].

* [[AloofDarkHairedGirl Aloof Dark-Haired Boy]]
* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead]]
* BirdsOfAFeather: Seemingly the basis of his friendship with Yoite; both are [[JadeColoredGlasses jaded]], withdrawn [[TheStoic stoics]] ([[NotSoStoic at first]]) fighting a war with little personal meaning to them. Miharu even calls Yoite "another me."
* BlessedWithSuck
* CrossDressingVoices
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: The Shinrabanshou.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DeliberatelyCuteChild: Uses his charm to get out of bad situations.
* DynamicCharacter: In later chapters, lots of characters remark on how much more open and "alive" he's become.
* [[EmotionlessGirl Emotionless Boy]]: Starts off the series with a very muted, apathetic personality. [[spoiler: He becomes much more expressive over the course of the series.]]
* FriendlessBackground
* GreenEyes
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Doesn't want to have anything to do with the world of Nabari.
* LackOfEmpathy: One of his defining traits at the beginning of the manga.
* PickyEater: Miharu lives on a diet of mostly sweets and liquids, which would explain why he weighs all of 77 pounds.
** ForgetsToEat
* SavedByCanon: [[spoiler: Sort of.]]
* SayMyName: Says Yoite's name a lot, though given his [[EmotionlessBoy subdued nature]] it's less loud than the the typical example. Becomes a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming in the manga's last chapter when he calls Yoite's name [[spoiler: as they reunite, and repeats it while gazing at the scar on his hand after they separate.]]
* ScarsAreForever: The scar Miharu gets on his hand from stopping Yoite from killing Yae Oda [[spoiler: is brought up again at the very end of the manga]].
* TheStoic: [[NotSoStoic Once Yoite is in the picture, though...]]
* StoppedCaring

-> Voiced by: Creator/SatoshiHino (JP), Chris Burnett (EN)
One of Miharu's classmates, Aizawa is the leader of the school's Nindou club. [[spoiler:He's actually an owl with a human heart who was made immortal by a previous hijutsu user. He and Shijima both want Miharu to free them from the [[WhoWantsToLiveForever "curse" of immortality]].]]

* {{Adorkable}}: Particularly when around Raimei.
* BadassBookworm: Aizawa Kouichi seems like a mild-mannered and well-spoken young man often taken aback by his friends' quirks and isn't the best at ninja techniques...except when push comes to shove, he becomes a cool, level-headed, and actually professional ninja who doesn't hesitate to kill, brainwash, and [[spoiler:do whatever it takes to free himself from the curse of immortality, even if it means siding with the enemy village.]]
* {{Bishonen}}
* BewareTheNiceOnes
* BlessedWithSuck: [[spoiler: Views his immortality as a curse, having grown weary after living for so long.]]
* [[spoiler: CuteAndPsycho: Can come off as crazy when he's defeating people and [[PsychoticSmirk smiling]] while he does it.]]
* FanNickname: [[spoiler:Owlzawa, Oldzawa, and Shotazawa for Kouichi's various forms.]]
* HellishPupils: At times. [[spoiler: Presumably because he's not completely human.]]
* IJustWantToBeNormal: He and [[spoiler: Shijima]] never wanted [[spoiler: their immortality]] and have grown weary of it over time.
* [[spoiler:{{Immortality}}]]
* LikeBrotherAndSister: Has shades of this relationship with Shijima.
* {{Megane}}
* NiceGuy
* [[spoiler:OlderThanTheyLook[=/=]ReallySevenHundredYearsOld]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: While he apparently isn't evil, he's certainly more ruthless than he first appears, and he's definitely planning something behind his team's back. Plus, he's [[spoiler:immortal, and not exactly human]].
* RedOniBlueOni: The Blue to Raimei's Red.
* RelationshipVoiceActor: [[Creator/RieKugimiya Miharu is]] [[ShakuganNoShana Shana]] while [[Creator/SatoshiHino Kouichi is Yuuji]]
**he is also Saito too.
* ScaryShinyGlasses
* [[spoiler:WhoWantsToLiveForever: Views his immortality as a curse.]]

!!Tobari Durandal Kumohira
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/39416_6356_1029.jpg]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/DaisukeNamikawa (JP), Creator/EricVale (EN)
Miharu and Kouichi's 25-year-old teacher in the front world. Born in Ireland, he was forced by his grandfather to go to Japan and learn to become a ninja. Among the Banten ninja, Thobari is the most vehement dissident against Miharu using the Shinrabanshou, instead advocating its permanent seal.

* AfraidOfNeedles: Thobari's irrational fear of vehicles of all sorts. Apparently he used to be an award-winning choirboy in Ireland, but being forcibly brought over to Japan in an airplane traumatized him so much he became tone deaf.
* ButtMonkey: He can't ever seem to catch a break.
* ButNotTooForeign: Partially Irish.
* {{Determinator}}
* FailureKnight: His devotion to Miharu is partially because of his guilt from failing to seal the Shinrabanshou 10 years ago.
* FanNickname: Pedo-sensei.
* FatalFlaw: He's [[ThouShaltNotKill morally unable to take a life]], which makes it hard for him to protect Miharu. Multiple characters call him out on this. [[spoiler: He finally gets over it by killing Hattori in the anime and Fuuma in the manga]].
* TheMentor: Of sorts.
* MyGreatestFailure: Not protecting [[spoiler: Akatsuki, Asahi, and his grandfather]] and failing to seal the Shinrabanshou. The guilt from this incident weighs pretty heavily on him, compounded by the fact that he's the only person who remembers what happened.
* PapaWolf: Towards his students.
* PhenotypeStereotype: Averted: Kumohira is partly Irish, and he does have blue eyes, but with dark hair instead of blond.
* {{Oireland}}: Averted: Kumohira averts almost all of the typical Oirish stereotypes, including drinking.
* ThouShaltNotKill: His personal moral code won't let him kill anyone. While this makes him one of the more honorable shinobi, it also complicates his mission to protect Miharu.

* GirlishPigtails
* HonorBeforeReason: She refuses to trick her opponents, preferring to face them head-on.

* NewTransferStudent: Raimei's case is a little strange in that she just sort of...invades. The other students seem to love her, though.
* ObliviousToLove: She doesn't appear too aware of Kouichi's romantic feelings for her.
* PluckyGirl: Remarkably cheerful considering [[DarkAndTroubledPast her past]]. She's also a {{Determinator}} when fighting and in regards to her RoaringRampageOfRevenge against Raikou.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Red to Kouichi and Miharu's Blue.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Against Raikou for killing their family. [[spoiler: She stops after learning that he was acting in self-defense and didn't kill their parents.]]
* RunningGag: Her tendency to mistake people for each other when she's excited about something.
* {{Samurai}}: A self-styled one. She's HotBlooded and more focused on honor than most of the ninja around her.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak
* TownGirls: The Butch to Saraba's Femme and Juuji's Neither.
* {{Tsundere}}: She's a minor example, but she still retains aspects of a Type B around Kouichi, Miharu, and Kumohira.

!!Kotarou Fuuma/[[spoiler:Inasa]]

* [[spoiler:BigBad]]

[[quoteright:215:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Nabari20no20Ou20-200420-20Large2020_2330.jpg]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/JojiNakata (JP), Creator/KentWilliams (EN)
The leader of the Iga clan and the Kairoushuu. His ideal is to change history and achieve equality among humans with the Shinrabanshou. Hattori takes in many outcasts, offering them a place in the Kairoushuu. Despite this kindness, though, Hattori has little qualms about [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness eliminating those who oppose him.]]

* BigBad: [[spoiler: Seemed to be anyway. In the anime he is one; in the manga...]]
* [[spoiler: BigBadWannabe]]: Looks like the BigBad of the series [[spoiler: but it's actually Fuuma]]
* DarkMessiah
* TheHeavy: Hattori appears to drive most of the plot, though he [[spoiler:isn't actually the]] BigBad -- [[spoiler: [[TheManBehindTheMan Fuuma]] is]].
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hattori_Hanzō Hattori Hanzou]], who, unsurprisingly, was the rival of the real-life Fuuma Kotarou.

* [[spoiler: YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Gets this from his own secretary]]

-> Voiced by: Creator/YuriAmano (JP), JamieMarchi (EN)
Often seen in the company of Hattori, Ichiki is TheLeader of Kasa. Ichiki is always seen dressed in a [[KimonoIsTraditional traditional kimono]] and appears to be blind.

* ChekhovsGunman
* DeadpanSnarker
* DragonWithAnAgenda: Wanted the {{McGuffin}} for herself so she kills her boss when she has no more use for him.
* EyesAlwaysShut: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that she's blind. [[spoiler: She opens them after killing Hattori.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: In the anime she genuinely cares for [[spoiler: Hattori]] and is enraged when [[spoiler: he dies]]. In the manga, however, [[spoiler: she betrays him with a smile on her face]].

* OlderThanTheyLook: She's supposedly ''49''.

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/62058_8923.jpg]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/MitsukiSaiga (JP), Creator/JoelMcDonald (EN)
A 16-year-old ninja who uses the Iga's kinjutsushō "Kira", a technique that shoots the user's ki into the target's body and controls it from the inside out, causing the target's bones to break or their body to completely explode. The cost of using this technique is the [[CastFromLifespan loss of the user's life force]]. When Yoite is introduced, he has only a few more months to live.

According to WordOfGod, Yoite and Miharu are the series' two protagonists [[spoiler: despite Yoite's absence after his death]].

* [[spoiler: AbusiveParents]]
* AmbiguousGender: Subverted. [[spoiler:the reader (and even most characters, apparently) start out believing that Yoite is a boy. Later it turns out that he's actually... [[{{Hermaphrodite}} intersexual]]. It doesn't really matter in the long run, though, and isn't gone into in much detail, only the readers now know another reason for his angst and identity issues.]]
* BadassLongcoat: Yoite is almost never seen without some sort of thick, black coat. He won't take it off, even if it's the middle of summer or if he's soaking wet.
* BigEater: Yoite can be seen eating huge amounts of food in the background of various scenes. He'll eat just about anything since [[spoiler:his Kira skill is robbing him of all his senses, and has already taken his sense of taste.]]
* BerserkButton: Being called an Emo Kid, in the dub.
* BlessedWithSuck: Kira is a huge advantage in battle, but is also CastFromLifespan.
* BrokenBird: Due to [[spoiler: his abusive childhood]] and the fact that he's going to die soon.
* CastFromLifespan: The Kira technique is powered by Yoite's LifeEnergy.
* CrossDressingVoices
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: Kira.
* EnigmaticMinion: Works a lot on his own, including his request to Miharu. Unlike some of his teammates, he doesn't care about Kairoushuu's mission at all; rather, his greatest desire is for his wish to be granted.
* [[spoiler: GoOutWithASmile: Dies with a smile in both the anime and manga.]]
* HandicappedBadass: Regularly faints, always coughing his lungs out, can barely hear or see by chapter 50. [[{{Badass}} Not that his opponents can tell]].
* HatesBeingTouched: Though he ends up allowing Miharu to touch him sometimes, "'''Don't touch me''" is easily the phrase he says the most.
* [[spoiler:{{Hermaphrodite}}: We don't learn the specifics, but Kazuho says he's "neither male nor female." It's taken by his parents and Yoite himself as another sign that he's cursed and shouldn't have been born.]]
* IJustWantToBeNormal
* IncurableCoughOfDeath: One symptom of Yoite's condition.
* JerkassFacade: [[spoiler: Yoite reveals to Miharu that he didn't really ever have his friends as hostages because he didn't want them to die with him if he ever died unexpectedly]].
* NiceHat: Yoite's giant cap. Some fans have called this series "The Hat Anime." He loses it surprisingly often for something so iconic, though.
* OnlyOneName
* TheQuietOne: Actually gets tired from talking for a few minutes since he's used to being silent
* RavenHairIvorySkin
* TheRunaway
* ScarsAreForever: Has a scar [[spoiler: on his neck from when his parents tried to kill him.]]
* {{Shinigami}}: Called one by multiple characters. Flashbacks reveal that [[spoiler: he was called this even before he obtained Kira; family members (possibly his parents) claimed he was a shinigami who had killed his mother.]]
* [[SweaterGirl Sweater Boy]]
* [[WhenSheSmiles When He Smiles]]: ''Wow''.

!!Kazuhiko Yukimi

-> Voiced by: Creator/KenjiroTsuda (JP), Creator/RobertMcCollum (EN)
A 27-year-old ninja. He acts as a squad leader on field missions and is a freelance writer in the front world. He claims to hate kids and calls them "brats".

* ParentalSubstitute: To Yoite. [[spoiler: Later to Miharu too.]]
* PapaWolf: Yukimi [[spoiler:betrays Kairoushuu, his home and family since he was a teenager,]] and [[spoiler:loses an arm]] in order to protect Yoite. He also becomes surprisingly protective of Miharu, [[spoiler:even before promising Yoite to watch out for him.]]
* PunchClockVillain: Before his HeelFaceTurn.
* RedHerringShirt: Looks like a typical {{Mook}} in his first appearance.

!!Kazuho Amatatsu
-> Voiced by: Yui Kano (JP), Creator/CaitlinGlass (EN)
Yukimi's younger sister and Yoite's personal physician. Despite her medical license, she currently works at a sushi restaurant.

A 20-year-old samurai of the Shimizu clan. When he was fifteen, he single-handedly massacred his entire clan, with the exception of his sister Raimei. [[spoiler:This action was actually vengeance against his uncle and his gang, who murdered his parents in a coup d'état to take over the clan.]]

* AloofBigBrother: To Raimei.
* AmbiguouslyGay
* BerserkButton: When anyone (besides him) hurts Gau.
* BigBrotherInstinct: On occasion, he displays hints of this trope towards Raimei. It's rare.
* {{Bishonen}}: To the point that a lot of non-fans probably think he's a woman.
** LongHairedPrettyBoy
* CainAndAbel: The Cain to Raimei's Abel.
* ComedicSociopathy: His abusive treatment of Gau would actually qualify as [[DomesticAbuse domestic violence]] if Gau actually minded it.

* TheDragon: Was Hattori's right-hand man at one point.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Manages to drive his car into a river on his first try.
* [[HairDecorations Every Boy Is Cuter With Hair Decs]]
* FailureKnight: His decision to save Gau despite his being from the surface world stems from the regret he felt from not saving his best friend five years ago.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Raikou is convinced that Gau won't wake up from his coma because he doesn't want to see his face. Which might be justified if it was anyone else, but it's ''[[HeroWorshipper Gau]]'' we're talking about here...
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Gau.
* HonorBeforeReason
* IconicOutfit: His infamous [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/WAAAAT_1901.png "USA-CHAN" outfit]]. It's amazingly well-known for something he was only shown wearing for a ''single panel'' in the manga.
* OneHourWorkWeek: He apparently has a job making paper in the "front" world.
* MustMakeAmends: After accidentally [[spoiler: causing Gau to fall into a coma, Raikou does everything in his power to find a way to save him, including reading tons of medical books and going to Alya Academy in hopes of using Daya on Gau.]]
* PayEvilUntoEvil: Murders people on a regular basis for misusing ninjutsu for crimes like stealing.
* {{Samurai}}: Like Raimei, a self-styled one.
* RummageSaleReject: Just look at any outfit he's ever worn in the course of the series. Seriously, any of them.
* UnscrupulousHero

-> Voiced by: Creator/NobuhikoOkamoto (JP), Creator/GregAyres (EN)
Raikou's extemely devoted partner. He assists Raikou with his responsibilities to the Kairoushuu, usually compiling reports and taking samples from their targets.

* {{Adorkable}}: Due to his HotBlooded personality and hero worship of Raikou, combined with being something of a {{Keet}}.
* ButtMonkey: Often on the receiving end of Raikou's physical abuse.
* DistressedDude
* FanBoy: Of Raikou.
** HeroWorshipper
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Raikou.
* HotBlooded: Gau's [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/24-10_2989.jpg default mode]].
* HypercompetentSidekick: To Raikou. Despite being a very talented swordsman, Raikou isn't very competent in the more real-world life skills, particularly admin work, which is where Gau dutifully and diligently picks up the slack.
* {{Keet}}: Very energetic and usually cheerful.
* MoralityPet: Stops Raikou from crossing the MoralEventHorizon [[spoiler: by [[TakingTheBullet blocking a katana slash meant for Raimei]]]]. Later on, his concern for [[spoiler: Yoite]] drives Raikou's [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn]].
* PayEvilUntoEvil
* TenderTears: Cries when he meets Raikou for the first time, when Raikou tells him about his past, when he gets slashed by Raikou, when he intervenes in [[spoiler: Raikou and Yukimi]]'s fight, when he calls Yukimi on the cellphone, when [[spoiler: Raikou gets stabbed]], etc, etc...
* {{Tsurime Eyes}}: Has slanted, cat-like eyes, although they get a bit droopier through ArtEvolution.
* UndyingLoyalty: Completely devoted to Raikou. He only disobeys him once, [[spoiler: and was willing to die as punishment for that]].
* WideEyedIdealist: The most idealistic member of Kairoushuu. He believes they're changing the world for the better and can do so even more using the Shinrabanshou.
* YesMan: Gau is described as being "Raikou's little yes-man". So much so, that Kazuho and Yukimi are both taken-aback when Gau absentmindedly expresses doubt in front of Raikou on his course of action.
