!!Panty Anarchy
[[quoteright:222:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Panty_4449.png]]
->''I'm back from rockin' out with my cock out! Get this shit: some dude just came up to me and thrust his package in my face!''

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ArisaOgasawara (JP), Creator/JamieMarchi (EN)

The blonde angel. Constantly has sex on her mind and will screw just about any man she takes a fancy to. Also very rude to a fault. Can transform her (as well as anyone else's) panties into a gun.
-----
* ActionGirl
* AllWomenAreLustful: ''Definitely.'' Also, the trope image.
* AnimeHair: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in "1 Angry Ghost" when the [[ItMakesSenseInContext monkey lawyer]] mistakes her bangs for a bunch of bananas.
* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler:In the season finale, Stocking slices her entire body into 666 pieces to use as a trail of bread crumbs for Brief to follow her and Corset to the destination of their next evil plan. Brief must apparently collect all pieces if he is to have any chance of saving her]].
* AntiHero: NominalHero, played for laughs.
* BadassAdorable: With emphasis on the badass.
* BadassBiker: She can drive a motorcycle like a pro.
* BadLiar: Probably one of the worst there is.
* BareYourMidriff: In her angel outfit.
** The red tube top underneath her white-and-blue varisty jacket in "Death Race 2010" also counts.
* BreakTheHaughty: [[spoiler: In Episode 12, only Stocking is allowed to return to heaven and Panty has to start her Ghost hunting duties over, alone this time. Garterbelt interferes with her atttempts to have sex, and she starts to lose her powers because of it. She gets into a fight with her arch rivals who kick her butt, and she has to be rescued by the universe's ButtMonkey, Brief, of all people. She ends up trying to have sex with him, but her lost powers also come with a regenerated hymen. The episode ends with her not only unable to have sex, but also completely powerless to stop the only person who still cares about her from being abducted in front of her.]] That was...unexpected.
* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler: The result of stopping sex.]]
* BunnyEarsLawyer
* ChurchMilitant
* CrystalSpiresAndTogas: Her transformation sequence (although in this case the spire is a [[YouCanLeaveYourHatOn pole]] of [[{{Stripperiffic}} dancing]]
* CosmicPlaything: As much as almost anyone else in the series. [[spoiler: After losing angelhood, multiplied thousandfold.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: ''Especially'' in the dub.
* DeathByAThousandCuts: [[spoiler:Literally (though more like [[NumberOfTheBeast six hundred sixty-six]]), by [[MindControl Stocking]].]]
* DeathByOriginStory: With Stocking and Chuck if the ending credits are to be believed.
* DoesNotLikeGuns: A reason why she'd prefer Heaven Guns made from her panties (which are not magic, as she have been shown to be able to turn any underwear into a gun, with varieting effects), that and she complains how bad the gunpowder smells.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Panty's power is to turn underwear into guns. The size of the gun depends on the underwear's wearer.
* DramaticGunCock: Complete with WrittenSoundEffect.
* ExtremeOmnisexual: Only applies to men, however; she's even bedded a male robot when she briefly transforms into one herself.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Men and women alike nosebleed at the sight of her naked bottom.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes
* FallenAngel: Shares this with Stocking.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Sanguine.
* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: Is constantly fighting with Stocking, who is her utter opposite in terms of their personalities.
* TheGunslinger
** GunsAkimbo: Able to do so using Stocking's panties and can [[BifurcatedWeapon combine them together to make a machinegun or rifle]].
** With BottomlessMagazines. [[spoiler: Until she becomes human.]]
* GoodBadGirl: Takes this trope to its logical extreme by being a LovableSexManiac who is also an angel from heaven.
* GodivaHair: Panty makes use of this trope in "Catfight Club", when she brings out her gun ''while not wearing any other lower garments''. And she takes it to even sillier extremes during "High School Nudical", when her panties get stolen and she spends the whole fight scene jumping around in only a bra.
* GoingCommando: Duh.
* GunFu: Most epically against Scanty in "Les Diaboliques"
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Subverted.
* HeroicBSOD: She falls into despair after [[spoiler: she [[BroughtDownToNormal fully becomes human]], which causes her to lose her angelic powers and her hymen to regenerate, which prevents her from fighting and restores her to a virgin state, respectively]]. To sum up, never before has the sight of a hot naked chick with a pair of panties hanging off her finger looked so [[http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/9316/ep1208.png depressing]].
* HiddenDepths: Genuinely cares a great deal for her sister. And while she acts like a bitch toward Brief, she *does* make sure he comes out of every adventure relatively intact.
* [[HornyDevils Horny]] [[IncrediblyLamePun Angels]]
* HotBlooded: Not to the point of Garterbelt, but she's definitely quite enthusiastic.
* HumiliationConga: Episode 13 opens with [[spoiler:Garterbelt throwing Panty out of her home because she's been BroughtDownToNormal (i.e., she's just a normal bitch instead of a bitchy angel), forcing her to walk through the rain and get bombarded by bird poop, a baseball, an open can of paint, a flower pot, a hammer, a pan, and a 16-ton weight before getting struck by lightning, drenched by heavier rain, splashed by a passing car, and knocked into a dumpster by an ambulance where a bunch of cats, dogs, and people gather and start having sex all around her until she finally vomits and stumbles into an open sewer drain]]. All in that order before the opening credits in the span of ''one minute''!
* ImageSong: "Juice". A short BowChickaWowWow song every single time in the series during particularly fanservice-y moments. The song also appears in the soundtrack, but with the added sound effect of [[TheImmodestOrgasm Panty herself having an orgasm]]. ItMakesSenseInContext.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler: Stocking did this to her right before chopping her to pieces. And it was right through the head, too!]]
* {{Jerkass}}/JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Alternates between the two.
** JerkassWoobie: "Panty + Brief" [[spoiler: besides being a major WhamEpisode]] is basically a long series of KickTheDog for Panty. Even [[LaserGuidedKarma if you think she deserves it (and you probably do)]], it's extremely hard not to feel bad for her.
* TheLadette: Her lady-like look may be deceiving.
* LadyInRed: Favors a slinky red MiniDressOfPower to play up her love of adoration and sex.
* LoveRealization: In Episode 12, Panty, of all people, falls for [[spoiler: Brief (again, of all people) once she realizes that he and a sexy {{Bishounen}} she met earlier are one and the same. Subverted in Episode 13, where she continues to treat Brief as she always has after having sex with him, but she stops calling him "Geek Boy" and [[SayMyName uses his real name instead]].]]
* LovableSexManiac: [[Pantheon/{{Love}} The goddess of this trope.]] Even her X-ray in the opening sequence shows that all that seems to be in her head is "Sex, male, sex, men, sex, sex, sex."
-->'''Panty:''' I don't know whether I'm feeling sluggish because I'm having too much sex or I can't think of anything other than sex because I'm too sluggish.
** It's revealed in "Panty + Brief" that she plans to have sex with one thousand men before returning to Heaven. [[spoiler: Sadly, God doesn't look kindly on this sort of behavior, which prevents her from returning together with Stocking.]]
* {{Lust}}: [[UpToEleven To the max.]]
* ModestyBedsheet: Her usual outfit whenever Garterbelt is giving the morning report.
* MoreDakka: That's her way to deal with her enemies.
* MorphWeapon: Transforms panties to get her gun.
* MsFanservice
** ShamelessFanserviceGirl: She's done a lap dance ''on television'' in "1 Angry Ghost", and that's just the beginning.
* [[NamedWeapons Named Weapon]]: Backlace.
* PantyShot: Ironically, despite (or rather, ''[[GoingCommando because]]'' of) the fact that she uses her undies as a weapon, Panty doesn't play this trope straight until "Of The Dead" in Episode 8.
* ShootTheBullet: Or a [[MoreDakka whole salvo]] of them, cuz [[RuleOfCool why not]].
* ThePornomancer: She constantly finds (relatively) attractive men who are willing to have one-night stands with her.
* PunchClockHero
* RapunzelHair
* ReallyGetsAround: ''A lot''. In fact, as previously mentioned, her goal was to get laid by one thousand men -- a goal she eventually reaches after hitting nine hundred and ninety nine, and then deciding on [[spoiler:Brief]] as her final partner.
* RedOni
* SexGoddess: Hoo boy, does she deserve it.
* SirSwearsALot: Swears the most in the cast, and also tends to use crude, informal speech patterns in general.
* [[SleepsWithEveryoneButYou Sleeps With Everyone But Brief]]: To be fair, she did ask Brief to sleep with her at the end of "Les Diaboliques", but he thought that was a little too soon. [[spoiler: She later falls for him in "Panty + Brief" and decides to have sex with him again; unfortunately, this is around the same time she loses her powers as an angel and regains her hymen, restoring her to a virgin state. They finally do have sex in "Bitch Girls", which breaks her hymen and restores her powers.]]
* STDImmunity: And hoo boy, does she need it.
* TrashOfTheTitans
* TsurimeEyes
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist
* VaporWear
* VirginPower: [[spoiler:Inverted, regaining her virginity caused her to lose her powers.]]
* WindsOfDestinyChange: Implied in "The Stripping" to have the power of good luck.

!!Stocking Anarchy
[[quoteright:222:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stocking_3963.png]]
->''Yummy! I want to make dessert babies with you! You were so worth the two hour wait, my dear Swiss roll! I would rub you all over my body if it weren’t for the yeast. I swear I would!''

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MariyaIse (JP), Creator/MonicaRial (EN)

The [[ElegantGothicLolita goth-loli]] angel. Absolutely loves sweets and can usually be seen eating a variety of them in the episodes. Often the voice of reason between the pair, having to keep Panty on task (sometimes the other way round). Can turn her stockings into katana.
-----
* ActionGirl
* AmbiguouslyEvil: [[spoiler:Is she really a demon like she claimed in the last episode or was she being [[MindControlEyes mind controlled?]]]]
** [[spoiler: OR was that REALLY her?]]
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling
* AntiHero: PragmaticHero or UnscrupulousHero.
* AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence
* BadassAdorable: With emphasis on the adorable.
* BadassDriver
* BerserkButton: Stealing her treasured pudding. Or screwing with her ability to eat all she wants without consequence. Or calling her "fleshy". Or cutting her hair.
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:Her entrance in "Bitch Girls".]]
* BigEater: She claims that all the fat goes to her boobs.
* BiTheWay: In "High School Nudical", when she and Panty make their big entrance, Panty slaps a bunch of guys' packages while Stocking slaps a bunch of girls' tits.
* BlueOni
* BondageIsBad: PlayedWith, since she has an obvious thing for bondage despite being as close to "good" as this show has. If [[spoiler: the whole "I'm a demon" thing is true, however, [[DoubleSubverted then it's played straight]]. [[FridgeBrilliance In fact, it might have been hinting her true alliance all along]].]]
* BunnyEarsLawyer
* CainAndAbel: [[spoiler:The Cain to Panty's Abel in the last episode, when she slices the former to pieces.]]
* ChurchMilitant
* CovertPervert: In fact, she only really qualifies as "covert" in comparison to the supernova of sexuality eclipsing her.
* CuteAndPsycho
* DarkIsNotEvil: Despite her gothic motif, she's nicer and more level-headed than Panty. [[spoiler:Barely.]]
* DeadpanSnarker[=/=]LittleMissSnarker: She's not quite as deadpan in Japanese as she is in the English dub, but she's ''very'' snarky in both versions.
* DeathByOriginStory: With Panty and Chuck if the Ending credits is to be believed.
* DeusExitMachina: [[spoiler:A quite literal one in "Panty + Brief". She's the more responsible one, so without her, Panty has to [[CharacterDevelopment develop some character]]. Fast]].
* DualWielding
* ElegantGothicLolita: Complete with a Gothic Lolita-themed bedroom and a fondness for sugary treats. To be precise, whilst Stocking's choice of clothing is usually within Gothic Lolita territory, she has been known to appear in lighter [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lolita_fashion#Sweet_Lolita Sweet Lolita]] getups in "Ghost: The Phantom of Daten City" and a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lolita_fashion#Sailor_Lolita Sailor Lolita]] outfit in "Catfight Club".
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Implied as of "High School Nudical".
* EvilAllAlong: [[spoiler: She dices Panty to pieces and reveals she was a demon all along. [[MindControlEyes Or is she?]]]]
* FaceHeelTurn: If the GainaxEnding is to be believed, anyway. Time will tell if it sticks.
* FallenAngel: Shares this with Panty.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Melancholic.
* FreakyIsCool: Given that she [[LoveAtFirstSight fell in love]] with an absolutely repulsive Ghost in "Ghost: The Phantom of Daten City", it also seems that NauseaFuel is her FetishFuel.
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: Carries around a cat plushie named Honekoneko (literally "Bone Kitty"), which is prone to [[AnimateInanimateObject changing its facial expression (usually mimicking Stocking's) and even licking things]], as well as mimicking Stocking's physical condition, such being fat when Stocking is fat in "The Diet Syndrome".
* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: Is constantly fighting with Panty, who is her utter opposite in terms of their personalities.
* GreenEyes
* {{Hypocrite}}: Has a habit of mocking anyone with less than normal sexual habits. For example, in their very first meeting, she calls the demon sisters "bondage-loving skanks". [[spoiler:She seems to dig bondage and dated a repulsive-looking Ghost.]]
* ImageSong: "CHOCOLAT". Apparently Gainax didn't let Creator/MariyaIse's [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 singing talent]] go unused.
* ItAmusedMe
* {{Jerkass}}[=/=]JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Not as bad as Panty, but she has her moments.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: And [[DualWielding two]] katanas are ''even'' better.
* [[MasterSwordsman Master Swordswoman]]
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: In an interview, Ise divulged that she had once been flashed on a train, noting that while Stocking probably would've made a crack about the size of the flasher's member, she herself couldn't do anything at the time but scream.
* MeaningfulName: Her name is her WeaponOfChoice.
* MorphWeapon: She transforms stockings to get her katanas.
* MulticoloredHair: Navy blue over layer with a pink/magenta under layer.
* NamedWeapons: Stripes I and II.
* NightmareFetishist: She slowly seems to be turning into this.
* NoAccountingForTaste: In "Ghost: The Phantom of Daten City" she falls in love with a ghost who is the most absolutely disgusting being around.
* OrgasmicallyDelicious: She enjoys sweets a bit too much.
* PunchClockHero
* PutOnABus: [[spoiler: In "Panty + Brief", she gets sent back to Heaven without Panty. To add insult to injury, Stocking does not physically appear in that episode's 5-second-long OP.]]
** [[spoiler: TheBusCameBack]]: [[spoiler:In "Bitch Girls".]]
* RapunzelHair: It stretches all the way down to her knees.
* SweetTooth: [[Pantheon/{{Food}} The goddess of sweets here in TV Tropes]], her X-ray sequence in the intro shows what's in her mind: "Sweets, sweets, sweets, [[OneOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers goth,]] sweets".
** "Sex and the Daten City" shows her maintaining a dessert review blog.
** "The Diet Syndrome"'s MonsterOfTheWeek makes unnaturally fattening sweets, via a virus. To say this impacts Stocking's waist line is an understatement.
* TallDarkAndSnarky
* TaremeEyes
* TragicKeepsake: The poop engagement ring she got from the ghost in "Ghost: The Phantom of Danten City" [[spoiler: right before he gets sent to Heaven]].
* TooKinkyToTorture: When Stocking gets tied up by a pair of Ghosts, she starts blushing and remarks that she "could get used to this." This is also referenced in "1 Angry Ghost", where the girls are being electrocuted. Panty seems to be in pain, but Stocking says the electrocution is "Ecstasy".
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist
* VaporWear: So Panty can go GunsAkimbo.
* WeakButSkilled
* WindsOfDestinyChange: Implied in "The Stripping" to have the power of good luck.
* ZettaiRyouiki: She wears striped thigh-highs that doubles as swords.

!!Garterbelt
[[quoteright:222:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Garterbelt_9717.png]]
->''If you don't wanna be stuck here forever, the only option you pathetic excuses for anything resembling angels have is to buy your way back into Heaven with Heaven Coins you collect exterminatin' evil Ghosts! Contrary to popular belief, you are not here to collect men or sugar! So focus and stop actin' like fatass hoes!''

->'''Voiced by:''' KoujiIshii (JP), Creator/ChristopherSabat (EN)

A priest who acts as Panty's and Stocking's boss and caretaker during their stay on Earth. Explains the missions to the duo with great gusto despite the fact that the girls are less than enthusiastic about working. All but stated to be gay. [[spoiler: He was once a ruthless gangster who was killed, went to heaven, sent back in time, and dropped back on Earth to live through all of history to become a messenger of God.]]
-----
* AfroAsskicker
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:Garterbelt was essentially [[Film/{{Scarface 1983}} Tony Montana]] until he was finally gunned down and sent to Heaven, who sent him back to earth for some kind of MissionFromGod.]]
* BackFromTheDead: When he dies, he explodes in clay animation-style as with the Ghosts. The animation itself reverses the scene when he is restored.
* BadassBeard
* BadassGay
* BadassPreacher
* BattleStrip: Pulls one off in Episode 13.
* CompleteImmortality: [[spoiler:He explodes when he dies, but because he is assigned by God to keep watching over Panty and Stocking, he un-explodes]].
* CosmicPlaything: "Once Upon a Time in Garterbelt".
* DaChief: Has shades of this, though he keeps the shouting at a reasonable level, considering his agents.
* ChurchMilitant
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Choleric.
* FunnyAfro: Which swells up with pressure if he doesn't [[ADateWithRosiePalms take care of business]]. [[spoiler:His hair was originally in dreadlocks, but they got fried into an afro by God.]]
* GunsAkimbo: Briefly in ''...of the Dead''.
* HammerspaceHair: He pulls out a belt of ammunition out of his afro in Episode 13.
* HotBlooded
* ManlyGay
* MeaningfulName: He's what holds Panty and Stocking together.
* MrExposition
* PaperThinDisguise: Master G. The girls don't recognize him though.
* PedophilePriest: Less pedophile more pederast; he likes 'em young but at least past puberty. Notable are his rather "close" tendencies towards Brief. [[spoiler:It's suggested that he's probably looking out for him since Brief's penis is a MacGuffin.]]
** Confirmed that he likes boys for his own sake in the Sanitary Box shorts. He also likes visiting male prostitutes as well.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler:Originally sent back to Earth during the prehistoric era and has been present during events of biblical history.]]
* {{Robosexual}}: Manages this somehow in the "Trans-homers" episode.
* ScaryBlackMan: Subverted, as he's probably the sanest and least prone to serious violence of the protagonists. [[spoiler:Played straight and hard in his backstory from "Once Upon a Time in Garterbelt".]]
* SeriousBusiness: His lectures on bondage, and the value of underwear.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: Uses shotgun[[GunsAkimbo (s)]] in "...of the Dead".
* TooKinkyToTorture: "Once Upon a Time in Garterbelt".
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: See CompleteImmortality.

!!Chuck
[[quoteright:222:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Chuck_6167.png]]
->''Chuckchuckchuckchuckchuckchuckchuckchuckchuckchuckchuckfuckfuckfuckfuckchuck!..''

->'''Voiced by:''' Takashi Nakamura (JP), Creator/IanSinclair (EN)

Chuck. A brainless, green little Butt Monkey of a pet (?) dog, glutton of everything organic and inorganic, and forget motivation - lacking a single meaningful thought whatsoever; his zero awareness causing his destruction in any number of graphic and hilarious ways... Is used by the heavens to transport paper with clues on the whereabouts of the next ghost (via lightningbolts to the noggin of course). Occasionally helps out on the girls' missions. He tends to be physically abused by the two.
-----

* AlienBlood: His blood is [[SupernaturalIsPurple violet]].
* BadassDriver: Surpassingly skilled at driving Panty and Stocking's car, See-Through. Able to go wheel-to-wheel with an ''actual'' speed demon (whether a [[MechaMook Ghost-posessed vehicle]], or with [[TheRival Fastener]]).
* BigEater: Well he would be, except the rest of the cast usually beat him when he makes a grab for their food.
* BoltOfDivineRetribution: To the skull. Always (although they are 'actually' messenger bolts, which deliver clues on the next target Ghost).
* BoomHeadshot: [[AwesomenessIsVolatile Heavenly]] [[BoltOfDivineRetribution lightning bolts]]. [[MemeticMutation Always]].
* ButtMonkey: Constantly at the receiving end of... well, everything. From electricutions, punched to death, shot at, etc. And amazingly [[UnexplainedRecovery gets better]].
* CarFu: Has a full-on CarFu ''duel'' with Fastener in "Les Diaboliques" while Stocking and Kneesocks ride shotgun and look pretty bored.
* ChekhovsGun: Chuck's big [[spoiler:zipper]].
* ChekhovsGunman: Full-power Chuck in the final episode, not only [[spoiler: unzipping]] himself, but even able to [[spoiler:zip]] back up the [[spoiler:[[{{Hellgate}} Hellsmouth]]]]
* TheChewToy: Literally the [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chuck_gets_beat_up_2286.jpg poster boy]] for this trope. His day starts with a fresh, crisp lightning bolt from the heavens, warms up by being chopped into a couple dozen pieces by either Stocking or Kneesocks, progresses to being run through a blender, and pretty much rolls from there. [[HarmlessElectrocution Electrical]] [[HighVoltageDeath outlets]], [[KatanasAreJustBetter katana]], [[VehicularAssault car wheels]], bycicles, walls that break his headlong flight...
* ChunkySalsaRule: Averted; the Salsa is observed once per episode or more.
* CloudCuckooLander
* CompleteImmortality: And boy, does he need it...
* CosmicPlaything: prone to casual, constant, inexplicable, sudden-onset ultra-violence (being inflicted on him), including whenever God feels like playing with lightning
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: [[spoiler:When ordered to "get serious" in the first season finale, he ''unzips'' and ''turns inside out'' to become an enormous hellhound/bull thing. When the final battle is over, he zips Hell's Gate shut.]]
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Sliced with katana into perfect little cubes, blenderized, crushed in a hand till his organs pop out...
* DeathByOriginStory: With Panty and Stocking (no title drop pun intended) if the ending credits is to be believed.
* DeathFromAbove
* TheDitz
* DogsAreDumb: And yet this one is ''exceptional...'' at the [[FakeWeakness art of]] ObfuscatingStupidity
* {{Expy}}: Of GIR from ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim''. Zim creator Jhonen Vasquez noticed the similarities right away (stating that he's found his own version of [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Mr. Sparkle]]).
* ExtremeOmnisexual: {{Lust}}ful to the point of humping [[AnythingThatMoves anything with a pulse]]... or without ([[PirateNinjaZombieRobot Ghost-]][[{{Robosexual}} trains]] included).
* ExtremeOmnivore: From mobile phones to endless copies of Panty's sex tape.
* GagPenis: Sometimes seen playing with his ...zip, and when deciding to [[spoiler:'get serious']], [[spoiler:[[SuperMode unzips]]]] himself
* HarmlessElectrocution[=/=]HighVoltageDeath: whenever intel on the next Ghost needs to be conveyed, it is always borne on bolts out of the blue, which [[ChewToy unfailingly]] [[CosmicPlaything target]] Chuck's [[BoomHeadshot inflated cranium]] - [[ArtMajorPhysics even though he's usually inside the much taller church building at the time]].
* IronButtMonkey: The most indestructible character of the series
* LightningReveal: Heaven sends messages via lightning strikes [[BoomHeadshot to the skull]] of Chuck (the actual message is on a slip of paper which [[LightningCanDoAnything falls out of his mouth]])
* LudicrousGibs: Usually courtesy of Stocking or Kneesocks' katana, or Fastener's blender.
* MadeOfPlasticine: Squashed and squished and bounced and splattered into a mass of bloody, spongy goo whenever encountering attacking forces, and is able to heal properly.
* MadEye: Often the only thing left of him whenever he gets pulped ([[GoodThingYouCanHeal again]]).
* MeaningfulName: "Chuck" means "zipper" in Japanese (and in fact, so does "Fastener", the name of Chuck's evil counterpart).
* MisterMuffykins: And boy, does he get murdered for it... (again)
* NighInvulnerability: Played for laughs in "Chuck to the Future", complete with {{Shout Out}}s to both [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} T-1000]] and [[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} Dr. Manhattan]]. To put that to perspective, his EvilCounterpart and rival Fastener went limp after [[ItMakesSenseInContext Chuck opened his zipper and let his brain walk out]] which doesn't seem to affect [[CloudCuckooLander Chuck in the least]].
* NonHumanSidekick
* NoOneShouldSurviveThat: He does[[ContractualImmortality ('nt)]].
* ObfuscatingStupidity: the king and master of, and also unsurpassed at combining it with TooDumbToLive. In "Les Diaboliques", this actually effectively conceals him from the attention of the antagonists, enabling him to reach [[TooDumbToLive and]] '''''[[WhatAnIdiot SWALLOW]] [[IdiotBall UP]]''''' the [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny shiny]], [[ArtifactOfDoom demonic]] [[MineralMacGuffin stone]], [[SpannerInTheWorks starting]] a chain of events that leads to the protagonists' victory. Is in fact perfectly capable of reading the situation, co-presenting mission profiles with Garterbelt, understanding his teammates' intentions without verbal or non-verbal cues, precision high-speed driving to screen his teammates from enemy attack or place them into striking position etc...
** Although the intro [[XRaySparks reveals]] his cranium as an 'airhead', [[BlowYouAway air]] is in fact the most intellectual element in astrology. This is reinforced by the [[WindIsGreen association of green]] with air in Oriental astrology (both Chuck and his intro screen are green).
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:He can transform into [[http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh185/Ghostseid/Ghost_Chuck.jpg a titanic horned hellhound]] by turning himself inside-out]].
* PluckyComicRelief: A (sometimes literal) living basketball.
* PrecisionFStrike/ClusterFBomb: Yes, ''both'' in the same instance. In "Les Diaboliques", when Chuck [[SpannerInTheWroks SWALLOWS]] [[WhatDeosThisButtonDo UP]] the [[MineralMcGuffin Ghoststone]] and [[TheRival Fastener]] [[ButtMonkey kicks him repeatedly and rapidly in the gut]], Chuck just as rapidly [[PokemonSpeak intones]] [[PokemonSpeak his]] [[PokemonSpeak own]] [[PokemonSpeak name]]... but about four times instead of Chuck says 'fuck'.
* PokemonSpeak: Chuck Chuck Chuck Chuck Chuck Chuck Chuck...
* SmallAnnoyingCreature
* SnapBack: You might kill him all you like...
* SpannerInTheWorks: By being a [[MisterMuffykins mindless little]] [[ExtremeOmnivore omnivore]], led the protagonists to victory in "Les Diaboliques".
* StayingAlive:
* SuperMode: What he [[spoiler: [[GrowingMusclesSequence turns]] [[{{Hellhound}} into]]]] during the final battle, via [[spoiler:[[ItMakesSenseInContext unzipping]]]] himself and [[DisneyAcidSequence turning himself]] [[spoiler:[[DerangedAnimation inside]] [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment out]]...]]
* TeamPet
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Chopped into a couple dozen pieces, run through a blender, top of skull destroyed bycar wheel.
* TheyKilledKennyAgain: And again, and again, and again... [[http://cdn.pastemagazine.com/www/articles/2008/10/06/YouKilledKenny.jpg this is more or less the story of Chuck]]
* TooDumbToLive
* XRaySparks: Whenever Heaven feels like sending down a bolt on his skull, the contents thereof are revealed (hint: [[TheDitz it's]] [[GeniusDitz air]]).


!!Brief[[spoiler:ers Rock]]
[[quoteright:222:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Brief_5208.png]]
->''You may not believe this, but I'm an expert in the occult! Plus I got this proton pack for my birthday last year and it's awesome!''

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/HiroyukiYoshino (JP), Creator/JoelMcDonald (EN)

Dubbed "Geek Boy" by Panty and Stocking, Brief is a rather timid youth that the girls meet during a mission at a high school. His hobby of researching paranormal activity sometimes leads the girls to the ghost of the episode. Helps out the two whenever he can (sometimes unwillingly). Also has a crush on Panty, though she usually ignores him. [[spoiler:He is the blood kin of Hell's Monkey, which means the kiss of an angel--Panty, as it were--will allow his penis to act as a key to the Hell's Gate, which locks away a primordial, superpowerful Ghost.]]
-----
* {{Adorkable}}: Yes, he does have his fans.
** Taken UpToEleven in "Nothing to Room", with his painfully awkward attempts to talk to both Panty and Stocking (and even Chuck).
* [[ApocalypseMaiden Apocalypse Youth]]: [[spoiler:His dick is the key to Hell.]]
* ArrangedMarriage: [[spoiler: To Scanty so that the mayor may harness the power of his magical dick. ItMakesSenseInContext]].
* AwesomeMcCoolname: [[spoiler:BRIEFERS ROCK.]]
* BeautifulAllAlong: [[spoiler: When his hair is gelled back, he's actually so cute that Panty doesn't recognize him, and even falls for him.]]
* BiggerIsBetterInBed
* {{Bishounen}}: Who knew?
* BlindingBangs
* ButtMonkey: At a lesser extent than Chuck, whose ButtMonkey's level is rather... abusive.
* CallingTheOldManOut: [[spoiler: His father wants to marry him off to the mayor's daughter. Of course, Brief openly states he'd much rather marry Panty]].
* CircumcisionAngst: The fact that Panty seems to really hate foreskin isn't helping... or at least, untill she gets to grips with his [[GagPenis shotgun]].
* ClarkKenting: [[spoiler:To Panty, at least. See HeCleansUpNicely below.]]
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: [[spoiler:Who knew he had it in him?!]]
* DeusSexMachina: [[spoiler:He IS one. His GagPenis unlocks the gates of hell and restores Panty's powers.]]
* DistressedDude
* DoggedNiceGuy: It takes something to still love a girl after she attempts to fill you with bullet holes [[FantasticVoyagePlot from the inside]]. [[spoiler: [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming It finally pays off for him in Episode 12.]]]]
** [[spoiler: Afterward, he's still treated more or less the same by Panty, but she stops calling him "Geek Boy" and starts calling him Brief instead, indicating that they may still have retained ''some'' closeness.]]
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Phlegmatic.
* GagPenis: Implied in "High School Nudical" with the [[FreudWasRight size of his shotgun]].
** [[spoiler:[[{{Foreshadowing}} As fate would have it]], his penis is a MacGuffin and is sought out by the BigBad]].
** [[spoiler:BiggerIsBetterInBed: Subverted. When he ''finally'' gets some from Panty, his sheer size is actually a source of ''pain'' for her. Justified when her hymen was recently restored. The fact that she, an angel, was coming in contact with a Hellish relic might also have played some role in it.]]
* GreenEyes
** [[spoiler:SignificantGreenEyedRedhead]]
* HeCleansUpNicely: [[spoiler:As Briefers Rock, he is so handsome that Panty [[ClarkKenting didn't recognize him until he pointed it out to her]]!]]
* ICallHimMrHappy: He refers to his yin-yang as "Mr. Sticky" in the last episode.
* {{Keet}}
* LoveAtFirstSight: To Panty.
* LoveMartyr
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: He's most often addressed as "Geek Boy".
** [[spoiler:His name "Brief" is also a nickname to his full name, "Briefers Rock"]].
* OnlySaneMan: Sometimes takes up this role.
* RedheadInGreen
* SecretlyWealthy: [[spoiler:The heir to the Rock Foundation.]]
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: When Panty transforms his underwear in "High School Nudical", it turns into a big pump-action shotgun. Too bad it's a two-pump chump.
* ShoutOut: To ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' and [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater The Pain]]. [[spoiler:And possibly Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio with his hair gelled back]].
** [[spoiler: Going along with the Ghostbusters shout out, and given that his dick is the key to hell, that would make him the Keymaster, right?]]
* SpearCounterpart: [[spoiler:He looks an awful lot like a male version of Panty with his bangs out of the way.]]
** [[spoiler:MeaningfulName]]: [[spoiler: Panty and Briefs... both are underwears!]]

* TagalongKid: The unofficial KidSidekick to the group.

!!Scanty Daemon
[[quoteright:222:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Scanty_6323.png]]
->''Bravo, Kneesocks. Bravo! Continue your assiduous assault until those hackney angels are broke! Shame them into the depths of despair and then annihilate them!''

->'''Voiced by:''' Yuka Komatsu (JP), Creator/ColleenClinkenbeard (EN)

An agent from Hell [[spoiler: working for the mayor of the city]]. Unlike the angels, she and her sister Kneesocks are intent on ruling with law and order (their own brand of it, of course) and speak in a more elegant style. However, Scanty has a [[HairTriggerTemper very short temper]] and takes their rivalry with the angels very seriously upon losing to them for the first time. Like Panty, she can also turn her panties into guns, in this case revolvers.
-----
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Dark red like her sister Kneesocks.
* ArrangedMarriage: [[spoiler: To Brief so that the mayor may harness the power of his magical dick. ItMakesSenseInContext.]]
* BadassAdorable
* BifurcatedWeapon: She can also combine her revolvers to form a shotgun.
* BitingTheHandkerchief: More out of anger than grief.
* CuteLittleFangs
* CuteMonsterGirl
* DarkActionGirl
* EvilCounterpart: To Panty.
* {{Expy}}: Scanty has more than just a passing resemblance to Nia of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. Double points because it's Gainax.
** Her red skin, long, wild green hair and yellow/green, spiral-y eyes also makes her bear an uncanny resemblance to Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann itself.
* GoshDangItToHeck: Mostly played straight in the dub, with only two aversions.
* GunsAkimbo
* HairReboot: A chunk of her hair gets burnt in "If Angels Wore Swimsuits", but fixes itself moments later.
* HairTriggerTemper: Ever since her fight with Panty, Scanty gets pissed at virtually anything that comes out of the angels' mouths.
* HornedHumanoid
* LadyOfWar: To an extent. Elegant and armed with an revolver, that temper of hers wouldn't be considered graceful.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Like the rest of the characters who aren't [[spoiler: [[EvilAllAlong Stocking]]]], she did ''not'' see [[spoiler: Corset's backup plan]] coming.
* NamedWeapons: Double Gold Lacytanga.
* NobleDemon: Neither she nor her sister are nice but they're very big on [[RunningGag "Rrrrrrrrrrrules"]]. Also it may have been [[PragmaticVillainy for pragmatism's sake]] but they're both incensed that the angels Panty and Stocking would let Brief (their friend/lackey) DIE just for a ''possible'' shot at them.
* TheOjou: She even has the noblewoman's laugh.
* PantyShot: When she gets knocked down the stairs with Kneesocks in "Bitch Girls".
* PrecisionFStrike: In the dub [[spoiler: Episode 13, when Hellsmonkey is freed from his prison.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Kneesocks:''' Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Scanty:''' Holy motherfucking God dammit shit!]]
* RevolversAreJustBetter
* RichBitch
* ScarsAreForever: [[spoiler: At least by the end of Episode 13, in which Panty throws a burning pair of panties at her face, leaving a burn mark that lasts the rest of the episode.]]
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: In the dub, going so far as to replace the majority of the cursing in the original script.
* ShoutOut: Both she and her sister could be a shout out to Him of ''The Powerpuff Girls''
* [[BrotherSisterIncest Sister-Sister Incest]]: [[spoiler:Revealed in Episode 12 that she and Kneesocks apparently often engage in... certain activities when the Mayor isn't looking.]]
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: With dear sister Kneesocks, of course.
* TrrrillingRrrs: Scanty and Kneesocks are kinda big on "Rrrrrrrules".
* TsurimeEyes: Possibly the most extreme case in the entire series.

!!Kneesocks Daemon
[[quoteright:222:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kneesocks_3419.png]]
->''There, are you happy? Our time has been pilfered and you've nothing to show for it! We are still in charge of this school, we're intelligent and pulchritudinous, and the students here will always worship us!''

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AyumiFujimura (JP), Creator/CheramiLeigh (EN)

Scanty's sister and another agent of Hell [[spoiler: also working for the mayor]]. Pretty much the same as her sister, though she's the more outspoken one of the two, plus she's far more proficient at controlling her temper than Scanty. Unlike Stocking, her knee socks turn into scythes.
-----
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Dark red like her sister Scanty.
** Oddly enough, blushing makes her turn a ''lighter'' shade of red.
* BadassAdorable
* CuteLittleFangs
* CuteMonsterGirl
* DarkActionGirl
* DualWielding
* {{Expy}}: Her hair brings to mind Yoko of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. Given that Scanty resembles Nia, its most likely that this was intentional.
* EvilCounterpart: To Stocking.
* TheGlassesComeOff: She doesn't wear her glasses at all throughout "If the Angels Wore Swimsuits".
* GratuitousEnglish: UpToEleven; some of her sentences are practically a 50-50 split between Japanese and English.
* GoshDangItToHeck: In the dub. Kneesocks is the only main character who never swears throughout the entire series.
* HornedHumanoid
* HotBlooded
* LadyOfWar: More so than her sister.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Like the rest of the characters who aren't [[spoiler: [[EvilAllAlong Stocking]]]], she did ''not'' see [[spoiler: Corset's backup plan]] coming.
* LuminescentBlush: Usually when particularly angry/her disguise is slipping.
* {{Meganekko}}
* NamedWeapons: Double Gold Spandex.
* NobleDemon: Neither she nor her sister are nice but they're very big on [[RunningGag "Rrrrrrrrrrrules"]]. Also it may have been [[PragmaticVillainy for pragmatism's sake]] but they're both incensed that the angels Panty and Stocking would let Brief (their friend/lackey) DIE just for a ''possible'' shot at them.
* TheOjou
* PaperThinDisguise: It's a wonder she managed to fool Panty and Stocking into thinking she was a roulette operator... by simply taking off her glasses and putting on a mustache.
** Averted in "1 Angry Ghost".
* RichBitch
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: In the dub.
* SinisterScythe
* [[BrotherSisterIncest Sister-Sister Incest]]: [[spoiler:Revealed in Episode 12 that she and Scanty apparently often engage in... certain activities when the Mayor isn't looking.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: "Knee Socks" according to the soundtrack.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Though she's more [[LargeHam outspoken]] and uptight than her sister, she's less emotional than her sister. Her soft side only comes out around Scanty (causing her to turn pink).
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: With dear sister Scanty, of course.
* TrrrillingRrrs: See above.
* WindsOfDestinyChange: Implied in "The Stripping" to have the power to impose bad luck on others.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
* ZettaiRyouiki

!!Fastener
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-fastenera_png_6218.png]]
->''Fasten'er...''

->'''Voiced by:''' Miki Makiguchi (JP), Christopher Bevins (EN)

Scanty and Kneesocks' pet dog (?) and Chuck's archrival since college. (Appears) much more competent than Chuck.
-----
* CarFu: Has a full-on CarFu ''duel'' with Chuck in "Les Diaboliques" while Stocking and Kneesock ride shotgun and look pretty bored.
* EvilCounterpart: To Chuck.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: Transforms into a ''[[http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh185/Ghostseid/Ghost_Fastener.jpg dragon]]'' by turning himself inside-out.]]
* NighInvulnerability: Though not shown until nearly the end of the series, he can take just as much abuse as Chuck.
* NonHumanSidekick
* PintSizedPowerhouse: To an extent.
* PokemonSpeak: Fastenaaa...
* SinisterScythe: [[NaturalWeapon Fastener's limbs are apparently razor-sharp.]] Though he's too small to be a real threat to anything big he can easily tear Chuck to pieces, though that rarely even fazes Chuck.

The mayor of Daten City [[spoiler:and father of Scanty and Kneesocks. He is a [[BondageIsBad BD]][[CombatSadomasochist SM]] demon who wears a very tight corset. He seeks out the blood kin of Hell's Monkey, Brief, whose [[GagPenis penis]] acts as the key to Hell]].

* EvilCounterpart: [[spoiler:Both he and Garterbelt have a heavy bondage theme, and have X-shaped scars on the opposite sides of their chests.]]

-->[[spoiler:'''Corset:''' The weak wear the chains, and the strong wield the whip!]]
