!Kaname family

!!Junko Kaname
[[quoteright:235:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/junkoPMMMtvtropes_6863.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/YukoGoto (JP), Creator/CarrieSavage (EN)

Madoka's mother and the main breadwinner in the family, who works as an executive for a famous company.
----
* AlcoholicParent: When she comes home from work she drinks. In a later conversation with Madoka about growing up, she says that adults drink because of their responsibilities.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Inverted. Madoka's friends are envious of her cool mom.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Both dark pink.
* DrowningMySorrows: She does this with Kazuko [[spoiler:after Sayaka's [[DueToTheDead funeral]]]].
* FirstNameBasis: Refers to Madoka's teacher by her first name, and implies that she's known her for a while.
* [[GoodParents Good Mother]]:
** She advises Madoka when she's worried about [[spoiler: Sayaka]], notices if her daughter is unhappy, and is generally cool.
** There's her conversation with Madoka in the second last episode, in which she sternly tells her daughter to look out for herself and not be selfish, but listens to Madoka's arguments [[spoiler: and eventually allows her to leave the shelter.]]
** She's on border of an HeroicBSOD when [[spoiler: Sayaka dies and Madoka is utterly depressed.]] Junko blames herself ''heavily'' for that, and Kazuko has to talk her out of it.
* HairDecorations: She often wears a black bow-shaped clip.
* HappilyMarried: To Tomohisa. Downplayed but present. The happy marriage is part of the 'happy family life' that Homura tells Madoka to cherish.
* [[spoiler:LaserGuidedAmnesia]]: [[spoiler:Due to Madoka's wish [[RetGone retconning her out of existence]], Junko thinks that Madoka is simply Tatsuya's imaginary friend.]]
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Masculine Girl to Tomohisa's Feminine Boy because she's a corporate ladder climber and he's a great cook.
* NotAMorningPerson: It takes her children a fair amount of effort to wake her up.
* OfficeLady: Averted. She's clearly devoted to a career ''not'' just as a means to support herself until she gets married and settles down ([[CareerVersusFamily as is still very common for Japanese women]]). In this way her behavior is much more in-line with the average {{Salaryman}}.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: She gives Madoka a surprising amount of freedom, and does show concern for her like a good parent should.
* ShesGotLegs: She is sometimes seen wearing a mini skirt.
%%* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: She and Kazuko are the grown-up version.

!!Tomohisa Kaname
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tomohisaPMMMtvtropes_5539.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' TetsuyaIwanaga (JP), Creator/KyleHebert (EN)

Madoka's dad, as well as the one taking care of the house and the kids.
----
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Both brown.
* [[GoodParents Good Father]]: Like his wife.
* HappilyMarried: To Junko. See her entry.
* HouseHusband: He stays home and cooks and such. He's a great cook.
* [[spoiler:LaserGuidedAmnesia]]: [[spoiler:Due to Madoka's wish [[RetGone retconning her out of existence]], Tomohisa thinks that Madoka is simply Tatsuya's imaginary friend.]]
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Feminine Boy to Junko's Masculine Girl. See her entry.
%%* {{Megane}}
%%* NiceGuy
* SatelliteCharacter: In relation to the rest of his family. He gets one heart-to-heart talk with his daughter, concerning Junko.

!!Tatsuya Kaname
[[quoteright:181:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TasuyaPMMM_4901.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' KaoriMizuhashi (JP), Creator/StephanieSheh (EN)

Madoka's three year-old younger brother.
----
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Averted. He and Madoka seem to get along quite well, [[spoiler:and he's also one of two people to remember Madoka after she wiped herself out of existence]].
%%* BlushSticker
* CheerfulChild: He is unaware and seperate from the agnst of this series.
* ChildrenAreInnocent: [[spoiler:According WordOfGod, this is the reason why Tatsuya still remembers Madoka. He sees her among his family and because he still doesn't understand why she isn't supposed to exist, the universal LaserGuidedAmnesia doesn't work on him. As he grows up, he will gradually forget about it.]]
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Like the rest of his family.
* [[spoiler:RippleEffectProofMemory]]: [[spoiler:Aside from Homura, he is the only one of two who remembers Madoka: he draws her figure on the ground and happily says her name when he sees Homura wearing Madoka's hair ribbons. Junko and Tomohisa believe that "Madoka" is his ImaginaryFriend. The reason why he still remembers her is because he can still see her, but he's too innocent to understand that she shouldn't exist, so when he grows up this trope will be averted.]]
* TaremeEyes: Like his sister because he's a cutie.
* [[spoiler: WalkingSpoiler]]: [[spoiler: His most prominent role is the fact that he remembers Madoka, despite her sacrifice. It's worse because a lot of fanart of him has Goddess Madoka in them]].

!Other characters

!!Hitomi Shizuki
[[quoteright:217:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hitomiPMMMtvtropes_8515.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/RyokoShintani (JP), Creator/ShelbyLindley (EN)

Madoka and Sayaka's classmate and friend. Often walks to school with them, and while she cares for her friends she sometimes feels left out of their deals.
----
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Becomes this in Sayaka's route in the game [[spoiler:after Sayaka tells her she's not giving up on Kyosuke.]]
* BiTheWay: After calling Homura "beautiful" [[http://wiki.puella-magi.net/File:Gay_for_homura.jpg in the game]] Sayaka will ask if she's into girls. Hitomi will say that she is a little interested.
%%* BrutalHonesty: In regards to [[spoiler:Kamijo]].
%%* ClassRepresentative
* CramSchool: Goes to after-school classes for piano and Japanese arts. She laments that it leaves her less time to study or be with her friends.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Both green.
* DistressBall:
** In Episode 4 she catches one, and [[spoiler:is one of the people who got a "Witch's Kiss" that drove them into a PsychicAssistedSuicide. Madoka and Sayaka save her and the others.]]
** The same thing happens to her in ''A Different Story'', with a twist: [[spoiler: she apparently tells Sayaka about her feelings for Kyosuke before getting possessed by a Witch; when Sayaka comes across her later, she walks away without attempting to help her. Luckily for Hitomi, Mami is still there to rescue her. [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Sayaka is NOT happy about it]].]]
* ItsAllMyFault: According to Kazuko, Hitomi blames herself for [[spoiler:Sayaka's "death"]]. However, FromACertainPointOfView, [[spoiler:[[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom she isn't that far off for claiming responsibility]]]].
* JapaneseHonorifics: Somewhat more formal than Sayaka and Madoka, both of whom she addresses with "[[FirstNameBasis first name]]-san".
* {{Keigo}}: Not normally, but in Episode 4 she lapses into a weird bout of extremely formal speech, even calling Madoka "[[LastNameBasis Kaname]]-san." [[spoiler: It's due to the influence of the episode's witch.]]
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: In Episode 9, she asks Madoka what is going on with her and Sayaka, concerned about Sayaka and wanting to reconcile with her. Madoka refuses to tell her.
* [[spoiler:LoveTriangle]]: [[spoiler:Like Sayaka, she loves Kyosuke. She's also the one [[PluckyGirl who takes the active role]]: when Sayaka doesn't confess to him despite Hitomi urging her to do so, she does it.]]
* MuggleBestFriend: To Madoka and Sayaka because she never becomes a magical girl or aware of their world.
* NiceGirl: Exihibit A would be how she deals with the love triangle. [[spoiler: She likes Kyosuke but is aware that Sayaka likes him too so she gives her friend 24 hours to confess. If she doesn't, then she will confess instead.]]
* OfficialCouple: With [[spoiler:Kyosuke]].
* {{Ojou}}: A ProperLady type. She's skilled in piano playing, Japanese dance and tea ceremony, aside from being very ladylike and softspoken and coming from a rich family.
* PluckyGirl: Explicitly [[http://wiki.puella-magi.net/Hitomi_Shizuki#Trivia referred to as such]] by Creator/RyokoShintani. Creator/AoiYuki and Creator/ChiwaSaito agree.
* ShipperOnDeck: She thinks that Madoka and Sayaka have "[[SchoolgirlLesbians progressed]]" after a certain something happened in the mall, and hilariously excited about it. [[spoiler: In FridgeBrilliance, it's because Hitomi hoped that Sayaka was a lesbian or lesbian-leaning bi, or at least that she'd prefer Madoka over Kyosuke... so they'd both be happy and wouldn't have to "fight" for the latter.]]
* TakeAThirdOption: Attempted when [[spoiler: instead of either renouncing Kyosuke or talking to him behind Sayaka's back, Hitomi tells Sayaka to confess first and adds that ''she'' will do it if Sayaka refuses]].
* TownGirls: The Femme to Madoka's Neither and Sayaka's Butch because of her ProperLady demeanor.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: [[spoiler:Because she confessed to Kyosuke, [[BreakTheCutie the already troubled]] Sayaka [[FallenHero goes off the deep end and becomes a witch]], which leads to Kyoko's MercyKill HeroicSacrifice, which means Homura has no one to fight with against [[HeroKiller Walpurgisnacht]]... Until Madoka [[TakesAThirdOption takes her third option]].]]
* WhamLine: [[spoiler:"Can you face your true feelings?"]]
* YamatoNadeshiko: Developing into one as she is polite and soft-spoken and taking Japanese dance and tea ceremony classes.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: When your best friends have bright pink and blue hair, green isn't unusual.
* YouHave48Hours: More exactly: [[spoiler: "I'm sorry, Sayaka, but if you don't confess your love to Kyosuke in 24 hours, '''I''' will confess."]]

!!Kyosuke Kamijo
[[quoteright:247:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/KyosukeTvTropes_1608.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' SeikoYoshida (JP), Creator/MarianneMiller (EN)

Sayaka's friend and her crush. A wrist injury he received in an accident left him unable to play his beloved violin, and he drudges through a barely-hidden depression as he rehabilitates at the hospital. Sayaka's wish in her Magical Girl contract is to heal his wrist.
----
* AlliterativeName: Kyosuke Kamijo.
* BerserkButton: Hearing "music (he) can't play" is such a sore spot for him, he accuses Sayaka of wanting to torture him.
* {{Bishounen}}: Kyosuke is a fairly young example, in particular in the anime, where his voice is more fitting for a younger boy.
* CareerEndingInjury: How much more redundant can you get with a violinist whose hand is broken?
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:His hand is the StartOfDarkness for the new character arc.]]
* ChildhoodFriends: With Sayaka.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Both brown.
* DisabledLoveInterest: Sayaka's 'courtship' consisted of visiting him in the library and listening to music that he couldn't play himself anymore.
* DisabledMeansHelpless: This idea is behind his mental state pre-healing because his disability is a CareerEndingInjury.
* IllBoy: Helping him recover is what drove Sayaka to making her wish. Kyoko told her to exploit this instead and make him dependent on her.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: [[http://wiki.puella-magi.net/Kyousuke_Kamijou#Kamijou.27s_Feeling_Towards_Sayaka Confirmed by the staff.]] He did care for Sayaka, but considered their relationship as PlatonicLifePartners. The whole [[spoiler:not telling her about leaving the hospital]] was less {{Jerkass}} behavior and more genuine obliviousness.
* KickTheDog: In Sayaka's own route he sees [[spoiler:her in state of live decomposition (due to the distance of her soul gem), panics and calls her a ''disgusting monster'', mentioning how Hitomi is "the only one for him". His {{Squick}} reaction is somewhat understandable, but adding the line about Hitomi?]]
* ObliviousToLove: Sayaka didn't have time to get his side of the story, but the fact that he didn't bother to tell her [[spoiler:that he left the hospital]] says a lot. [[spoiler:Hitomi has to spell out her interest in him later.]]
* OfficialCouple: With [[spoiler:Hitomi]].
* PetTheDog: The scene from the PSP game where he shows Sayaka how to hold a violin after his accident shows how someone like him could have [[spoiler:both]] Sayaka [[spoiler:and Hitomi]] fall for him.
* SatelliteLoveInterest: His relevance to the plot revolves around being Sayaka's crush.
* ScarsAreForever: We get to see his injured hand in the manga. It's not pretty.
* StepfordSmiler: He pretended to be more or less fine at first, but in Episode 3 we start to see how badly damaged he is in the mental sense. [[spoiler:It becomes a full-blown HeroicBSOD in Episode 4.]]
* ThereAreNoTherapists: Double subverted--looking at the poor guy's mental state, it doesn't seem that the therapists are at all effective.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: [[spoiler:The fact that Sayaka will do anything for him makes this apparent by the StartOfDarkness story arc. She healed his arm, after all, but since he cannot see her love when he plays the violin after his hand is healed, this only amplifies her sadness.]]

!!Kazuko Saotome
[[quoteright:183:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/KazukoPMMM_3251.png]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JunkoIwao (JP), Creator/KarenStrassman (EN)

Madoka's homeroom teacher. She has trouble with men and is a perennial drinking buddy of Junko.
----
* ChristmasCake: Much to her own dismay, and her bemoaning this often comes up during her lessons. The fact that her long time friend Junko already has a daughter (Madoka) old enough to be her student makes her feel worse.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Like the others on this list.
* DrowningMySorrows: With Madoka's mother Junko, after [[spoiler:Sayaka's [[DueToTheDead funeral]].]]
* FirstNameBasis: With Junko, her long time friend.
* {{Meganekko}}: If she could find a guy who likes "glasses girls" her relationship issues could end.
* OlderThanSheLooks: If she and Junko are close in age, this means Kazuko is at ''very'' least in her late twenties / early thirties. Yet she looks like a college-student, while Junko still looks young but a little more grown up.
* RunningGag: Kazuko's failed relationships, and her warnings to the class about becoming like the people involved.
* {{Sensei-chan}}: Talking about her relationship problems as if they were lessons and picking on the same student every time give this impression.
* TwoTeacherSchool: Sort of. A few other teachers are shown momentarily, but they don't have names or personalities. The nurse's office is brought up multiple times, but we never even see the office, let alone the SchoolNurse.

!!Kyoko Sakura's family
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/BanjoGinga (Kyoko's father), Creator/KikukoInoue (Kyoko's mother), Mami Shitara (Momo)

* AgeLift: Kyoko's sister has a totally different appearance in the manga adaptation and looks much older. This might be because the manga artist was working from earlier storyboards. The same artist later drew ''The Different Story'', where Momo has the correct age and appearence.
* [[spoiler:GoMadFromTheRevelation: When Minister Sakura learned about Kyoko's SelflessWish, he crossed ''both'' [[DespairEventHorizon Event]] [[MoralEventHorizon Horizons]].]]
* GoodShepherd: According to Kyokou, Mr.Sakura was brought to tears by the troubles in the world and preached about ways to resolve them.
* JapaneseChristian: Mr.Sakura was a priest of undisclosed denomination, and then he decided to make his own denomination and was shunned for it.
* [[spoiler:KillTheCutie: Kyoko's mom and little sister Momo.]]
* NoNameGiven: The [[AllThereInTheManual third drama CD]] reveals that Kyoko's sister is named Momo.
* [[spoiler:PaterFamilicide: Mr.Sakura killed his family in a fit of madness.]]
* [[spoiler:{{Posthumous Character}}s: All of them are dead by the time Kyoko arrives. That's why she's so bitter.]]
* PureIsNotGood <- -> TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: Kyoko describes Minister Sakura in these terms [[spoiler:before he went mad and commited his PaterFamilicide.]] Confirmed in the third Drama CD, where he's portrayed as a NiceGuy [[spoiler: ''also'' right before [[FromBadToWorse it got worse]].]]
-->'''Kyoko''': He was an honest man and way too nice. He's the kind of guy who'd read the papers and start tearing up cause he couldn't figure out how to make things better.
* ThemeNaming: [[AllThereInTheManual The third drama CD]] reveals that Kyoko's sister is named Momo - "peach". Kyoko's name in Japanese [[AlternateCharacterReading can be read as meaning "apricot".]] Which led to quite the confusion at first, as another reading of the same characters is "Anko" and people thought she was named "Anko Sakura" at first.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Kyoko's sister Momo, in the [[AllThereInTheManual third drama CD.]]
