->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/RieKugimiya (Japanese), Eva Christensen (English)
Cattleya and Owen's only son, who tags along with his mother.
----
* AscendedExtra: From being a minor character in Cattleya's backstory whose only role was being TheLoad for her mother to having a bigger role in the animated adaptations.
* CharacterDevelopment: Starts showing signs of growth after his time with Airi, becoming more reliable and focused.
* {{Expy}}: Has a passing resemblance with Taro from ''VideoGame/Disgaea2CursedMemories''.
** And just like his mom, he shares some backgrounds with Ohgami Daigoro from ''Manga/LoneWolfAndCub'', except he's not an assassin like Daigoro.
* GenreBlind:[[spoiler:He's affected by this in the [=OVAs=], when he tries to go after Airi, forgotting he's JustAKid and the fact, being a male, he doesn't have a place in a female-oriented society]].
* HumanShield: Her mother uses him as a shield sometimes and he doesn't see to mind.
* TheLoad: Rana literally hangs off of Cattleya during battles, often in inconvenient positions.
* MoeCouplet: With his mother Cattleya, as well as Airi.
* MommasBoy
* MoralityPet: for Airi.
* TagalongKid
* [[TalkingToHimself Talking to Themselves]]: In the English dub with his mother, as they share the same voice actress and in Japanese, with Melona.

* {{Expy}} - Of his own son Rana, and also of ConanTheBarbarian, possibly.
* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen - We don't see his face (only his body), and he finally appears in the final episode of the second season, but played straight in the 3rd OVA, when we only can see him behind his back.
* InformedAbility: For the man said be a Dragon Slayer, he sure didn't show off such abilities, or [[spoiler:how Aldra defeated him in the first place, did he put a fight or was easily overthrown? We will never know]].
* RetiredBadass: The story says so... but we don't get see how badass he was, only that he retired to become a blacksmith.
* SatelliteCharacter: Given how little characterization Owen has, if any at all; it merely serves to stabilish Cattleya as an ActionMom and give her a reason to compete on the Queen's Blade, she had to consumate with a man for Rana to exist after all.
* WalkingShirtlessScene

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Snap_2012_02_21_18h43m53s_002__2730.png

----
* {{Expy}} - Possibly (in the anime version), of [[http://hokuto.wikia.com/wiki/Tesshin_Kasumi Tesshin Kasumi]], [[FistOfTheBlueSky Kenshiro Kasumi's father.]]
* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen - Played with: we don't see his face in the first episodes, but appears entirely in the rest of the series (and later playing an important role), but still played straight in the original gamebooks, the videogames (he appears as a shadow, but his silhouette is identical to his form in the anime) and the manga (albeit with a different character design).
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold - He can be cruel to Claudette, but he still worries about her in his own way.
* KarmaHoudini - He's pretty lucky that Claudette, despise hating nobility, and disliking the way he treats her, still loves him, even if she had the chance of kill him [[spoiler:or let him die at Risty's hands]] if she wanted it, especially when he arrested her for not being able to bring Leina back. Instead, she tries to getting Leina back home once again, after getting rid of the guards that arrested her.

----

->'''Voiced by:''' Kokoro Kikuchi (Japanese); Elizabeth Williams (Season 1), Emlyn Morinelli (Season 2) (English)
Nanael's best friend and MoralityPet.
----
* ActionGirl - Subverted: she's the only female with no combat experience. [[spoiler: At least until the 5th OVA.]]
* [[ByTheBookCop By-the-Book Angel]]: Unlike Nanael, she follows the laws of the heaven to the core, no matter what. [[spoiler:Even if that means trying to kill her friend Nanael after becoming a FallenAngel, albeit Nanael attacked her first]].
* CanonForeigner - She's an anime-exclusive character.
* {{Expy}} - She looks like an angelic version of [[ToLoveRu Momo Velia Deviluke]]. What makes it funnier is that Momo has a twin sister named ''Nana''.
** She's also an expy from an angel named Liliel who's only named (but never appeared) in Nanael's ending epilogue after failing to win the tournament in the gamebooks' continuity.

----
!!Maria
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Maria_1614.png
->''The Holy Warrior'' (anime), ''The Master Swordswoman''[[note]]''Kensei'' or Sword Saint[[/note]] (Gamebook continuity) and [[spoiler:''The Beast Princess'']] (novels)
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/SanaeKobayashi
Leina & Elina's biological mother (as well as Claudette's stepmother) who died years before the events of the series takes place.
----
* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead - The Swamp Witch revives her in the novels...]]
* [[spoiler:CameBackWrong - ...with the added skill of being able to transform herself into a weretigress.]]
* CynicismCatalyst: She's the reason why everyone in the Vance family (minus Leina, in less degree) are so mentally scarred, due of her death.
* {{Expy}} - Besides looking a lot like Leina, background-wise she shares many quirks with ''Marie'' Heinlein, Geese Howard's wife and Rock Howard's mother from [[FatalFury Garou: Mark of the Wolves]], since both were blondes, their respectives sons loved her and their respective deaths affected their sons even as grown-ups. [[MultipleChoicePast Depending of the continuity]], she died fighting (anime) or died of an illness (manga), just like Marie Heinlein died in ''Garou''.
** In the novels [[spoiler:she is a expy of both Marie and her husband ''[[FatalFury Geese]]'' when the Swamp Witch brings back her to life]].
* KilledOffScreen: The animated series is the only adaptation who shows the aftermath of her death in a flashback scene, when some soldiers bring to her husband her blood-stained armor, meaning she is dead for good.
* MasterSwordswoman: In life
* MeaningfulName - OK, her name is ''Maria'' and her battle name is ''The Holy Warrior''. [[Literature/TheBible Where I heard about that name before?]]
** Not to mention one of the [[SpellMyNameWithAnS many translations of Leina's battle name]] is ''The Exiled Virgin''.
* MultipleChoicePast - In the anime and the gamebooks, she died while fighting in a Queen's Blade tournament, but in the ''Hide and Seek'' manga she died due of illness instead.
* NotSoSmallRole: As you can see, despise being dead before the events of the series began, she is the ''QueensBlade'' version of [[spoiler:[[Manga/{{Naruto}} Rin Nohara]]: '''Her entire family goes straight to hell.''']]
* TheLostLenore: For everyone in her family.
* PosthumousCharacter: Her death affected the whole Vance family ''really hard'', to the grade her daughters are still ''dealing'' about the topic as grown-ups.
** DeathByOriginStory: But her death becomes the motivation for Leina to become a warrior at the beginning of the series
* [[HeWhoMustNotBeSeen She Who Must Not Be Seen]] - Even more than her husband in the ''Hide and Seek'' manga, since we don't see her face there, only her body, but averted later in the anime in the second season and in the novels.
* StrongFamilyResemblance - She's basically Leina as an adult, with long hair and without Leina's braids. Averted in the novels, since she looks too different from Leina
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth - According with Echidna in the QB's novelizations, she considers her as a "kindred spirit" and as a really, nice woman in her lifetime. In fact, it's really implied her death also affected ''Echidna'' in some way, since she's trying to protect her daughters in her own way, no matter what.
----
!!Hans
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hansqb_7748.jpg
->''The Souvenir Store Owner''
->'''Voiced by:''' Tomohisa Asou (Drama [=CDs=])
----
* AuthorAvatar - He's a collective avatar for Hobby Japan (the creators of the QueensBlade franchise) as a whole.
* CanonForeigner - Played with it: He only appears physically in Menace's [[AllThereIntheManual sidestory]], in the ''Spiral Chaos'' games as the store owner who sell stuff to the players (until Cattleya and Ymir replaces him later on game) and as the faceless blogger in the Hobby Japan's QueensBlade homepage, but he doesn't appear in the anime series or in the manga adaptations.
* LiteraryAgentHypothesis: Implied somewhat, especially in the gamebook continuity, being the avatar for [[WordOfGod Hobby Japan]].
* [[QuicklyDemotedWoman Quickly Demoted Man]] - We don't see him ever again after Cattleya and Ymir demoted him.
* TheVoiceless: He doesn't speak in the videogames, despise having a voice actor in the Drama [=CDs=], unlike Cattleya and Ymir.
----
!!Belphe & Dogor
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aldraplushies1_5002.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MitsuoIwata (Belphe) and Masahito Yabe (Dogor)
A pair of plushies that Aldra had in her house in ''Rebellion'', and they're possesed by a pair of two evil spirits summoned by Aldra [[spoiler:after Ymir forces her to work for her in exchange of her husband.]]
----
* BearsAreBadNews - Belphe
* CastingGag: It's not the first time Creator/MitsuoIwata (Belphe) voice [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters someone]] [[VideoGame/TengaiMakyou who likes to play with fire]], or [[Anime/{{Vandread}} some small fellow]] [[Anime/GaoGaiGar who follows another protagonist]].
* [[CreepyDoll Creepy Plushies]]
* CuteIsEvil
* DirtyOldMan - Both of them, maybe even more than ''Setra!''
* ImAHumanitarian - They want to eat Aldra at first and anyone who stands in their way.
* MeaningfulName - Both characters are named after ''Belphegor'', one of the seven princes of Hell in Demonology and related with lust, hence why both of them are [[DirtyOldMan so perverted.]]
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily
* TheOneGuy - Along with Taira (Huit's assistant) and Dogra, they are the only recurrent males in ''Rebellion''. And not only that: While they're not humans, they're the ''only males'' in the entire ''Queen's Blade'' franchise (excluding Jean from the videogames) able to fight against any named female character ''on equal footing'' [[spoiler:and they could be able to kill both Annelotte and Izumi if Maria/Leina had not come to their aid.]]
* PlayingWithFire
* ShoutOut - During the ''QB Rebellion'' TV series in episode 9, [[spoiler:during the battle against Annelotte and Izumi, Belphe does something similar to [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII M.Bison's Psycho Crusher]], this could be a [[HilariousInHindsight hilarious]] CastingGag, if you know that [[Creator/MitsuoIwata Belphe's VA]] voiced ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII Sean Matsuda!]]]]''
** Also [[spoiler:Belphe's OneWingedAngel form when fighting against Annelotte is a very ironic ShoutOut towards ''Manga/{{Akira}}'' if you take into account his voice actor also voiced '''[[TheHero Kaneda]]''' in [[Manga/{{Akira}} that movie. Belphe as a whole also counts as a shout out towards the famous killer teddy bears scene in that film.]]]]
----
!!Dogura
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dogra_7289.jpg
->'''Voiced by:''' Binbin Takaoka (Japanese), MikePollock (English)
A goblin who is Branwen's master and one the Swamp Witch's minions, as well being the only male one.
----
* AscendedExtra: From being a quasi-comical character who enjoys torturing Branwen, to being a quite competent military leader in the ''Vanquished Queens'' [=OVAs=].
* CastingGag: English dub only: His voice actor already has some experience voicing misogynistic bastards, like [[Manga/{{Berserk}} Adon]].
* DirtyOldMan
* {{Expy}}: He's a composite expy of both [[Film/ThePhantomMenace Watto]] and [[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi Jabba The Hutt]], with the personalities of those characters mixed in a single charcater.
* {{Gonk}}: He's a friggin' ''goblin''! You cannot get something more uglier than that.
* FatBastard
* [[spoiler:KarmaHoudini: The only thing he gets from all the crap he did in the ''Vanquished Queens'' first [=OVA=], at best, is [[LiteralAssKicking being bitten in the ass by some wild squirrel]], as Tomoe forgives him and Branwen, and she let both of them them go scot free. This also overlaps with ForegoneConclusion as the whole plot of the [=OVAs=] takes place before the events of the ''Rebellion'' TV series]].
* KnightOfCerebus: In the ''Vanquished Queens'' [=OVA=].
* LackOfEmpathy: Quite possibly the most disgusting villain of the whole franchise, as he enjoy torturing his opponents, and breaking them emotionally with terrible means.
* TheNapoleon: Especially in the ''Vanquished Queens'' first [=OVA=], when he's the smallest member of the goblin tribe, but he's the one in charge.
* NightmareFetishist: In his own words, torturing his prisoners, especially if they are beautiful women, excites him.
* TheOneGuy: He's the only male between the Swamp Witch's minions.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: For the [[ImprobablyFemaleCast standards of the franchise]], the way how he treats women invokes this trope.
* ShockAndAwe: He force Branwen to fight by using electricity on her, and this is one of his favorites torture methods.
* TortureTechnician: This little guy could give ''[[Franchise/MetalGear Revolver Ocelot]]'' a run for his money in the torture department, especially in the ''Vanquished Queens'' [=OVA=].
* UnsexySadist
* WouldHitAGirl: And he will do.. ''many times''
----
!!Fiotiel Shalaklard
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fioqb_2155.jpg
A effeminate male boy who travels along Leina in the ''Queen's Blade: Sword of The Unicorn'' novelizations, and the owner of the titular "Sword of The Unicorn".
----
* AmnesiacHero: He doesn't remember much about his past. It's later revealed [[spoiler:he's the incarnation of the Great Unicorn, the King of the Sacred Beasts of Heaven]].
* CanonForeigner
* DudeLooksLikeALady: See that cute girl pictured above? She's a ''guy''.
* {{Expy}}: Judging by his background, of [[SaintSeiya Andromeda Shun]], including both being effeminate, having IntimateHealing skills and [[spoiler:being a LivingMacGuffin, in Fio's case, of the Great Unicorn, just like Shun is the one for Hades.]]
* InSeriesNickname: Fio
* TheOneGuy: He's the only relevant male character in the novel, but as an insteresting quirk, he's the only male who [[spoiler:has kissed Leina, something who doesn't happens in the regular continuity]].
----
!!Anarista
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/anarista_9030.jpg
->''The Scorpion of Amara''
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NaomiShindo (Drama CD)
A girl from the Kingdom of Sadler (who is the rival kingdom from Amara, the one who Menace hails from) who becomes Menace personal martial arts trainer (and possibly her lover), but she was [[TheMole a mole from her kingdom]] and ended off betraying her and destroying Amara (and killing Menace and her family). She only appears in Menace's [[AllThereInTheManual backstory]] from the gamebooks.
----
* CanonForeigner: Beside a brief, voiceless, cameo in the TV series in Menace's flashbacks, she only appears in ''Queen's Blade Bitoshi Retsuden: Tome of the Ancient Princess'' backstory about Menace.
* {{Expy}}: Backstory-wise, of Ougai (Souther's sensei) from ''FistOfTheNorthStar''.
* FalseFriend: She pretended to care about Menace, just to be close to her and later turning Menace and her country into mince meat.
* KarmaHoudini: She managed to destroy Amara and to kill Menace and her family, and it seems she never got the punishment she deserved.
* MeaningfulName: Her name is a [[SpellMyNameWithAnS deformation]] of the Spanish word ''Analista'' (Analyst). Since her job is being TheMole for her kingdom, it's quite fitting.
* TheMole
* TrojanHorse: The way how she brings Sadler's army to Amara using a gift box, symbolizing their surrender towards Amara.
** ISurrenderSuckers
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: She used ProfessionalWrestling moves, who is a very odd choice of fighting style, since her student Menace's fighting style resemble [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Souther's Nanto Ho'ou-ken]] instead.
----
!!The Head Archangel
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TakakoHonda (Japanese), Allison Cohen (English)
The main leader of the angelic society in the Heaven, Nanael and Hachiel's boss and the organizer of the Queen's Blade tournament.
----
* BigGood: Or the closest thing to be one in the QB universe.
* CanonForeigner: She only appears in the animated adaptation.
* DemotedToExtra: She only provides narration at the beginning and in the end of the ''Rebellion's'' animated adaptation, but she doesn't appear anymore.
* NarratorAllAlong: Heavily implied, since the narrator [[Creator/TakakoHonda shares the same voice actress with her]].
* NoNameGiven
----
!!Taira
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/YoshitsuguMatsuoka (Japanese), Tony A. Campbell (English)
A male human boy who works for Huit as a journalist of sorts. And that's the only thing we know about him.
----
* CanonForeigner: He only appears in the animated adaptation of ''Rebellion'', as Huit didn't have any friends besides Annelotte in the Illustraded Stories and other continuities.
* {{Expy}}: Of both [[Anime/KikisDeliveryService Tombo]] and JimmyOlsen
* FlatCharacter: He's even more flatter than Hachiel, Rana, Owen and even ''Count Vance'', for that matter.
* {{Megane}}
* SatelliteCharacter
----
!!Mime and Meena
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wraithmaids_4805.jpg
A duo of Wraith maids [[spoiler:working under both Werbellia The Swamp Witch and Airi's orders]] who appears retroactively in the ''Rebellion'' continuity (both animated and gamebook respectively), albeit their roles in each continuty differs from each other.
----
* CatGirl: Mime, and a [[CatsAreMean very mean one]].
* InformedAbility: According with the Swamp Witch's gamebook, Mime is able to [[GrandTheftMe control the body of any living being and manipulate it for her own gain]], but that ability is never used anywhere.
** InformedFlaw: Also, according with the Swamp Witch's gamebook, Meena is very ambitious and she wants to rule the world of the living along her master as her consul, since she came from a noble family of wraiths, but this point is never explored in any adaptation
* {{Meganekko}}: Meena.
* {{Meido}}: Both of them.
* LackOfEmpathy: Unlike Airi,[[spoiler:her boss along with Werbellia]], they're both unrepentely evil to the core, and the animated version raised their evilness UpToEleven.
* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: In the non-canon alternative ending of the third ''Vanquished Queens'' [=OVAs=], it's heavily implied they raped [[spoiler:Leina together with her master, Werbellia]].
* [[RememberTheNewGuy Remember The New Maids]]: One of the most egregious examples from the series, and also overlaps with RetCon: [[spoiler:In the original final battle depicted in the Illustrated Stories, Werbellia fights against Aldra and Annelotte without any help from anyone, but the recently published gamebook of her retcon some details from that battle. so Werbellia fight against her daughters along Airi, Mime and Meena, not to mention they are ''never mentioned'' anywhere]].
* SatelliteCharacter: Their job is basically helping the Swamp Witch in her plans, albeit they both have a {{Backstory}} in her master's gamebook, not that really matters in their personalization anyways.
