[[folder:Haru Glory]]
[[caption-width-right:225: Rave-A-Lution!]]

The hero. Haru Glory came from a small island that's referred to as incredibly far out in the sticks and lacks knowledge of most any world history or geographical features. He's incredibly strong willed and noted for having a good heart. He was chosen to be the Rave Master who was to eliminate the Dark Bring.

-->Voiced by: Creator/TomokazuSeki (JP), Creator/YuriLowenthal (EN)
* AccidentalPervert: He ends up in this kind of situations with Elie several times. He has accidentally looked up her skirt while he's crawling under a table (this was their first meeting in the manga), groped her and seen her naked ''twice''.
* AllLovingHero: He's merciful, compassionate and is very naive.
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: Stab Elie or let her destroy the world? [[TakeAThirdOption Hm]]...
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:In the finale, the Star Memory revives Haru one year after his HeroicSacrifice.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: As the Oracion Seis found out.
* BigBrotherInstinct: {{Inverted}} since he's the younger brother. Branch suffers ''a lot'' for harming Haru's sister.
%%* {{Bishounen}}: To a degree.
* BoisterousBruiser: Despite being a TechnicalPacifist he often yells a lot in battle.
* BullyHunter: Started when he punished Branch for abusing Cattleya.
* CallingYourAttacks: He always blurts out any change to his sword.
* CannotSpitItOut: He doesn't get to confess to Elie for ''thirty four'' volumes (she isn't in the first). [[spoiler: When he does confess, it's a DyingDeclarationOfLove]].
* TheChosenOne: He was chosen to be the Rave Master who will save the world.
* CoveredInScars: After his fight with Doryu, some of the scars from the battle remain on his body for the rest of the series.
* CovertPervert: He supports the idea of Elie wearing a very exposing dancing outfit.
* CrazyJealousGuy: Downplayed, but he has admitted that one of the reasons he hates Lucia is because he kissed Elie right in front of him.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: A large chunk of the manga's humor comes from stupid things that leave his mouth, but he's still the strongest character among the Rave Warriors.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Somewhat.
* DeclarationOfProtection: He declares that protecting Elie is his main motivation.
* {{Determinator}}: It doesn't matter how much he gets beat up or how outclassed he is, he never quits.
* DubNameChange: Not Haru himself, but rather the Ten Commandments, which becomes the Ten Powers.
* DyingDeclarationOfLove: [[spoiler:He confesses his love to Elie right before she destroys the Endless with him inside. He comes BackFromTheDead one year later]].
* TheFettered: He has set morals that prevent him from going extreme against evil. To cite one specific example, he's very much opposed to needless killing.
* TheHero: He is the central good guy working against Demon Card's evil activities.
* HeroicSacrifice: In the final battle, [[spoiler:Haru gets stuck inside Endless and asks Elie to destroy it with him inside. He gets better]].
* HiddenDepths: Has proven smarter than he looks when facing a villain's MotiveRant. In the face of Let's BloodKnight desires and talk of honor, he criticizes how meaningless honor is when fighting evil. When he hears Lucia's reasons for hating the world, he rightly points out that the world doesn't exist just for him and his suffering doesn't mean others don't have the right to live.
* HotBlooded: [[LikeFatherLikeSon Runs in the family]].
* HowDoIShotWeb: He doesn't know how to use the Ten Commandments at first but he learns fast. One of the usual justifications for him learning the Ten Commandments' other forms is that the Rave of knowledge grants him innate wisdom just at the exact moment it's needed.
* IdealHero: Caring, compassionate, idealistic and always ready to fight for what's right.
* IdiotHero: It's not too extreme, but he has some pretty dumb moments.
* InstantExpert: Justified by the Rave of Wisdom.
* JusticeWillPrevail: He often preaches about peace and harmony for all.
* LeeroyJenkins: LikeFatherLikeSon, as both he and his dad often rush into things blindly.
* LegacyCharacter: The second one to inherit the title of Rave Master in the story.
* LuckySeven: Born on July 7. [[spoiler: The same date as Lucia]].
%%* MadeOfIron
* MagneticHero: Almost no story arc passes without him acquiring one new team member, starting with Plue, then Griff, Elie, Musica, Shuda, Ruby, Sieg Hart, Evermary, Lazenby, and eventually [[spoiler:Julius]] right before the final battle.
%%* ManlyTears: Often.
* MorphWeapon: The Ten Commandments, a sword with ten different forms.
* MrFanservice: He's often shirtless or exposing his chest.
* MySisterIsOffLimits: It doesn't really stop Shuda.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: He explicitly has the power to learn a new form for his sword whenever he's in a sticky spot. It comes from the Rave of knowledge.
* NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow: Lampshaded a little.
* OneManArmy: A stand-alone example would be when he takes on 10,000 demons all by himself.
* PurpleEyes: Grayish purple.
* RefusalOfTheCall: Because his sister forbade it.
* RoyalBlood: [[spoiler:His grandfather was the last king of Symphonia]].
* SecondLove: To Elie. [[spoiler:Her first love was Shiba]].
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: In regards to Elie.
* ShonenHair: He has spiky, messy hair, as befits a traditional Shonen protagonist.
* StarCrossedLovers: [[NobodyThinksItWillWork Everyone]] says the relationship between him and Elie is doomed. [[spoiler:Thankfully, this is averted at the end]].
* StockShonenHero: Haru is energetic, naive and simpleminded sometimes to the point of stupidity, but still a determined, kind and compassionate guy with a strong sense of justice. He gathers many friends and allies throughout the story, some of which started as his enemies. He's very strong, but his true power comes from his desire to protect his friends and Elie.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Looks nearly identical to his dad.
%%* TechnicalPacifist:
* ThemeNaming: Hiro Mashima's lead always has a season based name. His means "spring."
* ThouShaltNotKill: Though demons and Demon Lords don't count.
* TookALevelInBadass: Although it cannot be denied that Haru was already a badass in the series' beginning, it's when he believes that his dad is the one who leads Demon Card that he takes a whole new level of badass since he beats King's entire army ''single-handedly''.
* TwiceShy: With Elie.
* UnresolvedSexualTension: With Elie.
* UnstoppableRage:
** When he uses Sacrifar and when Lucia [[spoiler: ''almost'' kills Shuda]].
** [[spoiler: How can one forget how he went apeshit on the Oracion Seis after they [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beat his friends so gruesomely]]?]]
* WideEyedIdealist: Believes in the inner good of everyone, even when they don't listen to reason.
* WillTheyOrWontThey: With Elie. [[spoiler: TheyDo in the finale]].

[[caption-width-right:225: Even The Author Doesn't Know What He Is]]

Rave's bearer. Plue is a dog(?) with an unknown gender and age who travels with either the wielder of Etherion or the Rave (or both) and helps guide them. He doesn't do much as far as guiding them, but he does occasionally help either Haru or Elie when they're in a tight spot. He came dangerously close to being renamed Shabutaro by Haru and Cattleya.

The main female. Elie is a cheerful amnesiac girl who's just a little off and ''really'' likes bugs. She and Haru met in a racing track (a casino, in the anime) where she quickly fell for him because of his kind heart. She follows him around and is revealed to possess the ultimate magic, known as Etherion. She also bears a strong resemblance to Resha Valentine, who passed away fifty years ago, to everyone's continuous confusion.

-->Voiced by: Creator/AyakoKawasumi (JP), Creator/MichelleRuff (EN)

* AmnesiacHero: [[spoiler:Becomes one ''twice'']].
* AmnesiaDanger: Had she retained her memories she could have wiped every villain from existence rather than been kidnapped by each and every one (save King).

%%* DangerouslyShortSkirt
* {{Deuteragonist}}: Although her forgotten memories make up a huge bulk of the story's past, it's ultimately Haru who keeps the story going in the present.
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: In response to Lucia's AndNowYouMustMarryMe in the finale, [[spoiler: and her powers are sealed by an AntiMagic bracelet, she tries shooting him the face. Even though she sees she can't hurt him, she still defies him and spits in his face, knowing fully well how easily he could kill her.]]
* DualTonfas: With built-in guns.
* DudeMagnet: Haru, [[spoiler:Shiba back when she was Resha]] and many other males are instantly drawn to her. Unfortunately, it also gets negative attention. To clarify, Lucia [[spoiler: when he becomes the ruler of the original world]] wants her to be his bride and Ogre wants her to be his plaything.
* ExtraordinarilyEmpoweredGirl
* FearOfThunder: It's Sieg's fault.

* MagicStaff: Gets one in the Blue Guardians arc, to which she uses it to harness her true power.
* MeaningfulName: ELIE 3173. It's initially thought to be a test subject mark (humorously, the person who thinks this has a name that flips to make a number too) [[spoiler: but is actually the coordinates for her empty grave]].
* MsFanservice: As if her short skirt, long legs, and tank top revealing her full arms and most of her stomach that she wears as her casual outfit weren't enough, Episode 19 has her flat out dressing in a bikini. Lessened once Belinka, Celia and Julia came along and took some of the load off her.
* OlderThanSheLooks: Whether she counts as around 17 or around [[spoiler: 70]] is up to you.
%%* PluckyGirl
* {{Protectorate}}: To Haru.

%%* {{Shorttank}}

* StarCrossedLovers: [[NobodyThinksItWillWork Everyone]] says the relationship between her and Haru is doomed. [[spoiler:Averted at the end]].

* TriggerHappy: [[CharacterizationMarchesOn At least in the beginning,]] she usually takes out her tonfas when she gets angry.
* TwiceShy: With Haru.
* UnresolvedSexualTension: With Haru.
* WillTheyOrWontThey: With Haru. [[spoiler: TheyDo in the finale]].
* YouAreNumberSix: Sieg claims she is an experiment in an attempt to bring back Resha's Etherion and the tattoo in her arm doesn't mean Elie, but Test Subject 3173. [[spoiler:However, turns out Sieg was wrong]].
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: [[spoiler:Her home country Symphonia no longer exists]].

[[caption-width-right:176: We don't know what he is either, but at least he know he has a family]]

A strange blue creature originally recruited by Elie to help her and Haru reach the mountain they suspect a Rave stone to be at. He quickly becomes a member of the main cast, and is supposed to be very skilled at map making. His hobby is peeping on Elie. [[TheScrappy Every other character is better than him]].

-->Voiced by: Katsuya Shiga (JP), Creator/TomKenny (EN)
* TheLoad: Invaluable as he is as a cartographer and navigator, he is completely useless in a fight.
* LovableSexManiac: Or the not so lovable one.
* NonHumanSidekick: Like Plue, we never learn what kind of creature he is.
* NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow: Being sliced in two does normally kill one. What kind of bizarre natural selection gives someone the ability to become two people after being sliced in two? What kind of bizarre natural selection makes ''anything'' like Griff, for that matter.
* ThePeepingTom: Downplayed in the dub, where he's more obsessed with Master Plue.

[[folder:Hamrio Musica]]
[[caption-width-right:225: Silver Claimer and Chick Magnet]]

A silver claimer (someone who can manipulate silver) and former gang leader who teams up with Haru after reuniting with his grandfather. He a close friend of Haru's and one of the more capable fighters in the crew, wielding a spear. He eventually strikes up a relation with one of the Demon Card generals, but it didn't work out.

* ExtraOreDinary: He can change the shape of silver (and later, any metal) at will.
* HeartbrokenBadass: After [[spoiler:Reina dies]].
* ICallItVera: [[spoiler:After Reina dies, some of her silver merges with his, and he occasionally refers to his spear by her name]].
* ImpossibleThief: He somehow steals Nagisa's panties while she's still wearing them and she doesn't even notice it for a while.
* TheLancer: To Haru, until Let [[spoiler:and Shuda]] reduced him to the fourth wheel. Regains the role near the end as [[spoiler:he forges for Haru the final form of his Ten Commandments, and later helps him on his way to the final battle]].

[[folder:Let Dahaka]]
[[caption-width-right:225:Badass Dragon Dude]]

Originally he was only interested in a challenging fight, and working for King as part of his QuirkyMiniBossSquad in order to find them. Let goes over to Haru's side after being awed by Haru's pure heart and desire to protect the whole world.

-->Voiced by: Takehiro Murozono (JP), Doug Stone (EN)
* AdaptationDyeJob: In the manga and ''Manga/FairyTail'' crossover his hair is white. In the anime it's blond, so that he could pass as Super Saiyan Goku.
* AnimeHair: [[Manga/DragonBall Super Saiyan 3]] style no less, until he became human. Even after he became human, his hair still looks like a Super Saiyan's one.
* BattleCouple: With Julia.
* BishonenLine: A heroic example, undergoing a ritual to banish his reptilian nature to achieve greater strength. [[spoiler: This is later inverted in the finale as he becomes more draconic till he becomes a full dragon to defeat his enemy]].
* BloodKnight: Initially as a member of King's QuirkyMiniBossSquad. Downplayed when he became a TechnicalPacifist like the rest of the group, but still has shades of it.
* BreathWeapon: He can breathe fire.
* ChastityCouple: Let and Julia look and act like they're VitriolicBestBuds most of the time (or Julia acts this way, and Let acts like the team grandpa). While a relationship is there if you know to look for it, you only know to look because each has a single occasion where they openly say there's something between them.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Julia.
* TheComicallySerious: Let is TheStoic and suffers from HonorBeforeReason at times. So of course his girlfriend is a hard drinking party girl.
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: Several suicide attacks. He manages to use three. In a story with lots of death, he's good at slipping around it.
* DraconicHumanoid: At least initially. All members of the Dragon Race go through a phase where they spend some time in this state, before either conquering or succumbing to their inner dragon. Let conquers his and becomes more human-like in appearance afterward. His former flame, Julia, succumbed, and ended up a full-fledged dragon. [[spoiler:At least until he cures her]].
* ElementalBaggage: Fire-breathing.
* HeelFaceTurn: Introduced as part of King's QuirkyMiniBossSquad.
* InsistentTerminology: He's ''dragon race'', not an alligator, and definitely not a human.
* GoodOldFisticuffs: Even working for King, he refuses to use a Dark Bring and prefers hand-to-hand combat, though he's not above breathing fire on occasion.
* LimitedWardrobe: Most of the cast is better about it.
* MeaningfulName: His name is based off of Ma'''let''', which Hiro Mashima chose to describe his fighting style.
* NobleDemon: In the beginning, he claims he's only traveling with Haru and co so he can study their weaknesses for the next time they fight. He grows out of this pretty quick though.
* OneWingedAngel: A heroic one in which he crosses the BishonenLine into the form he remains in the rest of the series. [[spoiler: [[http://www.mangahere.com/manga/rave_master/v34/c281/13.html He temporarily becomes a huge dragon in the finale]].]]
* OppositesAttract: With Julia.
* PunchClockVillain: He's not nearly as kill happy as most of the Demon Card, only interested in fights prior his HeelFaceTurn.
* RedemptionPromotion: While he was by no means weak in his debut, after his HeelFaceTurn, he manages to win a fight against Jegan, whom was stronger than him for most of his life [[note]]Jegan also had a powerful Dark Bring as one of the Oracion Seis[[/note]] and would have won his fight with Hardner if not for Hardner's HealingFactor [[spoiler: and he still managed to deal enough damage to help Haru win.]]
* RedOniBlueOni:
** Two ways, the more pragmatic and level headed to Haru's brash impulsiveness and Musica's more frivolous behavior.
** Even to his own girlfriend, who's more hot-tempered than he is.
* ScarsAreForever: From Jegan's attack, he initially had it covered under a headband prior his crossing the BishonenLine.
* SssnakeTalk: In the dub, initially prior his BishonenLine, when he talks normally.
%%* TheStoic: For a little while.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: With Jegan. However, Jegan denies that they were friends in the first place.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Manga only. Before his HeelFaceTurn. [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/27477_100001031701580_4008_n_4485.jpg Originally he was this.]]

[[caption-width-right:225: Rich Penguin(???) Sorcerer]]

A penguin(?) who inherited a large sum of money and giant floating casino from his late father. He's dismayed to learn he's been funding a criminal origination and ends up going to Haru for protection when he refuses to continue giving Doryu money. He becomes their first ''safe'' magic user after Sieg reveals he has the gift, but he's generally considered useless by the cast.

-->Voiced by: Yukiji (JP), Shiori Izawa (JP - Fairy Tail x RAVE OVA), Bob Glouberman (EN)
* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: He's pink.
* BadLiar: The heroic version of BondVillainStupidity.
%%* CannotKeepASecret
%%* CollectorOfTheStrange
* TheDitz: Yet somehow he masters magic.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: He becomes ecstatic when Sieg Hart tells him he has the potential to be a mage. He doesn't disappoint.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: A bell [[spoiler:that can turn into a sword. It originally belonged to Dalmatian, one of the Four Knights of the Blue Sky]].
* TheMillstone: At times due to his inability to lie and his annoying tendency to blurt out whatever he's thinking, alerting the bad guys.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: When he realizes that the people he thought were his best friends, like Doryu, were criminals who were using him to fund their operations.
* NonHumanSidekick: He doesn't look like a penguin, like a pig-bird at least.
* RichInDollarsPoorInSense: He's not good at keeping track of his money.
* SecretKeeper: Haru trusts him enough to [[spoiler: tell him who the next Rave Master will be after Haru dies]]. Amazingly, he keeps ''this'' secret.
* TalkingAnimal: A penguin?
* TookALevelInBadass: Once he learns magic.
* VerbalTic: "Poyo!" And it's contagious. When the gang first encounters it several try to imitate it. At one point, even TheComicallySerious Sieg uses it.
%%* WideEyedIdealist

[[caption-width-right:272: Badass Dragon Lady]]

Let's polar-opposite girlfriend. She spent a good deal of time stuck as a dragon under Jegan's control, but once she changes back she joins Haru's team. She's the most violent member of the team, especially when it comes to her boyfriend, but she also takes on a somewhat motherly role. She also really wants Haru and Elie to hook up.

-->Voiced by: Kyoko Namekawa (JP - Fairy Tail x RAVE OVA)
* ActionGirl: She beats the crap out of people a lot more than her boyfriend. And [[http://www.citymanga.com/rave/chapter-271/09/ especially her boyfriend.]]
* BattleCouple: With Let.
* BoobsOfSteel: One of the best stacked and perhaps ''the'' toughest female in the series.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler: She spends a long time as a dragon under Jegan's control.]]
* BreathWeapon: Like Let, she can breathe Fire.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: For a long while, she was portrayed as the GirlNextDoor to Let. Cue to the Blue Guardians Arc, where this is changed to more of an ActionGirl with a drinking problem and [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl no problem with her nudity]]. Let [[NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead most likely heavily idealized]] her and her memory. It also helps that we only get brief glimpses of his memories of her.
* ChastityCouple: Let and Julia look and act like they're VitriolicBestBuds most of the time (or Julia acts this way, and Let acts like the team grandpa). While a relationship is there if you know to look for it, you only know to look because each has a single occasion where they openly say there's something between them.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Let.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Played with. Barely any other woman ever comes on to Let, but on the other hand, she knows that Let can get violently jealous and usually warns any man who makes a pass at her.
* CoolBigSis: To the Rave Master team.
* CoolPet: To Jegan till she was restored to human form by Let.
* FullFrontalAssault: When Julia faces off with an especially perverted member of the Six Guard who tries to submit her to DefeatByModesty by using his powers to blow apart her clothing, Julia ''rips off the remains of her own bra'' to prove the point that modesty will not defeat her. She then proceeds to kick his ass with no regard to her nudity.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: She once gets drunk enough to [[http://www.citymanga.com/rave/chapter-271/12/ use wine bottle like a walkie-talkie.]]
* IntimateHealing: [[spoiler:After Let defeats Jegan and Julia returns to her human form with a elixir, Julia saves Let by sharing the elixir with him through a kiss.]]
* KissOfDeath: How she finishes off [[spoiler:Juria]], with a fire breath right down her throat.
* TheLadette: To contrast [[ShrinkingViolet Belnika]] and [[PluckyGirl Elie]]
* MsFanservice: There's no way her first fight wasn't that.
* OppositesAttract: With Let.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Julia doesn't give a damn about others seeing her naked.
* ShipperOnDeck: As stated above, for Haru and Elie.
* TakingYouWithMe: Attempted during one fight against an opponent who could turn himself into acid. When her regular attacks don't work, she resorts to throw herself and him out of the airship they were fighting on and tricks him into liquefying that he evaporates into nothing while she fully intended to fall to her death. Luckily a nearby dragon happened to show up and save her.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Her style is more akin to grappling rather then martial arts that her boyfriend uses.

[[caption-width-right:182: Magic Girl No. 2]]

A sweet, somewhat timid girl who underwent experiments in order to gain Etherion. They failed, but she acquired some powerful magic nonetheless. Her specialty is healing. She was duped into working for Hardner but quickly switches to Haru's side.
* AntiMagic: [[spoiler:Her real ability, aside from the Etherion-like ones she first displayed]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She goes ''ballistic'' on [[spoiler: Juria, one of the Four Demon Kings.]]
* CelibateHeroine: She always spurns Musica's advances, which kind of creep her out. She does take a liking to Haru, though.
* CovertPervert: Despite having many ProperLady traits and being a bit shy in general, she certainly isn't above staring intently at Haru's crotch when he gets naked the evening before the final battle.
%%* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
%%* TheMedic
* ShyBlueHairedGirl: At first she is shy but becomes assertive later on.
* SilkHidingSteel: A NiceGirl but don't forget her magic.
* PowerAtAPrice: Her magic was obtained through rigorous training that they heavily imply was incredibly painful, but her magic is pretty sweet.
%%* WhiteMagicianGirl
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Except by the time she arrives blue hair is more common than brown.

* BoisterousBruiser: In his youth, in fact his recklessness when using the Ten Commandants' 9th form [[spoiler: which temporarily changes Haru into a berserker]] is the reason why Haru can't ever properly use it [[TechnicalPacifist being the kind of person he is]].

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Leads the Demon Card and is by far the strongest member at the start of the series. He easily defeats Gale without even using any of his Dark Bring, and is only beaten by Haru when blindsided after Plue uses the Rave of Combat to block an attack.

* InstantExpert: Has less time with the Decalogue sword than his father did but by the time he faces Haru, he's learned to use nine of its ten forms.
* LaserGuidedTykebomb: Courtesy of the Sinclaire stone.
* LateArrivalSpoiler: One of the biggest plot twists regarding Lucia is that he isn't dead. The reader is even treated to his StartOfDarkness several volumes before learning his character exists as more than a one off in somebody else's tragic backstory.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: Very much, except a little more paranoid and more of a {{Jerkass}}.
* MurderTheHypotenuse: One of the reasons he tries to kill Haru.
* OneManArmy: After breaking out of prison he killed an entire army single handedly, and then traveled to meet Haru by coercing an infamous crime syndicate into letting him use their airship. This was before he got the Decalogue sword.

* RoomFullOfCrazy: Sieg discovers that Lucia's [[http://www.mangahere.com/manga/rave_master/v10/c079/12.html room]] was very much this.

* SinsOfOurFathers: When he was six years old, Lucia was thrown in a maximum security prison as a precaution since his father was the leader of Demon Card. He also believes that his bloodline is cursed because of his ancestor's sin of [[spoiler:creating an AlternateTimeline]].
* StartOfDarkness: The loss of his family and being locked up for ten years for no reason other than being King's son.
* SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum: [[spoiler:What his goal basically amounts to]].
* ThenLetMeBeEvil: Coming from a family with a history of villainy, the Empire decided to get it over with and preemptively arrest Lucia. When he was six. That he went to prison because he was expected to become a villain is, ultimately, his motive for becoming a villain.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: The first flashback of him as a kid even has him hiding from a stranger behind his mom.
* VillainousBreakdown: Has a minor one when fighting Haru for a second one as the latter proved stronger then he was and [[SympathyForTheDevil tried to feel sorry for him]], making this also a case of DontYouDarePityMe.
** [[spoiler: Then their last fight has him basically blurting out the reasons for wanting the world to die!]]
* VillainousCrush: On Elie.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: He was thrown into jail for ten years just for being King's son, however, Lucia in the present, is far less sympathetic

The third Demon Card general introduced. Jegan is the serious, strong silent type, with a [[{{BFS}} sword larger than Haru's]]. [[TwoGuysAndAGirl He was a childhood friend of Julia and Let's]], but went just a little crazy when the LoveTriangle didn't work in his favor.

The fifth Demon Card general, who acts as temporary leader in the lull between King an Lucia's rule. He's also Demon Card's primary sorcerer. He's eventually revealed to be from the same origins as Sieg with the same mission, but isn't quite as willing to convert to the light.

* YouHaveFailedMe: [[spoiler:Haja has Jegan offed for this]].


The sixth, and vain, Demon Card general. Julius has serious moments once in a blue moon, and usually only because the enemy dared to strike him in the face. In spite of his goofy attitude, he's a powerful fighter, and the other generals tolerate his behavior. He seems to be the only general who acknowledges Shuda as an equal.

-->Voiced by: Akira Sasanuma (JP), Creator/JeffNimoy (EN)
* AffablyEvil: Easily one of the nicer people in Demon Card unless you hurt his face, in which case he gets mad only to return to his usual narcissistic nature.

%%* BeautyMark
* BerserkButton: Hitting his face.
* {{Bishonen}}: [[BerserkButton If you hurt his face, you'll get it.]]

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadAss: On the rare occasions where he's serious.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: [[spoiler:Defeat in a dance contest, mind you]].
%%* TheFightingNarcissist
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Due to Elie being a better dancer]].

* MinorInjuryOverreaction: To any damage to his face.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: Starting with the Blue Gaurdians arc, he's an exhibitionist.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The manga calls him Iulius. Everyone else swears it's Julius.

[[folder:Deep Snow]]

One of the four generals for TheEmpire, who defects to Demon Card after Lucia takes over. He's later revealed to be King's adopted son, who was sent away to be "saved from the path of darkness". He has no attatchment to Lucia, but serves Demon Card in order to try to satisfy King.

* AdaptationDyeJob: His hair is light brown in the anime.
* AntiVillain: He only wants to do his father proud.
* BodyHorror: He's able to bend literally anything that moves in any manner he chooses, ''including people''!
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: [[spoiler:His forbidden Dark Bring is able to awaken the hidden power of humans, enough to beat the crap of Shuda.]]
* ImprobableAge: Explained away by him aging 2.5 times faster than a normal person, but he was a baby when Emilia and Sakura died. In other words, he's only been alive about ten years during the events of the story. And even if you count him as 25, he's still a 25 year old who was one of the Empire's top generals, despite having no connections to propel him to that point and, at most, eight years to climb the social ladder. (Or three, if you don't want to count the time it would take him to reach a reasonable age to enlist.)

* SixthRanger: Takes Shuda's place among the six, [[spoiler:only to be beaten by him seven volumes later]].
%%* TheStoic: Most of the time.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Somehow King forgot to tell Deep Snow he ''did'' see him as a son.
%%* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

* DarkAndTroubledPast: Not as bad as King's but a dark showing on FantasticRacism.

* TheStoic: The only one that's not not giving a smug grin or a SlasherSmile most of the time.

* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: He has red skin.

* TheBrute: He is easily the least intelligent of the major villains of the series, yet [[spoiler:[[InformedAbility somehow was smart enough to frame Reina's father for his kidnapping and utilize the Silver Ray]]]].
* DumbMuscle: Doryu is obviously a better strategist and has a more thought-out plan than the Oni captain will ever will.
* ExtraOreDinary: A gold claimer to Musica and Reina's silver claimers.
* HairTriggerTemper: If his plans fail.
%%* HornedHumanoid
* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: Poor Elie. He also tries this on Reina before Musica saves her.

* LargeAndInCharge: To the Oni.
* TheLawOfDiminishingDefensiveEffort: Because his Dark Bring makes physical attacks phase through him, [[spoiler: but not energy or spiritual attacks, like Silver Bond]].
* {{Lust}}: His main goal is too have all the pretty girls in the world.
* MightyGlacier: Due to his Dark Bring he doesn't need to dodge. [[spoiler: Comes back to bite him at the height of his battle against Musica and Renia when they use Silver Bond on him.

And finally, after he's defeated [[spoiler: it's revealed that Nagisa, the girl he tortured just for fun, was in fact his daughter who he thought died in the plane crash that killed his pregnant wife]].

Megido, Juria, Uta, and Ashura (with Doryu [[AllThereInTheManual still living according to the author, but somehow forgot to include]]) They rule the Mythical Realm where all the [[OurMonstersAreDifferent sentinoids]] come from with an iron fist. Beryl convinces them to submit themselves to Lucia. They become his QuirkyMinibossSquad during the final battle.
* AchillesHeel: [[spoiler: Ashura apparently forgot that being a demon filled with Dark Bring means you're a sitting duck for the Ten Powers (and Plue)]].
* AllYourPowersCombined: [[spoiler:Ashura controls every Dark Bring, in addition to Final Story which initially allowed him to destroy any Dark Bring used against him before he gave it to Lucia]].
* AxCrazy: Ashura and Megido, especially Ashura.

* TheDragon: [[spoiler:Once Lucia scraps all his other minions]], Megido especially.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:Ashura fights Haru, with the former dominating the fight after his OneWingedAngel due to his Dark Bring nature. Unfortunately, it's for those same reasons he ultimately is destroyed since the latter has the Ten Powers, which is his AchillesHeel]].
* HornedHumanoid: Both Ashura and Uta, but with the former, it's a major plot point [[spoiler: since growing a second set actually increases his powers]].
* AnIcePerson: Juria.
* KillerRabbit: Ashura, despite his small size, was able to defeat Musica with ease.
** [[spoiler: Subverted, he's actually much bigger than in his true form]].
* KingOfBeasts: Megido looks like one.
* LiterallyShatteredLives: [[spoiler:How Ashura dies]].
* NoBodyLeftBehind: [[spoiler:Each of the Demon Lords do this as they are defeated, with the exception of Megido, whose body is melted by lava]].
* OhCrap: All of them when the heroes manage to gain the upper hand. [[spoiler: Juria when Belnika attempts to pull a TakingYouWithMe on her, when Nibel uses forbidden magic to age himself and match her power and realizing Julia has found out her weakness. Uta when Let reveals he holds the spirit of the Dragon King in him and proceeds to curbstomp him. Ashura when he suddenly realizes Haru's Sword, the Ten Commandments, was made for destroying Dark Bring ''of which he is made out of''. And Megido when Shuda slashes through his Hellfire and him along with it]].
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:Uta just grows another set of horns, but [[NotSoHarmlessVillain Ashura]] follows this trope more accurately]].
* PlayingWithFire: Megido.
* QuirkyMiniBossSquad: For the final battle. Gave all the heroes a run for their money that left them near-death [[spoiler: due to having to use forbidden magic just to even the odds]] or, at best, severely wounded.
* {{Satan}}: [[spoiler:Ashura's true form invokes this]].
* SquishyWizard: [[spoiler: Juria, who has a healing factor and can recover from most heavy damage done to her. However the group she's fighting against (Julia, Belnika and Nibel) realize while her outsides can take a lot of damage. Her ''insides'' are vulnerable as her skeleton is made of ice. Once the latter two damage her enough to paralyze her, cue Julia coming in for the finishing blow via KissOfDeath]].
* {{Stripperific}}: Juria.
* StupidEvil: [[spoiler:The only way to describe Ashura's decision to fight Haru, despite his entire body consisting of the thing that the latter's weapon was meant to destroy]].
* SuperMode: Juria's hair stands up and is apparently stronger, [[{{DragonBall}} Remind you of anything]] anyone?
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler: Megido attempts this by breaking the ground Shuda and he are fighting on and trying to drop both of them into the lava below. Is thwarted when Haru manages to save Shuda]].
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler:Ashura, whose body was implanted with Dark Bring, forgot that he was fighting Haru, whose sword '''was made to destroy Dark Bring'''!]]
* UndyingLoyalty: They swear loyalty once they see how evil Lucia is, but Megido stands out the most, since he's made the second most appearances next to Doryu.
* WingedHumanoid: [[spoiler:Ashura in his true form]].

L'Tiangle, Rionette, Racas and Ron Glace. Five warriors from other dimensions are brought together by one of King's Dark Brings, the Gate. The guard the Tower of Din as well as being non-humans of unparalleled strength. One, Let, later does a HeelFaceTurn and becomes one of the good guys.

->L'Tiangle is voiced by: Katsuaki Arima (JP), Creator/JeffNimoy (EN)
->Rionette is voiced by: Kousuke Okano (JP), Patricia Lentz (EN)
->Racas is voiced by: Hitoshi Bifu (JP) Armando Valdes Kennedy (EN)
->Ron Glace is voiced by: Souichirou Tanaka (JP) JoeOchman (EN)
* AccentAdaptation: Racas has a Spanish accent, which is very fitting considering his character.
* AllThereInTheManual: Most of their backgrounds are revealed in the back pages of the book.
* AnimatedArmor: Ron is apparently this, as is L'Tiangle.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Racas.
* CastingAShadow: Rionette.
* CreepyMonotone: Rionette and L'Tiangle.
* CrossDressingVoice: Rionnete in the English dub.
* HairTriggerTemper: Ron.
* InformedAbility: These five are said to have powers greater than a 1000 [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demonoids]], yet they go down much quicker than most of the later QuirkyMiniBossSquad of the series.
** Additional points for Rionette for being described as the most cruel of the five, when all we saw as [[TheStoic coldness]] and strange liking to weird things.
* LiterallyShatteredLives: [[spoiler:How L'Tiangle dies]].
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: These five are much more detailed in design, especially compared to the later [[QuirkyMiniBossSquad guardians]] of the major antagonists who would later appear in the story; especially L'Tiangle, who is noted to be the hardest character to draw in the whole series.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: Like Berial's case, it's not made clear if they are of a separate race from the Demon Lords' race; but it's clear that each of the members come from different types of Demonoid, with Ron and L'Tiangle being AnimatedArmor, Rionette being a tall blue creature with a long neck, skinny arms, and a tail coming out of its back and Racas being a yellow, segmented pointy eared humanoid.
* QuirkyMiniBossSquad: The most notable of the series, with Racas and Rionette being the oddest of the group.
* TheStoic: All of them appearance wise, only that Ron has a huge HairTriggerTemper and Racas is the BunnyEarsLawyer.
* SunglassesAtNight: Racas.
* ThemeNaming: Adding "Ma" in front of their names gets you Maltiangle (multi-angle), Marionette, Maracas, and Maron glace ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marron_glac%C3%A9 marron glace]], a dessert). Also, Let (mallet).
* UndyingLoyalty: Implied to King.
* VillainousBreakdown: L'Tiangle, once Musica gets a hold of him, immediately panics as he did not expect that he'd make a counterattack.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: With the notable exception of [[BreakoutCharacter Let]], the rest of the guardians are taken out before we learned anything major about them.

!!Other Characters


A minor character who plays the StraightMan to Nakajima in the FlashForward mini-strips "Levin Minds the House". Levin is left by his parents in the care of the strange creature Nakajima. The question of his parentage is supposed to keep people in suspense. He's Haru and Elie's son.
* BabiesEverAfter: [[spoiler: He's Haru and Elie's son]].
* ForgetfulJones: He's prone to amnesia so he can't remember his parents. Nakajima torments him by telling him lies about them. [[spoiler:He got the bad memory from his mother]].
* StraightMan: To Nakajima, poor Levin.

[[caption-width-right:190: We don't know what he is, but there's a lot of them]]

A strange plant person who grows on Haru's house. He's some sort of bizarre insectivorous sunflower, but even though he's a plant he refuses to admit this. In the side-comics, he babysits Levin, mostly via tormenting him.

-->Voiced by: Kosuke Okano

* CloudCuckoolander: His attempts at trying to sound worldly comes as across as this.
%%* KnowNothingKnowItAll

* PlantPerson: A sunflower...thing.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Bugs, and ramen.
* TrulySingleParent: He gives birth to a child, which horrifies poor Levin, which puts the plausibility of Nakajima having two parents into further confusion.
