The founder and leader of the Sket-dan, nicknamed Bossun. When he puts on his goggles he is able to be in full concentration and saves the day. When talking about his special traits, the Sket-dan tends to break the fourth wall, saying how [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall he has nothing unique for a shounen main character]].

->Voiced by: Creator/HiroyukiYoshino

%%* [[spoiler:HappilyAdopted]]
* HateAtFirstSight: His first impression of Tsubaki wasn't exactly the best.

!!Kazuyoshi "Switch" Usui

Switch is the brains and secretary to the Sket-Dan. He is an otaku (no matter how many times he denies it) that has information about EVERYONE in Kaimei High. Switch appears to be the most serious of the group, but his fooling around says otherwise. Switch is tech-savvy to an extreme: his scientific bent puts him at odds with Yuuki Reiko, the devout occultist. Mysteriously, he prefers not to speak, instead communicating via a text-to-speech synthesizer in his laptop. Perhaps there is a hidden side to this eccentric young man...

* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:His little brother died because of a false statement he believed and said to him. He became a [[{{Hikikomori}} shut-in]] not so much after that because of the guilt trip it made him fall into. Bossun was the one who saved him.]]
** [[spoiler:Since ''Switch On'' covers more on his past, there are certain things that he may not be so proud to had done (he whole hidden site incident and the Death Fights he managed to get other former delinquents to get on), especially as a result of the whole guilt trip that he had as a shut-in]].
* GadgeteerGenius: To a degree.

* [[spoiler:ILetGwenStacyDie: He blames himself of Masafumi's death.]]

* NerdsAreSexy
* NonActionGuy: Pretty athletic when the situation calls (especially playing Genesis), but he prefers to stand in the sidelines.

[[folder:Student Council]]
The rivals of the Sket Dan, who uphold school rules and handle administrative duties, like the creation and funding of clubs. Within the Sket Dance world, there is a manga series about them, running in Shounen Jump, and a tie-in game on Vivage City, a cellular phone game company.

!!Soujirou Agata
President of the Student Council and a Third year student. A very charismatic, laid-back individual, who seemingly does nothing as President. He entrusts most responsibilities to the Vice President, Sasuke Tsubaki. His IQ is around 160. Agata's ability to read and understand people makes him a cunning manipulator when necessary; it's also why he has the complete loyalty of Student Council members Sasuke and Daisy. His performance in the Gachinko Vivage Battle's "Pixie Garden" match with Bossun shows that he is a good strategist, who learns quickly, and is adept at lying. Despite his ruthlessness, and professions that he isn't a nice guy, he's against cheating to win - though he has a tendency to forget things he's said. About the only thing he takes seriously is the protection of his little sister Saaya: the thought of her finding a boyfriend puts Agata into paroxysms.

->Voiced by: Creator/TomokazuSeki

* DitzyGenius: He's extremely laidback, and frequently acts without thinking (e.g. making a bet and later forgetting about it). But despite his antics, he's still the top student in the school, and later managed to get a perfect score in his university entrance exam without actually studying.
* [[DotingParent Doting Older Brother]]: He can't even think straight after finding out about his little sister's crush.
* ManipulativeBastard: Sort of when he proposes into it.
* MySisterIsOffLimits: He freaks out at the very notion that Saaya might be romantically involved with a boy, and he's the reason why the "Saaya fanclub" did not exist until he graduates.
* SignatureLaugh: Kakaka!
* StudentCouncilPresident: [[spoiler:Until he stepped down to focus on his college entrance exams.]]

!!Sasuke Tsubaki
The HotBlooded Vice President of the Student Council. Opinion among the student body is that Tsubaki takes his responsibilities ''way'' too seriously, refusing to tolerate even the slightest infractions in the name of making Kaimei a better school. He believes that the Sket-dan is useless and should be abolished, leading to conflicts with Bossun. The two consider each other rivals and his desire to defeat Bossun and the Sket-dan motivate him to do things he wouldn't otherwise do. He is a skilled fighter, and the boxing club at their school wanted him on their team. He also researches his opponents weaknesses and uses them to his advantage.

!!Kikuno "Daisy" Asahina
The Secretary of the Student Council, nicknamed "Daisy-chan." While obedient to Agata in her council duties, she has a vicious tongue and an overstock of FloweryInsults for most others. She has good aim and relentlessly attacks without hesitation. While Daisy seems calm and composed on the outside, she is quick to judge others, sometimes leading to fatal underestimations. She copes with failure poorly and takes solace in cuddling stuffed animals.

She believes money is a means to all ends, from love confessions to winning competitions. Despite this, she considers herself an advocate of proper conduct, and even lectures Tsubaki for his uncivilized actions. Outside of her financial duties, she provides refreshments and first aid supplies to the other Student Council members.

A first year student who [[spoiler:takes over as Treasurer after Minori moves up to Vice-President]].

Normally a stoic and withdrawn girl who refuses to associate with men, Usami's flirtatious alter-ego "Bunny" emerges when a male touches her (and reverts with a touch from a female). Usami is a capable student, but her odd condition makes it difficult for her to connect with people.

Guess why the Sket Dan often lamphades that something is going to be wrong with the chapter when Cherry appears.
* MeaningfulName: His nickname, Cherry, comes from 'cherry boy' a term that technically applies to a ''virgin''.
* VerbalTic: Especially when he is in his pervert mode, gesu! (Also often he likes to say dirty jokes). Or when he is pretty nervous in front of a girl he likes.
