[[folder: '''Main Characters''']]

!! Torako Takino
The core group's resident badass, Torako is the fraternal twin sister of Tomo and a natural mech pilot and a skilled brawler. Though usually laconic and soft-spoken, she can also be very sarcastic at times, usually if she is under stress. She is extremely wealthy, after exploiting her unwanted fame from a sex tape that was accidentally broadcast across Japan and later released on DVD.
* AcePilot: Of the Steamroller variety.
* ActionGirl
* ActionGirlfriend: To Tardboy.
* AmIJustAToyToYou: With Asagi. She's still not quite sure what the real answer is.
* AppropriatedAppellation: She got her nickname, Anemic Damsel from the East, from a porn DVD made from a sex tape accidentally recorded by a video conference system.
* BestHerToBedHer: A mild example, as no combat is involved; just having the nerve to make a move on her without stopping to make sure she wants it or not will usually suffice.
* BiTheWay
* [[BigLittleBrother Big Little Sister]]: Torako is actually the younger of the Takino siblings, having been born four minutes after Tomo. She is also the taller and older-looking twin.
* BruiserWithASoftCenter
* CombatPragmatist
* CurbStompBattle: People threatening her friends and family often find themselves on the receiving end of one of these.
* DeadpanSnarker
* HappinessInSlavery: Torako is happiest when she's letting another person make the decisions for her and generally treat her like a piece of property. She herself admits that she's a little screwed up in the head.
* HeartbrokenBadass: Suffers from this twice, the first time in Season 2 when Asagi breaks up with her on a whim and the second time in Season 3 when she dumps her all over again. (She had just awoken from a coma with no memory of the last four months, and thought they were still together.)
** It certainly didn't help when she learned that Asagi really did care about her and saw her as more than just a sexual plaything, but abandoned her in the middle of a city overrun by zombies anyway.
* InstantExpert: One has to wonder how Torako was able to win so many fights despite having never even ''seen'' the inside of a HumongousMecha before her first battle in one.
* ItsNotRapeIfYouEnjoyedIt: Torako likes not being given a say in the matter.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Upon awakening from her coma, she had no memory of the last four months
** She has since recovered most of her memories, though they're still patchy in spots.
* NeverAselfMadeWoman: An inversion. Torako clearly inherited her piloting skills and all-around badassitude from her mother Tsuruko, while her father Tsuguhiko is a NonActionGuy to the core.
* NotSoStoic
* PerpetualFrowner
* SmokingIsCool
* {{Twincest}}: With Tomo.
* {{Uke}}: She doesn't know how to be anything else.
* TheUnfavorite: She ''thinks'' she is, anyway.
* UnskilledButStrong: Torako possesses a formidable natural talent for piloting mechs but no formal training or discipline whatsoever. This often puts her at a serious disadvantage when facing opponents who ''do'' have the necessary training and experience.
* WellDoneSonGuy: A female version, longing for her mother's approval and acceptance.

!! Tomo Takino
Tomo is loud, hyperactive, obnoxious, and a huge pervert, and it has often been speculated that the only reason some people even try to tolerate her is for the sake of Torako. Still she does care about her friends in her own twisted way, though she may not have the best ways of showing it.
* ACupAngst: She is very self-conscious about her bust size, especially when compared to her more buxom friends.
* AcePilot: Or at least she could be if she wasn't so reckless and impulsive...
* ArtisticLicenseBiology: See InsaneTrollLogic below.
* BiTheWay
* BrilliantButLazy: Unfortunately she's very, ''very'' lazy.
* InsaneTrollLogic: Tomo insists that since she and Torako are twins, that means they're essentially clones, and therefore any sexual contact between them is only masturbation, and not incest. Yeah.
* {{Jerkass}}
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* LovableSexManiac: Though the "lovable" part is open to debate.
* NoodleIncident: Tsuruko implies that Tomo once nearly burned down the house trying to get rid of a wasp nest in the tool shed.
* PetTheDog: Mainly towards Torako and Yomi.
* TooDumbToLive: Tomo seems to carry the IdiotBall around in her pocket a lot of the time.
* {{Twincest}}: With Torako.

!! Steven Kagura
Also known as Rude Titty-chan, Kagura became famous after a beachgoer's video of her saving Osaka from a shark and losing her bikini top in the process went viral and was later released on DVD. Since then she has become a children's role model, amassed considerable monetary wealth, and suffered tremendously before her [[spoiler:death and resurrection]].
* AcePilot
* AppropriatedAppellation: Why would parents let their children take advice from someone called Rude Titty-chan, anyway?
* ArmouredClosetGay: Was dragged, kicking and screaming, out of the closet in Season 2.
* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead]]
* BoisterousBruiser
* BoobsOfSteel
* BookDumb
* BreakTheCutie: In the second and third seasons Kagura was raped by an evil alternate-universe version of Chiyo-chan, had her shoulder dislocated by Yukari, was stabbed by Osaka, got thrown headfirst into the side of a building ''twice,'' was kidnapped, shot, kidnapped ''again,'' was raped by Nyamo (who to add insult to injury was pregnant with her half brother at the time), dumped by the girl she loved, and finally [[spoiler:killed rescuing her friend from an evil porn company from Hell. Her situation has improved since her resurrection however.]]
* TheChewToy: See above.
* CoolBigSis: To Chiyosuke.
* DaddysGirl
* DespairEventHorizon: Despite everything that happened to her Kagura was somehow able to keep bouncing back with a positive attitude, until she was raped by Nyamo and dumped by Sakaki. Whatever hope she had left was then shattered after [[spoiler:her death, and then those shattered pieces were ground into dust and scattered to the wind when she was able to visit her friends as a ghost only to learn that Sakaki still loved her after all, but that she wouldn't be able to see her again for many, many years]]. Fortunately, she soon got better.
* EmbarrassingFirstName: Kagura's parents wanted a foreign name for their daughter, to make their special little girl unique; unfortunately they didn't think to check the name's ''gender.'' Say hello to Steven Kagura, everyone!
* FriendToAllChildren
* GenderBlenderName: See above.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: Kagura apparently owns (and actually occasionally wears) Power Rangers underwear.
* GrandTheftPrototype: She stole her mech out of the hangar of the Big Bad's walking battleship, and later takes it up a notch by deciding to steal the ship itself.
* GroupieBrigade: She and several friends get trapped in a [=McDonald's=] by one of these.
* HonorBeforeReason
* HotBlooded: [[spoiler:After her resurrection]].
* HotForTeacher: Until she was transferred to Yukari's class and met Sakaki, Kagura was crushing hard on Nyamo.
* InSeriesNickname: Kags.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness
* LesbianJock
* MissingMom: Her mother was killed at the start of the ZombieApocalypse. This led to much drama when her father slept with Nyamo and got her pregnant.
* MushroomSamba: Kagura does not react well to Vicodin.
* ThePollyanna: Up until she was raped by her old swim coach and thought her girlfriend had dumped her, anyway. Then the cutie finally broke.
* PluckyGirl
* RunningGag: Her Ringtone changes every time someone calls.
* ScrewDestiny: After [[spoiler:her death and resurrection]] Kagura espouses this view quite adamantly. While she ''is'' fully aware of the existence of an almighty presence watching over them, she refuses its authority and is determined not to let it direct her actions.
* StayingWithFriends: Since she's so wealthy, Kagura has no problems letting her friends live in her house rent-free.
* TransparentCloset: Until she was outed in Season 2, it often seemed like the only people who ''didn't'' catch on that Kagura was gay were the ones she had crushes on.

!! Shinji Ryougi
The Poster Child for [[AscendedExtra Ascension,]] Ryougi started life as a one-shot gag character to insult Tetsuo Matsuoka, and eventually became one of the main cast members. Terrible at piloting mechs, very proficient with a Knife.
* AscendedExtra
* AscendedFanon: When other characters teased Ryougi and implied that he had a crush on Ran, his author decided to go with it. [[ShipSinking Not that it went anywhere in the end]].
* BelligerentSexualTension: With Ai, for much of Season 3.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale
* HeroesWantRedheads
* ImprobablyCoolCar: From Mark
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* KnifeNut
* LoveTriangle: With Ai and Kokoro
* ParentalAbandonment: His father died when he was still young, and his mother ''(In what she admits was the biggest mistake of her life)'' left him behind to fight a war.
* ShipSinking: Two examples. First was his crush on Ran Kakizaki, which both characters' writers quickly realized had no chance of going anywhere. He was then paired up with Ai Tanagawa, followed by a long sequence of WillTheyOrWontThey. Then when they finally did his writer changed his mind ''again,'' and he is now being set up to get with ''Kokoro'' once his ship with Ai is sunk.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Mark
* WatchThePaintJob: Ryougi ''loved'' his Reventon [[spoiler:before it was incinerated.]]

!! Mark Westion
A hilariously rude, comically violent, super-powered alien from outer space (who looks perfectly human). He dresses like a Super-Villain, and at one point, probably was one. The only thing he enjoys more than blowing things up for no reason is cracking jokes at others' expense.
* AntiHero: Of the NominalHero type.
* CaptainCrash: If he's behind the wheel, you're going to crash. Period.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Mark is said to be the worst pilot in the cast, though some believe he's better than he claims, and that he actually just likes playing GTA with real objects.
* HeelFaceTurn: Was intended to be a villain in Season 2, but due to obvious conflicts with the other authors, and the impracticality of the intended story arc, Mark's author decided to turn him into a comically insane "good guy."
* HollywoodHealing: No matter how badly he seems to get hurt, or how many bones he breaks, he gets better by the very next day at the latest.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He might be an insufferable jerk, but he's capable of surprising amounts of warmth and kindness.
* LoveRedeems: Ever since he entered a relationship with Fuuka, he's been trying his hardest to become a better person.
* NominalHero: And it's ''[[HeroicComedicSociopath a riot]].''
* PersonOfMassDestruction: One of his super-powers is the power to unleash huge torrents of energy in the form of [[FrickinLaserBeams giant red lasers]]. This has resulted in a few... unfortunate accidents.
* SuperPowerMeltdown: He's known to lose control of his superpowers when he's under great emotional stress. He once destroyed a ''planet'' on ''accident.''
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Ryougi.
* WantsAPrizeForBasicDecency: Anytime he chooses 'not' to be a complete jackass, he seems so very disappointed that nobody noticed his incredible restraint.

!! Sakaki Sakaki
Despite her aloof appearance Sakaki is shy and kind-hearted, with a major soft spot for cats. She is also very protective of her girlfriend Kagura, especially after witnessing [[BreakTheCutie everything she'd been through]], and just about the only time Sakaki is capable of violence is when she is being hurt or threatened.
* BiTheWay
* CovertPervert
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Or at least, she ''wants'' to be.
* HugeSchoolgirl
* ShrinkingViolet

!! Koyomi Mizuhara/Yomi
Better known as Yomi, she is the group's resident WrenchWench and MadScientist, as well as their first (and pretty much only) line of defense against any supernatural threats.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Tomo.
* DoesNotLikeMen: Though she usually gets along with them well enough as long as they don't try to hit on her girl.
* GadgeteerGenius: With a dash of MadScientist thrown in for good measure. So far she's built death rays, secret island bases, giant demon-powered mechs, and flying autonomous weapons platforms.
* GogglesDoSomethingUnusual: She's apparently modified her glasses to incorporate such features as heads-up displays and weaponry.
* InSeriesNickname: Yomi. The only one who actually calls her by her given name seems to be her mother.
* LipstickLesbian: When she's not at work building dangerous and inexplicably racist engines of destruction, anyway.
* {{Meganekko}}
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: Thoroughly averted; while she's shown to be an absolutely brilliant inventor and engineer, she's so ignorant about biology and medicine that she suggested ''Pop Rocks and Coke'' as a remedy for a ''stab wound.''
* TeenGenius
* TwinThreesomeFantasy: It's not just a fantasy for Yomi.
* UptightLovesWild: Despite her constant frustration at her antics Yomi is truly, deeply in love with Tomo.
* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend
* WrenchWench

!! Ayumu Kasuga/Osaka
Or as everyone else calls her, Osaka. Slow and spacey, Osaka often seem to exist in a completely different reality than her friends.
* AxCrazy
* CloudCuckooLander
* HarmlessVillain (for a little while)
* TheIdiotFromOsaka
* InSeriesNickname: Osaka, naturally.
* KansaiRegionalAccent
* PrecisionFStrike: When she attacked Chiyo-chan, not realizing that Chiyo had actually gotten her body back. Really more of a Precision S Strike, since she said "Bullshit!" but since it's Osaka cursing, it still counts.
* TooDumbToLive: And also too dumb to ''die!''

!! Chiyo Mihama
Chiyo is short, kind-hearted, and disgustingly adorable. She has also died at least twice so far.
* ChildProdigy
* DeadpanSnarker: Has become this as of Season 3.5.
* FunSize
* GirlishPigtails
* LittleMissSnarker
* LivingBodysuit: To Shin Chiyo for most of Season 3.
* PuppyLove: ''Really'' screwed up her chances of this with Chiyosuke.
* TokenMiniMoe

!! Chiyosuke Keimaro
The only member of the Male-Azu's that's still around. A former ChildProdigy who bore an uncanny resemblance to Chiyo, and hung out with a bunch of unlikeable jerks. Finally hit puberty during the Timeskip, so he doesn't look like a preteen girl anymore.
* ABoyAndHisX: With Floaty the robot.
* ChildProdigy: Used to be this, but too much time around his new friends seems to have whittled his mind away, replacing his smarts with wonderful visions of Kagura and Sakaki in bathing suits.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: To [[spoiler:Floaty.]]
* LoveTriangle: With Chiyo and Ena

!! Ferdinand Theodore [=McBeany=]/Tardboy
* CampStraight
* CloudCuckooLander
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: Apparently his mother used to lock him up in a cage in the basement and lead him around on a leash.
* MistakenForGay: He lived in a pink house with a pink mailbox before the zombie apocalypse, brought a Hello Kitty lunchbox to school, and collects My Little Ponies.
* NoGuyWantsAnAmazon: Averted. He ''loves'' watching Torako kick ass.
* ThePollyanna
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl
* TooDumbToLive
* UnfortunateNames: Not that going by his nickname of ''Tardboy'' is much better.

!! Kokoro Kosaka
A teenage girl who was created in a lab and experimented on for several years before escaping. Met up with the main cast during Zombie Outbreak. Half-sister to Kagura, Tomo, and Torako. (It's complicated.)
* BerserkButton: Scientists
* CloudCuckooLander: Though she seems to be tuning that down recently.
* CupidHatesOddCouples: Helped Mark and Fuuka get back together, despite having a crush on Mark.
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: For some strange reason, Kokoro's parents never gave her a Birthday Party. They were perfectly normal parents otherwise.
* IJustWantMyBelovedToBeHappy
* TheOphelia: Used to be this. Now making a conscious effort to not to.

!! Yukari Tanizaki

* AlienGeometries: In her mind.
* AxCrazy
* DepravedBisexual: Rapesexual.
* HollywoodCyborg: This just makes her more dangerous.
* ImmuneToFate: She is implied to be this.
* InsaneEqualsViolent
* {{Jerkass}}
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk
* PersonOfMassDestruction
* RoboticPsychopath
* SadistTeacher

!! Minamo Kurosawa/Nyamo
Nyamo is a former high school PE teacher and swim coach. Though she loves Kagura's father, a part of her is certain that her feelings will never be reciprocated, for obvious reasons. Still, she is happy to bear his son and looks forward to living with them as a family.
* DepravedBisexual: She had been repressing her bisexuality for years, until she finally gave in to her urges...by raping Kagura.
* HotForStudent
* LawOfInverseFertility: Despite knowing it was a terrible idea, a very drunk Nyamo had sex with Kagura's equally drunk father, barely twenty-four hours afer the death of his wife and Kagura's mother. Guess what happened?

!! Ryusuke Kagura
Kagura's father. Ryusuke absolutely adores his little girl, and will do anything to protect her and make her happy. He is also the father of Nyamo's baby, which puts him in a rather awkward position, considering she'd raped his daughter.
* BadassBeard
* DotingParent
* [[GoodParents Good Parent]]
* NiceGuy
* OpenMindedParent: Ryusuke had suspected his daughter was gay for a while before she came out, and though he was initially surprised to have it confirmed he immediately accepted and supported her.
* PapaWolf: Ryusuke is usually a pretty mild-mannered guy, but hurt, threaten, or show off naked pictures of his daughter and you're in for a world of hurt.
* ParentWithNewParamour: With his daughter's high school swim coach and [[HotForTeacher first big crush]]. She did not take it very well at first. (One has to wonder how she'll take the news that [[spoiler:they're getting married]].)
** ...And the answer is [[spoiler:badly]].
* RatedMForManly
* WouldntHitAGirl: Most of the time, but averted with Nyamo in Season 3. He made it very clear the only thing saving her from a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown was the fact that she was pregnant with his son.

[[folder: '''Supporting Characters''']]

!! Tsuguhiko Takino
The father of Tomo and Torako Takino, as well as Kokoro Kosaka, and something of a pushover.

* AllLovingHero: Against everything that happens, this man is always happy with life and loves his family.
* TheChewToy
* UsefulNotes/JapaneseChristian: Though his wife and daughters still practice Shinto.
* NonActionGuy
* ThePollyanna: Despite everything he finds out about his daughters.

!! Tsuruko Takino
The mother of Tomo and Torako Takino. She is something of a disciplinarian, intent on making sure her daughters avoid the delinquent lifestyle that she led at their age and sometimes going too far in her attempts to keep them on the right path. She has been especially hard on Torako in the past, which she is currently trying to make up for.
* AcePilot: And a better one than Torako in some regards.
* ActionMom: Though she'd much rather just be a [[StayInTheKitchen normal housewife]].
* BoobsOfSteel
* TheChainsOfCommanding: She was chosen to lead the mech team in the attack on the BigBad's underground base in Season 3, and proceeded to beat herself up when a number of them didn't come back alive. Made even worse by the fact one of the casualties was her own stepdaughter. [[spoiler: Or so she thought.]]
* FormerTeenRebel: A major source of the drama between Tsuruko and Torako is the former's fear that the latter has been following in her footsteps as a juvenile delinquent.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Tsuruko had completely fallen for Asagi's "innocent nice girl" act and thought that she would be a good influence on Torako. She has only recently begun to realize just how wrong she was.
* MamaBear: Lady Kimura learned the hard way that you do ''not'' fuck with Tsuruko Takino's children.
* MyBelovedSmother: Torako misinterprets Tsuruko's attempts to keep her on the straight-and-narrow as this.
* RetiredBadass

!! Naomi Hiwatari/Shimauu
While she was considered the "eccentric one" out of her friends in high school, compared to the rest of the cast Naomi is overwhelmingly normal. After running away from the American military base on which she worked she was nearly captured by a gang and almost murdered by a group of [[SociopathicSoldier Sociopathic Soldiers]], only to be saved at the last minute by Tachikoma 06.
* ActionSurvivor
* TheChewToy: She plays this role from time to time.
* [[ABoyAndHisX A Girl And Her Robot]]: Unfortunately the only lesson she's learning out of the whole experience is how to deal with stubborn jerkasses.
* HeroWorshipper: She has a touch of this towards Sgt. Greene, even going so far as to consider joining the military in order to be more like her. (Though her stated reasons of helping to pay for college and learning practical skills are contributors as well.)
* IJustWantToBeBadass: As part of her hero worship of Sergeant Greene. On multiple occasions she has been reminded that she isn't. At all.
* InSeriesNickname: Shimauu, though it seems to be falling out of use now that most of the people who called her that are dead or elsewhere.
* TheIngenue: Easily one of the most innocent members of the cast. Even ''Chiyo'' has shown signs of being dirtier-minded than her.
* LimitedWardrobe: She wears a lot of Army shirts. Slightly justified because she lost everything but the clothes on her back over the course of the ZombieApocalypse and Season 3, and her being a bit of an Army fangirl due to them saving her life and giving her food and shelter for four months, and her [[HeroWorshipper admiration of Roberta]].
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Naomi is easily the most normal teenager in the cast, being the only one who isn't insane, dumb as a bag of nails, a gigantic pervert, or dating an alien. She is also the least able to deal with all the weirdness and violence the group encounters on a daily basis.
* ParentalAbandonment: Naomi's parents did not survive the ZombieApocalypse.
* StayingWithFriends: Sergeant Greene arranges for her to stay with her family in Iowa at the end of Season 3.
* TooDumbToLive: She ran away from the safety of a military base to wander aimlessly through a ruined city populated mainly by gangsters, thieves, murderers, and rapists. Alone. In the middle of the night. To find someone who, for all she knew, would just tell her to get lost. Great thinking kid, that couldn't ''possibly'' go wrong!
* TraumaInducedAmnesia: It has been suggested in the discussion threads that Shimauu may be repressing traumatic memories of the ZombieApocalypse.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Naomi was originally planned to have developed a violent split personality that took over whenever she felt threatened, as a result of mental trauma sustained during the ZombieApocalypse. Her writer then realized he liked playing her as just a normal (if a bit excitable and dense) teenager more and dropped the idea.

!! Fuuka Ayase
The Middle Daughter of the Ayase family. As annoying as she is friendly.
* BigEater: Thanks to her recent exposure to American Cuisine.
* CovertPervert: Though not nearly covert enough.
* FatGirl: As of Season 3.5, due to gorging on American Food.
* FunTShirt: She ''loves'' these.
* GreenEyedMonster: Though she's dating Mark, Fuuka still seems to have feelings for Koiwai. Cue her reflexively calling Sergeant Greene a whore when she finds out the two of them are on a date.
* IncrediblyLamePun: Fuuka not only loves these, she loves pointing out every single one she makes.
* {{Jerkass}}: To Kokoro.
* MadeOfIron | ImmuneToFate: Survived a Zombie Apocalypse, was captured (and recaptured) by [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} Aperture Science,]] made her way back from a trip to Outer Space, and lived through a ''fucking nuke.'' Either MadeOfIron, or just [[BeginnersLuck really fucking lucky.]]
** Though to be fair, the nuke had been detonated in the upper atmosphere in order to create an EMP blast, so the cast was well out of the the physical blast radius.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Fuuka has a gigantic ego, playing down her flaws and playing up or outright inventing qualities with her nose in the air, despite having little reason to be so full of herself.
** She does have moments where she comes down to Earth and fully acknowledges her shortcomings, usually after she feels as though she's failed in the eyes of someone she cares about.
* WillTheyOrWontThey: For the Longest Time.

!! Koiwai
The adoptive father of Yotsuba Koiwai. He is also currently involved in a romantic relationship with Roberta Greene.
* CunningLinguist: In addition to his native Japanese he is also fluent in English, and seems to have some grasp of Mandarin as well. (Though it hasn't been revealed yet how good a grasp this is.)
* LastNameBasis: Not even his (biological) daughter from the future seems to know what his first name is.
* LongDistanceRelationship: With Roberta.
* NiceGuy
* TheSlacker

!! Roberta Greene
A Sergeant in the United States Army, Roberta first joined the cast when she was assigned to keep an eye on Yotsuba and make sure the Japanese government didn't get their hands on her. Since then she has had several close calls, one near-death experience, prevented a war crime, survived a small-scale nuclear war, and became romantically involved with Yotsuba's father.
* ActionGirlfriend: To Koiwai.
* AscendedExtra
* [[BigBrotherBully Big Sister Bully]]: Towards Amber during their childhood. She is currently trying to make up for it.
* BoisterousBruiser
* BoobsOfSteel
* BoringButPractical: What we've seen of her mech piloting style seems to fall under this, as most of her time in the cockpit is spent simply sneaking around, coordinating troops, and jamming enemy transmissions, and what combat she has been involved in mainly just involved a lot of shooting.
* BrilliantButLazy: [[AllThereInTheManual Implied to be this]].
* ButNotTooForeign: Half Japanese, half Irish-American.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Though she considers herself more of a PunchClockHero, her inability to avoid going out of her way to help others is a clear symptom of this.
* CoolBigSis: To Shimauu.
* CunningLinguist: Roberta apparently enjoys learning new languages as a hobby, and aside from English she is fluent in Japanese and Mandarin, has a decent grasp of Swahili, and has apparently begun teaching herself Cantonese as well. So far she's used these skills mainly just to mess with Ena.
* DirtyBusiness: She has made it clear that she is not comfortable with killing as part of her job, and is quick to impress upon Shimauu and Kokoro that the ability to take a human life is nothing to be proud of.
* FormerTeenRebel: As she says, she was a bad girl in high school.
** To give an example, she ''set her own brother on fire'' during a camping trip.
*** Though to be fair, it was his idea and they were both drunk.
* GoodBadGirl: She is implied to have been this in the past, but she's been trying to outgrow it.
* InSeriesNickname: Twinkie, in reference to her mixed parentage. (Yellow on the outside, white on the inside.)
** Ena seems to have bestowed this nickname upon her sister Amber, too.
* KansaiRegionalAccent: Roberta's mother [[MailOrderBride originally came from Kumiyama-cho in Kyoto Prefecture]], so she and her two siblings all grew up speaking Kyoto-ben as well as English. Any effect this may have on her and her sister's accents when speaking Japanese is lost to the story's TranslationConvention, however.
* KnightInSourArmor: Though her experiences in the Army have left her a bit disillusioned and with a lot of unpleasant memories, she still maintains a strong sense of justice and a slightly idealistic outlook on the world. This can sometimes put her at odds with the more cynical characters.
* TheLadette
* LongDistanceRelationship: With Koiwai, due to her deployment with the Army and the fact that they both currently live on separate landmasses.
* NearDeathExperience: In Season 3, when she is shot in the chest by Yukari.
* [[NiceGuy Nice Girl]]
* NobleProfession: She ''thought'' she would be signing up for one of these when she joined the Army. Now she's not so sure.
** After getting out of the Army, she apparently becomes a high school teacher. Subverted by the fact that she finds most teenagers annoying and only got her teaching degree because [[BrilliantButLazy it required the least amount of effort]].
* UnknownRival: She has ''no'' idea how much Ena hates her guts.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Ai.

!! Amber Greene
Amber is Roberta's younger sister and a graduate student working towards a Ph.D. in ornithology. She is also painfully shy and a deeply closeted lesbian.
* {{Adorkable}}
* AnimeHair: Drawing comparisons to [[DragonballZ Goku]]. (It's apparently just naturally unruly and hard to control, as opposed to a deliberate style.)
* AuthorAppeal: Her love of birds and reptiles is an explicit example of this.
* {{Bifauxnen}}
* [[BigLittleBrother Big Little Sister]]: Not only is Amber taller than Roberta, but also their brother and father.
* CovertPervert
* TheEeyore: She constantly worries about being this, since she is so uncomfortable in many social situations and she fears that everyone will pick up on her anxiety and be made to feel bad themselves. Which just makes her even more miserable, which brings the people around her down even further...
* ExtremeDoormat: Amber tends towards this, out of a desire to avoid conflict and get people to stop bothering her and leave her alone.
* FriendlessBackground: She has exactly ''one'' person she actually considers a friend. Maybe two, depending on how she feels about Shimauu at the time.
* {{Gayngst}}: Due to being tormented and made fun of for most of her life for other reasons, she fears that everyone will reject her for being gay too.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: She really doesn't seem to think too highly of herself, due to years of constantly being picked on by almost everyone, including her two older siblings.
* HotScientist: Well, Hot Scientist-in-Training, according to the other castmembers in Shenanigoats.
* IGotBigger: Roberta was not happy when Amber grew too big for her to easily push around.
* MessyHair
* {{Otaku}}: Towards science in general, but mostly towards zoology and especially ornithology.
* ParalyzingFearOfSexuality
* KansaiRegionalAccent: Though lost to the TranslationConvention, Amber uses Kyoto-ben when speaking Japanese.
* ShrinkingViolet
* SugarAndIceGirl: She ''tries'' to be this, anyway.

!! Ai Tanagawa
Former member of the Yotsuba Gang and friend of Sergeant Greene, Ai is a loud, vulgar, rude, and generally unpleasant young woman. Quick to anger and prone to violence, she is not someone you would want to be around, no matter how physically attractive she may be.
* AscendedExtra
* BeautyIsBad: Very hot, and ''unbearably'' bitchy.
* BoobsOfSteel
* ClusterFBomb: She seems to think that "Fuck" is a punctuation mark.
* CombatPragmatist: One of her favored techniques is flashing a bright light into her opponent's eyes, and then ''beating the shit out of them'' while they're blinded.
* FieryRedhead
* GoodIsNotNice
* HairTriggerTemper
* {{Jerkass}}
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk
* KickTheDog: Her treatment of Rei near the end of Season 3. Let's just say Ai was very lucky that Elesia was more concerned with keeping Rei from taking a 500-foot swan dive than with teaching her some manners.
* MsFanservice
* ObligatorySwearing: She seems to have a hard time finishing a single sentence without swearing at least once.
* ShipSinking: You could ''almost'' feel sorry for her...
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Roberta.
* WillTheyOrWontThey: With Ryougi, for the longest time. They finally did, at which point Ryougi's author decided to pair him with Kokoro instead.

!! Elesia Rumiko
A former assassin who recently worked for the Tokyo branch of the [[Manga/BlackLagoon Church of Violence]], and an old friend of Shinji Ryougi. She currently lives in Hawaii, teaching karate and trying to settle into a more or less quiet, still kinda sorta illegal life.
* ActionGirl
* BerserkButton: Hurting or threatening someone she cares about is generally not good for your health.
* BiTheWay: Pretty strongly implied, anyway.
* ChurchMilitant
* ExtendedDisarming: Lampshaded by Yomi.
--> "How can you ''move?''"
* {{Hammerspace}}: See above.
* InformedAbility: Unfortunately, most of her on-screen opponents being nigh-unstoppable supernatural beings has relegated much of her fighting prowess to this.
* NaughtyNuns
* MoralityChain: Rei.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Elesia was originally intended as a Villain, who would have stolen as much information from Crazy Julio and the Dai Kagurren as possible. She would have then danced over the MoralEventHorizon by using mind control on Ryougi to force him to fight someone he cared about while she escaped. However, various story elements came up, and Elesia's author decided against this.
* WillTheyOrWontThey: With Sasuke.

!! Ellen Ryougi
Mother to Shinji Ryougi and a veteran of two wars,
* BiTheWay
* MissingMom: For much of her son's life. She's currently learning the consequences of this.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: She has one, it just takes a back seat to hug time more often than not.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Ellen honestly thought she'd be doing some good by leaving her family. But not only did she end up trapped in the country for far longer than she'd expected, the expertise and contacts she brought in ends up restarting the war.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: A counter-example.
* SweaterGirl

!! Sasuke Sanaino
A former assassin and member of the Yanda Gang, Sasuke is trying (and failing, it looks like) to settle down and live a quiet, normal life with Elesia and Rei in Hawaii.
* AlwaysSaveTheGirl: He is like this with Elesia and Rei. When Igal offers to give up his hold on Rei's soul if Sasuke [[SadisticChoice murders thirteen random people]], he accepts without hesitating. Elesia is understandably horrified at this.
* AntiHero
* AscendedExtra
* BerserkButton: Hurting or threatening Rei with him in the room is not a good idea.
* EmotionsVsStoicism: Due to training, he tends towards the stoic side of this. Elesia is quite good at getting him over to the emotional side though.
* MoralityChain: For him, it seems to be Rei.
* ObliviousToLove: Though the jury's still out on whether [[spoiler:Elesia's kiss]] will get it through his head.
* UnscrupulousHero
* WellIntentionedExtremist
* WhatTheHellHero: Elesia's reaction to him [[spoiler:accepting Igal's trade of thirteen souls for Rei's soul.]]
* WillTheyOrWontThey: With Elesia

!! Rei Kakizaki
Rei is a deeply traumatized survivor of Japan's ZombieApocalypse and currently Elesia and Sasuke's MoralityChain.
* AscendedExtra: Her writer has commented several times how odd it is that she went from a background face to a full-fledged character so quickly.
* AttemptedRape: In her backstory.
* BlindingBangs
* BreakTheCutie: And boy did she break!
* CuteMute: Especially now that [[spoiler:the one person she ''did'' talk to is dead]].
* ADateWithRosiePalms: She recently discovered masturbation and experienced her first orgasm while shut up in a closet.
* DespairEventHorizon: Poor Rei sailed right on over [[spoiler:with the death of her sister Ran. Having lost [[LivingEmotionalCrutch the one person she had left]] and feeling alone and helpless surrounded by people who tolerated her at best and hated her at worst, she immediately tried to [[DrivenToSuicide commit suicide]] and when stopped by Elesia went into an AngstComa]]. She has since begun to recover, at least somewhat.
* DoesNotLikeMen: While she does not actively dislike them, Rei tends to be rather skittish around men (and soldiers in general) after a [[AttemptedRape bad experience]] in a refugee camp.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Justified, since she never goes outside anyway.
* DumbStruck: She hasn't spoken a word since [[spoiler:Ran's death]].
* EvilTwin: Evil Alternate Universe Rei, though she's not so much evil as she is a [[NiceHat top hat]]-wearing {{Jerkass}}.
* ExtremeOmnivore: One of Rei's more unsettling habits is her tendency to compulsively devour any insect she sees.
* FriendlessBackground: Due to her shyness and her sheltered childhood Rei never made any friends growing up. She didn't mind too much though, since her parents and siblings filled those roles.
* HiddenBuxom: If it weren't for that blanket...
* {{Hikikomori}}: As a result of her sheltered childhood and [[BreakTheCutie intensely traumatic experiences]] during the ZombieApocalypse.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: Rei was this for her sister, and vice versa. She also seems to have become something of a crutch for Sasuke in Season 3.5, as he admits that she reminds him that there is still goodness in the world and that just seeing her every morning is enough to brighten his day.
* MoralityChain: To Elesia and Sasuke in Season 3.5, giving them both something to live for and a reason to settle down and leave their bloody pasts behind.
* NightmareFuelColoringBook: Rei is apparently a very gifted artist...though what we've seen of her work is quite disturbing.
* OlderThanTheyLook: From the neck down Rei's body is actually very well developed and clearly that of a young woman, but since she keeps it hidden under a [[SecurityBlanket blanket]] and most people only see her youthful-looking face it's easy to assume that she's younger than she really is. Being short doesn't help, either.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette
* SecurityBlanket: She is rarely seen without one.
* ShrinkingViolet
* StringyHairedGhostGirl: One reason she was so unpopular among the Yotsuba Gang was because she looked like this.
* SurvivorGuilt: Especially since she'd promised [[spoiler:Ran]] she wouldn't let anything happen to her...
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: See ExtremeOmnivore above.
* TraumaInducedAmnesia: Rei suffers from this to a degree, in that she has suppressed many of her memories of the zombie apocalypse and can become extremely unpredictable and violent if something happens to make her remember.

!! Ran Kakizaki
The older sister of Rei Kakizaki. Like her sister Ran had been deeply traumatized by the loss of her family and the events of the ZombieApocalypse, though she was still mostly capable of functioning and dealing with other people. [[spoiler:Killed when she and Rei took a tumble down a flight of stairs while running away from a battle.]]
* AscendedExtra
* BlindingBangs: In order to shade her light-sensitive eyes.
* BreakTheCutie: Though to a somewhat lesser degree than Rei.
* CovertPervert: Ran was apparently a chronic masturbator, and liked to get off in places like public bathrooms.
* ADateWithRosiePalms: See above.
* DefiledForever: Averted. Though she was certainly upset that Daisuke had taken her virginity, she also knew that she had been through far, far worse and was sure she would be able to get over it. [[spoiler:Well, if she hadn't died soon after.]]
* DrivenToSuicide: She never actually worked up the nerve to go through with it though. (Mainly because her suicidal thoughts usually involved [[spoiler:taking Rei with her]] as well. That did a pretty good job of scaring her off the idea.)
* ExtremeDoormat
* FreakyFashionMildMind: Fuuka was absolutely terrified of her the first time they met...until she started talking to her.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: When they fell down that flight of stairs, Ran used her own body to protect Rei from the fall, at the cost of breaking her neck.]]
* [[spoiler:KillTheCutie]]
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: To Rei.
* ObliviousToLove
* PromotionToParent: She was forced into a caretaker role for Rei when their mother was infected with a zombie virus, killed and ate their father, and tried to do the same to her before Rei intervened with a baseball bat. No wonder the kid's screwed up.
* ShrinkingViolet
* StepfordSmiler: A bit of a Type A, doing her best to put on a smiling face for Rei's sake while hiding how depressed and helpless she really felt.
* StringyHairedGhostGirl: Ran could be ''very'' creepy, whether she meant to be or not.

!! Daisuke Oonishi
A sleazy [[TheCasanova casanova]] with zero respect for women.
* TheCasanova: A rather despicable example.
* FreudianExcuse: Inherited his misogynistic views of women from his father and uncle, [[AllThereInTheManual who raised him.]]
* FriendsWithBenefits: With Kasumi Chiba.
* KarmaHoudini: ''Maybe.'' Camden isn't a nice place.
* PutOnABus: To Camden, New Jersey.
* RevengeByProxy: He was angry at Ryougi for making him look like a cowardly idiot, so he took the virginity of Ran, who he knew he had a crush on.
* TooDumbToLive: From waving around naked pictures of Kagura while sitting within sight of her father to plotting to try to sex up a girl known for her violent freak-outs, Daisuke's judgment was not always the best in the world.

!! Kasumi Chiba
A hippie who enjoys photography. Former Yotsuba Gang Member.
* AscendedExtra
* CameraFiend: A habit that's provoked at least two attacks from Ai.
* CatSmile
* EthicalSlut
* EyesAlwaysShut
* FriendsWithBenefits: Had this relationship with Daisuke Oonishi, among others. Most recently with Reizo's brother Ichiro, it seems.
* [[spoiler:GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion: Averted. She wants to keep this a secret.]] Is oblivious to the fact that everyone and their mum's already know.
* KansaiRegionalAccent: [[AllThereInTheManual Being from Osaka, and all]].
* NewAgeRetroHippie
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: She was almost offered up to be Osaka's older sister, before Crimson Assassin volunteered Risu for the position.

!! Billy Tanahashi
Kasumi's cousin and a bit of a loser.
* AgentMulder
* AnimeHair: You could open a tin can with those bangs.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Despite living in a world where there was a highly-publicized ZombieApocalypse, giant mechs, and ''having a job as an alien chaser'', he steadfastly refuses to believe in aliens, even when ''they are destroying a city block in front of his face.''
* LongLostRelative: He and Kasumi had apparently been out of touch for so long that she hadn't been aware that he lived in Hawaii.
* TooDumbToLive: If his behavior in the Shenanigoats thread is any indication, his two main pairing choices are [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk Ai]] and [[NietzscheWannabe Li Wei]].

!! Gendo Yamane
The Yotsuba Gang's second in command. Yamane handled many of the gang's day to day affairs that would never have occurred to a five-year-old, and there were some members, such as Ai Tanagawa, who considered him the gang's true leader. Despite being part of the most powerful gang in Japan he is very kind-hearted, and especially has a soft spot for kids.
* AscendedExtra
* ChickMagnet
* FriendToAllChildren: The whole reason he ended caught up in the whole mech gang business in the first place was because he'd stopped to help Yotsuba find her father and then stuck with her to keep her safe.
* FunnyAfro
* NiceGuy
* NobleProfession: He was a kindergarten teacher before everything went to hell.
* TeamMom: Despite being male.

!! Tetsuo Matsuoka
The Yotsuba Gang's third in command and Yamane's closest friend. Tetsuo is immature, not especially bright, ineffectual, and generally not very well regarded among his fellow gang members.
* AscendedExtra
* CasanovaWannabe
* TheNeidermeyer

!! Chie Togusa
The gang's frighteningly competent fourth in command. Chie was in actuality a government agent sent to infiltrate the group and bring them down from within, but found herself reluctant to carry out her mission and finally executed a HeelFaceTurn when her employers decided she'd become too much of a liability and decided to kill her.
* AcePilot: A mix of Steamroller and Plugger.
* AntiHero
* BoobsOfSteel
* DeathGlare: One to rival [[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 the Admiral's]].
* HeelFaceTurn: Finally pushed to this when her employers decided she'd become a [[HeKnowsTooMuch liability]] and decided to have her killed.
* InformedAbility: Sadly, most of her moments of badassery conveniently happen [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome off camera]]. This doesn't stop certain members of the cast from being scared shitless of her, though.
* {{Jerkass}}: Has really ramped this up since escaping from the CIA after being held prisoner and tortured nearly to death on an almost daily basis for four months.
* MsFanservice
* UnscrupulousHero
* WellIntentionedExtremist
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Gray, in her case. According to backstory, she was born with a recessive gene that caused her to go gray by the time she'd hit puberty.

!! Chihiro Hayasaka
* BiTheWay
* BungledSuicide: Between Seasons 3 and 3.5.
* DependingOnTheWriter: The Chihiro of Season 3 is ''very'' different from the Chihiro of Seasons 2 and 3.5.
* RunningGag: People not noticing she's in the room, forgetting who she is, and generally acting as though she doesn't exist.
* {{Yandere}}: For a time in Season 3. She is currently getting psychiatric therapy to combat this.

!! Miura Hayasaka
Chihiro's little sister, and Ena's best friend.
* AmbiguouslyGay: ''Maybe.'' Though nothing definitive has been said on the matter she has displayed some very LesYay behavior towards Ena and Kagura in the past, and it was heavily implied by her previous writer that she would grow up to be at least bisexual. Now that she has changed hands that behavior seems to have been toned down somewhat, however.
** Also, she's ''only 10.''
* {{Fangirl}}: Towards Kagura for a while.
* LittleMissSnarker
* ShipperOnDeck
* {{Tomboy}}

!! Rachel Jenkins
Also known by her nickname Handlebarz, Rachel is a troublemaker with an odd obsession with mustard.
* {{Jerkass}}
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* MilitaryBrat: Her father was a soldier in the US Army.
* MissingMom: Her mother apparently disappeared after they returned to Japan between seasons. Strangely, this is mentioned once and then all but forgotten.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Don't eat anything Rachel makes, unless you ''really'' like mustard.

!! Matsuda Mitsubishi
The group's token stoner. Matsuda has a talent for botany, and has spent years breeding different strains of marijuana (which she would then sell to her classmates). She also has herpes.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Got her own story arc when Shin Chiyo stole her Marijuana.
* [[FriendOrIdolDecision Friend or Drug Decision]]: When Shin Chiyo gave her the option of saving her Pot or saving Moto. [[spoiler:Since the hostage Moto turned out to be a demon in disguise, she would've been screwed either way.]]
* TheStoner: She's only comfortable when she's high.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Hash Brownies

!! Risu Kasuga
Osaka's older sister. She is much more coherent than her sibling, and enjoys playing music, astronomy, and picking up chicks. Currently falling for Amber Greene.
* ClosetKey: She's currently trying to be Amber's.
* EthicalSlut: She makes no bones about going to Kagura's party to find someone to spend the night with. Unfortunately she chose [[{{Gayngst}} Amber]], who promptly [[ParalyzingFearOfSexuality panicked and ran away]].
* {{Gaydar}}
* GeekyTurnOn: Amber's science knowledge.
* KansaiRegionalAccent: Just like her sister.
* LongLostRelative: To Osaka, though only technically long-lost because she showed up so late in the game.
* WeaknessTurnsHerOn: A big reason for her attraction to Amber is her shyness, which she finds ''adorable.''

!! Motoko Kagura
Ryusuke's wife and Kagura's mother, as well as the biological mother of Kokoro. She was killed in the ZombieApocalypse, and has since become an angel tasked with helping the souls of the dead adjust to the afterlife.
* CasualKink: She met her husband at an orgy in college, and apparently likes to engage in group sex up in Heaven. After visiting her husband and daughter as a ghost in Season 3, Motoko seriously {{Squick}}s out Kagura by gleefully informing her that they have all-girl orgies, too.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Motoko supports her husband and Nyamo and sincerely hopes that they'll be able to put whatever it is that's holding them apart behind them and be happy together, because she doesn't want him to spend the rest of his life mourning her and feeling sad.
** It's probably for the best that she doesn't know that things were so awkward between them because Nyamo had ''raped Kagura.''
* PosthumousCharacter: Killed offscreen during the ZombieApocalypse, and now appears only as an angel or a ghost.

!! Myoji Sakakuro
The more-or-less Leader of the Male-Azu's. Had the personality of a cardboard box. Died when Herr Medic pulled the plug on his life support.
* BadassMustache: [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Melted off his face...upon contact with nitrous oxide...somehow]].
* BiggerIsBetterInBed: Virtually his only memorable trait.
* ConvenientComa
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Was one of the Three Male-Azu's that was unceremoniously killed off between seasons.
* {{Expy}}: Of Sakaki
* FlatCharacter
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: To Chihiro.

!! Masanobu Himeaoki/Kyoto
Close friend of Sakakuro. [[{{Squick}} Underaged little love slave to Yukari.]] Got sent to Hell when Yomi blessed the ship. [[spoiler:Recently came back after hitching a ride when The Boss tried to bind himself to a new body, which Kyoto seems to have taken over.]]
* AmIJustAToyToYou: [[spoiler:Yes, he Was.]]
* AttemptedRape: To Osaka. In his ''first appearance.''
* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead: Much to Yomi and Sakaki's chagrin.]]
* CaptainObvious
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Also unceremoniously killed off between seasons.
* FreudianExcuse: One of the reasons he was so unpopular was his tendency to blame virtually all of his problems on his over-the-top abusive mother, and use his awful childhood to justify all the crap he'd pull.
** Nevermind that one member of the cast was raised to be a killing machine, and one spent six years as a lab rat, subjected to unspeakable tortures and psychological training, and both still end up more likable than him.
* {{Expy}}: Of Osaka
* EyesAreUnbreakable: The only explanation for how he can still see after getting [[AbusiveParents slashed across the eyes with a knife]]. Later [[RetCon retconned]] to a tequila bottle, [[RuleOfFunny because the writers thought that was funnier]].
* {{Jerkass}}
* LikesOlderWomen
* MisterSeahorse: When he and Yukari had a child, ''he'' was the one who got pregnant and gave birth. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny To a toaster.]]
* [[NakedFirstImpression Rapist First Impression]]
* PokeThePoodle: His comeback "Reign of Terror" seems to more or less consist of this.
* SplitPersonalityTakeover: In his new body, he switches between himself and the Boss whenever he recives a blow to the head, a'la [[Manga/ElfenLied Lucy]].
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Sakakuro, and with a ''lot'' more focus on the Vitriolic part.

!! Moto Ueda
A compulsive liar who claimed to be Tomo and Torako's half-brother, among other things. Another member of the Male Azu's. Dated Matsuda (for roughly a day). Died of Herpes (somehow).
* BrotherSisterIncest: Wanted to invoke this with Tomo
* CharacterDevelopment: One reason Moto was so hated by the other writers was his writer's tendency to sidestep many opportunities to develop him into someone more interesting, and instead chose avenues that just made him less interesting and more unlikeable.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: ''Also'' also unceremoniously killed between seasons
* {{Expy}}: Of Tomo
* {{Hatedom}}: Some of the writers ''really'' don't like him.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Throughout his time with the cast Moto discovered that he had the ability to heal plants with a touch, cure himself of herpes, and somehow witness events in the past that he would have been far too young to remember.
* {{Retcon}}: The fact that he had been introduced as the son of Tomo and Torako's father by a different mother did not go over well with the people playing the rest of the Takino family, as they had not been informed or consulted beforehand. After the person writing him left and he was killed off, it was decided to retcon out any actual blood relation he had to the family.
* STDImmunity: After having sex with Matsuda and catching her herpes, he discovered he could cure himself by simply willing it out of his body. Later [[RetCon retconned]] into simply being one of his delusions.

!! Eri Mizuhara
Yomi's mother. After the collapse of Japan she was abducted by the CIA and taken to the Undisclosed Location, where they spent eight months trying to install Windows in her brain.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Believes in the existence of God and other such supernatural entities as demons and ghosts and has witnessed a ZombieApocalypse firsthand, but still demands proof when told of the existence of extraterrestrial life.
* DeadpanSnarker
* [[KidWithTheLeash Woman With The Leash]]: Igal is bound to obey her every command because she spoke his true name. She wasn't really expecting it to actually work, and is a bit freaked out by it.
* {{Meganekko}}
* [[HeKnowsTooMuch She Knows Too Much]]: Or at least the crew of the ''Slithery Dee'' THINK she does, which is why they want to sell her to the local Triads.

!! Tachikoma 06/Six
After getting separated from his [[Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex masters]], Six rescued Shimauu from a group of [[SociopathicSoldier Sociopathic Soldiers]] and they quickly became friends...sort of.
* ArtificialIntelligence
* BloodKnight: And yet somehow, he still manages to be a coward.
* CowardlyLion
* DeadpanSnarker
* HeroicSacrifice: When The Boss boarded Crazy Julio, Six tried to slow him down by jumping on him. It didn't work very well.
* {{Jerkass}}
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Towards Shimauu.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Towards everyone else.
* MiniMecha
* RobotBuddy
* SpiderTank
* WeCanRebuildHim: He spent much of the time between Season 3 and 3.5 being reassembled by Yomi.
* YouAreNumberSix

!! Reizo Yamaguchi
Another former member of the Yotsuba Gang. Along with Kasumi he currently lives in his brother's apartment while working as a pizza delivery boy. He also supplements his income by selling weed on the side, apparently including Kagura among his regular buyers.
* AscendedExtra
* CoolCar: His Aston-Martin [=DB7=]. Which he uses to deliver pizzas.
* ForeheadOfDoom
* GoodEyesEvilEyes: You'd probably be excused for assuming he's a greater asshole than he actually is.
* JerkAss
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* {{Yakuza}}: His father worked for them, apparently.

!! Ena Ayase
Fuuka's little sister, and an adorable raging bigot. Hates everyone that isn't a heterosexual Japanese with a fiery passion. Currently trapped in that endless nightmare that she calls "Living in America."
* BilingualBackfire: Played with when she tells Roberta "Fuck your mother" in Chinese. She had no idea what she was actually saying other than that it made Chinese people angry, and when it became clear that Roberta, Koiwai, and Ryougi all knew ''exactly'' what she'd just said she (unsuccessfully) demanded a translation.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Don't let her cuteness fool you.
* HeroWorshipper: To Ryougi.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Is disturbingly good with a gun.
* InsaneEqualsViolent: Used to keep a little black notebook of all the people she hated and planned to take revenge on. Very nearly put Fuuka into it when Fuuka called her on it.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Miura usually manages to talk her down from her seething hatred.
* LoveTriangle: In one with Chiyosuke and Chiyo
* PrecociousCrush: On Yanda, which he is blissfully unaware of.
* PuppyLove: With Chiyosuke, if Miura has her way.
* [[ShutUpHannibal Shut Up, Spy!]]: Ena reveals to the BLU Spy that she knows how to save everyone from BLU Team's nuke. As he opens his mouth to taunt her, to tell her she has no time left, and say that she's solely to blame for all his success, she shoots him dead and gets to work.
* TroubledSympatheticBigot: Struggling to overcome her racist and homophobic tendencies.
* UnknownRival: Ena ''hates'' Roberta. The latter remains utterly oblivious to this.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Her author had originally planned a storyline where, due to a combination of circumstantial evidence and the [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Dead Ringer]], Ena would have been made to appear to have murdered Miura. However, conflicts with the other authors nixed this.

!! Ika Musume
An adorable, kind-hearted little Squid Girl with evil ambitions to enslave humanity. She's taken a liking to former invader Mark Westion.

* [[FishOutOfWater Squid out of Water]] - She spent most of her life living under the sea. As such, she doesn't understand human culture all that well (although she sometimes displays oddly specific knowledge).
* ModernMajorGeneral - She's exceptional at everything she attempts ''except'' carrying out invasions. After viewing a few math problems, she learned how to solve high-school math in the blink of an eye, and high-level math as fast as she can write; she can learn languages just by hearing a few spoken sentences; she's a godlike drummer just ''out of nowhere.'' Still can't conquer a small cafe out on the beach to save her life.
* HeroWorshipper: To Mark.
* [[PrehensileHair Tentacle Hair]]: She has ten super-strong, super-fast, super-dextrous tentacles growing out of her head. They're more useful than her hands most of the time.
* [[ReplacementGoldfish Replacement Squid]]: To Padudu, as Mark's overambitious waterborne-animal-based little minion. [[LampshadedTrope Lampshaded.]]
* VerbalTic - "Stop making fun of the way I talk~de geso!"


[[folder: '''Minor Characters''']]

!! Li Wei Yang
A Chinese-American gunrunner from Hawaii and First Mate aboard the ''Slithery Dee.'' Has an extremely nasty disposition, and a drug-addicted brother, Jiao Long.
* {{Expy}}: Of Revy, from ''Manga/BlackLagoon''
* GunsAkimbo
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk
* MoralityPet: Her Brother, Jiao Long
** Though she generally treats him more like a [[TheMillstone Millstone]].
* NietzscheWannabe

!! Dillon
A southern gunrunner and Captain of the ''Slithery Dee.'' A habitual liar, he claims to have served in the US Army, the US Marine Corps, the French Foreign Legion, six or so Black-Ops Teams, and the [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Salvation Army.]]
* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy: If he is to be believed, Adolf Hitler had a son and/or a clone, Idi Amin had an "even more evil brother" named Jeffrey... and Dillon helped assassinate them all.
* BigScaryBlackMan
* BlatantLies
* ConsummateLiar
* StraightGay
* WordOfGay

!! Julio Chavez/Crazy Julio
A former gunrunner who sold Torako her HumongousMecha and had his brain transplanted into an AirborneAircraftCarrier he stole on a whim. (He has since come to realize the drawbacks to this.) Has seven ex-wives and eleven children.
* AirborneAircraftCarrier
* AllThereInTheManual: Apparently acquainted with Li Wei and Dillon. One can only await their reactions when they find out what happened to him.
* HollywoodCyborg
* KavorkaMan: His large number of ex wives, combined with Torako's description of him in Season 3, would indicate him as this.
* LivingShip
* LovableSexManiac: Perhaps justified, since he is now physically unable to have sex.
* SapientShip
* WetwareCPU

!! Bishy [=McBitchpants=]
A womanizing, ambiguously wealthy playboy from Hawaii who tried to steal Sakaki away from Kagura.
* {{Bishonen}}
* ButtMonkey: After all the crap he went through after meeting the cast, you can't help but feel sorry for the guy.
* TheCasanova
* ChivalrousPervert: His reluctance to hit Tomo for Lady Kimura revealed him as this.
** At least, he seemed like one of these until he started plotting to murder Sakaki for dragging him into the craziness of Season 3.
* MeaningfulName
* MistakenForGay: ''Everyone'' assumes this. His bright pink jumbo jet doesn't exactly help his case.
* UnfortunateNames
* WouldntHitAGirl

!! Dr. Madeline Chen
A very fashionable psychiatrist. Currently helping Chihiro and Jiao Long with their respective problems. Hired Rinko as an intern.
* [[ApatheticTeacher Apathetic Psychiatrist]]: Averted; She does take her job very seriously, but her cold and aloof attitude tends to give people the wrong impression.
* [[spoiler:DroppedABridgeOnHer]]: Briefly, until the mid-Season 4 retcon.
* HelloNurse: She seems to have this effect on men, causing Ryougi to run straight into a lamp post after passing him on the street.
* MafiaPrincess: Her father has ties to the local [[TheTriadsAndTheTongs Chinese Mafia]]. This has led Dr. Chen to become the Go-To-Girl for various Mafia Members and other criminals with Psychiatric problems.
* MsFanservice: "blatant fanservice tit shot.png"

!! Snoop Dogg
Yes, ''that'' Snoop Dogg. Wound up getting mixed up in Matsuda's duel against Shin Chiyo. Now runs an Intergalactic Pot Shop in Outer Space.
* TheCameo
* NoodleIncident: Matsuda rescues him from a particularly nasty one involving the KKK surrounding his house.

!! Igor
Randomly pops up for no particular reason.
* DropInCharacter
* {{Expy}}: Of Igor from ''Film/YoungFrankenstein''.

!! Yuu Wada
Class Slut back before the Zombie Apocalypse. The one who gave Matsuda her infamous herpes. Died of every STD known to man.
* AnythingThatMoves
* CoitusEnsues: And ''always'' ensued.
* DeathBySex
* GoodBadGirl: Aside from the fact that she was a walking culture lab of [=STDs=] and clearly was not careful about using protection, Wada was generally quite friendly and open-hearted.
* ReallyGetsAround
* STDImmunity: Subverted.

!! Thomas Mencia
A Captain in the US Army and the commanding officer of Henderson and Greene. He is something of a soft touch, and occasionally lets those in his command get away with extremely insubordinate behavior.
* MauveShirt
* NiceGuy

!! Rebecca Henderson
A Second Lieutenant in the US Army and Sergeant Greene's platoon leader.
* BigDamnHeroes: Possibly minor examples, but saving the Dai Kagurren's bridge crew moments before it exploded and ambushing Kurskev to help Torako get to safety has to count for ''something.''
* GenreSavvy: She doesn't like to talk about her husband and son back home, as people who do so in movies are often soon killed.
* MauveShirt

!! Misato Kakizaki
The middle Kakizaki sister. She was attending college when the ZombieApocalypse broke out, and was torn apart and devoured by her undead classmates.
* BeautifulAllAlong: When she ties her hair back to actually let everyone see her face.
* {{Bifauxnen}}
* BlindingBangs: It seems to run in the family...
* DeadpanSnarker
* GreekChorus: One of her main gimmicks is to negatively comment on the decisions her writer makes and generally complain about the way he treats his characters.
* OnlySaneMan: Of the three Kakizaki sisters, Misato was apparently the only one who wasn't cripplingly shy, socially awkward, and unintentionally creepy.
* PosthumousCharacter: She only ever shows up in the discussion threads and in Shenanigoats, since she was killed in the canon timeline long before either of her sisters were ever introduced.
* {{Troll}}: In her very first appearance, tricked Koiwai into thinking she was a daughter from the future that he had conceived with Ran before abandoning her.

!! Katsuko Pournelle
A talent agent currently working for Kagura and, most recently, Tardboy. She was also Torako's agent for a while.
* ButNotTooForeign: AllThereInTheManual. Her mother was a Japanese woman from Okinawa, and her father was a US Marine stationed there. Her ability to speak Japanese is justified by the fact that she was born in Okinawa and lived there until she was thirteen.
* EtTuBrute: A minor example; she feels a twinge of guilt over helping Tardboy to get his own reality show, since she knew Torako would inevitably be dragged into it despite wanting nothing more to do with the limelight. Torako and Yomi even call her a traitor when they find out.
* {{Meganekko}}
* MilitaryBrat

* FriendsWithBenefits: With Kasumi.
* GoodEyesEvilEyes
* JerkAss
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Debatable; he acts like a massive prick and fully admits to helping Shimauu and Fuuka just so he can keep messing with them, but he ''is'' also letting his brother and his friend live in his apartment...
* {{Yakuza}}: He wasn't involved himself (as far as we know), but his father was, according to him.

* BigOlEyebrows: Apparently a common trait among her kind.
* BizarreAlienBiology: Despite their human-like appearance her species have respiratory systems more analogous to birds than to mammals, gestate their young in pouches like marsupials, lack breasts or even external teats, have [[ExoticEquipment wildly different genitalia]] that is in no way compatible with ours, and almost never have sex for non-breeding purposes because [[MaritalRapeLicense the experience is so painful and traumatic for the females that they rarely ever go through with it willingly]].
* BreathWeapon: Her species uses ''[[NauseaFuel projectile vomit]]'' as a defense mechanism.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Her species will eat almost ''anything'' as long as it's meat, though they do have a taboo against eating other sentient beings.

* ImAHumanitarian: Her people's dominant religion has no concept of an afterlife, so in order to save their loved ones' souls from TheNothingAfterDeath they ritualistically consume their flesh so they can live on inside them.

* [[EmotionlessGirl Emotionally-Repressed Girl]]: Possibly due to her crippling depression issues.

%%* HimeCut:
* MaliciousSlander: Plays it for laughs- her goal in life is to spread outlandish rumors about celebrities, to see how long it takes to get sued. These claims include: that the Pope ding-dong-ditched her for a month straight, that Tom Brokaw stole her car's hood ornament and sold it back to her on ebay, and that Katie Couric [[BlackComedyRape date-raped her]].

!! Tau Mancer
An [[VideoGame/GalacticCivilizations Altarian]] agent, given free rein to do as he sees fit in the galaxy for the benefit of Altaria and the detriment of any "evil" he can find. Joined Ip-Sing's crew after hearing about her run-in with the Veluszhi.

* BiTheWay: Though being in the military has made him more used to men, Altarians make no distinction for gender, species or ''anything else''.

* KnightTemplar: His species used to be like this, with dire consequences.
* ShonenHair

Another alien [[SpacePirates space pirate]] with a serious grudge against Ip-Sing after she attacked her ship with no provocation aside from the (incorrect) belief that she was a slave-trader.

A former classmate of Kagura and Sakaki. Until recently she had a rabid crush on the latter, and utterly hated Kagura for standing in her way.
* LoveMakesYouCrazy
* PsychoLesbian: In the second and third seasons. She seems to be trying to get over it by Season 3.5, however.
* RedRightHand: After Kagura punches her onto a outcropping of volcanic rocks, she bears an uncanny resemblance to [[Comicbook/TwoFace Harvey Dent]].
* {{Yandere}}

!! Ayako Kimura/Lady Kimura
Mister Abe Kimura's wife. Previously thought to be sweet and innocent, she was recently revealed to be even more dangerous and depraved than her husband.

* WallCrawl

!! Vladimir Kurskev
A Russian AS pilot and former Spetznaz soldier involved with the Red Star terrorist group.

* GalacticConqueror
* {{Expy}}: Think [[StarWars Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader]] [[X meets Y in one glorious package]]. With horns.

!! Fedt-geszhine / "Nerdmaster"
Second-in-Command of the Veluszhi Imperial Military. The only character quite possibly more evil than Warmaster, Fedt-geszhine is a scrawny mad scientist with a complete and total lack of ethics.

* AbsoluteXenophobe
* AliensAreBastards
* AssInAmbassador: She wasn't exactly made with courtesy in mind.
* BadassBoast: Since her primary function is to talk up the Cluster and tell people just how utterly they're about to be curb-stomped, she tends to make a lot of these.

* DeathIsCheap: If her current body is destroyed, she'll simply download into a new one.
* EmotionlessGirl

* TimeAbyss: She claims to be around four hundred thousand years old, and the aliens that created her are even ''older.''
