[[folder:Pope Matthai Reese]]
!!Pope Matthai Reese
--> Voiced by: Masafumi Kimura (Japanese), Bob Magruder (English)

The Pope of The Roman Catholic Chuch and head of the Vatican. While he appears to be [[TheManBehindTheMan in complete control over the church's affairs]], he's something of a puppet to Fiamma of the Right. That said, he's not fully content to play second fiddle...

After WorldWarIII, he steps down and is replaced by Pietro Yogdis.
* AndIMustScream: He knows a spell that can separate a person's soul from their body and leave them trapped for 40 years. He tried to do this to Fiamma after the latter told him his plan, but he failed.
* BadassBeard: As seen in the picture, and he ''is'' rather powerful.
* CoolOldGuy: Despite being UsefulNotes/ThePope, he still believes in the greater good, even if it will undermine the Roman Catholics.
* {{Expy}}: [[WordOfGod Artist notes indicate]] that his appearance is based on [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Gandalf]].
* GoodRunningEvil: A reasonable leader who unfortunately has to control minions whose actions are questionable at best.
* HeroicSacrifice: What he intended in order to save the Vatican and a large portion of Rome from Fiamma's attack. He lives.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Ironically, he is the only good and the most rational leader of all the magic factions. And most of what he does, like investigating Touma, are for the safety of the church. Thank God he's in charge compared to his [[WellIntentionedExtremist subordinates]].
* UnwittingPawn: To Fiamma -- but is at least smart enough to play along until his time to pounce is ripe.
* YoureInsane: Calls Fiamma nuts at the end of Volume 16 after the latter explains his plan. Fiamma retaliates by ''[[DisproportionateRetribution destroying St. Peter's Basilica]]''.

[[folder:Pope Pietro Yogdis]]
!!Pope Pietro Yogdis

An ambitious Cardinal who was eager to usurp Matthai Reese's position during WorldWarIII. His grab for power ended before it could even begin, but to his shock, Reese harbored no ill will toward him and gave him his blessing to become the next Pope after he retired. Pietro was so touched that he turned over a new leaf.
* HeelFaceTurn: After Matthai Reese's kind words, he becomes a true Pope.
* LackOfEmpathy: Before his HeelFaceTurn, he did not care about the people suffering during the war, only about becoming Pope.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He's modeled after Creator/AnthonyHopkins.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: After his HeelFaceTurn.
* VillainousBreakdown: When his grab for power failed, he was left screaming like a child, begging someone to kill Reese.
-->'''Pietro''': No!!!!! I-IÖI will be the next Pope!! It has already been decided!! You are nothing but a ghost! There is nothing left for you to do!! K-kill him. It was his fault that the Roman Catholic Church fell into such chaos!! Once I am Pope, I promise you I will make you much, much wealthier than you are now!! So kill hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!

[[folder:Orsola Aquinas]]
!!Orsola Aquinas

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AyaEndo (Japanese), Mallorie Rodack (English)

A Roman Catholic nun who preaches in three different non-Roman Catholic countries, including Japan, which also had a church built and named after her. She is also skilled in decoding magical texts and at the start of the Orsola's Rescue arc, she is kidnapped by the the Amakusa Catholics.
* AllLovingHero: Rivals Touma in sheer unselfish kindheartedness.
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Averted. When she's beaten by Agnese Forces, the narration makes it clear she's bruised very badly, with her thighs black and blue with bruises signalling internal bleeding, and bleeding from the mouth.
* TheDitz: She can be a bit of an airhead at times, not paying attention when people tell her directions.
* FishOutOfWater: Has very little knowledge of technology.
* {{Hackette}}: Magical version. Her speciality is decoding the magical texts of grimoires.
* HeKnowsTooMuch: Her attempts to decode and destroy the Book of Law is what nearly got her killed, since the Roman Catholic Church didn't want to risk the loss of their power if the Book's angelic spells could be deciphered.
* InformedAbility: Her skill at converting people. That said, the few times she's been able to give a [[PatrickStewartSpeech speech]] she's proven quite eloquent, so it's not a stretch to assume she could give sermon capable of swaying the uninitiated or other faiths.
* NaughtyNuns: Tries to kiss Touma while he's putting a cross-necklace on her. Later, she assumes Touma and Index would like to be alone in their hotel room, and starts blushing and saying that her coming with them would not be appropriate.
* OddFriendship: She gets along quite well with Sherry Cromwell.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: She passed Necessarius' Special Admissions Test, which several other people, even elite fighters like Itsuwa, find to be Hell.
* PatrickStewartSpeech: As she's being beaten by the Agnese Forces and Agnese [[KickTheDog rubs in how they tricked Touma and Necessarius into helping them]], Orsola launches into a weak speech about how she could never hate them for what they did in that case, and that they were far better than the Roman Catholic Church in that they were earnest in wanting to help her, while Agnese and the others could only act on doubt (including herself in that since she doubted the sincerity of the Amakusas in helping her).
* ShaggyDogStory: Turns out she was never able to decode the Book of Law all along and thus was being hunted for nothing.
* ShowerOfAwkward: Touma [[http://img130.imageshack.us/img130/6089/to20aru20majutsu20no20i.jpg walks in on her in the shower]] during their stay in Italy.
* TakeAThirdOption: Her answer to Sasha's question about whether or not Necessarius would side with the Roman Catholics or Academy City in the upcoming war. Rather than choosing a side, they should help anyone in need and work together to put an end to the upcoming war, because that's exactly what a certain powerless boy would do.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: Not that she dies, but she shows no hatred to the Agnese Forces even after they nearly killed her. It also helps that ultimately they, too, are victims of their higher-ups' machinations.
* TurnTheOtherCheek: Never holds grudges ''period'' and can forgive ''anybody'', even the people who torture and tried to kill her.
* VerbalTic: Uses "de gozaimasu" in virtually every sentence.

[[folder:Agnese Sanctis]]
!!Agnese Sanctis

* CuteAndPsycho: [[spoiler:InnocentFanserviceGirl --> psycho religious nut. It's the second time Creator/RieKugimiya played a character with this trait.]]
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: Which is funny considering she's a nun and she gets offended if someone looks up her skirt.
* FieryRedhead: A redhead and rather spirited.
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:She was an orphaned StreetUrchin before the Church saved her, hence her borderline psychotic devotion to it.]]
* GoGoEnslavement: Was forced to wear a rather {{Stripperific}} dress while being held prisoner by Biagio.
* GratuitousItalian: The chant for her Lotus Wand.
-->"Tutto paragone. Il quinto dei elementi. Ordina la canna che mostra pace ed ordina. Prima. Segua la legge di Dio ed una croce. Due Cose diverse sono connesse."
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Makes a big improvement following Volume 11.]]
* HiddenHeartOfGold: [[spoiler:She actually cares for her forces, specifically Lucia and Angelene.]]
* HolierThanThou[=/=]KnightTemplar[=/=]NunTooHoly: [[spoiler:Barely considered non-Catholics human. With her, ironically, now under Necessarius' protection, she undergoes a large improvement.]]
* MacGuffinSuperPerson: [[spoiler:She is needed by Biagio to activate the "Rosario of the Time Limit" spell.]]
* MagicWand: Her lotus staff lets her strike at any target through the ether.
* TheNapoleon: It's kind of obvious, just look at the size of her platform shoes.
* NaughtyNuns: First of all, during the Orsola's Rescue arc, Touma wakes up to find her only in her underwear sleeping on top of him. See also PowerPerversionPotential below.
* PowerPerversionPotential: In Volume 18, she abuses her wand's ability to attack through the ether by... hitting a Knight of England in, uh, [[DoubleEntendre sensitive places]].
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Anieze or Agnese?
* StreetUrchin: [[spoiler:Before the Church saved her.]]
* TortureTechnician: [[spoiler:Subjected Orsola to some torture before Touma saved her.]]
* WarriorMonk: Despite her age and small size.

One of the nuns of the Agnese forces. Her weapon is a giant carriage wheel derived from the execution of Saint Catherine of Alexandria which creates a storm of wooden stakes. She is often seen with Angelene.
* CelibateHero: One of the few nuns in this series who ''actually'' follows their vow of celibacy.
* CuteAndPsycho: [[spoiler:She's not that a bad a person, but pre-HeelFaceTurn, she attacked Touma, a non-Catholic, because he touched her.]]
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:Same as Agnese.]]
* FlechetteStorm: Her wheel explodes on enemies and rains shrapnel on them, then it recovers the lost shrapnel.
* GoGoEnslavement: Was forced to wear a stained-yellow habit that serves as a ShockCollar while being held prisoner by Biagio.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:With the rest of the Agnese Forces after realizing that the Roman Catholic Church plans to use them as scapegoats for the attack of the Adriatic Fleet on Venice.]]

* BraidsOfAction: As seen in the picture.
* CuteClumsyGirl: Which may be why Lucia is overprotective of her.
* GoGoEnslavement: Was forced to wear a stained-yellow habit that serves as a ShockCollar while being held prisoner by Biagio.
* MoneyToThrowAway: Her WeaponOfChoice.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace[=/=]NunTooHoly: She's flips Lucia's skirt like how Saten flips Uiharu's.
* OnlyOneName: If she has a last name, it hasn't been revealed.
* ParentalAbandonment[=/=]StreetUrchin: Her parents took her on a trip to Milan, Italy and left her behind.
* SweetTooth: Really likes sweet things.
* TokenMiniMoe: She's even smaller than Index.
* WarriorMonk: Despite her small size and age.

[[folder:Lidvia Lorenzetti]]
!!Lidvia Lorenzetti
!!!'''The Mardi Gras'''

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ReiSakuma (Japanese), Rachel Robinson (English)

A Roman Catholic radical who hired Oriana and stole the "Croce di Pietro" in a bid to use its power to force all of Academy City into converting to Roman Catholicism.
* ArcVillain: Of the Daihaseisai arc.
* DefenestrateAndBerate: [[spoiler:Ends up being captured by Laura -- in her own private jet, no less -- while trying to make her escape after Oriana's failure.]]
* DidntSeeThatComing: [[spoiler:Her master plan would have worked... if it weren't for Academy City's fireworks celebration.]]
* HolierThanThou[=/=]KnightTemplar[=/=]NunTooHoly: As usual in the Roman Catholic Church, she sees herself as above non-believers.
* KansasCityShuffle: [[spoiler:Hiring Oriana to invade Adademy City was just a distraction so she could use the real spell far away from the city with no one to stop her.]]
* SoulSavingCrusader: Her ultimate goal, no matter who she has to hurt to do it.
* VillainousBreakdown: Whenever her plans apparently start to fall apart, she goes on psychotic breakdowns... which she welcomes with much relish, because she likes it if she can defy logical impossibilities.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: She's a ''bit'' crazy, but she's also out to save all the innocent lives she can.

[[folder:Biagio Busoni]]
!!Biagio Busoni

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NorioWakamoto (Japanese), Barry Yandell (English)

A ruthless bishop who sees the glory of the Roman Catholic Church as everything, willing to sacrifice the lives of anyone in order to preserve its name.
* AlliterativeName: '''B'''iagio '''B'''usoni
* ArcVillain: Of the Queen of the Adriatic Sea arc.
* CreepyCoolCrosses: He can make them enlarge to the size of cars and fall on his enemies.
* GravityMaster: Limited to making his opponents heavier so they cannot move.
* HolierThanThou[=/=]KnightTemplar: Thinks being a bishop of the Roman Catholic Church gives him the right to hurt or kill non-believers and "necessary sacrifices".
* LargeHam: Makes very loud, dramatic speeches.
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:Has been controlling Agnese and her fellow orphans since childhood to become his {{Tykebomb}}s.]]
* RuleOfSymbolism: His cross expansion ability is based on the tale of Saint Margaret the Virgin, who allegedly killed a dragon who swallowed her whole by praying for her cross to expand and tear it apart from the inside out. His gravity-increasing ability is based on tales of Saint Lucia and Christopher bearing the weight of the cross.

[[folder:Vento of the Front]]
!!Vento of the Front
!!![[ArchangelUriel The Flame of God]]

->"''It's okay to not even be tense, for there's even no luxury of feeling the pain.''"

--> Voiced by: Creator/AkikoHiramatsu (JP), Creator/KaraEdwards (EN)

The first member of God's Right Seat to directly attack the protagonists. Blessed with "God's Flame", her powers are drawn from the ArchangelUriel. Vento utilizes a hammer capable of [[BlowYouAway manipulating the air into devastating projectiles]].
* ABNegative: She has the rare blood-type B RH Negative. [[spoiler:This was what led to the death of her brother, since after they were both injured and needed an emergency transfusion he requested that [[HeroicSacrifice his blood go to her]].]]
* AnIcePerson: [[spoiler:After gaining control over the rebuilt Adriatic Fleet.]]
* BlowYouAway: Has power over wind, most notably in her wind hammer.
* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler:Twice. The first was when Touma destroyed her first tongue-cross, removing her God's Divine Punishment. The second was when Fiamma ripped out her second tongue-cross, removing her ability to control the Adriatic Fleet.]]
* CodeName: Vento is a code name and is linked to wind.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Vento wears predominately yellow.
* CreepyCoolCrosses: A particularly {{Squick}}y example: It's on a length of chain bolted to her tongue.
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler:The failure of science to save her brother left her bitter and vengeful.]]
%%* DarkActionGirl
* DiscardAndDraw: [[spoiler:After the cross that gave her the power of Divine Punishment is destroyed, she replaces it with one made of ice that lets her control the rebuilt Queen of the Adriatic. It allows her to summon pieces of the fleet as attacks.]]
* DropTheHammer: It's supposedly designed to resemble the ones that nailed UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}} to the cross. If it is destroyed or lost, she can conjure up a new one.
* EquivalentExchange: A person must give up his or her ability to cast regular spells to gain the incredible power of God's Right Seat.
* FreudianExcuse: Her hatred of Science stems from [[spoiler:an accident at a theme park where she and her younger brother were injured on a roller-coaster, one that was supposed to have the best safety features. Because of her family's rare blood type, when she and her brother needed a transfusion, there was only enough for one of them and her brother wanted her to live...]]
* LargeHam: Creator/AkikoHiramatsu's performance definitely brings her character close.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Teams up with Touma, Lessar, and Elizalina against Fiamma of the Right and defends Sasha.]]
* HypocriticalHumor: Volume 20.
--> '''Vento''': And what's with your clothes? If you're going to be in hiding, shouldn't you wear something that doesn't stand out quite so much?
--> '''[[spoiler:Sasha]]''': I do not think that someone wearing entirely yellow has any right to say anything about my clothes.
* HolyHandGrenade: God's Divine Punishment.
** AchillesHeel: [[spoiler: God's Divine Punishment has no effect on people who are unaware of her (which is why Accelerator, Index, and Mikoto were spared; Kuroko was spared even though she was watching her on the news because she wasn't paying attention) and people who feel no hate, like Amata Kihara: a homicidal maniac who believes killing people is the same as pulling out weeds.]]
** RuleOfSymbolism: God's Divine Punishment is based on the premise that no one should bear any hatred towards God - if so, punishment will apply.
** SuperpowerLottery: The function of God's Divine Punishment is to force anyone who bears '''any''' ill will towards her to lose consciousness. It also has an unlimited area of effect - people watching news broadcasts on the opposite side of the world were also affected.
* IAmNotLeftHanded: She makes it look like [[spoiler:her hammer is the source of her [[BlowYouAway wind manipulation]], but it really comes from her cross.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Invoked. If she acts like a dick, people will feel hostile towards her. If they bear hostility towards her, then Divine Punishment will fall upon them.
* ManiacTongue: Just look at that picture on the right.
* ObviouslyEvil: [[InvokedTrope Completely intentional on her part]], since her God's Divine Punishment causes people who feel hostile towards her to be deprived of oxygen.
* OneManArmy: [[spoiler:By making them feel hostile toward her, God's Divine Punishment took out most of Academy City's security instantly.]]
* SheCleansUpNicely: The concept art indicates that behind all those metal piercings she uses to intentionally disfigure herself, she's described as having a "virgin-like" face.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Though it's not as egregious as most other examples given that there's only four members.
** Sort of justified, it's the Roman Catholic Church, after all.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Vent or Vento?
%%* StormingTheCastle: [[spoiler:Her objective.]]
* SurvivorGuilt: She's upset that [[spoiler:her brother died instead of her.]]
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: She saves [[spoiler:Index and Accelerator]] from a missile fired by [[spoiler:Amata Kihara]]... because she wants to be the one to kill [[spoiler:Index.]]
* WouldHurtAChild: Threatens to attack several families to goad Touma.

[[folder:Terra of the Left]]
!!Terra of the Left
!!![[ArchangelRaphael The Medicine of God]]

->"''I wish for salvation, and I wish to bring salvation to others.''"

--> Voiced by: Creator/HochuOtsuka (JP), George Manley (EN)

The second member of God's Right Seat to come into conflict with the protagonists, Terra is an elderly man who dresses in green. Blessed with "God's Medicine", his powers are drawn from the ArchangelRaphael. Terra's special ability is to manipulate the "hierarchies" of everything around him.
* AndThereWasMuchRejoicing: [[spoiler:Shorty after Acqua kills Terra, the Pope happens upon the scene. The first thing out of the Pope's mouth? "Don't damage the architecture like that."]]
* AntagonistAbilities: DamageReduction as he can alter his precedence making his opponents attacks useless.
* AxCrazy: He hates and wants to kill all non-Catholics.
* CodeName: Terra is a code name and is linked to earth.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Terra is associated with green.
* DishingOutDirt: Though he's only seen using it to make his flour blade.
* EquivalentExchange: A person must give up his or her ability to cast regular spells to gain the incredible power of God's Right Seat.
* EvilOldFolks: Judging by appearances he's the oldest member of God's Right Seat, and without question the most despicable.
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: [[spoiler:Acqua kills him by literally hitting him so hard and fast that all that's left of his body are his head, upper torso, and right arm. Acqua then waits for Terra to bleed to death, who can neither speak nor breathe.]]
* FromACertainPointOfView: He claims to want salvation for all humans, and he does. He just believes non-Catholics aren't human in the first place.
* HighCollarOfDoom: As seen in the picture.
* HolyHandGrenade: The Execution of Light, the ability to alter the "precedence" of objects over one another.
** AbsurdlySharpBlade: Justified. Raising the precedence of his blade of flour above whatever he wants to cut means it ''will'' be cut without fail.
** AchillesHeel: [[spoiler:Execution of Light can only manipulate the precedence of one type of object at a time, and even then he has to consciously activate it. At one point, Touma is able to take advantage of this and block his flour blade by hiding a pad under his shirt. It also does nothing to save him from Acqua's fatal surprise attack since it happened too fast for him to comprehend.]]
** NoSell: As a result of raising his own precedence above whatever is attacking him. [[spoiler:Unfortunately for him, he actually has to be aware of the attack coming at him in order to raise his precedence. Acqua kills him by striking him without warning with an attack that tears him in half]].
** RuleOfSymbolism: The Execution of Light works on the premise that in order for the Son of God to have been killed by man, he must have lowered his own precedence in order to be vulnerable to weaponry.
** SuperpowerLottery: His precedence-altering ability gives him an almost flawless defense and a perfect attack.
** WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: His power is... to change precedence? How is that any use?
*** HeartIsAnAwesomePower: How about elevating your own precedence so you're invulnerable to damage, or raising the precedence of grains of flour until you can use them as an infinitely sharp guillotine?
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Uses blades made from ''flour''.
** WhipSword: One of his favorite flour constructs.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's incredibly callous and experimented with his powers on civilians.
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:Killed by Acqua of the Back after the latter found out about how he tested his powers.]]
* KilledMidSentence: [[spoiler:He's not killed (he used his ability to survive), but he's cut off by an Academy City bombing raid just before he could tell Touma how Imagine Breaker truly works.]]
* KnightTemplar: Even more so than the other members of God's Right Seat: He regularly used his power on non-Catholic tourists.
* ObviouslyEvil: One look at [[http://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/images/d/d9/Index_v14_007.jpg this guy]] is all you need to know. Yeesh.
* NotAfraidToDie: He's nonchalant about his possible death, because he's completely confident that he will go to Heaven. [[spoiler:He loses this smugness when Acqua tells him he will go to Hell as he's dying.]]
* RightForTheWrongReasons: He deduced that Touma had amnesia because he wasn't using Imagine Breaker's full potential. However, Touma did not know of Imagine Breaker's full potential before he lost his memories.
* SlasherSmile: Just look at the picture above.
* SquishyWizard: Is over reliant on his powers. He doesn't know how to fight and is physically weak.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Of God's Right Seat. Acqua is [[NobleDemon honorable]] and not really a villain deep down, Vento has a FreudianExcuse that fuels her crueler actions, and even Fiamma [[WellIntentionedExtremist has a noble goal beyond his dark methods]]. Terra...just seems to want to kill non-Catholics for no real reason or justification [[GuiltFreeExterminationWar aside from the fact they aren't Catholic, so it's okay]].
* UnskilledButStrong: Who needs technique when you can literally [[AbsurdlySharpBlade cut through anything]] and NoSell everything thrown at you? [[spoiler:Probably when your fellow God's Right Seat with just as broken a power ''and'' actual skill [[KarmicDeath decides to kill you after finding out what you've been doing with those powers]]...]]
* WouldHitAGirl[=/=]WouldHurtAChild: He tested his powers by [[spoiler: slaughtering a group of non-Christian tourists, even the children.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: As seen in the picture. Justified since earth-aligned mages tend to color their hair green to improve their connection with the earth.

!!![=Flere210=]: ''[[BigDamnHeroes One Who Changes the Reason for Tears]]''

->"''Pick any unreasonable fight with me and I will shorten your life span.''"

--> Voiced By: Creator/HirokiTochi (JP), Andrew Chandler (EN)

The third member of God's Right Seat. Blessed with "God's Power", Acqua's powers are drawn from the ArchangelGabriel, giving him [[MakingASplash power over water]] and [[{{Lunacy}} dominion over the moon]]. He is also a Saint. He is the only truly good and noble among the four, and a certified badass.
* AchillesHeel: [[spoiler:Though Acqua gains '''tremendous''' power by right of being both a member of God's Right Seat and a Saint simultaneously, it also makes him twice as vulnerable to techniques developed to combat either one of them.]]
* BadassBoast:
** See his quote above.
** He has another when confronting [[spoiler:the Knight Leader.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''The Knight Leader]]:''' Have you decided whether you will run or die?
--> '''Acqua:''' No, my two options are to cut you down or to not cut you down.
* {{BFS}}: His sword, Ascalon, is roughly 3.5 meters long and weighs 441 pounds! [[spoiler: When he's BroughtDownToNormal, he's forced to abandon Ascalon because he's no longer strong enough to pick it up.]]
** HiddenWeapons[=/=]SwissArmyWeapon: Acqua's BFS, Ascalon was created by an artist based on the sword St. George used to slay the dragon. Its blade includes the attributes of an ax, razor, churchkey spike, fretsaw wire, saw, hook spike, and a close combat spike in the same weapon. Furthermore, the hilt can be removed to reveal a hidden blade that can transform into a mace and includes a hidden dart launcher.
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:When he saved Villian from execution. Those who weren't sent flying or knocked unconscious had only one thing to say: "[[HesBack He's Back]]?"]] Pretty much a given with a name like "One who changes the reason of tears".
* BloodKnight: He loves a good fight.
* BroughtDownToBadass: After the events of Volume 16, [[spoiler:he loses all the stored power in Divine Mother's Mercy to save himself from an explosion, reducing his power to the level of a regular Saint, which is why he nearly lost against Knight Leader empowered by Curtana Original.]]
* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler:Loses his powers as both a Saint and a member of God's Right Seat after he used them to bring frickin' Archangel Gabriel down to half strength.]]
* CannotSpitItOut: Possibly towards [[spoiler:Princess Villian.]] After the events of the [[spoiler:English Civil War]], he quickly disappeared asking Knight Leader to deliver a message to [[spoiler:Villian]]. Knight Leader decided to add some words to it and made it seem like its a marriage proposal. While he did this to troll Acqua, he noted that Acqua had to have known how he would have passed it on.
* CarryABigStick: In Volume 16 he used a steel mace that was '''five meters long'''!
* CodeName: [=Flere210=] is his magic name. Acqua is also a code name and is linked to water.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Acqua is associated with blue.
* ConfusionFu: One of his tactics is to stand on a layer of water that lets him slide around chaotically and make it hard for his opponent to get a fix on him.
* EquivalentExchange: A person must give up his or her ability to cast regular spells to gain the incredible power of God's Right Seat. However, since Divine Mother's Mercy removes costs and secondary conditions from spells, in the end he didn't have to give up anything.
* FastballSpecial: With Touma.
* FoeTossingCharge: When he [[spoiler:rescues Princess Villian from execution at the hands of the Knight Leader]], he makes his entrance by sending a few dozen people flying.
%%** DynamicEntry
%%* HeelFaceTurn
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:He loses the will to live after fighting Archangel Gabriel, but Shiage Hamazura snaps him out of it.]]
* HeroicRROD: [[spoiler:There's a reason why the body has biological limiters: to prevent this kind of thing from happening. Thanks to Divine Mother's Mercy removing them, if he pushes himself too hard or gathers too much energy he will burn himself out, but because he's a Saint his limit is much higher than pretty much any other human, so it only becomes an issue if he's fighting an Angel-class being.]]
* HesBack: At the end of Volume 17.
%%* HiddenHeartOfGold
* HolyHandGrenade: Divine Mother's Mercy, described as bestowing a divine abeyance for sins that would otherwise never be forgiven. In other words, [[RuleOfSymbolism Acqua can forgive a person's sins and grant them salvation]].
** BoringButPractical: Divine Mother's Mercy lets him use both magic and divine-class magic while ignoring costs and secondary conditions.
** BornWinner: He's a Saint.
** NoSell: He can nullify another person's "sin of killing" to nullify any act of killing directed towards someone ([[NighInvulnerable namely himself]]), and he can just flat out ignore any magic which works via the principle of divine punishment, since he has no sin to be punished for in the first place.
** RuleOfSymbolism: Divine Mother's Mercy works on the premise that the Virgin Mother of the Son of God was born sinless, allowing Acqua to dilute the Original Sin's hold on him to as little as possible, rendering him invulnerable to divine punishment, as well as unleashing his full potential as a sinless human with the body of a Saint.
** SuperSpeed[=/=]SuperStrength[=/=]SuperToughness[=/=]UninhibitedMusclePower: Thanks to Divine Mother's Mercy, his natural biological limiters are removed. This is before you take into account his [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower Saint]] attributes.
* HonorBeforeReason: Sends to both the Angelican Church and Academy City higher ups a letter stating that he's coming to Academy City to kill Touma, and that if they want to stop him, they should start making preparations. When attacked by Academy City's armored forces, he deliberately held back and made certain that there really was no one inside each unit before destroying it.
* ImpossiblyCoolWeapon: [[http://images.wikia.com/to-aru-majutsu-no-index/images/f/f0/Acqua.jpg Ascalon]].
* IShallTauntYou: [[spoiler:To Terra, as he watches him die gruesomely. He calmly tells Terra God would never want a person such as him, and the only suitable place for Terra is Hell. His last words to Terra are to ask God for the details on Judgment Day.]]
* KnightErrant: Calls himself a mercenary and is not officially aligned with any major power. He used this as an excuse to travel to battlefield after battlefield helping people no matter where he went and never asked for anything in exchange. In addition, he would teach people how to better themselves, causing the people to call him a sage. His list of accomplishments is so long that it would take all day to read out loud.
* KnightInShiningArmor: [[spoiler:For Princess Villian.]]
* KungFuJesus: He's a Saint, meaning he has a body similar to that of the Son of God; can use spells that allow him to take on attributes of the Virgin Mary, who gave birth to the Son of God; and as a member of God's Right Seat he's aligned with Archangel Gabriel, who announced the birth of the Son of God. On top of that, he uses the spell that gives him attributes of the Virgin Mary to make his own sins null and void; he is a completely sinless human.
* {{Lunacy}}: His association with Gabriel lets him to use the moon to enhance his attacks, both physical and magical, in various ways.
* MagicKnight: Either with spells or his sword, he can kick your ass.
* MakingASplash: The greatest user of water magic on the planet, due to his alignment with Archangel Gabriel.
* MartialPacifist: He won't kill with abandon, but if you directly oppose him, especially if you do it after he's '''warned you not to''', you're in for a world of hurt.
* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: At the end of Volume 16, [[spoiler:everyone assumes Acqua's dead since they NeverFoundTheBody, which is reasonable considering he was at the hypo-center of and the catalyst for a massive explosion. Guess who shows up the very next volume?]]
* NiceGuy: He's actually very nice, especially when compared to the other members of God's Right Seat.
* NervesOfSteel: You'll be lucky to see this guy ''flinch''.
* NeverHurtAnInnocent: As [[spoiler:Terra]] learned the hard way.
* NotSoDifferent: [[spoiler:Villian]] notes that he's similar yet different than Touma; Both fight for the sake of others and are not officially aligned with any faction, making them mercenaries. The difference between the two is that while Acqua willingly seeks danger and will not be swayed by his beliefs, Touma needs to get dragged into things and will look at the situation as a whole, choosing an option that he feels is the right thing to do.
%%* OddFriendship: With [[spoiler: Shiage]] in Volume 21.
* OneManArmy: He's the most powerful member of God's Right Seat outside of [[GodModeSue Fiamma]] himself; that position is not to be underestimated.
** CurbStompBattle[=/=]NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Most of Volume 16 consisted of him effortlessly steamrolling over everything in his way.
** HeroKiller[=/=]ImplacableMan[=/=]TheJuggernaut: First he effortlessly '''destroys''' Itsuwa and Touma, then the Amakusa Catholics prepare specifically to combat him and his abilities, and basically just manage to stall Acqua before getting wiped out. Then after ''that'' it's '''Kanzaki''' who Acqua uses as his personal punching bag. This all happens in a single volume! When this guy gets going, you're going to need a minor miracle to stop him before he completes his objective.
** LightningBruiser: Not only can a single blow from him cause buildings to collapse on themselves, he can also fight at supersonic speeds and NoSell pretty much anything you throw at him.
** PersonOfMassDestruction: As the member of God's Right Seat aligned with Gabriel, The Power of God, Acqua has access to the same type of power as that which destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.
** SuperpowerLottery: On top of being a member of God's Right Seat with access to the genuine Divine Mother's Mercy ritual, he's also a [[KungFuJesus Saint]].
* PayEvilUntoEvil: [[spoiler:Acqua kills Terra of the Left when he learns Terra was "improving" his lethal powers by using them on non-Catholics (including children), whom Terra didn't even consider to be human in the first place.]]
* PretentiousLatinMotto: "The one who changes the reason of tears".
* RescueRomance[=/=]ShipTease: [[spoiler:With [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Princess]] [[PluckyGirl Villian]]. [[ShipperOnDeck The Knight Leader]] is more than happy to help in this regard.]]
* TheRival[=/=]VitriolicBestBuds[=/=]WorthyOpponent: [[spoiler:With the Knight Leader.]] The duo are not above trading jabs and trash talking one another.
* RunningGag: Tends to make calm, overly long speeches, and often gets interupted before he finishes.
* SadisticChoice: In Volume 16, [[spoiler: he easily defeats Touma and Itsuwa, then leaves, giving Touma a day to either chop off his right arm or die. Justified because since it would have been the easiest way for him to complete his mission with minimal bloodshed, and Academy City had the medical science to give Touma a cybernetic replacement. Touma of course decides to TakeAThirdOption by defeating him in their rematch.]]
* SpannerInTheWorks: Fiamma describes him as that when [[spoiler: he weakens Archangel Gabriel by draining its Telesma.]]
* TheStoic
** NotSoStoic: [[spoiler:Even he couldn't stay stoic when he's about to meet up with Princess Villian... after he said some embarrassing things in front of her.]]
* StrongAndSkilled: He not only wields the power of Archangel Gabriel, but he also retains his power as a Saint and all his fighting skill as a mercenary before becoming a member of God's Right Seat. As a result, he's the most dangerous member short of Fiamma himself, whose own power is just ''that'' broken despite his lack of skill.
* TokenGoodTeammate: He was the only member of God's Right Seat who wasn't a corrupt asshole.
* WarriorPoet: He's incredibly insightful, and even mocks [[spoiler:the Knight Leader]]'s reasoning for [[spoiler:supporting a coup d'etat]] and his attempts to justify them to Acqua as being superfluous.
* WildCard: [[spoiler:He follows his own code to the very end, putting him at odds with Touma when he was with God's Right Seat and against Fiamma during World War 3, even going so far as to deliberately abandon his powers during a battle with [[ArchangelGabriel the very Archangel]] he was aligned with.]]
* WouldHitAGirl: Poor [[spoiler:Kanzaki]] and [[spoiler:Itsuwa.]]
* YinYangBomb: Kanzaki states in Volume 16 that [[spoiler:the existences of Saint and member of God's Right Seat were mutually incompatible, and being both was impossible to achieve. [[BoringButPractical Divine Mother's Mercy solves this]].]]

[[folder:Fiamma of the Right]]
!!Fiamma of the Right
!!![[ArchangelMichael The Likeness of God]]

->''"To handle an overwhelming power, an overwhelming knowledge is needed."''

Aligned with ArchangelMichael and blessed with "God's Likeness", Fiamma of the Right is the leader of God's Right Seat and the true power behind the Roman Catholic Church. A manipulative and devious individual, his true objectives are unknown, but they require Index's vast knowledge and Touma's Imagine Breaker to succeed. To obtain them, he engineers a direct clash between God's Right Seat and Academy City, and then WorldWarIII.
* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: [[spoiler:Vento]] comments in the epilogue of Volume 16 that "everyone's goal is to kill that bastard [Fiamma]".
* AbstractApotheosis: At the beginning of Volume 22, [[spoiler:he briefly achieved the goal of every member of God's Right Seat: the state of "La Persona Superiore a Dio" in Italian. In English, it translated to: "The One Above God".]]
* AlwaysABiggerFish: [[spoiler:He's the strongest villain faced so far, who could win just by waving his right hand. The bigger fish? Whatever tried to come out of Touma's shoulder after his arm was cut off and, surprisingly enough, Crowley, who ambushed the poor guy after his defeat.]]
* AnArmAndALeg: [[spoiler:At the end of Volume 22, Aleister Crowley blew his right arm off with a surprise attack from the Blasting Rod.]]
* AntagonistAbilities: AlwaysAccurateAttack, VillainTeleportation, UnblockableAttack. See below for more details.
* BadassBoast: To [[spoiler:Carissa]], at the end of Volume 18.
-->'''[[spoiler:Carissa]]:''' ''Who exactly are you...?''
-->'''Fiamma:''' ''I am Fiamma of the Right. If that isnít enough of a hint for you, then you really need to rebuild your intelligence agency from the ground up.''
** He also had this in Volume 22.
--> '''Fiamma, [[spoiler:[[{{Irony}} just before all his plans crash and burn]]''']]: I'm about to save this world. Therefore, I have no more use for you. Feel the glory, meatbag. Your value as a human being, obediently let me have it.
* BigBad: From Volume 11 to Volume 22, but he doesn't take center stage until [[spoiler:the end of Volume 18.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:In New Testament Vol. 4, he arrives with Ollerus to save Touma from One-Eyed Othinus.]]
* BreakThemByTalking: To [[spoiler:Touma]] in Volume 20 -- calling out [[spoiler:Touma]] out on his hypocrisy on saving others when he deceived the person he wanted to protect the most.
* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler:Subverted. Aleister cutting off his right arm in Volume 22 only rendered the Holy Right unstable rather than removing it entirely.]]
* TheChessmaster: One of the three greatest in the series, along with Laura and Aleister. [[spoiler:The Third World War between Academy City and Russia was instigated by him, so he could draw out the people necessary for his plans.]]
** BatmanGambit: He wanted England in some type of turmoil so he could [[spoiler:get his hands on the remote to control Index]] without anyone noticing. For that purpose, he [[spoiler:cultivated France's anger towards England, hoping they would commence open hostilities]]. Cue [[spoiler:the Second Princess of England instigating a coup d'etat]] before that could happen, and [[spoiler:starting her own open hostilities towards France]]. Guess what Fiamma does soon after?
** TheManBehindTheMan: Was an advisor to the current Pope, and uses that influence to control the Vatican.
** ManipulativeBastard: Manipulated the Roman Catholic and Russian Orthodox Churches into doing his bidding.
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: [[spoiler:Fiamma's plan is such that it will only work so long as he '''''absolutely''''' believes it will work. Even the slightest hesitation or doubt on his part, and it fails.]]
* CodeName: Fiamma is a code name and is linked to fire.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Fiamma is associated with red.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: [[spoiler:He later comes to the rescue and saves Touma from One-Eyed Othinus.]]
* {{Determinator}}: You have to be to put as much effort towards your plans as he did, [[spoiler:and after being saved by Touma he became an even bigger one to face off against Aleister.]]
* EquivalentExchange: A person must give up his or her ability to cast regular spells to gain the incredible power of God's Right Seat. [[spoiler:He gets around this by having a brainwashed Index do the spells for him.]]
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Perhaps one of the more major hitches in Fiamma's plans was his largely mistaken belief that HumansAreTheRealMonsters. Several people, connected and not, unite against him as they realize the danger of his intentions.
* EvilCounterpart: To Touma, who even compares their powers and draws attention to their similarities, like how Imagine Breaker is completely useless if there is nothing supernatural in the area and The Holy Right is completely useless if there is no malice in the area. Both use their Right Hands to shatter something that someone worked desperately to obtain, except Touma uses his to solve the problems around him and Fiamma his own personal problems -- selflessness versus selfishness. In their final battle, Touma points out the biggest difference between them: Fiamma observed the world and was disgusted by [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters what he saw]], so he wanted to "save the world" by [[KillAllHumans wiping out the human race]]. Touma observed the world and saw evil people to fight and good people to protect.
* EvilRedhead: He's a redhead who wants to wipe out the human race.
* {{Foil}}: While Touma is an atheist who wants to protect everybody and has a right hand that negates powers, Fiamma is a deeply religious man who wants to kill everybody and has a right hand that gives him any power he wants.
* HandicappedBadass: [[spoiler:Despite losing his right arm, he's still powerful enough to battle One-Eyed Othinus to a draw.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:After Touma defeats him but saves his life, he becomes inspired to try to defeat Aleister Crowley so Crowley will not trample over Touma's dreams of a better world.]]
* HeKnowsTooMuch: [[spoiler:Aleister tries to kill him because he has caught a glimpse of what's being sealed by Touma's Imagine Breaker, which Aleister cannot allow.]]
* HolyHandGrenade: The Holy Right. More specifically, the ability to use any ability, benevolent or destructive, involving the right hand.
** AlwaysAccurateAttack: "The strike that reaches everything when swung" reaches the target without any speed, meaning it cannot be dodged. [[spoiler:It was even able to hit an Academy City KillSat even though Fiamma had no idea where it was! It does have limits, as Touma was able to hide from it for a time.]]
** StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: His Holy Right is directly stated to only be as powerful as it needs to be, meaning that the stronger its target the greater its power.
** BornWinner: He was ''born'' with the Holy Right. Volume 2 of ''New Testament'' even goes so far as to state that, to Fiamma, the power to save the world is as instinctive as walking upright.
** HeartIsAnAwesomePower: So his power is "every ability related to the right hand"? That doesn't sound... '''Holy shit!''' ''Did he just wipe an entire city off the map?!''
** HealingFactor: Vento points out that there is a limit of times Fiamma can use the Holy Right before his Third Arm completely disintegrates in the air, thus leaving him as a powerless human. [[spoiler: Which is one of the reasons he needed Index's spiritual remote control, which allows him to regenerate his Third Arm.]]
** OneHitKill: His specialty.
** ThePowerOfHate: The Holy Right increases in power the greater the malice in the enemy. [[spoiler: This is why he triggered World War III, so he could declare the entire world his enemy and use the malice the war would create in the people to fuel The Holy Right.]]
** PowerLimiter: Because Fiamma is only human, while the Holy Right can replicate any act done with the right hand in Christianity, it can only replicate it at a miniscule fraction of its original power. In addition, the elemental alignment switches among the Angels that occured prior to the series further weakened the power of the Holy Right. However, its almost a moot point because its still powerful enough to utterly curb-stomp almost anyone in the series.
** PowerParasite: [[spoiler: In Volume 22, he severs Touma's right arm, then has The Holy Right assimilate Imagine Breaker, purifying The Holy Right and unlocking its full potential. This allows him to achieve La Persona Superiore a Dio. Unfortunately for him, Touma was able to take Imagine Breaker back.]]
** PowersDoTheFighting: The Holy Right will automatically defend him against any attack, then destroy the attacker, even if he's completely unaware of the attack. [[spoiler: Academy City tries to blast him with a KillSat, which is blocked and destroyed. Unfortunately for Fiamma, this doesn't work against the Blasting Rod.]]
** RuleOfSymbolism: The Holy Right derives its power from the prominence the right hand has in Christian lore, wherein several miracles, rituals, and traditions are performed using the right hand. The Holy Right is capable of replicating the power all of these original acts held.
** StoryBreakerPower: [[spoiler:Touma]] likens Fiamma's power to a jRPG, where besides the commands like "Attack", "Item", "Magic", etc. available to everyone, the Holy Right gives you an additional option: "[[CurbStompBattle You Win]]".
** SuperpowerLottery: Even before [[spoiler:achieving his One Above God status]] in Volume 22, Fiamma was already the fourth most powerful character introduced. The only people above him were [[spoiler:Aiwass, Aleister, and whatever is being sealed inside Touma by his Imagine Breaker. You'll notice Accelerator, including his white-winged form, isn't on that list]]. That's some '''serious''' power.
** SwissArmySuperpower: Since his power lets him do anything that has ever involved a right hand, he can do pretty much anything, especially since this includes feats done by ''Archangels'' with their right hands. The Holy Right does have limits, since it can't copy Touma's right hand, Imagine Breaker.
** UnblockableAttack: "The strike that ends everything it touches" annihilates anything it hits without any destructive force, meaning it cannot be blocked.
** VillainTeleportation: One of the Holy Right's powers is the ability to travel to any place Fiamma wants ''instantly''. Its only limit is that it cannot take him upwards or downwards, only along a horizontal plane.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: He's disappointed in mankind and believes the only way to save them is by cleansing the world of them.
* IShallTauntYou: After the events mentioned in BatmanGambit, Fiamma not only [[spoiler:gets the remote to control Index's Johann's Pen Mode]], he also manages to [[spoiler:capture Index herself]]. As a thank you to [[spoiler:Carissa]] for the roll she played, he stops by to tell her just how useless her actions truly were.
* KillAllHumans: See HumansAreTheRealMonsters.
* LonelyAtTheTop: [[spoiler:Despite achieving the status ''The One Above God'', Fiamma is described in Volume 22 as "a lonely man who had achieved nothing".]]
* MacGuffin: He needed both Touma's Imagine Breaker and [[spoiler:the remote that control's Index's Johann's Pen Mode]] for his plans to come to fruition.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: He can manifest his power in the form of a third arm, a malformed birdís talon sprouting from his right shoulder.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:In New Testament Vol. 8, he and Ollerus tried to turn Othinus into a fairy because it would power her down from being a god, only for the attempt to rid Othinus of her 50/50 restriction and make her a perfect magic god.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: Is a long-time adviser to the current Pope, despite looking like he's in his twenties at most.
* OminousFloatingCastle: [[spoiler:The StarOfBethlehem.]]
* OneManArmy: The most blatant example in the series, even more so than Accelerator.
** CurbStompBattle: Every fight he's been in can't even be called a "battle".
** GlassCannon: If you land a solid hit he can be knocked out by one punch. Good luck actually landing that hit though...
** PersonOfMassDestruction: His debut consisted of destroying a large potion of [[spoiler:St. Peter's Basilica]] with one attack, and it's implied that, had [[spoiler:the Pope]] not raised a barrier in time, he would have destroyed [[spoiler:all of Vatican City]] and a large portion of [[spoiler:Rome]] as well.
** PhysicalGod: Even before [[spoiler:achieving ''La Persona Superiore a Dio'']], Fiamma was more powerful than ''ArchangelGabriel''.
* PlayingWithFire: He can create a [[FlamingSword Flaming]] {{BFS}} '''[[UpToEleven forty kilometers]]''' in length!
* RedemptionEarnsLife: [[spoiler:He is saved by Ollerus even after he was supposed to die after being ambushed. Coincidentally, it also happens after Touma told him to see the wide world instead of trying to erase everything.]]
* SquishyWizard: Without the Holy Right, Fiamma is no different from a Level 0 Esper.
* SummonMagic: Powerful enough to summon [[spoiler:ArchangelGabriel. He was intending to summon ArchangelMichael, but when Gabriel arrived, he took it in stride and used it instead.]]
* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: [[spoiler:Fiamma's plan is ultimately thwarted not because Touma kicked Fiamma's ass, but because Touma made him doubt whether the plan was really worth it. Since Fiammaís plan required absolute conviction on his part to work, it failed.]]
* {{Telepathy}}: Which he usually uses to communicate with or taunt people from across the world.
* TreacherousAdvisor: To the Pope.
* TheUnfettered: When you [[spoiler:engineer clashes between entire countries and start a world war]] without a moment of hesitation or shred of regret for the sake of your plans, you're this.
* UnskilledButStrong: Like Accelerator, he's at a bit of a loss when he can't just [[OneHitKill one-shot]] his opponents.
* VillainBall: He has a habit of bragging about his awesomeness, [[ExplainingYourPowersToTheEnemy explaining what his Holy Right is doing]], and mocking his opponents. Touma notes that if he just used his powers right away instead of doing all that talking, Fiamma would have beaten him instantly.
* VillainousBreakdown: Loses it when [[spoiler: Acqua weakens Archangel Gabriel]] and again when [[spoiler: he meets "The Invisible Thing".]]
* WeHaveReserves: In his debut scene, he tells the Pope that [[spoiler:as long as he still lived, God's Right Seat could be recreated at any time.]] Which leads to...
** DecapitatedArmy: After [[spoiler:his defeat]] in Volume 22, [[spoiler:God's Right Seat was officially disbanded.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:His StarOfBethlehem plan will apparently save all of humanity, but at the cost of a huge sacrifice.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:The Pope]], at the end of Volume 16.
