!!Keiichi Morisato

[[caption-width:319:Click [[labelnote:here]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kei1_6011.jpg[[/labelnote]] to see Keiichi in the TV Anime]]
->Voiced by: Creator/MasamiKikuchi (JP); Creator/ScottSimpson (EN - OVA), Creator/TonyOliver (EN - Movie, Mini-Goddess), Creator/DrewAaron (EN - TV)

A student of the Nekomi Institute of Technology and a member of the NIT Motor Club. One day Keiichi accidentally dials the Goddess Relief Office. After summoning Belldandy by accident, he ends up wishing for her to be by his side forever. Ever since, the two have been together. Keiichi's pure and innocent personality also puts him in the middle of an unusual love relationship. While he understands his love for Belldandy, he sometimes has a difficult time expressing his feelings.

He is a very skilled mechanic and an exceptional race driver. He is [[spoiler:bestowed the directorship of the Motor Club, which he subsequently passed on to Sora Hasegawa. At the point he was ''supposed'' to have graduated (but turned out to be one class short), he started working at the repair shop Whirlwind owned by the NIT Motor Club's founder, Chihiro Fujimi. He later picked up the one class and actually graduated many chapters later (although we still never actually ''see'' him graduate).]]


* AccidentalPervert: Every once in a while, Keiichi becomes one which can be attributed to either pure accident or somebody who pulls the strings in order to make Belldandy jealous and dishearten her enough to leave Keiichi and go back to Heaven. Most of the time it's played for comedy, as Belldandy trusts Keiichi's loyalty to her. But when it's played seriously, it's played ''dead'' seriously, if Belldandy's jealousy storms are of any indication.
* BadassNormal: During the Lind arc, Keiichi [[spoiler:demonstrated that, thanks to having [[ThePowerOfLove received love]] from [[SupportingHarem multiple goddesses]], he is one of the few mortals capable of supporting an angel. [[UpToEleven And the guy pulls it TWICE.]]]]
** BadassBiker: He's the best racer at Nekomi until Chihiro shows up, especially when riding his bike with Belldandy on the sidecar.
* BiggusDickus: Implied in the TV series. When Mara first showed up and turned Keiichi into a scooter (for kicks) after Belldandy and Urd caught her, they made her give them the demonic password to turn Keiichi back to normal. When Keiichi came back...naked... Belldandy blushed bright red, while Urd just looked down and grinned with an interested "Hmmm....". Given [[FemmeFatale Urd's personality]], it's likely if Keiichi didn't have one of these, she'd have poked fun at him for it.
* BrotherSisterIncest: Played with and ultimately subverted. While under the effects of a botched potion made by Peorth, [[ButtMonkey poor old Keiichi]] has not only his sister Megumi crawling all over him, [[UpToEleven but Skuld and Urd as well...as well as Peorth herself in the anime.]] [[StatusQuoIsGod Naturally, once Bell steps in and nullifies the potion, everybody's back to normal.]]
* BrownEyes
* ButtMonkey: Occasionally, usually whenever something created by Urd, Skuld, Mara, Tamiya, Otaki or Chihiro is involved.
* CantGetAwayWithNuthin: Every time Keiichi has naughty thoughts about Belldandy, someone notices and promptly calls him out on it...if he doesn't do it himself.
* CannotSpitItOut: See ChasteHero below.
* ChasteHero: Has trouble even just saying "I love you" to Belldandy, much to everyone else's consternation. [[spoiler:This is due to Heaven altering Keiichi's mind so that he wouldn't lust after Belldandy to maintain the separation between divine beings and mortals even in the face of the contract that bound Belldandy to him. And Belldandy knew the entire time.]]
* ChastityCouple: With Belldandy.
* ChickMagnet: All the ladies show some interest in him at some point, bar Chihiro. It's not [[{{HaremGenre}} that kind of series]] though.
* CovertPervert
* DeadpanSnarker: As the OnlySaneMan, he has moments where he lets rip. Prevalent in the OVA.
* {{Determinator}}: [[BadassNormal Able to break out of situations where he shouldn't be able to out of sheer will]] and [[ThePowerOfLove love for Belldandy]] (such as when he was [[spoiler: possessed by the Lord of Terror]]). Also implied in one episode that this is how he's such a good racer - that is due to the training he puts himself through.
* FunWithAcronyms: Gives himself the nickname of K-1 (Kei-ichi).
* GenreSavvy: Bordering on [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy dangerous]] levels at times. He nows enough from his experiences with the goddesses to qualify, along with having uncanny cleverness.
-->'''Keiichi:''' So, after this, there are terrifying assassins? And if we don't defeat them one by one, we can't collect the keys?\\
'''Eihwaz:''' ''How did you just say everything?''\\
'''Keiichi:''' That's absurd! I never thought it would be that clichéd.
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Seeing Urd deep-kiss Belldandy (to remove a throat virus) caused Keiichi to [[HeroicBSOD blue screen]].
* GiveGeeksAChance: A motorcycle geek who gets the girl of everyone's dreams; of course, everyone else wonders just how the hell that even happened.
* GuileHero: Whenever he's in a dangerous situation, Keiichi's ability to think on the fly has saved him and the Goddesses multiple times over.
* InformedAbility: Speaks (or at least can understand) English, since he supposedly takes it as his foreign language class in school. Never gotten the chance to show so far though...outside of translations and dubs, obviously.
* InterspeciesRomance: [[RunningGag With Belldandy]].
* MagicContractRomance: [[RuleOfThree With Belldandy]].
* MayflyDecemberRomance: [[OverlyLongGag With Belldandy]].
* MistakenForCheating: Happens to him a lot, either accidentally, via magical mishap or if another woman tries to actively pursue him. Fortunately he only has eyes for Belldandy. ''Unfortunately'', Belldandy's jealousy storms exists.
* NiceGuy: If Keiichi wasn't one of these, there would be no story in the first place. And many girls adore this genuinely NiceGuy, too.
* OnlySaneMan: Ends up having to play straight man to humans, gods and demons alike.
* RidiculouslyAverageGuy: As the result of a mild retcon.
* UnderstandingBoyfriend: He has somewhat gotten used to the many complications that comes packaged with living with Belldandy and her two sisters.
** At least in the manga he says at one point that dealing with all the weirdness [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming is a small price to pay if it means he can be with Belldandy]].
* UnluckyEverydude: Keiichi started out as this, before eventually being developed into more of a NiceGuy. It would be difficult not to become nicer under the constant scrutiny of a divine being, though.
* WeirdnessMagnet: Comes part and parcel with having 3 goddesses living with you...not to mention [[spoiler:having the leaders of both Heaven AND Hell as in-laws by the end of the manga. Jeesh...guy's got it kinda rough]].

!!Belldandy (Angel: Holy Bell)
->Voiced by: Creator/KikukoInoue (JP), Creator/AkemiOkamura (JP - Mini-Goddess eps 1-13), Creator/YumiTouma (JP - Young Belldandy in OVA), Creator/MioShionoiri (JP - Young Belldandy in movie); Creator/JulietCesario (EN - OVA), Creator/BridgetHoffman (EN - Movie, Mini-Goddess), Creator/ChloeThornton (EN - Young Belldandy in Movie), Creator/EileenStevens (EN - TV)

A goddess who ends up contractually bound to Keiichi Morisato after he accidentally dials the Goddess Relief Office. Ever since, Belldandy dwells with Keiichi at the Tariki Hongan Temple in the city of Nekomi, Chiba Prefecture (near Tokyo). She can cancel the contract at any time, but she states Keiichi is a special person in her heart, and that her purpose is to make him happy.

Belldandy is kind, patient, and warm, not only to Keiichi, but to everyone, without exception. She can easily sense other people's emotions, and tries her best to be empathetic to all those around her. However, even though Belldandy tries her best to be as kind as possible, it is revealed that at times, as a result of latent jealousy, she can become very insecure and sad, especially when she is confronted with an implication that involves Keiichi in one way or another. This can sometimes result in power leaks that affect everything within the vicinity, referred to as "[[{{Yandere}} a jealousy storm]]".

Belldandy is licensed as a goddess first-class, unlimited, and as such is highly skilled. Her power is so great, in fact, that she is required to wear a special earring on her left ear which constantly seals the full brunt of her magical strength. Belldandy's angel is Holy Bell; her elemental attribute is wind. Like all angels, Holy Bell augments Belldandy's magical powers when called upon, and like all angels, she also reflects her master's current state.

* AllLovingHeroine
* ApocalypseMaiden: In TheMovie. ''Twice''.
* BadassPacifist
* BashBrothers: When racing with bike and sidecar, Belldandy and Keiichi are this. Their synergy must be seen to be believed. Sadly, this only shows up in the manga.
* BerserkButton: Don't even TRY to screw with her Keiichi.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Seems nice enough, unless you piss her off or threaten Keiichi.
** Don't make her jealous either - if she's in ClingyJealousGirl mode, she subconsciously causes small explosions and freak weather changes.
** Oh and, don't threaten her either. Toshiyuki tried to rape her, and this got him tossed through a wall. With a [[BlowYouAway tornado]].
* BlowYouAway: her elemental affinity is wind.
* BreakTheCutie: In the movie. [[spoiler:She is so traumatized by Celestine's actions that her memory has to be erased.]]
* CannotTellALie: One of the restrictions of being a first class goddess.
** [[spoiler: However, that only means she can't tell direct lies. She CAN lie by dancing around the truth or withholding info...like in the very late manga where it's revealed that she knew about Heaven altering Keiichi's mind so he would not desire Belldandy sexually. This was the path of least resistance when she bound Keiichi in contract, as the Judgement Gate was a considerably riskier alternative that could have meant losing each other forever. All for the sake of being with him.]]
* ChildProdigy: As Welsper found out when they [[spoiler:performed their Doublet ceremony]], she could easily counter anything that he could throw at her when he was trying to prove her lowly compared to him.
* ClingyJealousGirl: She really is kind, compassionate and warm, but very possessive of Keiichi. She won't say or do anything... but just be prepared for magical feedback that can cause anything from minor explosions to freak weather changes, caused by her subconscious mind. She will ''only'' act if you straightforwardly make a move on Keiichi... and [[HolyShitQuotient HOLY SHIT]] will she act.
* CompellingVoice: Even in a world where most magic is based on song, Belldandy stands out for having this. It's so powerful that when performing at a karaoke tournament to support the NTI Motor Club, even '''Mara''' (who had been planning to take advantage of the event by converting the song into a demonic spell) was overcome by the feelings of bliss that ensnared the crowd while she sang. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny So much so that she joined everyone else to sign up for club membership.]]
* DeathGlare: When one threatens Keiichi, she tends to give one. [[spoiler:She can even scare her father with it. And her father's Tyr, the Almighty. Yeah.]]
* DissonantSerenity and TheStoic: Through most situations where another person or even Goddess would be pulling their hair. Even when angered she doesn't betray a sneer.
* DrunkOnMilk: One 12oz/355mL can and she's hammered.
* {{Fauxreigner}}: Most people that meet her think that she is a Westerner, and her mannerisms and customs are Scandinavian; early in the manga, Belldandy does admit that she's mostly familiar with Scandinavian cuisine until she begins to try more endemic dishes. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] due to her being a Norse goddess.
* FingerlessGloves: While in her goddess outfits.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: And some unliving things, as well. See MachineEmpathy below.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Early in the manga when Belldandy and Keiichi first kiss, Keiichi is surprised at the unseemly fact that from nowhere thousands of flowers just sprouted around them; though he thinks nothing of it at the time, [[spoiler:during the Niflheim arc Belldandy uses the same tactic to be able to hide from Hagall and it's later revealed that the flowers are a reaction to the living contract that Belldandy had enacted initially upon Keiichi, rendering him unable to lust for her for years until the contract was dissolved at that very moment.]]
* GoGetterGirl: According to Urd and Skuld, Belldandy just [[ButForMeItWasTuesday collected Goddess licenses as a hobby]] before she met Keiichi; to put things into perspective, she is a Norn who also has the combative ability to have earned a Valkyrie's Silver Wings. This is part of the reason why Skuld never understood why Belldandy [[spoiler:settled for a lowly mortal down at the Earth when she used to be so much more in Heaven]]. Unpredictably, she excels in all earthly activities too.
* HairAntennae: Typically 4-6, but varies wildly in the early manga.
* HairColorDissonance: Belldandy's hair color varies over time, DependingOnTheArtist. Started dark purple in the manga and slowly turned grey and eventually settled with light brown, while [[MulticoloredHair black and white]] are reserved for Heaven flashbacks. In animated adaptations however her hair is usually dirty blonde.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Defines the concept of a pure-hearted person.
** The definitive moment would probably be the Angel Eater arc. [[spoiler:Attempting to turn her evil by replacing her angel with a demon resulted in the demon being turned into an angel, at least until Welsper got ahold of her.]]
* InformedAbility: In addition to being a goddess, she also happens to be an [[WrenchWench engineering student]] at Nekomi Tech, although we hardly ever see her work with machines. Probably due to the fact that between Skuld, Megumi and Chihiro the series already has three [[WrenchWench wrench wenches]], not to mention Keiichi himself and the Auto Club as a whole.
** That said, during one emergency, she was able to upgrade Chihiro's small bike and turn it into a full blown ''superbike'' using parts from nearby crashed or junked vehicles, [[MomentOfAwesome while riding it]].
* TheIngenue: So sincere, naive, and nice that it ''hurts.'' One demon even comments that her niceness is a potent spiritual attack, and there are plenty of examples in the manga where it's been weaponized.
* InnocentBlueEyes: Only in the animated adaptations.
* InsecureLoveInterest: Despite being a goddess, she often asks Keiichi if she's good enough to be with him, usually if she suspects another woman is getting too friendly with him. And he constantly reminds her that she is. [[spoiler:In chapter 285 this is revealed to be partly because Belldandy was aware of Heaven's manipulation of Keiichi's mind when the contract was first made.]]
* InterspeciesRomance: With Keiichi.
* LadyOfWar: She's gentle, graceful, and uses a staff as a weapon. Her angel even uses a bow and arrow.
* LoveBeforeFirstSight: [[spoiler:Belldandy tells Keiichi she has been watching him (as part of her job) most of his life, and was in love with him before they ever met.]]
* LoveYouAndEverybody: Comes part and parcel with being a first class goddess. She is however willing to make an exception for Keiichi in that she will ''always'' choose him over everyone else, which she makes explicit during a later arc:
-->'''Belldandy:''' "If I had to choose between saving the world and saving Keiichi... I would save Keiichi."
* MachineEmpathy: This is how she deal with machines; she talks to them like an understanding friend and fixes their problems. As she stated; "Every last nut and bolt is like a friend to me". This is also the reason why Banpei is so attached to her despite not installed with an emotion program.
* MagicalGirlfriend: The [[Pantheon/{{Love}} Goddess]] of the trope. And rightfully so.
* MagicContractRomance: With Keiichi.
* MarriedToTheJob, ScrewThisImOuttaHere and RebelliousPrincess: All invoked. She used to be this before she met Keiichi (see GoGetterGirl). Now at Tarikihongan Temple, Belldandy is the only resident goddess who doesn't even show hints of doing any research or any intention of continuing her duties in Heaven and has been called out numerous times on this.
* MayflyDecemberRomance: With Keiichi.
* NeverGetsDrunk: She could drink a distillery's worth of booze and not even hiccup. But keep her away from the [[DrunkOnMilk soda]].
* NiceGirl
* NotSoAboveItAll: Before Skuld showed up, Belldandy and Urd fought almost as often as Urd and Skuld would later do. Also, when it comes to racing her competitive streak rivals Keiichi's.
* ParrotExposition: Especially in the anime, she occasionally repeats whatever Keiichi is surprised about to reflect her [[IncorruptiblePurePureness purity]] and [[TheIngenue cluelessness on earthly customs]].
* PhysicalGoddess: Natch.
* PluckyGirl
* ThePollyanna
* PowerLimiter: As with most high-level deities, Belldandy wears power-limiting jewelry...namely a double-clasp earring.
* ShockAndAwe: [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness Early in the manga]] where Belldandy is more [[HotBlooded outwardly emotional]] red lightning orbs are prominent in her magic. Notable victims of Bell's lightning magic includes the Earth Spirit, [[MagicMisfire Keiichi]], Urd, Sayoko and Aoshima on separate occasions. This disappears once Mara is introduced where she started using wind magic instead.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Towards Keiichi.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: It ''should'' be [[Myth/NorseMythology Verþandi]]...and it was in certain translations.
* SpyCatsuit: Her riding leathers for when she's racing, all of which have some form of heart motif.
* TheReliableOne
* TheThreeFacesOfEve: The calm, compassionate, and domestic Belldandy, goddess of the present, represents the wife.
* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: Several characters comment that Belldandy is terrifying when something threatens or demeans her boyfriend. They're not lying.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Despite being a ''[[ButNotTooForeign Norse]]'' Goddess, Belldandy embodies this trope to the fullest: sweet tempered, loving and devoted, gentle touch of inner iron, there's even a picture of her in a kimono on Images Links.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Class A in the OVA while wearing her race queen/pit girl outfit.

!!Urd (Angel: World of Elegance)
[[caption-width:319:Click [[labelnote:here]] http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/4f3cbff2b09b4381dba1a7d8217f4dda.jpg[[/labelnote]] to see Urd in the TV Anime]]
->Voiced by: Creator/YumiTouma (JP); Creator/LanelleMarkgraf (EN - OVA), Creator/MaryElizabethMcGlynn (EN - Movie), Creator/WendeeLee (EN - Mini-Goddess), Creator/ShannonConley (EN - TV)

Belldandy's older half-sister and is the second Goddess to appear to Keiichi. Urd ranks as Goddess second class, management category limited license, similar to her youngest sister Skuld. She is the Yggdrasil System Administrator and Manager. Though she is much more powerful than her sisters, she has not become a first class goddess, [[spoiler: most recently because she chose not to become a first class goddess so that she could continue to protect her sisters]]. Urd shares a common father with her younger sisters, but has a different mother, the [[{{Satan}} Daimakaicho, Hild]]. Because of this, Urd is a hybrid of Goddess and Demon, reflected in the half-white/half-black appearance of her Angel, World of Elegance. Her elemental attribute is fire and lightning.

Urd fancies herself a [[LoveGoddess Goddess of Love]], so she comes to Earth to spur Keiichi onward with love potions and well-meaning (but deceitful) advice. However, as punishment for deserting her post and for using her powers on Earth without authorization, The Almighty banishes her from Heaven until further notice. After being allowed to go back, she decides to stay on Earth instead.

* AbsoluteCleavage: A feature of most of her wardrobe.
* AdaptationDyeJob: Her goddess outfit is dark blue in most manga illustrations and the 1993 OVA, but in the TV anime and the movie it is purple.
* AlchemyIsMagic: To reflect her status as the Norn of the Past, Urd is shown to be a talented potion maker- justified because many cultures in the past began experimenting with alchemy.
* TheAlcoholic: Justified, alcohol is her main source of energy on Earth.
* AntagonisticOffspring: A mild example towards Hild. Deep down, though, Urd does love her.
* BigBreastPride: She's VERY proud of her large chest, to the point of having an "if you've got it, flaunt it" mentality and being occasionally accused of being a hooker. She even goes so far as to tease Skuld about it...never mind that she is physically a kid most of the time.
* BrilliantButLazy: Urd's inherent powers are potentially leagues above those of her sisters and possibly any other deity except The Almighty and Hild, but she prefers to hang out with her siblings to watch over them and have some fun instead.
* BrokenBird: Due to her heritage. See NonhumanHumanoidHybrid, though.
* CannotSpitItOut: Cannot express any feelings of affection for her [[{{Satan}} mother]], in case her soul gets charmed by the devils.
* CannotTellALie: Averted! Part of the reason Urd refuses to become a first class goddess is[[spoiler: she believes that it's important that she retains the ability to tell a lie to protect those she loves]]. Notably, she has such a reputation for lying that even Belldandy can see through her.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Urd's logic on how engines work can be a little bit off; in one of the racing arcs in the manga she believes that [[http://bato.to/read/_/51346/ah-my-goddess_v4_ch30_by_goddess-miyaku-team/10 they are powered by trolls]]. [[spoiler:Turns out TheCuckoolanderWasRight several pages later.]]
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: How Urd likes to deal with people, particularly [[BrattyHalfPint Skuld]] and [[{{Jerkass}} Aoshima]].
* CoolBigSis: Only develops into this in later adaptations and manga chapters, barring the movie where she's much more mature than average.
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: Well, white or silver-haired, but you get the idea.
* DeathGlare: One of the things she gets from her [[{{Satan}} mom]].
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: The one time Urd fully accessed her demonic magic caused...problems.
* FingerlessGloves: One of the accessories she's worn over the years. Later they get swapped out for full-blown OperaGloves.
* {{Foil}}: Urd and Skuld are banes to one another and will spend every waking hour trying to one-up and upset each other in every way possible; they do this so much that it makes Belldandy jealous.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Many characters commented that Urd acted more like a demon than a goddess before her heritage was discovered.
* FountainOfYouth: For one episode, due to Yggdrasil's system malfunction [[spoiler: after the Lord of Terror arc.]]
* GoodBadGirl: She's tried getting Keichi to be more assertive with Belldandy by getting him to have sex with her [[spoiler:even when she has full knowledge of the restrictions imposed to Keiichi towards feeling any lust towards Belldandy; it seemed that she did it in the eventuality that the contract would be broken by doing so, which it didn't until Belldandy lifted it]].
* GoodIsNotSoft: Even when [[spoiler:separated from her demon self, full-Goddess!Urd still strikes Keiichi with a thunderbolt for staring at her during a PantyShot (courtesy of Skuld who stamped a marking on her behind to differentiate Goddess!Urd from Demon!Urd)]]
* GracefulLadiesLikePurple: Her default outfits in the anime are mostly of this color.
* GratuitousForeignLanguage: Can at the very least, say "I love you" in multiple languages.
* HairTriggerTemper: Especially in the early parts of the manga, Urd is very easy to anger. She mellows down in the later volumes though.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: She is very sociable and alcoholic.
* HopelessWithTech: Being a {{foil}} to [[GadgeteerGenius Skuld]] and to reflect her status as the Norn of the Past Urd is this, normally Type 2. She does well with the Yggdrasil system though; she is even the system administrator. It's the mechanical stuff that she has problems with, which stands out more because [[TechnologyPorn sophisticated machinery]] [[AuthorAppeal is a common feature in the series]].
* HotBlooded: Is extremely passionate and fiery in many things she does; Skuld assumes her to be foolish due to this trait of hers.
* [[IAmNotMyFather I Am Not My Mother]]: Though deep down she finds Hild cool, she is seriously against returning to Hell with her or going full demon.
* ImmortalImmaturity: Can be just as bratty as Skuld.
* LadyOfBlackMagic: She has the [[GracefulLadiesLikePurple graceful appearance]], elemental affinities of [[PlayingWithFire fire]] and [[ShockAndAwe lightning]], and an [[GuardianAngel Angel]] named "World of Elegance". However, she doesn't have the composure, instead being headstrong, short-tempered, and bratty.
* LoveGoddess: Or so she fancies herself to be. Almost if not all of her attempts at planning this result in [[HilarityEnsues trouble for whoever she tries helping]], usually poor old Keiichi.
* MidAirBobbing: Prefers to float rather than sitting on furniture.
* MommyIssues: She's fine with her dad, but she's heavily conflicted about her mother, Hild.
* MsFanservice: Provides most of the fanservice in the series with her figure and revealing outfits, and she's fully aware of it.
* MysticalWhiteHair
* NoblewomansLaugh: Can pull this just like her mother.
* NonhumanHumanoidHybrid: Half-demon on her mother's side. Subverted in that there doesn't seem to be any prejudice on either side and most of the angst comes from Urd herself coming to terms with her demon ancestry, though one flashback to Urd's past in volume 30 showed that some lesser unnamed goddesses might have had a problem with it.
* NotSoDifferent: From both Skuld and Hild.
* OnlySaneWoman: [[CharacterDevelopment Surprisingly gets moments of this every now and then]]. Keiichi is still the main one with her around.
* PhysicalGoddess
* PlayingWithFire: She can also cast fire magic, though usually via World of Elegance's aid.
* PrettyFreeloaders: Along with her younger sister Skuld.
* ShipperOnDeck: Actively ships everyone and everything she sees fit, namely Keiichi/Belldandy, Skuld/Sentaro (to some extent) and Banpei/Sigel. Her strained relationship with Troubadour probably took part in it.
* SideEffectsInclude: Though she fancies herself a LoveGoddess, Urd is more given to potions and pharmacology. Unsurprisingly, none of the stuff she concocts works like it's supposed to most of the time and it's even worse when she's not consulted about it.
* ShockAndAwe: This is one of Urd's elemental affinity, so throwing lightning bolts everywhere is her go-to move, usually whenever something ticks her off. Her ultimate move also involves summoning a magic circle conjuring a violent lightning storm.
* TheTease: Rivals Peorth in this department.
* TheThreeFacesOfEve: The flirty, fiery, half-demon Urd, goddess of the past, represents the seductress.
* TricksterMentor: Acts as one to Keiichi when it comes to his love story.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With her youngest sister Skuld. Used to be this with Mara, and still shows shades of it.
* WeaksauceWeakness: As she's part demon, she has a weakness to a genre of music. Depending on the version, it's either Austrian polkas or more often, Japanese enka.

!!Skuld (Angel: Noble Scarlet)
[[caption-width:319:Click [[labelnote:here]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/amganimeskuld.jpg[[/labelnote]] to see Skuld in the TV Anime]]
->Voiced by: Creator/AyaHisakawa (JP); Creator/PamelaWeidner (EN - OVA), Creator/SherryLynn (EN - Movie, Mini Goddess), Creator/KetherDonohue (EN - TV)

The younger sister of Belldandy, and is the third Goddess to appear to Keiichi Morisato. Skuld has a Goddess second class, type one, limited license: a category similar to her eldest sister, Urd. Skuld is one of Yggdrasil's system debuggers. She compensates for her lack of magic power with her innate talent for invention, which is known throughout Heaven. Skuld is an engineering genius, capable of building just about anything out of the most mundane parts under most limited resources. She can compute equations and redesign even the most complex engineering blueprints in no time.

She travels to Earth after Belldandy's proximity to Keiichi started creating an increasing number of bugs in Heaven's supercomputer Yggdrasil. At least that was her official excuse, as she believed Belldandy was living with Keiichi against her will. She tried to convince Belldandy to return to Heaven to resolve the bug problem and at the same time with the ulterior motive of alleviating her loneliness. After realizing that Belldandy's relationship with Keiichi was not going to end any time soon, Skuld decides to stay on Earth and act as Belldandy's unofficial chaperone.

* BadLiar: She's nowhere as experienced as Urd in that respect, so every time she resorts to lying, it comes crushing down on her like a house of cards.
* BerserkButton:
** "Don't treat me like a little kid, ok?"
** Criticizing her inventions also nets the same reaction from her.
* CatSmile: Gives a ''very'' mischievous one towards [[spoiler:the diskette-bound Lord of Terror before she erases him with a magnet.]]
* ClingyJealousGirl: In a sisterly manner towards Belldandy.
* CryCute: Occasionally when she's not blowing off her fuse she resorts to crying instead, most notably during the episode where Urd calls Banpei useless.
* CuteBruiser: By default since she couldn't use her magic [[spoiler:until she fell for Sentaro and it started to develop]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Has her moments in her early appearances (where Urd is frequently acting reckless) and ''Flights of Fancy''.
* DependingOnTheWriter: Skuld's jealousy towards Keiichi and Belldandy's relationship varies every chapter and adaptation; most of the time she butts in from the word go to stop them but it tones down when there are more pressing matters (understandable), when it is her [[CharacterDevelopment focus episode]] or when it [[WhyDidItHAveToBeSnakes involves ghosts]].
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: To much of her chagrin, people treat her like a 12 year old because not only she looks the part but also (unbeknownst to her) she acts the part as well. It doesn't quite matter that she is thousands of years old because she is not in the very least magnanimous about her own situation.
* GadgeteerGenius: To reflect her status as the Norn of the Future. She's turned an advertisement manikin with that just repeats the same sentence over and over into a fully functioning robot with human level intelligence.
* {{Foil}}: To Urd as mentioned in her entry.
* IdiotHair: Only one strand, as oppposed to Belldandy's 4-6.
* {{Hammerspace}}: She can stuff infinite amount of bombs bigger than her fists and remote controllers inside her shirt.
* LittleMissBadass
* MakingASplash: This is her elemental affinity and it shows from her ability to teleport to anywhere with water, though she never used it initially due to her inexperience with magic. Her water magic develops later on in the series.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: She has an habit of doing this by sheer passion, but her crowning achievement in this trope is her defeat and killing of the [[spoiler: [[EldritchAbomination Lord of Terror]] ]] by ''erasing a floppy disk with a magnet''.
* MySisterIsOffLimits: She will fly into a fury if Keiichi gets too cozy with Belldandy, especially in the anime and early on in the manga. Later on in the manga this is toned down as she matures [[spoiler:and as Keiichi and Belldandy finally grow closer]]. It's nearly absent in the 1995 OVA.
* NotSoDifferent: From Urd and Keiichi.
* OvernightAgeUp: For one episode. [[ShesAllGrownUp She was more then a match with Belldandy while it lasted.]] And while she was at it, [[spoiler:she began to develop feelings for Keiichi.]]
* PhysicalGoddess
* PrettyFreeloaders: Along with her eldest sister Urd.
* PubertySuperpower: Starts developing her powers as soon as she learns to love - in other words start maturing and learning to feel for the opposite gender.
* RealityWarper: Give her a pile of junk and she makes a {{HumongousMecha}} out of it in seconds.
* ReedRichardsIsUseless: She probably could revolutionized the world a dozen times over if she didn't keep her talents to her self. This is even lampshaded.
* SoreLoser: After having her robot trapped by Megumi's in the Robot Wars, she detonates her own to make the fight a tie. Later, Belldandy encouraged her to shake hands with Megumi as a sign of friendship...only for poor Megumi get electrocuted by her at the end.
* StuffBlowingUp: On three, everybody! 1, 2, 3: Skuld Bomb Away!
* SweetTooth: Especially ice cream since it's her main energy source.
* TheThreeFacesOfEve: Immature kid sister Skuld, goddess of the future, represents the child.
* TimTaylorTechnology: Most of her inventions.
* {{Tsundere}}: Towards Sentaro in the manga and in ''Flights of Fancy''.
* UnsoundEffect: The very first power she develops makes her able to stamp words on her target. If the power amplifier in Queen Sayoko's arc is of any indication, it can become powerful enough to destroy walls.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With her eldest sister Urd. Whenever she's not antagonizing his relationship with [[MySisterIsOffLimits Belldandy]] she is also this with Keiichi.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Skuld is afraid of ghosts.
* WrenchWench: Can build amazing devices and even robots out of even the most mundane of spare parts. Revealed to be [[spoiler:a form of magic]] late in the manga.

[[folder: Heaven]]

!!Peorth (Angel: Gorgeous Rose)
->Voiced by: Creator/ReiSakuma (JP); Creator/JulietCesario (EN - TV Series), Creator/AnneSherman (EN - Movie)

The fourth goddess of the series (fifth in the TV series where [[spoiler:Lind]] was introduced before her), she enters the story when Keiichi accidentally calls her up one day much like he did Belldandy, and against Keiichi's will—he's GenreSavvy enough by the point she appears to know that another goddess living with him isn't going to end well—stays with him. She is part of the Earth Help Center, and a Goddess First-class, Second Category, Unlimited. For a time, Peorth harbored a deep resentment towards Belldandy because Belldandy had reported the removal of a bug in Yggdrasil as a team effort. Believing Belldandy was pitying her, she held a grudge. During her stay she continually tried to seduce Keiichi in order to seem more of use to him than Belldandy, though she ultimately falls in love with him. However, after the misunderstanding is cleared up, Peorth remarks that she does not hate Belldandy anymore, and in recent appearances the two seem to be on friendly terms once again. Still, Peorth's incessant flirting with Keiichi puts some strains upon this new relationship.

Her magic is based on the element of Earth, mainly associated with roses and vines, as with her own angel, Gorgeous Rose.
* ButtMonkey: Pretty much the victim of Urd's and Skuld's {{zany scheme}}s who isn't Keiichi or Mara.
* [[CastingGag Casting Gag]]/[[ActorAllusion Actor Allusion]]/[[RemakeCameo Remake Cameo]]: In the English dub of ''Flights of Fancy'', at one point Peorth cuddles up to Keiichi in the bath, imitating Belldandy to fool him into thinking his sweetheart wanted to scrub his back. Peorth's impression is spot-on; no wonder, since Juliet Cesario was Bell's dub actress in the 1995 OVA.
* CompositeCharacter: Of aspects of Belldandy and Urd; a seductress like Urd with the responsibilities of the rank of Belldandy.
* FingerlessGloves: Most of the time. Initially, she wore what seemed to be leather work gloves over white OperaGloves.
* GratuitousFrench: In the Dark Horse manga translation, Peorth is extremely fond of peppering her speech with French and antiquated English...at least when she's not angry or apathetic. Even Gorgeous Rose is named La Rose Magnifique in said translation initially.
* GreenThumb: Stands to reason, since earth magic is her domain.
* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: Arguably. In her original introduction in Chapter 66, she even states that she's in charge of fulfilling the carnal/earthly desires and that she's the best at it in her agency. It helps that her initial mission seems to be just "fuck Keiichi Morisato".
* LoveGoddess: Occasionally tries to play this role for Keiichi and Belldandy, if not Keiichi and herself (see ShipperOnDeck below).
* {{Meido}}: Makes anyone who's working under her for special missions wear maid outfits. Poor Chrono.
* MsFanservice: Possibly the most obvious example in the series. Her default "robes" are even more revealing than what Urd wears. Lampshaded by Lind in one instance, during an ESCAPE of all times.
* ObliviousToLove:
** She completely misinterprets Tamiya's interest in her, thinking him gay for Keiichi.
** She also follows the advice of a love novel; this is especially ironic considering she fancies herself a love goddess.
* PetalPower: Peorth's Storm of Roses attack in the anime, though in the manga she uses whole roses instead of just the petals.
* PhysicalGoddess
* TheRival: [[OverlyLongGag With Belldandy]] at first. Then, with both Urd and Skuld for TV rights.
* ShipperOnDeck: Eventually ships Keiichi/Belldandy but initially shipped Keiichi/''herself''.
* ShortHairWithTail
* TheTease
* WellExcuseMePrincess: The tone of the series would have been completely different if it had been Peorth picking up the phone in episode one.
* WhipItGood: Involving the thorny vines she is able to summon.
* WrongGenreSavvy: She attempts to win Keiichi's heart by following the dating methods she read in romance and porn manga. This might work if she was the series' actual love interest (she isn't). During that time she also assumes that she's in a hentai manga. Notably lampshaded by the narrator when she fantasizes having sex with Keiichi after a date.

!! Lind (Angel: Cool Mint and Spear Mint)
->Voiced by: Creator/MikiIto (JP); Creator/CarrieKeranen (EN)

The fifth Goddess to appear in the comic (fourth in the TV series). Lind is a Valkyrie, a member of the battle division of Heaven, also known as the Fighting Wings. Like the Goddesses Belldandy and Peorth, Lind carries a First Class License. However, unlike the other two, Lind's license is classified as "Special Duty, Limited", which denotes her position as a Valkyrie. Her elemental domain is [[AnIcePerson ice]], even though she is able to control fire and lightning beams perfectly.

In an unlikely turn of events, Lind obtained twin angels—Spear Mint and Cool Mint—though at first she could only call upon one of them at a time, causing her to be teased all throughout Heaven and Hell. Frustrated by her 'weakness' and resulting inability to call forth her second Angel, Lind threw herself into Valkyrie training with incredible ferocity. This intense training gained Lind the reputation as a Goddess of extreme violence. Eventually, she is able to call out both her angels by [[spoiler:realizing that she lacked a belief in herself and a trust towards others during her fight with the Angel Eater planted inside of her by Hild in an attempt to replace her angels with devils.]] She has since become more open and smiles often. She has also established close friendships with Keiichi Morisato and Belldandy.


* ActionGirl
* AnAxeToGrind: Her preferred weapon is a halberd (pole-axe with a spear on the end).
* {{Badass}}: She can easily smash concrete walls with her bare hands! [[spoiler: Granted, it turns out that her halberd is actually supposed to hold her back, notably shown when she fights the Angel Eater; when it takes her halberd, she promptly rips through its legs.]]
* BloodKnight: Mild example, admits at one point that she is fond of breaking things.
* CripplingOverspecialization: Best at fighting out of the goddesses, and the worst at magic. Her attempts to fix Keiichi's house are so bad she and Peorth pass it off as being done by Hagall's doing.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Starts out seemingly cold and impersonal, but eventually warms up to the point of considering Keiichi a lifelong friend.
** When facing a seemingly possessed [[spoiler:Belldandy]], she tells Keiichi and Skuld to leave everything to her, despite the fact that [[spoiler:she had given her second angel, Cool Mint, to Keiichi to allow them to fight the Angel Eater]]. Granted, she had special booster patches on her uniform that allowed her some extra strength, however using all those up (as she was planning to do) would have meant that [[spoiler:she would never be able to fight again afterwards]].
* FashionableAsymmetry: Wears her hair longer on one side than the other, probably ties in to [[spoiler:her angels having only one wing each]].
* GoodOldFisticuffs: She can use magic, but mostly fights using her halberd and bare hands.
* AnIcePerson: Her elemental domain is ice.
* IAmNotLeftHanded: Pulls this on Hild when the reveals that [[spoiler:she has more than one angel]].
** Her using a huge halberd is [[spoiler: simply her way of being polite and giving her opponent a chance. She's actually deadlier without it]].
* InSeriesNickname: One-Winged Lind, see OneWingedAngel below, also has another one. [[spoiler:(Twin Angel Lind, a nickname known by only a few)]].
* IronLady: At the outset, she betrays very little emotion. When she realizes that she [[spoiler:unwittingly became the host of the Angel Eater and puts all the goddesses at the temple in peril just by her mere presence, Skuld is understandably upset at her; Lind does feign shame, but argues that she's not going to dwell on it or lose precious time apologizing.]]
* LadyOfWar: You bet your ass she is.
* OneWingedAngel: A rare literal example. Her angel has only one wing. Somewhat played straight in that whenever a goddess has her angel out, it usually means that they're about to use some high level spells. Of course it's not totally played straight in that Lind is nowhere close to being the BigBad or even a villain for that matter.
** Of course, [[spoiler:it turns out that the reason for the single wing is that she actually has twin angels with one wing each]]. In other words, she's a [[spoiler:double one-winged angel with matching power upgrade, as the epic beatdown she and her angels gave the Angel Eater via a meteor kick from outer space will attest to]].
* [[OneManArmy One-Goddess Army]]: Pretty much Lind's job description as one of the strongest Valkyries in Heaven.
* PluckyGirl: One of the few goddesses able to fight even with her angel ([[spoiler:both of them]]) taken from her, despite the sheer amount of shock from this that usually causes most other goddesses to lose consciousness.
** The first time, when she discovers that the [[spoiler:Angel Eater had piggybacked onto her angel Spear Mint. She doesn't hesitate to rip the angel and the Angel Eater out of her]].
* PhysicalGoddess
* PowerLimiter: [[spoiler:Her halberds function as these, lowering combat potential instead of increasing it. It's implied that this is both for training and to limit collateral damage.]]
* WhenSheSmiles: Lind becomes a lot less chilly and intimidating, almost to the point of being downright cute.
* WomanInWhite
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Cobalt blue in the manga, [[AdaptationDyeJob sky-blue in the anime.]]

!!Chrono, Ere & Ex
->Chrono voiced by: Creator/MasakoJo (JP, TV Series), Creator/YuiHorie (JP, Movie), Creator/RebeccaSoler and Creator/AlissaBrodsky (EN, TV Series), Creator/TaraSands (EN, Movie)\\
Ere voiced by: Creator/ChiemiChiba (JP, TV Series), Creator/RumiKasahara (JP, Movie), Creator/AlissaBrodsky (EN, TV Series), Creator/ElizabethCartier (EN, TV Series), Creator/BarbaraGoodson (EN, Movie)\\
Ex voiced by: Creator/YokoHonna (JP, TV Series), Creator/AkikoYajima (JP, Movie), Creator/EmilyBlau (EN, TV Series), Creator/KarenNeill (EN, TV Series), Creator/EmilyBrown (EN, Movie)

Three goddesses who maintain Yggdrasil. They generally help Peorth and Lind and such by giving relevant exposition, or lines to increase dramatic tension. They also serve as people for Peorth or Lind to give orders to, allowing the commanding character to verbally direct the conflict, and to explain the dangerous nature of certain actions.

* AdaptationExpansion: Chrono has brown hair in her first appearance in the movie where she plays a minor role; she is blonde in the manga, where is shown to be a potential Valkyrie.
* BridgeBunnies
* CanonImmigrant: They were originally introduced in TheMovie before being added to the manga several years later.
* CuteBruiser: It's a remarkable thing when a character with such poor sense of orientation is at the same time a tremendously able fighter and martial artist, amply demonstrating it while fighting with Welsper... [[RuleOfFunny who is a cat... and while she's wearing a maid dress.]]
* TheDitz / NoSenseOfDirection / {{Dojikko}}: Played with, as [[spoiler:the mission as entrusted by Peorth required this particular set of "assets".]]
-->'''Narrator:''' Chrono was foolish by nature.\\
'''Narrator:''' Chrono had no sense of direction.\\
'''Narrator:''' Now would be a good time to mention that Chrono was also clumsy.
* NinjaMaid: Chrono, who happens to be a Valkyrie in training, is forced by Peorth to wear a maid outfit when she goes to Earth to deliver a program to Belldandy.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Chrono has an intense, blinding fear of cats.

->Voiced by: Creator/KoichiYamadera (JP), Creator/DanGreen (EN)

A plum-tree spirit, and one of Urd's old flames. He left Urd to pursue a golden nightingale because all plum-tree spirits are expected to do so.

* {{Bishonen}}: After Art Evolution kicks in, he trades his muscles and rugged facial features in Urd's Volume 4 flashback for a slimmer figure and a smooth face. His hair also become longer and he gains PointyEars to give him an elf-like appearance.
* CastingGag: [[Creator/DanGreen Troubadour]] challenges Keiichi to a [[Anime/YuGiOh DUEL]]!
* CrazyJealousGuy: He gets violently jealous when it comes to Urd, often employing a song that results in the victim being reduced to a bug-filled corpse. Keiichi nearly meets this fate if weren't for a timely counterattack from Urd.
* PointyEars: Gains them after ArtEvolution.

!!Tyr, the Almighty/Kami-sama
Tyr, the Almighty ("Daitenkaicho", "ruler of heaven" in the original Japanese) is the head god. As the Almighty, all goddesses ultimately answer to him and he is responsible for maintaining reality, time, and probability as we know it. His attitude and personality is very commanding, but he is very polite and forgiving; He has forgiven the Norns for disobeying his orders multiple times (as is suggested by Keiichi in the manga). The Almighty One is very blunt and straight-forward. He does not understand how humans act and communicate, possibly because He has not been to Earth in a long time. Throughout the manga and anime he is an unseen character as viewers never see his face, which is usually shrouded in shadow, turned away, or simply too close-up; all that can be discerned is that the Almighty One is tall and well-built, with long black hair. He also has many seals on his hands, neck and on his ears (this could probably be a clue as concerns the fact he may be the deity in doublet with Hild, as also we can imagine listening to her discussing on the Double System).

It is [[{{Fanon}} believed by some people]] that the Almighty is the father of the three Norns. During the "Trouble with Doublets" saga (in the first Dark Horse Comics translation of the manga but NOT the reprint), Belldandy answers the phone and tells her sisters "It's the Almighty." After Urd loses odds and evens against Skuld, she answers with "Oh goodness, Daddy?! It's been ages!" However, it should be noted that in the original Japanese version, "Kami-sama" is not referred to in this way. It is very likely that it is a translation error, as is the case with the OVA dub script where Kami-sama is referred to as the Norns' father as well. In the subtitles for the OVA he is referred to simply as "lord" in the places where the dub uses "father" (the dub of the TV series keeps it ambiguous like the original Japanese). [[AscendedFanon In chapter 294 of the manga he is confirmed to be the Norns' father and his name is revealed to be Tyr.]]

* [[DemonicPossession Divine Possession]]: Tyr has the power to possess other beings and communicate and use his powers through them, which he has demonstrated thrice: Once with Yuki Gomorrah, a student/fortune teller at Nekomi Tech, and twice with the Gates, the latter occurring in chapter 294.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: The Dark Horse character profiles always lists him as, "The Almighty: Almighty."
* TheFaceless: His face is never shown. The only thing that is ever shown of him in the manga is his arm.
* {{God}}: Well, ''duh''.
* OverprotectiveDad: [[spoiler: Even though Keiichi passed the test that would allow him to remain with Belldandy, Tyr insists that he'll only accept it if Keiichi performs a miracle. Which in this case is a bike timetrial that makes the Isle of Man TT race look downright easy.]]
* {{The Trickster}}: Has elements of this in chapters 293-296.

->Voiced by: Creator/HiroshiYanaka (JP), Creator/SteveBlum (EN)

A high ranked angel as well as Belldandy's first love and her mentor. [[spoiler: Serves the BigBad of the movie.]]

* [[spoiler: AntiVillain]]
* [[spoiler: BrokenPedestal: Poor, poor Belldandy. She crossed the DespairEventHorizon after he was defeated and sealed away, and only being given amnesia could fix her.]]
* CanonForeigner: Only appears in TheMovie; not even MENTIONED elsewhere.
* [[spoiler: EvilMentor: To Belldandy, he was an {{Anti Villain}}ous Mentor.]]
* [[spoiler: FallenAngel: In his case, his initial rebellious act was to abolish the Gate of Judgement; in turn, he was stripped from his powers and physical body, and sealed to drift across space.]]
* [[spoiler: GrandTheftMe: On Keiichi!]]
* [[spoiler: KnightOfCerebus: He's an AntiVillain, but he's a much more serious antagonist than most of the canon villains.]]
* [[spoiler: LaserGuidedAmnesia: Inflicts this on Belldandy as a part of his EvilPlan]]
* [[spoiler: LoveRedeems: As Celestine possesses Keiichi's body, he manages to feel and witness the love between Keiichi and Belldandy, which helps him change his mind...]]
* ManInWhite
* PhysicalGod
* [[spoiler: RageAgainstTheHeavens: He was deeply frustrated with Heaven's methods, thinking they weren't enough to make people happy. Then he tried to destroy the Gate of Judgement, and things went FromBadToWorse.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: You don't say?
* [[spoiler: WellIntentionedExtremist]]
* [[spoiler: WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds]]

!!Morgan le Fay
->Voiced by: Creator/AyakoKawasumi (JP), Creator/LiaSargent (EN)

A beautiful fairy and Celestine's messenger.

* AloofDarkHairedGirl: Fits the trope when she's first introduced in the movie in her human appearance. She's just as physically able as [[spoiler:the goddesses themselves.]]
* [[spoiler: AntiVillain]]
* BrokenBird: [[spoiler:Lost her loved one when they couldn't go through the Gate of Judgement, which embittered her deeply.]]
* CanonForeigner: Only exists in TheMovie.
* [[spoiler: {{Cuckold}}: Her attempts to come on Keiichi to drive a wedge between him and Belldandy look a LOT like this. Subverted in that it wasn't to steal Keiichi away, but to make Belldandy emotionally vulnerable enough to have Celestin turn her into his ApocalypseMaiden.]]
* DarkMagicalGirl: Perhaps the best example in the whole franchise, as she isn't downright evil but very, ''very'' troubled.
* {{Foil}}:[[spoiler: To Belldandy concerning Keiichi's affections.]]
* ForcefulKiss: [[spoiler: On Keiichi.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: N'aww! Really?
* [[spoiler: WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds]]

!!The Gates

The personifications of the Gates System of Heaven. Two gates make an appearance in canon; one of them, Gate of Heaven, took a humanoid form and visited the Tarikihongan Temple in search of the meaning of the emotion called "Love" and the second one [[spoiler: the Gate of Judgement was summoned by Anzus to enforce judgement upon Keiichi and Belldandy and first appeared on the movie]]. All gates from the system have exactly the same appearance save from their garb and all have exactly the same memory backup

* AdaptationExpansion: Inverted, as the Gate of Judgement has more meat in the Manga: the Gate of Judgement first appeared in the movie, though it appeared as inert. There, Keiichi and Belldandy [[spoiler:go through it almost effortlessly]]. In the manga, the Gate appears [[spoiler:in the same humanoid form as the Gate of Heaven to enforce judgement upon Keiichi and Belldandy and they literally ''went through Hell and back'' to cross it and the ordeal itself was emotionally enormous.]]
* BrattyHalfPint
* EnfantTerrible: Though diminutive compared to the goddesses at the temple, the Gate of Heaven is considerably stronger than all of them. [[spoiler:The Gate of Judgement does not take lightly the fact that Keiichi and Belldandy were able to step out of the illusion inside her and promptly cuts the glitch with great force]].
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The whole key insertion ordeal; see VisualInnuendo below.
* HiveMind: As mentioned on the description, all Gates have the same memory and are identical to one another.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: The Gate of Heaven is an eternal beholder with endless curiosity to whom no one talks to. Curious as to why a great number of goddesses have gathered upon the temple and the rumors from gods and goddesses passing by regarding that place in particular, the Gate promptly visits the temple, effectively locking every opening in and out of heaven.
* {{Jerkass}}: The Gate of Heaven behaves like this toward Keiichi because she doesn't know better, treating him as if he were stupid, though eventually she comes to appreciate his input. Belldandy is not exactly thrilled by this.
* VisualInnuendo: Gate of Heaven accepts deploying herself once again to allow Peorth to return to Heaven under the condition that Keiichi inserts an enormous key inside her chest; she makes it sound extremely dirty, so much that Urd and Peorth are horrified at the prospect and Belldandy triggers one of her jealousy outbursts.

A magical broom that belongs to Urd and is in the possession of Belldandy. Stringfellow is the fastest broom in heaven.

* CrazyJealousGuy: It is utterly in love with Belldandy and it's tremendously overprotective of her.
* DistinguishingMark: It's no special broom other than having some runes and feathers tied to it.
* {{Foil}}: To Gluhen Des Herzen. Stringfellow requires little more than a pep talk to be insanely fast
* InnocentInnuendo: He only wants to be with Belldandy because he wants her to sweep the floor by using it. No more, no less.
* UtilityMagic: It's a racing broom, but it's more than content to be used by Belldandy to just sweep the floor.
* {{Yandere}}: towards Belldandy.


[[folder: Hell/Niflheim]]

!!Mara (Marller/Marla)
->Voiced by: Creator/UraraTakano (JP); Creator/AlissaBrodsky (EN - TV Series), Creator/MariDevon (EN - Mini-Goddess)

Was once the childhood friend of the goddesses who are the main characters, even though she is a demoness. Urd and Mara used to be very good friends, but got separated when Urd chose to be a goddess. Her actual duty is to increase the market share of the demons on earth, though she decides that removing the goddesses will make it one hundred percent. Like her Buddhist namesake, she is generally regarded only as a nuisance; extremely inept, generally failing due to her sheer incompetence, and on some rare occasions she actually helps the goddesses.


* {{Bifauxnen}}: Was originally drawn to be pretty sexless in the manga, even once claimed to be Belldandy's fiancé, before being eventually outed as female. As the manga wears on though, she begins to swap to the cloak-y outfits from the anime.
* ButtMonkey: After her debut chapter, she becomes more incompetent and frequently receives the bad end of things.
* BlondesAreEvil: Well, yellow blondes at least.
* BoobsOfSteel: Despite (or perhaps because of) her constant failures, Mara demonstrates an unrivaled ability to take physical punishment in stride, and until Thrym's appearance, was the most physically-active of the demons. Accordingly, when reappearing after the Lord of Terror arc, she's shown to be very well endowed.
* CuteLittleFangs: Gets these after ArtEvolution makes her ProgressivelyPrettier.
* EvilLaugh: A very convincing one, which is kinda ironic considering how poor her actuall skills are.
* EvilPlan: Increasing the marketshare of demons is the purpose of her zany schemes. ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext, if there was any context to begin with.
* GoldfishPoopGang: Given the number of times she gets easily discarded by the Goddesses and Banpei, she does qualify.
* {{Harmless Villain}}ess: She is too goofy to be taken as a serious threat.
** She was presented as a danger in her early appearances, but suffered heavily from VillainDecay, becoming more of a ButtMonkey, and her plans becoming less dangerous when the series established that gods and demons have rules against killing each other.
** NotSoHarmlessVillain: One of her plans, [[spoiler: involving putting everyone at Nekomi Tech under Sayoko's mind-control (Sayoko's wish) and having her tell the mind-controlled Belldandy to return to Heaven (the payment)]], [[NearVillainVictory almost succeeded]], and only failed because of [[spoiler: Sayoko told Belldandy to return home, [[ExactWords causing her to return to the temple where she lives with Keiichi]]]]. And until Keiichi [[spoiler: returned home and found Belldandy there]], characters and ''the readers'' thought she had won until TheReveal.
* InvoluntaryDance: One of her weaknesses. She can't stop dancing (badly) if she hears rock music, or in the Dark Horse manga translation, disco.
* ManipulativeBitch: Invoked many times. She ''tries'' to be this but she's hardly ever successful.* OfCorsetsSexy: Several of her outfits feature this, most notably in the second season of the anime.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent
* PrettyFreeloader: Rarely if she's staying with Keiichi and the Goddesses.
* ProgressivelyPrettier: One of the main examples in the series, she gets cuter (and later more attractive) as the series progresses.
* PunchClockVillain: Prevalent in the second season of the anime, where she's even HELPING the Goddesses and Keiichi a couple times.
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* RockMeAsmodeus: Inverted, and made into a WeaksauceWeakness. See InvoluntaryDance above.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: See variations of her name above. The Japanese romanization and fansubs use Marller while Dark Horse sticks ro
* VitriolicBestBuds: Used to be this with Urd, before the latter went to Heaven to become a goddess.
* WeaksauceWeakness: She's allergic to lucky charms. Usually it just gives her a terrible headache, but contact with one she never touched caused her to faint and [[EasyAmnesia lose her memory]]. Also see InvoluntaryDance above.
* WomanInBlack: Not a very straight example though, given her comical nature and her antics.
** BlackCloak
* ZanyScheme: ALL THE TIME!! And they all fail hilariously. [[spoiler:Well, except for that one time with Sayoko...]]

->Voiced by: Creator/GaraTakashima (JP), Creator/MaryElizabethMcGlynn (EN)

The ultimate Demon who is the opposite to The Almighty, known as the Ruler of Demonkind, or "Daimakaicho" (great demon-world leader) in the original Japanese. She is incredibly powerful, with her power dwarfing even the combined strength of the three goddesses. Despite her immense power, she respects the doublet system, and thus limits her power to prevent killing any of the Goddesses. She is Urd's mother, and she loves her daughter deeply, although Urd does not return the feeling (it is revealed that doing so would mean that Urd would acknowledge and thus be taken over by her demonic side). Hild displays a similar witty personality to Urd, though she is far more mean-spirited, and a fondness for dressing in revealing outfits. Hild dislikes Belldandy, because Belldandy's attitude and love for humanity reminds her of Belldandy and Skuld's father and the relationship they once had. Because of this, she has often tried to corrupt or hurt Belldandy several times throughout the series. She also seems to have some feelings for Keiichi Morisato.

She appears a few times before leaving an avatar child version of herself, who would go on to become a regular antagonist for the goddesses, as well as a direct supervisor for Mara. While this avatar possesses only one thousandth of the true Hild's power, it is still enough to make the avatar a powerful enemy for anyone. Despite this, as well as being generally more competent then Mara, she often proved just an inept. In the manga, a small team of demons sealed her main body and attacked her avatar in the human world.


* AffablyEvil: Despite being {{Satan}} she's not too bad, especially compared to other demons she keeps in check. So far whenever helping the main characters she's refrained from every double-crossing them despite her rather mean-spirited temperament.
* BerserkButton: Do refrain from pointing out the possibility of her pulling a double cross or refusing a deal with her.
* FourStarBadass: She IS the leader of Hell after all.
* DarkSkinnedBlond: One of the clues that she's Urd's mother.
* DeathGlare: Comes part and parcel with her status and power level. Urd is also capable of a similar glare.
* GenerationXerox: She's effectively a darker-skinned, taller Urd with a different hairdo and a mean streak.
* HornyDevil: Some shades of it since she'll flirt with most anything.
* HotAsHell: Her picture used to be on the trope page.
* IGaveMyWord: She says she keep any deals she makes and has so refrained from abusing any loopholes. A DealWithTheDevil isn't all that dangerous when its with her as long as you don't wish for something too extreme.
* MsFanservice: Like mother, like daughter.
* MumLooksLikeASister: Justified due to being the leader of Hell, she can turn into any age she wants. Her most common appearance is around her daughter's age.
* MysticalWhiteHair
* NotSoDifferent: She act times acts exactly like Urd. On exchange of insults they throw at each is almost word for word the same as one between Urd and Skuld.
* PurpleEyes: Another thing she shares with her daughter.
* RunningGag: Hild likes to kiss people out of the blue. She's caught AT LEAST [[spoiler:Keiichi, Lind, and Hagall]] off-guard. And they all freaked out.
* {{Satan}}: Since she's the ruler of all demons.
* WalkingWasteland: In her first appearance across all versions, she states if it weren't for all the [[PowerLimiter power-limiting jewelry]] she wears (yes, she uses [[UpToEleven multiple ones]]), her entrance into the human world would likely destroy the whole city, and even with them, her entrance still causes dark clouds to appear and stir as well as kicking up gale-force winds.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Nowhere near as evil as most examples.

!!Welsper (Velsper)
A demon, who is in a doublet, a link of fate established to preserve the balance between Heaven and Hell, with Belldandy. The doublets normally forget each other, but [[spoiler:Welsper cursed himself to remain in child form in exchange for remembering his encounter with Belldandy. The curse could only be broken if Belldandy speaks his name. It turned out that his body could not handle his growing power, so he worked to break the curse by stopping time. After installing a virus in Yggdrasil, he ends up having the curse broken, and returns to the demon realm. However, because he hacked into Yggdrasil,]] he was punished afterwards by being reincarnated into a kitten. He is the only demon who shows a ''tsukaima'' (demon servant, English translation: "familiar"), having it obtained by Keiichi after neither him nor Belldandy could handle the burden of bringing the creature which almost transformed her into a demon because of Hild. His black fur becomes white spotted, but he returns normal after naming his ''tsukaima'' as "Die Wespe der Blauen Lanze" ("The Wasp of the Blue Lance" in German).

* ArcVillain: [[spoiler:Of the Mystery Child arc.]]
* BlowYouAway: His elemental attribute is wind.
* CatsAreMean: Has occasional occurrences of this; however, (s)he's no Garfield.
* GenderBender: Was reincarnated as a '''female''' cat, though he's quite, QUITE male in his mind.
* [[GratuitousForeignLanguage Gratuitous German]]: How he names his familiar.
* OlderThanTheyLook: [[spoiler:Turned himself into a kid permanently so as not to forget Belldandy, who he was in doublet with. Ends up biting him in the ass somethin' fierce.]]
** CreepyChild: See OlderThanTheyLook.
* PunchClockVillain: More like he didn't punch in at all once "she" got reincarnated.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: "Welsper" is the correct spelling, being German-based, but the Dark Horse translation consistently uses "Velsper" to avoid confusion over the pronunciation.

->Voiced by: Creator/NorioWakamoto (JP), Creator/KevinTCollins (EN)

Mara's assistant and self proclaimed god of misofortune and poverty, Senbei is a miniature genie summoned from a bottle of ramune. He's extremely fond of saying "Sha'kine!" and peppering his speech with foreign phrases.

* AssholeVictim: the premise of his powers.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In the English dub of ''Flights of Fancy'', at least...he lets out a long, drawn-out "''Merde!'"
* GratuitousForeignLanguage: No matter the version, Senbei is really, REALLY bad about spouting phrases from multiple languages.
* GoldfishPoopGang: He works with Mara, and is just as if not MORE incompetent at causing misfortune.
* JackassGenie: And one full of himself at that.

!!The Lord of Terror
A virus that runs on Yggdrasil. It is divided into two parts—the will of the Lord of Terror, and the "Ultimate Destruction Program", Fenrir. It wants to destroy the world and create a world for demons in its place (this happens only in the anime, while in the manga we can see that his intent is to destroy the entire universe in order to create a new, violent one; this is the reason why [[spoiler:Keiichi, possessed by the program, wants Skuld to build a 10 dimensional scythe for cutting the 10 dimensional string of the universe, which permit its existence). The heir to the Lord of Terror was Urd, because of her mixed ancestry. Basically, the Great Lord's will influenced Urd and eventually sealed her will away. It then utilized the urn Mao Za Haxon, which contained the Ultimate Destruction Program's bootup. After it had possessed Keiichi, Belldandy told it to transfer to her but it could not possess her, as the base wavelength was different, and was quickly forced to transfer itself to a floppy disk and was then erased by Skuld with a magnet.]]

* AntiClimax: [[spoiler:The Lord of Terror, who was on the verge of rampaging through the city just mere hours before ends up locked in a diskette which is then write-locked.]]
* BigBad: of the 1st Season of the TV series which corresponds to his titular arc in the manga.
* CanisMajor: [[spoiler: the Ultimate Destruction Program, which is a version of the wolf Fenrir, which in this series is {{Kaiju}} sized.]]
* DiabolusExNihilo: Seriously, where the hell did this guy come from?
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: He wants to destroy reality, and then, we don't know what.
* GrandTheftMe: Its main method of survival is to jump from a dying/weak body into a stronger one. In the series [[spoiler:it goes from Urd to Fenrir to Midgard to Keiichi to a floppy disk.]]
* OmnicidalManiac: He wants to destroy reality; all ten dimensions of it.
* WeaksauceWeakness: [[spoiler:He gets erased... from existence... by Skuld... with a small magnet. Granted he was forced into a floppy disk and she explains why that would kill him.]]

!! Hagall
The second most powerful demon in Hell, who takes the control of Hell in a rebellion against Hild, because she thinks Hild has lost the power and glory of the demon world. Through an elaborate plan to get more share of wishes on Earth and to destroy everything related to the Goddesses, she imprisons Hild and sends her servants to attack Chibi-Hild on Earth, however she manages to escape and goes with Belldandy to ask for help (manga chapters 240 till 262). Hagall usually talks about herself in third person [[spoiler: at least while she's acting like a nutter]] and her powers include mental control and hypnotism. Besides, she is a very selfish and ambitious demon who does not consider the energetic balance between Heaven and Hell (brought by human contracts).

* BigBad: Fills this role in the penultimate arc of the manga.
* BigNo: [[spoiler:An internal one when Hild takes over her body.]]
* BoobsOfSteel: Second-strongest in Hell, and some manga panels even depict her with larger breasts than Hild's (mostly due to her outfit).
* CripplingOverspecialization: Hagall is excellent bar none when it comes to hypnotism but mediocre in other forms of spells; in spite of this, she is powerful enough to by Hell's second-in-command.
* CuteAndPsycho: [[spoiler:Inverted since her psychoness is mostly a role she plays and her real personality is rather adorable, if a little foul-mouthed.]]
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: [[spoiler:That little amulet smelled a bit too much like Hild, so she quickly disposed of it. Of course, it still wasn't DGS enough. After all, she's up against Keiichi.]]
* TheDragon: was supposed to be this to Hild, until she rebelled.
* ElegantGothicLolita: She's a snappy dresser alright! Frilly skirts and all!
* HotAsHell: Very, very much.
* HypnoticEyes: Her power consists in altering her victim's perception through eye contact and inducing nightmarish situations into their minds.
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler:Holy Bell!!]]
* LadySwearsALot: In the Goddess Miyaku Team fan-lation at least, [[spoiler:after she drops the psycho façade she has the absolute worst language out of ANY character in the manga, being the only character to actually drop F-bombs]] when the worst anyone else has is maybe "damn".
* MeaningfulName: Her name means "hail" in old Norwegian, old Icelandic and in Anglo-Saxon.
* ReplacementGoldfish: As Hagall points out, Urd should be Hild's second-in command and is shunning a rightful position of privilege that anyone in Hell would die for. Urd does envy Hagall for being able to actually be around Hild all the time, which is something she'll never be able to do herself.
* ShesGotLegs
* ShowGirlSkirt
* TheStarScream: A successful one at that, seeing as when we're introduced to her, she's already taken over Hell.
* ThirdPersonPerson
* UndyingLoyalty: [[spoiler:Her ''true'' motive for "usurping" Hild. She's trying to save Hild from the clause in demonic law that requires the ruler of Hell to die when her term expires. Being usurped doesn't count as "expiring".]]

A powerful demon who serves Hagall in a rebellion against Hild. Her name has the 'rune of sound' "Þ" (Thurisaz, Thorn or Thurs). Her main power is an ability "to see sounds" and combat in complete darkness. She battled against Keiichi and Belldandy in chapter 251 to 255 of the manga. [[spoiler: In chapter 255, Halval lost the fight through a plan of Keiichi Morisato: he was influenced by the kiss of Chibi-Hild who transferred some of her knowledge to him before she went back to Niflheim.]]

* CripplingOverspecialization: [[spoiler:Halval cannot see beyond the speed of sound; as the broom Dragon Flame Death Heart is supersonic, this costs her the fight]].
* [[spoiler:TheLoad: To the rebels at Niflheim. Eihwaz even points out that Halval is not very trustworthy.]]
* SuperSenses: Her main power is the ability to "see" sounds. This means "seeing" loud noises is the equivalent of a bright light in her face.
* [[spoiler:WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Effectively disappears from the story after she loses the fight against the Norns.]]

Thrym is a demon that serves Hagall in the rebellion, that specializes in physical strength. She is a strong, tall and muscular woman, with short hair. She challenges Belldandy and co. and blocks their passage through Nifelheim from chapters 257 to 261. Her strength is so immense she's able to deflect sound-waves by punching in the air. [[spoiler: After the battle she becomes friendly with the group after healing Keiichi's wounds and later wonders if anybody worthy of her strength will challenge her again. She also refuses to accept the defeat as anything other than a legitimate, well-fought one.]]

* ActionGirl
* AffablyEvil: Is overall very friendly, though is at the same time remorseless about any harm she inflicts on others even they can't fight back.
* BoisterousBruiser: Just look at her!
* [[spoiler:DefeatMeansFriendship: Becomes friendly with the Keiichi and the goddesses once they beat her.]]
* LadyLooksLikeADude: If she didn't have such prominent cleavage Thrym wouldn't look female at all.
* MegatonPunch: Anything she punches breaks. [[spoiler: Even songs and giant gothic doors.]]

Hrungnir (also translated as Mokkurkalfi) is also a demon that serves Hagall. She wears a mask and a helmet somewhat resembling an old German WWI uniform. She is a "puppeteer" in that she's able to create and control robots and machines, similar to Skuld. Unlike Skuld, she views her creations as tools rather than with affection. Unsurprisingly, when Keiichi and company confront her, due to disabling magic in the room she ends up fighting Skuld.

* EvilCounterpart: To Skuld,to an extent.
* HypocriticalHumor: Skuld points out that Hrungnir prides herself too much in her work not to care about it; [[spoiler:she eventually realizes that her crafts actually care about her as they defend her from Skuld's attacks.]]
* WrenchWench
* WrongGenreSavvy: No, [[FashionVictimVillain wearing a silly red outfit]] will not make you go faster. This isn't Warhammer40000.

A demon that looks like a five year old girl and seems pretty harmless. She's actually Hrungnir's older sister and Hagall's second in command.

* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: With her sister Hrungnir. According to the latter, Eihwaz is so snappy that it doesn't make it particularly easy to love her.
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler:Eihwaz created the conditional rooms where most of the action in Niflheim takes place. As it turned out, all the rooms were created to gauge and drain powers from the Goddesses in order to make them vulnerable.]]
* CuteAndPsycho: A cute little girl with a love for karaoke. But she has a really bad attitude waiting to pop out.
* TheDragon: While Hagall is Hild's Dragon, Eihwaz is Hagall's in turn.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain
* OlderThanTheyLook
* PaperFanOfDoom: Whacks Hrungnir with it. "Who are you calling ill-tempered?!"
* SadisticChoice: [[spoiler: Almost forces Keiichi to kill her to save Belldandy from fading into nothingness.]]

!Dragon Flame Death Heart / Gluhen Des Herzen
A magical, demonic, sentient broom that belongs to Hild. It belonged to Welsper before he began his omnicidal crusade.

* TheAce: It's the fastest device in both Heaven and Hell.
* ChekhovsGun: Had it not been there with its supersonic speed, the Norns and Keiichi would not have been able to win over Halval.
* CripplingOverspecialization: It is the fastest broom in both Heaven and Hell, but its range is actually very short.
* DeadpanSnarker: It's snarky and snappy as hell (pardon the pun). It's remarkable, considering it doesn't have a face.
* FatalFlaw: It's proud to a fault.
* {{Foil}}: To the broom Stringfellow, which only requires a pep talk to be fast; also, Stringfellow is very content to just be a broom.
* GeniusBruiser: It's not only that it's fast; it's also tremendously agile in combat, as Halval comes to eventually understand. Had she not given up the fight, he would have killed her.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Invoked. When they first get through the gates of Hell, the Norns notice Keiichi fidgeting while riding Gluhen Des Herzen and begin getting concerned that the speed and the broomstick might be crushing Keiichi's testicles... all of them... yes, even Skuld... yes, seriously.
* HesitantSacrifice: [[spoiler:Skuld basically has to destroy it by overpowering it in order to make it fast enough to get out of Hell]].
* NonIndicativeName: Dragon Flame Death Heart is not a broom ''per se''; it's actually a vacuum cleaner.
* OffOnATechnicality: In order to race in a proper broom race with Belldandy, Hild has to demonstrate that Gluhen Des Herzen is a vacuum cleaner, even though it looks more like a rocket than a broom.
* PlayedStraight: Aside from Welsper, the Lord of Terror and Garmr, Gluhen Des Herzen is the only being that actually acts like a demon in the series; this means, antagonizing and sometimes brutish.
* PointOfNoReturn: He accompanies Keiichi and Belldandy up until the throne room of Hell. He stops at the door and says that he took them up until the point where he cannot be considered a traitor and that he cannot antagonize the ruler of Hell directly; he then bids farewell to his companions and wishes them luck.
* RuleOfCool: It's a vacuum cleaner that looks like a cross between a harpoon and an electric guitar. It even floors Skuld with its design.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Hild. He even endures an alliance with the Norns for her sake.
* TheUnfettered: Halval genuinely thinks that her life is in danger when Gluhen Des Herzen attacks her. Had she not thrown the towel, he could have killed her.
* UtilityMagic: It's the fastest device ever built... and it's a vacuum cleaner.
* WeAreStrugglingTogether: He cannot abide to a Hell ruled by Hagall, so he allies himself to the Norns and Keiichi in order to topple her.


A character exclusive to the novel ''Ah! My Goddess!: First End'' by Yumi Toma, Urd's seiyuu. She is the governess deity of the dead who is always accompanied by the wolf Garm.

* BonusBoss: She is at the very least at the same power level as Hild.
* GorgeousGorgon: Described as a "monstrous beauty".
* SecondHandStoryTelling: According to Hild, Hel was the first to notice there was something wrong when [[spoiler:Keiichi and Urd's souls were missing from the universal implosion that killed everyone.]]


[[folder: Nekomi]]

!!Megumi Morisato
->Voiced by: Creator/YurikoFuchizaki (JP); Creator/EmilyBauer (EN - TV Series), Creator/AmandaSpivey (EN - OVA), Creator/StephanieGreene (EN - Movie)

Keiichi Morisato's younger sister. She attends the Nekomi Institute of Technology (NIT), like Keiichi, as an engineering student. Megumi is also a very skilled mechanic and motorcycle driver. She goes on to become the "queen" of bike racers around Nekomi. Belldandy has remarked that she sees a similarity between Megumi and Skuld, and that she would like to see Skuld learn some things from Megumi. As we know from the recent developments in the manga, she has a lot of success with boys, but she is not lucky in love because all of her boyfriends feel [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon eclipsed by her motor-queen status]]. The Dark Horse translation suggests there's also a bit of BigBrotherWorship verging on BigBrotherAttraction, as she's shown telling one boy, "You'll never hold a candle to Keiichi."

* BigEater: In her early manga appearances she's constantly snacking. This was phased out after ArtEvolution made her more attractive.
* BikerBabe: The "Queen of the Ridge", a title she earned by winning ''multiple races around a mountain road against the previous holder''. Notably, she doesn't like the title...see NoGuyWantsAnAmazon and OvershadowedByAwesome for why.
* CatSmile: Her default expression.
* NoGuyWantsAnAmazon: Every guy she dates breaks up with her because they can't handle the pressure going out with the Nekomi's [[InSeriesNickname Queen of the Ridge]].
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Not many know it, but she refuses to be called Queen (short for "Queen of the Ridge") because, in her words, the true king is Keiichi, and Belldandy his queen.
* PassionateSportsGirl: She's in the Softball Club, very good at the sport and is very determined to keep the club alive.
* PluckyGirl: Nothing fazes her.
* WrenchWench: As a Morisato, she's gotta be.

!!Toraichi Tamiya
->Voiced by: Creator/KiyoyukiYanada (JP); Creator/MarcMatney (EN - OVA), Creator/BobPapenbrook (EN - Movie), Creator/MarcThompson (EN, TV Series)

One of the former directors of the Motor Club and Keiichi's sempai. Recognizable by his muscular body and thick lips. Is almost always never seen without his [[HeterosexualLifePartners partner]] Otaki by his side.

* CloudCuckooLander: Both him and Otaki are a tad eccentric.
* {{Gonk}}: The guy is freaky-looking, arguably more so ''after'' ArtEvolution. His sunken eyes and fish lips is the main factor.
* TheGlomp: How Tamiya welcomes all new members of the auto club. Most end up quitting immediately.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: with Otaki.
* InSeriesNickname: Is called "Den-chan" by Otaki.
* MistakenForGay: Peorth assumes that he's into Keiichi while he had a crush on her.
* StealthHiBye: Frequently pops out of nowhere and disappears into nowhere. He almost always appears behind Keiichi, usually to announce Motor Club-related stuff.
* ThemeNaming: Tamiya, Otaki and Hasegawa are all named for Japanese model-making companies.
* TopHeavyGuy: He becomes bulkier as the series progresses. Originally he's the same size as Otaki.

!!Hikozaemon Otaki
->Voiced by: Creator/IsseiFutamata (JP); Creator/SeanPOConnell (EN - OVA), Creator/DaranNorris (EN - Movie), Creator/ScottieRay (EN - TV Series)

One of the former directors of the Motor Club and Keiichi's sempai. Is almost always never seen without his [[HeterosexualLifePartners partner]] Tamiya by his side. Always wears a black biker jacket and spark plugs for earrings. Eventually, he starts dating Satoko Yamano, one of the campus' most attractive female students.

* CloudCuckooLander: Both him and Tamiya are a tad eccentric.
* CrazyPrepared: This guy wears ''spark plugs'' for earrings.
* {{Cosplay}}: His hobby, also one of the things he shares with Satoko.
* EightiesHair: A mullet.
* EvenNerdsHaveStandards: Although he and his girlfriend are both cosplayers, he finds Mr. Yamano's interest in cosplay to be so intense as to be kind of creepy.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Tamiya (though unlike Tamiya, he gets a girlfriend).
* InSeriesNickname: Is called "Dai-chan" by Tamiya.
* LiteralMinded: When he asked what should he wear for a dinner at Satoko's house Belldandy suggested something noble and elegant like a knight, so he grabbed his fullmetal armor.
* ThemeNaming: Tamiya, Otaki and Hasegawa are all named for Japanese model-making companies.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Otaki is afraid of dogs.

!!Sora Hasegawa
->Voiced by: Creator/IkueOtani (JP - OVA and TV series first season); Creator/SatomiKoorogi (JP - TV series second season), Creator/ZoeMartin (EN - TV Series), Creator/StephanieGriffin (EN - OVA), Creator/MelissaFahn (EN - Movie)

Keiichi's [[SempaiKohai kohai]] and current director of the N.I.T. Motor Club.

* ACupAngst: Much to her chagrin.
* BerserkButton: Don't ever, ever say that she looks like a high-schooler.
* CoolCar: Drives a tuned-up original Fiat 500.
* InformedAbility: Implied to be a WrenchWench by virtue of her being in the Nekomi Motor Cycle Club as well as a few comments by the other club members, though we never actually see her working on anything.
* LethalChef: Her nickname was the "Chef Murderer," Belldandy eventually [[CharacterDevelopment helps her get better]].
** Actually, her case is an interesting subversion. In the TV series, she was actually a great cook, but suffered a HeroicBSOD whenever asked to cook for an audience, causing her skills to deteriorate. This tied into the plot of the episode, where she had performance-anxiety issues about a go-kart race for NIT's Auto Club. Again, Belldandy, being the kind of [[PhysicalGoddess "person"]] she is, helped Sora get [[{{Pun}} (heh)]] back on track.
* {{Meganekko}}
* ThemeNaming: Tamiya, Otaki and Hasegawa are all named for Japanese model-making companies.

!!Sayoko Mishima
->Voiced by: Creator/JunkoAsami (JP - OVA), Creator/MamikoNoto (JP - TV); Creator/KarenNeill (EN - TV Series), Creator/BelindaBizic (EN - OVA)

A popular girl at Nekomi Tech, to the point where she considers herself the "queen" of the school. She is also quite rich, coming from a wealthy family: she has her own apartment and an expensive car, and gets to throw lavish parties with very important people.

When Belldandy appears, all the guys' attention turns to her rather than Sayoko. She immediately becomes jealous of Belldandy and wants to make her upset by seducing Keiichi, even though Sayoko doesn't have any interest in him. She even goes to the lengths of teaming up with Toshiyuki Aoshima (her younger cousin) and Mara to bring Bell down. They Fail. As the series progresses, she gradually becomes less and less antagonistic, even offering Keiichi relationship advice and foiling Mara's schemes. It seems as though she develops feelings for Keiichi at the beginning of season 2, when she didn't feel as lonely when he was with her. Sayoko has seen both Urd and Belldandy use their powers, although she now believes that Belldandy is a witch. She is shown to have much pride, and seems to almost enjoy competing with Belldandy at times.


* ArbitrarySkepticism: She realizes that something is up with Belldandy, but refuses to believe her when she says she's a goddess. Instead, she assumes she's lying and is really a witch. In the anime, she even assumes that "Goddess" is merely a title because she calls herself "Queen".
* BitchAlert: The first time we see her (in Keiichi's flashback, no less) we can guess she's a bitch.
* BondageIsBad: She's more of a jerk, but she's also a member of the BDSM club.
** BrainsAndBondage: As a college student, we can guess she has quite the brain.
* CharacterDevelopment: Starts out as wanting to steal Keiichi simply to beat Belldandy, but later on [[LadykillerInLove seems to develop]] [[BecomingTheMask genuine feelings for him.]]
* EvilIsPetty: When first introduced, she literally has it all - beauty, brains, money, and a powerful family that owns an influential corporation. But because Belldandy upstaged her in the desirability department, she becomes an emotional wreck and shows off a mile wide vindictive streak. Naturally, Mara takes advantage of this more than once in her attempts to mess with Belldandy.
* HarmlessVillain: Doesn't really have that much of a evil streak. Possibly because she does seem to develop genuine feelings for Keiichi.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: Most of the problems she faces against the Goddesses stem from the fact that she is a very lonely person. The main problem is that she wants what she cannot have, which is Keiichi.
* {{Jerkass}}: Early-on in the anime and manga, at least; she's not as bad in the OVA.
* LadyDrunk: She readily drowns her sorrows after anything bad happens to her.
* LadyKillerInLove: A Gender Inversion.
--> '' "why do the words and the smile of a pathetic guy like him have the power to make a queen like me feel like such a piece of garbage?" ''
* LastLousyPoint: She has money, an important name, social status, attractiveness and a line of suitors; the only problem is that she doesn't have any friends and the first and only person she wants affection from doesn't see her that way... ''he just wants her as a friend''. This, of course, bugs her to no end.
* ManipulativeBitch: At the beginning.
* NoblewomansLaugh: Sometimes.
* RichBitch
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: It was [[NiceGuy Keiichi]] whom she wanted all along, creating an UnrequitedLoveSwitcheroo situation for her.
* TheOjou
* TheRival: Fancies herself as this to Belldandy. [[SarcasmMode It's gone quite well for her.]]
* VictoryIsBoring: [[spoiler: When a wish from Mara puts Belldandy in a stop where Sayoko has mind controlled her, she loses interest in having Belldandy bow to her because she wants to prove herself better on her own terms.]] Mara had other plans, but they didn't work out.

!!Toshiyuki Aoshima
->Voiced by: Creator/NobuoTobita (JP); Creator/MarcDiraison (EN - TV Series), Creator/ScottHoule (EN - OVA)

A playboy around the Nekomi Institute of Technology campus and Sayoko's cousin. He is enamoured of Belldandy and tries often to steal her away from Keiichi, going as far as to set up a rival motor club. However, in just about all of his attempts, he fails miserably. In the TV series, he and his cousin Sayoko can be identified by the supercars that they drive, in Aoshima's case, an Enzo Ferrari (Ferrari 288 GTO in the manga).

* AttemptedRape: Almost had his way with both Belldandy and [[OvernightAgeUp Skuld]] in separate occasions but got {{jossed}} ''in extremis''.
* AssholeVictim: Pretty much brings misfortune on himself because he's an asshole.
* BespectacledBastardBoyfriend: Has shades of this, especially when he turns on the "rapist" mode.
* BreakTheHaughty: Thinks ''extremely'' highly of himself and Karma's a bitch.
* TheCasanova: Especially towards Belldandy and Adult!Skuld.
* FourEyesZeroSoul: Jerk. Ass. Extraordinare.
* {{Jerkass}}: Don'tcha want to just bitchslap him?
* PetTheDog: He finally showed a bit of concern when he found Sora in pain. [[spoiler:And promptly got knocked out by her rapidly expanding boobs!]]

!!Chihiro Fujimi
[[caption-width:319:Click [[labelnote:here]] http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chihiro_54.jpg[[/labelnote]] to see Chihiro in the TV Anime]]
->Voiced by: Creator/YukaImai (JP); Creator/DorothyEliasFahn (EN - Movie), Creator/VeronicaTaylor (EN - TV Series)

The original founder and director of the Nekomi Institute of Technology Motor Club. She is a resolute person and an incredibly skilled mechanic and motorcycle driver, even more so than Keiichi. She gives up professional racing and starts up her own motorcycle shop called Whirlwind, hiring Keiichi and Belldandy to work for her (with Tamiya and Otaki as temps and backup). Normally a no-nonsense personality, she has a soft spot for cute objects, cats and children and seems to enjoy relaxing activities (such as bathing in an onsen) and having fun. She drives a Krauser Domani [=SSi=]. When she was director of the N.I.T. motor club, both Tamiya and Otaki confessed they loved her but she turned them both down rather than cause conflict in the club. Both Tamiya and Otaki respect and fear her very much, obediently following her orders.


* AuthorAppeal: The cool headed, mature "goddess of mechanics" seems to be the mangaka's personal dream girl. Maybe this is why she is not romantically interested in anyone.
* BadassNormal: Can cow Tamiya and Otaki with a single glance.
* BikerBabe: Though far from a leather-clad Hell's Angel.
* CutenessProximity: Chihiro is a sucker for anything cute.
* TheOneThatGotAway: To Tamiya and Otaki. They both proposed to her and she turned them down. One of the main reasons she keeps them around is because they are her friends and they still love her and respect her ''very'' much, though one of their misgivings is that they cannot help but to treat her as their superior all the time.
* ShipperOnDeck: Ships Keiichi/Belldandy.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: She's a tough, no nonsense, motorcycle-riding, drag-racing, mechanical genius who's also a huge fan for everything that's even the slightest bit cute.
* WeaksauceWeakness: See CutenessProximity.
* WrenchWench: So much so that Keiichi says that she could almost be a goddess of mechanics.

!!Satoko Yamano
->Voiced by: Creator/ChieNakamura (JP); Creator/StephanieSheh (EN)

Daughter one of the directors of the Nekomi Institute of Technology where she's a freshman in electronics. She is quite attractive—even Keiichi comments that she is one of the top five most attractive girls at Nekomi Tech. She meets Otaki when her scooter breaks down on campus and Otaki decides to help her despite the insistence of Aoshima that she ride his car instead. [[spoiler:They start going out and she eventually gets her father's approval of Otaki.]]


* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: She hasn't appeared or been mentioned in the manga in over a decade.
* CosplayOtakuGirl: One of the things that she shares in common with Otaki.
** Apparently, she gets it from her dad, which unnerves Otaki to no end when he tries to get him to try different outfits.
* ShrinkingViolet: Very much shy.

!Kozueko Izumi

A character exclusive of the book ''Ah! My Goddess!: First End'' by Yumi Tohma (as authorized by Kozuke Fujishima himself), Izumi is a student at Nekomi Tech who meets Keiichi on an event organized by the Motor Club. [[spoiler:Izumi is the person that Keiichi would have met had he and Belldandy failed to meet.]]

* [[spoiler:DownerEnding: Izumi and Keiichi's relationship comes to fruition at the cost of his relationship with Belldandy. Had Belldandy hung on, reality would have been shattered. In the end, the Goddesses memories are erased for their security and Belldandy only hangs on to the ring Keiichi gave her as a gift without any knowledge of where it came from.]]
* ReplacementGoldfish and TheOtherDarrin: [[spoiler:To Belldandy. When Belldandy realizes that clinging to Keiichi would result not only in his death but on the destruction of the universe itself, Keiichi's prospective relationship with Izumi as shown by Hild makes Belldandy abandon her relationship with Keiichi with full assurance that he would be happy even without her.]]


[[folder: Other Characters]]

!!Angels and Familiars
Heavenly and demonic entities that are bound to goddesses and demons respectively in order to enhance their powers and indicators of their state; the angels and familiars featured in the story are:

* '''Holy Bell''': Belldandy's angel
* '''World Of Elegance''': Urd's angel
* '''Noble Scarlet''': Skuld's angel
* '''Gorgeous Rose''': Peorth's angel
* '''Spear Mint''' and '''Cool Mint''': Lind's twin one-winged angels.
* '''Die Wespe der Blauen Lanze''' (Blue Lance's Wasp): Welsper's familiar.

Tropes that apply to the angels/familiars:
* AntiGravityClothing: Their garbs consist of nothing but floating strips of fabric (in Gorgeous Rose's case; thorny vines) which conveniently cover all interesting bits.
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Indirectly: whenever goddesses are sick or receive damage, it's their angels who show the obvious physical changes that are being incurred.
* BeneathTheMask: Invoked. The angels are subject to the exact same emotions as their hosts; it's specially egregious in the case of Noble Scarlet, as all of her initial actions when she was diminutive reflected Skuld's desires and behaved accordingly. Whereas Skuld wanted to approach Sentaro, Noble Scarlet pushes her to do so and whereas Skuld orders her to go back into her egg form should she do something like that again, the little angel literally does so much to Skuld's anguish.
* CuteBruiser: All angels, though Lind's twin angels and Noble Scarlet are of special mention.
* [[GuardianAngel Guardian Angels]]: An angel is a goddess's closest companion, and is the mirror reflecting a goddess's true nature and innermost soul.
* HeroicBSOD: According to Keiichi (who is as a matter of fact the only human to have hosted an angel), the sense of loss that goddesses feel when their angels are removed from them is effectively crippling; in perspective, during the battle against the Angel Eater, Lind lost both Spear Mint and Cool Mint.
* LiteralMinded: In the case of young angels and familiars such as Noble Scarlet and Die Wespe der Blauen Lanze, which causes considerable problems for their hosts.
* NotSoDifferent: Angels and familiars can both be bound to goddesses and perform similar functions to their respective hosts. Demons don't usually employ familiars because they consider them a vulnerability.
* [[PluckyGirl Plucky Girls]]: In droves.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Angels are introduced to goddesses at an early age as permanent companions and enhancers of their powers.
* RuleOfCute: All angels (and even the familiar) share the same perkiness and enthusiasm. Not to mention, they're all very [[CuddleBug affectionate]] [[BearHug huggers]].
* TheSymbiote: Goddesses and angels are effectively dependent of one another once they are bound. [[spoiler:This is a vulnerability that is exploited at least twice in the manga by demons.]]
* TwoBeingsOneBody: In most cases; in the case of Lind, it's three beings in one body.
* TheVoiceless: To mortals. The angels can speak not only to their goddess hosts but also to one another. Inexperienced angels and goddesses have to communicate via gestures, though time makes the communication between the parts implicit, as they are one mind and one soul.


Banpei is a robot built by Skuld that resides in the Tarikihongan Temple. His original job was to guard the temple from the demon Mara. Programmed to be extremely territorial, Banpei develops a personality in which he gradually becomes more attached to the inhabitants of the temple that grows into an automatic, independent intelligence.

* AccidentalPervert: The main reason why Sigel doesn't want him close to her is that she finds his devotion to her creepy. It doesn't help that whenever she starts to mellow down, something happens that makes Banpei look like a pervert in Sigel's eyes.
* CrazyPrepared: Banpei arms himself with every possible weapon and upgrade available as soon as he hears Sigel in distress.
* CuteMachines
* JustAMachine: Personality-wise, Skuld argues that there is nothing in Banpei's programming that would have led him to fall in love with the automaton who would later be named Sigel. Belldandy proves her wrong.
* PygmalionPlot: With Sigel. When he begins longing for a more equal partner, he asks Skuld to give Sigel sentience; though Skuld makes it happen, it doesn't work very for him which leads to a...
* PygmalionSnapback: Sigel isn't very happy at Banpei's single-sided affections.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: Banpei is very feisty and emotional, even though he doesn't have facial expression.
* RobotBuddy: Due to Skuld's tinkering, Banpei can have an infinite array of upgrades and functions.
* SurveillanceDrone: His original work aside from guarding the temple.
* TalkingWithSigns / TheVoiceless: Invoked, but not with signs proper. Banpei can only communicate with gestures and doesn't have the capacity of speech, so he carries an erasable marker everywhere that he uses to draw facial expressions in his own face.


An automaton girl that Banpei finds while driving by the riverbank, becoming infatuated with her. Sigel is initally a "Greeting" robot that greets clients on a small locale, though Banpei eventually asks Skuld to give her sentience; however, Skuld forgets to program any friendship or kindness towards Banpei, which makes Sigel extremely wary and callous towards the robot (not that this prevents Banpei from trying).

* ClockworkCreature: Sigel is very human-like for an automaton.
* DamselInDistress: Sigel often finds herself in this situation much to her annoyance, as it means that she has to rely in Banpei's rescue.
* {{Fembot}} / RobotGirl: To Banpei's man-bot.
* TheLoad: Due to the limited features installed in her by Skuld compared to Banpei, Sigel tends to see herself this way. [[spoiler:In the end of the manga, she is left alone in the temple in a state of complete disrepair and she mentions this trope.]]
* {{Fauxshadowing}}: [[spoiler:Sigel doesn't get repaired at the end of of the manga after Lind's unwitting magic tampering.]]
* LoveImbuesLife: Subverted. This is what Banpei intended when Skuld gave sentience to Sigel, though it didn't turn the way he wanted; as such, Sigel does feel this way towards her main benefactor, Skuld.
* PygmalionPlot / PygmalionSnapback: With Banpei until she was given sentience by Skuld.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: She just might as well be a little girl other than her RocketPunch. This is the very reason why Dr. Morrow is interested in dissecting her to find out about her components and the nature of her bipedal locomotion (which is his main focus in robotics).
* RocketPunch: Sigel's signature offensive move; it's her signature move because it's her ''only move''. Predictably, she continuously complains to Skuld about her apparent lack of battle features.
* RollerbladeGood: Sigel's preferred method of locomotion. She has motorized rollers installed on her heels.
* SelfDestructMechanism: Subverted. Sigel threatens to self-destruct when Skuld tries to force her to like Banpei; though Skuld argues that it's an empty threat since she didn't install a sequence like that in Sigel, she eventually relents because Sigel is deadpan serious about not being forced.
* StubbornMule: Belldandy calls her out on her disdain towards Banpei, telling her there's no reason for her to hate someone that is utterly devoted to her.
* TorpedoTits: Subverted, though lampshaded; Sigel really expected to have these on her chest and Skuld promptly tells her that she didn't even remotely think of the possibility of installing those in Sigel. Instead, she has recharging plugs on her chest.
* {{Tsundere}}: Harsh as sandpaper towards Banpei when she's given sentience, though she slowly mellows out.
* [[spoiler:WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Due to Lind's witless magic, Sigel is left alone in the temple deformed by the wonky spells. This is never addressed again.]]
