->'''Zero''': ''"The only ones who should kill are those who are prepared to be killed! Wherever oppressors abuse their power by attacking those who are powerless, we shall appear again, no matter how mighty or formidable our foe may be! Those of you with power, fear us!

The character sheet for the Black Knights of ''Anime/CodeGeass''.

[[folder:Tropes that apply to most members]]
* TheAlliance: The Black Knights is made up of former Japanese factions (Resistance, Japan Liberation Front, Kyoto House), as well as various members who were unaffiliated.
* AntiHeroTeam: They are usually not as extreme as Lelouch, but continue to use terrorism. You could argue that they were, originally at least, more {{unscrupulous hero}}es, given that it's implied that, like other resistance groups, they weren't too picky about endangering civilians (at least, not Britannian civilians) originally. Ironically, it was only when Lelouch came along that they softened.
* BridgeBunnies: Futaba, Hinata and Minase.
* DarkIsNotEvil: They are among the heroes of the story.
* GoodIsNotNice: While they might not be as evil as Britannia they aren't completely innocent rebels.
* HeroWithBadPublicity: Heroes to the Japanese and all other non-Britannia nations, terrorists to Britannia.
* LaResistance: They provide the opposing force to Britannia and it's armies. [[spoiler:At the end of the series they free Japan, and cripple Britannia leaving the Black Knights the main source of military power left in the world.]]
* MultinationalTeam: The overwhelming majority of members are Japanese, as one could expect. However, members of other nationalities, even Britannians, can be found amongst their ranks.
* OccupiersOutOfOurCountry: One of their goals is to push the Britanian military out of Japan.
%%%* {{Rebellious Rebel}}s
* TheTeam: The top brass:
** TheLeader / BigGood - Zero, (Ohgi was the original leader before he came.)
** TheLancer - C.C (the closest person to Zero) Toudou (formal second in command)
** TheBigGuy - Kallen (greatest pilot with the most powerful frame)
** TheSmartGuy - Rakshata (head of R&D)
** TheFace: Diethard (PR guy), Kaguya (non-combatant politician)
** TheChick - Kaguya (most feminine of the group) claims to be Zero's wife, and is one of the key affiliated political figureheads.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Yoshitaka and Minami. Yoshida was the third but he died during the Black Rebellion.
* TurnCoat: Most of the members [[spoiler:when they turn on Zero in hopes of getting Japan back as of Turn 19. They aren't joining Britannia full-stop, mind, but they are siding with Schneizel over Lelouch, and without consent of the UFN, which includes Kaguya.]]
* YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters: The purpose of their group is rebellion against Britannia's oppression. Although Britannia doesn't see them any differently from the other resistance groups that do indeed engage in terrorism, Zero denounces such tactics ("Britannia will not fall to terrorism; it's just childish nonsense!"). Instead, they are more like vigilantes with an army.

[[folder:Rakshata Chawla]]
-->'''Voiced by''': Creator/MasayoKurata (Japanese), Creator/LauraBailey (English)

[[folder:Kaguya Sumeragi]]
-->'''Voiced by''': Creator/MikaKanai (Japanese), Creator/StephanieSheh (English)

->''"It's a matter of love!"''

Kaguya Sumeragi (皇 神楽耶, Sumeragi Kaguya), fourteen years old (fifteen in [[OddlyNamedSequel R2]]), is the young head mistress of the Kyōto House and a supporter of the Black Knights. She is also a close friend of Empress Tianzi of China. Despite her age and physique, she possesses a strong will and is highly influential amongst the Houses. Kaguya has admired Zero since his debut, and wishes to have his hand in marriage.
* AllThereInTheManual: Her ForgottenFirstMeeting with Lelouch only appears in the AudioPlay "Kaguya Sumeragi, Deceived by a Demon" (''Sumeragi Kaguya Oni Au'').
* AnnoyingLaugh: Used to have one as a kid, especially when pulling pranks on Suzaku.
* ArrangedMarriage: Was to be engaged to her cousin Suzaku.
* BigEyesLittleEyes: Just look at those enormous peepers. In this regard, she almost rivals {{Wide Eyed Idealist}}s Princess Euphemia and Shirley Fenette.
%%* BlueBlood
%%* TheChessmaster
* CovertPervert: Hinted as such. Besides having absolutely no problem with the (fake) rumors of Zero sleeping around and even going as far as to suggest a MarryThemAll scenario for him involving Kallen, C.C. and herself, there's that eyebrow-raising line from the [[WhatCouldHaveBeen scrapped script]] of first episode of ''R2'':
-->'''Zero:''' Gentlepeople of the Six Houses, I beseech you to bring inspiration to the Japanese people.\\
'''Kaguya:''' Well, that was awfully formal! As your future wife, I wouldn't mind if you were a little more commanding~♪
* EverythingsSparklyWithJewelry: Her diadem. (See also HairDecorations, below.)
* TheFace: Invoked in her bid to convince Zero to marry her: "You'll need a public face, right?"
* FanGirl: Of Zero.
* ForgottenFirstMeeting: PlayedWith. Kaguya remembers her first meeting with Lelouch when they were kids, which is an important moment of her past, but she never realized it was him and instead mistook him for an "oni." See ReformedBully below for details.
* GenkiGirl: Downplayed but it's there.
%%* GreenEyes
* HairDecorations: Her diadem. (See also EverythingsSparklyWithJewelry, above.)
* HimeCut: As the young head mistress of the Kyōto House, her hair is styled in the traditional Japanese manner.
* ImprobableAge: She's the chairwoman of the United Federation of Nations at 15.
* KissingCousins: Was to be engaged to her cousin Suzaku.
* MarryThemAll: Not only is she comfortable sharing Zero with Kallen and C.C., she ''suggested it''. "We are Zero's Three Court Ladies."
* MeaningfulName: Kaguya is the name of the eponymous character from an old Japanese folk tale [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tale_of_the_Bamboo_Cutter "Princess Kaguya," also known as "The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter."]]
* TheOjou: The most traditionally Japanese example in the series.
* OlderThanTheyLook: She's a teenager, but in many shots she could easily pass for a small child. It's ironic, since she's as smart and savvy as any of the adults around her.
* PluckyGirl
* PolitenessJudo: The cuteness helps, and she shrewdly works it like a politician.
* PrecociousCrush: Mostly subverted. Zero's rank and charisma make him seem much older than Kaguya, but they are fairly close in age.
* RapunzelHair
* ReformedBully: Kaguya used to be a mean-spirited SpoiledBrat that picked on her cousin Suzaku because he didn't fight back. That changed one day when she was seven and got lost in the forest neighboring the Kururugi Shrine where she ran into a figure that she mistook for the "oni" the grown-ups warned her about (ostensibly to [[ScareEmStraight prevent exactly that from happening]]). The "demon" turned out to be a 10-year-old Lelouch who played along with her misconception and guided her back home, but not without calmly and systematically [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech picking apart]] her princess-like self-centeredness on their way there, prompting a HeelRealization on her.
* TheSmartGuy
* SpoiledBrat: Used to be one prior to the start of the series, but grew out of it. See ReformedBully above.
* TeenGenius
* TokenMiniMoe: Slightly old for the part, but then she's one of those OlderThanTheyLook.
* TVGenius
* UndyingLoyalty:
** Lelouch's chart shows that her loyalty is among the highest in his organization.
** Oddly enough this is inverted in ''Lelouch of the Rebellion'' manga, where she [[spoiler:takes control of the organization after Suzaku's nuking of Tokyo and ends up playing the roles of both [[InspectorJavert Ohgi]] and [[TreacheryCoverup Diethard]] in the Black Knights' betrayal of Lelouch]], contrary to her wiser and more loyal anime self.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: On Lelouch's [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/codegeass/images/9/97/Black_Knights_Core_Members.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20080725053212 chart]] ranking the overall value of the top members of the Black Knights, she was second only to Toudoh despite having no combat ability. (Granted, most of it comes from full Charisma and very high Loyalty, but she still ties for second in Intelligence.)

[[folder:Shinichirō Tamaki]]
-->'''Voiced by''': Creator/KazunariTanaka (Japanese), Creator/NobuyukiHiyama (Movie Trilogy, Japanese), Creator/MichaelLindsay (English)

->''"I'm Zero's best buddy!"''

Shinichirō Tamaki (玉城 真一郎, Tamaki Shin'ichirō), twenty-four years old (twenty-five in ''R2''), and is the leader of the second special squadron of the Black Knights. He is a hot-headed and carefree person, quick to cheer others on when not doing the fighting but rash and impulsive when he's on the front lines. His rashness is shown to border on recklessness, as he orders the execution of the Ashford Academy student council against Zero's wishes, though extenuating circumstances prevent his orders from being carried out. He pilots a standard Knightmare Frame during battles, though he rarely lasts long before being forced to eject.
* AscendedExtra: He's playable in ''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Z}}2'', where his Burai can resupply allied units.
* BrickJoke: Remember when Tamaki was harassing Zero about giving him an official position in the Black Knights during R2? Well, it takes a few episodes of waiting and a sharp eye during the UNF ratification ceremony, but we finally find out what position he got: [[spoiler:Internal Cleaning Supporter. Yup, he's a glorified janitor.]]
* ButtMonkey: In Lelouch's personal stats for the Black Knights, Tamaki comes out with the lowest rankings at 40, ten in each category (Intelligence, Combat Ability, Charisma, and Loyalty). Note that, with the exception of non-combatants, who have no Combat Ability score, and Nagisa Chiba, who ties for Loyalty, his scores are worse than any other member. Moreover, every other member ranks ''at least'' past 150, if just barely in some cases. While at first this might seem a joke at his expense, it fits if you take a look at his track record over the course of the show.
** Consider also that C. C., who has loved grilling him from time to time, composed that list.
* ChewToy
* TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong: [[spoiler:Argues that the recording Schneizel has presented could have been faked. [[NoRespectGuy Naturally, no one listens.]]]]
* DelinquentHair: Not a delinquent per se, but fits the archetype somewhat and has the red hair typical to it.
* TheEveryman: Played straighter in his case than in Ohgi's. Tamaki mirrors the voice of the people while Ohgi is more levelheaded and reasonable.
* FaceHeelRevolvingDoor: PlayedForLaughs, with his level of support of Lelouch in later stages of R2.
* FearlessFool: Lapses into this. His competence [[{{Understatement}} doesn't quite]] match his ego, but he's always eager to be in the line of fire.
%%* FieryRedhead
* {{Flanderization}}: Back in R1, though still quite TheFool, he was much more thoughtful. He even made several excellent points in Zero's defense whenever the original Knights discussed their leader's motivations. Come R2, he's gotten considerably more ridiculous and incompetent, to the point of flip flopping his stance on Zero at the drop of a hat.
* TheFool: Oddly, this has made him an EnsembleDarkhorse and one of the few Black Knights who retain their popularity. [[spoiler:He even manages to survive his direct, face-to-face encounter with Suzaku's [[MidSeasonUpgrade Lancelot Albion]] in his grunt mech, even getting in a good line (''"Even I have my pride, you know!"'') before he had to eject from his exploding Knightmare.]]
%%* HotBlooded
%%* IdiotHero
%%* IdiotHoudini
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He can be a self absorbed ass who thinks too highly of himself, but he is fighting for Japan's liberation and he does show a great deal of care for his fellow Black Knights.
%%* LeeroyJenkins
%%* PermaStubble
%%* SarcasticDevotee
* UndyingLoyalty: Like him or hate him, Tamaki [[CharacterDevelopment eventually came to be one of Zero's greatest supporters.]] [[spoiler:Even after the Black Knights turn on Zero after figuring out his identity as Lelouch, Tamaki had some guilt about participating in the betrayal. When the time comes for the Black Knights and Schneizel's forces to go against Emperor Lelouch, Tamaki seems depressed by the fact that they have to kill Lelouch.]]
** In fact, it should be noted that getting him to [[spoiler:betray Zero]] took nothing less then [[spoiler:undeniable evidence (albeit warped and taken COMPLETELY out of context- Tamaki had no way of knowing about Lelouch's guilt complex or that the Euphinator incident was an accident) that Zero personally orchestrated the massacre of countless innocent Japanese in order to prevent a program that might have successfully brought peace and freedom to the Japanese people.]]

[[folder:Kaname Ohgi]]
-->'''Voiced by''': Creator/MitsuakiMadono (Japanese), Creator/KirkThornton (English)

->''"Someone who feels hate must also feel sadness."''

Twenty-six years old (twenty-seven in ''R2''), Ohgi used to be a school teacher before he became the leader of a Japanese resistance cell, having taken over after the death of Kallen Kozuki's older brother Naoto. Or at least, Ohgi ''was'' the leader, until Zero butts in.
* AmbiguouslyJewish: He has curly hair and his casual clothes have a Star of David on them.
* AntiHero: KnightInSourArmor -> UnscrupulousHero (with [[spoiler:the betrayal]]).
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: A man wearing a yellow Star of David on his jacket lives in a rundown ghetto in a city conquered by a fascistic government which considers his people subhuman. [[TheHolocaust When did that ever happen before?]]
* TheDulcineaEffect: He falls hard for Villetta when he finds her.
* ElephantInTheLivingRoom: Neither his affair with Villetta, [[spoiler:nor his nearly allowing Kallen to be gunned down on account of the attempt to execute Lelouch, or that [[KangarooCourt he might have been too rash about jumping to conclusions on Lelouch]]]], are put into question.
%%* TheEveryman:
* HappilyMarried: [[spoiler:To Villetta Nu, at the end of the series.]]
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Not only does he trust Viletta [[spoiler: he just as quickly trusts ''[[DevilInPlainSight Schneizel]]'' when he shows up.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: Despite him quickly saying that Zero has the right to his SecretIdentity, he's also the first one to jump at a chance to unmask him, to the point of bringing in the wounded Viletta to find out who he is.
%%* IdiotHoudini
* InspectorJavert: [[spoiler:When he chases Lelouch all the way up to the latter's disappearance into the Sword of Akasha following the betrayal.]]
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:He was HappilyMarried by the end of ''Code Geass'' -- and was even elected Prime Minister, despite the numerous questionable decisions he made in the latter half of the second season. See above entries.]]
* LimaSyndrome: [[spoiler:At first he intends to interrogate Villetta after she recovers from her amnesia, but he ends up falling for her.]]
* LivingWithTheVillain: Lives with Villetta Nu for quite some time while she's lost her memory after being shot by Shirley.
* LoveMakesYouCrazy: [[FridgeBrilliance One could argue that]] he gets so obsessed with Villetta, that when [[spoiler:she provides evidence that Zero has a supernatural mind control power that he may or may not be using on them]], it possibly caused him to snap over [[spoiler:Zero apparently using them for his own selfish desires [[RevengeBeforeReason and should pay for it]]]]. 'Wouldn't be the first time [[SanitySlippage someone]] [[BreakTheCutie in]] [[GoMadFromTheRevelation this]] [[FreakOut show]] [[VillainousBreakdown went]] [[LaughingMad nuts]].
* LoveMakesYouDumb: Started out as the OnlySaneMan, only to go south after he met Villetta.
* LoveMartyr: For Viletta, big time.
* TheMedic: His Burai can repair allies in ''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Z}}2''. Tamaki's version has the resupply module instead.
* NeverMyFault: Not entirely at fault, but still never does take any appropriate responsibility for his foibles.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: One might say he [[spoiler:[[IncrediblyLamePun broke Zero]]]].
** One can also blame Ohgi for hiding Villeta, since when she recovered her memories, she went straight for Ohgi and tried to kill him. This caused chaos in the Black Knights command center, and pulled the guards outside the student council away, which in turn let them try to escape, leaving Nunally open to capture by VV, which made Zero abandon his army. Though unintentional, Ohgi's little act of treason on the docks set in motion the ultimate failure of the Black Rebellion.
* RomanticLoveIsMoreImportant: Goes AWOL to meet Villetta, even though she is planning on killing him.
* StarCrossedLovers: With [[spoiler:Villetta, up until Turn 19]].
* TheStoolPigeon
* TakingTheBullet: He saved Villetta from Sayoko by taking the daggers which were meant for her.
* TreacheryCoverup: Attempts to cover up the betrayal against Lelouch.
* UnexplainedRecovery: He got stabbed by Sayoko's daggers and fell off a cliff in R2 15. He comes back with no sign of injuries later. The incident is never mentioned again.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Hoo boy. Let's just say for starters that we may have been looking at a very different ending, and one that would have ben more preferable for many, if not for [[spoiler:the betrayal]].

[[folder:Diethard Ried]]
-->'''Voiced by''': Creator/JojiNakata (Japanese), Creator/JamiesonPrice (English)

->''"Zero's arrival was like the arrival of a new age unfolding before my eyes!"''

Britannian TV producer who joined the Black Knights not because he believed in their cause but because he worshiped Zero. He was in charge of the Black Knights information, espionage, and public relations.
* AntiHero
* AscendedFanboy: His reaction to Zero was virtually the opposite of how most Britannians view him, having admired him on an obsessive level. Naturally, he joined the Black Knights as soon as he was able.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Switching to whichever side entertains him the most, apparently.
* TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong: [[spoiler:Is against listening to Schneizel's testimonies and demands towards turning over Zero. The Black Knights end up agreeing with Schneizel anyway, and Diethard has a few bruises to show for his attempt to coax loyalty out of a temporary AWOL Ohgi, who he considers miscast as the role of leader. Predictably, he seizes the opportunity to jump on board with Schneizel, who he finds himself impressed by.]]
* TheFace: Serves as The Black Knight's PR guy.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: You'd be hard pressed to find someone in the series who genuinely likes and/or trusts Diethard (though he and Rakshata seem to get along well enough when they work together in Turn 22). Most of the other Black Knights are wary of him because he's Britannian and Lelouch sees him as a means to an end, nothing more. [[spoiler:It certainly doesn't help that he jumps ship once things start to look bad]].
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor
* {{Jerkass}}
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:Shot by a Geass-controlled Schneizel (who he'd turned to), and despite requesting it as a Dying Wish, denied the chance to be ever Geassed by Lelouch, who simply told Diethard he was "not even worth it".]]
* TheMole: He began feeding the Black Knights information on Britannian movements before he joined them officially.
* NominalHero: The only member with little to no regard for righteousness.
* PsychoSupporter: He didn't join the Black Knights because he truly believed in their cause, but because they were ''epic''. And he was bored.
* SmugSnake
* TheStoic: Most of the time.
** NotSoStoic: Often when Zero is involved.
* StrawFan: Like Kallen, he pledged undying loyalty to Zero and viewed him as a source of admiration and inspiration. Yet...
* TokenEnemyMinority: He's Britannian and is a high-ranking member of the The Black Knights, the rebellion that's trying to defeat Britannia.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Only the Emperor and he rejoiced when the [[spoiler:Special Administrative Zone]] Massacre began. And Diethard thought that Zero had wanted it.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: In the CompilationMovie, he's the one who shoots Viletta and causes her amnesia in order to get rid of whatever evidence she may have against Zero.

[[folder:Kyoshiro Tohdoh]]
-->'''Voiced by''': Yuji Takada (Japanese), Creator/SteveBlum (English)

->''"Win or lose you must give it your all. It is the same for men and nations!"''

A 37-year old colonel from the Japan Liberation Front, he is renowned as "''Tohdoh of Miracles''" because of his famous miracle at Itsukushima where he caused the invading Britannian army their only defeat, ''without'' the use of any knightmares. In addition to his skill at strategic planning, he's a supreme knightmare pilot. Joins the Black Knights along with the Four Holy Swords after being rescued from prison(Having been captured after the death of his superior, General Katase), becoming field commander of the Black Knights' military forces.
* TheAce: Though not to Xingke's extent, he's still a great strategist and a very talented pilot. In Lelouch's stats for the Black Knights, he has the highest total stats of all of them, with 345. In comparison, the second-highest score is Kaguya, with 270.
* BadassNormal: One of the best strategists in the world and a major threat on the battlefield due to his immense skill as a Knightmare pilot despite having a mid-tier Frame (The most powerful Knightmare he gets to use is the Zangetsu which, while powerful, does not match up to the Rounds Customs or the Lancelot), despite having no special traits besides having more combat experience than 90% of the show´s combatants.
* BadassTeacher: This is the guy who made Suzaku into the warrior he is today.
* BadassLongcoat
* BigOlEyebrows
* ChainsawGood: Like the Four Holy Blades, he too used a chainsaw katana as his knightmare's weapon. He later upgrades to a chain sword equipped with rocket thrusters.
* ColonelBadass
* CombatPragmatist: Tohdoh tends to aim for the enemy's flight systems and cockpits instead of the Knightmares themselves whenever he is piloting one himself.
* FlamingSword: Variation once he gets his own custom knightmare, in that the knightmare's weapon is a katana equipped with rocket thrusters.
* ICanStillFight: After being heavily injured during the finale, he tries to return to the battle, but Chiba attemps to stop him. She eventually lets him go, but he immediately collapses.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Always carries around a sheathed katana, though he never uses it.
* NoodleIncident: The Miracle of Itsukushima.
* ObliviousToLove: Seemingly unaware of Chiba's crush on him.
* RedBaron: Tohdoh of Miracles.
* {{Samurai}}: As with the rest of the JLF, he follows the Bushido code. Tohdoh himself taught Suzaku in this manner when the latter was young.
* SternTeacher: He was Suzaku's sensei when he was a child, and if the flashback with him is any indication, he was ''not'' a soft one.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Tohdoh/Toudou.
* TheStoic
* TrainingFromHell: He appear to be very strict teacher and subjected Suzaku to this as a child. It ''worked'' though.

The Japan Liberation Front's most powerful soldiers led by Tohdoh. After Tohdoh is captured by the Britannians, they seek out the Black Knights for aid in rescuing him. They subsequently join fully with the Black Knights after Tohdoh does.
* CannotSpitItOut: Chiba's crush on Tohdoh. [[EveryoneCanSeeIt Not exactly a secret among the Black Knights, though]].
* ChainsawGood: Their knightmares' signature weapons are chainsaw [[KatanasAreJustBetter katanas]].
* DwindlingParty: [[spoiler:Beginning in R2 they begin to drop. First Urabe (see heroic sacrifice below), then Senba is killed by Gino and finally Asahina dies when the first FLEIJA is detonated. This leaves just Chiba out of the four alive by the end.]]

* InTheBack: [[spoiler:Senba is stabbed in the back through his knightmare by Gino.]]
* IResembleThatRemark: Asahina gets angry when Rolo questions his loyalty to Zero, suggesting this is why he doesn't rank higher among the Black Knights. [[spoiler:Asahina is the first Black Knight who betrays Zero (a full episode before the rest of them do), and Rolo is one of the only characters who stays loyal.]]
* LadyOfWar: Chiba.

* OldSoldier: Senba.
* {{Samurai}}: As with the rest of the JLF, they tend to follow the Bushido code.
* SourSupporter: Both Asahina and Chiba become highly critical of Zero following the Black Rebellion. They have the lowest loyalty scores among the knights according to the ratings from Turn 13.
** Ironically Urabe went in the opposite direction, [[spoiler:praising Lelouch, even as for just being a high school student, for what he did as Zero before his HeroicSacrifice]].
* StraightGay: Strongly hinted to be the case with Asahina, at least according C.C. in ''Turn 12.59'' Picture Drama.
