!The Main Party
[[folder: Dai]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/ToshikoFujita
* BadassAdorable: He is a cute, friendly, energetic kid who can take on monsters, armored warriors and giants.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Happens very rarely, but he ''does'' become less nice when he uses his full strength.
* BookDumb: There's a small throwaway gag where Dai has trouble reading and has to ask someone else to do it.
* ChromaticArrangement: He mainly wears blue.
* DorkKnight: He ''did'' grow up on an island inhabited by monsters. This adds to his charm even in-universe, though.
* {{Expy}}: Dai looks a lot like how Gohan was as a kid in Dragon Ball Z during the Android Saga.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Manages to even befriend an item.
* HappilyAdopted: His adoptive grandfather Brass raised him as well as any family could have. Dai never stops loving him, [[spoiler:even after meeting his real family]].
* TheHero: Expecially notable, since "hero" is a character class in-universe.
* HeroesPreferSwords: He can use other kinds of weapons, but swords are his favorites.
* HumanMomNonHumanDad: His mother was a regular human, while is father is [[spoiler:an human-dragon-demon hybrid]].
* HumbleHero: Even when the whole world starts relying on him, Dai never gets conceited. He also has no problems with [[HeroicWannabe Nova calling himself "the true hero"]].
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: "Purity" is his trademark as a disciple of Avan.
* KidHero: Definitely the youngest of the main cast.
* LastOfHisKind: Normally, when he dies a replacement would be born somewhere. [[spoiler:Now that the mother dragon can't birth Dragon Knights anymore, unless Dai chooses to have children, he'll be the last dragon knight]].
* MagicKnight: In-universe, "heroes" can use both weapons and magic. Dai finds a way to use both at the same time.
* MosesInTheBulRushes: He is the son of [[spoiler:a human-demon-dragon hybrid created by the gods themselves to fight evil]].
* NiceGuy: Treating everybody (and everything) nicely is even recognized in-universe as the source of his strength.
* PowerGlows: When he activates his "draconic aura", his body gets visibly covered by energy.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: The smallest of the main characters, and the most powerful.
* RaisedByWolves: He grew up in Monster Island. Luckily the Demon King was already dead by the time he ended up there, so the monsters weren't actually evil.
* SleevesAreForWimps: He has several outfits, none of which include sleeves.
* XMarksTheHero: Has a X-shaped scar on his cheek.

[[folder: Pop]]
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Manages to determine the weaknesses in Vearn's attacks by observing them a few times. He can also copy his enemies attacks after seeing them in action.
* ButtMonkey: When a scene needs a character to fall on his face, Pop will be that character.
* CantCatchUp: Notably averted. He remains entirely relevant until the very end.
* ChivalrousPervert: He "accidentally" gropes Maam and risks his life to help her with about the same frequency.
* ChromaticArrangement: He mainly wears green.
* CowardlyLion: Take a shot for how many times Pop abandoned the team out of fear only to come back or be revealed to have been pretending.
* {{Determinator}}: Every major character is one, but Pop manages to [[spoiler:''force his dead body to use a spell while his soul is going towards the other world'']].
* {{Deuteragonist}}: He gets about as much focus as Dai. ''Very'' noticeable in the final battle.
* GlassCannon: Very noticeable during the fights against the Royal Guard. Pop could end the fight with a single spell, but the others have to protect him and give him the chance to use it.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Even after overcoming his inferiority complex, he basically keeps viewing himself as the weakest and most disposable member of the main party. It causes problems as he constantly pulls dangerous suicidal stunts.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: The "jerk" part is directly related to his lack of confidence.
* MadeOfIron: Even without specific combat training, Pop has survived things that would kill most normal people.
* MagicStaff: His weapon of choice.
* TheSmartGuy: His second mentor explicitly tells him that every group needs a level-headed schemer to survive, and that he ''has'' to become his group's one.
* SquishyWizard: Out of all of Dai's team, Pop [[GlassCannon packs the most power but is the most vulnerable to a hit]]. Dai and Crocodine aren't human and can tank hits, Hyunkel with his armor has the highest defense of the team and Leona and Marm can heal. Mitigated when [[spoiler: he becomes a Sage and learns healing spells]].
* SurpassedTheTeacher: Surpasses both Avan and Matoriv.
* TeamDad: If the name wasn't a giveaway. Pop acts as the voice of reason and caution for his more reckless and HotBlooded team members. He also pulls a lot of PapaWolf moments, protective as he is of Maamu, Dai and Merle.
* TookALevelInBadass: Goes from a slightly incompetent magician to a very competent magician, to inheriting the "Archmage" title from Matoriv, to [[spoiler: easily destroying Vearn's ultimate attack, [[{{Troll}} just to mess with him]] with '''two fingers'''.]]

[[folder: Maamu]]
!!!Voiced by: Creator/MinaTominaga
* AllLovingHero: As much as Dai. She's the first person to feel compassion for Hyunkel (and other villains), she delivers multiple [[CoolDownHug cool down hugs]]. There's a reason she's the soul of charity.
* ActionGirl: One of the strongest front-line fighters of the team.
* AnimeChineseGirl: Her appearance as a fighter is exactly this sterotype.
* BadassAdorable: She's ''very'' strong physically, but the main strength of her soul is "charity".
* BareFistedMonk: After TakingALevelInBadass.
* BoobsOfSteel: Both Maamu and Leona are pretty well endowed but Maamu's tend to be more obvious, partly because she wears tighter clothes.
* ChromaticArrangement: Pink, both in hair and outfits.
* CuteBruiser: Outside of battle she's a cute, gentle and caring girl.
* TheGunslinger: Until her gun breaks.
* HairTriggerTemper: Mostly towards Pop, who really likes teasing her.
* KungFuWizard: Maam can use both healing spells and martial arts. She also combines the two to make her attacks more devastating.
* SleevesAreForWimps: Her monk outfit.
* ShesGotLegs: Her monk outfit and armor don't include pants of any sort.
* TeamMom: Expecially towards Hyunkel. She also can't (yet) return Pop's love because she feels like a mom/older sister to everybody on her team.
* {{Tomboy}}: Strangely, this is more pronounced ''before'' she actually becomes a fighter.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The Tomboy to Merle's GirlyGirl.
* TookALevelInBadass: Went from being TheGunslinger to a full on ActionGirl.
* {{Tsundere}}: To Pop.

[[folder: Leona]]
* BlingOfWar: Somehow appropriately, since she's more a leader than a fighter.
* TheChick: Out of the five disciples, she specializes in healing spells and anti-evil spells instead of physical combat, which also makes her the weakest in that regard.
* CombatMedic: Since healing spells need her to touch the target, she needs to be on the front line.
* DamselInDistress: During the Flazzard arc, and when she gets captured by the core of the Vearn Palace.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: She's a princess, one of the main party, and the main character's LoveInterest. Though with her father and mother dead (her father died in the monster invasion and her mother years before), she should be the Queen of Papunika.
* TheFace: As a very charismatic leader (she's basically a mini-Flora), Leona serves as this in several situations.
* FilleFatale: She tries to use her charms to get what she wants in several situations.
* PluckyGirl: Probably the most positive and upbeat of the five disciples. She has to be, since her role is TheHeart and TheFace of the group.
%%%* RoyalBrat: She [[CharacterDevelopment gets better]] after her introduction arc.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: She does her best to unite the forces of the main kingdoms against the demon army, and fights on the front line during the last assault.
* {{Tsundere}}: To Dai, at the very beginning.
* ZettaiRyouiki: She often wears a miniskirt with long socks.

[[folder: Hyunkel]]
* TheAtoner: Is ordered by Princess Leona into becoming this post HeelFaceTurn.
* {{Bishonen}}: The most good-looking of the heroes.
* BladeOnAStick: After losing his CoolSword, he retrains himself from scratch as a lancer.
* CastingAShadow: Has learned to manipulate dark energy from Myst-Vearn, [[spoiler:though he eventually stops using this skill]].
* CoolSword: At the beginning, he's mainly a swordsman.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Both on the defeating and defeated end of this.
* {{Determinator}}: Every main character in the series is pretty much this, but of note is his first use of Grand Cross, converting his full store of fighting spirit into offensive power as a last stand, and nearly draining himself to death. This left him in a very precarious position, ripe for the killing by an EvilGloating Hadler pointing out he doesn't even have the energy left to move, but the very last dregs of his fighting spirit managed to will his sword into Hadler's heart, dealing him a lethal wound (though DeathIsCheap in Hadler's case). Hadler acknowledges his {{Determinator}} credentials with his dying breath.
* DrivenToVillainy: First by his father's death, then by [[EvilMentor Myst-Vearn's training]].
* HappilyAdopted: His father was a pretty nice guy, for a skeleton.
* HeelFaceTurn: Post DefeatEqualsFriendship.
* HonorBeforeReason: Hyunkel falls into this occasionally. He insists on taking out Baran's subordinates in a fair fight and uses a spear even though he's much more effective with a sword.
* TheLancer: Post HeelFaceTurn.
* MasterSwordsman: Lon Berk mentions that Hyunkel would be his equal with a sword and that [[IAmNotLeftHanded he's hobbling himself with a spear.]]
* NotSoDifferent: Even when they're enemies, Dai can't bring himself to hate Hyunkel because of this.
* SpikesOfVillainy: His first armor.
* TinTyrant: Before HeelFaceTurn.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Before HeelFaceTurn.
* WouldntHitAGirl: His PetTheDog moment before his HeelFaceTurn has him treat Maamu respectfully.

[[folder: Crocodine]]
* AnAxeToGrind: His main weapon.
* BloodKnight: Likes to fight a worthy opponent.
* BoisterousBruiser: Post HeelFaceTurn.
* TheBeastmaster: Was the leader of the Beast Army.
* TheBigGuy: Post HeelFaceTurn.
* CantCatchUp: After his HeelFaceTurn he's Dai's strongest ally. By the finale, the rest of the main team has surpassed him by far, though he's still a solid fighter.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Has an HeelFaceTurn after being defeated by Dai.
* EyeScream: Due to Dai's attack.
* GentleGiant: Post HeelFaceTurn. More assertive than average, though.
* HonorBeforeReason: By far, the most honorable of the Six Generals.
* LargeHam: Especially in the anime.
* ManlyTears: ''Very'' often, expecially when Hyunkel is involved.
* MonsterKnight: A crocodile knight that values honor.
* NiceGuy: He develops several [[OddFriendship Odd Friendships]] after his HeelFaceTurn.
* NobleDemon: Before his HeelFaceTurn.
* ScarsAreForever: After Dai scarred his face.
* TheWorfEffect:
** He's strong, but always loses to relevant opponents... [[spoiler: except Zaboera]].
** Even his axe gets routinely cracked or destroyed to show just how tough the opponent's defense is.

[[folder: Aban]]
* TheAce: At the beginning, he's considered the best at everything. [[spoiler: Subverted at the end, since every single one of his disciples has become way stronger than him in his or her speciality.]]
* BackForTheFinale: He disappears for most of the main plot...[[spoiler: but just before the final battle, the heroes discover he was NotQuiteDead.]]
* BewareTheSillyOnes: He hides his intelligence and his skills behind his goofiness.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: He's extremely competent in pretty much everything, and does his best to not show it.
* CrazyPrepared: He always seem to have the right magic item with him.
* DisneyDeath: His HeroicSacrifice against Hadler is the climax of the first real PlotArc. [[spoiler:Turns out, he wasn't dead at all]].
* TheDreaded: Is this to Vearn and Kill-Vearn, and many of their underlings.
** To put things in perspective : Vearn's first order to Hadler in the plot was explicitely to kill Avan, before starting anything else, and Hadler getting rid of him was judged enough of a worthy accomplishment that he was granted a consequential PowerUp.
** When Hadler screwed up killing Avan's disciples several times, and commiting a major screwup [[spoiler: with his plotting to keep his position, and not disclosing vital information such as Dai being a Dragon Knight, eventually leading to Baran's (the strongest General by far) betrayal and potential threat towards Vearn]], he is on the verge of a YouHaveFailedMe scenario, yet [[PragmaticVillainy Vearn]] still commends Hadler's achievement in killing Avan, considering it worthy enough that he grants him a final chance and an eventual pardon. For Hadler, defeating Avan was the gift that kept on giving.
** [[spoiler: When it is revealed that he actually did not die at all, everyone in the room [[DidNotSeeThatComing observing the scene]] goes [[OhCrap dead silent]], including the [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness usually wise-cracking Kill-Vearn]], who promptly switches to a no-nonsense mindset, going after him relentlessly, undergoing EvilMakeOver to drive the point home that he is taking him very seriously after getting his smiling mask broken, and pulling every nasty trick in the book to try to get rid of him for good, because he is THAT [[SpannerInTheWorks unpredictable]]. THIS is how feared he is by Vearn and his associates, as a mere human.]]
* EccentricMentor: Being a BunnyEarsLawyer and TheMentor at the same time, he ends up as this.
* GratuitousEnglish: Part of his ObfuscatingStupidity.
* GratuitousFrench: Part of his ObfuscatingStupidity.
* HappilyMarried: Implied at the end: [[spoiler:he is shown ruling Carl with Flora]].
* HeroOfAnotherStory: He was the hero who defeated Hadler the first time. At the time of the story, he's the mentor.
* HeroicSacrifice: He uses a suicide spell to try to protect his disciples from Hadler. [[spoiler: Subverted: it is later revealed that he survived the blast]].
* MagicKnight: Very proficient in both physical combat and various kinds of magic.
* MasterSwordsman: He has no superhuman strength, speed or endurance, but he ''does'' have absolutely flawless technique.
* MentorOccupationalHazard: He's forced to [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifice himself]] before he can complete Dai's training. [[spoiler: Subverted: he actually survived and went into hiding]].
* NerdGlasses: Given to him by Flora. They help him [[ObfuscatingStupidity hide his intelligence]].
* NotQuiteDead: Normally, the Megante spell kills the user. [[spoiler:Without knowing, Avan had just the right magic amulet to survive it]].
* ObfuscatingStupidity: He likes to keep his skills and intelligence hidden, for various reasons.
* ThePaladin: Fights for good? Check. Swordmanship skills? Check. Use of defensive White Magic? Check! Aban's a more eccentric version but fits the archetype nevertheless.
* PassingTheTorch: To his disciples and their allies.
* RedIsHeroic: His standard outfit.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: Occasionally when he's about to get serious.
* SenselessSacrifice: He gives his life to kill Hadler, but the latter survives the attack with no major damage. [[spoiler: Subverted in that he survived the blast as well.]]
* SupremeChef: When he's not fighting demons or chasing butterflies, he's teaching the castle cooks how to cook.
* TakingYouWithMe: Tries this on Hadler, but it fails. [[spoiler: Subverted in that he survives as well.]]
* TricksterMentor:
** He'd rather make his disciples figure out how to use new skills themselves than explain them the details.
** [[spoiler: One of the reasons he doesn't tell Dai and Pop he's not dead is that he thinks they would subconsciously rely on him and stunt their own growth.]]

[[folder: Queen Flora]]
* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Nobody is ever shown disagreeing with her.
* BalconySpeech: Needed to bring humanity to raise again when [[spoiler:Dai seems dead and all hope seems lost]].
* TheHighQueen: A strong, dignified and determined woman.
* LadyOfWar: When necessary, she can [[WhipItGood bring out her whip]] and kill some monsters.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: She does everything she can to support the heroes, aware they are the only ones that can actually defeat Vearn.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: While the heroes fight on the front line, she helps gather all the remaining forces of humanity.
* TookALevelInBadass: In the prequel story, she leaves everything to Aban. In the present, she actively contributes to saving the world.
* {{Tsundere}}: Makes a couple of passive aggressive comments at Aban when she sees him again, as he's been avoiding her for years.
* WhipItGood: Her weapon of choice. She can defeat a lot of weak monsters in a single strike.
* TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask: She's actually very shaken from Avan's death, but she can't let it show.

[[folder: Lon Berk]]
* TheAlcoholic: He's very rarely seen without a good bottle of wine.
* LonersAreFreaks: He doesn't have many friends because of his snarky and abrasive nature.
* PointyEars: They show his demonic nature.
* ScarsAreForever: He lets Myst-Vearn scar him as punishment for insulting Vearn.
* UltimateBlacksmith: He created every [[InfinityPlusOneSword ultimate weapon]] in existence except for the Demon Dragon Sword, which was created by the Gods.
* WeaponOfChoice: He's one of the best swordsmen in history.

[[folder: Matoriv]]
* TheArchmage: His official, in-universe title.
* BadassGrandpa: He's basically the strongest mage ever, but his age prevents him from using too much magic power.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Almost as much as Avan.
* CastFromHitpoints: Some of the spells he used when he was younger. It's taken a dramatic toll on his health as he grew older.
* CoolOldGuy: Even with his limitations, he saves the day several times.
* DirtyOldMan: The first thing he does after meeting the heroes is trying to feel Maamu up.
* NiceHat: His hat is almost as big as himself.
* SadistTeacher: His teaching style is quite different from Aban's, and way more effective if the student is Pop.

[[folder: Brookena]]
* BadassGrandpa: His age doesn't let him fight for long, but he compensates with experience.
* BareFistedMonk: His signature style.
* BrilliantButLazy: He tries to appear as this, though he probably went through TrainingFromHell in the past.
* CoolShades: He's never seen without his small sunglasses.
* CoolOldGuy: Even when he's not fighting, he helps the heroes by giving them ideas.
* OldMaster: He's even called "the martial arts legend" in-universe.
* PaperThinDisguise: Covered himself with a bedsheet as a disguise. No one is fooled.

[[folder: Nova]]
* CastFromHitPoints: He can make his Aura Sword extremely powerful... at the cost of his own life.
* {{Determinator}}: He manages to impress even [[TheHero Dai]] with this, during their first fight against the Royal Guard.
* HeroicWannabe: He thinks he's the "true hero" and Dai is a fake. He changes his mind pretty quickly.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: It's implied that while Dai was fighting his battles, Nova was having other adventures in the North.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's quite the {{Jerkass}} when he first meets Dai and the others, but they're still quite impressed by his determination and willingness to sacrifice himself to save people from demons.
* OddFriendship: At the end, he develops one of these with Lon Berk.

!Demon Army
[[folder: Demon Lord Vearn]]
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Most demons aren't a very obedient bunch, but they're all too scared of his power to disobey him.
* AGodIAm: He is called the God of the Demon World. Though he himself is aware that he pales compared to actual Gods, and will only claim that title for himself once his plan to bring sunlight to the Demon World comes true. He is also so many leagues above everyone else, and such a TimeAbyss that the difference is barely a technicality at this point.
* BeardOfEvil: As a typical evil wizard, he has one of those. [[spoiler:His old body does, at least]].
* BigBad: He created and commands the whole demon army.
* {{Bishonen}}: When he was young, he was pretty good-looking.
* BreakingSpeech: Makes it an art form, in which he deconstructs every argument used against him to break his foes' spirits, made all the more gloomy in that he is usually right.
* TheChessmaster: This line says it all:
-->"As it is in chess, the true victor moves his pieces such that his last move cannot be discerned by the opponent until this is already too late."
* TheDreaded: Both his allies and his enemies are afraid of his overwhelming power.
* EvilOldFolks: He's a demon who casually talks about "waiting a few centuries" for something. [[spoiler: He keeps his young body around just in case]].
* EvilOverlord: His underlings even call him "Demon Lord Vearn".
* FauxAffablyEvil: He does respect his enemies and seems very laid back, but it's only because he's completely sure of his eventual victory. He's actually a StrawNihilist and {{Sadist}}.
* AGlassOfChianti: He's almost never seen without one until the final battle.
* HornedHumanoid: Except for the horns, his body is pretty similar to a human body.
* HumanoidAbomination: If he truly has no other choice, he can turn into one of those.
* MagicStaff: His ultimate weapon. [[spoiler: Until he regains his young body and doesn't ''need'' one anymore]].
* MightMakesRight: Basically his mindset as a demon. Combines this with a BreakingSpeech when called out on being a Sadist.
* OneWingedAngel: He can use his ThirdEye to turn into [[spoiler:a crustacean-like HumanoidAbomination to defeat Dai's own OneWingedAngel]].
* OmnicidalManiac: Wants to destroy the Human World to get a glimpse of the sun for the Demon World. [[spoiler:He comes dangerously close to succeeding]].
* OrcusOnHisThrone: Though unlike most examples, he's able to maintain his plans and [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking is able to show why he can sit on the throne without worry]].
* ThirdEye: He can use it to imprison lower-level characters inside magic pearls.
* TimeAbyss: Pop points out that to Vearn, human lives have to seem like a small flash of light.
* VillainousBreakdown:
** First, when he realizes what Gome really is.
** Then, when [[spoiler:his plan to blow up the Human Realm fails because of Gome and Dai managing to get help from basically every human in the world]].
* WickedCultured: For an evil OmnicidalManiac, he's quite the gentleman.

[[folder: Hadler]]
* BloodKnight: His final PowerUpgradingDeformation awakens this trait.
* CharacterDevelopment: With each PowerUpgradingDeformation, he gets more and more honorable and less [[CardCarryingVillain of a fiend that he started off as]].
* DeathIsCheap:
** Played with. His first PowerUpgradingDeformation, a demonic body granted to him by Vearn, enables him to be resurrected each time he dies, though even HE did not know it NOR expect it. He faced his first death at Hyunkel's hands, going from EvilGloating to being dealt a lethal wound by a drained Hyunkel, recognizing Hyunkel's {{Determinator}} side with his dying breath. He is notably QUITE troubled and nearly upset at being resurrected after this, and this starts his CharacterDevelopment. Ultimately subverted when his power-ups end up nullifying that ability, and the fact that Hadler of all people WILLINGLY chooses this even impresses Myst-vearn and Vearn greatly, further cementing his CharacterDevelopment.
** This trope prompts Hadler to greatly question his own position in the grand scheme of things, and who the hell Myst-vearn really is, since after after bringing him BackFromTheDead, Myst-vearn states that only him or Vearn have the power to resurrect him.
* TheDragon: He ''thinks'' he's Vearn's Dragon but knows he's not the strongest warrior in the Demon Army, and spends his pre-CharacterDevelopment screentime worrying about his position.
* FangsAreEvil: Being a demon, it was to be expected.
* HeroKiller: The first thing he does after appearing in the story is killing Avan.
* KneelBeforeZod: After a while, he [[CharacterDevelopment stops caring about his standing in the army]] and decides his only goal is defeating Avan and his disciples in battle.
* NobleDemon: After [[TookALevelInKindness becoming kinder]].
* PowerUpgradingDeformation: Ironically, he becomes nobler in spirit each time he becomes more demonic in body.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: A long process, but by his death [[spoiler:he has become an honorable warrior worthy of respect]].
* ShouldersOfDoom: And he can also use them to fly!
* TookALevelInKindness: With each upgrade, he becomes more honorable.
* WolverineClaws: His primary weapon... [[spoiler:Before switching to a CoolSword made of Orihalcum]].
* WorthyOpponent: Viewed Aban as this, and later Dai [[spoiler: after the former supposedly died]].

[[folder: Myst-Vearn]]
* CastingAShadow: His whole combat style is based on manipulating dark energy. [[spoiler:He actually ''is'' a bundle of dark energy]].
* TheDragon: One of Vearn's most trusted underlings. [[spoiler:He is actually Vearn's only ''true'' Dragon, and has been for millennia]].
* EnigmaticMinion: Nothing was known about him except he's been Vearn's NumberTwo man since TimeAbyss... [[spoiler: Until it is revealed that he is a part of a complex plan to be the SoulJar for Vearn's true body]].
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Finds Zaboera's methods very distasteful and makes no attempt to hide that contempt for him.
* EvilMentor: To Hyunkel.
* FlashStep: He can be ''very'' fast, apparently even without moving his limbs.
* GrandTheftMe: His modus operandi. [[spoiler:Invoked for Vearn, who uses Myst as a ''caretaker'' for his young frozen body]].
* HighCollarOfDoom: A very noticeable part of his uniform.
* InTheHood: And he ''cannot'' under any circumstances remove it... [[spoiler: Since it hides Vearn's true face.]]
* LivingShadow: His real body is literally made of dark energy.
* ShapeshifterWeapon: Can change his hands into swords.
* TheStoic: To the point it was rare to hear him speak at all for years. [[spoiler: This becomes a plot point as his voice was that of the true Vearn's body.]]
* YesMan: To Vearn.

[[folder: Kill-Vearn]]
* ActuallyADoombot: His body is basically a magic machine... [[spoiler:controlled by his apparent sidekick]].
* CoolMask: Hides the fact that [[spoiler:he is [[ActuallyADoombot a robotic decoy for the real Kill-Vearn, the little imp on his shoulder]].]]
* EnigmaticMinion: He's Vearn loyal follower... until he sees an opportunity for backstabbing. Vearn knows this, and accepts the challenge.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Even more than Vearn: Vearn at least respects his enemies, while Kill Vearn likes to watch them struggling before they die.
* {{Shinigami}}: It's his in-universe nickname.
* MalevolentMaskedMen:
** The smiling mask he wears while killing and torturing underlines his sadistic nature.
** When [[spoiler:Aban]] makes him ''really'' angry, he discards his broken smiling mask and wears and angry one.
* MyBloodRunsHot: His "blood" is actually extremely hot magma from the Demon Realm.
* ProfessionalKiller: He often states that his job is not to fight, but to kill.
* RoyalRapier: When he needs to fight one-on-one, as [[spoiler:in his final confrontation with Aban]], he uses one of these.
* SinisterScythe: His usual weapon.
* {{Troll}}: He shows himself in front of Vearn, stating he'll be his loyal follower... while calling himself ''Kill-Vearn''.

[[folder: Baran]]
* BadassMustache: The strongest general, and the most moustached one.
* CoolSword: The Demon Dragon Sword, created by the gods themselves and one of the ''very'' few weapons that can withstand a Dragon Knight's Draconic Aura.
* DragonRider: Famous for fighting while riding a dragon, though he never does it onscreen.
* FrickinLaserBeams: Can shoot a magic laser beam from the crest on his forehead.
* HeroicSacrifice: He uses all his Draconic Aura in one shot [[spoiler:to save Dai from a bomb implanted by Vearn into Hadler]].
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Prior to his FaceHeelTurn.
* KamehameHadoken: His most powerful spell, Doraura.
* LightningBruiser: Being a Dragon Knight, both his strength and his speed are at a superhuman level.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: The reason he joined the Demon Army is [[spoiler:his tragic lovestory with Soara]].
* LukeIAmYourFather: One of his the most dangerous villains, [[spoiler:and Dai's real father.]].
* LoveRedeems: After [[LoveMakesYouEvil making him evil]], he's redeemed by [[spoiler:parental love for Dai]].
* PerpetualFrowner: He manages to keep frowning even WhenHeSmiles.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: His redemption ends with him [[spoiler:sacrificing himself to save Dai]].
* TookALevelInKindness: After being defeated by Dai and having discovered Vearn's true objective.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: After fighting for the world's sake for years, he decides to settle down with a wife. Unfortunately... [[spoiler: her father didn't like his true nature and decided to kill him; but his wife got in the crossfire]]. So he decides to just destroy everything.

[[folder: Zaboera]]
* AbusiveParents: Considers his own son no more than a tool.
* DirtyCoward: He actually takes pride in leeching off other people's accomplishments without taking risks himself.
* EvilGenius: He's the weakest general in single combat, but he knows ''a lot'' of ways to fight indirectly.
* EvilSorcerer: He commands a legion of evil sorcerer minions.
* EvilOldFolks: The oldest general, and the most [[EvilIsPetty despicably evil]].
* {{Jerkass}}: He's probably the most despicable character in the whole story.
* MadScientist: When he's not doing evil things, he's in his lab creating other evil beings.
* ManipulativeBastard: Manages to manipulate Crocodyne into accepting his help during his fight with Dai.
* MasterOfIllusion: He manages to get a surprise attack on Pop by disguising himself as Maam with magic.
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens: He can't be taller than a meter.
* NoBodyLeftBehind: His ultimate fate after [[spoiler:Crocodine kills him.]]
* PoisonousPerson: He keeps several deadly poison inside his own body as a last-resort weapon.
* SmugSnake: He's very confident in his planning and manipulating ability, but he's not as smart as he thinks he is.

[[folder: Flazzard]]
* AxCrazy: Being the incarnation of a demon's lust for glory is not good for his psyche.
* CardCarryingVillain: Is filled with the same evil spirit of Hadlar before he went through CharacterDevelopment.
* EvilIsBurningHot: He's half-fire, half-ice and full-evil.
* EvilIsPetty: He likes to pepper his major villanous acts with some small villanous acts.
* ForTheEvulz: When he's fighting clearly inferior opponents, he toys with them and teases them.
* FlippingTheBird: To the camera (and indirectly Hyunkel).
* GlorySeeker: His whole reason of being. He doesn't hesitate an instant before almost killing himself just to win Vearn's favor.
* HotBlooded: Let's just say the "ice" side of his personality is somehow less visible than his "fire" one.
* AnIcePerson: He's a master of both fire and ice spells. Luckily for the heroes, he can't combine them.
* {{Jerkass}}: His only emotion is "desire to prove himself". He doesn't know what empathy is.
* RockMonster: He's made of hundreds of little rocks.
* PutTheLaughterInSlaughter: He certainly seems to enjoy himself when he kills people.
* SlasherSmile: His default expression.
