This page describes the characters in ''Anime/HellGirl''.


[[folder:Hell Girl and Co.]]

!!'''General tropes'''

* AffablyEvil: Ai's teammates have a fairly even-minded opinion of human kind, and happily support their co-workers, students, and friends in their many, many jobs. It almost makes you forget what their real job is.
* ClarkKenting: Justified, since they are able to prevent mortals from recognizing them. It becomes a plot point in the third season.
* HiddenHeartOfGold: Despite their efficiency and cruelty in sending people to hell, they can be quite kind-hearted and sympathetic to the turmoil of others. Not often, this may include gentle nudges to use Hell Correspondence if they believe it would save the person from further suffering.
* NotSoStoic: Subverted. They are not allowed to have their emotions interfere with their job, but act normally around each other.
** Especially notable in one instance where a woman tricked a teenage girl into helping her, then mortally wounded the girl. Hone Onna actually sounds angry while banishing the woman to Hell.
* {{Punch Clock Villain}}s: Very much so. Ai ferries people to hell because [[spoiler: that's where her parents will go if she doesn't]]. Her assistants stay with her out of [[UndyingLoyalty loya]][[TrueCompanions lty]].
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld
* SleepModeSize: Their straw doll forms are basically this when someone's not using them to sell their soul for revenge.
* StealthHiBye: They can go between the sunset realm and the world of the living by just vanishing. They will often disappear like this.
* TrueCompanions: Ren outright says that their little group is like family to him.
* UndyingLoyalty: For Wanyuudo and Hone Onna, it's because Ai helped them regain their humanity. In the case of Ichmoku Ren and Yamawaro, it's because she saved them from a lonely existence.
* {{Villain Protagonist}}s: Although of the AntiVillain kind.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: They can do this to varying degrees.
* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: Ai's minions are often shown with different jobs as they observe a prospective client and the corresponding target before the string is pulled.

!!'''Ai Enma'''

->''"O pitiful shadow lost in the darkness''
->'' Bringing torment and pain to others''
->'' O damned soul wallowing in your sins''
->'' is time to die."''

-->Voiced by: MamikoNoto (Japanese), Creator/BrinaPalencia (English)

The titular Hell Girl. It is her duty to offer a devil's deal of vengeance to any who access the Hell Correspondence. If the "customer" accepts, she ferries the target of that person's vengeance to Hell. As part of the deal she will also ferry the "customer" to Hell after he or she dies.
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: In her backstory. She was ostracized by the people of her village because of her strange powers - such as the ability to bring a dead butterfly back to life. [[spoiler:It's implied that this is why she was chosen as a HumanSacrifice - the townspeople just wanted to get rid of her.]]
* AloofDarkHairedGirl
* AntiVillain
* BewareTheQuietOnes: Ai's job as the Hell Girl forces her to repress her emotions to the point where it's ''very'' hard to make her angry... God help you if you actually succeed.
* BrokenBird
* [[spoiler:BuriedAlive: How she and her parents died.]]
* [[spoiler:ButterflyOfDeathAndRebirth: She returns to the mortal world in this form at the beginning of the third season.]]
* CastingAShadow: One of her powers.
* CreepyChild
* CreepyMonotone
* [[spoiler:CryCute]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast
* DarkMagicalGirl: In appearance only.
* DealWithTheDevil: Her duty is to offer these and carry them out.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette
* EmotionlessGirl: Subverted. She ''does'' have emotions, but she must repress them in order to carry out her job as the Hell Girl.
* [[spoiler:[[EtTuBrute Et Tu, Sentaro?]]: Her cousin and OnlyFriend Sentaro unintentionally betrayed her by doing nothing to save her and helping to bury her alive.]]
* FlowerMotifs: Lycoris, also known as red spider lilies. They're closely tied to the theme of death, growing near cemeteries and meaning "Those who cannot return" in flower language.
* GhostlyGoals: [[spoiler:{{Revenge}}. She killed the villagers who used her as a HumanSacrifice. Unfortunately for her, [[EverybodyHatesHades the spider]] noticed and made her the Hell Girl as [[IronicHell punishment]].]]
* GodivaHair
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: When she refuses to transport the soul of Takuma Kurebayashi, whose life situation somewhat mirrored her own. As a punishment she becomes mortal and later dies while trying to defend the boy from violent townspeople.]]
* HimeCut: It's meant to give her the air of a traditional {{miko}}... but in a rather dark and unsettling sense.
* [[spoiler:HumanSacrifice: Her backstory; Ai was meant to be this as a little girl, but with Sentaro's help she was able to stay alive even when abandoned in the mountains - until the villagers found out and took it upon themselves to bury her alive along with her parents. In revenge, she rises from her grave and burns down her village, and is made into the Hell Girl as [[IronicHell punishment]].]]
* [[spoiler:IronicHell: She was forced to become the Hell Girl as punishment for burning her village down in revenge for her death.]]
* KissingCousins: It's implied she had this with her cousin Sentaro.
* LittleMissBadass
* MeaningfulName: Enma is the Buddhist god who rules the underworld. Ai is that word for love, probably. It's deliberately always written in kana, so we can't be sure which meaning of ''ai'' her parents had in mind. There are hints that the "indigo" meaning is significant: the second season finale is called "Aizome" ("dyed in indigo"), as is the end theme, which MamikoNoto herself sings.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent
* [[spoiler:ParentsInDistress: The Lord of Hell is holding the souls of her parents hostage, ensuring she does not go against her duties as Hell Girl. Their souls are freed at the end of the second season.]]
* {{Psychopomp}}: She ferries people to Hell in a similar manner to [[ClassicalMythology Charon]].
* RapunzelHair
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: She has been the Hell Girl for four centuries.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Her SailorFuku has these colors.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Her blood-red eyes are her most striking feature. [[spoiler: In life, she actually had brown eyes, but they turned red the moment she swore her revenge upon her village as she and her parents were buried alive.]]
* ReiAyanamiExpy: Red eyes, really pale skin, supernatural nature, troubled past and an emotionless demeanor that can be quite unsettling.
* SailorFuku: Wears a black one when not in her ceremonial kimono.
* TheStoic
** NotSoStoic
* StringyHairedGhostGirl: A variation. She's definitely ''onryo''-inspired, but she's less scary most of the time because her hair doesn't obscure her face.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: She appears emotionless at first glance, but Ai is actually forced to repress her emotions in order to carry out her job as the Hell Girl. She allows herself to show a more caring and compassionate side around her TrueCompanions during their heartwarming moments. Also, she can show sympathy to her clients, especially those who were betrayed by others. [[spoiler:This is because betrayal featured strongly in the incident that led her to become the Hell Girl]].
* TranquilFury
* UnmovingPlaid: The patterns on her kimonos. In the third season you can see the objects in the pattern float back and forth.
* UsedToBeASweetKid
* YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry

One of Ai's assistants. He appears as a young man.
* AndIMustScream: As a tsukumogami, he was a sword that became sentient after one hundred years. Because he was still an inanimate object, he was ForcedToWatch as people used him as a weapon of both war and murder. He had been left behind after a battle and was stuck there until Ai found him.

A mysterious little girl introduced in the second season. She delights in annoying others.
* BrattyHalfPint: Very much so, though Yamawaro keeps her in check in season 3.
* CreepyChild: Mostly in season 2.
* CreepyDoll: Averted. In the third season, she possesses a wind-up doll and is no creepier because of it. Her having to be wound up again is a running joke.
* [[spoiler:DemonicPossession]]: [[spoiler:The spider possesses her at the finales of the second and third seasons.]]
* FlowerInHerHair
* KidsAreCruel: In season 2, she would sometimes go out of her way to make people who made contracts with Ai regret it while they were alive. Case in point: a man who stole money for his girlfriend's medical care banished the person blackmailing him over it, so she made the girlfriend forget him.

* {{Youkai}}

!!'''Ai's "Grandmother"'''
->''"Ai, I'm leaving your nagajuban right here."''

A kindly old woman hidden behind a sliding door who only speaks to Ai. All that is seen of her is the silhouette of an old woman with a spinning wheel.
