!!Main Characters

[[folder:Konata Izumi]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/RyoHirohashi (JP [Drama CD[=/=]NDS game]), Creator/AyaHirano (JP [Anime[=/PS2=] game]) and Creator/WendeeLee (EN)

A diminutive high schooler who's much more interested in video games, anime and manga than doing actual schoolwork. Her interest in popular culture is truly staggering.
* ACupAngst: She ''used'' to feel bad about being flat-chested, until she played [[VisualNovel/{{Shuffle}} a game]] which had flatness as a desirable status, which bolstered her confidence completely.
* AmbiguouslyBi: While she does... odd things to other girls, she stated she's not into real-life lesbian relationships.
-->'''Konata:''' "[[http://s2-a.animea-server.net/2163%2FExtra_2_OSCEP%2F2-SMZBH.jpg Well, yeah, that's true, but for now, I have no interest in being a lesbian in real life. It just all happened this way.]]"
* BadassBookworm: Despite her generally [[OtakuSurrogate sedentary lifestyle]], Konata is always praised for athleticism. The only reason why she never wanted to be an athlete, she told Tsukasa, because she would not have time for anime. And when it comes to playing quiz games, ''she is Miyuki-level'', though her flaw is being too lazy, and Kagami even commented that if Konata used that willpower into studying she would be a high-achiever. She also knows Martial Arts, but only because her father sent her to the lessons.
%%* BareYourMidriff: She did this once but her father didn't like it because Yutaka might imitate her.
* BeautyMark: Has one below the outer corner of her left eye.
* BookDumb: Hates reading words that are not enclosed by a speech bubble.
* BrilliantButLazy: While Konata seems to be a slacker on the outside, she is actually quite smart and intellectual that even the top-achiever Miyuki Takara became one of her best friends. Kagami commented that if Konata used her willpower into studying then she would be a high achiever. To such levels that in a Volume 6 strip Kagami was unsurprised at the prospect of Konata getting into ''Tokyo University'' just because it's ''close to Akihabara'' (of course, she didn't get into so prestigious a university as Tokyo U).
%%* CatSmile: A continuous one.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Yoshimizu himself at the end of Volume 1. At the onset Konata was supposedly a cool GamerChick who [[ObfuscatingStupidity plays dumb]], only to turn into a down-to-earth, full-blown OtakuSurrogate. OrwellianRetcon was applied in the published volumes to make her image consistent.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Her connection to reality outside games and anime is tenuous at best.
* CoolBigSis: To Yutaka. They may be cousins, but Yutaka views Konata as a second sister.
* CosplayOtakuGirl: The poster girl and current page image.
* DeliberatelyCuteChild: Konata will sometimes do this in conjecture with her short stature, to fool others into thinking she's a child, allowing her to get cheaper movie tickets.
* DirtyOldMan: Even though she is neither "old" or a "man", Kagami thinks she is one anyway.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Legendary Girl "A!".
* EyesAlwaysShut: It's hard to find a single strip that her eyes are open throughout.
* {{Funsize}}: She's seventeen, later eighteen years old, but stands at only 142cm (4'8").
* TheGadfly: After a certain amount of watching one can only wonder if Kagami would be a {{tsundere}} at all if Konata didn't constantly mess with her.
* GamerChick: She has dedicated large portions of her life to excessive gaming of every genre.
%%* GenreSavvy: [[WrongGenreSavvy Some of the time]].
* GreenEyes: Perhaps to compliment her CatSmile.
%%* TheHero
* HollywoodToneDeaf: It's amazing how far off-key Creator/AyaHirano can go when she has to.
* IdiotHair: At least in one strip the Hiiragi twins could not recognize Konata but for her idiot hair.
* LonersAreFreaks: Kagami has that kind of mentality towards her, even if she's far from a recluse.
* MeaningfulName: Konata's name means "here". Her mother Kanata's name means "there". Or "this person" and "that person" respectively.
* MissingMom: [[IllGirl Her mom]] died when she was young.
* NoPeriodsPeriod: In the anime, Kagami seems to think she doesn't undergo one. Konata doesn't say anything on the subject.
* OlderThanSheLooks: At seventeen (later eighteen) years of age, but is short enough to get mistaken for a prepubescent child. Her immature, childish nature doesn't help either. Though she's not really bothered by this.
* OneOfTheKids:
** She's ecstatic at turning eighteen allowing her to buy [[HGame H-Games]] without having to go through her dad, but still pretends to be a prepubescent kid (and can pull it off successfully) to get cheaper movie tickets... and that's among the ''least'' immature things she has done as an eighteen-year-old...
** In her birthday arc in Volume 7, she admitted she has "eighth grade syndrome" (''chuunibyou''). WrongGenreSavvy sets in once one realizes that this Japanese slang can be applied to actual eighth-graders, and with connotations of {{Emo}} with a taste for {{Melodrama}}. That being said, anyone older than eighth grade who has it probably qualifies for this trope.
* OnlySaneMan: Despite being quirky and eccentric, she can be this sometimes when she's the calm one around an angry Kagami.
* OtakuSurrogate: In a series full of otakus, she stands out the most by virtue of having "male otaku" traits. One strip [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] that, saying she is only biologically female.
%%* PetitePride: Sometimes.
* ProudToBeAGeek: Konata holds absolutely no reservations about her hobbies.
* RaisedByDudes: Due to her mother passing away when she was very young, her father raised her mostly by himself. In fact, that's a good part of the reason why she's such an otaku; her father brought her along to Comiket and other conventions ever since she was around five.
* RapunzelHair: Ankle-length, even.
* RidiculousProcrastinator: We often get to see how much she procrastinates, yet her last-minute study can be amusingly effective at times.
* TheRival: To Misao, over which of them "owns" Kagami, and to Kou (albeit one-sided on the latter's part), over arcade fighting games.
* {{Sleepyhead}}: Even if her daytime drowsiness partly stems from her late-night anime watching and gaming, she belongs to the hardworking subtype of the trope.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Nearly a clone of her mom Kanata -- down to [[OlderThanTheyLook her lack of growth spurt]] -- except with her dad's skin tone and beauty mark.
* TerribleArtist: Drawing isn't exactly her forte, so to speak. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yPU0S_oUBw Her drawings of her friends]] look like they were drawn by a five-year old.
* TightsUnderShorts: She sometimes wears this with her casualwear, most notably in the manga.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to the rest of the main cast's Girly Girls and to her cousin, Yutaka's Girly Girl.
* TomboyishPonytail: Occasionally has a ponytail which fits her boyish, athletic character.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: She acts tomboyish, but she's also into girly animes and visual novels.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Chocolate cornets.
%%* VitriolicBestBuds: With Kagami.
* VoiceChangeling: Konata is very skilled at imitating voices, which she once does for LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya while cosplaying as the latter. It helps that both characters have the same voice actress (in both Japanese and English).
* WrongGenreSavvy: Konata often talks about tripping {{Event Flags}} like she's in a DatingSim, even though she's actually in a SliceOfLife comedy.
%%* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
* YuriFan: She watches ''LightNovel/StrawberryPanic'', and bought some of Hiyori's Minami/Yutaka {{doujinshi}} at Comiket, although she's initially unaware that the latter ''was'' based on her otherwise innocent cousin.

[[folder:Kagami Hiiragi]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AmiKoshimizu (JP [Drama CD[=/=]NDS game]), Creator/EmiriKatou (JP [Anime[=/PS2=] game) and Creator/KariWahlgren (EN)

Konata's closest friend and Tsukasa's older twin sister. She is easily angered by some of Konata's more... "playful" antics, but always seems to be the one who understands her hobbies. Her liking of {{light novels}} is also a driver of plot.
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: Comes off intimidating at times due to her aggressive temper.
* AmbiguouslyBi: Implied to have a relationship with Konata that goes beyond friendship ([[TeasingCreator one confirmed by Yoshimizu as a one-sided affair, though he doesn't reveal who crushes on who]]), though she has also expressed interest in boys.
%%* BlueWithShock: Her standard reaction to Konata's quips.
* CatchPhrase: "Mattaku..." ("Seriously/Really..."), whenever she's annoyed.
* ChallengeGamer: Lampshaded in one episode, where she sees her friends having fun playing and is frustrated at herself for playing so seriously. This is quite similar to her ''tsun'' side in life.
* ClassRepresentative: Just Grade 10 in the manga, Grades 11-12 in the anime.
%%* CryCute: Oh so very much.
* DeadpanSnarker: In the dub at least, she's usually annoyed when she snarks, but sometimes she's deadpan.
* FirstNameBasis: It says a lot about how often Kagami comes over to Konata, Tsukasa, and Miyuki's class that all of their classmates casually refer to her by her first name, while everyone in her class still calls her by her last name.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: In terms of personality, Kagami is the [[StraightMan Straight Woman]] responsible sibling to Tsukasa's foolish. And that's saying something!
* GamerChick: She also plays video games, albeit not as intense as Konata.
* GenericCuteness: Konata said Kagami would look forgettable should she cut off her [[GirlishPigtails pigtails]] in the manga. In the anime, she instead says Kagami needed to keep them since she's a {{tsundere}}.
* GirlishPigtails: For {{tsundere}}-tude.
* GrumpyBear: She is this to the rest of the cast (Konata in particular) due to her comparatively mature and serious personality.
* HatesBeingAlone: Kagami would be too proud to ever admit it, but Konata suggests the former suffers from this.
%%* TheLancer
* LethalChef: Konata likes to {{flanderize}} her as one, but she's just not as good as Tsukasa.
* LuminescentBlush: Naturally, during her deredere moments. Displayed a full body blush during her defining Comiket scene (her whole face and even her hands turned red).
* MeaningfulName: The four Hiiragi sisters all have ThemeNaming going on with reference to the Shinto Religion. In Kagami's case, her name refers to mirrors, a sacred object in Shinto and part of the Imperial regalia.
* {{Miko}}: When her father is the local shrine's priest...
* {{Moe}}: InUniverse -- her [[{{Tsundere}} attitude]] is deemed adorable by Konata, which leads to ''lots'' of teasing. Cue Yuri Fanfics.
* {{Muggle}}: She plays this role in terms of otaku culture, although her prejudice in that is relatively minor. Her criticism is more concentrated in Konata's DirtyOldMan antics, irresponsible spending, laziness in studies, and the lack of a real-life goal.
%%* NotSoAboveItAll: Especially in the last episode.
* OnlySaneWoman: WordOfGod -- She's the most sane and normal of the main cast and probably the most a Anime/LuckyStar character can get. And in addition, she is somewhat of a genderbend insert of the creator himself.
* PolarOppositeTwins: With Tsukasa, being the smart and responsible StraightMan compared to Tsukasa's ditzy {{Cloudcuckoolander}} nature.
* RapunzelHair: Lampshaded by Tsukasa during the BeachEpisode.
* RedOniBlueOni: Kagami can either be Konata's blue or Tsukasa's red.
* ShrinkingViolet: She can be shy and broody sometimes.
* StraightMan: She's the most normal of the protagonists, and often calls out her friends and sister about their antics.
* SurprisinglySimilarCharacters: Unsurprisingly though, is similiar to Kyou Fujibayashi from Clannad. Both are Tomboy Tsundere Type As whom you don't wanna mess with! And especially their meek twins, whom they're very protective of.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Tsukasa's Girly Girl but Girly Girl to Konata's Tomboy.
* TomboyishPonytail: Seen with a ponytail once with Konata and Tsukasa. She didn't look good in it, being ungirlish.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: Though she tends to act very tomboyish, she also has a soft, sensitive girly side.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type A, especially towards Konata. But she's not the stereotypical "brutalise the protagonist tsundere," since she is pretty kind. Her deredere side is not about romance but more on loneliness in general. Her {{Image Song}}s even have this -- one is fast and upbeat, the other a bit slow and has lyrics hinting at her loneliness. Episode 10's "Lucky Channel" discusses at length whether "tsundere" is the right word to describe her.
* TsurimeEyes: The most significant feature to distinguish her from Tsukasa, and to highlight her smart and serious nature. She currently provides the page image.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Konata. Konata often exchanges snarky remarks, while Kagami displays exasperation and frustration with Konata's lazy and hardcore {{Otaku}} nature.
* WeightWoe: To such extents that annoy Konata.
-->'''Konata:''' *Sigh* "This is one of the reasons why girls are so..."
-->'''Kagami:''' "[[HypocriticalHumor Hello. You're supposed to be a girl, too, aren't you?]]"
* YaoiFangirl: Averted. Though she likes light novels, especially LightNovel/FullMetalPanic, her reaction when innocently grabbing [[{{Filth}} a pretty graphic Gauron x Sousuke doujin]] at Comiket was a LuminescentBlush and a speedy exit.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Violet in her case.
%%* ZettaiRyouiki: Occasionally, thus giving her "Grade S" package.

[[folder:Tsukasa Hiiragi]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MaiNakahara (JP [Drama CD[=/=]NDS game]), Creator/KaoriFukuhara (JP [Anime[=/PS2=] game]) and Creator/MichelleRuff (EN)

Kagami's cheerful and very loopy younger twin sister. She's actually very good at home chores and cooking, although she sometimes has to ask for Kagami's help because she forgets things easily.
* {{Adorkable}}: Big time. She easily forgets things, isn't always very good at studying because she tends to oversleep, and is adorable all the way in trying to correct these faults.
* BeautifulDreamer: [[http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn172/Yumi-Kimi-hime/Lucky%20Star%20icons/thls111icon.gif Awwwww.]] Granted, it's ''Kagami'' who discovers her sleeping, and there's no romantic intentions.
%%* BlankWhiteEyes: Her standard reaction to Konata's quips.
* CaptainErsatz: Of Akari Kamigishi of ''VisualNovel/ToHeart'', at least when it comes to character designs. Lampshaded at least twice in the anime -- when Konata gives her a school uniform for a birthday gift (Kagami is instantly reminded of ''VisualNovel/ToHeart''), and when she was noticed by some otakus who call her Akira and how they ask her to say "Hiroyuki-chan".
* TheChick: Of the main cast since she tends to play the GirlyGirl to the tomboys, Konata and Kagami.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Stereotypical dreamer and klutz.
* TheDitz: Even the most mundane tasks like studying or ''finding her phone address'' proves to be very challenging for poor Tsukasa. Ironically, her issue occasionally seems to be ''over''thinking something. Prime examples of this are in the anime's second episode, where we see that she spent more time scheduling her studying rather than actually studying and when she was in the hurdle race of the school's sports festival and was thinking so much about Miyuki's advice on counting her steps that she slammed into ''every single hurdle''.
* FeminineWomenCanCook: One of the very few things she's good at is cooking.
* {{Foil}}: She often serves as this to Konata and Kagami. Highlighted in the anime when Konata asks the twins their favorite colors (white for Tsukasa, black for Kagami[[note]]in the manga it's violet[[/note]]) and when Kagami asks the other two how they reacted to a particular manga scene (Konata laughed, Tsukasa cried; however both answer "Manga/SgtFrog" when asked about their favorite manga, prompting Kagami to wonder: "Are you the same or different?").
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Tsukasa is the foolish to Kagami's responsible, as stated in the entry above.
* GirlishPigtails: Her [[TwinSwitch switch]] with Kagami. Also fits her cute personality.
* HeavySleeper: She wakes up at noon, sometimes ''later'', and still thinks it's morning until someone points it out to her.
* IdiotsCannotCatchColds: Kagami says she always seems to be fine when everyone else is laid up, which Konata calls "inconspicuous"...
* TheIngenue: A lesser degree of this trope when compared to Yutaka below.
* MeaningfulName: The four Hiiragi sisters all have ThemeNaming going on with reference to the Shinto Religion. In Tsukasa's case, her name refers to shinto priests.
* {{Miko}}: When her father is the local shrine's priest...
* NiceGirl: [[AllThereInTheManual The official guide]] lists "Good Person" as her highest stat. One strip also shows that her idea of an April Fool's joke is lying about lying.
* PhoneaholicTeenager: When she learns how to text on her cell, she gets addicted to it. It's to the point where at least one of her texts had an entire wall of emojis tacked to the end, and the Hiiragi household's phone bill skyrocketed because of her texting habits alone.
* PolarOppositeTwins: With Kagami, being the ditzy, BookDumb {{Cloudcuckoolander}} compared to her smarter and more responsible twin sister.
* ShrinkingViolet: She has purple hair and can be timid around strangers, so she tend to hide behind her sister.
* {{Sleepyhead}}: Classic example of the hardworking subtype.
* SurprisinglySimilarCharacters: If you haven't realized because you didn't read above, she's similiar to Ryou Fujibayashi from Clannad. Short purple hair and sweet girls, just don't mess with their twin sisters!
* TalkingToHerself: In the English dub, Tsukasa shares the same voice actress as Minami.
* TaremeEyes: To highlight her niceness and kindhearted nature, and to differentiate her from Kagami. She currently provides the page image.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to her tomboy twin, Kagami.
%%* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

[[folder:Miyuki Takara]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Erina Nakayama (JP [Drama CD[=/=]NDS game]), Creator/AyaEndo (JP [Anime[=/PS2=] game]) and Creator/KarenStrassman (EN)

The "[[TheSmartGuy smart girl]]" of the main quartet and embodiment of many stereotypical {{meganekko}} traits, including a very polite manner of speech (even amongst her friends).
* TheAce: Konata praises her for her high grades, and Nanako Kuroi seems to make Miyuki always the class representative because, as Konata mentioned, Nanako herself has less work to do (Konata gets slammed for it). And in [[{{Otaku}} Konata and Hiyori]]'s point of view, they regard all of Miyuki's faults as "Moe points".
* AfraidOfDoctors: Miyuki is afraid of going to the dentist, and often tries avoiding this even when she knows she should go.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Occasionally; one Volume 4 strip has Konata telling her that she and the other girls won't blindly follow orders. When she replies with a smile that she'll entertain other opinions, even Kuroi-sensei freaks out, implying she's willing to pretend to hear them out so long as ultimately she calls the shots. She's that assertive... she's just too polite to be blunt about it.
* BlindWithoutEm: Without her glasses, Miyuki has a 20/200 vision.
* CharmPoint: Her glasses, which Konata says give her major moe points.
* TheChick: Of the main cast, along with Tsukasa, as both are feminine while the other two are tomboys, and additionally, Miyuki's "feminine" features are widely endured.
* ClassRepresentative: Kept doing this, even if, personality-wise, she subverts the type. Even Konata mocks Nanako for having Miyuki as the Class Rep everytime so that she herself has less work to do.
* CoolBigSis: To Minami. When talking to Konata about her, Miyuki downright said that she's like a little sister, and in the manga, Minami even starts to call her "onee-chan" (big sister), albeit originally by accident.
* CuteClumsyGirl: In fact, her clumsiness is part of what makes Konata consider her so adorable. Miyuki lampshades her own clumsiness in the first episode by mentioning how she often accidentally does things like cutting herself while peeling potatoes, falling on her face while running to board a train, getting her bag stuck as the train's doors close, etc. This ''does not mean'' that Miyuki has some kind of neuro-disorder; the reason why she is so clumsy is that she is too much focused on intellectual matters that she ends up spacing out. She even out-Konata'd Konata on freaking hard-level ''Minesweeper''.
* DisappearedDad: Her dad is mentioned once or twice, but never seen in the series.
* DitzyGenius: She's very book-smart and capable at all kinds of tasks, and often comes up with the best ideas out of the group, but she's also quite clumsy and prone to spacing out. The implication is that she's so busy thinking about things that she pays less attention to the world around her than she should be, leading to her clumsy moments.
* GagBoobs: {{Lampshade}}d as Konata and Minami thought Miyuki, though unable to swim, can at least float ''because'' of her breasts. She even gets a [[AnimalMotifs cow joke]] from Konata at one point and wins a race [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh solely by being able to break the ribbon earlier]].
* HotTeacher: As of manga volume 8, [[spoiler:she's doing work as a home-tutor.]]
* HugeSchoolgirl: She isn't really very tall (see group shot above) -- she's only slightly taller than the Hiiragis and is slightly shorter than Patty. She just spends a lot of time with the diminutive Konata.
* LongHairIsFeminine: Quite feminine with RapunzelHair.
* {{Meganekko}}: Another reason why she's so cute, including in Konata's eyes.
* {{Moe}}: Invoked in-universe by Konata on account of her talents, adorable flaws, and her shapely figure, to the point of even ''deifying'' her.
-->'''Konata:''' "She's a walking shrine of Moe!"
* MsExposition: The go-to character for any and all explanations, leading to [[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} her fan nickname]].
* NiceGirl: She's as much of a sweetheart in personality as she is in looks.
* {{Ojou}}: Wealthy, kind, cute, polite, smart, and respected by pretty much all of her friends.
* OnlySaneWoman: When Konata pranks an angry Kagami and Tsukasa being a total {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.
* OutOfFocus: Towards the latter half of the anime. {{Lampshaded}} by the mangaka in the {{omake}} -- which is sort of unfortunate as Yoshimizu apparently has a {{meganekko}} fetish.
* ParodySue: Mercilessly lampshaded by Konata as ''"The Perfect Superwoman" and ''"The personification of Moe itself."''
* PinkMeansFeminine: She has pink hair and quite a feminine personality as she is polite and very sweet.
* ProperTightsWithaSkirt: Very polite and always wears tights .
%%* PurpleEyes
* RoseHairedSweetie: She despite being the {{Ojou}} is very kind.
* TheSmartGirl: She tends to have the highest grades of her class, sometimes by far. Tsukasa even notes there's no way they can compete with her to see who has the highest grades. In the OVA she comes up with a way to split three biscuits among the four of them by separating the top and bottom halves, giving one to each person, then splitting the remaining two in half and distributing them evenly.
* SmartPeopleWearGlasses
* StrongFamilyResemblance: What she ''didn't'' inherit from her mother, luckily, is the latter's [[{{Manchild}} childish]] [[TheDitz ditziness]]. However, Miyuki also said she was ''forced'' to be more competent or else the family [[TooDumbToLive won't be able to function]].
* SurprisinglyGoodEnglish: The fact that she can hold whole conversations with Patty ''in English''. Justified with her general IQ and when she said she did take English conversation classes.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: She's afraid of the dentist.
%%* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
* YoungerThanSheLooks: Sometimes she is mistaken to be an office lady. This has became primary annoyance and woe; her maturity compared to [[{{Manchild}} Yukari]] sometimes make her appear ''older'' than her mother.

!!Supporting Characters (Teens)

[[folder:Yutaka Kobayakawa]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AiShimizu (JP [Drama CD[=/=]NDS game]), Creator/ShizukaHasegawa (JP [Anime[=/PS2=] game]) and Creator/HyndenWalch (EN)

Yui's younger sister who lives with Konata (her cousin, though she often sees her as a sister) since she got into Konata's high school. Generally speaking, a [[IllGirl frail]] but [[CheerfulChild cheerful]] [[OlderThanTheyLook fauxli]]. Her friendship with Minami often falls into RomanticTwoGirlFriendship territory.
* BerserkButton: Her failure to grow.
* BrokenBird: Averted. In Volume 4 Chapter 118, it was revealed that Yui's [[ThePowerOfLove sisterly love]] helped her avert problems in social interactions resulting from the years she spent as an IllGirl.
* CaptainErsatz: Of Chiyo Mihama of ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh''. This was {{lampshade}}d when she introduced herself in front of the class (pictured above), and ''further'' lampshaded when she found she unwittingly [[ShoutOut shouted out]] to Chiyo, because "[Konata]'s geekiness is rubbing off on me!"
* CheerfulChild: Overaged, but her extreme case of [[OlderThanTheyLook Older Than She Looks]] still allows her to have the look of a child.
* CuteClumsyGirl: Konata observed she has that same "cute shortcoming" as Miyuki.
* CutesyDwarf: In-universe assumption of some of her classmates towards her, which is not particularly surprising in light of her associated tropes. She isn't really comfortable about this.
* {{Foil}}: To the more dirty-minded Konata who's brash and a prankster.
* TheDitz: Of a much lesser magnitude compared to Tsukasa though.
* DontYouDarePityMe: She, surprisingly, has moments of this, especially a Volume 7 strip where, [[spoiler:hearing that Minami has been helping her to the latter's detriment in PE, she harshly asked Minami to ''not'' help in a ''long-distance running match'']].
* GirlishPigtails: For actually being cute and innocent.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: She has streaks of this, which acts as a {{deconstruction}} of some of her tropes -- her [[OlderThanTheyLook growth deficiencies]] and [[IllGirl poor health]], considered as her major {{Charm Point}}s, clearly brought her social issues and she clearly likes neither. Also see DontYouDarePityMe.
* IllGirl: Somehow less traditional since she never had any dangerous disease, but her weak constitution makes her succumb to common aliments ''very'' easily.
* TheIngenue: She's ''too'' innocent for the Izumis to discuss porn in front of her. Figures.
--> '''Yutaka''': "Oh Tamura-saaaaaan! What does 'yaoi' mean?"
* LittleSisterHeroine: At least Konata thinks she is.
* {{Moe}}: Invoked in-universe by [[OtakuSurrogate Konata]] on account of her ''cute flimsy legs'', plus many moe points listed here, including IllGirl, {{UsefulNotes/Kawaisa}} and TheIngenue.
* NiceGirl: One of the kindest and most innocent people in the series.
* NotGrowingUpSucks: Even at ''tenth'' grade she found that it ''sucks'' being too short to find a boyfriend. [[IllGirl Missing many of her classmates' social activities]] doesn't help, either.
* OlderThanSheLooks: For a fifteen-year-old, she's even way shorter than Konata at 138cm (4'6").
* ShrinkingViolet: She's very shy and timid, especially when meeting new people.
* SiblingYinYang: Compare to Yui, below.

[[folder:Minami Iwasaki]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MiyuMatsuki (JP [Drama CD[=/=]NDS game]), Creator/MinoriChihara (JP [Anime[=/PS2=] game]) and Creator/MichelleRuff (EN)

Entering the story by [[ReturningTheHandkerchief returning Yutaka's handkerchief]] in the beginning of what can be seen as a RomanticTwoGirlFriendship, Minami is a quiet, expressionless girl often misunderstood by others to be creepy. Good at most subjects, and is childhood friends with neighbour Miyuki since both of them love reading.
* ACupAngst: She is completely flat-chested -- at least Konata and Yutaka have very small ones. Her angsting over this is close to OnceAnEpisode frequency.
* BadassBookworm: Has the tendency in unanimated manga, coupled with her ChronicHeroSyndrome.
%%* {{Bifauxnen}}: Played up by Hiyori in Episode 24.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: She appears to always be ready to help people.
* HiddenEyes: Happens often when she gets into an embarrasing situation.
* HugeSchoolgirl: At 163cm, she's not ''that'' tall. The assumption, however, frequently stems from her association with the ''extremely'' diminutive Yutaka.
* InnerMonologue: As she's [[TheQuietOne not that much of a talker]], she has a lot of this.
* MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold: Many of her classmates think she wants to be alone, but she's really just a shy and sweet girl.
* NiceGirl: Though she does tend to scare the class because she looks cool and aloof, she's actually a very nice girl.
* TheQuietOne: Part of what makes the class consider her somewhat creepy is how quiet she usually is.
* ReiAyanamiExpy: A parody. And don't forget, she shares this status with another character with the same seiyu, Yuki Nagato from the Haruhi Suzumiya series.
* SecretlyWealthy: Implied. She lives in the same block as Miyuki.
* ShrinkingViolet: She may seem aloof and intimidating, but she's really very shy and awkward around others.
* TalkingToHerself: In the English dub, Minami shares the same voice actress as Tsukasa
* TsurimeEyes: Not a tsundere, but almond shaped eyes, a Kuudere with that "death stare."
* WhenSheSmiles: Volume 5 has a single panel of her giggling at Yutaka falling down. It's absolutely adorable. There's also the panel of her cuddling with her dog, which is just as adorable.

[[folder:Hiyori Tamura]]

Yutaka and Minami's classmate, member of the Animation Research Club, and {{doujinshi}} {{yonkoma}} mangaka with a habit of shipping game characters already, as well as [[ShipperOnDeck Minami and Yutaka]].
* AmbiguouslyBi: Her frequent fantasies about her friends indicate this or an overactive imagination.
* AnimalsHateHim: Or at least Minami's dog. She has a dog herself, so this is a subversion.
* BlueWithShock: Her reaction when Yutaka asks her [[TheIngenue what yaoi means]].
* TheChewToy: Almost as if Yoshimizu is punishing her for her perversions, she is the regular victim of AmusingInjuries, {{Freudian Slip}}s, accidents and other misfortunes.
* CovertPervert: Draws erotic manga and fantasises about her friends rather more than is probably healthy. Though given what a rotten job she does of hiding it, "covert" is debatable.
%%* ForeheadOfDoom
* FreudianSlip: At one point she mistook dodgeball positions as {{Seme}} and {{Uke}}. Language note: Attacker at dodgeball is still {{seme}}; it was {{uke}} that she made the slip -- the correct term is ''mamori''. [[{{Woolseyism}} Expertly handled]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzzqsInGaBQ in the dub.]]
-->'''Hiyori:''' "And you're okay with her trying to nail you? Yeah I bet you ar--"
* ImagineSpot: Often falls into this when she fantasizes Minami and Yutaka as SchoolgirlLesbians.
** Strips in Volume 4/5 show her making different {{yaoi}}/{{yuri}} fantasies about [[UsefulNotes/JapaneseHolidays Setsubun]], not to mention another about Konata kissing Miyuki, after the former said that tooth decay can be transmitted by kissing.
** Another notable one is when Izumi begs Yutaka not to reveal her [[ClosetGeek geek identity]]. Hiyori proceeds to imagine [[SexualExtortion how a less-than-honorable guy would stereotypically react in Yutaka's place]]. [[spoiler:Izumi [[ImagineSpotting notices Hiyori's reaction]].]]
* {{Joshikousei}}: Her ImageSong revolves around this.
* {{Meganekko}}: Though her wearing glasses is scarcely, if ever, commented upon.
* PhraseCatcher: "She's Strong..." Said by Minami and Yutaka on many occasions.
* RapunzelHair: It reaches her knees.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: Goes that at a plot-bunny-dissecting mode.
%%* SequentialArtist
* ShipperOnDeck: She frequently sees Minami and Yutaka as more than just an OddFriendship. In the manga she implied that she befriended them simply to find chances at shipping them. Also, it is also implied that if they knew the way she shipped them, they would be ''angry''.
* ShippingGoggles: Probably the most triumphant in-universe satirical take on same-gender shippers.
* YaoiFangirl: Most often draws yaoi and yuri doujinshi, sometimes leading to embarassment when her manga is brought up.
* YuriFan: Often has {{Imagine Spot}}s where she ships Minami and Yutaka together, much to her own embarassment.

* GenkiGirl: Incredibly energetic and willing to participate it anything fun.

Kagami and Ayano's classmate for five consecutive years, Misao is the latter's childhood friend and, as defined by the former, an unorganized "lazy ass".

* BewareTheNiceOnes: She had one of the scariest [[BlueWithShock Blue With Anger]] in this series after Misao dream-talked about... something sexy between Ayano and Misao's brother.

* GirlyBruiser: Just because she's girly doesn't mean she's a pushover - she gets angry when pushed around.
* GirlyGirl: Very feminine, gentle, nurturing in personality and what she's known for.
* GirlyGirlWithATomboyStreak: Although she's mostly girly, she has quite a "scary" temper.

However, she runs into Hiyori on one of her shopping trips to Comiket, who discovers her secret. She is good at home economics, but is bad at art. She likes "cute" things and likes sweets, as well as coffee and milk.
* BookDumb: Izumi completely flounders academically. At one point she even filled in the same letter for every question on a multiple choice test and ''still'' got them all wrong.
* ClassRepresentative: Grades aside, she's a model student who as class rep keeps her fellow students on track and is very attuned to their needs. She personally carried Hiyori to the nurse's office after being the only one to notice she was having a fainting spell.
* ClosetGeek: And freaks out whenever she thinks she's been discovered.

* {{Beergasm}}: As a part of her WorkHardPlayHard attitude.
* ChristmasCake: And incorrectly assumed Yui was also single.
* CorporalPunishment: Frequently delivers rather aggressive {{Dope Slap}}s to {{Vitriolic Best Bud|s}} Konata. For example, when Konata commented that Miyuki is always selected as Class Representative as an excuse so that Nanako herself would have less work to do.
* CuteLittleFangs
* GamerChick: She's in the same party in the MMORPG Konata also plays. As a matter of fact, she is probably the #2 gamer chick in the series.
* HotTeacher: A beautiful young teacher with CuteLittleFangs and a fun-loving personality. Though she's, to her dismay, still single.
* KansaiRegionalAccent: And not from that region!
* MustHaveLotsOfFreeTime: Seems like Miyuki instead does most of the work as Class Representative. Konata wondered if that's the reason that she's a ChristmasCake; she didn't have that much of a social life.
* NoSenseOfDirection: During the BeachEpisode, Konata thought she was
* OneOfTheKids: Just because she's a young woman doesn't mean she's much more mature or less fun-loving than her students.
* ParentalHypocrisy: She plays the same online game as Konata, and has been into MMORPG's since before she was Konata's age, but she tells Konata off for doing that very thing, and ''uses in-game chat to remind her to do her homework''. When Konata calls her out on this, she remarks that, as a teacher, she has a duty to uphold, which Konata accepts as understandable, but still...
* SenseiChan: Young, pretty cute, close to her students (especially Konata, with whom she often plays [=MMORPG=]s), and sometimes not much more mature than her students (though she is at least wise enough to not sacrifice sleep for gaming time).
%%* SternTeacher: Stern but loving.
* {{Tomboy}}: Grown up version who's pretty manly for a woman.
* {{Tsurime Eyes}}
* WorkHardPlayHard: Yes, in class she seems to be strict and always dope-slapping Konata for irresponsibility. Yet she is also a Konata-level GamerChick.

Konata's cousin and Yutaka's older sister. She works as a traffic cop, but even Konata wonders why can she keep at that position. Surprisingly, she showed real care towards Yutaka. Has an offscreen husband.
* BerserkButton: Only pass her while she's behind the wheel if you're prepared for an ''Manga/InitialD''-like race.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: You usually don't want your police officers to be nonsensical goofballs.
* CatSmile: Her default expression.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Her driving skills are truly awe-inspiring, and she does it while ''still driving under the limit''.

* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: Usually crashes at the Izumi household when she's too drunk to drive home.
* HypocriticalHumor:
** Yui at one point jokes about how lame cops are... despite being one herself.
** When driving the Hiiragi sisters to the beach, she mentions how she knows everything there is to know about safe driving. Then a guy passes her. She gets pissed, and starts racing him. Kagami even lampshades it.

Konata's father and fellow {{otaku}}. Works as a freelance writer at home but surprisingly, he writes more serious, completely non-otaku topics.
* AudienceSurrogate: For the older male readers/audience.
* BeautyMark: On the outer corner on his left eye. Such a mark customarily symbolizes sadness, which is appropriate for him; he really ''misses'' his late wife Kanata.
* BumblingDad: He's certainly not stupid or lazy, yet the entire Izumi-Kobayakawa household ''thinks'' so.
* CassandraTruth: ''Nobody'' believes that he is actually a hardworking writer who can write wholesome, non-otaku-related topics, has quite a bit of book smarts, has had a relationship with Kanata that was far beyond {{comedic lolicon}}, so on and so forth.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Kanata.
* ComedicLolicon:
** He buys [[HGame H-Games]] for his underage daughter and takes shots of nubile girls at other schools' sports festivals. Needless to say, even his daughter was fed up and frequently fears for his arrest, even though he's portrayed as mostly harmless otherwise.
** In later volumes of the manga this aspect of his gets subdued. One Volume 7 strip has Yutaka catching him [[spoiler:looking between the legs of figurines]] -- which horrified the innocent girl to no end. This ends up becoming a running gag.
* DemotedToExtra: Didn't appear in the OVA.
* DotingParent: Someone's got to give the guy credit for being an attentive and loving father who raised a happy and emotionally well-adjusted daughter to adulthood... eccentricities notwithstanding.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: He's not exactly "huge" per se, it's just his wife that was so short he towered above her.
%%* OneOfTheKids
%%* PermaStubble
* PervertDad: With the bulk of his perviness oriented towards young girls, especially his daughter and younger niece.
* UnfortunateImplications: In-universe -- [[spoiler:the figure incident could be seen as him actually having dropped it and picking it up. Also, in volume 7 he gets spotted by Yutaka pantsless while trying to find toilet paper. Konata hears a scream and assumes he did something stupid.]]

An anime-only character, he is the manager of the Animate store Konata frequents. He is actually the mascot for the Animate chain as ''Captain Animate'', created by Shimamoto Kazuhiko in the late 90s; but the one who made him known in Japan was none other than Creator/HideakiAnno who directed a short OriginalVideoAnimation for the character, a Radio Show was also made. Anisawa was made to help boost the sales and pick interest of the general public into buying anime merchandise, not just for Animate stores.

* ProductPlacement: The Animate chain does have commercial links with this series, judging from the existence of some of its strips from its in-store magazine.
* PunnyName: His real name in Japanese order is Anisawa Meito. Take the first part of his family name and his given name, put it together and you get ''Animeito'', as in Animate, the chain of stores he's the mascot for.
* ShoutOut: In one episode, he pulls a freaking ''[[Anime/CodeGeass Geass]]'' from out of nowhere. ''[[CompellingVoice Lelouch's Geass.]]'' He uses it on Konata to get her to FINALLY buy something in his store... only for it to turn out that she doesn't have enough money.

%%* EyesAlwaysShut: Default expression.

* CuteAndPsycho: She's adorable and she knows it, but just take a look at her other persona. It's a bad idea to piss her off, too, unless you really want her "psycho" side to come out.
* DeliberatelyCuteChild: She knows she's a cute young girl, and has been using that to her advantage to gain viewers ever since she was four.
* TheFakeCutie: Physically, she's adorable and is good at acting the part, but personality-wise, she's more of a [[HatesTheJobLovesTheLimelight dried-up entertainer]] who takes out her frustrations on Shiraishi.
* FinancialAbuse: Implied in the anime. She did mention that her mother did have some ''very'' nice purses, some of which weren't there the previous day...
* {{Flanderization}}: Akira is ''not'' a BitchInSheepsClothing (or at least not nearly as much) in the original manga -- but come the anime version...
* GenkiGirl: But it's just part of her on-screen persona.
* GoodEyesEvilEyes: Or at least {{Jerkass}} Eyes. Has a tendency to switch back and forth several times in a given episode.
* HandHidingSleeves: Of the "cute" variant, though this is only to add to her status as TheFakeCutie.
* HatesTheJobLovesTheLimelight: Her "off-screen" personality in the anime. This came from her failure to get a position in the main show.
* IdiotHair: It wouldn't be smart to call her an idiot, though.
* IdolSinger: She is one, though we don't see her do anything idol-related aside from her "live concert" in episode 16 (which is really just her singing karaoke, much to her chagrin).
* ImprobableAge: Repeat: she's a ''fourteen''-year old IdolSinger with ''eleven'' years of experience in the media.
%%* {{Kawaiiko}}: Her "on-screen" personality.
* NiceCharacterMeanActor: This should be obvious considering how she's also a BitchInSheepsClothing and TheFakeCutie; she acts like an adorable {{Kawaiiko}} who's very enthusiastic about greeting the audience, but in reality she's a {{Jerkass}} who's [[HatesTheJobLovesTheLimelight very cynical about her job]].
* MoodSwinger: Played with. Her actual mood doesn't really change, but Akira's insanely good at going into character the moment she needs to: [[TheFakeCutie she can snap into the cutesy idol act]] ''instantly,'' no matter what she was doing or whether she was in a furious rant a literal split second earlier. Her sheer unpredictability - even if she's just acting - makes for her biggest RunningGag.
* {{Tsundere}}: Inverted. May seem Type B, but actually a rare Type A who fakes kindness.
* WhiteDwarfStarlet: In the {{anime}}; in the {{manga}} universe she's still at the peak of her career.

[[folder:Minoru Shiraishi]]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[CharacterAsHimself Himself]] (JP) and Creator/SamRiegel (EN)

Creator/MinoruShiraishi is an anime-exclusive character with two roles: "Sebastian", a random student in Konata's class, and Akira's henpecked assistant in ''Lucky Channel''.
* AscendedMeme: "Wa-wa-wa-wasuremono~" Upgraded to an ending in Episode 13, and a full song when the album came out.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He takes an astounding nineteen episodes' worth of physical and emotional abuse from Akira, but when he finally snaps [[TheDogBitesBack the results are epic]]. He even provides the image for the trope page.
* ButtMonkey: The poor guy gets a lot of abuse from Akira, to the point that he eventually reaches his RageBreakingPoint.
* CelebrityParadox: During a BreakingTheFourthWall moment in one segment of ''Lucky Channel'', Minoru starts calling out all characters voiced by [[Creator/HiromiKonno Akira's seiyuu]] from various anime. She in turn mentions how Minoru works part-time at a restaurant.
* CharacterAsHimself: That's Minoru Shiraishi playing Minoru Shiraishi.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: He's abused pretty badly throughout the run of Lucky Channel, until he snaps...
%%* TheDogBitesBack: [[https://youtu.be/eyOBr5tKvGw?t=230 His epic breakdown]] in Episode 21's ''Lucky Channel''.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: InUniverse -- he notes how his popularity is beginning to far outstrip [[WhiteDwarfStarlet Akira's]]. In Episode 8's ''Lucky Channel'' he even boasts his own fan letters.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: He was nearly universally referred as "Sebastian" after a ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'' reference Konata made.
* EyesAlwaysShut: Except when he finally snapped, and in the final episode where it suddenly became green.
* GreenEyes: In the very final episode, his eyes were more detailed than when he was freaking out, it was revealed to be green.
* ImageSong: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wfdCE3Obcg Koi no Minoru Densetsu]]"
* InkSuitActor: The resemblance between [[TheDanza Minoru]] and [[Creator/MinoruShiraishi Minoru]] is quite notable.
%%* RageBreakingPoint: The Mount Fuji incident.

[[folder:Daisuke Ono]]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[CharacterAsHimself Himself]] (JP) and Creator/JohnnyYongBosch (EN)

Creator/DaisukeOno is an anime-only. In episodes 20 and 21, he replaces Minoru as Akira's assistant in ''Lucky Channel''.
* ActorAllusion: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]]; in this anime, he looks and acts rather a lot like Itsuki Koizumi from ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'', who he also voices.
%%* {{Bishonen}}: Just like the real thing...
* InkSuitActor: Like Shiraishi, the similarities between [[TheDanza Daisuke]] and [[Creator/DaisukeOno Daisuke]] is undeniable.
* SomethingAboutARose: He carries a rose around for no apparent reason.
* YesMan: To Akira, though unlike Minoru, he doesn't particularly seem scared of her.

[[folder:Yuko Goto]]
->'''Voiced by:''' [[CharacterAsHimself Herself]] (JP) and Creator/MeganHollingshead (EN)

Creator/YukoGoto is an anime-only. In episode 23, she comes in to break up Minoru and Akira's fight.
* AdamWesting: In real life, Goto is known for her enthusiasm about motorcycles and has made clear that she doesn't like being treated as a NiceGirl just because she's good at voicing them. Here, she's a straight-up delinquent.
%%* BadassBiker: A nod to her real-life enthusiasm for biker culture.
%%* FieryRedhead: Again, as in real life.
* InkSuitActor: Like Creator/DaisukeOno.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Red-eyed and quite scary.
%%* WoodenKatanasAreEvenBetter: Uses one to intimidate the Lucky Channel hosts.
