Voiced by: Daisuke Ono (Japanese), Matthew Mercer (English)

  • Berserk Button: Never insinuate that he's getting old.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: If you happen to be a member of Al-Thamen, he will utterly annihilate you without hesitation.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: The moment he stops smiling and goofing around, shit gets terrifying.
  • Big Bad: Shaping up to be this for the final arc.
  • Big Brother Instinct: He gained most of his younger household through protecting and saving them. This acts up when he's with Aladdin and co. as well.
  • Big Brother Mentor: He plays this role to most of his younger subordinates and allies, including Ja'far, Masrur, Sharrkan, Aladdin, Alibaba, and Hakuryuu.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Tends to do this a lot. Of note are defeating Al-Thamen in Balbadd, and bringing an entire army to deliver the final blow to the Medium in Magnostadt.
  • Big Good: Technically this is his role, and he does his best to fulfill it.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Not to a ridiculous extent, but his eyebrows are drawn noticeably thicker and darker than other characters. Which only makes him more strikingly attractive. He got them from his mother Esra.
  • Breakout Character: He gets his own spinoff manga.
  • Break the Haughty: Sinbad goes through this in the Umm Madaura arc of Adventure of Sinbad.
  • Broken Ace: Not only is he one of the most powerful people in the world, he's also conquered seven Dungeons, forged a country, and possesses a brilliant strategic mind. The series eventually unravels it to reveal a darker side to Sinbad. Sinbad resents the fact that he's become someone he never wanted to be, and moreover is halfway fallen into depravity and is growing more and more into being what he hates. By the start of the final arc, Sinbad has become the Big Bad, the farthest from what he wanted to be. .
  • Broken Pedestal: In Chapter 212, Alibaba saw the nasty side of Sinbad.
    • The prequels show Yunan and Sinbad being friends and inspiring each other. Yunan choose Sinbad the same way Aladdin choose Alibaba. Yet something seems to have caused a falling out leading to the present day acrimony.
  • Broken Tears: After being Made a Slave in Adventure of Sinbad, Sinbad is put through weeks of physical and psychological torture by Umm Madaura. It is so severe he stops reacting to anything at all. This continues until he is put to work a and finds a sick child among the slaves he is looking after. When he bring up the situation to the slave above him Madaura appears and Sindbad fears he will be punished again. Instead, she gives him motherly affection and tells him he did a good job. Despite knowing it is a trick, Sinbad finds himself unable to stop crying.
  • Brought Down to Badass: In the Balbadd arc. His Metal Vessels were stolen, yet he's not incompetent without them; he manages to be badass just with Magoi Manipulation and charisma.
  • The Chains of Commanding: It's implied that he never wanted to hold so much responsibility.
  • The Charmer: Perhaps unconsciously. Maybe
  • The Chessmaster: Just about every act of kindness or generosity he performs actually has an ulterior motive towards uniting the world. Whether or not this will cross into full-blown Utopia Justifies the Means territory remains to be seen.
  • Chick Magnet
  • The Chosen One: The very first Chosen One, actually. In fact, because all Djinn get some free will in deciding who to follow, he's been chosen seven times over. Then the Powers That Be said "that's enough".
  • Close-Call Haircut: Kougyoku's greeting when she hitchhikes on Hakuryuu's visit to Sindria.
  • Commitment Issues: Whenever marriage is brought up to Sinbad, he always waves off the idea, saying that he doesn't have any plans of ever getting married.
  • Cool Sword: One of his Metal Vessels. Adventure of Sinbad reveals that it's his father's sword.
  • The Corruption: Resists Ithnan's curse, because he is already halfway to The Dark Side.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Sinbad has always been reckless, but the thing is he's just strong enough to get away with it.
  • Cursed with Awesome: Sinbad's preexisting curse had let him use black Rukh along with the standard white Rukh, which can make his attacks significantly more powerful. There are obvious drawbacks to using this power though, but so far he hasn't succumbed to its influence.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: It's mentioned in the manga that Sinbad had suffered a huge, devastating loss (perhaps a loved one) at some point before the present, which pushed him off of his Wide-Eyed Idealist pedestal and into Anti-Hero territory.
  • The Dark Side: Sinbad is halfway "fallen". Why or how have not been revealed, but it somewhat explains his Manipulative Bastard tendencies. It's implied that whatever made him fall halfway is part of why David is connected to him. This balance is very tightly maintained; he hasn't committed any Kick the Dog acts yet..
  • Dork Knight
  • Drama-Preserving Handicap: He basically needed to lose his metal vessels at the start of the Balbadd arc to keep him from resolving everything in a matter of minutes.
  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: Sports these for awhile after being tortured when enslaved by Umm Madaura. He gets better.
  • Elemental Powers: Comes with his metal vessels. And with the equipment from seven different Djinn, he has quite a few. So far we have seen:
  • Even the Guys Want Him: So much Foe Romance Subtext with Judar.
  • Fights Like a Normal: During the Balbadd arc. Justified because all of his metal vessels were stolen.
  • Foil: Underneath his good-natured smile, Sinbad is the Darker and Edgier version of Alibaba.
  • Foreshadowing: There's a few hints that Sinbad is connected to or a reincarnation of David. He is revealed to be halway fallen into depravity fairly early on in the series. During that battle with Ithnan, Sinbad, referred to as the Singularity, is said to be Al-Thamen's most hated enemy besides Solomon. Arba's most hated enemy in Alma Toran was David, only betraying Solomon after she thought he had been eliminated. David also refers to himself as a Singularity in his creepy prophetic writings, and also says that Solomon is not a Singularity, but one will be born in the world that Solomon creates. The prequel series shows Sinbad growing in confidence as he becomes more experienced, but also becomes a bit of a megalomaniac. As time goes on, Sinbad shows himself to be more and more willing to manipulate or outright control people to protect his dream - brainwashing Kougyoku and interfering in the Kou civil war. At this point, Sinbad's Big Good card is in serious danger of getting revoked.
  • Former Teen Rebel: Sinbad was originally somewhat of a revolutionary, as the only reason why he entered his first dungeon was to get the power he needed to change his country.
  • Founder of the Kingdom: Created his own nation and as well his own alliance.
  • God Emperor: What he wants to become using Solomon's Wisdom. He is convinced a god emperor is needed to eliminate strife from the world. He also believes Solomon was wrong to reject the role.
  • Gold and White Are Divine: Sinbad's character design combines this with Purple Is Powerful.
  • Good Is Not Soft: He chastises Alibaba and Hakuryuu for their weaknesses, and is more than happy to use military might to crush anyone who threatens Sindria.
  • The Good King: He is unconditionally adored by his people, and puts them first in every situation.
  • Guile Hero: Lampshaded by Ja'far. It's not surprising considering the world he lives in.
  • Hand or Object Underwear: Does it even need an explanation? He's even given the nickname "Leaf King" in the Japanese fandom, which is especially funny because "Leaf King" is a homophone for "High King".
  • Handsome Lech: He's slept with countless women in his time, and made a move on twice that many. To the extent that his subordinates totally believe he took advantage of Kougyoku.
  • The Heart: Of all of Sindria, and especially his generals.
  • Hero of Another Story: Hell, with the way his past experiences have been alluded to, his story has easily taken up another adventure-packed manga series. See it yourself.
  • Honor Before Reason: There are many instances in which Sinbad has to choose between his duty as a world leader and his ideals. This largely reflects that, despite some of his other less morally shiny actions, Sinbad is at heart still the same idealistic young man who wanted to change the world he was in the beginning.
    • When a starving mother who was going to rob a noble's home is going to accept a piece of leftover food thrown on the ground by said noble, Sinbad stops her and lets her and her companions rob the noble as long as they don't kill anyone. Later he declares that he wants to help the Fog Troupe because the King is unjust, which is insane because he's the king of another sovereign nation and had even agreed to defeat said Fog Troupe for said unjust King. Then, he offers to provide refuge and haven for Fog Troupe rebels if the King of Balbadd tries to crush them without further negotiations.
      • This can also be considered an inversion of the trope, as Sinbad cares more about doing what's right than honoring his business dealings.
    • Subverted in Chapter 212, when Sinbad tells Alibaba that he will use any dirty trick to protect Sindria.
  • Hypocrite: Alibaba claims he is this, citing how Sinbad ostensibly is trying to make the world a better place for everyone but his actions just so happen to benefit the people that work for and agree with him the most and more than that put Sinbad himself in the most important positions of whatever he's involved in.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: His justification for becoming a Guile Hero.
  • Idiot Hair
  • Ignore the Fan Service: For all his hype as a Handsome Lech, Sinbad doesn't give the scandalously-clad ladies that much thought at his parties...
  • Improbable Age: He was only 14 years old when he conquered Baal and Valefor's dungeons.
  • In Harmony with Nature: Even as a child, Sinbad was able to sense the will and flow of the waves at sea.
  • Kid-anova: Even at age 14, he liked to flirt with girls, such as Princess Serendine and Hinahoho's little sister Pipirika.
  • Let's Get Dangerous: The first time Sinbad pulls out his Djinn Equip almost makes one forget that we met him wandering naked in a jungle.
  • Like Father, Like Son: He and his father are incredibly similar in both looks and personality.
  • Living Legend: There's basically no one in-universe who hasn't heard of Sinbad and his adventures. That the latter have been written down and published helps.
  • Magic Knight: He has a incredible amount of magoi, and is able to manipulate it even without any djinn vessels.
  • Magnetic Hero: He attracted an entire country's worth of followers.
  • Man in White: Befitting his kingly stature, as well as evoking a traditional image of the Arabian Nights.
    • It starts becoming the villain side of the trope as his darker side is revealed
  • Manipulative Bastard: Is quite willing to use manipulation and underhanded schemes to gain power, and to protect Sindria. Kougyoku has already become his puppet, before its revealed that he's been using her as a unwitting spy.
  • Made a Slave: Was forced into slavery due to the machinations of Umm Madaura, after he lost to a young Masrur during a colosseum match in Reim.
  • The Mentor: Towards most of his Eight Generals, and Alibaba too.
  • Mind Rape: Used Zepar to turn Kougyoku into a Manchurian Agent, and is possibly doing the same to two other people.
  • Mr. Exposition: Occasionally, due to his status as the Seen It All Always Someone Better Mentor.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Even in a series as chock full of fanservice as Magi, nobody does it half as good as Sinbad. Especially with official artwork like this.
  • The Munchausen: Played with in one omake. Though he did have legitimately amazing stories.
  • Mysterious Past: The only things known about his past in Magi are tantalizing mini-flashbacks Sinbad refers to when giving advice to the next generation. Averted with the Adventure of Sinbad spinoff manga, however.
  • Naked First Impression: Has this with Aladdin and Morgiana.
  • Naked People Are Funny: He even takes his clothes off while sleeping sometimes.
  • Nice Guy: In the beginning, while still running around naive and ignorant of political intrigue, Sinbad was at an ungodly level of nice. Hell, he was even nice to Ja'far when they first met. Now he's still nice but he's developed a dark side too.
  • Nice Hat: He's got a pimped out turban with feathers and jewels.
  • No Hero to His Valet: Most of the time, his generals totally do not give him the respect he deserves as Sindria's founder and king.
  • Not Brainwashed: Reveals to the Arba possessed Hakuei that he knows David is connected to him, but everything he's doing is his own will and not David's.
  • Not So Different: It's slowly revealed that while their execution is different, Sinbad is just as power-hungry as the Kou Empire. Only where Kou relies upon brute force, Sinbad tends to manipulate people into serving his needs.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Sinbad acts like a Pointy-Haired Boss a lot (he's even got the pointy hair!), but when he gets serious...

Eight Generals

Sindria Kingdom's strongest eight warriors and advisors to King Sinbad.

    In General 

    Jafar 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jafar_175311.jpg

One of Sinbad's eight generals who is immensely loyal towards him and frequently suffers as a result. He used to be a child assassin of the organization "Sham Lash", which served the Parthevia Empire.

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/masrur_175313.jpg

    Sharrkan 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sharrkan_197407.jpg

One of Sindria's eight generals. Regarded as the best swordsman in Sindria. He is assigned by Sinbad to train Alibaba in swordsmanship. Often gets into fights with a fellow general, Yamraiha. He came from Heliohapt.

Voiced by: Showtaro Morikubo (Japanese), Ray Chase (English)

  • Ambiguously Brown: Subverted. It takes a while, but we eventually discover that he comes from the Fantasy Counterpart Culture of Ancient Egypt, which makes his skin tone justified.
  • Badass Teacher
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Yamraiha.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Hurting or trying to kill Alibaba will result in it being pressed.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Has shades of this with Alibaba.
  • Bishōnen
  • Black Swords Are Better
  • Butt Monkey: His infatuation with Yamraiha is constantly played for laughs, if it doesn't involve kicking ass he's hopeless at it, and his kohai Masrur is always picking on him.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Word of God says that his biggest concern is how to approach Yamraiha.
  • Can't Act Perverted Toward a Love Interest: He's a womanizer who frequents brothels but can't do anything around Yamaraiha, except get into arguments with her.
  • Chained by Fashion
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Despite being something of a womanizer himself, he is disgusted by Sinbad's playboy ways, which could also be because Yamaraiha has been on the receiving end of them.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: When Yamraiha admits that Sinbad tried to grope her whilst drunk in the past, Sharrkan is clearly dismayed, even though the generals are all used to Sinbad's behavior.
    • Even better, after hearing that Yam's preference for older men with beards was because she couldn't get over her "first man" with whom she would bathe and stay up all night (in Pisti's words, but it's actually just her father figure, Mogamett), Sharrkan freaks out and goes straight to the Corner of Woe.
    • And when Yamraiha is fangirling over Yunan (a magic-user, the type of man Pisti said would be right for her), Sharrkan starts sweating. Profusely.
    • Non-romantic example: When Alibaba says that he had other mentors while training in Reim (Shambal at Magoi Manipulation and Muu at swordfighting), Sharrkan got pissed off and said he "felt betrayed", since he was supposed to be Alibaba's sole mentor.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond
  • The Exile: Sharrkan's reason for being in Sindria is because he was exiled from Heliohapt.
  • Glass Cannon: Sharrkan is very deadly with his sword, but has low stamina and low Magoi, so he can only use his household vessel for a few minutes in one go.
  • Handsome Lech: Spends a lot of time in the pleasure district.
  • Ladykiller in Love: This happened to him when he fell in love with Yamraiha. According to an answer Ohtaka gave to a question in the Magi Encyclopedia, this is why he hasn't really gotten anywhere with her. He can smooth talk a woman out of her clothes, but when he actually has feelings for the lady in question, he unfailingly manages to screw things up.
    "He has the technique but he's the type to lose his composure when he himself falls in love."
  • Master Swordsman
  • Sexy Mentor: Oh yeah.
  • Sword and Sorcerer: Sword to Yamraiha's Sorcerer. They do play mentor to the main Sword and Sorcerer pair in the series.
  • True Love Is Exceptional: His type of woman is the loose, easy kind that a man can have a quick score with. In other words, call girls and the like. However, he fell in love with Yamraiha, a woman who takes relationships very seriously and who is probably the farthest thing from "easy."
  • Tsundere: A little bit to Yamraiha. Most notably when he finds out about her preference for older men with beards.
    Sharrkan: "Hey, stupid girl! Look! Since you were so frustrated, I grew out a beard myself. I just felt like it though, okay? It's not like a did it for you or anything!"
  • Warrior Prince: Turns out his brother is the King of Heliohapt, but Sharrkan was deprived of his title.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Humorously, Sharrkan is embarrassed by women's belly buttons. He doesn't react to boobs or butts, but belly buttons. It's a cultural thing.
  • Whip Sword: Sort of how his Household Vessel works.
  • Work Hard, Play Hard: Very serious when it comes to swordplay, but refuses to practice once the allocated time is over.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: He puts Alibaba through some wrestling holds as punishment for having other mentors.

    Yamraiha 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5688_804139497.jpg

One of Sindria's eight generals who came from Magnostadt. She is a prodigious sorceress who specializes in water magic. Later on she is assigned by Sinbad to train Aladdin in magic manipulation. She often gets into fights with her fellow general Sharrkan.

    Hinahoho 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hinahoho_anime.png

The eldest of Sindria's eight generals, Hinahoho met Sinbad when they were still teenagers. He comes from the Imuchakk tribe in the far north. His wife died some time ago, leaving him alone to raise their children.

Voiced by: Keiji Fujiwara (Japanese), Tony Oliver (English)

    Pisti 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pisti_201107.jpg

One of Sindria's eight generals, she comes from Artemyra. While she looks like a young girl, she is in fact 18-years-old. She likes animals and breaking hearts.

Voiced by: Rumi Ookubo (Japanese), Christine Marie Cabanos (English)

    Spartos Leoxses 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/spartos_195837.jpg

One of Sindria's eight generals. He came from Sasan, a religious country and while he doesn't need to follow Sasan's religious teachings anymore, he still chooses to honor some of them.

Voiced by: Wataru Hatano (Japanese), Sam Riegel (English)

    Drakon 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/drakon_195835.jpg

One of Sindria's eight generals, stated by Sinbad to be "a sincere man". He was once a devoted soldier of the Parthevia Empire who opposed Sinbad.

Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita (Japanese), Patrick Seitz (English)

  • Affectionate Nickname: In his youth, he was called "Dragul Jr" or just "Junior" by his family and close friends.
  • Badass Cape
  • Bishounen: In the spin-off manga Adventure of Sinbad, we see that Drakon was once quite the looker.
  • Blue Blood: He comes from one of Parthevia's most distinguished noble military families.
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel to Barbarossa's Cain.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: He was in love with his childhood friend Serendine, princess of the Parthevia Empire. She cared for him too, but Drakon eventually moved on and married her handmaiden Sahel.
  • Emergency Transformation: It was because he was dying and needed power to escape from his brother along with the princess.
  • A Father to His Men: Is mentioned that he enjoys teaching his subordinates and seems to have a close relationship with them, in an extra, it is shown that they seem honored to be able to drink with him during the festival. And even when he was 14, he somewhat displayed this.
  • Foregone Conclusion: From Adventure of Sinbad, we know he will become a lizard man.
  • Four-Star Badass: While all of the Eight Generals technically fit this thanks to their titles, Drakon seems to fit the most, as the extras in Volume 9 imply that he is the commander of Sindria's armies.
  • Happily Married: To the most supportive and understanding wife in the world. Additional trivia tells us that he's a bit of a Henpecked Husband.
  • Improbable Age: See Young and in Charge below.
  • Lizard Folk: He has a draconian body.
  • Manly Tears: Drakon was on the run with Serendine and her maids for months after escaping from Parthevia. They go to Sindria Trading Company for refuge. Drakon asks Sinbad to look after the princess in his stead, believing himself to have become a monster undeserving of being in her presence. Sinbad tells him that he should continue to look after Serendine, saying that Drakon is still human and calling him a precious friend. Drakon is reduced to tears by Sinbad's kindness.
  • Meaningful Name: Subverted. At first it seems like he's called "Drakon" on account of his draconian appearance, but it's actually just a nickname given to him by Sinbad, because his actual name was too long. He only became a dragon after that.
  • Military Brat: Was the youngest son of a distinguished military family of Parthevia, and had this initial impression on Sinbad when they first met.
  • My Country, Right or Wrong: He was extremely devoted to Parthevia when he was young.
  • Nightmare Face
  • Oblivious to Love: Just as Serendine was originally oblivious to his love for her, Drakon was oblivious to his eventual wife Sahel's feelings.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: His real name isn't Drakon, or Junior, but everyone else calls him one or the other because his real name is very long.
  • Overly Long Name: Dragul Nol Henrius Govius Menudias Partenuvonomias Dumid Os Kortanon.
  • Ring of Power: Well, technically an Earring of Power, since that's his household vessel.
  • The Rival: Was this to Sinbad in their younger years.
  • Sibling Triangle: Serendine, the woman he loved, was engaged to his elder brother, Barbarossa.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes
  • This Is Unforgivable!: Combined with I'll Kill You!, this occurs for Drakon on two separate occasions; one Played for Drama and the other Played for Laughs.
    • Played humorously, when after he meets Sinbad in Baal's dungeon, and Sinbad then decides to shorten his name.
    • Played seriously, when after his elder brother Barbarossa tells him that he is a disgrace to their family, and then proceeds to condemn him to die in Valefor's dungeon.
  • Those Two Guys: He is seen together with Hinahoho most of the time.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: At some point, he went from being a Jerkass Blue Blood General to a loyal friend and retainer.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Though he didn't always look like this.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Sinbad, obviously, and in his youth he felt strong fealty towards Serendine.
  • Was Once a Man: He at one point fused with his household vessel, transforming him into his current draconian-like state.
  • Young and in Charge: He was made captain of an entire troop of men in order to conquer a dungeon, and then subsequently promoted to lieutenant—all at just 14 years of age.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Back when he was still human, his hair was dark green.
