- Justified: he later explains to Tsubasa that he studied English hard enough so that one day he could go abroad and study to improve his farming techniques.

- Only One Name: Not only is he the only Magiranger to not have the surname Ozu, but also the only one with no surname period.

- Telepathy: One of his spells lets him read minds and scan memories.
Miyuki Ozu / Magi Mother (Azusa Watanabe)
- Dub Name Change: "Marie" in the Korean dub.
- Interspecies Romance: Miyuki is an ordinary human who married and had five children with a Heavenly Saint from Magitopia.

Isamu Ozu / Heavenly Saint Bragel / Wolzard Fire (Tsutomu Isobe)

- Papa Wolf: Case in point, what made Wolzard finally recall his true self was the instinct to protect Kai from N Ma.

- He will also do this when in a state of great despair. Again, only ever played for laughs.

- Verbal Tic: And possibly the longest one on record, degozarimasudesu!

- Missing Mom: Being born of a volcano, Smoky never had a mother.
- After Stage 26, Urara all but adopts him.
- Our Genies Are Different: Smoky, despite his bragging, doesn't actually have any special ability to grant wishes and has to work at making them come true like anyone else.
Yuka Yamazaki (Kaoru Hirata)
- Secret Secret-Keeper: Finds out that Kai is Magi Red in the movie, but chooses not to tell him.
Heavenly Saint Lunagel/Rin (Meibi Yamanouchi)

- The Older Immortal: Identified by Sungel as the eldest of the Heavenly Saints.
- Sleep-Mode Size: Snowgel first appears as a baby version of herself swaddled in a cocoon.
- Sour Outside, Sad Inside: She acts standoffish and is dismissive of the idea of the Ozu siblings defeating Infersia even if their dormant magic was awakened at first, but only because of the heartbreak from watching her disciple, Miyuki, and her fellow Heavenly Saints, Raigel and Blagel, fall to darkness despite their tremendous power.
- Super Empowering: Grants Miyuki the ability to become MagiMother, and her children their Legend Modes
- The Worf Effect: The only time we actually see her fight is against Hades God Drake, and she can't beat him even with the help of the Magirangers.
Heavenly Saint Magiel (Machiko Soga)
- Large and in Charge: A giant herself, but not quite as big as the Infershia Gods.
N Ma (Voices: Katsumi Shiono when he's sealed in a can, Daisuke Namikawa when released)
- Big Bad: Head of Infershia and the ultimate threat the Magirangers face.
- Bishounen Line: Downplayed. His final form is considerably more humanoid compared to his original, but he still looks like a hideous monster.
- Cthul Humanoid: Becomes more evident whenever he starts eating magic.
- Eldritch Abomination: Particularly his final form, he is even capable of consuming "time itself."
- Energy Absorption: His dreaded secret power? The ability to consume all magic and courage. Ultimately turned against him by the Magirangers feeding him too much to the point he explodes.
- Everything's Squishier with Cephalopods: His original form is of a giant, monstrous squid.
- Expy: His original form is one of Cthulu. The state he's in throughout most of the series, a single, fiery eye, is also a reference to Sauron.
- Extra Eyes: In his final incarnation he has four eyes, though one is always closed as a nod to the one that Blagel "stole" from him.
- God-Emperor: Even referred as a god by his subordinates, Infershia Pantheon included.
- Greater Scope Villain: He's established as top villain from the first episode, but spends most of the series sealed and needs his minions to actually put his plans in motion.

- Mind Rape: Merely seeing him is enough for Hikaru to be filled with a terrible of vision of his death.
- Omnicidal Maniac: Desires the destruction and consumption of all existence to fill the void within himself.

- The Voiceless: Initially, starts talking in his final form
Wolzard (Voice: Tsutomu Isobe)
- Animal Motifs: Wolves.

- The Dragon: During Branken and Meemy's "regimes".
- Evil Counterpart: He looks like an evil version of the Magirangers.
- Hero Killer: He takes out Miyuki early on and can keep up with the entire team in Legend Mode.
- Image Song: "Madou Kishi Wolzard"
- Joker Immunity: He gets blown up several times, and it never takes. There's a reason for that.
- Noble Demon: Tries to avoid killing anybody he doesn't feel is worth killing, and has a sort-of comradeship with the other villains, minus Branken because he attacks him more than once.
- Not Worth Killing: He repeatedly turns down chances to kill the Rangers. It turns out that his suppressed good side is forcing him to come up with these rationalizations.
- Our Centaurs Are Different: the WolCentaurus formation.
- Purple Is the New Black: Referred by Hikaru as the "black magician" in the same vein as the Magirangers' color titles.
- Weapon of Choice
Vancuria (Voice: Misa Watanabe)/Nai and Mea (Chiaki Horan and Tomomi Kitagami)
- Back from the Dead: Comes back to life automatically whenever she dies, immune to whatever killed her in the first place.
- Creepy Twins: Frequently transforms into a pair of Elegant Gothic Lolita. This is so she can have company after having lived for thousands of years.
- Diminishing Villain Threat: Is a huge danger initially, but after her first defeat, gradually becomes less and less of a threat to point where she/they are only around for comic relief.
- From a Single Cell: And can share it.
- Image Song: "Bloody Friday Nightmare", which the girls play in Stage 11.
- I Just Want to Have Friends: As a backstory, this is the reason she can split into Nai and Mea, being immortal meant she got so lonely she needed somebody to be around.
- Our Vampires Are Different: Is a Queen Vampire and is immune to the standard vampire weaknesses.
- Plucky Comic Relief: Nai and Mea become this increasingly as the series goes on.
- Story-Breaker Power: It's a good thing she didn't start sharing her immortality until the very end of the series.
Branken (Voice: Hisao Egawa)
- BFS: The Imperial Sword Hell Fang, which is one of N Ma's fangs forged into a sword.
- The Brute: He's the only major character unable to use magic.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: When in a bad mood, he'll lash out at most anything. Hence he and Wolzard are on poor terms.
- Mook Promotion: Branken used to be just another High Zobil, but clawed up the ranks to become the short tempered hot head we see him as in the show.
- Visual Pun: Steam blows out of his mechanical horn when he gets really angry. He's literally letting off steam.
Meemy (Voice: Yasuhiro Takato)
- A Pupil of Mine Until He Turned to Evil: To Blagel.
- Ambiguously Gay: He's quite fabulous.
- Animal Motifs: Centipedes.
- Beat Them at Their Own Game: He demonstrates mastery over the Rangers' specialty spells in his debut battle. This includes becoming a giant so large that Magi King only reaches up to his foot.
- Devil in Plain Sight: Even as Raigel back in the day, he was covered in Spikes of Villainy.
- Disc Two Final Boss
- Evil Feels Good: The driving factor behind his betrayal of the Heavenly Saints.
- Paper Fan of Doom: To be fair, it is a fan with a blade on it that doubles as a magic wand.
- Squishy Wizard: Subverted, he's still fully capable of physical combat in his original form.
- The Starscream: Was this his former comrades. To N Ma, he's serves loyally because he finds to be the quickest way to power.
- This Was His True Form: He briefly returns to his Heavenly Saint form as he dies.
The Infershia Gods
- Achilles' Heel: Drake's armor covers his entire body except for one spot on the back of his neck.
- Anti-Villain: Sphinx is less interested in destroying the surface, and more interested in making sure the Dark Precepts are followed.
- Badass: Sleipnir, considering even with Villain Forgot to Level Grind, he still easily beats Magi Legend in all three of his fights with it.
- Badass Bookworm: Sphinx is a lot more powerful than her appearance suggests. Her only direct fight with the Magirangers is a Curb-Stomp Battle. And in the last episode, she utterly trounces Dagon in a matter of seconds.
- Blood Knight: Drake, who isn't even interested in reviving N. Ma, just rampaging across the surface and breaking stuff.
- Boisterous Bruiser: Drake
- Character Tiers: In-Universe example. Interestingly, the leader is Dagon, a member of the middle tier.
- Five Warrior Gods: Titan, Cyclops, Toad, Ifrit, Wyvern
- Three Wise Gods: Dagon, Gorgon, Sphinx
- Two Ultimate Gods: Sleipnir, Drake
- Cold Sniper: Double Subverted with Cyclops; he can get extremely angry, but will simply stroke his chin to restore his calm demeanor.
- Cyber Cyclops: Cyclops.
- Dragon-in-Chief: Dagon to N Ma. Unlike Branken and Meemy, however, he is demoted to simply The Dragon after N Ma shows up.
- Expy: Toad is rather reminiscent in build, personality, and his love of games to the Oogie Boogie man.
- Faux Affably Evil: Wyvern likes to act cool and suave, but whenever someone damages this image, he flies into a blind rage.
- Fish People: Dagon has a giant red fish for a head.
- Gentle Giant: Titan has to be ordered to use his full power in battle, and ultimately pulls a Heel–Face Turn when given the opportunity.
- Graceful Loser: Cyclops, who despite his all round sadistic nature, congratulates the Magirangers for beating him.
- Hot-Blooded: Ifrit, to go with his power set.
- Implacable Man: Drake, it takes almost two straight episodes of fighting to take him down.
- Informed Ability: Wyvern claims that Dagon is the strongest of them, but we don't actually see much of anything to back that up because of how little fighting he does.
- In-Name-Only: Despite being named as such, Sleipner doesn't have anything in common with the creature his named after, even appearance.
- Jerkass: All of them save Titan have shades of this, but Dagon takes the cake.
- Make My Monster Grow: Inverted - being a giant is their default form. They only shrink if they feel like fighting the Rangers on their own terms.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: Drake's armor, much to Hikaru's horror.
- Weapon of Choice: Each God has one.
- Cyclops: Sniper Rifle
- Dagon: Prongs of Poseidon
- Drake: BFS
- Gorgon: Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me.
- Ifrit: Carry a Big Stick / Epic Flail
- Sleipnir: Jousting Lance / Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me/ Cool Sword
- Sphinx: BFG / Blade Below the Shoulder
- Titan: Double Weapon
- Toad: Drop the Hammer / Improbable Weapon User
- Wyvern: Blade on a Stick
