- Blade on a Stick: Rei's Weapon of Choice; she can manipulate every physical aspect of her spears, and can do quite a lot with them.
- Dual Wielding
- Fragile Speedster: Rei's default fighting style; she relies on boosted speed and heightened reflexes to get her into and out of combat.
- Hime Cut
- Ms. Exposition: She explains to Akane (and later to Noa, much more briefly) what being a Magical Girl is all about.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Rei is the Blue Oni to Ysanne's Red.
- Warrior Therapist: What her power effectively makes her. Whether she can or Cannot Spit It Out is another matter, entirely.
- Awesomeness by Analysis: Her wish gave her the ability to learn everything there is to know about anything she looks at; she can't understand everything she absorbs all at once, however, so she has to be selective about what she learns to make it useful.
- Brought Down to Normal: Temporarily, due to Akane's wish. She promptly makes a contract with Kyubey again.
- Jumped at the Call
- My God, What Have I Done?: She throws up upon realizing she killed a person (who was mind-controlled and attempting to kill her sister, admittedly) on impulse.
- Reality Warper: A very limited one.
- Big Eater
- Destructive Saviour: Blasting a three-meter hole in the wall of a parking garage is "no biggie" for her. So is nearly destroying Yamanaka's central garden.
- Fiery Redhead
- Huge Schoolgirl: At 5'8", she towers over fellow Magical Girl Rei (who's 5'4", and is also taller than average).
- Kill It with Fire: One of her favorite ways to deal with Witches.
- Lightning Bruiser: Ysanne relies on her speed and firepower to deal with Witches, so she's a natural for this.
- Meaningful Name: "Taihou" means "cannon", which fits Ysanne perfectly. One can only wonder if the rest of the family is like her, since Taihou is their family name...
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Ysanne is the Red Oni to Rei's Blue.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: She used her wish to forget the Awful Truth about Magical Girls and to never learn about it again; this includes forgetting about her old friends. Her mind automatically wipes the related memories whenever they resurface.
- Attack Reflector: By pouring power into her default "nullification" power, she can do this.
- Bifurcated Weapon: The swords she creates can merge to form a BFS the size of a small car.
- Failure Knight: After a girl she was trying to save from a particularly vicious Alpha Bitch commited suicide, she wished she could stop people from hurting others.
- Skilled, but Na´ve: She is one of the two Magical Girls that has the most magical potential, but she is also fairly new to the darker side of the Magical Girl business: case in point, her reaction to the Demon victims in the park.
- Off with Her Head! - What Nazuna got in return for cutting off Rei's arm.
- Break the Cutie: She dove into a contract without too much thought about her Wish or any of the dark details about being a Magical Girl in this universe, then witnesses what happens to people when the Demons sucessfully drive them to suicide.
- Even the Girls Want Her: Ciel was attracted to her eyes.
- Dual Wielding - Alicia wields two guns.

Ciel Lan (Her full profile)
- Berserk Button: Threaten her friends or boyfriend if you want to find out just how angry she can get.
- Broken Bird: Not very obvious at first, but if you managed to trigger some bad memories from her early career...
- Busman's Holiday: She just wants a peaceful holiday in Japan, maybe with some new friends! Being meguca on holiday is still suffering.
- Dynamic Entry: How she saved Alicia's life from a Demon - she jumped off the top of a shopping mall and kicked it hard enough to allow another Magical Girl to finish it off with ease.
- Kick Chick
- Lightning Bruiser: Fast and hard-hitting, yet tough enough to just barely avoid being a Fragile Speedster.

- She's Got Legs: As a result of her wish.
- Stupid Sexy Flanders: Found herself attracted to Alicia's eyes.
- Wall Jump
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Not immediately obvious, but she dislikes escalators after what happened to her years ago.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Just like another famous blue haired Ciel
- Awesome by Analysis: A product of her wish for understanding.
- Awesome but Impractical: He weapon burns a good chunk of her magic which is why it's dangerous to use it on single demons.
- Captain Ethnic: Invoked with her moniker "Madame Edison."
- I Work Alone: Prefers to by far
- Large Ham: Gets carried away when she's in her magical girl persona.
- Light 'em Up: Her attacks revolve around light and her soul gem is shaped like a lightbulb.
- No Sell: Is immune to Shizuko's "invisibilty".
- Non-Standard Character Design: Due to her player's lack of talent compared to the folks at Magia.
- Phenotype Stereotype: Has blond hair and blue eyes.
- Theme Naming: Her name's an attempt to keep the "last name can be used as a first name" magica tradition.
Melody Harmonia (aka. Ryoko Shiki)
- Do Not Call Me Ryoko Shiki: She'll simply not respond to you if you do.
- Ret Gone and Real Life Writes the Plot: With Melody's RP deciding to leave the RP, this was the route taken instead of the other main method. She just no longer exists.
- Blade on a Stick: Inoue's weapon of choice.
