dislike of men, which stems from her experience of her father walking out on their family, leaving them with a large debt which she is trying to help work off with a part-time job at a Maid Cafe.

- Action Girl: She is trained in aikido.
- Adorkable: When it comes to normal social functions.
- Attempted Rape: Had this pulled on her at least three times during the manga. In two cases Usui intervenes; in another, she curbstomps her assailants all by herself.

- Color Motifs: As described by Takumi, the color that symbolizes Misaki the most is white.Takumi: "Walking along the path she [Misaki] chose without being affected by others. In this sense, white's her color."
- Death Glare: A lot of the time, particularly when she's angry, but it's Played for Laughs. Unless she's in the cafe, then it's Dissonant Serenity.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: Basically the series revolves around her warming up to the people around her, including Usui.
- Does Not Like Men: Stemming from when her father left their family with a huge debt. Most of the boys at her school don't exactly inspire trust.
- Does Not Know Her Own Strength: Not that she cares, so long as it keeps the guys/girls in line.

Most of the other (male) competitors can't finish the course; Misaki comes in second.
- Even the Girls Want Her: Other girls certainly enjoy ogling over her skills or looks (including the entire Maid Latte staff and her two friends). One even says she has a "prince-type character", and her Bifauxnen looks attract tons of chicks in episode 7. Helps that she looks great as a boy.
- First Kiss: Props to Takumi for not wasting time and planting one on Misaki in the sixth episode!

- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Misaki is brash and critical, especially towards men. However, while she may dislike men more than women, she will still help them if needed.
- Lethal Chef: She claims that if someone teaches her, she can cook rather well. We mostly haven't seen it; her attempts at riceballs turned out round, perfectly smooth, and hard as rock, and other efforts range from "mangled" to "yuck."
- Love Triangle: Between her, Takumi, and Hinata. Unfortunately for Hinata, the result isn't really in question.

- Ninja Maid: Misaki knows aikido.
- Paper-Thin Disguise: Misaki tried to disguise herself and enter the all-you-can-eat contest at Maid Latte in order to help Erika; and everyone who knew her basically recognized her immediately. Even Hinata got suspicious by the end of it.

- Slasher Smile: Usually when someone ticks her off.
- Straw Feminist: Subverted. She looks like one at first, but it's shown that her sense of justice is not limited to the girls. A lot of the boys just tend to be delinquents for no apparent reason and don't exactly inspire confidence.
- Student Council President: It's even in the title! Subverted in last arc when Kanou is elected.
- Sweet Polly Oliver: When entering the butler competition, as well as the time she had to help Erika avoid a bad situation with a Stalker with a Crush customer. Basically, she gets made over Visual Kei-style into "Bisanki-kun" and has to enter a dessert eating contest.

- Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She may be a loud and commanding class president, but she still allows herself to wear dresses and likes gentlemanly guys.

- Notably, she fits the traditional description of a Tsundere - she warms up to Usui after initially hating him.
- Unwillingly Girly Tomboy: Misaki works at a maid cafe in order to help make ends meet. This causes a lot of dissonance with those in the know, because they don't expect to see their tomboyish president all dolled up. She is, notably, rather good at the Meido shtick, but is always happy to cast off the outfit.

In the manga, he also gets to come to the rescue when Misaki is ambushed at Maid Latte after closing by a pair of stalkers; he kicks a stun gun out of one guy's hand while Misaki handles the other one. It's subverted in the anime, however: he tries, but Misaki curbstomps both of them before he manages to do more than break in a window, and he only gets to help with the cleanup.
- A Boy and His X: A Boy and His Cat. Takumi has a dark blue cat named Licht (meaning "light" in German) which he found on the street. Misaki chose the name for the cat.
- But Not Too Foreign: Takumi is revealed to be this. Being the illegitimate child of an Englishwoman accounts for his blonde hair. His birth name is revealed to be Takumi Walker, but due to his unfavorable status within the family he abandoned the name at a young age and was later adopted into the Usui household.
- Casual Danger Dialogue: Hardly ever seems to take dangerous situations seriously.
- Chick Magnet: Takumi is very handsome, and most of the girls who see him fall for his looks instantly (thus, resulting in many broken hearted girls).
- Chivalrous Pervert: Towards Misaki, at least; he shows no interest in any other girls.
- Crazy Jealous Guy: Takumi doesn't go to yandere levels, but he's quite territorial whenever some guy(s) take an interest in Misaki.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: He hasn't lost a single competition he's entered. Any competition. Not even the time he had a broken arm.
- Even the Guys Want Him: He even provides the page picture!
- Expy: He's a more aloof version of Tamaki Suou from Ouran High School Host Club. Both are handsome, popular, light-haired heroic bastards who are the child of a Caucasian woman and Japanese father. They also both wind up with Single-Target Sexuality for a brilliant student leading a double life involving getting dressed up. They both are also extremely skilled with a stringed instrument.
- Generation Xerox: In context, his mother fell in love with his Japanese father, a butler.

- Green Eyes: Shares this trope with his older brother.

- Mr. Fanservice
- No Sense of Personal Space: Just ask Misaki.
- Not So Stoic: He's actually quite childish, prone to jealousy, and exhibits possessive tendencies underneath the typical cool-guy exterior. It's these slowly-revealed qualities that provide him with some truly stellar Character Development and Hidden Depths. Plus, the childish attributes almost always prove to be adorably endearing.
- In the Beach Episode he went so far as to kiss Misaki on the back and claim it left a visible mark to make her too embarrassed to run around in a bikini. He also competed against her and Aoi in the volleyball tournament because he didn't want her to be the "beach queen".

Voiced by: Atsushi Abe (Japanese), Santry Rush (English)Misaki's childhood friend, who came to the city just to find her.

She is very intelligent and good in math, but dislikes physical activities. She is a member of the school's flower arranging club. Like Sakura, she does not know about Misaki's parttime job. According to Sakura, she has an older brother studying in university and a younger sister in junior high who look a lot like her.

- The Smart Girl
- The Stoic
- Stoic Spectacles
- Those Two Girls: With Sakura.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Shizuko isn't exactly a tomboy, but fits the role in her friendship with Sakura, being much more plain, prosaic, and uninterested in things like bands and dating.

Voiced by: Kosuke Toriumi (Japanese), Tyler Galindo (English)A withdrawn male student who is initially against Misaki as the student council president because of her aspirations of increasing the female population of Seika High. In order to sabotage her presidency, Kanou tries to hypnotize Misaki, Usui, and the student council into ruining Misaki’s reputation. It is revealed that his gynophobic attitude comes from his mother abandoning his family when he was young and his father warning him to be wary of women. After being forced to work with girls by Misaki as punishment, he starts to get over his gynophobia and later becomes one of the president's allies.

- Genre Savvy
- Heel–Face Turn

- Shipper on Deck: For Takumi and Misaki.
- Stoic Spectacles
- Straw Misogynist: To an extent, he's extremely uncomfortable around women and doesn't want them in positions of power, but this stems from a case of Parental Abandonment. He grows out of it once proven wrong.
- Student Council President: In the last arc.
- Those Two Guys: With Yukimura later on in the story.
- When He Smiles: Kanou doesn't smile pleasantly that much. So during the scene where he smiles slightly and sincerely after putting a girl at ease on Misaki's behest, many a fangirl were stunned. Then they squeed. Hard.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair
A mysterious, beautiful teacher who transferred to Seika. At first, Misaki seemed to view her as a rival for Usui's affections but it's eventually revealed that she is, in fact in love with Misaki after seeing her strength and independence (it should be noted, though, that she's fallen in love many times before). She came to Seika to try to get Usui to transfer to Miyabigaoka under Igarashi Tora's orders. She has a fiance named Shinji.
- Alliterative Name
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Is revealed to be in league with Igarashi with the sole purpose of pressuring Usui to attend Miyabigaoka Academy.

- Unsettling Gender Reveal: Who knew that sweet, cute internet idol Aoi was really a guy?
- Wholesome Crossdresser
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair
Voiced by: Kana Asumi (Japanese), Jennifer Gilbert (English)An employee at Maid Latte. She possesses a rather maniacal side to her, and is annoyed at Misaki's resistance to her job. She makes a living from part-time work and does not have a full-time job. She takes working at Maid Latte very seriously, which causes friction between her and Misaki over the fact that Misaki is ashamed of working there.

Voiced by: Mariya Ise (Japanese), Kasi Hollowell (English)Another of the employees at Maid Latte. She views Misaki as strong and independent and sometimes finds it hard to believe that Misaki is younger than her. Is also proud of her... assets.

Misaki and Suzuna's Father
Usui's British older half-brother, who looks like an older, more polished version of him.
Voiced by: Sanae Kobayashi (anime) (Japanese), Beth Lazarou (English)Satsuki's younger sister and Aoi's aunt. She's very hard on Aoi's crossdressing because her older brother (Aoi's father) disapproves of it. Her shop Ocean House isn't getting as many customers as she would like, so naturally the Maid Latte girls (+Usui) head to it to help, thus the Beach Episode.
