Characters: Negima Class 3 A
That's right, Mahou Sensei Negima!
is so overstuffed
that it broke the folder system, and it's just going to get worse from here. So we decided to split the page. Again. This page is for the rest of Class 3-A. Time to go grab a soda to wash down those two sandwiches.This page is full of spoilers, naturally. You have been warned.

Chao Lingshen is class 3A's top scoring and multitalented
student. She runs the successful business Chao Bao Zi, is talented in martial arts, a member of the Eastern medicine research group and the head of the Mahora quantum physics department. She's good at everything.
She is the antagonist of the Mahorafest arc, but her upstanding moral behavior, refusal to lie and genuine good intentions leave the group conflicted about how to handle her.
- The Ace: A key member of several local university clubs (including the quantum physics one), a successful entrepreneur, proficient martial artist and deadly mage, all at the ripe old age of fourteen.
- Anime Chinese Girl: She has the name, the clothes and the hair, but may not be the genuine article.
- Arc Villain: She was the primary antagonist of the Mahorafest arc with Negi's primary struggle being that there isn't a particularly convincing case that she's doing anything wrong.
- Attack Drone: She included four of these in her Powered Armor for the climax of the Festival Arc.
- Bare-Fisted Monk: At the time of Mahorafest, Chao is about skilled as as Ku Fei in Chinese Martial Arts.
- Beam Spam: During her fight with Negi, she has small floating drones flying around spamming attacks at Negi.
- Blush Sticker: She has two permanently rosy spots on her cheeks. While it'd seem that it is meant to make her cuter and different from other characters, it turns out to be the only normally visible part of the Facial Markings from her Deadly Upgrade.
- Boke: Even Setsuna gets to make Tsukkomi on her.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Self-described Mad Scientist? Yes. The Ace who can do anything, to the point of apparently inventing Time Travel? Yep.
- Chekhov's Gunman: She's quite unimportant and unrelated to the plot with Negi noting he needs to get to know her better when suddenly she takes center stage during Mahorafest.
- Clothes Make the Superman: Her futuristic battlesuit with a Time Travel mechanism built in makes her one of the strongest combatants present.
- Conqueror From The Future: She doesn't look like one at first since her only stated goal is to break The Masquerade, but then you see her character notes where she has a particular fondness for world domination.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: When Setsuna and Kaede intercept Chao right before she finishes off Negi, she uses time stop abilities to show they can't do a thing to her. Later, she steps it up and adds real violence to the equation against Setsuna and Asuna during the climax.
- Deadly Upgrade: She's incapable of using magic properly, so at the end of her fight with Negi she activates some odd ability that normally seals her power and instead uses it to force magic into her body, which causes immense pain.
- Hartman Hips: Only motherly Chizuru has hips larger than Chao, while every other one of Chao's measurements are on the petite to average side.
- Hero Antagonist: She is the primary antagonist of the Mahorafest arc, but she's so well-meaning and subdued in her methods — refusing to kill or lie — even other characters aren't too sure whether they were right in trying to stop her. The only reason Negi opposes her in the end is, basically, to avoid the Cool and Unusual Punishment he would incur from the authorities if he didn't. And because she absolutely refuses to explain her actions, despite the fact that he'd agree with her if she did. She's a pretty good sport when she loses too and there are hints that she was fine with either outcome.
- Hidden Agenda Villain: Chao tells us what her plans are early on and she's not lying. However, she's withholding a lot of crucial information and her attitude makes it difficult to tell what she's trying to accomplish. Her goals only become more unclear when more information about the setting is revealed especially since time travel can't fix her world at all.
- Irony: A lot of the arguments and statements made about Chao and her plan look different by the end of the Magic World arc. For example, Yue's arguments to Negi about the time period she picked suddenly don't hold much weight nor Negi's upset speech about the tattoos that give Chao magic. For the former, the collapse of the Magic World is a far bigger disaster than WWII and for the latter, Magia Erebea makes Negi's concern about Chao using dangerous powers laughable.
- Luke, You Are My Father: Claims to be Negi's time traveling descendant to the future. People do not take it seriously. At first.
- Mad Scientist: She and Hakase claim they sold their souls to science.
- More Dakka: One of her attacks doesn't even need a gun to do it!
- Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: At one point, it's complained that she's adding in way too many traits to her character profile, notably claiming to be a time traveling martian descended from Negi. It's true, though. Technically.
- Odango Hair: As expected from an Anime Chinese Girl.
- Playing with Fire: Casts a massive fire spell at Negi after forcibly unsealing her magic. Her incantation is too slow, however.
- Powered Armor: She wears a set of armor that allows her to fly and supports her Cassiopeia. There are also gloves that allow her to use a disabling electric punch.
- Put on a Bus: After her arc, she returns to the future. We see her again after Asuna woke up after 130 years asleep.
- Renaissance Man: She can cook, runs a business taking in hundreds of millions of yen, is an excellent hand to hand fighter, helped develop a genuine AI, appears to have invented time travel, is a talented tactician, has good knowledge of Eastern medicine and is a highly competent mage.
- Sarcastic Confession: When she gives out her real identity as a martian, Setsuna gives her a Dope Slap.
- Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Her goal is to reveal the existence of magic to prevent some tragedy she refuses to elaborate on, though she hints it's merely a personal tragedy rather than something of massive proportions. Turns out it was an attempt to avoid the collapse of the Magic World and the war that would follow it.
- Slipknot Ponytail: During a battle with Negi, one of her hairbuns come undone.
- Teen Genius: Word Of God has her IQ to be around 300. "Maybe even seriously."
- Thigh-High Boots: In her outfit seen above.
- Thou Shalt Not Kill: She makes sure none of her robots or allies kill anyone, giving them stripping beams and (when that proves insufficient to convince people to stop), time-displacement bullets.
- Time Master: She can induce time stop effects, travel back and forward in time and possesses bullets that launch the target into the future.
- Time Stands Still: With a series of rapid time jumps, she can make a pseudo time stop effect
- ‹bermensch: She rejects the status quo set by mages and attempts to force them into the open to prevent more tragedies. She avoids causing permanent damage in the process. Finally, while it doesn't come up in the story she really likes world conquest but hates the idea of one superpower bullying lesser powers.
- Verbal Tic: True to type, she overuses the emphatic particles yo and ne.
- Will Not Tell a Lie: States numerous times that "Martians don't tell lies." This doesn't prevent her from withholding all sorts of information.
- You Are Too Late: Tricks Negi's group into being stuck a week in the future and leaves a gloating message about it, but they manage to undo it by using residual magic left at the world tree.
Evangeline Athanasia Katherine Mc Dowell
Evangeline is the first antagonist of the series and is an ancient and extremely powerful vampire stuck in the form of a ten year old girl. Thanks to Negi's father, she has been bound into the Mahora school grounds without any of her magical powers. While Nagi initially intended to let her go in a few years, he first forgot to let her go and then vanished, leaving her both bitter and extremely bored. She picks a fight with Negi to relieve her frustration and some time later becomes Negi's master and primary magic teacher.
She's sarcastic and unfriendly, but it's clear she cares about her classmates
after awhile. She has a special interest in first Negi and later Asuna and Setsuna and helps guide all three in her own way. She also acts as a sort of mother figure to Chachamaru and encourages her emotional development, though the two pick on each other a great deal. On a personal level, she is possibly the strongest character shown in the series with one notable exception. It's hard to beat someone with a Healing Factor
that has no shown limits.

Mana is a supposedly
ex-mercenary with a fondness for magical equipment and firearms. She blatantly sells her services to the highest bidder, but despite her claims she does seem to have her own sense of honor. Since her moral sense doesn't quite match up with Negi despite their mutual respect, the two can easily come into conflict.
Mana looks much older than most of her classmates and cannot pass for her age or even as a high schooler. She has a rivalry with Kaede and despite or perhaps because of her serious attitude she can say some silly things earnestly.

Ayaka is the Class Representative
of 2/3-A, a filthy-rich lady, and Asuna's best friend and rival
of sorts. She has a reputation as a shotacon
and intense reactions to Negi, though hints abound that she may be seeing him as a Replacement Goldfish
for a stillborn little brother who would've been around Negi's age. Kotaro later moves into her room and the pair quite explicitly fail to get along as well as Ayaka and Negi do.
Somehow able to understand Zazie Rainyday's silence even over the phone, which is apparently due simply to being a good class representative.
Zazie is the one member of Class 2/3-A that's gotten almost no Character Development
at all. From what little information is given on her, she almost never speaks
, appears to be some sort of circus performer, and has a number of weird black ghost blobs that accompany her everywhere. She can also apparently see Sayo. Her classmates are aware of her oddities and don't really know what to think of her.
Class 2/3-A's other
resident supergenius after Chao, Hakase is basically a Mad Scientist
. Apparently aware of the existence of magic long before the series started, Hakase is primarily interested in its scientific applications and the development of Magitek
, resulting in Chachamaru, who, with Evangeline's help, was developed as a joint product of magic and science. Personality-wise, Hakase is somewhat obsessive about her work, often working so late she simply falls asleep in the lab. She also approaches things from a very logical perspective, meaning that she often fails to consider how her experiments might affect others personally

Satsuki is one of the few mature students in class 3-A and both knows what she wants and knows how she'll get it. She's an excellent cook
and helps run Chao Bao Zi, which is something of a safe ground due to her popularity with both staff and students, who do not wish to make her angry by picking fights at her food stand.
Naomi Inoue (Japanese) and Monica Rial
Misora is one of the mage students at Mahora, though apparently only because her parents want her to be. She works under Sister Shakti as an apprentice and goes around dressed as a nun when doing mage work, which she treats with about the respect you'd give a part time job. She's fond of pranks, gossiping and pretending she has nothing to do with what's going on.
She has a pactio with Cocone that grants her a pair of shoes that give her super speed, which she uses almost exclusively to run away from danger.

Chizuru is the motherly and caring roommate of Natsumi. She serves as something of a big sister figure for Kotaro, who is somewhat terrified of her. A natural conclusion for him to reach since she can be rather scary in general.

- Armor-Piercing Slap: To Graf Herrmann, which impresses him enough to kidnap her.
- Ass Shove: One Running Gag has her trying to cure ailments by shoving spring onions up the rears of those afflicted — usually Kotaro, to his neverending terror. In fact, her Pactio card is one such leek. She uses it on Negi in order to force him to talk about something he considers private.
- Beauty Mark: Has one under her left eye.
- Berserk Button: Don't call her old or mature, much less insinuate so. Just don't.
- Beware the Nice Ones: There's a few scoops of psychosis layered in with all that maternal benevolence.
- Cool Big Sis: She acts as a big sister figure to Natsumi and later Kotaro. Well, perhaps more motherly than sisterly, but if you say that she'll probably kill you.
- Expy: Of Love Hina's Mutsumi.
- Feminine Women Can Cook: Seems to take care of most of this sort of thing around her dorm room.
- Gag Boobs: Negi somehow gets caught in her bathing suit and nearly drowns.
- Healing Shiv: Her artifact, sorta. It heals status ailments in a highly unpleasant manner.
- Indifferent Beauty: She's beautiful, mature and busty, but doesn't really seem to care.
- Mama Bear: Gives Graf Herrmann one hell of an Armor-Piercing Slap for threatening Kotaro.
- Marshmallow Hell: One of the more notable examples in the series that named the trope, at one point Negi somehow got caught in her bikini top. She made no real attempt to extricate him, opting rather to giggle at the situation while Negi struggled to breathe. Also, when Kotaro showed up again and started threatening her and Natsumi, she simply marshmallow hell-brainwashed him.
- Memetic Badass: An In-Universe example: World class fighter Kotaro is still terrified of her and her leeks.
- Mind-Control Device: The leek in her Pactio. In exchange for her... shoving it up somone's ass, it heals the target in exchange for obedience to her until it wears off.
- Ojou: Apparently as rich as Ayaka, and is perhaps the main reason they are close friends and share a dorm room. According to Kotarou, the Naba family seems to be into heavy industries.
- Ojou Ringlets: Has somewhat smaller versions of the hair style, and she's eventually revealed to come from a wealthy background just like Ayaka.
- Rapunzel Hair: She has hair to around her waist.
- Running Gag: Um, Chizuru, what are you about to do with that leek?
- Shipper on Deck: She ships Kotaro/Natsumi pretty quickly, and even starts setting it up.
- Spoiled Sweet: Sweet, caring and revealed to be as rich as Ayaka.
- Tastes Like Friendship/Through His Stomach: Helps to facilitate Kotaro's Heel-Face Turn.
- The Tease: Became like this towards Kotaro after the main Magic World arc.
- Took a Level in Jerkass: During the Sports Festival, she rams her pactio leeks up Negi's ass in a childish attempt to find out who he likes. Her pactio leeks have a mind control effect, upping the ante that much more.
- Yamato Nadeshiko: A kind and reserved Japanese girl that lets no one endanger her charge.
- Younger than She Looks: She's one of the younger students despite being the most well-endowed and one of the more mature ones.
Narutaki Fuka and Fumika
|Fumika (Right):||Fuka (Left):|
The cheerful childlike
twins of Class 2/3-A, the Narutaki twins are known for their rambunctiousness
, with an apparent hobby of catching people off-guard with their appearances fit for a nine-year-old. They're also good friends of Kaede, who has taught them some basic techniques of her craft.

Fumika (left) is voiced by: Mari Kanou (Japanese) and Alison Viktorin (English, Mahou Sensei Negima! and Negima!?) and Holly Franklin (English, Ala Alba onwards)
- Babies Ever After: First to have children among the heroes... and they both had twins.
- Bokukko: Fuka
- Cheerful Children: They look the part, at least. See below.
- Genki Girls: All-cheerful, all the time.
- Girlish Pigtails: Fuka
- Good Eyes, Evil Eyes: The more mischievous Fuuka has much narrower eyes than her more hesitant sister.
- Hot Moms: They were the first to have kids and just look at them.
- Interspecies Romance: They both marry Hellas princes. Twin princes, which probably makes this a Theme Pairing.
- Ninja: Apprenticed under Kaede. Still beginners, but can at least make illusionary clones.
- Odango Hair: Fumika.
- Older than They Look: They're fifteen, yet still manage to get grade-school student discounts at movie theaters.
- Polar Opposite Twins: Fuka is a troublemaking prankster, while Fumika constantly worries about the trouble the former may bring. However, they can act as Single-Minded Twins, but only when they agree.
- Rags to Riches: They weren't poor, but were still on the middle-class side. Then they married Hellas princes.
- Rose Haired Girls: In the first half of the Negima! anime.
- Theme Twin Naming: Fuuka and Fumika Narutaki.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Fuka's the tomboy, Fumika the girly girl.
- Trickster Twins: The pranks they play on Negi during their spotlight chapter/episode include editing his class roster. "Mature tastes" and "exceptional technique" indeed.
Misa is more or less a stereotypical cheerleader. She and her fellow cheerleaders Sakurako and Madoka love to hang out, shop, wear stylish clothes, and talk about boys. She's also the vocalist/guitarist of their band "Dekopin Rocket". Misa is the only student said to have an actual long-term boyfriend, though it's implied to be not that serious (and said boyfriend seems to have vanished altogether post-Mundus Magicus). She's best remembered for proposing a "Reverse Hikaru Genji Project
" for Negi, after seeing just how cool he was in the Mahora Budokai. Although she followed Negi to the gate to Mundus Magicus with Yuna and the others, she was not transported there.

Sakurako's biggest claim to fame is her otherworldly luck
. Otherwise, she's just another cheerleader, doing what cheerleaders usually do. She's also the guitarist and main vocalist of "Dekopin Rocket", a band consisting of her and her fellow cheerleaders Misa and Madoka.

- Alliterative Name: English only.
- Born Lucky: Never bet against Sakurako. You will lose. This ability came in handy when Yuna, Makie, and the rest of the group following Ala Alba got lost on a fog on the way to the gate to Mundus Magicus. The odds of a normal human making it though the fog were, according to Donet McGuinness, about equal to a standard lottery odds, but Sakurako led them through. Word Of God even states that were she to get a Pactio, she could increase her partner's luck.
- The Cheerleader: Much nicer than the standard stereotype.
- Cherry Blossom Girl: Named Sakurako and related to luck.
- Date Peepers: See Misa's entry.
- Genki Girl: Almost as cheerful as the Narutaki twins.
- Girlish Pigtails: Has two sets of them.
- Hive Mind: With Misa and Madoka in Negima!?.
- Idol Singer: Not as much as Misa, but she also happens to be the main vocalist of Dekopin Rocket.
- Instant Cosplay Surprise: Sans the "surprise" element — she, Misa and Madoka did it to themselves to peep on Konoka and Negi without being noticed.
The third cheerleader, Madoka appears to be one of the only two Ordinary High School Students
left in Class 2/3-A
besides Misa. She is also the drummer for "Dekopin Rocket". She appears to have a crush on an aged-up
Kotaro, though is also a bit boyish, and is apparently
an Avril Lavigne
