Characters: Negima: Magic World
That's right, Mahou Sensei Negima! is so overstuffed that it broke the folder system. Again. And it's still growing. So we decided to split the page. Again. This page is for the politicians, Ariadne girls and other residents of the Magic World. Time to pick up some dessert. We're almost done.This page is full of spoilers, naturally. You have been warned.

Governor-general of New Ostia. He introduced himself to Negi by taunting him about his mother Arika, and starting a fight in the streets. He apparently knows a lot about Negi's parents, as well as info concerning what happened during the war, including some things that even Jack Rakan admits to not knowing. He is an expert at Shinmeiryu swordplay, being Eishun's apprentice, as well as being something of a genius.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: A Senator, who fought alongside Ala Rubra and is exceptionally powerful and skilled.
- Badass: He really doesn't look it, but holy crap.
- Badass in a Nice Suit: always wearing a snazzy business suit, to boot.
- Becoming the Mask: He was unambiguously heroic 20 years ago. In the meantime, he infiltrated the corrupt senate, to find out more about and stop their villainy... but took on many more villainous characteristics, such as being a Smug Snake and exhibiting Fantastic Racism to an incredible degree.
- Crack Pairing: In-Universe in a manner of speaking: The finale suggest that he eventually gets married to Satomi Hakase, of all people. They never even met in the manga, though a note written on the class roster in chapter 351 suggests that Negi was planning to contact Kurt about Satomi after scouting her for his plan. He seems to have inadvertently played matchmaker.
- Evil Chancellor: Subverted. He certainly acts villainous at first, but he's actually just a dickish Well-Intentioned Extremist. His claims that he was responsible for the destruction of Negi's village are actually just a ruse to get Negi to view the Senate as an enemy and make him more pliable.
- Fantastic Racism: Subverted. At first it appears that he only cares about the 67 million humans in Megalomesembria, but it actually turns out he was just being ruthlessly practical: He knew of no way to save anyone besides them.
- Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Turns out to be a Subverted Trope later on - Godel's just incredibly, pragmatically cynical.
- Heel-Face Turn: After being beaten by Negi and then being beaten up again by Takamichi, he appears to accept his loss and starts backing Negi and Ala Alba.
- He Who Fights Monsters: He was clearly a good guy twenty years ago. Haruna identifies him as this trope immediately after seeing a flashback to that time.
- Hopeless Suitor: Has been in love with Arika ever since he was a kid, according to Nodoka's artifact, but she fell in love with Nagi.
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Unless his implied future wife Satomi Hakase grew much during the time skip, she's much shorter than him.
- Humiliation Conga: After he fails to turn Negi to his side, just about every member of Negi's team that's present either attacks Kurt, or does something to further ruin his plans.
- I Shall Taunt You: How he greeted Negi, and more or less every other line he ever uttered. It always works.
- Implausible Fencing Powers: He manages to cut Negi, even though Negi is made of lightning. He's a Shinmeiryuu swordsman.
- Insufferable Genius: He's identified as a genius, and is extremely smug about it.
- Jerkass: To be fair, his heart is in the right place. But does he have to be such a dick about it?
- Martyr Without a Cause: Possibly. According to Nodoka's artifact, he himself was not involved in the attack on Negi's village. However, Godel says that he has no intention of running from his sins and promises, once everything is over, to let Negi beat him to death if that's what it takes to satisfy Negi's desire for revenge.
- May-December Romance: See Crack Pairing above. Though they didn't meet then, Godel is likely to have been at least twice Hakase's age when she was in Junior High. After the time skip ending it's implied they got married.
- Minor Injury Overreaction: Played with. He uses a tiny splinter of stone cutting his cheek as an excuse to "defend himself."
- Smug Snake: He appears as this, but it turns out that it's an act, and he can kick Negi's ass.
- Teen Genius: Apparently one of these during his time with Ala Rubra... he was described as 'good at everything', and he taught himself Shinmeiryuu swordsmanship through mere observation before finally convincing Eishun to take him as an apprentice.
- Thanatos Gambit: He implies that whatever his plans were, it will come to fruition when Negi kills him. Unfortunately for him, Negi Out-Gambitted him by selecting his Genre Savvy confidant (Chisame) and a mind reader (Nodoka), both of which don't like to fight, and another noncombatant (Kazumi) as the three partners Godel let him bring.
- Understatement: 'If you're reading this, I suppose our little meeting didn't go very well' accompanied by a cheerful grin. This is after slicing up 'Asuna's' shoulder and inflicting wounds on Negi including a blow that removed his limbs, which was only temporary due to Negi being in lightning form.
- We Can Rule Together: He apparently wants Negi to restore his beloved Arika's name and honor in the Magic World. Then again, it's Godel we're talking about.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: knows he can't save every living thing in the Magic World, so he instead opts to just save the humans in Megalomesembria, since they have physical, non-magic bodies and wouldn't survive when the Magic World disappears and drops them on Mars.
The third Imperial Princess of the Hellas Empire and seems to serve as their primary diplomat. While publicly she appears refined and quiet, when she's away from the crowds and cameras she's quite the glompy Genki Girl. Furthermore, she is one of the strongest allies of Ala Rubra after they rescued her when she and Arika were imprisoned together.
- Absolute Cleavage: Her most well known outfit leaves her entire middle exposed. The main source of support with the clothes seems to be prayers and good fortune.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her clothing covers very little. Naturally, her stomach is not included.
- Beneath the Mask: She acts refined and quiet in public, when she's away from the crowds and cameras she's a Tomboy Princess and Genki Girl.

- Hopeless Suitor: Word Of God states that she wants to marry Rakan, but he still sees her as a child.
- Horned Humanoid: She has horns on the back of her head that curl around her skull.
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Jack Rakan is much bigger than her. This likely contributes her willingness Piggyback Cute with him as much as possible.
- Impossibly Cool Clothes: Yes, the bared midriff and Absolute Cleavage are nice but... how on Earth you are avoiding a Wardrobe Malfunction with that one lady?
- May-December Romance: She's 30, and her object of affection (Jack Rakan) is 50-60. Though given that they're both slow aging races, it's equivalent to a 15 year old teenager crushing on a 25-30 year old man. One way, since Jack met her as a child, and still sees her as one.
- Older Than She Looks: She's 30, but looks like in her early 20's.
- Overly Long Name: Her full name is Theodora Basileia Helladis de Vesperisszimia.
- Politically Active Princess: The primary diplomat of the Hellas Empire and known as the "voice of a country".
- Rapunzel Hair: She has very long hair.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: A diplomat and implied to be a fairly powerful mage as well. As the third Imperial princess, however, she is unlikely to inherit the throne.
- She Is All Grown Up: Was a cute young girl in the backstory, is now an adult and absolutely hot. Even Kotarou is stunned at the difference.
- Tomboy Princess: According to Rakan, which she takes slight offense to. To be fair, she really isn't very ladylike when not working.
- Tsurime Eyes: Her eyes are notably sharp.
- Underboobs: Yes, she managed to have Underboobs, Bare Your Midriff, and Absolute Cleavage all on the same outfit.
- Uptown Girl: A princess in love with the commoner warrior and once slave Rakan.
The current General Secretary of the Order of Magical Knights, Headmistress of Ariadne Girls Academy. She had field command of the Ariadne Magical Knights (at least) during the climactic final battle of the war, 20 years ago.
- Fangirl: Probably one of the very first Nagi ever had.
- Horned Humanoid: She has two medium-sized horns sprouting from her temples that sweep towards the back of her head and flare out at the ends
- Grandma, What Massive Hotness You Have: She's old enough to have a few wrinkles around her eyes and lips, yet she's still extremely hot.
- Older and Wiser: She helps Negi train for his bout with Rakan.
- Rapunzel Hair: It's down to mid-thigh at least.

A leader and manager of the local fighting arena, and the one who owns Ako, Akira and Natsumi after they sell themselves into slavery in order to get medicine. A complete Jerk Ass... okay, maybe not complete.
- Battle Aura: He scares off his friends when they want to take advantage of Ako's Take Me Instead attitude with this.
- Driven by Envy: Hinted to be why he's such a Jerk Ass. He also was a slave, and it took him almost twenty years to get free. Since Negi and Kotaro are buying the girls's freedom in less of a month via winning the Tournament, he's jealous like Hell.
- Get a Hold of Yourself Man: Beats up Negi when he says he can't win against Rakan.
- Hidden Depths: At one point, Ako and Akira burst in on him while he's reading a book of poetry by Charles Baudelaire. This doubles as a Genius Bonus.

- Kick the Dog: He gave quite the use to the electric collars that the slave girls wore. He promptly got his ass kicked by Negi and Mama Bear. And later, upon learning who Negi truly was, he tried to blackmail him into becoming his slave.
- Pet the Dog: Tosaka also does this, mainly by refusing Ako's Take Me Instead offer, telling Negi that his mom Arika was a Messianic Archetype and not a traitor and ultimately sacrificing his life for Ako.

- Bears Are Bad News: Averted, she's a good bear person. Played straight if you threaten her wards, though: She'll have NO mercy.
- I Was Quite a Looker: A flashback to her, Tosaka and the big guy's past shows that when she was young she was less, 'big full on furry bear woman' and more 'good looking girl who appeared mostly human but with bear's ears'.
- Mama Bear: It's in the name and the fur.
- Meido: She's dressed like one, wearing a short frilly dress and Zettai Ryouiki under the apron.
- Parental Substitute: She doesn't have kids, but takes care of the slave kids as if they were so.

Unnamed Cat Girl
A one panel character working as a waitress in Ostia that managed to portray so many tropes in one panel that she needed her own character entry. Totally not included as a joke, honest.

A mercenary association of which we get to see in action the seventeenth unit of the bounty-hunting division.This unit seems to consist of four people: Alexander "Twilight" Zaytsev- the captain of the unit nice nickname Chiko Tan, Razo, Paio II and Morborgran.
- A God I Am: Played for Laughs, Paio refers to herself as Chichigami (Boob Goddess)
- Chekhov's Gag: When Paio poses as 'Chichigami' at baths she is shown like a hindu goddess, with six arms and all, she use them (more) seriously against Yue.
- The Constant: Morbogram is one of the many Negima! characters that return in UQ Holder, with no apparent sign of aging and being a top contestant in the Mahora Martial Arts Tournament.
- Covert Pervert: Paio, although she doesn't try to hide it all that much

- It Must Be Mine: Paio's reaction to any boobies in near area
- One-Winged Angel: Zaytsev boast (in his thoughts) about a "more powerful form" but we don't get to see it because of Negi's Death Glare
- Our Demons Are Different: Morborgran is a skeletal humanoid with six arms, which he somehow hides two pairs under his coat, with the only conspicuous thing in his normal guise being his skull head adorned with ram two horns. Negi assumes he's a powerful Demon kin, so he doesn't hold back on Morbogram when saving Nodoka.
- Punch Clock Villain: Yes, they are ruthless badass bounty hunters. Yes, they attacked the heroes. Nodoka's mind reading revealed that Razo worries about his ill mother whom he sends money when he can, and Morborgran is a lot more sensitive than his skeletal demon body implies. Paio II, on the other hand, just wants to get her hands on some boobies (literally).
