The main characters of the story. At first, it was just Doremi, but she was joined by her friends Hazuki and Aiko and formed a Power Trio. Pop joined when she uncovered their secret. Onpu arrived as a rival, but later joined them when they saved her. Together, they had to take care of Hana to get their powers back. Later, Momoko arrived to aid them on their third attempt at becoming Witches. All but Hana choose to give up being Witches in the end.
Tropes shared by all of them
- A Day in the Limelight: Each girl gets several of these as the series goes on. Though Momoko only gets these during Motto, Dokkan, and Naisho since she appeared in those seasons only. A similar case with Hana, though she gets them during Sharp too.
- Adorkable: All of the girls have this to some extent, some more so than others, particularly Doremi, Hazuki, and Momoko.
- The Apprentices: All of them are under the tutelage of Witches that some of them have called out and inadvertently cursed. They remain this way all series long except for several short and scattered scenes when they have their respective crystals.
- Badass Adorable: They are all young girls who can use magic that can do almost anything. And they will use it if given a reason to.
- Beware the Nice Ones: All of them (including Hazuki) have their moments, if pushed too far.
- Blush Sticker: All of them have had these at some point.
- Color-Coded Characters: Doremi is pink, Hazuki is orange, Aiko is blue, Pop is red, Onpu is purple, Momoko is yellow, and Hana is white.
- Curtains Match the Window: All the girls except Doremi (who has red hair and literal pink eyes) and Hana (who has blonde hair and brown eyes).
- Cute Witches: They all almost always use their magic to help out others and for mundane tasks throughout the series. The few times they do fight, they have to use unorthodox methods such as conjuring fans, random elements; very rarely do they use simple energy attacks.
- Friend or Idol Decision: At the end of Dokkan, the Ojamajos are asked if they wish to become full time Witches or return to being normal girls. They choose the latter, which Sixth Ranger Hana, who has to accept her powers in order to become the next High Queen, doesn't take too well.
- Image Song: They each get one or more.
- Leitmotif: Just like with the Image Song, they get at least one.
- Little Miss Badasses: A group of Badass Adorable little girls with magical powers.
- Mama Bear: The first five girls towards Hana.
- Nice Girls: All of them, despite their faults, are kind, caring, and gentle (the only exception is Onpu in the first season). This is evidenced by their using their powers to help others and showing compassion.
- Only Child Syndrome: Doremi and Pop are the only Ojamajos with siblings. Aiko was supposed to have a younger sibling until her mother had a miscarriage.
- Plucky Girls: They have shown their determination when protecting Hana and when doing the right thing, and they remain in the belief that things will always have a good end.
- Three Plus Two: At first it was just a Power Trio formed by Doremi, Hazuki and Aiko. Later they are joined by Onpu and Momoko. Hana is special and doesn't need to participate in Magical Stage. Pop was more or less considered part of the five in the first series and Sharp since she kind of was in-and-out, but by Motto! was replaced by Momoko.
- Town Girls: Femme - Hazuki and Onpu. Neither - Doremi and Momoko. Butch - Aiko.
- True Companions: These girls may only have been friends for a varying number of years, but they are very dedicated to one another and they will stand together no matter the hardships.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: All of them do this on occasion, typically changing into various small animals.

Voiced by: Chiemi Chiba (Japanese), Amy Palant (English), Vanessa Garcel (Latin-American Spanish), Blanca Rada (European Spanish)
Doremi Harukaze is the titular girl and main protagonist of the series. She has a good nature, but she is clumsy and chronically unlucky. Her good nature has drawn many True Companions to her over the course of the series.She became an apprentice when she called Majo Rika a "Witch", inadvertently triggering an age-old curse that turns Witches in Witch Frogs when they're uncovered. To undo the curse, Doremi has to become stronger and become a full-fledged Witch. Along the way, she uses her new found magic to help other people through their problems, but she has to keep it a secret.
- Affectionate Nickname: Dojimi. Given to her by Kotake as a pun on her name and her clumsiness.
- All Girls Want Bad Boys: Had a crush on Akatsuki during Sharp. She still does.
- Amusing Injuries: Suffers these while trying to wake Pop up during the first series, though she also gets them at other points too.

- Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Kotake.
- Book Dumb: She has been known to get bad grades and frequently fails tests.
- Born Unlucky: Which leads to her Catch Phrase.
- Butt Monkey: She is chronically unlucky, gets hit hard every now and then, and overall just seems to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. This is lessened by Dokkan.
- Catchphrase: "I'm the unluckiest pretty girl in the world!"
- Cool Loser: This Loser Is You, but it takes the span of the whole series for Doremi to realize she has more True Companions than she thinks. Also, she gets along with all of her classmates, gets to take care of a cute baby, and gets to do magic... as pointed out by Mirei (of the fan site Candy Flower fame), what does she actually consider being lucky?
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: She may be a Cute Clumsy Nice Girl on the outside, but do NOT do anything to threaten Hana or make her angry.
- Cute Clumsy Girl: She's practically the poster girl!
- Embarrassing Nickname: Dojimi. Doubles as an Affectionate Nickname.

- Fiery Redhead: Passionate, emotional Genki Girl and often quick to anger.
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The foolish to Pop's responsible.
- Genki Girl: Doremi is really full of energy.
- Hair Decorations: A music note in one of her odango, further emphasizing her Meaningful Name.
- The Heart
- Heroic BSOD: Doremi goes through one during the Dokkan series finale. Also occurs when Non-chan dies in Naisho.
- The Heroine
- Idiot Hero: Even though she matures greatly over the series, she is still The Ditz, a Cute Clumsy Girl, and Book Dumb.
- Image Song: "Otome wa Kyuu ni Tomarenai!!", "Kitto Chanto Onnanoko", "Ice Cream Child", "'Su' no Tsuku Koibito", and "Merry-Go-Round."
- Important Haircut: The beginning narration for Ojamajo Doremi 16 indicates Doremi has gotten a haircut to deal with Kotake rejecting her feelings.
- Inept Mage: Particularly during S1, when many of her spells simply work differently than what she was expecting. These include turning into a police cruiser when she tried turning into a cop, ending up in a butterfly costume when she tried turning into a butterfly, and conjuring a large steak instead of the required dish when taking the level 9 exam.
- Iron Butt Monkey: Count the number of times she gets physically struck for Amusing Injuries. Make a Drinking Game out of it. You won't stay sober for long...
- Jumped at the Call: She was all too eager to become a Witch after she was told she had to become one after inadvertently turning Majo Rika into a Witch Frog.
- Large Ham
- Leitmotif: "Pretty Witch Doremicchi" plays a lot during the first series when she's determined to carry out her plans.
- Let's Get Dangerous: Any time you push her Berserk Buttons (i.e threaten Hana, betray her, steal her steak), be prepared for a world of hurt...
- Loser Protagonist: Clumsy, unlucky, Book Dumb and the most incompetent of the apprentices. She's the main character.
- Lost Food Grievance: Anytime she loses her steak, she might get mad. Do NOT steal her steak. You have been warned.
- Meaningful Name: Her first name is the first three notes of the musical scale.
- Made of Iron: She crashed headfirst into Majo Reed's home and made a real mess and was none the worse for wear. Hazuki even lampshades it.
- The Millstone: Sometimes due to her clumsiness and ditziness, she ends up hindering everyone's efforts and taking a step or two back. Lampshaded on occasion.
- Naďve Everygirl: Doremi does get more mature as the series progress, but she's essentially the everygirl.
- Odango Hair: Huge ones at that, though they shrunk somewhat after Sharp.
- Official Couple: Although Doremi and Kotake start out having tons of Belligerent Sexual Tension with occasional moments of Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other, it turns out that Doremi gave a Love Confession to Kotake when they were in 8th grade. This quickly turned into Unresolved Sexual Tension until two years later, Kotake finally replies to her.
- Pink Means Feminine: Her theme color is pink and she is quite feminine. At least, more so than Aiko.
- The Power of Friendship
- Puppy Love: With Kotake. Both happen to be a very young 8-12 when they develop feelings for each other, though they don't exactly know how to really act on them yet.
- Rapunzel Hair: Easily has the longest hair of all the Ojamajos in that it stretches down to slightly below her waist.
- Red-Headed Heroine: She is the main hero of the story and she has red hair.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red to Hazuki's Blue. She's even Color-Coded for Your Convenience in this case!
- Sibling Yin-Yang: With Pop. She is immature and self-centered (at first...) while Pop is Wise Beyond Their Years.
- Slipknot Ponytail: Different hairstyle, but same idea. Her Odangos come loose when her crystal shatters near the end of Sharp.
- Terrible Artist: This often occurs in the first season, where no one can hardly tell what Doremi's charms are supposed to resemble. In season 3, Doremi's sweets are the last to sell out in one episode. By season 4, this becomes less of an issue because Doremi's Butt Monkey status was played down to show Hana's inexperience in having "big kid responsibilities."
- Trademark Favorite Food: She's crazy about steak, but too bad she rarely ever gets any.
- Verbal Tic: "Bu-bu-buu!", which is said whenever she is frustrated or annoyed by something. It's mimicked by her "daughter", Hana.
- Yank the Dog's Chain: Whenever she's about to eat some steak, either someone else will eat it or the steak disappears into thin air if magic was used to make it.

Voiced by: Tomoko Akiya (Japanese), Rebecca Handler (English), Mayra Arellano (Latin-American Spanish), Carolina Tak (European Spanish)
"Paipai ponpoi puwapuwa puu!"Hazuki is Doremi's best friend at the start of the series and is usually considered the second Witch Apprentice. She is a shy but very kind-hearted girl who would help virtually anyone.She became an apprentice along with new girl Aiko when they follow Doremi to the shop after one of Doremi's spells backfired. She and Aiko both called Doremi a Witch, but Doremi wasn't cursed because she wasn't a full-fledged Witch yet. Majo Rika made her into an apprentice to help keep the secret.
- Adjusting Your Glasses: Does this on occasion.
- All Girls Want Bad Boys: She is drawn to Masaru despite his juvenile delinquent tendencies, and has found out he is more Troubled, but Cute.
- Amusing Injuries: Suffers these while trying to wake Pop up during the first series.
- Balloon Belly: In an episode of Dokkan, Hazuki is forced to pretend she is Hana during a school trip due to Hana turning back to her original form and also has to eat her dinner alongside her own.
- Brainy Brunette: Consistently gets the highest grades out of the girls and is a brunette.
- Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: Gentle Girl to Masaru's Brooding Boy.

- Image Song: "Tsukiyo no Mahou", "Ashita no Watashi", "Mimi wo Sumashite", "Naisho no Housoku", and "OK!"
- Leitmotif: The upbeat version of "Pretty Witch Hazukicchi" tends to play whenever Hazuki is inspired.

- Meganekko: A smart, cute girl who wears glasses.

- Out of Focus: Especially later in the series, she and Aiko (to a lesser extent) are mostly ignored in favor of the other main characters. They also tend to not always be drawn as well.

- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Doremi's Red. She's the more calm of the two while Doremi is the more active and hotblooded.
- Scary Shiny Glasses: Usually when she's scared (or teasing Doremi), because she's not a particularly frightening character.
- Ship Tease: She gets plenty of this with Masaru Yada to the extent that her friends act as Shippers On Deck regarding their "friendship", and they do eventually become an Official Couple in the Light Novel. The ship teasing could also constitute for some of the Les Yay shipping as well.
- Shrinking Violet: She's painfully shy and has low self-esteem, especially in the beginning.
- The Smart Girl: She gets excellent grades in school and has figured things out before everyone else, including Onpu, most of the time.
- Spell My Name with an "S": The subs call her Hadzuki. This is probably to emphasize that her name is spelled with the kana for "tsu." With the dakuten, it's pronounced "zu" anyway, but that spelling indicates how her name is written.
- Spoiled Sweet: Hazuki comes from a rich family, but is still the nicest of the girls, and perceptive of people around her.
- Survival Mantra: Aiko gave her the idea to say "Majo Rika" over and over to help counteract her fear of ghosts. It seldom works.

- Yamato Nadeshiko
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: She is deathly afraid of ghosts to the point that she nearly went insane in one drama CD.
Aiko Senoo (Mirabelle P. Haywood)
Voiced by: Yuki Matsuoka (Japanese), Annice Moriarity (English), Ana Lucia Mendez (Latin-American Spanish), Diana Torres (European Spanish)
"Pameruku laluku laliloli poppun!"Aiko is Doremi's second best friend who moved in from Osaka. She upstaged a lot of students and quickly got on Doremi's bad side at first, but her going to Aiko's house and seeing Aiko's father sparked a change of heart. When it became clear that Aiko's dad wouldn't make it to a parent-teacher meeting, Doremi used her magic to make a temporary clone, unaware that the real one made it after all.Aiko became an apprentice when she and Hazuki followed Doremi to the shop after Doremi's spell backfired. There, she and Hazuki learned that Doremi was a Witch Apprentice and that they, in order to keep the secret, would have to become Apprentices, too.
- Amusing Injuries: Suffers these while trying to wake Pop up during the first series.
- Balloon Belly: In an episode of Dokkan, Aiko is forced to pretend she is Doremi due to Hana turning back into her original form and also has to eat Doremi's dinner along with hers.
- The Big Girl: She is the most athletic of the girls and physically the strongest despite not being the tallest of them.
- Book Dumb: Not as much as Doremi, but she's not the best student since she sometimes has to rely on Hazuki to help get her school work done.
- Boyish Short Hair: Fitting, since she's a tomboy.
- Brutal Honesty: Causes a bit of problems with Hazuki and Doremi at first.
- Daddy's Girl: She lives only with her Bumbling Dad, and while she's somewhat snarky towards him, they are still close.
- Deadpan Snarker: Has her moments, especially towards Doremi.
- Dub Name Change: Sophie in the Latinamerican dub
- Edible Ammunition: Launches several Takoyaki balls at Leon. He blocks it and begins chowing down while mocking her.
- Forehead of Doom: Aiko's character design as of Motto! accentuates her forehead and becomes one of her defined physical traits. The Ending Theme of Na-i-sho highlights this, and there are some scenes in the show where her forehead will flash just for laughs.
- Genre Savvy: She figured that something was fishy during one of the tests during Season 1 and gave falsified information to make the test easier for herself and her friends. This becomes subverted during later seasons, though.
- Iconic Outfit: Aiko wears a blue jumper skirt, with her hair tied in small Twin Tails, whenever she visits her mom. It's a very memorable because it's a definitive She Cleans Up Nicely moment and has a more "feminine" appearance than her usual overalls/jeans.
- The Idiot from Osaka: Okay, not really an idiot, but still.
- Idiot Hair: Again, not really an idiot, but she has it.
- Image Song: "Aiko ni Omakase!!", "Pa tto Ikou!!", "Aruki da Sou yo", and "Yuugure Buranko", "Ao no Kanata he". The English dub gives her another, titled "Mirabelle's Song."

- Out of Focus: Later in the series, she (along with Hazuki) is mostly ignored in favor of the other main characters.
- Paper Fan of Doom: Wielded one during Motto once. Provides the page picture.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Onpu's Blue, made prominent in episode 34 of Sharp.
- Ship Tease: Usually with Momoko or Onpu. The former pairing being evident in the Motto movie while the latter is prevalent after she let's Hana get sick.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Aiko's last name is romanized differently on a bunch of official merchandise. Sharp merchandise lists it as "Senoo", Motto merchandise lists it as "Seno", and Dokkan merchandise lists it as "Senoh."
- Super Drowning Skills: Aiko is very athletic and good at sports (particularly track, which she pursues in 16) but cannot swim. In Na-i-sho, she learns how to swim thanks to Hazuki, but even then she doesn't have much confidence in swimming.
- Tomboy: She has displayed in interest in sports that most boys in school prefer and she is very much an athlete.
- Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Aiko is a full-blown tomboy but, like her friends, she doesn't mind girly things, either.

Pop Harukaze (Caitlyn Goodwyn)
Voiced by: Sawa Ishige (Japanese), Liza Jacqueline (English), Pepa Agudo (European Spanish)
"Pipito purito puriton peperuto!"Pop is Doremi's younger sister and tends to be rather snarky about Doremi's tendencies. She secretly admires her, but she is more responsible and more serious than Doremi. She has several friends at the Kindergarten.She became an Apprentice when Majo Rika, out of desperation to get away from her to help the Ojamajos against Majo Ruka, stopped pretending to be a plush doll and fled. Pop followed her to the shop and confronted the girls on what was happening. Majo Rika made her an apprentice so as to, once again, keep the secret. She proves herself to be more capable a Witch than Doremi, but her inability to stay up late locks her at the bottom level until Sharp.
- The Ace: Pop is the top student in her class, and is also a very good witch apprentice.
- Adorably Precocious Child: Pop may be the younger sister, but she has a reputation of being more mature than Doremi.
- Always Someone Better: Pop may seem like the better role model, and is given more favor over Doremi. On the other hand, she secretly envies Doremi and feels that their parents love her more, as their mother taught Doremi how to play the piano when Pop wasn't given a chance to.
- Annoying Younger Sibling: Pop irritates Doremi to no end because of her obnoxious attitude, but since the # movie, they were able to resolve their differences.
- Ascended Extra: Became a witch and gained a larger role during Sharp (to the point of receiving her own Image Song, even!), only to be Demoted to Extra once Momoko appears. The official page lists her on the same page of Doremi's family members while the rest of the Ojamajos each get their own pages.
- Blush Sticker: The biggest example in her case is during one episode of Naisho when Hana-chan causes a "Freaky Friday" Flip between the two.
- Bratty Half-Pint: Initially, she was arrogant and liked to tease Doremi. Then comes the Character Development...
- Can't Catch Up: She's considered a witch prodigy, but she doesn't start taking her tests until #, and finally gets her crystal in the penultimate episode of Dokkan.
- Child Prodigy: It's a pity she rarely spends time on casting magic.
- Dub Name Change: Bibi in the Latinamerican dub.
- "Freaky Friday" Flip: Happens to her during an episode of Naisho, when Hana uses her magic to switch bodies with her.
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The responsible to Doremi's foolish.
- The Heart: Among her schoolmates, she is the one who usually keeps things together and from getting too chaotic.
- Heavy Sleeper: This is the reason why Pop barely made any progress for her witch exams. It's not because she's incompetent at magic (she's better than Doremi, even!) but the thing is, nighttime is the only time the portal to the Witch World opens, and she can never wake up for that. And whenever Doremi and the others tried to wake her up for the exams...
- Image Song: Only gets one: "Hop Step Pop." The song "Pop na Yuuki" might also count if you ignore the fact that it was sung by a vocalist other than Pop's voice actress and was only used as the ending theme to the first Non-Serial Movie.
- Leitmotif: The marching tune in "Sekai Ichi Fuko na Bishoujo!?" usually plays during Pop's appearances and is noted as Pop's theme song.
- Little Miss Snarker: Especially in the earlier series, but she has been known to reply with sarcasm and witty one-liners when Doremi makes a statement.
- Love Confession: Receives one from Kimitaka before he moves away to Hokkaido.
- Mouthy Kid
- Oblivious Younger Sibling: For the first half of the first series. Subverted after she joins the Ojamajos in regards to both magic and her relationship with Doremi.
- Rose-Haired Sweetie: She has pink hair, and ultimately a good-natured girl.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: With Doremi. She is Wise Beyond Their Years while Doremi is immature and self-centered (at first...).
- Spell My Name with an "S": Pop's name is romanized as "Poppu", but official merchandising and Pop's nameplate in episode 27 of the first season spells her name as "Pop." The early English-speaking Ojamajo Doremi fan community called her "Poppu" until the official romanization became more popular.
- Tagalong Kid: She zigzags this. She joined the Ojamajos in the middle of Season 1, but she wasn't present nearly as often as the others and was just sort of in and out. She managed to make the girls and all-female Five-Man Band in Sharp, but was replaced by Momoko come Motto. Dokkan sealed it when Hana joined the Ojamajos as The Sixth Ranger.
- Team Mom: To her classmates. She's quick to stop any bullying she sees.
- Wise Beyond Their Years: She has proven herself to have a much higher degree of responsibility when compared to others kids her age. This is mentioned In-Universe, and one of the reasons she is The Heart of her class.
Onpu Segawa (Ellie Craft)
Voiced by: Rumi Shishido (Japanese), Jessica Calvello (English, season 1), Gaby Ugarte (Latin-American Spanish), Carmen Podio (European Spanish)
"Pururun purun famifami faa!"Onpu is a wildly popular child idol and a prodigy Witch apprentice. She initially appears as nice and friendly, but she quickly identifies herself as their rival soon after. She causes trouble for the girls, either deliberately or as collateral damage from wanting to get away from her own troubles.She became an Apprentice when she caught and called Majo Ruka a Witch, resulting in her being cursed. After hearing about Doremi, Hazuki, and Aiko from Majo Ruka, Onpu becomes resolved to outclass them. She was even given a charm that would let her withstand the punishment from using forbidden magic, and she abused it a lot over the series. As the series went on, she takes levels in kindness with occasional Pet the Dog moments before cementing a Heel–Face Turn by saving the other Ojamajos from being cursed, officially joining the group come Sharp.
- The Ace: Onpu's magic casting abilities are generally better than the rest of the girls, and she's the only one who learned the writing system of the Witch World.
- All Girls Want Bad Boys: Onpu's daydream in Naisho episode 10 depicts her ideal man as a bad boy.
- Ambiguous Disorder: Episode 4 of Naisho is titled "Non-Standard" for a reason; it's a symbolism-heavy character study of Onpu where she displays signs of mild psychological dissociation (disinterest, fatigue, and frequent moments of disconnect from reality to the point she can only summon her Pollon but not her apprentice outfit) while trying to figure out an emotional rut with her career.
- Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Her head and hairstyle resembles a musical note.
- Blow You Away: Uses her Royal Patraine magic to conjure a whirlwind against Tooru. It doesn't work.
- Child Popstar: Onpu is one of the most famous chidols (child idols) of the now.
- Child Prodigy: Onpu was able to reach level 6 by passing the first three tests in one sitting, earning her the reputation of being a prodigy in the Witch World.
- Curtains Match the Window: She has purple hair and eyes.
- Dark Magical Girl: Before her Heel–Face Turn, she was selfish and used magic to solve all of her problems. She was also not above using forbidden magic on trivialities like avoiding green peppers and outright says she would most likely use more forbidden magic to solve an issue some previous forbidden magic caused.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: She started off as a cold person who put on a pleasant facade to conceal her more selfish mannerisms in addition to using forbidden magic for her own personal gain. As she grew to know Doremi, Hazuki, and Aiko, she started opening up and using magic to help others, even if it would keep her from realizing her own goals. This culminates in her outright saving the girls at the cost of her finally getting hit with Laser-Guided Karma.
- Demonic Possession: A demon possessing her played this for laughs and did so solely to play a prank on Doremi and Momoko.
- Disappeared Dad: He is seldom home since his job as a train conductor requires an extensive amount of his time and keeps him from visiting as often as he would want.
- Does Not Like Spam: Onpu cannot stand green bell peppers. She later resists her inability in order to convince Hana to eat one of the recipes the girls made for her involving vegetables.
- Dub Name Change: Nicole in the Latinamerican dub.
- Dude Magnet: Onpu is, without a doubt, extremely popular with the male persuasion. On her first day of school, the boys swooned in her presence, and she even has her own fan club at school.
- Evil Diva: Before her Heel–Face Turn, although she was more 'misled' than 'evil'.
- Evil Counterpart: To Doremi, Hazuki, and Aiko pre-Heel–Face Turn; it's more downplayed since she isn't "evil", per se.
- Like Doremi, Onpu's name was music-based. However, she was the Dark Magical Girl at the time, so being a counterpart to her was to be expected.
- Like Hazuki, Onpu was also smart. However, she was also very cunning and used said smarts to get her way rather than help others (most of the time).
- Like Aiko, Onpu had a lot of common sense and was pretty Genre Savvy herself.
- Fire-Forged Friends: With the first three Ojamajos. She started off as a stand-offish, self-centered Jerkass who used magic for her own personal gain. Then during the final exam, she had to work with her rivals without cheating. It was only because of her that they passed in time. After being saved from a 100-year slumber , Onpu became one of their closest friends.
- Former Child Star: Lapses into this in Ojamajo Doremi 16, where she has trouble getting more mature roles because she's unable to break out of her child image.
- Girlish Pigtails: Just one, but still.
- Graceful Ladies Like Purple
- Gratuitous English: We can do anything if we do it together~
- Heel–Face Turn: She was first Majo Ruka's apprentice, and switched sides by Sharp.
- Heroic Sacrifice: She saves the girls by using Mind Control to apply Laser-Guided Amnesia to a group of people (every student from their class and several of their parents). This gives karma a chance to catch up and put her in a coma.
- Iconic Outfit: Even though Onpu's devil outfit has appeared on a trading card, it became wildly popular among fans. It was released as a figurine, and there's a lot of fanart of Devil Onpu.
- Idol Singer
- It's All About Me: Pre-Character Development, Onpu was a downright selfish Jerkass who really only cared for herself. She even makes a note of it during the Grand Finale when helping to snap Doremi out of her Heroic BSOD.
- Image Song: "half point", "We Can Do!", "Polar Star", "Cherry Bomb!!".
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Does this to all of the Muggles when they find out that the girls are witches.
- Laser-Guided Karma: She (ab)used Mind Control magic throughout the later half of the first series after her introduction before finally getting hit with this just as she was using it at a time when it was needed to stop a potential Baleful Polymorph.
- Onpu managed to to get away with abusing her magic thanks a magical amulet she wore that took the karma in itself, given to her by Majo Ruka. Majo Rika warned them that this was only a temporary "solution", and that shit would hit the fan as soon as the trinket wasn't able to absorb more bad karma; surely, when Onpu used a LARGE quantity of magic to save the other girls and herself via giving Laser-Guided Amnesia to many people, the amulet broke and the Laser-Guided Karma hit Onpu hard, sending her into a coma.
- Leitmotif: "Pretty Witch Onpucchi"
- Meaningful Name: Onpu means "musical note".
- Mind-Control Eyes: She displays glazed-over eyes while possessed by a demon in one episode of Motto.
- New Transfer Student
- Nonstandard Character Design: She's the first character not to have pupils. Every character from Onpu on, for some reason, does not have pupils.
- One of the Boys: In the first season, Onpu became even more endearing to the boys in the class when she shows them she knows a lot about trains, something that's common for boys and generally considered geeky.
- Only Sane Woman: The most calm and level-headed of the girls, though Hazuki is a close second.
- Purple Is Powerful: She was, for a while, the most capable Apprentice and her theme color is purple. She remains skilled at magic in the later seasons.
- Purple Is the New Black: Onpu first appears as a Dark Magical Girl, with "purple" being a child-friendly version of black.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni to Aiko's Red, made prominent in episode 34 of Sharp.
- Refusal of the Call: In Ojamajo Doremi 16, Onpu is the only girl besides Pop to refuse becoming a witch apprentice because she's afraid she'll be tempted to use forbidden magic to cure her mother's cancer.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Onpu's name was romanized as "Ompoo" on a design sketch in Sharp and as "Ompu" on a design sketch in Motto.
- Stepford Smiler: Type A.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: The girly girl to Momoko's tomboy.
- Took a Level in Kindness: After her Heel–Face Turn, Onpu went from a spoiled, cold, enigmatic, and self-cententered Jerkass to a kind-hearted, sweet, and humble Nice Girl.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Loves cute, stereotypically feminine sweets like crepes and waffles to the point she's gotten into a light-hearted argument with Aiko about how she finds the image of takoyaki as particularly crude.
- Wise Beyond Their Years: She is known to give very good and rarely questioned advice and, during Season 1, she was the prodigy apprentice who skipped several tests through sheer skill alone.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is purple.

"Peruton petton palalila pon!"Momoko, introduced in Motto, is a Japanese-American girl who lived in New York City for most of her life. She moved to Japan when her father's work transferred him there, but she had a lot of trouble adapting due to the language barrier. The Ojamajos helped a great deal to overcome that, and she admitted that she would most certainly have hated Japan had it not been for them, particularly Doremi.She became an Apprentice when she discovered that the kind old woman, called Majo Monroe, who helped her when she first moved to America was in fact a Witch. She inadvertently cursed her and resolved to become a full-fledged Witch so as to one day turn her back. She succeeded, but Majo Monroe was already terminally ill and dying. Momoko received Majo Monroe's most prized possession before passing, but Momoko didn't want her to die. Momoko's attempt to bring back the deceased Majo Monroe shattered her Crystal, costing her her magic but sparing her from death had she succeeded. When she moved back to Japan, the Queen offered her the chance to once again become a Witch if she aided the Ojamajos with their own quest. She accepted, and she joined the group from there.
- Bare Your Midriff: Momoko's shirt is short enough so that it reveals her navel.
- Big Ol' Eyebrows: Bigger than everyone else's at least, and highlighted in the Naisho Ending Theme.
- Brutal Honesty: Causes a bit of problems with Hazuki and Onpu at first.
- But Not Too Foreign: Although Momoko is a New Transfer Student from New York, both her parents are Japanese.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Whenever she gets excited about something. Also, she's the only one who finds Toyoken funny. Interestingly, as the series goes on, Momoko continues to get more and more Flanderized when it comes to being this.
- Culture Clash: Momoko experiences a lot of these in the beginning of Motto.
- Deliberate Values Dissonance: Early on in Motto, Momoko unintentionally offends Hazuki and Onpu when she openly criticizes their lack of experience in cooking. Aiko later explains to her that it's not in Japanese culture to be very blunt and confrontational.
- Demonic Possession: Played for Drama. She was possessed by the Big Bad and used to bring Hana into the Cursed Forest so the Big Bad can kill her directly.
- Demoted to Extra: In Dokkan, she had little to no Character Development (mainly because Motto gave her enough of it) or memorable moments, almost to the point where you could easily erase her from the script without affecting the main storyline.
- Ditzy Genius: Momoko is very good at school and easily one of the top students in her class, but her Culture Clash with Japan usually leads to her moments as The Ditz.
- Dude Magnet: Implied to be this. Aside from the fact that all members of the FLAT4 were hitting on her during their first encounter, the reason why Reika Tamaki initially felt threatened by her is because the boys in their class find Momoko very attractive. In Ojamajo Doremi 16, Doremi even mentions that Momoko is very popular with the boys, and they were disappointed when she was unable to come to the class reunion.
- Flanderization: Momoko started out as a quiet but outspoken girl with occasional conflicts with the Japanese culture. As the series went on, these cultural conflicts are executed for humor, transforming her into a Funny Foreigner and Cloud Cuckoo Lander with a side of Ditzy Genius.
- Funny Foreigner: Justified in the fact that Momoko grew up in American culture, this trope is sometimes brought into light during Momoko's Cloud Cuckoo Lander moments. Of note, there's one episode where she starts spewing archaic Japanese and pretending to be a samurai while Kotake and Doremi are LARPing Battle Rangers... or when she thinks being Ninjas will help prevent Hana from becoming a witch frog.
- Genki Girl
- Good with Numbers: Momoko's surprisingly skilled at math, mostly because she handled accounting when working at Monroe's Magical Shop.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's a young, pretty, and nice Genki Girl.
- The Heart
- Image Song: "ARIGATO", "Nippon Daisuki!!", "Sekai wa Love and Peace", "Rainbow".
- Large Ham: In the Japanese version, she has a strong voice and gives over-the-top reactions to a lot of things, including ghosts.
- Leitmotif: "America Gaeri no Majominarai"
- Lotus-Eater Machine: Get's trapped in one near the end of Motto when the former queen possesses her.
- Manic Pixie Dream Girl: She was this a lot in Motto before Hana had a Plot-Relevant Age-Up.
- Mindcontrol Eyes: Like Onpu, she displays glazed-over eyes while possessed by the .
- New-Age Retro Hippie: She wears a hippie outfit whenever she sings "Sekai wa Love and Peace."
- New Transfer Student
- Nonstandard Character Design: Like Onpu, Momoko does not have pupils and her hair is less "bulby" and more "hairlike." Even Hazuki's hair (previously the most realistic) is usually shown more like a single, connected thing, but Momoko's hair looks more like it actually consists of individual strands.
- Phenotype Stereotype
- She's Got Legs: One of Momoko's noted charm points by the boys of class 5-1.
- Ship Tease: A lot with most of the main cast. She's posed as Onpu's husband and Aiko's boyfriend before.
- Sixth Ranger: She joins the group come Motto while there was five already. She ultimately replaces Pop in the group.
- Surprisingly Good English: She lived in America for most of her life, so she had to relearn Japanese.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: The tomboy to Onpu's girly girl.
- Translator Microbes: Uses these early on in Motto. They translate English to Japanese and vice-versa perfectly, but she only uses them because she cannot speak Japanese very well.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: She picks up on Hazuki's fear of ghosts when she joins the class on the courage test. She is almost as afraid of them as Hazuki is.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Grade E, in her normal outfit. Not that she really needs it any higher...
Voiced by: Ikue Otani (Japanese), Marta Sáinz (European Spanish)
"Pororin pyurarin hanahana pi!"Hana, introduced in Sharp, is a baby born from the Blue Rose in the Witch Queen's garden. As Doremi, Hazuki, Aiko, and Onpu were the first ones to see her, they had to take care of her and raise her. She starts off as The Load since she is incapable of truly acting for herself as a newborn and she tended to get sick at the drop of a hat. This became an Escort Mission when the Wizards got involved, who wanted to exploit her powerful magic to save their race from extinction.Hana's powerful magic also attracted the ire of the Witch Queen from two reigns ago, who tried to kill her towards the end of Sharp and continued to impede her throughout Motto before trying to kill her again.She became an Apprentice when she, having grown bored of the Witch World, aged herself up to go be with her "Mamas"; this act shattered her pendent and locked her out of becoming next in line to be the Queen. As an apprentice, she didn't take keeping the secret as seriously as everyone else and used magic to cause mischief every now and then. In any case, she proved herself to have a good heart in that she does things with the best of intentions.
- Bare Your Midriff: During Dokkan episode 24, Hana dons a costume modeled after Commander White from the BattleRangers.
- Batman Gambit: At the end of the series, she threatens to reveal her magic to everyone in a last ditch effort to snap Doremi out of her Heroic BSOD.
- Blush Sticker: Almost always has these during Sharp and Motto. She retains them most of the time during Dokkaan. She has these so often that they're practically her trademark.
- Bratty Half-Pint: Is usually this when she doesn't get her way.
- Catchphrase: When greeting people, "Chi~tsu!" ("Cheese" is her way of saying "Hello")
- This has been used by some of the others on occasion.
- Child Prodigy: Was able to ace 1st-5th grade work in only a few weeks after her Plot-Relevant Age-Up.
- Cute Clumsy Girl
- The Cutie
- Does Not Like Spam: In her early years, Hana had an aversion to carrots. Her mothers remedied this by using carrot cake. The former queen later cast a curse that took this Up to Eleven by making her hate all vegetables, but it was broken later.
- Dude Magnet: Even all of the FLAT4 were hitting on her!
- Everyone Loves Blondes: Everyone finds Hana adorable.
- "Freaky Friday" Flip: Pulls this in one episode of Naisho with Pop.
- Genki Girl: She is very hyperactive and spends most of her time being happy-go-lucky. She has been compared to other genki girls, including Pinkie Pie.
- Girlish Pigtails: Ever since she was born, she has had her hair up in at least one pigtail. Doremi alters her hairstyle to having two of them to help her out.
- The Glomp: She tackles Doremi to the ground in a hug in her first post age-up appearance.
- Hair Decorations: The crystals on her scrunchies in Sharp and Motto, which are replaced with wing hairclips in Dokkan when they shatter.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Hana is innocent, cute, naive and everyone seems to love her.
- Has Two Mommies: Hana exaggerates this by having several in the form of the Ojamajos. Justified since Hana, like all Witches, was born from a rose and that the rules of Majo Kai force the girls to adopt her during Sharp.
- Honorifics: Tends to refer to herself as "Hana-chan". This gets mocked by Tamaki.
- Image Song: "Watashi wa Ojamajo Hana-chan!!", "Daisuki na Ehon to Mama no Uta", "Damon ne! Hana-chan!!", "Thank You Mommies".
- The Ingenue
- Innocent Prodigy: She is young and naive, but she was shown being able to skip tests in her apprenticeship AND breeze through school grades in weeks.
- I Choose to Stay: Out of all of the girls, Hana is the only one who chooses to embrace being a Witch. Justified since she is next in line to be The High Queen.
- Kid-Appeal Character: Her childlike nature as opposed to the more serious other girls makes her this. She even represents her own toy line while Doremi is used to represent the rest of the girls.
- Kiddie Kid
- Late-Arrival Spoiler: See that white witch apprentice? Remember that baby Doremi and the girls were supposed to take care of in the previous seasons? Yes, those two are the same person. Chances are you will run into this revelation as soon as you hear of the series. Toei doesn't help it either — before Dokkan debuted, they teased viewers with a silhouette of a sixth (seventh if you count Pop) member on the team, but now all of their recent promotional material from Ojamajo Doremi mentions 11-year-old Hana, not baby Hana.
- Leitmotif: "Hana-chan no Mahou" and "Hana-chan wa Akachan no Mahou", the latter of which is used more as her Leitmotif.
- The Load: When Hana was still a baby, she mostly contributed little to the group. This is subverted once during Sharp when she contributed magic to a Magical Stage involving Onpu, Aiko, and Pop that was beginning to fail.
- Manic Pixie Dream Girl: She is eccentric, very hyperactive, and very happy-go-lucky as far as attitude goes.
- Magical Girl Queenliness Test: She had to go through this in addition to the exams all other Witch Apprentices had to go through in order to regain her right as heir to the Witch World's throne.
- Mega Twintails: Her 11-year-old self styles her hair in these, and they are easily several inches in diameter AND stretch to her knees.
- Naďve Everygirl: She is still very young and wants everyone to be happy. Being the Kid-Appeal Character certainly helps her be this trope.
- Picky Eater: In Motto after the Big Bad cursed her to hate vegetables in an effort to stunt her growth as a Witch.
- Plot-Relevant Age-Up: She went from 2 to 11 in Dokkan's first episode. Hilarity Ensues when the spell backfires...
- Power Incontinence: Since Hana is a full-blooded witch, her powers are stronger than the rest of the witch apprentices. When she was a baby, she had difficulty controlling her powers, which was often activated by her emotions. In Dokkan she is asked to undergo witch apprentice training in order how to learn to control them.
- Rapunzel Hair: Her long pigtails post-Plot-Relevant Age-Up stretch all the way to her knees.
- Short Tank: She dresses like one in her 11-year-old self.
- Sixth Ranger: She joins the group once Dokkan comes around. What cements her as this instead of replacing another character in the Five-Man Band is that her magic is much more powerful than theirs is and she almost never joins in Magical Stage where as Doremi, Hazuki, Aiko, Onpu, and Momoko are the ones who pull it off in Dokkan.
- Special Snowflake Syndrome: Being a full-blooded Witch, she has access to things that the other Ojamajos will never get. Most notably, she has her own unique uniform and Transformation Sequence, recharges her magic differently than the others, and she is set to become the next Queen of the Witch World in the future.
- Third-Person Person: She frequently speaks in the third person, even going so far as to call herself "Hana-chan". This gets her mocked by Reika Tamaki when she first enters the class.
- Took a Level in Jerkass: During Ojamajo Doremi 16, Hana had begun showing signs of a rebellious streak. Eventually, she decided to take advantage of Majo Kai no Jou-sama's love for her and get Majo Rika punished for giving her a punishment that she mostly deserved. You know she's done this when her mothers would consider corporeal punishment after pulling all this crap. Everyone was spoiling and being too lenient with her during Dokkan, which more than guarantees that Hana would pull this, thus both justifying the level in jerkass and deconstructing her super sheltered upbringing.
- Trademark Favorite Food: She shares Pop's love of pudding.
- Unskilled, but Strong: Her magic is powerful, but she hasn't had the time or training the Queen and Majo Tourbillon have had.
- Walking Spoiler: Hana's appearance in Dokkan counts as this. One look at her, and you'll know she aged herself and is now a regular member on the team.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: Hana's shorts post-Plot-Relevant Age-Up don't even cover her thighs.
- Younger than She Looks: In Dokkan. Subverted on nights of the New Moon.
- Verbal Tic: "Bu-bu-buu!" Like "mother", like "daughter".
Family and Relatives
Keisuke and Haruka Harukaze
Voiced by: Yuuta Mochizuki (Keisuke, Japanese), Yuka Saito (Haruka, Japanese), Dan Green (Keisuke, English), Bella Hudson (Haruka, English), Rafael Rivera (Keisuke, Latin-American Spanish), Dulce Maria Romay (Haruka, Latin-American Spanish), Francisco Andrés Valdivia (Keisuke, European Spanish), Rocío Azofra (European Spanish)Doremi and Pop's middle-class parents. Keisuke likes fly-fishing to the point where it gets on his wife's nerves. Haruka is an ex-Elegant Classical Musician who wishes for what's best for the family.
- Career-Ending Injury: Haruka suffered severe damage to her hand. This caused her to stop from being an Elegant Classical Musician.
- Closer to Earth: Keisuke is kinda flighty when at home, so Haruka keeps him grounded. And that makes her a little grouchy, sometimes.
- Good Parents: For all their flaws, they genuinely love their two girls and do their best to help them.
- Stage Mom: Haruka toed the line briefly in the past, as she used to be an Elegant Classical Musician who lost her career due to an injury and tried to push little Doremi into a musical career. As little!Doremi had an Heroic BSOD in her first recital, Haruka realized that this could be dangerous and backed off; when Popp wanted to take up music as well, it took her quite a bit of effort to have Haruka approve of it.
- Running Gag: Keisuke wants to go fishing. Haruka catches him in the act and stops him. Lather, rinse, repeat.
- Tsundere: Haruka seems to be a Type B. Very sweet and gentle, until she catches Keisuke trying to sneak away to go fishing...
Akira and Reiko Fujiwara
Voiced by: Kenji Nomura (Akira, Japanese), Yui Maeda (Reiko, Japanese), Tom Wayland (Akira, English), Kerry Williams (Reiko, English), Marcos Patiño (Akira, Latin-American Spanish), Mayra Arellano (Reiko, Latin-American Spanish)Hazuki's parents. Akira is a film director, Reiko is a fashion designer; since both of them are very well-known, the Fujiwara family is very well-off, but have trouble in their relationship with their little girl.
- Adorkable: Akira, when he first met Reiko.
- Generation Xerox: Surprisingly justified! Reiko's mother tended to make decisions for her, much to her frustration. However, when her mother directly exposed a promising young man as a plagiarist and indirectly as a Jerkass Gold Digger. It's no wonder she thinks she's doing Hazuki a favor by making her decisions for her, but it was thankfully subverted later on when she realized her mistakes.
- Meal Ticket: Barely averted with Reiko. If it hadn't been for her own mother being a good judge of character, then she would have been taken advantage of, especially since the Gold Digger turned out to be a huge Faux Affable Jerkass.
- One of the Kids: Reiko. She has to rely on Baaya to do things around the mansion and is generally a bit less mature than a woman her age.
- Parents as People: Both of them are good people and they dearly love Hazuki, but Akira is very much a Workaholic and the kinda child-like Reiko sometimes seems to treat Hazuki more as a cute doll or a pet than as a daughter.
Koyuki "Baaya" Ishikawa
Voiced by: Yuko Saito (Japanese), Guadalupe Noel (Latin-American Spanish)The Fujiwara family's housekeeper and nanny to Hazuki.
- Crack! Oh My Back!: Justified for a time during series 1 due to a Bad Luck Charm.
- Miniature Senior Citizens: She is about Hazuki's height, if not shorter.
- Old Retainer: She worked for Reiko's birth family, and when Reiko married Akira she came to work for her new one. As such, she has been around from before Hazuki was born.
- Put on a Bus: During Ojamajo Doremi 16/17, high debts caused Akira's studio to be shut down, causing the family to lose their home and Baaya to separate from them.
- Star-Crossed Lovers: In Na-i-sho, we find out that Baaya had a boyfriend and loved him very much. Since they lived in Imperial Japan, he left to enlist in the army and never came back home. Hazuki finds out that he actually died on duty.
- Parental Substitute: For both Reiko and Hazuki
Kouji Senoo and Atsuko Okamura
Voiced by: Kyousei Tsukui (Kouji, Japanese), Sean Schemmel (Kouji, English), Tomoko Hiratsuji (Atsuko, Japanese), Rolando de Castro (Kouji, Latin-American Spanish), Pepe Carabias (Kouji, European Spanish)Aiko's parents, they're from Osaka. He's a taxi driver, she's a Hospital Hottie that works in a retirement home. When they got divorced, Aiko went to live with Kouji in Tokyo. They get back together, but much later.
- Arranged Marriage: In the first series, Kouji went to an omiai (arranged date) with Midori, the daughter of his boss. The girls tried to stop them, not because they disliked Midori but because Aiko didn't want/need a new mother — which was Kouji's reason to agree to the date...
- Divorce Is Temporary: Thanks to Aiko's actions and Kouji agreeing to help Atsuko take care of Aiko's Grandfather, this is played straight.
- Parents as People: They love Aiko, but it wasn't enough to save their marriage. Aiko is deeply marked by Atsuko leaving the family and then Kouji taking her to Tokyo from Osaka, and longs for them to get back together.
Tsuyoshi and Miho Segawa
Voiced by: Mari Adachi (Miho, Japanese)Onpu's parents. Miho is a former child star, and she's now Onpu's manager.
- Career-Ending Injury: While trying to go on stage, the young Miho tripped and fell all the way down te stairs. The massive injuries she sustained ended her career then and there.
- Disappeared Dad: Averted with Tsuyoshi. His job is very time consuming though.
- Parents as People - Stage Mom: Miho, who encourages Onpu to do what she wasn't able to when she was her age. Deconstructed later when Onpu uses forbidden magic to save everyone from being turned into magical frogs and falls into a coma; Miho suffers a severe Heroic BSOD as she believes Onpu collapsed due to all the pressure she put on her.
Kenzou and Minori Asuka
Voiced by: Hiroaki Hirata (Kenzou, Japanese), Fumiko Miyashita (Minori, Japanese), Diana Torres (Minori, European Spanish)Momoko's parents.
- Gratuitous English: Minori is...not quite as good at speaking English as Momoko.
Seki-sensei (Ms. Cooper)
Voiced by: Nanaho Katsuragi (Japanese), Kate Roland (English), Monica Manjarrez (Latin-American Spanish), Pepa Agudo (European Spanish)Doremi's stern homeroom teacher.
- Badass Teacher
- Biker Babe
- Christmas Cake: Doesn't come up that often, but she's clearly distressed when she mistakenly thinks her best friend Yuki has a boyfriend. Averted in the end as in Ojamajo Doremi 16 she got married to her boyfriend whom she dated since Motto.
- Deadpan Snarker
- Hot Teacher: She has nice lips, long silky hair, and a killer figure. How come a woman as beautiful as she is had trouble finding suitors at first?!
- Not So Above It All: As strict as she is, Seki-sensei does have a sense of humor such as laughing at Aiko's joke at the SOS Trio when they interrupted her introduction and snickered at Doremi and Tamaki's comedy act in Motto's student election assembly. She's not immune to petty jealousy either when she thinks Yuki-sensei is on a date.
Yuki-sensei (Ms. Shannon) aka The Queen of the Witch World
Voiced by: Yuka Imai (Japanese), Kayzie Rogers (English), Circe Luna (Latin-American Spanish), Diana Torres (European Spanish)The soft-spoken and beautiful school nurse, and also Seki's best friend. Also happens to be the Queen of the Witch World in disguise.
- The High Queen: She's the Queen of the Witch World in disguise!
- Hospital Hottie: The nurse of the girls's school
- Not So Above It All: She's appalled when the Ojamajos ask her questions about Seki-sensei's boyfriend. Even funnier is during the episode's intro, she's offended that Seki-sensei didn't tell her about this.Yuki-sensei: *during the intro of Sharp's 30th episode* No way! I was never told of this! That traitor! Traitor!Yuki-sensei: *when the Ojamajos ask her about this* No way! Seki-sensei got a boyfriend? She never told me! She suddenly changed after summer vacation. I thought it was weird, but not telling me is unforgivable! We promised we would introduce our boyfriends if we ever made any. I will wring the truth from her!
- School Nurse
- Two Aliases, One Character: She and The High Queen are one in the same.
Voiced by: Yuka Tokumitsu (Japanese), Marta Sáinz (European Spanish)
- A Day in the Limelight/Took a Level in Badass: Had an episode of Motto focusing on her being a better teacher...or rather turning into a carbon copy of Seki-sensei, to the point where she mimicked Seki-sensei's killer chalk throw perfectly.
- All Love Is Unrequited: Developed a crush on a veterinarian. The girls tried to help her realize her crush by posing as puppies. Ultimately, he already had a girlfriend. She got over this and eventually got married shortly before Ojamajo Doremi 16.
Friends at Misora School
Voiced by: Tomo Saeki (Japanese)Originally the team captain and often premier soccer player at Misora Elementary, he returns in later series as a coach due to an injury.
- Distress Ball: In almost every episode he appears in, he receives (or already has) an injury that would prevent him from playing soccer.
- Handicapped Badass: He can still play soccer pretty well with a broken arm.
- Improvised Umbrella: He uses his jacket to shelter himself and Maki when they get Caught in the Rain that Doremi creates.
- Nice Guy: Igarashi is very kind and just person. One instance of his kindness sees him requesting the coach to put fellow teammate Daichi Shibayama in a starting position even though he's horrible at soccer.
- Put on a Bus: He really serves no importance to the show and was shipped off after A Day in the Limelight moments. Sometimes The Bus Came Back once a season.
- Satellite Love Interest: He really has no purpose in the show other than being Doremi's crush.
- Sempai/Kohai: He's three years older than Doremi.
- Unresolved Sexual Tension: Has this briefly with his girlfriend Maki when they start going to separate schools and became involved in other activities that put a heavy weight on their relationship.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Igarashi has blue hair, and yes, the Curtains Match The Windows.
Tetsuya Kotake (Todd Washington)
Voiced by: Kumiko Yokote (Japanese), Kayzie Rogers (English), Rocío Azofra (European Spanish)
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Doremi.
- Bishōnen: In Ojamajo Doremi 16.
- Book Dumb
- Chick Magnet: The Light Novel Ojamajo Doremi 16 plays up his Informed Attractiveness a bit, reporting that he's gotten his own following of Fangirls.
- Image Song: "Ano Ko wo Tsurete World Cup"
- Jerk Jock: Of the Jerk with a Heart of Gold variety.
- Last Name Basis: No one calls him by his first name, Tetsuya.
- Love Confession: To Doremi. It's one of the final two things that helps Doremi snap out of her Heroic BSOD.
- Loving Bully: He bullies Doremi on occasion, but deep down, he cares about her.
- Official Couple: With Doremi two years AFTER she confessed to him in the 8th grade!
- Pet the Dog: A literal example in season 1. He gets more throughout the series.
- Puppy Love: With Doremi.
- Tsundere: A rare male example.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair
Reika Tamaki (Josie Huffington)
Voiced by: Ai Nagano (Japanese), Rosa Vivas (European Spanish)
- Academic Alpha Bitch: She has the looks, the popularity and the grades.
- Alpha Bitch: She goes out of her way to antagonize and bully other students in the earlier episodes. Lampshaded by Momoko.
- Break the Haughty: Multiple times throughout the series. The most notable would be the first time when she ran for class representative and lost due to her pride.
- Bumbling Dad: She has one for a father, but he feels sorry for it.
- Character Development: She gains even more sympathetic development during Motto, where her self-centered and bratty behavior is revealed to be caused by her loneliness and insecurity. Momoko sees through this and becomes close friends with her, and also helps others to see Reika's true self.
- Class Representative: Starts off as this until she is dethroned by Masaharu. She regains this position in Motto.
- Daddy's Girl: Reconstructed in that her father spoils her rotten because he feels guilty about letting her get seriously injured by his carelessness. When she has doubts about it due to an Armor-Piercing Question from Onpu, Reika collapses. Once this is revealed, he keeps being doting but more sincerely.
- Also, Seki-sensei tells Mr. Tamaki that the trope is not bad in itself, as long as the parents don't go overboard.
- Dumb Blonde: Subverted. While she acts like a vain, shallow Spoiled Brat, Reika is very book smart and gets very good grades.
- Green-Eyed Monster: Gets jealous of Momoko being a potential Dude Magnet.
- Hoist By Her Own Petard: When she ran for class president during S1, she would actually have won had she not goaded her opponent, Masaharu Miyamoto, into continuing his campaign.
- Honor Before Reason: See Hoist By Her Own Petard. Tamaki wanted to defeat someone running against her instead of winning by default. She goaded her opponent, Masaharu Miyamoto, into continuing because:
- Tamaki: "My Pride won't allow a win without a fight."
- Idiot Hair
- Image Song: "Super Ojou-sama!!"
- Informed Attractiveness: She's apparently supposed to be one of the best-looking girls in the class... according to herself, that is.
- Jerkass: In her earlier episodes, she often put down other students simply to make herself feel superior. This got on the nerves of the Ojamajos and prompted them to help those who oppose her.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Spoiled Brat as she is, Tamaki isn't completely evil either. Her focus episode in the first season has her going through an Heroic BSOD when she doubts that her Bumbling Dad truly loves her and bonding with Shiori.
- Last Name Basis: Reika and Shimakura are the only two girls that Doremi and her friends refer to on a Last Name Basis, probably because she holds the main antagonist role of their school lives. Hana also follows the suit, but calls her "Tamaki-chan" whereas Doremi and the other girls call her "Tamaki-san."
- Lovable Alpha Bitch: Jerkass as she is, she legitimately has a Freudian Excuse for her behavior and she is more than capable of caring about others. Several episodes of Character development later, and Doremi is more than willing to help her to become the class representative again.
- The Love Slap of Epiphany: During one of her focus episodes, she starts to feel that her Bumbling Dad doesn't love since he doesn't slap her or even reprimand her even when she's clearly in the wrong.
- Noblewoman's Laugh
- Odd Friendship: With Momoko.
- Pet the Dog: She shows her Hidden Depths and takes Shiori under her wing.
- Rich Bitch: Bought an expensive brassiere from France to show off at school in season 3. Miss Seki didn't take this well, even though she saved up the money all by herself.
- Spoiled Brat: She is typically given everything she wants by her parents. This is played with in that her dad only started doing this after making her cry.
- Tsundere: Part of her being a Jerk with a Heart of Gold involves her inability to admit her true feelings.
- Vanity Is Feminine
- Villain Ball: Holds this during the election episode during Series 1. Masaharu was about to back out due to having to see the class divided and fighting when she goaded him into staying in. Her reason for doing so was Pride rather than Pragmatic Villainy. Regardless, she ended up losing in a landslide due to his "World of Cardboard" Speech earlier.
Marina Koizumi (Amanda)
Voiced by: Oma Ichimura (Japanese), Rocío Azofra (European Spanish)
- Curtains Match the Window: Has blue eyes and dark blue hair.
- Hime Cut: Her bangs have a clean and straight cut right above her forehead.
- Flower Motif: Marina's favorite flower is the daisy, a symbol of innocence.
- Innocent Flower Girl: Marina takes care of the flowers at school, especially her favorites, the daisies.
- Purple Is the New Black: Marina's hair is implied to be black, but rather than using purple, blue was used instead for highlights.
- Ship Tease: Gets a lot of this with Takao Kimura.
- Ship Sinking: In Ojamajo Doremi 16, it's implied that they were together but broke up because they were growing apart.
- Shrinking Violet: Not as much as Hazuki, but still has shades of it. She is very shy and not the type who would get into your face easily.
- 10-Minute Retirement: When Kimura called Marina a teacher's pet, Marina decided to stop tending the flower gardens for a while as she felt that she had no other talent than being a teacher's pet.
Masaru Yada (Justin Bailey)
Voiced by: Nami Miyahara (Japanese), Gerry Meza (Latin-American Spanish), Pepe Carabias (European Spanish)
- Berserk Button: Don't you say anything bad about his mother... or his stepmother. Or touch his trumpet.
- Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: With Hazuki.

- Mistaken for Gay: By Momoko when he purchases Valentine's Day chocolate, since the tradition is for girls to give the chocolate to boys. Turns out he was just after the magical courage the girls added to the candy.
- No Social Skills: Not entirely, but at the beginning of the series, he tends to lash out instead of explaining what's bothering him. This does get a bit better as the series goes on, and is somewhat justified because he's a little kid whose life has gone through a few changes.
- The Stoic
- Not So Stoic: Several times actually. Most notably during the Courage test, when he mumbled about being unable to move his legs after everyone else got spooked by a ghost story. Another would be when he was among those who discovered the girls' secret.

- Camera Fiend: Subverted; she takes pictures due to her insecurity issues.

When they see the damage they've done, they attempt to apologize and try to set things right.
- Image Song: "Owarai no Michi"

- Idiot Hero: He attempts to fight (and insult) three bullies who are older and bigger than him. What would've happened if Kotake and Kimura didn't help turn it into a three-on-three fight and if Doremi didn't turn herself, Hadzuki and Aiko into the Maho Rangers?

- Evil Twin: She's actually Majo Rika's twin sister!
- Heel–Face Turn: Eventually becomes drinking buddies with Majo Rika.
- Honest John's Dealership: The magic items she sold while she was in control of the Mahou-Dou worked better than the items made by the girls but had serious side effects. Eventually came back to bite her in the ass.
- I Lied: Promised to remove the cursed effects of the charms she sold after losing to the girls so long as they return her Crystal Ball (and pointing out that she can't do anything without it). When the girls do, she instead teleports away, leaving the girls and Majo Rika to clean up her mess.

- Villain Exit Stage Left: Teleports away upon having her Crystal Ball being returned to her while failing to keep her end of the bargain to clean up her mess.

- Kawaiiko: Hehe often presents herself as cute.
- Older Than They Look: While Hehe's age isn't stated in the series, she's been with Majo Ruka for quite a while.

- The High Queen: She is the Queen of the Witch World and has been that way for at least 100 years.

- Leitmotif: "Majokai no Joou-sama"
- Light Is Good: Often appears in a shining carriage driven by Majorin.
- Mystical White Hair: Justified. She is a Witch, and it has been established that they do have some considerable differences from humans. She also happens to have some of the most powerful magic in the series. Only the Big Bad has stronger magic.

- Queen Incognito: She's been watching Doremi since she was five years old while in the guise of the school nurse.
- The Reveal: Was really Yuki in disguise and had been watching Doremi since she was little.
- Rapunzel Hair: Long enough to slide along the floor.

Later, he notes that the Ojamajos take too long to cast their spells and stops time to get away before Doremi is able to cast.

- Fun with Acronyms: Eventually joins the FLAT4 and they become the FLOAT5.
- Heel–Face Revolving Door: He decides to stop trying near the end of Sharp. He eventually becomes good friends with Hana.
- Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: When he's screwing up, which is every time the FLAT4 decide to dump Hana on him whenever they're about to fail and get caught.
- Ironic Hell: Spent season 2 trying to kidnap Hana. Spends season 3 and most of season 4 helping out at the Witch Kindergarten. Subverted since he seems to have accepted it, even though he sometimes tries to sneak off to see Onpu's performances.
- Leitmotif: "Kumikyoku Alexander T. Oyajide"
- Let's Get Dangerous: He can be genuinely capable when he's not being an Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain. In fact, he can be quite Dangerously Genre Savvy.
- Lolicon: His advances on Onpu would ensure this.
- Lucky Seven: Subverted. He may be number 7 in Onpu's fan club, but he's less lucky than your average perverted old wizard.
- Mentor Mascot: Appeared to be a second one in Season 1. Averted more or less because his job at the time was to recapture the bad cards.
- Nice Guy: Despite being a Dirty Old Man, he is quite a very nice man, such as playing a melody on the piano to help the babies fall asleep and playing with Hana when she was just a toddler and granting her desire to see the Ojamajos again.
- Power-Up: He one consumed a magic-enhancing fruit that left him able to take on the girls even when they were in Royal Patraine.
- Punny Name: Oyaji means old-man.
- Single-Target Sexuality: He's Onpu-sexual in later arcs.
- Stalker with a Crush: Whle he is a fanboy of Onpu, his tendencies mark him as this, given that he sends her flowers in almost every scene he shares with her and clearly enjoys being in her presence.
- Taken for Granite: Uses this on the girls in episode 22 of ''Sharp''. He tries it again in episode 23. It doesn't work.
- Would Hurt a Child: Turned all the Ojamajos into stone when he was first sent to capture Hana. Later, he even used the other babies as hostages to get away from the girls and force the older witches to comply.
King of the Wizard World
- Baleful Polymorph: He is implied to have suffered a similar curse as the Curse of Majo Gaeru.
- Big Bad: Of Sharp since he ordered the kidnapping of Hana. Ultimately subverted.
- Poor Communication Kills: Had he been more clear about why he wanted Hana, then Philippe wouldn't have sent Oyajide to kidnap Hana.
- Reasonable Authority Figure
- The Reveal: He had actually been transformed into a lizard by means which he won't explain and only wanted Hana so she could change him back.
Count Philippe S. Ojijide
- Dragon-in-Chief: He follows the King's orders yet calls most of the shots before the King's true intentions for Hana were revealed.
- Evil Chancellor: Yep. Until the King of the Wizard World stripped him of that title.
- Heel–Face Turn: After he learned the error of his ways, he was demoted from his position, though he is seen working directly under the King in later episodes and doing his best to help the Ojamajos in Dokkan.
- Laser-Guided Karma: His attempts at provoking a war against the Witch World to regain fertile land needed to save the Wizards ended up with him being stripped of his title and rank.
- Poor Communication Kills: Misinterpreted the King's orders to kidnap Hana. He thought the King wanted to make war on the witches when in reality he wanted Hana to break the curse over him.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: He had Hana kidnapped so as to make war on the Witches in an effort to regain their lost land and have a better chance at surviving.
The FLAT4A group of four young Wizards who assist Oyajide in capturing Hana during Sharp.
Tropes shared by all of them:
- Affably Evil: They were genuinely nice and cared about one another despite their intentions.
- Becoming the Mask: All four of them put on a facade to try and get closer to the Ojamajos with the express purpose of kidnapping Hana. Over time, however, they started growing uncomfortable tricking them like this and it in turn made doubt whether they should continue. This ultimately leads to their Heel–Face Turn.
- Bishōnen: Even from a young age, they were notably good-looking. When they come back in Ojamajo Doremi 16, Aiko even comments on how feminine they look in appearance.
- Chick Magnet: When they show up again in Dokkan, all four of them are dragged away from the Ojamajos by the girls in the school they end up attending; they made it clear that they didn't want the Ojamajos interfering with them.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Everyone except Akatsuki, when it comes to the wonders of the "human world."
- Curb-Stomp Battle: There was very little the girls could do when they finally fought them, even after Akatsuki allowed them to change into Royal Patraine. They No Selled the girls' attacks one by one before Akatsuki personally trapped them in bubbles that they would waste their Royal Seeds on just to escape. Even after Doremi managed to escape with one attempt, it was unlikely that she would've been able to defeat all four of them by herself.
- Demoted to Extra: When they reappear in Dokkan, they don't have as much of a role than they did when they were in Sharp.
- Et Tu, Brute?: Particularly Akatsuki, but all four share this since they deceived the girls.
- Evil Counterpart: Akatsuki, Fujio, Leon, and Tooru to Doremi, Hazuki, Aiko, and Onpu, respectively.
- Fun with Acronyms:
- Fujio the "F", Leon the "L", Akatsuki the "A", and Tooru the "T"; together they are the FLAT4. Oyajide later joined with "O" to make them the FLOAT5.
- Flat is the musical opposite of Sharp, marking the FLAT4 as being the Psycho Rangers to the girls. When Oyajide makes them the FLOAT5 during Dokkan, they help keep things afloat by providing support while the Ojamajos (sans Hana and Pop, the former because she is assisting them boys and latter because she's been Demoted to Extra) hurry to awaken Majo Tourbillon.
- Hopeless Suitor: To everyone but Akatsuki; not one of the FLAT4 has any luck in scoring dates with their respective counterparts since the girls rejected their first advances. Akatsuki is the only exception because Doremi returns his feelings. This is averted in the manga, where it is established that the Ojamajos have crushes on their respective counterparts.
- Heel–Face Turn: All of them turn good after Doremi tells them that there is another way to save the Wizard World. It is cemented when both groups work together to reach the Wizard World castle.
- Leitmotif: One of the songs in "Kumikyoku Alexander T. Oyajide" tends to play during their appearances. The song "Bokutachi Elite Mahoutsukai" also fits the bill.
- Local Hangout: Their Bad-Guy Bar takes place in a local burger shop at a metropolitan mall.
- No Sell: They effortlessly block the Ojamajos' attacks during episode 46 of Sharp. Then, rather than try to overcome their defenses, they seal the girls within bubbles made from their powerful magic.
- Psycho Rangers: They are the villainous counterparts to the Ojamajos; cementing this is that the Ojamajos represent Sharp while the FLAT4 represent the musical opposite, Flat.
- Punch Clock Villain: The FLAT4 rotate for missions. If any of them is having an "off" day, he'll usually spend the rest of the day doing whatever he wants and won't stay to help out any of his teammates.
- Put on a Bus: After restoring peace in the Wizard World by the end of Sharp, the FLAT4 took a Long Bus Trip. The Bus Came Back in Dokkan.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad: They have their own little quirks (Akatsuki and his fondness of Battle Rangers, Fujio and his note-taking, Leon and his interest in sports and Engrish, and Tooru and his interest in becoming an Idol). And they happen to be the elite of the Wizard World and prove it when they curbstomp the Ojamajos despite the latter being in Royal Patraine at the time.
- Spear Counterpart: To the girls in Sharp; the girls represent Sharp while they represent Flat, two opposites in music.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: All four of them were trying to kidnap Hana [[so they could use her powerful magic to help save the Wizard World from doom.]]

- Badass Boast: After Tooru's Evil Gloating, he applies one of these right before single-handily disabling the girls.
- Akatsuki: "Magic can also be used like this."
- Becoming the Mask: His affection towards Doremi was a ploy to get close enough to kidnap Hana at first. Eventually evolved into true affection and ultimately caused his Heel–Face Turn.
- Dangerously Genre Savvy: Seals the girls within bubbles so as not to worry about their magic-repelling uniforms. Before that, he and his buddies usually dump the blame for their failed schemes on Oyajide and let him take the punishment while they maintain their facade.
- Dragon with an Agenda: While he does follow Oyajide's orders, he tends to do things so that Oyajide pays for his screw ups.
- Et Tu, Brute?: During Sharp episode 46. He finally reveals his true colors to Doremi and confesses that he had been using her all this time just to get close to Hana. Doremi understandably does not take it well.
- Fanboy: Becomes a huge fan of Battle Rangers. In fact, what makes him really guilty about pretending to be Doremi's friend was the fact that she gave him a limited edition action figure of Battle Red...
- Honor Before Reason: During Sharp episode 46, he allowed the Ojamajos to transform into Royal Patraine. He did this to "Make the final battle fair". Not that it really mattered...
- I Did What I Had to Do: Took Hana several times on orders from Ojijide and Oyajide in order to help save the Wizard World.
- King Incognito: More like "Prince Incognito", but the principle is the same. Was really the prince of the Wizard World. Not even the rest of the FLAT4 knew.
- Leitmotif: "A wa Akatsuki no A", though it's rarely played in-show.
- Love Triangle: Gets caught in one with Doremi and Kotake. Ultimately loses out.
- The Leader: Of the FLAT4.
- Let's Fight Like Gentlemen: It was his decision to let the girls change into Royal Patraine. He and the FLAT4 still run roughshod over them.
- The Reveal: He is really the Prince of the Wizard World. Even the rest of the FLAT4 didn't know.
- The Rival: Becomes one to Kotake in regards to winning Doremi's affections.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: He is the Prince of the Wizard World, and he does a lot to try and save it. Later, he does as much as he can to help out in keeping the cursed vines in check.

- Stalker with a Crush: Started off as a Stalker Without A Crush, but after Aiko inspires him to work harder, he turns into this.
- The Worf Effect:
- His first focus episode introduced him as being highly adept at sports. He spent the majority of the episode trying to defeat Aiko in various sports after she beat him.
- During Dokkan, he actually ends up lunging into a lamp post and collapsing onto the ground. Granted, he was trying to get a cursed vine, but that was a pretty bone-headed move on his part.
- He actually manages to do this to Aiko during Sharp episode 46 by effortlessly blocking Aiko's own Royal Patraine attack.
- Worthy Opponent: Sees Aiko as this.

- Ambiguously Brown: Tooru is more dark-skinned than the rest of the FLAT4.
- Bad Bad Acting: When Tooru plays an extra in a drama series Onpu is starring in, his acting is over-the-top, unnatural, and annoys the director.
- Cute but Cacophonic: With the "cute" coming from the art style.
- Dangerously Genre Savvy: Attempts to attack the Ojamajos before they transformed into Royal Patraine. Akatsuki stopped him because he wanted to make the final fight fair.
- Evil Gloating: After he blocks Onpu's attack during episode 46 of Sharp.Tooru: "You're weak!"
- Fanboy: Becomes one to Onpu. He's even the millionth member in her fan club!
- Gratuitous English: Once when he tried to recite one of Onpu's songs during an audition.
- Hollywood Tone-Deaf: While he is an excellent dancer despite having improvised moves, his "singing" voice is enough to cause anyone who listens cover their ears. First was a test audience when he applies to be an idol for the first time, and the second is when he was asked to sing by the judges during Dokkan.
- Idol Singer: He's trying to be this, but fails miserably. But he is really good at dancing, though.
- It's All About Me: In his focus episode, he tried to make the movie Onpu was playing a role in about him because of his "talent". He got thrown out of production and dragged out of the studio for his attitude.
- Know-Nothing Know-It-All: Thought he knew everything about being an idol. Onpu thankfully set him straight.
- Leitmotif: "T wa Tooru no T"
- No Sell: He conjures a barrier to protect against Onpu's whirlwind attack.
- Pride: Believed himself to be fully capable of doing anything with impressive skill, up to and including being an idol like Onpu. In fact, the main reason he kidnapped Hana during episode 41 of Sharp was to spite Onpu for telling him off.Tooru: "You're a hundred Years Too Early to be lecturing me!"
- Small Name, Big Ego: He thought he had an incredible amount of talent regarding being an idol when he really had no idea what he was doing. Subverted later after a Kirk Summation from Onpu when she continued to perform despite an injury (from him no less!).
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has teal hair, but the principle is the same. It is not unusual for Wizards or Witches to have unusual hair colors.
The former Witch Queen and her family
The former Witch Queen/Majo Tourbillon
- Anti-Villain: Had she not suffered so much in the Human World, she would not taken such drastic measures to make sure other Witches didn't suffer the same fate.
- Baleful Polymorph: Not her specifically, but she is responsible for it. She is the one who cast the Witch Frog Curse.note
- Big Bad: She only comes in toward the end of Sharp, but her influence is what ultimately drives the plot from then on outside of slice of life episodes.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Delivers one of these to the girls in Sharp episode 49 and would've done the same during Motto episode 50. It's implied she did this to every other Witch who entered her lair...
- Dark Magical Girl: She replaces Onpu as this for the series. She is deeply and emotional scarred, she is quite powerful, and she will stop at nothing to make sure her goals of keeping Witches from suffering as she had suffered continue to be fulfilled.
- Demonic Possession: Uses her spectral projection to do this to Momoko, taking over her body and trapping her mind in a Lotus-Eater Machine.
- Eldritch Location: Not her, but where she spends the majority of the series: the Cursed Forest. note
- Evil Laugh: She does this after cursing Hana during the second half of Motto.
- The Faceless: Played with. In a flashback, her face is either covered by her veil or hidden by her hair. Subverted in Motto 50 when her true appearance is revealed.
- Forgiveness: One of the things she needs to let go is her anger and resentment at herself for letting Anri die in front of her and for letting George die alone.
- Freudian Excuse: She wants to prevent witches from contacting humans so as to protect them from the pain she suffered while she was in the human world.
- God Save Us from the Queen!: She serves as the main antagonist of the series starting with Sharp and causes a lot of damage by herself. And even though she gets over her past grief, her despair continues wrecking havoc.
- Hot Witch: Despite being over 1000 years old and being in the Cursed Forest for that long, she has kept her physical beauty.
- I Know Your True Name: The girls call her by her real name to restore her original humanly nature during their battle.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Does this to her personal chef. Such magic is forbidden (as Onpu found out), yet she could pull it off without getting cursed into slumber.
- Mayfly-December Romance: She fell in love with and wed to George, a human man, 1000 years before the start of the series. As a Witch, she was assured to live for centuries even when she gave up her magic while George would age and die in only so many decades, ensuring that she would outlive him had his tragic accident not occurred.
- Meaningful Name: Tourbillon is French for "Spiral" or "Whirlwind", and her spectral projection does occasionally swirl around like a whirlwind or spiral. She even protected the Love Supreme Flower by using a whirlwind of magic.
- Named After Someone You Love: George, her husband, made a sweet named Tourbillon My Love as a marriage proposal to her.
- No Name Given: Like the Queen of the Witch World, her name was unknown until the end of Motto, when the girls are told her real name.
- Outliving One's Offspring: Even though she was a Witch, her own children were born from her womb, not a rose from the Witch World. Therefore, for all intents and purposes, they are human and thus would have the standard human lifespan. The main one that comes to mind is seeing her own son grow old and die right in front of her during her backstory in Sharp.
- Physical God: Is established to have the most powerful magic of any witch in the last 1000 years and has proven capable of beating Doremi, Hazuki, Aiko, and Onpu even when they used Royal Patraine.
- Picky Eater: She hated vegetables and used various recipes made by her personal chef to get around it. She later cursed Hana to have this same thing.
- Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Not quite black per se; more like a very deep blue. Her skin is still pale, though its to be expected since she was inside the Cursed Forest for a thousand years. She remains a Hot Witch.
- Really 700 Years Old: Or rather, a thousand years old.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: A villainous example until her Heel–Face Turn. She drives several key events beginning at the end of Sharp and throughout Motto, such as cursing Hana, trying to kill her outright, possessing Momoko, and casting the Witch Frog Curse. Justified since she is the Big Bad.
- Start of Darkness: Zigzagged. The death of her husband contributed to this. However, her son helped her to avoid it, along with her grandchildren. Played straight again when her grandchildren left and her son died of old age right in front of her.
- Star-Crossed Lovers: With George Bennett.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: She only wished to prevent humans and witches from meeting so as to keep the witches from suffering as she did.
- Who Wants to Live Forever?: Gets hit with this hard when her son dies of old age right in front of her.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Not to the extent of most, but still qualifies.

- Star-Crossed Lovers: With Majo Tourbillon.
- Sweet Tooth: Not exactly said but since he's a baker it's not too far off.

- Friend to All Children: Especially to Lola. It's implied that she was very hurt when the latter left her and Majo Tourbillon.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold

- Coattail-Riding Relative: In the English dub by 4Kids, the Pappaya Brothers were made into Hazuki's uncle and his friend, hoping to get on Hazuki's mother's good side so they could use some of her wealth to fund their comedy act. In the original version, they had no relation to Hazuki and her family, and just wanted to kidnap Hazuki to use the ransom money for their comedy act.

- One-Shot Character: Both of them only appear in one episode in the early first season. Neither are seen or heard from since.

- Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: Possibly.
- Astral Projection: Possibly
- Big Brother Instinct: He lets Hana tag along with him because she reminds him of his sister.
- Dead All Along: It's strongly hinted that he's this.
- Holding Hands
- Must Make Amends: He feels guilty about making his sister cry.
- No Name Given: On the credits of the episode he appeared in, he's simply named "Boy." The Ojamajo Doremi Memorial Album gives his name as "Kyousuke" in the character sketches.
- Unfinished Business: It's implied that he isn't able to move on because he's worried about his sister.
- Acting for Two: In-Universe: She plays both leading parts in her one-woman production of The Young Maiden and the Old Lady.
- Batman Gambit: He goes after those he finds as naive and wealthy and puts up an affable facade to lure them in. For those who do seek him out, once they're in his clutches, he's all but won no matter what happens. They get married? He gets their wealth and would likely cut them off. They find out and confront him? He reveals and revels in his Jerkassery as his victim is driven off in tears. None of this is possible if his mark doesn't show up for whatever reason.
- Break the Cutie: What he does to poor Reiko. His nonchalant way of saying it implies that she might not have been his first victim...
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He gives Reika a jacket while it's raining to help keep her dry so she would have a reason to seek him out and return it. He eventually reveals that he set it up just to either get her wealth by marriage OR get a sick kick out of toying with her emotions.
- Card-Carrying Villain: He knows he's bad and actively revels in it when he's busy kicking his victims.
- The Charmer: One of his traits that he uses to lure his victims in. He will legitimately help someone out when they're in trouble and displays and open and friendly demeanor.
- Evil Gloating: Pulls this after Reiko finds out his true nature. The fact that she is in a position where she can't do anything about it just makes him look more evil.
- Evil Laugh: Gives one as Reiko runs away in tears.
- Faux Affably Evil: He's also one of the only genuinely evil characters in the whole series.
- False Friend: He helps Reiko out by lending her his jacket when it starts raining. This leads to her tracking him down and meeting him, where he introduces himself and the two become friends. He eventually reveals his Nice Guy demeanor was a ruse to get in good with a wealthy lady and psychologically hurts Reiko when she finds out he lied about his works.
- Foreshadowing: He mentions that he's an "unpopular poet". Then you see what he does later on...
- For the Evulz: His other motivation for hurting Reiko in her Backstory is simply because he can.
- Gold Digger: One of his motivations for getting in good with Reiko was because he wanted her family's wealth.
- Jerk Ass: Breaks the hearts of naive girls just because he can and plagiarizes to make himself seem better in their eyes.
- Karma Houdini: He is never given any real comeuppance for his actions. If anything, he was left free to keep doing to other hapless women what he did to Reiko. It's even possible he succeeded in marrying into wealth and becoming a Domestic Abuser.
- Kick the Dog: What he does to his victims should they confront him.
- Knight of Cerebus: He isn't an Anti-Villain like the other enemies thus far have been. Even more unusually for this trope, he only appears in episode 42 of Dokkan and is never mentioned again.
- One-Shot Character: Only appears in episode 42 of Dokkan, and even then it was only during a flashback. Considering what he did in that episode, let's be very thankful.
- Pet the Dog: What he also does to lure in his victims. Case in point: He give Reiko his jacket to help her against the rain without even asking for anything in return, all with the intent of giving her a reason to track him down and come into his clutches.
- Plagiarism in Fiction: He copied poems from a book of famous poems and passed them off as his own to aid in luring Reiko in. He was uncovered as a plagiarist when Reiko's mother showed her a copy of said book and Reiko made the connection. She confronted him on the subject and the rest is brutal history.
- Prince Charmless: He is a legitimately charming person, but his true colors are anything but charming.
- The Sociopath: He doesn't care how much he hurts his victims. If anything, he gets off on it. His personality and actions are also quite close to those of real life sociopaths too.
- Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: The only truly evil villain in the show proper, even more evil than the Wizards and the Previous Witch Queen, given how he revels in Reiko's pain and heartbreak.
