The hero. Haru Glory came from a small island that's referred to as incredibly far out in the sticks and lacks knowledge of most any world history or geographical features.

- Twice Shy: With Elie.
- Unresolved Sexual Tension: With Elie.
- Unstoppable Rage: Both when he uses Sacrifar and when Lucia almost kills Shuda.

Even The Author Doesn't Know What He Is
Rave's bearer. Plue is a dog(?) with an unknown gender and age who travels with either the wielder of Etherion or the Rave (or both) and helps guide them. He doesn't do much as far as guiding them, but he does occasionally help either Haru or Elie when they're in a tight spot. He came dangerously close to being renamed Shabutaro by Haru and Cattleya.
The main female. Elie is a cheerful amnesiac girl who's just a little off and really
likes bugs. She and Haru met in a racing track (a casino, in the anime) where she quickly fell for him because of his kind heart. She follows him around and is revealed to possess the ultimate magic, known as Etherion. She also bears a strong resemblance to Resha Valentine, who passed away fifty years ago, to everyone's continuous confusion.
- Action Girl: She started actively fighting on her own the first time the team fought the Oracion Six, and as time goes on, she's ultimately strong enough to blow holes in Cosmic Horrors.
- Amnesiac Hero
- Amnesia Danger: Had she retained her memories she could have wiped every villain from existence rather than been kidnapped by each and every one (save King).

- Apocalypse Maiden: She could destroy the world, but she's also the only thing that can stop the ultimate evil monster.

- Belly Dancer: During a dance contest and during her days as Resha.

- Born Lucky: She's usually in charge of winning money for the group through gambling because she has such good luck that the best way to gain money fast is to set her loose in a casino.

- The Chick: Her role in the band.

- Dangerously Short Skirt
- Dual Tonfas: With built-in guns.
- Dude Magnet: Haru, Shiba back when she was Resha and many other males are instantly drawn to her. Unfortunately, it also gets negative attention. To clarify, Lucia when he becomes the ruler of the original world wants her to be his bride and Ogre wants her to be his plaything.
- Extraordinarily Empowered Girl
- Fake Memories: In the anime she recalls being branded as a Test Subject 3173 in the middle of her talk with Sieg. There was no Test Subject 3173.

- Kill the Ones You Love: In the final battle, she's forced to destroy the Endless with Haru inside. Fortunately, Haru is revived by the Star Memory.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Having no idea who she is or how to use her magic doesn't stop her from reading a dead language.

- Magic Staff: Gets one in the Blue Guardians arc, to which she uses it to harness her true power.
- Meaningful Name: ELIE 3173. It's initially thought to be a test subject mark (humorously, the person who thinks this has a name that flips to make a number too) but is actually the coordinates for her empty grave.
- Ms. Fanservice: As if her short skirt, long legs, and tank top revealing her full arms and most of her stomach that she wears as her casual outfit weren't enough, Episode 19 has her flat out dressing in a bikini. Lessened once Belinka, Celia and Julia came along and took some of the load off her.

A strange blue creature originally recruited by Elie to help her and Haru reach the mountain they suspect a Rave stone to be at. He quickly becomes a member of the main cast, and is supposed to be very skilled at map making. His hobby is peeping on Elie. Every other character is better than him
Voiced by: Katsuya Shiga (JP), Tom Kenny
- The Load: Invaluable as he is as a cartographer and navigator, he is completely useless in a fight.
- Lovable Sex Maniac: Or the not so lovable one.
- Non-Human Sidekick: Like Plue, we never learn what kind of creature he is.
- Normally, I Would Be Dead Now: Being sliced in two does normally kill one. What kind of bizarre natural selection gives someone the ability to become two people after being sliced in two? What kind of bizarre natural selection makes anything like Griff, for that matter.
- The Peeping Tom: Downplayed in the dub, where he's more obsessed with Master Plue.
Silver Claimer and Chick Magnet
A silver claimer (someone who can manipulate silver) and former gang leader who teams up with Haru after reuniting with his grandfather.

Voiced by: Takehiro Murozono (JP), Doug Stone (EN)
- Adaptation Dye-Job: In the manga and Fairy Tail crossover his hair is white. In the anime it's blond, so that he could pass as Super Saiyan Goku.

- Chastity Couple: Let and Julia look and act like they're Vitriolic Best Buds most of the time (or Julia acts this way, and Let acts like the team grandpa). While a relationship is there if you know to look for it, you only know to look because each has a single occasion where they openly say there's something between them.
- Childhood Friend Romance: With Julia.
- Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Several suicide attacks. He manages to use three. In a story with lots of death, he's good at slipping around it.
- Draconic Humanoid: Let, at least initially. All members of the Dragon Race go through a phase where they spend some time in this state, before either conquering or succumbing to their inner dragon. Let conquers his and becomes more human-like in appearance afterward. His former flame, Julia, succumbed, and ended up a full fledged dragon. At least until he cures her.

- Opposites Attract: With Julia.
- Punch Clock Villain: He's not nearly as kill happy as most of the Demon Card, only interested in fights prior his Heel-Face Turn.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Two ways, the more pragmatic and level headed to Haru's brash impulsiveness and Musica's more frivolous behavior.

Badass Dragon Lady
Let's polar opposite girlfriend. She spent a good deal of time stuck as a dragon under Jegan's control, but once she changes back she joins Haru's team. She's the most violent member of the team, especially when it comes to her boyfriend, but she also takes on a somewhat motherly role. She also really wants Haru and Elie to hook up.

- Brainwashed and Crazy: She spends a long time as a dragon under Jegan's control.
- Breath Weapon: Like Let, she can breathe Fire.
- Characterization Marches On: For a long while, she was portrayed as the Girl Next Door to Let. Cue to the Blue Guardians Arc, where this is changed to more of an Action Girl with a drinking problem and no problem with her nudity.
- Chastity Couple: Let and Julia look and act like they're Vitriolic Best Buds most of the time (or Julia acts this way, and Let acts like the team grandpa). While a relationship is there if you know to look for it, you only know to look because each has a single occasion where they openly say there's something between them.
- Childhood Friend Romance: With Let.
- Clingy Jealous Girl
- Cool Big Sis: To the Rave Master team.

- Shipper on Deck: As stated above, for Haru and Elie.
- Taking You with Me: Attempted during one fight against an opponent who could turn himself into acid. When her regular attacks don't work, she resorts to throw herself and him out of the airship they were fighting on and tricks him into liquefying that he evaporates into nothing while she fully intended to fall to her death. Luckily a nearby dragon happened to show up and save her.
- Wrestler in All of Us: Her style is more akin to grappling rather then martial arts that her boyfriend uses.

Cool Big Sis
Haru's older sister and mother figure. She took over raising him after their dad vanished and their mother left to find him and came back in a body bag. She has little actual role in the series, but is Haru's initial motivation to train and it's implied that she may have forced a little of his nice personality upon him.
The First Rave Master
The previous Rave Master. He was close to Resha Valentine, the creator of Rave, so when she gave her life or not
to make them so they'd work for him. He fought in the war against Dark Bring and failed to destroy the ultimate one at the very end of the battle, leading to Haru having to pick up where he left off fifty years later. He eventually fights Haru at his prime thanks to a potion. He still loses and dies due to its after effects.

The first (and for a long while, only) sorcerer introduced. Sieg Hart is a magic swordsman obsessed with protecting time, which comes from being raised in a town with the same obsession. He's initially introduced as an assassin after both Elie and King, but after Haru stops Elie's Etherion without killing her Sieg has a change of heart and makes it his goal to protect Elie at all costs.
- Badass: So much that it would've been cheap to have him fight in the last battle, so they killed him off.
- Breakout Character: So popular that his design was reused no less than three times in another series, once as a major character.
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: By the end of the series he's been everyone's enemy at some point. It's a little hard to notice because he's usually allied to multiple groups, but Shuda calls him out on it at one point.

- Curtains Match the Window: A mysterious blue haired pretty boy, so popular it was used...thrice in his following series!

- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: He has a magic battle that lasts seven whole days. Only the first couple spells and the last strikes of the match are shown.
- One-Man Army: When Haja turns his village against him and he escapes. He takes on the whole village by himself. Even better, he did it without a single fatality using nothing but a sword and low magic power.
- Post-Victory Collapse: After his fight with Haja. In his defense, he went a whole week without food or water, since it's the most ridiculously long fight in the series.
- Purple Eyes: In the anime.
- Redemption Equals Death: It came late for him, though.
- Tomato Surprise: Remember that skeleton in Symphonia? That was Sieg who was left Trapped in the Past.
- Trapped in the Past: He stays trapped 50 years in the past after sending Haru and Elie back to the present. He decides not do anything, not even eat, in order to not alter history in the slightest. (Not that he doesn't go and talk to someone immediately after, but at that point he realized he was supposed to, to make history play out the way it did.) Not to mention pulling off a Gondor Calls for Aid for 50 years down the road.

- Action Dad: Though technically, he didn't know his son survived Slade's assault
- Anti-Villain: Type II all the away! All he wanted was to have justice maintained no matter what, even when it meant using underhanded methods then Gale Glory, had a Horrible Judge of Character in trusting the Empire to arrest him. Long story short, it resulted in a complex, but mutual hatred for one another.
- BFS: His Decalogue sword, the Evil Counterpart to the Ten Powers
- Big Bad: The first of four, but was supposed to be the final one
- Blond Guys Are Evil: Not by choice.
- Cosmic Plaything: Not that he knows it.
- Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You: Leaves his biological son to fend for himself at age six and gives his adopted son abandonment issues. In the first case, he didn't realize that Lucia had survived the attack on Demon Card, and was still mourning him a decade later. In Deep Snow's, he failed to properly explain that he was being sent away so he could lead a better life, not because he wasn't wanted.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Arguably the saddest in the series.
- Disc One Final Boss: His son picks up the role Big Bad after his defeat. Consider that there are still two rave stones to collect when Haru confronts him.

- Blow You Away: His sword has the same Mel Force form as Haru's. He gets the ability earlier, though.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Used against him with a vengeance when Haru gets the Third Rave Stone
- One Steve Limit: Arguably deconstructed. Since his true name is Gale as well, but changed it to King to differentiate between the two
- One-Winged Angel: By activating the Forbidden Dark Bring, Monster Prison he turns into a bestial version of himself
- Perma Stubble
- Redemption Equals Death: Or suicide.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: In his Monster Prison form
- Revenge by Proxy: Gale told the Imperials where Demon Card's Headquarters is with the deal of taking King alive as prisoner to end his corrupt ways. To his horror, the Imperials killed all the people inside the Headquarters including King's wife and son (presumably). As revenge for it, King broke out of prison and killed Gale's wife, Sakura, in front of him.
- Sanity Slippage: What is frightening about Monster Prison, is that it makes the user become a mindless force of savagery.
- Start of Darkness: The loss of his family.
- Sympathy for the Devil: Normally his killing of Sakuya would've been a major Kick the Dog moment, but since it came right after he lost his wife and son, he comes off as far more tragic for doing so
- Walking Spoiler

"Your existence is surreal"

- The Antichrist: He believes (and with some pretty sound reasoning) that the meaning of his life is to destroy the universe.

- Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Despite all but boasting that his father's death didn't affect him, his mother's clearly did. He mentions her death as the first thing to go wrong in his life (while not even touching on his father) and named the final form of his sword after her.
- Evil Counterpart: Done as much as possible with Haru. Both are teenage boys born on July 7th, 0050, had fathers named Gale, grandfathers of royalty, carry swords with ten different forms, and have a crush on Elie. Their personality is what sets them apart; Haru is an All-Loving Hero while Lucia is an Omnicidal Maniac.
- Forceful Kiss: Steals Elie's first kiss.
- Freudian Excuse: His getting caught up in the first attack on Demon Card and being locked away in Mega Unit.

- Laser-Guided Tykebomb: Courtesy of the Sinclaire stone.
- Late-Arrival Spoiler: One of the biggest plot twists regarding Lucia is that he isn't dead. The reader is even treated to his Start of Darkness several volumes before learning his character exists as more than a one off in somebody else's tragic backstory.
- Like Father, Like Son Very much, except a little more paranoid and more of a Jerkass
- Murder the Hypotenuse: One of the reasons he tries to kill Haru.

- The Power of Hate: The tenth form of his sword, Dark Emilia.
- Room Full of Crazy: Sieg discovers that Lucia's room was very much this.

- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: The first flashback of him as a kid even has him hiding from a stranger behind his mom.
- Villainous Breakdown: Has a minor one when fighting Haru for a second one as the latter proved stronger then he was and tried to feel sorry for him, making this also a case of Don't You Dare Pity Me!.
- Then their last fight has him basically blurting out the reasons for wanting the world to die!
- Villainous Crush: On Elie.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: He was thrown into jail for ten years just for being King's son, however, Lucia in the present, is far less sympathetic
Tropes Associated With Oracion Seis
The second Demon Card general introduced. A silver claimer like Musica. She tries to play up her looks and likes to flirt, though she isn't really interested in most men. She's also fiercely loyal to King, and hates working under Lucia. She eventually does a Heel-Face Turn
after falling for Musica.
Yandere Dragon Illusionist Bio-Manipulator
The third Demon Card general introduced. Jegan is the serious, strong silent type, with a sword larger than Haru's
. He was a childhood friend of Julia and Let's
, but went just a little crazy when the Love Triangle
didn't work in his favor.
Demon Card general. A Sentinoid
who works for Demon Card presumably out of boredom. He's impressed by Lucia's ruthlessness and manages to convince the Demon Lords to bow to him.

- Our Demons Are Different: It's not made clear if he and the Demon Lords are a different race than the demonoids

- Spell My Name with an "S": The English manga uses "Berial".
The fifth Demon Card general, who acts as temporary leader in the lull between King an Lucia's rule. He's also Demon Card's primary sorcerer. He's eventually revealed to be from the same origins as Sieg with the same mission
, but isn't quite as willing to convert to the light.

- He's able to fight evenly with Sieg after he becomes strong enough for a week straight without tiring.
- Big Bad Wannabe: Attempts to wipe out every threat to himself in order to rule supreme, yet he is defeated through a stab by a wooden staff.
- Dragon with an Agenda: While he is viewed to be the righthand man of King, in reality, he is working with a secret magic society in order to preserve the natural order by taking him and his son down. Hell, even that's not completely true, it really turns out he's trying to wipe both the Demon Card and the magic society he was born in, all so he can rule the universe with his infinite magic.
- Cool Helmet: Twice, first the one in the image, and the second is even cooler after some serious Art Evolution

- You Have Failed Me: Haja has Jegan offed for this.
The sixth, and vain, Demon Card general. Julius has serious moments once in a blue moon, and usually only because the enemy dared to strike him in the face. In spite of his goofy attitude, he's a powerful fighter, and the other generals tolerate his behavior. He seems to be the only general who acknowledges Shuda as an equal.
One of the four generals for The Empire
, who defects to Demon Card after Lucia takes over. He's later revealed to be King's adopted son, who was sent away to be "saved from the path of darkness". He has no attatchment to Lucia, but serves Demon Card in order to try to satisfy King.

- Dangerous Forbidden Technique: His forbidden Dark Bring is able to awaken the hidden power of humans, enough to beat the crap of Shuda.
- Improbable Age: Explained away by him aging 2.5 times faster than a normal person, but he was a baby when Emilia and Sakura died. In other words, he's only been alive about ten years during the events of the story. And even if you count him as 25, he's still a 25 year old who was one of the Empire's top generals, despite having no connections to propel him to that point and, at most, eight years to climb the social ladder. (Or three, if you don't want to count the time it would take him to reach a reasonable age to enlist.)

- Dark and Troubled Past: Not as bad as King's but a dark showing on Fantastic Racism

- Insane Troll Logic: Apparently destroying all existence counts as becoming the richest being in existence.
- Jerkass: Every word he says is just demeaning.

- My God, What Have I Done?: Goes with his Villainous Breakdown.
- Politically Incorrect Villain: He's racist against non humans for no reason than human superiority, which is shared by all of his organization even the Ambiguously Human ones

- Badass Grandpa: In spite of being the worst parent and horrible human being, he's the strongest sorcerer in the series
- Plus he is Lucia's grandfather
- Bait the Dog: The Raregroove king was implied to be a Well-Intentioned Extremist until he was revealed to be a a sadistic sorcerer who started the war For the Evulz.
- Also putting King up for adoption was only to have him grow up and destroy the universe for him rather than any concern
- Big Bad: Back 50 years ago, when he was king of Raregroove.
- Bigger Bad: He's Haja's teacher and is much stronger than him.
- He's also this to King and Lucia, and Demon Card by proxy, since it's his use of Sinclaire that caused the war and conflict in the first place.
- Blond Guys Are Evil: The only Raregroove that truly qualifies.
- Broken Pedestal: To King, who viewed him as a Well-Intentioned Extremist and revered him as one who should have won the war.

- Magic Staff: Owns a curved one.
- Parental Abandonment: He left his son King to some family, but considering his character, it was likely he wanted him to grow and destroy the universe as soon as possible rather than concern.
- Perpetual Frowner: He only smiled once, and that was a merely a second.

- The Sociopath: And how! He's easily the least sympathetic Raregroove in the series
- The Stoic: Most of the time.

The Four Demon Lords
Megido, Juria, Uta, and Ashura (with Doryu still living according to the author, but somehow forgot to include
) They rule the Mythical Realm where all the sentinoids
come from with an iron fist. Beryl convinces them to submit themselves to Lucia. They become his Quirky Miniboss Squad during the final battle.
- Achilles' Heel: Ashura apparently forgot that being a demon filled with Dark Bring, means you're a sitting duck for the Ten Powers
- All Your Powers Combined: Ashura controls every Dark Bring, in addition to Final Story which initially allowed him to destroy any Dark Bring used against him before he gave it to Lucia.
- Ax-Crazy: Ashura and Megido especially Ashura
- Jura and Uta are more subtle, but ultimately as insane as the other two
- BFS: Uta doesn't hold a candle to God's though.
- Blood Knight: Uta, he is a Demon Lord of War after all, Megido has shades of this.
- Five-Bad Band
- The Dragon: Once Lucia scraps all his other minions, Megido especially.
- Co-Dragons: Essentially, with Megido standing out the most.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Ashura fights Haru, with the former dominating the fight after his One-Winged Angel due to his Dark Bring nature. Unfortunately, its for those same reasons, he ultimately is destroyed since the latter has the Ten Powers, which is his Achilles' Heel
- Horned Humanoid: Both Ashura and Uta, but with the former, it's a major plot point since growing a second set actually increases his powers
- An Ice Person: Juria
- Killer Rabbit: Ashura, despite his small size, was able to defeat Musica with ease
- Subverted, he's actually much bigger than in his true form
- King of Beasts: Megido looks like one.
- Literally Shattered Lives: How Ashura dies
- No Body Left Behind: Each of the Demon Lords do this as they are defeated, with the exception of Megido, whose body is melted by lava
- Oh, Crap: All of them when the heroes manage to gain the upper hand. Juria when Belnika attempts to pull a Taking You with Me on her, when Nibel uses forbidden magic to age himself and match her power and realizing Julia has found out her weakness. Uta when Let reveals he holds the spirit of the Dragon King in him and proceeds to curbstomp him. Ashura when he suddenly realizes Haru's Sword, the Ten Commandments, was made for destroying Dark Bring of which he is made out of. And Megido when Shuda slashes through his Hellfire and him along with it.
- One-Winged Angel: Uta just grows another set of horns, but Ashura follows this trope more accurately.
- Playing with Fire: Megido.
- Quirky Mini Boss Squad: For the final battle. Gave all the heroes a run for their money that left them near death due to having to use forbidden magic just to even the odds or, at best, severely wounded.
- Satan: Ashura's true form invokes this
- Squishy Wizard: Juria, who has a healing factor and can recover from most heavy damage done to her. However the group she's fighting against (Julia, Belnika and Nibel) realize while her outsides can take a lot of damage. Her insides are vulnerable as her skeleton is made of ice. Once the latter two damage her enough to paralyze her, cue Julia coming in for the finishing blow via Kiss of Death.
- Stripperific: Juria
- Stupid Evil: The only way to describe Ashura's decision to fight Haru, despite his entire body consisting of the thing that the latter's weapon was meant to destroy.
- Super Mode: Juria's hair stands up and is apparently stronger, Remind you of anything anyone?
- Taking You with Me: Megido attempts this by breaking the ground Shuda and he are fighting on and trying to drop both of them into the lava below. Is thwarted when Haru manages to save Shuda.
- Too Dumb to Live: Ashura, whose body was implanted with Dark Bring, forgot that he was fighting Haru, whose sword was made to destroy Dark Bring!
- Undying Loyalty: They swear loyalty once they see how evil Lucia is, but Megido stands out the most
- Winged Humanoid: Ashura in his true form
L'Tiangle, Rionette, Racas and Ron Glace. Five warriors from other dimensions are brought together by one of King's Dark Brings, the Gate. The guard the Tower of Din as well as being non-humans of unparalleled strength. One, Let, later does a Heel-Face Turn
and becomes one of the good guys.
L'Tiangle is voiced by: Katsuaki Arima (JP), Jeff Nimoy
Rionette is voiced by: Kousuke Okano (JP), Patricia Lentz (EN)
Racas is voiced by: Hitoshi Bifu (JP) Armando Valdes Kennedy (EN)
Ron Glace is voiced by: Souichirou Tanaka (JP) Joe Ochman

- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Racas
- Casting a Shadow: Rionette
- Creepy Monotone: Rionette and L'Tiangle
- Cross Dressing Voice: Rionnete in the English dub
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Ron
- Informed Ability: These five are said to have powers greater than a 1000 demonoids, yet they go down much quicker than most of the later Quirky Mini Boss Squad of the series.
- Additional points for Rionette for being described as the most cruel of the five, when all we saw as coldness and strange liking to weird things.
- Literally Shattered Lives: How L'Tiangle dies.
- Non-Standard Character Design: These five are much more detailed in design, especially compared to the later guardians of the major antagonists who would later appear in the story; especially L'Tiangle, who is noted to be the hardest character to draw in the whole series.
- Our Demons Are Different: Like Berial's case, it's not made clear if they are of a separate race from the Demon Lords' race; but it's clear that each of the members come from different types of Demonoid, with Ron and L'Tiangle being Animated Armor, Rionette being a tall blue creature with a long neck, skinny arms, and a tail coming out of its back and Racas being a yellow, segmented pointy eared humanoid
- Quirky Mini Boss Squad: The most notable of the series, with Racas and Rionette being the oddest of the group
- The Stoic: All of them appearance wise, only that Ron has a huge Hair-Trigger Temper and Racas is the Bunny-Ears Lawyer
- Sunglasses at Night: Racas
- Theme Naming: Adding "Ma" in front of their names gets you Maltiangle (multi-angle), Marionette, Maracas, and Maron glace (marron glace, a desert).
- Undying Loyalty: Implied to King
- Villainous Breakdown: L'Tiangle, once Musica gets ahold of him, immediately panics as he did not expect that he'd make a counterattack.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: With the notable exception of Let, the rest of the guardians are taken out before we learned anything major about them.

- Forgetful Jones: He's prone to amnesia so he can't remember his parents. Nakajima torments him by telling him lies about them. He got the bad memory from his mother.
- Straight Man: To Nakajima, poor Levin.
We don't know what he is, but there's a lot of them
A strange plant person who grows on Haru's house. He's some sort of bizarre insectivorous sunflower, but even though he's a plant he refuses to admit this. In the side-comics, he babysits Levin, mostly via tormenting him.
