The Jersey Club
Madoka KyounoThe Heroine of the series, an optimistic, kind-hearted and very energetic girl attending a One-Gender School. She's devoted to her hometown and to the duties of the Jersey Club, of which she was its sole member. When given the choice to pilot the Humongous Mecha to protect Kamogawa, in a change of pace she readily accepts, maintaining her usual cheerful demeanor the entire time. She rides the Vox Aura, a wind-elemental machine she calls "Midori", which was later armed with a sword and an energy shield.
- Accidental Misnaming: She can't seem to remember Villagiulio's name. Practically a Running Gag. In Season 2, she opts for "Giuvi-nii" instead. Still wrong, though.
- The Ace: She seems to be good at everything. Except Barehanded Blade Blocks.
- Her self-chosen alias in Episode 16 was her catchphrase (see below).
- Accidental Public Confession: In Episode 18, while trapped in an escape capsule in Yurikano's body, Madoka hits the emergency transmitter, causing her to broadcast her musings to everyone in the ongoing space battle. Said musings include the reasons behind Yurikano's sacrifice. She also lets Lan and Muginami know that she's actually Madoka, through a variation of "No One Else Is That Dumb".
- Badass Adorable: Energetic, lively, friendly, and more than ready to fight to defend her friends and hometown.
- Batter Up!: Madoka bats away a flying newspaper dispenser, using a ripped from the ground streetlight.
- Berserk Button: Don't even think you can get away with insulting or harming her comrades.
- Book Dumb: She sucks at math.
- Character Tic: She also makes an air circle.
- Chronic Hero Syndrome
- Clark Kenting: The disguise she used in Episode 16 consisted of a pair of glasses and Girlish Pigtails. Nobody was fooled.
- Cloudcuckoolander: She doesn't find anything wrong with going to school in her swimsuit.
- Combat Pragmatist: Madoka uses a ripped electrical line to try and choke Kirius' Ovus Libertas. Of course, since it's a robot, it doesn't do any good, though, it drove Kirius into a panic attack, thinking the ineffective choking might be a "finishing move" he doesn't know about.
- Crazy-Prepared: Madoka just happened to wear a swimsuit under her school uniform the day she sees someone drowning.
- Curtains Match The Windows: A pretty mundane version, though: matching brown hair and eyes.
- Destructive Savior: Madoka consciously does her best to avoid being one. It doesn't always work...
- Determinator: Not just with fighting robots, but in general.
- Embarrassing Tattoo: Her Vox mark is located right on her buttcheek. Yoko has no qualms scrutinizing the area at length.
- Establishing Character Moment: The very first line of the series is also this for Madoka, set to a heartwarmingly beautiful ocean sunrise:"Today I pray for the happiness of everybody."
- Even the Girls Want Her
- Expressive Hair: In Episode 19, reacting to her attempts to study.
- Extracurricular Enthusiast: Her defining quirks. Her club is "Jersey Club", which primary activity is being involved in every other extracurriculars, where needed.
- Falling into the Cockpit: Originally pilots her Vox without having any idea how to really use it.
- Famed In-Story: By Season 2, everyone knows of her exploits in defense of Kamogawa. Some (female) patrons in Hiroshi's beachside restaurant even blush when they see her. This also applies to Kirius and friends to some degree. At the end of the series she even receives a call from the Secretary-General of the United Nations.
- Fashionable Asymmetry: When wearing her jersey (i.e. pretty much all the time), Madoka has the right leg and left sleeve rolled up.
- First Name Ultimatum: Madoka doesn't like it that her uncle is drinking in daylight, especially with a complete stranger."HIROSHI!"
- "Freaky Friday" Flip: With Yurikano in Season 2.
- Genki Girl
- The Glomp: An extremely justified example- at the beginning of Episode 13 when she sees Lan for the first time in almost a year, Madoko's enthusiastic greeting knocks her off her feet and causes Color Failure. In Episode 14, she manages to catch Lan and Muginami simultaneously with a double-glomp that knocks both of them to the floor.
- Hard Head: While piloting, Madoka hits her forehead against Aura's controls. It does little more than give her a small bruise.
- The Heroine
- Heroes Prefer Swords: In Episode 6, when the Vox units receive actual weaponry, Madoka ends up with a sword.
- Heroic B.S.O.D.: In Episode 11 when Yoko is crushed by a fallen mecha. Nearly ends the world.
- I Call It "Vera": Madoka calls Vox Aura "Midorin" due to its green color scheme. The English equivalent would be calling it "Greenie".
- Improvised Weapon: A practitioner of the technique.
- Jumped at the Call: As long as it helps her friend, Madoka doesn't mind piloting a robot for the first time in her life to defeat alien forces. Which is pretty refreshing compared to other mecha heroes.
- She briefly gets upset when she has to pilot again at the start of Season 2, but she quickly gets over it.
- The Kirk
- Nice Girl: Unconditionally kind to everyone and anyone. Then again, one has to wonder if she really has any other friends aside from Lan and Muginami (which is confirmed in Episode 10).
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Activating the Rinne the first time was obviously a very bad thing. And when she does it again, the world basically ends up in the crapper. She doesn't intend to, but it still qualifies.
- No Social Skills: She seems to have absolutely no tact at all. If she wants to ask someone a question, she barges straight into wherever they are and immediately starts grilling them. Even if that someone is the head of a galactic empire in the middle of a peace talk. She also appears to have no clue that someone might be trying to deceive her or pick up on Dizelmine's rather blatant brush off of a question she asks him.
- Ordinary High-School Student
- Missing Mom: It's established her mother drowned ten years ago when she tried to rescue someone. Episode 24 reveals that in her desperation to see her mother, Madoka tried to head out to sea, only to nearly drown were it not for Vox Aura's appearance, which to her is a sign from her mother telling her to live on.
- Nephewism: Lives with her uncle.
- Panty Shot: In the first episode, when her cousin, Yoko, forcfully drops Madoka's pants to check for a Vox tattoo on her butt.
- Percussive Maintenance: In Season 2, she reactivates Aura by hitting it. It's implied that it only activated that way because she wanted to, rather than because it was necessary.
- Plucky Girl
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives one to both Dizelmine and Villaguilo in Season 2 after punching them in the gut.
- Schoolgirl Lesbian
- Tender Tears: At the end of Season 1, the otherwise energetic, cheerful Madoka struggles to complete her Character Tic through tears before breaking down crying after she sees Lan off, leaving her all alone (with Muginami having already left earlier).
- 10-Minute Retirement: Astelia bans her from piloting in Episode 8 due to the possibility of causing The End of the World as We Know It. At the end of Season 1 Vox Aura stops working completely. Neither lasts.
- Verbal Tic: Madoka always says "maru", which means "Tick", "Circle" or "Perfect" in English. (So named because "O" is right and "X" is wrong in Japanese game shows) Which may also be a pun on her name, which can also mean circle.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: Madoka does, albeit for sleepwear.
- Wrestler in All of Us: Her solution to a robot menace?
- Suplex Finisher: Defeat it using a German Suplex. Fabulous.
- Enemy is nearly four times your size? Give it a triple suplex with your friends.
- Your buddies are fighting? Give them both lariats!
- Suplex Finisher: Defeat it using a German Suplex. Fabulous.
Laffinty Fin E Ld Si/"Lan"
- Catch-Phrase: "Wan", which sounds similar to her nickname, and is the Japanese onomatopoeia for "Woof!". Turns out that Astelia lied to her and told her it was an Earth greeting.
- Character Tic: She also does a Faux Paw.
- Cute Clumsy Girl: Hilariously, this makes her a popular waitress at Hiroshi's shop.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: She eventually warms up to Madoka as they become friends.
- Emotionless Girl: Subverted. She seems this way when she was first introduced, but by the time Episode 3 rolls around it's pretty clear she's anything but.
- Fish out of Water
- Flower in Her Hair
- Green-Eyed Monster: For Madoka and Muginami in Episode 4.
- I Call It "Vera": She names her Vox "Orca".
- The Klutz: Seen in her attempts to outdo Muginami in connecting with Madoka.
- Leotard of Power: She's required to wear it during missions.
- Luminescent Blush
- Mind Rape: Undergoes this at the start of Season 2 (For Science!), and it would have caused permanent damage but for Villagiulio's attack on the station she was on. The worst part is that it's implied she was willing... despite the obvious pain it was causing her.
- Morph Weapon: Vox Rympha receives a cross between a sword and a machine gun later in the series.
- New Transfer Student
- Overly Long Name: Fin E Ld Si Laffinty.
- Purple Eyes: Hinting her status as princess of Le Garite.
- The Quiet One
- Rei Ayanami Expy: Blue-haired, pale-skinned alien Humongous Mecha pilot with a stoic demeanor that makes her come across as emotionless at first. She's a variation in that her stoic facade is much more easy to crack than most examples and she defrosts notably quickly.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something
- Sheltered Aristocrat: Due to her luxurious upbringing as princess of the planet Le Garite, Lan has few understanding of the commoners' lifestyle.
- She's Got Legs
- Shy Blue-Haired Girl
- Some Call Me "Tim": She prefers to be called simply "Lan" instead of her Overly Long Name.
- The Spock
- Spoiled Sweet
- The Stoic
- Sugar and Ice Personality: She comes across as cold and distant, but it's made clear she's a kind person who really cares about Madoka.
- Superhero Packing Heat: Became this in Episode 6 upon receiving a BFG for her Vox.
- Took a Level in Cheerfulness: Starts off as seemingly emotionless, but soon becomes more emotive and outgoing.
- Tsurime Eyes
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair
- Badass Cape: A later upgrade to her Vox Ignis come Season 2.
- Because You Were Nice to Me: Part of the reason she respects Villagiulio. Also inverted, since they first met when she gave him part of her apple which was barely anything more than the core, and the only food she had.
- Big Brother Worship: For Villagiulio, to the point where she voluntarily brands herself with a Memoria mark, even though they are Not Blood Related. Of course, considering that he was probably the only friend she ever had prior to meeting Madoka and Lan...
- Caped Mecha: Ignis becomes this in Season 2, using an energy cape as a shield.
- Catch-Phrase: "Kashikomari" ("Roger that!")
- Character Tic: Her salute.
- The Ditz: For example, when the teacher introduces her to Madoka's class, she keeps repeating "I'm Muginami!"
- Double Weapon: Receives a double bladed sword as her Vox weapon, formed out of a pair of energy guns.
- Expy: A blatant one in appearance, name-similarity and personality to Tsumugi "Mugi" Kotobuki, with the already impressive rack exaggerated to Gag Boobs level.
- Gainaxing: The main source of it on the show!
- I Call It "Vera": She nicknames Vox Ignis "Fuupo", which in certain Chinese dialects means "amber".
- Irony: She promised to get revenge for Lan during the baseball game. Come Episode 6..."You haven't considered my feelings one bit! No one asked you to get my revenge!"
- Muginami was trying to get Lan to warm up to her by being warm and playful. Madoka was trying to kill Muginami's most important person. Bit of a difference.
- Living with the Villain: Muginami wants to have this relationship with Madoka and Lan. Subverted when she joins them for good.
- The Load: Subverted. It's likely that Villagiulio only called her this because he doesn't want her to suffer the way he did.
- The McCoy
- New Transfer Student
- Obfuscating Stupidity
- Only One Name
- Pretty in Mink: Wears some kind of fluffy fur coat over a corset of sorts.
- Rapunzel Hair
- Replacement Goldfish: Suspected, but averted. When Yurikano and her past begin to be revealed (and then the person actually comes back from the dead... sort of), Muginami worries that she may be but a replacement in Villagiulio's eyes. He ultimately tells her that she is unique, and he would be her big brother as long as he lives.
- Stepford Smiler: Despite her cheerfulness, she hides quite a sad side to her. Even when she's on the receiving end of Villagiulio's "The Reason You Suck" Speech, she's still smiling.
- Tareme Eyes
- Vapor Wear: If Episode 7 is any indicator, she apparently doesn't wear a bra.
Residents of Kamogawa
- Aloof Big Sister: Acts like one to Madoka, although they're cousins.
- Cool Big Sis: To Madoka, whenever she's free to express her feelings.
- Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: She does this verbally to Madoka.
- Good Old Fisticuffs: How she stops Moid's gloating and apprehends him. Mostly offscreen, unfortunately.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While she is fairly irritable and a bit physically assertive, she's well-meaning and doesn't let petty things get in the way if Madoka truly wants to pilot the Vox.
- Oblivious to Love: Apparently has no idea that her assistant is interested in her.
- Out of Focus: Throughout Season 2.
- Parental Substitute: Served as this to Madoka after her mother died, and taught her an astonishing amount of her "jersey spirit". It's quite the surprising change to see her with the front ponytail and jersey when contrasted with her brash and mellow personality.
- Scars Are Forever: The collapsed mecha leaves a big one.
- Walking the Earth: Joins Astelia at the end of the series in researching an anomaly in Bermuda related to the Rin-ne.
- Badass Longcoat: Parodied then subverted, he gets into a fight with Villagiulio over one but loses. They settle the argument by getting sauced on the beach.
- Cool Old Guy
- Fun with Acronyms: His shop, ''Be With Hiroshi" (BWH).
- Manly Tears: During Kirius and Array farewell party, he is unexpectedly the first to break down in tears.
- Nice Guy: He takes Madoka in after her mother dies, offers the other members of the Jersey Club jobs and a room about half way through the first season, opens a new cafe down on the beach and hires the first season villains to run it because they needed a chance, makes the Jersey Club's lunches when they leave for an extended trips, and is tore up when Kirius and Array decide to leave for home. We all want this guy to be our Uncle.
- Boyish Short Hair
- Hot Teacher: It occasionally shows, mainly when she's wearing her personal swimsuit.

Voiced by: Yuuichi Iguchi (Japanese) and J.C. Miller (English)Yoko's assistant.
- Alliterative Name
- Mentor Ship: Subtly implied to have some feelings for his superior.
- Number Two: To Yoko.
Sachi Nogami & Michi Kondo
''Voiced by: Rikako Yamaguichi (Sachi), Suzuko Mimori (Michi) (Japanese) and Cristina Vee (Sachi) and Christine Marie Cabanos (Michi)Madoka's two classmates
Voiced by: Makoto Yasumura (Japanese) and Patrick Seitz (English)Commander of the Pharos, a research facility run by Novumundos. Rather put upon.
- Dude, Where's My Respect?: No one takes him seriously. Even his subordinates. Should have seen through Moid's treachery...
- Mission Control
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Rarely loses his cool. He might take seriously wrong steps in response to the situation, but only because it's not possible for him to see the bigger picture.
Astelia Lizamarie de Rochefort/Queen Maycun
- The Atoner: She's the one inadvertently responsible for the disaster 20,000 years ago, and is now finding ways to at least repair some of the damage she has unwittingly caused under Balance T. Moid's warping influence.
- Covert Pervert: Really seems to be a well-composed and elegant young lady... then starts groping Madoka with relative consistency. Gropey-ojou indeed.
- She even embarrasses Madoka with naughty comments. For Science!
- Elegant Gothic Lolita: It's even in the title of the episode she first appears in.
- Fiction 500: Novomundos is powerful enough that she can force the President of the United States into compliance by threatening to have him replaced.
- Flashback Echo: Gets this when viewing an ancient stone tablet about the Vox because it's about herself.
- Guile Heroine
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold
- Hime Cut: The perfect hairstyle for an Ojou who wears an Elegant Gothic Lolita dress and was a queen in the past.
- Immortality: Hinted to be of a conditional version.
- Innocent Blue Eyes
- Overly Long Name
- Parasol of Prettiness
- Plot Relevant Age Down: In backstory.
- Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes past her waist.
- Really 700 Years Old: She looks like a little girl, but she's over 20,000 years old.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Presumably was this 20,000 years ago as Queen Maycun.
- Tareme Eyes
- Walking the Earth: At the end of the series.
- Wise Beyond Her Years: Subverted, she's Really 700 Years Old.
Villagiulio De Metrio Lu(adopted) and Yurikano (true-blooded), and the former crown prince of De Metrio turned leader of outlaw organization "Kiss". For some reason or another is quite into capturing the Vox units. By the time Season 2 starts, he returned to his home world and ascended as king. He pilots the Ovus Avarium, a heavy-duty mecha armed with a pair of anchors stored in each arm, a pair of large swords, and a large mortar gun.
- Affably Evil: The guy doesn't seem like that bad of a person, even if he's somewhat gruff and unkempt. Even that one Kick the Dog moment towards Muginami with a "The Reason You Suck" Speech appears to be his way of dissuading her from following his footsteps.
- Aloof Big Brother: To Muginami.
- Badass Beard
- Badass Longcoat: Parodied — he gets into a fight with Hiroshi over one. He won and wears it from that point onward.
- Big Bad: Sort of, for Season 1.
- Heel–Face Turn: Not that he was much of a villain to begin with.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold
- Noble Fugitive: He's a deposed prince. Subverted in Season 2, where he takes the throne of De Metrio. Then at the very end he formally abdicates to spend more time with Dizelmine and help mend their broken friendship.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Has some shades of this in Season 1, but becomes more overt in Season 2. In particular, he's more levelheaded such as when Muginami goes off to see Madoka without informing De Metrio's forces and does everything he can to honor the agreements his made despite Dizelmine's plans otherwise.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something
- Shoo the Dog: His "The Reason You Suck" Speech to Muginami is most likely driven by this.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: He used to be nothing like what he has become as of the present. He was in the exact same position as Muginami — poor, starving, and gentle.
- Villains Out Shopping: The first we see much of him for more than a second, he's in a well-mannered bout with Hiroshi over a fur coat, which he eventually buys.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: Had this relationship with Dizelmine.
Izo Sofiro Karia LosHot-Blooded, rebellious but caring member of the trio from De Metrio's forces who have made an alliance with Kiss. He pilots the Ovus Voluntas, a close-range machine using a pair of heat clubs and a force field for defense.
- Fiery Redhead
- Dual Wielding: The Voluntas' twin heat clubs.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has one on his left brow. He got that during a fencing match with Yurikano at the beginning of Dawn of Memoria.
- Heel–Face Turn
- Hero of Another Story: He's the protagonist of the Prequel manga Dawn of Memoria.
- I Choose to Stay: Decides to remain on Earth for good, and further pursue his aspirations as a chef. Possibly subverted later since he's seen at Lan's Awesome Moment of Crowning.
- P.O.V. Boy, Poster Girl: Initially the P.O.V. boy to Yurikano's poster girl during Dawn of Memoria. He later becomes the main character in the story after Yurikano dies.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Kirius' blue.
- Stay with the Aliens: From his perspective.
- Supporting Protagonist: Of the Dawn of Memoria manga, where much of the story is told from his perspective.
- Team Chef: His job when he begins working on Earth.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: Watches a samurai movie, then tries to challenge Madoka on a duel repeating what he saw, never realizing that he accidentally fooled the entire school into thinking that he's her boyfriend.
Kirius Racus Lestine Ha
- Chick Magnet: As his part-time job as waiter at Hiroshi's beach house can attest to.
- The Comically Serious
- Dual Wielding: Has a pair of heat swords as part of the Libertas' arsenal.
- Fish out of Water: He largely misunderstands Earth culture... and thinks Madoka's poor piloting decisions are standard Earth techniques.
- Heel–Face Turn
- I Meant to Do That: Sure Kirius, your sword attacks failed to finish off Vox Aura due to them being nonlethal techniques.
- Impoverished Patrician: He is the head of a noble family that's fallen on hard times.
- Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Keeps a really long hair tied into a ponytail.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Izo's red.
- Simple Staff: One of the Libertas' weapons.
- Stay with the Aliens: From his perspective.
- The Stoic: Though he occasionally lapses into a Large Ham.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome
- Whip It Good: The Libertas' heat blades can turn into this.
Array Danon Ci
- Attractive Bent-Gender: He passes off as a girl so easily it's a genuine surprise when he turns out to have been the maid the whole time. In Episode 9, some guy even starts flirting with him even after being told he was a guy. Season 2 continues this well-founded tradition of confusing him for a girl.
- Dragged into Drag: Somehow, the poor guy wound up as a maid, complete with female maid outfit. Despite this, he doesn't take it off after that episode, and he seems to almost like the outfit.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: As much of a competent pilot he is, you should'nt forget the fact that he enjoys wearing a maid outfit.
- Dude Looks Like a Lady
- Fetish: Maid outfits. Guess what he wears most of the time...
- Heel–Face Turn
- Meido: Becomes Astelia's maid.
- New Meat: A source of initial tension between him and Yurikano during the former's cadet days in Dawn of Memoria is that Array is too eager to prove that he can already fly an Ovid by himself.
- Shoulder Cannons: Wields a pair of them as part of the Teneritas' arsenal.
- Stay with the Aliens: From his perspective.
- Wholesome Crossdresser: He never took that maid outfit off. Not even when Season 2 begins. During a jaunt at a haunted house, he even wore a Japanese Cute Ghost Girl costume.
Yurikano De Metrio Lu
- Ace Pilot: Apparently, she was one before her Heroic Sacrifice. When her soul is brought back to the world, she says her skills have apparently dulled somewhat... but she's still damn good.
- All There in the Manual: Dawn of Memoria, a Prequel manga with an initial focus on Yurikano, actually began serialization before the anime aired. This makes her appearances in Season 1 somewhat less confusing for Japanese viewers who were reading the manga.
- Apocalypse Maiden
- Back from the Dead: A Double Subversion. It's just a matter of a well-timed "Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!" moment in the Rin-ne to bring her soul back to the body. Unfortunately, the method used has a rather nasty side-effect. She disappears once more... only to return for good at the end of the series, after Madoka and friends convinced her to stay in the material world with Dizelmine.
- Barrier Maiden: Her presence in Rin-ne allows her to intervene when Madoka tries to use the full power of Vox Aura.
- Chekhov's Gunman: Name dropped in Season 1, and later on has two brief appearances before her increased role in Season 2.
- Disappears into Light: Even after her revival, she vanishes completely. She tries to disappear again in the finale, so she could stay with Dizelmine in the Rin-ne. Madoka convinces them to return to the realm of the living.
- Empty Shell: In season 2, someone with her exact likeness appears, but she doesn't seem to be her. It's suspected that that girl is just a clone. It's really the body.
- "Freaky Friday" Flip: With Madoka.
- Genki Girl: During her happier days at the Dawn of Memoria manga.
- Heroic Sacrifice: To stop the war between Le Garite and De Metrio, she traps her own soul inside the Rin-ne. Forever. She's nonplussed to find out that somebody is capable of accessing Rin-ne through Vox Aura.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Subverted. Her memory is not "lost" — her soul is not there to begin with due to being trapped in the Rin-ne.
- Perfectly Arranged Marriage: With Dizelmine, which was ultimately cancelled.
- Poor Communication Kills: Madoka accuses her of not explaining the reasons behind her Heroic Sacrifice.
- Posthumous Character: She's already dead via Heroic Sacrifice before the beginning of the series. All Polyhedron characters except Grania has a fond memory of her. Then someone with her exact likeness appears. Then it's revealed that it's really her body, without her soul. And then her soul is brought back to Madoka's body. So she's not virtually-dead anymore. And then she Disappears into Light so she's virtually-dead again. And then she comes back for real at the end.
- P.O.V. Boy, Poster Girl: The poster girl to Izo's P.O.V. boy during Dawn of Memoria.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Izo, Kirius and Array are equally surprised to learn that she is their student-instructor during their academy days in Dawn of Memoria.
- Something Only They Would Say: When the De Metrio trio encounters her in Madoka's body, they ask her to do this to prove her identity. When she later speaks to Villaguilio, she becomes Genre Savvy and does this trope without prompting.
- Tsundere: Type B towards Dizelmine.
- You Are Worth Hell: Defied! She want to stay in the Rin-ne with the comatose Dizelmine to atone for the extreme damage they caused to the worlds, but Madoka and friends bring them back to the materium.
- Dark-Skinned Blond
- "Do It Yourself" Theme Tune: Sings both openings.
- The Dragon: Though she sometimes disagrees with her boss.
- Only Sane Man: She certainly feels this way.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: After Villagiulio is incapacitated and Dizelmine clearly loses his mind, she immediately arrange a ceasefire with Le Garite. It's not worth winning the battle if a cosmic cataclysm is just on their doorsteps.
- Subordinate Excuse: Has a pretty obvious crush on Villagiulio, which he prefers to ignore.
Dizelmine Fin E Ld Si
- Accidental Public Confession: Confesses his love to Yurikano when he thinks that Madoka is still inhabiting her body.
- Affably Evil
- Aloof Big Brother
- Anti-Villain: Of the Well-Intentioned Extremist variant. More than willing to make other peoples' lives a living hell so long as that means his own citizens are safe.
- The Atoner: According to Astelia, his Plot-Relevant Age Down at the end of the series carries the implication that he may have wished to turn back time so he can set right every wrong he made — the same wish Astelia herself made that turned her into what she is today.
- Disc-One Final Boss: In Season 2. Subverted in the end.
- Heel–Face Revolving Door: Though he ultimately ends up a Face for good after Madoka and friends remind him of his better days.
- I Have Your Wife: More like sister, which he subtly uses to gain some leverage on Villaguilio. Technically though, it's more like fiancee.
- Laughing Mad: In Episode 22.
- Older Than He Looks: Returns from Rinne as a young boy, not unlike Queen Maycun. He ends up looking younger than Lan!
- Plot-Relevant Age Down: At the end of the series.
- Psychotic Smirk: Sports one in Episodes 6 and 10 of Season 2.
- Purple Eyes: Hinting his status as king of Le Garite, one of the most powerful persons in this setting.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something
- The Stoic: Much like his sister.
- Not So Stoic: Until Episode 6 of Season 2.
- Perfectly Arranged Marriage: With Yurikano, until it got cancelled.
- Unwitting Pawn: Everything he has done, no matter how well-intentioned, ultimately fell right into Moid's schemes.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: Had this relationship with Villaguilio.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: With heavy emphasis on "Extremist". Mind Raping his own sister is but one of the many ways he's more than willing to use in the name of Le Garite.
- We Used to Be Friends: With Villaguilio.
- With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Piloting Magoltul is not conductive to his mental health.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair
Balance T. Moid
Voiced by: Kazuyuki Okitsu (Japanese) and Vic Mignogna (English)Dizelmine's Mad Scientist companion and advisor.
- Based on a Great Big Lie: His story about the Vox machines being weapons of mass destruction.
- Be Careful What You Wish For: He badly wants to discover what's inside the Rin-ne, even if that causes an apocalypse? Guess what, he got his wish... right after it accepted Madoka's marching song (which he deems dreadful) as its voice.
- Big Bad
- Disappears into Light: At the end of the series. Given that this is what happened to Yurikano, it's possible that he may have finally entered Rin-ne after all.
- Double Agent: Tends to switch allegiances between Le Garite/Novumundos/the Jersey Club trio and De Metrio on a whim. Ultimately subverted, as he's only in it For Science!
- Eyes Always Shut
- Even when he's yelling at Tadokoro because he wants to watch the Flowers.
- It's even joked about in the Omake for volume 4. Apparently, while Moid would be quite handsome with his eyes open, it would also herald the End of the world. Of course, this is most likely Dizelmine having a joke at Lan's expense.
- He finally opens his eyes in the finale. Right before he Disappears into Light.
- For Science!: More than willing to manipulate anyone just to discover what's inside the Rin-ne, even if it caused Queen Maycun to accidentally destroy the world.
- Jabba Table Manners: We already know there's something off about him, and in the light-hearted Episode 7 we let our guard down for a second when we see that he ordered a pudding and ice cream platter more beffitting a teenage girl than a man of his age (at least 20,000 years old, as he turned out to be)... And then for the first time in the show he becomes genuinely creepy as he mashes the ice cream and pudding into a revolting slurry-like porridge and then consumes it, much to Shozo's horror.
- He does it again in the Season 2 finale, still as revolting.
- Laser-Guided Karma: The series is averse to showing onscreen death, so he just Disappears into Light in the finale, most likely being snatched away into the Rin-ne.
- Manipulative Bastard: He's the one who maneuvered Queen Maycun into unleashing the disaster.
- Non-Action Big Bad
- Perpetual Smiler
- Psychotic Smirk
- Really 700 Years Old: He's over 20,000 years old.
- Shirtless Scene: Doubles as a Fan Disservice, because when it happens it's revealed that the entirety of his torso is tattooed with faux-Memorias. Being in the throes of madness doesn't help.
- The Stoic: Always seen with either a neutral expression or that creepy grin until Episode 12.
- Sweet Tooth
- Treacherous Advisor: 20,000 years' worth of treachery under Maycun and Dizelmine's noses. Sauron would have been proud.
- Villain: Exit, Stage Left!: He tried.
- Villainous Breakdown: In the end, he's visibly angry that Madoka ends up being the voice of the Rin-ne. He quickly gets over it, resolving to start anew... and then promptly Disappears into Light.
