** Hibiki is a female take on the StockLightNovelHero. A natural GeniusBruiser who found nothing at all challenging in her homeworld, Hibiki nevertheless remains essentially ThePaladin even after being brought to this world. Noble, courageous and skilled, Hibiki seeks to enact social change for the better gradually through progressive reform. Her party is very conventional being a DamagerHealerTank combination of a WhiteMagicianGirl, a BlackMage, a StoneWall fighter and a LightningBruiser warrior. A member of the Limian royal family secretly fights within Hibiki's party out of love for her.
** Tomoki is a {{deconstruction}} of the StockLightNovelHero. He is chosen solely for his good looks. He lacks any special skills and has been bullied heavily throughout his life. Unlike Hibiki who was transferred "as is", Tomoki was radically transfigured by the Goddess into a blonde, older form. A DirtyCoward who ran away the moment his life was even at the slight hint of danger, Tomoki rapidly slides into evil under the machinations of his party members.

her. Hibiki fights as part of the vanguard in her party but is versatile enough to drop into any role that is required in battle.
** Tomoki is a {{deconstruction}} of the StockLightNovelHero. He is chosen solely for his good looks. He lacks any special skills and has been bullied heavily throughout his life. Unlike Hibiki who was transferred "as is", Tomoki was radically transfigured by the Goddess into a blonde, older form. A DirtyCoward who ran away the moment his life was even at the slight hint of danger, Tomoki rapidly slides into evil under the machinations of his party members. Tomoki basically seeks to use his charm powers to rule Gritonia as his personal harem and treasury without any heed for the welfare of the people. Tomoki's party consists mainly of people with rare and unconventional classes. Aside from an Imperial Guardsman to serve as a tank, the rest of his party are a GadgeteerGenius who fights using golems and a Dragon Summoner. The member of the royal family in Tomoki's party is openly affiliated with it but does not fight on the front lines serving as TheStrategist and logistician. Tomoki in battle is basically a one trick pony, blasting the enemy with high level firepower.
** Makoto is functionally a HeroicNeutral more interested in cooperation and harmony between the various races. In chapters set in the Lorel Union, we learn that many other Japanese Otherworlders also held similar beliefs. This implies that Makoto acts more in accordance to how most Japanese would act as opposed to the heroism of Hibiki or the hedonism of Tomoki.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foil}}: Hibiki, the Heroine of Limia and Tomoki, the Hero of Gritonia are a study in contrasts. Both in turn emphasize the traits of Makoto, chosen by Tsukiyomi and those chose by the Goddess.

** Tsukuyomi also qualifies because it's revealed later in the story that he was helping literally '''''every other Deity''''' on Earth with their duties, and now that he's out of commission by sending Makoto to The Bug's world all the other God's are struggling to do their ''own'' jobs, despite, you know, '''only having their own duties to do''' and not, what is likely, about 100 or so at once like Tsukuyomi had to.

* MeditationPowerup: A more permanent variant than normal for this trope. By using the meditation technique he was taught for Zen Archery, Makato is able to increase his already ridiculous amount of power past 'multiple demon lords' to 'just shy of a god'. Each time he does it he also causes Aurora to grow and warp to become more like Japan. Allowing the growth of Japanese foods. He didn't even realize he was doing it until his companions caught him in the act. It is hinted that [[spoiler:his growth was exponential or geometrical]], which means a single additional meditation session would have easily [[spoiler:put him above the Goddess in terms of pure magical ability, which Tomoe and Mio were worried would result in her immediately attempting to kill him. Given that he's UnskilledButStrong, he would not have been able to fight her off at that time.]]

Mio wears a more feminine kimono and is a YamatoNadeshiko. Mio also attempts to be a good housewife by learning to cook meals for Makoto, though this is hampered by her ExtremeOmnivore nature making it hard to tell what other people can actually eat.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Of the typical StoryBreakerPower protagonist that isekai light novels use. ''Everyone'' who fully understands how strong Makoto is treats him as a living DoomsdayDevice, one that absolutely must be kept as far away from politics and taking sides in conflicts as possible, lest he start wiping entire civilizations out. Fortunately for the world, he's more interested in being a merchant... which he's decidedly less than talented at. We even get to see some AlternateTimelines where Makoto does start taking sides, [[spoiler:all of which have led to TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.]] Thus, a running theme through the story instead becomes about the consequences of giving teenagers ultimate power itself, rather than how they derail existing plot lines.

** Makoto. Level 1 adventurer in a universe where even small children are usually double digits or more. A clueless merchant running a small general store in a universe where the merchant guild system specifically is designed to prevent general stores from working. A somewhat ugly looking, spindly teenager wearing what amounts to noble clothes. And a PersonOfMassDestruction who can effortlessly destroy armies, countries, and the landscape around him on accident if he's not careful.
