A group of fourteen humans who have awakened the "Noah gene" in their bodies, activating a "memory" of the surviving group of humans during The Great Flood. This transformation gives them superhuman powers, as well as control over the Akumas and immunity to their blood. If one of them is killed, his/her memories are able to reincarnate in another human, making them virtually immortal. They are led by the Millennium Earl (who is at the same time Adam, the first of the Noah), and serve as the main antagonists of the series, opposing the Black Order and the Innocence. They call themselves the true apostles of God, for reasons unknown at the moment.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: While the color of their skin in their Noah forms tends to vary between grey and brown in the manga, they are portrayed consistently as gray in the first anime, while in Hallow, their skin color varies between gray and brown (this last one notably when they are in their intermediate form between human and Noah).
- Ambiguously Brown: The Noah's skin in their true form is colored between believably brownish and inhumanly greyish depending of the medium. The Earl is consistently gray, though.
- Back from the Dead: Zigzagged. If one of the Noah is killed, the human carrying the memories will die for good, but the Memory of the Noah will survive and reincarnate in another host that will replace to previous one. So far, only Skinn has been killed, but the Earl is expecting for the new host of the Wrath of Noah to awake at any moment.
- Color-Coded Characters: For some reason, following the Black Order Invasion arc, all of them except for the Earl (who keeps his previous clothing style), Mightra and Lulubell (who spends her next appearences transformed into animals), they are shown wearing some strange white outfits, probably to contrast with the black uniforms that the Exorcists wear. They seem to have dropped out this in the latest arcs, as they are shown in their civilian clothes, like they appeared in the earlier parts of the series.
- Enemy Civil War: The Noah secretly hate the Millennium Earl as he's "The Pillar" that destroyed their world thousands of years ago. They've been tormenting him for years.
- Facial Markings: Stigmata, with their number varying between member and member.
- Human Subspecies: They are humans who inherited the genes of Noah and his family, which turns them into periodic reincarnations of members of the ancient household.
- The Remnant: As implied by the name, Noah are remnants of humanity after they were destroyed by God. It's revealed that they are the survivors of the destruction of their entire world.
- Slasher Smile: They tend to sport wicked, demented grins when they are tormenting their enemies (especially when they do it in unpleasant ways, that tends to be more often than not). It must run in the family.
- Supernatural Gold Eyes: The all have yellow eyes, hinting their superhuman nature.
- Villains Out Shopping:
- When Tyki is invited over to the Millennium Earl's lair, he ends up having to help one of the Earl's favorites, Road Kamelot, with her homework.
- The Noah family in general would be a normal, happy family, enjoying family dinners and helping each other out when they need it, if not for the whole "wanting to destroy the world/kill God" thing.
- Tyki also has friends from before he awakened as a Noah. Whenever he's not being an evil henchman, odds are, he'll be with them. This was actually how he met Allen the first time.
The Earl of Millennium
Voiced by Junpei Takiguchi (JP), Yutaka Aoyama (JP, 2016 anime), Jason Liebrecht note & Todd Haberkorn note (EN), Antonio Villar (SP)
The main antagonist of the series, the Earl of Millennium (mostly known as the Millennium Earl to Western fans) doesn't look very dangerous due to his cartoonish appearance and cheerful attitude. However, looks are deceiving and this guy is responsible for the death of millions because of his Akuma.
He usually appears before a person grieving the loss of a loved one and politely offers to bring back the deceased back to life. If the offer is accepted, however, the Earl imprisons the soul in an ominous-looking black metal skeleton. The captured soul will then usually berate and curse the person who agreed to the deal...until the Earl completely takes control of the new Akuma and orders him/her to kill the other and wear their skin as a human disguise. Only Allen's cursed eye is able to see who's really an Akuma in a skin.
- Acrofatic: He is quite plump, yet it doesn't seem to impede him from happily levitating and hopping around. It's a disguise to mask his true slender physique.
- Affably Evil: He's basically a father figure to the Noah, is extremely polite and seems to forgive all of Allen´s actions because of the fact that he has the 14th´s memories. He also shows in the Destruction of the Order arc that he is perfectly capable of wiping out the hero faction if he chooses to, yet doesn't, although he has become a lot more active as of late.
- Archnemesis Dad: Since Mana is one half of the Earl, the current Earl who is only made of Mana, lacking his other half, is technically this to Allen.
- Attention Whore: In chapter 188, Road and Wisely are seen commenting on the Earl's need to always be the center of attention.
- Ax-Crazy: While the Earl is weird, when acting malicious, he comes across as this especially in his true form. In chapter 218, he goes Up to Eleven wit this as he is literally unable to keep a solid form.
- BFS: His main weapon of choice and one that looks exactly like Allen's, only with a different colour scheme.
- Big Bad Ensemble: One of the top villains in the series, but he's losing ground to the 14th and Apocryphos. In chapter 218, he's not even able to keep his composure once he meets Allen again.
- Bishōnen Line: His real form is much more conventionally pleasant to the eye than the way we normally see him, to say the least.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Always.
- Combat Breakdown: If someone gets him angry enough, he'll forego the mind games, the magic, and the weapons, in favor of beating them to death with his bare hands.
- Deal with the Devil: Those who accept his offer to "bring back a loved one" do not end well...
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Yeah, he might be utterly insane, but he's also a genuinely jolly old fellow who loves his family. His Person of Mass Destruction family, but his family nonetheless.
- Evil Sounds Deep: His voice in the first anime is lugubrious and deep, befitting his status as the main villain of the series. In Hallow, his new voice actor (Yutaka Aoyama) zigzags this, sounding high pitched and silly when the Earl is behaving erratically, then suddenly dropping his voice like a rock when the Earl gets serious.
- Expy: Although he's based on the historical Count of St. Germain as said below, his character is a reminiscence of Mad Pierrot from Cowboy Bebop. Plump, almost round body? Check. Top hat and frock coat? Check. An enormous toothy grin plastered on his face? Check. Graceful flying achieved through levitation? Check. Incredibly difficult to harm and carrying powerful weapons? Check. Mentally unstable and/or psychotically evil? Check.
- Exact Words: A minor example, the Earl says "I'm not fat" in what is assumed to be just his odd sense of humour to Tyki. Turns out he wasn't lying; the fat man look is just a bodysuit.
- A Father to His Men: He's a father figure to the Noah and he really cares for them.
- Fat Bastard: He is noticeably plump and is trying to destroy the world with killer machines created using human souls and dark matter. Greatly subverted with his true form, that it is instead slim, meaning that only the suit itself is fat.
- Friendly Enemy: His looks and demeanor transmit a sort of friendly, comedic light, but he is still the first Big Bad of the series and a thoroughly evil man.
- Gentleman Adventurer: Has some air to this, mainly for wearing Victorian clothes and having an eccentric personality.
- Historical Villain Upgrade: Hoshino stated he is based on a historical figure, but has not revealed exactly who. However, judging for her description of him as an immortal alchemist who spoke many languages and said prophecies, it seems that the good Earl is based on the legendary Count of St. Germain (their very names are a hint, as the Japanese translations for earl and count both use the same word, hakushaku). However, while the historic Count of St. Germain was never known as anything more than an adventurer and an artist, the Millennium Earl is an evil schemer who wants to destroy mankind.
- I'm Crying, but I Don't Know Why: Lulu Bell points out the Earl is crying after the White Ark is seemingly destroyed, which the Earl then is confused as to why he is crying.
- Immune to Bullets: Three shots to the face barely break skin.
- Implacable Man: He has yet to suffer an injury of any kind; even the fake version summoned by Jasdevi that fought Krory and Allen showed no signs of damage during the entire fight.
- Large and in Charge: Rules over the Noah and is a big dude. Although his vertical height can vary depending on the medium, he is consistently drawn as not short, and his top hat makes him look even taller.
- Luke, I Am Your Father: He's none other than Allen's adoptive father Mana... sort of.
- Meaningful Name: His real name, Adam, can't be just by chance.
- Monster Clown: With his caricaturesque physique, extravagant attire and makeup-looking grey skin, he somewhat evokes a classic circus clown. However, it doesn't hide that he is a powerful and cruel villain under the giggles.
- Nice Hat: Nice hats. Not easy to spot, but he wears a different one every time we see him.
- Nightmare Face: All of Chapter 218 seems to taking this Up to Eleven with this as he is literally is losing his ability to coherently think as well as maintain his shape.
- Nonstandard Character Design: Very unlike the rest of characters, he is drawn in cartoonish, almost grotesque proportions, implying from his very appearance that there is something deeply wrong with him. Still, it's not clear how much of it is an artistic resource for the viewer's sake and how much of an in-universe physical semblance, as close-ups to his face◊ show more humanlike features.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: His cartoonish appearance belies how powerful he really is.
- Omnicidal Maniac: He's at least jolly about it his behavior in chapter 218 suggest he's far more unstable than he previously appeared.
- Opaque Lenses: His pince-nez spectacles are opaque except in very close shots.
- Parasol Parachute: He tends to use his umbrella-like golem Lero as a way to move himself in the air. Of course, Lero being a magic being, he always stays afloat no matter how much time he spends mid-air.
- Perma-Stubble: When he's finally shown in human form.
- Perpetual Smiler: He has a static Cheshire Cat Grin even when he's angry, which looks shocking to say the least. Some chapters play with this trope as his face distorts into very bizarre shapes and more varied emotions, and he does open the mouth in the manga and Hallow, but the smile itself never vanes.
- Person of Mass Destruction: The first attack he was ever shown using completely leveled Edo. And he hadn't gotten serious yet.
- Please Keep Your Hat On: Under that hat, the Earl has horns when he's in his nonhuman form.
- Really 700 Years Old: He's been alive since before Noah's flood and for at least even thousand years and since his real name is 'Adam', may have been around a lot longer than that.
- Red Right Hand: Not that he needs it, but those hats are to cover up his horns.
- The Reveal: The Earl is actually both Mana and Nea, who were born after the past Earl, their former incarnation, disappeared.
- Satanic Archetype: Has very clear aspects of this. He's a ruler of demons who tricks people who mourn for their dead friends or relatives into making a Deal with the Devil to resurrect them, turning them into Akuma that he can then control.
- Say It with Hearts: In nearly every single one of his speech bubbles except in his more human-looking form.
- Slasher Smile: Although he's always smiling, his smile looks like this when he's mad.
- Soul Eating: He has the ability to devour souls. He appears to relish the taste.
- Stepford Smiler: It turns out in chapter 218, he has a lot of instability and hatred behind his jolly attitude. Although as of recent chapters, he shows much more emotions than he did previously particularly when it comes to the 14th.
- Technically a Smile: His face is frozen in an enormous, semi-perpetual toothy grin, but some details, like him barely moving his mouth when talking or eating, hint that it is actually a mask.
- Villainous Breakdown:
- Losing control of the White Ark and the Egg to the Exorcists is the first time his plans have suffered a major setback resulting in a terrifying Nightmare Face.
- In chapter 218, he LOSES it completely and for no reason other than meeting Allen again, convinced he's Nea. He doesn't just become upset, he literally goes insane and his form become even more monstrous than usual.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: His past revealed by a sudden flash of memory seems to suggest he has a lot more reason to hate Exorcists and Nea than simply Evil Is Petty.
- Your Head A-Splode: Did this to himself in the past to get rid of 'Mana'.

One of the first Noah we meet, who is perpetually surrounded by a cloud of butterflies. He is the Noah of Pleasure and originally lived as a homeless worker with his normal human friends while sometimes going back home to the Earl to do jobs (mainly killing people) because he thought it was fun. At the end of the Ark Arc, he was temporarily controlled by his Noah, which resulted in some new scars and long hair. Despite it being said that his Noah has 'awakened', the only significant change to his personality seems to be being very very cheerful around the hero.
- Affably Evil: Hey, he's a pretty polite guy for someone who's supporting the End of the World as We Know It.
- Author Appeal: The author admitted to creating him just because she wanted another really handsome guy to draw, and it shows.
- Ax-Crazy: What do expect from a guy who literally crushes your heart and uses Tease that eat people from the inside.
- Beat Still, My Heart: How he usually uses his Intangible Man powers.
- Beauty Mark: He has a mark underneath his left eye.
- Bishōnen: Very handsome and pretty, like the rest of the males of the series.
- Body Horror: He inflicted this on Allen, and his One-Winged Angel form has some aspects of this.
- Butterfly of Death and Rebirth: The Tease (Teez? Teaz? Tese?) he carries around with him.
- Cool Big Sis: He´s like one to Road.
- Evil Feels Good: Shown to enjoy his 'black' side.
- Friendly Enemy: Ehhh, kinda. He took an interest in Allen after he learned that the kid had survived their first encounter, which eventually grew into genuine respect and fondness to the point he (along with Road) rescued Allen from a sentient Innocence. It's very one-sided, however.
- Hero Killer: For the moment, he's the Noah with the highest body count of all the series. He so far has killed general Yeegar, Daisya Barry, Suman Dark and his two partners and Klaud's team. He also was on the verge to kill Allen too.
- Intangible Man: Tyki's special power as a Noah allows him to manipulate all matter of this world, though that is usually used to make him able to phase through things at will. The extreme of this ability allows him to even create vacuums by rejecting the oxygen and ambient air pressure around his enemies.
- Like Brother and Sister: All the Noah are family, but Tyki and Road in particular seem to treat each other like actual siblings (although, being The Tease, he has mock-flirted with her at least once) and seem to hang out on and off the job more than the others.
- Mr. Fanservice: Hey, the author herself wanted to make another handsome guy, so she made him.
- Nightmare Face: Holy mother of god◊, get me the fuck away from this guy.
- One-Winged Angel: His true form is a scary one.
- Painted-On Pants: In his Noah outfit.
- Punch-Clock Villain: Literally. When he's not on business for the Earl he works in a Portuguese mine together with a friend and an orphan. He's also a pretty good guy when he's not angry.
- Scars Are Forever: He has massive scars across his chest from his fight with Allen in the Ark.
- Sharp-Dressed Man: And how!
- Significant Birth Date: His birthday revealed in Grey Log is on Christmas Day, same as Allen's. And considering the whole mystery with how Tyki looks like Nea, its likely to have some intentional meaning.
- Slasher Smile: The last thing you see before Tyki pulls your heart out without leaving a mark on your outer body is this.
- Smoking Is Cool: Almost every scene has him smoking a cigarette.
- Split Personality: Zigzagged, if not subverted. Tyki says he has both a "white" and a "black" side. The white one is his normal, human life whom he spends along with his human friends, while the black one is his Noah side. However, unlike most examples, Tyki is both aware of both personalities and he lives comfortably with both sides, exchanging both of them wherever he needs. Is mentioned however his white side was somewhat erased after the exorcism Allen performed on him failed and Joyd took control of him in the Noah's Ark, as he is having troubles adjusting to his new situation.
- Superpowered Evil Side: A really terrifying knight with insect-like tentacles.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He can also get pretty snarky.

The first Noah ever encountered by Allen, she has the appearance of a small girl with spiky black hair. However, she is called the oldest Noah by other members of the family, implying that she was the first to awaken as one. Road is the Noah of Dreams, allowing her to travel between dimensions and control the Ark. She was shown to have survived her whole body exploding into sand/dust in the Arc, and cannot be harmed by physical attacks unless they are inflicted from inside of her dreamworld or inflicted by Apocryphos.
- Affably Evil: She seems like a sweet girl around the Noah, who has a thing for lollipops and asks Tyki to help her with her homework... she also caused an Akuma to self-destruct just to anger Allen.
- Bokukko: She refers to herself with the boyish Japanese pronoun boku.
- The Bus Came Back: Returned in chapter 219, though in an energy sprite form that according to Wisely is the most she can muster at the moment, the aforementioned hit from Apocryphos having hurt her a LOT.
- Character Development: Interestingly, while she remains a Noah and averts Villain Decay, she seems to behave a little less sinister each time Allen meets her. She's gone from stabbing him in the eye the first time they met, to kissing him the second time, and now she's saved his life twice in the last few days because of her feelings for him. Her attraction to and concern for Allen appears to be the cause of her decreasingly antagonistic behavior, so it's likely she'd still be pretty scary if she was dealing with anyone but Allen. Of course proven when she attempts to Mind Rape Lavi.
- Creepy Doll: In chapters 187 and 188, Road is seen in the form of one of these.
- Cry Cute: Before she disappears for awhile after getting hit from Apocryphos, she gets teary and smiles as she tells Allen to keep walking onward.
- Daddy's Little Villain: Her relationship with the Millennium Earl is a perfect example of this trope.
- Dark Action Girl: She is powerful, though her fighting style is not physical and she prefers to destroy her victims mentally using her dreamworld.
- Deliberately Cute Child: She can fake being a cute little girl quite easily. Her human adoptive mother appears to be completely oblivious to Road's darker side. Then again, she's married to Sheril...
- The Dragon: Among the Noah, she seems to be the one closest to the Earl and the only one who knows his true goal, while the other members just go along with whatever the Earl tells them to do.
- Elegant Gothic Lolita
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She cares really deeply for her family. Also Allen, but then again, he is family.
- Even Evil Has Standards: She really didn't like the whole deal with Kanda's memories.
- Evil Is Petty: She once forces the Noah to make her homework for her. Surprisingly, the Earl complies voluntarily with comical motivation.
- Fanservice Pack: Compare Road's initial appearance to how she looks now. Slight difference, no? Rumour is that because Road's initial design led to so many questions from readers about whether she was male or female, Hoshino decided to make it more obvious. Lampshaded later on in one of Komui's Discussion Room Talks.
- Finger-Lickin' Evil: Technically, she was licking one of her candles, but the effect was there.
- For the Evulz: Why she's willing to create a door that would allowing the Exorcists trapped inside of the arc to escape, but the only way they can get to it is if they battle the Noah who are also inside of it. Really the only reason the others do it too. And she decided that messing with Allen would be more fun than others, that's why she chose him.
- Genki Girl: Albeit a rather creepy one.
- Little Miss Badass
- Mind Rape: What she does to Lavi while he is in her dreamworld. And also to Marshall Yeegar earlier in the series, also in her dreamworld. Heck, her dreamworld specialises in this.
- No Sense of Personal Space: She's all over Allen whenever she can possibly manage it.
- Older Than They Look: The only Noah besides the Earl not to be killed by the 14th 35 years ago, so we know she must at least be around that age at the minimum.
- Perky Goth
- Put on a Bus: Had been missing since she and Tyki bails Allen out of the Order, taking a hit from the Apocryphos in the process.
- Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Comments on how sweet Allen is for crying over a lost soul, and is later shown to be openly smitten with him. Of course, you can't really blame her.
- Slasher Smile: All members of the Noah family have sported one of these at some time or another, Road just does it more frequently.
- Villainous Crush: Interestingly, this seems to be a source of Character Development for her, since her crush on Allen makes her act nicer to him and help him out when he gets in a jam more than once.
- Villainous Rescue:
- When Allen was being consumed by Kanda's memories during his Journey to the Center of the Mind in chapter 192, Road stepped in and saved him for no apparent reason beyond affection.
- She also teamed up with Tyki to save Allen from being possessed by a sentient innocence...and even wound up Taking the Bullet (a rather painful-looking punch, in this case) for him!
Jasdevi (Jasdero and Devit)
Jasdero voiced by: Showtaro Morikubo (JP), Joel McDonald (EN), Álvaro Navarro (SP) | Devit voiced by: Mitsuki Saiga (JP), Z. Charles Bolton (EN), Juan Francisco Lamata (SP)
The Noah(s) of the Bonds, these twins have chased Cross Marian worldwide, getting more and more debt along the way. They're out to pass the debts on to Allen Walker. The twins' Noah ability is materialization, and shooting several different elements by mental will. If the two sing a song and shoot each other, they turn into their original form, Jasdevi. Krory fights them on the Ark.
- Beware the Silly Ones: Big time. For all that they're villains they are, in the end, just dorky teenagers. They let themselves be pressured into working off Cross' debt (which is already hilarious for the bad guys), adopt a chicken for no discernible reason, and shoot Allen with the balled up invoices to get him to pay for them before dissolving into tears. One of them even bites the handkerchief at one point. They spend most of their time being hilariously incompetent at just about everything but once they get into the fight they manage to make three fully capable exorcists plus an injured Lenalee and Chaozii look like complete idiots.
- Bishōnen: Devit from the beginning, Jasdero gets in on the fun when they return.
- The Bus Came Back: In chapter 187, they are revealed to have survived their battle with Krory.
- Cloudcuckoolander: One of the rare malicious variety and both of them are this, Jasdero far more so than Devit however. He carries a chicken around, for goodness's sake.
- Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: It's a rare case of one Cloudcuckoolander taking care of another one, somewhat. Devit is the twin with a firmer grip on reality and nudges his brother along and keeping him focued on occasion. That being said, he's pretty damn crazy himself.
- Creepy Twins
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Related to Beware the Silly Ones above. Hilariously incompetent and moronic in day to day life and probably one of the most dangerous Noahs of all once sufficiently angered.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: They definitely care about each other if no one else. Post bus ride they are more often than not seen holding hands or being generally very close to each other. One can only assume that almost dying made their bond even stronger.
- Fashionable Asymmetry: Devit's pants.
- Finishing Each Other's Sentences: When they're not speaking in unison they tend to do this.
- The Gunslinger: Before they actually get serious about fighting.
- He Cleans Up Nicely: Jasdero. Before the twins were Put on a Bus he looked...weird. Now he can give his brother a run for his money.
- The Hyena: Jasdero, hee-hee!
- Laughably Evil: Their sheer incompetence is really amusing, even for the Noah's standards (who are hilarious, in a very twisted way).
- Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Both of them have long hair when they appear again.
- Mouth Stitched Shut: Jasdero, though it doesn't stop him from speaking in any way.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: As they come off as ridiculous and annoying brats, Exorcists hardly think of them as a threat. After being told off too many times by them, Jasdevi finally snap and remind the cast and viewers alike that they're freakin' Noah.
- Painted-On Pants
- Prehensile Hair: When combined into one.
- Put on a Bus: They disappeared for a long time after Krory defeated them.
- Rapunzel Hair: Again, when combined. Also Jasdero after the aforementioned bus comes back.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Jasdero is the red to Devit's blue.
- Single-Minded Twins: An actual superpower of theirs.
- Speak in Unison: They speak simultaneously all the time.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Jasdebi/Jasdevi and Devito/Debito/David/Devit/Debitt. Word of God is that it's Devit for the latter. Presumably, based on that it will be Jasdevi for the former.
- Superpower Lottery: In theory, they may have the single most powerful ability in the series, being able to make anything they both think of at the same time come real. If they werent crazy Cloudcuckoolanders, they could use this to say, fill the entire room with lava or make their opponent's head explode.
- Tag Team Twins
- Those Two Guys: Always shown together.
- Twin Telepathy: Capable of this is necessary.

Skinn Bolic is the Noah of Wrath. He can turn into a giant golem who shoots lightning. He likes sweet things. He was a dock worker in New Orleans before his heritage surfaced. He also gets killed by Kanda during the Ark Arc.
- Ax-Crazy: Even for the standards of the rest of the Noah, he is very unstable and insane, mostly due how traumatic his awakening as a Noah was, as well as having the memory of Noah completely taking his personality.
- Berserk Button: He gets really annoyed if he eats anything that isn't sweet. Also, due representing the Wrath of Noah, he's the one who reacts the worse to the Innocence, entering in a berserker state if he's damaged enough by it.
- Blood Knight: Skinn loves to fight. A lot. This is the reason why he never attacked the Tiedoll's unit by himself, because he couldn't pick whom to fight first. He finally get his wish when he engages in a fight with Kanda in the Noah's Ark.
- Body Horror: Whenever Kanda attacked him it tore off huge chunks of his body and left him covered in huge gashes. By the end of his battle both of his arms and half of his torso is gone.
- The Brute: A pretty classic example. He's a mountain of muscles, is nasty, not very bright, loves to fight and is very powerful.
- Character Death: So far, he has been the only Noah to be killed in the series.
- Dirty Coward: Subverted. Kanda initially thought he was one all the times he attacked the Tiedoll's unit, as he sent the Akumas to do the dirty job while he was hiding away from the battlefield (not very succesfully, as Kanda spotted him several times during those figths), but during their battle in the Noah's Ark, Skinn reveals to him that the only reason why he didn't attacked them was because he couldn't decide whom to start fighting with between Kanda, Marie and Tiedoll.
- Disproportionate Retribution: An Akuma maid serves him something that it's not sweet? Skinn beats the hell out of her until he's satisfied.
- Dumb Muscle: Skinn is not the smartest fellow around. His fighting style is simply crush or electrocute the enemy without second thoughts and doesn't bothers to use complex strategies, just limiting himself to charge straight to his target.
- Establishing Character Moment: The first time he appears on screen, he beats brutally an Akuma maid just because the food she served wasn't sweet, introducing him as a very wrathful individual who loves sweet food.
- Evil Sounds Deep: Considering who voices him, this is expected. As such, Skin possesses a low, guttural voice.
- Killed Off for Real: Zigzagged in his case. Skinn as the human carrying the memory of the Wrath was killed in the Noah's Ark by Kanda, but the memory of the Noah Wrathra survived. The Earl is currently awaiting for the new host of Wrathra to awake, but, so far, nothing to the respect has happened, nor it has been hinted.
- Light Is Not Good: His true form is golden, and his lightning creates a lot of light, but, as a member of the Noah, he is an antagonist, and one of the most brutal ones of its members.
- Made of Iron: He survives several attacks from an exorcist who can cut a level 3.5 akuma in half!
- Mighty Glacier: In contrast to Kanda (who is both fast and strong), Skinn is very strong and can shoot devastating attacks, but he lacks the speed that his opponent has.
- Monochromatic Eyes: As a result from being overtaken by Wrathra, his eyes turned iris-less, thing that gives him a feral appearence. Curiously enough, when he enters in his One-Winged Angel form, he gains the Supernatural Gold Eyes that all of the Noah have.
- One-Winged Angel: His Wrath of God ability covers his body in a kind of golden armor with several curved spires emerging out of his body, making him bulkier and with the ability to manipulate lightning, as well as giving him regeneration.
- Psycho Electro: His Noah power consists in the manipulation of lightning, and he's a vicious brute who loves to fight and destroy his enemies.
- Sanity Slippage: His awakening as a Noah was so traumatic that his previous mild-mannered personality was changed by his current wrathful and brutal behaviour, being compeltely taken by the memory of Wrath. During the climax of his fight with Kanda, the little remain of sanity he has gets thrown in the trash as he becomes completely taken by his inner Noah in his last attempt to kill the Exorcist.
- Shock and Awe: In what his Noah powers consists.
- Small Role, Big Impact: He's killed in the Ark just after being fleshed-out, but his role serves to introduce the reincarnation of the memories of the Noah, that would be an important plot point later.
- Sweet Tooth: Explained in a flashback that when he first regained his memories, he started biting off his own fingers. Road and the Millennium Earl gave him candy to calm him down.
- Tears of Blood
- This Is Unforgivable!: His inner voice unrelentingly repeats this.
- Unstoppable Rage: He's the Noah of Wrath. Not that it stops Kanda from cutting through him like a piece of paper.
- Yellow Lightning, Blue Lightning: Since his abilities come from Dark Matter, his lightning attacks are portrayed as purple colored.

Lulu Bell is the Noah of Form (Noah of Lust is now known to be a mistranslation of the correct term) who led an attack on the Black Order H.Q. which caused the death of several people including Tup Dopp. Lulu Bell can transform into anything she wants to.
- Arc Villain: Two times if we count the anime. The first in a Filler Arc (who lasted from episodes 41-50) situated before the start of the Fallen One arc where she attacks Allen and her friends multiple times, and the second in the Black Order Invasion arc, where she attacks the European Brand of the Black Order along with a group of Level 3 Akumas and Skulls to retrieve the Akuma Egg that Cross stole from the Ark. In the latter, she's eventually forced to retreat before the eventual appearence of the true antagonist of the arc: the Level 4 Akuma.
- Adaptational Early Appearance: She's presented in the manga during the Black Order Invasion arc, when she serves as the Arc Villain (before being replaced by the Level 4 Akuma). In the anime, however, she appears in a Filler Arc way before the start of the Fallen One arc, many chapters before her proper introduction in the source material.
- Animal Motif: Cats. In the anime she appears many times transformed as one and when Wisely awakes and the Earl and the rest of the Noahs appear before him, she can be seen with the shape of a panther.
- Badass Longcoat: In contrast to her usual black suit attire, she sports the Black Order's Branch Chief white coat that she weared while impersonating the deceased Andrew Nansen during her attack at the Black Order's European headquarters.
- Captain Obvious: "Stop! If you damage the egg any further it will explode!" Well, yeah, that's kind of the purpose in case you hadn't noticed yet.
- Cats Are Mean: In the anime, she often appears as a black cat.
- Dark Action Girl: She's a skilled fighter able to stand the attack from the General Exorcists for a while. She however prefers to leave the dirty work to the Akumas before engaging herself in a fight (both in the anime and the manga).
- Dub Name Change: Is known as Lulubell in Spain.
- Elemental Shapeshifter: She is shown to be able to turn into a water humanoid to trap Miranda (who was holding the Noah's Ark gate from taking the Akuma Egg with her Innocence) and later take her as an hostage when she was being overpowered by the Generals. In this form she's inmune to an extent to powerful physical attacks thanks to her liquid body, and can materialize physical arms in order to attack her enemies.
- Emotionless Girl: In her normal form, her Noah one is more expressive.
- Everyone Looks Sexier If French: Lulu Bell awakened in the body of a French woman. Actually averted as she is the Noah of form, not Lust. And she doesn't do anything remotely sexy or seductive.
- Eyes Always Shut: Zigzagged. Noticeably, she always has her eyes closed while she is in her human form, but opens them in her Noah state.
- Kill and Replace: Does this to Andrew Nansen to infiltrate in the European headquarters of the Black Order in order to retrieve the Akuma Egg.
- Lady of War: She's calm and reserved, and her weapon is a more ladylike whip.
- Not So Stoic: While she is usually calm and calculating (especially compared to the rest of the Noahs), she totally loses her mind when the Egg is destroyed by Allen, to the point of even cursing him. She later shed tears of rage.
- During the Alma Karma arc, she is seen smiling viciously through the forehead of her dragon form while taunting Lenalee and her unit.
- Panthera Awesome: Going along with her cat motif, she, for some reason, appears with the shape of a big black panther when the Earl and the rest of the Noah appear to greet Wisely after his awakening.
- Pet the Dog: Her relationship with Mimi in the anime only.
- Power Dyes Your Hair: She goes from blonde to brunette when she assumes her Noah form.
- Shapeshifter Weapon: The whip she uses to fight while being in her normal form is created from her right hand.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: Her Noah power gives her the ability to be able to transform into anything she wants. The rangue of what she can transform into goes from turning into people, animals (including mythical beasts such as dragons), objects, inanimate elements such as water and some kind of spider-like monster.
- Whip It Good: She can transforms her arms into whips who can stab people.

Sherril is the Noah of Desire, and is Road's adopted father. He works as a government minister, and is very flamboyant. His ability is telekinesis.
- Ax-Crazy: He can become very violent and deranged in certain situations, most of them involving Road.
- Beware the Silly Ones: Don't be fooled by his silly antics, Sherril is actually as brutal as the rest of his kind, and when he's angry, he can be quite merciless. Just ask Lavi.
- The Chessmaster: In his debut chapter, he's shown to organize a mock assassination attempt on himself during a diplomat reunion in order to keep a war with another nation, thus ensuring more people will die and become Akuma for the Earl.
- Doting Parent: To Road. He got married just so he could adopt her.
- Evil Chancellor: As a trusted government minister, he's able to manipulate politics to help out the Noahs.
- Faux Affably Evil: At times, he may come as polite, but that attitude hides a mocking intent behind, and he quickly reverts to his usual sadistic persona.
- High-Class Glass: During his acting as a minister, he's seen wearing a monocle on his right eye, giving him an air of sophistication.
- Large Ham: Has several moments, normally related to Road.
- Last Episode, New Character: He actually appears in the last episode of the first anime. However, unlike in the manga, his appearance is so minor (he doesn't even gets to have any spoken lines) that it may be a cameo.
- Mask of Sanity: He publicly appears as a polite and professional politician, but under that facade, lies a depraved and sadistic individual infatuated with his adoptive daughter to disturbing extremes.
- Mind over Matter: This is revealed to be Sherril's power as a Noah.
- No Sense of Personal Space: He merrily gets too close to Tyki and Road (his daughter she's just playing the part and is Older Than She Looks, but still), and also holds poor Tokusa while he uses his Noah ability to attack him.
- Papa Wolf: To Road. When Road disappeared, he went straight to torturing Lavi to get info out of Bookman.
- People Puppets: In recent chapters, he's shown using his telekinesis on members of the Order in this manner.
- Sharp-Dressed Man: While exercising his role of a minister, he appears wearing formal clothes.
- Slasher Smile
- Spell My Name with an "S": As there's no official English spelling, fans vary between Sherril, Sheryl, Cyril, and plenty more. The latest fanbook (Gray Log) does note his name down being as 'Cheryl' though.
- Stepford Smiler: For the most part, Sherril is always smiling in more or less the same way, his genial smile and Slasher Smile being virtually identical. When his true nature is showing through, however, his eyes convey it quite clearly.
- Softspoken Sadist: Outright says to Allen to cooperate with them during the beginning of the Alma Karma arc otherwise he will torture the scientists present.
- Yandere: For Road, big time. He's so obssessed with her that any harm she receives sends him into a berserk rage. When Tyki tells him that Road dissappeared protecting Allen from Apocryphos, he absolutely loses it and brutally push Lavi against a wall, asking then Bookman about the relationship of the 14th Noah and Road with a psychotic look.

Wisely is the last of the original Apostles of Noah to awaken in the current generation. He is the Noah of Wisdom, and his ability as a Noah is his 'demon eye' which affects the brain.
- Cloudcuckoolander: He's still a big threat, but he seems a little more "out there" than many of the Noah.

- Extra Eyes: There are three extra eyes in his forehead.
- Mind Rape: His powers can do this.
- Mr. Exposition: Due to being the only Noah aside from the Earl and perhaps Road who hasn't lost their memories, he fills in quite a bit about the original Noah.
- Power Dyes Your Hair: One chapter starts with him awakening as Noah- the page is coloured and his hair is brown. It turns white the second his Extra Eyes show up.
- Telepathy: However, he has been unable to read Alma, whose mind was too closed off even for him.
One of the Noah that woke off-screen. Attacked Lavi and Bookman, and took them as hostages. Also injured Chaozii.
- Body Horror: When he attacks Link, his entire torso is shown to form the Noah's grin smiling.

- The Quiet One: Doesn't speak much when he chats a bit with Tyki, but then again, look at that tongue.
- Terrible Artist: Seems to like doodling.
- The Virus: What his power appears to be.

A man who's shrouded in mystery. The 14th Noah. He backstabbed his own family 35 years ago, killed almost all of them save for the Millennium Earl and Road, failed with his biggest goal and was forced to flee from the Earl with his brother for years. He made a pact with Cross Marian, and requested that he watch over Mana, until he returned one day. The future host happened to be Allen, of all people. While it's unclear when exactly were the 14th's memories implanted to him, Allen just was unfortunate enough to be nearby when he diednote . He's now gradually taking over his host's body and mind.
Presumably he's taking into account the general info and handful of appearances he's had. That, and the fact that Earl is still sore for his killing attempt, as the 14th was his favorite among the Noahs.
- Ambiguously Evil: Though in the past he killed all of the Noah except for the Earl and Road, he's definitely not an ally of the Order (he hates Innocence as much as the rest of the Noah, in fact), and wishes to kill the current Earl to take his place. His true intentions for this are so far unknown, with only a few hints revealed in the current manga arc.
- Badass Longcoat: In his appearance inside Allen's inner world, he appears wearing a white(depicted in Hollow as beige) overcoat. His shadow also wears it.
- BFS: A flashback shows him holding the exact same sword the Earl uses currently.
- Big Bad Ensemble: He's out for blood against the Earl and he doesn't care about Apocryphos, but he's easily Allen's most personal antagonist.
- Chekhov's Gunman: Makes his first appearance during 59th chapter in Allen's ominous dream making a rather creepy first impression. It can be passed off as nothing, as Allen doesn't seem think about the dream afterwards.
- Doppelgänger: When he appears in Allen's mind, he looks almost exactly like Tyki Mikk to the point where Allen initially thinks he is Tyki. This was discussed in chapter 183, when Wisely saw Tyki and was surprised that he looked exactly like "that man".
- Enemy Within: He's one of these to Allen.
- Evil Laugh: When he laughs during Allen's transformation into a Noah after Kanda stabs Allen with Mugen, even the ground rumbles. As seen in chapter 198.
- Evil Uncle: Since Mana is Allen's adoptive father and Nea is his brother, this , in a way, makes him Allen's uncle. He is also trying to take over his body at the moment, a process who would erase Allen's whole persona to reincarnate in the present.
- The Faceless: The first time he actually appears in the series (when Allen enters in the piano room of the Ark), he appears as a shadow with no more features than his coat. We later got a look on his true face twice; we have a brief, vague glimpse of his face when the Earl dreamed of him promising to always stay by his side and looking to be in his teens, and then we get a good look at him in his Noah form, pictured above, later...
- Famous Last Words: May not be exactly his last words before he passed but to Mana they were 'Don't stop. Keep walking.'
- Flower Motifs: In one of Hoshino's Instagram's posts, she mentioned how poppy flowers represent Nea and his brother.
- Forgotten Friend, New Foe: Chapter 215 reveals that, according to Nea at least, he and Allen were originally friends and Allen was the one who offered his body as Nea's new host. Judging by how hurt Nea looks after realizing Allen lost his memories, it's pretty safe to assume their friendship was strong and genuine though.
- Killing Intent: Link notes that Nea radiates this whenever he is in control of Allen's body.
- Living Memory: Was devoured by the Earl 35 years ago but his memory lived on being transplanted into Allen's.
- Living Shadow: Zigzagged. He appears to Allen in the Ark as a shadowy figure with no distinct features other than his coat, eyes and grin, but only as a reflection of the room instead of a proper shadow. After the Ark arc, Allen notices that the "shadow" followed him outside the Ark and appears in the mirrors and reflections, though only Allen can see it. Though the shadow is harmless, Allen finds it unnerving.
- Mysterious Past: Even with recent reveals in the manga, we barely know anything about him and Mana's past from the time they were split apart as the Millennium Earl.
- Perpetual Smiler: The shadow of Nea always appear smiling, no matter the situation (though in some instances it appears without any mouth at all). It makes it the more creepy.
- Person of Mass Destruction: He killed almost all of the Noahs 35 years ago, which is definitely no mean feat, and wants to kill and replace the Millennium Earl.
- Slasher Smile: Almost every time when speaking to the Earl.
- Spell My Name with a "The": For a long time, he's known simply as the 14th Noah. His true name is revealed to be Nea D. Campbell.
- Split at Birth: He and Mana actually form the Earl together, they were just two halves of him born separately.
- Split-Personality Takeover:
- He pulls one of these in chapter 189, but then his host resists and regains control.
- Tries this again in chapter 214 and succeeds.
- The Starscream: His goal consists in killing the Millennium Earl and take his place. He attempted this 35 years ago before the start of the series, but ended being killed by the Earl, not before wiping out the whole Noah Clan except for Road. It seems he still wants to kill the Earl in the present, as he reveals (through Allen's body) to the Earl himself in the North American headquarters of the Black Order.
- Supernatural Gold Eyes: Even in human form, he and Mana have gold eyes.
- The Promise: Made an unknown one to Mana, and plans to fulfill it even now 35 years later.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: As the last page of Chapter 213 has recently shown, he used to be a nice kid before he turned evil.
Allies of the Noah

A specialized golem with the shape of an umbrella and a jack-o-lantern head at the end of the tip that faithfully serves the Millenium Earl. Cowardly and easy to scare, the Earl uses him to transport himself and to summon his sword (though he can summon it without Lero's help).
- Animate Inanimate Object: Being an umbrella-shaped golem, he's able to move and has his own personality.
- The Chew Toy: Outside transporting the Earl (or Road when she steals him from the Earl), his main role in the series seems to be being abused by nearly everyone and getting zero respect, all for the amusement of the audience. It tells you something when the ones who mistreat him the most are his own Noah allies.
- Demoted to Extra: Though he initially had some presence in the earlier arcs, serving as a comic relief, he stopped appearing after the Noah's Ark incident, and his following appearances have been short and he hasn't speak at all.
- Dirty Coward: In spite of his smug behaviour towards the Exorcists in the Noah's Ark, as soon as Road (the only remaining Noah fighting) is defeated and the Ark is close to being destroyed for good, he starts to cry and beg for the Earl to appear and save him and the exorcised Tyki.
- Flight: His main ability is the one to float in the air, while also being resilient enough to carry people like the Earl or Road. This makes him a pretty good transport when the occasion needs it.
- Golem: He's one In-Universe, but, following the depiction of golems in D. Gray Man, he's actually a magical device instead of an Artificial Human made from clay, though he still follows the "being created by magic" part, as he was (presumably) created by the Earl.
- Living Weapon: Possibly zigzagged, if not subverted. He is initially used in Edo by the Earl to summon his sword in his fight against Allen, but when the Earl appears in the Noah's Ark to rescue Tyki, he has his sword with him without needing Lero's help. Moreover, considering Lero hasn't shown any offensive ability (not even when the Exorcists were beating him in the Ark), is probably that Lero is not really a weapon, but simply a catalyst that the Earl uses when he needs his sword, and his main function is to transport his master.
- Only Sane Man: Surprisingly, even though he isn't free from quirks himself, he is this for the Noahs. While most of them tend to be erratic and take things lightly, Lero is quick to call them out of their antics, like when he reminded Jasdevi that they have a mission to follow when they were playing with Allen and his friends. And, suffice to say, he was absolutely horrified when Road kiss Allen (their enemy) as soon as she finds him in the Ark.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: Despite being generally harmless and being the butt of the jokes more often than not, his only successful evil act was kidnapping a weakened Lenalee (along with Allen, Lavi, Krory, Kanda and Chaozii, who rushed to her rescue) into the Noah's Ark, leaving her and her friends at the mercy of the Noahs who were in the Ark.
- Parasol of Pain: A literal example, as he is a magical, living umbrella. A subverted example too, as he is only a threat when the Earl uses him, otherwise he is a complete weakling, unable to even kill a normal human like Chaozii (before he obtained Innocence at least).
- Smug Snake: He despises Exorcists as much as the Noah Family does, and doesn't waste his chance to taunt and mock them while trapped in the Noah's Ark. Unfortunately for him, he is way less impressive than his stronger and more competent allies, ending abused by the Exorcists for his troubles.
- Spell My Name with an "S": His name has been romanized as Rero or Relo in some fansubs and scans. It doesn't helps both the "l" and "r" sounds don't exists in the Japanese language.
- Stingy Jack: He is a golem with the form of an umbrella and a jack-o-lantern head. However, unlike the legend, he is compeltely harmless most of the time.
- Verbal Tic Name: Always ends his sentences with "-lero", hence his name.

Known as "The Prisoner of the List Cage" Cell Roron is a small strange creature imprisoned in a playing card that serves Tyki Mikk. His job is to keep track of the people on the Earl's kill list and identify them so that Tyki can dispose of them.
- Butt-Monkey: He's a tiny little man trapped inside a playing card who never smiles and is often seen crying.
- The Eeyore: He's constantly miserable and easily driven to tears when he can't wash Allen's name off his wall.
- Meaningful Name: Cell's a pretty fitting name for someone who's a prisoner.
- Perpetual Frowner: He's never seen without a huge frown on his face. Being trapped inside a playing card and forced to serve the Noah may have something to do with it.
- Psychic Powers: He can identify people listed on the walls of his prison by sight and knows when they have become deceased.
- Punch-Clock Villain: He never directly hurts anyone and is implied to only be helping Tyki because he's being held prisoner. The only bad thing he does is identify Allen to Tyki as one of the people on his list.
The Teez are flesh-eating golems gifted to Tyki by the Earl that take the form of black butterflies. They can nest inside human beings and multiply by consuming their flesh, making them a dangerous threat even towards exorcists.
- Butterfly of Death and Rebirth: They first show up near the end of volume 6 and are used by Tyki to murder Suman and then Allen after destroying his innocence. (Death.) This results in Allen narrowly surviving the ordeal and growing stronger as a result, culminating in him managing to restore and invoke his innocence on a higher level than before. (Rebirth.)
- Golem: Despite looking like butterflies the Teez are actually artificial magical golems made by the Earl.
- Playing Card Motifs: It's a bit subtle compared to most examples but their wings are designed with the four playing card suits. (Diamonds, clubs, spades and hearts.)
The skulls are humanoid servants of the Millennium Earl that have chubby proportions and skull-like faces. Their main role is to serve as support for the Noah's forces through the use of powerful magic, though they also do more mundane jobs like cleaning and mending the Earl's clothing.
- Immune to Bullets: It's noted in their profile that they resist bullets. During the invasion of the Black Order HQ a Skull is shot in the head by Reever at near pointblank range and responds with a slightly annoyed grunt of pain. That same arc showed that they are vulnerable to exorcist weapons and akuma attacks though.
- Long-Lived: According to their official profile they can live for about 200 years on average.
- Meaningful Name: Their name comes from the skull-like appearance of their faces.
- Skull for a Head: The name kinda gives it away, but yeah, these guys look like robed humans with skull-like faces.
- Was Once a Man: They can create more of themselves through dark magic once they find someone with a suitable brain. After a short incantation their victim is wrapped in a black silk cocoon that completely covers their entire body. Seconds after the spell is complete a new Skull then emerges, completely unaware of who it once was.
