    Earthlings/The Heroes 

Cinque Izumi
Voiced by: Mamoru Miyano

Thirteen-year-old British-Japanese boy summoned by Millhiore as the Hero of Biscotti to counter Gallette's increasing aggression. Master of the Holy Sword Palladion.

  • Accidental Kiss: With Eclair, after a young cat goddess attempts to make them butt heads.
  • Accidental Pervert: Accidentally groped Eclair and stripped her down to her panties, saw Millhiore nude four times already and Becky once, had a naked Noir land on top on him, and also accidentally copped a feel from Sharu.
  • Affectionate Gesture to the Head: He loves petting the many animal girls on the head, especially Princess Millhiore who he treats like his own personal puppy.
  • Badass Adorable: A sweet, caring, carefree boy who can hold himself in battle.
  • Bishōnen: Already quite the looker, especially in his Hero Stone form.
  • Blade on a Stick: In Dash, he can now transform Palladion into a lance.
  • But Not Too Foreign: He is half-British (specifically, from Cornwall in southwest England), explaining his blond hair.
  • Celibate Hero: Claimed to be this to Becky in Episode 3 of Dash. She didn't believe in the slightest.
    • In Episode 13 of Dash he admits to Couvert that he has to accomplish a goal first before entering a relationship.
  • Chick Magnet: Best described in episode eight while Becky and Milhi are talking about him.
    Rebecca: Shinku seems to fall in love with everyone he meets.
    Milhi: And that's what we love about him.
  • Determinator
  • Expy: Of Flynn Scifo, sharing the same blond hair, chivalrous attitude and voice actor.
    • Of Erio if you want another work by Seven Arc. Reinforced by the fact that he hangs out with Millhiore, who's basically Caro with dog ears.
  • Fish out of Water: At times.
  • Hachimaki
  • The Hero: For Millhiore and Biscotti.
  • Heroes Love Dogs: One of the reasons why he works so well in an Alternate Universe of animal people. Cinque is definitely a dog person. He treats all the dog people in the same way he would treat real dogs, petting the Princess on the head and playing fetch with her.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Averted: Cinque's Weapon of Choice is a Simple Staff, thanks to his training in bojutsu. In fact, he can't even turn Palladion into a sword at first; Millifiore theorizes that he'll be able to do it when he really needs it which turns out to be the battle with the demon-possessed spirit near the end of the first season. Afterwards he still sticks with his staff, but breaks out the sword when things get really serious.
  • Hover Board: The "Tornada".
  • Idiot Hero: Though he has mostly grown out of ignorance when he first arrived, Eclair refers to him as this.
  • Invincible Hero: Cinque is easily becoming this, considering that the hero crystal he got practically made him a God-Mode Sue who has been shown to be immune to things that would normally plague the more experienced cast. But only if you're the kind of person who seriously measures power levels in a show like this to begin with.
  • Keet
  • Knight in Shining Armor
  • Le Parkour: Hell, every episode this guy's doing something athletic wherever he goes.
  • Stock Light-Novel Hero: Cinque is a near perfect example, even though he's one of the rare cases where he isn't from a light novel. He starts off as an Ordinary High-School Student where he was an ace athlete before abruptly being summoned to another world inhabited by animal people. In that other world he's The Chosen One and becomes The Hero with a very large Unwanted Harem comprised of the many girls there. He's the World's Best Warrior and is on the verge of becoming an Invincible Hero, being gifted with a Legendary Weapon and an assortment of powerful skills. Though personality wise he's quite cheerful and fun loving which is more in line with a Shonen hero.
  • Magnetic Hero: It has been proven, stated, and shown that Cinque has the ability to befriend any person he meets and is able to win the affections of pretty much every main and supporting character that shows up. Millhiore brings this up the most; constantly inquiring whether or not various people that Cinque meets in Season 1 like him, as she likes him so much that she expects everyone else too as well.
  • Meaningful Name: "Shinku", the Japanese spelling of his name, means red. Guess what his primary outfit color is...
  • Nice Guy
  • Older Alter Ego: Midway through Dash, he gets a Hero's Stone, which gives him an Overnight Age-Up Super Mode. It even lets him completely ignore a People Puppets attempt.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Only a handful of characters actually call him by his real name. Everyone else just refers to him as "The Hero" or "Sir Hero".
  • Playing with Fire
  • Ship Tease: Has the most with practically every girl that appears in the show, shall we name them?
    • With Millhiore? Check
    • With Rico? Check
    • With Eclair? Check
    • With Yuki? Check
    • With Noir? Check
    • With Becky? Heck yes
      • And now we even have Nanami (who is his cousin) in Season 3.
  • Simple Staff: He turns his Palladion into this. In Dash he also allows it to transform into a spear.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Some fansubs translate his name as "Shinku", although its inscription in katakana implies it is a foreign name.
    • Some fansubs translate the name into "Sink", "Shinku" is more reasonable because of its meaning but seriously "SINK"?
  • Spot of Tea: In the manga. He is half-British after all.
  • Summon Everyman Hero
  • You Can't Go Home Again: In Episode 2 of the first season, he discovers, much to his despair, that once summoned to Flonyard, he can never return home again. Ricotta ultimately found a way to do so, but it also ran the risk of wiping out his memories of Flonyard and barring him from returning. Turns out the mementos he left for his friends ultimately gave Ricotta a way to bring him back and restore his memories.

  • Multicolored Hair: Like his sister Brioche, his hair is of a darker shade below his cheeks.
  • Mundane Utility: His sword-smith skills include household blades, such as camping or cooking knives.
  • Older Than He Looks: He's 150 year old Brioche's older brother, thus this is implicit and pretty much confirmed by the fact that he's friends with Adelaide and Valerio

Voiced by: Ami Koshimizu

Princess of Galette, Millhiore's estranged childhood friend, and older sister of Gaul. In battle she personally leads her troops in battle, and wields the Demon Axe Grandvert, which she also transforms into a bow.

  • Abdicate the Throne: She originally planned on stepping down in favor of Gaul once he comes of age, but the prophecy of Millhiore's death forced her to stay for a little longer and lead Galette's march to Biscotti in order to steal Millhiore's two swords and let the ordained day pass without incident.
  • Aloof Big Sister: The once kind-and-loving big-sister figure to Millhiore suddenly became this by the time the war started.
  • Anti-Villain: In season one
  • An Axe to Grind: Weapon of Choice

  • Bishōnen: A kid who looks incredibly good, especially under the influence of a Hero Stone.

Franboise Charley
Voiced by: Takahiro Sakurai

A newscaster who commentates on the battles between the two countries.

Head of the Knights of Galette and an old rival of Rolan.

Noire Vinocacao
Voiced by: Kana Hanazawa

  • A-Cup Angst: She doesn't take kindly to the fact that Éclair has a better chest than her.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl
  • Ascended Extra: Come Dash she gets a noticeably greater airtime than her other Genoise teammates. She even becomes Galette's representative for Ricotta's international demon-slaying team.

Jaune Clafoutis
Voiced by: Yoriko Nagata

A member of the Genoise trio specializing in heavy combat.

  • An Axe to Grind
  • Badass Adorable
  • Big Eater: In the third season every time we see her at a restaurant or a banquet, she's got three times more food than anyone else. But what else would you expect from a Tiger Girl?
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass
  • Genki Girl
  • Kansai Regional Accent: specifically, Osaka-ben. ("These days Osaka-ben is generally used to indicate a fun loving, impatient, loud, boisterous personality." and that's Jaune to a T.)
  • Le Parkour: No where close to Cinque's (or even Nanami's, who soundly outclasses him) levels, but remarkable enough especially when taking into account her heavy hitting tendencies. One particular episode in the third season has her fending off a horde of slime monsters with an impressive array of acrobatic flips, backhands, punches and flying kicks, all while holding her large weapon with one hand.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is French for "yellow", fitting her yellow attire and blond bangs.
    • Clafoutis is a French desert made with black cherries.
  • Multicolored Hair: Has blond bangs and, the rest is brown.
  • Wrestler in All of Us

A member of the Genoise trio specializing in long-ranged combat. She is also an import from the Halver Kingdom, realm of rabbit-people, and it is through her that its young prince, Leaf, met Leonmitchelli.

Violet Amaret
Voiced by: Sakura Tange

Captain of the Imperial Guard.

    Duchy of Pastillage 

Couvert Eschenbach Pastillage
Voiced by: Aoi Yuuki

A squirrel-girl, friend of Millhiore and Leonmitchelli, and ruler-in-training of the newly-formed Duchy of Pastillage, as well as a new player in Dash who will turn the Biscotti-Galette war games into a three-way scuffle with the intention of training herself for her future role, scouting Rebecca to serve as her heroic counterpart to Biscotti's Cinque and Galette's Nanami. Wielder of the Holy Lance Coumars.

  • Camp Straight: Her treatment of Becky is borderline Butch Lesbian-ish, but still draws a line at proposing to her.
  • Cool Gun: Her preferred mode for the Coumars.
  • Cry Cute: At the end of Season 2 Episode 12, after Becky (with Cinque's assistance) saves her, Ricotta and Noire from a cave full of traps.
  • Curious as a Monkey: Yes, go mess around with a cave full of traps and Valério's sealing monument. It won't cause trouble!
  • Dare to Be Badass: Her self-description and her method of convincing Rebecca to become her Heroine.
  • Famous Ancestor: A descendant of the legendary Hero King. Logically that means she was descended from a Half-Human Hybrid, though the show calls all the animal people humans anyway.
    • In Dash, when she's taking Cinque to the monument, there's a very brief flash that shows that she has our kind of ears under her hair in addition to squirrel ears.
  • Fusion Dance: Does one with Adelaide in Season 3, though she doesn't recall anything that happened during the fusion.
  • Genki Girl
  • Identical Descendant: Of Clarifier Einz Pastillage, a previous princess who summoned Adelaide.
    • This is particularly odd, since according to all available information, Fi was not a direct ancestor to Cou — rather, due to how to how Royal lineages work, she's likely Valerio's descendant (as he was crown prince). This means Fi is Cou's great-great-(insert appropriate number of "greats" here)-aunt.
  • Kansai Regional Accent
  • Large Ham
    "Behold! I have my very own Hero!"
  • Magic Carpet
  • Morph Weapon: The Coumars is originally a lance, though she prefers to use it as a Cool Gun.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Couvert fits the Edible Theme Naming, but you get variations like Couver or Couverte, or even something like Kubel.
  • Uneven Hybrid: She has a fraction of Earthling ancestry due to being Adelaide's descendant (the exact amount is unclear due to the series never specifying how many generations are between them). Because of this, she has a second pair of human ears under her hair.
  • Wave Motion Gun

Clarifier "Fi" Einz Pastillage

Voiced by: Aoi Yuuki

The last princess of Pastillage and Valério's older sister.

Callaway Risler

Member of the Order of the Crystaltech and captain of the Eschenbach Knights, as well as Couvert's personal attendant.

Liscia Enrobéz
Voiced by: Maaya Uchida

Another member of the Order of the Crystaltech and captain of the Flytech Knights.


Valério Calvados

Voiced by: Kosuke Toriumi
The notorious Demon King that terrorized Pastillage in the distant past. In fact, probably not. Why such a legend appeared left ambiguous but supplementary materials and the third season cleared this up in that regard: he was really the younger brother of Clarifier, which meant that he was actually the crown prince.

A noted demon researcher, it is through his help that the widespread demon infestations plaguing the continent was reduced to much more manageable levels. His "Demon King" moniker is something that he took up as a bit of a joke, to keep people from bothering him during his research, but eventually got into because it was fun, and it also served to keep complacent countries on their toes with regard to the demon threat.

  • Affably Evil: Of the comical variant, in that he'd rather peep on the hot springs than actually go around spreading evil. As it turns out, his bad-guy status is just an act.
  • Anti-Villain
  • But Now I Must Go: Humorously subverted.
  • Butt-Monkey: To Adelaide.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Yes, he is a goofy Peeping Tom who Screams Like a Little Girl, has Amusing Injuries piled on for comedy, and is pretty much whipped by Adelaide. He is still a Demon King.
  • Evil Is Hammy: He tends to act this way at times.
  • Eye Scream: Adelaide shoots him in the eyes!
  • Face–Heel Turn: Adelaide's story reintroduces him as the brother of the previous princess when she was summoned, setting this up. subverted when it's discovered why he took on the title of Demon King.
  • Handsome Lech
  • Harmless Villain: What became of him once Adelaide reins him in. He may not even qualify as much of a villain anymore. Episode 8 of season 3 reveals he was never actually a bad guy. He was just playing the part of the Demon King, because of his research into demons.
  • Henpecked Husband: Adelaide has him completely whipped and it's implied that they're married, or at the very least had children together.
  • In Name Only: Despite his self-appellation, it is implied he is a demon by association only — supplementary materials reveal that he is actually the younger brother of Clarifier, the last princess of Pastillage and Adelaide's summoner. Double Dash Episode 8 reveals that his "Demon King" shtick was actually his way of scaring complacent nobles straight.
  • Iron Butt Monkey: Easily the most durable in the cast.
  • It Amused Me: Why he originally became the Demon King. He kept demons around for research, but found it interesting when adventurers would challenge him in combat. He also did this to keep nobles from getting too complacent lest they actually start a war where people would really get killed.
  • Large Ham
  • Lovable Sex Maniac
  • Mana Drain: The "Dark Circle of Absorption".
  • Maou the Demon King: Played with. The title of demon king is merely something that others gave to him due to his study of demons, a title he embraced in order to keep complaint nobles on their toes (and because it was fun). In reality, he's the former crown prince of Pastillage and the hero king that supposedly defeated him is actually one of his comrades (and is implied to be his wife).
  • Mr. Fanservice
  • Naked on Arrival
  • No Shirt, Long Jacket
  • Official Couple: Implied with Adelaide, since Couvert refers to both of them as her ancestors.
  • Oh, Crap!: When he realized that Adelaide has been unsealed as well.
  • The Peeping Tom: First thing he does after getting unsealed? Watch the ladies in the bath.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Scare 'em Straight: Him being the "Demon King" is but an act meant to knock the nobles out of their complacency and remain vigilant to the threat of demons ravaging Flognarde.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Every time Adelaide gives him good reason to cringe.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Appears this way, especially when he first appears. But he's not a very good villain, and often gets beat up by Adelaide to keep him in check.
  • The Smart Guy: Served in this role for the demon slaying party. Even before that, he was already an expert researcher on demons.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name has been said to be Valerio or Valeria.
  • That Came Out Wrong: He's pretty content to see sealed demons being purified... then nervously gives a Suspiciously Specific Denial that demons running wild is none of his business.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Season 2 Episode 7 makes it clear he was part of Adelaide's demon hunting party. Heck, he isn't even that evil anymore... assuming he ever was. Episode 8 of season 3 shows he was actually never evil. He just played the role because he found it easier to justify keeping all the demons around for research purposes. Later he found it amusing when adventurers would attempt to challenge him to combat in his Demon King role.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Implied with Adelaide.

Adelaide Grand Marnier

Voiced by: Eri Kitamura
The original Hero of Pastillage and founder of its current ruling family.


Voiced by: Sumire Uesaka

A horse-girl and oracle of Dragon Forest, the great wilderness beyond Biscotti, Galette and Pastillage, who serves as Cinque and Nanami's guide to life beyond the pale, as well as the messenger to the three kingdoms of a critical mass of demons around her realm.

  • Archer Archetype: Her bow is not for show.
  • Badass Adorable: Like most of the cast.
  • Big Damn Heroes: How she introduces herself to Cinque and Nanami.
  • But Now I Must Go: After her arc early in Double Dash, she doesn't show up again for quite some time. Justified in the sense that she has to watch to watch over the lands as the Dragon Priestess, so is unable to visit the others.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Wears bands of fabric around her insteps and no other footwear.
  • Waif-Fu: For a lithe forest-dweller, she is pretty nimble with a bow and arrow, and is also athletic to boot.
  • Wild Child: In contrast to most Flognarde characters, Sharu is a forest-dweller.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Light, cerulean-like hair, to be exact.

Leaf Heinz de Shea Halver

Voiced by: Fumiko Orikasa

The young prince of Halver Kingdom, the realm of rabbit-people and Verte's homeland, and a good friend of Leonmitchelli.

  • Adorably Precocious Child: The opinion of many characters towards him.
  • Archer Archetype: His fighting style, shared with Vert, which may imply that this is Halver's preferred style of combat.
  • Badass Adorable: Would you believe this cute little boy nearly gave Leonmitchelli a run for her money?
  • Bow and Sword, in Accord: He fights with a short sword and a crossbow.
  • Precocious Crush: On Leonmitchelli, ever since she gave him words of encouragement to become a better fighter.
  • Warrior Prince: The guy nearly defeated Leonmitchelli in single combat (one more hit and she would have lost), and she was using Grandvert.


Voiced by: Yui Ogura

The songstress of the Star-Folk, a race of mermaids living inside the great Sky Whale. When Gaul found her, however, she was rendered mute and amnesiac by an illness.

  • Cute Mute: She apparently can communicate only through direct telepathy. Double Dash Episode 10 reveals that she cannot speak directly as a result of being ill.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: She's barefoot, only wearing a single large anklet.
  • Ill Girl: Her status when Gaul finds her.
  • Telepathy: Aria talks this way as a result of being sick.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Purple, to be exact.


Voiced by: Ayahi Takagaki

The priestess of the Sky Sea and Sharl's counterpart.

  • Boobs of Steel: She's quite well-stacked, and she specializes in good old fisticuffs to deal with demons.
    • In the following episode, it turns out she's bigger than it seemed at first.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Turning around and smiling at Sharu's entrance, while covered in the ichor of several sickness demons she has just beaten to death with nothing more than a set of spiked brass knuckles.
  • Miko: Her overall motif.
  • Our Giants Are Bigger: She is extremely large, standing several stories tall when the main characters first meet her. However, she is able to create some summons which are smaller in size and stays in contact with them this way when they attempt to find Aria.
