WARNING: Unmarked Spoilers ahead!

They are the 12 chosen participantsnote  of the survival game held by Deus Ex Machina, the god of time and space. Each of them is given a diary that is closely tied to their personality or job. Using their diaries, they are to find and eliminate each other until only one of them is left. The last man standing wins the position of god, as Deus' successor.

    Tropes Common To Diary Holders 

Tropes common to all the diary holders

  • Achilles' Heel: Their diaries are inextricably linked to their futures. If a diary is destroyed, the diary's owner will die.
  • Personality Powers: A participant's diary's abilities is dependent on the participant's lifestyle, habits, and even jobs.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: The diary holders are all named after members of the Roman Pantheon.
    • Yukiteru's last name contains the kanji for "heaven" and can be read as "heavenly field". It's fitting, considering his first name is a corruption of "Jupiter", the Roman God of Gods. When his full name is roughly translated into Latin it becomes Jupiter Caelus/Jupiter Caelestis, two of Jupiter's known epithets. He ends up winning the game of the 2nd-world among the other potential gods.
    • Seeing as Yukiteru is named for Jupiter, the kanji for Yuno's given name is really "Juno" read as Yuno (in central European languages the letter J is pronounced how Y is pronounced in English), so even more fittingly for Yukiteru, the reading of Yuno's full name is "my wife, Juno". Which is fitting, because Juno — just like her Greek counterpart Hera — gets mad at anyone who stole Jupiter's love, and would chase them down to the ends of the Earth. Then there's the fact that Juno is a war goddess too.
    • The kanji in his last name, Hiyama, is read as "volcano". The Roman god in the Dii Consentes that he is associated with? Vulcan.
    • Kurusu's is a bit harder to pin down than the others, but the kanji in his last name "kuru" means "to come" and as Mercury was the messenger to the others gods, he is probably closest to Mercury in the Dii Consentes.
    • Reisuke's last name, Houjou is written as "fertility". He corresponds with Ceres in the Dii Consentes.
    • Tsubaki's name has a nod to the Roman goddess Proserpina, the goddess of springtime. She has the kanji (春) for springtime in her name, and further connecting to Proserpina by both being beautiful women who spend much of their time hidden from the world. She may also be named after the god Apollo, god of the sun and prophecy. Her name contains the kanji for sun and her followers believed her to be clairvoyant.
    • Marco's first name comes from "Mars", the Roman god of war, and his last name's kanji is read as "battlefield", sealing the comparison. Ai's name indirectly references Venus, as her first name means "love" while her last name contains the kanji for "beauty" and "god", all strongly pointing to Venus as a reference. If that wasn't enough, Mars and Venus were also well known in the myths for their love affair. Their Child Diaries take the comparisons one step further, with Marco's being a diary that predicts his opponent's next fighting move, so he can counter it, and Ai's making predictions about all the men that she wants to flirt with in the future.
    • Kamado can mean "hearth", which is one of the domains that Vesta was goddess over. "Ueshita" sounds like "Vesta" (Ueshita/Weshita/Wesuta). Just as well, Ueshita runs an Orphanage of Love and gives a place for orphans to stay, and Vesta was also the goddess of family and the home.
    • Minene is named for two gods, who are usually paired together in the Dii Consentes. Her first name, Minene, is an obvious corruption of Minerva the goddess of battle strategy. Her last name also contains the kanji for rain 雨 (ame), which corresponds to Neptune who is the god patron of horses for some reason, though in her case her horses are motorbikes.
    • Tsukishima (月島) contains the kanji for moon, and his first name, Karyuudo, is read as "hunter". Goddess of the moon and hunting? That's Diana in the Dii Consentes.
    • John Bacchus' last name in the original Japanese is バックス (pronounced "Bakkusu"), a direct reference to the Roman God of wine and theater Bacchus. The English dub of the anime rewrote his name as "Balks", however. He's also one of the only diary holders whose namesake isn't a god listed in the Dii Consentes, along with Yomotsu Hirasaka. It probably explains why his and Yomotsu's diaries were modified last, making them Eleventh and Twelfth, respectively.
    • Yomotsu Hirasaka is the name of the boundary between Life and Death in Japanese myth, and so he can be associated with the Roman god Pluto.
  • Scry vs. Scry: The nature of their survival game is to prevent their own prophesied death while ensuring the fulfillment of the others' deaths. This is by trying to prevent any future prediction related to their own death by not acting according to the predicted future.
  • Tactical Rock–Paper–Scissors: Each diary has its own strengths and weaknesses. A big part of a diary holder's strategy is to try and find out the limits of the diary of an opposing diary holder's and use that information to his or her advantage. To elaborate:
    • Yukiteru's Random Diary records events that will happen around him. However, it doesn't predict the events that will happen to him unless it is the cause of his death. Confining him to an enclosed space also limits the things the diary can predict.
    • Yuno's Love Diary predicts the actions of one individual (Yukiteru in this case) and only that person. This means it does not predict any event that will happen to Yuno herself except for her own death.
    • Hiyama's Murder Diary is a powerful weapon for tracking down targets. However, it doesn't tell him what the target will actually do, thus making it useless for defending himself.
    • Kurusu's Case Diary lets him know the movements of suspects in the cases he is involved in, but does not allow him to see the movements of people who are not involved in a case except to warn him of a Dead End.
    • Reisuke's Hyper Vision Diary gives him ample time to plan out his day. However, it only predicts three events a day and doesn't help in predicting the immediate future.
    • Tsubaki's Clairvoyant Diary records the observations of every one of her cult members, giving it an enormous range but making it vulnerable to information overload. It is also large and cumbersome, and extremely fragile.
    • Marco and Ai's Exchange Diaries tell them about the other's future, making them a formidable team. However, this leaves them vulnerable if they're separated.
    • Kamado's Propagation Diary allows her to mass produce Child Diaries. However, this means she has no diary of her own, meaning that she has to rely on others to fight for her. Also, the Child Diaries require an internet connection to work, making them vulnerable to signal jamming.
    • Minene's Escape Diary helps her avoid death, but has no offensive utility. It also still shows a Dead End if the odds are too stacked against her.
    • Tsukishima's Breeder Diary lets him control an army of attack dogs and see their future, allowing him to hide safely in his mansion. However, the more dogs he controls, the harder it is to keep track of all of them.
    • John Bacchus's Watcher Diary allows him to read the contents of every other Diary, making his the most powerful diary in the game. However, it can't verify the truth of what he reads, meaning that someone can write a fake entry into their dairy to mislead him.
    • Yomotsu Hirasaka's Justice Diary warns him about acts of "injustice" which can be useful in a game where the goal is to kill everyone else. It also gives him hypnotic powers. However, it alerts him to all acts of injustice, even stuff as minor as littering.
  • You Are Number 6: Their codenames in the Survival Game are ordinal numbers.

    Yukiteru Amano - The First 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yukiter_8323.png
Voiced by: Misuzu Togashi (JP), Josh Grelle (EN)

A timid boy who views life as though he were a casual bystander. His "Indiscriminate Diary" records future observations about everything and everyone around him, although it usually doesn't record any information about himself except for his DEAD END. At first he's unwilling to participate in the Diary game, but Deus still considers him the favorite to win. He has an...interesting relationship with Yuno.


  • Accidental Pervert: When he first meets Hinata, he trips and his hand lands on her pants and pulls them down, revealing her underwear to the class.
  • Action Survivor: Being in the Survival Game with all the rest of the diary holders setting their sights on him forces Yuki to fight in order to survive.
  • Adorkable: He is very shy and awkward.
  • All-Loving Hero: He has his ups and downs throughout the series, but in the final battle, he decides to try to give everyone a happy ending by protecting 3rd-world Yuno from 2nd-world Yuno, not by killing the latter but by changing her mind. At the end, the only person he didn't manage to save was 2nd-world Yuno, who chooses to commit suicide instead of killing him as he wanted.
  • All-Powerful Bystander: After becoming god, he does nothing besides mourning Yuno's death for 10,000 years.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: "Yuno! Do you really love me? Or are you just insane?"
  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: Becomes god after winning the Survival Game.
  • Badass Adorable: Comes with being a timid Adorkable Action Survivor.
  • Badass and Child Duo: Strikes this with Minene especially during the Final Battle.
  • Badass Driver: Becomes this later in the series at the age of 14. Just look his car chase against Eleventh.
  • Badass on Paper: Killing Third put him in the running for among Deus's prime choices for potential godhood. It also makes him a prime target for the other diary owners. He's also killed Sixth and Fourth along the way. Not bad for a Cowardly Lion who spends most of his time crying and running scared.
  • Badass Pacifist: In the final battle, Yuki is unwilling to kill Yuno, but he won't allow her to harm her 3rd-world self.
  • Badass Unintentional: Taking out Hiyama was only an act of self defense, but by becoming the first diary holder to kill another diary holder, Deus called him the prime candidate to win the Survival Game. This made the all the rest of the diary holders set their sights on him.
  • Batman Gambit: He seems to attempt one during his battle with Yuno in 3rd world. He continues to run around the school, deliberately putting himself in danger, since he knows Yuno's diary will keep her one step ahead of him. He presumably does this so that her diary will show her that she does truly love him (which she is in denial about at this point), and thus convince her not to kill her 3rd world self and repeat the game with his 3rd world self. However, while her diary entries do make her realize her true feelings, she still decides to repeat the game, creating a Lotus-Eater Machine for him using Deus' sphere instead of trying to kill him. She only gives up on this after he and 2nd-world Mur Mur break out of the sphere, and ultimately decides to kill herself and allow him to become God in the 2nd world.
  • Battle Couple: After he becomes more competent in combat and his relationship with Yuno solidifies, he forms this dynamic with her.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Yuki is a nice and shy boy, but can fight back in self defense and later he starts to go quite crazy.
  • Break the Cutie: Happens several times to Yuki. Most notably when he forgives his father for killing his mother, and everyone looks like it is going to be alright until John Balks' hitmen assassinate Yuki's dad.
  • Classical Anti-Hero: Though he cares for others, for all the power that his diary gives him he is cowardly and very reluctant to act.
  • Clueless Chick Magnet: There have been at least five characters who've either flirted with, kissed, or shown attraction to Yuki throughout the series, and more blatantly, the fact that the School Idol was stalking him for a year and he didn't realize it until after he got his future diary.
  • Cowardly Lion: Yuki spends the vast majority of his time crying, screaming, and running from the people determined to kill him, but he can fight back when cornered.
  • Cradle of Loneliness: He is so crippled by the loss of Yuno that he just sits there staring at the last entry in his diary "Yuno died" for 10,000 years.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: After his father kills his mother in a moment of extreme stress and desperation, Yuki is left devastated. But it's the death of his father at the hands of the Eleventh's henchmen just after he had apologized to him that prompts Yuki to momentarily go berserk, start fighting back, trust Yuno fully, and resolve to become God.
  • Deadpan Snarker: In the English dub.
  • Death Glare:
    • In Episode 14 he delivers one very angry glare to Yuno after he escapes from the chair to which she had bound him.
    • Another to the Eleventh's men in Episode 18.
  • Death Seeker: In the final battle, Yuki asks Yuno to kill him so she can become the god of the 2nd-world. However, Yuno chooses to kill herself instead, as his actions have made her realize how deep her feelings are for him, and she can't bear to kill him. Yuki spends the following 10,000 years mourning the fact of not being able to save her.
  • Designated Victim: Considers himself this in early chapters, often being put in situations he does not want to be in. This trope comes and goes over the course of the story.
  • Determinator: Shows shades of this later. In the final battle he declares he will save Yuno no matter what.
  • Devoted to You: Yuno literally lives to love Yuki and there is no one that she cares about besides him. Akise is also very devoted to him.
  • Distressed Dude: He usually gets himself in trouble and Yuno has to save him. And there was a time in which his friends had to save him from Yuno herself.
  • Doppelgänger Replacement Love Interest: To Yuno. The Yukiteru she originally wanted to marry was his 1st World counterpart. After 1st-world Yukiteru died, Yuno went back in time and decided to use 2nd-world Yukiteru as a replacement. She actually was fine with killing him so she could get together with the 3rd-world Yukiteru, but by the end she developed real feelings for 2nd-world Yukiteru.
  • Driven to Villainy: Yuki at first doesn't want to kill anyone, but the events of the Survival Game, especially the death of his parents, screw him over. Yuki then becomes willing to kill the other diary owners and anyone that gets in his way if it means resurrecting his parents, although he admits he does not wish to do so, but is equally afraid to face life without his parents.
  • The Dulcinea Effect: Towards Tsubaki, quickly jumping in to save her and escape with her despite having just met her. It's not until she makes it obvious that she's actually a Manipulative Bitch that wants to kill him that he decides to go back to teaming up with Yuno.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Just like Yuno, Aru Akise is madly in love with him.
  • Excessive Mourning: Yuki is so devastated by the death of his beloved Yuno that he doesn't give a crap about his new job as the God of the 2nd World. He just spends 10,000 years floating amongst the ruined remains of the world, staring mournfully at the final entry of his cell phone diary stating that Yuno died.
  • Expy: Of Shinji Ikari and Shinji Kido.
  • Extreme Doormat: Initially he views himself as a spectator from the sidelines and doesn't does much to fight back. This manifests in the power of his Diary, which see only the future of the world around him.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: With Minene. They develop a Like Brother and Sister relationship after going through many fights together.
  • God Couple: With 3rd-world Yuno, who is given 1st-world Yuno's memories and becomes god to save him from spending eternity alone in the void the 2nd-world has become.
  • Grew a Spine: Tries to be more self-assertive and confident throughout the series. This backfires horribly.
  • Heroic BSoD:
    • Yuki goes into a severe depression after his mother is killed by his father. Boy howdy.
    • In the anime, Yuki performs a Skyward Scream upon learning Yuno killed her second self.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: He often states "I know I'm pathetic! I know it! But...I'm weak!".
  • Hypocrite Has a Point: Yuno tells him that he has no moral high ground over her considering all the people he's killed. The context of their conversation, however, is that Yuno plans to travel from timeline to timeline, leaving them to destruction as she seeks new incarnations of him before eventually disposing of them too.
  • I Can't Believe a Guy Like You Would Notice Me: When Yuno looks his way for a moment in the first episode, he quickly brushes it off with "Nah, can't be," and is genuinely surprised that she even knew his namenote . Of course, his reaction to learning the truth of the matter is a little less than enthusiastic.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: He wishes to overcome his shy behaviour and make friends. Too bad Yuno wants to be his Only Friend...
  • Image Song: "You Are Your Life's Leading Part, So Walk With Confidence".
  • Improbable Weapon User: He uses hand darts! Very good at it from years of practice at home.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: He's the most heroic of the diary holders and he's one of the few characters with blue eyes.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Minene.
  • Kid with the Leash: The only one who can ground Yuno in anyway.
  • Kiss of Death: If you're not Yuno Gasai, kissing Yuki is a great way to get yourself killed. Tsubaki and Akise learned the hard way.
  • Like Parent, Like Spouse: His first crush looks a lot like his mom.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: To Yuno. When he jokingly accepted her wedding proposal, it gave her a reason to live.
  • Lonely at the Top: Enforced and Justified. Yukiteru had to kill the last person who was important to him, Yuno, and became god of the empty 2nd-world.
  • Loners Are Freaks: Gets this treatment at school due to his own asocial personality. However, he does try to get better and make friends. Unfortunately, Yuno won't let anyone get close to Yuki.
  • Loner-Turned-Friend: He manages to make a small group of friends with Akise, Hinata, and Mao (and Kosaka). However, they all end up dying, mostly at his hands, in his quest for Godhood.
  • The Lost Lenore: His 1st-World self serves as this for 1st-world Yuno, who then becomes this for 2nd-world Yuki.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Later, Yuki goes quite crazy for his dead parents AND Yuno.
  • Love Martyr: Once he genuinely falls for Yuno, the sheer amount of crap he puts up with from her while still sticking loyally by her side most definitely makes him this.
  • Necessarily Evil: How Yukiteru views himself, once he decides to actively take part in the Survival Game. Prior to that, the only people he killed were in direct self-defense. As he begins killing in order to win the game, he justifies it by saying that once he becomes the new god, he can resurrect everyone he's killed and give them happy lives. Cruelly enough, he finds out far too late that even God can't bring back the souls of dead people. He doesn't take this news well.
  • Necromantic: His eventual reason for trying to win the game is to bring his parents back to life.
  • Nice Hat: He occasionally wears a brown hat atop.
  • No Guy Wants to Be Chased: Yukiteru makes it very obvious that Yuno's insanely aggressive obsession and pursuit of him is what puts him off and scares him away from her. Numerous times, he suggests that if she were to be more passive and gentle, he would fall for her completely in an instant. Though this not might be true and maybe just because Yuno's trying too hard. 'Cause she's a Yandere.
  • Non-Action Guy: In the beginning, he leaves most of the fighting to Yuno, though it's downplayed since even then he offs three other diary owners even before taking a level in badass. This is subverted later on when he becomes more competent in combat and even fights alongside with Yuno.
  • Official Couple: With Yuno.
  • Only Sane Man: Out of all the diary holders, he appears to be the most sane and rational. However as the series goes on, he slowly begins to slip.
  • Ordinary Middle School Student: Before the Survival Game, there was nothing really abnormal about his life.
  • Pitbull Dates Puppy: Yuki is a cowardly and passive Extreme Doormat who always tries to run away crying from danger, while Yuno is a sociopathic and possessive Yandere who will happily kill anyone that gets in her and Yuki's way. At first, Yuki is terrified of Yuno, but he keeps her around because he needs a bodyguard and he's even more scared of what she might do to him if he rejects her "love". He does eventually fall truly in love with her, but things are complicated when she does things like kidnapping him, tying him to a chair and keeping him drugged for an entire week, to ensure that he'd stay "safe".
  • Please Put Some Clothes On: His default reaction to Yuno being Pants-Free, in a Slippery Swimsuit, or undressing right in front of him, though never verbally.
  • Porn Stash: Yuki has one under his bed. Yuno found it.
  • Properly Paranoid: There are multiple times when Yuki is terrified of Yuno's violent and stalkerish behavior. Not that he's wrong in being afraid of her.
  • The Protagonist: He is the first and main protagonist in the series.
  • Protagonist Journey to Villain: He slides down the scale as the series continues. It gets somewhat subverted in the finale, as he ends up saving the 3rd-world from Yuno and the Survival Game.
  • Protectorate: Yuno's top priority is to protect Yuki at any cost.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The timid, cowardly and passive Blue Oni to Yuno's aggressive, passionate and sociopathic Red Oni.
  • Sanity Slippage: Through the series Yuki tries his best to stay clear of the violence going on around him, but finally gives in after the death of his parents. But the final straw is when his friends tell him he can't resurrect the dead even as god, which had been how he justified the Necessary Evil of killing the rivals in the game. Unable to accept this, he ends up killing his friends when they stand in his way.
  • Say My Name: Yuki escapes from Yuno's Lotus-Eater Machine by turning down the opportunity to go stargazing with his parents and screaming Yuno's name.
  • Shared Family Quirks: All of the spineless traits come from his dad, which is balanced with his mom's niceness.
  • Shrinking Violet: He's very shy and withdrawn. Part of his Character Development involves standing up for himself, on his own.
  • Spanner in the Works: He hijacks the entire future of the third Survival game when he follows Yuno to the 3rd-world, since his data entries in the second game show up in 3rd-world's John Balks's diary and warn him of the incoming disasters. It changes every diary holder's future and gives them happy endings.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Yuno calls him "Yuki" or "Yukki", depending on which version you're reading. Also, in messages and diary entries, ユッキ― is normally used, which is romanized as "Yukkii".
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Yuno, since one of them needs to die to complete the Survival Game, and leaving the game unfinished too long will cause the end of the world and they'll both die. At the end, 1st-world Yuno dies to ensure 2nd-world Yuki lives, but her memories are given to her 3rd-world self and she becomes god to be with Yuki.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Yuki is a male version of his mother.
  • Strong Girl, Smart Guy: Yukiteru is The Strategist while Yuno commits the violence.
  • Supporting Protagonist: He's the point of view character, but the one who takes more action in the story is Yuno. Later he Takes A Level In Badass and becomes more prominent for the plot.
  • Tears of Fear: He tends to cry in fear often in the beginning.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Hey, it was bound to happen eventually. He ditches the darts in favor of a sub-machine gun, for one.
  • Tragic Dream: Yukiteru's dream is to someday go stargazing with his parents together as a family, but that dream became impossible ever since they got a divorce and died. When he is trapped inside Yuno's Lotus-Eater Machine, Yukiteru almost gets his dream but at the end, he chooses Yuno instead.
  • The Unfettered: Becomes this throughout the course of the series.
  • Unholy Matrimony: With Yuno, after he becomes nearly as crazy and murderous as her.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: He doesn't care how many people he has to kill, as long as it ends with him becoming the next god so he can fix the world and then resurrect his victims. Too bad it doesn't work that way.
  • Villain Protagonist: Becomes this later during the series. After Yuki loses his parents, he becomes willing to kill his enemies in very cruel and nasty ways. Despite this, Yuki doesn't actually want to kill people and wants to bring everyone back to life once he becomes god, not knowing it's impossible.
  • Weak, but Skilled: For a long time he's not much of a fighter, but Yuki is among the most skilled at using his diary both in and out of combat.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Later, Yuki does really extreme things like tricking Eighth and massacring her orphans in the name of becoming God and bring everyone who died back to life.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Yuno gets called out by Yuki all the time, but especially for kidnapping him and keeping him locked up for a week to "protect" him.
  • Would Hit a Girl: While being held captive by Yuno, he gives her a well-deserved slap. Not hard enough to leave a bruise, but hard enough to let her know that he's tired of what she was doing.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: Yuki is rather reluctant to kill Reisuke due to the fact he is 4 years old.
  • You're Insane!: To Yuno after she tells she will kill him so she can go back in time again.

    Yuno Gasai - The Second 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/491da69da3747076afcfa0b1c92e4133.jpg
Voiced by: Tomosa Murata (JP), Brina Palencia (EN)

An insane, violent, sociopathic, nihilistic classmate of Yuki's who's obsessively stalking him, claiming to be madly in love with him. Her "Yukiteru Diary" tells her what's happening to Yuki at every 10-minute interval, and won't show anything unrelated to him except for her own dead end. Since Yuki's diary records everything except what happens to him, the two of them presumably make a formidable team. If only she was more comforting to be around...


  • Abduction Is Love: Yuno drugs and kidnaps Yuki to protect him until July 28th, chaining him to a chair. Yuki eventually breaks free thanks to his friends, and abandons Yuno. It doesn't last though.
  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: Yuno is typically armed with a variety of kitchen implements, but the damage she does with them is out of this world.
  • Accidental Murder: When Yuno finally got fed up of Saika's abuse, she locked Saika and Ushio in the same cage Saika locked her, hoping they would realize how she felt and change back to their old selves. They didn't, and eventually died of hunger.
    • She also does this with 1st-world Yuki, in a sense. She backs out of their Suicide Pact, thinking that she could bring him back to life after becoming God. However, it turns out that she can't, making her unintentionally responsible for his death as well.
  • Action Girlfriend: Almost immediately after stumbling into The Game, Yukiteru encounters Yuno who makes it her top priority to protect him from harm and is the one who does most of the fighting in the beginning. The only thing that stops her from being a straight example is the fact that she's a psychotic Yandere.
  • Aggressive Submissive: She's very direct and aggressive towards Yukiteru, but when she finally "becomes one" with him she becomes super-shy.
  • The All-Solving Hammer:
    • Yuno often resorts to pulling out her knife to deal with troubling situations.
    • She uses a literal hammer to Screw Destiny and smash apart the space-time continuum to rescue Yukiteru at the end of the manga.
  • All Take and No Give: The true nature of her relationship with Yuki. Yuki uses Yuno as a guard whilst Yuno uses Yuki as emotional support. Eventually Yuno acknowledges this and tries to convince herself and Yuki that their love has been fake, and they have been merely using one another, in the hope that he gives up on her and she can kill him to go back in time without regrets. When that doesn't work, she traps him in a Lotus-Eater Machine where she doesn't exist but otherwise Yuki has everything he ever hoped for. He manages to break free, apparently because their love started out fake but became something deeper over time.
  • Alternate Self: The Yuno who's crazy for Yuki is from the first timeline, who jumped to the second timeline after becoming a god and killed 2nd-World Yuno to take her place. She commits suicide to let Yukiteru become Deus' successor, and Murmur saves a copy of her memories which she gives to 3rd-World Yuno, who that timeline's Deus chooses as his successor so she can be together with him.
  • Always Save The Boy: The only person Yuno cares about is Yuki and she will do anything to protect him. Anyone else can just die.
  • Anti-Villain: The Woobie variety. Yuno certainly is a batshit crazy Yandere, but she can come off as sympathetic due to her past and the circumstances she must face in the series. However, many of her actions go beyond justifiable and make it hard to actually sympathize with her up until perhaps her Heel Realization and suicide at the end.
  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: She already became god by winning the Survival Game in the 1st-world. Her 3rd-world self also becomes god.
  • Attractiveness Isolation: In her backstory in the anime. The manga on the other hand averts this; it is shown that before the main story started several of her schoolmates tried to ask her out, but she turned them all down.
  • Ax-Crazy: Subverted. The series absolutely wants you to think that Yuno is an example of this trope, but as her backstory and true motivation gets revealed, she becomes a little more... complicated.
  • An Axe to Grind: Her most iconic weapon, probably due to the fact it's a good way to show how psychotic and violent she is.
  • Badass Adorable:
    • She's beautiful, adorably Moe, extremely in love with Yukiteru and incredibly skilled in combat.
    • And the 3rd-world Yuno appears to have inherited the 1st-world Yuno's skill in combat, if her brief (and seemingly one-sided) fight against Akise in the Redial OVA is any indication.
  • Badass in Distress: During her fight against Sixth, Yuno is taken captive by Tsubaki.
  • Badass Long Robe: During the final battle, she wears a black robe.
  • Bandage Babe: Yuno is wearing multiple bandages during the battle versus Seventh in Chapter 33.
  • The Baroness: She's definitely got the Sexpot type appearance and age but has the fear factor of the Rosa Klebb type. She's young and attractive, and yearns for Yukiteru. Yuki himself though is downright terrified of her, but she kills herself to let Yuki live.
  • Battle Couple: She and Yuki develop into this. As their relationship grows and Yuki becomes more competent in combat, they work together to take down their enemies.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Yuno's devotion to Yukiteru stems from him jokingly making a marriage proposal to her right after she killed her parents, spurring her into devoting her future to him.
  • Big Bad Friend: In the last few chapters, Yuno becomes Yukiteru's final enemy after he refuses to kill her and he discovers she is actually the Yuno from an Alternate Timeline.
  • Body Backup Drive: After being Driven to Suicide, Mur Mur and Deus from the 3rd-world implant first Yuno's memories into her still-living 3rd-world self's mind so she can become god and save Yukiteru .
  • Bodyguard Crush: Yuki uses Yuno as his bodyguard during the Survival Game, while Yuno is glad to use this as an excuse to be with him all the time.
  • Break His Heart to Save Him: Sort of. When she finds that she can't bring herself to kill 2nd-world Yuki, she desperately tries to make him hate her, even claiming that they never really loved each other, so that he will accept the Lotus-Eater Machine she prepares for him. However, while she does do this to keep him alive, it isn't especially noble since she was the one trying to kill him so that she could repeat the game with his 3rd-world incarnation (which she still plans on doing). Then again, she ultimately doesn't go through with it, and kills herself so that he can win the game and live.
  • Broken Ace: She's smart, beautiful, diligent, and an extremely dangerous Ax-Crazy Yandere.
  • Broken Bird: Yuno is incredibly broken from severe parental abuse, accidentally killing her parents, going through the survival game once before, losing the only person that gave her a reason to live (1st-world Yukiteru), finding out the hard way that not even Deus's powers can bring the dead back to life, and having to go through it all again, murdering her younger 2nd-world self in order to take her place.
  • Cassandra Truth: When Yuki refuses to listen to her warnings about Tsubaki and her followers.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower:
    • In the manga at least, by the time of the last fight with Eleventh in the 2nd-world her fighting experience made her strong enough to cut grown men (in this case Eleventh's mooks) in half with a sword. In one case she is shown cutting a man in half while holding her sword with one hand.
    • The 3rd-world's Yuno appears to have inherited this to some degree, if her fight against Akise is any indication. Though whether or not she inherited the strength as well as the agility remains to be seen.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She won't let anyone, male or female, get close to her beloved Yuki. Yuki's mother is a notable lucky one, since she was nice to Yuno and approved of their relationship.
  • Clothing Damage: When Tsubaki orders her followers to strip and gang-rape Yuno.
  • Couldn't Find a Pen: When the first Yuno performs a time leap to the 2nd-world and kills her second self, the latter writes "Help!" on the wall using her own blood.
  • Creepy Child: A 14 year old girl who appears cute and childish on the surface, but is actually extremely murderous and more intelligent than she lets on.
  • Creepy Monotone: In the English dub.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Pink hair and eyes.
  • Custom Uniform: A weird case of the main teens, only she bothers to wear the school uniform. It's part of her model student facade. The reason one can be sure that it's the school uniform is that many are seen wearing it in the epilogue.
  • Cute and Psycho: Her normal appearance, high pitch voice, and "cute" mannerisms only help underline how nuts she is when she snaps and makes her even creepier.
  • Cute Bruiser: How she can lop off body part after body part with just kitchen cutlery is anyone's guess.
  • Dark Action Girl: She's one of the strongest fighters in the game and also a terrifying psychopath.
  • Dead Person Impersonation: She impersonates herself!
  • Death Seeker: Not outright stated, but Yuno heavily implies that she wants to die in order to ensure Yukiteru wins the game in the 2nd-world, rather than win it herself and repeat the whole scenario a third time. She only tries to kill him when he absolutely refuses to take her life, and she decides to repeat the game in the 3rd-world for another shot at setting him up to win while spending more time with him again. And even then, when Yukiteru told her to just stab him and be the winner of the 2nd-world's game, she decides to just kill herself anyway.
  • Declaration of Protection: She swears to protect Yukiteru at any cost.
  • Despair Event Horizon: After backing out of her and 1st-world Yuki's Suicide Pact, thereby winning the game, she discovers that she can't bring him back to life, sending her completely over the edge to become the psychotic Yandere we've known throughout the series.
  • Deuteragonist: She's the second protagonist.
  • Devoted to You: Once he truly falls in love with her, Yukiteru will do anything for Yuno and she becomes the person most important to him after his parents die. He even rejects his ideal world with both of his parents alive and together because he can't be happy in a world without Yuno. After her death, Yukiteru spends 10,000 years mourning Yuno's death, without even bothering to try and create a new world with his God powers.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: Yuno dies in Yuki's arms after she stabs herself.
  • Dissonant Serenity: She's famous for this. She can do the worst things while wearing the brightest smile on her face.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Saika's abuse made Yuno snap and she (unintentionally) killed Saika and Ushio.
  • Doppelgänger Replacement Love Interest: 1st-world Yuno dies, but Yukiteru at the end gets together with her 3rd World counterpart, who was given her memories. As a bonus, since her counterpart had a happier life to due Yuki's intervention in that timeline, she isn't an Ax-Crazy Yandere.
  • Driven to Suicide: Unwilling to let Yuki die a second time, Yuno stabs herself to ensure he wins the survival game.
  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: In Episode 11, when she and Yuki are taken into the police station for questioning her eyes go dull when she decides to try to find a weapon.
  • Easily Forgiven: Despite all the things she does, Yukki will always forgive her in the end.
  • Elevator Snare: In their first meeting in the series, Yuno forces her way into an elevator, corners the terrified Yuki, and then gives him his First Kiss. Cue the Uncomfortable Elevator Moment, at least for Yuki.
  • Engaging Conversation: In the backstory, Yuno, after a bit of dialogue with Yuki, states that she wants to become his bride. He brushes it off and jokingly accepts, believing she was only kidding. She wasn't.
  • Evil Laugh: She can't help herself from this after she successfully manipulates Yuki into killing Hinata.
  • Evil Orphan: Saika and Ushio weren't her biological parents, they adopted her.
  • Evil Redhead: A psychopathic murderer with pink hair.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Much like B.B. Hood/Bulleta, Yuno goes from squeaky and adorable to guttural and menacing whenever she's incredibly pissed.
  • Expy: Shares similar traits to Megumi Shimizu from Shiki. Both are Yandere. Both are Stalker with a Crush. Both have their 'beloved" Yuuki-Kun. They even have the same hair and eye color.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: She's got the looks of an angel, sure; but for the sake of her beloved Yukki, she thinks like everyone else is nothing but dead weight.
  • Fanservice Pack: Yuno went from having an appropriately-sized chest for a middle schooler (fairly small in the beginning) to having large breasts in the course of about two chapters.
  • Faux Affably Evil: At school she's seen as a School Idol and is very nice to everyone around her. But when you get to know her, you realize how messed up she is.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: Uses it to impress Yukiteru's mother. How feminine she is is up for debate though, considering her fallback plan if that didn't work was to use her "tools".
  • First-Name Basis: The fact that she refers to Yukiteru by a diminutive form of his first name demonstrates just how affectionate she is toward him. Prior to her feelings becoming so intense, she referred to him in the normal Japanese manner by using only his surname. This becomes a huge plot point later, after we learn that she has two diaries, because each diary refers to him by one of those names respectively. This is because the Yuno we know went back in time, killed the Yuno from this timeline before she switched to calling Yukiteru by his pet name, and kept her diary.
  • Forceful Kiss: Steals Yukiteru's First Kiss during their first meeting in the series.
  • For the Evulz: Some of her killings can be best reasoned as this.
  • Freudian Excuse: Her mother Saika abused her, going as far as to lock her in a cage where she left Yuno to starve. This made Yuno snap and she ended unintentionally killing her parents by leaving them to starve at her cage. She became obsessed with Yuki because when he accepted her marriage proposal he gave her a new reason to live. Then she had to go through the Survival Game and she lost the 1st-world Yuki. All this made her into the crazy Yandere we know.
  • Gas Chamber: In a surprising change from the manga, Yuno traps Akise, Mao, and Kosaka in a room which is filling with gas. In the manga, she filled it with concrete.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Subverted. They make her seem cute and innocent at first, but she quickly shows her true colours later on.
  • Girl with Psycho Weapon: Though, unlike other Yanderes, she doesn't seem to have an iconic weapon. She is most commonly portrayed with the axe that she wields in the battle against the Sixth, though.
  • God Couple: Her 3rd-world self with Yuki.
  • God Is Dead: She had already become a god in the 1st-world, but dies by committing suicide to ensure Yuki lives.
  • God Is Evil: The psycho Yandere was the one who became a god in the 1st-world.
  • God Was My Copilot: For Yuki. Unlike most cases of this trope, an evil influence. However she has little power in this world.
  • Good Girl Gone Bad: Long ago, Yuno was a really good little girl, until her adoptive mother began to abuse her and keep her in a cage for not living up to her expectations. And then Yuno went bad after (unintentionally) killing both her parents. And it just went downhill from there.
  • Go Through Me: Yuno is more than willing to put herself on the line to protect Yuki.
  • Go Out with a Smile: She dies smiling at Yuki as she remarks that he had gotten so much better at kissing, happy that Yuki gave her a place to belong.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Her eyes sometimes appear like this.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She already showed signs of this before the games began. It's very evident that she's jealous of Yuki's friends and even though they don't need to die to complete the game she tricks Yuki into killing them all and beheads Akise herself.
  • Guile Heroine: Has an impressive bout against the Twelfth by taking advantage of his heightened sense of hearing.
  • Hair Decorations: Her red ribbons.
  • Heartwarming Orphan: Zigzagged. 3rd-world self is a genuine Nice Girl expect for being a Stalker with a Crush.
  • Heel Realization: Realizes just how warped she's become once she sees her family in the 3rd-world come together again to protect her younger self. However, she believes herself to be too far gone for redemption and makes a suicidal move to try to kill them all with the threat of Kurusu shooting her dead. She eventually settles on stabbing herself and letting Yukiteru live instead.
  • Hot Goddess: She's the one who became God in the 1st-world and also quite attractive.
  • Hyper-Awareness: She became suspicious that her and Yuki's food was poisoned... by feeling that the cherry tomatoes were slightly heavier than they were before they had been washed... while balancing one on her fork.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: She has much more experience in the Diary Game than Yukiteru does and she does most of the fighting.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: She says she's willing to die for Yuki to ensure he wins the game, and even offers to let him kill her. In the end, when Yukiteru flat out suggests she should kill him so she can have a place in this world, she fatally stabs herself instead.
  • I'll Kill You!: "ARU AKISE, YOU WILL DIE HERE AND NOW!"
  • Image Song: "Red Love" for her Yandere self and "Happy Love" for her normal self.
  • Indifferent Beauty: Yuno is aware of how popular she is at school, but she doesn't care.
  • In Love with Love: Her obsession with Yuki is an extremely warped version of this. Yuno is only using him to sate her dependency issues and she just wants to make sure he'll marry her so she can have some hope for the future. She even admits that she would have been fine with anyone as long as she could emotionally depend on them, which is why she can so easily decide to murder the 2nd-world Yuki and repeat the game with the 3rd-world Yuki. That said, she ultimately finds that she can't bring herself to kill 2nd-world Yuki (having come to genuinely love him), nor repeat the game of with his 3rd-world self, and instead kills herself to break the cycle.
  • Interrupted Suicide: She actually tries to kill herself seconds before her death, provoking the 3rd-world Kurusu into firing a bullet at her. Mur Mur saves her.
  • It's All About Me: For most of the series, Yuno's motivation isn't "protect Yuki", it's "make sure me and Yuki end up together". Not even her Alternate Self is exempt from this.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: While Yuno always had an obsessive desire to protect Yuki, she was initially able to keep her Ax-Crazy tendencies in check. It was actually Yuno who convinced Yuki to seek out his classmates for help when Minene was bombing their school. But after they capture him and try to hand him over to Minene, this causes Yuno to snap in lose any faith of trusting any outside parties.
  • Karma Houdini: She does a lot of things that should be unforgivable, such as trying to kill innocent people, kidnapping Yukki, manipulating him into killing his friends, and generally being a danger to everyone around her. Yukki, for the most part, seems to realize how crazy she is, but for some reason, always forgives her.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: She is apparently skilled at kendo, as she wields a katana to devastating affect during one arc.
  • Knife Nut: The knife is one of her main weapons.
  • Kubrick Stare: After Yuki discovers the room in her house that contains the corpses of her parents and her 2nd-world self, Yuno gives Yuki a seriously terrifying glare through his letterbox - while wishing him a good night.
  • Lack of Empathy: To everyone other than Yukiteru. When Tsubaki told her that she was going to destroy the world after becoming god Yuno's only gripe with that was that it would also kill Yukiteru. Late in the series she outright states that she doesn't care how many more people she'll kill in the future, because they are all useless pawns and because they'll be revived anyway after she goes back in time again (ignoring the fact that technically they would be different people).
  • Lady Macbeth: She usually encourages Yuki to brutally murder their opponents without hesitation and until he resolves to do it, she does all the dirty work.
  • Last Kiss: Before dying, Yuno asks Yuki to kiss her one last time.
  • Little Miss Almighty: She's only 14 years old and she already became the god of the 1st-world.
  • Longing Look: Her intoxicated expression as she promises to "protect" Yuki, also known as the "Yandere Trance", which has since reached Memetic Mutation status.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Or was she already crazy to begin with?
  • Love Makes You Evil: At times, the lengths at which she goes to show her admiration comes across as something that can only be thought of by a monster.
  • Mad Love: With Yukiteru. Her psychotic obsession and clingy and homicidal tendencies make him find her creepy and he would actually rather stay away from her at the beginning, although Yuno would never let him do that. On the other hand, her murderous devotion to him and her combat skills make her a reliable bodyguard, and Yuno even says she doesn't care if Yuki is only using her for his protection as long as he stays with her.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Throughout the series, especially her Batman Gambit in Episode 22.
  • Mask of Sanity: She pretends to be a normal, innocent girl, when she's actually an Axe-Crazy sociopath.
  • Mood-Swinger: She often shifts between lovesick, psychotic, and in rare occurrences, cold and emotionless.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Throughout the whole series.
    • Early on, she and Yuki visit a pool where Yuno loses her swimsuit.
    • Later on, Yuno chains Yuki to a chair. This requires her to attend to all his, ahem, "duties". And on top of all that, she spends the entire time in nothing but a bra and panties.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: Murder is her preferred way to deal with problems.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: In her own words "Everyone who comes between me and Yuki can just die!" Probably comes with the whole Yandere thing.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Has a Major one after being rebuked by her past self in the 3rd-world. Yuno actually starts shaking once she realizes how much she had changed when she lost all of her hope for the future, and seriously looks frightened at what she's become.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Yuno will take any chance she gets to hug and kiss Yuki.
  • Not Good with Rejection: She doesn't take well Yuki rejecting her at all.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Though there were earlier hints, Fridge Logic tells you she has been displaying this the entire story. We find out she has played the survival game through before, so either she pretends not to know, or has repressed it completely.
  • Odango Hair: Her 3rd-world self at the beach in the Redial OVA.
  • Official Couple: With Yuki.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: She can appear out of nowhere. Makes sense.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: If they aren't Yuki, she doesn't care what happens to them and will kill anyone who gets in her way. She is responsible for the destruction of the 1st-world since she abandoned it after becoming its god in favor of replaying the survival game again.
  • Only Friend: She considers herself the only friend Yuki needs. She's perfectly fine with killing anything or anyone who may take his attention away from her.
  • Palm-on-Cheek Pose: Does this as she promises to "protect" Yuki. This example is popular for not being cute, but creepy instead - in fact this leads to an internet meme called "Ecstatic Yandere Pose".
  • Pants-Free: Yuno seems especially fond of this when there is an unconscious Yuki around.
  • Parental Neglect: Her adoptive father would work late hours and fail to notice her mother's escalating abuse.
  • Pitbull Dates Puppy: Yuno is a psychotic, violent and possessive Yandere and she usually forces her affections on the Extreme Doormat Yuki. Taken to an extreme when she kidnaps him, ties him to a chair and keeps him drugged for an entire week, to ensure that he'd stay "safe".
  • Poisonous Friend: She has killed, dismembered, schemed, plotted, manipulated and done a lot of shit to people with little to no regard just because of Yuki.
  • Properly Paranoid: Zigzagged. She's extremely suspicious of the people around her, and has no problem killing innocent people on the off-chance that they may threaten her relationship with Yuki, and she even drugs and restrains Yuki for a week to keep him "safe". However, her paranoia has repeatedly turned out to be spot-on in the Survival Game, such as suspecting the sixth of being a Manipulative Bitch (she was), refusing to eat cherry tomatoes because they were slightly heavier than they were before being washed (the fifth had injected poison into them), and assuming that one of Yuki's new friends was collaborating with whoever sent the dogs after them (Hinata and Mao were both working for the tenth).
  • Property of Love: Yuno labels Yuki as her property and she won't let anyone take him away from her. Likewise, Yuno claims she belongs only to Yuki and she will let him use her for whatever he wants.
  • Psycho Sidekick: Emphasis on the psycho part.
  • Put the "Laughter" in "Slaughter": Yuno is prone to fits of maniacal laughter that show just how unhinged she is, particularly with killing things.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Down to her waist.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: About the relationship between her and Yuki when she finally acknowledges its true nature. While it did start off as that though, by the time she made this speech it had evolved into something more real.
  • Redemption Equals Death: Once she finally realizes how far she has gone and that she can't bring herself to kill Yuki after all, she stabs herself so Yuki can become god.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Sports red eyes sometimes, showing her Yandere nature.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The aggressive, passionate and sociopathic Red Oni to Yukiteru's timid, cowardly and passive Blue Oni.
  • Relationship Sabotage: One year prior to the series, she tried to do this to Yuki's relationship with Moe. However, Moe rejected Yuki's confession even without Yuno's interference.
  • Room Full of Crazy: An untouched room in Yuno's house that contains the corpses of her parents, and her second self who she murdered. Yuki finds it and ultimately changes the course of the game and the 2nd-world's timeline. Yuno eventually destroys the room and hides the evidence in a large pit behind her house.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Invoked. When she and Yuki are out of danger, she can act very cheerful and romantic. As of the rest of the time, well...
  • Satellite Love Interest: Played remarkably straight with disturbing effect. Funnily enough, considering what she is, it ends up being Tropes Are Not Bad. Justified in that Yuno really has nothing in her life outside of Yuki. He's the only thing that keeps her relatively balanced most of the time.
  • School Idol: She's described as a model student. She gets excellent grades, everybody likes her, and all the boys are crazy about her. Except the one she's stalking, of course.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Subverted in that they weren't technically her parents, and it wasn't what she desired. She even got to repent at the end.
  • Self-Proclaimed Love Interest: Ever since Yuki jokingly accepted her marriage proposal, Yuno actually believes they're engaged.
  • Self-Serving Memory: She usually represses and alters her memories in ways she feels more comfortable with to prevent herself from going completely insane.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Extremely Yuki-sexual. She even will love any world's Yuki just because they are Yuki.
  • Slasher Smile: Played with. The constant Moe Stare she sports on may as well be considered a Slasher Smile depending on context.
  • Slippery Swimsuit: Loses her bikini top during the Water-Park Episode.
  • Sour Supporter: She dislikes Tsubaki and keeps telling Yuki that they ought to just abandon her, but doesn't try to kill her and begrudgingly helps protect her when Yuki refuses to leave her. When Tsubaki turns on them, however, all bets are off.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Yuno spends most of her time following Yuki around. She also likes to break into his house and send him hundreds of emails over the course of an hour.
  • Stalking Is Love: While Yuki is freaked out by Yuno's stalking, since she's his only true ally, he must allow her to do it. Eventually, as he begins to go crazy, Yuki begins to accept her stalking more and more and at the end he even states that he fell in love with Yuno because "she was always by his side."
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: Yuno and Yuki have no future together, since one of them needs to die to complete the Survival Game, and leaving the game unfinished too long will cause the end of the world and they'll both die. At the end, 1st-world Yuno dies to ensure 2nd-world Yuki lives, but her memories are given to her 3rd-world self and she becomes god to be with Yuki.
  • The Starscream: Played with. When she and Yuki are the only ones left in the Survival Game, she becomes his final enemy and hunts him down, trying to kill him in order to become god and go back in time. However, she only does it after he refuses to kill her (which would eventually result in both of them dying anyway), and when they realize the depth of their feelings for each other, the situation reverses. Yuki had wanted her to kill him once he convinced her not to repeat past mistakes, but she surprises him by killing herself to ensure Yuki lives on.
  • Stepford Smiler: Extremely Type C. She's usually brightly smiling, but it only serves to mask the insanity that lies beneath it.
  • Straw Nihilist: To Yuno, everyone save for Yuki are dead weight and the world has no meaning without Yuki in it.
  • Strong Girl, Smart Guy: Yuno is the heavy hitter while Yukiteru is The Strategist.
  • Taking You with Me: Tries this when fighting Kurusu with the grenade Minene gave to Yuki, but it fails because the grenade turns out to be a flash grenade.
  • Terms of Endangerment: In the dub, she likes giving pet names to Yuki. Given her stalker nature, it comes off just as creepy as it is cute.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Her backstory in the 1st world. After years of horrific abuse at the hands of her mother, coupled with complete neglect from her father, she drugs and locks both of them in the cage her mother would use to punish her. She had hoped this would make them empathize with her and treat her better, but they end up starving to death, leaving her with no-one. She then becomes fixated on Yuki, survives the game with him, and after backing out of their Suicide Pact, discovers that she can't bring him back to life, thus losing the only important person left in her life. It's at this point that she snaps and her obsession with Yuki becomes violent and all-consuming.
  • The Trickster: A rare example of a crazy Yandere who doubles as this.
  • Tsundere: Surprisingly, Yuno plays this trope with her unique style after she decides to kill 2nd-world Yuki and tries to deny their love was real in the first place.
    Yuno: No, no no no! I've already abandoned this Yuki! I don't like him or anything. Not only that, I'm the one trying to kill him right now!
    Yuno's phone screen: Yuki said that he'd even die for me. I'm so happy!
  • Uncanny Valley Girl: She's seen as a School Idol in her school, but she is actually an Ax-Crazy Yandere who keeps her family's skeletal remains in a room in her house.
  • The Unfettered: She will do anything for Yuki, anything.
  • Ungrateful Bitch: She kills Akise in spite of him sparing her life when he had the upper hand.
  • Unholy Matrimony: After his corruption, she and Yuki become a couple of homicidal nutjobs.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Polar opposite of Yuki, in that her diary is almost completely useless except when paired with Yuki's, she's actually one of the strongest fighters. The only ones shown to best her in combat being Sevenths and Akise.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Yuno wasn't always such a psycho. When Yuki and Minene go three years to the past it turns out that despite her abuse, she still was a hopeful and idealistic girl who still believed she could be happy with her parents. It was the events of the Diary Game in the first world that shattered her sanity.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Has one towards the end of the manga when Yuki refuses to kill her, prompting her to try to kill him, leap back in time again to restart the game and kill herself again. She fails, realizing she cannot kill Yuki and seals him in a Lotus-Eater Machine to escape him. The final breakdown comes when she gets to see her 3rd-world self getting the love from her parents that she never got, and when Yuki escapes from the illusory world through The Power of Love.
  • Villain Protagonist: She's the female lead, but she's also completely willing to kill anyone and through the series, she does very cruel and nasty things to a lot of people. Subverted in the later chapters when she becomes Yuki's enemy. She doubles back on that after she kills herself instead of him, though.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: She's willing to kill anyone who does as much as to get within 10 feet of Yuki.
  • Wide Eyes and Shrunken Irises: Made much more apparent in the anime during her crazier moments.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Yuno wants to keep the universe in an eternal time loop, forever replaying the Diary game, as this is the only way she believes she can stay with Yuki. She wants this so desperately because Yuki is probably one of the only kind people in her life, and her sole reason for living. Even if that means destroying entire universes/timelines to do it.
  • Yandere: Though preceded by Yukako Yamagishi in Japanese media and Annie Wilkes in pop culture, Yuno has come to be recognized as the archetypal yandere. Bonus points for actually being named after one of the most yandere goddesses, Juno.
    • A significant turning point in her Character Development is when she realizes this and admits to Yuki that their relationship was one of convenience; she needed someone who would never (could never) abandon her, and he needed someone to protect him. Their current relationship only works because she's extremely screwed up, and her acknowledgement of this makes Yuno a thorough example of this character archetype. The archetype itself is never Reconstructed for obvious reasons, but her mental health improves and eventually she and Yuki get into a relationship, an actual relationship not based on fear. It's still a messed up one, and they're not exactly sane, but it's a start. Makes you wonder what would happen if they didn't live in a Crapsack World.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Unlike Yuki, she has no problem offing Reisuke, she even chased him around Yuki's house with a hammer.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: Every time her relationship with Yuki looks like it's going somewhere, fate always barges in. In the end, they finally defeat it.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is pink.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Later in the series, combined with a black lacy dress.

    Takao Hiyama - The Third 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3rd_1181.jpg
Voiced by: Jin Domon (JP), Jason Douglas (EN)

A teacher at Yuki's school who's secretly a serial killer. His "Murder Diary" gives him detailed information on the location of his intended victim, making it a powerful weapon for ruthlessly pursuing his target. However, it offers little protection.


  • Affably Evil: He seems to be a fairly decent guy when he's teaching middle school class to his students. It's little wonder few suspected him of being a Serial Killer.
  • Butt-Monkey: Surprisingly often. He is the first diary owner to get killed, he kept killing himself several times over when Mur Mur first tried to give him his diary, he fell victim to one of Minene's amplified sound bombs in Mosaic, appeared in a flashback chapter to be accidentally (and comically) speared in the back by Yuno, and was given an electric shock in Paradox. In the penultimate chapter, he's pinned to the ground as he's apprehended by Twelfth, and he can be seen in the back of one of the final group shots, running from a few pursuers. In the anime, he's in jail. Mur Mur wasn't too surprised that he was the first to go.
  • Coat, Hat, Mask: A practical version, as the costume he wears is not only bulletproof but somehow also bombproof. This comes in handy when Minene attacks him in Mosaic, as she quickly learns that her usual battle tactics are useless against him.
  • Establishing Character Moment: We get to see one of his victims begging him not to kill her before cutting to a Gory Discretion Shot of her blood spattering the concrete. This lets us know what a twisted individual he is.
  • Evil Redhead: His red hair is one of the few things his murder gear doesn't cover up.
  • Friendly Enemy: With Twelfth, who's seen visiting him in prison in the 3rd-world's epilogue.
  • Image Song: "THIRD/Antares Cr302".
  • Implacable Man: While he doesn't get a chance to show this off in his brief encounter with Yukiteru and Yuno, he proved himself to be this in Mosaic/Episode 10 in the anime during his confrontation with Minene. He kept coming after her unrelentingly and wasn't even slowed down by the bombs exploding around him and by being shot at. Pity that his diary is nowhere near as invulnerable as the man himself.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: The few times we see him without his mask.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: In his murder gear.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: Killed off within the first chapters and first episode to demonstrate the rules and consequences of the survival game. Doubles as a Red Shirt.
  • Serial Killer: Though his experience when it came to killing didn't end up helping him much in the game.
  • Weapon of Choice: A machete.

Voiced by: Masahiko Tanaka (JP), Robert McCollum (EN)

A police officer who wishes to stop the other crazy people with diaries. His "Case Diary" gives him information on all future crimes in his district as though he had already investigated them. He introduces himself early on as an ally to Yuki and Yuno, forming the Future Alliance.


  • Alliterative Name: Keigo Kurusu.
  • Batman Gambit: He sets up Yuki and Yuno (at least the latter, anyway) to commit a crime by having both taken to the police station, having Yuki brought in for interrogation, and playing a game of Russian Roulette with him, knowing full well just how Yuno would react to Yuki being in danger.
  • Bulletproof Vest: Worn as part of his plan to incriminate Yukiteru and Yuno. He fully expects Yuno to shoot at him. He just didn't expect her to shoot him in the head, blowing off his ear.
  • The Commissioner Gordon: As soon as he meets Yuki and Yuno he tries to work with them to go after and identify the other future diary users. Though this is subverted later on.
  • Death Equals Redemption: Apologizes for betraying Yukiteru before he disappears.
  • Decoy Protagonist: At first early in the series he seemed to fulfill the role of the Tritagonist of the series, but then when turns on Yuki and Yuno and becomes another antagonist, Minene becomes the true tritagonist of the series.
  • Defective Detective: We find out that he's so busy with work he hasn't been able to spend time with his wife and son. Not only that, but his son is in the hospital, leading to his Face–Heel Turn (assuming he wasn't plotting it from the very beginning).
  • Dirty Cop: Uses the power of the police force to arrest Yukiteru and Yuno, then uses the power of his Future Diary to frame them for the murder of the Tenth.
  • Driven to Suicide: He kills himself by destroying his Diary.
  • Expy: Keigo is a Composite Character of Shuichi Kitaoka and Masashi Sudo.
  • Face–Heel Turn: To save his dying son.
  • Image Song: "Running For Your Life".
  • Logical Weakness: Kurusu's diary is the Case Diary, so as long as he's chasing down his suspects, he'll continue to get info on their next moves. Rather than trying to take him down directly, Minene goes to Nishijima and informs him that Kurusu was responsible for murdering Tenth and framing Yuki and Yuno. Once Nishijima arrests him, Kurusu loses the authority to continue his investigations, and thus his diary stops recording future events.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Implied to have been influencing events and manipulating others for a decent amount of time after his introduction, starting with letting Minene go free from the Omekata Temple.
  • Passing the Torch: In the anime, Kurusu leaves a record of the survival game to Nishijima, including the defunct diaries of the dead owners.
  • Perma-Stubble: Subtle but there, going with his normal "detective" appearance.
  • Russian Roulette: Plays a game of this with Yukiteru, in order to provoke Yuno to attack him.
  • Scars Are Forever: He gets his ear shot off by Yuno.
  • Smoking Is Cool: As most detectives in anime are prone to.
  • Sweet Tooth: Downs his coffee with a lot of sugar cubes.
  • Take Care of the Kids: Before eliminating himself he asks Minene to look after his son.
  • Too Clever by Half: Subverted, Kurusu attempted to bait Yuno into shooting him while he was secretly wearing a Bullet Proof Vest to implicate her and Yuki. Kurusu didn't account for the possibility that Yuno would go for a headshot first, and even he admits that he got lucky that he only lost an ear in that gambit.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He betrays Yukiteru and Yuno in order to save his son.
  • What Could Have Been: In-universe example. According to Deus he was supposed to be among one of the final players of the game and not supposed to find out about his son's illness until much later. It turns out that his earlier demise was actually orchestrated by Mur Mur.

    Reisuke Houjou - The Fifth

Voiced by: Asami Sanada (JP), Lindsay Seidel (EN)

A 4-year-old boy who is left an orphan in the same incident that led to the Sixth's death. He is eager to prove himself to be a "super elite". His "Hyper Vision Diary" is a coloring book that displays pictures and summaries of three major events each day. It gives him plenty of time to plan his daily strategy, but it's not too helpful for predicting the immediate future.


  • Blush Sticker: Has permanent ones on his cheeks.
  • Cheerful Child: In Paradox, since his parents aren't killed.
    • In the 3rd-world for the same reasons and with the both of them being better parents.
  • Creepy Child: A little boy with a very diabolical mind.
  • Cute and Psycho: A cute little 4-year-old boy who enjoys talking to his hand puppets, drawing pictures, and using his magical coloring book to commit murders.
  • Enfant Terrible: An adorable 4-year-old who uses his magic picture diary to adorably kill people.
  • Evil Orphan: Since Yuno killed his parents.
  • Evil Redhead: His hair is red and he is quite creepy.
  • Freudian Excuse: We see that Reisuke's parents weren't a happy family like we were made to believe. His parents were often fighting and he would be left in the corner of the room by himself. He was seriously happy being taken care of by Yuki's mother, and in the 3rd-world where Reisuke's parents didn't join the cult, and therefore weren't fighting all the time, Reisuke's ends up as a normal child, so his parents are the cause of his creepy tendencies.
  • Go Out with a Smile: He dies smiling after Yuno kills him, which actually satisfies him.
  • Graceful Loser: Reisuke is very satisfied with the fact that Yuno is the one who defeats him and he even tells her to win The Game before she kills him. His Diary reflects his last thoughts: "Hojou Reisuke is killed by Gasai Yuno. DEAD END. . . But I'm very happy!"
  • Hand Puppet: He carries a pair of hand puppets around with him, which he talks to as though they were real.
  • Image Song: "Perfect Trap".
  • Infant Immortality: Played with, since as a player in the survival game to become god he has a chance of becoming a more literal example of this but if he doesn't win he would be a subversion.
  • Kid Sidekick: 3rd-World Reisuke to Akise in Redial.
  • Leitmotif: Chiptunes.
  • Nightmare Fuel Coloring Book: His Future Diary is a coloring book that shows him how to commit murder.
  • Pet the Dog: He seriously enjoyed his time at Yuki's place (despite how twisted he viewed it as) and refused to put Yuki's mom in danger of his hide and seek game.
  • Revenge: His trying to kill Yuno; it's played with as while he does consider the fact that Yuno inadvertently killed his parents, he quickly brushes it off—but in Mosaic he reveals that he really does love his parents despite what happens.
  • Slasher Smile: A master of this. Particularly in the anime's second opening.
  • Trap Master: His main way of trying to kill Yuki and Yuno. He uses the entries in his future diary to plan out deadly traps such as poison gas to electrocution.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Comes with being an unstable 4-year-old who is in a game that revolves around killing people.
  • Villainous Crush: Despite his attempts of trying to kill Yuno, he quickly grows fond of her during his stay at Yuki's home. By the time he dies, his diary tells us that he's happy that Yuno killed him.
  • Weak, but Skilled: His diary only shows three entries for the day during the morning, noon, and night. Despite that, it has a certain advantage of giving Reisuke all three entries at the same time, which allows him ample time to carefully plot his next move, as well as some pictures drawn by him, giving him some source material other than writing.

    Tsubaki Kasugano - The Sixth 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/6th_2268.jpg
Voiced by: Eri Sendai (JP), Kate Bristol (EN)

The young priestess for the Omekata cult, who supposedly possesses clairvoyant powers. She has been imprisoned in the cult's temple her entire life because of her poor eyesight. Her parents were the founders of the cult, and after their deaths (or better said, their murders) she became its leader of sorts. Her "Clairvoyant Diary" is a scroll that records what every worshipper in the cult sees, giving her much greater range than most other Diary Holders. While it provides a large amount of information, the scroll is also cumbersome and slow to use, making it difficult for her to react immediately to changes.


  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Her red eyes in the manga were changed to purple in the anime.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Yuno chops off her left hand, therefore she can't handle the heavy "Clairvoyant Diary" and is open for Yuki's definitive attack with his darts.
  • Attempted Rape: Tsubaki orders the cult members to strip and gang-rape the captive Yuno, in an attempt to lure the escaped Yukiteru out. He pulls a Big Damn Heroes and stops her.
  • Being Tortured Makes You Evil: She was throughly abused by the Omekatas, and ended in mentally/emotionally collapsing.
  • Berserker Tears: Tsubaki cries these when her diary is destroyed in the manga right after she sees her old handball.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She appears a Yamato Nadeshiko at first, but she is actually a Manipulative Bitch who is planning to destroy the world.
  • Blind Seer: Her supposed powers of clairvoyancy make up for her poor eyesight. However, it's subverted when it's revealed her clairvoyant powers are a lie.
  • Broken Bird: Losing her parents and being repeatedly gang raped has left her as an angry and sour girl who wants to destroy the world.
  • Chekhov's Gun: Yukiteru finds her lost handball and throws it in the air, foiling the powers of her diary and letting him destroy it, killing Tsubaki.
  • Cute and Psycho: She seems at first to be a Yamato Nadeshiko, but then we see that her backstory of orphanhood and sexual slavery drove her completely insane.
  • Decoy Damsel: She plays the false role of a Damsel in Distress in order to easily lure in Yuki and turn him against Yuno, using his habit to quickly trust people against him.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Crossed in her Back Story, after her Tragic Keepsake disappears, thus she has no way to keep her sanity in between all of the abuse the Omekatas subject her to.
  • Evil Orphan: After her parents were killed and she went mad from being used as a Sex Slave for the Omekata Cult.
  • Expy: She's basically a genderflipped version of Miyuki Tezuka.
  • Fan Disservice: How do we find out about her Sex Slave deal? Through a flashback that starts with a barely pubescent Tsubaki lying naked on the floor, shivering and terrified, right before she's gang-raped by the men of the Omekata cult. Additionally, the scene where she decides to go the Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds has her lying naked on the floor, murmuring madly about her purpose.
  • Freudian Excuse: She's a manipulative Bitch in Sheep's Clothing who wants to become god so she can destroy the world, but anyone would be as damaged as her after being repeatedly gang raped by an evil cult that keeps you prisoner.
  • Glass Cannon: The "Clairvoyant Diary". She can use it to record what her cult members see and thus has a huge range, but it's very slow and hard to use. It also presents the largest target, which is problematic when a single hit from one of Yuki's darts is enough to count it as destroyed.
  • Go Look at the Distraction: Yuki takes advantage of the fact her diary shows what her followers are looking at by throwing a ball then throwing a dart to destroy her diary when they're all looking the other way.
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: She pulls out a pipe and smokes on it when Yuno falls victim to a Distress Ball right after killing the Twelfth and this allows her to her trap them, Kurusu and Minene inside the Omekata temple.
  • Hair Decorations: Her red ribbon.
  • Hime Cut: Long hair all around, even bangs and sidelocks shows her status as a miko and Yamato Nadeshiko looks. One side of the bangs hanging down in front of one eye hints that she herself is not even either.
  • Image Song: "Cries Of Avici (6)".
  • Manipulative Bitch: Tries to manipulate Yuki, Yuno, Kurusu, Minene, and Hirasaka for her own benefit.
  • Mask of Sanity: It doesn't take too long for it to slip.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: This should have been really obvious.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: She wants to become god so she can destroy the entire world.
  • Omniscient Council of Vagueness: The leader.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Her right eye is almost always covered by her hair. In the anime it is also perpetually closed after she is imprisoned by the cult, perhaps implying that it is missing or nonfunctional. In the short scenes of her as a child she has both eyes open.
  • Phony Psychic: Tsubaki doesn't really have clairvoyant powers; it was all a lie made up by her parents.
  • Purple Eyes: Fitting her role as a "Seer".
  • Rape as Backstory: After her parents (and the Omekata founders) were killed, Tsubaki was imprisoned and used as a Sex Slave by the cult while making her "pose" as the leaderess.
  • Rape Leads to Insanity: Being Omekata cult's Sex Slave caused her to lose her mind.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Long black hair reaching her hips. Her hair is all the way down to her feet in the anime.
  • Reflectionless Useless Eyes: Signifying her poor eyesight.
  • Religion of Evil: The Omekata cult that she belongs to or rather, is imprisoned by. The Alternate Timeline shows them as a more benevolent group. It helps that the Kasuganos were still alive to lead it well.
  • Sex Slave: The Omekata cult keeps her prisoner as their sex toy.
  • Stalker with a Crush: The 3rd World's Tsubaki was this towards Akise. However, some of her friends thought she was that way to Kosaka... and... well...
  • "Take That!" Kiss: Pulls one on Yukiteru right after trapping him, Yuno and others. Yuno reacts as well as expected.
  • Tears of Remorse: In the anime right before her death.
  • Tragic Keepsake: A handball given to her by her deceased mother. It gets lost later, and Tsubaki definitely loses it soon afterwards.
  • Tsundere: Surprisingly, shows shades of this towards Akise in Paradox.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: As shown by her backstory before her parents were killed, Tsubaki was a nice little girl until she was turned into a Sex Slave and decided to destroy the world.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: She wants to become god so she can destroy the world that has made her suffer so much.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: A soft-spoken, frail-looking miko with a Hime Cut looks the part. She does really have this personality in Paradox.
    • In the 3rd-world, we get to see how Tsubaki would've been like if her parents weren't murdered. She fits here to a T, specially in regards to the will of iron - once Funatsu is uncovered as the would-be killer of the Kasuganos, Tsubaki delivers a Rousing Speech to the Omekatas as a whole to remind them of their benevolent and loving intentions.

Voiced by: Tomokazu Seki (Marco - JP), Natsuko Kuwatani (Ai - JP), Brad Hawkins (Marco - EN), Jamie Marchi (Ai - EN)

A pair of orphans in love with each other. Their "Exchange Diary" is actually two cell phones that report each other's immediate future. The couple displays excellent teamwork as they use their diaries to cover each other's weaknesses.


Both
  • Adaptation Expansion: The anime expands more on their time in high school together rather than just the two flashback scenes in the manga in the tower where Marco and Ai first meet and where they decide to get married. The anime added in a rather dark story in which Ai is set up by her female classmates to be gang raped by a group of boys, with Marco finding her and her captors afterward. He then proceeds to beat down the group and even manages to kill one of her rapists. They later go the tower where Marco is almost Driven to Suicide over not being able to protect Ai, only to be stopped by Ai herself, who begs him not to leave her alone. It helps to add to his reason for not leaving Ai behind in the tower when it started to collapse.
  • Anti Villains: They're enemies to Yuki and Yuno as part of the Survival Game, but they are ultimately good people, while Yuno is actually a Villain Protagonist.
  • Babies Ever After: In the 3rd-world, where Ai is pregnant.
  • Battle Couple: Arguably a truer one than Yuki and Yuno's.
  • Bonding Over Missing Parents: The orphan Marco first met Ai the day her parents abandoned her and they've been close ever since.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: They were the only diary owners who managed to both beat up Yukiteru and Yuno and take away their diaries during their first confrontation. Having the two at their mercy, they made them bring Yukiteru's father (secretly working for Eleventh) to them. After they got their hands on Yukiteru's dad, Marco stated that they didn't have any reason to keep Yukiteru and Yuno alive anymore. Instead of destroying their diaries that very moment... Marco and Ai didn't, and even challenged Yukiteru and Yuno to a rematch that resulted in the two recovering their diaries. Marco even mentioned that he could have simply destroyed the diaries, but that would be too easy and boring. To her credit, after that happened Ai did admit that she and Marco should have simply destroyed the diaries.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: They first met when they were children after Ai was abandoned by her parents and grew up together in Eighth's orphanage.
  • Cool Shades: Both are seen wearing matching sunglasses on occasion.
  • Declaration of Protection: They have sworn to protect each other.
  • Devoted to You: Both are completely devoted to each other, even choosing to die together instead of being separated.
  • Foil: Towards Yukiteru and Yuno, since Marco and Ai are a Battle Couple who love each other in a much more genuine and healthy way.
  • God Couple: Their goal in the game.
  • Graceful Losers: When it becomes obvious that they are going to die, they don't take Yukiteru and Yuno down with them and even give them their last parachute, making it possible for the two to escape from Sakurami Tower. Even though they killed each other's lover, they held no grudge against them for it and recognized that it was simply part of the game.
  • Happily Married: They get married at the Sakurami Tower just before their second encounter with Yuki and Yuno. In the 3rd-world, they are seen as a happy married couple expecting their first child.
  • Image Song: "7th Heaven".
  • Love Freaks: They're always talking about The Power of Love.
  • Mistaken for Cheating: A Running Gag with this pair.
  • Only Sane Couple: Out of all the diary owners, Marco and Ai seem the sanest, although this is shared with Kamado and Yuki before his badass upgrade.
  • The Power of Love: They insist that this is why they win their fights.
  • Together in Death: They die together during the collapse of the Sakurami Tower.
  • Undying Loyalty: Both would rather die than betraying or abandoning each other.
  • Villainous Valour: They are in truth antagonists to the main characters, not villains, and prove themselves to be very devoted to one another, even more so than Yuki and Yuno.
  • Would Not Shoot a Civilian: Although Yuki's friends are actively helping Yuki, Marco and Ai take them down with nonlethal force, drag them out of the building before the bombs go off, and even treat their wounds.

A very...uniquely shaped woman who runs an orphanage. Her "Propagation Diary" is actually a server that can be accessed by the people she allows, giving each person their own "Child Diary" that can predict the future in various ways. She hasn't shown much interest in winning the game, but the children at her orphanage willingly fight to protect her by eliminating the other Diary Holders.


  • Anti-Villain: The "Villain in Name Only" variant. She's actually a lot nicer and more sympathetic than the protagonists let alone the other antagonists. The only reason she's a "villain" is because she's a diary holder and the morality of the series, and even then she's only fighting because her orphanage's kids don't want to see her die.
  • Apron Matron: Her outfit.
  • Blush Sticker: Default look.
  • Cat Smile: Her default expression.
  • Happily Married: To John Balks in the Redial manga.
  • Harmless Villain: She doesn't want to win the game, and relatively speaking she hasn't shown herself to be nearly as crazy or murderous as the other Diary Holders.
  • Image Song: "LOST CHILDREN".
  • Neutral Female: Battle and personality wise, she prefers to have others fight for her, hence the Apprentice Diaries and only wants not to be bothered as she takes care of her kids.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: ...to say the least.
  • Obi-Wan Moment: Before dying, she asks Yuki to create a new world where children can live without worries.
  • Only Sane Woman: Comes across as this by the time Yuki snaps.
  • Orphanage of Love: Presumably she runs one, given how the children are willing to die for her sake.
  • Ship Tease: Has a bit of it with John Balks. In the last episode, they are unambiguously shown to be a couple in the 3rd-world.
  • Super Empowering: She's never shown using her own diary to predict the future, but she can give out Child Diaries.
  • Superpower Lottery: As Eleventh figures out, since she can provide a near infinite amount of diaries to possible wielders so she'll never have to fight, and those diaries can be easily replaced without the wielder dying like a natural Diary user. He even plans to gain omnipotence note  combined with this power, providing him with near infinite army. Eighth on the other hand, does not show interest in this potential.
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: Was hands down, the nicest Diary Holder. When killed, she asks Yuki to create a good world, not even holding a grudge against him.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: No one in-verse except Mur Mur seem to be bothered at her appearance.
  • What Does She See in Him?: Her orphans' reactions to her going out with the Mayor in the 3rd-world.

Voiced by: Mai Aizawa (JP), Emily Neves (EN)

A terrorist bomber raging against the world. Her "Escape Diary" explores each possible option and recommends the best course of action to escape danger, making it very helpful for avoiding death. It will still display a DEAD END when things are stacked too heavily against her, though.


  • Action Bomb: Her "heart bomb" will explode as soon as her heart stops.
  • Action Fashionista: Played with, her initial outfit is very gothic lolita gimmicky, but post Heel–Face Turn she wears far more darker outfits that make her look far more impressive. She even makes a nurse outfit look awesome.
  • Adaptation Expansion: The anime imports parts of her Mosiac side-story.
  • An Arm and a Leg: She loses her right arm later in the story.
  • Anti-Hero: She's willing to do anything to get victory, often in explosive ways.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Her name refers to both the goddess of knowledge and the god of the sea in the Roman mythos.
  • Arch-Enemy: She becomes this to Mur Mur in the final battle, with them duking it out while Yuki and Yuno have their own conflict.
  • Babies Ever After: With 3rd-world Masumi. As a bonus, her babies (most likely twins) have super powers due to her receiving some of Deus' powers.
  • Badass Adorable: She has her moments. Defeating Hiyama in a cosplay dress counts.
  • Badass and Child Duo: Strikes this with Yukiteru especially during the Final Battle.
  • Badass Biker: In her first appearance, she drives a motorcycle to escape.
  • Badass Boast: Known to give these.
  • Badass in Distress: When briefly captured by the Twelfth.
  • Badass Long Robe: She wears a black robe after returning with Deus' powers.
  • Badass Transplant: The white arm that Deus' power gave her.
  • Bare Your Midriff: In her usual outfit.
  • The Baroness: Post Heel–Face Turn.
  • Better to Die than Be Killed: She decides to break her own diary rather than succumbing to her wounds. But Deus intervenes, saving her life and turning her into a SpannerInTheWorks.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: More noticeable in the anime; they're particularly thick.
  • Big Sister Mentor: To Yukiteru, when they're not literally trying to kill each other.
  • Blood Knight: She initially is all for violence.
  • Broken Bird: She's cynical and jaded as a result of her Dark and Troubled Past and is usually dealing with emotional traumas.
  • Byronic Heroine: Morally neutral? Check. Largely concerned with personal interests? Check. Disrespect of common authority? Check. Defined by conflict, inner and outer? Definitely. Guilty of crimes? Definitely. Attractive? Oh yeah. An exile? Definitely. Intelligent? Check. Cynical and self-destructive? Definitely.
  • Changed My Mind, Kid: When Yukiteru and Yuno are stuck trying to get into a vault that's guarding Eleventh, deciding to avenge Nishijima instead. She changes her mind again to perform a Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Character Development: She slowly becomes much more heroic as the game goes on, although some of this overlaps with Characterization Marches On, as much of her initial personality seems downright incompatible with how she's later characterized.
  • Cleavage Window: In her usual outfit.
  • Contralto of Danger: When she meets Yuki, she uses a gentle voice that suddenly changes to her usual deep voice as she activates her bombs.
  • Cool Big Sis: Becomes like one to Yukiteru eventually. And also to 3rd-world Yuno in "Redial".
  • Cool Bike: Owns at least two.
  • Cop Killer: Minene killed Natsuko Oshima in Future Diary: Mosaic and disguised herself as her to fool the rest of the police protecting a VIP.
  • Cosplay: She insists it's "for the atmosphere".
  • Crazy Survivalist: Proven in her very first appearance by pulling a motorcycle out of hammerspace to make her escape. And enhanced by her "Escape Diary", of course, which tells her just what crazy preparations to make.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Purple hair and eyes.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Losing her parents in a religious struggle in the middle east and having to fend for herself in a place where she didn't even know the language made Minene the cynical terrorist she is today.
  • Dark Action Girl: She's ruthless, sociopathic and usually dresses in dark clothes, and very much capable of holding her own in a fight. However, she ends up coming around, for the most part.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Minene lost her parents when she was eight during a conflict caused by religious extremists and was forced to live a brutal life as a streetrat. As a result, Minene developed a hatred towards God and religion as a whole.
  • Dark Is Evil: Appearance-wise, although her name's meanings have connotations with light.
  • Dating Catwoman: Has this with Nishijima until he dies trying to protect her. In the epilogue, she ends up Happily Married to his 3rd-world counterpart.
  • Dead Man Switch: Uses one of these when she holds up a school, derailing an attempt to snipe her because it's attached to a bomb.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Especially post Heel–Face Turn.
  • Dead Person Impersonation: She killed a rookie police officer and took her place so she could get close to her target.
  • Deceased Parents Are the Best: She lost her parents in a religious struggle. We never really see Minene's fond memories of them, but it appears they were Good Parents who loved her and she does remember them fondly one moment before trying to sacrifice herself.
  • Determinator: One of the longest lasting players in the survival game because she refuses to lie down and die. Deus picked her to ensure the game ran its course smoothly for a reason.
  • Disabled Love Interest: She develops a relationship with Nishijima in spite of losing her left eye and later her right hand.
  • Divine Intervention: Experienced this in the first chapter of Mosaic and later on in the main story.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: She wears a lavender-colored gothic lolita-styled dress in her introduction. She drops it for a more subtle wear in her next appearances.
  • Escape Artist: She has the "Escape Diary", after all.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: While she lacks qualms about most of the horrible crimes she commits, Yuno's madness and what she ultimately intends to do clearly disturbs ever her. Although this only occurs late in the game - before she learned all the details, she actually found Yuno's psychopathy an admirable quality.
  • Evil Parents Want Good Kids: For all of Minene's terrorism, she seems to make a decent stay-at-home mom.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Has shoulder-length hair in the Redial OVA.
  • Expy: At first, Minene is this to Revy from Black Lagoon and a gender-flipped version of Takeshi Asakura from Kamen Rider Ryuki. After she pulls a Heel–Face Turn, she became more similar to Misato Katsuragi from Neon Genesis Evangelion.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Which came after being subjected to Eye Scream by the First and the Twelfth.
  • Far East Asian Terrorists: A Japanese terrorist who spent an early part of her life fighting in the Middle East.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: With Yukiteru, later referring to him by his first name.
  • Flight: One of the powers that Deus bequeathed her with.
  • For the Evulz: Early in the series, she takes more sadistic delight and needless cruelty in her killing than she later does.
  • Freudian Excuse: She's a wanted terrorist who blows up schools with children inside, but her dark past made her that way.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Her bombs are all hand made.
  • Godiva Hair: When captured by the Twelfth, who strips and chains her to a wall after tearing out her left eye.
  • Gold and White Are Divine: In addition to the white arm that Deus' power gave her, the anime also gives her a golden eyepatch.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Even after her Heel–Face Turn, she's still a jerk, but she looks out for Yuki throughout the game.
  • Graceful Loser: She never seems to be angry at Yuki for stabbing out her eye until he uses Nishijima as bait, which ends up killing him. Even after Yuki shoots her, she decides to help him out by trying to bomb the vault door. When she's saved by Deus, she once again comes to his assistance.
  • Guile Heroine: Relies on her strategic planning and trickery, and constantly has a means of escape in case her plan falls through.
  • The Gunslinger: While she prefers the grenade, she's no slouch with a gun.
  • Handicapped Badass: She loses her left eye and later her right hand yet still remains badass to the end.
  • Happily Married: To 3rd-world Nishijima in the Distant Finale. Much to the chagrin of her husband, he still has to catch and arrest her 3rd-world self, who is still a terrorist.
  • Heartbroken Badass: After Nishijima dies protecting her.
  • Heel–Face Turn: She is introduced blowing up half of a school full of innocent children just so that she can kill Yuki and Kurusu. After a lot of Character Development, she becomes a more heroic character and Yuki's ally and mentor of-sorts.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: Minene following her Heel–Face Turn, acted as the tritagonist of the series, but when Nishijima gets killed due to Yuki's plan, she seemingly returns acting as an antagonist again and appeared to be another tertiary Decoy Protagonist of the series to be somewhat Evil All Along not unlike Kurusu, forcing Yuki to shoot her in self-defense. Then she turned out to be Not Quite Dead and eventually performs a Heroic Sacrifice to help out Yuki again. After being absent in the following episode, she once again appears in the next, now firmly on Yuki's side.
  • Hidden Depths: She has self-reliance issues and has more of an honorable side to her than her initial portrayal suggests.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: She's an infamous terrorist who's introduced blowing up an entire school full of people, but she later shows a hidden noble and soft side.
  • Hollywood Atheist: Before the survival game started. In the first chapter of Mosaic she states that there is no God and that praying to him and relying on his help in life is stupid. It's also strongly implied that she became atheist because she lost her parents as a child; as she reveals her atheism a flashback is shown to her crying next to the bodies of her parents. At the end of that chapter she meets the God of her universe and becomes Nay-Theist instead.
  • Hospital Hottie: When she disguised herself as a nurse.
  • Hot Goddess: After being given half of Deus's powers.
  • Housewife: She becomes a stay-at-home mom after marrying 3rd-world Nishijima.
  • Image Song: "Reject" and "Brilliant Imitation".
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Yukiteru.
  • I Was Just Passing Through: Passes off several of her kind actions as this, like rescuing Yukiteru and Yuno from Reisuke's gas trap and informing Kurusu of his son's condition when she told Yukiteru that she was just going to wander off and do her own thing in the 3rd-world.
  • Karma Houdini: Her body-count probably numbers in hundreds if not thousands, seeing as before the main story started she attacked not only clergymen, but also religious facilities; Twelfth does mention in Mosaic that she killed a lot of believers in her attacks. She also murdered an innocent rookie detective to steal her identity in Mosaic, and there's also her school bombing early in the main story. As the 2nd-world where she did all of this ultimately gets destroyed, she ends up getting away with this, escaping from the 2nd-world and presumably living Happily Ever After with Nishijima in the 3rd-world. And on top of that, according to Redial, she got to keep her God powers, since it shows her flying in the sky with her kids.
  • Kill the God: Her eventual goal once she wins the game. Though she wouldn't have to work hard on that goal since Deus is dying anyways. What's more, it's lightly hinted that when Deus transferred half of his remaining power to Minene, it actually sped up his coming death, leading to the world to start collapsing earlier than was expected. She ended up achieving her goal, in a way.
  • The Lad-ette: She's a macho hardass and trash talker.
  • Large Ham: In both languages, her voice actress tends to devour the scenery when Minene is in full psycho killer mode.
  • Licked by the Dog: She seems to be liked by a group of wild squirrels which follow her around.
  • Love Redeems: Nishijima was major motivation for her Heel–Face Turn. At the end, she gives up terrorism to marry 3rd-world Nishijima.
  • Love Transcends Spacetime: Nishijima's love for her carries over to the 3rd-world where, during the final battle, he finds and recognizes her and wonders if they met. Two years later they're married and have kids together.
  • Mad Bomber: She bombs churches and assassinates religious figures.
  • Master of Disguise: She is able to fool people even if she's just wearing nurse outfit.
  • Mega Twintails: In her initial appearances, she had huge pigtails that were bigger than her own head. She leaves her hair down afterwards, though. Their volume is somewhat Hand Waved by Mosaic explaining that Mur Mur was the one altering her hair.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Especially post Heel–Face Turn.
  • Nay-Theist: She's fighting to gain the powers of a god, yet refuses to acknowledge the very god who gave her the Diary.
  • Never Found the Body: We were led to believe that her body was completely obliterated by her heart bomb in the bank vault. It was later revealed that Deus had secretly pulled her out to safety just before the bomb exploded, and in addition the anime shows that the bomb explosion was caused by a PortalCut when her bomb was suddenly disconnected from her after she was transported to safety.
  • Noble Demon: She is a terrorist and not above blowing up a middle school full of kids, but she has her own honorable side.
  • Nominal Hero: Originally.
  • Normally, I Would Be Dead Now: Damn, where to begin? Minene already had her eye pierced in her introduction, but as soon as the story starts focusing on her again, she takes some punishment. She narrowly survives a claymore that ends up blowing off her hand and causes her to lose a lot of blood, then after chasing Yukiteru down she manages to corner him only hesitate and give him the opportunity to shoot her in the abdomen, and she bleeds out quite a lot on the floor. Then after Yukiteru and Yuno leave her for dead to try to deal with Eleventh, Minene managed to get back up and walks up behind them to offer to sacrifice herself so they can get inside the safe. It takes her to break her own diary before she actually dies. And Deus even saves her from that, too. Oh yeah, and the new arm that she gets via his powers? Ripped off by Mur Mur. And even after that she still survives.
  • No Social Skills: She doesn't know what exactly marriage is, at least.
  • Not So Different: Surprisingly, she says this to Yukiteru. When she saw him running through her minefield, choking on poisonous gas, or even the look on his face when he lost his parents, she was reminded of her own weakness in her childhood, and admits that she had a soft spot for him.
    • She also gets a bit of this with the Fifth in Mosaic when she asks if he's going to take revenge for his parents. It's probably why she was so intent on returning his dolls.
  • Obi-Wan Moment: And a Tear Jerker to boot.
  • Orphan's Ordeal: She appears to be haunted by the memory of crying over her dead parents.
  • Poisonous Captive: Despite being captured by the Twelfth, she misses no chances mocking him when his plans go awry.
  • Purple Eyes
  • Quit Your Whining: Calls Yuki out after he says he wants to become god so he can bring his parents back to life, saying that with such a reason anyone would want to be god while there is people like her who has suffered much more.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Down to her waist.
  • Redemption Earns Life: Minene gets to live, even though the Survival Game was quite specifically set up so only one participant could survive.
  • Reflectionless Useless Eyes: Her injured left eye is depicted as having a lusterless, crumpled iris.
  • Refusing Paradise: In the Redial OVA, Deus offers Minene to become the god of the 3rd-world, but Minene declines the offer since she's satisfied with her current life as 3rd-world Nishijima's wife.
  • Retired Badass: At the end of the story, she's married and living peacefully with 3rd-world Nishijima, having given up the terrorist life in favor of being a stay-at-home mom.
  • Retired Outlaw: In the finale, she has given up terrorism to live with 3rd-world Nishijima, but her other terrorist-bomber self is still running around there.
  • Satisfied Street Rat: She lost her parents in a religious struggle in the middle east and had to fend for herself in a place where she didn't even know the language, becoming a hardened badass who would eventually target religious buildings and figures in her terrorist bombings.
  • Semi-Divine: After being given half of Deus' powers.
  • Senseless Sacrifice: Averted. Just as Ninth had broken her diary, Deus saved her from her vault explosion. The explosion itself failed to breach the vault as she had hoped, though.
  • Shameful Strip: After being captured by the Twelfth, he strips her down to her panties and chains her to a wall.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Nishijima.
    Minene: Nishijima is the one man who ever promised to make me happy.
  • Slasher Smile: Her default expression, though she keeps a much cooler head than most examples.
  • Sociopathic Hero: In a very different way from Yuno in that she can also be merciless and have little care for anyone except herself and the guy she likes, but not nearly be as monstrously manipulative as the latter, being upfront about her intentions to the point of bluntness.
  • Sour Outside, Sad Inside: Her cynical and ruthless personality is a defense mechanism she developed as a result of her harsh childhood.
  • Sour Supporter: In the final battle, she isn't very supportive about Yukiteru wanting to save Yuno and everyone else in the 3rd-world, but helps him anyway.
  • Spanner in the Works: Becomes the most prominent one near the end of the story, through Deus. Her continued survival throughout the game causes Deus to deem her reliable enough to leave some of his power inside her. After she dies for the first time, she manages to pull a Big Damn Heroes moment to save Yukiteru from the collapsing 2nd-world, and uses Deus' powers to follow Yuno back in time. She then leaves Yukiteru to make a phone call to Kurusu, telling him about his son's future condition and advising him to seek help for it before it's too late. Her actions caused a domino effect that allowed all of the other Diary Holders to prevent many of their personal tragedies and achieve a happy ending (except Third, although at least he gets prison instead of death).
  • The Strategist: Especially during the Fourth fight.
  • Straw Nihilist: She outright doesn't believe in God at least till Deus showed up, and she is jaded by her experiences.
  • Third-Person Person: Occasionally refers to herself as "Minene-sama" because she believes she is just that great. She doesn't do it as often as the story progresses, but whenever she gets serious against her opponents it tends to show up.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: Completely in sync with her reputation as terrorist.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Minene is a badass terrorist who says she doesn't waste her time in girly stuff, but she likes Elegant Gothic Lolita dresses.
  • Took a Level in Badass: When you think Minene is already badass enough, wait to see her return with half of Deus's powers.
  • Touched by Vorlons: Received half of Deus's remaining power when he noticed Mur Mur was unfairly influencing the game to go in Yuno's favor. Deus was hoping that she would use his power to help set the game back on track, and while she did try to honor his request, Yukiteru's decision to Screw Destiny and help the 3rd-world's Yuno made her change course.
  • Tritagonist: The third most prominent protagonist after Yuki and Yuno, though it might be deliberate.
  • Tsundere: According to Mur Mur to Nishijima, she's right.
  • The Unfettered: In a different way than Yuno, in that she's more pragmatic about doing anything she can to achieve her objective than being vilely manipulative as in the case of the latter. She also becomes less brutal as the story goes on.
  • Unscrupulous Hero: After her Heel–Face Turn.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: She was one till her parents blew up.
  • Villain Antagonist: Initially. She blows up half of a school full of innocent children just so that she can kill Yuki and Kurusu.
  • Villainesses Want Heroes: Inverted, as Nishijima is the one who actively pursues Minene.
  • Villain Protagonist: After joining Yukiteru. Don't forget that she still committed crimes which resulted in hundreds of casualties. Even innocent children.
  • Visual Development: So much that she's unrecognizable from her first to later appearances.
  • Wild Card: Especially in the final battle, she's an outside player that not even Mur Mur saw coming.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Introduced blowing up half of a school full of innocent children.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has purple hair.
  • You Remind Me of X: To Yukiteru. See Not So Different.

    Karyuudo Tsukishima - The Tenth 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/10th_3744.jpg
Voiced by: Hirokazu Hiramatsu (JP), Mark Stoddard (EN)

A man who loves his dogs more than anything else. His "Breeder's Diary" lets him check up on and control his army of dogs, which he can command to attack his enemies.


    John Bacchus - The Eleventh 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/218px-John_Balks_1530.jpg

The mayor of Sakurami and the one who suggested the idea of the Future Diary. His diary, "The Watcher", can spy on the contents of all other Future Diaries, making him one of the most formidable Diary Holders. His Evil Plan is to link up the Eighth's Diary to the city's main server, turning every phone into a "Child Diary" and giving him nigh-omniscience.


  • Aesop Amnesia: In the 3rd-world. He cancels the game after learning of his death, understanding the risk is too high, even when the game is stacked in his favor... And then he's shown still pestering Deus with OTHER game ideas, also highly stacked in his favor.
  • All Your Powers Combined: He has the power to locate the other Diary users at all times he planned to take it a step further, using Eighth's power to create an omnipotence completed with an endless supply of replaceable Child Diary users.
  • Antagonist Abilities: Of a very special All Your Powers Combined/Sinister Surveillance variety. He can watch the predictions of other diary holders as well as know their locations. This gives him a massive edge over all the other diaries.
  • Bald of Evil: As well as a a Nazi-esque liked minded thinker.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Though he would have been the Big Bad if it weren't for Yuno and MurMur.
  • Big Brother Is Watching: He's the mayor of the city, and he can spy on all other Diary Holders.
  • Butt-Monkey: Reduced to this in the Redial OVA. Mur Mur really seems to like shoving him down holes.
  • The Chessmaster: Due to his Diary knowing the other Diary users' actions at all times, he plans accordingly to all of them.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He acts like a gentleman around Kamado, but is completely antagonistic towards the other characters.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Balks hides himself in a vault in the bank once run by Yuno's parents, under the very reasonable belief that since the real Yuno has been confirmed dead, the impostor claiming to be Yuno would not be able to use the retinal scanner to get in. It turns out the impostor is the real Yuno from an alternate timeline, and Balks has nowhere to run.
  • Image Song: "Herrscher".
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: He cancels the entire game in the 3rd-world after realizing that he died because of it in the 2nd-world.
  • Large and in Charge: One of the tallest characters in the series, plus having one of the strongest diaries to back up his boasts.
  • A Nazi by Any Other Name: His ultimate goal is to use the power of Future Diaries to turn the people of Sakurami into a master race.
  • Off with His Head!: Decapitated by Yuno.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: At least in the 3rd-world. He convinces Deus to cancel the game and the creation of Future Diaries not because he has a change of heart or anything but because he learns that in the 2nd-world the game resulted in his death despite stacking the deck in his favor.
  • Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: It's eventually revealed that Bacchus help to create the rules of the game. So naturally it's convenient that he would also gift himself with the most overpowered of the diaries.
  • Ship Tease: Has a bit of it with Kamado. He acts much more gentlemanly towards her than towards other characters; in the manga after she undresses to reveal where she hid her Future Diary, he even gives her his own coat so she wouldn't feel uneasy. And in one of the closing panels in Chapter 59 they can be seen walking together. The scene where he gives her his coat wasn't included in the anime but, on the other hand, in the last episode they are unambiguously shown to be a couple in the 3rd-world.
  • Smug Snake: Very condescending towards First and Ninth in their attempts to reach him inside the vault.
  • Superpower Lottery: "The Watcher" hit the absolute jackpot.
  • This Cannot Be!: He didn't believe that Yuno would be able to open the vault he was in. The only ones who could open it were the Gasai family and Yuno was supposed to be an impostor since the third corpse in her house was revealed via DNA testing to be the "real" Yuno Gasai.
  • Uncle Pennybags: To the Eighth's orphanage in the 3rd-world.
  • Undisclosed Funds: Rich enough to have his own private army so to speak, a cellphone signal jammer installed in his own car as a precaution against the Eighth's Child Diary owners, and finally his own supercomputer which is said to be the third greatest in processing power.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Actually contributes to his downfall.
  • Visionary Villain
