This page is a listing of the character in the anime series Hand Maid May.
Voice Actors: Takayuki Yamaguchi (Japanese), Steve Staley (English)
A college guy who winds up with a foot tall cyberdoll as the result of his rival Nambara Kotaro. His many hobby is fixing up a robotic squid named Ikariya, attempting to put A.I. into him.
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Is this with May, being several times her size. That is, until she becomes back human sized halfway through the series.
- NEET: subverted. While he does stay inside often and work with computers, Kazuya regularly goes outside to his college classes, has several friends at school, and has socialized with many girls (granted, all of them but Kasumi are cyberdolls, but still).
- Unknown Rival: to Nanbara.
Voice Actors: Maria Yamamoto (Japanese), Lia Sargent (English)
A 1/6 scale cyberdoll who comes to live with Kazuya. She's kind, devoted, and sweet to him and others.
- Catch Phrase: "I'll do my best!"
- Girl in a Box: how she meets Kazuya.
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Is this with Kazuya, being only a fifth or so his size. That is, until she becomes back human sized halfway through the series.
- Nice Girl: super sweet girl who willingly cleans and cooks for Kazuya. She's also polite to everyone she meets, too.
- Robot Maid: classifies as this, despite her very human looking appearance.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: the Girly Girl to Kasumi's tomboy.
- Zettai Ryouiki: grade B in her typical maid attire.
Voice Actors: Mikako Takahashi (Japanese), Michelle Ruff (English)
Kazuya's next door neighbor and the daughter of the Kasumi house that Kazuya lives in. She's a college student who's also a coach on a little league baseball team in her spare time. She is good friends with Kazuki.
- Cool Big Sis: to Rena, and early in the series to May as well.
- Ms. Fanservice: Most of her screentime is spent around Kazuki, and she tends to spend a lot of it trying to get him interested in her by wearing rather skimpy clothing.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: the Tomboy to Mei's Girly Girl.
- Token Human: among the female cast, she's the only major human, and one of only three humans in the main cast in general.
- Unlucky Childhood Friend
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: commonly wears very short shorts as causal attire.
- Zettai Ryouiki: grade F.
- Casanova Wannabe
- Expy: of Jinnai from El-Hazard: The Magnificent World, even down to his English dub voice.
- Friendly Enemy: self-proclaimed "best friend and worst enemy" of Kazuya's.
- Large Ham: big-time. Nearly every line of dialogue he says in the series is exaggerated to a large degree.
- Small Name, Big Ego: subverted. He actually is very good at the things he does, but people don't like him.
Voice Actors: Rie Kugimiya (Japanese), Rebecca Forstadt (English)
A young cyberdoll who tries to bring back May. She soon gives up and lives at the Kasumi house with Kasumi.
- Bratty Halfpint: Initially. She mellows out as the series goes on.
- Cuteness Proximity: she absolutely adores Ikariya, and is often seen hugging him throughout the series.
- Make Me Wanna Shout: when she doesn't get her way.
- Third-Person Person
- Token Mini-Moe: May might be smaller in size, but in terms of age, Rena serves as this among the main cast.

Voice Actors: Minami Omi (Japanese), Bridget Hoffman (English)
- Improbably High I.Q.: Is said to have an IQ of 50,000 in human terms.
- Smart People Wear Glasses
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair
Voice Actors: Kikuko Inoue (Japanese), Dorothy Elias Fahn (English)
- Cute Little Fang
- Gratuitous Japanese: The English subtitles translate Cyberdoll Mami's Gratuitous English into Gratuitous Japanese; the dub averts this trope.
- Rollerblade Good: Her rollerblades even have rockets built in!
- Verbal Tic: Mami says "Ara Ara Ara" ("Oh my my!" in the dubbed version) quite frequently.
- Yamato Nadeshiko: Mami was created with this idea in mind; she's a domestic genius who wears a kimono (and she's voiced by Kikuko Inoue), but in a variation she has american traits and can skate up walls.
Cyber-X (Takuya Saotome)
Voice Actors: Shin-ichiro Miki (Japanese), Sam Strong (English)
- Kid from the Future: Is Kazuya's future descendant.
