Takuma Sakamoto/Diablo

Voiced by: Masaaki Mizunaka (Japanese), Eric Vale (English)
The Demon Lord of Another World.
Diablo in the Manga 
Diablo's initial appearance in the Light Novel 
Diablo's current appearance in the Light Novel 

Takuma Sakamoto was a human player of the MMORPG Cross Reverie. His character Diablo was known as the Demon King due to being the most powerful Demon Magician in the game. He rarely goes out on other players except for couples due to being a jealous recluse. One day he was summoned to another world that is similar to Cross Reverie as his character Diablo by two female summoners.

  • The Ace: As "Diablo." In Cross Reverie, nobody who dared to challenge him could beat him, and that was with him holding back to make the challenge enjoyable. If he goes all out, next to nobody can even get close. And now he finds himself in an alternate world running on the same mechanics, where everybody of the six races is grievously underleveled. Even the only two other players in the entire MMORPG who had a higher PvP rank than himself still could not beat him if he went all out.
  • Achievement In Ignorance: He discovers he's able to immediately master potion crafting in this world simply by gazing at Shera's chest while his hands do the work, resulting in a perfect potion which he has no idea what was used to make it.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: In the original light novels, Diablo is highly uncomfortable whenever he's stuck in what could even be remotely construed as an erotic situation, such as being alone in a room with either Rem or Shera, and it isn't until after Rem and Shera have been openly throwing themselves at him for a while that he starts to mellow, such as only blushing and turning away when they strip to bathe in a river, right in front of him, and although he does notice Shera's breasts, it's because she either constantly glomps him with them, or sticks them in his face. In the manga, although he tries to hide it, he's a raging pervert, who not only explicitly fantasizes about Rem, Shera, or both, at the drop of a hat, but goes out of his way to openly ogle them, and gets excited when Medios orders Shera to strip, as opposed to being repulsed with the idea of making her uncomfortable by having her strip suddenly in front of a stranger. The manga adaptation even has him immediately conjure an imagine spot of Alicia being molested by tentacles, for no reason, after meeting her. The light novel counterpart would never do anything of the sort, and became enraged beyond reason when Shera was subjected to a similar fate.
  • All the Other Reindeer: Episode 7 of the anime reveals that his childhood was terrible. All his "friends" were really just parasites that mooched off him and his gaming skill, pretending to be nice when he was around, but the moment he turned his back, they called him "weird" and laughed at him, deriding the fact that he shared his best gear with their characters in party raid events.... and he heard it when he went out to play with them but they hadn't seen him arrive because they were too busy bragging that they don't need him anymore.
  • Anti-Hero: Of the Knight In Sour Armor variety. He just wants to be left alone with his companions but keeps getting forced into conflict with others.
  • Anti-Magic Attack Reflector: His equipment the 《Demon King's Ring》 reflects all magic whether it is an attack, healing or support. It forces him to rely on his potions for restoration. Especially mana.
  • An Arm and a Leg: He's had his arm severed from his body on several occasions. Fortunately, his Distorted Crown and some healing potions allowed him to grow it back.
  • Ascended Fanboy: He's a top-ranked player of Cross Reverie the video game who is summoned into a Medieval European Fantasy RPG-Mechanics Verse that closely resembles the game.
  • Audience Surrogate: Even though Diablo is very Genre Savvy when it comes to games, the world he got transported to is just different enough that there are things he's unfamiliar with, so as a result he asks the girls a lot of questions about the world.
  • Aura Vision: In the second volume he learned how to do this.
  • Awesome, but Impractical: His two ultimate spells, "White Nova" and the Unrealistic Black Hole are this. The former requires a 30 second cast time, which he was able to hide by monologuing, and the latter requires Diablo to touch the target, both of which are very dangerous, under normal conditions, for any pure spell-caster class. If Diablo wasn't so insanely overpowered for the world setting, it's unlikely he'd ever get to use either of them.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: He's not just a magical powerhouse. The primary reason he was the first player to take down Demon King of the brain, Enkvolus, is not that he simply overpowered it, but that he calmly and carefully analyzed its strengths, weaknesses, weapons and tactics, while he was actively fighting it, and countering each and everything it did with brutal efficiency. He does it again, in story, with the Force Hydra. Instead of wasting his time and energy trying to focus on the small, hidden, and constantly shifting Achilles' Heel, he uses carefully gauged attacks to figure out the Force Hydra's rather counter-intuitive special ability and turn it on the Hydra itself.
  • Badass Cape: Diablo's mantle, 《The Curtain of Dark Clouds》, is a black cloak that prevents bad status effects and allows him to survive an attack that would drop his HP to 0. After Diablo burned it to start a fire to save Horun in Volume 5 from hypothermia, he replaces it with the 《Call of Darkness》, which can bestow the Fear effect on his enemies. It was able to send an entire plaza of people into a sobbing panic.
  • Bag of Spilling: Played with. He only brought his character's own personal inventory into the new world. This does not include his tremendous financial fortune, nor the countless treasures he's collected over the life of his character. It might prove subverted completely if his personally created dungeon is linked to this world as well, though considering the exponential difference in travel times between the game and this world, he doesn't yet have sufficient justification for a several day journey with no guarantee of success at the other end.
    • In volume 4, it looks averted, and justified. His dungeon does indeed appear where he put it in the game, and adventurers have been raiding it, trying to get at the treasures inside. Now the real question is if Diablo can legally lay claim to it or if "monster houses" like his personal dungeon are considered public property.
  • Battle Aura: While it's not present in the manga, in the original light novel, he begins to emit mana when he becomes enraged at the thought of his friends or loved ones being threatened.
  • Bedmate Reveal: After his very first night being the "master" of Rem and Shera, he wakes up sharing a bed with both of them, having no idea how he got there.
  • Berserk Button: In the prologue it is noted that the "Demon Lord" absolutely refuses to go all-out, always maintaining a "performance" to "entertain" his enemies before killing them, so long as he doesn't think they're dating. But if he sees a "Wedding Ring", a useless item that serves only to brag that a pair are dating IRL, he pulls out all the stops and viciously destroys the "normies".
    • We get to see this button pressed fully for the first time in Volume 7, when Diablo sees the Demon King Army’s commander-in-chief, Vanaknes, flirting with his wives. Diablo's mind goes blank, he unintentionally starts laughing, and makes an expression that makes Lamnites, of all people, shrink back in fear and ask what's wrong. Diablo replies as follows:
    I'm going to go kill that guy for a bit.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Yes, once word of how powerful, intelligent, competent, and brutal he is gets out, people still go out of their way to antagonize, harass, provoke, or threaten him or those he cares about. Said people often wind up utterly dumbstruck when he retaliates and they find themselves on the wrong end of a Curbstomp Battle.
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: One cup of supposedly MP restoring alcohol, and he immediately goes into a fugue, where he collapses, drags Sylvie onto the bed due to mistaking her for a body pillow, gropes her to orgasm and strips her naked in the process, and then falling asleep on top of her, much to her chagrin.
  • Catchphrase: "My name is Diablo, I am a Demon Lord from another world."
  • Chekhov's Skill: The Mana Manipulation skill he learned from Medios to use on Shera and Rem's collars was effective in freeing Diablo from Galford's ritual magic trap.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Played with. As much as he'd love his erotic fantasies of his girls to be a reality, he adamantly refuses when such opportunities do present itself. Though it's often not so much him being conscious of the girls' dignities and more that he becomes a nervous wreck at the very thought of such a scene.
  • The Collector: The light novel makes it clear that his "warehouse" holds a vast array of items from the game, as he would collect at least one of every kind of item he got his hands on, no matter how substandard, impractical, or useless it was to him. In fact, the primary reason he bought the "trial-attempt war-scythe" is that he missed the limited time lottery where the scythe would show up as a "miss" item.
  • Comically Invincible Hero: He might as well be the Isekai version of Saitama. He's so unbelievably overpowered compared to everyone, being at level 150, that he doesn't even need to put the slightest bit of effort into defeating enemies. A single spell blast where he thought he was holding back vanquishes a summoned level 30 salamander, a tap of his staff sends a level 50 player crashing into a wall, and he can No-Sell pretty much anything anyone throws at him. It takes the level 80 Edelgard to even make him feel the slightest bit of pain.
    • Downplayed later on when he meets some of the stronger people in the world, some of which could legitimately beat him if he didn't either have an item on hand to deal with them or have enough prep time.
  • Covert Pervert: In the manga, he's constantly imagining himself in intimate situations with either Rem or Shera, sometimes both at the same time, and it doesn't take much to set this off. In the light novel, he finds Shera's breasts hypnotic and his mind goes blank if he stares down her cleavage for any length of time, which he exploits when he's experimenting with the Potion-Brewing Mechanic.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He has an assortment of items equipped that prepare him for pretty much anything the world has to throw at him. His 《Demon King's Ring》 reflects any magic directed at him, 《The Distorted Crown》 grants him a Healing Factor, while the 《The Curtain of Black Clouds》 can bring him back from the brink of death if he gets hit by an attack that would otherwise have killed him.
  • Cruel to Be Kind: Realizing that he doesn't have the proper conversational skills to politely wrestle Rem's secrets out of her, especially after Celestine, the most powerful mage in the world setting shows concern because of it, he openly declares his intent to "torture" it out of her. Once Rem reveals that she's afraid of being abandoned when he hears it, that's when he gets "creative."
  • A Date with Rosie Palms: Implied. In the manga, when Rem rightly worries if "Diablo" is going to violate her, he has a flashback to a box of tissues with the words "even in real-life, I was a solo player."
  • Dark Is Not Evil: For a self proclaimed Demon Lord and a literal demon in the new world, he does have some noble intentions of helping his companions.
  • Declaration of Protection: After hearing Rem's dark secret, he promises to protect her from Demon King Krebskrum, no matter what. She becomes completely smitten with him as a direct result. Soon afterward, he does the same for Shera when her own brother tries to have her kidnapped to become his personal Baby Factory. Shera has the same reaction.
  • Does Not Like Women: Downplayed. It's not that he hates women. In fact, he likes them a great deal. It's just that he's such a shy otaku that he doesn't know how to relate to them. As such, unless he's roleplaying as "Diablo," he can't even talk to them. This makes his situation with Rem and Shera... complicated.
  • Double Standard: Rape, Female on Male: A victim of it, offenses listed on the main page.
  • Elemental Powers: Uses Chemical Elemental Magic.
  • Experienced Protagonist: He was summoned into the new world as a level 150 "demon king" with countless of hours of Cross Reverie gameplay and PvP experience under his belt.
  • Fantastic Nuke: His ultimate spell, "White Nova," is described as having an effect similar to a fusion bomb. Edelgart surviving a direct hit with only the loss of her weapon, and minor clothing damge, after having already sacrificed 15% of her HP in a powerful attack impresses him beyond measure. The rest of her 100 demonic being army was instantly vaporized.
  • Genre Savvy: On Earth, Takuma was the top-ranked player of Cross Reverie in both PvP and PvE. As such, after being summoned into an RPG-Mechanics Verse similar to the game world as his toon from the game, the Demon Sorcerer Diablo, he's frequently able to use his out-of-character knowledge about Cross Reverie to his advantage. However, he's often Wrong Genre Savvy about matters that aren't strictly to do with gameplay or were left out of the game (e.g. Fantastic Racism and misogyny by the humans of the world, and the behavior of the Church).
  • Glass Cannon: He can invoke this when the situation calls for it. A ring he collected from defeating the Devil King of Insanity allows him to put everything he's got into pure offense, while setting all his defenses to zero.
  • Godlike Gamer: Takuma Sakamoto fits this to a T. In Cross Reverie, he played as the Demon Lord Diablo who was so ridiculously skilled and powerful that no one dared to challenge him. In fact he decided to hold back in order to keep things fun for himself. Then he's cast into a world similar to Cross Reverie in his game character's body and finds everyone else is severely underleveled.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Having no social skills, and being a hikkikimori level otaku, the only way he can interact with the world is by roleplaying as "Demon King Diablo," so he's rude, crude and abrasive, but he's genuinely decent, kind, and morally upright, and most of his intimidating bluster is purely for the sake of avoiding conflict because all he really wants is to be left alone and lead a peaceful existence with his True Companions.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: As a player, he always went easy on those who challenge his dungeon, as a courtesy. Unless the challengers looked like a romantic couple, and then he pulled out all the stops to brutally slaughter them without mercy, at a time that he lived alone, as a shy otaku who froze speaking to a pretty female cashier.
  • Healing Factor: Diablo's 《The Distorted Crown》 automatically restores his HP.
  • Heroic Neutral: All he wants is to be left alone with his True Companions, and lead as simple a life as possible. He will do anything that aligns with that goal and strongly opposes anything that threatens it. The only reason he ever fights the Demonic Beings is that they're far more likely to come after his loved ones than the six races will, though when people of the six races are the threat, he shows little hesitation fighting them, delivering as much of a beat-down as necessary, and if the only way to make the threat stop is to kill the offender, so be it.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Invoked and exploited. In D&D terms, it's like a Half-orc character placing most of his non-class stat points into Bluff and Intimidate. This serves Diablo just fine as his lack of social skills would seriously hinder him in trying to relate to the world any other way.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Roleplaying a fearsome Demon Lord, Diablo presents himself as being very rude, brash, and selfish. But underneath that exterior he has a soft side and really does care about his companions, even if he won't openly admit to it.
  • Honor Before Reason: He will knowingly choose to act in character as a haughty and aggressive demon lord even when it's likely to put him in greater danger because he thinks it would be uncool to drop his role play. At these times he's generally waiting for his companions to stop him from saying something stupid.
  • Horned Humanoid: Diablo wears an item called 《The Distorted Crown》 that makes it look like he has horns growing out of his head, resembling a Demonic Being.
  • Humble Hero: Ironically. Despite projecting the image of a haughty and boastful Demon King, he really just wants to be left alone, and is not actively seeking praise or glory.
  • Hunk: Diablo has a very well built physique for a mage, possessing six pack abs, sculpted obliques, large pectoral muscles and impressive biceps and arms. Though perhaps a little less impressive when one considers this body was the result of character creation and not physical effort.
  • I Gave My Word: He will honor any promise he makes to the best of his abilities. This does have limits, however. If the other party is not honest and forthright in their dealings, either breaking their end of the deal, using brainwashing, or some other despicable act that goes against either the letter or the spirit of the agreement, he will immediately "forget" any such promise he made, and hold the other party to task, violently. Doubly so if it involves his True Companions.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: When Shera called him "a companion", he blushed with joy.
  • Innocent Cohabitation: More or less. While he does share a bed with both Rem and Shera, and has even gotten to see them completely naked, at their invitation, not to mention Shera's frequent erotic acts, he has yet to go all the way with either of them, not because he's opposed to it, but due to his own Paralyzing Fear of Sexuality, and the fact that he prioritizes their trust above his own gratification.
  • Insecure Love Interest: Due to his Paralyzing Fear of Sexuality and poor social skills, he is very reluctant to progress romantically with either Rem or Shera, no matter how much they both throw themselves at him.
  • Irony: The kind of players/challengers he hated most were those with obvious romantic relationships. The first thing he does after being dragged off into another world, running on the mechanics of the game he knows and loves, is form a Love Triangle with two very attractive women, who are almost constantly fighting over him, all completely by accident. In Volume 10, Diablo realizes this irony and quickly spirals into a mild panic attack, wondering if it is he who should explode.
    • In the game, chemical magic, at which Diablo universally excels, is the prime choice for players who want to be magicians while in the new world, running on the same mechanics, it's considered a joke, good only for teaching the basics to children.
    • In the new world, summoners are the type of magicians people hold in awe above all others, while in the game, summoners are treated with derision, not only because chemical mages could easily provide more damage per second (DPS) for similar relative levels, but summoned monsters had little in the way of utility, with each monster having only one special ability, and being relatively easy to defeat in a straight up fight; the same not being true in the new world, where summoned monsters can be stronger than the mage that summons them, but still bound to a slave contract, making them obey their summoners without question.
  • Jerkass with a Heart of Gold: At least at first. He's nowhere near as overbearing as he pretends. He's actually very shy. He just projects the image of "Demon King, Diablo" because that's the only way he's ever successfully spoken with a girl. In fact, he has flashbacks of freezing in front of a female cashier because he doesn't know how to talk to her.
  • Large Ham: As part of his Demon Lord act, he hams up the theatrics to make himself sound very arrogant.
  • Last Chance Hit Point: Diablo's mantle called 《The Curtain of Black Clouds》 has one of the effects to have him survive an attack that could kill him.
  • Magic Knight: Eventually Diablo comes to the conclusion that fighting strictly as a mage is a detriment to himself, so he changes to a heavy armor setup allowing him to get up close and personal while delivering spells through a sword that intensely amplify their effects.
  • Magic Staff: Diablo's staff called 《The Staff of Tenma》. After Diablo loses it when he saved Horun from drowning, he replaces it with the 《Tonnerre Empereur》.
  • Mark of the Supernatural: Diablo, being a Demon, has tattoo like markings on his face, neck and upper body.
  • Morph Weapon: The 《Tonnerre Empereur》, a staff of Diablo's that can turn into a magic sword.
  • Mugging the Monster: Before his power, competence, and brutality towards his enemies was well known, people would provoke him because the "Demon" race is known for being relatively physically frail. These fools would find themselves lucky if they were simply killed off quickly.
  • My Greatest Failure: Letting Shera, under the effect of mind control, be taken away by Kiira to be sexually assaulted. He confesses that outright war with the Greenwood Kingdom would have been preferable to that, even if the city of Faltra went up in flame in the aftermath.
  • Necessary Drawback: Using his magic consumes MP. While this isn't a problem in the game, in the new world, it saps away at his mental strength, which could be quite dangerous if he uses up all his MP.
  • Noble Demon: Invoked. Since the only way he knows how to interact with others is through "Demon King" roleplay, and he's of the "demon" race, he projects himself as a fierce and arrogant demon, but he protects innocents, honors his word, and fights with courage and nobility, often taking damage that he could have easily avoided, in order to protect others. Also, as long as one doesn't deliberately try to provoke him, he's actually quite harmless.
  • Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: In Cross Reverie, his character is officially ranked "middle-tier." In the new world where he finds himself, he can, and does, solo an army when sufficiently provoked. Diablo eventually figures out this is the result of Reality Ensues in a RPG-Mechanics Verse with permadeath where its inhabitants can't really risk challenging too many or strong enemies to Level Grind unlike the game where Death Is a Slap on the Wrist.
  • No-Sell: Salamander fire blast, Diablo walks right through it unscathed. Volley of elvish arrows, they all bounce off him unharmed.
  • No Social Skills: The closest he can come to a conversation is his Demon King roleplay. As such, a great deal of what he says tends to get misunderstood, and provoke needless conflict.
  • One-Man Army: He is officially recognized as one by the new world by the time volume three rolls around.
  • Papa Wolf: He's very little Krebskrum, and it's a fundamentally bad idea to offend or threaten any of them.
  • Paralyzing Fear of Sexuality: While he is heterosexual, and admires beautiful women, happily imagining himself in intimate encounters, his natural fear of rejection, lack of social skills, and inherent shyness, almost to hikkikomori levels, have combined to the point that he is literally paralyzed when he finds himself in even a marginally actual erotic situation, like in the Bedmate Reveal above. This is something he also hides behind his "Demon King" persona. As such, if he finds his hands on Rem's or Shera's breasts, or anywhere intimate, for any reason, he literally can not pull away, especially if he wants to. While Rem has issues with it, Shera doesn't seem to mind, actually going out of her way to thank him for paying attention to her figure on several occasions.
  • The Paranoiac: Aside from earning enough money to put food on the table, a daunting task with the likes of Shera and Krebskrum, his primary motivating factor is the highly irrational fear of losing Shera's and Rem's respect and admiration, even though the two of them have made it abundantly clear that they love him unconditionally. For now, this manifests as a Morality Chain to keep him from going A God Am I considering how overpowered he is for the world setting.
    • The anime expands on and actually justifies this in a believable manner. Diablo has flashbacks, as Takuma, where he was shunned for basically no reason as a child, until about middle-school where he has a couple of "friends" he hangs out with. Unfortunately, these "friends" were really just mooching off him for his gaming expertise, so they could get the best gear for their game characters. They would laugh at and deride him behind his back, and he caught on because he stumbled on them bragging that they didn't need him anymore.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Diablo is well aware of this, but since he has No Social Skills, he has serious trouble avoiding it.
  • Potion-Brewing Mechanic: Diablo has the 《Compounder》 sub-class. It's much more important that one might initially guess for him as the effects of his <Demon King's Ring> mean that he has to rely on potions for self-recovery.
  • Pragmatic Hero: While he does act in terms of the greater good, specifically where it concerns Rem and/or Shera, he's not averse to "bending" or outright breaking the law, or a few limbs, to get the job done.
  • Promotion to Parent: He, more or less, becomes the father of little Krebskrum after pouring his mana into her so she could be born and separated from Rem's body. Krebskrum winds up really taking after him.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: His party's make-up is truly bizarre, to say the least. It starts with a level 40 summoner/fighter Pantheran and a level 40 archer/level 30 summoner elf who pointedly bicker about everything, especially himself, then he adds Krebskrum, the Cross Reverie's yet-to-be-introduced Final Boss Devil King who turns out to actually be a sweet, innocent child, with a powerful Sweet Tooth, and if the pattern continues in volume 4, he's likely to add the female High Priest of the Church of the Divine Beings to his collection, who unsurprisingly suffers Hate at First Sight with Krebskrum, and the feeling's mutual.
  • Readings Are Off the Scale: When the Adventurer's guild tries to measure his magic level, the magic mirror goes completely dark, and starts putting out black miasma. He's level 150 in a world where level 30 is considered strong.
  • Red Baron: Diablo is known as the Demon King in the game Cross Reverie. He often introduces himself in the other world as the Demon King.
  • Relationship Upgrade: He ends up marrying Sherra (Volume 7) and Rem (Volume 9).
  • Ring of Power: The 《Demon King's Ring》 gives him an Anti-Magic Attack Reflector. A downside is that it also reflects healing magic so he is limited to potions for healing when he wears it.
    • The 《Insanity Ring》, a drop he got from defeating Mondinalaam of the other world, increases his attack but lowers his defense.
  • The Roleplayer: Being the asocial loner he is, roleplaying as Diablo is essentially the only kind of interaction with people he's ever had. He has no idea how to talk to people outside of this facade.
  • Sacrificed Basic Skill for Awesome Training: In exchange for grooming his "Diablo" character to become the powerhouse that he is, he has No Social Skills and Paralyzing Fear of Sexuality, and he knows it.
  • Sinister Scythe: In the 2nd volume, he bought one for melee combat to do less than lethal attacks with. It gets destroyed in Volume 10.
  • Slave To Pr: Since the only social skill he has is roleplaying as "The Demon King of Another World," he always has to try to justify his actions in a "Demon King" manner. As such, he'll shake off gratitude by saying "Hmph! I just happened to feel like it" when he does something nice for people, or try to claim that whatever nice things he did on their behalf is only because he personally benefits from it, and their well-being was merely a happy accident. Few are ever fooled.
  • Smug Super: It's more for show than actual arrogance, but he will not hesitate to remind his opponents just how thoroughly outclassed they are compared to him.
  • Stock Light-Novel Hero: This trope is Played for Laughs regarding Diablo and with the cliches exaggerated to ridiculous levels. He's a Godlike Gamer and a shut-in NEET back in the real world before he is abruptly summoned into an RPG Verse where he becomes his overpowered player avatar, and finds that everyone around him is laughably under levelednote . He gets a harem of two girls fighting over him from his very first appearance, however, the twist is that they actually get turned into his slaves by accident so he technically owns them, and he keeps acquiring more girls after that. He's unusual that he's not a bishonen human, but an imposing demon lord. What distinguishes him from most unlike most examples of this trope, he roleplays the mean, selfish Demon Lordnote , meaning he generally doesn't show altruistic traits on the surface like the typical light novel protagonist. It takes scratching the surface and getting to know him better to see his nicer side underneath who is willing to help his girls when they are in trouble.
  • Strong and Skilled: Diablo is a Genre Savvy Godlike Gamer who has extensive knowledge of how RPGs work and a vast array of magical skills, though his stats are also unbelievably high so that he can triumph over enemies using raw power alone while only exerting fractions of his full strength.
  • Supreme Chef: He actually loves to cook, but doesn't get many opportunities to do so because "it's not Demon-king like." If he's given a plausible excuse though, he can easily prepare restaurant quality meals, and it's his own skill, not a game mechanic. His first act of cooking involves making crab hot-pot from scratch. When Salasa reveals the reason for Soba being her favorite food, he goes and prepares it from scratch and even she admits he cooks it better than her master used to.
  • Take a Third Option: Rather than hand over Krum for execution or make an enemy of the Adventurer's guild and the city of Faltra, he decides upon enslaving Krebskrum, after getting her fully informed consent.
  • Technical Pacifist: Diablo does not like killing. He'd prefer to avoid fighting altogether, but if he doesn't see any other choice, he will utterly and completely butcher his enemies, and give them a slow, extremely painful death, if for no other reason than to dissuade others from being foolish enough to challenge him.
  • Teleportation: 《Return》, a spell that allows a person or party to return to the last town they visited.
  • Thanks for the Mammary: He's accidentally groped both Rem and Shera on several occasions. Unlike most examples it's not because his hand ended up somewhere he didn't intend, it's because he physically has no control over his hand which will grope the breast on its own!
  • That Makes Me Feel Angry: When he learned that Shera's brother put a 150 million feris bounty on her, he didn't rampage or raise his voice, but he subtly made quite evident how deeply enraged that made him. Before that, he used this trope as an excuse to attack Gregor without exposing his knowledge about Rem's dark secret.
  • There Is Only One Bed: Due to their lack of funds, the Inn proprietor, Mei, assigns them a single, supposedly three-person room. Upon entering, they find out to their dismay, that the room only has one bed, and no other furniture. Diablo walks out for some fresh air while Rem and Shera try to iron out the sleeping arrangements, only to later wind up in the Bedmate Reveal scenario above.
  • The Three Faces of Eve: With the addition of Krebskrum to his companions, he gets this. Krebskrum takes up the role of the child, for obvious reasons, Shera takes up the role of the seductress, although she's childishly innocent in doing it, and Rem takes up the role of the wife as she's the most resourceful, mature, and level headed of the bunch.
  • To Be Lawful or Good: In Volume 11, he's caught between the Kobolds, who are acting in self-defense, trying to keep from being driven out of their homes, and the Kingdom of Faltra, who officially hired him through the Adventurer's guild to protect the human settlers that the Kobolds are fighting. Being a "Demon King from Another World," Diablo proclaims he's going to do things his own way.
  • Trapped in Another World: He went to bed in modern day Japan, woke up on the summoning altar as "Diablo."
  • Translator Microbes: For some reason, he can speak the same language at the natives, but he can neither read nor write it.
  • True Companions: In a very short amount of time, a little under 3 days, he, Shera and Rem become inseperable, even without taking the slave chokers into account.
  • Tsundere: A rare male example, type A. He comes across as brash and haughty, but he's actually very timid and shy, especially around women. Rem is the first to pick up on it.
  • Unwanted False Faith: As a direct result of coming to the rescue of Lumachina, she's come to believe he's the flesh and blood incarnation of her god, "Kami-sama." Diablo initially tried to rebuff her until she mentioned that the alternative is a Bureaucratically Arranged Marriage, due to the fact that her upbringing requires her to marry the first guy to whom she willingly shows her naked body. Since she had endured a Shameful Strip before Diablo showed up, and was more concerned with protecting her life than her modesty, Diablo sees playing along as "Kami-sama" as being the safer option.
  • Useless Useful Spell: His level 30 spell, "Stardust", doesn't normally deliver much damage, but since it can be cast in rapid succession, it allows Diablo to keep it in his repertoire in many useful ways, primarily a smokescreen.
  • Weirdness Magnet: If something odd can happen near or to him, it will. Numerous characters lampshade this.
  • We Want Our Jerk Back: Rem and Shera grow to become so accustomed to his Hidden Heart of Gold-hiding facade, that if he shows genuine tenderness, it terrifies them, and they are quickly relieved when he goes back into his "Demon King" persona.
  • Wild Card: He has no loyalty to any faction except his own which just happens to include Rem and Shera, (and little Krebskrum). He will become an ally, no matter how temporary, to anyone that serves their interests, and bring overwhelming force to bear on those that threaten them, even if they were "allies" just moments before.
  • Willfully Weak: He has the power to level entire towns. He strives to use the absolute minimum force he can, and still utterly obliterates just about anything and anyone he comes across without even trying. Those who can challenge him in the world setting can be counted on one hand, and even then, have to resort to Worf Had the Flu to stand a chance.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: On occasion. While the new world he finds himself in does run on the same mechanics as the game he knows and loves, there are numerous subtle differences that can make his knowledge get him or his companions in trouble. Fortunately, when he used to play Cross Reverie, he made it a habit to ignore the consensus or even his own first-hand knowledge to examine any situation he found himself in, and act accordingly.
  • You Are What You Hate: In volume 10, he gets hit with this, hard, as a trio of dwarven thieves accuse him of being the kind of lovesick lady's man they hate most and he realizes he's been romantically involved with both Rem and Shera for a while. Unfortunately for those dwarves, it sends him into his Heroic Safe Mode and he would have mindlessly killed them without mercy if Sylvie hadn't stopped him... Although they probably wish he did after what Sylvie does to them.

Pantherian Summoner
Rem in the Manga 
Rem in the Light Novel 

A Pantherian Summoner Magician, one of the two Summoners who summoned Diablo. The reason she summoned him was to help her defeat the Demon King Krebskulm's soul that is sealed within her.

  • Absurdly Youthful Mother: She is technically Klem's mother for the Demon Lord's rebirth, even though she is only 14 years old herself.
  • A-Cup Angst: She is really uncomfortable concerning her small chest, as it's not only rare for a Pantherian but also she sees it as a huge disadvantage in trying to win Diablo's affections.
  • Adaptational Skimpiness: Her outfit in the anime shows a lot more skin than in the manga.
  • Ambiguously Bi: She doesn't object very convincingly when Shera plays with her body, and she blushes when Diablo has her share Alicia's bed until such time as Rem gets accustomed to the idea of sharing a living space with Krebskrum.
  • Barrier Maiden: She's got Demon King Krebskrum's soul trapped inside her, and if she dies, it comes flying out, "wrong". She inherited this fate from her mother... which brings up all sorts of unpleasant questions. By the end of Volume 3, this no longer applies.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Veronica to Shera's Betty.
  • Cat Girl: A Pantherian, she has black cat ears and tail.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Of the sugar and ice personality type. Of course, it usually is justified in context.
  • Distracted from Death: She's well on her way there at the end of Volume 4. She's described going into shock, if not rigor mortis, at the end of "part 4" which is the final chapter in the volume. Unfortunately, at this point, Krebskuum is already consumed with hate and in a berserker state, no longer able to act rationally, forgetting why she's full of hate in the first place.
  • Distressed Damsel: Near constantly. If ever she finds herself in battle without Diablo present, she gets her ass handed to her and taken away by nefarious individuals, forcing Diablo and Shera to come to her rescue. In her defense, this is due to her opponents being vastly overpowering, outclassing, outnumbering, or all of the above.
  • Fantastic Arousal: Diablo accidentally finds out that her ears are...sensitive. Shera also sets off a similar reaction through stroking her tail.
  • Faux Action Girl: She doesn't get much opportunity to show it, but she is at least a level 40 adventurer in a world where level 50 is usually sufficient to become a guild leader. In the fight to rescue Shera from Kiira, although Diablo did take the lion's share of the elven army, she was clearly no slouch with her summons and hand to hand combat, pulling off a Back-to-Back Badasses Offscreen Moment of Awesome. Sadly, while she is quite powerful and competent, her on-screen battles have her so badly outclassed that she needs to be rescued the vast majority of the time.
    • Finally averted at the end of Volume 11, as she manages to dish out a Curbstomp Battle to a recurring antagonist.
  • Gag Boobs: In an A-Cup Angst way. Many jokes are made on how flat she is, including one instance of Diablo landing his head into her chest and getting knocked out from how hard it was.
  • Happily Married: To Diablo after Volume 9.
  • Hates Baths: Combined with Cats Hate Water. Justified because of very practical reasons. Pantherians like her don't bathe in pools of water well because their fur gets heavy and it affects their combat prowess, and if done outdoors, like in a river, it leaves their equipment unattended. She also points out that Pantherian sweat has no smell. A few paragraphs after Shera drags her into a river to bathe, right in front of Diablo, her fears are justified as they are set upon by both Edelgard, who amazingly was not hostile, and bandits from the six races who were.
  • Immodest Orgasm: When she's set off, she's quite loud.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Gets stabbed by Saddler while trying to protect Krebskulm during his "interrogation" session.
  • Insecure Love Interest: She just can't bring herself to believe Diablo actually loves her. In volume 11, she vocally proclaims that she's divorcing Diablo because she feels he only married her out of pity, not love. This is in addition to the Double Standard: Rape, Female on Male entry.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Played for laughs. Shera remembers all the times Rem called her "stupid" and told Celestine to "treat her like mold on the wall" when Rem asked to be rescued from Diablo's "torture," and not only outright refused, but went ahead and ate Rem's share of the evening meal.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Aside from her cat ears and tail, she could easily pass for a human.
  • Made a Slave: Unintentionally, and combined with Hoist by His Own Petard. The magic beast summon spell she used on "Diablo" rebounded and enslaved her instead.
  • Mafia Princess: She's the heir apparent to a Pantherian Yakuza Kung-Fu Wizard clan.
  • Mama Bear: Despite devoting her entire life to destroying Krebskrum's soul, when she gives birth to Krebskrum, she's among the first people to come to Krebskrum's aid, and save the little girl's life. Rem is understandably quite confused and conflicted over this.
  • Marshmallow Hell: Due to the height difference between her and Shera (Shera is at least a head taller), every time Shera hugs her to show her affection, Rem's head winds up right in Shera's cleavage. This leaves Rem highly conflicted. On the one hand, she loves the show of affection. On the other, she doesn't like being reminded of her shortcomings.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Rem is something of an outlier for a Pantherian. Her fur is black instead of yellowish-brown due to some form of melanism, she has a bit of a complex over having a rather small chest for her age and Race, and she's level-headed and pragmatic, unlike most Pantherians who tend to be boisterous.
  • Property of Love: Diablo calls her his property to hide his embarrassment for being thanked when he saved her life. She's surprisingly quite happy with the idea.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her raven-colored hair reaches her waist.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: The contrast is so strong, Diablo compares her to a doll. He also points out her almond-shaped eyes.
  • Relationship Upgrade: Winds up getting married to Diablo, properly, in the epilogue of Volume 11.
  • Sealed Inside a Person-Shaped Can: She is the can for the Demon King Krebskrum's soul.
  • Senseless Sacrifice: She takes a sword blow aimed at Krebskrum, not only to protect the innocent little girl but to prevent her from becoming the instrument of the six race's destruction. Her grievous injury, and Sadraa's cruel mockery, serves to unleash Krebskulm's Superpowered Evil Side anyway.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: To Shera. While they, together with Diablo, do grow to be True Companions, Shera just can't resist riling her up, and she can't resist verbally lashing out, especially where it concerns their relative chest sizes.
  • Sleep Cute: Diablo finds her sleeping face adorable.
  • Sour Prude: While she does like shows of affection, she easily gets wildly flustered when such affection is even remotely public. Further, whenever she catches Shera in anything remotely erotic with Diablo, she gets quite angry, both because she thinks it's inappropriate and because she feels left out. Later on, she starts to, instead of getting jealous that she's being left out, will insert herself into and mimic whatever it is Shera is doing. For example, if Shera is naked and hugging Diablo from behind she'll strip naked and hug him from the front.
  • Stripperiffic: When Diablo gives Rem an equipment upgrade straight out of his own storage inventory the form that it takes can be aptly described as "just barely enough to preserve her modesty". Diablo didn't expect female armor to work in the world like it did in the actual game.
  • Tears of Joy: When "Diablo" heard out her story, and still didn't run away in fear or disgust, she went completely silent for a moment, and then cried out how happy she was that he's the first person ever who didn't run away from or abandon her after finding out. The crying experience is so cathartic that she actually cries herself to sleep, and Diablo tenderly tucks her in.
  • Tranquil Fury: Diablo notes that when she genuinely gets angry, it's a terrifying, "deep, quiet anger."
  • Truly Single Parent: She effectively gives birth to Krebskrum without having sexual intercourse. Though Diablo does penetrate her with his finger to give Krebskrum the mana she needs to be born "correctly."
  • Tsundere: Type B. She's pleasant and cordial with just about everyone she meets, it's only those to whom she gets close that see her honestly snark, quarrel, and pout.
  • Verbal Tic: As typical for a Cat Girl, she adds a "nyan" sound to some of her words.
  • Was It All a Lie?: When she's betrayed and handed over to Sadraa "as a Demonic Being Worshipper," she says this word for word To Alicia.
  • Wolverine Claws: When she fights in melee.

Shera L. Greenwood

Voiced by: Yuu Serizawa (Japanese), Sarah Wiedenheft (English)
Big Breasted Elven "Summoner" (Archer)
Shera in the Manga 
Shera in the Light Novel 

An Elf who is one of the two Summoners who summoned Diablo. The reason she summoned him was to have the strength to live free.

  • Adaptation Personality Change: In the manga, she's considerably more aware of the effect her body has on Diablo than in the light novel, and the advantage it gives her, but still doesn't try to exploit it for her own gain.
  • Affectionate Gesture to the Head: Diablo pets her on the head to help her grieve for her dead brother.
  • Animal Eye Spy: In the 3rd volume, she gets a summoned beast that lets her see through its eyes.
  • Archer Archetype: Even though she aspires to be a summoner, her skill as an archer is higher. She doesn't let this deter her from being a summoner, however.
  • Aura Vision: She can see the flow of magic power.
  • Bad Liar: Along with Suspiciously Specific Denial. She identifies herself by her true name, and then tries to claim she's not affiliated with the Greenwood Kingdom, despite being the princess. On the other hand, whenever Rem catches her underclothed around Diablo, in their bedroom, as a result of Shera's erotic shenanigans, Shera goes on to claim she's underclothed because she was too hot. Though whether she's doing so because she's trolling Rem, or truly doesn't understand why Rem's upset is unclear.
  • Bathtub Bonding: She hates bathing alone and will take any excuse to barge in on Rem or Diablo to bathe with either or both of them, and she doesn't take "no" for an answer.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Betty to Rem's Veronica.
  • Big Eater: She's constantly seen gorging herself on large helpings of meals. In the manga adaptation, when Celestine treats her to food, she eats 17 portions, and asks for ten more. Rem and "Diablo" simultaneously imagine all that goes to her chest.
  • Bi the Way: While she likes getting groped by Diablo, she loves to play with Rem's ears, not to mention the rest of her body. She even went so far as to demonstrate the act of pouring magic power into someone when she talks about Diablo doing it.
  • Boring, but Practical: Her use of her "Turkey Shoot" summoned monster is highly intelligent. While it certainly lacks offensive abilities and has no flashy moves or awe-inspiring appearance, its Animal Eye Spy ability makes it the perfect scout and target spotter. In addition, since it's very unassuming, hostile entities are quite likely to ignore it, thus allowing Shera, its summoner, to use it to calmly survey the scene at her leisure without any risk to herself, as she demonstrates of her own volition in Volume 3, Chapter 5. Lastly, as a Summon, if some enemy does strike it down, it returns to Shera's hands as a gem, only needing a bit of time to recover before it can be summoned again.
  • Breast Expansion: Volume 11 goes on to prove that all her big meals indeed go to her chest as she tries to put on her traditional hunting outfit and can't get it to fit right anymore because it's too tight in the chest area, and she can't adjust it any further. Rem's response?
    Rem:"You useless meat elf!"
  • Cassandra Truth: She mastered Aura Vision as a small child, but everyone in the Greenwood Kingdom brushed her off. When she met Medios, her talent was officially recognized to the level that she could easily run a slaver caravan if she wanted.
  • Child Prodigy: She was officially recognized as a level 40 archer, as a small child too young to be an adventurer. She also mastered Aura Vision as a child which is something Medios took 12 years to learn, and Medios only beat Celestine, the head of the magician's guild by three days, though nobody in the Greenwood Kingdom was convinced.
  • The Cloudcuckoolander Was Right: The ring she takes from Diablo's vault? An engagement ring, that allows her to bear the children of another race. She used it to make Diablo her husband and the king of the elves. She also agrees instantly to Raflesia's proposal as the elves will need the aid of the Dark Elves to deal with the coming Fallen menace.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: She's been hiding it, but she is indeed a powerful archer, capable of using Martial Arts, as she demonstrates in volume 4 when the party is set upon by an assassin.
  • Cry into Chest: When Diablo touches her shoulder after she helplessly saw her brother cut down by Galford, she immediately turns and cries into his chest. He responds by petting her head.
  • D-Cup Distress: A bit self-conscious that her breasts are way bigger than other Elves'. She changes her tune a little bit, almost to the point of Buxom Is Better, when she learns that Diablo really likes her breasts.
  • The Ditz: She thinks a man and woman getting into the same bed on its own is enough to make the woman pregnant.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Taken out of context, her lines as Diablo is using her as a model while learning "Aura Vision" wouldn't be out of place in a hentai work.
  • Friendly Sniper: When she gets her first official summoned beast, a "Turkey Shot," Diablo suggests using its ability "shared vision" to strike a coin from out of sight by using the beast's ability to paint the target. Shera's arrow splits the coin in half.
  • Gag Boobs: Usually in regards to Diablo accidentally touching them and being fascinated with them, which she picks up on and tries to use to her advantage.
  • Gainaxing: The anime loves to highlight just how bouncy her chest is. It's a much, much shorter list if one indicates where they aren't bouncing around like ping-pong balls.
  • Genius Ditz: While she's nowhere near stupid, and is actually quite observant, picking up skills very quickly in anything related to either magic or archery, her thought process is a bit disconnected, and she often needs an outside influence to connect the dots. For example, she masters mana manipulation from being Diablo's model as he's learning it, and without practice, but wouldn't be able to plan out a budget for living expenses if the team didn't have Rem's resourcefulness to draw from.
  • Go-Go Enslavement: She does this to herself, of her own volition, when she tries to get Diablo out of his funk due to his depression from overusing his MP. It happens to her again in Medios's tent while Diablo is learning Slavery magic as Medios puts her in an outfit designed for a sex-slave because it's the only thing she has that fits (or so she claims).
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Diablo describes her hair as so blonde that it could easily be mistaken for molten gold, and she's easily one of the sweetest and kindest women in fiction or reality.
  • Happily Married: To Diablo in Volume 7, finally ending the bloodline politics that she keeps finding herself entangled in and making Diablo king of the elves.
  • I Just Want to Be Free: She ran away from the elf kingdom and chose the path of a summoner so she wouldn't be shackled and treated like a puppet by her people's traditions, not to mention becoming a Baby Factory.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: The reason she's so desperate to make Diablo her summon, is that she's actually desperately lonely, and wants companions. When she sees that Rem and Diablo will happily fight on her behalf, she's overjoyed.
  • Immodest Orgasm: She's every bit as loud and sensitive as Rem.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: To the point of All-Loving Hero. She doesn't have a drop of malice, cruelty, deceit, or vice of any kind in her entire body. While she is aware that there are times where fighting and even killing is unavoidable, she simply can not bring herself to bear a grudge against anyone, not even her depraved elder brother, who abused her horribly, and despite being well aware that he fully deserved the death he got, she still can't stop herself from mourning him.
  • The Ingenue: While she's not stupid, she's very immature, and childishly innocent. She thinks women get pregnant simply by sleeping beside a man. It seems she's never been around livestock, pets, or told how "the birds and the bees" work. She also engages in wildly erotic activity with Diablo, Rem, and Krebskulm because she knows it feels good, and wants them to feel good too, but doesn't fully grasp the implications or ramifications of her behavior.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Diablo notes that her eyes are crystal clear blue like the sky on a sunny day, and she's undeniably a very sweet and innocent woman.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: She seemingly doesn't understand the implications of her stripperific Go-Go Enslavement outfit on Diablo. She just knew that Sylvie told her they'd make him "energetic." She also doesn't seem to fully comprehend how the "birds and the bees" work, as she later does some very erotic things to Rem, and Krebskrum, simply because she's aware it feels good, and makes Diablo "energetic" without fully comprehending the meaning of her actions.
  • Instant Expert: At least where it concerns magic or archery, or both. It took hours of practice for Diablo to learn Mana manipulation to the point that he could attempt to remove Shera's slave collar, despite the fact that he's level 150 and already a magical powerhouse, and Medios, the one teaching him took 12 years to learn it. She masters it completely, without practicing it herself, by simply being his practice model, and demonstrates her competence on Rem the moment they get to bed for the night. When she manages her first official summon, Turkey Shot, Diablo suggests trying to snipe a coin using only the beast's sight to paint the target. She splits the coin in half, with her very first shot.
    • When Diablo recruited Salasa to train him to be a warrior, Shera insisted on training too, and went from level 0 to level 80 in three days.
  • Irony: She set off, running away from the Elf kingdom, so she could be free because her own elder brother not only openly proclaimed his intent to make her a Baby Factory, but abused her and insists on calling her his slave. When she actually becomes Diablo's slave, albeit due to a magical accident, she's treated as a spouse, with genuine love, tenderness, and respect.
  • I Thought Everyone Could Do That: She can see the flow of magic power ever since she was a kid and didn't know that for others it takes an effort to learn how to do it in the first place.
  • Jabba Table Manners: Played for laughs, and somewhat justified. Her first on-screen meal, and she's seen eating food, by the plate, trying to shove it in all at once. According to her testimony, she was not getting enough to eat due to having fled the Greenwood Kingdom with little more than the clothes on her back, and not being able to buy herself a proper meal in a long time.
  • Just in Time: She arrives on the scene over Rem's body as she's on the brink of death. Not hesitating in the slightest, she dumps all nine of the healing potions Diablo provided over Rem, hoping to save her. She just barely succeeds.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: When Diablo accidentally flipped her switch, it got flipped. Her favorite hobby becomes driving herself and her female True Companions into a state of post-orgasmic afterglow, right in front of Diablo, to make him "energetic." Even Krebskrum is not exempt. She doesn't fully comprehend the implications or ramifications of doing this, however.
  • Lust Object: She is this, to her own brother, who is so intent on making her his Baby Factory, that he puts a 150 million ferris bounty on her.
  • Made a Slave: Combined with Hoist by His Own Petard: Exactly like Rem, her summon and enslave ritual got rebounded to her by "Diablo's" magic reflection.
  • Ms. Fanservice: If there's a scene calling for fanservice, she's the one most likely to star in it.
  • Nice Girl: So kind that she doesn't even hold a grudge or hatred against anyone, including her older brother.
  • Parental Substitute: To Krebskrum. Krebskrum latches on to her as if she's her mother. Rem, who, more or less, gave birth to Krebskrum doesn't seem to mind.
  • Pointy Ears: Has long pointy ears as an Elf.
  • Property of Love: She openly calls herself Diablo's property, after he declares Rem is his property as well.
  • Rape as Drama: While in the custody of her deranged elder brother, he chains her up, uses a Geas spell so she can't move and then sics a slime on her for his own sick amusement before intending to "produce the next heir."
  • Rapunzel Hair: Much like in Rem's case, her hair goes past her waist.
  • Rebellious Princess: She is the princess of the Greenwood Kingdom who ran away due to not wanting to make children with her elder brother.
  • Reluctant Fanservice Girl: When she's in Medios's tent, she's well aware of the effect a sex-slave outfit has on Diablo, but the only other alternative is complete nudity, and that's something she's even less comfortable with. This is an apparent exception because as long as she's only around people she knows, trusts, and loves, she sees absolutely nothing wrong being underclothed or in behaving erotically.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: She is the princess of the Greenwood Kingdom.
  • Sensor Character: Her aura vision ability is an outstanding aid in the field. She has disrupted an ambush against herself, Diablo and Rem, and pinpointed exactly where Gregor was when he was bearing down on Rem, Emil, and Celestine. This doesn't help when she's in a city full of the six races and is then set upon by brigands from those six races, as there's too much "background noise."
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: To Rem. While they become True Companions, together with Diablo, and are almost universally civil with one another, whenever the issue of Diablo comes up, or their relative chest sizes, they immediately default into comedic quarreling and pranking each other.
  • Skilled, but Naïve: She's officially considered a level 30 summoner by the adventurer's guild and a level 40 archer by the Greenwood kingdom when she was a child (Volume 5 reveals that her bow is suited for levels 70 & up so she is at least a level 70 archer), a powerful combination in most combat situations, but when it comes to day to day life, she's even more clueless than Diablo, who is a near helpless otaku.
  • Sleep Cute: Think Rem's adorable? Well, when Shera glomps her in her sleep and treats her as a body pillow, it triggers Cuteness Overload in the readers of the manga!
  • Stay in the Kitchen: By her own brother, who wants to make her have at least three of his children and do nothing but take care of the household chores. The elf kingdom actually has the gall to be shocked that she ran away.
  • Strangled by the Red String: In universe. When Diablo gets a chance to examine her slavery choker in Medios's tent, and the flow of her magic, he comes to the unfortunate realization that they're hopelessly entangled together, and suspects that the choker is either responsible for or accelerating her growing feelings for him.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Wears Grade A thigh high boots.

How well does it match the trope?
