    Tropes common to all Managers 

  • Color-Coded Characters:
    • Seen on their school uniforms and tracksuits: Aki (green for her uniform and orange for her tracksuit), Haruna (orange for her uniform and green for her tracksuit), Natsumi (pink) and Fuyuka (teal).
    • In GO, Aoi (pink), Akane (blue) and Midori (green). Ironically, Aoi's name means "blue" and Akane's means "red".
    • In Ares, Tsukushi has a green ribbon and Anna has a pink one. However, both of them wear orange tracksuits.
  • Cute Sports Club Manager: Of course.
  • First-Name Basis: Actually, most of the girls are mostly called by their first name, as opposed to most of the boys, who are called by their last name.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Aki (phlegmatic), Haruna (sanguine), Natsumi (choleric) and Fuyuka (melancholic).
  • School Uniforms Are the New Black: Usually seen in their school uniforms, even in the 2nd and 3rd seasons, when they rarely even go to school. Techniqually Aki and Haruna switch between their school uniforms and their tracksuits and Natsumi is mostly seen in her casual outfit in the third season, but their wardrobe is still pretty limited.
  • Theme Naming:
    • The managers in the first series are named after the seasons. Aki means autumn, Haruna means spring, Natsumi means summer and Fuyuka means winter.
    • The managers in GO are named after colours. Aoi means blue, Akane means red and Midori means green.

    Kino Aki / Silvia Woods

Voiced By: Fumiko Orikasa (Japanese), Sarah Hauser (English, anime), Emma Tate (UK English, games), Kira Buckland (US English, games), Cynthia De Pando (Latin American Spanish, anime)

  • Adaptation Dye-Job:
    • In the game, her school skirt, socks and hair clip are all green, while in the anime, they're grey, dark blue and pink respectively.
    • In Ares, her eyes were changed from green to black. Her hair also has a different shade of green.
  • Childhood Friends: With Domon and Ichinose. Later on we find out there was another friend named Nishigaki.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Green hair and green eyes.
  • Did Not Get The Guy: Despite all the Ship Tease, she is the only girl in the Endou Love Triangle that doesn't end up with him in GO.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: Inverted. While she may not be that boyish, Natsumi is more feminine than her, but also a worse cook.
  • Girl Next Door: She's in the same classroom and neighborhood as Endou and they go to school together in some episodes.
  • Hair Decorations: Sports a pink hairclip in the anime, green in the game and two white hairclips when she was younger.
  • Implied Love Interest: She blushed when Tenma asked her if she had received any calls from America, implying she might have a romantic relationship with Ichinose, but it's never confirmed if she does.
  • Luminescent Blush: Techniqually not the only character who ever blushed in this show, but she's possibly the one who did it the most.
  • Nice Girl
  • Parental Substitute: In GO, she's this to Tenma, who's living away from his parents for an undisclosed reason. They are revealed to be relatives, so it makes sense.
  • Sailor Fuku: Her Tonegawa Tousen uniform is a seifuku with a green skirt.
  • Supreme Chef: She has to be since she's usually the one who cooks for the team, although all of the managers except Natsumi can qualify.
  • Team Mom: She's usually the one who takes care of the boys when they need any kind of support, whether it's physical or moral.
  • Theme Naming: All the managers are named after the seasons. Her name means Autumn.
  • Un-Confession: Near the end of Fire/Blizzard, she tries to confess to Endou - but gets interrupted by the juniors.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has brownish-green hair

    Otonashi Haruna / Celia Hills
Click here to see her in GO 
Voiced By: Hinako Sasaki (Japanese) and Maria Darling (English, games), Rebeca Gómez (Latin American Spanish, anime)

  • Adapted Out: She doesn't appear in the manga of the original series. Strangely enough, she appears in the GO manga.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In the video games, her school skirt, ribbon and socks are all blue, while in the anime, they're grey, orange and blue respectively.
  • Berserk Button: Everytime Kogure pranks or insults other people her berserk button is pushed.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's usually nice and polite, but can get very angry if you mess up with her or anyone else, Kogure being usually the one who does.
  • Bonding Over Missing Parents: Attempts this with Kogure to make him feel better, understanding his feelings to be abandoned by his parents since she herself lost them in an accident. However, Kogure believes his case is not the same as hers, saying that she doesn't understand the feeling of being betrayed.
  • Continuity Nod: In the last episode of the original series, she mentions that she wants to become a teacher and a soccer club advisor when she grows up. Ten years later in GO, that's exactly what she becomes.
  • Distressed Damsel: When she was set up to be sacrificed to the Demon Lord.
  • Genki Girl: Downplayed. She is cheerful and energetic but not creepily so.
  • The Glasses Do Nothing: She actually wears hers from time-to-time (like during researching sprees), but not always.
  • Happily Adopted: She was happy with her new family even before finding out that Kidou avoided her for six years because he made a deal with his stepfather to win three consecutive tournaments in order to live together with her again. Even if they don't reunite to live in the same house, she doesn't mind because she's happy with her curent family.
  • Intrepid Reporter: Back when she was in the journalism club, she gave this impression.
  • Ironic Name: Lampshaded when she first joins as a manger. "Otonashi" means quiet, which she is clearly not.
  • Last-Name Basis: Unlike other female characters, she's mostly called by her last name. Usually, only Kidou calls her by her first name which makes sense, considering they're siblings. She's still on a First-Name Basis in the fandom, though.
  • Meganekko: She usually wears her glasses on her head, but sometimes she wears them normally.
  • Motor Mouth: When she first joins as a manager and introduces herself, she does it in an over-the-top manner which makes the boy question if her name is really Otonashi.
  • Nice Girl: She is one, but she has her limits.
  • Theme Naming: All the managers are named after the seasons. Her name means Spring.
  • Tsundere: Type B, towards Kogure. More often than not she's nice to him, unless he messes up with people.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has dark blue hair.

    Raimon Natsumi / Nelly Raimon
Click here to see her in GO 
Eng Dub: Nelly Raimon
Voiced By: Sanae Kobayashi (Japanese), Sarah Hauser (English, anime) and Jo Wyatt (English, games), Erika Rendón (Latin American Spanish, anime)

  • Adaptational Jerkass: In the manga, she's a lot meaner in the beginning and more forceful when it comes to disbanding the soccer club compared to the anime and game, to the point where st one point she tried to bulldoze the club. But like the anime and game, she gets better after some Character Development.
  • Berserk Button: According to what Endou says to Tenma, not eating what she cooks causes her to get into a temper tantrum.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Veronica to Aki's Betty and Endou's Archie, although she's nicer than most examples. She wins.
  • Character Development: Gets the most out of the managers. See Defrosting Ice Queen below.
  • Compliment Backfire: After calling Endou a "noteworthy horse", the compliment backfires because Endou misunderstands she called him a horse and makes a big deal out of it.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Auburn hair and eyes of the same colour.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: At first she was completely against the soccer club and therefore she tried to give them challenges that they wouldn't pass in order to disband it, but later accepts it and becomes a manager. While at first she seemed arrogant, intimidating and uncaring about the boys' safety, she later starts to care about all of them and even leaves the team in the third season to help Endou find his grandfather. In GO she's married to the biggest soccer freak.
  • Foreign Exchange Student:
    • Subverted in the original series. At the beginning of season 3, she left the team under the pretext she was going to study abroad, but she actually travelled to Liocott Island to investigate Daisuke's case.
    • Played straight in the Ares/Orion timeline. After Raimon lost the match against Barcelona Orb, she decided to go to the world to see the soccer in other countries. She came to help Inazuma Japan in their match against Shining Satans, where it was revealed she transferred to a school in Russia.
  • Happily Married: With Endou in most adaptation except the Dark version of the GO game.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: The red-haired one among Endou's love interests and the one who marries him.
  • Last Girl Wins: She's the last girl from Endou's love triangle whom he became friends with and the one who gets the guy.
  • Lethal Chef: Justified in the beginning when she knows nothing about cooking and her first attempt at making onigiri ends up making it too salty, less justified ten years later in GO where the food still tastes terrible for no reason other than being played for laughs.
  • Long Hair Is Feminine: The manager with the longest hair and the feminine ojou of the team.
  • Missing Mom: In the first game, she mentions that her mother passed away.
  • Non-Uniform Uniform: The colour scheme of her school uniform is different from that of the other girls, perhaps because of her position in the school. While other girls wear a gray skirt, navy blue socks, purple shoes and an orange/green/blue ribbon depending on the year (green for second-years like her), Natsumi wears a magenta skirt and ribbon and the colours of her shoes and socks are reversed.
  • Official Couple: With Endou.
  • Opposites Attract: She marries Endou.
  • The Ojou: Fits The Ice Queen-type.
  • Put on a Bus: In the beginning of the third season, tells that she was going to study abroad, but it's later revealed she instead came to Liocott Island to investigate Daisuke's case.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair grows to hip-lenght in the third season and it might be longer considering how wavy/curly it is.
  • Reluctant Fanservice Girl: When the managers had to dress up as maid cafes. Aki and Haruna went along with it, but Natsumi, not so much.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She is notably taller than the other female cast members sans Hitomiko, as well as most of the boys except the really tall ones and the adults.
  • Theme Naming: All the managers are named after the seasons. Her name means Summer.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: After becoming a manager she becomes more caring and less intimidating.
  • Tsundere: Type A, but she mellows out later. Especially for Endou.
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Downplayed. Her father isn't that ugly per se, but he isn't exactly conventionally attractive, either, while Nastumi is arguably one of the prettiest girls in the series.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: Her casual outfit in the third season consists of shorts.

    Kudou Fuyuka / Camellia Travis
Click here to see her in GO 
Voiced By: Haruka Tomatsu (Japanese), Angélica Villa (Latin American Spanish, anime)

  • Adapted Out: She is one of several characters who don't appear in Yabuno Tenya's manga. This trope is also implied to be the case in the Ares timeline, because even though Kudou appears, she doesn't.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Endou remembers her as his childhood friend "Fuyuppe". And even if she doesn't seem to know him she just goes along with it. Of course, she is the "Fuyuppe" Endou remembers.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With Endou. Either the Unlucky Childhood Friend or Victorious Childhood Friend, depending on which version of GO you get. She loses to Natsumi in the Light GO game, anime and manga canon, but wins in the Dark version of the GO game.
  • Foreshadowing: She's the only one besides Endou who can understand Daisuke's writing, something even Endou himself was surprised. It turns out her deceased father was a friend of Daisuke and he used to read his notebooks to her before he died.
  • First Girl After All: In GO Dark. Though she's the last girl introduced, she and Endou knew each other when they were kids. They aren't exactly the Official Couple though, as this is canon in only one route.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She sported these when she was a little girl.
  • Happily Adopted: Even after she regains her memories and finds out she's adopted, she doesn't care because she still loves her father figure anyway.
    • Oblivious Adoption: Unlike Kidou, who was fully aware about his adoption, she had her childhood memories erased, so she grew up with the idea that Coach Kudou is her real father.
  • In-Series Nickname: In the dub, most of Inazuma Japan call her "Cammy". This is separate from Endou's childhood nickname for her, which is "Cam-Cam".
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Her overall appearance and personality are innocent.
  • Missing Mom: Similar to Kidou, her real parents died in a traffic accident when she was little, which was so serious she had her childhood memories erased through hypnotherapy and her stepfather isn't married, either.
  • Naïve Newcomer: When trying to help Endou come up with ideas for a new technique, Rika takes advantage of the situation and gives her some tips to help Endou, which are really just tips for a date. Due to having no choice, she believes her, but later realizes that she's been tricked after all the tips fail.
  • New Transfer Student: She apparently transferred to Raimon some time after they won the FFI, as she's seen graduating there in the last episode.
  • Nice Girl: She tries to be a good manager and does her job very well.
  • Shrinking Violet: Before Endou told off her bullies.
  • Theme Naming: All the managers are named after the seasons. Her name means Winter.
  • Trauma-Induced Amnesia: In the game, her amnesia was caused by shock. In the anime, however, it was purposefully induced through hypnotherapy so that she could live normally, as the traumatic memories left her nigh-catatonic.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has purple hair.

Inazuma Eleven GO

    Sorano Aoi / Skie Blue 
Voiced By: Sayaka Kitahara

  • Nice Girl: She didn't laugh at Tenma when he wasn't good at playing football in the flashback to their childhood.
  • Only Sane Man: Sometimes in Chrono Stone.

    Yamana Akane / Rosie Redd

    Seto Midori / Jade Greene

  • Action Girl: If you recruit her in the postgame, you'll find she's actually a quite capable striker.
  • Cute Sports Club Manager: Though technically she calls herself Tenma's personal cheerleader.
  • Expy: Although she's supposed to be the Natsumi of the managers, she is more similar to Touko Zaizen.
  • Fangirl: Of Okita Souji, which puts her at odds with Nishiki. She's a big fan of samurai movies and Japanese period dramas in general.
  • Fiery Redhead
  • Genki Girl: She's very excitable and positively driven, supporting Raimon whenever things seem down and inspiring her team to do better.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: To the seniors in Raimon in the beginning when they were too negative about going against Fifth Sector.
  • Hair Decorations: Sports a blue ribbon.
  • Hot-Blooded: Seto pushes Hot-Blooded to the extreme, through getting herself worked up while commenting in matches or when motivating Tenma and Shinsuke.
  • Non-Uniform Uniform: Her uniform is based on that of a Japanese Delinquent, with a skirt much longer than that of the school's norm (and it's also dark teal instead of blue) and with the removal of an accesory, in this case the ribbon.
  • Ship Tease: She has a small crush on Nishiki and the two got along well when they were in Raimon before the original Go! Series began, excited that she sent a letter to them.
  • Theme Naming: Midori means green.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The tomboy to Akane's girly girl.


Inazuma Eleven Ares

    Ootani Tsukushi / Aurelia Dingle 
Voiced By: Sanae Kobayashi (Strikers), Akane Fujita (Ares)

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In the original games, she has blue as a base colour. In the Strikers game and in Ares, other than her skirt being changed to grey like any other girl except Natsumi, her ribbon is changed to green.
  • Ascended Extra: She goes from a normal scout character in the original games to Inakuni Raimon's manager in Ares.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Brown hair and brown eyes.
  • Genki Girl: Very cheerful and optimistic.
  • Hair Decorations: She ties her small ponytail with a purple ribbon.
  • Jumped at the Call: She immediately becomes Inakuni Raimon's manager when they first arrive at the school.
  • Ms. Exposition: Explains a bit to Inakuni Raimon about the bracelets and Eleven Licenses.

    Mikado Anna / Regina Mulgrave
Voiced by: Rie Takahashi

  • Hypocritical Humour: She doesn't want to retake Goujin's licence picture when he feels embarassed by it, but still wants hers to be retaken when Ootani takes one of her without expecting.
  • Only Sane Man: With an eccentric coach, a fellow manager who's more genki than genius, and a team that's going along with everything solely on their love for soccer, Anna is the most down to earth and mature member of the cast, often pointing out unnecessary quirks and trying to make sense of the whole situation.
  • Ship Tease: With Nosaka.
  • Student Council President: She is this for Raimon and is in charge of all clubs' management, including having the decision of either disbanding the new soccer club or not.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has light orange hair, different from the more plausible orange-red colour.

How well does it match the trope?
