Aiz Wallenstein

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aiz_wallenstein.png
Voiced by: Saori Onishi (JP), Shelley Calene-Black (EN), Ariela Yuri (Latin America)

One of the strongest members of the Loki Familia.

Aiz is introduced at the start of the story saving the protagonist, Bell Cranel, from a high-level minotaur that had escaped her familia's grasp while returning from a dungeon expedition. Unbeknownst to her, this event would set Bell off on a journey to one day catch up to his savior, and fight at her side.
  • The Ace: Of the Loki Familia adventurers, who themselves are a Familia of Aces. She's among the strongest Adventurers out there, with very few being able to compare to her. Even when Bell grows in power to prove himself to her, she still is unquestionably stronger then him.
  • Badass Adorable: Can cleave through armies of monsters like a hot blade through butter, but is still a kind hearted and shy beauty who you can't help but want to give a big hug.
  • Beautiful Dreamer: When she takes a nap during her break in Bell's training, Bell admires her sleeping face and has an inner struggle over whether to kiss Aiz in her sleep.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Saves Bell from a minotaur at the start of the story.
  • Birds of a Feather: She notes that she and Bell are quite similar, specifically mentioning how their lack of parents is something she can't help but feel a connection with. Their motivations are also closely related, with both of them desiring to become stronger and ironically both consider the other as an example for how to do so.
  • Blood Knight:
    • This isn't very obvious in the main series, but Aiz has a complex over the fact that the main reason she became as strong as she is now is because part of her came to really, really enjoy bloody combat and struggles to keep her "black flame" under control.
    • This trope is also a big part of her attraction to Bell. Even if too socially inept to understand the reason, Aiz realized that interacting with him allows her to switch off from combat mode and thus have an easier time feeling and expressing positive emotions.
    • Also, Aiz is deadly afraid that Bell's drive to become stronger will make him slip down the same dark path she fell into. When he asked her to stand aside during his fight with the Minotaur, she thought for a moment that it was already too late for him, only to realize that he was standing up to an overwhelming foe like the living embodiment of the ideal hero that every adventurer at some point of their lives aspire to be.
  • Blow You Away: The only magic Aiz is capable of using is a type of wind barrier, Airiel. Then again, it's all she needs as it cuts everything around her apart while simultaneously dispersing projectiles and liquids that would harm her.
  • Can't Hold Her Liquor: She's forbidden from drinking alcohol as she went berserk the last time she did so, nearly killing Loki in the process.
  • Celibate Heroine: She refuses to date anyone. Subverted however with Bell who she obviously has feelings for. Double Subverted because she's also Oblivious to Love, bringing this to a full circle.
  • Child Prodigy: Already Level 2 at 8 years old.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: In an odd fashion, she refuses to let Bete and Bell meet because she is under the impression that Bete is Bell's idol. She doesn't like the idea of seeing that at all, and even goes as far as to lie to Bete about where Bell is to prevent it.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: She's a natural airhead. Bell even notices this when he first trains with her. She once perused teaching advice from a book about rabbits. Three days later, in order to reward Bell, she gave him a carrot. (Admittedly this is partially Tiona and Finn's fault.)
  • Cool Big Sis: Oh, she is this to every younger hero; in particular Bell and Liselet.
  • Curtains Match the Window: She has golden eyes like her hair.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: In Sword Oratoria, it was hinted something happened to her parents when she was young.
  • Decoy Protagonist: Billed as the protagonist of the Sword Oratoria spin-off, but really the main focus of the story is Lefiya. note 
  • Does Not Know Her Own Strength: While it seems like she is a Drill Sergeant Nasty who puts Bell through Training from Hell, in reality this happened completely accidentally. She wanted to be stern, but she never aimed to seriously hurt Bell. Aiz does not know how to restrain herself, so she ends up seriously hurting Bell without meaning to.
  • Dork Knight: Though elegant and poised in combat, Aiz is just as socially and emotionally awkward as Bell, with her head halfway in the clouds. Bell even notes to himself "Is she an airhead?" When she spontaneously starts making impractical martial arts poses at the start of training him.
  • Dramatic Irony: Part of her interest in Bell is to find out how he is able to raise his level in a month while it took her a year to do it. She is unaware that his love for her is the source of his rapid growth.
  • Driven by Envy: In Sword Oratoria, she has shown a slight jealousy of Mages and their large Area-of-effect spells. She has also displayed similar amount of jealousy towards Bell's ability to become strong in an extremely short time, it's part of the reason she decides to train him, in hopes of finding how he does it.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Loki has basically laid a claim on her, and isn't going to let anyone else have her. Eina mentions that she finds her attractive. Lefiya is obviously in love with her. Even the rest of the female members of Loki Familia couldn't help but find Ais cute when her fear of water crops up.
  • Famed in Story: Due to her strength, she's very well known.
  • Foil: Sword Oratoria reveals she's very similar to Bell. They both became adventurers when they lost their family. They both grew up on stories of a hero meeting a girl and grew strong at a ridiculous rate (though Bell is even more ridiculous due to his rare skill). But Bell kept his ideals with him while Aiz has thrown them away.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's kind and has blond hair.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: She's the daughter of a human and a spirit, which is notable since this was considered to be impossible by everyone else in the setting.
  • Hero's Muse: Aiz is Bell's inspiration to become a hero as he wants to reach her level in order to stand by her side as her equal and lover. She's the reason why his Realis Phrase skill activated and is increasing his stats so fast since it's powered by Bell's wish of catching up to Aiz.
  • Hero of Another Story: She's seen dealing with her own problems while Bell deals with his.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: A sword user who is one of the best-known adventurers in Orario.
  • Ideal Hero: Aiz never hesitates to protect the weak, support the emotionally vulnerable or at the very least lend a caring shoulder to cry on.
  • I'm Not a Hero, I'm...: She believes that, unlike Bell, she can't be called a hero because her main goal is revenge-driven.
  • Improbable Age: She's 16, but has been a 10-year veteran in the dungeon.
  • In a Single Bound: Using magic she can bound across town with simple jumps.
  • Lady of War: The medieval swords-woman type.
  • Made of Indestructium: Her Desperate was personally forged by Goibniu himself to have the Durandal property, rendering it unable to bend, chip, or break but it can still dull. This is a necessity for her, as her inability to control her strength results in her breaking a lot of weaponry by mistake.
  • Magic Knight: Combines swordsmanship with her Airiel magic. Magic is actually her highest stat.
  • Master Swordswoman: There's no one who surpasses her in swordsmanship. Hence her title, "Sword Princess".
  • Minidress of Power: She always goes into battle wearing a white minidress covered by some armor.
  • Nice Girl: Soft-hearted, compassionate and kind.
  • Not So Above It All: Despite her stoic appearance, there are a few instances where she acts her age. Such as her pouting and internally blaming Riveria for Bell running away from her as well as refusing to admit to Bell that their "training" to sleep anywhere is really just because she felt sleepy.
  • Not So Different: As shown in Sword Oratoria, she shares Bell's impulse to become stronger, even if it is for a different reason.
  • Not So Stoic: Sword Oratoria shows she's more subdued than emotionless, as she is shown interacting with members of her Familia quite easily. She's shown to lash out at Loki when the latter is feeling particularly pervy and even blush when certain topics are brought up, such as Bell.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: Her fellow Familia members can instantly tell something is bothering her due to how rarely such a thing occurs. Half the reason as to why they are aware of Bell in the first place is because they were curious about who could have such an effect on her.
  • Oblivious to Love: Is totally unaware that Bell loves her. At one point she even misunderstands his claim that he has someone he wants to catch up to as being about Bete rather than her. Also happens to be oblivious towards Lefiya's obvious crush on her too. Notably, she is also oblivious to her own feelings on the matter.
  • Perspective Flip: The Sword Oratoria spin-off retells the story as the main series but from the perspective of Aiz and the Loki familia. Bell and Hestia are still there, but they are now Demoted to Extra.
  • The Quiet One: While she is capable of talking, she doesn't talk much.
  • Red Baron: She is often known as "The Sword Princess", given her swordsmanship.
  • Reluctant Fanservice Girl:
    • She was clearly embarrassed by Bell getting an eyeful, but strangely does not retaliate. In fact, she was more concerned that Bell did his usual "blush then run away" act.
    • Her really revealing outfit is the result of Loki threatening to bite her tongue out if she refused to wear it.
  • Sacrificed Basic Skill for Awesome Training: She is easily one of the strongest adventurers in the story, but has a hard time understanding others or even her own feelings.
  • Sexy Backless Outfit: Her usual combat outfit exposes a great deal of her back. She is actually somewhat uncomfortable about it, but continues to wear it due to Loki's insistence.
  • Sexy Mentor: She's Bell's primary love interest and helps him train on occasion.
  • Skewed Priorities: During her fight with the strange plant monsters in the pandemonium of the Monster Feriae, her sword breaks. The first thing she worried about was the scolding she was going to get from Goibniu and Loki for breaking another weapon rather than the fact that three nigh-invulnerable monsters were closing in to kill her.note 
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Sentai Filmworks has her given name transliterated as "Ais".
  • The Stoic: She rarely shows any emotion. This is the reason why her obsession with Bell is a well-known fact to her friends, as these are some of the only times she breaks character.
  • Story-Breaker Power: The author's editors feared that once Aiz teamed up with Bell, nothing would challenge them. This was ultimately averted, however: by ramping up the threat level of the monsters that Aiz fights in her own story, she ends up nearly dying several times. It's still clear she's quite strong, even among adventurers of the same level.note  However, she is not invincible.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She resembles a younger version of her mother.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: While stoic and quiet, she's warm-hearted and kind, and is adorably shy when other people show kindness towards her.
  • Super Drowning Skills: She can't swim, as when she was seven years old, Riveria punished Ais for calling her an "old woman" by tying adamantite to her and throwing her in water, calling it "swimming training".
  • The Teetotaler: Drinks water instead of alcohol while in a bar. Justified as she's 16.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: She loves the potato puffs that Hestia sells. Exaggerated in Days of Goddess, where she apparently only eats those.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior:
    • She already has most of her main tropes on literally her first day as an adventurer: a thirst for raw power, a self-driven preference (if not enjoyment) for battles, zero fear to monsters and zero care to her own injuries, and problems controlling her own strength. The leaders of the Loki familia were suitably troubled, and decided any physical training for her must give way to mental training, and Riveria was assigned as her Morality Pet.
    • During Orario's darkest days, Finn is forced to let her take the field over Riveria's complaints because of how low on manpower they are. Ais shows troubling indifference to cutting down and even dismembering the members of Evilus, though she was primarily motivated by her desire to keep the injured Riveria from suffering any more.
  • Weapon of Choice: A sword called Desperate. It's unbreakable.
  • What Is This Feeling?:
    • Her reaction to meeting Bell again. It took her a while before she realized that she wanted to apologize to him.
    • There are also a few moments in Sword Oratoria novels where she doesn't understand the feelings she has related to Bell. There are points where she feels things close to jealousy, but the actual idea that she might be feeling envious doesn't seem to cross her mind.
  • What the Fu Are You Doing?: When she started to train Bell, Aiz hilariously starts making striking awkward martial arts poses not out of place in a bad 1970's blaxploitation film, prompting Bell to wonder if she's an airhead.
  • When She Smiles: It's rare, its subtle, but when she smiles she is practically an angel.
  • Willfully Weak: She does not like use her wind magic Airiel when fighting non-monster opponents, and only uses it when she is really getting in over her head.
  • The Workaholic: She spends a lot of time in the dungeon to the point that everyone in her familia tells her to take a break.
  • You Remind Me of X:
    • Bell reminds her of her purer younger self. This is the reason for her obsession with him, as he possesses the innocence she feels she has lost.
    • In Sword Oratoria, there is a point where he reminds her of her father, equating him with the image of a hero.This image, along with her realisation that Bell hadn't started down the same dark path as her, is what actually stops her from simply killing the Minotaur, despite how protective she is of Bell at that time.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Her standard outfit is a minidress and blue thigh-high boots that let us see some of her upper leg's skin.

    Loki 

Loki

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/loki_zenshin.png
Voiced by: Yurika Kubo (JP), Christina Kelly (EN), Victoria Funes Grimaux (Latin America)

The Goddess of the Loki Familia.

Known as the Goddess of Mischief, Loki is the head of one of the largest familias in the lower world, and strives to make Aiz one of the greatest adventurers in history, while also at odds with Hestia due to their differences in breast size.
  • A-Cup Angst: She can't handle being flat-chested. This is the source of most of the enmity and cat-fights between her and the big-breasted Hestia.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Aiz always turns away Loki's lecherous advances, often violently.
  • Authority in Name Only:
    • She's supposed to be the head of her familia, but it's quite apparent she's not the one in charge. Her far more mature subordinates like Aiz and Riveria are the ones who tell her what to do while she's busy goofing around like a child.
    • However, in the Sword Oratoria spin-off, she is shown to act responsibly and with authority when her 'minders' are away or when she's dealing with the other Gods as shown when she maneuvered expertly during the Denatus and her baiting Evilus into lowering their guard right after.
  • Ambiguously Bi: She will always try to get her hands on any of the girls in her familia, but a gag manga has her being swept off her feet by Bete's charms while he was in heat. Since it is a gag manga though, it might not be true.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her standard outfit displays her midriff.
  • Bifauxnen: She goes to Apollo Familia's ball wearing a red tuxedo and with her androgynous figure, she could easily pass off as a long-haired pretty boy.
  • Butch Lesbian: Very into girls, and acts like an incredibly perverted man while acting on it. She also overall doesn't act very feminine.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: Sports one whenever she's feeling particularly dirty or is about to blackmail someone. The above is just one of her many examples.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Much like Hestia, Loki doesn't want anyone getting near her favorite Familia member, in her case Aiz.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: It would do one well not to forget that for all her womanizing and sexual harassment she is still the trickster god of heaven.
  • Dirty Old Woman: Called one by her own familia, though it's hard not to when one sees the faces she makes while fondling her female children.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Loki almost always squints, with very rare occasions she fully opens her eyes.
  • Fiery Redhead: She's a loud, energetic redhead with her fights with Hestia showing she has a short temper too.
  • Hate Sink:
    • Brash and rude, obnoxiously clingy to the girls in her guild especially Aiz, goes out of her way to bully Hestia and her familia, is a Dirty Old Woman who enjoys groping the girls of her familia, makes very little contribution to her familia with Aiz and Riveria running the show. It appears even her own familia can't stand her and just barely tolerates her presence while learning to deal with her antics.
    • Somewhat rectified in Sword Oratoria where she is capable of acting more mature and responsible like a proper god of a familia, when her 'minders' are absent.
  • Historical Gender Flip: Loki was a man in the original Norse myths... well, most of the time anyway.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Makes it no secret how infatuated she is with Aiz, but Aiz always shoots every one of her moves down.
  • Hot Goddess: More than a little tomboyish, but she wears some rather tight revealing clothes.
  • Immortal Immaturity: Even more immature than Hestia, who at least knows restraint and will become serious when the time calls for it. Loki acts like a little child who needs to be kept on a leash by Aiz or Riveria. She can easily be bribed with petty things like wine.
  • In Vino Veritas: She's actually even MORE perverted when she's drunk. Aiz Wallenstein is seen brandishing a dagger before Loki updates her Falna for this reason. She only puts it away when Loki confirms that she's not drunk.
  • Kansai Regional Accent: She speaks in Kansai-ben, probably to invoke a The Idiot from Osaka image.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: She often opens her eyes fully whenever she means business. They're red by the way.
  • Loser Deity: In a different way to Hestia. While Hestia has a bad reputation in public due to being poverty stricken and for a long time having no familia, she is held in quite high regard by the children of her familia. By contrast, Loki is very well off enjoying luxury and wealth and one of the highest ranking familias, but her own familia cannot stand her and at times revile her for her obnoxious and perverted behavior.
  • Mama Bear: She won't let anyone get away with hurting her familia. While she is not allowed to directly engage in combat with another God/Goddess, she's more than willing to use every trick in the book to expose them and ruin their reputation permanently.
    Loki: [grinning maliciously] That new species of monster went and hurt Aiz-tan and everyone. It went an' hurt my children. I'm goin' to drag out whoever made it bloom, and make 'em pay for it.
  • A Mother to Her Men: Loki is incredibly informal with her people often joking and bantering with them as well as playfully harassing her women, and despite the Familia's large size she addresses everyone by name.
  • Rich Idiot With No Day Job: She's very wealthy thanks to having one of the largest familias in the story. She enjoys flashing her wealth in front of the other gods, especially her broke as dirt rival Hestia.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: To Hestia, with the two of them fighting practically every time they cross paths.
  • Skinship Grope: Loves groping other girls, but it's a lot less innocent than most examples of this trope given she's a Dirty Old Woman.
  • Slap Stick Knows No Gender: Frequently violently punished by Aiz, when she gropes her.
  • Smarter Than You Look: While she acts like a goofball most of the time, she is still the goddess of trickery, mischief, and scheming, instantly pointing out all of the aches, pains, and injuries Aiz sustained from her expedition to the 50th floor despite not showing any signs of discomfort. She also correctly deduces that Bell has a special skill that allows him to level up dramatically through her suspicion alone.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Off-screen, but its mentioned that before gaining a Familia she was quite violent and would often challenge gods to death duels. Her actions around Hestia is used as proof, since it never grows beyond name calling and face mushing.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: She does, wearing short shorts most of the time unless it's a formal occasion.

    Bete Louga 

Bete Louga

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bete_louga.png
Voiced by: Nobuhiko Okamoto (JP), Ty Mahany (EN), Diego Muzlera (Latin America)

A beastman of the Loki Familia.

Bete looks down on low-level adventurers, and considers himself the only one worthy enough to be with Aiz.
  • Armed Legs: Bete's Weapon of Choice.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Proud of his strength and considers low level adventurers trash.
  • Butt-Monkey: His team doesn't have much respect for him.
  • Cast From Hit Points: Bete's spell Hatti grows more powerful the more injured Bete is and once it has been active long enough it starts injuring Bete himself, increasing it's power.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Gets quite jealous of Bell in episode 12 after finding out he saw Aiz naked briefly due to Hermes luring him to a spot to watch the women bath.
  • Extremity Extremist: While the Amazon Sisters are often shown punching their targets while fighting without their weapons, Bete fights almost exclusively with a variety of kicks. Justified by the fact that his weapons are a pair of magical boots that can take on the properties of whatever magic they encounter.
  • Facial Markings: A tattoo down the left side of his face.
  • Hopeless Suitor: In love with Aiz, but has the least chance of any of her would be suitors.
  • I'll Kill You!: He screams this towards Kurumi Tokisaki during their second meeting in the Date A Live crossover in Memoria Freese, or rather first as the encounter in the dungeon was with an impostor that also impersonated Kaguya Yamai.
  • Inspirational Insult: Often delivers this. It seem this is the way he speaks; in Sword Oratoria most of Loki's children do understand what he actually means.
  • Jerkass: Comes off as a major one to the point that he was making fun of Bell for his inability to fight against a minotaur. He was drunk though. In Sword Oratoria, he's more reasonable but still elitist.
  • Jerkass Has a Point:
    • He points out exactly why it would be a bad idea to help Bell fight the minotaur.
      Bete: Leave the kid alone, Tiona. He's being a man right now. If I was him, and I got saved again, I'd want to kill myself.
    • Shown again later in Sword Oratoria. When a tavern full of adventurers begin hurling abuse at Lefiya and Filvis, and Loki Famillia in general, for being late in reacting to an unusually large monster infestation and blaming them for the casualties, Bete responds by stating that people shouldn't be in the high-risk adventurer business if they can't accept the possibility of dying, cowing the entire tavern who couldn't look him in the eye after that response.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Shown in Sword Oratoria where he shows most of his jerkiness is just bluster, and he cares about his fellow Familia members. It's also shown that his major act of jerkassery was done while so drunk he didn't remember a thing the next day and become pretty depressed when he was informed of it. Also, despite his speech above, he's willing to save Bell when Lili starts begging him.
  • Little Bit Beastly: While being called a werewolf, he looks entirely human except for his ears and tail.
  • Mana Drain: The other aspect of Bete's spell Hatti converts any magic directed against Bete, both direct attacks and status debuffing curses into power to fuel the spell.
  • Mega Manning: He wears a pair of magical boots that equip the effect of whatever spell they come into contact with. He can even use magic swords to accomplish this without assistance.
  • The Nose Knows: How he realized that Dionysus knew about the dangerous plant monsters as the god's scent was all over the place where he fought four of them.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: He's from the Werewolf race and has the appropriate wolf-like features.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: He's the only character to use expletives—both the F-word and the S-word—on a regular basis, at least in the English translation of Sword Oratoria.
  • Super Speed: Bete's primary trait. He's considered to be the fastest member of the Loki Familia, surpassing even Aiz when it when it comes to pure speed. He's so fast that not even Loki, a Goddess, can properly track his movements when he's going all out.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Volume 8 of the Sword Oratoria reveals Bete's life to be this before joining Loki Familia. Raised in a werewolf clan on the plains his tribe was almost completely wiped out, including his beloved younger sister and young woman his age that he was growing close to, by a rogue monster. He then travelled to Orario and joined Vidar Familia in an effort to get strong enough to destroy it. While he eventually did, while he was travelling back to his home the Familia was almost wiped out by a Monster Party, losing most of it's top fighters, including another young woman who reminded Bete of his childhood friend. It's more or less spelled out that most of his Jerkass behaviour is an effort to keep people at distance so he's not hurt again.
  • Tsundere:
    • Referred to this by Loki in regards to his relationship with Aiz and his motives for fighting. Best exemplified by this little tidbit.
      Bete: [when prompted about the Minotaur incident] I was only cleaning up after my own mistake. I wasn't doing it to save those small fries.
      Loki: [nonchalant and making kissing noises, making Bete blush] Yes, thank you for that Tsundere response. It's seriously borin' how there's no twist endin'.
    • Also a slight case towards Bell himself. Privately, he is actually highly impressed with Bell's drive and ability after the Minotaur fight, to the point where he calls him a 'man' to the rest of his Familia (many of whom he calls trash despite being in the same familia) and loudly expects great things from him. Bell's successes also frequently drives him to work harder. However, when actually facing Bell, none of this slips through; with him acting as a slightly less elitist version of himself.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Is very rude when talking about Bell in the pub. Unbeknownst to him, Bell was eating at a nearby table, and Bete's mocking gets so bad that he ends up running out of the pub in tears. Bete gets strung up by his teammates for going too far with the insults.
  • "You!" Exclamation: During the Date A Live crossover in Memoria Freese, he delivers this to Kurumi Tokisaki upon their third meeting, or rather second as the first meeting alone was with an impostor that also impersonated Kaguya Yamai.

    Tione and Tiona Hiryute 

Tione and Tiona Hiryute

Tione
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tiona.png
Tiona
Voiced by:
Tione: Minami Takahashi (JP), Natalie Rial (EN), Angélica Silva (Latin America)
Tiona: Rie Murakawa (JP), Karlii Hoch (EN), Tamara Veppo (Latin America)

A Pair of Amazon sisters and good friends with Aiz. They, like Aiz, are first-class adventurers.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Played with, since Tione is a very fetching young lady, but Finn just isn't interested in her due to needing a Prum heir. Yet she refuses to give up and is constantly making passes at him, to the point that Finn gets chills when she's talking about doing something potentially raunchy with him when he's out of earshot.
  • Absurd Cutting Power: Tiona runs on this, with her Urga being specifically designed to cut through all but the toughest of materials with ease.
  • A-Cup Angst: Tiona doesn't like that in her group of friends she has the smallest chest, Tione in particular loves rubbing this in whenever they argue. She also shows jealousy of Hestia's rack.
  • Action Girl: Both are strong and capable warriors.
  • Always Identical Twins: At first glance appear to be fraternal, given their differences in voices and how Tione's bust is so much bigger. But the development of both of these traits is actually more affected by the environmental factors rather than the genes. On the other hand, the same hair/eye color as well as similar faces is the usual indicator of identicalness. Especially in anime genre.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Both sisters wear a bikini-like top that exposes the midriff.
  • The Berserker: Tione has an ability that raises her attack power the more damage she takes, and the effect increases if she's mad.
  • BFS: Urga is longer than Tiona is tall. It's also a Double Weapon, being a hilt with a massive blade attached to either end.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Tione the older sister once overheard a plan to attack Tiona because the Amazons were jealous of the latter's ability to smile and happiness in general, and put a stop to it then and there by beating them all up.
  • Blood Knight: Tione when she gets pissed off enough will forgo the use of weapons and just rip monsters apart with her bare hands, even if said monsters have an acid like blood.
  • Child Soldier: Being born in Tels'kyura, they were trained from birth to fight. To begin with, they are already Level 2 at five years old.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Tione hates it when other girls get close Fynn and will turn murderous.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Being born in Tels'kyura, they received their Falna from Kali on the day of birth, and were specifically conditioned to be Blood Knights, by subjecting them to duels from an early age, first with mooks, then with fellow Amazons. In a rather memorable case, both of them got their first Level Up by killing their roommates, at the age of five. Tione immediately has a Heroic BSoD when she saw the Kali Familia in Port Meren during the sixth Sword Orotoria novel.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Neither sister wears shoes. Seems to be cultural, as no other Amazon characters in the background do either.
  • Double Weapon: Tiona wields a double-bladed sword.
  • The Dreaded: Played for Laughs. Tiona is this for Goibniu's familia, who call her The Destroyer because she breaks her weapons far too often.
  • Dumb Muscle: Both are seen by Loki as this in Sword Oratoria.
  • Family Theme Naming: Their given names are only one letter/character apart.
  • Genki Girl: Tiona for sure, Tione only when Captain Fynn is involved.
  • Glomp: Tiona's favored way of greeting Aiz.
  • Kukris Are Kool: Tione wields a pair of kukri knives.
  • Love at First Punch: Tione first developed feelings for Finn after he beat her in a match.
  • Magically Inept Fighter: Tiona is the only adventurer so far to have no magic at all.
  • Marshmallow Hell: Tione has put Tiona through this to spite her or to get her to shut up.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: They are twins, but they have a Tomboy and Girly Girl dynamic.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Tiona's Red to Aiz's Blue. Tione gives the impression to be Blue to Tiona's Red but it's actually the opposite.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Tione's alias, Jörmungandr, is the name of a giant sea serpent, and the child of the God Loki and the Giantess Angrboða from Norse mythology.
  • The Resenter: Many Amazons in Telskyura hated that Tiona was so happy in spite of everyone's circumstances, including Tione. Thankfully, Tione's sisterly feelings took precedence and she protected Tiona from being attacked outside of the rituals.
  • Shipper on Deck: Both are very supportive of Lefiya getting closer to Aiz. Whether they're aware Lefiya has feelings or just encouraging them to be friends is left vague.
  • Ship Tease: Both Tiona and Tione are two of the few members of the Loki familia who are fond of Bell, though Tiona is the more flirty of the two, whereas Tione mainly has eyes for Fynn. Whether the former really has feelings for him is left in the air.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Tione has eyes for Captain Fynn.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: Tione, she's incredibly in love with captain Fynn, who is more annoyed or creeped out by her advances than anything else.
  • Stripperific: Amazons have no issue with wearing, and fighting in, skimpy clothing that looks more like swim wear than actual garments.
  • Super Strength: Tiona's fighting style involves a large double bladed weapon designed to cut through anything but is impossible for most people to even lift let alone use. Both sisters though have shown an incredible amount of strength that is mentioned to be exclusive to the Amazons.
  • Tall Poppy Syndrome: The other Amazons of Telskyura were jealous of Tiona's happiness and planned to attack her. Tiona for her part was never aware of this because Tione protected her.
  • Those Two Girls: They are almost always seen together, justified since they are twins.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tiona and Tione respectively.
  • Tsundere: Tione can very quickly lapse into anger if her Berserk Button is pushed.

    Lefiya Viridis 

Lefiya Viridis

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lefiya_viridis.png
Voiced by: Juri Kimura (JP), Kelley Peters (EN), Janet Brekle (Latin America)

An elf mage and second-class adventurer introduced in Sword Oratoria. She admires Aiz in much the same way Bell does.
  • The Apprentice: She is learning under Reveria in the field of magic.
  • Beyond the Impossible: Normally even a powerful mage can only know up to three spells, but Lefiya's third spell is a mimic type that allows her to use any spell used by an elf as long as she knows the chant to it as well as knows what it does.
  • Butt-Monkey: She's always on the receiving end of Loki's gropes when all the other girls dodge out of the way.
  • Can't Argue with Elves: Subverted. She's notably is much less elitist compared to most elves because her Hidden Elf Village was not actually cut off from the outside world at all and was commonly visited by explorers moving from place to place, not to mention she spent several years studying in Orario before joining Loki.
  • Character Exaggeration: In the Sword Oratoria anime, she is much more clingy and possessive than she was in the light novels.
  • Character Development: Mostly in Sword Oratoria light novels. As the story progress, she gradually grew out of her lack of self-confidence and nervous personality and became a more powerful companion.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: While she denies it a great deal, her extremely hostile reaction to Bell's close relationship with Aiz says otherwise.
  • Cradling Your Kill: After killing Filvis, Lefiya cradled the dying Elf in her arms, saying that she is the most beautiful person she’d ever met.
  • Crash-Into Hello: How she met Bell.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Kind of accident prone.
  • Cute Witch: A magic using elf.
  • Death Wail: Her reaction towards Filvis’ death in vol.11. Her cry was powerful enough that magic leaked out without any chanting.
  • Deuteragonist: Of Sword Oratoria, where she's a major viewpoint character. In the anime adaptation though, it's really Lefiya's own character arc that takes center stage.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: When Bell accidentally falls into the spring the girls are bathing in, most of them are relatively unfazed. Meanwhile, Lefiya is already busy chanting one of her Fantastic Nuke spells as Bell flees for his life and had to be stopped by the other women from killing him.
  • Distaff Counterpart: She is essentially a female version of Bell, being a relatively weak adventurer inspired to be greater by Aiz. She also has amazing potential and is working on trying to win the affection of Aiz.
  • Driven by Envy: Despite having more years of experience in the dungeons, Bell far exceeds her in fighting ability and it drives her nuts. At one point when they both ended up lost in the middle dungeon floors she tried to take charge to show off her superiority to him, but found herself matched by his general know-how. When she learns that he leveled up to Level 3, the same level as her, she becomes frustrated and dismayed.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: The most girly of Aiz's circle of friends, and the one most capable in cooking.
  • Futile Hand Reach: Again with Filvis in vol.11, but Filvis had deliberately changed her speed so she wouldn't reach her and their plan could work.
  • Glass Cannon: Able to release huge Area-Of-Effect spells but they take time and she is completely vulnerable while chanting, also she lacks experience so she can get startled fairly easily and has zero melee ability.
  • Heroic BSoD: Filvis's death in Book 11 of Sword Oratoria is, to date, the most serious example of this in this franchise—Lefiya received so much shock that she completely unresponsive, even to Aiz.
  • Imagine Spot: She often has fantasies of being with Aiz.
  • Jerkass to One: With any other person, she's more or less a Nice Girl. When it comes to Bell and how close he is to Aiz, she goes all Clingy Jealous Girl and goes to extremes in keeping Bell away.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She feels very guilty after reducing Bell into a sobbing mess after letting out her pent up aggression against him. After which she begins to treat him a little more decently.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: Acts very traditionally feminine, and has shown interest only in girls.
  • The Load: Bete holds nothing back and outright considers her one, especially when he compares her to Filvis, another Level 3 magic-using elf who performs much better in combat than Lefiya does, adding that Tione and Tiona being too nice and forgiving was probably detrimental to her development as an adventurer.
  • Necessary Drawback: Her mimic spell allows her to cast any other spell an elf can use, but after successfully using the mimic spell, she then needs to do the chant and gather the magic power for the mimicked spell. Since successfully using a copied spell requires more time and power to do, there are more things that could go wrong and more opportunities for her enemies to counter her.
  • Not So Different: With her attraction to Aiz and desire to become stronger, she has more in common with Bell than she's comfortable to admit. Told this to a dying Filvis, saying that they’re both weak Elves that needed someone, and told Filvis that she’s the most beautiful person she’d ever met.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: As a Level 3 she is overshadowed by the top fighters of Loki Familia, resulting in her fears that she would become The Load and her subsequent lack of self-confidence.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: As a back-line Mage this is her role in combat, especially in the much lower levels where armies of monsters are common, she can destroy hundreds if not thousands of monsters in one attack. Assuming she can complete the chanting required.
  • Playing with Fire: Her Fusillade Fallarica is a fire-based attack spell.
  • Pointy Ears: She has the long and pointed ears that are characteristic of elves.
  • Power Copying: There are some conditions but with her Summon Burst she can copy Elven Magics.
  • Red Baron: Thousand Elf, referring to Lefiya's ability to bypass the typical "three spell" restriction on most Adventurers through her Elf Ring spell, allowing her to utilize any elven spells in addition to her own.
  • The Resenter: She can't stand how Bell is so close to Aiz and how quickly he can level up compared to everyone else.
  • Ship Tease: With Filvis, while Lefiya's attraction toward Aiz is more or less one-sided, her relationship with Filvis is much more genuine and mutual.
  • Sitcom Archnemesis: Treats Bell as this from the moment she sees him with Aiz.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: In the original Sword Oratoria light novels and the manga adaptation, she doesn't take too much focus away from Aiz, but in the anime adaptation, her own personal struggles and wanting to win Aiz's affection takes far more focus.
  • Squishy Wizard: Unlike Riveria, who is experienced enough to cast spells while on the move and use her staff as a weapon, Lefiya has little to no close combat experience, making her a liability if no one is available to provide cover for her.
  • Staking the Loved One: At the end of SO volume 12, Lefiya killed Filvis with her own sword.
  • Superpower Lottery: Most people are only able to learn a maximum of three spells. However, due to Lefiya's unique final spell, Elf Ring, she has no limit on the number of spells she's able to learn, allowing her to even replicate elven magic in addition to her own. And more so in SO volume 12, after she discovered a new skill that allows her to use two magic at one time, something no mage can do in this world, not even Riveria!
  • Transparent Closet: Vehemently denies that she has any feeling for Aiz, while also having fairly erotic Imagine Spots about her.
  • Traumatic Superpower Awakening: In Sword Oratoria light novel 12. After witnessing Filvis's death in volume 11, she went into shock and didn't respond to anything until Loki managed to pull her back. Later, when she update her status, a new skill popped up.
  • Underboobs: One of the outfits she donned (called "Arcanic Cascade" in Memoria Freese) shown off the bottom side of her bust.
  • Unknown Rival: Considers Bell to be a rival for Aiz' attention. Bell is oblivious to this, but is aware that Lefiya alternates between being nice to him and mean to him.
  • Wake-Up Call: Bete told Lefiya straight to her face that he considers her The Load and added that their friends being too nice and forgiving about Lefiya's The Load status was detrimental to her development as an adventurer. Lefiya admitted he was right and started taking more active steps in becoming stronger rather than simply lamenting her weakness.

Riveria Ljos Alf

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/riveria_ljos_alf.png
Voiced by Risa Taneda (JP), Ayako Kawasumi (JP) (Sword Oratoria anime), Melissa Pritchett (EN), Jessica Toledo (Latin America)

An elf mage, first-class adventurer, and one of three leaders of the Loki Familia.
  • The Archmage: The strongest Mage in Orario, at Lv.6.
  • Barrier Maiden: Veil Breath (buffs defense of nearby members) and Via Shilheim (negates all incoming damage).
  • Berserk Button: DO NOT CALL HER OLD.
  • Charged Attack: An interesting case, she has a technique Chant Connect that allows her to use different magic based on the length of the chant. Each spells can derive into 3 different magic, and since she has 3 spells, thus allows her to use 9 magic total while most other mages can only use up to 3 magic. This earns her the name Nine Hells. Spells such as Wynn Fimbulvetr and Lea Laevateinn each are phase one and phase two charge of her attack spell. Spells such as Veil Breath and Via Shilheim each are phase two and phase three charge of her defense spell.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Green hair match with green eyes.
  • Elemental Powers: Such as
  • Elfeminate: More so in Sword Oratoria.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Unlike most mages, Riveria's experience allows her to cast spells while on the move and even beat foes back with her staff, averting the typical Squishy Wizard trope associated with mages in Orario.
  • The Mentor: She mentors Lefiya in magic.
  • Morality Pet: Because of Aiz's Troubling Unchildlike Behavior, she was assigned to be this for Aiz so that Aiz can actually understand restraint.
  • Parental Substitute: Of the three highest ranked members of the Loki Familia, she has the closest relationship with Aiz. Loki practically pushes all of Aiz personal problems onto Riveria due to how motherly she is. Loki even teases Riveria by calling her "mama".
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Like Lefiya she is capable of destroying mass numbers of monsters in an instant, in fact her first appearance in Sword Oratoria is destroying a massive monster army.
  • Pointy Ears: She has long and pointed ears as proof that she's an elf.
  • Red Baron: Nine Hells.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Downplayed as she is "just" 99 years old, making her young by Elf standards.
  • Rebellious Princess: Fits this trope to a T. She found royalty life restrictive and her interests in The Outside World put her at odds with her father. What finally sets her off is when her father tear up her treasured world map, prompting her to leave her home for good.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: As a high elf, Riveria is elven royalty. She's long since abandoned the life of a royal, however, to become an adventurer.
  • Shipper on Deck: In contrast to the majority of her familia, she's in fact very encouraging of Bell/Aiz since the former is able to make Aiz feel emotions other than a desire to become as powerful as possible.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Her entire name can be romanized a couple of ways.
  • Walking the Earth: What she really wanted to do when she left elf forest. Instead, she got caught up in Loki Familia simply because Loki really want an Elf in her Familia (much to Finn's chagrin). She fully intends to go back to this life once she retires and bring Aiz along with her.

    Fynn Deimne 

Fynn Deimne

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fynn_deimne.png
Voiced by: Mutsumi Tamura (JP), Shannon Emerick (EN), Gabriel España (Latin America)

A Prum warrior, first-class adventurer, and one of three leaders of the Loki Familia. Captain of the Familia.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!:
    • The final effect of his magic, Hell Finegas, which raises fighting capability at the cost of the ability to make proper judgments. Being the field leader, he is naturally hesitant to use this, as one mistake could lead many of his fellow Familia members to their deaths.
    • Subverted in the closing of the Astraea Record story of Memoria Freese. He's simultaneously so pissed and focused on killing Valletta that he manages to hold onto his sanity even after Hell Finegas reached its peak, essentially giving him a full level up's worth of stats. He proceeds to tear a bloody swathe through multiple smaller familia under Evilus and only barely misses Valleta as she flees for dear life.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: A quick and powerful warrior able to see the perfect route to victory in almost any situation.
  • Badass Adorable: He's short, cute-looking, and generally a kind and reasonable person. He will kick your ass nine ways to Sunday if you happen to cross him.
  • Blade on a Stick: Fights with a spear. Actually necessary for one of his skills, which only activates while he has a spear in hand.
  • Brutal Honesty: Usually outwardly polite and amiable, but he has his moments.
    Finn: [after a group of adventurers manage to piss off the Amazon sisters] As you can see, these girls don't have the ability to seduce anyone.
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: One of the first members of his familia to get drunk during their party at the bar, not even making it past one cup despite his seniority.
  • The Captain: He is the Captain of the Loki Familia.
  • Chick Magnet: During a murder investigation it was decided that the women of the town must be body checked. All of the women immediately flocked to Fynn for the check, all of them swooning over him and spouting their adoration for the diminutive Adventurer. Keep in mind that he's 42.
  • Good Is Not Soft: He's affable, a Reasonable Authority Figure, and generally the most reliable and responsible member of the Loki Familia. This will not stop him from crushing anyone who dares to threaten the Loki Familia and Orario with brutal and overwhelming force, or even using civilians as bait to draw out the enemy and lure them into a trap. When he steps onto the battlefield personally, he's a One-Man Army who can decimate entire familia on his own.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: Resorts to these after being disarmed. It's a lot more effective than you'd expect, being able to punch someone clear across a field when he's really trying.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Is blond, friendly, and a Reasonable Authority Figure. Just don't get on his bad side.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: While not his favorite weapon, he's still fully capable of wielding a sword with great dexterity, slicing off the legs of entire groups of acid-spewing monsters with ease while borrowing Aiz's Desperate. He's also the leader of the Loki Familia's field forces.
  • Heroic Resolve: Two of his skills reflect this aspect of him. The first his Pallum Pride, in which his choice to face unfathomable danger for his race grants him bonuses to his magic and skills in the face of adversity. The second is Noble Brave, in which his sheer bravery and Nerves of Steel grant him a great amount of resistances against attacks on his mind.
  • Hobbits: His race, the pallums/prums, are this more or less, only being even more child-like in appearance.
  • Hope Bringer: Invoked. Having seen the despair that had overtaken the Prum race, Finn decided to become a guiding light to the rest of his people and inspire them to greatness, so that they may once more stand up for themselves. Upon making this decision at the age of ten, he changed his name, underwent four years of martial training, and then joined the Loki Familia, eventually leading it to greatness and global fame.
  • Kissing Under the Influence: He wonders if Tione is going to do this to him while he's drunk.
    Fynn: What are you planning to do to me after I'm drunk?
  • Large and in Charge: Subverted. He is easily the smallest member of the familia next to some girls, and is easily the most respected member of the group in regards to taking and giving orders.
  • Like Goes with Like: For a person who works to restore the prums' pride, naturally he prefers dating another Prum instead of Tione, an amazon who is utterly smitten with him, since he needs a prum heir to continue his legacy after he's gone. He eventually decides to propose to Lili, who rejects him in favor of Bell. Then he tries a bit of Reverse Psychology by challenging Bell to a duel in hopes of getting him closer to Lili, but is forced to flee from Tione's advances before he could do so.
  • Magic Knight: Despite his preference for using a spear, he has a respectable B-Rank in his Magic stat. In addition, one of his two magics, Tir na Nog, adds all of his stats, levels, and ability totals to his magical power for a one-shot thrown attack, but it can only be used once every twenty-four hours.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: A subdued example, as his "Commanding Howl" skill allows him to project his voice across long-distances, suitable for his role as the main tactician and field commander.
  • Meaningful Name: Finn's first name means "Fair-Haired" while his surname means "Sureness" or "Confidence", reflecting his blond hair and commanding presence as the Loki Familia's field commander.
  • Meaningful Rename: Rather than being his given name, Finn is actually the name he chose when he decided to become a beacon to the rest of his people. It means "light" in the language of the Prum.
  • Messy Hair: His hair is noticeably messy at the sides in such a way that it's almost feminine in the novels and the anime (see above). The manga tones it down considerably, giving him a much neater and combed style that is clearly boyish in nature.
  • Multi-Melee Master: While he prefers to use his spear (since one of his skills boosts his already formidable mastery) he doesn't mind taking up Aiz's sword when confronted with monsters that would melt any other weaponry if stabbed. He is also willing to go hand-to-hand if deprived of both of these, punching other Level 6 adventurers clean across entire caves, albeit breaking a finger in the process.
  • Nerves of Steel: Never really seen panicking (except when Tione is making moves on him) and always finds the best course of action no matter how bleak the situation is. He can also make hard decisions such as leaving Aiz to fight the boss alone while the rest of the Familia fled.
  • No Guy Wants an Amazon: Tione is absolutely head over heels for him, but he is far from interested in dating her. In fact, he gets chills when Tione mentions that she wants to sleep in the same tent with him despite not being within earshot of the conversation.
  • Older Than They Look: Looks no older than a human child who just entered puberty, yet is described as having over forty years of experience. In fact, his appearance has stayed the same for over ten years as seen in one of Aiz's flashbacks. Justified by the childish appearance of the Prum race (equivalent to a less hairy version of a Hobbit), and then doubled down on in Volume 8 of the Light Novels where he explains that Adventurers age slower due to their divine blessings, but it only becomes noticeable in the higher levels that most adventurers don't reach. Being a Prum just turns the effect Up to Eleven.
  • One-Man Army: As a first-class adventurer and the Captain of the Loki Familia, he's able to slash his way through hordes of monsters on his lonesome. In fact, with Hell Finegas active, he's the most dangerous combatant in Orario after Ottar, as the magic essentially grants him a full level up's worth of stats at the cost of his sanity... unless he's truly and utterly pissed, upon which his sheer rage lets him cling to his reasoning, allowing him to slaughter entire familia with ease.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Most of his clothing is purple and he kicks copious amounts of ass.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Gently scolds Aiz for breaking formation in order to save some of the other members of the Familia but is willing to rewrite entire battle plans to accommodate her request after hearing the input of his fellow Familia commanders. While he makes hard decisions sometimes, such as leaving Aiz behind to face the mutated acid-spewing monster alone, he does so with the knowledge that her indestructible sword and wind magic make her best suited for facing it and he has utmost confidence that she'll succeed. Sure enough, she does. In the Date A Live crossover campaign of the mobile game Memoria Freese, as opposed to the Anti-Spirit Team, he specifically ordered that both Shido and the Spirit friends that came with him are to be escorted out of the dungeon unharmed upon seeing they can be reasoned with.
  • Red Baron: Is renowned as "Braver" for his Nerves of Steel despite his diminutive and flighty race.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: When his magic Hell Finnegas is activated. Boy, you do not want to cross him then.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Seems to be named after Fionn mac Cumhaill aka Deimne from Celtic Mythology.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Fynn or Finn, take your pick.
  • The Strategist: Part of his claim to fame is his brilliant tactical acumen to go with his Nerves of Steel. During Orario's darkest days, he's placed in charge of leading all of Orario's adventurers against Evilus despite being largely outnumbered and being forced to defend Orario's non-combatants from Evilus' rampage. Although victory came at the cost of several of the Loki Familia's veterans, he successfully out-gambits Evilus' own tactician, Valletta and secures victory for Orario.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Compared to his fellow Level 6s, his stats are somewhat below par due to his nature as a prum, known to be the weakest of the races next to humans, compensating with extreme skill and decades of combat experience instead. For reference, his stat spread includes a Dexterity stat of S-Rank: 999 while his Strength is a relatively paltry E. Nevertheless, this doesn't mean he's weak, he's still a Level 6 and can punch people clear across a room and slice through the roots of a giant plant monster with ease. He's only relatively weak.
  • Weapon Twirling: Can spin his spear in his hand so quickly it acts like a buzzsaw!
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: In an omake where Loki makes her entire familia wear sailor uniforms after an argument with Riveria, Finn pulls off the look incredibly well. It elicited a warm response:
    Loki: [In the Reaction Guys pose] It's a legal trap!
    Tione: [also cheering] It's a real cute schoolgirl cosplay!
    Narration: That day, Tione stepped into the realm of the gods.
  • Wrecked Weapon: His Fortia Spear gets melted by the unknown monsters on the 50th Floor, but he later gets it replaced by one with the Durandal attribute like Aiz's made by Tsubaki Collbrande, the highest level member of the Hephaestus Familia.

A dwarf warrior, first-class adventurer. And one of three leaders of Loki Familia.
  • An Axe to Grind: Fights with an axe.
  • Elves vs. Dwarves: Had a mild case of this with Riveria back when she, Gareth and Finn were the only members of Loki Familia.
  • Epic Flail: Turned a ten metre long red dragon into one by grabbing its tail and spinning it around to smash into other attacking monsters.
  • Large and in Charge: He's fairly stout but Aiz, Bete, and Tiona kneel to him when ordered to.
  • Our Dwarves Are All the Same: Fits the stereotype to a T.
  • Out of Focus: Out of the three original members of Loki Familia, he has the least focus and development of them all.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Yen Press occasionally spells his name Galass.
  • Super Strength: Dwarves as a race are noted for their physical strength and as a Level 6 adventurer Gareth takes that even further. Its suggested that in terms of raw physical power he may surpass even Ottar. The best demonstration of the power is in the opening of the eighth novel, when a hit at the ground 10 meters from the enemy lines is enough to blow formations of Rakian soldiers away.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Again with Riveria. They've mellowed a lot since their rocky start but it still comes out under particularly stressful moments.

A Level 4 Human adventurer of the Loki Familia.
  • The Generic Guy: Zigzagged. While he is described as extremely average looking and often acts as the random Loki child, he's still a Level 4. His role in the familia is also hardly generic (if off-screen), as he works as the coordinator of Loki's rather numerous lower-ranking children.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Due to Overshadowed by Awesome, he has a poor opinion of his abilities that most people thinks he underestimates it.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: He's treated as generic because he's in the Loki Familia. As a Level 4, he would be a big shot elsewhere.
  • Red Baron: High Novice; referring to the fact that he's definitively not a novice but tends to see himself as such.

Soma Familia

    In General 
  • Descent into Addiction: All of Soma's familia are dangerously addicted to his wine. All of them are either dangerously obsessive or violent in acquiring money, which they then use to get a taste of wine.
  • Drugs Are Bad: Soma's wine has thoroughly corrupted the entire familia, where they will do everything they can for money so they can taste a bit more of the intoxicating wine.
  • Fantastic Drug: The complete version of Soma's wine is so intoxicating that a single taste will have anyone who isn't a god devote the remainder of their lives searching for more. It is to such an extent that the members of Soma Familia are loyal not to him, but his wine.
  • Hate Sink: Several members of the Soma familia are complete assholes who abuse Lili and treat her like a slave. Then after taking everything from her they leave her to die in the dungeon.
  • Karmic Death: In the Light Novels, Kanu and the rest of his party stole a large box from Ottar, believing it to have precious loot. What was actually inside was the Minotaur Ottar was training up and it promptly kills them all.
  • Slavery Is a Special Kind of Evil: Their treatment of Lili. They force her to work to her limit for the tiniest scraps of food, while taking all of her earnings for themselves. And she can't even get away, as any attempts she makes to escape and start a new life have them tracking her down and ruining the lives of whatever kind people let her in. It's why Lili initially came to despise adventurers, including Bell, before she comes to realize he's not like other adventurers.

  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He's a huge Jerkass and wears glasses.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Zanis' alias, Gandharva, is the name of a race of male nature spirits known for guarding the Vedic ritual drink Soma.

Hephaestus Familia

    In General 

The Hephaestus Familia is a familia or artisan blacksmiths who seek to create the ultimate weapons and armor. Getting your hands on any piece of the Hephaestus Familia's equipment is considered a luxury due to their quality and power.


  • The Blacksmith: A whole familia of them and one of the most well-known for it.
  • Non-Action Guy: Zigzagged. The majority of them aren't especially powerful adventurers, but the better smiths are at least Level 2 in order to rank up their blacksmith skill. Then there's Tsubaki Collbrande, a Level 5 Adventurer who runs into the dungeon to test out her latest works and find new materials to work with.
  • Up Marketing: Downplayed. They're world-renowned as a luxury brand and its top products often go for millions of valis. But their goddess is mindful of her newer blacksmiths and less affluent customers, setting aside a portion of their shop space specifically for lower-level Blacksmiths and Adventurers so they can form partnerships and the like. The low-leveled Blacksmiths aren't actually allowed to use their goddess' brand name until they can make good products worthy of the label though.

The Goddess of the Hephaestus Familia.

Hephaestus runs a familia of blacksmiths who create armor and weapons for adventurers. She is also a dear friend of Hestia, and personally creates a dagger for her friend's first familia member in order to help with Bell's growth.
  • Abled in the Adaptation: The original Hephaestus' legs were both crippled. This Hephaestus' disability is downgraded from being a double cripple to simply being blind in one eye.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: In the original myths, Hephaestus was considered incredibly ugly, so much so that either Zeus or Hera (based on which version of the myth) threw him off of Mount Olympus due to his looks. In this series, Hephaestus is a Hot Goddess with a voluptuous figure to complete the upgrade as part of her Historical Gender Flip.
  • Boyish Short Hair: She's a blacksmith woman who often wears masculine-style clothing and has short hair that makes her look somewhat androgynous.
  • Curtains Match the Windows: Her crimson eyes match her bright red hair nicely.
  • Dub Name Change: Downplayed a bit in the Latin American Spanish dub: Her name was changed to the Spanish rendition of the original Greek god (Hefestosnote ), but they didn't try to change it to the correct gender (it would be either "Hefestia", "Hefesta" or "Hefestria"). Considering they didn't did the same in the original Japanese version, this is understandable.
  • Eyepatch of Power: She wears one over her right eye.
  • Historical Gender Flip: Hephaestus was a man in the original Greek myths.
  • Hot Goddess: One of the biggest sources of eye candy at Ganesha's ball until Freya arrived.
  • Informed Deformity: Hephaestus is said to have been mocked by other gods for being ugly... Even though she's a Hot Goddess just as attractive as any other goddess in the setting. Apparently, she isn't as pretty without her eyepatch on, though. Shortly after this was revealed Welf removed her eyepatch and laughed... because she wasn't actually that ugly! She was simply ugly in comparison to the gods, who are an Inhumanly Beautiful Race.
  • Odd Friendship: With Hestia. They're polar opposites in that Hephaestus runs an extremely large and wealthy Familia while Hestia's is small and poor. Hephaestus is serious and diligent while Hestia is cheerful and lazy. Hephaestus is often the one lending Hestia items, money, and even Hestia's church so that the poorer goddess can get by. Yet despite all of this Hephaestus still considers Hestia a friend.
  • Short Hair with Tail: She has very short hair with a upper back length tail growing out of her nape.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Tomboy to Hestia's Girl Girl. Hephaestus is a goddess of blacksmiths, Hestia is a goddess of hearths. Hephaestus often wears pants and has Boyish Short Hair, Hestia always wears dresses and has Girlish Pigtails.
  • Ultimate Blacksmith: She's a goddess of smithing, though her divine skillset is limited while she's on Earth.

A Level 5 Adventurer and the Head of Hephaestus Familia.


  • Ambiguously Brown: Her human half is stated to be from the same area that other characters like Mikoto are from but is described as darker skinned than them as well as darker skinned than any of the shown dwarves.
  • D-Cup Distress: Finds her large bust more of an inconvenience than anything else. This annoys Loki greatly.
  • Deus Exit Machina: During the Winter Reverie event in Memoria Freese, she's by far the strongest ally Bell has during his expedition to Veltane to rescue Talvi. However, she goes off on her own to investigate the source of Veltane's polluted spring, only to get pulled under by an unseen force and thus out of the fight when she could have steamrolled all of what Veltane had to offer. Lampshaded, as Hestia admits to forgetting they brought her along along with Ridari nothing that he would have been curb-stomped by her despite being an extremely powerful Level 4 Adventurer himself.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Cyclops due to wearing an eyepatch. She doesn't like it because it makes her sound like a monster that might be found in the dungeon.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Wears one over her left eye (as opposed to Hephaestus wearing one over her right eye).
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Half-human, half-dwarf.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Yields a tachi.
  • Miko: Evokes the look with a white top (or white Sarashi) and red hakama.
  • Minored In Ass Kicking:
    • She's a smith by trade, but frequently goes into the dungeon to test her new weapons out on the local monsters. Her efforts to acquire the best materials and keep trying newer and more powerful weapons have made her the best mortal blacksmith in Orario and a first-class adventurer.
    • When she's "test-cutting", she always puts the exact same amount of strength into every swing to properly assess her weaponry. She treats this like it were a normal thing, but Bell is awed at the amount of discipline and technique needed to do this as easily as she breathes.
  • Sarashi: Wears this around her top when working in the forge.
  • Ultimate Blacksmith: The best (mortal) smith in the largest guild dedicated to smithing. She is the best Orario has to offer and her ultimate goal is to surpass the skills of the gods themselves.

Freya Familia

    In General 
  • Badass Army: How this familia is set up. They are the strongest group in Orario bar none. It is outright said that only the Loki Familia has any possible chance against them. With how Freya's familia completely destroyed the Ishtar Familia in a single night, just how much of a chance does the Loki Familia have?
  • Undying Loyalty: With the exception of Ottar, none of the other members are happy with how obsessed Freya is with Bell, and believe that he's taken a monopoly of her affections. Nevertheless, they refuse to disobey her and will follow her orders to the letter.

    Freya 

Freya

Voiced by: Yoko Hikasa (JP), Patricia Duran (EN), Nati Valdebenito (Latin America)

The Goddess of the Freya Familia.

Known as the Goddess of Beauty, Freya loves to tease her fellow gods, and searches out adventurers with the greatest potential to join her...even if they are already a part of another god's familia. Freya eventually catches a glimpse of Bell, and sets her eyes on him to watch over his growth in order to one day make Bell a part of her familia.
  • Absolute Cleavage: Taken to its logical extreme. Freya's outfit is backless and the front barely covers the sides of her upper body, exposing her stomach and most of her breasts.
  • Affably Evil: While not exactly evil, she was the main antagonistic driving force of Season 1. Nonetheless, she remains very civil and polite.
  • Allergic to Routine: While all the gods descended to the lower world to escape the boredom of the heavenly bureaucracy, Freya gets bored especially easily and is always looking for something to entertain herself. Fights to the death, being pitted against other gods, and watching Bell are some of her favorite pastimes.
  • Ambiguously Evil: It's left vague if she's actually evil or just an extremist Thrill Seeker, but she has intentionally endangered the lives of others (especially Bell) in order to push his rapid growth that she is deeply obsessed with. This includes letting monsters run rampant in town and making the Silverback target her fellow goddess Hestia.
  • Armor-Piercing Slap: She defeats Ishtar by slapping her in the face, causing Ishtar to fall off the building they're in.
  • Bad Guys Do the Dirty Work: She is the one who sends Ishtar back to heaven.
  • Beneath the Mask: She has a very different persona in private, dropping her polite visage in favor of being dangerously obsessive over Bell to stalker levels.
  • Challenge Seeker: One of her favorite methods of overcoming boredom is to be in a situation that's actually challenging to her and her familia. While being treated to the finest luxuries is positively mundane to her, the idea of potentially losing is absolutely riveting.
  • Charm Person: Capable of making men, women and even monsters fall for her.
  • The Chooser of The One: With the one she chooses being Bell Cranel, where she becomes obsessed with making him more powerful.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: When she watched Bell and Aiz dance together in a banquet hosted by the Apollo familia, she seriously considered unleashing a herd of minotaurs until Ottar informed her how bad of an idea that was. And then there's what she does to Ishtar.
  • Combat Stilettos: Subverted in Book 7. Though she does not actually fight in them. She navigates the warzone between her and Ishtar's familia with ease in her high heels. Their clicking is especially noted as she pursues and eventually defeats Ishtar.
  • The Dreaded: Despite how uninvolved she usually is in the disputes between Gods, all the other Gods consider her this. Her familia is at the top of the food chain and could easily crush any other with the possible exception of the Loki Familia if she actually felt motivated to do so. The destruction of the Ishtar Familia was a major reminder of that for all the others.
  • Even Evil Has Standards:
    • She released the monsters during the festival, but enchanted them so they would not harm anyone (their only purpose being a distraction while the Silverback went after Bell): she was aghast to learn people had been hurt by one monster.
    • She strongly considered crushing the Apollo familia for their crimes against Hestia and Bell, especially once they openly rampaged through town, caring not a whit about the collateral damage, but then decided the "war games" was a Necessarily Evil roadblock Bell has to face in his growth. To her credit, she's ultimately proven right.
  • Establishing Character Moment: She makes a grand appearance at the Gods' Banquet, has a brief conversation with Hestia about Bell, then departs after loudly declaring she's had her fill of all the men present.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Her outfit includes one split pant leg for one of her legs and a detached pant leg for the other.
  • Friendly Enemy: She is not exactly going out of her way to kill those that get close to Bell, nor is that even her goal, but she doesn't mind if people get hurt, as long as she can see Bell act cool.
  • Glamour: The explanation given for why her Charm Person ability wasn't taken away like the other gods' Arcanum. The only real difference between her's and the Glamour that The Fair Folk used is that it's innate. Just as the gods' Immortality is not taken away, neither is the glamour of the Goddess of Beauty. The two are synonymous, and either way its not among her Arcanum, so it cannot be taken away.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: How her charm powers activate.
  • Gone Horribly Right: She releases the monsters during the festival as basically a diversion so no one interferes with Bell's fight, she even charms them so they won't actually hurt anyone, except Bell, so she is quite shocked to hear that a monster started attacking people. Turns out she wasn't the only one who released monsters.
  • Hot Goddess: The goddess of beauty would fit this trope, but it seems just her presence will make anyone near her become enraptured, even Aiz almost fell for it.
  • I Love You Because I Can't Control You: When she's informed that Bell is Immune to Mind Control, she's ecstatic.
  • In Love with Your Carnage: Lets' just say she was "enjoying" Bell's fight with the minotaur.
  • I Need You Stronger: She works behind the scenes to make Bell stronger, such as having Ottar train a Minotaur and then has it chase Bell down, all for the sake of getting turned on by his fast growth in power.
  • Karma Houdini: Freya managed to get Loki, the only person who managed to connect Freya to the monsters that rampaged in town, off her back by bribing her with an extremely rare item that Loki was looking for. By the time Loki realizes it, it's too late for her to do anything, and she begrudgingly warns Hestia to keep Bell as far away from Freya as possible.
  • Lethal Chef: Freya's cooking is horrendous. That is to say, she has no idea at all when it comes to it. Anything she makes is lethal enough to banish a god back to Heaven with one bite. The only reason anyone is willing to try anything she makes is because... she's Freya.
  • Living Aphrodisiac: If she touches you, she can cause orgasms so strong the recipient will pass out, and you will be completely under her spell.
  • Love at First Sight:
    • Towards Bell. Considering her persona however...Bell may not have been the first. Ironically she inspires this in everyone.
    • In the first book, Freya mentions her new infatuation while having lunch with Loki, who thinks something along the lines of 'Ah, crap. Here we go again'. Apparently, Freya has a history of love at first sight, and obsessively pursuing the object of affection, even if they belong to another Familia; it usually doesn't end well for said object. Given that she's already put Bell into several near-death situation just to watch him 'perform' for her, it's a good bet she normally pursues them to death. Note that her most devoted Familia member, Ottar, is the only living Level 7 adventurer. Maybe a similar pursuit by Freya is how he got that way...
    • In the third novel, Ottar reveals that Freya has indeed does this before. However, her obsession with Bell is clearly different from the other times, and Ottar notes that if Bell dies, she may well abandon everything else just to follow him to Heaven.
  • Mystical White Hair: Has snow-white hair and is possibly the most influential goddess in Orario.
  • Mythology Gag: Freya has an innate ability to see a person's potential, or 'eyes of true colors', and since it's innate, it's not considered part of her Arcanum and she can use it freely. It's a source of great frustration for Loki, as it makes Freya an infallible talent spotter; the only hope is to get a powerful warrior before Freya sees them, though even that won't stop her if she wants that warrior badly enough - it's stated that Freya's not above outright poaching. In Norse Mythology, Freya is Queen of the Valkyries - those that choose the souls of the worthy dead from the battlefields, literally talent-spotting the warriors worthy of Valhalla.
  • Not Me This Time: She released several monsters during the festival so one of them could attack Bell to unleash his hidden potential, while the rest were a distraction. However she made sure the monsters wouldn't harm anyone. She's shocked to learn there was a plant monster that injured Lefiya, which was not among the ones she released.
  • The Pornomancer: Sex is literally her power.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches down to her hips.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: While she's more of a creepy stalker than outright evil, her outfit is primarily black with red details.
  • Room Full of Crazy: A gag manga shows her having a room that has everything with Bell's face on it.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: According to the eighth novel, the Guild gave the Freya Familia a large fine for flattening the Pleasure Quarter and causing a lot of disruption. For a goddess who can afford the rent for a penthouse on The Tower, she'd afford it since (at least to her) it's for Bell's sake.
  • Sexy Backless Outfit: Her gown leaves her back bare.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: She could easily seduce any man if she wanted, but she's focusing all her attention on Bell and secretly helping him increase his skills.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Can be seen as such towards Bell, who she is deeply obsessed with. Her stalker tendencies are actually so intense that it gave Bell the ability to sense when someone was watching him.
  • Tranquil Fury: She never loses her calm and graceful demeanor as she and her Familia raid the Pleasure quarter. It is still made clear that she's pissed off that Ishtar would dare to steal Bell from under her nose.
  • The Vamp: An incredibly dangerous predator. If Bell is a rabbit, then Freya is a fox.
  • Vapor Wear: Her skimpy clothes make clear that she's wearing no bra or panties.
  • Villainesses Want Heroes: Whether she's actually a villain is debatable, but what is certain is that she wants Bell for herself, and she has nothing wholesome in mind.
  • Villainous Rescue: She rescues Bell by preemptively attacking Ishtar's Familia, in part to stop Ishtar's arrogance that she could somehow beat the former. But it was mostly due to Ishtar kidnapping Bell which prompted her to utterly crush Ishtar once and for all.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: She's a prominent villainous figure, a Yandere stalker and a white-haired goddess.
  • World's Most Beautiful Woman: As the Goddess of Beauty, this is a given.
  • Yandere: She sees anyone who comes between her and Bell, mortal or divine, as a threat she needs to crush immediately.

    Ottar 

Ottar

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ottar_zenshin.png
Voiced by: Ryoukan Koyanagi (JP), John Gremillion (EN)

A Boaz (Half-Pig beastman) of the Freya Familia.

As a loyal adventurer to Freya, Ottar subjugates a minotaur (a different one from the minotaur Aiz kills in the introduction), and sends it after Bell for training.
  • Berserk Button: Don't ever claim to be more beautiful than Freya in front of Ottar. Especially if your a delusional Gonk.
  • BFS: His preferred weapons tend to be giant two-handed swords almost as long as he is tall.
  • Bring It: To Aiz.
    Ottar: [to Aiz] Come, Sword Princess.
  • Establishing Character Moment: He shows up in the dungeon searching for the right Minotaur to duel with Bell and catches the swing from one of the Minotaur with one bare hand, then promptly squeeze its weapon to pieces without breaking a sweat. This even send dread down on the Minotaur. It establishes Ottar as an otherworldly strong character.
  • Cool Sword:
    • A hefty but weathered blade almost as large as himself. It's powerful enough to chip the edge of Aiz's otherwise unbreakable sword. He leaves it behind after being confronted by Fynn and Riveria.
    • He later replaces it with the Supreme Black Sword, an order-made weapon costing a whopping 410,000,000 valis. It was crafted from the sword of the Udaeus, the Monster Rex of the 37th floor.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Very overtly averted. Freya asks him whether he's jealous of Bell because of her obsession, and he answers no in such a way that Freya actually liked him a bit more than before.
  • Dare to Be Badass: Leaves Fynn and the Loki Familia with one which reflects Bell's decision to face the Minotaur alone and "go on an adventure."
    Ottar: Break out of your shell. Reject the help of others and face your own adventure. The only direction you need to look is forward.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Acts as one towards a minotaur he selects to train against Bell. He ends up breaking one of its horns during the training session.
  • The Dreaded: He's so powerful that the prospect of fighting him head-on is tantamount to a death sentence. Even Aiz is reluctant to fight him.
  • Everyone Has Standards: In Memoria Freese, Zald notes that he admires Ottar's barbarousness and willingness to kill anyone at the drop of a hat for his goddess. But even Ottar is stunned when Zald and Alfia, proud members of the Zeus and Hera Familia who once made Orario a paradise, are trying to bring about its destruction.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Once a nameless and abandoned child left to die in the cold, Ottar grew to become Freya's champion and the most feared adventurer in Orario.
  • Happily Adopted: When he was a child, he was abandoned to freeze and starve to death by his parents. Freya found him, took him into her arms, and nursed him back to health. She gave him everything: a home, food, emotional warmth, and even his name. This is the reason for his Undying Loyalty to her.
  • Lightning Bruiser: All of his physical stats are S Rank and at the cap or near it. As a fighter, he has virtually no weaknesses, and can easily repel even Ais in a contest of swordsmanship.
  • Little Bit Beastly: As a Boaz, he has a pig's ears, but is otherwise humanoid.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: He bars Aiz's attempts to intervene when the Minotaur he trained attacks Bell. He's then confronted by Bete, Tione, and Tiona who hold him off while Aiz rushes to save the younger adventurer. While he was willing to fight all of them, he backs down once Fynn and Riveria show up to intervene, knowing that even he can't take on all of them at once.
  • Master Swordsman: Fights with a sword and repels all of Aiz's attacks with only limited effort despite her status as a legendary swordswoman and genius.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: He's ripped to kingdom come and can wield his BFS with just one hand.
  • No-Sell: Easily repelled everything Aiz could throw at him. When facing down Phryne, a Level 5 Adventurer, he effortlessly stops her attacks, which have slain thousands of other high-level adventurers.
  • Red Baron: "King" for being the strongest Adventurer in Orario. He's also referred to as Warlord by other adventurers.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Ottar is named after Ottar the Simple who was a protégé of Freya in Norse mythology.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: His normal attire completely lacks sleeves to show off his bulging arms. He only covers up for formal events where he's expected to look proper.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: To avoid certain doom, Phyrne tries to seduce Ottar but she made the fatal mistake by saying she is more beautiful than Freya. Ottar is not happy about that and delivers a devastating punch that will make that evil woman more ugly than before.
  • Super Mode: His Vana Arganture skill allows him to beastify to raise his already monstrous stats even further at the cost of a large chunk of stamina and Mind.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Freya. So much so that merely encountering an adventurer from a different Familia in the dungeon is enough to make him want to kill them. Woe betide you if you happen to call yourself more beautiful than Freya, as Phyrne found out the hard way.
    Ottar: I encountered an adventurer from another Familia in the dungeon, isn't that reason enough for us to kill each other?
  • What You Are in the Dark: He uses a healing potion on Mikoto when the rest of his Familia is not watching, and Mikoto herself is unconscious.
  • World's Best Warrior: He is the only Level 7 at Orario, making him the single strongest adventurer.
  • The Worf Effect: His reputation as a ludicrously strong warrior is used to show just how powerful Zald is when he easily beats Ottar back in Memoria Freese.

     Allen Fromel 
Voiced by: Taku Yashiro (JP), Kyle Jones (EN)

The vice captain of the Freya Familia.
  • Blade on a Stick: He wields a spear.
  • Little Bit Beastly: As a cat person, he looks almost completely human except for his cat ears and tail.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Allen's alias, Vana Freya, is a reference to Freya's chariot from Norse mythology that is pulled by two cats.
  • Super Speed: Allen is nicknamed the "fastest in the city" and is able to move at speeds that only a first class adventurer can keep track of. Using his speed, he is able to use a hit and run tactic to fight his enemies.

    Helun 

Helun

A female member of Freya Familia.


  • Peek-a-Bangs: Her hair covers the right side of her face.
  • Synchronization: When transformed, she can share Freya's senses and is able to one sidedly receive Freya's feelings and hear her thoughts.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: She can use a transformation magic named Vana Seith that allows Helun to become Freya.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/miach_danmachi.png
Voiced by: Makoto Furukawa (JP), Mike Yager (EN), Lucas González Freytes (Latin America)

The God of the Miach Familia.

Miach is a close friend of Bell and Hestia, and provides a potion shop for adventurers.
  • Benevolent Boss: Turned down an invitation to one of Ganesha's events in order to deal with his financial problems.
    Miach: I got an invitation. But my Familia is struggling for money at the moment. I can't leave them at this stressful time.
  • Clueless Chick Magnet: Has no idea of how popular he is.
  • Hot God: He's a god that's quite popular with the ladies.
  • Mythology Gag: In Irish mythology, Miach was (temporarily) killed, and 365 medicinal herbs sprang from his grave; the herbs corresponded to whichever body part they were intended to treat and heal. Mythologically speaking, Miach's body is one of the foundations of pharmacology and alchemy... or, y'know, potions for healing and use in battle.
  • Nice Guy: The nicest God introduced and one of the nicest characters, if not the nicest. In fact, he's so nice that he frequently hands out free potions to people he meets despite his debts, putting his familia in the red. This forces Naza to swindle naive newbie adventurers like Bell with watered down potions in order to save money.
  • Oblivious to Love: To Naza's displeasure, though she also finds it somewhat good because he's too popular with women.
  • Perpetual Poverty: Among the poorest of the descended gods, it was not always the case though. That said, Nahza's winning the War Game bet seems to have improved the familia's fortunes quite a bit.

Voiced by: Ikumi Hayama (JP), Natalie Jones (EN)

The captain of Miach Familia. She sells potions.
  • Artificial Limbs: Her right arm was replaced with an artificial one after she lost her real one.
  • Career-Ending Injury: She used to be an Adventurer before she lost her right arm. While she's still more than capable of fighting monsters, the trauma from her experience has prevented her from ever setting foot in the Dungeon again.
  • Demoted to Extra: In Season 1, she appears in at least one scene but has no speaking lines. This is despite her being a regular supporting character in the novels and even having a short story that goes over her backstory. This is so bad that in Season 2 when she plays a role in helping Bell, a lot of viewers were left wondering who she was.
  • Easily Forgiven: After she tries to swindle Bell out of a love of valis by selling him diluted potions, Bell readily forgives her because her previous potions had saved his life on multiple occasions.
  • It's All My Fault: She blames herself for the decline of her Familia.
  • Little Bit Beastly: As a member from the Chienthrope race, she's a woman with dog ears and tail.
  • Long-Range Fighter: She fights with bow and arrows. This is rather useful when her intervention prevents Bell from being killed by Hyacinthus.
  • Mythology Gag: In the myth of Miach, one of his greatest achievements as a healer was replacing the hero Nuada's artificial arm with one of flesh and blood. Managing such an outstanding artificial arm without his Arcanum might very well be an equivalent achievement in universe.
  • Rags to Riches: She's one of the few people in all of Orario to bet on Bell and Hestia Familia during the War Games in sixth novel / second season on the anime. It's heavily implied that her winnings are a huge, life-changing amount of money.
  • Retired Badass: She was a level 2 Adventurer before she was traumatized by the loss of her arm. Now, she only makes money by selling potions and gives occasional long-range support in battle outside the Dungeon by firing arrows.
  • Snake Oil Salesman: She resorts to this to make more money for her familia, diluting her potions and covering it up with spices so she can make more with less, albeit with reduced potency. Naza goes so far as to try to swindle Bell with this after sending him into the dungeon to retrieve a rare item. Lili, once a Con Man herself, calls her out on this, but Naza retorts that it's the only way to keep her familia afloat.

    Cassandra Illion 

Cassandra

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cassandra_tachi.png
Voiced by: Ayumi Watanabe (JP), Alicia Beard (EN)

A healer originally from the Apollo familia but joins the Miach familia after Apollo's banishment.
  • Bait the Dog: An accidental case. She was really looking forward to joining Hestia familia because Bell actually believed her when she mentioned her prophetic dream about losing her pillow somewhere on what was once the Apollo mansion, went to look for it, found it, and returned to her. Then she and Daphne learn how Hestia has a massive debt, and Daphne drags her off, stating that joining a familia with such terrible financial problems is not a good idea.
  • The Cassandra: Like her namesake, her dreams are often prophetic—but nobody believes in her, with the exception of Bell.
  • I Warned You: She knew that her familia would lose, and wasn't happy with how no one listened to her.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Her hair hides half her face.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Her name is derived from Cassandra, the princess of Troy and a prophetess who was cursed by Apollo to never have her prophecies believed.
  • Seers: She has symbolic visions of the future.
  • Stockholm Syndrome: She hates the way she was "recruited" to the Apollo Familia, and is treated like absolute dirt, but she's still unflinchingly loyal and devoted, throwing herself into the fray to protect her abuser. If this were reality, she'd be diagnosed with "battered spouse syndrome."
  • Upper-Class Twit: Subverted. All her prophesies are being seen as her being Cloudcuckoolander-ish out of coming from the nobility.

    Daphne Lauros 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/daphne_tachi.png
Voiced by: Wakana Kowaka (JP), Elissa Cuellar (EN)

A spellcaster originally from the Apollo familia but joins the Miach familia after Apollo's banishment.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Passed it upon being forced to join Apollo Familia, alongside Cassandra. She even tells Bell and Hestia "you have my condolences" when delivering the invite to the "Gods Feast" that she knew would lead to Apollo doing the same to Bell.
  • Don't Make Me Destroy You: Orders Bell to surrender and allow himself to be dragged off to Apollo Familia. She then attacks him with magic when he refuses.
  • It's Probably Nothing: Is continuously dismissive of Cassandra's warnings, despite being well are that she has prophetic dreams. (This may possibly be out a subconscious desire for Cassandra's warnings of disaster for the Apollo Familia to come true)
  • Just Following Orders: How she justifies taking part in the assault upon Hesita's church, stating she has no choice but to follow Apollo's orders.
  • Motive Rant: Yells at Bell how resisting Apollo's "recruitment" is a fool's errand.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: In Greek mythology, Daphne was a naiad (fresh water nymph) literally pursued by Apollo against her will; just as Apollo was about to capture her, she pleaded with her father, a river god, to save her at any cost. As a result, she was turned into a laurel tree.
  • Those Two Guys: Almost always shows up alongside Cassandra.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: She wears thigh-high socks and a mini dress.

Takemikazuchi Familia

Takemikazuchi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/takemikazuchi_danmachi.png
Voiced by: Junji Majima (JP), Adam Gibbs (EN), Franco Patiño (Latin America)

The god of the Takemikazuchi Familia.
  • A Father to His Men: Worries more about the safety of his familia than some of the other gods, and as such, often wants them to prioritize protecting each other more than getting loot.
  • Awesome by Analysis: His domain allows him to deconstruct any martial technique he's watched at least once. In Memoria Freese, this talent allows him to assist Bell by pinpointing the weakness in Ridari's sword drawing technique, commissioning Tsubaki to make Bell an armor specifically to counter it.
  • Badass Teacher: As a War God, he's far more combat capable than the average god. He also taught his numerous secret techniques to his children and sparring with them to help them grow stronger.
  • Clueless Chick Magnet: One savvy goddess even suggests that both he and Miach probably should't be allowed to talk to women.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Played for Laughs. Dogeza is the signature technique of Takemikazuchi. When his Familia perform it before Hestia, the narration refers to it as their "ultimate technique".
  • Hot God: Is considered to be pretty attractive, though he himself is unaware of it.
  • Oblivious to Love: Doesn't realize that Mikoto has feelings for him, and does a lot of actions with the opposite sex that would be considered flirting if it wasn't for the fact he probably doesn't realize what it looks like.
  • Orphanage of Love: He runs an orphanage in his shrine in Far East, and Mikoto's backstory shows it's not bad at all. It's also the reason why he and some of his children are living in Orario— Shrine donations can't catch up with orphanage expenses, so he has to bring some of his stronger children to Orario to earn money from Dungeon Crawling.
  • Perpetual Poverty: He is one of the poorest gods in Orario, mainly because he has to support an orphanage at home as well.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He doesn't try to cover up his familia accidentally luring monsters onto Bell's group, and takes full responsibility for it.

  • An Axe to Grind: His Weapon of Choice.
  • The Chains of Commanding: When his companions were chased by monsters, considering how heavily injured Chigusa was, he lured a Pass Parade towards Bell's party. He later apologized, but he was quite adamant about the necessity of the decision and how they needed to do this to survive regardless of the morality of it.
  • Large and in Charge: He's The Leader with a Heroic Build.
  • My Greatest Failure: Is not happy about having been forced to run away and then luring his attackers onto Bell's party. As a result, he intercepts an attack on Bell by the Goliath, saving him in the process, but suffers a devastating attack in the process.
  • Oblivious to Love: He doesn't have a clue on Chigusa's crush on him, much to Mikoto's chagrin.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: After their rocky start, he becomes this to Welf. The two of them waste no time sniping at each other, even in the middle of combat.

Voiced by: Soma Saito (JP), Benjamin Mc Laughlin (EN), Nelson González (Latin America)

The God of Hermes Familia.
  • Affectionate Gesture to the Head: Does this commonly to soothe Asfi.
  • Big Good: Sleaziness aside, he is the most concerned with the wellbeing of Bell and Orario. While not directly participating in the action himself, he lends a subtle guiding hand to help the heroes out.
  • The Chessmaster: The events of the seventh novel is basically him manipulating several Familia (amongst them Freya's) to get even for Ishtar raping him earlier.
  • Double Standard: Rape, Female on Male: Averted, at least in the anime. When Ishtar forces him into her bed, and uses her Charm Person powers to interrogate him, it's not played for laughs or titillation, at all. He is shown to be clearly traumatized.
  • Extreme Doormat: To many gods he is a coward with no backbone. However, given he's a Wild Card, this might be an act.
  • Handsome Lech: He's a total pervert. Most of the women he meets are exasperated by him and his flirting.
  • Hot God: As a god, he's pretty much by default handsome by mortal standards.
  • Humans Are Bastards: In episode 12 he provides a group of jealous adventurers with a helmet of invisibility (made by Asfi) so that they can manipulate Bell into a very unfair duel. He tells Asfi that it is so that Bell can learn about the dark side of humanity.
  • It Amused Me: Some of the things he does towards Bell, such as secretly luring him to a spot to peek on the women while they were bathing, which he was totally against. He later reveals to Ishtar Freya's obsession with Bell, prompting her to kidnap him and incurring Freya's wrath as a result.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: It's kind of hard to deny... He often visits the red light district, and tries to get Bell to peek on the girls while they're bathing.
  • Nice Hat: He wears a fedora hat with a feather decorating it.
  • No-Sell: Downplayed. He's one of many male gods captivated by Freya, but he's not so far-gone that he doesn't notice her actions or questions her motive when she does something unusual.
  • Romantic Wingman: At a party, he set Bell and Aiz up to dance together while preventing their respective goddesses from interrupting them for as long as possible. He does this knowing full well what the consequences are, given the goddesses' respective temperaments and their own affections toward their respective followers.
  • Secret Test: Unbeknownst to Bell, he manipulated the situation in episode 12 in order to test Bell's worthiness as Zeus' adoptive grandson.
  • Trickster Mentor: He tries to be this to Bell. Unfortunately, Hermes seems to think that Bell is like him when it comes to women, which... he's not. At least his non-romantic advice is helpful?
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Takemikazuchi.
  • Walking the Earth: He's not in Orario often because he travels a lot, as befits the Olympians' Divine Messenger (there's a reason he's on the Interflora vans; one of the first great delivery services other than pizza).
  • Wild Card: Hermes makes a habit out of betraying everyone he allies with. Everyone. Except maybe Zeus and even then, Dionysus accuses him of disloyalty to Zeus and regards him as Ouranos' dog.

Voiced by: Ai Kayano (JP), Serena Varghese (EN), Yarbet Venegas (Latin America)

The Leader of Hermes Familia.
  • Action Girl: She is level 4 and is the strongest member of her Familia.
  • Alliterative Name: Asfi Al Andromeda
  • Badass Bookworm: Besides her Gadgeteer Genius credentials, Asfi is a highly capable warrior... and she's the leader of the Hermes Familia. Plus she seems to be the only mortal who can tell Hermes what to do, if only occasionally.
  • Beleaguered Assistant. Poor, poor, Asfi. Her god is hardly around, so pretty much all of the work a god would normally do for their familia falls on her. And when he is around, she gets pulled around in his schemes, frustrating her as she pretty much gets no say in it. And to top it all of, he's also pervert enough to engage in being The Peeping Tom.
  • The Dragon: Her relationship with Hermes, in his aspects as a Trickster God and Chessmaster, has heavy shades of this.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Asfi is renowned as one of the five greatest Item Makers alive, meaning she's a combination of inventor and artisan. Her winged sandals are her most impressive creation.
  • Hyper-Competent Sidekick: She's the one who cleans up messes that Hermes gets himself into.
  • Mercury's Wings: Her sandals are a magic item created by herself, named Talaria. Her sandals have wings at the ankles that can grow in size and give her the ability to fly.
  • Red Baron: Known as Perseus, who in Greek Mythology was one of their most famous heroes.
  • The Reliable One: Hermes is almost always missing so she has a lot of work to do. Even when he's here he relies on her a lot.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Her surname is Andromeda, and her God-Given Nickname is Perseus. In Greek mythology, Andromeda became the wife of the hero Perseus after a Rescue Romance. Also, in the myth one of the reasons Perseus survived was because he was gifted a pair of winged sandals by Hermes; Asfi's sandals have wings that enable her to fly, just like the mythical Perseus - in a twist to this version, it's noted that Asfi crafted them herself (see Gadgeteer Genius).
  • Skunk Stripe: She has aqua blue hair with a white stripe in her bangs.
  • Stoic Spectacles: She's a mostly serious and collected woman with glasses.

The God of the Ganesha Familia.

Known as the God of the Masses, Ganesha is a very exuberant persona, and provides excitement for the people such as the God's Banquet, and the Monster Festival.
  • Catchphrase: "I am Ganesha!"
  • Cool Mask: An actually really badass one shaped like a red elephant face.
  • Hidden Depths: Has been working with Ouranos the entire time to lessen the animosity of surface dwellers to creatures of the Dungeon so that the Xenos, intelligent monsters sometimes spawned by the Dungeon, may one day live on the surface in peace.
  • Large Ham:
    • At the end of episode 3, after his tournament has ended for the day, he suddenly jumps into a speech while cleaning up promoting himself. His helpers are unimpressed.
    • Amusingly, in Grand Day, this ends up helping, as he is able to calm and evacuate a large group of civilians by rallying them with his Catchphrase.
  • No Indoor Voice: He always bellows his lines out, especially when he says his Catchphrase.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: When he's told that several monsters he had in storage for the tournament escapes, some of his attendants say they should handle this problem themselves. However, he states that public safety is much more important, and is not above asking the other Familias for help in destroying the escaped creatures. They see his point, and go into town discreetly asking for help, while he continues the tournament to avoid a mass panic.
  • Survivor Guilt: Subverted. He was grief-stricken when he heard that one of his adventurers was murdered, and wished that he died in their place... not out of guilt, but because said adventurer had sex before he was killed. None of the goddesses are amused.

  • Amazon Brigade: The Familia's top fighters are the Barbera, a team of Amazons. All members in the Familia are women (except for Ishtar's slave) and are a force to be reckoned with.
  • Band of Brothels: The Familia is specialized in running brothels. Most of the members are attractive women who act as both adventurers and prostitutes. As such, they're headquartered in the city's Red Light District. In fact, they're said to outright control it.
  • Bare Your Midriff: All the Amazonesses wear midriff-baring tops.
  • Easily Forgiven: The remnants of the Ishtar Familia part with Bell & Haruhime on good terms.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Phryne is the only member of the Familia who ever wears shoes.
  • Stripperific: Most of the Amazons are skimpily dressed. Thankfully averted by Phryne.
  • Watching Troy Burn: The Pleasure quarter is engulfed in flames when Freya orders her Familia to attack Ishtar's. Many of the Ishtar Familia watch in horror as their homes go up in smoke.

    Ishtar 

Ishtar

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ishutal_tachi.png
Voiced by: Takako Honda (JP), Courtney Lomelo (EN)

The Goddess of the Ishtar Familia.
  • Always Second Best: She hates being this to Freya: having the lowest of Familias while Freya is widely respected, being less beautiful than Freya, and only having one top class adventurer while Freya has loads. In fact she tries to charm Bell into her slave just to tick her off... which ends in Freya invading and curb-stomping her Familia in retaliation and Freya herself personally sending Ishtar back to Tenkai.
  • Ambiguously Brown: She has dark skin, but we know nothing about her race and/or ethnicity beyond that though IRL, Ishtar is a Goddess from Mesopotamia, which is middle-Eastern.
  • Arc Villain: She's the main villain of Volume 7.
  • Attempted Rape: She tries to force herself on Bell just to piss off Freya.
  • Bad Boss: If Haruhime has anything to say. Aisha, too.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Ishtar is well aware that she's vastly weaker than Freya, whether in a straight up fight, or familia vs famila. Yet, going by Freya's testimony, which Ishtar doesn't dispute, Ishtar has a long history of "pranking" Freya. Messing with Bell was just the last straw.
  • Charm Person: As a goddess of beauty, she has the same ability as Freya. She activates it by stripping nude. It has no effect on Bell, much to her shock.
  • Cornered Rattlesnake: Nowhere to run, and no minions to hide behind, she lunges at Freya, hoping to do some damage, especially since Freya rightly states that Ishtar's inferiority is due to the latter's lack of elegance. It doesn't help.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Freya completely cripples her Familia and sends her back to Tenkai in one night.
  • Dirty Coward: She abandons her Familia and tries to sprint when Freya retaliates. She ends up suffering a mortal fall after a feeble attempt at striking Freya.
  • Disney Villain Death: Freya confronts Ishtar on a staircase overlooking the Pleasure Quarter. She then slaps the latter, causing her to lose her balance and fall down to her banishment back to heaven.
  • Dress Hits Floor: Whenever she strips to seduce someone, the camera only shows her skirt falling to the floor.
  • Driven by Envy: She wants war against the Freya Familia, using the Killing Stone to Level boost her own Familia, because she's madly jealous that everyone considers Freya a more beautiful goddess than her. She also orders to kidnap Bell and plans to make him her Sex Slave to piss off Freya. She then finds out she took it too far when Freya launches an attack on her familia.
  • Evil Counterpart:
    • While Freya isn't entirely good, Ishtar is in many ways a much darker version of Freya. They share a lot of tropes. This is likely based on their mythology; while both are goddesses of fertility, sexual desire, and love, Ishtar is also a War Goddess and has close ties to her Pantheon's underworld, while Freya is the leader of the Valkyries (who choose the worthy slain after death) and has associations with music and flowers.
    • Also to Hestia. While both are consider LoserDeites with bad reputations among their fellow gods, the similarities end there. Hestia is a virgin goddess who struggled to recruit any members into her familia, while Ishtar is a prostitute who runs a brothel familia and expands her ranks by buying slaves or through kidnapping. Hestia is kindhearted, and while she can be clingy and jealous, will ultimately do the right thing. Ishtar is a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing and is vile to the core. While Hestia has her eyes set on one boy, Ishtar is only concerned with acquiring as many prostitutes as her assets as possible.
  • Evil Is Petty: Why does she want to sacrifice Haruhime in a way that would permanently destroy her soul for a cheap power-up to launch a war on Freya? She resents the fact that people see Freya as prettier than herself.
  • Femme Fatalons: She has long, black nails and is the portrayal of The Vamp in this series.
  • Hate Sink: Goddess Ishtar herself resents the fact that Goddess Freya is viewed as far more beautiful and elegant than herself. To spite the latter, she frames her for unleashing a bunch of dangerous monsters in the town and sets up shop in the pleasure district to run it like a mafia. She creates a system of forced prostitution, kidnapping both women (to serve as prostitutes) and men (to serve as "clients" against their will). She also traffics in slavery and has her slaves suffer the same fate. Then, for a cheap power-up, she sacrifices those slaves in a deadly ritual, taking and destroying their souls to boost her forces for total war on Freya. Lastly, she has her slaves beaten half-to-death, and then rapes them herself, to remove all ability they might have to refuse whatever she might order of them. The last straw is when she has Bell kidnapped and threatened with rape twice. Vindictive, petty, and cruel, Goddess Ishtar is meant to be universally loathed on both sides of the fourth wall.
  • Hot Goddess: Her beauty rivals that of Freya. That said, while she eclipses almost everyone else, Freya has her beat in that regard. This is proven during their final confrontation in which all of her followers had their charms easily overwritten by Freya, making it clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that Freya was more beautiful.
  • I Control My Minions Through...: Abuse, of all kinds, blackmail, enslavement, forced prostitution, mind-control, and rape. Despite all this being public knowledge, she has the gall to be confused, indignant, and outraged that nobody likes her.
  • Jerkass God: She makes Apollo seem like a Nice Guy by comparison. For all his nastiness, at least Apollo doesn't force his familia into prostitution, nor does he force them into Human Sacrifice rituals for a cheap power-up to go after other gods over a petty grudge.
  • Magical Barefooter: Like Hestia, Ishtar is a goddess who walks around barefoot.
  • Never My Fault: In her eyes, her plans going awry is never her doing, it's always someone or something else. When she forcefully reveals Bell's stats and skills, she loudly proclaims he's mocking her because his Realis Phrase makes him Immune to Mind Control.
  • Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: Not only has she personally engaged in the act, but she encourages members of the Familia to do the same. And she is all the more vile because of it.
  • Smoking Is Glamorous: She's a topless sex goddess who is often shown smoking from a kiseru pipe.
  • Unknown Rival: Ishtar views her fellow goddess of beauty and sex Freya as her ultimate rival who she must take out so the Lower World will only see her as the most beautiful goddess. On the other hand, Freya only sees her as a minor nuisance... That is until Ishtar takes her "pranks" too far by kidnapping Freya's favorite boy Bell.
  • The Vamp: Just like Freya, she is aware of her good looks and likes to use them to her advantage. When her Amazonesses drag Bell back to their home, they all try to hide him from her for fear that she'll snatch him up instead.
  • Villainesses Want Heroes: She attempts to charm Bell into joining her, and unlike Freya, a lot of the things she does are unambiguously wrong.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: She doesn't wear a shirt or any form of decent top. She only has a thin piece of clothing around her neck to cover her naughty bits.

As I thought, you're delicious!
Voiced by: Kimiko Saito (JP), Vicky Barosh (EN)

A member of the Ishtar Familia. Being Level 5, she's amongst the most powerful characters in the setting.

  • 0% Approval Rating: She is strong so she becomes the captain, the qualification stops there and overall, she is unpopular among her familia.
  • Acrofatic: She is incredibly fast and agile despite her disproportionately short limbs, Justified as she is a level 5 with much higher agility stats than Bell.
  • Animal Motif: She's often compared to a toad, and certainly acts like one, in addition to simply looking like one.
  • Ax-Crazy: She's demonstrably unstable. In battle, she attacks with wild abandon, living for the thrill of causing as much carnage as possible.
  • An Axe to Grind: She fights with war-axes.
  • Bad is Good and Good is Bad: The reason she thinks she's "beautiful" is purely going by the sheer number of notches she has on her bedpost. She cares not a whit that said "notches" were kidnapped, dragged into her self-proclaimed love-nest against their will, pumped full of terror and/or aphrodisiacs, and horribly tortured until they can't perform, ever again. She calls Haruhime "ugly" because she's aware that Haruhime's a virgin since Haruhime's clients leave when she passes out from Paralyzing Fear of Sexuality.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Demands Haruhime intervene in her fight with Bell by using her "Level-boost" spell. Haruhime does, by casting it on Bell instead. Cue an epic No-Holds-Barred Beatdown on Phryne.
  • Blasphemous Boast: She's so delusional, she'd compare her own "beauty" to that of Freya. Saying this in front of Freya's children bites her royally in the ass, as they do not take kindly such blasphemy about his goddess.
  • Brawn Hilda: She's huge and has a frog-like face. This is especially egregious in that she views herself as a Big Beautiful Woman.
  • Evil Sounds Raspy: She has a low, raspy voice.
  • The Fighting Narcissist: In addition to thinking she's the most beautiful woman alive, she thinks she's the best fighter, ever, and is always itching to show off. To hammer home the point, she goes completely postal when her cheek is scratched by Bell as the two fight over Haruhime.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Nobody in the Ishtar Familia likes her. But she's so strong they can't (and Ishtar won't) get rid of her.
  • Gonk: Even in the novels, she's described to have a boulder-like body, and relative to that size her limbs are too short and her head too large. The anime makes her look like an entirely different art style and that she should belong in a different series altogether. When Bell first sees her, he wonders if she was a monster.
  • Green and Mean: Her clothes are green and she's the absolute most repulsive villain in the series.
  • Hate Sink: She is a giant toad-like woman who has deluded herself into thinking she's the most beautiful woman to ever live, even more than both goddesses of beauty. She enjoys beating her fellow familia members half-to-death whether Ishtar orders her to do it or not, and also does the same to whoever crosses her, especially those men who escape her "affection". Said affection consists of kidnapping men either off the street or in the Orario dungeon, dragging them to a torture chamber in the basement of the Ishtar estate, pumping them full of terror and aphrodisiacs, and then torturing them until she gets bored, leaving them a broken, bloody, and permanently impotent mess. She not only happily chains up Haruhime and tries to kill her in a Human Sacrifice ritual, but slaps her around for the tiniest resistance, real or imagined. A woman so disgusting that even her own familia members would kill her if they could, Phyrne Jamil is written to be loathed by both the fanbase and her many victims.
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard: In two ways.
    • First, she provides the sword to be used in killing Haruhime and placing her soul in the Killing Stone. Bell uses this sword in battle against her.
    • Second, in the anime, her own girth and penchant for stomping craters in the ground while fighting allows Bell to literally beat her down, by slamming her through the stone floor into the level below, where she runs into Ottar.
  • I Reject Your Reality: She is completely delusional. She honestly believes that she's the most beautiful woman in the world, bar none, and that the men she "tastes" are not traumatized to the point of complete impotence, but so utterly love-struck that they won't be "satisfied" by anyone else. It doesn't matter who calls her out on this, or even if she looks in a freaking mirror. There is no way to change her mindset, at all.
  • Ironic Name: As most fans of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries know, Phryne was the name of an extraordinarily beautiful and extremely successful courtesan of ancient Greece. This Phryne most certainly isn't.
  • Karmic Death: She has a long, long history of brutalizing men, in ways mental, physical, and sexual, purely to boost her delusion that she's the most beautiful woman alive. Battered and bloody, she runs into the top Freya warriors (just Ottar in the anime), and brags that she's the most beautiful woman when she realizes she can't win a fight, only for them to shatter her delusions, along with her skull, and with disgusting ease.
  • Lecherous Licking: When she's got Bell in her "love nest" torture dungeon, she literally tastes him by walking in, dripping drool all over the place, and licks his entire face, covering him with saliva, and then points at all her torture implements saying "now where should we start?"
  • Named After Somebody Famous: She's named after the famous 4th century Greek courtesan Phryne.
  • Narcissist: She thinks she's more beautiful than Freya.
  • Oh, Crap!: She gets one when she sees Ottar walking towards her in the anime.
  • Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: She tries to make off with Bell so she can "eat" him in Volume 7. It's also implied that this isn't the first time she's done this... only the first time she's failed.
  • Sadist: She has a very sick hobby of making a bloody mess out of her "customers"/victims.
  • Sexy Backless Outfit: Her outfit leaves her back bare. Not that there's anything sexy about her, though.
  • Signature Laugh: Her trademark "GE-GE-GE-GE-GE-GEH!" laugh.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Yeah, insulting the master of the World's Strongest Man to his face. See where that gets you.
  • Torture Technician: She doesn't just chain down men and pump them full of aphrodisiacs. She's got an entire torture dungeon under the Isthar familia home that Haruhime managed to accidentally stumble upon. Her victims are literally broken and bloody by the time she gets done with them.
  • Villains Want Mercy: When she sees there's no way she can beat Ottar, she shamelessly begs for mercy and offers her body to him if he spares her. Ottar has none of it and only gets pissed at the hideous toad woman when she claims to be more beautiful than Freya.
  • The Worf Effect: With a dash of Worf Had the Flu. Is subjected to this when she runs into the top warriors of the Freya Familia (just Ottar in the anime) during the Freya Familia attack on Ishtar's. She is clearly The Dreaded to Ishtar's other women. But when she runs into them, she's visibly terrified of him, but attacks him anyway. When that fails, she attempts to seduce them, which only angered them even further by claiming to be just as beautiful as Freya.

  • All Amazons Want Hercules: Well, it's not like she can be PICKY as a prostitute, but this is definitely her preference.
  • Bedlah Babe: She wears a purple bedlah with see-through pants.
  • BFS: She often sports a huge sword that is about as tall as she is.
  • Cool Big Sis: She takes good care of the younger Berberas, especially Haruhime even after the Isthar Familia's breakup.
  • Entitled to Have You: At least in the anime, she never hesitates to state that she's targeting Bell's chastity and plans to take it, whether he consents or not.
  • Ethical Slut: While she does enjoy the lots of sex that come with her peculiar line of work, Aisha is a decent person who cares for her fellow prostitutes as if they were her sisters. She was also the only one who actively opposed to Haruhime being made a sacrifice and destroyed a Killing Stone once to save her, but being tortured by Phryne and raped by Ishtar again is too much of a punishment for her to defy them ever again.
  • Femme Fatale: Her first encounter with Bell has him accidentally running into her and her pulling him close, stating that she found him very attractive.
  • Kick Chick: One of her defining features is her long legs which she utilizes with a brutal efficiency and ferocity in combat. Bell learns it in a hard way as she could keep Bell out of reach with just her kicks.
  • Graceful Loser: She smiles when Bell defeats her and rescues Haruhime.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: She often joins Bell's party whenever Bell needs some extra fighting-power. Not that she doesn't want to become a permanent member, but Hestia and Lily will not have it.
  • Hooker with a Heart of Gold: Aside from being one of Ishtar Familia's prostitutes, Aisha is a fairly decent person who is especially nice to Haruhime.
  • Magical Incantation: Her magic, Hell Kaios, comes with one. It's a relatively short chant, resulting in limited firepower compared to a dedicated mage, but her mastery of Concurrent Chanting means she can activate it even when locked in battle with another adventurer of the same level.
    "Come forth, champion of the savages! Raging warrior, brave fighter, greedy, cruel hero. If you desire the girdle of the empress, then prove your worth. Fill my body, pierce my body, kill my body and prove your worth. As I hunger, my name is Hippolyta!"
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: She does not agree with some of the orders Ishtar and Phryne give her, but is forced to play along with them. In fact, she has no choice, as Ishtar charmed her to psychologically compel Aisha to do whatever she asks after Aisha destroyed Isthar's first Killing Stone to protect Haruhime.
  • Never My Fault: In episode 7 of the anime's season 2, when she attacks Bell in the dungeon, she tells him to blame everyone but herself.
    "If you want to hate someone, hate that fickle goddess who has her eyes on you. Blame yourself for catching Ishtar's eye. Blame Ishtar for wanting you!"
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: She once destroyed a Killing Stone in order to save Haruhime's life. When she got found out, Phryne whipped her until she was barely alive and then Ishtar charmed her to rape her nearly to the point of insanity. Aisha doesn't regret protecting Haruhime, but she was so broken that she doesn't dare try saving her a second time.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Her hair covers the right side of her face.
  • Pet the Dog: She's the only one who shows Haruhime any sort of compassion by giving her sweets from time to time.
  • Rape as Backstory: She once rebelled against Ishtar by destroying the Killing Stone meant for the ritual to sacrifice Haruhime. As punishment, Phryne beat her half to death and then dragged her to Ishtar who proceeded to use her Living Aphrodisiac and Charm Person powers to physically and mentally rape her until her mind broke completely. Aisha can't refuse Ishtar's orders anymore after that.
  • She's Got Legs: She has a very lithe figure and her flowing pants emphasize how long her legs are. In fact, she can use them to keep Bell out of reach during their battle for Haruhime's life.
  • Shipper on Deck: She ships Bell X Haruhime post volume 7.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Officially listed at 5'9"/175cm tall and a total stunner.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Delivers one combined with Dare to Be Badass to Bell in volume 7, calling out his cowardice and lack of commitment when it comes to saving Haruhime. She was actually hoping Bell would step up to the plate and do something about it, not that she has anything to lose, anyway.
  • Token Good Teammate: She is possibly one of the nicest members of Ishtar Familia.
  • Trapped in Villainy: She doesn't like many things her Familia does, especially the plan to sacrifice Haruhime to the Killing Stone. However, she knows from experience that if she tries to rebel, what awaits her is brutal torture and rape. Only one time was enough to break her will of opposing Ishtar.
  • Worthy Opponent: She admires anyone who stands up to her, and taunts those that fight her, saying that if they cannot best her in combat then they are not a "real man." At first, she is disappointed when Bell runs away, but as Bell fights back she comes to respect him.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kali_danmemo.jpg
Voiced by: Rie Kugimiya (JP)

Kali is the goddess of the Kali familia. She owns an island full of Amazons.


  • Adaptational Jerkass: In Hindu mythology, Kali is the warlike protector goddess and the manifestation of the mother goddess Parvati's rage. Her violent actions are in pursuit of righteous vengeance against evil, but here she's a Blood Knight who happily pits her children in duels to the death to see who comes out the strongest.
  • Bare Your Midriff: She wears a skimpy top that exposes her midriff.
  • Blood Knight: The way the Kali Familia is managed comes from the fact that she is solely excited by bloodshed. The reason she came all the way to Orario is so she could join Ishtar and fight Freya Familia.
  • Cool Mask: She wears a mask with long spikes.
  • Curtains Match the Windows: She's got red hair and red eyes.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead: She shares her skin tone with the Amazons and she has intense red hair.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: She's barefoot.
  • In Love with Your Carnage: She loves seeing fights and bloodshed no matter who is it that causes it.
  • Magical Barefooter: She's yet another barefoot goddess.
  • Skeletons in the Coat Closet: She wears a necklace made of skulls.
  • Vapor Wear: Her outfit is revealing enough to know for sure that she isn't wearing underwear.
  • You Never Asked: Kali allowed Tione and Tiona to leave her familia, simply because Tiona told Kali she wanted to leave. No one else ever made that request.

    Argana Kalif

Voiced by: Yuu Asakawa (JP)

One of the captains of the Kali familia.


  • Absolute Cleavage: Her dress has a gap in the front that reveals her cleavage.
  • Action Girl: She is an Amazoness after all.
  • All Amazons Want Hercules: After being defeated by Finn she fell in love with him and start to try to seduce him. She is as if not more aggressive in her attempt than Tione.
  • Best Her to Bed Her: This seems to be a trait of the Amazons. They fall in love with the one who defeat them.
  • Blood Knight: She enjoys fighting and the only reason she learned the common language was so she could understand what her opponents were saying.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: She has the same tanned complexion of most Amazoness but sandy blonde hair.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her braid appears to reach all the way to her legs.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: After falling in love with Finn she has no problem stripping in public in an attempt to seduce him.
  • The Social Darwinist: She does not care how many of her people, the Amazoness, she killed or have to kill for her to get stronger. She view it as a natural thing. For the strong to kill the weak.
  • Vampiric Draining: She has a curse that allows her to increase her status by drinking the blood of those received a falna from any god. This is one of the reasons she's at level 6 despite not entering the dungeon.
  • Vapor Wear: The gaps in her outfit make it quite clear she isn't wearing underwear.

    Bache Kalif

The other captain of the Kali familia and younger sister of Argana.


  • Action Girl: She is an Amazoness after all.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her skimpy outfit exposes her midsection.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Like her sister she has sandy blonde hair and tanned skin like most Amazoness.
  • Nice Girl: She is the nicest person in the Kali familia. She used to read stories to young Tiona before Tiona learned how to read and it is implied that she enjoyed it. The only reason she fought the Loki familia was because she was ordered to do so by Kali.
  • Pet the Dog: Despite being an antagonist, the first hint that she was a lot nicer than initially thought was when she spent time learning how to read so she could read Tiona a story.
  • Poisonous Person: Bache's enchant type magic Velgus can imbue things with deadly poison. The poison is unblockable and is stronger than a Poison Vermis's poison, which is known to be deadly.
  • Underboobs: Her outfit reveals the underside of her breasts.

Dionysus Familia

    In General 
  • Badass Crew: To a lesser extent than the likes of Loki Familia and Freya Familia as it's composed of mostly Level 2 adventurers (which are still considered elites when compared to the vast majority) compared to Loki's abundance of Level 5s and 6s.

    Dionysus

Voiced by: Masaya Matsukaze (JP), Adam Noble (EN)

The God of the Dionysus Familia.
  • Classy Cravat: He wears a white cravat around his neck.
  • Evil All Along: We thought he was good and got killed by Enyo, but no, it turns out he really is Enyo like Loki suspected. He was the mastermind behind almost everything the Loki Familia had been fighting since the beginning of the series, he revealed himself when Loki confronted him in SO vol.12

    Filvis Challia 

Filvis Challia

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/filvis_zenshin.png
Voiced by: Hisako Kanemoto (JP), Maggie Flecknoe (EN)

An aloof elf child of the Dionysus Familia and a Captain.
  • Ambiguously Bi: She seems to have developed a very serious crush on Lefiya since Lefiya broke her shell and defrosted her. It might even be somewhat reciprocated. On the other hand, she goes Clingy Jealous Girl when Dionysus gets too friendly with other women.
  • Broken Bird: She refuses to get close to anyone because of Survivor Guilt.
  • Classy Cravat: Like her god, Filvis wears a cravat.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She really doesn't like it when Dionysus gets too friendly with other women, and makes her displeasure known to him and the women he was talking to.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Lefiya manages to defrost her, calling out the fact that the idea that she is cursed is just a rumor and trying to get on her good side.
  • Doom Magnet: Many adventurers believe she dooms any of her party members to death, given there's been at least four parties its happened to.
  • Evil All Along: Turns out she has a double identity, Ein the masked creature.
  • Hates Being Touched: Even among elves who generally don't like being touched by members of other races, her reaction is extreme. Most elves just push the offenders hand away. Filvis goes straight to swinging her sword at the offender. At least Bete had the reflexes to not die from that but Lefiya who is a fellow elf is left wondering why her reaction was that extreme in the first place.
  • Magic Knight: She uses a sword to fight and shorter magic to attack and defend.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Banshee, given in reference to her Doom Magnet reputation.
  • Pointy Ears: She has long and pointy ears to identify her as an elf.
  • Reduced to Dust: The fate of all creatures who have a magic stone. Upon her death, Filvis' ash floated around the hall and created an illusion of the view she and Lefiya had wanted to see after the war was over.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Filvis's alias, Maenads, is the name of the female followers of the god Dionysus in Greek mythology.
  • Survivor Guilt: Certainly quite broken after being the lone survivor at a certain massacre at Level 27 six years before Present Day.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: Even when Lefiya found out she had been working for Enyo, she only felt anger towards the gods and sadness for Filvis.
  • Tragic Villain: When she was stuck in despair and self-loathing over being turned into an undead, Enyo convinced her to help him destroy the city and the adventurers.
  • The Undead: She actually died at the massacre at Level 27 trying to save her familia members, but was brought back to life by the corrupted spirit, being turned into a hybrid between mortal and monster.
  • White Shirt of Death: First she got her neck snapped, then she got eaten by monster with only one of her arms left.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: She has a duplication magic that allows her to create another identity: Ein, whom Filvis had stuffed most of her negative emotions into, but this also damaged her mental health.

Artemis Familia

    In General 

    Artemis 

Artemis

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/artemis_danmachi.jpg
Voiced by: Maaya Sakamoto (JP), Avery Smithhart (EN)

The virginal goddess of the moon, purity, and the hunt and the head of the familia bearing her name. She comes to Orario to recruit Bell for a quest to help slay the monster Antares.
  • Action Girl: Unlike most gods and goddesses, who are helpless against monsters without their divine powers, Artemis leads a monster-slaying familia and helps her children fight them.
  • Assist Character: She makes an appearance in Memoria Freese as an obtainable assist character.
  • Braids of Action: She wears her hair in a braid and as a goddess of hunt, she's a very capable fighter.
  • Fantastic Nuke: Her divine power is to unleash the "strongest arrow" that could annihilate the entire Lower World in one shot. Naturally, she can't use it lest she be immediately sent back to Tenkai. Antares plans to use her Arcanum to do just that, forcing Artemis to send a copy of herself to Orario to get someone to slay her to prevent this from happening.
  • Frontline General: She takes the fight to the monsters directly rather than let her children hunt them for her. Unfortunately, it backfires horrifically when she's devoured by Antares, allowing the monster to slaughter her familia with the use of her Arcanum.
  • I Cannot Self-Terminate: After she was devoured by Antares, she manages to send a residue to Orario to recruit an Orion to use her arrow to slay her and Antares.
  • Master Archer: As a goddess of hunt, Artemis is the best archer known in Heaven and is stated to never miss no matter the situation.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: She's a longtime friend of Hestia, the latter of which notices her acting oddly childish and naive compared to the no-nonsense, badass warrior she knew in Tenkai. Most notably, Artemis acts incredibly affectionate toward Bell even though Hestia remembers her as a romance-hating virginal goddess. It turns out, this is because this Artemis they met is a "residue" of the original she dispatched just before she was swallowed whole in hopes of finding the one who could wield her arrow and slay Antares.
  • Pervert Revenge Mode: According to Hestia, Artemis got very scary when she punished Hermes and other gods for trying to peep at her in the bath. She's different now, so she's quite nonchalant about Bell interrupting her bath.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches down past her back.
  • Sexy Backless Outfit: Her dress is backless.
  • Soul Fragment: The Artemis that travels with the main group for most of the movie is really a mere "residue" of her soul. Her real body has been absorbed by the monster Antares.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has blue hair.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: She wears thigh-high boots and a mini dress, leaving some her upper leg bare.

Voiced by: Jun Fukushima (JP)

The God of the Ikelos Familia.
  • Authority in Name Only: In regards to his familia’s monster smuggling. While he still heads his familia, it is Dix calling the shots.
  • Evil Wears Black: His outfit is a black tracksuit and he doesn't stop his Familia from getting involved in the black market because it's so entertaining to him.
  • It Amused Me: He doesn't care what amoral or outright criminal things his Familia does as long as it's amusing to him.
  • Not Me This Time: He isn’t lying when he claims the capturing of monsters isn’t his doing. It is the work of his familia, and while he does nothing to stop them, he otherwise gives no contribution to their activities.

    Dix Perdix 

Dix Perdix

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dix_8.png
Voiced by: Daisuke Namikawa (JP)

A first-class adventurer who disregards his familia's god and acts as his desires go.
  • Arc Villain: He's the main villain of Volumes 9 and 10 as he's the ringleader of the members of Ikelos Familia that are planning to hunt and sell the Xenos monsters.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: Although Ikelos is the god of the Familia, all the members are following Dix's plan of capturing and selling the Xenos monsters.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: His left eye's iris has a D symbol circling his pupil. This is proof that that he's a descendant of Daedalus.
  • Famous Ancestor: He's a descendant of the legendary architect Daedalus.
  • For the Evulz: Especially in the anime. He and his group capture and smuggle monsters out of the dungeon and gets paid for it, but his actual motivation is simply to "hunt" them down and torment them.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: He wears goggles with translucent smoky quartz lenses.
  • Karmic Death: He is killed by Asterius
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: His surname, Perdix, is a reference to the nephew and student of Daedalus from Greek mythology.
  • Repetitive Name: Dix Perdix
  • Sadist: He lives for torturing, tormenting, and otherwise inflicting suffering on others, especially the Xenos.
  • Stupid Evil: He puts a higher priority on making monsters suffer than getting paid selling them off. In the anime, he's even seen stabbing through the bars of cages and killing monsters, reducing them to dust, when he's bored, agitated, or just looking to get his sadism itch scratched.

Apollo Familia

    In General 
  • Breaking the Fellowship: After their defeat in the War Game, Hestia has their familia forcibly disbanded and Apollo run out of town.
  • Bullying the Dragon: Their feud with the Hestia familia began with several of their members belittingly their accomplishments and insulting Hestia.
  • Moral Myopia: They have the gall to be enraged at the Hestia famila's Combat Pragmatism, after putting them through the list below:
    • One of their members goes and publicly harasses Bell, Welf, and Lilly in a bar, even blocking their path when they try to leave.
    • The rest of the members present openly attack after the aggressor gets a bit of beer splashed in his face, for insulting Hestia herself.
    • When Bell, Welf, and Lilly fight them off, Hyacinth attacks and absolutely brutalizes Bell for the Crime of Self-Defense.
    • Luan puts Bell through a Frame-Up by Playing the Victim Card with a Wounded Gazelle Gambit so Apollo can challenge Hestia to a "war" that she's not likely to win.
    • When Hestia wisely turns him down, leading Bell away, the next morning, Apollo familia blows up Hestia's church, with Bell and Hestia inside, and openly hurl violence on the both of them as they flee through town, not only involving many innocent bystanders in the collateral damage, but hiring Soma familia to help them put even more pressure on Bell and Hestia.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: The adventurer's guild sighs in resignation at their attack upon the Hestia familia because no matter what sanction or fine they levy, Apollo familia will just pay it, and go right back to what they were doing.
  • Underestimating Badassery: This famila believed they had a high advantage against Hestia's group with their 100 members to their five. They never expected them to use underhanded tactics and loopholes.

    Apollo 

Apollo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/apollon_tachi.png
Voiced by: Ryota Ohsaka (JP), Blake Jackson (EN)

The God of the Apollo Familia.
  • Ambiguously Bi: He prefers boys over girls, but certainly he is interested in girls as well. That's why, on one hand, Daphne and Cassandra are his children, and on the other hand he tries to steal Bell away from Hestia.
  • Arc Villain: The main villain for Volume 6 where he takes an interest in Bell and wages war with the Hestia Familia to try and attain him for himself.
  • Determinator: Once he decides he wants you in his familia, he will not stop. He hunted Cassandra and her friend through multiple continents until they had nowhere else to go.
  • Evil Is Petty: Which gets lampshaded. Despite hiring Soma famila to help with his harassment campaign against Hestia and her familia, he denies both her request for a one-on-one duel, calling her "lazy" because Bell is her only "child" at the time, and only after goading from Loki and Freya, of all people, agrees to let Hestia ask for help, but only allows one adventurer who has no official affiliation to any of the familia in Orario. All the other gods call him "petty" as a direct result.
  • The Exile: After his familia is beaten, Hestia has him booted back to Heaven, or at least out of Orario, permanently.
  • Has a Type: He likes youthful boys and girls, to the point that some of his children went into his familia against their will, although he treats them well.
  • Hate Sink: He's a petty and narcissistic jerk trying to take away the only member of Hestia Familia out of creepy stalkerish obsession.
  • Jerkass God: Would you believe this guy makes Freya look like a Nice Girl? If constantly insulting Hestia and leering at Bell doesn't count, what will?
  • "Just Joking" Justification: When Hestia comes after him, after his familia lost the war-game, he tries to get out of his end of the pact by claiming all his despicable acts up to that point were all just a harmless joke. In the anime, at least, Hestia decides to make his loss even more significant, not just by taking all his assets, but forcing him to disband his familia and exiling him from Oratario, permanently.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: His familia destroyed Hestia's church in an ambush. As payback for this, Hestia takes his manor.
  • Lecherous Licking: Does a hammy one after stating that he intends to take Bell from Hestia.
  • Narcissist: While he may have fleeting "crushes," he's truly in love only with himself.
  • Shrine to Self: When Hestia confiscated the mansion formerly owned by Apollo familia, she found paintings and statues of Apollo everywhere, and it took quite a bit of time and expense to get rid of all of them.
  • Smug Smiler: He has a disgustingly smug smirk whenever he spits at Hestia. It drops immediately after his group is defeated.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: How he "recruits" his familia. Should an adventurer catch his eye, male or female, he will hunt them down, to the corners of the earth, until they have no choice but to join, because they have nowhere else to go.
  • Suicidal Overconfidence: Mostly justified. The field was grossly skewed in his favor, even so, to tell Hestia "I will follow all your conditions" in the unlikely event she'd win was a horrible idea, and he pays for it, dearly.

    Hyacinth Clio 

Hyacinth Clio

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hyaquintos_tachi.png
Voiced by: KENN (JP), Joe Daniels (EN)

The captain of the Apollo familia.
  • Ambiguously Gay: He seems willing to do anything for Apollo and was very annoyed with how Bell has his attention, to the point that he was willing to kill him over it. This alludes to his Classical Mythology basis as Apollo's lover.
  • The Bully: He loves to kick around people weaker than himself, even if they're on his side.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: He is so desperately jealous for Apollo's affection that he will outright murder the "competition."
  • Hate Sink: He's a petty and insanely jealous asshole who wants to torture Bell for catching Apollo's attention.
  • Irony: His magic Aro Zephyros is basically a magical discus. His Classical Mythology basis was accidentally killed by Apollo's discus.
  • Irrational Hatred: He hates and wants to kill Bell, for the "crime" of being Apollo's Lust Object, something Bell never wanted, asked for, or had any control over, in any way.
  • Light Is Not Good: When he has to resort to magic, he summons a whirling disk made entirely of light that homes in on his target, and he's an especially despicable individual.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Wears long hair in a pony-tail, and is physically handsome, at least in the anime, but his personality is entirely despicable.
  • Mean Boss: How does he reward Cassandra for telling him to run, when Bell is preparing to fire a massive Fire-bolt directly beneath his feet? Smacks her down, and kicks her.
  • Meaningful Name: He is every bit as toxic, clingy, and smothering as the plant he's named after, a hyacinth, and every bit as superficially attractive.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Hyakinthos's first name is derived from the lover of Apollo in Greek mythology, Hyacinthus, who was turned into a hyacinth flower when he died.
  • Sadist: He lives to cause people pain.
  • This Cannot Be!: When Hestia familia winds up curbstomping his, almost immediately after the starter bell rang.
  • Undying Loyalty: He is one of the few former Apollo Familia members that still follow Apollo after the latter's banishment.
  • Who Are You?: In episode 4 of season 2, when seeing Bell has improved so much, that he can't simply bully the kid any more, he voices the trope name, word for word. Note that he's a level 3, while Bell is a level 2.

    Luan Espel 
Voiced by: Sayumi Suzushiro (JP), Margaret McDonald (EN)

The Prum that provokes Bell in a bar, starting the fight between Hestia familia and Apollo familia.
  • Agent Provocateur: Went out of his way to harass and provoke Bell, Welf, and Lilli, even physically blocking their way at one point. When Welf "accidentally" spilled beer on him in response, the rest of Apollo familia took that as the okay to start giving Bell and Hestia hell.
  • Fallen-on-Hard-Times Job: In the eighth novel, we see he working as a bar waiter.
  • Frame-Up: Shows up at the god's feast where all the familias attend, bandaged from head to toe, and pretending to be in agony, blaming Bell for critically wounding him. Apollo uses this as a pretext to openly attack Hestia familia, even going so far as to blow up the church Hestia lives in, while it's fully occupied.
  • Framing the Guilty Party: Lili makes him realize how it feels to have your reputation ruined through a Frame-Up by impersonating him, and making him appear like a traitor to his familia.
  • Hobbits: His race are basically short, childlike humans. This is exactly why fellow Prum Lili chose him as the impersonatee due to the lack of Shapeshifter Baggage here.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Used theatrics to start a major conflict between two familia, for shits and giggles. Got impersonated by Lilli, framed as a traitor, and his likeness was used to bring about his own familia's ruin, with his former team-mates now out for his blood.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Disguised himself as grievously wounded to frame Bell and start a fight between Apollo and Hestia familias.

The Guild

    Ouranos 

Ouranos

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/uranus_zenshin.png
Voiced by: Toru Okawa (JP), Marty Fleck (EN)

A god that controls the adventurer's Guild. The first god to descend to Gekai and offer blessings, his prayers are responsible for keeping the Dungeon in check.
  • Adaptational Heroism: In the original myths Ouranos was an evil tyrant.
  • Big Good: He leads the Guild, which is responsible for keeping order in Orario. However, there is an agreement that the Guild must not become another Familia, and thus Ouranos doesn't seem to have much power. In his own words, he rules, but he does not govern. As the story progresses it becomes apparent that Ouranos has a much greater role within the Guild then he first appears to. He assists Loki Familia in their hunt for Enyo, and protects the Xenos.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: His assurance alone that his prayers will keep monsters from invading Orario is enough to calm Royman down when all hell is breaking loose. He ultimately ends up bending, if not breaking, the agreement he had made with the Guild to be strictly neutral in the affairs between Familias, but he does this in the best interest of everyone.
  • The Omniscient Council of Vagueness: During that brief period where we know that they're doing something behind the scenes but the main characters aren't directly involved. After that, we know that they're working to fight threats within the dungeon and protect the Xenos, but the protagonists are still on a need to know basis, so this might not be the only thing they're hiding.

    Fels 

Fels

Voiced by: Mikako Komatsu (JP), David Matranga (EN)

A mysterious mage who is affiliated with Ouranos.
  • Ambiguous Gender: It's not clearly exactly what gender Fels is given the cloak that he's wearing. Turns out Fels is just a living skeleton. There's no way of knowing whether Fels was a man or a woman before being reduced to bones.
  • The Archmage: He was once the Sage, and thus one of the greatest mages ever.
  • Black Cloak: His standard form of attire. This helps mask the fact that he's an undead sorcerer.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Fels is first seen in a dark cloak which masks his identity, and his appearance under it is frightening. However, as he's allied with the Guild, he's one of the good guys.
  • Mysterious Backer: Fels serve this role for the main characters at first. He's genuinely benevolent, but limited by the non-interference clause imposed on Ouranos, so he has to keep his involvement secret even after his allegiances and motives are revealed.
  • Our Liches Are Different: He was once the Sage who created the Philosopher's Stone, which granted him immortality. However, it turned him into a monster. Underneath his robes, he is actually a skeleton.
  • Walking Spoiler: Even putting Fels in this folder is a bit of a spoiler, since in the beginning Fels seems to be an antagonist.

Voiced by: Ryou Sugisaki (JP), Mark Mendelsohn (EN)

The leader of the Guild and de-facto ruler of Orario.
  • Gonk: He's rather short by elf standards and years of good living have made him rather portly, to the point he is called "The Guild Pig". This is noted to be extremely unusual for an elf. In each volume, when he is introduced, we hear this... again and again.
  • The Hedonist: This is responsible for Royman's appearance, or maybe it is because of Post-Stress Overeating.
  • Obstructive Bureaucrat: Despite Eina calling on him to step in, he just sits on his ass while the Apollo Familia are attacking Bell and Hestia in broad daylight.
  • Pointy Ears: Since he's an elf, his ears are long and pointy.

Eina acts as Bell's advisor who looks out for his well-being when it comes to his adventures in the dungeon. She starts to become concerned upon realizing that he is leveling up quicker than normal.
  • Affectionate Gesture to the Head: She loves bopping Bell on the nose as a sign of her affection.
  • Cool Big Sis: Is this towards Bell, constantly watching out for his well-being.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: She's an elf-human hybrid.
  • Marshmallow Hell: Even Eina does this to Bell when they go out shopping.
  • Meganekko: She wears glasses and is compassionate and motherly to Bell.
  • Ms. Exposition: Her job as a Guild worker is to advise newbie adventurers like Bell and educate them on the dangers of the dungeon to improve their chances of survival. This involves explaining concepts to Bell and by extension the viewer.
  • Older Than They Look: She plays the part of a mature office lady while working at the guild, but she teasingly points out that she looks younger in her casual clothes as Bell gawks at her.
  • Pointy Ears: She has pointed ears because she's a half-elf.
  • Sexy Mentor: She serves as an adviser and mentor for Bell. Eina has an unprofessional tendency to get attached to her pupils, though, unusual among Guild receptionists (who know the downsides of loving someone that could die any day now.) She seems to harbor feelings for Bell and is not above flirtatiously teasing him.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: She's already fairly pretty in her usual appearance, but she's a whole deal more attractive when she's out of her work clothes and having her glasses off.

Voiced by: Yuka Keichou (JP), Brenda Valdevia (EN), Victoria Funes Grimaux (Latin America)

The owner of the pub.

Mia is a retired dwarf adventurer, and chooses only to hire women to work at her establishment. She also has a soft-spot for Bell due to knowing that one of her employees likes him.
  • Apron Matron: She fits this trope to a T:
  • Big Beautiful Woman: She's quite curvaceous despite being fairly chubby.
  • Boobs of Steel: She has a bust go along with her size and is the former captain of the Freya Familia and an ex-Level 6 Adventurer.
  • Chef of Iron: A powerful ex-adventurer on top of being a skilled chef whose pub is among the most popular in all of Orario.
  • Declaration of Protection: Deliver one at the end of Episode Lyu:
    Mia: I'm not only your master, but also your 'Mother', and that makes you my 'Daughter'. Everything in this pub belongs to me, and I'm not going let any idiots to have any funny idea with my property.
  • Large and in Charge: A good six feet tall and a bit on the chubby side. No one dares to mess with her.
  • Our Dwarves Are All the Same: She's an extremely burly bartender who is a former adventurer, but at 180cm, she's taller than many female humans in the story, much less dwarves. Particularly strange given that Gareth, the other major Dwarf character, plays this straight (he's 151cm tall, or just below 5 feet. 170cm, roughly average height for a Japanese man, is explicitly noted to be tall for a dwarf, so dwarves are shorter than average.
  • Red Baron: Retired or not, as expected she has a well known title. Demi Ymir, the Little Giant.
  • Retired Badass: She makes it quite clear who is in charge of her pub, able to casually split a table in two with a single blow while reminding troublemakers to pay their tab. She used to be the Level 6 Captain of the Freya Familia, the same position that Finn holds in the Loki Familia.
  • Shockingly Expensive Bill/Work Off the Debt: How she gets her employees, not that she cares if they could ever pay it off.

  • Saloon Owner: Owner of the Hostess of Fertility.
  • Supreme Chef: Her food is considered delicious by all of her patrons, to the point that even elite familia like the Loki Familia frequent it.

    Syr Flover 

Syr Flover

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/syr_flover.jpg
Voiced by: Shizuka Ishigami (JP), Juliet Simmons (EN), Ailéen Campos Hee (Latin America)

A waitress working at the pub.

Syr has a crush on Bell, and provides him with supplies for his trips to the dungeon.
  • Beware the Nice Ones:
    • Her whisper to Liliruca after the latter gets caught holding stolen property shows that she clearly has a dark-side underneath her harmless maid persona. In the novels, she even gives a potent glare to Mia when she wouldn't let her take a day off to hang out with Bell. Not that it worked, but having the guts to do that against someone who can intimidate high-level adventurers is impressive.
    • The other girls at the pub have even said on more than one occasion that Syr "is a witch"; not maliciously, but in her many abilities that she uses to her advantage.
    • When Hermes asks Mia about sending a message to Freya, Syr asks him why Bell was also in the Pleasure District. Though she does nothing more than ask him that, the aura she's giving off at that moment scares him.
  • Born Lucky: Invoked, she somehow seemed to gain this trait from Bell after touching his hand.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl:
    • Though subtle, Syr is visibly shocked when Bell excitedly holds Lyu's hand after she shows him the knife they recovered from Liliruca but he thought he dropped in the dungeon. Lyu at least tries to tell Bell to say and do this to Syr.
    • At one point she manipulates Bell into giving her a lap pillow, and later goes on to brag about it to Aiz, who goes through a variety of emotions throughout the conversation. She likely did so, knowing about Bell's infatuation with the girl.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Underestimating Syr will be the last mistake you ever make. She's yet to get into a proper fight, but her badassness comes from her ability to persuade and dissuade others in situations that always gets her on top.
  • Crush Blush: Shows several towards and regarding Bell.
  • God Was My Copilot: The seemingly normal waitress Syr is Freya's human disguise that she uses to get close to Bell and secretly assist in his rapid growth in power.
  • Guile Hero: She may not be one for actual action like Ryuu, but her ability to read people and her overall incredible skill at poker was vital for them rescuing Anna.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • She has the connections necessary to obtain a falsified invite to a prestigious and exclusive casino, the acting skills to put up a convincing ruse, and the ability to charm several male gods to help sell the ruse. Even Lyu was shocked by the first part alone.
    • She's also very good at reading people, to the point that was able to unnerve some slavers in a poker game, and her own colleagues say it's like she knows every move they'll make in a poker game. While explaining her ability to read people to said slavers, she brings up a certain goddess'note  similar ability to read people.
  • Horrifying the Horror: She manages to make Hermes sweat bullets after poking holes in his story of Bell being in trouble, leading a flustered Hermes to tell her she shouldn't go around scaring gods. Bonus points she does all this with a sweet smile on her face.
  • Lethal Chef: The Drama CD goes even says her food is more likely to knock out a Level 4 adventurer than be edible. So far, Bell is the only one who can eat her cooking without adverse side effects. One has to wonder how Bell managed to acquire his Abnormal Resistance skill...
  • Mama Bear: Displays this during the Holiday campaign Winter Magic Miracle from Memoria Freese when Noelle goes missing.
  • Meido: Her job at the pub.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity:
    • Syr acts like a sweet yet somewhat ditzy girl, but once you believe it, you've fallen into her trap. She's surprisingly manipulative and devious for what her personality and sweet looks imply.
    • In her "Grand Casino" mission, she's able to play, basically bankrupt, and completely destroy the richest men at her poker table... and they were working together!
  • Older Than They Look: Shockingly enough, she appears during the events of Astraea Record seven years before the main story looking no older or younger than she does in the present despite being officially 18.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: She's the perky and sociable Red to Lyu's cool and reserved Blue.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Syr is one of Freya's aliases in Norse mythology. This is a major hint as Syr is indeed Freya's disguise.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Seal or Syr? The latter is an alias once used by Freya in Norse mythology.
  • Super Power Lottery: Invoked, does Syr truly have powers like her co-workers imply, or is she just "observant" as she claims? Either way, Syr has demonstrated a laundry list of "abilities" that even Lyu is amazed by.
    • Syr appeared to have "borrowed" Bell's Born Lucky abilities just by touching his hand. How that is even possible wasn't explained at the time.
    • During a poker game, she can determine what a player's hand is by reading their eyes and easily manipulate the game into her favor.
    • There are multiple moments where Syr whispers into people's ears, causing them to panic and go into a fear-induced stupor.
  • Through His Stomach: She consistently provides Bell with lunches for his dungeon expeditions. The problem is her cooking is abysmal.
  • Two Aliases, One Character: Syr is actually Freya when she takes the form of a girl in her familia who made a magic pact with her in the past. Freya uses her Syr identity mainly to get close to Bell without anyone suspecting anything.
  • Walking Spoiler: It's made painfully clear that there's more to Syr than meets the eye. Freya calls Syr her "Important Daughter", and she just so happens to find a priceless grimoire lying around that she hands to Bell not long after Freya becomes infatuated with him.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: A minor one and Played for Laughs when she brings Bell back to the diner to have him do the dishes she neglected to do. This does at least give him an opportunity to talk to Lyu a little bit about adventuring and how to become stronger.

    Ryuu Lyon 

Ryuu Lyon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lyu_lyon.png
Voiced by: Saori Hayami (JP), Genevieve Simmons (EN), Rae Bael (Latin America)

An elf waitress working at the pub.

Ryuu is an experienced former adventurer who is often seen alongside Syr.
  • Action Girl: Quite a capable fighter, particularly after Bell finds out she used to be an adventurer just like him. According to the author, if she had continued being an Adventurer, she would have reached Level 6 around the same time as Ais, one of the most talented adventurers in the series.
  • Adaptational Badass: In the light novel, she single-handedly takes on a third of Apollo Familia – that's a little over 30 members – holding them off while Bell hunts down Hyacinth. In the anime, she takes on, and defeats, half of them all by herself.
  • Almighty Janitor: While she usually works as a waitress, she's actually an incredibly powerful adventurer.
  • Badass Boast: Delivers one as it relates to the following trope.
    Ryuu: I'm afraid I have more important concerns than my race's hatred [toward the Crozzos]. If helping a friend is shameful, then I'll be as shameful as I have to be!
  • Batman Grabs a Gun: Despite the fact that the Crozzo family's weapons devastated the Elven homelands, she gladly takes up and uses Welf's swords to help Bell in book 6. An Elf in the Apollo Familia even tries to call her out on it.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Do not ever mention "The Lion of the Gale" around her. She goes into a murderous rage that terrifies level 4 adventurers.
    • Everything involving Evilus and the destruction of the Astraea Familia will quickly earn her attention and anger.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: She will beat up anyone who tries to harass her with a mug, and she is utterly ruthless when it comes to Evilus.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl:
    • In spite of the fact she's a Shipper on Deck for Syr and Bell, in the Familia Chronicle spin-off, she was uncomfortable when Syr showed off what she looked like in a dress to Bell.
    • During episode 2 of season 3, she initially refuses to go into the dungeon with Bell's group. However, she quickly changes her mind when Aisha offers to go, and hints that she wanted Bell to pay for her services with his body. While Ryuu claims she was going to protect his chastity for Syr, she also threw her restaurant plate at Aisha rather hard.
  • The Comically Serious: She's almost always incredibly deadpan, in sharp contrast to the more emotive Anya and Syr.
  • Covert Pervert: In the OVA, Is It Wrong to Expect a Hot Spring in a Dungeon?, when Bell gets exposed, she covers her eyes while peeking through her fingers.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She tells Bell more about her past in episode 12. The Astraea Familia which she belonged to was ambushed by the Ruoua Familia, a familia working with Evilus, and everyone but herself was killed. She then went on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge, wiping out the Ruoua Familia. She was blacklisted from the guild as a result, and would have died in some back alley were it not for Syr bumping into her and bringing her to Mia.
  • Does Not Know Her Own Strength: The other waitresses who are themselves mostly also retired high-leveled adventurers who don't like training with her because she has trouble holding back.
  • Hates Being Touched: Like many other Elves, she doesn't allow others to touch her and will knock away any hand going to touch her. The only three persons she allows to touch her are Bell, Syr and Alise. Played for Laughs with Anya who persistently tries to hug her and gets knocked the across the room by Ryuu in Episode Ryuu.
  • Improbable Weapon User: In one chapter, she throws an apple at someone so hard that the apple breaks into pieces upon impact. She also tosses a coin at Lili's hand, which causes her to drop Bell's knife which she had stolen from him. She stops a blade aimed at Bell from troublemakers in the bar with the handle of her beer mug, and in episode 12, she nearly gives Bell a Close-Call Haircut when she tosses something at him after he accidentally runs into her bathing. The tree next to him has a huge hole in it from whatever she threw at him.
  • Lethal Chef: She is completely senseless when comes to cooking. It is really hard to tell whose cooking is worse, hers or Syr's.
  • Matchmaker Crush: Despite wanting Bell and Syr together she ends up falling in love with Bell herself.
  • Magic Knight: She is both a very skilled swordsmen and powerful mage.
  • Meido: Her job at the pub.
  • Ninja Maid: A Meido combined with being a seasoned adventurer, hence the trope.
  • Not So Above It All: In spite of the fact that she's a badass and stoic elf, she's still capable of being embarrassed when her stomach growls in hunger at the wrong moment.
  • Older and Wiser: Her appearance in Astraea Record retroactively makes her this in the present. She was far more hot-headed and emotional in her days as part of the Astraea Familia, butting heads with fellow adventurer Kaguya and flying into rages unheard of for Lyu in the present.
  • One-Man Army: In volume 6, she takes on about 1/3 of Apollo Familia members (which is about 30 people) on her own, without using magic or a magic sword, and triumphs. This makes "The Mysterious Adventurer" an instant hit in Orario.
  • Pointy Ears: As an elf, she has long and pointy ears.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Syr's Red.
  • Rei Ayanami Expy: She's a stoic elf girl with bobbed green hair and has a Dark and Troubled Past.
  • Retired Badass: She's a former Level 4 adventurer. She still takes up Jobs from time to time, but most of them are to rescue and help others rather than to actually go adventuring in the Dungeon.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: She sought revenge for her murdered comrades in the city, but because of the way she did it, she was blacklisted from the Guild. The extent of her rampage is elaborated in Episode Ryuu:
    She spared no one in her quest for revenge... including merchants who sold to her enemies... and adventurers themselves. However, [the Guild were] forced to take action [...] because her rampage... even went as far as Guild employees who colluded with her targets.
  • Shipper on Deck: For Bell and Syr.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Ryuu or Lyu, take your pick.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: She is very stoic most of the time, but gets warm up to the people she trust, turns out she is a very kind and caring person.
  • Sweet Polly Oliver: While undercover at Orario's largest casino, she dresses up as a young male Elf noble with Syr as her escort and easily passes through without arousing suspicion. Bell and his companions only recognized her because the former is a regular at the Hostess of Fertility along with their prior adventure together in the Dungeon and the latter were once beaten by her.
  • Tragic Keepsake: The pair of short swords Kodachi Futaba she uses were gifts from a far-eastern member of Astraea Familia. Those were the only weapons she didn't leave at the Astraea Familia grave.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Syr.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: In order to infiltrate the Casino in Episode Ryuu, Ryuu goes undercover as "Mr. Maximilian", complete with tight-fitting suit.
  • Wooden Katanas Are Even Better: Her main weapon Alvs Lumina is actually just a wooden sword. Justified as it is made from a branch of holy tree from her home forest. It has surprisingly high attack power and durability, boosts the user's magic power, and is highly compatible with Elven magic. Considering Ryuu's combat style, this is the perfect weapon for her.
  • You Remind Me of X: Syr often reminds her of Alise and Astraea.
  • You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry: Says this combined with a Death Glare to an adventurer when he angrily confronts Bell for protecting Liliruca after she stole something from him. Fortunately the guy walks away.

Xenos

    In General 
  • All of the Other Reindeer: Humans fear and hate them for being monsters, while non-sentient monsters attack them just like they attack humans. Not having a real place to belong, they're forced to stay hidden in the Dungeon.
  • Benevolent Monsters: The Xenos are intelligent and generally nice monsters who only attack in self-defense.
  • Meaningful Name: "Xenos" (ξένος) is Greek for "foreign(er)" or "strange(r)".
  • Reincarnation: There's the theory that the Xenos monsters gained intelligence through the cycle of death and rebirth in the Dungeon. That some Xenos can remember things they never experienced in their current lives supports this.
  • Sexy Dimorphism: While there are a few like Arles that break this trope, the anime shows many of the male monsters being typical monster looks while the female monsters usually end up being a Cute Monster Girl and having humonoid appearances compared to their male counterparts.

    Asterius 

Asterius

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/asterius_concept_art.png

A powerful sentient monster who shares a history with Bell.


  • A Load of Bull: He's a very powerful Minotaur with red horns.
  • An Axe to Grind: His weapon of choice is a battle axe.
  • Blood Knight: Asterius craves battle especially against strong opponents.
  • It's Personal: He has a personal interest in Bell and considers him to be his rival because in his past life he was the Minotaur Bell defeated on the 9th floor.
  • The Juggernaut: He easily bowls over anyone who stands in his way. Even as a group, the Loki Familia has considerable trouble trying to stop him.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Finn notes that Asterius relies more on his natural abilities than on technique. He suspects that if Asterius trained more, he'd be on par with Ottar, who is the strongest Adventurer.
  • World's Strongest Man: He is considered the strongest Xenos seen so far. His strength is estimated to be around that of a Level 7 Adventurer.

    Wiene 

Wiene

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wiene_character_art.jpg
Voiced by: Rina Hidaka (JP), Cat Thomas (EN)

A sentient monster that Bell finds wounded on the 19th floor of the dungeon.
  • Afraid of Their Own Strength: After she accidentally scratches Bell with her claws she cries and tries to back away from him. Bell reassures her that he's okay and Welf helps her with this by trimming her claws down.
  • And I Must Scream: In the anime, she speaks of her past before becoming self-aware. She mentions her life being one giant waking nightmare where her body indiscriminately attacked everyone she came across but wouldn't listen to her will, until she found herself in Bell's custody, and he tended to her wounds.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Imprints on Bell because he treats her kindly and always looks after her.
  • Casting Gag:
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She did not like it when other Xenos were getting close to Bell and when Arles tried to interact with him she immediately told her that Bell was hers.
  • Cute Little Fangs: She has long fangs due to being a dragon girl, but they only look cute in her.
  • Cute Monster Girl: She's a dragon, but looks like a cute girl with blue hair, blue skin, long fangs, claws, and scales in several places on her body.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: She's always barefoot because she hates wearing clothes in general.
  • Fantastic Racism: On the receiving end of this, as she's a monster from the dungeon, but Bell sees her as a scared little girl. Even the Hestia Familia wanted to kill her on the spot and only reluctantly takes her in when Bell insists on protecting her.
  • Going Commando: While the Hestia Familia get her to at least wear a robe, she doesn't have any underwear on.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: She tries to get rid of the cape covering her body whenever possible. She immediately took off the clothes that Haruhime gave her when they first wash her. It took considerable convincing to have her wear a cape and keep it on. She also fails to understand why the women in the Hestia Familia don't want to take a bath with Bell and goes to see him after the bath without putting her cape on.
  • Naked First Impression: Bell first finds her naked in the forest. He lends her his cape to cover herself.
  • Naked on Arrival: She's introduced completely naked as she's running from some pursuers.
  • Never Given a Name: When the Hestia Familia asks for her name, she doesn't have one. They tell Bell to name her and they quickly decide on Wiene.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: She rescues a little girl from falling crates. The scared child runs off, and the nearby crowd begins pelting her with stones, thinking she attacked the little girl instead.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: She is a Vouivre, a kind of dragon. Although, there's very little dragon-like about her appearance as she's one of the most humanoid monsters seen in the Dungeon.
  • Pointy Ears: She has long, pointy ears.
  • Super Hearing: As a dragon type monster, Wiene has a sharp sense of hearing.
  • When She Smiles: Her smile is adorable on both sides of the fourth wall.
  • Winged Humanoid: When Wiene saves a child, her body grows a dragon wing from her back.
  • Wolverine Claws: She has very long and sharp claws, causing her to hurt Bell when she's clinging to his arm. She lets Welf cut her claws to prevent this from happening again.

  • Blood Knight: He loves to fight.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: When Bell sends him flying with an Argonaut enhanced punch, he laughs, calls off the attack and asks to shake hands with Bell.
  • Lizard Folk: He's a Lizardman, a species of humanoid lizards.
  • Nice Guy: He's a honest and friendly Lizardman.
  • Scary Teeth: His teeth are all sharp and pointy.
  • Secret Test of Character: He puts Bell's party through one by having monsters target Wiene, just to see how they'd act. Because they were willing to put themselves in harm's way to protect the dragon girl, he extends the hand of friendship.

Rakia/Ares Familia

    Ares 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ares_danmachi.png
Voiced by: Chikahiro Kobayashi (JP), Scott Gibbs (EN)

The god of war and patron god of the Rakia Kingdom.

  • Adaptational Dumbass: In the original mythology as the God of War, Ares is a brilliant strategist and tactician. In this story, he's a total moron who thinks warfare is just throwing a bunch of troops at his problems until they go away, and can't comprehend why this doesn't work on Orario, where each adventurer is a One-Man Army by necessity, having to deal with the Dungeon. Possible justification for this. Ares' Illiadic presentation was well-known to have these particular qualities, with the strategic/tactical brilliance all going to Athena's instead.
  • Adaptational Wimp: In his original mythology, he's one of the top gods in terms of power and martial skill. Here, he's a joke who gets his sword broken the first time he draws it, and were it not for a convenient landslide, would likely have been "sent to heaven" by Ais's blade.
  • Bullying a Dragon: He keeps launching attacks on Orario, which has adventurers so powerful that, if any one of them knew where his base camp is, could simply waltz right in and completely annihilate his entire army with minimal effort. He can't comprehend that this is the reason his armies get constantly routed and sent home badly battered, if they even make it back at all.
  • Did Not Think This Through: His "brilliant" plan to take one of the gods of Orario hostage to force a surrender has many flaws, not the least of which is that this will provoke the familia of said god to retaliate with lethal force if said god is harmed in any way, presuming he even gets lucky and gets past said familia to grab the god in the first place. It's only sheer luck that he managed to grab Hestia when she was asked to grab some potatoes in the fields just outside Orario's gates.
  • Dumb Muscle: Does this ever apply. He's an absolute moron who can't understand why sending waves upon waves of poorly-trained knights and cavalry against Orario isn't getting him anywhere. Even among the gods he's known to have "100% muscles between his ears."
  • Fiery Redhead: He has orange hair and besides being stupid, passionate and impulsive are his other defining character traits.
  • I Reject Your Reality: He is so convinced that he's a brilliant military strategist and profound martial talent that he ignores all evidence to the contrary. In fact, the same village that nurses Hestia back to health easily intercepts and subdues him when comes to chase her down, despite being populated entirely by farmers and peasants who have no martial talent or training whatsoever, and he still flails around boasting of how great a warrior he is. The crown prince of Rakia can only sigh in resignation.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: His attempts at going into war with Orario and kidnapping Hestia are so pathetic that he comes off as a pitiful idiot instead of a threat.
  • Miles Gloriosus: Believes he's a brilliant military talent, and would be invincible on the battlefield, and loves to brag about it. In reality, he's an incompetent moron who can barely comprehend which is the business end of a sword.
  • No, You: Every time his retainers, including the crown prince of Rakia, calls his actions foolish, and him a total musclehead, he turns around and retorts "the man who calls others a musclehead is the actual musclehead".
  • Pointy-Haired Boss: He is so stupid, the king of Rakia obeying his orders causes said king to be known as "The Moron King".
  • Too Dumb to Live: He continuously launches attacks on Orario, where a single adventurer can, and does, routinely rout his entire army, can't comprehend why his troops come back battered and bloody, assuming they come back at all, and then goes on to really provoke Orario as a whole, by kidnapping one of the local gods to hold as a "godstage" to try and force a surrender, instead angering all the local gods, most of whom are way, way stronger and nastier than he is when provoked.
  • War God: Like the mythological Ares, he's a war god, but a really lame one at that.

Argonaut Story

    Argonaut 

Argonaut

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/danmemo_argonaut_2.png
A boisterous young lad with dreams of becoming a hero who can act as a beacon of hope to a world with none of it. He rushes off to the capital with his adopted sister Fina when he hears that the king plans on crowning whoever can pass the Ritual of Selection a hero. Unfortunately, he's foolhardy and utterly incompetent at fighting, forcing Fina to pick up the slack.
  • Always Save the Girl: His heroic instincts and skirt-chasing tendencies compel him to attempt this every time, even though he's only good as a decoy.
  • Always Someone Better: Even after gaining incredible power from forging a contract with Jupiter, Elmina still kicks his ass as the superior warrior.
  • Bling of War: For his debut as the hero, he pilfers a set of valuable armor from the castle's armory. The bling is intentional, as Argo knows that people will judge a book by its cover and will be more likely to listen to a person who is impressively dressed than someone who isn't. This proves essential in convincing others that he's the successor of "General Minos", as his armor, the lightning powers granted by Jupiter, and the "general's" bloody helmet sell his story to the citizens.
  • Casanova Wannabe: He hits on girls constantly, but they almost always rebuke his flirtations.
  • Childish Older Sibling: While Fina is polite, responsible, and a skilled mage, Argonaut is a shameless skirt-chaser who is useless in battle and never seems to be able to keep his mouth shut. As a result, Fina is usually the one to rein him in when he's acting foolish in public. This becomes increasingly downplayed as the story goes on, as while Fina is thinking solely about the present, Argonaut is thinking about the future and how best to make everyone smile.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: He's a shameless skirt-chaser and can't help but flirt with every pretty girl he meets, but he's disturbed when he discovers women who aren't smiling and never disrespects them.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome:
    • Throughout the hero selection ritual, the other challengers distract him by sending him after people who may or may not actually be in need of help. While he's aware that they're trying to impede him, he can't turn a blind eye in case someone is actually in trouble.
      Argo: Fina told me they were deceiving me, but... what if there really is someone in need of a helping hand? Then, I shall by the moronic and ignorant jester. I'd rather be a joke than leave someone behind!
    • This has been a habit of his for a while, and he acknowledges his inability to leave a crying person behind while convincing Fina to help Aria escape.
      Argo: It'll be just like old times, Fina. Perhaps I'll never learn to leave a crying person behind. It's my selfish desire to make them smile.
  • Classical Anti-Hero: He's pitifully weak in a brawl, comes from the sticks with no notable parentage, and struggles to get respect from others even as a Magnetic Hero.
  • Consummate Liar: He's an excellent storyteller and it's hard for people to tell if he's lying or just being a Cloudcuckoolander. This proves essential when he spins a story of him being "General Minos'" successor. Anyone present at the battlefield knows he's telling Blatant Lies, but they can't expose him without revealing the truth behind the general's identity.
  • Determinator: When he sets out to do something, nothing will make him back down. Not even a broken knee, not being branded a traitor to be captured, not even the threat of execution will deter him from trying to make a girl smile.
  • Distressed Dude: Due to his complete lack of combat ability, he's often the one in need of being rescued despite being the Leeroy Jenkins who rushes in first.
  • Dual Wielding: He's usually depicted wielding both the Radiant Sword of Thunder and the Magic Fire Sword (aka Minotan).
  • The Dulcinea Effect: If Argo sees a girl down in the dumps, he can't help but try to cheer them up, even if it means staring down the most fearsome assassin in the kingdom. Fina lampshades this, but he remains set on helping Aria no matter what.
    Fina: Why would you risk yourself for someone you just met...?
    Argo: Indeed, I know nothing about her background. But I know she has fled from her fate! A home without a smile - that's not the place she should go back to!
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Well, he was a Non-Action Guy prior to receiving the Radiant Sword of Thunder, but he's overwhelmingly strong against normal people with it in hand. Unfortunately, the backlash of using such a weapon ends up blinding him, and he fails to defeat the Minotaur on his own even with it and the Fire Magic Sword in-hand.
  • Famed in Story: Long after his death, his story became immortalized as the "Heroic Legend", an extremely popular fairy tale of tragedy turning into comedy. Argonaut himself became known as the "hero of the dawn" for uniting people once and for all against the monsters. The gods, entertained by Argo's story, decided to descend to the lower world, ending the ancient times and beginning the age of gods.
  • Fragile Speedster: The only thing he's good at is running away. A single punch from Fina sends him flying, and he generally spends most fights fleeing and ducking for cover. Even while carrying Aria in a bridal carry, he easily outpaces the royal guard. He gains outright Super Speed with the Radiant Sword of Thunder in-hand, easily cutting down an entire line of soldiers in the blink of an eye, surprising even himself.
    Argo: Mwahahahahahah! Do not underestimate the speed of Argonaut! He's as fast as a wild rabbit!
  • Guile Hero: Despite acting like he always has his head in the clouds, Argo is keenly perceptive and an excellent con artist. For instance, when thrust into a combat trial to determine the hero, he uses Fina as a distraction before simply running away until time ran out, leaving him and Fina as two of the last people standing. Later on, he makes a show of dancing and flirting with Aria in the street to draw massive crowds of jealous townsfolk that would impede the search parties coming after them.
  • Large Ham: He makes a show of everything he does and spontaneously bursts into laughter when he's feeling boastful or pleased.
  • Loser Protagonist: He starts out as a pathetically weak skirt-chaser who seems to be unable to divorce dreams from reality and constantly has to be saved by his sister, the only person to give him any kind of respect. He doesn't even deny it when others call him a failure or scum.
  • Magnetic Hero: Others repeatedly point out that one of his only strengths is to make others want to help him with his grandiose speeches and unerring optimism. Even the most cynical, nihilistic people find themselves swayed by his silver tongue, kindness, and ability to cling to hope at a time that had none. He needs it too, as without allies, he would have never accomplished a fraction of what he did.
  • The Needs of the Many: Defied. Aria points out that Argo could become a hero by turning her into the king, and that it would be the most logical thing to do: sacrificing one person for glory and the good of the many. Argo flatly disagrees and tells her that this is not the kind of hero he wants to be. Instead, he wants to be the person who saves one person who saves ten more.
    Argo: How can I call myself a hero if I can't make even one girl smile? I must try.
    Aria: Wrong... A hero will sacrifice one life for the greater good. That is the choice they must make for their glory.
    Argo: That is the one way of thinking, but that's not the kind of hero I want to be! I must save one life to save the next ten! "Sacrificing one life to save many" does not sit well with me. Something about it is... flawed. You may call me a loon! But I truly believe saving one life one day will save hundreds!
  • Non-Action Guy: He's pathetically weak to the point that Fina is able to floor him with a single punch. As a result, he's only good for rallying people together and acting as a decoy. This ends when he takes up the Radiant Sword of Thunder and the Magic Flame Sword.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity:
    • At least part of his foolishness is an act designed to stop conflict and get people to laugh. During the hero selection trial, he runs off into the distance screaming about how he's going to find the princess before anyone else, breaking up a fight between Yuri and Galmus in the process.
    • When backed into a corner, the reader gets to see more of Argonaut's inner thoughts, which has him meticulously analyzing the encirclement he, Fina, and Aria are trapped in and considers all possible outcomes before moving.
    • He acts unusually somber and serious after Fina gets captured to protect him and he has to be rescued by Orna and Crozzo. Orna lampshades this, prompting Argo to snap back to his usual, cheery self.
      Argo: Hmm? What's wrong? You look like you're mad at me.
      Orna: You have been acting different since you woke. What are you trying to pull? Where is the foolish clown, Argonaut? It... isn't like you.
      Argo: Mm... have I? Perhaps I have... Maybe it's the fatigue... A moment, please. I will return to my normal self in a second. Testing, testing! One, two!
      Orna: So you were not born a clown... It's more like a facade you act.
      Argo: Haha! I have no idea what you mean! I am, and always have been, the same old Argonaut! Now I'm back!
  • The Pollyanna: He's actually referred to as this in the story, with his inability to succumb to despair no matter how many setbacks he faces.
  • The Power of Love: Invokes this during his final duel with the Minotaur, claiming that there's nothing he can't do now that Princess Ariadne has declared that she loves him and wants to marry him. She denies the last part.
  • Rescue Romance: His efforts to rescue Princess Aria and get her to smile are what earn him her affections. In the end, it's she who rescues him from the minotaur, which he bitterly lampshades.
  • Riches to Rags: Orna insinuates that Argo is far too educated, eloquent, and idealistic to have been born in "nowheresville" like he insists, asking if he was the crown prince of a fallen country. He deflects the question rather than answering, saying that the tale of Argonaut needs no tragedies or misery, only comedy.
  • Reincarnation: He's all but said to be Bell's previous life.
  • Sad Clown: For all his comedic antics, it's implied that he's incredibly frustrated with his inability to save others directly, forcing him to resort to trickery and roundabout methods to help people and stop conflict. The story makes it increasingly clear over time that most of Argo's weirdness and stupidity is a carefully crafted act to hide this frustration and make others laugh. Crozzo also mentions that Argo has far too many responsibilities and burdens for any one man to hold, which is why he decides to help him out with whatever means necessary.
    Argo: Stay strong... I must be the clown for a little bit longer... A little bit longer...
  • Shout-Out: His attacking the windmills as "giants" is a not-so-subtle reference to the most famous scene in Don Quixote and serves as an Establishing Character Moment for him.
  • Skyward Scream: Combined with a Big "NO!" after he fails to stop the royal guard from taking Aria back to the castle.
  • The Social Expert: Despite his buffoonery, Argo is an incredibly gifted orator who is unmatched in his ability to get others to help him, turning people who mocked him as a failure into staunch allies through careful word choice and his inability to back down when people's lives are on the line. Galmus even accuses him of having a silver tongue.
  • Third-Person Person: He often refers to himself in the third-person while boasting to others, though he tends to bounce back and forth between pronouns.
    Argo: [to Aria] Don't worry about a thing, Princess! Just leave everything to this Argonaut! I will save you from your sorrow and fear!

    Fina 

Fina

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fina_danmachi.png
Voiced by: Juri Kimura

Argo's adopted little sister and a half-elf. Although she's physically the younger of the two, she's often the one keeping him in check and doing most of the fighting because of how weak he is.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: She often acts like this because of Argo's flirting and clownish antics, apologizing to others on his behalf.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: A half-elf.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Although her greatest asset is her ability to use magic, she isn't averse to hand-to-hand combat. A single punch from her is enough to leave Argo on the ground or send him flying across a room.
  • Pointy Ears: She has long, pointed ears due to being a half-elf.

    Yuri 

Yuri

Voiced by: Nobuhiko Okamoto

A werewolf who comes to participate in the Ritual of Selection.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He keeps a cold and aloof attitude towards everyone, but it's blatant to anyone who's gotten to know him that he cherishes friends and family.
  • Reincarnation: He's almost certainly Bete's previous life.

    Elmina 

Elmina

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/elmina_danmachi.png
Voiced by: Minami Takahashi

The strongest warrior of the kingdom and the king's personal assassin, she stakes everything she has to protect her little sister Orna, who doesn't reciprocate her feelings at all.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: Er, woman. Elmina is always wearing a veil on her face and the story takes a turn for the worse whenever she confronts Argo.
  • Multi-Melee Master: Although she wields a pair of daggers in combat, she's more than capable of beating her foes to death with her bare hands through her raw strength as an Amazon.
  • Reincarnation: She's heavily implied to be Tione's previous life.
  • Strong and Skilled: What makes her the most dangerous is that she's just as skilled as she is strong. Not only does her raw strength outclass even Argo's falna-backed abilities, but she's also been trained in constant fights to the death on Teleskyura. She can be stealthy, tricky, and overwhelmingly brutal all at once.
  • World's Best Warrior: Elmina is the strongest warrior of the kingdom with the exception of "General Minos". Even after Argo receives as falna from his contract with Jupiter, Elmina utterly thrashes him. Unsurprisingly, she's also the strongest Amazon of her generation.

    Galmus 

Galmus

Voiced by: Kenji Nomura

An honorable Dwarf warrior.

    Ariadne 

Ariadne

Voiced by: Saori Onishi

The crown princess of the kingdom and Lucrious' only daughter. The participants in the Ritual of Selection are ordered to find and bring her to the palace, but Aria doesn't want to be found.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Argo calls her "Aria" for short while trying to help her keep a low profile. It sticks when the story is finally written down by Orna, with all remembering her as "Princess Aria".
  • Damsel in Distress: She's the object of Argo's affections and the princess he always dreamed of rescuing. Her desperate desire to live a normal life unshackled by duty is what draws him to her. And yet, at the very end, she's the one to rescue him from the minotaur when his overuse of the Radiant Sword of Thunder blinds him. He bitterly lampshades this but accepts her help anyways.
  • Expy: Of the Ariadne of Greek myth, the maiden doomed to be fed to the minotaur until rescued by the hero Theseus.

    Ryulu 

Ryulu

Voiced by: Saori Hayami

A bard participating in the Ritual of Selection.
  • A-Cup Angst: Her violent response to having her chest called "flat as a piece of paper" is a not-so-subtle giveaway of her gender.
  • Ambiguous Gender: Subverted. When Argo asks whether Ryulu is a man or a woman, "they" laugh it off and say that "their" gender is shrouded in mystery. Argo is satisfied with that answer, as Ryulu's chest is as flat as a piece of paper. Ryulu responds by putting Argo in a painful arm lock, indicating that she's almost definitely a woman.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Light green hair and eyes.
  • Minored in Ass-Kicking: Ryulu insists she's merely a bard observing the events of the Ritual of Selection, but the fact that she's able to last through every single trial indicates that she's more than capable of handling herself.
  • Nice Hat: She wears a green fedora hat decorated by a feather.
  • Pointy Ears: She has the long and pointy ears that are characteristic of the elf race.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair flows down to just above her knees.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is green, much like her much implied Reincarnation, Ryu.

    Orna 

Orna

Voiced by: Rie Murakawa

The Kingdom's fortune-teller and a personal aide to the king. She's dismissive of Argonaut at first, expecting him to fail miserably, but soon finds herself drawn to the helpless young lad.
  • The Cynic: She's thoroughly cynical about the fate of the Kingdom and Argonaut's chances of becoming a hero.
  • Fortune Teller: She is able to "read the stars".
  • Replacement Goldfish: She spends most of the story acting as Elmina's sister despite thoroughly disliking her, and only near the climax is it revealed that Elmina has been using her as a replacement for her actual sister, whom she killed in cold-blood as part of the Amazons' bloodthirsty rituals.

    King of Lucrious 

King of Lucrious

The king of the kingdom.


  • No Name Given: He's only referred to as "the king" because there's no actual name revealed for him.

    Crozzo 

Crozzo

Voiced by: Yoshimasa Hosoya

The first Crozzo said to have been saved by a Spirit.
  • The Blacksmith: Due to receiving some of Urus' blood, Crozzo is able to create magic swords.
  • Cast from Lifespan: Overusing his ability to make magic swords causes his lifespan to become shorter.

    Jupiter 

A powerful Spirit who refers to himself as the "Great Spirit", he waited for ages in a shrine looking to contract with someone worthy of his power. Unfortunately, he sounds like a creepy old man and prefers hot babes to heroes. But he begrudgingly decides to lend Argonaut his power... whether Argo wanted it or not.


  • Dirty Old Man: He'd much prefer it if his contractor was a beautiful young girl rather than a boy like Argonaut. Regardless, he finds Argonaut to be just androgynous enough to be acceptable and lends him his power anyways.
  • Shock and Awe: True to his name, his sword form is imbued with lightning, crackling with it wherever it's swung.
  • Super Empowering: Anyone who holds him with be bestowed with physical abilities akin to an adventurer with a divine falna. Even when applied to the pathetically weak Argonaut, it's enough to make him move at lightning speed compared to everyone else and cut down armored knights in a single blow.

    Goibniu 

Goibniu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/goibniu_danmachi.png
Voiced by: Eizou Tsuda (JP), Jay Hickman (EN)

The God of the Goibniu Familia.
  • Elderly Immortal: The first amongst the gods seen to look rather aged. He still has well-toned muscles from working in the forge though.
  • Ultimate Blacksmith: He's derived from the smithing and hospitality god who was the personal blacksmith of Tuatha De Denann, the premier god of Celtic Mythology. His familia is smaller and not as well-known as Hephaestus's, but is full of high-level blacksmiths who create extremely powerful equipment to such an extent that it is the preferred choice for high-leveled members of Loki's familia. The familia's creations include Tiona's Urga (which had the property of being able to cut through nearly anything) and Aiz's Desperate (which would never chip, break, melt, or otherwise falter thanks to its Durandal property, but it could dull.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Surprisingly enough. All he wears is a pair of trousers and an apron wrapped around his waist.

    Demeter 

Demeter

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/demeter_danmachi.png
Voiced by: Harumi Sakurai (JP), Kelly Manison (EN), Vanessa Andrade (Latin America)

The Goddess of the Demeter Familia.
  • Gag Boobs: She has a massive pair of knockers that drives Loki insane.
  • Green Thumb: Same as her basis in Greek Mythology. Her Familia specializes in the creation of high-quality produce rather than fighting monsters.
  • Hot Goddess: She's incredibly curvaceous and is considered beautiful like the other goddesses.
  • Odd Friendship: She's good friends with Freya, the leader of the most powerful familia in Orario, despite their familia's drastically different methods and goals. In Memoria Freese, the fact that Freya forgot about a spa appointment they made centuries ago was enough for Demeter to concoct a highly convoluted plan to "kidnap" Freya just to tell her that You Are Not Alone.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: As the "Queen-Colonel", she disguises herself by wearing a pair of tacky sunglasses. Virtually everyone sees right through it, but she continues as if her identity was perfectly concealed.

    Zeus 

Zeus

Voiced by: Atsushi Ono (JP), Chris Gibson (EN), Jonatán Florit Rozas (Latin America)

The former god of the now defunct Zeus familia. After being forced out of Orario, he raised Bell as his grandson.
  • Dirty Old Man: All of Bell's perverted tendencies, and even the reason he initially wanted a harem, is because of Zeus teaching him those things.
  • Faking the Dead: Bell thinks he's dead, but Hermes reveals he faked his death for a currently unknown reason.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: He's very interested in the opposite sex, to the point of teaching Bell that all men should peek at women bathing in a hilariously over-the-top manner.
    Zeus: Bell, peeking is part of a man's romance.
    Bell: Grandpa?
    Zeus: RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROMANCE!
  • Spit Take: It happened off-screen, but Zeus spat out his tea upon learning Bell levelled up so quickly.
  • Walking Spoiler: The mere fact that Bell's grandfather is Zeus was a huge Wham Line when it was revealed, but it also made a lot of sense in retrospect, because what other person, god or not, would actively encourage their grandson to be a Harem Seeker?

    Levis 

Levis

Voiced by: Sayaka Ohara (JP), Carli Mosier (EN)

  • Undying Loyalty: She thinks of herself as nothing more than a tool of her master, following missions to her fullest extent.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Either Grade B or A depending on her outfit. She wears leotards and knee-high or thigh-high stockings.

    Mord Latro 

Mord Latro

Voiced by: Kouichi Souma (JP), Rob Mungle (EN), Aldo Lumbia (Latin America)

A Level 2 Adventurer who initially resented Bell's rise to fame but grows to respect him
  • Combat Pragmatist: He makes himself invisible during his fight with Bell to gain the advantage.
  • Invisibility Cloak: He can turn invisible with the magic item Hades Head.
  • Karmic Jackpot: Almost literally. Mord's respect for Bell and the Hestia Familia leads him to be one of two people who bet on the Hestia Familia in the War Game between them and the Apollo Familia. Mord is richly rewarded for his confidence in them when they win — the hefty amount of money he bet and the low odds set for the Hestia Familia's victory means he gets a very large payout.
  • The Resenter: Resented Bell's rapid advancement and even went so far as to attack him in the dungeon over it. He gets over it after Bell defeats the Black Goliath.
  • Rugged Scar: He has two long scars on his face, one on his left cheek, and the other across his forehead.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: He starts out as a jealous jerkass who eventually becomes a supporter of Bell.
