Characters from the Assassination Classroom Spin-Off, Koro-Sensei Quest!
There will be unmarked spoilers for Assassination Classroom on this page, since the premise of Koro-Q! assumes you are familiar with the main series' story and plot. You Have Been Warned!
Koro-sensei (殺せんせー Korosensē)
Also known as: Demon King, The Big Bad, Prince of the Fateful Eternal Wind (formerly)
Voiced by: Jun Fukuyama (Japanese), Sonny Strait (English)
The Demon King and teacher of Class E.
- Adaptational Heroism: This version starts out as a hero rather than a cold blooded assassin.
- Adaptational Villainy: By that same token, this version also chose to abandon his career of heroism in favor of becoming a Demon King simply out of boredom. As Koro-Sensei, he's also more prone to Comedic Sociopathy and is notably less loving and protective of his students than the main series version.
- Adaptation Species Change: He is a demon in this version rather than a mutated human.
- Subverted partly is that he is a mutated human but played straight in that his mutation is the result of demonic power rather than a lab experiment.
- Dark Is Not Evil: For a Demon King in dark clothing he does show some noble qualities in saving his students from harm.
- Demon Lords and Archdevils: He is the Demon King after all, but not the ones being described by Karasuma.
- Evil Overlord: What most of the monsters think of him, but he's not so much evil as he is hedonistic.
- Fallen Hero: Koro-Sensei this time around was a renowned hero, but after killing so many monsters, he lost his motivation and became the Demon King for kicks. Of course, he got bored real quick of that too, and now he's teaching would-be heroes to kill him, so he can find someone to give him a challenge.
- Maou the Demon King: His official role in the story.
- Super Speed: As it turns out, his Mach 20 speed in this continuity is the result of a bug. Said bug gives him a Speed stat of 99999, a number so big it spills out of the info box.
Commander Tadaomi Karasuma (烏間 惟臣 Karasuma Tadaomi)
Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita (Japanese), Chris Ryan (English)
- Dark Is Not Evil: His clothes and hair are dark, but is also one of the most heroic characters.
Irina Jelavić (イリーナ・イェラビッチ Irīna Yerabicchi)
Also known as: The Seductive Witch
Voiced by: Shizuka Itō (Japanese), Martha Harms (English)
- Hot Witch: Her whole shtick is being one.
Nagisa Shiota (潮田 渚 Shiota Nagisa)
Voiced by: Mai Fuchigami (Japanese), Lindsay Seidel (English)
Main protagonist and student of Class E.
- Awesome, but Impractical: His bug. Needs to defeat a board of monsters? Strength goes up to 99999, but gets a comically muscular body. Needs to save his class from imminent death? Rewinds time... all the way back to the beginning.
- Bishounen: Just look at the kid.
- Cursed with Awesome: His bug causes a random effect whenever he uses it. Usually useful with some unnecessarily comical side-effects.
- Distressed Dude: Pretty much a damsel in distress. He is literally kidnapped and dressed up as a princess by Takaoka.
- Dragged into Drag: Very, very often. Unfortunately for him, usually Played for Laughs.
- Eyes Are Mental: When switched with Karma his eyes stay shiny.
- "Freaky Friday" Flip: With Karma in episode 8. He doesn't seem to have any major problems with it until Karma decides to have some fun.
- Non-Action Guy: He usually stays out of the fights and isn't strong enough to resist Nakamura and Karma dressing him up as a princess. He does have his moments, though.
- Random Effect Spell: Nagisa's bug triggers when he decides to step forward with a strong will, and causes a random effect every time it activates. The first time it happens, it gives him 99999 Strength. The next causes Kaede to turn into a green clone of Koro-sensei. The last one sends the entire class and Koro-sensei back to Episode 1 as a New Game Plus.
- Useless Super Powers: Played with. His bug is one of the more useful ones in the class. That is a relative term, however.
Kaede Kayano (茅野 カエデ Kayano Kaede)
Voiced by: Aya Suzaki (Japanese), Monica Rial (English)
One of the protagonists and part of Class E.
- A-Cup Angst: Is very defensive about her small chest. When bodyswapped with Yada and finally having large breasts, she announces she is never going to swap back.
- Adaptational Heroism: Kayano never gains tentacles like she does in the original series, except for in a single gag that gets undone via Snap Back in the next episode.
- Damsel in Distress: Kayano eats cursed pudding and falls into a permanent coma unless a princess kisses her.
- Lighter and Softer: In this version, her sister never died, so she isn't as mentally unstable as her main-series counterpart.
- Fighter, Mage, Thief: Almost literally the Mage to Nagisa's Thief and Karma's Fighter.
Karma Akabane (赤羽 業 Akabane Karuma)
Also known as: The Red Devil
Voiced by: Nobuhiko Okamoto (Japanese), Austin Tindle (English)
One of the protagonists and part of the legendary Three Heroes.
- The Ace: Karma is one of the Three Heroes (him, Ritsu and Itona). He's shown to be skilled with swords, traps and magic. He is considerably stronger than the majority of Class E.
- Adaptational Heroism: Played with. This version is less violent than in the original series. In fact, he doesn't contribute much to the violence in most episodes.
- Butt-Monkey: There's a running gag where nearly whenever he talks he gets hit in the head by a wahsbin. It even happens when he isn't talking.
- Blessed with Suck: His bug's only usage gets him hit in the head, dropped into a pitfall trap or hit hard enough to send him flying.
- Dark Is Evil: Just look at his debut outfit. He's pretty much your typical villain.
- Deadpan Snarker: He is often sarcastic and contemptful. Subsequently, it activates his bug.
- Eyes Are Mental: As Nagisa, his eyes still lack the typical highlight.
- Evil Overlord: In his debut he has a whole dungeon plus a hoard of monsters all to himself.
- "Freaky Friday" Flip: In episode 8, the class swaps bodies. He and Nagisa switch places, so left with a feminine body, he takes the opportunity to wear girls-only bikini armor for the lulz.
- I Shall Taunt You: Every. Single. Line.
- Heel–Face Turn: In episode 2 he is introduced as pretty much an outright villain with no intention of joining Class E. After some words from Korosensei, he (reluctantly) joins the class.
- Laser-Guided Karma: His bug causes him to receive karma (heh) in the form of bad luck every time he belittles someone.
- Lighter and Softer: This Karma doesn't come with the emotional baggage he has in the original series and never tries to commit suicide.
- Meaningful Name: His name is Karma and his bug makes it so that every time he acts like a smug dick, which is always, he immediately gets taken down a peg. The English dub even lampshades this.
- Red Baron: Has the moniker "The Red Devil".
- Useless Super Powers: His bug is officially an 'irregularity with [his] luck stat'. Irregular is putting it mildly. If he acts cocky or contemptful, it immediately drops to the point that he gets randomly hit with objects. Even worse, probably ninety percent of his lines are him belittling someone.
- Villainous Fashion Sense: He is introduced wearing a purple, long-sleeved shirt with black pants, black and white shoes and a very sinister black cape.
Yuuma Isogai (磯貝 悠馬 Isogai Yūma)
Voiced by: Ryota Ohsaka (Japanese), Jerry Jewell (English)
- The Nudifier: Isogai's bug causes this to be inflicted on himself — he's physically unable to wear the back half of any armor or clothing, as they would simply vanish.
Hiroto Maehara (前原 陽斗 Maehara Hiroto)
Voiced by: Shintarō Asanuma (Japanese), Chris Burnett (English)
Yuzuki Fuwa (不破 優月 Fuwa Yuzuki)
Voiced by: Kana Ueda (Japanese), Kristi Kang (English)
Meg Kataoka (片岡 メグ Kataoka Megu)
Voiced by: Chie Matsuura (Japanese), Morgan Garrett (English)
Taiga Okajima (岡島 大河 Okajima Taiga)
Voiced by: Ryo Naitou (Japanese), Nick Haley (English)
- The Nudifier: Okajima's bug (which is only revealed in the final chapters of the manga) causes all armor and equipment to fly off of him — and anyone else he touches.
Autonomous Intelligence Magic Stone Tablet (自律思考魔道石板 Jiritsu Shikō Madō Sekiban)
Also known as: Ritsu (律 Ritsu), The Evolved Mage
Voiced by: Saki Fujita (Japanese), Bryn Apprill (English)
- Ability Mixing: Her bug allows her to combine two different spells to create a new unique one. She manages to catch Koro-sensei off guard and blow a finger off of him using this.
- Adaptation Species Change: From an AI built into a killing robot in the source material, to a magic stone tablet that may or may not have an actual person inside.
- Big Eater: For as awesome as her bug is, it also causes her to drain a lot of MP every time she uses spells, so she replenishes herself by eating a lot.
- Red Baron: Has the moniker "The Evolved Mage".
- A Wizard Did It: Played for Laughs. Ritsu is able to do things that seem to imply that there's a person actually inside of the tablet, such as eating rice, sprouting hands and legs, walking, and printing out paperwork. However, every time she's asked about how she did it, she just states that it's sorcery.
Itona Horibe (堀部 糸成 Horibe Itona)
Also known as: The Silver Berserker
Voiced by: Megumi Ogata (Japanese), Ricco Fajardo (English)
- Power Copying: In the manga, Itona's bug allows him to copy the special skills that are normally only accessible to monsters and non-humans. With it, he's capable of shedding his own skin like Koro-sensei and divide himself like slimes.
- Red Baron: Has the moniker "The Silver Berserker".
Tomohito Sugino (杉野 友人 Sugino Tomohito)
Voiced by: Yoshitaka Yamaya (Japanese), Clifford Chapin (English)
- Chekhov's Gag: His bug allows for setups like this. In Episode 3 of the anime, he practices casting some spells in a background scene, which didn't come into play until the final episode.
- Delayed Causality: Sugino's bug causes any attacks or spells he does to only take effect much, much later after it's applied. For example, when he uses a spell to raise his attack stat, it doesn't apply until the day after he uses it. The effect also goes both ways; when Class 3-E is stuck inside a poisonous marsh, he's the only one unaffected because the poison would affect him late.
Manami Okuda (奥田 真奈美 Okuda Manami)
Voiced by: Sayuri Yahagi (Japanese), Felecia Angelle (English)
- Magic Potion: Exaggerated; Okuda's bug allows her to create potions with effects that shouldn't be able to exist in-universe. One instance has her neutralizing a purification spring that incinerates evil, and another has her create a substance to Karma's ramen recipe that causes addiction.
Rio Nakamura (中村 莉桜 Nakamura Rio)
Voiced by: Manami Numakura (Japanese), Apphia Yu (English)
- Physical Attribute Swap: In the manga, Nakamura's bug allows her to do this. In Chapter 18, Koro-sensei asks her to transfer his "sealed" state (Koro-sensei in his Absolute Defense form) to Karasuma so that he can fight Takaoka himself.
Hinano Kurahashi (倉橋 陽菜乃 Kurahashi Hinano)
Voiced by: Hisako Kanemoto (Japanese), Kristen McGuire (English)
- Pest Controller: Kurahashi's bug causes her to inadvertently summon literal bugs (beetles and butterflies and such) every time she casts a spell, such as when she heals Terasaka's arm. Later chapters of the manga elaborates on and/or retcons this, and states that her bug actually alters the spawn rate of mobs in her vicinity.
Touka Yada (矢田 桃花 Yada Tōka)
Voiced by: Ayaka Suwa (Japanese), Michelle Rojas (English)
Rinka Hayami (速水 凛香 Hayami Rinka)
Voiced by: Shiho Kawaragi (Japanese), Jamie Marchi (English)
- Improbable Aiming Skills: Hayami's "hit rate" bug makes it so that no matter where she aims, her shots will always land on her targets. Problem is, she can't control how or when her bug activates or what constitutes as a "target", often causing her to accidentally hit her teammates.
Ryuunosuke Chiba (千葉 龍之介 Chiba Ryūnosuke)
Voiced by: Junji Majima (Japanese), Zach Charles Bolton (English)
- Improbable Aiming Skills: Thanks to his Super Senses bug, he's capable of scoping targets from far away and land shots perfectly.
- In the anime, his bug simply causes his shots to always land between his opponents' legs no matter how far he aims from, effectively giving his bug a similar effect to Hayami's.
- Super Senses: Zig-zagged. Chiba's "range" bug gives him incredible long-range vision when active, and allows him to see his targets through any obstacle. This allows him to always land shots from afar. Problem is, he becomes extremely farsighted and thus he can't make out anything that's directly in front of him.
Koutarou Takebayashi (竹林 孝太郎 Takebayashi Kōtarō)
Voiced by: Takahiro Mizushima (Japanese), Scott Hinze (English)
- A Day in the Limelight: Episode 11 of the anime focuses on him and his desire to leave E Class.
Ryouma Terasaka (寺坂 竜馬 Terasaka Ryōma)
Voiced by: Subaru Kimura (Japanese), Marcus D. Stimac (English)
Voiced by: Subaru Kimura (Japanese), Marcus D. Stimac (English)
An imposter Terasaka that was secretly swapped into Class E's party during the Trials of Tribulations.
- Ascended Extra: He was a one-bit gag character in the manga, but he has a recurring role in the anime, appearing all the way to the finale.
- Gratuitous English: He always speaks in perfect English.
Takuya Muramatsu (村松 拓哉 Muramatsu Takuya)
Voiced by: Kouki Harasawa (Japanese), Eric Cherry (English)
- A Day in the Limelight: Chapter 15 focuses on Muramatsu and his failing family ramen restaurant, and Class 3-E's attempts to make a legendary ramen recipe that can save the business.
Taisei Yoshida (吉田 大成 Yoshida Taisei)
Voiced by: Yoshiyuki Shimozuma (Japanese), Orion Pitts (English)
- Improbable Weapon User: Justified; Yoshida's bug only allows him to use toilet supplies as weapons, such as a dirty plunger.
Kirara Hazama (狭間 綺羅々 Hazama Kirara)
Voiced by: Fuko Saito (Japanese), Terri Doty (English)
Sumire Hara (原 寿美鈴 Hara Sumire)
Voiced by: Miho Hino (Japanese), Michelle Lee (English)
- Big Eater: In almost all of her scenes, she's eating. Justified in the manga because of her bug.
- Cast from Hit Points: Hara's bug gives her Super Strength, but at the cost of her HP always steadily decreasing. In order to restore her HP, she has to constantly eat.
Yukiko Kanzaki (神崎 有希子 Kanzaki Yukiko)
Voiced by: Satomi Sato (Japanese), Leah Clark (English)
- Comically Inept Healing: Somehow inverted. Her bug causes her healing magic to become too powerful, such that it causes ordinary humans to feel so good that they fall limp, and become addicted to the healing that they will hurt themselves in order to be healed again. In Koro-sensei's case, Kanzaki's healing will simply cause him to melt. Basically, it's healing magic Gone Horribly Right.
- Healing Hands: She's capable of using healing magic.
Hinata Okano (岡野 ひなた Okano Hinata)
Voiced by: Minami Tanaka (Japanese), Didi Duron (English)
Kouki Mimura (三村 航輝 Mimura Kōki)
Voiced by: Shinya Takahashi (Japanese), Joel McDonald (English)
- Ominous Visual Glitch: His bug invokes this, causing text and images near him, including printed ones, to glitch out and scramble when the bug is active.
Sousuke Sugaya (菅谷 創介 Sugaya Sōsuke)
Voiced by: Eiji Miyashita (Japanese), Kyle Phillips (English)
Justice Kimura (木村 正義 Kimura Jasutisu)
Also known as: Masayoshi Kimura
Voiced by: Shunsuke Kawabe (Japanese), Jean Luc Hester (English)
Gakuhou Asano (浅野 學峯 Asano Gakuhō)
Also known as: The Pope
Voiced by: Show Hayami (Japanese), Chris Rager (English)
- Adaptational Early Appearance: He appears in Episode 4 of the anime (which adapts Chapter 4 of the manga), even though in the manga he doesn't appear until Chapter 10. This is because he takes over the role of the King in observing Koro-sensei's behavior as the Big Bad.
- Adaptational Villainy: This version has no problem with placing Class E in physical harm.
- Battle Aura: Exaggerated. His presence emits an aura so powerful that it's capable of doing feats such as weakening evil, lifting objects, shattering glass, repelling water, and allowing him to fly.
Gakushuu Asano (浅野 学秀 Asano Gakushū)
Voiced by: Mamoru Miyano (Japanese), Micah Solusod (English)
Leader of the Big Five.
- An Ice Person: His specialty is in using ice magic, either to defeat foes or to sabotage his colleagues.
- Paladin: He and the Big Five work as these under the Pope.
Teppei Araki (荒木 鉄平 Araki Teppei)
Ren Sakakibara (榊原 蓮 Sakakibara Ren)
Natsuhiko Koyama (小山 夏彦 Koyama Natsuhiko)
Tomoya Seo (瀬尾 智也 Seo Tomoya)
Araki voiced by: Anri Katsu (Japanese), Josh Grelle (English)
Sakakibara voiced by: Kaito Ishikawa (Japanese), Justin Pate (English)

Seo voiced by: Shun Takagi (Japanese), David Trosko (English)
The other four members of the Big Five, working under Asano.
- Paladin: The Big Five work as these under the Pope.
Akira Takaoka (鷹岡 明 Takaoka Akira)
Voiced by: Kenta Miyake (Japanese), Justin Cook (English)
- Adaptational Dumbass: In the main series, he's a true threat. This version of him is more of an ineffectual blowhard.
- Adaptational Heroism: Downplayed, while he is still a bad guy, this incarnation never used poison to kill a student, but used a sleeping potion.
Smog the Noxious (毒煙のスモッグ Dokuen no Sumoggu)
Grip the Crusher (圧殺のグリップ Assatsu no Gurippu)
Gastro the Fiend (魔人のガストロ Majin no Gasutoro)
Smog voiced by: Atsushi Imaruoka (Japanese), Ben Phillips (English)
Grip voiced by: Katsuki Murase (Japanese), Christopher Sabat (English)
Gastro voiced by: Takehito Koyasu (Japanese), Mike McFarland (English)
The Fukuma Triple Threat, assassins hired as Takaoka's henchmen.
- Adaptational Species Change: They're regular humans in the anime, but are demons in the manga.
Shiro (シロ Shiro)
Also known as: Kotarou Yanagisawa (柳沢 誇太郎 Yanagisawa Kotarō)
Voiced by: Ryota Takeuchi as Shiro/Mitsuaki Madono as Yanagisawa (Japanese), J. Michael Tatum (English)The main antagonist of the series.
- Big Bad: Given his original incarnation is the main antagonist of the original series.
- Decomposite Character: Zig-zagged. In one skit in the anime, he appears alongside his unmasked true identity Kotarou Yanagisawa as a separate character; however, the two insist that they're really one and the same.
- Late-Arrival Spoiler: Koro-sensei already knew that he is Yanagisawa, which spoils the twist of the original series.
- Light Is Not Good: Like the original incarnation, he wears lots of white and has an evil nature.
Kunudon (くぬどん Kunudon)
Voiced by: Kurumi Mamiya (Japanese), Lindsay Seidel (English)
- Ascended Extra: He only appears very briefly in the manga's finale; however, in the anime, he ends up playing the part of all the monsters in the world.
Aguri Yukimura (雪村 あぐり Yukimura Aguri)
Voiced by: Ayako Kawasumi (Japanese), Whitney Rodgers (English)
A career consultant at the Temple of Trades. She often helps out dead-end heroes who are looking for a new outlook on life.
- Adaptational Early Appearance: Although she appears quite late in both the anime and the manga, the anime has her appear in a prominent role in Episode 11 of 12, while she doesn't appear in the manga until the very last page, as a princess from another dimension.
- Adaptational Job Change: Aguri Yukimura was a teacher and a scientist in the original continuity, but in the anime, she's a career consultant at the Temple of Trades, and assists the hero that would later become Koro-sensei in finding his new calling. In the manga, she's a princess from another dimension.
- Spared by the Adaptation: Her death in the main series is a major plot point that drives Koro-sensei to become a teacher, among other things; however, in both versions of Koro-Q!, she's fine and dandy.
The Reaper (死神 Shinigami)
Voiced by: Nobunaga Shimazaki (Japanese), Ian Sinclair (English)
