    Yuna 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/008_main.png
Voiced by: Maki Kawase (JP), Marissa Lenti (EN)

A 15-year-old girl who just wants to laze around and enjoy solo adventuring in her favorite VRMMO, Yuna's life is turned upside-down when she's gifted an amazingly powerful but embarrassing bear armor set, and shortly after finds herself transported into another world. Though she explicitly wants to live an unremarkable, comfortable life, her amazing power and desire to help others quickly make her a legend.


  • 24-Hour Armor: Except for some occasional betrayal (in Yuna's words), Yuna is always seen wearing the Bear Suit. It's simply too useful and risky to take off, as she's weak and vulnerable without it and the White Bear side has a restorative effect.
  • The Ace: The incredible stats of Yuna's Bear armor and its special bear-themed amplification give her power and strength that far surpasses most every other adventurer and monster in this world. She has also developed plenty of skills with business, trading, and a lot of gaming skills that came in handy when she branches out into becoming a cook, a children's book author, a merchant, and whatever other industry she needs to go into.
  • Accidental Pervert: During the School Festival Arc, Yuna fights two of the strongest knights in the kingdom. Due to her needing to borrow a uniform to participate, she accidentally shows off her underwear as she moves to dodge or parry.
  • A-Cup Angst: Yuna feels no shortage of misery when she sees women with much better-endowed chests than her own.
  • Afraid of Blood: Or grossed out by it, which is the main reason she absolutely refuses to harvest the monsters she kills.
  • Animal Motifs: Bears. Not only is her outfit comprised of a onesie-like bear hoodie, bear-paw shoes, and bear puppet gloves, along with her familiars being giant bears, but her outfit also invokes this by making her abilities stronger when she mentally shapes them into the form of bears.
  • Badass Adorable: Even without the Bear Armor, Yuna is cute, innocent looking, and many mistake her for being much younger than she actually is due to her short height and underdeveloped feminine features. She is still extremely powerful and dangerous to humans and monsters alike.
  • Badass on Paper: For those reading her exploits she is easily one of the most powerful adventurers to exist. If you meet her you'd just see a young girl in bear pajamas.
  • Bag of Spilling: When she was transported to the fantasy world, she lost all of her gear, items and levels, aside from the bear suit she was just given.
  • Berserk Button: Don't interrupt her while she's eating, don't interrupt her while she's gaming, and definitely don't interrupt her while she's sleeping.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Yuna is a friend of those who don't piss her off. Try hurting one of her friends or do something bad to women and innocents and you'll quickly and (likely violently) see the light.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Kicks all kinds of ass left, right, and center all while wearing what looks like bear pajamas.
  • Big Sister Instinct: For a shut-in that had neglectful parents all too happy to mooch off their daughter's stock market skills while they enjoyed themselves abroad, Yuna is a surprisingly effective, competent, and compassionate caretaker when it comes to young children, girls especially. She immediately comes to Fina's aid and goes above and beyond to help her with her problems, she entertains Noire's requests to play with her bears and hang out in general, she creates a picture book for Princess Flora so she'd have something age-appropriate to read, and she even gets into a fight with Cliff Foschurose, Lord of the city of Crimonia, all for the sake of an orphanage full of kids.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Despite her various talents, Yuna would rather laze around on her bed all day rather than do something actually productive with her time.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Yuna is fond of this, though this may also help with the "Amplifies the power if it's Bear-themed." aspect to her armor. Some commonly used ones include Air Cutter, Kuma Punch, and Bear Wall.
  • Clothes Make the Superman: All of Yuna's power comes from her bear set and all its many enchantments. Without it, she's basically helpless.
  • The Dreaded: Her power and abilities are on a level so above every other adventurer and monster, it is to the point where many call her the Apex Predator of Apex Predators.
  • Elemental Powers: Yuna has most of the sets.
    • Blow You Away: Most frequently with Air Cutter, a skill that summons strong gusts of wind that can slice through most materials and lift large monsters several hundred meters into the air, but Yuna also passively uses them to increase her speed.
    • Dishing Out Dirt: Yuna frequently manipulates earth for construction purposes, like walling in enemies with Bear Wall, creating bases, and of course, her house.
    • An Ice Person: Yuna uses icicles to fire as projectiles, slow down her opponents, or cool down otherwise unbearably hot areas.
    • Making a Splash: She's capable of producing large amounts of water out of the blue and is able to manipulate it and give it form without a solid container. Applications include drowning monsters to preserve their valuable hides, water for bathing, and dumping entire water tank's worth of it on violent, murderous criminals and rapists as you transport them back to the city.
    • Shock and Awe: When she finds herself fighting physically-and-magically resistant iron golems, she learns how to use lightning magic to take advantage of their metallic nature, frying their magic gem cores without damaging the rest of the body. Due to the unpredictable nature of lightning when fired, she usually charges her Black Bear Puppet then does a palm strike to discharge it directly into her target.
    • Playing with Fire: When Yuna fights a Black Viper that has nigh-impenetrable scales, she decides to roast it from the inside by shooting Bear Fire into its mouth. Earlier on, she set a massive fire in a cave and left the goblins inside to either suffocate to death or die from overheating.
  • Embarrassing but Empowering Outfit: Yuna laments that the armor set would be perfect if it wasn't so ridiculous. She eventually gets over it and people come to fear her for her achievements and overwhelming power anyway.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Most strangers and other adventures only ever call Yuna "Bear", "Ms. Bear" or some other equivalent. Justified as this is both her officially registered "Adventurer Class", the suit is such an obvious and iconic feature of hers, and most other adventurers are also referred to by their classes.
  • Experienced Protagonist: Thanks to her absurdly long amounts of time playing the VRMMO that her current world is based on, Yuna understands the magic system, the monsters, and how best to apply them with her bear armor's rather unique advantages.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: A downplayed example since most of her design is symmetrical, but the gloves and shoes of her outfit are vertically split halfway colorwise, with the right side being black and the left side being white.
  • Friendless Background: She was perfectly fine with being a shut-in and a "solo" adventurer until she received the Bear Suit and ended up transported to another world by a mysterious power.
  • Friend to All Children: Is quick to help out, comfort, and/or befriend any child she comes across and showcases a strong Big Sister Instinct through the story.
    Yuna: Children should be happy.
  • Genius Bruiser: Given the quick glimpse we've seen of her other life, Yuna is a very intelligent stock trader who is shown to be successful enough in this infamously cutthroat field to have millions upon millions of dollars in her bank account. In the series itself, Yuna has proven strong enough to single-handily take down a 50-meter tall Black Viper with Nigh-Invulnerability and a 100-strong army of goblins plus their giant-sized King while being cunning enough to exploit a weakness or demonstrate creative use of her powers and the environment around her.
  • Good Is Not Soft: As kind, generous, and compassionate Yuna is (to young children and orphans especially), she's not afraid to be outright brutal to monster threats, bandits, and corrupt nobles alike. When she captures an entire company of bandits who're stated to have engaged in Rape, Pillage, and Burn, she refuses to give them food (as they won't die for a few weeks without it), drops gigantic deluges of water for them to drink and shut them up, and keeps them in an impenetrable, open-air cage.
  • Hammerspace: Yuna's White Bear Glove has a "Bear Box" that functions like this, capable of storing anything that she needs including her vast funds, monster carcasses, and even her house so she's never without comfortable sleeping arrangements whilst traveling. It also conveniently stops rotting and decay and seems to have no upper limit for what she can put in. Both gloves can also be used to summon and stow away her familiars.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Her goal is to live an unremarkable, comfortable life by herself but her power quickly catapults her into all manner of misadventures.
  • It's All About Me: Heavily downplayed. She is not entirely selfish but sometimes, she has these moments like when she refuses to honor a direct request from a noble, Lord Cliff Foschurose, as she doesn't want to interact with what she assumes are corrupt nobles.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Yuna only does things that interest her and flat out refuses to do things she finds gross or tiresome, but she will help people she cares for, innocents in need, and especially children. She's also not entirely unaware of her selfishness, being embarrassed by the praise of the townsfolk of Mireera as she only slew the Kraken, defeated the blockading bandits, and built a tunnel to Crimonia for the sake of soy sauce, white rice, and other Japanese-like ingredients to eat while they think she's a selfless hero.
  • Laborious Laziness: Most of the grand actions she does for the city and the world at large are simply to make getting things she wants easier, such as having the orphanage run a chicken coop so she can have easier access to eggs and egg-based products, like Japanese-style pudding. The fact they are able to use the funds to be self-sufficient is an added bonus. Defeat 10,000 monsters and in doing so save the kingdom? She didn't want to backtrack and take the long way. There are times when she does feel shame about this, such as when the seaside town of Mireera praises her like a selfless hero for defeating the Kraken when the sole reason she bothered was to get rice, soy sauce, and other Japanese-like ingredients. She even went so far as to build a tunnel through a Mountain just to have an easier access to the port town, though she was called out for her causing major changes to the landscape for her own selfishness.
  • Last-Second Word Swap: When Telumina asks her why she will be the supervisor for the Orphanage Chicken Coop, Yuna was about to reply handleing the day to day aspects would be tiresome, only to cover it up by claiming she would be perfect for the role. Telumina calls her out on the word swap.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Even disregarding her sheer magical might, her personal physical prowess is just as insane thanks to the bear suit. She's tough enough to shrug off blows from the most powerful monsters, fast enough to be near-invisible while moving, and strong enough that she can knock a decently strong and tough regular adventurer several feet away with a light effortless jab, or utterly brutalize them with Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs.
  • Limited Wardrobe:
    • Yuna almost always wears her bear outfit plus underwear, the only thing ever changing being whether the black or the white side is facing out. This is justified, though, as it's the source of all her amazing powers, it's much more convenient to always have it on when trouble inevitably comes finding her, and it has a special enchantment that makes it never get dirty or need washing, which saves a lot of time and discomfort.
    • The only exceptions to this are a dress, a school uniform from the royal academy, and a bikini. Even then, each of those specific outfits are the only other clothing she ever bothers to wear, and only in their required situations.
  • Loyal Phlebotinum: Her magical bear suit is completely subservient to her whims, with her being the only person that can use its powers. It will even act like a Clingy Costume whenever she tries to give it away or somebody tries to take it, due to it being marked as "non-transferrable" in its stats.
  • Magic Knight: Before receiving the bear armor set and being transported to another world, this was Yuna's class, specifically chosen so she could comfortably adventure solo. It was useless in parties being a Master of None, not that Yuna had any intention of attempting group content.
  • Master of None: Gameplay-wise, Yuna was quite the generalist, branching into physical and magical attacks and support skills to ensure she could comfortably adventure alone without needing to rely on others.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: "Bloody Bear". By the time Yuna reaches the capital, quite a number of adventurers know well enough not to mess with the girl in the ridiculous bear outfit, not that that stops people from messing with her still.
  • No-Sell: Except for occasional knockbacks, as long as Yuna's got the Bear Armor on everything will just bounce off of her.
  • Not So Above It All: She likes to think of herself as more mature for her age, but admits that she does childish things from time to time.
  • Obsessed with Food: The main reason behind a lot of her heroic actions is to get easier access to food or ingredients she wants. Interrupting her when she's eating is a Berserk Button of hers. She also takes pride in her Japanese ways of doing whatever it takes when it comes to food.
  • Older Than They Look: Thanks to her short height and her Bear Armor being so baggy it hides her figure (though she quietly admits she doesn't have much of one), most people mistake her for being much younger than her actual age, 15. The likes of Shia Foschurose and her party mistook her as 13 as the Guild won't accept anyone younger.
  • One-Man Army: In this case, one female-bear army. She beats a horde of monsters composed of wolves, orcs, wyverns, and a worm which is considered as a disaster-level type of monster where tons of casualties are par for the course. Oh, did we mention the Kraken? Though to be fair that one took planning and a very long exhausting fight.
  • Parental Neglect: Yuna is shown wiring her parents money that she earned through the stock market and assumes they're using it to continue living a hedonistic lifestyle abroad before returning to her game.
  • Power Fist: While it's a particularly adorable and strange example, Yuna's bear puppet gloves function as this. Just by having them on, a simple forward jab becomes a devastatingly effective Kuma Punch; a single one can knock-out a fully-grown man and adventurer, a handful can cause bruises and lumps so bad it's temporarily disfiguring.
  • Red Baron: Bear-chan, Bear-sis, Bear-missy, Bloody Bear. As Yuna's fame and infamy grows so do the ways people refer to her.
  • Ridiculously Fast Construction: One of Yuna's applications for her Earth magic is to construct whatever buildings and fortifications she requires, such as barricades to seal monsters in a cave to their fiery doom, a shed to safely take a nap while waiting for Rurina to finish harvesting the magical gems from a hundred regular goblins, and of course, her bear-themed house and the various facilities and equipment she creates like a pizza oven or a chicken coop. This takes her all of a few seconds to construct elaborate multi-room, multi-story buildings and she can just as easily collapse them back into the dirt with the word "Release".
  • Shaping Your Attacks: Along with being able to fire off magic in a straightforward manner, she's also capable of mentally influencing her magic to take specific shapes. The main purpose of this is having her shape the magic to look like bears, as doing so amplifies their effects.
  • Strong and Skilled: Her Bear Suit grants Yuna an incredible amount of raw strength while her experience as a gamer gives her the skills to properly apply it in almost any situation she finds herself in.
  • Think Nothing of It: She tries to get people to do this after she does some grand action as she just wants to live in peace, but it usually doesn't work and the legend of the Bloody Bear spreads wide and grows even more unbelievable.
  • Troll: She constantly tricked Rurina into calling her teammate Deborane a goblin.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: She delivers a rather harsh one to Cliff regarding the defunding of Crimonia's orphanage, especially with his appearing to be a Reasonable Authority Figure earlier.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair color is a dark green.

Kumakyuu
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/417094.jpg
Kumayuru
Voiced by: Yūko Kurose (Kumakyuu) and Eri Miyajima (Kumayuru) (JP), Lindsay Seidel (both) (EN)

Yuna's familiars, two giant bears summoned from Yuna's bear gloves. Kumyakyuu is white, Kumayuru is black.


  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: They have a much cuter and more cartoony appearance than regular bears, and both of them wears bowtie collars around their necks that match their secondary colors.
  • Bears Are Bad News: For monsters and Yuna's human enemies, these two are her dangerously effective and vicious pets.
  • Beary Friendly: For Yuna and her closest allies/friends, these two are basically friendly and cuddly giant teddy bears, along with being highly protective bodyguards.
  • Familiar: They serve as Yuna's loyal, magical, and very fluffy and cuddly companions.
  • Fusion Dance: Are able to merge together to become a panda bear.
  • Gentle Giant: They may be taller than even the biggest adventurers while standing on all fours, but they're actually complete sweeties who are willing to let anybody ride on or play with them so long as they mean no harm to Yuna. Conversely, they're also very protective of both Yuna and anybody she has a good relationship with against whoever and whatever might desire to threaten them.
  • Hammerspace: Similar to Pokémon, they can be stored in Yuna's gloves.
  • Horse of a Different Color: Yuna and several other characters ride them much like you would horses. They also conveniently come with an enchantment that prevents the rider from falling off no matter what you do.
  • Jealous Pet: Both prefer Yuna to ride them, and anytime she sticks with one for an especially long time the other will pout about it. As a result, she tries to alternate between them so that she doesn't neglect either one.
  • Killer Rabbit: Yes, they are adorable. Yes, they are also highly destructive and efficient fighters with magic of their own. If you're a tiger wolf and Yuna wants your pelt undamaged, she and the bears can drown you with water magic.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Along with being opposite colors and having differently shaped eyes, Kumakyuu is usually shy whereas Kumayuru is braver.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: While they may be massive in size, their fluffy and cuddly appearances combined with their friendly and protective personalities make them incredibly adorable.
  • Sizeshifter: Kumakyuu and Kumayuru can change from their cub and adult forms at Yuna's command. Aside from being adorable, this lets them stay with her at inns to act as guard animals.

    Fina 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fina_full_body_anime.png
Voiced by: Azumi Waki (JP), Xanthe Huynh (EN)

A young girl and employee of the Guild who quickly becomes Yuna's closest companion and one of her first employees.


  • Heroic BSoD: Played for Laughs: Whenever Yuna brings her along to visit higher-class locations to interact with nobles and royals, she gets increasingly nervous and hesitant out of fear towards insulting them, with a visit to the royal castle causing her brain to become mushy, and getting invited to princess Flora's bedroom causing her to freeze up like a statue, requiring Eleonore to carry her to the room and lean her against a wall.
  • Odd Friendship: Her closest friend is Noire, a rich noble girl who seems snobby, but is actually quite sweet and personable once Fina gets to know her.
  • Organ Drops: As monster carcasses in this world don't conveniently, cleanly break apart into usable materials, it's Fina's job to butcher them for Yuna. This is especially prominent as Yuna absolutely refuses to literally bloody her hands with the task.
  • Penny Among Diamonds: Following her forming a close friendship with Yuna, who is herself quite well off financially, Fina, a girl who's about as lower-class as you can get without begging for food on the street, winds up thrust into repeatedly interacting with people far above her station both financially and status-wise. It's particularly notable when it comes to her Odd Friendship with Noire, as despite their closeness they're practically polar opposites in terms of societal position. She never quite gets used to it, resulting in frequent comedic Heroic BSODs
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She looks like a much younger version of her mother with shorter hair, with similar hair color, eye color, and complexion. Coincidentally, she also shares many traits with her step-father, Gentz.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Fina goes from a helpless young girl struggling to make ends meet to a capable companion who helps Yuna navigate the complex and nuanced world of nobles, despite being of common birth.

    Noire Foschurose 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/noirefoschurosefull3046829.png
Voiced by: Rina Hidaka (JP), Amanda Lee (EN)

The youngest daughter of House Fuschorose, she has an obsession with all things Yuna and her bears.


  • Affectionate Nickname: "Noa" or "Noa-chan", usually used by her mother, her close friend Misana, and Fina.
  • Drama Queen: She has a habit of acting overly dramatic about things whenever she's shocked or surprised.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's a complete sweetheart of a royal girl, and she has bright blonde Rapunzel Hair.
  • Non-Indicative Name: The word "noir" is French for "black", yet she's white as the driven snow.
  • Not a Morning Person: Due to her pampered lifestyle, she's used to sleeping until around noon, so when she comes along with Yuna to the capital and is made to wake up at the crack of dawn during their camping break, she's still quite groggy. She's even worse about it when trying to wake up early on her own, as even if she has promised plans for things she wants to do, she'll still end up oversleeping until around noon.
  • Odd Friendship: Despite her being a proud and somewhat haughty noble, she considers her truest friend to be Fina, a lower-class commoner, as the two share many interests, chief of all their admiration towards Yuna.
  • Spoiled Sweet: She is a sweet and friendly girl who nonetheless is quite used to a life of extreme luxury and getting what she wants. She's more than a little upset to realize that she can't even borrow Yuna's iconic bear armor set, it's "Non-Transferrable" and magically stuck to her if someone tries to rob it.

Fina's Family

Fina's family and their friends, composed of her mother, Tirumina, her younger sister Shuri, and their "Uncle" turned stepfather Gentz.

    In General 
  • Disappeared Dad: Roy died shortly after Shuri was born. The reasons are unexplained.
  • Happily Married: Roy and Telumina had a loving and happy marriage until his untimely demise. She eventually marries Gentz and he becomes a happy, loving step-father and second husband.
  • Retired Badass: Tirumina/Telumina, Gentz, and Roy were once an adventuring trio. They were a mage and two swordsmen, respectively.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Tirumina/Telumina and her daughters share near identical features. Coincidentally, they also happen to resemble their step-father Gentz to a strong degree.

    Tirumina/Telumina 
Voiced by: Yume Miyamoto (JP), Molly Searcy (EN)
Fina's mother. Her husband, Roy, died some time after Shuri's birth, leaving her a widow with two young girls to take care of. The stress and the effort seemed to have taken their toll on her as she's gravely ill at the start of the series, but Yuna manages to cure her and proceeds to become her best employee for all her growing businesses.
  • Almighty Janitor: She is Yuna's secretary and manager for all her various business ventures. No matter the industry, no matter how large the businesses get, and how much more number crunching and administrative work is required, she always finds a way to handle it.
  • Ill Girl: She spends most of the beginning of the series gravely ill from some unknown condition. Fina is constantly working butchering jobs and collecting herbs around the forest in an attempt to treat it, to little avail.
  • Motherly Side Plait: Her hair is tied in this fashion to emphasize her motherly nature. Flashbacks reveal she had a longer, neater, braided style when she was still an adventurer.
  • Squishy Wizard: She used to be a mage for her party, using a magic staff that doubled as a walking stick.

    Shuri 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shuri_full_body_anime.png
Voiced by: Miyu Tomita (JP), Jalitza Delgado (EN)
Fina's little sister.
  • Constantly Curious: While looking for the Snow Flower, she constantly looks at anything and everything around her with little regard for her safety. She even hisses right back at a young snake she mistook for a juvenile Black Viper.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She has small pigtails emphasizing her innocent nature.

    Gentz 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/417089.jpg
Voiced by: Satoshi Tsuruoka (JP), Tyson Rinehart (EN)
A family friend and an employee at the Adventurer's Guild. He works at the disassembly counter. He eventually marries Telumina
  • The Big Guy: In his, Telumina, and Roy's old party, he wielded a large, two-handed sword.
  • The Mentor: He was the one that taught Fina how to properly dismantle monsters for usable parts and materials.
  • Mistaken for Pedophile: Yuna at first thought he was after Fina. That misunderstanding is cleared up very quickly, whether by Fina (manga) or Gentz himself (anime), mostly by them blurting out that Gentz is interested in her mother instead.
  • Organ Drops: His job is to disassemble monster carcasses into usable parts.
  • Romancing the Widow: After Roy's death, he intended to become Tirumina's second husband and acted as a surrogate father-figure for Fina and Shuri, buying her medicinal herbs and giving her monster dismantling jobs to help support the family. He succeeds in episode 6.

House Foschurose

    In General 
  • Happily Married: Though currently living separately due to their duties and their eldest daughter's education, Count and Countess Foschurose are in a happy union with two beloved children.
  • Good Parents: Count and Countess Foschurose love their children dearly and the feeling is very clearly mutual.
  • Missing Mom: Invoked, Subverted, then Played for Laughs with Countess Eleonore Foschurose, Count Cliff's husband and Noire and Shia's mother. Up until the point that Yuna travels to the capital for the first time as part of an Escort Mission, Countess Foschurose is never seen nor heard about, so Yuna assumed that she ran away or divorced Lord Cliff. It turns out she's just working in the capital instead of in Crimonia and Lord Foschurose is not happy about the accusation.
  • My Significance Sense Is Tingling: Yuna suspects that the women of the Foschurose family may have this skill as Noire, Eleonore, and Shia keep showing whenever Yuna does something important or ground-breaking like trying to negotiate a better deal with the Commerce Guild in the capital or her introducing junk food to the world.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something:
    • Yuna initially thinks that Count Cliff Foschurose is just a lazy, corrupt, and selfish noble out to abuse and exploit the people, but he turns out to be a Reasonable Authority Figure who takes it deadly seriously when a corrupt administrator of his makes it seem like he's a cruel lord who would cut-off funds from the city's orphanage and public works as well. He's also a wonderful, loving father to his two children.
    • Countess Eleonore Foschurose is this Up to Eleven. After she casually describes her numerous duties across all sectors of government and with plenty of time and energy to spare to casually drop-in on Yuna's antics, Yuna realizes she basically runs the kingdom.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Noire looks very similar to her mother, Eleonore, especially with their similar hairstyles.

    Count Cliff Foschurose 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/417088.jpg
Voiced by: Koji Yusa (JP), Y. Chang (EN)
The patriarch of the House and the lord of Crimonia. He is the picture of a proper noble being serious, strict, and with iron-clad morals, though his stern and authoritative demeanor oftentimes scares people when he doesn't intend to.
  • The Comically Serious: As befitting a Feudal Lord of such a large and prosperous city like Crimonia, he always maintains a stately, serious, and dignified manner, even when he's asking if he can ride Yuna's bears like his young daughter, Noire. There's a lot of comedy where his stiff and proper demeanor keeps intimidating and scaring people despite his desire to appear friendly and approachable.
  • Mistaken for Pedophile: When Yuna first meets Eleonore, seeing her youthful 25-to-28-year-old-looking appearance and hearing about her having a 15-year-old child makes Yuna think Cliff married and impregnated Eleonore when she was 10 or 13, unaware at the time of her being currently 35 and thus she was 20 when she and Cliff had Shia.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He's more than willing to listen to Yuna's complaints about the sudden disappearance of the orphanage's subsidies and doesn't take it lightly when he realizes that it and many other public works' budgets have been embezzled for so long. When he realizes the full extent of the corruption, his wrath is swift, decisive, and bloody.
  • Sheep in Sheep's Clothing: He puts on the appearance of a well-meaning lord, and has the personality of a responsible, caring, and trustworthy person. However, Yuna later finds out that the town had stopped funding orphanages because they considered keeping orphans alive and fed a waste, something which made Yuna believe that Cliff's kind personality was just a sham. Eventually, though, it turns out that he was completely genuine in his efforts to support the town's orphans, and that it was instead his underlings embezzling the funds behind his back. When he finds out about the corruption, he does his best to rectify the problem.
  • Workaholic: Not by choice but necessity. Yuna just keeps causing so much trouble, inventing new items, and starting or expanding her businesses in Crimonia that Cliff can barely keep up with the necessary paperwork.

    Countess Eleonore Foschurose 
Voiced by: Yuiko Tatsumi
Count Cliff's wife. She is sweet, kind, and blessed with superhuman skills, working as an administrator and whatever other jobs are required of her in the capital ranging from business, law, the military, and every other facet of governance. Though she wishes to retire to Crimonia to be with her husband and youngest daughter, Noire, the King and the rest of his court begging her to stay keeps her on the job.
  • 100% Adoration Rating: Countess Eleonore Foschurose is beloved by all her subordinates and fellow nobles, both because she's a kind, considerate, and sweet woman and because she's crazily talented and efficient, basically running the kingdom by herself. Security, taxes, business... whatever it is that needs doing, she's got it.
  • Absolute Cleavage: Despite being a married woman, a prominent Countess and civil servant in the capital, and a mother of two young children, she dresses in a very revealing dress that exposes her shoulders and a great deal of her cleavage and ample bosom. Considering the time period and the cultural norms that the series is basing itself off on, this would be a scandalous look, to say the least. Downplayed in the anime where her cleavage is covered up with a diamond of cloth but the exposed shoulders and upper back are still quite daring, even by today's standards.
  • The Ace: As Yuna points out when she casually lists off all her "chores" (which she accomplishes without sweat and with plenty of free-time afterward), she basically runs the country to the point where the King, the Prime Minister, and everyone else in the castle refuses to let her retire to be with her husband in Crimonia. This is likely because the kingdom is going to collapse without her holding it up—not for everyone else being incompetent, mind you, but because they likely haven't recruited the army of employees needed to replace her.
  • Of Corsets Sexy: She wears a corset that laces from the front. It emphasizes her already impressive bust size, generous figure, and a rather provocative style of dress.
  • Eyes Always Shut: She always has her eyes closed, like most other mothers and motherly figures in Japanese media.
  • Married to the Job: It's not that she doesn't want to retire and be with her family, it's just that the King, the Prime Minister, and countless other high-ranking nobles are begging her to stay in her position as an all-around administrator, she just does too many jobs too well.
  • Mum Looks Like a Sister: Despite one of her daughters being 15 and her actual age being 35, she looks youthful enough that most people, Yuna included, would think she's only around 28 at the oldest, seeming more like an older sister or cousin than a mother.
  • Mundane Utility: She is the kingdom's top adviser, with access to pretty much every aspect of governance, and is so well-respected and trusted that no one will question her word. She uses this incredible power and authority to get the guards to tell her when her daughter has come home from the Medieval Fantasy equivalent of a school field trip/practical test, by saying it was an "S-rank" priority.
  • The Reliable One: In Yuna's words, she basically runs the kingdom by herself, doing whatever needs to be done from overseeing the various territories, the training of the knights, organization of soldiers, and coordination with the Adventurer's Guild for dangerous missions... she can do it without sweat and barely any time at all.

    Shia Foschurose 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kuma_kuma_kuma_bear_shia_foschurose_cosplay_costume.jpg
Voiced by: Inori Minase (JP)
House Foschurose's eldest daughter. She is currently the top student at the noble's academy in the capital.
  • The Ace: Of the noble's academy in the capital. She's still vastly outclassed by Yuna but then again, so is basically everyone and everything else.
  • Always Someone Better: She is The Ace of the noble's academy in the capital and thinks very highly of herself...until Yuna, who is the same age as her, consistently beats her down with barely any effort.
  • Girlish Pigtails: To emphasize her immature and bratty personality, her hair is styled like this.
  • Ojou Ringlets: Her pigtails are styled in large drills, as befitting her status and the wealth and power of her family.
  • Not So Above It All: She likes to see herself as far more mature and serious for her age and especially compared to her 10-year-old younger sister, Noire, and her frequently immature-acting mother, Eleonore. She frequently fails in a matter of moments, especially when Yuna's food is involved.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Even tied up in pigtails with a section of them in place of ribbons, her hair reaches past her waist and almost to her knees.
  • Sore Loser: She is this in her series of 1v1 duels with Yuna. She keeps losing in seconds, demanding a rematch and ever-changing conditions, all to the same result. It takes her mother, Eleonore, calling it off and pointing out that Yuna was holding back her power to just try to match Shia's relatively impressive skills that she concedes defeat.

The Adventurer's Guild

Officials and Staff

    Atora 
Voiced by: Kana Asumi
The Guild Master of the Mireera branch, an independent seaside town. She is a hard-working official who sincerely cares about the well-being of the adventurers and civilians under her care but when Yuna first arrives, the attacks by the Kraken at sea and bandits on land are pushing her to the breaking point.
  • Absolute Cleavage: Her clothes show off a scandalous amount of her cleavage and her impressive bust size.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Unlike everyone else, she's the only character who has dark skin. Her nationality is unknown but it can be inferred that she's not native to the region.
  • Beauty Mark: She has one on the left side of her face (right side of the viewer), below her mouth.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Parodied. She's shown drinking what looks to be whiskey or some other malt liquor from a shot glass with ice and behind the counter are shelves full of what look like liquor bottles. It's quickly revealed that she's actually drinking bitter tea meant to stave off exhaustion from how long she and the staff have been forced to work without relief.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Due to her skimpy attire, Yuna mistakes her for a sex worker and the Guild branch for a brothel. She also has no shortage of shots specifically made to emphasize her good looks, generous proportions, and how little skin her clothes cover.
  • Stripperific: In stark contrast to the realistic armor seen on most of the adventurers so far, she has extremely skimpy clothing that leaves much of her skin exposed and caused Yuna to mistake her for a sex worker and that she accidentally stumbled into a brothel.
  • Thousand-Yard Stare: She sports this when she's explaining to Yuna that she's drinking extremely bitter tea to try to stay awake and keep up with the ongoing crisis. She has a lesser version when she reads Yuna's various achievements off her Guild Card and the disconnect of her young appearance and silly outfit hits her hard.
  • Young and in Charge: Despite her looks, she's actually the Master of the Adventurers Guild at Mireera.

Adventurer Parties

    Deborane's Party 
A quartet composed of the swordsmen Deborane, Lance, and Gill, plus the mage Rurina.
  • The Big Guy: Gill is very large and heavily built, and while the relatively smaller Deborane is the group's tank, Gill makes up for it by providing decently damaging attacks with his equally large sword.
  • Breaking the Fellowship: Rurina eventually mentions that she's split ways with the party, though to be fair she stated outright that it was only ever a temporary arrangement that she got stuck with for lack of other options.
  • Bullying a Dragon:
    • Deborane does this to Yuna, thinking she's making fun of the Adventuring profession as a whole with her bizarre outfit. She quickly (and painfully) proves that she's got more than enough strength to become a respectable monster slayer by knocking him out with a single Kuma Punch.
    • Lance later tries to fight Yuna as revenge for her beating up Deborane, before he's stopped by Gill. He proceeds to continuously swear and yell at her whenever she insults him or Deborane, all while Yuna is completely un-phased by his threats along with Gill and Rurina holding him back from hurting himself trying to fight Yuna.
  • Everyone Has Standards: While Lance is open to picking on and insulting people he sees as weaklings, he's fully willing to apologize for his words and actions if somebody proves themself strong enough that he was wrong about them.
  • Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: All three guys are swordsmen that fight up close, while Rurina, the sole woman, is a mage that fights with and supports the guys from a distance.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Gill and Rurina have the closest relationship among the party, and Gill positively towers over Rurina, who, while not especially tall, isn't short by any means.

The Commerce Guild

Officials and Staff

    Mylene 
Voiced by: Yuko Kurose (JP), Ashe Thurman (EN)
A clerk at the Crimonia Commerce Guild who oftentimes helps Yuna with her various business and real estate deals. She's eventually revealed to be the Guild Master herself, much to Yuna's surprise.
  • Almighty Janitor: Yuna initially believes her to be an incredibly capable clerk as she's always ready and willing to help Yuna with her increasingly complex and groundbreaking businesses and deals, such as singlehandedly introducing steady and cheap supplies of formerly rare ingredients and getting her prime real estate for her restaurants. It's eventually revealed she's the Guild Master herself, which means that she's just taking a personal approach to one of Crimonia's most profitable and interesting entrepreneurs.
  • Christmas Cake: Yuna reveals that Mylene is 29 years old but the latter prefers the term "20s".
  • Insistent Terminology: Age-wise, she's "in her 20's". Though Yuna knows there's a stark difference between 21 and 29, she's wise enough not to say it aloud and to Mylene's face.
  • Meganekko: Glasses make a prominent feature of her character design, and she's intelligent, calm, and unfailingly polite to Yuna and all others she interacts with. Unsurprising, considering executives oftentimes need impeccable people skills and social graces.
  • King Incognito: In a sense. She doesn't loudly advertise that she's the Master of Crimonia's Commerce Guild, possibly as a means to keep people from wondering about her age.

The Royal Family of Elfanica

    King Folloht 
Voiced by: Akira Ishida
The ruling monarch of the Elfanica Kingdom.
  • A Birthday, Not a Break: A massive horde of monsters threatens the capital during his birthday celebrations, risking the lives of countless visitors and forcing their security to scramble as the soldiers were already stationed around the city to deal with tourists.
  • Adaptational Wimp: While in all versions he's a notable case of a competent king despite his eccentricities, the anime adaptation removes his Good Is Not Soft qualities as a result of being Lighter and Softer, which is particularly notable as his execution of Gruzam was left out, resulting in the guy experiencing Uncertain Doom.
  • Good Is Not Soft: He's quite a friendly and personable person, especially for a king, but that kindness doesn't mean he's helpless. He's quite willing and able to bloody his hands if that's what's necessary for the safety and happiness of the kingdom, such as when he personally executed Gruzam in secrecy.
  • Obsessed with Food: Though Yuna is one of the most dangerous and effective adventurers of the world and a revolutionary inventor and businesswoman as well, he mostly uses her to cook desserts and junk food that even his head chef considers leagues beyond his considerable talent. Yuna frequently laments and lampshades his consistently dropping everything just for the chance of getting food from her, not that the kingdom ever suffers for it.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: When Yuna arrives at the castle, he tries to avoid work and asks her to cook snacks and junk food for him, but he's otherwise an effective ruler who keeps his kingdom prosperous, the nobles happy, and the commoners safe.

    Princess Flora 
Voiced by: Hina Kino
The princess of the Elfanica Kingdom.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Her hair is styled into two tightly-woven pigtails that resemble cattails.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: She has bright pink hair and is absolutely delightful and charming.
  • Spoiled Sweet: In spite of being the princess and receiving all manner of luxuries well before Yuna came into the picture, she's very kind, well-mannered, and doesn't look down on commoners like Fina.

Antagonists

Monsters

    Black Viper 
A gigantic snake monster that is the size of a large building and up to several blocks long head-to-tail, well-known for terrorizing and devouring a town's worth of livestock and the people themselves soon after. Its extremely tough scales are resistant to most attacks while its strength is devastating, leaving even experienced adventurers hesitating to hunt it.
  • Adaptational Early Appearance: In the novel and manga it shows up a decent ways into the story, long after Yuna has established herself as a powerful adventurer. In the anime it acts as the Big Bad for the self-contained non-canon first episode.
  • Attack the Mouth: For all the sturdy scales it has to cover its body, its mouth and insides are especially vulnerable to attack. Yuna abuses this to put it down for good.
  • Feed It a Bomb: Yuna defeats it by shooting exploding bear fireballs into its mouth, scorching its internal organs, and killing it.
  • It Can Think: Given that it makes counterattacks in response to Yuna's attacks shows that the Black Viper is intelligent. It's even implied that the creature attacked Kai's village not only out of hunger but sadism.
  • Karmic Death: The Black Viper mercilessly devoured so many villagers so what a fitting death than have bear-shaped fire attacks flew right into its gullet and explode.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Yuna even lampshades the creature's abilities to move so quickly and agilely despite being so massive and physically strong.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Its iconic black scales are so tough that neither magical nor physical attacks can easily pierce them, which makes even veteran adventurers hesitate to take them on and regular folk are all but helpless to defend themselves from it. If you DO manage to take it down, you'll need a small army of well-equipped butchers to take it down section by section before it rots and you lose all that valuable material. Its insides, however, is much more delicate.
  • Snakes Are Sinister: It's a gargantuan snake with jagged spikes, fangs, and pitch-black scales.

    Goblin King 
An evolved, larger, more intelligent, but no less brutal version of the normal goblins. Though the species are capable of organizing in groups and communities to some extent, they can raise armies that are hundreds of heads strong, threatening even well-guarded and defended cities.
  • BFS: The Goblin King wields a large sword to cut down its enemies. Yuna takes the blade and gives it to the Cliff who then gives it to the King, especially notable as she got it almost completely unscathed and intact.
  • King Mook: The one that rules over the goblins and the adventurers who fight them both, being the size of a small house.
  • Large and in Charge: Its size far surpasses the other goblins.

    Kraken 
A large squid-like monster known to terrorize sea trades and ports alike. One decided to set up in the town of Mireera, completely destroying their sea-trade and almost bringing the town to the point of ruin and starvation when it found its land routes blocked as well.
  • Healing Factor: Its tentacles will regrow instantly if cut off.
  • Kaiju: Yuna even comments that this thing is even bigger than the Black Viper.
  • Stewed Alive: Yuna boils it alive till it dies, calling it the "hotpot" strategy.

    Tiger Wolf 
An evolved version of regular wolf monsters, identifiable by its distinctly feline traits and its increased ferocity and physical strength.
  • Elite Mook: It's the strongest among the wolf species but thankfully, they are way below the food chain with the top being Yuna.
  • Hybrid Monster: They seem to have a mix of traits from wolves and tigers. It also has features from saber-tooth tiger, given that they possess large, prominent fangs.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Upon seeing Yuna's overwhelming strength firsthand, one of the Tiger Wolves flee for weaker prey.

Humans and Humanoids

    Gruzam 
Voiced by: Kosuke Toriumi
A disgraced court magician of the Kingdom of Elfanica. He was once well-known as a visionary and on the cutting-edge of research until his ambitions brought him to secret inhumane experiments on criminals. After learning of this, King Folloht had him expelled and mutilated but complete and utter ruin from polite society was only a temporary setback for him and his dark works.
  • An Arm and a Leg: As punishment for his crimes, the king had Gruzam's entire left arm lobbed off.
  • Humiliation Conga: For being an immoral, smug magician, his punishment is having his entire monster army be destroyed by the "girl with the ridiculous bear costume" and said girl knocking him out in one punch.
  • Mad Scientist: Back when he was a royal magician, he used criminals as part of his experiments. It's because of it that King Folloht punished and banished him.
  • Red Shirt Army: The army of high-level monsters would be something to fear but when against the bear pajama-wearing gamer, they're cannon fodder.
  • Uncertain Doom: While his eventual fate is quite obvious in the source material (he gets executed by King Folloht), in the anime it's rather unclear how he ended up paying for his crimes after being beaten by Yuna.
