Characters appearing in the anime series Levius. Work in progress.
Cromwell Family and Associates
Voiced by: Nobunaga Shimazaki (Japanese), Zach Aguilar (English), Jose Luis Piedra (Latin-American Spanish)
- The Ace: The best metal boxer of his generation.
- Adaptational Heroism: In the manga, Levius is much more ruthless and pragmatic, with shades of Ax-Crazy, while the anime makes him a clear case of Nice Guy.
- An Arm and a Leg: While every metal boxer has cybernetic limbs as a requirement for the sport, Levius is unusual in the sense that only his right arm is mechanical and he's rejected every offer to replace his left arm with a prosthetic several times, as his left arm is his only reminder of the day he lost his mother.
- Born Winner: Played with. As someone born in Greenbridge, he's able to control Agartha Water steam better than regular people, giving his punches with his cybernetic arm more power than they ought to have. However, he refuses to replace his legs and arms with prosthetics that would fully allow him to exploit this advantage, if he'd feel so inclined to at all.
- Friendly Rival: With Natalia. Natalia always boasts about being the one that will eventually defeat Levius in a match, so she tells him never to lose until then. Levius, for his part, is always unfailingly kind and polite towards Natalia, to the point he even considers her family.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold
- The Hero: The titular main character.
- Ideal Hero: In the anime. In contrast to his Anti-Hero original self from the manga.
- How Much More Can He Take?: His matches with both Malcolm and AJ push him to his limits.

- Bumbling Dad: Bumbling Uncle, in his case. He tries very hard to connect with Levius, who still wracked with grief after losing his mother
- Eye Scream: He wears a special eyepatch that regulates the amount of light his left eye can take. The nerves connecting that eye to his brain are so damaged that Zack cannot take off the eyepatch, lest he risks brain damage. He takes it off during Levius' match with AJ to figure out where did Dr. Crown install AJ's second steam generator.
- Hunk: In the anime adaptation he's much more well built and less dirty overall.
- Parental Substitute: To Levius.
- Survivor's Guilt: He still feels bad for being unable to stop his brother, Levius' father, from going to the war that ultimately claims his life.
Voiced by: Ayane Sakura (Japanese), Julia McIlvaine (English), Alicia Barragán (Latin-American Spanish)
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: Present from the second half of the anime onwards, in the manga she becomes Levius's girlfriend
- Friendly Rival: With Levius. Natalia always boasts about being the one that will eventually defeat Levius in a match, so she tells him never to lose until then. Levius, for his part, is always unfailingly kind and polite towards Natalia, to the point he even considers her family.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She can be abrasive and loud, but she nevertheless means well.
- Skilled, but Naïve: Natalia is legitimately as gifted as she boasts, which is a good job as she doesn't know how to train, is startlingly ignorant of the fundamentals, and tends to overestimate her own skills.
Voiced by: Takahiro Sakurai (Japanese), Todd Haberkorn (English), Arturo Cataño (Latin-American Spanish)
- The Smart Guy: Aside from repairing and keeping maintenance of Levius' arm, Bill is also knowledgeable in the fields of history and medicine. He was so gifted he got a job offer from Amethyst.
Dr. Rudolph Clown
Voiced by: Mamoru Miyano (Japanese), Trevor Devall (English), Irwin Daayán (Latin-American Spanish)
- Actually a Doombot: The Clown we've been watching this whole time was an automaton. The real Clown is still at large.
- Adaptational Attractiveness: In the anime he's a handsome Sharp-Dressed Man, in the manga, he's Cyberpunk Kefka Palazzo.
- Big Bad: The primary antagonist of the anime and manga.
- Malevolent Masked Man: Even more so in the manga, where he combines it actual clown make-up.
- Non-Action Big Bad: He isn't a metal boxer. Instead, it's AJ who Levius has to defeat. Averted in the manga, however, he's a pretty badass Arms Dealer that doesn't take shit from anyone.
- Practically Joker: His view of violence as a form of art, dissonant joy while slaughter is happening and obsession with Levius all brings this to mind (his last name is even Clown, for Pete's sake). The manga goes full-bore with this, with the crazy outfits and him wearing clown makeup.
Voiced by: Saori Hayami (Japanese), Christine Marie Cabanos (English), Nycolle González (Latin-American Spanish)
- Boobs of Steel: Unarmored, she is busty in the manga, in the anime she's small chested.
- Brainwashed: Clown subjected her to severe brainwashing in order to turn her into an efficient fighter.
- Damsel in Distress: A rare example of The Hero having to fight the Damsel in Distress in order to save her.
- Implied Love Interest: Interestingly, in the anime she's implied to fall in love with Levius, while in the manga she loses her memory and remains as Levius's friend, Natalia is the one who becomes Levius's girlfriend.
- Single Tear: Happens whenever she tries to fight off Clown's brainwashing.
- Trigger Phrase: Clown has two for AJ: "Fortissimo", which forces her to fight, and "Cadenza", which pushes her into a mindless berserker rage. In the manga it makes her hair grow and become white
Voiced by: Houchu Ohtsuka (Japanese), Neil Kaplan (English), José Antonio Macías (Latin-American Spanish)
- Cross Counter: On the receiving end of it during the end of his fight with Levius.
- Death Seeker: Upon watching his career crumble, Malcolm grows dissatisfied with life and comes to believe that dying honorably in the ring is the only glory he can achieve. In the manga, Levius grants his wish. In the anime, Levius instead reignites his will to live and Malcolm retires peacefully.
- Retired Badass: After losing his match to Levius, Malcolm chooses to retire and fund a charity to help injured boxers and families of dead soldiers. He does help Levius train for his bout against AJ.
- Spared by the Adaptation: In the anime, he survives his match with Levius and retires.
Voiced by: Daisuke Ono (Japanese), Jamieson Price (English), Víctor Hugo Aguilar (Latin-American Spanish)
- Break the Haughty: He initially thinks of nothing of AJ, until she proves capable of standing up to him.
- Body Horror: He ends up as a pile of organs in the manga.
- Heel: He deliberately plays one in the ring in an effort to simulate his idol.
- Hidden Depths: As much as he trash talks and bullies those around him, Hugo fights clean, avoiding dirty tricks and preventing a solid punch from landing when the bell rings mid-swing.
- Spared by the Adaptation: He survives his match with AJ in the anime, thanks to Levius jumping into the ring and saving him.
