For more entries related to these characters, please see Puella Magi Oriko Magica

Oriko Mikuni
Base rarity: 3*
Element: Light
Type: Magia
Magia: Oracle Ray
Doppel: Sotria
Illustrated by: Kuroe Mura
Voiced by: Saori Hayami

An upper class magical girl whose father used to be a member of the Dietnote . She will do anything necessary to reach her goals, and she tends to be thought of as a cold-hearted person, but that may just be because of the strength of her sense of justice that she got from her father. Contrary to her actions, her manner is very gentle, and she is fond of drinking black tea in elegance at home.

One of the initial playable characters. She had a vision of Madoka turning into Kriemhild Gretchen and planned to kill Madoka to avert this future disaster. However, after seeing a vision of Mami and Kyouko entering Kamihama City, she could no longer see the vision of this disaster anymore. Concluding that Kamihama City has something to do with the change of vision, she decides to make that vision comes true.

  • Adaptational Expansion: In Oriko Magica, she dies before we get to see her witch form. Here, her witch form, Sotria, is revealed.
  • All for Nothing: In her sidestory, Oriko makes a plan to distract Kyubey, Mami, and Kyoko while she investigates Kamihama. Once she gets there, she soon finds herself overwhelmed by witches and beats a hasty retreat. Also, Kyubey is conspicuously absent from Kamihama anyway.
  • Anti-Villain: Like in the manga she comes from, her goal is to save the world from the horror that is Kriemhild Gretchen.
  • Battle Aura: As a 5-star, she emits a yellow aura.
  • Energy Ball: Her primary mode of attack.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: Her Magia, Oracle Ray, has her fire a bunch at her enemies.
  • Hidden Depths: She's read Crime and Punishment multiple times since she was a child. Her exclusive Memoria is her copy of the book.
  • Light Is Not Good: Hell no it isn't. Oriko had already orchestrated the deaths of several magical girls, manipulated Yuma into making a contract, and was on her way to cause even more destruction when she noticed Madoka wasn't in Mitakihara City anymore.
  • Manipulative Bitch: But of course. Oriko manipulates the other girls into life-threatening situations constantly, especially Yuma and Kyouko.
  • Seer: Her visions of Kriemhild Gretchen drove her to become the Anti-Villain we know, and brought her and Kirika to Kamihama City.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Like in the manga, her combat prowess is limited despite her great magical power.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She wants to keep Kriemhild Gretchen from destroying the world. Her plan to solve this is to kill Madoka.
  • Would Hurt a Child: We get to see her manipulate Yuma into contracting with Kyubey.

Kirika Kure
Base rarity: 4*
Element: Dark
Type: Defense
Magia: Vampire Fang
Doppel: Latria
Illustrated by: Kuroe Mura
Voiced by: Yuka Iguchi

A magical girl with a dangerous scent that works as a faithful servant of Oriko Mikuni. For Oriko, she is called a "black magical girl" among magical girls, as she stained her hands without hesitation. The heart itself is pure like a child, the taste is childish and super sweet.

One of the initial playable characters. Oriko's loyal lackey, she was on her way to enacting the "Magical Girl Massacre" on Oriko's order before she recalled Kirika because of her changing plan.

Yuma Chitose
Base rarity: 3*
Element: Forest
Type: Heal
Magia: Lynx Impact
Illustrated by: Kuroe Mura
Voiced by: Misaki Kuno

A still-young magical girl who sticks close to Sakura Kyouko's side. She adores Kyouko like a blood relative, will do anything Kyouko says, and, if it's for Kyouko's sake, will try her hardest at anything. She has the innocence of a child, but because she suffered abuse, she possesses much more of a fear of being alone than others.

One of the initial playable characters. A child whose abusive parents were killed by a Witch, she was taken in by Kyouko, who's teaching her the street life. Goaded by Oriko to make her contract, she's stranded in Kamihama City to lure Kyouko into searching for her.

  • Because You Were Nice to Me: As in her home series, Yuma would do anything for Kyouko, who took her in after her Abusive Parents were killed by a witch.
  • Cat Girl: Her magical girl outfit's theme. Her Magia is even called Lynx Impact.
  • Combat Medic: As her wish was to heal Kyouko the majority of her powers revolve around healing.
  • Giant Waist Ribbon: In her magical girl outfit.
  • Hero-Worshipper: For Yuma, Kyouko is her entire world. It's even visible in her Memorias; every time they talk about Kyouko, she is presented as a gallant hero who had rescued Yuma from her suffering. In her eyes, Kyouko can do no wrong.
  • Morality Pet: To Kyouko. She reminds Kyouko of her deceased little sister.
  • Nice Hat: It's got little cat ears!
  • Please Don't Leave Me: Yuma begs Kyouko not to abandon her like her parents did. Poor thing.
  • Tagalong Kid: To Kyouko.
  • Token Mini-Moe: The first elementary-school magical girl in the game.

    Kazumi Magica Characters

Base rarity: 4* (event limited)
Element: Dark
Type: Attack
Magia: Limiti Esterni
Doppel: Carola
Illustrated by: Takashi Tensugi
Voiced by: Sakura Tange

Asunaro City's magical girl who has lost her memory. She usually acts with Umika Misaki and Kaoru Maki, and also lives together with them. She's more motivated for food than others and likes to eat, but her skill at making it is considerable. She can detects a witch's whereabouts by the shape of her hair antenna.

Debuted in November 20th, 2017 as one of the main character "Another Daze" event's main character.

  • All There in the Manual: With all the time the Pleiades spent trying to keep Kazumi from turning back into Michiru's witch, we never saw what would happen when Kazumi herself fell into despair... until now.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Kazumi's doppel takes her big eater tendencies and runs with it. Carola will eat anything. Familiars, other magical girls, its own runes, anything.
  • Evil Knockoff: After being separated from Kaoru and Umika, a shadowy version of her is found attacking other magical girls. It turns out, it's a doppelganger spat out by Substitute Street Rumor.
  • Face Framed in Shadow: During her transformation sequence.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: Her Blast attack has her firing a laser beam with her staff, and her Magia "Limiti Esterni" has her jumping to the sky and firing a huge laser beam from above, which bombards the entire field.
  • Magic Staff: She wields a cross-shaped staff as her weapon.
  • Nice Hat: Kazumi, as usual. Also, her doppel Carola has a very nice chef's hat with a bow.
  • Off-Model: Kazumi's designs in her card, animation, and Live2D model are not consistent. Her animation has her pom-poms replaced by Roman numerals signifying her status as the 13th clone of Michiru and lacks her cape, something that is never seen prior. Meanwhile, her four-star card depicts her with long hair, but there's nowhere in the game she's long-haired.
  • Off with His Head!: Kazumi's doppel, Carola, replaces Kazumi's head when it is summoned, and Kazumi's body just dangles there the whole time.
  • Overly Long Tongue: Kazumi's doppel Carola has one with a distressed face on it. It uses the tongue to attack Kazumi's opponents.
  • Power Gives You Wings: Kazumi's doppel gives her weird wings made of bricks.
  • Temporary Online Content: Kazumi was exclusive to the "Another Daze" event. To make matters worse, she was part of the event's gacha pulls rather than the shop.

Umika Misaki

Magia: X File
Illustrated by: Takashi Tensugi

Element: Flame
Type: Balance
Magia: Palla di Cannone
Illustrated by: Takashi Tensugi
Voiced by: Azusa Tadokoro

A magical girl from Asunaro City. She's a soccer player, and her ability is good enough to say "I will carry the number 10 in All Japan in the future." As a magical girl, she is good at fighting by making use of her physical strength. Her uniform is long-sleeved even in summer.

Debuted in November 20th, 2017 as one of the main character "Another Daze" event's main character.

  • All There in the Manual: We didn't actually know what Kaoru's soul gem looked like in her magical girl form until this game.

  • Energy Ball: Her Magia, Palla di Cannone, has her kick a giant ball of magic at her opponents like a soccer ball.
  • Form-Fitting Wardrobe: Her magical girl outfit. There's a divot where her bellybutton is, for Pete's sake.
  • Kick Chick: Fitting for a soccer player.
  • Temporary Online Content: Kaoru is exclusive to the "Another Daze" event and like with Kazumi, you had to get her from the event's gacha pulls.

    Tart Magica Characters 
For more entries related to these characters, please see Puella Magi Tart Magica

Tart/Jeanne d'Arc
Base rarity: 4* (event limited)
Element: Light
Type: Balance
Magia: La Lumiere
Doppel: La Pucelle de Blancheur
Illustrated by: Masugitsune & Kawazu-ku
Voiced by: Yui Horie

A magical girl of medieval France now known by the name of Jeanne d'Arc. Due to the death of her beloved sister Catherine, she stood up to save a France on the verge of collapse. She is simple and trustworthy, and calls Cube (Kyubey) "angel-sama."

  • Adaptational Expansion: This is the first time we've seen Tart's witch, since in the anime Madoka came for Tart's soul before she turned into a witch and in Tart's spinoff series she commits suicide by being burned at the stake.
  • All Just a Dream: Iroha and Yachiyo are actually transported into Tart's dream, and not actually physically time-travelling into the past. The aim is so Tart will turn into a witch without any of her friends' intervention, but the candles used to hypnotize Tart came into Mitama's possession and are used by Iroha and Yachiyo hundreds years later, transporting their mind back in a Mental Time Travel. Thus, the entire event is actually Tart's Adventures in Comaland.
  • Apocalypse Maiden: The entire point of the "The Chiming Bell that Transcends Time" event is for Tart to fall into despair and turning into a witch. Those who read Tart Magica will know that Tart's witch has a potential to engulf Europe, and even the entire world, in darkness. The Night That Never Ends and the disappearance of any sentient life that is visible from present Kamihama is the direct result of her witch's barrier, making her an analogue of Kriemhild Gretchen.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Her doppel manifests as a giant armored woman.
  • Blade on a Stick: Tart summons an enormous spear in her transformation sequence and her Magia.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Tart's magic-saving sword, and it doubles as her exclusive Memoria.
  • Historical-Domain Character: The Madoka Magica franchise's take on Joan of Arc.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: Uses holy magic.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: As in her home series, Tart is pure and sinless. Her Doppel outright weaponizes this.
    The master of this emotion has a pure and good heart, free from any immorality. The countless crosses that the Doppel beckons down from the sky are no mere crosses; they’re inverted crosses that symbolize the denial of divinity. All those who feel their presence shall ceaselessly disgorge their sins, be wrapped in purifying flames before one’s eyes, and finally be burned away to ashes. No matter who or what stands before this Doppel, it shall find sin within them and expose it before the light of day. In short, one has no choice but to accept the full brunt of its absurd purity.
  • Kill It with Fire: Tart's doppel burns the sin right out of its targets, along with every other part of them.
  • Light Is Good: She is an unquestionably good character.
  • Necessary Drawback: Tart's Magia is extremely powerful but inflicts Curse status on herself. This is likely a reference to Tart's enormous power and high rate of Soul Gem corruption in her own series. There is a Memoria which can negate this drawback, amusingly named "My Bible".
  • Supporting Protagonist: While she's the main character of the entire Hundred Years War plot in Tart Magica, the event is mostly about Riz and her attempt to save Tart turns out having a lot of parallel with Iroha and Yachiyo's own objective.
  • Temporary Online Content: Tart is exclusive to the first part of the "The Chiming Bell that Transcends Time" event's gacha pulls. Good luck with that.

Melissa de Vignolles
Base rarity: 3* (event reward)
Element: Aqua
Type: Magia
Magia: Désintégration
Illustrated by: Masugitsune & Kawazu-ku
Voiced by: Ai Kakuma

The daughter of the mercenary captain (La Hire), known as the Soldier of the medieval French Magical girl Jeanne d'Arc, who is serving to care for Tart. Though usually a caring and ladylike girl, once she starts nothing can stop her anger.

  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's characterized a good-natured girl as much as she's La Hire's daughter. When it comes to protecting her friends, she's right at the frontline to do so. This Is Unforgivable! is practically her catch phrase when it comes to her enemies.
  • Combat Medic: In addition to healing, she has offensive magic powerful enough to leave a gaping hole in a stone bridge.
  • Healing Hands: She wished to heal Tart and her father after they were mortally wounded, so she got healing powers.
  • Meido: Her civilian form, as seen in her transformation sequence.
  • Muggle Best Friend: Because the event is chronologically happen prior the French army's liberation of Orleans, Melissa is a normal girl the entire story event as she hasn't make her contract yet.
  • My Own Grandpa: Mitama taught Yachiyo the "good night sleep" spell, claiming that it was a well-known spell among magical girls from France. It becomes popular in France in the first place because Yachiyo taught Melissa about it.
  • Nice Hat: A little top hat affixed to a headband in her magical girl form.
  • Ninja Maid: Well, magical maid, but still.
  • Parents in Distress: One of the French generals that the heroes have to save from the witches' barrier is Melissa's father La Hire.
  • Shock and Awe: Her pole-arm is constantly crackling with electricity.
  • Temporary Online Content: Melissa is exclusive to the "The Chiming Bell that Transcends Time" event, though you can get her through normal gameplay rather than the gacha.

Riz Hawkwood
Base rarity: 4* (event limited)
Element: Dark
Type: Balance
Magia: l'Ombre
Doppel: Obscurité
Illustrated by: Masugitsune & Kawazu-ku
Voiced by: Ami Koshimizu

A cool magical girl from medieval Italy who stood up to save France with Tart and two other people. She is fighting on the front line of the French army in the middle of the Hundred Years War while supporting Tart with a magic which manipulates "shadows". She seems to be a descendant of a famous military man but does not want to talk too much about it.

  • Adaptational Expansion: Riz died in her home series before she turned into a witch, so this is its first appearance.
  • Badass Cape: It's made out of shadows. Her civilian attire also has one.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her magical girl outfit exposes her midriff, something not normally seen in the manga as it is normally covered by her cape.
  • Boobs of Steel: Her breasts are emphasized within her character art and transformation sequence and she kicks a great deal of ass.
  • Casting a Shadow: Riz' explicit personal magic is shadow manipulation. She's very good at it.
  • Cool Big Sis: Both Tart and Melissa have high opinion on Riz, whether it's as a person, a mentor, a soldier, or a magical girl.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: You can't exactly be evil if Jeanne d'Arc trusts you completely. Though her Doppel is said to be the Doppel of Deception, it's more of the fact that Riz had Walking the Earth searching for a 'hero', not knowing that magical girl contract can turn magical girls into monsters, as shown in Tart Magica. One of the deceased magical girls Riz persuaded to contract accused Riz of lying to her after her twin died turning into a witch, thus making the "deception" here a Heroic Self-Deprecation. Her Doppel description even explains how her shadow is what supports Tart's light.
    The master of this emotion is compassionate towards others even in a crisis. Though it can be called providence that there is shadow wherever there is light, it is also providence that light never falls where a shadow is cast. This Doppel is forever a shadow nestling at the side of a hero bathed in dazzling light, the darkness itself which never reveals its basic nature. However, that in itself makes the light ever so much more conspicuous. The two are inseparably bound by divine providence.
  • Gainaxing: Gets a almost-unnoticed one in her transformation sequence, which is hard to see due to her black attire but still present.
  • The Hero: "The Chiming Bell that Transcends Time" event emphasizes that Riz is the "shadow" to Tart's "light" by making her the protagonist of the story where Tart falls into despair.
  • Multi-Melee Master: Riz can use a lot of edged weapons made from manipulating her shadow. Daggers, swords, scythes, and spears are some of the examples.
  • Prehensile Hair: Her Doppel comes from her black hair, looking like a mass of tendrils that aren't obvious from where her hair starts and her shadow ends coming out of a seashell.
  • Shadow Walker: Riz can pop in and out of the shadows with a swirl of her cape, shadow-travel short distances to get the edge on her opponents, and even hide her friends in there.
  • Temporary Online Content: Riz is exclusive to the second part of the "The Chiming Bell that Transcends Time" event's gacha pulls.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A in her magical girl form.

    Suzune Magica Characters 
For more entries related to these characters, please see Puella Magi Suzune Magica

Suzune Amano
Base rarity: 4* (event limited)
Element: Flame
Type: Attack
Magia: Camellia Flame
Doppel: Clothette
Illustrated by: GAN
Voiced by: Yoshino Nanjo

A magical girl who decided to transfer to Akanegasaki Middle School. Having neither kith nor kin, she makes a living by doing a part-time job. On one hand she leaves a good impression to people in school, but on the other hand she has a ruthless 'assassin' face hunting magical girls after school. Deep inside her closed heart, she is hiding a sad past.

  • BFS: Suzune's weapon is a giant X-Acto knife sword.
  • Deconstructed Character Archetype: Suzune's performance in the "Cross Connection" story shows that outside of a very specific set of circumstances, Suzune is actually pretty incompetent. Compared to her home series, where most magical girls fight by themselves and don't trust each other, Suzune is trying to play her usual lone wolf assassin persona straight in Kamihama City where everyone has "political ties" with everyone else. She fails to slay any magical girl because magical girls in Kamihama work in groups most of the time, and her first target is Kokoro, who always has Masara on standby invisible near her precisely so Kokoro can't get caught off guard. The moment Suzune fails to kill Kokoro, every other magical girl in the city learn of her presence and begin a manhunt for her. She can't use her usual trick of jumping on a distracted magical girl fighting witches either because Kamihama's witches and familiars are too strong, thus risking getting herself killed. She's finally driven out of Kamihama because she has no ally in the city and she alienates anyone who feels the slightest bit of sympathy towards her.
  • Playing with Fire: Her fire manipulation is actually her absorbing her mentor's power as her own.
  • Punny Name: Suzune's Doppel, Clothette, has the form of kagerou, which can either mean "heat haze" or "mayfly". Clothette is a giant flaming fly who burns Suzune if she's using it too much.
  • Reluctant Monster: She doesn't want to kill other magical girls, but doesn't think that there's any other way, showing just how strong Kagari's influence on her. It is implied from her dialogues that she can't physically resist the urge to kill magical girls no matter what.
  • Secret Test of Character: After she's caught almost killing Kokoro, a small group consisting of Nanaka, Akira, Meiyui, Kokoro, and Masara decide to see what her intentions are, and if she can be reasoned with. They first send Akira, who Suzune had bonded with the previous day, to try to talk with her. Suzune decides to attack Akira anyway, despite not wanting to because of her personal beliefs. The rest of the group except Meiyui then jumps in to aid Akira. Suzune still keeps fighting them all despite that and successfully slays the four. After Suzune flees the scene, it turns out that Meiyui is faking everyone's deaths to see just how far Suzune's willing to take her actions. Realizing that there's no way someone could be that Stupid Evil, Meiyui concludes that Suzune is not herself but thinks that she's too dangerous to stay in the city. Meiyui, under Nanaka's suggestion, then spreads "the Ripper" rumor that is seen in Suzune Magica with her gangster network to warn other magical girls outside Kamihama about Suzune's rampage and to make Suzune's life even more difficult.
  • Temporary Online Content: Is exclusive to the "Cross Connection" event.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She's still stalking around cities, killing magical girls, because she thinks she's giving them a Mercy Kill is better than them turning into witches. But because of her unwillingness to be honest with her motives, under the pretext of the Awful Truth, everyone else thinks that she's a dangerous murderer. Nanaka on the other hand despises her methods because it shows that Suzune is an irrational coward who listens to no one but herself.

Chisato Shion
Base rarity: 3* (event limited)
Element: Water
Type: Support
Magia: Enforcement
Illustrated by: GAN
Voiced by: Nao Touyama

One of four magical girls that goes to Akanegasaki Middle School. She's calm and collected, and she conducts herself agreeably. Although cool, like when she rehabilitated Arisa's bad behavior in the past, that's just one side of this thoughtful colleague. Her father was a "picture book" author once.

  • Adaptational Expansion: Her relationship with Arisa, by virtue of not delegating it to a flashback, is a lot more nuanced than in her home series. It also gives more an inside look on her thoughts over her relationship with her father and that of her wish.
  • Animation Bump: She was released alongside Suzune and Arisa, and seems to have gotten most of the animation budget. Her trasnformation and battle animations are very smooth.
  • Ascended Extra: She was a Sacrificial Lamb in her original series. Here, she's the protagonist for her side of the Cross Connection Suzune Magica event.
  • Daddy's Girl: She's adores her father, even after he became worse from his work failures. Her regrets over her wish is mostly because her wish caused her father to stop being a writer, despite his love for writing and her bond with her father when she was younger was when she contributed in his books. In her mind, even though his temperament gets better after her wish, he's no longer her father because the thing that made her father himself was gone.
  • Gun Kata: Her fighting style is less like Mami and more like how it looks in Equilibrium because the size of her guns. Because her guns don't seem like single shots unlike other gun users, she tends to spray bullets everywhere with her acrobatics.
  • Morality Pet: Chisato's presence is reining Arisa's more violent side. While we see Arisa at her worst in Suzune Magica, in "Cross Connection" Arisa is a lot more understanding, mellow, and affable despite still being a hard A-type tsundere.
  • Temporary Online Content: Is exclusive to the "Cross Connection" event.

Arisa Narumi
Base rarity: 3* (event reward)
Element: Dark
Type: Balance
Magia: Full Boost Combat
Illustrated by: GAN
Voiced by: Kana Ueda

One of the four Magical Girls that go to Akanegazaki Middle School. She has a lively personality and hates studying. Her crude speech can often chide from a long distance away. Before becoming a magical girl, she was quiet and weak and completely different than she is now.

  • Defeat Means Friendship: After she made her wish, she got Drunk with Power and developed a hint of Social Darwinism with her penchant to not liking losing, even for something as trivial as an arcade game. She became a bully herself. Yet, when Chisato defeated her, Chisato didn't struck her down but instead extended her friendship toward her. Arisa was touched by Chisato's kindness and thought that maybe, just maybe, her philosophy was wrong.
  • Expy: A pretty obvious one of Asuka Langley Soryu (hair style, general personality, backstory involving neglect, relationship with a blue-haired girl of a contrasting personality), with hints of Kyoko (rebellious streak, disregard for school rules, eating pocky, wearing hoodies).
  • Not a Morning Person: She's patrolling at night, so she has just slept at the morning. Her morning log-in greeting is nothing more than barely coherent yawns.
  • Opposites Attract: She gets along with her teammates because they all have serene-type personalities that will soothes her hotheadedness. When facing a fellow tsundere like, say Rena, they immediately start competing for whatever reason.
  • Satellite Character: In a reversal of their roles in Suzune Magica, Arisa is mostly limited as Chisato's friend and how her Heel–Face Turn is a proof of how good a person Chisato is.
  • Status Buff: Her self-strengthening power is translated in-game as status buff for attack, defense, and critical hit (for her Magia).
  • Temporary Online Content: Is exclusive to the "Cross Connection" event, though you can get her through normal gameplay rather than the gacha.

How well does it match the trope?
