This is the character page for the Magical Drop series, sorted by introductory game.

    open/close all folders 

    In General 
  • Age Lift: Magical Drop F tinkers with the characters' ages. Most notable with the young children: Devil, Lovers, and Daughter Strength go from 4-7 years old to 10-12, and while Sun is still only a year old normally, her transformed state induces a physical age increase.
  • Gratuitous English: "Yoi, START!"
  • Henshin Hero/Villain: Almost everyone in Magical Drop F.
  • Palette Swap: Each character has a second set of colors for Player 2.
  • Tarot Motifs: Most of the characters are named and modeled after a Major Arcanum. Exactly how close they are to the actual card depends on the character.

    Magical Drop 


One of two simple, free-willed brothers. The taller Fool carries around a flower, while the more notable short Fool owns a cat companion.

  • Always Identical Twins: The Fool in the first Magical Drop is allegedly the brother of the Fool in the other games.
  • Black Bead Eyes: The only character to sport them.
  • Empathy Pet: Carries a cat around that shares his likeness and reactions, down to the snot.
  • Joke Character: A Running Gag. His attack pattern brings in perfectly even rows of balloons, meaning that it does absolutely nothing to disrupt the opponent's field.
  • Leitmotif: Fool's Dream
  • Series Mascot: Fool and his cat eventually serve this role. Especially notable with the PSX ports of Magical Drop III; the cover of the first release very prominently features Fool in the cast shot, and the second release's cover art (which includes Magical Drop Plus 1!) consists solely of both Fools.
  • Snot Bubble: Has one most of the time.
  • The Unintelligible: All they ever say is stuff like "anyo~?".
  • Warmup Boss: In most of the games. The few exceptions include the arcade version of III (where Devil is the first opponent) and the final version of V (where the order is semi-random).


A narcissistic playboy who, true to his name, is a brilliant Magician.

High Priestess

A slightly snobby clergywoman. She loves reading books, especially those that cover astrology.


A Hot-Blooded, spear-wielding warrior always seeking a new challenge.

  • Battle Boomerang: For some reason, he can pull the crest off the top of his helmet and throw it like a boomerang, not unlike Kirby. It ends up knocking out Magician in both Chariot and Magician's ending in II
  • Bald of Awesome: Apparently has no hair under the helm until his redesign in F.
  • Expressive Accessory: You'll need to pay close attention, but the lion emblem on his helmet follows Chariot's expressions.
  • Friendly Rivalry: With Justice.
  • Hot-Blooded: He is known for his fiery personality and copious amount of yelling.
  • Leitmotif: Hero of Legend
  • "Shaggy Dog" Story: His story in the PSX version of III ends with Hermit losing the Magical Drops.


A bratty kid with a giant mischievous streak. One of Empress's minions alongside Father Strength.


A cute girl with a bright smile. Unfortunately, her singing voice is absolutely cringe-inducing.


The final boss of the first Magical Drop. With her Third Eye and logic-defying Stripperific clothing, she oversees Magical Land.

    Magical Drop II 


A heroic young woman who dedicates her life to eradicating evil.

(Father) Strength

A muscle-bound brute who serves Empress alongside Devil.


A comically-sadistic Dominatrix who serves as the final boss of the second Magical Drop. Her original personality is that of a kind priestess.

  • And Now You Must Marry Me: In V, she wishes for a man who will take care of her. The Drops summon Magician, who she forcefully drags off to get married.
  • Beauty Mark: Below her left eye, though it often switches eyes due to Ambidextrous Sprite.
  • Christmas Cake: One of the 28-year-old villainess's defining traits. She makes an offhand comment about it in III, being called an old hag is her Berserk Button, and her wish in V is to get married.
  • Cleavage Window: Her outfit is cut to expose her ample cleavage.
  • Dominatrix: Wears dark leather and wields a whip.
  • Evil Is Petty: Her evil antics in III's Magical Journey include sucker-punching Justice, giving Star prank gifts, and writing in High Priestess' secret book.
  • Facial Markings: Purple stripes on her cheeks.
  • Final Boss: Of II and the adventure mode in III.
  • Leitmotif: I'm the Best!
  • Split Personality: Her original appearance is of a gentle woman wearing white robes. Black Pierrot turned her into the dark, sexy Empress we all know and love.
  • Terrible Trio: Is a part of one with Devil and Father Strength.
  • Too Many Belts
  • Whip It Good: To be expected from her depiction. One of her attack animaions is even her flailing her whip wildly.

Black Pierrot

A bizarre clown who corrupted Empress. Later picks up a harem of singing Peanut Girls.

    Magical Drop III 


An emotive man with an unhealthy obsession with fashion and a crush on Hierophant. Has an explosive temper.


A kind priest who attracts an inexplicable amount of female attention. However, he's a bit of a pushover.


A cute young girl who is never seen without her pet Piggy. Unfortunately, like many kids her age, she's not one for personal hygiene.

(Daughter) Strength

A girl raised in the jungle with a pet lion named Gao Gao. She doesn't take kindly to her father being part of Empress's antics.


An immortal grim reaper with a past too sad to mention. She enjoys drinking blood and claiming heads.


An adorable flying baby that just so happens to be able to spit fire.


A spunky tomboy who carries a bugle and values fairness above all else. She loves telling jokes, but isn't very good at it.


An old master who mentors Chariot.

Hanged Man

A man who constantly hangs upside down. Has a bit of a perverted streak.

  • Artistic License – Physics: Hanged Man is always upside-down (referencing the tarot card). He achieves this by standing on thin air.
  • Bonus Boss: Encountered by taking longer than 300 seconds to clear the first six stages in III.
  • Country Mouse: What his III design invokes.
  • Leitmotif: Shadow
  • Opposite Day: He wishes to be normal for a day. He gets his the cost of everyone else standing upside down.
  • Secret Character: Has to be unlocked via cheat code in III.
  • Too Many Belts: He wears a belt over his eye in F, and his transformed state adds even more.


A kind-hearted sleepyhead.


A beautiful woman who partakes in activities typical of trendy young adults.

  • Bonus Boss: Encountered by defeating everyone up to Hermit within 90 seconds in III.
  • Facial Markings: A half-moon on her forehead.
  • The Fashionista: She is obsessed with looking good and trashes Chariot's outfit.
  • Leitmotif: KI.MA.GU.RE
  • Race Lift: She is given a vaguely Middle Eastern redesign in F, especially in her transformed state. Though this could also be based on the Japanese "ganguro" fad.
  • Secret Character: Has to be unlocked via cheat code in III.


A massive sentient tower.

Wheel of Fortune

The final boss of Magical Drop III and beyond. A woman who seeks to wreak havoc on Magical Land.

    Magical Drop F
