Takamichi T. Takahata
Voiced by: Norihiro Inoue (anime, Japanese), Keiji Fujiwara (games, Japanese), Tetsuya Kakihara (Ala Rubra Drama CD), Mark Stoddard (English)
Portrayed by: Hiroshi
Class 2A's original homeroom teacher, Asuna was quite upset when she learned that Negi was taking over that job. Takamichi is an old friend of Negi's, as evidenced when Negi greeted him in casual mode, when Negi first arrived at Mahora University.
- Air Jousting: During the Mahora Budokai.
- Alliterative Name: His family and given name both start with 'Taka' and his middle initial is T.
- Brick Joke: When discussing Takahata's popularity, Mei mentions the rumor that he had destroyed an entire evil secret organization by himself. Almost half the manga later, we meet a survivor of that organization who's holding a bit of a grudge.
- Cool Teacher: Basically every female student looks up to him.
- Dark and Troubled Past: He saw his mentor die right in front of him.
- Expy: Of Seta from Love Hina; an older man who mentors the younger hero, is considered The Ace, and also has a significant relationship with the heroine.
- Flash Step: When Negi is getting better at it durning their fight, Takamichi reminds him that he also can use them.
- His Quirk Lives On: He took on several traits of his deceased teacher Gateau, such as smoking and the Perma-Stubble.
- Insecure Love Interest: The main reason he rejects Asuna is because he believes he doesn't deserve to be loved by her or anyone else.
- Intergenerational Friendship: With Negi. Which side of that he falls on with regards to Asuna is... complicated.
- Meteor Move: How Negi finds out why Takahata sensei was once a feared warrior.
- Mr. Fanservice: In-universe. In the Magic World, he's a sex symbol and often graces the cover of magazines.
- Muggle Born of Mages: Despite being involved in the magic side, he was born unable to cast spells.
- Mysterious Middle Initial: We never learn what the 'T' in his name stands for.
- Not So Above It All: He's a rather serious-minded fellow but delves into childish antics when dealing with Godel.
- Oblivious to Love: Asuna makes it very obvious that she's crushing on him hard but he never picks up on it until she flat out tells him that she loves him.
- Perma-Stubble: His facial hair never changes once throughout the entire series.
- Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: He can use the Iaiken technique in which he uses his pockets in replacement for a scabbard, and throws punches faster than the eye can see.
- Red Baron: "Death Glasses" Takahata, and not just to unruly students.
- Smoking Is Cool: Asuna certainly thinks so.
- Specs of Awesome: He has no magical abilities, but is one helluva fighter. He's even nicknamed "Death Glasses".
- Stoic Spectacles: Thin glasses? Check. Hot? Asuna is convinced at least so check. Badass? Double check. Expression ranges from bemused smile to mildly concerned frown even in the midst of combat? Check.
- Tagalong Kid: He spent a good part of his childhood hanging out with Ala Rubra because his teacher was a member of the group.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Godel, tending to push and shove him like a schoolboy when talking to him.
- Walk on Water: He casually stands on water in his tournament fight with Negi.
- Weak, but Skilled: He can't invoke spells, but he makes up for it with Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs and mastery over the powerful Kanka technique.
- Yin-Yang Bomb: The kanka technique consists in Takamichi combining ki and magic power inside his body to unleash powerful attacks.

Portrayed by: Gajiro Sato
University Headmaster, head of the Kanto Magical Association, and Konoka's grandfather.
- Amusing Injuries: Like when Konoka smacks him with a mallet for trying to persuade Negi to go out with her.
- Brick Joke: Early on there are a few jokes about how he wants to set up Konoka with Negi. This makes more sense when you realize A. She's got enormous magical potential, B. Negi is the son of the strongest mage alive (barring maybe Evangeline) C. Said mage is a world famous hero D. Negi is royalty and E. Negi has absolutely ridiculous potential. He was being serious and it actually makes perfect sense.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Heavily implied to be one of the more powerful characters in the series, but he has only been shown performing magic twice. First, at Library Island, he harassed Negi and the Baka Rangers by operating two golems. Second, during the Martian robot invasion, he levitated a few hundred feet above the ground during the Martian robot invasion (which, admittedly, is impressive, even with the extra ambient magic at the time).
- Confirmed as of chapter 331 and 332, he can easily battle two of the Averruncus series
- Deal with the Devil: A humorous variant, in that he managed to persuade Eva to aid Negi and Co. at Kyoto at the terrible price of letting her enjoy a few days of vacation while he stamps a permission for her absence... every 5 seconds. Hey, anything for the granddaughter.I think I'm going to die!
- Dirty Old Man: His head somehow finds its way into Shizuna's cleavage... She's not amused.
- Pass the Popcorn: During the Battle of Mahora, he and Evangeline spend the entire time sitting on the sidelines and watching while drinking sake.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: All he needs is his granddaughter, a lesbian half demon Samurai, and a talking ermine to show up with a message from a ten-year-old that said ten-year-old's supergenius Chinese descendant from the future is going to use an army of robots to break The Masquerade, and he sends out for a huge shipment of weapons from the Magic World, and helps organize the student body into a Redshirt Army.
- Repetitive Name: Like his granddaughter, his names sound very similar: Konoe Konoemon.
- Shipper on Deck: Wouldn't mind to have Konoka marrying Negi....
- Action Girl: Goes head-to-head with Setsuna and Kaede during Mahorafest.
- Blank White Eyes: Upon seeing Shakti and Seruhiko not killed, but instead stripped by invading demons.
- Christmas Cake: Technically, she does have a boyfriend, but she seems to be kind of antsy about approaching 30 without being married. In the bad future, separation from him sent her into an unreasoning rage, forcing a confrontation with Kaede and Setsuna.
- Hime Cut: Fits her calm and collected demeanor, as well as her ability in the traditional Shinmeiryu arts.
- Hot Teacher: The students certainly appreciate it.
- Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes past her waist.
- She's Got Legs: A student is seen snapping a picture of her and commenting that she's got great legs.
- Stern Teacher: The students were surprised that she would participate in something as 'silly' as the Mahorafest finale.
- The Stoic: Normally calm and expresses little.
- Telepathy: Played for Laughs when she "hears" Setsuna thinking of her as an "experienced" fighter, and interpret it as "middle aged hag".
One of the magic teachers at Mahora and Yuna's father. He is quite disturbed by his daughter's Electra Complex.
- Children Raise You: Ever since his wife died, his daughter Yuna has been looking after the household chores for him. Yuna says her father would be hopeless without her around.
- Mistaken for Cheating: Parodied in Yuna's A Day in the Limelight chapter, where his daughter thinks he's "cheating" with a pretty blonde woman (who turns out to be her mother's old friend). Yuna's friends question who exactly is her father supposedly cheating on, since he's a widower.
- The Mourning After: He hasn't remarried and he says he still deeply loves his deceased wife.
- Porn Stash: He keeps the poster of a naked lady in his desk (to have something to divert Yuna from magic documents, probably).
- Unnamed Parent: His first name is not given. He is only known as Professor Akashi or Yuna's father.
Voiced by: Kikuko Inoue (Japanese), Colleen Clinkenbeard (English)
Portrayed by: Nao Oikawa
The head nurse and guidance counselor at Mahora.
- Buxom Is Better: When Kazumi disguised herself as her, Negi could blow off her cover since her boobs weren't as big.
- Hospital Hottie: She's a very attractive and buxom nurse.
Seruhiko, Gandolfini, Mitsuru Nijūin, Kataragi, Sister Shakti
- Master of Illusion: Nijūin's daughter
- Razor Wind: Kataragi can launch it with a Badass Fingersnap.
- Stern Teacher: Sister Shakti for Misora.
- Suddenly Sober: Because of stress about the whole 'eremine camp punishment' Gandolfini drinks from hip-flask at work (saying he was supposed to have an off day) to the point of tottering, red cheeks, drunk rants and all (though Seruhiko says he's not good at drinking), but when they got a call about intruders (and imidietely meet them) he loose his drunk look and pick up his weapons instantly.
- The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Nijūin's, though more like Cute daughter.
Mahora Academy - Other Students
Impregnable Shadow Master
Voiced by: Yumi Shimura (games, Japanese), Naomi Inoue (Drama CD, Japanese)
A zealous, by-the-book Mahora High school student who's also a secret dark mage. Also noted for her inability to keep her clothes on, or at least intact.
- Aren't You Going to Ravish Me?: When Negi beats her without the usual clothing damage:"Why... aren't you stripping me? You won, and yet you do not undress me!! Is this supposed to be pity?! Or is this because I no longer allure you?!"
- Big Damn Heroes: What she, Mei, Cocone and Misora pulled late in the Magic World arc.
- Butt-Monkey: Despite being a talented mage, she tends to end up naked and/or humiliated due to terrible circumstances.
- Cannot Keep a Secret: She doesn't believe in keeping secrets and especially if that secret pertains to someone else, like the truth about Yuna's mother and she will say what she thinks.
- Casting a Shadow: She fights using powerful shadow magic. She uses her shadows to create golems, and clothes, and, presumably, anything else.
- Cleavage Window: Her outfit has an opening in the chest area.
- Clothing Damage: In a series where everyone gets this, she's so infamous that others call her "streaker".
- Dark Is Not Evil: While she's a shadow mage who uses creepy-looking shadow puppets, she's one of the good guys, if a bit too serious in her purposes.
- Elemental Armor: She uses her shadow magic to create armor for herself. Unfortunately, it always ends up getting dispelled, which leaves her naked.
- Embarrassing Nickname: To her indignation, her tendency of ending up naked in public has gained her the title of "Streaker".
- Genre Blind: "We're getting close to the final confrontation, so everyone needs to be clad only in my magic shadow armor that inevitably gets dispelled. What?" Surprisingly it actually stays intact.
- Girlish Pigtails: She ties some of her hair up into twin-tails.
- Glass Cannon: Her magic ability is on par with some of the best in the series, indeed Negi says he couldn't hold back against her because of this, but if you manage to get in close, like he did, she'll probably go down in a single hit.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She has blonde hair and a strong devotion to justice.
- Kryptonite Is Everywhere: When asked "Is Takane easily stripped because she's not good at defense?", Akamatsu replied: "Takane's defensive capabilities is top-class amongst the magic students. She just meets a poor match every time."
- Large Ham: She likes to make grand proclamations as a "hero of justice".THE APOSTLE OF JUSTICE, TAKANE D. GOODMAN, HAS COME!
- Mysterious Middle Initial: We never learn what the 'D' stands for.
- Naked People Are Funny: Her frequent clothing damage is played for laughs.
- Names to Trust Immediately: As her Surname suggest, she's a good person, if a bit too serious about it.
- Nice Hat: She wears a hat that looks like a nurse's cap.
- Onee-sama: To Mei who addresses her as such. It falls under the appreciation subtype. Lesbian undertones are undercut because of Mei's crush on Kotarō.
- Overshadowed by Awesome: As far as magic ability goes, she is well above average and that's not even considering that she is only in high school, but in this series that just makes her an Elite Mook at most.
- Reluctant Fanservice Girl: Zig-Zagged. She gets publicly humiliated in her matches at the Mahora Martial Arts Tournament where she ended up standing naked in front of the big crowd. However, when a fight with Negi ends with her not getting stripped, she complains about it and takes it as a sign of pity.
- Sempai/Kohai: Being a high-school student, she's an upperclassman to the girls of Class 3-A.
- Took a Level in Badass: She was a sort-of comedic Inspector Javert in the Tournament arc. In the Magic World arc, she pulled her Big Damn Heroes, then she did what she could to keep Chachamaru alive - which included pulling a flame spear from her body, and it worked, since Chachamaru soon was in the hands of Hakase, who saved her.
- Tsundere: Harsh type for Negi. She starts antagonizing the boy during the Mahora Fest because she considers him irresponsible as a teacher, to the point she enters the Mahora Tournament to discipline him. Obviously, it doesn't ends well for her. Many chapters in and we're shown it reaches the point that, when Negi defeats her a second time, she's worried that the fact he doesn't strips her means he doesn't find her attractive.
"I Love Cleaning" or "Cleaning Enthusiast" (for her Pactio)
Voiced by: Mei Kadowaki (games, Japanese), Tomoko Nakamura (OAD, Japanese)
Studies in Mahora Middle School as an exchange student from an American Magic School. Takane's usual partner-in-crime as they are often seen together (also her pactio partner).
- Big Damn Heroes: What she, Takane, and Misora pulled in the manga.
- Eagle Land: She's an exchange student from an American Magic School and fits a type 1 because she's a Nice Girl.
- Expy: She's based off of Mei Narusegawa from Love Hina, though there is evidence to suggest that they're actually the same character.note
- Flying Broomstick: Her artifact. A Shout-Out to Cardcaptor Sakura when she uses it.
- Playing with Fire: Uses this type of magic the most.
- Super Drowning Skills: She can't swim, and thus had to be rescued by Kotarō after he knocked her into the water during their fight at the Mahora Tournament.
Takane's second ministra.
Voiced by: Yuka Inokuchi (Japanese)
A mysterious young girl connected with the Church, very little is known about Cocone. She speaks rarely, and almost never to anyone but Misora, her Ministra. Because she is capable of performing a Pactio as a Magistra, she possesses some level of magic power, but her strength and skill level are a mystery.
- Ambiguously Brown: Perhaps not so ambiguous anymore; later events suggest that she's a refugee, or at least an expatriate, of the Hellas Empire.
- Cross-Popping Veins: She gets annoyed at Misora a lot.
- Cute Mute: Never speaks. Ever.
- Emotionless Girl: The extent of the emotions she shows are just mild annoyance to Misora.
- Morality Pet: Not so much Morality as Responsibility; without Cocone around, Misora would run away from a lot more than she already does.
- Taking the Bullet: Did this for Misora in the School Festival arc, but it only resulted in her getting sent three hours into the future. It was a particularly jarring instance since she was one of the first we saw this happening to, and Misora felt very real despair, thinking she was dead.
- You Are Number 6: Empire Immigration Program Test Subject No. 18
- Big Damn Heroes: When normal people got themselves invaded by demons leaking out from the Magic World, he just smacks one like it was nothing.
- Chew Bubblegum: Although Kaoru never says the line himself, he is shown to be carrying bubblegum on him at the time of the fighting tournament. It seems that by having bubblegum he was unable to bring the ass-kicking since he was knocked out of the preliminaries by Negi.
- Combat Commentator: Gōtokuji acts as a commentator alongside Chachamaru during the fighting tournament. He provides insightful information on the different competitors more obscure techniques, such as Manas Rakansen.
- Delinquent: Averted in that he looks like a delinquent, including pompadour, but his personality is nothing like a delinquents being very friendly.
- Ki Manipulation: Gōtokuji has some skill in ki attacks, being shown to be able to use the long hit technique in his fight against Negi.
- Loincloth: After getting inflicted with Clothing Damage.
- Adorably Precocious Child: The main reason why they won the competition for the best couple.
- Crush Blush: Both got quite a Luminescent Blush durning the confession.
- Dark Horse Victory: In The Mahora Festival Best Couple Contest, they won against aged up Negi with Ako, and a pair of highschoolers (which shocked the girl intensely).
- Girlish Pigtails: Yuki-chan has these tied with ribbons, adding to the cuteness.
- Love Confession: Negi had to move them from the dangerous spot, but later it went rather smoothly.
- Nice Hat: Yuki has one, probably part of her Sailor Fuku.
- Puppy Love: They won the competition for the best couple and they are still in elementary school.
- Continuity Nod: Mentions in passing the time Evangeline attacked Makie over three hundred chapters prior. Though considering Makie's memory of the event was wiped, you have to wonder how he knows about it.
- Last Episode, New Character: He's introduced in the penultimate chapter of the series.
- She Is Not My Girlfriend: Makie asks him if Makoto is his girlfriend, which he denies in embarrassment.

Negi's cousin from his father's side, she was a teenager when their hometown got destroyed. As such and as Negi's relative, she became his caretaker until he went to Japan and she stayed in Wales.
- An Arm and a Leg: Her legs were turned to stone and broke off. It is not clear if they were magically restored, or if she wears prostheses.
- Identical Stranger:
- She looks like a blonde Asuna with her hair down.
- In the manga, some members of Class 3-A thought Nekane and Ayaka looked fairly alike.
- Multi-Ethnic Name: She has a Japanese given name and an English surname.
Voiced by: Nanaho Katsuragi (Japanese), Christine Auten (English)The main villain of the Kyoto arc, Chigusa is a young glasses wearing woman that is supposed to work for Eishun and their magic branch, but has issues with Western mages and magic. A fairly Harmless Villain on her own; even Negi was clearly superior to her at this point. Amusingly enough, all three of her 'minions' are far more important and powerful than she. Her plan to unseal the local sealed demon god failed spectacularly when Evangeline showed up.
- Animal Motif: Monkeys
- Arc Villain: Of the Kyoto Arc, though she was by far the weakest among them.
- Dirty Coward: Chachazero scared her into fainting.
- Freudian Excuse: She blames the Kansai Association for the deaths of her parents.
- Paper Talisman: usually her casting medium - used one to make a massive wall of flames to prevent Negi and co. from following her.
- Smug Snake: Her arrogance - most of which is based on her admittedly competent and powerful minions - is surpassed only by her cowardice.
- Summon Magic: Unleashed a plague of frogs on 2-A during their train trip to Kyoto, and has summoned monkeys on other occasions, as well as using Konoka to unseal an Eldritch Abomination that Chigusa would then (presumably) control.

Chachazero is Evangeline's other servant. Unlike Chachamaru, Chachazero is basically as crazy and vicious as Tsukuyomi... only she's about a foot tall and completely immobile without someone to supply her with mana, so she basically just gets to say funny things.
- Ax-Crazy: More of a subversion. The things she says make her sound like a homicidal maniac, but even when she's free to move, she never tries to hurt anyone.
- BFS: But only relative to her own tiny size. For anyone else it'd be a big knife. For her? Twice her size.
- Curtains Match the Window: Like Chachamaru, her hair and eyes are green.
- The Dreaded: For her only "fight", she terrified Chigusa so much that the latter passed out from fear.
- Heroic Comedic Sociopath: She never actually gets to do the horrible things she suggests, so it's played for laughs.
- Odd Friendship: She gets along very well with Chamo.
- Perpetual Smiler: Her face is permanently locked in a wide smile.
- Perverse Puppet: She has a decently strong sense of free will above mere "puppet". That scale of free will just happens to be on the line between grimly humorous and psychotic.
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Implied for when she has enough mana to actually move around. After all, Evangeline basically keeps her around for this as her only combat ally.
- Reflectionless Useless Eyes: For being a puppet.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has green hair, like her "little sister".
