Jubey

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jubey_square.png
The "fairy" that contracted with Kazumi and the Pleiades Saints. Revealed to be an "incomplete" Incubator clone created by Niko using one of Kyubey's dead bodies.
Advertisement:
  • Ambiguously Evil: Subverted. He is shown sitting beside Kyubey at one point, suggesting they were plotting together. However, Jubey was unable to see Kyubey, as he was influenced by the power of the Pleiades' barrier.
  • Body Horror: How he dies. He tries to purify Kazumi's Soul Gem, but isn't able to; instead he starts crumbling into pieces, and simply says "Ciao" to Kazumi before he dissolves completely.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Not only is he an Incubator (after a fashion), but his color scheme is far darker and his design a little more monstrous than Kyubey's. Unlike Kyubey, though, Jubey seems to genuinely care for his charges and never shows any real signs of Kyubey's deviousness.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Satomi calls him "Bey-chan", and Niko calls him, "Beyyan." He doesn't like it.
  • Expressive Hair / Expressive Ears: It's...not quite clear what they are, but in Chapter 8 he uses one of them to make a thinking pose, complete with thumb and forefinger cupped under his chin.
  • The Fair Folk: Described as a fairy (yousei). The official translation uses "mystical creatures" or "sprite" instead.

    • Development Gag: An early series proposal for the anime referred to the contract making creature as a fairy.
  • Fake Memories / Heel–Face Brainwashing: Originally it seems like this is the reason he doesn't act like the other Incubators. Eventually subverted; this event was a fake memory itself, and Jubey never acted like an Incubator because he never was one.
  • Make a Wish: He is an Incubator, after all. Until he gets this ability removed by Umika, anyway...
    • In truth, he never had this ability. At least, not after the Pleiades created him from one of Kyuubey's corpses.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is short for "Juuzoku suru Incubator": "The Incubator that follows us."
  • The Medic: The Pleiades use his unique power to purify their Soul Gems rather than having to use Grief Seeds. Or so they think. Their plan to build a gem-cleaning "program" into Jubey only made their Soul Gems look purified.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Unlike Kyubey, who views humans as livestock in comparison to his race, Jubey is actively proud of his duty under the Pleiades.

  • Mysterious Watcher: At the end of Chapter 3.
  • Numerical Theme Naming: In Japanese, "ju" is the number ten. "kyu" (as in "Kyubey") is the number nine.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Subverted. Though he's made from Kyubey, he's very expressive and seems to have a full range of emotions. The emotions, at least, come from the fact that he isn't an Incubator himself.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Rogue Drone: He's been cut off from the Incubator hive mind, and would be considered insane by their standards.
  • Slasher Smile: At the beginning of Chapter 4.
    • And another in Chapter 9.
    • Everywhere in Chapter 10.
  • Sleep Cute: With Toto in Chapter 4.
  • Weasel Mascot: With the power to purify The Corruption from Soul Gems. Or so it seems. The anime characters got a raw deal here.
    • The truth of the matter is that he doesn't have purification powers. Rather, the "purification" only makes the Soul Gems look clean on the surface. Nobody, not even Juubey, knew this until it was all too late.

Kyubey

You know who this is. Kyubey appears throughout the story as a Mysterious Watcher.
  • Arc Welder: His presence connects Kazumi Magica to Madoka Magica.
  • Benevolent Genie: As much as Kyubey can be, anyway.
    • When the original Michiru wishes for her grandmother to wake up until her natural lifespan runs out, Kyubey reminds her that she could cure her grandmother's illness instead and asks if she's really okay with not doing so, but ultimately grants her wish when she insists.
    • In the finale, he warns Kazumi about the "pointlessness" of her wish; she's wishing to be human, and from his perspective, she'll become a human and then immediately become a magical girl and thus no longer human. Once again, she insists and he agrees.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: That wasn't a cameo...
  • Face Framed in Shadow: Throughout Chapter 5, he only appears as a shadow or within shadows.
  • Foreshadowing & Fridge Horror: ""I wonder if you'll do so well this time?" Kyuubey knew about Kazumi being a clone
  • Greater-Scope Villain: He was the one behind both Airi and Kanna contracting.
  • Hijacked by Ganon: Twice. The first was with the whole "Yuuri"/Airi affair. The second was when Jubey is revealed to be an artificial being and Kyubey is revealed to be replaced by Jubey in everyone's memories - meaning he's also responsible for Kanna contracting. It's implied that he knew the Pleiades were plotting against him, and deliberately sought out Airi and Kanna to deal with the problem for him.
  • The Man Behind the Man: Besides his rigged Magical Girl system, he's also responsible for "Yuuri"/Airi's and Kanna's Roaring Rampage of Revenge.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He simply tells Airi the truth about what happened to Yuuri. Her desire for revenge does the rest. He does much the same with Kanna.
  • Mysterious Watcher: Several times. He calmly watches as Kazumi fights with her clones and gets stabbed without moving a muscle.
  • Ret-Gone: Due to a spell cast by the Pleaides, literally no-one in Asunaro remembers or notices the guy.

Souichirou Tachibana

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tachibanaparfaityuuriandairi.png
The man who released Kazumi from her suitcase after she became amnesiac, and a talented chef.

Misako Ishijima

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/455px_20120424175949bcd.jpg
A policewoman who set Tachibana up to take the fall for a bombing while under the control of an Evil Nut. She became a police officer in order to investigate magical girls because her school friend, a magical girl herself, disappeared.
  • The Cassandra: She believed Remi's little sister's story about magical girls, and when she tried to provide her superiors with evidence, she was mocked and ignored.
  • Muggle Best Friend: To Remi Shiina, though she was unaware of Remi's secret life as a magical girl until after she vanished.
  • One-Winged Angel: While possessed by an Evil Nut, she turns into a giant preying mantis.
  • Prim and Proper Bun: She fits the mold almost perfectly in her first appearance, though this lessens in her later ones. She's been wearing her hair this way since she was a schoolgirl.
  • Put on a Bus / What Happened to the Mouse?: She vanishes after being defeated by Kazumi, with no word as to what happened to her.
    • The Bus Came Back: She makes a major return in chapter 16, apparently without any memories of what happened to her at the Misaki house.
