Rave Warriors

    Haru Glory

The hero. Haru Glory came from a small island that's referred to as incredibly far out in the sticks and lacks knowledge of most any world history or geographical features. He's incredibly strong willed and noted for having a good heart. He was chosen to be the Rave Master who was to eliminate the Dark Bring.

Voiced by: Tomokazu Seki (JP), Yuri Lowenthal (EN), Víctor Ugarte (LA SP)

  • Accidental Pervert: He ends up in this kind of situations with Elie several times. He has accidentally looked up her skirt while he's crawling under a table (this was their first meeting in the manga), groped her and seen her naked twice.
  • All-Loving Hero: He's merciful, compassionate and very naive.
  • Always Save the Girl: Haru fights a youth-restored Shiba and is getting his ass handed to him. Haru tries to motivate himself by thinking about how the world will be doomed if he loses, but it doesn't work. Then he thinks about how if he loses, Elie will cry, then defeats his opponent in a single blow.
  • Back from the Dead: In the finale, the Star Memory revives Haru one year after his Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: As the Oracion Seis found out.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Inverted since he's the younger brother. Branch suffers a lot for harming Haru's sister.
  • Bishōnen: He's a lean young man, who's quite pretty.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Despite being a Technical Pacifist he often yells a lot in battle.
  • Bully Hunter: Started when he punished Branch for abusing Cattleya.
  • Calling Your Attacks: He always blurts out any change to his sword.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: He doesn't get to confess to Elie for thirty four volumes (she isn't in the first). When he does confess, it's a Dying Declaration of Love.
  • The Champion: During his duel with a youth-restored Shiba, Haru is forced to find his reason to fight and save the world. Thinking about his friends and family can't give him enough strength. His sword obtains overwhelming power only when he thinks about Elie and how much he wants to protect her from anything that makes her cry. It's then that Haru knows for sure Elie is the one he fights for.
  • The Chosen One: He was chosen to be the Rave Master who will save the world.
  • Covered in Scars: After his fight with Doryu, some of the scars from the battle remain on his body for the rest of the series.
  • Covert Pervert: He supports the idea of Elie wearing a very revealing dancing outfit.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Downplayed, but he has admitted that one of the reasons he hates Lucia is because he kissed Elie right in front of him.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: A large chunk of the manga's humor comes from stupid things that leave his mouth, but he's still the strongest character among the Rave Warriors.
  • Curtains Match the Window: He has grey eyes and grey hair.
  • Declaration of Protection: He declares that protecting Elie is his main motivation.
  • Determinator: It doesn't matter how much he gets beat up or how outclassed he is, he never quits.
  • Dub Name Change: Not Haru himself, but rather the Ten Commandments, which becomes the Ten Powers.
  • Dying Declaration of Love: He confesses his love to Elie right before she destroys the Endless with him inside. He comes Back from the Dead one year later.
  • Elemental Rivalry: As revealed by Ruby in the Doryu Arc, Haru is elementally aligned with Light, which makes him a nemesis of the Darkness-aligned Doryu and Lucia.
  • Eye Scream: Played for Laughs. Whenever Haru does accidental pervert things, Elie will sometimes stick her Tonfas in his eyes.
  • The Fettered: He has set morals that prevent him from going extreme against evil. To cite one specific example, he's very much opposed to needless killing.
  • The Hero: He is the central good guy working against Demon Card's evil activities.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In the final battle, Haru gets stuck inside Endless and asks Elie to destroy it with him inside. He gets better.
  • Hidden Depths: Has proven smarter than he looks when facing a villain's Motive Rant. In the face of Let's Blood Knight desires and talk of honor, he criticizes how meaningless honor is when fighting evil. When he hears Lucia's reasons for hating the world, he rightly points out that the world doesn't exist just for him and his suffering doesn't mean others don't have the right to live.
  • Hot-Blooded: He tends to run quickly into a fight. Runs in the family.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: He doesn't know how to use the Ten Commandments at first but he learns fast. One of the usual justifications for him learning the Ten Commandments' other forms is that the Rave of knowledge grants him innate wisdom just at the exact moment it's needed.
  • Ideal Hero: Caring, compassionate, idealistic and always ready to fight for what's right.
  • Idiot Hero: It's not too extreme, but he has some pretty dumb moments.
  • Instant Expert: Justified by the Rave of Wisdom.
  • Justice Will Prevail: He often preaches about peace and harmony for all.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Like Father, Like Son, as both he and his dad often rush into things blindly.
  • Legacy Character: The second one to inherit the title of Rave Master in the story.
  • Light Is Good; He is elementally aliened with Light, and his Morph Weapon has a form, "Million Suns".
  • Lucky Seven: Born on July 7.
  • Magnetic Hero: Almost no story arc passes without him acquiring one new team member, starting with Plue, then Griff, Elie, Musica, Shuda, Ruby, Sieg Hart, Evermary, Lazenby, and eventually Julius right before the final battle.
  • One-Man Army: A stand-alone example would be when he takes on 10,000 demons all by himself.
  • Powers via Weapon: He wields the Ten Commandments, a magical sword that has ten different forms which each give him a power, such as supersonic speed, increased power via anger, and holy light.
  • Refusal of the Call: Because his sister forbade it.
  • Royal Blood: His grandfather was the last king of Symphonia.
  • Second Love: To Elie. Her first love was Shiba.
  • She Is Not My Girlfriend: He tries denying there's anything more than friendship between him and Elie. He's not fooling anyone there.
  • Shonen Hair: He has spiky, messy hair, as befits a traditional Shonen protagonist.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: Everyone says the relationship between him and Elie is doomed. Thankfully, this is averted at the end.
  • Stock Shōnen Hero: Haru is energetic, naive and simpleminded sometimes to the point of stupidity, but still a determined, kind and compassionate guy with a strong sense of justice. He gathers many friends and allies throughout the story, some of which started as his enemies. He's very strong, but his true power comes from his desire to protect his friends and Elie.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Looks nearly identical to his dad.
  • Take a Third Option: Stab Elie or let the power of Etherion inside her destroy the world? Use Rune Save to seal Etherion.
  • Temporal Theme Naming: Hiro Mashima's lead always has a season based name. His means "spring."
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: Though demons and Demon Lords don't count.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Although it cannot be denied that Haru was already a badass in the series' beginning, it's when he believes that his dad is the one who leads Demon Card that he takes a whole new level of badass since he beats King's entire army single-handedly.
  • Unstoppable Rage:
    • When he uses Sacrifar and when Lucia almost kills Shuda.
    • How can one forget how he went apeshit on the Oracion Seis after they beat his friends so gruesomely?
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Believes in the inner good of everyone, even when they don't listen to reason.
  • Will They or Won't They?: Haru has strong feelings for Elie in the same way she has for him, not that any of them ever goes around to actually be open about they feel for each other. They Do; they marry at the end of the final chapter.

Even The Author Doesn't Know What He Is

Rave's bearer. Plue is a dog(?) with an unknown gender and age who travels with either the wielder of Etherion or the Rave (or both) and helps guide them. He doesn't do much as far as guiding them, but he does occasionally help either Haru or Elie when they're in a tight spot. He came dangerously close to being renamed Shabutaro by Haru and Cattleya.

The main female. Elie is a cheerful amnesiac girl who's just a little off and really likes bugs. She and Haru met in a racing track (a casino, in the anime) where she quickly fell for him because of his kind heart. She follows him around and is revealed to possess the ultimate magic, known as Etherion. She also bears a strong resemblance to Resha Valentine, who passed away fifty years ago, to everyone's continuous confusion.

  • Action Girl: She started actively fighting on her own the first time the team fought the Oracion Six, and as time goes on, she's ultimately strong enough to blow holes in Cosmic Horrors.
  • Agony of the Feet: Suffers this when she runs out into the badlands with no shoes on to go find a plant that could possibly cure a deflated Plue and doesn't realize she went barefoot until after smacking her foot on a rock and discovering and rubbing a ton of scrapes on her soles. When he finds her, Haru tears a sleeve and bandages her feet, then carries her piggyback. In the manga, she had on sandals that she took off in exhaustion from numerous failed attempts to re-inflate Plue, while in the anime, she was just too neglectful and hasty to put her boots on after leaving the hot spring and stayed barefoot.
  • Amnesiac Hero: Elie doesn't have memories of her past nor her identity. She's travelling to find clues of who she is. It's not a big surprise that she turns out to have a big connection to the Rave stones because she created them.
  • Amnesia Danger: Had she retained her memories she could have wiped every villain from existence rather than being kidnapped by each and every one (save King).
  • Anguished Declaration of Love: She tells Haru she loves him right before she's forced to blow him up along with the Endless.
  • Apocalypse Maiden: Sieg Hart initially tries to kill Elie because he deems the power of Etherion inside her body to be a threat to the world. This is later subverted; Elie's Etherion is the only thing that can destroy the Endless and save the world from it.
  • Babies Ever After: The very last scene of the manga is Haru and Elie getting married. This is followed up by us seeing their son, Levin in a short and humorous epilogue with Nakajima involved and the older couple comes back with a present for him to find he's been fully converted into Nakajima's disciple.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her most common outfit exposes her belly.
  • Belly Dancer: During a dance contest and during her days as Resha.
  • Blessed with Suck: Etherion, until she regains control of it.
  • Born Lucky: She's usually in charge of winning money for the group through gambling because she has such good luck that the best way to gain money fast is to set her loose in a casino.
  • Break the Cutie: She's a heck of a lot more prone to tears after getting back her memory.
  • The Chick: The cute and bubbly girl of the main team who serves as the love interest of The Hero and recurring Damsel in Distress. She also has incredibly strong magical powers, but lacks control over them until very late into the story.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Doesn't like seeing Haru with other girls.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: It's hard to understand her strange ideas and behaviors. For example, when Plue deflated, what was the solution she came up with? Let's bury him, that'll help. He needs dirt.
  • Deuteragonist: Although her forgotten memories make up a huge bulk of the story's past, it's ultimately Haru who keeps the story going in the present.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: In response to Lucia's And Now You Must Marry Me in the finale, and her powers are sealed by an Anti-Magic bracelet, she tries shooting him the face. Even though she sees she can't hurt him, she still defies him and spits in his face, knowing fully well how easily he could kill her.
  • Dual Tonfas: With built-in guns.
  • Dude Magnet: Haru, Shiba back when she was Resha and many other males are instantly drawn to her. Unfortunately, it also gets negative attention. To clarify, Lucia when he becomes the ruler of the original world wants her to be his bride and Ogre wants her to be his plaything.
  • Extraordinarily Empowered Girl: Elie posesses an unbelievably powerful magic force called Etherion inside of her.
  • Fear of Thunder: Elie has a paralyzing fear of storms. It's Sieg's fault; the first thing Elie remembers after getting amnesia is Sieg almost killing her by electrocution.
  • First Girl Wins: Elie is the first to become Haru's travelling companion. She's Haru's indisputable main love interest throughout the entire series and she gets married and has a son with him at the end.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: She had one of sorts with Haru. Haru met her as Resha back in Symphonia when he traveled back in time.
  • Genki Girl: She's continually cheerful and optimistic.
  • Ghost Memory: Assumed by everyone after Elie reveals she has a connection to Resha Valentine's memories, but they are actually her own memories.
  • Given Name Reveal: "Elie" is a nickname she gave to herself because she doesn't remember her real name. Her true name is finally revealed towards the end of the story; Resha Valentine.
  • Groin Attack: On Julius.
  • Guns Are Useless: She has two tonfas with built in guns. At best they cause Amusing Injuries.
  • I Am Who?: Elie is suffering from the effects of Etherion that have obliterated her true memories. She is actually a girl named Resha Valentine who was blasted forward into the future when this power ran wild.
  • Kill the Ones You Love: In the final battle, she's forced to destroy the Endless with Haru inside. Fortunately, Haru is revived by the Star Memory.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Having no idea who she is or how to use her magic doesn't stop her from reading a dead language.
  • MacGuffin Super Person: Many villains seek her for her power. For example, Doryu wants her for her Etherion power and Hardner wants wants to merge with her in order to merge with the Endless.
  • Magic Staff: Gets one in the Blue Guardians arc, to which she uses it to harness her true power.
  • Meaningful Name: ELIE 3173. It's initially thought to be a test subject mark (humorously, the person who thinks this has a name that flips to make a number too) but is actually the coordinates for her empty grave.
  • Ms. Fanservice: As if her short skirt, long legs, and tank top revealing her full arms and most of her stomach that she wears as her casual outfit weren't enough, Episode 19 has her flat out dressing in a bikini. Lessened once Belinka, Celia and Julia came along and took some of the load off her.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: When she remembers she's Resha, Elie nearly breaks down from guilt at seeing all of the Symphonia kingdom from the past grieving over Resha's "death".
  • Never Got to Say Goodbye: Elie arrives at the end of Haru's duel with Shiba and Shiba uses his last bit of strength to hug Elie, who he has realized is Resha. Elie doesn't remember her true identity until after she travels to the past. The overwhelming regret over never apologizing to Shiba for making him think she died nearly drives Elie to reveal herself to the Shiba from the past, but Haru stops her so history doesn't change.
  • Older Than She Looks: Elie is the same Resha Valentine who supposedly died 50 years ago. How exactly she stayed young for decades is never explained.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: She doesn't remember her true name; Elie is the name she chose to call herself based on the tattoo located on her upper arm. Near the end of the series, her true name is revealed (or confirmed) to be Resha Valentine. She changed her name to Elie after she was asked to fake her death and hide for 50 years. Since she abandoned her old identity 50 years ago, she wants her friends to continue calling her Elie even after remembering her entire past.
  • Plucky Girl: Elie's best feature is her spunkiness.
  • Power Incontinence: Elie, as Resha, did not learn to use Etherion willingly. Etherion was infused in her as part of an experiment to make her an all-powerful force that could oppose the Dark Bring, but gave her so much power that she couldn't properly control it. Etherion surged wildly and went into a catastrophic meltdown that ultimately catapulted her 50 years forward in time and erased her memories. When others find out she has this magic inside her, Elie continues to be unable to control it, and when it gets used in full once more, it threatens to surge again.
  • Protectorate: The person Haru wants to protect the most is Elie.
  • Quest for Identity: At first, she travels in order to find her memory. However, later she begins to fear recovering her memory, knowing she might become a different person.
  • Sacred First Kiss: Lucia stole hers, leaving her in tears.
  • Shorttank: A perfect example. Elie is the feisty female lead in a Shōnen series, wears a tanktop and a miniskirt, and can fire rounds of bullets with her tonfa blasters.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: She quickly fell for Haru because of his kind heart.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: Everyone says the relationship between her and Haru is doomed. Averted at the end.
  • Story-Breaker Power: Etherion is the ultimate magic. If she knew how to use it from the start, there would be no point in having other Rave Warriors.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: When she remembers a childhood memory of her parents, we see that Elie takes after her mother especially when Elie had longer hair as Resha.
  • The Three Faces of Eve: The bubbly, simple-minded Child of the female Rave Warriors.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: Elie's uncanny resemblance to the deceased creator of the Rave stones, Resha Valentine, is one of the biggest mysteries in the series. Near the end of the series, she finally remembers that she is Resha Valentine.
  • Took a Level in Badass: During the second half of the series, she becomes a far more powerful fighter than she was throughout the first.
  • Town Girls: The Neither. Elie is girlier than Julia yet somewhat of a tomboy when compared to Belnika.
  • Trauma-Induced Amnesia: In the epilogue of the manga, Elie once again lost her memory due to the trauma of being forced to kill the man she loves to save the world. Her memory immediately returns when Haru is brought back safely by the Star Memory.
  • Trigger Happy: At least in the beginning, she usually takes out her tonfas when she gets angry.
  • Two Aliases, One Character: In the final volumes, Elie and Resha Valentine are revealed to be one and the same.
  • Will They or Won't They?: She and Haru spend the entire manga completely unable of coming around and being open about their obvious attraction to each other. They Do; we see their wedding in the final page of the manga.
  • You Are Number 6: Sieg claims she is an experiment in an attempt to bring back Resha's Etherion and the tattoo in her arm doesn't mean Elie, but Test Subject 3173. However, turns out Sieg was wrong.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: Her home country Symphonia no longer exists.

We don't know what he is either, but at least he know he has a family

A strange blue creature originally recruited by Elie to help her and Haru reach the mountain they suspect a Rave stone to be at. He quickly becomes a member of the main cast, and is supposed to be very skilled at map making. His hobby is peeping on Elie. Every other character is better than him.

  • The Load: Invaluable as he is as a cartographer and navigator, he is completely useless in a fight.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: Like Plue, we never learn what kind of creature he is.
  • Normally, I Would Be Dead Now: Being sliced in two does normally kill one. What kind of bizarre natural selection gives someone the ability to become two people after being sliced in two? What kind of bizarre natural selection makes anything like Griff, for that matter.
  • The Peeping Tom: Downplayed in the dub, where he's more obsessed with Master Plue.

    Hamrio Musica
Silver Claimer and Chick Magnet

A silver claimer (someone who can manipulate silver) and former gang leader who teams up with Haru after reuniting with his grandfather. He a close friend of Haru's and one of the more capable fighters in the crew, wielding a spear. He eventually strikes up a relation with one of the Demon Card generals, but it didn't work out.

  • Deadpan Snarker: Very often when talking to Haru.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: Thanks to Reina's death.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: He can change the shape of silver (and later, any metal) at will.
  • Heartbroken Badass: After Reina dies.
  • I Call It "Vera": After Reina dies, some of her silver merges with his, and he occasionally refers to his spear by her name.
  • Impossible Thief: He somehow steals Nagisa's panties while she's still wearing them and she doesn't even notice it for a while.
  • The Lancer: To Haru, until Let and Shuda reduced him to the fourth wheel. Regains the role near the end as he forges for Haru the final form of his Ten Commandments, and later helps him on his way to the final battle.
  • Last-Name Basis: Only his grandfather calls him Hamrio.
  • Likes Older Women: Reina is older than him.
  • Morph Weapon: The silver he carries with him.
  • The Mourning After: After Reina dies, he has no serious romantic relationship with anyone else for the rest of the story.
  • Panty Thief: He steals Nagisa's panties when they first meet. He also steals her bra a couple of times.
  • Sadistic Choice: Blow up your friends, or blow up the only woman you'll ever have a relationship with.

    Let Dahaka
Badass Dragon Dude

Originally he was only interested in a challenging fight, and working for King as part of his Quirky Mini Boss Squad in order to find them. Let goes over to Haru's side after being awed by Haru's pure heart and desire to protect the whole world.

Voiced by: Takehiro Murozono (JP), Doug Stone (EN), Ricardo Bautista (LA SP)

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In the manga and Fairy Tail crossover his hair is white. In the anime, it's blond.
  • Anime Hair: Super Saiyan 3 style no less, until he became human. Even after he became human, his hair still looks like a Super Saiyan's one.
  • Battle Couple: Once he reverts his girlfriend Julia back to her human form, she's revealed to be as much of a badass as Let and they often fight together.
  • Bishōnen Line: A heroic example, undergoing a ritual to banish his reptilian nature to achieve greater strength. This is later inverted in the finale as he becomes more draconic till he becomes a full dragon to defeat his enemy.
  • Blood Knight: Initially as a member of King's Quirky Mini Boss Squad. Downplayed when he became a Technical Pacifist like the rest of the group, but still has shades of it.
  • Breath Weapon: He can breathe fire.
  • Chastity Couple: Let and Julia look and act like they're Vitriolic Best Buds most of the time (or Julia acts this way, and Let acts like the team grandpa). While a relationship is there if you know to look for it, you only know to look because each has a single occasion where they openly say there's something between them.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: He was friends with his girlfriend Julia since childhood.
  • The Comically Serious: Let is The Stoic and suffers from Honor Before Reason at times. So of course his girlfriend is a hard drinking party girl.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Julia knows that Let can get violently jealous and usually warns any man who makes a pass at her, although it's more of an Informed Attribute.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Several suicide attacks. He manages to use three. In a story with lots of death, he's good at slipping around it.
  • Draconic Humanoid: At least initially. All members of the Dragon Race go through a phase where they spend some time in this state, before either conquering or succumbing to their inner dragon. Let conquers his and becomes more human-like in appearance afterward. His former flame, Julia, succumbed, and ended up a full-fledged dragon. At least until he cures her.
  • Elemental Baggage: Fire-breathing.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Introduced as part of King's Quirky Mini Boss Squad.
  • Insistent Terminology: He's dragon race, not an alligator, and definitely not a human.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: Even working for King, he refuses to use a Dark Bring and prefers hand-to-hand combat, though he's not above breathing fire on occasion.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Most of the cast is better about it.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is based off of Malet, which Hiro Mashima chose to describe his fighting style.
  • Noble Demon: In the beginning, he claims he's only traveling with Haru and co so he can study their weaknesses for the next time they fight. He grows out of this pretty quick though.
  • One-Winged Angel: A heroic one in which he crosses the Bishōnen Line into the form he remains in the rest of the series. He temporarily becomes a huge dragon in the finale.
  • Opposites Attract: Let is calm, collected and cool-headed, while his girlfriend Julia is loud, brash, and hot-headed.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: He's not nearly as kill happy as most of the Demon Card, only interested in fights prior his Heel–Face Turn.
  • Redemption Promotion: While he was by no means weak in his debut, after his Heel–Face Turn, he manages to win a fight against Jegan, whom was stronger than him for most of his life note  and would have won his fight with Hardner if not for Hardner's Healing Factor and he still managed to deal enough damage to help Haru win.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni:
    • Two ways, the more pragmatic and level headed to Haru's brash impulsiveness and Musica's more frivolous behavior.
    • Even to his own girlfriend, who's more hot-tempered than he is.
  • Scars Are Forever: From Jegan's attack, he initially had it covered under a headband prior his crossing the Bishōnen Line.
  • Sssnake Talk: In the dub, initially prior his Bishōnen Line, when he talks normally.
  • The Stoic: Early on, he shows little to no emotion. He becomes Not So Stoic after becoming human.
  • We Used to Be Friends: With Jegan. However, Jegan denies that they were friends in the first place.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Manga only. Before his Heel–Face Turn. Originally he was this.

Rich Penguin(???) Sorcerer

A penguin(?) who inherited a large sum of money and giant floating casino from his late father. He's dismayed to learn he's been funding a criminal origination and ends up going to Haru for protection when he refuses to continue giving Doryu money. He becomes their first safe magic user after Sieg reveals he has the gift, but he's generally considered useless by the cast.

  • I Just Want to Be Special: He becomes ecstatic when Sieg Hart tells him he has the potential to be a mage. He doesn't disappoint.
  • Improbable Weapon User: A bell that can turn into a sword. It originally belonged to Dalmatian, one of the Four Knights of the Blue Sky.
  • The Millstone: At times due to his inability to lie and his annoying tendency to blurt out whatever he's thinking, alerting the bad guys.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: When he realizes that the people he thought were his best friends, like Doryu, were criminals who were using him to fund their operations.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: He doesn't look like a penguin, like a pig-bird at least.
  • Rich in Dollars, Poor in Sense: He's not good at keeping track of his money.
  • Secret Keeper: Haru trusts him enough to tell him who the next Rave Master will be after Haru dies. Amazingly, he keeps this secret.
  • Talking Animal: A penguin?
  • Took a Level in Badass: Once he learns magic.
  • Verbal Tic: "Poyo!" And it's contagious. When the gang first encounters it several try to imitate it. At one point, even The Comically Serious Sieg uses it.

    Julia Line Dragoon
Badass Dragon Lady

Let's polar-opposite girlfriend. She spent a good deal of time stuck as a dragon under Jegan's control, but once she changes back she joins Haru's team. She's the most violent member of the team, especially when it comes to her boyfriend, but she also takes on a somewhat motherly role. She also really wants Haru and Elie to hook up.

Voiced by: Kyoko Namekawa (JP - Fairy Tail x RAVE OVA)

  • Action Girl: She beats the crap out of people a lot more than her boyfriend. And especially her boyfriend.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Her race go through a phase where they become Draconic Humanoids and must go to a temple to perform a ritual and return to human form. Julia performed the ritual outside a temple and got trapped in the form of a giant dragon.
  • Battle Couple: With Let. They're romantically involved and they also fight together once they're reunited.
  • Boobs of Steel: One of the best stacked and perhaps the toughest female in the series.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: She spends a long time as a dragon under Jegan's control.
  • Breath Weapon: Like Let, she can breathe Fire. Most notably, it's the only Dragon Race technique she ever uses.
  • Characterization Marches On: For a long while, she was portrayed as the Girl Next Door to Let. Cue to the Blue Guardians Arc, where this is changed to more of an Action Girl with a drinking problem and no problem with her nudity. Let most likely heavily idealized her and her memory. It also helps that we only get brief glimpses of his memories of her.
  • Chastity Couple: Let and Julia look and act like they're Vitriolic Best Buds most of the time (or Julia acts this way, and Let acts like the team grandpa). While a relationship is there if you know to look for it, you only know to look because each has a single occasion where they openly say there's something between them.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: She and Let have been close since they were kids and became a couple when they got older.
  • Cool Big Sis: To the Rave Master team.
  • Cool Pet: Her dragon form is trapped under Jegan's control till she's restored to human form by Let.
  • Death Faked for You: Let believed Julia was killed by Jegan, but the truth is Jegan only made someone else's corpse look like Julia so Let would give up on her and Jegan could have Julia to himself. It's when Let meets Jegan again that he finds out Julia is still alive, but trapped in the form of a dragon.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: When Julia faces off with an especially perverted member of the Six Guard who tries to submit her to Defeat by Modesty by using his powers to blow apart her clothing, Julia rips off the remains of her own bra to prove the point that modesty will not defeat her. She then proceeds to kick his ass with no regard to her nudity.
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl: She once gets drunk enough to use a wine bottle like a walkie-talkie.
  • Intimate Healing: After Let defeats Jegan and Julia returns to her human form with a elixir, Julia saves Let by sharing the elixir with him through a kiss.
  • Kiss of Death: How she finishes off Jiero, with a fire breath right down her throat.
  • The Lad-ette: Noisy, brash, aggressive, and a bigger drinker than any of the guys in the main team.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She's very attractive and also a Shameless Fanservice Girl who ends up in skimpy bikinis more than once.
  • Opposites Attract: Julia is loud, brash, and hot-headed, while her boyfriend Let is calm, collected and cool-headed.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Her dragon form is that of a massive, dark-colored dragon with six wings, horns and fins on the sides of her head. She's also mindless and under the control of Jegan, at the time.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Julia doesn't give a damn about others seeing her naked.
  • Shipper on Deck: As stated above, for Haru and Elie.
  • Taking You with Me: Attempted during one fight against an opponent who could turn himself into acid. When her regular attacks don't work, she resorts to throw herself and him out of the airship they were fighting on and tricks him into liquefying that he evaporates into nothing while she fully intended to fall to her death. Luckily a nearby dragon happened to show up and save her.
  • The Three Faces of Eve: The fiery and shameless Seductress of the female Rave Warriors.
  • Town Girls: The Butch. To contrast Belnika and Elie, Julia is definitely more action-prone, rough and violent.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Her style is more akin to grappling rather then martial arts that her boyfriend uses.

Magic Girl No. 2

A sweet, somewhat timid girl who underwent experiments in order to gain Etherion. They failed, but she acquired some powerful magic nonetheless. Her specialty is healing. She was duped into working for Hardner but quickly switches to Haru's side.

  • 11th-Hour Ranger: She joins the Rave Warriors in the last parts of the manga.
  • Anti-Magic: Her real ability, aside from the Etherion-like ones she first displayed.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She goes ballistic on Jiero, one of the Four Demon Kings.
  • Celibate Heroine: She always spurns Musica's advances, which kind of creep her out. She does take a liking to Haru, though.
  • Covert Pervert: Despite having many Proper Lady traits and being a bit shy in general, she certainly isn't above staring intently at Haru's crotch when he gets naked the evening before the final battle.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Blue hair to match her blue eyes.
  • Eating the Eye Candy: When a drunk Haru strips down in front of everyone, Belnika can't keep her eyes off of his exposed crotch.
  • The Medic: She's also good with healing magic. In her first encounter with Haru she provides him a cloth band that placates the wounds he got from Doryuu.
  • Shy Blue-Haired Girl: At first she is shy but becomes assertive later on.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: A Nice Girl but don't forget her magic.
  • Power at a Price: Her magic was obtained through rigorous training that they heavily imply was incredibly painful, but her magic is pretty sweet.
  • The Three Faces of Eve: The demure and well-mannered Wife of the female Rave Warriors.
  • Town Girls: The Femme. Belnika is much more traditionally feminine and ladylike than Elie and Julia could ever be.


Support Characters

    Cattleya Glory
Cool Big Sis

Haru's older sister and mother figure. She has little actual role in the series, but is Haru's initial motivation to train and it's implied that she may have forced a little of his nice personality upon him.

Voiced by: Satsuki Yukino (JP), Cindy Robinson (EN)

  • Cool Big Sis: To Haru.
  • My Beloved Smother: You have to be pretty smothering to forbid The Chosen One from saving the world. She's still sympathetic because both their parents left home and neither of them returned alive; she was afraid to lose the only family she had left.
  • My Girl Back Home: She's Haru's sister and only family back at his hometown in Garage Island. Once Haru must leave home to set out on his journey after becoming the new Rave Master, she stays behind waiting for him to return.
  • Offscreen Romance: She and Shuda became an item during the time he lived with her at Garage Island. We only learn this when Haru's group sees Cattleya undressing in Shuda's memories and Shuda tells Haru he can call him "older brother" now.
  • Promotion to Parent: She took over raising her little brother after their dad vanished and their mother left to find him and came back in a body bag.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She looks like her mom, but with a slightly different hairstyle.

    Shiba Roses
The First Rave Master

The previous Rave Master. He was close to Resha Valentine, the creator of Rave, so when she gave her life to make them she made them work for him. He fought in the war against Dark Bring and failed to destroy the ultimate one at the very end of the battle, leading to Haru having to pick up where he left off fifty years later.

Voiced by: Tomomichi Nishimura (JP), Alan Shearman (EN)
Young Shiba: Koichi Tochika (JP), Steve Blum (EN)

  • Animal Theme Naming: Named after a dog breed, the Shiba Inu, like the Knights of the Blue Sky.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: In his youth, in fact his recklessness when using the Ten Commandants' 9th form which temporarily changes Haru into a berserker is the reason why Haru can't ever properly use it being the kind of person he is.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: He dies hugging Elie, having recognized her as Resha.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: With Haru, in a sense. He met him in a battlefield after Haru had accidentally travelled back in time.
  • Fountain of Youth: He uses a potion that makes him young, but accelerates his fatal condition, just so he can fight Haru at his prime.
  • A Good Way to Die: He dies after his duel with Haru, knowing that Haru will take care of everything. He also meets Resha again as Elie and dies happily in her embrace.

  • Hero of Another Story: He was The Hero in The Great Off Screen War prior to the series.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: He really was; like some knight from a chivalric cycle.
  • Lady and Knight: He and Resha shared this dynamic. He was her motivation as he became a fighter to protect her and took up Rave in her memory.
  • Love at First Sight: He fell in love with Resha the moment he first saw her when she was dancing in a park.
  • Mr. Exposition: He's the first to explain to Haru a good deal of things about his quest and Ten Commandments. He also explains his past to Cattleya and Gemma.
  • Normally, I Would Be Dead Now: He was actually supposed to die in the first chapter when a cannon shot him in the gut, but Hiro Mashima didn't want any deaths that early.
  • Passing the Torch: Twice. When he sees Haru able to use the Rave stone, he realizes he's the Rave Master successor and gives up his sword and power to him. Later, after Haru gains near all the stones, Shiba tests him one last time by taking a potion that restores his youth and fighting him to see if he truly has the resolve to finish the quest. When Haru indeed proves his worth, he passes on, content that the world is in good hands.
  • Retired Badass: Subverted as he becomes more of an Mr. Exposition by the start of the series.

    Resha Valentine 

The creator of Rave and Plue's original owner who had the power of Etherion. She supposedly died during the Rave's creation ritual. She bears a mysterious resemblance to Elie.

Voiced by: Ayako Kawasumi (JP), Michelle Ruff (EN), Mariana Ortiz (LA SP)

  • All-Loving Heroine: She was a sweet girl who wished for peace and happiness and was loved by everyone around her.
  • Bathing Beauty: She liked taking baths many times a day. Curiously, so does Elie...
  • Be My Valentine: Her last name was Valentine, befitting her sweet and loving personality.
  • Belly Dancer: Before she was taken to live at Symphonia's castle, Resha made a living as a dancer. She admitted to Shiba that she felt embarrassed to perform wearing practically nothing but her underwear, but she came to enjoy it.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: One of her dreams was to become a bug.
  • Damsel in Distress: The time travel arc includes an incident where Resha is kidnapped and Haru needs to save her, although without letting Resha see him so the past doesn't change.
  • Ethereal White Dress: Shiba's flashback depicts Resha wearing a white dress. This goes along with her role as a supposed Posthumous Character and creator of the Rave stones.
  • Faking the Dead: She didn't actually die. She faked her death and became Elie in order to avoid kidnappers and make sure she would be alive by the time the Endless appeared 50 years later.
  • Genki Girl: She was just as bubbly and energetic as Elie.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: History says that Resha sacrificed her life by using all her energy to create the Rave stones. Subverted; she didn't die creating Rave. That was a ruse so she could take a new identity and hide for 50 years.
  • Important Haircut: Resha cuts her long hair when she becomes Elie to better cast aside her previous identity.
  • Jumped at the Call: Having been told that her magic was the key to defeating the Dark Bring, she willingly served the king of Symphonia. Only Shiba had a glimpse of her own personal desires.

  • Randomly Gifted: Etherion is a power Resha was born with. Genetics nor anything else had something to do with it.
  • Rapunzel Hair: The only thing that sets her apart from Elie is that Resha had long hair reaching down to about her hips.
  • Sent Into Hiding: The king of Symphonia, Haru's grandfather, decided to lie to the world about Resha's death and hide her for 50 years until it was time for the Endless to appear.
  • That Woman Is Dead: When she decides to fake her own death and cuts her hair, she declares that from that day on Resha Valentine is dead and she will be known as Elie.
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: She was an innocent and pure-hearted young girl who was beloved by everyone she knew. Her untimely death caused by creating the Rave stones made everyone in the Symphonia kingdom cry disconsolately. Subverted; Resha didn't die from the conflict. She's still around.

    Marakia Symphonia 

The deceased King of the former Symphonian Kingdom. His real name is Glory Karm.

  • Facial Markings: He tattooed his face so no one would recognize him after he left Symphonia with Resha/Elie.

    Knights of the Blue Sky 

Deerhound, Clea Maltese, Master Dalmatian and Alpine Spaniel, the four strongest fighters of Symphonia that assisted Shiba during the war and died. Later they became the Guardians of the Rave stones. Alpine Spaniel is the only one who is still alive.

  • Bishōnen: Alpine Spaniel. Even in the current day, he still looks pretty good under the beard.
  • Blade on a Stick: Alpine's weapon of choice, a long cross-spear.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Deerhound when he was alive. His Bio states that he "loved war and hated peace."
  • Breast Attack: In the Knight's final battle, Clea dies after taking several arrows for Shiba, at least three of which in the breasts.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: In the flashback chapters, Clea delivers one to Shiba, right after he boasted about his collection of victories and claimed that he would have gone easy on her.
  • Five-Man Band: Back in the past, with Shiba as The Hero, Alpine as The Lancer, Deerhound as the Big Guy, Dalmatian as the Smart Guy and Clea as The Chick.
  • Humanoid Female Animal: While Deerhound and Dalmatian are more animal-like than human, Clea still retain most of her humanoid body shape, including glaring Non-Mammal Mammaries. Essentially she looks like an ordinary woman with a beak and feathery forearms.
  • In the Back: In a short flashback, we see that both Dalmatian and Alpine died this way, the former by sword and the latter by arrows. Except that Alpine survived.
  • Knife Nut: Clea's shortswords, "Las Holy".
  • Magic Knight: Implied by Dalmatian, the strategist of the foursome with a magic-enpowered sword as his weapon of choice, which is capable of magic.

Badass Pyromaniac Swordsman

The first general of Demon Card that Haru encounters. He joined after Haru's father one of DC's founders got him interested, and has a tedious friendship with Gale. He helps out but doesn't seem to want to be included as part of the inner circle. He's also dating Haru's sister.

Voiced by: Toshihiko Seki (JP), Crispin Freeman (EN)

  • An Arm and a Leg: Chooses to cut off his left hand rather than let Haru save him. Near the end of the manga, he's about to cut off his right after having found himself in the near-exact same position again, until Haru gives him a reason to live.
  • Anime Hair: He's the Vegeta of this universe.
  • Artificial Limbs: After he removes the real one.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Sports pretty large, saw-like eyebrows, as commented once by Musica.

  • Cool Sword: Gale Glory gave him one after they fought and he lost.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Dishes out one to Haru in their first fight until Haru breaks his Dark Bring and leaves.

  • Disc-One Final Boss: Appears to be one but then becomes The Dragon.
  • Discard and Draw: Gave his old Dark Bring to one of his underlings at the start of the series because he was receiving a better one. After it was broken by Haru, he replaced it with another new one by the time they fought again.
  • Fiery Redhead: A hot blooded redhead with appropriate fire-based powers.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: His very first Dark Bring, which he gave to Favel, allowed him to turn his body into shiny metal.
  • Four-Star Badass: He is a general in the Demon Card.
  • I Gave My Word: He sticks by Haru because Gale tearfully made him swear he would protect his son.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Though not in the sense of projectile aiming, his Dark Bring does require this kind of ability.
  • Life-or-Limb Decision: It isn't really that situation, and he opts for neither, but it reminds you of one.
  • No One Should Survive That: We still don't know how he survived a 1000+ foot fall after lopping of an arm. Leads too...
  • Normally, I Would Be Dead Now: The most we get of anyone mentioning this is scolding Sieg for sounding disappointed when saying he thought Shuda died.
  • Offscreen Romance: After the death of Haru's father Gale, Shuda travels to Garage Island to deliver the news to Haru's sister Cattleya. The next time we see him, Shuda shows Haru's group fragments of his memories with Cattleya which end with Cattleya in her underwear and Shuda telling Haru they're brothers-in-law now.
  • Playing with Fire: His Dark Brings' power. The first created flames, the second created explosions.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: And are the king of ballet.
  • Serious Business: For him, dancing contests. To an almost ridicolous degree.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: Easily defeats Haru in their first encounter, only leaving when his Dark Bring broke and probably could have still won if he kept fighting.

    Galein Musica

An X-ty something year old smith who originally forged the legendary Ten Powers. When one of his swords was used to slaughter his family he gave up on sword-making and became a lapdog for Demon Card. He gets better once Haru reunites him with his Not Quite Dead grandson.

Voiced by: Yuichi Nagashima (JP), Ralph Votrian (EN)

  • And This Is for...: Slaughtering my entire family.
  • Cynicism Catalyst:
    • Losing his family to one of his own weapons made him give up on being a swordsmith.

  • Passing the Torch: After Haru obtains the last Rave, he gives his grandson his smithing journal.
  • Unobtainium: He used metal from a shooting star to make his extra special swords.

Haru's long missing father. He has the same strong sense of justice as Haru.

Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa (JP), Steve Bulen (EN)

  • Action Dad: Haru's father, and one of the warriors strong enough to deal with King, the leader of Demon Card and one of the strongest people in the world.
  • Alliterative Name: Gale Glory. Without the middle name Symphonia.
  • The Atoner: Just a little, though.
  • Badass Normal: Doesn't have any powers or magic weapons, but even without that when he appears he's a much stronger fighter than his son.
  • Chekhov M.I.A.: Missing for 10 years because King made him a living bomb.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Dealt one to Shuda prior to the series until Shuda realized he could never beat him.
  • Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You: He never returned home because King put a magical bomb inside his body.
  • Disappeared Dad: Twofold with Haru: first, he left Garage Island to stop King and Demon Card, and later when he dies to save his son.

  • Happily Adopted: Knowing he would die soon, Gale's father Marakia left him with a man named Ever Mary who raised him well.

  • Red Herring: Initially implied to be a villain before his real nature is revealed.
  • Scars Are Forever: He got a large scar across his face after being cut by King.

  • Why Am I Ticking?: King put a magical bomb inside his body.

    Sakura Glory 
Haru's and Cattleya's mother.

Voiced by: Shoko Kikuchi (JP), Mona Marshall (EN)

    General Jade

One of the four generals for The Empire who do virtually nothing other than act as Mr. Exposition. Jade stands out because he's the only one that doesn't get killed or turn out to be a mole. He never gets to meet Haru, but spends a good chunk of the story trying anyway. He's also Jegan's older brother.

Voiced by: Takehiro Murozono (JP)

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He was one of the four generals.
  • Facial Markings: The same as Jegan, only on his opposite eye.
  • Long-Lost Relative: To Jegan.
  • Mr. Exposition: His main contribution to the story, especially when he talks to the other generals about the three gangs formed after Demon Card's decline.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Go through the official translation and count the different names and spelling he gets. He's actually called Sieg initially, and they change the spelling on the next page.

    Sieg Hart

The first (and for a long while, only) sorcerer introduced. Sieg Hart is a magic swordsman obsessed with protecting time, which comes from being raised in a town with the same obsession. He's initially introduced as an assassin after both Elie and King, but after Haru stops Elie's Etherion without killing her Sieg has a change of heart and makes it his goal to protect Elie at all costs.

Voiced by: Masami Kikuchi (JP), Crispin Freeman (EN), Salvador Nájar (LA SP)

  • Agony Beam: His usage of Thunder Magic on Elie, but also the nameless one deservingly used to put Igor Kilkira to his place.
  • The Archmage: Milz declares him one after he manages to fight Haja for a week and win, but Sieg claims that Haja's master Shakuma is even stronger.
  • Breakout Character: So popular that his design was reused no less than three times in another series, once as a major character.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: By the end of the series he's been everyone's enemy at some point. It's a little hard to notice because he's usually allied to multiple groups, but Shuda calls him out on it at one point.
  • The Comically Serious: Who didn't laugh when he said "poyo" during Ruby's explanation of magic?
  • Cool Sword: Has one made of raw magic. It is later revealed to be called "Take Over" and being able to drain the magic energy of the people it cuts, replenishing the user's own mana and allowing him to defeat the whole village of wizards he came from!
  • Curtains Match the Window: A mysterious blue haired pretty boy, so popular it was used...thrice in Hiro Mashima's following series!
  • Dying Alone: He dies Trapped in the Past and in order to not alter history, he spends the rest of his life protecting Resha/Elie's grave until he becomes a skeleton.
  • Elemental Powers: The only thing known about him for a while. He's even called "Elemental Master Sieg Hart".
    • Blow You Away: The first shown in the present, which allows him to fly and was used to defeat Haja.
    • Shock and Awe: The reason why Elie knows him at first as the "Lightning Man".
    • Playing with Fire: Was also shown casting a stream of flames at Haru.
    • Poisonous Person: The element of Poison, which he uses to try to kill Elie.
    • Light 'em Up/Casting a Shadow: The element of Space, which seems to be his specialty for the rest of the series.
  • Facial Markings: Which, probably unbeknownst to him, detail his future.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He sends Haru and Elie back to the present, but he has to stay Trapped in the Past.
  • Instant Runes: Which is supposed to be tricky.
  • Normally, I Would Be Dead Now: He can be pretty active for a guy who just got his gut ripped open.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: He has a magic battle that lasts seven whole days. Only the first couple spells and the last strikes of the match are shown.
  • One-Man Army: When Haja turns his village against him and he escapes. He takes on the whole village by himself. Even better, he did it without a single fatality using nothing but a sword and low magic power. To be fair, the sword absorbed the villagers' mana.
  • Post-Victory Collapse: After his fight with Haja. In his defense, he went a whole week without food or water, since it's the most ridiculously long fight in the series.
  • Redemption Equals Death: Death came late for him, though.
  • The Stoic: Starts out as a single-minded "protector of time," whose sole purpose was to kill Elie.
  • Tomato Surprise: Remember that skeleton in Symphonia? That was Sieg who was left Trapped in the Past.
  • Trapped in the Past: He stays trapped 50 years in the past after sending Haru and Elie back to the present. He decides not do anything, not even eat, in order to not alter history in the slightest. (Not that he doesn't go and talk to someone immediately after, but at that point he realized he was supposed to, to make history play out the way it did.) Not to mention pulling off a Gondor Calls for Aid for 50 years down the road.
  • Unreliable Expositor: Basically all the information he gives Elie about her identity turns out to be wrong.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He's only the first notable example.


A girl who claims to be descendant of Clea Maltese and the leader of Ray Barrier City. She is actually Solasido's sister. Both of them along with Fua one of the cities warriors assisted the Rave Warriors during the battle at the Tower of Din.

  • Would Hit a Girl: No qualms at all about slapping the female members of Haru's groups when they mess up (though Julia dodges) and even calls out Haru, Musica and Let when they're uneasy with attacking Leopard.


A resident kid of Sieg's village who also didn't believe in their mission to protect the timeline by any means necessary. He was chased out because of it but later helps Sieg when Haji manipulates the village to turn against him. After Haja is defeated and the king comes to his senses, he is welcomed back. Later on, he accompanies the heroes in the final battle and proves instrumental in the fight against Jiero.


A former member of the Imperial Guard of the Empire, after getting beaten easily by Shuda, Haru saves him and he becomes part of the group for the majority of the Blue Guardians Arc. He is a dramatic four armed parody of a superhero with the mistaken belief that the Rave Master is evil and he is doing good, he also has powers over white flames. He remains the same, except viewing Haru as a good guy now.

  • Big Eater: To the point that he nearly eats Plue in his sleep (and eats Bonnye the starfish at least twice).
  • Comically Missing the Point: He's not disturbed by the fact that Julius is having lunch while naked in the middle of the enemy base: he's disturbed by the fact that he's drinking white wine with red meat!
  • Expressive Mask: His facial mask seems to be part of his actual face.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Towards Elie.
  • Large Ham: As mentioned before, he acts like the parody of a Super Hero.
  • Laxative Prank: Victim of one that keeps him out of commision for at least three volumes. When he finally emerges from the restroom he's horribly emaciated.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: The extra arms are revealed to be fake, though.
  • Playing with Fire: User of the technique known as Bond Fire, consisting in a sticky white flame that cannot be easily put out and burns the target to death.
  • Quirky Mini Boss Squad: Like Let, was a member of the Imperial Guard/ a.k.a. Deep Snow's unit until his defeat, unlike Let though he has no Character Development outside of a My God, What Have I Done? scenario where he realizes that he's been helping some of the worst inhuman monsters in the series.
  • Sole Survivor: The other three Imperial Guards weren't so lucky...
  • Theme Naming: He and his squad are named after the surnames of James Bond actors.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Thinks he's working for the good guys. He also thinks they can solve the Endless problem by using Star Memory to go into the past and prevent its creation, but Saga Pendragon reveals that this will only cause the creation of a different Endless.


Cattleya's ex-boyfriend. He encountered Haru while preparing to enter a local dance competition with Nagisa(who was under the name of Mika). He's also a member of Demon Card, though a minor one.

  • And I Must Scream: When Koala turned him into a cyborg he didn't took away his consciousness, which leads to a desperate Branch begging Haru to put him out of his misery as he cannot control his own actions anymore.
  • Butt-Monkey: Has a terrible luck, though this takes a dark turn when he encounters the Six Guards.
  • Cloud Cuckoolanders Minder: He's this to his superior officer, Julius.
  • Dirty Coward: According to the Wikia entry, he owns a Dark Bring that allows him to run faster. That should tell you all. He shows some balls in his final moments though.
  • Domestic Abuse: Was this to Cattleya.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He's willing to bully and beat a defenseless woman, but he's unwilling to use torture implements and he's only pushed to do so when his life is threatened.
  • Gonk: Has a rather weird face and squared eyes, not to mention that he's prone to make deranged facial expressions.
  • Hate Sink: Lampshaded by Mashima himself who wanted to make him as despicable as possible. Ultimately subverted when he redeems himself.
  • Hypocrite: Express a strong dislike for rural countries and fancies himself as a man from the city, but he comes from the very rural and desolate Garage Island, as seen with his name.
  • Jerkass: A devious, arrogant, spineless, bad-mouthing ball of slime working for Demon Card. Though he recognizes his own failures after being turned into a machine-man against his will and eventually sacrifices himself to save the others.
  • Kavorka Man: What did Cattleya saw in him is anyone's guess.
  • Redemption Equals Death: Manages to gain control over his robotic body and tells Haru that there's a bomb on the rebel airship. In reality, he was the bomb, and stayed behind in order to not damage them.
  • Troubled Abuser: Back in Garage Island, he was abusive towards Cattleya because he was bullied.
  • Why Am I Ticking?: The Blue Guardians plant a bomb in him when they turn him into a cyborg.


Demon Card/Shadow Guard

    King (Gale) Raregroove

The leader of Demon Card at the beginning of the series. He used to be Gale Glory's best friend but something came between them. He now causes misfortune wherever he can in an attempt to draw his old friend out and make him suffer.

Voiced by: Tessho Genda (JP), Peter Lurie (EN)

  • Action Dad: Though technically, he didn't know his son survived Slade's assault.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Despite all he did Haru and Gale can't help but feel bad for his death in light of his backstory.
  • Anti-Villain: Type II all the away! All he wanted was to have justice maintained no matter what, even when it meant using underhanded methods then Gale Glory, had a Horrible Judge of Character in trusting the Empire to arrest him. Long story short, it resulted in a complex, but mutual hatred for one another.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Leads the Demon Card and is by far the strongest member at the start of the series. He easily defeats Gale without even using any of his Dark Bring, and is only beaten by Haru when blindsided after Plue uses the Rave of Combat to block an attack. After his death we hear he fought Doryu to a standstill, which is more to King's credit since Doryu had one of the pieces of the Sinclair Dark Bring.
  • BFS: His Decalogue sword, the Evil Counterpart to the Ten Powers.
  • Big Bad: The first of four, but was supposed to be the final one.
  • Blow You Away: His sword has the same Mel Force form as Haru's. He gets the ability earlier, though since he had the sword longer.
  • Cosmic Plaything: Not that he knows it. His entire lineage is made up of these.
  • Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You: Leaves his biological son to fend for himself at age six and gives his adopted son abandonment issues. In the first case, he didn't realize that Lucia had survived the attack on Demon Card, and was still mourning him a decade later. In Deep Snow's, he failed to properly explain that he was being sent away so he could lead a better life, not because he wasn't wanted.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Arguably the saddest in the series.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: His son picks up the role Big Bad after his defeat. Consider that there are still two rave stones to collect when Haru confronts him.
  • Dying as Yourself: All of his Dark Bring are destroyed in the fight, returning him to normal as he dies.
  • Evil Former Friend: To Gale.
  • Fallen Hero: He really wanted the same justice as Gale, but since the latter left on his own, it resulted in some shady work, ending with a tragedy that tore the two apart.
  • Freudian Excuse: You'd be mad too if someone like your best friend was responsible for the deaths of your wife and son.
  • Go Out with a Smile: After Redemption Equals Death.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Decalogue is used against him with a vengeance when Haru gets the Third Rave Stone.
  • Like a Son to Me: About Deep Snow. Unbeknownst to the latter.
  • Like Father, Like Son: The son is just a little cuter, and a little more successful at destroying the world.
  • Morph Weapon: Decalogue, the Evil Counterpart of the Ten Commandments.
  • One-Winged Angel: By activating the Forbidden Dark Bring, Monster Prison he turns into a bestial version of himself.
  • Perma-Stubble: Not quite a Beard of Evil, but close enough.
  • Parental Substitute: To Deep Snow.
  • Pet the Dog: Revealed after his death, he did love Deep Snow like a son and wanted to keep him away from his war.
  • Redemption Equals Death: Or suicide.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: In his Monster Prison form.
  • Revenge by Proxy: Gale told the Imperials where Demon Card's Headquarters is with the deal of taking King alive as prisoner to end his corrupt ways. To his horror, the Imperials killed all the people inside the Headquarters including King's wife and son (presumably). As revenge for it, King broke out of prison and killed Gale's wife, Sakura, in front of him.
  • Sanity Slippage: What is frightening about Monster Prison, is that it makes the user become a mindless force of savagery.
  • Significant Name Overlap: His true given name is Gale, the same as Haru's father and his former best friend, but changed it to King to differentiate between the two.
  • Start of Darkness: The loss of his family.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: Normally his killing of Sakura would've been a major Kick the Dog moment, but since it came right after he lost his wife and son, he comes off as far more tragic for doing so.
  • Walking Spoiler: Sharing a name with Haru's father deepens the mystery at the beginning of the story.
  • We Used to Be Friends: With Gale Glory.
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: His biological son is named Lucia. He named his adopted son Deep Snow because he was in a snowy mountain at the time.
  • You Killed My Father: He killed Gale's wife, Sakura, Haru's mother. Subverted in that Haru as well as the audience was more interested in having Sympathy for the Devil.

    Lucia Raregroove
"Your existence is surreal"

King's son who went Axe-Crazy after having a hellish childhood. He took over Demon Card after his father's defeat. He's noted as being something of a slave driver who comes dangerously close to having a god complex, and for offing any subordinate who fails even the slightest bit.

Voiced by: Soichiro Hoshi (JP), Armando Valdes-Kennedy (EN), Carlos Galindo (LA SP)

  • And Now You Must Marry Me: Tries to force Elie to be his bride so they can repopulate the original world.
  • The Anti-Christ: He believes (and with some pretty sound reasoning) that the meaning of his life is to destroy the universe.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: Don't forget, he is technically a king. He doesn't forget.
  • Ax-Crazy: See the drawings written in his cell when Sieg visited it after he had escaped, yeah he's a sane guy.
  • Because Destiny Says So: Believes his purpose to destroy the world and defeat Haru is so, but he really wants to destroy the world because his life's so fucked up.
  • Berserker Tears: During his last fight with Haru.
  • BFS: An Expy of The Decaforce.
  • Big Bad: The main one after King died.
  • Blow You Away: Not just people. He splits the earth with wind.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Just like Haru, but with the word "dark" added before each sword form.
  • Cosmic Plaything: One of the rules of the universe is literally that his bloodline has to suffer.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Mind you, his hair is blond.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Spent virtually his entire childhood in a dark prison before it was destroyed after his father died.
  • Disappears into Light: He disappears like this after Haru defeats him.
  • Doom Magnet: Sinclaire was attracted to his madness, making him more deranged.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Despite all but boasting that his father's death didn't affect him, his mother's clearly did. He mentions her death as the first thing to go wrong in his life (while not even touching on his father) and named the final form of his sword after her.
  • Evil Counterpart: Done as much as possible with Haru. Both are teenage boys born on July 7th, 0050, had fathers named Gale, grandfathers of royalty, carry swords with ten different forms, and have a crush on Elie. Their personality is what sets them apart; Haru is an All-Loving Hero while Lucia is an Omnicidal Maniac.
  • Forceful Kiss: Steals Elie's first kiss.
  • Forgot About His Powers: He has a piece of the Sinclair Dark Bring, and he almost never uses it.
  • Freudian Excuse: His getting caught up in the first attack on Demon Card and being locked away in Mega Unit.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Lucia is male. The guy who wrote the summary for Volume 32 didn't know that.
  • Generation Xerox: His fight with Haru is much like their father's reasons to fight each other.
  • Go Mad from the Isolation: In general, locking a small child up in a maximum security prison and depriving them of contact with the rest of the world for ten years is bad for one's mental health.
  • Go Out with a Smile: [spoiler: He goes to his death with peace while noting that Haru won't be able to stop Endless, in contrast to the turbulent hatred he had all of his life.]]
  • Godhood Seeker: Wants to become a god.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a prominent scar on the right side of his cheek and is one of the most villainous characters in the story.
  • Jerkass: Lucia is not nice, to say the least. He does what he wants and kills who he wishes and thinks nothing of others.
  • Informed Flaw: Despite this being in his room, he never displays any extreme insanity or evil aside from his desire of nomarlcy of returning the world to its destroyed state, being a typical Card-Carrying Villain and Jerkass At his worst.
  • Instant Expert: Has less time with the Decalogue sword than his father did but by the time he faces Haru, he's learned to use nine of its ten forms.
  • Laser-Guided Tyke-Bomb: Courtesy of the Sinclaire stone.
  • Late-Arrival Spoiler: One of the biggest plot twists regarding Lucia is that he isn't dead. The reader is even treated to his Start of Darkness several volumes before learning his character exists as more than a one off in somebody else's tragic backstory.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Very much, except a little more paranoid and more of a Jerkass.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: One of the reasons he tries to kill Haru.
  • One-Man Army: After breaking out of prison he killed an entire army single handedly, and then traveled to meet Haru by coercing an infamous crime syndicate into letting him use their airship. This was before he got the Decalogue sword.
  • Parental Abandonment: He lost his mother in an attack at age six, and because King didn't know he survived that attack, he was basically left to rot in Mega Unit while his father went off committing random acts of terrorism rather than trying to rescue him.
  • The Power of Hate: The tenth form of his sword, Dark Emilia.
  • Room Full of Crazy: Sieg discovers that Lucia's room was very much this.
  • Sacred First Kiss: Does this to Elie in their first encounter in front of everyone, all he's missing is "Your first kiss wasn't Haru, it was I, Lucia!" and the sound effect that goes with it.
  • Sins of Our Fathers: When he was six years old, Lucia was thrown in a maximum security prison as a precaution since his father was the leader of Demon Card. He also believes that his bloodline is cursed because of his ancestor's sin of creating an Alternate Timeline.
  • Sleeps in the Nude: One scene from the manga shows him getting up from bed in his birthday suit.
  • Start of Darkness: The loss of his family and being locked up for ten years for no reason other than being King's son.
  • Suicidal Cosmic Temper Tantrum: What his goal basically amounts to.
  • Then Let Me Be Evil: Coming from a family with a history of villainy, the Empire decided to get it over with and preemptively arrest Lucia. When he was six. That he went to prison because he was expected to become a villain is, ultimately, his motive for becoming a villain.
  • Unholy Nuke: Seemingly one of the powers of his Mother Dark Bring, which he calls "Distortion", is to create a vortex of destruction that annihilates anything inside. Does nothing to a Sacrifar-empowered Haru.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: The first flashback of him as a kid even has him hiding from a stranger behind his mom. Then an ambitious position seeker shoots down his entire family and he is then locked up in a cell for a decade, leading to his insanity and hatred of the world to fester.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Has a minor one when fighting Haru for a second one as the latter proved stronger then he was and tried to feel sorry for him, making this also a case of Don't You Dare Pity Me!.
    • Then their last fight has him basically blurting out the reasons for wanting the world to die with tears in his eyes!
  • Villainous Crush: On Elie.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: He was thrown into jail for ten years just for being King's son, however, Lucia in the present, is far less sympathetic

    "Oracion Seis" 

  • Elemental Powers: Shuda's fire, Julius's ice, Berial's earth, Reina's air. Haja and Sieg Hart are both mages adept in all elements. Deep Snow, Shuda's replacement, controls water.


The second Demon Card general introduced. A silver claimer like Musica. She tries to play up her looks and likes to flirt, though she isn't really interested in most men. She's also fiercely loyal to King, and hates working under Lucia. She eventually does a Heel–Face Turn after falling for Musica.

Voiced by: Yukana Nogami (JP), Tara Platt (EN), Sandy Fox (Child, EN) , Liliana Barba (LA SP)

  • Battle Couple: With Musica. They defeat Ogre together.
  • Become Your Weapon: After stopping Silver Ray, she and her silver merge with Silver Ray and Musica's own silver, forming the mighty Silver Ray spear.
  • Broken Bird: Especially since her father was killed for a crime he didn't commit and had to suffer for it.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Her fight with Musica. They both had the same powers, but since she could create an endless supply of metal, he was no match for her.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Green hair and eyes.
  • Dark Action Girl: She was the strongest female fighter in Demon Card and her Silver manipulation combined with her Dark Bring, made her a deadly force to reckon with.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Her father was framed by Musica's teacher actually Ogre whose actions in turn, were placed onto the uninvolved teacher, and was killed for a crime he didn't commit.
  • Dark Chick: She's a bit two faced, flirtatious and ultimately redeemed by love leading to her untimely death.
  • Dating Catwoman: With Musica, the two had several romantic hints, while fighting each other on opposite sides. However, by the time she does consider changing sides she has to sacrifice herself in order to stop the Silver Ray from causing a potentially catastrophic explosion.
  • Dead Person Conversation: She talks to Musica in a Near-Death Experience and is clearly willing to wait for the proper time for Together in Death to come, as she encourages him to live on.
  • Defecting for Love: Initially for the redemption of her father's name, but she eventually falls for Musica.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: She has the same power as Musica. Her Dark Bring lets her create silver out of thin air, giving her a huge advantage.
  • Fond Memories That Could Have Been: She dies thinking of what her life could have been if she had stayed with Musica.
Freudian Excuse: Her father was framed by Musica's teacher actually Ogre for a crime that she didn't commit and she joined Shadow Guard in order to get back at his student, Musica when the time was right.

Yandere Dragon Illusionist Bio-Manipulator

The third Demon Card general introduced. Jegan is the serious, strong silent type, with a sword larger than Haru's. He was a childhood friend of Julia and Let's, but went just a little crazy when the Love Triangle didn't work in his favor.

Voiced by: Nobutoshi Canna (JP), Stephen Apostolina (EN)

  • All of the Other Reindeer: He was an outsider in his hometown. He came to believe Julia was the only person who cared for him.
  • Ax-Crazy: It mostly shows in the climaxes of his battles with Let.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: He became obsessed with Julia because she was the only one who approached him in his loneliness.
  • BFS: His weapon of choice outside of Dark Bring is a massive black sword which he usually carries with one hand. Reina even commented on this.

  • The Stoic: At first, showing cold disdain for pretty much everything around him, from Reina's flirts to Beryl's devastation and snarks.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Back at the Dragon Race village, Let and Julia were the only ones who got close to Jegan and considered him a friend. However, Jegan only cared about Julia while he and Let treated each other as distant rivals. When he won a duel against Let only to find out Julia loved Let all along, Jegan went on a rampage, destroyed their village and made Let think he killed Julia so he could have her to himself.
  • Yandere: He has an insane crush on Juila even keeping her as a pet after she turned into a dragon.


The fourth Demon Card general. A Sentinoid who works for Demon Card presumably out of boredom. He's impressed by Lucia's ruthlessness and manages to convince the Demon Lords to bow to him.

Voiced by: Souichirou Tanaka (JP), Kirk Thornton (EN)

  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Has a rather cocky demeanor most of the time, though he shows fear when confronted by a stern Haja or by Megido.
  • Blood Knight: He destroyed a giant city known for its steel walls just to kill some time. He also express boredom when Haru is unable to hurt him, and he's the first of his group to accept Lucia once he hears his plans of war and destruction.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He shows up once before the battle with King after having destoryed a town out of boredom, but has no role at all until after Lucia is freed.
  • Horned Humanoid: They make him look even more demon-like. During the coronation ceremony he wears a hood that conceal most of them.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: His Dark Bring, "The Earth". He mostly uses it to attack people with fists of stone and shift the soil under their very feet.
  • Informed Ability: He's supposed to be the strongest general, but all the others gave the heroes a much harder time. He does, however, utterly curbstomps Haru in their first combat and, objectively, he only fought them on two occasions, the second of which was much, much later in the story, when our heroes have grown stronger.
  • Meaningful Name: Mashima took his name from the Ars Goetia's Berial.
  • No-Sell: The first time he fights the heroes he's able to catch TMC with his canines and tank Blue Crinsom's attack with no effort at all.
  • Now That's Using Your Teeth!: Blocks Explosion. With his canines. Yes, he took an explosion in the mouth with no collateral damage.

  • Pest Controller: The last time he shows up, he's commanding a huge army of demonic insects.
  • Red Baron: "Beryl the Demon Lord", according to his bio.
  • Shaping Your Attacks: He mostly turns the earth into stony fists to punch people to death.
  • Single-Stroke Battle: Raids a hidden area the heroes are in with a army of bugs. He has the upper hand till Haru comes out... and takes Beryl out with one blow just like the trash he is.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": The English manga uses "Berial".
  • Villain Forgot to Level Grind: This might be the reason why he was defeated so easily by Haru the second time they meet.


The fifth Demon Card general, who acts as temporary leader in the lull between King an Lucia's rule. He's also Demon Card's primary sorcerer. He's eventually revealed to be from the same origins as Sieg with the same mission, but isn't quite as willing to convert to the light.

Voiced by: Hitoshi Bifu (JP), Richard Epcar (EN)

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: To the Oracion Seis.
  • Beat Them at Their Own Game: His answer to Sieg's Grand Chariot is to whip out in quick succession the even more broken Space Elemental spells Phenomena and Argonautica.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Attempts to wipe out every threat to himself in order to rule supreme, yet he is defeated through a stab by a wooden staff.
  • Dragon with an Agenda: While he is viewed to be the righthand man of King, in reality, he is working with a secret magic society in order to preserve the natural order by taking him and his son down. Hell, even that's not completely true, it really turns out he's trying to wipe both the Demon Card and the magic society he was born in, all so he can rule the universe with his infinite magic.
  • Cool Helmet: Twice, first the one in the image, and the second is even cooler after some serious Art Evolution
  • Even Evil Has Standards: True, he's a ruthless Well-Intentioned Extremist, but even he was so disgusted by Igor Kilkira's plans, to the point that he sealed him inside his own body.
  • Evil Old Folks: The oldest of the Oracion Seis and Demon Card, before the introduction of his master Shakuma. He's able to fight evenly with Sieg after he becomes strong enough for a week straight without tiring.
  • Evil Sorcerer: He's one of the most powerful wizards of this setting, and also a bad guy.
  • Godhood Seeker: It turns out he's not a Well-Intentioned Extremist like the other wizards, and actually wants to be a Physical God.
  • Large and in Charge: He is the biggest of the Oracion Seis and the strongest and official commander of the group.
  • Gratuitous Japanese: In his first attire there's a japanese writing on his collar which reads "Gogasha" and refers to an incredibly high number that nears the infinite, referring to his ridicolously high mana pool.
  • Irony: He was killed by a physical attack despite having on his person the only Dark Bring which could have made him impervious to such attacks.
  • The Man Behind the Curtain: Haja has one literally infused in his head in order supply his supposedly infinite powers.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He tricks Sieg's hometown into betraying and capturing him so he can be used as a sacrifice to acquire powerful magic.
  • Red Baron: "Haja No Limit", due to his endless supply of magic power.
  • The Starscream: As it turns out, he wants to destroy both Demon Card and the heroes to rule the world. Furthermore, Igor Kilkira is one as well, that's why he sealed him into his body.
  • Squishy Wizard: Quite literally, he's a very powerful magician but has relied on magic for so long that he's defeated when Seig Hart stabbed him with a stick after plowing through his most powerful technique. Seig even chides him on the irony of being felled by something so simple.
  • Taking You with Me: Tries to pull this on Sieg after being mortally wounded with a wooden staff.
  • Two-Faced: His helm conceal a reversed nose and grinning mouth on his forehead, which gives him a second, more sinister face if looked upside down. Said second face is Igor Kilkira, the scientist who gave him his Dark Bring, sealed inside his own head to prevent him to act against Demon Card.
  • Unholy Nuke: His ultimate magic, the forbidden spell that consumes life, called appropriately "Omega Life".
  • We Can Rule Together: It is implied that he wanted Shakuma, his master to rule alongside him or at least serve him. Too bad he never lived to find out to learn that his master is even more inhumane then he'll ever be and he wants the universe to be destroyed because it's unnatural.
  • You Have Failed Me: Haja has Jegan offed for this.


The sixth, and vain, Demon Card general. Julius has serious moments once in a blue moon, and usually only because the enemy dared to strike him in the face. In spite of his goofy attitude, he's a powerful fighter, and the other generals tolerate his behavior. He seems to be the only general who acknowledges Shuda as an equal.

Voiced by: Akira Sasanuma (JP), Jeff Nimoy (EN)

  • Affably Evil: Easily one of the nicer people in Demon Card unless you hurt his face, in which case he gets mad only to return to his usual narcissistic nature.
  • The Beautiful Elite: His face is Serious Business.
  • Beauty Mark: Obviously has one on his very pretty face.
  • Berserk Button: Hitting his face makes him go berserk.
  • Bishōnen: If you hurt his face, you'll get it.
  • Butt-Monkey: During the encounter between the heroes and the Oracion Seis in Symphonia he was kicked in the nads by Elie and thrown around like a ragdoll by Haru and Sieg.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: He's one of the seven evil generals that the cast fights throughout the series, but he's more often concerned with all that is beautiful (especially himself) and can act pretty stupid for as much credit as King gives him.
  • Cool Sword: The form of his Dark Bring.
  • Crouching Moron Hidden Bad Ass: On the rare occasions where he's serious.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Defeat in a dance contest, mind you.
  • The Fighting Narcissist: To the point that he's more pissed for being shot in the face rather than for being kicked in the groin. He's so narcissist that his dancing partner is actually a human-sized doll he calls Française.
  • Groin Attack: He dodges most of Elie's attacks, but falls victim to one that cripples him. Too bad for Elie, he goes from paralized to berserk when she shoots his face next.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Due to Elie being a better dancer.
  • An Ice Person: His Dark Bring's power, Ama d'Etoile. He can also "freeze" people in place without actually covering them in ice.
  • Ignored Enemy: He considers Sieg his "beautyful rival". The feeling isn't reciprocate.
  • Irony: He's named after the foreign for "July", a summer month: he's an ice user.
  • Minor Injury Overreaction: To any damage to his face.
  • Naked People Are Funny: Starting with the Blue Gaurdians arc, he's an exhibitionist.
  • Red Baron: Known in his bio as "Iulius the Magical Ice Knight".
  • Spell My Name with an "S": The manga calls him Iulius. Everyone else swears it's Julius.
  • The Worf Effect: When he fights Renard in the Blue Guardians arc he gets his own ass handed to him on a plate.

    Deep Snow

One of the four generals for The Empire, who defects to Demon Card after Lucia takes over. He's later revealed to be King's adopted son, who was sent away to be "saved from the path of darkness". He has no attatchment to Lucia, but serves Demon Card in order to try to satisfy King.

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: His hair is light brown in the anime.
  • Anti-Villain: He only wants to do his father proud.
  • Body Horror: He's able to bend literally anything that moves in any manner he chooses, including people! He also has a second Dark Bring embedded in his chest.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: His forbidden Dark Bring is able to awaken the hidden power of humans, enough to beat the crap of Shuda.
  • Improbable Age: Explained away by him aging 2.5 times faster than a normal person, but he was a baby when Emilia and Sakura died. In other words, he's only been alive about ten years during the events of the story. And even if you count him as 25, he's still a 25 year old who was one of the Empire's top generals, despite having no connections to propel him to that point and, at most, eight years to climb the social ladder. (Or three, if you don't want to count the time it would take him to reach a reasonable age to enlist.)
  • Making a Splash: Able to bend water, though his Dark Bring Zero Stream works on everything that has a stream, including wind and blood.
  • Meaningful Name: Kind of. It was snowing heavily when King named him.
  • The Mole: As the General of the North in the Empire. He later takes advantage of his former position to killing the remaining two generals and recruiting the former Imperial Guard (Lazenby's group).
  • Morality Pet: Turns to have been one for King.
  • Nice Hat: Always wear an imposing, tall hat on his head. It hides his Dark Bring Zero Stream.
  • Not So Stoic: When he uses his Forbidden Dark Bring.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: When he was a toddler attacked by wolves, he friggin' wiped them out, leaving only a crater behind, all done unconsciously.
  • Replacement Goldfish: To King, who didn't know Lucia was alive.
  • Sixth Ranger: Takes Shuda's place among the six, only to be beaten by him seven volumes later.
  • The Stoic: Most of the time. He loses it upon releasing his second Dark Bring.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Somehow King forgot to tell Deep Snow he did see him as a son.

  • Super Smoke: His Dark Bring allows him to turn his body into noxious smoke, which he can use to suffocate people to death.

  • Bad Boss: Cuts down his own henchman Bis while he was fighting Musica.

Galein Musica smeared himself with such a smell in order to perform an Heroic Sacrifice and force the beasts to focus on him.

Go and Rosa

Go is a goofy member of Demon Card and movie director who's trying to make an award-winning movie with his girlfriend Rosa as the main character and the village of Ska as the setting... using a weather machine to cause neverlasting rain on the town.

  • Battle Couple: Go and Rosa, despite everything, really love each other. They also have Babies Ever After.

  • Informed Ability: Apparently, Go is a top-notch, award-winning director in universe, though we never see his movies. (A cover though shows Haru crying while watching his movie).
  • Large Ham: Go, big time. Despite his heinous actions it's impossible to take him for a villain.
  • Laughably Evil: An over enthusiast ham director with a macho attitude and an overblown ego is quite difficult to hate as a villain.
  • Punny Name: His weapon, Ikazuchi, is written as "Furious Hammer", though "Ikazuchi" as one word means "Lightning".

  • Those Two Bad Guys: They're always seen together, even on their free time.
  • Villainous Crush: Being a piggish pervert, Poosha has the hots for Elie but mostly for Reina, costantly ogling a picture of her and dreaming of becoming her equal in Demon Card.

  • Intergenerational Friendship: Sopra is 17, Range 14, but they go along very well.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Range's Dark Bring and only weapon is Used Sound: after a few seconds' worth of countdown, she can unleash an eardrum-popping scream capable of taking anyone out of order. However, she's vulnerable while she charges the attack (at least ten seconds) and covering one's ears will nullify the effect.
  • No-Sell: Sopra's Dark Bring Sound Cancellor can istantly dispel any sound, which is why she cannot be deafened by Range.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Range is the Red, being short, young, overly cute and playful, while Sopra is tall, tomboyish and serious.

Igor Kilkira

A Mad Scientist loyal to King with no ethics- or even redeeming traits to talk about. He studied the Dark Bring and was behind the creation of Deep Snow and Haja's Dark Bring. He's sealed inside Haja, normally appearing as the reverse face on his forehead.
  • Evil Genius: He was this to Demon Card back when King was in charge. Then Haja sealed him.
  • Gonk: Has a downright unpleasant appearence, especially with that tube-thing connected to a plate on his head.
  • Hate Sink: Probably the most repulsive and unlikeable member of Demon Card.
  • Kick Them While They Re Down: He unleashes his fury on a powerless Miltz, Nibel and Hilde and even kicks savagely Haja's corpse.
  • Mad Scientist: Was one for Demong Card, studying Dark Bring and performing.... questionable experiments. It's telling that King finds out that Igor was the only person left in the compound (the others, according to him, fled).

  • Theme Naming: They are named after the surnames of actors who played James Bond.
  • The Worf Effect: They're easily dispatched by Shuda.

Other Villains


A Demon Lord (technically, the fifth), who chose to come to the human world to live hand in hand with humans. It didn't work out, and he decided to destroy the humans instead.

  • Arc Villain: While Lucia was gathering all the forces of evil.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: The leader of a powerful crime syndicate, and he nearly kills Haru and it takes the entire main cast's combined efforts to defeat him.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: With Ogre.
  • Bad Boss: Well to be fair he did warn Lilith first.
  • Cool Sword: Two of them, though they are both destroyed in combat. The first is the Dusk Sword, whose wounds grows nastier and more painful as the night falls. The second has an ornated hilt and is called "Shikkokumaru" (Pitch Black). They're both destroyed in combat against Haru's friends.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: His fight with Haru starts off with him handing out the most one-sided fight in the series as Haru fails to even touch him thanks to his Gravity Master power.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Not as bad as King's but a dark showing on Fantastic Racism.
  • Dark Is Evil: His affinity and power, subverted as well; the reason why the humans abandoned and mistreated him was because non-humans were viewed to be abominations of darkness, which ultimately encouraged him to embrace Sinclaire.
    • Shock and Awe: The dark-themed attack Darkness Blitz let him use dark-colored lightning.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: A little creepy when he says it. Doubles as his Villainous Breakdown as it becomes a Madness Mantra.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Giving him a Vampire-like look.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors: Discussed in the fight against him, when Ruby protects his friends from one of his Dark spells by changing their attribute to Dark for a while. Subverted when Doryu reveals that he can uses a couple of spells so powerful they can bypass this resistance and harm even Dark-elemental people.
  • Freudian Excuse: Humans Are the Real Monsters, that is all.
  • Go Mad from the Isolation: Since the humans imprisoned in the dark.
  • Gravity Master: His Shadow Sinclair Stone. He uses it for either imprisoning people in the darkness, one piece at the time, or in tandem with his swordsmanship, repealing incoming attacks and attracting the opponent to his own attacks.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: Considering what happened, you can't blame him for thinking this.
  • Interim Villain: The villain between King's downfall and Lucia's rise to power.
  • Kick the Dog: Ruby offers him all his money in exchange for sparring Haru. When he refuses to acknowledge being friends with Haru was a mistake, Doryu tries to kill him.
  • Magic Knight: Equally skilled with martial arts and darkness magic.
  • Master Swordsman: Subverted, his swordsmanship greatly depends on his Dark Bring. Ultimately, he fights better with Black Magic.
  • The Necromancer: Mentioned to be able to use this magic, as he revived Crash Cookie with it.
  • Not So Stoic: His Demon Lord form.
  • One-Winged Angel: His Demon Lord form.
  • Pointy Ears: A que that he's not entirely human grow large in his true form.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Ogre's Red, being smart, calm, calculating and putting thought in his actions. Bonus point for being both demons.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Technically a Demon King, he did renounce to everything he had when he came to the Human World with his dream (he was seen working in a store) to start from scratch. He took everything back after his Start of Darkness.
  • Start of Darkness: The village he worked so hard to create turning on him and locking him up.
  • Tragic Villain: He had gone to the Human World in order to lessen the Fantastic Racism between humans and non-humans by building a community that would bridge the gap between them. Unfortunately, these attempts backfired horribly due to the humans clinging to their "light" as a means of superiority and it led to him regretting his actions and becoming a cold-hearted villain.
  • The Stoic: The only one of major villains that's not not giving a smug grin or a Slasher Smile most of the time. When he finally does, he's verging into a breakdown after finally being cornered.
  • Then Let Me Be Evil: Despite being a demon lord, Doryu came to the human world hoping to create a place where all species could live in harmony. When Fantastic Racism became too severe and he was locked away by the people he sought to help, he lost it.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When Haru deflects his ultimate attack he finally looses what little remains of his composure, briefly going into a Madness Mantra before going into his One-Winged Angel and becoming far less stoic than before.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He seemingly Dies Wide Open after being struck down by Million Suns, but Mashima mentions that he wanted to show him joining the others in the Gondor Calls for Aid moment, implying that he actually survived and redeemed.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: When he was younger, he tried to forge peace between humans and non-humans. He failed because of the humans' Fantastic Racism.
  • Wound That Will Not Heal: Not on himself. Any wound he inflicts on someone with his Demon Sword will refuse to heal and get progressively worse until midnight.

Gold Rush!

The leader of the Oni, who teamed up with Doryu to overthrow two other names in the underworld. He's the most heartless of the main villains, and also the most lecherous. He's completely obsessed with power, and doesn't care who he tramples over to get it.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has red skin.
  • Arc Villain: Specifically of Volume 16.
  • Ax-Crazy: Literally, the only people that make him look sane are Hardner and Shakuma Raregroove, and you believe it when you read about them.
  • Bad Boss: Despite Gocco's belief that he would never use the Mermaid Cannon on his own soldiers, he's perfectly willing to do that just to kill the Rave Master.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: With Doryu and Lucia being the Greater-Scope Villain.
  • The Brute: He is easily the least intelligent of the major villains of the series, yet somehow was smart enough to frame Reina's father for his kidnapping and utilize the Silver Ray.
  • Dumb Muscle: Doryu is obviously a better strategist and has a more thought-out plan than the Oni captain will ever will.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: A gold claimer to Musica and Reina's silver claimers.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: If his plans fail, he will act in extreme anger and lash out at anyone who's the closest.
  • Hate Sink: Out of the major villains of each arc, Ogre's easily the worst, even without his Dark Bring. He caused several horrible actions such as having framed Reina's father for a crime he didn't commit, leading to Reina's turn to evil and inadvertently causing her vendetta against Musica's teacher and by proxy Musica in addition to enslaving mermaids to empower an energy cannon to wipe out his enemies by draining their life force. He also is extremely obnoxious, perverted, short-sighted and entitled, lacking any of the tragic backstory of the others to justify any of his actions
  • Horned Humanoid: Goes hand to hand to being a Oni.
  • I Have You Now, My Pretty: Poor Elie. He also tries this on Reina before Musica saves her.
  • Informed Ability: Somehow managed to steal the Silver Ray to perfectly frame Reina's father and use it as a weapon despite being easily the dumbest of the Big Bad Ensemble by far.
  • Intangibility: His Dark Brings allows attacks to pass through him while he strike back at them with his Gold Claimer powers and physical might with ease.
  • Large and in Charge: To the Oni, he's easily the largest of the members and he backs it it up with his Intangibility Dark Bring and Gold Claimer powers.
  • The Law of Diminishing Defensive Effort: Because his Dark Bring makes physical attacks phase through him, but not energy or spiritual attacks, like Silver Bond.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Use his powers to form a massive, ornated shield.
  • Lust: His main goal is too have all the pretty girls in the world.
  • Mighty Glacier: Due to his Dark Bring he doesn't need to dodge. Comes back to bite him at the height of his battle against Musica and Renia when they use Silver Bond on him. He thinks it'll pass through him like every other attack. It doesn't.
  • No Body Left Behind: Completely vaporized by Musica and Reina's final attack.
  • No-Sell: Being a Gold Claimer he can neutralize Musica and Reina's silver and his Sinclair, Last Physique, nullifies all physical damage done to him. It is bypassed by magical attacks, or simply by the fact that he can still suffocate, as Reina obstruct his mouth with her silver.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red to Doryu's Blue, being brash, arrogant, brutal and straightforward, but much dumber. Bonus point for being a literal Red Oni.
  • Smart Ball: He does show some acumen, if minimal, when he hears that Reina is Rize's daughter and puts two and two together about the password for Silver Ray, showing that he can be cunning now and then.
  • Stupid Evil: Kidnaps the Elie with the intent of possibly raping her and using her as a weapon earning Haru's Berserk Button, prone to Evil Gloating, severly looks down on his enemies and lives very hedonistically.
  • Villain Team-Up: With Doryu in order to fight off Demon Card, unfortunately they disbanded after when Haru proved their ultimate weapon useless.
  • Warrior Prince: Offhandely mention that he was born in the Royal family of the Oni clan, which should make him this.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: And how. He's one of the rudest and less sympathetic villains in the story.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Unsurprisingly, he was going to beat Elie to a pulp after she caused the Mermaid Cannon to miss and short circuits, and orders Doryu to take her away otherwise he may butcher her in rage.

I was a lot bigger in my introduction

The leader of a criminal organization known as "Blue Guardians". After the loss of his wife and unborn child he found an Artifact of Doom that convinced him to forget his misery by making everything simply disappear and merge with Elie to do so.

  • Arc Villain: While Lucia is recuperating.
  • Animal Theme Naming: Subverted. According to Mashima, he wanted to name him after an animal in french like the Six Guards, but he forgot which.
  • Ax-Crazy: His Dark Bring has obviously taken a toll on his sanity after losing his wife and unborn child who was actually Nagisa unbeknownst to him who was raised by his former friend Yuma. His goal is basically destroying everything in order to obtain everything.
  • Arm Cannon: Had a gun on one hand till he restored it.
  • Bad Powers, Bad People: He can also bring back every injury you ever suffered in your life.
  • Big Bad: The fifth (counting Ogre and Doryu as separate) of the series.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: With Lucia.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: It's a thing for him as well as one of his powers.
  • Cool Sword: One with a skull marking, it doesn't have a point since its power is slicing and not cutting.
  • Early Installment Character Design Difference: Twofold: when he first appeared he was seemingly a towering behemoth of a man, looming over even Meghido and Beryl, but when he appears in person he's taller than normal, but not enormous. Also, his Sinclair Anastasis first appeared as an egg-shaped pendant whose upper part was encased in a silvery net, but later appears as a more mundane circular brooch holding his cape closed.
  • Evil Plan: And an insane one at that, his greed is so much that he wants to destroy all existence to obtain it all at once.
  • Fantastic Racism: On top of being a sociopathic, god complex genocidal maniac, he views non humans as inferiors.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Initially has this look before his Sinclair likely restored his former eyesight.
  • Freudian Excuse: His wife's death leading him to become an Omnicidal Maniac.
  • Fusion Dance: Wants to with Elie (though more specifically with Endless), he doesn't succeed.
  • A God Am I: Leads into Smug Super.
  • Good Powers, Bad People: His Dark Bring can restore things like limbs, dead things and broken buildings. He's also a Sadistic racist with a god complex.
  • Green Thumb: His Shadow Stone allow plant life to regenerate, but not the same type as Jegan.
  • Healing Factor: His main power, doubles as time control. Though Haru eventually figures out that his regeneration time grows longer the more he uses it.
  • Hypocrite: For all of his racism on non-humans, all of his minions have an Animal Motif for a theme.
  • Insane Troll Logic: Apparently destroying all existence counts as becoming the richest being in existence.
  • Jerkass: Every word he says is just demeaning.
  • Large and in Charge: In his initial appearance, he's easily the biggest villain, but when he really appears, he's taller than Haru and Let, but no where near the height of his introduction.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Nagisa is actually Hardner's daughter.
  • Make Way for the New Villains: Lucia returns to his villainous status by stabbing Hardner right after he sees the error of his ways.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Goes with his Villainous Breakdown.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: And how, since his final objective is the genocide of the people of the Demon World.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: He's racist against non humans for no reason than human superiority, which is shared by all of his organization, even the Ambiguously Human ones.
  • Red Baron: Hardner "The Executioner", due to his massive sword being an Executioner Sword.
  • Sadist: He and his organization share this as their main trait.
  • Smug Super: While Ogre was very cocky, everything he does as a villain is filled with bold confidence in his superiority.
  • The Sociopath: He and his organization have this as their motif.
  • The Starscream: Well, it's destroying everything, but it still counts since he allied with Lucia.
  • Start of Darkness: Implied by Yuma to have been the death of his beloved wife and daughter. Except that the latter did survive.
  • Suicidal Cosmic Temper Tantrum: He tries to summon the Endless to wipe out his own painful memories.
  • Time Master: He can use this to make people experience their old injuries and erase his own injuries. As well as building and plant life.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Threefold. One during his final fight with Haru when he realizes his Dark Bring power is failing him as it can only heal him so much and be used in his attacks. The second when he sees Endless being pushed back by Elie and Belnika, denying him his wish to destroy everything because of his painful past memories. And finally, after he's defeated it's revealed that Nagisa, the girl he tortured just for fun, was in fact his daughter who he thought died in the plane crash that killed his pregnant wife.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: As seen above with Doryu, Hardner's fate is ambiguous, but the fact that Mashima wanted to show him joining the others in the Gondor Calls for Aid moment implies that he survived and redeemed.


Haja's teacher whose magic surpasses even his own, he joins Demon Card in order to initiate Project DR. He is also the old king of the Raregroove Kingdom, thus being King's father and Lucia's grandpa and real name is Raregroove.

  • The Archmage: The strongest sorcerer in the series.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Back when he was king of the Raregroove king.
  • Ax-Crazy: As it turns out, he's the worst in the series. He was disappointed with Overdrive only killing two million people because he wanted the entire world to be destroyed.
  • Bait the Dog:
    • The Raregroove king was implied to be a Well-Intentioned Extremist until he was revealed to be a a sadistic sorcerer who started the war For the Evulz.
    • Also putting King up for adoption was only to have him grow up and destroy the universe for him rather than any concern.
  • Blank White Eyes: He has these in the short moments prior to his death to emphasize his insanity.
  • Broken Pedestal:
    • To King, who viewed him as a Well-Intentioned Extremist and revered him as one who should have won the war. He died before learning that his father not only started the war for sadistic amusement, but also wants to erase all of existence due to the current world being a reset of the apocalypse in the old timeline.
    • To Haja, had he lived past his encounter with Sieg. Shakuma's true goals directly oppose his student's Godhood Seeker goals.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Not obvious at first as he acts with solemn decorum, but when his true personality is revealed, it becomes clear that he's a proud sadist and genocidal maniac. And unlike his son and grandson, he has no redeeming qualities to counter this.
  • Colony Drop: Meteoric Shower, and that's just one of his tamer spells.
  • Elemental Powers: To an extent even bigger than Sieg and Haja, as he can use long forgotten spells.
  • Evil Old Folks: In spite of being the worst parent and horrible human being, he's the strongest sorcerer in the series almost killing the entire cast. Plus he is Lucia's grandfather. Even more of one, once he's revealed to be a disgusting sadist.
  • Evil Sorcerer: Most powerful one in the series.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Haja assumed that Shakuma shared in his ambitions to take over all of existence, he died before learning that the latter was a sadistic monster bent on returning the universe to its previous state.
  • For the Evulz: His reason for causing the Symphonia/Raregroove war.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: He was the one who first used the Sinclair and started the conflict of the entire series, and made sure his family would continue the his war to destroy the world.
  • Hate Sink: Once his true personality is revealed, it becomes clear that he's easily the worse human being in the series, being an deliberately neglectful parent/grandparent who let his family suffer that they would grow up hateful and genocidal like him; killing his nemesis in a sadistically drawn-out manner, and started a war for sadism alone. And unlike other villains, he doesn't have the Dark Bring to brainwash his way of thinking, let alone the humanizing reason to justify any of his actions.
  • Kick the Dog: Several, especially after the true nature of his personality are revealed.
    • He kills a reformed Jegan and an entire town just for the former trying to live a peaceful life and failing Demon Card.
    • He destroys Sieg's skeleton, desecrating his resting place for no reason other than annoyance.
    • Revealing that he started the war 50 years ago for no reason than a bid to reset everything to oblivion and for sadism.
    • Leaving King to grow up alone, and letting Lucia being imprisoned for 10 years in spite of having all of the power to stop their tragedies from happening. Just so that they would grow hateful and destroy the world.
    • Giving the king of Symphonia, Haru's grandfather, a curse that would give him a slow and agonizingly painful death. While recounting it with glee to Elie years later.
    • Trying to goad Elie into destroying the world by revealing all of this to her in hopes that she'd destroy everything in rage.
  • Jerkass: Especially after revealing he's a sadistic who loves causing suffering For the Evulz.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: He left King to be raised by some family, not out of concern, but to later grow up to be a world destroying sociopath.
  • Magic Staff: Owns a curved one.
  • Mask of Sanity: For most of his appearance, he has the demeanor of a solemn, confident sorcerer, it's not until he's hit by Elie's attack that the mask falls off and he reveals his true insane, sadistic nature.
  • Not So Stoic: Once he reveals his vile nature.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Unlike his grandson, he has no reason besides being evil.
  • Parental Abandonment: He left his son King to some family, but considering his character, it was likely he wanted him to grow and destroy the universe as soon as possible rather than concern.
  • Perpetual Frowner: He only smiled once, and that was a merely a second. Which devolves into a full Slasher Smile once he loses it.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: He can create giant natural disasters on a whim.
  • Prophet Eyes: Until his Villainous Breakdown, when he regains pupils.
  • Sadist: As it turns out, he's easily the most sadistic of the Raregrooves, causing a curse on the King of Symphonia that would slowly kill him like a disease.
  • Slasher Smile: When he loses it.
  • The Sociopath: And how! He's easily the least sympathetic Raregroove in the series.
  • The Stoic: Most of the time during his first appearence, not showing emotions even when he's bombarding a city with meteors or implacably chasing down the heroes with his superior magic.
  • Squishy Wizard: Averted. Unlike his apprentice he takes a hell of a beating before biting the dust, surviving Elie throwing one of his own very destructive spells back at him.
  • Strike Me Down with All of Your Hatred: Encourages Elie to kill him with Etherion because he's certain she will destroy the world along with him. This stop when it turns out she can control it enough to just kill him.
  • The Unfettered: He wants to destroy the world and doesn't care how. Even his own life comes second as long he can achieve his goal.
  • Villainous Breakdown: After being hit by Elie's Etherion, he goes from being a Perpetual Frowner with Prophet Eyes to a disgusting monster who gloats about his evil deeds.
  • Walking Spoiler:
    • He's King's father and and by extension Lucia's grandfather.
    • The fact he's a Sadist is one as well.

    The Four Demon Lords

Megido, Jiero, Uta, and Ashura (with Doryu still living according to the author, but somehow forgot to include) They rule the Mythical Realm where all the sentinoids come from with an iron fist. Beryl convinces them to submit themselves to Lucia. They become his Quirky Miniboss Squad during the final battle.

  • Achilles' Heel: Ashura apparently forgot that being a demon filled with Dark Bring means you're a sitting duck for the Ten Powers (and Plue), while Jiero can regenerate at will but her ice skeleton doesn't.
  • All Your Powers Combined: Ashura controls every Dark Bring, in addition to Final Story which initially allowed him to destroy any Dark Bring used against him before he gave it to Lucia.
  • Avenging the Villain: Subverted, while Megido isn't happy with the news that Doryu, a former Demon King, was defeated by a human, he deems them not enough to get him to take measures against the perpetrator.
  • Ax-Crazy: Ashura and Megido, especially Ashura.
    • Jura and Uta are more subtle, but ultimately as insane as the other two.
  • BFS: Uta doesn't hold a candle to God's though, and when he gets serious he mostly goes bare-handed.
  • Big Damn Villains: Megido shows up in a flying carriage to rescue Lucia and stops ''The Endless'' with his Breath Weapon.
  • Blood Knight: Uta, he is a Demon Lord of War after all, Megido has shades of this.
  • Co-Dragons: Essentially, with Megido standing out the most.
  • The Dragon: Once Lucia scraps all his other minions, Megido especially.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Ashura fights Haru, with the former dominating the fight after his One-Winged Angel due to his Dark Bring nature. Unfortunately, it's for those same reasons he ultimately is destroyed since the latter has the Ten Powers, which is his Achilles' Heel.
  • Horned Humanoid: Both Ashura and Uta, but with the former, it's a major plot point since growing a second set actually increases his powers.
  • An Ice Person: Jiero.
  • Killer Rabbit: Ashura, despite his small size, was able to defeat Musica with ease.
    • Subverted, he's actually much bigger than in his true form.
  • King of Beasts: Megido looks like one.
  • Literally Shattered Lives: How Ashura dies.
  • No Body Left Behind: Each of the Demon Lords do this as they are defeated, with the exception of Megido, whose body is melted by lava.
  • Oh, Crap!: All of them when the heroes manage to gain the upper hand. Jiero when Belnika attempts to pull a Taking You with Me on her, when Nibel uses forbidden magic to age himself and match her power and realizing Julia has found out her weakness. Uta when Let reveals he holds the spirit of the Dragon King in him and proceeds to curbstomp him. Ashura when he suddenly realizes Haru's Sword, the Ten Commandments, was made for destroying Dark Bring of which he is made out of. And Megido when Shuda slashes through his Hellfire and him along with it.
  • One-Winged Angel: Uta just grows another set of horns, but Ashura follows this trope more accurately.
  • Playing with Fire: Megido is not known as "Megido of the Magma" for nothing.
  • Quirky Mini Boss Squad: For the final battle. Gave all the heroes a run for their money that left them near-death due to having to use forbidden magic just to even the odds or, at best, severely wounded.
  • Satan: Ashura's true form invokes this.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: While the others are first shown in the Demon World, Jiero's first appearence has her sealed inside a block of ice, put on sale in the human world. She then thaws out of her prison and proceeds to level the whole place.
  • Slasher Smile: Megido's standard expression.
  • Squishy Wizard: Jiero, who has a healing factor and can recover from most heavy damage done to her. However the group she's fighting against (Julia, Belnika and Nibel) realize while her outsides can take a lot of damage. Her insides are vulnerable as her skeleton is made of ice. Once the latter two damage her enough to paralyze her, cue Julia coming in for the finishing blow via Kiss of Death.
  • Stripperific: Jiero.
  • Stupid Evil: The only way to describe Ashura's decision to fight Haru, despite his entire body consisting of the thing that the latter's weapon was meant to destroy.
  • Super Mode: Jiero's hair stands up and is apparently stronger.
  • Taking You with Me: Megido attempts this by breaking the ground Shuda and he are fighting on and trying to drop both of them into the lava below. Is thwarted when Haru manages to save Shuda.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Ashura, whose body was implanted with Dark Bring, forgot that he was fighting Haru, whose sword was made to destroy Dark Bring!
  • Undying Loyalty: They swear loyalty once they see how evil Lucia is, but Megido stands out the most, since he's made the second most appearances next to Doryu. At the same time he slightly subverts it, as at first Megido was going to torch Beryl alive for suggesting to side with Lucia, but eventually changed his mind.
  • Villainous Valor: Megido seems to be quite honourable, and even decides to let the (exhausted) group off the hook as a repaiment for not killing Lucia.
  • Winged Humanoid: Ashura in his true form.

    Palace Guardians

L'Tiangle, Rionette, Racas and Ron Glace. Five warriors from other dimensions are brought together by one of King's Dark Brings, the Gate. The guard the Tower of Din as well as being non-humans of unparalleled strength. One, Let, later does a Heel–Face Turn and becomes one of the good guys.

L'Tiangle is voiced by: Katsuaki Arima (JP), Jeff Nimoy (EN)
Rionette is voiced by: Kousuke Okano (JP), Patricia Lentz (EN)
Racas is voiced by: Hitoshi Bifu (JP) Armando Valdes Kennedy (EN)
Ron Glace is voiced by: Souichirou Tanaka (JP) Joe Ochman (EN)

  • Accent Adaptation: Racas has a Spanish accent, which is very fitting considering his character.
  • Achilles' Heel: Rionette is cold and professional, but has a glaring weakness: he's attracted by "weird beings", which allows Griff to distract him.
  • All There in the Manual: Most of their backgrounds are revealed in the back pages of the book.
  • Animated Armor: Ron is apparently this, as is L'Tiangle.
  • Ax-Crazy: Ron Glace is this, bellowing that he wants to kill someone and being unable to control himself.
  • Casting a Shadow: Rionette. He can turn into a shadow to avoid attacks and use Shadow Pin to block his enemies.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Racas keeps hidden while Haru and Let fight in order to study Haru's rythm and know how to counter him.
  • Combat Tentacles: Seemingly L'Tiangle's weapon of choice, made invisibles with his powers.
  • Counter-Attack: Racas' power bestowed to him by the Dark Bring "Rythm Counter".
  • Cross-Dressing Voice: Rionnete in the English dub.
  • Glass Cannon: Rionette is quite powerful and dangerous to deal with, but once his powers are removed Elie can make short work of him.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Ron. This apparently was the reason why L'Tiangle was going to throw him out of the group.
  • Informed Ability: These five are said to have powers greater than a 1000 demonoids, yet they go down much quicker than most of the later Quirky Mini Boss Squad of the series.
    • Additional points for Rionette for being described as the most cruel of the five, when all we saw as coldness and strange liking to weird things.
  • Literally Shattered Lives: How L'Tiangle dies.
  • Improbable Age: According to the manga biograhies, Ron is 2 years old.
  • In-Series Nickname: Racas always refer to L'Tiangle as "Captain" ("Taichou" in the original Japanese, "Capitan" in some English translations.)
  • Non-Standard Character Design: These five are much more detailed in design, especially compared to the later guardians of the major antagonists who would later appear in the story; especially L'Tiangle, who is noted to be the hardest character to draw in the whole series.
  • Our Demons Are Different: Like Berial's case, it's not made clear if they are of a separate race from the Demon Lords' race; but it's clear that each of the members come from different types of Demonoid, with Ron and L'Tiangle being Animated Armor, Rionette being a tall blue creature with a long neck, skinny arms, and a tail coming out of its back and Racas being a yellow, segmented pointy eared humanoid.
  • Quirky Mini Boss Squad: The most notable of the series, with Racas and Rionette being the oddest of the group.
  • The Stoic: All of them appearance wise, only that Ron has a huge Hair-Trigger Temper and Racas is the Bunny-Ears Lawyer.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Ron Glace can summon them to attack with his Dark Bring Needle Pain.
  • Theme Naming: Adding "Ma" in front of their names gets you Maltiangle (multi-angle), Marionette, Maracas, and Maron glace (marron glace, a dessert). Also, Let (mallet).
  • Undying Loyalty: Implied to King. Racas is also incredibly fond of his "Captain" L'Tiangle, much to the latter annoyance.
  • Villainous Breakdown: L'Tiangle, once Musica gets a hold of him, immediately panics as he did not expect that he'd make a counterattack.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: With the notable exception of Let, the rest of the guardians are taken out before we learned anything major about them.

     Doryu's Specter Team 

The followers of Doryu, themed after the classical monsters of horror movies. The basic soldiers are the artificially-created Wolfmen, while the five officers are tasked with guarding one of the airship's sectors against the intruders. The members are Franken Billy, Lilith Niina (both appeared in the anime), Doctor Mummy, Crash Cookie and "Poison Mist" Orochi.

  • Arm Cannon: The first Wolf encountered has a machinegun for an arm.
  • Bad Boss: Doctor Mummy quickly dismiss his latest Wolf creation (a transformed Musica) as trash deserving to die after he wounds himself rather than fighting Haru anymore.
  • Blow You Away: Lilith's Dark Bring, Noah's Wind, allows her to turn into wind and form whirlwinds and Razor Wind from her body. Oddly enough, she states that her powers works better underwater.
  • Break Them by Talking: Lilith does this to both Elie, giving her a bottle of poison to kill herself, and to Seyla, pointing out that Haru will never be able to return her love.
  • The Brute: Franken Billy is the most straightforward of the group, impatient and prone to violence. His Dark Bring merely gives him a combat boost as well.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Lilith is more than willing to resort to treachery in combat, which works wonders against Celia during their battle. Orochi is also implied to be fond of traps and ambushes.
  • Dem Bones: Doctor Mummy's One-Winged Angel Dark Bring melts the flesh from his body in order to turn him into a skeletal Knight who can damage others by affecting their very bones. Then Musica smash him in one blow.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Lilith goes completely barefoot.
  • The Dragon: Seemingly Orochi, hailed as Doryu's strongest warrior, though Franken Billy claims that he's stronger than him and spends more time on the battlefield, while Orochi guards the ship.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Franken Billy, Lilith and Wolf appeared first on Ruby's flying Casino, where they clash against the party but are interrupted by the Jiggle Butts Gang.
  • Evil Counterpart: Mummy to Alice: they both studied together and are elderly scientist, though Alice was and is much better than him, both morally and in skills.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Haru uses Mel Force to send Crash flying against the airship's outer wall, causing his powers to destroy said wall and fky to a Disney Villain Death.
  • Irony: The tattoo on Orochi's face read "Divine Saké", the very same thing that killed the mythological one.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: The Black model 320 Wolf Musica is much more dangerous than his fellow, light brown brothers.
  • Monster Mash: They are themed after classical monsters: Franken Billy is a Frankenstein Monster, Lilith may be a Gorgon or a Succubus, Crash Cookie is a Zombie, Doctor Mummy and his Wolves are themed after the Mummy, the Wolf Man and Living Skeleton, while Doryu himself has a Vampire look. The only one out of theme is Orochi, named after the mythological Japanese monster.
  • Mook: Wolf is actually this, being part of Doctor Mummy's army of artificial demons.
  • No Body Left Behind: Crash Cookie vanishes when hit by sunlight, being a Zombie and all.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: Crash Cookie, notorious Serial Killer, appears as a Revenant Zombie with his old personality and memories, now immune to frost and ice and even resistant to fire, though he'll turn to dust if exposed to sunglight.
  • Poisonous Person: Orochi's Dark Bring and source of his moniker, Death Poison, allows him to generate deadly toxic fog. The area he guards is a forest of massive mushrooms called "Poison Area".
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Orochi's Dark Bring takes the form of a series of snakes wrapped around his body.
  • Shapeshifter Weapon: Lilith can turn her hands into sharp blades of wind.
  • Sole Survivor: Billy is implied to be the only surviving member of the squad.
  • Touch of Death: Crash Cookie's infamous Dark Bring "All Crush" allows him to pulverize everything he touches. According to Mashima, he has to focus the power to keep his clothes from being destroyed.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Franken Billy is never seen again after his defeat at the hands of Musica, while the others are all dead by the end.
  • The Worf Effect: Orochi is hyped as the strongest of Doryu's warriors and seems to be a deadly challenge even for Let, only to be killed by Jegan shortly after his introduction.
  • Your Size May Vary: Franken Billy's Dark Bring, Giant, allows him to briefly enlarge his arms at will.


One of the main criminal gangs appeared after the decline of Demon Card, is composed by Oni and lead by Ogre. It's notable members include Kawara, Yanma, Gocco and Gob. They're trying to build the devastating Mermaid Cannon and kidnapping mermaids and mermen to power the machine.

  • Animal Motif: Subtle, but Yanma is themed after the Dragonfly: he has ornaments on the back of his coat resembling dragonfly wings, has dragonfly-shaped earrings and his power comes from a pair of glasses (in Japan the dragonfly eyes are compared to large glasses). His name can even mean "Dragonfly".
  • Boisterous Weakling: Yanma talks loudly, looks strong and intimidating but is pretty weak, resorting to his Dark Bring and a gun to fight and losing swiftly to Elie in short order.
  • Butt-Monkey: They are the weakest of the three main villainous groups sans Demon Card.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Kawara's weapon is an iron bar, which he uses against his half-petrified opponents.
  • Cute Monster Boy: Gob is much fairer than his fellow Oni, as gleefully noted by Reina's follower Range.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Yanma, while holding Elie gunpoint, informs Ogre of her and tells her how they're going to use her powers for the Mermaid Cannon. Elie retorts by pointing out that if she's so important to them he cannot afford to harm her and proceeds to curb-stomp him.
  • The Dragon: Kawara is the strongest of the group and comes pretty close to killing Haru. Gob also provides the brains to Ogre when it comes to machinery.
  • Jerkass: Yanma is loud and obnoxious, and also sadistically torture the mermaids by telling them that they have burned alive the males, only to reveal that he was joking.
  • Meaningful Name: Kawara is named after the Onigawara, a Oni-faced tile used as a Gargoyle, while Gob's name comes from Goblin.
  • Mind over Matter: Gob's Dark Bring, "Sky High", allows him to remotely control and float items in battle.
  • Not So Harmless: Gob looks weak and unimpressive compared to the other three members, but he's not to be underestimated.
  • Oh, Crap!: Kawara has an epic one when he meets Haru's Death Glare right before being defeated, while Gocco is shocked when Let manages to smash the wall he's hiding in during their combat.
  • Our Demons Are Different: The Oni seems more technologically advanced than the previously seen Demonoids and can move and breathe freely underwater.
  • Power Perversion Potential: Yanma's Dark Bring, Double Vista, allows him to see through anything. That includes seeing women naked and reading minds.
  • Right-Hand Attack Dog: Kawara rides a huge horned fish in battle.
  • The Smart Guy: Gob is the smarter of the gang and responsible for the Mermaid Cannon.
  • Taken for Granite: Kawara's Dark Bring, Stone Roses, slowly petrifies the enemy he touches.
  • Undying Loyalty: Gocco loses his stoic façade when Yanma insinuated that Ogre may punish them all by shooting the cannon at them.
  • Wall Master: Gocco's ability granted by the Dark Bring "Through the Wall".

     The Six Guards 

The elite members of the Blue Guardians along with Hardner's second in command, Renard. They were specifically chosen to oppose the Oracion Seis and are named after animals. They are Requin, Leopard, Giraffe, Lievre, Koala and Chien Vivirrien.

  • Acid Pool: Requin's powers make him a mobile, living Acid Pool.
  • Action Girl: Both Renard and Leopard are very skilled in combat, the latter giving a hard time to Haru, Let and Musica and even defeating Julia, while the former defeated a former Oracion Seis without sustaining any visible injury.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: When cornered by a very pissed off Haru, Koala ends up crying like a little child and wetting himself, to the point that a disgusted Haru lets him go.
  • An Axe to Grind: Despite her petite appearence, Renard's weapon is a gigantic labrys Axe.
  • Anchors Away: Requin's weapon, enforcing his shark motif.
  • Animal Motif: It is mostly seen in the behaviour and design of the Six Guards: Sharks for Requin (Shark-like collar, sea-themed weapon, very dangerous), Giraffe for Giraffe (long-necked, his pants have spots resembling those of a giraffe), Leopards/Cats for Leopard (very cat-like behaviour and mouth, has spot-like tattoos), Hare for Lievre (dons a hare-costume and is surprisingly nimble), Koala for Koala (lazy and with a koala-like face) and Tanuki/Raccoon Dog for Chien Vivirrien (Leaf on his head, fat and wears a small drum on his shoulder. The motif on his shirt recalls the Tanuki's oversized testicles).
  • Asshole Victim: Koala is gutted by Lucia while he's distracted.
  • Berserk Button: Leopard cannot stand bugs and is irritated when Elie calls her one. She also goes all out when Nagisa and Elie points out that her Electrical Dress gave her two antennae-like hairstrands and made her even more buglike.
  • Bishōnen: Giraffe is one, despite his slightly longer than usual neck.
  • Breath Weapon: Lievre's Dark Bring, Hard Breath, turns his breath into a devastating, if stinky, weapon.
  • The Brute: Chien and Lievre are the powerhouses of the team and rely mostly on brute force. Chien even carries a wooden club with him.
  • Cat Girl: Leopard is very cat-like in behaviour, as seen when she purrs when Giraffe pats her.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Chien's Dark Bring can forcibly put people to sleep for seven hours, giving him plenty of time to pummel on them while they are unable to fight back.
  • Dark Action Girl: Renard and Leopard fits the bill. The latter is even capable of besting Julia in combat.
  • Depraved Dwarf: Koala is one of the worst scumbags of the story, and is quite diminutive, even though he claims he's not a child.
  • Dirty Old Man: Lievre's a huge pervert, not unlike Ogre. At least Ogre didn't try to strip and grope his female opponents in combat.
  • Facepalm of Doom: How Requin almost kills Julia. Also, how Chien threatens Branch.
  • Fat Bastard: Chien is obese, a nod the the Tanuki, and very brutal and unpleasant, with his knack for whaling on sleeping people.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: Requin is tricked by Julia to turn his body in acid while they're falling from the airship and has his Dark Bring stolen. Unable to turn back into solid form, he's dispersed and scattered.
  • Glass Cannon: Koala can be easily defeated, but first you have to bypass his mecha defenses.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Subverted with Chien: when Ruby bounces back his sleep powers on him he can still fight in his sleep, and is even more dangerous than before. Played straigth by Requin, who's tricked into turning liquid while falling from a great height.
  • Kick the Dog: After spending most of his screentime caring for Leopard, Giraff kills her brutally when she loses to Elie.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Leopard in incredibly fast and hits hard upon covering herself with wind. Literally with Renard, who can move and attack like a laser beam with her Dark Bring.
  • Light Is Not Good: Renard wields the Dark Bring Lightning, which gives her light-based powers.
  • Magic Pants: Invoked, Requin's pants and shoes are made on measure, so he doesn't melt them with his Hollywood Acid.
  • Mini-Mecha: Koala's Dark Bring, Machinery, allows him to manipulate machines and create mechas and vehicles out of thin air, making him and annoyingly formidable opponent.
  • Neck Snap: How Lievre is defeated by Julia during their first match. He recovers just in time for Haru to snap his neck again.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: Requin is deadly serious and far more threatening than his colleagues.
  • No-Sell: Normally, Leopard's Dark Bring allows her to counter magic by "wearing" it like a dress. Too bad it doesn't work with Etherion.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: When Chien is introduced he looks like a loud, sleepy Fat Idiot. He then proceed to reveal some insight when he istantly see through Branch's bluff and tricks the heroes into leading them to the Rebels hideout.
  • Oh, Crap!: Usually when they realize that their opponent is about to turn the tables on them and win the battle.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Lievre is a sexist pervert who thinks that women are weak and unable to fight if stripped naked. Julia proves him wrong by kicking his ass bare-chested.
  • Single-Stroke Battle: Lievre recovers from his broken neck in time to run into Haru, who promptly deals with him in one blow.
  • The Stoic: Koala doesn't have a really wide variety of facial expression. The same goes for Requin.
  • Verbal Tic: Koala often peppers his sentences with "Mmmhh..", while Leopard usually states that she "likes/doesn't like X".
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Requin when in combat, though his fanged cape doesn't cover much.
  • Wolverine Claws: Leopard's weapons, reinforcing her cat motif.

Other Characters


A minor character who plays the Straight Man to Nakajima in the Flash Forward mini-strips "Levin Minds the House". Levin is left by his parents in the care of the strange creature Nakajima. The question of his parentage is supposed to keep people in suspense. He's Haru and Elie's son.

  • Babies Ever After: He's Haru and Elie's son.
  • Forgetful Jones: He's prone to amnesia so he can't remember his parents. Nakajima torments him by telling him lies about them. He got the bad memory from his mother.
  • Straight Man: To Nakajima, poor Levin.

We don't know what he is, but there's a lot of them

A strange plant person who grows on Haru's house. He's some sort of bizarre insectivorous sunflower, but even though he's a plant he refuses to admit this. In the side-comics, he babysits Levin, mostly via tormenting him.

Voiced by: Kosuke Okano

  • Bizarre Alien Biology: He can move only when others don't see him and can reproduce asexually despite having parents.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: His attempts at trying to sound worldly comes as across as this.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: His species are immobile legless plants but live in a normal-looking village affixed to houses and manage to go about normal human lives, but only offscreen, with no explanation about how they do it.
  • Plant Person: A sunflower...thing.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Bugs, and ramen.
  • Truly Single Parent: He gives birth to a child, which horrifies poor Levin, which puts the plausibility of Nakajima having two parents into further confusion.

How well does it match the trope?
