The Jersey Club

    In General 
  • Intimate Marks: Their Memoria marks are all located in a private area of their bodies. Madoka's is located on the right side of her low back, a little over her butt; Lan's is located next to her left breast; Muginami's is located in her crotch.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: The way the three interact gives off a huge three-way relationship vibe. In one episode of the second season, they share kisses in the lips.

    Madoka Kyouno
Voiced by: Kaori Ishihara (Japanese) and Kira Buckland (English)

The Heroine of the series, an optimistic, kind-hearted and very energetic girl attending a One-Gender School. She's devoted to her hometown and to the duties of the Jersey Club, of which she was its sole member. When given the choice to pilot the Humongous Mecha to protect Kamogawa, in a change of pace she readily accepts, maintaining her usual cheerful demeanor the entire time. She rides the Vox Aura, a wind-elemental machine she calls "Midori", which was later armed with a sword and an energy shield.

  • Accidental Misnaming: As a Running Gag, she can't seem to remember Villagiulio's name. In Season 2, she opts for "Giuvi-nii" instead.
  • The Ace: She seems to be good at everything, except Barehanded Blade Blocks.
  • Accidental Public Confession: In Episode 18, while trapped in an escape capsule in Yurikano's body, Madoka hits the emergency transmitter, causing her to broadcast her musings to everyone in the ongoing space battle. Said musings include the reasons behind Yurikano's sacrifice. She also lets Lan and Muginami know that she's actually Madoka, through a variation of "No One Else Is That Dumb".
  • Badass Adorable: Energetic, lively, friendly, and more than ready to fight to defend her friends and hometown.
  • Batter Up!: Madoka bats away a flying newspaper dispenser using a ripped-from-the-ground streetlight.
  • Berserk Button: No one will get away with insulting or harming her comrades.
  • Book Dumb: She sucks at math.
  • Character Tic: She makes an air circle and says “perfect” while doing so, in a drawn out manner.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: She doesn't find anything wrong with going to school in her swimsuit.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Madoka uses a ripped electrical line to try and choke Kirius' Ovus Libertas. Of course, since it's a robot, it doesn't do any good- besides driving Kirius into a panic attack, thinking the ineffective choking might be a "finishing move" he doesn't know about.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Madoka just happened to wear a swimsuit under her school uniform the day she sees someone drowning.
  • Curtains Match the Windows: Mundane variant, matching brown hair and eyes.
  • Destructive Savior: Madoka consciously does her best to avoid wrecking things, but sometimes her powers result in destruction anyway.
  • Determinator: Not just with fighting robots, but in general.
  • Embarrassing Tattoo: Her Vox mark is located right on her buttcheek. Yoko has no qualms scrutinizing the area at length.
  • Establishing Character Moment: The very first line of the series is also this for Madoka, set to a heartwarmingly beautiful ocean sunrise:
    "Today I pray for the happiness of everybody."
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Lan and Muginami certainly seem to have the hots for her.
  • Expressive Hair: In Episode 19, her ponytail reacts to her attempts to study.
  • Extracurricular Enthusiast: Her defining quirk. Her club is the "Jersey Club", the primary activity of which is being involved in every other extracurricular, where needed.
  • Falling into the Cockpit: Originally pilots her Vox without having any idea how to really use it.
  • Famed in Story: By Season 2, everyone knows of her exploits in defense of Kamogawa. Some (female) patrons in Hiroshi's beachside restaurant even blush when they see her. This also applies to Kirius and friends to some degree. At the end of the series she even receives a call from the Secretary-General of the United Nations.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: When wearing her jersey (i.e. pretty much all the time), Madoka has the right leg and left sleeve rolled up.
  • First Name Ultimatum: Madoka doesn't like it that her uncle is drinking in daylight, especially with a complete stranger.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: With Yurikano in Season 2, thanks to a Polyhedron project intended to give them full control of the Vox Aura.
  • Genki Girl
  • The Glomp: A justified example- at the beginning of Episode 13 when she sees Lan for the first time in almost a year, Madoko's enthusiastic greeting knocks her off her feet and causes Color Failure. In Episode 14, she manages to catch Lan and Muginami simultaneously with a double-glomp that knocks both of them to the floor.
  • Hard Head: While piloting, Madoka hits her forehead against Aura's controls. It does little more than give her a small bruise.
  • The Heroine
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: In Episode 6, when the Vox units receive actual weaponry, Madoka ends up with a sword.
  • Heroic BSoD: In Episode 11 when Yoko is crushed by a fallen mecha. She nearly ends the world as a result.
  • I Call It "Vera": Madoka calls Vox Aura "Midorin" due to its green color scheme. The English equivalent would be calling it "Greenie".
  • Improvised Weapon: A practitioner of the technique.
  • Jumped at the Call: As long as it helps her friend, Madoka doesn't mind piloting a robot for the first time in her life to defeat alien forces.
    • She briefly gets upset when she has to pilot again at the start of Season 2, but she quickly gets over it.
  • The Kirk: To Lan’s The Spock.
  • Nice Girl: Unconditionally kind to everyone and anyone. Then again, one has to wonder if she really has any other friends aside from Lan and Muginami (which is confirmed in Episode 10).
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Activating the Rinne the first time was obviously a very bad thing, as it destroyed a lot of ships, buildings, and such. And when she does it again, the world basically ends up being swallowed and almost destroyed.
  • No Social Skills: She seems to have absolutely no tact at all. If she wants to ask someone a question, she barges straight into wherever they are and immediately starts grilling them. Even if that someone is the head of a galactic federation in the middle of a peace talk. She also appears to have no clue that someone might be trying to deceive her or pick up on Dizelmine's rather blatant brush off of a question she asks him.
  • Ordinary High-School Student: Before she stumbled upon Lan and the Vox Aura, she was a normal teenager.
  • Missing Mom: It's established her mother drowned ten years ago when she tried to rescue someone. Episode 24 reveals that, in her desperation to see her mother, Madoka tried to head out to sea, and would have drowned herself were it not for Vox Aura's appearance, which (to her) is a sign from her mother telling her to live on.
  • Nephewism: Lives with her uncle.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: The disguise she used in Episode 16 consisted of a pair of glasses and Girlish Pigtails. Nobody was fooled.
  • Panty Shot: In the first episode, when her cousin, Yoko, forcfully drops Madoka's pants to check for a Vox tattoo on her butt.
  • Percussive Maintenance: In Season 2, she reactivates Aura by hitting it. It's implied that it only activated that way because she wanted to, rather than because it was necessary.
  • Plucky Girl
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives one to both Dizelmine and Villaguilo in Season 2 after punching them in the gut.
  • Schoolgirl Lesbian
  • Tender Tears: At the end of Season 1, the otherwise energetic, cheerful Madoka struggles to complete her Character Tic through tears before breaking down crying after she sees Lan off, leaving her all alone (with Muginami having already left earlier).
  • 10-Minute Retirement: Astelia bans her from piloting in Episode 8 due to the possibility of causing The End of the World as We Know It. At the end of Season 1, Vox Aura stops working completely. Neither lasts.
  • Verbal Tic: Madoka always says "maru", which means "Tick", "Circle" or "Perfect" in English (so named because "O" is right and "X" is wrong in Japanese game shows), and may also be a pun on her name, which can also mean circle.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: Madoka does, albeit for sleepwear.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Her solution to a robot menace? Defeat it using a German Suplex. Enemy is nearly four times your size? Give it a triple suplex with your friends. Your buddies are fighting? Give them both lariats.

    Laffinty Fin E Ld Si/"Lan"
Voiced by: Asami Seto (Japanese) and Michelle Ruff, credited as "Sophie Roberts" (English)

Madoka's first alien friend, a strange and quiet girl who happens to be a princess from a faraway planet. Lan essentially serves as the antithetical counterbalance to Madoka's blatant cheerfulness. She pilots Vox Rympha, or "Orca" as she calls it, a water-elemental machine later armed with a sword-machine gun hybrid which can fire 120mm shots and energy shield.

  • Adorkable: She's overly serious, socially inept, super clumsy and easily embarrassed. How could anyone not find her adorable?
  • Animal Motifs: Lan names her Vox Orca, keeps two Orca whales stuffed animals in her room and her pajama has an Orca whale in it.
  • Catchphrase: "Wan", which sounds similar to her nickname, and is the Japanese onomatopoeia for "Woof", and becomes Woof in the dub. Turns out that Astelia lied to her and told her it was an Earth greeting.
  • Character Tic: A Faux Paw to go with her catch phrase, "wan/woof".
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Romantic Two-Girl Friendship example. Lan gets notably upset when she sees her new friend Madoka is getting along with Muginami and goes as far as transferring to their school so Muginami doesn't spend more time with Madoka than she does.
  • The Comically Serious: Much of her humor comes from her attempts at being The Stoic failing miserably as she's repeatedly put in situations that get her nervous and embarrassed.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: When she tries her hand at being a waitress, she cannot stop dropping the dishes, falling over, and embarrassing herself. Hilariously, this makes her a popular waitress at Hiroshi's shop.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: She eventually warms up to Madoka as they become friends.
  • Emotionless Girl: Subverted. She's not emotionless, just a bit too serious and awkward when expressing how she feels.
  • Fish out of Water: Lan is a Human Alien who has never been on Earth before and has trouble getting used to Earthling customs. For example, she greets people by barking like a dog (because she was told Earthlings do that) and holds a baseball bat the wrong way.
  • Flower in Her Hair: She wears a white flower on the left side of her hair.
  • I Call It "Vera": She names her Vox "Orca".
  • Leotard of Power: She's required to wear it during missions.
  • Mind Rape: Undergoes this at the start of Season 2 (Moid assures her it’s For Science!), and it would have caused permanent damage, if not for Villagiulio's attack on the station she was on. The worst part is that it's implied she was willing... despite the obvious pain it was causing her.
  • Morph Weapon: Vox Rympha receives a cross between a sword and a machine gun later in the series.
  • New Transfer Student: She transfers into Madoka's class at the end of Episode 4 because she wanted to join the Jersey Club.
  • Not So Stoic: Lan tries to keep a straight face, but her emotions shine through way too easily. Her stoic facade being cracked off-duty is somewhat of a Running Gag.
  • Overly Long Name: Her full name is Fin E Ld Si Laffinty. For this reason, most people just call her Lan.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Hinting her status as princess of Le Garite.
  • The Quiet One: She doesn't talk much and only says what is needed.
  • Rei Ayanami Expy: Downplayed. Lan is a blue-haired, pale-skinned, purple-eyed alien princess who pilots a Humongous Mecha. When Madoka first meets her, Lan is stoic, mysterious and acts a bit weird. Once Madoka befriends her, however, Lan quickly reveals she's Not So Stoic and much of her initial odd behavior comes from being misinformed about Earth culture. She opens up to Madoka soon enough and becomes more expressive in general.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Despite being a Princess, she is remarkably eager to fight on the battlefield with her Humongous Mecha.
  • Sheltered Aristocrat: Due to her luxurious upbringing as princess of the planet Le Garite, Lan has few understanding of the commoners' lifestyle.

Voiced by: Ai Kayano (Japanese) and Karen Strassman (English)

A mysterious, yet ultimately somewhat ditzy and idealistic girl and younger sister of Villagiulio. She is the pilot of Vox Ignis, or "Fuupo" as she calls it, a fire-elemental mecha armed with a pair of energy guns which she can fuse into a sword.

  • Badass Cape: A later upgrade to her Vox Ignis in Season 2.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Part of the reason why she loves and respects Villagiulio is that he's the closest thing to family she ever had.
  • Big Brother Worship: She adores her adoptive older brother Villagiulio more than anything. Even after he pushes her away by calling her a parasite, Muginami can't bring herself to even be mad at him and ends up continuing to support him.
  • Caped Mecha: Ignis becomes this in Season 2, using an energy cape as a shield.
  • Catchphrase: "Kashikomari!" ("Roger that!")
  • Character Tic: A rather normal one compared to her two comrades- her salute.
  • The Ditz: When the teacher introduces her to Madoka's class, she keeps repeating "I'm Muginami!"
  • Double Weapon: Receives a double bladed sword as her Vox weapon, formed out of a pair of energy guns.
  • Expy: A blatant one in appearance, name-similarity and personality to Tsumugi "Mugi" Kotobuki from K-On!, with the already impressive rack exaggerated to Gag Boobs level.
  • Gainaxing: The main source of it on the show.
  • I Call It "Vera": She nicknames Vox Ignis "Fuupo", which in certain Chinese dialects means "amber".
  • Irony: She promised to get revenge for Lan during the baseball game. Come Episode 6:
    "You haven't considered my feelings one bit! No one asked you to get my revenge!"
    • Of course, Muginami was trying to get Lan to warm up to her by being warm and playful. Madoka was trying to kill Muginami's most important person (albeit cause he is the sort-of Big Bad).
  • Living with the Villain: Muginami, as a spy for Villaguilio, wants to have this relationship with Madoka and Lan. Subverted when she joins them for good.
  • The Load: Villagiulio outright calls her this to his organization. Subverted- it's likely that Villagiulio only called her this because he doesn't want her to suffer the way he did.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Muginami has the biggest bust of the main trio. She also gets more nude scenes than Madoka and Lan.
  • New Transfer Student: She transfers into Madoka's class at the start of Episode 4.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: She plays at being an airhead to throw suspicions off herself.
  • Only One Name: She's the only main character without a surname because she's an orphan.
  • Pretty in Mink: Wears a fluffy fur coat over a corset.
  • Public Exposure: One episode has her posing for the art class while wearing nothing but a blanket. Then a Cute Clumsy Girl pulls the blanket off and Muginami ends up naked in front of the entire class.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches down to about her hips.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Suspected, but averted. Muginami worries that she may be nothing but a replacement of Yurikano, Villagiulio's blood-related sister, in his eyes. He ultimately tells her that she is unique, and he'll be her big brother as long as he lives.
  • Stepford Smiler: Despite her cheerfulness, she hides quite a sad side to her. Even when she's on the receiving end of Villagiulio's "The Reason You Suck" Speech, she's still smiling.
  • Street Urchin: She grew up in Prison Planet as an orphan struggling to survive in a place filled with garbage and needing to steal food to eat.
  • Vapor Wear: If Episode 7 is any indicator, she apparently doesn't wear a bra.
  • Waif-Fu: Blink and you'll miss it, but she's shown to be quite capable with close quarters combat, easily wiping the floor with an entire group of Le Garite soldiers when attempting to rescue Madoka from the Vox Core.


Residents of Kamogawa

    Yoko Nakaizumi
Voiced by: Mamiko Noto (Japanese) and Wendee Lee (English)

Madoka's older cousin and a tough woman who refuses to let crap get to her, or anyone for that matter. Appears to know a bit more about the Vox units than she should, given her profession. She was also the original founder of the Jersey Club before Madoka took over.

  • Aloof Big Sister: Acts like one to Madoka, although they're cousins.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Madoka, whenever she's free to express her feelings.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: She does this verbally to Madoka.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: How she stops Moid's gloating and apprehends him. Mostly offscreen, unfortunately.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While she is fairly irritable and a bit physically assertive, she's well-meaning and doesn't let petty things get in the way if Madoka truly wants to pilot the Vox.
  • Oblivious to Love: Apparently has no idea that her assistant is interested in her.
  • Out of Focus: Throughout Season 2, she loses a lot of prominence and barely has lines each episode.
  • Parental Substitute: Served as this to Madoka after her mother died, and taught her an astonishing amount of her "jersey spirit". It's quite the surprising change to see her with the front ponytail and jersey when contrasted with her brash and mellow personality.
  • Scars Are Forever: The collapsed mecha that fell on her leaves a big one.
  • Walking the Earth: Joins Astelia at the end of the series in researching an anomaly in Bermuda related to the Rin-ne.

    Hiroshi Nakaizumi
Voiced by: Kenji Hamada (Japanese) and Kirk Thornton, credited as "Bubba Chow" (English)

Madoka's uncle and Yoko's father.

  • Badass Longcoat: Parodied- he gets into a fight with Villagiulio over one but loses. They settle the argument by getting sauced on the beach.
  • Fun with Acronyms: His shop, ''Be With Hiroshi" (BWH, or Bust-Waist-Hip measurements).
  • Manly Tears: During Kirius and Array farewell party, he is unexpectedly the first to break down in tears.
  • Nice Guy: He takes Madoka in after her mother dies, offers the other members of the Jersey Club jobs and a room about half way through the first season, opens a new cafe down on the beach and hires the first season villains to run it because they needed a chance, makes the Jersey Club's lunches when they leave for an extended trips, and is tore up when Kirius and Array decide to leave for home.

    Machiko Iwabuchi
Voiced by: Azumi Asakura (Japanese) and Dorothy Elias Fahn, credited as "Midge Mayes" (English)

Madoka's homeroom teacher and a former member of the Jersey Club.

    Souta Serizawa
Voiced by: Yuuichi Iguchi (Japanese) and J.C. Miller (English)

Yoko's assistant.


    Sachi Nogami & Michi Kondo 
''Voiced by: Rikako Yamaguichi (Sachi), Suzuko Mimori (Michi) (Japanese) and Cristina Vee (Sachi) and Christine Marie Cabanos (Michi)

Madoka's two classmates.

  • Those Two Girls: They're completely irrelevant to the plot and only show up talking to Madoka every once in the while to give the idea of what her normal life was like before Lan and Muginami came along.

    Shozo Tadokoro
Voiced by: Makoto Yasumura (Japanese) and Patrick Seitz (English)

Commander of the Pharos, a research facility run by Novumundos. Rather put upon.

    Eri Watabe
Voiced by: Rie Tanaka (Japanese) and Laura Post (English)

Retired JSDF operative, captain of the Pharos, and its chief navigation and reconnaissance officer.

    Haruka Uehara
Voiced by: Ayumi Fujimura (Japanese) and Erika Harlacher (English)

A bridge officer of the Pharos and the voice of its command prompt system.

    Astelia Lizamarie de Rochefort
Voiced by: Hisako Kanemoto (Japanese) and Stephanie Sheh (credited as Saki Shin) (English)

The granddaughter of Novumundos' chairman.

  • The Atoner: She's the one inadvertently responsible for the disaster 20,000 years ago, and is now finding ways to at least repair some of the damage she has unwittingly caused under Moid's warping influence.
  • Covert Pervert: Really seems to be a well-composed and elegant young lady... then starts groping Madoka with relative consistency.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: It's even in the title of the episode she first appears in.
  • Fiction 500: Novomundos is powerful enough that she can force the President of the United States into compliance by threatening to have him replaced.
  • Flashback Echo: Gets this when viewing an ancient stone tablet about the Vox, from her past self Queen Maycun.
  • Fountain of Youth: She used to be the grown queen Maycun, but was reincarnated as a child.
  • Walking Spoiler: It is later revealed that she is the reincarnation of Queen Maycun, the one who caused the catastrophe that nearly destroyed the world, and much of her development centers around this, making her difficult to discuss.
  • Walking the Earth: Joins Yoko at the end of the series in researching an anomaly in Bermuda related to the Rin-ne.
  • Wise Beyond Her Years: For a little girl who is merely the chairman’s granddaughter, she acts very much like the president of the organization. Subverted, as she's Really 700 Years Old.

De Metrio and Kiss

    Lord Villagiulio De Metrio Lu
Voiced by: Yuuichi Nakamura (Japanese) and Keith Silverstein (English)

The main antagonist of the series, older brother of Muginami (adopted) and Yurikano (true-blooded), and the former crown prince of De Metrio turned leader of outlaw organization "Kiss". For some reason or another is quite into capturing the Vox units. He pilots the Ovus Avarium, a heavy-duty mecha armed with a pair of anchors stored in each arm, a pair of large swords, and a large mortar gun.

  • Badass Longcoat: Parodied — he gets into a fight with Hiroshi over one. He won and wears it from that point onward.
  • Big Bad: He is the leader of the enemy organization Kiss who wants to capture the Vox units and destroy Le Garite, though Dizelmine takes the position from him later on, and both of them are pawns of Moid.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: Built up as this with Dizelmine in Season 2, but subverted in that he makes a Heel–Face Turn, while Dizelmine becomes a mindless puppet of Moid.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: In Season 2, he ultimately proves to be a lesser threat to Dizelmine, and Moid behind him.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Eventually joins up with Novumundos against the Polyhedron Federation, not that he was much of a villain to begin with.
  • Noble Fugitive: He's a deposed prince. Subverted in Season 2, where he takes the throne of De Metrio. Then at the very end he formally abdicates to spend more time with Dizelmine and help mend their broken friendship.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Has some shades of this in Season 1, but becomes more overt in Season 2. In particular, he's more levelheaded such as when Muginami goes off to see Madoka without informing De Metrio's forces and does everything he can to honor the agreements his made despite Dizelmine's plans otherwise.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: He is a former prince who leads his organization in battle.
  • Shoo the Dog: When he hears that Muginami made the Vox Ignis hers without his permission to help Kiss, he calls her a parasite and totally useless for Kiss. While his harsh words leave Muginami in tears and Madoka pissed at him, it's more than implied that he did that to keep Muginami away from Kiss so she doesn't become an outlaw like him.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: He used to be nothing like what he has become as of the present. He was in the exact same position as Muginami — poor, starving, and gentle.
  • Villains Out Shopping: The first we see much of him for more than a second, he's in a well-mannered bout with Hiroshi over a fur coat, which he eventually buys.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Used to have this relationship with Dizelmine.

    Izo Sofiro Karia Los
Voiced by: Hiroyuki Yoshino (Japanese) and Ben Diskin (English)

The rather Hot-Blooded and rebellious but caring member of the trio from De Metrio's forces who have made an alliance with Kiss. He pilots the Ovus Voluntas, a close-range machine using a pair of heat clubs and a force field for defense.

  • Accidental Pervert: Yurikano mentions there was an incident where she jumped out of the shower after seeing a mouse and clung to Izo while completely naked.
  • Breakout Character: He's the protagonist of the Prequel manga Dawn of Memoria.
  • Fiery Redhead: He's the most hot-headed member of the De Metrio's forces and fittingly, he has red hair.
  • Dual Wielding: The Voluntas' twin heat clubs.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has one on his left brow. He got that during a fencing match with Yurikano at the beginning of Dawn of Memoria.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Alongside Kirius and Array near the end of Season 1, when they decide to help the Jersey Club against Villagiulio.
  • I Choose to Stay: Decides to remain on Earth for good, and further pursue his aspirations as a chef. Possibly subverted later since he's seen at Lan's Awesome Moment of Crowning.
  • P.O.V. Boy, Poster Girl: Initially the P.O.V. boy to Yurikano's poster girl during Dawn of Memoria.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Kirius' blue.
  • Stay with the Aliens: From his perspective, he decides to stay with the humans. In fact, he is the only one to do so by the end of Season 2, while Kirius and Array go off to other planets.
  • Supporting Protagonist: Of the Dawn of Memoria manga, where much of the story is told from his perspective.
  • Team Chef: His job when he begins working on Earth in the BWH club.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Watches a samurai movie, then tries to challenge Madoka on a duel repeating what he saw, never realizing that he accidentally fooled the entire school into thinking that he's her boyfriend.

    Kirius Racus Lestine Ha
Voiced by: Kenji Nojima (Japanese) and Johnny Yong Bosch (English)

The more stoic member of the trio from De Metrio's forces who have made an alliance with Kiss, as well as the oldest and most sensible of the trio. He pilots Ovus Libertas, armed with a metal staff, heat-based whip-swords, and an energy field.

  • Chick Magnet: As his part-time job as waiter at Hiroshi's beach house can attest to.
  • Dual Wielding: Has a pair of heat swords as part of the Libertas' arsenal.
  • Fish out of Water: He largely misunderstands Earth culture... and thinks Madoka's poor piloting decisions are standard Earth techniques.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Alongside Izo and Array near the end of Season 1, when they decide to help the Jersey Club against Villagiulio.
  • I Meant to Do That: He claims his sword attacks failed to finish off Vox Aura due to them being nonlethal techniques.
  • Impoverished Patrician: He is the head of a noble family that's fallen on hard times.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Keeps a really long hair tied into a ponytail.

    Array Danon Ci
Voiced by: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Japanese) and Sam Riegel (English)

The third member of the trio from De Metrio's forces who have made an alliance with Kiss, as well as the youngest and most effeminate of the three. He pilots Ovus Teneritas, armed with a pair of shoulder cannons and a force field.

  • Attractive Bent-Gender: He passes off as a girl so easily that it's a genuine surprise when he turns out to have been Asteria’s maid the whole time. In Episode 9, some guy even starts flirting with him even after being told he was a guy.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: As much of a competent pilot he is, he enjoys wearing a maid outfit.
  • Dragged into Drag: Somehow, the poor guy wound up as a maid, complete with female maid outfit. Despite this, he doesn't take it off after that episode, and he seems to almost like the outfit.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: He's frequently confused for a girl.
  • Fetish: Maid outfits. Guess what he wears most of the time.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Alongside Izo and Kirius near the end of Season 1, when they decide to help the Jersey Club against Villagiulio.
  • Meido: Becomes this as Astelia's maid.
  • New Meat: A source of initial tension between him and Yurikano during the former's cadet days in Dawn of Memoria is that Array is too eager to prove that he can already fly an Ovid by himself.
  • Shoulder Cannons: Wields a pair of them as part of the Teneritas' arsenal.
  • Stay with the Aliens: From his perspective, he decides to stay with the humans, although this is subverted near the end of Season 2 when he decides to leave.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: He never took the maid outfit off. Not even when Season 2 begins. During a jaunt at a haunted house, he even wore a Japanese Cute Ghost Girl costume.

    Yurikano De Metrio Lu
Voiced by: Mariya Ise (Japanese) and Carrie Keranen, credited as "Evelyn Lantto" (English)

Villaguilio's younger sister with some feelings for Dizelmine, who apparently perished in an incident a few years prior to the start of the series.

  • Ace Pilot: Apparently, she was one before her Heroic Sacrifice. When her soul is brought back to the world, she says her skills have apparently dulled somewhat... but she's still damn good.
  • All There in the Manual: Dawn of Memoria, a Prequel manga with an initial focus on Yurikano, actually began serialization before the anime aired. This makes her appearances in Season 1 somewhat less confusing for Japanese viewers who were reading the manga.
  • Apocalypse Maiden
  • Back from the Dead: A Double Subversion. It's just a matter of a well-timed "Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!" moment in the Rin-ne to bring her soul back to the body. Unfortunately, the method used has a rather nasty side-effect. She disappears once more... only to return for good at the end of the series, after Madoka and friends convinced her to stay in the material world with Dizelmine.
  • Barrier Maiden: Her presence in Rin-ne allows her to intervene when Madoka tries to use the full power of Vox Aura.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Name dropped in Season 1, and later on has two brief appearances before her increased role in Season 2.
  • Disappears into Light: Even after her revival, she vanishes completely. She tries to disappear again in the finale, so she could stay with Dizelmine in the Rin-ne. Madoka convinces them to return to the realm of the living.
  • Empty Shell: In season 2, someone with her exact likeness appears, but she doesn't seem to be her. It's suspected that that girl is just a clone. It's really the body.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: With Madoka.
  • Genki Girl: During her happier days at the Dawn of Memoria manga.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: To stop the war between Le Garite and De Metrio, she traps her own soul inside the Rin-ne. Forever. She's nonplussed to find out that somebody is capable of accessing Rin-ne through Vox Aura.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Subverted. Her memory is not "lost" — her soul is not there to begin with due to being trapped in the Rin-ne.
  • Perfectly Arranged Marriage: With Dizelmine, which was ultimately cancelled.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Madoka accuses her of not explaining the reasons behind her Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Posthumous Character: She's already dead via Heroic Sacrifice before the beginning of the series. All Polyhedron characters except Grania has a fond memory of her. Then zigzagged as someone with her exact likeness appears, but it's revealed that it's really her body, without her soul. And then her soul is brought back to Madoka's body, so she's not virtually-dead anymore. And then she Disappears into Light so she's virtually-dead again. And then she comes back for real at the end.
  • P.O.V. Boy, Poster Girl: The poster girl to Izo's P.O.V. boy during Dawn of Memoria.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Izo, Kirius and Array are equally surprised to learn that she is their student-instructor during their academy days in Dawn of Memoria.
  • Something Only They Would Say: When the De Metrio trio encounters her in Madoka's body, they ask her to do this to prove her identity. When she later speaks to Villaguilio, she becomes Genre Savvy and does this trope without prompting.
  • Tsundere: Type B towards Dizelmine.
  • Walking Spoiler: It is essentially impossible to discuss her without revealing that she is still alive.
  • You Are Worth Hell: Defied as she want to stay in the Rin-ne with the comatose Dizelmine to atone for the extreme damage they caused to the worlds, but Madoka and friends bring them back to the materium.

Villaguilio's second-in-command.

Le Garite and Polyhedron Federation (Unmarked Spoiler Warning)

    King Dizelmine Fin E Ld Si
Voiced by: Daisuke Ono (Japanese) and Liam O'Brien (English)

The supposed main antagonist of Season 2, Lan's older brother and king of Le Garite. He initially seems to be an ally of Novumundos, but his true objective is making use of Madoka and the Voxes to destroy the planet De Metrio, as part of his plan to ensure Le Garite's survival as both planets' respective planetary systems are en-route of collision.

  • Accidental Public Confession: Confesses his love to Yurikano when he thinks that Madoka is still inhabiting her body.
  • Affably Evil
  • Aloof Big Brother
  • Anti-Villain: Of the Well-Intentioned Extremist variant. More than willing to make other peoples' lives a living hell so long as that means his own citizens are safe.
  • The Atoner: According to Astelia, his Plot-Relevant Age Down at the end of the series carries the implication that he may have wished to turn back time so he can set right every wrong he made — the same wish Astelia herself made that turned her into what she is today.
  • Big Bad: Becomes this for Season 2 once his true plans come to light and he becomes a greater threat than Villagulio, though subverted as he is ultimately a pawn to Moid.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: Built up as this with Villagulio in Season 2, but subverted in that he becomes a mindless puppet of Moid, while Villagulio makes a Heel–Face Turn.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Sort of- he is the Final Boss, but in the end he was a pawn of his advisor Moid.
  • Final Boss: Riding Magoltul, he is last opponent the Jersey Club fights directly.
  • Fountain of Youth: At the end of the series, he becomes a little boy.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: He starts out as the Big Good counterpart to Villagulio, but then reveals his plans to destroy the planet De Metrio, then agrees to a ceasefire and truce only to break it later on. Though he ultimately ends up a hero for good after Madoka and friends remind him of his better days.
  • I Have Your Wife: He kidnaps Villaguilio’s sister, which he subtly uses to gain some leverage on Villaguilio.
  • Laughing Mad: In Episode 22, after killing Villagulio in cold blood by stomping on him with his Vox.
  • Older Than He Looks: Returns from Rinne as a young boy, not unlike Queen Maycun. He ends up looking younger than Lan.
  • Psychotic Smirk: Sports one in Episodes 6 and 10 of Season 2.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Hinting his status as king of Le Garite, one of the most powerful persons in this setting.

    Balance T. Moid
Voiced by: Kazuyuki Okitsu (Japanese) and Vic Mignogna (English)

Dizelmine's scientist companion and advisor who was an observator at Pharos during the first season, and since then returned to assist his master. The true antagonist of the series, he used Villagulio as a pawn, manipulated Dizelmine into opening the Rin-ne, and is also responsible for Queen Maycun nearly destroying the Earth 20,000 years ago, all to discover what lies inside the Rin-ne.

  • Based on a Great Big Lie: His story about the Vox machines being weapons of mass destruction was a lie to get Villagulio to oppose Dizelmine, this giving Moid a handy excuse to get Dizelmine to do what he wants.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: He badly wants to discover what's inside the Rin-ne, even if that causes an apocalypse. He got his wish... right after it accepted Madoka's marching song (which he deems dreadful) as its voice.
  • Big Bad: He is the real villain who played both Villagulio and Dizelmine for fools to open the Rin-ne and bring about the apocalypse.
  • Disappears into Light: At the end of the series. Given that this is what happened to Yurikano, it's possible that he may have finally entered Rin-ne after all.
  • Divide and Conquer: He does this by lying about the Vox units, calling them dangerous weapons, so the two kings will fight each other over it, making the king he serves easier to manipulate.
  • Double Agent: Tends to switch allegiances between Le Garite, Novumundos, the Jersey Club trio, and De Metrio on a whim. Ultimately subverted, as he's only in it For Science!
  • Evil All Along: He initially seems to be a friend of Lan and thus a good guy, but is the true mastermind behind the war.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Even when he's being particularly maniacal, such as yelling at Tadokoro because he wants to watch the flowers of the Rin-ne, his eyes remain shut.
    • It's even joked about in the Omake for volume 4. Apparently, while Moid would be quite handsome with his eyes open, it would also herald the end of the world. Of course, this is most likely Dizelmine having a joke at Lan's expense.
    • He finally opens his eyes in the finale. Right before he Disappears into Light.
  • Expy: He is, initially, very reminiscent of Itsuki Koizumi; a benevolent, soft-spoken, and polite ally of the main characters who nevertheless tends to get on their nerves, and can come across as quite sneaky and untrustworthy at times. Both even have Eyes Always Shut. As it later turns out, he is essentially an evil Koizumi.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He always acts eerily polite to everyone he interacts with rarely breaking from his character.
  • For Science!: More than willing to manipulate anyone just to discover what's inside the Rin-ne, even if it caused Queen Maycun to accidentally almost destroy the world.
  • Jabba Table Manners: It is already made clear that there's something off about him, and in the light-hearted Episode 7 the viewer may let their guard down for a second when they see that he ordered a pudding and ice cream platter more beffitting a teenage girl than a man of his age ([at least 20,000 years old, as he turned out to be). And then, for the first time in the show, he becomes genuinely creepy as he mashes the ice cream and pudding into a revolting slurry-like porridge and then consumes it, much to Shozo's horror.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: The series is averse to showing onscreen death, so he just Disappears into Light in the finale, most likely being snatched away into the Rin-ne.
  • Mad Scientist: He causes an entire war in order to bring about an apocalyptic event, just to study it For Science!
  • The Man Behind the Man: To Villagulio, who was an Unwitting Pawn he needed to create an enemy for Diezelmine. He invented the story about the Vox units to provoke Villagulio into attacking Dizelmine.
  • The Man in Front of the Man: Though he supposedly works under Asteria and Diezelmine, he is using them both to fulfill his own plans. In fact, he is the one that turned Queen Maycun, Asteria’s past self, insane.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He's the one who maneuvered Queen Maycun into opening the Rin-ne and unleashing the disaster, and plays Dizelmine like a fiddle to do the same thing.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: He never faces off with Madoka and her friends nor does he have any direct interaction with them.
  • Overarching Villain: He appears in both seasons and is the reason every bad thing has happened.
  • Pass the Popcorn: When the Rin-he is about to open and destroy the world, he sits down and munches on some ice cream and pudding, waiting for the grand finale of the plan he had been orchestrating.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Save for a handful of moments where his composure breaks, he always sports the same smug smile.
  • Psychotic Smirk: Sported many of these during the end, as he anticipates the opening of the Rin-ne.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He's over 20,000 years old, same as Asteria.
  • Shirtless Scene: Doubles as Fan Disservice, because when it happens, it's revealed that the entirety of his torso is tattooed with faux-Memorias. Being in the throes of madness doesn't help.
  • The Stoic: Always seen with either a neutral expression or that creepy grin until Episode 12.
  • Sweet Tooth: Usually delights in eating ice cream, pastries and parfaits.
  • Treacherous Advisor: 20,000 years' worth of treachery under Maycun, Dizelmine, and the Jersey Club's noses.
  • The Unfought: Despite being the mastermind of the whole war, and of the apocalypse in the backstory, the heroines never confront him or even learn of his treachery onscreen, instead fighting Dizelmine as the Final Boss while Moid simply watches and then vanishes.
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left: Attempted, but failed as he Disappears into Light.
  • Villainous Breakdown: In the end, he's visibly angry that Madoka ends up being the voice of the Rin-ne. He quickly gets over it, resolving to start anew... and then promptly Disappears into Light.
  • Walking Spoiler: His role as the true Big Bad, rather than the benevolent-if-weird advisor he seems to be in Season 1, or The Dragon he seems to be in Season 2, makes him this.
