Back to Main. Beware of spoilers!

    open/close all folders 

     The Group 
  • Always Chaotic Evil: With a few exceptions, all of them are terrible irredeemable murderers.
  • Fantastic Racism: Nearly every member has this against humans to some degree.
  • Far East Asian Terrorists: A terrorist organization that's primarily based in Japan.
  • Hypocrite: They repeatedly claim to be in support of monster equality and supremacy over humans, yet spend just as much time oppressing and killing their fellow monsters as they do humans, if not even more so.
  • Knight Templar: They seek to wipe out humanity in favor of monster supremacy, and if their fellow monsters dare to associate with humans or refuse to cooperate with them, Fairy Tale won't hesitate to kill them as well.
  • A Nazi by Any Other Name: They are a group of monsters obsessed with killing off humans, with Social Darwinism as one of their founding principles. Their leader is a borderline messiah figure in their eyes, and she's a Sensor Character who can detect and purge anyone who shows signs of disagreement. Then there are the uniforms...
  • N.G.O. Superpower: They have the resources and manpower to completely conquer and subjugate Mizore's homeland by themselves, have an entire "diplomatic branch" dedicated to infiltrating the human worlds financial and political aspects, and their primary base of operations is a massive flying fortress.
  • Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: Despite their claims that they want monster equality and supremacy over humans, it's clear by their willingness to oppress and kill their fellow monsters that they just want equality and power for themselves.

     Kahlua Shuzen

Kahlua is the second oldest daughter in the Shuzen family, the daughter of Gyokuro Shuzen and the biological sister of Kokoa. Kokoa describes her as the best assassin in the family because of her berserker personality whenever she has to kill someone. Additional to her vampire Super Strength, she's unable to feel pain what makes her even more dangerous. Despite actually having the personality of a pacifist, she would kill anyone when she sheds her Berserker Tears.

  • Affably Evil: She's a very kind person that is sadly stuck with a very lousy parent.
  • Anti-Villain: A Type I. She seems nice enough but if her current job entails killing you, well, that's just the way the cookie crumbles sometimes.
  • Ax-Crazy: When she starts fighting.
  • Back from the Dead: In the final chapter, it's discovered that prior to his final battle, Miyabi/Alucard gave Kahlua her blood to bring her back to live, believing her too pure to die.
  • Berserker Tears: Because she does not enjoy killing, even though it is what she does best.
  • Body Horror: After removing her second limiter, to show off how indestructible her liquid form is she cuts off her own head and the wound has teeth.
  • Bloody Murder: With both her limiters off and using her full power she can use her blood in a shotgun like blast to attack her enemies.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Her first in person appearance is her falling on her face after tripping on her own dress while greeting our heroes before she fights them.
  • Dark Action Girl: She's the Shuzen family's master assassin and is absurdly powerful, even by vampire standards.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Kahlua is the tannest of the Vampire Sisters and has hair whose color appears to be a cross between light blond and very pale green, so it fits. She gets it from her mother.
  • Death Seeker: And she nearly finds it from Kokoa impaling her, but the epilogue implies her survival as Kuyo carries her off with Kiria.
  • The Ditz: When she is not in her "Killer" mode.
  • The Dreaded: She absolutely terrifies Kokoa, and after they see what she's capable of, none of the other main characters are all that thrilled to have to fight her either. Inner Moka, a badass in her own right, came right out and admitted that she didn't stand a chance against Kahlua.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Like Aqua, she truly loves her sisters. Also like Aqua, this won't necessarily save them from her.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: However, it's shown that she does not appreciate being directly ordered to kill her own sisters, particularly if the contract was put out on Kokoa. In fact, when The Dog Bites Back, she actually tells Kokoa that she's so proud of her.
  • Fairytale Wedding Dress: However you look at it, Kahlua's dress looks like something a bride would wear to her wedding (except maybe the boots and the slit).
  • Feel No Pain: If she takes too much damage, her body will fail itself. But she's charmed to feel no pain, so she doesn't know when she's approaching that point.
  • Friendly Enemy: As she's only a Punch-Clock Villain, she holds no ill will towards her opposition.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In the expanded epilogue, she apparently leaves Fairy Tale to rejoin her sisters, as she's shown playing chess and beating up thugs with Aqua who had already made her turn during the final battle with Alucard.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Of a different vein than Tsukune. Without her limiters, she can turn her arms into just about anything with the implication that she might be able to do this with other parts of her body too.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: After removing one of her Power Limiters, Kokoa still manages to defeat her. And then Kahlua removes her second one and goes all out, declaring that Kokoa is ten years too young to defeat her now. Surprisingly enough, Kokoa does manage to defeat her.
  • Immunity Disability: Because she's been charmed to be unable to feel pain, she has no way of knowing how much damage her body's taking until it simply quits on her. In fact, this was what forced Fairy Tale to retreat from Mizore's homeland, as Miyabi realized that she was approaching that limit.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Killed by Kokoa stabbing her in the heart while she's solid.
  • Implacable Woman: Thanks to her inability to feel pain. Taken even further when her limiters are removed and her body is liquid so it's nearly impossible to do any real harm to her. She's only killed when covered in water enough to force her to stay solid.
  • Kicking Ass in All Her Finery: She seems to have no inconvenience fighting in a long dress. Outside of battle however she is prone to tripping over it while walking.
  • Laser-Guided Tyke-Bomb: Her programming led to her trying to kill Moka and Kokoa, her own sisters.
  • Made of Iron: Partially due to her inability to feel pain. She also shrugs off her older sister Aqua's One-Hit Kill.
  • Made of Plasticine: With her limiters removed, her body is more like a liquid than a solid unless she makes part of it solid, shown when she pulls on a shard of ice stuck in her, it nearly tears off her upper torso before she heals from it. Int this state she's nearly impossible to kill she can regenerate from nearly anything and her body isn't solid enough to deal any real damage to.
  • My Girl Is Not a Slut: Hilariously Exaggerated. In the Omake, Gyokuro (who, remember, is her mother) intends to send her on a Honey Trap mission... only to discover that Kahlua doesn't know the first thing about sex. Gyokuro's response? "How old ARE you?!" It doesn't help that only one general of Fairy Tale has an active sex life and none of them can so much as give her The Talk.
  • Parental Favoritism: Is the only one of Gyokuro's daughters whom Gyokuro actually shows something other than complete and utter disdain.
  • Power Limiter: Her earrings. She has two and she only needed to remove one to effortlessly slaughter the heroes.
  • Professional Killer: According to Kokoa, she is considered one of the greatest.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Possibly the most horrific deconstruction ever. She will take any job, regardless of who she has to kill or the toll it takes on her body, and will not stop unless ordered to do so. Despite this, she hates killing, and she will cry the whole time as she does so.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: Without a doubt, she was powerful and dangerous enough to kill Inner Moka. However, it was stated by Miyabi that even if she did kill Inner Moka, Moka would have still inflicted enough heavy wounds on her that she would have eventually died from those wounds in spite of defeating Moka.
  • Shapeshifter Weapon: Her arms can turn into several razor-sharp bat wings.
  • She's Got Legs: Her dress has a slit up the left side.
  • So Proud of You: To Kokoa, when she runs Kahlua through with Ko-chan.
  • Spanner in the Works: Her inability to feel pain actually forced Fairy Tale to retreat from Mizore's homeland. According to Miyabi, if she pressed on she would've gotten herself killed without knowing it.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She looks very similar to her mother Gyokuro, just having longer hair and a not-evil looking face. She REALLY is not evil. On the other hand, you'd wonder why such a crazy woman have a really sweet daughter.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: The only reason she was so loyal to a massive bitch like Gyokuro was because she felt sorry for her mother, knowing that if it weren't for her, Gyokuro would have truly been alone in the world without the love and attention of her husband or children.
  • Undying Loyalty: To her mother Gyokuro, who definitely didn't deserve it. She only did so because she felt sorry for her, knowing that if it weren't her, Gyokuro would have truly been alone in the world without the love and attention of her husband or children.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: As Mizore and Kurumu point out, she's weakened by water just like Moka. When her limiters are removed, it makes her solid enough to damage.
  • Woman in White: It looks white, at the very least.

     Aqua Shuzen

The oldest sister of the Shuzen family, but unlike the others she's adopted and from China. She mastered the Jigen-Tou in young age. Aqua really loves her younger sister Moka and she would kill anyone who would take her away from her. She's even more powerful than Kahlua.

  • A-Cup Angst - After Touhou Fuhai points out how youthful she looks.
  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: The Jigen-Tou aka Dimension Sword.
  • The Ace: Despite her young age she is incredibly powerful, being a master of both hand-to-hand combat and Yojutsu. She mastered the Jigen-Tou on her own, being able to use it both offensively and defensively, and created the barrier to destroy Moka’s seal. Alucard says that in terms of strength, she is above even the Three Demon Lords.
  • Ambiguously Gay: She's heavily implied to be in love with Moka, and seems to have had a similar relationship with Jasmine, her surrogate sister, who's murder at the hands of humans is her Start of Darkness.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: While fighting her sister Kahlua, she was able to figure out the reason behind her Berserker Tears despite seeing them for the first time.
  • Ax-Crazy: Due to being quite a Yandere for Moka. She has a very dark and violent side, and will annihilate anyone who gets in her way or pisses her off. She goes as far as to threaten the lives of Tsukune and his friends when they try to take Moka from her and completely loses her shit when she sees Moka and Tsukune hug.
  • Badass Adorable: Despite her villainy, she has some undeniably cute moments, especially around Moka.
  • Becoming the Mask: She started to care for her sisters far more than she first planned.
  • Berserk Button: Threatening her sisters. Not being the one Moka opens her heart to. Tsukune, she's looking at you for this.
  • Big Damn Villains: Everyone is down and out when Miyabi/Alucard is advancing...and then Aqua leaps in to the fray.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Her specialty.
  • Cute Bruiser: She's stronger than Kahlua.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Aqua grew up in China, at a human settlement with a vampire girl named Jasmine. Though they weren't blood related, they loved each other like sisters. Then the humans cut Jasmine into pieces and impaled her, leading to Aqua's lifelong hatred of humanity.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She really does love her little sister Moka and the rest of her family. She even put her plot to gain ultimate power by killing Moka's mother on hold in a (failed) attempt to avoid hurting Moka's feelings. In fact, when Moka is threatened by Alucard, Aqua's grandfather and the most powerful being in existence...Aqua is the last one standing and more than ready to take him on to save her beloved sister.
  • Fanservice: That dress she wears.
  • Freudian Excuse: Her hatred of humanity and drive for power extends to the brutal murder of the one she loved as a sister in China.
  • Glass Cannon: Despite her incredible speed and combat ability, Aqua has very little durability and one blow from Inner Moka might even snap her neck.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Towards Tsukune and possibly all of Moka's friends.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Makes one when Alucard starts awakening as he'll kill Moka if he does.
  • I Have Your Wife: She escapes the fight with Touhou Fuhai with Moka in tow by pointing out his grandkids are still clinging to life.
  • Immune to Bullets: As Ling-Ling found out thanks to her using the Jigen-Tou to phase out of our dimension.
  • Incest Subtext: Her feelings towards Moka (initially towards Inner Moka, and almost instantly fell for Outer Moka) easily border on romantic.
  • Intangibility: The reason for her being Immune to Bullets.
  • Knight Templar Big Brother: Touch Moka and die. Even if you're her subordinate. Or her Grandfather, the most powerful and evil being on the planet.
  • Lesbian Vampire: Assuming her love for Moka is in fact romantic, which is pretty heavily implied.
  • Little Big Sister: She's Moka's oldest sister but doesn't look it at all. Touhou Fuhai even lampshades this, noting that she doesn't seem to have aged at all in the last decade.
  • Little Miss Badass: Don’t let the fact that she looks like a young girl fool you. She is one of the most powerful characters in the series.
  • Love Redeems: Her love for Moka is what caused her to pull a Heel–Face Turn and attack Alucard.
  • Morality Pet: After cutting Moka's mother in half with her bare hands to get her powerful blood, she then teams up with that same mother, newly regenerated, in order to save her beloved sister Moka from Alucard, though Aqua proved powerless against him.
  • My Greatest Failure: strongly implied to be Jasmine's death. What makes it worse is the humans were after them due to Aqua injuring a boy who got too close to their secret.
  • My Kung-Fu Is Stronger Than Yours: Picked up martial arts training from being raised most of her life in China.
  • My Sister Is Off-Limits!: An unusual female example.
  • Never My Fault: She's convinced that Humans Are Bastards because her best friend/surrogate sister Jasmine was killed by an angry mob after they discovered they were vampires. Of course, said motive falls a tad flat considering the fact that the entire reason said angry mob was formed to begin with was because Aqua, out of paranoia, exposed herself and Jasmine as vampires by injuring a human boy who tried to befriend them.
  • Not So Stoic: Throughout her time at the Huangs, she rarely breaks composure and shows an ice cold front for her men...the second she's behind closed doors, she begins squeeing over how beautiful Moka is, rolling on the bed and then begins happily playing with her pet dog, confessing how utterly terrified she was at the prospect of fighting Touhou Fuhai.
  • Oh, Crap!: The common reaction to her.
    • In return, the look on her face after it became obvious that fucking with Touhou Fuhai was really a bad choice is priceless.
  • One-Hit Kill: Her blows are so strong that they tear through people's bodies like tissue paper. Kahlua is one of the only characters shown to survive them, though she coughed up blood. The other survivors being Akasha and Ling-Ling, who each got sliced in half at the waist. But since Akasha is an ultra-powerful Shinso vampire and Ling-Ling is already dead, that's not enough to take them out.
    • Alucard, or his Combat Tentacles to be more accurate, also survived the attack, and instantly regenerated after being hit with it.
      • Miyabi aka Alucard survived as well, because of his very potent regeneration, which allowed his to reassemble himself from pool of blood.

     Miyabi Fujisaki

Head of Fairy Tale Sub-Division One. The first member of Fairy Tale introduced who threatened to destroy the land of the Yuki-onna if they didn’t give him Mizore as his wife. He is shrouded in mystery and seems to have his own agenda.

  • Affably Evil. Graduates to Faux Affably Evil later.
  • Alucard: Is the intelligent part of the real Alucard that was cloned by him just before death and sealing. He later merges back with the rest of it in order to survive a military strike.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Mizore. And everyone else.
  • Archnemesis Dad: To Akasha. He adopted her after their kingdom was destroyed. Eventually, he seems to have forgotten he ever cared about her, while Akasha holds love towards him still.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: A powerful dangerous force who is always seen in a nice suit. Do not underestimate him.
  • Big Bad: Formed into this with The Reveal that he's both Alucard and the Masked King.
  • The Chessmaster: Hoo yeah! He plays Tsukune and his friends, Touhou Fuhai, Hokuto and Gyokuro like fiddles, manipulating them all so that he could learn if Moka’s Rosary was actually capable of controlling him so he could prevent it or another one from ever being used against him.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: When showcasing his true power, Moka's True Companions and Touhou Fuhai try and fail to even land a scratch on him as he just unflinchingly walks right by them. Even Tsukune is taken out with no effort.
  • Dark Is Evil: Really evil.
  • Despair Event Horizon: He once the famous Dracula himself, and he ruled a kingdom where monsters and humans lived in harmony. However, the rest of the humans wiped out his kingdom, leaving only him and Akasha as survivors. This drove him to take up the name Alucard and become the abomination he was known as.
  • Enemy Mine: Stops Kiria from slicing Kurumu to ribbons and even promises Mizore that he's not going to hurt her. For now. Of course.. this is all an act. Kiria can best be described as his son.
  • Evil All Along: It didn't come as much of a surprise.
  • Face Death with Dignity: As opposed to Gyokuro's hysterical howl of rage, Alucard accepts his defeat rather graciously, and when he is reminded of the noble man he once was, he decides that dying with Akasha and going on a journey with her into the other world won't be so bad.
  • Fallen Hero: Alucard was once a noble vampire king who aspired to create a kingdom for humans and monsters alike. When humanity wiped out his people, Alucard fled with the only survivor Akasha, and eventually became consumed with nothing more than the need to destroy and dominate.
  • Fantastic Racism: He really hates humans. So much he tried to exterminate them all. There's a very good reason for this.
  • A Father to His Men: He apparently cares for his teammates, like when he orders Kahlua to withdraw from battle, realizing that she was about to collapse from her injuries. Later revealed this is literal in regards to Kiria...and he really doesn't give a damn about anyone's safety, he was just manipulating them.
  • Faux Affably Evil: When he removes his mask, figuratively and literally, he is rarely without a polite, gentle smile and is eager to compliment every one of his opponents. Despite this, he is an ice-cold killer who has no compunction or hesitation murdering whoever gets in his way.
  • For the Evulz: At this point, really the only explanation for some of his pettier evil.
  • Freudian Excuse: As explained in Fallen Hero above, he originally wanted to create a country where humans and monsters could coexist. When the humans of neigboring nations responded by invading and killing almost everyone he cared about, he had his Start of Darkness.
  • Go Out with a Smile: Decides he's content to go on a final journey with Akasha into the other world.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal: He has a very strong regeneration, first showed when he took a powerful punch from Tsukune and reappeared without a scratch. And later he reassembled himself after being turned into a pool of blood by Aqua.
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: Pretty danged evil.
  • Genius Bruiser: He was smart enough to wait and examine the Rosary for any potential issue while slowly manipulating things for 200 years.
  • Humanoid Abomination: He is the human-shaped clone of Alucard.
  • Healing Factor: On that makes him virtually immortal. Get hacked apart by Aqua till he was nothing but blood only slowed him down.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Apparently his favorite way of eliminating his enemies.
  • Kick the Dog: Pinning Mizore to the ground, kissing and groping her. When she cries, he basically tells her, "Get over yourself, bitch!"
  • Made of Iron: He shrugs off Tsukune knocking him through a wall, blocks Kahlua's razor sharp bat wing with his forearm and stops Kiria attack with his hand.
  • The Man Behind the Man: Everything is what he organized. He's Alucard, and the true master of the Miao Family and Fairy Tale!
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: So long as his original body, namely Alucard, is intact, he will regenerate from any damage he suffers, even being torn to ribbons by Aqua.
  • Offing the Offspring: His reaction to Aqua getting in his way? She's now outlived her usefulness and must die.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: He mostly hates humans, but certainly won't hesitate to kill monsters as well if they get in his way.
  • Parental Substitute: to Akasha, the only child who survived the destruction of his kingdom.
  • Pet the Dog: He resurrected the mortally wounded Kahlua, saying she was too innocent to die.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: He ended up calling off his troops and retreating from Mizore's homeland when he realized that Kahlua, due to her inability to feel pain, was approaching her limit and would kill herself otherwise.
  • Sadistic Choice: Ordered the Yuki-Onna village to give him Mizore as his wife/sex slave, or else he would have Fairy Tale level the village.
  • Start of Darkness: Having the kingdom he'd founded in the hopes of creating a land where humans and monsters can coexist destroyed by humans.
  • Truly Single Parent: Well, while he fathered a daughter at some point normally, he is this to Kiria.
  • Unflinching Walk: When striding towards Moka to destroy her seal, he shows no signs of even slowing his step when the entire cast is attacking him with everything they have.
  • Walking Spoiler: Considering that he is the true Big Bad and responsible for most of the problems in the series it’s no wonder most of his entries are blanked out.
  • Wife Husbandry: What he planned to do to Mizore.
  • Zero-Approval Gambit: According to the epilogue, he set up Fairy Tale and went on a rampage purely for the sake of giving "monsters" and humans a common enemy to fight, thus destroying the Masquerade and forcing the two groups to peacefully coexist. Of course, the undying resentment of several high-ranking members of Fairy Tale are making this take quite a bit longer than he intended.

     Gyokuro Shuzen

The commander-in-chief of Fairy Tale, and the biological mother of Kahlua and Kokoa. Her plan is to revive Alucard and destroy the human world. She really hates Akasha, including her daughter Moka, and she tries to surpass her.

  • Abusive Parents: She's an all-around bitch to all of her kids, step or otherwise. She's had nothing but contempt for Moka since the day she was born, raised the sweet, gentle Kahlua into a berserker assassin, implies at one point that she'll kill Aqua when Aqua has worn out her usefulness, and hates her youngest daughter, Kokoa, to the extent that she took out a hit out on Kokoa's life and forced Kahlua to try to kill her.
  • Action Mom: Albeit a more villainous example than usual.
  • Always Second Best: Gyokuro never got over the fact that Akasha was better than her at just about everything.
  • Asshole Victim: After all she did, it's hard to feel any sympathy for Gyokuro as she's devoured by Alucard.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: She is the commander-in-chief of Fairy Tale and easily its most powerful member. Well, except for Miyabi/Alucard.
  • Ax-Crazy: While she usually hides it, this line should tell you just how psychopathic Gyokuro really is:
    Gyokuro: "Kill the Humans, slice their meat, cut their bones, and use their blood and guts to hold the most extravagant party. Come now! And we will engrave into their corpses, our everlasting fantasy world!"
  • Bad Boss: Is perfectly willing to let her minions die in droves as long as she gets her way. On top of that, she openly threatens to kill Aqua when she feels that Aqua has worn out her usefulness.
  • Big Bad: The head of Fairy Tale. However, it turns out that she's not the real head of Fairy Tale but the Masked King's servant.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: At one point, she believes that she successfully shot the Huang family's airship out of the sky... without bothering to confirm that the vehicle actually crashed.
  • Break the Haughty: She engages in a downright violent and brutal fight with Tsukune... during which she realizes her dismissal of him was a mistake...
    • She gets hit even harder when Touhou Fuhai reveals that the rosary—which Gyokuro thought was connected solely to Alucard—was, in fact, connected to Akasha within him. When she realizes that this means that it could never allow her her revenge on Akasha by killing Moka, Gyokuro doesn't take it well.
  • Broken Ace: She's smart, beautiful and powerful, married to a very powerful and handsome Vampire Monarch, and she gave birth to two beautiful and powerful vampire girls. This is still not enough to curb her obsessive jealousy and hatred of Akasha. And it eventually in leads to her downfall.
  • Dark Action Girl: As the head of Fairy Tale, this is unavoidable.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Something Kahlua inherited from her although strangely Kokoa inherited neither of these traits.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: After she gets eaten by Alucard, things start looking well again, then Miyabi reveals himself to be not only a Masked King but Alucard himself, and quickly establishes himself as new Big Bad.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Everything she's done has been because her husband Issa liked his mistress, Akasha, more than her.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Becomes this when she merges with Alucard in chapter 61.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Seemingly averted and subverted at the same time. In her final moments, Kahlua informs a grieving Kokoa despite their mother ordering her to kill the latter even after the former begged her not make her do so with possibly the most sadistic grin in manga history on her face, she still loved both of them deep down from the bottom of her darkened heart.
  • Evil Gloating: Loves engaging in this.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: Discovers this the hard way when she tries to control Alucard and is subsequently devoured.
  • Evil Is Petty: She actually rivals Ren Sohma in this regard. She helped set up Fairy Tale and embarked on a mission to Kill All Humans all because she was jealous that Issa paid more attention to Akasha than he did to her, and is perfectly willing to sacrifice her own daughters along the way. On top of it all, her reasons for wanting to exterminate humanity are not out of any real Fantastic Racism, but simply to spite Akasha's dream of human/monster coexistence.
  • Evil Matriarch: Oh, yes. She even treats her own biological daughters like trash, who expect her to treat her stepdaughter and adoptive daughter even worse.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: on her palms after she removes her limiter.
  • Eye Scream: The last we see of her before the jaws of one of Alucard's tentacles devour her are those tusk-like teeth digging into her face... including under one of her lower eyelids.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Talks about plans for mass genocide with a big smile on her face, and compliments Tsukune's strength after trying to kill him.
  • Fantastic Racism: Wants to wipe out humanity, and looks down on them as a supposedly inferior race. Her reason for wanting to Kill All Humans is actually just to spit on Akasha's dream of humans and youkai coexisting, with little personal hatred of the species.
    • It isn't just humans, baring Shinso vampires, she views all life as inferior.
  • Foe-Tossing Charge: Poor Tsukune when she sends him flying, critically injured, with one blow. . Though she did take him by surprise.
  • Foil: To Akasha. Akasha is kind and selfless. Gyokuro is malicious, selfish, and will sacrifice even her own children over a petty grudge.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: In chapter 61 of Season II, it's revealed at least part of the reason for her desires for world conquest are to spite Akasha.
  • Hate Sink: She is one of the heads of the anti-human terrorist organization Fairy Tale, and is the vilest one. Holding a grudge against Akasha Bloodriver for stealing her husband Issa's attention away from her, Gyokuro seeks to start a war between humans and monsters solely for the sake of spiting Akasha's dream of co-existence between monsters and humankind. Along the way, she conditions her eldest daughter Kahlua into a mindless killing machine, attempts to have her youngest daughter Kokoa killed by her own sister, and takes every opportunity to physically and psychologically torment Akasha's daughter Moka. Finally, she fuses with Alucard and attempts to destroy the whole world. Lacking the sympathetic backstories of Hokuto and The Masked King, Gyokuro is a monster both literally and figuratively.
  • Healing Factor: Getting sliced by Aqua's Jigen-Tou through the shoulder barely phased and she healed from it almost instantly.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Merged herself with Alucard to gain the ultimate power. However, when she finally tried to kill Moka, it turns out that the rosary is also tied to the lingering love and protective instincts of Akasha, Moka's mother. And Gyokuro just tried to kill her daughter...
  • Hypocrite: She calls Aqua a disgrace to vampires for bringing emotions in battle. Gyokuro herself is ruled by her emotions, with literally every atrocity she commits being motivated by her Irrational Hatred for Akasha.
  • Irrational Hatred: She despises Akasha so much for being Issa's favorite that she joined an anti-human extremist organization and tried to destroy the world purely to spite her dream of human/monster co-existence.
  • Jerkass: She's uncaring and callous to every living thing aside from herself, even her own children.
  • Just Desserts: As soon as she loses control of Alucard, the monster eats her alive. It's incredibly hard to feel sorry for Gyokuro after all of the atrocities she committed.
  • Karmic Death: After tormenting Moka and ripping away her rosary to control Alucard, she dies when Moka takes it back, leaving her vulnerable to being consumed by Alucard.
  • Kick the Dog: Ordering Kahlua to kill Kokoa. Kahlua actually begged her to reconsider the hit.
    • Tells Moka about Tsukune's eventual transformation into a ghoul to make her suffer and how she will make him another tool for him and aims to rub salt in the wound after she begs her to save him.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Everything goes to hell once she shows up.
  • Lack of Empathy: She does not give a damn about anyone but herself; everyone around her, including her own children, she at best considers them pawns to be manipulated, and at worst obstacles in her path to be disposed of. Perhaps her best display of this is when she directly ordered Kahlua to kill Kokoa despite Kahlua literally begging her to reconsider, all with a sadistic Slasher Smile on her face.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Immediately after informing Moka of Tsukune's transformation into a ghoul and rubbing it in her face, Tsukune blows his top and beats the mess out of her.
  • Love Makes You Evil: Everything she does is because she's pissed as hell that Issa loved Akasha more than her.
  • Misplaced Retribution: Her motivation for everything she does, up to and including trying to wipe out humanity, is because she's pissed that her husband Issa paid more attention to his mistress, Akasha Bloodriver, than he did to her. While that is already Disproportionate Retribution, she chooses to specifically blame Akasha rather than Issa himself.
  • Moral Myopia: She's hated Moka since the day she was born because her existence was one of the main reasons Issa gave more attention to Akasha than her. When Moka kicks off a good chunk of her face, she is infuriated not simply from the injury but that Moka would have the gall to attack her own stepmother, as if she's been a good enough one to deserve respect from Moka.
  • Mum Looks Like a Sister: She looks barely older than Kahlua, and when the two are side-by-side, one would probably assume they were sisters rather than mother and daughter.
  • Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: Despite all her claims of fighting for monster equality, Gyokuro only cares about herself and what she wants, which is a mix of power for the sake of having it, and everyone, her henchmen, friends, family, and lovers included, are nothing but stepping stones to that goal. Also, everything she does is motivated by her petty jealousy of Akasha Bloodriver, her husband's mistress, because Issa paid more attention to Akasha than her; in fact, her plan to Kill All Humans is solely because Akasha dreamed of human/monster co-existence.
  • Offing the Offspring: Perfectly okay with Kokoa being murdered by Kahlua on her orders. What a loving mother.
    • This actually gets some explanation in chapter 64: One of the reasons Kokoa was born was to try and get Issa to pay attention to Gyokuro and Kahlua. It didn't work as well as she'd hoped (though as far as we know, Issa does love his daughter). Her flippancy towards Kokoa's life could be because of some resentment of this fact.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Chapter 58 makes it clear: enemies, henchmen, friends, family, lovers, doesn't matter. They are all stepping stones to what she wants.
  • Parental Favoritism: Kahlua is the only one of her children that she treats with any respect; she distrusts Aqua simply because Aqua is adopted, and hates both Moka and Kokoa, the latter her other biological daughter, to the extent that she tried to murder them.
  • Power Limiter: If we assume the Creepy Cool Crosses she wears are like Kahlua's, she wears one in her hair, and many more around her neck. If that's the case, it's absurd to imagine just how much power she's holding back!
    • Chapter 60 of the 2nd season confirms that only the one in her hair is a limiter. The ones round her neck are just for decoration, and get blown away when she takes an attack.
  • Power Copying: Her true ability, once her seal is removed, is the power to use the attacks of all the Fairy Tale subdivision leaders and that she only has to see an attack once to learn it.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: A mix of Types C and D. She's a powerful and beautiful vampire and the one-time matriarch of the Shuzen family... who's entire Evil Plan is nothing but her throwing a temper tantrum because she was insanely jealous of the fact that her husband Issa loved his mistress Akasha Bloodriver more than her. Literally everything Gyokuro does throughout the series (joining Fairy Tale, trying to Kill All Humans is her way of spiting the long-dead Akasha.
  • Sadist: She really enjoys watching those who interfere with her plans suffer. For starters, she rubs in Moka's face about Tsukune's eventual transformation into a ghoul just to make her suffer and how she will make him another tool, all while Moka begs her to save him. After stealing Moka's rosary and using it to control Alucard, Gyokuro gleefully attempts to kill Moka, imagining that Akasha would be begging her on her knees to stop and taking great delight in the thought.
    Gyokuro: Hehe... I bet Akasha would be screaming... If she knew her own creation would cause the death of her daughter. I can just imagine her down on her knees weeping and begging me to stop...
  • Say My Name: Screams out Moka's just before being devoured by Alucard.
  • Sensor Character: Said to be the very best, she can detect every presence in the Fairy Tale base and discern abstract things like distaste.
  • Smug Snake: While quite powerful and a legitimate threat, her arrogance is a big drawback. She grossly underestimates Tsukune, and loses to him as a result.
  • Slasher Smile: Sports one when ripping away Moka's rosario.
  • Shooting Superman: Tries using the Jigen-Tou against Tsukune, which if she was paying as much attention through the powers she bragged so much about, she would have known he had a way of easily blocking.
  • The Sociopath: Incapable of caring about others. Children by blood or adoption, lovers, subordinates...all of them are nothing but stepping stones to her and her quest for power and dominance.
  • Super Strength: Demonstrated when her first action after discovering Tsukune and the others had infiltrated the Floating Garden is to effortlessly rip out a stone column more than twice her size and throw it at them with one arm.
  • Undignified Death: When she loses control of Alucard, her last moments before being devoured are spent flipping out and screaming in rage at Moka.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Dismissing Tsukune as a major threat bites her in the ass big time during their fight.
  • The Unfettered: As long as she can get what she wants, she'll gladly throw her own daughters to the wolves.
  • Unknown Rival: Gyokuro's hatred and jealousy of Akasha was her entire life. Akasha doesn't seem to think about her much at all.
  • Unwitting Pawn: To the Masked King/Alucard.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Hits big-time during Tsukune and Moka's battle with her. And most of all before her much-deserved Karmic Death.
  • Villains Want Mercy: Upon discovering that she was wrong about Moka's rosary being linked to Alucard, she begs Moka not to take the rosary back, as it's the only thing keeping Alucard from eating her. Moka does so, spitefully telling Gyokuro to beg Akasha for mercy if she wants it.
  • Wicked Stepmother: Moka's.
  • The Woman Behind the Man: Gyokuro wasn't introduced until more than a dozen chapters after Aqua, who was strong enough to take down the entire Huang Family minus one man, and that man was Touhou-freakin'-Fuhai. To summarize, Aqua is an established badass, and Gyokuro is the one she answers to!
    • And as it turns out, she answers to the Masked King.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Implies she will do this to Aqua, claiming that the only daughters she can rely on are those bonded by blood. However, the contract she put out on Kokoa only goes to show that not even blood relatives are safe. Fittingly, she ends up on the end of this from the Masked King, who doesn't bother to save her when the Rosary is removed and Alucard devours her.

     The Masked King

The true ruler of the Miao Family and founder of Fairy Tale. He killed Xia-Long’s father for agreeing to a truce with a Huang family.

  • All According to Plan: As he appears on Floating Garden in chapter 64, he claims that everything that happened so far, was all according to plan. And by golly, it WAS.
  • All-Encompassing Mantle: His body is entirely covered in a black robe although in his first appearance it is shown that underneath it is a mass of tentacles.
  • Bad Boss: Brutalizes his subordinates and planned to kill Xia-Long whether he was loyal to the cause or not. He later lets Gyokuro bite it when he was perfectly capable of rescuing her.
  • Body Horror: You DO NOT want to know what's under that cloak.
  • Diabolus ex Machina: In chapter 64.
  • Eldritch Abomination: His body is just a whole bunch of tentacles connected to his mask. This is even more true considering he is actually Alucard.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Touhou Fuhai.
  • Extra Eyes: His mask has five eyes. Subverted in his true form as Alucard, where he only has two.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: The real leader of Fairy Tale but he's rarely seen and Gyokuro and her subordinates are the ones who drive the plot and face the protagonists.
  • The Man Behind the Man: He is the founder of both the Miao family and Fairy Tale, being above even Gyokuro.

     Ludie Miao

Deputy leader of Fairy Tale Sub-Division Four, serving under Xia-Long. She is a Yasha with severe sadistic tendencies, liking to bully weak people with brutal violence.

  • Cute and Psycho: Has the appearance of a cute and innocent girl, but she'll tear into an opponent with glee.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Is barefoot, likely to make her appear more innocent.

     Xia-Long Miao

Head of the Miao Family and the head of Fairy Tale Sub-Division Four. He used to be close friends with Fang-Fang. Like Fang-Fang he is a Yasha, however, unlike Fang-Fang he is a master of the summoning technique.

  • Anti-Villain: Is fighting because he doesn't want to end up like his father.
  • Graceful Loser: Accepts his defeat at Fang Fang's hands by smiling and complimenting his abilities and his partner.
  • Green Thumb: Loves using plants to fight.
  • The Gunslinger: Also big on using guns with his plants.
  • I Let You Win: Fang Fang noted he was not fighting to full ability.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a snazzy top hat.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Isn't interested in Fairy Tale's goals, he's just involved because the Masked King forced him.
  • Rival Turned Evil: Fang Fang's. Or not. He joined because the Masked King showed him that when his father made a cease-fire with the Huang family, he had his body twisted around till it would fit nicely in a large brief case, which had to break several of his bones and joints.
  • Shout-Out: Has a summon called "Guns and Roses."
  • Storm of Blades: One of his summons, Thousand Bladed Funeral Flower, creates a plant that launches dozens of blades at his enemies.
  • Summon Magic: A master of it.
  • The Triads and the Tongs: He is the head of the Miao family although in truth he is mainly a puppet of the Masked King.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Gairen, the Sixth subdivision commander pulls this on him. He survived until the grand finale.


Head of Fairy Tale Sub-Division Five. A Raiju with control over lightning, he is the first Sub-Division leader to face Tsukune and his friends after they infiltrate the Floating Garden.

  • Lightning Bruiser: Literally! Being able to move at the speed of lightning he is probably faster than Gin and his lighting attacks hit hard.
  • Logical Weakness: He has two which are exploited by Ruby. The first is that when he turns himself into lightning to move at high speeds he moves faster than he can process so he can’t change directions while in that form. Therefore, the location he teleports to is fixed from the moment he transforms, which allows Ruby to predict where he will appear and attack him as soon as his body reforms. The second is that he can only teleport while in places where electricity can easily flow. He can’t use this ability if he is in midair since air is an insulator. Ruby tricks him into teleporting into the air so he can’t escape from her.
  • Panthera Awesome: His true form, a Raiju.
  • Shock and Awe: As a Raiju he has power over lightning able to shock people with a touch or fire it as an energy ball.
  • Super Speed: He is able to turn his body into electricity and travel as fast as lightning, making him so fast he may as well be teleporting.
  • This Cannot Be!: As he falls down after he's impaled by Ruby's attacks, he's says that it's impossible that someone like him is defeated by a "little girl".

     Gairen Yuki

Head of Fairy Tale Sub-Division Six. He appears after Fang-Fang and Yukari defeat Xia-Long and Ludie, collapsing the ceiling on them in an attempt to kill them. Very little is known about him.

     Kanade Kamiya

Head of Fairy Tale Sub-Division Seven. He is a Siren who enjoys killing humans. He wants to make San join Fairy Tale.

  • Alliterative Name: Kanade Kamiya.
  • Ax-Crazy: He, by his own admission, kills humans simply to clear his head, and even states his Goal in Life is to create a mountain of human corpses.
  • Bishōnen: His human form.
  • Brown Note: As a Siren, his Melody of Death can paralyze and blind monsters and flat out kill humans.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: When Marin confronts him over killing her husband, Kanade nonchalantly admits that he killed a lot of people back then simply to take his mind off of things, and can't be bothered to remember all of his victims.
  • Dirty Coward: He's an arrogant SOB, kills humans purely to pass the time and clear his head, and has a bad case of A God Am I... but when San's song takes its toll and he starts crumbling to dust, he freaks out and begs for mercy.
  • Fantastic Racism: Of humans.
  • For the Evulz: He flat-out admits that he kills humans simply to pass the time and clear his head, even envisioning himself Atop a Mountain of Corpses.
  • A God Am I: He outright calls himself God. While he definitely won the Superpower Lottery as a siren, his delusions of godhood come to a crashing halt when he's killed by San Otonashi, an even more powerful siren who's song literally turns him to dust.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: He is a siren.
  • One-Winged Angel: After Tsukune manages to hit him he transforms into a large monstrous form which lets him use his most powerful attack, Symphony for the Devil.
  • Razor Wings: In his true form he can use Steel Feather Cutter to turn his feather into razor-sharp projectiles.
  • Summon Magic: Using a magical harp he can use the Water Mirror technique, which lets him summon any of the subordinates from his branch to his location.
  • Villains Want Mercy: As he dies, he begs for someone to save him, however no one does.
  • We Can Rule Together: Says this to San.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: After San defeats him she said Kanade was still alive and offered Marin the chance to kill him for revenge. After she decides not to, Kanade is never seen again.
  • Winged Humanoid: His monster form as a Siren is just a norml human with wings growing from his back. However, he has a second transformation that is much more drastic.

     Tsubaki Rokurou 

An agent in Sub-Division Seven. He is a scout whose job is to find powerful monsters to recruit into Fairy Tale.

  • Brown Note: He has Kamiya song on recorder. It's strong enough to cause enormous pain to humans, and was able to stun Gin.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Get's easily defeated by Gin once latter get's serious.
