    The Virtues in General 

Seven angels from Heaven that stand in opposition to the Mortal Sins. To counter the influence Demon Lords have on humans, they go to Earth to try to guide humans into a path of virtue as per God's will, including searching for candidates to be the Messiah.


  • Angelic Beauty: All of them.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: The Seven Virtues are allegedly the strongest in Heaven, embodying the best in mankind. In reality, the majority are incompetent and struggle to uphold their titular Virtues.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Their names are traditionally considered masculine.
  • Gender Flip: The angels they are named after are often stated to be genderless, but they are usually portrayed as males, at least in appearance. Those angels here are undoubtedly female.
  • Hero with an F in Good: God knows they try, but most of their plans to train their Messiah Candidates end up doing more harm than good for them.
  • Irony: None of the angels live up to their designated virtues: Uriel (Patience) has a short temper according to her own profile and doesn’t have the patience to pause and reconsider her actions due to how stubbornly she sticks to them, even if they inconvenience her or others; Raphael (Temperance) struggles with a sweet tooth and obsesses over dieting; Sandalphon (Diligence) takes long naps and breaks; Metatron (Charity) is prone to forcing her care on people and has a Split Personality that actually enjoys seeing people in pain; Sariel (Kindness) spoils others and is over-indulgent and Gabriel (Chastity), as pointed below, wears a very skimpy outfit. Even Michael, who is normally the only one to properly represent her virtue, is a victim to this when it is shown that she has a moment in losing faith in humanity even thinking of destroying it despite being the angel of faith.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: For a group of Heavenly servants, they are not nearly as serious or capable as one would expect.
  • Stripperific: Just as bad as their demonic counterparts. Michael has an outfit that cover a decent amount of skin, but the others… don’t.
  • Winged Humanoid: Similar to the horns of the demons, angels have wings to represent their angel-hood, albeit on different parts of their bodies. For example, Raphael has hers on her hips while Metatron has her wings on her boots.

    Michael 

Michael

Voiced by: Yumi Uchiyama (Japanese), Kucky Long (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d3a4c854564e9258fcaccd409782d158cdbf4e0f.jpg
The first angel introduced. She is an Archangel and the leader of the Seven Heavenly Virtues, representing Faith.

To see her tropes in Seven Mortal Sins, go here.


  • Adorkable: One normally wouldn’t think that the word “adorable” could be associated with someone as straight-laced as Michael, but turns out that when her favorite dish is in front of her, her personality does a 180.
  • Archangel Michael: As a sexy woman.
  • Character Rerailment: She got hit hard with Adaptational Villainy in Seven Mortal Sins, being portrayed as willing to lie and kill to do her job and having an unhealthy obsession with Lucifer. All of these traits are noticeably absent in this anime, who portrays her more closely to how she was described in official material for the figure line.
  • Commissar Cap: She sports one, as part of her military style.
  • Dangerously Short Skirt: It barely qualifies as one.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Played for Laughs, but she is very strict when it comes to training. She puts her candidate through a truly Spartan training regime (her candidate being a perfectly average guy, mind you) and later does the same to the other Virtues. By the end Michael is the only one still standing.
  • Good Is Not Nice: When the time came to find a candidate to be the Messiah, she picks the first human she comes across and begins training him like a soldier.
  • The Leader: Of the Seven Heavenly Virtues obviously.
  • Multicolored Hair: The tips of her hair become red.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Egg-based dishes in general, particularly omelet.
  • Training from Hell:
    • She immediately subjects her chosen Candidate to harsh physical training, intending for him to fight Lucifer himself.
    • She gives one to the other Virtues in episode 9, both so they can better themselves and make an incentive video for their candidates.
  • Undying Loyalty: As the representative of Faith, she is utterly loyal to God.
  • Vapor Wear: She doesn’t wear a bra, as she unintentionally shows to a messiahs candidate.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A, with a Dangerously Short Skirt, thigh high boots, and stockings.

    Uriel 

Uriel

Voiced by: Asami Seto (Japanese), Kira Vincent-Davis (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_ozwjgds5vh1uu7duto6_r1_400.jpg

An Archangel, and one of the Seven Heavenly Virtues. She represents Patience, and serves as an intelligence operative for Heaven. In spite of her Virtue, she is said to have a serious personality and a short temper.


  • Archangel Uriel: As a sexy woman.
  • Bunny Girl: She has a pair of wings on her head, which resemble bunny ears. Bonus art even dresses her up as a Playboy Bunny.
  • Ceiling Cling: At one point, her "stealth" involves very visibly hanging from the ceiling.
  • Cleavage Window: Sports a very un-angelic cut-out, showing off generous cleavage.
  • The Comically Serious: Keeps a straight face while following her Messiah candidate around, even when her attempts at being stealth become more obvious and desperate. As much as she tries though, the “straight face” doesn’t last long.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Her arms. She wears armor in her left one and a fisher net on her right one. She also has a wing coming out of her right wrist but nothing of the short in her left.
  • Forgot About Her Powers: Her focus episode deals with her antics as a Highly Visible Ninja, but the very next episode reveals that angels can become invisible to humans if they will it (which was already stated in the previous anime). Either she wanted to pointlessly challenge herself or she flat-out forgot about her own powers.
  • Highly Visible Ninja: She thinks she's incredibly stealthy, but in reality everyone can see her and she repeatedly disrupts her Candidate's life.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Her actions cause her Candidate to get fired from his job.
  • Not So Stoic: As the Virtue of Patience she tries to act like The Stoic, but she can’t keep it for long. Be it because she actually has an emotional nature, because of her bad temper or simply because nature is calling her.
  • Playing with Fire: She can manipulate fire, just like her counterpart in the Mortal Sins. Since there isn't any fighting in this anime, this information is relegated to All There in the Manual.
  • Potty Emergency: Has one throughout her episode but refuses to go, until her candidate tells her where it is.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair is so long it reaches her hips.
  • Sexy Backless Outfit: Her entire back and butt are uncovered.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Played for Laughs. She stalks her Candidate everywhere he goes, and declares she's fallen for him. Her antics become less and less subtle, until he finally ends up losing his job.
  • Stocking Filler: She wears thigh-high stockings, with a fishnet back.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Or rose-pink, at any rate.

     Raphael 

Raphael

Voiced by: Lynn (Japanese), Courtney Lamelo (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/0b8ea6de9c82d158fd1a121f8b0a19d8bd3e420f.jpg

An Archangel and one of the Seven Heavenly Virtues, representing Temperance. She is obsessed with human fashion trends, particularly the "Gal" subculture.


  • Archangel Raphael: As a sexy woman.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her shirt leaves her stomach exposed, and her skirt is slung as low as possible.
  • Big Eater: For the Angel of Temperance, she sure likes to "do research" on desserts.
  • Boyfriend Bluff: Gender inverted. She allows her candidate to tell his friends she is his girlfriend to help with his social life.
  • Genki Girl: Very energetic and loud.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She wears her hair in short pigtails.
  • Gyaru Girl: She imitates the human trend, dressing and acting like one.
  • Hair Decorations: She wears several decorative hair clips.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: She decides against recruiting her Candidate, recognizing that becoming the Messiah would prevent him from following his dream of becoming a master pastry chef.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: After deciding not to recruit her Candidate, Raphael removes all memories of her interactions on Earth.
  • Nice Girl: She may have too much energy for some people to handle, but nonetheless she is friendly and considerate. Notable, unlike Michael and Uriel, who more or less forced their view of how a Messiah should be on their candidates, Raphael didn’t even try training a candidate she found, because she knew he would be happier living as a human and following his dream.
  • Only Sane Man: She does have her quirks, but even then she is still the most socially adept of the Virtues and the one who understands humans the best. While the other Virtues often fail to help their Messiah candidates and ultimately make things worse for them, Raphael quickly understood the problems her candidate was facing and how to solve them. Hers was the only candidate to unambiguously end the episode better than he started.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: Episode 3 portrays her as a Shameless Fanservice Girl. After spilling ice cream all over her body, she lets her candidate get a good look at her naked skin when she asks him to wipe it for her. This is very weird for her, as episode 11 and one Short Story in the official site show that she does feel shame when people see her exposed body. Even if we assume that her behavior changes when she is around people she likes, the aforementioned scene happened in public, where plenty of strangers could see her.
  • Sailor Fuku: She wears a very small school uniform.
  • Sweet Tooth: She loves anything sweet, and tries to get around it with low-calorie or low-fat options.
  • Underboobs: Her shirt constantly rides up, just barely keeping her assets under cover.
  • Vapor Wear: She isn't wearing a bra, and her thong barely covers anything.

    Sandalphon 

Sandalphon

Voiced by: Shiori Izawa (Japanese), Rachael Messer (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8cc98758d109b3deb327afc6c7bf6c81810a4c0f.jpg

An angel and one of the Seven Heavenly Virtues, representing Diligence. She is an inventor, and always worries for her sister, Metatron.


  • A-Cup Angst: She is implied to have this in episode 10.
  • Bungling Inventor: She's a talented engineer, but her inventions tend to go array in the long run.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Except she has blue hair. Zigzagged. In the official art, she has the same pinkish color of skintone as all the other Virtues, but in the anime itself, she is noticeably darker in skin color than the other Girls, both all of the angels, and even most of the demons. She is arguably as dark as Satan (who likewise was Tanned in the anime but not in in the official art). Only her BFF —- and counterpart Sin —— Belphegor is darker in skin color than her.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: The armor she wears in her left arm is much bigger than the one in the right, and she only has one wing on her head, on the right side.
  • Friendly Enemy: She and Belphegor, the Demon Lord that embodies the Sin opposite to Sandalphon's Virtue, are in such friendly terms that she is willing to ask her for hints on how to help her Messiah Candidate.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: She repeatedly berates her Candidate for not focusing on his studies, not seeming to realize that she is the reason he can't focus. She wears nothing but an apron while cooking, and flashes her Thong of Shielding and Side Boob at him to the point it's a miracle he could even study at all.
  • Naked Apron: Dons one while cooking for her Messiah Candidate. She is totally oblivious to how it does not help him concentrate on his studies.
  • Odd Friendship: She and Belphegor are pen pals, despite being the representatives of the Virtue of Diligence and the Sin of Sloth, which are opposites.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Sandalphon is hard-working and serious, in comparison to the easy-going and ditzy Metatron.
  • Purple Eyes: She has purple eyes, and is an Archangel.
  • Sexy Backless Outfit: Not to Uriel's degree, but most of her back and butt are uncovered.
  • Thong of Shielding: She wears a thong with her armor, which makes her candidate very uncomfortable.
  • Token Mini-Moe: The most youthful in appearance among the Virtues.
  • Wrench Wench: A mechanic and engineer, as well as a cute girl.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Which she does.

    Metatron 

Metatron

Voiced by: Ari Ozawa (Japanese), Brittney Karbowski (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/48dfc409b3de9c82e1fdb2216781800a18d8430f.jpg

An angel and one of the Seven Heavenly Virtues, representing Charity. She is the sister of Sandalphon, and often worries her sister with her careless personality.


  • Apologizes a Lot: Since she is very ditzy but also very gentle, she starts apologizing whenever she does something wrong in her job, which happens often.
  • Bare Your Midriff: This angel here isn’t afraid to expose her stomach.
  • Cleavage Window: In a heart-shape, to boot.
  • Curtains Match The Windows: Her eyes match her hair, blue on the top and pink on the bottom.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: She's very accident-prone, tripping and spilling hot soup on her Candidate.
  • The Ditz: She is clumsy and a bit foolish.
  • Hospital Hottie: Her outfit is essentially a super-sexy Nurse outfit.
  • Induced Hypochondria: Prone to deciding people need treatment, even when they're actually fine.
  • The Ingenue: A very gentle girl, but also a foolish person who doesn’t know much about the human world and often gets tricked because she naively trusts anyone.
  • Mega Twin Tails: She wears her hair in enormous pigtails.
  • Multicolored Hair: Ombre, with blue at the crown and pink midway down the pigtails.
  • Nice Girl: Her position as the Virtue of Charity isn’t just for show; this girl doesn’t have a single mean bone in her body. In her default personality, that is. The other one is a different story.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Metatron is ditzy and careless, often worrying the more serious Sandalphon.
  • Psycho Serum: She carries a magical serum that supposedly cures any ill, but also has the side-effect of temporarily transforming her into a sadist.
  • Sadist: Her Split Personality is one, taking pleasure in applying the most painful treatments possible.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: An interesting case where the lack of shame comes from naivety (and Skewed Priorities). Because she is full of goodwill and assumes the best of everyone, it's very easy for men to trick her into doing sexual things for them, which she will happily do if she believes it will help them. She contrasts with some of the other Virtues (including her sister) who flash their candidates by accident. Her Split Personality is a more conventional example.
  • Split Personality: Normally a sweet and gentle girl who only wants to help others, but when she is holding a syringe, she suddenly changes into a sadist keen on "helping" people through the most painful treatment possible.
  • Super Gullible: Very much so. Being the Virtue of Charity she is willing to do favors for anyone who asks, and thus it’s very easy for humans to deceive her.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She does have it, but that is not the only weird color in her hair.

    Gabriel 

Gabriel

Voiced by: Hiyori Nitta (Japanese), Maggie Flecknoe (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/69598982d158ccbf5e24fe9412d8bc3eb035410f.jpg

An Archangel and one of the Seven Heavenly Virtues, representing Chastity. She is self-important and likes to boss others around.


  • Archangel Gabriel: As a sexy but rather young-looking woman.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her entire torso is exposed, from sternum to juuuust above her crotch.
  • Catchphrase: "This is wrong!"
  • Doublethink: “Lust is an evil feeling that must be purged from the soul!” “You must wear your uniform, even if it’s incredibly skimpy, because that is part of your job!” Yes, according to her official profile the reason why she is wearing such a Stripperific outfit is because she honestly believes both of those statements.
  • Dumb Blonde: Has blond hair, and isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer. Although her problem isn’t lack of intelligence as much as it is lack of common sense, leading to some amazing Doublethink.
  • Going Commando: Her already small shorts have a noticable hole on the backside held together by a heart-shaped metal ring, revealing she goes without panties.
  • Hypocritical Humor:
    • Chides her Messiah candidate for speaking loudly at night because it will bother the neighbors, after she announced her arrival by knocking very strongly at his door.
    • Represents chastity and berates other people for engaging in evil lustful behaviour, yet wears a tiny outfit while obviously lacking underwear.
  • Manchild: She's incredibly child-like, both in terms of her simple-minded view of things and her over-enthusiastic enjoyment of amusement parks. Her Candidate even wonders how old she actually is, based on her immature behavior.
  • Moral Guardians: She considers herself to be this for Heaven.
  • Petite Pride: In her own words, "being jealous of big breasts is pathetic!"
  • Sex Is Evil: She's introduced berating couples walking down the street for engaging in "unwholesome" behavior.
  • Sour Prude: As the Virtue of Chastity, Gabriel abhors perversion and is always cracking down on humans and angels whom she thinks have transgressed.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Along with her fellow Archangel Sandalphon, she looks like a very young teenage girl.
  • Underboobs: Her top shows off the bottom of her breasts, and flows open at the slightest breeze.
  • Vapor Wear: One quick look at her impossibly skimpy outfit is enough to see that she doesn't wear a bra. When looking at her from the backside, one realizes she doesn't wear panties, either.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: She wears what could barely qualify as shorts, unbuttoned.

    Sariel 

Sariel

Voiced by: Sakura Nakamura (Japanese), Avery Smithhart (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nanatsu_no_bitoku_03.jpg

An angel and one of the Seven Heavenly Virtues, representing Kindness. The eldest of the Angels, she is said to be prone to over-indulging others.


  • All Women Are Doms, All Men Are Subs: Her version of "training" involves hitting her Candidate in the face with her assets, while he thanks her for scolding him.
  • Ass Kicks You: Uses her "marshmallow bottom" to smack her Candidate repeatedly in the face.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Pretty much her entire lower torso is exposed.
  • Catchphrase: "Fabulous!"
  • Covert Pervert: She definitely enjoys people getting caught in her Marshmallow Hell a lot more than is proper for an Angel. In spite of this, only Gabriel seems to notice.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: In the sense that taking the Virtue of Kindness to some truly unhealthy lengths is the core of most of her problems. Being too kind to other means she ends up spoiling them rather than helping them grow; she cannot get angry even with people who deserve it; and she is perfectly willing to let humans touch her inappropriately if that makes them happy.
  • Gag Boobs: Has the largest breasts of the seven angels.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She represents the virtue of Kindness, and has golden blonde hair.
  • Marshmallow Hell: She repeatedly smothers her Candidate with her massive breasts. (Not that he's complaining.)
  • Mismatched Eyes: One gold, and one blue.
  • Nice Girl: As expected of the Virtue of Kindness, Sariel is polite, gentle and generally well-meaning towards everyone.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Has no problems with people ogling and touching her if that makes them happy. It also makes her happy.
  • Sneeze of Doom: She has an "Evil Eye" which causes something bad to happen to the people around her when she sneezes. The first example the anime gives: she makes an entire building explode.
  • Team Mom: The eldest of the Virtues, prone to spoiling others.
  • Underboobs: Her enormous breasts are barely covered by armor over the tops and nipples.

     Messiah Candidates 
Voiced by: Scott Gibbs, Bryson Baugus, David Wald, Courtland Johnson, Mike Haimoto, Greg Cote, Blake Shepard (English)
The humans selected by one of the Virtues, as potential candidates for the role of Messiah.


  • Above the Influence: Impressively restrained and chaste, even when dealing with being flashed by a very clingy and Stripperific Angel. Often repeatedly. Averted by Metatron's and Sariel's candidates, who do fall into temptation. Downplayed by Sandalphon's and Gabriel's candidates, with the former being Distracted by the Sexy and the latter being introduced watching porn, but they still don't do anything lewd to these angels.
  • Audience Surrogate: The generic stand-in for the audience, dragged along by the angel that has selected them.
  • Blinding Bangs: Every single one has bangs covering their eyes, leaving them with a very generic appearance.
  • The Chosen One: The Messiah is supposed to be this, though the Virtues are seemingly allowed to each test their own candidate.
  • The Everyman: As ordinary as possible, and really only demonstrating any personality through their interactions with their Angel recruiter.
  • The Generic Guy: The Candidates are just barely given any personality or defining traits, and have only minimal facial features.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Metatron's and Sariel's candidates averted Above the Influence and tried to take advantage of having a sexy girl taking care of them, and both met a much worse fate than the more well restrained candidates at the end of their episodes.
  • Messianic Archetype: What they are supposed to be, but so far they seem to all be ordinary persons. They are well restrained and generally nice, but that's all.
  • Supreme Chef: Raphael's candidate gains her attention because of his talents as a baker.
  • Unfazed Everyman: They don't seem all that shocked that they are being followed around by Angels. Even if some of them are unaware they are real Angels, one would think their outfits and personalities would deserve a stronger reaction than "what a weird gal".
