Protagonist

     Maruta Makoto 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/makoto02.jpg
Can't say we blame him
  • Achievements in Ignorance: All his development has been discovered by pure accident.
  • Accidental Murder: After Gard attacks him in a public street, right outside the adventurer's guild, Makoto counter-punches in the "right" spot, killing him without intending to. Makoto gets arrested until Gard's guilt is proven by witnesses and hard evidence. At which point, Makoto gets a reward for Gard's bounty.
  • Affectionate Gesture to the Head: He loves to pat on the head, cup the face, or otherwise stroke that area of any girl he's happy with. They all appreciate it.
  • Axe-Crazy: In chapter 20, he very effectively channels Jack Nicholson from "The Shining." Both he and Maruko noticed that such outbursts of violence are occurring at a greater frequency and severity, and it troubles them.
  • Audience Surrogate: As he learns about the world of Manasthesia, so does the audience.
  • The Berserker: When he gets pissed, he gets pissed. While he can still tell friend from foe, he attacks with fast and completely unpredictable strikes that tear his enemies apart.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He is very kind, gentle and tolerant, without a prejudicial bone in his body. If you go out of your way to piss him off, to the point that he has just cause to come after you, You Are Already Dead, your body just hasn't got the memo yet.
  • Black Speech: When he goes into his "Bloodlust" mode, he speaks this way. It rightly terrifies those foolish enough to antagonize him into that state.
  • Chick Magnet: He's handsome, powerful, and treats the ladies with respect in a world that apparently is quite blase about rape. Of course, they're going to like him.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: He likes ogling, fondling and kissing both Maria and Katua, especially watching Maria's breasts bounce on carriage rides, but informed consent is very important to him. He will never intentionally go anywhere with them that they don't want to.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: He just can't turn away from seeing someone suffer, even as a possibility, unless said someone went and earned his grudge first.
  • Combat Clairvoyance: What really makes him dangerous in a fight is that he can see his opponent's moves a few seconds in advance.
  • Did You Actually Believe...?: Although only shown once, when Makoto spares Avel, at the request of Katua, as Avel stupidly promises to return and rape all the women Makoto cares about, Makoto hurls a log right into Avel's rectum while shouting "did you really think I would let you go?!" Then Avel lands in Mireru's lake...
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: When Est calls him a Living Weapon, he doesn't think he's strong enough to qualify until Est spells out that he's basically a living ballista!
  • Do Not Taunt Cthulhu: He goes and calls Astena a "bitchy old hag" (which she is) to her face. She almost kills him for it.
  • Gag Penis: Invoked. His "growth" stat gives him such a large penis that not only is he shocked upon seeing it, but people flying overhead, too far for him to see them, while he's trying to use the bathroom, faint upon seeing it.
  • Genre Savvy: Dangerously so. He is quite familiar with most of the rules of the isekai genre he finds himself stuck with.
  • I Choose to Stay: As early as chapter 7 of the manga. Astena promises him a return home, for the price of betraying Liana, and becoming her follower, even promising him sex with her.
  • Ideal Hero: As long as you're not a follower of Astena, or otherwise antagonizes him, he is the epitome of what a hero should be. And sometimes, even then.
  • Idiot Ball: Invoked and Justified. A side-effect of his rage-based skills is that he unwittingly (and temporarily) trades intelligence for strength while he's under their effects.
  • Improbable Weapon User: He finds himself quite skilled at wielding a log heavier than himself like a polearm. Even he doesn't know why he can do that. It segues into Exotic Weapon Supremacy when he gets trained by an official "woodmaster" to wield logs as a weapon, to the point that he reaches a "SSS" rank. Something even Goddess Linia hasn't seen in thousands of years.
  • It's Personal: He hates Astena and her followers with undying passion. Fitting, since they constantly go out of their way to antagonize, bully, and harass him, and then have the gall to be upset when he retaliates, or so much as dares to object.
  • Karmic Jackpot: Being good to him, or simply being good to others around him usually means nice things will happen to you. Be a dick, and your comeuppance is just a matter of time.
  • Kidnapped by the Call: He is enjoying his Sunday, playing with his younger sister... until he's knocked out, and wakes up in front of Astena, who then abandons him.
  • Magic Eye: As a result of becoming Liana's follower.
  • Not Distracted by the Sexy: There's been at least two situations where he's found himself sharing a space with a completely naked woman that wasn't sexual in nature, and it didn't distract him from what he needed to do in the slightest. Although he once had to remind himself that the "woman" in question was actually an infant clumsily using magic to temporarily sport an adult body.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: He has a lock of hair that hides his Magic Eye, until he uses said eye.
  • Power Perversion Potential: In Chapter 19, as thanks for rescuing her from pirates, and clearing out the pirate base, Princess Flora grants him a Baron title and a small deserted archipelago as territory. How does Makoto decide to use this boon? He takes a vacation with Est and the Raslian sisters, at a nude beach and they all have a fun beach party!
  • Precognition: His eye's most useful ability. The fact that he receives vision of the future has saved him and his several times.
  • Stealing the Credit: Justified and subverted. To protect Mireru from the consequences of accidentally breaking the Prime Directive by accidentally killing the follower of another god, Makoto takes the credit in "delivering the finishing blow." The subversion comes from the fact that the other follower in question shrugs off Mireru's attack and Makoto has to take the bastard down, for real, and single-handed. He's earned the credit.
  • The Strategist: Tactician, to be precise. When he isn't berserk, he is actually quite talented at coordinating troops to achieve tactical goals with minimal risk of friendly casualties.
  • Trapped in Another World: He was brought to Manastesthia by Anesta, and not only did she refuse to send him back when she was unimpressed with his current abilities, but outright abandoned him, and none of the other goddesses he met even have the power to try. Anastea promises to send him back if he'll betray all his allies and Linia, serving her for a time as her follower, even promising him sex to sweeten the deal.
  • The Unchosen One: Astena abandons him because she wasn't pleased with what she saw as his "potential."
  • Unskilled, but Strong: His ability to use a several hundred pound log as a weapon means he has tremendous reach and can do amazing amounts of damage, but his lack of actual skill means he lashes out at random, with a great deal of wasted movement. This transitions into Strong and Skilled when he gets to train under an actual Woodmaster, allowing him to refine his fighting style, to the point that he can overcome Time Master powers, easily.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Invoked. Also ironically combined with Tranquil Fury. As a result of unlocking the "Bloodlust" skill, he goes into a rage where he is literally unstoppable, even shrugging off fatal wounds. Unfortunately, when this state ends, all his pain, injuries and exhaustion strike at once, which could kill him. What's worse is that this skill triggers on its own when he's sufficiently enraged. Despite all the above, he is still in full control of his actions and radiates a murderous aura with icy calm...

Makoto's family

     Maruta Maruko 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maruko_e.jpg
If only you knew what was coming...
Makoto's sister on earth.
  • Adult Fear: One moment, she's watching TV with her older brother and playing, the next he's gone, no idea where he is, no way to reach him, no way to even search or find out if he's okay! What's worse is that Makoto's and Maruko's parents aren't even introduced. Makoto may well have been the only thing keeping her out of an orphanage!
  • Big Brother Worship: She adores her older brother, though she didn't see anything wrong with trolling him regarding his NEET status.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Justified. Her fate after Makoto was whisked away to Manasthesia is not known, and there is no way Makoto, the main character and Audience Surrogate, could find out.

     Raslian Sisters 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/4_65.jpg
Who wouldn't treasure these beauties?
Three of five survivors Makoto encounters in a town ravaged by a Zombie Apocalypse

Common to All:

  • Exotic Weapon Supremacy: As can be seen in the page image, they all wield exotic tools, especially Katua who wields a kunai.
  • Happiness in Slavery: As far as Makoto is concerned, they are slaves In Name Only. They are all grateful.
  • Hero-Worshipper: To Makoto. They are all thrilled at how strong, skilled, handsome, and "cool" he is, repeatedly calling him "my hero" and are ecstatic that he lets them travel with him on his adventures.
  • Karmic Jackpot: They were treated horribly by their master, the "noble" mayor of the town, and laughed at by the citizens. Said mayor and citizens are now dead. Makoto rescues them from the town and the well they were hiding in, and he's gained the Undying Loyalty of a family any man could dream of.
  • Naked First Impression: Makoto (and the audience) encounter them while they are naked in a well.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: On the receiving end. They were stripped naked and forced to wait in a well for the "crime" of accidentally breaking something of value. This saved their lives when a Zombie Apocalypse occurred.
  • Shameful Strip: All three of them were stripped naked and marched through town (in chains in the manga version) to humiliate them before being forced to wait overnight in a well to atone for their "misdeed" in the accidental breaking of a valuable object.
  • Undying Loyalty: They will happily follow Makoto wherever he goes, and whatever he does.

Common to Maria and Katua

  • All Women Are Lustful: Where it concerns the bedroom, they come-on to him. He never refuses.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: They both want affection from Makoto, badly. If one of them sees him getting sexual favor, the other will want it too, if not try to one-up her. The first time it happened, it was such a vicious cycle that Makoto woke the next morning completely sucked dry.
  • Glad-to-Be-Alive Sex: At the first opportunity, Maria offers Makoto (oral) sex as a reward for rescuing them from the Zombie Apocalypse. Then Katua insists on joining in. By the end of it, they went down on him no less than seven times.
  • Reluctant Fanservice Girl: They do not like the idea of public nudity, yet they were encountered naked in a well, and Maria even got some clothing damage in the chest area at one point.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: They want affection from Makoto and only Makoto. The idea of getting any hugging, kissing, etc. from anyone else makes them physically ill.note 

Maria:

Katua:

  • A-Cup Angst: She does not like the fact that her chest is small. Unfortunately, the magic that expanded Maria's chest doesn't work on her as she's already "full-grown."
  • Deadly Gaze: Combined with Playing with Fire. Thanks to godess Laina, she gains the ability to set things on fire by looking at them, whenever she wants.
  • Rapunzel Hair: As illustrated in the manga, her hair reaches the very bottom of her butt.
  • Unusual Euphemism: She's quite fond of calling Makoto's penis his "wooden log." Makoto soon begins doing the same.

Marie:

  • Cool Big Sis: To the two infant children Makoto rescues from Rua, out of the womb of their zombified mother! She loves taking care of the little rascals, and they like her right back.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: She's simply too young to understand why being naked in front of a guy should be considered a bad thing, and doesn't bother trying to cover herself. She only asks for clothing because she's cold and wet, from being in a well and all...
    • In chapter 19 of the manga, she finds the idea of playing at the beach, completely naked, fun, and actually frolics with complete abandon, having a grand old time, not a stitch of clothing.
  • Out of Focus: The fact that she's taking care of two infants while Makoto, Maria, and Katua go adventuring to pay the bills seldom gets on-screen attention.
  • Token Mini-Moe: She's maybe 10 years old, tops.

     The twins, Raa and Ree 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/twins_6.jpg
The miracle children.
Infants rescued from a Zombie Apocalypse because Maria delivered them by C-section out of their zombified mother's womb.
  • Gender Bender: Barring a translation error, Makoto pointedly mentions that both infants are boys, yet when Raa uses "age up" magic, the "adult" form is a very attractive woman.
  • Glass Cannon: Their stats hint at this. While their physical bodies are as frail as infants, their mental stats, useful for magic abilities, are top tier, reading the 30's and 40's where 10 or so is average.
  • Happily Adopted: They know the Raslian sisters are not their mother and Makoto is not their father, but they're quite happy to be in the Maruta home.
  • The Mind Is a Plaything of the Body: They may have their memories of their past life, but their personality is exactly what one would expect of an infant. When Raa's "flight" spell wears off and she lands flat on her butt, she tears up and starts crying exactly like an infant would when falling flat on its butt.
  • Out of Focus: The daily minutia of their care under Marie is seldom showcased on screen.
  • Reincarnation: Deconstructed and played for laughs. They may have the memories of their past life, but they are still infants and have infant's needs.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: While Raa tends to go Shameless Fanservice Girl in playing with her "age up" magic, Ree tends to react with disgust when touched by Makoto, and likes to ogle women. The latter creeps Makoto out so much, he instantly goes to his Magic Eye and carefully analyze the kid to make sure everything's okay.

     Maruko 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/29_2.jpg
I wasn't lonely or anything, BAKA!
A dryad spirit that he hears cry out to him, and he finds just before being called upon by Mireru to deal with Vampire Avel.
  • Anger Born of Worry: When she thinks Makoto has died fighting Avel, she breaks down crying, then when she sees he's okay, just exhausted, gets all pouty and yells at him for a bit before letting him rest.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Where it concerns other logs, as shown in chapter 20. She wants to be Makoto's primary weapon, and was quite upset when she heard he used "some random log" to beat the giant crabs in chapter 19.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: The sacred tree she lived in was chopped down by bandits, to steal its healing leaves. The shrine that was built to protect her had the entire congregation butchered in the process, becoming vengeful ghosts. To top it all off, all that remained of her tree was an abandoned log. Then she was stuck alone with her grief, for years.
  • Hates Being Alone: She's got powerful separation anxiety, and who can blame her. An entire shrine of her friends and family were butchered by bandits, and she's been stuck in the back of the shrine for years, all alone, because the ghosts of the victims would attack anyone who would try and comfort her.
  • Tsundere: Type A. She just can't admit her honest feelings. She's too scared of rejection and abandonment to try.

Supporting Characters

     Jake 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jake_5.jpg
The first adventurer Makoto meets (aside from Aria and Gard), and the one he hangs out with the most.
  • Adorkable: He's strangely endearing precisely because he's a bit goofy and odd.
  • Affectionate Nickname: He's fond of calling Makoto "Boss" purely for the way it sounds. Makoto doesn't mind.
  • Broken Pedestal: Inverted and subverted. The first time the combined parties of Makoto and Jake encounter bandits, he thinks Makoto abandoned him, after Makoto's sword broke, until he sees that Makoto returned with a log to literally swat the bandits aside like flies.
  • Fingore: Upon Avel's introduction, he points out Avel to Makoto because Avel was hurling insults at him and his party. Avel responds by using Time Master powers to shatter the bones in said finger, to the point that recovery would be very difficult....
  • Guest-Star Party Member: His party is quite fond of teaming up with Makoto's because Makoto's presence both increases their odds of survival and finding bonus rewards, like bounties for bandits that the group caravan tends to come across...
  • Hero-Worshipper: He just can't shut up about how "cool" Makoto is. Makoto thinks he's being overestimated a bit.
  • Kick Them While They're Down: He kicks Gard after Makoto's One-Hit Kill, in the process of venting some unspecified grudge. It is only at this point that anyone realizes Gard is dead.
  • Noodle Incident: He had a grudge against Gard for something the latter did. Whatever it is, he's not telling.
  • Rape as Backstory: He had a sister who was gang-raped by a war-band of orcs, forced to carry an orc child to term, and even though she was rescued, she was so traumatized, she threw herself off a cliff to her death.
  • Wacky Marriage Proposal: In chapter 18, Makoto has a vision that Jake would do this to princess Flora, and she'd accept.

     Beautiful Avel 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/b_avel.jpg
Don't drop me!
A clone of Avel created by Mireru when he fell into her lake.
  • The Atoner: The moment he gains sentience and is set free from the lake, he begs Makoto for forgiveness and tries to at least begin to make up for Avel's jerkassery by gifting Makoto his Astena granted holy sword.
  • Bridal Carry: How he's brought out of Mireru's lake.
  • Casual Kink: To Makoto's dismay, he liked it when Makoto drove a stake right into Avel's rectum.
  • Gender Bender: When he reappears in chapter 16, he has taken the form of a young woman. He is able to change back and forth at will. Said transformation is so complete female Avel is able to become pregnant — as seen when Makoto's Eye shows him a vision of a possible future in which he and Avel are a couple.
  • Good Counterpart: Invoked. Mireru crafts him from the good parts of Avel's soul... Must have been a challenging endeavor.

     Geese Rudolph 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3_95.jpg
Hello pilgrim...
A high-level woodmaster that Makoto encounters as he's preparing to head to the vampire's stronghold.
  • Dhampir: Vampire father, human mother.
  • Heroic Neutral: Despite being a dhampir, and having a full-blooded vampire for a daughter, he's still a noble individual, though he can't or won't intervene directly in affairs between vampires and humans, aside from those who are his daughter's enemies.
  • Hypocrite: Defied. When Makoto "peeks" at him using his Magic Eye, he lets him. Primarily because he approached Makoto and the Raslian sisters first, projecting a dangerous magic aura.
  • Mentor Archetype: He offers to teach Makoto the ways of the woodmaster, after seeing Makoto try out his moves, and learning that not only has Makoto been at it for a week, but is entirely self-taught... and realizing it would be a waste to not nurture such a talent. Makoto happily accepts.
  • Secret Test of Character: He approaches Makoto wielding a dangerous aura. When Makoto moves to protect the Raslian sisters, he's impressed.

     Pegasus Riders 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pegasus_4.jpg
Captain Erythia in the front, and the back row from left to right: Cecilia, Est, Ciel, and Elizabeth.
Tasked by Duke Ray De Van La Mireburg the 7th to escort Makoto back to Maze City, Lana from Maze City, Luan. Though things don't end so easily...

As A Whole:

  • Amazon Brigade: The pegasus riders are all female.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Captain Erythia is the toughest of them and she's in charge.
  • Badass Crew: They're not just a group of pretty faces. They are hardened veterans and can kick ass when there's a need for it.
  • Good Bad Girl: Aside from Captain Erythia, they are all very, very curious about sex in general and Makoto in particular, even though some of them have, or have had, boyfriends. Est is the most direct about it.

Est:

  • Cooldown Hug: Asks for one from Makoto in advance, expecting to get yelled at by Captain Erythia for going AWOL to help Makoto, even though it was a clear emergency situation, because she didn't communicate with her superiors before volunteering her aid. This makes Beautiful Avel jealous.
  • Expressive Hair: Her Idiot hair wiggles when she's happy or excited, and droops when she's depressed.
  • Genki Girl: Very energetic.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: While the rest of the Pegasus Riders were one-shots, she keeps joining up with Makoto's party, helping him in his adventures.
  • Idiot Hair: One lock right in the center of her head sticks straight up in the air for no reason.
  • Thanks for the Mammary: On the receiving end. When Makoto is holding her as they're riding her pegasus, one of his hands winds up on her breast. She treats it as an accident.
  • Unprovoked Pervert Payback: Downplayed as much as possible while still being present. While Makoto might be perverted to set up his own private beach as a nude beach, the fact that Est went there, willingly, knowing this full well in advance, and still chose to participate, means she shouldn't be calling him a pervert because he caught an eyeful of her naked chest, nor should she shy away and scream "KYAA!" for getting an eyeful of his exposed nether regions, doubly so considering she's seen them before. In fact, she should be grateful Makoto let her wear a bikini bottom as a courtesy.

Goddesses

     Astena 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/12_3.jpg
Be grateful I deign to show my self to you unworthy sots!
The first goddess Makoto meets, because she summoned him, and then abandoned him when he didn't measure up to her initial screening.
  • Arch-Enemy: Of Makoto and Linia
  • Beauty Is Bad: She's very physically attractive, and utterly abhorrent.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: She feels insulted? Prepare to face a Cruel and Unusual Death, repeatedly, for all eternity!
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: She is honestly flummoxed when she's refused, especially if said refusal comes from somebody that doesn't want to betray those who treated him kindly, or is well aware of how Goddess Astena is completely untrustworthy.
  • Fatal Flaw: Arrogance and Impatience.
  • Jerkass God: Summon someone into the god chamber without notice or consent? Deride him for lacking abilities you seek, and which is beyond his control? Refuse to send him back home because he lacks the skills and attributes he has no control over? He's an annoying pest that deserves to be dumped in a forest half-a-day's walk from the nearest town because he's just so annoying.
  • Lack of Empathy: She has absolutely zero fucks to give, figuratively or literally, to anybody that's not of use to her.
  • Light Is Not Good: She's the goddess of light, and she's despicable.
  • Rapunzel Hair: We can't even see how far down it goes, we just know it easily goes past her waist.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: She does eventually admit she was wrong to throw Makoto away after she summoned him, but not because the act of throwing him away was wrong in and of itself, but because she overlooked the fact that people learn and grow, and his growth since meeting Linia broke records.
  • Sex for Services: One of the biggest perks to serving under her, is to "serve under her" as she promises sex to anyone she recruits into being her follower.
  • Stripperific: One of her goddess powers must be a magical ability to keep her clothes from falling off if she so much as breathes!
  • The Unapologetic: While she does eventually admit she was wrong to throw Makoto away, she does not actually apologize for treating Makoto like dirt, literally. She fails to comprehend why this doesn't impress him enough to want to serve her.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: She starts the story thinking she's in an isekai where the main character will come with bonus "cheat" skills and perks already attached. Unfortunately for Makoto, she's in an isekai that starts the story with a Summon Everyman Hero ritual. So she discards him.

     Linia 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/14_0.jpg
I am sorry, I don't have the power to send you home, Makoto.
The goddess who successfully recruits Makoto and becomes his matron.
  • Benevolent Boss: If you can prove yourself a truly kind and benevolent soul, enough to have her recruit you, she will look after you very, very well.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Justified and combined with Deus ex Machina. When Astena tries to blast Makoto with a magical attack too powerful to block and too fast to dodge, she shows up with Meriam, the goddess of the lake, in tow to block it and to tell the Jerkass God to take a hike. The justification comes from the fact that she told Makoto she'd be watching when she first blessed him as a temporary disciple.
  • Birds of a Feather: She's able to relate to Makoto because they both have personal grudges against Astena and her followers, although Linia's grudge has yet to be fully elaborated on.
  • Gods Need Prayer Badly: She starts out the story desperate for followers, but unlike Astena, doesn't try to force them into it and doesn't compromise on her standards. Both she and Makoto are very, very grateful for it.
  • Precognition: She can see the future, so she knew exactly where Makoto was going to wind up when Astena discarded him.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair easily reaches her middle back.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: She is quite sympathetic to Makoto's plight, and understood full well why he'd be reluctant to be a pawn in a Cosmic Chessgame, so she gave him a one month trial... until he called out Astena to her face, at which point she happily not only made the fellowship permanent, but allowed the Raslian sisters, Maria and Katua, to become sub-believers and gain blessings too.
  • Secret Test of Character: Twice, and Makoto passed both of them, being well rewarded for doing so.
  • Shipper on Deck: She outright tells Maria and Katua that they should marry Makoto, and even makes it happen. By forming a clan around Makoto with Maria and Katua as his followers. The women are flustered and ecstatic, respectively.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: She's modest, elegant, gentle and kind, but she has a will of iron and is downright deadly when enraged.

     Mireru 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mireru.jpg
Did you drop this gold log, or this silver one?
The goddess of the lake.
  • Accidental Murder: She once accidentally steps on Avel's head, crushing it like a grape. Long story.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: She can hold a large log made of gold in one hand, and a large silver one in the other.
  • Gondor Calls for Aid: She rushes to Makoto's inn and begs him for help when evil Avel escapes his watery grave as the disciple of the goddess of darkness.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Antagonize Makoto in front of her, and she will happily drag you under to your watery grave without hesitation, mercy, or remorse.
  • Honest Axe: Invoked. She has the power to do this. As a reward for Makoto clearing out vampires that were harming her followers in her territory, she chooses to do this on Makoto's behalf. She can even make the Good Counterpart of people by drawing out the goodness of their souls, while dragging the evil parts of their souls to their watery graves.
  • Necessary Drawback: She can't invoke her Honest Axe ability, it has to be triggered by either accident, or the supplicant being ignorant that she possess it. Intentionally throwing things, or people, in a body of water, when she is known to be there, and knowing she has that power, and it won't work.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair is probably the longest in the series. Shots of her back indicate it might reach the floor.

     Elielis 
The goddess of darkness.
  • Dark Is Evil: She's the goddess of darkness and she recruits people who burn with thoughts of vengeance, regardless of justification, and makes them into undead.
  • Face Framed in Shadow: Invoked and Justified. She appears in the middle of a moonless night and is the goddess of darkness.

     Cuoria 
The evil god of the sea.
  • Dark Is Evil: Its followers use Dark Magic and it's "the evil god of the sea."
  • God of Evil: It's explicitly called "The evil god of the sea."
  • Human Sacrifice: A major part of its plan to activate the [Great Ritual] involves deliberately drowning humans as sacrifices.
  • Necromancer: An aspect of its power given to its followers is to turn any evil people who drown in the ocean into undead minions.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Its followers need to perform a [Great Ritual] to free it. Sending everything on the surface to the bottom of the sea is a welcome byproduct.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Cuoria (Chapter 18) or Ctoria (Chapter 20). Perhaps it depends on which follower you ask?
  • Tentacled Terror: Considering that its top followers have tentacles instead of legs, and either wear masks featuring tentacles, or have tentacles on their head, one could be forgiven for presuming this god has them too.

Antagonists

     Gard 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gard.jpg
For the crime of having babies cry, I'll kill you!
The first human antagonist Makoto encounters.
  • Asshole Victim: When he winds up dead, nobody mourns him. Everyone is just shocked that Makoto took him down with one punch.
  • Date Rape: Implied. When the constable is releasing Makoto, ruling him innocent in the death of Gard, the constable says that among Gard's possessions is proof positive that he's involved in a considerable amount of misogynistic crimes, and said proof appears to be a bottle of pills...
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He gets pissed off at the smallest slight, or no slight at all.
  • Heman Woman Hater: He may suck up to Aria, as his adventuring superior, but he loathes women for no explained reason.
  • Mugging the Monster: He attacks Makoto twice, not realizing that Makoto is way, way stronger than himself. Even Makoto is shocked, since Gard is a lvl 21 fighter, while Makoto is a level 1 barbarian, and level 1 thief.
  • Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: Combined with Revenge Myopia and Disproportionate Retribution. His response to Aria dumping him from her adventuring party, after catching him red-handed assaulting a hotel guest? He rapes her to death! Or he would have if Makoto didn't happen to encounter him harassing Anna, and call him out on it, disrupting that future...
  • Shame If Something Happened: He tells the elf receptionist, Anna, that her five year old sister could "disappear mysteriously" if she doesn't agree to go on with him on a date.
  • Starter Villain: While Makoto did obliterate a town's worth of zombies, single-handed. The first sentient antagonist Makoto had to face is him.

     Avel Reinsteinl 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/avel01.jpg
At his most charming...
The first of Astena's followers, or prospective followers, introduced.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Makoto, second only to his matron, Astena herself.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: He constantly keeps antagonizing Makoto by promising, and planning to carry out, rape on Makoto's female followers, the Raslian sisters, and has the gall to be shocked that Makoto retaliates with maximum force. What's more, upon his introduction, he goes and antagonizes everyone he comes across, unleashing violence for little to no reason, then, after earning a rather massive righteous grudge, turns his back on them and walks away saying "killing trash is not worth his time."
  • Bring Me My Brown Pants: Or maybe Jizzed in My Pants. As he's bitten by the vampire Julius or Joseph, he gets a rather embarrassing stain on his crotch...
  • The Bully: His favorite pass-time is going around to lower-level adventurers and "giving them friendly advice" that is actually just a bunch of insults and put-downs, then when they're enraged, using his Time Master powers to maim them, purely so he can laugh and smirk at seeing them grovel in fear and pain.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He ultimately drops any pretense of heroism and comes after Makoto, promising to kill him and then use both rape and the Kiss of the Vampire on the Raslian sisters to break their minds and force them to be completely dependent upon him.
  • Casanova Wannabe: His "dream" is to have sex with over 1000 women, purely so he can brag that he's had sex with 1000 women. He doesn't care about their thoughts and feelings, at all. In fact, consent isn't even a consideration...
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Combined with Squishy Wizard and Powers Do the Fighting. He's entirely dependent on his goddess given perks to win a fight. If he's deprived of them, or they're countered, he's a total pushover... which makes one wonder why Astena accepted him.
  • Death Seeker: Implied. When Makoto succeeds at making him Deader Than Dead, Makoto hears a "thank you, I'm finally free" but can't identify the source.
  • The Farmer and the Viper: How does he respond to being rescued from being the thrall of a couple of depraved vampire lords, and having his injuries healed by Makoto and company? Attacking Makoto and threatening to rape the Raslian sisters while Makoto is Forced to Watch. Then, when those same sisters beg Makoto to not kill him in retaliation, shouting that he'd return and rape them! THEN he has the gall to be shocked that Makoto doesn't let him go quietly, knocking him into Meriam's lake and letting the goddess deal with him...
  • Fatal Flaw: His bloated ego and self-righteousness.
  • Groin Attack: Repeatedly on the receiving end. While the first one was entirely accidental, as he snapped out of a vampire thrall as Makoto was ramming him, and they both dodged the wrong way, all future attacks were quite deliberate as the bastard was openly trying to rape one or both of the Raislin sisters at the time.
  • Hate Sink: As a self-righteous bully who dreams of having sex with 1000 women, purely so he can brag about it, cares not one bit for their feelings or consent, and repeatedly goes out of his way to target Makoto and threaten any and all women that Makoto cares for has made it quite clear that he's supposed to be hated on both sides of the fourth wall.
  • Hypocrite: He goes and flaunts his goddess granted perk, in public, attacking people for shits and giggles, and that's just fine. He sees Makoto's Magic Eye, not bothering anyone? He goes and punches Makoto in the face and draws his sword.
  • I Have Your Wife: He's not above using hostages to secure victory, at which point he Would Hit a Girl.
  • Necessary Drawback: His goddess given abilities are indeed powerful, but they have drawbacks he never notes. For example, his Time Master powers only work on people he can see, can only be used 5 times a day, and have a cool-down period of one full minute in battle. So when he's attacked from behind by a vampire lord, he can't resist getting bitten and becoming a thrall.
  • Nominal Hero: Literally. Upon his introduction, he had a "hero" title, purely because he was Astena's follower. His actions though are anything but heroic.
  • The Power of Hate: His Revenge Myopia eventually breeds an "Eternal Hate" skill that causes him to revive and regenerate no matter what Makoto does to him, until he feels his self-righteous vengeance "fulfilled." In response, Makoto kills him no less than 355 times (Makoto counted) before he literally gives up the ghost.
  • Power Perversion Potential: Shortly after being introduced, it is shown that he thinks nothing's wrong with using his Time Master powers to grope and kiss women on the lips against their will. Makoto's foresight saw him doing it to the Raslian sisters, and they were visibly sickened by the experience.
  • Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: He loses any and all sympathy the moment he threatens to rape Katua while Makoto is down on the ground and then openly boasting of selling her to some random brothel.
  • Revenge Myopia: He spends his entire on-screen presence wanting bloody vengeance on Makoto for various defeats, humiliations, and "slights." He utterly refuses to believe that he wouldn't have gone through any of it if he didn't keep antagonizing Makoto, especially by threatening to rape the Raslian sisters.
  • Serial Escalation: Being an unashamed bully, he simply can not tolerate it when his target refuses to be cowed, and when he's shown to be inferior, in anything, so he escalates the level of threat he brings to bear. He notices Makoto "looking" at him, so he punches him in the face, and draws his sword, and backs off only because he's reminded that he's in a public place by the Raslian sisters, so he tries to ambush and molest said sisters on the road. He escalates to trying to rape Katua and sell her off to a brothel. Then when Makoto turns the tables and beats him down, he responds to Katua's pleas for mercy on his behalf by promising to track down and rape both Katua and Maria. THEN he responds to being punished for that, by aiming to physically and mentally rape every woman Makoto knows until they're nothing more than mindless sex puppets, serving his every will. It takes Makoto killing him 355 times, at least, before he finally gets how wrong this pattern is.
  • Smug Snake: He is quite fond of calling people "trash" and letting himself believe he's vastly superior to them on all points, without exception, but the only reason he's ever superior to anyone is that he's blessed by a perk from a goddess. If that's overcome or removed, he's pathetic, but utterly refuses to believe it. In fact, if he's shown mercy, he will immediately go back to antagonizing the person who spared him, and threatening rape on the women he cares about.
  • Suicidal Overconfidence: He lets his goddess granted perks go straight to his head, believing himself invincible, to the point that he not only antagonizes every adventurer he comes across, but rushes off to face an entire mansion full of vampires alone. Not only does this go horrendously wrong for him, he goes and inflicts violence on his saviors the moment he thinks there won't be any witnesses.
  • They Just Dont Get It: He simply can not comprehend that threatening to rape the Raislin sisters in front of Makoto will give him a one way ticket to No Holds Barred Beat Down - ville, while tied to the horses pulling the carriage heading there.
  • Villains Want Mercy: When he's on the wrong end of a beatdown, or getting divine retribution, he Ain't Too Proud to Beg for his life.
  • Would Not Hit a Girl: He does turn away from striking Makoto down with a sword when the Raslian sisters intervene, but what he decides to do then is so, so much worse.

     Julius 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/julius_3.jpg
I Vanna Suck Your Blood, Blwah!
The vampire boss (or so it seems) that Makoto has to face on his first quest chain.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: He is an aristocrat, and as a vampire, is quite evil indeed.
  • Evil Gloating: All the time. He's so fixated on gloating that Makoto was able to take him out with relative ease.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He talks in polite tones and sentences, but he's really just goading, taunting, and toying with his intended victims.
  • Let's You and Him Fight: Bringing a large group of adventurers to face him is dangerous as he can use "hypnosis" to force them to fight each other.
  • Moral Myopia: He shouts his rage at Makoto smashing his front entrance open, after he had already let the rather large adventuring party enter unchallenged and slammed shut the gate behind them, sealing it.
  • Who Are You?: As Makoto is able to take out his (newly converted) followers en mass, he briefly shouts out "who are you and what monstrous barbarian tribe are you from?"
  • Wrong Assumption: When he sends out Avel, under thrall, he boasts that Makoto won't be able to fight at his best, having to hold back to avoid killing a "fellow human." He was completely unaware how much of a Hate Sink Avel is, and that Makoto would be downright eager to have a justifiable excuse to kill him.

     Joseph 
Julius's twin brother, and a fellow vampire.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He does care a great deal about his twin brother, and will avenge him, or try, despite the latter's villainy.
  • Moral Myopia: His brother kidnaps, bites and turns a large crowd of 30-40 year old women? Kidnaps a large number of children? Lures adventurers into their home? Goads, Taunts, and tries to murder them? Nothing wrong with that. Adventurers defend themselves? Or try to stop the carnage? "How dare you?!"
  • Suicidal Overconfidence: He was firmly convinced that Makoto is vastly inferior to himself, and could do nothing to hurt him. Say hello to a massive log through the chest and being slammed through a stone wall, into the mid-day sunlight.

     Bug Baird

As summoned.

True Form
A sub-god of "the evil god of the sea" Ctoria.
  • Affably Evil: Unfailingly polite, yet still "evil."
  • Cult: Was at the head of one, run by fish-men.
  • Cute Monster Girl: In her true form, she's a cyclops, yet is otherwise aesthetically pleasing.
  • Dark Is Evil: It's entirely dark-based and is called "An evil god."
  • Defeat Means Friendship: After a brief tussle, when she finds herself on the losing end, she laughs, surrenders and willingly becomes friends with Makoto.
  • Naked First Impression: Enters the story wearing not one lick of clothing.
  • Spirited Competitor: Apparently. What she likes most is testing her strength against others. When she loses in a straight-up fight with Makoto, she's overjoyed at how strong he is.

Others

     Anna

She's just doing her job.
The secretary who handles registering new adventurers in the group of cities known as The Great Maze.
  • Our Elves Are Different: Aside from the pointed ears, she could pass for human in every way.
  • One-Shot Character: She shows up in the story once, and is never seen again.
  • Pointed Ears: As an elf, this is a given.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: She may be a one-shot, but by resisting Gard's harassment, she gives Makoto the perfect excuse to intervene and deal with Gard, stopping him from raping Aria to death.

     Carmilla Sheyla Le Fahanir 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carmilla.jpg
But Da-ad!
The (presumably adopted) daughter of Geese Rudolph
  • Casting a Shadow: She can hide in shadows, at least inside Rudolph's.
  • Daddy's Girl: Completely devoted to Rudolph.
  • Did Not Think This Through: When she notices Makoto's Magic Eye, she jumps out of her father's shadow and confronts him. If Makoto wasn't such a Nice Guy, he could have killed her, as being a full-blooded vampire, she's the natural enemy of mankind. And there's nothing Rudolph could have done about it.
  • Public-Domain Character: Her name is Carmilla and she's a true-blood vampire.

    Princess Flora 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/flora_0.jpg
Those bastards!
A princess captured by a pirate gang and held captive for an undetermined amount of time at their base on Osawa Island.
  • Defiled Forever: To the point that she wished to die, not believing anyone would ever love her as a woman. Jake disagrees.
  • Driven to Suicide: The abuses she suffered made her try to kill herself, repeatedly, the moment she was freed.
  • Rape as Drama: She is found by "Beautiful" Avel and Makoto's combined party, naked, chained to a bed, and covered in every conceivable human bodily fluid, including blood.
  • Reality Ensues: A woman captured by pirates, and kept alive for her beauty, as opposed to as a hostage, is not likely to be able to keep her chastity.
  • Reality Is Unrealistic: She was made to believe she was pregnant with the child of one of her captors, by repeated gang-rape, and her body started to look the part. This can, and does, indeed happen in reality to women under similar conditions.
