     Spectrenotes 

The Entire Band

  • Barefoot Cartoon Animal: In their first-stage myumon forms; most of them gain shoes as they evolve further, and their UR forms show them in furry, paw-shaped boots.
  • Be Yourself: The conclusion the band comes to in their first episode, when Kanato wonders if they should change their image to stand out among the wackier, more colorful bands of Midicity.
  • Color-Coded Characters: With the exception of their second-stage evolutions, they each stick to a dominant color: Kanato is red-orange, Kikka is blue, Ivary is green, Hideniro is purple, and Maotti is teal. They're represented by these colors in the band's logo as well.
  • Cool Mask: They all have elaborate-looking half-masks in their third evolution.
  • Cute Little Fangs: All their UR forms have them, aside from Hideniro; along with their Facial Markings and furry footwear, the fangs enhance their animal-like appearance further than that of most other characters.
  • Fish out of Water: They came from Brifrancity, Sound Planet's music and arts capital.
    • Fantasy Counterpart Culture: Brifrancity is in "the far west," and Spectrenotes exhibit a fair number of European traits; judging by the name, it's probably meant to correspond to Britain and France.
  • Nice Hat
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: They are based on BIGMAMA, who provide their music.
  • Serious Business: They nearly break up due to a fight over how to eat fried eggs.

Voiced by: Yoshimasa Hosoya (Japanese), Teruyuki Tanzawa (Game), Christopher Sabat (English)

Aion (Gt)

Voiced by: Kouki Uchiyama (Japanese) Junichi Yanagida (Game), Jerry Jewell (English)

  • A God Am I: Downplayed. He proclaims himself as a dark sun god as part of his quirks.
  • Absolute Cleavage: Or, it would be the case if he were a girl, given how low the cut of his shirt is.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Has white hair in the game proper, but the anime gives him blonde hair instead.
  • Aloof Big Brother: To Ailane.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: It's said that he has a communication disorder, where he needs to pose in order to speak clearly, but his unwillingness to go outside and musical genius could potentially mean that it's something more.
  • Badass Longcoat
  • The Big Guy: He's 192 cm, which makes him the tallest Shingancrimsonz member, if not one of the tallest characters that appears in the show.
  • Hidden Depths: Episode 10 of the second season reveals that there's much more to him than meets the eye.
  • Hikikomori
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy
  • Mr. Imagination: Is known as a chuunibyou in the anime community and slips into A God Am I-like speech or refers to himself as a monster on occasion.
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Secretly Wealthy: He came from an affluent family, though he has since cut ties with them.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Crow, frequently.
  • White Prince: Displayed the typical traits associated with this trope before he was kicked out of his home.

     Demons Venom 

The Entire Band

Demonbat (Vo)

Voiced By: SeshiroX

  • Beast Man: Notably retains his fur in his UR form; he borders between this and Little Bit Beastly.
  • Cool Mask: Subverted; he wears a fairly silly-looking one when practicing BDSM.
  • Has a Type: Almost literally; he only wants someone with AB type blood for a bride. Mummy points out at one point that he's being too picky.
  • The Leader
  • Multicolored Hair: Purple with yellow streaks.
  • Odd Friendship: With Kanato. They strike up a friendship after playing a show together, and Demonbat appreciates how easy it is to scare Kanato.
  • Sadist: Somewhat downplayed as there is very little mention of it within the game itself, outside of his official profile and one bromide.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Type AB blood.

Demonmangu (Gt)


Demonsmog (B)


Tasmaniandemon (Key)


  • Canon Foreigner: Silhouette from the Skylit doesn't have a fifth member or a keyboard player.

Wood Element Bands

The Entire Band

  • Bishōnen
  • Fan Community Nickname: In-Universe, Shu☆Zo refers to the band's fans as Dream Galaxy Tourists, and the fans seem to use it to refer to themselves as well.
  • Rock Trio: Shu☆Zo is the guitarist/vocalist, Riku is the bassist, and Kai is the drummer.
  • The Rival: They are this to Arcareafact and Shingancrimsonz.

Shu☆Zo (Vo+Gt)

Voiced by: Mamoru Miyano (Anime), Daisuke Kasuya (Game), Vic Mignogna (English)

  • Accidental Misnaming: He can never seem to pronounce anyone's band names right when he meets them.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Same as Rom's entry.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: His jerk side usually only comes out whenever Rom's around.

  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Back when he was in a band with Rom.
  • Ill Girl: Male example. He seems to have some sort of illness, and regularly visits the doctor.
  • Lucky Charms Title: His stage name is spelled with a star in the middle of it.
  • Mysterious Past: His past with Rom and what caused them to break up hasn't been revealed. And Shuzo himself refuses to talk about the past.
  • Say It With Stars: Nearly every time he opens his mouth, his sentences are decorated with stars.
  • Stepford Smiler: He is still very upset about whatever happened between him and Rom.

     Dropout Sensei 

Then Entire Band

  • Japanese Beetle Brothers: The band members include a stag beetle, rhinoceros beetle, and a lady bug.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Somewhat subverted their music is provided by a real band called Asstellus, but the characters are not really based around them. However, Dropout Sensei is more based around Asstellus' music.
  • Rock Trio

Kuwagatatsuya (Vo+Gt)


Kabutomoaki (B)


Tentoumutsumi (D)


  • Badass Cape: Has one in most of his outfits.
  • Canon Foreigner: Asstellus doesn't have a third member, or an official drummer. This case is more justified than Tasmanian Demon's inclusion because Dropout Sensei isn't really based off of Asstellus.
  • Freudian Trio: The ego.
  • The Generic Guy: Claims to have been this before joining the band.
  • Sempai Kouhai: The kouhai to Tatsuya and Tomoaki's senpai.

Creamteddy (B)


  • Not a Morning Person
  • Sleepyhead: She falls asleep in the middle of conversations. She's almost always found sleeping. This actually caused the band to hold a concert without her at one point.

Pigmacaron (D)

Voiced by: Izumi Chiba (Japanese), Terri Doty (English)

  • Early-Bird Cameo: In the anime, she's seen in the audience during season 1 concerts long before her proper introduction in season 2.
  • Fangirl: Of Trichronika.
    • And most other male bands, actually. During one of the school events, she meets with Dropout Sensei and she immediately develops a crush on all 3 of them. Tentoumutsumi ends up developing a crush on her too, though Pigmacaron has already left when this was revealed.
    • Even after finding out that Lyna is a girl, she still ends up thinking about her.

Shakky (Dr)


     Yokazenohorizon 

The Entire Band

  • Bland-Name Product: Each of them has a signature fashion item from a label transparently based on a real one. For example, Kuuska always wears his stole from "Madidas."
  • Multicolored Hair: All of them, to some degree; Lycao and Kuuska have noticeable gradients, and Jalope and Uraragi each have at least three colors going on.

Lycao (Vo+Ba)

Voiced by: Makoto Furukawa
  • Face of a Thug: He looks menacing and unapproachable, but is actually quite shy and prone to laughing quietly to himself at inopportune times.
  • Lead Bassist
  • Seldom-Seen Species: He's an african wild dog.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: His signature garment is his designer suit.
  • Verbal Tic: Tends to tack "...desu" onto the ends of plain form sentences, covering for his own lack of formality.

Jalope (Gt)

Kuuska (Key)

  • Japanese Pronouns: Refers to himself as "booku," as a form of personal branding.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Known for his quick thinking skills and commitment to social networking. And of course, wears glasses.

     Studdo Ban Gyasshu 

Cheety (Vo+Gt)

Voiced By: Saori Hayashi (2013), Sae Aiuchi (2018-)

Lyna (B)


  • Bifauxnen
  • Even the Girls Want Her: In fact, she may be single-handedly the reason why the band has so much (in-game) fans in the first place. Also, interesting to note that even the anime lists this band as just being below Trichronika, which is the most popular band and composed mostly of fangirls.
    • At one point, a rabid fangirl of almost all male characters, Pigmacaron of Dolly Dolci, actually gets a crush on Lyna. Cue her gasps and conflicting inner monologues when she finds out that Studdo Banggyashu is a girls band.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The tomboy to Cheety's girly girl.
  • Workaholic: Dislikes off days.

Zebrina (Key)


  • Gamer Chick: Zebrina is known to be one of the most hardcore gamers in MIDI City. During one event, she invites the entire band to hang out at her house. They let the others play video games, but everyone gets slightly pissed at her after she let everyone start with difficult levels.
  • The Stoic
  • Techno Wizard: She can program computers.

Fennely (D)


     Tekebakitsu Shou 

The Entire Band

  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: They are based around a real band called Usotsuki that provides their music.
  • Sdrawkcab Name: Their name can be (and often is) read as "Tekebakitsusou;" when the syllables are reversed, it spells "usotsukibakete," which can be translated as "Usotsuki appearing in disguise."
  • Youkai: Except for Fujiraid, who's a real animal, their species come from Japanese folklore.

Takeppar (Vo+Gt)

Voiced By: Masakazu Takeda

  • Barefoot Cartoon Animal: In myumon form. In human form, he gets shoes shaped like webbed feet.
  • Catchphrase: "Tekebakitsu Shou's flickering flame live, start!" before live shows.
  • Cranky Neighbor: To the rest of the band, though he doesn't give them quite as much of a hard time as he did at first.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Ironically, he dislikes spicy food.
  • First-Person Perspective: His thoughts, and only his, are relayed to the reader in the band's episodes.
  • Grumpy Bear: He's sour to begin with, but it's especially pronounced around his much more agreeable and/or energetic bandmates.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's often rude to others and complains about just about everything, but his bandmates point out that he may care too much for his own good. Indeed, the complaints he files are usually made out of genuine concern.
  • Kappa: Specifically, a fire kappa.
  • Nice Hat
  • Removable Shell: His is a backpack.
  • The Snark Knight: Threatening to file a complaint borders on being his Catchphrase, but he gets flustered at earnest compliments.
  • Sweet Tooth
  • Talking to Plants: Known to talk to small flowers growing by the side of the road.
  • Verbal Tic: Ends his sentences with "-paa."
