General Character Tropes

  • Aerith and Bob: The setting features characters with normal names, such as John, Elaine, and Vaughn, as well as entirely fictional names, such as Krolik, Crail, and Broven.
  • Differently Powered Individual: Similar to My Hero Academia, people without superpowers are the exception rather than the role. John for example doesn't seem to display any superpowers, and as a result, he's deemed a "cripple".
  • Everyone is a Super: A deconstruction. In this world just about everyone has some form of power or ability, but how powerful that ability is varies from person to person. This can be measured by the system that ranks a person's power on a scale of low to high tier, with a rare few basically winning the Super Power Lottery and being considered "god-tier". As a result, society is very much a Might Makes Right sort of place where those with high-tier powers can bully and push around anyone under them without any consequences because their powers make them nearly undefeatable, mid and low tiers squabble and fight amongst each other when not tormenting anyone lower than them on the totem pole, and the rare few born without powers (derided as "cripples") are basically slaves and punching bags to all of the people above.
  • Glowing Eyes: Anytime someone activates their ability, their eyes begin to glow.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: High-tiers do this to intimidate lower-tiered individuals.
  • Melting-Pot Nomenclature: Overlaps with Aerith and Bob; some names are clearly invented, while some seem to be derived from Chinese (e.g. Wenqi, Meili) and Japanese (e.g. Remi, Rei).
  • Might Makes Right: People with more powerful abilities and higher power levels exist at the top of the food chain. Even Seraphina notes that she can do whatever she wants because she is stronger than everyone else.
  • No Pronunciation Guide: Most of the names, even the made-up ones, are fairly straightforward, but some, like Isen’s, are a bit more confusing; is it IS-en? EIS-en?
  • One Person, One Power: People are strictly born with a single power, however their power may have multiple different yet linked applications (e.g. Isen with his power "Hunter").
  • Power Levels: Stated in-universe to range from 1 to 10. There are even people who can gauge ability levels for a price.
    • As stated by the Word of God, the power levels go as so: 1-1.9 are considered low-tiers, 2-3.4 are mid-tiers, 3.5-4.9 are elite-tiers and 5+ are considered high-tiers.
    • In the high-tier category is the sub-category, god-tier. With a power level of 6.0 or higher, these guys are feared by all and are said to be impossible to defeat by those outside of the god-tier. And if you haven't forgotten, Seraphina has a power level of 8.
  • The Worf Effect: The differences in power levels make a considerable difference in terms of fight outcomes. Those that are higher tier are usually able to effortlessly deal with lower-tier opponents.

John Doe

Power Level: 1.2 note 
Superpower: None note 

The male lead. A third-year student at Wellston Private High School who ended up as a frequent target of bullying for many of his superpowered peers due to his lack of superpowers.

Despite all of the abuse he goes through on a day-to-day basis, John remains a generally nice person unless he gets pushed too far. John often becomes frustrated by the attitudes of his classmates, and of society in general towards the non-powered. His past is a subject of much speculation—especially from Arlo.


  • All of the Other Reindeer: As a cripple, John receives disdain and ostracization from most of his classmates.
  • All Your Powers Combined: Has the ability to copy every active ability around him and use them together to create new combos that the original user can't create. John's power, name currently unknown, if you activate your power near him allows him to a) sense it, allowing him to find you even if you're invisible, b) copy your power power at what appears to be a higher power level than your own, and c) combine the powers he has access to, such as Blow You Away and Wolverine Claws to get Razor Wind as well. There are probably limits, because it's implied it's possible for people to be stronger than him.
  • Almighty Janitor: John is the second strongest character in the series and can easily go for broke and become the most powerful if he were to play his cards right. However, he spends his days pretending to be the school cripple and taking shit from almost everyone.
  • Anti-Hero: Once John starts falling back into his former violent and tyrannical persona, he ends up going down this route to the point of brutally beating down those who've been bullying him and Sera.
  • Anti-Villain: He really starts to fall into this by chapter 138 when he outright attacks Blyke. All the folks that John attacked previously were people who wronged him or Sera in some way. However, his attack on Blyke was the first time John attacked someone who never wronged him. The only reason John attacked Blyke was because John is aiming to destroy Wellston's flawed hierarchy system where the strong tend to bully the weak.
  • Arc Words: "Everyone has something important to offer."
  • Armor-Piercing Response: Gives one to Arlo during an argument.
    Arlo: I'm telling you, whoever these guys are have been planning her abduction for over a month now! Why can't you get that through your head?
    John: You know, Arlo... Not everyone spends an entire month planning the downfall of a single person.
    Arlo: ...
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Subverted; despite his decent knowledge of self-defense enabling him to fight off some of his less powerful bullies, he’s still considered a weakling for having no abilities. Played straight when he was at New Bostin.
  • Badass Normal: Deconstructed; defending himself against even low-tier ability users is dangerous. He is frequently sent to the infirmary.
  • Beneath the Mask: John gets very, very violent when provoked enough.
  • Berserk Button: If anyone tends to piss him off more than anyone else, it's Arlo. Especially after Arlo betrayed and ambushed him in an attempt to force John back into the school hierarchy.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He’s one of the more polite, mild-mannered characters, but he can hold his own in a fight pretty well despite having no abilities and has a surprisingly nasty temper when provoked enough.
  • Break the Cutie: From the moment he introduced himself as a powerless individual, he’s been the target of daily bullying from him peers. It only gets worse after Seraphina is suspended.
  • Book Dumb: John is not a terrible student (mainly in the B and C range) but comes off as this in comparison to the higher ranked students due to his constant struggles with schoolwork. In the past, it is shown that when he puts in the effort, he can get an A with Seraphina's help.
  • Boxing Lessons for Superman: Despite being the one of the strongest characters in the series, John has taken it upon himself to an incredibly skilled fighter, to the point he could beat most mid tiers and a few high tiers without his ability. Justified as his ability varies in effectiveness and may be completely useless when facing someone who doesn't have abilities.
  • Brought Down to Badass: A self-imposed action by John due to the authority worker, Keon, breaking him mentally. Even without powers, he can still hold his own against multiple low-tier opponents.
  • Brown Bag Mask: To hide his identity, John wears a brown paper lunch bag when he confronts Zeke and Juni over their recent bullying. He eventually replaces needing to wear a paper bag with a black ski mask.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Even though John shows himself to be capable of taking on power users and beating them brutally, bullies still target him for his "cripple" status. He almost tears one group to shreds with his ability when they take it too far.
  • Bully Hunter: Despite his desire for a peaceful school life, John doesn't hesitate to get involved when he sees instances of bullying.
  • Byronic Hero: Very strong shades of this - John is intelligent and perceptive, emotionally sensitive, yet often self-centered, world-weary because of his Dark and Troubled Past, has strong personal beliefs about the society he is in, and is hell-bent on living life on his own terms without almost any regard how it impairs his own life or the lives others.
  • Challenging the Bully: Constantly seen doing this against the Wellston bullies since John doesn't give a damn about being part of the school's hierarchy.
  • Character Development: After trying to start over at Wellston High, John starts to go back to his old destructive habits when it becomes clear that Wellston is no better than the New Bostin High School that he was originally expelled from.
  • Color-Coded Characters: White and Black. White when he's in pretender mode and Black when he's in normal mode.
  • Cool Mask: Changes from wearing a Brown Bag Mask to a black ski mask.
  • Combat Pragmatist: He doesn't hold back in a fight, using anything he can to his advantage. Other than his ability that is, and even that can change depending on the circumstances.
  • Comes Great Responsibility: John is an advocate of this and expresses to Seraphina that he wishes that those with abilities would use them to protect the weak rather than to oppress them.
  • Consummate Liar: Is able to convince the entire school that he's a cripple. In addition, manages to convince Juni that he's not the one chasing her down despite literally coming through the doors right after her.
  • Cowardly Lion: John shows shades of this in early chapters. Justified in that he's facing ability users every day and getting sent to the infirmary daily which makes him somewhat reluctant to engage unless absolutely necessary. As the series goes on, he sheds this.
  • Crazy-Prepared: When John starts to go about using his power to beat up his fellow students, he makes sure to be well-prepared beforehand.
    • One example is when John copies Yuline's and Heinz's abilities to make sure that he provides Juni a brutal beatdown.
    • Stocking up on 3 other copied powers from Tanner, Rouker, and Abel before taking on a more powerful foe in Isen some could argue may have been a coincidence, but when it was time for John to fight Blyke, he made sure to have a student's strength ability copied beforehand. This turned out to be the right choice since Blyke tried to fight John with simple hand-to-hand combat to keep him from copying his ability. However, John already being adapt in hand-to-hand combat, along with having the copied strength ability, forced Blyke into using his Energy Beam anyway. After losing the fight, Blyke admits to Remi and Isen when they check up on him in the infirmary that the black-masked man (John) was prepared in every way to cover all his possible weaknesses.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle:
    • In the past, John performed this against his old classmates at New Bostin.
    • In the present, John dishes these types of fights out when his god-tier power is active. His first example was when he destroys Arlo/Ventus/Meili in a 1 on 3 fight. Afterwards, he beats down Zeke, Juni, Tanner, Rouker, Abel, Isen, Illena, Wenqi, Krolik, Crail, and Misa to the point that their bloodied and lying on the ground unconscious.
    • In chapter 138, John beats up Blyke to the point of him lying on the ground unconscious.
    • In chapter 143, John beats up Cecile to the point of her lying on the ground unconscious.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: In a transcript from his previous high school, John was revealed to be an anti-social and extremely violent and aggressive student, ultimately resulting in him being expelled for taking down half of his class for an "unexplained" reason. The reason he doesn't use his ability is because he fears that he will become a monster.
  • Destination Defenestration: John pulls one on Gavin in their first fight.
  • The Dreaded: Those who know of John's ability and what he can do are visibly unnerved by his presence. When Isen finds out his file from John's previous school, it reads like an SCP Foundation entry, complete with starting with special containment procedures. "Do not activate your power when near him".
  • The Dog Was the Mastermind: Is this to Remi and Blyke as they're looking for the serial assaulter that copies abilities, but don't even consider John since he's known to be a cripple.
  • Establishing Character Moment: John is introduced as an average high school student who is bored with his classes. When he witnesses a fight between two power users, his initial thoughts are to just ignore it when things get too chaotic. However, when he sees another fight with a student getting brutalized, he doesn't hesitate to get involved.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: John usually gels his hair before attending school. When John stops slicking back his hair, it signals his slide into his older, more hateful, personality.
  • Eye for an Eye: Basically what John's motivation is for why he rejected Arlo's apology in chapter 145. John hasn't forgiven Arlo for treating him like shit and claiming to have ruined his life, which leads John to believe that Arlo deserves to have his life ruined in return.
  • Fights Like a Normal: John, after the revelation that he hides or suppresses his power to appear 'normal'.
  • Fight Unscene: His beatdown against Abel on the school roof isn't shown.
  • Foil:
    • John and Seraphina are on opposite ends of the power spectrum and in terms of academic ability. Despite their differences in power, it is John who comes off as more independent whereas Seraphina was constrained by the expectations others had of her.
    • He also serves as one for Arlo given that they both have the power to be school Kings, and that Arlo goes about controlling Wellston from the top while John goes against the system.
  • The Force Is Strong with This One: The passive effect of John's ability allows him to sense any power users around him, regardless of whether he's seen them activate their ability or not. In a world where Everyone is a Super, this allows him track almost everyone.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: It's implied that John wasn't always a powerhouse back at his old school, but rather started off as a low-tier who mastered his ability and quickly rose to the top and became a brutal dictator.
  • Foreshadowing: John, when he noticed that someone was following him and Seraphina when they were leaving the mall.
    • Also, John is the only character whose speech bubbles change colour when he's not pretending to be a cripple.
    • In addition, you clearly see his eyes glow in the first two chapters.
    • His old school transcript came with a warning:"NOTE:Do not activate ability when handling situations involving John.
  • Guile Hero: Has to rely on his head to get out of dangerous situations.
  • Hates Everyone Equally: Hates everyone be it low-tiers, mid-tiers, or even high-tiers because the abuse he has taken. The sole exception is his family and Sera.
  • Held Back in School: Due to being expelled in from his old school, John had to redo his 2nd year.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: He says this word for word when Arlo confronts him at the infirmary for having sent Isen there.
  • I Hate Past Me: Possibly the reason he’s been keeping his ability a secret from his classmates. He got so out of control at his old school that he beat up half of his class and was kicked out.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: He’s always wanted to fit in as a normal student and live a relatively quiet life. Unfortunately for him, he’s never gotten to.
  • I Shall Taunt You: Because of he's incapable of fighting with an ability, John finds himself taunting his opponents nearly as often as beating them hand-to-hand.
  • Logical Weakness: Because of his ability to copy powers, it's hinted that it can be mitigated as long as powers aren't activated in his presence.
  • Meaningful Name: “John Doe” is a generic male placeholder name for individuals whose identities are unknown or must be kept secret. This fits with him being the “school cripple” and the most ordinary person at his school. It also fits with his mysterious past which he would much rather keep hidden from his classmates.
  • Morality Pet: To Seraphina. Despite not sharing the same ideals, she is nonetheless protective of him and defends him from bullies.
  • Mr. Fanservice: One striking shot of John waking up in the morning, revealing his surprisingly muscular upper half.
  • Made of Iron: Gets run over by a truck and just gets back up to threaten bloody murder on guys who did it to him.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Even more so than Arlo, since he's able to get make use of Arlo's plan to expose him and turns him into a pawn to keep Sera safe, albeit unwillingly as well as manipulate nearly everyone in the series, even Sera, something even Arlo can't do.
  • Master Actor: Is extremely good at faking his emotions to the point that Arlo and Elaine are shocked at how John can go from unstable psycho to a well adjusted student at the flip of a switch. He's so good at it that Juni doesn't make the connection that John was the one chasing after her despite the only difference being that he doesn't have a paper bag on him.
  • Mysterious Past: John lies about his past, claiming to have been homeschooled. When Isen investigates, he finds that John was expelled from his previous high school after beating up half his class.
  • Nerves of Steel: One of the reasons Arlo takes an interest in John is his seemingly complete lack of fear of high-tiers despite apparently having no power.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Due to the fact that John turns out to have a powerful copying ability, he tends to dish these out towards people who are vastly weaker than him.
    • When John finally uses his ability to fight back, he goes far beyond self-defense. He brutally defeats Ventus and Meili, culminating in him stabbing the incapacitated Ventus in the back while the boy begs to be allowed to save Meili from falling to her potential death.
    • Later on after Zeke beats up John and a depowered Sera, John exacts vengeance on Zeke by beating down Zeke to a bloody pulp until he's lying on the ground unconscious.
    • A couple chapters later, he beats down Juni to a bloody pulp until she's lying on the ground unconscious out of Revenge for her bullying and exposing a depowered Sera.
    • By chapter 125, John beats up Tanner, Rouker and Abel to the point of them lying on the ground unconscious. Part of this is him having reached a breaking point regarding all the bullying, and because he's copying other's powers that will help him search for a kidnapped Sera.
    • In chapter 126, John beats up Isen in order to get his ability to help with the search for a kidnapped Sera.
    • In chapter 130, John beats up Illena, Wenqi, Krolik, Crail, and Misa for their roles in kidnapping and beating up a depowered Sera.
    • In chapter 138, John begins his plan of dismantling the school hierarchy by beating up Blyke, who's the school's 6th strongest "Jack".
    • In chapter 143, John continues his plan of dismantling the school hierarchy by beating up Cecile, who's the school's 5th strongest, and Wellston's former "Queen".
  • Nothing Personal: Basically what he says to Cecile in chapter 140. Despite Cecile believing that she's teamed up with John to dethrone Arlo, John makes it clear to her that after beating up Blyke, who's the school's 6th strongest, Cecile is the next that he will need to beat up since she's the school's 5th strongest.
  • Not So Different:
    • Despite being on opposite sides of the power spectrum, neither John nor Seraphina seemed to be able to escape judgement and criticism from their peers. It's partly why they became friends.
    • In the past, he was an even more vicious tyrant in school than Arlo. In the present day, it's shown that he knows from experience what it's like to be a King.
  • Odd Friendship: How he became friends with Sera is this. One would expect that the two to never speak with one another given that they're on opposite ends of the power spectrum. However, John constantly going against what Sera tried to force him to do eventually leads to her gaining respect for him as a weakling that stands up to the strong.
  • One-Winged Angel: John is perfectly capable of dealing with ability-users on their own. John's appearance changes when he begins to break down. When he finally snaps, he gains black speech bubbles and a far more menacing gold and black aura, and defeats Arlo, the King of the school, and two other strong Ability-users in what could only be described as a Curb-Stomp Battle.
  • Order Versus Chaos: The Chaos to Arlo's Order. Arlo goes to great lengths to keep the strong-to-weak hierarchy at Wellston intact. John however wants no part of it given that he's already experienced how bad the system turned out to be at New Bostin, and constantly goes against those in Wellston's established hierarchy.
  • Ordinary High-School Student: Subverted; while he introduces himself as one, he turns out to actually be ordinary, as he has no supernatural ability, unlike everyone else. Double Subverted later on when it turns out he does have an ability; it was so powerful that he managed to take out half his class at his past school.
  • Physical God: Has the power capable of being one, especially since he can copy others, and even tweak them to come up with better abilities against the original user.
  • The Plan: After witnessing Arlo's strong-to-weak hierarchy at Wellston High put a depowered Sera into a situation where she gets kidnapped and beaten up, John becomes motivated enough to finally take action against it. He teams up with Cecile to begin dismantling the hierarchy with their first target being to beat up the school's "Jack," Blyke, in chapter 138.
  • Playing Card Motifs: The Joker. Likely represents how he disregards the social structure of his school and acts like a cripple despite being one of the most powerful characters in the series. By chapter 139, the Wellston students finally begin referring to the mysterious black-masked person (not knowing that it's John) as the Joker of the school since he's been going against the hierarchy by beating up the royals of the school.
  • Power Copying: This seems to be his secret ability.
  • Power Level: 1.2 Low-tier. 7.0 God-tier (two years ago)
    • It's revealed in chapter 148 that John was a 7.0 God-tier when he was expelled from New Bostin two years ago. What John's power level has possibly risen up to in the current day is still up in the air.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech:
    • Gives one to Zeke claiming that he's worthless trash that will never contribute or amount to anything to society due to how he acts using his powers just to beat up a cripple.
    • In chapter 132 when Arlo confronts John for his attack on Isen, John makes it clear that Isen is just as bad as everyone else in the school for how he treated John during the fake interview, and absolutely deserved the beatdown John did to him. John then proceeds to call out Arlo for being too fixated on keeping the school's strongest-to-weakest hierarchy intact, and vows to destroy it.
  • Red Baron:
    • John ends up being labeled as the "Shadow King" by Terrence after the latter learns what the former is truly capable of after discovering that John defeated Arlo, Ventus, and Meili in a fight.
    • By chapter 139, the school students start calling his masked persona as the "Joker" who's been going around beating people up around Wellston.
  • Rejected Apology: In chapter 145, Arlo tries to apologize to John for everything he did to him. John immediately rejects it under the belief that Arlo isn't being genuine, and is just saying it to save his hierarchy before John completely destroys it.
  • The Reveal:
    • When he finally drops his cripple facade and begins to use his power on others, such as defeating Arlo, Meili and Ventus in a 1 vs. 3.
    • The article that Isen found showing John's expulsion from New Bostin finally shows off John's power level and ability in chapter 148. Back when he was a New Bostin student 2 years ago, John was at a 7.0 God-tier power level, and his ability is called Aura Manipulation.
  • Revenge: Prior to beating up Blyke in chapter 138, all the Wellston students who John ends up providing a brutal beatdown to have wronged him or Sera in some way previously, which John gets them back for. In order: Arlo, Meili and Ventus ambushed and attacked him, Zeke bullied him and Sera, Juni showed off an article she wrote that revealed Sera losing her power to the school, Tanner and Rouker bullied him, Abel attacked him for hanging out on the school roof, Isen treated him horribly during the fake interview, and Illena, Krolik, Crail, Wenqi and Misa all kidnapped and beat up Sera.
  • Secret Keeper: Due to the Van Killer attack, John's one of the first that knows about Sera losing her powers. However, the secret is out once Juni shows off her article about Sera's depowerment to the school.
  • Sensor Character: John's ability allows for him to sense when someone has their ability active nearby. Chapter 148 for example shows him off sensing Isen through the other side of a wall.
  • Smug Smiler: Once he starts actually fighting back, he really starts showing off these kind of smiles. Especially towards those he knows are jerks, such as Arlo and Cecile.
  • Un-Sorcerer: His special power is his lack of special powers. Except not.
  • Strike Me Down: Threatens Arlo to do it in chapter 145 when Arlo prepares to attack John to stop him from finishing off Wellston's hierarchy. John however claims that he doesn't plan on retaliating since it will make it look like Arlo is beating up a cripple, which would piss the rest of the school off towards Arlo since it would look like Arlo is choosing to mess with a weakling rather than deal with the Joker that's been beating up the school. As a result, Arlo is forced to let John go.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: His father looks just like an older version of the son. It's also made obvious that John copied his cripple-hair look from his dad.
  • Superpower Lottery: With the revelation of John's ability, it is clear that he too won big at the lottery, especially since he has the ability to copy the powers used by his opponents, and even use them all at once to make combo moves.
  • Supervillain: Once John starts to fall back into his violent persona, he became a masked Anti-Villain that beat up those who wronged him and Sera. However, starting from his attack on Blyke, John goes into full-blown Supervillain territory since he's decided that Arlo's hierarchy is the problem that causes the non-stop bullying at Wellston High. Wearing a black ski-mask, John comes off as an unknown attacker that the students begin referring to as the school's "Joker" that's been beating up Wellston's top students. Unbeknownst to them, John is showing that not even the top students in the school can get in the way of his plan to destroy the hierarchy.
  • Throat-Slitting Gesture: After beating up Cecile in chapter 143, a masked John looks towards the Wellston students (such as Otis) that watched the beatdown, and performs the throat-slitting gesture to scare them off.
  • Trauma Button: The sight of Keon causes John to remember back to his painful memories of when he beat up his New Bostin classmates, which is what happens in chapter 135 when Keon arrives at Wellston to interrogate John. It makes it clear that John has PTSD when it comes to Keon. The trauma is due to Keon mentally abusing John through a previous interrogation by using his memory remembering ability to make John relive beating down his classmates over and over.
  • Villain Team-Up: In a way, John and Cecile play the villain duo that goes about beating up the Wellston Royals in order to throw the school into chaos by dismantling the hierarchy. John does all the work, but Cecile's been supporting him ever since the two teamed up.
  • Violently Protective Boyfriend: Should anyone actually manage to hurt Seraphina, John will kick their ass. This is despite the fact that he is weaker than, making up for the power difference through sheer brutality. Taken Up to Eleven when Sera loses her ability. John essentially becomes a supervillain nicknamed "ʎɐpsǝn⊥" that eviscerates anyone that even touches Sera.
  • Walking Spoiler: Discussing things about John is almost impossible to newcomers without giving away that he's only pretending to be a cripple.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: John wanting to destroy Arlo's hierarchy system at Wellston High stems from the fact that said system is flawed since it causes tons of strong-to-weak bullying to occur amongst the students. Unfortunately, it requires for John to beat up the top students, even those who've done nothing wrong to him, to show that no one can stop his plan.

     Seraphina 

Seraphina

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/unordinaryseraphina.jpg
Power Level: 8.0
Superpower: Time Manipulation note 

The female lead, and John's best friend. She's considered to be the strongest student amongst Wellston High's top-10.

Seraphina was once a perfect student that never broke away from being calm and collected in order to serve as a role-model for everyone around her. However, that calmness is one day broken when John enters her life at Wellston, and constantly refuses to go along with her orders. It eventually reaches a point where Seraphina realizes that she can be like John, and go about living her own life rather than following along the path that people expect her to take.


  • Abusive Parents: Seraphina's mother had no qualms about physically assaulting her daughter to force her to start getting in line. She also openly criticizes her other child, whom she deems a disgrace.
  • The Ace: Seraphina effortlessly claims the title.
  • A-Cup Angst: Seraphina is noticeably flummoxed by how large Rein's chest is.
  • A Friend in Need: How John and Seraphina became friends.
  • Almighty Janitor: In terms of official positions in school, her position as "Queen" has been taken up by Remi for activities such as the Turf War. However, it is still acknowledged that she is likely the strongest in school.
  • Affectionate Nickname: John calls her "Sera".
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: How unOrdinary society works in general. Seraphina is at the top of the ladder despite never attending classes because she is so strong (though she was originally a devoted student).
  • Arc Words: “Perfection.”
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Her position as the school's "Ace" lets anyone with half a brain know they will lose a fight with her. Gavin still tries.
  • "Awesome McCool" Name: A seraph is an angel. See also “Meaningful Name”, below.
  • Badass Normal: After being depowered, Sera starts to get self-defense training lessons from John in order to fight and defend for herself as a normal person.
  • Broken Ace: Played with. Before Seraphina met John, she was indisputably the top student in school in abilities, academics and reputation. However, this came with a greater deal of pressure and judgement from her peers. In the present story, Seraphina's peers in Wellston see her as this since she started hanging around with John and no longer caring too much about her grades or reputation. However, Seraphina feels a lot better about herself than she did before.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Seraphina gets stabbed with a syringe by the Van Killers that has some liquid within it that ended up causing her to lose her powers.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Or Calling the mother out. After so long, Seraphina finally calls out on her mothers abuse which allows her to return back to school earlier from her supposed suspension.
  • Challenging the Bully: After being depowered, Sera starts to understand the bullying that goes on amongst the Mid-tiers towards the Low-tiers of Wellston High. She starts to defend Low-tiers against the Mid-tiers under the belief that it's not fair how their only choices is to either get beat up now, or get beat up later.
  • Character Development:
    • Her background goes into great detail on how she used to act as a calm and collected perfect student that worked extra hard to always get perfect grades, but finally began to loosen up after she started interacting with John. Her continued interactions with John also helps her gain respect towards those that fight back against those that are stronger.
    • Being depowered by the Van Killers, and then getting kidnapped and beaten up by fellow mid-tier students, makes it clear to Sera that she took her power and high-status for granted without ever thinking about how it effects those around her. As a result, she considers it karma that she's been treated like shit ever since word got out that she lost her power.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Seraphina vs anyone.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Magenta.
  • Comes Great Responsibility: John has expressed more than once how much he wishes that those with powers would use them to protect the weak, rather than to oppress them. Seraphina, although she finds many of his very against-the-grain ideas to be “absurd”, does make the observation that the onus of change is still on those with power.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Her friendship with John defrosted her from the distant and "perfect" Queen of Wellson to her current, and much happier, self.
  • Deus Exit Machina: Seraphina is suspended from school partway through the story. Most students consider her the strongest in school and one of the reasons why John's bullying hasn't been worse.
  • Do You Trust Me?: Sera starts to catch on in chapter 136 that John's been keeping secrets from her, which leaves her thinking to herself questioning why John doesn't trust her.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Seraphina first appears on the school rooftop while class is in session. Despite her initial teasing, she's shown to be good friends with him and willingly stays with him in the infirmary to pass the time. Finally, she effortlessly defeats the bully who'd been troubling.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Back when she was still considered The Ace, Seraphina wore her hair long and in a ponytail. Now, she has short hair with a messy fringe, yellow tips, and hair extensions. Her mother was not amused when she first saw them.
  • Foil: John and Seraphina are on opposite ends of the power spectrum and in terms of academic ability. Despite their differences in power, it is John who comes off as more independent whereas Seraphina was constrained by the expectations others had of her.
  • Hostage Situation: Illena, Hower and several other students take a depowered Sera captive and tie her up to put her in her place by beating her up.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: To match her Sugar-and-Ice Personality.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She’s a pretty decent person in general, but not exactly friendly or nice, and John is about the only person she's shown much of a soft side around.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Sera views this as something that happened to herself. By remaining ignorant to those around her when she was the school's powerful Ace, karma came back to bite her in the ass when the Wellston mid-tiers she's been ignoring and possibly harming decide to kidnap and beat her up after she's been depowered.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Partially due to her time manipulation.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: To John; when she is suspended from school, John's bullying intensifies and he begins to despise his classmates.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: John actively hides his ability from her.
  • Meaningful Name: A seraph is the highest order of angel. Fitting for a god-tier ability user.
  • Morality Chain: Functions as this to John. When she is suspended, John gradually becomes more violent and spiteful towards his peers due to the increased bullying. Notably, he snaps out of his dark mood the moment she reappears.
  • Not So Different: Despite being on opposite sides of the power spectrum, neither John nor Seraphina seemed to be able to escape judgement and criticism from their peers; John is ostracized because he is considered a cripple, whereas Seraphina is judged because of the expectations everyone has for her. It was partly for this reason that they eventually became friends.
  • Not So Stoic: Usually calm and collected, she snaps when, shortly after their first meeting, John baits her by pretending to hand her the chocolate cake she’d just demanded from him, only to drop it onto the floor. A huge crowd of classmates is there to see her completely and utterly melt down.
  • Odd Friendship: How she became friends with John is this. One would expect that the two to never speak with one another given that they're on opposite ends of the power spectrum. However, John constantly going against what Sera tried to force him to do eventually leads to her gaining respect for him as a weakling that stands up to the strong.
  • Only Friend: To John.
  • The Perils of Being the Best: Was suffering from them until John liberated her mindset with his I-do-what-I-want attitude.
  • Physical God: As a god-tier character.
  • Playing Card Motifs: The Ace. Represents how she is the strongest character in the show.
  • Power Levels: On a scale of 1–10 where being 6+ essentially makes you a Physical God, Seraphina is an 8.0.
  • Shout-Out: She is once seen reading OFR-Ice, one of the author's older webcomics.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Her mother, Narisa, looks basically like an older and more mature version of the current Serephina.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: A few characters have called her cold and distant, she rarely smiles, and her default mood seems to be mild boredom. That said, she does show a gentler side around John.
  • Superpower Lottery: With a power level of 8, the god-tiered Seraphina is leagues above everyone with her ability to manipulate time. This is even more impressive by the fact she was able to quickly deal with Arlo (a fellow god-tier) with little effort.
  • Time Master: Her ability. Seraphina can't travel through time, but she can stop time - allowing her to eliminate entire teams in the blink of an eye - and "rewind" any injury she does manage to receive, restoring her to perfect health... and this is all in addition to Super Strength, Super Reflexes, and Super Toughness. John explicitly compares her to a god.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: In chapter 148, she's had it with Arlo trying to ruin her friendship with John. The moment Arlo tries to inform her that John is actually the Joker that's been beating up other students, Sera of course doesn't believe it, and gets angry. She calls Arlo out for always picking on John despite him always minding his own business, and asks for Arlo to just leave John alone already. In the end, Arlo decides to not push any further since he's finally realized that his actions have done nothing but drive John and Sera further away from him.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Mostly pink with yellow ends. The yellow is dyed.

Wellston Private High School

Top Ranked Students

     Arlo 

Arlo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/unordinaryarlo_7.jpg
Power Level: 6.3
Superpower: Barrier note 

The current "King" of Wellston High who's also the leader of the school's Turf War team, and is considered to be the 3rd strongest amongst the school's top-10. Arlo goes to great lengths to make sure that the school hierarchy remains in perfect order where the higher-tiers, including himself, look down on and abuse the lower-tiers. However, his philosophy to maintain order becomes threatened when the crippled newcomer, John, refuses to go along with the school's system.


  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: In chapter 145, Arlo ends up in this position in an attempt to stop John from destroying Wellston's hierarchy. John rejects his apology, which Arlo asks what he must do to make John stop. However, John rejects it again claiming that Arlo can't do anything at this point.
  • Art Evolution: His appearance in the prologue looks younger, and comes with browner hair, compared to his appearance in later chapters.
  • Ascended Meme: The nickname Remi gives him, Asslo, started off as a joke in the comment section when the readers found out about his plans for John.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority:
    • As the King of Wellston, Arlo makes it quite clear that he's the one in control. The lone exceptions being Seraphina, who has a higher power level than him, and John after Arlo got his butt whopped by him.
    • Basically how Arlo became the King of Wellston. After the previous king, Rei, tried to change Wellston's hierarchy by making everyone equal no matter the power difference, it all went to hell the moment Rei graduated. Students who felt they were being held down by Rei began fighting throughout the school, which led to Arlo restoring the strong-to-weak hierarchy by beating up the fighting students himself.
    • When Arlo first met Blyke and Isen before the start of the series, it was when the two of them were fighting. So in order to calm the two of them down, Arlo steps in and beats both of them up. This pretty much results in Blyke and Isen becoming Arlo's lackeys.
  • Bait the Dog: With more and more evidence appearing that John is faking being a cripple, Arlo goes about controlling all the events surrounding the former until it reaches a breaking point that finally causes John to go all-out with his powers against Arlo.
  • Barrier Warrior: His power is to create barriers that when attacked, damage the attacker. He can also cast out the barrier to basically trap people in a barrier bubble.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For:
    • He wanted to find out John's ability. He did.
    • He ordered John to search for a kidnapped Sera himself instead of always trying to boss Arlo to do it. The result is John going around beating up other students for their abilities to help with his solo search. Even attacking Isen.
  • Berserk Button: He shows genuine anger when John calls him out as a poor excuse for a King.
  • Break the Haughty: He loses a lot of his composure as the top-dog of Wellston following his defeat to John.
  • Character Development:
    • Through his interactions with John, as well as his crushing defeat to him that made it clear that John far outclasses him, Arlo begins to show cracks at keeping Wellston High's established hierarchy order.
    • Arlo finally realizes in chapter 144 that he's the cause of Wellston's hierarchy falling apart for forcing John back into the rankings despite the latter knowing that he's not fit to be at the top. As a result, Arlo decides to seek out John, and actually apologizes to him for everything that happened.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Gold
  • Curbstomp Battle: As befitting someone of his power, Arlo routinely dishes these out.
    • He ends up on the receiving end of one from John when the latter finally decides to go all out with his powers against Arlo.
    • In chapter 129, Illena tries to attack him, but his barrier leaves her right arm a bloody mess.
  • Dissonant Serenity: Arlo looked noticeably calm and undeterred, both when Blyke was getting sliced up by Rein and again when he began brutalizing Rein straight afterwards. This is even more disconcerting when he shows the same expression when John brutalized Meili and Ventus after being provoked into using his ability. The next two chapters has this averted as Arlo shows frustration as he thought back to his loss.
  • The Dreaded: Given that he's "King" of Wellston, the school students are sometimes seen being really afraid of him. Particularly Isen.
  • Establishing Character Moment: His introduction fight against Rein during the Turf War against Agwin High School makes it quite obvious how he acts as the King of Wellston.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Even Arlo finds John's manner of expressing authority to be overkill.
  • Fatal Flaw: His fixation on keeping to the school's established power hierarchy keeps Arlo stuck from ever trying to improve the bullying problems that go on amongst the school's lower tiers, which he finally becomes aware of after a group of Mid-tier students kidnapped and beat up a depowered Sera. John eventually calls him out for it in chapter 132, and threatens to destroy the hierarchy that Arlo is desperately trying to hold on to.
    • Such fixation to keeping to the school's hierarchy mostly stems from the fact that he witnessed Rei's failed attempt to change the school prior to Arlo becoming king. Rei's "everyone is equal" philosophy simply led to more fighting the moment Rei graduated, which Arlo was only able to calm down by restoring the old hierarchy.
  • Foil: Towards John. Arlo works to keep order in Wellston as the King ruling at the top, but ends up having to deal with John constantly going against the school system that Arlo established. Then it's revealed later on that John has the power like Arlo to rule as a King, but unlike Arlo using it to rule against the weak, John chooses to hide his powers in order to act like the weak.
  • Forced to Watch: Basically what John claims that he's going to make Arlo do. He's going to force Arlo to sit back and watch as John goes about dismantling the Wellston hierarchy that Arlo's been desperately trying to hold onto, and there's nothing Arlo can do to stop him. Given that Arlo already lost to John in a fight, he's unable to say anything back, and has to let John walk away.
  • The Heavy: Is the most prominent antagonist person in the story, but is not the true villain.
  • Hypocrite: Down the line, his actions start to go against his original beliefs.
    • Cecile ends up viewing him as one for acting like he desires to keep the strong-to-weak school hierarchy intact, yet he's perfectly fine with replacing her on the school newspaper team with Isen, who's believed to be weaker than her.
    • Illena ends up viewing him as one for defending Sera despite the fact that she's now a depowered cripple, yet he wouldn't do the same for other weaklings that he chooses to ignore. A few chapters later, Sera calls him out on this as well, which Arlo is unable to answer.
  • In-Universe Nickname: Remi ends up calling Arlo as "Asslo" down the line. The nickname itself actually started off as a fan-meme amongst the readers.
  • Jerkass: Arlo tends to manipulate people a lot. He also heavily injured Rein well beyond the point where she could continue battling during the Turf War against Agwin High School. He also doubles as Jerk with a Heart of Gold, as rare as it is. He admires Rei, the former king of Weston high school, and is really close, and cares about Remi.
  • Jerkass Has a Point : When John berates him about letting a depowered Seraphina get hurt even though John ordered him to protect her, Arlo counters by mentioning the obvious fact that due to John being a closer friend to her, and for having a stronger ability than Arlo, it should be John that stands by her side to protect her. Unbeknownst to Arlo, John chooses to remain inactive due to his inhibition to use his power.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: In chapter 148, Arlo comes to realize that he'll be unable to convince Sera that John is the school's masked Joker due to the fact that his actions of picking on John has pushed Sera away to the point of her being really antagonistic towards him. He also figures that even if she was convinced, it still might not be enough to stop John's rampage anyway. As a result, he apologizes to Sera for bothering her, and walks away.
  • Lame Excuse: Whenever Arlo confronts someone about something they did, he usually considers the opposing person's reply to be a lame excuse.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Arlo puts in a huge effort to manipulate and eventually attack John in order to force him to finally show off his true power, which would pinpoint where John fits in the school's power hierarchy. Unfortunately for Arlo, John turns out to have a power much stronger than Arlo's, and is able to defeat Arlo and his lackies, Meili and Ventus, in a 3-on-1 fight. From then on, Arlo is left shaken knowing that John could take Arlo's "King" status away at any time.
  • The Leader: As the King of Wellston, and the leader of the school's Turf War team.
  • Mugging the Monster: He had John attacked to determine his ability. He did not anticipate him being strong enough to defeat him.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: In chapter 144, Arlo finally has the epiphany moment that he was the one that caused Wellston to start to devolve into chaos when he forced John back into the school hierarchy against his will. Arlo also realizes his mistake that he didn't catch on that John already knew he wasn't fit to be the King, yet Arlo forced him back in anyway.
  • No-Sell: Arlo's barriers are completely impenetrable to those with a lower power level than him. Even Seraphina damages herself breaking through it, as well as John, though she healed herself in seconds by rewinding the injury. Additionally, anyone who attacks the barrier appears to have the force the used reflected back on them, hurting them even more, though whenever his barrier breaks Arlo takes damage as well.
  • Not So Different: With John given that they both have the power to be a King.
  • Oh, Crap!: Has this reaction in chapter 132 when John threatens to destroy Wellston's strongest-to-weakest hierarchy system that Arlo is so fixated on sticking to.
  • Order Versus Chaos: The Order to John's Chaos. Arlo goes to great lengths to keep the strong-to-weak hierarchy at Wellston intact. John however wants no part of it given that he's already experienced how bad the system turned out to be at New Bostin, and constantly goes against those in Wellston's established hierarchy.
  • The Plan: He puts together a huge plan involving two of his lackies, Meili and Ventus, to force the crippled John to reveal where he fits in Wellston's hierarchy. His plan can be summed up as getting Sera suspended so that John is no longer protected by his powerful friend, ordering Meili and Ventus to break John's phone to make him feel alone being unable to keep in contact with Sera, and then pretending to befriend John in order to lead him to a location where he, Meili, and Ventus ambush him. In the end, Arlo's plan backfires when it turns out that John is a more powerful god-tier who beats them in a 3-on-1 fight.
  • Playing Card Motifs: The King for obvious reasons.
  • Power Level: 6.3 God-tier.
    • During his second year at Wellston, Arlo was a 5.4 High-tier.
  • Powers Do the Fighting: Stands around and lets his barriers do all the work. He either puts the barrier around himself, or he casts it to trap others within a bubble.
  • The Proud Elite: He takes his role as a high-tier at the top of Wellston quite seriously in order to maintain the status quo of the school's power hierarchy, which is why it bugs the hell out of Arlo that his fellow high-tier classmates, John and Sera, aren't playing out their roles as a part of elite society.
  • Secret Keeper:
    • Arlo finally realizes that John's power is truly much stronger after the latter defeats the former in a fight. From then on, Arlo keeps John's true strength a secret due to the fact that he would lose his status as Wellston High's "King". Over time, other Wellston students learn about Arlo's defeat, such as Elaine, Cecile, Isen, Remi, and Blyke.
    • Due to the Van Killer attack, Arlo started off as one of the few that knew about Sera losing her powers. However, said secret was leaked to the whole school once Juni showed of her article revealing Sera's depowerment to the rest of the students.
  • Ship Tease: With Remi, whom he cares deeply for.
  • Smug Smiler: So many times he is seen sporting one. Especially early on as he acts as the school's King. However, he starts to lose that smugness the more he interacts with John, and especially after John beats his ass.
  • Status Quo Is God: He truly believes in keeping Wellston's hierarchy where one's Power Level decides their status within the school believing it to be the best scenario to keep the school peaceful. He pretty much gives up trying to take on John again after his loss since he believes that John being more powerful than him keeps to the school's status quo. To his surprise, Remi rejects the status quo when Arlo tries to convince her to throw her upcoming fight with John, which she plans not to.
  • The Stool Pigeon: Having been cornered by John to the point of being forced to watch the latter go about dismantling Wellston's hierarchy, Arlo decides to approach Sera in chapter 147 since he knows that Sera is John's only true weakness. Arlo reveals to her that John is the Joker that's been beating up the other students in the hopes that Sera could be the one to finally convince John to stop his rampage.
  • Throwing the Fight: In chapter 146, he asks for Remi to throw her fight with John since he already knows that Remi won't be able to defeat him. Remi however completely rejects the idea.
  • Took a Level in Badass: During his Wellston years before the start of the series, Arlo's ability powered up from 5.4 to 6.3.
  • What the Hell, Hero?:
    • Eventually, Arlo has enough of John constantly pretending to be a cripple despite knowing that he has the power to defend himself, and protect a depowered Sera, from those weaker than him.
    • In chapter 132, he calls out John for why it was necessary to go overboard at beating up Isen just to copy the Hunter power to help John search for Sera. John of course beat him up due to the fact that Isen treated him poorly during the fake interview beforehand.
  • Xanatos Gambit: Subverted during chapters 53 to 55. While Arlo can get John to reveal his true power or a chance to subjugate John and show him who is boss, he underestimates how powerful John is and essentially puts his position as King in danger as he has now earned the enmity of the true strongest male student in the school.
  • You Are Too Late: Basically what he says to Isen in chapter 139 due to Isen warning him about what John did in the past that got him expelled at New Bostin. Arlo replies back to Isen that such information is useless now since the former had already lost to John in a fight.

    Remi 

Remi / X-Rei

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/unordinaryremi.jpg
CLICK for Remi's appearance as X-Rei 
Power Level: 5.4
Superpower: Lightning note 

The current "Queen" of Wellston High, and the 4th strongest amongst the school's top-10. Despite being the school Queen, Remi only holds the position because Seraphina doesn't want it. Remi is also a school Turf War member, and unlike a majority of the Wellston students, Remi is actually one of the nicer ones who doesn't use her powers to abuse the weak.

Remi holds a deep hatred for the EMBER organization due to them killing her brother, Rei, for becoming a Superhero. Her investigations into the organization eventually leads Remi into becoming a Superhero herself, which she goes with the Superhero name, X-Rei, in honor of her fallen brother.


  • Amateur Sleuth: She's quite perceptive for her age. Remi's been keeping up with things on EMBER to find out more about them since the organization killed her brother for becoming a superhero vigilante. She also begins to put together that there might be a connection between EMBER and the authorities since they desire to keep to the current society's status quo where the strong bully the weak.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: In chapter 146, she rejects Arlo's Throwing the Fight suggestion unable to understand why he's perfectly fine with letting John, who she knows at this point is the dangerous masked Joker, rule the school just because Arlo lost to him in a single fight previously. Arlo is unable to answer back.
  • Art Evolution: Her appearance in the first couple chapters had her wearing large blue earrings, which haven't been seen ever since.
  • Character Development: Investigating EMBER motivates Remi into becoming a Superhero.
  • Cheap Costume: Her first Superhero costume as "X-Rei" is basically a standard sweater with an X on it with a earloop mask that she drew a smiley face on.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Pink
  • Curtains Match the Window: Pink-hair with pink-eyes.
  • A Day in the Limelight: She gets a couple Story Arcs that show off her first two missions as a Superhero that goes after Waldo and Alana.
  • Determinator: When Remi sets her mind to accomplish something, she goes to great lengths to get it done.
    • She's greatly determined to bring EMBER to justice for killing her brother, even to the point of going against the warning of her friends to not put herself in danger for the sake of Revenge.
    • Once John starts attacking Wellston's Royals as the masked Joker to go about his plan of bringing down the hierarchy, Remi leads the school investigation alongside Blyke and Isen to stop Joker's rampage. She's so set on defeating Joker that she rejects Arlo's Throwing the Fight suggestion.
  • Fatal Flaw: Arlo considers Remi's determination to stop at nothing until she's accomplished her goal to be this since she tends to take on objectives that put her in massive danger.
    • There is indeed a bit of truth to this given that Remi's Superhero antics almost resulted in her death to Volcan had Isen and Blyke not been there to save her.
    • Then there's Remi's objective to investigate and unmask who Wellston's mysterious Joker is, which Arlo asks her to throw the fight with John since he knows that John will completely overpower and brutalize her. Of course, Remi refuses.
  • Fight Unscene: Her duel with Cecile that resulted in Remi taking Cecile's Queen status is only shown in one brief flashback image. Cecile is on the ground having already been defeated.
  • Foil: To Cecile. Both have experience as Wellston's Queen, and it's clear that Cecile and Remi are not on good terms due to the fact that Cecile lost her Queen status to Remi through a fight the two of them had in the past. Remi also tends to be portrayed as the nice girl while Cecile is shown to be harsh and condescending.
  • Hair Decorations: A part of the back of her hair is tied up in a bow.
  • In-Universe Nickname: Arlo calls her Pinky.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Overall, Remi suffers bad from this due to the bubble that surrounds her amongst the top of the Wellston hierarchy. Outside of her friendship bubble with Arlo, Isen, and Blyke, she knows very little about what is actually going on in the school, such as the bullying that goes on amongst the lower tiers, which leaves her confused as to why Joker/John is going to such lengths to throw the school into chaos by beating up Remi's friends and other fellow students.
    • She catches on that Arlo and Isen have been hiding something from her. These being that John beat the two of them up, and the events that led to Sera being depowered. She finally learns about John doing both of these in chapter 146.
  • Meaningful Name: Her "X-Rei" Superhero name honors her brother.
  • Nice Girl: She is one of the few people who are kind and polite. Even tries to help John at one point.
  • Playing Card Motifs: The Queen for obvious reasons.
  • Power Level: 5.4 High-tier.
  • Put on a Bus: More like the story starts her off on a bus where Remi was away from Wellston for a week because she had to attend her brother's funeral. As a result, Seraphina took her place for the Turf War match against Agwin High School.
  • Revenge: Desires this against EMBER for killing her brother, Rei.
  • Secret Keeper:
    • Sera reveals to her in chapter 92 that she lost her powers. However, the entire school ends up learning about Sera's depowerment several chapters later due to Juni's article.
    • By chapter 146, she ends up learning about John being the Joker that's been terrorizing Wellston due to Blyke being suspicious of John, which he then forced Isen to admit the truth, who already knew. Isen also reveals in this chapter to Remi (and Blyke) that Arlo had already been defeated by John.
  • Shock and Awe: Her ability, "Lightning."
  • Ship Tease: With both Arlo (whom she calls Asslo) and Blyke.
  • Skilled, but Naïve: Despite her investigation skills, Remi seems to remain oblivious to all the bullying that goes on at Wellston. This is mostly a result of the bubble she ended up in amongst the Royals where she knows very little of the outside world beyond her friendships with Arlo, Isen, and Blyke.
  • Superhero: Remi eventually decides to become one to take after her dead brother, and because she feels that no one is taking the threat of EMBER as seriously as her. She goes with the Superhero name, "X-Rei."
  • Token Good Teammate: Implied with Remi. Despite being one of the higher-tier students, she has so far not acted antagonistic towards John compared to her peers, even when John lashes out at her on impulse.
  • Two Guys and a Girl: She's usually seen with Blyke and Isen.
    • When the 3 of them spent some time at the mall, they tried to confront the man at the Gauge Vendor after Remi discovers the tracker inside her teddy bear reward.
    • When Remi decides to become a Superhero, Blyke and Isen are convinced to join her as support.
    • Remi also teams up with Blyke and Isen to investigate and unmask the Joker (John) that's been beating up the Royals at Wellston.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: She's a Nice Girl who seems to believe in Arlo's hierarchy establishing order at Wellston. As a result, she's developed a friendship amongst the school's Royals, such as towards, Arlo, Isen, and Blyke, under the belief that they're having a great time at school together. Unfortunately, her view doesn't extend any further than this bubble, which has left her completely oblivious to all the bullying that goes on at the school amongst the lower tiers. She doesn't even catch on that two of her close friends, Arlo and Isen, have treated the crippled John horribly. Once John starts attacking Royals as the masked Joker out of Revenge, and to push forward his plan of destroying the hierarchy, she finally decides to act against Joker since she's unable to understand why he's targeting the Royals.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Pink-haired
  • X-Ray Vision: She can pull this off to a certain extent if an item is electronic, such as seeing the bugs that have been implanted in the toy bears being offered by the man running the Gauge Vendor at the mall.

    Cecile 

Cecile

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/unordinarycecile.jpg
Power Level: Unknown note 
Superpower: Unknown note 

A Wellston High student who works as the head of the school newspaper, Wellston Weekly, and was the former "Queen" of the school before losing her status to Remi. As the 5th strongest amongst the top-10, Cecile shows off an elitist attitude where she believes that the strong should be held at a higher standard than the weak.


  • Color-Coded Characters: Pine Green.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle:
    • Cecile tries to attack Arlo when he forces her off the newspaper team. It didn't go well for her as she ends up a bloody mess, and is forced to walk away.
    • In chapter 133, Cecile uses her power rope to wrap up Mardin's legs, which causes him to drop head first to the floor.
    • In chapter 143, Cecile ends up on the receiving end of one from John. She's left in a bloody mess lying on the ground unconscious.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: When John laughs at her scared reaction moments after threatening her as the next on his school hit-list, Cecile thinks John was playing a joke with her, and didn't find the threat funny. However, John replies that he wasn't joking since beating up Cecile is needed to continue his plan of destroying Arlo's Wellston hierarchy.
  • Enemy Mine: In an effort to get on the good side of Wellston's true King, Cecile approaches John to inform him that she knows where the bully students stashed Sera after kidnapping her. John controls his anger enough to go along with the plan, which Cecile then leads him to Sera's location. Afterwards, John agrees to team up with her against Arlo despite knowing that Cecile's only sucking up to him to get her elite-status back. Even after John beats her up as part of his plan to destroy the school hierarchy, the two of them appear to still be working together.
  • Fight Unscene: Her duel with Remi that lost her the status as Wellston's Queen is only shown in one brief flashback image. Cecile is on the ground having already been defeated.
  • Foil: To Remi. Both have experience as Wellston's Queen, and it's clear that Cecile and Remi are not on good terms due to the fact that Cecile lost her Queen status to Remi through a fight the two of them had in the past. Remi also tends to be portrayed as the nice girl while Cecile is shown to be harsh and condescending.
  • "I Can't Look!" Gesture: In chapter 148, even she looks the other way when John beats up Isen for trying to spy on John and Cecile's meeting.
  • Jerkass: Acts as such towards Remi for not playing out her correct role as a high-tier. It's implied that Cecile hasn't gotten over the fact that Remi defeated her in the past.
  • Knows the Ropes: Her superpower is creating a powerful rope that she can control to fight people or simply tie them up.
  • The Leader: Plays out such a role for the school's press team.
  • Make-Up Is Evil: While calling her evil is quite overboard, she's still a Jerkass Wellston student that wears green eye shadow.
  • Might Makes Right: She ridicules Remi for not enforcing her demands through force.
  • Oh, Crap!: She has this reaction in chapter 140 when John informs her that she's the next that needs to get beat up after Blyke. She actually goes through this twice since Cecile thinks he was just making a joke at first only for John to tell her that he wasn't kidding.
  • The Plan: To get back at Arlo, who she now views as a hypocrite as a King that replaced her "elite"-self for lower-tiers despite Arlo believing that order by power runs the school, she decides to get back at him by teaming up with John, whom she knows is the school's powerful Shadow King, to possibly dethrone Arlo.
  • Playing Card Motifs: Cecile used to be the "Queen" of Wellston, but ended up losing the status to Remi.
  • The Proud Elite: Compared to other students, Cecile takes her role as one of Wellston's top elites the most seriously. She even calls out Remi for not playing out her role as the school's Queen. This is also why Cecile takes it really hard when Arlo takes away her "elite"-status by replacing her with Isen as the head of the school newspaper.
  • Power Level: It's finally shown in chapter 140 where she's situated amongst the top-10, which is between Remi and Blyke as the #5. While her exact power level isn't confirmed, an educated guess can be made that she's somewhere between Remi's 5.4 and Blyke's 4.5 power levels. Thus, making Cecile an elite or high-tier.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: She calls out Remi for acting too weak to put someone in their place, and as a result, she doesn't have a strong enough will to dominate someone, and force out the information that she wants from Cecile. Cecile also calls out Remi for giving high-tiers a bad name by hanging out with people that are lower-tier than her such as Blyke and Isen, and even tried to help out a cripple (John) at one point.
  • Revenge: Desires this against Arlo after being removed from the school newspaper, and viewing him as a King that's a complete hypocrite.
  • Secret Keeper: She learns from the information that Terrence gathered how John had defeated Arlo, Ventus, and Meili in a fight, and that John is hiding the fact that he's Wellston's true King. However, she's unable to reveal the information due to Arlo keeping a close eye on her since he knows that Terrence has been snooping around.
  • Silly Rabbit, Idealism Is for Kids!: Cecile's point of view to Rei and Remi's idealism.
  • Speak Ill of the Dead: She insults Rei and his beliefs.
  • Undying Loyalty: She is extremely loyal to her newspaper crew to the point of refusing to hand over the name of the anonymous reporter that spied on the fight that involved Remi, Blyke, and Isen at Kovoro Mall. However, the same can't be said when Arlo chose to stop by the press room looking for answers.
  • Villain Team-Up: In a way, John and Cecile play the villain duo that goes about beating up the Wellston Royals in order to throw the school into chaos by dismantling the hierarchy. John does all the work, but Cecile's been supporting him ever since the two teamed up.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Pine Green-haired.

     Blyke 

Blyke

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/unordinaryblyke.jpg
Power Level: 4.5
Superpower: Energy Beam note 

A Fiery Redhead student of Wellston High that is often seen alongside Isen, and is considered to be the "Jack" of the school. Blyke is also a member of the school's Turf War team, and is considered to be the 6th strongest amongst the school's top-10. Eventually, Blyke is forced to become John's roommate after the latter is forced to start living at the school's boy dorm.


  • Art Evolution: His hair was a darker shade of red in the first couple chapters.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: His name is obviously meant to sound like Blake, but instead has the "a" substituted out with a "y."
  • Berserk Button: He tends to get angry towards people who wrong his friends, such as Remi and Isen. As a result, he holds a lot of anger towards John after witnessing him hit Remi away when she was trying to help him, and for lashing out at Isen even though they just helped John up after the cripple got bullied by Zeke.
  • Character Development: Blyke starts to become sympathetic towards low-tiers after witnessing how bad they had it in the Branish District being taken advantage of by Waldo. As a result, he starts trying to get on friendlier terms with John.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Red
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: In chapter 138, Blyke ends up on the receiving end of one from John when the latter begins his plan to dismantle the school hierarchy.
  • Eureka Moment: In chapter 146, Blyke was already starting to suspect that Wellston's masked Joker is John due to how it's too much of a coincidence that Joker having no copied powers makes him a cripple similar to John. However, he admits it's not much to go on just being a Gut Feeling. A moment after, Remi asks if Isen knows anything about this, which suddenly makes it clear to Blyke that Isen had known this whole time that John is the Joker due to Blyke remembering that Isen has been acting oddly around John ever since Isen investigated John's background.
  • Fiery Redhead: His tempter is a bit short.
  • Flipping the Bird:
    • Gives one to Payton the mall security guard behind his back.
    • Gives multiple middle fingers behind John's back after John harshly rejects Blyke's attempt to befriend him.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: Creates beams from his hands that he fires at his enemies.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: During Remi's superhero mission in the Lewes District, Isen starts to get cold feet after realizing that someone killed Alana in cold blood. Blyke tries to snap him out of it since Isen has no time having a nervous breakdown when Remi is currently struggling to defeat Volcan.
  • Gut Feeling: In chapter 146, Blyke reveals to Remi and Isen that he came to suspect John to be Wellston's masked Joker once he thought about how the Joker not being able to copy abilities would make him powerless similar to how John comes off as a cripple. His Gut Feeling was correct.
  • Hand Blast: His Frickin' Laser Beams come from his hands.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's definitely not the most patient or friendliest guy, but you can't say that he doesn't care for Remi and Isen.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: How Blyke's powers tend to appear offensively when he makes the body motion as if one is about to pull off the Kamehameha.
  • Locked Out of the Loop:
    • Blyke becomes increasingly annoyed by Isen always coming to John's defense for some reason he doesn't know. The reason being that Isen knows that John isn't actually a cripple, and fears what will happen if something breaks John to the point of going off on everyone at the school.
    • He tries to reassure John, who Blyke still sees as a cripple, that they will find the masked man that's been beating people up around the school. Unbeknownst to him, John's the one who's been beating people up. Blyke learns of this by chapter 146 from Isen.
  • Long-Range Fighter: Given that his powers is shooting lasers, Blyke can remain at a distance and shoot beams at people from afar. During Remi's superhero missions, he basically played the sniper support role by firing beams down upon Remi's enemies from nearby rooftops.
  • Luminescent Blush: Sports one when he receives praise from Sera for shooing away the students that were bullying her and John.
  • Nitro Boost: Blyke can reverse his Energy Beam to boost himself in the opposite direction that his hands are aiming towards. For example, if he's aiming his two hands forward, the boost would push himself backwards.
  • Oh, Crap!: When he gets caught by Doctor Darren for getting in a fight with Isen.
  • Playing Card Motifs: The Jack for obvious reasons.
  • Poor, Predictable Rock: After the Volcan fight, Blyke starts to get cold feet thinking that he might not be cut out to be Wellston's next King due to his energy beam ability being incredibly predictable compared to what Sera, Arlo, Remi and even Isen can pull off.
  • Power Level: 4.5 Elite-tier.
    • During his first year at Wellston, Blyke was a 3.6 Elite-tier.
  • Secret Keeper: By chapter 146, his recent suspicions along with piecing it together that Isen's been keeping John in check is enough for Blyke to realize that the Joker who's been terrorizing Wellston this whole time is John. Isen also reveals in this chapter to Blyke (and Remi) that Arlo had already been defeated by John.
  • Shout-Out: The way Blyke uses his ability is oddly familiar. There's even a reference later on where Blyke is seen watching Dragon Ball on tv.
  • Smarter Than You Look: Despite Blyke being a hothead, he's actually somewhat intelligent at times. Isen even outright admits that Blyke has good intuition. This is seen particularly when he starts to piece together Joker (John)'s way of fighting, and begins to suspect something about John after seeing how muscular he is despite supposedly being a cripple.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: Blyke holds a huge grudge against John after the latter hits Remi away when she was just trying to help him after he had been bullied by his schoolmates again.
  • Those Two Guys: He typically appears with Isen.
  • Took a Level in Badass:
    • During his Wellston years before the start of the series, Blyke's ability powered up from 3.6 to 4.5.
    • In chapter 145, Blyke is seen practicing firing off Energy Beams from his fingers after witnessing the masked Joker (John) copy his ability, and then defeated Blyke with a 10-finger beam technique during their duel in chapter 138. As of this chapter, Blyke can form up to 3 finger beams.
  • Two Guys and a Girl: He's usually seen with Isen and Remi.
    • When the 3 of them spent some time at the mall, they tried to confront the man at the Gauge Vendor after Remi discovers the tracker inside her teddy bear reward.

    Isen 

Isen

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/unordinaryisen.jpg
Power Level: 4.4
Superpower: Hunter note 

A Intrepid Reporter student of Wellston High that is often seen alongside Blyke, and is considered to be the 7th strongest amongst the school's top-10. He's tasked by Arlo to go about looking into John's past under the belief that the latter is hiding something. However, Isen's entire viewpoint of John changes the moment he discovers what the latter's been hiding.


  • Attack Its Weak Point: One part of his Hunter ability is that he's able to sense the weak points of his target's body, which show up as a target symbol from his point of view.
  • Big Damn Heroes: He rescues Remi at the last second before Volcan lands the killing blow on her.
  • Bound and Gagged: Was bound by Cecile when he was interrogated about what he found on John.
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: He really enjoys bragging about his talents as an information gatherer, and is prone to sharing what he discovers even before he puts them in his articles. His big mouth nearly gets him in trouble when he almost reveals information Arlo asked for on a need-to-know basis. The only known exception to his usually running mouth is secret information that terrifies him, in which case he stays quiet until someone stronger than him forces him to share his discoveries.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Orange
  • Curbstomp Battle: Ends up on the receiving end of one from a black-masked John in chapter 126.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Orange-hair with orange-eyes.
  • Intrepid Reporter: His curious nature, combined with the enhanced senses that his ability grants him, results in this.
  • Flipping the Bird: Directs one at Blyke when Isen gets angry at him.
  • Heroic BSoD: During Remi's superhero mission in the Lewes District, Isen starts to have a nervous breakdown when he realizes that the criminal he marked with his Hunter ability, Alana, suddenly stopped responding, which informs him that someone must have killed her. It's at this point that he realizes that he's gotten involved in something way darker than he can handle. He gets over it in the next chapter knowing that Remi is in danger against Volcan.
  • Jerkass: While not being an outright bully like many of the other students, the way he treats John when Isen pulls the fake interview about cripples on him was still really dickish, and shows that he treats people lower-tiered than him just as bad as anyone else at the school. It even reached a point where Isen decided to break John's wrist.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: His treatment of John during the fake interview makes it clear that Isen doesn't care about those lower tiered than himself, but that still doesn't change that he's good friends with Remi and Blyke.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Turns out that treating John horribly when Isen pulled the fake interview stunt on him came back to bite Isen in the ass hard when John decides to beat his ass in chapter 126. John even informs Arlo in chapter 132 that Isen treating him horribly during the interview is why he deserved the beatdown.
  • Living Lie Detector: His Hunter ability allows him to mark a person's heart in order to check if it's beating irregularly.
  • Nervous Wreck: He ends up becoming this due to secrets he discovered amongst the school's top students.
    • Upon discovering that John is actually a powerful god-tier, Isen becomes incredibly nervous to his surroundings to make sure that John is left alone so that he can continue pretending to be a cripple rather than piss John off to the point of him breaking, and going on a warpath against everyone that's been bullying him at Wellston High. Isen's fear of not wanting to set John off has resulted in him coming to the latter's defense several times, much to the confusion of Blyke and other students around him.
    • Even after John beat him up in chapter 126, he still refuses to spill the beans when Remi and Blyke check up on him in the infirmary due to the fact that Arlo and John were watching him, and fearing what the two of them would do to him if he revealed the truth.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • When he gets caught by Doctor Darren for getting in a fight with Blyke.
    • When he learns John was expelled from New Bostin after beating up half his year, he abandons the investigation.
    • In chapter 148, he has this reaction when Cecile captures him with her rope power through a wall thanks to John sensing Isen.
  • Power Level: 4.4 Elite-tier.
    • During his first year at Wellston, Isen was a 3.6 Elite-tier.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: He discovers what John is truly capable of after investigating into his background, and learns that John actually has a god-tier power level. Isen decides from then on that pissing off John will not be good for everyone around him, which results in him bailing on the investigation. This being said, John doesn't know about it, leaving him angry and confused whenever Isen comes to his defense.
  • The Smart Guy: He's proven himself to be one of the more intelligent students at Wellston High, especially since Isen has the knowledge to hack deep into the computer system to retrieve information he's seeking. After investigating into John, he's smart enough to know full well that John is not someone that will go along with the school's ranking system given how he beat up his former class at New Bostin. As a result, Isen knows that it's best to just let John remain as a guy pretending to be a cripple.
  • Smug Snake: Acts as such when he tries to investigate John about his past by pretending that he's doing a report about cripples.
  • Super Strength: His ability grants his enhanced strength in certain situations.
  • Took a Level in Badass: During his Wellston years before the start of the series, Isen's ability powered up from 3.6 to 4.4.
  • Those Two Guys: He typically appears with Blyke.
  • Two Guys and a Girl: He's usually seen with Remi and Blyke.
    • When the 3 of them spent some time at the mall, they tried to confront the man at the Gauge Vendor after Remi discovers the tracker inside her teddy bear reward.
    • Along with Blyke, Isen joins in on supporting Remi on her superhero missions.
    • Isen also teams up with Remi and Blyke to investigate and unmask the Joker (John) that's been beating up the Royals at Wellston. Unbeknownst to them, Isen already knows, but he finally reveals the secret about John to Remi and Blyke in chapter 146.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Arlo given that Isen's reporting is usually how Arlo receives information around Wellston High. Even when John starts to beat up everyone at Wellston, Isen still falls back on Arlo hoping that the latter has a plan to deal with John before the school goes to hell if John ends up becoming the school's new King.
  • X-Ray Vision: Isen's ability, Hunter, allows him to do this sometimes, such as sensing people through walls, or checking a man's heartbeat to see if they're lying or not.

  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Believed to be one of the stronger students, Zeke goes around acting as the "King" of Wellston's boy dorm. When John first arrives at the boy's dorm, Zeke beats him up in an attempt to put the cripple in his place.
  • Berserk Button: He doesn't take kindly to John sarcastically calling him King, which causes Zeke to realize that John isn't taking his rule over the dorm seriously, or when John starts calling him out for being such an insecure student that will never amount to anything, because he goes around acting like the dorm King just to beat up on low-tiers.
  • The Bully: Decides to attack John after the latter is forced by the Headmaster to become part of Wellston's boy dorm.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Sky Blue.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle:

  • Jerkass: Like many of the school bullies, Zeke attacks John for being a cripple claiming that it's his way of "welcoming" the latter to the boy's dorm.
  • The Leader: Claims he's the "King" of the boy's dorm.
  • Power Level: 4.2 Elite-tier.

    • Being looked down on and treated like shit by the higher-tiers enrages Illena to the point that she will gladly beat up those weaker to make it clear that she's stronger.
    • She outright explodes in anger when Arlo berates her for treating Sera like shit despite viewing Arlo as a Hypocrite who continues to treat those weaker than him like shit if he's not already friends with them.

    • Provides one to a depowered Sera after she and several other students have kidnapped her.

  • The Resenter: Illena resents the higher-tiers that rule the school for forcing her into a shadow that she wants no part of where she must worship and suffer under their rule. This causes Illena to do the same to people who are lower-tiered than her.

  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Juni receives a brutal one from a paper-bag disguised John where he beats Juni down to an unconscious bloody mess out of Revenge for bullying and exposing a depowered Sera.

  • Jerkass: Actually throws a rock at Sera just to prove if the latter truly lost her powers or not. The plan worked, which confirms it to her that Sera is powerless. Just to rub things in further, she pushes Sera down a flight of stairs, and then takes a picture of Sera to put in her article just to show the world that Sera is no longer the powerful Queen of Wellston.
  • Please, I Will Do Anything!: Basically what she resorts to asking in a last ditch attempt to try to convince a black-masked John to stop beating her up (not knowing that John's attacking her for putting up the report about a depowered Sera). It doesn't work as John finishes beating her down to the point of unconsciousness anyway.
  • Power Level: 2.5 Mid-tier.

  • Secret Keeper: Juni knows for a fact that Sera is now powerless, and goes about trying to inform everyone in the school about it. The plan works right away as Krolik, Crail, and Skrev are amongst the first students to outright attack Sera under the belief that she's now a cripple.
  • Seers: Juni's Flash Forward ability allows her to see glimpses of the near future in order to know what path to take.

  • Curtains Match the Window: Dark Pink-hair with dark-pink eyes.

She's also a genuine friend to Roland, a fellow weak Wellston student.

Other Students

    Terrence 

Terrence

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/unordinaryterrence_4.jpg
Power Level: Unknown
Superpower: Invisibility note 

A Wellston High student who uses his Invisibility skill to snoop around for information that can be put in the school newspaper. Due to a couple oddities throughout the story that are connected to him, Terrence may turn out to be more than he seems...


  • Color-Coded Characters: Tan.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Terrence appears near the start of the series as the boy that Gavin was bullying before John stepped in to defend him.
  • Exact Eavesdropping: His invisibility superpower allows for Terrence to remain near people unnoticed in order to overhear what they're talking about.
  • Intrepid Reporter: Works as a reporter by going out and searching for information that can be put in his articles for the school newspaper.
  • Invisibility: He can turn himself invisible.
  • The Nicknamer: He labels John as the "Shadow King" after discovering what he's truly capable of.
  • Out of Focus: Arlo catches on that someone has been eavesdropping on his private conversations at Wellston, which he intimidates Cecile into giving up Terrence's name in chapter 82. However, this plotline surrounding Terrence has been sidelined ever since.
  • Power Level: Given that he was being bullied by Gavin, and seems to be ok with hanging out with other Low-tiers such as Evie and Roland, it's implied heavily that Terrence is also a weak Low-tier, which would put him somewhere in the 1-1.9 range.
  • Secret Keeper: Due to snooping around with his Invisibility skill, it's very easy for Terrence to pick up on secrets amongst his fellow students.
    • He learns about what John is truly capable of after spying on the conversation between Arlo and Elaine. Terrence overhears from Elaine that John won in a fight against Arlo, Ventus, and Meili, which Terrence puts in a school news report for Cecile to see.
  • Snooping Little Kid: While remaining invisible, Terrence snoops around school, and follows around others outside of school, as his way of gathering up information for the school newspaper. Terrence was the anonymous reporter that spied on the Kovoro Mall fight that involved Remi, Blyke, and Isen.
  • Visible Invisibility: The author sometimes portrays Terrence as this in order to show the readers when his Invisibility power is active.
  • Wild Card: His ongoing subplot makes it clear that there's more to Terrence than just being a Wellston student working for the school newspaper. Given the possibility that he may of been the invisible partner that helped the guy running the Ability Gauge Vendor at the mall escape the Remi/Isen/Blyke team, Terrence's role could very well change the direction of the story for better or worse.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/unordinarytealhairedgirl_3.jpg

A Wellston High student that bullies other students. She's had several encounters with Sera.

  • The Bully: Her first appearance shows her with Brea trying to bully John.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Teal.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle:
    • In one quick unsuspecting move, her head gets smashed into the wall by Sera.
    • Misa later provides one to a depowered Sera with one push of her power after Illena had already weakened Sera to a point of her struggling to stand up.
    • In chapter 130, she ends up getting curb-stomped by a black-masked John out of revenge for kidnapping and beating down Sera. When he advances on her, she uses her ability once, only for her attack to be redirected. She goes down in two attacks.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: She only wanted to rough up Sera somewhat for their first encounter. Kidnapping and tying up a depowered Sera was seen as too overboard for her, and she even calls out Illena for it. This doesn't explain why she returned the day after.
  • Gang of Bullies: Along with Illena, Krolik, Wenqi, Crail and Hower, she's amongst the gang of students that decide to kidnap a depowered Sera and beat her up.
  • Hypocrite: Wenqi calls her out as one for originally going along with the plan to kidnap and beat up a depowered Sera and returning the next day, yet Misa still chooses to blame Illena for taking things too far.
  • Jerkass:
    • Bullies other students like everyone else at Wellston High.
    • She joined in on beating up a depowered Sera when many other students decide to take her captive and beat her down.
  • Never My Fault: She'll say nasty things about other people and beat up anyone who tries to call her out on this. If reprimanded by someone much stronger than her, she'll pretend to be sorry, but she'll harbor a grudge as if she'd been unfairly slighted.
    • She'll even do this to the people with whom she partakes in cruel acts with. Don't expect her to try to put a stop to whatever they're doing
  • OhCrap:
    • She has this reaction when Seraphina calls her out on both attacking John and talking shit on the Ace's less-than perfect grades.
    • Reacts like this once again in chapter 129 when the Arlo/Elaine duo confront them about kidnapping a depowered Sera.
    • It gets worse when a black-masked John arrives and begins effortlessly taking out her companions. As the second-to-last to be dealt with, she's reduced to begging for mercy in terror.
  • Revenge: She makes it clear to a depowered Sera that the reason she joined in on kidnapping her and beating her up was out of revenge for their previous encounter where Sera smashes her head into the wall for trying to bully John.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Teal-haired.

  • Jerkass: Otis seems to share some of the bullying students views of looking down on the weak since he appears annoyed that a cripple (John) stumbled upon Cecile while she's recovering in the infirmary.
  • No Name Given: After going unnamed in his first few appearances, his name is finally shown in chapter 143.
  • Number Two: Appears to be as such for Cecile since Otis is usually seen at her side, and seems to be her main informant for her work on the school newspaper.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/unordinaryvolcan.jpg
Power Level: Unknown
Superpower: Unknown note 

A mysterious woman who appears in the Lewes District during Remi's superhero mission to take out Alana. Volcan appears to be the provider of the injection substance that's been buffing up criminals who've been taking advantage of low-tiers.


  • Absurdly Sharp Claws: A part of Volcan's power is to turn her hands into razor sharp claws that can cut people's flesh.
  • Coat, Hat, Mask: Her attire fits the bill. Black coat, black hat, and a black mask that covers her mouth.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Yellow Green.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Yellow-hair with yellow-eyes.
  • Dark Action Girl: Unlike Waldo and Alana, Volcan actually puts up a good fight against Remi to the point of Blyke and Isen needing to step in to rescue Remi and retreat. Unlike other characters, she's also seen using multiple powers combining sharp claws with fire.
  • Disappointed in You:
    • Volcan actually states her disappointment to Alana before finishing her off.
    • During her fight with Remi, Volcan shows disappointment again by calling out Remi as someone who despite still being a young girl with a lot of future potential, she chose to waste it by going down the superhero route.
  • Establishing Character Moment: As an introduction, Volcan fatally stabs Alana in the chest to show that she's a cold-blooded killer.
  • Evil Wears Black: She's a confirmed killer who wears all black clothing.
  • Hero Killer: From Remi's point of view. Remi pieces it together remembering the injuries of her dead brother that it must have been Volcan who killed him.
  • Playing with Fire: Along with her Absurdly Sharp Claws, Volcan can activate fire on said claws to try to burn her enemies.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Once she sees that Alana is a disappointment for losing to Remi, Volcan kills her.

  • Color-Coded Characters: Light Purple.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Leilah's first appearance is in a photo she took alongside Sera. Said photo appears in a flashback in chapter 128.
  • The Ghost: Never seen (until her picture cameo in chapter 128), but is constantly referenced having run away from the family, and is apparently Doctor Darren's girlfriend. Leilah finally appears in person for her date with Darren in chapter 141.
  • Ms. Fanservice: To impress her boyfriend, Leilah sends a beautiful looking swimsuit picture of herself at the beach to Darren's phone.
  • Nice Hat: Shown wearing a beach hat in the swimsuit photo she sends to Darren.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: If not for her hair being a different color, you could probably tell right away that Leilah's from the same family as Sera and Narisa. Especially since she shares Narisa's green eyes, and has the same long unkempt hair-style as Sera.

  • The Jeeves: Basically what her role is in Seraphina's home. She tries to make sure that Seraphina remains occupied with her book work to remain a perfect student that can one day land a good job while also warning Narisa of any oddities that possibly keeps Seraphina away from studying. She's also sharply dressed like a butler.
  • No Name Given: Was never given a name until chapter 81.

Other Characters

     Vigilantes 

Rei / X-Static

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/unordinaryrei.jpg
Power Level: 5.8
Superpower: Lightning note 

Remi's deceased older brother and the previous "King" of Wellston. Rei became the vigilante, X-Static, after graduating, but was killed by EMBER.


  • Fatal Flaw: Despite his good intentions at Wellston trying to change the strong-to-weak hierarchy by making all the students feel equal despite their different power levels, he couldn't control how envious it made the top-tier students feel being forced to get along with the lower-tiers. As a result, fighting amongst the students broke out the moment Rei graduated, and only settled down again once Arlo stepped in to restore the hierarchy.
  • Nice Guy: He treated everyone equally, no matter their power.
  • Posthumous Character: He's only characterized in flashbacks.
  • Plot-Triggering Death: His death at the hands of EMBER sets off the plot by dragging Remi to his funeral, which in turn causes Arlo to seek out Seraphina as her replacement, which then causes Arlo to investigate John after Seraphina's change in behavior can be attributed to him.
  • Power Level: 5.8 High-tier.
  • Shock and Awe: He had the same Lightning ability as his sister, but in a stronger form.
  • Superhero: He became the Superhero known as "X-Static."
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Green-haired.

Power Level: 1.0
Superpower: None

John's father who works as an author. Doe was the writer of the highly controversial UnOrdinary book that left a great impact on the world, and has since been banned from being read amongst the public.


  • Good Parents: When he's unable to contact his son, he immediately goes to check on his welfare.
    • He also is supportive, but willing to call John out on his bad decisions.
  • Plot Device: The UnOrdinary book written by him inspired many high-tiers to become self-styled superheroes. It's also a precious item to John that helped him come to terms with how he should go about using his powers.
  • Power Level: 1.0 Low-tier. He's considered a powerless cripple.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: He looks just like an older and more mature version of John. They basically share the same cripple-hair look.

    The Authorities

Power Level: Unknown
Superpower: Unknown note 

An authority worker who interrogates Seraphina about her possession of the banned UnOrdinary book. Keon claims himself to be the one who "fixed" John in the past.


  • Break the Badass: Keon was the authority member who found John's mental weakness following the New Bostin incident, and exploited it to the point of making the boy go on with his life pretending to be a cripple.
  • Break Them by Talking: He proves himself to be a capable interrogator for the authorities having found a way to break John mentally so that he doesn't use his god-tier powers. He also manages to get Seraphina to spill that she got the UnOrdinary book from John, and that she agrees to the book's philosophy.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Blush Red.
  • Hypocrite Has a Point: While his methods may be not the most humane, he was still right when he called out John on being needlessly violent during his reign over New Bostin.
  • Knight of Cerebus: His arrival causes the departure of the series from the previously firm status quo.
  • Mind Rape: His power lets him force his victims to remember their most painful experiences.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: As a member of the authorities, he's always seen wearing office clothing.
  • Suddenly SHOUTING!: While Keon's usually seen to be a calm person, he tends to explode in anger when he discovers people who've been reading the UnOrdinary book. Headmaster Vaughn called him out both times he noticed this.
