The Rave Master manga and anime series features an extensive cast of characters created by Hiro Mashima. The series takes place in a fictional universe that exists as a parallel world where vast numbers of humans as well as species known as sentenoids and demonoids fight using weapons, magic and evil artifacts known as Dark Bring (Shadow Stone in the anime's English dub). One of the most primary users of the artifact known as Dark Bring is an evil terrorist organization known as Demon Card (Shadow Guard in the anime's English dub) which plans to use it to take over the world and bring it into darkness.
The main character Haru Glory, is chosen by the holy artifact known as Rave to wield the Ten Powers and go on a quest with the strange dog like creature known as Plue to find the other four remaining Rave stones and put an end to the usage of Dark Bring and bring peace to the world. In his travel, fate brings him to ally himself with a girl that lost her memories and believes she is named Elie and is unaware that she has a strong involvement with the Rave stones. Together on their quest, they gain allies known as the Rave Warriors which consist of the thief that can manipulate silver known as Hamrio Musica, a cartographer which is the strange blue creature known as Griffon Kato, Let Dahaka and Julia who are both martial artists and members of a species from the mystic realm known as the Dragon Race, Ruby, a rich penguin-like sentenoid, and Belnika, a kind sorceress.
Creation and designEdit
This section needs expansion. You can help by adding to it. (April 2013)
When making the series Mashima wants to make justice prevail but also make readers understand the villains' reasons to fight the main character in order to make them more complex characters.
The main characters are known as the Rave Warriors.
Haru Glory (ハル・グローリー Haru Gurōrī) is the main protagonist of the series and the current Rave Master, never giving up in a fight and willing to protect others in spite of the circumstances. Born on Garage Island, Haru was left in the care of his older sister after their mother died some time after their father left to find the Rave Stones. By chance, Haru fished Plue out of the ocean and met the previous Rave Master Shiba, who realizes the youth to be his successor. After realizing the threat that the Demon Card organization pose to the world, Haru promises Shiba that he will find the Rave Stone and stop the Demon Card's evil with Plue by his side. Along the way, he is joined by allies, each having their own goals, yet they were bound together thanks to him and helping each other along the way. He is very friendly and has a lot of energy. He is very protective of Elie, and does anything he can to ensure her safety. Haru also shows to develop a romantic interest in Elie progressively throughout the series, as it also becomes apparent in later chapters that among Haru's greatest motivations to keep fighting onward is in fact for Elie. At the end of the manga, they marry and then had a son.
As the Rave Master, Haru carries a special sword called the Ten Commandments or TCM, (or the Ten Powers in the English dub) that can change from its Eisenmeteor form to nine other forms once the Rave Stones are embedded into it. During the finale, it was found that Haru cannot use the last sword because the sword was originally forged for Shiba. This encourages Musica to forge Haru his own sword, where it becomes the tenth sword called Ravelt, and it later becomes the default form. His old sword was destroyed by Galein Musica to test the new sword.
Elie (エリー Erī) is a mysterious girl with amnesia. She has lost her memories but does not know how. She is very lively, bubbly, and optimistic. Her usual outfit is a tight fitting midriff top and a mini denim skirt. She uses tonfa-blasters as her weapon of choice. She has a hot temper and an undying love for casinos and always drags the group to the casino when there is one. Elie got her name from the tattoo that she had on her left arm. She ends up joining them after Haru saves her from Georco. She bears a marked resemblance to Resha Valentine, a girl with the power of Etherion, who supposedly gave her life to create the Rave. Elie has the ability to use Etherion as well. Later on, she finds out she is Resha Valentine (リーシャ・バレンタイン Rīsha Barentain). Resha Valentine did not die 50 years ago, but she changed her identity to Elie. Later in the manga, Elie starts to develop romantic feelings for Haru, just as Haru does for her; this led to them getting married and the birth of their son at the end of the series. In the anime, she is voiced by Ayako Kawasumi in Japanese and Michelle Ruff in English. Elie was ranked as #20 in a survey conducted by Newtype Japan for Favorite Anime Heroine in 2002.
Elie is very popular and well loved by almost every character in the anime, even by some of the villains. Haru often puts her safety above anyone else's, and is even willing to risk the safety of the rest of the world for her survival.
Despite his strange appearance, resembling a shivering snowman with a carrot nose despite being called a dog, Plue (プルー Purū) is the Rave Bearer and is able to sense the presence of the other Rave Stones. Plue's nose also has the ability to destroy Dark Bring. Plue is quite fond of sweets, especially lollipops, yet hates pudding. He also likes wine, and spiders. He has the ability to use the Rave of Combat, which powers himself and Haru up. It is a running gag in the manga that no one is entirely sure what Plue is or even his gender. Most people think of him as a dinosaur, while Elie refers to him as a bug. Haru first names him "Sabutaro" which Let prefers to call him.
In the Fairy Tail series, Plue is revised as a Nikora (ニコラ Nikora) celestial spirit who serves as a pet for Lucy Heartfilia but prefers to be summoned on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. In chapter 71 of Fairy Tail, Happy pulls a prank on Lucy by speaking as if he were Plue. He says he is a servant of a great hero with a sacred stone, referring to Haru. Plue has appeared in other works. In chapter 22 of Air Gear, Ikki pretends to be Plue, even growing the nose. In Pastel, Mugi gives Yuu a Plue doll.
Hamrio Musica (ハムリオ・ムジカ Hamurio Mujika, Hedara Musica in the anime's English dub) is the leader of a band of thieves named Silver-Rhythm. Being a "Silver-Claimer", he can manipulate silver into any form and weapon he wants it to be, making him a weapon master. He uses the silver skull around his neck to manipulate silver to a weapon of his choice. The silver skull is fused with Reina's bracelet after she dies and there he gains the weapon "Silver Ray". He is Haru's good and strongest friend. He later forges Haru the holy sword "Ravelt", derived from "Rave" and "Welt", the German word for world.
When he was young, Musica's family was wiped out by Lance the "Beast Sword" of Demon Card with a sword forged by his grandfather, Galein Musica. He was then taken in by Rize, a silver-claimer, who raised him and taught him the ways of silver-claiming. On Rize's deathbed, he asked Musica to find Silver Ray and destroy it, to which Musica agreed. Musica later discovered that the Oni Fortress River Saly was in fact the Silver Ray in disguise. After a battle with the oni leader Ogre, he managed to destroy the Silver Ray with the help of Reina. The weapon was then reborn as an artifact, which Reina called "The Ocean-Rending spear, Silver Ray". Musica now carries both the Silver Ray and Reina's silver, as they have fused with his own. In the anime, he is voiced by Showtaro Morikubo in Japanese and Doug Erholtz in English
Griffon Kato (グリフォン 加藤 Gurifon Katō), more commonly called Griff (グリフ Gurifu) for short, is a strange small blue creature who mostly praises Plue and calls him 'Master Plue'. Griff has limited shape-shifting abilities, such as inflating portions of his body and elongating his limbs. He is also a voyeuristic character and can be often seen spying on Elie. He is the cartographer of the group. He has a strange horse-like creature named Tanchimo (タンチモ) which he rides and is always seen constantly moving its head side to side in a rapid form.
A Griff-like character and a female Griff-like character can be seen in Fairy Tail Chapter 1, page 20 and Chapter 102, page 02. In the anime, he is voiced by Katsuya Shiga in Japanese and Tom Kenny in English.
Let Dahaka (レット・ダハーカ Retto Dahāka) is a DragonRace, a race of dragon people who reside in the Mystic Realm. When Let was first introduced, he was an evil warrior who worked for Demon Card as a guardian for King. He only wanted to fight until Haru defeated him and showed him the path of justice. His initial appearance in the story is of a human with a lizard like face. In the fight against Jegan, he performs Dragon trial and takes the appearance of a human. Soon after, he joined Haru in hope of bringing peace to the world. He uses Dragon Roar of the Gods to defeat Jegan, which consumes one's life in return for the power. He manages to defeat Jegan and turn Julia back to normal using a potion given by Alice. He is saved by Julia who kisses him with the potion in her mouth. In chapter 281, he is revealed to be the king of the DragonRace, King Javaa (ジャヴァ Java). During the fight against the Demon Card member Uta, Let turns into this form in order to kill him, but he dies in the process. He is revived by the Memories of the Star at the end. In the anime, he is voiced by Takehiro Murozono in Japanese and Doug Stone in English.
Ruby (ルビー Rubī) is a pink penguin sentinoid who owns a massive floating casino. Ruby likes to use his wealth to buy rare treasures. When he learns Doryu is using his cash for evil ends, he is almost killed by Doryu, but Haru saves him, and he decides to join his side. He is the only person to know who would be the third Rave Master if Haru dies. Ruby also has a tendency to blab out plans that the Rave Warriors have decided on during battle, making them entirely useless. He recently learned how to use "Wind" magic from the bell given to him by his father, Pearl (パール Pāru). The bell was actually named "the Holy Bell" and it was a weapon used by Dalmatian of the Knights of the Blue Sky. It can turn into a magic sword, and use "Magic Reflection", "Twister", and "Air Ball" (from the videogame). In Chapter 75 the characters of Fairy Tail go to casino owned by Ruby. In the anime, he is voiced by Yukiji in Japanese and Bob Glouberman in English.
Julia (ジュリア Juria) is Let's girlfriend, somewhat of a feisty one who's loud, rowdy, and not above beating people up to get her way, which is a polar opposite to the cool and calm Let. Initially in the story Julia is shown to have become a dragon as she had failed to pass the dragon trial. Julia is saved by Let and turned back to normal using a potion given by Alice. She can usually be found at a bar. A sisterly figure to Haru's party. She was first thought to be a kind and shy girl in Let's flashbacks. Her appearance gradually changing since her debut after Let saved her, from having a short hair to long wavy hair. She is voiced by Kyoko Namikawa in Japanese.
Belnika (ベルニカ Berunika) is a kind girl and has a personality very similar to Elie only much more shy. She was experimented on so that she could have magical powers. They tried to give her the power of Etherion, so that she could help Hardner in his plan to merge with Endless. They kept the truth from Belnika, telling her she would be helping the world. After discovering Hardner's true intentions, she sides with Haru. However, as it turns out, Belnika never attained the power of Etherion, although she does possess a large amount of magical power. She has the power to heal and also to negate any magic around her. She heals Haru's arm which was in a bad condition due to the effects of Sacrifar. She also seems to have some feelings for Haru although she does not show it much. Musica seems to be constantly flirting with her, however their advances are often interrupted by another character's intrusion. She later dies from over use of magic during the fight against the Demon Card member, Jiero. She eventually comes back to life due to the Memories of the Star.
Sieg Hart (ジークハルト Jīku Haruto) is a Defender of Time from Mildea and an elemental master, he was originally out to kill Elie, but eventually helped Haru occasionally on his quest after realizing that Elie needed to be saved. He was originally working with Demon Card (he was plotting to kill the King) but left after trying to kill Elie. Eventually, he becomes an ally to the heroes, and helps uncover Elie's memories, at the cost of his life.
Sieg Hart is revealed to be 27 years old in Hiro Mashima's one-shot manga Mashimaen. Sieg Hart's main move is lightning. His name is also mistakenly translated as 'Jaker' in some versions.
Niebel (ニーベル Nīberu) is a young mage from the village of Mildian who idolizes Sieghart. He eventually goes to rescue Sieghart from prison after he is accused of treason. While his specialty is illusion magic, as Sieghart says, Niebel has the most potential of any sorcerer he's ever seen, enough to become the most powerful ever. This theoretical power is shown during the battle against Jiero when he uses a spell that gives him unlimited magical power, but rapidly ages him into death. This stalls Jiero long enough for Julia to kill her, but this results in his death from old age. He is eventually revived by the Memories in the Star.

Shuda (シュダ) is the first member of Demon Card's Oracion Six to be introduced. He fought and lost to Haru Glory twice in the beginning of the series, and after his second defeat, he reforms and becomes an ally of Haru and his friends. He holds the utmost respect for Gale Glory. He uses the high six star Dark Bring Ballettänzer Zeffrea, which allows him to cause an explosion within a spherical targeting grid that manifests over a chosen point in space. He also wields two swords: the ghost sword Entenka (which spews forth flames by cutting the wind), and the divine sword Heavenly Blossom, which is claimed to be a weapon of the gods. Shuda also is revealed to have a relationship with Haru's sister.

Shiba Roses (シバ・ローゼス Shiba Rōzesu) is the first Rave Master. He acknowledged Haru as the second Rave Master when Rave chose Haru and tasked Haru with the responsibility of bringing peace to the world by gathering all the Raves. In his battle to against Haru in his final test to prove if he is a worthy Rave Master, Shiba was given an elixir so he could revert to his younger self to when he was the Rave Master himself. Only being able to sustain his younger body for 15 minutes, Shiba fought knowing that if he drank the elixir, he would die. Shiba, however, died happy in Elie's arms having recognized her as Resha, his "lost" and only love. In the battle, Shiba said that he has devoted himself for the world for over 50 years which much to Haru amazement who has only become the Rave Master for 2 years. In his time as Rave Master, he is known as the Sword Saint for his mastery of the sword. He is the original wielder and true master of the TCM, hence he could use all ten swords, including the self-harming ninth sword without succumbing to it and original tenth sword Star Raver, while Haru could not even master the ninth and needed a new sword as his tenth sword.
Knights of the Blue SkyEdit
The Knights of the Blue Sky (蒼天四戦士 Sōten Yosenshi) are the four strongest fighters of Symphonia that assisted Shiba during the war and died. Later they became the Guardians of the Rave stones. Deerhound (ディアハウンド Diahaundo) is a huge brute of a warrior who seems to laugh at everything and uses a giant battle axe. After his death he transformed into a bear, guarding the Rave of Knowledge and the graveyard of the warriors who fought for Symphonia. Clea Maltese (クレア・マルチーズ Kurea Maruchīsu) is a dark-skinned female warrior who uses two giant knives. After death her soul was joined with an eagle and became the guardian of the Rave of Combat. Master Dalmatian (ダルメシアン Darumeshian) is a master tactician who is almost always seen smoking a pipe. After death he borrowed the body of a walrus and became the guardian of the Rave of Destiny. He was also the original owner of the sword Holy Bell which is owned by Ruby in the present. Alpine Spaniel (アルパイン・スパニエル Arupain Supanieru) is the leader of the Knights of the Blue Sky and the only one of the four who survived the war and Overdrive. He was the one that kept the other knights' souls in the borrowed bodies of animals. He guards the Rave of Truth and was the steward for Haru's final test to be the true Rave Master. He is also the most charismatic and strongest of the four and his weapon of choice is a spear. All four of the knights surnames seems to be inspired by dog breeds.
The Oracion Six (
Haja (ハジャ) is the de facto leader of the Oracion Six and one of its most powerful members (second only to Berial, according to the author). He is one of the top mages in the world, second only perhaps to his master Shakuma (the world's greatest mage). His overwhelming might is primarily attributed to his ability to generate limitless quantities of mana, which gained him the title of "Haja the Infinite"; while this was seemingly a natural ability at first, it was later revealed to be derived from a Dark Bring implanted within him. Like the archmage Sieghart, he hails from the town of Mildea, the city of time. He was initially depicted as being one of Demon Card's most loyal members, but later events would later reveal him to be a highly devious and ambitious individual, who plotted to have the most powerful forces for both good AND evil eliminated and coveted ultimate power to achieve control over the entire world and all of time. To that end, he returned to his hometown of Mildea to acquire the great power that dwelled beneath it, super magic Cronus, but was opposed and inevitably killed by Sieg, who was aided by the Mildeans. It was revealed afterwards that Haja carried within him the essence of the Demon Card scientist Igor Kilkila, who was released after Haja was killed (Igor was subsequently defeated and imprisoned by Sieg and the Mildeans).
Reina (レイナ) is a Silver Claimer, like Musica. She became a member of Demon Card and the Oracion Six to avenge the injustice done to her deceased father, as well as to find the silver ship Silver Ray (her father's greatest work), whose theft her father was unjustly accused of. She has an issue with Musica, as his mentor Rize is who Reina believes to be the true culprit behind the theft of the Silver Ray, and hence is privy to its location. She uses the Six Star Dark Bring White Kiss, which she uses to create silver out of thin air, which she then manipulates to create silver weapons. In the battle against Ogre she teams up with Musica to defeat him. In this battle they use the Silver Bonds to defeat Ogre. She liked Musica and told him how she felt before destroying the Silver Ray. At the last moment, Reina pushed Musica off the Silver Ray and used Silver Bonds, causing an explosion in the sky. She died but her silver combined with Musica's and her soul slipped inside Musica's silver ray spear, which fell out of the heavens.
Jegan (ジェガン) is a member of the Dragon Race in the Demon World, and the younger brother of Empire's Western General Jade. He is involved in a bitter feud with his former friend Let, because of Jegan's destruction of their home village and the massacre of their kind, in particular Julia, Let's girlfriend. In reality, however, Jegan faked Julia's death, and she became a full dragon who serves as his mindless companion and steed, after she purposely failed her dragon trial to spite him. He uses the "tree" Six Star Dark Bring Yggdrasil, which can absorb energy and manipulate plant life.
After his final battle and defeat at the hands of Let, Jegan realized that Julia still chose Let over him. Jegan would wash up in the beach of Wrist Dome, the Roofed City. He was found and then cared for by a girl named Janna, but a desperate Jegan (feeling he has nothing more to live for) is determined to die. However, a conversation with his brother Jade, the Empire's Western General, caused him to rethink his decision and instead begin anew. Unfortunately, this was not to last, as the city is soon bombarded by meteors from space, courtesy of Shakuma (the world's mightiest sorcerer) and his apprentice Haja, who were out to retrieve the Sinclaire piece Last Physics (which also washed up into the city) and to eliminate Jegan for his failure and weakness. Jegan dies trying in vain to save Janna from the meteor shower, much to his brother Jade's grief and outrage.
Berial (ベリアル Beriaru) is an archduke in the Demon World. A four-eyed demonic bat named Boi Boi often sits on his shoulder. He was the one who proposed to the Great Demon Lord Megido of the Lava and his peers for them to ally with Demon Card, as part of the organization's ambitious Project: Dark Rendezvous. He uses the Six Star Dark Bring G-Earth, which allows him to manipulate the ground. He appears again after The Blue Guardians are defeated and sends an army of monsters to kill Haru and his friends after Haru had retrieved the final RAVE. Haru kills him with a single hit. This is surprising because the author's notes define him as the strongest.
Julius (ユリウス Yuriusu) is an extremely vain individual, obsessed with beauty. He is arguably the weakest member of the Oracion Six, but can be considered dangerous in certain instances, particularly if his own beauty is threatened. Like Shuda, he was a villain in the beginning, but he was reformed (to a certain extent) and became an ally of Haru Glory and his friends. He loves dancing and (his own) beauty to the point that he's willing to betray Demon Card for them.
Deep Snow (ディープスノー Dīpu Sunō) is the Northern General of the Empire, but is in reality a double-agent working for Demon Card. He returned to the organization when Lucia became its new ruler, and was chosen as Shuda's replacement within the Oracion Six. He uses the "flow" Six Star Dark Bring Zero Stream, which allows him to control all that flows (water, wind, blood, etc.), and has also the Dark Bring Type 56 implanted within him when he was an infant, allowing him to tap into his latent power and enhance his physical abilities. He engages in an intense duel with Shuda but loses; however, Shuda lets him live and reveals that King had acted out of compassion for him, treating him like a son just as Snow had looked up to him like a father. His fate after the battle remains unknown.
Gale Symphonia Glory VI (ゲイル・シンフォニア・グローリー六世 Geiru Shinfonia Gurōrī Rokusei) is Haru's father. He is related to the first king of Symphonia, Gale Symphonia Glory I, who was his great-grandfather. Gale had an enchanted sword called the Azure Sky Blade. It is also called the Sapphire Symphonia Sword. Haru and Catellya Glory, his offspring, have split up. Haru is on a journey to find the Rave Stones. Cat just stayed home at Garage Island. Gale was a former Shadow Guard or Demon Card leader. King (Gale Raregroove) was his best friend, but King obtained a shadow stone and went out of control. Glory quit Demon Card and became an Imperial. Unfortunately, King became angry with him, believing he was responsible for the death of his family, and killed Sakura, Gale's wife and Queen of Symphonia. He also slashed Gale's face and sealed a Shadow Stone inside of the newly created scar. Gale resolved to take revenge on King, and so as not to endanger the lives of his children, he never returned home. He reunites with Haru in the Tower of Din and helps him defeat King. Gale died after he protected Haru from falling rocks.
Gale Raregroove (ゲイル・レアグローブ Geiru Reagurōbu), primarily referred to as King (キング Kingu), is the initial ruler of Demon Card and a descendant to the former Raregroove kingdom. He founded Demon Card with Gale but after Gale left from their conflicting bloodlines, King became the sole leader of Demon Card, and soon fell under the influence of Dark Bring, whose power he used to strengthen the organization which later after 10 years, the organization became a force for evil that terrorized the world with the power of Dark Bring. Years later King is reported to the empire by Gale which causes his intentions misread and instead the empire commences a slaughter upon the forces of Demon Card, killing King's wife Emilia and presumably his son Lucia. King himself was taken into custody by the Empire but later broke out with the power of Dark Bring. In the present, Haru and Gale Glory fight King at the Tower of Din where the battle ends with King dying and Gale Glory dying in the aftermath of the fight. King is extremely strong and is often used as a reference to show the relative strength of other villains. Although he uses 5 dark bring, which is considered an extraordinary feat, he does not use any Sinclaire like the other main villains of the series. The fact he can still match them in combat is a testament to his strength. King's sword Decalogus is a dark bring which is the evil counterpart of the TCM. His Dark Bring, Black Zenith fires a huge black sphere that disintegrates anything that it touches. The Dark Bring, Gate which can open doors between worlds. King used this to summon his warriors, the 5 Palace Guardians, from the Mystic realm. Monster Prison is one of the "reverse" Dark Brings feared for their unchecked power, which seals the bearer's body and soul within it for all eternity, transforming them into a beast with just bestial instincts; in this form, he is immune to pain and can fire energy beams from the mouth. The last Dark Bring he possess is Warp Road which has the power of teleportation which King used to extract the Dark Bring End of Earth from within Gale and teleport it to the distant Demon Card HQ, which was annihilated in the subsequent Overdrive. In the anime he is voiced by Tesshō Genda in Japanese.
Lucia Raregroove (ルシア・レアグローブ Rushia Reagurōbu) is the son of King and was the heir to the throne of Demon Card and also the Raregroove Kingdom. During the Empire's infamous raid of Demon Card headquarters 10 years prior to the series present, Lucia was presumably killed in the slaughter along with his mother, Emilia. When he was seen to still be alive, he was imprisoned within the 66th basement of the maximum security desert prison Mega Unit where he became an infamous legend known among the Empire as the Blonde Demon, a boy whose power was so great and terrifying, he was a threat to the entire world. Sometime after the death of his father during the battle at the Tower of Din, he became powerful enough to violently break out of his imprisonment within Mega Unit. Much like Gale Glory and King were destined to oppose each other, Lucia is every bit the antithesis to the second Rave Master Haru Glory, as the self-proclaimed Dark Bring Master. Initially, he possessed Sinclair, the first piece of Endless (The mother of all Dark Brings), that was the main piece which has the power of creating a warped dimensional space that has enough pressure to annihilate anything. After having over 10 years of influence over him, Sinclair managed to bestow upon Lucia a high amount of superhuman strength, speed, stamina, endurance and durability as well as giving him knowledge. He also wields his father's former sword, Decalogue which has the same abilities as Haru's TCM. Although it was later destroyed by Haru and he received an enhanced version of it called Neo Decalogue where 10 dark brings were used to enhanced all 10 swords. In the anime he is voiced by Souichiro Hoshi in Japanese and Armando Valdes-Kennedy in English.
Captain Hardner (ハードナー Hādonā) is the leader of the Blue Guardians. He was recruited by Julius for Demon Card's DR (Dark Rendezvous) plan. His Mother DB Anastasia allows him to "restore" anything, including his missing arm, ruined buildings that had long since been leveled, the atmosphere after Haru tried a smoke screen, and all his opponents old wounds which they have ever suffered and is usually fatal (although it appears he has to touch the subject). He also carries a sword with a blunted tip since he prefers to slash off heads instead of stabbing people, thus earning the nickname "Executioner".
He aims to merge with Endless, to forget the incident of which killed all of his comrades, wife, and unborn child, which made him and his best friend the only survivors. Unknown to him, his unborn child was alive and raised up by his best friend. Hardner also tried all means to torture his daughter to reveal the hideout of which hid an ancient staff deep underground. Realizing what he had done to his own flesh and blood, Hardner broke down in defeat as Haru spares him, only to be stabbed in the back by Lucia to retrieve the mother DB piece in volume 28. It is later revealed he survived the attack.
Pumpkin Doryu (パンプキン・ドリュー Panpukin Doryū) is the founder of the Doryu Ghost Squad and holder of its top position. He holds one of the five mother DB, Vampire, which gives him complete control over the forces of gravity and repulsion which lets him, at the most extreme, pull physical matter into darkness (which he did to Musica). He first fought Haru in Volume 15, and he nearly killed Haru with the Twilight sword. The second time they fought in Volume 17, Haru seemed to have gained some new strength (he might have gotten stronger as a result to losing the first match), and he destroyed the Twilight sword and the Jet Black sword. Haru also received some help from his friends, but it ended up being a one on one fight between Haru and Doryu. Haru was able to overcome the pain of his earlier injuries, destroyed Doryu's most powerful spell (which would have killed Haru and all of his friends), broke through the Vampire's power of repulsion, and he killed Doryu with the Million Suns. After this point, Haru was stronger than Doryu. Haru almost killed himself after he used all his power to defeat Doryu, but he was saved by Dalmatian in Volume 18. In some fan translations, he is mistakenly called 'Drew'. He's voiced by Koji Ishii in some video games.
Saga Pendragon (サガ・ペンドラゴン Saga Pendoragon) is a prophet of Acapella Island, belonging to Nakajima's race. His poi was stolen by a tiny dandelion named "Dee Dee". He can communicate with Haru and Co. through the power of the fourth rave. He was also the one to predict the appearance of Endless which caused Resha to fake her death so that she could fight it in the present day. In the past he was in human form and at the end of the series he is once again human (no explanation is given as to why or how). He has a maid named Sonia (ソニア) who knows a lot about flowers and is very talkative who has also human in the past as well.
Celia (セリア Seria) is a beautiful young mermaid with long blue hair. She is the younger sister of the Queen of the underwater mermaid village, Mildesta. She falls deeply in love with Haru, much to Elie's displeasure. She is capable of using "Sea Magic" which is strong in water and can do things such as giving people the ability to breathe underwater for a limited time and can even take the form of a human on land for a certain amount of time. She teams up with the Rave Warriors for a short time to help stop the Onigami Forces and Doryu Ghost Squad who were terrorizing her people. She's voiced by Ryōka Yuzuki in some video games.
Cattleya Glory (カトレア・グローリー Katorea Gurōrī) is Haru's older sister. She is reluctant to let Haru leave Garage Island. She is the self-proclaimed "Queen of "Karaoke". Since their parents were away, she had to take over in raising Haru and hence, at the start of the series, Haru is often quoting things he should not do because his sister said so. She is revealed to be in a relationship with Shuda when he tested the Stellar shard on himself. In the anime she is voiced by Satsuki Yukino in Japanese.

Nakajima (ナカジマ) is a strange lifeform that lives stuck to the outside wall of Cattleya and Haru's house. He looks like a flower, but claims that the petal-looking things ringing his round face are feathers. His favorite (and perhaps only) hobby is "golling".
Alice (アリス Arisu) the elixir maker is a medicine man met by Haru's gang during the journey to Southernberg island. He says "munya" a lot. Although simple-minded in appearance, usually wearing a bunny eared hat and a loincloth, he is over five hundred years old and 'wields' a giant syringe, containing various fluids, of which switched the souls of Haru, Elie, Musica and Plue around, causing confusion. Alice later cured Elie's broken arm. Due to his age, he has potions with almost unbelievable effects such as enlarging a random part of a person (he used this as a gag), curing almost any wound and restoring a person to his/her true form. He also has a potion for restoring youth, in exchange for a portion of the drinker's remaining days. He was also a former classmate of Mummy of the Doryu Ghost Squad who he domineered over.
