Mandora Boy (マンドラ坊や, Mandora Bōya)
A young mandrake the Magirangers met when they found their secret headquarters. Despite being in a pot, he can hop around as well as fly. He can even be plucked out of the pot, which, true to his species, will cause him to emit a deafening cry, though the experience comes to him as painful (as seen in Stage 3, when Tsubasa, with headphones on, did so). Mandora Boy will often give advice to the team, particularly Kai, and introduced their individual abilities to them. He is very emotional and easily excited and tends to bicker with Smoky after he and Hikaru moved in.

Sungel saved Smoky by placing him in the Magi Lamp, but the cat is informed that he can't last more than three hours outside the lamp. Smoky can be released from the curse if he grants the wishes of others, but Smoky prefers to grant only one wish to whoever awakens him from his slumber, and only if he is compensated for his services. When the Ozu siblings wished for Infershia to be gone, he denied their request, stating that the power the Infershia wield is greater than his own. He seems to have some limited magical powers as well, such as getting brief glimpses of the future and enlarging himself to help the gang out and by turning food into sand as a prank.

The giant-sized leader of the Heavenly Saints who resides in Heavenly Temple, the highest point in Magitopia.

Magiel even admitted she frowned on both Blagel's choice to sacrifice himself and Miyuki's intent to learn magic. But after seeing the same courage their parents showed, Magiel allowed them Unigolon's aid and made a later exception on the distribution of the Legendary Magicians' power to the Ozu siblings. When N Ma attacks Magitopia, after failing to stop him, Magiel teleports Lunagel to the human world while seemingly killed by the demon's rampage.

After Vancuria planted one of his fishscales on Wolzard during the battle, Dagon takes Wyvern and Titan with him to ambush Wolzard and knock him down a fiery crevasse after extracting N Ma's soul.

The antagonist of Magiranger vs. Dekaranger, his real name is Hades Beastman Demon Apollos (デーモン Meijujin Dēmon Aboloth) who leave Earth years ago and became an apprentice and successor to Agent Abrella with the Alienizer Babon as his partner in crime in a scheme to acquire the Flower of Heaven to destroy all love on the planet. But after being wounded by Legend MagiRed and the DekaRed Battlizer, Agent X is destroyed when the Magirangers and the Dekarangers hit him and Babon with their Fantastic Strike Out attack.

GruntsEdit

High Zobils (ハイゾビル, Hai Zobiru)
Higher-ranked Zombies who wield either large spear-like staffs or whips and leads the Zobils into battle as a field commander. They can also control some of the Hades Beasts. While they first appeared in Stage 1, they first fought the Rangers in Stage 3, where the one they fought against and was beaten by the Rangers was killed by Branken as punishment for incompetence. Branken was originally a High Zobil himself. Toad occasionally ate High Zobil from a bowl.
Zobils (ゾビル, Zobiru)
Corpselike soldiers who wield axes and follow the High Zobil. There are thousands of them in the lair. Underneath their helmets are their repulsive rotting skulls with maggots. In the finale, they are shown with builder hats building the bridge that links the surface world to the Kedomono Realm.
Hades Beasts (冥獣, Meijū)
The first wave of monsters to fight the Magirangers, send by Branken to kill humans in hopes that one of their victims is Lunagel, whose death would open the gate. The first three were naturally giant, but the rest were human-sized when first depicted. When these human-sized Hades Beasts are killed, Wolzard used a spell that resurrects the monsters and makes them grow. They emerged onto the surface through a Madou Circle.

Magical spellsEdit

The characters of Magiranger use magical spells to accomplish tasks. Each magical word correspond to a digit on a phone. For example, when the Magiranger want to transform into their Magiranger forms, they use 106, which corresponds to "Maagi Magi Magiiro" and "Goolu Golu Goludiro".
