She is a boss in Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji, living inside the stomach of a large fish. She returns as a normal enemy in Madou Monogatari (Saturn)
Madou Monogatari A (PC-98)
The Armadillo is a strange-looking armadillo that attacks Arle in Honoo No Sotsuenji.
Behemoth is a cow-based woman whom is the final of the three exclusive bosses in Madou Monogatari I Honoo No Sotsuenji before Fudoushi and rightfully one of the most difficult. That reason being that she mesmerizes Arle with a dance before attacking, which can be quite difficult for some players to deal with.
After defeat, Behemoth runs off in humiliation that she was beaten by a child.
- Japanese fans find her similar to Rulue; she carries around a fan, has a "noblewoman’s laugh", and is a skilled fighter rather than relying on magic powers. Others think she is also highly like Minotauros as they are both humanoid cows, or possibly a combination of the two characters.
Bunbun is a bee shopkeeper who is always holding a honeypot.
Cauliflower is a variant of Mandrake encountered in Madou Monogatari (Saturn). Unlike the other variants, this version did not appear prior.
He also makes a small appearance in the Game Gear version of Madou Monogatari 1. In that version, it turns out he is an illusion created by Arle's teacher.

Daedalus is a four-armed red robot enemy from the Game Gear version of Madou Monogatari A. It is named after the Greek inventor Daedalus, and it is one of the only robots in the series other than Zed, Frost Giant, (possibly) Samurai, and Socrates.
Dark Dragon is a boss you fight before Schezo in the PC98 and Game Gear version of Madou Monogatari 2. He has a long snake-like body covered in feathers that can be burned off with fire, causing him to shrink down and his eyes to bug out.
In the PC98 version, he has red eyes (until his feathers are burnt off) and looks more like a dragon and name is Black Dragon, while in the Game Gear version he's portrayed as silly.

Dark Matter is the main antagonist of Madou Monogatari: Tower of the Magician. The second time Schezo fights him, he takes control of Wish's body, a similar fate to Arle, Satan, Headmaster, and Klug. He returns in Madou Monogatari: Secret of Elysium, this time taking over the body of Sleeping Princess to fight Arle.
Devil is the main antagonist of Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji. He possesses Headmaster and Fudoushi for their powers similar to Strange Klug, Dark Matter, and Ecolo. He used to be one of Satan's servants but was kicked out and sent to prison due to his arrogant misbehavior.
He has a constant rivalry and also a possible love interest with Arle. He also has a monstrous second form he can take.
Dog Men, known as Noru/Gnoll in the MSX version, are creatures with the body of a man and head of a dog (the direct opposite of Jinmenken below) that carry around a sword.
Donalzo Dog is a character from Madoushi Lulba that appears in Madou Monogatari R as an NPC. Donalzo is a dog who always seems to be barking at something. Despite his looks, he is a professional anma (traditional Japanese massage practitioner), but his tendency to get cold easily leads to his paws feeling numb, leaving him unable to demonstrate his massaging prowess and causing him to whine endlessly.
- Donalzo's name is a parody of Disney character Donald Duck's name. It also contains the kana donaru (ドナル/怒鳴る), meaning "bark/yell".
Despite the name, Dragon Gold, who appears in Madou Monogatari R is actually a blue dragon that guards a large safe with huge amounts of gold and money, threatening to attack whoever comes near it or him.
Dryad is a variant of Mandrake, who serves as an enemy in Madou Monogatari A and Madou Monogatari Saturn. She has green hair in the former and blue hair in the latter. Dryad in "A" appears to be nude with long, flowing hair covering her, but in Saturn, she is just a recolor of Mandrake.
Dullahan is a sword-wielding warrior who's head falls off occasionally and claims to have a beautiful neck. In the PC98 version of Madou Monogatari 3, Dullahan is decapitated and covered in blood when low on health or dead, a similar fate to Schezo. In Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji however, there is no blood possibly due the game aimed toward children. It is unclear if they are male or female.
Madou Monogatari 3 (PC98)
The Egyptian Guardian is a boss from the Game Gear version of Madou Monogatari 3. He resembles a statue of a Pharaoh.
Ekiins are animals standing at the Momonga stations in Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji. Arle has to talk to them to actually get anywhere on the Momongas. They wear different-colored uniforms depending on the station (see below).
Mrs. Eve is an enemy in the Genesis version of Madou Monogatari 1. She is the mother of JUMP HERO character Prince Ivan, and queen of the Penguin Kingdom. She later has the role of a friendly character in JUMP HERO Gaiden, first appearing after Billy de Babine rescues her son from the penguin gangsters, and later shows up on Flower Island to help get rid of many enemies that have cornered Billy and his friends. She also cameos in Arle Man Yuu Ki.
JUMP HERO Gaiden (PC-98)
Fake Carbuncle is a duplicate of Carbuncle sans the red gem Carbuncle has in his head. He attacks Arle in Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji. Contrary to what it may appear as, Fake Carbuncle is in no way related to Doppelganger Arle, nor is he related to Carbuncle in a similar manner as she is to Arle.
Fay is one of Arle's classmates in Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji.
Flightless Bird is an enemy appearing in Madou Monogatari A. Flightless Bird appears to be a light blue penguin with a ball and chain around right its leg. This is a pun, as penguins in real life are flightless birds, and may also be a reference to the English term "jailbird".
Flying Heads are enemies exclusive to the PC-98 version of Madou Monogatari 3. They are semi-humanoid heads with small sharp crocodile-like teeth, long fangs, and solid green eyes. Despite their horrific appearance, they can be swollen and inflated to destroy them.
The Frost Giant is a mecha made out of an igloo, with its pilot located in its crotch. It is an enemy in Madou Monogatari R
Fudoushi is a rotting magic guru who can enlarge and shrink himself. He the final boss of Madou Monogatari 1 (after defeating Cockatrice in the Game Gear version) and creates a hideous illusion of Arle's kindergarten friends melting into hideous figures like Mini Zombie. However, in Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji he is portrayed as a goofy character with attitude and is possessed by Devil for his power.
He first appeared in the PC98 version in replacement of Mamono, and was used in the later remakes with new abilities such as being able to change his size or poison the player. Due to him being more frightening looking, this may be the reason he had never appeared in the actual Puyo Puyo games.
It's unknown if he was always a monster, or was once a human wizard and worked at the school with Teacher.
Garuda is a demonic bird that shouts an ear-shrilling screech when encountered or defeated. The black blood that drips from its mouth that belongs to Lamia. When Lamia loses, Garuda appears from the shadows and devours her body.
Most likely for being unsuitable for younger audiences, in the Gamegear version it was changed into a humanoid bird that appears at random like all enemies and sheds its feathers in defeat. It still can appear when Lamia is in critical condition at times, however. The humanoid form is closer to the original Hindu mythological figure. It also appears in Waku Waku Puyo Puyo Dungeon, albeit now only as a recolor of Cockatrice.
Gay is a homosexual, crossdressing whale (pronounced like the Japanese kanji 鯨 (gei), means whale) who appears as an enemy in Madou Monogatari S.
Yellow Diamond is immune to "Lightning" and her expression is sad. Red Ruby is immune to "Fire" and appears mischievous. Blue Sapphire is immune to "Ice Storm" and is indifferent. Green Emerald is immune to "Jugemo" appears to be regularly happy. The timeline in the Shin Madou Monogatari novels brings up four additional guardians: Flame Garnet, Lightning Zircon, Blizzard Aquamarine, and Storm Alexandria.
Ghost, (not to be confused with Wraith) also known as Human Spirit in the PC98 version, is a wandering ghoul of some sort in Madou Monogatari 1. She can temporarily keep herself in Arle's body. It is unknown if this does any damage, but one is able to drive her out with an exorcism flute. She has a cry similar to Wight when she's defeated.
Madou Monogatari 1 MSX2
A Ghoul can attack Arle in Madou Monogatari A on Game Gear. This ghoul resembles a troll and is armed with a decomposing log to attack.
Goddess of Spacetime
The Goddess of Spacetime is a character referenced in the manual of the PC-98 version for Puyo Puyo. It is said that she whisks Puyo away to another dimension when the spell Owanimo is used. She also appears as a card in Pocket Puyo Puyo Sun.
Artwork from the manual of Puyo Puyo (PC-98 Version)
Gorgon is a gray cow-based creature with devil wings and a bell around its neck in the MSX version of Madou Monogatari 2. Despite its name being taken from the snake-haired female creature in Greek mythology, in no way does it resemble that creature. It instead resembles the Gorgon from Dungeons and Dragons. It also appears masculine instead of female. It attacks by sneezing at foes.
This is not to be confused with the Puyo Puyo!! Quest-exclusive character Gorgon, who actually resembles the mythological creature.
The Guardian is a being resembling Frankenstein's monster (much like the Frankensteins) who is the final boss of Madou Monogatari: Michikusa Ibun. Not to be confused with the Egyptian Guardian from Madou Monogatari 3.
Gust is an enemy introduced in Bayoeen Wars, resembling a cloud with muscular human arms and small white eyes. Gust also appears in Madou Monogatari (Saturn) as an enemy.
Haagen Duck is one of many characters originating from Madoushi Lulba that makes an appearance in Madou Monogatari S. Haagen Duck is a debonair but plucky duck whom light warrior Cyber Cat bumps into on his adventure home. After a brief but rough encounter (one that results in Duck dropping the mystical Sword of Light he was carrying), Duck meets Cyber again and the two reconcile, leading Duck to tag along with the young warrior. He serves as the main comic relief of the game, sometimes getting himself into trouble while attempting to help his newfound "master." When Schezo encounters him inside of the labyrinth in Madou Monogatari S, Haagen Duck explains that he's traveling in search of a "strong guy".
- Haagen Duck's appearance recalls that of Disney character Scrooge McDuck.
- Haagen Duck's name is seemingly derived from the American ice cream brand Häagen-Dazs. This is much more notable in Japanese, where Haagen Duck's name (ハーゲンダック) is only a single character off from the Japanese spelling of Häagen-Dazs (ハーゲンダッツ).
- In the 2018 adventure game La-Mulana 2, there is a duck shopkeeper known as "Bargain Duck" who bears a striking resemblance to Haagen Duck. His description offers even more references that mirror Haagen Duck's desire to grow stronger by searching ancient ruins, and his eventual meeting with Cyber Cat and his insistence on being his follower. The La-Mulana series as a whole takes a lot of inspiration from MSX games, so the reference is more than likely intentional.
Hanzo (sometimes referred to as Hattori Hanzo or Hanzo Bluff) is first of the three exclusive bosses in Madou Monogatari I Honoo No Sotsuenji. When Arle first encounters him, Hanzo seems to be nervous about fighting her, but bluffs and says that he will defeat Arle. Despite his confidence, he is defeated in a single hit, making the battle with him a complete joke.
Afterwards, Arle points out how pathetic that battle was, making him embarrassed.
Hari Senbon is a flying pufferfish holding a paper fan. It attacks Arle as an enemy in Madou Monogatari I Honoo No Sotsuenji.
Headmaster is the principal of Arle's school in Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji. In one point of the game he is possessed by Devil and freezes everyone in the school into statues except Arle. When Devil escapes, he rewards Arle with the Magical Dictionary, which can be used to read gold plaques.
High Flower is a variant of Mandrake who appears in Madou Monogatari A and Madou Monogatari (Saturn). In A, they appear to be a masculine variant of Mandrake, while in Saturn they are simply a recolored version of her.
The Hito Inu is an enemy that looks like a short, beady-eyed person in a dog suit, that appears only in Madou Monogatari 1: Honoo No Sotsuenji.
Jinmenken are dogs with human heads (the direct opposite of Dog Men/Gnoll) who appear as enemies in Madou Monogatari 3.
Kaiju is an enemy exclusive to Madou Monogatari Episode 2: Carbuncle. She is a blue-haired, green-eyed girl in a light blue dress with a red hoodie resembling a horned, clawed reptilian monster, with her arms also being inside the hoodie.
Kazu is one of Arle's schoolmates in Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji
Komori Gal is a humanoid bat woman in the MSX version of Madou Monogatari 1, who has a constant habit of laughing, teasing, or complaining. She was one of the characters proposed for the Beginner mode of the Saturn version of Puyo Puyo Tsu, but was ultimately not used.
Konaki-Jiji, also called Old Coot, is an enemy from the PC-98 version of Madou Monogatari 3.
Ko-Satan is an enemy only appearing in Madou Monogatari Episode II: Carbuncle. Despite its name, it doesn't resemble Satan too much, instead appearing as a scrawny azure imp. This enemy was not included in any future versions of the game. However, a card of this enemy was included in the MSX version of Madou Monogatari 123, indicating it may have been cut from the game late in development.
Ko-Satan's card included with the MSX2 version of Madou Monogatari 123
Kupukupu is a dragon that stands in the middle of the Bazaar in Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji. He is the grandson of Leviathan. When Arle is stuck due to the Twin Rocks not letting her to go to the Dragon Graveyard, Kupukupu asks for a bunch of flowers, and, after receiving them, he goes to talk to the Twin Rocks to let Arle in.
After the defeat of Leviathan Kupukupu is put next to the place where the egg once was with the task of guarding it. He also mentions that his granddad got mad. When Arle gives him the Firefly Egg, he says that he wants Arle to come back to him sometime to play with him.
The Kurilpa is a yellow smiley face that attacks Arle in Madou Monogatari I Honoo No Sotsuenji.
Kurogga is a frog with the stomach of a clock-bomb. He has only appeared in the original MSX version of Madou Monogatari 1 and no other games since there on.
Lala is a young girl who is Arle's classmate. She is madly in love and obsessed with Camus in Madou Monogatari I (Mega Drive). Throughout the tower she pops up at random times, mostly when Camus is around and chases him.
She hasn't appeared in any other games since Madou Monogatari: Chaotic Final Exam, where she's one of the other students taking the final exam alongside Arle.
Lamia is a demon woman with the lower-half of a snake. She may appear cute or attractive at first, but she can gets vicious quick. She kills and seduces young men with a poisonous bite.
In the Gamegear and PC98 versions of Madou Monogatari 2, once she is defeated or in danger, Garuda will come in and eat her, greeting with a terrible screech. She also has a reptilian face in the PC-98 version, and briefly appears as a regular, if large, cobra.
While generally believed to be a separate entity from the Puyo Puyo Quest Lamia, the 25th Anniversary book features the latter alongside the other characters, only listed for main series. The two may in fact be one and the same, as is the case with Succubus.
Lich is an undead being in a cloak full of patches. He uses magic to bring bad luck upon others who come across him. He appears in Madou Monogatari A: DokiDoki Vacation, Madou Monogatari: Final Exam, and Madoh Monogatari.
For more information, see Lilith.
Lizardman, despite the name, is simply a lizard on its hind legs with a bow and arrow. It appears as an enemy in the Game Gear version of Madou Monogatari A and Madou Monogatari (Saturn).
Lulba is the main antagonist of Madoushi Lulba, an adventure game by Compile often considered the spiritual prequel to the Madou Monogatari series. Lulba is a villainous, 4.6 billion-year-old dark wizard who has been resurrected, and plans to cover the world in darkness with his army of 240 million monsters. His only opposition is the young warrior Cyber Cat and his companion, Haagen Duck. He appears in Schezo's story of Madou Monogatari S as a high-level enemy.
- Despite each being from different series, Lulba and Schezo share a few similarities; both share the title of Dark Wizard (Yami no Madōshi, 闇の魔導師), both have lizardmen and cyclops as henchmen, both have a “Light Warrior” counterpart that they fight against (Cyber Cat to Lulba, and Lagnus to Schezo to a lesser extent), and both are beheaded by the protagonists of their respective games.
- The kana that make up Lulba’s name,”ラルバ”, can also be romanized into “Larva”. Larva is Latin for mask, which Lulba prominently wears. Whether this connection was intentional or not is unknown.
- In Madou Monogatari S, Lulba's name is displayed with an "?" at the end, suggesting it might not be the actual Lulba Schezo is fighting.
Lydia is a shopkeeper who appears in the PC-98 version of Madou Monogatari 1, Madou Monogatari: ARS, and Madou Monogatari: Michikusa Ibun, as well as a cameo in the Disc Station game PuyoLympic. She resembles a white jerboa.
Lydia's appearance in all three Windows Madou Monogatari games, starting with Madou Monogatari: Chaotic Final Exam
Lynn is one of Arle's schoolmates in Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji, found in the same room as Chanana.
Lynx is a cat with a striped tail that is usually wrapped around his body. In the Game Gear version of Madou Monogatari 2, he flees from a battle with Arle, luring her to Schezo. In the MSX2 version, his appearance is not dissimilar to a Persian, while in the PC-98 version, he has much shaggier fur and appears to be feral.
The Magic Orbs are spirits that lurk within the three magical orbs Arle obtains throughout Madou Monogatari I Honoo No Sotsuenji. They appear before Arle after witnessing an illusion of her friends melting, and tell her not to succumb to despair. They tell her to defeat Fudoushi, and that they'll always be watching over her.
Medusa is a woman based off of Medusa from Greek mythology. When defeated in the Game Gear version of Madou Monogatari 2, the snakes in her hair fall off. She is one of two characters in the game able to poison Arle, the other being Lamia. Additionally, Lamia uses her hairstyle in Madoh Monogatari.
Millu Holzo Benjamin
Millu Holzo Benjamin, usually just referred to as Millu, is a round red bird who tells Arle of Carbuncle in Madou Monogatari 2
Disc Station #11 (MSX2)
Miyo is one of Arle's schoolmates in Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji. She is found in the same room as Kazu and Rai.
Momonga (Madou Monogatari I Honoo No Sotsuenji)
While the name of this enemy literally means "flying squirrel", these enemies are actually consisted of an upside down peach with butterfly wings. This is likely because "momo" in Japanese also means peach.
Momonga (Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji)
Often dubbed as "flying squirrels", these animals serve as fast travel in Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji. They reside at their stations along with Ekiins. There is no animation for their arrival.
The Mud Alchemist is an enemy appearing in the PC-98 version of Madou Monogatari 3. He is able to create monsters called Muddy Dolls (see below).
Muddy Dolls are the creations of the Mud Alchemist. Much like their master, they are exclusive to the PC-98 version of Madou Monogatari 3.
Nightmare is an enemy from Madou Monogatari R. It is a black horse with a red mane.
Obaba, alternatively known as Fortune-telling Granny, is an elderly fortune-telling rat originally from Madoushi Lulba who makes an appearance as an NPC in Madou Monogatari S. Obaba is described as being very sensitive to all sensations, most notably tickling. In Madoushi Lulba, she holds a key needed to free a chained up girl, but is unwilling to give it to Cyber Cat (likely due to the true identity of the girl). Only when Cyber returns after plucking a feather from a bird and tickles her with it does she finally hand over the key. In Madou Monogatari S, she aids Schezo inside the mirror, and sees great potency in him. She also loses a golden key that she asks Schezo to find for her.
Osaru, also known as Monkey, is a minor character originally from Madoushi Lulba who also appeared in Madou Monogatari S. Osaru is a kleptomaniacal simian who often steals things from those who encounter him, and is curiously said to be a proficient Indian poker player. Unlike most other characters in Madoushi Lulba, he cannot talk, only being able to say "uki" (uki being Japanese onomatopoeia for monkey vocalizations). When first encountered in Madoushi Lulba, he steals Cyber Cat's sword, and only returns it to him after being given kaki no tane. In Madou Monogatari S, Schezo meets him in the ruins, where he is holding the key Obaba is looking for. He also can give you some of his hair, which is valuable as it helps summon a genie that grants Schezo two free level-ups.
Otohime is an enemy in Madou Monogatari (Saturn). She is a woman with a long ribbon across her shoulders.
Pakupaku Egg is an enemy found only in the Game Gear version of Madou Monogatari 3. It is an egg with a large maw.
Pangloss are enemies in the PC-98 version of Madou Monogatari 3. They are blob monsters akin to Puyo, but they lack faces.
Pascal is a character originally from Madoushi Lulba that appears in Madou Monogatari R as an NPC. He is a philosophical raccoon with a tendency to be easily frightened, especially by those who carry swords. In Madoushi Lulba, Cyber Cat can meet him at the river bank. If Cyber has his sword in his possession, Pascal will run away, but if he does not have it, Pascal can be conversed with. After talking to him a few times and then dancing for him, he will give you a snack that can be given to Osaru.
- Pascal's name is a nod to the 1977 Japanese children's anime series Rascal the Raccoon.
Penny is one of Arle's classmates in Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji.

Pigra is a porcine merchant who appears in Madou Monogatari 2, near where Satan is met. He is capable of crafting the Great Staff, an item that can fully restore both one's magic and health.

Puyoman were a highly popular manjū treat produced and sold by Compile, made to look like Puyos. One appears as minor character in the Game Gear version of Madou Monogatari III, serving as an advertisement. It is initially mistaken to be a Yellow Puyo by the game, but Arle is quick to realize that it is actually a steamed bun. It begins to talk, stating that they will be sold in Miyajima, Hiroshima beginning in January of 1995, the month after the game's release. After it leaves, Arle is left confused by the encounter.
In the mobile port of the game, released in 2009, its dialogue is changed to tell of how it used to be found in Hiroshima, asking that it not be forgotten.
Rai is one of Arle's schoolmates in Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji. He is found in the same room as Kazu.

Red Kabuster is a lobster with a turnip for a head that appears as an enemy in Madou Monogatari 1: Honoo No Sosetsuji. Its name is a portmanteau of "red lobster" (possibly in reference to the popular seafood restaurant chain) and "kabu", the Japanese word for a turnip.
Roc is a bird so massive only its foot can be seen. It is an enemy in Madou Monogatari R. Cockatrice is the size of this enemy in the Sega Genesis version of Madou Monogatari 1.

Runelord is the main antagonist of Madou Monogatari S. He was destroyed in the past by a legendary hero, revealed to be Lagnus in Shin Madou Monogatari. He wants Schezo to become his successor, but Schezo hates the idea and tries to destroy his spirit once and for all. While defeated, his influence is absorbed by Schezo in the end.
Samurai is a samurai robot (possibly; in his home game, he is organic) who appears as an enemy in Madou Monogatari S. He is originally from another Compile game known as Samurai King Megason Z (サムライキング メガスオンZ), an adventure game very similar to Madoushi Lulba (even being developed by the same in-house team, Monkeydo). There, he was the form of main protagonist Yoshitaka Minami whilst fused with the spirit of the ancient Samurai King in order to defeat an evil monster.
Sapropel Insects are parasites that live inside of People Rot feeding off of them, they crawl out to fight once the flesh is defeated.
In the PC98 of Madou Monogatari 1 they appear like real parasites/larvae, while in the PC Engine version they have worm bodies with human heads that have spiky hair.
Satyr is an enemy from Madou Monogatari A. He is a green-haired satyr holding a flute.
Seth is another one of Arle's petrified classmates in Big Kindergarten Kids.
A living Scarecrow serves as an enemy in Madou Monogatari A. It wears a blue jacket, a brown hat, and uses its scythe to attack Arle.
Sheep Spider is a cross between a sheep and a spider. It is an enemy exclusive to the Game Gear version of Madou Monogatari 3
Siren is a mystical woman with a bad singing voice believing it's good much like Harpy. She carries around a small grey bottle in her hand in the gamegear version of Madou Monogatari 2. Upon defeat, she will release a horrible screech, much like Garuda.
Skeleton D is the twin brother of Skeleton T from Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji. Instead of a calm tea-lover like his brother, he is an energetic alcoholic. He has not appeared in any other games since.
In said game he appeared in, he is an imposter of one of the Old Village people claiming that he was stealing vegetables out of sheer boredom. He can swig his beer to get health back and has an ice move identical to Arle's.
The Sleeping Princess is the final boss of Madou Monogatari: Secret of Elysium. She is a woman that claims to be a powerful mage that battles Arle. She appears to be possessed by Dark Matter, as shown when his spirit flies out of her after she is defeated.
Socrates is an NPC encountered in Madou Monogatari A: Doki Doki Vacation. He is a large, abandoned iron golem that resembles a battle mech. Socrates says that he was created by an ancient mage that has been dead for some time, and suggests Arle become his new master, to which she agrees. He then asks her to retrieve three parts for him (rust remover, oil, and a black box), and gives her rope to help navigate the quicksand area. After giving him these items, he can finally function once again and can be summoned with a magic ribbon (which allows him to blast open heavy doors and can attack in battle). When he and Arle reach Satan’s fortress, the duo are ambushed by Satan’s golems. Socrates fends them off, but is left beyond repair after the battle. In his final moments, Socrates asks Arle to protect the forest, and finally passes on.
Spector is an enemy in the Madou Monogatari franchise. He first appears in Madou Monogatari 3 , and later in Madou Monogatari for the SEGA Saturn. It resembles a dark purplish figure with a cat's tail and a wide grin. These elements seem to evoke the Cheshire Cat of Lewis Carroll fame.
Spriggan is an enemy in Madou Monogatari A, resembling a muscular, mecha-like ghost with elements of a genie (blue skin, gold earrings/bracelets, pointy ears, and a wispy tail). He is originally from Seirei Senshi Spriggan, a vertical shooter also developed by Compile, where he was the player's ship and took on a more detailed and occult-inspired design. His name is derived from a creature in Cornish folklore, also called spriggan.
- Spriggan's design in Madou Monogatari A bears much resemblance to the character of the Genie from Disney's 1992 animated film Aladdin. Given how Aladdin debuted just a year before the release of Madou Monogatari A, and how Disney's properties are quite popular in Japan, it's likely this was intentional.
The Sword Beast is a kamaitachi enemy that appears in Madou Monogatari A.
Tanuki is a mystical tanuki that can transform itself into Arle, found only in Madou Monogatari I Honoo No Sotsuenji. Its gender is unknown; despite it being able to change form into Arle, it also appears male.
Tautau (not to be confused with Tarutaru) is a blue cat-like merchant from the PC-98 and PC Engine versions of Madou Monogatari 1.
- In the Game Gear version of Madou Monogatari 1, the merchant for the shop on Floor 1 of the Magic Tower, despite clearly being Parara, is referred to as Tautau. This was most likely an error as Tautau doesn't appear in this version of the game.
Teacher(not to be confused with Lucifer) is Arle's school teacher that appears in most of the games where she's five-years old. In the original MSX version, her hair is peach instead of green. She appears in Madou Monogatari 1, its Mega Drive version, and Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji.
For more information, see here.
Teppouuo is an archerfish with four legs, which appears to be partially made out of wood. It first appears in Bayoeen Wars as a unit that can be summoned by Arle and her opponents, and attacks by spitting water on enemies.
The Test Body is an experimental body who's flesh is rooted to the exit of Schezo's dungeon in the PC98 version of Madou Monogatari 2. It's purposes are unknown other than keeping Arle from leaving. It is possible that the victims of Schezo, after their powers have been taken, were fed to it. Schezo transfers his own consciousness into it to try and kill her one final time.
Tetete is the missing son of Tototo. Arle must find him to escape the woods.
Tototo is an NPC from Madou Monogatari 3. He is a weak, harmless monster who doesn't want to hurt anybody. His son, Tetete, is missing. Arle, unlike others who entered the woods, refused to attack him, so he offers to help Arle escape if she can find Tetete.
Trent is an enemy from Madou Monogatari Saturn. It is an angry tree with branches for arms, and can apparently walk. There are four types of Trents in the game, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, corresponding to the four seasons.
Turtle is an Enemy from Madou Monogatari (Saturn). It is a large dinosaurian-looking tortoise with spines on its shell, as well as a spiked forehead.
Tyranno, short for Tyrannosaurus, is a vicious but surprisingly not very large dinosaur that only appeared in the two MSX2 versions of Madou Monogatari 2. It has a loud roar in Madou Monogatari Episode II: Carbuncle and seems to have an organic body, while in the final version of Madou Monogatari 2, its body appears to be made of glass and makes a shattering noise upon defeat.
Valkyrie is a blonde-haired woman in white carrying a sword and shield. She first appeared in Madou Monogatari S as an enemy, and later had a cameo in Madou Monogatari I (Mega Drive).
- Valkyrie's design was likely based on Namco's own Valkyrie character, as both have blonde hair, similar dresses and weaponry, and winged headwear. It is also interesting to note Namco had a planned Valkyrie game featured as a demo on DiscStation #4 for MSX known as Valkyrie no Boken II: Harukanaru Toki no Tobira (ワルキューレの冒険II 遥かなる時の扉).
Violence Monkey is an enemy type that appears in Madou Monogatari A and Madou Monogatari Saturn. It is an angry monkey.

Wight is an enemy in the first Madou Monogatari. She appears to be a rotting girl with white hair in a blue dress.
Wish is a witch that appears in Madou Monogatari: Tower of the Magician and appears as a supporting character for Schezo. She is Witch's grandmother and looks very much like her, except she has longer, silvery hair, and a darker shade of blue clothing.
She is said to be a powerful magician and her triumph over the evil wizard Dark Matter was significant enough to be recorded in a book.
She is possessed by Dark Matter for the final battle of the Madou Monogatari: Tower of the Magician, making her not too dissimilar to Satan, Klug and even Arle, all of whom have suffered similar fates.
Her name, in addition to implying her supposedly benevolent personality, may also be a pun on the Japanese pronunciation of "Witch". She is also occasionally mentioned in SEGA games, though not by name.
Wood Man is an enemy appearing in Madou Monogatari: Hanamaru Dai Youchienji. He resembles a humanoid upper body inside of a tree trunk.
Yoggus is the primary antagonist of Madou Monogatari (Saturn). He is the arch-enemy of Lagnus the Brave, and was sealed away by him. He decides to invade the new world and his Yogs begin to brainwash the population.
