Arachne is a woman with the body of a spider based of mythology, much like Lamia and Medusa. She is normally aggressive and sends her babies to attack. 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).
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.
Cauliflower is a variant of Mandrake encountered in Madou Monogatari (Saturn).
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.
Despite its name, Cerberus is a flat-looking dog creature with only one head. It is an enemy in Madou Monogatari 1 Honoo no Soutsenji.
The Clay Alchemist is an enemy appearing in the PC-98 version of Madou Monogatari 3.
Count is the main antagonist of Rulue's story in Madou Monogatari: ARS. He kidnaps Carbuncle away from Satan, only to be defeated by Rulue. He also appears as a villain in Rulue's Spring Break along with Vampire and Demon Servant.
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 and Samurai below.
Dark Dragon is a boss you fight before Schezo in the PC98 and gamegear 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.

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.
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.
The Egyptian Guardian is a boss from the Game Gear version of Madou Monogatari 3. He resembles a statue of a Pharaoh.
Mrs. Eve is an enemy in the Genesis version of Madou Monogatari 1 who is related to Billy Burn.

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.
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 its leg.
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.
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.

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.
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.

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.

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.
