Characters

Beelzebub (ベルゼブブ, Beruzebubu)
Voiced by: Saori Ōnishi[2]
The titular character of the series, a young girl with long blond hair and blue eyes. Beelzebub is a former Seraph and the current ruler of Pandemonium following the unexplained disappearance of Satan. While most demons look up to her for her skills as a capable and intelligent ruler in private she is a ditzy airhead who rules only because it is her job and loves anything fluffy, in fact her lifelong dream is to become one big ball of fluff. She enjoys teasing her Head Attendant, Mullin, and frequently embarrasses him for her own amusement. She is in love with him after an incident where he protected her from thugs made her heart race, but as she has had no experience with men she as yet does not understand what her feelings are.
Mullin (ミュリン, Myurin)
Voiced by: Rikuya Yasuda[2]
A young male demon with blue hair and blue eyes, he is Beelzebub's Head Attendant and prefers all work to run smoothly and efficiently. He has some Tsundere characteristics with other demons claiming he has the "pure heart of a maiden." He is easily embarrassed and will blush whenever he is exposed to Beelzebub's naked body or anything to do with sex. He is often frustrated by Beelzebub's behaviour and while he respects her leadership skills he is more than willing to scold her ditzy airheaded behaviour. He is strongly attracted to her and often cannot handle how cute she is. He is highly protective of her and has at least some ability to fight as he quickly dealt with two thugs harassing Beelzebub when she was lost in the city.
Azazel (アザゼル, Azazeru)
Voiced by: Satoshi Hino[3]
A tall and muscular demon with a serious demeanour, silver hair and brown eyes who used to be a Cherub. Despite his serious appearance he is actually extremely kind and friendly. He almost never speaks out loud, preferring to communicate with messages written on display boards. He secretly loves cute things like puppies and kittens and collects stuffed toys he keeps in his room, especially teddy bears. The only meal he will eat from the castles canteen is teddy bear pancakes. He is skilled enough at sewing that he can make his own stuffed animals, which he frequently is asked to do by Beelzebub, and is also able to bake his own cookies. He has a crush on Belphegor and hates that his appearance frightens her and has tried several methods of making himself seem less scary.
Belphegor (ベルフェゴール, Berufegōru)
Voiced by: Misaki Kuno[4]
A young female demon with pink hair and red eyes, the former Principality of Heaven. She suffers from severe social anxiety and is scared of almost everybody, except for Beelzebub whom she always runs to and hides behind. Her anxiety means she shakes from fear almost constantly and also has a nervous bladder that causes her to urinate when she is really frightened, meaning she dashes to the bathroom several times a minute. She appears to have a crush on Azazel as she was extra nervous around him, upset when she thought he was mad at her and happily accepted a bag of cookies from Mullin after learning Azazel baked them.
Astaroth (アスタロト, Asutaroto)
Voiced by: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka[5]
A male former Angel with blond hair and gold eyes who sometimes uses fake angel wings to impress women. He chose to fall from Heaven shortly after Beelzebub did due to his crush on her and often tries to communicate his feelings, though his methods make him come across as a stalker. He was surprised that Beelzebub seemed to like Mullin more than himself as he considers Mullin boring and unimpressive. He likes to refer to himself as Beelzebub's older brother, though they are not related.
Sargatanas (サルガタナス, Sarugatanasu)
Voiced by: Ai Kakuma[5]
A tall and strict female demon with brown eyes and short purple hair except for two long strands that almost reach the floor. She is Astaroth's assistant and spends most of her time chasing him down and forcing him to return to work. Despite her calm and collected appearance she is actually an open sadist, frequently punishing Astaroth violently or threatening to shoot him with her twin pistols, especially when he draws attention to her flat chest. Her position in Pandemonium's finance department allows her to maintain a secret stash of money to repair any damages caused by her violent methods of forcing Astaroth to actually do his job. Despite her violence she also enjoys cute things similar to Azazel, though unlike Azazel she prefers to keep her hobby a secret. She has a secret crush on Astaroth and becomes embarrassed whenever he says anything nice to her.
Eurynome (エウリノーム, Eurinōmu)
Voiced by: Chinatsu Akasaki[6]
A female glasses wearing demon with long blue hair and green eyes who works in Pandemonium's Justice Department. While working she is very professional and, according to Mullin, very cool, but in secret she has a fetish for boys in Elementary School, though she only ever watches them from a distance. Her fetish means she considers grown men to be unappealing and the only way she can stand talking with them is by using her powerful imagination, a power she calls Wings of Imagination, to picture all grown men in their young boy forms. She dislikes Astaroth because of his insincere, promiscuous personality, much preferring his fragile, needy young boy form she sees in her imagination. She appears to have a more substantial crush on Dantalion due to his extremely youthful appearance.
Dantalion (ダンタリオン, Dantarion)
Voiced by: Aoi Yūki[6]
A youthful looking male demon with blue hair, blue eyes and blue rabbit ears. He is the librarian of Pandemonium's library who has both Bibliomania and Bibliophilia. His favourite activity is reading books at night, meaning he often falls asleep at his desk, whilst talking to people and even when standing up. He possesses an ability to determine exactly what book a person would most want to read, correctly guessing Mullin's favourite author after only knowing him for a few seconds. He is friends with Azazel and uses Molech as a stepladder to reach high shelves. Though he refers to Molech as "Senpai" he is usually the one ordering Molech around. He claims to have read every book within the library, of which there are over 700 million. Based on the amount of time it would take to read so many books Mullin calculates that the youthful looking Dantalion may actually be one of the oldest demons in Pandemonium.
Molech (モレク, Moreku)
Voiced by: Kazuyuki Okitsu[6]
An extremely energetic, overeager and loud male demon with brown hair, green eyes and glasses. He is one of the oldest demons in Pandemonium making him almost as important as Beelzebub, however, unlike Beelzebub he delegates all his work to his subordinates so he can focus on his real passion, doing whatever Dantalion tells him to.
Nisroch (ニスロッチ, Nisurotchi)
A tall male demon with orange hair and eyes. He is the former Principality of the Garden of Eden who guarded the Forbidden fruit. He is now Beelzebub's personal chef and is proud of this fact, even being moved to tears when Beelzebub asked for a lesson in cooking, thinking she wanted to learn so she wouldn't need him anymore. He is skilled enough that he can cook an entire meal in 3 seconds, moving at such high speeds his clothes are torn off.

Pandemonium is a paradise populated by demons who run Pandemonium in Satan’s absence. Beelzebub, a former Seraph, now rules Pandemonium and many demons look up to her as she is an expert ruler. However, in private she is ditzy, airheaded and loves anything fluffy. Her head attendant, Mullin finds her asleep, naked and surrounded by fluffy White Gossamers, embarrassing Mullin who finds her cute but infuriating. Beelzebub frequently amuses herself by teasing him. Mullin learns Beelzebub trusts him a lot he is the only attendant she is willing to complain to. Realising he may have upset her by running away Mullin gives her Alpacca wool pyjamas, so she can feel fluffiness without sleeping naked. Beelzebub is happy Mullin does not hate her. Beelzebub explains demons do not cause human sin, they provide opportunities to sin or not to sin so God can judge them accurately. One of Beelzebub’s duties is to make sure demons living in Pandemonium are content. Mullin worries she may be in danger until he learns she fought in the war against Heaven and was second only to Satan. Despite this Mullin gets angry that she keeps wandering away from him while in town. They argue and Beelzebub ends up getting lost. Mullin beats up two demons harassing her in a bad neighbourhood and gets angry at her for worrying him. As they return home Beelzebub sends Mullin away as his protectiveness of her has confused her and made her heart race. Mullin worries he has overstepped and might lose his job. Beelzebub finally uses her new pyjamas.

Beelzebub has gotten even lazier and now has White Gossamers in her office.

Mullin follows him hoping to learn how to be manly, but is frustrated since Azazel only eats teddy bear pancakes and makes his own stuffed toys in his room. Beelzebub arrives to pick up a teddy bear she asked Azazel to make for her. Mullin assures Azazel he is not disappointed after learning about his hobbies and Azazel hugs him, until Beelzebub jealously pushes them apart. Mullin finds a young demon, Belphegor, outside Beelzebub’s office. She is so scared of him she almost pees herself, until Beelzebub throws her into the bathroom. Belphegor has social anxiety and a nervous bladder, meaning she pees whenever she is scared. Azazel arrives and Belphegor is so scared she runs away, depressing Azazel. Beelzebub is forcibly dragged to her next meeting while Mullin tries to make Azazel less scary. They try several methods but nothing works. When Azazel learns Mullin has never received Valentine chocolates he gives him cookies he baked himself. Mullin runs into Belphegor again who is worried that Azazel is mad she ran away. Mullin assures her he is not and gives her some of the cookies. Belphegor plans to treasure them rather than eat them as she likes Azazel, though Mullin is too dense to realise.

He identifies Mullin as boring and is shocked to realise Beelzebub likes Mullin more than him. While praising Beelzebub’s beauty he reveals he is actually Beelzebub’s stalker and only fell from Heaven because Beelzebub fell first and he followed her. Mullin comments that Beelzebub and Astaroth look good together since they are both more attractive than him which upsets Beelzebub so she leaves. Astaroth follows and she explains Mullin’s comment made her sad, though she is not sure why. Mullin asks Beelzebub to go to the café again next time they are in town, making her happy. Astaroth begins observing Mullin, who at first seems dull but does possess some potential boyfriend qualities, despite sometimes acting more like Beelzebub’s mother. Astaroth’s assistant arrives, a cool but sadistic female demon named Sargatanas who controls Astaroth through cruel and unusual punishment and returns him to his own office. She reveals she also loves cute things but asks Mullin to keep this secret. She becomes embarrassed when Astaroth says he likes her despite her cruelty, revealing she has a crush on him.

He then discovers she is a secret pervert who likes young boys; though she insists it is just a hobby and she only watches from a distance. Astaroth tries to flirt with her but she is completely immune to him, until she imagines what he would look like as a child and becomes excited. Sargatanas arrives to collect Astaroth only to punish him for mentioning her flat chest. Beelzebub wants to go on another date with Mullin and is overjoyed when he wins movie tickets and invites her, though he believes her enthusiasm is because she really wants to see the movie. Beelzebub is too excited and stays awake all night while Mullin spends all night worrying about whether seeing a movie counts as a date and catches a cold. Beelzebub and Azazel try to help him recover. Mullin tells Beelzebub to see the movie with Azazel, though Beelzebub insists on staying with Mullin. Azazel is horrified to learn the tickets were for a gory zombie movie. Mullin eventually falls asleep and Beelzebub almost kisses him before running back to her room panicking and confused. The next day Mullin recovers but finds Beelzebub has caught his cold.

Azazel invites Mullin to Pandemonium’s library to meet Dantalion, the librarian who can tell exactly which book a person should read, and Molech, one of the oldest demons in Pandemonium who leaves all his work to his subordinates so he can spend his time helping Dantalion reach books on high shelves. Mullin spots Eurynome who reveals she has a crush on Dantalion. Dantalion explains the library holds over 700 million books and he has read them all. Based on the time needed to manage such a feat Mullin realises Dantalion must actually be one of the oldest demons in Pandemonium, possibly older than Beelzebub and far too old for the unaware Eurynome. Belphegor asks Beelzebub for help making a dessert for Azazel so she has a reason to talk to him. Beelzebub asks her personal chef, Nisroch, for help but he cooks at such high speeds his clothes are blown off, terrifying Belphegor. She and Beelzebub work together and manage to bake brownies, though Belphegor panics when she realises she now has to actually give them to Azazel. With some encouragement she manages to talk to Azazel who is so happy he asks if he and Belphegor can bake something together. This overwhelms Belphegor so much she passes out. Beelzebub gives some brownies to Mullin, who in turn gives her an Encyclopaedia of Fluffiness from the library, bringing them closer together.
