Delinquent 2

Delinquent 3

3) Fat Delinquent

A part of the trio. Not much of him is revealed yet, as he only appears so rarely.


The common trait all of them share is their foul and mean behavior. They've only been seen "bullying" girls (and Keima) and their leader even used a pocket-knife (a metal-baton in the anime) to try and attack Kusunoki. However, once this facade is removed, they are revealed to be complete cowards. Nikaidō-sensei often beats them up.

Character History

Samurai Girl Arc

The Mai-High Delinquents threatening Kusunoki

The trio first appeared when Elsie accidentally bumped into them. Refusing to be appeased by Elsie's apologies, they try to hit her but was told by Keima to be parsley people and mob characters. Upon hearing that, the trio begin to vent their anger on Keima.

Later, Kusunoki, who was passing by, tells them not to bully the weak. Their leader, Ryou, pulls out a metallic baton (pen-knife in the manga) and threatens to slash Kusunoki. However, Kusunoki easily dodges them and scares them away soon enough.

Haqua Arc

The trio were spotted again when Keima brings Haqua to "A place which emits negative energy". Angered that they are interrupted, they charge at both of them. In the end, they got beaten by Haqua.

Teacher Trainee Arc

The delinquents appear yet again where they litter on their way to school. Jun tells them to pick it up, but they ignore her. Twice. They are also later shown to get beaten up by Nikaido.

Godzilla Sister Arc

The delinquents appear again and bullies Keima after Elsie bumps into them once again, only to be scared off by Hinoki when she shows her strength.

Old Conquest Arc

After Kanon's confession, the trio later harassed Keima about the news but was beaten up by Haqua (disguised as Elsie) again. Later, the trio was once again attacked by Yui (to prove to Keima that she can defend him). After a few days, two of them cut in line in front of Lune to buy Taiyaki. They are scared away when Lune starts rambling and stabs herself.
