Inspiration and references

◈┣━━━━━━━༄━━━━━━━┫◈

Initial inspiration

▷The HellPrince of Sloth in Hebrew religions. He was an Angel that was cast from heaven for not siding with Lucifer or assisting the armies of Heaven in the Rebellion of Lucifer, which is reflected in Belphegor’s backstory.

Other references

▷Belphegor being seated in a throne and his Tenet allowing a shadow to fight in his place are a reference to his role as the Prince of Sloth in the Classification of Demons. I thought it would be a cool idea to make a character based off a slothful character with great physical abilities but having the inability to use them all the time.

Order

Order name

▷The Seven Archdemons

Order Creator

▷The Demon King

Order Blessing

▷The Seven Tenets of Darkness

▷The Seven Tenets are seven incredibly dark powers that are much like the Archangel’s graces. While the Commandments curse others and can curse the wielder, like the Graces the Tenets are like a second magic power, giving the wielder a dark ability formed from their darkness. It also enhances their demonic Darkness. Just like Graces and unlike Commandments, if a human were to posses a Tenet it would eventually kill them, either instantly or through usage.

Order purpose

▷The Seven Archdemons were formed from the most powerful High Class Demons in the Demon army, meant specifically to counter the Archangels after the continued failure of the Ten Commandments. Each Archdemon was selected for their immense magical powers, and each Archdemon is specialized in an innate power or aspect of Demons.

Inspirations and trivia

▷The Seven Archdemons were based on the Seven Princes of Hell, Seven of the highest ranking demons in abrahamic religions that represented the Seven Deadly Sins. Obviously not wanting to be unoriginal and use the Seven Deadly Sins for this order, the Seven Tenets of Satan were used as inspiration for their blessings, each ability’s name being inspired by its corresponding tenet.

▷Each Archdemon is specialized in or has a more advanced of an innate ability or aspect of the Demon Clan with the exception of the captain. Belphegor has an ability to manipulate Miasma, Azazel is an expert in Hellfire, Asmodeus is an expert in possession magic, Beelzebub is an expert in Soul Stealing, Leviathan though not transforming into an Indura can access a more primal and powerful form, and Mammon is an expert in manipulating his Darkness, even more than the other Archdemons.

▷Each Archdemon has a rivalry with an Archangel through either a battle where they were equally matched or through an important moment in their past.

Powers

Magic power

╉✧╊

Name

▷Devil’s Forgemaster

Description

▷Belphegor manifests a black cobalt pearl of great value from his magic reserves. It will cover the area in a black and red glowing miasma that boosts dark magic and darkness’ power and granting Belphegor the power of necromancy. Belphegor can transfer this miasma into deceased beings and use powerful necromancy to bring them back. The pearl’s greatest ability however is to transform magicless objects people and creatures into demons, much like Demon blood transformed humans into the New Generation.

Drawbacks

▷The zombies created by the Pearl are not sentient like Elaine after being resurrected by Melascula, and are weak, with a maximum powerlevel of a 100. Items turned demonic by the Pearl are only as powerful as the sacrifice it was to make it, so if not offered any blood the objects aren’t very powerful. Humans transformed into half Demons are not subservient to Belphegor like resurrected corpses are and will need to be convinced or recruited.

Development

▷Belphegor manifested his powers not soon after he was paralyzed after being banished. His power was born from his desire to be able to do things despite not being able to move, and make everything dark since he despises the light. Belphegor was able to use his powers to demonize objects and raise mindless zombies who could do basic tasks for him.

Name

▷Retribution

Type

▷Tenet

Granter

▷The Demon King

Possible inspirations

▷The Tenets of Satan

Description

▷The Tenet of Retribution allows Belphegor to make a clone of himself out of Darkness. This clone has al of his physical abilities, his strength and speed and even a cloned version of his great sword, but not his magical abilities. The clone is not able to move unless the original is not moving. Belphegor often seats himself and lets the clone fight for him, supporting it by resurrecting the dead of the battle field. Belphegor is not allowed to stand up from his throne otherwise the clone disappears, making him vulnerable and in need of protection.

Name

Description

▷Darkness allows Belphegor like all other demons to manipulate darkness to make constructs, heal themselves and many other dark abilities.

║╟╤╦╤╦╤╦╣║

Other Abilities

Name

▷Curse of Laziness

Description

▷Belphegor was cursed by the lightning bolt the Deity used to cast him from the Celestial Realm. It turned his disinterest to fight or take responsibility into a curse that quickly fired him. Only with his Retribution Tenet can he have an ability that can restore his physical energy.

Drawbacks

▷ If Belphegor doesn’t use this ability to restore his energy He cannot perform tiring exercises and needs his Dark Clone to fight for him while he gives it support with necromancy. Restoring his energy by feeding he can temporarily fight on his own, giving him another ability to use both his physical abilities and his supporting magic.

║╟╤╦╤╦╤╦╣║

Weaknesses

╉✧╊

▷Movement

▸Besides being lazy and not wanting to move, he also cannot considering if he did his Retribution Tenet deactivates.

▷High class Goddess Magic

▸High class purification spells are able to work against Belphegor’s magical ability.

║╟╤╦╤╦╤╦╣║

Resistances

╉✧╊

▷Energy draining magic

▸Since his own body does not move unless he has regained energy and his clone is immune to energy draining magic, this kind of magic is not effective.

║╟╤╦╤╦╤╦╣║

Techniques

╉✧╊

Normal Techniques

▷Vampiric Kiss

▸Belphegor’s Retribution clone will drain an opponent of their physical strength slowly and transfer it to Belphegor. It does not replenish magic power.

▷Spell sword

▸Belphegor uses the energy Vampiric Kiss to temporarily negate his curse from the Deity and use both his incredible physical strength in conjunction with his magic powers.

▷King of Shadows

▸Belphegor infuses his sword with Darkness and plunges into the ground causing Darkness to blast opponents back.

History

▷Belial is a spear Belphegor created when he became a demon. When fighting alongside a demon he had befriended, the Demon died in battle. Belphegor used his soul and the soul of the Goddesses he killed on the battlefield to infuse and demonize the Demon’s spear, creating a large demonic lance. He named it after his friend; Belial.

◈┣━━━━━━━༄━━━━━━━┫◈

Personality

◈┣━━━━━━━༄━━━━━━━┫◈

General Description

▷Belphegor’s main quality is his aloofness and general disinterest in most things. He generally doesn’t like most things expected, asked or recommended to him. He is very calm in nearly any situation, mostly because most situations even dire ones don’t interest him enough for him to be worried. Belphegor is confident in his physical abilities, as his Retribution Tenet clone has Belphegor’s physical power allowing him to still boast about it despite being stuck in a throne. Belphegor is mostly unable to hold grudges or form relationships with anyone other than Belial(his deceased friend) and his comrades as most people are boring to him. The only thing that he has a genuine passion for is math, and this made him close to Mammon helping him count his hoard. He is also the few people that is allowed to touch Mammon’s hoard, and for helping him Mammon granted Belphegor the Throne of Bones. This the only real friendship Belphegor has, with Lucifer being the person he respects the most. Despite him not being able to hold many grudges, he still has them against the Goddess Clan for not letting him live in peace and forcing him to fight.

Belphegor is usually the quiet type, who seems to run things behind the scenes. On the battle field he never talks, as he lets his Tenet fight for him. The Archdemon usually is in charge along with Azazel in the magic affairs of the order due to his high intelligence and his Tenet also does the heavy lifting as he is the physically strongest Archdemon. He is quite proud being both intelligent and strong but his strength is also a curse. Ever since he lost the ability to move without draining energy from others, he has grown very bitter which is a reason for him mostly being quiet. He wishes to be able to move again with his own body instead of only letting a shadow clone act out his actions.

║╟╤╦╤╦╤╦╣║

Flaws

▷His disinterest in most things. It is what caused him to be cast out from the Goddess Clan for not joining a side despite being a warrior, seen as a defect and traitor. He only listens to things ordered of him by Lucifer as he believes Lucifer is powerful enough to achieve his goals.

Fears

▷The Forest Grace, as it opposes his necromancy magic by giving things life.

Desires

▷To live quietly and peacefully without anyone demanding something from him, and to not be restrained by his curse. To do this he must eliminate the Goddess Clan.

Loves

▷Exercise, despite him wanting to live a quiet life, he still wants the freedom of exercise and likes working out.

Hates

▷Taking orders, he does not mind taking orders from Lucifer, but anyone else he does not want to take orders from since he only respects Lucifer.

▷Like many Demons, Belphegor hates The Goddess Clan. Belphegor being a fallen Goddess has a particular hatred for the Goddess Clan as he finds he was cast out unfairly.

What he wants most right now

▷To conquer Britannia for the Demon Clan.

Regrets

▷He has no real regrets

Most embarrassing moment

▷When he was restricted to his throne. All his impressive physical abilities were meaningless to someone who would quickly get too tired to move.

Insecurities

▷His altered appearance, as upon becoming a Demon he became an Armor demon like Galand and Pump. Since it’s quite normal he isn’t an odd ball out in the Demon World but he himself is still unsettled by it.

Person he respects the most

▷Lucifer, as he was the leader of the rebels against the Supreme Deity. Hating the Goddess Clan as much as Belphegor does, he respects Lucifer’s passion and hatred for the winged clan.

Person he doesn’t want to make an enemy of

▷He doesn’t mind making an enemy of anyone.

General description

▷Belphegor is a large armor demon, roughly the same size as Galand. His armor consists of many overlapping plates, and it appears to be silver blackened by smoke and stained by blood. His eyes are bright purple, and reflect his hateful soul as they burn like hellfire and cause discomfort into anyone that gazed in them. He has many swords stuck in his back, but they don’t seem to phase him whenever he sits on his throne or stands up to fight. He has cloth tied around his waist obscuring some of his legs much like a tribal chief, and has organic demon wings much like a bat’s.

Why were they not mentioned in the canon of the show?

▷Born to a family of veteran warriors, Belphegor’s parents had high expectations of him. He was raised by a family that were proud warriors of the Goddess Clan’s army, and were a family that valued hard work and combat. They taught Belphegor from a young age that he should be diligent, and train hard to become a strong warrior. When he was just a child he already displayed immense physical abilities, with extreme speed, powerful blows and incredible strength. The young child was worked to the bone as his parents had a strict schedule for him every day, and he was never truly able to do anything he wanted. While other Goddess children played, he would be training with his father and instructors. Instead of going outside and explore the Celestial Realm he was kept in a strict specific area; his house and any training settlement. Belphegor began to resent his parents as he got older, never being able to do anything he wanted. He never had the opportunity to explore his interests or meet other people. He never even had anyone to call his friend.

This did not mean Belphegor didn’t like fighting. He loved the fighting, he just didn’t love being forced to without him having a say in it. Belphegor took a liking to fighting with a spear. His father wanted him to use a hammer or any other blunt weapon as he thought someone with Belphegor’s kind of strength should wield those weapons. But Belphegor refused and wielded spears in battle, wielding them to deadly effect. As soon as he was an old enough teenager Belphegor was forced to by his parents to become a warrior in the armies. His strength soon became well recognized among his peers and soon caught the attention of his superiors. He might lack the magical powers required to become an Archangel but his physical skills made him one of the highest ranking warriors at such a young age. When reaching adulthood, Belphegor’s parents were proud of him, but yet they kept pushing him. They now wanted to focus even more on training his magic power as they wanted him to become an Archangel. But this was too much for Belphegor, and he had enough. He refused his father’s wishes much to the latter’s anger. The Goddess and his parents got into a massive fight, that ended in Belphegor abandoning his family. He thought he was free, but he could not run away from his duty as a warrior.

Not long after, Belphegor was on a hill enjoying a morning of peace. He had one day for once where he did not have to fight or do anything for anyone. Belphegor was happy for the first time in a long time, before he saw flashes of light. Explosions and battle cries in the distance. He looked down the hill to the Celestial City, it was being attacked by traitorous Goddesses that rebelled against the Deity. Belphegor did not care about the motivations of the rebels, but he also did not want to help the Goddesses as he has felt pressured his entire life to fight for them. He refused to help either side, and watched the battle unfold. The Goddesses ended up repelling the attack, and taking the rebels captive. When returning to the Celestial city Belphegor was also captured much to his surprise. The confused Goddess was brought before a war council where he was put in front of the Deity along with three other Goddesses, one of them being the famous Samael, brother of one of the Archangels and the strongest non archangel warrior. The three Goddesses were accused of rebelling against the Deity, but Belphegor committed a slightly different crime. He refused to fight on either side, and since he refused to fight for the Deity he was seen as a slothful traitor and sentenced the same as the three Goddesses. They would be banished to the Goddess Realm, each cast off with a lightning bolt. Attempting to escape, Belphegor was able to turn around but was hit by the bolt before being able to do anything else and was sent to the Demon World.

In the Realm of Demons, the four Goddesses gathered together after the weaker Goddesses were picked off by the Demon World’s creatures. They noticed that the lightning bolt they were cast out with had given them a sort of curse. Belphegor felt physical energy drain out of him quick, and had to get help from Beelzebub at one point to even stand. Belphegor started to hate the Deity for her cruelty and unfairness towards him and followed Lucifer, now believing firmly in his plans and ideals. When discovered by Meliodas and brought to the Demon King, Samael explained what they have been through. He told the Demon King about how much they hate the Goddess Clan and that they would gladly help the Demon Clan eradicate them. The Demon King recognized their powers and gave them a Tenet, a dark power much like a Grace. Belphegor was given the Retribution Tenet and a throne capable of levitation. The retribution Tenet allowed him to still utilize his physical skills through his clone. Upon becoming a pure Demon through the Tenet and the prolonged exposure to Miasma Belphegor awakened his magic power. He obtained the Dark power to demonize objects, magicless beings and raise zombified corpses. Belphegor would become an armor Demon, one that even Galand respected. The Archdemon and the rest of his comrades fought in the Holy War against the Archangels.

Belphegor in the Holy War sat on his throne raising the dead around him to replenish armies and protect himself, as he used his Retribution Clone to defeat his enemies. But suddenly he felt the arrival of a power opposite to his own. One that gave life and purified the Darkness. Archangel Raphael had stepped onto the battle field. Her Grace of Forest healed everyone around her and destroyed Belphegor’s zombies with its divine power. Angered by the rivaling power, he demanded to know who she was. The Demon could not move and so used his Retribution Clone to act on his behalf as he sat back on his throne floating above hundreds of fallen warriors. The Archangel told him about who she was, telling him that he had once deployed a group of Demons. One of those demons killed her little sister and that she spared one in return for the name of the one who sent them. Belphegor only laughed, before telling her that he was glad he could hurt one of the Archangels in this way, which sent Raphael into a rage. She and the Retribution clone fought as Belphegor’s true power was canceled out by her Grace. But the Retribution Tenet had been absorbing the physical energy of the Goddesses he had been slaying, and could temporarily make his own body move again. The two engaged in a battle where Belphegor was able to use his immense physical strength and his true magic power being able to focus it more and being able to use it against her Grace. Raphael’s drive for vengeance had her fighting so aggressively that Belphegor burned through his energy fast, and so she defeated him when he could no longer move. The only reason Belphegor escaped was because of his Retribution Tenet saving him. Raphael and Belphegor would meet multiple times more during the Holy War, but at the end Raphael and the other Archangels sealed him and the Archdemons in the Eyes of God. Belphegor sleeps in the Goddess Amber, waiting to be released. And when he is, he plans to have the Goddess Clan on their knees begging for redemption and mercy. And he will not grant them Retribution.

Seven Deadly Sins

Main Character Index | Main Characters | Meliodas | Liones | Fairy Clan | Giant Clan | Demon Clan | Goddess Clan

The titular Seven Deadly Sins and the main accompanying characters who travel with and aid them.

Beware of Unmarked Spoilers.


    open/close all folders 

The Seven Deadly Sins were the strongest and cruelest order of knights in all of Britannia, formed by seven brutal criminals, who had all been convicted for grievous crimes and had carved the symbols of seven beasts onto their bodies. After having been framed for murdering the Great Holy Knight, they were disbanded. The Sins were later branded as traitors and villains.


    Tropes pertaining to the Sins in general 

  • The Ageless: A number of the Sins appear not to age one single bit regardless of how much time has passed.
    • Meliodas appears to not have aged at all throughout and is at least over 3000 years. This is apparently due to being a demon however even then he seems like a special case as seen in a brief flashback with his apparently younger brother, Estarossa. In it, Estarossa was clearly younger back then while Meliodas looked no different than he does in present times. Apart from a different demon mark, Meliodas looked completely the same. It's then later revealed that this because of a curse the Demon King placed on him that prevents him from properly dying.
    • King, thanks to being a fairy, has not aged one bit in appearance in over 700 years. Although he can transform himself into an older form if he so chooses.
    • Ban, thanks to drinking from the fountain of eternal life, remains the same age he was at the time he drank it. He can still grow a shaggy beard and longer hair over time though.
    • Gowther has not aged because he's a doll.
    • Merlin has not aged because she had suspended her own body's time with her magic in order to pursue her insatiable hunger for knowledge without being bogged down by the ravages of time.
    • Diane and Escanor are the only Sins to subvert this. Diane has aged much slower than humans over the span of some centuries due to being a giantess with a long lifespan. Escanor meanwhile, who is the only clear cut human in the group, has aged normally.
  • Ambiguously Human: The majority of the Sins are beings that resemble regular humans but aren't. As of the first Fanbook only two sins Escanor and Ban before he drank the Fountain of Youth have been stated to be human and Merlin hasn't had her species listed at all.
  • Ambiguously Evil: Due to part of the mystery surrounding them, a number of the Sins have been presented in a manner that questions whether they're really heroes or are truly the criminals that they've been labeled as.
  • Amplifier Artifact: Each of the Sins is supposed to have a sacred treasure, a holy weapon that allows them to draw on even more of their innate power. At the start of the series, King, Escanor, Gowther, and Merlin kept theirs but Diane lost hers, Ban had his stolen, and Meliodas sold his. Both Diane and Meliodas though later recover their weapons over the course of the series.
  • Animal Motifs: Each of the Sins has a motif of an animal that is either usually associated or stereotyped with their respective sin. This is primarily presented as their monikers and tattoos.
    • For Meliodas the Dragon's Sin of Wrath, it's dragons which relate to his sin based on them being very wrathful and destructive. His broken sword has a dragon handle design and he has fire based powers, a common power of dragons. The motif also relates to him being a demon as dragons in the Medieval folklore were equated to demons. Of special note, his dragon tattoo design resembles an Ouroboros, which in some cases is depicted with a dragon instead of a serpent. The symbol is associated with cyclicality, something that Meliodas seems to be associated with as evidenced by some of his closest friends apparently being reincarnations.
    • For Diane the Serpent's Sin of Envy, it's snakes which relate to her sin based on them being seen as symbols of envy.
    • For Ban the Fox's Sin of Greed, it's foxes which relate to his sin based on the idea that they're seen as very sneaky and greedy thieves. Additionally, his surrogate father Zhivago was a thief who happened to be a werefox.
    • For King the Bear's Sin of Sloth, it's bears which relate to his sin based on the idea of them being rather slothful such as during long periods of hibernation. Bears while showing a lack of activity follows a form of pragmatism and predictability like when preying for food which can be reflected in King's practical way of fighting. Additionally, the second form of his spear is a giant teddy bear.
    • For Gowther the Goat's Sin of Lust, it's goats which relate to his sin based on them seen as a symbol of lust, such as the case with satyrs and other such similar creatures.
    • For Merlin the Boar's Sin of Gluttony, it's pigs which relate to her sin based on Gluttonous Pigs. Additionally, she has a rapport with Hawk the pig.
    • For Escanor the Lion's Sin of Pride, it's lions which relate to his sin based on them being seen as symbols of pride.
  • Anti-Hero Team: The Sins were actually criminals that joined the order for their own reasons, and a number of them are good people at heart. A few of them however aren't exactly the nicest of people.
  • The Atoner: A number of the Sins joined the order to atone for their supposed crimes.
  • Badass Crew: Every member of the Sins is a badass as per their job description.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: The majority of the Sins have abilities that would otherwise belong to villainous characters. These include among them, Meliodas having demonic powers; Ban having a Power Parasite ability; King having an ability to increase things such as wounds and poisons, and a Taken for Granite ability; and Gowther having brainwashing powers. A number of them also are Persons Of Mass Destruction and some have abilities that are practically overpowered.
  • Beware the Nice Ones / Beware the Silly Ones: The Sins are generally nice guys and at times very silly. Some are jerks but they are usually good people at heart. But if you enrage them that is when you'll realize how dangerous they are.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: Meliodas (blonde), Diane (Brunette) and Gowther (redhead).
  • Black-and-Grey Morality: The Sins are, in general, sketchy anti-heroes, but the Ten Commandments are much worse.
  • Broken Pedestal: To a number of people who originally looked up to their order, they became this for their supposed crime of killing Great Holy Zaratras and attempt to overthrow the kingdom of Liones. Noteworthy among those who became disswayed with them is Gilthunder, Zaratras' son, however that turned out to be an act as knew the real culprit.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite being known as the strongest and cruelest order of knights, the Deadly Sins tend to be silly and don't take most fights quite seriously.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Each of the Sins revealed so far have a distinct colors via their attire that differentiates them.
    • Meliodas: Black and White
    • Diane: Yellow and Orange
    • Ban: Red
    • King: Blue Green and Orange
    • Gowther: White and Light Purple
    • Merlin: Violet and Blue
    • Escanor: Gold
  • Charm Point: The first Fanbook lists the charm points of each Sin.
    • Meliodas: His Idiot Hair
    • Diane: Her pig tails
    • Ban: His fangs
    • King: His bed hair
    • Gowther: His collarbone, apparently
    • Merlin: Her suspicious smile, apparently
    • Escanor: His shyness
  • Combat Pragmatist: Well, if an antagonist didn't bother bringing any help to fight the whole group, why let him fight you one at a time?
  • Dark and Troubled Past: A number of the Sins revealed so far have backstories, which paint them as more than simply Sin-themed criminals.
  • Doomed Hometown:
    • Danafor was pretty much Meliodas' home however due to certain circumstances, he in a fit of rage destroyed it completely, leaving only a massive crater behind. In reality though, the kingdom was pretty much already destroyed before he did this as most of its people had been slaughtered when Fraudrin and his forces invaded.
    • The Fairy King's Forest which was King's home was destroyed by a demon while he was away. It was only when he returned to it after the Sins had been framed that he learned that it had been long destroyed.
    • Merlin's home was Belialuin, the capital of wizards. It was razed as the result of Merlin deceiving both the Supreme Goddess and the Demon King.
    • A Q&A from Chapter 230 reveals vaguely that Escanor's home had been destroyed.
  • Elemental Powers: Most of the Deadly Sins shows some form of elemental abilities.
    • Meliodas: Fire
    • Diane: Earth
    • King: Plant
    • Gowther: Light
    • Escanor: Sun
  • Experienced Protagonist: At the start of the series, the Sins are already established Living Legends within the setting.
  • Facial Composite Failure: It's a Running Gag that the Sins' wanted posters either don't resemble them, due to their real-life appearance being different, or provide enough information to who or even what they really are.
  • Fighter, Mage, Thief: Meliodas, Merlin and Ban.
  • Frame-Up: Prior to the story, the Seven Deadly Sins were framed for killing the Great Holy Knight and Gilthunder's father, Zaratras, and trying to overthrow the kingdom. It's later revealed that two traitor Holy Knights framed the Sins for the evil deed. As a means of taking over the kingdom and using their scapegoats criminal fame to justify their conquest in preparation for the Holy War against them, when in reality each in their own way were instigating the resurrection of the Demon Clan.
  • The Force Is Strong with This One: All the Deadly Sins have the ability to sense the power levels of strong characters.
  • Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: The Sins are initially shown wearing full body armor, helmets included, but after each member is fully introduced, flashbacks involving them when they were still Holy Knights show them without either the helmets or armor. After they reunite and are sent on a mission to retrieve the abducted citizens, they return to wearing their armor, minus the helmets.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Due to being criminals, they get this a lot from the Holy Knights.
  • Hidden Depths: They are renowned for being a group of lethal individuals who serve the kingdom as penance for their 'crimes.' From what we see of Sins' various backstories and their supposed crimes, the story isn't quite that simple. To wit, Diane was framed for her sin by the Holy Knights, Ban is completely innocent of his sin, (but simply never denied that he was guilty) and King's sin was something that was out of his control. Gowther's sin ends up being a rather tragic example of Not What It Looks Like. (In fact, in that particular instance, it was just about the opposite of what it looked like)
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: A number of the Sins have experienced one form or another wherein they've lost their memories.
    • When the Sins were framed, Meliodas' memories during certain parts of said event were taken away by Merlin to prevent him from becoming angry. These were later restored to him.
    • King lost his memories when he suffered a wound. This caused him to live with Diane for the next 500 years not knowing of his responsibilities as the Fairy King. He gradually regained these over the time the two had spent together but the damage caused by his memory lost was done.
    • Related to King's backstory, King erased Diane's memories related to him after he learned about what happened to his friend Helbram. She later regains her memories when he saves her from Helbram. She however later loses her memories of her time as a member of the Sins due to Gowther using his technique Lost World on her in their battle against one another. Thankfully, the human Gowther of the past rectifies this later on.
    • Gowther lost his memories of being a member of the Ten Commandments thanks to his own commandment powers according to Fraudrin.
  • Let's Split Up, Gang!:
    • The Sins split up when they came across the corpse of the Great Holy Knight, Zaratras, and were surrounded by the knights of the kingdom. A main plot point of the story is Putting the Band Back Together after a ten year separation.
    • After saving Liones, the Sins that were gathered then split up again. Ban, joined alongside by Jericho, quits the Sins to pursue a way to permanently resurrect Elaine, although in reality he actually does so out of shame for betraying Meliodas. Meliodas, Gowther, and Merlin along with some others all attempt to locate Escanor. King thanks to Oslow's teleportation powers, switches between traveling with Ban's group and Meliodas'. Diane meanwhile runs off thanks to Gowther taking away her memory in their battle with each other. In the midst of all this though, Escanor is found by Ban.
    • Again after The Commandments of the Demon Clan had done away with Meliodas beginning their conquest of Britannia, the band had been semi-split up during the later part of the story. A comatose sin of wrath was being watched over by by Elizabeth at the Boar Hat, Ban and Escanor were at the kingdom of Liones defending it against the commandments assault, Merlin didn't show up till towards the end of the battle, Gowther had been imprisoned due to the revelation of his identity as a former Commandment while King and Diane were found bathing together in parts unknown.
  • Let's You and Him Fight: Over the course of the series there have been instances wherein individual Sins battled with one another. The reasons for these fights have varied from enemies manipulating them, misunderstandings between Sins, to individual Sins being driven by their own personal motivations and morals to fight one another. Some of these fights have been mere friendly brawls and some have been serious deathmatches.
    • Meliodas and Ban have a long-standing friendly rivalry, although at one point Ban was tasked by the Goddess Clan with killing Meliodas for undisclosed reasons.
    • Meliodas and Diane fought in an early chapter due to the hallucination magic of an enemy knight.
    • King was introduced trying to kill Ban the Undead because of a misunderstanding, and almost succeeded.
    • Gowther has caused conflicts among the Sins because of his Mind Rape tendencies and Blue-and-Orange Morality, forcing Diane and Escanor to chastise him severely at different times.
    • Averted with Merlin, who tricks Ban into doing thousands of push-ups when he drunkenly attempts to fight her.
    • Meliodas and Escanor nearly kill each other when Meliodas loses his memory, reverts back to his "Assault Mode" and threatens to wipe out the rest of the Sins. Escanor, true to character, is simply grateful for the opportunity to prove that he's the strongest.
  • Living Legend: They are renowned for their strength and for being criminals who have committed the most heinous of crimes.
  • Love Dodecahedron: Involving some of the Sins and other characters.
    • Meliodas is in love with Elizabeth however it was questioned if he was simply projecting his previous lover Liz unto her since she resembles her greatly both in looks and name. Elizabeth likewise fell in love with Meliodas despite his lecherous actions towards her. She doesn't really get it but feels nostalgic as if she's known him for a very long time. The truth behind this though is that Elizabeth is actually the reincarnation of Meliodas' lover who has constantly been reincarnated over the past 3,000 years. Diane is initially in love with Meliodas at the start of the story but her feelings are unreciprocated. Zaneli is also in love with Meliodas but like Diane, her feelings are unreciprocated.
    • Furthering complicating the Love Dodecahedron involving Meliodas and Elizabeth, there is also what at first seems to be a Sibling Triangle with Meliodas' brother, Estarossa, who fell instantly in love with Elizabeth the moment he met. He actually fell in love with Elizabeth over 3,000 years ago back in her first incarnation as a goddess however for some reason, both of his and Elizabeth's memories of each other seem to be off. It's then latter revealed that Estarossa is not actually Meliodas' brother at all but actually the Archangel Mael who was made into Meliodas' brother by the real Gowther's memory magic in an attempt to stop the Holy War 3,000 years ago. Mael nonetheless was in love with Elizabeth and greatly jealous of Meliodas. As if that wasn't enough though, Jelamet, a goddess who claimed to be Elizabeth's Best Friend was in love with Mael.
    • In regards to Diane's relationships aside from the aforementioned one with Meliodas, King is in love with her but his feelings are unreciprocated and the extent of their relationship is complicated. Diane decides though to return King's feelings upon regaining her memories of their shared past, however due to her not making her feelings more clear to King, it winds up hurting their relationship. That however gets put on hold when Gowther erases her memories again. Fortunately, she once again regains her memories and she and King have a Relationship Upgrade. Howzer also fell in love with Diane but his feelings are much less unreciprocated.
    • On a smaller Love Triangle scale, there is Ban. Ban and Elaine are in love with each other despite life and death separating them. Complicating this however is that Jericho, despite initially refusing to accept it herself, has fallen in love with Ban after he saved her from being transformed into a demon.
    • There is also an Imaginary Love Triangle. Merlin sees Arthur as her hope and deeply cares for him. Escanor interprets this as her having feelings for Arthur in a similar manner Escanor has for her. This of course deeply saddens him. A Q&A from Chapter 257 though states that Merlin's relationship with Arthur is merely a master pupil one.
  • Magic Knight: The majority of the Sins are incredible strong fighters who can also use magical abilities.
  • The Magnificent: Each of the Sins have a title based on the crimes they supposedly did.
  • Man of Kryptonite: The Sins are described as being formed to counter the Ten Commandments.
    • Ban's love to Elaine makes him immune to Merascylla's Faith curse.
    • Escanor's Pride makes him unable to hate his enemy, only pitying them as they are so much beneath him, thus making him immune to Estarossa's Love.
    • Merlin's status as The Ageless makes her immune to Gray Road's Rapid Aging curse. She also has the blessings she received from the Supreme Goddess that make her immune to the Ten Commandments curses in general.
  • Mr. Vice Guy: Apart from being literally themed around vices, a number of the Sins have rather outright vices, yet are overall good people at heart.
    • Meliodas is a Chivalrous Pervert who constantly molests Elizabeth and only her for some reason. He does this so much that he could easily be confused as representing the Sin of Lust.
    • Diane is often quick to anger out of jealously that she is ironically more wrathful in personality than Meliodas, the actual Sin of Wrath.
    • Ban is a guy who would steal anything that isn't nailed down and is more than willing to resort to murder his opponents.
    • Gowther due to being emotionless has Blue-and-Orange Morality which makes him do very questionable things.
    • Merlin dresses in one of the most ridiculously stripperiffic outfits compared to the other Sins and most other characters in the series in general.
    • Escanor during the day is a Smug Super with a huge ego.
  • Mysterious Past: From the moment that they're introduced, much of the individual pasts of most of the Sins have been shrouded in mystery. Details like what exactly were their individual crimes, and who or even what are they are have so far been completely shrouded. In fact, there's even a rule within their order that enforces this trope amongst themselves. Over the course of the series, each of the individual Sins' pasts have slowly been revealed.
  • Nice Guy: Suprisingly, most of them are actually this. Even the ones that aren't at their very worst tend towards Jerk with a Heart of Gold, with Ban being the primary example. Meliodas, King, nighttime!Escanor, and even Merlin are straight examples, Diane is a big softie outside of her Tsundere moments, Gowther has his moments when he's not misreading the situation or otherwise being Obliviously Evil, and even daytime!Escanor seems nice in a patronizing kind of way.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: While the majority of the Sins revealed so far are capable of taking extreme amounts of damage, only a few of them are completely invulnerable to physical damage.
    • Ban thanks to his immortality, is completely invulnerable to attacks that would be otherwise completely fatal. Only specialized attacks hurt him.
    • Gowther, while apparently not to the degree of Ban, is for some reason invulnerable to bone cracking attacks.
  • Odd Friendship: All of them.Despite their clashing personalities and backgrounds, the implication that the Sins are more or less True Companions is definitely there.
  • One-Man Army: Each of the Deadly Sins are able to take down a group of Holy Knights with ease and become even more powerful with their Sacred Treasure.
  • The Order: The Seven Deadly Sins are an order made up of conscripted criminals formed by King Baltra Liones. They are separate from the Holy Knights and answer directly to the king.
  • Party of Representatives: As noted by Gowther, the main protagonists consists of individuals of different races and dispositions such as there being an immortal, a giant, a fairy, and a pig to name a few. This is moreso the case for the Sins themselves.
  • Personality Blood Types: The first Fanbook identifies the blood types of some of the Sins.
    • The often wild Ban and Meliodas are both Type B.
    • The sweet but tends to be jealous Diane is Type O.
    • The thinkers King and Merlin, and the "split-personality" Escanor, are all Type AB.
    • Gowther meanwhile has no blood type.
  • Power Level: Each of the Seven Deadly Sins have power levels over 3000. Each Sin's overall power level is the sum of three individual stats. These stats are Power which measures their magical abilities, Strength which measures their physical abilities, and Spirit which measures their willpower in battle. The power levels of which are known are as follows.
    • Meliodas' level is 3370 with his individual stats being Power: 400, Strength: 960, and Spirit: 2010. Upon his full powers being returned to him, his level is 32500. The second Fanbook gives his individual stats at this 32500 level with them being Power: 2700, Strength: 27700, and Spirit: 2100. After he returns from the dead, his level is 60000.
    • Gowther's level is 3100 with his individual stats being Power: 1300, Strength: 500, and Spirit: 1300. After regaining his memories and emotions, his level rose back to what it originally was over three thousand years ago.
    • Diane's level is 3250 with her individual stats being Power: 900, Strength: 1870, and Spirit: 480. When shrunk down to the size of a regular human though, her Strength is lowered to 950. After her and King's trial from Dolor and Gloxinia, her level at regular human size rose up to 15100. Furthermore, the more she dances in the midst of conflict, the more her level rises.
    • Merlin's level is 4710 with her individual stats being Power: 3540, Strength: 70, and Spirit: 1100.
    • King's level is 4190 with the second Fanbook revealing his individual stats as Power: 3370, Strength: 0, and Spirit: 820. When releasing his sacred treasure after imbibing the sacred tree's energies however, his power doubles beyond that of an Albion which is 5500. After his and Diane's trial from Gloxinia and Dolor, his base level rose up to 41600.
    • Ban's level is 3220 with the second Fanbook revealing his individual stats as Power: 1380, Strength: 930, and Spirit: 910. Through physical hunt he can bolster his power further, exceeding that of a weakened Galan the Truth's level of 20000 momentarily.
    • Escanor's level fluctuates depending on the time of the day. At night, his level is at a mere 15 with his three individual stats each evenly being a 5. Closer to noon, his power rises to levels of 50055, 50060, and beyond. Later, a number was revealed of what level he would be practically at noon. That level being 114000. The second Fanbook though lists his level at high noon as simply immeasurable. We later get to see this noon form, The One, which can not only defeat the sons of the Demon King effortlessly, but can go toe to toe with the Demon King himself.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: The group consists of a number of characters with extremely eccentric personalities.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Meliodas and Ban can dish out a rapid amount of punches.
  • Really 700 Years Old: A number of the Sins revealed so far have been revealed to several centuries old despite their looks.
    • Meliodas appears to be at least over 3000 years old despite looking like a child.
    • King due to being a fairy, is according to the first Fanbook 1300 years old despite like Meliodas looking like a child.
    • Diane due to being a giant, is around 750 years old according to the first Fanbook despite her looks comparable to that of a 15 year old human girl.
    • Merlin is much older than she looks due to having suspended her own body's time with her magic and revealing that her true name has all but been forgotten. A Q&A from Chapter 219 further reveals that she was 30 when she stopped her body's time. Merlin is also at least somewhere around 3,000 years or younger as revealed by a comment Elizabeth makes while her mind was in flux as a result of having regained her Past-Life Memories of every single one of her past incarnations. In her unstable state, Elizabeth says she hardly recognizes Merlin as the latter was such a young girl the last time they met in one of Elizabeth's previous lives.
    • Gowther due to being a doll is actually far older than he looks. He is at least over 3000 years old as he was a member of the Ten Commandments back then. That being said, the cover page of chapter 221 of the manga implies that he might be even older than that. In the cover page, the male Sins are shown with their ages beside them. Gowther's age however is simply stated as "?" years old.
  • Recruiting the Criminal: Years after having been branded as criminals after their frameup, they are being reunited in order to battle the Holy Knights and save the kingdom.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: The Sins are either based and named after characters from the Arthurian mythos, as well as have some aspects related to the myths and related media.
    • Meliodas is based and named after Tristan's father and the second king of Lyonesse in the Arthurian myths.
    • Diane is apparently named after Diane, mother of Dyonas and grandmother of Vivienne in the Vulgate cycle of the Arthurian mythos.
    • Ban is based and named after King Ban, Lancelot's father in the Arthurian myths. His Sacred Treasure, which is named in the first Fanbook, Courechouse is named after the sword that King Ban possessed in the mythos.
    • King's real name, Harlequin is the name which a character named Hellekin came to be better known as. Hellekin was a fairy king who became Morgan Le Fay's lover. On another note, King's weapon is apparently named after Chastiefol from La Chevalier du Papegau which is the name of King Arthur's sword rather than Excalibur.
    • Gowther is based and named after Sir Gowther of medieval lore who is said to be the half brother of Merlin of the Arthurian mythos.
    • Merlin is obviously based and named after the most famous wizard in the Arthurian legends. Meanwhile, Merlin's sacred treasure the crystal ball Aldan is named after Aldan who in Welsh tradition is Merlin's mother. Furthermore according to the first Fanbook, Aldan's full title is Morning Star Aldan. While it's not an actual morning star, the term coincidentally can also refer to the Devil who in some interpretations is Merlin's father. Her birthplace as revealed in the second Fanbook is apparently Belialuin and appears to be named after a demon which would make it a Meaningful Name as well given the reaction of the Ten Commandments had when she revealed the name to them.
    • Escanor is based and named after Escanor, a knight of the Round Table who kidnapped a serving maid from Arthur's court and killed by Sir Gawain for it. His Sacred Treasure, which is first named in the first Fanbook, Rhitta is apparently named after agiant who in folklore wanted to take King Arthur's beard to add to his cloak made from beards of kings he defeated, only to be defeated by Arthur himself. His birthplace as revealed in the second Fanbook is called the Castellio Kingdom and appears to be loosely named after Castile, a kingdom in Spain mentioned in a number of the Arthur mythos stories.
  • Rule #1: There are a set of rules that go with being a Sin.
    • Rule number three is "A Sin shall ask no questions of another member's sin" which Ban revealed during the Vaizel Fighting Festival. The rule explains why a number of them don't know initially certain details about other members despite them being comrades, with many having backgrounds that are heavily intertwined with those of other Sins.
    • Rule number four is "Whenever a Sin is in trouble, the rest will come together to aid them with all their strength" which was revealed when all seven of the Sins were finally reunited. The rule is basically for the Sins to help each other out when one of them is in deep distress as best demonstrated when the Sins immediately went off to search and help Gowther after he instinctively fled from seeing his magic heart which he had discarded.
    • Rule number five was revealed in the "The Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of Holy War", an anime mini-series which features content written by Nakaba Suzuki the author himself. The rule is that "Grudges between Sins will be resolved through fighting each other." This explains why the Sins tend to fight among themselves from time to time.
    • Rule number six like the fifth rule was revealed in the anime mini-series. The rule is that "Sins killing one another is to be stopped by the other Sins at all costs." At all costs includes allowing the other Sins to go all out on the Sin committing the offense. The rule basically dissuades the Sins from seriously killing one another when they have fights between themselves. Fights between Sins are thus allowed as long as they're not to the death.
  • The Scapegoat: They were framed for the murder of Zaratras, the great holy knight. Being a group of incredibly dangerous former criminals presumably made them the obvious choice to be this, while it also effectively neutralized them as a threat.
  • Seven Deadly Sins: Each of the Sins has a mark representing a sin, and has powers related to that sin. Their personalities and back stories, though, play with the sin they represent.
    • Wrath: Instead of a stereotypical warmongering Blood Knight, Meliodas is a trickster-like Mellow Fellow who is often seen fondling Elizabeth one way or another. In reality however, he is the typeyou don't want to see wrathful. His past with what happened with Danafor involved his wrath going completely out of hand on epic proportions. Because of what happened, he is generally a pacifist by nature unless push comes to shove. Due to a curse placed by his father the Demon King, Meliodas unfortunately becomes more of a typical wrathful Blood Knight as his emotions are stripped away each time he comes back from death.
    • Envy: Diane is generally envious of regular sized girls as she can't interact normally with Meliodas. In reality though, what she really envies deep down are people who are in love. With her abilities, she's considered as a prodigy even among her fellow giants, basically someone who others would be envious of. Her backstory involves her being accused of killing her fellow giantess Matrona out of jealousy. In reality, the real perpetrators of the crime were some Liones knights who wanted to be the envy of others via killing the two giantess, and she was made a scapegoat for the whole mess that occurred.
    • Greed: Ban is a thief that would steal anything that isn't nailed down. His backstory, however, is a subversion of greed as he decided not to steal the elixir of immortality upon learning the truth behind it and even unselfishly tried to save Elaine and it from a demon. He unfortunately was blamed for the destruction for the forest on accusation of greed.
    • Sloth: King carries around a pillow and generally floats around. His so called human form also looks like a slothful fat guy. In addition, he is so pathetically weak by himself that his strength heavily relies on his Sacred Treasure and magic. His backstory involves his dereliction of his responsibilities to keep the peace between the humans and fairies. However, it is a subversion as in reality he didn't willingly neglect them, he just suffered from amnesia for a long time and only Remembered Too Late. Nonetheless he was accused of sloth via doing nothing. Him being constantly too late to do the right thing is a bane of his as he was too late to save his sister who took up his duties to guard the elixir of life, and he was too late to protect Diane.
    • Lust: Gowther is an extremely effeminate looking man but he has a very emotionless personality that lacks, among other things, traits normally stereotyped with lust. His powers are more light and mental based rather than physical but the way they are used invoke themes of lust. Two noteworthy techniques of his are a Lotus-Eater Machine power to trap opponents with illusions to show their heart's desire, and a power that basically Mind Rapes a person. Also while he doesn't lust in the traditional sense, he does however long to acquire feelings to a degree that it could be considered as lust. Then there's the fact that he's actually the "Selflessness" of the Ten Commandments or more specifically the real Gowther who created and used him as an avatar was, a thing that greatly contrasts lust. His supposed crime that made him a Sin involved the intimate relationship he had with the elder sister of Baltra Liones, Nadja, before he threw away his magic heart along with his feelings and memories. Due to a misunderstanding, it looked like he had raped and killed the princess but in reality what really happened was the exact opposite of a lustful crime.
    • Gluttony: Merlin is a sexy stripperificLady of Black Magic that even the coverpage of chapter 85 lampshades by mistaking her for the Sin of Lust. Her Sin title and her moniker of Crimson Pig are clear references to the Gluttonous Pig concept however, she isn't even remotely close to anything that could be associated as a Big Eater or anything else related to overconsumption of food. She does though have an insatiable hunger except it's for knowledge rather than food. Her hunger for knowledge is so insatiable in fact that she used a spell to suspend her own body's time in order to pursue her endless research without the worry of a normal limited lifespan. Additionally, she has an over excess of magical power and spells. All of which is aided by her magic ability Infinity, an extremely hax power that allows her spells to remain for eternity unless she herself dispels them. Then there is her backstory in which instead of choosing between the set of blessings offered by the Demon King and those offered by the Supreme Goddess, she took all of the blessings offered by both for herself.
    • Pride: At night, Escanor is basically a pathetically weak skinny polite wimp that constantly apologizes for his sorry ass existence, the complete opposite of pride. Despite this, he however has a honorable sense of pride in doing things. During the day, he's a buffed up beefcake filled to the brim with arrogance that becomes even more powerful as the day becomes noon. Regardless of all the pride he might spew however, he is somewhat of a humble character at least in regards to women. He Wouldn't Hit a Girl directly by his own choice and in regards to his love for Merlin, he sees her as a light that he'd humbly and fully devote himself to regardless whether or not his feelings are reciprocated. In a sense, Escanor adheres to a form of humble knightly chivalry found common in classical Arthurian and medieval lore which upholds women and their honor without guarantee reward for oneself. Furthermore considering certain aspects of his character, he is both at the same time the worst of the Sins in regards to how ridiculously strong he can get when compared to the rest, and not the worst in regards to his personality especially at the night that's clearly more morally grounded than those of the rest.
  • The Team:
    • The Leader: Meliodas being the captain of the Sins is this.
    • The Lancer: In the first part of the series when the Sins were being reunited, Ban filled this role as Meliodas' second-in-command and was generally Meliodas' foil. In the past and after the first part, this role is filled by Merlin who Meliodas is wary of, a sentiment she also has of him.
    • The Smart Guy: Three of the Sins share this distinction. King though is more of the Squishy Wizard definition, Gowther's more of The Spock both in analysis and behavior, and Merlin's a Lady of Black Magic.
    • The Big Guy: Both Diane and day-Escanor fill this role. Diane's the biggest of the Sins and is one of the most physical based. Escanor during the day, especially around noon, has strength and powers that easily surpasses that of any of the other Sins.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: The Sins don't exactly always get along with one another. Usually it goes to a point wherein one Sin outright fights another. Meliodas however sees this as a strength rather than a weakness.

    Meliodas: "The Seven Deadly Sins' greatest strength is its utter lack of teamwork!!"

  • Trademark Favorite Food: The first Fanbook lists the favorite food of each Sin. To Hawk's chagrin, a couple of them like pork best, but they're definitely not going to eat him or his mother.
    • Meliodas: Pork simmered in ale
    • Diane: Pork
    • Ban: Anything actually except Meliodas' cooking
    • King: Cheese
    • Gowther: Not really interested in the subject actually
    • Merlin: Raisins
    • Escanor: Meat during the day, Vegetables during the night
  • Trading Bars for Stripes: To atone for their original crimes, the Sins were offered the choice to become knights that answer directly to the king of Liones. As the story progressed, it's later revealed that not all of the Sins are criminals in a certain sense. Ban, King, and Diane were convicted for crimes that they weren't directly responsible for and were freed when they decided to join the order. Escanor, Meliodas, and Merlin meanwhile were all free prior to joining the order and instead joined for reasons other than in exchange for freedom. Escanor mainly joined the order when he met and fell in love with Merlin. As for Meliodas and Merlin, not only were they free and not considered as criminals per se when they joined the order, they were the very ones who thought up the idea for the Seven Deadly Sins in order to battle against the Ten Commandments. Meliodas though considers the Danafor incident to be his sin.
  • True Companions: The Sins (for the most part) actually seem quite attached to one another.
  • Two Girls to a Team: Diane and Merlin are the only female Sins.
  • "Wanted!" Poster: All the Sins have one.
  • The Worf Effect: Meliodas, Merlin and Diane, all three with their Sacred Treasures have been easily beaten by Galan, a member of the Ten Commandments who was not even at full power to show how much of a threat they are.
    • Later on when the Commandments had recovered some of their magic, Galan and another demon are both effortlessly slain by day-Escanor, the final Sin to be revealed.

"Serpent's Sin of Envy" Diane

Voiced by:Aoi Yūki (Japanese), Erica Mendez (English), Cecilia Gómez (Latin American)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/diane_anime_character_design.png

Diane is a member of the Seven Deadly Sins, the Serpent's Sin of Envy. She is also a member of the Giant Clan.

About 700 years ago before the start of the story, Diane left her home of Megadozer and rescued King. For the next 500 years, they spent their lives together and fell in love with one another. Due to circumstances involving King however, he had to erase her memories and leave her. None the wiser, she returned back to her people to be trained under a fellow giantess Matrona. Later about 16 years before the start of the story, Diane met and fell in love in Meliodas, not realizing she was unintentionally misdirecting her true feelings. She then was involved in a plot by some vile Liones knights who intended to kill her and Matrona for glory. Although she survived the incident, Diane was made into a scapegoat for the massacre that had happened. Meliodas fortunately intervened at her trial and recruited her into the Sins.

After the incident wherein the Sins were framed, Diane went into hiding in the Forest of White Dreams, forcing the resident Prankster Imps to aid her. When Meliodas and company came to the forest, she immediately rejoined the Sins.


  • All of the Other Reindeer: Derided by her own kind for not embracing their Proud Warrior Race culture.
  • Amnesiac Lover: Twice. She and King were in love with each other long ago, but he had to erase her memories once he was forced to leave her. She briefly recovers her memories of him, but can't tell him how she feels because he followed Ban in his journey. By the time he comes back, her memories are messed up because of Gowther as a result of their confrontation and she quickly forgets King again. Ultimately, her amnesia is reversed. Diane finally gains back all her memories from the original Gowther- the creator of the doll Gowther who took them in the first place- whom she met when she went back in time as part of the trial given to her and King by Dolor and Gloxinia. The human Gowther possessed all the same magical abilities as his creation and had a compassionate mindset which knew the difference between right and wrong, so he blessed Diane with the restoration of every memory his doll wiped out, and explained that even if he hadn't, the memories held inside one's heart cannot truly disappear, only be suppressed, and would reassert given the right amount of time and circumstances. Having regained her memories, she immediately pursues a proper relationship with King upon completing her trial.
  • Aren't You Going to Ravish Me?: Gets this way when Meliodas doesn't fondle her like he does to Elizabeth even when shrunk down to normal human size much to Diane's dismay. The reason he gives though is that he wouldn't do it to someone so important to him.
  • Babies Ever After: She has a kid with King mentioned in the final chapter.
  • Badass Adorable: She's cute and, she's just as capable as her male compatriots in combat. Especially whenever she's trying to get Meliodas' attention.
  • Battle Couple: She often teams up with King during battle and they make good attack combinations together. Eventually, they become the only Official Couple made of two members of the Seven Deadly Sins.
  • Beautiful Dreamer: For King who stationed his sleeping arrangements in the Boar Hat so he can watch over her.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Diane fell in love with Meliodas because he treated her like a regular girl and not like a Giant.
  • Belated Love Epiphany: In chapter 110, she reveals to Elizabeth that she regained her lost memories of her time together with King and now that he has gone somewhere without telling her again, she has realized how much she loves him.
  • Betty and Veronica: The "Veronica" to Elizabeth's "Betty" for Meliodas' "Archie". Diane is a clingy easily jealous exotic giantess while Elizabeth is a very sweet and generally calm regular human. After the Kingdom Infiltration arc, she finally acknowledges she doesn't have a chance with Meliodas and starts to pursue a relationship with King instead since she regained her memories of their shared past.
  • BFS: Ground Gladius is a technique of Diane's in which she creates a sword larger than her from the ground to attack an opponent.
  • Big Damn Kiss: Literally.In chapter 215, she finally remembers her feelings for King and reciprocates his love, planting the mother-of-all-kisses on his lips. Except... hers are so big that she ends up snogging his whole head!
  • Big Eater: According to a Q&A from the first Fanbook, she and Hawk eat the most. Justified for her as she's a Giant.
  • The Big Girl: Both literally and figuratively. Diane is not only the biggest Sin, but also tends to favor physical attacks the most.
  • Bokukko: She uses the Japanese male pronoun boku to refer to herself when talking.
  • Boobs of Steel: She is easily the most physically powerful female of the Sins and she has the breasts to show it.
  • Bullying a Dragon: What a gaggle of dufus knights thought was a good idea at the time they first insulted the giant woman. Considering she could put a crater in the ground by throwing a rock, it never dawned on them that raising her foot would send the lot of them hurtling towards another continent.
  • Character Tics: Hair twirling. You can thank King for giving her the pigtails to do it with.
  • Child Prodigy: When Diane was a young child, she was able to create two rock golems despite how young she was compared to the rest of the Giant Clan.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: She and King were close friends back when they were kids (at least by their species standards).note  Giants age much slower in proportion with their longer lifespans. For Fairies, growing wings is considered as a rite of passage of sorts in their culture that serves as proof that they've become "adults". King fell in love with her and Diane wanted King to always love her. Then King erased her memories of their time together and Diane fell in love with Meliodas instead. She falls back in love with King once she regains her memories twice and they become a couple.
  • Chrome Champion: Her appearance turns into this when she turns herself into metal.
  • Cleavage Window: When Diane was shrunken for the first time, she adapts this style briefly while wearing Elizabeth's clothes. Later, Diane dons a second giant outfit which has a cleavage window.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Diane gets really jealous when Meliodas interacts with other girls than her, most notably Elizabeth. Sometimes her jealousy is expressed subtly and sometimes it's expressed as large as her size. She grows out of it once she gets over Meliodas and even encourages Elizabeth to confess her feelings to him.
  • Clothing Damage: While shrunken, Diane used Elizabeth's clothes and ended up having them damaged either from Howzer or from her slowly returning to her normal size.
  • Combination Attack: Has one with Meliodas called Metal Crush.
  • Cry Cute: Had this when she thought Meliodas "cheated" on her and when she was tired of being left at the Boar Hat due to her being a giant.
  • Cuddle Bug: Particularly towards Meliodas.
  • Cute Bruiser: She looks cute but can dish out a lot of physical based attacks.
  • Cute Giant: She's a giant who looks and acts like a cute teenage girl.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: When she reunited with other giants after her time with King, she had difficulty accepting the life of a Blood Knight among her kind.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Initially very antagonistic towards Elizabeth, Diane eventually warmed up to her and has become one of the most protective of the princess. She still sees Elizabeth as a love rival for Meliodas' affections though and thus can get very jealous, however Diane's fits of rage are more directed at Meliodas rather than towards Elizabeth.
  • Determinator: She tries to rescue Elizabeth even after Dreyfus beats her.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Diane's power, Creation, is an ability to raise the ground like towers and turn minerals into sand. It is an ability exclusive to her and other Giants due to their deep connection to nature.
  • The Ditz: She's pretty air-headed. It's bad enough that she somehow lost a weapon that is impossible to miss... well, if you're not her size, that is.
  • Drop the Hammer: Diane's Sacred Treasure is a giant warhammer. If a panel in Chapter 50 is proportionally correct, Gideon is almost twice as tall as she is!
  • Dub Name Change: In the Mexican Spanish dub, she is named "Diana" which is the Spanish rendering of her name from English.
  • Easy Amnesia: The second time she had her memories taken away, the human Gowther effortlessly put them back in place. While his doll self was the one that enacted the memory purge, his human self is the original wielder of that magic and knows how to use it to a greater extent than his creation, because the doll Gowther has amnesia of his own regarding some of his own abilities.
  • Elemental Shapeshifter: In addition to her Creation power, she is capable of turning into metal.
  • Eternal Love: With King. Fairies and giants are not exactly immortal, but they are Long Lived Races that view hundred of years as we view a few years or even less. When they were younger, Diane was jealous that humans could marry and have families because of their short lifespan and she asked King to always love her.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: Diane's power, Creation, is an ability to bend iron like toffee. It is an ability exclusive to her and other Giants due to their deep connection to nature.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Originally, she wore two gauntlets in her initial attire. However, her right gauntlet was permanently destroyed while battling with Gilthunder. For her second attire, she decided to wear a right glove while still retaining her left gauntlet.
  • Fastball Special: Threw Meliodas, Ban, and Gowther to Liones from around 40 miles away.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: With Elizabeth. Initially being openly hostile towards her, mainly out of jealousy regarding their love-triangle with the captain, Diane quickly comes to consider Elizabeth a very good friend. When she finds Elizabeth severely injured by Hendrickson, Diane is royally pissed off tearfully telling Hendrickson that she'll never forgive him.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: She met King when she was a child and the two fell in love with one another. He however erased her memories due to circumstances. She later regains these memories only to have them erased again by Gowther, then restored by the human Gowther.
  • Frame-Up: Her official Sin is having murdered her leader of her tribe, Matrona. However, the knights who arrested her were the ones who were actually responsible for the attack, and Matrona didn't actually die.
  • Freakiness Shame: Though she takes issue with her height, King in particular sees it as part of her charm.
  • Friendless Background: When she was a child, she didn't have any friends to play with. King was her Only Friend, but he erased her memories of their time together.
  • Friendly Rival: Despite considering Elizabeth as a love rival for Meliodas' affections, Diane is friends with her.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: Often does this in battle due to shrinking and outgrowing her clothing. She fought completely naked when the group battled against the Demon Chandler.
  • Funbag Airbag: During an attack from Guila in the Capital of the Dead, Meliodas landed into Diane's cleavage. She, however, was delighted at the accident.
  • Gentle Giant: Despite being a giant known as a great criminal, Diane is quite friendly, but mess with Meliodas, she will not forgive you.
  • Giant Poofy Sleeves: Though relatively small in relation to Diane's size, her initial outfit sports these.
  • Giant Woman: She's a very cute giant girl.
  • The Gift: Diane is extremely talented as a warrior and has the potential to become the greatest warrior of her clan.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Her standard attire includes her hair in pigtails. King was the one who suggested her to wear her hair that way, so it wouldn't get in the way. She was overjoyed with the hairstyle so much that when she donned her pigtails for the first time, she swished them around with glee.
  • Girly Bruiser: She's a badass giantess who often acts cutesy, especially when dealing with Meliodas or King later on.
  • Hates Being Alone: Diane mentioned that she was always alone and just wanted to be friends with Elizabeth and have Meliodas' attention and later that King doesn't go anywhere without her like he did before.
  • Height Angst: Her height gives her much distress. She in fact hides her real height like the stereotype about how girls hide their real weight.
  • Hopeless Suitor: No matter how much she loves him or what size she has, Meliodas only thinks of her as a friend and only acts perverted towards Elizabeth. After realizing Meliodas is meant to be with Elizabeth and remembering her past with King, she accepts this and moves on, falling back in love with King.
  • Immortal Immaturity: Though she's around 750 years old, she tends to act like a immature teenage girl. It's however reasonable as according to a Q&A from the first Fanbook, if she was human, she would be one year younger than Elizabeth, 15 years old.
  • Incredible Shrinking Man: Gender-flipped. There are have been a few times when Diane has been shrunk down to human size thanks to the magical spores of a particular mushroomcreature. There is only minor loss in strength or toughness, and she still retains her powers. She was still by far stronger than a high ranking Holy Knight; if anything, it is possible that shrinking makes her more powerful since she becomes faster and looking like a regular human causes people to underestimate her.note Meliodas disagrees however, noting that her attacks were becoming more powerful as she was restoring to her normal height. The first time she was affected, it was by accident. Later on, she's been given the option to do so willingly via some medicine created by Merlin. Said medicine looks like Japanese candy called Konpeitō.
  • Interspecies Romance: Diane is a giant who at first has a huge crush on Meliodas who is a demon. Later, she falls in love with King, a fairy.
  • It's All My Fault: After Meliodas reveals Elizabeth will die in three days as a result of regaining her Past-Life Memories, Diane blames herself for it because she encouraged Elizabeth to remember her past with Meliodas without knowing the consequences it would have.
  • Leotard of Power: Her initial attire is a yellow orange leotard.
  • Love Confession: She delivered a fantastic one to King in Chapter 215 in the form of a big fat kiss. And it continued into Chapter 216 with another kiss.
  • Love Hurts: Her unrequited love for Meliodas hurts her, but she manages to eventually get over it. Later, she remembers her past with King and realizes she still loves him, but since he has gone on a journey with Ban without telling her, her heart is suffering over the possibility that once again he will leave her behind and won't come back because she didn't tell him how she felt when she had the chance.
  • Love Makes You Dumb: Diane sometimes tends to act a bit dumb when comes to matters with Meliodas.
  • Loving a Shadow: Diane's crush on Meliodas was actually a projection of her love for King, who had erased himself from her memory. Diane subconsciously remembered that she was in love with someone who promised to love her forever and since she and King haven't reunited yet by that point, Diane wrongly assumed that the man she wanted was Meliodas. It's shown that when Diane was hoping to marry Meliodas someday, she was really thinking about King. The moment her memories of King come back, Diane immediately gets over Meliodas and gets together with King.
  • Made of Iron: Due to being a Giant, she appears to handle powerful attacks well. When Dreyfus made a hole in her chest and leg, she is still able to move around.
  • Minidress of Power: Her second attire which Diane has Merlin make for her, has this in its design. It's a rather Dangerously Short Skirt but fortunately Diane wears Modesty Shorts for the ensemble.
  • Modesty Shorts: She's seen in a pair in her second outfit- see Mini Dress Of Power above. The shorts cover up what the dress doesn't, and keep her undercarriage hidden away when she uses kicks. This is best seen as she drop-kicks Gowther while shrunken down by Merlin so she could chase after him through town easier.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Diane with her outfits is sometimes this, though not as emphasized much as Elizabeth. She also most definitely not as emphasized as much as Merlin.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: The Giant Clan is a Proud Warrior Race. Diane however doesn't adhere to her race's philosophies.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Mother Catastrophe, the name of one of Diane's more devastating techniques.
  • Nice Girl: Once you get past that hot-blooded Tsundere nature of her's, you'll find that Diane is a figurative and literal giant sweetie-pie.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Most notably whenever she is jealous.
  • Oblivious to Love: She doesn't notice King's crush on her at all until she regains her memories of their shared past.
  • Official Couple: She becomes King's girlfriend as of Chapters 215-216.
  • Our Giants Are Bigger: Diane, the Serpent's Sin of Envy, is a very attractive young lady... who happens to be enormous. She's too big to fit in most buildings, and actually laments her great height, since it means she can't interact normally with Meliodas, on whom she has a major crush.
  • Parental Abandonment: Diane's parents are no longer alive. They both went the way of most giants, felled in battle in honorable warriors' deaths. Matrona agreed to look after Diane in their stead in the event that happened, and raised her the only way she knew how- to fight much in the same way.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Up to Eleven with Gideon.
  • Poor Communication Kills: She finally gets over Meliodas and decides to pursue a relationship with King due to her regaining her memories. However, due to her not making her feelings perfectly clear to King, he leaves her believing that she only sees him as a friend.
  • The Promise: In the past during their time together, Diane asked King to promise her that he would always love forever.
  • Relationship Upgrade: As soon as the Gowther of the past returns her lost memories, she immediately tells King she loves him back and kisses him.
  • The Scapegoat: Framed by the survivors of a group of corrupt Liones knights who killed her mentor, Matrona, then blamed her for the murder.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: She found herself forced to make a choice as Dolor in the past that would have either ended in his death or his conscription to the Ten Commandments. But Dolor mentioned the possibility of running away, too, which was lost on him because his pride as a giant wouldn't allow for it. Except this is Diane we're talking about, not Dolor, and she is bound by no such obligations. Guess what Diane did? Sometimes, overthinking a problem robs you of an obvious solution.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Diane usually doesn't care if she is put in situations that are just blatant fanservice, such as her clothes being almost ripped apart. She cares even less if it involves being with with Meliodas. She however was ashamed that one time with Howzer during their battle in the Vaizel Festival with her weapon as the prize when she thought he was being a pervert.
  • Shipper on Deck: After she finally gets over Meliodas, she helps Elizabeth realize she loves him and encourages her to confess to him.
  • Shout-Out: A Giant using an attack called Double Hammer?
  • "Silly Me" Gesture: She sometimes hits herself cutely in acknowledgement of some of her ditzier instances.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man:
    • Diane loves Meliodas because she sees him as a good man who treated her as a normal size girl.
    • Later, she falls in love with King because of his kind heart after remembering what a good friend he was to her and how he took care of her back when they lived together.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: Diane is a teenager around 15 by giant standards and she's head-over-heels for Meliodas through the early part of the manga before she moves on to King. Her feelings for King are more serious.
  • Summon Magic: With her powers, Diane's capable of creating and controlling Golems. Of note, she was capable of golem creation since she was very young, a prodigious feat by itself compared to the rest of the Giant Clan.
    • There are two golems that she has been able to create and use since she was young. Named by her as Fillet and Loin, these two were first conceived when she was all by herself and longed for friends. Since then, she has created and used them a number of times. Though formidable, they're susceptible to mind control attacks and can be used against her. Furthermore, their strength only goes to a certain degree and can thus be weak against particularly strong opponents. This is because they're ultimately Imaginary Friends that Diane created and as such they didn't have specific forms which would allow them to achieve complete bodies or realize their full potential.
    • During the tournament hosted by two of the Ten Commandments, she creates golem replicas of her friends albeit with some details off such as their sizes. Since they were formed by the strong feelings that she had for actual friends from the depths of her heart, they were way stronger than Fillet and Loin. The individual strength of each of these differed depending on how strong a bond she had for the one each replica represented. Noteworthy among these was the golem replica of King which was able to one punch straight through the opponent she herself was having a hard time at that moment. Said golem though the second to the weakest looking among the replicas created was formed from the strong feelings she had for King then despite certain circumstances.
  • Sweater Girl: When shrunk down by her own volition via the medicine given to her by Merlin, Diane dons a dress that basically resembles an over-sized sweater.
  • Sword and Sorcerer: Diane is a giantess who fights with a giant hammer and King is a fairy with immense magic power, although he's nearly useless without his lance to cast it.
  • Taking the Bullet: She takes a falling building for Zeal.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Diane used her sacred treasure Gideon to form a giant floating mountain sized boulder above Vaizel in order to defeat Helbram who had just defeated Meliodas.
  • Time Dissonance: Has a similar time perception to King's, since Giants also have very long lifespans.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: Taken to the extreme with her and King. She's a 30 feet tall giant and he's a fairy who looks like a kid.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: She's the Tomboy when compared to Elizabeth. Diane is a hot-tempered giantess who fights with either her fists or a giant hammer, in contrast to Elizabeth who is a calm princess with White Magician Girl powers.
  • Tsundere: A Sweet type. She's open with her feelings and affectionate by default, but she's also hot-tempered, violent and very easily jealous.
  • Victoria's Secret Compartment: Being a giant, Diane is capable of carrying smaller characters in between her breasts such as with Meliodas in the fifth volume cover of the manga, and with Elizabeth when they were both shrunken by magic spores.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: She might not be Meliodas' girlfriend but she will beat the living hell out of you if you try to hurt him.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Ban.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: She calls Gowther out for messing with Guila and Zeal's memories in order to "study" love.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Diane is afraid of bugs, but will put that aside to help Meliodas.
  • Wistful Amnesia: Even though King erased her memories of the 500 years they spent together, Diane still subconsciously remembered things she learned from her time with him, such as how to make her clothes. She even vaguely remembered someone promised to always love her and her wish to one day create a happy family with the man she loved, but she thought she was thinking about Meliodas.
  • Woman Scorned: If Diane thinks that Meliodas has scorned her despite she not being his girlfriend, she can go completely ballistic.

    Ban 

"Fox's Sin of Greed" Ban

Voiced by:Tatsuhisa Suzuki (Japanese); Ben Diskin (English), Tara Sands (English – child); Alfredo Gabriel Basurto (Latin American), Karina Altamirano (Latin American - child)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ban_anime_character_design.png

Ban is a member of the Seven Deadly Sins, the Fox's Sin of Greed.

In the past, Ban was a bandit who went by the moniker "Bandit Ban". He sought out the Fountain of Youth in the Fairy King's forest in order to gain immortality in the hopes of living long enough for something good to actually happen to him. Instead, he met with the fountain's guardian Elaine and over the course of seven days, they both developed deep feelings for one another. However in the midst of it all, a Demon attacked the forest and deeply wounded both Ban and Elaine. In a sheer act of sacrifice, Ban was saved by Elaine when she gave him a drink from the fountain instead of saving herself. Having become immortal, Ban took care of the Demon but the damage to the forest was done and Elaine lost her life. For what happened, Ban was accused of the crime for which he didn't defend himself against.

Later, Ban was personally recruited by Meliodas to join the Seven Deadly Sins. As Meliodas was the second person after Elaine to truly acknowledge him, Ban joined the order. After the Sins were framed, he let himself be captured and imprisoned in Baste Dungeon, only to escape years later when he discovered that Meliodas was still alive.

While Ban didn't defend himself for the crime that he was accused of, he however at some point in time actually revived the forest by planting the seed entrusted to him by Elaine before her death. For this, he was deemed the new Fairy King by the Sacred Tree and accepted as such by most of its inhabitants much to his reluctance.


  • Animalistic Abomination: During his search for Meliodas' emotions in Purgatory, he succumbs to the effects of the place and loses his sense of self thus turning him into a shadowy fox-like creature. Fortunately, he regains his composure and reverts back to his regular immortal human self. Despite this, it still proves a struggle for him to not lose himself while in Purgatory.
  • Anti-Hero: He's one of the more amoral of the Sins yet he is a hero nonetheless.
  • Babies Ever After: He gets Elaine pregnant with his son, who he chooses to name Lancelot.
  • Bare Your Midriff: His initial attire leaves a bit of his midriff seen.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me:
    • Ban decided to follow Meliodas because the latter was the only one besides Elaine to accept, in Ban's own words, a shitty person such as himself. Because of this, Ban also trusts Meliodas so much that he refuses to believe that Meliodas may actually be a demon.
    • Also, if it wasn't for Elaine's Nice Girl personality, Ban would have been actually more selfish than he is now.
  • Best Friend: Out of all the Sins, Ban is Meliodas' closest friend. Ban admits Meliodas has to be the most important person to him after Elaine.
  • Big "WHAT?!": Expressed this when Hawk revealed that he could talk, was told the small kid he was fighting was King, and when King revealed that he can transform into his fat self.
  • Bloody Hilarious: Ban being immortal is sometimes played for laughs like when Diane crushed Ban's entire upper body and squirted blood out top as he if she were squeezing juice from a fruit, and the whole thing was treated like slapstick.
  • Blood Knight: Ban loves fighting very much.
  • Bring My Red Jacket: Fitting as an immortal that is often subjugated to all sorts of bloody wounds that he can just simply heal from, his attire is predominately red.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Ban gives up his immortality to completely resurrect Elaine. in exchange he becomes one of the most powerful members of the Deadly Sins next to Meliodas and Escanor because of the decades he spent fighting the Demon King in Purgatory. After his return to the human world, Ban is the only one along with Meliodas who can go toe-to-toe against the Demon King.
  • Can't Catch Up:
    • While a formidable fighter in his own right, Ban is increasingly outclassed in terms of raw specs by his companions, who all Take Levels in Badass and get a Mid-Season Upgrade while he's left in the dust. At one point, King outright tells Ban to stay out of the way since he'll only be a hindrance. Notably, Ban is the only one among the Sins who does not have their Sacred Treasure by the time of the Ten Commandments' revival.
    • Gloriously averted when he returns from Purgatory as his stay made him strong enough to take on the Demon King in Meliodas' body alone. And he still lacks his Sacred Treasure.
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: He gets drunk very easily.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Thousands of years in the Death World tend to lead to this trope.
  • Common Law Marriage: Near the end of the series, Ban succeeds in perfectly resurrecting Elaine and they can now spend their lives together. Although neither of them wants to formally get married with a wedding, Ban and Elaine eventually become king and queen of their own kingdom, as well as the parents of Lancelot.
  • Complete Immortality: It's the reason why he doesn't age and he heals so fast. He got this ability from drinking the Fountain of Youth. It's not entirely infallible though—it seems that if a source of power mightier than the elixir that gave him the ability hits him, he won't be able to regenerate it. The demonic energy that Meliodas exudes is one example of this.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Ban's childhood wasn't all that great, and his life before joining the Sins was so bad that he wanted to become immortal to see if anything good would happen in his life.
  • A Day in the Limelight: In Bandit Ban.
  • Discard and Draw: He willingly gives up his immortality to revive Elaine for good, but has spent so much time Level Grinding in Purgatory that he's more powerful than any of the other Sins - sans Meliodas and Escanor in their Super Mode- without it.
  • Erotic Dream: Tends to have these involving Elaine which he unfortunately talks during his sleep.
  • Every Scar Has a Story: The story behind Ban's very prominent scar is that he tried to take Meliodas' sword.
  • Expy: Of Hikyou Bancho from Kongoh Bancho , the previous work of the manga's author, Suzuki Nakaba. Design-wise, Ban's choice of clothes make him look like Hikyou Bancho. Ban being an expy of Hikyou Bancho is made more apparent when Ban decided to use a whip similar in design to the one used by Hikyou Bancho.
  • Fantastically Indifferent: Inverted. Whenever something unusual happens, like discovering that Hawk is capable of talking or that finding out that King is capable of changing his form, Ban is usually the only one who truly freaks out. His fellow Sins on the other hand, play the trope straight and take such things mostly with little to no alarm.

    Meliodas:[King changes back from his adult form to his kid form]Oh look, his clothes changed.
    Ban: Are you blind, Captain?!

  • Fighting with Chucks: One of the weapons Ban tends to fight with are nunchucks usually of the three-stick variant. His Sacred Treasure, according to the first Fanbook, Courechouse was an ornate four-stick variant.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: Due to the nature of Purgatory which disintegrates regular armor and clothing among other things, Ban loses his clothes amidst his search for Meliodas' emotions in the prison for souls and for a time had to fight in the nude.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: On the left side of his neck, he has a large scar given to him by Meliodas.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal!: Since he cannot be killed and easily regenerates any damage, Ban has been the victim of the more gruesome and bloody attacks. Not like he is bothered by them.
  • Healing Factor: Ban has this as one of his two abilities. He is literally unkillable by conventional means, but unconventional means like being Taken for Granite can still be lethal for him. Or worse.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Life is like hell for him since Elaine's death. Despite the company of his friends.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: Ban typically dresses in a red skin tight leather attire.
  • Heroism Equals Job Qualification: For reviving the forest, the fairies who accept Ban as their new king actually argue that he's more worthy of the title than Harlequin, the true Fairy King, as the latter abandoned the forest in the first place just to save a few friends. Ban however refutes their argument by stating he himself doesn't have the right as he tried to kill his only friend just to revive one woman.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: With Elaine. It's easy to miss, what with Meliodas being a tiny 5'0, King always floating, and Diane being a giant, but Elain wasn't actually that tiny. His height is listed as six foot eleven. At a grand total of nearly seven feet, Ban would tower over pretty much anyone, much less a small woman.
  • Human Pincushion: Ban is sometimes the victim of this but survives it due to being immortal.
  • Immortality Seeker: Ban sought out the Fountain of Youth in order to become immortal. His reason for doing this was that he believed that if he lived long enough, something good would eventually happen for him. He gave up this quest when he learned that it would destroy the forest. Unfortunately, he still became immortal via Elaine's Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Immortal Hero: While he isn't exactly heroic, he is one of the main characters.
  • Immortal Life Is Cheap: Ban is often subjected to the most brutal and otherwise lethal physical attacks such him being ripped apart to his bones broken. However, due to being immortal, these are just minor annoyances. It's the unconventional attacks though that give him cause for concern. As Guila notes, "unkillable" and "undefeatable" are two vastly different things.
  • Impossible Theft:
    • Ban is capable of stealing an object a great distance away, and even an opponent's heart when aided with nothing more than a blunt three-stick nunchaku without any attachment.
    • As noted in the Power Parasite entry, Ban is also able to temporarily steal the physical strength of those around him and use it to enhance his own.
    • Ban can also steal others' awareness of him, allowing him to approach enemies and perform devastating sneak attacks without fail.
  • Innocently Insensitive: He told Meliodas he has no idea how it feels to see the woman you love die all over again. Meliodas then reveals he has witnessed Elizabeth's death in all her past lives. 106 times. Realizing how cruel he was to his best friend, Ban felt like garbage afterwards.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Elaine who's a fairy while he's an immortal human.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Ban comes off as a jackass who doesn't care about anything but himself and the stuff he steals, but he's a good guy at heart. In his backstory, when he went after the elixir of immortality, Elaine told him that if he were to take the elixir, the forest surrounding it would die. Ban promptly decided that it wasn't worth it (claiming that the wild berries used in one of his favorite drinks were grown in that forest). He may be a thief, but he is not an abominable person.
  • Killing Intent: Ban gives one to Oslow when they first meet.
  • Knight in Sour Armor: In a literal sense, since he is part of a Knightly Order, and also in the sense of the trope; he has very little faith in the goodness of people, places no value on other people's opinion of him, and can count the number of people he truly gives a damn about on one hand note (Meliodas, Elaine, Zhivago, possibly Jericho, King at Elaine's request. Also, Hawk.). Despite this, when push comes to shove, he'll fight to defend the kingdom from demonic invasion.
  • The Lancer: To Meliodas during the first part of the story until he left the Sins. The two are best friends and are the closest to each other among the Sins. After he returns, he shares this role with Merlin.
  • Living Forever Is Awesome: Ban has considered this ever since he was young as he believes that if one lives long enough, something good might eventually happen to them. Subverted, in a way. His search for immortality led to him meeting the love of his life. Then he gained immortality and she died. So, living forever kinda sucks for him, really.
  • Loveable Rogue: Ban's a thief and is often very amoral, but he gets alot of sympathy especially in regards to his past with Elaine.
  • Loved I Not Honor More: He and Elaine realize her continuing to "live" isn't because of her strong desire but Melascula is still alive, though maimed severely by Escanor. After Merascylla is healed, Ban hugs Elaine and she affirms Ban will one day revive her for real. Ban then sneaks past the Ten Commandments (by stealing their awareness of him) and neck snaps Merascylla killing her to help save Meliodas.
  • Manly Tears: He truly cried when Hendrickson killed Hawk.
  • Mayfly–December Romance: With Elaine, at least before he became immortal, as he was a regular human while she was an ageless fairy. After giving Elaine half of his immortality, Ban will now live out a human lifespan while Elaine has a fairy's lifespan and will live much longer than him.
  • Mercy Kill: How Ban decided to deal with the Armored Giant.
  • Mistaken for Murderer: He's accused of having killed Elaine, when it was actually a demon who killed her and she sacrificed her life to save him.
  • Mortality Ensues: After returning from Purgatory, he returns in time to save Elaine from danger, only for her to die in his arms again due to exhausting the life granted to her by Melascula. Ban refuses to end it like this and uses a technique he learned in Purgatory to bring Elaine back for good, at the cost of his immortality. However, Ban is okay with it.
  • The Mourning After: He believes Elaine was the only woman for him and he's still looking for a way to bring her back years after she died.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Ban often wears skin tight clothing and is often a subject Shirtless Scene due to repeated Clothing Damage. It gets to the point where in the anime, he's shirtless at some point almost every single episode. At one point, a demon punches him to the ground, and when he gets up, his shirt is gone. Not torn or shredded, just literally gone.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: Resorts to this by default.
  • Naked Apron: After the battle with Guila in the Capital of the Dead, Ban was left without a shirt since it was heavily damaged. Concerned about this he asked Meliodas what to do about it for which the latter halfheartedly suggested Ban to just simply go topless with an apron on. Hilariously, Ban took up on the suggestion. He has also since donned this getup whenever he cooks for the Boar Hat.
  • Nemean Skinning: During his search for Meliodas' emotions in Purgatory, Ban loses his clothes. Upon learning that monsters born in Purgatory have evolved to withstand its disintegrating effects, he decides to slay one of the native monsters and make clothes from its pelt.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Due to his immortality, Ban handle all sort of attacks as if there were nothing. And by the time he loses it, he is strong enough to No-Sell most of these.
  • Nominal Hero: While Ban is willing to help Elizabeth's cause, his motivation is less for upholding justice and more for getting a reward that would help him resurrect Elaine. Downplayed since it is a genuinely good cause motivated by love, but not the most heroic regarding the rest of the kingdom.
  • No-Sell: Due to his immortality, normal attacks don't affect Ban at all and thus he usually acts like they're not a big deal.
  • No Shirt, Long Jacket: Gets this as his second attire from King and Diane.
  • Odd Friendship: With Hawk.
  • Offered the Crown: For planting the seed entrusted to him by Elaine and effectively reviving the forest he was accused of burning down, Ban was made the new Fairy King by the revived forest's fairy inhabitants. He however he is reluctant of the position offered to him.
  • Official Couple: He and the fairy Elaine are lovers, although she's dead or incompletely revived for most of the series. After Ban fully revives Elaine, they can get married and have a son together.
  • Older Than He Looks: According to the first Fanbook, his body is that of his 23 year old self when he first drank the Fountain of Youth. Chronologically though, he's 43 years old. After returning from Purgatory, he is much older but still looks the same.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: Sort of. He forbids Meliodas to be killed by anyone but him.
  • Opposites Attract: Ban's a rather tall originally normal-aged Jerk with a Heart of Gold human thief. Elaine's a Really 700 Years OldToken Mini-Moe saintly Fairy guardian. They genuinely fell for each other even when circumstances made them even more opposite in nature, what with Ban becoming an undying immortal and Elaine becoming a ghost.
  • Play-Along Prisoner: He spent five years in prison, being nailed to a wall with huge steel stakes. He was deprived of sunlight, food and even movement. However, after he heard about his captain's return, he pulled the stakes out of his limbs, kicked the door down and went to the exit, while effortlessly defeating anyone who tried to stop him. When the knight who originally caught him attempted to stop his escape, he revealed that he let himself be jailed and tortured out of boredom, and proceeded to kill the knight with his own weapon.
  • Power Parasite: Ban can steal the physical abilities of his opponents, including speed, stamina and raw strength, and add it to his own, thus strengthening himself, and weakening his opponents. The downside, though, is that adding them to his body can make him heavier than he can carry himself if he's not careful.
  • The Promise: Ban promised to Elaine in the past that he will make her his, and he's still trying to do that despite her being dead.
  • Punny Name: His moniker before becoming immortal was "Bandit Ban."
  • Rags to Royalty: He started his life as a Street Urchin who needed to steal in order to survive. Later on, he marries a fairy princess and becomes the king of the fairy kingdom of Benwick.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Ban seems tough but he did went through a stuffed animal phase of which unfortunately entailed stealing several from kids.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Subverted. While his eyes are red and he's a jerk, Ban usually has his heart in the right place.
  • Reluctant Ruler: Though he was made the new Fairy King, Ban is however reluctant of the title. In fact, he not only tried to give the position back to the rightful ruler and also cited why he himself is unfit of the right.
  • The Rival: To Meliodas despite being comrades.
  • Royal Rapier: In the first chapter of the manga, an image of himself in armor alongside the other Sins depicts him with a rapier. In the anime, this is changed into nunchucks.
  • The Runaway: His biological parents were poor and abusive, driving Ban to run away and live in the streets.
  • Sadistic Choice: The Goddess Clan tells him they can bring his beloved Elaine back to life, but in exchange he must kill his best friend Meliodas.
  • Scars Are Forever: Despite having received Immortality with an extensive Healing Factor, Ban received a large scar from Meliodas when he tried to take the latter's sword. The scar hasn't healed since then.
  • Selective Magnetism: Part of Ban's ability, Snatch, allows him to pull things to himself from great distances like a magnet.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The roguish, crude Manly Man to King's shy, friendly Sensitive Guy.
  • Shipper on Deck:
    • For King and Diane.
    • Ban is quite incensed when he takes Merlin apparently being brusque with Escanor to mean he 'cheated' on her. (Although he is smashed at the time)
  • Silent Scapegoat: Regarding Elaine's death and the destruction of the forest. His motives for not letting on haven't been revealed so far.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Elaine is the only woman he has shown any interest in.
  • Spit Take: His reaction to King's change of forms.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Elaine. He's immortal and she's dead however he is trying to find a way to rectify this.
  • Sticky Fingers: He has penchant for stealing pretty much anything that fancies his interest.
  • Street Urchin: In his youth, Ban was a runaway and poor kid who stole in order to survive.
  • Sue Donym: Ban enters his and Meliodas' names in the Vaizel Fight Festival with Diane's weapon as a prize, as Baan and Meliodaf respectively.
  • Supreme Chef: He is easily the best cook of the band.
  • Talking in Your Sleep: Ban tends to talk in his sleep mostly in regards to Elaine. Of note is him talking about planting a seed, which might be the seed Elaine gave him in the past.
  • Team Chef: He takes up cooking in the Boar Hat, mainly because Meliodas is a terrible cook.
  • Time Abyss: Following his stay in Purgatory, he is the second oldest being in the world, the first being the Demon King.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Among the Sins, Ban is the second-most amoral of them all (Gowther outdoes him on that front), preferring to steal and even commit murder. However, that's just in comparison with his fellow Sins. In comparison with other more genuinely antagonistic characters, Ban is actually not that bad of a guy.
  • Token Human: According to the first Fanbook, he is one of the two Sins who're identified clearly as humans with the other being Escanor. The Fanbook though makes a note that Ban is originally human while Escanor is identified merely as a human.
  • Torso with a View: King blows his chest open during their first encounter, leaving a few scraps of flesh on both side to support his upper body. It quickly fills in as though nothing ever happened, however.
  • Tragic Bigot: His fairy lover was killed by a low-class demon. Due to what happened with Elaine, Ban doesn't like demons. Demons tick him off so much that he refuses to believe that Meliodas is actually a demon when he's first told about it.
  • Tsurime Eyes: His eyes are narrow and sharp, indicating his violent and confident personality.
  • Verbal Tic: Ban tends to say some of his sentences in a song-like manner, as symbolized by a long sing tone at the end in his speech bubbles.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds:
    • With Meliodas. They derive great enjoyment from beating the ever-loving crap out of each other, but the thought of Meliodas possibly being a Demon greatly upsets Ban.
    • He has his violent banter with King and Diane too who know they can beat him bloody for being annoying because Ban can't die.
  • Wham Line: I'm leaving the Seven Deadly Sins...
  • What the Hell, Hero?: To Meliodas when the latter refused to kill an opponent even when the opponent was a heavily mutated Holy Knight whose death would end his suffering. Ban even punches Meliodas due to said matter.
  • Whip It Good: During the battle with the mutated Holy Knight who wore Gowther's armor, Ban picked up a whip as weapon against it. The whip's design, combined with Ban's tight fitting clothes, makes Ban look like an Expy of Hikyou Bancho from Kongoh Bancho, the previous work of the manga's author, Suzuki Nakaba.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Downplayed. He has white hair and although he is not that bad, he is highly dangerous.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: Ban suffered this trope after the death of Elaine and actually described living forever without her around to be a personal hell. This eggs on his eventual murder attempt of Meliodas to bring Elaine back to life.
  • Wound That Will Not Heal: In a moment of drunkenness, he pissed off Meliodas enough to make him release his demonic powers, and Meliodas briefly lost control and inflicted a nasty gash on the side of his neck and face. Because it was inflicted by cursed demonic energy, even though Ban has been gifted regenerative immortality, the sheer evil power Meliodas possesses innately surpasses the blessed power of the fountain of youth Ban drank, so the scar remains.
  • World's Strongest Man: After returning from Purgatory ,Ban is the strongest amongst the Sins barring Meliodas and Escanor using The One:Ultimate. After Escanor passes away, Ban becomes the sole strongest human in the setting.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has whitish-blue hair in the anime.

    King 

"Grizzly's Sin of Sloth" King

Voiced by:Jun Fukuyama (Japanese), Max Mittelman (English), Luis Leonardo Suárez (Latin American)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/king_anime_character_design.png

King is a member of the Seven Deadly Sins and represents the Grizzly's Sin of Sloth. He is the master of the Black Hound, Oslow. King's real name is Fairy King Harlequin, and as the name suggests, he was the king of the fairies.

700 years prior to the start of the story, King left the Fairy world to locate a group of fairies led by his best friend Helbram; who had left the forest to trade with some humans. However, suffering a grievious injury in the process, he ended up forgetting who he was and his original mission. King spent the next 500 years in relative bliss and ignorance in the company of Diane, a child giant who saved him, slowly recovering his memories. It was only when he reunited with his friend again did King learn that his old friend was massacring countless humans over the centuries, an act which was practically a declaration of war between the Human and Fairy Clan. For his inaction to stop his friend from doing so all those years, King was sentenced to an imprisonment of over 1000 years. In the midst of it though, he was recruited into the Seven Deadly Sins.

After the incident in which the Sins were framed and forced to flee the country, King attempted to return to the Fairy King's forest only to learn that it had been burned down and that his sister Elaine, who had protected the forest in his stead, had been killed. When he learns that Ban is the supposed perpetrator of this crime, King briefly allies himself with the Holy Knights of Liones.


  • Accomplice by Inaction: His crime is this for doing nothing to stop his friend from massacring humans for over 500 years completely unopposed due to King having amnesia and not being aware of what was going on during that time.
  • The Atoner: He willingly allowed himself to be imprisoned for a thousand years to atone for not being there for his friend.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's the lord of the fairies and one of the Seven Deadly Sins, the most powerful knights in Brittania, having spent centuries repelling entire armies of Holy Knights who sought the Fountain of Youth. In the present, he's more than able to deliver a Curb-Stomp Battle to Dreyfus, after seeing how the Great Holy Knight and Hendrickson had revived King's dear friend Helbram from the dead as a barely conscious zombie begging for death.
  • Authority in Name Only: Despite his name referring to him being the king of the fairies, it unfortunately turns out to be this when it's revealed that they no longer see him as their king, having decided that the honor now better suits Ban for what he did for them.
  • Babies Ever After: In the final chapter, King mentions he and Diane have a child.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: After his wings fully grow, King's appearance changes to that of a young adult and he dons an extremely nice suit, which makes him look rather dashing, much to the pleasure of Diane.
  • Battle Couple: Often seen fighting alongside Diane. They later become a true battle couple after both of them kiss.
  • Beady-Eyed Loser: He's beady-eyed and probably the character with the worst luck in the series.
  • The Beastmaster: He is the master of Oslow the Black Hound.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Him being too late to protect those he cares about and mentioning it to him is a sore spot.
    • He doesn't take kindly to being told of his missing wings, as both of the previous Fairy Kings had them. And when he finally does grow his in, he hates the fact that they start off as tiny (they did for Gloxinia as well) and his peers start joking about him "growing a pair" and that pair being "kid's size" or "baby wings".
  • Big Brother Instinct: He tried to kill Ban after assuming he was responsible for Elaine's death.
  • Big Damn Kiss: He finally got his reward from Diane in Chapter 215, after crying his eyes out moments earlier thinking she was doomed to die. A glorious Pet the Dog moment if there ever was one, indeed. Then, he gets to return the kiss in the very next chapter.
  • Bishōnen: After his wings fully develop, he goes from his child-like appearance to this; complete with a flamboyant hairstyle, a suit to match and body looking to be in its early twenties.
  • Blade on a Stick: Wields Chastiefol, a spear crafted from the wood of the Sacred Tree that is harder than steel and can transform itself into various configurations to diversify King's attack set. However, due to the naturally weak physical bodies of fairies, he tends to use it through telekinesis and magic instead.
  • Break the Cutie: The Kingdom Infiltration arc wasn't all that nice to King, what with him arriving too late to protect the person he values the most and being forced to kill his best friend for a second AND third time (Along with the knowledge that his actions in the past ended up in said friend's corpse circling on the black market). As if that wasn't enough: the memories of his old past were dug up, he got some shred of hope of Diane remembering him only to have it ripped from him the upcoming second and was forced to mortally injure Meliodas. In the next arc, he returns home to his friends and family, only to have them shun and abuse him for leaving the forest 700 years ago. Then it gets leveled again by one of the Demons' "playthings". It really sucks to be King.
  • Butt-Monkey: He is often the Straight Man to the other Sins' antics and a Dogged Nice Guy in regards to Diane. It even shows up in the popularity poll. When he manages to land first place by a landslide the other Sins make him throw a party for them while stripping him, much to his embarrassment.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: King has trouble expressing his true feelings towards Diane.
  • Cassandra Truth: King is having a hard time after finding out that Elaine wanted to save Ban and that he is not the person he thinks he is.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: He and Diane were close friends back when they were kids (at least by their species standards).note  Giants age much slower in proportion with their longer lifespans. For Fairies, growing wings is considered as a rite of passage of sorts in their culture that serves as proof that they've become "adults". King fell in love with her and Diane wanted King to marry her in turn once they got older. But then King erased her memories of their time together and Diane fell in love with Meliodas instead. She falls back in love with King once she regains her memories twice and they become a couple.
  • Covert Pervert: While he personally denies being one, it's rather clear that some of his feelings towards Diane are rather dirty minded.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: With his sacred treasure, he is a devastating force that deserves his title as one of the Seven Deadly Sins. Without it... he couldn't fight a drunk old man.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Takes down Guila and Jericho with little to no effort and one-hits Great Holy Knight Dreyfus. Hendrickson had all his reasons to keep him distracted.
    • He delivers another one to Mael, who had absorbed multiple Commandments and curb-stomped his fellow sins Diane and Gowther as well as the archangels Tarmiel and Sariel, after his fairy wings fully grow.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: For not being the one who actually protected the fountain, he lost his sister and the forest he lived in was destroyed.
  • Declaration of Protection: Facing the second Albion, he swears to protect everyone he holds dear and destroys it.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: King really wants to be with Diane as per the promise he made with her. However due to varying circumstances and the fact that Diane is smitten with Meliodas, he's really having a hard time.
  • Dual Age Modes: King's human form which he can change to is what he would look if his form was much older.
  • The Empath: After his wings fully grow, King becomes able to read the surface thoughts and feelings of people around him, allowing him to understand the pain Mael was in as well as Diane's shock at the turn of events.
  • Enemy Mine: King temporarily teams up with the Holy Knights in order to get at Ban when he believes the latter is the one responsible for his sister's death. He only sought Ban and not the other Sins though. The truce falls apart after being reunited with Elaine's ghost in the Capital of the Dead.
  • Eternal Love: With Diane. Their species are so long-lived that centuries look like a short timespan for them. Being jealous of the humans being able to form families due to their short timespan, Diane asked King to always love her.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": King's name is just a title used by others as a reference to him being the Fairy King. His real name is actually Harlequin though it is rarely used by most characters. According to a Q&A from the first Fanbook, he's the one who picked the name.
  • The Exile: After having been absent for 700 years, the fairies now consider him a traitor and have forbidden him from ever returning to the forest.
  • Faerie Court: Is the king of fairies. However, his long absence caused the other fairies to see him as a traitor.
  • Fantastic Racism: In his past, King harbored some deep animosity towards humans. However it was less because of actual racism and more because of caution. He actually admired human things just as much as his more curious fairy friends back then as evidenced by his choice of clothes. It's just that King was more aware of and cautionary against the dangers that some predatory and unscrupulous humans might bring.
  • Fingore: His fingernails get ripped out when he used the True form of Chastiefol against the Albion who attacked the second Fairy King's Forest.
  • First Girl After All: A male example. Diane falls in love with King once she accepts Meliodas is meant to be with Elizabeth, but it turns out Diane met and fell in love with King long before she fell in love with Meliodas. King just erased her memories of their time together. Diane remembering him was a major reason for her getting over Meliodas so quickly.
  • Flight: This is King's specialty, as he and his spear are able to levitate effortlessly.
  • Florence Nightingale Effect: He is in love with Diane, the girl who found him near a river while suffering from amnesia and took care of him until he got his memory back.
  • Flying Weapon: Via his powers, King is capable of levitating his weapon Chastiefol and attack enemies with it in mid air.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: King had in the past actually met Meliodas as one of the knights who captured him for his supposed crime of sloth. However since this happened centuries ago before King learned that Meliodas wasn't actually a human, he didn't recognize that Meliodas was the same knight from back then. Because of this and that one of the rules of their order was that they shouldn't delve into each others' past, it lead to King being surprised why Meliodas still looked the same when they reunited ten years after the Sins were framed. It's only after learning about Meliodas' past that King pieces together that they had met before.
  • Game Face: King uses his human form as his game face. Subverted in that he often returns to his child form to actually do anything since his human form takes up too much of his concentration.
  • Garden Garment: His clothes are actually plant based which he made himself after watching some humans make some.
  • Glamour: Inverted. Instead of transforming into a more youthful form, he can take on a older, fatter one. He originally used it as a form of respect rather than a disguise. However after reuniting with Meliodas, he unintentionally uses it for a wide range of reactions for various hilarious situations.
  • Glass Cannon: King is arguably one of the most dangerous sins to face in battle, having an extremely versatile weapon that allows him to dish out a great deal of damage, bot physical and magical, as well as heal and protect allies at a distance. However, as a fairy he is extremely weak physically and is practically done for once his spear's defensive capabilities are broken through. This also applies to his Sacred Treasure, capable of dealing great damage but easily breaks apart when hit with ice magic.
  • Going Commando: According to a Q&A from the first Fanbook, he doesn't wear underwear like the rest of the Fairy Clan.
  • Gonk: King's human form is a fat slob of a man who seems to embody sloth more properly than his true fairy form.
  • Heroic RRoD: The result of using Chastiefol's released form to bring down the Albion attacking his home. Goes From Bad to Worse when you realize just how painful the release must have been taking his pre-existing injuries in regard. The force was strong enough to rip his NAILS off his hands.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: King usually puts himself down for always being late when those he cares about need him. Even when the other fairies label him as a traitor for abandoning the forest, King doesn't defend himself because he believes they are right and without his title, he's now a nobody.
  • Hopeless Suitor: He has a huge crush on Diane, who's only interested in Meliodas. Subverted since it turns he isn't so hopeless after all.
  • Identity Amnesia: In his back story, King ended up having amnesia after a human merchant slashed his back and knocked him out which caused King to end up forgetting who he is for about 500 years which led to his sins.
  • Insecure Love Interest: Besides being convinced that Diane will always think of him as a friend, he also even believes that she's probably better off without him.
  • Instant Costume Change: As a Fairy, King is able to not only change his form, but his clothing as well.
  • Interspecies Romance: King, who is a fairy, has a large crush on Diane, who is a giant.
  • In the Hood: He wears a long orange and aqua sweatshirt with a hood.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifter: King sometimes shapeshifts into his human form as a form of his expression in any given situation.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Doesn't seem to resent the fact that Diane's crush on Meliodas makes it hard for him to have a chance to get together with her and is happy with just spending time with her.
  • Kill the Ones You Love: King was forced to kill his Best Friend Helbram after the latter was driven mad and went into a massive killing spree of humans. As if that wasn't bad enough, King has to kill him two more times after Helbram is brought back to life through "Enslavement of the Dead".
  • Large Ham: He has his moments. Most notably when he's worrying about Diane.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: He becomes this to Diane once she regains her memories, to the point that she can't stand being away from him and she begins to freak out when he goes somewhere without telling her since she's afraid that he will leave her again.
  • Magic Enhancement: His magic, Disaster. It's literally the ability to exaggerate anything, usually into something worse. Glancing blows become gushing wounds. An easily curable poison can be turned into a virulent toxin. A single sprout can grow into a huge forest in moments before being culled just as easily.
  • The McCoy: King is very emotional.
  • Mercy Kill: In a rather offhanded way, Helbram made King promise in the past that the latter would stop him should he ever lose his way. King actually fulfills the promise the first time around, but following a streak of bad luck has to kill him twice more.
  • Mind over Matter: King is capable of moving things from afar. This range from simply pushing teacup off a table, to levitating a large amount of water out of a lake.
  • Misplaced Retribution: King attempts to kill Ban to avenge the Fairy King's Forest and his sister, thinking Ban was the one who burned the forest down and killed Elaine. King didn't know Ban was a Silent Scapegoat; a red demon was the one that destroyed the forest and Elaine sacrificed her life to save Ban.
  • Morph Weapon: King's Sacred Treasure, Chastiefol can change its shape via King's will.
    • Chastiefol is a spear and its first and default weapon form aptly named Chastiefol is one of an intricately designed one. Its third form, Formalization, is also a spear but with a completely different design, the most notable is a claw shaped blade. The first form of its released True form likewise is a spear however its size is incredible massive. Additionally, the blade of this form has a rather distinct and impressive looking design. After King's wings fully develop, its appearance in its True form once again changes. It becomes a spear modeled after a flower with its blade designed to be the flower's long protruding pistil.
    • The spear's eighth form, Pollen Garden, is a Beehive Barrier comprised of interlocking circles of pollen that resemble part of Chastidol's regular weapon design. It is also capable of healing wounds albeit rather slowly. After King's wings fully grow, its True form has a different appearance.
    • The spear's seventh form, Luminosity, is a small Saturn-like

The Seven Deadly Sinsnote Clockwise: Escanor, Diane, Merlin, King, Meliodas, Gowther, and Ban.

The Seven Deadly Sins (Nanatsu no Taizai) is a fantasy adventure manga about the land under a terrible tyranny brought about by the Holy Knights, who have taken control of the land and are making life miserable for everyone. Elizabeth, princess of a kingdom conquered by the Holy Knights, has traveled the land looking for the only group that might be able to defeat the Holy Knights, seven knights thought dead, feared throughout the land for their great and terrible power... The Seven Deadly Sins. The Sins are presumed dead after they had apparently tried to overthrow her father the king.

To her surprise, Elizabeth finds one of the Sins, Meliodas, the Dragon's Sin of Wrath, happily running a tavern, and he is nothing like the stories say (he doesn't look anything like his wanted poster, for one thing)... save that he is incredibly strong. At Elizabeth's request, she and Meliodas go on a quest to find the six remaining Sins. However, the quest will not be easy, as the Holy Knights are hunting for the Seven Deadly Sins, and Elizabeth as well, and will go to great lengths to capture or destroy them.

This manga contains examples of:

    open/close all folders 

    A-B 

  • Adaptation Distillation: In regards to the A-1 Pictures anime, certain events and things that happened originally in the manga have been distilled.
    • In regards to Ban's past with Elaine, the anime retains the important scenes regarding their relationship however it doesn't include the small montage showing said relationship's development. The first OVA of the anime though does include said development.
    • The initial encounter with Veronica and Griamore is cut out in the anime as the Sins immediately head to the Vaizel Fighting Festival after reuniting with King. The pendant that Elizabeth originally received from her sister in that encounter however still pops up in the festival, though it's changed from a Chekhov's Gun to a plot device that Veronica just whips out almost all of a sudden.
    • Oslow's original introduction during the Capital of the Dead is cut out in the anime. He however does appear later on in the anime due to the important role he serves in the story. Like the pendant mentioned above though, the change in introduction changes him from a Chekhov's Gunman to a sudden convenient plot device.
    • During the kingdom infiltration arc, Gowther's encounter with Slader is completely cut out in the anime. Any other subsequent plotlines related to said encounter, such as Slader desperately trying to save King Baltra, is omitted from the anime as well.
  • Adaptation Expansion:
    • For the first few episodes of the anime, some extra scenes were added such at the start of each one. Most notably, the start of the very first episode which details the aftermath of the Sins' escape from Liones after they were framed.
    • The Armored Giant is given more character before it goes berserk in conjunction with the new scenario created in the anime.
    • The Ban OVA covers Ban's backstory in whole but adds a few minor scenes. The most significant though is the scene where Ban plants the seed given by Elaine.
  • Adaptation Explanation Extrication:
    • Due to the anime skipping Veronica's initial introduction and other pieces of dialogue, some things don't exactly add up in the Vaizel Fighting Festival to regain Diane's weapon. Why exactly is Veronica helping out the Holy Knights who usurped her father's rule in the first place isn't explained as the dialogue detailing her reasons was skipped. She merely acts antagonistic to the Sins and the contradiction of her allegiance is not addressed in the anime. There's also what happens after Meliodas is injured by Guila and taken somewhere else to recuperate. What happened originally in the manga was that Elizabeth gave him the pendant she received earlier from Veronica on the pretense that it's a charm given by their father to ward off evil, and then started praying in a sense. Basically, she was praying for this specific thing to help out an injured Meliodas. However as Elizabeth didn't receive the pendant for to give to Meliodas in the anime, her sudden praying for his protection in this particular scene kinda gives off a completely different context.
    • The explanation of Oslow's ability to teleport people via eating them is also given as an explanation as to what actually happened to the two Holy Knights he ate prior to the Capital of the Dead incident. As the anime cut out Oslow's original appearance, the ability and its explanation somewhat loses some context. There's also the explanation as to why Oslow isn't seen around much with the rest of the group despite being King's loyal companion. The reason is that Oslow's favorite food is pork, something that would greatly not sit well with both Hawk and his mother hence why he was kept away. The anime keeps the explanation but due to the changes, it somewhat makes it look more like a Hand Wave as why King never ever mentioned him before rather than anything else.
    • The fight with Arthur and Hendrickson has the former being defeated by the latter. This occurs both in the manga and anime, however the latter leaves out the explanation that this was actually Arthur's first real fight and that his powers hadn't manifested yet. The omission thus frames Arthur's battle against the Great Holy Knight very differently as well as leave out the reason why he didn't use his powers despite Hendrickson constantly sensing it.
    • The battle between Dreyfus and Hendrickson in the Liones capital is significantly changed in the anime and leaves some things a bit iffy. The first foremost major change is that the battle in the anime is only between these two with Griamore being completely cut out altogether. Apart from changing the dynamic of the fight altogether, his exclusion makes certain things that happen requiring a bit of more explanation. The biggest of which is Elizabeth accidentally getting injured amidst the battle. In the manga, she's protected by Griamore's barriers but is rendered immobile thus unable to get away from the battle when she accidentally gets hit. In the anime, she just simply stands around when all this occurs, basically making her getting injured looking a bit like her own fault. This also ties in with the second foremost change which is how she is injured. In the manga, Dreyfus actually slips and injures her with a misdirected attack, an act that actually serves as an important plot point later in the actual story. In the anime, she's simply injured due to simply being a collateral victim caught due to being too close to two major attacks.
    • The anime at the very end has a season Sequel Hook that involves Gil, Howzer, and Griamore investigating some books that Dreyfus had. Why they're investigating isn't explained and doesn't make much sense since the anime changed several scenes involving Dreyfus. Said scenes made them question him due to contradicting accounts thus leading to said investigation.
  • Adapted Out: Pelliot and his friends who tie in with Gowther's introduction in the manga are adapted out in the anime. In their place, Gowther is given a completely different introduction involving the Armored Giant more closely instead.
  • Adult Fear: Imagine if, due to the spiteful machinations of your former enemies from your checkered past, including your politically powerful and utterly demented parents, every lover and crush you ever had was accidentally murdered... over... and over...
  • The Alcatraz: Baste Dungeon, a large fortress-like prison seemingly built in a mesa wherein Ban was imprisoned.
  • Amplifier Artifact: Each of the Sins is supposed to have a sacred treasure, a holy weapon that allows them to draw on even more of their innate power. Unfortunately, Ban, Meliodas and Diane got separated from their treasures when they broke up.
  • Amusing Injuries: Ban is the champ of this trope, due to his immortality. Even in some dire situations, his getting cut in half can elicit some laughs.
    • Hawk suffers a number of these as well, with jokes about something smelling tasty usually following.
  • And the Adventure Continues: The first season of the anime ended this way, presumably in case it didn't get picked up for a second season.
  • Animal Motifs: Each of the Sins has a motif of an animal that is either usually associated or stereotyped with their respective sin. This is primarily presented as their monikers and tattoos.
    • For Meliodas the Dragon's Sin of Wrath, it's dragons which relate to his sin based on them being very wrathful and destructive. His broken sword has a dragon handle design and he has fire based powers, a common power of dragons. The motif also relates to him being a demon as dragons in the Medieval folklore were equated to demons. Of special note, his dragon tattoo design resembles an Ouroboros, which in some cases is depicted with a dragon instead of a serpent. The symbol is associated with cyclicality, something that Meliodas seems to be associated with as evidenced by some of his closest friends apparently being reincarnations.
    • For Diane the Serpent's Sin of Envy, it's snakes which relate to her sin based on them being seen as symbols of envy.
    • For Ban the Fox's Sin of Greed, it's foxes which relate to his sin based on the idea that they're seen as very sneaky and greedy thieves. Additionally, his surrogate father Zhivago was a thief who happened to be a werefox.
    • For King the Bear's Sin of Sloth, it's bears which relate to his sin based on the idea of them being rather slothful such as during long periods of hibernation. Additionally, the second form of his spear is a giant teddy bear.
    • For Gowther the Goat's Sin of Lust, it's goats which relate to his sin based on them seen as a symbol of lust, such as the case with satyrs and other such similar creatures.
    • For Merlin the Boar's Sin of Gluttony, it's pigs which relate to her sin based on Gluttonous Pigs. Additionally, she has a rapport with Hawk the pig.
    • For Escanor the Lion's Sin of Pride, it's lions which relate to his sin based on them being seen as symbols of pride.
  • Arc Symbol: A triskelion-like symbol constantly shows up now and then. To name some notable instances, it's the shape of both Meliodas' belt buckle of the armor he once wore before the Sins were framed, and the Balor's Power Eye that Hawk later obtained, and it's on Elizabeth's right eye.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: In chapter 69, Slader claims that the King of Liones declared the Seven Sins to be traitors who murdered the previous Great Holy Knight and are enemies of the kingdom. Gowther asks him if he actually heard the King say those words. Slader is shaken when he realizes that he didn't.
  • Armored Villains, Unarmored Heroes: Though the Sins wore armor in the past, they don't wear such in the present. Instead they prefer to wear relatively casual clothes. In contrast, the Holy Knights are practically almost always seen in full armor.
  • As Lethal as It Needs to Be: Meliodas and the Sins as well as the Holy Knights are able to shrug off massive amounts of blunt force trauma and come out of it with bruises at minimal, and Meliodas in particular takes repeated lightning attacks without being shocked into submission. Blades however, appear to still be able to carve up even powerful combatants. Played with when King brings out Chastiefol, one form of which is a Storm of Blades. They're capable of doing incredible and lethal damage as their nature implies, but never seem to really put anyone on the verge of death, particularly Guila, who had the entire barrage aimed at her point-blank.
  • Attack Reflector: Meliodas' power, Full Counter, reflects any attack directed at him with greater power back to the attacker.
  • Badass Creed: The knights of Liones have one. Meliodas and Gilthunder in particular take it rather to heart.

    "Your eyes are to discern evil, your mouth to speak the truth, your heart is to be filled with righteousness, and your sword is to purge evil."

  • Badass Finger Snap: This happens a lot in this series. Expect King to do it every other time he brings out Chastiefol, expect Merlin to do it a few times, and expect Hendrickson to indulge in it once in a while.
  • Bait-and-Switch Character Intro: Most of the title characters are introduced like this. In particular, Meliodas is introduced as some kid who tends a bar and has some unnamed business with the Sins, before revealing his true nature during a fight a little later. He's also seen acting vaguely threatening and like he's about to get into a fight with some of his customers... before it's shown that he was just teasing and is actually a very amiable individual.
  • Barbarian Tribe: A barbarian horde decided to invade Britannia. They were completely destroyed by Gilthunder and Howzer alone.
  • Barbie Doll Anatomy: There are certain instances in the story wherein female characters are completely naked. Fortunately though, their naughty bits aren't drawn for censorship reasons.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Elizabeth's waitress uniform, Ban's initial red attire, and Gowther's second attire show this.
  • Barrier Warrior: Griamore's power, Wall, allows him to create a force field around him.
  • Batman Grabs a Gun: Meliodas is a pacifist that prefers to not kill and even not use actual weapons in lieu of his strength. However upon facing the Armored Giant, an opponent that can't be defeated by pacifist means, Meliodas is forced to break these particular personal vows as they are severely hindering him from doing the right things necessary.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me:
    • Diane fell in love with Meliodas because he treated her like a regular girl and not like a Giant.
    • Ban also decided to follow Meliodas because Meliodas was the only one besides Elaine to accept, in Ban's own words, a shitty person such as himself.
  • Berserk Button: For Meliodas, it's stealing his sword. Ban tried to take it... once. He still has the scar, which is saying something since no other weapon has left a lasting mark on him. In the present time, hurting Elizabeth is also a good way to make Meliodas beat the crap out of you.
  • Betty and Veronica: Elizabeth and Diane to Meliodas. Elizabeth's a royal Betty due to being a generally calm regular human while Diane's a common Veronica due to being a clingy easily jealous exotic giantess.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Each of the Sins, when their Berserk Button has not been pushed, are among the nicest people you could meet. Press that button, though, and they don't hold back.
    • Meliodas in particular, due to being the Sin of Wrath, takes this to extremes. It's implied that the last time he really lost his temper it resulted in an entire kingdom being blasted off the map.
  • Big Red Devil: The Demon who attacked the Forest of the Fairy King is depicted as this.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: A common feature amongst demons and those affected by demon blood.
  • Busman's Holiday: Before they were framed, Meliodas would usually manipulate the team into taking trips together to places like the beach or mountains on their days off. During their play at the beach, they disturbed a kraken that was hurting a local village, and in the mountains destroyed a swarm of dangerous monster bugs plaguing the forest. No one, save Merlin, seems to have noticed this manipulation.

    C-E 

  • Cain and Abel:
    • Dreyfus and Zaratras with the former having killed the latter and framing the Sins for it in order to take over the position of Great Holy Knight.
    • Kay and Arthur per the mythos. When younger, Kay is shown to be a Big Brother Bully who attempted to seriously his younger adopted brother Arthur.
    • Meliodas and his two demon brothers have this dynamic. They are both the Cain to his Abel.
  • Call-Forward: The Ban OVA adds a scene near the end credits which references him using his own blood to provide sustenance to the seed that Elaine gave him.
  • Calling Your Attacks: This happens in virtually every single episode of the anime; whenever a character uses a magic-based attack, they will always call out its name and a text pop-up in both Kanji and English will appear.
  • Casual Danger Dialogue: In the Great Battle Festival arc, Meliodas and Ban spend the entirety of their first fight arguing over whether Elizabeth or Elaine is better... While defeating the bird demons relentlessly attacking them without even realizing it.
  • Central Theme: Sins and atoning for said sins is a recurring theme within the series.
  • Chekhov's Armoury: The story has a number of things that later turn out to be important much later.
    • When Meliodas and Gilthunder meet in the forest, the Holy Knight arrogantly declares he is stronger than any of the Sins. This statement turns out to be an established trust passcode between them if Gilthunder was ever in a desperate situation.
    • Elizabeth's accounts of what to her father and sister in two separate incidents in the past, and the incident wherein both Meliodas and Dr. Dana recover from otherwise fatal injures are brought up again later as it's revealed that Elizabeth has healing powers.
    • The pendant that Veronica gives to Elizabeth prior to the Fighting Festival becomes important during the chaos ensues during it.
    • The magical spheres Ban swiped from Giula in Byzel end up being fundamental when he uses a Hyper Recovery one to heal Diane and Gilthunder from almost lethal injuries.
    • The seed that Elaine gives to Ban in his backstory is brought up later in the story as it's planting is the reason as to how Ban become the new Fairy King.
    • The book that Dreyfus was reading when Gil and Howzer came back from defeating the barbarians, the literal slip up he had that almost killed Elizabeth, the cloth he used to stop her bleeding, all turn out to be important much later on as it's revealed that there's some sort of darker force controlling Dreyfus behind the scenes.
  • Chekhov's Gag: Meliodas fondles Elizabeth's butt in the Forest of White Dreams, somehow swiping her panties in the process. This is what tips him off that she's the real thing, as she was the only "Elizabeth" to refuse to jump, as she had nothing to prevent what would normally be a Panty Shot from being far more revealing.
  • Chekhov's News: Arthur is mentioned early on in the manga. Come 50 or so chapters later, and he appears in person.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Diane gets really jealous when Meliodas interacts with other girls than her, most notably Elizabeth. Sometimes her jealousy is expressed subtly and sometimes it's expressed as large as her size.
  • Clothing Switch: For the cover of chapter 19, four of the characters then are presented as having their attires switched. Ban wears Meliodas' clothes and vice-versa, while Diane does the same with Elizabeth.
  • Colossus Climb: Meliodas, Arthur, and several Camelot Holy Knights do this when they scale the gigantic golem Albion.
  • Compressed Adaptation: The A-1 Pictures anime adaptation manages to squeeze the entire first major story arc of the manga into its first 24 episode season. Said story arc had over 100 chapters worth of content.
  • Cool Helmet: Many characters in the series wear cool helmets that look like they came straight out of Berserk.
  • Cool Sword: As you might imagine, there are a number of these.
  • The Corruption: Demon's Blood is capable of killing creatures or turning them into Demons themselves.
  • Creative Sterility: Fairies lack certain imaginative things that humans normally have. These range from mundane yet otherwise unique looking helmets and clothes, to concepts such as "culture" and "philosophy".
  • Crossover: Suzuki Nakaba, mangaka of the series, had a special Christmas crossover collaboration with Hiro Mashima of Fairy Tail wherein each of them did a short story with the other's characters. For the Seven Deadly Sins, the protagonists (before Gowther joined) visited Magnolia, the hometown of the Fairy Tail guild, for the holidays.
  • Crystal Prison: Meliodas briefly gets trapped in a small crystal charm.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Hendrickson after drinking the blood of a grey demon and transforming into a hybrid delivers this to both the Seven Deadly Sins and a massive force of Liones' Holy Knights. Hendrickson single-handedly incapacitates Gowther, easily keeps Meliodas, Diane, King, and Ban at bay, and decimates dozens of Holy Knights with lethal magic, all while withstanding consecutive, devastating strikes that would kill a normal human or Holy Knight several times over and emerging virtually unscathed. But then Meliodas' demon seal is broken and he repays Hendrickson in kind.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: A number of the Sins revealed so far have back stories which paint them as more than simply Sin-themed criminals. It's also a rule among them that they do not ask each other about their pasts.
    • Meliodas: He received his broken sword from a dying acquaintance. He also supposedly had bouts where he lost control of himself and destroyed a lot of stuff. He was formerly the leader of the Ten Commandments, he was so strong and respected by fellow demons that he was considered the worthy successor to the Demon King. Under certain circumstances he betrayed the whole Demon Clan and killed two of the Ten Commandments. This creates a gap in power that started the war and sealed the Demon Clan 3000 years ago.
    • Ban: He received his immortality when he tried to save a Fountain of Youth from a Demon. The destruction caused by the Demon unfortunately got blamed on him and his greed.
    • King: In relation to Ban, for not being the one who actually protected the fountain, he lost his sister and the forest he lived in was destroyed.
  • Darkest Hour: Meliodas died at the hands of Estarossa. A month after that Brittania has fallen to the Demon Clan led by the Ten Commandments. People are desperate to find strong souls to sacrifice just so they can live.
  • A Day in the Limelight: There's a number of side stories which focus solely on a particular character or two.
    • A short story involving Elizabeth and Hawk going on a simple shopping trip.
    • Ban's backstory which details how he became immortal and a criminal.
    • A short story showing Guila spending her time off with her little brother.
    • A short story of Gowther settling in his own niche of the Boar Hat Bar.
    • King's backstory which details why he left his forest home and how he became a criminal.
    • A short story that fleshes out more of Ban and Elaine's past.
    • A short story of how Arthur met King Baltra Liones.
  • Did You Just Scam Cthulhu?: Merlin's backstory involves her scamming both the Supreme Goddess and Demon King. Born with an incredible magical gift, both the Supreme Goddess and Demon King wanted her allegiance to their respective sides. Merlin, while still a young child, asked for blessings from each to decide whose side to join. From the Demon King, she received all the magical knowledge and protection from Goddess possessions and brainwashing. From the Supreme Goddess, she received Divine Protection that can ward off any level of curses or commandments. In short, she had the ultimate No-Sell on each side. With these in hand, she then refused to take either side. Their wrath at being played by this child resulted in both sides raining all manner of attacks on her hometown.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Diane's power, Creation, is an ability to bend iron like toffee, raise the ground like towers, and turn minerals into sand. It is an ability exclusive to her and other Giants due to their deep connection to nature.
    • Taken to extreme levels when she has her war-hammer Gideon and is capable of launching entire mountains into the air.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Gilthunder did this when visiting Bernia, which is known for their famous ale. Gilthunder mocked their efforts and when a boy, Mead, wanted to get even by putting a worm in his drink as a harmless prank, Gilthunder responded by plunging his sword into the ground and stopping the water flow, preventing the town from making their ale, nearly leading to their economic ruin since it's how they thrive. Given what we later find out, Gilthunder most likely did all of this in order to get Meliodas's attention.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: While escaping from prison, Ban beats up Jericho and steals her clothes, leaving her in her underwear. When the other guards find her, she orders them to mobilize to find the prisoner as well as get her a new outfit. The guards spend several seconds blushing and staring at her before she yells at them to get moving.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?:
    • The scene wherein Ban first meets Sennette almost looks like an attempted rape if it weren't for the fact that in reality Ban was only interested in the dagger in Sennette's possession. This nonetheless was apparently noticed and was therefore omitted in the anime adaption.
    • Ever since their first encounter wherein Ban stole her clothes, Jericho's been asking him to take responsibility especially since he, to quote Jericho, made her into a woman. Sounds like something one would say after a one night stand or so.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: King really wants to spend some time with Diane. However due to varying circumstances and the fact that Diane only has eyes for Meliodas, he's really having a hard time. That is, until Diane's memories return.
  • The Dreaded:
    • The Sins are feared and renowned throughout the kingdom as extremely legendary and powerful criminals.
    • On the other side, the Holy Knights are considered knights among knights who protect Britannia. They are supposed to be heroes but are terrifying beings with each one possessing enough power to match a country's army. They pull a collective face-turn once the possessed Hendricksen is defeated, though.
  • Drop the Hammer: Diane's Holy Weapon is a giant warhammer.
  • Druid: Known as the sorcerers of the forest, druids are those who revere the Goddess Clan and have the distinction of casting a number of White Magic related spells. A number of characters within the series are descended from these druids. Amongst the druids also, there is a particular sect wherein the women act as Apostles of the Goddesses while the men serve as mere priests.
  • Early-Bird Cameo:
    • In the anime, a number of the Sins' sacred treasures are depicted alongside their armored selves early on instead of the apparent placeholder weapons that they had in the manga.
    • In the anime, a number of races can be seen in the opening. Among them are Gray Demons.
    • Gowther apparently appears during the Vaizel Fighting Festival to regain Diane's weapon in the anime before his proper introduction as one of the forms he can change to as detailed in a page of volume 11 of the manga.
  • Ecchi: Apart from actual fanservice scenes, the series stating it has some ecchi elements is usually advertised on the chapter covers.
  • Empty Piles of Clothing: When Oslow the Black Hound first appears and attacks a pair of Holy Knights, it looks like he has devoured them with the only thing remaining of them being their clothes. Later, it's revealed that while he did eat them, he actually teleported them to another location excluding their clothes.
  • Empty Shell: When a person's soul is pushed out of their body by a Demon, they becomes this.
  • Enemy Civil War: It quickly becomes apparent that the Holy Knights are far from a unified front. The (highly permeable) lines are drawn across the factions of Grand Masters Hendrickson and Dreyfus, and they increasingly come to blows.
  • Enemy Mine: King temporarily teams up with the Holy Knights in order to get at Ban when he believes the latter is the one responsible for his sister's death. He only sought Ban and not the other Sins though. The truce falls apart after being reunited with Elaine's ghost in the Capital of the Dead.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": King's name is just a title used by others as a reference to him being the Fairy King. His real name is Harlequin.
  • Everyone Has a Special Move: It appears everyone has their own unique powers base on their personality.
  • Everything's Better with Samurai: Simon from Dawn Roar is pretty much a samurai themed knight in an otherwise King Arthur based manga.
  • Evolving Credits: The second opening sequence has several evolutions to both the opening narration and the sequence itself as the series goes on, showing the state of the kingdom, properly adding Gowther once he's introduced, and eventually showing every introduced Sin without their armor.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Guila, of course.
  • Exact Words:
    • Merlin enters into some negotiations with Zeldris to learn about Elizabeth and the situation in Camelot. Her entire act involves screwing with him with the exact words of her deal.
    • In exchange for handing over Merascylla the person won't attack the rest of the Sins. She does so but she then binds Merascylla's prison in her Perfect Cube to get more questions answered if he wants the spell undone.
    • When finishing these negotiations, the other party warns Merlin if she tries anything, he is ready to strike her down then and there. She swears saying, "...I won't do anything. I won't that is." Cue attack from a third party behind Zeldris.
    • "The one who absorbs all ten commandments shall become the demon king." Really means whoever absorbs all the commandments will have their body taken over by the Demon King and become his new body through Demonic Possession.
    • The And the Adventure Continues ending of the first season of the anime centers around this. Elizabeth is feeling sad about her adventures being over and the Sins leaving to go on another quest, when suddenly Hawk's Mom walks past the castle, and Meliodas climbs down and points out that her quest was to find the Seven Deadly Sins, and she only found six of them (Escanor only appears as an unvoiced background character in flashbacks in the first season). So she's free to join them on their travels until they find the final missing Sin, which she does.
  • Expy: The various armors worn by the Holy Knights make them look like the New Band of the Hawk from Berserk. Fitting as the second generation of Holy Knights bolster their ranks by having potential members drink Demon's blood, an act that's basically a Deal with the Devil which, while differing in method, is what the New Band of the Hawk also did. Incidentally, this act also makes them evil expies of the Grey Wardens from Dragon Age: Origins due to the method of how both join their respective orders.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: Diane's power, Creation, allows her to control metal as well as dirt.

    F-H 

  • Facial Composite Failure: It's a Running Gag that most of the Sins wanted posters are "off" for one reason or another. Sometimes this is justified in story but other times it just seems like they had no idea what the Sin in question looked like.
  • Fan Disservice: Hendrickson arguably qualifies when he's activated the Red Demon blood in him and gotten all buffed up. He looks more muscular and his shirt's gone, and his hair is longer and his beard gone for those who like that...but he's also half covered in dark oozey demon blood at all times holding him together.
  • Fanservice:
    • The series has its share of both Mr. Fanservice and Ms. Fanservice characters along with its ecchi moments.
    • In the anime, the camera suddenly seems supsiciously fond of Hendrickson's collar and shoulders after he enters Gray Demon form.
    • Chapter 132 essentially is a shirtless, all-male training montage. It opens with this tantalizing shot, and then Howzer, Gilthunder, Griamore, Slader, Gowther, Meliodas and Arthur all start their training.
    • The Sins on Vacation special chapter features the titular Sins in swimwear. It includes Ban and Escanor in speedoes, and Diane wearing particular tight fitting giant two piece within the chapter itself. Special mention however goes to Merlin who basically goes naked with nothing but an enchanted seemingly transparent but actually light refracting two piece made from floating water barely covering her "important parts".
  • Fantastic Racism:
    • Certain non-human races tend to be either feared or oppressed by humans depending on the situation. One example would be the mistreatment of werefoxes. Not all humans though have this mentality against other races and it doesn't apply to all races however, those humans that have such feelings tend to cause enough conflict for others from other races to form a bad opinion on humans in general.
    • Humans in turn tend to be looked down by most other races such as giants, fairies, and demons. They're seen as either being too weak with their short lifespans and frail bodies, or too greedy.
  • Fastball Special: Unorthodox method of transportation between towns during emergencies, courtesy of Diane. Most Sins lack safe landing strategies, but make up for it by being Nigh-Invulnerable or possessing Healing Factor.
  • Fertile Blood: Ban's immortality-infused blood restores the Fairy King's Forest which he periodically returns to water the revived Sacred Tree.
  • Filler: The second "season" of the anime consists of four episodes of slice-of-life antics of the Sins while they help rebuild Liones. The actual story resumes in season three.
  • First-Episode Twist: The main character is Meliodas, captain of the Seven Deadly Sins
  • Fighting with Chucks: Ban's holy weapon before it was ironically stolen was a three-stick variant that enhanced his stealing abilities.
  • Flight: This is King's specialty, as he and his spear are able to levitate effortlessly.
  • Flying Seafood Special: During the Vaizel Fighting Festival to regain Diane's weapon, Guila and the Holy Knights with her arrived at there riding upon flying manta ray-like creatures.
  • The Force Is Strong with This One: Various characters, including the Sins, are capable of sensing the power of strong individuals.
  • Foreshadowing:
    • On the cover of chapter 26, the two kids that the Sins met before entering the Capital of the Dead are seen on a crystal. The only other person on a crystal is the deceased Elaine. These foreshadows that the kids were Dead All Along.
    • During the party celebrating Gowther being reunited with the rest of the Sins, Gowther being able to identify who King was based on his smell is brought up. Upon inspecting whether this was true, one of comments was that his smell has a nostalgic feel to it. This foreshadows Diane and King's shared past that would later be revealed as King's flowery smell is one of the things Diane still vaguely remembers from it.
    • When Meliodas quickly recovers from the injuries he sustained while fighting Gilthunder, it's easy to shrug off due to him being ridiculously strong and durable to begin with. However, when Dr. Dana also miraculously recovers from a nearly-fatal wound, it foreshadows Elizabeth's healing powers, which aren't officially revealed until dozens of chapters later.
    • Dreyfus declares a truce so that the Holy Knights and the Sins can deal with the threat posed by Hendricksen. Gowther inquires "Which one of you is saying that?", and though Dreyfus blows it off, it's later clear that Gowther was asking whether the words came from Dreyfus or from the demon possessing him.
    • Estarossa actually being a part of the goddess clan, specifically Mael, was foreshadowed in chapter 113, in Elizabeth's dream where she saw "Estarossa" wearing the symbol of the goddess clan engraved on to his armor in various places
  • Forever War: According to the second movie, the Holy War between the Demons and Goddesses was supposed to be one. The Big Bad of the movie seeks revenge against the Seven Deadly Sins for daring to win the war instead of letting it continue indefinitely, no matter how many problems that might cause for the humans, fairies and giants caught in the middle.
  • Four Is Death: A spell called "Dead Man's Revenge" is triggered by the appearance of a rune-like symbol that happens to look like a sideways 4.

    Denzel: Those stricken by this sacred seal will not only be haunted by the ghosts of those they've slain but those very ghosts will also seek their very lives until they fall dead.

    • And Dreyfus/the demon possessing him has killed a lot of people.
  • Fountain of Youth:
    • Ban gained his immortality from drinking from an actual one. In addition, this also fixed his body at the age he gained his immortality thus granting him an eternally youthful body. Though his hair can still get longer and he can grow a beard, things that would make his appearance look older, these are just minor superficial changes as he still retains a physical body that never grows old.
    • After drinking some Red Demon blood which he altered based on the results of his experiments, Hendrickson turns himself into a younger albeit more muscular version of himself with demon abilities. He doesn't stay too long in this form and much later reverts to his former self.
  • Fox Folk: The Beastmen known as Werefoxes are anthropomorphic foxes.
  • Frame-Up:
    • Prior to the story, the Seven Deadly Sins were framed for killing the Great Holy Knight and Gilthunder's father, Zaratras, and trying to overthrow the kingdom.
    • Diane was falsely accused by a couple of Holy Knights of killing her leader and several of their comrades. Her accusation led to her being recruited for the Seven Deadly Sins.
  • From Bad to Worse: Meliodas gets himself into a very nasty position in Liones when he jumps in to attack Hendrickson. Gilthunder arrives to take up the fight while Hendrickson focuses on Arthur. In the manga, Gilthunder and Meliodas fight evenly but Meliodas gets the upper hand. In the anime, this is reversed, and Gilthunder repeatedly gets the advantage on Meliodas. In both versions, before they can finish, Hendrickson makes short work of Arthur and jumps in, giving Meliodas a hell of a time just surviving. And then Vivian decides to join the fight for more fun, turning it into a three-on-one.
  • Gecko Ending:
    • The first season of the anime ends with the Sins being stated to be heading over to Camelot in order to help Arthur. However before that happens, Meliodas along with the rest comes to Elizabeth in the midst of a meal with her family in order to invite her to continue their adventures together as they haven't yet reunited with Escanor. She accepts and is whisked away. As they're leaving, Ban decides to go somewhere but promises to return. He leaves with King deciding to follow him, a decision by both of them that no one really seems to mind. It basically all ends with an And the Adventure Continues scenario for the main characters. After the credits, a scene shows Gil, Howzer, and Griamore investigating some books that Dreyfus had set up a season Sequel Hook.
    • Although the first season of the anime concludes with an original ending with Elizabeth leaving with the Sins, the second season quickly rectifies this in its very first episode. It's handwaved that this was All Just a Dream that Elizabeth had.
  • Ghostly Gape: During the nightmare sequence in which Gowther Mind Rapes Dreyfus with his powers, the still impaled and bleeding corpse of Zaratras, Dreyfus' brother whom he murdered, appears. As Dreyfus cowers in guilt at this apparition, its eyes and mouth become dark empty abysses which spew out blood all over Dreyfus.
  • Girl in the Tower: Discussed by Gowther when he, Meliodas, and Ban try to guess wherein the capital of Liones Elizabeth had been taken to when she is kidnapped by the Holy Knights.
  • Glamour: Inverted with King. Instead of transforming into a more youthful form, he can take on a older, fatter one. He originally used it as a form of respect rather than a disguise. However after reuniting with the Meliodas, he unintentionally uses it for a wide range of reactions for various hilarious situations.
  • Gluttonous Pig: Hawk is often seen eating any leftovers that may have fallen one way or another. He particularly prides himself on this fact.
  • Golem
    • Diane is capable of making two golems called Fillet and Loin to serve her.
    • The gigantic Albion golems are mountain-sized weapons created by the Demon Clan.
  • Good-Guy Bar: The Boar Hat serves as the base of operations for Meliodas and the Seven Deadly Sins. It's actually a mobile home carried on the back of Hawk's mom, a giant green pig, essentially making it a literal Boar Hat. Incidentally since the Sins are criminals in the setting, it can be seen as a Bad-Guy Bar from a different perspective.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal!: Ban usually doesn't bother dodging despite his immense speed and gets pretty roughed up in his fights. King tries to circumvent this by turning Ban to stone when he knew Ban wouldn't bother dodging his attack. Also used to show just how powerful Meliodas is as he is the only person to ever leave a lasting mark on Ban.
    • Jericho's power basically serves as an antithesis as she's the only person whose attacks Ban doesn't immediately heal from.
    • Gowther also tanks an attack that would have killed a normal human to gain the upper hand in a fight.
  • Great Offscreen War: In the ancient past, there was a great war in which the Human, Fairy, Goddess, and Giant Clans united together to fight and seal away the Demon Clan.
  • Happily Adopted: Elizabeth is actually not the daughter of King Baltra Liones yet she's been happily adopted by the royal family as evidenced wherein Baltra desperately tried to get her down from a tree despite not knowing how to climb. Elizabeth's recounting of the incident opened up a boy from Bernia, Mead, into explaining the troubles the town had with the Holy Knights. He too was Happily Adopted by the entire town when his parents died from an epidemic while traveling through the town. He initially thought he wasn't but after Meliodas' help, learned the truth.
    • Also, as far as Elizabeth is concerned, much as the King is her father, his biological daughters are her sisters.
  • Having a Blast: The Holy Knight Guila has the ability Explosion, which creates explosions with her rapier.
  • Healing Factor: Ban, the Fox's Sin of Greed, has this as one of his two abilities. He is literally unkillable by conventional means, but unconventional means like being Taken for Granite still pose much danger for him. It is unlikely to kill him,but...
  • Hellfire: The fire demons produce is a special kind. It was what destroyed the Forest of the Fairy King which was otherwise immune to regular fire.
  • Heroic Ambidexterity:
    • According the first Databook, Dreyfus who is one of the two main antagonists of the first part is ambidextrous. With the rank of Great Holy Knight, he is incredibly strong, and comes close to killing one of the main protagonists in combat.
    • The first databook also mentions that Gowther is ambidextrous. His ambidexterity is best shown when he wields his Sacred Treasure, a pair of twin arm-mounted Energy Bows with which he can simultaneously shoot a Magic Missile Storm of energy based arrows.
  • Heroic RRoD: While Sunshine gives great power to Escanor Mael reveals to him that the strain of the Grace has damaged the Escanor's body to the point where taking it again would kill him.
  • Hidden Villain: The Living Shadow that is possessing Dreyfus. Strongly hinted to be the instigator of all the bad things that have happened to this point.
  • High Fantasy: The series has a high fantasy feel what with its title characters who fight against enemies who are numerous and corrupt in a fantastical world filled with fairies and other magical beings.
  • High School A.U.: A special side spinoff which advertises Uno Fog Bar hairspray features the various characters in a high school setting. Of note, Diane is depicted as a normal sized human, a number of the characters just simply wear school uniforms over their full body armor, and Gilthunder is a Student Council President who has a bit of an Out-of-Character Moment when his hairspray is stolen.
    • Later, a more proper High School A.U. spinoff based was created. It's however separate from the first incarnation due to some differences. Noteworthy is that Diane is a giant school girl rather than a regular human one.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard:
    • The Ten Commandments aren't immune to their own powers and abilities. This means if Galan, the Commandment of Truth, lies, his own power will petrify him.
    • Gowther uses his usual mental attack to destroy Escanor in a match between them. However, while the Illusion!Merlin decries Escanor, claiming him to be someone she would never love, it makes Escanor realize it doesn't matter if Merlin ever reciprocates. Her presence in his life is all he needs. It is hope, kind, warm, and guiding, just like the sun. Cue him transforming into Dayform in the middle of the night.
  • Hufflepuff House: Out of the five races, the Giants and Fairies get the short end of the stick in regards to the plot compared to the other three.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl:
    • Ban and Elaine. Since Elaine is a fairy, this would be true of them even if Ban were not abnormally tall for a human, at around seven feet tall. As a result, with her feet on the ground, Elaine doesn't even reach Ban's chest.
  • Humans Are Special:
    • In King's backstory, it's stated that despite humans having shorter lives than fairies and often warring with one another, they are capable of making things like uniquely looking helmets and clothes, and have concepts such as "culture" and "marriage". These otherwise mundane things make humans fascinating to fairies and the like.
    • Gowther, who is clearly something that isn't human, finds the heartfelt human stories to be fascinating.
    • In an omake showing more of Ban and Elaine's backstory, Elaine questions human greed, namely desireing more than is necessary, for which Ban gives the answer that because human lives are so short they want to leave a mark on the world.
  • Human Pincushion: The Great Holy Knight Zaratras was found propped up dead this way with several spears and swords sticking through him.
  • Hurricane of Euphemisms: Howzer unleashes a set of these when fighting a human-sized Diane in a tournament, which Meliodas commends him for. Too bad Howzer didn't actually mean them that way, going so far as to Face Fault and clear the air before continuing his match.

    Howzer: Just lie back and leave everything to my magic hands! I promise it won't hurt. I'm gonna make you feel like you're flyin'!
    Meliodas: That guy's amazing! Everything he says is sexual.

    I-K 

  • Identical Grandson: In King's backstory, the grandson of a hunter he met looks exactly like the original hunter albeit without a telltale scar.
  • Immortality Inducer: The Fountain of Youth which granted Ban's immortality is this. Typically just simply drinking a small amount of the magical waters that flowed from the eponymous cup would prolong a person's lifespan by a number of years, how much depended on the amount drunk. Drinking the entire contents of the cup though grants eternal youth and immortality however at the cost of the cup losing its ability to produce its life sustaining waters, hence was part of the case that led to Ban becoming immortal.
  • Immortality Seeker: Ban sought out the Fountain of Youth in order to become immortal. His reason for doing this was that he believed that if he lived long enough, something good would eventually happen for him. He gave up this quest when he learned that it would destroy the forest. Unfortunately, he still became immortal via Elaine's Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice:
    • The Great Holy Knight Zaratras was impaled to death with several spears and swords through his body.
    • Ban is sometimes the victim of this but survives it due to being immortal.
  • Impossible Thief: Ban is capable of stealing an object a great distance away, and even an opponent's heart with a blunt three-stick nunchaku without any attachment. He can even steal a person's stats and power, like taking Meliodas' strength during one fight, or a vampire's awareness of being full and the vampire finds itself now a blood-filled balloon, immovable and an easy target.
  • Idiot Crows: Not with a crow per say but with a bird with a similar call that nonetheless fulfills the trope. After the incident with the Vaizel Fight Festival to regain Diane's weapon, Hawk proudly claims to himself aloud that he almost defeated Guila in their last battle. Cue a nearby bird making a call that sounds like "Idiot" in Japanese in light of his statement. For good measure, the bird even poops on Hawk.
  • Inspector Javert: Due to whoever framed the Sins as well as various rumors, Elizabeth's sister, Veronica, steadfastly believes the Sins are manipulating Elizabeth for something. From what we've seen of the Sins' pasts however, it's obvious she's not getting the full story.
  • Interspecies Romance:
    • King, who is a fairy, is in love with Diane, who is a giant.
    • Elaine, another fairy and King's sister, is in love with Ban, a human.
    • Diane in turn had a massive crush on Meliodas, a demon. While she loses her memory of King twice, she does regain them and falls back in love with him.
    • Meliodas and Elizabeth; there's a few reasons that the guy is a lot older than he looks. It turns out that their's is probably the worst case in the series. Meliodas is a high ranking demon while Elizabeth was an equally high-ranking goddess, who died and has since been repeatedly reincarnated. And there's no indication that any of her 106 reincarnations have been anything like a demon, and were in all probability human.
  • Jerkass Gods: The leaders of the Demon and Goddess clans cursed Meliodas and Elizabeth for falling in love. Meliodas never aged past the day he was cursed and Elizabeth is reincarnated, destined to meet him and fall in love. However over time her memories will resurface of their past life and three days later, she will die to begin the process anew with Meliodas having to keep watching her be killed over and over no matter what he does.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: In Ban's backstory, when he went after the elixir of immortality, Elaine told him that if he were to take the elixir, the forest surrounding it would die. Ban promptly decided that it wasn't worth it (claiming that the wildberries used in one of his favorite drinks was grown in that forest). He may be a thief, but he is not a monster.
  • Just Following Orders: This is how a goddess defends herself and the actions of her fellows when it is revealed they killed all the prisoner demons and demonic children they held captive because of orders from the higher ranking goddesses. Derrierie is unimpressed and kills the goddess and her host in a furious rage.
  • Knight Templar: Apart from being actual knights, the Liones Holy Knights are willing to overthrow their king, subjugate and kill innocent civilians, and other atrocities in order to prepare for a Holy War that was prophesied to come. They're also willing to use a Demon to enhance their powers.

    L-N 

  • Lady and Knight: Veronica and Griamore have this dynamic.
  • Lampshade Hanging: It is amazing what a lack of a small beard, longer hair, and no Hellish Pupils can change. Dreyfus has to make sure the man he's talking to in his own memories is really Hendrickson.
  • Land Shark: Sandcrawlers are carnivorous desert monsters capable of swimming through ground as if it were water and basically look like seal shark amphibian things. Being around the size of Hawk at their smallest, they typically prey on small creature and thus are considered low on the danger level. They however are very territorial and would attack anything that enters their domain such as people and horses. Furthermore, Sandcrawlers can get really big and those that matured into full-blown adults are known as Earthcrawlers. Significantly larger, Earthcrawlers can span dozens of feet long and are extremely formidable in power. There have even been documented cases of not only buildings but also Tyrant Dragons in the stomachs of the larger ones and those exceeded beyond 100 feet in size. Earthcrawlers can even get so big that they can easily swallow a regular sized giant in one bite with room to spare. Many Sandcrawlers and their adult forms the Earthcrawlers are found in the labyrinth of the Vaizel Fighting Festival hosted by the Ten Commandments due to having been displaced when the massive structure was formed.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: In her past, Diane didn't go for the kill and spared the lives of some barbarians who fought her and Matrona. When the Knights of Liones betrayed Diane and Matrona, capturing Diane and leaving Matrona for dead, one of the barbarians Diane sparred arrives, and saves Matrona's life.
  • Lean and Mean: Galan of the Ten Commandments' Truth who looks like a skeletal suit of armor.
  • Lethal Chef: Meliodas. Under his ownership, the Boar Hat tavern became famous as having the best ale around and the absolute worst food.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: While the Sins' antics can be charming and quirky, once they decide to cut loose... run.
  • Let's Split Up, Gang!:
    • The Sins split up when they came across the corpse of the Great Holy Knight, Zaratras, and were surrounded by the Knights of the kingdom. A main plot point of the story is Putting the Band Back Together after a ten-year separation.
    • Meliodas invokes this again by angering and trolling the Ten Commandments to do this trope. He justifies it because if they are apart, aiming to reclaim their power, they will be easier to defeat than if they are all in one group.
  • Light Is Not Good: The Holy Knights are the equivalent of paladins, and many of them are incredibly cruel.
    • The higher members of the Goddess Clan are hardly any better, especially Rueduciel, who behind his benign façade is a genocidal maniac prejudiced against demons. If Cursed By Light is canon, the Supreme Deity is worse.
  • Lightning Lash: Galla of the Six Knights of Black fights with an energy infused whip. By spinning it into a circle it can release a blast of energy.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: Dreyfus is an ambitious Well-Intentioned ExtremistKnight Templar who won't let anything stand in his way, even going as far as to stage a coup against his king. Dreyfus' son Griamore is a loyal and devoted knight who has sworn to protect one of the kingdom's princesses. Their contrast is even highlighted by their powers. Dreyfus' power is to literally blast through anything in his way. Griamore's a Barrier Warrior. Despite their contrasts though, Dreyfus is a "Well Done, Dad!" Guy who cares deeply for his son.
  • Locked in the Dungeon: When the Holy Knights took over the kingdom, Princess Margaret was locked in the dungeons. However, it seems like she did so on her own volition. Elizabeth as well gets locked in a different cell in the same dungeons along with Hawk who was accidentally carried along by a teleporting masked Holy Knight.
  • Long-Lived: Fairies and Giants have extremely long lifespans compared to humans.
  • Longevity Treatment:
    • The Fountain of Youth which granted Ban's immortality was normally this prior to certain events. The waters that flowed from it had rejuvenating powers and drinking them would add years to a person's lifespan, the number of which depended on the amount partaken. A mere lick of the waters would add ten years of life while a simple swallow would add a hundred. Drinking the entire contents of the cup grants immortality however at the cost of what the waters were actually used by the Fairy Clan for. The waters from the Fountain of Youth in truth were used to sustain the Fairy King's Forest. When Ban drank the entire contents of the cup and gained his immortality during that infamous incident in his past, the lifeblood of that forest which could've healed it from the damage suffered that day was lost or so it was believed.
    • Though the original Fairy King's Forest was lost, Ban was able to create a new one with the seed Elaine gave him. To sustain it in the absence of the original Fountain of Youth, Ban uses his own blood to help it grow as he is essentially the new vessel for the Fountain of Youth that pours forth life.
  • Lord Country: Princess Elizabeth and the rest of the royal family share their surname with the name of their kingdom, Liones.
  • The Lost Woods: A number have appeared in the series so far.
    • One is the Forest of White Dreams, a foggy forest inhabited by imps called Hide and Seekers and the location where Diane hid.
    • Another is the Forest of the Fairy King, the home of King and Elaine, which unfortunately was burnt down by a demon.
    • A third is the revived Forest of the Fairy King. Said forest was revived by Ban planting the seed given to him from Elaine in a new location. He did this at some point before allowing himself to be imprisoned in the Baste Dungeon.
  • Love Confessor: Chapter 110 "Confession" has Elizabeth confessing to Diane she's in love with Meliodas and in return Diane confesses she has realized she's in love with King.
  • Love Dodecahedron: Meliodas is protective of Elizabeth and is fond of groping her, though it's unclear what exactly he feels when he's doing it and if he might be seeing her as his deceased lover, Liz. Elizabeth herself is definitely in love with him, saying it feels like she's known him for a very long time. It is later revealed that Elizabeth is Liz's reincarnation, and Meliodas is perfectly aware of this (although she isn't). When she is first introduced, Diane is initially in love with Meliodas for being nice to her in the past however her feelings aren't reciprocated. King, in turn, is in love with Diane due to a shared past however his feelings are likewise initially not reciprocated due to complicated matters. When she regains her memories of the past, however, Diane later realizes she's actually in love with King. The relationship though is hampered partly due to Diane not making her feelings more clear to King, and due to him being oblivious to them as result of him deciding to completely give up pursuing a relationship with her so that she could be with Meliodas. From the sidelines, Howzer at least greatly respects Diane, possibly more, though he's not much of a factor in all of this.
  • Love Triangle:
    • Gilthunder and Princess Margaret are in love with one another. Vivian however is absolutely obsessed with Gilthunder. So much so that she took Margaret hostage when they found out who really killed Gil's father in order put him on her own personal leash. Said act caused Gilthunder to adopt a Jerkass act to protect Margaret.
    • Ban and Elaine are in love with each other despite life and death separating them. Complicating this however is that Jericho, despite refusing to accept it herself, has apparently fallen in love with Ban after he saved her after she transformed into a Demon.
  • Magic Knight: Many characters from both the main protagonists and main antagonists fit this description as they are both inhumanly strong and possess magical abilities.
  • The Magnificent Seven Samurai: The eponymous Seven Deadly Sins are seven extremely powerful criminals who in order to atone for heinous crimes, became knights for the Liones Kingdom.
  • Major Injury Underreaction: The more badass a character is, the more likely it is they will display this. Frequent offenders are Meliodas (thanks to his sheer power - plus he takes a fist to the face with the most deadpan of expressions every time he's punished for groping Elizabeth), Ban (who has the most potent Healing Factor this side of fiction) and Gowther (who, being a golem, is barely inconvenienced by such little things as decapitation and dismemberment).
  • Mark of the Beast: As Meliodas becomes more and more demonic he gets covered in a black mark that spreads as he gets stronger and stronger and is changed into a variety of offensive shapes in his fight with Helbram. He later learns to control it to the point that he can concentrate it in a small spot.
  • Mayfly–December Romance: Elaine, a more than 700 year old fairy, fell in love with Ban and, in reciprocation, he has sworn to make her his despite her being dead.
  • Medieval European Fantasy: The general setting of the series is medieval fantasy complete with knights and princesses based around the time of Arthurian England.
  • Miscarriage of Justice: Although the public generally have a favorable view towards the titular heroes due to them constantly showing up to save the day, it should not be forgotten that most members of the Seven Deadly Sins are not guilty of the attrocities they are branded with along with their sin. Had Bartra and Meliodas not intervened, most members would either have been executed or is currently serving jail time for a crime they did not commit.
    • Meliodas, the sin of Wrath, was accused of massacring the whole town of Danafor and wiping the town off the map, leaving a giant crater in its place. What really happened was Fraudrin, one of the Ten Commandments, has massacred all inhabitants of the town and killed Liz right in front of Meliodas. Unable to contain his wrath, he lost control of his power and destroyed the town. Although responsible for wiping the town off the map, all inhabitants are already dead prior to Meliodas going berserk.
    • Diane, the sin of Envy, was sentenced to death for killing Matrona, her mentor, out of jealousy and trying to cover it up by murdering the Liones Holy Knights who have witnessed the crime. What really happened was that the Liones Holy Knights had hired the giants as mercenaries in order to battle the foreign savages. However, that turns out to be a ruse as the real plan was to defeat Matrona in order for the holy knights to make a name for themselves. Matrona was hit by a poisonous arrow as a result of shielding Diane from their attacks. With Matrona succumbing to the poison after inflicting 330 casualties to the knights, Diane lost her will to resist and was subsequently arrested and framed by the survivors of the ambush group.
    • Ban, the sin of Greed, was sentenced to death for destroying the Fairy King's Forest and killing the Fountain of Youth's Holy Maiden, Elaine, all in order to satisfy his greed for immortality. Although Ban did try to drink the Fountain of Youth, he quickly changed his mind after Elaine explained to him that the forest will die without the fountain. Over the course of a week, Ban and Elaine quickly bonded and fell in love with each other. However, a red demon suddenly appeared at the forest and both were mortally wounded as a result of its attack. Elaine, in an act of self sacrifice, passed the Fountain of Youth to Ban and with his newfound immortality, successfully slew the red demon.
    • King, the sin of Sloth, was sentenced to 1000 years in prison for abandoning his duty as a Fairy King and turning a blind eye to the massacre of humans for centuries, which was committed by a fairy. What really happened was that a group of fairies including Helbram, King's best friend, were tricked by human merchants and butchered as merchandises. King, worried that the group of fairies hasn't returned yet, abandoned his position to seek out his friend and left Elaine to take care of the forest. King finally found the human merchants, but was attacked and knocked out, resulting in the loss of his memories. In the meantime, Helbram, who survived the attack, grew to resent humans and indiscriminately massacred them. It was only after King recovered his memories and found out that Helbram has survived, that he chose to kill Helbram in order to stop the indscriminate killing of humans.
    • Gowther, the sin of Lust, was accused of raping and murdering Princess Nadja of Liones. What really happened was that Nadja suffered from an illness and was dying as a result. After hearing her last words and passing away, Gowther, unable to accept the fact that she has died, tore out his own artifical heart in an effort to bring Nadja back to life. This attempt failed and to make matters worse, a few soldiers walked into her room at the time, mistaking Gowther for a rapist and a murderer.
  • Mobile Kiosk: Due to the Boar Hat being carried on a giant pig, the bar can be moved around the land to serve various other customers in other places. As such, it often comes off as The Little Shop That Wasn't There Yesterday to people who come across the bar for the first time.
  • Mobile Maze: For the first round of the Vaizel Fighting Festival that the Ten Commandments host, a gigantic canyon-like labyrinth is erected from the very landscape itself to thin out those who've dared take up their challenge. The labyrinth automatically manipulates the earth it's made of to challenge those who dare enter it. The labyrinth's at least 300 foot tall walls which dwarf regular-sized giants move to prevent anyone from simply bypassing through it. This includes restoring broken parts to prevent anyone from simply breaking straight through, and shooting out pillars to block anyone simply jumping to the top of it. Also to prevent anyone from leaving, once someone enters the labyrinth through one of its many openings, it immediately blocks off the way used. Within the very labyrinth itself, there are various traps laid hidden in certain parts. To name a few, there are pillars that pop out from the ground and walls like springs to propel anyone who gets near them like a pinball, pitfall-like fissures that open up from otherwise solid ground into stalagmite laden pits which skewer anyone who drop into them, and revolving walls that separate people from one another. These along with whatever monstrous creature whose natural habitat was caught up in the labyrinth's creation provide the challenge.
  • Mr. Fanservice:
    • Drink whenever Ban loses his shirt, and you'll be drunk in no time.
    • Escanor gets buff during the daytime, and daytime happens pretty often.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Diane and Elizabeth.
  • Magic Mushroom: There are a variety of sentient mushroom-like creatures that produce magical spores. One of which is capable of shrinking people with spores if frightened.
  • Mushroom Man: There a variety of sentient mushroom creatures that inhabit Britannia.
  • The Need for Mead: The Boar Hat is a typical fantasy tavern.
  • Non-Indicative Name: The Boar's Hat tavern is actually located on the back, not head, of a female pig. But then again, the Sow's Backpack doesn't sound as good.
  • Noodle Incident: When explaining how pathetically weak King is without his weapon, Meliodas recounted that King lost a fight with a mere cat who stole his snacks.
  • Noodle People: The second Albion to appear is noticeably very skinny and noodle-like in body structure.
  • Not Just a Tournament:
    • In the Vaizel Fighting Festival in which the Sins enter to regain Diane's holy weapon, some Holy Knights infiltrate the tournament in order to capture the Sins.
    • Another Vaizel Fighting Festival happens later on but it's held by the demons in order to acquire human souls more easily.

    O-Q 

  • Odd Couple: Two of the Ten Commandments, Monspiet and Derriere, are often seen together. Monspiet is male, completely covered with a cloak, and a sophisticated speaker while Derriere is female, barely clothed, and is so rudely terse (her version of "long story short" is "straight from the ass") that Monspiet has to translate for her.
  • Obstructionist Pacifist: Despite being the Sin of Wrath, Meliodas is a Technical Pacifist who chooses to be Willfully Weak and not kill his opponents. While this mindset works out early on in the manga as he and his fellow Sins are vastly more powerful than their opponents, it becomes a deterrent when they encounter the Armored Giant. Not only is this demon so strong that only using their full strength and killing it is the only way to stop it, but killing it is also the only merciful thing to relieve its suffering. Meliodas initially doesn't want to go this route and even hinders comrades of his that want to. It's only when the gravity of the whole matter is apparent to him that he decides to actuallystop holding back.
  • One-Man Army: Each individual Holy Knight is considered the equal of a thousand men. When the northern barbarians invade with an army of three thousand men, two knights working together are able to wipe the army out with minimal effort. High ranking knights and protagonists take it further, to the point that army of Holy Knights sent to intercept protagonists comment that they weren't even able to slow them down.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted with two characters named Elizabeth. One is the princess and the other, known more as Liz, was Meliodas' former lover. But then it turns out to be played straight after all.
  • Only Knownby Their Nickname:
    • Meliodas' former lover is primarily referred to by her nickname Liz.
    • Most folk know King by his title rather than his real name of Harlequin. Of worth noting, King is a nickname he choose to call himself in reference to his title.
  • Only Mostly Dead: Guila, one of the Holy Knights, stabs and puts herself in a state of near death in order to pursue the Sins to the Capital of the Dead, a place only either the dead or people with a shared memory with the dead can enter.
  • Our Demons Are Different: They're HUGE, practically ogres, are incredibly destructive, and have multiple hearts. And those are the weakest ones.
  • Our Fairies Are Different: King and his sister, Elaine, are long living child-like wingless humanoids capable of levitating themselves and other things. King, though, can transform himself into an older, fatter version of himself as he sees it as a form of respect when dealing with royals and others.
    • There is also Oslow who is a fairy type Hell Hound capable of teleporting people to other places by swallowing them.
    • Apparently King and Elaine are so far the only wingless fairies. Other fairies actually have wings.
  • Our Giants Are Bigger:
    • Diane, the Serpent's Sin of Envy, is a very attractive young lady... who happens to be enormous. She's too big to fit in most buildings, and actually laments her great height, since it means she can't interact normally with Meliodas, on whom she has a major crush.
    • Bigger than Diane and apparently the few other Giants she supposedly knows is the mountain sized golem Albion.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Low ranking vampires aren't that powerful and act almost like mindless zombies. They likewise can be destroyed in a similar way via decapitation or complete dismemberment of the body. Higher ranking vampires possess magical abilities like other powerful characters within the series and are more sentient. They also can't be killed so easily through dismemberment as shown with Orlondi who manages to remain alive despite being reduced to only an eyeball by Ban. Vampires as a whole are twice as powerful during the night.
  • Outlaw Town: Ravens, the town of thieves which Ban in his youth grew up in.
  • Party of Representatives: As noted by Gowther, the main protagonists consists of individuals of different races and dispositions such as there being an immortal, a giant, a fairy, and a pig to name a few.
  • The Pearly Gates: During the Holy War, a portal between the realm of Brittania and the Celestial Realm - home world of the Goddess Race and the Supreme Deity - exists at Stigma's headquarters the Light of Grace. When the demon armies launch an attack there, it is revealed to have been nothing more than a distraction so that Melascula and Gowther could convert the portal to the Celestial Realm into a portal into the Demon Realm. Or at least that was what Melascula intended, Gowther having tricked her into creating a portal to where his creator (also named Gowther) was imprisoned.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Elizabeth's hair covers her right eye.
  • Personality Powers: Well, not entirely. Ideas and experiences also play a fact in what magical power manifests in a person. Dreyfus explains that his power, Break, is a result of his indomitable will that allows him to forge on through any obstacle without faltering, and its primarily physical power allows him to decimate his enemies and overpower attacks thrown at him. Hendrickson's power is a little more event-based, as he developed it from desperately wanting to leave his job as a child, which involved watching corpses that were in danger of being filled with evil spirits and reanimated. The fact that it doesn't work on demons is implied to be because of his fear of them.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Meliodas, in his backstory, wiped out the kingdom of Danafor single-handedly when he lost control of his powers in the past.
  • Play-Along Prisoner: Ban spent five years locked up in The Alcatraz, kept secure in his cell by being literally nailed to the wall, and kept on a starvation diet. When he learns that some of the other Sins are in the area, he pulls himself off the wall, yanks the spikes out of his body, and kicks the door to his cell down.
  • "Pop!" Goes the Human: There's a 50/50 chance of this happening to a human who drinks demon blood.
  • Power Levels: There's a power level system that determines an individual's abilities and it can be measured through a Magical Accessory called Balor's Power Eye. An individual's power level is the sum of three different stats. These stats are Power which measures an individual's magical abilities, Strength which measures their physical abilities, and Spirit which measures their willpower in battle. These power levels can determine whether or not a person is Holy Knight material. The standards for different kingdoms vary, but for the Liones kingdom, a power level of at least 300 is required for a person to qualify for knighthood.
  • Powers Do the Fighting: King uses his Flying and Morph Weapon Chastiefol to do most of his fighting since he is a Squishy Wizard who apparently lost a fight with a mere cat who stole his snacks.
  • Pragmatic Adaptation: While the anime adaptation by A-1 Pictures changes some things, some of said changes could be considered pragmatic in a way.
    • The scene wherein Ban meets Sennette in Baste Dungeon is omitted and how Sennette is freed is changed. Considering the original manga scene had a shirtless almost predatory Ban look like he was about to do something nasty to a shackled and helpless Sennette, the omission is understandable even if in reality Ban was only interested in the dagger that Sennette had in her possession. This change is a bit notable as most other displays of fanservice and violence have been left unaltered in the anime adaptation.
    • Ban's backstory is integrated into the main story as flashbacks rather than being a separate sidestory like in the manga. Only a few minor details are left out however the first OVA of the series covers the backstory in whole.
    • Starting with an Early-Bird Cameo during the Vaizel Fighting Festival to regain Diane's weapon, Gowther's introduction to the story and reunion with the rest of the Sins is changed significantly from what actually happened in the manga. It paints his relationship with the Armored Giant in a more sympathetic light though at the expense of his relationship with Pelliot as the latter and his friends are Adapted Out.
    • Like Ban's backstory, Guila's visit with her brother on her day off is integrated into the main story rather than as separate sidestory. The only difference from that of the manga is that it takes place after the Vaizel Fighting Festival to regain Diane's weapon rather than before it based on certain dialogue. Said dialogue though was excluded and the event's placement after the tournament better ties in with future events related to it.
    • King's backstory is likewise integrated into the main story as a flashback rather than as separate sidestory.
    • The anime has a crow usually seen in scenes with Gilthunder. Said crow is later revealed to be a chimera that's been keeping tabs on Gil, just like the one that's been keeping Margaret hostage.
  • Prized Possession Giveaway: In a Season 3 Episode, set 45 years before the events of the series, Nadja comforts Gowther by gifting him one of her favorite storybooks, so he can enjoy reading it when he feels sad or depressed. Funnily, Gowther gives it back to her after he reads all of it by merely flicking through the pages in less than a minute.
  • Product Placement: The first High School A.U. spinoff was basically created just to advertise the Uno Fog Bar hairspray.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: Typical members of the Giant clan. Their entire culture revolves around fighting until they get a glorious death on the battlefield, even if it means that their numbers are gradually dwindling.
  • Psychological Projection: Variation: Diane's infatuation with Meliodas is actually her buried memories of her close childhood relationship with King projecting on to her Captain, who was the first person to be kind to her after King erased her memories. She had recently remembered and was on the verge of confessing to King when she got KO'd and forgot everything except that she's a member of the Giant Clan.
  • Public Domain Artifact: The Fountain of Youth which granted Ban his immortality, a magical cup that's ever flowing out with waters that have life sustaining properties, is combination of two famous things from lore. Its name and the magical waters that pour out of it like a spring make it a clearly obvious reference to the mystical fountain of the same name. Given it's a cup and considering the series takes various inspirations from the Arthurian Legend, this is also a reference to the Holy Grail, an artifact that's sought after in many Arthurian stories.
  • Pull Yourself Down the Spear: At one point Ban was impaled by an enemy tentacle and pulled himself closer so he could get in hitting distance.
  • Purple Is the New Black: Hendrickson's Gray demon form is understandably a shadowy grey, but in the anime this is almost constantly rendered as a muted purple to prevent lighting problems.

    R-T 

  • Really 700 Years Old: King and Elaine are fairies with child-like bodies but are actually really old. Because of this, King opted for an older, fatter illusion of himself before the Sins split up in the past. Meliodas is also actually older than he looks. For him, it's hinted to be some sort of illusion as a disguise for probably being a demon of some sort.
  • Recruiting the Criminal: Years after having been branded as criminals after their frameup, the Sins were sought after in order to battle the Holy Knights and save the kingdom.
  • Red Light District: The Black Pleasure District, Bellford which has food stalls and prostitutes.
  • Reincarnation Romance: A particularly cruel Deconstruction between Meliodas and Elizabeth, as punishment for betraying their respective sides in the Holy War. Elizabeth loses her memories with each resurrection, but will always encounter and fall in love with Meliodas. However, should her memories return, she will inevitably, inescapably die 3 days later (should her memories not return, he gets to watch as she slowly ages and dies of natural causes while he remains young). Meliodas maintains his memories; his curse acting more like Resurrective Immortality, but he does lose his emotions between lives. The real gut-punch of the curse though is that he will always be forced to witness Elizabeth's inevitably deaths. He's had to watch the woman he loves die horribly 106 times already and according to him, It Never Gets Any Easier
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Several characters and elements are based and named after various things found in the Arthurian legends.
  • Resurrection/Death Loop: A goddess was cursed to spend eternity being repeatedly resurrected as a human. Every time she regains her memories, she dies within three days and is reborn immediately as a new infant. Elizabeth is her 107th reincarnation.
  • Right Out of My Clothes: Happens to a pair of Holy Knights who get eaten by Oslow, King's pet Black Hound. They were actually teleported to a crowded village elsewhere. However just to humiliate them, King just had them teleported without their clothes.
  • Romantic Spoonfeeding: Diane feeds King like this during a flashback of their time together when she was a child and she was taking care of King while he had amnesia.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Elizabeth, in spite of being a princess, goes to great lengths to help the Sins on their quest, and often regrets not being able to do more. She saves two of the Sins by stealing the magic bell off a Holy Knight's staff... by biting the bell off while she's getting beaten bloody with it.
  • RPG-Mechanics Verse: The story has a number elements that makes it feel like a RPG. A medieval fantasy setting wherein almost everyone has a special magical skill which range from Status buffs to Healing spells. The power ranking used in the story in fact resembles something out of a RPG as Power Levels are determined by three different stats. A lot of this makes sense as the author has stated that he has been influenced by Hironobu Sakaguchi, creator of Final Fantasy, as he tries to emulate the same amount of effort and love that was taken in the creation of various characters from games such Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger.
  • Rule #1: There are a set of rules that go with being a Sin. Rule number three is "A Sin shall ask no questions of another member's sin," according to Ban.
  • Scare the Dog: When he is first encountered, the Black Hound Oslow is frightened by Ban and Meliodas when he senses their respective Killing Intent and Animal Battle Aura.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can:
    • The Eternal Coffin of Darkness which is where the Demon Clan were sealed after they lost their fight against the other clans.
    • The vampires were sealed away by the Demon Clan because of their betryal. They were supposed to have been executed but Meliodas' brother was in love with one of them so he "spared" them. Unfortunately by the time Meliodas and the Sins fought them the vampire lover was tired of living as an immortal monster so she was killed by Meliodas.
  • Selective Magnetism: Part of Ban's ability, Snatch, allows him to pull things to himself from great distances like a magnet.
  • Seven Deadly Sins: Each of the Sins has a mark representing a sin, and has powers related to that sin. Their personalities and back stories, though, play with the sin they represent.
    • Wrath: Instead of a stereotypical warmongering Blood Knight, Meliodas is a trickster-like Mellow Fellow who is often seen fondling Elizabeth one way or another. In reality however, he is the typeyou don't want to see wrathful. His past with what happened with Danafor involved his wrath going completely out of hand on epic proportions. Because of what happened, he is generally a pacifist by nature unless push comes to shove. Due to a curse placed by his father the Demon King, Meliodas unfortunately becomes more of a typical wrathful Blood Knight as his emotions are stripped away each time he comes back from death.
    • Envy: Diane is generally envious of regular sized girls as she can't interact normally with Meliodas. In reality though, what she really envies deep down are people who are in love. With her abilities, she's considered as a prodigy even among her fellow giants, basically someone who others would be envious of. Her backstory involves her being accused of killing her fellow giantess Matrona out of jealousy. In reality, the real perpetrators of the crime were some Liones knights who wanted to be the envy of others via killing the two giantess, and she was made a scapegoat for the whole mess that occurred.
    • Greed: Ban is a thief that would steal anything that isn't nailed down. His backstory, however, is a subversion of greed as he decided not to steal the elixir of immortality upon learning the truth behind it and even unselfishly tried to save Elaine and it from a demon. He unfortunately was blamed for the destruction for the forest on accusation of greed.
    • Sloth: King carries around a pillow and generally floats around. His so called human form also looks like a slothful fat guy. In addition, he is so pathetically weak by himself that his strength heavily relies on his Sacred Treasure and magic. His backstory involves his dereliction of his responsibilities to keep the peace between the humans and fairies. However, it is a subversion as in reality he didn't willingly neglect them, he just suffered from amnesia for a long time and only Remembered Too Late. Nonetheless he was accused of sloth via doing nothing. Him being constantly too late to do the right thing is a bane of his as he was too late to save his sister who took up his duties to guard the elixir of life, and he was too late to protect Diane.
    • Lust: Gowther is an extremely effeminate looking man but he has a very emotionless personality that lacks, among other things, traits normally stereotyped with lust. His powers are more light and mental based rather than physical but the way they are used invoke themes of lust. Two noteworthy techniques of his are a Lotus-Eater Machine power to trap opponents with illusions to show their heart's desire, and a power that basically Mind Rapes a person. Also while he doesn't lust in the traditional sense, he does however long to acquire feelings to a degree that it could be considered as lust. Then there's the fact that he's actually the "Selflessness" of the Ten Commandments or more specifically the real Gowther who created and used him as an avatar was, a thing that greatly contrasts lust. His supposed crime that made him a Sin involved the intimate relationship he had with the elder sister of Baltra Liones, Nadja, before he threw away his magic heart along with his feelings and memories. Due to a misunderstanding, it looked like he had raped and killed the princess but in reality what really happened was the exact opposite of a lustful crime.
    • Gluttony: Merlin is a sexy stripperificLady of Black Magic that even the coverpage of chapter 85 lampshades by mistaking her for the Sin of Lust. Her Sin title and her moniker of Crimson Pig are clear references to the Gluttonous Pig concept however, she isn't even remotely close to anything that could be associated as a Big Eater or anything else related to overconsumption of food. She does though have an insatiable hunger except it's for knowledge rather than food. Her hunger for knowledge is so insatiable in fact that she used a spell to suspend her own body's time in order to pursue her endless research without the worry of a normal limited lifespan. Additionally, she has an over excess of magical power and spells. All of which is aided by her magic ability Infinity, an extremely hax power that allows her spells to remain for eternity unless she herself dispels them.
    • Pride: At night, Escanor is basically a pathetically weak skinny polite wimp that constantly apologizes for his sorry ass existence, the complete opposite of pride. Despite this, he however has a honorable sense of pride in doing things. During the day, he's a buffed up beefcake filled to the brim with arrogance that becomes even more powerful as the day becomes noon. Regardless of all the pride he might spew however, he is somewhat of a humble character at least in regards to women. He Wouldn't Hit a Girl directly by his own choice and in regards to his love for Merlin, he sees her as a light that he'd humbly and fully devote himself to regardless whether or not his feelings are reciprocated. In a sense, Escanor adheres to a form of humble knightly chivalry found common in classical Arthurian and medieval lore which upholds women and their honor without guarantee reward for oneself. Furthermore considering certain aspects of his character, he is both at the same time the worst of the Sins in regards to how ridiculously strong he can get when compared to the rest, and not the worst in regards to his personality especially at the night that's clearly more morally grounded than those of the rest.
    • Additionally there is the case of Pelliot and his friends who pretend to be the eponymous Sins in their little games. Unlike the actual characters they are pretending as though, Pelliot and his friends childishly display and exaggerate one dimensional traits that are stereotypically associated with sins when they play. This includes for example, Pelliot acting like a loudmouth hothead since he's pretending to be the Dragon's Sin of Wrath, and one of his friends acting like a extortionist since he'd pretending to be the Fox's Sin of Greed. The only one who doesn't act like this is ironically Armando, who in reality is a persona of Gowther.
  • "Shaggy Dog" Story: The Prisoners in the Sky movie has the Sins, for their original quest, hunting a variety of exotic beasts in order to prepare a special feast for King Baltras' birthday. Their adventure in the sky incidentally gets them the last ingredient for their feast. And then their quest ends in failure because they made the mistake of allowing Meliodas to cook it, causing the meal to be inedible.
  • The Shadow Knows: Meliodas casts a rather demonic shadow in Chapter 28 as a hint of his true nature.
  • Ship Tease: There are multiple instances which ship tease certain couples.
    • There is Meliodas and Elizabeth despite the former's very perverted nature towards the latter. This seems so far to stem from Elizabeth looking like Meliodas' former lover Liz.
    • There is Ban and Elaine, the latter of which often if not always appears alongside him in various covers and other media as a Cute Ghost Girl.
    • There is King and Diane. One of the most blatant of this was the chapter 45 ballroom dancing colorspread which not only shipteases them but the above two couples as well.
    • After seeing how kind she is, there have been some slight moments that show Howzer has developed some feelings for Diane. Said feelings however have made him conflicted between duty and what's right during the kingdom infiltration arc.
    • After she is saved from being turned into a demon, Jericho develops some feelings for Ban. The pairing is slightly teased more as it's revealed in a story about Hendrickson that they had met before. A very young Jericho not only met Ban but also in a rather childish and non-serious manner, randomly asked him to marry her.
    • Merlin and Meliodas share a moment in the tavern at Chapter 197.5, where she claimed that he gave Elizabeth plenty of "Something you couldn't give me." Whether she is talking about love is left ambiguous.
    • The Vampires of Edinburgh special teases the pairing of Escanor and Merlin with the former's obvious crush on her, and the latter deciding to hear his poem after the whole incident ends.
  • Shock and Awe: Gilthunder's main power. He comes by it honestly.
  • Shout-Out:
    • In Chapter 68 when Slader puts on his mask, he shouts out "Make-up" similar to Sailor Moon's"Makeup" catchphrase.
    • Both versions of King look more like Naoki Urasawa characters than the others, especially in his introduction chapters (the two kids at the village also look like Urasawa's style).
  • Shown Their Work: The first Fanbook shows with a map that the setting takes place in Britain. Of particular note is the location of Edinburgh. It is in the same place that the real life Edinburgh is actually located.
  • Shrink Ray: Well more like spores than rays, there's a mushroom creature that will shrink you if it feels scared. Later on Merlin comes up with a pill that has the same effect.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang:
    • Meliodas is a peace loving generally laid-back and aloof blond haired demon who looks like a child and is left handed. This contrasts with his more evil brothers. His brother Zeldoris looks uncannily like him but has a different hairstyle and color, is a serious and no-nonsense type of guy, and is right handed. His brother Estarossa looks like an adult version of him with a different hair color.
    • Elizabeth's sisters Veronica and Margaret are this. The former's a Rebellious Princess while the latter's a Princess Classic. They are also a Tomboy and Girly Girl respectively. Elizabeth is in the middle compared to them, a classic princess who wants to fight.
  • Silent Scapegoat: Ban, regarding Elaine's death and the destruction of the forest. His motives for not letting on haven't been revealed so far.
  • Skinny Dipping: Ban requested Elaine skinny dip with him in the past.
    • In the extra of Volume 6, Meliodas teaches King to be more bold, which involved Meliodas going to a pond where Elizabeth and Diane were bathing. Of course, the two were okay with Meliodas being there. King tried to join in, but Diane angrily kicked him out.
  • Slasher Smile: Gowther sports a creepy grin in the finale of the anime, complete with Scary Shiny Glasses.
  • Spare Body Parts: Demons in the series have two hearts instead of one. This means that ripping out one heart out of one doesn't kill it.
  • Spell My Name with an "S":
    • In the early fan scanlations, Hawk's name was spelled Hork, but later it was changed when how his name is spelled in English was revealed.
    • Liones was originally spelled by fan scanlations as Lyonesse due to the various references to Arthurian Legend.
    • Guila's name prior to its official spelling was spelled as Geera.
    • Sennette's name prior to its official spelling was spelled as Cenette.
    • Oslow's name prior to its official spelling was spelled as Oslo.
    • Pelliot's name prior to its official spelling was spelled as Pelio.
    • The name of the masked leader of Dawn Roar has been translated as either Threader or Slater in fan scanlations. The official spelling though is Slader.
    • Howzer's name prior to its official spelling was spelled as Hauser.
    • Griamore's name prior to its official spelling was spelled as Griamor.
    • Hendrickson's name prior to its official spelling was spelled as Hendricksen.
    • Vivian has had two official spellings of her name. In the first Fanbook, her name is spelled as Viviann with two n's. Volume 15 of the manga proper though spells her name simply as Vivian with one n.
    • King Baltra's name prior to its official spelling was spelled as Bartra.
    • The town where fighting festivals are held, Vaizel, was originally spelled by fan scanlations as Byzel prior to its official spelling.
  • Staring Contest: The occurrence of the trope is heavily prevalent in the series the point it's practically Author Appeal. Nearly every major conflict includes the one or many of the protagonists getting up close and personal to have an intimidating stare down with one of the antagonists.
  • Start X to Stop X: The Great Holy Knight Hendrickson's plan concerning the prophesied Holy War is by reviving the Demon Clan and having the Holy Knights fight these foes. Basically, he wants to start the Holy War as foretold so that he can fight to stop the Holy War. It makes sense for him as he is a massive Colonel Kilgore who believes that war is the sole reason for the existence of his order.
  • Stealth Pun: Every night before they go to bed, Meliodas is tied up so he can't molest Elizabeth while they're sleeping in the same bed. By Hawk. In other words, Meliodas is getting hog-tied.
  • A Storm Is Coming: Days prior to the Demon who burnt down the Fairy King's Forest appearing, Elaine noticed some ominous clouds in the distance.
  • Squishy Wizard: King has incredible magic skills especially when aided with his Holy Weapon. Physically however, he's ridiculously weak to a degree that he apparently lost a fight with a mere cat who stole his snacks. In fact, according to a Q&A from the first Fanbook, he's actually weaker than Hawk.
  • Strip Poker: The cover of Chapter 43 has Meliodas, Ban, and King playing a game of poker with King having lost his clothes.
  • Sue Donym: Ban enters his and Meliodas' names in the Vaizel Fight Festival to regain Diane's weapon as Baan and Meliodaz respectively. While the aliases didn't really hide who they were, they were enough of a Paper-Thin Disguise to fool one of their dumber opponents, Howzer.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Meliodas seems to have one as indicated via a shadow on a wall and during his match against Ban in the tournament which he briefly called upon to squeeze out a last minute win.
  • Supreme Chef: Contrary to appearances, Ban is an excellent chef: his food is as good as Meliodas' isn't. In chapter 101, Hawk refers to him as "god" for his efforts... which are made from ingredients past their expiration date.
  • Surprisingly Realistic Outcome: Dreyfus and Hendrickson staged a coup against the king, manipulating the Holy Knights and Princess Veronica into doing their bidding while murdering Zaratras, putting Hendrick's own nephew and his betrothed Princess Margaret under a Geas. Later seasons reveal they were brainwashed and possessed by a Ten Commandment named Fraudrin, who was using them to free the demons. Even though a resurrected Zaratras gives his life to free his little brother and Dreyfus and they vow to atone for what they did under the demon's control, Cartesian Karma is in effect. Bartra gives them The Pardon under Moral Pragmatist but refuses to make either of them Grandmaster for essentially committing treason; he instead gives Howser the title since Howser was the only Holy Knight with Incorruptible Pure Pureness. Not to mention that the Pleiades hate Hendrickson's guts for causing their leaders' death, and the other Holy Knights obey their orders with reluctance. Margaret herself doesn't trust them when they have to escort her on a rescue mission for Gilthunder; she ignores Hendrickson and Dreyfus's warnings to not let Ludociel posses her because at least the goddess hasn't betrayed or kidnapped her.
  • Taken for Granite: King's spear has this as one of its powers.
  • Talking Animal: Hawk, the series mascot, is a talking pig.
  • Team Title: The series is named after the Seven Deadly Sins, a Badass Crew formed by seven criminals who were recruited as Liones Kingdom's most powerful knights.
  • Telekinesis: Fairies such as King and Elaine are capable of levitating things via their powers.
  • There Is Only One Bed: Meliodas and Elizabeth share the same room and sleep in the same bed, so he can "protect" her. In response though, Hawk ties him up every night as a precaution against what is clearly anything but Innocent Cohabitation.
    • Jericho tries to invoke this, but Ban prefers the floor.
  • Time Dissonance: Once, a kind hunter gave King and his companion soup after the companion helped him with his work. A few pages later in the story, the same hunter comes across them when King's friend is sick and gives her medicine, after which King finally thanks him for giving him that soup 'recently.' The hunter stops, baffled, before realizing he meant the soup he gave them years ago. The next time we see the hunter, it's actually his grandson. The entire chapter takes place over the course of hundreds of years, but seems to be rather short from King and his companion's perspectives.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: King, a fairy, and his lady love Diane, a giant, can't be more different in size.
    • And then there's Meliodas and Elizabeth, since Meliodas has the appearance of a child while Elizabeth does not.
    • Zarpa and Matrona provide another example. While Zarpa seems to be on the tall side for a human, Matrona is a giantess.
  • Tournament Arc:
    • The Sins participate in a Vaizel Fighting Festival to regain Diane's holy weapon.
    • Later on, another Vaizel Fighting Festival is announced throughout the land inviting all with the promise that the winner of the tournament gets to have any wish granted. This one however is being held by the demons for nefarious purposes.
  • Trading Bars for Stripes: To atone for their original crimes, the Sins were offered the choice to become knights that answer directly to the king of Liones.
  • Tragic Keepsake: Meliodas uses a seemingly worthless broken sword as his primary weapon and never goes anywhere without it. It was never revealed how he got the item but is one of the keys to unseal the Demon Clan. Meliodas says carrying around this sword is the only thing he can do to atone his sins, so you better not touch it.
  • Twin Switch: A large part of the movie is about Meliodas accidentally trading places with a complete stranger who happens to resemble him. It goes on far longer than is plausible, given that the resemblance isn't all that great once you see them standing still in good light (The two may have the same height and build, and similar facial structures, but they have different hairstyles, slightly different hair colors, totally different eye colors, and Salaab has wings), plus the fact that Meliodas never even attempted to pass himself as Salaab in front of his associates, and in fact is continuously trying to ask who they're talking about as they chew him out for Salaab's actions, but keeps getting ignored.

    U-Z 

  • Vagueness Is Coming: A Holy War was prophesied to engulf all of Britannia heralded by the appearance of a unique pattern of shooting stars in the night skies. However who the Holy War would be against is not stated. The King of Liones tried to prevent the war by asking his knights to lay down their swords. The Holy Knights instead decided to prevent the war by overthrowing the king and forcing the various civilians to make preparations for it.
  • Villainous Parental Instinct: Played with. Fraudrin, an ancient Demon and member of the Demon King's elite group, possesses Holy Knight Grandmaster Dreyfus. To keep up his act, Fraudrin raises Dreyfus' son Griamore. However, Fraudrin eventually develops a legitimate care for the boy, seeing him as truly his own son. When he finally leaves Dreyfus' body to try and destroy Brittania, he sees Griamore and, knowing that Griamore would be a victim if he goes through with his plans, decides instead to allow himself to be killed rather than hurt his "son".
  • Villains Out Shopping: There is a short story staring Guila in which it shows her spending time with her little brother in her free time.
  • We Are as Mayflies: To Fairies and Giants, Humans have very short lifespans.
