10 Eris Is Mostly Comic Relief Despite Being A Goddess
She's a goddess and one of Aqua's peers, but she's mostly involved in scenes for comic relief (Aqua shares her chest-padding secret often). At least she has a better personality.
Eris also arrived in the mortal plane as "Chris," and she taught Kazuma the "steal" skill. Kazuma used this skill to start collecting girls' underwear right off their bodies.This scenario made fans compare this to anX-rated tale of Prometheus giving humanity fire.
9 Kazuma Sato Has Minimal Combat Skills Despite Being The Protagonist
Kazuma is the otherworldy protagonist of Konosuba, but he is a surprisingly weak warrior.He is also self-centered and conniving since he would rather exploit everyone and everything around him than be any kind of hero.
His combat skills are minimal, and he often flees from danger along with his party members. His Luck stat is maxed out, though, so he winds up getting his way by some means or other. However, he is too absorbed by worldly pleasures to become too good of a fighter anytime soon.
8 Darkness Is A Masochistic Defender
Her real name is Dustiness Ford Lalatina. However, she prefers to be called Darkness. As a Crusader, this girl has the right armor, swords, and knightly values for the job, but not much else. Her swordsmanship is bottom-tier compared to other characters featured in this list, and she cannot hit the side of a castle wall.

Darkness is better suited for defense or decoy work since she is extremely tough with or without the armor on. Her stamina is impressive as well, which is a boon for a long battle. Additionally, Darkness is quite masochistic, so it is easy to convince her to act as the shield of the group.
7 Beldia Is One Of The Demon King's Generals
Beldia is one of the generals of the Demon King's army. For the most part, Beldia (a dullahan) keeps to himself, holed up in that castle of his. However, Megumin's repeated explosions on that seemingly abandoned castle wore out his patience, and he arrived on the battlefieldto stop it himself.
He also has some curse powers and inflicted them on Darkness. However, this plan did not pan out the way he wanted and he got into a high-voltage duel with that crusader. He ultimately met his end when many magical spells blew him apart.
6 Aqua Was The Goddess Who Introduced Kazuma To The New World
Aqua has a special place in the story of Konosuba, being the goddess who introduced Kazuma to the new world and becoming his first adventure party member.However, she is often considered totally useless because ofher bratty behavior, short-sightedness, bad spending habits, and getting munched on by giant frogs.

Despite the strikes against her,her power is realand can be deadly when used correctly. She can create water out of nothing, purify it, create barriers and purify curses, and even perform amusing party tricks. Her presence alone can damage the undead or unholy creatures, and she's got a lot of magical power for Kazuma to borrow with the life-drain power that Wiz taught him.
5 Megumin Graduated Magic School Early For Good Reason
Meguminhails from the Crimson Demon clan, and she graduated from magic school early due to her exceptional performance. She is also altruistic since she also sends money back to her impoverished parents.
Her skill set is limited, despite her great magic. This is because she mainly sets off explosions. Despite how powerful these explosions are, she can only cast them once per day. Casting that spell is too exhausting for poor Megumin. Luckily for her, she already scored some major victories with that power alone.
4 Yunyun Has Many more Spells At her Disposal
Yunyunis another member of the Crimson Demon clan, and her magic power is not to be underestimated. Though she does not sling around explosions,Yunyun's magical repertoire includes many other spells as a great magic user.

Yunyun knows some destructive spells such as a lightning spell, and she can also use a sword of light to slice enemies apart.She also has teleportation magic, which allows her to reappear anywhere she's been before. This is convenient for fast travel.
3 Hans Can Dissolve Flesh Off His Opponents' Bones
Though Hans looks simple, he is one of the Demon King's generals. He was found lurking near a town that worships Aqua. When Kazuma's party confronted him, they witness his true transformative power.
Hans can morph into a huge, acidic slime monster, and he can easily dissolve the flesh right off people's bones. Hans acted as one of the major boss battles of the anime adaptation andproved to be one of the hardest opponents at that point to beat.
2 Vanir Has A Wide Range Of Scary Magic At His Disposal
Vanir is actually just the mask itself on a body, and he can place that mask-body on anyone and use their body as his own. He did this to Darkness once and granted her power far beyond anything she had herself.

Vanir can fire a powerful beam, and few very characters can survive that death ray. Not to mention how Vanir can make dirt golem bodies to distract and overwhelm his enemies, and his combat skills and durability are high. Fortunately, he stops being hostile to Kazuma's party and soon starts hanging out with Wiz at her shop.
1 Wiz Is The Best Heavy-Duty Magical Backup One Can Get
This lovely woman is, in fact, one of the Demon King's generals, like Beldia, Hans, and Vanir. Most of the time, however, she runsa nice little magic shop where adventurers are free to buy her wares. She gets along great with just about anyone she meets.
Wiz's powers are off the charts, however, and this came in handy multiple times. She can create a magic swamp to drag down hordes of enemies at once, and she can use a life-drain spell (and taught it to Kazuma). Her ice magic is impressive, and she can also sense nearby traps or enemies with ease. Kazuma's party only survived a few battles because Wiz provided heavy-duty backup.
