Ragnarok the Animation is an [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] series based on the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], produced in the first quarter of 2004 and was broadcast on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. In 2005, it was broadcast on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. It has 26 episodes. The [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] distributor of the game, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], cooperated with [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for local licensing and distribution rights of Ragnarok the Animation. On January 22, 2007, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] announced the U.S. license of Ragnarok on the website's [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].


The story happens in the same world of Rune-Midgard. An evil entity
called the Dark Lord wants to create chaos in the world with the help
of seven crystals that represent the seven ambitions (also known as the
Seven Strengths) who sealed him away years ago.

Roan




The main protagonist, Roan (ロアン[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], voiced by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])
is a swordsman whose main goal in the anime is to gain power to protect
his childhood friend, Yufa. At one point, he believes he has failed in
this and goes off alone to get stronger. After a fateful encounter in
Byalan, Roan returns to the group as a Crusader, successfully rescuing
Yufa. However, as the story progresses, Roan begins to lose sight of
his duty. He later realizes his wrong after some advice from the
Legendary Witch in Payon and Comodo. However, it was too late as Roan
made it only on time to see Yufa leave with her brother. Afterwards,
the group heads towards Glast Heim to save Yuufa and to stop Dark Lord.
On the way, they are confronted by a possessed Yufa who sends a torrent
of undead monsters at her friends. After their victory, she teleports
them directly to Glast Heim. With the help and sacrifice of the rest of
the party, Roan manages to locate Yufa. However, he finds her to be
unable to truly hear his words. Tricking Roan, Yufa kisses him with her
tongue thus sliping a cursed ruby into his mouth, which he then
swallows. Upon realizing this, the cursed ruby begins to kill Roan.
Unable to draw his sword, Roan allows Yufa to stab him with a cursed
blade. Eventually, Yufa breaks free from her mental bonds and frees
Roan from the curse she had set on him with a kiss of true love. Then,
he, Yufa and the rest of the surviving group reunite to defeat Dark
Lord. In the end, Roan and Yufa were each seen wearing a ring, implying
that they are now married.

Yufa




The love interest of Roan, Yufa (ユーファ, Yūfa[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], voiced by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])
is an acolyte and Roan's childhood friend. Though she puts on a smile
for Roan, it's obvious she's still mourning the loss of her older
brother, Keough. When Keough suddenly returns to life as an evil being,
she becomes confused and doesn't know whether or not to fight her
brother or protect him. Later, in an effort to save the souls under the
control of the Moonlight Flower in Payon, she becomes a Priestess.
Eventually, Roan's ignorance and arrogance pushes Yufa away and prompts
her to leave the group (and Roan) behind for her brother, Keough.
Keough eventually corrupts Yufa by removing her soul crystal, something
that seems to give her the ability to stay pure, and is also
consequently one of the key items of Dark Lord's revival. After
stabbing Roan in her corrupt state, Keough comes to her in a vision and
tells her that he must leave her... but that Roan would protect her in
his absence. This vision broke Dark Lord's corruption, and freed Yufa
to allow her to see what she had done. Holding the dying Roan in her
arms, Yufa kissed her childhood love at last. This kiss of true love
destroyed the cursed ruby ailing Roan, allowing the two to stand
together against Dark Lord. With the help of her friends and Roan, Yufa
sealed Dark Lord away with a Magnus Exorcismus spell. At the end of the
series, it is implied that Roan and Yufa married.

Takius




The third character to be introduced to the series, Takius (タキウス, Takiusu[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], voiced by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])
is a mage who wears a blindfold ("Takius Blindfold") and searches the
world for the ultimate truth. Her mission for this "ultimate truth" was
put on her by her teacher, Zephyr (who also gave her the blinker). With
the blinker and her original staff intact, Zephyr had the ability to
control her. After going mad and being recruited by Dark Lord, he uses
this ability to manipulate Takius in favor of Dark Lord's plans.
Eventually, Takius is able to conquer her internal struggles, breaking
free from her ties with him and removing the blinker permanently. To
further this transformation she became a Sage, resulting in one final
confrontation with the one man she ever loved. During the final battle
with Zephyr, her master was betrayed by the Dark Lord, who had been
using Zephyr from the beginning. As a result, he falls from a
collapsing wall, only to be saved just in time by Takius. However, the
two are killed from a spell Zephyr had casted previously. However, this
wouldn't be Takius's last appearance in the anime. The voice of Takius
would come to Roan during the final battle, encouraging Roan to fight
on for he had lost all hope (some believe that Takius has survived the
Lord of Vermillion spell Zephyr summoned). Takius's staff would then
come crashing down from the air, cancelling the Meteor Storm spell Dark
Lord was using (somehow, the wand seems to contain a Sage class magic
called Spellbreaker, which is the reason of the spell cancelling
effect). Maya carries out her wand as a memory of her. Her real name is
Catherine (キャスリン, Kyasurin[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]),
but hates being called that for unknown reasons. Speculations may
involve being considered to be related to High Wizard Katherine Keyron,
a monster within the final level of the Lighthalzen Biolabs although is
considered not canon since Lighthalzen didn't appear during that time -
not to mention they have different hairstyle and class.

Maya




Maya (マーヤ, Māya[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], voiced by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])
is the next person after Takius to be introduced in the anime. She's
the merchant in the group and usually joins parties to steal loot and
make off with their money. Her rather disagreeable way of doing things
comes from a tragic event in her childhood where she was beaten in her
"hometown" of Alberta after trying to sell apples with her self-made
cart. She met Roan and Yuufa in the Prontera Sewers when they saved her
from a large number of Thief Bugs. In return, she saves them by
delivering a Blue Potion to Yuufa during their fight with a Golden
Thief Bug. She later changes her rather roguish ways after becoming
attached to Yuufa and the rest of the group. She has a known affinity
for monsters, never being seen without her pet Poring named Poy-Poy. In
Episode 7, she befriends an "Alice" (monster who resembles a human
maid) but sadly meets a tragic end because of the actions of Zealotus
(a half monster who despises humans) in Episode 19. However, she makes
peace with Zealotus, but too little too late in Comodo. Maya only ever
uses two skills in the series, Mammonite and Cart Revolution. Maya is
the only member of the group to not "advance" to another job. She does,
however, throw potions much like an Alchemist.

Iruga




Like Yuufa is childhood friends with Roan, Yirga Alam (イルガアラム, Iruga Aramu[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], voiced by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])
is childhood friends with Keough and is an assassin. After witnessing
his friend "die" in Glast Heim, Yirga decided to protect both Yuufa and
Roan in Keough's memory. Later on in his travels, he meets an amateur
female hunter by the name of Judia. After saving her from a couple of
bandits, they become companions (or rather she just follows him). When
Yirga finds out Keough is alive and now working for evil, he fights his
former friend in an effort to bring the real Keough back. During one
confrontation, he becomes gravely injured, and is forced to battle
Keough in a weakened state numerous times. In the final battle in Glast
Heim, Yirga and Keough fatally struck each other at the same time.
However, Yirga managed to stab Keough's wound, freeing his friend's
heart from the evil the Dark Lord placed in it. Unfortunately, this
killed Keough in the process and the two died.

Judia




A hunter who has developed a relationship with Iruga. At first, Judia (ジュディア[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], voiced by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])
is a terrible hunter, but after a chance encounter with Iruga, she
improves a great deal. She has incredible skills with her bow by the
time of the anime. She is also apparently able to read tarot cards like
a Minstrel or Gypsy. She falls in love with Iruga and comes to
understand what he's trying to do in fighting Keough as he is. When she
teams up with Roan's group, she gets jealous after Yuufa holds his hand
and keeps calling him "Brother Iruga". By the end of the anime, she has
Iruga's child which was the product of giving her life force to Iruga
when he was injured with a sword which is enchanted with poison(can be
seen in the end of episode 17 and the beggining of episode 18). In the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] version she speaks with a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] accent; in the Philippine version she speaks in the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] accent.

Antagonists



Dark Lord




The main antagonist of the series, Dark Lord (ダークロード, Dāku Rōdo[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])
is the greatest representation of evil within Rune-Midgard. He shows a
noticeable superiority to all other monsters in the anime, and proves
to be the world's greatest threat, despite being sealed away long ago
by the "Seven Ambitions." He is so cunning and devious, he manages to
convince three of the seven souls he needs to be revived to work for
him. From several scenes, it seems that the Dark Lord consists of two
identities, both being equally evil. There is no apparent difference
between the two identities, seemingly only shown to explain the
different voices of this villain. Dark Lord is an actual MVP (boss) in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

Keough




Yufa's elder brother, a knight, and currently a subordinate of the Dark Lord. Keough (キーオ, Kīo[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], voiced by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])
is childhood friends with Iruga and accompanied him to investigate
Glast Heim. The ruins proved to be too much for the group and forced
them to flee. However, their escape route was blocked by an Abysmal
Knight. Despite Iruga's protests, Keough distracted the knight as Iruga
got Roan and Yufa out. However, before Iruga could make it back Keough
was stabbed and the doors of Glast Heim closed. In the beginning it is
assumed he died, but the group later learns that he was brainwashed and
corrupted by the Dark Lord. Keough's stab wound was made by a "Blade
Lost in Darkness," which would become symbolic to what he had become.
His main purpose would be to lure Yufa to join the dark side, for she
was holding a soul crystal vital for Dark Lord's revival. Merely
seconds from death, Keough reforms and apologizes to Iruga for
everything. His soul later appears in Yufa's dream sequence telling her
not to choose the path he had taken, and to follow Roan for he would
protect her. Iruga nicknames him Haze after he turns to the dark side.

Zephyr




Zephyr (ゼフェル, Zeferu[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], voiced by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) is a wizard, and Takius's teacher. He possesses similar characteristics to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
He has a high-pitched laugh and does some very goofy antics throughout
the anime, from laughing for no apparent reason, to fighting Roan with
a candy cane. However, all that cannot seem to hide his incredible
power, knowledge of magic, and his utter insanity. Zephyr once had a
family, but they had lost their lives due to a failed experiment of
his. Coupled with the ridicule of the public, Zephyr was driven insane
to the point where he could be easily manipulated by the Dark Lord. The
anime is vague on whether he went insane during teaching Takius or
after. He is eventually saved by his former pupil, but too late for
both of them. In the anime, Zephyr was the only character to have
attained an "aura" which signifies the ultimate power he has gained
through mercilessly killing hundreds of monsters and people (in Ragnarok Online it instead represents reaching level 99).

Jiltus




Jiltus (ジルタス, Jirutasu[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], voiced by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])
is the offspring of a monster father and a human mother. Because of the
prejudice of her monster half, Jiltus and her mother were forced to
leave their village. The cruelty of the villagers left a deep hatred of
humans in Jiltus' heart. After her mother's death, Jiltus lived among
the monsters and became a cruel being. A chance encounter with Baphomet
made her rethink her lifestyle until she is approached by Dark Lord to
serve him. She was first seen in Prontera Sewers, manipulating the
actions of the Golden Thief Bug. During the anime, she has a particular
dislike for Maya because of Maya's love for monsters and relationship
with Alice. They eventually resolve their differences. In the end, she
sacrifice her life to protect Maya as a sign of their friendship. Her
spirit would appear before Maya during the final battle and instruct
her on how to defeat the Dark Lord. Jiltus(Zealotus) is an actual
monster in the game.

Other



Baphomet




Baphomet (バフォメット, Bafometto[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], voiced by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]),
a towering, horned goat-like being who is the first to best the entire
group of protagonists, possessing immense power, but obviously not
fighting to the fullest in his fights (and often toying with his
opponents). Though considered evil at first, he shows mercy by sparing
the group and then respect when Judia rescues his son. It seems the
Baphomet was one the greatest beings preventing Dark Lord's
revitalization, though he never directly interferes until the end. It
is unknown whether or not Baphomet is stronger than the Dark Lord. At
one point in the series it is revealed that Baphomet is concerned for
the "balance of good and evil" which could explain why he opposes Dark
Lord while being the evil himself. His weapon is a large hammer in the
anime, while in the game he uses a purple scythe. Baphomet is an actual
MVP (boss) in the game.

Melopsum




Melopsum (メロプシュム, Meropushumu[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], voiced by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])
is a shapeshifting witch who was responsible for a tragedy at Comodo
many years ago (although it has been implied that is was just a
misinterpreted tale). She seems to be associated with Baphomet, but is
a largely mysterious character. She has a particular interest in Roan.
She first changed into a Crusader in Izlude Island and saves Roan and
convinces him to become a Crusader. Then she changes into an Archer in
Payon to teach him the true path that power isn't everything and
finally a Monk when Roan is trapped in a cave near Comodo, teaching him
not to use the sword arrogantly and that pure strength is not enough.
In her last appearance to Roan, she (and two dancers indirectly) teach
Roan to tell the enemies moves and gives him a sword that was used to
seal herself away, entrusting him to use it to protect those he loved.
