List of The Law of Ueki characters

The following is a list of characters from the anime and manga series, "The Law of Ueki".

"Note: Japanese names are all in Western order (given name before family name)."

Main characters

Kosuke Ueki

*Gender: Male
*Age: 13
*Birth date: 4th July
*Blood type: A
*Ability: Change trash into trees
*Ability Level 2:Undo the opponent's power

Kosuke Ueki is the main character in the series. He is in Class 1-C at Hinokuni Junior High School. Ueki's ability is given to him by Kobayashi (a.k.a. Mr. K), who is also Ueki's homeroom teacher. His level 2 power is to undo the opponent's power. He can use more than one sacred treasure weapon at the same time. He is also seen wearing pinkish-red shoes during his first fight with Robert Haydn.

Ueki is an unusually calm individual, and doesn't care about what happens to him. He can be found snoozing in class, letting children use him as a target for shooting soccer balls (or in one case, a surfboard),and also calling the police without panicking when he faces a gang of rowdy teenagers. However, he cares for people around them, even going as far as saving Robert Haydn from falling debris in the Dogura Mansion.

According to a short profile of the main characters of The Law of Ueki (published in the end of manga vol. 16 by the author), Ueki's hobbies include cleaning up his town. In the first volume of the manga, Ueki is seen planting trees in the town park.

Ueki is a genuinely kind person who is always trying to help people. Ueki is actually a heavenly being sent to Earth by his father in order to take part in this tournament. Being a heavenly being allows him powers beyond his tree-making skills.

It seems he may have a crush on Ai (especially in the manga), but it is not admitted in the anime series.

Ai Mori

*Gender: Female
*Age: 13
*Birth date: 8th August
*Blood type: A
*Ability: Change her opponent into a glasses-lover ("any" glasses)

Ai Mori is one of Ueki's classmates at Hinokuni Junior High School. When in a casual mood, Ai is usually upbeat and friendly, although she is often shown with a very shallow side, initially believing that all power-users (with the exception of Ueki) are dangerous enemies that can't be trusted. Still, Ai cares deeply for her friends, especially Ueki. She discovers Ueki's power early on, coming to a rather unusual conclusion and at first believing him to be an alien. Upon learning of the competition Ueki is in, she decides to back him up, to keep him from losing all his talents and disappearing because of it.

She is strict with Ueki at times, especially when he looks like he is about to do something rash. Ai continuously tries to be his voice of reason, although her shallow antics and outspoken personality often annoys him. Later on in the series, she is given an ability by the King of the Celestial World Candidate, Wanko, during Ueki's fight with Sano. However, her power's condition is that her opponent must perform a goody-two-shoes pose (raising the right leg backwards while putting both of the fists close to the mouth region). Once this power is activated, her opponent falls totally in love with Ai's glasses and will do anything to keep them from harm, even defeat themselves. Also, they will not attack because they may accidentally break the glasses, and will do anything to prevent Ai from breaking them.

The food she cooks tends to look rather odd and off-putting (usually with squirming octopus tentacles), but it still tastes good. It seems she may have a crush on Ueki, but it is not admitted in the series.

Kobayashi

*Gender: Male
*Age: 32
*Birth date: December 25th
*Nickname: Mr. K (English),

Yodogawa replaces Kobayashi as Ueki’s King of the Celestial World candidate. Yo-chan had a deal with another more promising King of the Celestial World Candidate, Margarette, to get Ueki to lose as soon as possible in order to take a cushy job as his assistant advisor.

He does his best to persuade Ueki to quit the tournament, but never succeeds. He rejoins to help Ueki later and apologizes for his previous behavior when Ueki is forming his team. He is at least a level 6 Heavenly Being, since in one episode, he used Raika to transport the rest of Ueki's team to stop Tenko's deadly final training. For the rest of the series, he is seen either helping Team Ueki or ingratiating himself with Kobayashi and Inumaru.

Pag

A heavenly being who sent his son, Kosuke, to Earth as a baby with the same selfish intents as Margarette; to choose his son for the tournament so that he himself could benefit.

Unfortunately for him, he was not chosen as a King of the Celestial World Candidate, as Margarette was. He does, however, seem to express regret when he meets up with Ueki and company later in the anime, not revealing his true identity to Ueki due to his shame.

Pag also teaches Ueki a way to advance to his Level 2 power stating that it would be "the first and last time" he would aid Ueki. It is to be known in a later episode that he is Ueki's real father.

Lafferty

The King of the Celestial World Candidate who gave Taira his powers. She tried to cheat during a fight by giving Taira more water and was sent to Hell for it.

Ganju

The King of the Celestial World Candidate who gave Li Ho his powers. He is also Li Ho's coach, and Li Ho wears a hat that looks like his but with different colors.

Not even Ganju himself has seen Li Ho use his powers before.

Other power users

Maruo Taira

*Gender: Male
*Ability: Change water that he gargles in his mouth into fire

Usually likes to just blast fire, but he can manipulate it by gargling, sometimes making it into an explosive fireball. He wants the talent of manipulation if he wins. He was Ueki's first fight, and he lost after being hit by one tree.

Hayao Adachi

*Gender: Male
*Ability: Change cotton into stakes

Adachi wants to obtain the talent of running because he absolutely loves track but he is not a very good runner. He loses when he meets Ueki, who Adachi is envious of for his talent to run, but promises to keep running and maybe even beat him someday. He is the parody of Kazuma Azuma in the anime Yakitate!! Japan.

Li Ho

*Gender: Male
*Ability: Change his fighting will into power(never used).

Li Ho considers Ueki his rival and wants to become a strong fighter in honor of his father, who fell victim to the plague. Originally, he fights Ueki using a move he calls the nihongo|Secret of the Count of Monte Cristo|秘鍵巌窟王|hiken gankutsuou but succumbs to its weakness when Ueki grabs hold of his shoulders. He covers this weakness in Round 4 by rotating his arms and shoulders, but his technique fails once again when Anon grips onto his head to stop his movement.

During the third round, Li Ho displays a distinct growth in power, utilizing his inner power to perform powerful attacks. Channeling his power into his feet, for instance, allows him rapid movement.

Li Ho has developed a defense called Tai Chi Chuan which is a circular strike used to repel any attack. Ueki battles him before facing Marylin, and learns new ways to use his powers and skills in battle.

Junichi Baba

*Gender: Male
*Nickname: B・J
*Ability: Change coins into whirlwinds

B.J. loves hip-hop music. He has a tendency to lie a lot, particularly about who he is when fighting other power users.

When we first meet him he convinces another power user that he is Robert Haydn. His defeat at the real Robert Haydn's hands spurs Ueki to challenge him the first time.

He is somewhat a pervert especially towards Ai. During Ueki's first battle with him, he maximizes the speed of his whirlwinds to see her underwear and during their second meeting, he rubbed her body which resulted with a punch his face.

Bolo T

*Gender: Male
*Ability: Turn his forehead into diamond whenever he puts his hands in his pockets

He tends to just headbutt his opponents. Has many talents which he uses quite skillfully in battle. He often incorporates the word “jyan” at the end of his sentences. This is changed to "man" in the English anime.

Monjiro Oniyama

*Gender: Male
*Ability: Change soil into cannonballs
*Nickname: Onimon

He believes in fair and square fights. He has a tendency to shorten words and phrases, and he has 299 talents.

He loves his home village and wants the village building talent if he wins in order to build his own village back up.

He teaches Ueki some basic fighting techniques to help win the fight against the Black Shadow, (Kurokage) the first person Ueki meets of Robert's 10.

Manga only

Fukusuke Hibiki

Appeared exclusively in the manga. Ueki is pursued by a boy named Fukusuke Hibiki, who is convinced that Ueki is a "tree demon king" from a children's book.

When Myojin holds up his card the first time he uses his power in the manga, it is a card with the title "The Tree Demon King and The Hero".

Ueki's family

Gengoro Ueki

*Gender: Male

Ueki's adoptive father. He is a writer and likes anything weird or unusual. Rather than being shocked or scared at peculiar things, he shouts in excitement. He also enjoys sports very much. Extremely energetic. He often says, "Reality is Stranger than Fiction!"

hoko Ueki

*Gender: Female

Ueki's stunningly beautiful adoptive sister, she is a student in a nursing school. She is extremely protective of Ueki, and when she first hears that he has taken part in the battle game, she reacts by complaining about all the bruises and scraped knees he will get, and that she could not bare the thought of him getting hurt.

In the series, she likes to play video games, owning a myriad of games along with the PlayStation 2, a Dreamcast and a GameCube consoles. She is very enthusiastic about playing video games with Ai.

Haruko Ueki

*Gender: Female

Ueki's adoptive mother. She died in a car accident the same day in which Ueki arrived on Earth. She is the first person God meets while on a trip on Earth twenty years before when he is a newly elected god, when she was a high school student.

Oddly enough, her surname is Ueki and she mentions that she has a boyfriend who is a writer, which is also Gengoro's occupation. This could mean that either she's related to her husband, that they have the same surname by coincidence, that she lied and they were already married, or that Gengoro took on her surname after their marriage, which is not all that uncommon in Japan. Her daughter is her spitting image with the exception that Haruko wears her hair in a ponytail.
