High School Students
- Kuoh (駒王) means "King Piece", in reference to the Evil Pieces.
- Kuoh Academy uses what is known as an "Escalator" system. This means that rather than being a school for one certain level of education, it instead houses all grades from 1st-University separated by Elementary, Junior High, Senior High, and College divisions. With the exception of transferees or the new male students the year before the series started, this means that there is no need for the traditional Entrance Exams so long as students maintain a respectful grade average.
- Aika Kiryuu, Motohama and Hase are the only known students who are not or never were part of one club.
- The school is controlled by Sona's peerage during the day and by Rias' peerage at night.
