Megumin is an Arch Wizard of the Crimson Magic Clan in the Fantasy World, and is the first person to join Kazuma's party. She is one of the main characters of the KonoSuba series. Megumin is a young girl with shoulder-length dark brown hair (smooth black in light novel) and oddly languid crimson-colored eyes. She has fair skin, a light complexion and doll-like features. Unlike her classmates on Crimson Village, who has a more developed body, Megumin seems to have a delicate under-developed figure. Megumin wears a classical witch attire such as a black cloak, a red robe, orange boots and a black wizard's hat, all with gold border and trimmings, alongside black choker, belt and fingerless gloves. Megumin's right leg is wrapped in white bandages and a black stocking on the left one. She carries a brown staff with a floating red gem. Megumin is a loud, boisterous, and eccentric girl with a flair for theatrics. Being a member of the Crimson Magic Clan, she shares many of her people’s characteristics, such as displaying chuunibyou tendencies and having a fondness for strange names. Megumin often comes off as cocky and arrogant, constantly boasting about her destructive powers, but is quick to drop her act when put in a desperate situation, such as when Kazuma threatened to slap her with her eyepatch. Though she plays the part of the supremely powerful wizard, Megumin is actually quite childish and immature. She is sensitive about her age and underdeveloped body, becoming either despondent or aggressive when treated like a little girl. She maintains a somewhat petty rivalry with her old classmate Yunyun, and never misses an opportunity to bully and harass her, despite secretly seeing her as a friend. Megumin is utterly obsessed with explosion magic, investing all of her stat increases in her one explosion spell because she thinks all other magic was basically useless, despite the spell draining all her energy after one use and being generally impractical. She refuses to learn any other type of magic, routinely flying in the face of all logic to protect her explosion magic. Because of her obstinance, no other party will have her despite Crimson Magic Clan being known for their powerful wizards, and Kazuma only accepted her after she blackmailed him. She demonstrates zero self-control when it comes to her explosions, and will often completely disregard any consequences as long as she can cast one explosion spell a day. The most egregious example of this is when she continued to blow up one of the Demon King’s General’s castles, even after he came with his army and specifically threatened the entire village to stop. Despite her short-comings, Megumin is acknowledged by Kazuma as having the most common sense of the group. She was the only one besides Kazuma who recognized the bizarre and cultish nature of Aqua’s religious followers. As a Crimson Magic Clan member, she is fairly intelligent and is legitimately adept at magic (though she limits herself to only one spell). Megumin also does show genuine love and loyalty to her friends, and will fiercely protect them if necessary.
