"For all the happiness you wish for someone, someone else gets cursed with equal misery. That's how it works for Magical Girls, and that's how it is for me. I was so stupid, so stupid."

Sayaka Miki is one of the main characters from the Puella Magi Madoka Magica franchise and is Madoka Kaname's friend.


Sayaka is shown to act slightly tomboyish and heroic. She cares a lot for her friends, made clear by her immediately making the contract to become a magical girl just so she could save Madoka.

Despite acting tomboyish, she does have a girly side, shown by her interest in romance and classical music. However, her vision of love is very unrealistic.

Sayaka rarely thinks twice before acting on something, and conflicts with others easily. Even if she is kind and courageous, those two things make her ignorant and careless.

Throughout the anime, Sayaka and Kyoko were often arguing with one another, and their first encounter was even a fight to the death. If it wasn't for Homura, it's come to show that Sayaka would have died twice.

It's also evident that Sayaka has some love for anime and games, since she called Homura 'moe' and by the quote of "She's so moe, it makes me sick!". It's also hinted that she likes cosplaying as well.

Sayaka also hates the idea of being rejected by people that she loves. This is an example of how Kyousuke started dating Hitomi and she felt hurt and rejected. This is come to show that Sayaka wants praise for what she's done and even get the chance to date him, but to a dismay, that didn't happen.

In the Rebellion Movie, It's also come to show that Sayaka may have developed admiration for Kyoko, or developed romantic feelings for her.


Sayaka Miki is a young girl with short medium blue hair and blue eyes. She is also very pale. She is seen wearing her school uniform in the beginning of episode one which, like all others, her uniform is a cream colored long sleeved shirt with a big red bow on the front. The bottom of the sleeves are open and have red borders around them. The front of the shirt also has two pockets on them. She wears a pair of brown shoes with dark deep blue knee socks.

In her magical girl form, her clothing consists of a blue and white button down strapless top, a blue skirt, white stockings with a blue stripe, teal boots, a white, thigh-long cape, and 2 pairs of gloves: one being midnight-blue and elbow-length, while the other being white and the standard length. Her Soul Gem is imbedded in her belly button.


Sayaka was first seen in episode 1 with Madoka and Hitomi Shizuki while walking to school. She and Madoka were shown to have a good relationship with one another.

Later when Madoka goes to rescue Kyubey, she stops Homura Akemi by spraying her with a fire extinguisher. She runs with Madoka And Kyubey to get away from Homura, and she gets trapped in a barrier with Madoka. Mami then helps them get out. Mami Tomoe and Kyubey then explain the concept of magical girls to Madoka And Sayaka.

Sayaka ponders her wish and what she will do, as well as Madoka. She asks if the wish can be used for someone else, Madoka commenting on Kyousuke Kamijou.

Sayaka visits Kamijou and they listen to music together. Sayaka watches Mami fight the witch, Ulla. Mami warns Sayaka to think carefully about her wish and what her true intentions are. The next day, Sayaka and Madoka find a grief seed that is close to activating. Sayaka decides to stay at the site with Kyubey, and Madoka searches for Mami. Sayaka and Kyubey are now trapped in the barrier. Madoka comes back with Mami and they go into the barrier.

Sayaka meets up with Mami and Madoka and they go to kill the witch together. She witnesses Mami's death and Homura defeating the witch, resulting in her becoming angry at the latter for not saving Mami.

Sayaka continues visiting Kamijou. Kamijou states that he will never be able to use his left arm again. He gets mad at Sayaka. Sayaka appears to save Madoka from a barrier. Sayaka is revealed to be a magical girl, a fact that Homura opposes.
