Kageyama Tobio is the tall and brooding setter of Karasuno High. His athleticism and genius is well-recognized and praised by players and coaches but has the unfortunate nickname of "king of the court" due to his autocratic nature on the court. This soon changes as he enters Karasuno High and meets Hinata and his fellow teammates.
Hinata Shouyou is the main protagonist of the Haikyuu!! anime series. He fell in love with volleyball after seeing Karasuno High's star player nicknamed, "the small giant" play during the national tournament and being able to spike over tall blockers despite his small stature. Hinata, being of equally small stature, enrolls in Karasuno High and dreams of becoming the next "small giant".
Nishinoya Yuu is the temperamental and energetic libero of Karasuno High. Much like Hinata, he too is of small stature but has a muscular build and is known for his wild hairstyle as well as his wild and loud fashion sense. He is regarded by his teammates as "Karasuno's Guardian Deity" due to his unparalleled defense and the ability to save the ball in almost impossible situations.
Oikawa Touru is the captain of the Aobajohsai High volleyball team and is regarded as the team's star setter. His jump-serve is well-renowned not only for its power but also for its pinpoint accuracy. He is also incredibly perceptive with his surroundings, which contributes to his talent as a setter.
Sugawara Koushi is the vice-captain of the Karasuno High volleyball team. Sugawara is characterized as having and calm and gentle personality and is a great source of support for his teammates. Although not having any particularly special skills, he is a balanced player overall and has helped the team come up with various strategies and attacks against formidable teams.
Tsukishima Kei serves as the middle blocker and is the tallest member of the Karasuno High volleyball team. He has this quite but antagonistic personality that always manages to rile up his teammates and others. Together with his generally smug look and attitude, he tends to rub people the wrong way. As a player though, he is quite observant, which tends to benefit the team a lot as a result.
Tanaka Ryuunosuke is the loud and expressive wing spiker of the Karasuno High volleyball team with a penchant for picking fights at the drop of a hat. His most notable skills are his jump-serves and cross-spikes but most of all, he has a very strong mental fortitude that allows him to push past long games and maintain a high level of performance.
Sawamura Daichi is the captain and wing-spiker of the Karasuno High volleyball team. As is expected of his role in the team, he is a responsible and caring man that does his best to understand and accommodate his teammates. His strength lies in his solid defensive abilities and together with Nishinoya, make up the team's defense.
