Arue (あるえ) is Megumin and Yunyun's classmate and an author.


Like all Crimson Demons, Arue has dark brown hair and red pupils. Her hair is shoulder-length & end as drills. She also wears an eyepatch identical to Megumin's. She is also consistently described as voluptuous.


Arue usually appears quiet and composed, but she can actually be very mischievous and acting over-dramatic at times. She also has the making of a great actor, able to tell the most nonsensical statements with complete straight face, to make her stories and Crimson Magic culture semi-believable or seemingly reasonable. So you never know if she is telling the truth or telling one of her stories.


Arue is the third highest scoring student in her class, behind just Megumin, who is first, and Yunyun who is placed second. In terms of magic power, she is only slightly behind Megumin and Yunyun. However, for quizzes on Crimson Magic culture that required chuuni answers, she always exceeds the teachers' expectations and often get score marks of 100.

She was also the one who informed Mitsurugi that Wolbach has already escaped just before he arrived in the Crimson Demon Village.
