Original appearance:

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

Haruhi Suzumiya (涼宮ハルヒ Suzumiya Haruhi) is both the female protagonist and founding member of the SOS Brigade with the purpose of finding aliens, time travelers, and espers of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya by Nagaru Tanigawa. Although she doesn't know it, all the members of the SOS Brigade she recruits, besides Kyon, happen to fit into these groups.

She is incredibly eccentric and anti-social with no interest in "ordinary" humans. She also, unknown to her, has the god-like abilities to change, destroy, and reshape reality.


Haruhi is a bright, energetic and athletic high-school student. Many male students consider her attractive though she turned them down. She alternates between melancholy and incredible optimism, being often unpredictable.

When Haruhi was in sixth grade, she went to see a baseball game with her parents and was shocked by the sheer amount of people attending. After finding out that the large amount was only a small piece of the entire world and realized that she was only a small part of it, Haruhi believed herself to be ordinary, and deduced that if there is someone out there with an interesting life that it should be her. This results in Haruhi's desire to find strange things.

In middle school, East Junior High, Haruhi became known for several things such as putting talismans up around school, dating and often immediately dumping every guy who asked her out, and, most notably, drawing a huge graffiti mural on the field on the night of Tanabata. It turned out that Kyon was actually the one who drew this under Haruhi's orders after he and Mikuru traveled back in time. Seen as a silouhoutte, Haruhi could not make out his face so Kyon used the alias "John Smith" to further keep himself secret. "John Smith" implied to Haruhi that there were strange things out there and that there might be interesting people at North High, inspiring her to attend the school.

When Haruhi attended North High, she met Kyon, the first person who openly talked to her. She took an interest in him because he reminded her of John Smith, and eventually dragged him into creating her new club, the SOS Brigade. By seizing a room used by Yuki Nagato to use as their club room and abducting Mikuru Asahina and Itsuki Koizumi to join her club, Haruhi unknowingly drags the exact types of people she wants into her life.

  • Haruhi was originally planned as a date character, but was replaced by Yuki Nagato due to the fact that Haruhi is hinted to have a crush on Kyon. Yuki would later be removed as a dateable character.
