The adventurers are the combat orientated class of human role-players in Elder Tale. Before the events of the Apocalypse they would normally explore the land, while completing quests, battling monsters and leveling up. However, after finding themselves trapped inside the Elder Tale game and donning their in-game avatars, the players find themselves in a lawless world which takes little to survive. Any adventurer that is killed, respawns at the cathedral of their nearest explored city. However each revival takes away a portion of their memories in the form of experience points.
Guilds of Akiba
Akiba is the largest player city in the Japanese server. Its position is akin to the real world's Tokyo. The guild masters of the eleven major guilds of Akiba form the Round Table Conference, which governs the city's affairs.

- Shiroe (シロエ Shiroe?) is best known as "Shiroe the Strategist" or "Villain in Glasses". His real name is Kei Shirogane (城鐘 恵 Shirogane Kei?). He is the founder and guild master of Log Horizon. His main class is Enchanter, which bestows him powerful support spells and allows him to aid his allies to victory instead of fighting in the frontlines. His secondary class is Scribe, which allows him to accurately draw maps of the places he visited and later allows him to develop new spells never seen before. A socially awkward engineering graduate student who has been playing Elder Tale for almost eight years, Shiroe was the strategist of the long-disbanded Debauchery Tea Party group, an informal (non-guild) elite group of players who completed high level group quests known as Raids. Shiroe had strong reservations about joining guilds until, in the aftermath of the Apocalypse and the ensuing worldwide despair, he decided to create a place for him and his friends, leading to the establishment of Log Horizon. Shiroe manages to assemble and create Akihabara's Round Table council after performing a highly complex, long-range plan to seize control of the Guild Building in Akiba, giving him control over the players and guilds' assets.

- Naotsugu (直継 Naotsugu?) is Shiroe's best friend and was also a member of the now disbanded Debauchery Tea Party group. His real name is Naotsugu Hasegawa (葉瀬川 直継 Hasegawa Naotsugu?). His main class is "Guardian", allowing him to use heavy armor and weapons along powerful defense spells to protect him and his companions. He calls himself an "open pervert", claiming that unlike some men he doesn't hide his perverted nature from others and is very proud of that fact. He has a tendency to get on Akatsuki's bad side with his perverted comments and a running gag is their confrontations usually ending with him getting a knee to the face, before she asks Shiroe for permission to do it.

- Akatsuki (アカツキ Akatsuki?) is a beautiful Assassin within the world of Elder Tale. Her secondary class is "Tracker", which enhances her assassin skills even further with stealth and detecting abilities. She was initially acquainted with Shiroe after having partied with him to complete quests prior to the Apocalypse, albeit using a male avatar. With Shiroe's help she switches to a more accurate female avatar; despite having the appearance of a pre-teen, she is a college student like Shiroe. After Shiroe helps her, she starts referring to him as her "Lord" and joins his party, claiming that it is out of gratitude but it is later shown that she is infatuated with him. She has a violent relationship with Naotsugu because of his "open pervertedness" and usually resorts to pre-emptive violence to stop his perverted comments before they can be spoken.

- Nyanta (にゃん太 Nyanta?) is a werecat Swashbuckler. He was the former Chief of the Debauchery Tea Party and an old friend of Shiroe's. His subclass is chef, which allows him to make delicious foods using ingredients, which is quite a reprieve from the tasteless pre-made food that is offered in Elder Tale, and ends up being an important plot point. Before the Apocalypse he was part of a guild called "The Cat Food Guild", which was composed solely of cat people. It has since been disbanded since their house caved in due to bad weather.

- Tohya (トウヤ Tōya?) is Minori's twin brother. His class is "Samurai", capable of using heavy armor and weaponry and casting special spells to increase his performance that must be used with caution due to their long cooldown time. When Tohya and his sister first met Shiroe, Tohya immediately started pestering him with questions on how to gain skills. He views Shiroe as a role model due to not only his strength and knowledge, but also his cool and kind personality. While Minori is shy and gentle, Tohya is very brash but it is clear he cares for his sister greatly and genuinely. Wheelchair-bound after an accident in the old world, he greatly enjoys being able to use his legs again in the world of Log Horizon. When Tohya his sister were trapped in the unethical guild Hamelin, he often wondered what Shiroe would do in that situation and tries to emulate Shiroe when faced with challenges. Once rescued by Shiroe and his friends, Tohya joins Log Horizon with his sister.

- Minori (ミノリ Minori?) is a young girl trapped in the world of Elder Tale with her brother Tohya. Her class is "Kannagi", a healer dressed as a Japanese shrine maiden whose spells are focused on preventing damage and debuffs to her and her allies instead of just treating them. Minori and her brother met Shiroe on their first day playing Elder Tale and asked him questions about gaining skills and healing spells. Although Shiroe disliked when people ask him for things, after meeting them he decided to teach them about the game and even lowered his avatar's stats so he could travel with them safely. Minori and her brother were with Shiroe when the Apocalypse began and were separated from Shiroe afterwards. Lost and without anyone to guide them, she and her brother decided to join the guild Hamelin to try to gain experience and levels, but the Hamelin guild masters exploited them (and other low level players) instead. After being rescued, Minori and her brother join Log Horizon and she starts studying Elder Tale's game mechanics under Shiroe, in order to become a strategist like him, but later realizes that just like Akatsuki, she is in love with him. Her original secondary class is "Tailor" but she later switches it to "Apprentice", allowing her to become Shiroe's official disciple and learn some of his skills as well.

- Isuzu (五十鈴 Isuzu?) is a high school girl who started to play Elder Tale around when the Apocalypse happened. She is a bard, using her songs to increase her and her allies' stats and cast debuffs at groups of enemies. She first appears during the summer camp and becomes a close friend of Rundelhaus Code and is the first to learn that he is one of the People of the Land, later joining Log Horizon with him.
- Voiced by: Tetsuya Kakihara
- Rundelhaus Code (ルンデルハウス＝コード Runderuhausu Kōdo?) is one of the People of the Land who tried to become an Adventurer, despite not having the ability to be resurrected upon death like the players from the real world. He is a Sorcerer specialized in offensive magic. After being mortally wounded, he signs a contract with Shiroe who uses a new type of magic invented by him to save his life and earn the secondary class "Adventurer", and joins Log Horizon with Isuzu.
- Tetra (てとら Tetora?) is a level 90 Cleric. A former resident of Minami and member of Light Indigo, she was sent by Kazuhiko to aid Shiroe at Susukino. Upon the completion of the mission, she asks Shiroe if she could join Log Horizon of her own free will, and was accepted. She is actually a boy but became trapped within his female avatar, but so far only Shiroe is the only one figured it out. For kicks, Tetra often teases and flirts with Naotsugu.
Crescent Moon Alliance
- Marielle (マリエール Mariēru?)
- Voiced by: Yumi Hara
- Marielle, the rather eccentric guild master of the Crescent Moon Alliance guild (which is also part of the Round Table council) and a friend of Shiroe's, is a Cleric. Her real name is Marie Sakamoto (坂本 鞠絵 Sakamoto Marie?). She is stronger than she looks and has a habit of hugging people so hard she slams them into walls. She usually does this when meeting new people or greeting a friend, and her preferred victim is Naotsugu with whom she becomes infatuated. However, she can be very serious when required. This holds true especially when a member of her guild is in danger.
- Henrietta (ヘンリエッタ Henrietta?)
- Voiced by: Ayahi Takagaki
- Henrietta is a Bard and one of the leaders of the Crescent Moon Alliance. Although she seems stern and put together, she can be just as eccentric as Marielle when she sees something cute, as becomes evident when she meets Akatsuki. She dislikes it when Marielle calls her by her real name "Umeko". She is an accountant and MBA in real life and is a great asset to Shiroe's plans due to her ability to negotiate with others. It is not known whether her skills at cosplay in Log Horizon have casrried over from the old world. Working closely with Shiroe eventually leads to Henrietta developing a romantic interest in him.
- Serara (セララ Serara?)
- Voiced by: Misaki Kuno
- A young Druid of the Crescent Moon Alliance. She is level 19 when first introduced with a secondary class of Maid, which she often regrets choosing because it only helps her to perform housekeeping chores. She develops a crush on Nyanta after he saves her and keeps her hidden from her enemies. This leads Shiroe and Naotsugu to wonder if she has a fetish for older (middle-aged?) men.
- Shōryū (小竜 Shōryū?)
- Voiced by: Ryōta Ōsaka
- A Level 90 swashbuckler and member of the Crescent Moon Alliance. He is in love with Marielle and goes to great lengths to try to impress her. He also becomes something of an older brother figure to the low level players who were rescued from Hamelin.

- Voiced by: Hiro Shimono
- Guild master of the West Wind Brigade and one of the members of the Round Table Council. Former member of Debauchery Tea Party. When introduced after the Apocalypse, he was slightly wary of Shiroe as the latter rejected his offer to join the West Wind Brigade, mistaking it as a sign that Shiroe did not like him (this was quickly cleared up). He is a Lv.90 Samurai and threw his full support behind Shiroe before the conference as he was used to 'fighting from the front'. He is also quite popular with women.

- Kazuhiko (カズ彦 Kazuhiko?)
- A level 90 Assassin, Kazuhiko is another former Debauchery Tea Party member who traveled to Minami out of a sense of justice. He controls the Wolves of Mibu, a subdivision of Plant Hwyaden that act more as his personal army rather than follow the orders of Nureha and Inctis. He sends Tetra to Shiroe in hopes of turning Shiroe's attention to Minami.
- K.R. (ＫＲ（ケイアール） Keiāru?)
- Another former Debauchery Tea Party member, K.R. is a level 90 Summoner. At the start of the Apocalypse, K.R. immediately used a summon to travel the world to see how the other areas were like. He stumbled upon Kanami and her party, and joined them as their mount, much to his distaste.

He then joined Plant Hwyaden.

People of the Land
The People of the Land are usually referred to as the non-playable characters of the world of Elder Tale. Prior to the Apocalypse they had limited responses and mannerisms to interaction by adventurers and would normally assign quests to them and present rewards should they be completed. After the Apocalypse they somehow became sentient, able to possess emotions, language and much complexity in thought. They are usually weaker in terms of combat orientation as opposed to Adventurers and unlike Adventurers, they do not respawn after being killed, resulting in a permanent death.
