|~ Malty begging for Naofumi's forgiveness (only to be refused).|
Malty S. Melromarc, later known by the derogatory title of "Bitch" is the main antagonist of The Rising of the Shield Hero franchise. She is the former first Princess of the Kingdom of Melromarc and the archenemy of Naofumi Iwatani.
An unrepentant sociopath, Malty pretended to join the Shield Hero in a gesture of "kindness". Later that night however, she stole all of Naofumi's money possessions and then framed him for a crime that he did not commit. Since then, Malty has traveled across the various worlds, sowing endless destruction in her wake, whilst relishing in the suffering of her numerous victims.
Malty is also present in the original (now non-canon) web novel, where she was eventually revealed to be a soul fragment of the evil goddess Medea Pideth Machina, the root of all evil in the series. In the canon story lines, the corresponding manga and anime adaptations however, Malty and Medea are implied to separate people. Despite these differences, Malty's role remains consistent. In each iteration, she is both the Shield Hero's treacherous first companion and his foremost enemy.
In the anime, she is voiced by Sarah Emi Bridcutt in Japanese (who would reprise the same role in the series' 2020 stage play adaptation) and Faye Mata (who also voiced Yumemi Yumemite in Kakegurui) in English.

Titles and Alias'
As the first born child o Queen Mirellia Q. Melromarc and King Aultcray Melromarc XXXII, Princess Malty S. Melromarc was originally known as the First Princess of Melromarc. Despite this, due to her vile personality she was not the crown princess/heir to the throne. That honor was bestowed upon her younger sister, Melty by order of her mother. Despite this, Malty always refers to herself as the next Queen of Melromarc. When operating as an adventurer within Naofumi and Motoyasu Kitamura's parties, Malty kept her true identity a secret to all but her closest "friends" and the Three Heroes. To everyone else, she was a simple adventurer called Myne Sophia or Myne for short. It is not known why Malty operated under this alias.
Following her expulsion from the royal family in Volume 4 however, Malty was stripped of both her royal status and titles. As a further punishment, Naofumi (with the full backing and permission from Queen) had Malty's legal name changed to "Bitch" and her adventurers name to "Whore". The former was a name that the Shield Hero had previously though up, once he realised that Malty had planned to sell him out from the very beginning. This act of revenge was meant to show Malty what it felt like to have everything taken from you, including your name and identity, but she did not learn her lesson. In Volume 11 after manipulating the Sword Hero, Malty became a wanted fugitive and was granted a final derogatory title, courtesy of her mother, "Witch". By this point, Mirellia no longer considered Malty her daughter and Witch's reputation had reached lowest point.
Malty is taller than Ren and Itsuki, but shorter than Naofumi and Motoyasu. She is also slightly taller than Raphtalia and has a much more lean figure. Malty's eyes are green eyes and she has chest length wavy hair, tied up in a ponytail at the back, but otherwise worn in several loose strands. Throughout the story, several people, including Naofumi have referred to her as beauty, though Naofumi now regards her as a waste of beauty.
As is befitting of a royal, Malty maintains a rather youthful and well kept appearance. Between Volumes 1 - 4, she dressed in the finest armor/clothes available. Her main attire was a set of silver armor with purple linings and dark under-armor. A red jewel surrounded by gold rested at the center of the breastplate. This armor was originally purchased for her by Naofumi, who she tricked into buying it shortly before betraying him. Following her fall from grace, Malty kept the armor, but had to wear simple peasants garments otherwise.
Beneath her superficial beauty and pretentious kindness, Malty Melromarc is a complete monster. She is a greedy, narcissistic, opportunistic, selfish, smug, cowardly woman, who is ungrateful, hypocritical, manipulative and treacherous. To her, deception, manipulation and insults come as easily as breathing.
According to both her mother and sister, Malty likes to hide in the shadows and enjoys bringing misery to others. She is always careful to make sure that she has the backing of powerful individuals, such as her father King Aultcray and the Spear Hero Motoyasu, whom she has wrapped around her finger. Whilst capable of feigning emotions, Malty does understand the concepts of love, friendship or loyalty. Given her fickle nature, she will inevitably betray her allies, especially if an even better opportunity presents itself.
Malty is determined to be the next Queen of Melromarc (despite her mother removing her from the line of succession) and wants to be remembered as a great hero, who saved the world from destruction. As such, she has no qualms about abusing her authority, subjects and allies, for the only things she truly cares about are herself, money and power. Unfortunately for Malty, she is nowhere near as intelligent as she believes herself to be. Over the course of the series, she has said and done several things, which made an already bad situation even worse. Additionally, her sadistic schemes and baseless cruelty, inevitably caused people to realise that she was nowhere near as nice or kind as she made herself out to be.
Above all else though, Malty Melromarc is completely incorrigible. She has never learnt from her mistakes and continues to not only employ the same strategy of framing people, whilst hiding behind her allies but continues to deny any wrongdoing. Even when evidence is presented that confirms her guilt beyond any doubt, Malty will continues to play innocent. Despite her numerous failures, Malty has never made any attempt to redeem herself or offer anything remotely akin to an apology for her misgivings. As a result of this Malty's friends, family and allies, save for the equally and decadent, eventually wised up to her act, abandoning the selfish spoiled woman to her self-imposed fate.
Skills and Abilities
Malty is quite an accomplished actress. In the early stages of the story, she manipulated several otherwise good people such as her father, the three heroes and to a lesser extent the citizens of Melromarc to get what she wanted. Usually, this revolved around money or some other form of material possession. However, Malty has also used her manipulations to make life difficult for other people. Her main victim was Naofumi, but she later did this to Motoyasu, Ren and Itsuki.
However, Malty's acting skills only go so far and as the series progressed, it became less and less effective. Observant individuals such as Naofumi, were able to recognise that Malty's body language did not necessarily match what she was saying. For instance, when feigning despair, the Shield Hero noticed that she never once shed a single tear. Others, like Pope Balmus, had their own twisted schemes at work and thus never once fell for her sob stories. Last but not least, some people, including Malty's own family (except for Aultcray initially) knew better than to trust her. As time went by, more and more people began to recognise Malty for the chronic backstabber and compulsive liar that she really was. Eventually, most people stopped listening to her, knowing that they could not believe a single word that came out of her mouth.
Although she carries a sword into battle, Malty rarely uses it. Since her typical strategy revolves around letting others do the fighting for her, she is not especially strong in combat. To make up for this, Malty uses magic to either enhance her allies abilities or, if necessary, catch her opponents of guard with a sneak attack. Malty specializes in fire-type magic, but is also quite adept at wind-type magic. She has been seen using the following skills:-
- Wing Blow: Throws a transparent fist of air at the target. This spell can only be seen if you are directly looking for it.
- Zweite Fire: A spell that creates a ball of fire.
- Drifa Hellfire: Summons balls of fire which fly towards the target at high speed. When Malty used the Vassal Axe, she was able to use Drifa Hellfire IV.
- Zweite Power: A buff spell which increases the strength and speed of the target.
- Zweite Fire Arrow: Information to be added later on.
Despite all these advantages, Malty has a very poor track record. She has lost every single battle that she fought in, with the exception of the second wave. Even when she had a level advantage, when facing powerful opponents like Naofumi and his allies, she is hopelessly outmatched. Her only accomplishment thus far, was not being captured or killed (at least not completely).
Aultcray, the Hero of the Cane, is her father. According to Mirellia, he was a doting parent and spoiled her rotten. Most of her evil personality stems from this upbringing, or at least that is what it was thought. Even if she causes any trouble, she pins it on someone else and he will punish the victim without any thoughts. She gets away from anything with the help of her father. Trash supported Malty in framing Naofumi of fake rape crime. As a King, he gave too much preferential treatment and blatant favoring to the Spear Hero with the sole reason of Malty being in his party.
However due to her actions of helping Takt and her later encouraging him to kill Queen Mirellia, her own mother and him later doing so to her own pleasure, Aultcray was shown to have been completely horrified by his own daughters actions and later fall into shock upon realizing Malty's true character. This would later cause the King to fall into a deep depression due to losing his wife and his own favorite daughter being responsible and finally realize Malty's true character.
Later upon recovering thanks to Naofumi, Aultcray orders her execution despite his personal attachment to her for the sake of his country and finally have Malty pay for her crimes. However she later managed to escape custody before it could be carried out.
Mirellia Q Melromarc
Growing up, Malty was nowhere as close to her mother as she was to her father. Unlike Aultcray, Mirellia was able to recognise her eldest daughters vile nature and tried everything within her power to correct her deplorable behavior. Whilst she did continue to love her daughter, Mirellia eventually realised that Malty was unfit to be a Queen and removed her from the line of succession, hoping that this would teach her some humility. Unfortunately, all it did was to drive a further wedge between them.
Once Malty made her attempt on Melty's life however, she crossed a line that even her mother could not forgive. After bringing Malty to account for her numerous crimes, Mirellia expelled Malty from the royal family, stripping her of all her titles and privileges. She also allowed Naofumi to inflict a further punishment on her daughter by allowing him to rename her Bitch. Although Mirellia talked Naofumi down from executing her, Malty completely hated her mother from that day forth.
Later, after betraying Melromarc and becoming a Vanguard of the Wave, Malty told her ally Takt to kill the Queen of Melromarc. When he succeeded Malty laughed ecstatically, showing how little regard she had for the woman who gave birth to her. It was this act, which opened her fathers eyes to Malty's true and sealed her status as a villain to the whole of Melromarc.
Malty has absolutely no affection for her younger sister, seeing her only as an obstacle between herself and Melromarc's throne. Melty, on the other hand, cares for her sister's well being (even after Malty attempted to murder her) but also understands that Malty needs to be punished and held accountable for her crimes.
Motoyasu is the Hero that Malty joins for most of the story. After betraying Naofumi, taking his stuff and framing him for an attempt of raping her, she gives Motoyasu the stolen chain mail and convinces him of her being the victim. Motoyasu completely trusts her; due mostly to his extreme gullibility, he ends up being used by her in most cases, such as leading him to nearly take Raphtalia away from Naofumi and levying a heavy tax on the village after Motoyasu became its lord. She seems to have sided with him purely because of his good looks. She easily convinced Motoyasu of falsely claiming Naofumi of having a "brainwashing shield," by which he supposedly brainwashed the people, kidnapping the second princess and killing Ren and Itsuki.
Later, when the charges on Naofumi were absolved by the Queen, Motoyasu refused to accept that Malty was the one who framed Naofumi for the longest time Motoyasu also seemed to pay little attention to Malty's suspicious behavior such as she giving a hard time for other female party members and kicking them out (even selling the one named Rino as a slave to a noble), her exceptionally wasteful spending which she claims it was for the "for the sake of the world," and also her attempt to kill Melty, which Ren and Itsuki have noticed but he didn't. Motoyasu even agreed to shoulder her debt to some extent. After the Spirit Tortoise incident, she abandons him completely. After that, he saw her badmouthing him to Ren of many false charges, which causes his mind to break to the point where he now literally sees all women (with exception to Filolial Queens and some other women) as pigs, indirectly resulting in the awakening of his Legendary Spear's Curse Series.
In the spin-off story "The Reprise of the Spear Hero," Motoyasu still recognizes Malty to some extent as he can only see and hear her like a pig, thus he was always wary of her and warn others about her.
Ren believes her accusation of Naofumi's attempt to rape her and berates Naofumi without hearing his side of the story. Later, Ren along with Itsuki points her involvement in the foul play of the Sacred Duel between Naofumi and Motoyasu and stands for Naofumi. Ren was the first to notice Malty's attempt to kill Melty and begins to deeply suspect of her and starts his own independent investigation with Itsuki. When all of her crimes brought to light by the Queen while clearing Naofumi's charges, Ren, along with Itsuki, agrees with the punishment to Malty befitting. After the Spirit Tortoise incident, Malty approached Ren and took advantage of his emotional state to manipulate him and use him to escape from Naofumi arresting her.
She later decided he'd be of little use, stole everything of value from him, left him a note belittling him, and joined Mald's revolution, causing Ren's already fragile mental state to fall completely and succumb to the dark influence of his Legendary Sword's Curse Series.
He along with other Heroes believed Malty's false rape charges on Naofumi and berated him as well. But he and Ren still questioned her involvement in the Sacred Duel between Naofumi and Motoyasu. After Ren's persuasion, Itsuki agrees to investigate the abduction case on Naofumi. He along with Ren calls out on her illegal involvement in the Duel and stands up for Naofumi. After her past actions were brought to light by the Queen, he along with Ren agrees with her punishment to be befitting. During their stay at Cal Mira Island, he said that Malty spoke in good terms to him before the punishment.
Sometime after the Spirit Tortoise incident, Malty approached Itsuki and took advantage of his emotional instability like she did with Ren. She told him all kinds of lies to convince him that she was trying to save people from slavery and that Naofumi was evil. This seemed to have activated the Pride Curse Series and caused him to only believe those who praised him such as her. He also began fighting at the coliseums in order to raise money for her and his former party, believing they were using it for their "noble" cause of saving people, unaware that they were just been leeching off of him and wasting his money on themselves. Like with Ren, she later decided to take all his money while leaving him in debt, leaving him a similar note of her berating everything about him.
In the "Reprise of the Spear Hero", Due to Motoyasu already knowing of her true personality and his own mental instability and seeing her only as a "red pig", she could no longer manipulate him to do her bidding and he actively avoided her, causing her to instead latch on to Itsuki and successfully manipulate him to do what she wants with little trouble.
To be added
To be added
Malty is ultimately the cause of Naofumi's dark and cynical personality due to the fact that she betrayed him and falsely framed him for the attempt of raping her for no other visible reason. Naofumi's originally kind personality snapped violently, he became distrustful of anyone who is not a slave, and for a very long time held contempt for women in general. She continued to make him suffer by every means of opportunity, like trying to take his slave away from him and interfering in the duel for ownership of his slave, calling him a criminal and framing any crime possible. When Naofumi's name was cleared, the queen gave the choice of punishment for Malty to Naofumi. Malty uses her craftiness and appeal to craft a facade of contrition towards Naofumi, with the intention of nullifying her punishment. But she was seen through, and he demanded the death penalty. This was the first and only time for Malty to call Naofumi by his name. After been talked down, her punishment was having her completely stripped of her royal status and her name changed to "Bitch."
Since then, Malty has grown to hate Naofumi more personally and fails to repent or accepted that she got what she deserved. When she approached Ren and Itsuki after the Spirit Tortoise incident, she tricked them into believing that Naofumi was the real evil and that she was the victim, referring him as the Shield Demon. Part of the lies she told them included saying that Naofumi was the one who unsealed the Spirit Tortoise, was working his slaves too hard and keeping all the profits to himself (something Naofumi agreed was true despite everyone on his side pointing it wasn't), and not using the powers of the Shield to bring back people's loved ones who had died, lying to Itsuki that it was a special power that only the Legendary Shield had. Even after betraying them, stealing everything they had, and then leaving a note where she admits these things while also insulting them, she still has the nerve to tell them that all her problems are Naofumi's' fault and she might be willing to love them if they kill him.
Understandably, Raptalia hates Malty for what she did to Naofumi and holds her as a personal enemy. Malty seemed to consider Raphtalia nothing but an annoyance and (as most noble people in Melromarc usually do) a lowly demi-human.
According to her mother and sister, Malty hides in the shadow and enjoys bringing misery to others. It is believed that the reason for her malicious behavior is because her father, Aultcray, spoiled her while she was growing up, causing her to abuse her authority without any consequences. Her lack of discipline and repulsive personality led to her younger sister Melty to be chosen heir apparent to the throne.
To fix her lousy personality, the Queen sent her to study abroad in a school at Faubley. However, all that accomplished was Malty's "graduation" from virginity.
Malty made her first appearance under the disguise of Myne Sophia. Claiming to be a female adventurer who once intended to join the Spear Hero/Motoyasu Kitamura's team after the four teenagers from other alternate realities was summoned to Melromarc to become Four Heroes who fought the Wave.
However, upon seeing Naofumi Iwanati, the Shield Hero was alone, scorned and detested, Malty volunteered to join Naofumi and assisted him in their early days of adventures. Naofumi started to trust Myne and believed she was a reliable companion in his adventure inside a world he barely knew.
The demonization of the Shield Hero
However, it was soon revealed that Myne/Malty was just using Naofumi's insecurity as well as his need for a companion to fool him and manipulate him. After staying in the hotel, Malty faked her kind attitude to Naofumi and bought him new armor as a way to convince him she meant for good. Soon, when Naofumi went asleep, Malty stole all of his equipment and money, before finding Motoyasu and lying to him that Naofumi went drunk and raped her.
Motoyasu immediately reported the king about it, and the next day, the royal soldiers arrested Naofumi, who was lost, confused, and panicked to find his money. All his equipment (barring his shield) had been stolen. Being forced to kneel in front of the king, Naofumi claimed he did nothing wrong when he saw Malty "crying" by Motoyasu, falsely accusing Naofumi trying to rape him, before gleefully and silently mocked Naofumi when no other people noticed this, except the victim.
Naofumi realized everything connected to "Myne Sophia" was a lie. She followed him to raid everything from him, nothing more. Enraged and disgusted, Naofumi broke free from the guards and vowed to return for vengeance before storming out of the palace. Afterward, Malty returned to the group of Motoyasu, who trusted her in every word because of her beauty and her manipulative skills.
Second Wave Arc
Naofumi VS. Motoyasu
After the second wave had been stopped, a party was thrown in celebration of victory. Among the partygoers were Naofumi and his slave companion, Raphtalia. During the festivities, Motoyasu demanded Raphtalla be freed, believing she was forced to be Naofumi's companion. The King ordered a 1-on-1 duel between Naofumi and Motoyasu, where should the Spear Hero be victorious, the demi-human would be freed. Naofumi was winning the duel, but lost after Myne hit him with a wind spell. Many people saw this act but were forced to be silent on the King's orders, as he wanted to discredit the Shield Hero further. After the match was called, Myne's true identity as Princess was revealed. However, Raphtailia slapped Motoyasu for his accusations, and Malty's deception was revealed by Ren and Itsuki, the other two heroes.
Filo Rial Arc
While training with his newly hatched Filolial Filo, Naofumi discovered Malty manipulated Motoyasu again. This time to heavily tax a small village, damaged by the last wave, to build his new base of operations. Naofumi called Motoyasu out for his idiocy and what he was doing to the village. During this time, several shadows, elite ninja-like figures who protect the Royal Family, approached Malty. On orders from her mother, Malty ordered a race between Naofumi and Motoyasu on their mounts. With Naofumi on Filo and Motoyasu on his dragon, the two raced around the village three times, with Malty ordering the royal guards to cheat using magic. Despite this, Naofumi still won, and Malty was ordered to leave.
According to the news gathered by Naofumi, the other three Heroes were on their own mission and fought in other realms like playing games. In Motoyasu's case, he accompanied Malty to save a village from famine. It was speculated by Naofumi that Malty suggested Motoyasu to use a kind of magical seed to grow plants to harvest more foods from its fruits.
However, unbeknownst to Motoyasu, the seed was actually demonized. The plants it grew could only be ended up fully mutated into monstrous beings when it was not sealed properly. Eventually, the mutant plants turned into an enormous and menacing threat to the villagers nearby, and it took the combined force of Naofumi, Raphtalia, and Filo to destroyed it. Afterward, Naofumi reconstructed the seed with his newly found power and made it harmless, successfully solving both famine and plant monster's invasion at the same time.
Whether Malty knew about the seed's true nature was unknown, but judging from the warning sign in front of the chest where the seed was contained, it was highly speculated that Malty actually knew the consequence all along when she stole the tabooed seed, but she didn't care anyway since she only tried to manipulate Motoyasu just like she once manipulated Naofumi.
Third Wave Arc
Devil of the Shield Arc
On orders from the King, several knights altered footage of Naofumi's party to make them look like criminals, even that he was brainwashing Melty, Malty's little sister, and next in line to the throne. Using this, Malty organized the remaining three parties of the Cardinal Heroes to attack Naofumi in a forest. During this time, Malty attempts to kill Melty with a powerful fire spell, creating a wildfire. This action horrified the other heroes, including Motoyasu, who questioned the excessive force on her sister.
Motoyasu's party would later catch up to Naofumi's again, believing Naofumi killed Ren and Itsuki (due to Malty’s manipulations once again). During this time, the two parties are almost killed by Biscas T. Balmus, the Pope of the Church of the Three Heroes and the mastermind of the summoning of the three heroes.

- Malty Melromarc was the center of one of the most controversial subjects of 2018-2019 following the first episodes launch. Even before its release, Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari/Rising of the Shield Hero preemptively stirred up "drama online" when fans discovered that the series revolved around a man being falsely accused of rape. With critics labeling it as a show for “vicious regressive misogynists". In several places of Internet, the false rape accusation orchestrated by Malty in the first chapter (episode) managed to enrage those online who take offense at the mere thought that a woman could falsely accuse a man of rape, claiming women never lie about rape accusations. Anime News Network, for example, received a lot of negative comments after one of their critics ranted Malty's false accusation of rape was all about the author's "personal hardships".
- Despite being easily the most hated character of the series by the entire fanbase, Malty still managed to enter in the Popularity Poll of 2019 with five-hundred and fifty votes and almost making it into the top ten.

- Naofumi personally considers Malty's handwriting to be messy, implying she doesn't like to write or even study.
- Interestingly, the respective Japanese voice actresses of Melromarc Sisters also worked together in Date A Live anime series in voicing Yamai Sisters. The voice actress of Malty, Sarah Emi Bridcutt, voiced Yuzuru Yamai, and the voice actress of Melty (Malty's younger sister), Maaya Uchida, voiced Kaguya Yamai.
- Also, Sarah Emi Bridcutt is the only cast in the anime that will reprise her role in the 2020 stage adaptation.

- In the light novel continuity, Malty had her body destroyed in Volume 19, but her soul was saved. Thus, she is technically still alive and will probably return in future publications.
