Although many episodes of the Gintama 銀魂 anime series are based on the manga, there are a number of characters that are created by the anime creators where the episode is not based on any manga chapter. This section only covers characters that appear in the anime series, and therefore some original manga characters may not be featured.Refer to footnote below for romaji name conventions used in this wiki. 
↑This wiki displays the romanised Japanese names following the kanji readings, i.e. family name first, followed by first name format. This is different from the usual convention of representing romanised names in first-name-followed-by-family-name in other publications. Contributors are requested to adopt this wiki's format of family-name-followed-by-first-name for all romanised Japanese names in order to be consistent with the kanji names.
