After that encounter, they meet again in the episodes The septarian's apprentice and Paint it black. In the episode The brave robot will take the diamond it is revealed that Kid starting to fall in love with Crona. In Another Cronarella story, Kid decided to go to Antagonistan, to save her from her abusive family.

  • Ciel: He treats Ciel with tolerance and respect and is good friends with him.
  • Eren: Due to being the same age, Kid treats Eren as one of his few allies among the queen's personal staff and they are best friends.
  • Death: His relationship with his father is similar to that with the queen. He really admires and respects him though he still has times when he doubts or disagrees with him. Their relationship was displayed in Guardians of family bonds, wherein it was revealed that Kid has left Filmville and moved in Movietown, as an attempt to start a life of his own. However, his decision makes him feel guilty, as he believes that he has abandoned his father.
  • Asura: He is shown to have a strong hatred towards his brother, because he is a villain.
  • Sebastian: It is said that gods and demons are supposed to hate each other, but apparently that does not go for to Kid and Sebastian. Since Kid often visits Ciel, he and Sebastian sometimes end up interacting with each other. They respect each other as colleagues and seem to get along most of the time, but sometimes Kid shows disgust towards Sebastian.
  • Varian: In their earlier interactions, being the receiver of Crona's feelings, Varian saw Kid as a threat. Because of this, Varian started to see himself as less attractive and unworthy of love. Kid himself, never had any grudge against the alchemist. Throughout his stay in Antagonistan, he treated Varian with sympathy and even apologized for being the cause of these feelings. The two eventually become friends, to the point that Kid offers Varian live in Movietown instead.
  • Toffee: In The septarian's apprentice, Toffee kidnaps Kid, with the intention of making the boy his apprentice. Despite being a positive character, Toffee treated him as an equal, saving him from Bloth and Envy, offering a towel to wipe his face and even asking if he is okay. While being held hostage, Kid starts to see antagonists in a different light- he started to see their pain and how much they have struggled, however, this still did not make him join them.
