Tsubasa Tiger was written from Tsubasa's perspective instead of Koyomi's. What's scary to note about Tsubasa is that all of the kai specialists noted her as "dangerous".
Meme was wary of the first time he met Tsubasa, Episode thought that something was off about her and Kaiki stated that the person who arranged the meeting between him and Karen during the events of "Karen Bee" was not normal.
Kaiki later on stated that he had no ideas about Tsubasa nor any information on what she is like, but that he would try to run away so as to never meet her. Tsubasa is so unnatural that in the near future, she would essentially become the second coming of Gaen. That is partly the reason why Black Hanekawa became a monster-class oddity despite the sawarineko being a low-class oddity because it had possessed Tsubasa.
If the sawarineko possessed somebody else, it would not be as strong as when it possessed Tsubasa. She's older than Tsukihi and enjoys doing outdoor activities. Despite being younger, Karen is taller than Koyomi, much to Koyomi's dismay.

In Suruga Devil, she became a high school student and she also has gotten closer with Araragi to the point that Kanbaru worries that their relationship will go down a wrong turn in other words, incest. It also seems that when Karen went to high school, her and Tsukihi's 'Fire Sisters' duo was disbanded.
She's the youngest of the Araragi family. Unlike her sister Karen, she prefers doing indoor activities. Contrary to her personality, she constantly changes her hair style and is short-tempered to the point that Koyomi describes her as having hysteria. She revealed that she, unlike Karen, was not that invested in preserving justice and was just using Karen's vision to run wild.
She is actually the reincarnation of a phoenix and has been since before she was even born. The phoenix entered the baby's body when it was still in the womb and by now both beings' minds have become one. She is immortal, except the only thing that can end her life is a natural death from old age. When she was a child, she fell down a building due to antics related to the fire sisters and was hospitalised and her body was covered with scars, though there are no traces of them now.
Tsukihi constantly changes her hairstyle due to her fickle attitude and the fact that her hair and nails grow longer in a short period of time. If styled in a bob-cut, it will grow to her back within a month. Karen and Tsukihi were supposed to be twins however, due to the phoenix possessing her, Tsukihi was born a few months later.
Koyomi is actually more scared of Tsukihi than Karen despite Karen being physically stronger due to Tsukihi's unpredictable behaviour. It was revealed that the reason she and Karen found boyfriends was so that Koyomi would become jealous. They found boyfriends in Koyomi's image with Tsukihi's boyfriend being taller than she. She and Karen also thought that Tsubasa was Koyomi's girlfriend. She has feelings for her brother.

Shinobu and Araragi form a connection by which they share each other's emotions and senses. In Mayoi Jiangshi, in the alternate timeline, Shinobu goes berserk when Koyomi is killed by Black Hanekawa and swears to destroy the world created by the Jiangshi that has been swarming the town. It seems that Shinobu truly cares for Koyomi and when she sees the alternate timeline's Koyomi alive and seemingly falls in love with himshe weeps blood.
Acknowledging their vital connection, Koyomi states that he will die with Shinobu when the day comes. She does not seem to like Nadeko very much. In "Shinobu Time", a mysterious entity seems to be after her and she tells Koyomi that she has fought this entity before in her past but was then unable to defeat it.

She has an ability called Unlimited Rulebook by which she can shape-shift her finger. She is challenged to a fight by Shinobu at the end of Tsukihi Phoenix and is beaten to a bloody pulp. Her name is determined by Kaiki as Yozuru does not have the courage to bind Yotsugi. She was once a human and has been resurrected as a tsukumogami by a half dozen genius specialists including Kaiki and Yozuru as a school project.
They all had ownership over her but most of them gave up their claims. Yotsugi decided to have Yozuru as her master and in exchange, she becomes Yozuru's fighting partner. However, as a shikigami, she does not suffer any permanent damage. Kaori Mizuhashi A mysterious girl who claims to be Meme's niece. It is mentioned by Kaiki in season 2 that Meme Oshino had no family, thus the veracity of her claims is unsure.
She is the main cause of leading Nadeko to become a Snake God having leaked the information about the whereabouts of the talisman.
She somehow seems indirectly related to Hachikuji's fate, with her appearance at the same time as the black object leading to Hachikuji to pass off to the next world, and her stated 'job' as that being of punishing liars, similar to that of the black object.
Kabukimonogatari (Bakemonogatari, #5) by NisiOisiN

She loves mathematics, considering it beautiful. Sodachi despises Koyomi for unknown reasons but Koyomi believes it's because he is better at math than she is. In a class test, Koyomi scores while Sodachi scores There had been a disparity in the math exam results between those who attended the group study and those who did not attend.
Sodachi held a class meeting in order to determine the culprit who had leaked the questions for the exam and appointed Koyomi as the moderator of the class assembly as he was the only one who scored a on the test.
The class assembly itself was inconclusive, but Sodachi was pinned as the cheater who leaked the math questions through a majority vote. Koyomi is sure that Sodachi was not the perpetrator, but is powerless to stop the accusation because Sodachi herself is the assembly organizer. She did not attend for two years after the incident and had returned to school randomly 6 months before graduation.

It was revealed that he is affiliated with Kaiki, Yozuru and Gaen as they were in the same club during university. He considers himself as a pacifist and didn't resort to violence except for the time he was dealing with the first appearance of Black Hanekawa.
He also says that he's a neutral person and doesn't side with either humans nor kai. He will occasionally say, "You are really energetic, did something good happen?

He was a member of the club that Oshino, Yozuru and Gaen were in during university. He prefers "fakes" more than the real thing because as fakes acts more like the real thing, the fakes ended up surpassing the real thing. He loves money and doesn't like things that cannot be bought with money.
His animal motif is a crow and in the novel, he is described as someone who laughs similarly like a crow. He doesn't believe in the existence of oddities, and consider himself as a fake specialist and that he only uses them to trick people out of their money.
Because of that, he is very knowledgeable about the details surrounding kais. He was also responsible for making her parents divorce. He returns to the town that the main characters are from in order to trick middle school girls out of their money. This time he was the one responsible for selling the information about the snake curse that led up to the case involving Nadeko. Hitagi developed feelings for him when she thought he could cure her condition, which is presumably the real reason she desperately tried to keep Koyomi away from him and for her intense hatred of Kaiki after she got tricked by him.

One of the most notable thing about her is that she does not step on the ground. Between the three kouhais during university, she was the only one that graduated.
She is physically the strongest human in the series and fights by using her fists that are powerful enough to punch through multiple floors at once. It was revealed that as an exchange for her immense strength, she was given a condition to never step on the earth. Yozuru says that she is fond of Koyomi as an individual, however if Koyomi makes a move that is going against her sense of justice, she will not hesitate to kill him.
Yozuru uses her judgement on which immortal kais to fight and hunt by separating them into what is alive forever and what is dead forever. She then hunts kai that are considered alive forever and that's why Yotsugi is her assistant as Yotsugi is technically not alive.
