Eruka Frog (エルカ・フロッグ, Eruka Furoggu) is a frog-themed Witch who often serves under Medusa Gorgon along with fellow witch, Free. She normally says "kero", the Japanese sound for croaking when speaking or "ribbit" in English installment and Eruka can use many frog-themed techniques as well as being the owner of Tadpole Jackson.
Like many other Witches, Eruka craves destruction and enjoys the fact that she was born a Witch. However, she is extremely cowardly, preferring to flee rather than fight, and never hesitates to beg for mercy when cowed. She can also be considered clingy to her partner, Free, even becoming needy and docile. Despite her malicious intent, Eruka has an earnest disposition with other Witches, including Mizune, with whom she is close friends with. She can be demeaning to those whom she considers inferior, though. Unlike more powerful and malign witches, such as Medusa, Eruka is not so cold and heartless, on several times showing regret and consideration for others. She expresses guilt about lying to the Mizune family, and tries to reassure Crona when he/she is asked to spy on Professor Stein.
Unlike Medusa and Arachne, Eruka is of very low caliber, and posses very little fatal power. This may be a result of being younger than most witches. However, there has been no background given about Eruka as to explain just how old she is. The most advanced magic she has been shown to use is Soul Protect.
Befitting her typically passive nature, Eruka remains a woman of rather modest build with long straight silvery hair and a narrow mouth, accentuated by a prominent black circle at each end, resembling the air sacs on a frog's mouth. Her usual attire consists of a thigh length black dress with a white polka dot pattern over what appears to be a dark gray blouse, black pants and knee-high white boots. Arguably the most obtrusive characteristic of her appearance is her distinctive orange hat with a frog-like face, which further reflects her amphibian theme. The hat occasionally mimics her facial expressions.
- The name "Eruka" (エルカ, Eruka) comes from reorganizing the order of the syllables in the Japanese word "kaeru" (カエル; Literally meaning "Frog").
