Tatsuya Kaname (鹿目 タツヤ Kaname Tatsuya) is a minor supporting character in Puella Magi Madoka Magica.
- Madoka's little brother. He's three years old and goes to kindergarten.
The theories below have been proven right.
At least one element from the franchise is rendering them valid.
- In episode 12 it is revealed that he still has some attachment to Madoka even though she was wiped from physical existence; it's possible he can see her or has residual memories of her.
- In the audio commentary for episode 12, Urobuchi explained that the reason Tatsuya knows about Madoka is because he can see her. He says it's how little children can see things they're not suppose to, because they don't know they're not suppose to see it. Sadly, Urobuchi also said when he grows up, he won't be able to anymore and will likely forget all about it.
