==Official Info==
<blockquote>''"I, Puella Magi Sayaka Miki, will protect the people of Mitakihara Town, until the very end!"'' - Sayaka Miki, [[Episode 5]].</blockquote>
* Madoka’s classmate and good friend. Energetic and lively, which is perhaps why her sword is the only melee weapon among the four.
* Ms. Aoki’s Design Check!: Her personality is so boyish that I had to be careful not to make her look too boyish too. So I gave her hair a diagonal line in back, to straddle the line between short and medium length.
* Magical girl outfit: Sayaka’s outfit is the closest to combat gear. Since her sword is a melee weapon, I paid attention to that while designing her clothes. (Aoki)
** Her outfit features diagonal-cut skirt and shoulderless top for ease of movement. Add a cape, and she’s a picturesque swordswoman.
* Sayaka's height range, according to the [[Puella_Magi_Production_Note|Production Note]], is [[:Media:PN 10.jpg|158-160cm]]. Her birthday, blood type and other biographical information is unknown at this time.
* Sayaka has powerful regenerative abilities, she can heal herself much faster than any other magical girls. 
* Sayaka becomes a magical girl in Episode 4; Episode 5 details her debut as a magical girl, including the scene where she makes the contract with Kyubey.
* Sayaka turns into a witch named [[Oktavia von Seckendorff]] in Episode 8. While she has brought hope to others, the balance between hope and despair is then mitigated by an equal amount of despair appearing in Sayaka's soul.  This despair eventually overcomes Sayaka, shatters her Soul Gem, and turns it into a Grief Seed.
* Her witch form was killed by Kyoko in Episode 9; Madoka and Kyoko attempted to bring Sayaka back to her normal form, but according to Kyubey that was impossible.
* Sayaka remains dead in the new timeline created by Madoka in the final episode, though Madoka grants her final wish to hear Kyousuke play violin. From Mami and Kyoko's perspective, it appears as though she sacrificed herself to destroy a Demon.
* Madoka and Sayaka are childhood friends, [[Mahou Shoujo Madoka☆Magica NitroPlus Novel|the NitroPlus novel]] goes into detail regarding their encounter and their friendship.
<blockquote>''"I have made up my mind to become a type of Puella Magi different than you all. I have decided that I won't associate myself with those who use and abandon others. I don't need to be rewarded for my work. I'll never use magic for my own benefit."'' <br>
''"I will die when I lose by witches. That's well, I'm not needed any more if I'm unable to defeat witches."'' - Sayaka Miki, [[Episode 8]].</blockquote>
*The first character in her last name (美) means "beauty". The last character (樹) means "tree". Her name could also be written (幹) "tree trunk" or (神酒) "sake offered to the gods."
*Her last name can also be used as a first name.
*Her first name is written in hiragana, which has no special meaning. The word ''sayaka'' (さやか【明か/清か, usually written in hiragana) can mean "clear", "fresh", or "bright" in Japanese.
*The official [[Licensing in Taiwan|Chinese translation]] uses (沙耶香) as the kanji for her name. The characters also have no particular meaning (沙 "sand" 耶 "question mark" 香 "fragrant") and are used mainly for their phonetic value in Japanese to represent the word ''sayaka'' as a name. No official kanji of her name exists in the original Japanese version.
*She describes herself as having been born "petit bourgeois," which is French for "[http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/petite_bourgeoisie petty bourgeois]." This would mean that her family is at least from the middle class, but is by no means from the upper class (despite the fact that, if Japan has even less living space in the future than it does now, her family's apartment is far larger than a normal middle-class family could afford).
*Although her character design depicts her with a two-edged sword she is seen using a katana with a saber-like guard in the anime. The manga uses the sword from her original design.
*According to recent interview, "Sayaka had her personality based on a 'Gen Urobuchi character'"
**In episode 5, Madoka said she always act before thinking twice, and is easy to conflict with others. But on the other side, she is kind, courageous and willing to work hard for others. Homura commented her good side is fatal for a magical girl. Her kindness makes her ignorant, her courage makes her careless, and she'll get no return on her hard work for others.
*When Sayaka transformed in the train in Episode 8, the fate of the two hosts was open to interpretation in the original scenario by Gen Urobuchi.  While Shinbo has recently confirmed that Sayaka did not kill the two men in the anime, they were in fact killed in the manga version.
**The train conversation scene between the two hosts is actually based on a real event that [[NewType_2011-05#Sayaka_Train_Interpretation|Gen Urobuchi witnessed.]]
*Shinbo stated in an interview that he liked Sayaka and asked Gen Urobuchi if something could be done to get her back to life but Urobuchi said that was impossible.
**It is unknown if Gen Urobuchi had a twisted smile while he answered to Shinbo.
*Sayaka's sword has a [[Puella_Magi_Madoka_Magica_Art_Book#Sayaka.27s_Sword|scabbard]] but was never used in the anime.
*Sayaka's hairpin disappears when she transforms into magical girl form.
**According to [[Puella Magi Madoka Magica Official Guidebook "You Are Not Alone"#Staff Discussion|Official Guidebook]], both Shinbo and Aoki think it would be better to attach something instead. Aoki has tried adding another hairband with something in star or ball shape, but that would make her look like playing in a serious fight so she gave up such idea. Urobuchi said a cloak is flashy enough, however.
***[[Manga Time Kirara Magica]] volume 1 showed Sayaka in her transformed state with a [[media:Sayaka_hairpin_Manga_Time_Kirara_Magica_1.jpg|new hairpin]] in the shape of ƒƒ, the musical notation for "fortissimo" or "very loud." This fits her musical theme and her bold personality. Apparently the staff finally found a design they're happy with.
****And finally the staff have the chance to give her that hairpin in the [[Madoka Magica Movie]]. According to Director Shinbo, this can be seem as compensation for her since she is such a character always suffers the fate.
*Eri Kitamura (Sayaka) [[:file:4chan comment living sayaka.jpg|likes the company of other seiyuu]], besides Ai Nonaka ([[Kyoko]]).
*According with Gen Urobuchi, even if Sayaka won over Kyousuke, [[Puella_Magi_Madoka_Magica_Official_Guidebook_"You_Are_Not_Alone"#Page_120|she would never be happy with him.]]
**This doesnt seem to bother [[Yuri_undertones#Sayaka_and_Kyoko|the yurifan crowd.]]
*Her Seiyuu, Eri Kitamura also provided the voice of another Magical Girl whose first name was Miki and whose theme color was blue, in the anime series 'Fresh PreCure'
*In an interview, when asked about Madoka's casual clothes, Shinbo said that he forgot to have a scene where Sayaka also wear casual wears. He feels a little regret.
==Speculations and Observations==
<blockquote>''"Wishing for someone else's happiness means someone has to be cursed to suffer as much. That's what it means to be a Puella Magi."'' - Sayaka Miki, [[Episode 8]].</blockquote>
*Many fans believed Sayaka is the [[Witch_from_the_dream_in_episode_one|witch in Madoka's dream]] at the beginning of Episode 1. However, this has been disproved by [[Oktavia von Seckendorff|Sayaka's witch form]] hinted in [[Episode 8]] and shown in full in [[Episode 9]], which is entirely different in appearance from the witch Madoka saw.
*While using her magic, [[Deciphering the notes|circles of notes]] are sometimes seen around or near her. This is believed to be related to her wish to heal [[Kamijou]].
**Due to the nature of her wish, Sayaka has self-healing abilities and great endurance. In battle, she can combine this self-healing special ability with magical techniques that detach her senses and block all forms of pain, becoming a nearly unstoppable berserker.
* School uniform: Her figure is flat and plain, but her chest is bigger than Madoka’s. Her hairbow is a stitched design. Below, she wears simple navy-blue high socks.
* Sayaka seems to have had an extremely black-and-white and idealistic vision of love, which seems to have contributed to her breakdown. She made a contract to heal the arm of the boy she has a crush on (Kamijou), but after learning the truth about the Magical Girl contract, she felt that she couldn't approach him, and this wasn't helped by Kamijou's obliviousness to her feelings and Hitomi's more assertive behavior that ended up with Hitomi becoming Kamijou's girlfriend, unaware of Sayaka's problem. This threw her in a self-destructive spiral, in which she refused help from others (especially Kyoko, Homura and Madoka), seeking to either die or kill to dull the pain.
* Sayaka is the only Puella Magi in the series to wear a cloak.
** The cloak or cape could be symbolic to emphasize her ideal role as a knight of justice or a hero to the defenseless; a desire to become a role model just like Mami.
* The cutlass is a well-known nautical weapon for sailors and pirates, probably an attempt to connect Sayaka to the element of water.
** Water is usually considered to be an element of healing and purification in religion and mythology. Major faiths incorporate ritual washing.
* The "C" Motif could relate to the link between her and music. In [[wikipedia:Medieval_music|Medieval music]], the [[wikipedia:Gregorian_chant|Gregorian Chant]] system uses a C-like figure to denote a "[[wikipedia:Do_(musical_note)|Do]]" in a staff.
* It seems Sayaka does not always contract with Kyubey in all timelines. What happened to her if she does not contract is unknown. But once she get contracted, her fate is always becoming a witch.
*The grief seed, which Madoka used for purifying Homura's Soul Gem in Episode 10's Timeline 3, may be Sayaka herself (likely to be transformed from Sayaka's Soul Gem). This is because the 5 lines being seen on grief seed look like the musical Staff.  
* The Blu-Ray version of Sayaka's transformation is accompanied with a display of musical scores and [[Deciphering the notes|circles of notes]].
** It is suspected that the notes are from [[wikipedia:Tekla Bądarzewska-Baranowska|Tekla Bądarzewska-Baranowska]]'s [[wikipedia:Maiden's_Prayer|A Maiden's Prayer]] ([http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm14820939 乙女の祈り])
*** The irony wont be missed with those familiar with {{Spoiler|Kyoko's prayer in Episode 9.}}
*** The [http://www.cowboylyrics.com/tabs/wills-bob/maidens-prayer-298.html lyrics of the song] could be interpreted as Sayaka's prayer for a miracle to heal [[Kyousuke]]'s hand {{spoiler|and the foreshadowing of her tragic ending with her wish.}}
* Sayaka calls other main characters their first names only, except Homura and Mami.
** The way she calls Homura varies in every timeline. This reflects how she sees Homura.
** In the novel, it is written that Sayaka is easy to get familiar with her classmates and talk to them.
*The [[Drama CD 2|Drama CD ''"Sunny Day Life"'']] gives the impression that Sayaka is not a bright student.
**It gets worse, even if Madoka's test scores are low, they are higher than Sayaka's.
***We usually see Sayaka sleeping in class. No wonder she gets low scores.
===Sayaka's Farewell===
<blockquote>''"It's fine. I just wanted to hear him perform one more time. I wanted many people to hear his violin. Just remembering that feeling is enough for me. I don't have any regrets left." <br> "But I am a bit upset about how things turned out. I can't help the way things went with Hitomi-chan. She's way too good for Kyosuke, but I am sure she'll make him happy, won't she?"'' Sayaka's last conversation with Madoka, [[Episode 12]]. </blockquote>
*Sayaka still dies in the new world, but this time she passes without regrets from her choice.
* Even though Sayaka is the only supporting character of the series to remain dead in the new world created by Madoka (due to using all her magic), the fact that Sayaka and Madoka were able to meet up one last time to watch Kamijou's violin playing, along with the nature of Madoka's wish, has resulted in many fans suggesting that Sayaka's soul, although erased from the world, now resides in the same plane of existence that Madoka inhabits, where she will watch over all the other Puella Magi along with Madoka.
** Of course, this could be because Madoka personally visited every Magical Girl in all of time before they turned into Witches {{spoiler|and instead let them merely die, ''before'' she was erased from reality as a regular girl.}}. She could easily have taken Sayaka to see Kamijou perform Ave Maria during this brief meeting. {{spoiler|She did become a goddess, after all}}.
** According with Mami and her understanding of "The Law of Wheels", as a result of a Puella Magi having sought a wish brings despair into the world, her spirit disappears before that happens.
** It is suggested that Madoka's presence is there to help Sayaka to move on, to help her ease her ending so she would have no regrets.
*** Madoka informs Sayaka that she could have changed Sayaka's fate but in doing so she would have interfered with Kyosuke's fate as well and he wouldnt be able to play the violin. So Madoka decided to respect Sayaka's choice and tearfully Sayaka is fine with it.
* In the new timeline created by Madoka, she is not only allowed to listen to Kyousuke's performance, but she is also given the choice to become a knight of justice to the very end, erasing her fate of becoming a witch, an enemy of her beliefs in her mind.
**It appears that Sayaka also remembers who Madoka is in the new timeline created by the latter. This is due to Sayaka's choice of words when conversing with Madoka in episode 12; while watching Kamijou play the violin in a private session, Sayaka confesses to Madoka that she has caused her best friend a lot of trouble. This suggests that Sayaka is aware, or at least has some understanding of the emotional hurt she had inflicted on Madoka (and possibly her other friends) in the previous timelines because of her stubbornness to hold true to her own ideals, which led to her Witch transformation.
*** In that scene, Madoka says, "No, I have to apologize, too. To save you I had to erase it all. And this future will disappear, too." This suggests that the scene happens before the universe resets. The Miki Sayaka of the new world may not remember Madoka.
**** It's all metaphysics, who is to say at this point.
*At the Otakon 2012 panel, Urobuchi explained the reason why Sayaka had to die, <i>"This was something that director Shinbo proposed at one of the dubbing sessions, that Sayaka Miki could've been kept alive in the story. But my conviction was that in order for the audience to really understand why Madoka became a God at the end, it was important that she die. After all was said and done, Shinbo said to me that the amount of responsibility placed on a middle school girl may have been too much. We explore that more in the movie."</i>[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/convention/2012/otakon/4].
==Sayaka in Oriko Magica==
<blockquote>''"Madoka, what are you going to do after you get there? [...] I don't know why Homura is fighting against those things. But there is no way you can help, Madoka. You'll just slow down Homura. That's why...I'll go help her!"''</blockquote>
<blockquote>''"We're friends, right? We can't abandon [[Homura Akemi|her]]."'' - Sayaka Miki, [[Oriko_Magica#Chapter_7.2C_the_final_chapter:_To_protect_my_world|Puella Magi Oriko Magica, Chapter 7]].</blockquote>
*Sayaka is mentioned in Chapter 3. She does not appear until chapter 4, however. Sayaka is also protected by [[Homura]] so that she never gets contracted there.
*Unlike the other timelines, she considers Homura as a friend, as she declared in chapter 7.
*She helped Hitomi to escape from familiars' attacks from chapter 5-7, when Mitakihara Junior High is covered with a witch's barrier. Madoka reunites with them, and together, they go to help Homura.  {{spoiler|Madoka is killed by Oriko, and Sayaka and Hitomi are seen mourning her just before Homura resets the timeline.}}
==Sayaka in Kazumi Magica==
Sayaka's and Oktavia's silhouettes appeared once during Umika's explanation about Witches, as she says that witches are the end state of magical girls.
==Sayaka in Madoka Magica: The Different Story==
Sayaka acts more like a perfectionist than she did in other media. She often obsesses over the mistakes that she makes and is very conscious of other people's expectations.
* In this manga, Sayaka tries to escape when Mami requests that she study magic to find witches efficiently.
* It is shown that Sayaka can also heal others in this story.
* Sayaka appears in the later part of chapter 4. In chapter 7, it is shown that Sayaka makes contract and prevents Mami from danger.
* When Hitomi tells her that she will confess to Kyousuke, Sayaka's sense of responsibility as a magical girl prevents her from confess first. Again, she is unable to bear her own selfishness, especially when she didn't help Hitomi who was in witch's trap.
* In chapter 8, Sayaka exhausted her magic and becomes a witch. According to Kyubey, she is too weak to gain any good when there are many more powerful magical girls.
==Sayaka in Sunny Day Life==
*The ''[[Drama CD 2|"Sunny Day Life"]]'' Drama CD depicts Sayaka checking Hitomi's panties with ''dubious'' interest. Making her look like some sort of pervert.
**Even Madoka knows this is wrong.
==Sayaka in the [[Puella Magi Madoka Magica Portable|PSP Game]]==
*There is a [[Dengeki PlayStation 2012-02|Sayaka route]] in the game, which is different from the anime. The scenario is supervised by Gen Urobuchi who wrote the script for the anime series. But there are multiple different 'if' developments. There is a different 'Sayaka route', in which it is possible to prevent Sayaka from becoming a witch. She may fight with other magical girls.
**It is possible to have a better ending, or to have a more cruel one than the anime, depending on the player's choices.

**In the Bonus Route, Sayaka has a confrontation with Hitomi about Kyousuke.
