Characters / Brave 10

The Braves (In general)

Saizo Kirigakure

Voiced by: Daisuke Ono

  • Attack Reflector: His "Heaven's Return" technique.
  • Badass
  • BFS / Black Swords Are Better: His Marishi-ten.
  • Bishōnen
  • Calling Your Attacks: "On,Marishi-ten Sowaka!", "Shunko!" "Ougi: Tenga Gaeshi" "Ninpou: Samidare!"
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: He has some "tricks" to keep sober.
  • Character Development: In the start of the series he was aloof, uncaring, aggressive, and hated the thought of working under a lord/being a Sanada's Brave. By the end, while not necessarily nice, he's far more gentle and calm, and openly admits liking being a Brave. Kakei even lampshades it when they were drinking in Jinpachi's ship, noting that he has become more gentle.
  • Chick Magnet: Though he attracts not only chicks. Look below.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Receives THREE from Hanzo, and another one from Sasuke in their second fight. Gives one to Kamanosuke.
  • The Determinator: No matter how much he's crippled, he refuses to give up.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Kamanosuke certainly does.
  • Expy: Saizo, in appearance, is nearly identical to Noctis. He's also similar to Uchiha Sasuke
  • Flash Step: His "Shunko" technique. During his brief fight with Anastasia, he shows that he's capable of using a Flash Step without his Shunko, which is part of his "Hunter Falcons" technique.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Gets several ones in his body from his battles with Hanzo.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords
  • I Call It "Vera": Calls his sword "Marishi-ten Sowaka".
  • If You Kill Him, You Will Be Just Like Him: Is stopped by Isanami from killing Kamanosuke when he had the latter in a Sword over Head position.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Light Is Not Good: More of light is not nice. Also, he dresses completely in black, and his sword is black too.
  • Lightning Bruiser
  • Only Sane Man: Divides this position with Rokuro, as amongst the braves, they are the most reasonable and down-to-earth ones. However, he's quite capable of having some fits of rage or bloodlust.
  • Red Baron: "The Marishi-ten", "The undefeated one".
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: He gets one during his fight with Kamanosuke.
  • Rugged Scar: Episode 6 of the anime shows us he has a big one on the right side of his abdomen as well as several smaller ones throughout his shoulders and arms
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Manly man to Sasuke's sensitive guy. Sasuke is more boyish whereas Saizo is more masculine and matured. Fits the trope of Areal Man Is A Killer quite well when Yuri realizes he's killed so many people, he also doesn't show much reluctance when doing so. He's got more than one just one Rugged Scar throughout his body. He's 19 but Wise Beyond Their Years with enough life experience to become the leader of the braves at the end of the Anime. He also doesn't cry when Anastasia betrays them in the ninth episode.
  • The Rival: Views Sasuke and Hanzo as his rivals. The former reciprocates. The latter thinks that Saizo is way out of his level for him (Hanzo) to consider him (Sasuke) a rival.
  • Tall, Dark and Handsome
  • Tsundere: Towards Isanami. It's more pronounced in the early chapters/episodes.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: He and Sasuke.
  • Worf Effect: He's thrashed around by Hanzo in his three battles with the man, and by Sasuke during his "second fight" with him.
  • Worf Had the Flu: During his second fight with Sasuke, he was thrashed mostly because was having a Heroic B.S.O.D. for failing to protect Isanami. Sasuke himself was only punching Saizo to get him out of it.

Sanada Yukimura

  • Bishōnen: More like biseinen but still.
  • Cool Old Guy
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Strongly implied. He never really fights in the series, and the closest to one is when Masamune forces him to duel. Masamune is using a real katana, while the only "weapon" he has is his fan. Still, he holds his own quite easily, even blocking one strike with his sandals, but decides to throw the fight soon after, laughing all the way.
  • Dirty Old Man: Combined with Lovable Sex Maniac.
  • Guile Hero
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: It's clear that he knows more than he lets on, that he's more powerful than it seems, and his cheerful persona is just a masquerade. Saizo openly criticizes him for it, but he just laughs it off. He's basically the Kisuke Urahara of the series.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Just ask Rokuro.

Unno Rokuro

Sarutobi Sasuke

Voiced by: Tetsuya Kakihara


Voiced by: Yuu Asakawa

  • An Ice Person
  • Berserk Button: Getting peeked in bath, of course. Not really, her real one is family. Due to her Dark and Troubled Past, Ana seriously hated the concept of 'family' and hanging around with the Braves pissed her to no end, it's surprising that she managed to keep that Cool Big Sis facade until her time of betrayal.
  • Boobs of Steel
  • Calling Your Attacks
  • Combat Stilettos
  • Cool Big Sis: For awhile. She deconstructs that when she betrayed the team.
  • Dark Action Girl
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She was a Russian little girl who got stuck in Japan, seeing her parents dead in the middle of snowstorm. Then the family heirloom got stolen by Hanzou and being taught with many dark teachings made Ana a real cold kunoichi.
  • D-Cup Distress: When Isanami complains that her chest is small, Anastasia says that, for a kunoichi, being flat-chested was much more comfortable, but Isanami says that she should be proud of her size.
  • Forced into Evil: Zig-zagged. At first, Ana really was forced to do nefarious things by Hanzou against her will because that's the only way to retrieve her family heirloom. His dark teachings, however, influenced her enough that Ana didn't feel forced in being evil. However, Jinpachi can still sense she still feels kind of forced deep down.
  • Good Bad Girl: More so in the manga than in the anime.
  • Heel–Face Turn: The only one of Hanzou's five to be spared (because the one who fought her has hots on her), and once she learns that the heirloom that Hanzou used to make her do his biddings was fake, she was ready to let Jinpachi kill her, but eventually accepts to become his companion.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: Comes with being An Ice Person.
  • McNinja
  • The Mole
  • Ms. Fanservice: Voiced by Yuu Asakawa no less.
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Sensual Slavs
  • She Is All Grown Up: In the manga, Saizo was amazed to see a golden-haired beauty bathing in a mountain stream and initially thought she was a spirit. Even when two thugs tackled her and started groping her, all he could do was ogle her and pinch back his nose-bleed. During the fight, he was totally surprised to find out that she's his childhood friend Ana.
  • Stripperiffic: Her clothes are already skimpy, and she likes not to wear them.

Yuri Kamanosuke

Voiced by: Motoki Takagi

Miyoshi Seikai Nyudo

Voiced by: Kazunari Tanaka

  • Badass and Child Duo: He and Benmaru are seen often together, with the latter usually riding in the former's shoulder, and while Benmaru is a capable fighter, Seikai is usually the one that does most of the damage.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Can cause small earthquakes. Is also considered the Brave that controls Earth.
  • Rated M for Manly: Sasuke tries to cut him with one of his kunais. He blocks with it PURE MUSCLE.
  • Super Strength: The aftershock of one of his techniques is enough to carve holes in a wall. A wall that was really far away from him. He is also capable of creating earthquakes.
  • Warrior Monk
  • Wham Line: He's Isanami's elder brother. Not the biological one, but still, it's pretty shocking.
  • The Worf Effect: Was knocked out effortlessly by Jinpachi to set Jinpachi's power level. Also, he could barely harm Byakugun for most of their fight.

Nezu Jinpachi

Voiced by: Kazuya Nakai

  • Only In It For The Hottie: Agreed to help Juuzou and eventually join Yukimura so that he could meet a certain big-busted blonde. And it's true. Once he's gets to know and is done redeeming Anastasia, he just stops sticking with the Braves.
