open/close all folders
The first of the Harusame Space Pirates encountered in the series. A drug mobster whose connections to major Bakufu officials allow him to continue his work. He comes into conflict with the Yorozuya when they look around his business in search of a missing person. His defeat leads to the Harusame allying with the Kiheitai in order to get Gintoki and Katsura's heads.
Kagura's older brother. He is the leader of the Harusame
's 7th division. He left his family after challenging his father and cutting off his left arm. Although he is almost always smiling cheerfully, he is in fact a violent fighter who lusts for blood, like the majority of the Yato clan.
- 0% Approval Rating: Bar Takasugi (who probably sees him as a means to an end), no one really likes Kamui in-series. Not his father, not his sister, not even Abuto who also openly calls him an idiot with no other goal in life than indulging in his urges.
- Aloof Big Brother: He's completely indifferent towards Kagura whom he considers weak thus uninteresting. She, in turn, cannot stand him.
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy
- Asskicking Equals Authority: He leads the 7th Harusame division, which is composed entirely of Yato, this has to apply for him to still lead it.
- Badass: One of Satoshi Hino's most badass roles.
- Badass Family: With Kagura and Umibozu, as you've probably seen above. Unfortunately, Kamui doesn't seem to care about the "family" aspect.
- Bad Boss: He is not adverse to the idea of threatening his own subordinates and has even killed one.
- Bare-Fisted Monk: Same deal as Kagura since it's his fighting style of choice.
- Big Bad Duumvirate: Has entered an alliance with Takasugi.
- Big Eater: The two times we've seen him eating imply that his appetite is as big as Kagura's.
- Blood Knight
- Chick Magnet: A mild example, but nearly all the girls of Yoshiwara took notice when he made his appearance.
- Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: According to Hosen at least, who speculates that him helping Seita reunite with Hinowa may be because he regrets abandoning his sick mother, though Kamui denies it.
- Evil Redhead
- Eyes Always Shut: Most of the time. And when he does open them...
- For the Evulz: Kamui is a violent asshole for no other reason than that he ''can'. Not even Abuto or Takasugi cause trouble as deliberately as Kamui and for the sake of it.
- Healing Factor: Comes with being from the Yato Clan.
- The Hedonist: A very dark example.
- Idiot Hair
- Ignored Epiphany: Hosen tell him that the Yato life of fighting is ultimately empty. Kamui doesn't care.
- In Love with Your Carnage: How he feels while watching Gintoki's throwdown with Hosen. Subsequently leads to...
- It's All About Me: The only thing Kamui cares about is himself and what he wants.
- Klingon Promotion: Kills Abo and takes over as the new Admiral of the Harusame.
- Knight of Cerebus: Like Takasugi, his mere presence in the story turns the situation much more serious.
- Lightning Bruiser
- Parasol of Pain: He is a Yato after all, though he tends to leave it behind in a fight despite being quite capable with it.
- Perpetual Smiler: Almost always has a smile of some kind on his face, whether it's a cheerful one or a horrifying one.
- Stepford Smiler: Not the same type as Otae but close enough.
- Slasher Smile: Whenever he's especially excited about fighting a strong opponent.
- Pet the Dog: He decides to spare Abuto after he is defeated by Kagura and even helps carry him away.
- Proud Warrior Race Guy
- Relation Ship Voice Actor: Between Kamui's voice actor, Satoshi Hino, and Kagura's, Rie Kugimiya.
- Self-Made Orphan: Tried to do this, but he only managed to cut off Umibouzo's arm.
- The Sociopath
- Spear Counterpart/Shadow Archetype: Of Kagura. He's pretty much Kagura if she were male and had fully embraced her inner vices.
- The Starscream: His response to Admiral Aho— er, Abo's treatment of his division and attempt to execute him and the rest of the division? Take over as new Admiral of the Harusame Pirates by offing him.
- Super Strength
- Would Hit a Girl: The Hyakka got no special treatment from him for being women.
- You Have Failed Me: Subverted with Abuto. He chastises him for his defeat at Kagura's hands and it seems for a second he's about to kill him... only for him to pick the injured Abuto up and carry him away, because he needs Abuto's help in dealing with more delicate matters.
A proud veteran Yato who assists, counsels and follows Kamui around.
He's not without credentials and, like all Yato, has a rather violent streak despite his apparent laid-back, collected attitude. He is about the only person Kamui considers a friend and the only one he might
listen to. He lost his left arm during the Yoshiwara Arc while stopping Kamui and Hosen from fighting.
