    The Miroku 7 

Voiced by: Tomokazu Seki (Japanese, Natsuhiko), Akiko Kimura (Japanese, Yukihiko); Michael Morgen (English, both)

The childhood friend(s) of Ban. They're really seven siblings in one body (in the anime it's only two); the first one seems to have been Natsuhiko. The others include Hikage, Ukyou, Tsubaki, Tokisada, Yukihiko, and lone female Kirara. When they switch, their appearance changes slightly. They were led to believe that Ban killed their sister Eris, which made them become out for his blood. He did kill her, but in self-defense; she was being controlled by the Black Strings at the time.

The kicker is, she wasn't even their sister but their arranged-marriage bride-to-be. The seven siblings are actually only facets of a single person, who would merge into one upon reaching adulthood - merge into Yukihiko's "body", such as it is (but shh, they don't know that).

Their father, real older sister, and older brother were Drei Ritter/The Three Knights, guardians of Ban's father der Kaiser.

The image is of Natsuhiko Miroku.

  • Adapted Out: All but Natsuhiko and Yukihiko in the anime.
  • All Your Powers Combined: In their final confrontation with Ginji, all seven Miroku merge together into Yukihiko, who then has full access to their particular talents and abilities.
  • Ax-Crazy: Ukyou
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Yukihiko is easily the most dangerous.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Pulls this to save Emishi from the Ura-Fuuchouinn.
  • Blade on a Stick: Kirara
  • Blind Weaponmaster: Hikage
  • Confusion Fu: Ukyou who jumps around like an acrobat and wields a weird scimitar that's immune to electricity. In fact, the overall fighting style of the Seven could be called this. They fight by switching between personalities, bodies, and fighting styles in the middle of battle, changing things up on the fly so that if an opponent adapts to one of them, they simply switch to another to throw him off.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Ukyou apparently, upon learning that Ginji would be one of their opponents, took the opportunity to switch to a weapon made from a nonconductive substance.
  • Fragile Speedster: Kirara
  • Gender Bender: Kirara especially when you consider that "she" is a facet of Yukihiko's personality
  • Healing Factor: A weird variant where if one sibling takes a lot of damage then another taps in with none of the previous damage, while the damage taken by the previous one is released when they re-manifest.
  • Iaijutsu Practitioner: Hikage.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: All over the place as Natsuhiko wields a katana, but then there's Hikage who has a tsurugi, Tokisada has a nodachi, and Ukyou has a scimitar.
  • Last of His Kind: The Drei Ritter died a long time ago serving Der Kaiser against the Voodoo King. With the unification of the seven personalities, Yukihiko is the last person of the Miroku bloodline.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Natsuhiko who is as fast as Kirara but as strong as Tokisada.
  • Literal Split Personality: Ginji describes the siblings as not simply being Disassociate Identity Disorder, but that are literally seven different people in one body (best exemplified with how the body changes according to the personality in charge). This is exemplified during the final arc where all seven personalities manifest into separate bodies.
  • Walking Armory: They carry around a huge bag in order to carry all their weapons.

     Der Henker 
The first opponents that Ban and Co. face in the Underground Tournament Arc, all of them wear cloaks and masks
