     K and Vice 

The master and doji of pure evil and leaders of The Evil Doji Branch.

"With Vice in my power I would never have to work again!"

A 32-year-old unemployed man who wishes to be called "The Vice Master", in his past life he was the Emperor. Note that all badass tropes associated with him will be subverted because really, would you consider this guy to be cool?

Tropes associated with K:
  • Badass Biker: Subverted, though it is a cool bike.
  • Badass Longcoat: Subverted.
    Rune: ...His name is written on the back of his coat...
  • Butt-Monkey: Both in-universe and within the fandom!
  • Catchphrase: "God Dammit"
  • Combat Pragmatist: Because of how Vice is built, K's cowardly poses are able to completely defend their combined form from most attacks.
  • Cool Bike: Where did K get it, did he just do a wheelie, is it hovering in the air? WHO CARES?!!
  • Cool Car: K or to be more precise, Emperoro Kotsutsubono's Violent Type Milk Harvest Countack: A Three Ox Powered, Flat Heavy Treaded Wheeked SUPER OX CART! It has an overwhelming presence, god dammit.
    • It is shown in chapter 16 that he has a whole collection of these super ox carts. One of them is even made by a person named Enjo Ferari.
  • Cut Lex Luthor a Check: Subverted by K, who only agrees to become Vice's master so he can quit his job.
  • Digital Bikini: In the English translation, except his speedo makes it worse.
  • The Emperor: Subverted, as he was more blindingly incompetent than outright evil.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: K worried about what his grandmother would think if he were evil.
  • Evil Is Petty: Hopes his Doji will get him out of work, and mentions that one of the major benefits of killing all but a billion people on Earth is that he won't have to wait in line as long.
  • Fan Disservice: In Icon Mode. Squick}} Oh god...
  • Future Badass: Chapter 43 shows us how K would turn out in a future caused by Yamato trying to befriend the Evil Doji and their masters. In an extremely stark contrast to his present and past selves, he rocks long hair, Cool Shades, and a Badass Arm-Fold pretty damn well! And he even apparently ditches his cowardice completely, considering that he'll make casual conversation with Yamato right before they're about to take on Dunstan!
  • Gonk: At least, compared to the rest of the cast...
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: A couple of the outfits we've seen him.
  • Laughably Evil
  • Motive Rant: Does one in chapter 12.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: He might be built like a stick, looks like a geek, and he's unemployed, but K wasn't chosen by Vice for nothing.
    • K's shortcomings actually make him the ideal master for the douji of ultimate evil, because he's emblematic of everything that is wrong with humanity.
      • Also since he is so easy to push over, Vice can literally do whatever he wants. That includes slicing his own teammates in half.
  • Put on a Bus: Was heavily injured in Chapter 26, resulting in him being covered in bandages the next day.
  • Supervillain Lair: Subverted by K and Vice; K bought a crappy apartment for them.
  • We Will Meet Again: Subverted.
    K: Look forward to the day we meet again! Though I really don't want to see you again!


Just as Ultimo is the greatest of the Good doji, Vice is the ultimate form of Evil. You can pretty much guess what his nature and personality are from that fact. His master in the present is K. It is currently unknown if, in the past, he even had a master.

His Karakuri Henge themes are turtles and demons.

Voiced by Takashi Ohara in the V comic.

Tropes associated with Vice:


     Rune Kodaira, Iruma Tomomitsu, and Jealous/Jealousy 

The doji and masters of Envy and members of The Seven Deadly Sins. Iruma was the former master, replaced by Rune very early in the series.

Rune Kodaira
"When you learn the truth, you will be mine!"

Yamato's best friend since the fifth grade. He had a rather insecure, yet empathetic personality before he met Jealous. Afterward he seems to display much more confidence, but also cruelty. His family is apparently rich, as he has a huge mansion (in Tokyo, no less). In his past life he was a princess who married Yamato, before Ultimo slaughtered her because of her status as a noble. His undying love for Yamato that has carried onto the present lets Jealousy convince him to become his master.

Voiced by Hitomi Nabatame in the V comic.

Tropes associated with Rune:


"I can see...your past and future...and the darkness, the swirling envy in your heart."

An Evil doji that embodies envy of the Seven Deadly Sins. He is the second doji Ultimo and Yamato (not to mention the reader) are introduced to, both in the past and in the present. He has a very sarcastic, angry personality behind an often stoic expression. His master was Iruma Tomomitsu, until he stabs him in the back. His new master is now Rune Kodaira, though he's been wanting Yamato for his master.

His Karakuri Henge theme is spiders.

Tropes associated with Jealousy:

Iruma Tomomitsu

"I am deeply dissapointed that you common folk, you drones, do not recognize me."

The former master of Jealousy. He's a corrupt, immoral politician. It's interesting to note, however, that he came from a poor background (at least in the past).

Tropes associated with Iruma:
  • Ambition Is Evil
  • Asshole Victim
  • Briefcase Full of Money: Iruma offered this to buy Ultimo, though he didn't plan to pay a single cent.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: It turns out that Iruma is the way he is because Jealousy used his power to draw out the negativity in Iruma's heart and drive him insane, making him a suitable master for the Doji of envy. If his original persona in feudal Japan is any indication, he used to be a pretty nice guy before that happened.
  • Fan Disservice: When he's in Icon Mode.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Jealous of the Mikado's power.
  • Handicapped Badass: After getting his senses screwed up by Sophia's Noh, he utilized Jealousy's Heart Reading Powers to work around it and actually negate the Good Doji's ultimate technique, turning the fight around in his favor.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: By Jealousy, twice.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: He wielded Jealousy's abilities with great skill to the point that he actually managed to defeat Murayama Musashi and Sophia.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: His past self used to be an intelligent, compassionate individual who wanted only to help those in need, regardless of their social class. It was Jealousy's influence that turned him into the corrupt person he is.
  • Save the Villain: In Chapter 14, Yamato saves Iruma from a repeat of what happened in Chapter 8.
  • Too Dumb to Live: It never occurs to him that his doji, the personification of Envy, might not take kindly to him trying to get the best Good Doji, or that it might try to kill him again.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Continues trying to kill Yamato after he saves him from Jealousy.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When a crowd of people is unable to recognize him, he plans on destroying the entire city.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: Him being stabbed by Jealousy.

     Sumako Miyoshi and Desir 

The master and doji of lust, and members of The Seven Deadly Sins.

Sumako Miyoshi
"Desir is everything to me. It's all your fault! It's all your fault I'm this way right now!!"

A 27-year-old elementary school teacher. Almost like Vice and K's relationship, she's prone to blushing and submitting to her doji. Unlike a lot of the other evil doji masters, she really does love and care for her doji. Despite her age, she's never had a boyfriend, (so she's most likley a virgin as well)and worries about it constantly. It's because of this that Desir picked her for a master.

Tropes associated with Miyoshi:

"Killing the enemy, eating the enemy, making them your own meal! This is what we call survival!!"
The embodiment of Lust. While he has a kind face, he seems to have a very violent personality. He seems to be very close with his master.

His Karakuri Henge theme is bunnies.

Tropes associated with Desir:

     Mizho and Palace/Paresse 

The doji and master of sloth, and members of The Seven Deadly Sins.


"Didn't I tell you? Make a wrong move and you die."

A 15-year-old goth girl. Even though she's the master of the Sloth doji, she seems to be able to take action very quickly.

Tropes associtated with Mizho:

The embodiment of Sloth. So far, he's the doji the fandom knows the least about, which only increases his popularity.

His Karakuri Henge theme is snakes.

Tropes associated with Paresse:

     Fusataro Fussa and Rage 

The doji and master of wrath, and members of the Seven Deadly Sins.

Fusataro Fussa

"I'm sorry, but I can't allow you to interfere. We will be your opponents."

A 39-year-old music producer. Ironically, he has a rather calm and laid back personality.

Tropes associated with Fussa:
  • Afro Asskicker
  • Alliterative Name
  • Badass Beard
  • Cool Shades
  • Dissonant Serenity: He greets Mizho and Parasse with a smile in Chapter 24 after they just about violently injured three guys.
    • He does get scared, however, when Mizho threatens him soon after. It's justified though.
  • The Dragon: No longer YMMV, Fussa and Rage's fight with Yamato and Ultimo is the last big battle of the series before the fight against the big bad.
    • Not including the backburnered fight between Vice and Ultimo that the series conveniently cut away from before it even happened.
  • Driven to Villainy: Musashi pulls a long speech on Fussa, revealing that the producer used to be the singer of a fairly popular band before "they" pressured him into obscurity. The injustice of 'the system' pressured him into essentially following the same path.
  • '80s Hair
    • Makes sense, considering his band, Aflodite, was a HairMetal band.
  • High Collar of Doom: Wears his shirt collar like this.
  • Odd Friendship: Despite their apparent dislike for one another in Chapter 24, Fussa, Rage, Mizho, and Paresse form a band called 'West Tokyo Incidents' together after the events of the manga, shown on a billboard in the last chapter.
  • Smoking Is Cool

"Cut the stupid chit-chat, Fussa. It's irritating. He came for a fight, so let's rumble."

The embodiment of wrath. Known for his rather unrealistic hairstyle.

His Karakuri Henge theme seems to be the bull.

Tropes associated with Rage:
  • A Load of Bull: His ICON is very Minotaur-esque
  • Badass Longcoat: Human form.
  • Berserk Button: Kind of his whole shtick.
  • The Dragon: No longer YMMV, Fussa and Rage's fight with Yamato and Ultimo is the last big battle of the series before the fight against the big bad.
    • Not including the backburnered fight between Vice and Ultimo that the series conveniently cut away from before it even happened.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Dunstan is very creative.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: Human form.
  • Hero Killer: Eco's killer before the ResetButton was hit and nearly Ultimo's downfall in late chapters.
  • Improbable Hairstyle: Doji form and his second appearance in human form.
    • Also his album is titled 'Mad Hair Paradise'...
  • Lightning Bruiser: Literally, given his noh ability to control lightning, but also the fact that he beat the Living Hell out of Ultimo in chapter 46.
    • The only reason he doesn't actually destroy Ultimo is because Jealousy interferes. Otherwise it would've been curtains for the Ultimate Good.
  • Mr. Fanservice: In-universe too; in human form he's a singer/guitarist under Fussa's management.
  • Not So Stoic: While Rage is the one to stop Paresse from killing someone in earlier chapters and generally holds a quiet, withdrawn, and under-control aire, when allowed to let loose... Well, see some things mentioned above.
  • Odd Friendship: Despite their apparent dislike for one another in Chapter 24, Fussa, Rage, Mizho, and Paresse form a band called 'West Tokyo Incidents' together after the events of the manga, shown on a billboard in the last chapter.
  • Perpetual Frowner
  • Shock and Awe
  • The Stoic: Rage has few spoken lines and usually played as a background to Fussa's more eccentric character and speeches. Though when he does speak up, it seems to be wise to take note.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Doji Form.

     Akira Hidaka and Orgullo 

The doji and master of pride, and members of The Seven Deadly Sins.

Akira Hidaka
"I will throw Agari Yamato, the greatest good master, down into hell."

An 18-year-old famous pro golfer. Calm, but manipulative, and with a streak of arrogance.

Tropes associated with Akira:
  • Ambition Is Evil: The reason why he's evil and being nice to Sayama.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: "God Reading" is implied to be the reason why he's excelled at golf without innate talent, and he believes it will help him run Sayama Sports well once he takes over.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Quite nice to Sayama and her friends as part of his facade.
  • The Chessmaster: He calls it "God Reading".
  • Romantic False Lead: Sayama seems to like him, which pisses Yamato off.
  • Take That!: May have been unintentional but... I mean he's a pro golfer who has only been seen around women so far, and he's a bad guy. It's hard not to think of that as a joke against Tiger Woods...
  • Villain with Good Publicity
    Akira: No one with a good public reputation is actually good, Orgullo. They're just charlatans skilled at making themselves look good.


As the doji of pride, Orgullo is prone to boasting about his own skills and belittling the skills of his enemies. But, this isn't a constant trait. He shows a surprising amount of respect to his master, and a surprising calmness.

His theme animal seems to be lions.

Tropes associated with Orgullo:


     Hana Koganei and Eater/Edile 

The master and doji of gluttony, and members of The Seven Deadly Sins.

Hana Koganei
"Agari Yamato...are you laughing at me cuz I'm a child?"

A five-year-old orphan who's Edile/Eater's master of the Seven Deadly Sins.

Tropes associated with Hana:


At first, he was thought to be a three story tall doji, of incredible bulk. His actually from is a short and more childish version of his bigger from. He has a bit of a reckless personality.

His theme animal is bears.

Tropes Associated with Eater:

     Kaizo Oume and Avaro 

The master and doji of greed, and members of The Seven deadly Sins.

Kaizo Oume

A 55-year-old construction company presidant. He shares the same last name as Hibari Oume, implying that the two are related.

Tropes associated with Kaizo:


A doji with a greedy and perverted personality.

His theme animal seems to be mice.

Tropes associated with Avaro:

     Replacement Masters/Allies 
Characters that have replaced any of the Evil Doji Branch's original masters, or are simply evil.

Jun Titibu

A little kid that appears in Chapter 27, who wants to be Vice's master. Three pages in however, Vice stabs him with his gauntlet. Not that it does anything though...

Tropes associated with Jun:


How well does it match the trope?
