    open/close all folders 


Active members of Kamigari that are directly working with Yamato Takeru.

    Otohime Yamato 

Otohime "The Manipulator" Yamato is Ouken's granddaughter and a first year student at Tenbi Academy. Her ability is Doll House which allows her to fashion a voodoo doll to manipulate her opponent. Because of her petite appearance, she is mistaken for being younger than her high school age by Haruko. She performs experiments where she manipulates some creatures and people with a chemical that is similar to Ouken's Soul Collector ability. She is one of the four Shishigami who serves Ouken. Also in the beginning Takeru, Inaho, and herself were the only three that couldn't get a reading of their Maken.

    Miyabi Ootori 

Miyabi Ootori

Ouken's secretary, who handles the Kamigari's administrative affairs. Within the group, she seems to have some degree of authority over his grandchildren, as they have to get clearance from her in order to speak with him. Miyabi's devotion stems from her desire to be with Ouken and can sometimes be seen lusting after him. Her feelings were unrequited and, following his death, Otohime is clearly shown being above her.

  • Absolute Cleavage: Her rack is as big as Aki's, so her blouse and blazer are always open displaying her cleavage.
  • Christmas Cake: She's not bad looking, but she's no spring chicken either. Just don't say it to her face.
  • Combat Stilettos: Literally, since her Maken is sealed in her right shoe and its special ability ("Big Eater") is executed with kicks.
  • Cross-Popping Veins: Seen anytime someone calls her an "old lady".
  • Gag Boobs: Aki struck a nerve by telling her she shouldn't force herself to wear a smaller bra, to push up her breasts. Implying that Miyabi's breasts are sagging. Ouch.
  • Her Heart Will Go On: Subverted. After Ouken's death, she seemingly shifts her affections to Takeru Yamato, but reveals she knew it was him the entire time and makes it clear that her feelings haven't changed in the midst of her rant.
  • Ignored Enamored Underling: Had Ouken given her half a chance, she would've given it up to him in a heartbeat. But he liked 'em young and had an entire harem to fulfill his needs.
  • It's Personal:
    • Whatever her reasons are, Miyabi doesn't like Aki and spent most of her time either attacking her, or simply belittling her, 'cuz Miyabi had lost her shit.
    • But that pales in comparison to her reaction to Ouken's death. Himegami barely had time enough to save Takeru and Leo from being decapitated.
  • Kick Chick: In what little of her fight with Aki that was shown, Miyabi favored the use of kicks; including thrusting her leg out in front of Aki, to prevent her from treating Minori.
  • Sexy Secretary: Averted. Miyabi has a nice figure, but no one finds her appealing due to her age and constant brown-nosing.
  • Sleeps with Everyone but You: She wishes she could be one of them, but doesn't mind watching Ouken sleep with other women. It turned her on so much, that she got off from it.
  • Smug Snake: As long as Ouken's winning, that is. But if it even looks like he's losing...
  • This Cannot Be!: ...she ends up beside herself in disbelief. Which was short-lived since he recovered and defeated Minori soon afterward.
  • Villainous Breakdown: She never would've imagined anyone could defeat Ouken, much less, kill him.... until it happened. It took moments for it to sink in, but once it did, she went ballistic.
  • We Will Meet Again: Despite her outrage over Ouken's death, she knew she was outmatched and requested an emergency transport spell. Before she departed, she made it clear that it'd become personal and that there'd be hell to pay, then vanished with what was left of Gouken's corpse.
  • Women Prefer Strong Men: Because she can't stop talking about him. In some cases, she'll be seen blushing. And after watching him bang a group of his concubines, she was so aroused by him that she was wet.



A member of Kamigari who's objective was to hinder Takeru Oyama from merging with Kumado. He is partnered with Serin.

  • Adaptive Ability: As a clone of Yamato Takeru, Idaten is an extremely quick learner, both mentally and biologically; at his first appearance he's kind of scrawny, but he gradually becomes ridiculously muscular, enough so that he's almost unrecognizable besides his face.
  • Affably Evil: To the point of subtly trying to help the Tenbi students, such as when he pretends not to notice Yan-Min's arrival in chapter 85. Nor does he warn Jigoku that he was about to be attacked, and is seen whistling innocently when Yan-Min kicks him.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: With Takeru, during the face-off against Yamato in chapter 103. And once Haruko joins the fray, they triple team him in an epic No-Holds-Barred Beatdown!
  • Berserk Button: Idaten's a Nice Guy, but there's two things he can't stand:
    • As explained to Gen and Akaya, he hates it when his opponent holds back against him because he considers halfassed and an insult. He lets them off with a warning not to do it again.
    • But he'll spare no mercy for anyone if he even thinks they've hurt Serin, which causes him to attack Takeru, Haruko, and Himegami in chapter 98.
  • Best Her to Bed Her: Idaten is a gender inverted example. In chapter 116, Crimson Calamity becomes sexually aroused by him after seeing his strength and openly declares her intention to wed him. Idaten bluntly refuses:
    Idaten: (matter-of-factly) "I don't know what you're playing at, but I have no intention of marrying you. If you want me, you'll have to do it by force."
    Crimson calamity: (excited) "I KNEW IT! You and I are meant to be together! We think alike! ♥"
  • Blood Knight: Loves a good fight and actively searches for new adversaries to test his strength against. He was even willing to wait until Takeru had finished merging with Kumado to fight with them but was reminded by Serin that screw up's weren't going to be tolerated.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Is always seen yelling and shouting before his fights and brags about himself in first person when he's found a worthy challenge.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Delivered and received one in the span of two chapters.
    • He was able to effortlessly beat both Akaya and Gen (though the former did admit to holding back his trump card).
    • Zigzagged during his fight with Yan-Min. She initially had the upper hand, but he quickly turned the tables on her due to his Maken having the "Evolve Gene" as well. By the time of their rematch in chapter 86, she gains the upperhand again thanks to her "Reilei" evolving into "Bai-Lei".
    • He falls victim to this once again, courtesy of Takeru who had just came back from inheriting his family's Maken which gave him enough power to knock Idaten's lights out with a single strike.
  • Declaration of Protection: Towards Serin. In chapters 98 and 99, he viciously assaults Takeru, Haruko, and Himegami for thinking they were responsible for Seirin's injuries. Twice during the ensuing battle, Idaten expresses concern for her well-being and vows to keep her safe from harm, even if it means his own death.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Neither he nor Serin were expecting Yan-Min to show up and send the former flying miles away with a drop kick.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: It happens to him twice during his battle with Haruko and Love Espada (chapter 98).
    • First Espada distracts him by lifting the back of her skirt to give him a peek at the thong she's wearing and her buttocks. Idaten averts his gaze, but isn't quick enough to avoid getting an eyeful first, which causes him to blush indignantly.
    • Then she launches herself at his face crotch first and starts drooling as he struggles to pry his head from between her thighs. Haruko uses the opportunity to power up with a Magatama and unleashes Kusanagi.
    • Averted during his fight with Crimson Calamity; her attempts at seducing him only infuriate him because he thinks she's not taking him seriously. This ultimately fuels the fire that leads to Idaten snapping and drawing more Maken past his limit.
      Idaten: Stop joking with me! Why are you talking about nonsense like "seeds" and marriage during our one-on-one duel?!
  • Facepalm: He does one in contempt towards Jigoku in chapter 82, after listening to his misogynistic rant.
  • The Gift: Because he was just born recently and is a clone of Yamato Takeru, Idaten possess the power of "evolution" which allows him to rapidly improve his own skills while fighting.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Idaten turns on Yamato after Tesshin tells him the truth about who tried to kill Serin and asks Idaten to lend the Tenbi students his strength.
  • Honor Before Reason: Though he does work for Kamigari, he thought it would be too underhanded of him to attack Takeru while he was defenseless and wanted to wait for him to finish before fighting him.
  • Insult Backfire: Most women would take offense to being called lewd, but Espada assumes Idaten's talking dirty to her, so she becomes horny instead.
  • Large Ham: Speaks in a loud and abrasive tone almost all of the time, even after he's gotten his ass kicked.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Idaten was fast enough to take both Gen and Akaya by surprise and knock both of them out in mere seconds. And after his Maken evolves, he becomes fast enough to momentarily surpass Yan-Min's speed.
  • Made of Iron: During his first clash with Yan-Min, he survives having his insides fried by her Lei-Quan technique, then flashes a grin before swatting her hand aside.
  • Manly Tears: Suffering such a crushing defeat from Takeru, who had just attained Kamudo, left him crestfallen and in tears. Serin tries to console him by reminding him they were facing "monsters"note , despite their own relative inexperience.
  • Maybe Ever After: It isn't said whether Crimson has succeeded in defeating Idaten, but she's determined to try. They end up living together on their own private island where they battle each other everyday at noon and both seem eager to clash.
  • Oh, Crap!: His reaction upon seeing Yan-Min imbued with "White Element" and coming at him as a burst of lightning. She proceeds to curbstomp him with it, along with Jigoku and Serin.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Idaten spends chapters 89-95 battling the spirits guarding the Ama no Iwato seal off-panel. When he finally emerges from the cave, he admits he only defeated a few of them before being forced to concede. This makes him the only other person besides Minorinote  to ever make the attempt.
  • One-Man Army: Chapter 98 begins with him taking on Takeru, Haruko, Himegami, Usui, and Love Espada, for believing they were responsible for wounding Serin. Since he refuses to hear them out, Haruko and Espada volunteer to hold him off, while the others raced toward the summit to save Ms. Aki.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Much like Gouken, before him, Idaten wouldn't seem villainous at all if he weren't allied with Kamigari. He's even gone so far as to help the Tenbi students on at least two occasions, by his inaction.
  • Sealed in a Person-Shaped Can: In chapter 100, Tesshin reveals the secret of Idaten's exceptional fighting ability. It's because Yamato created him by infusing him with the spirit of Minori's father.
  • Skilled, but Naïve: While Idaten possesses skills that can match S rank and above ability users, his lack of experience due to just recently being born keep him from being a much greater threat and he makes clumsy mistakes.
  • Spear Counterpart: To Yan-Min. Both have their pride, they excel at speed, and each possesses the "evolve" gene, which improves their combat ability during battle.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Looks almost identical to another one of Yamato Takeru's clone's, Gouken, but is noticeably taller and more muscular.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: According to Akaya, he's also a clone of Yamato Takeru.
  • Tranquil Fury: Seen when he confronts Yamato about having Serin attacked. Idaten stands within an inch of him and tells him he intends to make him answer for it, before unleashing a swift kick to Yamato's chin.
  • Villainous Valour: Despite being hopelessly outmatched against Yan-Min's "Bai-Liei" form, he was determined to act as Takeru Yamato's shield, even though it meant having to face her alonenote .
  • Worthy Opponent: Certainly sees Takeru as one even before he fought him just based on the fact that Takeru was able to go toe to toe with Yamato Takeru.



A member of Kamigami who's objective was to hinder Takeru Oyama from merging with Kumado. She is partnered with Idaten.

  • Amusing Injuries: Most of her clothing gets burned off, leaving her body singed after Yan-Min fries her. But her expression is comical, rather than pained.
  • Blood from the Mouth: As a result of Jigoku ramming his fist through her body. When Haruko and the others find her, she's bleeding from the corner of her mouth and clutching the wound in her midsection.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Unlike her partner who's more than willing to go against his orders just to get a good fight, Serin doesn't like to fool around and follows her orders to the letter. She was also sensible enough to attack both Yan-Min and Haruko when the two of them were still talking after the former had drop kicked Idaten miles away and let her guard down.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Neither she nor Idaten were expecting Yan-Min to show up and send the latter flying miles away with a drop kick.
  • Dumb Blonde: Averted. She may be blonde, but she is certainly not dumb as she's fully capable of making rational decisions and acts as the brains when partnered with Idaten.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Each time she's tried an attack, it's been easily avoided or countered, even when she's had the element of surprise. Her latest attempt was against Yan-Min, whose back was turned. Yet, she still sensed the attack and vanished right in front of her, then fried Serin from behind a split-second afterward; defeating her instantly.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: During the final clash with Tenbi, Serin is moved by the Tenbi students' kindness and secretly wishes she and Idaten could join them. She gets her wish in the final chapter which shows she's now happily enrolled at their school.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Is able to fire from a tree that's at least several miles away and always hit her mark.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Her apparent Maken or ability is the power to "shoot" her nails as if they were bullets.
  • Just Friends: With Idaten. When Crimson calamity asks Serin if she has any romantic feelings for him, Serin's response is: "Hell no!"
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: After having two of her strongest attacks deflected by both Takeru and Takeshi while also witnessing Idaten getting pummeled, she decided to call it quits and escaped after grabbing her defeated partner.
  • Lecherous Licking: Her opening scene involves her seductively sucking on a lollipop.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Just look at her above picture, she's well endowed, has a dynamite body, and clearly doesn't care about being modest as her legs are wide open with a full shot of her thong.
  • Nothing Personal: Says something along these lines as she shoots Haruko who was busy fighting against Idaten at the same time. She has no quarrels against Tenbi, she's just doing her job.
  • Not Quite Dead: The final scene of chapter 97 reveals she survived Jigoku's murder attempt, though she was left gravely injured by it. Himegami has Nozuichi restrain her long enough for Haruko to use a healing art on her in the following chapter.
  • Oh, Crap!: Seeing Yan-Min activate her Maken and the sheer power from it caused this reaction from her as she feared for Idaten's life.
    Serin: That guy... he might just die for real.
    • Has another noticeable one when Haruko unlocks her Murakumo and proceeds to unleash a kilometer wide blast aimed directly at her.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: So far, her role's been relegated to fanservice and gag bits; including when Yan-Min fries her. It singes most of her clothing off, leaving Serin with a cartoonish dazed expression.
  • Power Nullifier: Being a clone of Yamato Takeru, she shares the ability to nullify element based attacks with her brothers and sisters. It's the only logical explanation as to how she was able to tank Haruko's signature attack when releasing Murakumo.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Like Idaten, she isn't really evil. In her internal monologue in chapter 98, she admits that she wishes she and Idaten had been able to attend highschool with people like Haruko and her friends.
  • Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: During chapter 91, Yamato Takeru orders her to fire on the residents fleeing Tenbi's infirmary, but Serin hesitates when she sees there are children and elderly among them. Yamato repeats the order, prompting Serin to tell him to shut up and reveal she's always hated him, knowing he would kill her for it. Jigoku beats him to it by shoving his arm though her torso, then tosses her body over the cliff.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Apparently has no qualms with spreading her legs wide open as she sits on a tree, exposing her underwear.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: Like Idaten, she is also a clone of Yamato Takeru.


Former members who have either been killed/defeated in battle or have defected from Kamigari.

    Hakuto Kirishima 
Hakuto, "the Phantom" was one of the four Shishigami who served directly under Ouken Yamato. He tried to pass himself off as a botanist to gain the Maken-ki's trust, but his deception was all too apparent. His real goal was to capture Himegami in order to gain Ouken's favor. It was a decision that lead to his undoing.
  • Bishōnen: Hakuto is blonde and effeminately handsome... until he transforms.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Few are capable of matching Himegami in combat with any hope of winning. Hakuto, deluded himself into thinking he was one of them and tried facing her alone. He was wrong.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Hakuto cursed his own weakness and desired strength to be of use to Ouken. So he submitted himself to Otohime's experiments, which infused him with a portion of Ouken's "Black" Element. He believed he had obtained absolute power, until it proved insufficient to even defeat Leo; much less, Himegami.
  • It's Personal: Insult him all you like, but he won't stand for anyone badmouthing Ouken. Simply overhearing Himegami call Ouken "weak" was enough to make him go against orders to capture her and tried to kill her instead.
  • Put on a Bus to Hell: Hakuto was last seen tied to a tree after his defeat. It's unknown what became of him afterward.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: His attire is essentially a butler's uniform, complete with a monocle, white gloves, and coattails
  • Stealth Hi/Bye:True to his moniker, he can suddenly appear and vanish just as quickly in a cloud of mist, as if he were a phantom.
  • Straight Gay: It isn't apparent until he starts monologuing about Ouken and his vision. At which point, the look in his eye and the accompanying blush makes it blatantly obvious.
  • Super Speed: According to Leo, Hakuto's "Mist Legs" ability allowed him to move faster than the speed of sound. Which made him difficult for Leo to hit, even with his fastest attack (Raiga).
  • Villain Ball:
    • Hakuto allowed his personal feelings for Ouken to cloud his judgement, by attempting to kill Himegami when Ouken specifically said she was to be taken alive.
    • More egregious, was thinking he could pull it off on his own; completely failing to realize how severely he was outmatched, or that she was toying with him the entire time.
  • Would Harm A Child: He had no reservations attacking Kinnua, or endangering her father's life, as part of an elaborate attempt to gain Ouken's praise.

    Tesshin Kushiya

Tesshin "The Fatal Hand" Kushiya is a member of the Shishigami and is Inaho's foster father. Years of training with only his fists have resulted in fighting ability surpassing even S-rank Maken users. It's even thought that he may be Ouken's equal. Takeru harbors deep animosity towards him, because he holds Tesshin responsible for "killing" his mother (Atsuma) 10 years ago.

  • Abusive Parent: He raised Inaho as a Tyke-Bomb. The effect of Tesshin's parenting is obvious in her fighting skills.
  • Anger Born of Worry: In chapter 46, he tells Takeru why he began abusing Inaho. It was because he feared she'd leave him after finding out she had friends.
  • An Offer You Can't Refuse: Tesshin had been prepared to confront Takeru Yamato, whatever the outcome may be, but he hadn't anticipated Yuuka following him. Which was a decision that would've cost her her life, had Takeru Yamato not agreed to spare her on the condition that Tesshin reaffirm his loyalty to him.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: Tesshin is one of the few known ability users who doesn't have a Maken, nor does he need one. His fighting ability and his Element level are so exceptional that he's canonically stated to be capable of defeating even S-rank Maken users - with only his fists!
  • Disappears into Light: At the moment of his death, his body cracks and dissipates into shards of light.
  • Dueling Scar: During his fight with Atsuma, she headbutted him hard enough to leave a deep wound; resulting in the "X" shaped scar on his forehead.
  • Expy: He appears to be a mesh between Akuma and Mukai, in terms of design; having the former's hairstyle and the latter's grey skintone.
  • Face Death with Dignity: After shielding Inaho from Idaten's attacks using his remaining life force, Tesshin is content about dying in peace.
  • Go Out with a Smile: In his final moments, he smiles and rustles Inaho's hair like he used to when she was a child. It lasts long enough for him to see her smile, before his body dissipates right in front of her.
  • Heel Realization: The reason he and Atsuma fought, is because he tried to take back custody of Inaho by force. When Atsuma denied him, Tesshin became furious and attacked her. Despite winning the fight, it made him realize he hadn't changed. So he left Inaho in her care.
  • Hermit Guru: Tesshin lived in seclusion in a sealed cave on Okino Island, where he meditated and honed his skill daily.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: After being mortally wounded during his battle with Yamato Takeru, Tesshin uses his remaining life-force to rush to Inaho's aid and arrives in time to shield her from one of Idaten's attacks. It seals his fate, but he dies without regret, having seen his daughter's smile one last time.
  • "Instant Death" Radius: Tesshin's aura is so imposing, that it paralyzed Takeru with fear several times during their battle, as he could sense that getting anywhere near him meant certain death.
    • Even Minori of all characters was helpless against Tesshin's killing intent when the former tried to help Hai who had been captured by Yamato Takeru.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his cruelty towards Inaho, there was no denying he loved his daughter. Which was clearly apparent to Atsuma as well.
  • The Lost Lenore: Though they only ever met once, Tesshin never forgot Atsuma and the humbling she gave him despite having lost. It left such a lasting impression on him, that he desired to possess her strength.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • Near the end of their fight, Tesshin assumed Atsuma couldn't continue, due to her condition. He was wrong. By his own admission, it was the first time in his life that he had ever been afraid.
    • Also seen when Takeru Yamato closes in on Yuuka with a single step, despite her speed. Which causes Tesshin's eyes to widen in alarm, as it was evident she couldn't escape him and was certain to die.
  • Reality Ensues: Tesshin was eventually arrested for child abuse and was denied visitation rights, until Ouken pulled strings to have him released early.
  • Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: Otohime has Love Espada kill him at the beginning of chapter 65, for loaning his power to Takeru.
  • To Be a Master: His encounter with Atsuma was such a humbling experience, that he dedicated his life to trying to emulate and ultimately perfect her punch, as she had. But he realized no matter how strong he became, his was only a pale imitation. Because Atsuma used her fists to protect, whereas he used his to destroy.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Ouken Yamato had him imprisoned for chlld abuse. Then arranged to have him released and told him where to find Inaho, in exchange for his loyalty. Tesshin surmised that Ouken did it so he'd eliminate Atsuma for him, because Ouken considered her a threat. But he failed to realize it until years afterwards.
  • The Worf Effect: The manga uses Tesshin to establish Love Espada's immense prowess by having her kill him effortlessly, in mere seconds.
    • Chapter 79 reveals he survived somehow, though the how is left unexplained.
  • You Killed My Mother: Tesshin killed Atsuma in front of Takeru. Or so the latter thinks...

A newly created childlike Yamato Clone, who attacked the student infirmary at Tenbi. Her Maken, "Kanayago," allowed her to enlarge herself to giant form. She briefly fought with Kai, but was ultimately defeated by Demitra during the climax of chapter 93.
  • And Call Him "George"!: Zigzagged. While Gou is perfectly aware of her monstrous strength in giant form, she still holds genuine sentiment for anyone who can provide her with a challenge, no matter how briefly it lasts. She was willing to spare Kai and "keep him" as a result, on the condition he agreed to be her toy.
  • Animal Motifs: She wears a dark hoodie that has cat ears attached to it, along with a matching shirt that has a gold cat across her chest area, and a cat's collar. The way she handles her opponents is also similar to how a cat treats a toy when bored.
  • Attack of the 50ft. Whatever: Kanayago's unique ability allows Gou to increase her body to giant size.
  • Creepy Child: Gou's expression and her manner of speech are perpetually monotone. The only emotion she conveys is mild annoyance whenever Miyabi shouts at her.
  • Didn't See That Coming: She assumed Demitra wasn't a threat simply because she was smaller, until Akaya explains Demitra had been holding back. Once he gives her the order to attack, she immediately floors Gou with her Jingu's ultimate art ("Triaina"), which pierces Gou's midsection and sends her hurtling towards Amanohara like a skipping stone.
  • Emotionless Girl: She never raises her voice, even when annoyed, and the only time she cracked a smile was when Chacha tickled her.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: Despite her embarrassment, she reached inside her panties to stop Chacha from interfering in her fight with Kai.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: It's unknown whether "Triaina" killed Gou, or if the attack only knocked her unconscious, but it left a deep wound in her midriff.
  • In the Hood: Gou wears a dark hoodie that has cat ears.
  • Luminescent Blush: Combined with cute tears when she was forced to shove her hand down her panties in front of Kai, to stop Chacha from tickling her.
  • Panty Shot: Anyone standing directly below her has an unobstructed view up her skirt, as long as she's in giant form. The same is true of any panels of her seen from ground level.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: As one of the newly created Yamato Clones and her enormous size, Gou wields vast amounts of "Black" Element - enough to warrant the emergency evacuation of the infirmary at Tenbi and the surrounding neighborhood.
  • Sarcastic Devotee: She clearly doesn't like Miyabi, due to the latter constantly barking orders at her. Gou complies, but plainly tells Miyabi twice that she doesn't like being bossed around by an old lady.
  • Sizeshifter: Which is her Maken's primary function.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Gou is near identical to Himegami in appearance; including her sidetails which resemble Himegami's twintails. Both are also semi-flatchested and she's prone to pantyshots, complete with close ups of her camel toe.
  • Third-Person Person: Gou always refers to herself by name, rather than with pronouns.
  • Villainous Crush: Her dialog with Kai carried implications of having a bro-con fetish. Throughout her scuffle with Kai, she repeatedly addressed him as "Oni-chan" and said she wanted to keep him. Even after being rejected by him, she confessed that she still really liked him - right before trying to crush him beneath her fist.



A new member of the Shishigami, who aids Takeru Yamato's assault on Tenbi Academy during the Himekagura Festival. However, the others despise him for being a misogynist and only tolerate him because of their leader.

  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: In chapter 97, he begs for mercy to Yan-Min after losing his Maken and his arm and leg. She doesn't give him any.
  • An Arm and a Leg: In chapter 97 Yan-Min cuts off one arm and one leg with her lightning, leaving him to grovel on the ground, trying to plea for mercy, which she doesn't give.
  • Dirty Coward: Jigoku has no integrity, which shows when he gets curbstomped by Yan-Min during chapter 86.
    • His first thought was to double team her, when it seemed Idaten was gonna back him up. Except Idaten refused, since it wasn't 1-on-1.
    • He ends up getting help from Takeru Yamato instead, when he steals Futasura's ability and gives it to him. Jigoku immediately uses it to steal Yan-Min's right to defend herself.
    • And in chapter 97, when his Maken is broken, he tries to flee, only to end up at Yan-Min's mercy.
  • Expy: Picture Gin Ichimaru in a suit and a fedora, Jigoku is a dead ringer for him.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Unless someone says something to tick him off.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Shortly after his introduction, it becomes clear that the other Shishigami want nothing to do with him because of his misogynistic attitude towards women.
    Serin: (shuddering) I seriously don't want to be grouped with him.
    Idaten: (facepalming in disgust) Same here....
  • Groin Attack:
    • As karma for all the derogatory remarks he made about women. Yan-Min kicks him dead center and sends him flying across Tenbi's courtyard. Jigoku is seen at the far end of the resulting trench, whimpering in tears while holding his crotch.
    • And he receives another one by the Miyabi created by Kimi in chapter 97, right as he was planning to kill her.
  • Harem Seeker: Jigoku wanted godhood for himself and intended to use his power to enslave all women of his choosing; including Haruko and Love Espada. But the one he wanted most, was Yan-Min.
  • Hypocrite: He calls Idaten "a coward" for not helping him gang up on Yan-Min, yet resorts to making it so she can't fight back since it was the only way he could win.
  • I Love You Because I Can't Control You: Jigoku saw all women as being beneath him, and only fit to fulfill the sexual desires of men. So the fact that Yan-Min was both stronger than himself and had too much pride to submit to him, made him determined to break her. Yet, even after being rendered defenseless by Futasura, she told him not to touch her. It angered Jigoku enough to punch her and said he'd make her his pet once he attained godhood. But Gen managed to break Futasura, thereby releasing Yan-Min from its influence.
  • I Shall Taunt You: He has no problems taunting Yan-Min, especially after gaining access to Futasura's ability.
  • I Surrender, Suckers: Averted big time, when he tries using Yan-Min's pride against her to convince her to spare him and let him go. It didn't work.
  • Karmic Death: He dies after having his head crushed by Yan-Min, the very woman he had repeatedly mocked and physically assaulted after using Futasura to prevent her from fighting back and intended to make her his sex slave afterward.
  • Meaningful Name: "Jigoku" is the Japanese word for "Hell".
  • Oh, Crap!: The look on his face once he realizes Yan-Min is free from Futasura's influences can best be described as extreme shock.
  • Rasputinian Death: Yan-Min thoroughly humiliates him, starting by shoving the toe of her shoe in his mouth to prevent him from using his "Word Bullet" against Gen. When he realizes she can fight back again, he tries begging for mercy in an attempt to stall for time. She doesn't fall for it and proceeds to use her lightning powers dismember him and cauterize the wounds so he can't bleed out. It ends with him begging her on his knees to spare his life. She refuses, then presses her heel against the back of his head until she finally crushes his skull with enough force to crater the ground beneath him.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: The moment Gen destroys Futasura, Jigoku tries to flee because he knew he was screwed over. Yan-Min catches him before he escapes too far.
  • Smug Snake: Jigoku's pretty full of himself as long as the enemy's either defenseless, or unable to pose a threat to him.
  • The Starscream: His goal was to wait for the moment Yamato Takeru would've been distracted by fighting Takeru Oyama, then seize godhood for himself in the fracas.
  • Straw Misogynist: When he overhears Kimmi and Chacha say they'll take him on, Jigoku maligns both of them, along with all other women:
    Jigoku: (at Kimmi and Chacha) Stop ME? Don't get full of yourselves, bitches. The only use you have, is to become male [expletive]. You're an inferior breed, filthy [expletive] exposing your [expletive] is the only thing you're good at. You want to 'stop me'? Are your heads filled with maggots? Aah?!
  • Tempting Fate: Remember all the shit he pulled in the I Love You Because I Can't Control You entry and who he did it too? Suffice to say, he'll never do it again.
  • Too Dumb to Live: The fact that he honestly thought Yan-Min would spare him after all he'd done to her, or that she wouldn't see through such a blatantly obvious ploy, lands him here.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: After Yan-Min beats him up, he gains access to Futasura to steal Yan-Min's right to fight him back, and mocks her even more.
  • Villains Want Mercy: After Jigoku gets his Futasara destroyed by Gen and dismembered by Yan-Min, he begs for his life; Yan-Min just crushes his skull.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Badass?: During the confrontation in chapters 96 and 97, he makes the mistake of underestimating Kimmi, just because she's small and frail-looking. He ends up regretting it when she uses an illusion of Miyabi to create the opening Gen needed to destroy his Maken.
  • Would Hit a Girl: And how. In chapter 85 he pins Chacha and pounds her relentlessly, while berating and insulting her the entire time.
  • Your Head Asplode: Yan-Min crushes his head with her heel until it explodes in a geyser of blood.

How well does it match the trope?
