    Other Characters 


Voiced by: Toru Okawa (Japanese), John Gremillion (English)

  • Blow You Away: Gainer's finishing moves involve generating tornadoes.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: His obsession with killing the Mimetic Beast that killed his wife causes him to mercilessly hunt every Mimetic Beast down, without regard to how much property damage or civilian casualties he causes.

  • Meaningful Name: His name means "sword" in Japanese.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: Ken is utterly obsessed with hunting down and personally slaying the Mimetic Beast that "killed" his wife.
  • Parental Substitute: For Lou it doesn't last long unfortunately
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Ken is the Blue Oni to Goh's Red Oni.
  • The Rival: to Goh and Godannar. A bit of a one-sided affair however.
  • Taking You with Me: How he kills the Mimetic Beast that "killed" his wife also doubles as a Heroic Sacrifice.
