A tall and incredibly powerful martial artist who came from the countryside to Tokyo looking for a good fight. One of his signature moves is the "back attack," in which he thrusts his back against his enemies with incredible force, often sending them flying. He died against Izumi in the Shinjuku massacre. He seems to care about Takeshi, a young child who recently joined the game and admires Kaze as his "Muscle Rider" savior. On Kurono's request, he uses his points to revive Nishi. Gantz calls him "Countryside General," and later on "Muscle Rider." He has chosen to remain in the Gantz game in order to both continue testing his strength and fighting skills against more powerful enemies and to protect Takeshi. Despite his cold outlook, he does have a softer side—in fact, he wept when he thinks of how Takeshi dies at such a young age without ever having experienced love.
