Fuuma Kotaro

Cruel, pale ninja master of the Hojo Clan.


A tall, lanky man with greasy, shoulder-length hair, pale skin, and white face paint. His mannerisms are reminiscent of a badly-stringed puppet, jerky and stiff. When he moves, it’s as though he appears in various places along his route without traversing the intervening space, like a poor stop-motion animation.


The ninja master of the Hojo Clan, Fuuma Kotaro was behind the kidnapping of Gouta’s Mother. He continued to antagonize the players during their advance West. also dispatching the ninja who bombed Edo Castle.

Kotaro’s powers stem from the same source as Yamada Junko‘s, that of Nemesis, the opposite force of Ki. The two ninja masters met at one point, but he was unable to keep up with Junko’s superior speed, and gave up the chase.

Fuuma Kotaro died at Odawara Castle when, while attacking Nakamura Eiichi, he was slain from behind by Tsukahara Bokuden.
