AppearanceEdit

HaragiriHuman

Haragiri as a human

As a human, he had his long dark hair slick back and a prominent widow peak. He appeared to be middle-age man, around 40 years old. His attire consisted of a sleeveless haori over his kimono. He carried a katana sheathed away in a scabbard found on the left side of his hip. When in his monster form, his skin became darker and a third eye appeared seen on his forehead. His teeth became sharper and his hair turned lighter in color. Additionally, it appeared that his hair turned into large vines that stuck out, and several veins pulsed across his skin.

PersonalityEdit

Haragiri was a very blithe individual who was mostly concerned about improving his swordsmanship. He believed the sole purpose of the Council of Swordmasters is to improve their swordsmanship, and that anything else, such as meetings about the hero hunter Garou, were irrelevant and contract from their original mission. In exchange for his lust for power, he completely abandoned his humanity and joined the Monster Association. After becoming a mysterious being, he became very arrogant, as he believed that he could easily kill all the other members of the Council of Swordmasters, including Atomic Samurai, whom is one of the highest ranked S-Class heroes.

Kamikaze slashes Haragiri to pieces

During the meeting of the Council of Swordmasters, while Atomic Samurai was thanking the other members for their support in chasing down the "Human Monster", Garou, Haragiri interrupts Atomic Samurai and reveals that he joined the Monster Association who offered, in return for giving up his humanity, a power far beyond that which he currently possessed. He agreed and ingested a Monster Cell, turning himself into a mysterious being.

During the meeting of the Council of Swordmasters, he threatened to kill all members unless they ate one of the Monster Cells and "monsterize" themselves. He was about to kill Atomic Samurai regardless, as he was a target of the Monster Association, after giving them 3 seconds to eat one of the Monster Cells. He prepares to slash the hero's neck, but before his blade could reach the hero, Atomic Samurai had already unsheathed his sword and cut him into pieces with his Atomic Slash, ending the monster's life.[3]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Haragiri was a member of the Council of Swordmasters while human and thus had masterful and high skills in swordsmanship. His transformation into a mysterious being heightened his power, and due to his previous ability to cut faster-than-sound, it can be assumed that he was at least at the disaster level of Demon. Despite his increase in power, it was still nowhere enough to compete against the likes of Atomic Samurai.

TriviaEdit

  • "Haragiri" is similar to the word harakiri, a ritual suicide originally performed by samurai. This is probably a reference to how he let his human self die in exchange for greater power as a monster.
  • Haragiri is among the few monsters of human origin who can access their human form, the others being Gale Wind, Hellfire Flame and Surprise-Attack Plum.
