Akame Ga Kill! Wiki

Kyoukotsu was a commander of the Tenrou nation.


Kyoukotsu was a man with sleek light hair. Casually, he wore loose clothes and had his shirt unbuttoned. For battle, he wore armor.


Kyoukotsu was a cruel and twisted man. He liked to create art from human bodies, even from his own men. He was also impulsive and aggressive. Kyoukotsu was ambitious as well. He dreamed to be part of Tenrou's elite unit - the Ten Stars. He was also a creative strategist and well-planned man from transporting catapults, using his creativity to scale the wall, and used a Soil Spider Danger Beast for its benefits. He also had a short temper, as seen when he immediately stopped and attacked when Hisame provoked him.


Kyoukotsu was first introduced at the moment he learned about the lost battle on Mt. Kageboshi. Because of his anger, he killed his two men. Later, he created a cabinet from their bodies, which he showed to Yomihime.

Kyoukotsu decided to attack Soukai again. His main aim was Soukai's princess - Rinzu. Because of her well-known beauty, he wanted her to be part of his art.

On the day of his arrival, he challenged two members from Soukai Nation. He managed to slay Buaku, but Suzumaru is saved by a retreat signal from Shion, looking forward to the next round they met and want to make him serve Tenrou.

On the second day, he used his creativity and the soldier managed to scale the wall, but were thwarted by Elder's Class. His calculations of using catapults are also foiled by Shion, so he, along with Yomihime, moved to the conventional strategy, bidding time for Spider Soil to sneak through underground tunnel they dug in.

When he thought the plan was successful, he charged into the fortress only to be realize that he was trapped under Shion's strategy. Before he can retreat, however, Hisame provokes him. His sixth sense, however, ordered him to retreat after sensing Hisame's aura. Provoked again, he enraged and attacked Hisame, only to be blocked and missed all the vital spots. Eventually, Hisame manages to deal a fatal blow against him and Kyoukotsu stated that he will be watching him from hell before he was beheaded. His head is later shown to the Soukai Nation's soldiers in their victory.

His death makes the King of Tenrou summon the Ten Stars of Tenrou.
