Little is known of the Kempo Fighter's personality, but he is prideful of his self-proclaimed martial arts techniques. Like his friends, he has a rowdy nature and is violent towards strangers who enter his gang's territory.[1]


As a thief from the dangerous alley known as Ogre Street, the Kempo Fighter is known to attack strangers alongside his two friends. He claims that he knows mysterious Oriental martial arts.

The Kempo Fighter does a flying kick toward his opponent. According to him, it sends his opponents flying to the netherworld, implying that it's a strong attack. However, it can easily be countered if the enemy is not caught off guard.


Phantom Blood

Driving a steam car

Little is known about the Kempo Fighter, except that he is an Asian man from Ogre Street who at some point joined Robert E. O. Speedwagon's gang. He is first introduced when he, along with Speedwagon and Tattoo, ambush Jonathan Joestar during his journey to find a cure for his father's illness. Although he is prideful of his Oriental technique, Jonathan quickly defeats him with a backhand punch to the face. Noting his race, Jonathan asks if he knows of an oriental shop nearby that sells poisons.[1] After Speedwagon's defeat, the Kempo Fighter is shocked to discover that his injuries are minor, Jonathan having held back in consideration of his family.[2]

After Jonathan's battle with Dio at the Joestar Mansion, he drives Speedwagon to the hospital where Jonathan is staying via steam car, bringing Tattoo and another friend of Speedwagon's along. The Kempo Fighter also holds the cane Speedwagon requires to walk on account of his injuries during the battle; Speedwagon initially disregards the cane before falling face-first onto the ground.[3]

The Kempo Fighter appears along with the rest of Jonathan's friends to see off Jonathan and Erina as they leave for their honeymoon to America.[4]
