Marubasu is a minor character from the Kishin Douji Zenki series.

He is a middle aged human man with short, white hair and black eyes.
He wears red clothes, silver boots and a purple cape with silver shoulder plates.

Marubasu is an antagonist of the Inugami or Dog Deity ark, though depending on his incarnation, his role greatly differs.

While his original ingame appearance features him as a major villain and the game's final boss, who drives the game's whole plot, his manga appearance reduces him to a mere oneshot villain.


Marubasu is a character exclusive to Vajura Fight and the manga.
This means that he doesn't appear in the anime or any other
Kishin Douji Zenki games
besides the aforementioned one.

Vajura Fight (Ingame)

Marubasu is first introduced in the PC-FX game Kishin Douji Zenki FX - Vajura Fight.

Ingame, Marubasu is the main villain and leader of a organization which tries to surpass the Inugami Roh and his Shitennou.

Throughout the game, Marubasu makes various minor appearances. The very beginning of the game has Marubasu trapping Zenki and Chiaki in an alternate reality, similar to the plot token, used by the Jushi (aka "Curse Samurai") in the earlier Jushi ark.

To escape the alternate reality and free Japan, Zenki and Chiaki need to defeat Marubasu and his henchmen, though they weren't the only ones trapped in there, as they also encounter the Inugami Roh, his faithful dog Kokutei and Hiki the Black Tortoise.

Occasionally, Zenki and Chiaki meet Marubasu, who constantly keeps mocking them and challenges them to continue his little game to face him in the end, so he can take them down by himself.

Once Zenki and Chiaki reach Marubasu, the latter's weapon of choice is a katana, which he impressively uses to perform the skills of a true master swordsman, posing a great threat to both the Demon God and his human master.

Marubasu's impressive sword skills, great speed, abilty to fly, use of a katana and ability to shoot energy slashes with the aforementioned katana, give him similarities to the Shitennou's Chimaru, though that's were their similarities end as Marubasu is neither a member of the Shitennou nor a vampire.

Once Demon God Zenki has defeated Marubasu, the latter's dead body just lies there on the ground. Zenki and Chiaki are returned to the shrine from the beginning of the game in the real world.

Afterwards, Chiaki pities Marubasu and walks towards the latter, despite Zenki telling her to be careful. Chiaki brushes this off, thinking that Zenki is kidding her and advances regardless. At that moment Marubasu's human corpse turns out to be a costume. He isn't dead. A slimy centipede-like beastman rises, leaving the torn up costume behing and captures Chiaki. This causes Zenki to let out a shocked, gasp-like "Chiaki!", while Marubasu holds Chiaki over his head like a trophy, celebrating his triumph over Zenki and Chiaki despite what previously seemed like his certain defeat.

Shortly afterwards, Roh and Kokutei make a swift entrance, teleporting themselves right behind, the now monstrous, Marubasu. Roh isn't impressed and shoots a laser beam from his palm, straight through Marubasu's heart. This instantly kills Marubasu for real and frees Chiaki.

Afterwards, Roh takes the Hyouinomi, which Marubasu left behind for himself, feeds it to Kokutei and pets him. Zenki is obviously furious at Roh for snatching away the delicious Hyouinomi and starts and arguement with the still unimpressed Inugami.

The Inugami mocks Zenki, who responds by using the Vajura Beam Exorcirsm, but failing when Roh easily counters this with a gust-like barrier.

Roh and Kokutei leave the scene, leaving behind Zenki, who curses at Roh, angrily shaking his fist and Chiaki wondering if that's the last they saw of the Inugami. Cue, the ending credits rolling.

Marubasu's fighting skills

Marubasu is an excellent swordsman who wields a katana. He can strike very quickly and cut down his foes at ease. This makes fighting him very difficult for Zenki and Chiaki, who will quickly get caught in a barrage of slicing attacks, being severely wounded.

Though this doesn't only count for his sword strikes, as Marubasu is also able to use magic and psychic attacks. He can levitate in mid-air and catch his foes in a psychic sphere, making them unable to move and then either sends them into the atmosphere, causing them to crash back down with great force or slices them in mid-air. Sometimes, he also throws them into a wall by shooting a large, purple magic sphere at his foes. Ingame, these attacks also cause a high anmount of damage.

Despite his bulky appearance, Marubasu can move extremely fast. He also has a very similar fighting stile to Chimaru. The combination of his use of magical attacks, psychic attacks and his katana, make Marubasu a very threatening foe.

Manga (Volume 8)

In the manga, Marubasu is first seen outside the flight of stairs at the bottom of the mountain, where the Enno Shrine is located.

He is presented alongside three other men and threatens a group of visitors. Then he punches an innocent man, shocking the two women alongside him.

Anju runs down the stairs and notices the violence done to the Enno Shrine's customers. She decides that she has to tell Chiaki about it, but has to retreat for now.

Soon enough, the men who accompanied Marubasu congratulate him for his boldness, though their master comes along and notices this. The master decides he should apologize for his students' miserable behaviour.

After awhile, the scene cuts to the master and his students visiting the Enno Shrine while Chiaki and Chibi Zenki have one of their usual arguements.

One of Marubasu's collegues leers at Chiaki and openly threatens her, which obviously enrages her. Soon, the master is seen throwing himself onto the floor and begging grandmother Saki for forgiveness.

After this, we see Chiaki throwing out the pervert, who leered at her earlier. The man crosses his arms in disapproval and sits there. Then Chibi Zenki walks by and the pervert makes fun of his small size, which causes Zenki to get furious and attack him, though Marubasu also enters the scene and punches the little Kishin in the chest, sending him flying and crashing into a wall.

Chiaki just can't stand this. Now she has to get the wall repaired, because some pervert insulted Zenki and Marubasu used the little guy to break the wall...

When Marubasu mocks her, the master comes along and orders Marubasu and the perverted man to come with him. Chiaki blows a raspberry at them and picks her eyelid, while Chibi Zenki yells at them "that he will get them for what they've done to him, after all he's the strongest Kishin!"

Marubasu's motives?

Ingame

While Marubasu's actual ingame motives are still unknown, as the game featuring him has yet to be translated into English, he is a very ruthless character who manipulates others to his favor.

Though it is likely that Marubasu is just another villain taking clues from Shijura, who just aims at topping Ozunu Enno by killing Zenki and Chiaki to prove his superiority as a magician/priest.

Manga

The manga has him as just as a ruthless and manipulative character, though in the manga Marubasu is more like some random mugger that tries to force his religious beliefs onto random strangers by beating them until they do what he wants.

He does this in front of the Enno Shrine's staircase, trying to beat up Chiaki's customers to prevent them from ever taking on her services.

When Chibi Zenki notices this and tries to stop Marubasu, he punches the little Chibi in the chest, sending him flying. Grandmother Saki doesn't tolerate this and bans Marubasu from the Enno Shrine's grounds, but at night, Marubasu and a fellow mugger steal a Hyouinomi, which possesses Marubasu and later turns him into a centipede-like beastman.


Trivia

  • Marubasu looks very similar to the Street Fighter series' M. Bison, sans the hat.
    • Also just like M. Bison, Marubasu can levitate and fly around the arena and hits very hard.
    • Unlike M. Bison he is very fast and his attacks can't be blocked. This makes him a very tough opponent which might cost the player a few lives, especially if they are playing as Chiaki. This is because Chiaki is slower and less agile than Zenki.
  • Similar to the Crazy Monks from Battle Raiden, Marubasu first appears ingame before being adopted later on in the manga.
