View Full Version : Characters that carry a katana

I know this may seem like a... stupid, or obviously answered question, but there are a few reasons for it. I want to see how popular some characters are I can think of based on how many times their names come up. But I also want a new project, be it cosplay or prop building, and final, I want something new to get into, whether it be a game, anime, manga or whatever, so yeah...

What characters carry a katana?

Kenshin Himura - Ruroni Kenshin
Mitsurugi - Soul Calibur
Yoshimitsu - Soul Caliber
Kyo - Samurai Deeper Kyo
Mugen & Jin - Samurai Champloo

all i can think of off the top of my head

Various characters from Bleach..? @__@
Yamamoto or Squalo from Katekyo Hitman Reborn!

Non-anime, but O-Ren Ishii from Kill Bill.

Also, Break from Pandora Hearts has what could be a katana concealed in his cane.
...I'll think of more later.

Kanda (I think it is I haven't looked at DGM for ages)-D.Gray-man

Yamamoto- Katekyo Hitman REBORN! (Squalo doesn't his sword is attached to his hand and the blade is double edged)

Misuzu Kusakabe- 11eyes (she has 4 I think)

that's all I can think of for now sorry

Off the top of my head...

Zoro - one piece
Jin - Blazblue
Yomi - Ga-Rei:Zero
Raimei and Raikou - Nabari no Ou
Naoto - DOGS: Bullets and Carnage

Plus pretty much anyone from Hakuouki or Peacemaker Kurogane.

Vicious from Cowboy Bebop
Raidei the Blade (I think that's his name) from Trigun
Kadaj from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children
Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII
Kurogane from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles
Err, one of the girls from Love Hina. Can't remember her name, though. ><;

Keith Valentine - Shadow Hearts (1). His weapon is swords, but I bet he could weild katana's (I haven't played the 1st Shadow Hearts in a while to be exactly sure.)

Karin Koenig - Shadow Hearts 2. She has different kinds of swords, but I'm not really sure if they are katana's but hey, they are swords. Lol. =P They are actually more thin than katana's but I can't think of what they are exactly. ^.^; I think they are sabres.

Kurando Inugami - Shadow Hearts 2.

Raiden - Metal Gear Solid 4.

Uchiha Sasuke - Naruto Shippuuden.

Jin Uzuki from Xenosaga uses a katana

11-22-2009, 09:23 AM
Oi, no one has said Auron from Final Fantasy X! :P

His endgame katana = awesome, though the costume itself is a bit tricky.

Baiken from Guilty Gear :3

Shana from Shakugan no Shana

Gintoki - Gintama
Yamamoto - Rebon Hitman

one of the girls from Touhou

That would be Youmu Konpaku, as a sidenote she has two (slightly shorter and really long) :)

Kazuo Kiriyama from Battle Royale uses a Katana at one point. He uses it to commit his most epic kill in my opinion. xD

If you're not limiting it to anime, then Mouse from ReBoot.

Kenshin Himura (http://www.freewebs.com/saki_saki/Kenshin.JPG) from Rurouni Kenshin
Zhou Tai (http://ui13.gamespot.com/460/charapopup35_2.jpg) from Dynasty Warriors (although that sword is more an odashi...)
Mitsurugi (http://www.videogamesblogger.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/05/mitsurugi-heishiro-in-soul-calibur-4.jpg) from Soulcalibur
Inuyasha (http://www.dragonwiles.com/Images/SevenPicts/Inuyasha-tachi/Inuyasha.jpg) from InuYasha

There are lots and lots of more, but those first popped up in my head.
