Issa Shuzen

Issa Shuzen (朱染 一茶, Shuzen Issa), is both a fictional character and deuteragonist from the Rosario + Resurrection series created by Akihisa Ikeda and Yasunori Mitsunaga. He is the head of the Shuzen Family, and a very influential figure among Vampires.

He is well-known and respected for its reputation of dealing with "problems" in the underworld. According to Reiri, he is the leader of the Three Great Dark Lords, and the Shinso. Fittingly, he is incredibly powerful and a very capable combatant.

Issa created Moka's Rosario Cross and the one used for the school barrier. His contempt for humans knows no bounds and, according to Koumori, his powers exceed that of a standard S-class monster, able to throw anyone with just a wave of his hand.

"As I thought, humans are so weak."

—Issa Shuzen.

Abilities and Powers[]


  • Vampirism: Though the full extent of Issa's powers are not shown he is mentioned by Touhou Fuhai, one of the Three Dark Lords, as having power far greater than an ordinary S-Class vampire. He was also referred to as the strongest vampire which was proven when he easily defeated Tsukune and leff him a bloody mess without receiving any injury. Though considering that Issa is not a Shinso vampire but has power that allows him to surpass the currently only living Shinso Vampires easily, he must have reached the pinnacle of vampiric potential and abilities.
    • Immense Strength: Issa is known as an extremely powerful vampire due to his enormous strength. With a powerful clap he silenced both Kahlua and Akua from their fight with the two being visibly frightened. He is able to destroy an entire bar table by simply slamming both of his fist on top and killed a poisonous monster that almost killed Tsukune with a single powerful punch. Issa's strength matches that of a Dark Lord and he was strong enough that he was able to easily overpower Tsukune as a Shinso Vampire and beat him to a bloody mess.
    • Immense Speed: Issa is shown to be extremely fast, as he was able to easily catch Tuskune completely off guard with his speed when a poisonous monster tried to kill Tsukune from behind while the latter couldn't react to his movement. Later,when they sparred,Issa was not hit even once by Tsukune and he very quickly defeated Tsukune.
    • Yoki Detection: Issa can detect another monster's aura which is a standard ability amongst vampires. Though Issa's skill in this ability appears to be more advanced than an average vampire as he was able to detect the poisonous monster attempting to kill Tsukune while Tsukune himself and his friends didn't even noticed it. Though their attention was completely focused on Issa out of suspicions of his intentions when they noticed that he dropped a wanted poster of Tsukune out of his coat pocket.
    • Immense Demonic Aura: Issa apparently has a monstrous level of Yoki as when the 2nd Sub-Division Leader of Fairy Tale had copied the vampire's form and abilities to a lesser degree, Moka had sensed his Yoki to be identical to that of Issa himself from a far away distance and became increasingly frightened by his presence. In fact she even proclaimed him to be Shuzen's strongest man while still under the belief that the doppelganger was Issa.
      • Force Push: Issa has shown the ability to repel others away just by exerting his Yoki with either a wave of his hand or by his thought. He did this to push Duke Dracul away from where he was sitting to show his disapproval of the Duke's actions.


  • Master Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Issa is extremely skilled in Hand-to-Hand Combat and an exceptionally powerful fighter with his immense speed, agility, and strength, with Kokoa noting his combat level as being equal to that of the Three Dark Lords. This was proven when Issa is able to easily defeat Tsukune after he became a Shinso Vampire during training, in fact, Tsukune was unable to land a single hit on Issa while he reduced the latter to a bloody mess in their fight.

Miscellaneous Skills[]


Although Issa is a pure-blooded vampire and isn't repulsed by garlic, crosses or sunlight, he still is afraid of water and can be killed by driving a white ash stake through his heart. Also barriers set up by divine beings (such as those of the evil gods) repels him. While sunlight does not harm her it does weaken and disorient him. In the anime, if restrained (via ropes, hands, etc.), she cannot turn into bats. However this doesn't happen in the OVA. In the manga this weakness is shown inconsistently. She can still fall under mind-control by stronger opponents.

Also, like the vampires of legend, he cannot enter a building unless he is invited in (even if the building is abandoned and has no owner/inhabitants), although he can set the building on fire to flush the inhabitants out (which Reiri did, in the manga).
