Kuyo

Kuyo (九曜, Kuyō), is both a fictional character and antagonist of the Rosario + Resurrection series created by Akihisa Ikeda and Yasunori Mitsunaga. He is the head of the Public Safety Committee at Yōkai Academy until his defeat by the academy's headmaster.

Kuyo enforces the group's rules with a tyrannical and sadistic iron fist, going so far as to state if someone goes against him, they are against the school. When Tsukune is put on trial for being a human, he attempts to kill him to the point where Moka stopped him.

He is a fox demon, an S-Class species of monster who are amongst one of the most powerful of all Monsters who live in Japan. These type of monsters have even known to be worshiped as divine beings, and his abilities are fire-based.

Kuyo believes that yōkai and humans will always remain enemies, claiming friendship between the two only occurs in fairy tales. After Kuyo had been stripped and revoked of his title, he joined Fairy Tale and became the 3rd Subdivision Leader.

"Give me a break with all this 'friends sticking together' bulls***. Humans and monsters are enemies and always will be!"

—Kuyo.

Background[]

Personality[]

"Kuyō is the kind of guy who mistakenly believes that, without a doubt, everything he does is for the sake of justice. Anyone who goes against him is going against justice and is an evildoer, and he believes that he can do anything for his own sake, because he is justice."

Ginei on Kuyo.

While many of the student police force are harsh and ruthless, Kuyō is by far the most fearsome of them all. Possessed with a strong lust for power and relentless sadism, Kuyō is a tremendously cruel individual who takes great satisfaction in the pain of others and thrives on the fear and submission his actions receive. In addition to this, he is arrogant and a megalomaniac, who believes that he is the law and that he is free to interpret and execute it in anyway that he wishes. This is the essence of an evil tyrant.

This results in an individual who is a bloodthirsty dictator, who does not allow any dissent and he will proceed to strike down anyone who attempts to so much as question him. He is also prone to acts of tremendous violence, beating up and incinerating his victims and imprisoning those who do not pay their debts to him. This makes his student police force more like thugs in a protection racket. He also possesses a fearsome temper and will quickly fly into a rage with little provocation.

In the anime, he is not as quick to anger, though he is just as sadistic, manipulative, and arrogant as he is in the manga. It isn't until events turn against him that he truly gets angry, such as when Tsukune is revived by Flame of Life, and Moka calls him on his criminal activities and hypocrisy, which is when he is thoroughly outraged. This reflects that he's got a problem with "injustice" only when it doesn't suit his needs.

Kuyō has a deep hatred for Lillianne's family, born from his defeat at the latter's hands. He does not think highly of Tsukune or Hiro, believing they're just weaklings who has to hide behind the women around him and is insulted by the very idea of having lost to such a man. When Tsukune overcame his fear of Kuyō and fought with Princess against him seriously the latter was further enraged and suffered disbelief due to the difference in their powers, he went on to use his full power, bragging he could kill Lillianne and advance ever further, but suffered only further humiliation upon failing to defeat him a second time.

During the moment of his second defeat rather than trying to understand how they defeated him, Kuyo instead just display disbelief at the thought of defeat from Lillianne and Tsukune despite it happening to him twice. Also after his second defeat, he proceeded to brag about the dimension designed to kill them thus showing that he is a sore loser.

Despite these faults of Kuyo, in the Rosario + Resurrection II chapter 67 Extra II, it's been shown that he has some honor towards his fellow monsters if they have his respect as he agreed to look after Kahlua when Miyabi revived her before going into battle against his enemies. He also shown concern towards Hokuto when the latter's hybrid blood deterioration left him completely unconscious and unable to wake up after his fight with Kiria despite being a former human whom he has a deep seated hatred towards.

Also during his observation of Alucard's final battle against all of his enemies, Kuyo is shown to have solemn look towards the scenery and left with Kiria to rebuild Fairy Tale despite its tremendous loss which implies that Kuyo decided to learn from his loss against Lillianne rather try to attack the latter and his friends just after the battle in spite of their vulnerable state of just recovering from fighting against Alucard.

Abilities and Powers[]

Powers[]

  • Fox Demon Physiology: As a Fox Demon, Kuyō possesses the fearsome abilities of his race, with their formidable Yōki, their Kitsunebi (Fox Fire), their tremendous strength and speed and their renowned Battle Form. In the beginning of the series Kuyō possessed only four tails but later on he is seen with an additional fifth tail, meaning his power has greatly increased since Part I.
    • Transformation: Like all Yōkai, Kuyō is able to transform into a Human form and revert to normal monster state. Unlike many Monsters, as a Fox Demon, he is able to transform into an advanced form, one more powerful than his base-line or Human form.
      • Battle Form: As the most feared weapon of the Fox Demon, this form is specifically optimized for combat and striking fear into the enemy. It is possessed of a significantly hardened and strengthened body, an imposing if somewhat attractive appearance, this form significantly amplifies the Fox Demon's power. In this form, the Fox Demon's Yōki is concentrated and boosted to a higher level of power than their base-line form, rendering the Fox Demon unbeatable to non-high level and non-S-Class monsters. True to its nature, the Battle Form enhances the user's combat abilities, allowing him/her to unleash fearsome blasts of Kitsunebi, move with tremendous speed and agility, withstand powerful attacks with a solid degree of success, and strike with pulverizing, ground-shaking physical force. After his humiliation by Princess and Tsukune, he began to train himself and gained a fifth tail. The caused his battle form to change, creating clothing out of fire. He stated that anything that got near him would be burnt.
    • Kitsunebi (Fox Fire): The principle weapon of the Fox Demon, this body-covering fire serves as Kuyō's primary weapon, which he is able to employ in all of his forms, which is always accompanied by a strong burst of Yōki whenever he uses it. This Yōki-generated fire is incredibly hot, and depending upon how much power Kuyō puts into it, it is capable of seriously burning his opponent, or causing a concussive burst of fiery energy capable of vaporizing bone. He employs this fire attacks in a few distinct ways; as a contact-based attack, where he unleashes the fire at point-blank range, which can easily overpower low-class monsters, a generic fireball attack whose power depends upon what form he is in, and a specialized, full-power, potentially lethal technique.
    • Enhanced Strength: As an S-Class monster, Kuyo possesses enhanced physical strength where he was able to counter and block all of Inner Moka's fierce attacks though they were greatly weakened from her injecting blood into Tsukune beforehand. Later on during his fight with Tsukune and Ruby in his dimension, Kuyo sent Ruby flying to a boulder with one powerful punch that knocked her unconscious for some time (though she was probably still recovering from her injuries in her fight with Raika). His ordinary punches were also powerful enough that Tsukune had a hard time defending against them before using his vampire strength despite being able to catch a pillar thrown to him by Gyokuro Shuzen while in his modified human form (though Tsukune's body remembering the sensation of Kuyo's attacks held him back somewhat).
    • Enhanced Durability: Kuyō is very durable as he was able to survive from taking dozens of fatal beat down blows from Ginei who was in his monster form and moment later return to the battlefield in his monster form completely ignoring his wound (despite such injuries are capable of taking out a S-class monster in battle) and later on took several kicks delivered to him by the likes of Inner Moka and appeared completely unfazed (albeit Inner Moka's was weakened during the time). He also took an direct explosive punch from Tsukune to the face. That although it causes damage, does nothing more than push him back and later took several fatal attacks delievered to him by Tsukune's first unseal state greviously wounding him, however despite the injuries he was able to return back to the battle in his monster form completely ignoring his wounds.
    • Enhanced Stamina: Kuyo's musculature produces fatigue toxins considerably less than the musculature of ordinary humans or yokai, allowing him to stay physically active for longer periods of time. Kuyo first demonstrated this in being able to fight against the entire Newspaper Club by himself which included Ginei, a werewolf, before fighting against Inner Moka alone in rapid succession. Later on Kuyo regained consciousness in an attempt to kill Tsukune and Ruby by setting the dimension they were in on fire while his wounds from his fight with Tsukune were still open and had enough strength to open a portal to escape the dimension.
    • Enhanced Speed: During his second fight with Princess and Tsukune, Kuyo was able to overwhelm the latter with various rapid attacks before he could react though Ruby did noted that the experience of near death Tsukune had been dealt with from his first fight with Kuyo caused his body to subconsciously slow down.
    • Enhanced Agility: Kuyo has some agility where during his second with Tsukune he was able to jump around the floating boulders in his dimension without losing control and even attacked Tsukune and Ruby whilst in mid-air. Kuyo also made several back flips when he was retreating after being struck by Tsukune to a nearby boulder as well.
    • Flight: Kuyō is able to fly into the air (anime) when he went to kill Tsukune after when Kurumu and Ruby got Tsukune to safety.
    • Great Demonic Aura: Kuyo is able to exert a great amount of yoki that has the same fiery effect of his fox fire during his first fight against the Newspaper Club. After training for a year to become a subdivision leader of Fairy Tale, Kuyo's yoki took the image of a giant fox demon in flames that initially unnerved Tsukune. After activating his new battle form, Kuyo's yoki was able to burn through physical objects in short distances.

Abilities[]

  • Expert Hand-to-Hand Combatant: His has skills in hand-to-hand fighting combat by his own right. He can use them together with his fire manipulation thus further augmenting his punches with fire as shown by first demonstrating by taking down the Outer Moka with a mere punch to the stomach. He then blocked everyone one of Inner Moka's high-speed attack and even found an opening in Inner Moka's defense and took her down effortlessly without even trying (albeit Inner Moka's power was greatly weakened during the time) and later fought an even ground against Tsukune blocking most of his attacks until the final clash.
  • Swordsman: Due to him later equipping a sword, it can be presumed that Kuyo learned some swordsmanship where he ignited the blade in fire to further augment its power though as Tsukune defeated him after releasing the first seal of his holy lock before Kuyo can use his sword it's unknown what the full extent of his swordsmanship is.

Attacks[]

  • Ball of Fire: Kuyō summons a huge fireball on the top of his hand and it creates a huge explosion on impact which was capable enough to take down Ruby with a single hit.
  • Vortex of Fire: His signature attack when in his baseline or Battle Form, Kuyō unleashes a swift surge of Yōki, which is then drawn to the tips of his tails, and generates a swirling array of five fireballs, with a central orb circled by four smaller ones. This assembly of Fox Fire then begins to rotate up to cyclone-like speeds, and is hurled at the enemy at tremendous speed. The power of this attack is fearsome, for it generates significant explosive force alongside its burning power, and could easily leave lesser opponents as a pile of ash. The power of the attack was sufficient to severely burn and wound Ginei Moriaka, who is a Werewolf, another species of S-Class Monster.
  • Fire Punch: Kuyō ignites his fist in flames to enhance his punches to have a burning fiery effect.
  • Fire Spear: Kuyō forms a large spear/arrow of fire and throws it at his opponent, impaling and then immolating said opponent. This is the attack Kuyō used to nearly kill Tsukune during their first battle.
  • Entei Toui: This is Kuyo's new battle form that he obtained in his training to become the 3rd Sub-Division leader of Fairy Tale where he covers his body in an emperor robe woven from his fox fire. The fox fire also burns anything that comes in contact with him thus granting Kuyo enhanced defense along sending out waves of fire and heat that burn anything near him though those powerful enough can resist the flames.
  • Flame Katana: Kuyō can cover his katana in flames. Its effect is unknown, because he was instantly defeated before he could use it.

Notes & Trivia[]

  • In the manga, Princess teamed up with Tsukune to defeat Kuyō, however in the anime, she teamed up with Moka.
  • Kuyō has become Tsukune's destined enemy tied by fate when they first met at Yōkai Academy.
  • Given he was an undercover agent for Fairy Tale like Kiria, who helped Hokuto found ANTI-THESIS, a likely theory is that both would have used their groups to overthrow Yokai Academy. However, Kuyo's defeat disrupted the plan, forcing ANTI-THESIS to not make a move until the School Festival neared.
