Kyo, judging by the events of the series, fills the role of the classic bully. Antagonizing both Nariko and Kai (the former by constantly reminding her of her birth, the latter by reminding her of her lack of clan parentage), Kyo is implied to have consistently and constantly tormented the sisters over the years prior to the events of the film.

Initially, it appears that he also can quite brave in contrast; Shen, speaking of his sacrifice in order for the clan to escape, calls him brave, stating that his death allowed others to be able to live. However, it is later revealed that Kyo instead was simply riding to join Bohan's army, informing him on the movements of the clan as well as Nariko and Kai.

This allowed for many members of the clan, including Shen himself and Prophet Takashi, to be captured by Bohan's forces. This depiction paints Kyo as cowardly and self-serving, rather than brave; despite his stated intentions of wanting to save the clan, in reality he only saved himself by exchanging information to Bohan in return for asylum. This information allowed Bohan to torment members of his clan and enabled his soldiers to go out and murder, rape and pillage with impunity.

Powers and Abilities[]

In the few moments he is witnessed training, Kyo asserts himself as being quite capable and skilled with a staff, as he is able to dispatch the clansmen with whom he is sparring relatively quickly. In addition, upon the invasion of the fort by Bohan's Ninjas, he is proven to be adept at the usage of the clan's traditional Longsword as well, killing several fighters in close combat. However, his skills pale in comparison to that of Nariko, who is able to easily disarm him when he attacks her with his hidden dagger.

Early history[]

Not much is known of Kyo's early life. According to his depiction, Kyo is a young man and member of Nariko's clan who appears to be around the same age as Nariko herself. It can be assumed that both his mother and father are members of the clan as well, as he refers to Kai, whom he is seen tormenting at the film's beginning, as an "orphan." Nevertheless, Kyo remains deeply devoted to both the clan and Master Shen, as he is constantly trying to gain Shen's approval.

  • Kyo means "Cooperation" (協力, "kyoryoku") in Japanese; this may be a hint at his insidious nature in the film, as he indeed is the only one of the clansmen to cooperate with Bohan at the end.

Notes & Trivia[]

  • Kyo's presence assumes the role of a secondary antagonist; this role was originally held by King Bohan, with the Raven King being the main antagonist.
    • This may explain his role in multiple scenes. For example, he approaches Nariko with the proposition of handing the Heavenly Sword over to Bohan outside the fort, while in the game Bohan's forces are informed of the clan's location by the Raven King.
