Samato is a well muscled individual with a long face, a sharp nose and long light-coloured hair, which he wears in a single long, crescent-shaped bang that covers the right side of his face. However, his most distinguishing feature are his completely black sclera at .
When announcing the no-holds-barred Rokushin Kaikan tournament to the top members of Rokushin Kaikan, Ao Kenji mentioned that he planned to incentivise Ikeuchi to participate with the presence of someone Ikeuchi had a grudge against. This fighter was revealed to be Samato when he suddenly met Ikeuchi and declared his entry into the Rokushin Kaikan tournament.
After this, Samato entered the tournament, being placed in C block.
Powers and Abilities
Samato is a powerful and intimidating opponent. Mentaro considers him the strongest nak muay he knows and also possibly the strongest man in general. Samato's elbow strikes in particular were strong enough to rip Oshio Gaku's face open and nearly cleave his hand in half.
Similar to the Kure and the Wu, Samato is able to freely access and utilise his latent muscular strength with no repercussions. The technique makes the user's skin turn red (or a dark shade of red-violet in the anime adaptation) with their blood vessels bulging on the surface. It is not currently known how much of his latent power he was able to release. When using Removal, Samato is able to damage Tatsuyoshi Katsuya, who is physically very durable and resilient, but despite that, Samato was unable to defeat him.

- According to Sandrovich, Samato and the Kure Clan are aware of each other's existence, though are neutral and have no particular connection.
