The following article contains HEAVY SPOILERS! Read on at your own caution!

Long Min ( (ロン) (ミン) , Ron Min) was the second-ranked Guardian of Katsumasa Hayami, as well as a loaned member of the Worm.

Appearance

Long Min was a tall, youthful man of Chinese descent. He had straight shoulder-length black hair, a single strand of hair always loose, and a subtly arrogant and condescending expression on his face. Like the other Guardians, Long wore a completely white suit with a white tie and shirt. He had a centipede-like tattoo on his left collarbone.

Personality

Long Min possessed an air of composed arrogance about him, never losing his cool in any situation and taking things at his own pace.

Plot

He and Gunji Kito were introduced as Katsumasa Hayami's highest ranked Guardians, mirroring those of Metsudo Katahara.

Having seemingly gone missing for a while, Gunji told Long it was time for them to get ready to move.

Later, after Julius Reinhold was knocked out of the tournament by Takeshi Wakatsuki, Gunji suggested that they cut their losses and abandon Hayami as things weren't looking good for them. However Long confidently told Gunji to stay put as everything would fall into place.

Soon, after the second round had ended, Long Min and the other Guardians began their "revolution". Long and his group encountered Kaolan Wongsawat, Suekichi Kaneda, Adam Dudley and Cosmo Imai in a corridor of the Kengan Dome, noting they had bad luck running into him. At that, he began skilfully and dangerously fending them off with his dao, swinging it in wide arcs. Despite never really being in any real danger, Long suddenly left after being receiving an unknown order. Later, he killed a few more Bodyguards as he escaped and informed his mysterious associate about being unable to retrieve Ohma Tokita and take control of the Kengan Association.

Before he could escape Ganryu Island, he was killed by a unknown individual from the "Worm".

Power & Abilities

As the number-two man of the Guardians, Long Min had consistently defended his position in the Guardians' rankings, overcoming all but Gunji Kito. He was very proficient in the use of a liuyedao, and used the tassel on its hilt to swing it in wide arcs.[2] Long Min claimed that his sword skill is "impenetrable". While fighting against Kaolan, Suekichi, Adam and Cosmo in the corridor of Kengan Dome, he exhibited swinging motions with the dao in a sphere-like range that not even Gaolang or Adam could get past.[3] Despite being number two, Long Min was noted to be leagues more dangerous than Kito Gunji[4] with his true power probably being even greater than Gunji's.[1]

Possessing Spirit

The technique Long Min used to increase his damage output. While in this form, his skin turned red, his hair seemed to float in the air and his heartbeat grew loud enough to be heard from a distance. While this technique is meant to be used as a trump card or last resort, Long Min seemed to use it more liberally to overwhelm his opponents.[5]

While the Possessing Spirit posed serious drawbacks to the user, Long Min died before he started showing signs of the toll the technique had on his body.

Notes & Trivia

  • While in Japan, Long got into eating tenshinhan.[1]
  • Long Min was also the name of a powerful martial artist from the Chu state. Because his reputation, many martial artists call themselves Long Min, for wanting to be as powerful as he was. While it's not confirmed, this Long Min might be one of those martial artists. In that case, his real name is currently unknown.
