Narushima Joji ( (なる) (しま) (じょう) () , Narushima Jōji), also known as The Poisonous Snake ( (どく) (じゃ) , Dokuja), is a 6th Dan Rokushin Kaikan karateka, and formerly one of the Rokushin Three. He was the champion of one of the Rokushin Kaikan's recent open tournaments and also participated in the most recent Rokushin Kaikan open tournament, placing highly. Several years after the Rokushin Kaikan tournament, Joji has retired from competing in karate matches and has become a Rokushin Kaikan instructor.[4]

Appearance

Joji is a physically powerful man with a highly built frame, messy fair-coloured hair and lines under his eyes. His most distinguishing feature is his blinded left eye. While it was injured while fighting a bear during a training in the mountains, the three scars are from when he was scratched in a marital dispute.

Personality

Joji is a generally serious individual, who rarely minces his words.

History

More than 10 years before the Rokushin Kaikan tournament no rules took place, Joji was influenced by Karate Baka Ichidai , so he went to the mountains to practice, one of which was once against a brown bear. Joji eventually escaped at the cost of losing his left eye. Some time later, during an argument with his wife, Joji was scratched with 3 scratches on his left eye and Tatsuyoshi Katsuya had to stand up to reconcile the two[5][2].

Joji has participated in 10 previous Rokushin Kaikan tournaments and was defeated seven times by Tatsuyoshi in the final round[2].

In addition to fighting Tatsuyoshi, Joji also played 64 times against Muto Shinya with 16 wins, 30 losses and 4 draws. Five years ago, Joji created the Poisonous Snake technique to defeat Tatsuyoshi, the score against Muto changed with 11 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw[6].

Seven years before Fist of the Seeker Part 2 started, Joji joined Tatsuyoshi and Kaibara Dozan to help Shido Hishiyasu, after Tatsuyoshi defeated and kicked Yanagi Roken out of the dojo, Narushima and Kaibara helped Shido up and leave[7].

Joji entered the tournament before the no-rules tournament, defeated Shido or Yamada in the semi-finals and defeated Motoyama Jin in the final and became the champion[8][9].

At some point in the past, Joji helped Narushima Koga get into the Rokushin Kaikan, but Koga later got expelled for getting into fights, embarrassing Joji in the process.[4]

Plot

Fist of the Seeker

Kengan Omega

Having found out about Koga's presence in Tokyo (after Koga trashed a hospital), he met with Koga after Kureishi Mitsuyo brought him over. With Koga sheepishly apologising for past actions, Joji waved them off and told Koga to get changed as they would be sparring. With Koga doubting Joji's abilities, Joji told him to prepare himself before quickly and heavily flooring Koga. With Koga reeling, Joji told him to get back to his feet as he would be giving Koga extreme training.

During the Kengan Association VS Purgatory Tournament he was present in the stands with Kureishi, Koga and Akiyama Kaede. In his case, he was more invested in enjoying his food. Then, after the tenth match, Joji and Kureishi left the stands to look for the Worms who injured Koga before the tournament.

Power & Abilities

Joji is a very powerful Rokushin Kaikan karateka who was once one of the Rokushin Three, the three strongest karateka of the Rokushin Kaikan school.[1] He was the winner of one of one of the Rokushin Kaikan's open tournaments and reached the final four in the most recent tournament.

Several years later, Joji has retained his immense fighting prowess and is considered to stand at the pinnacle of all the Rokushin Kaikan members.[4] The reason he retired from competing in karate matches was so that he could master "pure karate" that was "not for competitions"; as such, he is still getting stronger by the day.[4] Kureishi Mitsuyo noted that Joji was far beyond him in terms of striking.[4]

Notes & Trivia

  • Joji's hobby is to eat delicious food and his motto is "Be thorough in everything you do".
