Nogi is a shrewd individual with an experienced and cunning air about him. He has a good eye for noticing other person's useful qualities and manipulating them to benefit himself. As an experienced member of the Kengan Association, Nogi has a perceptive eye in regards to the fighting environment, being able to perceive and recognize the actions and movements of the fighters he observes. He is also sharp and cunning enough to outmaneuver and outwit an Association member of Hayami Katsumasa's level.
Having heard the story of Yamashita Ichinoshin and the vanishing Yamashita Family from his grandfather, as was the tradition in the Nogi Family, the previously indifferent Nogi was shaken when he discovered Yamashita Kazuo working at one of his subsidiaries five years prior to the most recent Kengan Annihilation Tournament. Remembering the last will of Nogiya Eikichi, "Find the Yamashita Family and repay them", Nogi decided to become the new Kengan Association chairman, with the preparation for it taking him five years.
He has Kazuo watch over Tokita Ohma.
