"The Niko Style's reached a dead end. I can't expect any further evolution from it. Not as it is now. So I'll use anything I can get my hands on, whether it comes from God or the Devil."
— The Other Niko to Edward Wu


This Niko Tokita ( () () () () () , Tokita Niko), referred to as The Other Niko Tokita (もう (ひと) () () () () () () , Mōhitori no Tokita Niko)[1] to differentiate from the Niko who trained Ohma Tokita, was a mysterious individual who abandoned the Niko Style to pursue his ultimate technique and had ties to the Worm.

Appearance

The Other Niko was a muscular man with menacing and wild facial features, almost like those of a tiger. He had long light hair swept behind his head and mild beard and moustache. His most notable features were his big eyes with light irises and narrow pupils.

In Agito's memories of him, he possessed a shorter haircut compared to when Ohma first encountered him.

Personality

The Other Niko was proud of his own capabilities and techniques, going so far as to abandon the Niko Style in pursuit of a greater power. He had no problem in using others for his own gain, like organizing human Gu rituals or planting the Possessing Spirit within those such as Ohma Tokita.

History

The Other Niko was one of the many orphans in The Inside who became students of Mukaku Gaoh, who was trying to unite the Inside through martial force. Like the rest of the students, the Other Niko learned the Niko Style from Mukaku and adopted the name "Niko Tokita" as his own.[2]

At one point, The Other Niko created his own techniques as part of the Niko Style. Due to these techniques being inherently flawed, he eventually abandoned the Niko Style and eventually discovered the Formless stance.[3] He would later join the Worm, becoming an ally with his own faction, which included his students.[4]

Twenty-three years prior to the events of Kengan Ashura, The Other Niko had sealed away many of his students (among whom were Kanoh Agito and Lu Tian) in various human Gu rituals.[1] Xia Ji was also apparently meant to be in one such ritual, but escaped before it began.[5] He later taught Lu Tian to perfect the Formless technique,[1][3] while Agito was discovered by Katahara Metsudo. For the second generation of students, he abandoned the Niko Style in favor of only teaching the Formless stance. In addition, he had also taught the secrets of Guihun, information that he had paid off from Edward Wu. Out of all his students, the only known student who can handle the strain of unleashing one's latent strength was Lu Tian.[6]

Ten years later, The Other Niko secretly Ohma Tokita's training under his Niko's tutelage. He had also appeared before Setsuna Kiryu while the latter witnessed what had become of Ohma. With Setsuna believing Ohma's Niko to be the devil who had corrupted Ohma, The Other Niko told Setsuna that he'd give him the power to kill the devil. Telling Setsuna the "truth" of Tokita Niko, The Other Niko trained Setsuna in the Niko Style before sending him to Genzan Taira.[7]

Three years later, The Other Niko appeared before Ohma, telling him to forget about the Niko Style because he'd make him strong. Quickly overwhelming Ohma in a brief series of blows, The Other Niko then bestowed the Possessing Spirit upon Ohma before leaving, calling him a "Tiger's Vessel".[7] When Ohma's Niko stopped Ohma's Possessing Spirit-fuelled rampage, he challenged and fought The Other Niko in a brutal battle. While The Other Niko was able to land a fatal hit on Ohma's Niko, Setsuna claimed that he lost his life in exchange.[8] However, considering the source was from Setsuna, whose mental state had been deteriorating rapidly, The Other Niko's true fate remains unknown.

Power & Abilities

Although he was never shown fighting directly, the Other Tokita Niko can be assumed to have been extremely strong, being a master of the Niko Style and proficient in it like the other "Niko Tokitas."

Allegedly, despite his incredible fighting prowess he wasn't as strong as Ohma's Tokita Niko and apparently died while fighting him.

Niko Style

The Other Niko was a master of the Niko Style; his proficiency with the martial art was enough to fight on par with Ohma's Niko. The Other Niko was also the creator of two of the Niko Style's secret techniques, Fallen Demon and Possessing Spirit. He eventually abandoned the Niko Style for the flaws it possessed.

Formless

Though it's unknown how this Niko learned or created this technique, Formless was recognized by his student, Lu Tian, as his "ultimate technique". It was the very reason that brought him to abandon the Niko Style, to perfect his technique and pass it on to whoever was able to survive the Gu rituals.

Guihun

Though he never intended to use it himself, The Other Niko was taught the basics of the secret technique by Edward Wu. His understanding of the technique allowed him to teach it to his students. Lu Tian is the only known student of the Other Niko who can handle the physical strain or, at least, disregard it to an extent.
