Short Stories

Innocent Black

Jubei (獣兵衛), formerly known as Mitsuyoshi (ミツヨシ), and also known as the One-Eyed Lotus (双蓮の隻眼 Sōren no Sekigan)[1], is one of the Six Heroes who fought in the Dark War against the Black Beast and a cat-type beastkin, being the progenitor of the Kaka. Jubei was the husband of Nine the Phantom and is the father of Kokonoe. He has taught Ragna the Bloodedge, Jin Kisaragi, and Platinum the Trinity, also being the wielder of the Nox Nyctores - Mucro Somnio: Musashi.

Jubei first appeared in BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger but was not made playable until years later as DLC for BlazBlue: Central Fiction.


Jubei is a two tailed, cat-type beastkin with black and white fur, amber eyes and a black mane, which is hidden under his hood.

He wears a largely orange hoodie with black trimmings, reminiscent of those worn by the Kaka clan, with a brown belt strap that went over his right shoulder, which he uses to carry the Musashi. He also wears a belt-like eyepatch over his right eye. Underneath it is his late brother Tomonori's right eye, which was given to him by Rachel, years after he lost his original eye defending Bloodedge and Celica from a remnant of the Black Beast.

During the time of the Dark War, Jubei wore a yellow hoodie which he kept open, a red forehead protector, a brown tunic held with a dark brown belt with silver kunai like tips hanging from it and a red collar with a gold buckle. While fighting the Black Beast, Jubei wore samurai-like armor, consisting of a black chestplate with a red neck guard, red and gold armored sleeves that reached down past his arms, which were fastened to the chestplate with red and gold trimmed straps and a black and red helmet with a prominent gold crest, which also had cat ears on it.


He may be unrefined, but he upholds a generous code of ethics with dignity. Having obtained a place that reeks of humans more than humans do, he is easily swayed by emotions. [2]

Powers & Techniques

Creation & Development

Jubei was initially designed by Yuuki Kato as a non-playable character for BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger. On July 16, 2017, he was revealed as a new DLC character for BlazBlue: Central Fiction at the Evo 2017 championships. He was released in Japan and North America on August 31, 2017, and released in Europe on September 4.

Creator's Comment

Mori: I asked Kato to conceptualize the "strongest character in the world," and a cat was the result. Wait a minute, the strongest character in the world is a cat? (laughs)

Kato: It's pretty unexpected.

Mori: It's the same for Kokonoe. Anyway, Kato sure loves cats.[3]

Library Entry


One of the Six Heroes, who is also known as the One-Eyed Lotus. He is a long-living beastkin, who is one of the few people to have personally experienced the Dark War. He wanders the world and has friends in every part of the globe. At one point, he took Ragna under his wing and trained him.

A little uncouth, but is generous and dignified in his manner. One could say he is even more human than humans, and can be easily swayed from emotions.

He is Kokonoe's blood-related father, but their current relationship is shaky at best. [4]


A beastkin warrior who fights with a katana and his razor-sharp claws. He believes in duty and humanity, and has a strong sense of justice. Under the request of his long-time friend, Clavis Alucard, he investigated Shuichiro Ayatsuki's research and findings.

Many of his clan died to the Black Beast, making his hatred for the monster stronger than normal.

He later changes his name to Jubei, and joins forces with the Six Heroes. After the Dark War came to a close, he marries one of the other members of the Six Heroes, Nine. [5]
