Kagura Mutsuki (カグラ=ムツキ), commonly known as the Black Knight and Black Gale, is a colonel in the Novus Orbis Librarium. Kagura is the current head of the Mutsuki family, and leader of the Imperial Guards. He led the coup d'etat to remove Izanami from power and seat Homura Amanohokosaka as its new Imperator. An alternate possibility of Kagura exists, named Another Dark Kagura.

Kagura debuted and was made playable in BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma. He was revealed for BlazBlue Alternative: Dark War on October 14th, 2021.


Kagura's NOL uniform.

Kagura is tall and lean, with purple eyes and spiky black hair. He wears a loose white shirt with black lines accenting the edges. The left side is crossed over the right and secured by three brown belts: two thinner ones at his waist, and one larger one resting over his hips that sports a golden buckle. Draped over his shoulder is a black cape with gold trim and crimson lining, fastened at the neck with a brown belt. He also wears black trousers and brown shoes with steel toecaps.

Kagura's weapon is an enormous black sword with red grooves along both edges. The handle has a white grip wrapped around it. It lacks a both a tip to the blade and a guard on the hilt, and is shaped like a flat rectangle.


A gentleman who likes to flaunt himself and clearly knows that he's at the top, but remains shrewd even while being carefree. Always looking into the future, he knows right from wrong and can cleanly divide good from evil.[1][2][3]

Kagura can be described to most people as a womanizer and an alcoholic. He often holds wild parties and is sometimes caught hungover from one. Women are his greatest weakness, as he will flirt at the drop of a hat and won't miss a beat even if they retaliate. He sometimes understands when to hold back, but this is not always the case. There are some women that are exempt of this treatment though, for example Tsubaki Yayoi, Kokonoe, and Rachel Alucard. Despite him being a womanizer, Kagura has shown actual respect to women, such as him being incredibly protective when Noel was attacked by Arakune, to the point that he was really enraged and wanted to kill Arakune, and noting that it was so unlike him.

Underneath this, Kagura is deeply dedicated to Homura, and would go above and beyond for his liege. At times, Kagura affects a serious air, and he has expressed his desire to help regular civilians, not just those close to him. He was close friends with Bang Shishigami in the past, as they were both pupils of Tenjo Amanohokosaka. Kagura's deepest relationship is with Hibiki Kohaku, his loyal secretary and literary foil.

Powers & Techniques

The Black Knight is easily among the strongest of the cast. He has fought consistently his whole life and undergone harsh training that has allowed him to best even Azrael's first limiter, a feat that no one else can boast. He's also able to resist against Phantom's Gravity Seed magic to some extent. Kagura's Drive is Black Gale which allows him access to several stances. Kagura primarily fights using Ars Magus which in his hands, manifests as attacks coated in dark purple energy. He can manipulate the dark energy in some forms, such as firing a purple orb or launching an explosion of dark energy from the ground. As the head of the Praetorian Guard, his strength is legendary even among the strongest of the NOL's forces.

Kagura has a gifted strength and can lift his massive sword with relative ease; he dances around his blade, launching it at his opponents, or uses it to vault over and even as a shield, showing great talent in handling his weapon despite its cumbersome size. His strength has even been compared to Azrael's, although he protests being "lumped in" with the Mad Dog.

Despite all his strengths, Kagura still has weaknesses. He can underestimate opponents such as Meifang and be beaten by his chivalrous attitude towards women. His capabilities also had limits, such as him being powerless against opponents like Izanami.[4]

BlazBlue: Central Fiction Library Entry

Kagura Mutsuki

The head of the Mutsuki Family of the Duodecim. He is a commander of the Praetorian Guard, and the highest ranking official in the Intelligence Department. His rank is Colonel.

He has no shortcomings in both politics and martial arts – and wields his massive sword with grace, earning him the nicknames, Black Knight Kagura, or Black Gale.

If there were two things in the world he could not survive without, it would be alcohol and women. He's a man of gentle manners but is always in some way showing off. And it might seem like he constantly wavers in attitude and opinion, but he never forgets his own sense of justice when it's time to act.

The Mutsuki Family has been placed in charge of overseeing the Ikaruga Federation since the war came to an end. But that does not mean he enjoys it. Recently, he has begun to doubt the Imperator's methods of enforcing order upon people, and while being a member of her closest guards, the Praetorian Guards, he secretly plots a coup d'état.

To correct the wrongs in the world from the inside of the NOL, he resorts to drastic measures, reaching out to the NOL's sworn enemy, Kokonoe of Sector Seven.[7]

Simultaneously the head of the Duodecim’s Mutsuki family, the commander of the Praetorian Guard, and the highest-ranking officer in the NOL. He bears the names “Black Gale” and “Black Knight Kagura”, and his ability in battle is such that he can settle his surroundings with just a glance.[8]

BlazBlue Alternative: Dark War Official Profile

The Supreme Commander of the NOL's forces, and the current head of the Mutsuki family. With both the brains and the brawn to match it, he is a great swordsman that can assess any situation. Because of the jet-black greatblade he wields, many call him "The Black Knight" and "The Black Gale" in fear.

However, his downfall is his great weakness to both women and alcohol.[9]

Appearances in other Media

  • The mobile game, Mabinogi Duel, stars Kagura as a playable card.
  • The action-RPG Fallen Legion Revenants features a DLC in which the Exemplar Marius receives an outfit based on Kagura. This collaboration was likely made possible due to Arc System Works publishing the Japanese version.
