Anubis (鬼魔将・朱天童子 Ogre Demon General Shutendouji) is the former leader of the Dark Warlords. Once known as the Dark Warlord of Cruelty, Anubis broke free of the Dynasty's evil and succeeded the Ancient One as the Ronin Warrior's guide.

Appearance and PersonalityEdit


Anubis has red hair and blue eyes. While he is the Dark Warlord of Cruelty, he is solely seen in his armor and undergear. When he is freed from Talpa's control by the Ancient One, he starts wearing the robes of the ancient monk. Anubis' armor is dark gray and blue.

While working for the Dynasty, Anubis' ego and strength rivaled that of Kento's. There wasn't much respect between him and the other Warlords. In fact, Anubis was the most criticized about his failures. But as time goes on and he begins to understand the truth, he summons the courage to stand against Talpa. After deciding to follow the path of the Ancient One, Anubis spends much time meditating and does his best to make up for his past mistakes.


Early HistoryEdit

Anubis was a soldier during the era of civil wars. He was power hungry and desired nothing more than to control everything. Sensing his cruel heart, Talpa appeared before him and made him the Dark Warlord of Cruelty.

Armor and PowersEdit


Anubis attacks!

The Armor of Cruelty, or the Armor of the Ogre, is a representation of the Spring season. It draws it's evil power from dark thoughts and the excess energy it absorbs. The design is similar to the Elemental armors rather than the other three Season armors. It's weapon is a kusari-gama, which is a scythe connected to a clawed weight by a metal chain. It's specialty attack is Ko Rai Sei (which translates as "Red Lightning," but is changed to "Quake with Fear" in the English dub). In the middle of the season, his helmet is destroyed, revealing that Talpa's commanding warriors were in fact humans. Following this revelation, Anubis never appeared with his helmet equipped again, save for two instances in which it vanished as quickly as it appeared.
