Nichirin (ニチリン, Nichirin) is a swordmaster and member of the Council of Swordmasters.


His face is covered in wrinkles. His eyes appear to have been cut and are pure white.


Nichirin is a very stern individual.

History Edit

At some point in the past he trained Spring Mustache who became his one of his best disciples.


Human Monster SagaEdit

Monster Association ArcEdit

Kamikaze attends a meeting of the Council of Swordmasters. At the meeting Atomic Samurai asks the council members for help in catching and killing Garou in worries that Bang might fail and die. The council members agree, except Haragiri who mocks Atomic Samurai's plea. Haragiri proceeds to show them the Monster Cells and reveals he had received them from the Monster Association and transforms into a Mysterious Being himself. Nichirin threatens Haragiri, telling Haragiri that if he does not stop his nonsense he will have to get serious, but Haragiri arrogantly continues to ramble. Haragiri then orders the other to eat the cells or he will kill them, but Atomic Samurai cuts him first, killing him.

Abilities and PowersEdit

Nichirin is presumably a very powerful swords master.

Physical AbilitiesEdit

Immense Speed and Reflexes: Nichirin was the only one, besides Kamikaze, that was not afraid to face Haragiri after the swordmaster's transformation into a Mysterious Being.

Immense Strength: Nichirin asserts that he has the power of a thousand men.[1]

Fighting StyleEdit

Master Swordsman: Nichirin is a member of the Council of Swordmasters, so he has likely perfected the art of swordsmanship.




  • Nichirin (二チリン, Nichirin) literally means Sun Disk or the Sun.
  • Some speculate that the character and appearance of Nichirin are possibly based on Zatoichi.
