Okada portrait 2


Tset is a character from the fifth timeline of Everybody Wants to Rule the World. He is an ancient swordsman from an unnamed world, although it is likely the same one as Soryūshi Ryuka, as she recognized his name. While he does wish to become the greatest swordsman to ever live, in more recent times he has adopted a more casual attitude towards this goal, merely progressing at the rate that lifes allows him. This is, however, likely to change with his current predicament in the new and unknown world with highly advanced technology and magic he has found himself in.

Having began himself in the middle of a jungle in Brazil, not after being teleported to some void as with everyone else, Tset soon found and made an acquaintence with Soryūshi Ryuka. After a short spar with the latter, and finding a few more people from the void, Tset and some others ended up battling a "Demon" that appeared out of a phone owned by Villager A. After killing it and several others, with slight assistance from a mysterious knight later revealed to be Telos, him and the others ended up battling the knight, seemingly meeting his standards before he left.

Shortly after, Tset found himself in a city and was directed to the residence of Heteka Kino. Almost immediately after having some parts of the status of this world explained, he and the others from the void were captured by the ACF. After rather quickly escaping from their cells, Demons seemingly overwhelmed the site in which they were held, forcing them to find the heart of the corruption. This proved to be Charlie, one of the people from the void who ended up joining the "Demons." After gaining new powers and rapidly dispatching the Demons that were with Charlie, the latter was killed by Telos, who was badly injured. At this point, Telos seemingly started fighting seriously, becoming vastly stronger than most others and gaining use of his "Obverse", even eventually warping causality. Tset, meanwhile, simply observed him before waiting for the chance to take him out in a single attack, due to discerning the function of Obverse. Despite his use of Ittou Rasetsu, this seemed to have failed, although Telos was immediately killed by a fusion between Ryuka and Magnus Jee-Mori, much to Tset's disappointment.

After being quickly resuscitated by Villager A and Nanaya, Tset, after asking Heteka, headed out to an ACF facility in hopes of gaining whatever information they have on the demons or simply combat in general. After easily sneaking in, he fought an armored person for a few moments, before they told him that there were new orders given and gave him the information he originally came for, which wasn't very notable outside of the fact that the demons have rapidly evolved and become far stronger while he was gone in addition to losing contact with their agents on the moon. Tset, Ryuka, and Luminaris quickly head to the moon, finding it filled to the brim with demons, and, after entering a cave and quickly being thrown right back out, they decide that they need time to prepare.

Meanwhile, several others were sent to New Delhi, which had been almost entirely replaced with disguised demons by this point along with most of India, to hunt demons before Heteka was able to get her tracking device to detect the recently-evolved demons. These new demons prove to be significantly stronger than before, but still not a huge threat to most of the group. By the time Tset and Luminaris have returned, since Ryuka went to Mumbai to learn about the world's history, a massive demon that dwarfed the remains of New Delhi had appeared and they were instructed to lure it to a dry lakebed, at which point a black hole created from an orbiting station destroys it while the group destroys the remains

Standard Equipment: Abstract Katana, Monohoshi Zao, his Device Intetsu, a rapier, and a Hive Cleaver

  • Hakutō Hari: Like the other Deviant Blades, Hakutō Hari was forged using a combination of centuries-old blacksmithing techniques, alchemical research, occult rituals, and even scientific methods far ahead of the series's timespan, making use of Shikizaki Kiki's soothsaying abilities. Hakutō Hari's focus is "lightness", and consists of a long, curved blade made of an extremely thin, mystical material resembling blue glass. The blade can be swung entirely without resistance, as though the wielder is holding nothing at all, but is so incredibly fickle that making even the slightest accidental movement while it is unsheathed will shatter it.

Intelligence: Supergenius (Even at his absolute weakest state, he was already at the pinacle of what could be achieved using any sort of weapon and was capable of performing outright supernatural feats through skill alone, and was able to predict someone's individual cellular movements and complex thoughts over the course of an entire battle. Capable of creating phenomena on par with certain applications of True Magic and the Second Magic, namely in the form of Tsubame Gaeshi which distorts causality and physics to attack thrice simultaineously in such a manner that not even the gods could escape. Superior to Nanami Yasuri, who's instictive movements are ludicrously superior to anything achieveable even with Perfection, including Perfection to the degree of Sabi Hakuhei who is well above the standard for that state, and possess 0 superfluous motion, down to microscopic, and likely even nanoscopic, scales, and whom could replicate and perfect Ninpou, supernatural abilities limited to generational lineages, after seeing it in use twice through skill alone, and can even do so to physiology-based abilities. Replicated Nanaya's Eagle Sense, which is the precognitive sixth sense used by the Isu to accurate predict events thousands of years in the future and keep track of several alternate futures. Capable of instantly grasping someone's personality, identity, abilities, history, and even future perfectly, allowing him to predict everything they could possibly do in any situation. Can drastically improve his abilities and even create new ones simply by visualizing them within his head, with the visualizations being so vivid and realistic that they possess a physical presense in the world and can actually harm him. His instictive movements allow him to use his abilities against beings he cannot even percieve and utilize said abilities itself to make the absolute perfect movement for any particular situation or combatant. Against someone who has reached Completion, the advantage of superior numbers, strength, range, skill, or abilities is utterly irrelevant, as every single attribute of both weapon and wielder is instantly analyzed, replicated, and countered to such a degree that not even Nanami's perfected techniques, which have been enhanced to the point that even countless generations of training and improvement of the technique will never even begin to reach them, are tame in comparision)

Standard Tactics:

Usually opens with Hakutou Kaigen spam, but will switch to other attacks if his information analysis says that they'll be more effective. Favors attacks like Benda if blunt force is required.

Tends to open with Hakutou Kaigen spam, but usually follows what his analytical and predictive abilities tell him to. More than willing to end a fight quickly with something like Ittou Rasetsu if there is no other option.

More or less just does whatever his abilities tell him to, which is only drastically strengthened by his instictive movements being as powerful as they are. More willing than usual to use techniques like Ittou Rasetsu due to his regeneration making the downsides practically nonexistent.

Weaknesses: None Notable | Tsubame Gaeshi can only be used effectively on even ground, Trackless Step only works until Tset attacks someone affected by it due to them registering him as important, and Ittou Shura and Rasetsu are extremely tiring to use | Tsubame Gaeshi can only be used effectively on even ground and he is somewhat obsessed with killing, although whether this is a weakness or not is debatable

Notable Attacks/Techniques: Possesses the combined powers, skill, and experience of Sabi Hakuhei, Miyamoto Musashi, Koujirou Sasaki, Ikki Kurogane, a basic Knight, and Genesis Rhapsodos, as well as Hanma Yujiro's skill, Ginkaku Uneri's Zantou Gari, Unlimited Blade Works, Chevalier d'Eon's Fleur de Lys, Shichika Yasuri's Completion, and Ikki Kurogane's Desperado state

  • Shockwaves: Tset is able to swing a weapon in such a way that by passing through the air with zero resistance, it can produce incredibly sharp shockwaves of air that travel great distances at incredible speed. Tset can even send these shockwaves behind him with the slightest twitch of his sword.
  • Bakushukuchi: (Explode Contract Ground) A movement technique used at the start of a battle to increase his speed and kill the opponent before they can react. Noted by Shichika to be a more flexible form of footwork than his own Kyotoryuu: Iris.
  • Gyakuten Muzai: A technique in which Tset attacks with the sword and sheath together. It was by learning this technique that Sabi, it's original user, gained the title of "Holy Swordsman".
  • Sokuchiken: (Fast Slow Sword) A technique that allows Tset to freely change the length of his sword, making it impossible even for Shichika's precognition to predict the range or timing of his swings. This ability is explicitly not an attribute of Hakutō Hari, as he could use this technique with any sword.
  • Hakutou Kaigan: Described as Hakuhei's "true masterpiece", a secret technique only made possible by the unique attributes of Hakutō Hari, which Shichika called "the true horror of a swordsman", and was later utilized extensively by Tset. Implied to consist of Sokuchiken being used in conjunction with Hakutō Hari's lightness to maximize his potential range while still being light enough to wield with precision. It is rumored that, with this ability, Hakuhei could potentially slice the moon or the sun in half. While Hakuhei's version is never witnessed onscreen, a far inferior user's version consisted of him blurring out of sight, then reappearing above the opponent's head and swinging downwards, though he failed to inflict any damage on Shichika due to lacking both Sokuchiken and Sabi Hakuhei's perfect movements.

  • Zantou Gari: Originally Ginkaku's trump card. By slashing through his own shoulder and spilling his blood down the sword's sheathe, he removes all friction between the sheath and his blade, drastically enhancing the speed at which he can move his sword. As he damages his opponents, and thus gets more blood on the blade, his speed continually increases.

  • Aiki: Aiki is a Japanese martial arts principle or tactic in which the defender blends (without clashing) with the attacker, then goes on to dominate the assailant through the strength of their application of internal dynamics or Ki energy to affect techniques
  • Analysis: By looking at someone, Yujiro and Tset can, with 100% accuracy, detect any weakness, vital point, injury, or ailment that they have down to a cellular level.
  • Defensive Xiao-Lee: The user makes their body go completely limp, causing it to move like a blade of grass would during a storm, which absorbs damage received by attacks.
  • Offensive Xiao-Lee: The damage absorbed by Defensive Xiao-Lee can be redistributed back to the opponent by using this technique.

Noble Phantasm

  • Fleur de Lys: Sword Dance of Falling Lillies: d'Eon's primary Noble Phantasm and the sublimation of their devotion to the sword and their numerous acts of deception in the name of the French Royal Family, which was later inherited by Tset. It is a beautiful sword dance which completely fascinates the beholder, lowering the target's strength, endurance, and agility. d'Eon then takes that chance to deliver a fatal strike to their opponent, making this an attack on both the target's mind and body although the latter will only happen once. It is an incredibly cost-efficient Noble Phantasm as it requires little more than the mana needed for d'Eon or Tset to perform their usual, dazzling swordplay, and its mental and status effects persist a short while after the technique's completion.
  • Fleur de Lys: Gorgeous Splendor of Blooming Lilies: The second version of d'Eon's beautiful sword dance which completely fascinates the beholders and impresses the white lily in the viewers's minds, lowering the strength, durability, and agility of all those who see the dance. Furthermore, if d'Eon or Tset succeeds a Luck check, the targets will be left completely unable to act as they had been mesmerized by d'Eon's movements.
  • Fleur de Lys: Profusion of Hundred Flowers, Dance of Lilies: d'Eon's way of life that has been sublimated into a Noble Phantasm. It is a more potent version to the second version of d'Eon's sword dance, "Gorgeous Splendor of Blooming Lilies". This Noble Phantasm is normally hidden as d'Eon or Tset normally cannot utilize it due to it requiring them to expand all of their mana inside their being to do this. They stated that fifty people at most are what they can normally be able to affect when using Gorgeous Splendor of Blooming Lilies, but it is through this version of their dance will d'Eon and Tset be able to affect as many as hundreds to even thousands of targets at once, effectively allowing them a large group of this scale to be unable to act any further.

Class Skills

  • Presence Concealment: The capacity to hide one's presence as a Servant. It is a common skill to the Assassin class. Suitable for spying, though low enough that other Servants would easily detect him if he was nearby. He does not have it by virtue of being an Assassin, but it is an intrinsic ability of his as a martial artist that allows him to cut himself off from the world.

Personal Skills

  • Desperado: Ikki, and now Tset, are beings who have transcended the fate of the world, as such they can ignore limits set to them by fate and control their own fate. This makes them immune to all abilities based on the "causation" system in the series and furthermore destroys their "fate". It was stated that beings who have transcended the fate of the world do not have a fate anymore and can just do things on their own free will as shown when Kurono Shinguuji could have become a desperado, but refused to do so because that would destroy her future with her husband.
    • Empowerment: It is explained that a Blazers' magic power is determined by birth and wouldn't increase no matter the amount of training, as such those with greater magical power like Stella has a far greater role in the world than those with far weaker magic such as Ikki. Whenever a Blazer reaches the limit of their potential, as shown by Ikki, black chains appear around them, which Edelweiss elaborated as being far as the world would allow them to proceed. However, Desperados are beings who exist outside of fate and as such are able to raise the upper limit of their original magic power as shown by Ikki who gained magic power greater than before. Having stepped outside of their original fate, Desperados exists between the boundary of a human and demon.
    • Concept Manipulation: After reaching desperado Blazers become capable of manipulating certain concepts, for Ikki it was stated that his Oikage, after he became a desperado, turned him into the concept of "Slash". He used this to cut through Stella and Iris' armor which manipulated the concept of "Indomitable".
  • The Seven Secret Swords: The Secret Swords are seven sword techniques, which Ikki Kurogane had created, and Tset later inherited, in order to make up for his lack of magic and just focused training in swordsmanship and martial arts. He has revealed a number of these secret swords in battles against other Blazers during the Seven Stars Sword Art Festival Selection Matches. At first, a lot of his secret swords relied on using his Ittou Shura and wouldn't have work overwise, however, using Blade Steal to "steal" Edelweiss' Swordsmanship, Ikki became able to utilize his various secret swords without needing to use his limited Noble Art. Although they are sigle techniques, Ikki has shown to be able to combine techniques together.
    • Saigeki: A charging and anti-material technique, where Tset uses his arm strength, leg strength, and charging power combined with his superhuman body control; focusing all the vectors of his power at the point of his sword, thus granting the highest offensive power among his secret swords. 
    • Rekkou: A point-black slash, where Tset uses the bodies' lower torque in order to strike his opponent after blocking their attack.
    • Madoka: Tset receives an attack, taking the power, then he rotates himself around as if making a circle, then sends it back as a counter. Madoka has shown to be a useful technique against more powerful opponents such as Ouma and Stella. In the finals match of the Seven Stars Sword Art Festival, it has been evolved to where Ikki doesn't even require to spin himself around anymore, he instead uses his broad back muscles to transfer the force into his next attacks. Stella stated that in order for this to happen, his muscles had to be as loose as jelly, even looser than normal, this is dangerous as even a moment of stiffness would result in his muscles to explode from the force being redirected.
    • Shinkirou: Using radical footwork, Tset creates an afterimage before himself while running to confuse his opponent, then vanish like a mirage after being struck.
    • Kuruizakura: A sword attack with a delayed effect using slashes with certain force and mechanisms to create wounds that won't open until later on.
    • Dokuga-no-Tachi: From his feet to his fingers, Tset has all his muscles work together to create shock waves, then the moment that it comes into contact with their weapon or armor, then transmitted into them causing numbness in their muscles forcing them to drop their weapons and even affecting internal organs.
      • Ikki has shown to be able to use Rekkou, which was powered with the effects of Donkuga-no-Taichi to release a counterattack which attacks the internal organs.
    • Raikou: The fastest among his secret sword technique, where Ikki perform a sword swing at such speed that it exceeds ones' dynamic vision making it appear as if it were an invisible slash.
      • Final secret sword, Oikage: Oikage is a technique Ikki had developed after his seven secret sword techniques in the final of the Seven Stars Sword Art Festival to defeat Stella, thus making it his final secret sword technique. Oikage is a battoujutsu, which doesn't a sheath as his Intetsu doesn't have one, instead, Ikki uses his hand in a manner that similar to a sheath and does so after first using his Ittou Rasetsu, afterward unleashes a slash that moves at extreme speeds to the point where his shadow was unable to keep up and is described as being the concept of a slash. Oikage is stated to be the peak that other people have attempted to reach.
  • Insight: As a result of being neglected over the years, Ikki has mastered the skills to see through his opponent's techniques by observation. He can read his opponent's next move simply through their muscle movement. Ikki and Tset's insight has even allowed him to properly sense how dangerous someone really is on the first meeting, such as being able to tell that Amane Shinomiya was more dangerous than he appeared, something few others notice.
    • Blade Steal: Blade Steal is a technique that Ikki Kurogane had created, which lets him "steal" someone else's swordsmanship due to no one wanting to teach him anything. He is able to use his incredible insight to trace the roots of any style he sees, thus letting him grasp a styles techniques despite not seeing it performed in front of him as shown when he was able to uses Ten'i Muhou through helping Ayase Ayatsuji improve her swordsmanship. Through the use of his Blade Steal, he is able to grasp ones' sword style in a rather short amount of time (stated he could completely understand everything about a sword style, including all secret techniques which he may have never seen in one minute) as well as find their flaws, then Ikki or Tset is able to perfect them creating a superior version. The perfection takes a considerably shorter amount of time, he stated it took him only 30 seconds to perfect Stella's Imperial Sword Style.
      • Perfect Vision: The improved version of Blade Steal, Ikki and Tset are able to see through their opponent's moves by fully grasping their fighting style, using their incredible insight to fully understand the opponent's personality and tendencies. Through this, it is possible to figure out their thought processes and as a result, they are able to predict their moves and attacks in advance. It's as though they can see everything about the person in question. The idea behind this is instead of stealing the sword style he "steals" the identity of someone, learning everything about them. The true horror of Perfect Vision is shown during its first use against Kirihara, where Ikki states that no matter what, Perfect Vision cannot be fooled. If Ikki uses Perfect Vision, even trying to act out of character, use moves you've never done before, lie even if it's not something you would do etc, it still will not break Perfect Vision, because as Ikki states "Everything you do, including acting out of character or introducing new moves, stems from identity", as such it is impossible to break out of Perfect Vision.
  • Edelweiss' Swordplay: After his initial encounter with Edelweiss through the use of his Blade Steal, Ikki was able to utilize her swordsmanship at the last moment before he passed out. Due to the nature of Edelweiss' swordplay, it boosted his speed to where the former Seven Star Sword King, Yuudai Moroboshi couldn't even react though he heard the attacks and sensed Ikki. Ikki and Tset can also use Edelweiss' technique for other purposes then swordsmanship, such as restarting their heart after it has stopped. It was said by Edelweiss herself that Ikki has begun to make her swordplay his own, adapting it to fit him. Edelweiss' swordplay is also invisible even to Ikki and Tset, though Ikki still managed to copy it and use it's traits to use the Seven secret swords even without Ittou Shura, furthermore the style ignores energy reduction from hitting the atmosphere, by attacking in a certain way so that the attacks themselves are silent due to not hitting air.
  • Block: Ikki, and later Tset, has shown to be impecable in terms of blocking attacks, even from far more powerful sources like Stella who stated that blocking her sword would turn his bones to ash due to being much stronger than him by blocking in such a manner that he would not suffer injuries even after taking several attacks from her. Stella stated that 1 small miscalculation would completely ruin the block and he would receive the full force of the attack.
    • Energy Dispersion: During the Seven Stars Sword Art Festival, Ikki shows a certain type of block where he can make the energy of the attack flow through his entire body without actually damaging it. This proves to be useful as it allows him to invalidate the force of Stella's attacks. 
    • Irregular Block: Due to needing to be focused on attacks, Ikki and Tset can be left vulnerable to attacks by not being able to bring their sword back in time before the attack lands. Due to this Ikki has learned a way to be always able to block. Irregular Block allows him to block attacks in bizzare manner, like between the gap in the way he handles his sword, the back of the handle, the tip of the sword etc. Due to this parrying, blocking, or getting Ikki off balance was never sufficient to make him unable to block. He did something similar against Ayase Ayatsuji where she managed to wound him using her style, get him on his knees then release "a rain of sword attacks" which Ikki managed to block each and every one of them, not letting a single hit in even though Ayase's tactic was to attack him while he was in a bizarre position to block.

  • Wall of Darkness: Tset raises his hand and summons a large shield made of shadows that is impervious to harm.
  • Berserk Mode: When near death, Tset enters an enraged state, increasing his physical strength and regenerating some health.
  • Searing Flames: Tset stomps on the ground, causing a large surrounding area to burn any who it touches.

  • Kyotōryū: The martial art utilized by Shichika, his sister, and Tset, created by and named after the rebel who fathered the former. The fighting style revoles around the practice of training and honing the user's body in such a way that the user needs not wield any sort of weapon, becoming capable of replicating the effects of any sword with their own movements.

    The martial art also involves the extensive conditioning of one's mind, facilitated by the Yasuri family's genetic curse and Shikizaki Kiki's dabbling in the occult. A Kyotōryū user's mind, emotions, and morality do not function like those of a human, instead they think, feel, and live as a weapon. In practice, this means that the only person capable of influencing their behavior is the one they have arbitrarily chosen as their "wielder", and no form of manipulation, bribes, mind control, possession, or other factors can be used against them.

    A Kyotōryū user also possesses an intrinsic connection with all other weapons, allowing them to see "sword pressure", an aura possessed by all weapons. Viewing this aura allows one to sense the presence of nearby weapons and see their attributes, as well as predict what their wielder will have them do next. As martial arts can be described as making oneself into a weapon, those who have mastered any unarmed fighting style can be viewed and analyzed to a lesser extent, with those who pose a significant enough threat to the Kyotōryū user having a "sharp" aura.
    • Kyotōryū Seventh Hidden Art: Scattered Blossoms: A flying downward axe kick that splits the opponent's innards vertically down the middle and slams them into the ground. Used to exploit the opponent's blind spots. Post-Completion, damage from this move can kill immortal existences by forcibly freeing their soul from its vessel and sending it directly to the afterlife, which can occur even if they are simply in the vicinity of this move's usage, rather than directly struck.
    • Kyotōryū's Fourth Secret Technique: Ryuuryoku Kakou: A powerful punch just above the sternum, releasing a shockwave which passes through barriers and hits whichever layer Shichika is aiming for. Capable of bypassing armor and skin to strike the organs directly, or hitting objects behind the target without damaging their body.
    • Kyotōryū "Red Poppy" and "Daphne" Hybrid Striking Technique: Thousands of piercing strikes from the fingertips, performed at such speeds that they are invisible to the naked eye and kill the opponent 272 times before they have finished reacting to the initial movement. By simultaneously inflicting so much death, Kyotōryū users can even kill immortal opponents with this move.
  • Completion: The state that Shikizaki Kiki hoped one of his creations would achieve, representing the status of one who has "far surpassed perfection". As the Completed Deviant Blade, Shichika and Tset represent and surpass the pinnacle of what can theoretically be achieved using martial arts, swordsmanship, and weaponry. Emonzaemon states that against such a being, the advantage of superior numbers becomes irrelevant. Every weapon attribute, martial art, technique, and wielder he encounters is analyzed and understood instantly by his Kyotōryū sixth sense, granting him its usage and the perfect counter technique, even making it possible to evolve previously perfected techniques to accomplish more than they had prior, as shown when he instantly created a new form of Shichika Hachiretsu that could be used on two enemies simultaneously, and immediately informing him of singular weaknesses that he didn't know of prior, such as Zokuto Yoroi's inability to redirect attacks without touching the ground.

  • Perfect Sense: Due to replicating Nanaya's Eagle Sense, Tset is capable of applying all of his usual analytical abilities to things that only exist within the past and future. While he initially noted that the sheer amount of information this was giving him was nearly overwhelming, he seems to have overcome this and can readily use it as an Isu or Assassin would, casually predicting events from the far, far future. Due to his abilities, he can even, while searching through someone's memories or past history, start doing so to someone within their memories, as though Tset had been doing it to them initially.
