The Captain of the “Generation of Miracles”, he is one that has the “my way or the highway” attitude. He will look down on people who are weaker than him. He believes that basketball has more of an individual aspect than a team one. He often clashed with Kuroko about their ideals, almost making him quit. On the court, he controlled a strong court presence that could make a defender trip backwards or stop an offensive attack. People have coined this ability the “Emperor’s Eye” which almost gives him the title of king of basketball. He is one of the main antagonist as well as the final antagonist of the story.
