"Serial Firebug" Nikimaru (連続放火魔
Nikimaru was bald with hairy eyebrows and a beard. He wore a robe with cross patterns.
Nikimaru was shown to be a man who would rather take the easy way out, as shown when he tried to escape by attacking the guards than risk his life in a massacre. He also views women as being weak as he tried to attack Sagiri first.
Nikimaru, along with other criminals, were gathered together for a chance to be pardon of their crimes if they complete a task from the shogun. However, before any of them could go any further, they would have to reduce the numbers so that only a few remain for the mission. During the massacre, Nikimaru attempted to escape but was decapitated by Sagiri.
