His hands are covered by black gloves with red padding on the palms and on the top.

Fighting Style:
“Speedstar” is a word to describe BYAKURAI. He’s agile, a very quick wrestler who uses that to his advantage. Through his arsenal are moves that keep his opponents off balance throughout a match. Along with his speed BYAKURAI is a gravity atheist, showing no grasp of the concept without his highflying arsenal. He’s always on his toes, and is always moving around so he can keep his opponent guessing.

The BYAKURAI mask has been worn by one man, Oda Yokohama. Throughout Japan the masked Dragon was a feared competitor. As the time began to age, Oda began to age as well. When that time game, Oda passed on legacy to his son, Kei, who donned the mask for him when he was a very young man. Kei traveled overseas West and began wrestling in companies and winning a few titles, before returning back to Japan to continue his career. Kei now BYAKURAI in his own right has come to FRONTLINE to fight!
