"Relaaaaax, relax. You'll never wake up again after this!"
— Reiji in Bloody Roar 4

Reiji is a fictional character from the Bloody Roar series. His beast form is the Crow as his surname the "Yatagarasu" refers.

He appears in the fourth edition of the series.


Bloody Roar 4

Deep in the mountains, there are four clans of fighting monks known as the 'Yatagarasu'. Within these clans, the power of the beast transformation is passed down, though it is sealed until the inheritor is judged an adult. However, one of the heirs to the families, Reiji, had his seal broken prematurely before the coming of age ceremony because of the crest/tabula incident (Bloody Roar 3). Reiji, who deep down harbored destructive tendencies, used these new found powers and killed his father, a member of the four clans, and fled the temple. Reiji went out in search of strong Zoanthropes, finding great pleasure in killing a powerful opponent, though now he is on the run from the remaining Yatagarasu who pursue him.

Reiji is disappointed with his battle against the dragon. His thoughts drift upon the dragon and the Unborn, unhappy that his life was controlled to have such worthless dealings with. Mana kneels over Ryoho, sadly apologizing to him for being so weak. Reiji tells her to stop sniveling. Mana cowers in his presence. Then, Reiji's rivals from the Yatagarasu arrive. He seems pleased to see the three as he asks if they want to play and their defeat will stay in his mind forever. He transforms and attacks them.



Reiji is cocky and devious. He likes to insult people at every chance he gets and disregards everyone as being weaker than himself. His brashness and cruel attitude make him very much the antagonistic force that he is.
