Hero Overview

Ton, Tan, Tan...
~ Kyou Kai's Signature Dancing Chant.
O ancient darkness...primordial flame, what is it that lies...within your eyes? O bright light that splits the Heavens, rumbling tremors that shake the Earth, what pulse beats...withn your ears? Man walks adrift, a vessel of the Earth. I dance for thee, O God of Lightning! Ah...Ryoku Sui...Let blood boil over!
~ Kyou Kai's Dance Pray as she readies herself to fight Hou Ken, Kingdom v57.
I'm the same as you. I can't die in a place like this.
~ Kyou Kai to Shin

Kyou Kai is a deuteragonist and tritagonist in the popular historical seinen manga and anime series, Kingdom, the second lieutenant of the Hi Shin Army since their days as a fledging 100-Man Unit,  she is currently a Commander in the Qin Military and the leader of the eponymous named 5000-Man strong Kyou Kai Unit. She is one of the strongest individuals within the series due to her incredible genius as tactician as she once served the main source of strategy and tactical advice before Ten’s arrival, her inhuman abilities as a warrior with her being one of the strongest sword masters in the world, her skills easily outpacing Shin’s own, and her ability to empower her soldiers to fight on the harshest of battlefield (aside from being extremely beautiful). She is also one of the most dangerous threats of the next generation of military leaders as Ri Boku himself acknowledging her abilities and like Shin and his rivals Ou Hon and Mou Ten, she is determined in becoming a Great General underneath the Heavens as one of her new reasons to live after returning from her journey of vengeance against her hated archnemesis, Yuu Ren the Shiyuu and finally getting revenge for Kyou Shou, her late sister.

In the anime, she is voiced by Yōko Hikasa who provides the voices for Utahime Iori from Jujutsu Kaisen, Farnese De Vandimion from Berserk, Yoh Asakura from Shaman King 2021, Kyoko Kirigiri from Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, Diana Cavendish from Little Witch Academia, Emi Yusa from The Devil Is a Part-Timer!H/ataraku Maou-sama!.


Well, doesn't someone have a suprisingly pretty face.
~ Ten's envy on Kyou Kai's beauty.


Looks like you have emotions after all. Hehehe~
~ Shin to Kyou Kai

Kyou Kai is quiet woman, sometimes says very little or nothing unless she is giving out tactical advice to either Shin or Ten. While showing little care for them, Kyou Kai holds disdain for those who are clueless about her clan. As a trained assassin, Kyou Kai will not hesitate to kill anyone who gets in her way. Others who have seen her inhuman talent with the sword have called her a "monster" as she cuts down her opponents with ease. Since accomplishing her quest of vengeance, she has grown warmer towards her comrades as they find her more approachable now.




Said by Kyou Kai

Now...Let Us Dance, Ryoku Sui.
~ Kyou Kai as she enters her Priestess Dance during her duel with Hou Ken.
I have a plan.
~ One of Kyou Kai's signature quotes.
Remember, your opponent is just the chariot itself!
~ Kyou Kai to Shin during the Battle of Dakan Plains
The Wei soldiers will be even faster than normal since they're advancing down hill. Trying to push against that wave of momentum while running up hill will be unbelieveably punishing. In exchange, however we won't have to spend as much time fighting through them as usual.
~ Kyou Kai to the Baku Koshin Unit
That armor doesn't suit you at all.
~ Kyou Kai to Shin during their reunion.
As I thought, the place you belonged is on the battlefield. That sword of yours is most effective when under the sun's rays. That is why you should take care to not meddle in areas where the sun cannot reach you.
~ Kyou Kai's roundabout warning to Shin.
I understand, I'll leave right away...With King's head, that is.
~ Kyou Kai to Shin
What would someone like you...KNOW ABOUT ME!?
~ An angry Kyou Kai rebutting Shin.
~ Kyou Kai sighing after her exchanges with Shin.
So irritating. What legends claimed? What spreading of word? And I was even asked to teach someone...When I see all you people who are so curious about the Shiyuu...It Makes Me want to Kill every last one of you.
~ Kyou Kai expressing her angry to Ten.
You guys, run away immediately!! I cannot lose this place.
~ Kyou Kai telling the Hi Shin Unit to retreat from Hou Ken.

About Kyou Kai

...Y'know, you really are cute after all. Especially when you're smiling.
~ Shin to Kyou Kai
Kyou Kai...I thought he was just some quick thinking runt, he's damn good with a sword too...That bastard sure is keeping a lot of secrets.
~ Shin on Kyou Kai after seeing save Bi Hei.
It's true that Kyou Kai's a pretty quick thinker. But it wasn't until he unsheathed his sword that he really shocked everyone. I'm telling ya! Doesn't matter if you were Wei or Qin, everyone who saw him at that moment had the same thought through their heads. That Guy ain't Human!!
~ Bi Hei to his drinking party pals on Kyou Kai.
No matter how I look at it, you're suited to the Battlefield!! You shouldn't be spending your life skulking around the shadows as some shitty assassin!
~ Shin to Kyou Kai during their duel.
He ain't a Shiyuu!! Hes Kyou Kai, an Infantry Soldier of the Qin Army under General Duke Hyou, a part of commander Baku Koshin's unit in the 4th army! Hes Kyou Kai, my fellow sqaudmate!!
~ Shin to Heki and the members of the Ei Sei Faction as they try imprison her.
What did you say...? Kyou Kai is...A GIRL!!?
~ Shin to Sei
It's hardly anything to get worked up about.
~ Kyou Kai to Ten on her real gender.
You're my comrade who fought in the same squad against the Wei!! I've already included yo as one of the members of my hundred-man unit!! Which is why, when the next war comes, you'd better get your ass back here! You got that!?
~ Shin to Kyou Kai
