Shigen Naoe is one of the heroes in The Last Blade.


Shigen is a guardian of a portal called the “Hell’s Gate”. Before the events of the first game, he is magically sealed in a massive stone for ten years by his friend Shinnosuke Kagami who perceived him to be a threat in his plan for opening the Hell's Gate. He was eventually to escaped, but has clouded by his rage and anger, he can could only think of getting back at his captor. He set out to exact revenge.

By the events of The Last Blade 2, Shigen had regained his senses and remembered that he had a daughter. To atone for his ten year absence, he traveled to the mountains to spend time with her while training. During this timeframe, he noticed the evil aura that emanated from the opened “Hell’s Gate”. As one of its guardians, he must set out to close it, leaving his sleeping daughter in the darkness of night. However, he was initially unaware that his daughter knew of his departure and that she was following him at a distance.

There is a code that the player can enter at the character select screen so that when playing as Shigen, his daughter will appear instead of him as his intro before a match.

Shigen, along with Yuki, Gaisei, and Zantetsu are the only known characters to die after the events of The Last Blade 2.


Shigen was a calm man, always in touch with nature and with his family, but after he was sealed away, he lost his senses and emotions and became a berserker.

He was slowly recovering his emotions, and eventually recovered his joy in the time he spent with Kotetsu.
