One Piece Wiki

For the chapter with her alias, see Chapter 1041.

Kozuki Hiyori[7] is the daughter of the late Kozuki Oden and Kozuki Toki and the younger sister of Kozuki Momonosuke.[8][9]

To hide her identity, Hiyori became known as Komurasaki,[10] working as an oiran of the tayu (太夫, tayū?) rank, the highest of all.[2] However, after she angered Kurozumi Orochi, Denjiro (in his disguise as Kyoshiro) staged a killing of Komurasaki in order to keep Hiyori safe.[11][9] She is the one who gave her late father's legendary sword Enma to Roronoa Zoro in exchange for Shusui.

After Kaidou was defeated in the Raid on Onigashima, she revealed to Wano that she was still alive as well as her true identity. Hiyori now lives in the Flower Capital with her brother after he became the new Shogun. She is also the caretaker of Toko.

Hiyori is a supporting ally of the Straw Hat Pirates during the Wano Country Saga.


Hiyori is a slim woman of average height who holds a strong resemblance to her mother with long turquoise hair that reaches her waist, blue eyes that are distinctively slanted at a downward angle and she wears fuchsia lipstick on her prominent lips.[12]

She is considered the most beautiful woman in all of Wano where her beauty is so unfathomably great that people can barely look directly at her. Her looks alone are enough to make people faint, go blind and suffer severe blood loss via nose bleeds.[2]

As Komurasaki, she wore geta to make her look very tall. Her hair was extremely adorned with multiple flowers and pins attached to it. She wore an extremely opulent red furisode kimono that sparkles in the sunlight with the sleeve adorned with a peacock and flowers on it. She also had red-painted fingernails.[12][13] She also wears a kitsune fox mask while playing the shamisen so people, and especially Kurozumi Orochi, cannot see her crying in grief and rage.[14]

After leaving the Flower Capital, Hiyori left most of her hair down with her bangs covering her forehead while some of her hair is held up by pins in an elaborate bun behind her head. She took out most of its adornments except for one on each side of her head shaped like a pink rose with a gold dangler. She also stopped wearing her outer garment, wearing a pink furisode kimono with purple flower designs along the sleeves and the bottom. She also removed her red nail polish off her fingers.[9]

She had a bob cut when she was six.[15]

If I believe I am right about something, then there is no reason for me to back down.
— Hiyori's pride.

Hiyori Restrains Herself

Hiyori refuses to cry for joy at the thought of reuniting with her brother.

Hiyori is a very proud woman who is unwilling to back down or show vulnerability in front of others. She claims that this is due to being a daughter of a samurai. This is true even in the face of authority, being unafraid of standing up to and even attacking the shogun Kurozumi Orochi despite the heavy consequences.[14] Because of her pride, she refuses to cry at the thought of reuniting with her older brother, stating that as the daughter of a samurai, she must not cry.[16]

During her guise as Komurasaki, Hiyori appeared to be a greedy and materialistic woman, as well as a good manipulator. After successfully swindling her victims, she treated them very coldly without any compassion or remorse, saying that she despises the poor.[12] However, it was later revealed that the men she swindled were guilty of highly immoral acts and she passed all the money she swindled to Denjiro for him to distribute to the poor citizens of Wano rather than keeping it for herself.[17]

Hiyori Breaks Down Crying

Hiyori cries over Yasuie's death.

In reality, Hiyori is an extremely kind and compassionate woman who is kind to those she is close to, such as her kamuro Toko [2] and she was appalled when Kurozumi Orochi attempted to attack her, given that she is a child.[14] She is deeply sympathetic towards the many citizens of Wano who had been cruelly oppressed by Orochi and Kaidou. She broke down crying uncontrollably after Shimotsuki Yasuie was executed.[18]

Despite her kindness, Hiyori has the desire to kill Orochi as she is not afraid to get her hands dirty.

While being chased by Kamazo, Hiyori let go of her prideful attitude, pleading for Roronoa Zoro to help her and Toko.[19] She is very gracious as she was extremely grateful to Zoro for saving her and made good on her offer to feed him in return. She can be rather careless and timid.[9]

She can be a tease, asking Zoro if he was happy to be sleeping with her.[20]

Hiyori has a deep love for her country as she is willing to give up her father Kozuki Oden's heirloom Enma to Zoro in exchange for Wano's national treasure Shusui in order to return it to the country. Before Kawamatsu and Zoro left to rejoin their comrades to overthrow Kaidou and Orochi, Hiyori sincerely bowed to the two, requesting them to do their best in saving Wano from their tyranny.

Hiyori loved music, having enjoyed playing the shamisen since childhood.

According to Kin'emon, she was a tomboy when she was a child and was quite insolent and brash, a trait she inherited from her father when he was young. Momonosuke stated that Hiyori liked to act tough, but she was quite a crybaby. Even as an adult, Hiyori retained some of her childish personality when she dropkicked her brother, Momonosuke.

In her role as Komurasaki, Hiyori used speech patterns typically associated with oiran: She ended most of her sentences with "de-arinsu" (でありんす?), a polite expression meaning "to be", and used the first-person pronouns wachiki (わちき) or achiki (あちき).[12][21] After abandoning the Komurasaki identity, she drops the verbal tic and switches to the neutral pronoun watashi (私).[9]




Oden and Toki with an Infant Hiyori

Hiyori as an infant with her parents.

Hiyori loved her parents dearly and she became so traumatized by their deaths that she never spoke again for a long period of time. Hiyori is deeply respectful towards her father Kozuki Oden as a samurai. Hiyori believed that as his daughter, she must not shame her father so she refused to live a submissive life. Even when threatened with death, Hiyori strongly refused to bow to Kurozumi Orochi, her father's archenemy and murderer.

Oden also reciprocated Hiyori's love and respect and upon his death bequeathed to Hiyori one of his swords, Enma. According to Kozuki Sukiyaki, part of the reason Hiyori is willing to give Enma to Roronoa Zoro is due to seeing Oden's image in Zoro's abilities as a swordsman.

Kozuki Momonosuke

Momonosuke and Hiyori Childhood

Momonosuke and Hiyori playing.

As siblings, Hiyori cares deeply for her elder brother Kozuki Momonosuke as she was searching for him for 20 years.[9] Hiyori was very excited to hear from Roronoa Zoro that Momonosuke is still alive and learns that he kept the promise she doubted years ago. Hiyori even excitedly questioned how he was doing but decided to wait until after Kurozumi Orochi was defeated to reunite.[22] As a child, she often performed drop kicks on Momonosuke as a prank. Momonosuke also respected Hiyori's decision to relinquish one of their father's swords, Enma, to Zoro. When he was about to be executed by Kaidou, Momonosuke's only regret was not being able to reunite with his sister.

After Momonosuke became the new shogun of Wano, Hiyori is moved with tears by her elder brother's speech right before she tearfully embraced him.[23] Despite this, Hiyori still has some of her childish personality as she still preferred to dropkick Momonosuke as a way of teasing him.[24]



Hiyori and Toko

Toko is Hiyori's closest friend and confidant.

While Hiyori was the oiran Komurasaki, Toko served as her kamuro. Hiyori is very affectionate with her as she was worried when the latter went off to try Sanji's famous soba without informing her.[2] She tried to defend Toko from Kurozumi Orochi when the shogun tried to kill her for laughing at him. This led to Komurasaki getting "killed" by Kyoshiro. Hiyori tried to protect Toko again when Orochi sent an assassin after her and fled the Flower Capital with her.

Toko is also the only person who knows the truth about Hiyori and her lineage. Her cheerful and bright personality helped Hiyori to push forward.[25] When Toko received news of her father's impending execution, Hiyori immediately ran after the frantic girl out of concern for her safety.[26] After Wano was freed from the Beasts Pirates' control, Toko was allowed to move back to the Flower Capital where the two can live happily together.[27]


Kawamatsu's Kappa Dance

Kawamatsu, Hiyori's savior and protector.

As one of the retainers of Kozuki Oden, Kawamatsu became Hiyori's guardian after the death of her parents where Kawamatsu did everything he could to raise Hiyori and make her happy after she was deeply traumatized, including dancing and telling jokes to cheer her up. Hiyori has immense respect and gratitude towards Kawamatsu for his care and wished to reunite with him again before she finally smiled again after so long.[28] However, Hiyori left Kawatmatsu as he was risking too much to take care of her, believing that it would be her fault if he ended up dying.

After reuniting with him after many years, they were extremely overjoyed to see each other again with Hiyori crying tears of joy.[29] Although she was somewhat annoyed that he still treated her like a child.[30] Also, she ignored his protest of not allowing Roronoa Zoro to have Enma.[31]


As a member of the Nine Red Scabbards, Denjiro is one of the most loyal retainers of Hiyori's father Kozuki Oden. When Hiyori met Denjiro while he was under the guise of "Kyoshiro", he was tearfully happy to see her alive and revealed his true identity to her. After learning about what happened with Kawamatsu, he took on the role as her second guardian and raised her, grooming her into geisha. In order to do so, he advised Hiyori to adopt the name he thought up for her "Komurasaki" to keep herself safe and hidden from the Beasts Pirates and Kurozumi Orochi.[32]

Hiyori is also the only one who is aware of Denjiro's secret identity as the chivalrous thief Ushimitsu Kozo as she would give the money she swindled from corrupt men to Denjiro for him to secretly distribute to the poor. She was briefly worried and shocked when Brook claimed that Ushimitsu Kozo was captured by the authorities. During Orochi's banquet at the Flower Capital, Hiyori angered the shogun and Denjiro had to fake her death (as she carried a blood pouch inside her clothes) in what looks like a samurai's mercy and to prevent her from being married to Orochi.[14] He would later save her again at Onigashima when Orochi tried to kill her after she revealed her true identity to him.[33]

Roronoa Zoro

Roronoa Zoro is Hiyori's third savior and protector after Kawamatsu and Denjiro. When he rescued her from Kamazo, Hiyori was deeply awed by his strength that she healed his injuries and thanked him, speaking to him in a grateful manner.[9] After learning her name, Zoro reveals to her that her older brother Kozuki Momonosuke is alive, indicating that he believes her.[34]

Hiyori has also shown to trust Zoro very much, revealing her own identity to him, sleeping on top of him during a cold night and remaining with him after being chased by the Oniwabanshu. After learning that he had Shusui, Hiyori respectfully asked him to return it to its resting place, and offered her father's sword, Enma, a legendary blade that wounded Kaidou, as a replacement. She did not question him on how Shusui came to his possession, nor did she accuse him of its thievery, while offering Enma as replacement despite Kawamatsu's protest, furthering her trust in Zoro.[31] While Zoro was unconscious from the raid on Onigashima, Hiyori cleansed him and later asked Zoro if it was exciting for him.[35]


Kurozumi Orochi

Komurasaki Slaps Orochi

Hiyori slapping Orochi for trying to kill Toko.

Hiyori feels immense hatred and disgust for Kurozumi Orochi as he was one of the main ones, along with Kaidou, responsible for the death of her father Kozuki Oden. She was upset at how he had tricked her father into making a fool of himself, only to betray him and wrongfully execute him in the end.[36] Likewise, she hated him for his extreme cruelty, where he had brought misery to the poor people of Ebisu by feeding them defective SMILEs, so they couldn't express their sadness and pain even when in mourning. Through tears she said that it was the most heinous crime he had committed and she compared the situation to a real hell.[37]

While in the Orochi's presence under her Komurasaki persona, Hiyori always acted with deep respect and love for the him.[21] Where she also sang his favorite song to him, and she was jealous when he flirted with another. However, when Orochi attacked Toko, Hiyori slapped him, causing the shogun to reveal that he wanted to make her his wife, but Hiyori said that she would rather die. Even when she was given the chance to beg for mercy, she continued to deny him, causing Orochi to lash out at her in a fit of rage; although she would be saved by Denjiro, faking her death before him.[14]

After Orochi killed Shimotsuki Yasuie, she decided to kill him herself with her bare hands.[38] This leads her to disguise herself as Komurasaki once more to fool Orochi while using a Seastone nail to nullify his Devil Fruit powers, coldly revealing she never loved him, before proudly revealing her true identity as Oden's daughter. It is also revealed that every time she plays Orochi's favorite song the Moon Princess, she always wears a mask so she can hide her tears and rage as the song is also the favorite song of her late father.[39]

Despite being hungry and having to dress in rags, I have always been proud of my father's name!! On the other hand, you, there was not a single day in which you were a true shogun!! You are just a stupid and pathetic man!! The longer you lived, the more lives were wasted!!
— Hiyori declares to Orochi the deep hatred she had felt for him for a long time.[40]

Hiyori Tears Rage

Hiyori lets out her tears and rage after removing her mask.

When Orochi tries to trick her by saying that he had respected Oden as well, Hiyori is not swayed by his lies and reminds him of everything she put her father through. However, Orochi kept trying to convince her with the same thing, so Hiyori takes off her mask and proudly calls out her name with tears in her eyes. She stands before the horrified Orochi and declares that she was always proud to bear her father's name, while she denounces him for all the atrocities he committed and that he did not deserve to be shogun. When Kurozumi Kanjuro's Kazenbo appeared and accidentally burned Orochi, she just watched as he burned.[41]

Unfortunately, when the seastone nail was later dislodged, the wounded Orochi decided to kill Hiyori and take her with him in his final act to spite Oden.[42] Besides joking that they would be in hell together; only for Denjiro to end up decapitating him.[33] When Orochi was still alive and told her that the Kurozumi clan would always curse the country of Wano, she fearlessly approached him and told him that: "Kurozumi was born to burn."[43]

Bingo, Bongo and Bungo

Bingo, Bongo and Bungo are three men who were all in love with Hiyori, under the guise as Komurasaki. When they met her individually, she would use their affections for her and make them give up all their money and personal belongings to gain her freedom.[12] Knowing the three were responsible for an arson ring and ruining the lives of several innocent people, Hiyori targeted them to get justice for those they harmed. Once she got all their money from them, she left them poor and unable to fend for themselves.[17] The three of them later tried to kill her for revenge only to be thwarted.[12] Because of her actions, the three are forced to live in Ebisu Town barely able to make a living.[17]


Flower Capital Citizens

Komurasaki's Funeral

The Flower Capital citizens fanatically sorrowful during Komurasaki's funeral.

Due to her great beauty, refined charisma and mannerism as the highest-ranking courtesan of Wano, Komurasaki was immensely popular among the citizens who live in the Flower Capital. She has been described by a old veteran courtesan as the dream of all men and perfection of all women in Wano with her fellow geishas also holding utmost respect for Komurasaki. While proceeding to Orochi's palace, many men and women gathered to see and cheer for Komurasaki while admiring her captivating beauty. They respectfully referred to her as "Komurasaki-sama".[2] After she was presumably killed by Kyoshiro, all the citizens were extremely sorrowful and mourned her death.[44]

Following the raid on Onigashima, the public is now aware of her true identity as the daughter of Kozuki Oden where they were overjoyed at this [45] and continue to admire her as well.[46]


Under her alias Komurasaki, all of Hiyori's colleagues particularly her fellow geishas held immense respect and admiration for Hiyori due to her unmatched beauty, charisma and skills as a geisha. Many of her subordinates also found great amusement in Hiyori swindling corrupt men of their wealth as they laughed hysterically at Bingo, mocking him for letting his lust delude him into thinking Hiyori truly fell for him, giving away all his wealth to Hiyori in the process. Hiyori's fellow geishas were all also horrified and saddened when Kyoshiro seemingly killed Hiyori as punishment for going against Kurozumi Orochi.

Abilities and Powers

Physical Abilities

Hiyori seems to have great balance and leg strength to walk with extremely tall geta sandals without any strain, although she did have to put her hand on her guard to do so. She also owned a fair amount of arm strength as she slapped the extremely large Kurozumi Orochi with enough force to leave a mark.[14] As a child, she is already strong and agile enough to perform drop kicks on her older brother Kozuki Momonosuke. She is also extremely agile as she can change her position mid-air when she jumps to dropkick on Momonosuke. As an adult, she is still strong and agile enough to dropkick Momonosuke, even after he becomes an adult as well.

Deception and Trickery

Hiyori has shown to be an extremely crafty manipulator using her beauty in conjunction with superior acting skills to deceive some corrupt men into giving her all their wealth.[12] With Denjiro's assistance, she was able to fool Kurozumi Orochi and all those who attended the banquet into believing that she died by carrying fake blood packs.

During the raid on Onigashima, while Orochi carelessly listened to her music, Hiyori secretly placed a Seastone nail on him just so he will not transform.

Musical Skills

Hiyori Playing a Shamisen

Hiyori is very skilled with the shamisen.

Ever since she was a child, Hiyori practiced playing the shamisen and continued to do so during her training as a geisha, proving herself to be an extremely talented musician. This was shown when she played a song so enchanting, it deeply captivated Kurozumi Orochi, his guests, and her fellow courtesans.[14]

Medical Skills

Hiyori possesses some degree of medical skill, as she was able to treat a large shoulder wound Roronoa Zoro got from Kamazo.[9]



Early Childhood

Hiyori was born 26 years ago to Kozuki Oden and Kozuki Toki while they were on Whitebeard Pirates' ship.[3] After Oden encountered Gol D. Roger and decided to assist him with his final journey, Hiyori then boarded the Oro Jackson with her parents and older brother.[47]

Sometime after the Roger Pirates' visit to Fish-Man Island, Toki became ill. When the crew reached Wano Country, Hiyori left the crew with her mother and brother and stayed behind at Wano.[48]

After Toki recovered from her illness, she and her children became beloved figures of the Kuri region. After Oden returned to Wano, the family welcomed him back. At Oden Castle, Oden was being informed about Orochi's abuse of power and Raizo was ordered to take Hiyori and Momonosuke out of the room before Oden was told about the Beasts Pirates' attempted attack on his family.[49]

Hiyori watched as her father began to publicly humiliate himself by dancing almost naked in front of the shogun's castle once a week, which made him lose the respect of most of the people of Wano and they spoke ill of him. This saddened her and she asked her father if she didn't mind the rumors about him. However, he had replied that he did not care about her, since she had her family; then Hiyori was very happy and told him that they would be there for him too.[50]

20 years ago, while Oden and the Scabbards fought the Beasts Pirates in the Udon region, Hiyori, Momonosuke, and Toki stayed in Oden Castle while they were guarded by Shimotsuki Yasuie and his men.[51]

On the day of Oden's execution, Hiyori was having a meal with her mother and brother and she was concerned when Momonosuke started crying.[52]

Life in Hiding

Kawamatsu Takes Care of Hiyori

Kawamatsu takes care of Hiyori.

After Kozuki Oden was executed in the Flower Capital by Kurozumi Orochi and Kaidou, Hiyori was in Oden Castle with her mother and brother, set it ablaze. Kozuki Toki used her Devil Fruit powers to send Kozuki Momonosuke and four of their retainers 20 years forward in time, leaving Hiyori remaining with her.[8]

Kawamatsu then helped Hiyori escape from the castle and took care of her by providing her with food and cheering her up when she was sad, even though he himself was hungry. Although she was initially mute, she eventually began to laugh. After seven years [28], Hiyori couldn't watch Kawamatsu getting hungrier as he fed her all the food he could get his hands on. Worried that he would starve to death because of her, she decided to run away.[53] Before that, she wrote him a letter saying thanking him for everything and that she was going to be okay.[54]

Hiyori's Geisha Years

Hiyori working as a geisha, first a kamuro and eventually an oiran.

Hiyori was brought outside Kyoshiro's residence after being found on the streets of the Flower Capital. The yakuza boss brought Hiyori in and revealed his true identity of Denjiro to her. He then raised her for the next 13 years, grooming her as a geisha under the alias Komurasaki. Hiyori dutifully worked as a Kamuro and trained herself earnestly as a geisha.[55] Eventually, she was promoted into an oiran, the highest ranking geisha, deeply respected and idolized in the Flower Capital for her immense beauty and charisma, which also earned her the favor of Orochi.[14]

One day, Hiyori courted Bingo, Bongo and Bungo, claiming to want her freedom purchased before the shogun Orochi took her and agreeing to go with each man if they managed to do this. The men gave up everything they had to raise the money, which they put in her possession. However, she had deceived them and left them with nothing,[12] putting an end to their criminal activities in the process.[17] She gave the money she took from them to Kyoshiro for him to distribute to the poor. Due to Orochi falling in love with Komurasaki, Denjiro advised Hiyori to carry fake blood under her kimono so he could fake her death if the situation requires it.[56]

Wano Country Saga

Wano Country Arc

Komurasaki's Procession

"Komurasaki's" procession begins.

Komurasaki was called by Kurozumi Orochi to perform her services at his banquet. She made her way through the streets of the Flower Capital as the citizens gazed at her in awe, and she was joined by her kamuro Toko who had come late to the procession.[2] She was then confronted by Bingo, Bongo and Bungo, who tried to kill her to avenge their destitution, but her guard defeated them. As the three men cried in anguish, she mocked and degraded them as she walked away from them. She later made it to Orochi's palace.[12]

Kyoshiro Attacks Komurasaki

Kyoshiro strikes down "Komurasaki".

At the banquet hall, she sat next to Orochi who arrived to start the celebration.[21] There, Komurasaki played some music for the shogun before returning to his side. Orochi then talked about the impending return of Kozuki Oden's Nine Red Scabbards and son Momonosuke, to which she was shocked when Toko laughed at him. She pleaded with Orochi not to attack her kamuro, but he did not listen, forcing her to slap him. She refused to prostrate herself in apology and Orochi angrily transformed into the Yamata no Orochi.[14] After she once again refused to apologize, Orochi attacked her and wrested her into one of his mouths. However, she was dislodged from Orochi's grip when the ceiling crashed onto the shogun's head. She then faced Kyoshiro who slashed her with the appearance of killing her.[11]

Zoro Saves Hiyori and Toko

Zoro saves Hiyori and Toko from Kamazo.

With "Komurasaki" considered dead by everyone, Hiyori escaped and reunited with Toko and they fled the Flower Capital as Toko was pursued by Orochi's assassin Kamazo. They were chased to Ringo, and as they came to Oihagi Bridge, Hiyori pleaded for the swordsman Roronoa Zoro and the samurai Gyukimaru to help. She agreed to Zoro's request for food and alcohol in return and watched as he battled Kamazo. She was shocked when Kamazo pierced Zoro through the shoulder, but Zoro then managed to strike down the assassin.[19]

Zoro then fell unconscious from his wound and Hiyori took him to a house in the Northern Cemetery to treat it. When Zoro woke up, he attempted to leave immediately and Hiyori held him back, accidentally aggravating his wound. Hiyori then gave Zoro his food and alcohol before she told him about Gyukimaru as well as what had happened to her and Toko. She then revealed her own identity and that she was looking for her brother Momonosuke.[9]

After Zoro was shocked to learn that she is Momonosuke's younger sister, Hiyori expressed joy in learning that her brother is alive. After receiving confirmation that Zoro was an ally, Hiyori told him of her past, including how Kawamatsu rescued her from the destruction of Oden Castle and raised her until she was 13 and how Toko is an important friend to her. Hiyori and Zoro proceeded to talk about the current status of the alliance including the whereabouts of each of the Nine Red Scabbards. After their conversation, Hiyori wondered if she should meet her brother.[57]

Hiyori and Toko then slept with Zoro before they later woke up to meet Brook. After getting acquainted with each other, Brook told the group about Komurasaki's funeral as well as the capture of Tonoyasu and his impending execution. Toko rushed off to save him, causing Hiyori, Zoro and Brook to run after her.[58]

Hiyori Confides in Zoro

Hiyori tearfully explains to Zoro why the Ebisu residents are laughing at Yasuie's death.

The group later arrived at the prison in the Rasetsu Town just in time to witness the execution. When the people from Ebisu Town were crying and smiling, Hiyori explained to Zoro that they were actually devastated but could only smile because of the SMILE fruits.[59] She explained more about the work of Orochi in robbing the people of Ebisu Town of their emotions before noticing Toko beside her father's body. Hiyori desperately cried out to Toko, telling her to come back, but Orochi spotted her. She then told Toko to run, but Orochi started shooting at her. Fortunately, Zoro and Sanji shielded the girl.[60]

Hiyori then wondered if Sanji was Zoro's comrade. During the ensuing chaos, Hiyori witnessed Zoro clashing with Kyoshiro.[61] After she saw Usopp fleeing with Toko, Brook told Hiyori to escape as well. However, as she was fleeing, she was pursued by Fujin and Raijin since she was seen with Zoro. Just when they were about to capture her, Zoro came and rescued her.[62]

Hiyori and Zoro fled to a forest outside the capital, but they were still pursued by members of the Orochi Oniwabanshu. Hiyori hid in the Enma Shrine as Zoro defeated their pursuers. After Zoro explained his intention to avenge Yasuie, Hiyori expressed her desire to kill Orochi herself.[63]

Hiyori then returned to Oihagi Bridge with Zoro and watched him fight Gyukimaru again. She was surprised when she heard Shusui being mentioned. Kawamatsu interrupted the fight and Hiyori was glad to see him again. However, the reunion was interrupted when some Beasts Pirates arrived seeking revenge on Gyukimaru for stealing their weapons.[64]

After the Beasts Pirates were defeated, Hiyori got reacquainted with Kawamatsu, who told her of his ordeals after they separated. He told her of the story of Shimotsuki Ushimaru and his fox companion Onimaru, who Kawamatsu was paired with defending Ringo until he was captured. They caught up with Zoro at a passageway leading to an underground chamber where Kawamatsu kept a stash of weapons. Hiyori then respectfully asked Zoro to return Shusui in exchange for Enma, a sword that was once wielded by her father.[65] Ignoring Kawamatsu's objections towards giving away Enma, Hiyori proceeded to explain more about the two swords that were in Oden's possession. She once again implored Zoro to return Shusui, and Zoro agreed with her condition.[31] While Kawamatsu and Zoro headed off to Amigasa Village, Hiyori refused to join them as she did not want to reunite their allies yet.[66]

Orochi Trapped

Hiyori leaves Orochi trapped under rubble.

On the day of the Fire Festival, Hiyori hid within the tribute that Orochi brought to Onigashima and was placed in one of the rooms of the Treasure Repository.[67] After Law teleported the Nine Red Scabbards into the Treasure Repository after their fight with Kaidou, Hiyori tended to their wounds.[68] Before the Scabbards woke up, she went back into hiding. During his treatment, Kawamatsu thought he recognized her and mistook it for a dream, thinking it couldn't be true.[69] Later that night, when Orochi took shelter in the Treasure Repository, Hiyori—once more dressed as Komurasaki—began playing her shamisen and greeted Orochi as he crawled into the room.[70] As he laid next to her, Orochi requested that she play his favorite song while he waited for Fukurokuju.[71] Unbeknownst to Orochi, Hiyori had planted a Seastone nail on him while he was distracted in order to neutralize his Devil Fruit powers.[72]

Suddenly, the island began to shake, but she ignored it.[73] Orochi was enraged when he saw that Fukurokuju hasn't arrived yet, then got angry at Hiyori for continuing to play and ordered her to stop as well as ordering her to remove her mask, doubting her identity. Suddenly, the ceiling collapsed and Orochi was trapped under the rubble, wondering why he couldn't transform, to which she was amused. When Orochi asked her to help him, Hiyori explained how she managed to immobilize him, and after Orochi asked why she did that if she loved him to which Hiyori teased him, revealing that the song was also one of her father's favorites, Kozuki Oden.[39]

Orochi immediately told Hiyori that he respected Oden as well, stating that Kaidou was using him the whole time and begging him to remove the nail so they could run away together, but she asked if he still thought he's tricking someone. Hiyori reminded him how her father kept her promise to him and Kaidou, without telling anyone about it, and she added that he always believed that the entire country would be liberated, even in his execution. Orochi told him that Oden was a great samurai and should be respected as a shogun. However, Hiyori removed her mask, where she tearfully told him to shut up and revealed her real name. She revealed to him that even when she was without food and dressed in rags, she defended her father's honor and that she never saw Orochi as a shogun, but as a pathetic madman who killed innocent people. As Orochi kept begging her to help him, Kurozumi Kanjuro's Kazenbo appears. The shogun ordered it to burn Hiyori to ruin her revenge plan from twenty years ago, while taunting her. However, Kazenbo approached Orochi, burning him while Hiyori, seeing him, said that the dawn will come. Orochi begged her again to save him, but she told him that the Kozuki family would always keep its promises.[41]

Denjiro Beheads Orochi

Denjiro saves Hiyori.

Unfortunately, the later shaking throughout Onigashima had dislodged the nail from Orochi, allowing him to transform again. There he made the decision to take Hiyori with him as a final act to annoy Oden.[42] He declared to Hiyori that she shouldn't have underestimated the Kurozumi Family's anger, adding that the two of them could drink together in hell. However, unexpectedly, Denjiro arrived, beheading Orochi and hugging Hiyori,[33] congratulating her for staying strong all these years, making her cry.[74] Suddenly, however, Orochi was still alive, who continued to threaten her, telling her that the Kurozumi family would curse all of Wano forever. Despite Denjiro telling her to be careful, she approached Orochi saying, "Kurozumi was born to burn.", after which Orochi would then finally die from the fire.[43]

As Oniganishima landed, Nekomamushi announced that Monkey D. Luffy had defeated Kaidou and that Momonosuke had facilitated the fall of the island. After the latter announced in his dragon form to all the citizens of the Flower Capital that Kaidou's rule has ended, Hiyori and all of the Kozuki Retainers arrived to calm the panicking citizens. Then, all the citizens recognized her and Denjiro by their false identities where the latter announced to them the new shogun, Kozuki Momonosuke.[75] As they walked, Kin'emon pointed out to Hiyori and Denjiro how famous they have become; wondering if the rest of them would also be recognized by the citizens. Their emergence was then broadcast throughout the country. When Momonosuke arrived in his human form, Hiyori and all the retainers bowed to him. After Momonosuke took his speech to the entire country and proclaimed himself the new shogun, Hiyori cried with joy and hugged him.[23]

A week later, Hiyori announced to Momonosuke that Luffy and Zoro had woken up, also kicking him in the face like when they were children; where he then he joined the banquet with everyone else. As Zoro realized that he was clean, Hiyori revealed that she was the one who cleaned him up and asked if he was happy. She then joined the other women in a bathroom, conversing with Kikunojo while taking a bath.[76]

She would later join the festival in the Flower Capital, playing Moon Princess for the first time without her mask along with Brook.[46]

After the festival ended, she returned to the shogun's palace along with Momonosuke and some Scabbards where Tenguyama revealed to her and Momonosuke that he was their grandfather, Kozuki Sukiyaki. When they hugged him, he apologized to them, but both Hiyori and Momonosuke were relieved to learn that they had another living relative; so she asked him not to apologize. Then, Sukiyaki told the Scabbards not to tell anyone about his identity, saying that he wanted them to forge the new age, to which they agreed.

Days later, she and Toko were practicing the shamisen when Momonosuke rushed in searching for the Straw Hats. Hiyori informed him that they had already said their goodbyes and departed that morning.[77] Soon after, Hiyori and Toko played the shamisen in an auditorium while the new school teacher told the story of the raid on Onigashima.[78]
