They seem to be strong, being able to easily defeat Niphtal's subordinates. They also use an assortment of weapons, such as a large pole, guns and a large axe while in battle.[1]


  • The group's name is derived from the Chinese word "lǎotóur" (老頭児), which in Japanese is written "rōtoru" (ロートル?) and used as a derogatory term for elderly people, referencing the group being made up of older men.
  • The group members follow a naming theme based on the Heavenly Stems, a Chinese system of ordinals. In the Japanese on'yomi reading, the first ordinals are Ko (1), Otsu (2), Hei (3), Tei (4).
