Raijin is an average-sized man with long white spiky hair. He wears a goggled mask over his face, one side of which is blue and the other yellow. He also wears an orange kimono, white gloves, and a large ring on his back holding four fireballs.[1]

He has been seen riding on the back of a large catfish that can move on land.[5]

Personality

Like the other members of the Orochi Oniwabanshu, Raijin is loyal to the shogun Orochi and dedicated to his job. However, he is superstitious and can be prone to being scared, as shown when he wasconfronted by the skeleton Brook.[5] He remarked how foolish it was for Robin to attempt to sneak through Orochi Castle in the presence of ninja.[1]

His specialty, like Fujin's, is "Slimy Grappling" (ぬめり格闘 Numeri Kakutō?).[4]

Weapons

Raijin carries shuriken, which he used to attack Robin.[6]

History

Wano Country Arc

After seeing the geisha O-Robi suspiciously sneaking around Orochi Castle during Orochi's banquet, Fujin, Raijin, and the rest of the Orochi Oniwabanshu snuck up and cornered her.[1] The ninjas questioned who she was and then moved to capture her, but unbeknownst to them, it was her body double, and so when they caught her, she vanished into thin air. Seeing this, they broke off into the banquet hall to find the real body of the geisha.[6] While searching, Fujin and Raijin encountered Brook's spirit form, and ran screaming for their lives, while mistaking him for the Gashadokuro. As they ran, they encountered their comrades and shouted that a ghost was chasing them, which led to their comrades running away in fear as well.[5]

As the Straw Hat Pirates were causing chaos at Rasetsu Town after Shimotsuki Yasuie's execution, Daikoku ordered Fujin and Raijin to pursue a woman that was seen with Roronoa Zoro. As they were about to capture her, Zoro came and attacked Raijin.[7]

Trivia

  • Raijin shares his name with the Japanese thunder god and the ring of fireballs that he has resembles the ring of taiko drums said god has. Here, the second kanji of his name 刃 (jin? meaning "blade") has replaced that of his namesake's, 神 (jin? meaning "god").
  • Raijin's favorite food is yamaimo.[3]
