Chou Koumei (趙公明 Chō Kōmei?, Zhao Gong-Ming) is one of the Sankyou Sennin, is originally a flower demon (plant based Youkai), so he lavishes good looks and the proper way of doing battle, known for his fabulousness. He's possibly the weirdest person in all of the characters of Hoshin Engi. Chou Koumei He always claims that a good battle is a 'BEAUTIFUL' battle. He loves to make an entrance, usually accompanied by spotlights, dancers, and most importantly flowers. His taste in clothes and designer fashion can ony be compared to those of Dakki. He obsesses over perfection and prettiness that most of his opponents (especially Taikoubou) don't take him seriously enough. But, do not underestimate his abilities as a fighter. Even Geishi Tenson say that Chou Koumei is a very powerful opponent, considering he wields a Super Paopei as well. He has the Super Paopei Kinkousen, which has the appearance of a pair of gardening shears. Its attack releases seven rainbow dragons when fully utilized. He also created the Bakuryusaku, a projection paopei that took him 1000 years to develop. He uses random French phrases in his speech and is often seen holding a wine glass. His houhin is remarkably gorgeous, including a circle of light and a choir of cherub angels.
Chou Koumei also has the funniest, wackiest laugh (I think you can download a sound file of just his laughter from one of the sites. You have to have a listen to his laugh, it is simply hysterical.).
