|~ Ganta Igarashi|
Ganta Igarashi was an ordinary schoolboy until the mysterious Red Man mysteriously appeared outside of Ganta's classroom window and swiftly knocks Ganta out. When the boy comes to, he finds his entire class murdered, only to have a mysterious red diamond plunged into his chest.
Afterward, Ganta finds himself charged with the murder of all of his classmates and sent to Deadman Wonderland, a hellish private prison run as an amusement park for the entertainment of onlookers. Now forced to use his newfound ability to manipulate his own blood to fight in gladiatorial battles with similarly freakish individuals, Ganta swears vengeance on the Red Man for his predicament and the murder of his classmates.

Range: 10+ meters
Standard Equipment: None notable
Intelligence: Academically average for a middle school student, otherwise skilled combatant
Weaknesses: Ganta needs an open wound in order to begin manipulating the blood in his body, which he usually accomplishes by biting his own thumb. Unlike other Deadmen, Ganta cannot recall the blood he's fired back into his body, so overusing his Branch of Sin will eventually render him anemic and light-headed, though this has been mitigated by the end of the series. His use of the Ganbare Gun is slowly killing him and causes scars and burn marks to show up all over his body. Shattering the Red Diamond in his chest will render him incapable of using his Branch of Sin.
- Branch of Sin: Ganta Gun: Ganta's Branch of Sin allows him to compress his blood into bullets that can be launched with enough concussive force to easily shatter boulders several times Ganta's size, with the strength of the bullet being proportional to the amount of blood he uses. However, since he can't recall the blood he uses with this Branch of Sin, Ganta will eventually be rendered light-headed and anemic should he overuse it, though this has been mitigated through his own practice and the use of the Supersonic Ganta Gun.
- Supersonic Ganta Gun: Ganta eventually learned how to maximize the usage of his Branch of sin by compressing small amounts of blood into a tight shape, allowing him to fire smaller bullets at supersonic speeds. He can fire these blood bullets in rapid succession with enough force to completely fracture a wall designed to contain Deadmen. In addition, this technique minimizes the amount of blood Ganta needs to deal maximum damage, reducing the risk of anemia.
- Ganbare Gun: Ganta's ultimate trump card, it fires an even faster and more powerful version of the Ganta Gun that expands and explodes on impact to deal tremendous amounts of damage. However, using this ability takes a toll on Ganta due to how much blood is required. In addition, overuse of this ability leaves burn marks all over Ganta's body leading the the red diamond embedded in his chest, and will eventually kill him.
