Kaioh is the First Rashō who rules of Asura, referred to as the "Creator of a New Century". A descendant of the original Hokuto bloodline, he is the elder brother of Raoh and Toki, who he was separated from at birth. As opposed to his siblings, he learned Hokuto Ryū Ken, a more destructive style of Hokuto that grants great destructive strength at the expense of the user's sanity. After his mother sacrificed her life to save a baby Kenshiro, Kaioh swore off his emotions due to the great sorrow he felt, punishing every emotion he felt with pain. Kaioh is the final and strongest of Kenshiro's many rivals.

- Shura Armor: A special set of armor Kaioh wears. It's not used for protection but rather acts as an inhibitor, to hold back as much of his demonic energy as he can (there's so much that it sometimes begins to crack his armor under the pressure of his energy.). Somewhat allows him more efficient control of his Matoki.
Weaknesses: Nothing notable
- Hokuto Ryū Ken: Hokuto Ryū Ken is a 1, 800 year old Chinese martial art, a rival style to Hokuto Shinken. Its power is based around targeting and hitting the 1, 109 Keiraku Hakō (or pressure points), as opposed to the 708 Keiraku Hikō manipulated by Hokuto Shinken, in an opponent's body, channeling energy into them, and through that, manipulating their movements. These pressure points can be used to control an enemy's body, in ways such as forcing them to move or destroying them from the inside with an explosion, or they can be used for healing, such as in the restoration of someone's memories, eyesight, or voice. Hokuto Ryū Ken also grants the user to the power of the Matōki, an aura that absorbs chi and increases their strength at the expense of their own sanity.
- Anma Makakyoku Ha: Kaioh manifests his aura in the form of tendrils and spikes, which he uses to pierce his opponent and throw them around.
- Anryū Ensatsu Jin: Kaioh uses his aura to lift his opponents into the air, and then tears them apart.
- Anryū Hiha: A blast of Matōki fired from Kaioh's hand.
- Anryū Tenha: The greatest secret technique of Hokuto Ryū Ken. Using his aura, Kaioh picks up his opponent, levitating them in the air, and then spins them around constantly, suffocating them in his aura and heavily disorienting them.
- Hokuto Gyakushi Sō: Kaioh takes the position of the Shichosei, the Death Omen Star when attacking an opponent.
- Matōki no Aura: A special aura used by Kaioh, as a practitioner of Hokuto Ryū Ken. While it grants him inhuman strength and makes him a Majin, it does so at the cost of his sanity. His aura absorbs chi, even from just physical blows, making his opponents weaker and weaker. It is also capable of suffocating and overpowering other techniques.
- Mukokyu Toho: A technique that allows Kaioh to fight without breathing.
- Hokuto Sōke no Ken: The original martial art of the Hokuto line.
- Jōma Kōshō: Hyoh wreathes their hand in ki and attacks his opponent.
- Seimyō Danretsu: Kaioh strikes all 1, 109 of his opponent's pressure points before knocking them away with a kick.
- Keiraku Hakō: The pressure points Kaioh can hit and their effects include;
- Keisei: Restores the target's memories.
- Kokei Kosoku: Allows the user to fight without breathing.
- Mu Kon An: Prevents the target from feeling pain.
