|“||I left them behind on a faraway day...||„|
|~ Mikumo when asked about her dreams|
Mikumo Kushinada is the second most powerful member of One Shadow Nine Fists, a group of the ten strongest hand to hand fighters within the martial arts terrorist group Yami, and is their only female member. Even among Yami, a group whose main goal is to spread chaos, death and agony for the sake of testing their fighting skill, Mikumo is known to be especially cruel and heartless.
As a devout Satsujinken (Killing Fist), she believes empathy, kindness and compassion are revolting weaknesses that must be "broken." She views her disciples as mindless killing machines rather than actual humans, and works to ensure they will eventually also view themselves as such. This is most frequently seen in her interactions with her adopted daughter, Chikage, beating her into unconsciousness for showing sympathy to an injured man.
Her goals with Yami were eventually thwarted when the Ryozanpaku masters teamed up against her. Realizing she had no chance at victory, she retreated with her current whereabouts unknown.

Standard Equipment: None notable
Intelligence: Mikumo is one of the skilled hand-to-hand combatants on the planet, having fought alongside Hayato Furinji on numerous occasions and referring to seasoned masters who have spent their lifetimes practicing their techniques as mere children. She easily overwhelmed the likes of Shigure Kosaka, a renowned prodigy who was thought to be virtually invincible in single combat with anything resembling a weapon, and Sakaki Shio, who can defeat scores of masters on his own, with complete and utter ease. Her skill was such that all of Ryozanpaku masters, who are known to be at the pinnacle of their respective styles, needed to fight her simultaneously in order to stand on even ground, and only a momentary distraction caused by Senzui's defeat allowed them to ultimately overtake her.
Weaknesses: Can lose her usual calm, stoic demeanor if she is especially angered
- Kushinada-Style: A superhuman martial art with roots derived from Jujitsu. The style was founded by Mikumo's late mother. This century old fighting form emphasizes on completely ignoring one's physical strength, and instead relying entirely on the practitioner's skill.
- Bunshin: A technique in which the user moves their body at incredibly high speeds, giving the illusion of that the fighter is cloning themselves to confuse her opponents. Like many other characters in the series, Mikumo is able to perform this technique with ease. Her variation is especially effective, as it's shown multiple times to be able to completely baffle other people who've mastered their own versions of the technique.
- Kushinada-Style Underground Throw: A grappling maneuver in which one pivots around their opponent in a circular motion. From there they grab on to the person and forcefully slam them into the ground. Mikumo's immense skill and superhuman strength gives this technique especially devastating results.
- Kushinada-Style Thousand Year Throw: Mikumo creates a massive projection of herself with pure ki, which then unleashes a thousand giant hands to pummel the surrounding area. This technique is powerful enough to affect local weather patterns, and the projection alone is able to inspire fear in those able to feel it.
