Villain Overview

Weak? How I could possibly be weak? If a man is woven together by the threads of memories and dreams...Then...On my two shoulders rest...The lives of the eight who passed away before me...As well as the life of my master, Rin Shou Jo, He who was robbed of his golden age by an illness! Within me lies their hopes, their dreams, their aspirations...And that is why...YOU WILL BE SHATTERED INTO PIECES, SHIN OF THE HI SHIN UNIT!!
~ Chou Ga Ryuu to Hi Shin Unit as he duels Shin.
Gyou'Un...The Rest is Up to You...
~ Chou Ga Ryuu's last words before his death.

Chou Ga Ryuu was a major and supporting antagonist in the popular historical seinen manga and anime series Kingdom. He served as the left-hand man to the Great General and heroic military legend, Rin Shou Jo of Zhao's Three Great Heavens and was a member of the Rin Family's Ten Generals as he was one of the most powerful figures of the Zhao military alongside his colleague Gyou'Un and contemporaries Rin Ko and Kai Sha Bou of Ren Pa's Four Heavenly Kings during the previous era of the Warring States Era. He was one of the major antagonists of the Western Zhao Invasion Arc where he made his first and final appearance within the series.


A patient and cunning man, Chou Ga Ryuu was as complex as the tactics and strategies he would employed on the battlefield. Like Gyou'Un, Chou Ga Ryuu was eternally grateful to his late lord, Rin Shou Jo as he was ready to kill anyone that would attempt to harm or insult his lord or fight against the most powerful of opponents. Though unlike his friend Gyou'Un, Chou Ga Ryuu was always smiling while wearing a calm demeanor, frowning only in rare instances.
