|~ Colonel explaining his plans to Kenshiro.|
Colonel (in Japanese: 大佐カーネル, Kāneru) is a minor antagonist in Fist of the North Star. He is the commanding officer of Golan.
He was voiced by the late Kōji Yada in the Japanese version of the anime, and the late Barry Stigler in the English dubbed version of the anime.
Years ago, Colonel led the Red Berets being true patriots of his home nation. One day, he found his superior officer drunk. Colonel felt his superiors to be animals under the human facade. When the general plunged the world into a nuclear holocaust, the Red Berets and Colonel survived because of their training. Colonel and his followers had gone mad, believing they had been chosen by God to build a world for the elite.
Kenshiro first meets Colonel in the chambers of his hideout, Godland after taking out guards hiding in statues. Kenshiro found out Colonel had turned into a monster and thus a fight began, with Colonel using his boomerangs to easily cut the Hokuto Shinken master's limbs. On another try, Kenshiro dodged the boomerangs with the Kukyoku Ryubu.
Upon learning that Kenshiro has no ambition, Colonel decides to resort to Nanto Moun Ken, using his claws. He easily dodges Kenshiro's moves and makes a slash. Almost at a disadvantage, Kenshiro learns his enemy is spotting his moves through his muscle pattern and blocks it out. Colonel also follows suit but this time, Kenshiro makes a successful barrage of punches.
Kenshiro then reminds Colonel his training is 20 to 30 years behind Kenshiro's training. Rin then comes in to assist, but Colonel throws a spear at the child; However, Kenshiro catches the spear in time. Colonel throws a second spear into Kenshiro's arm and gloats his fighting skill is now weakened.
When all seemed lost, Colonel suddenly feels pain in his eyes and becomes blind; That is because Kenshiro struck the Domei power point. Now afraid, Colonel tries to save himself, but Kenshiro hits him with the Hokuto Kaikotsu Ken. Before he dies, the Golan leader tries to tell Kenshiro with his strength, he could've taken anything he wished, but then his skeleton blows itself out of his body, killing him.
In the anime, Colonel serves under Shin believing him to be a God and his army was now God's Army.
In the movie, he serves under Shin's security force in Southern Cross and is executed for focusing on Raoh's forces.
