Hikoubou (known as Rankiryu in the anime) is a particularly sadistic instructor to the Otokojuku First-Years. He is most well-known for leading the Forward March in the first chapter of the manga.
Hikoubou has a distinct goatee and wears a World War II-era fighter pilot's hat, complete with aviator goggles. He also wears a vest, which he leaves open. In the anime his appearance is changed to that of a monk's, with a purple rosary, a staff, and short black hair. He is also given a darker skin tone.
