Sahara Sanjūrō is the titular wandering samurai who, alongside Yae Tokiro, is in search of the Valley of the World Tree.



Sahara is characterised as vibrant and high-spirited, and courageous; constantly smiling despite the difficulty of the situation. He has shown to also be altruistic, willing to give the last of his food and water to orphan children and his willingness to aid his soon to be companion, Yae Tokiro, after she had been mistreated and denied entry onto an aircraft.

Despite his love for flowers and sword's ability to produce flora from its tip and otherwise slain zombies, he is heavily allergic to pollen.

Sahara 's appearance.

He is a tall individual with blonde, shoulder-length hair tied into a ponytail and green eyes. He wears a dark-coloured hat that has a flap to, for an unknown reason, cover the entire right side of his face — the top of which extends far beyond the top of his head. In combat, Sahara dons an orange respirator resembling the lower half of a kabuki mask. Notably, it also featured three filter cartridges on its sides and bottom in order to keep his pollen allergy under control. Because most of his journey is done traversing the desert, he sports a pair of goggles.

His attire consists of a beige shirt and loose fitting black pants tightened by a belt wrapped multiple times over his waist — between which the Flower Sword is strapped. The entirety of right hand, arm, and shoulder is covered up by dark golden-coloured leather and plated with blue samurai armor. His left hand and arm, up to his forearm, is covered by a lighter golden-coloured leather. Though, underneath it is accented by blue bandages. He also sports dark-coloured (possibly black) shinobi sandals and a dark brown cloak that reached down just below his knees.


Swordsmanship: Sahara, typical of a samurai, has considerable skill as a swordsman. Having mastered the Flower Sword's many forms, he is able to use its abilities in quick succession to land debilitating strikes upon his targets. He is also capable of skillfully wielding a sword with his off-hand or two in tandem.

Heightened Speed and Reflexes: Sahara has considerable speed and reflexes, having been capable of intercepting foes despite having to cover noticeably lengthy distances and dodging attacks from other swordsmen despite being bound. With aid from the versatile Flower Sword, he is able to react and save himself and others from varying difficult situations. This proves himself to be adaptable to even the most surreal danger.


Sahara's Unique Tools

Fashion: Sword

The Flower Sword
Flower Sword Sheathed

The Flower Sword sheathed.

Sahara wields the Flower Sword, a shape-shifting sword that, upon unsheathing, can assume a variety of forms. Though, according to Sahara, the sword is not exactly fit to cut other people. Fitting his moniker, the sword abilities are aptly flower-themed. Each respective form allows for different feats.
Morning Glory
Flower Sword – Form of the Morning Glory: In this form, the Flower Sword becomes a whip, taking on the appearance of many leaves stacked upon each other. The whip is able extend great lengths and at an incredible rate; even capable of grasping onto a moving aircraft. Sahara skill with this form allowed him to force a massive automaton to its knees.
Dandelion form
Flower Sword – Form of the Dandelion: Upon transformation, the Flower Sword manifests large, puffy dandelions heads on its tip. The sword's cross guard also changes; turning into four jagged arrows pointing into the four cardinal directions.

This form allows Sahara to glide and maneuver through the air, having shown utilising this form to leap great heights and ensure a safe landing.

Flower Sword – Form of the Cherry Blossom: Taking on the form of a asymmetrical tuning fork styled with a petal design, Sahara is able to use this form of the Flower Sword to more directly attack his targets.

In this form, the sword is capable of dealing heavy damage to zombies. After each successful attack, zombies will manifest trees and other plant life upon their body. Once the target is defeated, its entire body will develop into a cluster of trees and other plants.

Flower Sword – Form of the Violets: When using this form the Flower Sword takes on a gun-like function. Starting off closed, the sword blooms open and fires out multiple thorns as bullets.

There seems to be a limit on how many thorns this form can shoot before running out and becoming incapable of firing.

Form of the bamboo
Flower Sword – Form of the Bamboo: In this form, the Flower Sword becomes a lance, taking on the appearance of a shoot of bamboo. The bamboo is able to extend in length and pierce multiple enemies with ease. Killing automated warriors in this form grows a bamboo forest instead of flowers and normal trees.
