Miyamoto Musashi (宮本武蔵?) is the male version from the Greater History of Man, in contrast to the female version from a pruned world-line.



A swordsman from the early ​Edo period​, Miyamoto Musashi was renowned as the strongest swordsman in the history of Japan. He founded the ​Niten Ichi-ryū (二天一流?)​ school of swordsmanship; a martial art that involved the dual-wielding of a ​katana​ and ​wakizashi​.[1]

Musashi was born in Oohara, Sakushu (modern day ​Mimasaka​, in the ​Okayama Prefecture​), at 1584. His father was a practitioner of martial arts named ​Shinmen Munisai​, who served as an instructor of martial arts to the ​Shinmen House​ of lords of the Takayama Castle, and who received the name of Shinmen from his employer’s family. Shinmen Munisai built a dojo of ​Jutte​ techniques in the Miyamoto village of the Yoshino district, and Musashi would later call himself “Miyamoto” due having this land as his hometown.[1]

He left behind many anecdotes and went through numerous battles against martial artists upon reaching adulthood - especially during the ten years of his 20s. Those famous bouts are even now seen as a staple of the entertainment industry. However, the truth behind the episodes of these ten years of battle is mostly wrapped in mystery and there are strong suspicions about them being mere fiction.[1]


Miyamoto Musashi is an elderly man suffering from lung cancer. He wears a torn, dark kimono and has shoulder-length hair.


He is solemn, patient, and self deprecating. He prays to Buddha for strength to stay alive.


The Musashi who appears in Shimousa is a still living Musashi who is sickly and dying years before his normal date of death. Sitting alone in a cave, he is awaiting his final opponent. He acts as the narrator for Shimousa.


When comparing him to his female counterpart, her dual-wielding style is said to be a lot flashier than his.[2]

As a Servant, one Noble Phantasm he could possess is Oar Wooden Sword.
