"Let's Get Wild!"
—Kohtaro Kuga, Shikigami no Shiro III

Kohtaro Kuga (玖珂 光太郎 Kuga Kohtarou, sometimes shortened to Ko) is the main protagonist of the Shikigami no Shiro series, appearing in every installment in the series to date. His shikigami was once a woman named Sazae, but in Shikigami No Shiro III, his shikigami is now Sayo Yuuki. He has an older brother known as Shintaro Kuga.

Kohtaro's basic attack is firing a series of bullets, in groups of four, at enemies. When exposed to High Tension, the bullets instead travel in groups in five and colored bright red. Kohtaro's shikigami attack is summoning Sazae or Sayo to attack either nearby enemies, or enemies in an specific pattern (Usually in the order they appear on-screen). Kotaro's bomb attack is causing an massive explosion which will destroy most enemies surrounding him, as well as every enemy bullet on-screen.

Background Edit

Shikigami no Shiro Edit

Kohtaro is a detective with the Metropolitan Police, assigned to the case. His special attack uses a spiritual familiar named Sazae who accompanies him everywhere, whether he likes it or not. He works at the H&K Detective Agency with Gennojo Hyuga.

Shikigami no Shiro (Steam Version)Edit

Kohtarou is always on the phone with Yama-san, a detective on the verge of retirement and constantly arguing with Sayo Yuuki since they started investigating the case together.

He is never unprepared, always carries a full load of o-fuda; paper talisman used to fight off evil and uses 'Zasae-san', his faithful man-eating ghost to drive enemies into preset traps (bombs) and blow them up.

Shikigami no Shiro II Edit

The principal character of the series, a private detective of H&K Detective Agency, returns. His Shikigami, Sazae, is still in tow. He has a personal stake in the battle, as his brother, Shintaro Kuga appears to be in charge of the New World Order.

  • I like girls. But now, it's about justice.
  • Listen up. You have two choices. A. Beaten then caught. Or B. Caught then beaten.
  • I'm Ko P.I. . Kickin' swine butt.

Shikigami no Shiro IIIEdit

  • Whoa, Fumiko! Time out! Time out!
