Matsukaze (松風) is a warrior from the Petrification Kingdom. Born a few centuries prior to the present, he petrified himself in an event in which countless Petrification Weapons fell from the sky, in order to warn the future generations who can revive him with his knowledge to combat petrification. He was revived by the Kingdom of Science. He joins the Kingdom and currently acts as a body guard to Ginro, who resembles his late master.

Appearance

Matsukaze is a tall, young man with a relatively thin, but well-muscled build. His face is handsome and stern, and his black hair, which he keeps in a ponytail, extends to below his shoulders. He has a large crescent moon-shaped scar or tattoo on his forehead, and a marking shaped vaguely like the Petrification Weapon on his left arm (which he carved in his arm when he was being petrified).[2]

Prior to his Petrification, he wore a different outfit and lacked the scar on his arm and forehead. He also wielded a stone sword.[2]

Following his revival, he is given a new attire by Francois.[1] He carries a wooden stick on his side like a sword, but it is later destroyed by Tsukasa[3] and replaced with a bamboo practice sword.[2]

Personality

Matsukaze is an honorable, dutiful man. He is quick to thank Senku for reviving him, but immediately comes to the defense of Ginro (whom he believes to be his Lord at the time) when he appears to be in distress, and apologizes for his inability to protect him due to the petrification. Despite learning Ginro is not his Lord, Matsukaze continues to protect him, as Ginro is a distant relative. He will also apologized, should he overstep his bounds, as he did so after he drunkenly asked Tsukasa to train him.

Like most Stone World people, he is amazed by new things, such as his own revival and the formula that depetrifies people.

He respects fellow warriors, humbly asking for a sparring match to see how his own strength compares. Upon Tsukasa's revival, Matsukaze was willing to wait for some time to allow the man to recover, showing he does not wish to rush anyone should they need time to recover. He also showed himself willing to accept defeat after acknowledging the strength of his opponent.

Abilities and Skills

Matsukaze is one of the ten warriors of the Kingdom of Science. He possesses great skill that makes him a valuable asset to the Kingdom.

Physical Abilities

Matsukaze wields considerable strength and speed. In a flashback, he was strong enough to take down several enemies and not be harmed.[2] He could hunt and kill large American Alligators with help from the others.[4]

Upon seeing Ginro being attacked, he proceeded to blitz into the middle of the confrontation, deflecting attacks from both Kohaku and Kirisame (who are among the most dangerous fighters in their groups) simultaneously and removed Ginro from the area. This was notable, as he had only recently awoke from petrification.[1] However, he wasn't skilled enough to fight against Tsukasa or Hyoga in sparring matches with them. Tsukasa noted that if properly trained in modern martial arts, Matsukaze would be a tough opponent even for himself.

He has good perception, as he could tell from a glance that Tsukasa Shishio was a skilled warrior. He is quickly defeated by Tsukasa in a sparring match but his skill was acknowledged and Tsukasa wondered how strong he'd get in the future. Along with Hyoga and Tsukasa, he could feel something was amiss before they were attacked by Stanley.[5]

He possesses good endurance, as he was grazed by a bullet from a machine gun, while calling it a scratch.

Weapons

Matsukaze possesses some rudimentary swordsmanship. As he once wielded a stone like blade in the past, he used it to kill several enemies.

History

Matsukaze Petrifying

Matsukaze petrifies himself

According to Senku, Matsukaze was born a few centuries after the first Petrification event. As mentioned by himself, he was the loyal servant of an unknown master who resembled Ginro.[1] Matsukaze witnessed several Petrification Weapons fall from the sky, before he witnessed several people being turned to stone.

He and his master dealt with several brigades who sought to harness the weapons for greed. Matsukaze was forced to cut his master's arm off after it was petrified.

After his master died, Matsukaze slew countless brigades and destroyed all but one of the weapons before allowing himself to be petrified, hoping the future generations would combat the Petrification Weapons like him and his late-master. He carved the shape of the weapon into his arm in order to warn the future generations as he was petrifying.[2]

At some point after his petrification, he ended up in the sea as a statue until he was found by Taiju.

Synopsis

Treasure Island Arc

He is accidentally collected by Taiju, while the latter was collecting the petrified bodies of their allies. Matsukaze is left petrified, as he is missing an arm.[6]

New America City Arc

Matsukaze2

Matsukaze depetrified

After the battle, his arm is found and reattached. Although they know nothing of him, Senku later depetrified him after Soyuz recognized that the symbol on his arm resembled the Medusa device. He thanks the Kingdom of Science for freeing him and saves Ginro, due to his resemblance to his former lord and shows off some of his skill by rescuing him from Kirisame and Kohaku. He relays some his past, before he is cut off by Senku and Ryusui, to his shock.[1]

Matsukaze then witnessed Senku and allies revive several of the petrified villagers. He is greatly amazed by the feat. Matsukaze wishes the formula existed in his time, while telling Chrome that most of the Petrification Devices were destroyed by his master and the last one was seized by a brigade. Matsukaze then joins the Kingdom of Science by becoming a subordinate to Ginro and carrying supplies on the Perseus. [7]

After returning to the Kingdom of Science, he witnesses the revival of Tsukasa Shishio. When Tsukasa addresses Senku on the situation, Matsukaze remarks on his forwardness, something the others aren't surprised on. Matsukaze then observed that Tsukasa is a skilled fighter. Curious about the latter's skill, he challenges Tsukasa to a sparring match but is easily bested by his opponent and in awe at his defeat, he surrenders.[8]

Matsukaze is present when the globe constructed by Kaseki and Yuzuriha is finished. He listened to Senku revealing the journey to travel the world and create new cities. [9]

During Minami's interview of the crew, Matsukaze declares his desire of defeating the Whyman, as he believes he had something to do with the fate that befell his island. Ginro mentioned that he tried to sneak away but Matsukaze carried him back onboard the Perseus along with the supplies.[10]

During the party after the poker game, a drunk Ginro asks Matsukaze on his past and he tells the story of how the Petrification Weapons got to Treasure Island, how his master died, and how he ultimately came to be petrified. He receives a cocktail from Francois, and passes out after one sip.[11] He wakes up and participates in weapons training with the revived Hyoga and the other fighters aboard the Perseus.[12]

Matsukaze is later amazed by the sights of the sea along with the other Stone world residents. He is pleasantly amazed to see them reach land.[13]

When the Perseus arrives in San Francisco, the warrior team follows the exploration crew on the motorboat. Soon alligators attack, though Matsukaze and the other warriors defeat them and use the Alligator meat to restock on supplies. Matsukaze is exceptionally pleased with the hamburgers that François made from them. [14]

They continue to find corn that has been scattered through the river. That night, the crew set camp before Senku notes that corn was growing, since certain bugs are attracted and questions that. However, Tsukasa and the others note on an eerie feeling, something Matsukaze agrees on before Tsukasa tells everyone to retreat inside the boat, where they could take cover. Surely enough, bullets rain down and Matsukaze narrowly avoids the attacks ducks. After the gun stops shooting, Ryusui has the group enter the boats before fleeing the scene. [15]

The group escape on the river, but Ukyo hears an engine, before they are shocked to witness an aircraft flying above them. When the pilot resumes attacking, Matsukaze's shoulder is grazed in the process. Fortunately, Senku comes up with a plan and has Kirisame bring the plane down with a substance, as the pilot escapes. Senku has the plane salvaged, wanting to use it in the future while Ryusui supports this plan.[16]

Matsukaze is later present for the planning. He remarks the drawn descriptions make the plan more easy to follow. [17]

He is later overjoyed at enjoying ice cream after Senku recreates it.[18]

Relationship

Ginro

Matsukaze mistook Ginro for his former lord and saved Ginro from Kirisame and Kohaku. Ginro was amazed by his skill and to learn he resembled the latter's master who he thinks is a distant relative. Ginro then made Matsukaze his subordinate.[1] With Matsukaze, Ginro is happy to gain protection from his former "tormentors", bragging about his strength to the others' dismay. However, he felt humble when he watched Tsukasa defeat him in a match.

Although Matsukaze has learned Ginro isn't really his lord, he continues to address as such, as seen when he carried Ginro on the ship, despite the latter's obvious lies to avoid trouble. Ginro once felt bad, when he drunkenly asked Matsukaze about his master and seeing his sad reaction.[2]

Tsukasa Shishio

They meet after Tsukasa's revival, Matsukaze was surprised that Tsukasa asked Senku about the situation.

He observed Tsukasa and could tell he was a strong warrior and requested a sparring match, which the latter accepted. In the end, Matsukaze was defeated and surrendered, while left in awe at his strength. Tsukasa, in return, acknowledges how strong Matsukaze was and complimented him.[3]

During the voyage to America, Tsukasa was sullen at hearing Matsukaze's past before an inebriated Matsukaze requested that he trained him. Although Matsukaze apologized for overstepping, Tsukasa agreed to this, leading to Hyoga, Homura, and Mozu bring revived.[2]

Whyman

Matsukaze voices a desire to defeat the mysterious Whyman, as it is speculated they were the one who sent the Petrification Weapon to his island leading to chaos and his master's death.[10] Matsukaze is aware that revenge will not bring his master back but he needs to stop this evil foe.[13]
