"Hrrrmph?! No mercy! Kill her dead!! The great Oarashi is the strongest on the island! Now witness my miracle power..."
— Oarashi, Chapter 120
Oarashi (オオアラシ) is a warrior of the Petrification Kingdom. He's considered to be one of the most powerful people on the island.
Oarashi is a very muscular man with a large build. He has a solid, square jawline and a large mouth with a deep labiomental fold. He occasionally has dimples when he smiles wide. His eyes are deep-set and shaded in black all the way up to his eyebrow. He has small, dark pupils with no shine. The tail end of his eyebrows have a large swirl curling up and inward, similar to the swirl designs on the other Petrification Kingdom warriors. He has a wide, flat nose, that is slightly upturned with a low bridge. He also seems to have no hair anywhere on his body.
He wears a pair of simple pants, wrapped tight around his ankles and held up by a rope belt adorned with the symbol of Treasure Island. The symbol is an upright isosceles triangle with a divot taken out of the bottom and a starburst shape set behind it. Beneath the symbol, there is a large curling loincloth that reaches to his knees. Oarashi forgoes a shirt. He also wears a headdress shaped like a jackal’s head that covers his upper shoulders, scalp and nose.
Oarashi is boisterous and proud of his strength. He has a tendency to include the word miracle or some variation of it whenever he speaks, especially when describing his own power. He isn't the smartest person and knows it, but since it's the only thing preventing him being the best warrior, he takes pride in that fact. He has a tendency of forgetting or mistaking uncommon words, such as forgetting the word "fate" and guessing "fat" until someone corrects him. His verbal quirk seems to be huffing at beginning of his statement ("Hrrrmph" in English, "クウ〜" kuuu in Japanese).
Because he isn't the smartest, if he can't solve a problem with brute force he can become scared. As he was horrified and worried about Ibara's plans.
Abilities and Skills
- Immense Strength: Oarashi is incredibly physically powerful, and is able to throw off Magma and Kinro at the same time. He is, however, no match for Taiju, who effortlessly held him down despite the size difference. However, he is an inferior fighter compared to Moz.
- Burst of Speed: He is not limited by the size of his muscles and is also surprisingly fast. He was able to swim then run to the centre of Treasure Island in less than 15 minutes while being pursued, despite attempts to stop him.
- Lack of Intelligence: The only thing keeping Oarashi from surpassing Mozu as best warrior of the kingdom is his intelligence.
Oarashi is shown using both his bare fists for fighting as well as a macuahuitl with jagged stone teeth and a slightly more rounded appearance. The handle seems to be long enough to be wield two-handed as well.
Oarashi is first introduced flexing after smashing the petrified statue of someone who had broken the kingdom's rules, and trying to intimidate everyone around. Amaryllis, hoping to distract him from what Kohaku is doing, flirts with him, leaving him flustered as he blurts out a silly response about his "miraculous muscles". Later, when Kohaku is setting up the silent bombs, Oarashi is distracted once more by Amaryllis's dancing. He almost catches them from the noise, but Ginro grabs Oarashi's spear and starts showing off with it, impressing him. He soon finds the broken Soyuz capsule and tells Ibara that it probably just broke apart naturally since they didn't hear anyone smash it.
After ransacking the Perseus, Oarashi acts as a guard for Ibara's intervention to find any intruders. He carries a petrified Ryusui to the main tree and makes sure everyone takes a turn smashing him. Later, when things sour for the Kingdom of Science infiltrators, Oarashi tries to kill Kohaku but gets stopped by Mozu on the grounds that it would be a waste of beauty.
When Mozu becomes the mysterious hooded warrior, Oarashi takes him on and fails spectacularly, having both Anubis ears and the part over his neck smashed off. He then goes to Ibara and Kirisame to tell them what happened, exaggerating the power of this mysterious fighter. At Wavebreak Cliff, Oarashi commands a platoon of fighters, ready to fight the Kingdom of Science. He goes up against Kinro, who breaks the nasal bar off of his helmet and pushes him back.
Ibara then concocted a scheme to take down the Kingdom of Science that would require Oarashi petrifying everyone. He forced Oarashi to swallow the Petrification Weapon after setting it for a radius of 2000 metres in 15 minutes, telling him the only safe place is the centre of the island. Oarashi, scared and confused, ran as instructed while being chased by the Kingdom of Science and several Treasure Islanders, everyone wanting to stop everyone else. He breaks the hold of Magma and Kinro but is eventually stopped by Taiju. They find that Oarashi isn't holding the device and they're unable to stop the petrifying light.
Smashing open his petrified body, Ibara retrieves the device from his stomach. Oarashi was later put back together and revived by the Kingdom of Science and at the party, he witnessed Kirisame bow to Soyuz. They fixed up his Anubis headdress as well and said farewell to the Perseus as the Kingdom of Science returned to the mainland.
Due to the Petrification weapon being reactivated by the Kingdom of Science, a large Petrification beam was launched to petrify the whole world. Oarashi was then petrified along with those on Treasure Island.
- His name is homophonous to the Japanese word for "Raging Storm",
- His hair, if he has any, is never shown.
- He has a crush on Amaryllis.
- With Kirisame and Moz joining the Kingdom of Science, Oarashi is now the strongest warrior in the Petrification Kingdom.
- (To Amaryllis, who is trying to distract him) "Hrmph! You've got a good eye, woman! You can see the miraculosity of my miracle muscles. Go on! Enjoy it to the fullest!!"
