Burō (ブロウ) was a thug from the village of Oasis who caused a ruckus at Johnny's bar after he was denied a free meal. Kenshirō and Bat saw the commotion during their first visit to Oasis. Ken weakened the thug's muscle strength by striking his arms with the "Iron Muscle Severing Kick" (鋼筋分断脚 Gōkin Bundan Kyaku ), leaving Burō with barely enough strength to earn his meals with honest work, much to Burō's dismay. This makes Burō one of the few "giant thugs" to survive an encounter with Kenshiro. The fact that Ken did not kill him likely means that he saw a chance that Burō might actually make an honest living.
