Kubaru (クバル) was a member of Jagi's gang who executed villagers that refused to pay tribute to his master (who at the time was posing as Kenshirō). Kubaru would bury certain villagers down to their head and then force other villagers to behead them with his saw. Those that did not comply, he killed with his sledgehammer. However, Kubaru met his comeuppance when the real Kenshirō arrived at his turf and had his sawn head in half when he requested Ken to use the saw.

Kubaru in the 1986 movie

  • In the 1986 movie, Rei is the one who kills him instead, although the scene plays out identically otherwise.
  • The name Kubaru was given to him in the computer game Hokuto no Ken Online.[1] The character was nameless in the manga and anime.
  • Kubaru appears in episode 8 of DD Hokuto no Ken. When Jagi knocks over some plants in front of a cafe, the owner, Kubaru viciously beats him up as the narrator quips "a very End of the Century Cafe owner." Ironic as Jagi was Kubaru's boss in the main series.
