Shuren of the Flames (炎のシュレン Honō no Shuren?)
Shuren is a member of the Nanto Goshasei and leader of the Crimson Army. He uses a unique martial art which manipulates phosphorous to engulf enemies with deadly flames.
After the death of Huey, his "brother star", Shuren mobilizes his Crimson Army against Ken-Oh's forces to take his revenge. Shuren preemptively ambushes Ken-Oh's army by launching flaming arrows at them as they enter a valley.
Afterwards, Shuren fights against two of Ken-Oh's most disciplined warriors before challenging the man himself. Learning from Huey's mistake of fighting Raoh head-on, Shuren blinds Raoh with fire and manages to attack him from behind but Raoh reacts in time, crushing Shuren's fist and blocking his follow-up kick. With one final attempt, Shuren performs a self-immolating attack to ensure that Raoh will never reach the Last Nanto General. This proves futile against Raoh's strength, who declares that Shuren's flames will never consume his ambition and brutally snaps his neck.

TV SeriesEdit

In the anime series, Shuren holds a funeral pyre for his fallen comrade Huey by torching his castle to ensure there is no turning back for him and his army in their upcoming battle with Ken-Oh. He also fights against one of Ken-Oh's invasion forces before challenging the main army.

Shin Kyūseishu Densetsu Hokuto no KenEdit

In the OVA Yuria Den, Shuren teams up with Fudoh and Hyūi in their mission to capture Rei for the Last Nanto General.
In Raoh Den: Gekitō no Shō, there is a shorter version of Shuren's fight with Raoh. He launches a fireball at Raoh before flying at him head-on. Raoh easily deflects the attack, causing Shuren to burst into flames.
