After Jakoh was defeated by the Hokuto Army, Taiga kidnapped Lin and activated the self-destruct mechanism that was installed into the Imperial Capital, resulting in its destruction. Taiga fled overseas to the Kingdom of Shura with Lin in order to lure Ken and Falco to their deaths. However, Taiga's entire unit was annihilated upon their arrival to Shura and Taiga himself was mortally wounded. Before dying, Taiga encountered Falco and taunted him that hell itself awaited him on the island.
Taiga is an anime-only character from Hokuto no Ken 2 who appears alongside Boltz as replacements for Jakoh's sons, Jask and Sheeno. They were created alongside a third character named Bronza by artist Masami Suda during the pre-production stages of the anime to serve as additional Gento Kō Ken practitioners based on different colors. At the time the manga was still in the early chapters of the Tentei story arc and their roles in the story were not yet fully realized. Their wardrobe were based on Solia.
Taiga's only appearance outside the anime is in the Hokuto no Ken 2 Famicom video game, where he appears as the end-boss of Stage 3. In the game he serves as the warden of a concentration camp for rebels, a role originally served by Beron in the manga and anime. Unlike the anime, Taiga co-exists alongside Jask in the Famicom game, as Jask appears later in the game as a sub-boss in Stage 6.
