You’d better not judge a book by its cover… Or else you’ll die!!

Hien is a former antagonist and major character of the Sakigake!! Otokojuku series. He is a member of the Three Fists.


Hien is considerably more effeminate than the rest of Otokojuku's cast. He has long, blond hair with bangs. In the anime, his hair color is changed to pink. While he occasionally wears an Otokojuku uniform, he usually wears a white kung-fu uniform in combat.

In Sora Yori Takaku he is seen wearing a set of surgical scrubs.

He is initially presented as a narcissist, but from the Tenchou Gorin on go, he has more a calmer and charismatic personality. He shows no mercy for his enemies.

Powers and Abilities

Hien is a master of the Birdman Fist (鳥人拳, Chojinken), one of the most graceful arts of Chinese kung-fu. Hien can move as swift as a swallow and attack as sharp as a hawk.


Thousand Cranebeak Needles (鶴嘴千本, Kakushi Senbon): The mainstay weapon of Hien's style. With his pinpoint accuracy and knowledge of Chinese acupuncture, Hien can throw his needles to cause a variety of effects, from paralysis to muscular control. He can use these weapons for the following techniques:

  • Crucifix Strike (十字打ち, Jujiuchi): Hien throws his needles in the shape of a cross.
  • Nerve Severing (断神節, Danshinsetsu): By piercing his opponent's neural ganglia, Hien can paralyze different parts of his opponent's body.
  • Successive Binding Strike (連結衝, Renketsusho): Hien can drive in a protruding needle by striking it with yet another needle.
  • Three-Point Strike (三点衝, Santensho): A simultaneous attack with three needles. Nearly impossible to dodge at close range.
  • Invisible Kill of Ignorance (無明透殺, Mumyo Tosatsu): Hien's psychological tactic. Hien announces to his opponent that he will be throwing invisible needles, and then makes throwing motions, while launching pebbles with his feet to make the sound of the needle hitting the ground. When Hien's opponent realizes that the so-called invisible needles are a bluff, Hien throws a real needle too thin to be seen by the human eye. The overconfident enemy does not dodge this last strike, which delivers a lethal blow.

Claws of the Hawk (鷹爪殺, Youkasatu): Hien's melee weapon, which is a set of iron claws.

Verse of Demise (終焉節, Shuensetsu): The final secret technique of the Birdman Fist. Hien pierces his own nerves with the Thousand Cranebeak Needles to temporarily heighten his physical abilities. However, since these nerves are all below a major artery, use of this technique inevitably results in death by blood loss.

  • Ultimate Light of the Twin Palms (双掌極煌, Sosho Kyokuko): A double-handed piercing technique, augmented by the Verse of Demise.
  • Flying Thunder Needle (飛雷針, Hiraishin): Hien throws a needle to his opponent, and another towards a source of electricity. The electricity is conducted between the needles, causing the opponent to be struck by lightning.

Neck-Twisting Spinning Kick (捻頸転脚, Nenkei Tenkyaku): A lethal kick that snaps and twists the opponent's neck.

Flying Bird Grave Fall (飛鳥憭墜乱, Hichoryo Tsuiran): Hien first throws a Cranebeak Needle into the ground, embedding it vertically. He then kicks his opponent into the air, grabs hold of his opponent, then drives the opponent's head right onto the protruding needle. This technique can cause a painless death.

Cranebeak Crimson Mist (鶴嘴紅漿霧, Kakushi Koshomu): The ultimate technique of the Birdman Fist. Hien compresses his blood flow into one point so he can spray it like a mist. By then staining his Cranebeak Needles with his blood, he can camouflage his needles, and bend them into boomerangs. Like the Verse of Demise, this technique has the risk of Hien dying of blood loss.


The Four Great Trials of Terror 

The Great Trembling Conquest of the Unified Eight

The Great Heaven-Challenging Olympic Tournament 

The Battle of Seven Tusks 

After the daibukai Tournament, Hien and the rest of his classmates went to Second Year class. But Director Edajima was kidnapped by the Tusks of Darkness organization, who challenged Otokojuku to break into Seven Tusk. Along with them would be the warriors who had been defeated on the Daibukai.

Hien was left out during the First Tusk, but was voluntarily chosen to participate in the Second Tusk. After Deng Fu-jie's victory, Hien saved some chicks from being eaten by a feline.

Afterward, he volunteered to face the next Battleground, where he had to face Devarez. Using his Majou Ryuukihou, he took advantage of the air currents to fly towards Hien, trying to hit him with his ax. Hien dodged and counterattacked using his senbons...which were rendered useless by the magnets on Devarez's helmet!!

He managed to hit Hien with his ax, but before he could deliver the final blow, a bird began to attack him, although he quickly managed to get rid of it. Hien picked her up and realized that she was the mother of the chicks he had saved earlier. But Devarez took advantage of the fact that he was distracted to attack him from behind. Sitting back, Hien threw his senbon ... and two of the bird's feathers at him! The feathers hit two vital points that caused him to lose his balance and fall into the abyss.

Once defeated, Hien thanked the bird for her help, and then returned to his friends.
