Itsuki was a high school student before he was killed in his old world after a large truck took a sudden left turn. He is rumored to be the strongest Hero, but he has a messiah complex and claims everything he does is in the name of justice. He vanquishes those he sees as evildoers without thinking of the consequences of his actions. He likes to wait until people are in a crisis before acting so he can "save" them in a heroic fashion, going far enough to lie about his abilities to cover up his inaction before people fall into critical situations.

Being a bullied child has left Itsuki with a desire to be special and superior, his sense of justice and need for praise both stem from this, as does his inability to deal with the meek Rishia, who reminds him of his weakness. He can also be quite gullible and stupid, though not to Motoyasu's extent, as all of his teammates excluding Rishia are in fact extremely untrustworthy people who just praise him all the time.

He feels in his own mind that he's the strongest of the heroes, and he undergoes stealthy missions to kill corrupt nobles and save villages almost always just for the praise. He's extremely petty, and not very smart, believing Naofumi is guilty on both the false rape charge and later believing the Shield Hero stole credit for his achievements, which basically isn't hard for anyone to do because Itsuki pretends to be a robbin-hood-esk Hero who conceals his own activities often. He even believed it when his comrade framed Rishia for breaking an item of his which he was told, yet another deception by the way, had the power to raise his EXP intake. In short, he's stuck up, gullible, and wants to be praised by others. The one thing Naofumi has ever said to him that has genuinely enraged Itsuki is in fact as simple as "i thought you were better than this, my evaluation of you has dropped," to which he was willing to shoot the Shield Hero in the back of the head for it. He's even willing to conceal his power form allies and wait for them to actually be in danger before he'll step in so he can impress them.

Though he goes on about justice on a regular bases, his view of it is incredibly self-indulgent and one sided. As Naofumi and later Rishia both put it Itsuki's justice is not the same as someone else's justice, and there are as many types of justice in the world as their are people.

After the Spirit Turtle incident, his comrades all abandon him and he's reduced to a hollow shell of a man who goes around fighting in tournaments solely to gain praise from the crowd. He's later approached in this broken state and taken advantage of by Mald and Malty, as well as the revolutionary faction, and is given a Curse Series weapon based on Pride.

Under the influence of the Curse Series Itsuki wishes to bring everyone in the world to understand him and his justice, via brainwashing arrows, and goes completely off kilter, trying to outright kill Rishia when she said his stance on justice was utterly mistaken. He believes Naofumi is evil for taking slaves and turning away people who he could supposedly revive from the dead, because Malty tricked him into thinking the latter was possible. Naofumi goes on to remind him that slavery is not illegal in Melromarc, and everyone else present goes on to state Naofumi's slaves treat him like he's their mother more so than their master, and that the revolutionaries had brainwashed said slaves and were using them for their own convenience. His own Legendary Bow, if Rishia is to be believed, feels he's gone too far and gives its power to her specifically to help her bring a stop to it.

After suffering defeat at Rishia's hands he's become a total "yes man"; he would dance, handstand, or execute himself if ordered, and cannot tell lies. He's left in Rishia's care until he recovers from this state, though Naofumi is brought to wonder how she's treating him and has discovered that they sleep in the same bed.

Like the other three heroes he believed the world they had come into was a game, but he goes further than they do and believes Naofumi has met god I.e. the game master, and received powers from him to explain his superiority. Even after becoming a yes man and having everything shattered, he still feels Rishia being stronger than him has to be a cheat. Like the other heroes he thought he was immortal as well, since the "game" wouldn't let them die.

Post Curse The curse Itsuki received was a curse that effected thought process. His decision making power was nulled. The curse took away his will in itself. Itsuki was incapable of lying. Itsuki said the first thing that popped into his head. He couldn’t make up lies.

Itsuki’s quiver endlessly produces arrows for his bow, the arrows appear simply by tightening his grip on the bow. Itsuki was an E class ESPer, with the ability Accuracy. With Accuracy, if he set his aim, he could hit things much easier than normal humans. If needed, he could also act as a sniper from afar. It has quite a bit of combat capabilities. If the ranking is S-F, it’s around the lower end.Itsuki specializes in wing and earth magic. He can use a bit of recovery and support magic.

The Rising of the Shield Hero

Devil of Shield Arc c1-78

Cal Mira Island Arc c78-114

Spirit Turtle Arc c115-130

Itsuki’s group arrived before Ren and Motoyasu’s. Half a day faster at that. And he destroyed one of the statues just like the others.

But nothing happened, and the group was captured by the soldiers of the country.

Armor pushed all of the blame onto Itsuki. He shouted at him, telling him that he was no hero of justice.

With their trust broken, the group was thrown into jail. They were set to have an audience with the king… but the Spirit Turtle revived, and Itsuki was forced to challenge it.

But without lifting a finger… His comrades came to a silent agreement. They got together behind Itsuki’s back. They ran away, leaving him as a sacrifice to the Turtle.

Later Mald declared. That Justice without power was no Justice. Since Itsuki was unable to stop the Spirit Turtle, he was no justice.

To satisfy his sense of justice, he went off to challenge the Spirit Turtle, and his comrades had had enough and fled.

  17. Itsuki’s eyes turn red and begin to give off a suspicious light. Then the miasma envelops his body, forming a sort of armor. A winged, full-body armor, reminiscent of an angel, but some parts here and there seem demonic in design. The armor also bares resemblance to the combat suits wore by Rider and Ranger people. Hence, a status buffing skill.
  18. Countless orbs of light are scattered from his body. They destroy the ceiling (if there is one) and take on lion-like shapes in the sky. They then begin raining down endlessly upon the opponent.
  19. A skill that can block enemy movement by hitting their shadow.
  20. A restraint skill, arrows pins the opponent to the wall behind him or her.
  21. The bow multiplies and sprouts many wings imitating those of angels and devils, and all the bows fire at the opponent. The shots come together and form the shape of a bear-like beast as they fly at the opponent.
  22. A statue of a giant Bull opens up and locks the opponent within. Then the statue glows as it fills with fire.
