Kurochi, ("The Snake") is one of Akuma's bandits who has a position of some authority among the group.

He uses a musket, which proves to be a formidable long range weapon against Jack, his friends, and the citizens of Tamagashi Village.

Kurochi kills a number of the villagers, including Junichi and Hayato. By the end of the story he shoots Yuudai when he runs towards Neko. He is then killed by Neko as she cuts down the village watchtower which he was standing in.
