Masaru is a character from Live-A-Live. He is the Present Day Chapter protagonist. Masaru is a man from Japan that has the dream of being the strongest man on Earth, and fight various well-known fighters through the process. However, later on the game, after Masaru has defeated all the fighters, they all are killed by Odie Oldbright, the currently The Strongest and Odio's incarnation on the chapter.
