Oboro is one of the eight playable characters in Live A Live. His scenario is the Bakumatsu chapter, subtitled "Secret Orders". He is an untrained ninja of the Enma Clan, sent out on a mission to rescue a politician from Ode Iou, a power hungry man who wishes to drive Japan into war and ultimately become the ruler of the land.

Personality Edit

Not much is known about Oboro's personality, as during his chapter he remains relatively quiet, only speaking through minimal thoughts. However, it can be inferred that he has a strong sense of humanity and doesn't favor killing if he doesn't have to, as whenever you finish a fight, he mentions how many people he has slain. This plays into the dialogue at the end of the chapter, whether you went for 100 kills or 0 kills.

While you can say Oboro is very goal-orientated as well, you are able to abandon your mission at the start of the chapter by just walking out of the area. Of course, that just leads to a game over from a battle with the Enma Clan master.

Appearance Edit

Despite being a ninja, Oboro is very flashy with his looks. He has fluffy purple hair, a gold ninja outfit, and a red scarf. A mask covers half of his face, only allowing his blue eyes to be seen. He also dons a gold headband of sorts. He has a katana strapped to his back, which he uses as his main melee weapon. He wears socks with sandals like a true fashion disaster.
