Tsurugi was first shown to be very hostile towards soccer, despite being good at it. It is shown that he has an older brother, Tsurugi Yuuichi, who had gotten injured after trying to save Tsurugi from falling off the tree and lost his ability to walk. Despite his hard and cold side he is also shown to be caring, especially towards his older brother; an example would be when Tsurugi is shown to be agitated and worried as he watches his brother attempting to walk again with a nurse assisting him. He also gets angry when someone plays soccer in a bad way, as he did during the match of Raimon against Mannouzaka, when Isozaki Kenma tried to injure Tenma by tackling him. After being with Raimon for a while, he is shown to be more of the "quiet type" and a calmer person. He usually doesn't talk to the other members in Raimon and he doesn't like to get involved. Although he tries to act like he doesn't care for the Raimon members, it is shown that he clearly cares a lot for all of them. Tenma is shown to be closer to him compared to the other members of the Soccer Club.


Inazuma Eleven GO

Young Tsurugi.

He was first seen by Matsukaze Tenma in episode 1 attacking Raimon's second soccer team. There, Tsurugi challenged Tenma and shot at him with his hissatsu, Death Sword; miraculously, Tenma was able to block it without even using a hissatsu, which surprised everyone. Then Raimon's first team led by Shindou Takuto appeared to help the second team. His team, Kuro no Kishidan, and Raimon got into a match in which Raimon gets badly beaten. Sangoku Taichi wasn't able to stop Tsurugi's Death Sword during the match. Matsukaze helps by joining Raimon and Tsurugi is irritated by how fast Matsukaze can dribble. He then uses a Keshin called Kensei Lancelot which badly beats Matsukaze. Because of what has befallen Raimon and Matsukaze telling Shindou not to give up soccer, Shindou Takuto suddenly brings out his Keshin and went on a duel with Tsurugi but collapses afterwards. Afterwards the match ends Shindou is brought to the hospital and Tsurugi talks with the principal of Raimon. Later the whole Raimon team is shocked to hear that Tsurugi will join Raimon.

Ishido tells him that if he makes Raimon lose, his brother can have the surgery that will enable him to play soccer again. Tsurugi later asks Endou to let him take part in Raimon's next match. Minamisawa resigns from the team and Tsurugi is given the No.10 jersey.

At the beginning of the match, he shoots against Raimon's goal and makes an own goal. He tells to Raimon and Mannouzaka that he will destroy the Raimon soccer club on his own.

Later in episode 12, he saves when Isozaki Kenma tries to break the leg of Matsukaze Tenma with a dirty tackle and he uses Death Sword to hit a goal for Raimon after and thereby making the score 1-1. His second attempt to score a goal is blocked by the Mannouzaka goalkeeper who uses his Keshin, Kikai Hei Galleus, to block Death Sword. At his next attempt at shooting, he released his Keshin and managed to use a new hissatsu technique Lost Angel. It made the goal.

After seeing his brother coming to his room, he kept on insisting him to go and join them as it isn't late for him to go and join them. After it his brother learned that Tsurugi was playing for Fifth Sector because of him. He overheard Tsurugi talking to his former coach from a distance by accident, where Kyousuke stated that would be impossible to Raimon win against Teikoku with only ten players as Teikoku Academy is stronger is then them. Kuroki Zenzou then said that he expect this, but, if Teikoku loses, Tsurugi wouldn't receive the money for his brother surgery.

During episode 17 Yuuichi convinced Tsurugi not to do that, by saying that he never asked him to make him walk up again, and to help his teammates in the semi-finals against Teikoku. He arrives at Teikoku stadium during the halftime and asks Endou to put him in the match, which he replies that the team would choose that. As Tenma choses to believe in Tsurugi, the other members also lets him enter in the match. As the second half begins, he quickly steals the ball from Itsumi Kunihiko and proceeds to use Ultimate Thunder.

In episode 28, he was not worried like the others when Endou left the team because he knew that Endou would come back. During the second half of the match against Kidokawa Seishuu, he became a midfielder to put Nishiki as a forward; because of this, Nishiki was able to score three goals and Raimon won.

It is shown in episode 33, that he was standing by his brother's side who was trying to walk.

When Tsurugi and Tenma got to the hospital, the doctor told them that his brother, Yuuichi will be taking the surgery.

In episode 47, he was shown in the locker room with his other teammates.

Inazuma Eleven GO Galaxy

In episode 1, he is behind Shinsuke on the Raimon line up. When Tenma wondered about who will be chosen, Tsurugi told him that he sounded like he will surely be chosen. Later he was chosen as a member of Inazuma Japan, but was shocked that only him, Tenma and Shindou were the chosen members from Raimon, and that they know none of the other members.

Later, they went to the change room and changed to the Inazuma Japan uniform and said something to all the members. The exhibition match started against Teikoku Gakuen, he received a pass from Shindou but was blocked, and the ball went to Tenma. After no member interact with Shindou's Kami no Takuto FI, the trio realized that none of the other member can play soccer. When Ibuki Munemasa blocked Mikado Haruma's Koutei Penguin 7, he complimented him for knowing what to do as a footballer, but was shocked like Tenma and Shindou when he dribbled the ball up to the field with his hand. After Shindou used Kami no Takuto FI yet again, Tenma and him scored a goal using Fire Tornado DD, which resulted in Inazuma Japan's only goal in the exhibition match. Just as they were celebrating their goal, the match ended.

In episode 2, him, Tenma and Shindou came to Odaiba Soccer Garden together for the first day's practise. After hearing other members' introducing themselve, Shindou is pissed off but he kept silent most of the time. While others have their ball control practises, Tsurugi and Ibuki practised together for his keeping skill, which showed that Ibuki could not keep out any of Tsurugi's shoots, frustrating himself more.

At the first night, he, along with Tenma, came with Shindou to talk with Kuroiwa Ryuusei. After Kuroiwa walked away, Ibuki showed up, saying he is Japan's goalkeeper, which Shindou replied that he won't be of any use under his current condition. Ibuki therefore asked Tsurugi to practice with him, which Shindou proposed that he will practice with him instead of Tsurugi.

The next day, after the co-coach announced that their first opponent will be Fire Dragon, he is shown to be paired up with Ibuki to continue his keeping practice, which Ibuki still could not keep out Tsurugi's shoots but still asked for more. He is also shown to be practicing with Tenma while others rested.

The next day, before their match with Fire Dragon started, Tenma and Shindou were arguing about the new members but Tsurugi interrupted and told them there's a problem in the locker. Tenma, Shindou and he were shocked that actually all eight players were recruited, each with a certain motive. The trio listened in shock as Manabe about them about the motives of Tetsukado, Sakura and Ibuki, and also Matatagi's motive.

When the match started, Tsurugi passed the ball to Matatagi, who instead of passing it back, went up but the ball got stolen easily. Tsurugi ordered others to stop him, in which only Sakura listened but the ball went to Lee Chung-Yun, Fire Dragon's captain.

In episode 3, observing from what he could see now, Tsurugi thought to himself that maybe Shindou's plan was really for the good of the team. After Tenma got past by Kazaana Drive, Tsurugi and Tenma started to dribble up the field together, and even though Matatagi asked for Tsurugi to pass to him, he passed to Tenma instead, but he got blocked by Jibashiri Kaen shortly afterward. After Matatagi asked the trio to let him join them, Tsurugi also agreed that it's worth a try. After Tsurugi's throw-in to Tenma and he passed it to Matatagi, He was shocked that Matatagi kicked the ball with too much force. After Matatagi successfully passed, he passed it back to Tenma, who passed it to Tsurugi. Toward the end of the match, Tsurugi received a pass from Tenma and scored the final goal with Devil Burst.

In episode 4, he was shown talking with Matatagi before practise began, and he was also shocked about the contract's terms. During practice, he criticized both Sakura and Matatagi, as both of them did not practice in the way the trio expected. After practise ended, Shindou asked Tsurugi why were Matatagi and Sakura chosen specifically, in which Tsurugi responded that perhaps they have something that sets them apart from other players.

After Tenma and the others members' temporary meeting, Tsurugi continued to practice, but his practice came to a halt when Ibuki asked him to talk.

The next day, as Shindou asked where was Tsurugi, Aoi told him that he wanted to practice alone. In the evening, it was shown that Tsurugi was practicing with Ibuki. As he intended to end the practice, Ibuki told him to continue. Tsurugi at this point told him he won't hold back either.

The next day, he was shocked that Tenma told them that he wrote the e-mails to assemble everybody who wanted to leave the team. Kuroiwa then told them that if the members pass the With-drawl Test, they will be allowed to leave the team, but he will still fulfill their contract's terms, much to Tsurugi, Aoi and Shindou's shock.

In episode 5, Tsurugi was shocked that the withdrawal test required five shoots missed. When Tenma wondered how to stick the team together, Tsurugi told him to leave them, that he was surprised that there were still Matatagi and Ibuki staying. When Matatagi told Tenma the same theory and told them they should get out, Tsurugi was shown looking at him strangely.

During the test, he was shown watching the test alongside Tenma and Aoi. He also commented that Tetsukado has got a powerful kick. When Tetsukado shooted a goal in the end, Tsurugi commented that it was a nice shoot. After Morimura's shoot miraculously went into the goal, Tenma, Aoi and he were all shocked.

In episode 6, he was shown to be training with Ibuki. After the match started, he received a pass from Tenma and scored a goal with Bicycle Sword, which surprised Tenma. When mostly all the members succumbed to Suck Out, Tsurugi commented that it felt like fighting with the ocean itself. As Tenma and Shindou commented that the data is different with the actual team, Tsurugi doubted that the data may be wrong.

In episode 7, Tsurugi made a pass to Konoha before Sakura crashed into her purposely. When Sakura said that she didn't feel well, Tsurugi stated that since there weren't any other substitute players, they can only switch the positions. While Sakura turned to look at the direction of her parents, Tsurugi noticed it and looked to the same direction.

After receiving Sakura's pass, he kicked it out, but Matatagi caught up with the ball and scored a goal with Parkour Attack. Later he interrupted a pass and passed the ball to Sakura, who failed to follow Kami no Takuto to break out from Suck Out. When Sakura looked to her parents' direction again, Tsurugi asked her if there's anyone she knew was on the audience. When Sakura replied that her parents were watching and stated that they were probably not happy of her not showing off herself more, Tsurugi stated that it was not true, as the goal wouldn't be scored without her passing, and that later her parents will understand her love for soccer, to which Sakura happily agreed.

In episode 8, he joined in the offence group and attempted to score a goal, but was blocked by Ibuki. He was shown to be watching the argument between Tenma and Shindou. Just as Tsurugi was about to leave after the dismiss, Ibuki asked him to train with him, and he agreed. Later it was shown that they trained together. He had also returned to the center after hearing about Kusaka's arrest, and heard about Kusaka's background story along with the other members.

In episode 9, Tsurugi was shown to be watching the argument between Tenma and Shindou. After the match resumed, Tsurugi received a pass from Tenma, but got blocked by a Shamshir player. He was also shown to be shocked about Shamshir's tactic Dai Sabaku Sunaarashi. When Kusaka was provoked to steal the ball from Shamshir, Tsurugi told him not to be anxious and observed the opponents' movements.

After Matatagi scored a goal with Parkour Attack, Tsurugi evened the score with Bicycle Sword.

After the match ended, Tsurugi stated as the matches progressed, everybody is closer to one another, and their middle point is Tenma, to which Shindou only said an "ah" as a reply.

In episode 10, Tsurugi trained with the rest of the members on the football field, and scored a goal against Ibuki. He was shown to be happy after Shindou gave some advice to Tetsukado.

The next morning, the whole team went to the Black Room, a virtual reality training facility. He was shown to be shocked when steel frames fell to the ground. After seeing Tenma determined to finish the training, all the other members, along with Shindou and Tsurugi, also joined the training, except Manabe, Minaho and Ibuki. On the next day, he also trained in the virtual urban city street, swiftly dodging all the steel frames, which shocked Tetsukado and Sakura.

In episode 11, Tsurugi and Tenma were talking about the team while overseeing the eight members' training. Shindou pointed out that Konoha was not present, and Tsurugi remembered she was already not here during breakfast. After he heard about Konoha leaving the team, he did not went out to search for her, but both Shindou and him believed that Tenma could do something about it.

In episode 12, Tsurugi paired up with Manabe in an offense-versus-defense training, and he easily got away from Manabe.

In the beginning of the match, he called out to Tenma to pass the ball to him, but was blocked by Napa Ladam. When Shindou used Kami no Takuto FI again, Tsurugi received a pass from Matatagi and feigned a shoot, and passed the ball to Kusaka, who used Kyoubou Head and scored a goal. Tsurugi was also shown to be complimenting Kusaka for his reaction.

In episode 13, he received a pass from Matatagi but was blocked by Bark Sepakro immediately. After Tsurugi received a pass from Tenma, he was blocked by Death Scythe Middle. While Matatagi was pondering on how to fight against Mach Tiger, Tsurugi told him that forwards could not show irritation or worries.

Later, Tsurugi crashed into Bark, but all the others were distracted due to the argument between Manabe and Minaho. After receiving a pass from Matatagi, he scored a goal with Bicycle Sword. Under Minaho's instruction, Tsurugi passed the ball to Tenma (to prevent Death Scythe Middle) and Tenma scored the final goal with God Wind.

In episode 14, he had a talk with Tetsukado. Tsurugi told him that he needed to be careful, because soccer could be happy, but he could not purge himself to fast to, or else it would be dangerous. Tetsukado asked him if he had the same experience, and he told him that a friend who was formerly an enemy helped him to cross his obstacle.

The next day, before the practice match started, he was nearly hit by a football, but he ducked and kicked it back to the kicker, who was revealed to be Hakuryuu. He was shocked to see Hakuryuu and the other opponents they have encountered during Holy Road, appeared as Resistance Japan, their practice match opponent. He was also shocked to see Shoot Chain. After Tetsukado failed to receive the pass from Shindou, Tsurugi asked him what happened back then, and told him that soccer wasn't all happy and joyful as he thought, and that if he tried to run away from it instead of facing it, soccer would eventually crush him. After the match resumed, he received a pass from Tenma and shot with Bicycle Sword, scoring the only goal of Inazuma Japan. After the match ended, he helped Tetsukado to get up and told him that Soccer is a living thing. It's a wild beast that will attack you if you look away from it (the proverb of episode 14).

In episode 15, Tenma, Shindou and him were the only members who attended the training, while all the others trained in the Black Room instead. Tsurugi was happy that the eight members became serious at training, and told Tenma that they finally found a way face soccer with their own ways. While watching Ibuki training along with Shindou and Kusaka, he asked Ibuki why he chose the goalkeeper position.

In episode 16, he scored the second goal for Inazuma Japan with Bicycle Sword after receiving a pass from Tenma.

In episode 17, he was shocked that Storm Wolf's players had improved their movements. Though he was more surprised when Tenma said that he didn't want this to be their last match. Under Manabe and Minaho's strategy, Tsurugi was able to tie the score with Bicycle Sword. He was shocked like the others when they saw Konoha tackling a player with some aura of Soul. He was also shocked to see Storm Wolf's players changing into aliens and a spaceship appearing in the sky.

In episode 18, he heard about Grand Celesta Galaxy and Earth Eleven along with the team. He was also shocked to know about the true reason to choose the eight members as Earth Eleven along with him, Tenma and Shindou.

In episode 19, he, like the others, was impressed by Zanakurou's dribbling and shooting skill. Later, Yuuichi visited him and wished him good luck, and told him to play in the match of Raimon VS Earth Eleven. Later, he boarded Galaxy Nauts Gou along with the other members of Earth Eleven.

In episode 23 he uses Bicycle Sword to score the final goal against the Sandorius Eleven. After the match, he is seen looking at the formations on his tab and hears the doorbell. As he answers it, he sees the fake Tsurugi and gets his forehead touched, which causes him to go unconscious. He is then kidnapped and is seen in a capsule asleep.

In episode 24, after Tsurugi was brought to Faram Obius by Lalaya Obies' order, she had a conversation with him. She asked Tsurugi to serve her, in which he refused. Later, Tsurugi was given a tour around the city and he was impressed by her leadership. After he reluctantly agreed on obeying her, she was happy and suddenly asked him to become her husband, shocking Tsurugi.

In episode 25, Lalaya told Tsurugi the reason why she wanted to marry him was because he looked like her father. Her father was a powerful king who knew how to rule ethically. She wanted to make Tsurugi the new king because she believed that he could make right decisions like her father did.

In episode 26, Lalaya asked Tsurugi if he had decided to become the king of Faram Obius. However, Tsurugi still couldn't make his decision so he asked her to let him go around Faram Obius alone to gain more knowledge about it. She disagreed at first but when Tsurugi promised her that he would come back, she gave him permission to have freedom for one day.

In episode 28, Tsurugi returned and asked Lalaya what her responsibility of being a queen is. She replied saying that her responsibility was to make the planet feel happy. Tsurugi then told her that the planet was suffering, and that someone locked her up in the palace and controlled the planet at their own will. As Lalaya objected Tsurugi's statement, he offered to take Lalaya on a tour around the city. Tsurugi then led her around the city, and later into a slum in the city. He told her that the people living there had their properties robbed by the nobles. When Tsurugi asked if this was the planet her father desired to establish, Lalaya cried.

In episode 32, Tsurugi told her that Ruza Donolzen was the one behind everything that happened to the people of Faram Obius. Before Lalaya made the decision of imprisoning Donolzen, she came and imprisoned both her and Tsurugi into the jail. In the jail, Lalaya's worries grew, and Tsurugi consoled her, saying that everything would be fine.

In episode 36, Lalaya and Tsurugi were saved out of the prison by Minel Eiba and two guards. Later, while watching the view of Faram Obius, he was confronted by Acrous Obies (in the form of king), who told him an important message. When Lalaya told Minel to forfeit the match, Tsurugi stepped in the scene and said that he would join Faram Dite. He also said that they would win in the match against Earth Eleven, and that this should be the road Faram Obius should embark on. Later, he learnt the truth about Ixal and Ixal Fleet from Ozrock. When he saw the members of Faram Dite awe-stricken, he teased them that the people of the strongest planet in the galaxy could actually be afraid, which raised the captain, Argo Burgess's pique. Though, he successfully raised the spirit of the whole team. Later, he appeared in front of Earth Eleven in Faram Dite's uniform, which greatly shocked Tenma and the whole Earth team.

In episode 37, he did normal shots twice but was punched back by Ibuki and then he used Bicycle Sword to score the first goal for Faram Dite.


Inazuma Eleven GO the Movie: The Ultimate Bonds Gryphon

Tsurugi appeared in the movie with the rest of Raimon's team. They were surprised to see they were on the God Eden, an island where the Fifth Sector train SEEDs. After he was awake, a man called Kibayama Douzan appeared and introduced to Raimon his team, Unlimited Shining. Tsurugi talked to Hakuryuu since he apparently knew him before it. The two teams fought in a field near to the place where they woke up and Raimon was badly beaten and lost 12-0.

He, along with his teammates, was reunited with the coach Endou who came to save them with some of the previous Inazuma Japan members; Kabeyama, Kazemaru, Fubuki and Fudou. Fubuki trained him, along with Hikaru and Nishiki, for the upcoming match. As Raimon faced a match against Ancient Dark in order to get permission to train in the forest, he tried to score a goal with Devil Burst, but it was easily blocked by Ashiya Noboru's Kill Bridge.

During the match against Zero, Tsurugi used his keshin to stop Hakuryuu's keshin, Seijuu Shining Dragon, but failed. He also used his keshin again to stop Hakuryuu's with Shindou's and Tenma's but failed another time because of White Breath. After Tenma's keshin evolved into Majin Pegasus Arc and had beaten Hakuryuu's keshin, he created a chain shoot with Shindou's Harmonics, using Death Drop, then Tenma received the ball and completed the chain with a keshin shoot. It scored the first goal to Raimon, breaking Hebino's Serpent Fang. Later, he used Joker Rains with Shindou after Fudou gives advice to them and scored a goal. At the end of the movie, Tsurugi used Evolution, the combination shoot of Joker Rains and Mach Wind with Shindou and Tenma. Hebino wasn't able to block it with Serpent Fang, but his goal was saved by Hakuryuu and Shuu. At the end of the movie he and Hakuryuu reconciled with a handshake. As he asks him what he would do next, Hakuryuu commented that he would return to play from the basic in order to defeat his biggest rival, Tsurugi.

Tsurugi's 3D models comparison.

  • In Japanese, the word Tsurugi means Sword. However, Tsurugi's surname is spelled with 2 kanji, 剣 (Sword) and 城 (Castle).
    • This can also be found in his last name in the dub, "Blade".
  • He has a habit of putting his hands in his pockets, even when using a certain hissatsu or calling out his Keshin.
    • Another habit of Tsurugi is to not close any jacket with zipper leaving it open in the middle and raising the collar of his uniform.
  • He is the first character in the anime series to have scored an own goal.
  • In the first and second Wii games, he cannot wear any uniform other than Raimon's. He instead wears his casual clothes that he wore at the start of GO.
  • In Inazuma Eleven GO the Movie: The Ultimate Bonds Gryphon, it is shown that he has a rivalry with Hakuryuu since the time they were both training as SEED's on God Eden.
  • In Inazuma Eleven GO Galaxy game, Tsurugi has a slight change in his 3D model, being one of the very few characters whose appearance changes from one game to another.
  • In Inazuma Eleven SD, the Shinsei Raimon version of Tsurugi was featured on the title screen. However the Tenma Arc story which was planned to be released in July-August 2020 was delayed, and eventually the game was shut down in December 2020 before the story was added, this version of Tsurugi was never added to the game.
  • He has character songs titled Onaji Yume wo Miteru with Yuuichi, Te wo Tsunagou with Tenma and Aoi, Sayonara Kako no Ore with Kariya Masaki, Bokutachi no Shiro with Tenma, Shindou, Kirino and Shinsuke and Mikazuki Smile with Endou Mamoru, Shindou and Kirino.
