The Ruffian (荒くれ者, lit."Rough Guy") is a recurring character who appears exclusively in the anime of the Konosuba series. He is a yet-unnamed, burly man who frequents the Adventurer Guild of beginner-town Axel.


The Ruffian is a very tall, well-built man. He has a rough-looking face and sports a tall mohawk hairstyle, along with a mustache and beard. His attire consists of green pants with no shirt, white bracers, rose colored suspenders, a set of shoulder armor and metal-plated shoes.


His appearance initially merits a surly attitude, but he soon is shown otherwise as being enthusiastic and supportive towards fellow patrons of the Adventurer Guild and residents of Axel.

History Edit

In the anime, he is the first person that Satou Kazuma and his companion Aqua speak to, after their arrival into the parallel world and entrance into the guild hall. He sits near the entrance with a drink, and rudely questions the duo about their strange clothes. Kazuma explains his intention to adventure out and fight the Demon King and his army, and so the ruffian welcomes them and directs them to Luna, the guild's clerk.


  • He only appears in the anime.
  • His catchphrase, the initial welcome to Kazuma in the first episode, approximately translates to "Welcome to Hell's gate!"
    • In Episode 9, he once again greets Kazuma in this manner, this time as a fellow patron of the succubi dream shop from Volume 2. Here, his request-paper has his occupation field filled as "artisan weaver", which astounds Kazuma.
