Fools like them so blinded by their conceit that they have erred from their path... it is time for them to taste Ba Nan Ji's Iron Hammer of Wrath.

—Ba Nan Ji to Chou Ga Ryuu.

Ba Nan Ji is a Zhao General of the inner circle of Ri Boku of the Three Great Heavens. He is known under the moniker "Demon of Ganmon" for his vicious battles against Xiongnu in the Ganmon region.


Ba Nan Ji has a long goatee and a thick mustache. He wears a general's armor and a roman-like helmet. He has a scar on the left eye. According to the soldiers of Gyoku Hou Unit, he’s a large man about the same size as General Mou Bu or the Clan Commander of Kan Ki Army, Zenou.


Ba Nan Ji is a passionate man that wants to deliver justice to the ones that threaten his country. He often rushes to action with a smile on his face which indicates that he enjoys warfare against Zhao's enemies and wants to crush them with his "iron hammer of justice". At the same time, on the battlefield he shown to be rational and calculated.

He stated that he hates the Qin King, Ei Sei and his subordinates for their ambition to conquer and unify China. He also mentions that his strength is dependent on the rage he feels and so far against Qin, he wasn't able to get as fired up as against Xiongnu during the opening days of the Battle at Shukai Plains. He is also bit crass and enjoys taunting others, as he says things to embarrass Kaine in front of others.


Ba Nan Ji was born and raised in the north. In the past, he was an officer who served in the Ganmon stronghold on the Zhao/Xiongnu border. On many occasions, Zhao has dispatched celebrated commanders to Ganmon, but all of them died before reaching the end of their first month. Ba Nan Ji, however, was able to serve in this land of death for a significant amount of time.

Ba Nan Ji would at some point in his life get married and have a son named Ba Fuu Ji.

On the next day, however, his army is pincered between A Kou and Gyoku Hou Unit which resulted in the death of many of his soldiers.

Ba Nan Ji loses his right eye

On the night before 9th day Ri Boku meets him in secret to tell him about A Kou Army's weakness. Thanks to this information he is able to break their defense. He duels A Kou to a standstill until Gyou'Un joins and together they defeat Qin general with a hit to his head. However, thanks to A Ka Kin's intervention, he survives. Later, he fights against A Kou Army and is temporarily stalled by A Ka Kin who is using hit and run tactics against him.

On the final day of battle his unit is part of a pincer against Ou Sen's HQ. He sneaks his forces by using the forest as cover and strikes the side of Ou Sen's unit with overwhelming strength. However, he is stopped by Mou Ten, who parries his attack and cuts his eye, allowing Qin's commander in chief to escape.

As a deputy to Ri Boku, Ba Nan Ji is a ferocious fighter with a sharp eye for tactics.[3] Chou Ga Ryuu considered him to be one of the key factors in deciding victory or defeat in Battle at Shukai Plains.[4]

In the past, he was an officer who served in the Ganmon stronghold on the Zhao-Xiongnu border. On many occasions, Zhao has dispatched celebrated commanders to Ganmon, but all of them died before reaching the end of their first month. Ba Nan Ji, however, was able to serve in this land of death for a significant amount of time, demonstrating his capabilities.[5]

Physical Abilities[]

Ba Nan Ji's destructive power in action

Immense Strength: Ba Nan ji's size is comparable to Mou Bu and his strength of arms is assumed to be on a similar level to Kai Shi Bou or Ren Pa.[6][7] In the past, he pulverized numerous Xiongnu leaders with his bare fists, despite their almost superhuman skills.[8] He was able to break through enemy lines and easily overpower Gyoku Hou Unit commander, Kyuu Kou.[9] He later fought on par with Ou Hon without taking a single clean hit from him and even dismounted and disarmed young commander.[10][11]

Ba Nan Ji's strength seems to vary depending on his psychological condition.[12] While already being strong in his base, once he gets fired up, he reaches a completely different level as demonstrated when he surprised even Ou Sen by easily breaking through his guard platoons.[13] Even Mou Ten stated that he would not be able to win one duel out of a hundred against the Demon of Ganmon when he's at full strength.[14]


Ba Nan Ji is a ferocious leader as he leads numerous charges in the frontlines. He is capable to command efficiently in battlefield not only his own men, but also soldiers that do not originate from his army as seen when he took command of Gaku Ei Army remnants.

Tactical Abilities[]

Ba Nan Ji was praised by Chou Ga Ryuu and Ka Ryo Ten for his tactical insight.[15][16] On the first day of battle, he split his forces into two groups, an attack force, and distraction to prevent A Kou's second wave to aid the first wave and deal a devastating blow to his army. After Chou Ga Ryuu's defeat, he also made a plan to make a tactical retreat and strike the rear of Qin's right-wing that would go for Zhao's center.
