Kurokono Tasuke (黒子野 太助) is an Old Jouishishi and one of the comrades of Sakata Gintoki, Katsura Kotarou, Sakamoto Tatsuma and Takasugi Shinsuke during the Joui Wars.


Kurokono and the Joui 4 fought countless of battles in the Joui wars. However, he has never been seen in the history because of his faint presence. He was thought to be dead since he was 'blown up' inside an exploding building in a game of 'kick the can', but he was actually alive.


Apparently has an average height as Gintoki, has short black hair and regarding dress are dark colors and above its war clothes carrying a dark green coat, his suit is very similar to that of Katsura. He also resembles a lot to Tetsuya Kuroko, the character of the parodied manga series.


He seems to be fairly polite. As seen when he addressed Gintoki, Katsura and Sakamoto with the honorific -san. He has a faint presence. He could only help everyone in trivial ways from the background, seeing that he was always medicore and in the background. Despite that, he continues to protect his friends, saying that it is 'a shadows pride'.

Strength & AbilitesEdit

Currently, nothing is known about his strength. The fact that he was quite close to the Joui four implies that he might have had something better than the other soldiers. When he arrived to rescue Katsura and Sakamoto, Kurokono was able to single-handedly knock out the Kiheitai under Matako's command and hold a sword to her neck, taking them all by surprise and without them being able to retaliate.
