|First Appearance:||Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2|
Colonel (カーネル or 大佐, Taisa) is an antagonist of the Fist of the North Star series, and makes an appearance in the Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage series. He is a former Red Beret who used to loyally serve his country. Once he discovered his superiors were corrupt bureaucrats, however, Colonel refused to be a puppet to people he couldn't respect. After his former superiors caused the very war that ravaged the world, Colonel was convinced that he and his surviving men were the "chosen ones". Embracing the land's age of savagery in depraved grandeur, he leads his organized group called GOLAN, believing he is creating a land "fit for the gods". For these ends, his measures go as far as crudely recruiting young men into his forces and kidnapping women to forcibly bear their children. He prides himself as the strongest murderer of the new era.
Rin is captured with other women on one of GOLAN's trucks and is rescued by a wandering Kenshiro. Learning of the group's cruelty from their victims, he seeks to avenge them by facing Colonel directly. During their showdown, Colonel smugly brags about his strength and attacks Kenshiro with his greatest technique. After a brief struggle, Hokuto Shinken proves superior. Kenshiro retaliates by pressing a single pressure point on Colonel's forehead, which ruthlessly breaks every bone in his body as his skeleton rips out of his flesh, killing him.
- "You will never be able to touch me."
- "I see... You practice the legendary assassin's art known as Hokuto Shinken."
- "We've been chosen by the gods themselves! What's so wrong about that?!"
- "I'll show you just how terrifying we Red Berets can be!"
- "That's it! Eliminate the weak so that only the strongest of us may survive!"
- "I don't believe it! With strength like yours, anything is possible..."
- "Hmm... With strength like that, anything is possible..."
- "Waahhh! Stay away! Stay away from me!"
Nanto Muonken (South Star Silent Fist) is one of the 108 styles found within the Nanto Seiken school. According to the Colonel, it is the world's deadliest assassination technique. He can expertly predict his opponent's movements as though he were moving at the speed of light and gives the impression that he has the power of clairvoyance. After he sidesteps his opponent's attacks, he uses his iron nails or steel boomerangs to attack his enemy's blind spots. The process appears as though he is using telepathy to manipulate his foe into his attacks.
