Kin'emon is a samurai from the Wano Country and the leader of the Nine Red Scabbards, a group of powerful warriors at the disposal of Kozuki Oden. During the invasion that Kaido did in Wano, Kin'emon and a group of other samurais were sent into the future by the powers of Kozuki Toki's Devil Fruit.
He met the Strawhat Pirates in Punk Hazard where he was found split in three parts by Trafalgar Law's powers. He found allies there to perform a counter-attack against Kaido and the current Shogun of Wano, Kurozumi Orochi.

Weaknesses: Standard Devil Fruit users weaknesses. The clothes he creates disappear once they are removed.
- Haki: Kin'emon is a skilled user of Haki.
- Observation Haki: His proficiency with this type of Haki is quite notable. Back in Punk Hazard, when he was splitted in three parts, he attacked Luffy just with his legs, on top of noticing the presence of the Strawhats.
- Armament Haki: Kin'emon is able to display the advanced version of this Haki, as seen when he imbues his katanas with it to stop the Birdcage in Dressrosa.
- Foxfire Style: This is a swordsmanship style used exclusively by Kin'emon. The Kitsunebi-ryu allows the user to generate, attack with, and cut with fire. It can also be used to cut the fire created by an explosion to protect the user from harm. How the fire is produced is currently unknown. Kitsunebi-ryu is not derived from a Devil Fruit, as Kin'emon possesses a Devil Fruit of an unrelated power.
- Flame Split: Kin'emon slashes the sword and splits an incoming fire attack.
- Firework Flash: Kin'emon attacks with a powerful flaming slash.
