King of the Night, or Yoruno, is the primary antagonist during the first arc of KoreZombie. A long time ago, he was resurrected by Eucliwood Hellscythe as a zombie, which he was grateful for, and they got along well together with the 5 other members of their group, Seventh Abyss. Over the course of centuries however, his immortality bored him and, bereft of dreams and hopes, wanted to die, but couldn't due to being a zombie, and the only way was for Eucliwood to kill him with her powers. He then killed the leader of his own group to provoke Eucliwood into killing him. Instead, she told him to disappear with her powers. However, Eucliwood's order didn't translate to death, and Yoruno reappears in front of her centuries later, soon after the start of the series. Despite his past actions, Eucliwood refuses to kill him, not wanting to cause pain and suffering to anyone. He mind controls Kyoko and creates fake Megalo to create chaos on Earth and harm those close to Eucliwood so she will become angry enough to want to kill him.

Weaknesses: Weak to light and fire. His regeneration speed is drastically reduced during the day
- Mist Manipulation: Yoruno's unique ability is to create black mist around him that serves primarily for teleportation. Anything surrounded by the mist, be it objects or creatures, will be teleported wherever Yoruno desires within a radius of several dozens of meters. The larger the target is, the longer it takes for the teleportation to happen, from instantaneous for small objects to a maximum of 5 seconds to teleport himself. The mist can also be used as a way to defend against attacks, teleporting weapons and projectiles away. A peculiarity of this ability is that he can temporarily teleport his limbs to strike from his opponent's blind spots and then "reattach" them back, or temporarily teleport an enemy's incoming limbs to hit the air, themselves or an ally; this method of temporary teleportation of limbs can be spammed into a flurry of attacks around an enemy. When he teleports limbs away, they aren't cut off: it's more akin to having them go through gates.
- Immortality/Passive Regeneration: Whenever Yoruno's body is hurt, or limbs are detached or cut off, it will automatically start the process of healing itself and/or reconnecting the body parts together, with Yoruno being able to still move. The effectiveness and speed of the regeneration is increased at night, decreased during the day, and nigh-stopped when near harsh light or fire. Separated parts will be attracted to one other like magnets, and flesh will repair itself
- Time Bombs: Yoruno has access to a couple plushie-shaped time bombs that are highly adhesive. It's impossible for someone to remove the time bomb from themselves; while it can detached by someone else (the combined efforts of Ayumu Aikawa and Haruna barely succeeded in detaching one from Maelstrom), it will then attach itself to whoever pulled it off.
