Kamakiri is a muscular, dark-skinned man with a Mohawk hairstyle and a pair of big, round sunglasses with red lenses and white frame. He also has two big and colored earrings hanging from his ears. On his back he has a pair of classical Shandia wings associated with their species. Kamakiri wears a grass skirt, similar to the ones worn by his companions, but with a red and green elaborate belt around the waist. He also sports a light red fur vest and a necklace that seems to be made of some animal's claws or teeth.
After the timeskip he has only added his guard's coat to his attire having it hanging from his shoulders.
Abilities and PowersEdit
Kamakiri is one of the strongest Shandia warriors, most likely the strongest under Wiper himself. His combat skills were praised by Enel himself, who offered only to Kamakiri a chance of killing him. The God's electricity-made body however prevented the Shandia from killing him, and Enel easily defeated him.
He uses a spear and a Burn Blade as weapons, and can fly proficiently on a Jet Board. Kamakiri also displayed incredible resistance, as he was able to continue fighting after receiving an injury from Ohm, and survived Enel's destructive attack.
Being one of the Shandia, he was born in the sight of war. He together with with his Shandia friends was told about the story of Calgara.
Enel's Survival GameEdit
He was first seen noticing Aisa going to Upper Yard again to get Vearth.
After the meeting, together with the warriors, they started moving to the God's Shrine. His group together with Kamakiri confronted Gedatsu, one of Enel's priest. Kamakiri had been wounded causing them to retreat. All of the Shandia Warriors had been asked by Wiper if they were ready to step over their fallen comrades, and only those who answered yes would be the ones who must come with Wiper.
As they proceed to the forest, all of them except Wiper were stuck of Ordeal of String by Shura. Wiper suddenly appeared out of nowhere then attacked Shura by using a Reject Dial. Braham states that they must split up because the island is enemy's territory, they can not stay in a group or they will be captured again. After the conversation they started to move.
As he moved with one ally Shandia, Enel showed up and struck the Shandia. Enel then ordered Kamakiri to hit him, giving him five minutes to do so, while sitting in one place, not moving. He stabbed Enel in his head with his spear, but he was unable to injure Enel due to his fruit power and was struck by Enel's thunder. Kamakiri quickly used his burning sword but it just continued through the tree. He was hit by Enel's attack 1,000,000 Volt: Shock Release. He regained consciousness when Laki passed by and ordered her to tell Wiper that there's no way to defeat Enel before losing consciousness again.
End of 400 Year WarEdit
As the war ends, he was seen celebrating with the Skypieans. After that, he and his people returned to their native homeland, Upper Yard. There, they settled with the rest of the Skypieans, sharing the land with one another. Kamakiri was last seen with his companions, striving to restore the forest.
