Kin and his siblings was born in the spring of Futago Pass, shortly after the fall of Shōgun. As a puppy, Kin is just as mischievous as his siblings and is prone to biting. He remains in the care of his mother for most of his appearance.

Kin as a puppy

After a volcano erupts in Ou, forcing the dogs to flee, Kin and his family are locked in a mine by Kurohabaki Jinemon until being later released by Daisuke.

Ginga: The Last Wars

A few months have passed since the defeat of Kurohabaki Masamune and Kin is grown up, but still lacking in fighting experience. When Monsoon attacks Ou, Kin encourages his father to fight but is escorted away with Reika and his siblings under Gin's orders.

Reika tells the children with her to rest for the night, when she notices a dog coming up the hill towards them. She recognizes him as Nyūdōunsai Sanada and tells him what has happened in Ou.


  • Together with his brother Tama's name, it's a joke of the japanese word kintama (jap; 金玉), meaning testicles, or golden balls as a literal translation
  • As a puppy, he had fluffier floppy ears like his father, but when he became older his ears changed to be smoother and more folded-looking like Jirō's ears.
  • He is called Kinta (jap. キンタ) in Ginga: The Last Wars, which might be his real name or an error.
