|Anime Appearance||Episode 7|
Leader of the Uesugi Clan and ruler of the country of Echigo. He was Shingen's greatest rival before his death and Kenshin greatly respected him. His Giant War Armor, Visra is capable of defeating other Giant War Armors with ease, even those using a regalia, despite apparently having none himself.
He has an androgynous appearance with shoulder length purple hair and hazel eyes. He is always seen wearing a yukata.
He is shown to be an extremely cordial and polite individual even when speaking to his enemies. However, underneath his calm mask lurks a man who greatly enjoys conflict and he secretly does what he can to prevent peace from settling on the Eastern Planet. After being defeated by Alexander he is shown to be desperate to become stronger, going as far as challenging the Dragons of the Stars in order to achieve it.
