His right pupil is a red circle with a black dot in the middle, and his iris is also black; while his left eye has a red iris and a white pupil in the shape of a cross, reminiscent of the tic-tac-toe game or the Japanese symbols of affirmation and negation. He normally wears a dark facial expression. Benimaru's outfit consists of a white t-shirt with a black vest on it, a gray kimono top garment (dark blue in the anime) that he wears only on his left arm and the Special Fire Force.uniform pants that he slips into his black boots. Previously, he wore black fingerless gloves and a black sweater wrapped around his waist.
When not on a mission, Benimaru wears a black t-shirt under a black samurai-style hakama, with a white strap around his waist as a belt and black boots. Benimaru is later seen wearing a black shirt under a grey kimono top garment (dark blue in the anime) with special firemen's uniform pants and black boots.
Benimaru is short-tempered, prefers to work alone or only with his brigade, and can be somewhat disrespectful to many of his seniors. Despite this, he has great confidence in himself and his brigade. He does not care about any part of Tokyo other than Asakusa, regardless of the rules the emperor creates and proudly acts according to his own agenda with his brigade. He is an honest man, although sometimes honest to the point of being rude to others. Although Benimaru destroys buildings and houses in Asakusa in front of an Infernal, he is considered a hero and benevolent by the citizens. He seems to care about Asakusa and the people who reside there and is upset about having to end the life of someone he knew and becoming extremely angry when misinformed. as shown by the cause of Kantarō's death angering him to the point of fighting the entire 8th brigade.
Generally, he is very calm and nonchalant, even when purifying the Infernals, but when he is angry, he fights recklessly. He also has a hot-blooded side that takes pride in his skills and longs for his opponents to give him a fight worth his time. Benimaru is a quirky country idealist who prefers to call himself Shinmon Benimaru and call others by their last names before their first names. At the beginning of the Asakusa attack, Benimaru was hesitant and unsure about acting as a leader and taking control of the citizens, and preferred to let Konro do the job, but after the encouragement of his brigade, he finally took on the issue. Despite his nonchalant attitude, Benimaru is quite passionate about the value of free will and despises the dogmatic faith of the Holy Sol, which preaches a blind faith on human effort and despises the oppressive nature of the gods.
BackgroundBenimaru was an orphan before being adopted by Hibachi Shinmon who needed an heir. Hibachi taught him everything about the Iai Shutō fighting style and all its forms and was a strict master. Constantly deprecating Benimaru for being a fool for his inability to use Sun Wheel properly due to his self-doubt and punishing him every time he engaged in unnecessary combat. Benimaru needed Konro Sagamiya to communicate his master's good intentions through the man's brutal attitude. Even as a boy, Benimaru was a member of the fire department and helped to put the infernals to rest.
Benimaru is considered the strongest officer of the Special Fire Force, and is known as "the king of destruction of Asakusa" because of the devastating power he can unleash. He was able to completely overwhelm the combined power of Maki Oze, Shinra Kusakabe, Tamaki Kotatsu, Arthur Boyle and Takehisa Hinawa. His most impressive feat to date is to effortlessly defeat his doppelganger - who was about to destroy the planet - with a single touch. He is also a very skilled teacher, repeatedly training Shinra and Arthur to become stronger in relatively short periods of time, even helping them unlock access to Hysterical Strength, something he had already accessed himself. According to Konro, Benimaru surpassed their former master, Hibachi Shinmon, who was also a famous and powerful pyrokineticist.
Master Hand-to-hand fighter: Benimaru is an extremely skilled and powerful hand-to-hand fighter, as evidenced by the fact that he easily outwitted and defeated Maki Oze, another advanced hand-to-hand fighter. He is also a master practitioner of iaido martial arts.
Tremendous speed: Benimaru is extremely fast and has extraordinary reflexes. He is able to move faster than the eye can see and outpace even the fastest opponents, such as his own master's doppelganger. He is also able to outrun Shinra's fast technique and counterattack instantly, allowing Shinra to move at hypersonic speeds.
Immense Strength: Benimaru possesses enormous levels of physical strength. As a child, he could match the strength of his master Hibachi and was able to hold a full-grown man with his bare hands. After permanently unlocking Hysterical Strength, Benimaru's strength allowed him to completely overpower Shinra and Arthur simultaneously and continue to take them down for several hours. Benimaru's natural physical strength combined with his innate martial arts mastery makes him an incredibly powerful opponent to face up close, which is further amplified by his pyrokinetic fighting style.
Immense Durability: Benimaru possesses incredible levels of durability, able to completely nullify the strikes of infernal demons, Doppelgängers, and even incredibly powerful individuals such as Dragon and Charon.
Poison Resistance: Benimaru is remarkably resilient, having somehow survived and repelled a dose of poison that would normally kill large animals instantly.
Benimaru has the rare trait of being a second and third generation pyrokinetic, allowing him to voluntarily ignite his own flames and also control flames from external sources. The power and size of his flames are enormous, as is his extremely precise and fluid control of said flames. He was able to completely annihilate his doppelganger, who managed to create a Nichirin around the entire planet with the ability to destroy him, stating that he is in fact stronger than his doppelganger. Due to his second and third generation abilities, Benimaru is an expert in all types of combat, as his abilities allow him to create destructive long-range projectiles, redirect external heat sources and gunfire, amplify his martial arts, and cancel and redirect almost all pyrokinetic attacks. This, combined with his incredible skills, makes Benimaru one of the most powerful characters in Fire Force, if not the most powerful.
Because of his extraordinary prowess in his second and third generation abilities, Konro compares Benimaru to the god "Kagutsuchi". With his advanced sun wheel behind him, Benimaru is said to be like "Acala" himself. He also has a talent for reproducing the techniques and flame abilities of others immediately after contact. He can use his brigade's matoi as a pole to fly to long distance areas, and can control other flaming targets to direct them to great distances. He can control the direction and speed of bullets in the same way asakehisa Hinawa, and create a four meter barrier around him that does not allow heat to pass through. He is also able to trigger an extremely powerful explosion that looks like a crimson moon. He can also create a sharp blade of flame with his hand, a technique derived from his unique fighting style.
During his fight with his master's doppelganger, after being criticized and reminded of his failures by the demon, he fully embraced his status as the ruler of both the sun and the moon, and created a new technique: Crimson Moon's Sun Wheel, allowing him to kill Hibachi Shinmon (doppelganger).

Now calm, Shinmon is now able to listen to eyewitness claims that neither Obi nor Hinawa could have been the men he saw and that something might be going on in the city and he follows Konro's example by remaining calm.
Walking through the streets, Benimaru encounters an unusual number of fights and realizes that there are dozens of mistaken identities. The citizens of Asakusa continue to quarrel, and although Benimaru tries to intervene to stop them, they do not listen. Soon after, he is alerted to multiple fires and infernal sightings. He rushes to find Konro to take control of the situation by flying over the city with his matoi.
