He who hopes give himself the opportunity to obtain what he desires. But he who fears, always ends up with the very thing he dreads.

—Tomoe Tsurugi Backwarder"

Tomoe Tsurugi[1] is a world champion in fencing and the mother of Kagami Tsurugi.

In "Ikari Gozen", after Kagami disobeys her by choosing to participate in the Friendship Day games against her will, Tomoe is akumatized into Ikari Gozen, a centaur samurai themed villain in order to punish her daughter.[2]


Physical appearance

Tomoe is a pale-skinned slender Japanese woman of average height with long dark blue hair that is arranged in Chignon style, which is held with a red clip.

Civilian attire

Tomoe wears a white shirt, long red pants, black sunglasses and she uses a bokken as a support cane for her blindness.

As Ikari Gozen

As Ikari Gozen, Tomoe has an appearance reminiscent of a classical Greek centaur as her lower body resembles a horse, complete with hooves and four legs. As a living suit of hollow samurai armor, her skin is the same metallic red as the rest of her body with pupiless yellow eyes, partially covered with a helmet reminiscent of the one that Riposte bears, albeit with a large horn instead of a winged emblem and bearing the Tsurugi family crest on her chest. Because the Tsurugi's car was transformed along with Tomoe in the akumatization, she appears to be very mechanical and vehicular, especially in the lower half of her body. It's appearance evokes a high end car, with tires at the joints, headlights at the front where it exhaust ports throughout and Ikari Gozen wields her akumatized bokken in her right hand.


Tomoe seems to be a very strict and kept person who is very aware of her environment. She can be wise and informative towards others as well, advising Gabriel Agreste to not give into fear in "Backwarder".

When she mentions Gabriel Agreste being more blind than she is, Tomoe has a more opened mind and she doesn't always believe in friendship as she believes forging bonds with another can end sour or disappointing, but she was willing to change her ways in letting Kagami Tsurugi make a new friend. As Ikari Gozen, Tomoe becomes much more aggressive and violent as she regularly performs large sword strokes without care for collateral damage and knocking aside several cars. Her aggression is so that she shows no hesitation to anything, even combating her own daughter, as she attempts to stomp her several times under her hooves. She believes she is well within her rights as a mother to act out and punish her daughter as she deems fit for disobeying her. She is also rather confident and prideful, declaring herself "as swift as the wind, as powerful as the flood, as quick as lightning."


As a civilian

Tomoe is a very skilled champion in fencing that she is able to sense the mood of those near her even though she is blind.

As Ikari Gozen

As Ikari Gozen, Tomoe has an incredible size as she rivals even some of the largest villains like Glaciator or Gigantitan. With this strength, she is able to knock aside large heavy objects like cars with ease and create large heavy stomps with her hooves, all while still being rather nimble and dexterous, able to gallop, leap large distances and wield her sword with one hand. On her akumatized form, it would also appear that she is able to see well.

Using her strength and size, Ikari Gozen is able to easily able to grab ordinarily sized people like Kagami Tsurugi and Cat Noir in order to swallow them and trap them inside her body. The cage inside her body still heavily resembles the car it was made from, complete with seats and seat belts that she can freely manipulate, as shown when she was able to restrict Cat Noir's hand when he was about to use Cataclysm.
