|HIro Miyamoto||Eras: All, born in the 2400's|
|Occupation:||Dojo Instructor, Swordsman, Defender of the Daikatana|
Hiro Miyamoto is the main character of Daikatana, he is the only playable character in the single player campaign in the PC and N64 versions of the game, and one of the playable characters in the GBC version.
Hiro is voiced by Paul Slavens. and Carlos Salamanca (Spanish version)
Hiro Miyamoto owns a dojo in 2455, and teaches children martial arts and to swordfight. It appears that he is in a bad financial situation, as his reaction to seeing someone at his door was worrying about paying his rent.
Hiro is a direct descendant of the legendary Usagi Miyamoto, who forged the Daikatana many years ago in the Ebihara and Mishima clan wars in the 16th century. He has been upholding the honor of his family legacy.
Hiro appears well educated, as he is well versed in Japanese history, warfare, martial arts and physics, but also history in general, and mastery of various weapons across time periods.
- Hiro originally had a completely different design in early development, and was intended to be an archaeology student in 2455 rather than a dojo instructor and swordsman. This was, however, in very early development stages in 1996-7.
- John Romero had commisioned a large statue of Hiro Miyamoto wielding the Daikatana for e3, and says he has no clue where it went.
- It is very likely Hiro is a play on words with hero, as Hiro is the protagonist of the games.
