|Usagi Miyamoto||Eras: 16th Century - appears later as a ghost|
Usagi Miyamoto is the man who forged the Daikatana, and a member of the Miyamoto clan. He is ancestor to Hiro Miyamoto, and son of Inshiro Miyamoto.
Usagi forged the Daikatana under request of the Mishima clan, but once being aware of it's power, cast it into a volcano, where it lied dormant until being found by Kage Mishima much later.
As Hiro goes on a quest to recover the Daikatana, Usagi's spirit accompanies him throughout time, and even helps him, such as blowing up a power box in the Sewer System.
At the end of Daikatana, Usagi's spirit enters Hiro Miyamoto's body - allowing him to defeat Kage Mishima. He gains complete control over the Daikatana, and the ability to time travel to a particular location and time.
His origin story is explored in the Daikatana comic.
