Brocken's casual appearance.

Having a growth disease, Brocken's body is very short and frail, not being much larger than a grown child. After encountering baby Hao, his limbs were burnt off, and he had to used blocks and the rat spirits to create a Lego Minifigure like Oversoul to assist his disability. He was quite short, had spiky light colored hair, he also had rat-like buck teeth and he was also is seen with a white tank top underneath his Oversoul.

When not fighting, he is mostly seen concealing his lego Minifigure body with a red cloak, with a blue scarf, and yellow mittens with a red star on them.


Believing the house he was living in before he had met Hao to almost be like a prison because of his growth disease, Brocken feels grateful for Hao and claims that Hao had saved him. He seems to be very friendly, happily introducing himself to a newly recruited Bill Burton, and claiming that under Hao, they all could live as free as they wanted.[1]

Being incredibly loyal to Hao, he does not take well to betrayal, as he was quite angered and quite mortified at Peyote's actions at the beach.

Abilities and PowersEdit

Brocken has a high Furyoku level that, according to Peyote Diaz, is because he is living in a constant near-death situation quite similar to Iron Maiden Jeanne.

Originating from Copenhagen, Denmark and born on August 30, 1959, with a growth disease, because of that he described the house he was in was almost like a prison cell.[1] At the age of 26 in the year of 1985, he was found by Asakura Hao[2], and had his limbs were burned off. Because of this he almost died, and his Shamanic powers were able to reawaken, by using hao blocks and the rat spirits to function properly without his limbs by creating an Oversoul.[1] He later joined up with hao, and later became the adoptive father of Hao, raising him from infancy after Hao escaped the Asakura family household when he was reincarnated again.


Brocken, five years before the Shaman fight

five Years before the Shaman Fight, When Bill Burton was introduced into the group, he freaks out when he sees Brocken, thinking he is a talking toy. Brocken introduces himself and shows Bill his true appearance and explains the reason for his odd appearance. He praises Hao, saying that if it weren't for being in a near-death state he wouldn't have had awakened his shamanic powers. Bill explains that if he hadn't met him he would have had a normal life, but Brocken believes that because of his growth disease, Hao had rescued him from that life, saying that together with Hao they were as free as they wanted to be. When the Boz Brothers started to pick a fight with Bill, Brocken explains to them about Bill's spirits and that they would not want mess with him. [1]

Shaman Fights Second RoundEdit

He was a good friend of "Big Guy" Bill Burton as he is always seen sitting on his shoulder. aswell His teammates were eliminated before the second round. so he usually hangs out with Bill Burton and his team. He then made his first official appearance when Usui Horokeu was protecting Team Icemen that Bill Burton had seen out as food for the Spirit of Fire.

however, When Bill was defeated with a single blow from Usui Lycan, Brocken was left alone to fight Horohoro on his own. Due to his opponent's oversoul switching strategy, Brocken was easily defeated when he was covered in a massive amount of ice, enough to cover his oversoul, "Die Tank". he was later Found by Mohamed, Hang Zang-Ching and Peyote Diaz, he was scolded for losing and told that Furyoku is not everything.

Brocken was the only sole survivor of the disaster on the beach when Peyote tried to kill all Hao's followers present. He was later rescued by the Asakura Family and his condition stabilized. He was kept captive in hopes of getting information out of him.

Anime/Manga DifferenceEdit

Brokkeannv v v

Brocken in the anime.

In the anime series, like most of Hao's other followers, Brocken's role is far less important, including no mention of being his first follower and being Hao's adoptive father. His appearance is also slightly kinda different. he is portrayed wearing a yellow cloak instead of a red one, and his Lego Minifigure body is colored red, yellow, and blue instead of solely yellow.

He has no speaking role in the anime, only making odd series of electronic noises in response to Hang Zang-Ching, on one occasion. During the battle at Babylon gate, he clashes with Cebin Mendel. He later arrives in the final battle, much later than his other comrades, and subsequently fights with Horohoro before eventually being defeated alongside Luchist, Turbine, and Zang-Ching by Ren.


  • His block form is heavily similar to a real-life popular line of construction toys, Lego minifigures. When he first met Bill Burton, he was shocked by his appearance, referring to him as a talking toy.
