|Japanese name:||曹操 / 孟徳|
In the anime, he is less sinister a character, and instead seems more like a disturbed and troubled man trying to fight his dragon. He is much calmer and more caring until his dragon awoke. When Kanu was captured and taken prisoner, Sousou broke her out and persuaded her to join him. Kanu proved herself by fighting Hakufu one-on-one. Sousou was watching the fight on top of a nearby building and when Hakufu spotted him, she charged at him using the power of her dragon. Sousou countered with his own dragon and blew Hakufu a great distance away. While in his dragon state he almost killed his best friend, Kakouton. He was chained to a wall while being watched over by Chukou to prevent him from killing anyone else. In the Battle of Red Cliffs, he merged with Shibai's evil powers and he attempts to kill Ryubi. He was defeated, and presumably killed, by Hakufu and Ryubi. In an episode of Great Guardians, Sousou is revealed to be alive, appearing out of nowhere behind Kakouen. After seeing him, Kakouen breaks into tears and Sousou comforts her, perhaps showing that he really does treasure Kakouen.
