Myojin Yahiko

Japanese name: 明神 弥彦
A hotheaded child, Yahiko is arrogant, cheeky, bad-mannered and a user of profanity; he has already bestowed upon himself the title "Tokyo Samurai", as his father was a samurai who died during the Battle of Ueno in the Boshin War, slain at the Keneiji Temple. Because Yahiko respected his parents, he becomes a thief before the start of the series, to pay back their debt. After meeting Kenshin, Yahiko quits working as a thief and begins living with Kaoru and Kenshin, whom he admires. Yahiko's dream is to be as strong as Kenshin so he will be able to protect himself and the people he loves. Despite his young age and his short time of training, as the series continues Kenshin allows Yahiko to fight with him, noting that he is too mature for his age.

As the years go by, Yahiko learns the principles of Kamiya Kasshin-ryū, which matches Kenshin's ideal of saving lives. By the end of the series, Yahiko also admires Sagara Sanosuke and copies his style of adding a tattoo with the Japanese kanji for "evil" to the back of his clothes. Though he often overestimates himself, Yahiko is able to defeat several enemies. In time Yahiko becomes a master swordsman; he grows into a level-headed, contemplative, and caring young man. He has a rival, Tsukayama Yutarō, who is a rich boy tricked into believing his sensei, Isurugi Raijūta, cared about him. And he has a romantic relationship with Sanjō Tsubame, who works at Akabeko (a restaurant where Yahiko also works) as a waitress
