In spirit of the Nazi thread of similar name: http://www.atomicthinktank.com/viewtopic.php?t=19803

I'd love to have some great names for villains of Japanese style and character...

anyone?

Some obvious ones, first:

Rising Sun -- Heat and light powers
Kamakazi -- Like Marvel's 'Nitro': he explodes and does massive damage to everything around him, and appears to die himself but he Gets Better.
Tsunami -- Water powers
Mount Fuji -- Earth-based powers, density, immovable, etc.
The Iron Shogun -- Power-armored mastermind, brilliant military strategist

Black Fox -- Ninja training, also has luck-based or mystical powers ala fox spirits, could be a 'Catwoman'-like 'villain you love to hate'.

Kanji -- uses ink and paper to sketch out a japanese character, which then comes to life; the kanji for 'sword' becomes a whirling barrier of blades, 'fire' becomes a fire elemental minion, etc. He can actually use any substance or surface to effect his magic.

Sentai -- duplicates into five people, each with a specific combat or infiltration specialty.

Nekakami = Black Cat

Sanzoku...I have no idea if it means anything...it just sounds Japanese.

Anything involving Japanese blades...Katana, Wakazashi, Tanto

Zen, Bushido, Takagi...all good Japanese things to have in a name...except Hentai...don't ever use that one...otherwise people will wonder why your character is named for Japan-imation porn.
