Black Rock Shooter Wiki

Dead Master (デッドマスター, Deddo Masutā) is the incarnation of the Dead Master character in Black★Rock Shooter OVA. She is the other self of Yomi Takanashi.


Dead Master has green eyes, wavy black semi-long hair brought to the front of her shoulders with straight cut bangs, and a pair of black horns on her head that resemble vertebrae curving inwards. She wears a short black dress with frills at the collar and hem, a white ribbon adorning the left side of her waist, and an open back for her two thin wings. The back of her dress is tied with a black ribbon behind her neck, and has another white ribbon on the back of her waist. She also wears skeletal gloves, black capris and heel shoes.

Her green eyes have a concentric circular pattern in them.


Dead Master is generally shown to be sinister and antagonistic, making a show of her nature with wicked smiles whenever she has the advantage over her opponent. She attacks Black★Rock Shooter when she offers her hand out to her, is amused when she decides to fight Dead Master (indicated when Dead Master sees the flame in her eye), and is undeterred when Black★Rock Shooter destroys her Skulls and her scythe. Even when Dead Master is cornered by Black★Rock Shooter, she attempts to resist her to the very end.



As her human counterpart, Yomi Takanashi, becomes jealous of Mato Kuroi's friendship with Yuu, Yomi turns around and vanishes into a black shadow that resembles Dead Master, departing to the Hollow World with her.


Dead Master herself first appears sitting atop her throne inside of a cathedral, seemingly expecting Black★Rock Shooter's appearance when she arrives. As the two observe each other, Black★Rock Shooter offers her hand out to Dead Master. She does not reciprocate, but instead sends her Skulls to attack her. Black★Rock Shooter is knocked away, and Dead Master only looks upon her as she gets up and ignites the flame in her eye. This amuses Dead Master and they begin their fight in earnest.


As they fight, the cathedral starts to become consequently destroyed. Dead Master uses her scythe to create a shockwave that breaks apart the floor beneath Black★Rock Shooter, and the former follows in after her. She sends her Skulls to attack her, but Black★Rock Shooter transforms the barrel of her ★Rock Cannon into a blade and destroys them for good. Dead Master lands on one of the chains hanging overhead of Black★Rock Shooter, indifferent to the loss of her Skulls, and leads her on a chase further downwards into an atrium-like area of the cathedral. They continue their fight and are equally matched until Dead Master trips Black★Rock Shooter and attempts to attack her while she's down. However, Black★Rock Shooter fires her ★Rock Cannon at point blank range and blows off the blade of Dead Master's scythe from its pole. Dead Master throws away her scythe, but is shown to be indifferent once again and licks her fingers gleefully. She jumps into the air and summons numerous chains that ensnare Black★Rock Shooter, smiling as she is victorious in their fight.


Dead Master's demise.

Afterwards, Dead Master appears smirking before Black★Rock Shooter, who has been chained up against the wall. Looking fixedly at Dead Master again, Black★Rock Shooter gains the strength to break free of her chains with her bare hands. Dead Master backs away and attempts to chain her up again, but Black★Rock Shooter overpowers her chains and comes up to her, seemingly shocking her. Dead Master backs away once more when Black★Rock Shooter offers her hand to her again, but she nearly falls off the ledge behind her. To her surprise, Black★Rock Shooter saves her by embracing her. Dead Master angrily growls as she tries to resist her, but screams as she falls away into a black shadow that dissolves, leaving Yomi behind in Black★Rock Shooter's arms. The cathedral around them begins to collapse with Dead Master gone, and Black★Rock Shooter carries Yomi out to safety, returning her and Mato to their world.
