|Voice actor||Takehito Koyasu (Japanese)|
Anthony Bowling (English)
Ukyo is the adopted heir to Ayamaro. His shielded and pampered lifestyle leaves him with a self-centered yet playful attitude on life, which is really a cover for a rather calculating, manipulative and cruel personality. He is later revealed to be the 49th clone of the Emperor and after surviving a three-day ordeal of constant questioning, Ukyo is proclaimed heir to the throne. He then murders the emperor to succeed him and launches a plan to pit the villagers, samurai and bandits against one another to consolidate his control. His plan ultimately fails because of the Samurai and he dies falling down a cliff together with the capital, near Kanna bridge.
