The dog my son's so smitten with is called Ume. I found him injured in the forest a long time ago.


Ume (「梅太郎」?; Umetarō) is a dog that belonged to Kokari. He lived with Kokari and his father in Agata Forest. He was Kokari's constant companion, always watching him when he fished and accompananying him wherever the boy traveled. Ume is the guise name of Jin (「仁狗」?; Jinkō; "dog of benevolence" or "dog of humaneness"), and was always referred to by his real name by the Eight Canine Warriors and Princess Fuse.


Ume is a pastel red Shiba Inu with white patches on his underside, "fake eye" fur spots, tail tip, paws, complete with several flower-shaped markings on his side. The Justice Orb, which is the same color as his fur, is attached to the orange bandanna he wears around his neck. On the back of the bandanna is a circle with two lines within it, the symbol of the Satomi House that all Canine Warriors bear on their bandanna.

Bestiary entry

"'Jin' stands for 'justice'.
To show compassion to both the living and the dead...
To care enough to give one's own life in service..."



Jin as depicted in the Bestiary.

Ume is not at all a difficult opponent. When the battle starts, Amaterasu can immediately approach him and begin her assault with farming techniques. After the farming procedures are completed, Amaterasu has to focus on attacking Ume while simultaneously defending from the Canine Warrior's offense. When Ume jumps into the air and perform a somersault before landing, his Justice Orb glowing, Amaterasu has to run to a certain distance, wait for Ume to lunge at her, and when he has covered half the distance between his original position and Amaterasu's, execute a Sub-Reflector Counterattack to gain a Demon Fang and defend from the attack. Other attacks of the Canine Warrior includes a series of multiple lunge and bites, a hole-digging attack, and a land mine attack. When sufficient damage is dealt, Ume will be stunned, a chance for Amaterasu to deal further damage.
