Schwarlitz Longhener

Psych! You're dead meat!
~ Schwarlitz Longhener
How dare you penetrate my territory? You have robbed everything I possessed. You knoe (sic), what you've done to me is just unforgivable. I'll punish you myself and see to it that you'll die a miserable death with my awesome weapon. Die, maggots.
~ Schwarlitz Longhener

Colonel Schwarlitz Longhener is the main villain and final boss from DoDonPachi, where he pilots Hibachi. The commander of the DonPachi Corps, Longhener holds total power over the squadron, despite his colonel rank. Longhener has a belief that humanity are a flawed creation, and thus he seeks to eradicate it.



Schwarlitz Longhener created the DonPachi Corps, a squadron of elite soldiers who gone through an arduous training which involved killing their own comrades, who sacrificed themselves in order to allow only the most skilled to pass the test.


The player pilot, a member of the DonPachi Corps, is sent by Longhener to fight an invasion by a mysterious mechanized alien force. Upon defeating this threat, however, the pilot receives a communication from Longhener, who reveals he have been actually fighting against his own comrades, a lost fleet who defected from the DonPachi Corps and was trying to stop the colonel's mad schemes. With them out of the way, Longhener sends his own fleet against the pilot, him having served his purpose. The pilot defeats Longhener's fleet, so Longhener uses his most powerful weapon, Hibachi, against him, but he is ultimately killed. The pilot finally realizes Longhener's true plan, musing on the irony that this entire war actually solved all of mankind's problems of overpopulation, pollution and arms race. The DonPachi Corps was then dissolved, all of their weapons gathered and sealed away in a cave inside the moon (which leads to the events of DoDonPachi Blissful Death/DaiOuJou).


  • His final part of quote, "Die, maggots." (死ぬがよい.) has become a notorious advertisement line for Cave shoot'em up games and Donpachi franchise: Daring players to play and overcome their brutally difficult games.
