Warden Uighur is one of the main antagonist of main villains of the arc by Cassandra's Prison, many villains that Kenshiro faces in his journey in the Fist of the North Star. Uighur is the head of the Cassandra city-like prison under direct order of Raoh. He is one of Raoh's most deadly henchmen.


Uighur is the sadistic warden of the prison-city Cassandra, the final destination for the warlord Raoh's surviving enemies. In Cassandra, to Uighur's pleasure, the inmates are very brutally tortured. He prevents any and all prisoners trying to escape Cassandra by gruesomely killing them, as well as anyone from outside who tries to break them out. Uighur's gate guards, Raiga and Fuuga, are kept in line by the threat that if they disobey him, their younger brother will be pecked to death by Uighur's pet eagle. He tries to avoid killing anyone willing to die, because that spoils half the fun, instead preferring to bring fear into his victims' minds before brutally murdering them.



1986 movie

In this continuity, Uighur is the second-in-command of Raoh's army. Uighur is first seen with Raoh as they invade Kiba Daioh's territory. Kiba daioh manages to beat back Uighur's troops and challenges Raoh to combat, outraged at this disrespect towards his lord, Uighur gets ready to attack Kiba himself, but gets pulled back by Raoh, who kills Kiba Daioh himself. Uighur praises Raoh's might and relays orders to leave no survivors.

Near the end of the film, Uighur is acting as a public executioner for Yuria's acts of defiance towards Raoh. In the final battle, Uighur faces Rei in combat and is killed.

Powers and Abilities


Uighur cuts a martial artists to ribbons with his whips

Uighur is an immense man whose gigantic figure strikes fear into people. Weighing an immense 770 pounds, Uighur towers over the 6 feet tall Kenshiro and had to be folded in half to fit into a grave for Kenshiro. As one would expect for a giant, Uighur has incredible raw power, however Uighur is also incredibly swift and skillful for his size, able to use his whips faster then the eye can see.

Uyghur fights using the Taizan-ryū Sōjō Ben (泰山流双条鞭, Taizan-ryū Sōjō Ben "Taishan Style Twin Streak Whip") style, however his true power lay in his shoulder tackle called Mōko Hakyoku Dō (蒙古覇極道, Mōko Hakyoku Dō "Tao of the Mongolian Champion") which concentrates all his muscle and strength into one of his shoulders. Kenshiro was seriously injured when struck by this technique, however in the rematch Ken managed to literally stop and crush his shoulder before defeating Uighur with the Hokuto Hyakuretsuken.
