Mini-Bio By defeating Tachibana Kippei within 00:14:02, Devil Kirihara clocked the shortest match at this year's Kantou Tournament. A truly terrifying player, Kirihara has a tendency of deliberately injuring his opponents during his matches by utilizing his monstrous power and speed that result from his eyes becoming bloodshot. Although the congestion has a time limit, it usually accomplishes his objective. When he first entered Rikkai, the ambitious Kirihara aimed to become the No. 1 player at school, but his aspiration was crushed by the three demons. This year, Kirihara's road to redemption crashed into the towering wall of Seigaku, with consecutive losses to Echizen Ryoma and Fuji Shuusuke. Kirihara turned his disappointing year around during the last two rounds of the Nationals by netting crucial victories.
Technique Split Step - A step that increases speed and allows Kirihara to change direction easily.
Bloodshot Mode - When Kirihara's eyes become bloodshot, his power and speed also increase.
Knuckle Serve - A serve that bounces toward the receiver's body.
Muga no Kyouchi - Kirihara achieved this state during his match against Fuji.
Devil Mode - An upgrade of the Bloodshot Mode.
Short Snake - A Snake that is hit near the net.
