Kaioh Dorian (怒李庵 海王, Dorian Kaiō) is a fictional character from anime and manga series of Baki the Grappler. He is one of the five escapees who track down Tokyo's fighters.


He is often calm and relaxed in most times. However, he is very good in deceiving his opponents and playing with them. Even though he is a great Chinese Kenpo fighter, Dorian somehow started to abandon martial arts because of his own ego. Usually during a battle, he counts on his gadgets and dirty tactics to win. One of his most often tricks is sudden start of crying to bewilder his opponent and make him feel pity.

He had never been defeated in his life, and became mentally disabled after losing to Kaioh Retsu. He now has the personality of a small and innocent child who loves candies.


Dorian is an old muscular tall man. He has a long beard. But some time later, he shaved his beard into a thick moustache.



In his youth he was a Private in the United States Army shortly after World War II, and was stationed in Japan where he presumably started learning martial arts. He became a practitioner of Chinese kenpo and learned from the same school, and reached the same rank of Kaioh as Retsu, the first Western man in history to attain that title. Retsu is younger, and obtained the Kaioh rank after Dorian had already left the temple. They shared the same Master, Ryu Kaioh.

Most Evil Death Row Convicts Saga Edit

It is unknown how he became a criminal. He was sentenced to death by hanging. But, he manage to trick the guards and kill them all.


Dorian is a legendary Chinese Kenpo fighter. He once dug a tunnel with his hand and fist as tool in one night. His large body made him immensely strong. He could kick a barrel that Kiyosumi Katou could barely dodge. Besides martial arts he also knows a form of hypnosis to cloud his opponents' senses and allows Dorian to defeat them.

Of all the five convicts, he is most notable for using a wide variety of tools during fights, such as flammable materials and lightweight wire. During a fight with Katou, he covered his hands with grease and then rolled them in broken glass. When Doppo Orochi punched and destroyed his jaw, Dorian used his teeth as a makeshift projectile. He can store many weapons in his stomach, such as grenade or acid bottle. He also has a bomb in his wrist. Dorian is also good in using dirty tricks: he threw his boot to distract Katsumi Orochi and kicked him; he pretended to cry and distracted Kaioh Retsu; during his first fight with Doppo, lowered his guard to cut off his arm.

Dorian has great durability and pain tolerance: he survived after being hanged up for 10 minutes; he was still standing after being burn by Katsumi and after had his ear cut off by Katou; after being defeated by Doppo Orochi, despite of the injuries, he escaped from the hospital and attacked Doppo with a bomb.
