So, in light of all this, what do you think his nickname would be? The Mobster Hero? The Godfather Hero? The Wow-How-Expensive-Were-All-Those-Rings Hero? No, he's the Chivalrous Hero. At least he's into community service…?
It should be noted that the word for chivalry used in his nickname, 任侠 (ninkyō), isn't the one referring to the Western concept of the chivalric code (that would be 騎士道/kishidō), but one that originally denoted a Chinese concept of devoting oneself to standing up for the weak, but is nowadays most strongly associated with the yakuza - actual yakuza organizations prefer to call themselves 任侠団体 (ninkyō dantai), or "chivalrous organizations".

Click-bait on the thumbnail. Kenji Tsuragamae is shown but not mentioned in the article itself.

I want to see more of Captain Selkie personally. He's so manly.

Well, he's a policeman, not a pro hero, after all...
