It’s a nameless character and sekiro simply means one armed wolf.Sekiro is just his nickname what is stated my myazaki
- Fri Apr 17, 2020 3:21 pm #16203221
this is incorrect. Wolf is more of a nickname than Sekiro, which is a proper name given to him by the Tengu. He is nameless until his first encounter with Isshin.

sekiro is not his name, it just a nickname isshin gave him same as "wolf" which is his shinobi name
- Sun Mar 24, 2019 9:28 pm #16103421
Except for Isshin Ashina and Tengu, who gave him said name. It's more recognizable than 'Wolf' and less of a mouthful than 'Nameless Ninja', so it should remain as the title of this article for now, imo.

Some characters refer to him as Sekiro (One armed Wolf). Most, however, just call him wolf (including the game itself)

No one knows his true real name anyways. Both Sekiro and Wolf/Okami are how everyone decided to call him because he never spoke his name.
- Fri Apr 12, 2019 5:50 am #16112434
We don't know the name his actual father&mother gave him at birth so to speak.

Sekiro IS technically his name. "Wolf", or as the characters in-world pronounce it, "Ookami" (with a long O, not just one, which would refer to descendants of a god or dragon) is more of a title than an actual name. Owl is NOT Owl's name, his name is Ukonzaemon Usui. Wolf was never given a proper or true name, the Tengu (Isshin) was the very first person to give him a proper name, just the same as he did for the Sculptor, who he labeled as "Sekijou". Sekiro is his only PROPER name, "Wolf" is more of a placeholder than anything else. So yes, Sekiro is his name.

If the wiki itself states that he is mainly known as the wolf, along with 99% of the game calling him The Wolf of coruse, shouldn't he be referred to as "The Wolf" on all the pages he is mentioned? It'd be easy to make a page redirect for new players or people who don't own the game that assume he is normally called Sekiro, and it makes more sense logically.
- Sat Mar 30, 2019 4:10 pm #16107259
Also it'd just be nice to have some continuity throughout the wiki, because I've seen pages where he's been called The Wolf and some where he's called Sekiro, which is probably even more confusing for newcomers.
- Thu Jun 06, 2019 2:50 pm #16126127
Everyone: “Oh, hi Wolf” Isshin: “SeKiRo” Fextra: “Let”/ call him by the name on the title because most of our readers don’t even own the game”
- Sat Aug 24, 2019 12:53 pm #16141635
Sekiro literally means 'One-armed Wolf'. You're being pedantic as ***** by complaining about this.

So is his American voice. The voice acting in this game is solid, and on the bright side, you can actually understand the English VA. But then again, we all know the weebs wouldn't be able to jerk off to anything but Japanese, so here we are.

If you've watch Bleach and on *** dub, it's the same voice actor of Ulquiorra Schiffer.
- Mon Apr 25, 2022 11:14 pm #16647164
The american voice actor is also great. My mind gets distracted way to easily to read subtitles so playing in Japanese wasn't a choice for me

Hmm, something isn't right here. He's supposed to be "Immortal" or "undying", right? when he dies, he just respawned back in the nearest save point. So, why did his arm not grow back after he died the first time?
- Mon Apr 08, 2019 6:16 am #16110966
I believe the curse only activates when he dies. He didn’t actually died against Genishiro so the resurrection never took place.
- Fri Apr 12, 2019 5:38 am #16112429
Immortality does not equal regeneration. Technically, you could cut his head and all his limbs and he'll still be "alive" but be unable to move or do anything, I guess.
- Fri May 03, 2019 2:02 pm #16118874
In dungeons and dragons the spell "resurrection" specifically states it does not restore lost limbs. I know it's outside lore to this, but made sense to me, as another said. It would be terrible if Sekiro became Potato and resurrected with no appendages.

What about the Headless ape? When we beat him as the Guardian ape, he doesn't regenerate his head upon meeting him a second time in Ashina depths.
- Thu Sep 26, 2019 5:41 pm #16150686
The Headless Ape is inmortal because of the centepede living inside of it, but that thing can´t actually heal his wounds, just like the Corrupted Monk

Why is the japanese form of the names "Sekiro" and "Wolf" writen in katakana? That's the alphabet used in japanese to refer to outside and western words. Sekiro in japanese is written with the kanjis "隻狼" or hiragana "せきろ" and Wolf is "狼" or "おおかみ", although this word can be pronounced "ro" if it is used alongside another kanji (onyomi and kunyomi readings), that's why this kanji is read "Ro" when alongside Sekiwan "隻" or "せきわん", meaning a part of a pair. Just supress the "wan and you have the name Sekiro.

If I recall correctly, Katakana wasn't created for the sole purpose for foreign words. It was pretty much used as a simplified writing system for Japanese.

"If I recall correctly, Katakana wasn't created for the sole purpose for foreign words. It was pretty much used as a simplified writing system for Japanese." If I too recall correctly, you are right. But the problem here is that this name have to be written with kanji right away. Why? Because those kanjis are RIGHT BEHIND THE "SEKIRO" IN THE TITLE OF THE GAME! (Capital letters not for angry at you, of course not, just a rant...)
