Muneshige wields two chainsaws called the Lightning Edge in battle. Although he is devoted to Sōrin, Muneshige does not necessarily share his religious views. Sōrin has a terrible habit of playfully humiliating him, but Muneshige will never let his anger show. Once, in a cutscene, he even imagined striking Sōrin.
Muneshige has become famous as a character whose thoughts the player is always hearing aloud (for he rarely speaks).
