Naofumi Iwatani | The Rising of the Shield Hero (WIKI)

At first glance, Naofumi looks like the villain of the group. The way he treats people, and the methods he uses to solve problems are all a bit evil.

However, he is the one who cleans up after everybody’s mess for the sake of the people who had to suffer from the consequences of the reckless behaviors of others, especially the Spear, Sword, and Bow Hero.
