According to Minazuru, Benkei is described as "a warrior monk who is seven feets tall and is extraordinary strong".


Benkei is strong, hot-headed and a little impatient. He usually acts rash and sometimes can be mean to other people. However, deep inside his rude manner is a warrior's pure heart and an unbeatable will. He looks up to Yoshitsune as his superior and willing to stand by him no matter the cost.
