Kanamoto Atsushi (金本 敦(かなもと あつし), Kanamoto Atsushi?), known as Johnny Black (ジョニー・ブラック, Jonī Burakku?) in «Sword Art Online» (SAO), is a minor antagonist in the Aincrad Arc, Phantom Bullet Arc, and Alicization Arc. He was one of the 10,000 players who were trapped in Sword Art Online, where he was a member of the infamous red guild, «Laughing Coffin». In the game, he was partnered with Red-Eyed XaXa and well known for using poisons in battles.[1] A year after Sword Art Online was cleared, Atsushi was invited to help with the Death Gun plot by his former Laughing Coffin partner. At the end of the incident, Atsushi managed to escape arrest with a spare dose of a dangerous drug, succinylcholine. Atsushi resurfaced half a year later, when he assaulted Kirigaya Kazuto, while he was accompanying Yuuki Asuna home, and injected him with a lethal dose of the drug.

AppearanceEdit

Real World/Sword Art OnlineEdit

AnimeJohnnyBlack

Johnny Black as he appears in the anime.

In Sword Art Online, Johnny wore tight-fitting black leather armor, thin black pants, black leather studded boots, and a black mask resembling a sack with holes cut for eyes.[2] Like most of the Laughing Coffin, he wore a dark colored hooded cloak and a mask.[3] His hands were armored, and he also appeared to be very thin.[3]

In the real world, Atsushi has an uneven tangle of long hair, thin cheeks covered by a stubby beard, and silver earrings on his ears. He wears a thick silver necklace, a discolored black T-shirt with leather pants of the same color and high laced boots, giving off a shabby overall impression.[4]

PersonalityEdit

Johnny Black is a sadistic, cold-blooded killer who likes to have fun with his victims before killing them. For example, when he, XaXa, and PoH had captured Schmitt, Caynz, and Yolko on the Hill of the Cross, he suggested having a fight-to-the-death game among their captives, with the promise of freedom as a reward to the victor of the game. However, PoH revealed that he had killed the winner of such a game the last time anyway.

ChronologyEdit

Aincrad ArcEdit

A Murder Case in the AreaEdit

In April 2024, Johnny, along with PoH and XaXa, was hired by Grimlock to assassinate Schmitt, Yolko, and Caynz to prevent anyone from learning the truth behind the murder of Griselda, the leader of the Golden Apple guild. On April 23, while Schmitt was being confronted by Caynz and Yolko at the Hill of the Cross, the dagger user stealthily approached an unaware Schmitt and stabbed him with a knife dipped in high-level poison, thus paralysing the man. Cheering over disabling his target as XaXa held Yolko and Caynz at swordpoint, Johnny excitedly proposed forcing their targets to kill each other for survival upon PoH wondering how they could derive amusement from their prey but complained when PoH reminded him that they killed the survivor the last time they played the game.

August, 2024Edit

On a certain night of August that year, the Clearers launched a crusade to vanquish the red guild and Johnny was captured along with eleven other «Laughing Coffin» members.[5]

Phantom Bullet ArcEdit

Atsushi served as the accomplice of the Shinkawa brothers in the Death Gun incident, injecting «Death Gun»'s victims with succinylcholine in real life, just as they were shot with Death Gun's pistol in-game during the Bullet of Bullets (BoB) tournament. He was personally responsible for the deaths of two BoB finalists: Pale Rider and Garret. After the incident, Atsushi was the only member of the Death Gun trio who had not been caught by the police, escaping with one last syringe of Succinylcholine.

Alicization ArcEdit

Alicization BeginningEdit

Half a year after the «Death Gun» incident, Atsushi followed Kazuto and Asuna on their way to Asuna's house, until Kazuto noticed that he was following them. He presented himself and menaced Kazuto with a syringe of Succinylcholine and later stabbed him. Although he was stopped and captured by the police[citation needed], he succeeded in hurting Kazuto severely.
