What happens to Kisaki Tetta at the end of Tokyo Revengers?

Kisaki Tetta is the primary antagonist of Tokyo Revengers who’s indirectly responsible for more than half of the deaths in the series.

Unlike other antagonists in the series, Kisaki uses his manipulation skills to achieve goals. He hasn’t faced any repercussions for his actions in the anime either.

Fans have been wondering about Kisaki’s fate at the end of the series. Does he redeem himself in the finale?

At the end of the manga, Kisaki reforms into a better man after Takemichi befriended him during their childhood. He also establishes his own business with Hajime Kokonoi several years later. 

Check out what happens to Kisaki in every timeline and how he gets his own happy ending in the final timeline.

SPOILERS AHEAD! This page contains spoilers from Tokyo Revengers manga.

Kisaki’s life and crimes in every timeline

Kisaki’s fate differs vastly in every timeline. In some timelines, his devious schemes are successful. Meanwhile in other timelines, he fails or even dies.

1. First timeline

Status – Acting leader of Toman

Victims – Takemichi (attempted murder), Hina

Kisaki is the acting leader of Toman in the first timeline. We don’t know much about Kisaki of the first timeline. 

Kisaki might be the true culprit behind Takemichi’s attempted murder as well since Akkun is his lackey. Akkun pushed Takemichi in front of the tracks on Kisaki’s orders.

2. The 9th time leap

Status – Third Division Captain of Toman

Victims – None

Kisaki officially becomes a part of Toman, by becoming the Third Division Captain. But it’s revealed later on that he is the leader of Valhalla, and he merely joined Toman to manipulate Mikey.

He climbs the ranks and becomes Toman’s second-in-command, since he rescues Mikey from getting arrested for Kazutora’s murder.

3. The 12th time leap

Status – Second-in-command of Toman

Victims – Chifuyu, Hina

Kisaki remains a bigwig in Toman. But this time, Takemichi is his ally. He uses the corrupt Takemichi of this timeline to kill Hina.

He kills Chifuyu for spying on him, and attempts to kill Takemichi as well.

4. The 13th time leap

Status – Fired from Toman

Victims – Future Takemichi and Naoto

Kisaki actually loses his position in Toman during the 13th time leap. Mikey fires Kisaki during the Black Dragon arc after Chifuyu informs him of his betrayal. His dismissal from the gang triggers Mikey to kill all the Toman members in the future.

5. The 17th time leap

Status – Dead, due to an accident

Victims – Izana, Emma

In a surprising twist of fate, Kisaki ends up dying in an accident in chapter 185, just after Takemichi’s 17th time leap. Let’s understand the course of events that led to his death.

In chapter 183, Kisaki reveals his past and explains why he keeps on killing Hina in every timeline again and again. He also lies that he’s a time traveler, like Takemichi. His morbid declaration enrages Takemichi and he picks up a gun to kill him.

Kisaki flees when he notices that Takemichi is trying to kill him. However, when Takemichi shouts out that he won’t let him travel back in time, he stops right in the middle of a crosswalk.

He is talking back to Takemichi when a truck hits him, promptly killing him.

6. Final timeline

Status – Vice President of TK&KO Group

Victims – None

After his death during the 17th time leap, we don’t see Kisaki again until the final timeline. Takemichi saves everyone in the final timeline, so Kisaki is revived as well.

Takemichi realizes that he needs to stop Kisaki from turning into an obsessive killing machine to save Hina and his loved ones. To achieve this goal, he befriends a young Kisaki and establishes Toman with him and Mikey.

Takemichi’s companionship changes Kisaki as a person and he’s no longer bitter over Hina and Takemichi’s relationship in the new timeline.

He establishes TK&KO group with Hajime Kokonoi several years later. In chapter 278, he attends Takemichi’s and Hina’s wedding, even though he doesn’t look too happy about their union.

What made Tetta Kisaki so evil in the first place?

Tetta Kisaki wasn’t born evil. Rather, his past triggered him to turn into a murderer.

Kisaki’s classmates used to shun him because he was too intelligent. But Hina, who studied in the same cram school, befriended him without any bias. That’s why he falls for her.

However, when she is getting bullied one day, he doesn’t help her out and runs away. It’s Takemichi who saves her instead, and Hina starts to fall for him.

Kisaki resents the fact that Hina chose Takemichi over him, and he hates Takemichi for stealing Hina from him. This resentment gradually turns him evil.
