Guilty Gear sprite Zato.png

Zato-1 is a man who sacrificed his eyesight to achieve greater power; when he allowed the Forbidden Beast Eddie into his body, he was given the ability to manipulate shadows. A successful assassin in the Assassin's Guild who had strong feelings for Millia Rage before she betrayed him, Zato was taken into custody by the International Police Force and was thrown into prison. At the start of Guilty Gear, Testament releases Zato from his prison, giving him a chance to participate in the upcoming tournament. Zato, feeling nothing but hate for Millia after her betrayal, enters the tournament to set things right.

Zato-1 takes advantage of his shadow manipulation abilities in combat, relying heavily on the forms his shadows take to attack the opponent. Though Zato is one of the toughest characters to master in Guilty Gear, he can also be one of the most devastating. One of the more technical characters in the game, Zato can use his shadows to play keep-away. With attacks that allow him to bring his shadows up from below the opponent's feet, attacking up-close and directly may not be the best course of action when playing as Zato. Though Zato can be hard to master, he does have a nice perk; jumping and dashing gives him temporary transformation into a demon (similar, in a way, to Demitri from Capcom's Darkstalkers).
