Hong Danhwa (홍 단화, Hong Danhwa) was a member of Team Yura's Simps during the Train City Tournament. While the other members of the team were left behind or "dumped" by Ha Yura, Danhwa was allowed to tag along with Yura as her "bodyguard" so she can safely meet up with Team Rachel. He is a D-rank Regular and the owner of Krishna, one of the 7 Sacred Swords.

After he was left behind and dumped as well by Ha Yura, he followed Team Baam and act as Yeon Yihwa's "white knight" (protector or bodyguard).

He was last seen being knock down on the ground together along with Yeon Yihwa by two assassins named Yool and Kell from the Zahard's Army, at the begining of Part 3, which happen somewhere after the 44th floor, several months later after the attack event of Zahard's Army at the Last Station.[1]

History

Somewhere in the Tower, in his homeland, Danhwa was chosen to be the owner of the sword "Krishna". After being chosen, he came into the Tower.

Appearance and Personality

Danhwa is a young, tall man with fair skin, blonde hair and generally good looks. He wears a generally white and blue themed ensemble and carries around with him an interesting sword.

He is a very gentlemanly person who will even sacrifice himself for his peers, as demonstrated with Ha Yura, even though she showed a ruthless streak by nonchalantly killing a member of her own 'team'. He is seemingly very loyal, as he openly stated he would betray his current set of allies if it meant helping Ha Yura.

Revolution Road

VS Boro at Train City

Danhwa participated in "The Last 7" game and was one of the Regulars who caught the attention of Aka's subordinates. He later joined Ha Yura's team and was picked to participate in the "Crazy Yellow Ball" game in the first match of the tournament. However he was never called into action.

Along with Yura, he escaped the tournament area and fled to meet with Rachel. As they got to the Entrance floor he and Yura encountered Hwa Ryun's group and they gave chase but the two escaped after Yura turned the guardian on. As the two continued to flee, they were caught up and Danhwa stayed behind to allow Yura enough time to escape with Boro being his opponent. Using his Ignition Weapon, he fought against Boro, gaining the upper hand very briefly, but was soon overwhelmed when Boro used his unique martial arts style to bypass Krishna's attacks and impale Danhwa with his needle. Boro then asked why he was helping Yura and he replied asking if Boro knew what was on the train. Boro told him that only hell existed on the train before leaving him.

Hoaqin

He appeared alongside Boro and Hanool Kang on the 37th Floor, after being given Hana Yu's Express Ticket. He asked Boro if what he was told was true and then listened as Boro revealed his history of his time on the Hell Express.

Wooden Horse

During the day, he, Boro and Hanool Kang finally arrived at the Wooden Horse station and soon entered inside. At 10:30PM, Aka arrived along with Sachi Faker who stated the train had arrived at the Wooden Horse.

At the 'Altar' Danhwa was one of the Regulars that witnessed Hoaqin effortlessly decimating a large amount of the Regulars at the station.

Later, with only 10 minutes left to board the train, he and the others raced towards the stairs of the train but caught the attention of Hoaqin on the way. With freak lightning interrupting Hoaqin's assault, Baam, Koon and Rak swiftly arrived on the stairs leading into the train. A brief scuffle broke out between the two sides but it was interrupted when they were all teleported to the train conductor's office. The conductor introduced himself and then informed them about a game that would decide who would become the Slayer candidate in a month's time. At that, he teleported them away to different locations in the train.

A Month

Their group immediately encountered the guardian Yokim and they planned on taking him down until Hwa Ryun suggested that from that point onwards, Baam was to take all tests by himself in order to prepare for challenging Hoaqin. Danhwa then watched as Baam took on and eventually defeated Yokim allowing them to pass the stage.

During their traversing of the train's pathways, the group eventually encountered the "god" of guardians. After a brief discussion, Baam took the guardian on but the guardian snatched Baam up and took him away. Danhwa and the others then waited for three weeks for Baam to return.

Eventually Baam hurriedly returned and the group narrowly made it to the 4th stage in time.

The Dallar Show

Danhwa and the others listened to the rules of the Dallar Show and then watched as Koon coolly won the first round. During the second round game, "Transferring the sweetfish", Hong Danhwa was partnered with Koon and Hwa Ryun.

The 'Name Hunt' Station

After Karaka was wounded by Kranos, Karaka noticed that some regulars tried to escape and ride the Hell Train. These regulars are Androssi, Rak, Yihwa, and Danhwa. Karaka then quickly appear behind them and took them as hostage. After Yihwa proposed her plan to Androssi, she qucikly swing and ignite the Krishna sword to distract Karaka. As Rak, Yihwa, and Danhwa fall to the cliff, Yuri then launch her Rose Shower attack to finish Karaka. Yuje managed to saved Yihwa and Danhwa them later, while Rak ended up in the Hidden Floor. Since then, Danhwa climbed the Tower with Yeon Yihwa.

Tower of God: Part 3

Several months later after the Battle of the Last Station, Yihwa and Danhwa were defeated by two mysterious regulars sent by Levy. Which later known to be Yool and Kell. When Baam finally confronted Yool and Kel, Yool revealed that Yihwa and Danhwa were kept as hostages to make Baam cooperate with their mysterious "captain".

Powers and Abilities

He possesses higher skills than average regulars, as his skills were noted by both Moontari[2] and Ha Yura.

Danhwa is a swordsman specialist who wields a sword called "Krishna" (크리슈나, keulisyuna) which is also an Ignition Weapon. It can release powerful yellow-orange blasts of shinsoo when swung. However, his sword skills and experiences are still far below Boro.[3]

Notes and Trivia

  • Hong Danhwa shares the same last name and generation name as Hong Chunhwa as well as also wielding an Ignition Weapon of his own too. This may mean that they are from the same family and may even know each other. SIU stated that they are from the same village.[4]

Quotes

  • (To Yeon Yihwa) "Protecting women is the knight's duty that I received from this sword. I'm simply trying my best to accomplish that duty. Of course, there is another reason for going after Yura."[5]
