This article is about Katana (G2). For the generation one version, see Katana (G1).

Tatsu Yamashiro (山城 竜、also known as Katana) is a supporting character in the second generation of the DC Super Hero Girls franchise. She initially appears in the episode "Soul Sisters" as the main antagonist, but eventually reforms and becomes an ally to the Super Hero Girls.


Tatsu is a tall, slender and pretty-looking teenage Japanese girl with olive skin, carob-brown eyes and long, straight black hair with gray streaks. She also wore minimal makeup which consists of light blush, and dark red lipstick on her lips.

As a civilian, Tatsu wears a light gray hoodie vest with black drawstrings, a thin red stripe on the front, and a red dot on the upper-left side (resembling the dot in the Japanese flag), worn over a skin-tight red shirt with long sleeves containing finger holes for her hands. She also wore a set of dark gray capri leggings and red-and-black slip-on shoes.

As Katana, she wears her signature white mask with a red dot that resembles the flag of Japan. She dressed in clothing to resemble a type of armor, which consists of a light gray, armor-like top over a red-collared, dark brown long-sleeved mesh-top, matching-colored mesh-tights under a black skirt with red trim going around it, and red knee-high boots with attached knee-pads. Adding to her iconic look is her katana sword with a black hilt and a silver blade.


  • Superhuman Strength: Katana is able to match Wonder Woman's physical strength.
  • Superhuman Speed: Katana is fast enough to blitz the Super Hero Girls and keep up with Wonder Woman in close combat.
  • Expert Swordsmanship
  • Martial Arts


  • Soul Taker: A katana that has the ability to take the souls of opponents.


Main Article: Katana (G2)/Relationships


Katana is what can be described as a passionate swordsman, with an intense character defined by a silent fierceness that matches Diana Prince's own. She is a fastidious sort who takes discipline to heart, often taking the time to hone one's acumen as often as training the body.

She used to be a well-intended extremist who used to be extremely unforgiving towards the criminally corrupt as well, at one time believing it was a hero's duty to punish and avenge the crimes placated by the wicked to the most extreme of degrees. This narrow mindset also made her a little naive, as Katana once mistook the Super Hero Girls for villains after having dispatched most of Metropolis's criminals. This train of thought was further emboldened by the feeble means in which the reviled, decadent souls are handled by law enforcement.
