In the game, Fushira is responsible for taking care of Shu (after Shu's parents were killed by the Land Shark). He is the blacksmith of Talta Village. When Shu, Jiro, and Kluke are dragged underground by the Land Shark, he left a note in his workshop knowing Shu would come back. Shu and the others meet up with Fushira and the rest of the villagers along the Coast Road to Jibral. After defeating the Steel-Eating Tigers, Shu, Jiro, Kluke, and Marumaro guide the village to Jibral seeing how they can use a Shadow. At the end of the game, Fushira makes an appearence at Kluke's birthday party.
Fushira was worried about Shu, but was also a bit jealous of his adventure.
In Blue Dragon Plus, Fushira is a playable character and is considered a Powerhouse character. He has the Shadow Rafflesia and can use buffs on his allies and himself. He is first summoning his Shadow after he volunteers to go along with Shu and the gang to the cube.
Fushira's role as Shu's grandfather stays true to the anime, but he doesn't really get a big part in the story like he does in the game.
"Shu! Shu! Where are you?!" - Fushira's first line in the game.
"I don't know. But I can control it." - When he summons his Shadow in front of everyone.
- In the first game, Fushira is the only playable character without a Shadow in the beginning. The player only gets to play as him once throughout the whole game.
