Matsu is a quite high-ranked minion of Hōgen.
When John and Hiro escape their prison in Hōgen’s base, Matsu is held responsible. He is send out to bring back the prisoners, dead or alive. Matsu quickly finds the fugitives and the fight begins.
Before Matsu manages to wound John, John bites off Matsu's ear. Matsu retreats to the back of his group and lets his minions fight John, Rossi, Lefty and Tommy alone.
As the fight becomes worse, Matsu's minions bring Lefty to him. Matsu tells Lefty that he does what he does to protect his family, but Lefty sarcastically tells him that his children must be proud of a father who lives by trampling others. Angered, Matsu kills him by ripping out his throat.
He then retreats to the back again, waiting for Hōgen to show up and finish off John. After John's death, he returns back to fort along with other minions.
