Ueshima (上島, Ueshima) is a Deadman and a former member of Scar Chain. It is presumed that he died during the Deadman mass prison break.


At some point in the past, Ueshima was imprisoned in Deadman Wonderland. Later, he joins a resistance faction within the prison known as Scar Chain.


He is a tall and slender person. Ueshima has dark brown hair that is spiked in the back. He has chin-length bangs that are kept parted down to frame both sides of his face while some hang over his eyes. He wears a plain white shirt with a vest over it. The vest is bourdeaux with the top section of the vest khaki. He wears regular black pants.


Like other Scar Chain members, Ueshima appears to be a kind individual. He is quick to attack those who hurt his comrades.


Scar Chain Arc

He is first seen attending Nagi Kengamine's exposition in Scar Chain's base. He joined the main group in the prison break, passing through the restricted area and getting to the elevator.

Ueshima summons Branch of Sin

Ueshima fights alongside Scar Chain.

When the elevator stops, they are awaited by the Undertakers, surprising everyone. Ueshima summons his Branch of Sin and attacks, but his Branch is nullified by the Worm Eater. It is presumed that he died in the Undertakers attack as he wasn't seen again.


Branch of Sin: Ueshima is a Deadman which means he can freely move his blood out of his body.

Ueshima Branch of Sin

Ueshima's Branch of Sin.

Branch of Sin: Unnamed Branch: Ueshima's personalized Branch of Sin takes the form of two bear traps that surround his hands. Ueshima can send these towards his enemies. He only uses his Branch of Sin in the manga.

Differences between Manga and Anime

  • During the prison break the anime shows that he was immediately killed by Genkaku's shooting, even before he could attack with his Branch of Sin.
