Katsuragi (葛城) is a playable character in the PlayStation sub-series for Senran Kagura.
A third-year student at Hanzō National Academy. She’s over-the-top and easily moved to tears, yet she has an older sister-like demeanor that’s thoroughly endeared her to the other members of her class.
She's best known for her bold, excitable personality... and her "dirty old man"-like tendency to grab her classmates' breasts. Despite that habit, she fits in with her friends as a "big sister" alongside Ikaruga and is always ready with a word of advice... even if that advice usually involves where to stand so they're easier to reach.
With all that said, she does have a serious side. Her parents, both shinobi who refused to carry out a certain assassination mission, are now fugitives under the constant threat of death. Katsuragi's singular goal as a shinobi student is to rise through the ranks, eventually gaining enough prestige within the shinobi world that she can have her parents pardoned. To that end, she kicks her way through her opposition with a pair of special, heavy boots.
Katsuragi has long, soft blonde hair worn with a blue headband that has a ribbon on each side of the head. Her bright eyes match, and she is usually depicted with perverted expressions.
Her turnover outfit is simplistic; composed of her usual white Hanzō school uniform, unbuttoned, revealing most of her torso underneath; particularly her breasts. Along with a blue plaid skirt, she wears long socks and her signature black and gold metal boots adorned with small blue tassels on either side, serving as her combat weapon of choice.
Katsuragi was defined by losing her parents; she vowed to become a stronger shinobi and gained an extremely vivacious personality and often hides her sorrow behind her mask of perversion. She takes almost every possible opportunity to grope her fellow shinobi with intense glee. She enjoys the thrill of battle and competition, leading her to often face-off against the stoic Hikage, whom she wishes would enjoy a fight with her.
After her battle against one of the Gessen Elite Shinobis, Katsuragi was surprised to realize what she'll be dealing with during the actual Shinobi Battle Royale. Suddenly, Imu walked in and noticed how exhausted Katsuragi was. Katsuragi asked who Imu was and then Imu replied by saying how she's a 3rd year at Hebijo.
Katsuragi was surprised to hear how Imu goes to the same school as Hikage. Imu felt disgusted to be grouped with Hikage. Feeling confused, Katsuragi asked Imu what business does she have with her. Imu then explained how Hanzō National Academy will fall to hell today.
Enthusiastically, Katsuragi states how she'll grope Imu to hell. Feeling disgusted again, Imu commanded Katsuragi to stop or else she'll literally make her a corspe. Katsuragi then explained how she was just revealing more of herself. With that said, Katsuragi became serious and stated how she can't afford to lose. Imu understood as the two finally got ready and began to fight one another.
After the fight, Imu was victorious, leaving Katsuragi severely injured. However, Katsuragi face was filled with satisfaction. Imu questioned why and then Katsuragi explained how the fight the two had was a good one. She then asked Imu for her own name, but Imu refused while saying how the loser doesn't gain anything, not even the winner's name. Katsuragi understood as she slowly collapsed to the ground and died.
Shinobi Girl's Heart
Katsuragi quickly grabbed Hibari's breasts from behind her and started to squeeze them. As Katsuragi questioned Hibari if her breasts make her shoulders stiff, Hibari replied with a no. The response shocked Katsuragi. Hibari then asked Katsuragi if she's finished groping her so that she can go shopping. Katsuragi slowly nodded and released Hibari's breasts from her clutches.
Having a hard time finding a good pair to grope, Mirai spotted Katsuragi thinking to herself. As she ignored her, Katsuragi motivated herself to keep on searching for a good pair. Mirai started to feel agitated by being ignored as she wondered what Katsuragi was talking about. Katsuragi wondered where the nearby voice is coming from as she looked around. The anger within Mirai went up even more as she tried getting Katsuragi's attention. As Katsuragi finally made eye contact with Mirai, she apologized for ignoring while stating how she's looking for breasts to grope and how Mirai's invisible to her due to her lack of breasts. Right after she finished her sentence, Mirai decided to let all of her anger out by attacking Katsuragi.
Katsuragi states to herself how adventures must keep moving forward. Nearby, Ryōbi tried to get Katsuragi's attention. Ignoring her, Katsuragi then states how she must keep an eye out for her hidden treasure. Feeling frustrated, Ryōbi questioned Katsuragi on why she's ignoring her. Katsuragi wonders where the voice nearby is coming from. Ryōbi continues to get Katsuragi's attention as she raises her voice to her. Katsuragi finally noticed Ryōbi as she examines her chest. Sadly, due to Ryōbi not having a rack, Katsuragi treats her the same way she did to Mirai earlier. Ryōbi was shocked to see Katsuragi grab her like that as she became more frustrated. She then transformed into her shinobi outfit, which caused her rack to increase. Katsuragi was happy to see how shiny they were as Ryōbi began attacking her.
Katsuragi noticed Miyabi being in a hurry. Miyabi explained to Katsuragi how someone gave her a gift and things started getting hectic for her. Katsuragi realized that it must have been one of Miyabi's fans that gave her the gift while teasing her by saying how it must be rough for Miyabi to be a pretty boy. Quickly, Miyabi corrected Katsuragi by saying that she's a girl. Suddenly, Katsuragi started examining Miyabi's breasts, which made Miyabi feel very uncomfortable. She then started squeezing the pair one by one. Miyabi demanded Katsuragi to stop at once, but Katsuragi didn't listen as she states on how she's possibly making Miyabi's fans jealous. Miyabi then tries persuading Katsuragi to stop by explaining how she has a prior engagement to attend to, so she has no time to deal with her. Katsuragi apologized to Miyabi, but she can't let her treasure get away from her this time.
Katsuragi noticed how Ryōna is down. Quickly, Ryōna requested Katsuragi to bully her Katsuragi asked why while Ryōna explained how she's losing strength due to no one bullying her in days. As Katsuragi began groping Ryōna, Ryōna was enjoying it as she asked Katsuragi to keep on going. Katsuragi asked Ryōna if she could resist a little while realizing that she isn't looking for someone that loves being groped. As Katsuragi stopped, Ryōna pleaded Katsuragi to continue groping her. To herself, Katsuragi questioned what kind of predicament she got herself into.
Katsuragi states how she touched more breasts than she can count, but it's not enough to satisfy her. Suddenly, Haruka appeared and comments on how Katsuragi needs to reach her level. Katsuragi then denies the fact that Haruka can out-grope her, but Haruka insisted. With that said, Katsuragi and Haruka began a sexual harassment showdown to decide the one and only sexual harassment queen.
The sexual harrasment showdown continues has both Katsuragi and Haruka show off their groping techniques on one another. The battle has been raging on for the past three days so far.The two complimented one another with their exhausted voices. Katsuragi was surprised to have found a rival in the art of sexual harassment.
The thought of a rival caused her to decide to become a better master at sexual harassment than Haruka, even if it means to not graduate from Hanzō Academy after her third year.

Kagura Millennium Festival
Shinobi Girl's Heart
To her surprise and dismay, Katsuragi has become tired of boobs. It seems that sometimes you can have too much of a good thing. She struggles to think of something else to throw herself into and eventually hits upon butts. And not just butts - Katsuragi realizes that her single-minded devotion to boobs has led her to ignore the rest of the body entirely. So many things to grope...
Ryōbi is the first target of Katsuragi's attentions. Katsuragi finds her on the Hebijo Academy roof. She asks Ryōbi to do something fun with her. Ryōbi asks if "something fun" means her boobs being groped. Katsuragi replies that it's not about boobs this time. Ryōbi wails and tells Katsuragi not to touch her butt. Katsuragi gropes it anyway, complimenting its texture and shape. A fight breaks out with Katsuragi the eventual winner.
Katsuragi locates Yagyū and Yozakura at the Sensōji Temple Grounds. She greets her fellow Hanzō shinobi by asking Yagyū to let her touch her belly. Yagyū stiffly refuses, saying her belly belongs to Hibari. To Katsuragi this only gives it the irresistable lure of the forbidden. Yagyū notes that Katsuragi is going to try to touch her despite her refusal and resolves to fight to protect her belly. Yozakura is a confused bystander in all of this but ends up fighting on Yagyū's side. Katsuragi manages a few grabs of Yagyū during the fight and marvels at its softness. Yagyū is distraught that Katsuragi has stolen her belly from Hibari. Despite being her ally Yozakura can't resist squeezing it herself, much to Katsuragi's amusement. The fight ends with Katsuragi the victor.
Katsuragi's quest takes her to a village on Mt Orochi where she encounters Haruka. She compliments Haruka on her nice legs. Haruka is happy that Katsuragi noticed. Katsuragi wants to touch them but Haruka won't allow it. Katsuragi cops a feel anyway and Haruka moans that she wanted to tease Katsuragi a bit more. Katsuragi loses her mind in lewdness as usual and a fight ensues, which Katsuragi wins.
Not far from the village in the Mt Orochi training grounds, Katsuragi comes across her classmate Ikaruga, her rival Hikage and the shy Gessen shinobi Murakumo. Ikaruga is cross with Katsuragi, saying that Katsuragi has been sexually harassing people again. Murakumo calls her shameless. Katsuragi truly is without shame at this point, eyeing up Ikaruga's neck, Murakumo's armpits and Hikage's navel as groping targets. Ikaruga tries to remonstrate with her but Katsuragi is lost to lust. She licks and sniffs Ikaruga's neck which makes her laugh because it tickles. Murakumo's pits and Hikage's belly button get similar treatment. The brawl that follows is won by Katsuragi who says that no-one can stop her now.
Katsuragi finds Kafuru at the Festival Grounds. She says she knows Kafuru has a lovely smooth back and intends to stroke it. She does this and Kafuru finds it funny at first because it tickles but soon tells Katsuragi to stop. Drooling and babbling, Katsuragi pays no attention. Kafuru fights with her but Katsuragi wins. She declares that loving the female body is the greatest joy in life.
"It's not just the boobs... it's the entire body.", Katsuragi says to herself. She says that life is full of sorrow but as long as a person keeps on living they can find good things in life to enjoy, showing that she's really a profound philosopher and in no way just an indiscriminate groping pervert.
Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash
She is shown alongside the other Hanzō girls attending a barbeque with Ayame holding onto her arm. During this their invitation to the Peach Beach Splash tournament suddenly strikes the grill Asuka was using.
Katsuragi wields the mighty Dragon Rebellion, two big heavy metal boots, on her feet with ease and power. With them, her main battle priority is kicking. Like Yomi, Yozakura, and Hanabi, Katsuragi is a charge character, meaning she can charge her attacks to have her boots open up and expose razor blades that break enemy guards and deal even more damage than before.
"Katsuragi's a very powerful character, but she lacks in range and speed. She can be countered easily, so doing quick combos into Aerial Raves is the best opinion. Long-range enemies can be taken care of by jumping in. Her Frantic Mode limits her attacks, but increases her range and potential for combos. With that in mind, Frantic Mode may sometimes be the better option compared to Shinobi Transformation. On the subject of Secret Ninja Arts, her Tornado Spindle is her best choice." -Estival Versus: Katsuragi's Battle Card
