Tenma Matsukaze is a Midfielder. He is the protagonist in Inazuma Eleven GO. His hair pattern is in the form of swirls to indicate his affinity to the wind. He is not very good at soccer, save for dribbling, but he shows great potential due to his ability to stand up to and stop Kyosuke's hissatsu shoot, Death Sword, without using a hissatsu technique himself. He was inspired to play soccer after Shuya Goenji saved him from serious injury by kicking a soccer ball the same way as he does Fire Tornado and/or Bakunetsu Screw, to change the trajectory of a wooden plank that was about to hit the young Tenma.
