Devilman Wiki

The Cheyenne Tribe was a real world Native American tribe that came into conflict with US settlers in the 1800's. They welcomed both Akira Fudo and Ryo Asuka into their number in the interquel manga 'Shin Devilman'.


The Cheyenne welcomed the lost time travelers Ryo Asuka and Akira Fudo into their tribe, after they found themselves lost in the desert. The two quickly became accustomed to their way of being over several weeks, and became good friends with the Cheyenne chief, Crazy Horse and his sister Tiana. The latter of which grew feelings for Ryo.

After sometime, the tribe fell victim to the 7th Calvary, led by George Armstrong Custer. The American soldiers raped, pillaged and slaughtered their way through the tribe, killing all they could find whilst the majority of its warriors were away, on a mission to make a pact with the rival Sioux Tribe, to combat Custer and his men.

In retaliation for the slaughter, Akira Fudo hunted down the Calvary, and killed them all. The next morning, the remains of the soldiers were discovered by the Sioux and remaining Cheyenne.
