Don't worry too much about them but take it into account.

A man like you is truly fit to be king. I would never be able to understand the world of politics and national budgets. Become king and work towards making this country even better than it is now. That will be best for the people. I would be happy to be appointed to my current position again, once you're king.

Poron, let's surpass our old man together!!

Pitten Chao is an experienced and talented knight from the Parancho Kingdom, a small self-sufficient kingdom that resides in the Free Cities Alliance, where he had the title of Major General. 

He wears a majestic golden armor and is respected and known for being the strongest in Parancho, being nicknamed "The Flawless Golden Knight". He has Sword Combat, Guard and Teaching skills. His strength was recognised even by Tillday Sharp, who asked him to train her. In battle, he's noted for having a very high magical resistance and great taunting skills.

He's an old acquaintance of Patton from times where he visited the Parancho Kingdom. He first makes an appearance demonstrating his extraordinary resistance to magic when Rance and company ponder ways to overcome the defenses of an automated magical defense system.

Due to his handsome features and good manners, Rance is initially opposed to him joining the Revolutionary Army, as Rance believes he will be popular with women. However, Rance eventually gets along with him after misunderstanding him to be homosexual.


Known as "The Flawless Golden Knight", Pitten excels as a warrior in all regards, possessing exceptional offensive and defensive capabilities. His swordsmanship in particular is considered great enough to earn praise from the notoriously overconfident Miracle Tou. He also possesses a very high cap of 43 which he reached.


Pitten's armor allows him to shrug off magical attacks.

Perhaps Pitten's most notable ability is the unusually high magical resistance granted to him by his armor, which is made from a rare alloy. With it, Pitten is virtually immune to all magical attacks, even more so than a top level mage would be. Because this is a very unique quality for a warrior to have, Pitten is highly skilled at battling magic-using opponents.

Beyond his physical prowess, Pitten is skilled at bringing out the inner talents of others, with both Tillday Sharp and his younger brother Poron becoming much stronger fighters under his tutelage.


  • In the Rance IX character poll, he was the lowest ranked of the male heroes.
  • An alternate universe version of him appears in Mamatoto, where his personality is largely the same.
