Noland Hardy is a legendary brawler from Earth who is widely known throughout the universe as either the "Master Blaze" or the "Redeemer". Growing up, he envied his father's power and skill in the pro league, so much so that he strove to be just like him when he became a brawler. When he finally becomes one once he came of age, he used his prodigious talents for a lot more than fame in the arena, often using his power to combat terrorists who were targeting his friends. His actions have earned him the distinction of being called a "Resistor" and is revered as its leader. Even after the people of Earth had given up on him, he continues to fight against the unpredictable wave of enemies with like-minded individuals in hopes that his efforts will truly mean something for the people he cares about the most.
Uncharacteristic of the main protagonists in the series, Noland has an extremely high kill count. It is the highest kill count of all of the Resistors, surpassing even Markus who is seemingly reputed as the assassin of the group.

-Noland is suggested to be the most antagonistic main protagonist out of his peers (Dan Kuso, Calvin Kuro, and Jimmy Kyudai). > To further back up this claim, Noland is the only one out of those four to intentionally kill his opponent in battle. He also is the only one to willingly break the law to accomplish his goals, even reaching the point of maliciously assaulting another human being for information. ~ To go even further, Noland is the only protagonist to be responsible for a massacre. He has the highest kill count out of any main protagonist in the series. > He is also the only protagonist to have himself compared to another antagonist that shared the same viewpoint as he did.
