“We've been working together for weeks. You gotta tell me who you are.”
“You will know all. . . when the time is right.”
The Mechanic and Unagami, about the latter's identity

Emperor Unagami is the mysterious ruler of Prime Empire and the leader of his army. Sometime after the Liberation of the Never-Realm, Unagami associated with the Mechanic for unknown intentions.

Following the success of The Mechanic's robbery, Unagami, speaking to The Mechanic through a monitor, told his associate that the use of the upgraded noodle truck in the robbery was merely a test for a much bigger plan. He also assured The Mechanic that he would reveal his identity when the time is right. The criminal then asked Unagami for help on another project, though he did not reply and the monitor simply shut off.

Later on, The Mechanic returned to the monitor, angrily striking it and attracting Unagami's attention. The Mechanic told him that he wanted to feel, and in response, Unagami printed plans for a mechanical arm, allowing the criminal to feel objects he touched. Once again, The Mechanic questioned the villain's identity, to which he revealed his name.
