Satoshi Tsuchida (土田 聡史 Tsuchida Satoshi) is Seirin High's second year power forward.
Tsuchida is one of the taller and larger Seirin players. He has short, spikey black hair. He has very thick eyebrows and his eyes look like they are closed, narrowed down to thin, horizontal lines. He wears the red, black and white Seirin High jersey with the number 9.
When Seirin's past was revealed, it is shown that he hasn't changed at all from last year.
Not much is known about Tsuchida, but he does like to play basketball very much. He is rarely in the center of attention, because he is quite shy. He also likes cats, but when he approaches one, it always bites his hand.
Tsuchida joined the newly formed Seirin basketball club after they shouted out their resolve at the morning ceremony. He turned in his application when they were busy training and became the team's substitute power forward. He sat on the bench and cheered Seirin on during the Interhigh preliminaries.
Tsuchida hasn't clearly been seen basketballing, but as a previous regular members of Seirin, he possesses regular ballhandling skills. Just like Koganei, Tsuchida only started basketball in high school. It was also mentioned that Tsuchida's speciality is rebounding. He has trained on that skill for the past year.
- On the first character poll, Tsuchida ranked 21st, with 168 votes.
- On last year's test results, he ranked 81st out of 300. He scored best on sciences.
- In the Kuroko no Basuke Q&A section, Fujimaki revealed that Tsuchida is the only one on the Seirin team that is going out with a girl. In the third novel, it was revealed that this girl is in fact Mitobe's little sister, shocking Mitobe greatly. Later on in the manga, Tsuchida is seen being encouraged by his supposed girlfriend, that notably does not resemble Mitobe's family.
- In a Q&A section, Tadatoshi Fujimaki stated that Tsuchida's eyes are already opened to the maximum point.
