Kotetsu Sudou (須藤 煌鉄 Sudou Kotetsu) is a minor character in the anime series Free! who appears in Free!–the Final Stroke– the first volume. He is on the same team as Kaede Kinjo and a former individual medley swimmer who now competes in the breastroke. He is seen coming in third against Ikuya Kirishima, who comes in 5th, at a qualifying meet for the Fukuoku Tournament.


Kotetsu is a tall, muscular young man with swept back dark brown hair and amber-colored eyes. Like Kaede and the other Team Japan members, he wears the team uniform - white with red and black accents.


His attitude towards Ikuya upon meeting him is one of mild disdain while maintaining a smirk on his face.


Kotetsu was a strong individual medley competitor until several top swimmers in the breastroke category retired and he decided to focus on competitions in that stroke only.
