Egome Zakkarite (イゴーム・ザッカライト, Igōmu Zakkaraito?) is a supporting character in the Alicization Arc. He was a competitor at the Zakkaria Sword Arts Tournament and a blood relative to the leader of Zakkaria.
Egome has sandy-colored hair and wears a reddish-brown uniform.
Egome holds a high emphasis on nobility and he looks down on commoners. Due to his status as a noble, he is extremely arrogant, which is illustrated by how he refers to himself in the 3rd person with the "-sama" honorific[† 1] and how he believes that a commoner with no Sacred Task of being a «Guard» should not have the right to challenge him or to become a member of the Zakkaria guards. He also believes that anything that does not break the rules directly is acceptable and, due to his nobility and arrogance, he consciously searches for such loopholes in the Taboo Index to abuse to reach his goals.
He is the one who planted a «Large Marsh Horsefly» on a horse causing it to go wild. Before his match with Kirito, he bribes the sword handler, letting him have a higher level sword than his opponent. Kirito, however, defeats him by using the Aincrad style Twin-consecutive-hit Skill «Snake Bite», shattering his blade in the process.
