"Right, wrong... Nobody's got a clue what the difference is in this town. So I'm gonna have more fun... and live crazier than any of 'em."

Majima Goro is a major recurring character in the Yakuza series and one of the main playable protagonists of Yakuza 0 and Yakuza: Dead Souls, as well as the Majima Saga of Yakuza Kiwami 2.

Majima is a resourceful, charismatic, and commanding individual. He has gained the respect of friend and foe alike, often with his ferocious abilities in battle. He has a fierce, somewhat twisted sense of loyalty, especially when it comes to his rival-turned-friend, Kazuma Kiryu. Majima believes he is the only one entitled to kill Kiryu, this appears to have become somewhat of a running joke between the two rather than a true threat.

He is polite and respectful by nature to civilians and to his superiors, and is surprisingly pragmatic, all three of which made him a fantastic businessman throughout his life. He is shown to go out of his way to help civilians that are put in danger by yakuza affairs, specifically women and children, who he has a soft spot for. He is shown to hold on very closely to the past, and never forgets a promise. He is loyal to a fault and will put anyone that he cares about above himself.


Majima has a lean build, which he utilizes to achieve incredible levels of speed and agility. He appears to have more muscular legs than arms, which is likely due to his reliance on kicking and acrobatics.

His tattoo covers his biceps, upper chest, and stretches from his neck to the back of his thighs. He is missing his left eye, which was gouged out for insubordination in 1985. His eyelid appears to still be intact, presumably due to Majima keeping his eye open when it was stabbed.

"What!? After all I just went through? That's a real kick in the dick."
