Side Tokyo Revengers Characters
Ken Ryuguji AKA Draken
Ken Ryuguji, or as his friends call him Draken, is a member of the Tokyo Manji Gang and second in command to Mikey since they are childhood friends. Draken has a very stoic and serious demeanour which is usually enough to scare most people out of his way, whether he is friends with them or not.

He takes on a mentor-like role towards Takemichi, helping him to navigate the complex world of gang violence and encouraging him to become stronger and more confident.

After Takemichi makes his first alterations to the past, Naoto grows up to become a police Lieutenant and learns of Takemichi’s power to travel back in time, which is done when the two of them shake hands in either the past or the present.
With this, the two work together to help save Hinata from dying. Despite his righteous and dutiful personality, Naoto still manages to have a bit of humour in him. He is also very intelligent, being able to construct a plan for himself and Takemichi to be able to prevent the events that lead to the death of Hinata in the present.

Events prior to the start of the show have given Kazutora severe PTSD and caused him to have a falling out with the other members of the Tokyo Maji gang. This has caused him to become erratic as he tries to mentally reconcile with his past actions.
Tetta Kisaki is the series’ major antagonist of the series, despite becoming a member of the Tokyo Manji Gang. Kisaki is a manipulative and cunning individual who will go to great lengths to achieve his goals. He is shown to have a deep hatred for the Tokyo Manji Gang and is responsible for many of the conflicts and tragedies that occur throughout the series.
