Another Space Karate master, and closest thing to the WorthyOpponent that Alita ever really had. Almost as skilled as Zekka (in fact, his master was Zekka's rival in the past), he's somehow managed to remain a WideEyedIdealist who thinks that karate is a key that opens all the doors and answers all questions -- and he wants to create a "Karate planet" where he would welcome everybody who thinks the same -- and those who need their protection. Also, despite the listing order and Zekka's general flamboyantness, it is Toji who's actually the Space Karate team captain.
