* GeniusCripple: He is usually in a wheelchair. Might be because of his age, but still...



* DirtyOldMonk: Priests are generally not involved in gambling between Yakuza gangs after all. He was also in Hawaii picking up chicks for some time along with several other characters, and takes a piece of [[spoiler:Akagi's tombstone]] hoping it will bring him luck.

[[folder:Main characters]]
!!Takashi Ten

* AnimeHair
* CardSharp
* CheatersNeverProsper: Actually, they do here. Mostly.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Especially early on.
* DecoyProtagonist: He does get a bit overshadowed by Hiroyuki and Akagi.
* {{Polyamory}}: He has two wives.
* ProfessionalGambler: Professional ''[[CardSharp Cheater]]'', more like.
* ScarsAreForever: He got them from letting his opponents beat him up after being caught cheating.

!!Hiroyuki Igawa

* AdventureRebuff
* AlwaysSecondBest: He becomes pretty miserable through most of the series because he considers himself inferior to Ten and Akagi.
* CharacterDevelopment
* TheLancer: To Ten.
* {{Narrator}}

!!Shigeru Akagi

* CoolOldGuy
* [[spoiler:BetterToDieThanBeKilled: Akagi chooses to go through medically-assisted suicide rather than have his mind deteriorate due to Alzheimer's. The fact that he was never afraid to face death makes it easier to digest...the fact that his mind was the greatest weapon he ever had and the fact that he was only in his early fifties doesn't.]]
* [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide]]
* TheGambler: Duh.
* [[spoiler:GoOutWithASmile]]
* GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave: He still has a large amount of fangirls.

* CoolShades
* TheIdiotFromOsaka: To a certain extent. He's young, brash and enthusiastic, even directly challenging Harada- who, despite also being from Osaka, is a much cooler, calmer character and thus accordingly loses his accent as the series progresses.
