If you were to take DavidLynch, QuentinTarantino and a Luchador and lock them in a room surrounded by Sci-Fi movies, anime and Creator/AndyWarhol paintings, you'd get something quite close to the inside of Goichi Suda's mind.

Goichi Suda, or Suda 51 as he's better known, is one of the most {{Mind Screw}}ing game designers out there. He's the head of Grasshopper Manufacture and is known for making games which create a unique, if slightly/extremely unsettling, experience. He frequently collaborates with music composers MasafumiTakada and AkiraYamaoka.

[[SignatureStyle Common themes]] include assassins, hotels, Mexican wrestling and random pop culture references.

'''Games created by Suda 51 include:'''
[[index]]
* ''Super VideoGame/FireProWrestling Special''
* ''Moonlight Syndrome''
* ''TheSilverCase''
* ''VideoGame/FlowerSunAndRain''
* ''Shining Soul''

'''Licensed games developed by Grasshopper Manufacture include:'''

* ''VideoGame/FatalFrame IV'' (JP: ''Zero: Tsukihami no Kamen'')

'''Games currently being created by Suda 51 include:'''
* ''Diabolical Pitch''
* ''Killer is Dead''

On a side note, his alias comes from his name: "Goichi" is composed of the Japanese numbers for five ("go") and one ("ichi").
----
!!Frequently used tropes are:
* AuthorAppeal: Luchadores. He even occasionally asks for fans to do wrestling moves on certain people.
* BreakingTheFourthWall
* BlackAndGrayMorality
* DeconstructorFleet
* DeliberateValuesDissonance: A common theme in his games is that they examine the differing values between Japan and the West/U.S.
* GainaxEnding
* MaskedLuchador
* MindScrew
* OneTwoThreeFourGo
* RefugeInAudacity
* RuleOfCool
* RuleOfSymbolism / WorldOfSymbolism
