Goro Majima is a recurring supporting character in the Yakuza series. He appears as a supporting character and boss character in each of Yakuza/Yakuza Kiwami, Yakuza 2/Yakuza Kiwami 2, Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4 and Yakuza 5. He is featured as one of multiple playable protagonists in Yakuza 0 and Yakuza: Dead Souls, and is also the main protagonist and playable character of Yakuza Kiwami 2's Majima Saga. His ferocity in battle earned him the nickname "The Mad Dog of Shimano". He is the patriarch of the Majima Family, president of Majima Construction, chief advisor to the sixth chairman of the Tojo Clan, as well as the former vice-chairman of the Tojo Clan alongside his sworn brother Taiga Saejima. 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. 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. In Yakuza 0, 1, and 2, his eyepatch is blank. From Yakuza 3 onward, his eyepatch is adorned with a silver snake emblem. His hair is cut just above his ears and styled into a side part, with the rest of his head having an undercut. In Yakuza 0, he wears his hair long enough to be pulled into a low ponytail. As of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, his hair is dyed brown. In Yakuza 0, he is clean shaven with a slight moustache growing. After Yakuza 0, he has a full goatee. Majima's tattoo covers his biceps and upper chest, stretching from his neck to the back of his thighs. It consists of a floral motif (similar to Shimano's), with a Hannya on his back and twin snakes wrapped around his arms and chest. The Hannya mask has commonly been used to depict women who have turned into demons as a result of being consumed by sorrow, envy, or rage. Snakes are often associated with rebirth and transformation, due to their tendency to shed their skin. Majima's attire remains mostly the same throughout the series, usually consisting of a yellow boa print snakeskin blazer, a gold chain, black leather pants, a black leather belt with a silver buckle, black leather gloves, and black snakeskin wingtip single monk strap dress shoes that are steel toed. He wears an eyepatch that is plain in Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami, and Yakuza Kiwami 2, but has a white snake design over the eye in games that take place afterwards. In Yakuza 0, he wears a black tuxedo over a white wingtip collar tuxedo dress shirt, with or without his black bow tie and black satin cummerbund, depending on if he is working at the Grand or not. He wears his usual shoes. He is shown wearing a yellow patterned button-up and high-waisted pants prior to the Ueno Seiwa hit and during his marriage to Mirei Park in 1992. At the end of the game, he switches to his usual outfit. In Yakuza Kiwami, Majima's outit is largely the same, though he wears another gold chain in addition to his usual one. His extra gold chain is longer than the other one. This is the only time he wears two gold chains. His various outfits for Majima Everywhere encounters include his tuxedo paired with his bow tie and cummerbund when he is encountered as a bartender at a bar which he uses Breaker style with, the same outfit but paired with a white Hannya mask (missing it's jaw and wearing an eyepatch) in which he is called Hannya-Man and uses Thug style, a police officer's uniform which he uses Slugger style with and calls himself Officer Majima, an idol outfit consisting of silver double breasted satin jacket with matching pants. The jacket has gold buttons, white satin sleeves, and a pink star pattern on the lapel, and a cummerbund covers the bottom of the jacket and also has the pink star pattern. He wears an orange headband with a yellow star pattern and two feathers in it. He wears white boots with the outfit, though when it is worn in Yakuza 0 while performing 24-hour Cinderella, they are white roller skates instead. In this outfit, he is called Everyone's Idol Goro and he uses Breaker Style. He can also take on the moniker of Goromi with a hostess outfit and fight in Thug Style. Sometimes he will wear a taxi driver's outfit and use Mad Dog style, though he does not have a special name for this appearance. He can also assume the title of Zombie Majima, with his usual outfit, though he uses makeup and contact lenses to make him skin pale, blood stains on his chest, face, and mouth, and pale red eyes. He uses Thug Style in this outfit. In Yakuza 3, 4, and Dead Souls, he wears a dark grey suit over a red dress shirt and black tie. He is rarely shown without his black leather gloves or steel-tipped black leather shoes - one of the few instances in later games being in Yakuza 3, during his and Kiryu's arena match. He also begins wearing a black leather eyepatch with a white snake design on it, rather than the plain black one he previously wore. 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. Despite being the patriarch of his own family - and later, lieutenant advisor to the sixth chairman, Daigo Dojima - he dislikes serious meetings and often finds a way to showily barge his way into them. He is shown to have a soft spot for his family members - even if he is prone to physically punishing them for their disobedience. 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, and has nearly died trying to protect that right. In later games, it appears to become somewhat of a running joke between the two rather than a true threat. He respects physical power above all else, and often pesters Kiryu into fighting him to prove himself whenever a favor is asked of him. He commonly reminds others that he has standards to uphold as a yakuza, despite his theatrically unhinged persona, and states that he dislikes dishonorable men, especially ones that intentionally break rules. 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. Occasionally his sense of self preservation will win over his need to do the right thing, and unlike Kiryu, he is not above turning a blind eye to the suffering of others. If there is a chance that something will cause problems for himself or anyone close to him, he will not hesitate to throw others under the bus. His "Mad Dog" act is primarily inspired by three men - three paragons of the "tenacity" that he wishes to embody - that he comes to know in Yakuza 0; Homare Nishitani, a man who lives for the thrill, putting excitement and the pursuit of pleasure above all else, Wen Hai Lee who uses his strength to protect the ones he loves, and Tsukasa Sagawa, who, as Majima says, is "damn near immortal." To Sagawa, he vows to "have more fun and live crazier than any of 'em." 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, as shown by his success with The Grand and Club Sunshine, and later his construction company, Majima Construction. This also leads him to being favored by his superiors, sometimes against his will, as is the case with Tsukasa Sagawa. Majima loves baseball, and considers it a bonding activity, associating it with both Saejima and Kiryu. Nishida calls him sentimental, seeing him mope around before Kiryu plans to leave for Okinawa. He is shown to hold on very closely to the past, and never forgets a promise. He is loyal to a fault - particularly when it comes to Saejima, and later Kiryu - and will put anyone that he cares about above himself.
