Eikichi Onizuka's best friend since middle school with a past as co-founder of the Oni-Baku of Shonan. Now, Ryuji continues his passion for bikes with his job as a mechanic, opening his own workshop.
Even now, Ryuji still gets involved in Eikichi's adventures.
He's the mature one of the two and often gives Eikichi some good advice.
When he was part of the well known Oni-Baku (Oni, meaning demon, comes from Onizuka - Baku, meaning bomb, comes from Danma, which means explosion). They were 16-year-olds and used to fight gangs that vastly outnumbered them; although, thanks to their abnormal strength and uncommon charisma, the two slowly become legends. Ryuji is notable for being one of the few fighters capable of matching Onizuka in strength and skill.
- More about him can be read in Bad Company, a prequel to GTO, where he is the main character.
