He appears as the main antagonist along with Benny Haha in the Versus season. In the Versus Revolution season, he seems to had became an ally of Katta to find a way to escape and undercover the secrets of the underground city in Duel Masters Land. However, he was revealed to be working for the Duema Land President in secret after his escape.
An ominous man who wears a white mask in order to obscure his face, a long sleeve yellow and white sweater and a pair of Jester-like shoes. His body, arms and legs are very long. He talks in a Kyoto accent and laughs "GyoGyoGyoGyo". He has bandages hidden inside his sleeves. His face was never seen but on several occasions, his mouth was seen under his mask.
When he undergoes metamorphosis, he removes his mask and becomes a monstrous giant. He becomes more muscular and his shirt is partially ripped off. He has blue, red and white face paint on his face and his hairstyle changes. He also talks in a different voice. His mask may very likely is a seal to his monstrous form.
After his defeat by Katta, with Shobu indirectly ending their plans and his defeat by Basara, his personality changed for the better and he was willing to settle things in a fair duel. He was also a bit perverted when he got excited over Hamukatsu making a ruckus in the girl's section of the hot springs. However, he seems to actually be a spy working for Duel Masters Land, proven when he attempts to sabotage Katta and Shobu's training and sending the photo of the ancient record of the 2 dragons to Duema Land President.
He is a very unscrupulous duelist that will use whatever means to gain victory, including attempts to kill and cheat duelists. He is also unusually good at acting, maintaining no hints that he is about to betray until the last moment in VSR. However possibly due to the repeated duels, before his final defeat he did show some competitive spirit, and when asked by Waramaki that if he enjoyed that duel, he repsonded with a smile, which means that he might had been enjoyed dueling.
Despite his personality, he is a pretty powerful duelist that can enter the duel masters koshien for Kyoto.
Duel Masters Versus
He made his first appearance in episode 26 in an ancient tomb in the city of Kyoto.
When Katta Kirifuda, Lulu Takigawa and Hamukatsu explored the tomb, he comes out of the stone coffin and scaring all 3 of them at once. He strikes Lulu by using his bandages as she was wearing the pouch necklace that contains the 3D Dragheart card Lucifer gave to her. Katta intercepted his attention due to this action and in return he tied both Katta and Hamukatsu up on top of the pole leaving Lulu with no choice but to fight, with her Javeleon, Beast Lance / Leosaiyu, Beast Cathedral / Leo the World, Zenith Heavenly Saint at stake.
During the duel he demonstrated the hidden powers and abilities of 2D and 3D Dragsolution, shocking Lulu and Katta. Lulu managed to use her own 2D and 3D Dragsolution to turn the tables of the duel, however, he uses his Dragheart Creature Verokiboaros, Ga Ga Ga to win the duel and took Lulu's card away.
He sensed Lucifer's Batorai Edge, Blazing Sword / Batorai Keep, Blazing Castle / Batorai Bushin, Blazing Deluxe and swing all the way to get it, leaving Katta and Hamukatsu enraged. He attempted to do the same thing to Lucifer to get the card, however, Lucifer sliced all the bandages away by using a blue rose and left by helicopter, in which he instructed Yohdel and Justice to give it to Katta. He returned to get the card from Katta and kidnapped Bucyake, Yohdel and Justice, forcing him to duel in order to free them.
Before the duel he attached parasites to Katta that poisoned him and give him a hard time. Hamukatsu managed to give Katta curry bun as an antidote. He was eventually defeated by Katta's Gaiglen, Violent Dragon Incident as his shield triggers are not enough to avoid a direct attack. He escapes after Katta got Lulu's card back and told them that it was not over before he left.
In episode 34 he was revealed to be one of the finalist of the Duel Masters National Tournament. He watches the interview of Katta and Hokaben live on his mobile in the city of Kyoto at the same spot where he dueled Katta. His first opponent in the nationals is Hokaben.
In the fourth rounds of the finals, he dueled Hokaben. He consumed a mysterious capsule,which transforms him into a scary giant, surprising Hokaben and the whole audience. He summons his new trump cards, The=Deadman, Dragon Edge and Niga=Vermut, Evil King. Using their ability to manipulate the mana zone, he drove Hokaben in fear. However, his metro-morph only lasted for a short time and he returns to normal. Gyou then brutally defeated and injures Hokaben, leaving Katta enraged and the audience displeased and angry.
In episode 40,he was shown to be with Benny Haha,devising on their plan to disable Lucifer and the other finalist of the national tournament; Katta and Kojiro. He kidnaps Yohdel, Justice and Helen in order to draw Lucifer's attention and dueled him in the botanical garden greenhouse. He gave Lucifer a hard time due to his tactics and Benny Haha's work of adjusting the temperature of the greenhouse to an uncomfortable level. Unfortunately for him, Katta and his friends arrived to save Lucifer and the others and was defeated by Lucifer's renewed dueling spirit.He escapes afterwards, leaving Katta and the others enraged.
It was revealed that Gyou poisoned Lucifer, like what he did to Katta before under Benny Haha's plan to disable the other finalists. In episode 42, he and Benny Haha devised on their further plans to deal with Katta. They first knocked down the security guards in the surveillance room to see Katta working on his deck. During the duel,it was revealed that Gyou had taken Lucifer's trump cards and used them in the duel. He even provoked Katta in order to intimidate him. But this fuels Katta's resolve instead and most of his creatures were removed from the field by Katta's Super Explosive Duel Fire. Gyou blocked Katta's attempt to Dragsolution Gaiheart, Galaxy Sword with The=Deadbrachio, World Evil Dragonkind but got defeated by Katta's MaltNEXT, Super Battle Dragon Edge. His and Benny Haha's villainous plans were put to an end due to Katta's brother, Shobu Kirifuda's intervention to the situation. He was not seen ever since his defeat.
Duel Masters Versus Revolution
Before the season, like Katta, he was defeated by Basara and had fallen to the underground city of Duel Masters Land. He first appears in the room together with Katta and Katta asked for a duel to settle things from what happened last time. When Gyou gains an upper hand, he told Katta on what happened to him and encourages him to get back up to the game. After he was defeated by Katta, they both met Wakamari who warns them about the duelist in charge of the gate out, the connections of the city and the Revolutionary cards.
They found one of the locations of the Revolutionary cards; the hot springs. While relaxing, they decided to peek into the girl's sections and Gyou got excited over Hamukatsu making a ruckus. After Hamukatsu obtained the Flaming Meracchi card and Katta's win against the landlord, they escaped the hot springs before it self-destructs just in time. He then trains with Katta, not knowing that Hakase have another plan in store for them.
After Katta obtained Dogiragon, Flaming Revolution, they rushed to the location where the strongest robot Hakase has programmed, Gachirobo based by the map received in order to save Katta's friends. When Dogiragon breaks his chains upon answering Katta's call, he noted on Katta's ability to awaken the dragon's soul. He was shot out of the underground city after Katta won and received a green Duel Phone for the upcoming Star Cup event. He apologized to Hokaben for his actions in the national tournament and left in good terms with Katta and his team. He returns to Kyoto for the Star Cup event.
At some point, he made a contract with Duema Land President when Katta was conducting training. During the time Shobu shows Katta an ancient record he had found and done research in about Bolshack Dogiragon and its relations to Dogiragon and Bolshack, Gyou took a photo of the record in secret, but Shobu managed to swiftly notice it. When Shobu trains Katta, Gyou contacted Duema Land President about the other Legendary card and attempts to disable their training to prevent them from going forward. However, his plans are foiled by Katta's friends and the second time by Shobu's keen judgment. He then reports his failure to Duema Land President.
As Katta and his friends were enclosing on them, the Duema Land President instructed Gyou to activate their base, turning it into Dueland, Transformation of Dreams. After the president's defeat and reveal that he was actually Benny Haha, Gyou took part in a new ploy in which he pretended he needed Katta's help to save his little sister from getting destroyed by Benny's robot. In actuality the sister was another robot and it was all part of Gyou's desires to get revenge on Katta for defeating him in the tournament from the previous season. Even though he won the duel and Benny's robot fired a missile at him, Duewanko jumped to defend Katta, his suit getting destroyed and revealing him as Lucifer.
Gyou recalls poisoning Lucifer in the previous season and challenges him to a duel in the arena of where the tournament had been held, giving him a hard time just like with Katta due to his trump cards Gyogyou, Revolutionkind and Gyogyoras, Traitorous Revolutionkind. However, his victory had been prevented by Miracle Miradante and his deck got locked down by a Time Stop Duel activated by Miradante, Time Revolution and Miracle Stop. After his defeat, Gyou realized that he is useless and left Benny Haha, and visited the ruins of the Duema Land for one final time. In there, He was asked by Wakamari if he enjoyed the duel, which he responded with a smile.
Unlike in the anime, Gyou is a friendly character in the manga who rescued Katta from being hit by a truck and became his friend. He also calls Katta a saint, and used a Gyogyoras, Traitorous Revolutionkind deck in the Duel Masters National tournament but was defeated by Basara's Dokindam X, The Legendary Forbidden.
