|Manga Debut:||Chapter 68|
Yoshioka (吉岡, Yoshioka; "Yoshioka") is the captain of the 2nd squad of Katahara Metsudo's Bodyguards.
Yoshioka is characterized by his long hair, which he usually puts up in a ponytail, and an eyepatch over his left eye, which he lost in a fight against Kanoh Agito.
Yoshioka worked as an assassin prior to challenging Kanoh Agito for the position of the Fang of Metsudo and losing. Since his loss, he has considerably mellowed out, acting polite, gentlemanly, and hospitable. He excels at not only fighting, but also all manner of housework.
During the gap day between the first and second rounds of the tournament, Yoshioka is assigned to guard Yamashita Kazuo and his team, who were moved to a villa on Nogi Hideki's orders in order to avoid having his fighter poached. He was the only one of the captains to be assigned such duty. During the day, Tokita Ohma enlisted Yoshioka's aid as a sparring partner, having him use a whip and spear against Ohma's bare hands. After Ohma effortlessly countered Yoshioka's weapons, Yoshioka got caught up in the heat of battle for the first time since he fought Kanoh Agito, and attacked Ohma bare-handed. He then related his defeat at Kanoh's hands to Ohma, and expressed his admiration towards Ohma for surviving an encounter with the Fang without losing his drive to fight.
Power & AbilitiesEdit
Though he claims the contrary, Yoshioka is a master of all kinds of weapons, as well as hand-to-hand combat. He was presumably more powerful before his defeat by Kanoh Agito, but Ohma remarked that he could make it in the Kengan Annihilation Tournament.
