• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A 2012 videogame. The fifth installment of the Ryu ga Gotoku series.

After the events of Yakuza 4, series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu has left his old life as criminal behind to work as a taxi driver under the alias Taichi Suzuki. However, one day, while doing his work, he ends up meeting Daigo Dojima, the leader of Kiryu's old yakuza organization, the Tojo Clan. Kiryu drives for him despite his reluctance to talk with someone on his old life, yet the conversation ends peacefully and nothing seems to happen because of it.

However, soon after Kiryu is found by two members of the Tojo Clan that inform him that Dojima has disappeared and Kiryu is the main suspect. With a possible gang war on the horizon because of Dojima's disappearance, Kiryu reluctantly investigates exactly who is behind Dojima's disappearance and why they did it.

Developed by Sega CS1. Published by Sega.

Tropes used in Yakuza 5 include:
  • Arrogant Kung Fu Guy: Sosuke is very proud of his abilities and trashes Kiryu at every opportunity.
  • Badass Driver: Kiryu ends up involving himself in a plot involving a street racing gang. Cue racing mini-game. And yes, Kiryu outraces them using a taxi.
  • Bishounen: Sosuke is as good-looking as he is arrogant. He is nearly unbearable.
  • Brains and Brawn: Aizawa has the bigger frame and is hot-blooded, while Morinaga is more reflexive and smaller.
  • Blood Knight: Watase is more interested in fighting than anything else, to the point it's scary. The fact people will die on the conflicts he will cause is of no importance to him, what disgusts Kiryu.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Kiryu can do some crazy maneuvers during the racing mini-game that could easily get him killed.
  • Dual Boss: Kiryu fights both Morinaga and Aizawa when he refuses to help them in searching for Dojima.
  • Ignore the Fanservice: Well justified. Kiryu has a hell of most important things to do than doing "things" with Mayumi by the time she gets topless in front of him.
  • Living Legend: Watase is interested in creating a gang war as long the Dragon of Dojima, that is, Kiryu, will be his opponent. That already says a lot about Kiryu's status.
  • Those Two Guys: Morinaga and Aizawa are always seen together.
