Devilman Wiki

Tetsuya was a member of Dosu-Roku and Masa's gang, and appeared in the original Devilman manga. He joined forces with Akira Fudo along with the other thugs after the boy saved them from the demon Rasber.


Tetsuya was one of the tallest members of the gang. He was well built with a muscular body. He had a gaunt, sunken in face, across it was a long scar tracking from beneath his eye to the bottom of his face. He had scruffy dark hair that hung low.


Tetsuya possessed no special powers, however he was a keen and very strong fighter, normally using razor blades held between his fists in combat.


Tetsuya came across as somewhat gruff and cold, due to his rugged appearance and associates, but was loyal to his friends and willing to fight for them if called upon.


Tetsuya is first seen alongside his gang, confronting Akira Fudo late one day at the end of school, intending to avenge the beating Dosu-Roku had received at Fudo's hands a few days prior. The group unwisely challenges him to a fight, with all ignoring Dosu-Roku's pleas of peace, only to end up beaten down and bruised by Fudo only moments later, with Tetsuya sprawled and hanging over the fence.

After recovering shortly after, the boys lick their wounds before they are unexpectedly confronted by a strange girl, who offers them a chance to beat him. Then, without waiting for a answer, dozens of horrific spiders burst from the girls skin, tearing her to pieces, and attach themselves to the gang.

The group, now possessed, confront Akira and Miki Makimura in a classroom and attack. Doing his best not to hurt them, Akira takes out the spiders controlling them, destroying Tetsuya's after crushing it with Manjiro's chain. After wiping the blood from his head Akira tells them that they had been possessed. Grateful for being saved, Tetsuya and the others team up with Akira, vowing to help him in his battle against the demon race. 

The group departs from the school in good spirits, however as they leave the find them self surrounded by the schools various sports teams, all possessed by the cruel spiders. They battle, doing their best not to badly harm the students, as Akira hunts down the mastermind, identifying it as the sentient web demon Rasber. Akira kills the demon, and the other students are freed from their control. 


  • Tetsuya never appears in the two OVA films by Umanosuke Iida, however the version of Masa Bokuto seen in them bears facial scarring similar to Tetsuya.
