First appeared: Ep 1    ¦    Last appeared: Ep 133
Takeshi is the owner of the castle. To protect it from Tani's attacks, he sets up games in the castle grounds in an attempt to stop the army of contestants getting any closer. Contestants have to beat him in the final 'Show Down' to win.

Takeshi wasn't able to appear on the show from episode 31 to episode 55, so instead the Takeshi Doll took his place.
