Not to be confused with Gōda.

Godai (五代, ごだい?), full name Godai Susumu (五代奨, ごだい すすむ?), is the strongest delinquent of Tanibana High School in the Kunio-kun franchise.

Godai is described as a force to be reckoned with since he has the tendency to lose his temper. He also enjoys fighting and is known for his bōjutsu fighting skills. Godai is a close friend of Gōda, whose sense of justice he admires. In his artwork, he always sports a big smile with clenching teeth whereas his in-game sprites doesn't possibly due to sprite limitations. It's possible that Godai's constant, seemingly forced and strained smile is an attempt on his part to keep his volatile temper in check.

Godai is a recurring character in the Downtown Nekketsu series. His popularity both with fans and the staff led him to cross over to games outside of this series, mainly Ike Ike! Nekketsu Hockey Bu: Subette Koronde Dairantō and Nekketsu! Street Basket: Ganbare Dunk Heroes.

AppearancesEdit

River City GirlsEdit

Godai is introduced as a neighbor and childhood acquaintance to Kyōko and Misako, though the two are repulsed by his weirdness. Godai is also infamous for having been expelled from school due to taking stolen shots of the Girls' Volleyball Team, a fact that he neither confirms nor denies.

Nonetheless, he prides himself with being able to keep tabs on anything and anyone around River City, and offers his assistance to the two in exchange for doing him some favors, ranging from a burger fetch quest up to a beat down on yakuza traitors. Rewards are given in the form of EXP and money, some of which can be increased if the Pepper Spray obtained from River City High is equipped.

After that first encounter in Crosstown, Godai will always emerge from one specific dumpster in subsequent areas and briefs the girls on what he needs done there.

Localized versionsEdit

  • In River City Ransom (the American localization of Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari), Godai is known as Tex. He also has this name in River City: Tokyo Rumble.
  • In Crash 'n the Boys: Street Challenge, Godai was renamed Clinton "Clint" Swanson, a member of Team Jefferson High School.

TriviaEdit

  • In River City Ransom: Underground, Tex's full name is listed as Tex Swanson, effectively combining his two localized names. The same was done with Rocko, but oddly enough, the other characters use their Japanese surnames (with the exception of Alex, who instead has the Japanese honorific kun has his surname).
  • Godai has a height of 180 cm.
