|“||Naegi, you are exactly like I saw on the live broadcast, aren't you? Even in the School Life of Mutual Killing, you kept believing, and you changed the hearts of many. We need that power for the future. The director said he was glad you came to the Future Foundation, too... That the Future Foundation was going to change! So why are you getting down? Got it, asshole?!||„|

Great Gozu (グレート ゴズ Gurēto Gozu) is a character featured in Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak Academy - Side: Future and a participant in the Final Killing Game. He is a member of Future Foundation and the leader of the 12th Division. His responsibility is to help oversee and assist in the construction of infrastructures such as roadways, communications, and other public facilities. He is also Kazuo Tengan's bodyguard.
During his time at Hope's Peak Academy, his title was Super High School Level Wrestler (超高校級の「レスラー」 chō kōkō kyū no “resurā”).
After it's revealed that Aoi Asahina's death was faked, Great Gozu is shown to have been brainwashed into committing suicide and become the game's second victim in the Final Killing Game and the third victim overall.
He is voiced by Kenta Miyake and Keisuke Ohkubo in the Japanese version, and by Chris Rager in the English version.
Great Gozu is a tall, muscular man in his early thirties, around 30 at youngest.
Despite his gentle nature, he gives off a very intimidating vibe, with his large build and the theme of his wrestling persona — he wears the mask of a cow's head, with piercing red eyes and a scowling appearance. Underneath, he has brown hair and a goatee. He wears a blue tie and a black suit, with the Future Foundation ID pinned to its lapel.
Despite his intimidating appearance, Gozu is gentle in nature and he has a very quiet, polite way of speaking. When in arguments, he is very patient and rarely raises his voice. Gozu has high moral standards and sees things like persecution without a fair trial as dishonorable. He also dislikes needless violence, and readily stops Juzo Sakakura from assaulting Makoto Naegi; he attempts to resolve things quickly, without having to use intimidation tactics, but can resort to that if needed, and threatened Juzo with a fight. He is shown to be very frightening when angry.
Great Gozu respected his comrades greatly and states that he will never doubt his comrades as long as he lives.
