I think he still kind of those crack though, just because of all the stuff he’s been through and having to let Makoto go. Overall the story in Yakuza 0 is great and quite detailed. He even says something to the effect of “You want me to be your clown? BronsonLee it me Member. Yes he hears about Kiryu but they never have any real interaction in 0. I actually just finished Yakuza 0 a couple days ago, and initially I was a bit taken aback by how jarring the change was. He’s stuck in the Yakuza world waiting for that confrontation with his sworn brother, and can’t have a life with Makoto.

Did they just make him became insane because that is where he had to be heading into the next game? Majima clearly drops the act for a bit even at the ending of Yakuza 0 after he’s already snapped. With later games he kajima more of a fan favourite and has a bit more development, showing a respect for Kiryu and in turn being respected by Kiryu.

Majima is a bit of a chameleon, which is especially evident in Yakuza 5 or at manima that’s where I feel like his various personas really get a lot of play.

I can see where you are coming from. In Yakuza 0 when he has his transformations that’s maijma years after the final fights in Yakuza 0 or is that right after?


Oct 27, 2, He also becomes pretty much a good guy and through back stories and other moments, is hinted to have good in him. He basically, as he says at one point, feels like a clown.

Devs even said they would love to fill those years with a new game so they may be saving that for later. Introducing Image Options for ResetEra 2. This is just me assessing Yakuza 0 after the fact. From the end battles in Yakuza 0 to where he cuts his hair and completely changes is 5 years? The little speech that Sera gave him didn’t really leave too heavy a mark on him, either.

I’ve only played Yakuza 0 and Yakuza 1 Kiwami in that order and pretty much everything about that series confuses me in a metal gear solid kinda way, so I’m with ya OP it was super jarring going into 1 after 0 but whatever I just roll with it.

Overall the story in Yakuza 0 is great and quite detailed.

That final Y0 scene is either a flash-way-forward, or it’s meant to just be symbolic of their future relationship. Meeting Nishitani, not wanting to be a lapdog, and becoming a more hardened veteran criminal led to the person we know in the rest of the series. It also fits a theme of the game. It’s also worth noting that Majima was pretty underdeveloped in Yakuza 1, compared to the later games.

To be honest, I’ve played a bunch of Yakuza games and I also thought Majima’s transformation wasn’t handled as well as it could’ve been at the end of Yakuza 0. Arguably, he could be hiding his pain behind that mask too.


It didn’t really feel like Majima had a slow descent of madness so much majimw he was a normal guy who got heaped with enough shit on his shoulders that by the end he consciously snapped and decided he wasn’t going to let it happen ever again. His fighting styles are flashy and unconventional, and some of his Heat Actions hint at how much of a kick he gets out of slamming dudes into the pavement.

It’s just not a cracking into insanity.

But part of that probably comes from the ridiculous Majima Everywhere system that I hear wasn’t in the original? Yes he hears about Kiryu but they never have any real interaction in 0. Hes just pretending to be crazy. Oct 25, Something I hope Kiwami 2 goes more into. Oct 25, 2, California.

Like, it’s still rough, but the writers did a fairly admirable job putting together that moment. Jan 25, 1, Man running those nightclubs in 0 was awesome though I hope they bring that back in 6. It’s probably safe to assume that as more Kiwami’s get made, his character arc across the series timeline will be less jarring when juxtaposed with his depiction in 0.
