Gozaru is the eldest of a Rebillion Tribe who wanted to end the rule of Shougun.
Ginga Densetsu Weed
He fears Yukimura and his troops and tries to avoid them. When the baby monkey, Pepe gets away, Gozaru searches for him and finds him at Yukimura’s den. He tries to convince Yukimura that he is not evil and that he will fight Shougun.
Yukimura does not trust him and his troops throw down Gozaru and attack him. Ishizaru comes to the aid. He escapes and offers Weed hospitality because he had helped Pepe earlier. The next day Gozaru tries to convince an old member of his clan, Tobizaru, to join the rebellion against Shougun.
This turns into a fight and Gozaru is badly wounded. He is left in the forest where Kyoshiro finds him and carries him to Weed. He arrives in time for the final battle and swings a scythe in Shougun's head. Yukimura then carries him away for safety reasons. When he sees the courage of the dogs, he orders his group to attack at full speed.
After Yukimura has wounded Shougun to certain death, Gozaru beats him on the head just to make sure the monster is dead.
