Izou Motobe (本部 以蔵, Motobe Izō) is a fictional character from anime and manga series of Baki the Grappler.

PersonalityEdit

Motobe Izou is an old Japanese Jujitsu master. He often watches fights and offers insight on unusual techniques being used.

He seems to have more of an obsession with defeating Yujiro Hanma than most martial artists but he has never shown to be a match for him.

AppearanceEdit

HistoryEdit

Baki the GrapplerEdit

Maximum Tournament SagaEdit

After he is defeated by Kinryuuzan, the Yokozuna, at the Maximum Tournament, he acts as a pseudo ringside commentator during most of the tournament. During this time it appears Katou Kyosumi and Baki Hanma also commentate alongside him pointing out different techniques wondering how they work and even guessing at the other fighters intentions with specific techniques.

BakiEdit

Most Evil Death Row Convicts SagaEdit

After the tournament, Motobe begins to use kenjitsu and later teams up with Goki Shibukawa to fight the convict Yanagi Ryuukou.

AbilitiesEdit

While Motobe is, by the beginning of Baki Dou, considered by almost all the main characters to be one of the weakest fighter among them, he quickly demonstrates that his skill as a warrior ranks him near the top. He easily bests Baki in a one on one, though he says that if he had struck with intent to kill Baki would have reacted more quickly. He also manages to escape from Yujiro, the latter in a flying rage.
