Silver Dragon Banner


Welcome to Silver Dragon! This is a Kiryu Kazuma character study site. It features the comparison of Yakuza's leading dragon versus the Epic Hero Monomyth. This study is meant to dive into Kazuma's character as a protagonist and analyze his journey and those around him. This site does not prove that Kazuma is or is not an epic hero. It merely relates his journey based on a formula proposed by Joseph Campbell.

This site contains spoilers for Yakuza, Yakuza 2, Yakuza 3, and Yakuza 4 and are unmarked with the exception of this warning.


This site is dedicated to my beloved Raine. She turned me to Yakuza and I wanted to do something that showed how much I adored not only the game, but the lead Kazuma. Thanks dearest! I hope you enjoy it!
