The main Yakuza games until Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, Yakuza: Dead Souls, and the Yakuza films Like a Dragon Prologue and Like a Dragon, focused on a former Yakuza named Kazama Kiryu, the Dragon of Dojima. Kiryu took the blame for a murder that he didn't commit, and became the sixth chairman of the Yakuza's Tojo Clan until he left to raise the daughter of his only love, who was murdered by her ex-husband, a crooked politician.

Other playable characters include:

Beginning with Like a Dragon Online, the main series protagonist is Ichiban Kasuga, a low-level Yakuza who was abandoned at birth and raised in the streets of Tokyo.
