Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist



Mr. Clown is Ryuji Otogi's father. When he first appeared in the manga, his names was given as Mr. Crown, which was a mistake due to confusion between the letters "L" and "R" among Japanese speakers. The manga bunkoban corrected this mistake. In the English Yu-Gi-Oh! Dungeon Dice Monsters video game, he was called Sindin the Clown.

At first, he acted as though a loving father, wanting Ryuji to avenge and succeed him. However, when Ryuji failed, Otogi revealed that Ryuji was born only to avenge him, and that failure means the boy has no more purpose to live.


Otogi originally asked Sugoroku Mutou, a master gamer, to take him in as a disciple. After a while, they challenged each other for the ownership of the Millennium Puzzle in a Shadow Game called the Devil's Board Game, and Otogi, who lost, aged 50 years in a single night as penalty. He desired revenge through his son Ryuji.

After setting up Yugi Mutou and framing for stealing from his shop, Otogi took away Yugi's Millennium Puzzle and locked him up in a secret game room, where Ryuji dueled against Yugi in a game of Dungeon Dice Monsters for the ownership of the Puzzle. Halfway, when things were looking bad for Ryuji, Otogi entered the room, and, using his hatred for Sugoroku as fuel for his strength, he managed to break the Puzzle to pieces, all the while ignoring Yugi's pleas.

When Yugi defeated Ryuji (with the help of Dark Bakura), and that Ryuji admitted that he could not hate Yugi, Otogi showed remorse, and offered to put the Puzzle's necklace chain around Yugi. However, this was all an act, as Otogi immediately tightened the chain around Yugi's neck, threatening to break Yugi's neck unless he complied. Despite Ryuji's protests, Otogi showed immense hatred, and claimed that as Ryuji failed, he is no longer allowed to live. Ignoring his son's further protests, Otogi dragged Yugi into another secret room, and locked the door.

In the secret room, Otogi pinned the Puzzle's chain down to a table, and tried to force Yugi to play the same game that he and Sugoroku played, and to make Yugi age rapidly, as he did. However, when Otogi tried to rebuild the puzzle for himself, he almost got trapped in an illusive maze, and knocked back a candle, setting his shop on fire. He barely escaped thanks to Yugi and his friends' help.
