Joe / Junk Dog Voiced by: Yoshimasa Hosoya Junk Dog (ジャンクドッグ, Janku Doggu) is an underground Megalo Boxer from the outskirts of town whose real name is unknown, he is forced to throw fights to earn money for his crooked manager. He initially fights with old Gear that is constantly in need of repair. He takes on the name “Joe” (ジョー, Jō) when he has a Citizen ID forged in order to enter the Megalonia tournament. He later takes on the ring name “Gearless” Joe (ギアレスジョー, Giaresu Jō) as part of a gimmick to rise in the rankings quickly, fighting without Gear against Gear-equipped opponents. His counterpart in the original Ashita no Joe is Joe Yabuki. Gansaku Nanbu Voiced by: Shiro Saito Gansaku Nanbu (南部贋作, Nanbu Gansaku) is Junk Dog's manager, coach and a gambler with a drinking problem who keeps making him throw fights, even though deep down he believes in Junk Dog's abilities. His counterpart in the original Ashita no Joe is Danpei Tange. Yūri Voiced by: Hiroki Yasumoto Yūri (勇利) is Yukiko's bodyguard and the Megalo Boxing champion. He seeks out Junk Dog after the latter insults his owner, meeting him in the underground ring he easily defeats him before telling him to work his way up in Megalonia if he wants to fight him again. Yūri is equipped with a unique prototype “integrated” Gear, which is surgically grafted directly to his arms. His counterpart in the original Ashita no Joe is Tōru Rikiishi. Yukiko Shirato Voiced by: Nanako Mori Yukiko Shirato (白都ゆき子, Shirato Yukiko) is the head of the Shirato Group who oversees the Megalonia tournament. Her counterpart in the original Ashita no Joe is Yōko Shiraki. Sachio Voiced by: Michiyo Murase Sachio (サチオ) is a young boy from the impoverished Restricted Area who is talented with using and fixing machinery, which he and his friends often use to steal goods which they exchange for “Red Candy”, a type of drug. His counterpart in the original Ashita no Joe is the neighborhood children that Joe Yabuki was friends with, particularly based on Sachi and Kinoko. Fujimaki Voiced by: Hiroyuki Kinoshita Fujimaki (藤巻) is a mob boss that sets up fixed fights for Junk Dog and Nanbu. He assists the duo in acquiring a forged Citizen ID so they can enter Megalonia and pay him back with the prize money after Junk Dog refuses to throw a fight. His counterpart in the original Ashita no Joe is Goromaki Gondō. Tatsumi Leonard Aragaki Voiced by: Makoto Tamura Tatsumi Leonard Aragaki (タツミ・レナード・アラガキ, Tatsumi Renādo Aragaki) is Nanbu's former student. He was called up for military service a few years before the start of the story, during his time as a soldier he was directly hit by an explosion which cost him his legs and burned half his face off. When he returned home he started to suffer from PTSD which led him to attempt suicide and he also felt abandoned by Nanbu after finding that he had closed down his gym when he thought Aragaki had died. He makes his return to Megalo Boxing 3 years before the start of the story and fights his way up to rank 17, when he hears that Nanbu has a new popular Megalo Boxer named Joe he vows to destroy him so that Nanbu can feel his pain, but he also wants to earn money from sponsors so that he can repay everyone from the veteran's association for giving him his life back.

Mikio is arrogant, egotistical, and smug, believing “stray dogs” like Joe are not worthy of standing in the same ring as himself. Mikio was passed over for becoming the head of the Shirato Group in favor of his sister, a fact that causes him to hold a grudge against her.
