Ganbare Goemon Wiki

Shogun McGuiness (奇天烈将軍マッギネス Kiteretsu Shōgun Magginesu?) is the main antagonist and final boss in Ganbare Goemon 2: Kiteretsu Shōgun Magginesu. He is the leader of the Marble 5, a group of evil bunny men.


McGuiness is a crazy former missionary obsessed with rabbits and Japan. His underlings, the Marble 5, are scientists he brainwashed by giving them candies.

He invades Japan and orders each of his five trusted henchmen to guard a different castle, where they await with a new monster or robot to stop Goemon, Ebisumaru and Sasuke from reaching McGuiness's flying fortress, with one of them kidnapping Omitsu.

Appearance and personality

Unlike other characters from the Ganbare Goemon series, McGuiness apparently comes from a foreign land, which according to his physical traits could be somewhere from western medieval Europe. He is blond, has blue eyes and bears a mustache, traits not usually seen on other characters from the series. He is also balding, and holds what little hair he has left in a traditional chonmage to give him an appearance similar to that of a feudal lord.

He is obsessed with Japanese culture and rabbits, and as such he dresses in exaggerated traditional Japanese attire with rabbits imagery on his shoulder and knee pads. He wears a pair of geta and can usually be seen holding a bamboo sword in one hand and a backscratcher on the other.

Of interest is a long scar that goes across his face through his left eye's area; and even yet more peculiar is an orange he has tied around his neck.
