- Dog Master Galf (狗法眼ガルフ Kuhōgan Garufu )
- A pointy-nosed bandit lord who rules over Medicine City. He values his own pet dogs more than human life, as proven when he tortured Mamiya after she killed one of his guard-dogs whilst trying retrieve medicine for the dying Rei. However, Kenshiro & Rei arrived on the scene to save Mamiya, and after Galf met his end at the hands of Kenshiro, even his beloved dog Seki abandoned him.
- Galf makes a cameo in the 1986 movie. He leads a rally for Ken-Oh's procession and crushes the skull of one villager with his bare hand for chanting out of sync. This scene was censored from most versions of the film due to its graphic nature and only restored on the Italian VHS copy.
- Galf's personality is based off of the "Dog Shogun" Tokugawa Tsunayoshi.
