Ryokugyu is the alias of an admiral in the Marines. Ryokugyu was briefly mentioned by Doflamingo while talking to Fujitora, calling the two of them "beasts". Ryokugyu's real name and gender are currently unknown.
As Ryokugyu has not appeared in the storyline yet, the full extent of their current appearance is unknown. The only distinguishable feature of the admiral is that he has curly, wavy hair and appears to wear a Marine coat like Borsalino and Issho.
