"Will you still choose to believe in Gray-dono!?"

Goumon to Team Natsu in "Code Blue"

Goumon (豪門, ゴウモン, Gōmon) is a member of the Black Magic cult, Avatar.

AppearanceEdit

Goumon is a tall, older gentleman with very prominent, bushy eyebrows and a thick goatee. He is bald and wears a dark blue robe decorated with various symbols and tied with a white sash. He also keeps a straw-hat draped on his shoulder.[1][2] Goumon has commented that he dresses the way he does in honor of Zeref, who he is attempting to cosplay; the kanji tattooed to his forehead were also put there because he believed they were read as "Zeref", despite this being incorrect.[3] According to Lucy the kanji really says "matcha".

PersonalityEdit

Goumon is a seemingly quirky individual, and has an unusual habit of randomly saying "tea." He also appears to care for his comrades, and was visibly upset when he found his fellow Avatar member, Abel, defeated.[4] He has a habit of bowing respectfully, even if there is nobody present to receive the gesture.[5]

SynopsisEdit

Avatar arcEdit

Goumon's Tools of Punishment

Goumon engaging the intruders

During an Avatar meeting, Goumon sits at a round table with his comrades, and listens as Arlock chants to them that the time of Avatar has come.[6] When the members of Avatar meet later to discuss the spy within their midst, Goumon asserts that the council being aware of their purification plan is a problem, and is teased by Mary for making a lame joke. Goumon listens with the rest of his comrades when Gray Fullbuster reveals that he is using Avatar to get a hold of the Book of E.N.D.[7]

Later, when Goumon realizes that there are intruders in Avatar's headquarters, he rushes to their location. Upon arrival, he discovers Abel lying on the ground after being defeated by Natsu Dragneel. He attempts to engage Natsu in combat, but is swiftly downed.[4] However, he rises once more and catches Natsu off-guard as the Dragon Slayer converses with Gray, trapping Natsu in sealing stone manacles and assisting in capturing the group.[8]

After Natsu, Lucy and Happy have been transferred to a cell for holding, Goumon visits to extract information from them with the use of his torture devices. Natsu demands to see Gray, but Goumon tells them that Gray is with the rest of the cult, preparing their purification ritual; he then asks Natsu to reveal the group that sent them to infiltrate their headquarters, though Natsu, truthfully, replies that they came on their on accord for Gray. Not believing the Dragon Slayer, Goumon prepares to subject Lucy to torture via a goat licking her feet, though soon becomes angry at Natsu's yelling and decides to just cut her in half instead. However, before he can, he is frozen solid by Gray, who comes to the duo's rescue.[9] He is then tied on his triangular wood dragon and left naked in the dungeon until Gajeel finds him, with Goumon later being imprisoned.[10]
