|Appears in||Shenmue I|
Takashi Watanabe (Japanese: 渡邊毅) is a member of the Mad Angels gang that operates at the New Yokosuka Harbour District. He used to be a member of the Garumu motorcycle gang alongside Takahiro Iwami, but after the gang was defeated by the Mad Angels, he was forced to join up with them. Despite not being particularly skilled at it, he spends a lot of time tuning up his bike.
Takashi can be seen one evening with Takahiro at the harbour harassing Shozo Mizuki by chasing him on their motorcycles. When Ryo intervenes they decide to take their aggression out on him instead and Takashi challenges Ryo to a chicken race on their motorcycles. Whilst Takashi tries to kick Ryo off his bike during the race, Takahiro pushes trash in Ryo's path to also try and make him fall off. But in the end Ryo manages to keep his balance and win the race, whilst Takashi falls off the pier into the sea.
