Goto, Hunt

Hunt Goto (とうハント Gotō Hanto) is a character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS anime. He is a fourth-grade student at Goha #2 Elementary, and he is a member of the Dueling and Dinosaur Research Club under Professor Diggs. Due to his ability to reveal valuables by sneezing, he is enlisted by Nail Saionji to aid Yuga and his friends in the Goha #6 Elementary arc, but his inherent greed later leads him to become a minor antagonist.



Full-body view of Hunt Goto

Hunt is a short young boy with grey hair and light brown eyes. He wears stereotypical explorer's clothing; a light tan shirt, khaki pants, a brown belt with a steel buckle, calf-length light tan socks, and brown hiking boots in addition to a green hard hat with a dinosaur face print. He later wears a large brown backpack to carry supplies when rescuing Yuga and his friends from the Mutsuba mine and switches a golden hat in the Team Battle Royal arc.

After becoming wealthy from his sale of Maximum Monsters, Hunt buys extravagant golden clothing and jewelery and dyes his hair blonde. He wears an orange-yellow shirt, and orange fur-lined jacket, yellow fur-lined pants and solid gold shoes with the toes turned up. He also accessorises with a gold Roman-style helmet printed with his hardhat's dinosaur face print, gold rings on each finger, a gold necklace, and a belt with a gold "H" buckle. He switches back to his previous outfit after being defeated by Yuga, though he retains the gold hat, though he later returns to these gaudy clothes in the finale timeskip.


Hunt is the most outwardly eager of his friends, but also the most greedy and duplicitous, as he chuckled over Yuga being foolish enough to tell them where The Relic was. Later, he strip-mined the Mutsuba mine with the assistance of Goha 66 and and sold the Maximum Monsters he had found there, but made sure to only sell one at a time to unsuspecting Duelists so they wouldn't have a complete set, while also using a Maximum designed to counter normal monsters. Once he became wealthy from selling the cards, he became significantly arrogant and viewed himself as above his friends and the ramen store they had once sincerely enjoyed due to his newfound wealth. He tends to panic when any deception of his is discovered, both when his and his friends' plan to exploit Gossie is revealed and when his backpack bursts in the Mutsuba mine, revealing that he had already scavenged Duel Disks for Yuga. He was disappointed when Gossie turned out to be a myth and annoyed that Yuga's Road had been responsible.

Although Hunt was defeated by Yuga, he still valued money above all else and this eventually led him to fight with his friends. Hunt later openly expresses contempt for noble virtues like justice, cynically believing the world has no room for them and seeing nothing wrong with using a Duel Card Manufacturer for immoral purposes.

When Nail Saionji enlisted Hunt's assistance to find the Duel Disk cache in the Mutsuba mine, Hunt proved to be helpful and resourceful. He shows himself to be somewhat humble and embarrassed when his sneezing ability is praised, though he takes issue with Luke's name for it.


Hunt's name seems to be drawn from his unique ability to sneeze in the presence of valuable artifacts. His full name in Japanese order "Goto Hunt" also mimics「ゴッドハンド」("God Hand"), the nickname of archaeologist Shinichi Fujimura, whose discoveries were exposed as forgeries by newspaper Mainichi Shimbun (the inspiration for Hunt's Rush Duel with Scoop Pitman).


According to his friends, Hunt has a unique ability to unearth valuable fossils and other artifacts; sneezing in their presence. Luke terms this "sneezcavation", a name that Hunt himself is not entirely comfortable with. However, this is limited to objects underground; Hunt himself noted that it was useless for finding the "Fusion" cards that were drawn in by the Goha Meteor Shower.


Birth of Rush Duels[edit]

After hearing about the appearance of Gossie in Goha City, Hunt, Kaseki and Diggs decided to search for it and use it to create their own Jurassic Duel World. After stopping at the Ramen Hut, they encountered Yuga Ohdo, Lucidien "Luke" Kallister, Romin Kassidy and Gavin Sogetsu, who were also looking for Gossie using Yuga's modified Goha Enterprises Drone Kaizo. Kaseki introduced the Dueling and Dinosaur Research Club to Yuga and his friends, and Hunt was pleased to meet the creator of Rush Dueling. Kaseki suggested that they work together to find Gossie, though in reality they planned to use Yuga and his friends to find Gossie and then find it first themselves. After several fruitless stops, Yuga's friends finally determined that Gossie could be at the location of the Relic where Yuga had installed Rush Duels, though Luke left them before they headed to it. Hunt, Kaseki and Diggs reconvened in a bathroom to discuss their plans, unaware that Luke was in the same bathroom, and he confronted them and revealed their plans to Yuga, Gavin and Romin. Despite the group's treachery, Yuga was still willing to tell them where the Relic was if Diggs could defeat him in a Rush Duel. During the Duel, Yuga stated that he didn't believe Diggs to be someone who would exploit dinosaurs, and Hunt suggested they check the construction site where Gossie was rumored to have first appeared, but Yuga abruptly tried to stop them from looking, though Luke eagerly joined forces with the Dueling and Dinosaur Research Club. Yuga defeated Diggs, but the group decided to check the construction site anyway, only to learn that "Gossie" had been nothing more than heating pipes and a noise produced by one of Yuga's "Roads", much to Hunt's anger. To make it up to them, Yuga brought the Dueling and Dinosaur Research Club to where the Relic had been, and Hunt sneezed, uncovering seven previously unseen symbols carved in the floor.[1] Yuga had Hunt and his friends help him analyze the symbols, and they deduced from them overlapping that they formed the logo of Big Seven Arena. Yuga theorized that the Relic would appear there on the next full moon, and he was invited to the location for a RoaRomin concert.[2]

The Relic appeared at the Big Seven Arena as Yuga had predicted, during his Duel with Roa Kassidy, and Hunt, Kaseki, and Diggs immediately entered the room to examine the Relic, though they retreated into the audience when it began to project Otes. Otes explained he had chosen Yuga to become the King of Duels at the 666th Goha Dueling Tournament and cleared up the legality of "Sevens Road Magician", which he had given to Yuga at the event and whose legality had been in question due to Roa's actions. Yuga and Roa continued their Duel with the right to the title on the line, and Roa pushed Yuga into a corner, but Yuga was able to defeat Roa, and the Relic retreated into the ground after the Duel.[2]


Some time after Yuga and Roa's Duel, Hunt received a penalty on his Duel Disk while he was at a dig with Diggs and Kaseki.[3] They went to the Road Laboratory, where Yuga explained that they and all his other friends had been penalized due to his challenge by Goha Duel Overseer Nail Saionji to retrieve the data of Kaizo, and if anyone in Yuga's group of friends lost a Duel, they would all be penalized and their accounts deleted if they received six penalties. The penalty had occurred when Mimi Imimi was defeated by her son Yosh, as Mimi had inadvertently become considered one of Yuga's friends. Despite the circumstances, everyone present agreed to help Yuga, given that all of their accounts were on the line, but then Yuga, Luke and Gavin were dropped into a pit leading to the Garden of Curiosity, with Romin and Saburamen also falling in.[4]

Hunt later received four more penalties on his Duel Disk.[5] Hunt was at a dig with Diggs and Kaseki when they watched Yuga and Nail's Maximum Monsters, "Supreme Machine Magnum Overlord" and "Yggdrago the Sky Emperor" battling, calling the clash an earth-shattering Jurassic. After being forced to return his Maximum to his Deck, Yuga was pushed into a corner and reminded of the stakes of the match, which reminded Hunt that his account would be deleted if Yuga lost the Rush Duel due to his five penalties. He was overjoyed when Yuga was able to re-Maximum Summon "Magnum Overlord" again and when Yuga defeated Nail, who erased the penalties on Hunt's Duel Disk after the Rush Duel.[6]

Goha #6 Elementary[edit]

Hunt, Diggs and Kaseki came to the Rush Duel Training Camp with Saburamen, Sushiko, Nick, and the Dueling Insects Club from Goha #5 Elementary. That night Yuga told them about his encounter with Asana Mutsuba, who Diggs deduced was likely from Goha #6 Elementary's Heavy Cavalry Duel Club, and Hunt and Kaseki told Yuga, Luke and Gavin about their previous issues with them. They were then interrupted by Romin and Sushiko fighting over the remote, and Hunt, Kaseki and Diggs wisely sidled away until the matter was over, but they returned when Nick had finished cooking.[7] They left the cabin on the second day of the camp.[8]

Hunt was later contacted by Nail, who asked him to go with Kaizo to help Yuga find a cache of prototype Duel Disks hidden in a mine on the outskirts of Goha City. Hunt and Kaizo found Yuga, Romin, Luke, Gavin, and Rayne and Rino just as Romin was about to drink from a puddle in the mine, and Hunt urgently stopped her, explaining that mine water sometimes contained toxic substances. Romin was quite thankful to Hunt for saving them, as he had brought water with him for them and after Kaizo played Nail's message that explained he hadn't provided Asana with her Maximum Monsters, Hunt sniffed around the mineshaft and eventually sneezed, opening an entrance into an underground hallway.[9] Luke praised Hunt's sneezing ability as they moved through the tunnels, eventually arriving at the Heavy Cavalry Colosseum where Chevelle Kayama, Trapigeon and Galian Townsend of the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club were waiting for them. Galian challenged them to a Duel to prevent them passing, but passed out from exhaustion and Rayne took his place, Dueling Rino, who ended their Duel in a DRAW.[10] As there had been no victor, Chevelle insisted on another Duel, which Luke accepted, though he instead Dueled Trapigeon. Hunt was concerned for Luke during the Duel, both due to how gullible he was and the effect Trapigeon's Trap Cards had on him, but Luke eventually defeated Trapigeon, allowing them to pass.[11]

Hunt eventually led them to the mine, though he almost fell off a ledge due to not looking where he was going and had to be caught by Yuga and Luke, though it proved to be a small fall. Hunt quickly uncovered a prototype Duel Disk, and after Yuga and Hunt dug up enough prototype Duel Disks for Yuga to extract three Duel ID cards and add them to his Deck, Luke tried to get Hunt to find more. Asana and the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club then arrived and she confirmed that she had made her Maximum from the ID cards in the mine, informing them that most of the Duel ID cards in the Duel Disks couldn't be used due to their age. Asana challenged Yuga to a Rush Duel, agreeing to allow the students of Goha #6 Elementary to Rush Duel freely if she lost, but with the condition that Rush Dueling would be banned at all elementary schools in Goha City if she won. Yuga was barely able to fend off "Wyrm Excavator the Heavy Cavalry Draco", and Asana revealed that she knew Yuga was planning on using Nail's "Yggdrago the Sky Emperor" against her and urged him to Summon it. After Hunt's bag split open and revealed the Duel Disks they'd already opened inside it, Yuga confirmed that he'd added the three Duel ID cards to his Deck and was gambling on being able to recreate "Supreme Machine Magnum Overlord". To Hunt's joy, Yuga succeeded in drawing and Maximum Summoning "Magnum Overlord", powering it up and attacking "Wyrm Excavator". However, Asana was able to make the ATK of their Maximum Monsters equal, and as they destroyed one another Hunt noticed that Asana and Yuga's Maximum cards were beginning to disintegrate; Gavin ruling that whoever's Maximum was destroyed first would take the ATK of the other.[12] Both Maximums ended up disintegrating at the same time, allowing the Duel to continue, though Hunt was embarrassed by Luke lamenting over the fragments of the destroyed cards. During the Duel, Asana revealed that she had made a deal with Goha Enterprises to have the parts for Heavy Cavalry remanufactured if she successfully crushed Rush Dueling when R6 began to break down. Yuga was able to defeat Asana, also revealing that the mine contained R0, a Mobile Duel Device created and modified by Mutsuba Heavy Machinery, which convinced the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club to allow their vehicles to be modified.[13]

Team Battle Royal[edit]

After the Duel between Yuga and Asana, Hunt decided to return to the mine in the hope of finding more Duel ID cards to convert into Maximum Monsters. As he was sneezing to uncover more prototype Duel Disks, he was approached by Goha 66, who offered to help Hunt excavate the Duel Disks if he was able to help him. Hunt agreed to make a deal with Goha 66, and they soon uncovered most of the Duel Disks in the mine. Hunt, Kaseki and Diggs began selling the Maximum Monsters to other children after converting them from the Duel ID cards and Hunt obtained one of his own; "Great Imperial Dinocarriage Dynarmix", but they only sold the other children a single Maximum Monster each to prevent them from obtaining a full set.[14]

After the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal was announced, Luke dragged Hunt to the Abandoned Dorm, an entrance to the mine, which he had dubbed "Maximum Mountain" in the hope that Hunt would help him find Maximum Monsters after getting permission from the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club, though Hunt had to deflect Luke's suspicions of his new gold hardhat. Luke admitted that Yuga wasn't planning on entering the tournament, though he wasn't sure why. When Luke and Hunt entered the mineshaft, they found themselves surrounded by lights that made the shaft appear to be outer space, which had been strung up by Goha #5 Elementary's Space Operations Duel Squadron. Their leader, Braun Honya, was also hoping to find Maximum Monsters in the mine, and he challenged Asana to a Rush Duel for the right to excavate there; Asana agreed, but instead had him Duel Luke. Although Braun gave Luke some trouble, he was eventually able to defeat Braun. As Romin and Gavin arrived, they all realized why Yuga had refused to enter the tournament, and Asana permitted them all to dig in the mine, with Luke inviting the Space Operations Duel Squadron to join them. As Hunt and Goha 66 had already excavated most of the Duel Disks in the mine, the excavation ended in failure; Hunt kept his role in the matter secret.[14][15]

Due to the wealth he made from selling Maximum Monsters, Hunt rose in standing amongst his friends and they registered for the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal as "Team Excavate Treasure HUNTers instead of by their club name.[14][16] Once the tournament began, Hunt, Kaseki and Diggs's team quickly rose to third in the rankings due to their Maximum Monsters. Hunt, Kaseki and Diggs visited the Ramen Hut, where the members of the other two high-ranked teams were having ramen; Yuga, Nail, Roa, Luke, Romin and Gavin. Hunt challenged Yuga to a Rush Duel, unwilling to Duel Nail due to his own Maximum Monsters or Roa as they were unfamiliar with his Deck. Hunt made swift use of his "Jurassic World" and "Zenigebazauls" to reduce Yuga's LP, but found his strategy easily picked apart by Yuga's "Ice Age Catapult". Fortunately for Hunt he drew his Maximum Monsters on his next turn and Maximum Summoned "Dynarmix", almost defeating Yuga, though he was able to survive by reducing the ATK of "Dynarmix". Rayne then arrived and revealed that Hunt and his friends had been distributing the Maximums, having purchased one from him in disguise, and Diggs and Kaseki confessed what they had done despite the gifts that Hunt had given them. Hunt didn't see what was wrong with his actions (despite Luke's anger over them) and discarded his friends, claiming that his business would skyrocket if he defeated Yuga. He believed that his Maximum assured his victory, but to his shock Yuga revealed that he had obtained one too; from the card Rayne had bought, another that Roa had been given by one of Hunt's customers who happened to be a fan of Roa's, and a single card that Asana had recovered from Maximum Mountain. He Maximum Summoned "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan", using its effects to reduce the ATK of "Dynarmix" and inflict damage to Hunt, then defeat "Dynarmix" and Hunt. After the Duel, Hunt and his friends apologized, though Hunt still believed that money was more important than Dueling. Luke told them to hand over their remaining Maximums, but Hunt admitted they'd sold them all and revealed the deal he'd made with Goha 66.[14]

Despite their efforts, Diggs, Hunt and Kaseki failed to place in the tournament, so they attended the finals of the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal on the third day, Hunt switching back to his usual clothes. They watched Romin's victory against Roa and Gavin's Duel against Nail, where Hunt was shocked by Gavin's new "Gakuting" persona. Faced with "Yggdrago the Sky Emperor", Gavin eventually returned to his normal persona after apower outage in the stadium and forced a DRAW, leaving Yuga and Luke to have a final Duel.[17][18]

Hunt watched Yuga and Luke's Rush Duel, stunned when Yuga Maximum Summoned "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan" against Luke. Afterwards the power in the stadium began to fail again, revealed to be due to the Goha Duel Server being hacked, and Hunt witnessed the revelation of the Goha Duel Server on the moon and the Rush Duel Program contained within, under attack by Goha Enterprises Drones that were uninstalling it and had been all tournament.[19] Despite knowing their Duel would complete the uninstallation, Yuga and Luke continued to Duel, Hunt and his friends shocked by the crowd's support for their Duel. Luke eventually won, resulting in the uninstallation of Rush Dueling, but Yuga and Nail were able to reinstall the program and install it in the Super Rush Robot to protect it from another attack. Hunt then watched Luke's coronation as King of Duels.[20]

Goha 6 Siblings[edit]

The true Goha Presidents, the Goha Siblings, returned to Earth, evicted the current president, Mimi Imimi, and challenged Yuga and his friends to Rush Duels with the Super Rush Robot held hostage by Forced Gymnastics Armaments that would shake it apart unless Yuga defeated the six siblings.[21] Hunt was in Goha City one night with Diggs, Kaseki, Saburamen, Sushiko, Nick and the Space Operations Duel Squadron when he watched the Rush Duel between Yuga and The☆Lukeman, including Yuo Goha's rage after he believed Yuga and The☆Lukeman weren't taking the Duel seriously. To Hunt's shock a meteor entered the atmosphere and plunged towards Yuga, having been dragged in by the Goha Meteor Shower, and Yuga blocked the meteor with his Duel Disk, acquiring the "Fusion" card contained within it and using it to defeat The☆Lukeman, saving the Super Rush Robot.[22]

Goha Employee[edit]

Following Yuga's Rush Duel with The☆Lukeman, several "Fusion" cards feel over Goha City, having been contained in destroyed Goha satellites caught in the Goha Meteor Shower. Hunt was unable to acquire one of them and began arguing with Diggs and Kaseki to the point the Dueling and Dinosaur Research Club was on the verge of disbandment. Having heard about the hiring of Yuga and his friends at Goha Enterprises, Hunt visited Luke and brought him, Swirly, Yosh and the Goha #7 Elementary Newspaper Club to an underground stairway where he could smell money, hoping to make a business arrangement with Luke. His plan proved fruitful, as they discovered an abandoned Goha factory containing a Duel Card Manufacturer. After they made their own display sample cards, Hunt asked Scoop Pitman if the machine could be modified to create modern Duel Monsters cards, hoping to use it to create more Maximum Monsters and "Fusions" in tandem with Luke's "Luke Division". Scoop admitted the machine likely could do so, but insisted Hunt doing so would be immoral and after Hunted popped Yosh's cosplay suit he challenged Scoop to a Rush Duel. Scoop revealed five of Hunt's Dinosaur monsters from the top of his Deck with "Printing Presser" on his first turn and sent them to the bottom of his Deck, but this gave Hunt the chance to use his "Upstart King Rex" combo to draw and Maximum Summon "Great Imperial Dinocarriage Dynarmix". Hunt easily destroyed all of Scoop's cards and depleted most of his LP, but Scoop declared he would reveal the truth and to Hunt's shock he Fusion Summoned "Lightning Speed, the Rumbling Report Warship", using "Tile Burn" to reveal Hunt's Dinosaurs from the bottom of his Deck and inflict damage to him for each, then return them to the top of Hunt's Deck to ensure the effect of "Lightning Speed" would deplete the ATK of "Dynarmix" enough for it to destroy. Defeated, Hunt lamented that he just wanted to pursue a luxury dream and Luke suggested Hunt work with him. To everyone's shock, the ceiling caved in and destroyed the Duel Card Manufacturer, something Luke noted was for the best. Hunt tried to admit his admiration of Luke's decision, but was knocked out by a falling metal bowl.[23]

A Zombie Party recreation time event was planned at Goha Enterprises, and after Hunt was "zombified" he lay in wait in the evacuation Drone to catch any escapees off guard, successfully catching Yuo Goha this way. However his efforts crashed the Drone, and Hunt admitted he'd got so caught up in his act he'd almost died for real, prompting Yuo to go on a tirade about how they couldn't take recreation time without his permission.[24]


Hunt uses a Dinosaur Deck. In comparison to his friend Professor Diggs's Deck, his purely contains Dinosaur monsters and his monsters are generally LIGHT and adorned with fancy jewelry, reflecting Hunt's materialistic nature. His strategy reflects this as well, as he "lends" LP to his opponent with "Upstart Goblin" before taking it back with the effect of his "Zenigebazauls".

After excavating in Maximum Mountain, Hunt acquires his own Maximum Monsters, forming "Great Imperial Dinocarriage Dynarmix", whose effects are based around enduring normal cards and rely on the notion that very few people have complete Maximum Monsters, due to Hunt giving out the rest of his stock a single card at a time. Hunt makes use of several draw effects to help him draw the pieces of "Dynarmix".
