Every Unique Job for Each Party Member

In Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio decided to replace the high-octane brawling action with turn-based combat. The more cerebral system forces you to think more about your abilities and choices rather than rely on skills and reflexes. You’ll have to consider stats, weapons, armor, and, most importantly, job choices.

Each of your six party members can choose from a variety of jobs, which greatly impact their abilities and stats. Every one of them gets at least one unique job. Kasuga gets two, while Saeko, as the only woman in the party, gets five exclusive jobs. All the men also get access to a pool of eight jobs that we cover in a separate guide here.

To get a lowdown and a better understanding of all the unique jobs in Yakuza: Like a Dragon, we’ve got you covered.

Each Job Skill with an asterisk next to it denotes that it’s also a Character Skill. After they’re unlocked, party members retain access to these skills, even after switching jobs.

 
 

Yakuza: Like a Dragon Kasuga Jobs

Yakuza: Like a Dragon - Ichiban Kasuga Job Guide

Kasuga is the center of your party, and he’s the only one you can’t swap out. When he goes down in combat, it’s game over, so you’ll want to keep him protected. Luckily, his unique jobs and Character Skills position him to be a pretty hearty character.

Ichiban Kasuga - Character Skills

These skills are inherent to Kasuga, no matter what his job is.

  • Charismatic Persuasion - Level 5: May brainwash a single enemy, making them flee. Chance improves with Kasuga’s Charisma.
  • Charismatic Intimidation - Level 23: May cause fear in a single enemy, making them flee. Chance scales with Kasuga’s Level.
  • Tag Team: Essence of Mayhem - Bond skill: Single-target blunt attack. Damage scales with deeper party member bonds. Plays a cutscene.

Tag Team: Essence of Mayhem is always a good option for some massive damage, while the Charismatic skills can come in handy when you need to end a short fight quickly.

Ichiban Kasuga - Freelancer Job

In general, the Freelancer job is all about blunt damage and high speed. With higher Agility, Kasuga gets more turns more often, letting him hit more enemies with his wrestling moves that have good chances to crit or stun.

If you want Kasuga to be all about damage, the Freelancer job is the one for him.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon Kasuga Ichiban

 

Ichiban Kasuga - Hero Job

The Hero job turns Kasuga into a tanky support that can still dish out damage. He gets a lot of extra HP and Defense, and he can heal the entire party pretty easily. On top of that, he provides an all-party Attack buff that’s too good to pass up. The cherry on top? Kasuga can still dish the damage with his trusty baseball bat, with Mega and Giga Swing acting as powerful area clearers.

Excels at: Blunt Attacks, Healing, Buffs

Stat Boosts: Max HP (+120 at Rank 99), Defense (+50 at Rank 99)

Hero Job Skills

  • Bat Buster - Unlocks at Rank 1. Single-target blunt attack.
  • Mega Swing - Unlocks at Rank 1. Area-target blunt attack. Does greater damage when Kasuga’s HP is lower.
  • Fearless Command - Unlocks at Rank 4. All allies get boosted Attack. The boost scales off Kasuga’s Passion.

  • Hero’s Embrace - Unlocks at Rank 24. Restore all allies’ HP to max.
  • Essence of Full Swing - Unlocks at Rank 28. Area-target blunt attack. Does greater damage when Kasuga’s HP is lower. Plays a cutscene.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon - Koichi Adachi Job Guide

Adachi is the first new party member you’ll meet in Yakuza: Like a Dragon. While Kasuga is wary of him at first, Adachi proves to be one of the most reliable members of the party. All of his character skills make him a blunt-attack powerhouse that can hit multiple enemies. The Detective job works well on him, but switching him to be an Enforcer isn’t a bad idea, either.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon Adachi

Koichi Adachi - Character Skills

Adachi’s Character Skills are great at crowd control.

  • Reckless Charge - Level 8. Charge forward and deal blunt damage to anyone in the way.
  • Breaking Top - Level 15. Grab an enemy and spin them around, dealing blunt damage to anyone hit.
  • Desperate Throw - Level 25. Massive single-target blunt attack that also damages Adachi.
  • Essence of Hell’s Wheel - Level 45. All-target blunt attack. Plays a cutscene.
  • Tag Team: Nelson Strike - Bond Level 5. Single-target blunt attack with Kasuga. Plays a cutscene.

Reckless Charge and Breaking Top really takes advantage of enemies who are clustered together. When he hits Level 45, Essence of Hell’s Wheel becomes a powerful, reliable skill for clearing out minions but also hitting a boss hard.

Koichi Adachi - Detective Job

Adachi’s Detective job is exclusive to him, and it’s great at dishing out blunt damage and crowd control. Enraging targets makes them target Adachi, and they’ll only hit him with basic attacks. With his high HP pool and Defense, he can take the hits, letting the rest of the party focus on damage. The attacks that have a chance to stun or fear also provide some breathing room in a fight.

Excels at: Blunt Attacks, Tanking

Stat Boosts: HP (+150 at Rank 99), Defense (+50 at Rank 99)

Detective Job Skills

  • Beatdown - Rank 1. SIngle-target blunt attack. Chance to enrage target.
  • Slick Tongue* - Rank 1. Chance to enrage all targets.
  • On Guard - Rank 3. Until next turn, Adachi counterattacks all close-range attacks with blunt damage.
  • Heavy Beatdown - Rank 4. Single-target blunt attack.
  • Detective’s Determination - Rank 6. Chance to cause fear in one enemy. Success rate increases with Adachi’s Level.

  • Helmsplitter - Rank 12. Single-target blunt attack. May stun, with a higher chance to stun as Adachi has high HP.
  • Detective’s Eye - Rank 16. Self-target Accuracy boost.
  • Arrest - Rank 18. Chance to immediately knock out a single enemy.
  • Grand Helmsplitter* - Rank 22. Single target blunt attack. May stun, with a higher chance to stun as Adachi has high HP.
  • Essence of Bulldozing Throw - Rank 24. Single-target blunt attack. Damage scales with Adachi’s remaining HP. Plays a cutscene.
  • Essence of Body Stacking - Rank 28. Targets two enemies with a blunt attack. Plays a cutscene.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon - Yu Nanba Job Guide

Nanba is the nurse-turned-homeless guy masquerading as a black mage. He saves Kasuga’s life early in the story. From then on, he’s known for summoning pigeons and spewing alcoholic fire at enemies. If you’re looking for massive fire damage, Nanba’s your guy.

Yu Nanba - Character Skills

Nanba’s Character Skills make him a pretty decent healer, although he won’t be as effective as a job that focuses more on healing. It’s better to think of Nanba as a black mage that can provide some heals in a pinch. When it comes to needing a full-party heal, you should rely on Kasuga’s Hero job or Saeko’s Idol job.

  • Power Nap - Level 5. Nanba recovers some HP.
  • Healing Powder - Level 10. Single-target HP recovery.
  • Power Snooze - Level 15. Nanba recovers more HP.
  • Essence of Resuscitation - Level 25. Revive one ally. Plays a cutscene.
  • Healing Bolus - Level 35. Greater single-target HP recovery.
  • Power Slumber - Level 45. Nanba fully recovers his HP.
  • Tag Team: Heat Buster - Bond Level 5. Single-target blunt and fire attack with Kasuga. Plays a cutscene.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon Nanba

Yu Nanba - Homeless Guy Job

Nanba’s signature job, Homeless Guy, is for more than laughs. He gets major gains in his Max MP and Magic stat. This means he can dish out the magic damage—specifically fire damage—for a long time. His basic attack restores some MP too, giving him lots of sustain in longer fights. His Attack and Defense debuffs also give your party an edge, especially against major bosses. Combined with his healing abilities, this job always ensures Nanba has something to do when it’s his turn.

Excels at: Fire Attacks, Debuffs

Stat Boosts: Max MP (+140 at Rank 99), Magic (+70 at Rank 99)

Homeless Guy Job Skills

  • Pigeon Raid - Rank 1. Single-target magic attack.
  • Gnarly Breath - Rank 1. Lower Defense of a single target.
  • Pitiful Look - Rank 1. May steal an item from an enemy.
  • Pyro Belch - Rank 4. Area-target fire attack. May cause burns.

  • Essence of Pyro Prison - All-target fire damage. May cause burns. Plays a cutscene.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon - Saeko Mukoda Job Guide

In Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Saeko is the only woman you get in your party. This means that she gets access to her own unique job—the Barmaid—but also a slew of other ones. Presumably, if another woman was in the party, they would also get access to these jobs, but since that’s not the case, we’ll cover all five of Saeko’s classes here.

Saeko Mukoda - Character Skills

Saeko’s Character Skills are nothing to write home about. You’ll likely find better versions of most of these skills in the job you decide for her.

  • Boundless Cheer - Level 5. Boost an ally’s Attack.
  • Sly Pose - Level 10. Chance to lower an enemy’s Attack.
  • Pleading Beam - Level 15. Chance to steal an item from the enemy.
  • Alluring Kiss - Level 25. Chance to charm an enemy.
  • Jewel Breaker - Level 35. Single-target blunt attack. May lower enemy’s Evasion.
  • Essence of Remotivation - Level 45. Revive one ally. Plays a cutscene.
  • Tag Team: Bombardier Bash - Bond Level 5. Single-target blunt attack with Kasuga. Plays a cutscene.

Essence of Remotivation comes in handy toward the end, and it synergizes well with the Idol job to make her one of the best healers in the game.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon Barmaid

Saeko Mukoda - Barmaid Job

Saeko’s signature job, the Barmaid, is a pretty weak option, all things considered. The job boosts her Magic stat, but most of her skills scale off Attack. Her buffs only apply to herself, and when other jobs have full-party buffs, it makes hers feel pointless. We recommend switching to any of Saeko’s other four jobs as soon as you unlock Hello Work in Chapter 5.

Excels at: Self-buffs, Debuffs

Stat Boosts: Magic (+110 at Rank 99), Max MP (+220 at Rank 99)

Barmaid Job Skills

  • Clobberbag - Rank 1. Single-target blunt attack. May cause stun.
  • Boxercise Blow - Rank 1. Single-target blunt attack.
  • Sharp Perfume - Rank 1. Self-target Attack boost.
  • Beautician’s Finesse* - Rank 4. Self-target Defense boost.
  • Powderpuff Press - Rank 6. Single-target blunt attack. May lower target’s Accuracy.
  • Clobberwheel - Rank 10. Area-target blunt attack.
  • Tweezer Toss - Rank 12. Single-target blunt attack. May cause fear in target.

  • Essence of Handbag Hurricane - Rank 24. SIngle-target blunt attack. Plays a cutscene.
  • Essence of Facial Gone Wrong - Rank 28. Single-target blunt attack. May debuff target.

Saeko Mukoda - Hostess Job

Saeko’s Hostess job provides some much-needed variety to the party around the time you get her. This job gives the party some blade damage as well as a reliable ice attack in Sparkling Cannon. Since her Magic scales well here, her ice attacks will do a lot of damage when they land, making the Hostess a much better damage-dealing pivot from the Barmaid.

Excels at: Blade Attacks, Ice Attacks

Stat Boosts: Max MP (+140 at Rank 99), Magic (+120 at Rank 99)

Hostess Job Skills

  • Card Shot - Rank 1. Single-target blade attack. May cause bleeding.
  • Sparkling Cannon - Rank 1. SIngle-target ice attack. May cause cold or drunkenness.
  • Ashtray Crush - Rank 4. Single-target blunt attack. May lower Accuracy.
  • Cutie Smile - Rank 6. Remove mental status ailments from all enemies.

  • Penalty Roulette - Rank 18. Single-target blunt damage.
  • Ice Spreader* - Rank 22. Single-target ice attack. May cause a cold.
  • Essence of Damnation Date - Rank 24. Chance to immediately knock out one enemy. Plays a cutscene.
  • Essence of Lighter Service - Rank 28. Single-target fire attack. May cause a burn. Plays a cutscene.

Saeko Mukoda - Idol Job

If you wanted only one healer in your party, Saeko’s Idol job is your key to success. If you run it alongside Kasuga’s Hero job, you’ll be covered for almost any situation. The Idol boosts Saeko’s Healing and Defense, and early on, she gets access to single-target and all-party healing skills.

Excels at: Healing, Debuffs

Stat Boosts: Healing (+110 at Rank 99), Defense (+70 at Rank 99)

Idol Job Skills

  • Smash Step - Rank 1. Single-target blunt attack. May cause charm.
  • Twirling Beat - Rank 1. Single-target blunt attack. May cause silence.
  • Magical Voice* - Rank 4. Restore a single ally’s HP.
  • Magical Song - Rank 6. Restore all ally’s HP.
  • Miraculous Voice - Rank 10. Remove physical status ailments from all allies.
  • Lovedrunk Typhoon - Rank 12. Lower the Defense of all enemies. May leave enemies charmed.
  • Impish Wink* - Rank 16. May cause brainwashing in an enemy.
  • Playful Splash - Rank 18. May cause a cold in an enemy.
  • Magical Concert - Rank 22. Fully restore all allies’ HP.
  • Essence of Glowstick Fury - Rank 24. Single-target blunt damage. Damage is boosted based on the number of charmed enemies. Plays a cutscene.
  • Essence of Idol Spirit - Rank 28. Revive a fallen ally. Plays a cutscene.

Lovedrunk Typhoon is easily one of the best skills in Yakuza: Like a Dragon. For a small MP cost, you can lower the defense of every enemy and have a chance to charm them. This leaves them defenseless in more ways than one, giving you the window to gain the upper hand.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon Job Change

Saeko Mukoda - Night Queen Job

Saeko’s Night Queen job is all about trying to end battles quickly. Most of her skills here have a chance to cause brainwashing or an immediate knockout. Unfortunately, most of her attacks are also blunt attacks. For the sake of versatility, you’ll want to make sure you have some blade damage dealers in the party too, like a Bodyguard or Zhao as a Gangster.

Excels at: Blunt Attacks, Debuffs (Brainwashing)

Stat Boosts: HP (+150 at Rank 99), Attack (+70 at Rank 99)

Night Queen Job Skills

  • Heel Stomp - Rank 1. Single-target blunt attack. May cause brainwashing.
  • Luscious Guillotine - Rank 1. Single-target blunt attack. May immediately knock out an enemy.
  • Whip Service - Rank 4. Single-target blunt attack. May cause brainwashing.
  • Somersault Leg* - Rank 6. Area-target blunt attack. May cause brainwashing.
  • Spinning Queen - Rank 10. Area-target blunt attack. May cause brainwashing.
  • Tough Love - Rank 12. Cause brainwashing or silence in a single target.
  • Candle Rush* - Rank 16. Area-target fire attack. May cause burns.

  • Essence of Extreme Bondage - Rank 28. SIngle-target blunt attack. May immediately knock out an enemy. Plays a cutscene.

Saeko Mukoda - Dealer Job

Feeling lucky? Saeko’s Dealer job is all about the luck of the draw, which means this is both one of her best and worst options. Almost all of her useful abilities have a chance at being highly effective, and with the help of [those cards that improve luck chance], you’ll have better luck.

On the bright side, this is one of the few jobs that covers all three physical attack types, so you can have all your bases covered and hit weaknesses as often as possible.

Excels at: Buffs, Debuffs, Luck

Stat Boosts: Dexterity (+125 at Rank 99), Agility (+125 at Rank 99)

Dealer Job Skills

Yakuza: Like a Dragon - Joon-gi Han Job Guide

Joon-gi Han is the fifth party member you get in Yakuza: Like a Dragon. Those of you who played Yakuza 6 might remember his face, but this is a different guy. The more you play with him in his party, the more you’ll see that Joon-gi Han quickly proves his worth as an ally, both in the narrative and combat. 

Joon-gi Han - Character Skills

Joon-gi Han’s Character Skills focus on status ailments. Running the gamut from paralysis to bleeding, he’s a go-to pick for any long boss battle. Tagging them with some poison or bleeding guarantees constant damage. Stun Smash is pretty useful too, providing a chance at paralysis while dealing some hard-to-find electric damage.

  • Stun Smash - Level 5. Single-target blunt and electric attack. May cause paralysis.
  • Crescent Slash - Level 15. Single-target blade damage. May cause bleeding.
  • Sleeping Powder - Level 25. Chance to cause sleep in one target.
  • Poison Shot - Level 35. Single-target blunt attack. May cause poison.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon Joon-gi Han

Joon-gi Han’s Hitman job makes him a cornerstone of your party after you get him.

Excels at: Blunt Attacks, Gun Attacks

Stat Boosts: Agility (+70 at Rank 99), Dexterity (+70 at Rank 99)

Hitman Job Skills

  • Head Trauma - Rank 1. Single-target blunt attack.
  • Combo Beat - Rank 1. Single-target blunt attack.
  • Sniper Shot - Rank 1. Single-target gun attack.
  • Banshee Bayonet - Rank 4. Single-target blunt attack. Han disappears on the first turn, then attacks on his second.
  • Rapid Shot* - Rank 6. Single-target gun attack.

With some powerful gun skills, he’s a reliable choice for fleshing out your party’s damage options. Divine Shot especially clears large group encounters like nothing else. His high Agility also gives him the opportunity to hit first and more often. 

 


Yakuza: Like a Dragon - Tianyou Zhao Job Guide

Zhao is the last party member you’ll get in Yakuza: Like a Dragon. His addition is a welcome surprise, and he boasts some hard-hitting damage in combat. Outside of a fight, his lighthearted levity in on-the-street interactions injects some extra playfulness into the atmosphere.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon zhao

Tianyou Zhao - Character Skills

Zhao's Character Skills are nothing to write home about. They focus on blunt attacks, so it's highly recommended to choose a job for him that excels in other damage types. Luckily, his Gangster job fits the bill pretty well, with the focus on blade attacks. Tigersbane Palm might be his best Character Skill for the added stun, and it may or may not be aptly named, considering some of the later-game enemies you'll fight.

  • Triple Tiger Lashing -  Level 5. Single-target multi-hit blunt attack.
  • Serpent Strike - Level 25. Single-target blunt attack.
  • Tigersbane Palm - Level 35. Single-target blunt attack. May cause stun.
  • Dragonfang Decimator - Level 40. Single-target blunt attack.
  • Mantis Scythe - Level 45. Single-target blunt attack.
  • Essence of Deadly Beasts - Level 50. Single-target blunt attack. Plays a cutscene.
  • Tag Team: Beast Brothers - Bond Level 5. SIngle-target blunt attack with Kasuga. Plays a cutscene.

Tianyou Zhao - Gangster Job

As a Gangster, Zhao dishes out the blunt and blade damage, and his bolstered Attack stat makes these skills hit hard. He isn’t the best for group fights, with most of his useful skills being single-target only. However, when you need to focus damage on one foe—like a boss, for example—he’s a great option, especially with the added stun and bleed chances.

Excels at: Blunt Attacks, Blade Attacks, Debuffs

Stat Boosts: Attack (+70 at Rank 99), Max MP (+130 at Rank 99)

Gangster Job Skills

  • Falling Fang - Rank 1. Single-target blade attack. May cause bleeding.
  • Dragon’s Vortex - Rank 1. SIngle-target blunt attack.

  • Rapid Crane Kick - Rank 12. Single-target blunt attack. May cause stun.
  • Sanguine Blade Dance - Rank 16. Single-target blade attack. May cause bleeding.
  • Seismic Shockwave - Rank 18. Area-target blunt attack. The first turn charges up the attack, and it unleashes on the next turn.

  • Essence of the Phoenix Blade - Rank 24. Single-target blade and fire attack. May cause burns. Plays a cutscene.
  • Essence of Ladder Acrobatics - Rank 28. All-enemy blunt attack. May knock out the last enemy hit. Plays a cutscene.

That covers all the party members you’ll get in Yakuza: Like a Dragon, along with all their signature jobs. If you’re looking to branch out your male party members, check out our guide on the eight non-exclusive jobs for some direction on how to use them best.
