Garouden (餓狼伝, Garōden; literally: "The Legend of the Hungry Wolf") is an original series, written by Baku Yumemakura and illustrated by Keisuke Itagaki, serialized in Young Magazine Uppers and Evening from 1999 to 2010.


The central plot revolves around a man named Bunshichi Tanba, a dojo-crasher who seeks stronger fighters to prove his strength to himself. While traveling to several schools and challenging the best each had to offer, Tanba came to the FAW (a gym that trains pro-wrestlers) and is pitted against Toshio Kajiwara. Tanba is defeated and humiliated after realizing that he is not strong enough and disappears for 3 years. Upon his return, he has become nearly unbeatable.
