Jou Fukairi 深入 ジョー(フカイリ ジョー Fukairi Jou) is a major supporting character appearing in the anime series, Crash B-Daman. His B-Daman is a customized and repainted (to Orange) Iron Odin with a Power Long Barrel and a Panzer Faust Crash Weapon.


Jou is an olive green haired man with green eyes. His fringe bangs cover the right side of his face.

He wears a yellow polo shirt with a red necktie under an orange fringe jacket, olive green short pants and a pair of white cowboy style boots.


Jou is a very kind-hearted and easygoing man. He is also shown to be quite flirtatious and loves to show off his abilities in skiing and gambling. The most notable trait of Jou is that he is a believer of superstition and thinks that everything happens because it is fated to be. Because of this, he appears as very weird to everybody else.

He also tends to stick to other's businesses, earning him the nickname of "Meddler" or "Busybody" (よけなおせっかい yokke na osekkai).


Jou is a very kind-hearted man. He is one of the Seven legendary B-Ders and is a Fatalist. He won against Teruma Kamioka during the quarterfinals of the World Crash Grand Prix, however, Jou drops out of the competition shortly after a wall, destroyed by Teruma's marble, injures him.

Jou falls in love with Maria the woman who nursed him to which he decided to leave Hitto and his friends for a while in order for him to pursue his "love at first sight."

Later on, Jou is reunited with Hitto and friends during the Conference of the World Crash Cup Finals. He decided to participate in the said competition and deemed it as his last battle because he is getting married to Maria. Eventually, he and Maria get married in "a wedding fit for two B-Ders" and she allowed him to join Hitto as one of the Seven Legendary B-Ders and fight Saionji Konzern.

A bit later on, Jou offers his help to become the guide for Hitto and his friends around the snowy mountain. Jou reveals his hand consisting of three suits in number seven and two Jacks; calling it his destiny to meet Hitto and his friends right at that day.
