Benny Haha also known as Gyujiroh Japan, is one of the most prevalent and major antagonists in the history of Duel Masters, both in the Anime and Manga.
In the first season of the anime (manga), he was the third of the four Temple Guardians, as well as being Mimi's "twin brother" in the English dub of the anime (In the Japanese, this is not shown). Since then, he proceeds to run different schemes to undermine Shobu and his friends, as well as a generation later, Shobu's brother.
He is an extremely despicable person who uses whatever way, including unfair and dirty means to win, such as slipping Shield Triggers into his shields and taking people hostage, then use various means to weaken or kill them once they duel him or his cohorts. He is also extremely intelligent and has intelligence over regular humans, enabling him to build numerous robots and schemes in an instant. He is also extremely weak physically that even Shobu in Duel Masters Versus is capable of knocking him out with a swipe to the head. As a result, he usually uses robots to do his job. His influence even extends to Katta Kirifuda's period after years of seeming retreat, making him one of the most prevalent antagonists in duel masters history, and may be on par, or even more prevalent than Zakira.
He is often seen piloting a robot. In his Temple duel against Shobu, he unfairly used cameras installed in various statues to look at Shobu's hand as well as using the information to scare him and gain an unfair advantage.
He returns in Season 2 as Gyujiro Japan and he defeated Jamira in the Duel Masters Battle Arena Tournament finals, but he is still evil. He tricked Hakuoh before their official match by kidnapping Mikuni and Makoto Aizen. Afterwards when he was not able to defeat Hakuoh in a duel, he injured Hakuoh so he would not be unable to duel him the next morning in the Finals. He ended up dueling Shobu again, but lost.
He is also working with Yumama. After he lost to Shobu, Yumama trapped him in a room with George. They both escaped inside The Battle Arena by digging themselves out and claimed to the crowd that she have been defeating the other contestants before the official duel just so that she can duel Shobu.
In episode 40, he was shown to be with Gyou in an abandoned factory. Like in the previous seasons, he still used his dirty tactics together with Gyou in order to disable the other 3 finalist of the national tournament from the competition; Katta Kirifuda, Lucifer and Kojiro. He first targets Lucifer and had watched every move he had done and lures him in botanical garden greenhouse, weakening him with a series of traps after Gyou kidnaps Yohdel, Justice and Helen. He even adjusted the temperature of the greenhouse to made Lucifer uncomfortable during his duel against Gyou. However his plan was foiled by Katta and his friends, who arrived to help Lucifer after learning the situation, with Benchan hacking and lowering the temperature settings of the greenhouse.
In episode 41, it was revealed with Gyou that his plan on disabling Lucifer was a success. He was shown at the end of the episode with an evil smirk on his face after Lucifer fainted due to the poison. In episode 42, he and Gyou knocked down the surveillance guards in the tournament stadium to execute their plans. However, the poison he used on Katta does not work, much to his surprise. He then gives Gyou The=Deadbrachio, World Evil Dragonkind for him to use. After Katta defeated Gyou using Lucifer's card, he attempts to execute his second plan. However, Shobu was present watching the semi-finals, being aware of the situation arrived and knocked him down, stopping his evil plans once and for all. He got shocked to see that Shobu was still alive before losing consciousness.
Benny Haha returns in VSR after being seemingly defeated in VS as the mastermind of the duel masters land conspiracy. While he does not appear directly for over half a year in DMVSR, the viewer is given numerous proofs that the Duema Land President is Benny Haha in some form or way. These include;
- The top floor of Duel Masters Land is based on Benny haha's head.
- A type of booster pack in DMX-21 Masters Chronicle Pack: Comic of Heroes being a pack based on the Duema Land President instead. Additionally, in Unidentified Objective's artwork,the Duema Land President is commanding a robot with a cannon having the word "牛" ("Gyuu", referring to "Gyuujiro") on it.
- His (seemingly) former cohort; Gyou, is found to be working with the "president".
- Corocoro Comics used the word "牛耳ろう" (Read as "Gyuujiro") when describing Completely Unidentified in their January 1 issue.
- When Duemouse's true identity is revealed, when the president blabbered about his plans, a silhouette of Benny Haha can be seen.
- The ???, the "President's" favorite race has traits that resemble him.
Eventually after Basara defeated the Duema Land President, duel masters land collapses and Benny Haha is seen being the person inside the robotic president. He then vows to take revenge on Katta and leaves.
