Takeo Inukai (犬飼猛雄 Inukai Takeo) is a character from the Mega Man Battle Network series. He is the operator of BeastMan.EXE in Mega Man Battle Network 3 and Asteroid BeastMan.EXE in the anime.


Inukai is cruel and willing to use violence and fear to tame animals. He sees them as nothing more than tools and views NetNavis and humans the same way. Inukai also believes that the strong should dominate the world and that he was strong since he could dominate the animals. He is also rather rude in the anime, when interacting with others and is also extremely proud, resenting the belief that his former employers who looked down on him and sought revenge because of it. He also shows some degree of optimism regarding any successes he might have, as when BeastMan.EXE was defeated and his plans were foiled, he acknowledges that he at least completed his primary objective of stealing the TetraCode.

He is a member of the WWW and is a zookeeper at the zoo near Yoka . He uses BeastMan to open all the animal cages so that he could steal a TetraCode. BeastMan was defeated by MegaMan, but Inukai escaped with the TetraCode, citing that he at least succeeded in his primary objective. He later operates BeastMan as one of the Undernet's top 10 to obtain the Forbidden Program, but was again defeated by MegaMan. When all the WWW members gather at Wily Castle, Inukai is absent. When one of the members ask Lord Wily why he's not present, he states that he "deleted" Inukai since he failed his mission in the Undernet, which was enough to intimidate his fellow members into praising Lord Wily again.

Inukai seemed to have survived his "deletion", as he was one of the contestants that Lan faced competing in the Battle Chip GP.
