"REAL YAKUZA USE A GAMEPAD" ― A phrase known by every real yakuza.
Description[edit | edit source]
A Keyboard is something typically used for writing, but it can double as a deadly weapon on the right hands, it is 1000000% possible to kill someone employing them this way. It is well known that a true yakuza will only ever use a gamepad, so in this sense, using a keyboard would destroy his status and pride as yakuza, and thus only evil criminals and honorless yakuza dare to wield them as weapons. Thus, Keyboards became the conceptual antithesis of any real yakuza who carries himself with honor.
