Dasher Inoba (ダッシャー猪場) is a character from Ehrgeiz.
Inoba is a prominent wrestler and a disciple of Karl Schneider, the founder of the Ehrgeiz Championship Tournament. He is also a member of the Ehrgeiz supervising committee. With the recent death of his master, Inoba discovers a note left behind by the late Schneider which suggests that he had been investigating the connection between the stone embedded within the Ehrgeiz and the ancient ruins. Ever since laying eyes upon the mystical stone, Inoba has been fascinated by its presence. Compounded by his urge to obtain the stone and to uncover the mystery behind his master’s investigation, he is determined to get his hands on the legendary weapon.
In both Jo and Yoko's ending, Inoba is shown as a recurring enemy towards both of them and he was shown to have clash with Yoko who wields an Ehrgeiz sword as he wields a giant axe as he himself being defeated by her after he manages to break the stone floor with his own axe causing him to be hang on both of his hands which he does not want to get himself killed for being fall into the edge below which Yoko childishly taunts him. Later he rushes towards the train with his giant axe while Jo beats most of the train's engineers. He manages to cut the rope with his axe to release the logs as most of the train engineers are falling below the edge. Jo manages to hop faster to avoid being falling and she ends up being heavily bumped into the wall.
In his ending, he was shown to be a fast eater where he eats ramen at the ramen stall where he repeatedly orders the same special ramen that he eats.

He can also elbow his opponent in mid-air as well even can heavily headbutt his opponent once or twice if it connects. His only unique ability as opposed to most characters who can charge their unique ability is to charge his opponent with several grunts as it connects he can pulverize his opponent with a Power Bomb to make an extensive damage. In both Jo and Yoko's ending, he was seen wielding his Giant Axe and he has a high proficiency in wielding weapons as seen when he and Yoko clash with their weapons from her ending.
