"Will you still choose to believe in Gray-dono!?"

Gômon to Team Natsu in "Code Blue"

Gômon (豪門(ゴウモン) Gōmon) is a member of the Black Magic cult, Avatar.


Gômon's appearance

Gômon is a tall, older gentleman with blue eyes and a very prominent, bushy eyebrows and a thick goatee. He is bald and wears a dark blue robe decorated with various symbols and tied with a white sash. He also keeps a straw-hat draped on his shoulder.[1][2] Gômon has commented that he dresses the way he does in honor of Zeref, who he is attempting to cosplay; the kanji tattooed to his forehead were also put there because he believed they were read as "Zeref", despite this being incorrect. According to Lucy the kanji actually says "matcha".[3]


Gômon is a seemingly quirky individual, and has an unusual habit of randomly saying "tea." He also appears to care for his comrades, and was visibly upset when he found his fellow Avatar member, Abel, defeated.[4] He has a habit of bowing respectfully, even if there is nobody present to receive the gesture.[5]


Avatar arc

Gômon engaging the intruders

During an Avatar meeting, Gômon sits at a round table with his comrades, and listens as Alok chants to them that the time of Avatar has come.[6] When the members of Avatar meet later to discuss the spy within their midst, Gômon asserts that the council being aware of their purification plan is a problem, and is teased by Mary for making a lame joke. Gômon listens with the rest of his comrades when Gray Fullbuster reveals that he is using Avatar to get a hold of the Book of E.N.D.[7]

Later, when Gômon realizes that there are intruders in Avatar's headquarters, he rushes to their location. Upon arrival, he discovers Abel lying on the ground after being defeated by Natsu Dragneel. He attempts to engage Natsu in combat, but is swiftly downed.[4] However, he rises once more and catches Natsu off-guard as the Dragon Slayer converses with Gray, trapping Natsu in sealing stone manacles and assisting in capturing the group.[8]

Gômon readily about to dismember Lucy

After Natsu, Lucy and Happy have been transferred to a cell for holding, Gômon visits to extract information from them with the use of his torture devices. Natsu demands to see Gray, but Gômon tells them that Gray is with the rest of the cult, preparing their purification ritual; he then asks Natsu to reveal the group that sent them to infiltrate their headquarters, though Natsu, truthfully, replies that they came on their on accord for Gray. Not believing the Dragon Slayer, Gômon prepares to subject Lucy to torture via a goat licking her feet, though soon becomes angry at Natsu's yelling and decides to just cut her in half instead. However, before he can, he is frozen solid by Gray, who comes to the duo's rescue.[9] He is then tied on his triangular wood dragon and left naked in the dungeon until Gajeel finds him, with Gômon later being imprisoned.[10]
