The Coliseum is a location in Purgatory in Kamurocho. Fighting tournaments take place here.


Like the rest of Purgatory, the Coliseum was opened after the disgraced former police detective known as The Florist of Sai went underground to become a private information dealer. This happened sometime between 1988 and 2005.

Yakuza/Yakuza Kiwami Edit

The Florist tells Kiryu that he will only give him the information he wants about Mizuki in exchange for fighting three rounds in the Coliseum. Kiryu wins the three rounds, defeating the reigning Coliseum champion Gary "Buster" Holmes in the process.

Yakuza 2/Yakuza Kiwami 2 Edit

Goro Majima has taken over temporary control of Purgatory and its Coliseum. Majima says that he will re-join the Tojo Clan to assist them in finding the bombs planted around Kamurocho, but only if Kiryu once again wins three rounds in the Coliseum. Majima himself is the final opponent.

Yakuza 3 Edit

The Coliseum has been closed for two years and is not re-opened until Kiryu once again renews his in-ring rivalry with Majima. Upon the completion of their fight, Nishida lets Kiryu know that the coliseum has officially been opened again.

Yakuza 4 Edit

In this game, Taiga Saejima is forced to have a fight to the death here. Just before he is about to strike the killing blow however, he relents. He addresses the booing crowd, telling them that they have no right to judge him, as they do not know his pain.


Yakuza 5Edit

In an Easter egg, Kazuma Kiryu's voice actor Takaya Kuroda appears as the Coliseum receptionist.



Rather than yen, items from this store are purchased in exchange for points earned by fighting in the Coliseum tournaments.
