Takashi is nicknamed Taka (タカ). He has black hair in a pompadour hairstyle, with a red streak in front. He wears a black jacket over a white t-shirt and blue jeans. His two-player version has a purple streak in his hair, and he wears black jeans.
Along with Keishirou Ichihigashi, Takashi represents Japan in Lethal Crash Race. If the player wins the game using Takashi, he celebrates his win but says he couldn't have done it without his "faithful mechanics" - Emma and (oddly) Cincia. In a few years, Takashi will win the F-1 World Championship. Juan Luigi Conte is also shown, saying that he knew Takashi could do it.
