Assistant commissioner in the fourth game.
He and Sugiuchi covered up the true perpetrator of the case 25 years before, Katsuragi, in which 18 yakuza were killed, letting Taiga Saejima take the blame.
Yakuza 4 Edit
He was involved in the missing 10 billion yen incident five years before, and had many secret funds which he used to build illegal prisons and control criminals. Using his influence he sends Arai undercover as a member of the Tojo Clan. In an attempt to get the 100 billion yen from Kiryu he orders Arai to take the children at Sunshine Orphanage hostage. Rejecting him, Arai shoots Munakata, though the bullet is only plastic. He later appears with the three other men (Arai, Kido and Daigo) on top of the Millennium Tower to claim the money. Tanimura takes him on as the final battle and, after his defeat and Date outing the truth about Munakata, he commits suicide with Arai's discarded gun.
Fighting style Edit
Munakata relies only on his bodyguards to protect him while he attempts to attack you from a far range with his gun, he tends to run from you when you get close to him. Munakata either calls his bodyguards to attack you when you keep defeating his bodyguards, or he can sometimes call back his bodyguards to protect himself while the bodyguards try to attack you.
