Sakuragi's Gang, also known as The Sakuragi Legion (桜木軍団 Sakuragi Gundan?), act like a Greek chorus. Sakuragi's Gang has five members consisting of Hanamichi Sakuragi, Yohei Mito, Chuichirou Noma, Yuji Ohkusu, and Nozomi Takamiya. Despite their loyalty and willingness at offering a hand whenever convenient, they often tease Sakuragi, for which they receive headbutts. They also take advantage of him by frequently placing bets on whether his endeavors will succeed, and even charge admission to see Sakuragi's new hairstyle. In spite of all this, along with Yohei they are among Sakuragi's most loyal supporters, going to his games to cheer him on, and helping him out when he had to make 20,000 shots in one week to prepare for the National Championships.
