The Tokyo Shock Boys (東京ショックボーイズ Tōkyō Shokku Bōizu?), or Dengeki Network (電撃ネットワーク Dengeki Nettowāku?), is a Japanese group of four men who perform dangerous and crude stunts.

The group was formed in Tokyo in 1990. The Tokyo Shock Boys have a huge cult following in Japan and have appeared in many other countries, such as Australia, Canada, Germany and Scotland.

In 2006, they made appearances in Japanorama, Adam & Joe go Tokyo and the Dirty Sanchez movie. However, their shows are viewed as having more 'magic' stunts rather than painful ones. This was proven in Dirty Sanchez: The Movie as the Tokyo Shock Boys refused to do a show with Dirty Sanchez because they viewed their stunts to be too extreme.

The members of the group are:

  • Torata Nanbu (南部虎弾 Nanbu Torata?, also written as Torata Nambu)
  • Sangojyugo (三五十五 Sangojyugo?)
  • Gyuzo (ギュウゾウ Gyūzō?)
  • Danna Koyanagi (ダンナ小柳?)

In Popular Culture[edit]

On volume 2 of the manga Yu-Gi-Oh!, when asked to slide one's foot inside a shoe with a scorpion, Yugi, Jonouchi, and Honda respond, "Who do you think we are, the Tokyo Shock Boys?"
