Gook was a somewhat lazy Shinigami that was friends with Ryuk and Deridovely, often gambling with them but often losing at the same time.

In the Death Note anime, Gook is first seen in the first episode gambling with Deridovely where they saw Ryuk transend into the Human world. He was only seen in flashback scenes throughout the rest of the series, however in the OVA Death Note: Relight Gook is seen speaking to Deridovely and Zellogi confronted by an Unknown Shinigami that was in search of Ryuk.


Gook is a hairy ghoul with a goats skull for a head, a ring of blue beads round his neck and red tattoo on his belly.
