Tetsu Shinjou is a character in the Cardfight!! Vanguard Anime.
Founding member of the Foo Fighters. Tetsu acts as Ren's right hand, and is known as the "General" of AL4(Apex Limited 4). He uses a Dark Irregulars deck, which fills up its soul with many units and to use as ammunition against opponents.
Tetsu was the first person to have PSY Qualia used on him, in an accident that gave him a lasting impression of Ren's strength. Even then his ties to Ren were strong, and he felt obligated to look out for his friend; after Kai's desertion, Tetsu chose to stay by Ren's side. Presently he acts as second in command.
In Episode 62, after Asaka lost and was fired from AL4. Tetsu told her that he would like to see Ren lose and that Aichi might be the one who can defeat Ren, not Kai.
During the second season, Tetsu plays a more of a supportive role in the new AL4 team giving his spot in the lineup to Kai and briefly lending his deck to Ren during his fight with Kenji. He is frequently challenged by Kamui only to beat him each time. During their last confrontation in the season, Kamui finally defeats Tetsu (though he was in disguise so Kamui did not know he defeated him).
In the third season, Tetsu, who recently graduated from Fukuhara High School, becomes the coach of his high school's cardfight club. Tetsu also invited Team Dreadnought to his school for training matches.
Tetsu is level-headed, calm and analytical.He also does not have a big sense of humor.He does not get shocked very often.
