|First Appearance:||Chapter (Manga)|
Shaft (シャフト, Shafuto) is a gang led by Chocolove McDonell before the start of the series.
The gang consists of people that lost everything in their life.
Chocolove's parents were murdered by thieves on Christmas Eve and he were sent to an orphanage. After he grows up, he joined the gang called Shaft and eventually became their leader. After killing a man on Christmas Eve with his gang, Chocolove decides to go for a walk alone on the streets. The gang members discover Chocolove was hanging out with an old man named Orona. Lulu tries to snap Chocolove back to his senses by killing Orona after he makes a speech about saving the world with the wind of laughter. Instead of getting angry at his gang, Chocolove just laughs and performs the O.S. Black Jaguar.
Shaman Fight Second RoundEdit
Chocolove participates in the Shaman Fight while his Shaft Gang members support him during his match against Team "Tsuki-Gumi". One night, Chocolove decides to see his friends from Shaft and discovers all of them were killed. Their killers were Munzer Redseb and Seyram Munzer who used Golem to kill them in order to avenge the death of their late father,Camel Munzer. They succeed in killing Chocolove in the progress, but he gets revived after training in Hell.
Invading the PlantsEdit
All the gang members of Shaft appear on the Soul Train supporting Chocolove.
Chocolove's past was changed in the anime series and the gang only appears in the manga series. In the English version of the manga series, all of the members' lips are edited to avoid blackface stereotype.
