Rocket was the leader of the Rocket Brothers, a trio consisting of him and his two younger brothers.
He later joined the Ouu army and is the fastest runner of it. He also seems to have a sharp sense of hearing, often hearing distant sounds the others cannot.


Rocket is sensible, calm and quite friendly dog.

Even while still working on the bad side, he still has sense of honor and he shows politeness towards elderly dogs and respect towards old soldier Ben. He also doesn't want to kill if it isn't his ordered mission. He also hates it when puppies are killed. Rocket can run really fast.

He respects those who are ready to sacrifice themselves for others but believes such people don't exist anymore. However, his belief is proven wrong by Jerome and he has a change of attitude.
Unlike his brothers, Rocket understood Saburou's last wish and decided to live fighting for others and not only for his own survival.

Rocket is very loyal and caring towards his new comrades and always ready to help.
He dislikes his past self who always ran away and now he is ready to face death for his friends and stay with them until the end.
Though usually calm, Rocket once lost his temper because Rikiya's minions joined the enemy instead of defending their leader.

Ginga Densetsu WeedEdit



Rocket was originally a spy from Hougen's group. Rocket, along with his two brothers, Jet and Missile, went to spy on Weed's pack. At one point, he told some of the pack that Hougen has ten times more soldiers, scaring them away. He blames the Old Dog so he won't get in trouble. The three got in a fight with Jerome, but when he was going to kill the three, Weed interrupted and told the Borzoi brothers to leave. Rocket then realizes Weed's kindness and leaves his brothers to join him. Rocket had a hard time gaining trust from the group, especially Jerome. But, he was finally accepted by him when he saved GB and Weed from being blown off a mountain. After passing the mountains, Rocket then tells the group of a dog named Kyoshiro who might be of help to them. Rocket is from then on an important character in the series.


When Rocket was a puppy, he and his brothers Jet and Missile were abandoned by humans in the mountains in Wakayama. Fortunately for them, they were accepted in the pack lead by a Shikoku, Saburou. Later, the pack was taken over by the two Siberian Huskies Sakon and Ukon, who spent most of their time beating up the Borzoi brothers. One day, the two Huskies had been beaten so badly that Saburō had interfered. Before the old leader got killed, he told the Borzoi Brothers that they have to live a life with a purpose.

Rocket, Jet and Missile later had become runners of Hougen as they thought of him as a stronger dog. When Hougen sends them out on a mission to capture Weed, the three bump into Ben and Cross

However, they did not hurt them and continued their hunt. As they snatched Weed from his pack, GB and the rest of the pack hunt them down. Jerome finds Weed in the clutches of the Borzoi Brothers and fights them. On his defeat, Rocket decides to leave his brothers to join Weed to fulfill his purpose. Rocket had a hard time gaining trust in his pack until he saved Weed and GB from falling to their deaths at the mountain. Later, when he hears from Hook and Sasuke that his brothers were killed by Hougen, he decides to stay with Weed's pack for good to avenge his brothers' deaths.


After the battles against Hougen and the gelada baboon Shougun, Rocket is sent out to find Weed who is on a trip with his love Koyuki. When he has finally found him, he brings the sad news of Hokkaido's leader Hakurou was killed, Hokkaido was conquered by the German Shepherd Victor and Jerome is in danger. Afterwards, he successfully brings Weed and his reinforcements to Hokkaido with the help of the Koga dog Toshimitsu who had escaped from the gorge.

After Hokkaido arc, Rocket helps the wounded saluki mother Mari to get her kidnapped puppies back from the man by acting as the bait while Weed and friends free the kidnapped dogs from the cage.

In Hybrid Bear arc, Rocket was the first dog to figure out and bring news to Weed that there were more than one Hybrid Bears after witnessing a fight between a crocodile and Hybrid Polar bear in the river. Rocket also participated in fighting alongside with Weed and his friends against the Hybrid Bears.

Ginga Densetsu Weed: OrionEdit

Rocket makes an appearance in Ginga Densetsu Weed: Orion as a more minor character. He escapes the mountain from the volcano but is caught along with Gin and the others and sealed in a shed in the mountains. Eventually he is released and meets up with the rest of the army, as well as Weed. Rocket leaps off the cliff to save Andy from falling when he attacks Kurohabaki Masamune, but although he grabs him he falls into the river below with an unknown fate.


  • Rocket is the only main borzoi character in the Ginga series.
