Yuuto Kidou (鬼道有人, Kidou Yuuto) (Jude Sharp in the dub) is one of the main characters in the Inazuma Eleven game, manga and anime. He is Haruna Otonashi' older brother. Originally the captain and the strategist of Teikoku Academy, Kidou transferred to Raimon Junior High. He becomes one of its midfielders and strategist, later Inazuma Japan's.
When Kidou and Haruna were young, they lost both their parents in a plane crash and grew up in an orphanage. Kidō was six, while Haruna was five then. The only thing about their parents that Kidō have is an old soccer magazine, which is the only bond that connects him to his father. That's why Kidou started to play soccer. Whenever he kicked the ball, he felt as if he was with his father.
Both Kidou and Haruna were separated to different families: Haruna to the Otonashi; Kidou was immediately recommended by Reiji Kageyama to the Yuuto Financial Group, after he recognized Yuuto's talents for soccer at the age of six.
To bring his sister back, Kidou made a deal with his stepfather: he'll get consecutive National championships in the Football Frontier during his three years in junior high. If he can't win consecutively, Kidou won't be able to take back Haruna. If he loses in a district match, Kidou may be forced to leave his own family.
Ever since they were separated, Kidou have never tried contacting his sister even once, leading her to believe she's in his way. However, it was for Haruna's own sake. In order to live together with her, Kidou could tolerate anything, and he have never forgotten about her not even once.
During Season 3 he had a problem about Kageyama because everything he knew was thought by Kageyama, but in the end it was fixed.
Kidou wears a red cape during season 1 and changed his cape to blue in season 2 but became red again during season 3. He always wears googles which is given to him by Kageyama. His eyes are actually red. His hair is braided.
At first, he was a shady, acting very henchmen-like to Kageyama, listening and obeying to his orders. He begins to become more of the 'good' guy, beginning to realize what kind of man Kageyama is, and going against his orders, searching around the academy for any traps, threatening to reveal them to public. Kidou also seems very logical, as he is a genius game strategist, knowing every important thing there is to know about his potential opponents. Kidō cares for his friends, and more importantly, his sister. He will do anything to help them. Though during sometime he was having an identity crisis saying that he can't escape Kageyama's curse. Kageyama almost tricked him, saying that everything he is now is what he learned from Kageyama, but he was able to surpass this.
