If you’re a die-hard fan of Ginama, surely you’ve heard of Elizabeth. Elizabeth is Katsura Kotaro’s Amanto pet in Gintama. As the series progresses, Elizabeth is shown much more than Katsura’s pet. Elizabeth follows Katsura everywhere in Gintama. They are closer to friends and comrades who are together thick and thin. Elizabeth is fierce to loyal to Katsura Kotarou, which is one of the reasons why Elizabeth is such a unique and charming character. In Gintama, Elizabeth is one of the most mysterious characters.

Tastuma Sakamoto gave Elizabeth as a present to Katsura. Elizabeth is an Amanto (alien) from a distant planet. Elizabeth is shown as a giant white duck or a penguin. Katsura’s righthand man is Elizabeth who is also part of the Joui Rebels. After Katsura, Elizabeth holds the highest position in the Joui Rebel group.

Elizabeth is a very mysterious character who has never spoken. Elizabeth communicates using whiteboards using texts (placards), however, how the texts are written isn’t shown. Katsura dotes on Elizabeth and they are together almost always. Elizabeth’s placards are funny and hilarious sometimes. In running gaps of Gintama, it is often expressed that the guy inside Elizabeth is the director. In one of the episodes of Gintama, Elizabeth was shown with manly hairy legs.

Is Elizabeth a man Gintama? What gender is Elizabeth Gintama?

Elizabeth in Gintama is pretty ambiguous. But Elizabeth is most likely a male gender. There are two Elizabeths in the show. One of them is Eren, the captain of Renho who serves Katsura on the Monday shift. The other Elizabeth is Dragonia, one of the Oukoku princes and brothers of Prince Hata and Barkas.  So Elizabeth is not a man but his gender is male in Gintama.
