Yuuzou Takemura is a male spirit who appears in Fatal Frame IV. He was subject to experimental brain surgery, in an attempt to cure his Luna Sedata Syndrome, which ultimately killed him, Eventually he was dismembered piece by piece to gain more understanding of the effects of the experiment. His remains were left in one of the sinks of the prep room in the hospital.
When fought, he will often complain that his head is hot (頭が熱い atama ga atsuii...).
- The name Yuuzou means "help" (祐) (yuu) and "construct" (造) (zou).
- Yuuzou's surname Takemura means "peak" (嶽) (take) and "village" (村) (mura).
- Yuuzou is one of only two ghosts in the game to show signs of this particular operation, the other being Himiko Kiriya - these ghosts share similar attacks and are much more aggressive than normal spirits, causing more damage as a result.
