- “You... are a bit of a problem. But I have a solution.” —The Choten
Argus, also known as the Choten, is an antagonist in the Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters series.
The Choten is a charismatic evil genius who seeks to exploit the creature civilizations for his own purposes.
He was one of the greatest Duel Masters ever. But now The Choten is an evil mastermind who wants to rule both worlds. He believes one day The Veil will crumble and creatures will again roam Earth, so he's working to make sure he's in control when that happens. The Choten doesn't duel in the traditional way; he mixes modern tech and alchemy to bend creatures to his will.
The Choten has many allies to help him achieve his objectives, including his protégé Alakshmi and her spooky creature Razorkinder Puppet of Miasma Pit, and his second-in-command, Seneschal, a Water creature whose attitude mirrors The Choten's and who fully believes in his master's work. Even with such powerful allies, The Choten doesn't have a problem dueling when necessary, and is perhaps one of the most dangerous opponents that Ray, Allie, and Gabe may face.
He has appeared in many episodes and tries to steal the civilizations' artifacts. He had succeeded in acquiring all of them at the end of the first season but he was defeated. He has also recently completed his evolution serum, which makes a creature stronger but steals the creature's free will.
