- "Xiaoyu Ling? Xiaoyu Ling? Wherefore art thou Xiaoyu Ling?"
- — Ganryu's Alisa's Adventures in Rockoland entrance quote.
- "Nothing stops me, not even a bee! Watch as I summon Ganryu the PE!"
- — Asteroid before magically bringing Ganryu to Rockoland.
Ganryu is the PE at Kyoto International School. In Tekken: Blood Vengeance, he said that Ling Xiaoyu destroys something every time she goes to PE. This confirms that he is more serious and strict unlike the Tekken video games. He is not as harsh when he visits Rockoland; however, his serious and strict personality was given to Zekrom during Alisa's Adventures in Rockoland, Monstar in Barney and the Rocko Squad, and Setsuka in Xianghua in Rockoland.
Ganryu is one of the two PE teachers found in Alisa's Adventures in Rockoland. Mamoswine is the other PE teacher.
Ganryu calls every member of the Rocko Squad, with the exception of Evil-Man, a different name. He does the same thing to other characters as well. The names are:
- Rocky (Rock Buddy)
- General (General Salt)
- Principal (Dr. Helper and Anna Williams)
- Mr. Narrator (Asteroid)
- Talking Tortoise (Meteorite)
- Super-Scissors (Scizor)
- Ogre (Shrek)
- Goliath (Spader)
- Trekkie (Vulcan)
- Skrull (Charleston)
- Wally (Orbit)
- Razor (Prim)
- Gordon Crash (Crash Gordon (Alisa's Adventures in Rockoland exclusive))
- Xiaoyu Ling (Ling Xiaoyu (previously used in Tekken: Blood Vengeance))
- DoorBell (DoorMouse (Barney and the Rocko Squad exclusive))
He is similar to Juliet from William Shakespeare's tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, as they are both looking for someone. However, they are looking for different people. Juliet is looking for Romeo, and Ganryu is looking for his PE student - Ling Xiaoyu.
- Juliet says "Romeo? Romeo? Wherefore art thou Romeo?".
- Ganryu says "Xiaoyu Ling? Xiaoyu Ling? Wherefore art thou Xiaoyu Ling?".
In Barney and the Rocko Squad, he is a member of the Never Land Pirates, even though he still has his gym teacher's uniform. He is one of the three Tekken: Blood Vengeance characters to take part in a team from another television show. The other two characters are Nina and Anna Williams.
Like in Tekken: Blood Vengeance, Ganryu is voiced by Paul St. Peter (credited as George C. Cole in Alisa's Adventures in Rockoland) when he visits Rockoland. Although Ganryu isn't featured in Xianghua in Rockoland, his voice actor, Paul St. Peter (as George C. Cole), is still used for Spader's voice, and in The Rocko Squad Meets Pippi, for Dr. Helper's voice.
