Togo was a Japanese spy in the United States at the start of World War II, who worked with Pruneface. He was a short man with a moustache, who wore eyeglasses.

Ally of PrunefaceEdit

Dick Tracy traced the rental records of Pruneface and Togo's hideout and discovered that the building next door was also being rented by the same person. Tracy and the police raided the building. Pruneface managed to escape but Togo was captured.

NotesEdit

  • Pruneface apparently made a point of keeping his associates separate, so there is no indication that Togo would have had any interaction with Cal Bullet, Clara, or Agent 20.
  • During this storyline, Togo is referred to as a "Jap" by police officers. At the time, the United States was at war with Japan, following Japan's alignment with the Axis powers and the attack on Pearl Harbor. Use of the term "Jap" was commonplace in American culture at the time, though modern readers may find it to be an offensive slur.
