Yakuza: Like A Dragon is packed full of amusing quests and tasks. Among these are some Part-Time Hero deliveries where Ichiban must help out the Man Awaiting Salvation, who’s stuck in a toilet desperately in need of some Pocket Tissues.
Quests don’t come with much higher stakes, and it’s not the first time the Yakuza series has had us solving these toilet-based quandaries.
Surely no-one could leave a guy in such a predicament, so here’s everything you need to know about the Yakuza: Like A Dragon Pocket Tissues quests.

How to complete the Straight Outta Paper quest
One of the first batches of Part-Time Hero quests is a Special Delivery named Straight Outta Paper. This initial cubicle conundrum is probably the reason you’re here.
Yakuza: Like A Dragon doesn’t actually specify which item is needed, but this is the first time Pocket Tissues are necessary. The quest is found in the toilets of Hamakita Park, where the man trapped in the cubicle will simply exclaim he’s in need of help without saying any more.
For the avoidance of doubt, the Special Delivery: Straight Outta Paper quest is cleared by providing the man in the cubicle with 1 Pocket Tissues item.
Where to get Pocket Tissues in Yakuza: Like A Dragon
There is only one place to find Pocket Tissues in Yakuza: Like A Dragon. Pocket Tissues can be won as a prize in Can Quest, the mini-game unlocked early in the game after completing the A Can-Do Attitude substory in Chapter 3. This happens automatically during the story, so the quest will always be available from this moment onwards. You can return and play this mini-game as many times as you want, which is based in the car park near the homeless area.
A single Pocket Tissues item can be earned by exchanging 200 points. The only way to build these up is to simply keep playing Can Quest. More points can be earned on higher difficulties, and there are some other good prizes to be won here. I actually think Can Quest is one of the most fun mini-games (alongside Dragon Kart!), so hopefully it won’t prove a terrible ordeal.
How many Pocket Tissues do you need in total?
There are five toilet-based Special Delivery quests. The number of Pocket Tissues required to complete them increases every time, so you’ll need to stock up if you want to clear them all.
In total, you will need 21 Pocket Tissues to complete all of the quests. In Can Quest terms, this translates to a total of 4,200 points required.
This isn’t exactly a small number, but Can Quest is a good way of boosting Ichiban’s personality stats so at least there’s some further reward for your efforts. You’ll boost stats by hitting various milestones during Can Quest, and you can also earn some books that provide large boosts to Kindness and Passion.
Can Quest mini-game tips
In order to amass the most amount of points possible, here are some general tips to conquer the Can Quest mini-game.
- Carefully aim for the big bundles of cans – don’t go too fast and miss them
- Get behind the Can Girl as soon as she appears – look out for the green star on the map
- Avoid being hit at all costs, even if you miss out on some cans! Being struck by an enemy rider or the garbage truck will cost you precious time as well as precious cans!
- Save your energy drink until the right time. Either use it to save yourself when it looks like one of the other riders is about to hit you, or use it when you see an opportunity to hit multiple enemy riders in a row
- If you’ve had a great run but still have some time left, there’s no shame turning in early – the last thing you want is to be hit and lose cans or run out of time!
