Shingo Shoji (庄司 慎吾 Shōji Shingo) is a member of the NightKids who drives a red Honda Civic SiR-II (EG6). Shingo races dangerously, he will nudge his rival's car in order to make the other driver lose control if he's unsure about his own chances of winning. He doesn't find plain downhill races any fun, preferring to race against a handicap. In this handicap match, Shingo tapes his right hand to the steering wheel for the duration of the race. By doing this, Shingo limits his own steering capabilities. In terms of racing ability, Shingo is the best driver on the Night Kids team. He is also a childhood friend of Impact Blue's navigator, Sayuki.

Shingo actually shares many beliefs with Takeshi, but whenever they watch other battles, they try to stay away from one another so that people won't mistake them as friends even though in Extra Stage, they acted like buddies. There were also times that he supported his teammate for the Night Kids' sake, like the battle against Seiji Iwaki and his Evo IV.

Trivia

  • In Initial D: Fifth Stage, Shingo appears to have a tan.
  • It might be slightly hinted that he may be a fan of Mugen Motorsports, a Honda car tuning specialist.
  • When he made his first appearance intimidating Iketani's S13, it appears that the Mugen RNR wheels are painted in Metallic Silver. But later in the anime, especially when racing with Takumi in the Gum Tape Deathmatch in Episode 15 of First Stage, his Mugen RNR wheels suddenly became Black with a Red Trim. In the Initial D Arcade Stage video games, his Mugen RNR wheels are again only shown in Metallic Silver.
  • His voice actor in the New Initial D movie, Shuhei Sakaguchi, also voiced Hiroya Okuyama in Fifth Stage.
  • In Battle Stage, his EG6's license plate is 32-145. However, the plate was changed to 46-037 (as seen in Extra Stage, Final Stage, and the Arcade Stage series). This also applies to Mako's Sileighty.
  • Shingo Shoji had a black hairstyle in First, Second, Fourth and Fifth Stage flashback in Initial D, but then his hair changed to brown in Extra, Fifth, Final Stage and the new Initial D movies.
