Aagan Iisou (悪冠一色, Arugan Iisou) was one of the Heel stables, in the Dragon Gate and Toryumon Japan promotion. It was formed in September 2003 by "brother" Yasshi and Shuji Kondo as Hagure Gundam (Rogue Corps in English). When Hagure Gundam was joined by Masaaki Mochizuki, it was renamed Aagan Iisou. Mochizuki would later be kicked out of the stable after he and Kondo feuded over who was the leader, and Takuya Sugawara was added to the group. The stable disbanded on August 24, 2008, when Kondo and YASSHI split for the first time in years, with YASSHI for leading his own faction and Kondo started his own called Sukiyaki.

After twelve years Aagan Iisou made a one time only return in a Wrestle-1 event Pro Wrestling Love in Yokohama where Owashi, Kondo, YASSHI were the ones who reunited.

After fifteen years of being fired from Dragon Gate, they made a one-night return part of the Dragon Gate 20th Anniversary Commemoration.

In September 2003, the Italian Collection was divided over the face/heel issue, with Kondo leading the heel side. He would lead the turn, briefly rename to Dotti Shuji and YASSHI return to his old name and soon after Kondo reverted to his real name. Kondo and Yasshi formed a group called Hagure Gundam (Rogue Corps in English) with fellow ItaCon member Shogo Takagi, and Toru Owashi. In 2003 Kondo ordered Yagi to the back to get some bread he baked. While he was backstage, Toru Owashi entered the ring. He made the statement that "sumos don't eat bread", and the three men attacked Yagi, shoving his bread down to his throat. When Hagure Gundam was joined by Masaaki Mochizuki, it was renamed as Aagan Iisou.
