Gaku Yaotome is the leader of the three-man idol group TRIGGER, the main rivals to IDOLiSH7. TRIGGER are veteran idols and were the inspiration for many of the IDOLiSH7 members when they first got into the music industry. Being the son of the president of Yaotome Pro (TRIGGER's talent agency), Gaku is often at the center of gossip and scandals surrounding the idol industry. On the surface, Gaku is the archetypal bad-boy with his rough-spoken manner and an intimidating exterior.

While Gaku plays up a ladies' man act for the public, behind closed doors he is very different. An honest and straightforward friend, Gaku takes his role as TRIGGER's leader very seriously. Despite having a difficult relationship with his father Sousuke Yaotome, Gaku values family connections more than anything else. His womanizing ways are also just for show; in reality, Gaku is somewhat chaste and only pursues women that he truly has feelings for.

In both the game and anime adaptation, Gaku is voiced by Wataru Hatano. Gaku is 22 years old, born on on August 16, making him a Leo. Due to his good looks and his "bad boy with a heart of gold" personality, he consistently tops popularity charts for IDOLiSH7 characters.
