Takafumi Miura is a Japanese sound effects designer/drummer who worked for Data East. He started doing sound for games around 1988. Mostly, he worked on the NES games produced by Data East, and usually worked with Shogo Sakai, Masaaki Iwasaki and Yuji Suzuki. Takafumi says he only did sound effects while working at Data East. Around 1995, Takafumi left the video game business. Takafumi still designs sound and plays drums in a band. He currently plays as the drummer in Gamadelic with some other former Data East composers, and they have done arrangements of their work.

In some games, his name was associated with "Zett". Takafumi says the name comes from his friends at Data East calling him that when he owned a Nissan Z. Looking back, Takafumi says it sounds embarassing. In Rampage, he is credited as Takashi Miura. He says the programmers made a mistake and replaced 'fumi' with 'shi'.
