Takeshi Santo is a Japanese game developer. He worked for Compile around 1987. Around 1989, Takeshi left Compile and created his own game development studio, Sting, in which other Compile staff followed. He is most likely related to Yasue Santo, who composed music for Psycho Chaser and Override for the PC-Engine.

While working on sound at Compile, he usually worked with their other in-house composer, Masatomo Miyamoto. He is probably best known in the west for his work on The Guardian Legend.
