Ogi Zenin (禪院 (ぜんいん) (おうぎ) Zen'in Ōgi?) is an antagonist in the Jujutsu Kaisen series. He is the brother of Naobito Zenin and father of Maki and Mai Zenin. Ogi serves as one of the antagonists of the Perfect Preparation Arc.


Ogi is a tall man with a Roman nose and long, black hair slicked back into a high ponytail. His eyes appear fully black, giving the impression of black sclera, but they are shown to be white when they widen upon being reminded of Toji. Ogi's attire consist of a white shitagi, a white kosode and dark hakama with white socks.


"Children must not hold back their parents."

Ogi was a resolute but very self-centered man who put little value on his immediate family. He cared only about his own status within the Zenin clan. He disliked being mocked and even attacked his nephew Naoya Zenin for being excessively disrespectful.[1]

He has a very cynical, traditionalist mindset. Ogi didn't seem to have any real respect for his wife and had no compassion for his children whatsoever. This stems from the fact that Maki and Mai were born untalented in the realm of jujutsu.

Ogi leaving his twin daughters for dead.

Apparently, Ogi has only ever been perceived as inferior to Naobito in one fact, the quality of their children. Ogi believes his daughters were the reason he wasn't chosen to become head of the family. He doesn't value them at all and even resents both of them. In order to gain favor with the jujutsu higher-ups, he volunteered to frame his own children and execute them personally.[2]

After attacking his own daughters, Ogi was only brought to tears by the recollection that he was unable to achieve this goal.[3] Ogi even stated that children shouldn't hold their parents back and tried to leave the girls for dead, calling them a stain on his life.[4]



Ogi's twin daughters Maki and Mai were born before or around the time that Naobito was selected as the 26th head of the Zenin Family. The two were deemed as failures by the Zenins, and because of this Ogi was not chosen as head.

Itadori's Extermination Arc

Ogi waits with Naoya and Jinichi for an update on Naobito.

Ogi is with Jinichi Zenin in one of the rooms of the Zenin household when Naoya walks in. Naoya says that he'll become the next clan leader while insulting Ogi and Jinichi in the process, who attacks him. After a short scuffle, Furudate walks in and announces the clan leader, Naobito Zenin passing. Ogi listens as Furudate reads Naobito's will, revealing that, in the case of Satoru Gojo's disappearance, Megumi Fushiguro is to become the next clan leader.[5]

Perfect Preparation Arc

Ogi conspires with other clan members to execute Megumi, Maki, and Mai.

Ogi was waiting in the Zenin family cursed warehouse as Maki arrived. He reveals there are no cursed tools as he stands next to an injured Mai. Ogi decided that he will execute his daughters and Megumi, to strengthen the trust between him and the higher-ups.

Ogi uses Falling Blossom Emotion to fight Maki. Maki manages to brake his blade in the initial exchange but when she whipped around, he turned before her and cut her down, breaking her Dragon-Bone sword. He then slashes and downs Maki, claiming the reason he couldn't became the head of the clan, was because his children are worthless.[6]

Ogi is killed by Maki.

He berates both Maki and Mai, dragging them to the training room and throwing them into a pit of cursed spirits to be killed.[7] However, Mai gives her life to create a weapon for Maki and remove her cursed energy completely, allowing her to slay the cursed spirits and emerge thanks to her now achieving the same superhuman physical abilities as their cousin, Toji Fushiguro.[8]

Noticing the sudden disappearance of the cursed spirits, Ogi would then see Maki emerge from the room with Mai's body. Upon seeing his daughter, Ogi is immediately filled with the same dread he felt from Toji. He then draws his sword and activates his innate technique to fight her once again, but she quickly slices his head in half and kills him.[9]

Abilities and Powers

Ogi successfully counters Maki and defeats her in their duel.

Overall Skill: Ogi is ranked special grade 1[10] and believes himself to be equal to Naobito in terms of ability as a sorcerer.[11] In a straightforward honest one-on-one duel with Maki, Ogi was able to overcome her original heavenly restricted physical prowess with his skill in jujutsu. Ogi believed Maki's strength was nothing special when compared to sorcerers that reinforce their muscles with cursed energy.[12] Doing so to his own body allowed Ogi to move incredibly fast in a 180-degree motion. Ogi was able to turn around completely and slashed Maki down in one motion, instantly defeating her.[13]

When facing Maki after she gained power similar to Toji's, Ogi immediately went all out with his cursed technique. However, he was no match for Maki and was effortlessly cut down.[14]

High Tactical Intellect: It was Ogi's idea to frame Megumi, Maki, and Mai for trying to unseal Satoru Gojo, displaying his devious and calculating mind. He predicted Maki would return to the Zenin clan for weapons and emptied the cursed warehouse of all cursed tools ahead of time. His caution also led him to think ahead and leave Maki incapacitated to use as a hostage in case his duel with Maki went sideways.[15]

Expert Swordsmanship Specialist: Ogi wields a katana and swordplay is his main form of combat. He excels at single-strike attacks, able to unsheathe his blade and attack in an instant. When disrespected by Naoya, Ogi was able to have his blade at his nephew's throat moments later.[16] He was also more than willing to engage Maki in a single-strike duel.[17] However, Ogi considers himself a sorcerer over a swordsman and reinforces his swordplay with his cursed technique.[18] After Maki broke his blade, Ogi replaced his katana with the flames of his Blazing Courage technique.[19]


Cursed Energy Manipulation
Great Cursed Energy: The Zenin Family values cursed energy and the capacity to use powerful techniques more than anything else. As a special grade 1 sorcerer, Ogi naturally has relatively large amounts of cursed energy for a sorcerer. His talent for jujutsu allows him to use secret barrier techniques in addition to his innate technique.
Innate Technique
Blazing Courage.png Blazing Courage ( (しょう) 眉之 (びの) (きゅう) Shōbi no Kyū?): This technique allows the user to eject flames from their weapon. Ogi uses this technique with his katana, being capable of both ejecting fire to replace the broken blade[20] and intensifying it to make the flames deadlier.[21]
Barrier Techniques
Ogi using Falling Blossom Emotion.png Falling Blossom Emotion ( (らっ) () (じょう) Rakka no Jō?): Normally employed as an anti-domain countermeasure, this technique can also be applied to swordplay. Not only does it shroud Ogi in cursed energy, but his katana is as well. This allows the blade to automatically strike anything the cursed energy comes into contact with.[22]


Semi-Cursed Tools
Ogi threatens Naoya.png Katana: Ogi carries a katana along with himself all the time. He is able to use this in combination with his cursed techniques. During the clash against his daughter, the katana blade was broken. However, he was able to replace the broken blade with his Blazing Courage technique.[23]
