Jigo is the secondary antagonist of Studio Ghibli's 10th full-length animated feature film, Princess Mononoke. He was a mercenary who wanted to sell the Forest Spirit's head to the Emperor for money.
In Whole Hog Theatre's stage productions, he was portrayed by Jack Gyll.
A member of a mysterious organization, Shishou Ren, Jigo wants to steal the head of the Forest Spirit, which is said to give eternal youth, and sell it to the Emperor to be paid handsomely. He made a deal with Lady Eboshi to help him kill the Forest Spirit, though he was just using her. After stealing it's head, Jigo attempted to escape it, but Ashitaka and San confronted him and gave the Forest Spirit back it's head.
