These days, there are angry ghosts all around us - dead from wars, sickness, starvation - and nobody cares. So you say you're under a curse? So what? So's the whole damn world.
~ Jigo to Ashitaka.
Well, I give up. Can't win against fools.
~ Jigo

Jigo is the secondary antagonist of Princess Mononoke. He was a mercenary who wanted to sell the Forest Spirit's head to the Emperor for money.

He was voiced by Billy Bob Thornton, who also played Willie Stokes in Bad Santa, Jack in Puss in Boots, and Lorne Malvo in Fargo.


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.
