Thinking of their face, whispering "I love them" under your breath, feeling, in the depths of your chest, a warmth, and yet a tightness... That's what love is, isn't it?
~ Mutsuki talking about Ken Kaneki/Haise Sasaski.
Sensei, you've become very strange. Come back. I will remove everything that stands in your way.
~ Mutsuki attempting to convince his teacher to come home.

Tooru Mutsuki is one of the main characters of Tokyo Ghoul:re. Initially appearing as one of the main protagonists, he later became a major antagonist for the rest of the series until his redemption. He is a former member of the CCG, in which he served as part of the Quinx Squad under Haise Sasaki.

He is voiced by Natsumi Fujiwara in Japanese and Mikaela Krantz in English.


Mutsuki recalling his past of murdering his family.

Mutsuki was initially a shy, but kindhearted person. Because of his lack of confidence, he often felt rather discouraged, almost as if he was nothing to the team. Despite this, he did his best to serve his team and help out those in need. He admires his fellow teammates, but the one member he looks up to the most is his mentor, Haise Sasaki. Because of Sasaki's kindness and assurance, Mutsuki has looked up to him greatly.

Mutsuki's descent into insanity.

After his torturous experience with the ghoul, Karao Saeki, Mutsuki fell into complete insanity. His love for Haise Sasaki transformed into an unhealthy obsession for him. He later proceeds to repeatedly stab what he believes to be his mentor, he then cradles with his corpse and presumably rapes him.

He will go out of his way to reclaim his former mentor as his own, including attempts at murdering his wife on multiple occasions, kidnapping a friend of her's and threatening to execute her. He has even gone far to say that as long as Sasaki is with no one, he doesn't care what happens.

After rescuing Kaneki, Urie helped Mutsuki learn the error of his ways. While he feels greatly ashamed of what he's done, Urie suggests that he should ultimately confront Kaneki in person, as he might never get another chance to do so.

Powers and Abilities

Mutsuki's full potential .

Mutsuki was originally a regular human, but after having his body genetically modified, he has become a Quinx, in which he is capable of producing his own kagune. His powers include:

  • Bikaku Kagune: Like a ghoul, Mutsuki can create a Bikaku Kagune that he can use to block attacks and provides good striking force. Originally, he only had one, but after his experience with Torso, he has been able to create several of them.
  • Kagune Detachment: Mutsuki has shown that he is capable of detaching fragments of his kagune and use them as dagger knives.
  • Superhuman Durability: As part of his Quinx physiology, Mutsuki can take hard hits without taking critical damage.
  • Regenerative Healing Factor: Due to his enhanced modifications, Mutsuki is able to heal his wounds in a matter of seconds.
  • RC Control: Mutsuki has managed to control the amount of RC cells in his body, making it easy for him to get passed through standard detection of RC cells.

In addition to his abilities, Mutsuki has trained in the ways of martial arts, in which he has learned how to wield and throw daggers by Juuzou Suzuya.
