—Jin Mo-Ri , to his past life in the Sage Realm, just before obtaining his memories
Jin Mo-Ri (진모리, Jin Mori; "Mori Jin") is the main protagonist of The God of High School. He is introduced as an arrogant, carefree child obsessed with fighting. However his true identity is that of the great God Sun Wukong (The Monkey King), the leader of the Mount Hwagwa Monkey and one of the Nine Kings of the Sage Realm. He cannot be defeated by human beings as he is not human himself. To truly defeat him, another Demon or God would have to do that. One of the Japan Team's shaman member states that his future and as well his death could not be foreseen. As of late, his True Form power is above his grandfather.

He is of average height and has an athletic build. He is usually seen wearing a sleeping-mask on his head like a pair of sunglasses. His eyes are black with a golden, glowing spot in the center that turns into a cross or cross-hairs that runs to the edge of his black irises when he gets riled up or excited in some way.
When he is awakened he wears tiger skin clothes and has a winged band around his head which weakens him. His eyes are blue with a black spot in the center that turns into a cross or cross-hairs that runs to the edge of his blue irises. Being used to be imprisoned in the Eight Trigrams Jail and gaining power from his subordinates turned his irises red, something that he regained after his training in The Skyscraper.
