Dan Mori is a student at Apricot Flower High School, a school that stratifies based Charyeok talents, 17 years after RagnarÖk. He is one of the "failures" (untalented in Charyeok) and placed in Camellia Class. It is implied that he's one of the two 'candidates' (people with Jin Mori's characteristics and hunted by the world government) in his area.

It is then revealed that he is Jin Mori, who reduced himself to a small boy in order to atone for his sin (crippling her left leg) to Dan Ahan.

Appearance

Dan Mori is a young man in his late teens, of medium height and an athletic physique (muscular but very thin), who grows a little more corpulent over time. The upper part of his body, especially his arms, shoulders and pecs, are full of small and large scars, which look like cuts (some in the shape of an X).

He has a childish face (which has been described as cute on several occasions) with big and round black eyes with yellow pupils and has tousled hair of deep blue-green color. When he is enraged, his eyes turn red and his pupils turn gold and cross-shaped.

When he uses all his power, he temporarily returns to his previous appearance as Jin Mori, with dark brown hair that is slightly longer and disheveled, and more adult facial features, with slightly smaller eyes.

After the recovery of his sister, he cuts his hair, leaving it much shorter (although it eventually grows back to how it was before) and showing a long horizontal scar on his forehead.

At first he wears an a black long sleeve t-shirt with another short-sleeved gray t-shirt on top, orange sweatshirt with jeans and orange sneakers. As time goes by, his clothes look more and more like how he was before.

After the preliminaries of the GOH tournament, Mori once again uses his characteristic dark-green sleeping-mask on his head, like a pair of sunglasses. During the GOH tournament, Mori also wears a black sweatshirt with a floral print on the hood with a red shirt over it and another piece of blue clothing around his waist, simulating the fur of the yongpyo.

During her battle with Park Ilpyo, Mori wears a white strapless T-shirt. Before starting his chase of Park Mubong, Mori completely reverts to his previous look. White baggy short-sleeved T-shirt, blue baggy pants, red boots and another piece of blue-gray clothing around his waist with the sleeping-mask in his head.

Personality

Dan Mori is a cheerful and optimistic boy. He's also fairly analytically critical, shown when he pondered on the 'history' of Ragnarok. He's close to his sister and looks out for her. He also protects his sister in his own way, mainly by reminding her to take her drugs and working hard to get money for his sister. Although he made himself forgot everything about his past life in order to live with Ahan, it is implied that he was aware of some of it since time ago.

During the GOH tournament post-Ragnarok, it was revealed that Dan Mori was a mask used by Jin Mori as a way to hide from the pain of losing his grandfather. After his fight with Jung Mori, Dan Mori soon started to accept his true identity while still caring for Ahan. During the course of the GOH tournament, Mori understands how to control better his power and discovers how important and fun fighting can be depending on technique rather than physical power, he is frustrated to discover that he is now weaker than Mori Hui (his clone) and is embarrassed by these thoughts but has decided to use this as a way to improve himself through skills. Using this Dan Mori, became far more tactical in battle and more accepting of his weaknesses.

He has matured a lot mentally and emotionally, recognizing his own stupidity in underestimating and mocking Garuda's powers, which indirectly was the main cause of his betrayal. At the same time he continues to maintain a certain pride as Jin Mori that prevents him from recognizing that he has become weaker than those he has defeated (or could have defeated) previously such as Han Daewi and Satan, making silly excuses for not acknowledging his defeat, showing that deep down he is still a sore loser.

Despite this bid on self-improvement though, Dan Mori still has an intense hatred for Park Mubong to the point where he will even sacrifice himself and others in his bid to kill him. This rage has lead him to nearly killing a host of people during his first battle against the World Government and the deaths of some Generation X members. Although they become enemies, he still appreciates Dean as a friend and disciple.

He wholeheartedly respects people like his little sister and, believing that her willpower is far superior to his strength as god. In fact, Dan Ahan is not just his little sister, she is the reason he is still alive and the person who teaches him what true strength is. She is perhaps the only person who can break his "brave face" (when he discovers that she is seriously ill) or make Mori cry (when she recovers from her illness).

He also highly values ​​Mori Hui (and Jung Mori), recognizing him as someone who was more impressive than himself although he was his clone and believing that he was more original than anyone.

Unlike when he was Jin Mori, Dan Mori seems to have completely accepted the fact that he is Sun Wukong, deciding not to hide from his past and his sins anymore.

The possible resurrection of Maitreya is a source of great concern and fear for Mori, since he knows that he will not be able to defeat him as he is currently. These thoughts turn out to be very true when Mori is defeated by Maitreya with relative ease, filling Mori with a great urge to be more powerful in order to take revenge and protect his loved ones.

He seems to have developed a certain respect and affection for Satan after his combat with Maitreya, seeing him as someone the same as he was before he met Sanzang, and recognizing him as the strongest. Mori is grateful to him for teaching him never to give up, even when fighting someone much more powerful than himself. This renewed determination helps Mori rebuild her dragon armorsuit to its original state.

He seems to be totally used to and unfazed by the death and suffering of countless people, gods and demons as long as they don't have a strong bond with him, this is due to his long life experience as a demon who has participated in (and started) several wars, but this may be because he does not usually show his anger, but accumulates it to release it in front of those who cause it.

He is surprisingly weak to sincere praise and admiration from others showing embarrassment and unaccustomed.

History

Main article: Jin Mori

After Park Mubong betrayed Jin Mori and his grandfather, Jin Mori lost control over his godly power, accidentally killing Dan Ahan's parents and crippling her leg. Jin Mori, remembering his late grandfather's last wishes, reverted into a child and began living among humans again as Dan Mori, elder brother of Dan Ahan.

However, Dan Mori commented that the damage from using Nabong Needle Ryu's limiter removal x250.000 with The Monkey King Mode took a toll on his body that hasn't been recovered since 17 years ago. In addition, Dan also suspected that the grail still sealed his power, preventing him from using his power to the fullest. Still, even without most of his power as the Supreme God, Dan Mori commands fearsome power that allows him to easily defeat most, if not all of the G.O.H. Participants, despite the increased standard compared to the pre-RagnarÖk era. After he fought Jung Mori for the last time and fully activate his remaining divine power, Han Dae-Wi noted that He has almost reached his peak during RagnarÖk.

Three teenagers his age try to lift it up, but it wouldn't even budge.[1] His strength is so great, Dan Ah-An beat other students that tried to bully him in order to prevent Dan Mori from crippling them.[5] Xiao Chen, while disguised as Ji Seokjin observed that Dan Mori's grip actually injure her hand. After grasping the basics of how to use his physical power in combat, he quickly defeated most of the preliminary contestants.[4] His punches topple the piece of Ruyi Jingu Bang in Jung Mori's possession.[6] After regaining his memory and some of his power as the monkey king, Dan Mori's strength become so great, that a light tap from him while being agitated caused a small building to crack violently.[7]

  • Analytical Skill: Dan Mori exhibited some analytical skill, purposefully toppling Jung Mori's piece of Ruyi Jingu in order to trigger an avalanche and double K.O. both of them.[10]. Since recovering his memories, he exhibited analytical skills beyond even his previous life as Jin Mori. He quickly discerns weaknesses and abilities in Charyeok users, even one that he barely sees.
  • Superhuman Healing Factor: Dan Mori stated that he heals much faster than common humans (more than 100 times faster). In fact, it was so fast that injuries that supposed to be healed in 3 to 4 months, healed in less than a day. [11]
  • Fiery Eyes and Golden Pupils: At some moments, particularly when he's unleashing the remnants of his godly strength, he regained this eyes.
  • True Form: When more power is needed, Dan Mori is able to utilize his true form for a brief period of time, which is referred to as his "Jin Mori state". While in this state, he gains considerable strength and speed as shown when he was able to fight evenly with Dean while the former used Yongpyo in both its speed and power augmentations. Once he mastered the Recoiless Renewal technique, he was able to overwhelm even members of The Six in this form such as Il-Pyo Park.

Martial Arts

Prior to truly re-embracing his identity as Jin Mori and the Monkey King, Dan Mori mainly copied Jung Mori's techniques. When he regained his identity, it can be presumed that he has access to all the techniques he learned in his previous life with the exception of Nabong Needle Ryu's limiter removal as Mori himself stated he lost this ability when he overused it in his battle with 666:Satan.
