|This article is about a/an villain in Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger.|
Ginis (ジニス Jinisu?) is the Deathgaliens' owner (オーナー Ōnā?), who loves playing with the lives of others. Residing aboard the Deathgalien's spacefaring base, the Sagittari Ark, he oversees the Team Leaders directing their Players to attack Earth while he watches. His cells are embedded in Continue Coins that Nalia uses to grow defeated monsters. He awards a prize to the winner of his Blood Game.
Ginis was informed by Nalia that Earth was within view when the Sagittari Ark arrived at the destination of the 100th Blood Game. Noting that Earth was every bit brimming with life as rumors said, Ginis admired the view of the planet. Commencing the 100th Blood Game, Ginis sent forth the Team Leader Jagged to attack. Ginis would be fascinated to learn that the Earth had warriors known as the Zyuohgers who opposed his onslaught as Jagged was defeated by their hand, sending down Nalia to give Jagged a Continue. The Team Leader was ultimately destroyed by a formation of the Zyuohgers' Zyuoh Cubes.
In response to this development, Ginis noted that Earth was proving to be a suitable choice for the 100th Blood Game. The remaining Team Leaders, Azarudo and Cubaru, echoed his sentiment that the Blood Game needed the excitement of a challenging resistance in light of the easy destructions of their recent stages and prey, and Ginis gave them the task of enacting the Blood Game on Earth in competition with each other, promising a reward to the one who amused him the most. As it turned out, the first to bring forth the anguished suffering of Earth's creatures would be Team Azarudo, represented first by Halbergoi. Ginis would provide a Continue to the Player, who met the same fate as Jagged. This was followed by Bowguns of Team Azarudo which was objected to by Cubaru, who believed that he was entitled for his turn only for Ginis to state that the sole condition of the Blood Game was to provide him with the most amusement.
After a series of defeats from both Players and his commanders, he decided to participate in the Game himself. He introduced himself to Earth, and created a barrier which would erase anything on contact. The barrier would continue to decrease in radius unless the Zyuohgers located the deactivation switch to destroy the barrier. The Zyuohgers found the switch in time, but once the barrier deactivated, the switch transformed into Massacre Machine Gift, a robot Ginis didn't use on other planets often because it made the Game too one-sided in Deathgalien's favor. Gift easily defeated both the Zyuoghers and their mecha.
He sent Nalia in search for Zyumans, and was able to obtain three Zyumans: a Rhino, a Wolf, and a Crocodile. He fused the three Zyumans into a single human named Misao Mondo, creating The World. Ginis sent The World to fight the Zyuohgers, and then called him back before finishing them off as a way of taunting them. After Misao began fighting Ginis's control, Ginis used his Continue Medals on Misao to regain control. It worked, until Yamato Kazakiri was able to get through to Misao and free him completely.
When Bangray arrived to Earth, Ginis found the hunter interesting, and decided to recruit him to the Deathgalien. Bangray tried working with them, but ultimately turned them down, continuing his hunt. Ginis found Bangray's actions on Earth intriguing, and decided to stop his commanders from sending more Players for the time being. Once Bangray was able to locate and lure out his prey, Cube Whale, Ginis launched an all out assault, attacking Bangray, the Zyuohgers, and Cube Whale. This drives Cube Whale into a beserk state, attacking everyone and escaping.
Ginis explained to his followers that with the Blood Game becoming boring, he was intrigued when Bangray arrived on Earth and plotted to capture whatever prey the hunter was after. Ginis gave Nalia a Custom Massacre Machine Gift for her to use to capture Cube Whale. Before the robot was destroyed by Doubutsu Henkei Dodekai-Oh, Ginis ordered Nalia to return with the robot's memory core. She obeyed, and Ginis announced he no longer needed Cube Whale, and that the data from Gift was all they needed.
- to be added
Ginis carries a calm demeanor. He does not care if his commanders' Players ultimately succeed in their plans on destroying Earth: so long as they display an entertaining show for him to watch. He gives the commanders plenty of leeway, allowing them to act without informing him of their plans. Being entertained by the Blood Game is all that matters to him. He does not even view the Zyuohgers or the hunter, Bangray, as a real threat to the Deathgaliens, rather they are just an obstacle or another aspect to making the Game more interesting.
Behind the Scenes
Like with other villains of the series, Ginis shares some similarities with past Sentai Villains.
- His motives for attacking Earth are similar to those of Galactic Empress Meadow from Fiveman.
- His subordinates are grown by a method derived from his cells, much like the Debo Monsters from Kyoryuger.
- His facial features and head sculpt look reminiscent of Juzo Fuwa from Shinkenger.
- He treats the attacks on Earth and making people suffer from them as a game, just like Mikoto Nakadai from Abaranger, and like Kamen Rider series' Jun Shibaura of Kamen Rider Ryuki and N-Daguva-Zeba of Kamen Rider Kuuga.
- His love of drinking wine is also a contributing factor of Mikoto's main drink being wine.
- His design bears a strong resemblance to Invasion Garden Ultimate Form DezumoGevirus.
- His form also bears a strong resemblance to Boss Tau Zant in his first form, from Hurricanegers.
- He has a body similar to Ten Faced Demon Gordos from Kamen Rider Amazon and ten faced demon Llumu Qhimil from Kamen Rider Decade.
