Described by his friends as "the embodiment of goo and shadows", Jinji the Gengar is a mischievous, fun-loving spook who never takes anything too seriously, except when it comes to battle! Originally the persona of one of Pokémon World Online's most famous Admins, Jinji has since taken on a life of his own as the Gengar master of an ever-growing band of Ghosts who treat each other as family; and who enjoy playing pranks, having fun and fooling about both with their hauntings and with each other. They follow Jinji's mantra of Lawful Neutrality and try to act spooky and scary but never actually harm anyone, unless they are a direct threat to themselves or other innocent life.
This site serves as the new online home for Jinji the Gengar; where he and his human handler (not Trainer – Jinji will never be tamed!) will host all the artwork designed for or with him over the years; publish new stories; and expand on the comic universe of Jinji and his many friends – both Ghost and non-Ghost – with new character descriptions, explanations of his canon, and an in-depth look into the many concepts and headcanons that make up the Realm of the Ghosts.

Owing to a recent discovery of an archive of some older works of mine, and a review of content from my DeviantArt page, I’m pleased to announce the addition to the Jinji the Gengar website of three classic works. First off, we have one of my first ever Jinji stories, “The Storm From Nowhere“. This […]
Another fun crossover comic storyboarded by Jinji and drawn by Kumada Panda to celebrate Portal Day 2023, also known as Jinji’s author’s real-life 2023 Birthday. Featuring appearances by all of Jinji, Panda and Kitty The Gengar Queen‘s Ghost Pokémon original characters, and a cameo from Meuka as their advisor.
A brand new story created as part of a role-play between Jinji, Mallow the Garbodor, and Zain, a former PWO player and long-time friend of Jinji’s who formerly role-played as a Dragonite. Originally written as a short-story, the original text of which can be found on the final page, an idea by Kumada Panda led […]
So a good friend of mine from DeviantArt, Ironicatty, told me recently how she’s noticed that everything she draws for herself tends to skew towards a goth or punk style; and she’d like to draw something with a totally different vibe. Well, I’m always one for giving people new ideas; and if you’ve ever read the Origin of Jinji’s Name, you’ll know that one of his original inspirations was the Ninja. So I thought, why not ask her to draw Jinji in the style of a Ninja?
After reading a book on “Diseases of the Human Body” and learning about the common cold, Jinji decides he wants to learn just how easily snot spreads and about its infectious potential. Being a Gengar, however, Jinji has no experience of a cold to draw on to ensure an accurate experiment. Suddenly, he remembers his old idol, and realises that the self-proclaimed Master of Mucus would be the perfect companion to help him ensure an accurate experiment. Thus begins Jinji’s snottiest plot yet…
The Jinji the Gengar website has, as of 17th February 2022, seen a reorganisation of its overall navigation and a rearrangement of some of the stories and comics throughout the site, in order to split the Jinji universe into three distinct canons reflecting the three different directions Jinji and his cast are currently portrayed. All […]
For a number of years now, Jinji’s appearance has remained remarkably consistent in all his appearances in artwork and stories produced both by and for Jinji. Jinji is always a Generation 3-style male Gengar, and even appearances in other forms such as Mega Evolution have been few and far between. But what if that wasn’t […]
Portal Day has come once again, and Jinji and his friends have been getting into the spirit (pun intended 😛) of merriment, celebrating Jinji’s special, once-in-a-year moment in their own special ways. With it comes two brand new Birthday-themed works!
For those looking for a true Birthday blast, check out the Side Stories where you’ll find a brand new comic, “The Sugar Rush!“. Another comic collaboration designed by Kumada Panda based on ideas from Jinji, this hilarious new comic sees Jinji challenged by Phantisserie to collect candy for his Birthday – with an explosive twist!
Or maybe you prefer to see Jinji getting gooey instead? We got you covered. One year to the day of the Ghostly Celebration, Kitty the Gengar Queen has returned the favour with her own hand-drawn artwork. Jinji is presented with a cake by Kitty, only to be caught unawares as Gargantua and the kids start pouring a huge quantity of slime right above them!
Jinji gives thanks […]
A new comic story designed by Kumada Panda based on ideas by Jinji, to celebrate Jinji’s 2022 Birthday. With the assistance of Ghost, Jinji’s friends and family surprise him with a huge jar of sweets… but he’ll need to be quick if he wants to keep them all as Phantisserie sets him a rather explosive […]
A crossover spin-off comic created as another collaboration between Jinji and Kumada Panda, which ironically turned into the longest comic strip ever written by the pair – at 15 pages long – despite having originated as one of Jinji’s simplest ideas. Having been a fan of the Neopets villain Meuka for years, Jinji is surprised […]
