Naoya Zenin full profile.webp
I'll kill both of them. Tokyo has become a realm of demons now, it doesn't matter when or how people die. I'll work it out after I kill them. After all, I am the head of the Zen'in clan.
~ Naoya upon learning of his clan's successor
You... are not Toji.
~ Naoya Zen'in to Maki Zen'in


Naoya Zen'in is a Special Grade 1 Sorcerer and leader of the Hei, a unit composed of the strongest members within the Zen'in family.

Son of Naobito Zen'in, Naoya was originally meant to succeed his father and become the 27th head of the Zen'in clan, however the state of affairs surrounding Satoru Gojo propelled Megumi Fushiguro to become the eventual heir instead, much to Naoya's discontent.

Weaknesses: Extremely overconfident, often to his own detriment. As a result Naoya has been shown to underestimate the tactical prowess of his opponents. Additionally somewhat of a glass-canon.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Projection Sorcery: By dividing one second into 24 frames, the user sets a predetermined route based on their field of vision that allows them to make 24 movements per second. Granted that the user doesn't outright break the rules of Projection Sorcery, they can drastically increase their speed consequently. Additionally, the user can maintain usage of the Cursed Technique to gradually build up momentum, allowing the user to reach speeds even beyond that of convetional Projection Sorcery.

Projection Sorcery

  • 24 FPS rule: While Projection Sorcery is active, anything that is touched by the user's palm is obligated to follow the 24 FPS rule until the technique is finished. Failure to comply forces the perpetrator to be frozen in frame for exactly one second.

Naoya freezing Choso for 1 second

  • Naoya's knife: Naoya carries with him a concealed knife for the purpose of sneak attacks. Despite generally detesting those who depend on their weaponry, he has still displayed high proficiency while using his weapon, being able to stab the likes of Choso without them noticing.
