Kageno Jin (影野(かげの) (じん)) was a defender for Raimon. People don't usually notice him because of his dark aura. His teammates revere him, but he is always willing to help them.

Kageno's skin is fair. He has waist-length, straight, light purple hair that always obscures his eyes which makes him look like a ghost. He is also one of the tallest members of the team. He wears the standard Raimon soccer uniform.


Kageno is very kind, quiet, and helpful but also a little shy, gloomy, scary, and depressive. He has an eerie aura around him, and is very self-conscious about his presence. When many people look at him, he immediately becomes flattered. Most people are scared of him because he suddenly comes when they least expect it, but they still care for him.


Season 1

Kageno joined the Raimon Soccer club because he wanted his presence to be more appreciated. The team then faced a challenge from Teikoku Gakuen and later Occult.

When Natsumi opened the secret training ground, they entered it and he and Kabeyama were shot at by a laser beam. Fortunately for them, it missed. After Domon joins the team, he is mostly seen on the bench, but replaced him during the match against Teikoku Gakuen in the district finals after Domon got injured. Kageno got mentored by a member of the original Inazuma Eleven, Ukishima, who made him realize that just because he's a reserve and does not huddle up with others, it doesn't mean he isn't involved in hissatsu techniques. This realization allowed him to help Kazemaru and Gouenji master Honoo no Kazamidori.

He and the team went to nationals and fought Zeus. Before the match, Endou tried several things to master Majin The Hand, including dugging his head into a bucket full of water to strengthen his lungs. Jin noticed this and suggested him to strengthen his breathing. They had the match in episode 25 and at first it seemed one-sided because of a secret they kept that enhanced their physical abilities. Kageno and Domon used Coil Turn and Killer Slide respectively, but they both failed to steal the ball back. They eventually won and after they won the trophy, Kageno made sneaky attempts to hold the trophy in the first episode of the next season.

Season 2

After they fought Aliea Gakuen's Gemini Storm, Kageno was injured along with some of his teammates and was unable to join the Inazuma Caravan. Later, he and the rest of the injured members from the original Raimon team turned to the Aliea Meteorite and formed the Dark Emperors. He helped Sugimori stop Gouenji's Bakunetsu Storm with Dual Smash. Later, after realizing what they did was wrong, they came back to their senses.

Season 3

He wasn't picked for the selection but he still trains along with the old Raimon team and cheers for Inazuma Japan. He later played in the last match between Raimon and Raimon. He was able to steal the ball from Touko, by scaring her.

Inazuma Eleven GO Chrono Stone

He only appeared at the end of episode 50 when Tenma and his team traveled to the moment when Raimon won the Football Frontier in order to have a friendly match with them.

Inazuma Eleven Reloaded

After Raimon won the Football Frontier he was seen holding the trophy, with the others watching over it. They headed back to school, where they were congratulated by the others, even Kageno managed to get the attention of some people. Hibiki suggested them to have a practice match against Spain's team, Barcelona Orb. Kageno didn't play in the match, but he stayed on the bench watching the others. In the end, Raimon lost 0-13, with everyone on the field being fatigued. The president of Japan's Soccer Association told them they had to disband and transfer to other schools in order to strengthen Japan's soccer. Like the rest of his teammates, he was shocked and disappointed about the news, stating that he believed the concept was impossible.

Inazuma Eleven Orion no Kokuin

In the last episode, the reformed Raimon team was ready to have a match with Inakuni in the Football Frontier Autumn Tournament. However, he couldn't be seen because he was on the bench.
