Married to Elisabeth and currently the 1st Division Captain of the [[Shinsengumi 真選組|Shinsengumi]], Okita Sougo (沖田 総悟) was a trainee at [[Kondou Isao 近藤 勲 |Kondou's]] dojo in his youth and one of the best swordsmen there before joining the force where he is also recognized as one of the best, if not the best, swordsman in the Shinsengumi. Fiercely loyal to Commander Kondou, he pretended to defect to [[Itou Kamotarou 伊東 鴨太郎 | Itou Kamotarou]]'s camp in order to stay by his commander to ensure his safety.

Acknowledged as the ''bishounen'' (美少年, aka 'beautiful youth') of the series, [[Sakata Gintoki 坂田 銀時| Gintoki]] took a mug-shot of him attempting to slice up [[Shimura Shinpachi 志村 新八| Shinpachi]] and sent it off as Shinpachi's photo in the [[Pen-pal Chapter]], explaining that he 'looked better' than Shinpachi. Belying the innocent-looking good looks however is an insanely sadistic person who delights in chaos and is always trying to 'kill' his Vice-Commander [[Hijikata Toushirou]].

'''Okita Sougo''' ( 沖田 総悟, Okita Sōgo ) is the 1st Division Captain of the [[Shinsengumi]], and was a trainee at [[Kondou Isao]]'s dojo in his youth. He is the younger brother of [[Okita Mitsuba]] who raised him after their parents passed away. He is recognized as the best swordsman in the Shinsengumi and takes pride in his job to lead the vanguard as to open a path for the Shinsengumi.
In the original Japanese manga he likes to end his sentences in '~desaa' and "~desuzee'. Sorachi originally designed Okita as a female, and wielding an umbrella, but had to change it to a male since only men are allowed in the Shinsengumi<ref>{{GinVol|vol-no= 6'| others="Naked Sorachi" |pg-no= 106}}</ref>.

During his childhood, Sougo's parents passed away, leaving his older sister, Okita Mitsuba, to raise him by herself in their home village. She herself admits later that she spoiled him because of their parents' death, which caused him to be aloof and distant. Because of this, he never had many friends, until he caught the eye of [[Kondou Isao]] who took him in as a trainee into his dojo. He grew fond of Kondou and still highly respects him.
Because of this personality trait he never had many friends, but that was until he caught the eye of [[Kondou Isao]] who took him in as a trainee into his Dojo. He grew fond of Kondou and the dojo and still highly respects him.
 
   
However, after a new student, [[Hijikata Toushirou]] joined the dojo, Sougo became more distant, feeling that Hijikata was taking over Kondo's attention and favoring Hijikata over him. Sougo noticed that Hijikata had grown a close friendship with Kondou and Mitsuba, this accompanied by his arrogant attitude at the dojo caused Sougo to hate Hijikata with a great passion.

Sougo noticed that Hijikata had grown a close friendship with Kondou and Mitsuba, and this (accompanied by his arrogant attitude at the dojo) caused Sougo to hate Hijikata with a great passion.
   
A few years later Sougo along with the other Dojo students set off for Edo and subsequently set up the Shinsengumi. Okita Mitsuba wanted to go with Sougo to watch over him and to be with Hijikata. However after Hijikata rejected Mitsuba's request that she wanted to follow him (out of knowledge that the path he has chosen may cause him to lose his life at any time) This just fueled the fire for the hatred Sougo has for Hijikata and ever since he has undergone numerous murder attempts on Hijikata, from Voodooism, slashing with a sword, to shooting him with a bazooka. He always misses though so it's unknown if he truly wants him dead or just likes threatening him and getting him hurt every so often. He fully understands Hijikata's feeling towards his sister and the reason why Hijikata rejects his sister, but hates him none the less.

[[File:Sougo1.png|thumb|Sougo when young and now, from [[Episode 87]]]]A few years later, Sougo, along with the other Dojo students, set off for Edo and subsequently set up the Shinsengumi. Okita Mitsuba wanted to go with Sougo to watch over him and to be with Hijikata. However, after Hijikata rejected Mitsuba's request to follow him (out of knowledge that the path he chose could cause him to lose his life at any time), Sougo has held a grudge against him. This grudge is additionally fueled by his goal to take over as vice-commander of the Shinsengumi.

==Appearance==
Okita Sougo appears to be a mild-featured young man with light brown hair and reddish brown eyes. He wears the standard Shinsengumi uniform, and is barely seen without it. When resting he wears a distinctive red sleep mask with eye markings.
+
Okita Sougo appears to be a mild-featured young man with short, light brown hair and red-brown eyes. He has an almost-childlike innocent face as well as full lips and is often described as handsome. During the Correspondance arc, his picture is used to create the impression that 'Shinpachi' is attractive, and at one point, it is said that his good looks are all he has.
   
{{Gallery_okita-sougo}}
+
He wears the standard Shinsengumi uniform. Like all Shinsengumi captains, he wears a white cravat around his neck, tucked into a black vest with a yellow lock. His dark, unbuttoned jacket (reaching to the thigh with a collar) is decorated with gold buckles, buttons, and triangular-shaped cuffs. His black trousers are supported by a brown belt with a silver buckle. At the left hip is tied his sheath, holding his katana. He also wears black, heavy boots with a small heel.

  +
When resting, or skipping work, he wears a distinct red[[Wikipedia:Blindfold| sleep mask]] with eye markings. He carries it around with him and is rarely seen without it. It has a black border and red painted interior, decorated with wide-open eyes with straight lashes.
   
| personality=
+
During the events of the Dekoboko Arc, he switched genders due to a curse and was seen in his female form. Shinpachi describes the gender-swapped Sougo as a "Grade A beauty, as expected." Later during the arc, he wears a yellow short kimono and thigh high tabi black socks.
   
Sadistic streak, as seen, for example, when he collared and chained up [[Urara うらら|Urara]] on a metal leash in a 'M' playing role (aka masochistic).

  +
  +
==Personality==
  +
Sougo's most prominent trait is his sadistic nature, an example of this being his collaring and chaining up Urara with a metal leash for an "S&M" (sadistic & masochistic) play. Hijikata even goes as far as calling him the King of the Planet of Sadists in episode 20. Although he is known as a sadist, he is extremely submissive to his sister, Okita Mitsuba, shown in his respectful way of speaking to her and the way he kneels before his sister to apologize. In episode 35, however, Sougo fell of a roller-coaster and admitted in his panic that his sadism stems from his insecurity.  
  +
  +
He is shown to have evil intentions behind any good thing he does, and is very blunt about his dislike towards other people, especially to Hijikata. Despite this, Sougo is usually protective of the ones he cares for, such as his sister, Okita Mitsuba, and his commander, Kondou Isao (although Sougo repeatedly calls him Gorilla); when an official insults Kondou, Sougo draws his sword to kill him before being stopped by Hijikata. Additionally, he is unexpectedly sensitive to others' feelings when it truly counts, often saving his comrades' lives in battles and even taking on burdens for [[Rokkaku Kirie|other people]].
  +
  +
Sougo's ambition is to become the vice-commander of the Shinsengumi, and as such, he regularly attempts to usurp Hijikata of the position through various methods, ranging from framing him for murder (when he shoots Matsudaira and places the gun in Hijikata's hand with the intention of making it look like the vice-commander had been the one to shoot), to harming or even "killing" Hijikata. His attempts appear real enough that Hijikata was afraid he would get killed during the Shinsengumi Death Game arc. In spite of this, Sougo has respect for Hijikata and even considers him to be one of his 'three rotten friends' (the other two being Kondo and Sakata Gintoki). He also has a similar rivalry with Kagura of the Yorozuya, and the two often get in meaningless competitions over the smallest of situations.
  +
  +
In general, Sougo acts aloof and disinterested most of the time and is most often seen with a blank, deadpan expression on his face. Though he often acts lazy and slacks off on his jobs, he is very attentive when needed and does not hesitate to kill or cut down his enemies. He is also very observant and aware of political movements, as he is often the one explaining situations to the Yorozuya. Both Nobume and Kamui have stated that Sougo has the eyes of a killer, yet he doesn't wish for innocent people to walk the path he has taken and be stained by blood. This is particularly evident in the Rokkaku arc, where he would rather take the blame and hatred of the daughter of the Rokkaku owner than let her know the cruel truth of her father's death. Additionally, in Episode 27, he shows distaste towards the Rengokukan fighting ring and enlists the Yorozuya to help him shut it down.
  +
  +
==Strength & Abilities==
  +
Skills
  +
*'''Increased Strength''': Kondo Isao once stated that Sougo was one of the best fighters in his dojo. His combat skills are at a lower level than Hijikata, but he rarely loses to him. He was able to cut a car in half with a single strike, and destroy concrete pillars supporting a building during his fight with Imai Nobume.
  +
*'''Master Swordsmanship Specialist:''' Shinpachi mentioned that Sougo is a genius swordsman and the strongest in Shinsengumi. He has shown incredible strength with his sword during the Rokkaku Arc, eradicating many Jouishishi members while deflecting sniper bullets with only two swords. He destroys an entire concrete building in the Baragaki Arc and was also able to fight squarely with Kamui during the Shogun Assassination Arc, managing to inflict many grave injuries.
  +
  +
Items
  +
*'''[[Wikipedia:Katana|Katana]] model Kiku-Ichimonji RX-78 :''' Sougo carries a katana, a traditional Japanese sword. The handle is decorated with typical braid tsukaito. His katana has a built-in MP3 player, and the blade can cut through even rock.
  +
  +
*'''The scabbard with his Kikumonji katana''' : [[File:Sougo's Sword Episode 334.jpg|thumb|Sougo's Scabbard]] His katana is sheathed within his scabbard called Saya, a sword Amanto from the star Excalliber. He found Saya in a pawnshop in New York and bought her. Excalliber-ians have one large eye, fringed with long eyelashes.
  +
  +
*'''Shinsengumi [[Wikipedia:Bazooka|Bazooka]]''' : Sougo can often be seen with a bazooka, which he uses to shoot not only opponents but also Hijikata.
   
 
==Relationships==
 
==Relationships==
[[Okita Mitsuba]]: Very attached to his older sister Okita Mitsuba, who brought him up from a young age when both were orphaned. He speaks with courtesy in her presence instead of his usual slang peppered with scatological references. For example, he kneels and begs for her forgiveness when she gently tells him off for bullying [[Yamazaki]] on her arrival at the [[Locations_%26_Settings#Shinsengumi Headquarters 真選組屯所| Shinsengumi HQ]].
+
===Mentor===
  +
*'''[[Kanchou]]''': In childhood, Sougo often came to his dojo to practice. During a sword exercise (where students would swing a heavy piece of wood), he praised Sougo as a genius, before discovering a few seconds later that he was being tricked, after which he proceeded to scold Sougo.
   
[[Kondou Isao]]: Kondou is the only one who he is loyal to.
+
===Family===
  +
* '''[[Okita Mitsuba]]''': [[File:Okita group.jpg|thumb|Sougo his sister Mitsuba in [[Episode 86]]]] Sougo is very attached to his older sister Okita Mitsuba, who brought him up from a young age when both were orphaned. He always speaks to her with great respect in contrast to his typical attitude towards everybody else. He has made wrong decisions for what he believed was for her sake; despite knowing that Mitsuba's fiance, Toma Kuraba, was a Joui rebel, he at first pleaded that Hijikata spare Toma, as Mitsuba was dying from a lung disease, and he wanted to her to experience happiness before she passed. But after learning that Toma was only using her as a bargaining chip to his advantage against the Shinsengumi, he ruthlessly dispatched him. He has shown emotions around her that he never shows anyone else, as she was the most important person to him, and was shown crying at her deathbed.
   
[[Hijikata Toushirou]]: He commits every act of violence toward Hijikata in a deadpan manner or in a sarcastic smarmy attitude which leaves the audience wondering if he really wants to kill Hijikata or not. For now, he just seems to play dangerous jokes that could, but don't cause Hijikata to lose his life. Besides Okita hating him for the past and for coldly rejecting his sister, Sougo's ambition is to become Vice-commander of the Shinsengumi, the same position Hijikata has currently which is why he's always making him look bad or upstaging him any chance he gets. However, events in Episodes [[Episode 86| 86]] & [[Episode 87| 87]] hint that he may perhaps be jealous that Hijikata always appeared to usurp the attention of those near and dear to him.
+
===Friends & Allies===
  +
* '''[[Kondou Isao]]''': Similar to many others, Sougo constantly teases Kondou and calls him by his nickname, Gorilla. However, Kondou is the only person besides [[Mitsuba]] whom Sougo is openly loyal to, loyal to the point where he sees himself as only one fitting to the position of vice-commander. This admiration stems from when he was a child--Kondou was the first person to make friends with him and became somewhat of a brotherly figure. Sougo went as far as threatening to kill an important foreign official for insulting Kondou and later pretending to betray Hijikata so that he could remain by Kondou's side.
  +
* '''[[Hijikata Toushirou]]''': [[File:Wake Up Sougo.jpg|thumb|[[Episode 85]]]] He often commits acts of violence toward Hijikata in a deadpan manner or with a sarcastic smarmy attitude, leaving the audience constantly wondering whether he is really serious about killing Hijikata or not. For now, he just seems to play dangerous jokes. Sougo's ambition is to become Vice-commander of the Shinsengumi, the same position Hijikata currently holds.[[File:Sougo and Hijikata Episode 10 Woof.jpg|thumb|left|[[Episode 10]]]] Events during the [[Okita Mitsuba Arc]] hint that he is jealous of Hijikata always appearing to usurp the attention of those near and dear to him. It is an undisputed claim that he is the strongest swordsman, but Hijikata can bring out the weaknesses in him, shown in [[Episode 86]] when Sougo loses a match to him. A list of his 'attacks' on [[Hijikata Toushirou]] can be found '''''[[Trivia#.27Attacks.27_on_Hijikata_by_Okita|here]]'''''. Despite the fact that he always tries to kill him, Sougo considers Hijikata as an important figure and a friend, treating him with respect in serious situations as shown in the Prison Island arc.
   
[[Sakata Gintoki]]: Okita seems to get along rather well with Gintoki. After a rough beginning, the two find common grounds in their love of torturing and humiliating Hijikata. After witnessing the fight between Gintoki and Hijikata, Okita said he would love to clash swords with Gintoki one day. Although a hit from Hijikata would often result in a violent retribution from Okita, he doesn't seem to have a problem with taking a lecture or a knock on the head from Gintoki. When his sister came to visit, Okita bribed Gintoki (with a chocolate parfait) to pretend to be his best friend. Later when Okita left, Gintoki acknowledges the friendship to Mitsuba.
+
* '''[[Sakata Gintoki]]''': [[File:Vlcsnap-2014-02-06-07h04m34s10.png|thumb|[[Episode 86]]]] Referring to him "Boss", Okita seems to get along rather well with Gintoki. [[File:Sougo and Gintoki Episode 183.jpg|thumb|left|[[Episode 183]]]] After a rough beginning, the two find common ground in their love of torturing and humiliating Hijikata. After witnessing the fight between Gintoki and Hijikata, Okita said he would love to clash swords with Gintoki one day. Although a hit from Hijikata would often result in a violent retribution from Okita, he doesn't seem to have a problem with taking a lecture or a knock on the head from Gintoki. When his sister came to visit, Okita bribed Gintoki with chocolate parfaits to pretend that he was his best friend. Though this was a charade meant to reassure his sister, Okita does consider Gintoki to be one of his 'three rotten friends.'
  +
* [[Kagura|'''Kagura:''']]''' '''[[File:Kagura, Shinpachi and Sougo Episode 20-0.jpg|thumb|180x180px|Sougo and Kagura fighting in [[Episode 20]]]]Sougo calls her 'China Girl' or 'China'. After the Cherry Blossom party, they would often fight whenever they had a chance. Kagura is one of the only female characters in the [[File:Kagura and Sougo Episode 312-0.jpg|left|thumb|247x247px|Sougo saves Kagura from falling.]]entire series whom he has apologized to, the other being his sister. He's the only one who notices Kagura is faking her illness in Episode 297, but he chooses to sit back and sadistically watch her 'literally' dig her own grave. In the Yagyu Arc, when Kagura was in danger, Sougo saves her and states that only he was allowed to beat her; later, however, when Sougo bends her wrist the wrong way in his 'attempt' to mend it, Kagura retaliates by breaking his leg. When the two realise they will be unable to fight by themselves, they reluctantly team up, showing that despite their ongoing rivalry towards each other, they can work together when needed. This can further be seen in the Rokkaku Arc--when Kagura was shot in the leg and being chased by a group of terrorists, Sougo helped her escape at great risk to his own life. In chapter 534/Episode 312, he manages to save Kagura at the last minute when she falls from a cliff, holding on even though she shouts to let go before the incoming arrows come their way. He also tries to protect her from Nobume, whom he believed intended to kill her. In the aftermath of the Farewell Shinsengumi arc, it is not clear whether Sougo actively seeks Kagura out to say goodbye, but they have one last, bittersweet fight before he departs, during which they both tell each other to not lose to anybody else, echoing Sougo's earlier words in the Yagyu arc.
  +
* '''[[Saitou Shimaru]]''': He respects him more than other Shinsengumi members. He has only heard him speak once at a convenience store where he had in actuality fallen asleep.
   
[[Kagura]]: He also regards [[Kagura]] as a rival after an unfinished rock-paper-scissors duel during a sakura-blossom party. He usually calls her "China". They always tend to fight and argue whenever they have the chance.
+
* '''[[Shimura Shinpachi]]''': [[File:Shinpachi and Sougo Episode 184.jpg|thumb|Sougo sneaks to Shinpachi in [[Episode 184]]]] Sougo treats Shinpachi quite well in comparison to other people since Shinpachi does not offend people as much as the other two Yorozuya members. Kondo additionally issued a new law in Shinsengumi that stated all members had to treat Shinpachi well. 
  +
  +
* '''[[Shimura Tae]]''': [[File:Otae and Female Sougo Episode 275.png|thumb|[[Episode 275]]|177x177px]] He's one of the two Shinsengumi members (the other being Hijikata) who has personally witnessed how dangerous Shinpachi's sister can be when [[Kondo Isao]] becomes particularly insistent in his stalking. As fellow sadists, Sougo respects her. During the Gender Bender Arc, Otae tried to rip off female Okita's breasts as she was infuriated by how big they were.
  +
  +
* '''[[Sarutobi Ayame]]''':[[File:Sarutobi and Sougo Episode 83.jpg|thumb|Sarutobi and Sougo are talking in [[Episode 83]]]] He and Sarutobi first met in [[Episode 83]] at the cabaret club when Sougo took note of her masochism tendencies and quickly formed a bond as S&M enthusiasts. In the [[Host Club Arc]], Sarutobi compliments him when he suggests that he pin her nose back with hooks and posts pictures of it around town for the G-course he was offering. In [[Episode 277]] during the [[Dekoboko Arc]], Sarutobi becomes Lady Souko's advisor at Club Sadist as she becomes the top courtesan in the [[Kabuki District]].
  +
  +
* '''[[Tokugawa Soyo]]''': [[File:Soyo and Sougo Episode 297.jpeg|thumb|Soyo and Sougo in [[Episode 297]]]] In [[Shogun Assassination Arc]] after receiving orders from Hijikata, Sougo went on the ship to defend it from insurgents. He protected Soyo when Kamui attacked and lead Jii-ya and Soyo to safety after the ship went down, earning her utmost gratitude, despite him feeling inadequate about his failed mission.
  +
  +
* '''[[Katsura Kotarou]]''': Formerly a wanted man due to his involvement in terrorist activities against the Bakufu, Katsura was constantly attacked by the Shinsengumi, especially Sougo. They become allies later during the Farewell Shinsengumi Arc.
  +
  +
* '''[[Urara]]''': During the [[Correspondence Arc]], he pretends to be Shinpachi on a date with her, and she quickly becomes completely obedient to him.
  +
  +
* '''[[Imai Nobume 今井信女|Imai Nobume:]] '''They fought against each other in the Mimawarigumi arc. They could be considered rivals because of both of them being sadists. Nobume commented that Okita shares the same eyes as hers: the eyes of a killer.
  +
  +
===Enemies===
  +
*'''[[Kuraba Touma]]''': Though he was thought to be friendly at first, in reality, he was very manipulative, wanting to marry Sougo's sister for the sole purpose of becoming acquainted with the Shinsengumi. Upon Hijikata's discovery of this, both become enraged for using his sister as a tool, and with the help of Gintoki, he finishes Kuroba for good by slicing his car in half.
  +
  +
*'''[[Tendou Soutatsu]]''': He manipulated [[Rokkaku Kirie|Kirie]] into helping him kill Okita, telling her it was supposed to avenge the death of her father during the [[Rokkaku Arc]].
  +
  +
* '''[[Kamui]]''': Kamui has shown interest in Sougo ever since he saw him murdering Takasugi's men. A rivalry formed during Kamui’s fight with Sougo, revealing their sadist levels are near equal. Both constantly look for a rematch.
  +
* '''[[Utsuro]]:''' In [[Episode 314]] during the [[Farewell, Shinsengumi Arc]], Sougo first met Utsuro and faced him together with Kagura and Nobume, but all three were unable to defeat him. Utsuro was the first enemy that had made Sougo shake with caution and admit he was an enemy he could not defeat. As such he refers to him as a "monster".

Overall, he still retains his sadistic nature, as well as his loyalty towards the apparently deceased Gintoki.
  +
  +
==Trivia==
  +
*Based on '''[[Wikipedia:Okita Sōji|Okita Soji]]''' (沖田総司), the captain of the first unit of the Shinsengumi. Soji was a prodigy and was seen as one of best swordsmen of the Shinsengumi. Though just a rumor (but at least true in Ryotaro Shiba's novels), he may have owned a katana called Kiku-ichimonji. In Gintama, he bought the Kiku-ichimonji RX-78.
  +
* In the Japanese version he likes to end his sentences in '~desaa' and "~desuzee'.
  +
* Sorachi originally designed Okita as a female wielding an umbrella; however, he had to be changed to a male since only men are allowed in the Shinsengumi. The umbrella ended up being given to Kagura and the appearance to [[Otsu]]; the female samurai idea went to [[Imai Nobume]] of Mimawarigumi.
  +
*Fans had created female version of him which was named 'Okita Sorachi' along with [[Sakata Gintoki#trivia|Hijikata Toushirou]], [[Hasegawa Taizou#trivia|Kondou Isao]], and [[Shimura Shinpachi#trivia|Shimura Shinpachi]].
  +
* Acknowledged as the ''bishounen'' (美少年, aka 'beautiful youth') of the series, [[Sakata Gintoki|Gintoki]] took a mug-shot of him attempting to slice up [[Shimura Shinpachi|Shinpachi]] and sent it off as Shinpachi's photo in the Pen-pal arc, explaining that he 'looked better' than Shinpachi. Belying the innocent-looking good looks however is an insanely sadistic person who delights in chaos and is always trying to 'kill' his Vice-Commander [[Hijikata Toushirou]].
  +
* In [[Episode 159]], it is revealed in "Teach us Ginpachi-sensei!" that Okita probably listens to Rakugo (a Japanese comic storytelling)
  +
* In Gintama the Movie: Be Forever Yorozuya, Sougo is similar to Himura Kenshin from Rurouni Kenshin. He even has the same speech patterns and is even referred to as "manslayer" just like Kenshin.
  +
* His voice and live-action actors, Kenichi Suzumura and Ryo Yoshizawa are a veteran actors for Kamen Rider series, portraying respective characters:
  +
** Kenichi Suzumura: Voices one of Kamen Rider Den-O's protagonists Ryutaros/Kamen Rider Den-O Gun Form, and made a brief live-action appearance with as a goal keeper in Kamen Rider Kiva Movie: King of the Castle in the Demon World as part of the trivia of his role as Ryutaros.
  +
** Ryo Yoshizawa: Portrays Kamen Rider Fourze's secondary Rider, Kamen Rider Meteor/Ryusei Sakuta.
  +
* In a character poll by Charapedia, Sougo placed 1st in a poll among women for character names they would base their children's names on.[http://www.charapedia.jp/research/0076/3/ [1]]
  +
  +
*Sougo is often paired with Kagura by fans due their rivalry yet somehow protective relationship and which is now known as Okikagu ship. It is said that Okikagu is the most popular ship among other Gintama pairings.

During his childhood, Sougo's parents passed away, leaving his older sister, Okita Mitsuba, to raise him by herself in their home village. She herself admits later that she spoiled him because of their parents' death, which caused him to be aloof and distant. Because of this, he never had many friends, until he caught the eye of Kondou Isao who took him in as a trainee into his dojo. He grew fond of Kondou and still highly respects him.

However, after a new student, Hijikata Toushirou joined the dojo, Sougo became more distant, feeling that Hijikata was taking over Kondo's attention and favouring Hijikata over him. Sougo noticed that Hijikata had grown a close friendship with Kondou and Mitsuba, and this (accompanied by his arrogant attitude at the dojo) caused Sougo to hate Hijikata with a great passion.

A few years later, Sougo, along with the other Dojo students, set off for Edo and subsequently set up the Shinsengumi. Okita Mitsuba wanted to go with Sougo to watch over him and to be with Hijikata. However, after Hijikata rejected Mitsuba's request to follow him (out of knowledge that the path he chose could cause him to lose his life at any time), Sougo has held a grudge against him. This grudge is additionally fueled by his goal to take over as vice-commander of the Shinsengumi.

AppearanceEdit

Okita Sougo appears to be a mild-featured young man with short, light brown hair and red-brown eyes. He has an almost-childlike innocent face as well as full lips and is often described as handsome. During the Correspondance arc, his picture is used to create the impression that 'Shinpachi' is attractive, and at one point, it is said that his good looks are all he has.

He wears the standard Shinsengumi uniform. Like all Shinsengumi captains, he wears a white cravat around his neck, tucked into a black vest with a yellow lock. His dark, unbuttoned jacket (reaching to the thigh with a collar) is decorated with gold buckles, buttons, and triangular-shaped cuffs. His black trousers are supported by a brown belt with a silver buckle. At the left hip is tied his sheath, holding his katana. He also wears black, heavy boots with a small heel.

When resting, or skipping work, he wears a distinct red sleep mask with eye markings. He carries it around with him and is rarely seen without it. It has a black border and red painted interior, decorated with wide-open eyes with straight lashes.

During the events of the Dekoboko Arc, he switched genders due to a curse and was seen in his female form. Shinpachi describes the gender-swapped Sougo as a "Grade A beauty, as expected." Later during the arc, he wears a yellow short kimono and thigh high tabi black socks.

Okita Sougo's GalleryEdit

PersonalityEdit

Sougo's most prominent trait is his sadistic nature, an example of this being his collaring and chaining up Urara with a metal leash for an "S&M" (sadistic & masochistic) play. Hijikata even goes as far as calling him the King of the Planet of Sadists in episode 20. Although he is known as a sadist, he is extremely submissive to his sister, Okita Mitsuba, shown in his respectful way of speaking to her and the way he kneels before his sister to apologize. In episode 35, however, Sougo fell of a roller-coaster and admitted in his panic that his sadism stems from his insecurity.  

He is shown to have evil intentions behind any good thing he does, and is very blunt about his dislike towards other people, especially to Hijikata. Despite this, Sougo is usually protective of the ones he cares for, such as his sister, Okita Mitsuba, and his commander, Kondou Isao (although Sougo repeatedly calls him Gorilla); when an official insults Kondou, Sougo draws his sword to kill him before being stopped by Hijikata. Additionally, he is unexpectedly sensitive to others' feelings when it truly counts, often saving his comrades' lives in battles and even taking on burdens for other people.

Sougo's ambition is to become the vice-commander of the Shinsengumi, and as such, he regularly attempts to usurp Hijikata of the position through various methods, ranging from framing him for murder (when he shoots Matsudaira and places the gun in Hijikata's hand with the intention of making it look like the vice-commander had been the one to shoot), to harming or even "killing" Hijikata. His attempts appear real enough that Hijikata was afraid he would get killed during the Shinsengumi Death Game arc. In spite of this, Sougo has respect for Hijikata and even considers him to be one of his 'three rotten friends' (the other two being Kondo and Sakata Gintoki). He also has a similar rivalry with Kagura of the Yorozuya, and the two often get in meaningless competitions over the smallest of situations.

In general, Sougo acts aloof and disinterested most of the time and is most often seen with a blank, deadpan expression on his face. Though he often acts lazy and slacks off on his jobs, he is very attentive when needed and does not hesitate to kill or cut down his enemies. He is also very observant and aware of political movements, as he is often the one explaining situations to the Yorozuya. Both Nobume and Kamui have stated that Sougo has the eyes of a killer, yet he doesn't wish for innocent people to walk the path he has taken and be stained by blood. This is particularly evident in the Rokkaku arc, where he would rather take the blame and hatred of the daughter of the Rokkaku owner than let her know the cruel truth of her father's death. Additionally, in Episode 27, he shows distaste towards the Rengokukan fighting ring and enlists the Yorozuya to help him shut it down.

Strength & AbilitiesEdit

Skills

  • Increased Strength: Kondo Isao once stated that Sougo was one of the best fighters in his dojo. His combat skills are at a lower level than Hijikata, but he rarely loses to him. He was able to cut a car in half with a single strike, and destroy concrete pillars supporting a building during his fight with Imai Nobume.
  • Master Swordsmanship Specialist: Shinpachi mentioned that Sougo is a genius swordsman and the strongest in Shinsengumi. He has shown incredible strength with his sword during the Rokkaku Arc, eradicating many Jouishishi members while deflecting sniper bullets with only two swords. He destroys an entire concrete building in the Baragaki Arc and was also able to fight squarely with Kamui during the Shogun Assassination Arc, managing to inflict many grave injuries.

Items

  • Katana model Kiku-Ichimonji RX-78 : Sougo carries a katana, a traditional Japanese sword. The handle is decorated with typical braid tsukaito. His katana has a built-in MP3 player, and the blade can cut through even rock.
  • The scabbard with his Kikumonji katana :

  • Shinsengumi Bazooka : Sougo can often be seen with a bazooka, which he uses to shoot not only opponents but also Hijikata.

RelationshipsEdit

MentorEdit

  • Kanchou: In childhood, Sougo often came to his dojo to practice. During a sword exercise (where students would swing a heavy piece of wood), he praised Sougo as a genius, before discovering a few seconds later that he was being tricked, after which he proceeded to scold Sougo.

FamilyEdit

  • Okita Mitsuba:
    Okita group

    Sougo his sister Mitsuba in Episode 86

    Sougo is very attached to his older sister Okita Mitsuba, who brought him up from a young age when both were orphaned. He always speaks to her with great respect in contrast to his typical attitude towards everybody else. He has made wrong decisions for what he believed was for her sake; despite knowing that Mitsuba's fiance, Toma Kuraba, was a Joui rebel, he at first pleaded that Hijikata spare Toma, as Mitsuba was dying from a lung disease, and he wanted to her to experience happiness before she passed. But after learning that Toma was only using her as a bargaining chip to his advantage against the Shinsengumi, he ruthlessly dispatched him. He has shown emotions around her that he never shows anyone else, as she was the most important person to him, and was shown crying at her deathbed.

Friends & AlliesEdit

  • Kondou Isao: Similar to many others, Sougo constantly teases Kondou and calls him by his nickname, Gorilla. However, Kondou is the only person besides Mitsuba whom Sougo is openly loyal to, loyal to the point where he sees himself as only one fitting to the position of vice-commander. This admiration stems from when he was a child--Kondou was the first person to make friends with him and became somewhat of a brotherly figure. Sougo went as far as threatening to kill an important foreign official for insulting Kondou and later pretending to betray Hijikata so that he could remain by Kondou's side.
  • Hijikata Toushirou:
    Wake Up Sougo

    Episode 85

    He often commits acts of violence toward Hijikata in a deadpan manner or with a sarcastic smarmy attitude, leaving the audience constantly wondering whether he is really serious about killing Hijikata or not.

    Sougo and Hijikata Episode 10 Woof

    Episode 10

    Events during the Okita Mitsuba Arc hint that he is jealous of Hijikata always appearing to usurp the attention of those near and dear to him. It is an undisputed claim that he is the strongest swordsman, but Hijikata can bring out the weaknesses in him, shown in Episode 86 when Sougo loses a match to him. A list of his 'attacks' on Hijikata Toushirou can be found here. Despite the fact that he always tries to kill him, Sougo considers Hijikata as an important figure and a friend, treating him with respect in serious situations as shown in the Prison Island arc.

After witnessing the fight between Gintoki and Hijikata, Okita said he would love to clash swords with Gintoki one day. Although a hit from Hijikata would often result in a violent retribution from Okita, he doesn't seem to have a problem with taking a lecture or a knock on the head from Gintoki. When his sister came to visit, Okita bribed Gintoki with chocolate parfaits to pretend that he was his best friend. Though this was a charade meant to reassure his sister, Okita does consider Gintoki to be one of his 'three rotten friends.'

    entire series whom he has apologized to, the other being his sister. He's the only one who notices Kagura is faking her illness in Episode 297, but he chooses to sit back and sadistically watch her 'literally' dig her own grave. In the Yagyu Arc, when Kagura was in danger, Sougo saves her and states that only he was allowed to beat her; later, however, when Sougo bends her wrist the wrong way in his 'attempt' to mend it, Kagura retaliates by breaking his leg. When the two realise they will be unable to fight by themselves, they reluctantly team up, showing that despite their ongoing rivalry towards each other, they can work together when needed. This can further be seen in the Rokkaku Arc--when Kagura was shot in the leg and being chased by a group of terrorists, Sougo helped her escape at great risk to his own life. In chapter 534/Episode 312, he manages to save Kagura at the last minute when she falls from a cliff, holding on even though she shouts to let go before the incoming arrows come their way. He also tries to protect her from Nobume, whom he believed intended to kill her. In the aftermath of the Farewell Shinsengumi arc, it is not clear whether Sougo actively seeks Kagura out to say goodbye, but they have one last, bittersweet fight before he departs, during which they both tell each other to not lose to anybody else, echoing Sougo's earlier words in the Yagyu arc.

Upon Hijikata's discovery of this, both become enraged for using his sister as a tool, and with the help of Gintoki, he finishes Kuroba for good by slicing his car in half.

TriviaEdit

  • Based on Okita Soji (沖田総司), the captain of the first unit of the Shinsengumi. Soji was a prodigy and was seen as one of best swordsmen of the Shinsengumi. Though just a rumor (but at least true in Ryotaro Shiba's novels), he may have owned a katana called Kiku-ichimonji. In Gintama, he bought the Kiku-ichimonji RX-78.
  • In the Japanese version he likes to end his sentences in '~desaa' and "~desuzee'.
  • Sorachi originally designed Okita as a female wielding an umbrella; however, he had to be changed to a male since only men are allowed in the Shinsengumi. The umbrella ended up being given to Kagura and the appearance to Otsu; the female samurai idea went to Imai Nobume of Mimawarigumi.
  • Fans had created female version of him which was named 'Okita Sorachi' along with Hijikata Toushirou, Kondou Isao, and Shimura Shinpachi.
  • Acknowledged as the bishounen (美少年, aka 'beautiful youth') of the series, Gintoki took a mug-shot of him attempting to slice up Shinpachi and sent it off as Shinpachi's photo in the Pen-pal arc, explaining that he 'looked better' than Shinpachi. Belying the innocent-looking good looks however is an insanely sadistic person who delights in chaos and is always trying to 'kill' his Vice-Commander Hijikata Toushirou.
  • In Episode 159, it is revealed in "Teach us Ginpachi-sensei!" that Okita probably listens to Rakugo (a Japanese comic storytelling)
  • In Gintama the Movie: Be Forever Yorozuya, Sougo is similar to Himura Kenshin from Rurouni Kenshin. He even has the same speech patterns and is even referred to as "manslayer" just like Kenshin.
  • His voice and live-action actors, Kenichi Suzumura and Ryo Yoshizawa are a veteran actors for Kamen Rider series, portraying respective characters:
    • Kenichi Suzumura: Voices one of Kamen Rider Den-O's protagonists Ryutaros/Kamen Rider Den-O Gun Form, and made a brief live-action appearance with as a goal keeper in Kamen Rider Kiva Movie: King of the Castle in the Demon World as part of the trivia of his role as Ryutaros.
    • Ryo Yoshizawa: Portrays Kamen Rider Fourze's secondary Rider, Kamen Rider Meteor/Ryusei Sakuta.
  • In a character poll by Charapedia, Sougo placed 1st in a poll among women for character names they would base their children's names on.[1]
  • Sougo is often paired with Kagura by fans due their rivalry yet somehow protective relationship and which is now known as Okikagu ship. It is said that Okikagu is the most popular ship among other Gintama pairings.
