Yes, it seems that the initial time travel has affected the aging process. It's quite the conundrum.

—Therapist Doppelgänger

Aku's Therapist or The Therapist Doppelgänger was a character in Season 5 of Samurai Jack.


Aku appeared to often go to a Therapist Doppelgänger to tell him about his problems with Samurai Jack. However, it also seemed that the Therapist wanted Jack to die as much as Aku did.

Aku's therapist was erased from existence after Jack managed to destroy Aku in the past.


As his name may have suggested, the Therapist was merely a doppelgänger of Aku. He wore clothes, such as a shirt, a sweater, trousers, socks, and shoes. He wore glasses and had a watch on his right wrist. He also used a pencil and notebook, as therapists usually do.



  • "So, tell me what's been bothering you?"
  • "It's been that long?"
  • "We don't say his name here. This is a safe place."
  • "Yes, It seems that the initial time travel spell has affected the aging process. It's quite a conundrum."
  • "Just what is called a confusing or difficult problem."
  • "Yes, one can hope."


  • It was to be assumed that he was spawned from Aku.
  • It was possible that Aku had often visited the Therapist during the time gap between Season 4 and 5.
  • It can be assume that Aku somehow studied psychology at some point in order for his therapist to be of any help to him during the last 50 years.
