Anguish is one of the many forms of Inner Jack and a minor character in Season 5 of Samurai Jack.


In Episode XCIII, Anguish came to Jack when he was hiding from the Daughters of Aku. Anguish was constantly telling Jack to give up and trying to convince him to commit seppuku, in which the Omen appeared to Jack and Jack told Anguish to be quiet.

In Episode XCVIII, Jack defeated Mad Jack and sealed away all the negative personalities including Anguish.



  • "It's time to end it, don't you think?"
  • "When you had the sword, but now it's gone. There's no hope."
  • "Well listen to you. And what are you going to do when Aku finds you and realizes you have no sword?"
  • "Maybe he's right. You haven't faced anything so powerful. How much longer can you keep this up?"
  • "Who cares anymore? There's no way home, there's nothing to fight for. There's no more honor. Come to think of it, the only honorable thing to do is-"
  • "I want it to end. Aren't you tired? Wouldn't it be great to be free of all of this? Our ancestors are waiting for us, they want you to join them.”
  • "You'll never make it, they'll get you!"


  • Many fans confused Mad Jack and Anguish to be the same person, however this was false as Mad Jack [Jack's] own inner hatred and Anguish represents weariness and loss of hope.
  • Anguish was the first form of Inner Jack to appear in Season 5.
