Takeshi Jin (武ジン, タケシ・ジンノ) is the main protagonist in IGPX and the forward in Team Satomi. Takeshi is a cocky, somewhat arrogant, yet laid back, determined racer who lets his fame get to his head. His other teammates (especially Liz) normally berate him for such things. However, he is able to keep a clear head by playing video games. As the series progresses he "grows up" and becomes more mature. He has a normal family life and he has a crush on Liz (who feels the same way).
