Dr. I. Genus (ジーナス博士, Jīnasu Hakase) is a world renowned scientist and the founder and former head of the now defunct organization, the House of Evolution.


From an early age Dr. Genus doubted the claim that humans have unlimited potential, he considered the people around him to be primitive and found it painful to live among them.[2] At age fifteen, he decided that he would make humanity evolve further and create a world in which he would be able to live.[2] Over the next few years he used his immense intelligence and made various contributions to the world.[3] However, despite all the praise he received for his intellect, no one would approve of his ideas to artificially evolve human beings through man-made mutations.[4]

He thus decided to carry out his plans by himself.[5] His plans finally started bearing fruit after he turned seventy, when he managed to return his body to its previous youthful state.[6] After that he started creating clones of himself in large numbers and together with the clones conducted countless experiments on animals and then switched his attention to humans. He named their laboratory "House of Evolution" and through experimentation created a large number of new species there.[6]

House of Evolution Arc

Dr. Genus first appeared, when his monster Mosquito Girl was killed by Saitama, casually noting that Mosquito Girl without blood was just an insect with wings. However the clone corrects him, stating that Mosquito Girl was killed after consuming a large amount of blood, moreover in a single hit. Genus momentarily wonders why Saitama is naked before declaring his intention to examine Saitama's body for experimentation, sending Kamakyuri, Frog Man, Slugerous, Ground Dragon, Armored Gorilla, and Beast King to "invite" Saitama to the House of Evolution. Much to his frustration, the mysterious beings he had sent were wiped out, forcing him to make plans to release Carnage Kabuto as a last resort.

The original Genus appears in front of Carnage Kabuto after the test subject had killed a number of his clones, proposing he bring in Saitama for his experiments. Carnage Kabuto takes Genus along roughly, and after Genus identifies Saitama and Carnage Kabuto challenges him, Genus is seen nursing his injuries while witnessing the battle between Carnage Kabuto and Saitama from afar. Like Carnage Kabuto, Genus is taken by surprise at Saitama's explanation of his immense strength.

Upon witnessing Carnage Kabuto enter Carnage Mode, Genus loses all hope for a moment and is completely taken aback when Saitama obliterates Carnage Kabuto with a single punch. Genus, apparently finally understanding the meaning of Saitama's words, then abandons his evolutionary endeavors and concludes that he himself is the one who has to change.

  • "To hell with the research and the artificial evolution, looks like I'm the one who has to change." [9]


  • In the anime, his introductory montage in episode three depicts a moment where his eyes momentarily glow green. In a similar anime-only moment in episode one, Saitama's eyes glowed orange after defeating Crabrante. Saitama and Dr. Genus are the only characters shown to exhibit this effect so far, so it's unknown what it represents.
  • Genus can be considered to be one of the best scientist in the series along with Bofoi and Dr. Kuseno.
