Zenzo Hattori (服部全蔵 Hattori Zenzō?) is a highly skilled ninja who sports a light-brown/dark-blonde mop top and a goatee. Initially introduced as a cloaked ninja assisting in the fraudulent "Dreamcatcher" scheme, his first notable appearance was when he and Gintoki attempt to fight to the death over the last remaining issue of a Christmas Double Issue Akamaru Jump. Like Sa-chan, he too was originally a member of the Oniwabanshū. He is the first ninja in the series to apparently equal obsessive devotion to Jump. He apparently suffers from piles. He commands a freelance ninja team known as the "Shinobi 5." His father is said to be the strongest man in the Oniwabanshū, and an instructor to many of his peers, including Ayame Sarutobi.He is a parody of Hattori Hanzou, a real life ninja who served under Tokugawa Ieyasu.
has moniker of 摩利支天 Morishiten
- problem with hemorrhoids, prefers applied on medication than injection type 
- part-time job as pizza delivery boy
- leader of the シノビ5, Shinobi 5, a mercenary ninja group for hire
Yet another character whose eyes are perpetually covered by a mob of hair, Zenzou has a small goatee the same colour as his straw-coloured hair. Typically dressed in ninja attire and a scarf.
Zenzou describes Samurai as dogs, loyal to a point and incapable of change while describing ninja as being similar to cats, loyal only so long as they are fed and willing to move on when their master is gone. This would seemingly reflect his work ethic as he has passed through several people's employment during the series. He did not get along with his father, whose obsession with the game "kick the can" seemed to anger Zenzou to no end and the fact that his father sold his JUMP collection to buy porn DVD. He, like Gintoki is an avid reader of Jump magazine.
In Episode ? it is revealed that he likes ugly women.
Has haemorrhoids problem, and yet he is often injured at that very particular spot, especially by Gintoki's scooter.
