In the anime, Jukai and Kuribayashi mainly work as a comic duo. They try at being serious monks, though only Kuribayashi succeeds in doing so.
Jukai is very creative and attempts a great variety of tricks to make money. One of these includes him and Kuribayashi going on tour alongside Chibi Zenki to show him off like a circus monkey. Whenever Jukai gets creative, Kuribayashi will follow his advice, though sometimes, he will question Jukai's actions.
The abbot Jukai is also a wisecracker and loves to exaggerate women's proportions to show his liking towards them. This often results in Saki hitting him in the head with a fan to punish his rude behaviour.
In the manga, Jukai is way more serious than his anime version. Here, he acts as a mentor to Chiaki, very similar to Saki. He is also rarely seen with Kuribayashi and often hangs out at the Enno Shrine.
When Jukai, Goki, Zenki and Chiaki battle the Inugami's henchmen, Jukai beats them down, using his Exotic Crane Dance. He later passes this skill to Goki, who was so awestruck, he saw his chance to learn about a way that would allow him to defend Chiaki both with the power of Aether (his shields, healing and revival) and by using martial arts (which would allow him to defend Chiaki and the others regardless of his form). Goki later utilizes what he has learnt from Jukai, when he has to face Dokuro Sou, the latter of whom threatens Jukai's and Chiaki's lives.
He only appears in a few cutscenes of the second SNES game Kishin Douji Zenki 2 - Den Ei Rai Bu. He is a minor character and only has a few lines ingame.
