Daijin (大臣) is a member of Lapxus and the Stage 3 Boss of Emergency Everyday. He was also planned to be an unlockable playable character, but never achieved that role in the state the game was left in.
Daijin is from Emergency Everyday, which is a game that predates Evanescent Existence. The character was created by Daijin and not by JynX. Judging from his appearance, he may have been the basis for Tsubakura Enraku.
His full name is Daijin (大臣), which simply means "minister", a term for someone who holds public office on a regional/national scale. Like most of the cast of Emergency Everyday, Daijin has a name similar to that of a real-life person who had a hand in creating the game; in this case, the main developer themself, making Daijin a self-insert character of sorts.
Influences for future Len'en characters
Many of Daijin's designs and concepts would eventually be used for the characters created by JynX for the Len'en Project:
- Tsubakura Enraku: While Tsubakura's design, and apparent mastery of technology, is obviously lifted from Daijin, closer inspection shows that, for Daijin, said technology only pertains to gaming, as opposed to Tsubakura's usage of general machinery. Daijin's minimal understanding of a multitude of random concepts also heavily contrasts with Tsubakura being a legitimate genius when approaching technology.
- Tsurubami Senri: As hinted at in Daijin's profile and Serintsu's Stage 3 dialogue, the person who appears to be Daijin in the main scenario is actually somebody who is impersonating him, much like how Tsurubami disguises themself as Tsubakura in Evanescent Existence. Also like "Tsubakura", "Daijin" wanders around "the 2D world" in order to battle the other spirited-away outsiders, presumably as a means of testing their abilities, as well as break the fourth wall by stating to Serintsu that they will "see them in the Extra Stage", implying that the imposter's true form would've been the Extra Stage's boss in Emergency Everyday's hypothetical full version. "Daijin"'s design is also similar to Tsurubami's Tsubakura disguise due to having similarly-curly hair. Daijin's theme, "SAVE the GAME", was rearranged by JynX to be used as Tsurubami's theme in Evanescent Existence, "Eternal Dance Engine ~ Shall_We_Dance!!"; something that JynX possibly alluded to in the omake.txt file included with EE and EMS, stating that "one of the songs in the first game" was not originally created by him, and that he gained permission from the original composer to use it, on the condition that JynX recreate it.
- Hooaka Shitodo: The real Daijin is implied to be a rather aloof and brutally-honest person, much like Hooaka is when interacting with other people. Unlike Hooaka, however, Daijin has seemingly molded his personality to be that way by himself, unlike how Hooaka's personality is gradually being influenced by Kuroji Shitodo.

- ↑ "MOD" might be a shorthand for "modulation" or a reference to console modding.
- ↑ 2.0 2.1 "FDS" stands for "Flying Disk System". It's also a reference to the Famicom Disk System.
- ↑ This may be a reference to PSP bricking, which renders the machine useless "like a brick". This may happen if one turns off the device during a firmware update, or tries to hack a PSP.
- ↑ Likely a corruption of "Sony timer".
