After being revived as an oni in modern times, Gengetsu Kibaoni and forces were sealed away within forty-eight Sealing Shuriken (封印の手裏剣 Fūin no Shuriken) by the Ninningers' grandfather Yoshitaka Igasaki. However, after decades of waiting, Kyuemon Izayoi manages to break the seal and release the Kibaoni Army Corps and use the three spearheads to gather the "Power of Fear" (恐れの力 Osore no Chikara) from terrorizing humans to restore their leader and resume their campaign with the power of the End Shuriken (終わりの手裏剣 Owari no Shuriken).

Gengetsu Kibaoni (牙鬼 幻月 Kibaoni Gengetsu)[lower-alpha 1] was formerly an evil feudal warlord during the Sengoku Era who believed that fear was the best method to unite the war-torn Japan.

Though Kibaoni was killed by the ninjas of the Igasaki clan, he vowed to return in 444 years to resume his campaign. As a result, Kibaoni sacrificed his humanity to be revived as an oni centuries later before he was sealed away by Yoshitaka Igasaki. But Kibaoni's prophecy, due to a miscalculation of dating, is revealed to begin in 2015 as Kyuemon manages to release his master and their forces. Lacking physical form upon his release, Kibaoni tasks his retainers to gather fear so he can reconstitute himself, and eventually achieves his goal using the grief and anger of his wife over their son Mangetsu's death. After Ariake and Kyuemon are defeated by the Niningers, Gengetsu absorbs them into his body and enlarges himself for the final battle against the heroes, just to be ultimately destroyed by Haoh Gekiatsu Daioh after Kyuemon breaks free of his body.[38][39]

Kyuemon Izayoi

Kyuemon Izayoi (十六夜 九衛門 Izayoi Kyūemon)[lower-alpha 2] was originally the first and only apprentice of Yoshitaka. But after becoming fearful of his power after Yoshitaka refused to hand over the End Shuriken, Kyuemon ended up in his current kitsune-masked form with mastery of Yojutsu (妖術 Yōjutsu) spells and a hatred towards his former mentor. As a self-styled page of Kibaoni, Kyuemon ordered the destruction of the Igasaki Ninjutsu Dojo to obtain a special mallet that he uses to end the confinement of Kibaoni's spirit. Kyuemon also searches for the End Shuriken for its power, justifying he has the right as Yoshitaka's first apprentice. But while Raizo was easy for him to manipulate, Kyuemon had difficult luck doing the same with Masakage and attempts an alliance with Kinji for his goals. When that failed, Kyuemon acts against Masakage and Ariake by reviving four of the Oniwaban Five into his service. Later, after finding Mangetsu dying after a fight Ninningers, Kyuemon reveals that he is Kibaoni's firstborn son. Kibaoni further explains that Kyuemon is his son Shingetsu Kyuemon Kibaoni (牙鬼 久右衛門 新月 Kibaoni Kyūemon Shingetsu) by a concubine 444 years prior to the start of the series; he then went on to protect Kyuemon, and set the plans of his second revival into motion by using his then-nascent Yokai powers to send the infant into the future. When the Ninningers fought his father, he stabbed Yoshitaka in the back killing him, stealing his Nintality and the End Shuriken. He uses the stolen Last Ninja powers and several corrupted Sealing Shuriken to assumes a much more powerful form. In his final stand against the Ninningers, Takaharu and Kinji manage to figure out that Kyuemon has actually been following in Yoshitaka's footsteps all along, in a similar way to Kinji, as both want the End Shuriken in order to bring their families back. After admitting this is the truth, Kyuemon receives his own Nin Shuriken from Yoshikata but is interrupted by Gengetsu, who absorbs Kyuemon into his body to boost his power. In a last ditch effort, Kyuemon escapes from his father, allowing the Ninningers to finish him. After making peace with Yoshitaka, Kyuemon finally passes on and returns the End Shuriken to the Ninningers. His personal Nin Shuriken is enshrined in his memory, until it is given by Sakurako to Luna to become Mido Ninger. During the battle against the revived Ariake and Mangetsu, Kyuemon's sprit contained inside the Nin Shuriken possesses Luna's body and he fights alongside the Ninningers to repay his debt to them, finally being allowed to reincarnate after returning to the Igasaki Clan the mallet he stole from them.

While using his bottle gourd to gather the Power of Fear emitted from the terrorized humans needed to fully revive Kibaoni and his retainers, Kyuemon can also use his mallet in conjunction with Sealing Shurikens that he corrupted with his power into Yo Shuriken (妖シュリケン Yō Shuriken, "Bewitching Shuriken").

While he passionately hates the Igasaki clan, Raizo has his own ambition and craves battling powerful enemies to the point that he will kill off his allies if he considers them to be interfering. Raizo was revived after Kyuemon gives his remains the Power of Fear that he collected from the actions of Kamaitachi and Kappa so that he can help him gather more fear. But revealed to be not fully awakened, Raizo refuses to aid Kyuemon as he personally fights the Ninningers to awake himself up by facing a worthy opponent. This results in Raizo finding an ideal opponent in Takaharu, reluctantly agreeing to assist Kyuemon as it would allow him to be able to fight the human for real in a battle to the death. Once eventually achieving his goal, managing to render Takaharu unconscious after defeating him, Raizo honors his promise to Kyuemon by terrorizing the city with his Jukkarage forces before being defeated by Aka Ninger in a rematch. Though he accepted his defeat, Raizo is forcefully enlarged into a mindless berserker by Kyuemon, wielding a Gashadokuro zanbatō. In the end, Raizo is defeated by King Shurikenzin and enabled to return to the afterlife, thanking Takaharu and apologizing to his master. When Gengetsu Kibaoni is finally fully revived, he revives Raizo a second time with a corrupted Sealing Shuriken, giving him a more powerful form.

Masakage is revived by Kyuemon after Raizo's defeat to help him gather the amount of fear needed for Kibaoni's resurrection. However, Masakage regards the destruction of the Igasaki Clan as his top priority, and is perceptive enough to know Kyuemon is not an true member of the Kibaoni Army Corps. Masakage permits Kyuemon's continued presence so long as he does not act against Kibaoni's will.

He eventually took the fight to the Ninningers personally after his master fully revived, when Kyuemon, now speaking as Kibaoni's second-in-command, tasks him with gathering more fear. During the fight, it is revealed Masakage is actually very tiny and the human sized body the Ninningers fought is a mechanical replica piloted by the tiny original.

She is impatient and vain, yelling at Masakage or Kyuemon (whom she always refers to as "kitsune") to fix things when things don't go right and using the "fear" gathered by Kyuemon as a beauty treatment or to flavor shaved ice. She believes she needs to look her best when her husband is finally revived. She is never seen without two Hyakkarage bodyguards who protect and serve her. Ariake eventually reveals the reason why she needed so much fear energy was because she was pregnant with Kibaoni's son, Mangetsu Kibaoni. She loves Mangetsu dearly, doting on him even though he was extremely abusive towards her, and even forgives him for using her as a human shield. When Kyuemon reports Mangetsu's demise to Ariake, her rage and grief, alone, creates an overflow of fear energy great enough to allow Kibaoni to regain his physical form and is heartbroken to learn of Kyuemon's familial ties to her husband. During the final battle, Ariake is mortally wounded by Kinji and Kasumi with her life force then absorbed by Kibaoni.[48][49]

Two years later, Mangetsu is revived by Ariake, but is destroyed again along with her by the seven Ninningers.

Mangetsu Kibaoni is voiced by Ryōtarō Okiayu (置鮎 龍太郎 Okiayu Ryōtarō).


The Hitokarage (ヒトカラゲ)[lower-alpha 6] are ashigaru footsoldiers who are armed with spears and arquebuses and support the Yokai. They are created from Gengetsu's evil energy leaking from the tainted Sealing Shuriken. Through the power of one of Kibaoni's generals, the Hitokarage can transform into the stronger Jukkarage (ジュッカラゲ)[lower-alpha 7] who are armed with sasumata-styled swords and arquebuses. The Hyakkarage (ヒャッカラゲ)[lower-alpha 8] are elite Jukkarage who are ten times as strong as the Jukkarage.[52] The Senkarage (センカラゲ)[lower-alpha 9] are giant Hyakkarage with the kanji for thousand on their jackets.


The Gashadokuro (ガシャドクロ) are giant, skeletal Yokai armed with twin-bladed billhook-styled swords that are summoned by Kyuemon. A number of the Gashadokuro can also combine to form a zanbatō for other enlarged Yokai to use.[54]


The Yokai (妖怪 Yōkai) are monsters that are created from one of the tainted Sealing Shuriken coming into contact with an item. Acting on Kibaoni's will, Yokai function in gathering the “Power of Fear” by attacking people. Once a Yokai is destroyed, the Sealing Shuriken that forms its core is purified and the Ninningers must gather all of them in order to seal Kibaoni once more while using some as additional arsenal.

Western Yokai

The Three Western Yokai (西洋三大妖怪 Seiyō San-dai Yōkai) are a trio of Yokai who have flourished in western civilization, having appeared in Europe and America before they are summoned to Japan by Ariake.

Advanced Yokai

The Advanced Yokai (上級妖怪 Jōkyū Yōkai) are created from two of the tainted Sealing Shuriken coming into contact with an item, instead of one. Stronger than the ordinary Yokai, they also have the ability to make themselves grow into giants through their own power, without the help of Kyuemon's mallet.

Super Advanced Yokai

The Super Advanced Yokai (超上級妖怪 Chō Jōkyū Yōkai) are created from four of the tainted Sealing Shuriken coming into contact with an object, rather than one or two shurikens, and are stronger than the Advanced Yokai. Like the Advanced Yokai, the Super Advanced Yokai also have the ability to make themselves grow into giants through their own power, without the help of Kyuemon's mallet.

Other Yokai

Oniwaban Five

The Oniwaban Five (御庭番五人衆 Oniwaban Gonin Shū, lit. "Oniwaban Five People") is a group of Kibaoni-Style Ninja (牙鬼流忍者 Kibaoni-ryū Ninja) who are sealed within the Kibaoni family scrolls before four of them are revived by Kyuemon to serve under him. Like the Ninningers, they can perform special attacks by inserting a shuriken into their Ninja Hyakuyotou (忍邪百妖刀 Ninja Hyakuyōtō, "Evil Ninja Hundred Bewitching Sword") ninjatō. Each ninja possesses a Core Gear (コア歯車 Koa Haguruma), Kyuemon taking possession of the Core Gears of his the Oniwaban he revived to create his Karakuri Kyubi.


The Supparage (スッパラゲ)[lower-alpha 10] are kitsune-masked ninja footsoldiers of the Izayoi-Style Ninja who are armed with ninjatō.[92]
