Presumably two different individuals were present in the third anime adaptation.
One is the ancestor of the octopuses who sealed Tenaga-Ashinaga 300 years ago. His descendants describe that he no longer comes ashore due to his age.
Another attacked Kitarō and others on a clam ship but was soon defeated.
Bake-Dako appears in episode 15 of the fifth anime adaptation. He runs a massage store.
