2018 Anime

Western Yōkai Arc

Dokkyakuki appears as a chef in his own shop, who serves food to Nezumi-Otoko, while discussing with him about his shop's business going down. He informs him that it is not due to recession while also telling him to run, as talk from other visiting foreign yōkai that an army is coming to Japan and that the country may fall from this upcoming war. Nezumi-Otoko asks who the leader is, so Dokkyakuki whispers his name to him. Nezumi-Otoko utters "Backbeard" out loud, as they both felt a glare from somewhere, Dokkyakuki warns him not to say it so loud.[1]

Final Chapter: Nurarihyon Arc

One night he serves food to Nezumi-Otoko and Hiderigami, where the rat yōkai offers the latter to publish his manga on his website.
