Bamboo Pipe: Gotoku-Neko owns a large bamboo pipe in the 1996 anime, that is capable of releasing a powerful, but short-ranged, fire blast.
The Gotoku-Neko is a type of Bake-Neko, where it wears an upside down kettle stand, or trivet, on top of its head. It can be found sitting around the irori, an in-floor hearth found in old country houses of Japan, and tending the fire by using a bamboo pipe to blow on it. Its name can also mean five virtues of Confucianism.
