Kami-sama appears from his mirror, asking Kemedama how are the offers from Kaminoke Village are and upon hearing that there are none, he recalls how abundant their offerings used to be during that time of the year. He wishes to take their hair as a warning, however he can not as he is getting weaker due to the lack of offerings, where then Kemedama forms a plan to help him regain his strength.

Later Kami-sama is told of Kemedama's plan when he returns holding Medama-Oyaji hostage, where in exchange for his father's safety Kitarō would have to give his powers to him. He praises Kemedama for this and proceeds to trap Medama-Oyaji in his mirror as they wait for Kitarō. Almost immediately he arrives, where then Kami-sama orders that he gives his powers to him for his father's freedom. Kitarō agrees and Kami-sama pulls him into his mirror, but Kemedama smashes it releasing all of them.

Angered at his betrayal Kami-sama punishes his servant, when Kitarō intervenes and battles him to protect Kemedama. He binds the boy with his hair and proceeds to continuously slam him against the ground, but is hit in the eye with the Yōkai boy's getas and is electrically shocked, making his hair frizzy. As he worries over this, Kemedama begs that he returns to his mirror, while adamant at first, his servant volunteers to find offerings for him and additionally having Medama-Oyaji asking the Yōkai Yokochō residents to send some as well. He asks if this is true which Kemedama confirms, with this he requests that they send a hair straightener as he returns to his mirror.[3]
