Within the fifth anime, Kasha is a large anthropomorphic cat-like yōkai, with a lean build, light red fur and a yellow underside. His lilac hair covers around his head, forming sideburns and a beard. He has bushy lilac eyebrows over his eyes with yellow sclerae and thin red pupils. He also has feathery ears, a small pointy nose, a mouth with sharp white teeth, light red claws and a long lilac, hair-like tail that ends in a constantly burning fire.[1]

In the sixth anime, Kasha resembles a bipedal cat with green fur covering his body with a light-yellow underside. His hair around his head is red, with matching sideburns and beard, his maroon bushy eyebrows sit above his eyes that have yellow sclerae and thin red pupils. He has feathery ears, a big round nose, green claws and a long tail that ends in a constant fire. In his youth, he had a more lean build and a mouth filled sharp white teeth. However in the modern days, he has become frail, his face gaining more wrinkles, a few strands of hair stand out and his mouth has less teeth.[2]

The Kasha of legend is a cannibalistic, cat-like spirit entity which is found near crematoriums and tries to feed off human corpses. In order to ward off the kasha, Japanese families make loud noises on bells, gongs and drums to maintain a vigil over the bodies of the departed ones. In many cases their true identity of the kasha is actually a Neko-Mata, and it is also said that cats that grow old would turn into that yōkai.
