Kurage-no-Hinotama (海月の火の玉 Kurage-no-Hinotama, lit. jellyfish fireball), or Kurage-Bi (くらげ火 Kurage-Bi, lit. jellyfish flame), is a fire yōkai and a member of the Flame Yōkai Five.


Kurage-no-Hinotama's appearance is that of a large mass of light blue flames, with a head shaped similar to a bell, a long wavy body, and a short wispy tail, all in all, this makes him resemble a jellyfish. His face is composed of a pair of eyes with white sclerae and small black pupils, which is covered slightly by rough fringes of flames, a big nose, and a mouth. Surrounding his face is an intricate pattern that expands from the rest of his head to his body.[1]

Within the 2018 anime, Kurage-no-Hinotama appears as a small tan-colored flame spirit. His head is shaped like a jellyfish's bell and has a small wavy body. His eyes are rounded with a few lines underneath, tiny black pupils, and light yellow sclerae.[2] A different one later appears as a blue flame spirit, being puffier and has a pair of eyes with yellow sclerae and small black pupils.[3]
