Mabyō (魔猫 Mabyō, lit. demon cat) is a cat yōkai.


In the manga, Mabyō resembles a cat with dark fur, a squashed nose, a bushy tail and a mouth filled with sharp teeth. Additionally he has eyes with thin slit pupils and unlike normal cats, can walk erect, due to being a yōkai. He is larger than most cat yōkai, where he is taller than a small building.[1]

In the sixth anime, Mabyō appears relatively the same, appearing as an anthropomorphic cat with black fur, a long bushy tail, a squashed nose and a mouth filled with sharp teeth. In addition his eyes have yellow sclerae and thin black pupils. While still very large, his size is relatively smaller than in the manga, being only a little taller than an human adult.[2]




Mabyō appears in the story, Mabyō.[1]

Sixth Anime

Mabyō appears in the 65th episode of the sixth anime adaptation, Foundation!? Mabyō's Great Tottori Empire.[2]


Nine souls: In the manga, he was a formidable foe to defeat, as he has nine souls.

Human Possession: In the manga, he is capable of possessing humans, using this power on the school teacher Ms. Kurozuka.

Brainwashing: By moving his paws in a scratching motion beside his face, he can brainwash his targets into overtly loving the Tottori Prefecture. However those who already love the prefecture above all else are immune.[2]

Shapeshifting: Mabyō is capable of changing his appearance into that of a human, having done so to assume the identity of Masashi Nozawa.[2]

Energy Wave: Mabyō can create a wave of purple energy at his target by slashing the air. It is strong enough to destroy a piece of a room's ceiling.[2]

Tottori Trance: A special concoction created using a combination of Mabyō's Yōkai power and the Tottori specialties, Matsuba crab, snow crab, Nijisseiki pears and Ojo mackerel essence. According to him it is capable of putting people under his brainwashing, making them worshipers for his Great Tottori Empire.[2]
