Nozuchi (野づち Nozuchi, lit. wild hammer, meaning wild spirit) is a serpent-like yōkai that can suck up anything in its path.
Vacuum Breath: Nozuchi can inhale objects including buildings like a tornado. In the third series, this ability was used as a main weapon for Yagyō-san's Yōkai Tank. In the fourth anime, this was explained as its intestine was connected to a fourth dimension. Kitarō fixed this with his Chanchanko to create a tornado of Yōkai energy.
