Odoro-Odoro (おどろおどろ Odoro-Odoro, lit. eerie, "odoro" also means "thicket" or "bush", so roughly Creepy Bush), or Otoroshi (おとろし) is a hair yōkai.

Appearance

Odoro-Odoro are masters of disguise. When not disguised, they appear to be a type of four-legged beast with a wild mane. They also have claws and tusks.Its face somewhat resembles a Hannya.

In the 2007 anime, its skin color is green.

Personality

Within the sixth anime, Shōgo's personality is mostly suppressed by the Odoro-Odoro's. In this state he behaves similar to that of a beast and mainly acts on instinct. Because of this his mindset is rather narrow and is driven to consume human blood. Shōgo describes that in this mental state he becomes a monster who only ever thinks about fresh blood, preventing him from committing suicide. However Shōgo is able to, albeit faintly, control his actions while in this state, originally fleeing once his daughter tried to stop Kitarō and though later giving in to drink her blood, had a look of remorse, begging to be stopped.
