Ohaguro-Bettari (お歯黒べったり, lit. Nothing but blackened teeth) is a female human-like yōkai.


She is a yōkai similar to the Nopperabō, but with a gaping mouth of blackened teeth.

In the fifth anime, Ohaguo-Bettari's appearance is that of a woman in a two-layered kimono, the outer layer being velvet red, while the inner layer is red and an orange obi. Her most noticeable feature is her lack of a face, only having a mouth full of blackened teeth. She has long gray hair that reaches to shoulder.

Her appearance in the sixth anime is the same with her fifth anime incarnation, having virtually no difference.[1]



First Anime

She briefly appears in the first anime adaption. Namely, these appearances are in episode seven and ten, Ghost Train[2] and The Great Yōkai War (Part 1).[3]

2007 Anime

In the fifth anime adaption, Ohaguro-Bettari frequently appears throughout the series as a resident of Yōkai Yokochō.

2018 Anime

She appears as one of the yōkai on the Ghost Train scaring the Company Boss until he attempts to exit the the train by jumping out of a window.[1]

She is among the yōkai gathered around the GeGeGe House, trying to drive Agnès out of the forest. She listens as Medama-Oyaji warns that if they drive her out then the tragedy Malay yōkai will just repeat elsewhere. Soon followed by Kitarō as he explains how grave the consequences are if Japan becomes a part of Backbeard's empire. This causes the crowd to look at one another, until their attention is drawn to Kitarō as he stands on his resolve to fight.[4]



The Ohaguro-Bettari of legend wears a bridal kimono since in Japan long ago, blackened teeth was once a sign of married status. Also some people say she is the ghost of bride or of a woman so ugly, she couldn't find a husband.
