Ohaguro-Bettari (お歯黒べったり Ohaguro-Bettari, meaning. Nothing but blackened teeth) is yōkai woman where much like the Nopperabō, she has no face but does have a mouth of blackened teeth.

Appearance

In the 2007 anime, Ohaguo-Bettari is a woman with long gray hair that reaches to her shoulder. Her most noticeable feature is her lack of a face, only having a mouth full of blackened teeth. She wears a two-layered kimono, the outer layer being velvet red with a black trim, while the inner layer has a red trim and an orange obi, and a pair of geta with white tabi socks.

Within the 2018 anime, Ohaguro-Bettari's appearance has virtually no difference from her design in the 2007 anime, being a faceless woman with only a mouth of blackened teeth and long gray hair. Her outfit consists of a velvet red kimono, with a black and red trim, a yellow obi, and a pair of geta with white tabi socks.[1]
