Shōkera (しょうけら Mole Cricket Spirit) is a yōkai.
In the fifth anime, Shōkera appears as a green-skinned yōkai, with brown hair that is styled upward, pointy ears, eyes with yellow sclerae and small black pupils. He has black pointy finger nails and a long red tongue. His only pieces of clothing are the sharp white-blue teeth necklace, the pale red violet wrists bands, matching loincloth and the pair of brown boots.
Within the sixth anime, Shōkera appears as a yōkai with a slim build and thin limbs, having three digits per limb and three protrusions pointing upward.
He later appears in the story Yōkai Police vs The Heinous Yōkai Shōkera. He breaks out of Yōkai Prison and runs away to the human realm to find a dead body to possess. However, the corpse he hides in belonged to career criminal Matsugorō Daimon and he soon finds himself hunted by the police. While evading Kitarō, he is scratched by a claw and his blood clots, freezing him in place. Now trapped in Daimon's body, he is arrested by the human police.
