Takekiri-Danuki (竹切り狸 Takekiri-Danuki, Bamboo cutting Tanuki) is a tanuki and antagonist of Kitarō, though only in the manga. He is more commonly known as a close friend of Mannen-Dake, and Yamako is his minion.
Takekiri-Danuki hold a grudge against Kitarō as Mannen-Dake was defeated and tried to revenge on him. He lured Kitarō to a bamboo forest by making him to ride on the stilts he controlled, and ordered Yamako to fight him to measure the target's powers. After Yamako's defeat, the tanuki appeared and one-sidedly attacked Kitarō as the latter was attached to the stilts by tanuki's power. He sucked Kitarō into his testicles and was pleased with the outcome, but was defeated when Tsurube-Bi came to aid and burned tanuki's testicles.
