History

Kitarō Kunitori Monogatari

Although he was summoned from Shikoku to aid Kitarō and others to capture an egg-shaped UFO which was an order of the deputy prime minister of Japan, he was a rough individual. Being irritated with the quick-moving UFO, he ignored the priority and crushed the UFO with his foot, killing the alien inside, but he was happy with the outcome. Humans accused his actions and told Kitarō and others to take him home.

Fifth Anime

Tearai-oni Warrior

He appears in GeGeGe no Kitarō: Nippon Bakuretsu!! He is one of the chosen 47 Yōkai Warriors and represents Kagawa Prefecture.

Due to the fifth anime adaption's sudden cancellation at 100 episodes, he is among the 23 Yokai Warriors that were not revealed aside from the movie. 

Sixth Anime

He briefly appears in episode #48 The Void of Despair and Darkness along with many other yōkai.
