Tsuchi-Korobi (土転び, lit. Earth Roller) is a Yōkai that rolls around the forest in the form of a ball of soil.

Appearance

There are two or three types of Tsuchi-Korobi. Tsuchi-Korobi's appearance is that of giant mass of brown hair, with an elephant trunk, or arm in some adaptations, as their only appendage, just below their small eye.

In manga and in 1971 anime, Tsuchi-Korobi's race was thought to be extinct, but a remnant cell was underwater and a human absorbed scientific waste water from a factory turned into a new Tsuchi-Korobi.
