|This article is about a/an monster in Shuriken Sentai Ninninger.|
Western Yokai Franken (西洋妖怪フランケン Seiyō Yōkai Furanken?) is one of three Western Yokai summoned by Ariakenokata. He is the ace of the Three Western Yokai. He can fire a beam from his abdomen to stop the movement of a machine.
Losing her paitence with the Japanese Yokai, which she saw as useless in the face of the Ninningers, Ariake no Kata summoned the three Western Yokai from Europe. Disguised in black cloaks, Franken flew to Japan with Dracula and Wolf Man.
Franken's likeness appeared among a set of Yokai karuta cards assembled by Shurikenger for the Ninningers to analyze the Yokai they had defeated so far. Due to Yokai Fudagaeshi's dark art Karuta Dance, Franken was one of six illusionary Yokai which manifested from their respective karuta cards in the Igasaki Ninjutsu Dojo. The illusionary Franken was subsequently destroyed by MomoNinger's Karakuri Hengen Sword.
