Yokai Daidarabotchi (妖怪ダイダラボッチ Yōkai Daidarabotchi?, lit. "Giant") is a Yokai which appear in Shuriken Sentai Ninninger.

Character History

Created when a corrupted Sealing Shuriken infected a power shovel, Daidarabotchi was awakened and along with a troop Jukkarage, they terrorize a nearby construction site. With Kinji Takigawa arrives first, he takes an interest on the new Yokai, and takes a picture with him but getting push aside after the latter's hatred for getting his picture taken. Nonetheless, Kinji transforms into StarNinger to take on Daidarabotchi, followed closely by the three newly arrived Aka, Ao, and ShiroNinger. During the battle, StarNinger saves a little girl that got caught up in the melee from Daidarabotchi's swing.

Eventually, StarNinger destroys Daidarabotchi with Wind Rockstar, while quickly takes the chance to get a second "selfie" with Daidarabotchi before his destruction, with Daidarabotchi exclaiming his dislike for getting his picture taken. Kyuemon quickly enlarge Daidarabotchi and the Ninningers summon their Otomo Nin into battle. Daidarabotchi met his demise at the hands of Shurikenjin Paon's Paon Boomerang and BisonKing's Arakure Buster.

What remains of the Yokai (his footprints) was captured by Kinji by using a plaster as part of his collection, though one of them were accidentally broken when Yoshitaka used arrows to announce a challenge to the Ninningers. Shinobi 10: Yee-haw! The Gold StarNinger

Daidarabotchi was among ten Yokai who appeared alongside Kyuemon Izayoi and the Western Yokai Wolf Man to Kinji in his vision after he had transformed into reincarnation of the Wolf Man, all bearing his face. When Kinji overcame his fear and doubt, and thus his Yokai side, he used the Demon Sword Urasame to vanquish all the illusionary Yokai and return to the real world.

Daidarabotchi'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, Daidarabotchi was one of six illusionary Yokai which manifested from their respective karuta cards in the Igasaki Ninjutsu Dojo. The illusionary Daidarabotchi was subsequently destroyed by KiNinger's Karakuri Hengen Claw. Shinobi 43: The Legendary Ninja! Yokai Karuta Tactics

Behind the Scenes



  • Unlike Giant Yokai Gashadokuro, while both Yokai were portrayed as giants in Japan folklores, only Daidarabotchi was displayed in a regular human sized appearance.
  • Daidarabotchi getting his footprints recorded in plaster castings may be a slight reference to Bigfoot, a cryptid from the North American continent infamous for leaving behind footprints, which have been recorded in plaster casts.
