- "I was gonna eat you, too!"
- ―Gakitsuki's final words before his death[src]
Gakitsuki (ガキツキ 6, 7 & 53) is a hungry ghost Youkai with a big mouth and an even bigger appetite. Posing as an overweight Aproned Man (エプロンの男 Epuron no Otoko) with a second mouth on his belly.
While eating at a burger joint, Gakitsuki almost devours Seikai when the others came to his aid. Gakitsuki managed to escape the Shark Drive in the guise of a fly and hid away in Seikai's stomach. From there, Gakitsuki had Seikai start eating large amounts of food in an uncontrollable manner, turning him into an overweight giant before the others learn what happened. After a few failed attempts, the group have to consider leaving him behind. However, seeing Seikai in a new light, Tsuruhime assumes the form of a cheeseburger so Seikai can will himself from eating her in order for Gakitsuki to leave him. After being defeated by NinjaWhite and NinjaYellow, Gakitsuki enlarges before being destroyed by Muteki Shogun.
Gakitsuki reappeared, along with all the other defeated Youkai, within the Seal Door after their master Daimaou was finally contained there by the Kakurangers. Reeling that they were now powerless in captivity, the Youkai all vowed that they would one day be reborn and regain their power, cursing humanity.
