Gengetsu Kibaoni (牙鬼幻月 Kibaoni Gengetsu, lit. "Fanged Oni Paraselene") is the leader of Kibaoni Army Corps and true main antagonist of Shuriken Sentai Ninninger. He is always on track to terrorize humans to gain power.



Gengetsu Kibaoni as a human warlord.

In 1571, Gengetsu Kibaoni was formerly an evil feudal warlord during the Sengoku Era who believed that fear was the best method of uniting the war-torn Japan. Though Kibaoni was killed by the ninjas of the Igasaki Clan, he vowed he would return in 444 years to unite the world in terror. Hundreds of years later during an unspecific year, Kibaoni and his three generals resurrected as demons but were all single handily defeated by by Yoshitaka Igasaki and sealed away the using 48 Sealing Shuriken.


Due to a now realized miscalculation of dating, it is revealed by Tsumuji Igasaki that Kibaoni's true revival will actually happen in the year 2015. It begins when Kyuemon Izayoi manages to free the warlord and his forces. Lacking physical form upon his release, Kibaoni tasks his retainers to gather fear so he can reconstitute himself, creating Yokai by sending out the now-corrupted Sealing Shuriken and combining them with inanimate objects.

Yoshitaka had already anticipated of such results, creating the OtomoNin via cooperation with alien races and passing the mantle of ninja to his grandchildren to become the Ninningers to face Gengetsu Kibaoni and his Kibaoni Army Corps. However, it would be seemed that Yoshitaka purposely use his sealing technique instead of obliterating Gengetsu with the End Shuriken. His reasoning for doing so is currently unknown.

A group of giant Gengetsu Kibaoni fakes created by Ungaikyo.

Gengetsu Kibaoni seemingly returned when, as the Ninningers encountered Yokai Ungaikyo, numerous giant copies of Kibaoni suddenly appeared and attacked the city, allowing Kyuemon to collect fear from the civilians. However, the Kibaonis were revealed to be illusions created by the balloons distributed by Ungaikyo when a shot fired by AkaNinger's Karakuri Hengen bow passed through a Kibaoni and popped one of Ungaikyo's balloons, simultaneously erasing one of the fakes. Having long since suspected this, Kasumi appeared with a device which she used to disrupt Ungaikyo's abilities and destroy his balloons via wavelength overload, causing all the Gengetsu holograms to disappear.

After the revival of Masakage Tsugomori, Gengetsu contacted his subordinates and ordered them to gather more fear, expressing joy at the news that the world was slowly falling into turmoil due to his army's rampage. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Shinobi 13: Burning! Ninja Sports Day

At Tsugomori's request, Gengetsu himself used two Sealing Shuriken to create a particularly powerful Yokai that could match the Ninningers. Combining the Shuriken with a toolbox, the Advanced Yokai Nue was created. With Nue proving to be more than a match for the Ninningers, Gengetsu personally commands him to finish them and their OtomoNin. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Shinobi 19: Search For It!

Later, Tsugomori once again contacted Gengetsu to ask his permission to summon more Advanced Yokai. Gengetsu accepted, imbuing ten of the remaining corrupted Sealing Shuriken with his own power before addressing his wife Ariake no Kata, who had been revived in the interim, telling her to not cause too much trouble for Tsugomori.

In the final battle, Gengetsu absorbed his own son, Kyuemon Izayoi, and grew giant. Though he overpowered Gekiatsu Dai-Oh, once the Ninninger made it clear they are only fighting strictly by personal choice, rather than fate as a result of their linage, it allows Kyuemon to turn against his father and break free. The Ninninger then finish off Gengetsu with Gekiatsu Dai Fever.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Shinobi Final Chapter: To a Future Without Hiding, Wasshoi!

Kibaoni was one of five villains who were revived by Gillmarda to fight the Ninningers and Zyuohgers. Overwhelming the two Red warriors, AkaNinger and Zyuoh Eagle, Kibaoni was held off by Yamato as Zyuoh Gorilla before Yosiharu and Tsumuji Igasaki arrived to assist Takaharu, forming a trio of AkaNinger generations whom destroyed Kibaoni again.

While his belief in uniting Japan and later the world in fear makes him a powerful warlord, he is also a competent schemer as he has come up with contingency plans and due dates for the return that he planned to do in 2015. This also makes him a patient one, willing to wait as long as 444 years to take his vengeance and resume his fear ruling goals. He seems to get along well with his generals, listening to their requests to gather fear for him and willing to assist in any plan they came up with whenever he could, as he does when granting Masakage's request to create an Advanced Yokai

Ultimately however, he is a foil to the family of the Igasaki Clan, having none of the concerns of family and willing to sacrifice his own to gain more power. Even outside of absorbing both his wife and firstborn son, he doesn't react the slightest to the death of his secondborn and in fact used it as means to revive fully and nothing more.


Powers and Abilities

    Yokai Creation: By using one or more of Yoshitaka's 48 Sealing Shuriken, Gengetsu can corrupt any targeted object and transform it into a Yokai.

  • Darkness Manipulation: After being reborn as a ghost, Gengetsu can manipulate darkness to his own liking.
    • Hitokarage Summon: By sending a torrent of darkness, Gengetsu can manifest Hitokarage to assist his Yokai or generals in combat.
    • Apparition: Though his body may not fully be revived yet, Gengetsu can appear as a specter in order to communicate. Appearing through a pool of darkness to communicate with his servants at his lair, Gengetsu can also manifest as a phantom of his giant form.
  • Fear Empowerment: To fully revive, Gengetsu must be nourished with human fear. Currently, Kyuemon Izayoi has been tasked to collect fear to restore him.

Behind the Scenes

Concept Art


"Gengetsu" means "crescent moon" in Japanese.


  • Kibaoni's prediction that he would be back in 444 years is based on superstitious belief of the Japanese that the number 4 is a number of death. This is due to the homophone sounds of the words in the Japanese Language (Shi), despite having differing Kanji.
