|This article is about a/an monster in Samurai Sentai Shinkenger.|
Hachouchin (ハチョウチン, Hachōchin, 14): Hachouchin is an Ayakashi that has the features of an elephant and is capable of breathing fire. Being extremely short tempered, he actually provoked Dokoku Chimatsuri out of not being called forth before Dayuu Usukawa convinces him to turn his anger issue on the humans. When the Shinkengers attempt to fight him, they learn that only ShinkenBlue's Water Mojikara can wound him. He was first destroyed by the Kajiki Five Rings Bullet and then destroyed by Tenku ShinkenOh. His lantern-like appearance and powers are the basis of the Chōchinobake (提灯お化け) of Japanese myth.
- He is one of the few Ayakashi that were not adapted into Nighloks. The others were Nakinakite, Sasamatage, Chinomanako, Urawadachi, Kugutsukai, and Madakodama.
- This was probably because of the large amount of his footage involving ShinkenBrown.
