"I'll quickly draw forth human sadness. Look forward to it."
―Kugutsukai's first words[src]

"So I'm noticed. I have no choice. Don't interfere. I will use all the controlled humans here to fight."
―Kugustukai's first words after the Shinkengers find out.[src]

"How dare you guys do that to me!"
―Kugutsukai after growing giant[src]

"Unforgivable!"
―Kugutsukai’s last words before his death[src]

Kugutsukai (クグツカイ Kugutsukai, 30) is an Ayakashi who serves under Akumaro and is able to control people with strings like a puppeteer. His strings can also be used as a lasso from his arms.

Character History

Kugutsukai targets the Takashiro Academy where he intends to create a puppet army out of the student body. Once he is discovered, he uses his army on the Shinkengers. He is slain by Super Shinken Blue by striking him from below where the controlled humans can't reach before being destroyed again by the accidentally formed Shinken DaiGoyou.

Yokai Origin

According to folklore, the kosode-no-te (小袖の手) is a yokai that appears as a pair of ghostly hands. Perhaps the way Kugutsukai moves his hands while we controls humans is the basis of this legend.
