|This article is about a/an villain in Shuriken Sentai Ninninger.|
Kyuemon Izayoi (十六夜 九衛門 Izayoi Kyūemon) is the only female general of the Kibaoni Army Corps and she is the reserved page of Kibaoni. She commands the Yokai and always gathers the "Power of Fear" in her Hyotan (瓢箪 Hyōtan) container.
Kyuemon first appeared during the destruction of the Igasaki Dojo home, where she picked up a gavel from the burning ruins within a box by phasing her hand through it while Hitokarage fought Takaharu as AkaNinger. She later appears at the site where Gengetsu Kibaoni was sealed, and with the pilfered hammer, used it to free him from his sealed state, leading to the full revival of the Kibaoni Army Corps.
Powers and Abilities
- She can retrieve the gavel in a box without open it.
- Kyuemon Izayoi controls a mallet in which YoShuriken are set, utilizing it in a way similar to the Ninningers. Her Goton-YoShuriken allows her to enlarge the fallen yokai with the Hidaibansoku no Jutsu (肥大蕃息 a 4-kanji proverb meaning to grow and multiply rapidly). She is also able to summon the giant Gashadokuro at will with a specific YoShuriken. The Goton Yoshuriken has the kanji for “evil” (邪) and the Gashadokuro YoShuriken has the kanji for “smash” (砕)
- Gavel and Yo Shurikens
- Kyuemon wields a small gold ceremonial gavel that she stole from the ruins of the Igasaki Ninjutsu dojo, which can be installed with a Goton Yo Shuriken, allowing her to perform witchcraft, allowing her to unseal Gengetsu Kibaoni or to grow the Youkai monsters that are created for use in the Kibaoni Army Corps.
- Gourd Container
- As the Kibaoni Army Corps commence their acts of villainy, this special hyotan gourd gathers the "Power of Fear" in what seems to be liquid form. In order to do so, the gourd must be nearby, so Kyuemon is often close by when the Kibaoni forces are creating havoc.
Behind the Scenes
- The "Izayoi" of her name refers to the "16th day moon", which is commonly known as the "full moon".
- Kyuemon is based on the nine-tailed kitsune (九尾の狐 Kyūbi no Kitsune). Considering her white pelts, she could be an evil parody of the Shinto god Inari's messengers, the Zenko (善狐 lit. "Good Fox"), which are said to take the form of white foxes.
- The gavel's shape can be referred to a folklore treasure, the Uchide no Kozuchi, the legendary lucky hammer.
