Shinkenger Akaonikko


Nakinakite (ナキナキテ, 13): Nakinakite is an Ayakashi armed with the Niekane Jigokukon (沸鉄地獄棍, Seething Iron Hellish Cane), he is sent to deploy his Shiro-Oniko (白鬼子, Shirooniko, "White Oni Child") to take over a child's place, placing the original in a state of sadness. Nakinakite can also create the deadly infantile Aka-Oniko (赤鬼子, Akaoniko, "Red Oni Child") that latch onto his opponents and slowly increase in weight over time if unhappy, eventually crushing his opponents. Nakinakite is destroyed by ShinkenYellow and ShinkenPink with thier Dance of Heaven and Earth attack after knocking him into the air with thier Air and Earth Storm, removing the Akaonikko from the others. He then changed into his second life but was then destroyed by ShinkenOh after he was being weighed down by DaiTenku (thanks to some miscommunication). He and his Akaoniko are the basis of the Konaki-jijī (子泣き爺) of Japanese myth.

    • He is the first unadapted Ayakashi that appears in Shinkenger with the reason that he went unadapted being both due to his child form and the horrible red forms with black eyes that he uses he used on ShinkenBlue.
