Nuppefuhofu (ヌッペフホフ Nuppefuhofu, 32 & 53): A Youkai who can steal people's faces simply by licking their faces.

Character History

The wings on its back also seemed to act like a jack-o-lantern style mask which it used to cover its face. One of the faces he stole was Saizou's, however, he and all the other victims' faces were restored once Nuppefuhofu was killed by Super Kakure Daishogun. Ep. 32: Don't Lick Me, Face Thief

Nuppefuhofu reappeared, along with all the other defeated Youkai, within the Seal Door after their master Daimaou was finally contained there by the Kakurangers. Reeling that they were now powerless in captivity, the Youkai all vowed that they would one day be reborn and regain their power, cursing humanity. Final Ep.: Sealing!!
