|This article is about a/an villain in Ninja Sentai Kakuranger.|
Nurarihyon (ヌラリヒョン Nurarihyon) was leader of the Youkai Army Corps during Japan's feudal period.
After Daimaou was sealed by the three holy men that would become the Three God Generals a millenia ago, the Youkai turned to Nurarihyon to lead them. However, he suffered the same fate six centuries later at the hands of five legendary ninja: Sasuke Sarutobi, Saizou Kirigakure, Seikai Miyoshi, Jiraiya, and Tsuruhime, the ancestors of the Kakurangers. His fate remains unknown, as he is never seen again after being sealed.

Behind the Scenes
- Nurarihyon is, like all Kakuranger Yokai, based on a creature from Japanese mythology, in this case, he is based on Nurarihyon, a creature usually depicted as an old man with a gourd-shaped head and wearing a kesa sometimes said to be leader of the yōkai, although he bears little resemblance to the original stories.
- Inciserator - Power Rangers counterpart in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. See comparison page. (Inciserator is not a direct counterpart to Nurarihyon, but rather a composite monster created from the costumes of other monsters, including Nurarihyon's head.)
