- ""Damn you Shinkengers!"
- ―Oborojime when he enlarged.[src]
Oborojime (オボロジメ 46): Oborojime is an Ayakashi armed with the Chikemuri Sakanokotō (血煙逆鋸刀 Blood-Spray Wicked Sawblade). He was the final Ayakashi of the series.
Sent by Shitari of the Bones to increase enough human suffering to wake Dokoku Chimatsuri from his slumber, Oborojime was given half of Shitari's life force which gave him an additional third life, a serpentine mist-like form. His first two lives were taken by the Mougyu Bazooka's Heretic Ruination and Tenkuu ShinkenOh's Tenkuu Bamboo Slice, but he mutated into his third, serpentine form. This form ripped apart Tenkuu ShinkenOh but they formed SamuraiHaOh and easily destroyed Oborojime for good with the Mojikara Great Shot Circle. Though Oborojime failed, Shitari's plan didn't, as Dokoku did resurrect sooner from Oborojime's lengthy efforts.
When he was powered by Shitari's life force, Oborojime's abilities include strangling people with tentacles that come out of his clawed left hand, breathing a stinky mist from his mouth, and laser blasts from both his left hand and left spikey side. In his third life, he could attack agressively at a fast rate and shoot fireballs from his mouth. The third life makes him feral and incapable of speech.
Due to Shitari giving his second life to Oborojime, Shitari wasn't able to revive after being destroyed by the Gokaigers.
According to folklore, the enraenra (煙羅煙羅 enraenra) is a yokai composed of smoke and darkness. The dark smoke associated with Oborojime's attacks may be the basis of this legend.
