"Right. I get it!"
―Sunasusuri's first words after Akumaro told him of his scheme (off-screen).[src]

"Shinkengers?! Akumaro-san's orders. I'm supposed to turn this into a Gaki Hell. Eat and drink all you want, you'll just hunger more! Those bathed in my sand suffer from a thirst as bad as death!"
―Sunasusuri when confronted by the Shinkengers.[src]

"Why?!"
―Sunasusuri having seeing Super Shinken Yellow dodge multiple energy blasts and his final words before his initial defeat.[src]

"I'll crush you!"
―Sunasusuri when he enlarged.[src]

"You're in the way!"
―Sunasusuri when Saru Origami leapt onto his head to blind him and his final words before his death.[src]

Sunasusuri (スナススリ Sunasusuri, 41) is an Ayakashi armed with the Kyōsa Kanbatsutō (凶砂旱魃刀 Evil Sand Drought Sword) who serves under Akumaro. In addition to his sand, he also uses pepper-shaped explosives, needle projectiles, and a tongue beam.

History

Sunasusuri uses his sand to induce an insatiable appetite in humans to create the conditions of a Preta Hell (餓鬼地獄 Gaki Jigoku) for Akumaro's plan. After being slain by Super Shinken Yellow, utilizing the Mougyu Bazooka to finish him off with the Heretic Ruination attack, he is destroyed by SamuraiHaOh and its Daishinken Big Spin Slash, which is a version of its signature attack involving it jumping high into the air, spinning rapidly vertically as it descends, and then striking, after the Saru Origami blinded him by latching onto his face.

Yokai Origin

According to folklore, the Preta (餓鬼 Gaki) is a supernatural being with a thin body and insatiable hunger. Perhaps this legend originates from the people affected by Sunasusuri's sand.

Notes

Concept art by Tamotsu Shinohara

  • His name is a combination of suna (砂, sand) and susu (煤, soot).
  • His motif is the gaki, also known as the Preta or hungry ghost, and his design combines dried persimmons and teeth.
