|This article is about a/an monster in Samurai Sentai Shinkenger.|
Tsubotoguro (ツボトグロ, Tsubotoguro, 42): Tsubotoguro is an Ayakashi who serves under Akumaro, able to unleash a swarm of insects from his body. Sent by Akumaro, he was tasked with using his swarm to cause human misey in order to produce the final wedge for Akumaro's plan. After being slain by Super Shinken Red, he is destroyed by DaiKaiShinkenOh with the Ika Tenkuu Buster. The insects he releases, resembling disembodied heads, make him the basis of the Hitōban (飛頭蛮) of Chinese myth.
- Tsubotoguro is the final monster faced in the 2000's.
- The next episode, which was the final episode aired in the 2000's, did not feature any Ayakashi and the episode after that aired in Janurary 2010.
