- "Youkai Hunter! You...your kind...will be wiped out in time!"
- ―Western Youkai Wolf Man's final words before his destruction.[src]
Western Yokai Wolf Man (西洋妖怪オオカミオトコ Seiyō Yōkai Ōkami-otoko) is one of three Western Yokai summoned by Ariakenokata. He is the joker of the Three Western Yokai. Wolfman has the ability to be invulnerable to any human attack and can turn the people he injures into fellow Wolfmen. His signature attack is the Bloody Moon where he would raise his arms around his sides and above his head, forming a full moon behind him. He would then yell the attacks name and swing his arms very rapidly, throwing red energy waves from his palms.
HistoryThis werewolf-like Youkai killed Kinji Takigawa's father Junji and older brother Reiji during his childhood in America.
Losing her paitence with the Japanese Yokai, which she saw as useless in the face of the Ninningers, Ariake no Kata summoned the three Western Yokai from Europe. Disguised in black cloaks, Wolf Man flew to Japan with Franken and Dracula.
