Ongokuki (音獄鬼, おんごくき, "Ogre of Underworld Melody") was a yōkai who abducted human children, and sold them to other yōkai by using a flute.

HistoryEdit

Ongokuki had abducted all the children from a village in one night.

He abducted Rin by using his flute to hypnotize her. Jaken tried to stop Rin from following Ongokuki, but she disappeared. He brought Rin to a cave. He removed a boulder that covered the entrance to the cave and lured Rin inside. He stayed inside the cave to watch over the children. She was no longer under his control and saw that she was with the other children that he kidnapped. They were scared and were crying to go home. Ongokuki yelled at them to be quiet. Rin told the children not to be scared since she believed Sesshōmaru would come to save her.

Ongokuki suddenly sensed something outside. He left the cave to see what it was and saw a group of children standing in front of him. He played his flute in attempt to capture them, but the did not move. He walked closer towards the children to see why they were not affected by his flute, only to discover that the children where actually straw dummies that were used to lure him out. He was suddenly surrounded by a group of monks that were lead by Ungai, who were hired by the village of kidnapped children to find them. Ungai's disciples circled around Ongokuki while they each held out a rosary to stun him. They then placed sutras on his body. Ungai pointed his staff at Ongokuki and used his spiritual powers to burst the yōkai into flames.
