The Thunder Brothers (雷獣兄弟, "Raijū Kyōdai"), also known as the Thunder Beast Brothers, are two demon brothers, named Hiten and Manten. They and their sister Sōten are the last surviving members of the Thunder Demon Tribe. However, the Thunder Brothers are much stronger than their little sister, who instead has developed her tactical genius to compensate for her small stature and lack of raw power. The Thunder Brothers often kidnap attractive women, both human and demon, and use them for food and sex respectively. They killed Shippō's father to get a shard of the Shikon Jewel. Manten made himself a sash with Shippō's father's hide (a belt to remember killing the father). Shippō tries to get revenge on them by stealing shards of the Shikon no Tama from Inuyasha and Kagome, but soon works with them to kill the Thunder Brothers (though Inuyasha did most of the fighting). Both of the Thunder Brothers are ultimately killed by Inuyasha.
