This Unnamed mantis yōkai (妖怪蟷螂, "Ookamakari") was a mantis yōkai who lured Miroku, disguised as a beautiful young woman, and cut his arm using a poisonous strike. Miroku uses his wind tunnel on her and she was sucked into it, "nicking" the sides of the wind tunnel.

Manga vs. AnimeEdit

  • In both the manga and anime, there are two mantis yōkai among the army of yōkai that attacks Miroku after he retreats to Mushin's temple. In the manga, it is revealed that they are the siblings of the female mantis yōkai, and they want revenge on Miroku. In the anime, they do not state that they are related to mantis that Miroku killed before.

TriviaEdit

  • The mantis demon disguised herself as a beautiful princess by devouring the real princess's insides and wearing her skin. This is similar to what the alien Bug does to the farmer Edgar in the film, Men in Black.
  • Her seiyū, Izumi Ōgami, also provided the voice for Kagura.
