The Great Yokai War

Aburasumashi is one of the Yokai that gathered to discuss the threat to their species. Despite hearing all the reasons to fight for yokai, the Aburasumashi leaves. It does, however, return later when the rumor of a 'massive party' was just so happening on the enemy's base and was one of the millions of yokai to show up. Due to the rowdy nature of Yokai, it started fighting anything that came near it.



Aburasumashi can use his staff in combat.

Head Inflation
