— Kotaro Ushiwaka introduces himself (Go! Kotaro Ushiwaka Episode 1: Volume of Kotaro's Birth)

Kotaro Ushiwaka (牛若小太郎,   Ushiwaka Kotarō) is a ninja kaijin created by Toho that first appeared in the 1974 Toho tokusatsu series, Go! Kotaro Ushiwaka.


Kotaro Ushiwaka wears yellow ninja garbs which are red on the inside, red fingerless gloves, and a white mask over his mouth. He also has a red rope tied around his waist presumably functioning as a belt, and as a holster of sorts for his dagger which is tucked under it. He also wears a pair of blue tabi underneath sandal-like footwear similar to the traditional Japanese geta.


Go! Kotaro Ushiwaka




  • Kotaro Ushiwaka uses a naginata, a long staff with a bladed tip, in combat.
  • Kotaro Ushiwaka uses a large dagger-like weapon, similar to the tanto used by samurai in fuedal Japan.

Eight-Phase Slash

  • Using an ability named Eight-Phase Slash (八相斬り,   Hassō Kiri), Kotaro Ushiwaka can create a multitude of duplicates of himself and command all of them to slash at an enemy.[1] This is used exclusively as a finishing move.
