"The Tenjoname Yokai" ( (てん) (じょう)なめ (よう) (かい) (まき),   Tenjōname Yōkai no Maki) is the tenth episode of Go! Kotaro Ushiwaka.


As an exhausted Nyudo collapsed on the steps of an old temple, the Tenjoname Yokai who inhabited the area took notice and seized the opportunity to begin licking his head. Nyudo soon awoke and ran away frightened upon seeing the yokai standing over him. As he galloped hysterically, Nyudo was stopped by an approaching Kotaro Ushiwaka and Uragira who led him back to the temple to confront the yokai. There, the Tenjoname Yokai sat perched on the temple rafters drinking from Nyudo's canteen of sake, but began throwing spears at the group upon noticing their presence. The yokai soon jumped down to confront Kotaro, wielding another spear. Though the two managed to disarm one another, they continued their fight barehanded. Eventually, Kotaro knocked the Tenjoname Yokai to the ground and held his arm behind his back, prompting the yokai to surrender. The yokai, who'd apparently now befriended the trio, helped push them on a swing set. However, Nyudo clumsily fell off, prompting laughter from the rest of the group.
