Gagoze (ガゴゼ, Gagoze) is the chairman of the Gagoze Alliance and a former member of the Nura Clan. When he was alive, he committed evil deeds and, after death, he became a ghost and attacked youngsters at the temple where he had been buried. He is known as a yōkai who kidnaps and devours children[1].


500 Years AgoEdit

Gagoze was originally part of Nurarihyon's Hyakki Yakō, and took part in the battle against the Gyūki Clan which would lead to it merging with the Nura Clan.

400 Years AgoEdit

He was among the Nura Clan forces who attacked Ōsaka Castle, though he does not engage in a battle against any of the primary Kyoto yōkai.

4 Years AgoEdit

Gagoze has been slashed

Young Rikuo slashing Gagoze

Believing himself to be the logical choice for Third Head of the Nura Clan (even garnering the support of fellow board members Sorobanbō and Asajigahara no Kijo), he was stunned and angered that Nurarihyon's grandson Rikuo was named to the position instead. Gagoze and the members of the Gagoze Alliance then sought to kill Rikuo by attacking a school bus they believed him to be riding[2]. They trapped the bus in a caved-in underpass and, upon noticing that their intended target was missing, decided to simply kill the children riding anyway. However, Rikuo's "Night" form and Hyakki Yakō burst through the underpass' wall to save them. Gagoze's forces were easily defeated and in a desperation move he threatened to slaughter Rikuo's friends (Kana, Kiyotsugu and Shima) if his demands weren't met. Night Rikuo stopped this by slashing him in half with Nenekirimaru[3].
