Giant Ogre of the Forbidden Tower is the sixty-fourth episode of the InuYasha anime.


  1. Tsubaki enters a tower that no one was ever meant to open, because a terrible ogre resides inside; Tsubaki uses the power of the Shikon no Tama to absorb the ogre and gain its awesome power and size.
  2. Inuyasha and his friends confront Tsubaki, who then proceeds to transform herself into a giant, red ogre.
  3. Inuyasha battles with the ogre Tsubaki, and eventually defeats her with the Bakuryūha; a Saimyōshō steals the Shikon no Tama shard from Tsubaki's eye and she reverts to her old self, and turns to ashes as she proclaims that she is the greatest miko.


Inuyasha kills some demons, and the priestesses awake. Miroku ruins the moment by flirting with them asking if they would bear his children.

Inuyasha defeats the demons and then Kagura appears and fights Inuyasha alongside a giant zombie warrior. After Inuyasha kills the warrior, Kagura leaves. Shippō and Miroku explain to the priestesses that they are not evil demons in response they fond over Kirara and a scared Shippo to the jealousy of Miroku.

Inuyasha, Kagome and Kaede go into the tower and Tsubaki absorbs the ogre and she becomes the ogre. Inuyasha and the now ogre Tsubaki battle; Inuyasha eventually defeats her with the Backlash Wave, destroying the ogre while Tsubaki survives. One of Naraku's poisonous insects steaks the Shikon Jewel fragment from her eye. Sango kills the insect but the jewel fragment is taken by Kagura. Without the Jewel, and with her demonic power having been destroyed earlier, Tsubaki's body turns to ashes as she slowly fades away.
