Eye monster (化け物, Bakemono) was a minor yōkai who was a rejected part of Naraku's body.


Naraku detached this yōkai from his body after he escaped a confrontation against Inuyasha and Sesshōmaru at his castle.[1] He was in pursuit of a Shikon Jewel shard that was in the possession of an elderly bandit named Kansuke. He crashed through an abandoned temple where Kansuke and the priestess Kikyō had taken shelter. Kikyō sensed his presence and thought that it was Naraku before his arrived. He restrained Kikyō with his hair while demanding the Shikon Jewel. Kikyō asked what his relation to Naraku was since his aura was similar to his. He grew angrier after hearing Naraku's name due to being rejected and deformed by him and revealed that he needed the jewel in order to make himself a new body. Kansuke tried to destroy him with a bow and arrow, but the yōkai was able to easily repel it. He angrily grabbed Kansuke with his hair while once again demanding the jewel. Kansuke then attached his jewel shard to an arrow and struck one of his large eyes. This hurt him long enough for Kansuke and Kikyō to be freed. Kikyō shot her sacred arrow at him and the monster burst into flames.[2]


This yōkai despises Naraku for deforming his body after abandoning him. He becomes obsessed with obtaining a new body for himself by using the Shikon no Tama.[2]

Physical description[]
