Backbeard is a demon in the series.

History[edit | edit source]

Backbeard is a boogeyman youkai (sometimes known as a demon or ghost) that appeared from the Japanese manga series GeGeGe no Kitaro. He's an original creation of Shigeru Mizuki, and in his works is depicted as one of Kitaro's main opponents and the leader of "western youkai" such as classic horror movie monsters, witches and gremlins. Mizuki based Backbeard either on Odilon Redon's paintings, which often featured eyeball motifs, or on Masatoshi Naitō's collage Shinjuku Phantom Chimera.

The name is likely derived from the European "Bugbear," another term for the boogeyman, and first appeared in some Japanese publications in the early 1960s.
