Backbeard is a demon in the series.

History

Backbeard is a boogeyman youkai (sometimes known as a demon or ghost) originating from the Japanese manga series GeGeGe no Kitaro. He's an original creation of Shigeru Mizuki, in whose works he is depicted as one of Kitaro's main opponents as well as the leader of "Western Youkai", a group that includes 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.
