The Gashadokuro is a supporting antagonist of the 2016 stop-motion animated film, Kubo and the Two Strings, acting as a guardian to the first part of Hanzo's magical armor, the Sword Unbreakable.


Acting as a guardian to Hanzo's sword, the Gashadokuro possesses no actual will of its own, having made with the express purpose of killing anyone who wishes to take the sword.


  • The Gashadokuro is never named in the film itself, named as such after the yokai of the same name.
  • It is never explicitly stated how the gashadokuro came to be, but it is very likely that the Moon King himself created it (or had it made on his behalf).
