Toda Buichi was a trusted general of Lord Mifune until he killed him for unknown reasons and is a villain in the Usagi Yojimbo comics. This made Lord Hikiji win over Mifune. However, Toda was beaten instead of getting a reward since Hikiji didn't like disloyalty even if it helped him. Toda later became a goblin after fleeing to the mountains. He preyed travelers and ate their flesh. Toda was slain by Usagi after encountering him. This act avenged Mifune.
