Tsukumo is a major antagonist in the video game; Viewtiful Joe: Red Hot Rumble. He's a ghost-like creature with multiple spirits living within various film equipment and Miss Bloody Rachel.


Tsukumo was haunting the movie set where Blue was filming his latest movie. At first, his presence goes unnoticed, but, as time went on, he silently arranges to sabotage the picture by stealing and/or replacing props and putting the crew in increasingly dangerous situations. He becomes enraged because of all the mechanical cameras, microphones, and other movie-making devices are never given an actual role in the very movies they help to make.

Tsukumo engaging the heroes

Enraged, Tsukumo engaged Viewtiful Joe and his friend. After being defeated, Joe explains that the cameras, microphones, and other equipment play an integral part in the process. After hearing what had Joe said, Tsukumo leaves happily. Blue, meanwhile, decides to make Tsukumo the star of his picture, much to everyone's shock.


  • Due to him actually being made up of several filming equipment structures, he refers to himself as "we," instead of "I."
