Nurarihyon (Japanese: ぬらりひょん Nurarihyon) is a Shadowside Yo-kai of the Onnen tribe.

Specifically, this is the appearance of Zazel for the Shadowside series, 30 years after the present series.



In his Lightside form, Nurarihyon is very similar to his original form, although he wears a slightly altered robe. His staff depicts an Onimaro whose eye has been seen changing from red, green, and yellow.

His Shadowside form, if he has one, has not yet been revealed.

He is still a servant of Enma, serving him alongside Whisper 2040.
