Although he claims to be Dandoodle 30 years later, it is unlikely they are the same character.
- Yo-kai Watch Shadowside anime: Minor Yo-kai
Shibumenken is an anthropomorphic beagle Yo-kai. He wears a light brown Sherlock Holmes-style suit and a hat that matches his suit.
In his Shadowside form, Menkueater is a monstrous beagle-like creature. His hat is gone, and his sleeves in his suit are torn. He has the head of a beagle, a dog-like snout, canine teeth, yellow eyes, and his skin is much of a darkish tone of brown.
In battle, Menkueater can steal faces from his victims in order to make himself handsome with his claw-like suckers.
In his youth, he used to be known as the Yo-kai Dandoodle, but as the years went on and he continued to age, he lost his handsomeness and became Shibumenken.
Shibumenken is a portmanteau of shibumen (Japanese: 渋メン), which unlike Ikemen (Japanese: イケメン "young, handsome guy"), refers to slightly older, more rugged-looking men, as well as Jinmenken (Japanese: 人面犬).
- His human disguise looks very similar to Dandoodle's human self in the original series including having the exact same hairstyle.
- It is currently unknown whether or not Shibumenken is alive in the anime, due to the fact that he was attacked by Jorogumo (Shadowside), who eats her victims.
- There is a possibility that this is actually Manjimutt in 30 years. Some proof is the brown fur that he has.
