The Kakasa is an umbrella with one eye in the center of its face, a short nose, a long tongue and one long leg. The Kakasa will always wear a sandal on their leg.
The Kakasa was first seen in the film where it came to life from a man's drawings. It danced and played with the man, before vanishing.
In this film, the Kakasa has an important role, and is one of the protagonists. It is the second Yokai seen in the film. it helped in the first battle with Daimon, but it to was defeated. It also helped organise the spirit army for the final battle with Daimon.
The Kakasa makes a cameo when all the various Yokai including the Kappa plan on what to do against the threat of being turned into mindless machines. It complained that it already partook in one war and that was enough.
In the 2007 live action Gegege no Kitaro film, the Kakasa was one of the yokai causing trouble for humans, running around and scaring them, and it took Kitaro's rocket propelled sandal to scare it off.
