Youkai Kusaregedo (妖怪 腐れ外道, Yōkai Kusaregedō), also sometimes called "Gedo Kusaregedo", appears for first time in Samurai Shodown V.
During his concept stages, the creators wanted to add a "giant bald character" who was a "yōkai" to replace the character Earthquake. Creators wanted his character to make the line "Itadakimasu" very memorable. In the end, the design they created was "a mix of Genan and Earthquake". He was designed by Yasuhiro Nightow.
He is voiced by Gō Shinomiya and Tarō Masuoka.
Kusaregedo was once a very kind man, but is transformed after his death into a gaki because of his cannibalism habit. In his present demonic form, he is cursed with an insatiable appetite. One day, he smells a young girl (Rimururu) not too far away and he quickly gives chase. He fails to capture and devour her, and instead finds a girl named Hakana, his daughter. She pleads for him to stop and to come back home. Sadly, he devours her. His current whereabouts are unknown.
