Japanese - A shark-man, retainer of the Dragon Kings. When Samébito was dismissed from his post in the palace of the Dragon Kings, Totaro gave him a home in his lilypond. Totaro met a lovely girl, Tamana, but she refused to marry him unless he could give her 10,000 jewels. Knowing he could never win her, Totaro pined away and Samébito wept at the sight of his dying patron. The tears turned into rubies and Totaro soon recovered his health and persuaded Samébito to produce enough rubies for him to claim Tamana as his wife. Sometimes referred to as Samébito.
