Shippeitaro

Japanese - A dog. A cat-monster every year demanded a maiden who was safely fastened in a cage and then devoured her. This happened until a knight took pity on the villagers and put himself in the cage with the dog, Shippeitaro. When the cat appeared, the dog seized it while the knight killed it with his sword. The dog then killed all the cat's attendants. Also known as Shippeitaro.
