Shutendoji

Japanese - The Goblin-king of Mount Oye. He carried off young maidens, made them his slaves and even ate them. When he captured Kimitaka, daughter of the emperor Ichijo, the emperor sent Raiko and five of his companions to kill the goblin who drank the magic drink, Shimben-Kidoku-Shu, offered by Raiko, and fell asleep so that he was easily overcome and killed. In some accounts, Yorimitsu appears in place of Raiko. Sometimes referred to as Shutendoji, Goblin-king, Goblin-king, Shuten Doji or Shuten Doji.
