It was stationed at an abandoned Shinto shrine in Saruhashi. By ripping off one of its many tails, Bakeneko can produce a one-tailed copy of itself. Hibiki had a hard time fighting the copies, even in Kurenai form, before they retreated once one of the copies was killed. The Oni eventually find out the location of the Bakeneko. Hibiki and Todoroki battle the massive number of copies, with Kurenai Form defeating most of the Bakeneko copies and Todoroki killing the rest with his Ongeki Da Rakurai. Once its copies are killed, the real Bakeneko attacks, overpowering Hibiki until the Disc Animals came to his aid and allowing Kurenai Hibiki to kill Bakeneko with his Ongeki Da: Shakunetsu Shinku no Kata.
