Ohachiyo (乙破千代) is a fictional character in the Shaman King manga and anime series. He is a small rabbit-like demon that once took care of the orphaned Asaha Doji who would later be known as Asakura Hao.

About[]

200 years prior to meeting Asaha Doji, Ohachiyo was a criminal who was eventually executed. As his corpse was left on the ground, a puppy fed on the body, and the criminal possessed on the puppy. As the time passed on, his spiritual appearance gradually turned into his later form by possessing a dog for years.

Ohachiyo met Asaha Doji soon after the boy lost his mother and became convinced he was a demon meant to exterminate humans. The two later became friends and the demon gave him the nickname, "Mappa Doji" (麻葉マッパ童子 Mappa Dōji). Ohachiyo convinced him to give up his desire for vengeance and taught him to look on the positive side of life. Asaha Doji did as the demon said and the two lived very happily together, until one day a guard of the gate where the two met overheard the boy apparently talking to only himself. The guard was convinced the boy was a demon and later contacted an exorcist called Monk Densen Hoshi. When the monk finally showed up, Asaha recognized him as the same man who killed his mother and formed Ohachiyo into his first Over Soul, then used it to kill for the first time. However since Asaha had depleted his Furyoku, Ohachiyo's powers were unintentionally absorbed by the boy and he gained permanent Reishi, which would lead to his descent into darkness.[1]

Ohachiyo later appeared within the Great Spirit and revealed to Hao that he had always been in the same society as his mother, right next to him.[2]
