Kemuzou Kemumaki (Amara: Hindi dub) is the antagonist of Ninja Hattori-kun, and is a Koga Ninja (Kōga-ryū). He lives in a block of flats with his cat Kagechiyo, and happens to be the opposite of Kenichi Mitsuba. He loves Yumeko, but the reason why he dislikes Kenichi is because he loves her too. However, he is scared of some of Hattori's ninja techniques, and can easily be intimidated by him. Kemumaki comes from the koga clan, and the ega and koga clan are sworn rivals. Hence Kemumaki hates Hattori and challenges him often. He does have a soft side though...
Physical appearance Edit
Kemumaki is shorter than Kenichi, Yumeko and the Mitsuba family. He has black, tufty hair. He wears green ninja robes with a white belt and a green loincloth under his trousers, while his casual outfit consists of a blue jacket with gold buttons and a slightly lighter blue pair of trousers. He is slightly plump and has freckles.
Kemumaki is a selfish koga - ninja who cons a lot of people, but his biggest ambition is to tie the knot with Yumeko and make Kenichi and Hattori lose.
Kemumaki is mostly respected by his cat Kagechiyo. Kemumaki, in turn, is kind to him, but there are a few episodes where Kagechiyo complains about his master's strictness.
Hattori and Kemumaki have the same opinions on each other - they think their enemy is a slimy old git. However, they are seen helping each other sometimes.
Shinzou and Shishimaru Edit
Shinzou and Shishimaru hate Kemumaki just as Hattori does. They, along with Kenichi, are combatants in the duels commanded by the two ninjas. However, Kemumaki did teach Shinzou how to walk on water.
Kenichi is yet another enemy of old Kemumaki. The Koga does things greater than the Ega ally, and is mostly flanked by a flock of flamboyant girls, including Yumeko Kawai.
Yumeko is smitten with Kemumaki, and he promises to do wondrous things for her. However, Yumeko sometimes finds out that Kemumaki does wrong just to get Kenichi into trouble, and admonishes him for that.
Mr. and Mrs. Mitsuba Edit
Mr. and Mrs. Mitsuba, unlike their son, do not see Kemumaki for his true character. Once, Mrs Mitsuba hired Kemumaki to keep an eye on things while Hattori was away, and things ended in disaster.
- Duelling: Kemumaki is a skilled duellist and constantly duels with Hattori, with his cat Kagechiyo as his combatant.
- Disguise: Kemumaki is known for disguising as people to cause trouble, paticularly Hattori, Kenichi or Yumeko. He even posed as Kenichi's older brother once.
- Ninja Techniques: Kemumaki is skilled at performing ninja techniques, but performs them to cause trouble, given that he is a ruthless Koga Ninja.
- "It's very nice to meet you all." (first line)
- "Barkin' dogs don't bite! I'm gonna teach you a lesson!"
Kemumaki was voiced by the late K. Kimotsuki in the original anime. He was played by Gorie in the film.
