Bake-Kujira (化け鯨, lit. Monster Whale) or Hone-Kujira (骨鯨, lit. Bone Whale) is a whale skeleton yōkai.
Once long ago, an enormous skeletal whale appeared off the coast of Shimane Prefecture, accompanied by a host of strange fish and ominous birds. A fisherman tried throwing his harpoon at it, but it had no effect, and the ghost whale continued out to sea with its eerie multitude.
Bake-Kujira appears in episode #18 of the fourth anime adaptation, Deep Sea Mystery! Bake-Kujira.
- He is also called "Ghost Whale" in the fourth anime.
