Hiderigami (ひでり神, God of Drought) is a mythical species of yōkai in Japanese folklore that holds the power to cause droughts.
According to a quote from Bencao Gangmu in the Edo period encyclopedia Wakan Sansai Zue, the Hiderigami is from sixty to ninety centimeters long, has eyes on the top of its head, and moves quickly like the wind. In Toriyama Sekien's Illustrated One Hundred Demons from the Present and the Past, it is referred to as Hiderigami (魃"drought"?) or Kanbo (旱母"drought mother"?) and is drawn as a beast with one arm and one eye.
Hiderigami appears in episode 29 of the 3rd anime adaption, Yōkai Hiderigami.
Hiderigami appears in episode 73 of the 5th anime adaption, Mystery of the Forty Seven Yōkai Warriors.
