Tōfu-Kozō is a small yokai who resembles a human child with short black hair and eyes, as well as constantly sticking his out. He wears a little boys’ kimonos and wide-brimmed straw hats, which is the typical outfit of a tōfu-selling young boy of the Edo period. He is virtually always seen carrying a tray of tofu.
Tōfu-kozō is often portrayed as amicable and timid. For the most part, he will shy away from any confrontation, sticking to the sidelines.
In the 5th Anime, Tōfu-Kozō makes occasional appearances. He is shown in the second ending animation in the series.
In the 6th Anime, Tōfu-Kozō appears in the opening animation sitting on the roof of a building.
After Mana states that she wants to understand more about yōkai, she looks up at the Vampire Tree that Kitarō had turned into, and briefly sees Tōfu-Kozō sitting on a branch. After Mana rubs her eyes, she looks up again to see that he has disappeared and Medama-Oyaji chuckles.
Vanishing: Tofu-Kozō was able to appear on a branch of the Vampire Tree, and quickly disappear as Mana had saw.
