Tokubei Echigoya (越後屋 徳兵衛 Echigoya Tokubei) was a corrupt businessman and an associate of Nasu. He was a son of Echigoya.


Like rest of the Echigoya family, Tokubei was a successful, corrupt businessman. He was the ringleader of a human trafficking operation, overseen by his bodyguard Tajima and had no regards from snatching girls from their families.

His actions brought in the attention of the Azuma Ninja and the Muzen. He was ultimately killed by the assassin Tesshu.

He also had an interest in rare items, as he possessed a rare jewel that, unbeknown to him, had strong ties to the Lords of Darkness. This leads to his death at the hands of an unseen Onikage in Rikimaru and Ayame's stories.

Personality Edit

Like other members of his family, he was a criminal, cowardly rat of a man who disliked getting his own hands dirty, instead leaving it to his subordinates. He also begged for mercy the instant he was cornered, which did him little good when it was time for him to pay for his crimes.
