Ukemochi Images

Ukemochi (保食), or simply Uke (ウケ), is a Byakko and Izumo Kamiki's familiar. He previously served her mother, Tamamo Kamiki.


Uke appears as a white fox with a blue stripe going from the top of his head down to the tip of his nose. He has small tomoe-shaped markings on his eyebrows and three on either side of his muzzle. He wears a red apron with his name on it and a sedge hat secured with a white scarf.


Of the two, Uke appears more relaxed and playful than Mike, being less proud and aggressive than his sibling.


In the past, Uke and Mike were familiars to Izumo's mother, Tamamo. They would take human form in order to do all of the housework.[2] When Tamamo became possessed by the Nine-Tailed Fox Spirit, Uke jumped in to rescue Tsukumo, pulling her out of the way.[3] What became of him after this is unclear until he reappears with Izumo at the beginning of the series.[4]


True Cross Academy arc[]

Uke first appears when summoned alongside Mike during the Magic Circles and Sealing class with Professor Neuhaus. At the appearance of her familiars, Neuhaus is quite impressed.[4]

When Paku is attacked by a Naberius, Izumo calls on Uke and Mike to defend her, but because of her wavering heart, they turn on her. She dispells them before they cause any harm.[5]

During the Exwire exam, Izumo finally manages to summon Uke and Mike successfully once more, using them to delay the Naberius long enough for Ryuji Suguro to chant its fatal verse.[6]

Powers & Abilities[]

Transformation: The primary power of Byakko appears to lie in their ability to transform. Using various shapes and forms, they can attack their target in a number of ways.[7][8]

Spirit & Light Attributes: While not expanded on, the Byakko's attributes as demons make them effective for combating Necrophageous Demons.[9]

  • Purification of Spirits ( (たまゆら) 祓い (はらい)  Tamayura no Harai): Izumo sends Mike and Uke to bite her enemy in a circle like a hurricane.[6]
  • Great Sacred Wine of Heavens ( (あま) 大御酒 (おおみき)  Ama no Ōmiki): Uke transforms into a bowl and pours holy wine that, like Holy Water, can put out Rin's Flames of Satan.[10]
  • Purification for Repose (鎮魂 (みたましずめ) 祓い (はらい)  Mitama Shizume no Harai): While chanting Izumo summons a fan, a kagura suzu (divine bells), and a flowered headdress and fox ears. Mike and Uke take their human forms and receive a sword and a bow, respectively. Mike dashes forward and stabs the opponent's head and Uke fires an arrow of light, which strikes the opponent like lightning.[11]
