Toutousai is the sword smith who forged the two swords, Tessaiga and Tenseiga, for Inuyasha and Sesshoumaru's father. He appears in Episode 34 seeking Inuyasha's help after he is confronted by Sesshoumaru and asked to forge him a new sword. He is known for his fiery breath, which he uses along with the hammer and strap of leather he carries with him for his craft, as well as the strange flying cow he rides. He is seen from time to time throughout the remainder of the series. Due to the fact that he is the creator of both of the great swords, his knowledge of them drives Inuyasha to seek him out on occasion to guide him to unlocking Tessaiga's true power and maximizing it.
