Kaguya is a fictional character from the popular anime and manga series InuYasha.


Kaguya only appears in InuYasha the Movie 2: The Castle Beyond the Looking Glass as the main antagonist. She was trapped inside the Mirror of Life by Miroku's grandfather, Miyatsu. Fifty years passed, and Kanna and Kagura set her free by gathering the required items, Kohaku's swallow's cowrie shell, Kikyo's stone bowl of Buddah, the crystal from the dragon's neck, the jeweled sprig and InuYasha's cloth of the fire rat. To do this, she deceived Kagura by telling her that she would grant her desired freedom to her.

After being released, she captures Kagome and takes her to her Dream Castle with an intention to devour her and obtain her spiritual powers. This failed because InuYasha arrived and fought her. She managed to make him a full demon, but the process was interrupted when Kagome kissed him. Later, Naraku emerges from Kohaku's body and claims that he has known her. She was disgusted by his return and thought that he died. He corrects her by saying that he was dead and tries to absorb her into his body.

Kaguya met her demise after having her soul sucked into Miroku's Wind Tunnel.
