Demon Okure seems to enjoy his job as a reaper and never hunts humans who still have a full life ahead of them. He acts ruthlessly to those who cannot find a purpose and thus have no reason to live. If a target finds a purpose he will simply shrug it off and leave.
Demon Okure uses his scythe to kill humans who have nothing left to do or cannot find a reason to live. This typically manifests in him opening manhole covers, but cutting wires and ropes is still a possibility. If continued to be disrupted, he can use energy slices from his scythe or explosive blasts from the bottom of his scythe's shaft.
Once his targets discover or rediscover a reason to live, he will quit without further incident.
Demon Okure first physically appeared in Episode 1 of M02 on orders of a disguised Lord Enma, who "kills" Nate and sends his soul to the afterlife by opening a manhole cover.
He later reappeared in front of Nate's Yo-kai form, Fuu2, and attempts to end Yuuto's life due to him giving up on living. He first tried to crush Yuuto by cutting the ropes of a concrete pipe-delivering truck only to be stopped by Fuu2. Annoyed, he swipes at the Yo-kai, only to go red-faced in anger due to him missing every swing, and then leaves to start opening manhole covers, and is repeatedly stopped by Fuu2. His patience at an end, he fires a blast at a nearby convenience store sign to topple the topmost part of it, only for that to fail when Fuu2 saved Yuuto from being crushed. He then follows them into the Construction Site, and flings energy slices in their general direction. When they were on the roof, Demon Okure was waiting and nearly dropped a payload of I-beams onto them. When he tries to goad Yuuto into falling off of the roof, Fuu2 then showed Yuuto what his parents are normally like, allowing Yuuto to regain a sense of direction to life, forcing Demon Okure to abandon his quarry.
"Demon Okure" is based on Demon Kakka, a Japanese musician, entertainer, journalist and sumo commentator. He is the frontman of the heavy metal band Seikima-II, and is known for always working entirely in character.
"Demon Okure" is similar to Demon Kakka's original stage name of "Demon Kogure". "Okure" (Japanese: 送れ,okure) also means "send", referencing Death sending people to the afterlife.
