Japanese Noboru Yamaguchi

Nagao (長尾, Long Tail) was a follower of Kouya, along with Honetaro and Uhosuke. Tokine Yukimura easily captures him, but Yoshimori Sumimura convinces her not to destroy him. The only word he ever says is "ahondara" (Japanese for "idiot," only stronger), which is replaced with "fool" in the English dub.[1]


He is dark gray pheasant, and is usually airborne.[1]


Nagao's mood at any given moment is usually an exaggeration of whatever is happening to his comrades. This is typically made even stranger by his uttering his catchphrase in a way that best suits the current mood.[1]


The Last Day of Kouya's Gang

Kouya's Gang attempts to conquer Karasumori, with the Honetaro Trio acting as decoys until Kouya finally emerges. Upon recognizing Madarao as his childhood friend Ginro,[2] Kouya abandons his gang and gives Madarao a chance to partner up again, but Madarao refuses. Kouya decides to take his hatred of humans out on Yoshimori, but wounds Uhosuke in the process, much to the shock of Honetaro. After taking off Madarao's collar so he can fight Kouya at full strength,[3] Yoshimori moves Uhosuke away from the battle so he can heal. Though Honetaro and Nagao are outraged at being pitied by an enemy, their concern for their friend convinces them to help Yoshimori.[4] Once Uhosuke recovers, the trio returns to the site of the battle to defend Kouya. However, Kouya orders them to leave him, which they do reluctantly, since his orders are absolute to them. Honetaro thanks Kouya for being a good boss.[5]


  • He is a parody of the pheasant companion of Momotarō.
