Benikage (ベニカゲ, literally translated as Crimson Shadow) is a guest character appearing in the anime episode "Ninja Binge". A ninja school flunkie, he showed up in town trying to retrieve his failing report card- which everyone thought was an ancient ninja scroll!

Though he's determined, Benikage's ninjutsu skills are about on par with Kawasaki's cooking. He's a very hard worker and he tries his best, but it may as well just be a lost cause.

However, his stubbornness and curiosity almost got him killed when he challenged the traitor Yamikage, but thankfully, Ninja Kirby was there to help out. After the fight, Benikage promised to Kirby and the gang that he would get all straight circles next time he attended ninja school, and attempted to impress them with his ninja teleportation technique - only to accidentally end up falling in the river and being swept away in it. Tiff asked him if he could swim, and Benikage promised that that would be his next class.

Benikage is voiced by Kumiko Watanabe in Japanese.
