At the Heian period, the boss stationed at a castle in Mt. Ooe who governed over the oni. There are various theories about Shuten Douji's origins. Like the theory that deems her as the offspring of a human and the Great God Ibuki of Mt. Ibuki (Yamata no Orochi), or the theory that deems her as a heaven-sent child from Mt. Togakushi (Kuzuryuu). At any rate, she is the child of a dragon god, possessing a common background with Sakata Kintoki.

Due her anecdotes and vestiges, she is classified as a ｢Anti-Hero｣.
Due a series of disappearances of young men and princesses taking place in the imperial capital, Abe no Seimei performed a divination and ascertained that it was the doing of Shuten Douji. Having received the order to subjugate her, the Yorimitsu Big Four - lead by Minamoto no Yorimitsu - dressed themselves as itinerant Buddhist monks and visited the oni's castle. During a drinking bout, Yorimitsu and the others had Shuten Douji and his lot drink poisoned alcohol and then attacked while they were sick in bed, delivering punishment. The story goes that Shuten Douji's severed head assaulted Yorimitsu, but was thwarted by a helmet provided by god.
She herself does not talk much about her origins. The alias Ibuki Douji is nothing more than something given by Ibaraki Douji, who saw through the power of Yamata no Orochi. Maybe she has already forgotten such past. So long there are bewitching alcohol, showy banquets and entertaining ｢snacks｣, she holds no regrets.
Her connection with Sakata Kintoki dates back from his time as a young man. Since he was easy to tease, she often played with him as a ｢snack｣ while drinking alcohol. As far as Shuten was concerned, those were nothing but drinking bouts, but for Kintoki they were like a devil's banquet that would kill him if he loosen his attention. ｢Struggling for life while intoxicated with alcohol. Isn't it quaint to cheat each other while cuddling our bodies?｣ Such is Shuten's testimony.
Shuten Douji does not talk about a wish for the Holy Grail. Just like in the past, she lives nowadays as she feels like, behaving to her heart's content. In addition, she is also a collector of antiques and rarities, showing a keen interest in the red dragon's ulna dwelling on Kintoki's arm. Seems that she attaches importance on rarity and the elegance of the appearance, as such she is incompatible with the King of Heroes who stresses performance and history.
