Kagutsuchi appeared as an enemy to Lucifer while he was on his journey to the Japanese underworld in search of his severed wings in the next stage of his quest for divine power.
Lucifer set out to reclaim his lost wings, which were in the possession of Izanami, the ruling deity of the House of Windowless Rooms. Izanami's children Susano-o-Mikoto, Kagutsuchi, Yama-no-Kami, and Tsuki-yomi let Lucifer stay in the House and acted cordial toward him, but in truth they plotted his murder, a feat only possible because Lucifer was mortal in Izanami's realm. Susano-o-Mikoto summoned the demon Musubi and sent her to kill Lucifer, but Lucifer convinced her to join his cause. As a psychopomp, Lucifer could choose her soul's destination if he killed her, so Musubi allowed it to free herself from Izanami's service. Later at a banquet Kagutsuchiu provoked Lucifer. While attempting to kill Lucifer with his mystic blade, Kagutsuchi was tricked into striking and killing Tsuki-yomi and was killed by the poison from the demon Musubi's sacs that Lucifer had placed into his wine during the banquet.
Three-Named Sword: Once drawn, this blade cannot be stayed nor deflected. Has the capability to render a lethal blow to a Japanese God in a single strike.
