Tōbei Kagetsu (花月藤平, Kagetsu Tōbei) is an medicinal herb seller from Motoyoshi Village who faked his own death.
He and his family were poor and he often joked to bring some happiness to their lives. One day he found some medical herbs on their mountain which he used to make a fortune in wealth. The clan prospered but he became dissatisfied with the way the clan became focused on wealth. Because of this, Tōbei, with the help of his youngest daughter Mai Kagetsu, faked his own death to unite the family once more.
Tōbei is a very happy man who would always joke around with his kids because he wanted them to be happy too.
He is an elderly man, with black and grey hair around his head and tannish-coloured along with a bald top. He has a small dot on his forehead, like the rest of the family members. He wears a three layered kimono, a light purple, then a cream-white, and lastly a dark purple.

He then snag a silly song, reminding them all of the fun the once had, making them all want to regain that part of their life.
