Oritatami Nyudo (Folding Monster)
Kawauso (River Otter)
Oritatami Nyudo: Oritatami is composed of the words for "folding" (ori) and "bamboo mat" (tatami). Generally, though, "oritatami" seems to be applied to folding desks and folding chairs. "Nyudo" shows up a number of times in Kitaro to refer to a kind of bald monster. Also, it's worth noting that other fan groups have already translated "Oritatami Nyudo" as "Folding Monster", so that's what I'll use here.
Mujina: This is the Japanese name for "badger" or "Tanuki". I'm treating it as "Badger Monster".
Akamata: An akamata is an Okinawan odd-tooth snake. In the anime, he's more of a man with slit pupils, a double-moustache, and strange whorls on the palms of his hands.
Yashiotoshi: A "yashi" is a palm tree, and "otoshi" generally means "to drop something". The Yashiotoshi is a monster with a palm tree growing from the top of its head. In Kitaro, he works together with Akamata.
Kawauso: This is the Japanese name for an otter, and more specifically, the Japanese river otter. What I find amusing is that "uso" means "lie", so a kawauso would be a "river liar". I'm treating this as "Otter Monster".
