Naruko has several incarnations, some of which are more powerful than others.

The spider yokai Naraku is an infamous anime villain from Inuyasha. Unlike some other villains that just never seem to die due to plot armor, there is a believable reason behind why Naraku returns again and again to challenge the heroes.

Inuyasha's sworn enemy sought to take destiny in his own hands by using sacred jewel shards to form incarnations of himself stemming from his own body – not unlike how an arachnid may regrow its own lost limbs. Naraku's incarnations prove to be varying levels of evil, some more complex than others. Not all the incarnations are undyingly loyal to Naraku, many have their own complex feelings and motivations.

Like his brother the Infant, the eighth incarnation Hakudoshi also seeks to overtake Naraku. He's a very threatening villain to Inuyasha. Despite his small, childlike stature, Hakudoshi doesn't hesitate to prove himself in battle against other demons.

Naraku depends on Hakudoshi above the other incarnations for some time – until he plots with his brother to kill Naraku. Hakudoshi can regenerate his body, wields a bladed pole weapon, and is protected by a force field that Naraku extends to him. Hakudoshi is undone when he attempts to hurt Naraku, who then rescinds the protective force field around Hakudoshi, leaving him vulnerable to Miroku's Wind Tunnel.
