Ben-Ben (Japanese: ベンベン) was a stinky outcast akki hermit on Kamigawa.


Ben-Ben belonged to the Ishi tribe and had limited shamanic abilities (stone manipulation) that he sometimes used to protect the other akki (in order to get some food in exchange). He wore a dead octopus for a hat.[1] Some akki thought of Ben-Ben as a kami of trickery in disguise. They hunted for him in the maze of warrens, often falling prey to his traps.

He was present in Hidetsugu's hut during the ritual of Kobo's acceptance into the Hyozan Reckoners. His tribe sent him to ask Hidetsugu for advice. Later he participated together with the brothers Yamazaki in a ritual of summoning the Myojin of Infinite Rage, who gave both the akki and the sanzoku his blessings.
