Yamanba was a Horror that possessed the body of Sanuki no Miyatsukomaro's wife.
As their adoptive daughter Kaguya grew up to be a beautiful lady, many aristocrats wanted her hand for marriage, so they each brought rare and expensive treasures in an attempt surpass each other's gifts. But the greed from obtaining these treasures corrupted both her husband and her, turning the two of them into Horrors.
After her husband attacked one of Kaguya's suitors as Kamaitachi, he and Yamanba appeared as Kaguya's human parents to feign innocence and thanked Raikou for rescuing their daughter. When the fifth suitor snapped and attempted to commit murder-suicide with Kaguya, Kintoki stopped him and used his rods to reveal the Horror, but to his surprise it was both Miyatsukomaro and his wife. In the end, she and her husband were slain by Raikou after donning the Garo armor, but their severed bodies combined together and formed the Horror Yamaoroshi.
