The scene shows defeat of the Shuten-dōji, a Japanese demon of folklore. After mysterious disappearances near Mt. Ōe, the Emperor called upon the famous samurai Yorimitsu to attack the mountain where the demon resided. Yorimitsu and his retinue disguised themselves as priests and deceived the demon lord by offering him divine saké. With the demon lord subdued, the warriors beheaded the immobile Shuten-dōji. However, the powerful demon did not die immediately and with fangs open wide, hurled his head toward Yorimitsu. Yorimitsu survives the attack by wearing two more helmets. This print depicts the moment of the men's triumph.
