Hellhound is a Lesser Phantom and an antagonist in Kamen Rider Wizard. His human guise is TV Yūhi morning news announcer Kazuo Tajima.
He is voiced and portrayed in his human form by Takeshi Kongochi.
Hellhound was sent by Phoenix and Medusa to create a new Phantom from Shunpei Nara. He sought to turn Shunpei Nara into a Phantom by destroying the young man's dreams of ever being a mage. Hellhound uses his shadow ability to trick Shunpei into thinking he gained magic powers before humiliating him on national television and forcing him to destroy his childhood book to begin the creation of a new Phantom.
Kamen Rider Wizard arrives to battle Hellhound on live television, but the Phantom outsmarts him by sneaking in and out of shadows before destroying the TV camera. After using the Light Magic Ring to flush out Hellhound, he changes to Water Style to counter the Phantom's flame attacks before finishing him off with the Water Slash Strike.
