Taiitsukun, (known as Tai -Yi-Jun in the manga) is a sage who appears to be old and wrinkled . After all, she does not accept any comments about her appearance and makes anyone pay for commenting on it. Every single thing about her is a running joke every time she appears. Actually, the infamous "great sage" turned out to be a joke because of her comedius looks, but she is really powerful. She gave rise to the nickname "Sunukake-Baba", which means "sand-witch".
