The Kumaso Tribe (熊襲) was a tribe of men that Yamato Takeru was sent to subjugate. The Clan was led by two powerful brothers.

They ask Yamato (disguised as a woman) to join their feast and sit between them. During the feast Yamato stabs the elder brother, chasing the younger down and stabbing him in the buttocks. As he dies he gives him the name of Yamato-Takeru.1
