Ken no Oni (剣の鬼) is a 47-page long one-shot Japanese comic book written and drawn by Go Nagai and Dynamic Production.

The cartoon was originally published in Kondasha's publication Weekly Young Magazine #41 of 2020, released for sale on 2020-09-06 (cover date #2020-09-21) only in its printed version (the digital version doesn't have it). It hasn't been collected anywhere else, although it was briefly available for reading at Yanmaga Web, the official website of the magazine where it was first published, from 2020-12-04 to 2020-12-17. It was published as a special oneshot for the 40th anniversary of Young Magazine for which Nagai has published works since its inception.

The story depicts a fictional account of what happened in the historical duel between Miyamoto Musashi and Sasaki Kojiro. A sequel titled Ken no Oni: Iwaryu Tsubame Gaeshi was eventually released some months later in a sister magazine.
