Barg (バルグ Barugu) is a Makai Beast that is employed by the Shadowfolk Makai Knights in their own variation of the Forced Repatriation: Moonlight Ceremony. The process of this ritual is that Barg is stabbed with several swords, trapping the Horror essence its own body. While Barg is placed in a state of rest within a deep well in a small shrine guarded by the Shadowfolk knights, it can awaken from the slightest of physical disturbance, evident from being awaken when a young knight peered into the well out of curiosity and a drop of his sweat landed onto Barg. It has a violent temperament and is powerful enough to kill Makai Knights, as well as sprout wings for flight. While it resents being sealed in the shrine and used as a tool, it cannot survive for long outside the shrine and will die in less than a day going outside.

When Barg escaped, Gento, Crow, and Raiga can just leave it be as it would die soon, but deem it necessary to slay Barg due to having killed four Makai Knights. Slaying Barg proves to be troublesome, as it cannot be simply cut down as the Horrors sealed within will be released when slain. Gento and Crow, the two remaining Shadowfolk Makai Knights present when it escaped, have to trap it under a temporary moonlight barrier before Raiga can move in to cut it down, so as to contain the Horrors sealed within it.

Mayuri easily empathizes with Barg due to her being a Madōgu as well and attempts to seal it within her, at the risk of her own life. Mayuri is visibly saddened when Raiga cut Barg down, and proceeds to put up a grave marker with one of the swords stabbed on its back to mourn it.
