The Kihetai (鬼兵隊) is an extremist group whose main goal was to destroy the world that had become "rotten". Their current goal is to put an end to current Tendoshuu's control of the Bakufu governement.
Kiheitai (鬼兵隊); literally means 'Army of Demon Soldiers'. Once known as the Giyuugun, or Volunteer Army (義勇軍) from the Joui Wars. They are a radical group of extremists that have no qualms of using the most severe methods to complete their objectives - from the the mass-production of bio-mechanical swords, to triggering a savage internal strife within the Shinsengumi in order to wipe them out, and collaborating with the Harusame space pirates - this violent group stops at nothing to destabilize the world. The leader, Takasugi Shinsuke, even offered his Joui War comrades' heads to secure assistance from the Harusame, namely Katsura Kotarou and Sakata Gintoki, as he explained in Episode 61.
