Shimainu (シマイヌ Shimainu) is a Spectrobe that appears in Spectrobes: Beyond the Portals and Spectrobes: Origins. It has the Corona property in Spectrobes: Beyond the Portals and the Earth property in Spectrobes: Origins. Its name is similar to Komainu's. Shimainu evolves into Shimanoto and later Shimadoros, and can be awakened from a Shimapod.
Shimainu appears to be a small dog with a pushed-in face and two long tails. It has a wooden barrel-like shell that covers all but its face and behind. The red tomoe pattern appears once over its head, and one on each of its sides.
- Spectrobes: Beyond the Portals/Spectrobes: Origins - "This two-tailed fellow always wants to beat Komainu, but Komainu couldn't care less."
- Normal: Red

- Spectrobes: Beyond the Portals - 5 minerals

- While Origins establishes the origin of the name via this Spectrobe's high-pitched barks, Shimainu may have also been a pun on 柴犬 (Shiba Inu), a breed of dog with a similarly high-pitched voice.
- The only Japanese interjection Shimainu can say in Origins apart from barking and other sounds is "いいよ!", which translates to "yes" in agreement to an order.
