Pancika (Chinese:般闍迦) was the consort of the Buddhist goddess of children, Hariti. He is himself a Buddhist god, and is said to have fathered 500 children.
"The Yakṣas are commanded by 28 generals, of whom the chief is Pancika — according to the Mahavamsa, he was the father of the 500 sons of Hariti [Kishimojin]. Worshipped very early in India (some of his representations are found in Gandhara and in northern India) as well as in Java, this general of the Yakṣas was soon merged with Vaiśravaṇa."
