Films: Yokai Monsters: Spook Warfare (1968)
Location: Civilized Area
Height/Weight: Can grow up to the size of a skyscraper.
Summary: So you've met the creepy, but all around lovable Yokai? Well, why don't you meet their opposite. The being that defies everything they stand for. Where the Yokai live for justice and mischief, the Daimon lives for bloodshed and murder.
History: Daimon's been living below the ruined city of Ur for 40 centuries now. But thanks to a group of raiders, he's back in business. Every person he encounters, samurai or emperor or civilian, it doesn't matter, is drained of blood, their form exploited by him. The neighboring Yokai are at first hesitant to fight against such a powerful foe, but when things go too far, they realize that this evil beast has GOT to go!
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: In the end, hundreds of Yokai stand in Daimon's way, and Nuppeppo, the more peaceful of the Yokai, is the one to stab the being's last working eye, draining him of his power and sending him back to imprisonment. The day is saved!
Powers/Abilities: Daimon can use his staff to wield destructive magic, such as shapeshifting into his victims or creating up to twelve clones of himself.
Weakness: If both of his eyes are shot out, Daimon's time in the mortal realm is through.
Scariness Factor: 4-Daimon's design, much like the Yokai, takes a lot of cues from Japanese mythology, particularly the parts with the evilness in them. It doesn't help that this malicious sourpuss spills blood like it's nobody's business. Make no mistake, for guys as comical and noble as the Yokai, this was a villain they wouldn't forget.
Trivia: -Daimon is based on the Oni, which are basically Japanese Demons out to hurt and perhaps even kill humans.
-We don't want to give much away, but Daimon is just a fancy way of saying Demon. There. We said it.
