Otoroshi (おとろし, "scary") is a Yōkai in Japanese mythology.


The Otoroshi is a rare and mysterious creature that resembles a hunched creature that is covered in a messy mane, has blue or red skin, and has large tusks. It is a master of disguise and only appears when its wants to appear. The Otoroshi is often sighted perching on top of roofs, and temple gates. It will often pounce on anyone who has a wicked soul where it will tear them to shreds and eat their remains outside of their usual food of small birds. Despite their frightful appearances, the Otoroshi is loyal to the guardian deities.
