Enemy Description

  • The harinobo is a yokai formed by worn-out needles and broken blades. People in japan believed that objects used for long periods of time housed a soul within them, and called them as "tsukumogami". While these tsukumogami are not ncessarily intent on harming humans, it is said that some tools harbored a grudge for being prematurely discarded or being used in an improper manner, which caused them to transform into yokai. Among them, it is thought that objects such as needles and blades are especially susceptible to becoming yokai, so needles and blades that can no longer be used are often blessed at shrines. This ceremony is known as either hari-kuyo for needles, or hamono-kuyo for blades.
  • The bodies of harinobo contain numerous needles and blade fragments that have grown in size due to mystical powers and are forcefully expelled at their foes. It is said that this is an attempt by the harinobo to prove that the needles and blades are still capable of being used, despite having been discarded. Those who approach a harinobo unaware are likely to be sliced to ribbons before they even know what hit them.
