Enemy Description

  • Kappa are diminutive Yokai with green skin, a dish-like depression on their heads, and a turtle-like shell on their back. They generally lurk underwater, but they often emerge onto dry land as well. In the water Kappa are faster than fish, and they are known to commit evils like seizing children playing in rivers by the leg and dragging them under, or stealing the "shiri-kodama" soul from people's behinds and leaving them listless shells of their former self.
  • Cowardly by nature, Kappa flee underwater at the first sign of danger. They are rumored to have a taste for cucumber, and to wither and die if the water in the "dish" on their head dries up. Other legends say that a treasure lies concealed inside their shells and can be claimed if the Kappa is slain before it can escape.
