- Pronounced "Noo-ray own-na." This man-eating yokai takes the shape of a snake with a woman's head. Its name literally means "wet woman", and it is seen near water or on rainy days, searching for unlucky humans to make its prey. It is said Nure-onna were once women who tragically drowned, leading them to attack the living out of vengeful malice.
- An obvious source of Nure-onna's name is the fact that its hair is always wet. It can freely manipulate said hair, slicing enemies apart with its razor-sharp strands. Its hair has another surprising use-increasing Nure-onna's fire resistance due to the sodden defensive layer it provides. Perhaps most frightening of all are its snakelike eyes, capable of paralyzing any unwittingly prey with a single glare.
