- The yokai known as Nurikabe (noo-REE-KAH-bay) take the form of a giant living wall. They are said to the most enjoy simply standing where no wall should be and enjoying the unease and confusion of travelers. If left alone, they will not move, but if harassed they extend long arms to strike back in rage. Slow-moving but with immense strength and stamina, Nurikabe are formidable foes
- Nurikabe often block the way to valuable items or alternative routes to destinations, although whether they do so knowingly or not is unclear. Once a Nurikabe is angered, there is no alternative but to defeat it , but it is said that the right gestures can charm them into a more amiable attitude.

- Combat can be avoided entirely by using the right type of gesture (positive, neutral, negative). It doesn't matter what specific gesture you use as long as it's the right type. You will have two chances to guess the Nurikabe's disposition. The correct gesture will cause the Nurikabe to immediately disappear, dropping its loot without a fight. Two wrong gestures will cause it to attack. Nearby bloody graves created by Nurikabe will indicate what type of gesture caused them to attack the owner.
- Area Attacks - They mainly employ slow and lumbering sweeping moves as area attacks but one you should pay attention to is when it throws its hands at you which, after some time will fly back to its owner while damaging anyone on its path.
- Nurikabe will react immediately when buffed by a Barrier Talisman or when enemy-activated jutsus (Groundfires, Shikigamis, etc.) are placed within their vicinity.
