- The Underworld Soldiers are demons who form the army of Yomi, the Japanese underworld. According to legend, Izanami sent an army of 1500 Underworld Soldiers to chase Izanagi as he fled Yomi. Izanagi managed to save himself by hurling a peach from the peach tree that grew that on the border of life and death toward the enemy. Faced with the peach, which said to possess the power to drive away evil, the army was forced to retreat. Similarly, you will find that purity-based attacks are particularly effective when fighting Underworld Soldiers.
- Underworld Soldiers are mainly tasked with apprehending those who attempt to escape Yomi, which is why they can be seen carrying tools for this purpose in addition to their weapons. They are highly skilled at chasing their targets, thanks to their ability to ride clouds formed from the Yokai Realm. It would be wrong to simply label these yokai evil, as the duty they perform is an important one to maintain the distinction between this world and the afterlife. Be that as it may, their lack of intelligence means they are prone to trying to bring any human they see back to the underworld, which makes them dangerous indeed.
