Yaonami-Hime Description

Yaonami-Hime possesses the upper body of a woman and lower body of a fish. Once the daughter of a noble family in the Heian period, she consumed the flesh of a mermaid and was granted eternal life. However, her immortality came at a price as she was forced to watch the people she loved depart this world one by one. Unable to bear the sadness and loneliness that accompanied her gift, she finally drowned herself. It is said that deep beneath the water's surface, she was transformed into a mermaid. Mermaids have existed in Japanese folklore for many centuries. Besides being written about in the Nihon Shoki in the year 720, there is also the famous account of Prince Shotoku, who built a temple to honor the request of a soul who had been turned into a mermaid due to their deeds in a previous life. Mermaids are seen as both auspicious and inauspicious, with some considering them ominous portents of natural disasters and others believing in their ability to extend one's life or protect one from fire.


How to unlock Yaonami-Hime


How to use Yaonami-Hime

  • Yokai Shift: Feral
  • The Guardian Spirit Skill is two waves of water, dealing a moderate amount of Water and Ki Damage. Human enemies will tumble if hit by the second wave. It has a significant startup time, making it hard to hit enemies that move a lot.
  • This is one of the strongest Guardian Spirits for Anima generation. Feral guardian spirits already have access to the best of the three Anima generation effects universal to each spirit type, as it is multiplicative with many sources of Anima Charge, and this one gains access to another bonus on top of that. Unfortunately, the Guardian spirit skill isn't reliable enough to hit people with, as that would make your strategy in Yokai Shift strong and self contained. Also, there are more water resistant enemies than other types in the game.
