Yokai Weapons are special Weapons in Nioh 2. Yokai Weapons can be found for any of the in-game weapon categories, and are obtained by defeating Yokai Enemies in game. They have special properties, but are also corrupted by the Yokai Realm. This page covers a full list of Yokai Weapons in Nioh 2 and information on their effects.
What is a Yokai Weapon in Nioh 2?
Yokai weapons are imbued with Corruption and build up the Corruption Status Effect on those it is used against. Enemies that are inflicted with the Corrupted Status Ailment receive 35% increased Ki damage which is absorbed by their attacker.
What do Yokai Weapons do in Nioh 2?
When you inflict damage on an enemy with a Yokai Weapon or Yokai Ability, your Sentience Gauge will build up. When it fills completely, you will achieve an Awakened State, during which your weapon's power will be enhanced - It increases your melee damage by 30% and the last attack of a strong attack string will also shoot a corruption-imbued sword beam.
When it awakens you also hear the thoughts of the Yokai weapon up to 5 times based on your familiarity tier with the weapon. You will need at least an exotic version of the weapon to be able to hear all 5 thoughts.
Yokai Weapons can use Soul Cores as Soul Matching material, gaining access to unique special effects through Transferring or Inheritance.

Note that any weapon that doesn't have a fixed imbue element effect can be a Yokai Weapon if they drop with Imbue Corruption on it. These weapons also have one of two generic voice lines:
Blood... More blood... I need more!
That's right! Cry! Scream! And then die! Ha ha ha!
Ha ha ha! More blood! More guts! MORE!
Ha ha, you're a feisty one! Come on, keep swinging for me...
Keep swinging! Kill every last one of them! Ha Ha!
Yes, yes... I'll kill 'em all! Hee hee hee!
The color of blood, the crimson glow... Magnificent, is it not?
It's still not enough.. Give me more blood!
I want to bathe in their blood! Hee hee hee!
More, more, more! I want to kill more!
With about 220% sentience, nyotengu, archyokai, magatsuhi, genryu+, and 50% anima bonus on kurama sword dance, you can have the awakened state practically every enemy, and nyotengu every global cooldown for yokai abilities. That accounts for 70% melee damage, 45% yokai ability damage on corrupted enemy (with Tatarimoke), and 150% anima gain with a kurama sword dance combo. Ki, whether it's keeping the enemies down or keeping yours up will never be an issue.
Head Ninja's Splitstaff is an yokai weapon.
The text for it is as following;
"Blood... More blood... I need more!"
"That's right! Cry! Scream! And then die! Ha ha ha!"
"Ha ha ha! More blood! More guts! MORE!"
"Ha ha, you're a feisty one! Come on, keep swinging for me..."
"Keep swinging! Kill every last one of them! Ha ha!"
I've seen people using Claws on their hands, but I can't find the name of the weapon or the Stats. Can you help me, please?
have Orochi Odachi to
This is missing Shuten Doji's Club (axe)
So, the hunters switch glaive isn't a yokai weapon. Some weapons can have the yokai modifier, and it gives them generic yokai weapon dialogue instead of the unique dialogue of other weapons, so the hunters glaive is a regular weapon, which CAN have the yokai weapon element
Is these weapons OK against yokai even if they are all resistant to corruption? Tips on corruption perk says that KI damage is done basing on corruption resistance.
Interesting fact about these, these are the only weapons that can be soul matched with soul cores. This is helpful since this game introduced the "you can only soul match with items of the same rarity rule.(soul cores don't have rarity)
i realy hope there is more than just 1 type of yokai sword other than Tokagemaru
