|Yokai and bakemono are still relevant in Japanese culture. There are so many movies, anime, etc. that have themes of these supernatural beings from folklore. Anyone familiar with the anime, Inuyasha, will have heard the term yokai many, many times.|
Yōkai (妖怪, literally demon, spirit, or monster) are a class of preternatural creatures in Japanese folklore ranging from the evil oni (ogre) to the mischievous kitsune (fox) or snow woman Yuki-onna. Some possess part animal and part human features (e.g. Kappa and Tengu). Yōkai generally have a sort of spiritual or supernatural power. Yōkai that have the ability to shape-shift are called obake. read more
Here we have a yokai shape shifting egg character!
Literal Translation: Little Ghost1 Egg
Released: 2006 ?
This "fried egg" has a scary name but don't say things like he is bad. He is extremely runny and half-cooked. His hobby is changing his form. What kind of delicious cuisine will he take the form of? Occasionally there are times when he is not successful. They can melt together and accidentally change form.
