Oni are ancient Japanese monsters.


The Oni are ancient Japanese demons that were originally unseen, but were later anthropomorphised to have human body parts.


They have varying portrayals in art, but most commonly are horned demons that have a humanoid body and wear tiger-striped clothing. They can usually have an odd number of body parts and are predominantly red or blue.
