Victorious over Wendigo


Oni (鬼?) are creatures from Japanese folklore, variously translated as demons, devils, ogres or trolls. They are popular characters in Japanese art, literature and theatre.[[|[1]]]

Depictions of oni vary widely but usually portray them as hideous, gigantic creatures with sharp claws, wild hair, and two long horns growing from their heads.[[|[2]]] They are humanoid for the most part, but occasionally, they are shown with unnatural features such as odd numbers of eyes or extra fingers and toes.[[|[3]]] Their skin may be any number of colors, but red and blue are particularly common.[[|[4]]][[|[5]]]

They are often depicted wearing tiger-skin loincloths and carrying iron clubs, called kanabō (金棒?). This image leads to the expression "oni with an iron club" (鬼に金棒 oni-ni-kanabō?), that is, to be invincible or undefeatable. It can also be used in the sense of "strong beyond strong", or having one's natural quality enhanced or supplemented by the use of some tool.

Battle vs. Wendigo[]

In a Medieval era Japanese town, an Oni mercilessly smashes it with his kanabo. Suddenly, from one of the homes, it hears screams and chewing noises echoing out. It walks over, and sees a wendigo, blood dripping from it's claws and mouth, step out. The oni roars at it, with the wendigo responding with a ear-splitting scream. The oni charges, swinging his club. He destorys the house, but the wendigo dodges. The wendigo jumps through the air and lands on the oni's back.

The wendigo scraches and claws the back of the orge like it's a scraching post. The oni swings his club backwards, to try and squash his attacker, but the wendigo jumps off his back, so the oni only knocks himself down and out. The wendigo, thinking that the oni is dead, flips him over and starts to chew on his right arm.

The pain of this wakes the oni back up, who uses his tusks bite down on the wendigo. It let's out anouther scream, causing the oni to back off and cover his ears. The wendigo stumbles over, revealing the large gash that the oni left. The oni, his arm know starting to bleed, charges with his horns, stabbing through the wendigo. The oni pulls his horns out, and the wendigo lets out a weak scream before falling over. The oni grabs his kanabo, and uses it to smash the wendigo into a red stain in the ground. He then drops his weapon and roars in triumph.

Winner: Oni
