* And a villainous example appears in [[Music/{{Vocaloid}} Kagamine Len's]] "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmOeqLHwn5g Dream-Eating Monochrome Baku]]," where the titular character eats the nightmares of a young girl but later returns to take away all her aspirations as payment. This is a rather unusual depiction of the baku, which is generally portrayed as a benevolent spirit. [[spoiler: The sequel song "[[http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm25994904 Sleeping Beauty]]" reveals that he ''is'' a benevolent spirit... to all of one person, who was his lover and died of an unspecified cause. He steals the dreams of other people and takes away their aspirations in order to give her the energy to stay alive, but in a vegetative state.]]
