The ''Yamata no Orochi'' is an eight-headed, eight-tailed serpentine monster in Myth/JapaneseMythology, similar in appearance to the [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Lernaean Hydra]], give or take a head or two. According to Shinto legend, the Orochi was defeated by the storm god Susano-o, who while WalkingTheEarth after getting booted out of Heaven, answered a request for aid by two earthly deities who were forced by the Orochi to hand over one of their daughters every year to be devoured by the beast, and were now down to their eighth and last one, [[BarrierMaiden Princess Kushinada]]. Just to distinguish the tale from Western dragon slaying myths, Susano-o first [[AttractiveBentGender lured]] the Orochi out by [[WholesomeCrossdresser disguising himself as Kushinada]] (with the real one [[ShapeShifting disguised as a comb]] in his hair), and then killed it by setting out a bowl of strong sake for each head, letting it drink itself into a stupor, ''then'' lopping them off. Inside Orochi's body, Susano-o [[RandomDrop found]] the sword ''[[NamedWeapons Ame-no-Murakumo-no-Tsurugi]]'' ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kusanagi "Sword of the Gathering Clouds of Heaven"]]) that was later re-named "{{Kusanagi}}" ("Grass Cutter"), and is one of [[TheImperialRegalia Japan's Three Sacred Treasures]].

* In ''VideoGame/LenEn'', there are siblings Adagumo no Yaorochi and Saragimaru who're youkai born from Yamata no Orochi's corpse. Yaorochi wants to restore the {{Kusanagi}} sword and provokes the incident. She is not evil whatsoever, it's just that she feels a connection with the sword because she was born from Orochi's arm.

* One of the [[BigBad main villains]] of ''{{Naruto}}'' is Orochimaru, a rogue ninja with the ability to summon snakes (And oddly, the {{Kusanagi}} sword.) In this case, he's actually based on the character of the same name from the folktale ''Jiraiya Goketsu Monogatari'' (As are Jiraiya and Tsunade, of course). However, since the original Orochimaru was likely named after the Orochi, we'll keep him here.

* In ''Manga/ShamanKing'', Bokuto no Ryu's [[spoiler:spirit ally Tokagero's Oversoul form is an eight-headed dragon on top of a Formula One car.]] In addition, one of Ryu's strongest attacks is his "Ame-No-Murakumo that slew Yamata-No-Orochi", which surrounds his wooden sword in cloud-like swirls of energy before slashing. A bit of a mix-up of the legend's particulars[[note]]as mentioned above, the ame-no-murakumo was found ''after'' the orochi was killed[[/note]], but cool either way.
