Youkai[[note]]alternative spelling Yōkai[[/note]] are a widely-varied collection of various supernatural creatures that pop up in UsefulNotes/{{Shinto}} religion. They have a lot in common with TheFairFolk. Some youkai are good, others are evil, and many are [[BlueAndOrangeMorality different]]. Some are mischievous, others avoid humans entirely. Shinto is an animist religion, and youkai are often associated with natural features such as forests and mountains. This word is often translated as "demon" in Western translations, but since that term is generally associated with [[AlwaysChaoticEvil pure evil]], that does not adequately describe the creatures in question -- they are more like TheFairFolk, spanning the entire moral range between good, mischievous, neutral, and actually evil. The closest true Western equivalent is probably that of the ancient Roman [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genius_(mythology) genii]] or [[OurSpiritsAreDifferent spirits]].

Supernatural creatures drawn from Western sources often turn out to seem more like youkai in Japanese works. For instance, vampires. [[note]]See the section on oni below.[[/note]] In the West you've got Nosferatu -- a grotesque, undead monster who burns in sunlight and murders to preserve his hideous unlife. In Japan you've got [[CuteMonsterGirl exceptionally cute]] {{Fanservice}} protagonist [[Manga/RosarioToVampire Moka Akashiya]], who is not undead, harbors no ill-will towards the sun, and drinks tiny amounts of blood that leave her "victim" light-headed at worst, but who has a SuperpoweredEvilSide who can (and will if you look at her the wrong way) kick your ass thoroughly.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/YokaiWatch'':
** Everfore ("Oiran" in Japan) is related to the nuppeppo yokai but is not directly based on it. She is the evolved form of Grumples after fusing her with Ageless Powder. She goes from a wrinkly old woman to a beautiful, young looking one. It's implied that the Ageless Powder is a powdered form of nuppeppo.
** Dismarelda ("Don'yorinu" in Japan) seems to be loosely based off of nuppeppo. She is a huge purple blob that puts people in a bad mood.
