Youkai 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]].
