In-Game Description

Pronounced "Hee no EN mah." A yokai taking the form of a young woman. Deceives humans and drinks their blood. The name Hino-enma literally means "flying bad luck", and she is believed to cause all manner of troubles and misfortunes. She is believed to have been born from the angry soul of an innocent woman senselessly struck down in the heat of a battle.
Drinking the blood of men to replenish her life force and beauty, she hides her agression - and insanity. Her malevolence is well enough known that her name has been used as an idiom since times of old. Obsession is a cruel mistress.
Enchants men to immobilize them, then sucks their blood and Ki life-force. The insidious part is that your mind may remain clear while your body freezes like a stone. When you face the Hino-Enma, make sure to carry effective measures for paralysis.


Hino-Enma is first encountered as the boss of the third main mission: Deep in the Shadows. She is later found as one the four bosses that the player must defeat before being able to ride the elevator in the 18th mission: The Demon King Revealed.

She may also be faced as a boss in some side-missions.



  • If Hino-Enma grabs a player, she cannot be hit until she has released them.
  • If the player has no paralysis resistance, Hino-Enma's projectiles will instantly paralyze the player.
