Nue are chimera-like yokai, sporting the body of a tiger, head of a monkey and with their tail replaced with a snake. It is capable of performing various physical attacks such as raking the player with its claws and rolling over them, and can also spew poison from its tail as well as shoot a short lightning beam from its mouth and summon lightning bolts by roaring.


A Nue is first fought during The Spirit Stone Slumbers and is the first boss of the mission, guarding the entrance to the tomb below the shrine of Dazaifu.
