The nuppeppo as illustrated by Toriyama Sekien.

A nuppeppo or nuppefuhofu is a spirit or yokai in Japanese folklore.


Nuppeppo looks like a chunk of dead flesh walking by itself. Aside from its massive flabs, the only features are its arms and legs -- and its horrid smell. It deserves the title of the ugliest yokai.


Nuppeppo usually slowly walks at midnight in desert places like ruined temples or near graveyards but also appears to derive satisfaction from frightening people when they meet on the street at night.
