Youkai (妖怪, Yōkai) are a group of various species of supernatural beings native to Asia shown in High School DxD.

AppearanceEdit

Depending upon their specific species, Youkai have a plethora of different forms, ranging from the fox-like kitsune (such as Kunou and Yasaka) to the cat-eared Nekomata (such as Koneko and Kuroka). However, most Youkai either possess a human-like form with animalistic accents or have to shapeshift to assume such a form.

AbilitiesEdit

The abilities of each Youkai differs in accordance to the species. There are two distinctive types of Youkai, the Japanese Youkai and the Chinese Youkai. There are Youkai who have shown the ability to rival an Ultimate-Class Devil and are commonly known as Daiyoukai (大妖怪, Daiyōkai, lit. "Great Youkai").
