|~ Hiruko unleashing his ultimate weapon, Yatsurao.|
Yatsurao (八面王, "The King of Eight Faces" in Japanese) is a giant demonic statue and a minor villain in the 2002 videogame Shinobi.
Yatsurao AwakensEditHiruko after his return to the world of the living, attempts to sacrifice his living descendant Kagari Ubusuna as part of a dark ritual to reawaken him (as he also referred it as him) in order to use Yasturao as a weapon to subujugate the world once more.
Hotsuma eventually defeats Yatsurao and saved her, but its spirit along with the collective Yin of countless souls of murdered people and slain Hellspawn demons, was absorbed by Hiruko, giving him youth and even more power, which Hiruko reveals this to be his plan all along.
- Yatsurao is a shikigami, a supernatural entity found in Japanese folklore.
