Menōmaru, a Moth Daiyōkai.

Moth Yōkai, like many other types of Yōkai, can take on humanoid forms to conceal themselves among humans, but even in this form they still posses great strength. They can also create silk with acidic properties which can inflict great burns on both Humans and Hanyōs, with this silk they can also make large cocoons in which to trap their opponents and give them a slow and painful death. When in their true moth form, they can fly and create powerful blasts of wind and even whirlwinds. Moth Daiyōkai have shown greater abilities, such as creating energy beams, summon demons, powerful breath, control over yōkai moths and even being able to absorb countless souls at once.

HistoryEdit

200 years ago, a clan of moth yōkai from the Asian continent, led by their lord Hyōga, followed in the wake of the Mongol army during its invasion of Japan, in order to capture the souls of those slain in battle. However, they were defeated by the ruler of the western lands, the great dog daiyōkai Inu no Taishō, who sealed Hyōga and his son Menōmaru within the Tree of Ages. However 200 years later, Menōmaru would escape and seek to reclaim his father's powers and conquer the world, and nearly succeeded, but was narrowly defeated by the son of the Inu no Taishō, the hanyō Inuyasha.
