Dragon from China;

The legend says that the Yellow Emperor (黄帝Huáng Dì) used a snake to crest. Whenever he was winner of a new tribe, he added emblem of its own enemy, thus turning the snake into a composite creature, the dragon. Huang Di was immortalized in the dragon image of his arms. The Chinese dragon has the body of a snake, scales and tail of a fish, antlers of a deer, face of a qilin (mythical creature like a deer with his body covered with fire), greenhouses and eagle eyes of a demon. It flies in the sky amidst the clouds. Almost all the images of Chinese dragons represent them playing with a pearl of fire. It is assumed that the latter gives them their power and allows them to go up to heaven.

On the other hand, as the Chinese consider Huang Di as their ancestor, they sometimes call themselves "descendants of the dragon."



Qilin;

According to the Shuowen jiezi (说文解字), dictionary of the Han dynasty, the qilin an animal is gentle and kind, with a corps of deer, ox tail and a single horn (sometimes Antler). Duan Yucai (段玉裁), literate who lived under the Qing, said in its edition commented that his horn, wrapped in flesh unlike that of rhinoceros, is a symbol of wisdom and not weapons, that it can separate the righteous those who have something to blame. It has split hooves or five fingers. Others lend him a spotted coat and a yellow belly, this description is perhaps influenced by the appearance of the giraffe returned to Africa in 1414 by Zheng He and hosted by the emperor as a qilin, testimony of his good government.



Amikiri;

The amikiri (Japanese:網切り), literally "Cutter net" is a creature of Japanese mythology. It is said that the amikiri resembles a cross between a bird, a lobster and a snake. THE amikiri is primarily an inhabitant of the sea, however, it can "swim" in the air. This creature has the bad habit of cutting the nets (both nets of fishermen and nets).



Bonnacon;

The bonnacon is a mythical animal native to Asia and Greece. This is a bull whose horns turned inwards to prevent the attack. His short mane and his ponytail suggest that this would actually bison.

To attack, since its horns did not enable him to do so, it emmettrait gas like a skunk, with a special power to burn his enemy.



Houkou;

Houkou is a spirit dog in Japanese mythology. It has 5 tails and a white body. He lives inside trees which it is spiritually connected. Each of its tail has a power of one of the elements 5, when it uses the power of each of its tails at the same time, there is an earthquake. Houkou is able to create illusions to frighten some people (especially those who damage trees). In many ways, resembles Houkou Inugamai.houkou is part of bijus, demons in queues, houkou and one-fifth of the bijus, with the help of nibi, houkou tried to kill the most powerful bijus, which demon kyubi has a reserve of chakra infinite! of course they were massacred, the legend says that nibi would have been treated by the god of death, but it is unclear what is to happen houkou ...
