The Nue(Chimera japonicus.) is only found in remote areas of Japan where it is regarded as bringing bad luck because of its black cloud of venom, emitted when disturbed.
The Nue is 4 to 5 feet long and 2 to 4 feet high. They have the head of a monkey and a raccoon dog body, although they are more commonly smelt. It lives in high, remote areas of Japan and feeds on small game. Whether they have come into contact with the Japanese Ryu is unknown.
