Wily Beast and Weakest Creature (Stage 6)

The Primate Spirit Garden (霊長園 Reichouen) is a large park resembling a kofun burial mound, located in the Animal Realm. While it's typically a lush, natural location, part of it was transformed into a high-tech fortress by Keiki Haniyasushin during the events of Wily Beast and Weakest Creature.

General Information[edit]

As the one major location in the Animal Realm that's lush with nature, the Garden is typically treated as a recreation spot by the resident animal spirits, as well as a place of captivity for the realm's human spirits. It bears a strong resemblance to the real-world Daisenryou Kofun, with a swamp surrounding the keyhole-shaped central island.

During Wily Beast and Weakest Creature, one of the Garden's main buildings was remodeled into a fortress by Keiki Haniyasushin as part of a hostile takeover to liberate the human spirits. The interior of the fortress is covered in holographic panels with a sci-fi aesthetic, featuring stylized icons of haniwa in certain places. The fortress may have been dismantled after Keiki's defeat.

Basis[edit]

The Daisenryou Kofun is the largest kofun in Japan, commonly accepted (though not outright confirmed) to be the tomb of Emperor Nintoku. Its approval as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2019 was part of ZUN's inspiration for the in-game location, according to the game's Strange Creators of Outer World interview.
