Strange Creators of Outer World (Who's Who of Humans & Youkai in Gensokyo - Everlasting Edition)

Saki Kurokoma (驪駒 早鬼 Kurokoma Saki) is the extra boss of Wily Beast and Weakest Creature. She runs the Keiga Family, a major organization of beast spirits in the Animal Realm of hell.

General Information[edit]

Saki first appears as the extra boss of Wily Beast and Weakest Creature and is the leader of the wolf spirits. In terms of height, she is somewhat short, and she's conscious enough of this that she compensates by always standing tall and with her wings spread. [1]

Personality[edit]

Saki has a casual (but not rude) personality. She was quite pumped to fight the heroine. She also respects others' strength even if they are an enemy. She is quite ambitious and does not hesitate to act, quickly planning on conquering hell and the surface when seeing a chance to.

Character Basis[edit]

Attention: This section is a stub and it needs expanding with more information related to the section's topic. If you can add to it in any way, please do so.

Origin[edit]

Saki is based on Kai-no-Kurokoma (甲斐の黒駒, lit. Black-coated Horse from Kai), a legendary horse said to be owned and cherished by Prince Shoutoku that could fly through the sky. It was a horse that Shoutoku rode to various localities to spread the word of Buddhism. It was also said the Prince often rode this horse to Ikaruga (Hōryū-ji) and that the horse had miraculous powers on top of the ability to fly.

Name[edit]

Saki's full name is Saki Kurokoma (早鬼 驪駒). Her name consists of characters meaning speed (早 Sa) and demon (鬼 Ki). Her name might be a reference to her ability. The second character also appears in Japanese title of Wily Beast and Weakest Creature (鬼形獣).

Kurokoma is taken from what she is inspired by Kurokoma (黒駒) a legendary horse said to be owned by Prince Shoutoku that could fly through the sky. Although the kanji in her last name is different. First character means black horse (驪 Kuro) and second meaning horse (駒 Koma).

Design[edit]

Saki has red eyes and black hair. She has black wings and a black horse tail. Her outfit is reminiscent of cowboys, where she wears a brown cowboy hat, a light turquoise bandanna, and diagonal-plaid patterned clothes.

Story[edit]

Games[edit]

Wily Beast and Weakest Creature

She teamed up with the other groups to stage the Hell invasion to overthrow Keiki Haniyasushin. In the extra stage, she once again invades Hell after hearing of Keiki's defeat and plans to do the same to the surface world, this time to try and take them over for herself.

Relationships[edit]

Yachie Kicchou and Keiki Haniyasushin

Saki gets along very poorly with both Yachie and Keiki, but respects their strength.

Toyosatomimi no Miko

Given the legend that Saki was the horse of Prince Shoutoku, which is Toyosatomimi no Miko's former name, there is a high likelihood that the pair of them know each other, although this is not yet confirmed.

Yuuma Toutetsu

Judging by the dialogue of the Extra Stages in the eagle spirit scenarios, it is suspected that Saki loathes Yuuma more so than Yachie and Keiki, saying that Toutetsu "is the worst".
