Amabiko Nyuudo (JP: 尼彦入道 Amabiko Irino)

An Aggressive Amabiko appears! - This one was encountered one night at Irino beach, in Hyūga (Miyazaki Prefecture) sometime in 1876. - The creature had “3 pairs of 3 legs” [total count of x9!] and a golden feathery (or scaly?) body topped with the bald head of a monk:

This bird man appeared from the sea before a samurai known as “Shibata” and told the same prophecy to what Amabiko told:  “From this day forward, plentiful harvest will continue for six years, but awful diseases & colds will also spread! Unless you keep a picture of my image and worship it every morning and evening!!! You will be spared from disease and misfortune will leave!" – the creature then dissappeared back into the tides.. [See last slide for the og image.]

—Again this one gave the exact same prediction as what the monkey like Amabiko gave, but coming from him ...it feels a bit more threatening.. almost like “worship me or else!!” - His appearance/name brings to mind Mikoshi Nyuudo (and other Onyudo: Youkai priests or monks that are usually bad guys and will try to eat ya.) – Though i suppose looks can be deceiving: It seems that just like amabie and the others, he only wants to help... (I guess that all prophetic beasts just can’t be as cute as the Amabie.)

Because he has 9 legs rather than just 3, he’s pretty unique from the other ones: ((I’d assume the extra legs where for emphasis. (3 is a number representing vices in Buddhism, x3 sets of 3 legs might mean hes pretty bad?)) - Hes usually called “Amabiko Nyuudo” as said his head is bald like a monks: but I’ve also seen him nick named “Amabie Irido” as well (presumably named after the beach he appeared on!) - The area which it appeared is known as Irino beach: a stunningly beautiful surfing location: Unfortunately, its also noted for shark attacks. - [Perhaps also explaining the almost aggressive nature of this yokai? - Kids, Be careful near the beach at night!! there’s a strange monk with sharp teeth who will appear and lecture you!!]
