There are some who say that the demonic, savage Oni originate in the Mists, others from someplace even more distant, dark, and cut off from the world of sanity. They are killers from beyond, appearing from nowhere to butcher their victims, for what reason no one knows. Whatever their purpose or origin, the Oni are among the most deadly things on two legs in Cantha.

The Guild Wars Factions Manuscripts

Oni are capable of appearing anywhere throughout Cantha, though they do not show up in Kaineng City for some reason. There are some, such as Dauv Merishahl, that believe that the oni are Outcasts in an advanced state of corruption and insanity caused by Kanaxai's influence from the Deep. According to Andru Pitrak, the oni only began to appear after the Jade Wind.

  • In Japanese folklore, oni are either invisible spirits or gods that cause disasters and have a taste for human flesh, or large brutish ogre-like creatures with claws and a pair of horns.
