Yami is the main antagonist of Capcom's 3D action game Okami starring Amaterasu. Yami is also final boss of Tatsunoko VS Capcom and has three different forms. Yami's origins are unclear, as very little is said about him until the very end of Okami,
and his very existence is only revealed after Amaterasu confronts Ninetails at the peak of Oni Island. Ninetails describes Yami as being "the absolute ruler of all evil beings" and "the ultimate symbol of darkness". In Ōkamiden it's revealed that he had been the vessel of darkness for Akuro, likely willingly, given the dark
spirit's unusual reverence for the demon.
