Amanojaku, Tenjaku (天邪鬼*)? or Amano Sakugami (天朔神*)? is an oni well known in Japan for the fairytale Urikohime (Melon Princess), in which a girl lets him into her house where it then devours her and impersonates her using her flesh. He is born by Amanozako alone.

"Origin: Japan. An evil demon that can read people's minds. Also known as Ama no Sakugami, it reads minds, then says/does the opposite. It is also said to eat humans from the inside, then becoming them by wearing their skin."

  • Like Echidna, Amanojaku has a theme opposite of its alignment.
  • In the iOS localization of Shin Megami Tensei, this demon is called "Amanojaku" in the demonic compendium, but in the visionary scene "Bloody Apron," it is addressed as "Amano Sakugami" instead. In the Japanese version of Shin Megami Tensei, he is consistently known as "Amano Sakugami."
